Freshman Commandments 

I. Pay close attention and take full advantage of YOUR orien- 
tation activities. 

II. Stare at a fellow student's name card — that's what it's there 
for. Call him by name — he may be the fellow or girl sitting next 
to you in class some day. 

III. Keep this book while you are at Maryland. It has been 
compiled as a guide for your University life. No other similar 
publication will be issued. 

IV. If you're a transfer student and are misled by the terms 
"Freshmen Handbook" arid "Freshmen Orientation" — don't be. 
This book and orientation are designed to help all new students, 
and it in no way excludes you from our cordial welcome. 

V. Be loyal to Maryland as an institution, to its athletic teams, 
its people, policies and purposes. 

VI. Conduct yourselves in a manner which reflect credit to your- 
selves, your families, your friends, or our school. 

VII. Contribute yourself to your University community to the 
best of your ability. 

VIII. Study hard the first year and you will discover your next 
three years will be much easier once you're accustomed to study 
habits and high academic achievement. 

IX. You are in college now, so forget about your past glories in 
high school. Don't strut around campus wearing emblems or 
sweaters for high school achievement, but start all over to win 
college recognition. 

X. Get into student activities, for you can't obtain a complete 
education from courses alone. Take advantage of the numerous 
cultural and social opportunities.

Doctor of Philosophy degrees. In the same year Doctor Elkins be- 
gan teaching at the University of Texas. In 1938, he became presi-

become president of Texas Western in 1949. 

President's Message 

To the Freshman Class: 

I extend a warm welcome to the University of Maryland. This 
is the beginning of an important part of your life, and it is our 
desire to make a meaningful contribution to your happiness. The 
University's primary responsibility is to provide a favorable climate 
for intellectual growth, but the University is interested also in the 
full development of each individual. 

Here you will find a broad program of activities outside of the 
classroom which, if properly used, will afford pleasure and add to 
the development of your special talents. It is important that you 
choose wisely in order to achieve balance. 

The faculty and the administration are here to offer instruc- 
tion and guidance. It is your responsibility to take advantage of 
the opportunities which lie before you. 

I hope that your years at the University will be pleasant and

You may be wondering why we have three dates on the Uni- 
versity seal. Our history dates back to 1807 when the fifth medical 
college in the United States was established in Baltimore. Several 
years after the Medical School began, a school for law and one for 
arts and sciences were established. The colleges following were 
Dentistry, Nursing, and Pharmacy, all in Baltimore. 

The first school established in College Park was the Maryland 
Agriculture College and Model Farm in 1856. This accounts for 
the second date on our seal. This school remained private till 1920 
when the College Park and Baltimore schools joined to form the 
University of Maryland. 

From an enrollment of 731 at that time, the university has 
grown to approximately 48,000 students a year. Don't be over- 
whelmed by this number, for 10,000 of these students are on the 
College Park campus during the regular session. The remainder 
of the students are found in Baltimore schools, overseas, and in 
summer school. A third enrollment figure you may hear is 86,000 
students which includes all part-time students as well. 

Today the University of Maryland at College Park is a pro- 
gressive campus with many plans for expansion. A brand new 
Business Administration Building is now underway and soon to 
be available for your use. A new Education Building is also being 
planned for you in the very near future. The University will con- 
tinue progress right along with you within the next four years. 

Anyone who passes through College Park will find their at- 
tention drawn to the several landmarks of our campus. The most 
outstanding is the towering steeple of our University Chapel. 
From its location high up on a hill overlooking the Baltimore- 
Washington Boulevard, the chapel's chimes can be heard every 
hour. Further through the campus is our Cole Activities Building 
which seats 14,700 people, and is truly an impressive sight. The 
new Theodore McKeldin Library situated on the mall is also one 
of our outstanding buildings. Familiar to the students is the 
tunnel near South Gate which carries tradition for all lovers pass- 
ing through it. Another landmark is Fraternity Row which is 
composed of twelve fraternity and sorority Georgian styled houses 
The "row" is seen by all passing through College Park. 

Another tradition on our campus is the University's mascot, 
perpetual guardian of the south-east gate of Byrd Stadium. He is 
Testudo, a five hundred pound bronze replica of Maryland's 
diamondback terrapin, 



The official school colors for the University of Maryland are 
black and gold. It is interesting to note that these colors plus the 
red and white, our sports colors, were originally on coats of arms 
belonging to the first families settling Maryland. The colors were 
then taken for our state flag. In accord, the University has ac- 
quired them. 




You will experience a special chill of excitement as you wit- 
ness the opening kick-off of your first football season at Maryland. 
The gaity, the tenseness, the cheers, the band, will all make you 
proud to be a "Terp", win or lose. School spirit rallies to its peak 
in the beginning of this season as exciting events are anticipated. 
Pep rallies, home games, an away week end, and most of all Home- 
coming, highlight the fall months. 

As alumnae and collegiates turn out for Homecoming, girls' 
dormitories and sororities contest for house decoration trophies, 
while the men's dormitories and fraternities flood the stadium with 
an array of floats. Climaxing this day are the crowning of Home- 
coming Queen, and a dance featuring a big name band. So ends 
another season, but its memories will linger. 


Campus Chest 

Campus Chest, a student committee overseeing campus charity 
contributions and allocating funds to various foreign, domestic, 
and student charities, is active many times a year raising money. 
The funds are received from such activities as the Sophomore 
Carnival, Donkey Basketball Game, Angel Flight Talent Show, 
Flying Follies, and the Alpha Phi Omega Ugly Man Contest. Each 
candidate in the contest receives one vote for each penny contri- 
buted to him. 

Campus Elections 

Maryland students are represented by two political parties. 
Old Line and Free State, which battle for campus offices each 
spring. Similar to national elections, each political party holds a 
nominating convention, and campaigning takes place through vot- 
ing day. Students elect all class, AWS, Men's League and Student 
Government offices. 

Interfraternity Sing 

Each spring Delta Delta Delta sorority sponsors the Interfra- 
ternity Sing, a hilghlight of Greek Week. It is held in Ritchie 
Coliseum, admission is free, and everyone is welcome. Fraternities 
and sororities compete with each other and trophies are given to 
the top places in both divisions. Several honors are presented at 
this event which include the Morty Cohen Award, the Fraternity 
Man of the Year, the Hillock Award, and the tapping of Diamond 
and Kalegethos members. 

Harmony Hall 

In the fall of every year. Phi Kappa Tau fraternity presents 
Harmony Hall. Various Greek organizations enter quartets and 
the judging is done by the Society for the Advancement of Barber- 
shop Singing. Besides receiving trophies, the top three winning 
male and female groups acquire points toward fraternity and soror- 
ity of the year awards. Tapping for Diamond and Kalegethos also 
takes place at this event. 

Kappa Alpha Minstrel 

A Cotton Picker's Minstrel is annually presented by Kappa 
Alpha fraternity. The show is complete with song, dance, grease 
paint and end men. As a production of the old South on stage, the 
Minstrel is one of Maryland's oldest traditions. 

Christmas Evenf-s 

As the winter holiday season approaches, various campus reli- 
gious groups make their preparations. The chapel bells ring out 
Christmas carols every hour as part of the season's festivity. Christ- 
mas parties, carroling and the chapel choir's presentation of the 
"Messiah" are traditional. Chanukah celebrations are also planned 
with Hillel featuring a social. 

Blood Drive 

Two days of the fall and spring are set aside for an Annual 
Red Cross Blood Drive sponsored by AOPi Sorority and TEP Fra- 
ternity. Students give blood in Cole Activities Building, and re- 
freshments are served afterwards. Trophies are awarded to the 
largest group donors. 

Spring Tapping 

Spring is a very busy time for honoring outstanding students. 
At the Interfraternity Sing, Diamond, the sorority honorary, and 
Kalegethos, the fraternity honorary, tap for leaders in their fields. 
Featured at the May Day Festival is Mortar Board's tapping of 
junior and senior women excelling in scholarship, campus service 
and leadership. Omicron Delta Kappa, and Phi Kappa Phi, the 
senior scholarship honorary, and other honoraries also tap during 
the spring months. 

Class Events 

Soon after you arrive on campus, you will be swept up in 
freshman elections. Later on in the year is Freshman Day which 
is packed full of entertainment and games. 

The sophomore class sponsors a carnival. Every residence 
has an opportunity to enter a booth and the money raised is given 
to Campus Chest. Concessions and original shows spotlight this 

Juniors plan a donkey basketball game at which campus lead- 
ers compete against one another. This event also helps to raise 
money for Campus Chest. Each class has a dance, but one of the 
biggest each year is the Junior Prom. At this time Miss Maryland 
is crowned. In the Spring, junior women sponsor May Day. 

The senior class climaxes their college life with a Senior 
Prom and "Senior Class Presents", a variety show. 


Organization Event's 

Throughout the year, the campus is active with events spon- 
sored by our many organizations. University Theater is especially 
busy giving several productions. Angel Flight presents a Fashion 
Show and Talent Show, the Modern Dance Club gives a concert, 
Hillel has a skit night. Gymkhana performs, and the Aqualiners 
perform a water ballet. Many dances are planned such as the 
Military Ball, Panhellenic Pledge Dance, the Interfraternity Ball, 
and the International Fiesta. Associated Women Students present 
a Bridal Fair, Campus Chest sponsors its charity drives and the 
many Greek houses vie for the trophies in musical competition. 

May Day 

Twenty years ago our Dean of Women, Adele Stamp, started 
the tradition of a May Day festival. Each year since then. May 
Day has honored the outstanding women on campus. A queen is 
selected by junior women on the basis of her scholarship, citizen- 
ship, and service to the university. The pageant features a may 
pole dance done by outstanding sophomores and junior women, 
and the tapping of Mortar Board. It is an exciting and memorable 
event, especially for those honored. 

Greek Week 

During May of each year fraternities and sororities unite for 
participation in Greek Week. This week is highlighted with 
Chariot Races, Bike Races, a Treasure Hunt, the Interfraternity 
Sing, a Dixieland Band Concert. This past year as a climax, the 
Interfraternity Council sponsored a boat ride on the Potomac, at 
which the King and Queen of Greeks were crowned. 

Dorm Event's 

The AWS Dormitory Council and Men's League Resident 
Men's Association help arrange an interesting program for the 
"dorm" residents. Good citizenship is promoted, awards are pre- 
sented to outstanding students, intramural teams are organized, 
and a social calendar is planned.

The Suburban Trust Company in College Park and the Citi- 
zens Bank of Maryland in Riverdale provide banking facilities for 
the students and student organizations. 

One of your first responsibilities at Maryland will be to buy 
and maintain a supply of textbooks and supplies. For the con- 
venience of students, the University maintains a Students' Supply 
Store, located in the basement of the Student Union, where you 
may obtain at reasonable prices new or used textbooks, classroom 
materials and equipment. This store is operated on a basis of 
furnishing students needed books and supplies at as low cost as 
practical, and profits, if any, go for promoting general student 
welfare. Also, a local bookstore in College Park provides used and 
new textbooks, and the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity sells 
used textbooks which are consigned to them by students. 

You should not buy textbooks until you have official notifi- 
cation of the approved edition of the book being used in a course. 
The stores have the approved list. Write your name and address 
on the fly leaf of each book. This will assist in the return of books 
mislaid and prevent the sale of books by other than you, the 
owner. After the first ten days it will not lower the re-sale value. 

Plan to accumulate a personal library while in college by con- 
sidering carefully before selling books that might be needed later 
in your career and home. 

In order to aid students in getting the most from their college 
years, the University maintains the Counseling Center. After pay- 
ment of the $5.00 Test and Advisory fee during registration, any un- 
dergraduate student is eligible to receive assistance. 

The Counseling Center is staffed by a well trained group of 
counseling psychologists who are prepared to aid students with 
problems of social and emotional adjustment, uncertainty about 
future plans, or defiency in reading or study ability. 

As part of its program, the Center operates a Reading and 
Study Skills Laboratory to aid students in reading and studying 
effectively. This laboratory runs on a six week cycle, with two 
cycles operated each semester. 




The Foreign Student Adviser is concerned with helping stu- 
dents from abroad become accustomed to University and commu- 
nity life. He is prepared to assist foreign students in solving prob- 
lems relating to registration, off campus housing, employment op- 
portunities and University and immigration regulations. As well 
as aquaint them with opportunities for social and cultural exper- 
ience in the community. 

The office of the Foreign Student Adviser is located in the 
North Administration Building. 

i. D. CARD 

Look your best when you get your picture taken during your 
first registration, for it will stay with you throughout your years 
at Maryland. The student identification card identifies you for 
attendance at athletic events and student activities. Use of the 
library requires identification. You'll also find your ID card useful 
for business transactions. 

If the card is lost, report it immediately to the office of the 
Dean of Men. Arrangements for securing a new card, for which 
a fee will be charged, can be made at that time. 



The University Infirmary is open to all students for the treat- 
ment of minor injuries and illnesses. A registered nurse in on 
duty 24 hours a day and a doctor is on call at all hours for 
emergency treatment. 

Undergraduates, after the payment of a $5.00 Health Service 
fee, may be cared for in the Infirmary. All illnesses of a serious 
nature are transferred to hospitals, and parents are notified of 
such action. 

During the regular school year physician's hours are: 

Monday - Friday 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. 

2:00 P. M. to 5:00 P.M. 

Saturday 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon 

Sunday and Holidays - 11:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon 



The campus center for study, research and recreational read- 
ing is the recently opened McKeldin Library. The Library has 
four main floors and three mezzanines, light reading rooms and 
many special rooms. The book stacks are open to all students, as 
are the typing booths, study rooms, piano rooms and browsing 

Students check books in and out at the loan desk upon pre- 
sentation of the University "ID" card, which serves as a library 
card. Book depositories are also located at the front entrance in 
order for books to be returned at any time. 

During the regular school year the Library hours are: 
:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. 
:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. 
:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. 

A Library Handbook is available at the Student Book Store 
which completely explains all library procedures.

Service Building. Any administrative office on the campus is also 
authorized to receive lost and found articles, and they will in turn 
forward them to the Campus Police. Individuals turning in articles 
which are found should insist upon receiving a receipt for the 
article. Students who have lost articles are urged to come to the 
Campus Police office and reclaim any article which they can prop- 
erly identify as their own. Articles turned over to the Campus 
Police which are unclaimed after 90 days will be disposed of. 


As a new student, the first office with which you had contact 
was the Admissions Office. If you are concerned with new admis- 
sion, transfer of credits, reinstatement or readmission, the Ad- 
missions staff is the one to see. Both of these offices are open daily 
in North Administration Building. 

Your precious secrets, namely your official educational record 
at the University, are maintained by the Office of the Registrar. 
These records (courses taken, credits granted, and grades earned) 
are confidential and are available to agencies outside of the Uni- 
versity only with the student's permission. The Office computes 
grade averages by classes, Greek and dorms for standings, and 
honors. In addition, attendance records for GI Bill students and 
foreign students are maintained. Speaking of GI's, each male under 
graduate student who is subject to draft regulations may request 
the Registrar to send his local draft board the forms indicating 
his rank in class each year. 



The University Placement Service offers a number of oppor- 
tunities related to the student's present and future employment 
needs. One of these is Career Week which gives direct informa- 
tion on employment related to each of the fields. Another is the 
Summer Job Conference, at which employers offer summer jobs 
to students. 

You are invited to have a conference with the Placement 
Director or your department's faculty placement representative 
either in your sophomore or junior year. 

You are given the most assistance in your senior year. Begin- 
ing with guidance in setting up a direct job getting campaign 
through the use of the Placement Library, the service will then 
bring 300 company visitors on campus recruiting graduating sen- 
iors, and for those who do not secure positions through this pro- 
cess, a register is established. Those on the register are notified 
of job leads in their chosen field that come by mail or telephone. 

The Placement Service Director's office is located in Room 
225, North Adminsitration Building, Many of the activities, such 
as Career Week are conducted by student committees. Mr. Lewis 
Knebel is the Director and Mr. Thomas Morrissey is student 


Keep track of your PO box number and combination. Univer- 
sity correspondence and mail from friends are put in the boxes 
located in the Student Union basement. You may send uninsured 
parcel post; and buy stamps, stamped envelops, and post cards at 
the window which is open from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M., Monday through 
Friday; 9 A.M. to 12 P.M., Saturdays; and closed Sundays. Official 
student organizations may obtain permission to stuff the boxes for 
campus circulation. 


Full information and application forms regarding scholarship 
aid or student loans may be obtained in Room 209, North Ad- 
ministration Building. The National Education Loan Program is 
now available to students attending the University of Maryland 
as well as incoming freshmen. A student must maintain a certain 
average and also show financial need. 


It is the policy of the University to assist you in suplementing 
the cost of your education by helping you obtain part-time em- 

There are three general types of part-time employment for 
students; workship, part-time employment on campus and part- 
time employment off campus. Students who have workships per- 
form a prescribed amount of work and receive in return their room 
and board, board, or room. The majority of the workships are in 
the Dining Hall. Students who have part-time work start at 75c an 
hour and after the student has gained experience, his rate of pay 
may be increased. These jobs are in offices, laboratories, the 
library, the Student Union, Dairy Salesroom, the experimental 
farm, etc. If you have special skills, such as stenographic, drafting, 
etc., you are paid at a higher rate of pay. 

The part-time jobs can be further divided into those that 
continue throughout the year and temporary work, as at registra- 
tion, commencement, and parking attendants at special events. 
Some students obtain jobs off campus in local business establish- 
ments or with concerns near their home. A file of off-campus jobs 
is kept in the Student Employment Office. 

Students interested in employment should apply at the Stu- 
dent Employment Office, which is located in the Office of the 
Dean of Men in the North Administration Building. Women who 
are interested in workships and baby sitting positions should apply 
at the Office of the Dean of Women. 


The University switchboard connects to every dormitory. 
Calls from dorm phones to other dorm phones may be made 
until 4:00 P.M. 

The switchboard telephone hours are 

00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. 
00 A.M. to 10:30 P.M. 
00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. 


Tuesday - Thursday 8: 

Friday - Sunday 

Because of the large number of telephone calls, students are 
asked to limit their calls to 5 minutes. After closing hours, emer- 
gency calls are transmitted to the dorms by the Campus Police. 

Each dormitory is equipped with pay-telephones where stu- 
dents make out going calls. Telegrams are handled by extension 
350 of the University switchboard located in Skinner Building. 


Greyhound's Baltimore-Washington buses leave College Park 
every half hour and go to the Washington, D. C. terminal at 
1110 New York Ave., N.W. Trailways has a terminal in Washing- 
ton at 1201 New York Ave., N.W. Suburban Transit buses go, 
via University Blvd., to Silver Spring every half hour. Other local 
transportation, in and around the area of College Park, are the 
Capitol Transit Buses, the College Park, and Mt. Ranier lines. 
Stops are located on campus in front of Student Union. 

All major east coast airlines and many small ones serve the 
Washington National Airport in Virginia. The Airport can be 
reached by crossing Memorial Bridge and continuing out Route 
350. Ticket offices are located in the Suburban Trust Company 
buildings in College Park and in Washington. Baltimore's Friend- 
ship International Airport can be reached by following the signs 
on the Baltimore- Washington Parkway. 

B. & O., C. & O., R. F. 8c P., Pennsylvania, Southern, Atlantic 
Coast, Seabord, Norfolk, and Western trains serve directly and 
indirectly into Union Station in Washington. The phone number 
is Executive 3-7900. 


The Office of Intermediate Registration offers several services 
to aid students who have had, or expect to have trouble with their 
studies. After payment of a special guidance fee of $15.00 a stu- 
dent is eligible for any service offered by the Office of Intermedi- 
ate Registration. 

One credit hour courses are offered in effective study methods 
and in reading improvement. In addition, tutoring services geared 
to the needs of the individual are offered in English and Mathema- 
tics. These tutoring sessions are arranged at the convenience of 
the student and the tutor. 


Looking up a certain phone number or address? The annual 
Student Directory will make your task a simpler one. The Regis- 
trar's Office prints this directory each Fall, and also includes each 
student's college and classification. Names and addresses of each 
College Park faculty and staff member, campus extensions, iuid 
leaders of student groups are found in the front section of the 



You want your instructor to know you are in class to learn, 
and that you have respect for him or her as a teacher and as a 
human being. How do you get this across? You can't tell him in 
words, but you can show him in a dozen ways. 

Attitude: You can look alert, interested, cheerful and as if you 
cared about what was going on. You can't afford to sleep in class 
and you can't afford to slouch in your chair as if you were asleep. 

Appearance: You can be neat and clean both as to your person and 
clothes. This doesn't mean that you have to wear dress-up clothes. 
It does mean that you are scrubbed, even if you have just come 
from a greasy lab job, and that your clothes are clean and casual, 
not soiled and sloppy. It's no compliment to any instructor to 
appear otherwise and you will have to expect to be judged accord- 
ing to your just desserts on this score. 

Attention: Attention again implies alertness to what the instructor 
is presenting and keeping your mind on what he is saying. Your 
face will show it if your mind is far away. And you can't pay at- 
tention to the instructor and study some other subject, write letters 
or knit. 

Courtesy: You wouldn't talk when someone else is talking in ordi- 
nary conversation. The same rule holds in the classroom. Re- 
member too that a whisper carries and that you probably can be 
heard both by the instructor and your classmates even when you 
don't intend to be. 

Tardiness: This brings up the subject of tardiness. You know how 
you feel about anyone who is late to an appointment with you. 
Don't be late if you can possibly avoid it. But if you are late, slip 
into the class as quietly as you can. Drop down into the first va- 
cant seat. Avoid disturbing the whole class by walking across in 
front of the instructor and the class to get to your own seat. Apol- 
ogize to the instructor after class for being tardy and make sure 
then that he knows where you sat so you won't be counted absent. 

Size up the situation: You can judge the atmosphere of the class. 
In most classes you will be encouraged to ask questions, if you 
don't understand, or to participate in discussion. This will help 
you learn. Usually you will need to be recognized by the instruc- 
tor before speaking. Remember that other students need to parti- 
cipate too, so don't monopolize the time. Think through your 
question before you raise it. A good question helps the whole 
class. A poor one wastes the time of many people. As long as 
you are attending class, don't leave before it's over. The instruc- 

tor, not the bell, dismisses class. Don't put on your coat and gather 
up your books until you are dismissed — you can't afford to look 
too eager to leave. 

Individual Interview. In an individual interview with your in- 
structor, your academic adviser, the head of your school or any 
staff member, for that matter, you stand out as a person even more 
than you do in class. The staff member needs to feel your respect 
for him as a person as much as you need to feel welcome and com- 
fortable with him. Remember that in his office the staff member 
calls the tune. You need to be alert and responsive to every cue, so 
you'll know what that tune is. As host in his own office the staff 
member will invite you to sit down and indicate where. Wait to 
be invited. If you may smoke, he will invite you to do so. You 
again should wait to be invited. Don't overstay your welcome. 
The staff member might enjoy visiting indefinitely with you, but 
he probably is operating on a tight schedule. If you are alert 
you'll catch a sign of some kind that says clearly that the inter- 
view needs to be brought to a close. Do thank the staff member 
for his time and help — and mean it when you say it. 

There is one important way that we can return these favors 
and that is to make a mental note of each of our professor's correct 
titles and use them. There is nothing more insulting than to call 
a Doctor, Mister. Deans justly expect the students to rise when 
they enter a room. 


Not a great deal can be said that will mean much to you until 
you have rubbed elbows with other students and have discovered 
the college way of life. A few hints, though, may help you to fit 
easily and comfortably into the University scene. 

First of all, Maryland is a friendly place and you can do your 
bit in making it so. Don't stand on too much ceremony as far as 
making friends is concerned. Others, more shy than you, will ap- 
preciate your taking the initiative in speaking and being friendly. 
Courtesy and thoughtfulness in the use of common facilities, 
whether in your residence or on campus, always help to make 
you better liked by others. Respecting your fellow student's needs 
for quiet while studying indicates a thoughful person rather than 
a selfish one. 

Nothing detracts more from a girl's appearance than to see 


her walking across campus smoking a cigarette. Besides it is 
against the rules. 

Speaking of walking across campus, you'll be doing quite a bit 
of that and you'll be looking for shortcuts. However, try not to 
trample the grass too much. The grounds are one of the first 
things that impress you as you drive through campus, so try to 
keep them in a relatively good condition. 

You boys should make a mental note of the fact that it's a 
good idea to be on your best behavior when you are visiting in a 
girls' dorm or a sorority house. Remember that smoking is pro- 
hibited in the lobby of the dorms. 


Never lose any sleep over the right clothes to wear. For wom- 
en, a wardrobe of straight skirts, sweaters, blouses, sheath dresses 
and a few cocktail dresses will fulfill the purpose. A short walking 
coat is best for classes. 

One of the biggest events last year was the adoption of the 
rule concerning burmudas. Now women are permitted to wear 
them on Saturday except in University buildings. They may be 
worn to the bookstore in the Student Union. Of course, men are 


allowed to wear them on weekdays also. It is very important that 
coeds don't violate this rule, since it could easily be withdrawn. 

Men should keep in mind that this isn't a "cow college," so 
dungarees don't go. We like to see collegiatte khakis, wool slacks, 
and perhaps even a coat and tie which do alot to improve class- 
room atmosphere. Of course, if you're going to all this trouble, it 
would be a little silly to ruin it by slouching in your chair or 
casually draping your legs over the chair in front. 


Like many Maryland students, you will probably want to take 
some time out from studying to go out for a good time. 

On campus, the Student Union, opening at 7 a.m. and closing 
at 10 p.m., is always a good bet. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sun- 
day some top rate movies are featured at student prices. For TV 
fans the televisions, including a colored one, are available. Also, 
the Hi-Fi and Stereo rooms are usually open. For anyone interested 
in a little more strenuous exercise, the billiard room is in the 

If you feel the need for nourishment, the lunch room is open 
from 8 to 4 o'clock. This is a real good place to socialize and show 
off your dancing talent. The tables can be pushed back at 4 p.m. 
The jukebox will most likely be busy. 

If the weather permits, the tennis courts, are open. One is lo- 
cated between Cole Activities Building and B parking lot and the 
other behind Preinkert Fieldhouse. If you're a swimming enthusi- 
ast, there is coed swimming at Cole Activities Building. On 
Wednesday night, the Preinkert pool is open to women. The 
Preinkert tennis courts are open only to women during the day, 
but on nights and weekends it is available for the men also. 

A short walk to the Baltimore Boulevard, and you can try your 
skill at bowling. For those lucky enough to have a car, you can 
visit the Hyattsville moviehouse or one of the local movie theaters. 

Miniature Golf is always a lot of fun and Green Meadows 
has a popular course. For more experienced golfers, Maryland 
Golf Course and Mai7land Driving Range are behind the stadium. 

In addition to the athletic recreational activities in and 
around College Park, several campus organizations, classes, etc. 
provide recreational evenings throughout the year. 


Those of you who live in the dormitories must have your 
meals at the University Dining Hall, where meals are served at 
reasonable cost. Other students may make arrangements to board 
by the semester at the Dining Hall. If you live off-campus, it is 
possible to get your lunch at the University cafeteria located on 
the ground floor of the Dining Hall. 

Rules and Regulations 

Dress: All students should be properly dressed to come into 
the Dining Hall, certain rides must be followed and certain stand- 
ards of behavior must be maintained. All students are expected 
not to wear shorts, halters, bermudas, slacks, and blue jeans. No 
sports clothes covered by rain coats or top coats are to be worn in 
the Dining Hall. Men should wear coats and ties to Sunday dinner. 

Food: Under no circumstances should any food or any other 
property of the Dining Hall be taken out. 

Meal cards: It is required that whenever a supervisor or other 
official of the Dining Hall requests your Dining Hall card, it must 
be shown to him at once. Your dining hall card is not transferable. 
Do not lend your card to anyone for any reason. Improper use of 
the Dining Hall card makes a student liable to disciplinary action. 
Any Dining Hall card lost or misplaced must be reported to the 
supervisor on duty immediately. 

Behavior: It is improper, inconsiderate, and very confusing to 
break into line before your proper turn.

Your welcome to the University of Maryland wouldn't be com- 
plete without a quick look at your new campus home. Your next 
few short years will revolve around either your dormitory home, a 
fraternity or sorority house, or, if you are a commutor, your 
campus gathering spots. 

In one of the Georgian style buidings found sprinkled around 
the campus, you will find your dormitory home. Here you will 
hang your hat, your clothes, the picture of your One-and-Only, 
your calendar, or a program from the latest University Theater 
production. Here you will study, sleep, laugh, cry, sing, and hold 
"bull sessions." 

But along with studying in the dorm, you will participate in 
many social functions. Several times each year, the girls' and boys' 
dorms are the scenes of evening desserts. Members of each of the 
dormitories participating gather in the recreation rooms of a dorm 
for two hours of light refreshments and dancing . . . just socializ- 
ing in general. 

The rec room of the girls' dorms and some of the boys' dorms 
supplies you with cokes to keep you awake at night, candy and 
cookies for late snacks, television for study breads, telephones, a 
ping-pong table for evening enjoyment, and a kitchen where you 
can create your own delicacies. 

Your room will include single beds, dressers, a desk, closets, 
chairs,and lamps. Your ingenuity will create a room that reflects 
your own personality. Put personal touches into it by choosing 
curtains, bedspreads, rugs, dresser scarfs that suit your tastes . . . 
and don't forget a bulletin board for your collectors' items. An 
extra table, bookcase, and lamp add warmth to the room; girls 
might want to bring a hairdryer, and iron (for use in the laundry 
room) , shoe racks, a radio, clock, but no hotplates please! 



If after spending a year "on the hill," you may find your in- 
terests turning toward a certain fraternity or sorority. You will 
find life in a Greek House diversified and interesting. 

Fraternity row, across Route 1 from the main campus, houses 
six fraternities and five sororities; College Avenue, Princeton Ave- 
nue, Norwich Road, Knox Road, serve as addresses for the remain- 
ing Greek homes. 

Living with a group of people your own age, people who be- 
come as close as your sisters in a sorority or brothers in a frater- 
nity, creates a intimate and homelike atmosphere. Your house 
provides many advantages: meals served in a family style, rugs 
covering the floors, and comfortable chairs ready for your comfort. 

Sleeping accommodations vary from house to house. You may 
have a room equipped with a desk, chest, and bed, or you may 
have a room which contains only desks, chests, bookcases, and your 
personal belongings. In this latter situation, the dormitory system 
is used; on the third floor, one huge room contains nothing but 
beds. This is convenient when you want nothing but peace and 
quiet when you retire. 

On Friday and Saturday nights, fraternity housese are the 
scenes of gala parties . . . pajama parties. South Sea Island parties, 
Parisian parties, and impromptu parties. 

Although living in a Greek house is a change from dormitory 
life, you will find it an unusual and worthwhile experience. 


Our campus daydodgers have not been left out of the hustle 
and bustle, of campus living. The Student Union is the campus 
home of the many, many students who daily make their way to the 
Maryland grounds for classes. Here these people will find many 
conveniences set up for their comfort: a regular cafeteria provides 
needed nourishment for lunches or after class snacks; the lounge of 
the SU is equipped with comfortable chairs, a television set (color, 
that is) , and a host of students with whom you will become well 
acquainted in the next few years. The Student Union also houses 
a room containing a piano, a room containing art works which are 
displayed throughout the year, and rooms in which you can study. 

Many commutors spend some of their study time in the new 
McKeldin Libfary. This library supplies a wealth of knowledge, 
large rooms in which to study, and small cubicles where you can 
study in solitude if you prefer. 

Whether you live in a dormitory on campus, a Greek house 
in College Park, or at home, enjoying only your daytime hours at 
the University of Maryland, your life will be as pleasant as you 
make it. Study hard, but have fun. 



The various halls in the dorms contain phones with a certain 
number extension. If you live in the dorms and wish to contact 
someone whose extension you know, ask the operator for the num- 
ber of the extension you want. To contact the University exten- 
sions from off campus, dial Warfield (WA.) 7-3800, ask for the 
section of the campus you want such as Womens' Dorms, Mens' 
Dorms, Administration Office, etc., then ask for the number of the 
extension you wish to contact. 

The following are extension numbers of dormitory main desk

The Student Government Association is fashioned after our 
national government having all three branches and a similar divi- 
sion of powers. The fourteen SGA Cabinet officers include the 
Student Body President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, 
Men's League President, Associated Women Students' President, 
all four class presidents, both the Independent Men's Representa- 
tive and the Independent Women's Representative, the Fraternity 
Representative, and the Sorority Representative. These officers are 
elected in the spring semester. The Cabinet acts on bills originat- 
ing in the legislature in much the same way as does the President 
of the United States. Bills can be vetoed, pocketed, passed, or 
amended. Of course the Cabinet may originate bills which then go 
to the legislature. 

The legislature is composed of nine seniors, eight juniors, 
seven sophomores, six freshmen and the Vice President of SGA 
who is the Speaker. The legislators elect an Assistant Speaker and 
a Secretary at their first meeting. Then they begin work on mo- 
tions originating from the floor and on recommendations sent to 
them by their committees such as the Finance Committee. Both 
the legislature and the executive council meet on Tuesday in the 
Student Union Building. The legislature meets at 3:00 p.m.; 
whereas, the Council meets at 7:00 p.m. Visitors are always wel- 
come and may present petitions or speeches from the floor. 

The SGA committees function apart from the Executice Coun- 
cil but are responsible to it with reports made when each respec- 
tive activity is in the planning stage. What committees are there? 

FINANCE COMMITTEE - This group plans the yearly budget 
from the twelve dollar student activity fee paid to the university 
during registration. Those students entering in February are only 
charged a fee for the current semester. The finance Committee 
appropriates funds for every organization that is recognized as a 
student activity by the Committee on Student Life and Activities 
of the faculty. Much of the financial work presented on the floor 
of the legislature is previewed by this committee. The SGA Treas- 
urer is automatically the chairman of the Finance Committee. 

ELECTION BOARD — Men's League President is the chairman 
of the Election Board which controls the balloting at the polls, 
the complaints registered against illegal practices of candidates 
and the IBM counting of ballots.

throughout the year, certain deadlines are imposed. Reminders 
that applications are being accepted and notifications of the dead- 
line appear in the Diamondback before the committee is selected. 

The judicial branch of SGA is composed of a Central Student 
Court and minor courts. The six justices and the Chief Justice are 
selected from Mortar Board and Omicron Delta Kappa members 
or nominees. These justices have jurisdiction over appealed cases 


and all disciplinary cases recommended to it. The decision of this 
court is always final with no right to appeal. The three faculty 
advisors may request the court to recess. 

Since the SGA Constitution was new as of 1958, the govern- 
ment is still undergoing growing pains. However, the well-worded 
preamble to the new Constitution points to the goal toward which 
it is directed: "We, the students of the University of Maryland, in 
order to encourage democratic thought and action, offer training 
in the application of our cherished principles of self-government. 


secure to ourselves the right to discuss and formulate our owp 
policies, demonstrate our concern for and promote the interest of 
our alma mater, and provide the fullest degree of self-government 
•possible under the jurisdiction of the University's administrative 
personnel and governing bodies and under the constitution and 
laws of the State of Maryland and of the United States of America, 
do hereby ordain and establish, under God, this Constitution to 
be the fundamental law governing ourselves and our successors, 
now and hereafter, so long as it shall stand the test of time and 
respond to our need for self-government." 


AWS is YOU — daydodger, independent or sorority woman! 
The Associated Women Students is the governing body for women 
students at the University of Maryland. On a national level our 
AWS is an active affiliate of the Intercollegiate Association of 
Women Students. AWS sets up and enforces standards of conduct 
and residence rules, sponsors cultural and social activities and 
coordinates the women's activities on campus. 

How can you participate? Throughout the year the Cultural, 
Academic, Social, Publicity, and Dormitory Big Sister standing 
committee function actively. Those AWS "special" events such as 
the Christmas Pageant, Bridal Fair, Orphans' Party and Summer 
Job Forum also draw campus-wide attention. What work do these 
committees do? 

gram is most active in the fall to help entering women students get 
closely acquainted with girls living in the dorms. 
CHRISTMAS PAGEANT - This performance is presented on 
the steps of the chapel in gaily colored costumes signifying the 
scene of the three wise men at Bethlehem. 

BRIDAL FAIR — This spring show displays everything the brides 
need from housewares to diamond rings. Caterer, silver, china, 
crystal, men's wear, luggage and photography booths boarder the 
armory walls. A fashion show highlights the evening. 
ORPHANS' PARTY — The women on campus entertain orphans 
with toys and treats. 

SUMMER JOB FORUM — Representatives from area companies 
J;ell of job openings for interested and qualified women students. 

If you are interested in working on these conmiittees or find- 
ing out more about AWS you may contact Harriet Husted, AWS 
President, or Miss Billings, the Assistant Dean of Women and 
advisor to AWS. Applications for committees are always available 
in Room 113 of the Student Union Building. 

The AWS Executive Council is the main policy-making body. 
It is composed of the President, 1st and 2nd Vice Presidents, Sec- 
retary, Treasurer, representatives from each class council, and 
standing committee chairmen. Its duties are to coordinate the 
activities of the Doraiitory Council, which is concerned with the 
problems of the dormitory living; the Sorority Council which deals 
with the problems of sorority living; the Judicial Board, the gov- 


erning board for campus women's regulations; and the Academic 
Board, resp>onsible for encouraging high standards and stimulating 
intellectual activity. Each dormitory and sorority has its own 
governing body with representatives to the Dormitory and Sorority 
Councils, thus making AWS a truly representative government ex- 
tending into many phases of the Maryland coed's life. 


"We, the male students of the University of Maryland, in 
order to promote the educational, cultural, social, and athletic 
welfare and interest of the men of the University, and to offer the 
men of the University a chance to perpetuate the mutual benefits 
derived from college life and a chance to present their problems 
and to assist in their solution, do hereby establish this constitution 
of the Men's League of the University of Maryland." 

So reads the preamble to the Men's League Constitution. 
Though it sounds good, the problem is how to fulfill the objec- 
tives which we have chosen, and how to achieve the goals we have 
set before us. What is educational, cultural, social and athletic 
welfare; and what are the mutual benefits and problems? The 
first consideration to make is that you, and each undergraduate 
male student here at Maryland, is a member of the Men's League. 

Each year the Men's League sponsors a number of events for 
the benefit of the male student body. Summer Job Forums, No 
Shave Week, and Freshmen Information Assemblies are a few of 
the annual programs of the Men's League. The Resident Men's 
Association also comes under the Men's League. To handle the 
problems that such undertakings create, the Student Government 
has been fit to establish the Men's League Executive Council. 

The Executive Council meets weekly to discuss and plan the 
programs to be presented. The representatives to the Executive 
Council are elected by the student boby-at-large in the annual 
general elections. You, the male student, select these representa- 
tives, or you may even aspire to be one. Suggestions from the In- 
terfratemity Council; the Resident Men's Association; the fresh- 
man, sophomore, junior and senior classes; the Student Govern- 
ment Association; Greeks and independents; residents and com- 
muters are brough to the attention of the Executive Council. Any 
action relevant to the undergraduate male student is considered 
by the Executive Council. The Men's League Executive Council 
also represents the interests of the male student on such commit- 
tees as Campus Improvements, Student Life and Dining Hall Im- 
prevements. For further interests of the students, the Men's League 
also has established the Student Court which is subordinate to the 
Central Student Court. 

The Men's League Student Court reviews, regulates and exerts 
jurisdiction concerning violations of men's rules as set forth by the 
Student Government Constitution or the Administration. Instances 
of violations may be referred directly to the Men's League Student 


Association. The Men's League Student Court passes its findings 
and recommendations on to the Administration and acts as the 
enforcement body for the action taken. 

In the spring semester of every year, the Men's League holds 
its Leadership Banquet. At this time awards and recognitions are 
given to the outstanding male students and teachers. At this time 
student leaders in the field of politics, academics and service are 
presented and recognized for their outstanding contributions in 
the interest and welfare of the student body. 

The Men's League is proud to boast that this year has seen 
the marked improvement in the quantity, quality and diversity of 
the Dining Hall menu, and that the Men's League was not with- 
out influence in the efforts to accomplish this program. Next year 
further improvements are planned, and the Men's League will con- 
tinue to strive toward the accomplishment of these goals. Next 
year the Men's League anticipates awarding the top team in cam- 
pus intramurals, in all phases of athletics, after a play-off between 
the top two Open League teams and the top two Fraternity 
League teams. 

The Job Conferences, No Shave Week and Freshman Assem- 
blies will be held again nevt year as they have in the past. Also 
proposed for next year are many new programs such as; AWS- 
Men's League Athletic Day, a Men's League Block Party, a Men's 
League Convocation, and an Independent Week modeled along 
the same lines as Greek Week. 

The Men's League is a part of the Student Government Asso- 
ciation, and you are encouraged to take a part in your student 
government. Student government was created and acts in your 
interest and for your benefit, and that participation which you 
give it will help it realize its goals. Help us to help you to help 
us all! 


The DIAMONDS ACK is our campus newspaper; it is edited, 
written, and financed by the student body. Four days a week it 
is distributed at convenient spots around campus. 

As a guide to campus life, the DIAMONDS AC K has all the 
features of a metropolitan newspaper. Feature stories, sports pages, 
comic strips, and club news represent only a small part of the 
variety found in this tabloid. 

Openings for interested undergraduates are available in all 
departments. If you are a would-be reporter, photographer, artist, 
or business manager, why don't you stop by the office sometime 
and see about joining the crew? 

Published six times during the school year, the OLD LINE 
magazine is the campus favorite for laughs. The best in student 
creative writing is presented, as well as college humor and features 
on campus personalities and activities. 

Membership on the staff is open to all students in both the 
editorial and business departments of OLD LINE, Contributions 
are, of course, always welcome, 


Maryland's social, academic, athletic, religious, and political 
life is recapitulated as a pictorial review of the year's activities in 
the student yearbook, the TERRAPIN. The first copy of this 
anual publication is traditionally presented to the May Queen as 
part of the May Day ceremonies. Later in the month, the TER- 
RAPIN is distributed to the student body. 

Staff membership is open to all students. Those interested 
should apply to the Editor. 

As you already know, this is the M-BOOK which is published 
expressly for incoming freshmen, and is distributed during regis- 
tration. We have tried to be a handy reference for newcomers 
who want to find their way around this big, often confusing, 

The M-BOOK is presented to freshmen free of charge. Other 
students desiring a copy may purchase one at the Student Union. 
It is certainly a handy thing to keep nearby! 

The editor, managing editor, and business manager are ap 
pointed by the Publications Board in the spring. The remainder 
of the staff is appointed by the editor from applications submitted 
by interested individuals. 

WMUC, the radio voice of the University of Maryland, broad- 
casts campus events and receives programs from other colleges 
along the Capital Network. As a member of the intercollegiate 
Broadcasting Company, WMUC offers all phases of radio work 
to interested students. The radio station operates on a 7-day-a- 
week schedule. An all-day Saturday show is featured, entitled 
"Metronome." Live events carried during the year include the 
Interfraternity Sing, Harmony Hall, campus election returns, and 
Handel's "Messiah." 

The newest addition to the University's publications is EX- 
PRESSION, a literary magazine. Short stories and poems make 
up most of its contents. This "egghead" magazine of ours adds a 
new twist in humor and literature! 

Students are urged to offer contributions to EXPRESSION . 
It is published twice a year, and is distributed to students at 
convenient places on campus. 


To give us the badly needed study breaks during this week, 
there is a variety of entertainment that caters to Maryland stu- 
dents. Why, without parties and that long awaited Saturday night 
date, there would be no color in each week. But naturally these 
fun fests and movie dates will become "old stuff" to you and you 
will no doubt find yourself hunting every corner for something 
"new" to see and do. Actually you will have little trouble, as 
many campus organizations, as well as outside entertainers, show 
us their talents in the course of the year. 

The S.G.A. Cultural Committee is always available on the 
spot to arrange performances for students by artists outside the 
University. The Broadway show, "Most Happy Fella," has already 
been planned for October 8 in the Cole Activities Building. This 

is a musical show telling the story of an Italian farmer in the Napa 
Valley region who ordered a bride by mail. Along this same line 
the opera Carmen will be seen on April 12 during our spring 

The four National Symphony concerts sponsored by the Stu- 
dent Government are big events on our calendars. We'll get a 
chance to see Phillepe Entremont on November 12, an opera on 
January 14, a jazz concert on February 25, and a ballet on March 
13. All four concerts fall on Thursday which we found breaks up 
the week nicely. But we have left out the best part. As a student 
you get all four tickets for free, all you need is your Student Activ- 
ities Card, to present at the door. 

You will find that Ritchie Coliseum is the scene of many 
shows you will not want to miss. Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity's 
Harmony Hall features Barber Shop quartet singing competition. 
Tri-Delta sorority sponsors the Interfraternity Sing which is com- 
petition between many campus fraternities and sororities. These 
events are free and on week nights. 

The now famous Flying Follies cannot be missed. This organ- 
ization grew out of an overseas trip made by twenty-eight students 
to Scotland, Iceland, the Azores, and Bermuda during Christmas 
of '58. After returning from the trip, the group decided to become 
a permanent organization to provide entertainment for the campus 
and community. Under their "new regime," Flying Follies is a 
school function that first owes shows to the campus before it makes 
engagements throughout the East. Last year they performed dur- 
ing Freshman Orientation, Newcomer's Club meetings, country 
club dinners and hospital parties. The University Theatre is the 
setting for the two hour Flying Follies show on campus. 

Tryouts for Flying Follies come in mid-October. Auditions 
are held for performers and interviews are given to technical 
workers. A Review Board of faculty members, student members, 
and three talent chairmen rate the performers on stage presence, 
personality, potential talent, and audience appeal. Since there is 
a good chance that the group will travel to Europe this year, but 
your talents to use and try out. Who knows, you may become a 

The longer you are here the more you will see that we are 
a rather musical campus. You will enjoy the concerts given by the 
band in Ritchie Coliseum. Choral works take the spotlight, parti- 
cularly at Christmas and Easter when the Chapel Choir gives the 
appropriate portion of Handel's "Messiah" for the holidays. These 
performances usually take place in Memorial Chapel on the Sun- 
day before classes let out. Along the same line are the Men's Glee 
Club and the Women's Chorus productions. The annual "Cere- 
mony of Carols" by the Women's jChorus, following the AWS 
Christmas pageant, adds a seasonal glow to the campus. 

Now if you are intellectually minded or show an interest in 
world affairs, you will definitely want to attend some of the Coffee 

Hours sponsored by the Associated Women Students held in the 
Student Union on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. Discussions 
led by faculty members include world, national, and local topics 
which are of particular interest to college students. Make a note 
to be in the Student Union and drop in on one of these groups. 

Of all the events held during the year you will find that there 
is one to which everyone is urging you to attend. This is the con- 
vocation or convocations, depending on how many speakers are 
available. Classes are called and masses of students swarm to hear 
the hour long program. Last year Senator Kennady gave us an 
enthusiastic talk on our importance in national politics. 

The K. A. Minstrel adds a touch of humor to each school 
year. This annual event is a highlight in the spring semester. 
Tickets are sold a week in advance at the Central Auditorium box 

During the year, the art department sponsors several exhibits 
in the Student Union. You will probably be astonished when you 
see the talent that some Maryland students possess. Last year one 
display was entirely devoted to the works of one student. 

If you are athletically inclined, you will definitely enjoy the 
famous Gymkhana Troup shows. They are always held in the 
Spring semester just when that lag before Easter break begins to 
show. William P. Cole Field House was last year's setting for the 
show and ticket books are always the admission. 

Also along the athletic line is the Aqualiners' Water Show 
held in the men's pool in the field house about the same time of 
the year. Last year Walt Disney characters came to life at the 
water's edge in "A Dip with Disney." Tickets for this show are 
available at the door. You will not want to miss either of these 
shows as they provide an enjoyable bit of entertainment. 

University Theater is the dramatic group on campus. Each 
year U.T. presents four major productions which usually include 
a contemporary play, a Greek tragedy, an experimental play and 
a musical. The theater is always alive with excitement and will 
begin its active year by having a try-out September 21. The first 
shows opens October 23 and runs through October 31. The second 
show this semestei begins December 4 and continues through 
December 12, Next semester the first show runs from March 4 
through March 12, and the musical opens April 29 and closes our 
season on May 7. 

Everyone is welcome — and needed — at U.T. To be eligible 
for membership, a student is required to work three productions 
and ten hours in the workshop which will count as one of the 
major productions. All parts of every play are open to everyone 
and besides actors, make-up artists, costume committees, props, 
lighting, publicity, box office and house committees are needed to 
produce a good show. No experience in the theater is necessary to 
work in any capacity on the productions. 


Traditionally the Hale Awards are presented to the two seniors 
who have contributed the most to University Theater during their 
four years of college. The "Maggie" Awards are also presented by 
the Old Line Magazine to the Best Actor, Actress, Supporting 
Actor and Actress, Best Character Role and Best Production at the 
Annual U.T.-O/d Line Banquet. 

Information about University Theater is posted on the call 
Board on the floor of Woods Hall. 

Besides regular productions, two arena productions, one each 
semester, are directed and entirely produced by students. Also, lab 
theater which consists of one-act plays directed by freshmen are 
presented each semester. 

To share in the excitement and fun of each play, come to 
University Theater. 

It's easy to see that we have scads of sources of entertainment. 
It would be impossible to attend all of these things, of course, but 
we urge you to watch the Diamondback for news of these events. 
Don't miss too many of them for we are sure you will enjoy all of 
these campus attractions. 



An honorary is an organization which is formed to honor 
persons in a particular field. The membership requirements for an 
honorary are usually quite high. A professional group has a more 
open membership, its academic requirements are usually not as 
demanding as those set by an honorary, and it is for people inter- 
ested in the field. Furdier information on departmental honorar- 
ies can usually be obtained from the departmental office.

Why is ROTC required? 

The University of Maryland is a federal land-grant institution, 
and for this reason, ROTC is required of all male students for 
two years, just as at all other federal land-grant institutions. The 
two years of ROTC are also a prerequisite to graduation, unless 
the student is a veteran of the armed forces. 

What is ROTC? 

The ROTC — Reserved Officers Training Corps — program 
is divided into two parts: the basic courses taken during the fresh- 
man and sophomore years, and the advanced courses which may be 
elected during the junior and senior years. 

What is advanced ROTC? 

To qualify for the advanced ROTC program, cadets are care- 
fully screened during their first two years. Those men who choose 
to fulfill their military obligations through advanced ROTC are 
granted a draft deferment. Upon completion of four years of 
AFROTC training and graduation from the University, the ad- 
vanced cadet receives a commission as a second lieutenant in the 
U.S. Air Force Reserve. 

Military Honoraries 

There are several organizations which honor those individuals 
who excell in the military field.

The University of Maryland offers to nearly every student 
an opportunity to join a religious organization. Most of these 
organizations meet on Wednesday nights, and offer religious and 
social activities throughout the year. Through membership in

interest in their religious denomination. 

The offices of the chaplains and the religious organizations 
are located in the chapel. 

Those interested in joining a religious organization may con- 
tact the advisor, an officer, or simply attend the meetings. Notice 
of meetings is usually publish in the Diamondback.

To get in the College Spirit, get out and root for your teams. 
All events are free. You just show your athletics book at the door, 
it is your ticket. 


If you are interested in sports but, like the majority, are not 
quite talented enough to participate in varsity athletics, you may 
enter any of the various competitive sports offered by the Intra- 
murals Program. 

Intramurals, through both Greek and Independent competi- 
tion, offers such sf>orts as touch football, basketball, softball, and 
boxing. All leagues are completely organized and scheduled. Man- 
agerial positions are also oj>en. 

The Women's Recreation Association serves in the capacity 
of providing competitive athletics for the women. Volleyball, bad- 
minton, basketball, softball and swimming tournaments are held 
throughout the year. 

Both Dorms and Sororities are invited to compete for the 
trophy which is presented to the outstanding organization. 

You will have a W.R.A. representative in your dorm who will 
enter you in any activity you desire. 


Freshmen are all invited to participate in freshman athletics 
which are stepping stones to varsity sports. Such sports as football, 
basketball, baseball, track, and lacrosse are offered among others, 
and athletic scholarships are not required for participation. 

Any interested freshman should inquire as to times of team 
meetings at the office of the coach of the sport in which he is 
interested. Meeting dates and times will also be published in the 
sports section of the Diamondback. 

If you aren't already sufficiently confused by the expansive- 
ness of the University and the complexity of its activities, football 
coach Tom Nugent will do the job when he introduces his magic 
"I" formation as the Terps take the field this season. 

The best brand of soccer in the country also highlights the 
Maryland fall sports scene. The Terps have never been beaten 
in the Conference since entering six year ago. 

Maryland's runners open up their year-round activities as the 
cross-country season opens soon. 

When the cold winds and the snow arrive, Maryland's athletic 
activities move inside where it's warm. One of the warmest 
places on campus will be the Cole Fieldhouse where one of Terp- 
land's tallest basketball squads in years will be battling for the 
A.C.C. championship and a berth in the N.C.A.A. playoffs. 

Also in the Fieldhouse, the swimming team will hit the water 
in what should be its most successful season to date. 

Coach Jim Kehoe's indoor track squad, which has become the 
power of the A.C.C, defends its title against rising competition 
this winter. The Maryland rifle squad levels its sights toward an 
unbeaten season as it opens up its schedule in the Armory. 

Many athletes and fans enjoy man-to-man combat, and this 
provided by Maryland's perennial A.C.C. champion wrestling 
team. Like the soccerites. Sully Krouse's men have never lost a 
match in the Conference. 


The snows have subsided now, and sports move back outside 
where the fan can sit in the sunshine, drink a coke, and enjoy a 
good baseball or lacrosse game, or track meet. 

Lacrosse, a minor sport in many places, is major in every re- 
spect at Maryland. The Terrapin stickmen are perenially rated 
within the top four teams in the nation. 

Maryland was the big baseball surprise in the A.C.C. last 
spring. The Terps came close to the title, and, with a tough 
freshman team coming up, prospects for this year are even brighter. 

Besides lacrosse and baseball, Maryland's phenomenal track 
team moves outside where it is at its best, while golf and tennis 
are taking advantage of the warming weather as well. 



Dormit-ory Rules 

It has been said that all those who don't get married by the 
time they graduate from high school go to college — and there 
they get four more years to try. Most of the men on campus are 
working for a BA or a BS degree, but it often appears (at least 
to the men) that the co-eds are mostly after their MRS degree. 

However, it is a fact that even the men feel they can study 
better if they have a weekend date to look forward to. But with a 
ratio of three men to every girl, things can become a little hectic 
now and then. Just lining up a date for a week-end can prove 
to be a major exercise in research and development. 

This, it may be pointed out, is consistant with the college 
aim of training alert citizenship. The boys learn very early the 
necessity of planning ahead. Some girls seem to be booked solid 
for months in advance. 

The girls, it can easily be seen, undergo extensive training in 
tact, organization and memory. They must learn to make split- 
second decisions of preference based on the relative values of 
birds-in-the-hand and those in-the-bush. They must remember the 
personal histories of each boy they date and, most important they 
must not get mixed up. 

Some girls have been known to keep extensive files on their 
dates. Immediately after coming in from an evening out, they sit 
down and add to their file everything new they learned about that 
boy that night. By a short review before each date, they are able 
to avoid the embarassment of asking how his sister Jane is when 
he has no sisters, or saying, "I saw a brother Phi Delt of yours to- 
day," when the fellow is an ATO. 

You can see that much strategic planning is involved on both 
sides of such a problem. Many boys have resorted to the angler's 
solution. They dangle a sparkling piece of jewelry in the stream 
of new, innocent, unsuspecting froshwomen and hook the first one 
that comes near. This solves the boy's problem, but it is frowned 
upon by some because it deprives both parties of valuable training. 

The girls, however have just, organized the whole operation. 
They schedule regular hours for men visitors and exercise a good 
deal of control over the eternal herd. They also keep a day by day 
record of whom they go out with where, how, and for how long. 
It is well for all university men to beware of some of their rules 
and regulations. 

Boy Visits Girl 

Men can visit the girls' dorm from 1 p.m. until 10 p.m. every 
day but Monday, when they must leave by 9:45 p.m. In addition, 
on Friday and Saturday the hours are extended to from 12 noon 
until 12:45 a.m.; and on Sunday they are 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. 

Boys should call for their girls in the dorm lobby, and they 

are not to wander into the rest of the building unless escorted by 
one of the residents. No smoking is allowed in the lobby. 

The sororities have the same hours on Friday and Saturday, 
but they are a good deal more restrictive the rest of the week. 
Sundays are open 12 noon until 10:30 p.m. Varying with each 
house, two of the days between Monday and Thursday are closed 
all day, one day is open from 4 to 8 p.m. and one from 4 to 10 

Men calling at other times may wait for their dates in the 
reception hall for five minutes at the descretion of the house- 

The busy signal in the most common answer one gets when he 
is trying to call girls* residences by telephone, but it is important 
to know when it is possible to call. The girls' dorm switchboards 
open on weekdays at 8 a.m., the boys' at 9, and they close at 10:30 
p.m. (except on Monday — 10:00 p.m.) . On weekends the hours 
are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 10:30 to 10:30 on Sunday. 

Girl Visits Boy 

Men's dorms are a no-woman's land, for girls are not per- 
mitted to enter them except for registered parties. Relatives visit- 
ing boys should call at the dorm office in Annapolis Hall or at 
the housemother's apartment. 

Fraternity members must have the permission of the house- 
mother before bringing a girl into the house. Regular hours for 
women visitors are 4:30 to 7 p.m. Fridays, 1:00 to 7 p.m. Saturdays, 
and 2:30 to 7 p.m. Sundays (or if she is invited to dinner, 12:30 
to 7 p.m.) . Registered parties are to be over by 12:30 a.m. Friday 
nights and 12 nidnight on Saturdays. 

Well, now you know where you stand. May we say just two 
more things on the subject — "Happy hunting, girls;" and "Boys, 
good luckl" 


An institution with which all new students soon become fa- 
miliar is the Campus Police Force. Many students find themselves 
at an early date looking for the Police Cashier's Office. You may 
as well learn right now that this well-known office is located on 
the second floor of the General Service Building, which is across 
Baltimore Boulevard from the Dairy Building and just north of 
Ritchie Coliseum. Someone has thoughtfully placed little signs 
around at strategic points near this office, showing the way. You 
can even park your automobile just outside — for a limited time 
only, of course. 

The clerks in this office will obligingly and cheerfully clear 
your name of traffic violations — it's like going to the dentist to 
have a tooth filled — the charges are nominal, too, usually around 
$3 a visit. 

Trouble is, even $3 a visit can soon drive most students bank- 
rupt. So just as we are taught to brush our teeth to keep our trips 
to the dentist down, it is wise to learn to keep your nose clean 
with the Campus Police to cut down your trips to the Cashier. 

Traffic regulation is necessary, especially with 13,000 cars 
registered on campus, if any kind of order is to be kept. The 
police are hired to do a job; the least we can do is to cooperate. 


The first thing to be done is to register that vehicle — any- 
thing with three or more wheels. This you can do during official 
registration on the Armory floor at the beginning of each semester, 
or by paying a visit to the Office of the Campus Police at the 
North Gatehouse. You are given a parking permit when you regis- 
ter which you must place in the top center of your front wind- 

Registration is free, but failure to do so will cost you $5. 

Most visits to the Cashier's Office are the result of parking 
violations; so unless you are rich and don't care, you should spend 
a couple of minutes to learn these simple rules: 

1. Cars must be parked on assigned parking lots when on 
campus from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. weekdays. 

2. At other times all lots are open to everyone except Lot 
G (between Sylvester Hall and Skinner Building) . 

3. Parking is not permitted along campus roads except for 
cases after 6 p.m. the north side of Chapel Drive from 
Somerset Hall to the Dining Hall crosswalk; and the 
west side of Regents Drive from Symons Hall to Annap- 
olis Hall. 

4. Students are not to park in the curbed recesses which 
are found around campus; they are for visitors. 

The other rules should be very obvious, such as the 20mph 
speed limit, don't park at crosswalks, don't run stop signs, don't 
drive on the grass, don't drive on the walks, and don't run over

k.A Ek.r 

It is assumed that all persons who continue their schooling 
beyond the secondary level are trying to become mature and re- 
sponsible members of the society in which they live. It is not just 
idle talk that the leaders of society will be its more educated mem- 


bers. But perhaps even more important than the knowledge a 
university can impart to its students is the opportunity to mature 
in wisdom and responsibility. College life provides this opportu- 
nity abundantly through its varied social and extra-curricular 

While in college a student should strive to perfect his charac- 
ter, to develop his personality, and to learn the qualities necessary 
to be a good leader and a good follower, for in our diverse society 
a person must be both. 

A student is expected to know already the fundamentals of 
personal integrity and their importance. Any student who violates 
these fundamentals is dealt with accordingly, since such a person 
has no place in society at all, and especially not a position of 
leadership. A student may be given a disciplinary reprimand or 
placed on disciplinary probation for misdemeanors, or he may be 


suspended or expelled from the University, depending on the 
seriousness of the offense. 

While improper conduct in general is out of line, specific 
rules the administration requires students to honor include the 

1. No drinking of alcoholic beverages on campus, in frater- 
nities or sororities, or at any function sponsored by a student or- 

2. No gambling on campus or in fraternity or sorority houses. 

3. No smoking in classrooms. 

4. No one is to be in a classroom, administration, or recrea- 
tion building unsupervised after S.p.m. weekdays or on holidays 
without written permission. 

5. Keys to rooms and buildings are obtained through official 
channels only. Illegal possession or unauthorized use of keys is 
considered a serious offense. 

6. No mobs or riots are permitted. 

7. No cheating or plagarism. Honesty is the mortar of society. 
Without honest behavior and truthfulness the mutual trust which 
binds us together would be impossible. All men everywhere must 
insist on this in all aspects of life, if they are to live and work 
together. If a person hasn't learned this by the time he gets to 
college, he probably never will; therefore he must be treated 


Exams. Midterm examinations are usually predetermined by 
the instructor and dates for these appear on the course outline. 
Those wonderful finals which you will grow to abhor are held at 
the end of each semester in accordance with the official schedule 
of exams appearing in the schedule of classes booklet. Exams are 
taken in official exam booklets or "blue books" as they are loving- 
ly referred to unless otherwise specified by the instructor. 

Dismissal and probation. The rules governing dismissal and 
probation that you should be acquainted with at the present time 

A student failing 50 percent or more of his academic credits 
in any semester will be dismissed. 

A student failing 35 per cent of his academic credits in any 
semester will be placed on academic probation. 

A student having been placed on probation and not achieving 
such grades as are required under the probation plans will be dis- 

A student will remain on academic probation for the next 
semester of residence. He will then be released provided he has 
earned at least a 1.75 average and has not failed more than 35 per 
cent of his work. 

Exceptions are made for first semester freshmen. A freshman 
admitted as a regular student who is dismissed from the University 
at the end of his first semester because he failed 50 percent or more 
of his academic credits will be reinstated immediately on the pro- 
bation plan upon receipt of a specific request by the student's 

parent or guardion. 

Please remember that in "Rules and Regulations" we are only 
giving you some basic essentials which all Maryland students 
should know. All of you should receive a copy of the University's 
"General and Academic Regulations" booklet. This has been the 
source of our material, and it covers all of these areas with more 

The University feels that a student's class grade should re- 
flect more than just exam grades. Interest and participation are 
also, in many cases, governing factors. For this reason you are 
expected to attend each session of the classes in which you are 

There are no free or "automatic" cuts. In cases of major 
calamity when you are unable to attend class the arrangements for 
making up the work are between you and the instructor. In some 
courses points are deducted from a student's final grade for failure 
to show interest and lack of participation by not showing up for 
the scheduled meetings. 

Instructors in other courses review a student's absences in 
determining the final grade, and may drop a student's grade for 
excessive cuts. A student making a pest of himself by persistent cut- 
ting will be reported to the dean of his college, which may lead to 
the student being dropped from class with the sorry grade of "F". 

The only way to beat the attendance rules is to attain an aver- 
age of 3.5, students with such an average are not burdened by the 
foregoing rule- 

Although it is inconceivable to us that a student would want 
to withdraw from Maryland there are procedures to follow in 
case such a catastrophe as this confronts you. These procedures 
also pertain to students, who for reasons, such as blowing up a 
Chemistry lab, etc., might be compelled to leave the University. 

Obtain a withdrawal slip from the dean of your college or in 
the Registrar's office. 

Obtain proper signatures designated on this withdrawal slip 
and file it in the Registrar's office. 

Students who have been at Maryland for eight weeks certainly 
never want to leave but nevertheless someone has spent needless 
time and energy formulating procedures to govern this 

When a student has been enrolled for eight weeks withdraws, 
each instructor will indicate on a permanent record whether the 
student was passing or failing at the time of withdrawal. 

Students not withdrawing in the prescribed manner will not 
be entitled to an honorable dismissal, forfeit all refunds and re- 
ceive a sorry grade of "F" in all his classes. 

Semester hour. A semester hour is the unit of University aca- 
demic credit. Each semester hour or "credit" usually represents 
one hour spent in classroom activity a week for one semester. In 
other words, let us take our beloved English as an example, three 


hours a week are spent in English class a semester, therefore three 
semester hours of credit are accrued for English. Semester hours 
of credit may vary in special classes such as labs. It is assumed by 
the University that students will devote two hours of studying a 
week to each semester hour. 

Dean's slips. For the less industrious students who may not 
have hit the books quite hard enough, reports are turned in to the 
dean of the student's college at the end of the sixth week of classes, 
and a deplorable dean's slip will appear in the student's mailbox. 
These dean's slips, technically known as academic deficiency re- 
ports, are sent to those students having a "D" or "F" in any given 
class. These dreaded bits of correspondence do not mean that a 
student has failed the course but are merely invitations to start 
studying. They are very conducive in this respect in that they 
are also sent to the student's parent or guardian. 

Grades. As you probably have already guessed, and without 
too much mental strain, students receive their grades at the end 
of each semester. Grade symbols are as follows: A superior scho- 
larship; B good scholarship; C fair scholarship; D passing scholar- 
ship; F failure; I incomplete. 

Grades of F in required courses and D or F in courses of a 
student's major must be taken over as soon as the course is offered 
again. Because of the annoyance involved here students should 
stay clear of such grades. 

The grade "I" is given to a student when his work has been 
satisfactory quantitatively but because of illness or other reasons 
beyond his control he has been unable to complete all require- 
ments of the course. Students receiving scch a grade must com- 
plete the required work by the end of the next semester in which 
the course is offered or the grade becomes "¥". 

Prerequisites. Since many upper division courses (those num- 
bered 100 and above) require a prerequisite course in the lower 
division, you should scrutinize your college catalog for these 
courses so that you will be prepared for them when you achieve 
junior standing. 

The first thing you must do is to get properly signed in and 
registered for your courses. There are several steps in this process, 
and they usually take most of one day during the registration 

You will begin at the library, go through your Dean's office, 
and wind up on the floor of the Armory. Detailed instructions for 
registration are included in the "Schedule of Class" for each 
semester, so we won't go into them here. 

Be sure you run the gauntlet at the proper time on the proper 
day. The student body is divided, for purposes of registration, into 
alphabetical groups. These groups alternate in order each semes- 
ter; so you must consult your "Schedule of Classes" each time for 
your assigned day. 

Late registration will cost you $5, and each change in regis- 
tration $3. By all means do it right the first time.
