DR. RAYMOND A. PEARSON 



GREETINGS FROM PRESIDENT PEARSON 

Dear Friends : 

This letter is to extend greetings to new 
students and to say to old students "we are 
glad to see you back again." 

All students, old and new, know that things 
are far different these days than they were 
only a few years ago. You will agree with 
me and with the faculty that a university 
training ought to be a definite benefit to those 
who get it. We know that the world needs 
knowledge and understanding, sympathy, kind- 
ness, and helpfulness. Every one of these 
virtues should be strengthened by our mutual 
efforts in the year now beginning. I earnestly 
wish that every student, and every teacher too, 
would seriously consider from time to time 
how he or she is progressing in these desirable 
ways. 

My best advice to new students is to keep 
your work up to date. Do not let diversions 
enter when work needs to be done, except such 
as are necessary for needed relaxation and 
exercise. Most of the failures in college are 
due to the fact that work which should be 
done today is postponed until tomorrow, and 
then again until the next day. 

Some of the new students at times may be 
discouraged, perhaps homesick, but when this 
happens, remember the thousands who have 
preceded you and who have won against such 
discouragements. Have confidence in yourself. 
Select your friends with care and try to find 
those who will help you. Get acquainted with 
your teachers. Remember your religious train- 
ing. Let the local pastors be your friends. And 
remember that the undersigned and hundreds 
of others will be glad to give help if only we 
may know when and where it is needed. 

With best wishes for each one in this new 
college year, I am 

Very truly yours, 
R. A. PEARSON. President. 




DEAN ADELE STAMP

GREETINGS FROM THE DEAN OF WOMEN 

To old and new students, greetings and cordial 
welcome. 

You are beginning another year of your 
school life — make it count and get all that you 
can from it. In order to do this, give your 
best efforts in all that you undertake and do 
not undertake too much or too little. Enter 
into extra-curricular activities but do not try 
to join all. It is better to select a few and 
give your best to those than to choose many 
and give little. 

We hope every year you spend here will add 
to your ability to live a richer and fuller life, 
and that you will always retain most pleasant 
memories of your days on this campus. 

Sincerely yours, 

ADELE H. STAMP, 

Dean of Women.

HISTORY 

Perhaps the best and most graphic illustra- 
tion of the remarkable progress 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- 
veisity 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 Mai-yland Agri- 
cultural College. 

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 
of medicine. 

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 
world. 

15 



In 1856 was established the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College, which later became the Land 
Grant College of Maryland. It was conducted 
for a number 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 are now 
under construction. Enrollment since 1912 has 
jumped from 130 to 2,000. 

Increased facilities are likewise noted in Bal- 
timore, with a splendid new $1,500,000 hospital 
is nearing completion, a new law building 
opened 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 

ACTIVITIES 

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 Relations 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 

16 



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. 
Discipline 

In the government of the University, the 
Pi-esident 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 
Council, of which Dr. Pearson is chairman. 
The Council is composed of the student pas- 
toi-s, 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. Every student is given the oppor- 
tunity to worship on the campus, 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. 

17 



STUDENT PASTORS 

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.

PARKING REGULATIONS 

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 several 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 or 
STOPPEID on any of the campus roads except 
to take on or discharge passengers. Hanging 
on cars is not permitted. Fast driving and 
rounding curves at a speed greater than fifteen 
(15) miles per hour is prohibited. Blowing 
horns in front of buildings disturbs class ac- 
tivities and is prohibited at all times. Driving 
off campus roads on grass is positively for- 
bidden. Students must not park in Visitors' 
Spaces located near the Dining Hall and in 
front of the Agriculture Building. 

University Lane has been made a through 
traffic boulevard and parking parallel there- 
with has been discontinued. 

Spaces to be used by students for the park- 
ing of automobiles are : 

Women: Parking area north of University 
Lane and adjacent to the walk leading to 
Gerneaux Hall, except spaces 200 to 240 
inclusive and 272 to 310 inclusive. Men 
students are not permitted to park in this 
area. 

Men: Parking area near Calvert and Sil- 
vester Halls, except spaces 482 to 499 in- 
clusive. Parking area between the Gym-

"Reserved". 

Officers of the Maryland State Police have 
been detailed to assist in maintaining these 

20 



rcKuIatinns, which arc essential for maintc- 
n;ince of property, ronvcnieiice, and personal 
safety. ANY STUDENT WHO FAILS TO 
OBSERVE THESE RE(;ULATIONS, MAY BE 
DEPRIVED OF THE USE OF HIS CAR AND 
DRIVIN(; PRIVILEGES ON THE CAMPUS. 
CONTINUED VIOLATION MAY MEAN SUS- 
PENSION FROM THE UNIVERSITY. 

The RESPONSIBILITY FOR PARKED

GREETINGS TO THE INCOMING 
FRESHMEN 

On behalf of the student body of this, your 
University, let me extend to you a hearty wel- 
come. You are to be congratulated upon your 
decision to attend colleKe and we feel, especi- 
ally so, in your particular choice. 

Three months ago you were feted by your 
respective schools at Commencement Exercises. 
Today you have arrived at the threshold of the 
word commencement in its true sense. 

The University of Maryland is democratic in 
its social life, a teeming place of knowledge, 
and respected by other schools for its policy 
in athletics. It is your opportunity to profit 
by these individualistic traits, and your job to 
help continue this progress. 

The student body is looking towards you. 
They expect three things of you, the same 
three you expect of yourself: namely, friendly 
relationships with all, a spirited support of 
athletics and student affairs, and success 
scholastically. 

I want everyone of you to feel free to ask 
my help in any of your endeavors. 

Sincerely, 

WARREN E. TYDINGS, President. 

The 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 Government has as com- 
ponent parts, a men's unit and a women's 
unit, each to consider its respective problems 
and the Executive Council, composed of a cross 
section of student leaders. The Executive 
Council has final jurisdiction as far as the 
student governing is concerned. The Student 
Relations Committee, a faculty body appointed 
by the President of the University, w^hich 
acting for him approves all major actions and 
formations of student organizations. 

The Vice-President of the Student Govern- 
ment Association is Chairman of the Executive 
Council, which enables the President of the 
Association to act as a voting member and 
Ihus more adequately facilitate legislation am] 
maintain the Parliamentary procedure of the 
sessions. 

Meetings of these organizations are held 
twice each month or on special occasions at 
the direction of the President of the S. G. A. 
All meetings are closed to the public. 

All student activities under the Association 
are financed by one of the most complete sub- 
sidization plans in university or college circles 
in 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 

26 



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 charge, 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 
ORGANIZATIONS 

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 

28 



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 durinj? 
the previous year. A check, which eliminates 
a sreat deal of misunderstanding, is also 
maintained for the students upon the sale of 
tickets for such functions as those held by 
FootliKht Club, the Opera Club, and the Ross- 
bnurg Club.

ASSISTANT IN STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

Hoping to assist the various campus oisrani- 
zations in coordinating their efforts and to aid 
in the continuity of their work fronn year to 
year, the Administration last year created the 
office of Assistant in Student Activities. Ralph 
I. Williams, vi'ho had just graduated the previ- 
ous June, and who during his senior year was 
President of the Student Government Associa- 
tion, was selected to take charge of this new 
activity. 

Under Williams' tutlage, and through the 
splendid cooperation rendered by the student 
body, this new organization has proven to be 
an important cog in all activities of student 
affairs. Organizations now use this office as 
their central unit, and it is here that records 
are kept of all campus groups. Debate sched- 
ules as well as the disbursement of Debate 
funds are now arranged in this office. During 
the middle of the year the job of compiling a 
complete personnel file of the entire student 
body was successfully undertaken by, and will 
continue to be a regular task of this office. 

A new responsibility will be assumed th's 
fall when Williams will begin the task of add- 
ing students to find employment, other than 
in the University's Departments. 

The office of Student Activities is of, by, and 
for the students and it is Williams' hope that 
all students, particularly the Freshmen, will 
not hesitate to ask his aid in any of their 
difficulties. 



STUDENT CENTER 

The building occupied at present by the 
Maryland Christian Association and student 
publications is a forerunner of the Student 
Union Building which is to be erected before 
the University building program is many more 
years old. 

The east wing of the Center is occupied by 
student publications — The Diamondback, The 

46 



Reveille, and The Old Line. The entrance to 
these offices faces Calvert Hall 

Offices of Warren E. Tydinjfs, President of 
the Student Government Association ; and of 
Ralph Williams, Assistant in Student Activities, 
as well as that of the student pastors and Mary- 
land Christian Association, are located in the 
center of the building. Access to these rooms 
may be had through the entrance in the main 
wing, facing the Library. 

Reading and recreation rooms adjoin the 
offices and are available to all students. The 
current magazines and books on hand there 
will assist day students in whiling away a 
long lunch hour or a leisure moment. 

Freshmen, especially, are invited to utilize 
the facilities offered in the Student Center and 
to confer on their problems with Mr. Williams. 

COMMITTEE ON STUDENT LIFE 

A new advisory organization designed to 
assist and advise student leaders in the con- 
duct of the many undergraduate activities ha.s 
been formed by President Pearson under the 
title of the Committee on Student Life. This 
committee, which is composed of fourteen 
members of the faculty and Staff of the Uni- 
versity, will function as a guiding influence 
for the student body and endeavor to give to 
its leaders the benefits of mature reasoning. 

As Assistant in Student Activities, Ralph 
Williams, former President of the Student 
Government Association here, will carry out 
the policies suggested by the committee and 
bring them directly to the undergraduates, 
with whom he will be in constant contact. 

Members of the committee are as follows : 
Geary Eppley, chairman ; S. S. Steinberg, 
Charles E. White, LeRoy Mackert, Major Al- 
vaii C. Gillem, Dr. Charles B. Hale, Dr. Wal- 
ter H. E. Jaeger, Ray W. Carpenter, Harold 
F. Cotterman, William H. Hottel, George F. 
Pollock, Mrs. ("laribel Welsh, Dr. Susan E.

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS 

Three student-edited and student-written 
publications — The Diamondback, weekly news- 
paper. The Reveille, yearbook, and The Old 
Line, bi-monthly comic magazine — are pro- 
duced by University of Maryland undergradu- 
ates as official organs of the Student Govern- 
ment Association. 

The staffs of each of these publications are 
composed of students from freshman, sopho- 
more, junior and senior classes, with the edi- 

49 



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 six times each year, with pros- 
pects bright for increasing the number of is- 
sues until the magazine is established on a 
monthly basis. 

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-

DRAMATICS 

Hampered somewhat by mediocre staging 
facilities, the Footlight ( lub, 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- 

51 



act plays. Among the most recent vehicles 
were "The Royal Family," "Holiday," "The 
Dover Road," "Outward Bound," "The Queen's 
Husband,"" "Monsieur Beaucarie," and "Berkley 
Square." The sole Shakespearean effort of the 
Club, "Midsummer Night's Dream," was pre- 
sented by request before the Shakespearean 
Society of Washington following a successful 
run on the campus. 



OPERA CLUB 

The Maryland Opera Club was founded in 
1924, and since then has been noted for its 
excellent annual presentations and for the 
capable work of its members. 

In 1934, instead of the customary Gilbert 
Sullivan operas, it produced "Erminie ; or the 
Two Thieves" by E. Jakobouski. This opera 
has a French provincial setting and was one 
of the most entertaining and comical ever 
presented by the club, as well as one of the 
most elaborate in so far as costumes, setting, 
and the merit of the players was concerned. 

This is the tenth comic opera to be success- 
fully presented by the Club. These presenta- 
tions have naturally entailed a great deal of 
effort, and they have only been possible be- 
cause of the cooperation of Professor B. Louis 
Goodyear, who has tirelessly and successfully 
coached the singers and the members of the 
Club. However, the club has always been en- 
thusiastic about its productions, which always 
have been a worthy tribute to its efforts. 



DEBATE 

The administration for a number of years 
has supported intercollegiate debating, recog- 
nizing this student activity as one of the most 
important activities from a cultural, educa- 
tional, and practical training standpoint. 

Last year "The Calvert Debate Club" was 
formed to better centralize the preparation 
and presentation of the debates on the regular 

52 



schfdulc. ;iri<I to discuss current t()j)ics oT the 
day. Try-outs are held twice a year, durinjr 
the first month of each semester; all memhers 
of debate teams are selected from this club. 
Professor C. S. Richardson, Head of the 
Public Speaking Department, is chairman of 
the faculty committee which works in cooper- 
ation with the club as an advisory body to it. 
Schedules are arranged through the Student 
Activities Office. Besides debates on the cam- 
pus and at nearby high schools, the men's and 
women's teams will make several trips to col- 
leges throughout the south and north. 

OPEN MEETINGS 

During the past spring The Democratic Club 
conducted a series of meetings which brought 
to the campus the outstanding men in Mary- 
land politics and arranged so the students could 
become ac(!uainted with several men prominent 
in the national affairs of our Country. 

One afternoon last April Secretary of Agri- 
culture Henry A. Wallace entertained thirty 
membeis of the Club in his office in Washing- 
ton. On the same evening the Honorable 
Bernard J. Flynn, United States District At- 
torney for Maryland addressed an open meet- 
ing of the Club. Other speakers who addressed 
the Club last season were: T. Barton Harring- 
ton, Speaker of the Maryland House of Dele- 
gates ; Sumner Welles, Assistant Secretary of 
State and Former Ambassador to Cuba ; Her- 
bert R. O'Conor, States' Attorney for Balti- 
more City ; Howard W. Jackson and Dr. 
Charles H. Conley, candidates for the Demo- 
cratic nomination for Governor ; H. Webster 
Smith, Harry W. Nice and Harry Phoebus, 
candidates for the Republican nomination for 
Governor ; and, Raymond A. Bailey, Chairman 
of the Young Independent Democrats of Mary- 
land. The meetings of the organization are 
open to the public and all students are invited 
to attend.

MARYLAND CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The Maryland Christian Association at the 
University of Maryland is a voluntary fellovi'- 
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 
needs. 

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 
to meet the 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 Sei*vices, Confer- 
ences, Fireside Forums, and Social Events. 
Membership 

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, and all are invited 
to participate in such phases of it as they 
desire. 

Student Control 

The plans and program are determined and 
promoted by the two Cabinets, with the ad- 
54 



vice and aid of the Advisory Board. Meetings 
are held moiilhly. 

In all of their work, the Cabinets and Coun- 
cil have the advice and help of the faculty 
and student pastors.

TRADITIONS 

With physical hazing definitely outlawed, the 
burden of maintaining the traditions of the 
University rests entirely with the Freshman 
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 heretofore been subjected by 
force. 

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 w^ith a list of the 
traditions which have been continued and 
which must be observed by all first-year stu- 
dents, will be found in the By-Laws of the 
Student Government Association Ckjnstitution . 
It is advisable that you familiarize yourself 
with the contents of this Article immediately. 

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 vanning 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- 
ernment Association. 

56 



WOMEN'S TRADITIONS 

Tt is llir wish of llic women of the Univer- 
sily of Maryland to help their incominc class- 
mates to become acclimated to collefre 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 "bip: sister," who is leady 
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 (he Junior Class. 

The Junior Class holds May Day each year 
in honor of the Senior Class, oiit of which 
they select by ballot the Queen of the May 
and her four maids. 

The Women's League of the Student Govern- 
ment Association serds each year a delegate 
to the national convention. 

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 
Athletic Association. 

57 



ADVICE TO FRESHMEN 

Probably the best advice that we can give to 
you as members of the Class of '38 is to 
tell you that it is up to you to find out what 
the University is Roing: to mean to you, and 
what part you, collectively and individually, are 
going to play in the development of the Uni- 
versity. 

However, the following suggestions may 
help you in your own orientation : 

Do not forget that you are a Marylander 
now. Your high school records or trophies 
will not build your reputation here. 

L«arn 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 t» the student 
body. 

Win the Freshman-Sophomore Contest; get 
your numerals on the Terrapin Memorial. 

Start to work on your studies as soon as 
(he 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- 
trous. 

Attend all meetings of your class. 

Be sure to speak to everyone you meet on 
the campus. The Class of '37 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. 

68 



CONCERNING FRATERNITIES 

The aim and dream of many a freshman is 
to attain membership in a great collegiate fra- 
ternity. To many, this dream means luxurj 
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 companionship 
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 will have the oppor- 
tunity to join one of these lodges. The opjjor- 
tunities for you to benefit from these affiliations 
are numerous, but please keep in miinl : 

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 
lose them. 

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 yourself 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 starting.

Senate Resolution Affecting: 
Fraternities, 1934-1935 

The following motion was made and passed 
unanimously : 

"Because it seems that formal notification 
of the action regarding fraternity and sorority 
pledging and initiation was not given to fra- 
ternities and sororities, the Senate will post- 
pone the operation of the new rules* for one 
yeai-, 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- 
back." 



* 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."

INTERCOLLECilATE SPORTS AT THE 
UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

The University of Maryland's position in in- 
tercollegiate athletics is unique. It has a 
loputation 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 
three years ago won the Southern Conference 
championship. 

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 last year won the Penn Relays. 

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. 

1)5 



This coming fall, the football team not only 
meets Georgetown and many of the larger 
schools in this immediate section, but also 
will take a trip to Bloomington, Ind., to play 
Indiana, and will meet Florida at Baltimore. 

In basketball, Ohio State and the University 
of Indiana are to be played at College Park, 
while other games will be played with North 
Carolina, Virginia, Duke, Navy and other 
schools of the type of these. 

The boxing team has matches listed, among 
others, with Penn State, Western Maryland, 
Washington and Lee, V. M. I. and Duke Uni- 
versity. It is also scheduled to make a trip 
to Charlottesville to meet Virginia. 

The lacrosse team, besides its annual games 
with Navy and Hopkins, will play Syracuse 
and Penn State, both being scheduled at Col- 
lege Park. 

The baseball team will have among its op- 
ponents Cornell, Virginia, Georgetown, Michi- 
gan and practically all of the other schools in 
this section that maintain teams in this sport. 

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 
teams from neighboring colleges in lacrosse, 
baseball and tennis. 

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.

INTRAMURAL ATHLETICS 

With Professor Charles Leroy Mackert as 
the director, the Physical Education Depart- 
ment at Maryland has revealed a real point 
of efficiency and is rapidly growing, and 
Mackert, who earned his B. A. and M. A. at 
this university, has completed work for his 
Ph. D. in Physical Education at Columbia 
University. 

Competition in intramurals is fostered in 
track, boxing, touch football, basketball, tennis, 
swimming, soccer, volley ball, ping pong, 
wrestling and horse shoe pitching, and ap- 
proximately 1000 students participated in the 
various activities during the 1933-34 term. 

The Old Liners also figured prominently in 
the Extramural Athletic Association League 
composed of colleges in the District of Colum- 
bia and Mai-yland, which Mackert was a prime 
mover in organizing and leading performers 
from eight institutions met in a number of its 
pastimes. 

Managers and aides in each sport are select- 
ed from among the students of physical educa- 
tion and a banquet is held in their honor at 
the close of the school year.

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 

The Women's Athletic Association have 
adopted a point system which was started last 
year. Under this new point system a coed 
must be an active member of the Women's 
Athletic Association to be eligible to receive 
any award. A freshman can obtain her 
numerals, when she has earned thirty-five 
points. After her freshman year, any member 
earning fifty points may receive her letter. 
A letter winner earning fifty additional 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, a 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. 

Exams for the managers are given two 
weeks before the sport begins. One women 
can be manager or assistant manager of only 
two sports. For both positions ten points are 
given. An extia five points is given if the 
coed participates in the sport. 

For the first time in the history of the Club 
has it sent a delegate to the Hockey camp. 
This is hoped to be carried on in the future. 

Officers of the Association this year are : 

President _ Evelyn Neal 

Secretary Jean Cowie 

Treasurer „ Routh Hickcy 



SPORTS AT MARYLAND

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;

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 : —

His torch is at thy temple door,

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 !

Shout out his signals loud and strong ! 

Where'er you go, you will always know

Let us deck her o'er with glory. 
With triumph and honor, hand in hand :

The college so dear to our hearts, 
We'll cheer for the teams which are all so great. 

Its praises ring, from State to State ; 
Along the well-worn trail of victory 

Maryland will follow on and on. 
And the colors in the lead. 

Will be Black and Gold, indeed. 
All Hail! to Our Maryland.
