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.

DEDICATION 

In recognition of his unceasing efforts 
in successfully reviving dramatics at the 
University, and raising the standard of 
play production to a height seldom at- 
tained on the collegiate stage, we, the 
staff, dedicate this, the 1936-1937 "M" 
book to 

DR. CHARLES B. HALE 

whose counsel and guidance to freshmen 
has made him indispensable to the Uni- 
versity of Maryland.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 

Dear Marylanders : 

Old students know, without need of wel- 
coming words, that we are glad to see them 
back. On them we depend, in great part, to 
convey our real greeting to the newcomers 
among us. Freshmen have yet to learn that 
the University of Maryland is going to be a 
real home to them, and old students play 
perhaps the largest part in making this home 
a home of wide opportunities, socially, in- 
tellectually, morally, physically, and spirit- 
ually. 

To the newcomers to the campus we tell 
you that we shall share with you all that 
we have. 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, aided by the 
advice which will be yours for the asking, 
should enable you to meet successfully any 
problem that you are likely to encounter. We 
shall be glad to lend a helping hand. 

Personally, my office door is open to you 
always. 

Sincerely, 

H. C. BYRD, President.

"M" BOOK GREETINGS FOR 1936-1937 

A hearty welcome to all students at the 
University for the year 1936-1937, whether 
you be old ones returning or new ones enter- 
ing our doors for the first time. 

We hope the years spent on our campus 
will be worthwhile in every way. Not every- 
one is able to come to college and those of 
you who are fortunate enough to have a col- 
lege education should be deeply appreciative. 

All work and no play makes Jill a dull 
girl ! and in order to get the most out of 
your college career you should take part in 
some extra-curricular activities. However, this 
does not mean to take part in too many, but 
to choose wisely among the many offered you. 
If you actively participate in two you will 
derive more benefit than if you join so many 
that you can only passively participate. 

I am sure your college days will be happy 
ones and ones that will be firmly imprinted on 
your memory. Live them to the utmost ! 

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- 
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- 
cultural College. 

The College of Medicine of Maryland was 
first located at Lombard and Greene Streeta, 
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. 

25 



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 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.

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.

INFIRMARY RULES 



RULES GOVERNING MEDICAL EXCUSES 

1. Students living in the dormitories, who 
are ill and unable to attend classes, must re- 
port to the INFIRMARY, between 8.00 and 
9.00 A.M. If they are too ill to go to fche 
Infirmary, they must notify the MATRON be- 
fore 8.30 A.M., so the Doctor can be called to 
the dormitory. If a student is taken sick at 
any other time he must report to the INFIRM- 
ARY, before going to his room. 

2. Medical excuses for classes missed during 
illness will be issued by the Infirmary physi- 
cian or nurses, only when this procedure is 
followed. 

1. Office hours every day between 8.00 and 
9.00 A.M., except on Sundays. Evening office 
hours at 6.00 P.M. except Saturdays and Sun- 
days. Office hours on Sundays by appointment 
only. 

2. A registered nurse is on duty at all hours 
at the infirmary. Between 2.00 and 4.00 P.M., 
quiet hour is observed. During this time stu- 
dents are requested not to report, except in 
case of an emergency. 

3. Visiting hours are between 4.00 and 5.0u 
P.M. and 7.00 and 8.00 P.M. daily. No visitor 
may see any patient until permission is first 
granted by the nurse. 



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 dischaige 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- 
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 
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. Con- 
tinued violation may mean suspension from 
the University. 

The responsibility for parked automobiles 
rests with the car owner. For further informa- 
tion inquire at the Office of the Superintend- 
ent of Buildings and Grounds, Room 18, base- 
ment of Agriculture Building. 



To the students of the University 
of Maryland 

Prince George's Bank 
8C Trust Co. 

OF HYATTSVILLE 

T. Howard Duckett, President 

Extends to you greetings and a 
welcome and invites you to make

vagance and disputes. 

The facilities of this bank are at 
your command.

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, which 
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- 

33 



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 undei-graduate 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 

49 



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 Faculty 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 expendituie tf) 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 sot of books, which serves 
as a check upon the Central Office. The bills 
are voncherrd, and the accounls 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 
the Footlight Club, and the Rossburg Club.

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS 

Three student-edited and student-written 
publications — The Diamondbaclv. weekly news- 
paper ; The Terrapin, year-book, 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- 
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. 

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 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 
tnonthly hasig.- 

61 



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 
published every Monday during the school 
year ; year's subscription to the "Old Line," 
bi-monthly, 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 1936-37 are: 

THE DIAMONDBACK 

Editoi--in-Chief Carlisle H. Humelsine 

A ■ . T-^T. (Robert E. Baker 

Associate Editors {christine Kempton 

Women's Editor Janet Weidemann 

Business Manager Dale Patterson

Art Editor _ John Bell 

Women's Editor Helen Somers 

Business Manager Parks Patterson 

THE TERRAPIN 

Editor-in-Chief Paul Wise

Business Manager Jameson McWilliams 

All of these publications welcome tryouts for 
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 T lub. principal organi- 
zation of campus thespians, has produced a 
number of truly noteworthy plays during the 
past six years. 

62 



Under the tutelage of Dr. Charles B. Hale, 
talented coach, the Footlighters have staged 
successfully an average of two full length 
plays a year and a number of one-act per- 
formances and comedy skits. The combined 
talents of both players and Dr. Hale have re- 
sulted in productions that have attracted much 
favorable comment from local and national 
critics. 

During the past season, the Footlight Club 
presented three dramas in carrying on the 
fame of the group. These were "The Tav- 
ern," "Oliver Oliver," and "Journey's End." 
It was in appreciation of these and other 
presentations of equal merit that this current 
issue of the "M" Book was dedicated. 



GLEE CLUB AND OPERA CLUB 

Since the revival of the Opera Club last 
year, the Glee Club and Opera Club have 
worked hand in hand producing programs 
which have elicited praise both locally and 
nationally. The Opera Club produced an opera 
this past year, "Sweethearts." Under the 
direction of Harlan Randall, musical director 
of the University, the two groups had a very 
successful year. The Glee Club, combined with 
a women's choi'us, gave many programs both 
on the campus and in Washington. They also 
took part in the All-University Night program. 



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. 

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

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 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 



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- 
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 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.

Fraternities 

and 

Organizations 

Section IV. 

"M" 






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 m:ide 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 •^s 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 perseverencc you 
show in either situation. Some men arc ac- 
tually made by fraternal affiliation; others 
submerged or ruined. Choose your course care- 
fully, remembering thai after pledge day your 
battle to prove your real worth is only starting:.

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 widely 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 winter comes the intramural 
scene is shifted indoors and basketball, boxing, 
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. 

115 



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.

Thy sons and daughters throng thy dooi-, 

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 ! 



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. 



Chorus 

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.. U. of M., 

Keep the ball away from 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 

Shout out his signals loud and strong ! 

Where'er you go, you will always know 

That the pigskin is rolling along, 

(Shouted) Maryland! Maryland! 
Keep that pigskin a-rolling along !

Upon you all vict'ries stand.

As to see our men victorious ;

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,
