Class of 1958 

Unioersity of f^aryland 
College Park, Maryland 



The 1954 M-Book is dedicated 
to Dr. Wilson H. Elkins, income- 
ing President of the University 
of Maryland. 

Letter from the President 

Education, at best, is a cooperative enterprise. 
The administration, faculty, and staff of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland are employed for the sole pur- 
pose of serving the students and the citizens of 
Maryland. The extent of our success depends, in a 
large measure, on your desire to be educated. 

As a newcomer to Maryland, I am privileged to 
begin my freshman year along with the new stu- 
dents of 1954, and to aid in the maintenance of 
favorable conditions for all of the students, on or 
off campus. Our heritage is something of which 
we can be proud, and it is our responsibility to en- 
rich everything that has been developed and to 
share in the creation of additional benefits. 

Your opportunities at the University of Mary- 
land are almost unlimited. If you will take advant- 
age of the educational program, in and out of the 
classroom, you will reap rewards which are deserved 
only by those who plan and work. 

Good luck! But give luck a chance by doing 
your best.

Looking across the mall to Anne Arundel Hall 


The face of the campus changes. New buildings 
are constructed, old ones torn down. The students, 
professors, and curriculum change but the only un- 
changing elements in the transient school scene 
are the traditions. Maryland has its well-loved tradi- 
tions—events, parties, and ceremonies. 

The school season swings into action with fratern- 
ity and sorority rushing. The greek organizations 
look over prospective members and vice versa, by 
means of a round of almost continuous parties, 
open houses, teas, and smokers. "Rush" is the per- 
fect name for it, ask any freshman! This colorful 
introduction into college life is interspersed by 
Registration and various Orientation activities, such 
as the annual Terrace Dance, planned to facilitate 
the adjustment of the freshmen to the University. 

Next big annual event on the calendar is the 
football season. Led by the cheerleaders, there are 
pep and noise rallies before the games, and school 
spirit is at its peak. Homecoming is the high point 
of the football season with the old grads re-appear- 
ing, dorms, sorority and fraternity houses gay with 
decorations, the crowning of the Homecoming 
Queen and the big Homecoming dance. 

Annual events which follow are the three Ross- 
borough dances. University Theatre productions, 


the KA Minstrel show and the Aqualiner's water 

Christmas is impicssi\cly celebrated at Maryland. 
There is a pageant, followed by the lighting of a 
huge Christmas tree in front of the Administration 
building. The chapel bells add Christmas carols 
to their hourly rendition of "Maryland, My Mary- 
land," and the dorms go caroling all over the cam- 
pus. Christmas formals are given by the fraternities 
and sororities, and on the last day before vacation 
there are even tablecloths on the dining hall tables! 

Spring at Maryland is ushered in by such activ- 
ities as the Interfraternity Sing, Spring Week, and 
May Day, which is one of Maryland's oldest tradi- 
tions. On May Day, there is dancing around a 
May Pole on the Mall, followed by the coronation 
of the May Queen, a senior elected by the junior 
women. Mortar Board taps its new members at 
this time. 

Also on the scene each spring are the campus 
elections with a grand confusion of electioneering, 
publicity and parades. 

The spring lacrosse game wath Maryland's arch 
rival, Navy, is one of the year's most hotly contest- 
ed athletic contests. Proms, spring formals, and the 
annual alumni-varsity football game complete the 
Maryland spring scene. 

Just before graduation, the annual Honors and 
Awards Assembly gives recognition for excellence 
in scholarship, sports, ROTC, and other phases of 
University life. 

Maryland has also its traditions not connected 
with special events. There is Testudo, the Univer- 
sity's mascot, who formerly rested on a pedestal in 
front of the Coliseum. Early in the football sea- 
son, he would mysteriously disappear, reappearing 
just as mysteriously just before a big game. Now 
the bronze wanderer is permanently anchored at 
the entrance to Byrd Stadium. 

Then at last-graduation. After four years, the 
student leaves the University with memories of 
traditions which have enriched his life at Mary- 

University 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- 

The escutcheon bears the Calvert and Crosslands 
arms quartered. The first and fourth quarters are 
the Calvert Arms. The second and third quarters 


are from the Crossland, Baltimore's maternal arms. 
An earl's coronet and full-faced helmet are sur- 
mounted on the quarterings. These indicate Lord 
Baltimore's rank in America. The Calvert crest 
rests on the helmet. 

The escutcheon is supported on one side by the 
figure of a farmer, and on the other by that of a 
fisherman-symbols of each of Lord Baltimore's 
estates, Maryland and Avalon. Below the figures is 
the scroll bearing the Calvert motto: 'Tatti Maschii 
Parole Famine," which means "deeds are Males; 
words, females." On a border encircling the seal 
is the legend: "University of Maryland . . . 1807 
1856 . . . 1920. 


The University of Maryland began in 1807 when 
the College of Medicine was founded in Baltimore. 
Since then, school after school has been added until 
now Maryland is one of the most rapidly growing 
universities in the country, reaching students both 
here and overseas. 

Soon after the Medical School was founded, 
several other professional colleges were established— 
the School of Law in 1823, the School of Dentistry 
in 1882, the School of Nursing in 1889, and in 
1904, the Maryland College of Pharmacy. Mean- 
while the Maryland Agricultural College at College 
Park had opened its doors in 1856 as the first agri- 
cultural college in the United States. 

It was not until the 1862 Congressional Land 
Grant Act that this school became, in part, a state 
institution. Under this law, the school was one of 
the first to receive federal aid to education. 

Finally, the professional schools of the University 
of Baltimore and the Maryland State College in 
College Park merged in 1920 into what is now 
the University of Maryland. Since that time the 
school has expanded through its Overseas Extension 
Program, into Africa, Germany, Iceland and re- 
mote spots all over the world. 



It is botli a privilege and a pleasure to extend to 
all new and returning students through the pages 
of the M BOOK a hearty and cordial welcome to 
our University. Those of you who are fortunate 
enough to have the privilege of a college education 
should make the most of it. We hope that your 
years at Maryland will be busy, happy, fruitful 
ones. You will make lasting friendships at Mary- 

The door of my office, as well as those of my 
assistants, is always open to you. So stop ])y and 
get acquainted.

student Life Committee 

The Facultv Committee on Student Life serves as 
the connecting Hnk between the student body and 
the Administration and serves to advise the Stu- 
dent Government Association. 

Its main function is that of approving all activ- 
ities sponsored bv the various student organizations 
on campus. 

Members of Student Life Committee are: 
Dean James H. Reid, Chairman 
Dean Geary Eppley, Dean of Men 
Mr. Robert James

• SGA 

The Student Government Association, the organi- 
zation for student self-government, is made up of 
three divisions, the Executive Council, the Men's 
League and the Associated Women Students. 

The Executive Council is the policy-making 
group, whose duties include appropriating funds 
from the student activity fee for dances, the Uni- 
versity Theatre, student publications and other 
student activities carried on by its various com- 
mittees. Executive Council meetings are held every 
two weeks and are open to all students. 

The Men's League and the Associated Women 
Student's organizations are responsible for the en- 
forcement of campus regulations. 


Elections for SGA and class officers are held an- 
nually in the spring. Primaries are held for offices 
for which three or more students are competing. 
A 2.0 overall average is the only requirement to 
become a candidate. 

Freshman class elections are held in October and 
are open to all freshmen who secure petitions 


from the SGA office and have the required number 
of freshman signatures prior the deadline. 


The Student Government Association operates 
through committees, set up by the Executive Coun- 
cil and open to all students. Chairmanships are 
open to those who submit applications stating their 
qualifications and experience. Sub-committee chair- 
manships and committee members are chosen by 
the chairman on the basis of experience. 

SGA committees under the constitution are Ways 
and Means, Elections, Organizations and Procedure 
and special committees, like Student Welfare, Social 
Affairs, Campus Improvement, Student Activities, 
Constitution, Campus Chest, Freshman Orienta- 
tion, Homecoming, Dad's Day, Student Union, Cul- 
tural Program, Public Relations, Traffic Appeals, 
Job Placement and Who's Who. 

The President of the Executive Council has al- 
ready named the chairmen for the following com- 
mittees: Who's Who, Student Activities, Freshmen 
Orientation, Homecoming, Dad's Day, Student 
Union and Traffic Appeals. These chairmen will 
hold office throughout year. Some committees, 
like the Ways and Means, Who's Who, and the 


Elections committees require special knowledge of 
campus functions, organizations and personalities 
and are not usually open to freshmen, but the re- 
maining groups welcome new members. 

You, as a new student, may be appointed to any 
of these committees by submitting an application 
to the SGA office during the first two weeks of 
school. State your qualifications and experience, 
campus or home address, and telephone number, 
and address the application to the chairman of the 
committee of your choice. 

For class prom chairmanships watch the Dia- 
mondback for notices of when to apply. Home- 
coming and Dad's Day are two big fall projects 
and require a lot of planning and work. AppHca- 
tions for both of these committees will be accepted 
in the fall. 

The Campus Chest is an organization under 
SGA which conducts a consolidated drive for funds 
on campus. The Campus Chest Week, which in- 
cludes a carnival and a contest for the "Ugliest 
Man on the Campus," raises the funds for many 
welfare groups. 

The Student Union committee is new, and was 
set up to see that the new Student Union Building 
is run smoothly. The committee also handles the 
fund-raising Friday night movies. 


The SGA 
President . 



It is both a pleasure and a privilege for me to 
welcome you, as new students, to the University 
of Maryland and to the activities of the Student 
Government Association. 

These activities, with a few exceptions, are spon- 
sored and financed entirely by the SGA. Therefore, 
the Executive Council solicits your cooperation, so 
that the entire student body may receive even 
greater benefits from its student government. 

On behalf of the Executive Council and the stu- 
dent body, I extend to you our heartiest greetings 
with a reminder that a student supported SGA 
will better serve you.

The Men's League is the representative body of 
all the male students on campus. Its functions and 
duties are coordinated to assist the men students. 

Functionally, the Men's League consists of the 
Executive Council and the Dormitory Council. The 
Executive Council is made up of the elected officers 
who are chosen in the campus-wide elections in 
the spring. These are the president, vice-president, 
and class representatives. A temporary secretary 
and treasurer have been appointed this year until 
they can be elected this fall during freshman-class 
elections. Also on the Council are representatives 
from various organizations on campus— Independent 
Student's Association, Interfraternity Council, Ag 
Council, Men's Glee Club, Arnold Air Society, Per- 
shing Rifles, and Daydodgers Club. 

The Dormitory Council is made up of the elect- 
ed presidents of the individual dormitories and acts 
as the supervisory and disciplinary branch of Men's 
League for misdemeanors committed by men stu-

The Panhellenic Association welcomes you to the 
University of Maryland and extends to you an in- 
vitation to join the University's extra-curricular, 
social program by participating in sorority rushing. 
We believe that sorority life offers many opportun- 
ities. Besides introducing you to many phases of 
campus life a sorority enables you to broaden your 
social responsibility, group relations, scholarship, 
reliability, and loyalty. 

When you rush, visit each sorority and judge 
each group according to your standards of friends. 
Although choosing the sorority best for you is not 
easy, ample opportunities to visit groups have been 


The Panhellenic 
Association wishes 
you success in both 
college and sorority 
life. We hope each 
of you will take ad- 
vantage of the active 
college program that 
the University of 
Maryland offers.

President Joy Covert 

Vice-President Pat Hoover 

Secretary Louise Huebech 

Treasurer Paula Salganik 

The Pan-Hellenic Council coordinates and 
governs campus sorority activities such as rushing, 
pledging and initiation of members. Last year their 
activities included sponsoring the annual fall Pledge 
Dance, adopting a foster child, and cooperating 
with SGA in its efforts to carry out student rules 
and plans. Each sorority is represented on the 
Council by one voting member. Through the 
Council, the sororities are able to solve mutual 
social and scholastic problems and work for closer 
relationships among sorority women. 

Standard Pan-Hellenic Rules 

Any woman eligil)lc for matriculation at the Uni- 
versity and unafliliatcd witli any National Pan- 
hellenic Fraternity is cHgible for rushing. 

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 


Important Rush Rules 

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

Formal rushing is the period beginning on Sep- 
tember 10, 1954, with open house teas, and con- 
tinuing until pledging on September 18, 1954. 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 

No women, except sorority actives, pledges and 
rushes may be present for rush functions. Rushees 
will be allowed to visit sorority houses for speci- 
fied functions only.

A fraternity's purposes are manifold. It assists 
the freshman in orienting himself to a new life 
on campus, encourages scholarship, and furnishes 
living quarters. It helps to crystallize habits, 
broaden outside interests, and increase social poise. 
It provides training and prepares the college gradu- 
ate for his future as an American citizen. 

The fraternities at Maryland are proud of their 
organizations and sincerely hope to show you 
through their houses and enjoy your company dur- 
ing rushing. See you then.

Interfraternity Council 

President John Rice

The Interfraternity Council, composed of repre- 
sentatives of all the fraternities on campus, is the 
"UN of fraternity life." The Council, which strives 
to strengthen and maintain the interfraternity sys- 
tem on campus, promotes friendly and coopera- 
tive relations between fraternities. 

Council activities begin with supervision of fra- 
ternity rushing in order that each rushee has an 
opportunity to visit every chapter. Fraternity Way, 
which explains fraternity life, is published by the 
council for the use of all rushees. 

"Help Week" which replaces "Hell Week" for 
fraternity initiates is put into effect by the Inter- 
fraternity Pledge Council with the direction of the 

Near the end of the first semester the Council 
sponsors the Interfraternity Ball which offers Greek 
men and their dates an opportunity to mingle 
socially in a large body instead of individual 
groups. At the ball the Council presents activity 
cups to the fraternities which have participated 
outstandingly in the IFC sponsored intramural 


Fraternity Criteria 

The National Interfraternity Conference, found- 
ed in 1908, serves to bring about closer harmony 
among the 64 national fraternities in the group. 
Annually, national undergraduate councils and col- 
lege administrators attend a conference, the re- 
sults of which are reported in the NIC yearbook. 

A fraternity criteria, which serves to advance 
fraternity-education institution cooperation, was 
submitted by NIC executives in 1934 and approved 
by the American Association of Deans and Ad- 
visors of Men. It reads as follows: 

1. That the objectives and activities of the fratern- 
ity 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 
institution, and that ... a chapter of a fra- 
ternity involves 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 atmosphere 
which will stimulate substantial intellectual pro- 
gress and superior intellectual achievement.

Ihe Maryland chapter of the Independent Stu- 
dent's Association has been dusting off the "Wel- 
come" mat all summer, just for this occasion. 

The Independent Student's Association is a low- 
cost social organization designed for the student 
who cannot afford the expenses of a fraternity or 
sorority or doesn't want to shoulder the time-con- 
suming obligations of Greek life. It offers dances, 
picnics, parties and full participation in intra- 
mural sports, as well as representation in the stu- 
dent goxernment and other campus-wide activities. 

We have mention- 
ed only a few of the 
many activities plan- 
ned for this year, 
but the ISA is still 
looking for new 
ideas. You can help 
us better serve the 
University and its 
students by joining 
the ISA and support- 
ing it. 
Al Register, 



President Alton Register 

Vice-President Ralph Crosby 

Secretary Amanda Wall 

Treasurer Chuck Keffer 

Faculty Advisor John Daiker 

ISA is the campus organization for all independ- 
ent students, and was established to provide a social 
organization for those students who were not affili- 
ated with other social fraternities. To achieve 
this, the group holds an Autumn Barn Dance each 
fall an annual Xmas party, and is now making 
plans for a banquet and formal to be held some- 
time next spring. Parties, and other social func- 
tions are held throughout the year. 

In addition to their activities, the independents 
are now seeking permission from the Student Life 
Committee to establish the Silver Key, a compan- 
ion honorary to the fraternities' Gate and Key and 
the sororities' Diamond, to honor those independ- 
ent students most active in campus activities. ISA 
hopes to make the first awards next spring. 

In the fall, the club will have its own office in 
the newly-constructed Student Union Building, in 
which they will hold their 7 o'clock Monday night 
meetings. All independents are invited to attend.

p.m. in the Music Building. 

Beside their regular campus concerts during the 
Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons the chorus is 
making plans for a spring program of music with 
the Men's Glee Club, concerts for off-campus 
groups, and a repeat performance of last year's 
rV appearance. 

The highlight of the clubs activities is the trip to 
Annapolis to sing at the Naval Academy. In ad- 
dition to the fun and enjoyment that the group 
offers to its members. Women's Chorus is now a 
one-credit course and may be taken for credit. In- 
terested students may sign up in the Armory dur- 
ing registration. 



Several years ago, many students became aware 
of the growing nimiber of plays, concerts, art ex- 
hibits and musicals which were constantly being 
produced in Washington, and a desire arose to 
make these activities more available to students. 

As a result, several campus organizations com- 
bined their efforts to bring about this "campus 
culture program". One of the first results of their 
work was the appearance, in 1949, of the Na- 
tional Symphony Orchestra, for a series of con- 
certs in the Colesium. The enthusiastic student 
response has brought the orchestra back each year, 
bringing some of the world's finest music and per- 
formers to the campus. Under the direction of Dr. 
Howard Mitchell, the group performed many times 
for large audiences, all at reduced student prices. 
In addition to bringing the performers to cam- 
pus, plans are underway for other activities which 
will help students take advantage of the programs 
and exhibits in the surrounding area. Special re- 
duced prices for many of the better plays and 
movies, and information concerning current activ- 
ities in Washington will be more available to the 
students, and sight-seeing tours of Washington and 
other special trips are also under consideration.

Dear Jane and Joe Journalist, 

Your arrival on the University of Maryland cam- 
pus was news. It was announced to the public by 
the sounds of heavily laden, trunk filled cars, the 
buzz of "ohs and ah's", the footsteps of 3,000 
additional students, but mainly it was acknowl- 
edged bv the publications. The Diamondback wrote 
of vour entrance, the M Book was a guide for you 
and the Old Line welcomed you. 

Why not become a part of this gigantic organiza- 
tion which is created to fill the students needs. To 
do so, head toward the Publications Building where 
the hum of typewriters may be heard far into the 
night. Here you will find a place to practice all 
the mechanics of good writing which you have 
learned in English and Journalism classes. You will 
find companionship in sharing the struggles of 
other voung reporters whose earnest desire is to re- 
port all the facts, portray campus life as it exists 
and keep pace with the throbbing under-current of 
news which is constantly breaking around campus. 

You'll have fun while learning. I guarantee it.

AFROTC Activities 

Ihc ROTC program begins early in the fall semes- 
ter with the issuance of uniforms and regularly 
scheduled drill periods. Drill is suspended during 
the winter months and begun again in April. Final 
drill sessions take place on Military Day— in the 
middle of May. 

Drill proficiency and other outstanding military 
achievements are exhibited and rewarded on Mili- 
tary Day. This day culminates the achievements 
of the ROTC program for the year. 

In addition, the Air Force Ball gives a welcome 
relief to the drill program and gives each cadet 
a chance to take his best girl to a formal military 
social function. The corps of cadets also partici- 
pates in a mass march-on at one of the games near 
the end of the football season. 

The High Command 

Operations of the AFROTC unit are supervised 
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. 

The Commanding Officer in the organization is 
the Professor of Air Science and Tactics, who coor- 
dinates the activities of the unit. This position is 
held by Colonel Joseph R. Ambrose, who is in his 
second vear as CO.

Athletics, both intercollegiate and intramural, play 
an important part in the college career of every 
student of the University. There is an excellent 
intramural program the year around for the stu- 
dents who do not make the varsity teams. 

The Athletic Council sponsors an intercollegiate 
program in all sports at the University. Every 
student is invited and urged to come out for these 

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 important to 
the caliber of your ath- 
letic teams and you can 
furnish the morale. 


Director of Athletics 


Year of Champions . . . 

The football team, for the first time in its history, 
was named the NATION'S NUMBER ONE TEAM, 
while the rifle team became the first team since 
1935 to be named the Nation's best in that sport 
two consecutive years. 

The boxing team nearly brought the University 
its third National championship when it missed 
winning the team title by two points. However, 
Gary Garber and Vincent Palumbo took individual 
National boxing titles. 

The All-American City tournament went to the 
I errapin basketball team, with All-America Gene 
Shue the pacesetter. 

Atlantic Coast Conference titles went to the 
wrestling, soccer, and indoor and outdoor track 

All-America's were galore at Maryland. Besides 
Shue in basketball, Bernie Faloney, Chet Hanulak 
and Stan Jones were selected in football, with 
Jones named the "Lineman of the Year." George 
Corrigan was a first team and Rennie Smith a sec- 
ond team choice in lacrosse. Jim Wells, Bud Bar- 
ton and Bob Martorana were rifle All-Americas, 
the first time three men from one team have ever 
been selected. 

James Tatum was named 'Football Coach of the 
^ear," but to Terrapin fans, he is "Athletic Direc- 
tor of the Year. ■ 



Head Coach James M. Tatum 

"Maryland, we're all behind you," goes the Mary- 
land Victory Song and all the football teams in the 
country were behind Maryland last year as the 
Terrapins were unanimously chosen the NUMBER 

"Coach of the Year" Jim Tatum's Split-T offense 
was served to 10 opponents in 1953 and all ten 
Avent down to defeat— six by shutouts. 

Termed what Tatum called his best backfield 
ever, the quartet of Bernie Faloney at quarterback, 
Chet Hanulak and Dick Nolan at the halfbacks and 
Ralph Felton at fullback enabled Maryland never 
to be behind or tied all season. 

Hanulak from Hackensack, led the Nation's run- 
ners with a 9.8 yards per carry, while Faloney was 
named on most All-Americas. 

Opening up the holes in the line and doing a 
stellar job on defense was "Lineman of the Year" 
Stan Jones. Jones headed a line that held the op- 
position to 31 points all season. 

As has happened the past four years, the Number 
One team went down to defeat in a bowl game. 
This time Oklahoma pulled the coup de grace, 
7-0, in the Orange Bowl. 



Coach Doyle P. Royal 

Maryland's soccer team got the 1953-54 athletic sea- 
son off to a winning start by taking the first of 
four of Maryland's Atlantic Coast Conference 

Five All-Conference players paced the Terrapins 
to a sweep of three conference games and eight of 
ten for the year. Charles Reynolds, Jose Hagedorn, 
Otto Winckleman, Tom Baden and Hector Salinas 
were named to the All-ACC team. 

The outstanding game of the season was the 6-5 
overtime win over Navy. It was the first time Mary- 
land had beaten Navy in 10 years. Other wins were 
over Duke, North Carolina State, Loyola, Connecti- 
cut, North Carolina, Washington and Lee and 
Western Maryland. 



Three All- Americas led the Maryland rifle team to 
its second consecutive National Intercollegiate Rifle 
team title. It was the first time since 1934-35 that 
any team has repeated as National champions. 

James Wells, and Bob Martorana were named All- 
America for the first time, while Bud Barton was 
a holdover from last year's National Rifle Associa- 
tion All-America team. Dick Gorey and Linn Sav- 
age completed the quintet that fired a score of 
1439 out of a possible 1500 to pace the Terrapins 
over some 90 schools competing in 14 sectional 
meets for the national title. 

During the regular season the marksmen downed 
five of six opponents, losing only to Army. That 
loss was avenged later in an eight team meet, as 
did the AFRO IC team avenge the football loss in 
the Orange Bowl by downing the University of 
Oklahoma AFROTC team. 


Coach William Krouse 

Coach William E. "Sully" Krouse's wrestlers started 
in the new Atlantic Coast Conference right where 
they left off in the old Southern Conference, by 
taking their third consecutive conference champion- 

Instrumental in the drive to the conference titles 
were the indomnitable Fischer Brothers— Bob and 
Ernie. The graduating seniors lost only one match 
each in their four years of college wrestling. 

Ernie, who went to the finals of the NCAA Na- 
tional championships in the 177 pound class last 
year, won 29 matches, while Bob had 31 wins in 
the 167 pound class. Both were Southern Confer- 
ence champs in 1952 and 1953 and undefeated in 



^^'^^'^ Frank Cronin 

While boxing is on the dechne at most colleges, 
Maryland's ring team moved to the front this past 
season by winning the Eastern Intercollegiates and 
finishing only two points behind Wisconsin for the 
National title. 

While the team couldn't win the National title, 
sophomores Gary Garber and Vincent Palumbo 
slugged their way to individual National titles in 
the 119 and 132 pound classes respectively. 

In winning the Eastern Intercollegiates, for the 
first time since 1942, Maryland ended a five year 
reign by Syracuse. Heavyweight Leo Coyne and 
Garber won Eastern titles. 

In dual team matches the Terps, who will go to 
the Sugar Bowl this year, won three and lost three.

and Track 

^'"('(^1' Jim Kehoe 

Track has no definite season at Maryland, it lasts 
the whole year. 

In the fall, Maryland's cross-country team drop- 
ped its first two starts, but came back strong to win 
the next three and a second place finish in the 
Atlantic Coast Conference. 

While lacking an outstanding star, Kehoe's teams 
have adequate men and depth in almost every 
event, getting most of their points in seconds and 

Maryland dominated the ACC track seasons, by 
capturing both the Indoor and Outdoor champion- 
ships. The Terps took six firsts in the Indoor 
games, including a record breaking pole vault of 
13' 34" by Mel Schwarz. 



Coach Bud Millikan 

Basketball Avas at its best last year at Maryland 
and promises to be even better this year. 

Gene Shue, first draft choice of the pro Philadel- 
phia Warriors, paced the Terrapins to 23 wins in 
30 games, for the best Maryland basketball record 
in history. 

With Shue voted the outstanding player of the 
tournament, Maryland walked off with the first 
All-Anierican City title at Owensboro, Kentucky. 
Coach Bud Millikan's defensive-minded Terrapins 
will defend that title this year. 

The Terps hope to improve on their second place 
standing in the Atlantic Coast Conference and lick 
the semi-final jinx that has eliminated them in the 
Conference tournament for four years. 



C^^^'f' Frank Cronin 

Coach Frank Cronins golf team opened and closed 
the season with losses, but in-between the team 
was hot, fashioning a six-game win streak. 

For the year, the golfing Terrapins ended up on 
the plus side of the scorecard with eight wins 
against six losses. The Terrapins dropped their 
first two starts, but came back with two 9-0 wins 
before going on a three match losing streak. Then 
came the six match win streak before dropping the 
season's finals. 

Sophomore Jim DiPiro had the best record with 
nine wins in the fourteen matches, followed by 
Carl Kroneberger with eight wins playing in the 
number one position. DiPiro finished one stroke 
behind Wake Forest's National Collegiate champion 
Arnold Palmer's 72 in the Atlantic Coast Confer- 
ence tournament. 

Kroneberger was medalist in two matches, as was 
DiPiro. Only other medalist was Bill McFerren. 
Home matches are played at the Prince Georges' 
Country Club off campus, but a nine-hole course 
is to be constructed in the near future adjacent to 
Byrd Stadium.

Coach H. Burton Shipley 

Maryland's baseball team was riding high on top 
of the Atlantic Coast Conference with an eight 
game winning streak and headed for its best sea- 
son ever, until it dropped five of its last six games. 
That streak gave Clemson (8-4) the ACC title, with 
Maryland (6-4) second. Maryland could have tied 
for the lead, but conceded the title to Clemson as 
two rained-out games were cancelled. 

The overall season's record in Coach Burton Ship- 
ley's 31st year was 15 wins, nine losses and a tie. 

Seven players batted over .300 with Bill Walker's 
.365 the team's best and third best in the ACC. 
Hemphill won seven of ten games, while Russ Duf- 
fey dropped only one of seven decisions, for an 
earned run average of 1.35. 



Coach Doyle Royal 

It was either feast or famine for the Terrapin 
tennis team last year. In winning ten of fifteen 
matches, the Terrapins were involved in six 9-0 
matches and four 8-1 matches. 

Of the ten one-sided affairs the Terps came out 
best seven times, including a three match streak 
when they shutout Maine, Western Maryland and 
West Virginia. 

The Terrapins dropped the opener but came back 
strong to win the next seven in a row for Coach 
Doyle Royal. Maryland (4-1) finished second to 
North Carolina (5-0) in the ACC standings. 

John Myers won 12 of fifteen matches to top the 
nctmen. Bud Leightheiser (11-4) and Jack Clifford 
(10-5) also were outstanding. Myers and Clifford 
formed the top doubles team with a 12-3 record. 
Home matches are played on the tennis courts 
behind the Women's Field House, but new courts 
are to be constructed in the near future adjacent 
to the new Activities Building. 



Co-Coaches . . . Jack Faber and Al Hagey 
With an attack many called the best in the Nation, 
Maryland was rated an early season choice for the 
National lacrosse title, especially after it had rout- 
ed Virginia 18-7. 

The Terrapins rolled to easy wins in their first 
five games, but a noted weakness was a defense 
that wasn't up to championship standards. That 
weakness was verified in the Navy game, as the 
Terrapins fell, 12-7. Maryland finished with nine 
wins in 12 games. 

Princeton bowed to the Terrapins, 13-9, in a game 
where Maryland scored a goal a minute for the 
first seven minutes. 

George Corrigan was selected as an All-America 

{Coach Faber can be contacted at T304 or through 
exten-iion 231.) 


Freshman Basketball . . . 

Tops, recordwise, was the frosh basketball team 
with 10 wins in 11 games. Moving up to the var- 
sity next season will be leading scorer Frank Fuqua 
6'7" center, who scored 40 points in one game; Bob 
O'Brien and Mark Vodopia, set shot artists; drivers 
Drew Schaufler, Bob Nardone and Bob Hardiman. 
All possess height and speed and fit well into 
varsity coach Bud Millikan's future plans. 

Freshman Sports 

The minor leagues at Maryland are the freshman 
teams and its here that future Maryland stars are 

The "basic training" received under the guidance 
)f experienced coaching personnel is the first step 
cowards the varsity. Even if you weren't great \n 
high school, don't let that stop you from trying 
out for a freshman sport. The starting center on 
last year's varsity basketball team wasn't a first 
stringer in high school, but under coaching and 
development here at Maryland was the team's sec- 
ond highest scorer. 

Like the varsity, freshman sports at Maryland last 
vear had good seasons. 


Freshman Baseball . . . 

Phil Calder's .409 batting average headed the list 
of seven .300 plus batting averages on the frosh 
baseball team, which split in six games. 

Bob Kiatta batted .333 and hit the team's only 
home run. 

Stanley Bobb (1-0) and Pat Cinnamond (2-1) ac- 
counted for the top pitching. 

Freshman Football . . . 

The freshman football season was a success, if 
only because of the first win ever scored over the 
Naval Academy Plebes. Coach Whitey Dovell's team 
finished with a 3-1 record, but like the varsity, lost 
in a bowl game to Bullis Prep. 

Boys who have moved up to the varsity are Frank 
Tamburello, quarterback; guard Jack Davis, tackle 
Mike Sandusky, center Gene Alderton and half- 
backs Howie Dare, Ralph Hawkins, Harold Hull, 
John McVicker and Jack Healy. 

Freshman Lacrosse . . . 

Coach Danny Bf)nthron's frosh lacrosse team won 
four and dropped three for the season. Goalie Dick 
McNichols and attackman Frank Walsh are two 
boys who should help this year's varsity, after a 
good year on the frosh team.

coeds swimming, badminton, tennis, bowling, bas- 
ketball, volleyball and archery. 

The WRA is run by the women students and is 
open to all women on campus. Tournaments are 
held between dorms and sororities with awards and 
trophies going to the winners. Each year the WRA

With the Student Activities Committee and the 
cheerleaders behind it, Maryland's school spirit 
has reached an all-time high. The student's re- 
sponse in the football card sections and "meet the 
team" jaunts, and at pep rallies and "noise par- 
ades" have shown that the work of these organiza- 
tions has been enthusiastically supported. 

The cheerleaders, under Gary Hayman, will put 
forth all their efforts to give the teams backing and 

To display loyalty to our teams, all the students 
at the university contribute— by their attendance 
and voices at all university sports activities. One 
of the best ways to show your loyalty to the school 
is to know the school songs and cheers. Then you 
can show your team that you are behind them. 

Not all of these songs and cheers are traditional. 
In their efforts to keep the school cheers fresh 
and new, SAC and the cheerleaders sponsor a 
cheer contest each spring so that everyone can 
suggest new cheers. This way, as new students 
enter the University, new cheers are added to the 
collection— and Maryland's cheering spirit remains 
on top. 



The foUoiving are a few of the many songs 
and cheers heard at athletic events and 
campus rallies 

Sons of Old Maryland 

Sons of old Maryland 
Old Maryland needs you! 
Stand by your colors, boys, 
And to them e'er be true! 
Fight for old Maryland, 
Old Liners stand, 
Defenders of the Black and Gold 
Throughout the land!

Music by Wilmer Orpivood, Jr., '43 
Words by A. Manley Poivell, '41 

Drink to the Terrapin! 

All bold hearted men. 

We have no fear of hell, 

For we're loyal sons and fellows, 

Drink to the Terrapin

Bottoms up! Bottoms up! 

To Maryland.

Classes begin on the hour and last for 50 minutes. 
If a teacher fails to appear for his class, students 
must wait 20 minutes for a Dean, 15 minutes for 
a Doctor, and 10 minutes for an instructor before 
leaving. After three unexcused absences, a student 
is reported to his Dean and his parents are noti- 
fied. Too many absences lower a grade and may 
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 sched- 
ule of classes. Permission from the student's Dean 
and a fee are required to drop a subject. 


The activities fee, paid at registration, supports 
publications, dances, and other activities open to 


This fee covers the cost of admission to all inter- 
collegiate sport events held on the College Park 
campus, and is represented by the Athletic book 
received at registration, which must be shown with 
ID card at all games. 


The post office, located in the Ad building, handles 
stamps, regular mail, and notices from the Uni- 
versity and organizations to the students. 


The campus telephone number is WA 7-3800. Cam- 
pus phones may be used for on-campus calls. Oft 
campus calls may be made on pay telephones. Tele- 
grams may be sent from the campus telephone ex- 
change located in the east end of the Education 
building basement. Incoming wires are either de- 
livered or phoned to student residences on campus. 


A cafeteria is located on the lower floor of the 
Dining Hall. The University Dairy, next to Ross- 
borough Inn, serves ice cream and dairy products 
every day except Simdays. 


The "Diamondback" and "Old Line" are available 
in the basement of the Ad Building, the Library, 
the Dining Hall and in most classroom buildings. 
The "Terrapin" is distributed to individual stu- 
dents in the middle of May. The "M-Book" may be 
picked up by February freshmen in the publica- 
tions office. 


College Park is served by the Greyhound and Trail- 
ways bus lines. Greyhound schedules and tickets 
are obtained in the Varsity Grill. Trailways and 
local bus information are found in the College 
Park Delicatessen. 



The University library and the library annex are 
open from 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. 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. 


Every college on campus has a separate catalog as 
well as the professional schools in Baltimore. The 
Academic and General Regulations bulletin is a 
general catalog published each year. It describes 
entrance requirements, costs, fees, facilities, resi- 
dence requirements, traffic regulations and attend- 
ance requirements. To get copies of these catalogs, 
pick them up in the Publications office in Room 
28 of Symons Hall. 


During the past year students have curiously watch- 
ed the progress of the new Student Union Building, 
located on the northwest end of the campus. Now 
open for use to the student body, the building will 
combine many student conveniences which have 
previously been scattered across the campus. The 


post office, originally located in the Ad building, 
will be in the new building. Also the Student 
Supply Store serving the needs of the student body 
by selling school supplies and required texts for 
the courses offered each semester, and offices for 
student organizations such as the Independent 
Students Association, SGA and Student Employ- 
ment. The main attraction will be a quiet lounge 
and Rec Hall which will serve coffee, donuts and 
other quick in-between class snacks. This is des- 
tined to be the new nerve center of the campus.
