In recognition of outstanding service to this Univer- 
sity, his country, and of the splendid Cadet Corps that 
under his guidance has ever been a proud tradition on 
the Maryland campus, we, the editorial staff of the 
1947-48 "M" Bool: dedicate this volume to 


Col. Inf. United States Army 


Welcome to our cariipus, freshmen! The scores of 
classes that have preceded you at College Park have 
laid a foundation of hard work and earnest achievement 
that should serve as a solid hase for your higher edu- 
cation. But like any top-flight construction project, the 
base is only the beginning — the actual building is clearly 
up to you. You may have heard a great deal about post- 
war college life — its khaki-clad students, the overwhelm- 
ing predominance of males, its seriousness of purpose ; 
and too, you may have heard of the traditions tumbled 
for lack of support. These unusual situations (previous- 
ly unknown to Maryland) are inescapably true; but they 
are, in a large measure, highly stimulating to every 
student. We must keep the seriousness and yet somehow 
balance it with the charm and flavor of honored tradi- 
tions. That's a jol) you can help us carry out. You 
know, also, that the challenge of education has never 
been keener than now. In a world which has yet to 
settle down from the war, in a country whose internal 
problems are constantly testing the courage and ability 
of its people, you, as a university student walk into a 
setup carefully nurtured to fit you properly to do your 
share. It is your task to absorb a deeply-purposeful 
background of knowledge which will enable you to 
discern intelligently the important from the unimpor- 
tant. This quality of discernment is one of the finer 
things education should give you. 


"11 ail, Alma Mater 
Hail to thee Maryland 
Steadfast in 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 beloved Alma Mater; those of the present 
are striving to make, in the University, more improvements 
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. Rap- 
idly expanding, the University added a School of Law in 
1823, a School of Dentistry in 1882, a School of Nursing in 
1889, and 1904, observed the Maryland College of Pharmacy. 

The Maryland State College was chartered in 1856 under the 
name of the Maryland Agriculture College, the second agricul- 
ture college in the Western Hemisphere. In 1862, the College be- 
came 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. 

But history is more than just dates and facts ... it is found 
in traditions that have been built during those 140 years. 
The ever-vague, intangible substance, school spirit, is in- 
exorably linked with honoring traditions, pride in your school 
yet conscious of its shortcomings, and with becoming a student 
who will learn thoroughly while enjoying the sheer challenge 
of knowledge. Here at Maryland, spirit is synonomous with 
extra-curricular activities .... are you an actor? .... there's 
the Footlight Club combined with the L^ni versify Theatre .... 
are you a singer? journalist? athlete? .... there are the Wo- 


men's Chorus, the Male Glee Club, the Diamondback, the Old 
Line, and s])orts of every description both team sports and 
intra-mural. . . . And spirit is tied in with traditions .... find 
your way to the tunnel soon (with a date of course) .... meet 
Testudo the Terp who guards the approaches to the Coliseum 
and whose kidnapping last year precipitated a State contro- 

\ersy Once long ago Maryland students had a hello 

habit that made crossing the campus a friendly adventure. 
Along with other traditions friendly hello's faded from the 
Maryland atmosphere. This year you can help reinstate a 
needed informality .... school spirit too is like a lazy river and 
the slumbering bear; it must be aroused and exhuberant to be 
at its best .... we hope you like the pagentry of Homecoming, 
the colorful May day ceremonies, and walking up the hill to 
classes. . . . Maryland is a big and growing university — move in 
on us with determination and gaiety and make it bigger . . . . 
good luck !

Pfu^i4JUnt'6^ Mellatf^e 

When a student enters college he does so, souie- 
times, under the mistaken impression that life 
there is something- of a continuous round of play 
of one kind or another. The sports pages of the 
newspapers have been full of stories about ath- 
letic contests. The student paper, the yearbook, 
and other sources of student information empha- 
size dances, fraternities, club meetings, etc. But 
do not be misled. University life is a hard, dull 
routine in which men and women work long hours 
to achieve their educational ambitions. There will 
be times when you will be discouraged, and when 
it will take a real courage to travel the long, hard 
road cheerfully. In such moments, though, think 
of the splendid goals that lie ahead. 

The faculty of the University are your friends, 
and their job is to help you. But, in the last 
analysis, you will succeed only by your own 
efforts. Remember too, that even if you have high 
ambition and noble resolve, it will be only by 
diligent application to your studies and to your 
routine of work that you will be able to translate 
ambition and resolve into actual achievements. 

Through this booklet, the students hope to make 
known to you that the older students are your 
friends. Call upon them whenever you wish and you 
will receive the advice that comes from experi- 
ences with the very difficulties you yourself will 

Personally, my office door will always be open 
to you. It will be a pleasure to greet you at any 

Call upon us when you feel that we can be of

It IS a pleasure to welcome you to the campus 
of the Iniversity or Maryland, and I hope that 
you slia 1 have a very interesting, instructive and 
enjoyable stay on our campus. In selecting Marv- 
iand as the university in which to continue vour 
education you have identified yourself witli all 
those students who have graduated from the Uni- 
versity over a long period of years and wiio will 
graduate m the future. In other words, you as- 
sume a responsibility to your fellow students be- 
cause your success or failure is reflected upon 
them as their accomplishments are reflected upon 


I will be glad to have you call at mv offi -e for 
a social visit or to consider any problem tliat maN' 
be confronting you, and I shall try to find some'- 
one to help you solve it

This brief inesf>age l)iiiigs with it a hearty and 
cordial welcome to all new and returning students. 
You who are at present in college are faced with 
a grave and challenging responsibility. You must 
rebuild a broken and disillusioned world. It will 
take infinite patience, tolerance, sympathy, and 
understanding on the part of all the people if 
we are to have a new world and a lasting peace. 
We believe the University of Maryland will offer 
you the kind of training you need to help re- 
build our world, training in world problems, 
statesmanship, and citizenship. If this seems like 
too great an ambition, remember that the world 
is just a collection of human beings. We can make 
the most of our individual lives by working to- 
gether on this campus, for this is a sam])le of 
life in the world. 

May you enjoy the privilege of a college edu- 
cation, and it is a privilege, and may it be achieved 
with gratitude, interest, and enthusiasm.

Welcome to the Maryland campus freshmen and new stu- 
dents ! On behalf of the Student Government Association I 
want to invite and urge each of you to become an active mem- 
ber of our organization. It is only through your interest and 
co-operation that we can have a Student Government Associa- 
tion second to none. 

In the coming year there will be many new plans and prob- 
lems to discuss. All suggestions will be welcome, either given 
personally to one of the executive council members or through 
your own representatives. This may serve as an open bid to 
attend any or all of our meetings. 

There is little doubt that Maryland is becoming a bigger and 
better University. Be a part of this progress. Get behind the 
S.G.A. so that it may serve you best.

S.Q.A. ^444n<Ul04U 

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 questions 
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 dis- 
cussions. Only when the students are alert, cooperative and 
sincerely interested, can the S.G.A. prove a success. Meetings 
are held twice a month, or 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 payment 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 kej^t by the administration. Furthermore, each 
organization's 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 grouj).

To lielp combat tlie problems created by the vast influx 
of men students on the campus the Men's I^eague was 
reactivated in the winter of 1946 by an order of the Executive 
Council of tlie Student Government Association. 

Tlie purpose of the Men's I>eague is to concern itself with 
all problems relating to the men students; to promulgate 
projects for the improvement of campus life; and to estab- 
lish 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 Council is 
made up of one representative from eacli class, one representa- 
tive from the Interfraternity Council, and one elected member 
from the Dormitory Council. The Executive Council is headed 
by the League President. A Secretary for the League is 
elected from the members of the Executive Council. 

The Dormitory Council is raiade up of one representative from 
each dormitory or section. They elect a member from their 
group and he has a seat on the Executive Council. The Dormi- 
tory Council handles all dormitory students' problems and 
discipline. The Vice-President of the Men's League assists in 
the formation and composition of the Dormitory Council. 


Men's League Objectives 

I. The Fixecutive Council is charged with the duty of work- 
ing closely with the Dean of Men in the formulation of 
rules of social decorum and conduct for the men of the 
University . 

II. The Executive Council will meet at specified intervals 
to consider matters hrought to its attention by the Dean 
of Men or his representatives or by members of the 
League itself. 

III. The Dormitory Council is charged with the duty of 
working closely with the Assistant Dean of Men or 
whoever has jurisdiction over the dormitories in the 
formulation of rules of conduct for them. 

IV. The Dormitory Council will meet at specified intervals 
to consider matters brought to its attention by those in 
charge of the dorms or other responsible persons. 

y. The President will work with the Executive Council 
assisted by the Vice-President. The Vice-President will 
work with and assist the Chairman of the Dormitory 

Note: Under the leadershi]) of Sidney Sterman, last year's 
Mens League president, and the executive council, a move- 
ment was launched to revise the present Men's League organi- 
zation. At present the League is working without the aid of 
a constitution. Further plans i>ertaining to the reorganization 
and the w^riting of a constitution will be fully reported in the

Kvery university lias a duty to Its resident women students. 
Rules and procedure must be set ui> under which an orderly and 
healthy social life may be pursued with a minimum of regulation. 
Frequently this function of university administration is a source 
of unending contention and violation. However the women stu- 
dents of the University of Maryland are indeed fortunate. 
Women's League is a democratic, self-governing organization 
with representation from each house for women students on or 
near campus. Daydodger girls interested in all Women's League 
decisions other than those regarding cam])us residence are also 
a part of its organization. The officers of the league are elected 
by the women students of the University, and any woman stu- 
dent is privileged to attend league meetings. 

Aside from the regular activities of making and enforcing 
rules, assisting the dormitory housemothers and conducting 
hous«' meetings, the league, in conjunction with the women of the 
.Funior 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 calendars, 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 
l)rime role in the interpretation of campus rules and their 
application. 4

The connecting link between the student body and the Uni- 
versity administration on the Maryland campus is the Stu- 
dent Life Committee. This committee, appointed by the Presi- 
dent of the University and headed by Prof. James H. Reid, is 
comi)osed of those faculty members who are actively interested 
in student affairs. Keeping a strict vigilance on all activities, 
the committee acts in an advisory ca])acity and attempts to 
improve any unsatisfactory conditions that may arise on the 

Functions of the Student Life Committee are many and 
varied. During freshman orientation week the committee spon- 
sors the Freshmen Mixer, a dance to acquaint the new stu- 
dents with each other. In line with the freshmen orientation 
program the Student Life Committee and the Student Govern- 
ment Association holds a convocation at which time many 
officers of the different student organizations are introduced. 
They also aid the social director, Miss Rosalie Leslie, in the 
management of social affairs and the promotion of a full year 
social program for the entire campus. 

To be active on campus all organizations must be recognized 
by the Student Life Committee. In its approval procedure of 
campus organizations, the committee encourages clubs that will 
not be in direct competition with one another. 

Other members of the committee, besides Prof. Reid, are: 
Prof. Russell Allen, Dr. Rachel Benton, Prof. Louis Burnett,

Volpone by Ben Johnson. Attempted only twice by college 
drama groups, Volpone ran two extra performances to ac- 
comodate the demand for tickets.

Though still in its infancy the College of Military Science, 
Physical Education, and Recreation, under the guidance of 
Colonel Harland Griswold, is rapidly becoming one of the 
larger colleges on campus. The purpose of the college is to 
provide greater opportunities for those students who wish to 
major in military science and physical activities. 

The basic ROTC course, which is supervised by this College, 
is required of all male students matriculating at 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 the above courses in order to receive their academic 

To register for the advanced ROTC course a student must 
complete the basic course or its equivalent in the armed forces. 
Also, the applicant must be able to successfully pass a physical 


and other qualifying examinations. The cadets for this train- 
ing are then selected by a military board from among the 
applicants who have met all the requirements. 

The advanced students, who receive an Army appropriation 
pay, serve as officers of the ROTC regiment. Upon successful 
completion of the advanced course and upon recommendation 
of the Military Commandant and the President of the Univer- 
sity, the student will be commissioned a second lieutenant in 
the army reserves. Branches for which training is being given 
include Air Corps, Infantry, Signal Corps, and Transporta- 
tion Corps. 

Ever since its beginning in 1916 the ROTC unit at Maryland 
has won the coveted War Department rating of "generally 
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 Ar- 
mory 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 Department also maintains 
offices and locker rooms in the armory. 


The ROTC Band is under the direction of Mr. Frank Sy- 
kora 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 the 
regular military period and an extra scholastic credit is given 
to the members. Martial music for parades and special occa- 
sions is also furnished by the band. The Military Department 
plans to enlarge the size of the band to its prewar strength.

{This article in yrinted by request of the Inter fraternity 

The National Interfraternity Conference was founded in 
1908 for the purpose of discussing questions of mutual inter- 
est and to make such recommendations from time to time as 
it deems wise. It is composed of sixty-four national fraterni- 
ties which meet strict qualifications for membership. Its an- 
nual 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 Councils on cami>uses 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 Confer- 
ence and the Educational Advisory Council reduced to writing 
the following criteria in order further to advance co-operation 
between fraternities and educational institutions. The state- 
ment 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 contri- 
bution to the primary functions of the colleges and universities, 
and therefore under an obligation to encourage the most com- 
plete personal development of its members, intellectual, physi- 
cal and social. Therefore, we declare: 


1. riuit the objectives and activities of the fraternity should 
i)e in entire accord with the aims and purposes of the insti- 
tutions at wliich it has chapters. 

2. That the primary loyalty and responsibility of a student 
in liis relations with iiis institution are to the institution, and 
tiiat 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. 

S. Tliat 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 })hysical conditions in the chapter house. 

6. That the fraternity should inculcate principles of sound 
business practice both in chapter finances and in the business 
relations of its members. 

These criteria should be applied in close co-operation with 
the administrative authorities of the institution. Detailed 
methods of application will necessarilj^ vary in accordance 
with local conditions. It is the purpose of the National Inter- 
fraternity Conference to offer detailed suggestions, after 
further study and investigation, regarding practical steps to 
make this co-()])eration effective. 



The aim aiul dreaiii of infuiy a t'rcsliinan is to attain ineinbcr- 
slii]) in a great college fraternity. To many, this dream means 
luxury of living, a sense of sujieriority, a good time among 
"brothers", and a shining jiin to show the home folks. 

A fraternity or sorority should mean much more. It should 
mean closer companionship with other men or women with simi- 
lar 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 keej) 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 backward to interest that particular organization. 

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 

That you are entitled to know the financial set up of the 
fraternity that rushes you. 

That it is neither any credit to you nor to a fraternity to 
obligate yourself before the official pledge day. 

And that your success or failure does not rely on whether 
you make a fraternity or not, but on the initiative and per- 
severance you show in either situation.

The local chapter of the Interfraternity Council was founded 
in 1926 for the purpose of maintaining harmonious relations 
between the Universit.v and the Fraternities and among the 
fraternities themselves. Duties of the Council are strict super- 
vision of rushing, and improvement of the fraternity system. 
On the agenda of the Council's social program are the 
traditional Interfraternity dances. One is planned for the 
Fall term and another for the Spring term. Also on the Coun- 
cil's activities schedule are the annual interfraternity athletic 
program, and the Interfraternity scholarship and activities cups 
which are presented each year to the fraternities outstanding in 
these fields of endeavor. 

Membership on the Council consists of the president and an 
elected delegate from each of the eligible fraternities. 



Freshmen and Transferred Students: 

There is a 30 day silence period on all incoming freshmen 
and transfer students. Rushing rules and procedure will be 
announced by the Interfraternity Council in the Diamondback, 
your campus newspaper. 

Other Students: 

Rushing is unlimited. No man may be pledged, however, 
until he has been enrolled in the University for one semester.

The purpose of the Panhellenic Council is the maintenance of 
a wholesome sorority spirit and inter-sorority relations with- 
in the University, to further sound scholarship and high social 
standards, and to compile rules governing rushing, pledging, 
-and initiation. 


1. All sorority women (actives, pledges, and alumnae) shall 
be thoroughly familiar with the rush rules, fully under- 
stand them and adhere to them at all times. 

2. All students "going out" for rushing shall be thoroughly 
familiar with the rush rules and should govern their ac- 
tions accordingly. 

3. Formal rushing shall be that period beginning with the 
open house teas and continuing until pledging. 

i. Rushees shall be entertained at sorority houses only at 
designated times during formal rush week. Sororities 
shall have rush functions at a uniform time. Alpha Epsi- 
lon Phi and Phi Sigma Sigma will begin rushing several 
days later to avoid conflicting with the Yom Kippur 

5. Neither men nor non-sorority women nor alumnae may be 
present at any rush function. 

(). No eligible students shall be allowed in sorority houses 
during formal rushing except during specified rush func- 

7. No sorority women shall be allowed to enter the dormi- 
tories where the new students are residing unless she is 
living there also. 

8. No rushee shall be treated outside of the sorority houses. 


9. Sorority women sliall not "double date" with the eligible 

10. Sorority women shall not call for rushees nor return them 
to their residences. 


A. Rushing: Any women student who is eligible for matricu- 
lation who has matriculated at the University and is un- 
affiliated with any National Panhellenic Fraternity is 
eligible for formal rushing; 

B. Pledging. 1. Students in the University summer school 

are ineligible for sorority until September 
when sororities become active. 

2. A pledge shall expire one calendar year 
from the date of pledging, at which time 
the student is eligible for pledging another 

3. During rush week if a girl expresses her 
preference in writing, or formally accepts 
a bid, or wears the colors of a sorority 
during open rushing following rush week, 
she is ineligible for pledging another soro- 
rity, whether or not she has been through 
formal service. 

4. A pledge who is released by a chapter at 
any time during her pledge year, or if she 
breaks her pledge, she is ineligible for 
pledging a sorority until one calendar year 
from the date on which her pledge was 
broken. This regulation is binding regard- 
less of the campus on which the student 
may be enrolled. 

C. Initiation. Pledges who have been or have completed 
fifteen credit hours in the preceding semester in the Uni- 
versity with at least a C average and who have no failures 
on their record for that semester, and who are resident 
students in good standing and who have cleared with the 
Dean of Women's office may be initiated into a sorority.

The second year of peacetime athletic competition at the 
University of Maryland finds varsity sports in a period of re- 
organization. After having had a full year in which to get 
used to the playing habits and kinks of teammates, the Old 
Uners are ready to take on all competition, and to develop 
some of the best athletic talent in Maryland history. 

Many of the school's old guard athletic heads are returning 
to coach their respective teams, but there are those spots 
which have been filled by newcomers to the University of Mary- 
land. Col. Harvey Miller is returning to coach the team which 
he developed into the Southern Conference boxing champs, 
while Jack Faber, lacrosse coach; Burton Shipley, baseball 
mentor; Jim Kehoe, track head; Doyle Royal, Tennis coach; 
and Frank Cronin, golf coach are also donning the Black and 
Gold to continue their Maryland careers. 

Two former University of Oklahoma coaches have been added 
to the roster. The first, Jim Tatum, has assumed the position 
of head football coach, while Walter Driskill has been given 
the task of coordinating all sports as the new Director of 
.\thletics. Another addition to the Liner coaching staff is 
Flucie Stewart, former Athletic Director at Applachian 
College, Boone, North Carolina, and who now is the new Terp 
basketball mentor. 

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

Also, on the agenda of Maryland's athletic plans are the 
building of a new football stadium and a new field house 
which is to be used for all boxing and basketball events. Con- 
struction on the tv.'o projects will begin as soon as materials 
are made available. 

With these facilities, which will soon be open to all Liner 
students, Maryland's athletics promises to rise to the top 
ranks of the nation's collegiate contenders. 


Sautlte^m CoH^je^i^ace 

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 following is 
written to help clarify this question. 

The Southern Conference is the result of a movement which 
was started years ago by the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic 
Association to get together, into one compact organization, 
those Southern institutions which were progressive enough and 
numerically large enough to adopt the rules and regulation 
long in force in the North, East, and the 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 rules and 
regulations was submitted to the faculties of the institutions 
re])resented at the meeting, and was ratified and adopted by 
fourteen colleges. 

Included in the Southern Conference are the states of Mary- 
land, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and the Dis- 
trict of Columbia. 

The purpose of the Southern Conference is the promotion 
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 

All athletics at Maryland operate under the direction of the 
Athletic Board of which Geary Eppley is chairman. Other 
members are, Dr. William Kemp, Dr. William Supplee, Dr. 
Ernest Cory, Col. Harland Griswold, and Mr. Walter Driskill. 



Walter S. Driskill 


Varsity competition at the University of Maryland is under 
the direction of Walter S. Driskill, director of athletics, and 
is carried on in every major sport. These being football, 
basketball, baseball, track (indoor, outdoor, and cross-coun- 
try), lacrosse, golf, rifle, tennis, soccer, and wrestling. In the 
past, soccer and wrestling were full-fledged sports on the 
Maryland campus, !)ut during the war, competition died out in 
these fields. Last year saw the return of wrestling as a varsity 
sjiort and this season, soccer again makes its bid. 


Though the war gave the green light to varsity sports, the 
light is still red as far as the freshmen sports parade is 
concerned on the Maryland Campus. But with the reinstalla- 
tion of the Southern Conference ruling pertaining to freshman 
sports, plans have been placed in operation, so that once more 
this section of the Terp's sports may again become a govern- 
ing factor for the selection of varsity stars for the various 
sports during the last three years of the students' stay at 
the University of Maryland. 



Coach Jim Tatum 
Assistants George Barclay 
Houston Elder 
Al Heagy 
Bill Meeks 
Al Woods ,, 

Jim Tatum, after an extremely successful stay at North 
Carolina, the Xavy, and the University of Oklahoma, will 
start his first season at Maryland this month, in what may be 
the turning point in Maryland's see-saw football program. 
Although it is doubtful that a championship eleven will de- 
velop from the gridiron machine this season, with a number 
one coaching staff and a wealth of material to choose from, the 
future is far from being black. 

Tatum will find that he has a well-balanced line and back- 
field to start the season, although many of the recent Terp 
grid veterans will be missing. Absent are Jack "Reds" Wright, 
Tommy Mont, Ed Chovanes, Emile Fritz, Bob James, and 
many others, but even at that, with the remaining material 
and incoming students, the Maryland picture is rosy.

Coach Harvey L. Miller 
Assistant Frank Cronin 

Under the guidance of Heinie Miller, head boxing coach, 
the boxing squad punched out seven victories and a Southern 
Conference Championship against a single disputed loss, as 
they once again gained a top berth in the realms of the colle- 
giate sport. 

In addition, two Maryland men, Ed Rieder, 155 pounder, 
and Ken Malone, heavy-weight, took individual Conference 
Championships. During the season, Rieder lost two bouts, and 
Malone lost one of the ten trips they both took to the squared 
circle. Andy Quattrocchi who, because of a broken hand, was 
unable to enter the conference bouts was the outstanding 
fighter of the year, winning all five of his bouts, four by 
knockouts and the fifth by a TKO, although he had sustained a 
a broken hand. Other outstanding boxers included Danny 
Mcl.aughlin, Danny Smith, Al Salkowski, Tommy Maloney 
and Bob Gregson. With no varsity members of the team leav- 
ing, a powerhouse should develop again this season, particu- 
larly since many promising fighters are entering the Univer- 
sitj' this semester. In addition, a school-wide elimination 
tournament is being sponsored to bring forth any talent which, 
here-to-fore may have remained hidden. 



Coach Albert (Flucie) Stewart 

Replacing Burton Shipley, who retired from his post as the 
Old Liner's basketball coach after 23 years of active duty, comes 
Flucie Stewart, big wheel in sports from Appalachian Col- 
lege of Boone, N. C. Stewart, who has handled all major sports 
in several colleges, comes to Maryland after having his team 
win the North Carolina State Conference crown twice and 
end last season with 18 wins in 23 games. With a top coach 
remaining at the basketball helm, and many stars and new 
faces coming to the fore, a championship team can easily

Coach Jack Faber 
Assistant Al Heagy 

Jack Faber returned to Maryland in I94(i, for the first full 
season in several years, to send a Terrapin scjuad back onto 
the fields they so consistently dominated in prewar years. 

Recognized in the late thirties as the outstanding collegiate 
lacrosse power in the nation, Maryland has faced the 1946 and 
1947 schedules with little other than reputation, the best coach 
in the business, and a sprinkling of experienced players. 
Faber will find, however that many of his stars will return, 
after having played a season of the sport as a team. Among 
those who will return are Tom Hoffecker, all-American goalie 
of last year; Jiles Freeman, Maryland's scoring ace and his 
partner Otts Lundvall, plus the ever popular and fast moving 
Ruppersberger brothers, John and Bill. Missing from the 
line-up is Ramon Grelecki, all-American in two years of his 
])laying. During the season the Terps scored 84 points to 63 by 
their opponents.

Coach Frank Cronin 

A golf team was formed on the Maryland campus, after a 
lapse of years, by Coach Frank Cronin, one of the University's 
great athletes, and in the course of it's first season set a 
blistering pace that future teams will find difficult to follow. 

Pace-setter for the Terp squad w'hich won 6 of its 9 sched- 
uled matches was Leonard Liebman, who regretably for the team, 
graduated last June. But the majority of the remaining members 
of the team will return this season, and with such stars as 
Reid Phippeny to lead them, much can be accomplished.

Coach Burton Shipley 

Getting off to a weak start, Burton Shipley's diamond 
squad was unable to overcome early season losses it sustained 
although turning in a wonderful performance during the 
mid-season of last year. In chalking up ten victories, they 
never-the-less lost eleven games leaving them on the red side 
of the ledger. But with most of last year's stars returning a 
different story is in the oflfing.

Coach Jim Kehoe 

Maryland colors flew high in track under the competent

Redd, in winning five of its six outdoor meets, and finishing 
third in both the Southern Conference Out-door and In-door 

Led by such men as Mario Salvanelli in the hurdles, Bill 
Wisner in the two mile, Barney Gugel in the 100 and 220, Jim 
Kurz in the shotput, August Eichhorn in the javelin. Sterling 
and Lindy Kehoe in the mile, and Ed Matthews, crack quarter- 
miler, coupled with Tom Devlin's aid, Maryland proved to be a 
very worthy opponent to all competitors. The majority of 
Coach Kehoe's pace-setting team will return this season, but 
several faces will be gone. Despite the loss of two top track- 
men, Tom Devlin and Stirling Kehoe, Coach Kehoe contem- 
plates a successful season in the in-door and cross-country meets 
this year, as well as the regular out-door meets.

Coach Harland C. Griswold 
Assistant T-Sgt. Fay Norris 

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 what is believed to be a collegiate 
record in winning 105 postal matches without suffering a 
single defeat. 

In addition to the regular intercollegiate competition, the 
Old Liner's captured the National Intercollegiate Champion- 
ship and broke the standing record by five points. They also 
won the individual National Championship, as well as the 
placing in second place, breaking the record in this category, by 
one point. Other wins of the year included the winning of the 
District Championship against the combined power of 30 teams, 
and placed a tie for first place in the Hearst Trophy award, 
(this match was a postal match for ROTC Students) as well 
as winning the Service Command Trophy for first place. 

Members of the rifle team receive the same varsity "M" 
awards as the other teams. All students, whether taking ROTC 
or not, are eligible to tryout for the team. This includes the 
coed students, for a women's team was in the stage of organi- 
zation at the end of last season. Exact dates for tryouts will 
be announced by the rifle coaches and will be published in the 



Coach Doyle Royal 

With the end of Coach Doyle Royal's second year as the 
Old Liner's tennis leader, the Terps found themselves finishing 
a season marked with seven victories against five losses. Except 
for the fact that the team completed the season with several 
of its first-string men on the side-lines because of injuries, 
the Marylanders might have cut their losses down to a single 

Big guns of the team last season were Ed LaBerge, who 
repeated his '^shining star" role from the preceeding season, 
and Bob Grogan. This year Coach Royal will have both ot 
these men returning to his string, as well as most of the 
other players of the team.

Coach William (Sully) Krouse 

After a war-time disappearance of the sport, Coach Sully 
Krouse, formed a varsity wrestling team on the Maryland 
campus, which, although, the record is unimpressive has a very 
bright outlook for the future. 

Winning but two of their scheduled six matches, the Terp 
grapplers have come forth with several good wrestlers, and a 
wealth of promising material which bids well for Coach 
Krouse's hopes of producing a conference championship squad. 
In this past season's conference contest the University of

Maryland campus this past season after a lapse of six years. 
Under the guidance of Coach Doyle Royal the soccer squad 
managed to win two of its three games. 

Soccer history at the home of the Terps has always been rather 
meager, this in all doubt is due to the neglect of publicity for the 
sport even though it's been on the campus for quite a few 
years. In looking over the history of soccer at the University 
of Maryland, we find that the 1938 Terps were State cham- 
l^ions who blasted a two year winning streak of Delaware with a 
;i-l victory. After the 1938 season the team gradually improved 
until they reached their stride in 1941, the last year of full-time 
soccer competition. In 1941 the skin-kicking squad won eight 
games, seven of these being shutouts. It also played 1-1 and 0-0 
ties with Temple and Navy, two of the Nation's toughest teams 
that year. 

Though the coming season's outfit will be a far cry from the 
1941 aggregation. Royal still contemplates a fairly successful 
year this fall on the showing of last year's team.

Dr. Rachel Benton, Women's Director 

During the war years when physical fitness of every person 
in America was being stressed, Maryland University took the 
lead in building one of the finest intramural athletic programs 
in the nation. Under the Direction of Dr. Rachel Benton and 
Walter Driskill, 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 season.

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 managers 
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 daydogers and faculty, are 
entered in these contests. All of the activities, with the ex- 
ception 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. 

Three years ago the association developed a system whereby 
all games would be refer reed by recognized oflficials. All women 
students interested in winning their officiating badge must pass 
H written as well as a practical examination, prepared by the 
board, for each sport in which they wish to officiate. 

Playdays are arranged whenever possible with George Wash- 
ington University, American University, Hood College, and 
Maryland State Teachers' College.

Nucleus of the active Maryland spirit is the battery of cheer 
leaders who conduct the Liner 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 throughout 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.

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.
