"Welcome Freshmen ! " This perennial phrase of official greeting often
seems to the fledgling college student to be nothing more than a facile
but hollow extension of hospitality, an empty form of friendship in
what originally appears to be a vortex of chaotic friendlessness.
Your arrival at the University signifies an entrance into a greater
reality than you have hitherto experienced. This extension of reality,
becoming one of over 14,000 students, is by its very nature a dazzling
experience. This is not something that should be unduly feared, but
is a prerequisite for growth.
It is considered good form to exhort the entering Freshman to greater
academic achievement so that he can revitalize the tottering society into
which he will soon be thrust. Rather I tell you . . . Work predominately
for yourself. If you fail, it will not matter for whom you strived. If
you succeed, you will benefit all.
Heritage and Tradition
Maryland U. has a host of traditions
Related to social-academic conditions.
Start with the chapel, "Maryland, My Maryland" chime.
That wakes you each morning by ringing the time.
An early ramble on the muddy mall
Takes you to breakfast at the Dining Hall,
Of if you commute you may park for free
On secluded spaces in Parking Lot "B".
Now it's to classes that you do head
With visions of undisturbed slumber in bed.
After a morning of writing down facts.
You head to the library to study in "stacks."
Lunch in the SU where old friends meet.
Followed by bowling is always a treat.
At the voting machine you make your selection
Of candidates running in the Frosh election.
You II soon learn of campus politics in fine.
Especially our parties — Free State and Old Line.
A walk to Cole Field House and mascot Testudo,
Where all sports occur from swimming to judo.
The teams are all dressed in red and in white
Our athletic colors for the victory fight.
Don't forget publications, take a good look
At Terrapin, Diamondback, and this M-Book!
Throughout your four years, prepare to spend
Time at Maryland on the weekend —
The thrill of winning Homecoming game
As the team rockets to Orange Bowl fame!
You'll enjoy yourself at the IFC Ball,
As well as Soph Carnival and Harmony Hall,
Greek Week, serenades. Ugly Man and the rest.
Dances and kites for the Campus Chest.
As winter rolls on, you'll find you're gliding
Down snowy hills as you go tray sliding.
Registration to dinks, classes, finals in June
Bring your frosh year to an end too soon!
But traditions at Maryland will always be
A most important part of the University.
You, the incoming freshman, may wonder what the three dates found
on the Maryland University seal signify. They denote three main his-
torical events connected with the founding of our university.
An interesting fact, of which many people are not aware, is that the
initial step began in Baltimore. Dr. John Beale Davidge and two other
doctors, who were instructing in the Anatomical Department of an
embryonic medical school, appealed to the Maryland Legislature to
ratify a charter for a larger, more permanent medical school for the
Baltimore area. The Maryland Legislature approved their charter on
December 18, 1807. This event marked the founding of the fifth medical
school in the United States.
The founding of the medical college in Baltimore proved influential
during the first century of its existence, for the School of Law (1823),
the fourth to be foundec
(1882), the first one
among the maj
tural college i(
phere. The sitl

The Morrill Land-(
that funds derived from seiimg iiiiLiaimec
agricultural colleges. The Hatch Act of 1887 provided for the establish-
ment of experimental stations in connection with the Land Grant Col-
leges. In 1914 the college became wholly a state institution, and in 1916
changed its name to the Maryland State College of Agriculture.
The third date on our seal is 1920. This is the year the Maryland
State College of Agriculture merged with the Maryland Medical School
in Baltimore and became the University of Maryland. The merger re-
sulted in pure and practical research which has branched into multiple
areas, so that today its service to state and nation has reached heights
undreamed of by our founders just a century ago.
This is our heritage and our history. It is one worth noting, but you,
the Class of 1967, will help to build an even greater history for our
university in the future.

Laws from Washington College in 1954, and a Doctor of Laws from
Johns Hopkins University in 1955.

YOU, the new student are about to start your college career at the
University of Maryland. This school has many opportunities to offer
if you will make the most of them. However at this school there are
many regulations decided on for your benefit. Remember you are now
a University of Maryland Freshman.
Registration will be one of the busiest times in your life. The constant
waiting in never ending lines, making up tentative schedules, and the
huge numbers of people constantly surrounding you, all typify regis-
tration. The average load of credits for a freshman is 16 credits. You
should know, before registration, exactly what you want to take, etc.
Making an appointment to see your advisor before registration week is
Many people have different times when they can study and work.
When making up the schedule, you should keep this in mind. Some
students like to schedule all their classes in the morning so that they
will be free in the afternoon; but others schedule all their classes in the
afternoons so that they can devote their mornings to study or sleep.
Registration is one week long, however each student has a day as-
signed to him according to his last name. Just keep cool, calm, and
collected, and registration will be very easy.
The University of Maryland believes strongly that academic grades
should reflect more than a student's performances on an examination.
Students are allowed no automatic "cuts" or absences from class. Any
more than three unexcused absences in a class will be reported to your
You are entitled to make the Dean's list if you have a 3.5 or over for
the semester. First semester freshmen, making a 3.5 or better, their first
semester may become members of the freshman honor aries. If you have
an over-all average of 3.5 for the entire year, you can become a member
of the honoraries also.
After six weeks of school, if you are doing below "c" average work
in any of your subjects, both you and your parents will receive a notice
from your dean. You should make an appointment with your teacher
and find out how you can improve your mark. The mark on the dean's
slip has no bearing on your final grade.
Since you are a first semester freshman, you have 8 weeks in which
to drop a course. Go to your advisor when in doubt about dropping a
course; he is there to advise, counsel and guide you.
Probation is a very controversial subject, and it would be advisable
for you to read the book on General and Academic Regulations. This
book is sent to you in the mail, and it should be saved for future
' \. <r
The Student Government Association plays an integral part in the
coordination of activities in a large unitversity. At Maryland the SGA is
patterned after the national government, consisting of three branches:
executive, legislative and judicial.
The individual student is the most important factor in the effective
functioning of the SGA. He finances the operation of all student
activities and services through the $12 fee he pays in September, and
elects the people who represent him as officers. Therefore, you, the fresh-
men are urged to become and remain well informed concerning the
activities of the SGA.
The executive branch of the SGA, the cabinet, is responsible for policy
making. It acts on motions passed by the legislature and appoints people
to SGA committees and vacated positions.

body. Constitutional, disciplinary and appellate cases are heard by
The SGA and Judiciary Office assign the functions of the Judiciary
Boards under the Central Court. There are four in number: Men's
League Board, IFC Board, RMA Board and AWS Board.
Proposed legislation is submitted by the cabinet to the legislature
for initial action. Concerned primarily with finances, the legislature
reviews the recommendations from the Finance Committee and passes
the budget for the year. All freshmen are encouraged to attend meetings
and submit suggestions.

held in the early Fall.

To the Daydodger:
Who is the commuter? Of the thousands who commute many are
older persons returning to complete degrees. Many are married students
with off-campus jobs, interests and responsibilities. Only a significant
minority belong to the typical undergraduate group of young students
hoping for the broad educational experience of "going away to college".
This letter is addressed to this group. It is a compliment to you who
are willing to expend the special nervous and physical energy day-in-and-
day-out to meet these early morning transportation deadlines for an end
It is a challenge and a cautionary word to help you achieve your day
well spent. For you to get the most from your academic and personal
life you must take particular initiative and spend particular energy in
You must learn to read bulletin boards, read the University publica-
tions and read with a real desire to keep abreast of all necessary infor-
You will need particular initiative and persistence in getting direct
help from the persons most able to do this whether in your college, the
Counseling Center, the office of Deans of Student Life or the Student
It takes effort to get to know students of different experiences £md
backgrounds but this is very important.
Perhaps you will be lucky enough to plan your study time efficiently
and arrange your transportation so that you can meet the resident
students in activities of common interest and special skills.
If not, I recommend association with the University Commuters Asso-
ciation, the UCA as we call it.
The extra-curricular schedules of commuters and residents are about
as alike as negative and positive prints of the same picture. What one
does by day the other does in the evening, and vice versa.
The UCA tries to plan a schedule of special interests and social life
which fits the commuting student and also gives him an opportunity to
meet the resident who is on campus on week-ends. You do not have to
have any special skills to belong to UCA except that of being a person
who wants to grow as a college educated person and enjoy the benefits
of the best in college life.
This group, with your help, will continue to develop a new image of
the commuter on campus. We hope it will be that of:
1) an enthusiastic participant
2) a rational and intelligent human being who values social partici-
pation and therefore is considerate, amiable, responsible, attractive in
dress and manners, being concerned about his personal contribution.
3 ) is socially concerned and therefore concerned for the image of
the group to which he belongs and the service it can offer to the whole
I hope I will see you in the UCA.

Pedestrians always have the right of way. On the other hand, it's
only fair to drivers for pedestrians to cross at the corners.

The Commuters' Association was organized by a group of students
who felt that Daydodgers, by virtue of their nonresident problems, had
much in common to gripe and laugh about, and much to work on as a

Many of you will find your warmest welcome in the dormitory, where
you may meet lifelong friends. You and your roommate will be pro-
vided with beds, desks, bureaus, and closets. Curtains, rugs, bedspreads,
and any other personal touches that you care to add will make a room
you can be proud of. You may avail yourself of a linen and towel serv-
ice. Bring a pillow, wastebasket, clock, and an iron. Don't forget ash-
trays if you smoke! A radio or record player will sooth your jangled
nerves at the end of a hard day of classes.
Though you may spend much of your time studying, you can relax
by attending desserts given in the recreation room. These parties are
joint functions of men's and women's dorms. Light refreshments are
served and you may dance to records. Desserts provide an opportunity
for university men and women to get to know each other. You may
want to join one of the intramural teams organized in the dorms. This
will give you an opportunity to exercise your skill in basketball, volley-
ball, or, for the men, football.
You can study in your room or in the special study rooms provided
in many dormitories. Before the first round of tests begins, find copies
of your instructors' old tests ! Some of the dorms have a file of old tests
which may be legally consulted.
Your housemother will inform you about sign-out procedures and
quiet-hour regulations. Remember that she is there to help you; get to
Men should call for women in the lobby. Women will be paged by
the girl at the main desk. Observe good manners in the lobby, and
don't forget to put out that cigarette before entering the lobby! Women
may entertain friends in the recreation room which is provided with a
piano, ping pong table, and television.
Curfew hours vary as to your year in college. Freshmen women have
3 overnights a semester; sophomores, 6; juniors, 9; and seniors, un-
limited. All weekends are free. Men have no curfews, but may not leave
the dorm after a certain hour.
Women may have friends stay overnight with them in the dorm for a
fee of $.50 or $1 if linens are provided. Be sure to request permission
from your housemother at least 24 hours in advance. The same residence
policy follows for men. Check with the residence manager in Harford
Hall or the Director of Residence in the North Administration Building.
Each floor of the dormitory has two phones on which you may talk
to your friends. One is a campus extension and may be used to make
on-campus calls as well as to receive them. The other phone transmits
off-campus calls. Pay stations are found in most dorms, and you can
dial off-campus numbers from here.
Calls may be received from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Mondays, to 11 p.m.
on weekends, and to 10:30 p.m. on other nights. Be considerate when
making calls and don't talk for an unreasonable amount of time !

Greeks! That's a term you'll hear many times. A Greek is someone
who is a member of a fraternity or sorority. This leads to the question,
What is a fraternity or sorority? A college Greek organization is a group
of girls (or boys) banded together for social and educational purposes,
and dedicated to common ideals.
Greeks play an important role in the campus community. In politics,
sports, publications, honoraries — all facets of college life, Greeks are
active. Each group supports a nation-wide philanthropic project to-
gether with other chapters across the nation. Projects vary from helping
the blind to aiding an entire mountain settlement.
Great emphasis is placed on scholarship. High scholarship is encouraged
by study programs, tutoring services, and trophies. The all-sorority
average is above the all-women's average and the all-fraternity average
is usually above the all-men's.
Fraternity and sorority houses are located across Route 1 from the
main campus on Fraternity Row, and on College Avenue, Princeton
Avenue, Norwich Road, and Knox Road. Within these houses lifelong
friendships are made, card games are lost, study sessions run into the
wee morning hours, and problems and joys are shared.
A word about rush. If you desire to become a member of a sorority,
you must go through rush. This is a period of social activity in which
you are given an opportunity to become acquainted with sorority
Rush is divided up into sets of parties. The first set is a series of
open-houses. Every rushee must visit every house. Failure to do so
disqualifies the rushee from pledging. After open-houses there are
two sets of informal parties and then on the last night Preference Teas
What to wear? Maryland weather is unpredictable. If the weather
is warm, dark fall cottons are perfect. You will need a dressy dress
and heels for Preference Teas. TIP: Carry your heels and wear flats
marching around to open houses. You'll do plenty of walking. Above
all, just relax and enjoy rush.
Sororities have many activities. Fireside chats with favorite pro-
fessors, "candlelights", and the Pledge Debut are only a few.
Candlelights are a favorite custom in some houses. This is a
momentous occasion when a candle is passed around a circle of curious
girls and some girl who has been dying to reveal her secret blows it
out, indicating she has become pinned to some lucky fraternity man.
What is Panhellenic? Panhellenic is an organization composed of
representatives of the 18 sororities at Maryland. It is the governing
body, which determines the rules concerning membership selection,
pledging and initiation. All activities of Panhellenic aim to foster
close cooperation and to increase the bond of friendship between
sororities and non-sorority women, the faculty and administration, and
the campus as a whole.
President of Panhellenic for 1963-64 is Linda Pollack.
To the Freshmen Coeds:
It is with a great deal of pleasure that I extend a sincere welcome
to you on behalf of not only the Panhellenic Association, but also
of every sorority member on Maryland's campus. During the next
few years you will be formulating the attitudes and ideals which
will guide your actions throughout the future.
You will be seeking and discovering your aims, your goals, and
your most lasting friendships. Through active participation in
the sorority system you will find the means to help you answer
your basic questions, meet your fundamental needs, and provide
you with your most enriching and rewarding experiences.
We know that your enthusiasm and interest will cause you to
seek what is most worthwhile at Maryland, and we are confident
that you will find what you are seeking in the Greek system. We
are all looking forward to meeting you during Rush!
Rushing lasts for a short period, usually one or two weeks at the
beginning of the fall semester. During this period both stag and dated
parties are held to give the rushee an opportunity to meet the fraternity
At registration the IFC will have a booth in the Armory. If you desire
to rush, sign up. This does not obligate you to go through rush. The
list is published, however, so that the fraternities know who is interested.
Boys can enter a fraternity house at anytime. If you would like to
see any house, just go up, knock on the door, and ask to be shown
around. The doors are always open.
Pledgeship? A young man learns more about his fraternity, accepts
a certain amount of responsibility, and comes to have a knowledge of the
attitudes, graces, and ideals that make his fraternity what it is during
the period of pledgeship.
Every fraternity has a certain special favorite social event of the
year such as the French party, Miami Beach party and the Civil War
party. Spring formals give both guys and gals a chance to really
When a boy gets pinned to a girl in some sorority, it is a common
practice for his fraternity to serenade the sorority. There is an exchange
of songs and occasionally the lucky girl gets a bouquet of roses.
The fraternities of the Md. campus are governed by the Inter-Fraternity
Council, the IFC. The IFC coordinates all fraternity activities including
rush, sports, social events, and scholarship.
Dave Nardo is the 1963-64 IFC president.

First of all, welcome to the U. of M. from the Inter-Fraternity
Council. These short lines will try to give you, the new arrival,
a glimpse at fraternity life, its purposes and its aim.
The Maryland fraternity system now numbers 23 social fra-
ternities. They range in size from approximately 15 members to
nearly 100. There is a fraternity to suit anyone's tastes, desires,
and pocket-book. Some fraternity houses are noted for their
social life, others for their athletic prowess in intra-murals, and
still others for their fine academic achievements.
The Maryland Inter-Fraternity Council has one aim — the better-
ment of the system. By joining in a "federation" a strong system
of individual fraternities can be maintained. Each individual house
is responsible to its members and maintains an autononomy and
personality apart from the system.
But by pooling its resources and talent the 23 Greek houses can
attain better scholarship, a superior rush system, good public rela-
tions, and, most important, strong individuals that arise out of a
day-to-day existence in a unique and wonderful group — the college
Many of the "big week-ends" are sponsored and planned by the IFC,
such as the IFC Ball, IFC Presents, and Greek Week. Last year Peter,
Paul and Mary entertained at IFC Presents.
During Greek Week almost every fraternity and sorority sponsors
an event. Competition is keen in such activities as the chariot race,
sports car derby, and the turtle race. The week is climaxed by the
IF Sing. Each group sings a song in competition in hopes of carrying
home a new addition to its trophy case.
In the area of scholarship the IFC offers awards, scholarships, and
grants. The first vice president heads a special committee that makes
studies and recommendations concerning fraternity scholarship.
Fraternities compete in all types of intramural sports ranging from
football to badminton. There is some athletic activiy in which everyone

Entertainment and Events
AWS Bridal Fair
The Associated Women Students organize a fair each spring, expressly
for the women students, which puts on display everything imaginable
for the bride and her new home.
Usually the Freshmen Class sponsors a campus wide Sadie Hawkins
Day Dance, in addition to their own Class Prom!
Each year the Sophomore Class sponsors a carnival, in which each
residence — Greek houses and dorms — enters a booth. All money is
given to Campus Chest. There are skits and games plus dancing in the
open for all. It's a long standing tradition of Maryland. The other class
highlight is the Sophomore Prom, which always features a name band.
Although each class has a dance, the Junior Prom is one of the biggest
events of the year. It is held at Indian Springs Country Club and always
features some well-known band. The crowning of Miss Maryland high-
lights the evening.
Each year the seniors sponsor a "Senior Class Presents". Famous
personalities come to the University and entertain thousands of students
at the Cole Field House. In previous years such entertainers as Jonathan
Winters, Bob Hope, and Peter, Paul and Mary have drawn large crowds
to this event. The price is usually about $2. The Senior Class climaxes
their college days with a Senior Banquet and Prom.
During one week in May all fraternities and sororities participate in
Greek Week to promote competition and unity. Many exciting activities
take place such as the ZBT Bike Race, ATO Chariot Race, SAE Jazz
Concert, Re-dedication, Sorority Olympics and the Boat Ride which
usually climaxes the week. Open Houses are held during the week by
the different houses.
Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity each year presents this musical interlude
to the campus. Greek barbershop quartets compete in Ritchie Coliseum
sometime during the Fall semester. Judging is done by the members of
the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop
The Battleaxe Award is given during intermission to honor the un-
sung heroine of the campus, the housemother. This is to express the
appreciation of housemothers and the winner is always presented with
a dozen roses and a trophy.
For an outstanding evening in popular entertainment, the Inter-
fraternity Council brings big name stars to the campus each year. In
past years the Kingston Trio, Harry Bellafonte, Ella Fitzgerald and
Roger Williams have brought capacity crowds to the Cole Field House.
These shows are financed and produced by the Interfraternity Council.
On the Thursday night during Greek Week, Delta Delta Deha Sorority
sponsors the Interfraternity Sing. The songs are recorded by RCA
Also at this time several honors are presented including the Morty
Cohen Award, the Hillock Award, Fraternity Man and Sorority Women
of the Year Awards, and the tapping of Diamond, the sorority honorary
and Kalegethos, the fraternity honorary.
Kappa Alpha Minstrel
Kappa Alpha Fraternity each year presents an exciting Cotton Pickers'
Minstrel. You are guaranteed to see many black faces, end men, and
hilarious entertainment at this yearly spring event. This show has been

a large crowd.

Years ago writers turned their quills and scrolls in for their modern
day tool — the typewriter — but deadlines still remain and must be met.
Here at the university four student publications and the student radio
station live constantly in a world where meeting deadlines is the order of
The Diamondback, the campus newspaper distributed four times a
week, holds an Open House twice a year, once in the fall and again
in the spring for anyone who is interested in just learning about their
school paper, but especially for those who want to work.
Freshmen are most welcome because your class forms the backbone
of the paper as reporters and copy editors and will eventually hold the
top positions. \i you are unable to attend the Open House and you
want to work for the paper, the DBK editorial offices in Room 101 or
the sports office in Room 105 of the Journalism Building are always
Just walk in or call extensions 258, 658 or 659 and speak to one of
the salaried editors — editor-in-chief, news editor, coordinator, make-up
editor, managing editor or the executive sports editor, and you will be
hired on the spot. No previous experience is necessary but is helpful.
Reporters work in a pool under the news editor and are assigned
approximately two stories a week. Copy editors choose which night of
the four during the week that suits their schedule — Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday or Wednesday nights. Copy editors are also urged to try to
go to the printers in Ellicott City, Maryland with the make-up editor and
the copy chief to better acquaint them with proofreading and make-up.
Getting the freshmen to know Maryland University and College Park
is the theme of this publication, the M-Book. The present staff is
composed mainly of freshmen and sophomores. The hope for the
future is that M-Book will be organized by freshmen and sophomores.
Applications for section editors and other positions should be made
in the fall in Dean Thomas Florestano's office in the Student Union.
The M-Book is distributed to all freshmen during Freshmen Orientation
Week and pre-coUege program during the summer.
Expression is the literary magazine on campus with its office in Room
10 of the Journalism Building. Editors of this publication, issued twice
a year, use short stories, poems, art work and photographs that are
submitted by the student body. Students are welcome on this staff as
copy editors and creative writers.
On your dial at 650 is the campus radio station WMUC. Auditions for
positions as newsmen, disc jockeys, continuity writers are held during
freshmen orientation week and the first two weeks of classes. For these
jobs no experience is required but those interested in the electrical and
technical angle must have had some experience.
WMUC is a member of the Intercollegiate Broadcasting Company.
The radio station operates on a seven day a week schedule. Sign on
time is 2:58 p.m. and Miss Midnight says good night when WMUC
signs off at 12:10 a.m. The station is located in Building FF in the
gulch and with the addition of coaxial cables WMUC will be able to
broadcast to more dorm areas around campus.
From September to April, Room 207 of the Journalism Building
houses photographers and editors busy meeting deadlines for the Terra-
pin, the student yearbook. Editor-in-chief Barbara Berger, layout
editor Linda Hanneman and copy editor Judy Favier are anxious to
meet anyone who is interested in writing for the yearbook.
Freshmen are welcome to join the Terrapin staff, and may do so just
by dropping in the Terrapin office and submitting an application. For
new staff members a period of training is first on the agenda. Then
you are assigned to a particular editor for definite assignments. The
yearbook is distributed in May.
All salaried editorial and business positions for these publications
and WMUC except M-Book are appointed by the Student-Faculty Senate
Committee on Publications in the spring. Other important positions are
filled by the respective editors from applications submitted. The $12
student activity fee included in tuition costs pays for the publications.
The University recognizes the necessity of physical development for
all students, and, in addition to the required physical education program
for freshmen and sophomores, sponsors intercollegiate and intramural
programs. Intramurals are composed of the Open League, the Fraternity
League, and the Women's Recreation Association.
Maryland is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, National
Collegiate Athletic Association, the United States InterCollegiate Lacrosse
Association, the InterCollegiate Amateur Athletic Association of America
and cooperates with other national organizations in the promotion of
The University has several activity centers. The main center is
Cole Field House, which contains a modern gymnasium, a swimming
pool, training facilities for indoor sports such as trampoline, physical
education laboratories, an arena, a modern stadium with a running track,
tennis courts, a golf course and baseball diamonds.
The women have access to Preinkert Field House. This contains a
gymnasium, swimming pool, tennis courts, archery range and softball
The M-Club is the organization of Maryland's athletic lettermen. It is
a social group, but sponsors such awards as the Outstanding Intramural
Athletic of the year, and several athletic scholarships.
The women's Recreation Association is the campus organization for
women's athletics. Every woman student is automatically a member
of the WRA, and can learn more about it from the Information please !
HANDBOOK sent to each freshman coed in the fall.
Intramurals and Interest Groups
All undergraduate men are eligible to play intramural sports. Teams
are set up in touch football, basketball, softball, wresding, golf, tennis,
ping pong, bowling, volleyball and other.
Information about intramurals may be obtained from Coach Kehoe
at the Intramural Office in the Armory or in your own residences.
Women's interest groups are directed by the WRA. These groups
include tennis, horseback riding, bowling, judo, ice skating, field hockey,
golf, basketball, lacrosse, fencing, and competition swimming.
Information concerning WRA interest groups can be obtained from
Miss Kessler at the WRA office or from the representative in your
Maryland's baseball fortunes will be governed by how well the hitting
attack supports an outstanding mound staff.
John Klvac, Jerry Vezendy, and Dick Koch make up probably the
outstanding staff in the ACC. The problem is hitting to back the fine
pitching. G. R. Harmeyer and Jim Watkins could supply a good deal
Coach Jack Jackson looks forward to the season with cautious
High hopes are held by Md. basketball followers this season with the
addition of the products of an outstanding freshman team which lost
but two games.
The Terrapins, who won only seven out of 21 contests last year, still
managed to cop the Washington city series, by beating George Washing-
ton twice and splitting with Georgetown.
Though Jerry Greenspan, Bob Eicher, and Bill Stasiulatis mainstays
for the last three years, are gone, big Scott Ferguson, 6'8" center,
looks like he can take over as the top-flight big man the Terps have lacked
in the last few years. Another of last year's starters, Phil Carlson, 6'4",
and letterman Sam McWilliams, 6'!", will add experience to the Terp
Up from the freshman team come three outstanding ballplayers who
should be of immediate help to Coach Bud Millikan. They are 6'4",
Gary Ward, a DeMatha high product, Neil Brayton, 6'4", and Rick
Wise 6'7". Brayton and Ward both averaged over 20 points a game
for the frosh.
A challenging schedule including the Air Force Academy and the
Naval Academy confronts a squad which will be missing five starters
from last year's team which finished with a 6-4 record.
In addition to the service academies and the regular Atlantic Coast
Conference opponents, the Terps will tackle perennial Eastern power
Though Walt Rock, Roger Shoals, Dave Crossan, and Tom Brown,
all top draft choices of the NFL, are gone, able replacements are avail-
able. Lou Bury and either John Boinis or Matt (Moe) Arbituna are
expected to be the tackles while Joe Ferrannte will probably fill Crossan 's
spot at guard. Daryll Hill, a transfer from the Naval Ac"ademy and the
first Negro to play football in the ACC, or Mike Simpson will fill Brown's
End appears to be the Terps' biggest weakness. Tom Rae has graduated
and Mike Funk has been transferred to quarterback. Andy Martin and
Jerry Osier must fill the gaps and a large part of the team's success will
depend upon how well they perform.
Coach Tom Nugent can relax when he comes to the QB spot. Last
year's ACC player of the year, Dick Shiner, returns and he will be ably
supported by Funk and a promising sophomore, Ray Woikowski.
Len Chivarini, the leading ground gainer in the ACC last year, will
fill one backfield position, and Ernie Arizzi, Jerry Fishman, and Bob
Burton will fight for the other.
Gene Feher, center the past two years, returns and is capably packed
by Ed Gilmore.
Nugent has junked his famous "P' formation and plans to go with the
pro-type flanker offense completely this year. The major weaknesses of
the team appear to be ine^tperience in the line, and a shortage of depth.
As usual, the Terps will be a threat for the national title. Army, Navy
and Johns Hopkins will be the main competition. Ray Altman, AU-
American last year, has graduated, but Bill Pettit will continue his fine
play and be the chief offensive threat of the Terrapins.
Coach Jack Faber looks for improved play over the course of the
season, and with a few breaks could take it all.
The Maryland soccer team, runners-up for the national championship
in 1962, return with another strong outfit. The Terrapins who lost only
to St. Louis 4-3 for the NCAA crown at St. Louis last November, had a
10-1 mark for the season, and although they suffer several key losses
they should have another championship calibre club.
Senior center-forward Richard Roe, the 6-3 strongboy who headed
and kicked in an ACC record-tying 26 goals is gone but Coach Doyle
Royal who was worried by inexperience last year has fewer of these
problems this season.
Tom Bowman is a likely candidate to take over for graduated goalie
Ron Williamson and co-captains for 1963 Jack Ruhs, a wingman, and
Hank Oustecky, a fullback, should carry equal parts of the offensive and
All-American Oyten Tertemiz on the line and another '62 standout
Ersin Bacinoglu along with Danny Kupchyk give the Terps a potent
offense. A difficult schedule is slated for the hooters with the usual ACC
opponents, plus Penn State, Pitt, Army and Navy, all national soccer
powers. Maryland has won 10 consecutive ACC championships and has
never lost an ACC soccer game.
The Terps pulled a mild upset when they won the conference meet at
Raleigh last March and tied for the ACC championship. This marked
the fourth consecutive year that Maryland either won the championship
outright or tied for it. Even more amazing is that Maryland has only
been engaged in competitive swimming for seven seasons.
Coach Bill Campbell has another strong club this coming season, and
if nothing else, the returnees are back with strong remembrances of the
62-33 pasting they pinned on Navy before a packed-in crowd at the
Cole Field House pool last January.
Diver Ron Squiers, an all-American last year, is back as are two other
stars, Kevin Gilson and Raoul Rebillard.
Maryland tennis prospects are extremely optimistic for this year. Not
one man will be missing from last year's team, which was one of the
best in school history.
Junior Jim Busick leads the Terps as one of the outstanding tennis
players in the ACC. The Terps strength does not end there however.
Tom Marcellino and Gene Gerber will be back for their last year of
Roger Flax, Vaughn Baker and Bob Ruhling, all lettermen, will
probably round out the Terp lineup.
The Terps had one of the best squads in the nation last year, but
graduation has seriously depleted the ranks of coach Jim Kehoe's squad
in several key events. John Belitza, the first collegian ever to vault
16 feet, is gone, as are three parts of a great mile relay, Dick Smith,
Chris Stauffer and Bill Gray. Smith was one of the best half milers
ever at the University and Stauffer, an all-around star was a fine quarter-
miler and hurdler.
Coach Sully Krouse, whose teams have won ten consecutive ACC
championships and forty-six straight ACC matches, returns another
good squad. Bob Kopnisky, the 157 pounder who was voted the ACC
tournament's outstanding wrestler as a sophomore last year, leads
the returnees, who include Mandy Soto (167), Marshall Dauberman
(177), Tim Geiger (191) and Gary Wikander (Heavyweight) . All were
ACC champs and a strong freshman outfit bolsters the Terp picture.
On their way to a 6-2 season, the Terrapins won four ACC matches and
defeated arch-rivals Army and Navy by identical 17-8 scores. Only
Pitt and Penn State edged the Terps, and both of these matches were
held on away mats.
The cheerleaders add color and spirit to the sports events at Maryland.
The cheerleaders are selected by tryouts held annually in the fall. The
captain of the cheerleaders is Merrily Krause of Kappa Kappa Gamma.
The University of Maryland color guard is a precision marching
group composed of five regular members. They perform during half-
time at all home football games. Tryouts are usually held in the Spring.
The captain for 1963 is Robin Boucher and can be located at the Alpha
Chi Omega house.
The Maryland Majorettes are made up of six girls who perform during
half-time with the Maryland Band at football games. Tryouts for major-
ettes are held during the Band practice week in September. Captain
of majorettes is Carolyn Brown of Delta Delta Delta.
