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.

President of the University 



Dear Marylanders: 

It is always a pleasure to extend a word of 
greeting to new students who come to our 
Campus for the first time, and it is an equal 
pleasure to welcome back the old students. 

Members of the Faculty and the Administra- 
tive Staff of the University are anxious to 
help each one of you make the most of your 
stay on this Campus. Do not hesitate to call 
on any of us when you feel we can help you. 

To the new students we would especially 
emphasize the importance of early forming 
regular and systematic habits of study, so that 
each day's work may be cared for at the 
pi'oper time. 

University life is many sided, and a wide 
range of extra-curricular activities offer oppor- 
tunities for you to develop other than strictly 
intellectual phases of your personality. You 
will form friendships and associations wh ch 
should endure long beyond your college days 
and do much to enrich your lives. 

Let us all work together with sincere and 
purposeful cooperation to achieve the kind 
of success which makes us useful citizens and 
gives us satisfaction in our individual lives. 


H. C. BYRD, President. 


Dean of Women 



To All Freshmen Students: 

Greetings to all freshmen students and a 
hearty and cordial welcome. It is our earnest 
hope that you will enjoy your life spent on 
our campus whether you come to us as a day 
student or live in our dormitories. Maryland 
is noted for its friendliness and comradeship 
and so we want you to feel at home on our 
campus and to feel that you really belong here 
and not as a stranger coming into our gates. 

Take part in some of our extra-curricular 
activities but choose wisely and do not try 
to enter into all of them. It is better to be- 
long to two organizations and to contribute 
something to them and to get something out 
of them than to join half a dozen and give 
nothing and get nothing. Your work and play 
should be balanced ; not too much of either. 

May your freshman year be successful aca- 
demically and recreationally. and may it be 
filled with pleasant memories. 

Sincerely yours, 

ADELE H. STAMP. Dean of Women.

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- 
ve-sity 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 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 


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- 
timoie. 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. 

Plans were completed last spring for the Uni- 
versity's $1,170,000 Building Program, which 
provides for the addition of four new build- 
ings to the local campus and the remodeling 
and repairing of several others. Also included 
in the plans are a new men's dormitory, a 
general service building, a home economics 
building, and a new poultry building, at the 
College Park Branch. In addition, the in- 
firmary, engineering, men's dormitory group, 
and the dairy buildings will be improved under 
the remodeling division of the program. 

Two additional floors are planned for the 
new University Hospital at Baltimore ; Dental 
and Pharmacy Schools are to receive much 
needed improvement. 



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 duiing the week. The Baptist, 
Episcopalian, Presbyterian, and Lutheran stu- 
dents have denominational clubs which meet 
regularly during the year.

any other time he must report to the INFIRM- 
ARY, before going to his room.

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. 

Students must not park in space reserved for 
visitors located in front of the library. 

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 

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, 

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.

President of S. G. A. 



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 
Life Committee, a faculty body appointed 
by the President of the University, approves 
all major actions and formations of student 

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 

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 
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.

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 
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 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 vourhercd. and the a^counis 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.

Three student-edited and student-written 
publications — The Diamondback, weekly news- 
paper ; The Terrapin, year-book, and The Old 
L,ine, 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 eight times each year. 

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; years subscription to the "Old Line." 
bi-monthly, published eight times during the 
school year, and the "Terrapin," annual, which 
is issued about June 1st. 

Major officers of the publications for the 
year 1937-38 are: 


Editor-in-Chief Robert E. Baker 

Women's Editor Marty Heaps 

Associate Editors 

Eileen Kellerman, Helen Reindollar, 
Peggy Maslin, Jerome Hardy

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


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 seven years. 

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 

During the past season, the Footlight Club 
presented three dramas in carrying on the 
fame of the group. These were "No More 
Ladies," "The Last Warning," and "The 
Royal Family." 


Since its I'evival three years ago, the Opera 
Club, under the direction of Harlan Randall, 
musical director of the University, has pro- 
duced several successful operettas among 
which are Victor Herbert's "Sweethearts" 
and Rudolf Friml's "Vagabond King." It is 
the custom of the club to stage an operetta 
for the student body each spring. Encouraged 
by Mr. Randall, the club has made great 
progress this year and at the present time 
has a membership of eighty undergraduates. 


The Men's Glee Club and Women's Chorus 
hold an important position in campus activi- 
ties. Under the leadership of Harlan Randall, 
musical director of the Univei'sity, they have 
appeared separately and as a mixed chorus in 
many programs on the campus and around 
the state. With thirty voices in the Glee Club 
and forty in the chorus, the organizations have 
grown rapidly this past year. 



The administration for a number of years 
has supported intercollepriate debating, recog- 
nizinp: 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 presentation of the debaies on the regular 
schedule, and to discuss current topics of the 
day. Try-outs are held Iwice a year, during 
the first month of each semester; all members 
of debate teams are selected from this club. 

Professor C. S. Richardson, Head of the 
Public Speaking Deparlment, 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. 

Y. W. C. A. 

Beginning as the Women's Cabinet of the 
Maryland Christian Association, the Y. W. C. 
A. was organized at the University in 193(1. It 
was not until last year that it functioned as 
an independent unit. 

Officers and chairmen of the committees 
make up the cabinet which is the executive 
body of the association. Membership is open 
to women students interested in the work of 
the association. 

Projects of the club consists of assisting 
during orientation, entertaining freshman girls 
at teas, donating baskets to the poor at 

It also aids in S. G. A. relief drives and 
sponsor student-faculty teas, which were be- 
gun last year. 


The object of the Y. W. C. A. is to aid stu- 
dents in becoming better acquainted with fel- 
low students at the University. 


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.

Section IV. 




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 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, romembering tha<^ after pledge day your 
battle to prove your real worth is only startinsr. 



(This article is printed by request of tiie Inter- 
fraternity Council.) 

The National Interfraternity Conference was 
founded in 1909 for the purpose of discussing 
Questions of mutual interest and to make such 
recommendations from time to time as it 
deems wise. It is composed of sixty-fonr na- 
tional fraternities which meet strict qualifi- 
cations for membership. Its annual confer- 
ences are attended by about three hundrtd and 
fifty officers and alumni of the various frater- 
nities and about fifty deans of men and college 
presidents. It sponsors the National Under- 
graduate Interfraternity Conference, composed 
of delegates from the Interfraternity Councils 
on campuses all over the United States and 
Canada, which meets in conjunction with the 
Conference itself. It publishes a Year Book, 
the report of its annual meeting, in which 
much valuable information about college fra- 
ternity life is included. 

In the fall of 1934, the Executive Committee 
of the Conference and the Educational Advis- 
ory Council reduced to writing the following 
criteria in order further to advance co-opera- 
tion between fraternities and educational in- 
stitutions. The statement was subsequently ap- 
proved by the American Association of Deans 
and Advisers of Men and by the Conference 
itself. It reads as follows: 

We consider the fraternity responsible for 
a positive contribution to the primary func- 
tions of the colleges and universities, and 
therefore under an obligation to encourage 
the most complete personal development of 
its members, intellectual, physical and social. 
Therefore, we declare: 

1. That the objectives and activities of 
the fraternity should be in entire accord 


with the aims and purposes of the in- 
stitutions at which it has chapters. 

2. That the primary loyalty and respon- 
sibility of a student in his relations with 
his institvrtion are to the institution, and 
that the association of any group of stu- 
dents as a chapter of a fraternity involves 
the definite responsibility of the group for 
the conduct of the individual. 

3'- That the fraternity should promote 
eonduct consistent with good morals and 
good taste. 

4. That the fraternity should create an 
atmosphei'e which will stimulate substan- 
tial intellectwal progress and superior in- 
tellectual achievement. 

5. That the fraternity should maintain 
sanitary, safe and wholesome physical con- 
ditions in the chapter house. 

6. That the fraternity should inculcate 
principles of sound business practice both 
in chapter finances and in the business re- 
lations of its members. 

These criteria should be applied in close 
eo-operation with the administrative authori- 
ties of the institutions. Detailed methods of 
api^ication will n-ecessarily vary in accord- 
ance with local conditions. It is the purpose 
of the National Interfraternity Conference 
to offer detailed suggestions, after further 
study and investigation, regarding practical 
steps to make this eo-operation effective.

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 vs^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 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 
h^ld 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- 


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

(Maryland! My Maryland!) 

Thy sons and daughters throng thy door, 

Maryland ! My Maryland ! 
Their hearts and hopes they bring to thee, 

Maryland ! oh 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: 

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 tiecked the streets of Baltimore, 

And be the battle queen of yore, 
Maryland ! My Maryland ! 

Thou wilt not cower in the dust, 

Maryland ! My Maryland ! 
Thy gleaming sword shall never rust, 

Maryland ! My Maryland ! 
Remember Carroll's sacred trust. 
Remember Howard's war-like thrust. 
And all the slumb'rers with the just, 
Maryland! My Maryland! 


In the very heart of Maryland, 

In the heart of every Maryland man. 

There's a spirit so endearing 

It will win your heart and hand. 

For she doth hold sway, 

She will win the day. 

And her glorious men will ever win the frajr. 


Then it's Hurrah! Hurrah! for Maryland. 
Then's it Hurrah! Hurrah for U. of M. 
With her banners ever streaming high. 
She will always win or die. 
Never forget the glories of the past. 
Carry on triumphant to the last. 
For we love, we love Old Maryland, 
Hurrah ! Hurrah ! Hurrah ! 


U. of M. 

(Tune, Caisson Song) 

U. of M.. U. of M., 

Keep the ball away from them. 

Keep that pigskin a-rollinjr 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 ! 

Sons of Maryland 

(Tune, Sons of America) 
Sons of the Gold, 
Sons of the Black.

Needs y<>u today. 
To help win the fray. 
Shoulder to shoulder, 
Back to back, 
We'll fight together 
For the Gold and Black.

Of Maryland, 
Upon you all vict'ries stand.

Down on the field they're ficrhting. 

Pride of the Black and Gold,

Warriors of U. of M. 

Our honor they'll uphold. 

On toward the goal they're marching. 

It will not take them long. 

So, let's give a cheer. 

For the men we hold dear. 

And sing to them our Victory Song. 


Maryland, we're all behind you ; 

Wave high the Black and Gold, 

For there is nothing half so glorious 

As to see our men victorious ; 

We've got the team, boys, 

We've got the steam, boys. 

So keep on fighting, don't give in ! 

(Shout) M-A-R-Y-L-A-N-D ! 

(Sing) Maryland will win ! 

All Hail! to Our Maryland 

Let us sing to Alma Mater 

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

University of Maryland. 

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,
