Today marks for you, the class of 1950, the 
first step in a concerted effort to prepare your- 
selves for a future of security through learning. 
As freshmen that should be more aware of the 
need for intelligent leadership and conscientious 
study, you have chosen wisely a great and growing 
university which offers the inquiring mind rich 
experiences in purposeful living which give 
meaning and direction to the years that follow 
college life. 

With scholarship as a prime requisite for 
graduation, the university supplements academic 
studies with many opportunities in extra-curri- 
cular activity which benefit and equip one for 
personal success and national usefulness. 

You may feel complimented that the university 
has written and published this handbook for you, 
and you alone, as a concise and comprehensive 
picture of the opportunities for you in extra- 
curricular life. Once you have established your- 
selves scholastically, the activities listed in this 
guide for freshmen are yours to share and partici- 
pate in for the next four years. 

From this day forward, your future success 
and happiness will depend to a great extent on 
your initiative and ability to surmount the many 
obstacles which you will encounter before gradu- 
ation. This does not mean that you must meet 
them alone, for as upperclassmen we offer you 
our friendship and aid when and wherever your 
needs are greatest.

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

In these v/ords are echoed the sentiments of every 
student of the University of Maryland . . . from the 
beginning of the University's history in 1807 to you of the 
class of 1950. 

When the College of Medicine was founded in 1807 in 
the City of Baltimore the history of the University began. 
The Law School was added in 1823, the School of Den- 
tistry in 1882, the School of Nursing in 1889, and the 
College of Pharmacy in 1904. 

Meanwhile, in 1856, the Maryland Agricultural College 
was chartered, and became the second agriculture college 
in the western hemisphere. This College, in 1862, became 
a semi-state institution with the passage of the Land 
Grant Act by the United States Congress. 

The next milestone in the formation of the present 
University was in 1920 when the Maryland Legislature 
passed legislation combining the State College and the 
University of Maryland under the latter name. Thus is 
the chronological history of our University. 

But history is more than dates and facts ... it is found 
in traditions that have been built during those 140 years. 

8 



Among these are Testudo, the Terp, proudly guarding 
the coliseum; the tunnel on the library green . . . ask your 
date about that tradition; the Rossborough Inn, symbol of 
a proud history; the Hello Habit . . . Maryland is a 
friendly school; the annual freshman-sophomore tug-of- 
war across Paint Branch . . . when the water is cold in 
late fall; Homecoming, old grads get together and remi- 
nisce; May Day, with its queen, maypoles, and Mortar 
Board tappings; the many annual dances now being re- 
vived . . . the Calvert Cotillion, the Military Ball, the Inter- 
fraternity Ball, and the class proms; the dorms, holding 
the memories of those who have passed before you; pub- 
lications, the Diamondback on Fridays, the Old Line once 
a month, and the Terrapin every spring. These are Mary- 
land traditions , . . long standing, grown strong through 
the years, and respected by all Maryland men and women. 

History, with its accompanying traditions, has built 
a spirit that is known and felt only by those who come to 
Maryland and become a part of that history and tradi- 
tion. When you feel that spirit you have become a true 
''Old Liner" . . . it's a good feeling, freshman!

P^veUde^'6. Me44^e 



In publishing this little booklet, the older 
students of the University are extending to 
you a hearty welcome. It is thus made known 
to you that all members of the Faculty, all 
students of the University, all Administrative 
officers are your friends, and stand ready to 
help you. 

Sometimes the impression of a University 
is that it is a country club, and that students 
do little more than go to athletic contests, 
attend movies, dances, and so on. Do not be 
mislead by such outward manifestations. Uni- 
versity life is hard, a dull routine in which 
men and women work long hours to achieve 
their educational ambitions. 

Remember, though, that no man or woman 
has ever achieved anything, anytime, anywhere 
without hard work. The faculty are your 
friends, and wish to help you, but in the last 
analysis you will not succeed except by your 
own efforts. I know that you have come to the 
University with high ambition and noble re- 
solve, and that by diligence you will translate 
these into actual achievements. 

My office door is always open, and I look 
forward to greeting you personally. 



Sincerely, 



President

A/eiu Stidxie^U 

It is a pleasure to 
welcome the students 
of the University of 
Maryland and especi- 
ally the new students. 

Reconstruction of- 
fers a real challenge 
to each American. It 
is going to be an in- 
teresting and exacting 
period. Cooperation 
with your fellow stu- 
dents, the SGA, and 
faculty will help solve 
the problem on our 
campus. Allocate your 
time so that you 
have a well-rounded 
plan to train yourself 
mentally, morally, and 
physically. 

I would be pleased 
to have you visit with 
me for a sociable chat 
or to discuss your per- 
sonal or general stu- 
dent problems. 



Qe4ju^4f ^fXflUif 



A hearty greeting to all 
new students enrolling at the 
University this fall . . . 
whether recent high school 
graduates or returned veter- 
ans. We hope the years spent 
on our campus will be happy, 
worthwhile ones. 

Yours is a grave responsi- 
bility in these troubled years. 
If we are to have a lasting 
peace we must have coop- 
eration and understanding 
among all nations. We hope 
that the University of Mary- 
land will offer those experi- 
ences in learning to get along 
with different kinds of peo- 
ple which all of us need if we 
are to take our place as 
world citizens. 

May the learning be ac- 
complished with real joy and 
enthusiasm. 

Adele <M^. Stamp. 

Dean of Women

^i4^nci4J04444iXf, OJf tU^ B. Q. A. 

The Student Government Association of the University 
of Maryland is the official representative body of the under- 
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 officer on the campus, is elected in the spring, along 
with 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 ques- 
tions and formulates policy; the Men's and Women's 
Leagues decide on, and enforce, all campus regulations; 
and the entire student body who may attend meetings and 
enter into the discussions. 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 more 
often. 

Student activities are controlled by the 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 
money is prorated to the various activities, and the pay- 
ment of this fee entitles a student to all the publications, 
tickets to dramatic and operatic performances, and to 
most student dances. Class dues are also included in this 
fee. 

Records of each organization, which are always open for 
inspection, are kept by the administration. Furthermore, 
each organizi-ition 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 DIAMONDBACK prints a full 
statement of the income and expenses of each group.

Dormitory Council R e pr e seritativ e Harry Dow 

The Men's League was reactivated in the winter of 1946 
by an order of the Executive Council of the Student 
Government Association. 

The purpose of the Men's League is to concern itself 
with all problems relating to the men students; to pro- 
mulgate projects for the improvement of campus life; 
and to establish ideals, customs, and rules for the men 
and administer them in cooperation with the Dean of 
Men. 

The League is divided into two sections : the Executive 
Council and the Dormitory Council. The Executive Coun- 
cil is made up of one representative from each class, one 
representative from the Interfraternity Council, and one 
elected member from the Dormitory Council. The Execu- 
tive Council is headed by the League President. A Re- 
cording Secretary is elected from these members. 

The Dormitory Council is made up of one representative 
from each dormitory or section. They elect a member from 
their group and he sits in the Executive Council. The 
Dormitory Council shall handle all dormitory students' 
problems and discipline. The Vice-President of the Men's 
League shall assist in the formation and composition of 
the Dormitory Council.

vals to consider matters brought to its attention by 
the Dean of Men or his representatives or by mem- 
bers of the League itself.

working closely with the Assistant Dean of Men or

vals to consider matters brought to its attention by

Every university has a duty to its resident women 
students. Rules and procedure must be set up under which 
an orderly and healthy social life may be pursued with a 
minimum of regulation. Frequently this function of uni- 
versity administration is a source of unending contention 
and violation. However the women students of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland are indeed fortunate. Women's League 
is a democratic, self-governing organization with repre- 
sentation from each house for women students on or near 
campus. Daydodger girls interested in all Women's 
League decisions other than those regarding campus resi- 
dence are also a part of its organization. The officers of 
the league are elected by the women students of the 
University, and any woman student is privileged to attend 
league meetings. 

Aside from the regular activities of making and enforc- 
ing rules, assisting the dormitory housemothers and con- 
ducting house meetings, the league, in conjunction with 
the women of the Junior Class, sponsors the annual May 
Day celebration. 

The league holds its business meeting once each week 
at which subjects vital to the women of the campus are 
handled. Rules violations judgments, plans for social cal- 
endars, consultations with the Dean of Women's office, 
and plans for various campus charity drives represent 
typical business of the organization. 

In conjunction with the Dean of Women, the league 
plays a prime role in the interpretation of canipus rules 
and their application.

Supplying the connecting link between the student body 
and the University administration is the Student Life 
Committee. This committee, appointed by the President, 
is composed of faculty members who are actively inter- 
ested in student affairs. In close touch with all activi- 
ties, the committee acts in an advisory capacity and 
attempts to improve any unsatisfactory conditions that 
may exist. 

Many and varied are the functions of the Student 
Life Committee. During freshman orientation week the 
committee sponsors the Freshman Mixer, a dance to ac- 
quaint the new students with each other. In order that the 
new students may meet the officers of the many clubs 
and organizations on campus, the Student Government is 
assisted in organizing a convocation in which the presi- 
dents and chairman of all organizations are introduced. 
The committee also assists Miss Rosalie Leslie, social 
director, in the management of social affairs and the pro- 
motion of a full year social program for the entire 
campus. 

All organizations must be recognized by the Student 
Life Committee in order to exist and function at the 
University. In its approval procedure of campus or- 
ganizations, the committee encourages clubs that will not 
be in competition with each other. 

Dr. Charles E. White of the Chemistry Department is 
chairman of the committee. Other members of the com- 
mittee are: Prof. Russel Allen, Dr. Oliver Baker, Dr. 
Rachel Benton, Prof. Barnett, Dr. Dudley Dillard, Dr. 
Ray Ehrensberger, Dean Geary Eppley, Dr. Wolcott 
Etienne, Col. H. C. Griswold, Dr. Susan Harman, Prof. 
Charles Kramen, Dr. Fred Leinbach, Dr. Peter Lejins, 
Miss Rosalie Leslie, Dr. Norman Phillips, Miss Alma 
Preinkert, Prof. James H. Reid, Dean Adele Stamp.

Paralleled with the importance of studies, clubs offer to 
students diversion, interest, and friendship which m the 
long run create the more pleasant memories of college 
life. 

For every hobby or physical activity there is a club it 
there are enough students interested in forming one. ihe 
only requirements for affiliation with a social club are 
personal interest and willingness to work for the group 
you join plus a small amount of dues to cover costs. 

On the following pages there are many clubs listed 
v/hich are organized to meet the interests of the majority 
of students. 

The friendships alone which you will form through 
any of these clubs warrant membership in them.

UNIVERSITY THEATRE 

THEATRE STAFF 

Dr. Ray Ehrensberger Dr. Edgar Wood 

Dr. Charles Neimeyer Lyle Mayer 

E. Parker Dupler Orville Larson 

The University Theatre is a comparatively new organi- 
zation at the University of Maryland. It was formally 
organized in the fall of 1945 by Dr. Ray Ehrensberger, 
head of the Speech Department. This season the Theatre 
Staff, the Footlight Club, and a Student Staff produced 
three highly successful shows. The opening production 
was Noel Cowards' Ely the Spirit, which was performed 
four consecutive nights, from November 14 through No- 
vember 17, 1945. For the second production F. Hugh 
Herbert's delightful hit comedy Kiss and Tell was selected. 
The personnel of the University Theatre decided to stage 
a five night run for this play. It was presented to an 
enthusiastic student and faculty audience from April 2 
through April 6, 1946. The third and final dramatic pre- 
sentation of the season was the fascinating and intriguing 
Angel Street, written by Patrick Hamilton. There was a 
capacity audience for each of the five nights of production. 

The Theatre Staff has planned a tentative produc- 
tion schedule for the 1946-1947 season. They hope to pro- 
duce four or five plays in the University Theatre during 
the entire season. Claudia, The Little Foxes, Yes, My 
Darling Daughter, or any other current Broadway pro- 
ductions that are released for student production, will be 
the possible selections for this season. A period play, 
possibly one by Moliere, will also be presented. 

Tryouts for these productions are announced approxi- 
mately five weeks before play production, and any inter- 
ested student is cordially invited to come out for the 
tryouts.

tic year, into a composite group of students who have 
proved their ability in acting, interpretation, and stage 
technique. Membership in the club is available to those 
students who have demonstrated their ability by appearing 
in University Theatre productions, or who have proved 
their sincere interest by participating in conscientious 
work back-stage. Upon recommendation, a prospective 
member's name is submitted to members of the Speech 
Department staff, who act in the capacity of an advisory 
board for University Theatre productions, in consulta- 
tion with the Executive Committee of the Footlight Club. 
After final approval of both of these groups the newly 
elected members of the Footlight Club are entitled to all 
privileges of membership. 

The Footlight Club undertakes several projects each 
year in connection with the ultimate purpose of the Uni' 
versity Theatre. This purpose is to provide the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Vvith experienced student actors and 
better facilities with which to present a well-rounded 
dramatic schedule each year. Club members also partici- 
pate in the production of the plays. They head the house 
committees and organize the back stage work in coopera- 
tion with the faculty technical advisor. The members, of 
course, are eligible to try-outs for every play produced in

Religious activities on the Maryland campus are co- 
ordinated through the Religious Life Committee consisting 
of both student and faculty representatives. This com- 
mittee is charged with the guidance of campus denomina- 
tional groups. 

The initial activity of the Committee is the annual 
religious life reception open to all new and old students. 
The reception this year will be held Sunday September 22, 
in the recreation hall of Anne Arundel from 6:30 to 9 p. m. 
The traditional playing of Christmas carols from the 
^^ower of Morrill Hall is carried out by the members o± 
the Committee, who also arrange observances of religious 
holidays. 

Currently, the Committee is formulating plans for 
the construction of a University interfaith chapel. These 
plans were presented to Dr. Byrd and the Board of 
Regents and, as a result a committee was appointed by 
this group to determine the needs of the campus which 
the erection of the chapel would attempt to fulfill. Through 
this report it was decided that the chapel, m addition 
to being used for interfaith and baccalaureate services, 
vesper and musical programs, it could also provide offices 
for counseling by the student ministers of each faith, as 
well as become the center for all interdenominational 
religious activities. 

The student religious council which is composed of the 
presidents of the campus religious organizations holds 
meetings when they are deemed necessary and conducts 
the monthly interfaith meetings. 

The faculty committee consists of Rosalie Leslie, chair- 
man; Dr. Charles E. White, Dr. Wesley M Gewehr, Har- 
lan Randall, James H. Reid, Marion Johnson, Edna 
McNaughton, and Arthur Hamilton.

PUBLICATIONS BOARD 

The Publications Board, which is composed of four 
members of the faculty, the editors of the three major 
publications, the president of the Student Government 
Association, and the president of Pi Delta Epsilon, na- 
tional journalism honorary, serve Maryland's publications 
in an advisory capacity. The Board members meet regu- 
larly during the year to pass on new appointments for 
the various publications and to decide matters of policy 
and management. One faculty member of the Board 
serves the publications directly as advisor. 

Faculty members include Prof. James H. Reid who 
serves as chairman; Adele H. Stamp, Dean of Women; 
Dr. Charles E. White of the Chemistry Department, and 
Prof. Cecil R. Ball of the English Department. 



THE TERRAPIN 

Editor-in-Chief Jean Chickering 

Associate Editor Nancy Simmons 

Women's Editor Terry Speaker 

Business Manager Jack Clark 

Sports and Military Editor Fred DeMarr 

Circulation Manager Claudia De La Vergne 

A far cry from the Reveilles and Terra Mariaes which 
appeared in the 1920's and 30's, the Terrapin offers within 
its binding the widest possible coverage of each year of 
college life. Acting as both a pictorial and a written 
record of the year's activities, the Terrapin is awaited 
by the student as one of the highlights of the year. 

Attractively and novelty bound and containing informa- 
tive articles with a variety of photos, the yearbook re- 
quires almost a full year of preparation prior to publica- 
tion. Included are photos of student life on campus, color 
drawings, and many interesting features. 

80 



Like the Diainondhack, the Teri-aphi is financed by the 
Student Government Association which last year appro- 
priated over $11,000 for the publication. 

The Terrapin, of. necessity, has a large and hard- 
working staff. Those interested in yearbook work should 
report to the Terraprn office in the basement of the Admin- 
istration Building. Appointments will be made in the 
same manner as for other publications. 



THE DIAMONDBACK 

Editor-in-Chief Bill McDonald 

(Staff to be appomted) 

This year the student newspaper The Diaynondhack 
goes into its twenty-sixth year of publication. Since 1920, 
the DBK, as it is affectionately nicknamed, has served the 
student body of the University, expressing student thought 
and publicizing student activities, while it also served as 
an outlet for students interested in journalism. 

First appearing as a tabloid and later growing into a bi- 
weekly publication, The Diamondhack was issued once a 
week during the war and last year. The staff plans to 
publish the paper twice weekly as soon as possible. 

Membership on the staff is open to anyone who shows 
interest and some ability in collegiate newspaper work. 
At the beginning cf each semester, incoming students 
who are interested have an opportunity to meet the staff 
and to attend Diamondhack training classes. No previous 
experience is necessary. 

The Diamondhack is sponsored and financed by the 
Student Government Association and is a member of the 
Associated Collegiate Press of the National Scholastic 
Press Association. Work is not restricted to the editorial 
field alone since there are also positions open on the busi- 
ness and advertising staffs. Offices are located in the 
basement of the Administration Building.

Literary Editor Gene Heil 

Humor Editor Sheldon Akers 

Art Editor Art Cosing 

Absent from the campus during the war, the Old Line, 
monthly student humor magazine, reappeared in early 
1946, publishing two issues during the spring semester. 

The 32-page magazine is a medium through which liter- 
ary or art-minded students may express themselves by 
writing or drawing. In the past, the Old Line has pre- 
sented only the *'cream" of student creativeness and this 
year it aims to be "bigger and better than ever." 

Candidates for the staff should report to the Old Line 
office in the basement of the Administration Building. 
Appointments will be made in the same manner as on 
other publications. 

THE "M" BOOK 

Published annually, the M Book is the official hand- 
book for freshmen. In it is found information concerning 
every phase of campus activity and every type of campus 
organization. 

The "Freshman Bible" or M. Book, is designed to 
familiarize new students with the University and its 
workings ; as well as to serve as a guide by which students 
may adjust themselves to college life. 

The M Book statf is chosen at the end of each school 
year. Major positions are editor and business manager.

(Student Officers to he selected) 

In keeping with the University's expansion program, a 
College of Military Science, Physical Education, and Rec- 
reation has been established for the purpose of providing 
greater opportunities for students wishing to major in 
military science and physical activities. The College is 
under the direction of the Military Commandant and the 
Head of the Physical Education Department. 

The basic ROTC course is required of all male students 
attending the University who have not completed basic 
training in the armed forces of the . United States. In 
addition to this, four semesters of physical education are 
required. Students must successfully complete this course 
in order to receive their academic displomas. 

Advanced ROTC is open to students who have completed 
the basic course or its equivalent in the armed forces. 
The applicant must be at least 19 years of age when he be- 
gins the course and must pass a physical and other quali- 
fying examinations. The cadets for this training are then 
selected by a military board from among the applicants 
who have met the other requirements. 

84 



The advanced students serve as officers of the ROTC 
regiment. Upon successful completion of the advanced 
course and upon recommendation of the Commandant and 
the President of the University, an advanced student 
will receive a reserve commission of second lieutenant in 
the Infantry. Commissions in the Signal Corps will be 
awarded to advanced students who major in electrical 
engineering. 

The officers for the ROTC regiment will be appointed 
by the Military Department this Fall. 

Ever since its beginning in 1916 the ROTC unit at Mary- 
land has won the coveted War Department rating of "gen- 
erally excellent." This award is worn by all cadets in 
the form of a blue star on the sleeve of their uniform 
blouses. 

In 1944 the Military Department moved into the New 
Armory which is one of the finest in the country. Besides 
a modern 10 point rifle range and main drill floor, it 
houses the military offices, lecture rooms, and numerous 
military property rooms. The Physical Education Depart- 
ment also maintains offices and locker rooms in the 
armory. 

ROTC BAND 

The ROTC Band is under the direction of Mr. Harold 
Yeager of the Music Department. All members of the 
ROTC who can play a musical instrument are eligible 
for membership and are encouraged to join. The band 
rehearses during military period and an extra scholastic 
credit is given to the members. Martial music for parades 
and special occasions is also furnished by the band. The 
Military Depax-tment plans to enlarge the size of the band 
to its prewar strength.

(This article is jwinted by request of the Interfratenity 

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 v.ise. 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 In- 
terfraternity 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 Con- 
ference and the Educational Advisory Council reduced to 
writing the following criteria in order to advance further 
co-operation between fraternities and educational insti- 
tutions. 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 posi- 
tive contribution to the primary functions of the col- 
leges and universities, and therefore under an obli- 
gation to encourage the most complete personal devel- 
opment of its members, intellectual, physical and so- 
cial. Therefore; we declare: 

1. That the objectives and activities of the fra- 
ternity should be in entire accord with the aims 
and purposes of the instiutions at which it has 
chapters. 

98 



2. That the primary loyalty and responsi- 
bility of a student in his relations with his insti- 
tution are to the institution, and that the associ- 
ation 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 v^'ith good morals and good taste. 

4. That the fraternity should create an atmos- 
phere w^hich will stimulate substantial intellectual 
progress and superior intellectual achievement. 

5. That the fraternity should maintain sani- 
tary, safe and wholesome physical conditions in 
the chapter house. 

6. That the fraternity should inculcate prin- 
ciples of sound business practice both in chapter 
finances and in the business relations of its mem- 
bers. 

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 sug- 
gestions, after further study and investigation, regarding 
practical steps to make this co-operation effective. 



99 



^^uiten^iidiied. 



The aim and dream of many a freshman is to attain 
membership in a j^'reat college 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 Greek letter organizations. 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 in- 
stead of too backward to interest that particular organi- 
zation. 

That many of the potentially fine men have been com- 
pletely buried in their fraternities. 

That men in other fraternities may be worth cultivating 
or keeping as friends. Some of your best friends in the 
Freshman Class will not be in your fraternity. Do not 
lose them. 

That you are entitled to know the financial set up of 
the fraternity that lushes 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 initi- 
ative and perseverance you show in either situation.

The Interfraternity Council was founded in 1926 for the 
purpose of maintaining harmonious relations between the 
University and the fraternities and among the fraterni- 
ties themselves. Supervision of rushing and improvement 
of the fraternity system at Maryland are the Council's 
specific duties. 

Membership on the Council consists of the presidents or 
an elected delegate from each of the twelve fraternities. 

The Council sponsors dances which are recognized as 
campus traditions. One is planned for the Fall term and 
another for the Spring term. Only fraternity members 
and pledges are entitled to attend. 

The Council also sponsors an interfraternity athletic 
program. The Randall Memorial Cup will be awarded to 
the fraternity winning the annual track meet in the spring 
of 1947. Interfraternity scholarship and activities cups 
are also presented each year to the fraternities outstanding 
in these fields of endeavor.

"We, the fraternity undergraduate 
members, stand for good scholarship, 
for guarding of good health, for whole- 
hearted cooperation with our college's 
ideals for student life, for the mainte- 
nance of fine social standards, and for 
the serving, to the best of our ability, 
of our college community. Good college 
citienship as a preparation for good 
citizenship in the larger world of 
alumnae days is the ideal that shall 
guide our chapter activities. 

"We, the fraternity women of Amer- 
ica, stand for preparation for service 
through the character building inspired 
in the close contact and deep friend- 
ship of fraternity life. To us, frater- 
nity life is not the enjoyment of special 
privileges but an opportunity to pre- 
pare for wide and wise human service."

The purpose of the Panhellenic Council is the main- 
tainance of a wholesome sorority spirit and inter-sorority 
relations within the University, to further sound scholar- 
ship and high social standards, and to compile rules gov- 
erning rushing, pledging, and initiation. 

Council membership is composed of two delegates from 
each campus sorority. Meetings are held weekly, although 
the president is privileged to call special sessions at the 
request of any representative. The offices are rotated 
among the sororities in the order of their establishment 
on campus. 

In addition to formulating rush rules, Pan-hel is re- 
sponsible for their enforcement. In the event of viola- 
tions of the regulations, the Council decides the penalty 
and its duration. 

Included in the Panhellenic projects are scholarships 
for women, a clothing drive, orientation for pledges, and 
several lectures and round table discussions. In March, 
1945, a workshop attended by National Panhellenic repre- 
sentatives was held for the purpose of making necessary 
revisions in the local Pan-hel Association.

This first year of peacetime athletic competition finds 
varsity sports in a period of rejuvenation at the University 
of Maryland. 

Three of the school's traditional athletic leaders returned 
last year from service with the armed forces to take up 
the job of carryim^ the school through the coming sports 
boom. Geary Eppley, director of athletics, Harvey Miller, 
boxing coach, and Jack Faber, lacrosse coach, already have 
helped set the wheels rolling in the giant sports program 
planned here. 

Clark Shaughnessey, returning to Maryland following 
three years at the University of Pittsburgh, resumes his 
job as head football coach. 

Maryland teams compete in the Southern Conference, 
an organization dedicated to the promotion and betterment 
of all college athletics, and field teams in every major 
sport. 

In addition to the varsity sports program, Maryland 
during the war became a leader in physical education for 
students and is broadening that program this year. 

Under the direction of Dr. Rachel Benton, a broad 
women's physical education program is in effect, and many 
of the coeds' extra curricular activities are handled 
through her department. 

As soon as building materials are available and the 
necessary academic and student housing buildings are 
completed, it is the proposal of University officials to 
build a completely modern athletic plant. A stadium, seat- 
ing 32,000 people, and a field house, seating 14,000 for 
boxing and basketball, are on the present building schedule. 

Maryland has the materials for a great varsity sports 
program and, under the leadership of Dr. Byrd, long a 
supporter of Maryland athletics, promises to rise rapidly 
to the front. 

130 



Since the University of Maryland is a member of the 
Southern Conference, it is natural for incoming freshmen 
to ask, "just what is the Southern Conference?" The fol- 
lowing" is written to help clarify this question. 

The Southern Conference is the result of a movement 
which was started years ago by the Southern Intercollegi- 
ate Athletic Association to get together, into one com- 
pact organization, those Southern institutions which were 
progressive enough and numerically large enough to adopt 
the rules and regulations long in force in the North, East, 
and West. 

The first attempts bore no fruit but the seed had been 
sown in good soil. An organization was effected at 
Atlanta, Georgia, in 1921 and the fundamental principles 
on which the Conference should operate were laid down. 
A draft of these rales and regulations was submitted to 
the faculties of the institutions represented at the meet- 
ing, and was ratified and adopted by fourteen colleges. 

Included in the Southern Conference are the states of 
Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and 
the District of Columbia. 

The purpose of the Southern Conference is the promo- 
tion of intercollegiate athletics in every form and to 
regulate them by wise and prudent measures in order that 
they may improve the physical condition and 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 ccaiiposed of Geary Eppley, chairman. 
Dr. William Kemp, Dr. William Supplee, Dr. Ernest Cory, 
and Col. Harland Griswold. 

131 



VARSITY SPORTS 

Varsity competition at the University of Maryland is 
under the direction of Geary Eppley, director of athletics, 
and is carried on in every major sport. These being foot- 
hall, basketball, l)oxing', baseball, track (indoor and cross 
country), lacrosse, g'olf, rifle, and tennis. In the past 
wrestling and soccer were also on the list of varsity sports 
at the university but during the war years these were 
curtailed. This year play in soccer and wrestling may 
be resumed. 

FROSH SPORTS 

Though the war has given the green light to varsity 
sports at the home of the Terps, the red light is still 
shining as far as the freshmen sports parade is concerned. 
Not until the government's draft situation is settled will 
Maryland again foster freshmen sports. 

INTRAMURAL SPORTS 

In addition to the varsity sports program a vast intra- 
mural program is also carried out at Maryland under 
the supervision of the Physical Education Department. 
All students are eligible to compete in a variety of tourna- 
ments, including touch football, basketball, softball, box- 
ing, ping pong, tennis, track and a host of others. 

Intramural competition is held by members representing 
the dormitories, fraternities, sororities, independents, as 
well as the daydodger groups.

FOOTBALL 

Coach Clark D. Shaughnessy 

Assistants Al Heagy 
Al Woods 
Herman Ball 




Clark Shaughnessy, master of the T formation, returns 
to College Park this year to resume duties he abandoned 
several years ago when he became head coach at the Uni- 
versity of Pittsburgh. 

Shaughnessy will find on hand a picked squad of grid- 
ders which Paul Bryant, the 1945 Terp mentor, brought 
with him from the North Carolina Preflight school, and 
with which he was able to win six of last year's games, 
losing two and tying one. Add to Bryant's veterans re- 
turning Liners Jack "Reds" Wright, Hubey Werner, Bob 
James, and possibly others, and Old Line rooters have a 
bright picture.

Coach Harvey L. Miller 



'"'^Wiii.i 




Maryland boxing' is on the upswing again with the 
return of Heinie Miller as head coach. Miller took over 
the squad last season after five years of active duty in the 
Marine Corps and after a slow start the Terps wound up 
the year with a record of 3 victories against 5 defeats. 

Veteran ringman Tommy Maloney, the team captain, 
and Ken Malone and newcomer Phil Rogers formed the 
nucleus of the club, with the latter proving one of the 
gamest men seen in a Maryland ring. Maloney and 
Malone will be on hand to carry Liner colors this year, 
but the rest of the squad is a weighty problem.

Burton Shipley, an old standby in Maryland's coaching 
system, came up with one of the surprises of the Southern 

Conference basketball season in his 1945-46 Terrapins. 

Shipley guided the team to an impressive record and 
advanced into the semi-finals of the Conference champion- 
ship.

LACROSSE 

Coach Jack Faber 
Assistant Al Heagy 



Jack Faber returned during the 1946 season to send a 
Terrapin squad back onto the fields they so consistently 
dominated in prewar years — lacrosse, the game the Amer- 
ican Indians founded. 

Recognized in the late thirties as the outstanding col- 
legiate lacrosse power in the nation, Maryland faced the 
1946 schedule with little other than reputation, the best 
coach in the business, and a sprinkling of experienced 
players. Faber will find Bob Fetters and Jack Hoyert, 
stars of the 1946 club, missing come first practice, but in 
their place will be a thirty-player squad which has one 
year in his tuteledge, and which promises an improve- 
ment over this year's showing.

Given a wealth of baseball material, Burton Shipley 
came up with one of the soundest diamond squads in 
Maryland's history during- the 1946 season. A flood of 

returning' veterans boosted the Terps to a season record 
of twelve won and five lost, and most of the standouts 
will return next year to give Shipley one of the most 
promising squads in modern times.

Maryland colors returned to Track competition last sea- 
son under the guidance of Jim Kehoe, one of the Terra- 
pin's all-time great middle-distance men, and the Liners 
won three out of six out door meets. 

Led by Ed Matthews, their crack quarter-miler, the 
Terps competed in the Southern Conference indoor meet. 
The event marked the first appearance of Liners on the 
boards since the war began, and Kehoe contemplates full- 
fledged competition indoors and cross-country this year.

RIFLE 

Coach Col. H. C. Griswold 




Possessing- what is considered the finest indoor rifle 
range in the country (according to the National Rifle 
Association) the University of Maryland riflemen under 
the direction of Col. Harland Griswold assisted by Sgt. 
Fay Norris went through their season with an impressive 
record of 23 victories as against 13 setbacks in postal 
matches. In shoulder to shoulder competition the Terps 
won seven contests and lost five. 

In addition to the regular intercollegiate competition 
the Old Liner's came in third in the Hearst Trophy con- 
test, second in the Service Command Matches and ranked 
among the top ten teams in the country in the National 
Intercollegiate Team Matches. 

The rifle range is located in the basement of the new 
Armory and is of the most modern design. Through the 
cooperation and promotion of Col. Griswold, the range has 
developed into one of the centers of rifle activity for this 
area and is the scene of outstanding meets of eastern 
riflemen. 

Members of the rifle team receive the same varsity 
"M" awards as the other teams. All male students, 
whether taking ROTC or not, are eligible to tryouts for 
the team. Exact dates for tryouts will be announced by 
Col. Griswold and will be published in the Diaviondback.

TENNIS 

Coach Doyle Royal 



With the appointment of Doyle Royal as the Old Liner's 
new tennis coach the Terps were once again represented 
in Southern Conference tennis competition. 

The team composed of five purple heart men, of which 
three also wore the silver star, went through the season 
to chalk up five wins as against three defeats. Big guns 
of the team were DeWitt Smith and Ed LaBerge. 

This year Coach Royal will have only Ed LaBerge as 
the power man on the squad as Smith will be leaving, but 
still Coach Royal, with his eyes on "two promising mem- 
bers in the making," believes the team will be greatly 
strengthened by the recent influx of the men students on 
the campus.

James Kehoe, Men's Director 
Dr. Rachel Benton, Women's Director 

During the war years when physical fitness of every 
person in America was being stressed, Maryland Univer- 
sity took the lead in building one of the finest intramural 
athletic programs in the nation. Under the direction of 
Dr. Rachel Benton and Jim Kehoe, the men's and women's 
athletic departments are carrying on that program with 
even wider participation than was thought possible. 

The games are played on the athletic fields and in the 
field houses and gymnasiums of the University under the 
eyes of trained officials. 

Members of winning teams are awarded miniature 
prizes with the organization being awarded a trophy. 
The women's teams yearly compete for the Sigma Kappa 
sorority trophy which is presented to the house compiling 
the most points through placing first, second, or third in 
team competition during the seasons.

WOMEN'S RECREATION 
ASSOCIATION

Treasurer Aimee Loftin 

The Women's Recreation Association sponsors all 
women's athletic tournaments, playdays, and weekly after 
dinner dances. Under the direction of its adviser, Dr. 
Rachel Benton, this organization has developed steadily 
in the last few years. 

During the past year WRA held competitions in hockey, 
bowling, basketball, volleyball, and badminton. The man- 
agers for each of these tournaments were appointed from 
the roster of the WRA. Teams representing all of the 
various sororities and women's dorms, as well as the 
daydodgers and faculty, are entered in these contests. 
All of the activites, with the exception of bowling, are 
carried on in both the Women's Field House and the Gym. 
The bowling tournament is played off at the University 
Bowling Alleys. 

Two years ago the association developed a system 
whereby all games would be referreed by recognized offi- 
cials. All women students interested in winning their 
officiating badge must pass a written as well as prac- 
tical examination, prepared by the board, for each sport 
in which they wish to officiate. 

Playdays are arranged whenever possible with George 
Washington University, American University, Hood Col- 
lege, and Maryland State Teachers' College.

Maryland University's Varsity "M" Association was 
founded in 1942. The purpose of the Association is to 
foster better intercollegiate athletics and to sponsor intra- 
mural competition. 

The Club serves as a medium for uniting male students 
w^ho have similar interests and who desire to see the 
University outstanding in athletics. 

In addition to providing judges and referees for intra- 
mural sports, the association sponsors campus dances and 
plays an active role in the annual homecoming event. 

Membership to the Association is open to all wearers 
of the Varsity M.

Core of the active Maryland spirit is the battery of cheer 
leaders who conduct the Terp section in their songs and 
cheers. Although concerned primarily with promoting 
support for teams in action, the cheer leaders perform the 
task of instilling the traditional Maryland spirit through- 
out the student body. They are the organizers of the pep 
rallies and are responsible for teaching songs and yells to 
incoming freshmen. 

The organization is divided into varsity and junior 
varsity groups, with one year's service on the JV required 
for varsity participation. Tryouts for the group are held 
at the beginning of each year.

Shout out his signals loud and strong!

VICTORY SONG 

Words and music by Thornton W. Allen 

Down on the field they're fighting, 

Pride of the Black and Gold.

Warriors of U. of M.

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. 

Chorus 

Maryland, we're all behind you; 

Wave high the Black and Gold,

As to see our men victorious; 

We've got the team, boys.

THE OLD STONE WISHING WELL 

Words and music by Milton S. Cole, '42 

Down by the Old Stone Wishing Well, 

We will meet again tonight; 

There we will wander as they did in old times, 

While the stars made the gateway a shrine. 

Where the old covered wagon has been so many years, 

It is there our hearts will lose all fears, 

Down by the Old Stone Wishing Well, 

It is there our every dream will come true. 

MARYLAND! MY MARYLAND! 

Words by James R. Randall 

Arranged by Thornton W. Allen 

(Tune: "O Tannenbaum") 

Thou wilt not cower in the dust, 

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

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

Maryland! My Maryland! 

I hear the distant thunder hum, 

Maryland! My Maryland! 
The Old Line bugle, fife and drum, 

Maryland! My Maryland! 
Come! to thine own heroic throng. 
That stalks with Liberty along. 
And ring thy dauntless slogan song. 

Maryland! My Maryland!
