The value of a college educalioii is realize<l 
more fully today than ever helore. Educa- 
tion is standing on a pedestal, unchallenged, 
as the hope of our world. It is recognized as 
the cornerstone of democracy and the prin- 
cipal means for maintaining the American 
way of life. 

You who are about to enter the doors ot the 
University of Marvland are beginning an im- 
portant life of education for which you have 
been preparing for the last twelve or more 
years. You are probably beginning the last 
and most important part of your formal 
educational career. Realize, however, that 
college training should be merely another 
step in your lifelong education. 

The most important things tor you, the 
new student to have firmly fixed in your mind 
is definite goals toward which you intend to 
direct your efforts. In determining these goals 
you should remember that there are three 
sides to college life. Maryland offers scholas- 
tic, social, and practical education. Your 
duty to vourself and to your University is to 
give and take intelligently of each of the 
activities in which you participate. 

The M-Book is the first link you will have 
with the many activities you will personally 
support and perhaps lead while at Mary- 
land. Read through each section carefully. 
Use the calendar for a handy reminder of what 
to see and do as the months pass. Let the 

other sections give you names of students 
who are now campus leaders and with whom 
you should talk for tips on how you, too, may 
hecome a leader. 

And while you are reading, keep the 
ifonoraries section on a par with the Or- 
ganizations and other sections. Remember 
that grades and activities should go hand in 
hand. Don't sacrifice one for the other, if 
you are to gain the most from your college 

The University of Maryland will need your 
help during the next four years to remain in 
its position as a leading American institution. 
Into everything that you do for our school 
put your fullest effort, and in return a full 
crib of scholastic, social and practical educa- 
tion will

General Information 


Classes at the University begin on the hour and 
last for 50 minutes. To gain the greatest measure 
of success in school students should realize that 
grades reflect more than just performance on examin- 
ations, llegular attendance in classes is more im- 
portant to that average than last minute cramming. 

There is no unlimited cut system. Students who 
have more than three unexcused absences are re- 
ported to the Dean of the College, and notices are 
sent to the student and to his parents. Absences 
may result in a lowering of the grade, or in complete 
course failure. 

If a student desires to drop a course he must ob- 
tain permission from his Dean before the last desig- 
nated date for dropping, generally eight weeks after 
the beginning of the semester (the date will be an- 
nounced in the Dianiondback) in order not to re- 
ceive a failing grade in the course. 

If an exam is missed, a make-up exam may usually 
be taken with the permission of the instructor and 
the payment of a .$1.00 fee to the registrar. A stu- 
dent must receive a passing grade in at least one- 
half of his registered credit hours in order to remain 
in school. An average of C or better is required 
for Junior standing, for eligibility for major posi- 
tions on publications, and for any class office, as 
well as for a degree. 

Detailed instructions may be found in the 
Academic Kegula lions pamphlet which is published 
by the University. 


The Student Activities Fee, which is paid by all 
undergraduates during registration, pays class dues 
and supports student publications, dramatic and 
musical productions, and other general student 
activities. Students are entitled to free copies of 
student publications, and may attend dramatic an<l 
musical productions free of charge. 


The Athletic Fee supports the intercollegiate 
sports program. Students may attend all sports 
events at the University free of charge, iijxui 
presentation of proper identification. An Athlclic 
Book and ID Card identify students as such. 


Text books, school supplies, and class materials 
as well as jewelry, stationery, post cards, and 
novelty items are available at the Student Siip|)l>

Post Office which is located in the liasemciit ol llic

box and students may call for them at the window. 

Postage stamps may also be purchased there, but 
for all other postal services the student must go 
to the Post Office in College Park, located on the 
Baltimore Boulevard just south of the main gate. 

The campus Post Office provides a medium 
through which the Administration and campus 
organizations may communicate with students; 
therefore, students should check their boxes daily, if 
possible. In order to insure quick delivery, postal 
box numbers must be sent to all correspondents and 
used for inter-campus communication.

residences of students. Outgoing telegrams may be

The University of Maryland dales back to 1807 
Avhen the first school of the University, the Colle-e 
oe Medicine, was founded in Baltnnore. In the 
more than 140 years since its foundnig, the Uni- 
versity has expanded both physically and ni its 
standards of education, untd it now occupies a 
position as one of the leading universities m the 

*^^ 4fter the College of Medicine was founded, there 
followed within a few years the establishment of 
several other professional schools to mark the lirst 
expansion of the University. The School of Law was 
added in 1823, the School of Dentistry in 1882 the 
School of Nursing in 1889, and in 1904 the Maryland 
College of Pharmacy completed the Baltimore 
additions. „ ,, 

\t College Park, in 1856, Maryland State College 
the lirst \crncultural college in the United States and 
the second in the western hemisphere, was estab- 
lished under the name of the Maryland Agr.cultura 
College. The college was financed by the sale al 
stock'^at 825 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 awls to 

111^920, the professional schools of the Uniyersily 
iu Baltimore, and the Maryland State (.ollege m 
College Park were merged to form what is uou 
known as the University of Maryland. 


Maryland's Great Seal, the oldest of the state 
seals, was sent to the province of Maryland in 1648 
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 surmounted 
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, Marvland 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: University of Maryland 1807 1856 

University Seal 


Customs and Spirit 

Maryland's customs, from bronze Test udo 
keeping guard in front of the Coliseum to the 
chimes in the tower of the Old Engineering 
building, will prove both stimulating and 
interesting to the incoming freshman class. 
A feeling of the timelessness of the Uni- 
versity comes over the new student when he 
learns that the Rossborough Inn, located 
near the Baltimore Boulevard, was doing a 
thriving business about 1790 and is, per- 
liaps, the nucleus of Maryland tradition. 

The Tunnel, the Wishing Well, May Day 
— all are part of that tradition. They will be 
a part of vour college career. The friendly 
''Hello Habit" which has always been a 
Maryland custom will quickly orient you. 
The pep rallies, convocations, and sporl 
contests will heighten vour growing school 
spirit. You will pass on the history and 
tradition of Maryland to those who will 
inhabit the campus after you.

Riggins, 1951 May Queen, leads her ^ 
down Ad building steps to the throneV 





Classes, sluay anil -roup >vork are integral parts 
of our University scene, but colortul tradtjons ami 
customs handed down through the years help create 
the most vivid memories of college life. 

Alanv first year women are mtroduced to \lar^- 
land customs by sorority rushing previous to the 
beginning of school. , 

Freshmen couples usually are quick to lolUm mu 1 
a revered custom as the traditiona kisses exchang^ed 
durinc the first trip to the secluded Tunnel. Iht 
FresWan should remember, too, that .Iroppmg a 
pennv in the wishing well at the Kossborough Inn 
guarantees that his wishes will come to reahtv. 

The football season is accentuated by s in i 
enthusiasm as demonstrated m pep ^^"'7; ' ' ;. 
romin- celebrations, house decorations the fro. 
ophomore tug-of-war over Paint Branch ^r^^^;^ 
the crowning of a queen. Perhaps the most p.>,>ula 
custom at the University is the selection, man 
timesa semester, of campus beauties to reign o- 
every event from a cow-milking contest to a sailin, 

'""wUhout a mention of Testudo, the <an.pu. 
mascot a discussion of the football season >voul.l )< 
r complete. A tremendous -^^^ P-"^.;;.!^ ,' 
f th;^ state's famous Diamondback leiapnu 

him before many major games. 


Al Christmas time a pageant is held following the 
lighting of a Christmas tree. Carols are broadcast 
from the tower of Morrill Hall during the week pre- 
ceding Christinas vacation. 

All during the spring, sororities and fraternities 
gather their groups about the nearest pianos to re- 
hearse for the Phi Kappa Tau Barber Shop quartet 
contest and the Tri Delt sponsored Interfraternity 
Sing. In the springtime, too, the south gate wall 
becomes a meeting ground for male students who 
wish to pass both the time of day and their judg- 
ment on coeds walking by. The number of fraternity 
pins and police parking tickets given out zooms dur- 
ing this period, not to mention "Keep off the grass!" 
campaigns in the Diamondback. 

May Day soon heralds the approaching end of 
the Spring semester as students pause to honor the 
beloved May Queen with a traditional pageant. 
Mortar Board taps outstanding junior women dur- 
ing the festivities, too. 

At this time one of Marvland'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 annual Honors and Awards Assembly, held 
just before graduation, recognizes achievement in 
scholarship, sports, AFROTC, publications, and 
other phases of University life. 

Seniors leave their University life behind them 
at the graduation exercises on the Mall, Iml forever 
keep its memories. 


The Administration 

The Administration will be your guide while you 
are at the University of Maryland. Composed of all 
college deans, department-heads, and other |)er- 
sonnel, the Administration is headed by the I iii- 
versity President, Dr. H. C. Byrd. The offices of 
the President, Dean of Men, registrar, ami cashier 
may be found in the Administration buihiing. Make 
every effort to become acquainted \v ith the mendiers 
of the staff, and never hesitate to ask them for any 
help that you may need, for they are always rea<ly 
and willing to be of assistance. 

The S. G. A. office, the Post Office, and the book 
store are on the basement floor of the Administra- 
tion building, where von will also llnd the Religious 
Counsellors office. Most students, day dodgers as 
well as residents, daily pass through the halls ol this 
building. It is the nerve center of I niversily life, 
just as'^the Administration is the nerve center of 
campus functions. 

The new student should let an interest in both 
become a gui«ling light during his four years al llie 
L niversitv.

To Members of the First Year Class: 

The Freshman, hi orienting himself with Uni- 
versity Hfe, finds himself confronted >vith manv 
questions. The University's program is coordinated 
with the high school program. Yet, in some respects, 
a wide difference exists between the two. J he stu- 
dent entering the University for the first lime is cut 
loose from home ties and finds himself in a position 
where he must act independently and on his o>xn 
judgment. Boys and girls are suddenly away Irom 
the^disciplines of their homes and find that they 
face a problem of self discipline, in which often 
personal desires must be conquered. 

Tt is my duty as President of the University, it 
is the duty of the Dean of Men and the Dean of 
Women particularlv, and of all members ol the 
faculty, to help you orient yourself to new com i- 
tions.' Tell us what your problems are and our help 
will be given gladly. Ask any questions you may 
wish, even if you are afraid that some of them may 
seem simple. ^u ii : 

Remember that you are welcomed to the uni- 
versity of Maryland as a member of the I mversity 
family. As a family, we are obligated, and it is our 
pleasure, to help one another. 

My office door always is open. Walk in Nxhencv«M- 
you need my help.

Stiulenl Goveinineiit Associalion and class offices 
are filled by elections w liich lake place in the spring. 
J t three candidates for offices are nominated, a 
primary is held a week prior to the final election. 
Maryland's election campaigns have come to be as 
eye-catching and colorfnl as local and national elec- 
tions. Candidates and their supporters rely on many 
means — the more dramatic the better — to gain 

Any student may run for an office. Candidates for 
Executive Council posts must be nominated from 
the floor of the SGA at a specially designated meet- 
ing. Class office candidates must procure a specified 
number of petition signatures prior to the deadline 
in order to run. Normally an assembly is held at 
which candidates state their qualifications. The 
campus radio station, newspaper, and a host of 
posters are used in letting the student body know 
just who is running for what. 


The Sludenl Government Associalion operates 
under a constitution which was approved bv the 
sludenl body in a special 1950 spring election. The 
Constitution provides for the election of SGA and 
class officials; for the operation of the Men's and 
Women's League; for the organization of com- 
mittees; for initiative, petition, referendum and re- 
call; for meetings, and publications; and for bv 
laws to govern additional activities.

The Student Govermnenl Association operates 
through the use of committees, set up hy the Exe- 
cutive Council and composed ol stutlents who have 
expressed an interest in working lor extracurricular 
events. Any student may become a mendier of a 
committee. He has only to show an interest in the 
SGA and a desire to work for the henelit «d" the slu- 
tient body. 

As soon as a committee is set up, notices an- 
nouncing the organization of the group are printed 
in the University newspaper, and are posted on the 
bulletin hoard near the SGA office, in the basement 
of the Administration building. A list is then main- 
tained in the SGA office which interested persons 
are asked to sign. The committee mend)ership is 
made up from this hst. 

Chairmanships on each SGA committee arc (illrd 
in a similar manner. Following announcement of the 
need of a particular committee chairman, interested 
students may write a letter staling their qualilica- 
tions and experience, giving the name ol the posi- 
tion for which they are applying, and submit it to 
the University post office. Box J\o. I. 

Applications for conunittee chairmanships are 
screened by the SGA Organization and Procedure 
Committee, which makes a recommendation to he 
voted upon by the Executive Council. I'inal ap- 
proval of committee heads comes from the (iouncii. 

Within each conunittee are a nund)er of sub-com- 
mittees, such as publicity, decorations, refreshments, 
tickets, and the like. It is customary to select f<»r 
sub-c<»mmit lee heads persons who ha\ e \\«»rked on 


either the same sub-committee or similar suh-com- 
miltees previously. 

All SGA activities, which include all student 
activities on campus not controlled by special 
boards or faculty committees, are under the super- 
vision of the Faculty Committee on Student Life, 
an advisory administrative board which sanctions 
or disapproves operations of student organizations 
and oversees the appropriation of activities funds. 

Constitutional Committees 

The SGA Constitution provides for the appoint- 
ment of the Committee on Ways and Means, the 
Committee on Elections, and the Committee on 
Organization and Procedure. 

Special Committees 

The president of the Executive Council has also 
set up the following committees with the approval of 
the Council: 

Student Welfare Committee 

Social Affairs Committee 

Campus Improvement Committee 

Student Activities Committee 

Constitution Committee 

Campus Chest Committee 

Freshman Orientation Committee 

Homecoming Committee

assists the dormitory housemothers, and handles 
violations of rules governing resident women. 

Women's League also participates aclivly in 
campus programs. During the past year it has 
sponsored informal Friday night mixers (dances). 
May Day afternoon the league also invites new 
Mortar Board tappees and the May Day court to a 
tea in the Rossborough Inn. 

The League is a self-governing organization, with 
representatives from each house for women students 


on or near campus, from the day dodgers, and the 
Fan-Hellenic Association. The officers of the Lea^rue

open to all women. '^

Since the principal purpose of a university is to 
Irain better citizens, the development of a well- 
rounded, informed, personality should he the aim of 
every student. At the University of Maryland are 
27 societies, membership in which is based to some 
degree on leadership, scholarship, or service. 

Election to one of the honorary societies is a 
legitimate aim for each Freshman who comes to the 
University with a serious intent to receive from his 
lour years the most which the University has to 

A maxim to ever remember, however, is that the 
amount of satisfaction one gets out of his college 
career is directly proportional lo the interest and 
work he puts into it. Feel sorry for the ever-griping 
student who has never asked himself, "What have / 
done to improve this situation?" 

However, to be tapped by an honorary is to re- 
ceive recognition for the worth of one's contri- 
butions to University life or for one's attainments in 
personal achievements in his selected (icid. 

in honitr stndrnt hiimhlv rcrvivrs his aufim

Freshman Honors and Awards 

While most of the honorary societies elect only 
upper classmen, there are honors open to Freshmen 
which are worthy of one's hest effort. Alpha Lamhfla 
Delta for women and Phi Eta Sigma for men are 
open only to Freshmen. Membership in these 
organizations is based solely on scholarship. 

Omicron Nu, Home Economics honorary, presents 
an award to the freshman woman in that College 
who attains the highest scholastic average during 
her first semester. 

Alpha Zeta, Agriculture honorary, presents the 
Alpha Zeta Medal to the freshman student who at- 
tains the highest average in culture. 

The Sigma Chi Cup is awarded to the man in the 
freshman class who makes the highest scholastic 
average during the first semester. 

Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary journalism fralernily, 
awards a cup to the outstanding freshman journalist. 

The Chemistry Department presents an award 
to the outstanding Chemistry I student. 

A Danforth Summer Scholarship is presented to 
both a first year woman in the College of Home 
Economics and a first year man enrolled in the Col- 
lege of Agriculture. 

A mediocre high school record need not prevent 
the attainment of honors in college. Interesting sub- 
ject matter and a<l<led maturity stimulate achieve- 
ment. With regular and adequate hours of study 
(a minimum of two hours each evening for each class 
hour is recommended), honors and awards are 
within the reach of evervone.

To many coeds, the social side oC college 
life takes the form of a sorority. Approxi- 
mately a week hefore the beginning of regis- 
tration, houses open their doors of friendship 
and group activity to all prospective new 

You, the incoming coed, will be the most 
"prospective" of all. In order that your 
sorority experience might be one that is real 
and full, remember not to let your choice of a 
sorority group be based on the size of house 
or wealth of the group. Judge from points 
which to you seem to be important. Choose 
personalities which appeal: remember, you'll 
have to live with them. 

Sororities are limited by the number of per- 
sons they can a<lequately accommodate, and 
sometimes overlook potentially line mem- 
bers. If you don't fit at first, don't lose in- 
terest. Remember, college success and hap- 
piness depend least of all on a sorority, and 
most of all on you.

ternities as possible. Attempt to 
meet all the brothers at the rush 
functions and learn the financial set- 
up of the fraternities you visit. Since 
this will be an important decision in 
your college life do not let yourself 
be "high pressured" into committing 
yourself to one fraternity before vou 
have had a chance to learn something 
of the other fraternities. Remember 
that the right fraternity is the fra- 
ternity of vour choice.

Fraternity Criteria 

The National Interfraternity Conference was 
(ounded in 1908 as a means of bringing about closer 
harmony between the national fraternities. Ques- 
tions of mutual interest are discussed at the annual 
conferences and recommendations are made to the 
fraternities. The sixty-four national fraternities 
which make up the National Interfraternity Con- 
ference must meet strict qualifications for member- 
ship. These fraternities send about three hundred 
and fifty officers and alumni and about fifty deans 
of men and college presidents to their annual con- 
ferences. x\lso attending these conferences are the 
National Undergraduate Councils from campuses 
throughout the United States and Canada which 
are sponsored by the National Interfralernity Con- 
ference. A Year Hook, the report of its annual meet- 
ing containing much valuable information about col- 
lege fraternity life, is published by the Conference. 

The following criteria was written in 1934 by the 
Executive Committee of the Conference and the 
P^ducational Advisory Council in order to advance 
co-operation between fraternities and educational 
institutions. The statement was subsequently ap- 
proved by the American Association of Deans and 
Advisers of Men and by the Conference itself. It 
reads as follows: 

1. That the objectives and activities of the fra- 

leriiity 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 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 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. 

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- 
lion with the administrative authorities of the in- 
stitution. Detailed methods of application will 
necessarily vary in accordance with local conditions. 
It is the purpose of the National Tnterfraternity 
Conference to offer detailed suggestions, after 
further study and investigation, regarding practical 
steps to make this co-operation effective.

fraternity Council.) 


Interfraternity Council 

President Marvin Perry 

The local chapter of the Tnlerfraternitv Council 
was established on the Maryland campus in 1926. 
The purpose of the council is to foster harmonious 
relations between the University and the fraternities 
and among the fraternities themselves. One of the 
duties of the Council is the improvement of the 
fraternity system. 

During the year the Interfraternity Council 
sponsors several social events. The Interfraternity 
dance and the annual Interfraternity athletic pro- 
gram are included in this social calendar. The Coun- 
cil also awards scholarships and activities cups to 
the fraternities. 

The rushing program also falls under the super- 
vision of the Council and it helps to orient the stu- 
dents to fraternity policies and customs.

Whether you are varsity material or just 
feel like playing: ball now and then, \laryland 
athletics have a place for you. Besides the 
powerhouse football teams and fast breaking 
basketball quintet, there are over 1,700 men 
and women enj^aged in intramural sports. 
The Maryland sports program is a vear 
around one. Starting with stiff competition 
of the intramural touch football leagues and 
the razzle-dazzle of the split T on Home- 
coming day, through the rock-em, sock-em 
boxing season and rugged ping-pong tourna- 
ments, to the Indian's mayhem, lacrosse, and 
the safer, but just as exciting track season, 
Maryland sports play an important role in 
the life of everv Old Liner -tudent. 

James M. Tatum 
Director of Athletics 


The iO.iO-ol Marylarid varsity leanis cliinhed lo 
iH'NN heights from the statistical standpoint. All 
of the teams registered a combined average for the 
year of .712, a marked increase over the previous 
year's .674. Every team finished in the black ex- 
cept the golf and track teams. Track however made 
up for its dual meet losses by copping the first S. C. 
outdoor track title in Maryland history.

Jfead Coach — James M. Tatum 

The 1950 /ootbaJl season found the IVIaryland 
eleven gonig from the heights of success to the 
bottom ot the gloomy ladder and back to the heicrhts 
again Such vaunted powers as Navv and Michf-an 
State tell before the Terrapin football machine, but 
North Carolina State threw the one bier nionkev 
wrench in the works with a stunnin- Homecoming 
deleat. Ihe only other loss on the Liner schedule 
came at the hands of Georgia in the season's opener. 
I he record for the whole schedule reads seven wins, 
two defeats and one tie. 

Several gridiron records fell bv the wavside durin.^ 
the 1950 season. Halfback "Shoo Shoo'' Shemonsk'i 
led the Southern Conference scoring with 97 points 
a new high in Terp history. The team romped over 
Virginia Tech, 63-7, and rolled up a record 577 
yards rushing. 

Maryland's All-America football player, l^ob 
Ward, will be back at his guard position in' the com- 
ing season, but sixteen other grid stalwarts left 
Maryland via graduation in June. However, a new 
Conference ruling that allows freshmen to play 
varsity ball and several capable men from last year's 
frosh squad are expected to ease the losses. 

Two new additions to the schedule, Missouri and 
J.ouisiana State, make 1951 loom as a new mark in 
Terp (ootball.

Basketball Coach 
Bud Millikan 




A new era came to Maryland (lurin<r ihe lasl 
basketball season. A new coach. Bud Millikan, in 
his first year with the Liners, turned the tide that 
had been flowing against Maryland's basketball 

Millikan piloted the Terps to a 15 win, 10 loss 
season mark. The previous year had found the 
Maryland basketball learn winning only seven of 25 
games. The 1950-51 court squad advanced to the 
semi-final round of the Southern Conference playoffs 
before bowing to champ N. C. State. 

A close look at statistics shows why the Terps did 
so well in basketball. Making every opportunity 
count, the Maryland team ended with a 39.8 per- 
centage in field goal shooting to lead the nation. 
They made good on 481 of 1,210 shots at the basket. 
The Terps were eighth in the nation on free throws 
and 24 th on defense. 

Lee Brawley, dead-eye Maryland forward, was 
the team's leading scorer with 404 points. 


Track Coach 
Jim Kehoe 



For the first time in Maryland athletic history, 
the Terrapin trackmen carried off top honors in the 
annnal outdoor championship meet. Coupled with 
the cross country title won during the fall, the 
trackmen have earned the name of champion on the 
Maryland campus. Coach Jim Kehoe saw some of 
his own records fall and he saw a string of dual meet 
victories broken, but the title helped to ease the 
pain of those happenings. 

Morty Cohen led the squad with over 100 points 
scored in competition and many first places in the 
hurdle races and broad jump. Cohen will be back to 
pace this year's team along with many other out- 
standing track and field men.

whelming total of 17 goals to one. Only losses cjn

and three was a repeat of the previous season, but 
the title was something new. 

Joel Adleherg became the Liner's first S. C. title-

is co-captain of this year's team along with Ray

Boxing has always been among the favorites with

to keep their place with the fans. Last year's team 
battled to six wins in eight matches. The boxers 
tied one match and lost one. 

Outstanding victories on the 1950 schedule were 
wins over Louisiana State and Michigan State. 

Leading the team during the last season were 
Captain Andy Quattrocchi and Paul Kostopolous. 
Quattrocchi fought in the 135-lb. class and Kosto-

Baseball Coach 
Burton Shipley 


The Maryland baseball team completed its 28th 
?eason under the direction of Coach Burton Shipley 
rt ith the best record in the history of Terp baseball. 
In regular season play the team captured 18 games 
and dropped five. Previous to this, the best Mary- 
land baseball records were in 1934 and 1939. 

By winding up first in the Northern division of the 
Southern Conference, Maryland earned a place in 
the loop playoffs. Duke eliminated the Terps in the 
first round. 

Three men were chosen on the Southern Conference 
All-star team. Don Soderberg was selected as a 
pitcher, Jim Moeller at first base, and Bob Hein- 
baugh also in the infield. Maryland placed more men 
on the All-star team than any other school in the 

Leading pitcher on the team last year was Soder- 
berg. In 60 innings, Soderberg allowed 46 hits, 
struck out 59 men and had a earned-run average 
of 1.50. His game record was seven wins and two

Golf Coach 
Frank Cronin 

111 ^ ^^ 


Alter a big year in 1950 the varsity golf team had a 
letdown in 1951 and ended up iii the red. The 
linksmen had a season total of live wins against 
seven defeats. A great deal of the fault during the 
'ol season can be attributed to the fact that the 
squad was inexperienced. This fault will not be 
present in the coming season. Most of last season's 
varsityjwill be back and several good golfers are ex- 
pected to move up from the freshman team. 

As proof of the fact that experience counts. Coach 
Frank Cronin can point to the fact that his team 
won their last three matches in a blazing finish. 

Team captain Dick Sturges posted a phenomenal 
61 m the Western Maryland Invitational tourna- 
ment to set a record for the Westminster course. 
The Terps managed to gain the fourth spot out of 
nine teams entered in the tourney. 

iiob Miller led the team throughout the season 
wilhthe lowest average score. J I is season's record 
was 77.3. 



Tennis Coach 
Doyle Royal 

By finishing the 1951 season with 12 wins and 
jnst one defeat, the Terrapin tennis team wound up 
with one of the best net records in Maryland tennis 

John McCool was the team's steady winner and 
extended his personal win streak over two seasons. 

Both George Washington and Georgetow n fell he- 
fore the Liner tennis squad, to give Maryland the 
mythical Metropolitan area crown.

Freshmen Sports 

The fact that there is a place in Maryland athletics 
for everyone cannot be over emphasized. Plenty of 
opportunity is available. The place for all freshmen 
to get started in sports if they have any varsity 
ambitions is on the frosh teams. All of the sports 
field a freshman counterpart and ample notice is 
given before the start of each season to let the new 
Terrapms know where and when. 

Frosh team schedules are limited, but practice is 
thorough. Able coaches are provided to guide the 
freshmen athletes. The development and record of 
the Irosh teams means a great deal to the varsity 
squads and coaches who fill the vacancies on the 
teams from the frosh and discover the stars of the 
future varsity lineup. 

Frosh Football 

Last season freshmen gridders were led by former 
Maryland backfield ace, Jim La Rue. The Terp 
yearlmgs played a full five game schedule, the limit 
m the Southern Conference and won three games. 

Ihe game with the North Carolina frosh was con- 
sidered the highlight of the season. A late flurry 
gave the Liners a 29-20 victory after the Tar Heels 
had battled to a 20-20 tie in the dyiug moments of 
the game. On the other hand, the worst defeat of 
the season came at the hands of the young Moun- 
taineers of West Virginia. 

Frosh Soccer 

The freshman counterpart of the hooter squad of 
last year is being counted on for big things by the 


new varsity team. Six stalwarts of last year's S. C. 
champ varsity team have graduated, leaving manv 
vacancies to he filled. 

The 1950 freshman soccer team earned a .500 
average for a live game schedule hy winning two 
games, losing two, and tying one. Victories were 
earned over Mount St. Joseph's of Baltimore and 
Si. vUbans of Washington. Navy and Frostburg 
Slate were the two winners over the Terps while the 
Lniversitv of Virginia was the lone tie. 

Frosh Track 

An indoor track championship was the main 
achievement of the frosh tracksters during the past 
year. A fairly unsuccessful cross country season 
found the freshmen dropping four meets. Several 
outstanding distance and sprint men showed up on 
the past freshman teams who will holster the com- 
ing varsity squad. Last year's varsity won its first 
outdoor title in Maryland history. 

Frosh Basketball 

(^oach IJurris llusmaii arid his team of frosh 
hoopsters scored 11 wins out of 16 gatnes in the 
1950—51 baskethall campaign and gave promise of 
passing several outstanding players along as varsity 

Leading scorers of the frosh were Ed Cahill and 
Gene Shue. They lalHed 158 and 154 points, respec- 
tively. Of special note was the fact that quite a 
few of the frosh were tall, and height has heen needed 
!»y the varsity five. 

The heller than average record included wins 
over George Washington, Georgetown, and Loyola.

Freshman baseball usually issues its call shortly 
after the regular nine starts jjractice. 

Frosh Tennis 

Nearby high schools furnished most of the com- 
petition for the freshman netters as they swatted 
through fairly successful. Among the tennis pros- 
pects who will be moving up to vie for a varsity 
berth this year are John Myer, Howard Golding, 
and Ray Blank. All three had long unbeaten streaks 
(hning the last campaign. 

Frosh Lacrosse 

\ highly satisfactory stick season found the 
freshmen winning four matches and losing only one. 
Coach Charlie Herbert and his team lost only to a 
sharp shooting Navy Plebe ten while licking such 
outfits as Hopkins, Baltimore Junior College, 
Charlotte Hall, and Severn. The win over Hopkins, 
(he first for a Terp team in live years, was an omen 
of bigger things to come on the varsity field. 

The lacrosse squad is also ready and willing to 
accept the frosh talent to fill the many positions left 
empty by June graduation. 

Frosh Golf 

The varsity golf team is one that is counting on 
some experience to bolster the coming season's 
record. The freshman team of last year will have 
to provide much of that experience. Bill Bruppert 
and Don Beach are two linksmen who figure in the 
rebuilding plans of the varsity mentor. 

The lr<jsh golf team usually makes the roun<ls of 
the local high schools, most of whom plav a flashy 
Itrand of iiolf. 


Men 5 Intramurals 

From a slatistiral standpoint Maryland's main 
athletic activity is not carried out bv the varsity 
teams that compete in intercollegiate circles, but, 
instead, on the intramural level within the Uni- 

More than 1,500 men of the Universitv participate 
in intramural athletics in one form or another. The 
sports include touch football, horseshoes, tennis, 
cross country, boxing, wrestling, badminton, volley- 
ball, basketball, table tennis, bowling, foul shooting, 
gymnastics, softball, golf and track. 

All of the team sports are divided into both Open 
and Fraternity leagues, with the winners of each 
playing for the school title at the end of the season. 

Often, winners of the various events participate 
in tournaments against the winners from other near- 
by schools. This adds competition to the program. 
Maryland teams have always proved successful in 
these tournaments. 

Among the many prizes and trophies that are 
awarded, a cup is presented each vear to the fra- 
ternity which has amassed the post points. .Medals, 
gold for the first place team members and silver for 
the second place team, are presented for each sport. 

The intramural program at Maryland is directed 
by Coach Jim Kehoe. '^Fbe intranniral office is 
located in the Armory.

Women's Intramurals 

The inlrainiiral program for women was eslali- 
Jished bv the Women's Physical Education Depart- 
ment. The Department is uiven assistance by the 
Women's Recreational Association, a student or- 
ganization composed of physical education majors. 

This program is set tip to insure activities starling 
shortly after registration and lasting through May. 
These activities include all popular sports. 

Tournaments are held each year in hockev, 
bowling, basketball, volleyball and badminton. 
Each tournament is sponsored and governed by the 
Women's Recreational Association. The sororities, 
the women's dormitories, daydodgers, and facultv

Swimming Pool 

Last year there vv as great activity at the Woineirs 
Field House. Everyone was curious about the 
addition which slowly materialized. This Fall 
Freshman women will be able to enjoy the new 
facilities. The addition to the Women's Field House 
contains a new swimming pool which is the standard 
size, 75 by 35 feet. The depth of the pool ranges from 
three feet six inches at the shallow end to ten feet in 
the deep section. At the deep end of the pool are 
two one-meter diving boards; a seven foot six inch 
wide walkway borders the water. The primary tile 
colors are white and green, while the numerals and 
lane markings on the floor of the pool are in blue, 
black, and tan. Light to illuminate the structure is 
obtained by windows set high in the walls and by 
aluminum capped light bulbs and flood lights. 
There are locker facilities for approximatelv (iflv 
girls, as well as a hair-drying room and showers. 

The overall height of the building on the outside 
varies from 27 feet over the pool area to 35 feet over 
the rest of the structure. On the first floor is a 
lounge, and office space for members of the Wo- 
men's Physical Education department faculty. The 
second floor contains a dance studio, a body me- 
chanics room and a photo lab which is adjacent to 
the exercise room.

Songs and Cheers 

Much of the romance surrounding college life is 
connected with the enthusiasm and music attendant 
at football games and other athletic events. No 
college's story would be complete without the songs 
and "cheers which express its spirit. Maryland's 
rapid growth as a state university and its newly 
acquired position as a leader in collegiate sports has 
brought more and larger crowds to fill the spacious 
stadium. Maryland has its share of expressive 
songs woven about the history and environment of 
the University. Cheers add to the enthusiasm and 
color of the big games. That you may better join 
in the enthusiasm and excitement that sweep an ex- 
pectant crowd, you will want to learn the school 
songs and cheers. 

The main organizers of the pre-garne pep rallies 
are the members of the STUDENT ACTIVITIES 
COMMITTEE. The purpose of this group is to 
back the teams by rallies, away-game send-offs and 
airport welcomes,'and to increase student interest in 
athletic programs. 

Where the Student Activities Committee stops, 
the CHEER-LEAD^ERS begin. Theirs is the task of 
welding a large number of excited spectators into a 
unified^ cheering group. Game-time warm-ups in 
cheering and songs, as their participation in the 
numerous half-time activities, make the cheerleaders 
invaluable in providing the much publicized "big- 
game atmosphere."
