Historical Background 



The historical background of the University of Maryland 
reflects the impressive growth of one of the oldest and largest 
educational institutions in the United States, In each stage of its 
development the University has striven to achieve new goals which 
would distinguish it from other institutions, and in many phases the 
accomplishments have been outstanding. Today, the University 
of Maryland still aims to improve every aspect of its educational 
structure in order to make the thousands of men and women who 
have dedicated a part of their lives to the institution justly proud. 

In 1807 the idea of a University of Maryland became a reality 
with the establishment of the University of Baltimore and the College 
of Medicine, the sixth such institute in America. The College of 
Medicine, striving to achieve new goals, was the first medical school 
to place dissection as a compulsory part of the curriculum and to 
create an independent chair of feminine diseases. The second phase 
in the growth of the University came in 1871 when the Maryland 
College of Pharmacy was added to the University of Baltimore, and 
a chair of analytical chemistry was placed in the curriculum. The 
Maryland School of Law, the fourth law school in the United States, 
was added to the Baltimore campus in 1882. During the same year, 
the School of Dentistry was founded, the first dental college to be 
established in the world and the first institution dedicated to the 
only profession that is distinctly American. In 1889 the Maryland 
School of Nursing was founded by Louisa Parson with the coop- 
eration of Florence Nightingale. 

The College Park campus of the University of Maryland began 
in 1856 as the Maryland Agricultural College after a group of 
southern Maryland farmers purchased the estate of Charles B. Calvert, 
Esquire. The Maryland Agricultural College became the third such 
institution established in the western hemisphere. Then in 1862 
Congress passed the Morrill Land Grant Act which provided the 
Maryland Agricultural College an opportunity to be one of the first 
to benefit from federal aid to education. After a disastrous fire in 
1912 and a tragic decrease in enrollment due to World War I, the 



Agricultural College found it necessary to apply for further state aid. 
Maryland State College officially began in 1914 when the Maryland 
State Legislature bought all the stock in the College. 

The next major phase in the growth occurred in 1920 when 
Maryland State College and the University of Baltimore were united 
to form the University of Maryland. The College of Special and 
Continuation Studies was established in 1940 to provide an overseas 
program for servicemen and dependents of government employees. 
This program has continued to grow and it now serves twenty-five 
countries on four continents. 

Both the Baltimore campus and the College Park campus have 
grown immensely in the past few years. Recently a new four-year 
division was established at Catonsville which is now in its second 
academic year. The College Park campus has also experienced 
recent additions with the opening in 1965 of the Adult Education 
Center, the Fine Arts Building which houses the J. Millard Tawes 
Theater, the Education Building, and the Computer Science Center. 
In 1966 the first portion of the Ellicott City Complex was completed 
including a dining hall; the additions to H. J. Patterson Hall and 
the Physical Sciences Building were also finished. With this fall 
will come the opening of the Space Science Center and an addition 
to the Physics-Astronomy Building, including the unveiling of the 
Cyclotron. Another addition to the College Park campus is in the 
area of the curriculum: the College of Architecture and the College of 
Library Science have been formally established with the new deans 
to be named this fall. 

The University of Maryland continues to grow in all areas 
of educational achievement. The University ranked eighth in the 
nation this year in total enrollment, which is proof that the University 
is growing physically as well. Over 130,000 men and women have 
received degrees from the University and the number is rapidly 
increasing. The University of Maryland is truly a vital part of 
higher education in the United States. 



History of the Colleges 



College of Agriculture 

This college, the oldest division of the University of Maryland, 
headed by Dean Gordon M. Cairns, was originally founded in 1856 
as the Maryland Agriculture College. Graduates of the College of 
Agriculture enter a wide variety of careers in the field of agricultural 
science, technology, and business. Symons Hall is the headquarters 
of the College of Agriculture. 

College of Arts and Sciences 

The College of Arts and Sciences through its seventeen depart- 
ments offers majors in most of the basic academic fields in the 
humanities, social sciences, biological and physical sciences, mathe- 
matics and the fine arts. The College was founded in 1921 when 
the School of Liberal Arts and the School of Chemistry were merged. 

College of Business and Public Administration 

Dr. Donald W. O'Connell is Dean of the College of Business 
and Public Administration. The College offers degree programs 
through its six departments: Business Administration, Economics, 
Geography, Government and Politics, Journalism and Information 
Systems Management. Within the Department of Business Adminis- 
tration eight different fields of concentration are offered, ranging 
from accounting to transportation. The Departments of Geography, 
Government and Politics and Journalism also offer alternative pro- 
grams, including, for example, specializations in urban geography, 
public administration and news-editorial work. 

College of Education 

Preparing young men and women to teach is the main goal of 
the College of Education. Under the direction of Dean Vernon 
Anderson the College offers courses in early childhood, elementary, 
secondary, and industrial education. 



College of Engineering 

Since 1898, the College of Engineering has offered over 5000 
baccalaureate degrees. Presently, under Dean Robert B. Beckmann, 
the school offers degrees in: aeronautical engineering, chemical 
engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical 
engineering and fire protection. 

College of Home Economics 

In commemoration of its fiftieth anniversary, the College of 
Home Economics is renaming its present building in honor of its 
first dean. A plaque with the new name, Marie Mount Hall, will 
be placed on the building by Dean Erna Chapman in a special 
ceremony on October 21, 1967. 

College of Physical Education 

The College of Physical Education was founded by Dean Lester 
M. Fraley eighteen years ago. A Bachelor of Science degree is 
given to the students who successfully complete course work in 
one of these fields: physical education, recreation, health, dance, 
and physical therapy. 



University Traditions 



In an institution so deeply rooted in the past, there will 
naturally be a number of long established customs and events that 
have become a traditional part of life at a university and the 
University of Maryland is no exception. 

The most reknown of these customs is the terrapin mascot. 
"Testudo," who watches over all University students from his 
pedestal in front of McKeldin Library. Rubbing the bronze ter- 
rapin's nose is said to bring special luck to any student. In 1965 
Testudo n, a mechanical counterpart to Testudo I, was added and 
can be seen at sport events. 



From the steeple of the University Chapel, the chimes ring out 
the strains of "Maryland, My Maryland" every hour on the hour to 
warn all late students. At Christmas time the alma mater is replaced 
by traditional carols. 

No account of the University's traditions would be complete 
without mentioning the Kissing Tunnel. This secluded spot may be 
found under Chapel Drive in front of the Chapel and is especially 
popular in early fall and in late spring. 

Band Day 

Sponsored by the SGA, Maryland high school bands combine 
their talents and perform during the half-time of an October football 
game. 

Homecoming 

Highlighting the football season is Homecoming. On the eve of 
the Homecoming game, organizations and residence halls construct 
elaborate floats which are viewed and judged in the pre-game parade. 
During half-time the Homecoming queen is crowned. Concluding the 
day's events is the Homecoming Dance in Reckord Armory.

Away Weekend 

This event, sponsored by the SGA, provides an opportunity for 
University of Maryland students to attend an away football game. 
Arrangements for transportation and tickets are planned in advance. 



Parents' Day 

Sponsored by the SGA and held in the early fall, Parents' Day 
is a special day dedicated to the parents who are invited to attend 
the football game and visit residences having open house. Special 
recognition is given to the parents at this time through a variety 
of campus-wide programs. 

Class Proms 

Each year the Freshmen, Sophomore and Junior Proms are 
held at Indian Springs Country Club. The social events of the 
year are culminated by the Senior Prom, a formal dinner dance, 
which is held at the Sheraton Park Hotel. 



Campus Chest Week 

In the spring, Campus Chest sponsors this fund-raising project 
for charity. During this two-week period penny votes are cast in 
the Ugly Man and Miss Campus Chest Queen contests. On Friday 
night, College Casino brings legal gambling to campus for the 
benefit of charity. 



Spring Weekend 

In the spring the SGA provides top flight talent at the Spring 
Weekend Dance and a series of other events. This week-end last 
year on campus featured Smokey Robinson and the Miracles as 
well as Ian and Sylvia and Simon and Garfunkel. 



Orientation Week 

Orientation Week is designed to introduce new students to 
the University. Among the week's activities are the President's 
Convocation, the Dink Debut mixer, and a cultural event during 
which a nationally known entertainer will perform in an outdoor 
concert. A series of individual group meetings designed to familiarize 
the new students with campus activities and University life are also 
planned. The Freshmen Orientation Board urges all new students 
to attend these activities in order to gain a better understanding of 
the University, its organizations and its facilities. 

President's Convocation 

Each semester, the President of the University addresses the 
student body in Cole Field House on current policies of the University. 
President Elkins' address is comparable to the President's State of 
the Union Address. Classes are dismissed for this event in order to 
enable all to attend. 




Administration 

Freshmen should be familiar with the members of the Adminis- 
stration and their responsibilities, for they coordinate and direct all 
phases of University life. They are always anxious to meet students, 
listen to their views, and help them with their problems. 

President of the University 

Dr. Wilson H. Elkins was named the twenty-first President of 
the University in 1954 after serving as President of Texas Western 
College. Earlier, he had filled the presidency at San Angelo Junior 
College and had taught history at the University of Texas. 

Dr. Elkins is a graduate of the University of Texas where he 
earned both B.A. and M.A. degrees and eight varsity letters in 
football, basketball and track. A member of Sigma Nu fraternity, 
he served as President of the Student Association and was also 
selected for membership in Phi Beta Kappa, Omicron Delta Kappa, 
Phi Alpha Theta. Tau Kappa Alpha, and Alpha Phi Omega. He was 
a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University and earned his Bachelor of 
Letters and Doctor of Philosophy degrees there. 

In addition to serving as President of the Middle Stales As- 
sociation of Colleges and Secondary Schools, Dr. Elkins is a member 
of the executive committee of the Southern Regional Education Board.

Something to Strive For 



Robert Frost once said, "The world is full of working people, 
some willing to work and the rest willing to let them." For those

the University. A very few of these include Alpha Lambda Delta, 
Diadem, Diamond, Kalegethos, Mortor Board, Omicron Delta Kappa, 
Phi Eta Sigma, Phi Beta Kappa-Gamma of Maryland and Phi Kappa

All lost articles should be turned over to the Campus Police Office 
in the General Services Building where they can be claimed. A 
receipt should be requested upon surrender of such items. If the 
article is unclaimed after a short waiting period, the finder can then 
take possession. After 90 days, all unclaimed articles are turned over 
to charity. The loss of textbooks should be reported to both book- 
stores at once. It is recommended that students put their names 
in their textbooks. Administrative offices on campus receiving lost 
articles forward them to Campus Police for reclaiming. 



Office of Intermediate Registration 

The Office of Intermediate Registration was instituted to serve 
students who have made a basic error in their choice of college, 
who are not progressing satisfactorily in their chosen programs, and 
who have decided on a change of goal. 

By registering in the OIR program, a student not meeting the 
academic requirement for changing colleges is able to begin 
immediate study in his new program pending approval by the 
Director of OIR. The program works through the use of intensive 
and broadly gauged advisement facilities. It provides advisors who 
have an interest in the individual and a reliable knowledge of the 
inner workings of every college within the University. 

Post Offices

What is a Union ? 

A Union could best be characterized as the living room of 
the campus. It is the focal point of cultural and social activity for the 
Lniversity community. Its purpose is to provide the University 
"family" with the programs and facilities to satisfy many out-of- 
classroom tastes and needs. The activities and services offered by 
the Student Union are for the enjoyment of all the members of the 
University and are utilized according to individual interests in such 
areas as meetings, lectures, dances and receptions, music, movies, 
or simply relaxing over a cup of coffee or in a casual conversation 
with friends. The Union is an important contributor in the 
development of the student with respect to building sound citizenship 
and acting as a workshop in human relations.

Student Government Association 

The SGA is the governing body for all University students. 
It protects their rights and interests and coordinates student 
activities and services. 

The individual student plays a most important role in the 
proper functioning of the SGA: he pays a student activity fee during 
registration which provides the working capital for SGA; he elects 
the people who represent him as officers; and through these officers he 
decides on the allocation of money as well as on many other policies. 

Like the national government, the SGA is composed of executive, 
legislative, and judicial branches. 

Executive Branch 

Serving as a liaison with the student body, the faculty and the 
administration of the University, the executive branch of the Cabinet, 
is responsible for determining student policies. It acts on motions 
passed by the legislature and appoints and supervises SGA com- 
mittees. 

1967-68 Members of the Cabinet 

President Tom Hendrickson 

Vice-President Bill Landes 

Secretary Bunny McKenna 

Treasurer Jerry Fleischer 

Senior Class President Tom Aaron 

Junior Class President Ricky Lamb

Legislative Branch 

The primary function of the Legislature is to act on proposed 
legislation and submit bills to the cabinet for further action. Most 
bills are concerned with the allocation of money and the planning 
of the annual budget for student organizations submit their budgets 
to the Legislature. Meetings are open to all members of the student 
body and suggestions are welcomed.

Judicial Branch 

Judicial power which is granted by the Faculty Senate Committee 
on Student Discipline is vested in six campus judicial boards. The 
Judiciary Office refers cases to the various student Judiciary boards 
according to the jurisdictional area of the student Judiciary boards 
and the seriousness and nature of the offense. The student Judiciary 
boards in turn make recommendations to the Judiciary Office for 
disciplinary action, if any, to be taken. The student judiciaries 
operate upon the basis of fundamental fairness during their hearing 
procedures; they strive to consider each case individually rather than 
matching penalties for specific offenses, and are more rehabilitative 
than punitive in their philosophy. Each student has an opportunity 
to appeal the decision reached to the next highest student Judicial 
board. Appeals of Central Student Court cases are heard by the 
Faculty Senate Committee on Student Discipline. 

CENTRAL STUDENT COURT is an appellate board holding 
jurisdictional power over other student judicial groups. The nine 
justices hear appeals of decisions of other boards. They also may 
hear cases involving violations of University regulations by student 
organizations or groups of students. Members must have at least 
sophomore standing and a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade- 
point-average. 

STUDENT TRAFFIC COURT is composed of nine members 
who render decisions on cases concerning violation of campus 
traffic rules and regulations or other offenses involving the use of an 
automobile. 

THE ASSOCIATED WOMEN STUDENTS JUDICIAL BOARD 
is comprised of eight women, representing residence hall, sorority, 
and commuter women. Its jurisdiction includes major violations of 
University regulations by women students and appellate cases from 
residence hall judicial boards. 

MEN'S LEAGUE JUDICIAL BOARD is responsible for hear- 
ing serious violations of University regulations and cases involving 
repeated incidents of socially unacceptable conduct on the part of

residence hall judicial boards. Membership is gained through 
application. The nine members must have attained sophomore 
standing and have achieved a cumulative grade-point-average of 2.5. 

PANHELLENIC JUDICIAL BOARD is made up of the 
executive officers of the Panhellenic Council. This board has 
jurisdiction over sororities in cases involving infraction of Pan- 
hellenic rules. 

THE INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL JUDICIAL BOARD 
deals with infraction of Inter-fraternity Council rules. They may 
also be delegated responsibility by Central Student Court for in- 
vestigating and ruling on violations of University regulations by a 
fraternity. Sitting on the board are five fraternity men. 



vStudent Government Committees 

The Student Government Association operates through com- 
mittees which are open to all students interested. Students may 
secure applications from the SGA office in rm. 114 of the Student 
Union. Notices of specific openings are announced in the Diamond- 
back. 

CULTURAL COMMITTEE: Throughout the year numerous 
cultural events are planned and coordinated by the Cultural Com- 
mittee. The committee includes in its calendar well-known enter- 
tainers, symphony concerts, operas. University Theater, Gymkana 
and Flying Follies. 

ELECTIONS BOARD: Members of the Elections Board super- 
vise all campus elections. The Board controls balloting at the polls, 
handles the complaints registered against illegal practices of candi- 
dates, and supervises the IBM counting of ballots. 

FINANCE COMMITTEE: Members of this committee are 
selected by the SGA Treasurer. Its purpose is to investigate campus 
organizations requesting funds, to recommend allocations to the SGA, 
and ultimately to investigate organizational spending. 

40 



FRESHMAN ORIENTATION BOARD: FOB guides freshmen 
through their first week on campus, helping them to become famiHar 
with the campus and to feel a part of it. FOB coordinates and 
schedules all activities during New Student Orientation Week, 
including lectures, tours, assemblies, dances, a pep assembly, and big 
name entertainment. 

PEOPLE-TO-PEOPLE: Members play an important role in 
helping to orient foreign students to university life in the United 
States. The committee sponsors the Big Sister-Brother program 
and social and cultural events, all of which are designed to bring 
foreign students into meaningful relationships with Maryland 
students. Participation in this group offers rewarding and memor- 
able experiences. 




41 



Panhellenic Council 

The Panhellenic Council which operates as the governing body 
for the entire sorority system organizes various inter-sorority projects. 
Panhell, in conjunction with the faculty and administration, make 
rules concerning sorority membership, selection, pledging and 
initiation. Two delegates from each of the eighteen sorority houses 
on campus comprise the Panhell organization. 

Sorority rush is divided into several rounds of parties. Each 
rushee is required to visit each sorority during the initial open houses. 
After attending the Set of Eight and Set of Four parties, the rushee 
limits her selection to two houses in the preference Teas. Rushing 
culminates in a period of pledging during which the student strives 
for the 2.2 average required for initiation. 



Inter-Fraternity Council 

Each fraternity house has one delegate to IFC, the coordinating 
body of the fraternity system. The function of the Council is to 
coordinate the activities of the 24 houses and to promote the welfare 
of fraternities as a group. Stag and dated parties comprise much 
of the fraternity system's formal rush. Rush ends in pledging, a 
period during which the new member learns about the fraternity 
and works to earn the 2.0 academic average required for initiation. 
While only a few sororities hold informal rush in the spring, the 
fraternity system holds both an informal and a formal rush at this 
time. 



Residence Hall Council 

Residence Hall Council, the governing system coordinating 
the many campus residence halls, serves as the link between dorm 
residents and the SGA. 



42 



Each dormitory sends a representative to its particular Area 
Council. The president and vice-president of the Area Councils 
sit on the RHC Executive Council. In turn, the president and vice- 
president of RCH hold positions on the SGA cabinet. 

Some of the activities of RHC include a workshop for new 
officers, Variety Night and a Presents featuring nationally known 
entertainment. Freshmen can join its various committees by getting 
in contact with the dorm president or representative to the Area 
Council. 




Simon and Garfunkel appeared as part of the RHC Presents 
last spring. 



43 



Men's League 

Representing the male students at the University, the Men's 
League handles regulations pertaining to all men and promotes the 
educational, cultural, social, and athletic welfare of all under- 
graduate men. Like AWS, its female counterpart, Men's League 
coordinates various activities such as the intramural program and 
the Senior Awards Banquet. 



Associated Women Students 

Better known as AWS, this organization was established to 
unify all women students. It functions throughout the year to 
promote self-government in women's residence halls and sororities. 
It fosters academic excellence and community service programs as 
well as other special activities like the Christmas Choral Program 
in the Chapel, the Big Sister and Commuter Affiliation Programs, 
the Women's Seminar Series, and the Bridal Fair, 

The Women's Seminar Series is a week long symposium of 
lectures, films, discussions and other programs devoted to con- 
temporary controversial topics. 

The organization of AWS is based upon election and appoint- 
ment. The officers and class representatives are elected in the spring 
by a vote of all women students. Later, in the fall, the officers 
appoint the chairman of the individual committees. These students 
make up the AWS Executive Council — the actual representative 
government of AWS. 

The first activity sponsored by AWS in the fall is the Big 
Sister Program. Each freshman woman and transfer student re- 
ceives her own Big Sister, a specially chosen upper-classman who 
introduces and explains the problems, privileges, and opportunities, 
that are associated with the University. 

In the spring AWS sponsors its newest event, The Women's 
Seminar Series. 




In addition, for the prospective bride, AWS in conjunction 
with Bride and Home Magazine presents the Bridal Fair. Displays 
of household and personal items such as trousseau fashions, china, 
crystal, silver, and kitchenware are presented. The fashion show is 
the highlight of the evening featuring clothes for the mother of the 
bride, attendants, and that all -important gown and trousseau for 
the bride herself. 



45 



University Commuters' Association 

The University Commuters' Association offers the commuter 
many opportunities to become involved in campus life. The UCA 
serves as a link between the commuter and residents of dorms and 
Greek houses as well as enabling him to become active in student 
government, campus politics, and student organizations. 

The Commuters' Den and the UCA Office are located in the 
basement of the Student Union. The Den provides a convenient 
place for commuters to meet and relax between classes. 

The UCA sponsors many social and cultural events throughout 
the year. The annual Playboy Ball is the most important dance of 
the fall semester. Other activities include casual dances, Friday 
afternoon coke dates, and the annual Homecoming float-building 
party. The Spring Banquet for installation of officers is a highlight 
of the spring semester. 

Carpools for commuters are arranged at the beginning of each 
semester in the Den. The UCA also sponsors a Weekend Trip 
Service for students wishing to share expenses or driving with others. 

The UCA is involved in all facets of University life. Not only 
does the UCA offer social events, intramural teams, tutoring services, 
and exam files, it also offers the many friendships formed with other 
commuters in the Den.

A Word To The Wise 



Now you're in. Your classes are scheduled and your books are 
bought. But to feel a true part of the University community, there 
is one subject yet to be considered — extracurricular activities. 

To the members of the Class of 1971 who will be quick to take 
advantage of the diversified program of activities, "on the hill" 
assimilation into campus life will come easy. 

In the fall semester, all organizations send out a campus-wide 
search for enthusiastic newcomers. Publications, professional groups, 
special interest clubs, and student government committees extend a 
hearty welcome to all freshmen seeking activities. 

Activities must be approached from the beginning of the college 
career and should be geared to the student's own particular interests. 
By becoming active in one or two activities in the freshman year, 
a student lays the foundation for key positions as an upperclassman. 

You're here, of course, "to concentrate on the books" but 
delaying your participation in activities will only hinder any chances 
for advancement later on in your college career. Statistics have 
proved "that the students who find college the most difficult are 
not those with too many activities, but those with too much in- 
activity."

. , . If You'd Like to Serve

. . . To Be a Greek 

During one's stay at the University of Maryland, it becomes 
important to identify with some group. This identification gives 
the student a feeling of belonging. Fraternity men and sorority 
women play an active part in sports, student government, publica- 
tions, honoraries, clubs and all facets of college life. Besides campus 
activities, Greek organizations also serve the community with their 
philanthropic projects. 

Among the annual events sponsored by the IFC are IPC Pre- 
sents, Harmony Hall, IFC Ball, and Greek Week. Well known 
entertainment is provided by the H'C in the fall. In past years, 
Presents has featured such stars as Harry Belafonte and Sammy 
Davis, Jr. Harmony Hall, which is sponsored by Phi Kappa Tau 
fraternity, is a revival of barbershop quartet competition. During 
the course of the evening in which the event is held, new members 
are tapped for Diamond and Kalegethos. Outstanding scholarship, 
athletic and service trophies are presented to deserving individuals 
and fraternities at an awards dinner which precedes the IFC Ball. 
Attending this formal are the fraternity men and their dates. 

The IFC in conjunction with Panhel sponsors two Greek Weeks, 
one in the fall and one in the spring. Greek Week in the fall is 
of a more serious nature, opening with the rededication program in 
the chapel. It also includes Skit Night and the Pledge Formal. 
Spring Greek Week is of a lighter nature. In the past years it has 
included chariot races, phone booth stuffing contests, tug-of-wars, bike 
races and pie eating contests. Highlighting the week are Sorority 
Olympics sponsired by Lambda Chi Alpha and the IFC Sing, 
sponsored by Delta Delta Delta. 

Greeks strive in all areas of University activities. If you think 
that you might like "to be a Greek," watch for publicity in the fall 
which will explain the mechanics of rush.

. . . For Those In Maryland ROTC 

Air Force ROTC 

The AFROTC objective is to place on active duty lieutenants 
who demonstrate dedication to their assignments, willing acceptance 
of responsibility, critical and creative thinking and the ability to 
speak and write effectively. All men have an opportunity to 
participate in the Air Force ROTC program and become members 
of the aerospace team. A two-year program is planned for the 
junior and senior years; freshmen may enter the four-year program. 
Both programs are preceded by a summer Field Training Course in 
which cadets get their first exposure to Air Force life and activities 
and work with cadets from all over the United States. Men entering 
the four-year program may compete for a full financial assistance 
grant. Qualified cadets from both programs may take the Flight 
Instruction Program and earn their private pilot license. All cadets 
are entitled to many of the benefits offered to regular Air Force 
personnel. 

Arnold Air Society 

"The Arnold Air Society is an honorary professional organization 
of AFROTC cadets which promotes the interests and ideals of the 
United States Air Force, and provides opportunities for these young 
men to better prepare themselves for future leadership positions in 
the USAF." Every semester, second semester freshmen through 
seniors rush the society and are welcomed into a six week pledge 
program. These men, in addition to University and civic activities, 
sponsor the ROTC Military Ball and the Angel Flight-Arnold Air 
Force football game. 

Vandenberg Guard 

Each semester any qualified ROTC member may pledge this 
service and military fraternity. Pledges are initiated at a banquet 

58 



held at the end of the semester. In addition to participation in 
intercollegiate competitions in which the team displays its trick 
drilling with sabres, the men in the Guard take part in varied 
charitable, civic, and social functions. 

Pershing Rifles 

Members of this national military honorary fraternity and 
service organization serve as the University's honor guard. The two 
drill teams perform both precision and trick drilling using bayonets. 
PR represents the University and AFROTC at intercollegiate drill 
competitions. All qualified men, from first semester freshmen 
through seniors, may participate in the one-semester pledge program. 

Angel Flight 

The women in Angel Flight serve as the official hostesses for 
the University and for the Corps of Cadets. This national service 
organization works closely with the men of the Arnold Air Society, 
serving as secretaries for cadets and officers. Their community, 
university, social and charity projects cover a wide scope. All 
interested women from second semester freshmen through first 
semester juniors may sign up for Angel Flight each semester. 




. . , For the Professional Future 

Professional organizations are helpful both to those who have 
and those who have not decided on their career. Professional groups 
provide the opportunity to meet other students with similar vocational 
interests. They also provide the opportunity to gain an additional 
dimension of education. By showing the various facets involved 
in a career choice the members of the professional groups are helped 
to decide at an early stage of their career development, exactly 
which aspect of a particular profession they prefer. 

For those who do not have a definite career in mind the meetings 
sponsored by professional groups offer the opportunity to learn about 
various professional areas of interest, as well as the best method of 
preparation for future career success. While the professional 
organizations differ in degrees of activity, national affiliation and 
academic requirements, their professional orientation and academic 
emphasis provide a firm basis for their usefulness in career planning. 
Listed below are professional fraternities, sororities and clubs 
that are members of the Council of Professional Organizations. 
The Council was formed to strive for a unified body of professional 
groups, to act as a channel of communication between these groups 
and to improve the academic and professional climate of the Univer- 
sity. Those students who wish further information on any of the 
following groups may contact the SGA Office (ext. 2801).

# Y' v'^ 



Maryland Athletics 



Football 

Bob Ward is the new football coach at Maryland but Coach Ward 
is not new to Maryland football. Maryland's first Ail-American, he 
hopes to instill this same winning spirit in his players. One of 
his first orders of business was to move the football team under 
one roof which will hopefully mean higher grades and stronger 
unity. Al Pastrana who set passing records last season will be 
leading the Terp attack this year aided by an improved running 
game. The first home game of the year will be on October 7 against 
Syracuse at Byrd Stadium. 



Cross Country and Track 

In cross country, Coach Jim Kehoe (22nd season) had another 
undefeated season in dual meets (6-0) and won the ACC Champion- 
ship for the third straight year with Milt Mathews showing out- 
standing running form. In indoor track. Maryland was undefeated 
in dual meet competition, earning an ACC Championship for the 
twelfth straight year. Jim Lee, spring star, was the IC4A Champion 
in the 60 yard dash. In outdoor track, Maryland was also undefeated 
in dual meets making them ACC Champions for the eleventh straight 
year and IC4A Champions. Coach Kehoe named Frank Costello 
as a "world class performer" after his record 7T' high jump mark. 
He again cited Jim Lee as outstanding due to his performance in 
the 220 yard event in which he took third place in the NCAA. 

Wrestling 

William "Sully" Krouse, leader of the "Krousemen," has guided 
his wrestling team to a perfect record. In Maryland's fourteen years 
in the ACC the Grapplers have been champions every year. This 
year should be no exception as last year's star-studded team was 
dominated by many underclassmen. Outstanding last year and 
returning for more action are Keith Billotte (130)', Gobel Kline 
(152), Garry Blood (167) and Howard Zachmann (HVW). This 
year Maryland will be trying to regain national ranking as it meets 
some of the nation's top teams. 

Soccer 

Last year, as in the past 22 years, Maryland was named 
Conference Champion in soccer. Especially interesting was the fact 
that the entire starting team was composed of sophomores. Coach 
Doyle Royal expects an even stronger team next year due to the 
return of Guy Fraiture who missed last year and three outstanding 
freshmen: Laurence L. Ruhs, Peter Milhado, and Ali Kadaster. The 
two big men to watch this year will be AU-American Alvaro Bitten- 
court and Rufus Wallace as Maryland hopes to keep its stranglehold 
on the ACC Championship. 

67 



Lacrosse 

Under the tutelage of offensive Coach John Howard and 
defensive Coach Rennie Smith, the Maryland Stickmen hope to rank 
among the top three teams in the nation if not to capture outright 
the National Championship. This year's team should have an 
exceptionally strong mid-field since twelve returning lettermen will 
fill these positions. The attack positions were hurt by the loss of 
AU-Americans Jack Heim and Allen Lowe but still figure to be 
formidable with returning lettermen Steve La Vaute and Jerry Breslee. 
Starring defensively are Norman "Hutch" Vander Schuyt and Jack 
Dailey. Maryland expects stiff competition from always strong 
Army, Navy, and Johns Hopkins. 




Swimmino; 



& 



"Mr. Swimming" is Coach Bill Campbell who last year coached 
the Swimming Terps to a fine 11-2 record and third place in the ACC 
Championships. This year's team will be led by seniors Bruce 
Alston (Freestyle), Doug Springer (Breaststroke) and Wayne 
Pawlowski (Breaststroke). Maryland also has four outstanding 
juniors returning; Morris Spitzer (Freestyle), Mike Golub (Free- 
style), Dave Heim (Distance Freestyle) and Jim Martin (Butterfly). 
Two outstanding freshmen, Jack Levenson and JoeReid (co-captains) , 
will be valuable additions to the team. The high point of last season 
came when Maryland beat Navy for the fifth straight year. This 
was Coach Campbell's 100th victory and he celebrated it by doing 
a one and one-half front flip with a one-half twist off the high board, 
fully clothed ! 



Basketball 

When H. "Bud" Millikan stepped down from his post as varsity 
basketball coach at the end of last season, it marked the end of a 
seventeen-year era. Frank Fellows, the man named to succeed 
Millikan, is expected to preserve some of the Miflikan brand of 
basketball. A hot-shot guard under Millikan during his playing 
days, and, for the last seven years his right-hand man as assistant 
coach. Fellows will take over a varsity squad with a 11-14 record. 
While he will depend on returnees Pete Johnson, Bill Jones, and Rick 
Drescher, holdovers from Millikan's last varsity squad, his "biggest" 
help should come from his sophomores. At (i'T\ sophomore Will 
Hetzel will be the tallest member of the squad. Hetzel led his fresh- 
man team in scoring and rebounding and could be the best at Mary- 
land since the days of Gary Ward. Along with Hetzel, Tom Milroy 
and Homer Warren will move up from last year's undefeated frosh 
team to fight for starting spots. 

69 



Baseball 

Led by the hitting of all-ACC outfielder Jack Hetrick plus one 
of the toughest pitching staffs in the conference, Coach Jack Jackson's 
varsity baseball team will be strong contenders for the conference 
pennant this spring. Tom Bradley, Mark Harris, George Manz, 
Mike Herson and Phil Corddry compose a mound corps outstanding 
in speed, control and experience. 



Tennis 

The last time Maryland won the ACC Championship was in 
1964, but Coach Doyle Royal thinks this year's team is capable of 
winning the title because of returning lettermen Rich Harrington, 
Frank Kready, John Sheaffer, and Dave Werchen. Coach Royal 
expects good performances as well from Fulton Liss and Ray Buckluw, 
both ineligible last year. The ACC Championships will be played 
here on the 4, 5, and 6th of May. Maryland will also co-host the 
Annual Cherry Blossom Tournament held here in March. 



Golf 

The golf team, under the excellent coaching of Mr. Frank 
Cronin has never had a losing season since its formation in 1946. 
Teams faced by the squad include Duke, North Carolina, North 
Carolina State, Virginia, Clemson, Dartmouth, Princeton, and George- 
town. Terp squads of previous years have received recognition as 
ACC Champions and have placed players on the Ail-American teams. 



Intramurals 

The intramurals program offers everyone an opportunity to 
participate in athletics and to develop sportsmanship, leadership, and 
team spirit. 

70 



Coach Jim Kehoe coordinates one of the largest intramural 
programs in the country. Last year, over 10,000 people participated 
in team sports such as basketball, bowling, football, softball, swim- 
ming, and volleyball. Individual sports including badminton, and 
wrestling are also available. 

Intramurals are open to Greeks and independents in three 
respective leagues — the fraternity, open, and dorm league. 



Women's Recreational Association 

The Women's Recreational Association is composed of all 
undergraduate women who automatically become members when they 
matriculate. This student organization is governed by elected officers 
and representatives from the dormitories, sororities, and the com- 
muters. Although organized for the purpose of sports, the WRA 
provides an opportunity for leadership through committee chair- 
manships and group participation. 

Any freshman who loves sports but has little spare time should 
participate in the intramural program. The WRA offers archery, 
badminton, tennis, pingpong, volleyball, basketball, and a swimming 
marathon at various times throughout the year. Women also 
compete against various colleges in such sports as hockey, basketball, 
tennis, lacrosse, swimming, and volley ball. Some of the schools in 
the competition are American, George Washington, Trinity, Mary- 
mount, and Gallaudet. 

Interest groups sponsored by WRA provide instruction in tennis, 
ice skating, self-defense, and horseback riding. Affiliated clubs of 
WRA include: Aqualiners, Modern Dance, and Fencing. WRA also 
sponsors other events, the Freshman Picnic held during Freshman 
Orientation Week which attempts to interest the freshmen women in 
the WRA program, the Hockey, Tennis, Golf Sports Day held in the 
fall, and Spring Banquet during which trophies are given to the 
intramural winners and new members are inducted into Sigma Tau 
Epsilon, the WRA honorary. 

71 



Cheerleaders 

The cheerleaders always perform at home football and basket- 
ball games as well as at some lacrosse and baseball games. Tryouts 
which are open to everyone except seniors are held the week preced- 
ing the last home football game. 



Color Guard 

Spirited and high-stepping describes the eight girls who form 
the color guard of the University marching band. These girls, 
complimented by four alternates, carry the Maryland flag as well as 
those of Atlantic Coast Conference rivals: Clemson, Duke, North 
Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wake 
Forest. Tryouts for a position on the color guard are held in the 
spring. 



M-Club 

The M-Club honors Maryland athletes who have shown out- 
standing skill in their particular sport and have earned varsity 
letters. M-Club sponsors the Outstanding Intramural Athlete of 
the Year Award and several athletic scholarships.
