FOREWORD 

This book is merely a collection of diversi- 
fied facts which are to be found in a number 
of different places, and are collected together 
in this small volume in order to help you to 
become better acquainted with the history 
traditions, and general life of the University 
of which you are to become a part. 

We, the editors of the "M" book of the 
University, hope that the material that we 
have gathered may in some small way help 
you to acquire a better understanding of your 
new life here. 

Of advice, you will find little, but what we 
do give we feel should be properly heeded in 
order that you may benefit by the mistakes 
that we who have gone before you have made. 

You are now on your own, make the most 
of it, and in any difficulty that you may find 
yourself, the editors of this book stand ready 
to help you. 

Make the most of these next four years, and 
beware of the most common malady of young 
collegians, Procrastination.

MESSAGE FOR THE "M" BOOK 

Dear Marylanders : 

Old students know, without need of welcom- 
ing words, that we are glad to see them back. 
On them we depend, in great part, to convey 
our real greeting to the newcomei-s among us. 
Freshmen have yet to learn that the Univer- 
sity of Maryland is going to be home to them, 
and it is the duty of the old students to help 
make the University a home of wide oppor- 
tunities, socially, intellectually, morally, and 
physically. 

To the newcomers to the campus, we tell 
you that we shall share our opportunities with 
you. We want to help you, and you have only 
to let us know when help is needed. 

You will have some adjustments to make, 
but will find them much more easy than you 
expect. Your own good judgment, eventually, 
should see you through any problem you are 
likely to encounter. Talk things over with any 
of us. We are all glad to lend a helping 
hand. 

Personally, my office door is open to you 
always. 

Sincerely yours, 

H. C. BYRD, 
Acting-President.

Greetings to Mew and Old Students: 

Whether you have four years or only one 
remaining in your college career, make this 
one count ! May I urge the new students to 
take part in extra-curricular activities but 
may I also warn you to choose them wisely 
and not enter into too many things. Make 
your college life a well-rounded one because 
in that way do you best prepare yourself for 
a well-rounded and purposeful life. 

May this year be filled with pleasant 
memories and may it contribute much to the 
preparation for your future career. 

Sincerely yours, 

ADELE H. STAMP, 

Dean of Women.

HISTORY 

Perhaps the host and mosl graphic illustra- 
Uon of the remarkable progress the University 
of Maryland has made since its foiinding 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, w^ith 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 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 oi 
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. 

19 



In 1856 was established the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College, which later became the Land 
Grant College of Maryland. It was conducted 
foi' 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 have just 
been completed. 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 
recently completed, a new law building 
opened two years ago, and a new dentistry and 
pharmacy building but recently put into use. 
Enrollment in the Baltimore branch of the 
University averages about 1,600. 



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 

20 



which in any way represents the Univei'sity 
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 
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 
Council. The Council is composed of the 
student pastors, 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. 

21 



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 
STOPPED 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 arc 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- 
nasium and Silvester Hall. Parking area 
at Gymnasium, except spaces marked, 
"Reserved". 

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

24 



regulations, which are essential for mainte- 
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. 
CONTINUED VIOLATION MAY MEAN SUS- 
PENSION FROM THE UNIVERSITY. 

The RESPONSIBILITY FOR PARKED 
AUTOMOBILES RESTS WITH THE CAR 
OWNER. For further information inquire at 
the Office of the Superintendent of Buildings 
and Grounds, Room 18, basement of Agricul- 
ture Building.

LOUIS A. ENNIS 



GREETINGS TO THE INCOMING 
FRESHMEN 

On behalf of the student body of this, your 
University, I extend to you a most cordial 
welcome. I am sure that in a very short time 
you will feel entirely at home here with us. 

On entering college this fall, you are taking 
a very important step which is a vital factor 
in your career. Your one responsibility toward 
your own future is to make the most of the 
present. Here there is an opportunity to do 
just that. 

A great deal of the success of these next 
four years for you depends on your start. 
Pursue a policy of give and take with your 
professors and fellow students, be friendly on 
the campus and have confidence in your ability 
to carry out your tasks. If you tackle all 
your problems, whether they are scholastic, 
social, athletic, or personal, with a will to do, 
you then will succeed. 

My services are yours in any of your en- 
deavors. 

Sincerely, 

LOUIS A. ENNIS, 

President of S. G. A. 



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 viromen'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 
thus more adequately facilitate legislation and 
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- 



30 



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 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 
Terrapin. In 1931 the Student Band, and the 

46 



Footlight Club were added to this group, and 
each student receives in return tickets to two 
performances of the Footlight Club. Debate 
was added in 1933, and further subsidized in 
1934. A combined Glee Club was also added 
in 1934. 

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 Facility Adviser, and the Assistant of 
Student Activities. At the beginning of each 
school year, each organization submits a 
budget for approval, and then writes an 
Older for each txpenditure 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, and the Rossbourg Club.

ASSISTANT IN STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

Hoping to assist the various campus organi- 
zations in coordinating their efforts and to 
aid in the continuity of their work from year 
to year, the Administration in 1933 created 
the office of Assistant in Student Activities. 
Ralph I. Williams, who had just graduated 
the previous June, and who during his senior 
year was President of the Student Government 
Association, was selected to take charge of 
this new activity. 

Under Williams' tutelage, 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 was assumed last fall 
when Williams began the task of aiding stu- 
dents to find employment, other than in the 
University's Departments. 



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 

50 



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

Offices of Louis Ennis, 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 
has been formed under the title of the Com- 
mittee on Student Life. This committee, which 
is composed of fifteen members of the fac- 
ulty and Staff of the University, will func- 
tion 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, 

51 



Charles E. White, LeRoy Mackert, Dr. Charles 
B. Hale, Ray W. Carpenter. Harold F. Cotter- 
man, William H. Hottel, George F. Pollock, 
Mrs. Claribel Welsh, Dr. Susan E. Harman, 
Miss Helen Wilcox, Dr. Yates, Mr. Phillips,

CONCERNING EXTRA-CURRICULAR 
ACTIVITIES 

No better advice can be given the freshman 
than to tell him to get into some extra-cur- 
ricular activity just as soon as possible after 
he enters. The academic side of college life, 
while it most certainly should not be slighted, 
is not all of college ; and to get the utmost 
benefit from the four years here at Maryland, 
the freshman should select his activity now 
and get to work on it at once. 

Athletics, publications, dramatics, debating — 
to mention only a few — in all of these fields 
there is ample room for those who are willing 
to work. Special aptitude, though by no 
means a drawback, is not an absolute neces- 
sity. Beginners who are willing to devote the 
time and energy will find plenty of people 
ready to aid and teach them. 

There are in school today many people who 
are kicking themselves because they did not 
take the trouble to go out for some activity 
in their freshman year. Athletes who found 
themselves too late, potential editors who lost 
out because they were too busy with society 
their first year — and many in other lines 
afford excellent examples of what will happen 
to those who "put off" entering into some 
extra-curricular activity. 

So select your field now — and you will find 
it better in the end if you devote yourself 
solely to one — go out for it prepared and 
willing to work hard. And four years from 
now, campus leaders instead of nobodies, you 
will have no cause to regret the few extra 
hours of work during your first year.

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS 

Three student-edited and student-written 
publications — The Diamondback, weekly news- 
paper ; The Terrapin, year-book, and The Old 
Liine, 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- 
tors chosen, except in unusual circumstances, 
from members of the latter group. These edi- 
toi-s 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. 

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 Terrapin is published 
in June and contains a complete record of the 
University work for the year, together with 
summaries of spring sports result* — 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. 

55 



Each underyraduatf at. Maryland is required 
to pay a blanket sum of $10.00 on the day of 
rcKistration. This provides for a year's sub- 
scription to the "Diamondback," the weekly 
published every Monday durinj? the school 
year ; year's subscription to the "Old Line," 
bi-monlhly, published six times during the 
school year, and the "Terrapin," annual, which 
is issued about June 1st. 

Major officers of the publications for the 
year 1934-35 are: 

The Diamondback 

Editor-in-Chief Richard M. Hunt 

Managing Editor Carlisle H. Humelsine 

Women's Editor Ruth Wellington 

Feature Editor Christine Kempton 

Business Manager Thomas Robertson 

Circulation Manager James Dayton 

The Old Line 

Editor-in-Chief Gardner Brooks 

Managing Editor Robert Litschert 

Women's Editor Routh Hickey 

Art Editor John Bell 

Feature Editor Pyke Johnson 

Business Manager Theodore H. Erbe 

The Terrapin 

Editor-in-Chief John Hebb 

Women's Editor Ruth Kreiter 

Business Manager Walter Lohr 

All of these publications welcome tryouts fnr 
their respective staffs. Any student wishing 
to affiliate with one of them should consult 
some member of the staff which he or she 
wishes to join. 



DRAMATICS 

Hampered somewhat by mediocre staging 
facilities, the Footlight (^"lub, principal organi- 
zation of campus thespians, has produced a 

56 



number of truly noteworthy plays during the 
past six 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," "Death Takes 
A Holiday," "Monsieur Beaucaire," and "Berk- 
ley Square." 

This past year the Club presented a third 
three-act play sponsored by themselves which 
proved very successful. It is hoped that ir. 
the near future the organization may be 
further subsidized in order that more dra- 
matic talent may be properly trained to carry 
on the work of the Footlight Club. 



GLEE CLUB 

The Glee Club was organized last year to 
take the place of the Opera Club recently dis- 
banded. The organization consists of a men's 
glee club and a women's chorus under the 
direction of Harlan Randall, director of music 
of the University. They had a very successful 
year with concerts from the stage of the Fox 
Theater, in Washington, and local radio ap- 
pearances. They also took part in All-Univer- 
sity Night, in addition to which numerous 
local recitals were given. 



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 standnoint. 

Two years ago "The Calvert Debate Club" 
was formed to better centralize the preparation 
and presentation of the debates on the regular 
schedule, and to discuss current topics of the 
day. Try-outs are held tw^ice a year, during 
57 



the first month of each semester ; all members 
of debate teams aie selected from this club. 
ProfesKor 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 make several trips to colleges 
throughout the south and north. 



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 
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 Services, 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 

58 



close co-operation wilh 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 inchide 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- 
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.

THE ROSSBOURG CLUB 

The Rossbourg Club, founded in 1891, is 
Maryland's oldest and most prominent social 
organization. Its primary fvinction 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. 



MARYLAND MANNERS OR THE MARY- 
LAND STANDARD 

"Manners" and "etiquette" are words which 
are misused so much that many people, espe- 
cially college people, look rather scornfully 
on any attempt at social improvement or to 
"get etiquette." 

As a matter of fact, it is just as important 
to learn how to live properly, as to learn how 
to think properly. Many times, the man who 
is prepared mentally does not succeed, because 
he has no idea of how to live with his fellow 
man, both in business and in social relations. 
The brusque, non-social man who does suc- 
ceed does so to the displeasure of others and 
lack of satisfaction to himself. 

The University of Maryland graduate, above 
all, should be a perfect lady or gentleman from 
the practical standpoint. It is difficult to 
offer any training in this useful art in a uni- 
versity where the student is left on his own 
for such development. 

As an aid to those desiring to raise the 
general standard of manners and to keep 
posted personally, the Women's League expects 
to publish a semi-humorous booklet on MARY- 
LAND MANNERS which, it is hoped, will be 
taken seriously and with good results. 

A college education is not worth the imme- 
diate value in dollars and cents today, as in 
1929. But the so-called culture and college 
background which some attain at college is 
worth more than ever before, and will mean 
the difference between the successful college 
graduate and the "also ran."

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 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 the By-Laws of the 
Student Government Association Constitution. 
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 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 as a joint gift of 
the Class of 1933 and the Student Government 
Association. 

61 



WOMEN'S TRADITIONS 

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 upperc^assman 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 
sisters" are assigned by the Y.W.C.A. Cabinet. 

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. Alpha 
Lambda Delta initiation takes place shortly 
after first semester marks are released. 

Women who excel in scholarship, leadership, 
citizenship, and Christian character are eligi- 
ble for Mortar Board, national women's senior 
honor society, in their senior year. Our chap- 
ter of Mortar Board was founded at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland in 1934. 

"Rabbit rules" are supposed to be abolished 
but there are certain rules made by the vigi- 
lance committee of the sophomore class which 
freshmen must obey. It is the custom during 
this period to obey the "hello" tradition, the 
habit of speaking cheerfully and respectfully 
to upperclassmen and visitors on the campus. 

The Women's League is the governing body 
of the women. The officers of this body must 
be resident students. They are elected by the 
entire coed group. There are representatives 
to the League from each of the sorority houses, 
from the dormitories, and from the day stu- 
dents. It is the function of this body to make 
all rules governing women and to campus 
girls.

ADVICE TO FRESHMEN 

Probably the best advice that we can give to 
you as members of the Class of '39 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- 
versity. 

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

Do not forget that you are a Marylandcr 
now. Your high school records or 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 
logether and in introducing you to the student 
body. 

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- 
trous. 

Attend all meetings of your class. 

Be sure to speak to everyone you meet on 
the campus. Do your share in maintaining 
this tradition. 

Do not crib. Even if you are lucky enough 
not to be expelled from school, the value of 
your education immediately ceases.

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 luxury 
of living, a sense of superiority, a good tim^ 
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 oppor- 
tunities for you to benefit from these affiliations 
are numerous, but please keep in mind: 

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.

INTERCOLLEGIATE SPORTS AT THE 
UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

The University of Maryland's position in in- 
tercollegiate athletics is unique. It has a repu- 
tation for clean athletics, yet has good teams, 
It has met opponents from the Mississippi to the 
Atlantic and from Harvard to Florida, yet has 
had no "break" or quarrel with any institution. 
It is on good terms with all. To win is not the 
chief aim, but to develop men. It is the policy 
of the University to stress the educational 
values in its sports. 

Athletic facilities at Maryland are unexcelled 
by any other similar school in this section. The 
Ritchie Coliseum, built in 1932, and seating 
over 5,000 spectators, provides an ideal center 
for intercollegiate contests in basketball and 
boxing. Adjacent to the Coliseum is Byrd 
Stadium, where football, lacrosse and track 
events are held. In addition to these recrea- 
tional centers there are two baseball diamonds, 
two lacrosse fields and a number of well-kept 
tennis courts. The Ritchie Gymnasium con- 
tains the headquarters of the intramural direc- 
tors and the school of physical education. 

In addition to the University's general ath- 
letic program there are three events of par- 
ticular importance. These are Homecoming, 
All-University Night, and the Spring Field Day. 
The first of these is held in the fall of the year 
on the day of an outstanding football game and 
is in the nature of an alumni reunion. Dances, 
pep rallies, receptions, and other festivities 
serve to make it an outstanding event of tne 
year. 

All-University Night is held during the win- 
ter sports season. On this program an attempt 
is made to portray as many phases of student 
activity as possible. Basketball and boxing fea- 
ture the program which includes singing, danc- 
ing, dramatics, gymnastics and other extra-cur- 

117 



ricular pursuits. First held in the winter of 
1934 All-University Night has quickly become 
established as an annual affair. 

Early in May the annual Spring Field Day 
is held. To this event the University invites 
all of the high schools and prep schools of 
the State and surrounding territory to send 
athletes to compete against each other in track 
and field events. Last year over 500 athletes 
took part in the meet. On the same day var- 
sity teams representing the University in base- 
ball, lacrosse, tennis and track meet opponents 
from outstanding neighboring colleges.

VARSITY FOOTBALL 

(Coach, J. E, Faber) 
Although the 1934 edition of Maryland's foot- 
ball squad was composed largely of sophomores, 

118 



nevertheless, the Old Line gridmen chalked up 
a successful season despite the difficult schedule 
played. 

With practically all of last year's players re- 
turning, an even more successful eleven is ex- 
pected to represent the Black and Gold in the 
coming campaign.

ful season last spring, winning sixteen games 

out of twenty-three with victories over Har- 
vard, Cornell, Michigan, Duke, Georgetown and 

many leading schools of this section. With 

many of the old men returning the Old Line

VARSITY TRACK 

((Doach, Geary Eppley) 

A second place in the Southern Conference 
meet, an outstanding performance at the Penn 
Relays, and five victories in six dual meets 
were among the accomplishments of Mary- 
land's 1935 track team. Particularly note- 
worthy was the victory of the relay team 
at the Penn Relays. In competition wltn 
schools of nation-wide prominence the Old 
Liners led the field home to win the national 
championship in both the sprint medley relay 
and the mile class relay. 

Although losing several outstanding men of 
last year's squad, replacements from the fresh- 
man team and the further development of ex- 
isting talent will make Maryland's cinderpath 
men a powerful group for the coming year.

VARSITY LACROSSE 

(Coach, J. E. Faber) 

One of the leaders in lacrosse for many 
years, Maryland has consistently produced 
championship teams in this sport. Last year 
the Black and Gold stickmen were victorious 
over all but two of their opponents and these 
two defeats were by one-point margins. 

Since last year's squad was composed largely 
of juniors and sophomores, Maryland's 1936 
squad should equal or surpass last season's 
record.

INTRAMURAL SPORTS 

Under the direction of Professor C. L. Mack- 
ert, Maryland's intramural sports program has 
expanded rapidly in the past several years. In 
order that a maximum number of students may 
participate in 'mural activities a w^idely di- 
versified schedule of sports is followed. 

In the fall of the year touch-football, soccer, 
tennis, and golf headline the list of activities 
pursued. When M^inter comes the intramural 
scene is shifted indoors and basketball, boxing. 



129 



wrestling, and volleyball occupy the center of 
attention. With the first signs of spring the 
baseball leagues, and tennis and golf tourna- 
ments get underway. The annual track meet 
held in the middle of May is an outstanding 
feature of the intramural program. Last year 
over 500 students participated. 

Besides the seasonal sports mentioned, year 
'round interest is maintained in horseshoes, 
ping-pong, swimming and fencing. 

As an added feature, extramural competitions 
are held several times each year between 
Maryland, Georgetown, and Catholic Univer- 
sity. 



WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 

According to the constitution of the Women's 
Athletic Association, only its members are 
eligible for athletic awards. A freshman can 
obtain her numerals when she has obtained 
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 her blazer. Such a co-ed. 
making another fifty points, is awarded a small 
gold jewelled "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. Membership on 
one of these teams counts ten points. Two 
extra points are given each member of the 
winning team. 

The minor sports are as follows : Archery, 
tennis, tennequoits, and ping-pong. Horseback 
riding is also included in this group, but has 
slightly different requirements. 

Exams for manager are given two weeks 
before the sport begins. One woman can be 
manager or assistant manager of only two 
sports.
