Lieutenant Colonel, Infantry, U. S. A. 

Class of '36 

An inspiration to all who knew 
him - - he exemplifies the best 
the Unioersity has produced. 


10 THE CLASS OF 1952, 
and all transfers, this is your book, your introduc- 
tion to the University of Maryland. College life has 
fluctuated considerably in the past few years. The 
flood of veterans has noticeably subsided ; there are 
^more women, although they are still greatly out- 
numbered. The G. I. clothing hasn't worn out yet, 
but most of its wearers have become firmly im- 
planted as civilian students, mature, earnest, capable, 
with a desire for education. True, college life is 
settling down, but it can never afford to slip too 
deeply into the abandonment which marked it in 
the thirties. You are entering the University for 
the first time and it is most im.perative that you 
realize the responsibility of the educated person in 
a society which apparently is always moving but 
whose sense of direction does not always keep pace. 
Seriousness of purpose need not be overdone. The 
scholarship and the extracurricular activities can be 
readily balanced with a thorough-going social life. 
Remember that a University teaches not only inside, 
but also outside of the classroom. Your efforts alone 
will give you the most from both sources. Welcome 
to our campus: make yourself at home, and good

Few persons realize the width of the Jump between high school education and 
university work until they take that jump. The greater freedom of University living, 
the lack of restrictions of the home, the taking for granted by professors that the 
high school student has suddenly become a man, with all of man's recognition of 
responsibilities, combine to raalce the first semester of the JVeshman year perhaps the 
most difficult of all four years of college. 

New students will cone in contact with many things that they do not under- 
stand. I'/hen they do, they should remember that their best friends are members of the 
faculty and administrative officers, whose only objective is the welfare of students. 
Every student in difficulty, who does not understand what he should do, ought to go 
to any member of the faculty he may know, or to any administrative officer, to ask 
questions - any number of questions that may be necessary to clear up difficiilties 
that may exist. 

University life is not the country-club existence that sone humorous 
magazines depict, but is a dull, hard routine of work, in which men and T/omen give 
long hours to achieve their ambitions. You have a long, hard road to travel, but 
perseverence and a little common sense will bring you to its end successfully. 

You have ly best wishes. Call upon us when you need help.

Student Government 

Message from S6A President 

More than anything else, in welcoming you to our 
campus, I want to emphasize the role which Student 
Government will play in your college life and the 
role which you should play in Student Government. 

The SGA, through appropriations, indirectly 
supervises nearly all student activities. Your par- 
ticipation in these activities, publications, theatre, 
music, social, is the immediate benefit you derive 
from Student Government. 

Further, your support of Student Government 
may become even more concrete by participating 
actively at the meetings of the Executive Council, 
thereby assuming a direct interest in the manner in 
which Student Government is conducted. 

On behalf of the SGA then, I extend best wishes 

for an instructive and stimulating stay at Maryland 

to all of you. i ' c' u

Student Government Association 

The Student Government Association, 
of which every student is a member, is the official 
representative body, bearing authority delegated to 
it by the University's Administration. Most of its 
leaders are elected from the student body with a few 
selected, to aid in conducting student government, 
from various organizations and honorary societies. 
Elections take place in the spring. 

The S.G.A. consists of three divisions: The Exec- 
utive Council, the Men's League, and the Women's 
League. The Council is the supreme governing 
body, and the Leagues decide on and enforce all 
campus regulations. 

Student activities are controlled by the S.G.A. and 
are financed for the most part by the 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 attend all S.G.A. sponsored activities. 


$. G. A. - - Continued 

Records of each organization are kept by the ad- 
ministration and are always open for inspection. 

The actual work of S.G.A. is carried on by com- 
mittees, the major ones are listed in the organiza- 
tional chart. Students are invited to serve on these 
various committees, generally under the chairman- 
ship of a member of the Executive Council. Mem- 
bership of the committees should be campuswide 
and any student who wishes to work on behalf of 
the student government is most earnestly urged to 
do so. The only effective government is one in 
which all the governed participate. And, particular- 
ly, for a governing body, whose authority as 
students is necesarily and justifiably limited, the 
need for every member to contribute actively is 
acute and lends strength to the organization.

Men's League 

President Harry Dow 

Vice-President Robert Roberts 

The Men's League is one of three divisions 
of the Student Government Association and serves 
the male students of the University. The League is 
divided into two sections; the Executive Council 
and the Dormitory Council. 

The Executive Council is composed of one repre- 
sentative from each class, an elected member from 
the Dormitory Council, and representatives from 
the Interfraternity Council, and the Independent 
Students Association. The President and the Vice- 
President are elected by the male student body at 
large. The Executive Council concerns itself with 
the problems of male students and the general im- 
provement of the campus; it works in conjunction 
with the Dean of Men in these respects. The Council 
also recognizes achievement by awarding a bronze 
cup annually to the outstanding male senior on 

The Dormitory Council serves in a disciplin- 
ary capacity for all violators of the Dormitory 

The Men's League office is located in Dorm. "0," 
Room 12, students should not hesitate to take any 
related problems or suggestions to the League's 


Women's League 

President Mary Crapster 

Vice-President Jeanne Regus 

Secretary June Degler 

Treasurer BiLLEE Hatcher 

The Functions of the Women's League 
are to co-operate with the Dean of Women in for- 
mulating, administering, and interpreting rules 
governing the conduct of women at the University. 
Each year the League publishes a pamphlet of the 
regulations concerning the women who live on the 
campus. These regulations are revised by the 
League each year under the guidance of the Dean of 
Women to eliminate existing fallacies and to achieve 
a practical set of rules. 

The ofl&cers are elected annually by women stu- 
dents, with representatives from each of the resi- 
dences and from each class. The League meets once 
a week to act on subjects vital to the women of the 

Aside from the regular activities of making and 
enforcing rules, conducting house meetings, and 
assisting dormitory housemothers, the League spon- 
sors the annual May Day celebration in co-operation 
with the women of the Junior Class.

1 History and ^xQdxWom 


In 1807 the first school of the University of Maryland, the 
College of Medicine, was established in Baltimore, Within 
a few years several other professional schools were founded 
and the growth of the University had begun. 

A group of southern Maryland farmers in 1856 found at 
College Park a desirable location for the first agricultural 
college in the United States and the second in the entire 
hemisphere. The Maryland Agricultural College, as it was 
then known, was financed by the sale of stock at $25 a 

Following the Civil War the directors of the College were 
forced to call upon the State Legislature for aid, which it 
gave, becoming co-owner, with the stockholders of the 
rapidly expanding school and farm lands. Maryland was 
one of the first beneficiaries of the Land Grand Act of 1862 
and the subsequent federal aids to higher education. 

It was in the next few years that the little agricultural 
college in Prince Georges County grew in student body, 
faculty, facilities, and import. As the spirit and numbers 
of its undergraduates and alumni grew, Maryland assumed 
a place of respect in the eyes of all throughout the state. 

Having weathered a disastrous fire in 1912 the school 
almost succumbed to the decrease of enrollment due to the 
war, and again an appeal was made to the State Legislature. 
At this time the stockholders were bought out and the 
undergraduate schools at College Park became a part of 
the State's educational system. 

Thus, in 1920, the undergraduates and professional stu- 
dents were joined together as the present University of 
Maryland, which has advanced to its present position as a 
leading institution on the collegiate level of education. 



No university is complete without traditions and Mary- 
land is no exception. The "hello habit" is a time-honored 
and friendly custom of speaking to everyone on the campus. 
A strange face one day is a familiar one the next. The 
semester scarcely has begun before old grads are returning 
for homecoming, which includes the Freshman-Sophomore 
tug-of-war over Paint Branch Creek. All night before the 
big game weary freshmen arms beat a drum heralding the 
hoped-for victory. Soon the Rossborough Club will present 
one of its four yearly dances, featuring a big-name band. 
Then before you can say "yeah Maryland," the Autumn 
Carnival, with its gala events, will be behind us and the 
Christmas pageant on the steps of Dorm C just ahead. It 
won't be long then until spring and with it the Inter- 
Fraternity sing and afterwards the winners and losers will 
meet at "Zal's" to quench their thirst and debate the judges' 
decisions. Spring sports also arrive about this time with 
the annual lacrosse game with Hopkins and the battle over 
much-traveled Testudo. June finals and farewells follow 
all too quickly, but before leaving we all will stop at the 
Wishing Well behind Rossborough Inn to toss in a penny 
and ask for something we dearly desire. 


Explanation of Unioersity Seal 

Maryland is unique in her Great Seal, and presents a 
marked contrast with those of the other States of the 
American Union, in that it consists of Armorial bearings of 
a strictly heraldic character, while the others bear "emblems 
indicative of agriculture and commerce, prosperity, or 
kindred subjects represented in a pictorial manner." 

The Great Seal cut in silver was sent to the province in 
1648 by Lord Baltimore, thus it is three hundred years old 
this year, and the oldest state seal among the forty-eight. 
The escutcheon bore the Calvert and Crossland arms 
quartered. The first and fourth quarters consisted of six 
verticle bars, alternately gold and black with a bend dexter 
counter charged — that is, a diagonal stripe on which colors 
are reversed— being the Calvert arms; the second and third 
quarters consisted of a quartered field of red and silver 
charged with a Greek, or equal-limbed cross, classified as 
"Botany"^ — ^its arms terminating trefoils— and also counter- 
charged, that is, with the colorings reversed, red being on 
the silver ground and silver on the red — the latter quarter- 
ings being from the Crossland, Baltimore's maternal arms. 
These quarterings were surmounted by an earl's coronet 
and full-faced helmet, which indicated his rank in America 
as that of a Count Palatine— his rank in England being that 
of a Baron only. On the helmet rested the Calvert crest, a 
ducal crown, with two half bannerets, one gold and one 
black. The escutcheon was supported on one side by the 
figure of a farmer, and the other by that of a fisherman — 
symbols of each of his two estates, Maryland and Avalon. 

Below them was a scroll bearing the Calvert motto: "Fatti 
maschii Parole Femine" — ^deeds are males, words, females. 
Behind the escutcheons and coronets was engraved an 
ermined-lined mantle, and surrounding all, on a border 
encircling the seal is the legend: 

University of Maryland • 1807 • 1856 • 1920 
The heraldic terms used in describing the colors in the 
Calvert arms are "Or" and "Sable," meaning gold and black.

Without a doubt, the most unpredictable of Maryland 
Publications, the Old Line (monthly student magazine of 
the University of Maryland) is now beginning its fifteenth 
year of existence, 

Everchanging with the times, the fashions, and the moods 
of incoming editors with "revolutionary" ideas, this one-time 
humor monthly, one-time literary quarterly, today stands 
defined simply as YOUR magazine. It is designed to be 
produced by you, read by you, and the editors hope, en- 
joyed by you. The Old Line quite frankly caters only to 
the wants and appetites of Maryland students — none other. 

If you write, if you draw, if you "business," the Old Line 
welcomes you. The magazine's office is in the rear of the 
Recreation Building. Come in and introduce yourself. 


Publications Board 

The Publications Board is a body of students and faculty 
which governs policies and finances of the four student pub- 
lications, the Diamond back. Terrapin, Old Line, and the 
M Book. 

A plan established last year stipulates that a candidate 
for a major position in publications must submit an applica- 
tion containing a statement of qualifications and proposed 
program. Appointments are made by the Board. 

One member of the Board acts as advisor to work directly 
with the student publications in a supervisory capacity to 
carry out the decisions of the Publications Board. Faculty 
members, one of which is chairman, are appointed by the 
President of the University. Students on the Board are the 
editors of Maryland publications, president of the Student 
Government Association, and president of Pi Delta Epsilon, 
journalistic honorary. The editors have a vote only on 
matters concerning their own publications.

Student life Committee 

The connecting link between the student body and 
the University administration on the Maryland 
campus is the Student Life Committee, appointed 
by the President of the University and headed by 
Professor James H. Reid. Composed of those 
faculty members who are actively interested in stu- 
dent affairs, it keeps a strict vigilance on all activi- 
ties, acting in an advisory capacity and attempting 
to improve any unsatisfactory conditions that may 
arise on the 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. 

Among other activities, the Committee sponsors 
the Freshman Mixer, cooperates in convocation, and 
aids the social director. Miss Leslie, in the manage- 
ment of social affairs for the campus year.

With the rapid increase in post-war enrollment and the 
re-establishment of the advanced course, Maryland's Corps 
of Cadets has become one of the largest in the country. 
Under Col. Harlan C. Griswold, who was retired on June 30, 
the ROTC also became one of the top five rated units in 
the country. 

All male students except veterans must enroll in the two- 
year basic course, which includes instruction in military 
skills and in drill. Two credit hours are given for each of 
the four semesters of the basic course. 

Students who complete the basic course or who have had 
equivalent training in the armed forces are eligible to apply 
for the advanced course. They must be able to pass 
physical and other qualifying examinations. Cadets for this 
training are then selected by a military board from among 
the applicants who have met all the requirements. 

The advanced students, who receive a monetary allow- 
ance, serve as officers and non-commissioned officers of the 
ROTC regiment. Upon completion of the course and upon 
recommendation of the Military Commandant and the Presi- 
dent of the University, students are commissioned as second 
lieutenants in the Army of the United States in one of the 
following branches: Infantry, Signal Corps, Transportation 
Corps, and in the Air Force. 

The ROTC and the Military Department are housed in 
the Armory and the Gym. The Armory, constructed in 
1943, is one of the finest in the country. The ten point rifle 
range affords adequate facilities for Maryland's crack teams, 
consistently among the best. 

Mr. Frank Sykora of the Music Department is beginning 
his second year as Director of the ROTC Band. Members 
are chosen from members of the Corps of Cadets who play 
musical instruments. Practice is held during regular drill 
periods and extra scholastic credit is given to its members.

Inter-CoUegiate Sports 

The third year of peacetime athletic competition 
at the University of Maryland found varsity sports 
at a never before attained peak. After having had 
a two-year period in which to become accustomed 
to the playing habits and traits of teammates, the 
Old Liners are prepared for the toughest sports 
schedule in the history of the University. 

The coaching staff which led the school's athletic 
forces remains the same as in the 1947-48 season. 
Jim Tatum, head football coach, returns with the 
additional duties of Director of Athletics, left vacant 
by the resignation of Walter Driskill. Col. Harvey 
Miller, head boxing coach bids fair to return the 
Southern Conference title to the University of Mary- 
land. Also returning to coach the Black and Gold 
teams are Jack Faber, Lacrosse, Burton Shipley, 
Baseball, Jim Kehoe, Track, Doyle Royal, Soccer 
and Tennis, and Frank Cronin, Golf. Top basket- 
ball man for the second year is Albert "Flucie" 
Stewart while Col. Harland Griswold once more 
directs the rifle team. 

Under the direction of Dr. Rachel Benton, a 
comprehensive women's physical education program 
is now being planned. 


Southern Conference 

Founded in 1921 to promote and regulate inter- 
collegiate athletics in every form, the Southern Con- 
ference today is made up of colleges and universi- 
ties in the states of Virginia, North Carolina, South 
Carolina, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. 

Represented are Clemson, William and Mary, 
Davidson, North Carolina State, South Carolina, 
Duke, North Carolina, Furman, Citadel, Richmond, 
V.M.I., Wake Forrest, V.P.I., George Washington, 
Washington and Lee, and Maryland. Each member 
is entitled to one vote. 

Maryland's voting delegate is Geary F. Eppley, 
vice-president of the Southern Conference and chair- 
man of the University of Maryland Council of Inter- 
collegiate Athletics. 

Returning this year to prewar eligibility rules, the 
Southern Conference has reinstated regulations re- 
garding freshman participation, transfers, residence 
requirements, and outside participation. 

Maryland is also a member of the National Col- 
legiate Athletic Association, the United States Inter- 
collegiate Lacrosse Association, and the Intercol- 
legiate Amateur Athletic Association of America.

A reorganized and rejuvenated football squad, under the 
capable guidance of Jim Tatum, gave the Terrapm school 
one of its most successful seasons, when the Old Lmers won 
seven games, lost and tied two. 

With a wealth of new material plus the one-two punch of 
halfbacks Lu Gambino (top scoring ace of major colleges 
last season) and Hubie Werner, Maryland is the school to 
watch. Particularly when they are backed by such men as 
Gene Kinney, Vic Turyn, Harry Bonk, and Elmer Wmgate.

Under the experienced eye and guidance of Heinie Miller, 
head boxing coach, the boxing squad punched out seven 
victories with one loss and two 4-4 deadlocks. The loss was 
to ever strong Army by a single point. 

Ed Rieder, Southern Conference champion at 155 for the 
second year was eliminated in the finals for the national 
crown by 155 pound champ Herb Carlson. Hard luck, for 
the second year dogged the trail of Andy Quattrocchi, one 
of the collegiate all-time greats in the lightweight slot. 
Andy, with the punch of a middleweight, floored all op- 
position until the conference championships. In this bout 
he was slowed by an injured knee. Ditto in the nationals.

With a 10 win 4 loss record for the past season, the 
Maryland linkmen, under the guidance of Coach Frank 
Cronin will soon start preparing for their third year under 
varsity regulations. 

The return of most of Cronin's experienced golfers, plus 
the addition of several better-than-average newcomers, 
serves warning on opposing schools that an undefeated 
season is the aim of the team. 

Bill Cassedy, number one man, is the only man on the 
squad who will be missing next year. The others, Frank 
Butterfield, Reid Phippeny, Bob Clark, John Armacost and 
Jack Call will be on hand for the first match. 

Among the season's victories was a repeat in the winning 
of the Western Maryland open and a win over West Vir- 
ginia, undefeated in two seasons. 

Maryland's eight wins and three losses in the 1948 season 
are a far cry from the 1947 disaster, the Terps lost all but 
four games, winning none of the major clashes for the worst 
year in Maryland's lacrosse history. 

In scoring 102 goals, the Old Liners were met with a 
total of 57 points scored by the opposition. Recognized in 
the late thirties as the outstanding collegiate lacrosse power 
in the nation, Maryland met post-w^ar teams with little more 
than reputation, the best coach in the business and a sprink- 
ling of experienced players.

A poor start with four victories in the first twelve games 
seemed to doom the diamond squad, but a fast finish gave 
the team a record of 13 wins, 9 loses and 2 tie games. The 
strength last season was at bat, with weaknesses existing in 
the field. 

At bat, ten players who had batted more than 25 times, 
each finished the season above the .300 mark with Jim 
Moeler leading the sluggers with 17 hits in 44 tries for a 
.386. He was closely followed by John Hunton's .373. John 
Condon's .370, Al Tuminski's .361 and Joe Andrus with 
.358. With this as the record, the team will concentrate on 
fielding and pitching for the 1949 season. 

Center Fielder Joe Andrus led his teammates in several 
departments as he romped home for 21 runs. He also 
showed the way with four triples, 29 hits, and 12 stolen 
bases. Gene Ensweller led in two base hits by swatting 
six, while Bob Brewer banged out three home runs and 
knocked 19 runs across the plate. 

All-in-all, the outlook for the coming year is bright for 
the baseball team with both weaknesses and strengths being 
spotted by the coaching staff. 


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. H. C. Griswold, assisted by Sgt. Norris went through 
their dual meet season undefeated, winning 19 shoulder to 
shoulder matches. 

In addition to the regular intercollegiate competition, the 
Old Liners captured the Hearst Trophy award as well as 
winning the Service Command Trophy for first place and 
the District Championship. Their only defeats for the 
season were handed out by Army for the Metropolitan New 
York Area Crown, by a single point, and the loss of the 
National Intercollegiate Championship Crown to Navy by 
one point. Both of these teams fell before the Old Liner 
rifle team in dual shoulder to shoulder matches. 

Members of the rifle team receive the same varsity "M" 
awards as the other teams. All students are eligible to try- 
out for the team, although only ROTC students may fire in 
the Hearst Trophy Match. Coed's may also tryout for the 
team. Exact dates for tryouts will be announced by the 
rifle coaches and will be published in the Diamondback. 



Maryland colors flew high in track and cross country, 

under the competent guidance of Coach Kehoe, as the teams 

went undefeated in dual competition. The track team won 
six, the cross country won five.

A 5-3-1 record was sported by the 1948 tennis team under

were held with part of his squad on the sidelines due to 
injuries. Although not an exceptional record, it is far 
from bad and the coming season is expected to be even 

Big guns of the team last season were Tom Beight who 
won four of his singles matches while losing only one, Ed 
Miller with a 4-2 record and Babe Rothenhoefer with 6-3. 
Ed LaBerge and Miller teamed in the doubles to win five 
matches while losing one.

Soccer, once more a varsity sport, rolled into high gear 
last season when the team went undefeated, with a single 
tie to mar their record. Included in their wins was the 
defeat of Temple, recognized national champs, who was 
sporting a 19 game, three year winning streak. In all. 
Coach Royal's charges won six matches with a total point 
scoring of 27 against 8 by the opposition. 

The power demonstrated by the soccer team last season 
was reminiscent of the 1941 squad which won eight games, 
seven of which were shutouts. With the contemplated return 
of most of his regulars of the 1947 season. Coach Royal 
expects an even better team than last year. 

In addition to regular varsity games, the team sent mem- 
bers on the road with a conference team which toured a 
large section of the country with exhibition games. Three 
stars of the team, Dick Cleveland, Beach, and Eddie Rieder 
were also members of the semi-final Olympic tryout team 
for soccer.

Coach Krouse's charges won five meets while losing the

powerhouses as North Carolina State and V. M. I. This is 
an improvement over 1947's 2-6 record, but the team re- 
mained in fourth place in the Southern Conference Tourna- 
ment standing. 

The wrestling team has had two years to become 
conditioned by Coach Krouse who has his eyes on the con- 
ference championship held by Washington and Lee. Pace- 
setters for last season were Jim Scott, 145, and Bob 
Marsheck, ace at either 165 or 175, who both won nine con- 
tests. Next in line was Ed Gurny, 135, who won eight.

During the war years when physical fitness of every person 
in America was being stressed, Maryland took the lead in 
building one of the finest intramural athletic programs in 
the nation. Under the direction of Dr. Rachel Benton and 
Jim Tatum, the women's and men'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 the winning teams are awarded gold and 
silver terrapins 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 com- 
piling the most points through placing first, second, or third 
in team competition during the season.

Freshman Sports 

Though varsity sports have been running at top 
speed since the end of the war, freshman sports 
have remained inactive until the past season. But, 
with the reinstallation of the Southern Conference 
ruling pertaining to freshman participation in 
sports, frosh teams are moving into high. These 
teams will be the governing factor for the selection 
of varsity stars for the various sports during the 
last three years of the students' stay at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. 

Varsity Sports 

Varsity competition at the University of Mary- 
land is under the direction of Jim Tatum, director 
of athletics and head football coach, and is carried 
on in every major sport. These are football, basket- 
ball, baseball, boxing, track (indoor, outdoor, and 
cross-country I , lacrosse, soccer, rifle, tennis, golf 
and wrestling. Soccer is a 1948 addition to the 
varsity-standing sports. 


Council on 
Intercollegiate Athletics 

All athletics at Maryland operate under the direc- 
tion of the Council on Intercollegiate Athletics of 
which Geary F. Eppley is chairman. 

Other members are Dr. William B. Kemp, Dr. 
William Supplee, Dr. Ernest Cory, and James 
Tatum, Arthur I. Bell, president of the General 
Alumni Council, and Louis C. Eisenhauer, president 
of the Student Government Association, hold mem- 
bership ex-officio. 

Rally Committee 

Chairman Herb Siegel 

The Rally Committee, under the supervision of 
the Student Government Association, was formed 
last year to enable the student body to conduct 
better pep rallies and half-time ceremonies at all 
athletic events here. The group will also arrange 
transportation for student who wish to attend the 
away games. Different types of entertainment will be 
planned for the half-time of games played on the 
campus and in Washington. Transportation will 
be furnished for those students who wish to attend 
the games in Washington.

Fraterniti) Criteria 

[This article is printed by request of the 
Inter fraternity Council) 

The National Interfraternity Conference was 
founded in 1908 for the purpose of discussing ques- 
tions of mutual interest and to make such recom- 
mendations from time to time as it deems wise. It 
is composed of sixty-four national fraternities which 
meet strict qualifications for membership. Its 
annual conferences are attended by about three 
hundred and fifty deans of men and college presi- 
dents. It sponsors the National Undergraduate 
Councils on campuses all over the United States and 
Canada, which meets in conjunction with the Con- 
ference itself. It publishes a Year Book, the report 
of its annual meeting, in which much valuable in- 
formation about college fraternity life is included. 

In the fall of 1934, the Executive Committee of 
the Conference and the Educational Advisory Coun- 
cil reduced to writing the following criteria in order 
to further advance co-operation between fraternities 
and education institutions. The statement was sub- 
sequently approved by the American Association of 
Deans, Advisers of Men and by the Conference it- 
self. It reads as follows: 


Fraternity Criteria-Continued 

We consider the fraternity responsible for a posi- 
tive contribution to the primary functions of the 
colleges and universities, and therefore under an 
obligation to encourage the most complete develop- 
ment of its members, intellectual, physical and 
social. 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 institutions at which it has 

2. That the primary loyalty and responsibility of 
a student in his relations with his institution are to 
the institution, and that the association of any group 
of students as a chapter of a fraternity involves the 
definite responsibility of the group for the conduct 
of the individual. 

3. That the fraternity should promote conduct 
consistent with good morals and good taste. 

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

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


Fraternity Hints 

Being a Brother in a fraternity means much more 
than merely wearing a shining pin on your sweater; 
you will be expected to devote your time and in- 
terest to the task of upholding and furthering the 
standards and traditions of the fraternity of your 

In a few weeks, the doors of these Greek letter 
organizations will swing open and rushing will 
again be underway. The decision concerning fra- 
ternities represents an important crossroad in your 
whole future, and your choice consequently should 
be made with great care. These hints may assist 
you during rushing. In fairness to yourself, do not 
be "high-pressured" into committing yourself to one 
fraternity without visiting the rest of them before- 

Do not feel that you are a social outcast if you 
fail to receive a bid from the fraternity of your 
choice; fraternities have to make many snap judg- 
ments on rushees because of the large number be- 
ing rushed in such a short rush period. 

Know the financial set up of the fraternity in 
which you are interested — the dues may be beyond 
your means. 

Attempt to meet all of the Brothers when attend- 
ing a rush function in order to get an accurate 
picture of the fraternity. GOOD LUCK! 


Interfratewity Council 

President Bob Martel 

The local chapter of the Inter fraternity Council 
was founded in 1926 for the purpose of maintain- 
ing harmonious relations between the University 
and the Fraternities and among the fraternities them- 
selves. The Council also sponsors the annual inter- 
fraternity 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 presi- 
dent and an elected delegate from each of the eli- 
gible fraternities.

Panhellenk Creed 

"We, the fraternity undergraduate members, 
stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good 
health, for wholehearted cooperation with our col- 
lege's ideals for student life, for the maintenance of 
fine social standards, and for the serving, to the 
best of our ability, of our college community. Good 
College citizenship in the larger world of alumnae 
days is the ideal that shall guide our chapter activi- 

"We, the fraternity women of America, stand for 
preparation for service through the character build- 
ing inspired in the close contact and deep friend- 
ship of fraternity life. To us, fraternity life is not 
the enjoyment of special privileges but an oppor- 
tunity to prepare for wide and wise human service." 


Panhellenk Council 

President Lee Ault 

The purpose of the Panhellenic Council is the 
maintenance of a wholesome sorority spirit and 
inter-sorority relations within the University, to fur- 
ther sound scholarship and high social standards,

General Information 

General Information 

The following section is included to help solve or 
clarify many of the typical problems with which 
the new student is faced. 

Books and Supplies 

Textbooks and school supplies are available at the Stu- 
dent Supply Store, in the Administration Building base- 
ment. The Maryland Book Exchange, opposite the South 
Gate, also handles books and supplies. 

Campus Dress 

Very informal dress is the rule for classes, where clean- 
liness and neatness, not style, are the earmarks of good 
taste. In the evenings, clothes of little more formality are 
usually worn. Formals, blue jeans, swim suits and athletic 
clothes are worn only upon the appropriate occasions. 

Church Services 

Jewish Services are held Friday evenings at 7:30 at the 
Hillel Foundation, on Knox Road at the Washington-Balti- 
more Boulevard. Catholic Mass is held on Sunday at 9:15 
and 11 A. M. in Building EE. Protestant Services are held 
in the Administration Building Auditorium at 11 A. M. 
Sunday. Interdenominational Vesper Service is held on Sun- 
day at 6:30 P. M. in the Armory Lounge. 


Class Attendance 

Attendance at all class meetings is compulsory. Excuses 
for absences should be submitted to the office of the Dean 
of the college on the first day of return after a protracted 
illness. Further information is given in the Academic 

Counseling Services 

Assistant Dean of Men, Gilbert T. Walker acts as student 
counselor and helps students with personal problems. 
Academic and vocational guidance is provided by the 
Psychological Testing Bureau in Building DD. 


The Student and Faculty Directory, which gives the ad- 
dresses and academic classification of all students, is pub- 
lished shortly after registration and is available at the 
Student Supply Store. 

Distribution of Publications 

The Diamondback is available at stands in the Adminis- 
tration Building, the Library, the Engineering Building, the 
Arts and Sciences Building, and the Recreation Building 
on the days of publication at 9 A. M. The Old Line is 
delivered to dormitories, fraternity and sorority houses, and 
is available in the Administration Building and the Rec- 
reation Building on the day of publication. The Terrapin 
plan of distribution will be announced at the time of publi- 
cation. All three publications are free to students upon 
payment of the activity fee. 



In addition to the Dining Hall, students will find meals 
on campus in the Cafeteria in the Dining Hall basement 
and snacks in the Recreation Building. In College Park 
there are several places to eat, of varying caliber and price 


William Cooney, in the Dean of Men's office, will help 
and advise students who are seeking part-time jobs. 


The Infirmary is open six days a week from 8 A. M. until 
4:30 P. M. and on Sunday from 10 A. M. until noon. A 
nurse is on duty 24 hours a day and in emergencies students 
may call at any time.

10:00 P. M. Monday through Friday. On Saturday the 
hours are 7:30 A. M. until 5 P. M., and on Sunday 3 P. M.

ganizations are also delivered to these boxes.

Scholastic Requirenients 

A student must receive a passing grade in at least one- 
half of the credit hours for which he or she is registered. 
Additional information is given in the Academic Regula- 

Religious Counselor's Office 

Students seeking religious guidance will find a minister 
on call in the Religious Counselor's Office in the Adminis- 
tration Building basement during class hours. Information 
of campus and nearby church services is available here. 

Telegram Service 

Telegrams are delivered or telephoned to the residences 
of students, and therefore a complete address should be 
given on incoming telegrams. They may be sent at any pay

by the campus police force. Cars on campus are restricted 
to the parking areas. State police assist in the enforcement 
of these regulations. 

Veteran's Contact Officer 

The Veteran's Administration representative has an office 
in the basement of the Administration Building. 





Recreation Center 


Fast becoming the place to go on campus, the "Rec Hall," 
as it is affectionately known, opens its doors wide to day- 
dodgers and resident students alike twelve hours a day. 
"Meet you at the Rec Hall" is perhaps Joe and Jane Terp's 
favorite expression. 

Unwrapped only last December, the Rec Hall has since 
seen few days when shakes haven't passed over the Snack 
Bar, celery hasn"t been chomped in the Sandwich Room, 
or loungers been lacking in the Lounge. And, of course, 
the Game Room has been the scene of an unending parade 
of people who play checkers, people who play chess, people 
who shoot pool, and people who trump their partner's 
ace . . . 

A Few Extra Statistics . . . the Snack Bar handles close 
to 2,000 snack seekers a day . . . there are forty-five chairs 
plus a dozen davenports in the Lounge . . . the Meeting 
Room can hold seventy people holding seventy tea cups 
. . . the Rec Hall boasts one of the few women's lounges on 
campus . . . 

Located just a few steps from the Women's Field House, 
it is a university phenomenon in that it is the only Mary- 
land building that provides ashtrays for smokers. 


Cheer Leaders 

Head Cheerleader Elizabeth Simpson 

Nucleus of Maryland spirit is the battery of cheer 
leaders who conduct the Terp cheering sections in 
their songs and cheers. It is these cheer leaders 
who perform the task of instilling the traditional 
Maryland spirit throughout the student body. The 
cheerleading squad works in close cooperation with 
the Rally Committee, and the head cheerleader is a 
permanent member of the Executive Board of that 
body. Tryouts for the squad are held at the begin- 
ning of each football season. 

Pep Squad and Mascots 

The Pep Squad is an organization of tumblers 
who perform acrobatic stunts at Terp athletic con- 
tests. "Moe" and "Joe" Terp are the two Maryland 
mascots who cut Terrapin-like capers in Black and 
Gold, and Red and White costumes at Maryland 
athletic events. Both the Pep Squad and the Mas- 
cots are a part of the Maryland Rally Committee.
