MINION Lieutenant Colonel, Infantry, U. S. A. Class of '36 An inspiration to all who knew him - - he exemplifies the best the Unioersity has produced. Foreword 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 luck! 10 mW^ li^Olv^ [niV«^J^W Adm'mhtrathn '-'^ Board of Regents Chairman William P. Cole, 1949 Secretary...... Stanford Z.

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. Sincerely H. C. Byrd ^ President ADELE H. STAMP Dean of Women The Dean of Women provides guidance for all women students and in conjunction with the Women's League handles all matters of discipline. She coordinates the interests of all women students, handles matters of chaperonage at social functions, regulates sorority rushing in cooperation with the Panhellenic Council, and supervises the housing conditions of women students living both on and off campus. GEARY F. EPPLEY Dean of Men The Dean of Men furnishes helpful guidance and sympathetic counsel to male students in connection with any of their personal problems that they desire to bring to his attention. Usually these problems are in the nature of financial need, employment, and housing. His office also handles all matters relating to the discipline of male students in conjunction with the Men's League. Dean Eppley also serves as advisor on Student Finance to the Student Government Association. 17 Unioersity Calendar ,^,„ First Semester 1948 Sept. 20-24 Mon.-Fri Registration Sept. 27 Mon Instruction begins Oct. 21 Thurs Convocation Nov. 25 Thurs Thanksgiving Dec. 22 Wed Christmas recess 1949 Jan. 3 Mon Christmas recess ends Jan. 20 Thurs Inauguration Day Jan. 18-25 Tues.-Tues., inc.

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 ^ Louis tisenhauer President Student Government Association Executive Council President Louis Eisenhauer Vice-President Marshall Powell Secretary Eleanor Higgons Treasurer Frank Forster President of Mens League Harry Dow President of Women's League Mary Crapster President of Omicron Delta Kappa Henry Saylor President of Mortar Board Ethel Jongeneel Editor of the DIAMONDBACK Allen Bowers President of the Inter fraternity Council ....

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. 22 $. 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. 23 < 2 o U o 2 U CD X H CJCJ ^ o o<!

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 campus. The Dormitory Council serves in a disciplin- ary capacity for all violators of the Dormitory regulations. 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 office. 26 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 University. 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. 27 Class Officers Senior Class President Victor Turyn lice-President Malcolm Campbell Secretary Ethel Jonge.neel Treasurer David Roszel Mens League Representative (to be appointed) W'omens League Representative Germai.ne Margolis Historian Eleanor Harrington Sergeant-at-Arms Robert Rohrback Junior Class President George Cheely Vice-President Donald Mortimer Secretary Ann Sipp Treasurer Helen White Mens League Representative Morton Weston Women's League Representative Penny Perkins Historian Jean Culbert Sergeant-at-Arms Virginia Legg Sophomore Class President Robert Mann Vice-President Wayne Burgemeister Secretary Jean Askin Treasurer Lillian Howle Mens League Representative Daniel Framm Women's League Representative Jeanne Matthews Historian LaFon Beville Sergeant-at-Arms Mike Holofcener 28 s. nT' « y^ ,^%/ -. J9 ^ 1 History and ^xQdxWom History 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 share. 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. 30 Traditions 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. 31 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. 32 r \ >" »-J«. • " 5"^ - r * ' 1 Publications -S;|£"-" „.Ni=*' v)."'" .(<> 'Li^ 34 The Diamondback Editor Allen Bowers Managing Editors George Cheely Mark Coplin News Editors Harrison Hagemeyer Harry Ortiz Copy Editors Doris Harder William Kundin Sports Editor Bill Lewis Business Manager Clyde Houle Advertising Manager E.

Come in and introduce yourself. 39 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. Members of the Publications Board Faculty Students James H. Reid, Chairman William McDonald Jack Y. Bryan Allen Bowers William H. Hottel Frank Masterson Adele H. Stamp Art Cosing Louis Eisenhauer 40 I Organizations 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.

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. LACROSSE COACH JACK FABER 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.

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. RIFLE COACH HARLAND 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. 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.

Although not an exceptional record, it is far from bad and the coming season is expected to be even better. 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.

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.

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.

BENTON 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. f- H WEARERS OF THE "M Baseball Andrus, Julius Besley, Robert Brewer, George Cesky, Albert Condon, John Downs, William (co-mgr.)

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. 122 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. 123 Football Schedule 1948 * Sept. 25 Richmond Richmond, Va. *Oct. 2 Delaware Wilmington, Del.

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: 126 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 chapters. 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. 127 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 choice. 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- hand. 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! 128 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.

"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. 148 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. 149 Songs Alma Mater Words and music by Robert Kinney, '40 Hail! Alma Mater! Hail, to thee, Maryland!
