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 fifth 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 Parsons 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 sudden decrease in enrollment because of 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 1947 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. In 1959 its name was changed to 
University College. 

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 third 
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 Computer Science Center. 
The Ellicott Complex should be complete by the end of 1970, includ- 
ing the two new dormitories, La Plata and Leonardtown. Last Fall, 
the Space Science Center and an addition to the Physics-Astronomy 
Building were completed. Maryland is fortunate enough to have its 
own cyclotron, one of the few in use on college campuses today. The 
College Park campus has recently been expanded not only physically 
but academically as well ; the College of Architecture and the College 
of Library Science were formally established in 1967. 

The University of Maryland continues to grow in all areas of 
educational achievement. Fall statistics indicated the University 
ranked thirteenth in the nation this year in total enrollment and the 
College Park campus is fourth largest in the country. Over 135,000 
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 

The College of Agriculture, chartered in 1856, is the oldest 
division of the University of Maryland. Headed by Dean Gordon 
M. Cairns, this college prepares students for careers in all aspects 
of agricultural sciences, technology, and business. Supplementing the 
general curriculum are the Agricultural Experiment Station and the 
Extension Service. The headquarters of this college is Symons Hall. 



College of Architecture 

On March 12, 1965, the Board of Regents approved the proposal 
of building an architectural school at the University of Maryland, 
the first such school in Maryland. The College of Architecture 
began last fall with the appointment of Dean John W. Hill and the 
faculty. This year fifty-four students entered the five year architec- 
tural program which leads to a Bachelor of Architecture degree. 
At the present time only an undergraduate degree may be obtained, 
but the college hopes to some day offer one or two options at the 
graduate level leading to the Master degree in Architecture. The 
College of Architecture is temporarily located in building DD in 
the Gulch. 



College of Arts and Sciences 

The College of Arts and Sciences, headed by Dr. Charles 
Manning, through its seventeen departments offers majors in most 
of the basic academic fields in the humanities, social sciences, 
biological and physical sciences, mathematics, and the fine arts. The 
College was founded in 1921 when the School of Liberal Arts and 
the School of Chemistry were merged. This past year a new depart- 
ment was added to the Fine Arts division, the dance department, 
headed by Dr. Dorothy Madden. 



College of Business and Public Administration 

The first curriculum in Commerce and Business Administration 
was offered in 1921 as a department in the College of Arts and 
Sciences. In 1942, the College of Business and Public Administration 
came into existence under its present name. Its six instructional 
departments which offer a broad range of curricula in professional 
fields and in social science disciplines are the Department of Business 
Administration, Economics, Geography, Government and Politics, 
Journalism, and Information Systems Management. Dean Donald 
O'Connell is the head of this college. 

College of Education 

The first professional teacher training at the University of 
Maryland began in the summer of 1912 with a course designed to 
prepare students to teach Agriculture. The College of Education 
was organized in 1920 for the purpose of preparing men and women 
to teach in colleges, secondary schools, elementary schools, kinder- 
garten, and nursery schools. Other students enrolled in the college 
also include those who are interested in such vocations as adminis- 
trative positions or librarians. This college is headed by Dean 
Vernon Anderson. 

College of Engineering 

The College of Engineering had its beginning in the first 
curriculum offered by the Maryland Agricultural College in 1859. 
Under the direction of Dean Robert Beckmann, this college offers 
Bachelor of Science degrees in mechanical engineering, civil engineer- 
ing, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, aeronautical engi- 
neering, and fire protection. 

College of Home Economics 

In 1918, the College of Home Economics became one of the 
first schools of home economics in the country to be organized 

5 



independently of agriculture or some other division. This college 
has a program for men and women interested in the social, econo- 
mical, scientifical and aesthetical aspects of homemaking and of 
family living in relation to the community. Dean Marjory Brooks 
is the head of the College of Home Economics which has its offices 
in the Marie Mount Hall. 

College of Physical Education, Recreation and Health 

Dr. Lester M. Fraley, the present dean, founded the College of 
Physical Education, Recreation and Health nineteen years ago. The 
college has two departments: the Department of Physical Education 
for men, located in Cole Field House, and the Department of Physical 
Education for women, located in the Preinkert Field House. A 
Bachelor of Science degree is given to the students who successfully 
complete course work in one of these fields: physical education, 
recreation, health, and physical therapy. 

Further information about any one of the colleges in the 
University of Maryland may be obtained through their individual 
offices. See Appendix for phone numbers.

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 college life. The University of 
Maryland is no exception. 

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

From the steeple of the University Chapel, the chimes ring out 
the strains of "Maryland, My Maryland" every hour on the hour. 
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. 

Orientation Week 

The activities of orientation week are designed to introduce new 
students to University life. The week's activities include the Parents' 
Welcome by President Elkins, Religious Receptions, Opening Assem- 
bly, small group meetings which allow freshman students to bring 
their personal problems to upperclassmen, a Dean's Reception, and 
the President's Convocation, at which President Elkins will officially 
greet new students and explain the purposes of the University. Other 
activities scheduled are the Organizations Day where representatives 
of the various clubs on campus answer questions and give out infor- 
mation; the Pep Rally which provides an opportunity for fresh- 
men to learn the alma mater ; the AWS Coke Date ; the WRA picnic ; 
and two dances, one sponsored by IFC and the other in the library 
parking lot. 



Also included in the week's activities will be the Guest Speaker 
assemblies; informal discussions by professors in the dormitories; 
organized athletic activities almost every afternoon of the week; the 
AWS Dutch Dinner; and the All University Night where several 
of the University's top talent groups will entertain new students. All 
new students are urged to attend these activities in order to gain a 
better understanding of the University, its organizations, and its 
facilities. 



Band Day 

Sponsored by the SGA, Maryland high school bands attend an 
October football game as guests of the University and provide the 
half-time entertainment. 



Homecoming 

Highlighting the football season are the Homecoming festivities. 
Residence halls and organizations construct elaborate floats which 
are viewed and judged in the pre-game parade. Sororities and 
fraternities build house decorations viewed before the game. Girls 
representing different residence units and organizations are escorted 
onto the field by ROTC men, and the Homecoming Queen is crowned 
by President Elkins. Concluding the day's festivities are buffets, 
parties, and a dance in Reckord Armory, which features well-known 
entertainment. 



Away Weekend 

This event, sponsored by the SGA, provides an opportunity for 
University of Maryland students to spend the weekend at another 
school. Last year, Maryland students enjoyed a basketball game at 
their away weekend at Penn State and a football game at their away 
weekend at the University of North Carolina. 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. Well-known bands, such as the 
Marvelettes and Little Anthony and the Imperials, provide the 
entertainment. The highlight of each evening is the crowning of 
the class prom queen. 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 several fund-raising proj- 
ects for charity. APO sponsors an Ugly Man and Miss Campus 
Chest Queen contest. Men's dormitories and fraternities nominate a 
candidate for Miss Campus Chest Queen. Women's dormitories and 
sororities nominate a candidate for Ugly Man. Winners are deter- 
mined by the organization that collects the most money per capita. 
Organizations can participate in various activities such as road- 
blocks and slave sales to raise money for their candidates. College 
Casino brings legalized gambling to campus for the benefit of charity. 
At this time the Ugly Man and Miss Campus Chest Queen are 
announced. 






Thanks for the memories . .

Spring Weekend 

Spring Weekend, which is sponsored by the SGA, brings top 
name entertainment to the University. Last year the "Happenings" 
and James and Bobby Purify performed at a dance in Reckord 
Armory. Bob Hope and the Serendipity Singers concluded the 
Spring Weekend activities Saturday evening in Cole Field House. 

President's Convocation 

Each spring President Elkins addresses the student body in Cole 
Field House on current and future directions of the University. 
Students are excused from class so that the entire student body can 
attend.

Administration 

Freshmen and new students should be familiar with the members 
of the Administration 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, president of the University of Maryland 
since September 1, 1954, has a background of outstanding achieve- 
ment in scholarship, leadership, and athletics. 

Born in Medina, Texas, in 1908, he attended the public schools 
of San Antonio and was graduated from the University of Texas 
in 1932 with both B.A. and M.A. degrees. While at the university, 
he earned eight varsity letters in football, basketball and track. He 
was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and in his senior year, he was elected 
president of the Student Association and captain of the basketball 
team. 

From 1933 to 1936, Dr. Elkins was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford 
University and earned his B. Litt. and Doctor of Philosophy degrees 
there. 

In 1936, he returned to the University of Texas to begin his 
professional career in education as a history instructor. 

Two years later, Dr. Elkins was named president of San Angelo 
(Texas) Junior College. In 1949, he was appointed president of 
Texas Western College, a branch of the University of Texas. He 
remained there until 1954 when he was named the twenty-first 
president of the University of Maryland. 

His administration at Maryland has been marked with a con- 
sistent strengthening of academic standards despite tremendous in- 
creases in student enrollment. On the main campus at College Park, 
enrollment has increased from 8,600 students in 1954 to 30,000 
this year. 

Under President Elkins' direction, extensive academic, research, 
and service programs of the university are conducted on the main 



campus at College Park, the downtown Baltimore campus, and the 
University of Maryland Baltimore County campus at Catonsville. 
Maryland State College at Princess Anne is a division of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. In addition, the University operates an overseas 
degree program in 25 countries on four continents for military and 
related personnel. 

Dr. Elkins is immediate past president of the Middle States 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, a member of the 
executive committee of the Southern Regional Education Board, the 
Boards of Trustees of the Washington Center for Metropolitan Studies 
and the Greater Washington Educational Television Association, and 
the Board of Visitors of the United States Naval Academy. He has 
been a director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond since 1963, 
served as deputy chairman in 1967, and is chairman of the Board of 
Directors for 1968. 

He is married to the former Dorothy Blackburn of Berclair, 
Texas, and has two daughters, Margaret and Carole (Mrs. Edward G. 
Neal) . Dr. Elkins is a member of the Episcopal Church.

New Vice President for Student Affairs 

Dr. J. Winston Martin assumed the position as Vice President

year-long search and mounting student interest in a successor for 
the former position of Executive Dean for Student Life at the 
University's College Park campus. 

Dr. Martin has been at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville 
since 1965 as Assistant to the Executive Dean of Student Affairs,

Something to Strive For 



According to James Bryant Conant, "Each honest calling, each 
walk of life, has its own elite, its own aristocracy based on excellence 
of performance." In order to recognize those who strive beyond 
average achievement in leadership and academics, there are well 
over 50 honoraries in varied fields at the University. 

To promote high scholastic achievement among freshmen women 
and to expand the cultural and intellectual atmosphere of the Univ- 
ersity is the main goal of ALPHA LAMBDA DELTA. Founded in 
1932, it is a national honorary sorority for freshmen women who have 
achieved a 3.5 average in their first or second semesters. Alpha 
Lambda Delta, along with the freshmen men's honorary, PHI ETA 
SIGMA, sponsors a tutorial service for freshmen students. The 
girls also serve as hostesses at University cultural activities. 

Freshmen men who have achieved a 3.5 average in their first 
or second semesters are eligible for membership in PHI ETA SIGMA. 
Members tutor freshmen students and give two banquets each year

Outstanding junior women who have attained a 2.5 average and 
who have performed service to the University are eligible for member- 
ship in DIADEM. Members, who are chosen at the close of their 
sophomore year, must show evidence of leadership and service. 
Diadem members usher, lead tours for visitors to campus, and 
sponsor philanthropic projects. 

Three junior or senior women who have made outstanding 
contributions to the campus and to their individual chapters are 
nominated from each sorority for membership in DIAMOND. Tap- 
ping is held twice a year: in the fall at Harmony Hall and in the 
spring at the Interfraternity Sing. 

Founded in 1957, KALEGETHOS is a Greek men's honorary. 
To be eligible for tapping, a fraternity man must have junior stand- 
ing, an overall average above the all men's average, and have excelled 
in three areas of emphasis: the individual fraternity chapter, the 
IFC system, and the campus. 

16 




After four and sometimes five years, graduation is certainly 
"Something to strive for". 



A 3.0 overall academic average, outstanding leadership in her 
campus activities, and service to the University are the qualifications 
for the senior women's honorary, MORTAR BOARD. Mortar Board 
sponsors the Mum Sale at Homecoming, and annually awards scholar-

undergraduate man can attain at the University. Members are

Books and Supplies: 

The Students' Supply Store, located in the basement of the 
Student Union Building, carries merchandise including required 
textbooks, novelties, class rings, limited art supplies, sweatshirts, 
greeting cards, and cosmetics. The store is open all year round, 
five days a week, from 8:35 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with special hours 
for the beginning of each semester. The store is owned and operated 
by the University of Maryland and after all obligations are met, 
profits go to the Student Union. Refunds and exchanges must be 
accompanied by cash receipts; refunds are picked up at the Cashier's 
Office in the North Administration Building. In addition, the store 
buys used books, paying one-half of the current list price for all 
texts that will be used the following semester. 

Alpha Phi Omega (APO), a service fraternity, sells texts in 
the Student Union during the first two weeks of each semester. 
Students can sell their books to APO for prices which they themselves 
determine. The advantage is that an individual may receive about 
75% of the original value of his book. Ten per cent is charged 
for the service and all profits go to charity. Students may buy used 
books here at a much lower price. APO handled over 9,000 books 
last year. 

The Maryland Book Exchange, located on College Avenue, sells 
new and used texts, and art, engineering, school, and office supplies. 
Cash refunds are given upon resale, and regular hours for the Mary- 
land Book Exchange are Monday thru Friday 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. 
and on Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. These hours are extended

Counseling Center: 

The Counseling Center in Shoemaker Building helps students 
who 1) are attempting to decide upon a major and what college of 
the University would be most appropriate for them; 2) are attempt- 
ing to formulate long-range plans; 3) need information about 
occupation or educational-vocational training opportunities; 4) have 
other concerns that they want to discuss with professional counselors. 
Both individual and group methods of counseling are used. Where 
psychological testing is appropriate in the counseling of students, 
tests of ability, interest, and personality are employed. Appointments 
can be made at the main desk in Shoemaker Building. Students are 
entitled to the services of the Center without charge since they pay an 
annual advisory and testing fee at registration time. 

The Center also sponsors a Reading and Study Skills Laboratory, 
which provides an extensive program for students motivated to 
improve their reading and listening skills, study methods, vocabulary, 
or spelling. Last year the center held a workshop for English 1 
students before they had their final. The workshops offer help in 
developing skills in expository writing found in English 1, 3, and 4.

Identification Cards: 

During registration a new student receives a color photo

student elections, to check out athletic equipment at Cole Field House 
and the Armory, and to use the golf course and tennis courts.

Office of Intermediate Registration 

The Office of Intermediate Registration was instituted in 1957 
to serve students who have made a basic error in their choice of 
college, who are not progressing satisfactorily in their chosen pro- 
grams, and who have decided on a change of goal. 

By registering in Intermediate Registration, a student who does 
not meet the academic requirement for changing colleges is able to 
begin immediate study in his new program after his record has 
been evaluated by the Dean of the college to which he hopes to 
transfer. 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. 

Placement and Credentials Service 

The primary objective of the Placement Service is to assist 
students in their career explorations — whether they seek information 
concerning careers in government, education, business, industry, or 
intend to pursue graduate study or military service. Especially help- 
ful to underclassmen is the Placement Library, which contains more 
than 500 graduate and professional school bulletins, information on 
financial aid for graduate study, several thousand job listings in 
various fields (including some summer employment and non-degree 
job information) , general career information, and reference materials 

31 



on nearly 1000 employers from government, industry, education, and 
military services. 

Each year more than 500 employers visit the campus to interview 
graduating students who have registered in advance for the on- 
campus interviewing program. Some of the employers who visit 
during the second semester also are interested in interviewing 
candidates for summer employment. 

The Placement Service, located in Shoemaker Building, is 
normally open from 8:30 a.m. — 4:30 p.m., Monday thru Friday. 
Extended hours during the months of February and March are 
announced through Diamondback and other campus media. 

Post Offices 

The University post office, located in the General Services 
Building on Baltimore Boulevard, receives and dispatches U.S. mail, 
including parcel post items and inter-office communications. How- 
ever, postal orders are not available here. The hours are: 
Monday — Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

the U.S. Post Office in College Park which is open 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 
p.m. Monday thru Friday, and 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. on Saturdays. 

Recreational Facilities 

The University offers many recreational facilities, supplemented 
by local community activities. The Student Union houses such 
recreational facilities as bowling alleys, televisions, a billiard room, 
and a hi-fi and stereo room. The Union also shows movies on 
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Also popular with many 
Maryland students are the dances held in the Student Union Ballroom 
featuring popular local bands. 

The Fine Arts Room, located on the fourth floor, in McKeldin 
Library, offers listening booths and a record room with records and 
record players. Such records as concerts by Mozart or plays by 
Shakespeare may help many students through their courses.

Student Government Association 

The Student Government Association (SGA) is concerned with 
the interests and activities of the students at Maryland. It aids 
students in obtaining a clear understanding of life at the University. 
SGA is an important link between the student body, the faculty, and 
the administration. Without SGA, communication between these 
three entities would be impossible. 

The Student Government Association has various functions. 
The Executive branch acts as a coordinator of student activities 
and services at Maryland. The responsibilities of the Legislative 
branch are primarily concerned with investigating and providing 
meaningful solutions for problems at the University. The Judicial 
branch of SGA protects the rights of a student through its com- 
plex court system. 



The Student Union is always busy during SGA elections.

Executive Branch 



Serving as a liaison between the student body, the faculty, 
and the administration, the Executive branch of SGA is the focal 
point to which all major campus organizations are drawn. The 
Cabinet which heads the student governing body at Maryland is 
responsible for determining student policies. It allocates money to 
various activities, supervises all SGA standing and special com- 
mittees and acts on bills passed by the legislature. The Cabinet 
also assumes the role of organizing events in relation to other 
universities across the nation. For example, last year Maryland 
along with other universities sponsored a mock presidential primary. 

The following people will serve in the Cabinet for the academic 
year 1968-69: 



President 

Vice-President 

Secretary 

Treasurer

Legislative Branch 

The Legislature is one of the most important components of 
the Student Government Association at Maryland. It is an organi- 
zation through which a student may convey his opinions on the 
policies of his university. 

43 



The primary function of the Legislature is to investigate and 
act on proposed legislation, and to submit bills to the Cabinet for 
further action. The subjects of legislation range from the allocation 
of SGA funds to an investigation of the University food service. 

Meetings of the legislature are open to all members of the student 
body. Suggestions and opinions are welcomed.

Student Government Committees 

The Student Government Association operates through the ac- 
tivities of special and standing committees. Each committee is 
open to all interested students. Students may secure applications 
from the SGA office, Rm. 114, in the Student Union. All notices 
of specific openings are announced in the Diamondback throughout 
each semester. SGA committees include: 



CULTURAL COMMITTEE: The National Symphony, Marcel 
Marceau, Anna Moffo, and the Dave Brubeck Quartet are but a few 
of the outstanding artists who performed at Maryland last year. 
Throughout the year numerous cultural events are coordinated by 
the Cultural Committee. Included in its plans are performances by 
well-known entertainers from the symphonic, dance, drama, jazz, 
voice and instrumental fields. University Theater, the Flying 
Follies, and Gymkana are also included on the calendar of the 
Cultural Committee. 

ELECTIONS BOARD: Members of the Elections Board super- 
vise and conduct all campus nominations and elections. These in- 
clude general elections in the spring, special elections and all student 
body referendas. The election dates and voting procedures are 
selected by the Board. All campaigning actions and violations are 
dealt with by the Board. 

FINANCE COMMITTEE: The function of the Finance Com- 
mittee is primarily that of allocating funds to student organizations, 
investigating each organization's expenditures, and making recom- 
mendations to the Legislature regarding any discrepancies. Members 
of this committee are selected by the SGA Treasurer. 

FRESHMAN ORIENTATION BOARD: FOB is an organi- 
zational body designed to acquaint the freshman and the transfer 
student with various aspects of life on the Maryland campus. 
This Board provides the new student with a better understanding of 
the opportunities available at the University. The Fall Sponsor 
program, an integral part of orientation, has an upperclassman assist 
in answering all the questions of a new student. Lectures, dances, 
tours, and a pep rally highlight Fall Orientation Week. 

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. 

45 



PACE: People Active in Community Effort is the organization 
at the University that serves as coordinator for short term and 
sustained volunteer community action projects. Such services as 
recruitment, orientation programs, leadership training programs, 
educational materials, supplies, community contacts and resources 
are provided through the PACE office. Working with such community 
action programs as Volunteers for Mental Health, Newman Offers 
Witness, Hillel, Upward Bound, and Denton-Cambridge Lincoln 
Heights projects offers PACE members an excellent opportunity to 
become involved in working directly with the solution of civic, 
economic, educational, political, and social problems of the present. 
Membership is open to all interested students. 

PEP COMMITTEE: The action group on campus is the SGA 
Pep Committee. The main purpose of the Pep Committee is to 
promote school spirit and spectator interest in athletic events. To 
achieve this goal, the Pep Committee maintains a colorful card 
section at football games and reserves a rooting section in Cole 
Field House during the basketball season for interested card section 
members. 

The Committee makes posters and banners for athletic events 
on campus and maintains the University's motorized mascot, a nine- 
teen foot terrapin called Testudo II. In addition to promoting 
athletics, the Pep Committee assists the Homecoming, Away Weekend, 
and Spring Weekend Committees in promoting these student events. 
The Pep Committee is open to all interested students, especially those 
aiming toward becoming cheerleaders or those interested in what 
is happening on campus. 

Judicial Branch 

The basic objective of discipline in the University should be to 
provide assistance to the non-comforming individual in his search 
for an adequate adjustment to campus and later life. It should 
cause him to become more self-analytical and to relate the resultant 
self knowledge to the goals, objectives, and courses of action he 
may have set for himself. 

46 



To this end, the judiciary program at the University of Maryland 
stresses adjustment and prevention of unacceptable student conduct 
as primary considerations in student discipline. Underlying the 
entire program is a deep regard for the individual and every effort 
is made to resolve each disciplinary problem in a constructive and 
educational manner, by retaining the offender within the University 
community. 

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. All board decisions are 
usually reviewed and approved without alteration by the Judiciary 
Office. 

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 BOARD has responsibility for cases in- 
volving violations of campus traffic rules and regulations that are 
referred to it by the Judiciary Office. The nine justices must each 
have a minimum 2.5 cumulative average, and may not hold any SGA 

47 



elected post during his tenure on the bench. Any member of the 
student body may apply for a position. 




Students stand trial in Student Traffic Board for failure to pay tickets given to 
them by our beloved Meter Maid. 



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. Members must have a 2.6 or above 
cumulative average and one semester's experience on a residence 
Judicial Board. The exception shall be the commuter representative. 

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 

48 



male students. It also serves as a board of appeals for men's 
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. 

PAN HELLENIC 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. 

Residence Hall Association 

The Residence Hall Association, composed of representatives 
from each of the five geographical areas on campus, works to improve 
living conditions for residents of campus dormitories. Working 
closely with the faculty, administration, and other branches of the 
Student Government Association, Residence Hall Association tackles 
such problems as improving the food service in the dining halls, 
simplifying the room inspection procedures, improving fire safety, 
and obtaining weekend parking privileges for resident freshmen and 
sophomores. During Spring Weekend, Residence Hall Association 
sponsors the annual "Presents." Last semester, under the auspices of 
Residence Hall Council, Inter-Fraternity Council, and University 
Commuters' Association combined, students enjoyed the entertain- 
ment of Bob Hope and The Serendipity Singers. 

Members of the Association are a closely-knit group who enjoy 
various activities together, such as parties, swimming, and the 
theatre. Although the voting representatives of Residence Hall 
Association are usually elected officers of the Areas, several com- 
mittee chairmanships are open to any qualified resident student.

ate hot dogs sold to them by Greeks, rather than eating "mystery meat."

University Commuters' Association 

The University Commuters' Association offers the commuter 
many opportunities to become involved in campus life, and provides 
unity to the large group of students who commute from nearby 
apartments and homes. 

The Commuters' Den and the UCA Office are located in the 
basement of the Student Union. The Den serves as a convenient 
place for commuters to eat, chat with friends, or just relax between 
classes, away from the bustle of a large campus. 

The UCA sponsors many social and cultural events throughout 
the year. At the annual Playboy Ball, students, especially males, 
enjoy the attention of authentically attired, adorable "bunnies."

Other activities include casual dances, Friday afternoon Coke Dates, 
and the annual Homecoming float-building party. The Banquet for 
installation of officers is another event of the spring semester. Last 
year UCA co-sponsored the annual "Presents" which brought Bob 
Hope to the campus for Spring Weekend. Another important function 
of UCA is the representation of the commuters in campus govern- 
ment. Thus, commuters elect three representatives to SGA Legis- 
lature, and the UCA President sits on the SGA Cabinet. 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. 

Associated Women Students 

The Associated Women Students (AWS) was established to 
unify all women students and coordinate the activities of women who 
commute and who live in dorms and sorority houses. It functions 
to promote self-government in women's residence halls and sorority 
houses. The AWS fosters academic excellence and community service 
programs, as well as sponsoring special projects, such as Big Sister 
and Commuter Affiliation Programs, a State Day Convention, a 
Head Residents Tea, a Christmas Choral Program, the Glamour Best- 
Dressed Coed Contest, a Sex Symposium, the Bridal Fair, and a May 
Day Art Show. 

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

54 



In the early Spring, AWS sponsors its newest event, the Sex 
Symposium. The symposium is a three-day series of informative 
lectures, discussions, films dealing with the contemporary issues 
involving sex and morality. Well-known speakers are invited to 
convey their various views on controversial topics. 

AWS also presents the Bridal Fair in the spring, in conjunction 
with Bride and Home Magazine. Engaged coeds and bridal hope- 
fuls have the opportunity to view displays of household and personal 
items, such as trousseau fashions, engagement and wedding rings, 
china, crystal, silver, appliances, and everything else newlyweds 
could need. Two fashion shows highlight the fair, featuring clothing 
for the mother of the bride, attendants, and that all-important gown 
and trousseau for the bride herself. All participating companies 
contribute numerous door prizes, raffle prizes, and free samples for 
the women students. 



Anyone can hope at the AWS Bridal Fair.

Aside from the various programs that AWS initiates, this organi- 
zation is concerned with forming and modifying women's regulations. 
During the past years, AWS has liberalized and eliminated many of 
the rules for women students, especially those dealing with curfews. 
One of the policies started last year was the self-imposed curfew 
system for women twenty-one years old or a senior, and this year, 
for juniors also. 

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 spring, the 
officers appoint the chairman of the individual committees. These 
students make up the AWS Executive Council — the actual represent- 
ative government of AWS. A representative from Presidents' 
Council, a council of all the presidents of residence halls, and a 
representative from Panhel are also members of the AWS Executive 
Council. 

Men's League 

Representing the male students at the University, the Men's 
League promotes the educational, cultural, social, and athletic wel- 
fare of all undergraduate men. In 1967, the Men's League established 
a first appelate court, which takes appeals from IFC and has original 
jurisdiction over men. Also, in 1967, the Men's League established a 
legislative branch to serve as its major policy making body. The 
Men's League also sponsors an intramural program and the Senior 
Awards Banquet. 

Panhellenic Council 

The Panhellenic Council operates as the governing body for the 
entire sorority system. The Council is composed of two delegates 
from each sorority who meet twice monthly to discuss mutual 
problems concerning sorority standards, scholarship, campus activi- 
ties, and inter-sorority functions. Maryland also has a Junior Pan- 
hellenic Council which serves to coordinate the activities of the 
pledge classes and also train future Panhellenic officers and members. 

56 



Sorority Rush is a highly organized function and is unified for 
all eighteen sororities on campus. Panhel organizes and makes the 
rules for sorority formal and informal rush. Formal rush begins in 
the fall during registration week with the first of the four parties 
being the Open House. Each rushee must attend all eighteen 
sorority Open Houses; this is her very brief introduction to sorority 
life. She then picks up her bids for the set of eight at the Student 
Union at times designated; at this party each rushee will be shown 
around the entire house and here she will become more familiar with 
the girls. After these parties, she picks up her bids for the set of 
four which are built around themes with entertainment, costumes, 
and refreshments. Following the set of four parties she must limit 
herself to two houses for the preference teas. These are the last 
parties which end with the picking up of bids and "pledging in." 
Every party will bring new and more permanent friendships. Each 
house can only take twenty-eight girls; however, junior transfer 
students are not counted in the quota. 

Inter-Fraternity Council 

IFC, the coordinating body of the fraternity system, consists 
of one delegate and the president from each fraternity. The function 
of the Council is to perpetuate and promote the fraternity system and 
coordinate the activities of the twenty-four houses. Each year the 
system is re-evaluated to adapt it to the needs of the incoming students 
and to provide continued service to the University community. 

The policies for the fraternity rush are formed by the IFC. 
Stag and dated parties comprise much of 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. Both formal and informal rush are held in the fall 
and spring. 

Every year the IFC has a formal affair known as the IFC Ball. 
This past year it was held at Indian Springs Country Club and the 
entertainment was provided by the Drifters. In addition, IFC 
sponsors such events as Greek Week, during which all the fraternities

orphans' carnival. 



and sororities participate in an Orphans Carnival, bicycle races, 
chariot races, and several other activities. The IFC is also concerned 
with the welfare of the community and holds such activities as the 
Blood Drive, College Casino, and various roadblocks for the purpose 
of raising money for charity.

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 new Maryland students who will be quick to take advan- 
tage of the diversified program of activities, assimilation into campus 
life will be easy. 

In the fall semester, all organizations make a campus-wide 
search for enthusiastic newcomers. Publications, professional groups, 
special interest clubs, and student government committees extend a 
hearty welcome to all freshman and transfer students seeking 
activities. Activities must be approached from the beginning of 
the college career and should be geared to the student's own partic- 
ular interests. 

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 proven 
"that the students who find college the most difficult are not those 
with too many activities, but those with too much inactivity."

If You Like Politics . . . 

Political Parties on Campus 

There are two University political parties: Free State and Old 
Line. Each party holds conventions to nominate and support 
candidates for Student Government Association, Associated Women 
Students, Men's League, and class offices. Dormitories, Greek 
houses, and commuters have voting representation in each party. 

The two parties initiate and carry out policy changes and new 
activities on campus. Meetings, which are announced in the Diamond- 
back, are open to all those who are interested. Students may join the 
various committees of the parties merely by signing up at meetings. 
Further information may be acquired from the SGA office, Rm. 
114 of the Student Union. 

National Political Parties on Campus 

The Young Republicans and Young Democrats are students and 
young adults interested in political activity and support of their 
national parties. They hold weekly meetings and have workshops, 
guest speakers such a Governor Agnew, and social activities. They 
also work for local precincts, voter registration drives, and campaign 
for candidates. Formal membership may be obtained by paying a 
$2.00 fee. During Freshman Orientation Week, the Young Re- 
publicans and Young Democrats have a table in the Student Union 
lobby for those interested in membership. All meetings are open 
and are usually announced in the Diamondback. 

Students for a Democratic Society 

The Students for Democratic Society (SDS) is a radical 
political organization working for fundamental social change. The 
group works for democracy and student rights on the University 
campus. It also strives to put an end to the draft, the war in Vietnam, 
and the University's involvement with the war effort. To this end, 
the SDS sponsors sit-ins and student protests on campus, and in 
1967 it supported the Students' march on the Pentagon. 

61 



For those interested in joining, a meeting is held every Wednes- 
day night in the Student Union which is open to all. For additional 
information, a table is in the Student Union lobby every other week.

Students for Responsible Citizenship 

Students for Responsible Citizenship is an informal, non- 
partisan, but anti-extremist association representing the political 
middle. The group's main objective is to try to draw realistic 
appraisals of current social and political problems and to encourage 
action through the system rather than outside it. Current member- 
ship is composed of sociology, psychology, political science, and 
economics majors who work individually writing letters to editors 
and debating with other organizations. 

62 



For the Creative . . . 

Diamondback 

Consistently rated one of the nation's best college daily news- 
papers, the Diamondback covers all facets of University life as well 
as significant national and international events. Working with 
senior editors trained at some of the most renowned commercial 
papers in the country, an ever expanding staff works seven days a 
week to provide 17,000 — 20,000 copies of each edition. The 
$125,000 yearly enterprise is edited and managed around the clock 
entirely by students, many of whom started working without prior 
experience and climbed to major leadership roles. 

Positions for reporters, copy editors, photographers, cartoonists, 
advertising salesmen and general office assistants are almost always 
open, seldom requiring more than three or four hours per week. 
More responsible positions, however, require up to 40 or more hours, 
promising increasing satisfaction and compensation. 

Like other truly professional news media, the Diamondback 
not only strives to bring complete and up-to-date news to University 
students, but also analysis and comment in an ever changing world. 
Respected, requested and responsible, both on campus and off, the 
Diamondback offers all students the opportunity to become involved 
in what's happening on campus while broadening your educational 
perspective. 

Terrapin 

From year to year, the Terrapin formulates a representative 
cross-section of the University, featuring the student in academic, 
athletic, and social contexts. Staff members endeavor to capture 
the Maryland scene through their photographic, literary, and artistic 
skills. 

The Terrapin includes sections covering Seniors, Colleges, 
Administrators, Dorms, Greeks, Commuters, Athletics, and Organi- 
zations. Production of these sections depends heavily upon coordi- 

63 



nation and communications between photography, layout, copy, art, 
and business staffs. The Terrapin is always on the lookout for "new 
talent," but previous yearbook experience is not required. In- 
terested students may apply for the 1969 Terrapin in Rm. 207 of the 
Journalism Building. 

Argus 

Argus serves as the University's feature magazine, published 
twice a semester, it contains articles on student life, fashion, sports, 
traditions, and human interest stories. Outside of the three key 
editorial positions filled in the spring, all other Argus staff positions, 
such as copy readers, cartoonists, readers, and photographers are 
open to anyone in the fall. Applications are available in Rm. 103 
of the Student Union. 

Calvert Review 

The Calvert Review is a literary publication featuring prose, 
poetry, literary criticism and student art works. The Calvert Review 
is published twice a year. Students who are interested in either sub- 
mitting original work or working on the staff should go to the 
Calvert Review office in Taliaferro Hall. 

The Greek 

The Greek is the fraternity and sorority newspaper which is 
published twelve to sixteen times a year. It contains information 
about the Greek system, social and philanthropic news, activities of 
IFC and Panhel, and contributions of outstanding Greeks. 

M-Book 

M-Book serves as the handbook for all new University students 
by presenting essential information about all phases of University 
life, including activities, organizations, services, and happenings. 
Applications, available to all students, are accepted in the fall semester 
with actual work beginning in the Spring semester. Application 
announcements are made in the Diamondback. 

64 



Course Guide 

The Course Guide is published in the spring semester as an 
aid to students in evaluating courses and teachers, obtained from 
randomly selected students who have actually taken the courses. 
This publication contains facts about the courses (obtained from both 
students and faculty members) and relevant student opinions. The 
aim is to help students select their courses and instructors. Interested 
students may join the staff as interviewers, typists, or simply as 
information gatherers. Central headquarters are located in the 
Chapel. 

WMUC 

WMUC, the campus radio station, broadcasts a variety of news, 
information, and music programs to campus residents twenty-four 
hours a day. Its student staff, numbering over sixty, gains valuable 
experience in broadcasting techniques through the use of WMUC's 
three professionally equipped studios. Campus news and events are 
emphasized and often broadcasted live from remote locations on 
campus. Current popular music is the primary feature with jazz, 
broadway, folk, and progressive rock specials once each week. The 
first week each semester WMUC conducts auditions for new staff 
members. Students interested in news, sports, announcing, sales, 
engineering, or office work should come to WMUC's studios in 
building FF for more information. Campus residents will find 
WMUC at 650 khz on their AM radios.

For the Musically Inclined . . . 

Maryland Bands 

The Maryland Band system offers students many opportunities 
for fellowship, educational experience, and service to the University. 
Membership into the Band program, which consists of the Marching 
Band and three concert performing Bands, is determined by the 
Director after individual auditions early in the year. All students 
of the University are eligible. 

The Bands perform at football and basketball games and at 
concerts. The Symphony Band goes on tour. The Marching Band 
adds color and spirit to all of the University's home football games 
by exhibiting their intricate marching routines during half-time. 
Each year it performs at two away games. 

Women's Glee Club and Men's Glee Club 

The Glee Clubs at the University of Maryland are divided into 
Men's and Women's, but they often combine their energy and talent 
in joint performances. Their exceptional voices are heard at the 
President's Convocation and at graduation. The Glee Clubs also 
entertain at local high schools, and they performed last summer at 
Expo '67 in Canada. 

Chapel Choir 

Founded in 1951, Chapel Choir, under the direction of Fague 
Springmann, performs the oratorios and other large works of the 
great masters. It gives numerous religious programs during the 
year, on campus and in the community. These include Mendelssohn's 
Elijah at Thanksgiving and Handel's Messiah at Christmas. In the 
past it has sung at three Maryland gubernatorial inaugurations, and 
has been commended by the Senate of Maryland. Chapel Choir 
members receive one music credit and meet during regular class 
periods. Tryouts for freshmen and upperclassmen alike are held 
in the beginning of the year. 

66 



Orchestra 

Students from freshmen to senior are invited to try out for the 
University's orchestral group. The Orchestra gives numerous 
concerts on the campus throughout the year and may volunteer to 
perform in operas. With a repertoire ranging from light to classical 
music, last year the Orchestra presented a Pops Concert. Members 
meet twice a week for practice and receive one music credit. 

Madrigal Singers 

Outstanding singers comprise this group which recreates music 
of the Renaissance. The Madrigal Singers display their talents in 
the music of this period both on and off campus. In recent years, 
the group has toured the Mediterranean countries, performed on 
television, and appeared in a White House Christmas program before 
the President and then Chancellor Erhart of West Germany. All 
those interested may audition for the group.

If You Like to Perform . . . 

Flying Follies 

Flying Follies is a group of student musical and variety enter- 
tainers who present an annual show at the University every Spring. 
Proceeds enable them to perform regularly at the charitable ventures 
of civic organizations and at army bases and hospitals in the area. 

Membership in the Follies is based on auditions held in the 
fall and spring for any student interested in performing or being 
a member of the technical staff. Those selected may then audition 
for spots in the spring production on campus. This show is written, 
produced, directed and performed by the students. Numbers from 
it, as well as individually composed acts comprise the shows given 
on the road. During 1968, the Flying Follies production, entitled 
"Entre-Nous," consisted of skits based on campus activities, plus 
musical numbers. Mr. Alfred Danegger advises the troupe. 

Drama Wing 

To present "plays for better living" is the purpose of Drama 
Wing. This small group of students performs at PTA meetings in 
the community. Their productions re-enact family problems and are 
shown for any civic organization interested in the behavioral 
problems of children. Membership in this traveling dramatic 
society is based on approval by the Group's director, Mr. Starcher, 
after an individual reading by a prospective candidate. 

Modern Dance Club 

The Modern Dance Club consists of beginning, intermediate, 
and advance dance groups, each working independently. It provides 
students with an opportunity to improve their skills and to appear 
in student-choreographed dance demonstrations. Students may join 
the beginners' group which meets once a week to practice basic dance

University Theatre. This organization presents four major pro- 
ductions during the school year as well as an opera in the spring and 
a children's production each semester. The musical of the past 
year w T as How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. A 

69 



new view of Shakespeare was provided in the December presentation,

and Rhinoceros. The opera, which also appeared in the spring, was 
Barber of Seville. Open auditions are held for all University Theatre 
presentations. All UT productions are performed in the Tawes 
Auditorium in the Fine Arts Building. 

Membership is acquired through work on the shows. During an 
apprenticeship period, students under the guidance of an advisor 
earn credits by participating in the various crews connected with a 
show. Work on three major productions or two major productions 
and a minor production is required. A 2.0 cumulative average is 
mandatory. Recognition keys are presented to outstanding members 
and it is also possible to obtain membership in the National Collegiate 
Players, a drama honorary. 

Experimental Theatre

experimentation by interested students. In May, An Evening of 
One Act Plays enabled students to show their work on projects that 
appealed to theatrical creativity. Students gain additional experience 
in all phases of the theatre through work on Experimental Theatre 
productions. In the past, Experimental Theatre has produced shows 
such as Apollo at Belloc, which was shown at the Yale Drama Festival. 

Laboratory Theatre 

Students in the acting and directing classes work together to 
improve their skill in their craft. They create scenes which help 
them to concentrate on specific aspects of theatre during their 
learning process. They welcome anyone interested in working with 
them.

If You'd Like to Serve . . . 

Campus Chest 

The Campus Chest is an organization comprised of represent- 
atives of many University groups. These groups collect money 
through numerous activities and contribute it to the Campus Chest 
who in turn disperses these funds to various charitable causes. 

Gamma Sigma Sigma 

Gamma Sigma Sigma is a national service sorority, assembled 
in the spirit of service to humanity. The sisters of Gamma Sigma 
Sigma serve the community as ushers at cultural events, entertainers 
at Andrews Air Base, and aides at children's hospitals and orphanages. 
In coordination with this year's National Project and Mental Health, 
members have tested and taught mentally retarded children. 

To pledge Gamma Sigma Sigma, a woman student must be at 
least a second semester Freshman with a 2.2 average. Most important, 
she must be willing to dedicate a minimum of 18 hours of service 
every semester. 

Alpha Phi Omega 

Alpha Phi Omega is the National Service Fraternity dedicated 
to the principles of leadership, friendship, and service. There are 
over 500 chapters of APO at colleges and universities throughout 
the world, and the Epsilon Mu chapter at the University of Maryland 
is one of the most active. Its projects in terms of service include: 
an escort service for girls walking across campus; ushering at all 
major cultural events; coke sales and coat checks at all major campus 
dances; building of the Homecoming Queen's float; taking mentally 
retarded children to a football game; collecting money at roadblocks 
for charity; a Santa service for orphans around Christmas time; a 
snowman contest better known as "APO in the Snow"; sponsoring 
of Peace Corp and Vista on campus; sponsoring of a Foster Child. 

71 



Our largest projects of the year include a used bookstore at the 
beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters. The money raised in 
the bookstore is used to finance the other projects. In the Spring 
semester APO sponsors the famous Ugly Man on Campus-Miss 
Campus Chest Queen contest. In the Spring '68 contest over 
$30,000 was raised for charity in a two week period. 

The brothers of APO realize that social events are important, 
and therefore they have quite a few social activities. These activities 
include frequent parties, desserts and mixers with sororities, and in 
the Spring the APO Weekend, which includes a formal, picnic, and 
banquet. 

APO has its rush during two weeks early in the semester for 
those interested in pledging. They can be contacted at any time at 
454-3029 or in the basement of Calvert E Dormitory.

For Those in Maryland ROTC . . . 

Air Force Reserve Officers' Training Corps 

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. 
They come in contact with cadets from all over the United States. 

Men who enter the four-year program have the opportunity of 
aiding themselves financially. They may enter into competition for 
a full financial assistance grant. Qualified cadets from either the 
two-year or four-year program may take the Flight Instruction 
Program which enables them to 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, an honorary professional organization 
of AFROTC cadets, promotes the interests and ideals of the United 
States Air Force. Its members receive the opportunity to develop 
their leadership qualities. They are prepared for the positions of 
command which they will assume in the Air Force. Each semester, 
second semester freshmen through seniors rush the society and are 
welcomed into a six week pledge program. The members of Arnold 
Air Society, in addition to University and civic activities, sponsor 
the ROTC Military Ball and the Angel Flight-Arnold Air Force foot- 
ball game. 

74 



Maryland Honor Guard 

A new addition to the University's community of military 
organizations is the Maryland Honor Guard. A special organization 
of ROTC, the Guard aims to build officers for the Air Force, to 
publicize ROTC, and to train men for drill competition. Pledges 
are accepted each semester and during an eight-week program, learn 
the mannerisms of the Air Force. Both pledges and actives drill 
each week, practicing trick drills or other maneuvers. At the end 
of a pledgeship, the new members are initiated and active ribbons 
and cords are received at a banquet held at a near-by Air Force base. 

The Maryland Honor Guard sponsors an eight-man drill team 
which represents the University at national drill meets such as those 
held during the Cherry Blossom and Dogwood Festivals. This team 
competes in the trick division using sabres and rifles. This past year, 
the Guard organized the Maryland Invitational Drill Meet; teams 
from such distant points as California and Puerto Rico entered the 
competition. 

Angel Flight 

Sponsored by Arnold Air Society and the United States Air 
Force, the women of Angel Flight serve as official hostesses for the 
University and for the Corps of Cadets. They work closely with the 
men of the Arnold Air Society, serving as secretaries for cadets and 
officers. Their community, university, charity, and social projects 
cover a wide scope. All interested women who are second semester 
freshmen through first semester juniors may go through Angel Flight 
rush, which is held at the beginning of each semester. Those selected 
from this group then complete their pledgeship and become active 
members.

To Be a Greek 



Greek organizations have long been a part of University of 
Maryland's campus life through their dedication to building re- 
sponsible students academically, socially, and culturally. Integrated 
with the University program, sororities and fraternities offer to men 
and women a different aspect of social living and communication 
through the typical "house" situation. Many students who have 
lived in both dormitories and "houses" have found that the Greek 
system has superior living accommodations, better food, and in 
general a more congenial living atmosphere. 

Social functions represent one of the biggest contributions Greek 
organizations make to campus life. Each individual fraternity and 
sorority holds dances, desserts, parties, formals, and open houses 
throughout the year, providing the student with virtually every type 
of social situation. 

However, more important than social life is academic success, 
and in this area Greeks have consistently had higher academic aver- 
ages than the all University average. Maryland fraternities require a 
2.0 overall average for initiation while sororities demand a 2.2 or 
more. Greek upperclassmen often hold study halls and help sessions 
for their pledges in order to insure the best possible grades. At 
the end of each semester, a cup is presented to the sorority and 
fraternity with the highest academic average. 




Philanthropic projects also play an important part in Greek 
life. Alpha Omicron Pi and Tau Epsilon Phi sponsor two campus- 
wide blood drives to aid the Red Cross. Sigma Alpha Mu this past 
year, in accordance with their national project, sponsored "Bounce for 
Beats," where the fraternity bounced a basketball for thirty straight 
hours, collecting hundreds of dollars for the Heart Fund. Every house 
contributes to Campus Chest, especially during the weeks of the 
Ugly Man on Campus and Miss Campus Chest Queen contests. To 
collect money, fraternities and sororities hold roadblocks, bake sales, 
car washes, and raffles, with all proceeds going to charity. This 
past year, Sigma Delta Tau retired the Ugly Man on Campus trophy, 
their sum total collected representing one-sixth of the total amount 
collected by all the organizations participating in the contest. Alpha 
Gamma Rho won the Miss Campus Chest Queen drive. In addition, 
many houses also sponsor orphans' parties and work with mentally 
retarded children in the area. Alpha Xi Delta is outstanding for its 
community philanthropic contributions. 

Athletics are an important part of the Greek system at Maryland. 
Each fraternity house enters in an array of sports contests ranging 
from football, basketball, and softball to horseshoes, bowling, and 
ping-pong. Points are awarded for victories in all competitions and 
are compiled each year to determine the winner of the highly coveted 
All-Sports Trophy. 

The Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC) promotes closer unity and 
cooperation among the fraternities. This is done through regularly 
scheduled meetings at which each house has equal voice and rep- 
resentation. The IFC also sponsors many activities which involve 
the Greeks but are also for the enjoyment of all Maryland Students. 
IFC "Presents" has in the past brought well known artists to the 
campus such as Sammy Davis Jr., Harry Belafonte, and Bob Hope.

fraternity man has never been so popular! 



77 



Phi Kappa Tau gives sorority women and fraternity men a chance 
to display their vocal talents with their annual Barbershop Quartet 
competition. During the same evening, recognition is given to out- 
standing male and female Greeks as they are "tapped" into Kalegethos 
and Diamond, the Greek honoraries. Also on a musical note is 




Delta Delta Delta's annual fraternity-sorority sing which provides 
an opportunity for the Greek house to compete for trophies in the 
area of choral singing. The fall semester ends with the IFC Ball 
which last year brought the Drifters along with Lawrence and the 
Arabians to the Maryland campus; Greek men and women are 
invited to attend this formal event. The All-Sports Trophy is 
awarded at this time. 

The Panhellenic Council is the sorority counterpart of the IFC 
and is comprised of all eighteen sorority houses on campus. One 
of the main functions of Panhel is, in conjunction with the faculty 
and administration, the making of rules concerning sorority formal 
and informal rush, sorority membership, pledging, and initiation. 
It also co-sponsors the Fall and Spring Greek Weeks with the IFC. 

During Fall Greek Week, the Greeks have workshop programs 
and a re-dedication of the University Chapel. This week is climaxed 
by Kappa Kappa Gamma's Pledge Skit Night and by Pledge Formal. 
Also taking place during the Fall is Derby Day sponsored by Sigma 
Chi; trophies are given out for Spirit, House Decorations, the Derby 
Day Queen, and Over-All Awards. 

The Spring Greek Week is of a less serious note and fraternities 
and sororities engage in rather humorous activities such as phone 
booth stuffing, pie eating contests, bike races, chariot races, greased 
pole climbing and Sorority Olympics, sponsored by Lambda Chi 
Alpha. 

In short, Greeks are active in all phases of University life. The 
Panhellenic Council and the IFC publishes a handbook which each 
freshman receives to help answer further questions about sorority 
and fraternity systems at Maryland. The fraternities and sororities 
also publish their own newspaper, The Greek, which highlights 
major Greek and campus events. During the fall, new students 
should watch for information about sorority and fraternity open 
houses which they are invited to attend.

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 aided 
in deciding 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,

Maryland Athletics 



Football 

Although the football team's record was only 0-9 this past 
season, football coach, Bob Ward is confident that after a year's 
experience with the team, there will be a marked improvement this 
season. Alan Pastrana, who last year did not play because of an 
injury, will be back this season playing in the quarterback position. 
In the 1966 season, Pastrana broke several Atlantic Coast Conference 
passing records, and Coach Ward is hoping for a repeat performance. 
Maryland fans, along with the entire squad of players are looking 
forward to improving last year's record. 

Wrestling 

Maryland has had a traditionally strong wrestling team and won 
the ACC championship last year. The team's record was 7-2-1, and 
much of the credit must go to their fine coach, Sully Krouse. At 
the end of the season the team finished ninth in the National Tourna- 
ment held at Penn State. 

Soccer 

Maryland's soccer team, under the direction of Coach Doyle 
Royal, finished the season with an impressive 11-1-1 record. This 
allowed the team to compete in the National Championship ; however, 
they lost to the co-champion, Michigan State. The games were 
highlighted this year by co-captains Giancarlo Brandoni and Mike 
Rioux. Brandoni and goalie Mario Selecovich received Ail-American 
honors for their outstanding performances. Ray Buckley and Alvaro 
Bittencourt also added great talent to this year's squad. Bittencourt 
and high-scorer Larry Richs will be back next year to help maintain 
Maryland's fine soccer record.

Cross Country and Track 

The Maryland track team under the able direction of Maryland's 
most successful coach Jim Kehoe, is looking forward to another 
very successful season. Everyone's attention will be focused on 
Frank Costello, Ail-American high jumper, who has cleared 7*1 %". 
He will be returning in the fall to the team after a recent injury. 
John Baker, a dynamic sophomore, races through the mile run in 
4:07.0. The coach is looking forward to recapturing the IC4A title 
and the ACC Conference Championship.

Lacrosse 

Last year Maryland, along with Navy and Johns Hopkins, shared 
the National Lacrosse Championship title. This past year Maryland 
defeated Navy 5-3 which was decisive in determining this year's 
championship. Fabulous defensive play by Norman Vanderschuyt 
and aggressive offense by Steve La Vaute will assure Maryland this 
year of another successful season. Doug Carter, midfielder, who 
recently shifted to the attack position, will help the team tremendously. 
Coach John Howard is hoping for another National Championship 
for Maryland. 

Swimming 

Coach Bill Campbell, who started the swim team at Maryland 
will be coaching the team again this year. This year's team will 
be led by All-American free-styler Dave Heim and many talented 
sophomores and juniors. In the category of diving, Maryland will 
be represented by All-American prospect Ron Hoffman. Mike Golub, 
a 50-yard sprint man, will try to fill the graduation loss of Maryland's 
finest swimmer, Philip Denkevitz. In the past few years Maryland 
has always been a contender for the ACC Championship and this 
year will be no exception. 

Baseball 

The Maryland Baseball Team has a good chance to win the 
ACC Championship this year due to a fine pitching staff. Mike 
Hesson, Tom Bradley, George Manz, Philip Corddry and Mark 
Harris form a pitching staff unequaled in the ACC. The infield 
consists of Juniors George Fling at first base, and Bob Stroppe at 
third base, while the outfield consists of sophomores Gene Hiser, Joe 
Schlicht, and Mike Martz. Freshmen are eligible this year; Maryland 
has two excellent prospects in outfielder Jim Norris and shortstop 
Mike Baer, either of whom may break into the starting line-up this 
coming season. Maryland's coach is Elton "Jack" Jackson, currently 
in his eighth season. He guided the team to a 12-6 record in 1967. 

92 



Basketball 

Coach Frank Fellows in his first year as varsity coach guided 
his team to a somewhat disappointing 7-14 season. Plagued by poor 
shooting and lack of height, Maryland had many victories taken 
from them in the closing minutes of the game. Some outstanding 
individual performances were by Pete Johnson, Bill Jones, Tom 
Milroy, Will Hetzel, and Rich Drescher. This year's team should 
improve upon last year's record with the addition of several players

Tennis 

Led by transfer students Fulton Liss, Ray Buck-Lew, Dave 
Bennett and Bill Speckman, the Terp netmen will be out to dislodge 
the North Carolina Tar Heels from the conference championship. 
Coach Doyle Royle is very pleased with the return of letterman John 
Schafer, and Dave Warchen. Freshman Nick Marenko and Andy 
Cohen will be expected to add to an already strong team if Maryland 
is to win the championship this year. This year the Terps will 
host the Cherry Blossom Tournament and the Atlantic Coast Tourna- 
ment giving them the advantage of the home court. 

Golf 

The Maryland Golf Team, one of the best teams on the Eastern 
coast, was led by sophomores Brian Williams and Billy Ziobsos, and 
freshman Mike Micka. The adept coach of the team, Barry 
Rodenhauer looks forward to a great year and even better future 
with the young talent he now has. 

Color Guard 

The Color Guard is the University of Maryland's tribute to the 
Atlantic Coast Conference. Eight spirited and high-stepping girls, 
complemented by four alternates, carry the Maryland flag as well as 
those of ACC rivals: Clemson, Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina 
State, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wake Forest. These girls can 
be seen primarily at the football games, appearing in all home games 
and one away game. Tryouts for positions on the Color Guard are 
held in the spring. 

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 
preceding the last home football game. Cheerleading is open to 
both men and women students.

Intramurals 



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

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, the open, and the dorm leagues. 

M-Club 

The M-Club is a group of students interested in promoting the 
Athletic Program of the University of Maryland. Each year the 
M-Club honors the outstanding athletes of the season and sponsors 
the Outstanding Intramural Athlete of the Year. The M-Club also 
sponsors several athletic scholarships.

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 
commuters. Although organized for the purpose of sports, the WRA 
provides an opportunity for leadership through committee chairman- 
ships for companionship and group participation. 

The primary concern of the Women's Recreational Association 
is the promotion of women's athletics. The WRA sponsors official 
teams in hockey, basketball, tennis, lacrosse, volleyball, and swim- 
ming. These teams compete in games with various colleges and 
universities such as American University, George Washington, Trinity 
Marymount, and Gallandet. 

The WRA also plays an important part in organizing the in- 
tramural sports among the dorms, the sororities, and the Daydodgers 
(commuters). Students who love sports but have little spare time 
should participate in the intramural program. Intramural activities 
include a basketball tournament, a swimming marathon, a swimming 
meet, a pingpong tournament, a volleyball tournament, and a bad- 
minton tournament. The winners of these tournaments are awarded 
trophies at the WRA Spring Banquet. 

Interest groups sponsored by WRA provide instruction in 
tennis, ice skating, self-defense, and horseback riding. Several co- 
educational clubs are also affiliated with WRA, including Aqualiners, 
Modern Dance, and Fencing. In addition, WRA sponsors other 
events such as the Freshman Picinc held during Freshman Orientation 
Week, which attempts to interest the freshman women in the WRA 
program: the Hockey, Tennis and Golf Sports Day held in the fall; 
and the Spring Banquet during which trophies are given to the 
intramural winners and new members are inducted to Sigma Tau 
Epsilon, the WRA honorary. 

The WRA office is located in Preinkert Fieldhouse. Interested 
women students should apply there to participate in WRA activities.
