GENERAL INFORMATION 

Academic 

As a University student you are expected to at- 
tend classes regularly. Classes last for 50 minutes 
and begin on the hour. 

There is no unlimited cut system at the Univer- 
sity. At the beginning of the semester each of your 
instructors will tell you how he handles cuts. 
After three unexcused cuts, you will be reported 
to your dean, and your parents will be notified. 
Too many absences can influence your grade and, 
eventually, may cause you to fail a course. 

If you wish to drop a course after the semester 
begins, you must secure permission from your ad- 
visor and your dean. If you do not drop the course 
before the time specified you will recei\e an F 
in the course. 

Exams take place during the semester as well 
as during exam week. Each instructor decides how 
many hour exams, usualh two or three, he will 
give. If you miss an exam you may take a make-up 
exam with the consent of your instructor and the 
payment of a SI. 00 fee to tlie registrar. 

Activities Book 

During registration you pav an acti\ities fee and 
an athletic fee. You recei\e an activities book con- 



taining numbered tickets. By presenting these 
tickets, accompanied by your ID card, you will be 
able to receive campus publications, and to attend 
all inter-collegiate sporting events. University The- 
ater productions, dances, and all other campus 
activities open to the student body. 

Board 

All students living in the dorms are required to 
eat in the University Dining Hall. All other stu- 
dents may make their own arrangements. 

"Terp Inn," located in the Student Union base- 
ment, is a handy place for that "coffee break" or 
mid-afternoon snack. On Sunday e\enings inexpen- 
sive dinners are served in "Terp Inn." 

There is a cafeteria on the lower floor of the 
Dining Hall where meals are reasonably priced. 

Across from Rossborough Inn, the Dairy sells 
ice cream and dairy products. Other eating estab- 
lishments also may be found in College Park. 

Books and Supplies 

Books and school supplies may be purchased in 
the Book Store of the Student Union and at the 
Maryland Book Exchange across from the South 
Gate. Both of these stores carry novelties, gifts and 
sports clothing. Also, the service fraternitv. APO, 
sponsors the sale of used books in the Old Gym. 

9 



Communications 

When \i)a legisier. \\>u will be assigned a post 
office box. Von mav share this with one or more 
students. The Post Office and boxes are located in 
the basement of the Student Union. Women will 
recei\e mail in their dormitories as well as in their 
post office box. Men may receive mail only in 
their post office Ijoxes. Limited mailing facilities 
are available at the campus Post Office; however, 
the Post Office in College Park provides additional 
facilities. 

Campus phones may be used before 4 P.M. to 
make campus calls. Other calls must be made on 
the pav phones located in the dormitories and 
\aiious buildings. In order for a student to be 
reached, the Universitv number, WArfield 7-3800. 
must be called. Then the operator will connect 
the call with the dormitory requested. Telegrams 
may be sent from the telephone exchange in the 
east end of the Education I^uilding. Incoming tele- 
grams are 'phoned or deli\ered to the residences. 

Infirmary 

All undergraduates mav receive routine medical 
tare from the infirmarv located west of the Dining 
Hall. A staff of l'ni\ersitv doctors and nurses is on 
hand. You mav use this facilitv whene\er necessarv. 



10 



Laundry 

The University is not responsible for your laun- 
dry. There are washing machines and dryers in the 
dormitories. The women's dormitories have iron- 
ing boards, but students must supply their own 
irons. In addition, there are se\eral commercial 
laundries in College Park. 

Library 

\Vhile we are welcoming you as a new student, 
we are also welcoming another new addition to the 
University! Sometime this vear, a new Library 
will be opened. Situated on the mall, it will en- 
able greater access to more books, and will have 
many advantages over the present library. Until 
its completion, the old Library will continue in 
service. 

Lost and Found 

You may turn in or reco\er articles at the cam- 
pus police station located at the North Gate. 

Parking and Traffic 

If you intend to have a car on campus, it is im- 
perative that you register it during registration. 
You will be assigned a parking lot and will be 
given a sticker to be displayed on the rear window 
of your car. You will also receive a list of park- 



ing and traffic regulations. These regulations are 
strictly enforced by campus police. 

Anyone receiving a ticket and wishing to appeal 
his case may appear before the Traffic Appeals 
Board. 

Publications Distribution 

The Diainondback anti Old Line are distributed 
in various buildings on campus. The Terrapin is 
distributed in May. Freshmen receive the M-Book 
during registration, and upperclassmen may pur- 
chase it in the Student Store.

is the site of many sporting events, concerts, ex- 
hibitions and other activities. Seating 12.000, the 
building also contains a swimming pool, classrooms, 
and manv sports facilities.

What to Bring to College— COEDS 



Obviously, like most girls, you want to know 
"what to bring to college." Many of the same 
things you needed at home will be necessary at the 
University of Maryland— but, don't bring every- 
thing. Your books and current wardrobe alone will 
take up every square inch of space, without having 
to harbor the collection of knick-knacks! 

Plan your wardrobe carefully and to fit your 
budget. Wool skirts and sweaters are a perennial 
favorite. Cardigans and at least one blazer will 
provide interim weather warmth. Saddles still lead 
the field with sneakers running a close second. Of 
course, the cold-windy weather calls for an extra- 
warm and practical coat for class. For rainy weather 
a slicker and hat are your best bet. 

And, of course, don't forget your dressy clothes, 
gloves and a hat for Sunday; dates call for some- 
thing special in heels and hose and you will need 
a formal for those special dances. In the other ex- 
treme, a pair of bermudas will fit the bill for 
lounging and studying in the dorm or house. 

Bring essential and practical items to college . . . 
to allow yourself plenty of time to enjoy the com- 
ing year. 



What to Bring to College— MEN 

A big headache for the student who plans to 
Uve on campus for the first time is the problem: 
what to bring to wear, and to furnish a room? 
Therefore, here are a few words of advice which 
may go a long way in helping the student living 
away from home for the first time. 

It is a good idea to meet your roommate if this 
is at all possible. By talking it over with him, you 
can decide between yourselves what furnishings, 
such as radios and lamps, you will want to bring. 

As for what kind of clothes to bring, this is 
somewhat up to the individual, a student is not 
told what to wear on the Maryland campus. How- 
ever, students are advised to be sensible and prac- 
tical in their dress; wearing the proper clothing 
for the occasion such as casual clothes for classes, 
sports clothes for football games, tie and coat to a 
play, and a suit or "tux" to a dance. 

Both the black and the khaki-colored khakies 
with a shirt or a V-necked sweater and white bucks 
or saddles are a classroom favorite. The letter- 
award sweater earned in high school will not make 
you a B.M.O.C. with the young ladies . . . they 
may have meant something in high school but 
have little recognition value at Maryland.

HISTORY AND TRADITIONS 



You are now entering into a phase of your life 
which you will always cherish. Your college mem- 
ories will be among your happiest ones, but not 
merely because you are meeting many new people 
who share your problems, interests, and perhaps 
even your dormitory. Tradition plays an important 
part in recollections of college days. Long after 
you have forgotten the person who sat next to you 
in a class, or the class itself, you will remember 
the Chapel bells ringing every hour, marking each 
passing day. When you leave the classrooms for the 
last time, college days will be behind you, but they 
will always be with you. All of the experiences 
which make your days at Maryland Universitv 
unique will be stored in your file of memories. 
They will attain an even greater stature as the 
years wipe away the few unpleasant recollections, 
and enrich your joyous moments. If you make the 
most of your opportunities now, your college days 
will be the happiest of your life. Just as the Uni- 
versity gives you a fine educational background to 
use in the future attainment of your life's goals. 
it also provides a background for what can be 
your happiest moments.

History 

The University of Maryland dates back to 1807, 
when the first school of the University, the College 
of Medicine, was founded in Baltimore. During 
the 150 years since its founding, the University 
has expanded, both physically and scholastically, 
until it now occupies a position as one of the lead- 
ing universities in the country. 

After the College of Medicine was founded, there 
followed within a few years the establishment 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 Agricultural 
College, the first agricultural college in the United 
States and the second in the western hemisphere, 
was established on an estate purchased from 
Charles B. Calvert, Esquire. The college was fi- 
nanced by the sale of stock at $25 a share. 

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

In 1920, the professional schools of the Univer- 
sity in Baltimore, and the Maryland State College, 
as it was by then known, in College Park were 

20 



merged to form what is now known as the Uni- 
\ersity of Maryland. However, the University of 
Maryland is not limited by the College Park and 
Baltimore boundaries; it stretches overseas to vir- 
tually e\ery part of the western world through 
the College of Special and Continuation Studies 
founded in 1949. The CSCS program is not a cor- 
respondence course; it consists of classroom courses 
taught by instructors who must be approved by 
the dean of their respective colleges in College 
Park. 

Although much of the overseas program is di- 
rected toward military personnel, there is a Mimich 
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 publish their own 
newspaper, T/?e Coyitinental Collegiate: their year- 
book is not 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.

Traditions 

Maryland, because of its long history, is steeped 
in time-honored traditions worthy of one of the 
oldest universities in the United States. Students 
come and go, but traditions live on, an integral 
part of the college life of e\erv person associated 
with the Uni\ersity of Maryland. . . . 

The Chapel bells that chime "Maryland, My 
Maryland" every hour on the hour. . . . 

The football season, during which studies express 
their enthusiasm in pep rallies, house decorations, 
fraternity parties, the frosh-sophomore tug-of-war 
o\er Paint Branch Creek, and the crowning of a 
queen. . . . 

Testudo, the 500 poinid bronze replica of this 
state's famous Diamondback Terrapin and the 
campus mascot, now permanently stationed at the 
entrance to Byrd Stadium. . . . 

The name "Old Liners," now the title of the 
campus humor magazine, for which we can thank 
General George Washington at the Battle of Brook- 
lyn during the Revolution when he said of the 
Maryland defenders, 'the Old Line will hold.' . . . 

The Christmas pageant held after the lighting 
of a Christmas tree behind Rossborough Inn and 
the orphan party on Fraternity Row to celebrate 
the same season. . . . 



22 



The Kappa Alpha Minstrel in keeping with a 
great Southern tradition. . . . 

The spring practices for the Phi Kappa Tau 
Barber Shop q:iartet contest and Tri Belts Inter- 
fraternity Sing. . . . 

The May Day festival highlighted by the crown- 
ing of the May Queen, the tapping of outstand- 
ing junior women by Mortar Board, and a pageant 
presented to entertain the queen. . . . 

1 he annually exciting lacrosse game between 
Maryland and Johns Hopkins, one of our keenest 
ri\als. . . . 

The electioneering and campaign parades to 
solicit votes in the spring elections for student 
government and class offices. . . . 

Your first trip to the "kissing tunnel" and the 
wishing well at Rossl)orough Inn to insure love 
and luck at college. . . . 

The annual Honors and Awards Assembly held 
just before graduation in which recognition is 
gi\en to scholarship, sports, ROTC, and other 
phases of Universitv life. . . . 

Tradition, our legacy as freshmen, we bequeath 
as seniors to those who shall search here for 
knowledge next year, or ten years from now, or 
to those of an age yet unborn.

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- 
acter. 

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 surmounted on the quarterings. These 
indicate Lord Baltimore's rank in Amer- 
ica. 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, Mary- 
land and Avalon. Below the figures is the 
scroll bearing the Calvert motto: "Fatti 
Maschii Parole Femine," which means 
"Manly Deeds; Womanly Words". On 
the border encircling the seal is the 
legend: "University of Maryland . . . 1807 
. . . 1865 . . . 1920.

I am delighted to welcome you to the University of K'^aryland. 
You are beginning an important phase of your education and the record 
you mol-.e will follow you throughout your life. 

The Administratioa, Faculty and Staff are here to help you but 
we can do only a part of the job, and we can do that part only as well 
as you want it to be done. The whole job depends, in a large measure, 
upon your capacity and application. Capacity is important, but assiualng 
that most students have at least average ability, the deciding factor is 
application. The chances are very strong that you will succeed if you 
do a reasonable amount of work on a systematic basis. This is the 
student's responsibility. 

Your years at the University should be pleasant and profitable. 
The best way to achieve these aims is to decide what you want and go 
after it.

» STUDENT GOVERNMENT 



S. G. A. 

The Student Government Association, the organi- 
zation at the University of Maryland for self-gov- 
ernment, is made up of three divisions, the Execu- 
tive Council, the Men's League and Associated 
Women Students. 

The Executi\e Council is the policy-making 
group composed of fifteen members. Among the 
many duties of this organization is to appropriate 
funds from the activity fees for dances, the Uni- 
versity Theatre, student publications and other 
student activities. The Executive Council could be 
considered the liason between the faculty and the 
student body. The Executive Council meetings 
are held every Tuesday and are open to all stu- 
dents. 

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



38 



Elections 

Ever)' spring, elections for S.G.A. and class offi- 
cers are held. Primaries are held for offices for 
which three or more students are competing. Each 
candidate is required to have a 2.0 overall average. 

Freshmen class elections are held in October 
and are open to all freshmen who secure petitions 
from the S.G.A. office and have the required num- 
ber of freshman signatures prior to deadline. 



Committees 

The S.G.A. operates through committees, set up 
by the Executive Council and open to all students. 
Chairmanships are open to those who submit ap- 
plications stating their qualifications and experi- 
ence. Sub-committee chairmanships and commit- 
tee members are chosen by the chairman on the 
basis of experience. 

S.G.A. committees under the constitution are 
Ways and Means, Elections, Organization and 
Procedure and special committees, like Student

The President of the Executive Coimcil has al- 
ready named the chairman for the following com- 
mittes: Student Activities, Freshman Orientation,

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. Applica- 
tions for both of these committees will be accepted

Panhellenic Council 



President Sonia Racusin 

Vice-President Mary Baker 

Secretary Roberta Haber 

Treasurer Alice Love 

Rush Chairman Beverly Max 

Faculty Advisor Mrs. Ruth Butwell 

The Panhellenic Council, composed of representa- 
tives of the sixteen national sororities on campus, 
strives to promote close inter- sorority cooperation 
and to maintain high scholastic and social stand- 
ards. The Council formulates and enforces rules 
governing rushing, pledging, and initiation, and 
sponsors the annual Pledge Dance, Panhel "Car 



121 



Wash Day," and an Easter egg roll for orphans. 
This year, for the first time, Panhellenic Council 
is planning a weekend camping trip to acquaint 
pledges with the activities and opportunities avail- 
able on campus. Panhellenic Council works closely 
with the Associated \Vomen Students on problems 
relating to campus women and has one represen- 
tative on A^V'S executive council to present the 
views of sororitv women. 

Junior Panhellenic Council 

Junior Panhellenic Council is composed of one 
pledge from each sorority. Its purpose is to famil- 
iarize representati\es with the functions of the 
Panhellenic Council and to discuss mutual prob- 
lems and plans. Last spring Junior Panhel spon- 
sored a conference concerning the aspects of social 
life, such as etiquette and parties. 

Standard Panhellenic Rules 

Any women eligible for matriculation at the 
University of Maryland and unaffiliated with any 
National Panhellenic Fraternity is eligible for 
rushing. 

Rushing is held at the beginning of each semes- 
ter. Second semester rushing will take place in 



121 



February. Informal rushing follows the formal 
rushing periods and lasts up to a council-set date. 

There is a silence period which extends from the 
beginning of formal rushing to pledging and ap- 
plies to all sorority women and rushees. During 
this period they may not converse at any time 
other than at registered rush functions. 

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 to which the student may 
matriculate. 

Initiation of any pledge results from the com- 
pletion of fifteen credit hours in the preceding 
semester at the University of Maryland with a 2.2 
iuerage and no failures for that semester. These 
\\'()men must be students in good standing.

E\eiy 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 re- 
quired for every male student on campus, unless 
he is exempt by previous military service. Should 
a student enter as a transfer from another school 
and not have training in an ROTC unit, 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 
fourth year (basic plus advanced) training pro- 
gram, the student will become a second lieutenant 
in the U. S. Air Force Reserve. ROTC is embodied 
with a separate headquarters in the Armory. 

Colonel Robert E. Kendig is Professor of Air 
Science and commands the iniit. Over forty regu- 
lar Air Force personnel, who teach and who must 
keep detailed records on each cadet, compose Col. 
Kendig's staff.

Athletics 

Athletic competition, both intercollegiate and 
intramural, plays an important part in the college 
career of each student of the University. The vari- 
able sports program begins with the clash of hel- 
mets in Septemlier when the Terp eleven tackles 
with the nation's best, and ends when the last tape 
is broken in the track meets in May. 

Maryland's facilities are almost unique. The 
swimming pool, tennis courts, the soon- to-be-com- 
pleted golf course and the new Student Activities 
Building offer a wide selection of activities from 
^vhich the student is certain of gaining a great 
amount of satisfaction and pleasure. 

The basketball and wrestling teams literally live 
in this new Activities Building. The 12,000 seat 
structure is now the pride of the University. 

In the past five years, Maryland has gained the 
reputation of producing winning teams. All that 
is needed to maintain this enviable association of 
Maryland and success in athletics is the support 
of each and every student taking an active interest 
in sports activities.

i ^^ / / I 

Codcit Tommy Mont 

Returning to Maryland last August, Coach Jim 
I atum had the undesirable job of finding an en- 
tirely new backfield and a replacement for big 
John Ir\ine at center. 

And, find them he did, in Ail-American center 
B(^b Pellegrini and halfback Ed Vereb. Led by 
these two stars, both of whom played their best 
under pressure, the Terps went through the regu- 
lar season imdefeated and accepted an Orange 
Bowl bid to meet a great Oklahoma team. The 
Sooners ended the Terp's winning streak by a 20-6 
score, after Maryland had gained a 6-0 half-time 
ad\antage. 

For the coming season, only the names and dates 
have changed, the problems remain virtually the 
same. 

154 



Coach Tommy Mont will inherit the perplexing 
task of filling the vacancies left by the graduation 
of Pellegrini, Vereb, and a fine crop of ends led 
by Bill \\'alker. Perhaps Gene Alderton will be 
able to fill the gap at center although this is asking 
quite a bit. 

1 he backfield will be strengthened by the return 
of Tom Selep at fullback after a year's absence, 
and the dazzling breakaway running of John Mc- 
Vicker. John gave coach Mont reason to be op- 
timistic by his play in the 19-12 loss to a star- 
studded Alumni team during the Alumni-Varsity 
game in April. 

Tommy Mont has a tough job because Jim 
Tatum has produced a very impressive record, one 
which will be difficult to top. However, Mont has 
all the tools to produce a winning Maryland team.

Soccer 




Coach Dovle P. Roval 

On Xo\ ember 18 of last year, Maryland's Soccer 
team defeated \'iro;inia 3-0. This victory gave the 
I eipv the .\t!antic Coast Conference champion- 
ship and it marked the ninth straight year in which 
Coach Dovle Roval's hooters have won the soccer 
crown. The string extends back to Maryland's days 
in the Southern Conference. 

Rc.\al \\[]\ field another strong squad this year 
and might \erv well bring Maryland its tenth 
soccer crown in succession.

Wrestling 




Coach "Sully" Krouse 

The University's matmen ended a successful 1955- 
5() season completely dominating the Atlantic Coast 
Conference wrestling championships held here in 
March. Terp wrestlers won seven of a possible ten 
titles. 

Having last been beaten in conference competi- 
tion in 1950, the Terp grapplers extended to 37 
their number of consecutive conference victories. 

Roney Carroll, captain of last year's scjuad and 
the only grappler leaving through graduation, was 
the lone Terp to go undefeated. Mike Sandusky 
and John McHugh, co-captains of this season's 
team tasted defeat but once, versus Penn State and 
Navy, respectively. 

157 




Basketball 



Coach Bud Millikan 

Dumped into the second division last season by 
untimely thrashings administered by the Atlantic 
Coast Conference's "Big Four," the Maryland 
Basketball team faces an uphill and seemingly im- 
possible struggle in its efforts to surge back among 
the elite this season. Last year's team posted a 
14-10 record in a very tough conference. 

Coach Bud Millikan has lost Bob Kessler and 
John Sandbower, standout performers from last 
year's quint, and still hasn't come up with a capa- 
ble big man to do battle with the giants from 
Dixie. 

Millikan, who never has had a losing team here, 
has based his success virtually all the way on his 
team's defense. However, it is likely he will switch 

158 



to a running game to take full advantage of his 
material. 

Bob O'Brien, a brilliant outside shot, and sensa- 
tional courtman Nick Davis, will return to pace 
the Terps. Perry Moore and John Nacincik should 
improve and will see considerable action. 

An attractive schedule and plenty of room in the 
mammoth field house should build the season 
up to one that will prove interesting and possibly 
very surprising.

Track 



Coach Jim Kehoe 

Track, unknown, imcared about and undernour- 
ished until a few years ago, suddenly has emerged 
as another kingpin in Maryland athletics. The 
Terps won Atlantic Coast Conference Champion- 
ships in cross country and indoor and outdoor 
track. 

Coach Jim Kehoe saw his cindermen roar 
through its opposition with relative ease last sea- 
son, setting numerous records along the wav. Depth 
proved to be the kev factor in the drive which 
carried Maryland to all three track titles. 

Burr Grim, greatest miler in Terrapin history, 
plus formidable performers in the middle distances 
and sprints will again be on hand, as will field 
stars George Hogan, Perry Moore and Ed Cook.

Golf 



Coach 



Frank Cronin 



Maryland linksmen finished the 1955 season with 
a record of 5 wins and 9 losses; a 3-6 mark in the 
Atlantic Coast Conference Play. 

The Terps rallied to cop 3 of their last four 
matches after losing seven straight in the begin- 
ning of the season. In the last game of the year, 
the liners scored a 9-0 win over Johns Hopkins. 

In the A. C. C. Championship, the Terps wound 
up seventh, with "Wake Forest the winner. Jim 
DePiro was high man for Maryland with a 36-hole 
total of 155. Martv Parks was second at 158. 



161 



Baseball 

Coach Burton Shipley 

The Liners barely fell below .500 last year as 
Coach Burton Shipley s boys kept fighting all the 
"way. 

Despite their 11-9 lost- won record, the Terps 
plaved some fine baseball, compiling four and three 
game winning skeins in the early weeks of the 
season. The Terps record in their second year 
of Atlantic Coast Conference play was 6 wins and 
7 losses. 

The Terps lost four players to graduation; Bill 
Walker, Bob Weiss, Jim Hennessy and Gene Doane 
who have left the diamond at College Park in 
quest of bigger opponents. 




162 




Lacrosse 

Coaches Jack Faber 

Al Heag)' 
Boasting the National Lacrosse Championship and 
four Ail-Americans, the Maryland Lacrosse team 
rolled to its second successive undefeated season. 

Coached by Jack Faber and Al Heagy, the Terp 
ten ran roughshod over all opponents. The Red 
and White was led by Charlie "Wimp" Wicker, 
Jim Keating, John Simmone, and goalie Jim Kap- 
pler. 

The season was climaxed with a 10-5 win over 
Navy. For the first time in the history of Naval 
Academy, 1100 Midshipmen came over to College 
Park as moral support. Maryland was superb that 
day and the Middies would have needed all 1100 
on the field if they were to have beaten the peer- 
less Terps. 



163 



Also playing prominent roles in the Maryland 
victories were Bud AVaesche, Ernie Betz, Frank 
Tamburello and Jim Strott. 

The oflFensive-minded Terrapins will slow down 
the action this spring to counteract their losses in 
manpoAver but the switch shouldn't bother them. 
The Terp ten should be the best in the nation 
again in 1957. 

Rifle 

Coadt ^^/Sgt. Carroll Oliff 

Although Maryland's \'arsity Rifle team didn't win 
any titles this year, it has been tabbed as a season 
of "rebuilding." 

Linn Savage held up his end on the squad but 
most of the other shooters lacked actual game 
experience. 

The brightest spot on the squad and most wel- 
come addition was pert Maggie Guy, a briuiette 
sharpshooter from Detroit, Michigan. 

Tennis 

Coach Doyle Royal 

Compiling an excellent spring season of eight wins 
and four losses, was Doyle Royal's \'arsity Tennis 

164 



Team. In the confines of the Atlantic Coast Con- 
ference, the squad posted a 4-3 mark. 

HighHghted by number one singles man, junior 
Dave Freishtat, Bud Leightheiser, and Paul Ekel 
tied for the lead in singles wins, each having eight. 

Intramurals 

Maryland's Intramural Program, directed by Jim 
Kehoe, provides sports facilities for students unable 
to participate in varsity athletics. Assisted by the 
Intramural Council, made up of junior and senior 
physical education majors, Kehoe presents a diver- 
sified list of sports, divided into two programs— 
the open and fraternity leagues. 

Touch football, basketball, softball, wrestling, 
gymnastics, golf, tennis, horse shoes, track, cross- 
country, bait casting, bowling, foul shooting, table 
tennis, badminton, volleyball and weight lifting 
make up the Intramural schedule. 

Freshman Sports 

Freshman teams are sponsored in almost every 
sport at Maryland. Playing a regular schedule of 
games, the Frosh Contests attract as much attention 
as some of the \'arsity games. Individuals wishing 
to try out for a freshman team should watch the 
Diamondback for announcements of tryouts.

• SCHOOL SPIRIT 



Terrapins in number . . . Stadium crowds . . . 
car caravans to meet winning or losing team at 
National Airport . . . cursing the mud to fraternity 
brother, but enumerating virtues of a college with 
a campus to Hopkins' friend . . . too enthusiastic 
pep rallies . . . all prove "Maryland Spirit" is in 
our hearts . . . 



168 



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 with. 

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 Terrapin 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 bonfires. 

Card Sections, sponsored by the Student Activi- 
ties Committee, will be featured this year during 
both the football and basketball seasons. The sec- 
tions will be filled by farsighted rooters who ar- 
rive 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.

Cheerleaders 

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

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