class of 1959 





the 1955 m-book is dedicated 
to the freshman class with the 
hope that it will serve as an 
informative and friendly guide 
throughout their first year at 
the university of maryland 

this is your year 

You walk away from the Coliseum and the 
opening assembly in a sort of puzzled won- 
der — Can there be that many new students 
just entering like myself? 

Walking down the Mall path to the Armory, 
you take in the geometrically planned cam- 
pus, a conglomeration of new buildings and 
historical ones, landscaped into postcard per- 
fection. The campus eye-appeal has attracted 
you. But it is the teeming life of the "little 
metropolis" that will complete the chain that 
ties you to it. 

First there is the social season, beginning 
with sorority rushing and followed later in 
the semester by fraternity rushing. Teas, par- 
ties, smokers and pledging make the world 
go round. Besides Greek flngs are a vast as- 
sortment of Orientation week activities for 
you. From the placement test, where you 
wonder if you can skip English I, to the 
Freshman Mixer at the end of the week, 
where the typical freshman couple is picked, 
the spotlight is on the frosh. 

The football season — crash, bang, fizz, 
whamm! — pep rallies, torchlight parades, car 
caravans to greet the returning Terps at 
National Airport, and that weekend of week- 
ends. Homecoming, when the Greeks compete 
for decorations and floats, old grads take 

Testudo, a Mary- 
Icnid tradition, the 
often kidnapped 
symbol of Terp 
Town, now rests on 
a permanent base in 
front of the Byrd 
:| Stadium field house. 

oyer the campus, and you escort that special 
girl to the game and the dance. 

With the change in -seasons, a thick white 
snow will usually cover the green just as the 
Chapel Chimes sound Christmas Carols be- 
tween classes. The Yuletide Pageant in the 
Chapel, the lighting of the outdoor tree, the 
Greek Christmas formals, and that long, long 
holiday . . . 

All the while things are buzzing in the 
Central Auditorium. University Theater has 
given two productions already and perhaps 
one in-the-round besides. The Kappa Alpha 
minstrel and the Modern Dance Concert fill 
other nights. 

As the last hours of the morning are spent 


before the last final exam in January, 
thoughts begin turning to a quick escape from 
College Park between semesters. Then— What 
— registration again? 

Spring semester brings with it the class 
proms, the Frosh prom for you, the Inter- 
fraternity Sing, and Spring Week. This com- 
paratively new innovation is devoted to a 
week of entertainment just before June exams. 
A sample of regular events— the Turtle Der- 
by; the annual musical revue, "Interlude ; 
May Day and Mortar Board tapping of junior 

We're ahead of the times. It is almost im- 
possible to forget the hectic spring elections 
for Student Government, the Women-Pay-Ali 
Dance, the Sadie Hawkins Race, the No-Shave 
Week, and Ag Weekend. 

Many things more will be left for you to 
discover alone, most significant — the sense 
of accomplishment after the long, toilsome 
study period during and well after lecture 
halls and labs have passed on, the joy in meet- 
ing and working with others, and the warmth 
of college friendships. 

In simplest language, all we old upperclass 
men can tell you is— make the most of it here 
in "Terp Town!"

Dr. Wilson H. Elkins, a Phi Beta Kappa and 
three letter man, was born in Medina, Texas, 
in 1908. He attended the University of Texas 
where he received B.A. and M.A. degrees. 
In 1933 he was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship 
to Oxford University where he attained Bache- 
lor of Literature and Doctor of Philosophy 
degrees in 1936. In 1938 he became president 
of San Angelo Junior College and in 1949 he 
went to Texas Western to hold the same posi- 
tion. He was inaugurated as president of 
the University of Maryland on October 29, 


from the president 

• • • 

Each year we lose a number of students 
through graduation and we welcome a larger 
number of freshmen who begin their pursuit 
of higher education. A very large percentage 
of the newcomers have average ability or 
above but, unfortunately, a much smaller per- 
centage graduate. The loss is too high, al- 
though some of it is quite natural. 

Too many students come to the University 
without seriousness of purpose, and they fail 
to apply their abilities. Most failures are due 
to lack of application and not to deficiencies. 

I urge you to consider the benefits you will 
derive from the completion of a college 
course of study. It affords you an opportunity 
for advancement. It is clearly in your in- 
terest to do ymir best. Good luck all of the 

Wilson H. Elkins

The -University of Maryland dates b^ck to 
1807, when the first school o™^ ]^"''.^' p'J 
the College of Medicine, was founded in l^al 
toore !n more than 140 years since its 
founding, the University has expanded, both 
Xsicallv and scholastically, until it now oc- 
c'^apYes a poTiLn as one of the leading uni- 

^^SlL^tl^e CoVegToZMed^ 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, the Maryland 
State College, the first agricultural college 
in the United States, was established under 
the name of the Maryland Agricultural Col- 

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 
subsequent 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. 

maryland today 

The University of Maryland is not limited by 
the College Park and Baltimore boundaries — 
it stretches overseas to virtually every part 
of the western world through the College of 
Special and Continuation Studies founded in 
1949. The CSCS program is not a correspond- 
ence course; it consists of classroom courses 
taught by instructors who must be approved 


by the dean of their respective college in 
College Park. 

Although much of the overseas program 
is directed at military personnel, there is a 
Munich Day-time program for the sons and 
daughters of U. S. government, military, and 
civilian personnel in Germany. 

In typical American classrooms, they earn 
credit at a fully accredited American college 
established overseas under the supervision of 
the dean of CSCS. The Munich students pub- 
lish their own newspaper. The Continental 
Collegiate; their yearbook is not the just plain 
Terrapin, but the Bavarian Terrapin. 

CSCS also maintains a vast educational 
program in the State and surrounding area 
bringing the University to the four million 
square mile mark with over 150 sites. 

the 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 character. 

The escutcheon bears the Calvert and Cross- 
lands arms quartered. The first and fourth 


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

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

come all new and returning students to the

sga activities 

It will soon become customary for you to 
pick up the lastest copy of the Diamondback, 
campus tri-weekly, and read of the latest con- 
troversy, proposal, debate, decision, or what 
have you, involving the Student Government 
Association. For this is an active group, dedi- 
cated to satisfying the needs of students and 
regulating principles and policies. The SGA 
is divided into three parts: 

Executive Council: The council is the policy- 
making group. Duties include appropriation 
of funds from the student activity fee, paid 
at registration, for dances. University Thea- 
ter, athletic events, publications, and other 
open student activities. A meeting is held 
every two weeks on Tuesday night in the Stu- 
dent Union Bull Room. All students are in- 
vited to attend. 

Men's League: The league is responsible 
for enforcement of campus regulations con- 
cerning men students. Duties cover men's 

Associated Women Students: The AWS 
handles much the same job as Men's League 
for women students at the University. 


With three or more candidates competing 
for any SGA or class office, a primary election 



tytcuTwt coowctt 





will be held several weeks before the Spring 
Elections. All candidates must have a 2.0 
academic average. 

Frosh elections are held in October. All 
freshmen who secure petitions from the SGA 
office and have the required number of fresh- 
man signatures prior to the deadline may run 
for office. 


The Executive Council determines chair- 
manships, which are open to all students who 
submit applications to the SGA office stating 
their qualifications. Sub-committee chairman- 
ships and committee members are chosen by 
the chairman on the basis of experience. 

Committees under SGA are Ways and 
Means, Elections, Organization and Procedure, 
Student Welfare, Social Affairs, Campus Im- 
provement, Student Activities, Constitution, 
Campus Chest, Freshman Orientation, Home- 
coming, Dad's Day, Student Union, Cultural 
Program, Public Relations, Traffic Appeals, 
Job Placement, and Who's Who. 

As a new student, you may be appointed to 
any committee by submitting an application 
to the SGA office during the first two weeks 
of school. Application should include quali- 
fications and experience, campus or home ad- 
dress, telephone. 

Class prom chairmships are announced in 


the Dtamondback as to dates of application. 
Applications may be made in the fall for Dad's 
Day and Homecoming, two big football week- 

Campus Chest conducts a consolidated drive 
for charities every spring on the College Park 
campus. Campus Chest Week, the Sophomore 
Carnival, and the Ugliest Man on Campus 
Contest are all fund-raising projects in the 
spring. Applicants may join different phases 
of the drive.

Welcome to, the campus of the University of 
Maryland! This is your university, and the 
Student Government Association hopes that 
you will become an integral part of it just 
as it will, in the chaotic days of Freshman 
Orientation, become a part of you. 

In welcoming- you to the University I 
would like to emphasize that just as this 
is your university so are we of the executive 
council your student government. 

The University of Maryland is old in years 
and traditions but in its ideas and continuing 
growth it retains a feeling of dynamic youth. 
In the coming year there will be new plans 
to discuss and new problems to solve. 

I hope that this letter will serve as an 
open bid to the members of the class of 1959 
to attend our meetings, give us your sugges- 
tions, and visit our offices in the Student 
Union building whenever you have the op-

the afrotc program 

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning, from 
mid-October to December and again in late 
spring, the green fields on either side of the 
Armory are covered by a blanket of blue . . . 
Air Force Blue . . . and drill begins again for 
the second largest Air Force Reserve Officers' 
Training Corps in the United States. 

Drill is supplemented by instruction in class- 
rooms. Basic ROTC, or the first two years, is 
required for every male student on campus, 
unless he is exempt by previous military 
service. Should a student enter as an upper- 
classman, he must complete two years or take 
ROTC until graduation, whichever occurs first. 

Third and fourth year programs may be 
elected after a careful screening, both mental 
and physical, by the governing board. Upon 
completion of the four year (basic plus ad- 
vanced) training program, the student may 
either become a second lieutenant in the U. S. 
Air Force, the Air Force Reserve Corp, or the 
Air National Guard. ROTC is embodied with- 
in a separate headquarters in the basement of 
the Armory. 

Colonel Joseph R. Ambrose, Dean of the 
College of Military Science, is the Command- 
ing Officer who co-ordinates the activities of

Jim Tatum 

Director of Athletics 

Topped off by a 74-13 rout of Missouri on 
Thanksgiving Day, Maryland finished off the 
'54 season with a record of seven wins, two 
losses, and one tie, while being ranked eighth 

The Terps' only set-backs were at the hands 
of UCLA and Miami, both by a total of seven 
points. Wake Forest deadlocked the Liners 
13-13 early in the season. 

Co-Captains Dick Bielski and John Irvine 
provided the main scoring punch for the 
Marylanders who rolled up 280 points, while 
holding their opponents to only 67. 


Bob Pellegrini, a guard last season, has 
been shifted to center to give the Terrapins 
more strength in the middle of the line. 
Pellegrini along with Bill Walker will be 
Maryland's two top All-American prospects. 

I'diil Kramer completes a pass during the UCLA game, 


Doyle Royal 


Maryland maintained their seven straight 
year record of winning all conference soccer 
games. This includes both the Atlantic Coast 
and Southern Conferences. 

Under Coach Doyle Royal's direction the 
Terps compiled an overall record of five wins, 
three set-backs, and two ties. In conference 
play the hooters picked up three wins and one 
tie on the way to the ACC crown. 

Otto Winckelmann won the ACC individual 
scoring crown with 13 markers for the sea- 

Only four lettermen were lost due to grad- 
uation, while Coach Royal can look forward 
to 14 returning letter wearers. 


Coach "Sully" Krouse's grapplers brought 
another ACC title back to College Park — this 
time, the conference wrestling crown. Mary- 
land won the title on the strength of a 5-0 
record in ACC matches. This was the fifth 
straight year that Maryland has won their 
conference championship. 

In the individual tournament Roney Car- 
roll, Mike Sandusky, and Danny Little cap- 
tured their weight class titles. Little, who 
won all five of his ACC regular season bouts 
was named the "Outstanding Wrestler" of 
the tournament. 


'Sully" Krouse 



cross country 

Jim Kehoe 


The liners added another ACC crown to their 
growing list, as they captured the conference 
cross country meet held at College Park. 

Jim Beatty of North Carolina set a new 
course record of 18:07.8 minutes, but it was 
not enough to beat the Terp harriers, who 
finished on top with 86 points. North Caro- 
lina was second with 26, while Duke cap- 
tured the third position. 

Burr Grim battled Beatty for the lead 
throughout the race, but Beatty pulled ahead 
near the finish to win by 20 yards. 

Coach Jim Kehoe's harriers finished seventh 
in the NCAA cross country meet held at 
East Lansing Michigan, participating against 
the top cross country teams in the nation. 


indoor track 

Coach Jim Kehoe 

Defending champion, Maryland lost the in- 
door track title to North Carolina by one half 
point, 36-85 1.^. It was sweet revenge for the 
Tar Heels who had previously lost the cross 
country title to Maryland- 

The University's teaiii participated in four 
other meets in addition to the ACC champion- 
ships. Joe Hemler set a new record in the 
D.C. AAU meet when he was clocked in the 
time of 1:14.1 for the 600 yard run. In the 
relay events, Maryland captured the D.C. 
AAU mile relay, and broke records in both 
two and four mile relays in the VMI Winter 

Carl Party won the two mile handicap race 
in 9:20.7 at the New York A.C. games in 
Madison Square Garden, to highlight a fine 
season over the banked boards. 


outdoor track 

Coach Jim Kehoe 

Burr Grim, the sensational sophomore, paved 
the way with four victories in the mile run 
on the cinders, as the Terps won four of the 
six meets in which they competed. 

In addition to the dual meet and local 
championship victories in the mile, Grim set 
a meet record in the IC-4A Championships, 
running the mile distance in 4:09.9. 

Maryland, defending AGO outdoor track 
champions, failed to hold that position as 
North Carolina knocked the Terps from the 
top by a scant margin of 1^/4 points. In the 
previous year's championship meet the Terps 
turned back Carolina by just 1% points. 



Bud Millikan 


Compiling a record of 19 wins and 6 losses, 
the hoopsters finished one of the finest sea- 
sons in years. 

Bob Kessler, led the Terps to a successful 
defense of the Ail-American City Tournament, 
as the Liners dumped Cincinnati, 78-61. For 
his efforts Kessler was placed on the first 
five of the All-Tourney Team. 

The Terps, who at one time were rated as 
high as sixth in the nation, pulled off one of 
the upsets of the year when they tripped 
North Carolina State 68-64. 

All games this year will be played in the 
New Student Activities Building with a seat- 
ing capacity of 13,500. 


Although winning only four of their thirteen 
matches, the linksmen look ahead to brighter 
days. This year Coach Frank Cronin can 
call on several returning veterans and a bump- 
er crop of golfers up from the freshman team. 

The Terps started and finished the season 
strong, but during the middle weeks they lost 
seven straight matches before putting to- 
gether a victory. 

Opening the season against South Carolina, 
the Terrapins drove out a IGV2 to 10 ^/^ vic- 
tory. The season's finale was even better for 
the Marylanders, as they drubbed Johns Hop- 
kins 9 to 0. 


Frank Cronin 





H. Burton Shipley 


On the diamond, the Terps finished with a 
mediocre 8-10 record, but with the noticeable 
improvement of several of the younger play- 
ers at the end of the season, the Liners could 
easily "go all the way" this season. 

Coach Burton Shipley, who this spring com- 
pleted his 33rd year at College Park, can look 
forward to the return of Bill Walker who 
led the team in batting with .349 mark; 
Charlie Pratt, .326; Bob Murray, .306; and 
Ralph Ward, .302. Catcher Phil Calder, used 
most in a pinch-hitting role, boasted a lofty 
.375 average. 

In the pitching department, four fine hurlers 
will be back, along with two freshmen mounds- 
men. Russ Duffey, Bob Weiss, Stan Bobb, and 
Bob Carr are due to see a great deal of duty 
on the hill, as are George Gaffney and Don 
Henderson, up from the frosh team. 



Coach __JVI/Sgt. Harold Blume 

Under the direction of coach M/Sgt. Harold 
Blume the Maryland marksmen compiled a 
record of 8 wins and 3 losses, while winning 
their section of the National Rifle Association 
Section Match. 

Firing in the William Randolph Hearst 
Matches, the Terps managed to outshoot the 
other Air Force teams for the victory. 

Linn Savage led the individual shooters for 
the year with an average of 284.10 out of a 
possible 300 per match. 


Coach Doyle Royal 

Highlighted by the brilliant play of sophomore 
Dave Freishtat, the netters stroked their way 
to eight wins, while only suffering four set- 

One of the Terps' most impressive wins came 
at the hands of Clemson, when the Mary- 
landers took all six single matches, four of 
them straight sets. Against Johns Hopkins, 
the College Parkers put on a repeat perform- 
ance, capturing every match, with eight of 
them in straight sets. 


Jack Faber and Al Heagy 



For the first time since 1940, Maryland won 
the National Lacrosse Championship, along 
with the first undefeated season in the school's 

The championship was in doubt until Mary- 
land rallied in the last period of the Navy 
game to defeat the defending champion 9-8. 

Leading the Terps were All-American candi- 
dates Charles Wicker, Rennie Smith, John 
Simmons, Ben Goertemiller, Jim Keating, Dick 
Corrigan, and sophomore goalie Jim Kappler. 

Only four lettermen were lost from last 
year's team, and the Terps should look for- 
ward to another great season, 


freshman sports 

Freshman teams are sponsored in almost every 
sport at Maryland. Playing a regular sched- 
ule of games, the Frosh contests attract al- 
most as much attention as the Varsity games. 
Individuals wishing to try out for a freshman 
team should watch the Diamondback for an- 
nouncements of tryouts. 


In addition to the intercollegiate athletic set- 
up, a complete intramural program is carried 
on. Under the direction of Track Coach James 
Kehoe, the program is divided into two divi- 
sions — the open and fraternity leagues. 

All undergraduate males are eligible for the 
open league, while play in the fraternity 
league is restricted to actives and pledges of 
the various fraternities. 

Touch football, basketball, softball, wrestj' 


ing, boxing', gymnastics, golf, tennis, horse- 
shoes, track, cross-country, bait-casting, bowl- 
ing, foul shooting, table tennis, badminton, 
volleyball, and weight lifting make up the 
'mural schedule. 

Additional information may be obtained by 
picking up an intramural handbook in the 
office located in the Armory, or by calling ex- 
tension 470.

maryland spirit 

It isn't very often that a Maryland student 
can lead an intelligent conversation after a 
football game in Byrd Stadium — he just hasn't 
got any voice to talk v^^ith. 

Led by the cheerleaders at every home game, 
the Terp Town stands vibrate to a rousing 
crescendo throughout each play. Listen for 
the traditional chanting of the Victory Song 
and the counting of points after every Terra- 
pin score. Be prepared to join in or it won't 
be long until you can't help but add your 
voice to the chant. 

Students not only join cheering sections at 
games, but form car caravans to meet the 
team at National Airport on their return from 
away games, march in pre-game parades, and 
yell in pep and noise rallies as effigies of 
weekend opponents are burned in blazing bon- 

Card sections, sponsored by the Student 
Activities Committee, will be featured this 
year during both the football and basketball 
seasons. The sections will be filled by far- 
sighted rooters who arrive early at games 
wearing white sweaters, shirts or blouses. 

The most effective way to back the team and 
the cheerleaders is to learn the school songs 
and cheers. It will be hard to forget them 
after your first home game!

SAC is the hub which moves the giant wheel 
of student activities on campus. At bi-monthly 
meetings representatives from the dorms, 
Greeks, and Independents, as well as any other 
interested students, plan pep rallies and 
"away" weekends. Syracuse University is the 
destination for this year's gala "away" week- 

Aside from sports activities SAC is re- 
sponsible for the increasingly popular Spring 
Week which features the Turtle Derby, Mad 
Hatters Parade, and a dance on the Mall.

"Go team — go!" Catchy cheers led by agile 
cheerleaders stimulate an eager crowd to urge 
its team to victory. 

It looks so simple, but hours of hard work 
are behind the limber movements and precision 
timing of the cheerleaders. These spirited 
figures, in their red and white uniforms, are 
a familiar sight at pep rallies and all sports 
events. Tryouts, held in the fall, are open to 
all students who maintain a 2.0 average, 


Here are just a few of Maryland's favorite 
songs and .cheers. 

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 !

Drink to the Terrapin! 

All bold hearted men. 

We have no fear of hell, 

Fore we're loyal sons and fellows, 

Drink to the Terrapin 

May God bless her sons! 

When the toast is in the cup, 

Bottoms up! Bottoms up! 

To Maryland. 


maryland! my maryland! 

Thy sons and daughters throng they door, 

Maryland! My Maryland! 
Their hearts and hopes they bring to thee, 

Maryland! My Maryland! 
And place them in thy custody, 
Proud hearts that pledge their love for thee:- 
They come from mountain, farm and shore, 

Maryland University! 

Go forth, brave youth, throughout the state: — 

Maryland! My Maryland! 
And your actions show her great: 

Maryland! My Maryland! 
Thy Alma Mater's name and fame, 
Oh, keep alive her holy flame. 
Until all hearts as one exclaim, 

Maryland! My Maryland! 

Cheer, three times cheer, and one cheer more, 

For Maryland! dear Maryland! 
Send forth that cry from hill to shore: — 

Maryland University! 
Fair mother of our brightest dreams. 
Blest giver of life's precious things 
To thee each heart its service brings: — 

Maryland! My Maryland!

rallies, is printed on the back end sheet,

general information 



All students are expected to attend classes 
regularly. 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. 

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. Permis- 
sion from the student's dean and a small fee 
are required to drop a subject. 

Students may drop a required course only 
at the discretion of the dean of the College. 

The number of exams given during a semes- 
ter is determined by the instructor. Usually, 
two or three one-hour exams plus a two-hour 
final are given in each course. If a student 
misses an exam, a makeup test may be taken 
upon permission of the instructor and pay- 
ment of a one dollar fee to the registrar.

activities fee 

The activities fee, paid at registration, sup- 
ports publications, dances, and other activities 
open to students. 

athletic fee 

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


All students living in dormitories are required 
to eat in the Dining Hall. Dining Hall cards 
are issued at registration. All other students 
must make their own arrangements. A cafe- 
teria is located on the lower floor of the Din- 
ing Hall and in the Student Union Building, 
serving meals at reasonable rates. There are 
several eating establishments in the nearby 
College Park area, and several Greek-letter 
houses take in a few boarders. 

Next to the famous Rossborough Inn on the 
boulevard is the University Dairy, serving ice 
cream and other dairy products every day ex- 
cept Sunday. 


Located in the basement of the Student Union 
Building is the campus Post Office. During 


registration, each student is assigned a post 
office box, which he shares with one or more 
students. The post office handles regular mail 
and communications from the University and 
its organizations to the student. 

Campus telephones may be used to make on- 
campus calls. Off-campus calls are made on 
pay phones located in the dormitories and 
other campus buildings. 

Telegrams may be sent from the telephone 
exchange located in the east end of the Educa- 
tion Building basement. Incoming wires are 
either delivered or phoned to student resi- 
dences on campus. The University phone num- 
ber is WArfield 7-3800 and dorms may be re- 
quested from the operator. 

"Will it go out 
today?" — a typical 
scene in the campus 
post office. 


dress on campus 

Dress on campus is, of course, at the discre- 
tion of the student, however, propriety should

ice for the students. However, there are sev- 
eral laundry and dry cleaning concerns in Col- 
lege Park. Several dorms have coin-operated 
automatic washers and dryers. Students may

postal rates.
