When S.G.A. President, Ray Grelecki took office last 
May, he was quick to realize the inadequacy of the constitu- 
tion under which Maryland's Student Government Associa- 
tion had been laboring for a number of years. 

Believing that successful revision would require more 
than his own efforts or those of the other S.G.A. officers, 
Grelecki laid plans for a convocation of student leaders to 
undertake the project. Before the semester was over, the 
Seminar in Student Government Problems had become a 

Chosen from class officers, club presidents, and other 
interested campus leaders, the members of the new organiza' 
tion represented practically every active interest at the 
University. Looking around for a faculty advisor, Grelecki 
discovered, in the College of Education, Dr. Harold C. Hand, 
who had previously supervised a similar student project at 
Stanford University. 

The Stanford experiment resulted in the publication of 
a book. Campus Actiwties by Dr. Hand and his student 
co'workers. The newly-formed Seminar, after reviewing 
the work, immediately adopted it as their official textbook. 
Through Dr. Hand's effort, the project was designated 

officially as a credit course, and two credits per semester 
were given to those who requested them. 

On July 14, Chairman Grelecki sounded the opening gun 
when he informed the student body that Maryland was 
organized under a "complex and mal'conceived constitU' 
tion." This constitution, he pointed out, had been allowed 
to continue through a long period of time without so much 
as a change in detail, regardless of the fact that time itself, 
as well as the three'semester plan, has produced changed 
conditions to which it cannot be adjusted. 

To further prove his point, the S.G.A. president re' 
marked that Maryland's constitution is all constitution — it 
contains no bylaws. This means that practically every 
move made by the S.G.A. Executive Council, top student 
governing group, should be submitted to a popular vote of 
the students. "Since this condition exists," declared 
Grelecki, "we violate our constitution by approving the 
constitution of new clubs and organizations on campus, we 
violate it every time we allocate finances, and whenever the 
matter of team managers comes up." 

Dr. Hand deplored the fact that the constitution is out 
of step with the times and that class officers find it necessary 
to continually violate it in order to carry on business. He 
further expresses the importance of delegated freedom for 
student officers. "We live what we learn," he said, "We 
should learn to Hve democratically while in college and, in 
so doing, live democratically the rest of our lives." 

He cautioned, however, that all freedom received would 
be delegated freedom, and he suggested that a mutual line 
of demarcation be worked out between the Administration 
and the Student Government Association, in order to let 
student officers know just where they stand. "The purpose 
of the University, and ultimately of the state," he declared, 
"defines our freedom." He urged that a committee be 
appointed to study the original charter of the University 
with an eye to these aims. 

In its first public statement, the Seminar issued the 
following statement of key principles. They served to 
demonstrate to the students what the present constitution 
did not contain and what their Seminar was working for: 

1. Government by consent of the governed. 

2. Constitutional government with powers defined. 

3. Representative government. 

4. Equal opportunities for all students. 

5. Must be workable under the two or three semester 

6. Delegated authority and a charter of freedom. 

7. Freedom of protest, assembly, press, speech within 
the limits of the charter of freedom. 

8. Brevity and simplicity should be striven for. 

9. Facilitation of personal participation in govern- 

Exactly one month later, after conferences with faculty 
leaders and investigation of conditions at other schools, the 
Seminar had compiled the following framework, which, 
however, was not made pubHc at the time: 

Herewith we present the official statement of the 

We see the necessity for three documents: 

1. A University Administration Charter to the 

2. A Constitution for the S.G.A. 

3. Bylaws to accompany the S.G.A. Constitution. 
In Sections A, B and C below, we suggest what it seems 

to us these three documents should respectively contain. 

A. University Administration Charter To The S.G.A.: 

1. Should stipulate that the top governing group in 
the S.G.A. is to be known as the Executive 


Should stipulate that all dealings of the University 
Administration apropos of student government 
will be channelled through the Executive Council. 
Should stipulate the responsibilities — i.e., the 
broad functions to be performed, the jurisdiction, 
as it were — which are delegated to the S.G.A. 
through the Executive Council. 
Should stipulate the authority which is delegated 
to the S.G.A. through the Executive Council; 
which should be correlative to the responsibility 
delegated to this body. 

Should stipulate that the Executive Council may 
delegate these delegated responsibilities and 
authorities to subsidiary governing bodies which 
it may create in consonance with the S.G.A. 
Constitution, but that the Executive Council will 
be held accountable by the University Administra' 
tion for the efficient discharge of all responsibiHties 
so delegated. Should further stipulate that no 
student governing group not chartered by this 
Executive Council will be permitted by the 
University Administration. 
Should stipulate the general nature of the student 
and faculty representation on the Executive 
Council, and the general procedure for selecting 
these representatives. 

(1) The Charter should stipulate three faculty 
members, all ex'officio. (Dean of Men, 
Dean of Women, Chairman of Student Life 
Committee, or acceptable substitutes), with 
voice but without voting or office-holding 

(2) It should stipulate student members, 
selected by the student body as provided in 
the S.G.A. Constitution. 

7. Should stipulate the key principles to be lived up 
to, both in letter and in spirit, by the Executive 
Council and by any and all subsidiary bodies 
chartered by it (i.e., the Executive Council). 

8. Should stipulate that if and when the Faculty- 
Student Court (see No. 9 below) rules that any of 
these principles have been violated, the University 
Administration will retract the delegated func' 
tion and authority in question. 

9. Should stipulate the composition of the Court 
(four faculty members exclusive of the ex'officio 
members on Executive Council, appointed by the 
University Administration; five students elected 
at large, exclusive of any on the Executive 
Council, as provided in the S.G.A. Constitution), 
and the procedural method to be followed by it 
(how charges are to be preferred; right of accused 
student officer or body to a copy of the charges 
and to counsel of his or their own choosing; 
published opinion of the Court stating charges, 
facts in the case, and judgment or decision; right 
of appeal to President of University). 

10. Should stipulate the conditions under which, and 
the manner in which, parts or all of this Charter 
to the S.G.A. might be rescinded by the Univer- 
sity Administration. 
B. S.G.A. Constitution: 

1. Should contain a preamble in which would be 
given the University Administration Charter to 
the S.G.A. This preamble should clearly state 
that all responsibilities and correlative authority 
covered by the Constitution and Bylaws are 
delegated, and that these may properly be re- 
tracted by the University Administration if 
either the letter or spirit of the stipulated prin- 
ciples governing them is violated. 

2. Should^'stipulate the' functions (delegated responsi' 
bilities as per Charter) and the correlative 
delegated authority of the S.G.A. 

3. Should stipulate that the top governing body of 
the S.G.A. is to be known as the Executive 
Council, and should further stipulate that all 
official dealings with the University Administra- 
tion must be conducted through this body. 

4. Should stipulate the nature of the student 
representation on the Executive Council, and the 
procedure for selecting these representatives. 

a. Among other things, this might well include 
the stipulation that all students seeking 
election or appointment to any post on this 
body must first satisfactorily pass a test 
based on the principles of student govern' 
In this regard, should also stipulate the method 
for recalling these representatives if necessary. 

5. Should stipulate that the Executive Council is to 
charter all subsidiary student governing bodies, 
the method by which all such bodies are to be 
created, and further stipulate that no group may 
function in the name of the S.G.A. unless it is so 
chartered and its charter in good standing. 

6. Should stipulate that each such charter granted 
shall stipulate: 

a. The general function or functions of student 
government, and the correlative authority, 
delegated to the subsidiary body in question 
by the Executive Council. All such delega- 
tions must be within the limits of those 
delegated in the Charter to the S.G.A. 
through the Executive Council. All dis' 

puted jquestions of interpretation are to be 
referred to the Court, with briefs presented 
by both sides to the controversy. 

b. The general nature of the student and 
faculty representation on the subsidiary 
body in question; the general procedure for 
selecting these student representatives, and 
for recalling them from office if necessary, 
and the Administration's method for re- 
moving faculty advisors. 

C. Key principles to be lived up to both in 
letter and in spirit, and further stipulate 
that if and when the Court judges any of 
these principles to have been violated the 
Executive Council may retract the func' 
tion(s) and authority in question. 

d. That the Bylaws of the body be in harmony 
with (a), (b) and (c) above, but further 
stipulate that each body (Executive Council 
included) is free to make its own Bylaws 
within these limits. 

7. Should stipulate the method by which the student 
representatives on the Faculty Student Court 
shall be selected, and the qualifications which 
each shall possess: 

a. The idea of a qualifying test based on (1) 
the principles of campus living; (2) the 
authority, functions and proper procedure 
of the Court would seem to be a good one. 

8. Should stipulate the method by which the S.G.A. 
Constitution may be amended. 

C. Bylaws To S.G.A. Constitution: 

1. Should stipulate all subsidiary student governing 

-i 14 1" 

bodies to be chartered by the Executive Council 
as of 1942-1943. 

These should represent all functional 

2. Should stipulate as many as are necessary of the 
minutes connected with the conduct of Executive 
Council, and of all 1942-1943 subsidiary governing 

On August 14, members of the Seminar voted not to 
release any more news on its individual steps until a com- 
plete suggestion could be presented. It was felt that 
piece-meal information on impending plans might often 
give the wrong impression and create opposition to the 
work of the group. 

Meanwhile, the Seminar is engaged in working out a 
better system of representation for the student body and 
in formulating details for reorganization of the method of 
subsidiary governing under the S.G.A., in accordance with 
the nine key principles. When the completed document is 
ready, it will be submitted to the vote of the entire student 
body. At present, Maryland is the only college on the 
East Coast engaged in such a project. 


To coordinate the war effort of Maryland's student 
body, the Student Government Association last year set 
up the Student Defense Council. This summer, the group 
was completely reorganized into the Student Victory 
Council, under the leadership of Bill Krehnbrink, to work 
in closer cooperation with a similar faculty committee, thus 
binding all of the campus war effort into one driving force. 

During the summer semester, the Victory Council was 
active in sponsoring a Nutrition Drive, which was featured 

'1 15 }' 

by a novel "Clean Your Plate" week. This fall, the Council 
plans to bring a mobile Red Cress Unit to the campus as 
the focal point of a mass Blood Donation drive.

The Daydodgers' League is a branch of the Student 
Government Association and is organized to handle the 
problems of those students who live at home. The League 
hopes to be able to center interest in campus activities so 
the Daydodgers may derive benefits from coll. ge life other- 
wise reserved for resident students.

"Hail, Alma Mater 
Hail 10 thee Maryland 
Steadfast m loyalty 
For thee we stand.'' 

In these words are echoed the sentiments of every student 
of the University of Maryland, past, present, and future. 
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 improve' 
ments 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. 
Rapidly 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 

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 Land 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 
University of Maryland, 




Dr. Harry C. Byrd 

To new students I extend a cordial welcome. You have 
the honor of being among the early ones to enroll under 
the new accelerated program, and you will be rewarded for 
your foresight and determination by being able to complete 


your University course in more than a year less than the 
normal time. The Nation urgently needs trained men and 
women, and you will thus win for yourselves the opportU' 
nity to fit yourselves for places of responsibility in one of 
the armed services, or in industry, much earlier than other- 
wise would be possible. 

Because of the fact that our Nation is at war you will 
find conditions a little different than during normal times. 
The emphasis will be on serious work for all students and 
rigorous physical development. You will find your teachers 
anxious to give you the best possible instruction, and you 
will find the administrative authorities eager to assist you 
with any problems you may have. Please feel free to call 
upon any of us at any time. 

We are glad, also, to w-elcome back to the campus the old 
students, and to all students, new and old alike, we extend 
good wishes for a happy and successful year. The best 
advice I can offer to any of you is to do each day's work 
on time and do it well. If this simple rule is followed, you 
will find yourselves making steady progress. No football 
game ever was won on the Saturday on which it was played. 
The hard work of the previous weeks of practice always is 
the greatest factor in victory. Let us all pull together to 
make this the best year the University has ever known. 





Dean Adele H. Stamp 

To you who are coming to our Campus during this 
critical period, a hearty welcome. You come to us during 
the greatest conflict the world has ever known. Democracy 
is at stake, and daily young men, your countrymen, are 
giving their lives that we may continue to be a free people. 
No sacrifice is too great and I know that you as young 
college men and women will willingly and gladly make any 
sacrifice that is asked of you. 

You come to college during a grave period. Trained 
leaders are needed as never before not only with the war 
effort but to help in making the peace so that this great 
tragedy shall not happen again and that those of your 
generation "shall not have died in vain". Make use of the 
opportunities which a college education gives you. 

\ c»o Y Dean of Women. 


James H. Reid 

It is always a privilege to welcome the new students as 
well as returning upperclassmen to this campus, and we 
look forward with real pleasure to association with you. 

We hope that as you enter the University for the first 
time, you will feel that Maryland is your new home; it is 
your University and you are a part of it. 

Your responsibilities are greater than have been those 
of any other college group. The problems and the way of 
life in the coming years will be different and to solve those 
problems, clear, logical thinking is essential. 

It is my sincere desire that all of you, both freshmen and 
upperclassmen, will feel free at all times to call at my office 
and discuss any problems that you may have.

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 organ- 
ized 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 faculty members who have a 
real interest in the student body and who are willing to give 
part of their time to work with the different organizations. 

The Student Life Committee urges the students to take 
part in the extra-curricular activities on the campus. There 
are numerous clubs, music groups, dramatics, intramural 
sports, dancing clubs, and publications on which a student 
may work and better himself for future years.

The Rossborough Club was founded in 1891 with thirty 
members, and today its membership boasts more than six 

hundred. The name is derived from the Rossborough Inn, 
the oldest building on the campus, and a social center in the 
early 1800's. 

Five dances are held annually, featuring the ''name" 
bands of the country. Last year the members danced to 
such nationally famous bands as Tommy Reynolds, Bobby 
Byrne, Al Donahue, Mai Hallet and Woody Herman. 

Membership in the Rossborough Club is open to all 
Maryland men. The number of tickets are limited and 
should be secured at the first possible opportunity.

The Footlight Club holds tryouts early every fall for 
new students who display a flair for drama. If a student is 
interested in play production, he may be elected a Foot- 
lighter by taking a part in the play or by working on stage 
crews and earning his admittance through a point system. 

Last year, under the direction of Dr. Charles B. Hale, 
E. Parker Dupler, and WiUiam McCoUum, the thespians 
presented the following plays: "Ladies in Retirement", 
"No Time for Comedy", "Hedda Gabler" and 'The Male 
Animal" and, during the summer semester, "Out of the 
Frying Pan". The tentative plays for this year are: "Mr. 
and Mrs. North", "Winterset", "Private Lives", and 
"Arsenic and Old Lace" under the same direction as 
mentioned above. The neophytes will present an evening 
of one-act plays directed by club members. 

Three of the four plays each year are free to students 
who have paid their activity fee and one is a "pay" play to 
raise funds for the organization.

Perhaps one of the most important things that a student 
has to do is to adjust himself to college life. Those students 
who live away from the campus are helped to do this 
through the Daydodgers Club. 

The club holds one activity a month, including straw 
rides, picnics, beach parties, informal dances and an annual 
spring formal which proved to be one of the highlights of 
the campus social season. 

Besides the social side, it takes a very active part in 
promoting a more representative form of student govern' 
ment on the campus and forms a natural outlet for the 
voices of the Daydodgers on current campus activities and 

This year the club is sponsoring a transportation exchange 
committee to help students go to and from school. Last 
year it sponsored Maryland's first book cooperative.

entertained the soldiers at Fort Meade, as well as thousands 
on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

The University maintains a Faculty Committee on 
Religious Affairs and Social Service, which, in cooperation 
with the Student Religious Activities Council, undertakes 
to direct the religious interests of the student body on an 
inter-denominational basis. 

Monthly vesper services are held and every effort is 
made to conduct these services on a plane of practical 
and inspirational religious usefulness. Representatives of 
all denominations are invited to participate in the services 
and guest speakers are drawn from as many religious 
affiliations as possible. 

During the past year, a "Spiritual Emphasis Week" was 
sponsored by the Faculty-Student Committee and it is 
expected that this project will become an established 
feature of the religious program of the University. Organiza' 
tion of the Student Religious Activities Council, combining 
the efforts of all Protestant, Catholic and Jewish campus 
groups, was undertaken following the "Spiritual Emphasis

Last year the Baptist Student Union under the able 
guidance of its area director, Howard Rees, and its Presi- 
dents, Bartlett Dorr, who enUsted in the Army at Christ- 
mas, and Stewart Baker, was a very active group on campus. 

Besides the regular weekly Thursday evening Bible 
Study Group, a 12:10 P. M. prayer meditation was held 
daily, meeting just before the luncheon hour, and providing 
a means of daily inspiration for Baptist students as well as 
for students of other denominations who attended. 

To the incoming Baptist freshmen the club extends its 
warmest welcome and a desire to be of any assistance

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

Certain social functions in which these fraternities 
participate are planned and supervised by the Council. The 
Interfraternity Ball is one of the year's social highlights. 
In addition, the group sponsors interfraternity sports 
throughout the year. Tournaments are held in track, 
basketball, softball, and touch football, and the winning 
fraternities receive awards. 

Each year the Council offers a cup to that fraternity 
which excels in extracurricular activities which was won 
last year by Kappa Alpha. 

This summer, the Interfraternity Council continued to 
function as usual. Under their supervision, 150 men were 
pledged by the 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 

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 

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 bac}{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 }{eeping 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 }{now the financial setup 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 mal{e a fraternity or not, but on the initiative and per sever' 
ance you show in either situation. Some men are actually 
made b); 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 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-four national 
fraternities 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 in conjunction with the Conference itself. It pubHshes 
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 
writing the following criteria in order further to advance 
cooperation between fraternities and educational institU' 
tions. The statement was subsequently approved 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 encour- 
age the most complete personal development of its mem- 
bers, intellectual, physical and social. Therefore, we 

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 responsibiUty 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 achievement. 

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

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 cooperation 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 cooperation effective. 




1. Classification of Terms: RUSHING is construed to 
mean the process of fraternity men contacting prospec' 
tive members and mingling with them or issuing 
invitations to them or entertaining them with a view 


to trying to select new men to whom they will issue 
invitations to join the fraternity. 

BIDS are construed to mean invitations to join 
a fraternity. Acceptance of a bid does not commit a 
man to joining the fraternity but he must not join 
another unless he breaks his pledge. If a man accepts 
a bid and later breaks his pledge, he must wait two 
semesters before any other fraternity may pledge him. 

PLEDGE is a student who has accepted a bid 
and proceeds on a program to meet all the members 
and know them and to prove his worth as a prospective 
member until he is voted into membership by the 

All between semester rushing will cease on the first 
day of freshman registration, October 8th, at 8 A. M. 
A silence period, during which no rushing is permitted 
will continue from October 8th until Monday, 
October 19th, at 8 A. M. New freshmen may be met, 
but not rushed in any sense of the word. 
No new freshman not a resident of a fraternity house 
may be permitted to remain in that fraternity house 
after 7:30 P. M. during the rushing period, on Monday 
thi-ough Thursday of either week. 
No fraternity shall either directly or indirectly cause 
any student to commit himself in favor of or against 
any fraternity prior to pledge day of his first semester 
at this institution. 

No fraternity shall initiate any student unless he shall 
have passed at least twelve credit hours at this 

No fraternity shall initiate any student until he shall 
have passed at least fifteen credit units in high school. 
New freshmen who are graduates of the Baltimore 
Polytechnic Institute "A" Course are considered 


9. Rushing will terminate on Sunday, November 1st, at 
3:00 P. M. On this date all fraternities must turn in 
their bids to the Interfraternity Council before 
9:00 P. M. 

10. A period of absolute silence shall reign from 3 :00 P. M. 
Sunday until 5:00 P. M. Monday, November 2nd, 
which is formal pledge day. All new freshmen and any 
other students who have been rushed should look in 
their post office box for a notice that they have received 
a bid or bids. If they receive such a notice, they 
should take it to the Student Government Association 
Lounge where the bids will be distributed from 
10:00 A. M. to 5:00 P. M. If the rushee accepts a bid 
he should report that evening to the house of his choice 
for dinner. 

11. On Friday, October 23rd, each fraternity will hold a 
dance at its house. These dances shall be open rotary 
dances. No invitation is necessary for attendance, and 
all new freshmen interested in fraternities should 
spend some of the evening at each fraternity in which 
they are interested. These dances will be radio 

12. Each fraternity is limited to one orchestra dance, to be 
held Friday or Saturday of the second weekend.

The Panhellenic Council is composed of three representa' 
tives from each recognized sorority on campus. Officers are 
rotated among the sororities according to their founding 
dates on campus. Meetings are held once a month at the 
various sorority houses. After the meetings there is held 
an informal gathering at which refreshments are served and 
common topics of mutual interest to members are discussed. 

Rushing will take place later in the semester. Actual 
dates and rush rules will be published in the Diamondbac\. 
During rushing, PanHel acts as a mediator and court in the 
event of violation of the rushing regulations. Often 
offenders are subjected to specific penalties. 

Each year, PanHel sponsors a progressive dinner dance. 
Each sorority provides a different course of the dinner, 
which enables all the sorority girls to become better 
acquainted with one another. Following the dinner, 
couples travel back and forth between the houses to enjoy 
the music and dancing.

One of the most important in- 
fluences in the hfe and activity of 
every male student at the University 
of Maryland, and one which may 
well decide his eventual career, is 
the Reserve Officers' Training Corps. 

Since 1916, the War Department has maintained at the 
University, a senior Infantry unit to w^hich, for every year 
since its beginning, it has awarded the coveted rating of 
''generally excellent''. This is signified by a blue star worn 
on the left sleeve of every Maryland cadet. Last semester, 
the Government introduced a Signal Corps unit which 
already promises to rival the achievements of its older 
"brother", the Infantry. 

From now on, all students who are pursuing courses in 
electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied 
physics will generally be assigned to the Signal unit, and 
all others to the Infantry. During the summer, the Signal 
Corps comprised only one company which, however, will 
probably be expanded this semester. 

The primary mission of the ROTC is the production of 
second lieutenants for combat duty. The course is divided 
into two sections: the basic course and the advanced 
course. Previous to this semester, it was required of every 
physicallyfit male student that he complete at least two 
years, or four semesters of ROTC before he was eligible to 

receive his academic diploma. This was the basic course. 
A member of this course was not a member of the Army 
and, at the end of his required training, he was under no 
obHgation to serve in any of the armed forces. 

A student who wished to enter the advanced course, 
leading to a commission as second lieutenant in the Officers' 
Reserve Corps, was required to submit a written applica- 
tion at the end of his fourth semester of ROTC. This had 
to be accompanied by the recommendation of the dean of 
his college and the professor of Military Science and 
Tactics, as well as the approval of the President of the 

But the exigencies of war have changed, among other 
things, the setup of the local Military Department. Effec- 
tive this semester, every man in school who can otherwise 
qualify must take four years of military training. Those 
who do not apply or are not accepted for Advanced ROTC 
will receive the same instruction as those under contract to 
the Army. At the completion of the course, they may 
become eligible for a commission, depending on their 

Selections for advanced ROTC are made every semester 
by a special board composed of the commissioned officers of 
the local Military Department. Once accepted into the 
advanced course, a student must sign a contract with the 
U. S. Army. This removes him from any chance of being 
drafted, as long as he satisfies all requirements. Students 
taking the same instruction without benefit of contract 
have no similar protection. Members of the advanced 
course are required to purchase their own uniforms, for 
which they receive a small allowance. In addition, they 
are paid twenty-five cents a day from the time they are 
accepted until they enter the Army. 

Previous to the war, it was the custom for students in 
the advanced course to attend summer camp at Fort Meade 


during the summer between their junior and senior years. 
The three'semester plan, of course, has made this impossible. 
Advanced students are now required to spend three months 
in Officers' Training School after graduation. Whereas 
they formerly became second lieutenants upon graduation 
from the University, their commissions are now withheld 
pending their performance in this additional training period. 

For the first four semesters, two drill periods and one 
class period a week are devoted to military instruction. 
For the last four semesters, three class periods and two drill 
periods are the weekly requisites. Drill is held every 
Tuesday and Thursday afternoon and lasts for two hours. 

Under the direction of Captain George M. Bohler, a 
supplementary program in physical education is conducted 
for all ROTC students Monday and Wednesday afternoons 
for periods of one hour each. During this time, students 
may take mass calisthenics, negotiate the Obstacle Course 
for time, practice tumbling, work out on the Gym apparatus, 
play touch football, basketball, or soccer. This fall there 
will also be ROTC company tackle football teams. 

Under ordinary conditions, the War Department supplies 
the University with sufficient uniforras and equipment to 
give the student a practical working knowledge of military 
materials and methods. Last June, however, the Army 
recalled all rifles except a few for instructional purposes 
from high school and college units for combat purposes, 
and it is unlikely that they will be replaced in the immediate 

Students not under contract who take the last four 
semesters of military training will probably be required to 
wear basic uniforms, because of the complications of 
priorities. This applies to junior students who were called 
back into the ROTC this fall. 

The offices of the local Military Department are located 
on the f rst and second floors of the Gym' Armory. Text 

assignments, uniform of the day, and changes in regulations 
or appointments are announced on the ROTC bulletin 
board located on the East side of the Armory. You should 
watch this board! 

The following commissioned officers of the United States 
Army are attached to the local Military Department. You 
should know their names and, if you plan to apply for 
advanced ROTC, it is advisable to become personally 
acquainted with most of them : 

Colonel Robert E. Wysor — Professor of Military 

Science and Tactics. 

Lt. Colonel Harland C. Griswold — Executive Officer, 

Coach of Varsity Rifle Team. 

Captain George M. Bohler — Director of the ROTC 

Physical Education Program. 

Captain Ralph I. Williams — Senior Class, adviser to 

Scabbard and Blade (advanced ROTC honorary). 

Captain Edward F. Quinn, Jr. — Junior Class, adviser 

to Pershing Rifles (basic ROTC honorary). 

Lt. James V. Barker — Signal Corps. 

Lt. James Pinkerton — Signal Corps.

Any freshman or sophomore student taking ROTC is 
ehgible to become a candidate for membership. After drill' 
ing for several weeks he will be pledged if he attains the 
standards prescribed by the officers. During the summer 
session Pershing Rifles accepted only 27 of 65 applicants to 
leave room in the company for new students in the fall. 
Watch the ROTC bulletin board for announcements 
concerning Pershing Rifles. 

The company drills twice a week, and after the first 
several weeks devotes one of the drill periods to practical 
w^ork in military training.

collegiate Athletic Conference which includes Washington 
and Lee, William and Mary, VMI, VPI, North Carolina, 
North Carolina State, Duke, South Carolina, Richmond, 
Clemson, The Citadel, Davidson, Furman, Wake Forest, 
and George Washington. 

Included in the Southern Conference are the states of 
Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and 
the District of Columbia. The Conference is composed of 
not more than sixteen members and the members are entitled 
to one vote each. 

Its purpose is to promote intercollegiate athletics in every 
form, and to regulate them by wise and prudent measures 
in order that they may improve the pysical condition, 
strengthen the moral fiber of students, and form a constitU' 
ent 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 Clark D. Shaughnessy, 
Chairman; Dr. Ernest Cory, Dr. Levin Broughton, Dr. 
William B. Kemp, and Col. Robert E. Wysor. 

For the rules of eligibility for intercollegiate athletics of 
the Southern Conference, consult your copy of the Academ' 
ic Regulations.

The main function of the Women's Recreation Associa' 
tion is to sponsor intramural sports and activities among 
Maryland coeds. In the past, contests with other universi' 
ties in basketball and hockey have been held. 

Also a social organization, WRA promotes swimming 
parties, skating parties, treasure hunts, overnight hikes, 
and an annual barn dance. All undergraduate coeds and 
not just Physical Education majors, are members.

One of the oldest traditions at the University of Mary 
land, which time and war have failed to efface, is the 
"ratting" of incoming freshmen by the Sophomore Class. 

As "rats", you will be called upon in the weeks that 
follow to perform many tasks which at times may seem silly 
or unreasonable: However, we hope that you will accept 
these demands in the proper spirit — the spirit in which 
they are made. Remember that, although you have been 
admitted to the University, you must still prove your worth 
to us. 

You have doubtless been impressed by the prominence 
of posters telling you to "Read, Fear, Obey the Ten 
Commandments." Again, a word of advice. These placards 
have not been distributed in an effort to beautify our 
campus. They have a constructive purpose. Read them! 
Practice what they preach! 

Above all, get off on the right foot by practicing the 
"hello" habit whenever possible. This is one of our most 
cherished traditions, and it can be a big help to you in 
meeting future fraternity brothers and sorority sisters 
Help to keep Maryland a friendly University. 

That you obey the Ten Commandments and their 
associated bylaws is of concern to everyone who was once 
a freshman at Maryland. It is up to you to identify your- 
selves as loyal Maryland men by Hving up to these estab- 
lished customs. If you do not, the Sophomore Class stands 

^ 103 |> 

ready to enforce them, and a special "Ratting Court" has 
been established to handle individual cases. 

It is hoped, however, that any "enforcement''' will be 
unnecessary and that you will continue the tradition of 
previous freshmen classes. Start off the year right! Grasp 
the Maryland spirit and pay strict obedience to these rules: 


1 . Memorize the Ten Commandments and all bylaws. 

2. Wear rat hat, nameplate, and M'tie at all times. 

3. Get the "hello'' habit. (Maryland is a friendly 

4- Show proper respect for upperclassmen and obey 
all reasonable requests. 

5. Attend all campus activities, social as well as 

6. Learn Maryland cheers and songs. (Get the Mary- 
land spirit!) 

7. Remain in your room every week night from 8:30 
to 11:30 unless otherwise instructed. 

8. Do not smoke on campus, except in your room or 
in the Student Lounge. 

9. Do not "cut" campus. (You kill 999 blades of grass 
with each step.) 

10. Don't wear large prep or high school insignia. (You 
can't live on your past here.) 


1. Freshmen must carry the M'Book at all times. 

2. Freshmen may not walk for any reason w-hatsoever 
on the Upperclassmen's Walk which connects Arts 

<{ 104 :<■ 

and Sciences with the Administration Building, nor 
upon the adjoining grass. 

3. Freshmen in the Dining Hall may not sit at the ends 
of rectangular tables. 

4. Freshmen using the Arts and Sciences Building must 
enter and leave by the front (north) entrances, first 
floor and basement. 

5. Freshmen entering and leaving the Engineering 
Building must use the large East Entrance. 

6. Freshmen must not loiter more than two minutes on 
the Library steps. 

7. All Freshmen Girls will wear their hair in pigtails. 

— The Sophomore Class. 


Freshmen boys are known as ''rats" and their coed 
classmates as ''rabbits". 

The "hello" habit, one of our most important traditions, 
has built up Maryland's reputation as a friendly University. 
Help keep it going, and remember — -it is a sure way to meet 
future fraternity and sorority companions. 

The Upperclassmen's Walk, running between the Arts 
and Sciences and Administration buildings, is for upper- 
classmen only. Walk on it at your own risk. 

This MSoo}{ is your official "Bible". Carry it with you 
at all times, just in case some Sophomore should ask you 
for it. 

All "rabbits" must wear their hair in pigtails. 

Freshmen entering and leaving the Engineering Building 
are restricted to the East Entrance. 

«{ 105 y 

Those using the Arts and Sciences Building must go 
around to the North side, where two entrances, first floor 
and basement, are available. 

The Library is a place to study, not to make dates. 
Furthermore, noisy congregation on the front steps disturbs 
those inside. For this reason, you must not loiter more than 
two minutes on these steps. 

"Cutting" campus is dangerous (if you get caught) and 
destructive. Use the walks and save those 999 blades of 

Freshmen must not smoke on campus, except in their 
rooms or in the Student Lounge. 

In the Dining Hall, you must not sit at the ends of the 
rectangular tables. These places are traditionally reserved 
for upperclassmen. 

You will make many friends at the Freshman Mixer 
dance, usually held after the first week of school. 

In addition to the nightly ratting, the Sophomore Class 
will pick one night out of the semester to hold a 'Trayer 
for Rain." If you don't know what this is, just ask one of 
last semester's freshmen. 

Your chance for revenge will come at the big Tug'of'War 
with the Sophomores over Paint Branch. If you win, 
ratting will be discontinued immediately. If you lose, 
don't say we didn't warn you. 

'{ 106 


Learn the songs and cheers of your school. Show your 
school spirit by cooperating with your cheer leaders and 
attending all football games and other athletic events and 
yelling your lungs out.

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. 


Sons 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 the land. 


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!

Drink to the Terrapin, 

All stout'hearted men. 

We have no fear of Hell 

For we're loyal sons and fellows 

Drink to the Terrapin; 

May God bless her sons. 

When the drink is in the cup, 

Bottoms up! Bottoms up! 

To Maryland.

R'O'T'C, march along; 

Shout the battle cry. 

As we march, we sing a song 

Of the men who do or die. 

Onward goes our regiment. 

Flying colors bright. 

We'll win again, dear Maryland. 

We'll fight with all our might. 



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 brightest dreams, 

Blest giver of life's precious things. 

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