It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to
the University of Maryland. As freshmen, you are on
the threshold of a most important phase of your
development as an individual.
The administration, faculty and staff are dedi-
cated to the task of giving you all possible assistance
in your development and the State of Maryland has
provided the physical facilities to insure that you
have the best possible academic climate of learning.
How well you succeed in your educational
endeavors during the next four years depends on how
much personal effort you are willing to exert.
Your aims should be as high as your learning
capacity will allow.
Wilson H. Elkins
POINTS OF PRIDE
Each year the University is highly recognized for the out-
standing academic achievements won by its students, facuhy
members, and facihties. The year 1965 is no exception, for again
Maryland has won many honors.
Phi Beta Kappa: On December 16, 1964 a chapter of Phi Beta
Kappa, an academic society for students in liberal arts with a 3.5
overall average for their college career, was installed at the
Cyclotron: The University of Maryland was recognized for the
excellence of its high energy physics faculty and program by an
award from the Atomic Energy Commission for a 100 million volt
cyclotron. This cyclotron was the only one granted to a university
by the AEC during the past year. It represents a great monetary
investment and will require two years to construct and install.
Guggenheim Fellowships: During 1965, four University of Mary-
land faculty members were awarded Guggenheim Fellowships.
Paul K. Conkin, Associate Professor of History
Jack Colvard Jones, Professor of Entomology
Jerry B. Marion, Professor of Physics
George A. Snow, Professor of Physics
In respect to numbers of fellowships, the University is among the
18 leading institutions in the nation and is in a class with Brown
University, the University of Texas and the University of Wis-
Comparative Literature Studies: A quarterly publication of the
Comparative Literature program, edited by Alfred Owen Aldridge,
head of the department at Maryland, Comparative Literature
Studies features articles contributed by eminent American and
European scholars on literary history and the history of ideas.
Through this journal the University has gained recognition in the
United States and abroad as an outstanding literary center.
The University of Maryland began in Baltimore in 1807 as the
University of Baltimore. The College of Medicine was the first
school of the University.
The University grew in 1823 with the addition of the School of
Law, the fourth law school opened in the United States.
In 1882 there was a high point in the University's history when
the School of Dentistry was founded. This was the first such school
in the world.
Louisa Parsons, with the cooperation of Florence Nightingale,
instituted the School of Nursing in 1889.
The last addition to the Baltimore campus before it was
united with the College Park branch was the College of Pharmacy
in 1904. Since that time the College of Social Work has also been
The College Park campus began in 1856 when a group of
southern Maryland farmers purchased the estate of Charles B.
Calvert, Esquire, and founded the Maryland Agricultural College.
It was financed by selling stock for $25.00 per share.
The College was the first school to benefit from the Morrill
Land Grant Act passed by the United States Congress in 1863 and
from subsequent federal aid to higher education. The College thus
became in part a state institution.
Due to a disastrous fire in 1912 and a decrease in the enroll-
ment because of the war, the College found it necessary to apply
for further state aid. In 1914 the State Legislature bought all the
stock in the College which then became the Maryland State
College, a part of the State's educational system.
The University of Maryland was formed in 1920 when Mary-
land State College and the University of Baltimore were merged.
Since theh both campuses have expanded greatly with the acquire-
ment of more land and the building of more administration build-
ings, class and laboratory buildings, dormitories and recreation
In 1949 the University established the College of Special and
Continuation Studies in various countries of Europe. Students
abroad are able, by this program, to further their studies.
The University of Maryland, as all colleges, abounds in tra-
ditions which help to create a treasure of memorable experiences
to be remembered in later years by its students.
One of the first traditions a new student meets is the friendly
atmosphere which makes the campus seem much smaller than it
really is. A cheerful smile and a friendly "hello" are often seen
and heard while walking between classes.
Students rush to class in order to arrive before the chapel
chimes play "Maryland My Maryland" and ring out the hour
before classes begin. Sometimes the walk is a little sloppier than
usual as students splash across the mall after a rainstorm.
The Kappa Alpha Theta kite flying eontest is an annual spring
tradition to be remembered by students who worked long hours
constructing their kites and then competed with others to see
which kite flew the best.
Tray sliding is one of the newer traditions at the University.
With snow on the slopes and plenty of trays (much to the dining
hall's dismay) to go around, this winter sport has become very
Naturally, since the University is in an historic area, there is
a "someone slept here" house. Our "someone" was General
Lafayette who visited at Rossborough Inn, the oldest building on
campus, which is found on Baltimore Boulevard, and now serves
as a faculty dining area.
Behind Rossborough Inn is the wishing well. As with other
wishing wells, a penny brings good luck!
Testudo, Maryland's five hundred pound terrapin mascot,
is perched on his pedestal in front of McKeldin Library. From
there he watches students lounging, studying, and singing folk
songs on the mall during beautiful fall and spring days.
The story of the University's traditions would not be complete
without mention of the Kissing Tunnel. By tradition a couple must
kiss on their first trip to this secluded spot which is found under
Chapel Drive in front of the Chapel.
Traditional events sponsored by the Student Government
highlight every year. Homecoming, Parent's Day, Cultural events,
Class Proms, Senior Class Presents, the AWS Bridal Fair, and
many other functions are held for the students enjoyment.
Greek sponsored events also occur yearly. Many students
enjoy listening to sorority and fraternity members harmonizing
barbershop style at Harmony Hall and singing as a group in the
Interfraternity Sing. Spring and Fall Greek Weeks, held each
year, offer opportunities for the campus at large to see the Greek
System working together.
Not as amusing but quiet as traditional are six week's exams
(hourlies) and finals which never cease to plague M.U.'s students.
The Administration coordinates and directs all phases of
University life. Every freshman should be familiar with the mem-
bers of the administration and with their responsibilities. They are
always anxious to meet students, listen to their views, and help
them with their problems.

Diligent scholarship is a responsibihty of the college stu-
dent; the Freshman, particularly is responsible for taking the
required courses, taking sufficient credits, and planning ahead.
Classes are either of 50 or 75 minute duration (the 50 minute
classes are conducted on a 3 day-a-week basis and the 75 minute
classes on a 2 day-a-week basis). If the instructor is late, students
are required to wait 20 minutes for deans, 15 minutes for doctors,
and 10 minutes for all instructors before dismissing themselves.
There are no automatic "cuts" (absences) for freshmen (with the
exception of second semester freshmen who have attained a 3.5
average for the preceding semester). A report is sent into the
student's dean if he has more than 3 unexcused absences. Ex-
cused absences include illness, death in the immediate family,
and participation in University activities at the request of the
University authorities. Instructors may penalize students for un-
excused absences. Upperclassmen, (soph., jr., sr.) are allowed
unlimited cuts in courses classified as non-participation courses
(those in which the student does not actively participate as part of
the instruction). The University urges all students to attend classes
A two hour exam is held at the end of each semester for each
course taken. No notes or books are allowed at finals. Two or
three exams (called "hourlies") are usually given in each course
during the semester. Only a student with a legal excuse will be
allowed to make up an exam he has missed.
The following symbols are used for marks: A, B, C, D,
passing; F, failure; I, incomplete. In computing the scholastic
average the numerical values are assigned as follows: A-4, B-3,
All Freshmen doing below "C" level work after the first six
weeks of school receive slips from the dean. A copy is also sent to
the student's parents. Although a dean's slip has no bearing on the
student's final grade, it is advisable for the student to consult with
his instructor to find out how he can improve his work.
REPEATS AND DROPOUTS
Both the original grade and the new grade will be posted on
the student's transcript when a course is repeated. In computing
the overall average the two grades are averaged together.
First semester freshmen are permitted to wait eight weeks
before dropping a course. All other students are allowed three
weeks. The student's academic advisor and dean must approve
A student wishing to change colleges must have a minimum
of a 2.0 overall average. If the student's average is unsatisfactory,
he will be placed under the control of the Office of Intermediate
Registration (O.I.R.). Under the O.I.R. program a student is given
one, or at the most, two semesters to absolve his trial or probation-
ary status and become eligible for admission into the new college.
The student must consult his new dean upon transferring colleges.
ACADEMIC AND JUNIOR STANDING
In order to achieve Junior standing a student must maintain
an average of "C" with the minimum of 56 semester hours not
including P.E., Health, or depending on the college, R.O.T.C.
If a student fails to make Junior standing by the end of his fourth
semester, he is allowed one semester grace. If he has not achieved
Junior standing by the end of this probationary semester, dis-
THE COUNSELING CENTER
The University's Counseling Center is located in Shoemaker
Hall and is maintained to assist students not only to better under-
stand themselves but also to develop improved methods for
dealing with vocational choices as well as educational and per-
sonal problems. The Center provides an extensive program on
reading and study skills, given on an individual basis for six
weeks, and is offered at the beginning and middle of each semes-
ter. When appropriate, psychological tests in the areas of ability,
aptitude, interest, and personality are administered. The Advisory
and Testing Fee, which all students pay at registration, entitle
them to these services without further charge.
Many opportunities for free tutoring are offered by groups
on campus. Among these are Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta
Sigma, the women's and men's freshman scholastic honoraries.
Individual departments also offer tutoring- for which a nominal
fee may be charged.
A freshman who achieves a 3.5 average for his first semester
or a 3.5 cumulative average for the year is eligible for member-
ship in a freshman scholastic honorary. Any student attaining a
3.5 semester average is placed on the Dean's List. An Honor's
Convocation is held every fall honoring all students who have
maintained a 3.5 average or better for the preceding year.
At least 120 semester hours are required for graduation. An
overall average of "C" or 2.0 is required for graduation in all
colleges. See the dean of your college to learn its requirements.

Regulation Booklet published by the University, which may be

AH commuters are urged to sign up for carpools in the Armory
during registration week. Mimeographed hsts of drivers and riders
can be obtained in the Student Union.
The University assumes no responsibihty for car accidents,
so it is most important that drivers have adequate insurance.
During registrati(m week all cars must be registered. Parking
stickers are issued and must be kept on the cars at all times.
Failure to do so may result in a $5.00 fine. Between 7:00 A.M.
and 4:45 P.M. parking is allowed in all lots other than those
marked "reserved at all times". There is a 13.00 fine for parking
on unassigned lots during the day.
The Baltimore-Washington Greyhound buses run Monday
through Saturday every hour, (slight changes on Sundays and
holidays), with extra buses during rush hours. The buses stop
at Bladensburg, Hyattsville, Riverdale, College Park (on Rt. 1 in
front of the Varsity Grill), Berwyn, and Plant Industry. D.C. transit
buses run between College Park and Mt. Ranier, Langley Park,
Silver Spring, and Potomac Park (Hollywood).
When driving on campus, be sure to obey all Stop signs and
speed limits. Pedestrians have the right of way, so be extremely
careful — especially between classes!
PLACES TO EAT
Complete meals may be purchased in the Student Union
cafeteria, Student Union cardroom, the lower level (^f the main
Dining Hall, and College Park restaurants. The basements of
many of the larger classroom buildings are equipped with the
automats (for those who are in a hurry), and the Dairy provides
snacks and the best (and most original) ice cream available.
PLACES TO STUDY
Daydodgers who wish to study during their spare hours on
campus can find peace and quiet in the McKeldin Library, Math
Library, and Chemistry Library. Study rooms in the newer dorms
may also be convenient, but check with friends first.
For a more informal atmosphere, the Student Union Study
Room on the second floor and the Student Union lounges are
ACTIVITIES ESPECIALLY CONVENIENT
Intramurals and Sports:
Women — sign up in Prienkert Fieldhouse with WRA Advisor or
consult the S.G.A. calendar and Diamondback for dates.
Men — sign up in the Armory.
Co-ed — sign up with the Commuters Association for bowling
Commuters' Association Theme parties and dances are sched-
uled often. Check the S.G.A. calendar and Diamondback
Student Union Dances are held bi-weekly (free)
International Club holds socials or fiesta every other Friday night.
Everyone is welcome.
Lectures and art exhibits are sponsored by the Student Union
Board and are held during the afternoon for anyone who
would like to attend.
Student Union Movies (25 cents) feature many favorites both
foreign and domestic. The movie schedule is posted on the
Student Union Bulletin Board and in the Diamondback.
Student-Faculty Teas are an excellent opportunity for commuters
to become acquainted with the faculty.
For more information concerning activities open to Daydodgers
consult the Activity Newts' section in the Diamondback.
The Stereo Lounge in the Student Union.
The Fine Arts Room in McKeldin Library has both albums and
listening booths available.
Television sets, bowling alleys, billiard and game rooms are also
provided by the Student Union.
Free swimming facilities are provided for women in Prienkert
Fieldhouse and for men in Cole Fieldhouse. Co-ed sessions

Commuting students may find a sense of belonging and an
opportunity to take an active part in University life through the
University Commuters' Association. Aside from being primarily
a social organization, the U.C.A. provides a wide and varied pro-
gram through which day-students may participate in the many
extra-curricular activities available on our large campus. The
U.C.A serves as a link between the commuter and such activities
as the Student Government Association, clubs and intramurals.
Students who are interested in serving on an S.G.A. committee
may inquire and apply through U.C.A. There has been quite an
increasing interest in campus politics among commuters, and this
fall finds several commuters serving in key positions in S.G.A.
The U.C.A. President serves on the S.G.A. Cabinet and each of
the three campus political parties has a U.C.A. representative.
Thus, the commuter is well represented in student government.
For those interested in sports, there are both men's and
women's teams sponsored by U.C.A in the intramural leagues as
well as a U.C.A. bowling league.
Among the cultural events which commuters may enjoy are a
spring banquet, teas, and luncheons featuring guest speakers.
Highlighting the social program are parties, hayrides, picnics and
U.C.A. also provides the commuter with worthwhile services.
Of special notice are the Weekend Trip Service, new this year,
the Carpool Service, and the Dorm Affiliation Project. Students
who live on campus and wish to secure rides home on weekends
or vacations may make plans by consulting the U.C.A. bulletin
board in the Student Union. The Carpool Service is for those
who wish to form a carpool or find rides to and from the University
with other commuters from the same area. Lists for this purpose
may also be found on the U.C.A. bulletin board across from the
U.C.A. Den. The Dorm Affiliation Program, initiated last fall,
was organized by the Associated Women Students for commuting
freshmen women, to acquaint them with dormitory life and bring
them closer to the University. Any freshman woman may take
part by applying for a dorm "big sister". A tea is held during
freshmen orientation at which time the commuter will meet her
"big sister" and other commuters. The commuter and her "big
sister" may meet for coke dates, and she is free to use the facilities
of the dorm during the day to study, relax, or visit with friends.
The recently remodeled U.C.A. Den, center of commuter
activity, is located in the basement of the Student Union. The
U.C.A. Den provides pleasant and convenient place for students
to gather between classes and in the evenings.
Some of the most important benefits from membership in
the U.C.A. are the lasting ties of friendship formed through
daily social and academic contact.

To a student first entering a University the term Greek may
have Httle or no meaning, yet it is a term he will hear many times.
The simplest definition of the term Greek is a student who belongs
to either a fraternity or a sorority. This, in turn, may lead to the
question, what is a fraternity or sorority? A college Greek organi-
zation is a group of women or men joined together for social and
educational purposes, and dedicated to common goals and ideals.
The Greek population on our campus plays an important role
in the college community. They are active in politics, sports,
publications, honoraries and all other facets of college Viif Be-
sides their activities on campus, each group supports a nation-
wide philanthropic project together with other chapters of their
fraternity across the nation. Projects vary from helping the blind
to aiding an entire mountain settlement.
Although scholarship and activities play a major role in the
organization of fraternities and sororities, brotherhood and sister-
hood are more adequate words to describe the basis on which
these organizations are built.
Your first introduction to sorority life at the University is an
exciting week of rush. Rush is the period of social activity in which
sorority women and girls who are interested in sororities may be-
come acquainted. Rushees are also in the process of selecting the
sorority in which they will feel most comfortable.
Rush lasts for a week and a half and is divided into several
rounds of parties. The first set of parties are known as Open House
Teas. During this round, each rushee is required to visit each of
the eighteen sorority houses. She is then issued invitations from
various houses and she must limit these to eight. After the set of
eight parties she must choose four and after the set of four parties
the rushee's next step is to limit her invitations to two. The round
of two parties is referred to as Preference Teas and it gives the
rushee one more chance to meet the sorority women before
making her final choice.
Rushing culminates in pledging. Pledgeship is a period of
learning about the sorority, helping with the pledge projects, and
getting to know new-found sisters. The major emphasis during
pledgeship is on scholarship because a girl must have at least a
2.2 average to be initiated into any of Maryland's 18 sororities.
Dear Freshmen Coeds:
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to
the University of Maryland on behalf of the
Panhellenic Association and every sorority
woman on campus. During your college
years, you will be discovering your aims in
life. You will be formulating the goals you
some day hope to achieve and you will be
developing the ideals which will guide your
actions throughout your future years.
Through active participation in the
sorority system, you will be given opportu-
nities to develop socially and personally and
you will find the means to help y<^u answer
your basic questions, meet your funda-
mental needs, and provide you with your most enriching and
As a Greek you will have an opportunity to experience a
complete college education. You will be aided by an extra em-
phasis on scholarship and you will also experience an extension
of interests and your ideas. Through sorority living you will find
yourself taking an active part in service projects for your college
and your community, you will find an enjoyable social life, and
most of all, you will realize all the warmth, fellowship and friend-
ship that engulfs the sorority system. Most important to Greek
women is the warm, close, and lasting friendships that come from
living with a group of people who truly are your sisters.
As you seek what will be most worthwhile for you at Maryland
we hope that you will consider sorority membership. We are
looking forward to meeting you during Rush.
Rush, although it only lasts for a short period, is one of the
most important aspects of the fraternity system because it is the
life-line of the system. During the rushing period, there is a series
of scheduled events including an introduction to rush policies and
and procedures and an introduction to the individual fraternity
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) has prepared a Rush Book-
let introducing the Rushee to the fraternity system and other
publicity is distributed throughout the campus. You will also find
that fraternity men will be more than willing to answer any ques-
tions you may have. Fraternity rush itself consists primarily of
both stag and dated parties which give the rushee an opportunity
to meet the fraternity members.
Rush ends in Pledgeship. During the pledging period, a young
man learns more about his fraternity, accepts responsibility and
comes to have a knowledge of the ideals his fraternity holds.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the University
of Maryland. On behalf of the Interfraternity Council and its
twenty-four member fraternities, I shall extend an invitation to
you to become a part of the Greek system.
The national fraternities at Maryland, ranging in size from
thirty to one hundred members, offer you countless benefits and
opportunities. By being a member one develops many close,
lifelong friendships, participates in a well-structured intramural
sports program and also can achieve academic excellence.
Fraternities are extremely well represented in all phases of
extracurricular student life; Student Government Association,
varsity athletics. University Theater, and campus publications,
just to mention a few.
Pledge programs place an emphasis upon scholastic achieve-
ment coupled with growth of character within you, as an individ-
The primary objective your college career is to develop as a
more complete man, by combining academics and social life
gradually to increase maturity. The fraternity compliments the
University in the final fulfillment of this objective.
Leaving you with these thoughts, I hope you will be successful
in your college aims and endeavors. I hope that you will sample
fraternities for yourself, by participating in rush and joining a
fraternity that will give you a lifelong taste of completeness.
Panhellenic is the regulating body for the entire sonority
system. The Panhellenic Council is composed of two delegates
from each of the eighteen sorority houses, however, every sorority
woman on campus is a member of the Panhellenic Association.
The council provides a forum for the exchange of ideas between
sororities and plans worthwhile projects to be carried out through
the cooperation of all sorority groups for the betterment of the
The council serves as a representative organization which
makes the rules concerning membership selection, pledging and
initiation with the aid of faculty and administration.
In addition, our campus also has a pledge panhellenic council
which serves to coordinate the activities of the pledge classes and
to train future members and officers of the Panhellenic Council.
The Pledge Panhellenic Council consists of a representative from
each pledge class and the president of each pledge class.
Both councils promote intersorority cooperation through such
activities as exchange dinners, fireside chats, dances, workshops
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the coordinating body of
the fraternity system. It functions to strengthen and co-ordinate
the activities of the individual houses in a group effort. Each of the
twenty-four fraternity houses have one voting delegate to the coun-
cil. The IFC also sponsors several annual events; IFC Presents,
IFC Ball, IFC athletic programs, a tutoring service, IFC rush, and
workshops during Fall Greek Week. The highlight of the year is
the Interfraternity Ball held at Indian Springs Country Club.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ^ #^
STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION
The Student Government Association is the organ through
which students coordinate all student activities and services.
During fall registration, each student pays a $12 fee which pro-
vides the working capital for the S.G.A. The students themselves,
through SGA representatives, determine how this money is allo-
cated, as well as many other policy decisions.
Like the national government, the University has three
branches: executive, legislative and judicial.
The SGA cabinet determines student policies and represents
student opinion to the faculty and administration of the University.
Officers and members of the cabinet are elected by the student
MEMBERS OF THE CABINET FOR 1965-66
S.G.A. President Ted Levin
S.G.A. Vice-President Miller Hudson
S.G.A. Secretary Margaret Hall
S.G.A. Treasurer Bob Maddox

Sorority Representative Stephanie Jacobs
Fraternity Representative Wayne Legum
A.W.S. Representative Tay Kincaid
Mens League Representative Bob Martz
Independent Women s Representative Caren Harnest
Independent Mens Representative John Slade
Commuter's Representative Ralph ConHn
The SGA legislature passes bills which are then sent to the
cabinet for action. SGA finances are of primary concern to the
legislature. The students determine how money is allocated among
the classes and the many student organizations which submit
budgets to the Finance Committee for approval. Legislature
meetings, like the cabinet, are open to all interested students and
suggestions are welcome.
All judicial power held by students is granted by the Faculty
Senate Committee on Student Discipline and is vested in several
judicial boards. Cases involving student infractions of University
regulations or public laws are referred to student judicial boards
by the Judiciary Office according to the assigned jurisdictional
area of each.
Central Student Court. Central Student Court is staffed to
render the judgment of the student body. It is composed of nine
members, including fraternity, sorority, residence hall, commuter,
male and female representation. Each justice must be a junior or
senior and maintain a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade-point
average. Central Student Court has appellate jurisdiction over
other major student judicial boards, hears constitutionality cases
and infractions of major University rules.
Student Traffic Court. The Student Traffic Court consists
of seven justices, including four men and three women. The
Board has jurisdiction over cases involving violation of campus
traffic rules and regulations.
A.W.S. Judicial Board. The A.W.S. Judicial Board has nine
members representing sorority, dormitory and commuter women.
The Board has jurisdiction over cases involving major violations
incurred by women, and appellate jurisdiction over women's
dormitory and sorority judicial boards.
Resident Mens Judicial Board. Six residents of men's resi-
dence halls on campus sit on the Resident Men's Judicial Board.
They are selected to represent the four residential areas — Cam-
bridge, Denton, "Prefab" and "Hill." The Resident Men's Board
hears cases involving dormitory groups and violations of dormitory
safety rules by individual residents. It has appellate jurisdiction
over Men's House judiciaries.
Panhellenic Judicial Board. This board is composed of the
executive officers of Panhellenic. It deals with sorority houses
which have broken Panhellenic Rules such as those concerning
I.F.C. Judicial Board. The Interfraternity Judicial Board is
composed of five senior fraternity men. The board hears cases
involving an infraction of I.F.C. legislation or University rules
by a fraternity group.
ASSOCIATED WOMEN STUDENTS
The governing body for women students on campus, A.W.S.,
provides a variety of services and activities. Some annual proj-
ects are: a Christmas Program, Bridal Fair, workshops. Orphan's
Party with Panhel, and the women's convocation. Throughout the
year positions are available to freshman women on committees
such as: cultural, social, elections, constitution, publicity and

Membership in most of the SGA Committees is open follow-
ing spring elections and appointments. A few, however, are open
to freshmen in the fall and notices of these openings will be pub-
lished in the Diamondback sometime during the fall semester.
You may apply for all SGA committees in Dean Florestano's
office in the Student Union.
Some committees of special interest to freshmen are:
Homecoming. One of the biggest events in the fall is home-
coming. Sorority houses and women's dorms build displays in
front of their respective residences while fraternities and men's
dorms build floats to be entered competition during an extrava-
gant pre-game parade. The game, open houses and a formal dance
complete the day. Any student may apply.

mittee coordinates cultural events all over the University, such as
the University theater. Glee Clubs, Gymkana and Flying Follies.
In addition, the committee brings famous stars to entertain the
Campus Chest. This committee is composed of representa-
tives of all campus groups which promote projects to raise funds

pation in any aspect of this program offers a rewarding experience.
Student Union Board. The Student Union Board sponsors a
variety of social and cultural events. They sponsor speakers,
dancers, movies and big name bands, as well as other events of
FOB. The Freshmen Orientation Board sponsors Orientation
Week in the Spring and Fall to acquaint new students with the

Elections. Members of the Election Board supervise election
practices, count ballots and work at the polls. Positions as poll
workers will be available during Freshman elections.
Other committees of interest are: Campus Improvements,
Who's Who, Parents' Day, Away Weekend, PubHc Relations,
Student Activities, and Traffic. For information concerning any

or a member of the SGA.
Elections of the president, vice president, secretary, treas-
urer, A.W.S. representative and Men's League representative
for the Class of 1969 and six legislature seats, will be held in the
fifth or sixth week of the first semester. Aspiring candidates must
submit an application and petition signed by fifty members of the
class in order to run for office. Campaigning lasts for two weeks,
one week for the primary and one week for the final elections.
General elections are held in March or April. Candidates are
nominated by the Old Line, Free State, and Chesapeake Bay
Parties at conventions a few weeks prior to elections. Candidacy
may also be obtained by submitting to the SGA cabinet a petition
with 750 signatures. Complete election rules and procedures can
be obtained by contacting the Election Board.
Campus, local, and international news is reported daily in the
University newspaper, the Diamondback. The News Board, the
journalism classes, and members of the newspaper staff report
activities, announcements and special events. The News Board
recruits its members from students who have previous Diamond-
back experience. Working on the daily editions accounts for most
of this experience.
There is a separate daily staff for each day of the week. A
daily editor and a copy chief direct the copyreading, editing, and
typing of stories two days in advance of publication. Help is always
needed, and since no experience is necessary, freshmen have an
ideal opportunity to gain experience and develop their journalis-
tic talent. The business, editorial, and sports staffs complete the
picture of the publication of the Diamondback.
The open house teas in the Journalism Building at the be-
ginning of each semester serve to introduce all interested stu-
dents to Diamondback operations.
Information and candid pictures are features of the school
yearbook, the TERRAPIN highlights all the interesting events that
occur on campus during the school year. Included are pictures of
sports events, campus queens, dorm residents, seniors, and soror-
ities and fraternities.
Section editors, copy editors, and photographers make up
the Terrapin. Students interested in working on the yearbook
may apply in the TERRAPIN office in the Journahsm Building.
Campus radios set their dials on 650 to tune in the University
radio station, WMUC. An affiliate of NBC and a member of the
Intercollegiate Broadcasting Co., WMUC broadcasts 24 hours a
day. Special programs, such as those during big sports events and
elections, focus attention on major campus activities. Try-outs
for disc jockeys and announcers are open to both men and women
in the WMUC office in building FF in the gulch.
Original poetry, short stories, essays, and art by University
students fill the pages of the Calvert Review. This literary maga-
zine has been published semi-annually since its establishment in
1963. Awards of $20 are given in each category: poetry, prose, and
art. Interested students should submit their work to the Calvert
Review office in TaHaferro Hall.
Hopefully, this publication, the M Book, which you are now
reading, will be the Freshman's "Bible". In handbook form, the
M Book compiles and organizes all the information a new student
on campus would want to know. It lists hours, dates, activities,
phone numbers, and regulations which the freshman cannot
possibly learn all at once, or for that matter, learn during his four
years at Maryland. This compact University encyclopedia in-
cludes everything a newcomer needs to know to make his adjust-
ment to college life a pleasant and profitable experience.
The M Book staff is mainly composed of Freshmen and Soph-
omores with a few upperclassmen in editorial positions. All
freshmen are urged to apply for work on the staff, especially if
you are considering furthering your participation in college pub-
lications, since this is excellent background experience. Applica-
tions may be picked up and returned to Dean Florestano's office
in the Student Union.

The University of Maryland Madrigal Singers are under-
graduate students with a deep interest in instrumental and choral
works of the Renaissance. Since the group's establishment in
1958, under the leadership of Rose Marie Grentzer,the repertoire
of the ensemble had broadened and now includes early and con-
temporary American music and folk songs.
According to performance practices of the period instruments
such as the recorder, lute, guitar, clavichord, rebec, and harpsi-
chord are used. Colorful costumes of the period are also worn.
The Madrigal singers perform in numerous engagements in-
cluding a campus concert. They have performed on radio and
television. In the winter of 1964-65 they toured Europe, singing
as they went.
New members are always welcome to the group.
MARYLAND MARCHING BAND
Students interested in joining the band may audition in the
first week of school since practice begins early. This unit presents
half-time shows at football games, executing intricate marching
routines. After football season, the Marching Band splits up into
the Concert Band, the Symphonic Band, and the Varsity Band.
The elite of the Marching Band comprise the Concert Band
which tours the state during semester break. It also presents a
few performances throughout the year at Ritchie Coliseum.
WOMEN'S CHORUS AND
MEN'S GLEE CLUB
Practicing and performing as one unit, these groups present
various programs throughout the year. Well known for their
singing perfection, they accompanied the National Symphony
Orchestra last year.
The Drama Wing of the Department of Speech was formed in
1957 under the direction of E. Thomas Starcher, assistant pro-
fessor of speech and drama.
The purpose of this group is to perform for PTA's and civic
organizations who are interested in the behaviour problems of
children from 4-18.
An essential part of the program is the discussion period
which follows each performance.
Anyone can apply for this group, but must serve two semes-
ters to qualify for membership. Drama Wing averages two per-
formances each week during an active semester. Those students
interested in joining this group cannot participate in any other
extra curricular activity that will conflict with performance time.

Maryland University is unsurpassed in varsity athletics. The
University is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC),
the Amateur Athletic Association of America, and the National
Collegiate Athletic Association, and cooperates with other national
organizations to promote amateur athletics.
The Cole Activities Building is the heart of the athletic depart-
ment and boasts a modern gymnasium, an olympic-size swimming
pool, training facilities for indoor sports, numerous physical
education laboratories and a modern arena with a seating capacity
of 13,000. Mr. Wilham Coby, director of athletics, works dih-
gently with the head coaches of basketball, football, swimming,
wrestling, baseball, and tennis, toward the extension of athletics
at the University. Maryland facilities continue in the Armory,
which houses the indoor track and rifle teams and basketball
courts for intramurals. Byrd stadium has a track circling the foot-
ball gridiron. This is not to mention athletic fields, tennis courts,
a golf course, baseball diamonds, and separate facilities for
women in Preinkert.
This year Coach Tom Nugent and staff will present the same
quick, hard hitting, and colorful football team that Maryland fans
have seen in the past. Ken Ambrusko, Jim Corcoran, and Ed Pine,
along with the rest of the team, look forward to Nugent's platoon
system against a rough schedule including Navy and Penn State.
Maryland's soccer team, under the guidance of Coach Doyle
Royal, remains a top contender in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
With gold awards given to twenty of last year's players, this year's
team hopefully will have an outstanding season.
The greatest assets of the basketball team are its natural
ability and youth; these assets carried the team to great heights
last year. Experience gained in the VPI Invitational Tournament
and the ACC Tournament should help this year's team immensely.
Dominating Coach Bud Millikan's team are Neil Brayton,
Jay McMillan, and Joe Harrington, each with impressive records.
Their continuance of good ball playing should be indicative of
future success for the Terps.
Coach Sully Krouse's Terps dominate the ACC in wrestling.
This year's team promises to break all records; most of last year's
wrestlers such as Tom Greiger, Olaf Drozdof will return and are
expected to continue their winning ways. Bob Kopnisky made
Maryland history last year by becoming the first terrapin wrestler
to win a NCAA championship.
Maryland's lacrosse team, under the direction of Coach Al
Heagy, is second only to Navy in nationwide collegiate lacrosse.
Eleven lettermen are on the roster to start the season's opener
against Maryland Lacrosse Club.
Ten of Maryland's fifteen games will be played at home. The
team should have a challenging year since its schedule includes
Virginia, Army and Johns Hopkins.
TRACK AND FIELD
ACC broad jumper champion Mike Cole was the high point
scorer on last year's team. This year he will be backed in the
jumps by Don Smith and Bob Schnetzka; Steve Lamb in the 440
and Ramsy Thomas in the 880 are top running stars.
Dick Sheer, Tom Finly, and Ed Bury spearhead a fine group
of hurdlers and pole vaulters including ACC champions Ed
Bennett (indoors) and Stu Markly (outdoors). Twenty returning
lettermen will make this year's relays truly exciting.
Coach James Kehoe is in his nineteenth year at the Univer-
Under the able guidance of Coach Frank Cronin, this year's
golf team should prove to be one of great agility and spirit. Cro-
nin's team will face such opponents as Dartmouth in games which
hopefully will repeat its good showing of last year. Frank Gorelko
will lead this year's team.
Coach Jack Jackson will direct this year's baseball team. Top
hitter Dick Horton and top pitchers Brad Frost and Ike Issacson
should be able to lead the team to victory.
Last year's undefeated tennis team will again reach for the
ACC championship this spring, under the direction of Coach
Doyle Royal. With netmen such as Jim Busick, the host singles
player in the conference, and Lew Dobbs, Ken Chapman, Vaughn
Baker, Richard Gains, and Roger Flax, the team will challenge
such opponents as Dartmouth, Syracuse, and Clemson.
The Terps swimming team will again aim at the Eastern
Regional Swimming Championship at Yale, under the direction
of Coach Bill Campbell. The seven major components of this team
are: Phil Denkevitz, Bill Nullmyer, Eric Lampe, Bill Deheny,
Bruce Phillips, Raoul Rebillard and Doc Dunphy.
Maryland athletes who have earned the right to wear a
varsity letter are honored by membership in the M-club. It is a
social group, but also sponsors such awards as the Outstanding
Intramural Athletes of the Year and athletic scholarships. The
organization was established at Maryland to bring together the
Athletics form an integral part of campus life; although var-
sity sports are more in the limelight, intramurals are marked by
outstanding skill and fierce competition.
Under the auspices of Coach Jim Kehoe and the direct super-
vision of Raymond Mullis, intramural sports on campus have risen
from obscurity to widely-publicized events. Intramurals are open
to Greeks and Independents in three respective leagues — the
fraternity, open and dorm leagues. Such team sports as football,
volleyball, basketball, softball, bowling, and swimming; and in-
dividual sports such as table tennis, golf, wrestling, weight lifting,
badminton, tennis and cross country are included in the program.
It is highly recommended that each freshman explore the
possibilities of intramural activities.
The Women's Recreational Association is a student organiza-
tion that plans and sponsors many recreational, sport, and social
activities. WRA consists of officers elected by University women,
committee chairmen, interest group and club leaders, and intra-
mural managers from each dorm, sorority, and the Daydodgers.
Every University woman is automatically a member of WRA and
should take advantage of the program offered to her. WRA pro-
vides a chance to have fun, make new friends, and become a part
of campus life.
Intramural games between dorm, sorority, and commuter
teams are played throughout the year. WRA advocates good
sportsmanship along with competition.
WRA interest groups offer instruction, a chance to improve
skills and competition with other colleges. You do not have to be
a professional to participate, either!
Clubs add to the variety of the WRA program — the modern
dance club, aqualiners, and the fencing club are popular coed
groups. Each presents its own spectacular productions both on
and off campus.
Your WRA representative will keep you well informed of
its activities. WRA welcomes anyone that is interested; contact
Miss Ethel Kessler in Preinkert Field House.
Annual events that WRA sponsors are: Sports Day, Fresh-
man Picnic, WRA-M-Club Banquet, and WRA Spring Banquet.
Gymkana, Maryland's coed gymnastic group, strives for the
highest in physical training, perfection, balance, and teamwork.
All students are welcome to try out for membership.
MARYLAND -MARYLAND -Fight Team Fight!! This is
a sample cry from the cheerleaders as they cheer our teams to
victory. Tryouts are held in the fall; males are also selected for
the squad. The present squad consists of:
Judy Klein — Co-Captain
June Toye — Co-Captain
The University's thirteen color guard majorettes are the flag
bearers of the University band. They carry the American, state,
and schools of the ACC flag as they march in all of the home foot-
ball games and several of the away games.
Try-outs are held every spring.

UNIVERSITY MEMORIAL CHAPEL
This chapel was dedicated in 1952 to those persons of the
University who died for the cause of freedom. The Chapel, com-
posed of the East or Main Chapel, the West Chapel, and the
