The University of Maryland offers excellent opportunities for a good general education or for specialized courses. It has a good and devoted faculty. The members of that faculty are anxious to help you— through teaching, advice and counsel— but the faculty cannot do your learning for you. That is up to you. Treat the opportunity which is offered you here as something valuable— something worth having and worth nourishing. The University of Maryland will do its part if you do yours. With kindest regards and best wishes for all of you, I am Sincerely T. R.

However, Maryland's football schedule is as shown. 11 General Information ACADEMIC Since the object of attending a University is to receive the best possible education, it is neces- sary for each student to attend classes regu- larly. Classes begin on the hour and last for 50 minutes. If a teacher fails to appear for his class, students are not required to remain. However, they must wait a specified length of time before they may leave: 20 minutes for a Dean, 15 minutes for a Doctor, and 10 minutes for an instructor. At the University there is no unlimited cut system. Each instructor usually informs his class at the beginning of the course how he will handle cuts. After three unexcused ab- sences, a student is reported to his Dean and his parents are notified. Too many, absences lower a grade and may eventually result in a complete course failure. To drop a course, the student must do so before a set time each semester, as specified in the semester's schedule of classes. Per- mission from the student's Dean and a small fee are required to drop a subject. Exams usually include three one-hour exams and a two-hour final in each course. If a student misses an exam, he may take a make- up exam upon permission of the instructor and payment of a $1.00 fee to the registrar. 12 ACTIVITIES FEE . All students on the undergraduate level pay a Student Activities Fee during registration. This fee supports such activities as student publications, the University Theater and Clef and Key productions, dances and other campus activities open to the entire student body. ATHLETIC FEE . - This fee is also paid at registration. The tee covers the cost of admission to all intei- coUegiate sport events held on the College Park campus. An athletic coupon book is issued to each student, and a prescribed cou- pon from this book must be presented at each event for admittance. Along with the iieces= sary coupon, the book holder must show his ID card at the time of admittance. BOOKS AND SUPPLIES , , • • , ^ The Student Supply Store in the Adrnmistra- tion building basement serves the needs oi I he student body by selling school suppl.es and the required texts for the courses ^>ff^':^;/,^ '^^ semester. The store also carries a full line of novelty and souvenir items. COMMUNICATIONS Also located in the Ad building- basement is the campus post office. Each studeiit is as- signed a post office box at registration whic^ he will share with one or more other students during the academic year. The post office handles regular mail, communications f/,^^ ' ^h^ University and its organizations to the stu- dent. 13 The post office sells stamps, but full mailing facilities can be had at the College Park post tt'si^tf Gil''' ^'^^^^"^ ^^^^ ^^-- ^-- Campus telephones may be used to make on-campus calls. Off-campus calls may be made on pay phones located in the dormi- tories and other campus buildings Telegrams may be sent from the campus tele- phone exchange located in the east end of the Education building basement. Incoming wires are either delivered or phoned to student resi^ berTwA'vSf ^?!^^- "' M^' P^one num- 061 IS WA 7-3800 and dorms may be requested trom the operator. BOARD All students living "on the hill'' (in the perma- nent dorms) are required to eat in the Dining Hall. Dining Hall cards are issued at regis- tration. All other students must make their own arrangements. A cafeteria is located on the lower floor of the Dining Hall, serving meals at reasonable rates. There are several eating establishments in the nearby College Fark area and several Greek-letter houses take in a few boarders. The Recreation Hall on the southwest side ot campus provides snacks and short orders for all students. This is a favorite meeting place for that "coffee break" between classes JNext to the famous Rossborough Inn on the boulevard is the University Dairy, sei-ving ice cream and other dairy products every day except Sunday. ^ ^ 14 INFIRMARY The University Infirmary is located west of the Dining Hall. It is staffed by the University physician and nurse, providing routine medical service to all undergraduate students. The phone number of the Infirmary is Extension 326 on campus phones. LAUNDRY The University does not provide a laundry service for the students. However, there are several laundry and dry cleaning concerns in College Park. Several dorms have coin-oper- ated automatic washers and dryers. Students may also mail their laundry home at the usual postal rates. LIBRARY The University library and the library annex are open 7:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., Monday through Friday, 7:30 a. m. to 5 p. m. on Saturday, and from 3 p. m. until 10 p. m. on Sunday. Reserve books may be taken out at 8 p. m. on weekdays and returned at eight the next morning. Books taken from the loan desk may be taken for a 14-day period and may be renewed. Overdue books from the loan desk receive a five cent per day fine, and overdue books taken from the reserve shelves are fined according to the number of minutes and/or hours late. 15 MEKTING ROOMS AND ARKANCiEMENTS Details on reserving meeting rooms for on- campus functions may be found in the current issue of the Academic Regulations bulletin. PARKING AND TRAFFIC All students, members of the staff and faculty are assigned parking lot spaces during regis- tration. All autos are registered and are assigned a parking lot sticker which must be displayed prominently on the rear window of the car. Parking on campus roads is for- bidden. Traffic and parking regulations are enforced by State Police. PUBLICATIONS DISTRIBUTION The Diamondback is available in the base- ment of the Ad building, Library, Rec Hall, Dining Hall and in most classroom buildings. The Old Line is also distributed at the same places on campus. The Terrapin is distributed to individual students in the middle of May.

TRANSPORTATION College Park is served by the Greyhound and Trailways bus lines. Local bus lines serve Washington and, the nearby suburban areas. Greyhound schedules and tickets are obtained in the Varsity Grill. Trailways and local bus information is found in the College Park Delicatessen. 16 RECREATION HALL Located next to the Women's Field House, the "Rec Hall" serves all students in many ways. There is a large and a small lounge, providing the latest in periodicals. The large lounge boasts a TV set, and the small one may be used for meetings. The Rec Hall also provides facilities for cards, pool, and chess. There is also an adequate snack bar in the charge of genial Bill Hoff. TICKET DISTRIBUTION Tickets for dance, musical and dramatic productions are handled by the University Theater box office located in the Education building basement. The box office usually opens one week prior to the run of a pro- duction.

After a semester of many adjustments, most students manage to learn what items are necessary to live comfortably in their home away: from home. However, a few words of advice may go a long way in helping the stu- dent living away from home for the first time. It is a good idea to see the room you have been assigned to before moving in. Also, it is a good idea to meet your roommate(s) if this is at all possible. Not all dormitories are built alike, and dormitory rooms vary in size and closet facilities. By talking it over with your prospective roommate you can de- cide between yourselves what furnishings, such as radios and lamps, you will want to bring. A typical room for two men may have a closet and chest of drawers for each of you, a large study table with two chairs, and either a double bunk or two singles. If you desire to make your accommodations as home-like as possible, you may hang curtains, install floor lamps and bring that old easy chair sitting in the attic. Of course, no equipment of the university may be changed, altered or damaged in any way. As for clothes to bring, this matter is up to the individual concerned. This is not a fashion book, and a student cannot be told what he should or should not wear. However, students are advised to be sensible and prac- tical in their dressing habits whether they are attending classes, sport events or going out on dates. Maryland is not a "coat and tie" college, nor is it a "blue jean" school. It cannot be said any one particular cloth- ing fad has caught on here at Maryland. Many men on campus wear khaki trousers and white shirts to classes, but even this cannot be considered "standard." Letter awards and sweaters with high school colors are taboo on campus. They may have meant something in high school, but have little recognition value iat Maryland. 21 What to Bring to College, Coeds So you want to know what to bring to college! Just remember that your life away from home will demand many of the same things that were necessary when you lived at home. If it rained sometimes at home, count on double that amount here at Maryland and be sure to bring a slicker and boots. To be safe and sure of the best wardrobe, buy carefully and tastefully. Avoid that pale champagne cashmere with rhinestone and pearl trimming and look for some easy-to-care- for pullovers to match your skirts. If you aren't sure of the best in college fashions, avoid buying all of your clothes until after you have returned to school for a week or two, and check on what the upper class, experi- enced gal goes for. The best advice from a college shop of a large department store may be far from the needs of a truly busy and practical coed. Warm wool skirts, easily pressed, should mix and match your 4 or 5 favorite sweaters. Cardi- gans and at least one blazer will provide in- between weather warmth. Saddles still lead the field, with loafers close behind. Come cold weather, you will need a comfort- able and practical coat for class. And of course, don't forget your dressy clothes, gloves, and a hat for Sunday. The Saturday night parties and dates call for 22 something special in heels and hose. In the other extreme, a pair of well-worn dungarees and soft shirt fill the bill for lounging and studying in the dorm or house. Now in the line of furnishings . . . white ruffle curtains that need laundering every two weeks aren't the best idea. Try tailored decora- tion schemes with comfort and practicability in mind. Good lighting is most important. Radio, rugs and records make your new home more re- laxing. Dont bring all the personal dust- catchers, tho'! Your books and current wardrobe alone will take up every square inch of space, without having to harbor the col- lection of knick-knacks! In other words, perspective 4.00 scholar, social whirler, and activity bounder, bring to college essential and practical items ... to allow yourself plenty of time to enjoy your coming year! t^ \4--~. ?Aj^'^\m^^ — — JK .yM-^* isWfcl' IsbtK A Arts and Sci«ni:«a AA Chemistry L«bs.

Animal Husbandry Pavilion Marjjland's oldest structure— the Rossborough Inn history and traditions You are now entering into a phase of your life which you will always cherish. College memories are among the happiest ones, and the University of Maryland has many such memories to offer. Your first experience in college tradition will probably be the "Hello Habit." As you walk through the campus greet your new friends with a cheerful hello. Your pride in the University of Maryland will increase as you visit the Rossborough Inn and the Chapel, attend convocations and sport activities, and enjoy the Homecoming dance and May Day. As the year goes on, you will find yourself engulfed in Maryland tradition. For example, you will begin class each hour to the sound of "Maryland, My Maryland" drifting from the Chapel tower. During your first year at Maryland Univers- ity you will be introduced to her tradition and history which enrich campus life and are cherished by the Maryland alumni. 27 History The University of Maryland dates back to 1807, when the first school of the University, the College of Medicine, was founded in Bal- timore. In the more than 140 years since its founding, the University has expanded, both physically and scholastically until it now oc- cupies a position as one of the leading univer- sities in the country. After the College of Medicine was founded, there followed within a few years the estab- lishment of several other professional schools. 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. At College Park, in 1856, Maryland State College, the first agricultural college in the United States was established under the name of the Maryland Agricultural College. The college was financed by the sale of stock at $25 a share. In 1862, this college became, in part, a state institution with the passage of the Land Grant Act by Congress. It was one of the first schools to benefit from this act and the sub- sequent federal aids to education. In 1920, the professional schools of the University of Baltimore, and the Maryland State College in College Park were merged to form what is now known as the University of Maryland. 28 University Seal Marvland's <;rt>ia Sfal, thf- ol.lpst of thp statp seals, was'spnt to the j)rnviii<p of Marylaod in 1H48 by Lord Baltimore. Morp than :i(Mi ypars old. tlip seal is the only state seal of strictly heraldic cliaracter. The escutcheon bears the Calvert and Crosslands arms quartered. The first and fourth quarters are the Calvert Arms. The spcoud and third quarters are from the Crossland. Baltimore's maternal arms. An earl's cor(»net and full-faced helnipt are surmounted on the quarterinj-'s. These indicate Lord Baltimore's rank in America. The Calvert <rest rests on the helmet. The escutcheon is supported on one side by the tigure of a farmer, and on the other by that of a Hsherman — svmbols of each of Lord Baltimore s estates. Marvland and Avalon, Below the figures is the scroll bearing the Calvert motto: "Fatti Maschii Parole Famine." which means "Deeds are Males; words, females." On a border encircling the seal is the legend : I'niversity of Maryland . . . 1807 •. . . I.S.jO . . . VJ'2.0. 29 Traditions . . . Maryland, like all colleges, has traditions freshmen learn to love, and others remember long after college days are over. As soon as school starts, the football season begins; many traditions surround the Old Liner's love of sports and celebrations. Pep rallies before the game encourage school spirit. Testudo, the huge mascot for the Uni- versity, used to rest on a pedestal in front of the Coliseum, and was usually found missing early in the season. Traced from school to school, he invariably returned just before a big game. Now, however, the bronze prodigal is permanently stationed at the entrance of Byrd Stadium; his wandering days have come to a close — we hope! Homecoming highlights the fall season, when old grads return for the game, a queen is crowned, fraternity and sorority houses are resplendent with decorations, all the women wear chrysanthemums and everyone attends the Homecoming Dance. The annual Fresh- men-Sophomore tug-of-war over Paint Branch Creek precedes the game. The Rossborough Club presents its annual three dances during the year. At Christmas time a pageant is held, fol- lowing the lighting of a Christmas tree. Dur- 30 ing the week preceding Christmas vacation, carols ring out on the campus between classes. The carols are played from the dining hall. When spring comes, one of the important events is the Interfraternity Sing, followed by May Day, one of the most colorful spec- tacles at the University. The May Queen's Crowning, the tapping of outstanding junior women by Mortar Board, and a pageant pre- sented to entertain the queen are part of the traditional program. At this time, too, one of Maryland's keenest rivals, Johns Hopkins, is encountered in the annual lacrosse game between the two schools. This meeting 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 every spring. The year is not complete without a visit to the Tunnel. Tradition has it that a couple must kiss on their first trip through this secluded spot. Just before graduation the annual Honors and Awards Assembly is held, in which recog- nition of scholarship, sports, ROTC, and other phases of University life is given. With graduation exercises, the seniors leave the University life behind them, but keep its memories always in their hearts. 31 administration TO MEMBERS OF THE FIRST YEAR CI^SS: University life basically is a hard, dull rou- tine in which men and women work long hours to achieve their educational ambitions. There are times when every student becomes discouraged, but at such moments he should think of the splendid goal that he is seeking to achieve. Every student should remember that he or she will succeed only by his or her own efforts and by diligent application to the routine of study. It is true, though, the the members of the Faculty of the University are friends of the students and stand ready to help students to translate their ambitions and resolyes into actual achievements. It will always be a pleasure to have you come to see me whenever you feel that I »an be of help and I am sure that every member of the Faculty feels the same way. Sincerely, H. C. BYRD, President 32 ■rpl Dean of Women ^ i « It is with a great deal of pleasure that through the pages of the M Book I am able to extend a hearty and cordial welcome to all new and returning students. To the new stu- dents may I say I hope your years here will be busy, happy, profitable ones. I hope you will love our campus, enjoy its beauty, and respect our traditions. You will find Mary- land a friendly place, and lasting friendships will be made during your college years. A college education is both a privilege and a responsibility. See that you make the most of this great opportunity which you are for- tunate enough to have. The door of my office and those of my assist- ants are always open to you. We want to know you, so stop by and get acquainted. ADELE H. STAMP, Dean of Women It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome the Class of 1957 and I hope each member of the class will have many interesting and broad- ening experiences during their sojourn at the University of Maryland. College life is co-operative and all must work for the success of the individual and the in- dividual must work for the success of the group. Here at Maryland you will find the faculty, administration, and student body glad to assist you. The Department of Student Welfare, as the name implies, is constituted to assist students where needed and all members of the de- partment will be glad to have you come to visit with them for a friendly chat or to discuss a problem.

This symbolic gesture shows the heginning of a new SOA SG A Let me take this opportunity to extend to you a hearty and sincere welcome to our campus community at the University of Maryland. The student body and the Student Govern- ment Association are glad to have you with us. We hope your stay at the University will be both fruitful and pleasant in that you will achieve your academic goals and be active participants in campus life. Maryland has a lot to offer you. Judging from the freshman classes which have pre- ceded you, you have much to offer Maryland. The University has moved steadily ahead in many fields — education, research, athletics, and extra curricular activities. Just as we seniors have been a part of this growing and expand- ing process, you, too, will have an integral part in our alma mater's future. This will not come about by the mere saying of these words, but will be the result of your interest and par- ticipation in campus affairs. We cannot urge you too strongly 1^^^^ "^B*" to become good schol- ^^ ^ ars and good citizens ; ^"'*^'% — it is up to you, ^.««^ Class of 1957! CRAIG FISHER '^ SGA President , _ Student Government Association The University's organization for self-repre- sentation, the Student Government Associa- tion, is composed of three divisions: the Executive Council, the Men's League, and the Women's League. Heading the SGA is the Executive Council, the student group which decides questions of student policy, appropriates activity funds, acts upon suggestions for improvement, ^ and supervises all extra-curricular activities, through its various committees. All students are welcome to attend the Council's meetings which are held every two weeks. The Men's and Women's Leagues are re- sponsible for the enforcement of campus regulations. Your student activities fee, appropriated through the SGA, finances dances, the Uni- versity Theater, student publications, and other student activities. Meet your SGA and class officials, and ask questions about student activities. You are urged to help the Association perform its actual work by joining committees. Only by maintaining an acute interest in campus affairs can you help to bring the improvements which many feel are needed. 42 Elections Student Government Association and class offices are filled by elections which take place in the spring. If three candidates for offices are nominated, a primary is held a week prior to the final election. Any student having a 2.0 over-all average may run for an office. Can- didates for Executive Council posts must be nominated from the floor of the SGA at a special designated meeting. Class office can- didates 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. Committees The Student Government Association oper- ates through the use of committees, set up by the Executive Council. All students are eligible to work on SGA committees.

So study ! If I can be of any service to you, please do not fail to call on me. Best of luck to you all. DON GOLDSTEIN (Glip) Men's League Pres. President. J)onald (Glip) Goldstein Vice-President... — Charles Moore The men's representative body on campus, the Men's League, assists the Dean of Men m administering University rules and regula- tions, and assists the dorm manager in en- forcing the code of conduct. The League ^ is divided into two sections — the Executive Council and the Dormitory Council. . The Executive Council, in addition to the above officers is composed of elected repre- sentatives of each class. Alpha Phi Omega, Interfraternity Council and Independent Stu- dents' Association. The Dormitory Council functions as a dis- ciplinary board for offenders of the dormitory regulations and also works to encourage dormi- tory activity and comradeship through the proctors. The proctors are students who maintain order and discipline in the dormitories ^ by seeing quiet hours are observed for studying, rooms are kept clean, and other dormitory regulations are observed. Proctors also act as advisors and counsellors to the students. Each year the Council awards a bronze cup to the graduating man who has done most for male students on campus. 49 Among the several purposes of honor societies on the campuses of American universities are the recognition of excellence in scholarship as well as superior citizenship, character, and leadership. There are many well known national honorar- ies oh the campus of the University of Mary- land. Two of them recognize academic achieve- ment during the freshman year. Others award membership for superior accomplish- ments in the several colleges and many depart- ments of the University. One, Phi Kappa Phi, extends membership to students in all colleges and departments. All honor societies maintain very high stand- ards for eligibility and membership is some- thing to be highly valued. Election to an hon- orary is within the grasp of every student who is willing to strive for distinction in his chosen field. Being tapped for membership in any honorary is an ex- perience to be remem- bered through the years as it is an honor that come only to those few who excel in some phase of university life. JAMES H. REID Chairman, Student Life Committee May Day Queen ^ honoraries . . .

I, for one, place a high value on the educational potential of such activities and, therefore, firmly believe in the encouragement of student organizations. Obviously each student is most apt to devote his energies to that field of activity in which he feels he has some competence; interest and ability naturally have an affinity for each other. This basis for choosing activities is not only natural, but valid. However, since college life is higher education, some thought should be given by the individual concerned not only to what he can contribute, but also to what he can ac- quire. College is not >, only a preparation for life, but a part of life itself. Take your place in this community and ^ ;^k its groups. ^^ |1 LEON P.

Of more immediate interest to many stu- dents will be the completion of the long- awaited Student Union. Aside from the con- struction of the Chapel, no other building on campus has been of more interest to the stu- dent body than the Union — their building. Scheduled for a next summer opening was the General Activities building. How- ever, this project, which includes the 17,000- seat auditorium, is behind schedule due to changes in the original plans. One of these changes now includes the addition of a men's swimming pool in this large building. Com- pletion date is now set for the fall of 1954. Other constructions are being made on the campus. East of the Boulevard a ten-unit fraternity-sorority row project is nearing completion for occupancy this fall.. Sororities to move into their new homes include Gamma Phi Beta, Sigma Kappa, Kappa Alpha Theta, Alpha Epsilon Phi and Pi Beta Phi. Their fraternity neighbors will be Delta Tau Delta, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Sigma Kappa and Phi Kappa Sigma. 37 drama and music i-4! Romeo and Juliet one of University Theater' H out- standing presentations Each year an increasing number of students are discovering the wealth of pleasure, satis- faction, and friendship to be found by par- ticipating in the University's Music and Drama activities. Performances by the Men's Glee Club, the Women's Chorus, and the Univers- ity Theater are annual highlights, cherished long among campus memories. Students who are interested in singing or acting should report immediately to the audi- tions and tryouts when they are announced. Others, who have preference for backstage work, will find many possbilities and should register their interests with the theater's technical director. UT offers three major plays and several studio performances to provide constant opportunities for newcomers. Each spring the theater and music organizations jointly present a musical production, which_ allows full expression of campus talent in sing- ing, dancing, and act- ing. All of this work, play, and con- genial companionship makes a rich contri- bution to the Univers- ity's cultural pro- gram. DR. GROVER C.

Pointing Faifh Godward. Side by side with the symbols of academic discipline as expressed in class rooms and laboratories, the Chapel of the University of Maryland bears witness that religious faith and intellectual integrity go hand in hand in building a whole person. Here, chaplains of many faiths join together in an active religious ministry to the students at the University. Services conducted for members of specific faiths and denominations go side by side with joint worship experiences that all may share. Through competent counselling opportunities by trained personnel, students and chaplains are brought into a personal relationship hard to measure in its fullest implications. When a great state university takes the lead in making possible such expressions, religious minds everywhere rejoice in such leadership. The Chapel of the University of Maryland, as a focus of religious faith, serves ever to re- mind us of the necessity of maintaining the life of the spirit in terms of the Creator who made us, REVEREND JESSE W.

During these next four years, a sorority can do much to make your college life full and exciting. Besides helping you adjust to this large campus and providing a second home where you can establish con- genial friendships, the close ties of sorority life can do much to help you develop broader viewpoints, more understanding, loyalty, graciousness, and social responsibility. When you rush, look each group over care- fully, for they all have their good points. If you don't receive the bid of your choice, don't worry. There are many groups in which you can be a happy member, and the Panhellenic Council is proud of all the fine sororities on campus. If you don't find a nook in a sorority, there are many other organizations that can give you a well- rounded college ex- perience. All we ask is that you take an active in- terest in campus life, and if we can help you do it, we want to.

Kathleen Patrick Secre tary - J anet Gadd Treasurer..... Rita Bajkowska Rush Chairman^ Alice Johnson The purpose of the Panhellenic Council is to serve as a group to promote cooperation in inter-society relationships, to maintain high scholarship and social standards and to com- pile rules governing rushing, pledging, and initiation of sorority women. Important Rush Rules All sorority women and students interested in rushing should be familiar with, understand, and adhere to these rush rules. Formal rushing is the period beginnning on September 12, 1953, with open house teas, and continuing until pledging on September 20, 1953. Rush functions will be held at specified times only. Alpha Epsilon Phi, Phi Sigma Sigma, and Sigma Delta Tau will interrupt their rush program with the observance of Yom Kipper holidays, pledging their women a few days later than the other sororities. No women, except sorority actives, pledges and rushes may be present for rush functions. Rushees will be allowed to visit sorority houses for specified functions only. 110 Standard Panhellenk Rules Any woman eligible for matriculation at the University and un-affiliated with any National Panhellenc Fraternity is eligible for rushing. During rush week, if a woman expresses her preference in writing, or formally accepts a bid, or wears a sorority's colors during open rushing following rush week, she is ineligible to pledge another sorority. A pledgeship expires one calendar year from the date of pledging at which time the student is eligible to pledge another sorority. This rule is binding to any campus on which the student may matriculate. Initiation of any pledge results from the completion of fifteen credit hours in the pre- cedng semester at the University with at least a C average and no failures for that semester. These women must be students in good stand- ing and cleared with the Dean of Women's office.

Annually, national undergrad- uate councils and college administrators at- tend a conference, the results of which are reported in the NIC yearbook. A fraternity criteria, which serves to ad- vance fraternity-education institution coopera- tion, was submitted by NIC executives m 1934 and approved by the Amercan 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 chapters. 9 That the primary loyalty and responsi- bility of a student . . . with his institution are to the institution, and that • . a chapter of a fraternity involves the definite responsibility ... for the conduct of the individual. .3 That the fraternity should promote con- duct consistent with good morals and good taste 4 That the fraternity should create an atmosphere which will stimulate substantia rntelTectual progress and superior intellectual achievement.. 120 Interfraternity Council President John Martin, Jr. Vice-President Bernie Gross Secretary William Kline Treasurer. - ~ Ray Hagle Faculty Advisor. Dean Geary Eppley The Interfraternity Council is composed of representatives of each of the fraternities on campus who meet to promote and maintain friendly and cooperative relations among the fraternities.

There is an excellent intramural program the year around for students who do not make the varsity teams. The Athletic Council sponsors an intercol- legiate program in all sports at the University. Every student at the University is invited and urged to come out for these sports. Don't wait for a special invitation or don't assume you are not good enough for the best. If you can't make the team, join with the rest of the student body in being the extra player in the stands to create the spirit which makes the men who finally earn the honor to represent you play their best. If you can't play a sport, be a sport. The morale of the stu- dent body is impor- tant to the caliber of your athletic teams. JAMES TATUM Director of Athletics A capacity crowd at Byrd Stadium Commentary . . . For over sixty years the University of Mary- land has participated in college sports, but never has there been such emphasis on school improvement as in the last five years. Under the supervision of the Director of Athletics James Tatum, all major sports have pro- gressed, and have established prominent standings for Red and White among other major colleges in the nation. In the last three years of intercollegiate activity Maryland teams have a record of 266 victories against 124 defeats and nine ties. However, this is an incomplete picture of how far the home team has come in the last few years. Suffice it to say Maryland is gaining steadily as a sports might to be reckoned with. The Terrapin teams are members of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and the United States Inter-Collegiate Lacrosse Association. More recently Maryland joined up with North Carolina, South Carolina, Wake .Forest, Duke, Clemson and North Carolina State to form the Atlantic Coast Conference. Marvland fans are currently looking for- ward to the completion of a new 17,0()0-seat indoor auditorium, scheduled for a fall open- ing next year. This project now under con- struction will be one of the few of its type on the east coast. It will house all indoor sport activities, including track, basketball, wrest- ling and boxing. The building will also bring together under one roof the entire College of Physical Education. 130 Statistics . . . From fall to spring 1952-53 was a year of beautiful victories. Starting with the foot- ball teams first win of the season over Mis- souri University on September 20, right up until the tennis teams last win of the year on May 16, Maryland's varsity teams have been adding new chapters in the history books. Below are the overall-dual team competition records — they stand on their own.

The following week, bad TuA followed \he Old Liners to Mobile, and •Bama handed the home team another de- feat. However Maryland maintained a memorable record 7n many 'departments. Offensively th gridders were ninth nationally with o ^9.^ Kis famous option play coupled with his dead^ Ty passing, netting .59 , completions in 173 attempts.

On defense, tackle Dick Modze'ewski made nine out of eleven consensus P""^^"!l *^= Look magazine's "Lineman of the Year. 132 Maryland's power in action '^^:^ mm Cross Country and Indoor Track Coach JIM KEHOE Coach Jim Kehoe's cross country team turned in another outstanding season despite the fact their 29-win streak in dual meets was snapped by Navy in the opening match of the year. Losing to the Middies, 28-27, the Terp harriers went on to defeat Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Duke and Richmond. John Tibbetts was the first man home in every race except against Richmond. During the indoor track season, Maryland consistently made first in the relays, the 100- yard dash and the pole vault. The mile relay team won the Conference relay at the Evening Star games, and they also took the Southern Conference title. Also at the Evening Star games, the two- mile relay team took first. Mel Schwartz and George Butler always scored in the pole vault, while Dave Matthews won every century he entered. 134 Soccer Coach DOYLE RUiAL For the first time in four years Coach Doyle Royal's soccer team didn't win the Southern Conference crown. Although the Terp pitchmen finished unde- feated in four conference games and tied champion Duke, 1-1, the Blue Devils played and won two more league games giving them the title on percentage points. Among the victims of the Terrapin hooters were Washington and Lee, North Carolina State, John Hopkins, Loyola, North Carolina and Georgetown. The only loss was in the opening game to Penn State. Coach Royal will be faced with the problem of filling his outside positions, two halfback slots, and a fullback post as this season opens. Tom Baden was rated All-America and All- South for the Liners, while Hector Ormachea, Jim Deider and Mario Eterovic received All- South recognition. . 135 Basketball Coach -.. BUD MILLIKAN Registering an impressive 15-win, 8-loss over- all record, Maryland's basketball team ad- vanced to the semi-finals of the Southern Conference play-offs before losing to champion Wake Forest, 61-59. This marked the third successive year Coach Bud Millikan has had the hardwood five up for the tournament. The defensively-minded Terps finished sec- ond nationally in total team defense as they held all their opponents to an average of 54.3 points per game last season. Gene Shue led the team in nearly every department during the season, scoring a total of 508 points. This new record breaks that of 265 chalked up by Lee Brawley in the 1951-52 season. Walkin' On Air!^ ^^m Wrestling Coach WILLIAM KROUSE For the third straight year the grapplers have whisked through their season with an out- standing team record of six wins, one lost and no ties. The Terps ended up the season cap- turing the Southern Conference championship by scoring 40 points in that tournament. Stepping into the winners' circle with eight of the team's compilation of 37 wins was Rod- ney Norris. The red-head has been 137-pound Conference champ for two years and was voted last year the "Most Outstanding Wrestler of the Southern Conference Tournament for Backing Norris are the Fischer brothers, Bob and Ernie. The latter has lost only a single match in 44 tries, and has been 167- pound champ for two years. On the other hand, Bob has been 157-pound division champ for the same period. Team captain Jack Shan- nan was another consistent winner, winning the 182-pound Conference crown. Boxing Coach FRANK CRONIN Although his charges wound up with the record of three wins, three losses, and three ties last winter, Coach Frank Cronin is happy over the 1953-54 outlook. With six of his 1952 mainstays returning, the big problem is to find replacements for Jackie Letzer, superlative performer at 132 pounds, and Cal Quenstedt, heavyweight, who went undefeated in nine bouts and won the Eastern Intercollegiate Championship. Included among the returning Maryland mittmen are Gary Garber, former Army-wide bantamweight champion, Gary Fisher, Bob Theofield, Russ Eddy, Ronnie Rhodes and Bill Mclnnis. Draws were gained against South Carolina (in a return match), LSU and Syracuse in the Sugar Bowl Classic at New Orleans. Terp champs in the Sugar Bowl were Garber, Let- zer, Theofield and Quenstedt. 139 Track Coach „ JIM KEHOE What Maryland's track team lacked in individ- ual stars it filled up with an exceptionally well-balanced squad during the '53 campaign. Showing a scoring potential in every event the Terps captured the Southern Conference Championship, went undefeated in five straight dual matches and won the DCAAU title. Under the tutelage of Coach Jim Kehoe the thin-clads swept their second straight con- ference championship by taking five first places and tying for another. Dave Matthews, victor in the 100 and 220-yard dashes, was the only Maryland double winner. Jim Pent- zer's first in the 440-yard dash and Kenny Thorton's win in the 880-yard run were the other single victories. Mel Schwarz, who tied for first in the pole-vault, and the mile relay team of Phil Stroup, Thornton, Pentzer and Burke Wilson completed the select circle. 140 ^^^- .--.^. Rf7/e Coach „ HARLAND GRISWOLD With two All-Americas setting the pace, the varsity rifle team won the National Inter- collegiate Championship, went undefeated in five straight dual matches and broke the exist- ing collegiate five-man shoulder-to-shoulder record. After finishing second in the Nationals in '51 the riflemen, coached by Colonel Harland Griswold, went on to extend their consecutive winning streak to seventeen. Their team-score of 1,442 out of a possible 1,500 broke the former collegiate high-total of 1,437. Roy Ister on the '51 All-America team led his team with a 288.8 average. Both he and Elwood Barton, who maintained a 286.6 average, were chosen on the '52 All-America squad. The team average for its five shoulder-to- shoulder matches was 1,436.6. 141 ^ Baseball Coach -..H. BURTON SHIPLEY The Maryland baseball team, sprinkled liber- ally with freshmen, turned in one of the most outstanding records in the history of Terra- pin baseball. Coach Burton Shipley completed his 30th year of coaching by leading his charges to a 16-win, five-loss record. In addition, follow- ing a year's absence, the Terp diamondmen tied for the conference Northern Division title and participated in the Southern Conference play-offs. Led by the heavy hitting of Chester Hanu- lak and Dave Zatz, returning to the Maryland diamond after serving in the Army, plus the fine pitching of Connie Hemphill and Ray DeSibio, the Terps got away to a slow start and then proceeded to mow down all opposi- tion in their race for the title. 142 HanuUik Steals Another One 143 Tennis Coach - Doyle Royal The tennis team which loses only one man by P-raduation, shut out its opponents seven times out of its 10-wins and 2-defeats for head Coach Doyle Royal. Royal, who coaches soccer in the fall, featured junior Mel Huyett in the number one spot throughout most of the year. Huyett lost twice in ten matches. Number two position was filled by John Myers, 9-2, whi.e senior Dennis Hevener had a 10-2 record m the thud slot. Hevener also teamed up with Bud Leightheiser to go undefeated m the doubles. .Tack Clifford, Terry Birch, Rollie Willis and Paul Ekel rounded out the squad. The Terps did not participate in the '52 Southern Conference Tournament because ot the nearness of Maryland's final exams to the tournament date. The year before the Liners tied Duke for the championship both with a 11-win and 1-loss record. 144 Golf Coach FRANK CRONIN An impressive seven wins and tw^o defeats in dual competition w^ound up another successful season for Coach Frank Cronin's golf team. Number one man for the linkmen was senior Bill Ruppert, District of Columbia junior match play champion, who posted a 6-2 record in that slot. Great excitement was stirred up over the fine showing of freshman Jim DiPiro. The New York lad was a metropolitan champ- ion from that state, and he copped eight out of nine matches while compiling a 73 stroke average. Other team members are Carl Kronneberger, also with eight wins out of nine matches, Bill McFerran and Bob Steinwedel. Melvin Arnold and Ed Fitzgerald complete the squad mem- bership. Practice sessions and home matches for the Terps are played at the eighteen-hole course of the Prince Georges Country Club not far from the campus. 145 Lacrosse Coaches.. _ JACK FABER and AL HAGEY The loss of two All-Americas, and the gradu- ation of eleven of eighteen lettermen put co- coaches Jack Faber and Al Heagy in quite a spot for the opening of the 1953 lacrosse season. Nevertheless, a squad composed of ten freshmen, eight sophomores and nine junior- seniors just missed winning the national inter- collegiate championship. By May 9, the Liners had a seven-win, two-loss record and were ranked second in the nation. Top berth was held by undefeated Army, and the Terps met the West Pointers in their next game. Trailing three goals at the half- time, Maryland pulled up to a five-five tie before succumbing 10-8. Attackman Rennie Smith was sensational on offensive. He led the team scoring with 14 goals and 17 assists. Tricky Little Devil! ^ Women's Intramurais Women's Director...BOnOTIiY DEACH Another group striving for recognition in the activities field is the Women's Recreation Association. Directed by Dr. Dorothy Deach, the aggregation offers coeds a long list of ac- tivities featuring bowling, swimming, badmin- ton, basketball, tennis, archery and volleyball. Run by the students themselves the WRA is open to any woman student on campus and all coeds are considered members when they enroll at Maryland. Setting up tournaments between the dorms and the sororities, giving trophies and awards to the victors; and assist- ing in the officiating are the main functions of the club. Yearly, the organization sponsors a "Sports Day" which brings intramural groups and members of the District-Maryland Federation of College Women to the University to com- pete with one another. 148 Women's Pool Open now for two full years the women's swimming pool is located in the annex of the Women's Field House. Recreational swim- ming is carried on Monday through Friday between 4 p. m. and 5:15 p. m. and from 7 p. m. until 9 p. m. Last year, the WRA presented a water festival in which students participated. The affair, which is to become an annual event, is called the "Aquamarine Show." Measuring 75 feet by 35 feet the pool is the newest in design and is ideal for competi- tive as well as recreational swimming. Men's Intramurals Center of attraction for the University's male enrollment is the Armory. In this building and on the two huge fields adjacent to it, more than 4,500 men participate in an intra- mural program composed of 26 separate forms of competition. Under the direction of Jim Kehoe, leagues are formed and then divided into the open and fraternity divisions. The fraternities vie for the honor of winning the gold activities cup, which is presented annually to the Greek organization which has amassed the most points during the year. Individual first and second place winners receive gold and silver medals for their respective efforts. 149 Freshmen Sports From the "tiniest seeds comes the tallest corn" and so it is with the talent supplied from the freshman sports to the varsity, in the professional ranks it's the minor league team that supplies the new material and in college it's the Frosh squad that supplies it. Although a limited schedule is planned for the freshmen, the main purpose is to look over and develop material for the years ahead. Every student is urged to try out for one ot these squads. Ample notice of the first prac- tice is given several weeks before the opening date. Remember, there is a place for you in Maryland athletics if you want it. Frosh Basketball Coached by Dick Koffenberger, former guard at Maryland in 1951-52, the freshmen basket- ball team played a total of twelve games, winning five while dropping seven. Plenty of height was the teams biggest asset and it got considerable attention from varsity Coach Millikan. Team high scorer, Bob Kessler, stands 6 feet 5 inches while center Ralph Hicks is 6 feet 6 inches. Other team starters include Marv Long, 6 feet 3 inches, Bob Hall, 6 feet 1 inch and John Sandbower, 6 feet 4 inches. 150 Frosh Baseball AVith a limited squad to work with, Coach Shipley scheduled only one game for the Frosh, and they dropped that one to the Naval Academy Plebes, 8-6. In the short time they performed, several players showed varsity possibilities. Catcher Dick Nuth and first-baseman Jim Connolly both hit home-runs, and third-baseman Tom Mason collected two of the ten Maryland hits. Although giving up ten hits in the nine innings he worked, pitcher Bill Weiss also showed varsity potential. 151 Full O' Pep a I 152 songs and cheers Maryland prides itself on its school spirit which is kept at a high ebb by such groups as the Student Activities Committee and the cheerleaders. SAC sponsors pep rallies, the football card section and "meet the team" jaunts; while the cheerleaders practice long and hard to see that Maryland cheering is full of vim and vigor. The work of these groups, however, cannot be successful if it is not met with student interest. One of the best ways to support school spirit is to know the school songs and cheers; it is difficult to yell loudly and strongly for your team without knowing the cheers. Not all of these conveyors of school spirit are linked with the past. Eager to keep cheering fresh, SAC and the cheerleaders sponsored a cheer contest last spring and as a result the Maryland Swing and Boom Bam will be in- troduced this Fall. And so, to become a genuine Maryland rooter, it is important to learn both the old and new Maryland songs and cheers. 153 Songs Alma Mater Words and music by Robert Kinney, '40 (see back end sheet) Victory Song (see page 176) Terrapin Drinking Song Music by Wilmer Orpwood, Jr., '43 Words by A.

At the University of Maryland the opportunity to become a well-balanced citizen and a re- sponsible Air Force officer is afforded each student in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps. In unpredictable times like these, with the ghastly game being played abroad, the liberty we have accepted so casually is a hazard. Too long has our security creaked and groaned from our national habit of indifference to mili- tary precautions. If a student wants to become an Air Force officer — if he desires to acquire information, to understand the problems of today and to grow in character — then he belongs in Mary- la7id's cadet corps Remember, that "without discipline our Air Force is a mob ; without morale it is a hollow shell. Possessing both, it is invincible!" JOS. R. AMBROSE Dean of Military Science ^ Some of Maryland's AFROTG AFROTC Events The two most important events on the AF- ROTC calendar are held in the spring. The first of these is the Military Ball, which pro- vides a welcome break in the drill program and gives every cadet the chance to show off his best girl. New members of the honorary mili- tary societies are also tapped at the Ball. The AFROTC year actually culminates in Military Day, which features a review by the Governor of the State of Maryland, competi- tive drill, exhibits and demonstrations, and presentations of awards to outstanding cadets. These events stimulate interest in the Air Force program and augment the scholastic curriculum. Last year the ROTC program was trans- ferred from the Continental Air Command to the Air University, which brings with it plans for slightly different organization of the academic program. The High Command Operations of the AFROTC unit are super- vised by half a hundred regular Air Force personnel, who must keep detailed records on each cadet in the largest AFROTC unit in the country as well as provide classroom and drill instruction. 158 The Commanding Officer in the organization is the Professor of Air Science and Tactics, who coordinates the activities of the unit. This position is held by Colonel Joseph R. Ambrose, who is in his second year as CO and recently returned from a tour of duty in the Far East. Angel's Flight The Angel's Flight is composed of coeds who are chosen by the various squadrons as spon- sors for their units. The purpose of these sponsors is to improve the "esprit de corps" of the air division as well as to act as hostesses to families and visitors on various occasions. Any girl is eligible to become a member of the Angel's Flight, since she is selected by the cadets themselves. The new members are pre- sented annually at the Military Day cere- monies. The Angel's Flight is organized in conjunc- tion with the Arnold Air Society and is the local branch of a nation-wide organization which is represented at all co-educational col- leges and universities which have AFROTC units. This year's Air Division sponsor is Eliza- beth Cave, with Elizabeth McDaniel, Mary Broumas, and Jeanine Eberts as the three wing sponsors. There are twenty-six other individual unit sponsors. 159 Scabbard and Blade President Richard Bland Vice-President Michael Troiano Secretary „ Don Tindal Treasurer Richard Jansson Faculty Advisor Lt.

Here are some facts you should know about them. The Diamondback newspaper is pub- lished Tuesdays and Fridays. The Old Line magazine is issued every six weeks or so, and the Terrapin yearbook is delivered annually in May. The "M" Book, which you are now reading, is printed for all incoming students. These publications are the student's oppor- tunity to express themselves in fact and fancy, in story and photograph, in layout and makeup and in business and editorial. All publications are eagerly sought and read by the students. Look through the brief descriptions on the following pages and decide which one you want to work on. All students, including those with business and editorial abilities, are invited and requested to help with any of these publications. A campus career in student pub- lications is rewarding in many ways. There is always a need for new and fresh talent in the publications offices. Freshmen should begin work on publications during their first year so they will be ready for major positions in later vears. JIM HANSEN, President, Pi Delta Epsilon A publication staff at work W Publications Board As a faculty-student body, the Publications Board is responsible for the selection of edi- tors, managing editors and business managers of all Student Government Association sup- ported publications. All appointments are made on the basis of a written application, experience, and the applicant's ability to do the job in the most professional manner. The Publications Board this year will be headed by Prof. Alfred A. Crowell, head of the Journalism Department. Other members of the faculty include Dean James Reid, Stu- dent Life Committee chairman; Prof. Donald Krimel, Journalism department; and a faculty advisor to publications to be named. Student representatives on the board in- clude: Craig Fisher, SGA president; Jim Han- sen, Pi Delta Epsilon president; and Elin Lake, William Holland, and Ann Bennett, editors of the Diamondback, Terrapin, and the Old Line and M-Book respectively. Miss Ben- nett is editor of the last two mentioned pub- lications. 164 University Publications The Maryland Magazine Published six times yearly by the Maryland alumni, this magazine is of special interest to former students at the University. The maga- zine carries a full range of articles and pic- tures about the campus and the alumni. The magazine can be purchased at the Stu- dent Supply Store or may be subscribed to by writing General Alumni Secretary David Brigham, Rossborough Inn, Campus. University Catalogs There is a separate catalog published for each college at the College Park campus, and for each of the professional schools in Balti- more. Each catalog contains the course offer- ings; requirements for degrees, and the re- quired curricula of each college. A general catalog is published each year describing entrance requirements of the Uni- versity, and containing information regarding costs, fees, facilities, and other information. The Academic and General Regulations bul- letin includes attendance and residence re- quirements for degrees, traffic regulations, and arrangements for social functions. Catalogs or bulletins may be picked up at the Publications Office, located in Room 28 of Symons Hall. 165 The Diamondback Editor-in-Chief Elin Lake Managing Editors — Adele Chidakel, Neal Durgin Makeup Editor Terry Emsweller Copy Editors — Don Betz, Barbara Dodd Executive News Editor — Richard Manning Feature Editors — Sabra Baker, Paul Linder Social Page Editors — Jean Spencer, Shirley Steele Sports Editors — Frank Weedon, Harvey Casbar- ian, Ray Ashley, Pete Lamphier.

It is on this day the first copy of the annual is presented to the May Day Queen. The 1952 edition was recently awarded the Pi Delta Epsilon award for excellence in pho- tography. Other Student Publications Several clubs, academic departments, fraterni- ties and sororities publish bulletins, annuals, newspapers, magazines and newsletters dur- ing the college year. Most of these organs are staffed by students, offering a worthwhile extra-curricula activity for those interested m this work. One of these publications is The Fraternity Way, a pictorial handbook published by the Interfraternity Council each year. The pur- pose of this magazine is to acquaint freshmen with the college fraternity system on the Maryland campus. 170 171 The Student Directory Published early in the fall semester, the Stu- dent Directory lists the names of the faculty, staff members, and students at the University by name, local address, and home address. The Directory also contains the names and presidents of clubs, honoraries, sororities, fra- ternities, and organizations. A small fee is charged for each copy, and it may be pur- chased in the Student Supply Store. Pi Delta Epsilon Awards Pi Delta Epsilon gives two awards each year: one to the outstanding freshman in publica- tions, and the other to the senior who has contributed most to student publications in his four years at the University. The first award, named the E. A.
