1 o THE Members of 
THE Class of '66: 

Each year as the University 
welcomes its new students it 
is rejuvenated by the enthus- 
iasm and vigor of its new citi- 
zens. 

Citizenship means a great deal more than be- 
ing a member. Only by diligent effort on your 
part will you become a citizen of the University 
Community. Accept your obligation in aca- 
demics and to your fellow students and you will 
be prepared to succeed after leaving the Univer- 
sity. 

The United States is locked in a struggle for 
the minds of men as at no other time in history. 
The -well educated alone can support this com- 
mitment and overcome our competitor's threat 
to the world. Challenge is the password of the 
era. Meet and surpass the challenge of college 
and you will survive to help this nation lead the 
rest of the world from poverty and servitude. 

I, and the student body welcome you and 
whh you success in academics and citizenship.

The University Heritage 

Few institutions of higher learning in the 
United States have had as rich and proud a his- 
tory as the University of Maryland. Students 
admitted will find the institution stressing pro- 
grams of educational excellence, vital research, 
and important service to the community. 

The University dates back to 1807, just 31 
vears after the signing of the Declaration of In- 
dependence, when the College of Medicine was 
founded in Baltimore. During the first century 
of the College's existence the School of Law 
(1823), the School of Dentistry (1882), the 
School of Nursing (1889), and the Maryland 
College of Pharmacy (1904) Avere founded. At 
College Park, in 1856, the Maryland Agriculture 
College, the first agricultural college in the 
United States, and the second in the western 
hemisphere, was established at Riverdale, an es- 
tate purchased from Charles B. Calvert. In 1862 
when Congress passed the Morrill Land Grant 
Act, the Maryland Agriculture College was 
named beneficiary of the grant to receive federal 
aid to education. In 1920 the University of 
Maryland in Baltimore and the Maryland Agri- 
culture College, as it was then known, were 
merged to form ^vhat is now the University of 
Marvland. 



The history o£ the University is filled with 
many noteworthy achievements of which we are 
proud. 

• The School of dentistry was the first in the 
world, thus, it was responsible for the only 
profession ever to be established in the 
United States. 

• The School of Nursing was established in 
1889 by Louisa Parsons with the direct co- 
operation of Florence Nightengale. 

• The School of Law was the fourth to be 
founded in the U.S. 

• The Graduate school ranks fifth in rate of 
doctoral production in the U.S. among ma- 
jor institutions. 

Facts and Figures 

The enrollment on the College Park campus 
is 18,500 with 28,980 enrolled in the overseas 
branches— undergraduates, graduates, and night 
school students. 

The operating budget comes to about $48,- 
000,000. The State appropriates approximately 
$20,500,000 of this cost; the balance comes from 
other sources— such as fixed charges and endow- 
ments. Maryland is endowed with about $5,344,- 
800, much in the form of scholarships and grants 
available to students. 

There are 3,300 full time and part time in- 
structional and research personnel. 



Traditions 

The University mascot is Testudo; a 500 
pound diamondback Terrapin found at the en- 
trance to Byrd Stadium. 

The School colors are black and gold; red 
and white are used as athletic colors. 

Maryland is a campus where growth is the 
greatest tradition, but a campus where other 
quiet traditions still survive. In the past, fresh- 
men couples have quickly discovered the se- 
cluded tunnel by the chapel; requirements for 
passing through included a boy, a girl, and a kiss. 
The wishing well at Rossborough; the mud on 
the mall; the leisurely walk up the hill; and the 
chapel bells chiming, "Maryland, My Mary- 
land," are all Maryland traditions which unite 
the past and the present. 

At College Park, during the year 1961, budd- 
ings were completed to house the College of 
Business and Public Administration, the Depart- 
ments of Foreign Languages, Classical Lan- 
guages and Philosophy, and a dormitory-dinmg 
half complex with the dormitories providing for 
more than a thousand students. Work was init- 
iated on the renovation of a building to house 
the Departments of English and Sociology. The 
Student Union is undergoing expansion and an 
additional floor is being added to the physics 
building and to the mathematics building. 



10 



The University possesses some 2,500 acres of 
land. The main campus at College Park encom- 
passes about 300 acres with 800 additional acres 
adjacent to it available for agricultural research 
and teaching. At College Park there are eighty- 
three principal buildings designed in a Georgian 
Colonial style. 

Although the University is a State institution 
quite large in physical plant, student enrollment, 
the number of courses and degrees offered, and 
services performed, its objectives remain constant 
and form a base for all educational activity. 
Simply stated they are: (1) to prepare students 
in the arts, the humanities, the pure and applied 
sciences, agriculture, business and public admin- 
istration, home economics, industry, and for the 
professions; (2) to contribute to civic, ethical, 
moral, cultural, spiritual, and general welfare; 
(3) to provide general education in its broadest 
sense, both formal and informal, for all students 
who enroll; (4) to develop those ideals and finer 
relationships among students which characterize 
cultured individuals; (5) to conduct systematic 
research and to promote creative scholarship; 
and (6) to offer special, continuation, and ex- 
tension education in communities where it is fea- 



si 



ble.

College of Agriculture 

The College of Agriculture provides a num- 
ber of curriculums to prepare persons for the 
wide variety of careers open to its graduates in 
agricultural production, business, technology, 
and science. All four-year programs lead to the 
Bachelor of Science degree. 

Curriculums in Agriculture include study in 
the basic physical and biological sciences, in 
liberal arts and social sciences, physical educa- 
tion and military studies, basic studies of the 
entire field of agriculture, and specialized study 
in the student's chosen curriculum. This com- 
bination helps prepare the individual for useful 
citizenship, physical development, a basic un- 
derstanding of science in general and the science 
of agriculture in particular, and competence in 
his chosen area of specialization. 

Instruction in Agriculture is keyed primarily 
to basic principles that the Agriculture graduate 
may adapt to a changing agriculture of the fu- 
ture. 

Graduates of the College of Agriculture 
choose a wide variety of careers. Some grad- 
uates of all curriculums enter college teaching 
and basic and applied research. Some of the 
careers which graduates of specific curriculums 
enter are: Agriculture-General; Agricultural 
Chemistry; Agricultural Economics; Agricultural 



24 



and Extension Education; Agricultural Engi- 
neering; Agronomy; Animal Husbandry; Bot- 
any; Dairy Husbandry; Technology; Entomol- 
ogy; Horticulture; Poultry Husbandry. 

In addition to the above curriculums, there 
are special curriculums for students preparing 
to attend schools of forestry, veterinary science, 
or to study to become rural ministers. Students 
who desire to spend only a limited time in col- 
lege to prepare for farming and various special- 
ized occupations may enter the Two-Year Pro- 
gram in Agriculture. 

College of Arts and Sciences 
Bachelor of Arts 

The College of Arts and Sciences offers its 
students a liberal education. It seeks to develop 
graduates who can deal intelligently with the 
problems which confront them and whose gen- 
eral education will be a continuing source not 
only of material profit, but of genuine personal 
satisfaction. The programs combine liberal edu- 
cation with special concentration in one or more 
of the basic intellectual or artistic disciplines. 

A liberal arts education is the normal prepa- 
ration for the student who plans to go to law 
school; to a post-graduate or professional school 
of business administration, library science or 
social service; or to a theological seminary. 



25 



The student interested in research (business 
and industry, government, university) and in 
college teaching will receive the undergraduate 
preparation necessary for the graduate work re- 
quired in these fields. 

By including the appropriate courses in edu- 
cation, a student in many of these areas can 
qualify for public school teaching. For students 
interested in foreign service, the foreign area 
programs combine intensive study of a language 
with study of the civilization of the area. Other 
special fields in business and government are 
open to the student who completes a liberal arts 
education with a suitable concentration in a 
single field of study. 

Specialized programs are also offered in the 
fine arts (art, drama, music) and in speech ther- 
apy; American Civilization; Art; Comparative 
Literature; Economics; English; Foreign Area 
Studies; French; Geography; German; Govern- 
ment and Politics; Greek; History; Latin; Music; 
Philosophy; Psychology; Russian; Sociology; 
Spanish; Speech (Dramatic Art and Speech 
Therapy) ; and Pre-Law. 

Bachelor of Science 

The program in each of the science fields 
combines liberal education with a concentration 
in one of the basic sciences or in mathematics. 



26 



The graduates of these science programs are 
prepared for specialized positions in industry 
and government. 

The student in these science programs can 
also gain the preparation necessary for admis- 
sion to the professional schools of medicine and 
dentistry or for admission to graduate work lead- 
ing to advanced degrees in Mathematics, Chem- 
istry, Physics, and the Biological Sciences. Re- 
istry, Avork (industry, government, university) 
and college teaching are among the possibilities 
open to the student who successfully completes 
an undergraduate and graduate program in 
mathematics or one of the basic sciences.

ACADEMIC 

I N FORMATION 




Academic Facilities and Services 

Coioiscling Center: The Counseling Center 
at the University of Maryland enables students 
to better understand themselves, their assets and 
liabilities. This Center offers free services to all 
students enrolled at the University, among which 
are counseling, psychological testing and provid- 
ing occupational information. An outstanding 
feature of the center is the Reading and Study 
Skill Lab for students who wish to improve 
their educational skills. Students may enroll for 
the self-help program to improve reading ability, 
study skills, vocabulary and spelling, at the be- 
ginning or in the middle of each semester. There 
is no charge for any of these services for uni- 
versity students. 

Policy of Academic Probation 

Unsatisfactory work: A student who fails in 
50% or more of his scheduled academic credits 
shall be dismissed. A student who fails more 
than 35% of his credits shall be placed on aca- 
demic probation. A student who earns less than 
1.5 for the year shall be placed on academic pro- 
bation. Every course except required P.E. shall 
be included in the average. Students will be 
given one semester to earn at least a 1.75 average 
which, if he fails to do, will result in dismissal. 
Freshmen on academic probation shall be 
granted an additional semester for reinstate- 



39 



ment, provided he has earned an average of at 
least 1.5 and not failed more than 35% of his 
credits. A freshman failing 50% of his credits 
may be reinstated immediately on academic pro- 
bation, with the request of his parents. 

A student shall be placed on academic proba- 
tion at the end of any semester when he has 
not attained junior standing, but has been regis- 
tered in at least 63 academic semester hours. 
This student must earn junior standing during 
his next semester, or is subject to dismissal. 

Academic Standing 

Freshmen-less than 28 credits 
Sophomores— 28 credits 
Juniors— 56 credits 
Seniors-88 credits 

American Civilization Program 

The American Civilization Program is de- 
signed to provide a student with a general edu- 
cational background. The first level is required 
of all freshmen and sophomores, and prescribes 
that all students obtain 24 hours of credit in 
these lower division courses. The hours are as 
follows: English-12, American History-6, Amer- 
ican Government-6, and 3 additional hours of 
an elected course from Elective Group I, includ- 
ing Economics 37, Philosophy I, Sociology I,

40 



Attendance Requirements 

Classes are 50 to 75 minutes long. I£ the 
instructor is late, students are required to wait 
20 minutes tor deans, 15 for doctors, and 10 
minutes for instructors before dismissing them- 
selves. No automatic "cuts" (absences) are al- 
lowed except for students who have attained a 
3.5 average for the previous semester at this 
University. Whenever a student has accumulated 
more than three unexcused absences, the instruc- 
tor reports such absences to the student's dean, 
and the student may be penalized for such ab- 
sences. Absences due to illness and participation 
in University activities constitute excused ab- 
sences. In case of illness, the Infirmary or at- 
tending physician must give statements to the 
dean concerning absences. Indisposition slips 
may also excuse an absence. These are obtained 
from residence housemothers for minor illnesses 
and students can not use more than one of 
these a month. 

Dean's Slips 

All students doing work below "C" level af- 
ter the first 6 weeks of school receive letters from 
the dean. Students concerned are advised to 
consult with the teacher of the particular sub- 
ject to correct the situation. 



41 



Examinations 

For undergraduate candidates tor degrees, 
iinal exams are waived in the 2nd semester ot 
the academic year. A two hour exam is held at 
the end of each semester for each course taken. 
Two or three exams are usually given in each 
course during a semester, depending on the in- 
structor. If a student misses an exam and has a 
legal excuse he will be allowed to take a make up 
exam. 

Dropping and Repeating Courses 

For legitimate reasons, a student may drop a 
course during the first 3 weeks of the semester 
without an F. First-semester Freshmen are al- 
lowed eight weeks in which to drop a course. 
Approval of the dean is needed. A student may 
repeat a course only once except with special 
permission. Students are allowed to audit courses 
with the permission of the dean and the instruc- 
tor of the course. No credit is received for an 
audit course. 

Grading System 

The symbols and numerical equivalents for 
marks are: A-4, B-3, C-2, D-1 (passing) , F-O 
(failure) , and I-Incomplete. To compute a 
student's semester average, the numerical value 
attained is multiplied by the number of credits 



42 



of the specilic course. Each subject is treated 
this way and the total score is divided by the 
number of credits considered. In computing se- 
mester averages "o" credit, and required Health 
courses shall be included but required P.E. 
comses will not. Students receive grades at the 
end of the semester. 

Honors 

Various distinctions are given to student who 
excell in their curricula. Students earning a 3.5 
or better are placed on the Dean's list. The over 
all average is used as a basis for honors. Honors 
at graduation are awarded to not more than 
one-fifth of the graduation class in each college. 
The top half receive 1st honors, and the lower 
receive 2nd honors. A 3.0 overall is required 
for an honor. 

Registration 

Each semester the Schedule of Classes is issued 
to each student, containing full information on 
registration procedure. Students register on 
days appointed, according to a rotating alpha- 
betical listing. The normal load is from 15 to 
19 semester hours, this prescribed number being 
modifed only by special permission from the 
dean of the college. The semester hour, which 
is the unit of one credit, is the equivalent of a 
subject pursued one period a week for one se- 



43 



mester. No student on Academic Probation is 
allowed to register for more than 16 semester 
hours including required Health, P.E., and 
A.F.R.O.T.C. courses. Students who do not 
complete their registration on regular registra- 
tion days will pay a fee of $5. Changes in regis- 
tration may be made only wdth the written per- 
mission of the student's dean. After the first 
week there is a $3.00 fee for every change in 
registration. No charge is made for a section 
change. 

Requirements for Degrees 

To receive a baccalaureate degree a student 
must have one year of resident work at this 
University. A minimum of 120 semester credits 
including the 24 hours of American civilization 
Program, and excluding ROTC, Health 2 and 4 
and Required P.E. is required for graduation. A

graduation are also required.

DAY DODGE R S 



This section ivas written especially to give 
the day-dodger a special insight into campus life 
and activities a resident may get into in the 
dorm, but resident students will also find this 
section interesting and informative. 



56 



An Open Letter to the Daydodger 
Welcome to the Campus! 

We hope that all commuting students will 
get the experience of "going away to college 
life." 

This takes a special effort on your part. 
Leave some of your past behind you every day 
so that you can stretch your mind toward new 
ideas, new customs, and new associations. 

Most day students count the cost of college. 
This means counting the way you spend your 
lime. Start by planning first classes, then study, 
then activities and recreation. Friendships will 
come through all of these if you respect yourself 
and others in the way you use each hour. 

Squeeze in a little socializing at lunch or dur- 
ing recreation periods later in the afternoon. 
Participate in the Student Union program so 
that before you go home to study in the evening 
you will have met at least one new idea, one 
new book, one new person, or gained in one new 
skill. 

Come away to college every day. You are 
always welcome to call on any of the Deans of 
Men or Deans of Women in the North Admini- 
stration Building. I personally hope to see many 
of you at meetings of the Commuter's Club. 
Cordially, 
Marian Johnson 
Assistant Dean of Women 
Advisor to the Commuters' Club

All commuting students plus or minus cars 
are urged to sign up at the end of the registra- 
tion procedure in the Armory. Mimeographed 
lists of drivers and riders will be published by 
areas. The list will be in the Student Union. 

1 hose needing rides to various evening ac- 
tivities may get some help through each organi- 
zation's president or advisor. 

Have you taken out insurance? The Univer- 
siay assumes no responsibility for accidents to 
conmiuters as such. 

* Par hi Jig 

All cars must be registered in the Armory 
during registration. There you will be issued a 
parking sticker which must be kept on your 
( ar at all times. (S5.00 fine if it isn't) . Between 
7:00 A.M. and 4:45 p.m. cars must be parked in 
the lot to which they are assigned. After 4:45 
I'.M. they may be parked in any lot other than 
those marked reserved at all times. Never make 
the expensive mistake (S3. 00) of parking in a 
lot which you car's sticker doesn't match. The 
campus police have no day of rest.

* Drivnii:^ 



The 20 mph signs on campus are for the 
safety of students who wish to attend classes or 
just stroll about campus— minus scratches. Please 
don't leave home so late you have to disobey 
them to make your early classes. (The stop signs 
at every corner are for the same reason) . Pedes- 
trians always ha\'e the right of way. On the other 
hand, it's only fair to drivers for pedestrians to 
cross at the corners (where stop signs are any- 
how) . 

University Commuters' Club 

The Commuters' Club was started by a group 
of students who felt that Daydodgers, by virtue 
of their mutual problems as non-residents, had 
much in common to gripe and to laugh about, 
and much to work on as a unit. 

All full-time students are eligible. Members 
pay modest dues. 

• Daydodger Den — in the Student Union 
l^uilding is the office of the Communters' 
Club, also serving as a center of communica- 
tions for commuting students. A large bul- 
letin board is available there for leaving 
messages and notes, as well as car-pool lists, 
sign-up sheets for activities, and maps of 
the metropolitan area.

Resident Students 

Your welcome to the University of Maryland 
^vouldn't be complete without a quick look at 
your new campus home. 

In one of the Georgian style buildings found 
sprinkled around the campus, you will find your 
dormitory home. Here you will hang your hat, 
the picture of your One-and-Only, or a program 
from the latest University Theater production. 
Here you will study, sleep, laugh, cry, 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 scences 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. 

Your room will include single beds, dressers, 
a desk, closets, chairs, and lamps. Your ingenuity 
^vill create a room that reflects your own per- 
sonality. Put personal touches into it by choos- 
ing curtains, bedspreads, rugs, dresser scarfs that 
suit your tastes . . . and don't forget a bulletin 
board for your collectors' items. An extra table, 
l)Ookcase, 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! 



65 



To help you with your stucUes, some of the 
dormitories have even begun keeping examina- 
tion files of past tests and papers. These are 
similar to the ones kept in the Greek residences 
and are completely "legal." You will find these 
an aid in determining the type of exam a pro- 
fessor is prone to give. 

Bermudas and Slacks may be worn every day 
of the week in certain places only: the campus, 
and the lower level of the Student Union. They 
are not to be worn in classroom buildings, lob- 
bies, libraries, etc. 

Dorm Visiting: 

Be a w^elcome guest by observing the niceties 
of the house: make yourself known to the direc- 
tor, always check in at the desk, and observe the 
(piiet-hours regulations of the dorm. 

Overnight guests. Daydodger girls and other 
visitors may stay overnight on weekends at the 
request of a dormitory girl, for a fee of $.50 or 
SI. 00 if linens are provided. This is subject to 
available space, the approval of the house direc- 
tor, and permission being requested 24 hours in 
advance. 

Comparable residence policy for men. Check 
with residence manager in Harford Hall or the 
new Director of Residence, Mr. Joseph Hall— 
216 North Administration Building.

GREEKS 



,-;/ 






Greeks 

Greeks are an integral part of the college 
community both through their groups and their 
individual members. Panhellenic Council and 
I.F.C. represent this through wholehearted co- 
operation with college authorities and serving 
the college community. Greeks expect their 
members to be active in a phase of campus life, 
and each group supports a nation-wide philan- 
throphic project, together with their other chap- 
ters across the United States. These projects 
vary from giving help to the blind to educating 
and aiding an entire mountain settlement. Cul- 
ture is brought to each house through fireside 
chats given by prominent and informative per- 
sons. 

The Greeks place great emphasis on scholar- 
ship. Study programs, tutoring, and trophies all 
add incentives for high scholarship. The all- 
sorority average is consequently higher than the 
all-women's average. The all-fraternity average 
is usually higher than the all-men's average. 

"Rushing" is a term applied to the method 
of securing new members. In September and 
October the Greeks entertain at open houses, 
theme and preference parties in order to become 
acquainted with the rushees. Following this time 
of formal rush there are two periods of informal 
rush: one is held inmiediately after pledging, 



70 



and the other is in february. Sign up for rush 
in the Dean's Office. Any student enrolled at 
the University of Maryland and unaffiliated with 
any National Panhellenic sorority or I.F.C. fra- 
ternity is eligible for rushing. 

To become initiated a pledge must fulfill 
certain obligations to the sorority or fraternity. 
A pledge becomes a member of a pledge class. 
By working together for the sorority or frater- 
nity and to fulfill their duties, these pledges gain 
insight to the closeness and loyalty they will 
have as actives. 

Fraternity row, across Route 1 from the main 
campus, houses seven fraternities and five soror- 
ities; College Avenue, Princeton Avenue, Nor- 
wich Road, Knox Road, serve as addresses for 
the remaining Greek homes. 

Living with a group of people your own age, 
people who become as close as your sisters in a 
sorority or brothers in a fraternity, creates an in- 
timate and homelike atmosphere. Your house 
provides many advantages: meals served in a 
tamily style, rugs covering the floors, and com- 
fortable chairs ready for your comfort. 

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

Extracurricular, Social and 
Religious Life 

Organized student activities are recognized 
and encouraged for the growth of your leader- 
ship and citizenship skills. Opportunities are 
open in student government, fraternities, soror- 
ities, special interest clubs, civic groups, service 
organizations, professional organizations recrea- 
tional organizations, religious clubs, and musical 
organizations. You may be interested in joining 
the band or the staff of one of the student publi- 
cations. You may be interested in athletics, or 
l^erhaps you will want to become a member of 
a club or society which has a primary interest in 
the informal investigation of an academic spe- 
cialty. Interested faculty personnel are active in 
all of these groups. 

The Student Government Association repre- 
sents all students and operates under an ap- 
proved constitution and by laws. The Associated 
W^omen Students, in cooperation wath the Dean 
of \Vomen, is concerned with matters pertaining 
to women students. The Men's League, in coop- 
eration with the Dean of Men, is concerned with 
matters j^ertaining to men students. 

The University Band Is under the super- 
vision of the Department of Music and is com- 



78 



posed of four groups: the Marching Band, tlie 
Symphonic Band, the Air Force ROTC Band, 
and the Pep Band. 

Five student communications and pubHca- 
tion media are operated with faculty guidance 
and the general supervision of the Committee 
on Student Publications and Communications. 
They are: The Diamondback, the campus news- 
paper; the Terrapin, the student yearbook; The 
Old Line, a magazine of humor, literature, and 
art; the M Book, the student handbook; Expres- 
sion, the campus literary magazine; and WMUC, 
the campus radio station. 

Student Government Association 

The Student Government Association is fa- 
shioned after our national government having 
all three branches and a similar division of pow- 
ers. The fourteen SGA Cabinet officers include 
the Student Body President, Vice President, Sec- 
retary, Treasurer, Men's League President, As- 
sociated Women Students' President, all four 
class presidents, both the Independent Men's 
Representative 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 originating in the legislature in 
much the same way as does the President of 



79 



the United States. Bills tan be vetoed, pocketed, 
passed, or amended. Of course the Cabinet may 
originate bills which then go to the legislature.

Judicial Branch 

The judicial branch of the SGA is structured 
with a Central Student Court and several lower 
judicial boards. The Central Student Court is 
staffed with nine justices (five men and four 
women) selected from interested applicants 
from the junior and senior classes. The justices 
are selected so as to form a judiciary w^hich is 
representative of undegraduate students in gen- 
eral. By constitutional provision, Greek, resi- 
dence-hall, day-dodger, and independent seg- 
ments of the student body are insured represen- 
tation. This year, Douglas Worrall has been 
named Chief Justice of the Central Student 
Court. His task is to preside over hearings in- 
volving constitutional disciplinary and/or ap- 
pellate cases involving undergraduate students at 
the University. 

Men's League Judicial Board, IFC Judicial 
Board and RMA Judicial Board exist to hear 
conduct cases which involve male students. Each 
functions within a jurisdictional area assigned 
I)y SGA and the Judiciary Office. The Chief 
Justices for these Boards in the coming year are 
Steve Bennett, James Humphrey and Thomas 
Brown respectively.

Associated Women Students 

AWS is YOU — daydodger, independent or 
sorority woman! The Associated Women Stu- 
dents is the governing- body for women students 
at the University of Maryland. On a national 
level our AWS is an active affiliate of the Inter- 
Collegiate Association of Women Students. AWS 
sets up and enforces standards of conduct and 
residence rides, sponsors cultural and social ac- 
tivities 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, Or- 
]3iians' Party and Summer Job Forum also draw 
campus-wide attention. 

If you are interested in working on these 
committees or finding out more about AWS you 
may contact Elaine Ricca, 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 Presi- 
dent, 1st and 2nd Vice Presidents, Secretary, 
Treasurer, representatives from each class coun- 



85 



cil, and standing conunitLee chairmen. Us duties 
are to coordinate the activities ot the Dormitory 
Council, which is concerned with the problems 
ot dormitory living; the Sorority Council which 
deals with the problems of sorority living; the 
[udicial Board, the governing board tor campus 
women's regulations; and the Academic Board, 
responsible 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 representa- 
tive government extending into many phases of 
the Maryland coed's life. 

Men's League 

"W^e, the male students of the University of 
Afaryland, in order to promote the educational, 
cultural, social, and athletic welfare and interest 
of the men of the University, . . ." 

Each year the Men's League sponsors a num- 
ber 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 un- 
der the Men's League. To handle the problems 
that such undertakings create, the Student Gov- 
ernment has seen fit to establish the Men's Exec- 
LUive Council. 



86 



The Executive Council meets weekly to dis- 
cuss and plan the programs to be presented. The 
representatives to the Executive Council are 
elected by the student body-at-large in the an- 
nual general elections. Suggestions are brought 
to the attention of the Executive Council. Any 
action relevant to the undergraduate male stu- 
dent is considered by the Executive Council. 
The Men's League Executive Council also repre- 
sents the interests of the male student on com- 
mittees. For further interests of the students, 
the Men's League also has established the Stu- 
dent Court which is subordinate to the Central 
Student Court. 

The Men's League Student Court reviews, 
regulates and exerts jurisdiction concerning vio- 
lations of men's rules as set forth by the Student 
Government Constitution or the Administration. 
The Men's League Student Court passes its find- 
ings and recommendations on to the Administra- 
tion and acts as the enforcement body for the 
action taken. 

In the s])ring 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. 

You are encouraged to take a part in your 
Student Government. Student government was 
created and acts in your interests and for your 



87 



beneiit, and that participation which you give 
it will help it realize its goals.

"Ten Nights in a Bar Room." 

Everyone is welcome, and needed, at U.T. 
To be eligible for membership, a student is re- 
quired to work three productions and ten hours

see that we are a rather musical campus. Choral 
Avorks take the spotlight, particularly at Christ- 
mas 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 Sunday before 
classes let out. Along the same line are the Men's 
Glee Club and the Women's Chrous produc- 
tions. The annual "Ceremony of Carols" by the 
Women's Chorus, following the AWS Christmas 
pageant, adds a seasonal glow to the campus.

Events 

The end product of your University exper- 
ience cannot be measured in terms of knowledge 
gained in the classroom alone. Your career here 
at Maryland will be packed full of much that is 
new and enlightening. The opportunities for 
extra-curricular enrichment offered by the Uni- 
versity's student organizations are varied and 
the SGA Cultural Committee seeks to bring the 
student body a well diversified program of at- 
tractions each year. Coffee hours with fac- 
ulty members informally discussing their special 
interests are offered by AWS and are also held in 
individual dorms and Greek Houses. By taking 
advantage of this cultural program, you can as- 
sure yourself of a well rounded college exper- 
ience. 

Outstanding evenings in popular entertain- 
ment are offered by such organizations as the In- 
terfraternity Council, the Senior Class, and the 
Resident Men's Association. These groups have 
brought Harry Belafonte, Bob Hope, the King- 
ston Trio, Ella Fitzgerald, and the Limelighters 
to campus in the past years, and will continue 
this tradition in the future. 

Campus Elections 

Maryland students are represented by two 
political parties. Old Line and Free State, which 



115 



Ixittle for campus offices each spring. Similar to 
national elections, each political party holds a 
nominating convention, and campaigning takes 
place through voting day. Stuclents elect all

ment offices. 

Campus Chest 

Campus Chest, a student committee oversee-

money. The funds are received from such ac- 
tivities as the Sophomore Carnival, Donkey Bas- 
ketball 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 contributed to him. A

The sophomore class sponsors a carnival. 
Every residence has an opportunity to enter a

116 



Chest. Concessions and original shows spotlight 
this event, and prizes are given for the best 
booths. The Sophomore Prom is always a high- 
light ot the year. 

Juniors plan a donkey basketball game at 
which campus leaders compete against one 
another. This event also helps to raise money 
lor Campus Chest. Each class has a dance, but 
one of the biggest of the year is the Junior Prom, 
held at the Indian Spring Country Club. At this 
time Miss Maryland is crowned.

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

As alumnae and collegiates turn out for 
Homecoming, girls' dormitories and sororities

dium with an array of floats. Climaxing this day

ATH LETICS 



H 




The University recognizes the importance of 
the physical development of all students and, in 
addition to the required physical education for 
freshmen and sophomores, sponsors a compre- 
hensive intercollegiate and intramural program. 
Students are encouraged to participate in com- 
petitive athletics and to learn the skill of games 
that may be carried on after leaving college. The 
intramural program, which covers a large variety 
of sports, is conducted by the Physical Education 
Department for both men and women. 

The Council on Intercollegiate Athletics 
sponsors and supervises a full program of inter- 
collegiate athletics in every form necessary to 
meet the needs of the student body. By keeping 
this program in proper bounds, it becomes an in- 
cidental feature of University life. Each student 
is encouraged to participte in the program, 
either as an athlete or as a spectator. A strong 
intercollegiate program creates the incentives for 
extensive participation in the intramural pro- 
gram and, further, the program furnishes a rally- 
ing point of common interest for students, alum- 
ni, and faculty. 

The University is a member of the Atlantic 
Coast Conference, the National Collegiate Ath- 
letic Association, the United States Intercolleg- 



131 



iate Lacrosse Association, the Intercollegiate 
Amateur Athletic Association of America, and 
cooperates with other national organizations in 
the promotion of amateur athletics. 

The University has an activities building 
which contains a modern gymnasium, a swim- 
ming pool, training facilities for indoor sports, 
physical education laboratories, and an arena; 
also a large armory; a modern stadium with a 
running track; a number of athletic fields; tennis 
courts; golf course; baseball diamonds; and a 
gymnasium and swimming pool for women. 

Fall Sports 

If you aren't already sufficiently confused by 
the expansiveness of the University and the com- 
plexity of its activities, football coach Tom Nu- 
gent will do the job when he introduces his 
magic "I" formation as the Terps take the field 
this season. The men to watch this year are: 
Tom Brown, John Hannigan, and Ernie Arizzi. 

The best brand of soccer in the country also 
highlights the Maryland fall sports scene. The 
Terps have never lost the ACC Championship 
since entering nine years ago. 

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



132 



Winter Sports 

When the cold winds and the snow arrive, 
Maryland's athletic activities move inside to the 
Cole Fieldhouse where one of the Terpland'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. Bob Eicher and Jerry Green- 
span are two returning lettermen. 

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

The indoor track squad, which has become 
the power of the A.C.C, defends its 7th straight 
title this winter. The Maryland rifle squad levels 
its sights toward an unbeaten season as it opens 
up its schedule in the Armory. 

Many fans enjoy the man-to-man combat 
provided by Maryland's perennial A.C.C. cham- 
pion wrestling team. 

Spring Sports 

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 respect at Maryland. The Terra- 
pin stickmen are perennially rated within the 
top four teams in the nation. 



133 



Maryland has one of the up and coming base- 
ball teams in the A.C.C. With a tough freshman 
team coming up, the Terps prospects are even 
brighter for this year. 

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. 

Jntramurals 

Intramurals have grown from obscurity to a 
major campus activity. Last year over 3,0t)0 
Greeks and Independents participated in touch 
football, basketball, softball, wrestling, golf, ten- 
nis, cross country, bowling, weightlifting, bad- 
minton, volley ball, table tennis, and others. 

Freshman Sports 

Freshmen are all invited to participate in 
freshman athletics which are stepping stones to 
varsity sports. Such sports as football, basket- 
ball, 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 Diamondbach.

MARYLAND VICTORY SONG 

Maryland we're all behind you, 
Wave high the black and gold. 
For there is nothing half so glorious 
As to see our team victorious. 
We've got the steam boys, 
We've got the team boys. 
So keep on fighting, don't give in! 
M-A-R-Y-L-A-N-D (yell) 
Maryland will win!
