Customs and Spirit 

From bronze Testudo keeping 
guard in front of the Coliseum to the 
chimes in the tower of the Old En- 
gineering Building, Maryland's cam- 
pus stands as a tribute to higher edu- 
cation. As one of the oldest universi- 
ties in the United States, it is steeped 
in spirit and tradition. The Tunnel, 
the Wishing ^ ell, the historic Ross- 
borough Inn, all are part of that 
tradition. They will be a part of your 
college career. The friendly "Hello 
Habit" which has always been a 
Maryland custom will quickly orient 
vou. The pep rallies, convocations 
and games will heighten your grow- 
ing school spirit. You will pass on 
the history and tradition of Maryland 
to those future generations who will 
inhabit the campus.

expansion of the University. The School of Law was

School of Nursintr in 1889, and in 1904, the Mary- 
land College of Pharmacy completed the Baltimore 

At College Park, in 1836, Maryland State College, 
the lirst Agricultural college in the I nited States 
and the second in the western hemisphere, was 
estahlished under the name (A the Mar\land Agri- 
cidtural College. The college was (inan<'e<l h> the 
sale of stock at 82o a share. 

In 1862, this college hecame. in pari, a stale 
institution with the passage of the Land (rratil \ct 
hv Congress. It was one of the lirst schools to hene- 
lit from this act and suhsecpienl federal aids l<> 

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


University Seal 

Maryland's Great Seal, the oldest of the state 
seals, >\as sent to the province of Maryland in 1648 
hv Lord Baltimore. More than 300 years old, the 
seal is the only state seal of strictly heraldic char- 
acter, for the other slate seals hear emblems rep- 
resenting agriculture, commerce, or some related 

The escutcheon bears the Calvert and Crossland 
arms qiiartere<l. The first and fourth quarters are 
the Calvert Arms. The second and third quarters 
are from the Crossland, Baltimore's maternal arms. 
An earPs 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 bv the figure of a farmer, and on the other 
l>v 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, female." On a border 
encircling the seal is the legend: Universitv of 
Maryland 1807 1856 .1920. 


Maryland, like all collej^es, has traditions that 
freshmen learn to love, and that others reniemher 
long after college days are over. 

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

As soon as school starts, the football season 
begins; many traditions surround the OUl Twiner's 
love of sports and celebrations. Pep rallies before the 
game encourage school spirit; Tesludo, the huge 
bronze mascot for the University who rests on his 
pedestal in front of the Coliseum, is found missing 
earlv 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 resplendet wilhn 
decorations, all the women wear chrysanthemums 
and everyone attends the Homecoming Dance. The 
annual Freshmen-Sophomore lug-of-war over l*aint 
liranch Creek precedes the gaiue. 

The Kossborough (^lub presents its four formal 
dances during the year, featuring big-name bands 
from all over the country. 

Incidentallv, all freshmen are reminded that a 
pennv in the wishing well at the Kossborough Inn 
is guaranteed to make one's fonilest dreams come 

The Autunin (>arnival, with a nuisical revue, a 
<pieen and a dan<e, 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 prc- 
cedintT Christmas vacation, carols sound out on 
the campus between classes. These carols arc 
sounded from the tower of Morrill Hall. 

When spring comes, one of the important events 
is the Interfraternity Sing, followed by May Day, 
one of the most colorful spectacles at the University. 
The May Queen's Crowning, the tapping of out- 
standing" junior women by Mortar Board, and a 
Pageant presented to entertain the Queen are 
among the occurrences. 

At this time 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 

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 had 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, A.F.R.O.T.C., publications 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.

To Members of the First Year Class: 

Beginning; a freshman year in the University of 
Maryland is entering a new Ufe. Theoretically, the 
University's educational program is attuned to the 
secondary school program. In one respect, this is 
the case, but in some other respects there is a wide 
gulf between the two. 

The student entering the University finds himself 
in an almost completely independent position. 
Boys and girls suddenly become men and women. 
To you young men and women who are entering the 
University of Maryland I extend a welcome which 
not only holds for the present, but will last through- 
out the rest of your lives. 

It is my job as President of the University, and 
the duty of all members of the Faculty and the Staff, 
to help you orient yourselves to new conditions. 
You will find that the upper class students, also, 
will be more than glad to aid you. Seek their help, 
ask the aid and direction of anybody that you see, 
when vou do not know what to do. Ask freely any 
questions that you may wish to ask, even if some 
of them seem very simple. 

We all w elcome you to the University of Maryland 
family, and as members of the University of Mary- 
land family we are all mutually obligated to help 
one another. My office door is always open. If 
you feel, at any time, that you want my advice, 
walk in and such advice as I have to offer will be 
freely given. 

My best wishes to yoii all.

Student Government 

The Stiulenl Government Associa- 
tion consists ol tliree divisions: the 
Executive Council, the Men's League, 
and the \'i omen's League. The Coun- 
cil is the supreme governing bod\ : 
and the Leagues decide on and en- 
force all campus regulations. 

Student activities are controlled by 
the S.G.A. and are financed for the 
most part h\ 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 ol this fee entitles a student 
to attend all S.G.A. -sponsored activ- 
ities and the bi-monthly meetings. 
The actual work of S.G.A. is carried 
on by committees, the major ones 
being listed in th<' organizational 
chart on page 12.

Message from 



S.G.A. President 

It is with great pride that I welcome the freshmen 
and new students to the University of Maryland. 
On behalf of the Student Government Association, 
I would like to sincerely invite each of you to be- 
come an interested member of our organization, for 
only with your help and cooperation will the S.G.A. 
be able to grow and serve you better during your 
college life. 

Through appropriations, the S.G.A. controls pub- 
lications, choruses. University Theatre, and other 
campus activities. Your participation in these 
student organizations is expected and wanted, and 
your support of them is the immediate benefit you 
receive from the S.G.A. 

Therefore, with the rest of the student body, may 
I extend to you best wishes for an instructive and 
stimulating four years. 



Elections for Student Government Association 
and Class officers are held in the sprint;;. Two votings 
take place — the primary and the llnal. In recent 
years Maryland's elections have come to be as 
colorfully llambouyanl as national presidential elec- 
tions. Any and all methods are used by candidates 
and their backers to secure votes. 

About two weeks before elections, posters, pic- 
tures, and handbills bejiin 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 of the Student Government Asso- 
ciation has just recently been revised. The new 
constitution which was voted on by the students 
during the Spring of 19.^0 gives a belter representa- 
tion of the students on the group that governs them. 
Any student who wishes to read this constitution can 
obtain a copy at the Student (iovernment Associa- 
tion oflice which is located in the basement of the 
Administration Building.

Men's League 

Men's League extends to you a hear I y welcome 
to the University of Maryland. 

The Executive Council of the Men's League, 
working in conjunction with the Dean of Men, con- 
cerns itself with the problems of male students and 
the general improvement of the campus. We look 
forward to working with you, and any practical 
suggestions will be appreciated. 

The Dormitory Council serves in a disciplinary 
capacity for all violators of the dormitory codes, 
which will he explained further in the following 

You will shortly elect a freshman representative 
to the League. Make certain he represents your 
views and ideas. 

As your president and counselor, I would like to 
invite you to see me, or any other member of the 
League, about your problems. 


Men's League 

President Herb Vitt 

f ice President Frank Long 

Men's League is the repiesentative body which 
serves the men students of the University in its 
capacity as one of the three divisions of the Student 
Government Association. There are two divisions of 
the League— the Executive Council and the Dormi- 
tory Council. 

The Executive Council functions directly for the 
benefit of the men students. It trys to maintain a 
high standard of living conditions in the dormitories 
and the campus. In this respect it attempts to gain 
the cooperation of the dormitory residents in keep- 
ing 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 plan- 
ning dormitory improvements and additions which 
\>ill make your stay at the University more com- 
fortable 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- 

lerfraternity Council r^pre^^elltative, Independent 
Student's Association representalive. and llie chair- 
man of the Dormitory Council. 

The Dormitory Council serves as a <lisciplinary 
hoard for offenders of the dormitory re<i[ulalions and 
also works to encourage dormitory activity and 
comradeship through the proctors. 

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

The housemothers help the proctors in their jobs 
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 campuA activities 
and soon vou 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 are welcome. 

The following are some regulations of the men's 

Students will be held responsible for rooms be- 
ing 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 
disturb others, and gambling and intoxicating 
beverages will not be permitted in the dormitories. 
Cooking, 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 

Public telephones are located in Dormitories 
E, G, L, Calvert Hall "A" Section, and in the tem- 
porary residences. There is a phone connected with 
the University sw itchboard in each of the dormitory 
offices. Any messages coming on the phone for 
students will be delivered to their rooms, but no 
student 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. No nails will be

Women's League 

On behalf of the Women's League, I should like 
to extend a hearty welcome to you. One of the major 
objectives of the League, which deals with prob- 
lems closely associated with women students, is to 
provide balanced and harmonious living with a 
minimum of regulation. The attainment of such a 
goal depends primarily upon you and your interest 
and participation in women's student government. 

Please feel free to see us at any time in regard 
to your problems and suggestions.

W omen's League is the repieseiitalive body lor 
the University's uonien students, and all women 
are members of the organization. 

\^ a new student, von will lind that you encounter 
the Leajiue often iii vour University hie, lor it 
fornudates, administers, an.l interprets the rules 
governing women students. M you are a campus 
Resident vou will see the important role the League 
plavs in dormitory life. It <-omhicls lumse nieetmgs, 
assists the <lorniitorv housemothers, and handles 
violatiims of rules governing resident women. 

Woujens League also participates actively m 
campus programs. During the past year .t has spon- 
sored an All-\Iarylan<l Dance. It also works with 
junior women on May Day. 

The League is a self-governing organization, 
with representatives from each house lor women 
students on or near campus, and Ironi the day- 
.lod-ers. The olTi<ers of the League are elected hv 
the women shidenls. and meetings are open to all 


Business ineetino;s are held once a ^veek at \vhirh 
subjects vital to the women of the campus are dis- 

Rules, violations, judgments, plans for social 
calendars, consultations with the Dean f)f Women's 
oflice, and plans for various campus charity drives 
represent typical business of the organization. 

At the present time, the Women's League con- 
stitution is under revision, but it is hoped that it 
will soon be ready to go into operation. 

Each year the Women's League publishes a 
pamphlet of regulations concerning the women who 
live on campus. 1 he regulations are revised anmially 
bv 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 re|)resentatives and presidents of 
various organizations of interest to campus uomen. 
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, sopho- 
mores, juniors, and seniors, and the facullv spf)nsor. 

A third provision is for a T^esidence Coimcil which 
shall be composed of House Presidents and Kouse 
Directors and shall meet once weeklv. 


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

Women's League Rules 

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

A. Rooms designated for smoking in the 

B. Rest rooms in the class buildings; 

C. Drug stores. 

2. Slacks, blue jeans, and shorts are to be worn 
only in active sports, in one's room, and when 
given special permission by the Office of the 
Dean of Women.

Religion In Life Week 

Although rehgious activities are an integral

Last vear, Religion in Life Week was 
opened with an interfaith service. Following 
this there were church services, teas, sup- 
pers, and vesper services. Arrangements 
were also made for individual conferences, 
and counselling faciUties were available. 

Highlighting the week were visits of 22 
outstanding speakers. These visitors talked 
to the religious clubs, attended dinners and 
''firesides" at dormitories, fraternities and 
sororities, and conducted forums and semi- 

Members of all faiths gathered on the 
Quadrangle to climax the week with a 
Friendship Circle by candlelight.

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 vour 
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 yisiting others. Know the 
financial setup of the fraternity in 
which you 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 you fail to receiye a bid from 
the fraternity of your choice. Because 
of the large numbers of rushees, fra- 
ternities must make snap judgments. 
If you fail the first time, don't be 
discouraged, try again. 

A scene from fraternity rushing, 
the first step toward becoming k 
a brother in a fraternity 


fraternity Criteria 

The Nalioual liilei rraleniily (^oiirereiice u as 
louiuled in 1908 for the purpose of discussing ques- 
tions of nuilual interest antl to make such reconi- 
niendations from time to time as it <leems wise. It 
is composed of sixty-four national fraternities which 
meet strict quahfications for memhership. Its an- 
nual conferences are attended by about three hun- 
dred and fifty officers and ahunni of the various 
fraternities and about fifty deans of men and 
college presidents. It sponsors the National Under- 
graduate Councils on campuses all over the United 
States and Canada, which meet in conjunction with 
the Conference itself. It publishes a Year Book, the 
report of its annual meeting, in w hich much valuable 
information 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 
further to advance co-operation between fraternities 
and educational institutions. The statement was 
subsequently approved by the American Association 
of Deans and Advisers of Men and by the Confer- 
ence itself. It reads as follows: 

We consider the fraternity responsible for a posi- 
tive contribution to the prnnary functions ol the 
colleges and universities, and therefore under an 
obligation to encourage the most complete personal 
•levelopment of its members: intellectual, physical 
and social. Therefore, we declare: 


1. Thai I he ohjcclives ami activities of the 
rrateniilv should he in eiilire aeeoijl with the aims 
and purposes of the ins I iUi lions aL which it has 

2. That the |)iimary loyally and responsihility 
of a student in his relaiions \\ith his inslilulion are 
to the institution, and thai ihe association of any 
•rroup of students as a chapter of a fraternity in- 
volves the delinile responsihility of the group for 
the conduct tif the individual. 

3. Thai the fraternity should promote conduct 
consislenL with good morals and good taste. 

I. That the fraternity should create an atmos- 
phere \Nhich \s\\\ stimulate suhstantiai intellectual 
progress and superior intellectual achievement. 

.■). That the fraternity should maintain sanitary, 
safe and wholesome physical contlitions in the 
chapter house. 

6. That th<' fraternity should inculcate prin- 
ciples of soiMid husiness practice l»oth in chapter 
finances an<i in the husiness relations of its members. 

These criteria should he applied in close co-opera- 
tion with the a<lministralive authorities of the in- 
stitution. Detailed methods of application will 
ne«'essarily vary in accordance with local condi- 
tions. It is the purpose of the INational Inlerfra- 
lernitv (Conference to offer detailed suggestions, 
after further studv an<l investigation, regarding 
practical steps to make this co-operation effective.

the door of close friendship and group

Don't allow yourself to be awed by 
large houses or big groups; rather,

Be sure that you can meet the finan-

If vou do not "make" the sorority

Sororities are limited by a quota sys-

Pres ident J E A !N A SK I N 

I ice- President Mary Lou McKinley 

Secretary Jane Blunt 

Treasurer Eileen Bernhardt 

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

Important Rush Rules 

All sorority women and students interested in 
rushing should be thoroughly familiar with these 
rules and should adhere to them at all times. 

Formal rushing is that period beginning with the 
open house teas and continuing until pledging. 
Rushees shall be entertained at sorority houses only 
at designated times during formal rush week. Alpha 
Epsilon Phi and Phi Sigma Sigma will begin rushing 
several davs later to avoid conflicting with the Yom 
Kippur Holidays. 

Neither men nor non-sorority women nor alumnae 
may be present at any rush functions. No eligible 
students shall be allowed in sorority houses during 
formal rushing except during specified rush func- 

No sorority women shall be allowed to enter the 
dormitories where the new students are residing un- 


less she is liviiiji there also. No rushee shall be 
treated (mlsi<le of the sorority. 

Standard Panhellenic Rules 

\iiv woman sliulenl who is eligible for matricula- 
tion at the University and is unaffiliated with any 
National Taidiellenic Fraternity is eligible for formal 

Sludenls in the University summer school are 
ineligible for rushing until September when sororities 
become active. A pledge expires one calendar year 
from the date of pledging at which time the student 
is eligible for pledging another sorority. 

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

A pledge who is released by a chapter at any time 
(luring her pledge year, or who breaks her pledge, is 
ineligible for pledging a sorority until one calendar 
vear from the date on which her pledge was broken. 
This regidation is binding regardless of the campus 
on which the student may l)e enrolled. 

IMedges who have completed fifteen credit hours 
in the preceding semester in the University with at 
least a (] average who have no failures on their 
record for that semester, who arc resident students 
in gcKMJ standing, and who have been cleared with the 
Dean of \V Omens oflice may be initiated into a

Athletics, inter-collegiate and in-

hfe of a Maryland student. IJe mav 
he the star halfhack of the varsitv 
foothall team, or he mav be on the 
frosh basketball team, or he mav be 
the last man in the intra-mural cross 
country run. If you are potentially 
an All-American or just one who en- 
joys sports, there is a place for vou on 
an athletic team. The facilities are 
here, but you must have the incentive. 

The Council on Intercollegiatr 
Athletics, with Geary Kppley its 
chairman, supervises all athletics at 
the University. Maryland is a mem- 
ber of the Southern Conference, the 
National Collegiate Athletic Associa- 
tion, and the United States Inter- 
collegiate Lacrosse Association.

Maryland had its greatest football season in 
history in winning eight of nine regular season games 
and easily defeating Missouri, 20-T, in the Gator 
Bowl tilt" at Jacksonville, Fla., on January 2. The 
team also set a record for scoring, gathering 247 
points in its nine tilts. 

Conspicuous on the team, that was fifth m total 
defense in the country, were Ray Krouse, second 
all-American tackle; Bob Ward, all-Southern guard; 
Elmer Wingate, end, and Mighty Mo Modzelewski, 

While ten men were lost from the 1949 squad 
ample replacements came up from the Frosh and the 
1950 outfit should be as good, if not better, than 
the great eleven of last season.

Soccer Coach ' -■ -i^^H ''■^^^P' » 

Doyle Royal 


The varsity soccer team (inished a very successful 
season with a record of eight wins and two losses. 
The two losses were to the strong teams of Temple 
and Penn State by one point. 

Maryland won the Southern Conference title last 
year by winning all three of its conference games. 
jira Belt was chosen on the All -American soccer 
team, and was given help throughout the season by 
John Linz, Eddie Rieder, and Gene Volpe.

Basketball Coach 
Bld Milliran 


The baskeleers will start their 1950-51 campaign 
under a new coach. He is Bud MilUkan, a product 
of the famous Hank Iba's Oklahoma Aggie teams. 
He is a personable, serious-minded and hard-work- 
ing comparative youngster, who, in due time, should 
revive Maryland's forces. 

Millikan, however, sees a tough task ahead to get 
the Terp quintet off on the right foot in his first sea- 
son. He's far from being a pessimist but he s just 
looking the situation straight in the face. He conies 
to College Park with a line coaching record, being 
successful at two high schools after leaving his alma 
mater. His last stand was at Newton, Iowa, High 
where his 1949-50 quint had a 17-3 mark and won 
its conference crown. 

Flucie Stewart, whose team won only seven ot -o 
.rames last season, is devoting his full time as end 
coach of the football team. His quint lost many close 
aames in a campaign highlighted by a victory over 
a strong Georgetown five, registering almost as 
many total points as its opponents. 


Wrestling Coach ^"^"^^^^^ \ 

Sully'' Krouse ^^^t^jgn^ ,^ 


Coached by William "Sully" Krouse, the varsity 
grapplers had a season of five victories and three 
defeats. At times Coach Krouse had to fill gaps by 
moving his smaller men to heavier weight brackets. 
Using this system, the team finished third in the 
Southern Conference Tourney with Ray Lysakow ski 
and Jim Scott reaching the finals.

liast'hall Coach 



The i)asehall team, with H. Burton Shipley as 
the coach for the tweiitv-seventh consecutive sea- 
son, won more games during the 1950 campaign 
than in any other year. His potent charges captured 
eighteen tilts and lost only seven for a winning per- 
centage of .720. 

This however, strictly from a percentage stand- 
point, was not quite up to two earlier seasons when 
his teams won fourteen times against five defeats 
for an average of .737. He previously has won his 
most games in a year when he captured sixteen an«l 
lost six. 

Michigan was the only nine to conquer the Terps 
that was not licked, as the Shipleymen hroke even 
with the other six other that beat them. They beat 
Georgetown twice, split with George Washington 
and licked Navy to win the mythical area crown. 

Maryland qualified as one of the four teams to 
play for the Southern Conference title and was the 
runner-up. It whipped Virginia Tech and Clemson 
but lost out to the title-winning Wake Forest Club. 


Lacrosse Coach 
Jack Faber 


The varsity stickmen had a season record of six 
victories and four losses in collegiate circles. 

Highlight of the campaign was an 8-7 victory 
over Army. Charley Herbert, Bob Moulden and 
Hank Lowry were prominent for the South in the 
All-Star game with the North.

Rifie Coach 
Harl\nd Griswold 


The loss of Arthur Cook, the National and 
Olympic champion, and other stars, was reflected in 
Coach Griswold's sharpshooters. At that the team 
won eight ot" its eleven matches. 

Walter Harrison was picked for the second All- 
American team. It was the first time in years that 
Maryland did not have a marksman on the first 

Anyone is eligible to try out for the team. Mary- 
land has perhaps the best indoor rifle range in the 
country and the team knows how to use it. All 
AF'ROTC students may fire for the Hearst trophy. 


Freshman Sports 

HLverv freshman is invited to try out lor the sport 
he hkes hest. Everyone has a chance to make the 
leam. Hi'^h school press notices are not needed, tor 
il is perlormance Nvhich decides. The Freshman lool- 
l.all leam hegins practice immediately after registra- 
lion and there will he ample notice ol the iirst 
;ialhering for all other sports. 

Although the schedules for freshman teams are 
limited, tliev are given every encouragement and 
provided with able coaches. How they are han<lle>d. 
„f course, means much to the varsity squads ot the 
following year. Every yearling not only is welcome 
lo try for 'any sport he' may choose hul he is urged 
I.) take part' in some competition. 

Frosh Football 

Coach Bill Meek led his freshman charges 
throu'^h a verv good season. The record book shows 
r,,ur v^ictories'and only one loss. The squad played 
-uch teams as Fork Union, Georgetown, West 
Vir<dnia, North Carolina, and George W ashmgton. 
The "Little Terps" were undefeated until the last 
.rame of the season when they dropped a close idl 
to George Washington bv the score ol 18-13. . ack 
Scarbath and Bob De Stefano did the signal calling 
for such backlield aces as Joe Pelruzzo and Ed 
Fullerton. The line was bulwarked by Hob Morgan 
and Dick \todzelewski. You nn ill hear more ol these 
men in the varsilv games this lall. 


Frosh Track 

While not colleclively loo slrong, ihe yearling 
track squa<l ^vill send I lie varsily 8nch runners as 
W avne DeMoss and George Burklin, sprinters, 
and Bob Claney and Thorton Coss, quartermilers. 
But what excited Coach Jim Kehoe most was the 
22 foot 2 inch broad jump by John Aklerton of 
CiHid>erland just after the grid end had linished 
spring football practice. 

Frosh Soccer 

Coach Dick Cleveland developed some good 
talent for the varsitv in an abbreviated but success- 
ful season. It was only the second time since the 
war that a frosh srpiad was fielded. Cleveland, in- 
cidentallv, was one of the best players ever to play 
at Maryland. 

Frosh Wrestling 

Although taking part in a limited number of 
matches, the frosh did well enough to satisfy Coach 
"SuUv"' Krouse, and for him to find some ace pros- 
pects for his varsity outfit. Leo Tinnanoff, Bernie 
Chmielewski and Jack Shannahan showed unusual 

Frosh Boxing 

Coach"^ Frank Cronin's young miltmen won all 
three of their matches, handily defeating the Virginia 
yearlings,' Fairfax High and Charlotte Hall Military 
Academy.^Mle discovered a number of good scrap- 
pers, including Bob Theofold, a nifty 14.5 pounder: 
Lindv Dye, 16S, and Cal Quinstedt, heavyweight. 

Frosh Baseball 

Al Pohialv, ^^ho tutored the yearling diamondeers, 
>vill provide the varsity Avith much good talent. 
Included in the array aVe George Hume and Dick 
McKenzie, pitchers; Don Baranick and Gene 
Giuseppe, catchers; InHelders Victor Jungk, who 
got six hits in one game, and Jack Scarbath; and 
Joe Petruzzo and John Howard, outfielders. 
Petruzzo is rated a sure shot as a sophomore next 

Frosh Basketball 

\lthough the rookie tossers, handled by Burris 
Husman,'(lid no better than break even in 14 games, 
the squad was not devoid of promising players. 
Three newcomers pleased Bud Millikan, new varsity 
coach, in his brief drills in May. They were Sam 
Towne, Tom Connelly and Johnny Strachan, and 
he feels some of the others who will be sophs this 
fall may develop. Towne stands 6 feet 4 inches m 
his stocking feet. 

Frosh Kifle 

While Col. Griswold did not name them specifi- 
cally, he has high hopes for a number of his rookie 
marksmen, and, losing only one man from the first 
string of 1949-50, looks toward the next season with 
much confidence. Just a few good replacements 
would make the Terp team the power of old. 


Frosh Tennis 

Coach Dovic Koval jiot little hope for holsteiing 
hi8 varsity net squa<l of 1951 from the freshmen 
acfrrepatiiin. It did not have a successful campaign 
an(i there >vere no reports of any individual hrilhance 
among the players, and Royal hadly needs replace- 

Frosh Lacrosse 

Tommy Mont, former all-around Maryland 
athlete, coached the frosh to four victories in six 
games, and \\ill giye the 1951 gig team a good lift. 
His main contrihutions will be Jim Strott, Dick 
Mien and Boh Mahon. attack men: and Jack Shan- 
nahan, W e<ld Chamberlain and Dick Harryman, 
midlielders. It is the attacking trio that impressed 
ami is needed most by the varsity. 

Frosh Golf 

Only one match was played by the yearling links- 
men and that was lost to the Navy Plebes by a 4 to 
2 score. However, Bob Fitzgerald, John Smart and 
Bill Havnes showed great promise and Coach Frank 
Cronin 'of the Varsity is confident they will be of 
mu<h help to him next spring. 


Men's Intramurals 

The liUiaimiral Deparlinenl Iries lo formulate a 
policy that m ill cover all the requirements of the 
student hofly. 

Jim Kehoe is the director of the program, and 
the following sports have heen put in the program: 
hadminton, basketball, baseball, foul shootmg. 
boxing, bowling, cross country, golf, gymnastics, 
horseshoes, softball, table tennis, touch football, 
track, vollevball, and wrestling. There are well over 
60 teams "in competition. Fraternity and non- 
fraternitv men are eligible to compete. Coaches ol 
varsity squads often attend these contests looking 
for promising material. 

Often, winners of various events challenge in- 
tramural teams from colleges in the area. T his adds 
lo the feeling of varsity competition. 

There are two divisions in the men's intramurals 
—an open division anyone can enter, and a fraternilv 
division, for fraternitv men only. A cup is presented 
each year to the fraternity which has amassed the 
most points. Medals, gold for the first place lean, 
members and silver for the second place team, art- 
presented for each sport.
