Histori) and Traditions 

From bronze Testudo keeping 
guard in front of the Coliseum to the 
ehimes in the tower of the Engineer- 
ing Building, Maryland's eampus 
stands as a tribute to higher edueation. 
As one of the oldest universities in the 
United States, it is steeped in spirit 
and tradition. The Tunnel, the \\ ish- 
ing Well, the historic Rossborough 
Inn, all are part of that tradition. 
They will be a part of your college 
career. The friendlv Hello Habit 
which has always been a Maryland 
custom will quickly orient you. The 
pep rallies, convocations and games 
will heighten your growing school 
spirit. You will pass on the history 
and tradition of Maryland to those 
future generations who will inhabit 
the campus. 

"The Pause that Refreshes" is 
habitual as students travel allurinfi k 
tunnel route up eampus 



The University of Maryland dates back to 1807, 
Avhen the first school ot the University, the College 
of Medicine, was founded in Baltimore. In the 
more than 1 10 years since its foimding, the Uni- 
versity has expanded, both physically and in its 
standards of education, until it now occupies a 
position as one of the leading universities in the 

After the College of Medicine was founded, there 
followed within a few years the establishment of 
several other professional schools to mark the first 
expansion of the University. The School of Uaw was 
added in 1823, the School' of Dentistry in 1882, the 
School of Nursing in 1889, and in 1904, the Mary- 
land College of Pharmacy completed the Baltimore 

At College Park, in 1856, Maryland State College, 
the first agricultural college in the United States 
and the second in the western hemisphere, was 
established under the name of the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College. The college was financed by the 
sale of stock at S25 a share. 

In 1862, this college became, in part, a state 
institution with the passage of the Uand Grant Act 
by Congress. It was one of the first schools to bene- 
fit from this act and subsequent federal aids to 

In 1920, the professional schools of the University 
in Baltimore, and the Maryland State College in 
College Park were merged to form what is now 
known as the University of Maryland. 


Unioersitif Seal 

Maryland's Great Seal, the oldest of the state 
seals, was sent to the province of Maryland in 1848 
by Lord Baltimore. More than 300 years old, the 
seal is the only state seal of strictly heraldic char- 
acter, for the other state seals bear emblems rep- 
resenting agriculture, commerce, or some related 

The escutcheon bears the Calvert and Crossland 
arms quartered. The first and fourth quarters are 
the Calvert Arms. The second and third quarters 
are from the Crossland, Baltimore's maternal arms. 
An earl's coronet and full-faced helmet are sur- 
mounted on the quarterings. These indicate Lord 
Baltimore's rank in America. The Calvert crest 
rests on the helmet. The escutcheon is supported on 
one side by the figure of a farmer, and on the other 
by that of a fisherman — symbols of each of Lord 
Baltimore's estates, Maryland and Avalon. Below 
the figures is the scroll bearing the Calvert motto: 
"Fatti Maschii Parole Femine," which means 
"Deeds are males; words, females." On a border 
encircling the seal is the legend: University of 
Maryland 1807 1856 1920. 



Maryland, like all colleges, has traditions that 
freshmen learn to love, and that others remember 
long after college days are over. 

When you walk across the campus you will notice 
the "Hello Habit" — a friendly custom of speaking to 
the students you meet. 

As soon as school starts, the football season be- 
gins; many traditions surround the Old Liner's love 
of sports and celebrations. Pep rallies before the 
game encourage school spirit; Testudo, the huge 
bronze mascot for the University who rests on his 
pedestal in front of the Coliseum, is found missing 
early in the season, is traced from school to school, 
and invariably returns just before a big game. 

Homecoming highlights the fall season, when old 
grads return for the game, a queen is crowned, 
fraternity and sorority houses are resplendent with 
decorations, all the women wear chrysanthemums 
and everyone attends the Homecoming Dance. The 
annual Freshmen-Sophomore tug-of-war over Paint 
Branch Creek precedes the game. 

The Rossborough Club presents its four formal 
dances during the year, featuring big-name bands 
from all over the country. 

Incidentally, all freshmen are reminded that a 
penny in the wishing well at the Rossborough Inn 
is guaranteed to make one's fondest dreams come 
true I 


The Autumn Carnival, with a musical revue, a 
queen and a dance, takes place later in the fall. 
Throughout the year, All-Maryland dances, which 
are given free for the student body, are held. At 
Christmas time a pageant is held, following the 
lighting of a Christmas tree. During the week 
preceeding Christinas vacation, carols sound out on 
the campus between classes. These carols are 
sounded from the tower of Morrill Hall. 

When spring comes, one of the important events 
is the Interfralernity Sing, followed by May Day, 
one of the most colorful spectacles at the Uni- 
versity. The May Queen's Crowning, the tapping 
of outstanding junior women by Mortar Board, 
and a Pageant presented to entertain the Queen 
are among the occurences. 

At this time, too, one of Maryland's keenest rivals 
Johns Hopkins, is encountered in the annual 
Lacrosse game between the two schools. This event 
is one of the more rousing events of the athletic 
year. Campaigning and electioneering for student 
government and class offices make very lively 
campus elections each spring. 

The year is not complete without a visit to the 
Tunnel. Tradition has it that a couple must kiss on 
their first trip through this secluded spot. 

Just before graduation the annual Honors and 
Awards Assembly is held, in which recognition of 
scholarship, sports, R.O.T.C., and other phases of 
University life is given. 

With graduation exercises, the seniors leave the 
University life behind them but keep its memories 
in their hearts. 



The Administration, headed by 
President of the University Dr. H. C. 
Byrd, is composed of college deans, 
department heads, and personnel of 
the University. The general policies 
of the University of Maryland are 
the direct concern of this body. The 
official spokesman of the University, 
the Administration, more than any 
other single organization, represents 
the college to the public. These peo- 
ple will guide your college for the 
next four years. Avail yourself of the 
opportunity to go in and meet them 
and talk to them. 

The Administration Building houses 
the offices of the President, Dean of 
Men, registrar and other offices of 
vital University concern and serves as 
a center of between-classes activitv. 

There never is a (lull moment around 
Administration Buildings nerve k 
center of campus life 


To The Freshmen Students: 

First, let me, as President of the University, ex- 
tend to you a Avelcome, This welcome means that 
the whole University not only accepts you graciously 
as students, hut admits you as a memher of the 
University of Maryland family, with all that ad- 
mission to family life implies. This means particular- 
ly that the administrative officers of the University 
and members of the faculty, and hundreds of stu- 
dents also, are willing and glad to extend to you 
help at any time that you need help. 

The University of Maryland is not a country 
club. It is a place where hard and difficult routines 
must be met and conquered if you are to achieve 
the education for which you entered the University. 
At the same time, it is true that ^'All work and no 
play make Jack a dull boy," and there are many 
activities, recreational and intellectual, in which 
you mav engage. Make yourself a part of student 

The University of Maryland is the state uni- 
versity of Maryland. Its operations extend through- 
out the whole state, and I hope thai you will take 
time to learn what the University is and what it is 

I hope today is the beginning of a period of great 
accomplishment for you, and shall look forward to 
the time when vou will receive your diploma, as a 
mark of vour first great success in life.

Student activities are controlled hy 
the S. G. A., and are financed for the 
most part by the activities fee which 
is paid by all students in the Uni- 
versity. From this fee, the money is 
prorated to the various activities; the 
payment of this fee entitles a stu- 
dent to attend all S. G. A. -spon-

In welcoming you to our campus I would like to

Elections for Student Government Association 
and class officers are held in the spring. Two vot- 
ings take place — the primary and the final. In 
recent years Maryland s elections have come to be 
as colorfidly flamboyant as national presidential 
elections. Any and all methods are used by candi- 
dates and their backers to secure votes. 

About two weeks before elections, posters, pic- 
tures, and handbills begin to appear. Rallies and 
speeches are also part of the campaign to win votes. 
On the day of elections circus animals, floats, and 
pretty girls appear to lure the voters to the polls. 
When election day is over, weary assistants count 
the votes, weary voters forget the matter, and 
weary candidates stay up till early morning hours to 
learn the results. Installation of the new officers 
takes place a few weeks later. 


The constitution for the Student Government 
Association is being revised at the present time by 
a student committee. Clyde Houle, appointed by 
SGA President Joe Tydings, heads the committee 
as chairtnan. The revised constitution will be sub- 
mitted to the students for approval in a referendum 
in the fall. Freshmen are urged to participate in 
these elections. Read the constitution carefully and 
then cast your vote. It's your Student Government,

Message from 


Men's League 

Freshman Men: 

The Men's League welcomes you to the University 
of Maryland. 

Constantly functioning in your behalf, the Exe- 
cutive Council of the Men's League looks forward 
to working with you for the best interests of all. 
We want to improve our campus in any practical 
way, and your suggestions will be appreciated. 

On the other hand, the Dormitory Council of the 
Men's League stands ready to reprimand and punish 
any offenders of the dormitory regulations. 

You will soon elect a representative to the League. 
See that he expresses your ideas and upholds your 

Any member of the League will be happy to see 
you at any time about your problems. 


Men's League 

President Morton Weston 

Vice President Elmer Wingate 

The Men's League is the representative body 
which serves the male students of the University in 
its capacity as one of the three divisions of the Stu- 
dent Government Association. There are two di- 
visions of the League — the Executive Council and 
the Dormitory Council. 

The Executive Council functions directly for the 
benelit of the men students. It trys to maintain a 
high standard in the living conditions of the dormi- 
tories and the campus. In this respect it attempts to 
gain the cooperation of the dormitory residents in 
keeping the maintenance and repair requirements as 
low as possible through careful and thoughtful use 
of the buildings and equipment. 

The League works with the Dean of Men in 
planning dormitory improvements and additions 
which will make your stay at the University more 
comfortable and safe. Each year the Council awards 
a bronze cup to the outstanding male graduate, 
based on character, achievement, and service to the 

The Executive Council is composed of the presi- 
dent, vice-president, and representatives of each 
class (all elected by the male student body), and 
a recording secretary, corresponding secretary, In- 


lerrralernity Council representative. Independent 
Students' Association representative, and the chair 
man of the Dormitory Council. 

The Dormitory Council serves as a discipHnary 
board for offenders of the dormitory regulations 
and also works to encourage dormitory activity and 
comradeship through the proctors. 

The proctors are older students who maintain 
order and discipline in the dormitories, and serve 
as advisors and counsellors to the students. They 
see to it that quiet hours are observed in the eve- 
ning for studying, that rooms are kept clean, beds 
made, and health standards in general upheld, that 
the other dormitory regulations are not broken, and 
that the dormitory is in good condition. 

The housemothers help the proctors in their job 
and can be consulted at any time for advice on 
social and school problems. If you are puzzled 
about questions concerning campus life, they will 
be glad to assist you. 

Only by getting to know your fellow dormitory 
residents and by associating with them socially will 
you derive the most from dormitory life. Living 
with a group of men of your own age and interests 
is a great experience and can add to your personality 
a social broadening that is obtainable nowhere else. 
Take part in your dormitory and campus activities, 
and soon you will have accumulated riches worth 
far more than the time and effort put forth. 


The Men's League office is located in Room 12 of 
Dormitory "O". Meetings are held every two 
weeks, at which all men students are welcome. 

The following are some regulations of the men's 

Students will be held responsible for rooms 
being swept and kept clean at all times. Quiet hours 
will be observed from 7:30 p. m. to 7 a. m., except on 
Saturday nights. At no time will there be un- 
necessary noise or disorder in the dormitories. 

Radios are not to be played so loud that they dis- 
turb others, and gambling and intoxicating bever- 
ages will not be permitted in the dormitories. Cook 
ing, pets, and firearms are also not allowed in the 
residences. The University is not responsible for 
money or other valuables left in rooms. Students are 
cautioned to keep their rooms locked at all times. 

Public telephones are located in Dormitories 
E, G, L, Calvert Hall '"A" Section, and in the 
temporary residences. There is a phone connected 
with the University switchboard in each of the 
dormitory offices. Any messages coming on the 
phone for students will be delivered to their rooms, 
but no students will be called to the telephone. 

Students are held financially responsible for all 
damage to their rooms except depreciation by 
ordinary usage. Walls must not be defaced. Pen 
nants, calendars, and the like may be displayed if 
scotch tape or stickers are used. I\o nails will be 


Message from 


Women's League 

As president of the Women's League, I would 
like to Avclcome you to your new home, the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. During your stay here, you 
will come in contact with us many times, and we 
hope that we shall be able to be of help to you. If a 
problem should arise, you may feel free to see us 
about it at the Women's League office in the]Dean 
of Women's Building. (Office hours will be an- 
nounced in the near future.) While we are to be of 
service to you, we would also like for you to be of 
equal service to us. During the past year the 
Somen's League Revision Committee formulated a 
new constitution, which was approved last spring 
by the women students. They gave their approval 
to put the proposed constitution into effect this fall 
on an experimental basis. 


Women's League 

President Katie Kelly 

J ire-President Penme Perkins 

Secretary AiVNE VoN Schwerdtner 

Treasurer Elizabeth Smith 

Women's League is the representative body for 
the University's women students, and all women 
students are members of the organization. 

As a new student you will lind that you encounter 
the League often in your University life, for it 
formulates, administers, and interprets the rules 
governing women students. If you are a campus resi- 
dent you will see the important role the League plays 
in dormitory life. It conducts house meetings, 
assists the dormitory housemothers, and handles 
violations of rules governing resident women. 

Women's League also participates actively in 
campus programs. During the past year it has 
sponsored several entertainments, including a tea 
and a progressive party for all women's dormitories. 
It also works with junior women on May Day. 

The League is a self-governing organization, with 
representatives from each house for women stu- 
dents on or near campus, and froin the daydodgers. 
The officers of the League are elected by the women 
students, and meetings are open to all women. Busi- 
ness meetings are held once a week, at which sub- 
jects vital to the women of the campus are discussed. 

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. 

This year women students will be governed under 
a revised constitution, which was submitted by last 
year's Women's League. In February a committee 
will be appointed for the purpose of strengthening, 
discarding, or completely changing any part of the 
constitution w hich proves itself impractical. In the 
spring elections it is hoped that the women students 
w ill be ready to formally adopt the improved con- 

Each year the Women's League publishes a pam- 
phlet of regulations concerning the women who live 
on campus. The regulations are revised annually 
by the League, under the guidance of the Dean of 
Women, to eliminate existing fallacies and to achieve 
a practical set of rules. 

An important addition to the new constitution is 
the establishment of a Women's Student Govern- 
ment Association Executive Board. This will be 
composed of representatives and presidents of vari- 
ous organizations of interest to campus women. A 
Judicial Board is also provided for under the new 
constitution. The board is to consist of the presi- 
dent of W.S.G.A., two elected freshmen, sophomores, 
juniors, and seniors, and the faculty sponsor. 

A third provision is for a House of Representatives 
which shall be composed of one elected representa- 
tive for every twenty women living in the sorority 
houses and residence halls, faculty sponsor, and one 
freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior woman to 


represent the daydodgers. This group is responsible 
for all legislative measures concerning the welfare 
of women students. 

In addition to these three governing bodies, there 
are three committees to assist. They are the Resi- 
dence Committee, the Social Committee, and the 
Activities Committee. These committees are to 
support and cooperate with the Executive and Judi- 
cial Boards, and the House of Representatives. 

The League is chiefly concerned with campus resi- 
dents, but it is interested in encouraging more 
active participation of the commuting women stu- 
dents. Under the new constitution these women 
will have more opportunity for taking part in cam- 
pus life. 

Maryland Traditions 

I. There will be no smoking at dances, in class- 
rooms, or any other place on campus except in 
the following:

B. Rest rooms in the class buildings,

II. Slacks, blue jeans, and shorts are to be Avorn 
only in active sports, in one's room, and when

Dean of Women. 



Now that you are beginning voiir 
college life, there is a goal for whieh 
you will want to strive . . . that of 
high scholarship. The rewards of this 
goal are many. It brings the respect 
of classmates, as well as personal satis- 
faction. There is yet an added thrill 
. . . the initiation into an honorary 

In the past year two new honorary 
organizations have been added to the 
ranks of those already on the Uni- 
versity of Maryland campus, bring- 
ing the total number to twenty -five. 

Every year the most outstanding 
students in each field are tapped to 
take their place among those already 
wearing the key of achievement. The 
thrill of being tapped for an honorary 
fraternity may provide one of the 
most memorable occasions of your 
college career.

Studi) Hints 

As a collenje fresliman, you will lintl ihe study 
habits you form now of greatest importance in the 
coming four years. "Planned and plenty"' (two 
hours' study for each hour of class is recommended 
for best results), good study habits bring results. 
Some points to help you get that point average are: 

1 — Have a study schedule and slick to it! 

2 — Have a definite place in which to study, a 

time with the fewest distractions possible. 
3 — Don't cram! Read the material before the 

lecture — you'll find class more interesting.

F\mn(led before the first World War, Pershing Rifles 
companies have been organized in ROTC units 
throughout ihe country to recognize miUtary ex- 
cellence, [n ihe annual competition against Persh- 
ing Rifles units from other universities, the Mary- 
land Pershing Rifles Company has repeatedly won 
highest honors. The Pershing Rifles have gained 
an outstanding position on the campus through 
their services as honor guards and ushers at many 
special functions, and they may be easily identified 
by their blue and white lanyards and white gloves.

Students at Maryland have four 
publications, the Diamondhark news- 
paper, the Old Line magazine, the 
Terrapin annual, and the freshman 
M Book. 

These publications are produced by 
students and maintain the highest 
standards of accuracy, interest, and 
appeal. They have consistently been 
among the foremost in the country, 
and both the Diamondback and the 
Terrapin last year won the award of 
Pi Delta Epsilon as the best pidilica- 
tions in their class. 

Students are appointed to positions 
on these publications after having ex- 
hibited interest and diligence in work 
assigned in minor positions. 

Suggestions and help from the stu- 
dent bodv are requested and desired 
by all student publications.

The M Book, the freshman handbook, is published 
once a year lor the incoming freshmen. The staff, 
appointed in the late spring, spends the last weeks 
of the spring semester and the first few weeks of 
summer vacation in preparation of the book. 

This year, for the first time, the M Book has 
been mailed to the freshmen. Tt is the sincere wish 
of the staff that the book may prove of value to the 
Class of 19S3 in its early days at Marvland.

Drama and Music 

Lnder the spell of greasepaint and 
footlights, university students last 
semester produced four major pro- 
ductions, for which they received 
overwhelming acclaim. Opportunities 
for freshmen in this vear's dramatics 
program are excellent; the student 
should be reminded, though, that 
failure to land a part on the first try 
is no indication of future discourage- 
ment. Keep trying I The University 
Theatre needs interested people, both 
on stage and backstage. 

Both the Men's Glee Club and the

new voices. The increasing recogni- 
tion brought to both groups should 
prove a challenge to those students 
who enjov choral singing.

University Theatre 

With a season lasting from September to May, 
the University Theatre contains the fullest educa- 
tional, cultural, and entertainment-giving facilities

show each semester. Open try-outs are held for 
each production, to which all interested students 
are welcomed.

two major productions are eligible to join the Uni- 
versity Theatre. The amount and calibre of work 
they have done is surveyed by the Executive Council 
and the names are voted upon by the entire group.

The purpose of the organization is to present 
opportunities to the student to learn all phases 
of play production and to provide experienced per- 
sonnel for the handling of each show. All functions 
of the theatre are supervised by trained faculty 
members in conjunction with courses taught under 
the Department of Speech and Dramatic Arts. 

In recent seasons the University Theatre has 
successfully staged such shows as "Volpone,'' 
"Arsenic and Old Lace," '"Elizabeth the Queen," 
"Our Town," and "The Taming of the Shrew." The

Much of the value of college life 
arises from the benefits of group parti- 
cipation. Here the student has the 
opportunity to become acquainted 
with his fellow students, to learn 
to work with them and to organize 
and carry out programs. The vital 
center of such activity at Maryland 
is the field of extracurricular activi- 
ties. Choose one of the campus groups

athletic, departmental or purely so- 
cial, your participation in it w ill serve

In a few weeks, the doors of the 
Greek letter organizations will swing 
open, and rushing will again be under- 
way. The decision concerning frater- 
nities represents an important cross- 
road in your college life, and your 
choice, consequently, should be made 
with great care. In fairness to your- 
self, do not be "high-pressured" into 
committing yourself to one fraternity 
without visiting others. Know the 
financial setup of the fraternity in 
which vou are interested. Attempt 
to meet all of the Brothers at the rush 
functions before committing yourself. 

Do not feel that you are a social 
outcast if vou fail to receive a bid from 
the fraternitv of your choice. Be- 
cause of the large numbers of rushees, 
fraternities must make snap judg- 
ments. If \ ou fail the first time, don't 
be discouraged, try again.

Fraternity Criteria 

The National Inlei liateriiily Conference was 
fouiuled in 1008 for the pnrpose of (liscussinjr ques- 
tions of mutual interest ami 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 memhership. Its an- 
nual conferences are atlendetl hy about three himd- 
red arul (ifty officers and alumni of the various 
fraternities and about lifty <leans of men and college 
presidents. It sponsors the National Lnderoraduate 
Councils on campuses all over the United States 
an<l Canada, which meet in conjunction with the 
Conference itself. It publishes a Year Book, the 
report of its annual meetinji, in which much valuable 
information about collese fraternity life is included. 

In the fall of 1031, the Executive Committee of 
the Conference and the Educational Advisory Conn 
cil reduced to writing the following criteria in order 
further to advance co-operation between fraternities 
and educational institutions. The statement was 
subsecpienlly approved by the American Associa- 
tion of Deans and Advisers of Men and by the Con- 
ference itself. It reads as follows: 

We consider the fraternity responsible for a posi- 
tive contribution to the primary functions of the 
colleges and imiversities, and therefore under an 
obligation to encourage the most complete personal 
development of its members, intellectual, physical 
and s<»cial. Therefore, we declare: 

1. That the ohjerlives and activities of tlie 
fraternity should he in entire accord with the aims 
and purposes of the institutions at which it has 

2. That the primary loyally 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 in- 
volves 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 shouM create an atmos- 
phere which will stimulate substantial intellectual 
progress and superior intellectual achieveinent. 

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

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

These criteria should be applied in close co-opera- 
tion with the administrative authorities of the in- 
stitution. Detailefl methods of application will 
necessarily vary in accordance with local condi- 
tions. It is the purpose of the National Inter- 
fraternitv Conference to offer <letailed suggestions, 
after further studv and investigation, regarding 
practical steps to make this co-operation effective.

Location of 
Fraternity and 
Sorority Houses 


To most girls, the social side of 
college life is represented by a 
sorority. On the 18th of September 
many of you will be knocking upon 
the door of close friendship and group 
enjoyment. Remember to be natural. 
Dont allow yourself to be awed by 
large houses or big groups; rather, 
choose personalities which please you. 
Be sure that you can meet the finan- 
cial obligations of the sorority of 
your choice. 

If you do not '^'make" the sorority 
of your choice, don't be disheartened. 
Sororities are limited by a quota 
system and therefore sometimes over- 
look potentially fine members. Show 
that vou are interested, and. above 
all, remember that your success or 
failure in college depends not upon a 
sorority, but upon vourself.

Despite the loss of All -Conference backlield ace, 
Lu Gambino, due to a conference ruling, the black 
and gold forces of "Sunny Jim*" Tatuni posted 
a record of six and four at the close of last season. 
With a line anchored by such stalwarts as Bob Ward 
and Ray Krouse, Elmer Wingate and Capt. Gene 
Kinney, the Terrapins had one of the finest defensive 
teams in the nation. With an exceptionally fine 
Freshman team moving up. Coach Tatum should be 
able to weld together a team which will continue its 
winning w ays.

swept through their dual season, and numbered 
among their victims the sharpshooters of Army, 
Navy, Georgetown, and George Washington.

Freshman Sports 

Every freshman is urged to come out for the fresh- 
man sport in which he is most proficient. Every 
man has an equal chance to make the team, and per- 
formance, rather than high-school press notices, de- 
cides the starting line up. The Freshman football 
team will begin practice immediately upon reg- 
istration and each successive Freshman sport will 
have its opening date fully publicized. Following 
is a list of the records of Maryland's "Little Terp'" 
squads over the past vear. 

Frosh Football 

Coached bv Tennessee's great blocking back of the 
early 40*s, Bill Meek, the PVosh Eleven dropped 
an early contest to ^ illiam and Marv after only 
six days practice and then proceeded to steam roll 
opposition for the remainder of the season. Among 
the teams which fell before the powerful Terp 
machine were \t est \ irginia. Georgetown, G. ^ . U.. 
and Fork Union. The backfield was sparked by the 
spectacular play of halfbacks Ed Modzelewski. 
Lynn Davis and Buck Early, as well as by the fine 
play of quarterbacks Andy McDonald and George 
Howard. Play on the line was outstanding with 
particular mention going to iruards Rav Bender and 
Bill Malelzkv. Tackles Chic Frv. Ed O'Connor and 
.]oe Moss, and ends Hank Fox and Clarence Brawlev. 


Frosh Track 

The cross country team was undefeated in dual 
competition, while the track squad won one and lost 
one. Coach Jim Kehoe's runners will get a chance 
to improve a strong varsity aggregation hoth in 
track and cross country lor the coming sessions. 

Frosh Soccer 

A freshman soccer team represented the Uni- 
versity for the first time since the war. Coached by 
Dick Cleveland, the frosh have a line account of 
themselves and served notice to the varsity that 
they would be plenty of competition for starling 
positions this fall. 

Frosh Wrestling 

When the Little Terp grapplers had all assembled t 
Coach Krouse foimd that he had some better than 
average wrestlers. Among the outstanding lads to 
make the team were Dennis Psoras. Harvey Yonce. 
Joe Adleberg and Alex Papavasiliou. 

Freshman Boxing 

Coach Frank Cronin's Boxers won both of their 
matches, defeating Virginia Frosh and Charlotte 
Hall by wide margins. Fred Carnesale, George 
Psoras, Vern Russell. Bill (TBrien, John Martone, 
George Fuller and Ed Wienefeld led the mitmen to 
their victories. 


Frosh Baseball 

Highliglited by a no-hit, no-run game pitchetl by 
Gordr)n Kessler, the freshmen baseball team fin- 
ished their eleven game schedule without a defeat. 
The team, under the guidance of Coach Ai Pobiak, 
won four of their samcs via the shutout route. 

Frosh Basketball 

When the season was over, the freshman has - 
keteers had an exceptionally fine record sporting 
twelve victories against only one loss. The final 
contest of the year was dropped to the Naval 
Academy's plebes .51-49. Among the outstanding 
prospects on the team were Dick Koffenberger, 
Andy McDonald and George Howard. 

Frosh Rifle Team 

The freshman rifle squad had an unusually large 
turnout, and among them Colonel Griswald and Sgt. 
Norris found some fine shots. Carrie MacDonald 
was the only coed on the Freshman team. 

Frosh Tennis 

The tennis squad under Coach Doyle Royal lost 
its three outings. The top three men were Yale 
Klugman, Mort Pollack and John Magnan. 


Frosh Lacrosse 

The Little Terps stickmen had an interesting it 
not sensational season under the tutelage of Tommy 
Mont, former star athlete at the University in foot- 
ball as well as lacrosse. Although the team had a 
record of only 2 wins against 3 losses, a number of 
promising stickmen showed potentialities for their 
varsity careers. Among these were defenseman Ted 
Gounaris, midfielders Tamburello and Hubbell, 
an<l attackmen Skip Young and Billy Sadtler. 

Frosh Golf 

The freshmen golfers, under Coach Frank Cronin, 
turned in a fine season. Led by Bob Miller and 
Stan Mouser, the up and coming frosh linksmen will 
be called upon to fill the vacancies on the varsity 
left bv the graduating seniors. 

1950 Freshmen / 

All freshman sports are stressed at ATaryland. 

These are the major frosh athletic teams and what 
they accomplished last year. What the records of 
the' frosh teams will show during 1949-1950 will 
♦lepend on the incoming freshman class. The athletic 
department as well as the University urges every 
ing frosh to report for practice when the call 


for can<lidates of his respective sport goes out. 


Men's Intramurals 

The objective of the Intramural Department is to 
formulate a recreational program, broad in scope, 
that will fully meet the demands of every student in 
the University. 

Under the direction of Jim Kehoe, the following 
sports have been placed in the program: badminton, 
basketball, basketball foul shooting, boxing, bowling, 
cross country, golf, gymnastics, horseshoes, soft- 
ball, table tennis, touch football, track, vollevball, 
and wrestling. There are approximately 70 teams 
in some competitions. The sports are open to both 
fraternity and non-fraternity men. Coaches for the 
various athletic divisions are present at some of the 
intramurals to look for possibilities in the varsity 

Intramural winners in the various colleges often 
stage tournaments. The Cumberland Comets, 
Maryland's intramural basketball champions two 
years in succession, defeated Georgetown's in- 
tramural champions last spring. 

There are two divisions in men's intramurals — a 
fraternity division, and an open league for the 
non-fraternity men. At the end of the year a cup 
is given to the fraternity amassing the most points. 
Gold medals are presented to the members of the 
winning team and the individual victors, while 
silver awards go to those who finish second. 


Women s Director 
Dorothy Deach \ 


Women's Intramurals 

The Women's Physical Education Department, 
along with the cooperation and assistance of the 
Women's Recreational Association, a student or- 
ganization made up mainly of physical education 
majors, establishes the intramural program. 

The program is so arranged that there are sched- 
uled activities from the commencing of classes in 
September until late in May. These activities are 
varied so as to include all of the popular sports. 
The women's intramurals are under the direction of 
\iiss Dorothy Deach. 

Tournaments in hockey, howling, basketball, 
volleyball, and badminton are sponsored bv the Wo- 
men's Recreation Association. Teams representing 
the sororities, women's dormitoriss, daydodgers, and 
faculty are entered in these contests and annually 
play out tournaments for campus championship.
