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 
college life.

Realizing the importance of his work in the field 
of physics, his timely advice to students, his twenty 
years service to the University, his sincerity as a 
friend and a leader, we, the editors, of the "M 1X 
Book proudly dedicate this 191+0-191+1 edition to

Dr. H. C. Byrd 


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- 
versity life. 

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 
coming academic year with full confidence that it will be successful 
for the University as a whole and successful individually for all students 
who will earnestly strive to meet their daily responsibilities. 

H. C. BYRD, 



Dear Freshmen: 

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. 


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. 


Dean of Men 



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 
national usefullness. 

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

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'. 


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 . . .

You ivill find a cordial welcome at all the 
services. The rector will welcome an opportu- 
nity to greet and know you. 





As a representative of the upper classes, I wish to extend a friendly 
welcome to the Class of '44 and other students entering the University 
for the first time. 

Do not judge too harshly the trials of registration or fear too much 
the upper classmen. If in trouble don't hesitate to ask one of us or 
a member of the faculty for assistance. We will be only too glad to 
help you. 

After you have become oriented and more or less settled go out for 
some extracurricular activities. Don't be one who knows only his room, 
and the routes to his classes and meals. Get out and make yourself 
a part of the University. 

Make your college days happy ones, and ones that will be firmly 
imprinted in your memories. Live them to the utmost. 

Sincerely yours, 


President, Student Government 



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.

over the entire fairgrounds. Last spring the glee club joined voices 
with the George Washington University Glee Club to give a joint 
local concert. 

Try-outs for membership into both clubs are held by Harlan Randall, 
Professor of Music and director of the Glee Clubs, in September. 
Credit may be earned for participating in the clubs work by signing 
up for the course at registration.

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. 



(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, 
we declare: 

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. 

Interfraternity Council 


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.

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 
the function. 

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.

These five religious organizations have become a part of the Maryland 
campus, and provide the students with the religious fellowship and 
leadership needed in a State University. Each club has been formed 
to unite a certain creed, but the organizations often hold common 
meetings and vesper services. Under their direction vesper services 
were held in Margaret Brent Hall on Sunday evenings during the 
school year. 


In establishing the University, the State endeavored to offer edu- 
cational opportunities to all classes and not to any particular group. 

Later, to help religious organization, a faculty committee was formed. 
The present group is composed of Dr. W. B. Kemp, chairman, Professor 
Geary Eppley, Dr. Charles White, Miss Grace Lee, Dr. Mark Woods 
and Professor George Quigley. Under the direction of this committee 
student religious activities are coordinated and aided to such a degree 
that it is hoped all students will find a church home.

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".

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.

Alma Mater 

(By Bob Kinney, '41) 
Hail, Alma Mater 
Hail to thee Maryland- 
Steadfast in loyalty 
For thee we stand. 
Love for the Black and Gold, 
Deep in our hearts we hold, 
Singing thy praise forever, 
Throughout the land. 

Victory Song 

Down on the field they're fighting. 

Pride of the Black and Gold, 

Men, every one of them, 

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. 


VICTORY SONG— Continued 

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! 


by Ralph Davis 

Well, hey then, fight on for Maryland. 
Push up the score, 

Raise up your colors high; 
Never give in, boys; fight till you win, boys; 
Make the Liner score roll by — 
Make the Liner score roll by. 
Fight, fight, fight (shout) for Maryland, 
Honor her name again, 

Push up the score for a win once more for Maryland. 
Fight, fight, fight (shout) for Terrapin 
Victory our standard then, 
We'll give a cheer as they rise far and near to victory. 

U. of M. 

(Tune of Caisson Song) 

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, 

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


Sons of .Maryland 

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

Fight, No spirit lack. 
Your Alma Mater 
Needs you today. 
To help win the fray. 
Shoulder to shoulder, 
Back to back, 
We'll fight together 
For the Gold and Black. 
Fair Sons and Daughters 
Of Maryland 
Upon you all vict'ries stand. 

Bona of Old Maryland, 
Old Maryland needs you! 
Stand by your colors, boys, 
And to them e'er be true! 
Fight for old Maryland, 
Old Liners! Stand. 
Defenders of the Black and Gold 
Throughout this land.

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 necked 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! My Maryland!) 

The 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 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 brighest dreams, 

Blest giver of life's precious things. 

To thee each heart its service brings:— 
Maryland! My Maryland!
