To THE Incoming Students: 

Welcome to the University of Maryland! 

You have been preparing for this day for twelve 
years. The M Book is your first link with college. 

This year's M Book is new in every way to help 
you become more easily acquainted with vour home 
for the next four years. For the first time a theme 
has been employed to increase the value of vour 
"Freshman Bible." 

The theme is . . . "An open letter to incoming 
students (from all present students) about one year 
at Maryland." 

Therefore, the 1956 M Book is arranged as nearly 
chronologically as possible. Throughout the pages 
you will learn what the campus activities are and 
who the campus leaders are. Opening with the 
Administration section, which contains academic 
information, the University calendars, rules and reg- 
ulations, and the faculty members who will aid 
you; the handbook next mentions the Greeks, since 
rushing is the first affair on the year's agenda. 

Following the sororities and fraternities are the 
student publications and organizations sections 
which get underway early in the fall. 

Another new feature is a breakdown of sports 
into seasonal activities; hence, the fall and winter 
athletics section appears next. 

During March will be the combined campus 
musical production; therefore, drama and music 
fit in the following slot. 

Religious Emphasis Week also falls in the same 


I'ollou iiifi the reli<;ion seclion is ihe entry of 
spriii<;-(ever-lime, when spriiifi; sporls j;eL un<ler\vay- 
Durinj; May is the AFKOTC Military Day. The 
final chronoiof^ieal section is honoraries, which are 
svrnholic of June and <:ra(luation. lliis portion of 
the handhook should he kept in mind since studying 
is the most important campus activity. 

Vhc M Hook conchnles with the traditional Mary- 
land songs an<l cheers and with a few more campus 
aids to newcomers, the back cover closes. Then . . . 
it's up to you. 

It is easy to say a lot about the heritage and ad- 
vantages of the University of Maryland, especially 
that you have chosen a fine school. Accredited as 
one of the outstanding universities in the country, 
Maryland is perhaps better known as the home 
of the Sugar Bowl team, the top Interfraternity 
Council in the country, the first slate university 
chapel, Ail-American rated student publications, 
and the many activities you will long remendjer. 

However, remendier 
this: \oiir primary reason 
for fn'iiifi horc is for vduca- 
tioii. Don't he like the

to have "Dean's Team" 
grades . . . not the Dean's 
List. Join onlv the activi- 
ties which you can success- 
fullv (it into your career 
as a student at Maryland.

Historij and Traditions 

Steeped in time-honored traditions, "the College 
on the Hiir*" has always maintained customs worthy 
of one of the oldest universities in the United States. 
These traditions . . . from historic Rossborough Inn, 
which did a thriving business about 1790, to the 
nearby Class of 1910 Gate near the Baltimore 
Boulevard, to the present day's bronze Testudo 
keeping guard in front of the Coliseum and the 
chimes in the tower of the Agronomy Building . . . 
have long inspired students to sing praises to their 
alma mater — Maryland. 

The Tunnel, the Wishing Well, May Day — all are 
part of this tradition. Thev will always be part of 
your college career. The friendly "Hello Habit" 
which has been a Maryland custom for many years 
will quickly orient you. The pep rallies, convoca- 
tions, and sports contests will heighten your growing 
school spirit. You will pass on the history and 
traditions of the University to all those who will 
inhabit the Maryland campus in the years, but 
your memories will linger. 

The crowning of Suzanne Miller as 1952^ 
May Queen, climaxed May Day celebration r 



The University of Maryland dates back to 1807 
when the first school of the University, the College 
of Medicine, was founded in Baltimore. In the 
more than 140 years since its founding, 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 >\as 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 Law 
w as 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 Bal- 
timore additions. 

At College Park, in 1856, Maryland Agricultural 
College, the first agricultural college in the United 
States and the second in the western hemisphere, 
was established on an estate purchased from Charles 
B. Calvert, Esquire. The college Avas financed by 
the sale of stock at 825 a share. 

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

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


Universitif Seal 

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 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 by that of a fisherman, symbols of each of Lord 
Hallimore's estates, Maryland and Avalon. Below 
I he figures is the scroll bearing the Calvert motto: 
"Fatti Maschii Parole Femine," which means 
"'Deeds are males; words, females." On a bor<ler 
encircling the seal is the legend: University of 
Maryland . . . 1807 . . . 1856 . . . 1920. 



Classes, study, and trroup work are inlegral parts 
of our University scene, but colorful traditions and 
customs handed down through the years help 
create the most vivid memories of college life. 

Freshmen couples usually are quick to follow 
such a revered custom as the traditional kisses ex- 
changed during the first trip to the secluded Tunnel, 
located under the roadway which passes the Chapel. 
The Freshmen should remember, too that dropping a 
penny in the wishing well at the Rossborough Inn 
guarantees that his wishes will come true. 

The football season is accentuated by student 
enthusiasm as demonstrated in pep rallies. Home- 
coming celebrations, house decorations, the frosh- 
sophomore tug-of-w ar over Paint Branch Creek and 
the crow ning of a queen. Perhaps the most popular 
custom at the University is the selection, many times 
a semester, of campus beauties to reign over every 
event from a cow -milking contest to the Junior 

Without a mention of Testudo, the campus 
mascot, a discussion of the football season would 
not be complete. Testudo is the 500 pound bronze 
replica of this state's famous Diamondback Terra- 
pin, which always manages to escape the 
"foreigners'^ who kidnap him before many major 

As for the name "Old Liners," the University 
can thank General George Washington at the 
Battle of Brooklyn during the Revolution when he 
said of the Maryland 'defenders,"the Old 'Line will 

hold.' Hence, we're the ''Old Liner". 

At Christmas time a pageant is held following 
the lighting of a Christmas tree hehind Ross- 
horough Inn. Carols are broadcast during the 
week preceding Christmas vacation. 

During the year sororities and fraternities gather 
with their groups around the nearest pianos to re- 
hearse for the Phi Kappa Tau Barber Shop quartet 
contest and Tri Delt's Interfraternity Sing. 

In the springtime the south gate wall becomes a 
meeting ground for male students who wish to pass 
both the time of day and their judgment on coeds 
walking bv. The number of fraternity pins and 
police parking tickets given out zooms during this 
period not to mention trips to Greenbelt Lake. 

May Day soon heralds the approaching end of the 
Spring semester as students pause to honor the an- 
nual May Queen with a traditional celebration. At 
this time Mortar Board taps outstanding junior 

It is during this season that one of ]VIaryland's 
keenest rivals, Johns Hopkins, is encountered in the 
annual lacrosse game between the two schools. 

Campaigning and electioneering for student 
government and class offices make very lively cam- 
pus elections each spring. Each party tries to outdo 
the other with colorful publicity stunts. 

The annual Honors and Awards Assembly, held 
just before graduation, recognizes achievement in 
all phases of University life. 

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

To Members of the First Year Class: 

In trying to give incoming Freshmen a message 
that should help integrate them into the life of the 
University, it is difficult indeed to know just how to 
concentrate nianv thoughts into a few lines. 

The Freshman, in orienting himself with Uni- 
versity life, is confronted with manv questions. The 
Universitv's program is coordinated with the high 
school program. Yet, in some respects, a wide gulf 
exists hetween the two. The student entering the 
University for the first time is cut loose from home 
ties and finds himself in a position where he must 
act independently and on his own judgment. Boys 
and girls, awav from the disciplines of their homes for 
the first time, find that they face a problem of self 
discipline, in which often personal desires must be 

It is my dutv as President of the University, it 
is the duty of the Dean of Men and the Dean of 
^^ omen particularlv, and of all members of the 
Faculty, to help vou orient yourself to the new 
conditions of University life. Tell us what your 
problems are and our help will be given gladly. Ask 
any questions you mav wish, even if vou are afraid 
that some of them mav seem simple. 

Remember that you are now a member of the 
University family. As a family, we are obligated, 
and it is our pleasure, to help one another. 

My office door always is open. ^ alk in when 
ever you wish.

Dean of Women 

It is my ojeal privilege to extend greetings and a 
hearty and cordial welcome to all new and returning 
sludents through the pages of the M-BOOK. 

A college education is both a privilege and a 
responsibility, and those of vou fortunate enough to 
have one should make the most of it. Remember 
you will get out of a college education just what

the beauty of our campus, and respect our traditions.

It is always a pleasure lo welcome the new IVesh- 
man <-lass as each iii('oiniii<!; class I)riM<is new ideas

ment and you will now become responsible for your 
own menial, social, moral, and physical training. 
This is a transition period to the time when you go 
out into the world on your own. 

Your very Aeed — whether academic, social, or 
moral — is recorded in your character and sometimes, 
unfortunately, in the premanent records of the 
University. Enjoy and make the best of this 
period of your career by- being industrious, studious, 
agreeable, and honest.

Student life Committee 

The F'acully Coiiiinillee on SludeiU Lile serves 
as one of the most important forces on the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Campus. It is the connec- 
ting link between the student hody and the Ad- 
ministration and serves to advise the Student 
Government Association, as set up by University 
regulations. Its main function is that of approving 
every club, honorary, or Greek letter organization 
which is established on the campus. Appointed by 
the President of the University, the committee is 
composed of faculty members who are interested in 
the several aspects of campus life. Headed by Dean 
James H. Reid, it maintains constant surveillance 
on activities, advises their affairs, and suggests im- 
provement for unsatisfactory conditions which may 
arise. The committee also manages university social 
affairs and sanctions various traditional week-en<ls, 
dances, and convocations. Other members of the 
committee are: Prof. Russell Allen, Mr. Allen 
Bowers, Dean Geary Eppley, Mr. Robert James, 
Professor Amihaud Kramer, Dr. Clarence Newell, 
Prof. James Outhouse, Mr. Warren Strausbaugh, 
Coach James Tatvmi, Dr. Charles White, Miss 
Dorothy Binns, Dr. Susan llarrnan. Miss Alma 
Preinkert, and Dean Adele Stamp. 


Student Government 

The Universily's organization for self-represenla- 
lion, the Student Government Assoriation, is (\\- 
vi<Je<l into three sections: the Kxeciitive Council, 
the Men's Lea<rue, and the Women's Lea<rue. 

Ilea«hn<i the S.G.A. is the Executive Council, the 
stu<Ient liroup uhich decides questions of student 
pohcy, appropriates activilv hinds, an(J supervises 
all extracurricular activities, through various com- 
mittees. The Men's and Women's League arc 
responsible for the enforcement of <"ampus regula- 

Through the S. G. A., the student activities fee is 
appropriated to linance <lances, games, shows, and 
other student activ^ities. The Executive Council 
meets every two weeks and all students are wel- 

Interested students join committees to perform 
the actual Association work. Qualified applicants 
head them each year. 

Meet your 8. G. A. and class officials, and ask 
questions about student activities. Only by main- 
taining an acute interest in campus affairs can you 
help to bring the improvements which many feel 
are needed.

On behalf of the student body, 1 take great

nominated from the floor of the S.G.A. at a specially 
designated meeting. 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 election campaigns are a 
colorful highlight of the school year.

through the use of committees, set up by the Exe- 
cutive Council. All students are eligible to work 
on SGA committees. 

Chairmanships are open to those students writing 
an application letter listing their qualifications and

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you on

extra-curricular activities. 

The Women's League office in the Dean of 
Women's Building will always be open to you — for

'I'lic Mcti's l>ea<iiie is the representative body of 
the male studetits ol" the Universitv servinjx to assist 
the Dean ol Men in adniinisterinji Lniversitv rnles 
and regulations, and assisting the dorm manager in 
enforcing the code of conduct Jor the men's dorm. 
There are two divisions of the League — the Exe- 
cutive Council and the Dormitory Council. 

"^rhe League uorks with the Dean of Men in 
[)lannitig dormilorv improvements and atlditions 
which will make vour slay at the Universitv more 
comforlahle and safe. Each year the Council 
awards a bronze cup to the outstan(hng male gra<i- 
uale based on character, achievement, and service 
to the Universitv. 

"^Fhe Executive Council is composed of the above 
oflficers and elected representatives of each class. 
Alpha E^hi Omega, Jnter-Eraternity Council, and 
Independent Student's Association. 

The Dormitorv Council serves as a disciplinarv 
board for offenders of the dormitory regulations and 
also works to encourage <lormitory activity an<l 
comradeship through the prf)ctors. 

Fhe proctors are students who maintain order 
and discipiiuc in ihe d(»rmi(ories and s<'rv<' as arl- 
visors an<l <"outisell(»rs to the students. Thev sec 
to it that «piiet hours are observed lor sludving, 
that rooMi:^ are kept clean, that health standards are 
maintaine<l, and that the other dormilorv regula- 
tions are not liroken. 



The jeweled and gold pin is the visible symbol of 
the social sorority to a college coed. It signifies the 
closely knit group which a sorority woman finds in 
her own Greek organization. 

To you who are about to enter your future sorority 
falls the task of choosing the one best suited for 
you. Your own personality is the key to your selec- 
tion. Open-mindedness in your approach towards 
all of the sororities is necessary, since each group is 
striving for the goals of friendship, scholarship, and 

Check all financial responsibilities which you'll be 
required to meet. Then join the group where you've 
had the most fun, meet the greatest number of 
'your type," and in which you believe you will find 
the greatest happiness. 

Don't be discouraged about losing a bid to the 
sorority of your choice. Often you will find that 
this can be rectified during informal rushing when 
you'll be able to look the sororities over more care- 

Sororities are one of your first introductions to 
college life. Meet the challenge directly; you will 
fmd much enjoyment in working together towards a 
better understanding of yourself, your friends, and 
your university.

Pledge Queen is named. 

Important Rush Rules 

All sorority women and students interested in 
rushing should be familiar with, understand, and ad- 
here to these rush rules. 

Formal rushing is the period beginning on Septem- 
ber 13, 1952, with open house teas, and continuing 
until pledging one week later. Rush functions 
will be held at specified times only. Alpha Episilon 
Phi, Phi Sigma Sigma, and Sigma Delta Tau will 
interrupt their rush program with the observance 
of Yom Kipper IJoli<lays, pledging their women a 
few days later than the <»lher sororities. 

No women, except sorority actives and pledges, 
may be present for rush fimctions. Rushees will be 
allowed to visit sorority houses only for specified 


standard Panhellenic Rules

To join or not to join, llial is the question. 
IJeterniining: this is a (Hfficult, yet important, prob- 
lem. A wise choice on your part will lead to manv 
happy days at Maryland and the establishment ol 
lifelong friendships. 

Often rushees wonder ''What is a fraternity and 
what is expected of me if I join one?" To answer 
this question, a group of Maryland men joined in a 
bull session and agreed that:' "A FRATERNITY 
IS: a group of men joined together through the 
bonds of brotherhood, striving toward their common 
attainment of high scholastic, social, moral, and 
spiritual goals and to aid in supplementing the Uni- 
versity program as a whole." These thoughts mav 
answer some of your rushing questions. 

While attending the various events of Formal 
Rushing, strive to visit as many of the houses as 
you can. In narrowing your choice, investigate the 
financial structure of your favorites. Perhaps an- 
other guide in helping you select the one you like 
most, is to discover which of your classmates have 
the same preference since you will be associated 
with them longer than any of the others in the 
fraternity. Above all, don't let some over-zealous 
group 'high pressure" you into their fraternity 
before vou've had an opportunity to make up your 
own mind. 

Your choice should be their choice ... it's up to

Fraternity Criteria 

The National Interfraternity Conference, founded 
in 1908, serves to bring about closer harmony among 
the 64 national fraternities in the group. Annually, 
national undergraduate councils and college ad- 
ministrators attend a conference, results of which are 
reported in the N. I. C. yearbook. 

A fraternity criteria, which serves to advance 
fraternity-educational institution cooperation, was 
submitted by JN. I. C. executives in 1934 and ap- 
proved by the American Association of Deans and 
Advisors of Men. It reads as follows: 

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

2. That the primary loyalty and responsibility 
of a student . . . with his institution are to the in- 
stitution, and that ... a chapter of a fraternity in- 
volves the definite responsibility . . . 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 

6. That the fraternity should (instill) principles 
of sound business practice both in (personal) and 
chapter finances ....

Fall and Winter Sports 

Athletics, intercollegiate and intramural, play an 
important part in the college career of every student 
of the University. The athletic department has set 
up a year-round sports program, with both varsity 
teams and dorm teams. Starting with the clash of 
football helmets on fall Saturday afternoons until 
the breaking of the tape at the last track meet, 
every student has an opportunity to participate in a 
wide sports program. No matter what your abili- 
ties may be, there is a place for you on a competitive 
athletic team, if you, as an individual, are willing to 
make the effort. 

Throughout the fall and winter seasons, avid 
sports fans fill Byrd Stadium to yell for the "big 
Red and White team." When cold spells hit Col- 
lege Park, the Ritchie Coliseum becomes a center 
of activity with the fastbreaking basketball teams, 
the "slugfest" boxing matches, and^the grunts and 
'Toan? of ^\fo-tlor-.

Coach Jim Taluiiis early prediction that the 1951 
football team would be the best team he had ever 
coached came true, as his Red and White eleven 
irounced the nation's number one team — Tennessee, 
28-13. in the Sugar Bowl. In battlinj; to the first 
undefeated, untied season for a Terp football team, 
the Terrapins established twelve new records. 
Toppling nine opponents during the regular season, 
the Marvland offense produced 52 touchdowns and 
38 extra points for a grand total of 354 points. 
Spearheaded bv Ed Modzelewski, the Terp back- 
lield gained 3,822 yards. 

West Virginia vielded a record of 602 yards to the 
Terp onslaught for the most ever gained against a 
single Old Line opponent. Joe Morning's return <>{' 
Missouri interception for a TJ) was another new all- 
lime mark. Quarterback Jack Scarbath connected 
for 23 passes in 44 attempts in the \avy game, 
giving an adequate account of Maryland's potential 
air power. The defensive corps was not to be 
outshown, as they established a new mark by snaring 
34 opponents' passes. This iniit also limited Mary- 
land's opponents to an average of only 75.7 yds. 
per game. 

A total of 17 leltermen have left the all-victorious 
team, while 24 ".M ' wearers will return. Missing 
will be the Terp's great Ail-American guard Bob 
W ard and Ed Modzelewski, who was voted the out- 
standing player in the New Year's Day Sugar Bowl 
classic in New Orleans. 


1 he Sugar Bowl Game 

\l(l. 2H, Term. Li 

Lasl year was one of the greatest in ihe sports 
history of the I niversity of Maryland. The foot- 
i)all team had a perfect season and lopped off their 
record with a smashing defeat over the team rated 
as the number one team in the nation . . . the 
University of Tennessee. The historic game took 
place at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on the first 
day of the New Year, 1952. 

The "big red team" from Tatum Town plowed 
through the Tennessee territory for a 28-13 victory. 
In doing so, the Old Liners unofficially became the 
1951 top team in the nation, replacing their sad- 
dened opponents, the Volunteers, in the slot. Ed 
"Mighty Mo" Modzelewski copped the Warren V. 
Miller Memorial Trophy as the outstanding player 
in the Sugar Bowl classic. "Mo" gained a total of 
153 yards rushing in 28 cracks at the Volunteer 
line during the afternoon. All the Terps ran ram- 
pant along with Mo and watched the surprising up- 
set of Ail-American Hank Lauricella of the Vol 

This is the second bowl classic in which Jim 
Tatum's boys have been victorious. The first one 
was the New Yearns day card at the Gator Bowl, 
in 1950, over Vlissouri. The Terps tallied 20-7 
over the Tigers in the Jacksonville tilt. 

Many Maryland fans made the trip south to the 
Sugar Bowl along with the team and the band. 
New Orleans rolled out a red carpet for the wildly 
celebrating Mary landers following the big game. 



Coach Doyle KoyaKs soccer team brought home a 
third straight Southern Conference championship 
last year, with co-captains Eric Baer and Don 
Soderberg leading the team through a season of six 
wins against two defeats with their conference slate 
being unniarre<l. 

The hooters inclu<ied Washington and Lee, 
Lovola, North Carolina State, Hopkins, TSorth 
( Carolina and Duke among their victims, while the 
two losses were suffered at the hands of Penn State 
and Connecticut, 

The Maryland coach will open the season without 
the services of Baer, Soderberg, John Hamilton, and 
James Savage. Baer, who made the Olympic final 
tryouts, Hamilton, and Savage, all were selected to 
the All-American and All-Southern Conference 
teams. Baer received the distinction of being the 
onlv unanimous choice on the All -Conference team.

iVIaryland's fleel-loole^l cross country learn 
slrelched its streak of >vins in dual competition 
through its (iflh consecutive season during the fall 
of 1951; however, the fifth straight Southern Con- 
ference 'title was just heyond their grasp. Coach 
Jim Kehoe's charges showed their winning heels to 
Navy, North Carohna, Duke, Pennsylvania, and 

lialance and depth prove<l to be t\>o key factors 
in Maryland's first indoor track championship. The 
tracksters broke a seven year stranglehold on the 
crown by North Carolina and came out on top in 
the meet at Chapel Hill. Al Buehler and Jack 
Unterkofler were repeat winners of their respective 
1950 titles. 

Top indoor meets in the East, where the Terps 
were very much in evidence, included the Evening 
Star games, the Philadelphia Inquirer games, and 
the Melrose games in Madison Square Garden, with 
Maryland's two mile relay team taking first place 
in the latter two meets.

Since Bud Millikan took over the coaching reins

title, the Terps lost to the Duke Blue Devils 51-48 
in the last four minutes of play- 

The hoopsters finished their season with an over-

Freshman Sports 

The tad that there is a place in Maryland athletics 
lor everyone cannot he overemphasized. Plenty 
ol' opportunity is availahie to every student; the 
stepping stones to the varsity teams are their fresh- 
men counterparts. 

Although the schedules for the freshmen teams 
are limited, these teams are given every encourage- 
ment and provided with able coaches. Future 
material for the varsity teams is picked from the 
freshmen squads. Therefore the development and 
progress of every frosh competitor means a great 
deal to the varsity coaches who fill their vacancies 
from the yearling squads. 

Frosh Football 

Last season the freshman gridders were coached 
hy Emmett Cheek. The yearlings only played two 
contests, defeating Bainbridge Prep School, while 
suffering a defeat to the North Carolina freshmen. 

JNewcomers to the varsity this year who were 
standouts for last year's freshmen are Ronny 
Waller, John Bowersox, and Don Shannon. Waller, 
whose main asset is speed, paced the yearling back-

Drama and Music 

Grea»epainl and tootlitjlils, le<»lartls, and ihe 
sound of an "inverted seventh" lure many >vould-be 
actors, dancers, and singers to try out for University 
drama and music productions each year. 

Opportunities for acting, directing, and backstage 
work are offered by the University Theater which 
annually presents four major productions and several 
centrally staged Play Circle productions. The 
main UT productions are held in the (Jenlral 
Auditorium while Play Circle shows "go on stage"" 
in R-112. UT welcomes with open arms all in- 
terested students who are willing to work in any 
phase of drama. 

Music at Maryland is provided by several or- 
ganizations which entertain both on and off the 
campus. The Men's Glee Club and the Women's 
Chorus which travel to nearby cities for concerts, 
are both eager to acquire new voices. The Band 
plays for parades, sports events, and recitals, while 
the Orchestra presents an annual concert. The 
newly formed Chapel Choir offers students with a 
good musical background a chance to sing for Sun- 
day services in the University Chapel. 

Musical productions are included in the Clef and 
Key and Modern Dance Club programs. The latter 
group also gives an annual concert. Last year Clef 
and Key, the Modern Dance Club, and University 
Theater combined to present the musical production 
"Good ^ews."

Clef and Key 

OJficrrs to he elected in the fall. 
Faculty Advisor ..T>R. Westervelt Romaine 

This year. Clef and Key came into its own as an 
outstanding music organization. The culmination 
of the past year's efforts was the production of the 
musical comedy ''Good News." This performance 
was unique in that it marked the first truly success- 
ful "marriage"" of Clef and Key, University Theatre, 
and the Modern Dance Club. The production was 
a huge success featuring flappers, the Charleston, 
raccoon coats of the "Roaring 20's. ' Even in- 
adequate staging facilities were no detrement. The 
cast had a wonderful time presenting this comedy 
to the University, and the University enjoyed see- 
ing the "flaming youths" cavort on stage. 

On tap for this year is a production of a similar 
nature, perhaps more elaborate than "Good News." 
The possibilities for student activities in Clef and 
Key productions are almost unliinited. Casts are 
enormous and roles range from the leading soprano 
to the almost-forgotten alto in the chorus. If acting 
and singing aren't your forte, there is plenty of need 
for back stage and house committee members. All 
students are urged to participate in Clef and Key if 
thev have anv theatrical bent at all. 

"Here is the Drag, see how it goes . . .'" sings 
the flapper in musical comedy "Good News''

considerably by the marching of the band and the 
baton-twirling of the majorettes. Outstanding 
among this past year's events was the trip to New 
Orleans for the Sugar Bowl. The Maryland Band 
was acknowledged to be one of the finest bands ever 
to perforin in the Sugar Bowl. 

Membership in the band is open to all students 
interested in music of this type and who are willing 
to give the time necessary to maintain the high 
standards of the band. Awards for service to the 
band are made each spring at the Awards Assembly.

The Modern Dance Club is the nucleus of all

responsible for I lie dance sequences in "(rood ISews" 
and for I he May Day pageanl. The club gives 
frequent concerts in local high schools to stiniulal<' 
interest in creative <lance. Membership is open t(> 
all stuflents on campus. Meetings are on Tuesday 
at 7 |>. rn. and Thursday at 4 p. m. 



For each of you there is a group here whose con- 
cern is your happiness, born of "'the peace of God 
which passeth all understanding." This group is 
the religious club of your own faith, organized on 
campus to help you more fully understand the im- 
portance of God in your life. 

As you and your group share and increase this 
understanding, religion will become a design for 
living and a cause for working. As you learn these 
concepts you will be able to answer your own prob- 
lems and questions about life. 

In order to meet the problems of the complex 
world in which we find ourselves living, you must 
thoroughly answer these questions in your mind by 
being aware of the truths of all faiths and by dis- 
solving religious prejudices, and working toward 
insoluble bonds of mutual understanding. The at- 
tainment of a brotherhood of man, which under- 
stands each other and works together, is the project 
of the Student Religious Council. 

To help you achieve this understanding they advo- 
cate a five point program: worship . . . pray . . . 
serve . . . evangelize . . . and partake offelloivship. In 
this way you can become sure of the existence of 
God, wholeheartedly embrace your fellow men, and 
truly enjoy your campus religious club experiences. 
No matter what faith you are or what you be- 
lieve, if you believe with others, vour group ^^'II 
become an integral part of your education. Doul 
skimp on this phase of vour learnitig il will mean 
a fidU-r life.

Baseball Coach 
Burton Shipley 


The Maryland baseball team completed its 29th 
season under the tutelage of Coach Burton Shipley 
with a season's record of 11 wins and 9 losses. 
Last season marked the first time in three years 
that the Terrapin baseball team did not make the 
trip to the Southern Conference tournament. 

Bernie Faloney and Chester Hanulak, both of 
football fame, bolstered Shipley's offense last year. 
Faloney proved to be the best hitter on the team 
with a .357 average to beat out George Howard, 
the only other regular to hit over the 300 mark. 
Hanulak led the team in stolen bases. 

Connie Hemphill led the hill contingent, posting a

Maryland Songs and Cheers 

Perhaps the two most important things connected 
with a loothall game, besides a winning team, are 
the college cheers and band. No college's story 
could 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. Mary- 
land has its share of expressive songs woven around 
the customs of the University. Cheers add to the 
enthusiasm and color of the big games. In order 
to be able to keep up with the crowd you will want 
to learn the songs and cheers which form a tradi- 
tional part of your college life. 

The main organizers of the pre-game pep rallies 
are the members of the Student Activities com- 
mittee. The purpose of this organization is to 
back the teams by rallies, away-game send-offs 
and airport welcomes, and to increase student in- 
terest in athletic programs. 

The cheerleaders take over where the Student 
Activities committee stops. Their task is to pro- 
mote organized cheering throughout the crowd. 
The cheerleaders are invaluable in pre-game warm- 
ups in cheering and songs, just as their participation 
in the numerous half-time activities; aid the cheer- 
leaders in providing the much publicized big game

Point Count 

After each Maryland touchdown it is the 
custom to count the number of points that 
the team had scored so far. The cheer- 
leaders will lead in this counting. 



Now that you have read the 1956 edition of the 
A/ Book, we of the staff sincerely hope that you have 
enjoyed it; that our work on the handhook durino: 
the summer has l)een of vahie to incoming students 
in their first days on the campus; and that our efforts 
will spur you on to a successful college career. 

Our little "freshie " Terry Pinn, who has travelled 
too enthusiastically through the pages with you, 
didn't heed the advice given him when he arrived. 
His playing interrupted his studying and thus his 
college days, short hut sweet, were all in vain. 
Let the mythical little terrapin serve as an object 
lesson to all incoming students. 

As editor-in-chief of your freshman handbook, I 
can only say in conclusion: "Good luck, and make 
the most of your college career at our great alma 
mater . . . the University of Maryland."
