Prince George's Bank
and Trust Co.
T. Howard Duckett, President
Extends to you greetings and a welcome and in-
vites you to make this bank your depository
while at the University.
Do not keep money in your room — pay your
bills by check.
This prevents loss, robbery, extravagance and
The facilities of this bank are at your command.
You freshmen in entering the University are setting sail upon one
of the vital phases of your career. Your college work and activity
will often determine the nature of achievements that will come in later
We, the editors of the "M" Book, hope that you will profit from
your association with the University, as well as obtain the utmost
from your four year stay here.
To you the transition from preparatory school to college may seem
difficult, but if you will remember a few simple rules your adjustment
to university life will be greatly facilitated.
First and foremost remember that you came to college to learn to
prepare yourself for later work, and that the only way to do that is
by study. However, don't be onesided. The Student Government
Association offers an excellent program of extracurricular activities,
and you should be able to find one activity that appeals to you.
Take part in only a few activities the first year, later, as you become
better oriented, you will have time for additional ones.
And finally, remember that you are becoming part of a great Uni-
versity. Learn its history, its traditions, its songs and cheers, so
that you can absorb to the utmost the great and glorious spirit of

To students entering the University for the first time, and to returning
students, a hearty welcome is extended.
To students coming back to the campus, to whom Freshman students
naturally will turn for helpful advice, I ask your help in introducing
the new students to the campus traditions, which mean much in Uni-
To new and old students we would emphasize that administrative
officers, faculty and staff, are all anxious to extend every possible
assistance in meeting your problems. Feel free to call on any of us
at any time.
With the splendid student body we now have, the enlarged physical
facilities and the strengthened teaching staff, we look forward to the

"M" BOOK MESSAGE
A hearty and cordial welcome to you who are entering college em-
barking upon a new experience. I hope that your college years will
be all that you have anticipated. In these tragic days in which we are
living the world needs educated men and women as never before. Make
the most of your opportunities — a college education is a privilege and
one not to be regarded lightly. We need trained minds, clear thinkers,
and well balanced individuals to help solve the problems arising in our
ever changing world. After the holocaust in Europe is over, you, the
youth of our country, are the ones to whom we must turn to help
preserve our democracy.
ADELE H. STAMP,
Dean of Women
Greetings to the Students of the University of Maryland! It is
a pleasure to renew my fellowship with the returning students and to
become associated with the students entering Maryland for the first
The problem of training yourself in this war torn world may be
somewhat confusing, but it is no different from training in normal
times. The fundamental principles of good citizenship are the same,
but the necessity for these principles and the responsibility of citizenship
is brought more vividly to our attention. Loyalty, faith, optimism,
enthusiasm, perseverance, and consideration of one's fellowmen are
characteristics our citizens and leaders must have if our nation is to
endure. A student who leads a normal, healthy life, performs each
duty to the best of his ability, and takes an active interest in the Uni-
versity, will develop the essential attributes of a good citizen and be
an asset to his state and nation.
It will be a pleasure to have you call at my office at any time to discuss
your personal affairs, or matters for the good of our University.

TO THE FROSH
To Members of the Class of '44:
It is a pleasure to welcome the class of '44, a class which should be
more aware of the need for intelligent leadership and conscientious
study than many classes which have preceded it.
We hope you will take advantage of every opportunity in class and
extracurricular activity to equip yourselves for personal success and
Not only the staff of the offices of the Dean of Men and Dean of
Women are anxious to help you with those special problems which may
arise during your college career; but also every member of the University
faculty and staff is eager to make your first year in college a step toward

NOW FROSH, IT STARTED WAY BACK IN 1807
We dropped by to see the Terrapin down in front of the Coliseum
the other day . . . One thing led to another, and before long we found
ourselves reminiscing —
"Yep," said the Terrapin, "It sure is swell to stop near the top of
the ladder for a moment and look down over the ground we have
covered. Things have sure changed. It all began with the Maryland
College of Medicine. . . established in Baltimore in 1807 . . . the fifth
oldest medical school in the United States. (We notice a slight chest
expansion) . . . Annapolis in 1812 authorized divinity, law, and arts
and science additions . . . Med. college and the newbies as a group
were christened the University of Maryland . . . For good measure
they stuck in a dental school in 1840 . . . the first in the world (enormous
chest expansion) ... a nursing school in 1889 . . . and a school of
pharmacy in 1841 . . . the third oldest pharmacy college in the country
(inhale) . . .-
"The other equally honorable ancestor . . . the Maryland Agricultural
College . . . was chartered in 1856 . . . the second agricultural college
in the new world . . . (there went his vest buttons) . . . Uncle Sam,
with his Land Grant Act, wrote out a check for the Ag. College, which
was not yet entirely a state institution . . . Men, that Land Grant
stuff is the reason for R.O.T.C. . . . 1914 is the milestone at which the
state took over complete control of the Maryland Ag. College . . .
Thinking that 'Agriculture College' sounded a little too 'cowish', they
broke a champagne bottle over it and called it the Maryland State
College in 1916 . . . guilding the lily . . .
"Realizing the possibilities of these two institutions, in 1920 the
honorables at Annapolis thought the two ought to get together . . .
result was a merging of the University of Maryland of the well known
Lombard and Greene Streets site with the Maryland State College.
"P. S. they gave it the present name . . . the University of Mary-
land ... At this time the ladies got a word in, and all branches of the
U. of M. were made coeducational . . .
'39 brought about a need for campus guides . . . New buildings
sprang up everywhere . . • And as 1940 unwinds itself, we pat ourselves
on the back and say, 'more power to us, The Terp'.
RECENT EXPANSION PROGRAM
One morning we looked around, and the new buildings had sprung
up like mushrooms . . . only these mushrooms were worth $2,400,000.
The funds came from a Public Works Administration grant, the State
Legislature, and private gifts. The physical plant of the University
has been increased by thirty five percent by the program.
The first improvement was the enlargement of the University In-
firmary. It will now accomodate fifty patients. The New Men's
Dormitory Group, holding 400 students, is quite an imposing sight.
The General Service Building across the Boulevard is another campus
innovation. The University Dining Hall was enlarged to serve 1100
people at each meal. A forty room addition to the old Engineering
Building houses the College of Arts and Sciences. The College of
Home Economics was also given a new home, which is the structure
in the rear of the Chemistry Building. Other buildings include a
beautiful new Administration Building, and a Poultry Research Labo-
ratory and Plant.
The beautiful old Rossborough Inn has been the most outstanding
project of the recent improvement program. Built in 1798, the Ross-
borough Inn served as one of the stopping places on the main post road
running from the South to Baltimore and the North. The Inn is
used at the present as a joint museum and faculty-alumni center.
And in the future loom a new auditorium, a new football stadium,
and a swimming pool. The University marches on . . .

President, Student Government
FUNCTIONING OF THE STUDENT
The Student Government Association of the University of Maryland
is divided into several independent organizations. The Executive
Council, which is the supreme governing body, has power to establish
student policy and retains final jurisdiction in all student governing
questions. Campus regulations are formulated and enforced by the
Men's League and Women's League respectively. A faculty com-
mittee known as the Student Life Committee supervises the work
of all student governing groups
The president of the Student Government Association, who holds
the highest student political office on the campus, is elected by the
student body in the spring. The president supervises the work of all
four organizations and acts as an ex-officio member of each.
The vice-president of the S. G. A. acts as chairman of the Executive
Council, thus enabling the president of the Association to act as a voting
member and more adequately facilitate legislation.
Meetings of the organization, which are closed to the public, are held
twice each month or more often at the discretion of the president.
All student activities under the Association are financed by an
activities fee of ten dollars which is paid by the students upon entrance
to the University. This fee is apportioned among the various organiza-
tions, so that admittance to all dramatic, debate, and operatic per-
formances is free and all publications are distributed without charge
to those who have paid the fee.

The aim and dream of many a freshman is to attain membership
in a great collegiate fraternity. To many, this dream means luxury
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, educational, and social standards
of the group.
In a few weeks many will have the opportunity to join one of these
lodges. The opportunities 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 back-
ward 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
Freshmen Class will not be in your fraternity. Do not lose
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 perseverance
you show in either situation. Some men are actually made by
fraternal affiliation; others submerged or ruined. Choose your
course carefully, remembering that after pledge day your battle
to prove your real worth is only starting.
THE FRATERNITY CRITERIA
(This article is printed by request of the Interfraternity 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-four national fraternities which meet strict quali-
fications for membership. Its annual conferences are attended by
about three hundred and fifty officers and alumni of the various fra-
ternities and about fifty deans of men and college presidents. It
sponsors the National Undergraduate 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
fraternity life is included.
In the fall of 1934, the Executive Committee of the Conference and
the Educational Advisory Council reduced to writing the following
criteria in order further to advance co-operation between fraternities
and educational institutions. 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 functions of the colleges and universities, and therefore
under an obligation to encourage the most complete personal develop-
ment of its members, intellectual, physical and social. Therefore,
1. That the objectives and activities of the fraternity should
be in entire accord with the aims and purposes of the institutions
at which it has chapters.
2. That the primary loyalty and responsibility of a student
in his relations with his institution are to the institution, and
that the association of any group of students 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 conduct consistent with
good morals and good taste.
4. That the fraternity should create an atmosphere which will
stimulate substantial intellectual progress and superior intellectual
5. That the fraternity should maintain sanitary, safe and
wholesome physical conditions in the chapter house.
6. That the fraternity should inculcate principles of sound
business practice both in chapter finances and in the business
relations of its members.
These criteria should be applied in close co-operation with the
administrative authorities of the institutions. Detailed methods of
application will necessarily vary in accordance 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 co-operation effective.
President Walter Spelsberg
Vice-President Robert Ayres
Secretary-Treasurer Robert Rice
The Interfraternity Council is composed of two representatives from
each fraternity on the campus. Its purpose is to endeavor to create
a mutual understanding and harmony among the various fraternal
Certain social functions in which the fraternities participate are
supervised by the organization. The Interfraternity Ball held each
year is one of the social highlights of the year.
The Interfraternity Council sponsors interfraternity sports during
the year. Tournaments are held in track, basketball, and softball
and the winning fraternity is given an award.

PANHELLENIC RUSH RULES 1940-1941
l_The period of time from the arrival of new students in the fall
until rushing begins shall be governed by the following rules
termed "closed rushing":
(a) No new students shall be allowed in sorority houses.
(b) No sorority girl shall visit in new students' rooms or homes
or entertain new students in their rooms or homes. This
rule shall likewise apply during the rush season.
(c) No mention shall be made of sororities except as an impersonal
answer to a direct question of a new student.
2— There shall be no rushing during the summer or previous to the
rush season, the sixth week of school. A party consisting of not
more than three people, sorority and non-sorority, shall be con-
sidered rushing. There shall be no rushing off campus (the
campus consists of an area formed by the Girls' Field House, the
Dairy, the Grill and the sorority houses). No rushees shall
be "treated" outside of the sorority houses preceding and during
rushing. There shall be no formal banquets, dances, or parties.
3— Rushing shall begin the sixth week of school with Open House
teas at every sorority house. No special invitations are issued to
these teas (the office of the Dean of Women issues a reminder
to all non-sorority women), but all girls interested in joining
a sorority are invited to attend these Open Houses from 4 to 7 p.m.
At these Open Houses verbal invitations to 3 rush functions may
be issued by each sorority. No overnight invitations may be
issued at this time.
4 — Beginning on Monday and continuing until a Preference Tea on
the second Sunday each sorority will give verbal invitations to
teas and dinners. The 15-15 rule shall be in effect at teas, and the
10-10 rule shall be in effect at all other functions except the Open
House teas and the Preference Tea. The 15-15 rule is: When
there are 15 rushees present at a rush function there may be an
unlimited number of sorority members present, but if more than
15 rushees are present there may be only 15 sorority members.
The 10-10 rule reads the same substituting 10 for 15.
5 — Invitations for overnight may be issued any time after 8 a.m.
Tuesday. Overnight invitations shall mean Friday dinner to
Saturday lunch or Saturday dinner to Sunday lunch.
6 — After a rushee has accepted a verbal invitation to a rush function,
she shall be given a Panhellenic printed reminder card on which
will appear the name of the sorority, the function and the date of
7 — Each sorority will give a Preference Tea on the second Sunday
from 4 to 7 p.m. There is no limitation on sorority invitations to
this function. Each rushee may accept two invitations. Each
sorority shall present a list of invitations to the office of the Dean
of Women by 9 a.m. on Friday. Notices to the rushees will
be placed in their mail boxes by Friday afternoon. Rushees
shall come to the office of the Dean of Women anytime Friday
from 12 noon to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon
and make their acceptances.
8 — All rushees must be out of sorority houses by 7:30 p.m. on Monday
through Thursday nights and 7 p.m. Sunday nights.
9 — At 7 p.m. the second Sunday a silence period will go into effect
which will last until 5 p.m. Tuesday. During the silence period
conversations between sorority girls and rushees are limited to
"Hello". A list of girls receiving bids must be in the Office of
the Dean of Women by 9 a.m. Monday. Non-sorority women
will be informed that they have received bids by a letter from the
Office of the Dean of Women. These letters are put in the mail
boxes by 9 a.m. Tuesday. Girls receiving a letter shall go to the
Office of the Dean of Women any time between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday to sign individual preference cards. Signing a preference
card is binding. Tuesday at 5 p.m. shall be the formal pledge
hour, but no notice of girls receiving bids will be posted.
10 — There shall be no alumnae present during rushing, and all rules
are binding on sorority pledges as well as members.

WEARERS OF THE "M
The goal of every man in the Freshman class is to win a black sweater
displaying the golden "M" of Maryland. Each of the men listed
below has attained this goal, some of them several times. Some have
received their letters with less effort than others, but none without
a great sacrifice of time and energy. It does not take much effort
to go out on the field on a Saturday afternoon and receive the plaudits
of the crowd, but the work for which the athlete is rewarded with the
"M" is the result of long afternoons of practice and hard training.
In the growing list of Varsity sports there is room for almost anyone
who is willing to "put out" to gain the "M".

LEARN THE YELLS
SO.\(iS All YELLS
Under the leadership of Gene Howard, the head cheerleader, you
freshmen will receive your first real taste of college life, when you are
introduced to the Maryland songs and yells. This section contains
the real spirit of the Old Line institution — so learn these songs, and
yells, and when that black and gold team starts rolling . . . show that
real Maryland spirit, and yell for all your worth.
The Class of '43, which will rule you '44'ers, was undoubtedly one
of the most spirited groups in many years. Do your best to match
their record, and show the upperclassmen that the Class of '44 is the
hottest class that has ever hit the Maryland campus. Take it away '44.
