The couple on the cover have been selected by the editors as
a ''typical freshman couple." We have attempted as much as
possible to follow them through their campus life, as will be seen
in the rest of this book.
Welcome To The Freshmen— 1966:
I extend a warm welcome to the University of
Maryland. Although the enrollment is large, we are
interested in you as an individual, and I believe that
you will find on this campus the people and the facilities
to help you achieve whatever your goal may be.
We must assume that you are prepared to do
college work. If this is correct, then the most important
factor in your success will be self-discipline. It is up
to you to make many choices, and self-discipline will
play an important part in your progress as a student.
Self-discipline is not easy for anyone, but it can be
developed and it will pay rich dividends.
We expect you to perform in accordance with
your ability, and we hope that this will be a source
of satisfaction to you and to the University. It is in
your interest to make the most of the opportunities
available to you.

POINTS OF PRIDE
Each year the University prides itself on various claims to
fame, and the 1965-66 academic year was no exception. The
students, faculty, and facilities again won awards for which they
may justly be proud.
In the fall of 1965 the Carmichael Cup was presented to the
University. This award is given each year to the outstanding school
in the Atlantic Coast Conference for outstanding athletics.
The University ranked tenth in the nation this year in
enrollment, adequate proof that we have one of the fastest growing
universities in the country.
A point of pride on the campus which is continually receiving
more recognition is the University's School of Engineering, which
is ranked very highly throughout the nation.
Research at the University touches virtually every segment
of our economy. Expenditures for organized research have more
than doubled over the past four years and totaled approximately
$14,351,000 in 1965.
The excellence of the University's high energy physics faculty
and program was merited by an award of -13,000,000 from the
Atomic Energy Commission for a 100,000,000 volt cyclotron. This
cyclotron represents a great monetary investment and will require
two years to construct and install. We are quite honored to have
been considered worthy of such an award.
During the spring of 1966 the Diamondback newspaper was
recognized as one of the outstanding college newspapers in the
country. We are also proud of our All-American Terrapin yearbook.
WMUC, our campus radio station, is rated as the Number One
college radio station in the country.
The University was proud to have claimed six of the Woodrow
Wilson Fellowship Award winners this year. These awards are
presented to outstanding students throughout the country to
enable them to further their studies through graduate work. These
winners include: Charles Fefferman, Mathematics; James John-
ston, Biochemistry; John H. Gillespie, Genetics; Nancy Harrison,
Psychology; John Lilienfeld, History; and John E. Loft, Jr.,
The University is also unique in that its Board of Regents
serves as the State Board of Agriculture. So in addition to its
academic responsibilities, it also is responsible for a multitude of
services and controls. These services are carried out in conjunction
with teaching departments, research, and agricultural extensions.
The important events chronicled in the University's growth
form an impressive list of contributions to the progress of higher
education in the United States and in the world. We students can
be justly proud of the University's record of early perception of new
needs, of willingness to renovate, and of boldness in undertaking
Maryland has a rich heritage. The University began in 1807 as
the University of Baltimore where the first school established was
the College of Medicine, the fifth oldest in the U.S., and the first in
America to make dissecting a compulsory part of the curriculum,
also first to create an independent chair of diseases of women. The
Maryland College of Pharmacy, which was added in 1871, was the
first to establish a chair of analytical chemistry. The School of Law,
the fourth law school in the U.S., was added in 1882. Also in 1882
the School of Dentistry was founded, the first such school in the
world, for the only profession to be established in the U.S. The
School of Nursing was founded in 1889 by Louisa Parsons with the
cooperation of Florence Nightingale.
The College Park Campus, now the main campus, was
established in 1856 when a group of southern Maryland farmers
purchased the estate of Charles B. Calvert, Esquire, and founded
the Maryland Agricultural College, the third oldest in the western
hemisphere, and financed it by selling stock for $25.00 per share.
In 1862 Congress passed the Morrill Land Grant Act which
allowed Maryland, a partially state-owned institution, to be one
of the first to benefit from federal aid to education. Due to a
disastrous fire in 1912 and a decrease in enrollment because of the
war, the College found it necessary to apply for further state aid;
thus in 1914 the State Legislature bought all of the stock in the
college which then became the Maryland State College.
The University of ^Maryland was formed in 1920 when
Maryland State College and the University of Baltimore merged.
Another large expansion occurred in 1949 when the University
established the College of Special and Continuation Studies which
provides an overseas program for servicemen and dependents of
government employees. This program is now available in twenty-
five countries on four continents.
The Baltimore campus has now been enlarged to include a new
four year campus at Catonsville, which is opening this fall with 750
freshmen. Recently there have also been significant additions to
the College Park campus. In 1965 a new facihty, the Adult
Education Center was completed. Also opened were the Fine Arts
Building, the Education Building, and the Computer Science
Center. Under construction are the Space Science Center and an
addition to the Physics-Astronomy Building including the install-
ment of a cyclotron.
Several long-established customs have served as traditions
that have been observed from one generation to another at the
Perhap the most notable is our terrapin mascot, Testudo, in
front of McKeldin Library, who harbors the secrets of generations
of students. Another mascot was born in 1965 — a huge mechanical
turtle to be used at athletic events to boost school spirit.
The chapel chimes echo ''Maryland, My Maryland" each
hour, warning students that classes are about to begin. It is these
hurrying footsteps which have created the well-worn paths on the
Certainly a notorious tradition is the mad rush and frustrating
effort to prepare a schedule during Registration Week. Freshmen
are repeatedly warned of this dark week, only to find that the
worst result is a case of frayed nerves.
In a happier vein, the Inter-fraternity Council sponsors many
fun-filled traditions each year. Harmony Hall, IFC Sing, IFC Ball,
and IFC Presents, featuring top entertainment, provide admirable
memories for all. These events are good testimony to the organiza-
tion and enthusiasm of the Greeks.
Each year the Student Government Association sponsors
Parents' Day, Homecoming, Away Weekend, Cultural Events,
AWS Bridal Fair, and Class Proms. These activities provide great
enjoyment and serve to bring the students into closer contact with
As soon as the weather is warm, and the sun dries the last
of the winter snow, the mall is spread with students lounging,
studying, or getting in some pre-Ocean City sun-bathing.
Campaign battles and hectic conventions highlight the
University's elections. Each year, when pandemonium is seen in
front of the Student Union or the dining halls where voting is done,
one can be sure that elections are here again.
No account of the University's traditions would be complete
without mention of the Kissing Tunnel. This secluded spot may be
found under Chapel Drive in front of the Chapel.
The constant lack of parking places throughout the campus
brings many cries of woe and causes many an allowance to be
spent paying for violations.
One of the more useful traditions is the greatly needed pre-
exam study day. This is one of the more quiet days on the campus
as students prepare for their final exams.
These are but a few of the unwritten and traditional posses-
sions which give each student a feeling of unity and completeness
during his memorable and eventful years at the University.
Every freshman should be familiar with the mem-
bers of the Administration and their responsibilities,
for they coordinate and direct all phases of Uni-
versity life. They are always anxious to meet
students, listen to their views, and help them with

Diligent scholarship is a major responsibility of the student
of higher education; the freshman is especially responsible for
taking the required courses, taking sufficient credits, and planning
Classes are of either 50 or 75 minute duration (the 50 minute
classes meet three days a week; the 75 minute classes, two days a
week). If the instructor is late, students must wait 20 minutes for
deans, 15 minutes for doctors, and 10 minutes for instructors
before dismissing themselves. There are no automatic absences for
freshmen (with the exception of second semester freshmen who
have attained a 3.5 average for the first semester); a report is
turned in to the student's dean if he has more than three unexcused
absences in one class. Instructors may penalize freshmen for
absences. Excused absences include illness and participation in
University activities at the request of University authorities.
Upperclassmen (sophomores, juniors, and seniors) are allowed
unUmited absences in those courses classified as non-participation
courses. Although this privilege has been extended, the University
does not encourage the habit of missing classes.
A two-hour exam is held at the end of each semester for
every course. Two or three one-hour exams C'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
The following symbols are used: A, B, C, D, passing; F,
failure; and I, incomplete. In computing scholastic averages, the
following numerical values are assigned: A-4, B-3, C-2, D-1, and
Any freshman student doing work below the C level after the
first six weeks of school receives a slip from his dean. A copy is also
sent home to the student's parents. Though a dean's slip has no
bearing on his final grade, the student should talk with his instruc-
tor to learn how to improve his work.
REPEATS AND DROPOUTS
Both the original grade and the new grade will be posted on
the student's record and used in computing his average for
probation and dismissal. However, only the new grade is used in
computing the academic average. First semester freshmen are
allowed to wait eight weeks before dropping a course; all other
students are allowed three weeks. The student must see his
academic advisor and dean for approval. For further inform.ation,
consult the ACADEMIC REGULATIONS booklet pubUshed by
A student must consult his new dean before transferring
colleges. A student with less than a 2.0 average will be placed under
control of the Office of Intermediate Registration (O.I.R.). Under
the O.I.R. program, the student can absolve his trial or proba-
tionary status and be eligible for admission into the new college;
eligibihty must be achieved in one, or two at the most, semesters.
ACADEMIC AND JUNIOR STANDING
An average of C and a minimum of 56 hours of academic work
(excluding P.E., health, or R.O.T.C.) are required for junior
standing. A student is allowed one semester of grace if he fails to
make junior standing at the end of the fourth semester. Dismissal
will result if it is not achieved at the end of the probationary
The University maintains the Counseling Center to assist
students to maintain a better understanding of themselves and to
develop improved methods for deahng with vocational choice,
educational, and personal problems. The Center provides an
extensive program on reading and study skills given on an
individual basis on a six-week cycle with two cycles each semester.
Students pay an annual ''Advisory and Testing Fee" at the time
of registration and are entitled to the services of the Counseling
Center without further charge. The Counseling Center is located
in Shoemaker Hall.
Many groups on campus offer tutoring for freshmen. Among
these are Phi Eta Sigma and Alpha Lambda Delta, the men's and
women's freshmen honoraries. The individual departments also
offer tutoring, though a nominal fee may be charged.
Freshmen who attain a 3.5 average are eligible for initiation
into the scholastic honoraries (either a first semester average or
cumulative for the year). Any student who earns a 3.5 is placed on
the Dean's List. Each fall an Honors Convocation is held to honor
those students who have maintained an average of 3.5 or better for
the preceding year.
At least 120 semester hours (excluding P.E., R.O.T.C., and
health) 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 specific requirements.
One of the most challenging aspects of a large University is its
diversity, academically, as well as socially. Since other parts of this
book describe the social opportunities, this section is devoted to
the academic possibilities for the new student.
COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE
Dr. Gordon M. Cairns has the distinction of being dean of the
oldest division of the University of Maryland at College Park.
The College of Agriculture offers many diverse fields of
study, including: General Agriculture, Agricultural Economics,

Agricultural Engineering, Agronomy, Animal Science, Botany,
Conservation and Resource Development, Entomology, Food
Science, Horticulture, Pre-Forestry, and a program for Pre-
Theological students who wish to prepare for a rural ministry.
COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES
Established in 1921, the College of Arts and Sciences is the
largest in the University. Within its fifteen departments are the
physical sciences, the fine arts, and the humanities. Graduates may
earn degrees of Bachelor of Sciences, of Arts, and of Music.
An expanding and active college, under Dean Charles Man-
ning, the College of Arts and Sciences produces graduates with a
full and useful academic background.
Its majors include: American Studies, Art, Astronomy,
Botany, Chemistry, Classical Languages and Literatures, Com-
parative Literature, Computer Science, Economics, English
Language and Literature, Foreign Languages and Literatures,

COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRA-
Accounting, Real Estate, Transportation, Foreign Service,
Geography, Government and Politics, JournaHsm, and Office
Management^ are among the fields available to B.P.A. students.
Last year two important projects were initiated: a program
leading to the degree of Master of Business Administration, and a
joint appointment with the Computer Science Center to advance
computer related research and instruction.
Led by its new dean, Donald W. O'Connell, the College of
Business and PubHc Administration continues this program of
expansion and progress.
COLLEGE OF EDUCATION
From the College of Education come teachers prepared for
classes in nursery school, kindergarten, elementary and secondary
school, and fields of special education.
Estabhshed in 1920, the College awards either a Bachelor of
Arts or a Bachelor of Sciences degree.
Vernon E. Anderson is dean of this college.
COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING
The College of Engineering, under Acting Dean Russell B.
Allen, offers degrees in: Aeronautical Engineering, Chemical
Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical
Engineering, and Fire Protection.
COLLEGE OF HOME ECONOMICS
The Acting Dean of the College of Home Economics is Erna R.
Chapman. In this college a student may study: food, nutrition or
institution administration, general home economics, home econom-
ics education, home economics extension, housing, apphed design
or crafts, and textiles or textiles and clothing.
COLLEGE OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Under the direction of Dean Lester M. Fraley, the College
of Physical Education provides Bachelor of Sciences degrees in five
professional areas: Physical Education, Dance, Health, Recrea-
tion, and Physical Therapy. Special curricula are also offered in
safety education and elementary physical education.
The University has six professional schools in Baltimore;
these schools are: Medicine, Law, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing,
and Physical Therapy. All of Maryland's professional schools have
very high national ratings.
More than 40,000 part-time students enroll each year in
courses offered through University College in the state of JNIaryland
and overseas. The overseas courses are offered on 200 military
installations in twenty-five foreign countries in cooperation with
the Armed Forces of the United States. All overseas study is fully
accredited by the University of Maryland; approximately 200
mihtary and civihan personnel stationed overseas complete their
Bachelor's degree each year. Commencement exercises are held
each spring in Tokyo, and Heidelberg.
Some of the most enjoyable hours of your college life will be
found in your new second home — the residence hall. You soon
realize that your residence hall is more than just a place to eat and
sleep. Here you learn to live with many types of people from many
different backgrounds. You learn how to give and take in order to
estabhsh a harmonious and enjoyable equilibrium.
Your room is your own personal domain which you may
decorate as you wish. Besides the bed, chest of drawers, desk and
chair which you are given, you and your roommate may add any
accessories such as posters, curtains and bedspreads. Fans, radios,
and record players are permitted but televisions, hot plates and
electric blankets are not. Linens and towels may either be brought
from home or obtained weekly from the Gordon-Davis Linen
Supply Company, which you can contact directly through an
agent on campus. For your further convenience many residence
halls are equipped with kitchens, laundry facilities and vending
Because the University realizes the importance of a noiseless
atmosphere in which to study, quiet hours are strictly enforced.
These are continuous with the exception of 11:30 A.M. to 1:30
P.M. and 4:30 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. Monday through Friday. Quiet
hours on Saturday and Sunday are somewhat relaxed. If for some
reason you don't want to study in your room, you may go to one
of the study rooms in every dorm. After hours, the main lobby is
often used for study. Should you be studying for an hourly, you
can always turn to the academic file, filled with past exams, notes
and term papers.
Each residence hall has graduate assistants and ofl^cers who
are there to help you adjust to your new residence hall life. But
dorm life also has its social aspect. Through frequent intramural
sports and desserts sponsored by the residence halls men and
women have a greater opportunity to meet other students and
experience a very essential part of college life.
Intercampus telephone service has been provided for your use
and is always available. Certain halls, though, do not permit
either outgoing or incoming calls after 11:00 P.M. This is not an
established rule; but is left up to the students on the individual
halls. Although intercampus telephone calls are continuous,
off-campus ones are not. These calls may be received only until
10:00 P.M. on Monday nights and 11 :00 P.M. on the other nights.
All outside calls must be made on the pay phones.
The main desk extensions for women's residence halls are:
Anne Arundel 7301 Montgomery C-D-E 7341
Caroline 7312 Montgomery F-G 7342
Carroll 7313 Montgomery A-B 7340
Centreville North 7310 Queen Anne's 7347
Centreville South 7311 St. Mary's 7348
Denton 7500 Somerset 7349
Dorchester 7331 Wocomico 7350
Elkton 7700 Worchester 7351
Men's halls do not have main desks but their extensions are
provided in the University Faculty-Staff telephone directory.
All residence halls have certain regulations concerning
visitors. Male callers to a female residence hall should go to the
main desk and have the woman paged. Women may visit men's
residences during calling hours or for regularly scheduled parties
which will be on the weekly social calendar.
Overnight guests of college age (no younger than sixteen) may
spend Friday and Saturday nights in your residence if there is
room and if you have the head resident's permission. Guests must
be registered 24 hours in advance. A fee of $.50 or $1.00 is charged
Skirts and dresses are the standard attire for women in
classrooms, administration buildings, the chapel and women's
residence hall lobbies. To these places men must wear shirts and
trousers. The same dress should be worn on the first and second
floors of the Student Union, although casual clothes are permitted
on the lower level at any time. Such attire is permitted at the
Women students may wear tailored bermudas and slacks in
the dining halls for breakfast and for lunch Monday through
Friday and all day Saturday. For dinner the remaining five nights
a skirt or dress is required. To Sunday dinner women should wear
heels and men should wear ties.
During inclement weather the choice of clothes is left to the
Curfews affect only the female students and are dependent
upon their year in college. Monday night is a closed night meaning
that the curfew for all women is 10:00 P.M. Tuesday through
Thursday and Sunday the freshman curfew is 11:00 P.M. while
sophomores, juniors and seniors have a 12:00 A.M. curfew. All
women students have until 1 :30 A.M. on Friday and Saturday to
return to the residence hall.
Freshmen sophomores and juniors receive three, six and nine
overnights respectively. Seniors are unrestricted as to the number
they may take. In addition, freshmen receive six 12:00 A.M. late
leaves per semester.
RESIDENCE HALL GOVERNMENT
With the rapid expansion of the student population, com-
munication among residence hall students became difficult.
Although each dorm had its own officers, there was little interaction
among them. The first step forward was the formation of Area
Councils, corresponding to the geographical location of the dorms.
At present, there are four Councils: the Hill; the Mobile Units;
Cambridge Complex, and Denton Complex. When Elhcott City
Hall and Hagerstown Hall are completed, they will form a fifth
Council. Representatives from each dorm make up the Area
Councils, which plan dances, and other social events, as well as
sponsor sports and work with the administration on dorm problems.
Last year, the Residence Hall Council was formed. Its purpose
is to co-ordinate Areas, and exchange ideas. The President and a
representative from each area sit on the Council. The President
and Executive Vice-President of the RHC, who are elected by
Area Councils, are members of the SGA Cabinet. The RHC has
several standing committees: Housing — through which the RHC
works with the Housing office for better student living; Social —
which works with dorm social chairmen and the University Social
Director for better activities, and Food Service — which presents
students' suggestions to the Dining Hall Staff. To insure contin-
uous, well-informed leaders, the RHC has established Leader
Training Sessions for all dorm officers and chairmen, to be held
during Orientation Week.
Greek - rush - Panhel - active - pledge — what do all of these
words mean? As a new student at the University, you are likely to
hear these terms many times. Perhaps the "Greek Dictionary"
below will help to clarify their meanings.
Active — an initiated member of a fraternity or sorority who
has completed pledgeship
Fraternity — a group of men joined together for social and
educational purposes, dedicated to common goals and ideals
Greek — a person affiliated with a fraternity or sorority
Independent — a person who is not affiliated with a fraternity
Interfraternity Council — the coordinating body of the fra-
Panhellenic Association — the regulating body for the sorority
Pledging — a period of learning about the fraternity or sorority,
helping with projects, and getting to know the brothers or sisters
Rush — a period of social activity during which men and
women interested in fraternities and sororities get a glimpse
of Greek life
Sorority — a group of women joined together for social and
educational purposes, dedicated to common goals and ideals
Fraternity men and sorority women at the University play an
active part in sports, student government, publications, honoraries,
clubs, and all facets of college life. Besides campus activities,
Greeks are busy with philanthropic projects and with national
fraternity or sorority events or projects. Greek organizations are
versatile — and always busy with some activity or project. Greeks
are always striving for scholarship, leadership, and an active role
in any aspect of college life.
For the new University coed, sorority rush will be an exciting
and unforgettable experience. Rush is a week during which
sorority women and girls interested in sororities become acquainted.
It is also a week of selection — selecting the sorority in which you
feel at home and of which you would hke to become a member.
Rush is divided into several rounds of parties. The first set
of parties are called Open House; during this round, each rushee is
required to visit each of the eighteen sorority houses. She is then
issued invitations from several houses and must limit her choices to
eight. After the set of eight parties, she must choose four and then
two. The set of two parties is named Preference Teas.
Rushing culminates in a period of pledging. Scholarship is
emphasized during pledging because each pledge must have a 2.2
academic average to be initiated into any of Maryland's eighteen
Panhellenic is the regulating body for the entire sorority sys-
tem. The Panhellenic Council is composed of two delegates from
each of the eighteen sorority houses and 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 sorority system.
The council 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 coordinates the activities of the pledge classes and trains
future members and officers of the Panhellenic Council. The Pledge
Panhellenic 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,
Rush is the life-line of the fraternity system for it is through
rush that men learn about and become members of fraternities.
During the rushing period there is a series of scheduled events
including an introduction to the individual fraternity houses.
Fraternity rush consists primarily of stag and dated parties which
allow the rushee the opportunity to meet members of the twenty-
four University fraternities.
Rush ends in pledging, a period during which the pledge learns
about his fraternity, accepts responsibility, and gains a knowledge
of his fraternity's ideals. Pledging also stresses scholarship since
fraternity initiation requires a 2.0 academic average.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the coordinating body
of the fraternity system which functions to strengthen and
co-ordinate the activities of each house into a group effort. Each

The Student Union offers many lounges for relaxation; the
quietest and most comfortable areas are the main ones on the first
and second floors.
''Meet me at the Union" is a common cry heard across campus.
The cafeterias, billiards room, television room, and the bowhng
alleys are social havens for commuters.
If you're on the lower portion of the campus, drop in at the
Dairy. You'll find many of your friends fattening up on the
University's own ice cream.
Macke vending machines are located in the basements of
most of the classroom buildings. These machines offer a wide
variety from cigarettes to sandwiches.
Whether you prefer pizzas, hamburgers, or cheese sandwiches,
the Student Union Cafeteria or Snack Bar is prepared to serve you.
If you are on the outer reaches of campus, try the Adult Education
Center for moderately priced lunches.
For some concentrated study, the library will probably be
your immediate destination. The increasing demand for quiet study
areas has converted the luxurious lounges of the Student Union
into study rooms. Frequently, classrooms will be available for an
hour or two for this purpose. Before and after meal times, the
Dairy is also a quiet refuge for the conscientious student. With the
arrival of warm weather, the largest study area — the Mall — opens.
Between the hours of 7:30 A.M. and 6:00 P.M., the campus
becomes a massive traffic jam; the cooperation of each driver is
necessary to keep the ever-swelling tide of cars on the move.
Maryland traffic regulations also apply to driving on campus. The
traffic signs may seem unending, but they are vital to the safety
of students walking to classes. The pedestrian always has the right
of way. Please don't test his abiUty to dodge cars.
All cars must be registered and the lot's parking sticker clearly
visible on the rear bumper. No duplicates of parking stickers are
available. Parking in a restricted lot without a sticker can be a

community service project. Last semester, members collected
"goodies" for patients at a VA mental hospital.
Each month a newsletter is published to inform members of
the many upcoming activities.
SOCIAL: The annual Playboy Ball is the highlight of the
UCA social world. For one evening the S.U. Ballroom is converted
into a Playboy Lounge — complete with bunnies !
Other opportunities to meet fellow commuters include picnics,
casual dances, and Friday afternoon coke dates. During Home-
coming, the Daydodgers join the festive spirit by building and
stuffing a float for the annual competition.
The UCA cultural committee offers guest speakers with
interesting talks at luncheons and fireside chats.

The DIA^MONDBACK is the University newspaper which
comes out four days a week and reports on campus, local, and

staff, and the journahsm classes report activities, announcements,
and special events. The News Board recruits its members from
students who have previous experience working on the DIA-
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 journalistic
talent. The business, editorial, and sports staffs complete the
picture of the pubHcation of the DIAMONDBACK.
The students are especially proud of the DIAMONDBACK
this vear because for the first time since 1940, the DIAMOND-
BACk has received an ALL AI^IERICAN RATING, the highest
homor a school newspaper can receive.

which makes the yearbook possible. Students interested in working

magazine on campus — the ARGOS, which will contain feature

their staffs. These positions are open to anyone interested in

in Room 103 of the Student Union.
The University campus has long been in need of a magazine
of this kind and we offer our congratulations and support to Terry
Baxter, who pioneered this magazine.
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 Hsts 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
The M-Book staff is mainly composed of Freshmen and
Sophomores 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 pubhca-
tions, since this is excellent background experience. Apphcations
may be picked up and returned to Dean Florestano's office in the

is available at no cost to the student.
No matter what your special skill or inclination, there is likely
