TO TESTUDO, THE TERRAPIN 

. . . in whose sturdy 
bronze body the Maryland spirit is incarnate. The editors 
feel it is fitting that this handbook, issued for the guidance of 
the freshmen, the newest element of the University, shoidd honor 
the most revered object on the campus. 

Because he represents the finest in the University's athletics, 
dramatics, music, and other activities which are an integral 
part of college life . . . because he is a symbol of Maryland's 
past glories and ftdure greatness . . . the editors humbly dedicate 
this book to TESTUDO, 



^OAj&UM^ 



An opportunity to get a college education is a great re- 
sponsibility at any time, but today in this war-torn world 
when the United States is enduring the stress and strain of 
national defense, the person who has the opportunity faces 
even greater responsibility. 

Just a few years ago, freshmen entering college faced four 
3'ears of secure study, and then the ordeal of hunting a life's 
work. But you, the freshmen of 1941-42, are entering when 
nothing is secure. So 3^ou cannot afford to waste any time 
in vain and idle pleasures. You must make every hour 
count! 

Perhaps the transition from preparatorj^ school to college 
may seem difficult; perhaps yoiu" instructors are more ex- 
acting, and your studies harder, but if you will remember 
that college is the last step before facing the world, and 
that it must prepare you for the world's hard knocks, your 
studies will seem simpler and more sensible. 

Studies and books are the reason for a college, but thej' 
are not the end of it. To be successful, a college must emit 
a graduate who is well-rounded, and able to face life; studies 
alone will not do this. For this reason, the University, 
through the Student Government Association, aids in extra- 
curricular activities which bring social contacts, and ex- 
periences not found in books. 

A caution, which will be unheeded in many cases, is not 
to let the social side of school assume too much importance. 
Studies are still the important thing, and should come first. 

Remember that you are becoming part of a great, and 
fast growing University. Grow with it and learn its history 
and traditions, its songs and yells, and its students. 

Last of all, but most important, remember that you are 
an American.

PRESIDENT BYRD GREETS THE FROSH 




It is a pleasure, 
through the pages 
of the "M" Book, 
to extend greetings 
to all students of 
the ["niversity at 
tlie beginning of 
this new year. We 
are glad, as always, 
to see back on the 
campus old stu- 
dents, and all of u.s 
are anxious to get 
acquainted with 
now students so 
that we may help 
them feel at home, 
because they are 
now part of the 
University. 

New students, as well as old, will have opportunities for 
many extra-curricular activities and all should enter into 
such of these activities as appeal to them and which do not 
interfere with their scholastic work. Contacts, through such 
activities, help to build the student into a well-rounded man 
or woman. 

Every member of the Faculty is anxious to help you make 
a success of your university career. Do not hesitate to call 
on any of as whenever you feel we can be of assistance in 
meeting your problems. 



Dr. Harry C. Byrd 



10 



After the present national emergency is over, trained 
leadership will be needed as never before to solve the difficult 
problems that always present themselves in the transition 
from an over-stimulated economy, such as we now have, to 
so-called "normalcy". It is to the students, like yourselves, 
now in college, that the Nation must look to assume a large 
share of this responsibility; and on the extent to which you 
make the best of your present opportunities will depend 
your fitness to meet your responsibilities and to achieve 
success in life. 

To each student in tlie Univeisity, may I say: 
"My office door is always open to you. Walk in whenever 
you wish." 

Sincerely, 



<M. e. liiyid 



Pi-esident. 



Acting Dean Reid Welcomes You 

A sincere wel- 
come to both in- 
coming students 
and to returning 
upper classmen. 
We are delighted to 
meet the old stu- 
dents upon the 
Campus again and 
look forward with 
genuine pleasure to 
an association with 
those who are en- 
tering the Univer- 
sity for the first 
time. 

We want you to 
feel that Maryland 
is your l^niversity 
and that you are a 
part of it. You will 
be expected not 
onlj' to make an 
acceptable academ- 
ic record, but to 
engage in whole- 
.some recreation and to participate actively in extra-curricular 
activities. Loj^al, capable, enthusiastic leadership and clear 
logical thinking are needed more now during these difficult 
and confused times than ever in the past, and this is your 
opportunity to develop that type of leadership. 

It is my wish that new students will feel free to call upon 
faculty members or upon upper classmen for advice, and 
I assure both old and new students that you are cordially 
invited to call at my office at any time to discuss any prob- 
lems that vou mav have.

DEAN STAMP ADDS HER MESSAGE 



Dear Freshmen : 

You who come to 
our University 
campus this fall 
start your college 
career facing the 
greatest crisis the 
world has ever 
known. Democracy 
is being threatened 
and each and every 
one of you is called 
upon to help defend 
America and help 
win the Battle of 
Production. In mo- 
bilizing the nation 
to meet this crisis 
we must have three 
lines of defense — 
first, sound homes; 
second,team work in 
industry; and third, 
a United Nation. 
We cannot produce 
weapons and supplies needed for total defense unless we have 
all three. We must have the will and the belief of the people 
in order to win. Maryland can and will do its share in 
defending America. We need your help as individuals and 
the University will point the wa}^ toward the services you 
can render your country. I know no matter how hard the 
task you will always be ready and will gladly make sacrifices, 
display courage and do your part for a united nation and 
help keep "free people free." 

Sincerelv vours, 




Dean Adele H. Stamp

LOST TO UNCLE 
MAJOR GEARY F. EPPLEY AND 




Major Geary F. Kppley 



Major Geary F. Kppley is Dean of Men and Director of 
Athletics, but right now during the crisis, he is serving his 
tour of duty at Fort Meade. Nevertheless Major Eppley's 
influence may still be felt on the campus, and when he has 
leave, "Swede" can be seen around the hill.

Lieutenant Ralph I. Williams, on active duty as an 
instructor in the military department at Maryland, will 
continue to have a finger in nearly everything that is going 
on around the University. But during working houis, when 
Uncle Sam is the boss, he will be all armv.

"Hail, Alma Mater 
Hail to thee Maryland 
Steadfast in loyalty 
For thee we stand. " 

In tliese words are echoed the sentiments of every student 
of the University of Maryland, past, present, and futuie. 
The Students of the past who have graduated cherish many 
tender memories of their loving Alma Mater; those of the 
present are striving to make in the University more improvo- 
iiients that will be enjoyed by those of the future. 

When the College of Medicine was founded in Baltimore 
in 1807, the history of the University of Maryland began. 
Ikapidly expanding, the University added a School of Law 
in 1823, a School of Dentistry in 1882, a School of Nursing 
in 1889, and in 1904, absorbed the Maryland College of 
Pharmacy. 

The Maryland State College was chartered in 1856 under 
the name of the Maryland Agriculture College, the second 
agriculture college in the Western Hemisphere. In 1862, 
the College became in part a State institution with the 
passage of the Uand Grant Act by the Congress of the United 
States. 

By an act of the State Legislature in 1920, the University 
of Maryland was merged with the Maryland State College, 
and the resulting institution was given the name, the Uni- 
versity of Maryland.

THINGS FOR FRESHMEN TO KNOW 

Maryland University is one of the fastest growing schools 
in the east, and offers a complete and well rounded program 
academically and socially. 

Well educated leaders are needed in these trying times, 
and digging in books, and carrying an eager brain around 
does as much good for your country as digging ditches and 
carrying a rifle. Many of the draftees would trade places 
with you gladly. 

Grades may not mean everj^thing, but the person with 
a high average usually learns more and gets more out of his 
college education. 

The freshman year is most important. 

Everyone was a "rat" or a "rabbit" once, but most persons 
outgrow this stage. Take cheer, frosh! 

Every smooth freshman should know that: 

Cutting classes is dangerous . . . expensive just before or 
after a holiday. 

It takes at least ten minutes to walk from ye old drug store 
to a class, and at least twenty to drive. 

19 



The librar}' is a place to read, study, and research, not 
make dates. 

Every footstep kills 976 blades of grass. Stay on the 
walks and save the 976. 

The "Hello Habit" is an honor and a privilege. You'll 
find this out when you want to meet Susie or Johnny.

S. G. A. PRESIDEJNI HOLBROOK SPEAKS 

Groetings! To all 

of you who are just 

^gtfMjkjl^^ entering Maryland, 

^^^^^^^HHjjjJi^^^ the student body 

^^^^H^HHHHjlJk extendsamost 

W^^^^^^^^BBk cordial greeting. 

I fp ^HV ^^ ^^^ ^^^^ ^*^ ^^''' 

{ ^ ^H f'ome you to our 

'■ "% campus and want 

..^- L . ^ y<^u to lose no 

' t^-'"'/ time in sharing 

; ^ ' •' with us our many 

'■', activities. 

- - - It is my pleasure 

as a representative 
of the Student Gov- 
crnmentAssociation 
to tender some sug- 
gestions which I 
hope will help you 
launch a successful 
and enjoyable col- 
lege career. 

As soon as you 
Kill Hoi brook have become orient- 

ed to your academic 
routnic (it's only fair that this i^hould bo first), enter into our 
extensive program of extracurricular activities with en- 
thusiasm. Make yourself a real part of Maryland, and, 
especially if you are a daydodger, become affiliated with 
campus organizations — academic, social, athletic, or other- 
wise — for their benefits are innumerable. 

Above all, begin your college career with a strong and ever 
increasing pride in the University of Maryland, its campus 
and its traditions. As 3'^ou perhaps have already noticed, 
the campus is in a state of transition. Many improvements 
have already been made, more are underway, and others 
are being planned, all of which, w^hen completed, will make 

22 




Maryland one of the most-up-to-date and beautiful schools 
in the nation. During these next few years we want you to 
help us weave Maryland tradition about these new sections 
of the campus so that they too will be as much a part of 
Maryland University as the original charter itself. 

Last but not least, enjoy Maryland's oldest tradition, the 
"Hello Habit", which is a natural outgrowth of the friendly, 
southern atmosphere which abounds on our campus. Let's 
keep it here! 

Sincerely,

FUNCTIONING OF THE STUDENT 
GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION 

The Student Government Association of the I'niversity 
of Maiyland is the official representative body of the undei- 
graduates. Members are chosen from the students, elected 
by the students, and their primary and sole purpose is to 
serve the students. A President, the most responsible student 
office on the campus, is elected in the spring, along witii 
other officers. The President supervises the work of all 
organizations, and acts as an ex-officio member of each. 

Three main divisions comprise the S.G.A. The Executive 
Council, supreme governing body, decides student questions 
and formulates policy; the Men's and Women's Leagues 
decide on and enforce all campus regulations; and the entire 
student body may attend meetings and enter into the dis- 
cussions. Only when the students are alert, cooperative and 
sincerely interested, can the S.G.A. prove a success. Meetings 
are held twice a month, or oftener, and are open to the 
public. 

Student activities are controlled by tlie S.G.A., and are 
financed for the most part by an activities fee which is paid 
by all students in the University. From this fee, the mone}' 
is prorated to the various activities, and the payment of this 
fee entitles a student to all the publications, tickets to dra- 
matic, operatic, and debate performances, and to most 
student dances. Class dues are also included in this fee. 

In addition to these duties, the S.G.A. acts as a co-or- 
dinating body between all student groups, and with the 
administration. 

Records of each organization, which are always open for 
inspection, are kept by the administration. Furthermore, 
each organization treasurer keeps his own records as a check. 
All bills are vouchered and the accounts are audited by the 
State Auditor at the end of each year. The first issue of 
THE DIAMOXDBACK prints a' full statement of the 
income and expenses of each group.

COMMITTEE ON STUDENT LIFE 

Back of all the Student activities on the Maryland Campus 
is the Committee on Student Life, linking the student groups 
with the University administration. This committee, headed 
by Dr. Charles E. White, is not organized to criticise and 
lay down rules for the students, but rather they are organized 
to work with the students and to show them how to work 
out problems which may arise; not only problems of the 
present but problems which will arise when they are working 
in their community and state in later years. 

This group is composed of members of the faculty who are 
greatly interested in the student body and they are always 
willing to give of their time to work with the different or- 
ganizations. 

The student life committee urges the students to take 
part in the extra-curricula activities on the campus. Thei^ 
are numerous clubs, music organizations, such as the Uni- 
versity Band and orchestra, dramatics, intramural sports, 
dancing clubs, and pubUcations staffs, such as The Diamond- 
back and Old Line in which the student may work and better 
fit himself for later years. By joining some of the Maryland 
organizations a student has a change from the monotony of 
classes, books, studj^ing, and more classes. 

Other members of the committee which urges the student 
to participate in student activities are: Major Geary F. 
Eppley, Colonel Robert E. Wysor, Professor Charles L. 
Mackert, Dr. John E. Faber, Professor Charles G. Eichlin, 
Dr. Susan E. Harman, Miss Adele G. Stamp, Mr. George 
F. Pollock, Lieutenant Ralph L Williams, Miss Francis Ide, 
Miss Mary Ann Johnson, Miss Gwendolyn A. Drew, Professor 
Russell B. Allen, Dr. Xorman E. Philhps, Dr. L. H. James, 
Dr. Otis E. Lancaster, Professor Charles F. Kramer, Miss 
Alma H. Preinkert, Dr. William A. Griffith, and Lieutenant

Concerning Fraternities 

The aim and dream of many a freshman is to attain mem- 
bership 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, edu- 
cational, 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 eflfect 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 culti- 
vating or keeping as intimate friends. Some of your 
best friends in the Freshmen 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 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 Interfraternitv 
Council.) 

The National Interfraternity Conference \A'as 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 fra- 
ternities which meet strict qualifications for membership. 
Its annual conferences are attended by about three hundred 
and fifty officers and alumni of the various fraternities 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 m 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 Con- 
ference and the Educational Advisory Council reduced to 
wntmg the following criteria in order further to advance 
co-operation between fraternities and educational institutions. 
The statement was subsequently approved by the American 
Association of Deans and Advisers of Men and by the Con- 
ference 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 development of its members 

intellectual, physical and social. Therefore, we declare: 

^u Ti^^* *^^ objectives and activities of the fraternity 

should be in entire accord with the aims and purposes 

of the institutions at which it has chapters. 

77 



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 in- 
dividual. 

3. That the fraternity should promote conduct con- 
sistent with good morals and good taste. 

4. That the fraternity should create an atmosphere 
which will stimulate substantial intellectual progress 
and superior intellectual achievement. 

5. That the fraternity should maintain sanitary, 
safe and wholesome physical conditions in the chapter 
hou.se. 

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 nece.ssarily 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 Vincen Hughes 

Vice-President Leib McDonald 

Secretary James Miller 

Treasurer Charles Harry 

. The Interfraternity Council is composed of two repre- 
sentatives from each fraternity on the campus. Its purpose 
is to endeavor to create a mutual understanding and harmony 
among the various fraternal groups. 

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, basket 
ball, and softball, and the winning fraternity is given an 
award. 

This last year, the Council offered a cup to the fraternity 
which excelled in extracurricular activities, which was won 
by Sigma Nu Fraternity.

SOUTHERN CONFERENCE RULES 

Maryland is a charter member of the Southern Intercol- 
legiate Athletic Conference which includes Washington and

Its purpose is to promote intercollegiate athletics in every

strengthen the moral fiber of students, and form a constituent 
part of that education for which universities and colleges 
were established and are maintained. 

All athletics at Maryland operate under the direction of 
the Athletic Board composed of Professor Geary Eppley, 
chairman; Dr. Ernest Cory, Dr. Levin Broughton, Dr. 
William B. Kemp, and Dr. William Supplee. 

For the rules of eligibility of the Southern Conference, 
consult your copy of the Academic Regulations.

Varsity competition is carried on in football, soccer, boxing,

Cheer Leaders 

Head Cheer-leader— Ralph Bridges 

Barbara England Dody Schene

Jx)lly Park George Simons 

Traditional at the University of Maryland is the rivalry 
between the sophomore and freshman classes. You, the 
freshman of the class of '45, are about to become a part of this 
great tradition. 

The first necessary step is to learn the songs and cheers of 
your school. Show your "school spirit" by coming to the 
football games and other athletic events and yelling your 
lungs out for the old alma mater. 

Remember that those boys out on the field are fighting for 
you, always in there trying to win. A cheer of encouragement 
from you may mean the difference between victory and defeat. 

Freshmen should also remember the fact that they are new- 
comers to an institution of higher learning. As such, they 
will be asked to obey a few simple rules drawn up by Barnett 
Broughton, president of the sophomore class. 

The rules which follow are subject to addition or amendment 
at any time. Any violations are punishable by the sophomore 
class. 

THE EIGHT COMMANDMENTS 

1. Frosh must learn all school yells and songs and turn out 
for all pep rallies. 

2. Frosh must csury Bibles (M Books) at all times. 

3. Frosh must attend all varsity football games and sit in 
Frosh cheering section. 

Ill 



4. Frosh must develop the "Hello Habit''. 

5. Frosh must not cut campus. 

. 6. Frosh must show respect for upperclassmen, obeying all 
reasonable orders and granting them the right of way. 

7. Frosh must wear rat hats and name plates at all times. 

8. Frosh must not wear insignia won at any school other 
than the University of Maryland. 

The following are the recognized songs and cheers of the 
University of Marjdand, which it is hoped that all freshmen 
will learn carefully: 

ALMA MATER 

(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! 

112 



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! 

Victory Song

Pride of the Black and Gold, 

Men, every one of them,

It will not take them long. 

So, let's give a cheer, 

For the men we hold dear.

Chorus 
Maryland, we're all behind you;

We've got the steam, boys, 
So keep on fighting, don't give in! 

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

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!
