GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT
To the Students of the
University of Maryland.
Greetings to the new students !
During the year 1933-34 we hope the Uni-
versity of Maryland will make new records
that we will be proud of. The students who
are entering the University for the first time
will have an important part in making these
records and in laying the foundaf.jn for rec-
ords in the years to follow.
We believe the new students come with high
ideals, and we want to help you to accomplish
these ideals. We want you to do well for the
sake of your parents and your high school
teachers and for your own sake.
Greetings are extended also to the former
students who are returning to the University.
We feel we can depend upon you to assist the
teachers and the administrative staff in main-
taining high standards even in a period of
depression. Our standards must not be low-
I wish it were possible to say something to
help defeat an insidious enemy of every one
of us ; namely. Procrastination. Let us keep
our work up to date. Let us remember that
the best kind of progress in an educational
institution is daily progress, and the one who
neglects his work for a period and then r*
doubles his efforts cannot get as good results
as he can from steady application.
Let me commend especially the opportunities
for strengthening your religious life while at-
tending the University. The local pastors and
other members of the Council on Religious
Work will be glad to help you find a place in
some religious activity where you can serve.
R. A. PEARSON.
DEAN ADELE STAMP
"M" BOOK GREETINGS FOR 1933
Dear New and Old Students:
This is a brief note to welcome all of you
to our campus, the ones of you who are re-
turning and also the ones who are coming to
us for the first time.
I hope your life here will be a happy one.
You remember the old adage, "All work and
no play makes Jack a dull boy," and so I
would advise you not to work all the time nor
to play all the time ; however, to get the most
out of your college career you should take part
in some extra-curricular activities. Do not ti*y
to take part in all. Choose one or two rather
than try to spread yourself thin over a large
surface. Four years of a well-rounded college
life are an asset not to be regarded lightly
and give you a preparation for life which is
not to be had in any other way.
I am sure the years spent here will be rich
and fruitful and ones that will be ever cher-
ished in your memory.
ADELE H. STAMP,
Dean of Women.

Perhaps the best and most graphic illustra-
tion of the remarkable pi'ogress the University
of Maryland has made since its founding in
1807 is found on the College Park campus in
the old Mechanical Engineering Building, the
first building in the State devoted to the teach-
ing of engineering. Erected in 1895, this
building today forms a section only of the
Engineering group, which includes a small
auditorium, seating 250 persons, with other
buildings to house electrical engineering, civil
and mechanical engineering, their laboratories
and equipment, and with the original building
housing only a shop, and a few classrooms.
The advances made since its construction in
1895 are commensurate with the progress of
the entire University.
The present University of Maryland was,
originally, two separate institutions, the Uni-
versity of Maryland', founded in 1807 under
the name of the College of Medicine of Mary-
land, and the Maryland State College, founded
in 1856 at College Park as the Maryland Agri-
The College of Medicine of Maryland was
first located at Lombard and Greene Streets,
in Baltimore, and the building which was
erected to house it in 1814-15 is the oldest
structure in America devoted to the teaching
In 1812, the General Assembly of Maryland
authorized the College of Medicine of Maryland
to "annex or constitute faculties of divinity,
law, and arts and sciences," these to form an
institution to be known as the University of
Maryland. In 1813, a move was made to es-
tablish the "faculty of law," and, in 1823, a
school of law was opened. Subsequently, a
College of Dentistry, a School of Pharmacy,
and a School of Nursing were added. The
first-named is the oldest Dental College in the
In 1856 was established the Maryland Agri-
cultural College, which later became the Land
Grant College of Maryland. It was conducted
for a num-ber of years as a private institu-
tion, but financial disasters and the general
depression which followed the Civil War made
it necessary for the College to appeal to the
State Legislature in 1866 for assistance. In
1916 a new charter was granted to it as Mary-
land State College and the State took complete
control. An act of the Legislature in 1920
united the old University of Maryland with
the Maryland State College, to form the present
University of Maryland with branches in Balti-
more and College Park.
Five new buildings have been erected within
the past three years and two more will be
completed by June, 1934. Enrollment sinae
1912 has jumped from 130 to 2,000.
Increased facilities are likewise noted in Bal-
timore, with a splendid new $1,500,000 hospital
under construction, a new law building opened
scarcely a year ago, and a new dentistry and
pharmacy building but recently put into use.
Enrollment in the Baltimore branch of the
University averages about 1,500.

THE UNIVERSITY AND STUDENT
Student activities in the University are not
actually regulated, but the student organiza-
tions are responsible to a faculty committee
for any action that might reflect on the insti-
tution. This body, the Student Affairs Com-
mittee, rules on matters affecting the general
welfare of the students and their Alma Mater,
subject to the approval of the President. "
Eligibility to Represent the University
No student organization can be formed with-
out the consent of the committee. Without
such consent and approval no organization
which in any way represents the University
before the public, or which purports to be a
University organization or organization of
University students, may use the name of the
University in connection with its own name,
or in connection with its members as students.
Only students in good standing are eligible
to represent the University in extra-curricular
contests. No student while on probation may
represent the University in such events as
athletic contests, glee club concerts, dramatic
performances, and debates.
In the government of the University, the
President and faculty rely chiefly upon the
sense of responsibility of the students. The
student who pursues his studies diligently,
attends classes regularly, lives honorably, and
maintains good behavior, meets this responsi-
bility. In the interest of the general welfare
of the University, those who fail to maintain
these standards are eliminated. Students are
under the direct supervision of the University
only when on the campus, but they are re-
sponsible to the University for their conduct
wherever they may be.
RELIGIOUS WORK COUNCIL
The religious work carried on at the Uni-
versity is supervised by the Religious Work
(.:!ouricil, of which Dr. Pearson is chairman.
The Council is composed of the student pas-
tors, and representatives of all the religious
clubs, of the faculty, and of the student body
as a whole.
Religious speakers are obtained for special
occasions as well as for the regular Sunday
evening vesper services. Every student is
given the opportunity to worship on the cam-
pus, either in a service embodying all faiths,
or in a club of his own denomination.
The Council works in close co-operation
with the Maryland Christian Association and
the Committee on Non-Resident Lecturers.
Most of the major religious denominations
at Maryland have Student Pastors who min-
ister especially to the students of their denom-
ination. The Student Pastors have an office
in the Student Center, where each has his
office hours during the week. The Baptist,
Episcopalian, Presbyterian, and Lutheran stu-
dents have denominational clubs which meet
regularly during the year.

The Automobile Parking Regulations are
for the purpose of protecting the appearance
of our campus as well as for personal safety
and convenience. These regulations, which
have been in operation for the past two years,
have been found very beneficial to our campus.
The following are the regulations proposed by
our Campus Parking Committee and approved
by the Administration :
Automobiles MUST NOT BE PARKED
NOR STOPPED on any of the campus roads
except to take on or discharge passengers.
Hanging on cars is positively prohibited. Fast
driving and rounding curves at a high rate ot
speed is not permitted. Blowing horns in
front of buildings disturbs class activities and

nance of property, convenience, and personal
safety . Any student who fails to observe these
regulations may be deprived of the use of his
car and driving' privileges on the campus, and
continued violations may mean suspension from

GREETINGS TO THE INCOMING
I wish to extend the sincere greetings and
best wishes of the student body to the incom-

the University of Maryland will be pleasant
and filled with success.
Traditions are growing at our University
and possibly the most useful one is the custom
of saying "hello." We want to know you and
we want you to know us, and we feel that this
is an excellent means of accomplishing the
Personally, I want you all to feel that the
Student Government Association is willing to
co-operate with you at all times.
Very truly yours,
President of Student Government Association.
STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION
Student government at Maryland has at-
tained unusual heights in efficiency and or-
ganization during the past year with the Uni-
versity administration adopting a broad and
elastic policy in permitting students to prac-
tice self-government as far as is practicable.
Final jurisdiction is, of course, vested in the
President of the University.
The presidency of the Student Government
Association is the highest position open to an
undergraduate and one of utmost responsibil-
ity. The student body is represented on the
Student Congress and Executive Council by
delegates chosen from every group on the cam-
pus, and it is in these two bodies that legisla-
tion directly concerned with rules and regu-
lations governing undergraduate life originates.
The President of the Student Government As-
sociation is chairman of the Executive Coun-
cil, and the Vice-President of the Student Gov-
ernment Association is chairman of the Stu-
Meetings of these organizations are held
twice each month or on special occasions at
the direction of the President of the S. G. A.
Congress meetings are open to the public,
but Executive Council sessions are closed.
All student activities under the Association
are financed by one of the most complete sub-
sidization plans in university or college circles
of the country. The activities fee of $10 paid
by each student upon entrance to the Univer-
sity is apportioned between publications, dra-
matics, debate, opera, and the host of similar
functions on a percentage basis, with the re-
sult that each undergraduate realizes returns
on his investment far in excess of the original
fee. Thus, admittance to all dramatic and
operatic performances is free, all publications
are distributed, without chai-ge, to those who
have paid the fee, and similar benefits which
might otherwise occasion financial difficulties
are obtained without hardship to the student.

HANDLING OF FINANCES OF STUDENT
In the spring of 1930. the Student Govern-
ment Association passed a resolution to charge
each student a general activities fee of ten
dollars ($10.00) per year, which fee included
payment of his class dues and subscription to
The Diamondback, The Old Line, and The
Reveille, In 1931 the Opera Club, the Student
Band, and the Footlight Club were added to
this group, and each student receives in return
tickets to two performances of the Footlight
Club and one performance of the Opera Club.
Debate was also added in 1933.
The money received is prorated among the
aforementioned organizations, according to a
percentage schedule arranged by the Student
Government Association. The accounts of
these organizations and all of the general
student organizations, including The Ross-
bourg Club, Scabbard and Blade, and the
Maryland Christian Association, are grouped
in one account and are under the supervision
of a Faculty Adviser. At the beginning of
each school year, each organization submits
a budget for approval, and then writes an
order for each expenditure to be made. This
is checked against the budget items and, if
sufficient funds are available, is approved by
the Faculty Adviser. Various firms with which
the students deal have been notified that the
Student Government Association is not re-
sponsible for any contracted debts for which
an order has not been issued. Any student or
individual contracting debts without an order
is personally responsible.
Records, which are always open for inspec-
tion, are kept at the Central Office for each
organization. Besides, each organization treas-
urer keeps his own set of books, which serves
as a check upon the Central Office. The bills
are vouchered, and the accounts are audited
by the State Auditor at the end of the year.
In the first issue of The Diamondback of the
school year, a full statement is issued of all
accounts handled by the Central Office during
the previous year. A check, which eliminates
a great deal of misunderstanding, is also
maintained for the students upon the sale of
tickets for such functions as those held by
Footlight Club, the Opera Club, and the Ross-

Three student-edited and student-written
publications — The Diamondback, weekly news-
paper ; The Reveille, yearbook, and The Old
Line, quarterly comic magazine — are produced
by University of Maryland undergraduates as
official organs of the Student Government As-
The staffs of each of these publications are
composed of students from freshman, sopho-
more, junior and senior classes, with the edi-
tors chosen, except in unusual circumstances,
from members of the latter group. These edi-
tors are chosen by popular election each spring
from a group of candidates selected by the
outgoing editors and the Faculty Advisor of
Student Publications. Eligibility for positions
is determined by length of service, ability, and
freshman and sophomore staff records.
Shortly after registration, a meeting of can-
didates for Student Publications is held under
the supervision of the editors and business
managers, and questionnaires are issued to de-
termine the type of publication and depart-
ment in which the applicants wish to work.
No previous experience is necessary to become
members of a publications staff.
Scholastic credit has been granted by the
University for work on student publications
in conjunction with a special course in prac-
tical journalism. Freshmen become eligible for
the course only after a year's work on one
of the staffs.
The Diamondback, weekly newspaper, is pub-
lished every Monday and contains complete
University news and official bulletins with
which every student should be familiar. Op-
portunities are afforded undergraduates to se-
cure much valuable experience in advertising
and editorial lines. The Reveille is published
in June and contains a complete record of the
University work for the year, together with
summaries of spring sports results — a feature
almost unique in college annuals. The Old
Line appears four times each year, with pros-
pects bright for increasing the number of is-
sues until the magazine is established on a
Each undergraduate at Maryland is required
to pay a blanket sum of $10.00 on the day of
registration. This provides for a year's sub-
scription to the "Diamondback," the weekly

year; year's subscription to the "Old Line,"
quarterly, published four times during the
school year, and the "Reveille," annual, which
is issued about June 1st.

some member of the staff which he or she
wishes to join.
Hampered somewhat by mediocre staging
facilities, the Footlight Club, principal organi-
zation of campus thespians, has produced a
number of truly noteworthy plays during the
past five years.
Under the tutelage of Dr. Charles B. Hale,
talented coach, the Footlighters have staged
successfully an average of two plays a year,
often presenting a third performance of one-
act plays. Among the most recent vehicles
were "The Royal Family," "Holiday," "The
Dover Road," "Outward Bound," "The Queen's
Husband," and "Monsieur Beaucaire." The sole
Shakespearean effort of the Club, "Midsummer
Night's Dream," was presented by request be-
fore the Shakespearean Society of Washington
following a successful run on the campus.
Members of the B'ootlight Club are chosen

Footlighters, the Opera Club has made marked
progress since its foundation In 1924. Directed
by Prof. Louis B. Goodyear, the Club annu-
ally offers an outstanding opera which brings
to the local stage the best vocal and dramatic
talent of the campus.
The 1932-33 production was a re-showing,
by popular demand, of "The Mikado," and
drew capacity crowds for every performance.
"Ermine," "Yeoman of the Guard," "Cama-
nita," and "The Merryman and His Maid" are

GREETINGS FROM THE MEN'S
The Maryland Christian Association extends
to the new men a most cordial welcome into
our midst. A welcome that will maintain
its cordiality throughout the year with your
co-operation. This new period known as Col-
lege Life into which you will enter is one of
catastrophic possibilities. A life that has many
interests to offer you, not the least of which is
The Christian Association and all of its
members stand ready to help you, and invite
you to join with them in the search for a
wider, more liberal education.
To the Girls of the Class of 1937:
Greetings and best %vishes for the happiest
and most beneficial years of your life. The
change from high school to college is not easy.
You probably will not be greeted in the most
friendly manner by everyone — sophomores in
particular — but when things do not go exactly
your way during the first few weeks of your
college life, just "buck up" and remember
that w^e have all been through it once.
We want you to feel that Mai-yland is go-
ing to be your home during these coming years,
and that what you make of yourselves during
this time will have a larger influence upon
the molding of yovir character than perhaps
any other factor in your early life.
The Mainland Christian Association invites
you to participate in its endeavor to encour-
age the highest in sportsmanship, leadership,

MARYLAND CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
The Maryland Christian Association at the
University of Maryland is a voluntary fellow-
ship of men and women, both student and
faculty, who unite in the endeavor to find the
highest values in living and to make them
effective in daily life. It was formed in 1930
and its object is to achieve closer fellowship
and co-operation, and to promote an all-cam-
pus program to meet student and faculty
Each year the cabinet for men and women
works out its own statement of purpose and
its goals for the year, making a direct effort
in meet Ihe specific needs of the campus.
Some of the features of its program are
Freshman Commissions, Freshman Week Pro-
gram. Student Sunday, Freshman Discussion
Groups, Speakers, Vesper Services, Confer-
ences, Fireside Forums, and Social Events.
Every student and faculty member who is
in sympathy with the purpose of the Associa-
tion is invited to join, and to unite with the
other members in the search for individual
and corporate life at its best. The voting
membership consists of those who sign the
statement of purpose, thus voluntarily declar-
ing their desire and intention of seeking, in
close co-operation with all other members, the
best possible life. For many in this fellow-
ship the way is most clearly pointed by the
life of Jesus.
The affiliate membership is composed of
those who take part in any way in the activi-
ties of the association. The program is de-
signed to include and to serve all persons in
the campus community, andi all are invited
to participate in such phases of it as they
The plans and program are determined and
promoted by the two Cabinets, with the ad-
vice and aid of the Advisory Board. Meetings
are held monthly.
In all of their work, the Cabinets and Coun-
cil have the advice and help of the faculty
and student pastors.

Class. Many of the customs followed in years
past have been discarded, but those that re-
main are believed the best to which first-year
students have heretofoie been subjected by
Perhaps the one outstanding Maryland tra-
dition, and the one to which most attention
has been drawn, is known as the "hello"
habit — the habit of speaking cheerfully and
respectfully to upperclassmen and visitors to
the campus. You as freshmen will be favor-
ably impressed by the friendly attitude which
prevails among the undergraduates generally,
and the spirit engendered by years of practice
will go far toward making you feel "one of
the gang" rather than a stranger. This tra-
dition of friendliness is one which should be
fostered at all costs.
Regulations governing the organization of
the freshman class, together with a list of the
traditions which have been continued and
which must be observed by all first-year stu-
dents, will be found in Article V of the By-
Laws of the Student Government Association
Constitution. It is advisable that you famil-
iarize yourself with the contents of this Article
Each year a Sophomore-Freshman Struggle
is held on the lower campus to determine
whether or not freshmen will continue to wear
caps ; the numerals of the winning class are
inscribed on the base of the Terrapin Memorial
in front of the Ritchie Coliseum, a bronze
replica of a diamondback terrapin which was
presented to the University last year as a joint
gift of the Class of 1933 and the Student Gov-
It is the wish of the women of the Univer-
sity of Maryland to help their incoming class-
mates to become acclimated to college life.
For this purpose each one of the new students
is adopted by an upperclassman as a "little
sister." When she arrives on the campus, she
is greeted by her "big sister," who is ready
to advise her about "the ropes." "Little sis-
ters" are assigned by the Y. W. C. A.
Alpha Lambda Delta is the only freshman
women's honor fraternity on the campus. It
was founded at the University of Illinois in
1924, and the chapter at Maryland was estab-
lished in 1932. Freshmen women with an
average of 3.5 or over are eligible.
"Rabbit rules" are supposed to have been
abolished, but there are still certain "rules"
that the Freshmen have to obey that have been
made by the Sophomore Class.
Women who excel in scholarship, leadership,
citizenship and Christian character are eligi-
ble for the Women's Senior Honor Society in
their Senior Year. On Baccalaureate Sunday,
the outgoing members select the new organi-
zation from the Junior Class.
The Junior Class holds May Day each year
in honor of the Senior Class, out of which
they select by ballot the Queen of the May
and her four maids.
The Women's Student Government Asso-
ciation sends each year a delegate to the na-
The Women's Executive Council holds an
annual picnic at the end of the year.
To receive an award for athletics, the girl
must be an active member of the Women's
ADVICE TO FRESHMEN
Probably the best advice that we can give to
you as members of the Class of '37 is to
tell you that it is up to you to find out what
the University is going to mean to you, and
what part you, collectively and individually, are
going to play in the development of the Uni-
However, the following suggestions may
help you in your own orientation:
Do not forget that you are a Marylander
now. Your high school records of trophies
will not build your reputation here.
Learn all of the school songs and yells.
If the school spirit is not as good' as you
would like, remember that it never will be
unless you keep up your enthusiasm for the
next four years.
Wear your Frosh Caps and name tags. They
will actually be an aid in cementing your class
together and in introducing you toi the student
Win the Freshman-Sophomore Contest; get
your numerals on the Terrapin Memorial.
Start to work on your studies as soon as
the gun goes off. The easiest subjects usually
prove the hardest at examination time.
Divide your time wisely between studies,
athletics, and extra-curricular activities. Too
much time spent on any one will prove disas-
Attend all meetings of your class.
Be sure to speak to everyone you meet on
the campus. The Class of '36 was the first
class that did not do its share in maintaining
this tradition. Show them up!
Do not crib. Even if you are lucky enough
not to be expelled from school, the value of
your education immediately ceases.
The aim and dream of many a freshman is
to attain membership in a great collegiate fra-
ternity. To many, this dream means luxur>
of living, a sense of superiority, a good time
among "brothers," and a shining pin to show
the home folks.
A fraternity or sorority should mean much
more. It should mean closer com.panionship
with other men or women with similar ideals
who are pledged to raise the moral, educa-
tional, and social standards of the group.
In a few weeks, many of you will have the
opportunity to join one of these lodges. The
opportunities for you to benefit from thes«»
affiliations are numerous, but please keep in
That your decision will probably have more
effect on your future life than any you have
ever made in the past.
That you are not an outcast if you do not
receive the bid you wish, or any bid — you may
be too intelligent instead of too backward to
interest that particular organization.
That many of the potentially fine men have
been completely buried in their fraternities.
That men in other fraternities may be worth
cultivating or keeping as intimate friends.
Some of your best friends in the Freshman
Class will not be in your fraternity. Do not
That you are entitled to know the financial
set-up of any fraternity that rushes you.
That it is neither any credit to you nor to
a fraternity to obligate youi-self before the
official pledge day.
And that your success or failure does not
rely on whether you make a fraternity or not,
but on the initiative and perseverence you
show in either situation. Some men are ac-
tually made by fraternal affiliation ; others
submerged or ruined. Choose your course care-
fully, remembering that after pledge day your
battle to prove your real worth is only start-

The following motion was made and passed
"Because it seems that formal notification
of the action regarding fraternity and sorority
pledging and initiation was not given to fra-

year, and in the meantime will consider any
joint recommendation from the Student Affairs
Committee, the Interfraternity Council, and
the Panhellenic Council, submitted on or be-
fore January 1, 1934.
"The Senate hereby directs that a copy of
this action be sent by the Secretai-y to all
fraternities and sororities, both national and
local, to be posted on their bulletin boards ;
that it be posted on the bulletin boards of the
University, and published in the Diamond-
* The regulation above referred to reads as
follows: "There shall be no definite rushing
season and students may be pledged at any
time; but no student shall be initiated until he
or she shall have passed one full semester's
work without condition or failure."

The Rossbourg Club, founded in 1891, is
Maryland's oldest and most prominent social
organization. Its primary function is to give
a number of informal dances, free to members.
During the past few years it has shown very
rapid growth, due principally to the fact that
it has given the most successful dances Mary-
land has ever known. Membership in the
Rossbourg Club last year totalled over two
hundred and promises to be even larger this

INTERCOLLEGIATE SPORTS AT THE
UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND
The University of Maryland's position in in-
tercollegiate athletics is unique. It has a
reputation for clean athletics, yet has good
teams. It has met opponents from the Mis-
sissippi to the Atlantic and from Harvard to
the University of Florida, yet has no "break"
or quarrel with any other institution. It is
on good terms with all. To win is not the
chief aim, but to develop men. It is the pol-
icy of the University to stress the educational
values in its sports.
Yet, notwithstanding this attitude, which
precludes the possibility of overemphasis of
its sports, the University has had some notable
achievements in the various fields of competi-
tion. For instance, in the last few years, in
football, it has defeated Yale twice, defeated
Syracuse, Pennsylvania, Navy, Washington
and Lee, Virginia, V. P. I. and V. M. I.,
North Carolina and others of its opponents.
In baseball it has won victories at one time
or another over practically every other big
school in the East and South. Its basketball
team has not only defeated Pennsylvania,
Princeton, Lafayette, Navy, and others, but
two years ago won the Southern Conference
The lacrosse team has been consistently
among the two or three strongest in the
United States. In boxing, track athletics, and
rifle shooting it also has enjoyed its share of
success. In track, for instance, the mile relay
team in one season defeated Harvard, Yale.
Pennsylvania, Dartmouth, Columbia, Penn
State and several other schools.
Maryland always plays difficult schedules in
all sports, and boys who enter the University
are assured of the opportunity to try for teams
which will be in competition with the highest
type of opponents.
This coming fall, the football team not only
meets Virginia and many of the larger schools
in this immediate section, but also takes trips
to New Orleans to play Tulane University and
to Florida to play the University of Florida.
In basketball the University of Michigan
and the University of Indiana are to be
played at College Park, while other games
will be with North Carolina, Virginia, Wash-
ington and Lee, Navy and other schools of the
type of these.
The boxing team has matches listed, among
others, with Penn State, Rutgers, Washington
and Lee, V. M. I. and Duke University. It is
also scheduled to make a trip to West Point
to meet the Army.
The lacrosse team, besides its annual games
with Navy and Hopkins, will play Dartmouth
and Yale, both being scheduled at College
The baseball team will have among its op-
ponents Penn State, Cornell, Virginia, North
Carolina and practically all of the other
schools in this section that maintain teams in
A dual meet with Navy and' the Southern
Conference Championships will be features of
the track schedule.
In addition to its general program, the Uni-
versity schedules in the spring a Field Day to
which it invites all of the high schools and
prep schools in the State and the surrounding
States to send athletes. About 500 high school
athletes took part in this field day meet last
spring. Next year the University teams, in
the Spring Field Day program, will meet Penn
State in lacrosse. West Virginia in baseball,
and Hopkins in tennis, with its opponent in
track yet to be determined.
Something of the opportunities for partici-
pation in intercollegiate athletics at the Uni-
versity of Maryland is shown in the fact that
last year approximately 300 students were
members of the various squads.

Through the execution of the various de-
tails outlined by C. LeRoy Mackert, the Intra-
mural Department has attained prodigious suc-
cess. The ultimate aim is to reach out into
the groups of students who are unable to par-
ticipate in the intercollegiate sports. This sys-
tem affords more students the opportunity of
playing the games they like without being
"out of their class," so to speak. The Intra-
mural Sports Athletic Committee is organized
much upon the lines of the Athletic Board,
with the intention of building up the Varsity
teams from the leaders and winners of the
Among the sports offered are boxing, touch
football, soccer, tennis, quoits, horseshoes,
handball, ping-pong, fall and spring track, vol-
ley ball and baseball.
Managers of each sport are selected from
the students of Physical Eklucation. At the
end of the year a banquet is given for these
managers by the department, upon which occa-
sion awards are made to those who have con-
tributed their services.

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
Installation of the new point system and the
new method of management of the various^
sports mark the outstanding achievements of
the Women's Athletic Association during the
Under the new point system a coed must be
an active member of the Women's Athletic
Association to be eligible to receive any award.
The only award which a freshman can obtain
is her numerals, for which she must have
thirty-five points. After her freshman year,
any member earning fifty points may receive
her letter. A letter winner earning fifty addi-
tional points may get a blazer. Such a coed,
making another fifty points, is awarded a
small "M" by the "M" Club. Before either of
the last two awards are given, the candidate
must be passed upon by the members of the
"M" Club and the Executive Council of the
Women's Athletic Association.
Hockey, basketball, volleyball, baseball, and
soccer are the major sports. Two extra points
are earned by each member of a winning team.
For each sport, two representatives are
chosen from each sorority house and two from
each dormitory to take both technical and
practical examinations. The coed receiving
the highest mark becomes manager with the
runner-up as her assistant. One woman can
be manager or assistant manager of only two
sports. For both positions ten points are given.
An extra five points is given if the coed par-
ticipates in the sport.
Officers of the Association this year are
Elizabeth Leffel, president ; Kathleen Hanni-
gan, vice-president ; June Barnsley, secretai-y ;
Felice Jacobs, recorder of points.

SONGS AND YELLS
(Maryland! My Maryland!)
Thy sons and daughters throng thy door,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
Maryland ! oh Maryland !
Their hearts and hopes they bring to thee.
And place them in thy custody.
Proud hearts that pledge their love for thee :
They come from mountain, farm and shore
Maryland University !
Go forth, brave youth, throughout the state:
Maryland ! My Maryland !
And by your actions, show her great:
Maryland ! Our Maryland !
Thy Alma Mater's name and fame.
Oh keep alive her holy flame.
Until all hearts as one exclaim,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
Cheer, three times cheer, and one cheer more
For Maryland ! Dear Maryland !
Send forth that cry from hill to shore: —
Maryland University !
Fair Mother of our brightest dreams.
Blest giver of life's precious things.
To thee each heart its service brings : —
Maryland ! My Maryland !
The despot's heel is on thy shore,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
His torch is at thy temple door,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
Avenge the patriotic gore.
That flecked the streets of Baltimore,
And be the battle queen of yore,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
Thou wilt not cower in the dust,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
Thy gleaming sword shall never rust,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
Remember Carroll's sacred trust.
Remember Howard's war-like thrust,
And all the slumb'rers with the just,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
In the very heart of Maryland,
In the heart of every Maryland man,
There's a spirit so endearing
It will win your heart and hand.
For she doth hold sway.
She will win the day.
And her glorious men will ever win the fray.
Then it's Hurrah ! Hurrah ! for Maryland.
Then's it Hurrah! Hurrah for U. of M.
With her banners ever streaming high.
She will always win or die.
Never forget the glories of the past,
Carry on triumphant to the last.
For we love, we love Old Maryland,
Hurrah ! Hurrah ! Hurrah !
U. of M.
(Tune, Caisson Song)
U, of M., U. of M.,
Keep the ball away fi-om them,
Keep that pigskin a-rolling along !
Up the field, down the field.
Not an inch of ground we'll yield.
Keep that pigskin a-rolling along !
Then it's Whiff! Wham! Whack!
Hear that Maryland quarterback
