School of Medicine
The University of Maryland Medical Technology program is
four years in length, leading to a Bachelor of Science degree.
The first three years are devoted to basic studies at the Col-
lege Park campus. The last year is spent in clinical studies at
University Hospital on the Baltimore City campus of the
University of Maryland.
This program is administered by the School of Medicine,
although the students have previously been registered in the
School of Nursing at College Park as a temporary administra-
tive measure. The curriculum in medical technology complies
with the requirements and recommendations of the Board of
Schools of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists
(and the American Medical Association Council on Medical
Education). Graduates of the program will be eligible to take
the examination for registration given by the Board of Registry
of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.
Physical Therapy is a health profession concerned with the
prevention, evaluation and treatment of disease processes
and injuries amendable to the effects of certain physical
agents (heat, cold, ultra-sound, light, electricity, water,
massage), exercise and performed with due consideration
for the emotional, social and economic facts related to the in-
dividual's health maintenance or recovery. Its purposes are
affected through individual treatment or group instruction
or by consultation and instruction of others concerned with
patient care. Physical Therapy is administered only when the
patient is referred by a physician.
The educational program is accredited by the Council on
Medical Education of the American Medical Association In
collaboration with the American Physical Therapy Association.
For detailed information refer to the Bulletin issued by the
Department of Physical Therapy. This can be obtained by

Medicine, 520R West Lombard Street, Baltimore, Maryland
The University of Maryland offers a four-year curriculum to
men and women students leading to a Bachelor of Science
degree after the completion of 139 semester hour credits (63
liberal arts and sciences, 72 professional, and four health and
physical activities). The freshman and sophomore students
are registered on the College Park or Baltimore County cam-
pus and the junior and senior students on the Baltimore City
campus. Qualified students from other accredited universities
or colleges who have successfully completed appropriate
courses may be admitted directly to the professional program
at Baltimore beginning in the Fall semester only.
School of Nursing
The School of Nursing was organized in 1889. Today, under
the leadership of Dean Marlon Murphy, the School prepares
men and women to give professional nursing care in a variety
of settings and encourages leadership development and
personal growth through a liberal education. After studying
basic sciences and liberal arts for two years at College Park,
nursing students spend the junior and senior years on the
Baltimore City campus completing the nursing major and
related subjects. The College Park office of the School of
Nursing is temporarily located in the basement of Denton Hall.
School of Pharmacy
The purposes of the School of Pharmacy are to train students
for the efficient, ethical practice of all branches of pharmacy;
to instruct students in general scientific and cultural subjects
so they can read critically, express themselves clearly, and
think logically as members of a profession and citizens of a
democracy; to guide students into productive scholarship
and research for the increase of knowledge and techniques

Dr. Lester M. Fraley, the present dean, founded the College
of Physical Education, Recreation, and Health nineteen years
ago. The College has three departments, after which it is
named. Headquarters of the College are located in Cole Activ-

THE DIVISION OF STUDENT AFFAIRS within the University
of Maryland offers programs and services for students in
many different areas: Counseling Center, Food Service,
Health Service, HELP Center, Housing, Intensive Educational
Development (lED), International Educational Services and
Foreign Student Affairs, Judiciary, Office of Intermediate
Registration (OIR), Placement and Credentials, Student Ac-
tivities, Student Affairs, Student Aid and Student Union.
The Counseling Center offers many services v\/hich are de-
signed to enable students to better understand themselves, to
resolve problems and to deal vi/ith important decisions.
Professional counselors are available to meet with students
for individual or group counseling. They assist students in
dealing with educational, vocational and personal problems.
Psychological testing provides valuable information for
counseling and is employed by the counselors when produc-
Located in the lobby is the Occupational Information Library
which displays occupational and educational materials. Here
students may also listen to the Audio Notebook, a collection
of tape-recorded "conversations" with academic department
heads on the various major fields.
The Center's Reading and Study Skills Laboratory (RSSL)
offers individualized programs designed to improve learning
skills. Students may work on increasing reading speed and
comprehension, studying effectively for examinations, taking
lecture notes, and other skills. Special workshops are offered
in improving writing skills, reducing examination panic, and
in basic English and reading skills. Students interested in
using these services should see the RSSL Receptionist on
the second floor of Shoemaker Building.
The Counseling Center is open from 9:00a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and
no appointment is necessary. The Center's receptionist .will
arrange for a brief conference with someone on the coun-
seling staff, so that any questions can be answered concern-
ing the programs offered.
All Counseling Center services are provided without charge
The purpose of the Food Service Department is to provide for
the University student the best quality food and services in a
menu pattern that will avoid monotonous routine at meal
Dietitians, Food Controllers, and Manager, all specialized in
their fields, are involved in developing a system which
guarantees a well-balanced, nutritional diet that meets ac-
The tasks are difficult and the goals are high. In order to
achieve them, the Food Service needs student help. To
facilitate this help Food Service has an "open channel"
communication policy and encourages parents and students
to use it any time they feel the urge to do so, especially
when mutual benefits might be served. Mr. Milo Knight is
the Director of Food Service.
The Health Service, located on Campus Drive across from
the Student Union, is open to all students who pay registra-
tion fees. It provides services including x-rays and some
laboratory procedures. For routine care during regular
semesters and summer school the infirmary is open during
the following hours:
Monday - Friday
8:00 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.
1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Semi-emergency or appointment care is available:
Sundays and Holidays
Twenty-four hour nursing care is available during school
sessions. During regular University sessions, call Health
Service at 454-3444.
During extended school vacation periods or between regular
sessions for emergency cases occurring on campus, call the
campus telephone operator at 454-3311.
The University of Maryland HELP CENTER is always there
if you need help. HELP CENTER volunteers can understand;
they listen; they care. If you are in need of professional as-
sistance, volunteers can refer you to the best in the com-
munity. Or perhaps you feel lonely or want to rap about
something important — just call in and someone will be ready
to rap it all out.
HELP CENTER volunteers do not claim to be perfect. They
are by no means professionals. But they are people, giving
a damn about their fellow man. Specifically, the CENTER is
made up of students and others closely involved with the
University, who have volunteered not only a few hours a week
but their genuine concern for you.
So that they can best transform that concern into action,
they have all undergone extensive training, including sensi-
tivity sessions as well as up-to-date information from profes-
sional people on abortion, birth control, drugs, homosexuality,
suicide, and legal advice. They are called upon every day to
deal with problems ranging from overdose of drugs, requests
for abortion information, draft counseling, homosexuality
and suicidal threats, to those involving loneliness, academic
and personal frustration, and family or friends.
Volunteers cannot give any easy answers, but they can try to
help by listening and by assisting you in coping with your
particular problem. Furthermore, you may want to contact
a professional specialist, and in that case they will refer you
to a counselor, doctor, lawyer, or someone else in the com-
munity, who has the expertise to deal properly with your
Located in Room 6 of the Chapel, both their tele-
phone lines and doors are open to you 24 hours
a day, seven days a week. Their telephone num-
ber is 454 - HELP (454-4357). Feel free to walk
in sometime if you'd like. They are what their
name implies - a HELP CENTER.
Various types of housing are available at the University of
Maryland to offer students comfortable and congenial places
to live. The Housing Office, located on the third floor of the
North Administration Building, administers housing services
for undergraduate residence halls.
The Housing Office also does much work in the area of edu-
cational programming. In the 39 residence halls, there are
over 170 staff members with training to help maximize student
learning through special programming.
The Off-Campus Housing Office, located in Room 208 of
Turner Laboratory, maintains files including apartments and
houses to rent, and rooms to rent in private homes. An apart-
ment may be shared for $50 to $65, and houses usually rent
from $200. Rooms rent from approximately $45 to $60, de-
pending on the accommodations offered.
It is best to use the files about three to four weeks before
desiring to take occupancy. Since housing is usually posted
for immediate occupancy, this may save you an unnecessary
Because the turn-over late is so great for housing, it has not
proven functional to print hand-out lists. A personal visit
to the Office will accomplish far more than attempting to
correspond by mail.
Intensive Educational Development Program (lED)
The lED Program provides educational and psychological
support to students, most of whom are black and many of
whom enter the University of Maryland without the customary
credentials or background.
The philosophy of the program is based on a recognition
and appreciation of individual differences among students and
the implications of these differences for student development.
Flexible admission standards are utilized with greater
emphasis placed on personal interview and recommendations.
Priority for admission will be given to residents of the state
of Maryland and graduates of Upward Bound Programs.
Approximately 80% of the students enrolled receive full fi-
nancial aid. Aid is usually a combination of Economic Op-
portunity Grant, National Student Defense Loan and College
Continuous academic advisement, counseling and tutoring are
key components of the program. Advisors meet with students
both individually and in small groups.
For further information about lED, call 454-4646 or visit the
lED office on the second floor of the North Administration
International Educational Services and
Foreign Student Affairs
The Office of International Educational Services and Foreign
Student Affairs provides a wide variety of services for foreign
students to help them make proper adjustment to the require-
ments of American University and community life and derive
the greatest possible benefit from their experiences in the
United States. Assistance is given with admissions procedures.
English language testing, housing, orientation, emergency
loans, employment, immigration regulations, home hospitality,

Administration of discipline at the University is the primary
responsibility of the Judiciary Office. Under the framework
of a judiciary program which emphasizes personal growth
and development, the aims of judicial actions are largely
educative and preventive. Its staff attempts to provide leader-
ship for the overall program by advising and directing the

In addition, the Judiciary Office lends assistance to and
promotes intercommunication among other individuals and
University offices concerned with student misconduct.
Disciplinary cases involving academic dishonesty typically
are processed by the academic dean of the college in which
the student is enrolled. Whatever the disciplinary sanctions
imposed as a result of these procedures, a record of the
action taken is maintained by the Judiciary Office.
Staff members are available to discuss any aspect of a disci-
plinary situation with the student charged, witnesses, or those
bringing the charges. The Judiciary Office, open from 8:30
A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday through Friday, is located in Room
218, North Administration Building.
Office of Intermediate Registration (OIR)
OIR is for students who are in the process of transferring
from one college in the University to another with less than a
2.00 cumulative average. The general objective of OIR is to
provide maximum opportunity for those students who have
made an error in their choice of college, to achieve the re-
quired academic grade point average for transfer to their
proposed college without undue loss of time.
Specific objectives of OIR:
(1) Affording the opportunity for individual educational and
(2) Maximizing the amount of academic responsibility as-
sumed by the student.

employers conduct interviews in the Placement Office from
late October to early April. Further details on this program
are available in the Placement Office.
A Credentials Service is provided for all seniors graduating
in the College of Education. Credentials are a permanent
record of a student's academic preparation plus recommenda-
tions from academic and professional sources. An initial
registration fee enables the Placement Office to send copies
of a student's credentials to interested educational employers,
as indicated by the student. Credentials can be brought up to
date with new information at any time (including after gradu-
ation) without charge.
Other services for students interested in education include
vacancy listings in secondary schools and in institutions of
higher learning, notifications of interest-related positions,

pletion of construction, this lounge will be returned to normal
use. Room 120 (former small auditorium) is now being used as

ATHLETICS AT THE UNIVERSITY of Maryland offers students
opportunities to participate in many varsity and intramural
sports during the year. Interested students may gain addi-
tional information about men's and women's teams from the

Department office, located in room 120 of the Armory, 454-
3124, or the Women's Physical Education Department,
located in Preinkert Fieldhouse, 454-2626.

lence in athletic events through expert instruction and ex-
tensive drill and the opportunity to compete in intercollegiate
contests. A list of the varsity sports indicated by season and
head coaches are given below:

With the hiring of Roy Lester in 1969 to head the Terp foot-
ball program, the Athletic department, headed by Athletic
director Jim Kehoe, went all out for recruitment. This spring
Lester and his staff worked with some of the best recruits the
U.S. had to offer. Last winter the freshmen's 3-2 record
should be an inspiration to the Varsity's 5-16 two-year
Six home games will be played at Byrd Stadium this fall:
Villanova, N. C. State (Band Day), Wake Forest, Syracuse
(Parents Day), V.M.I. (Homecoming), and Virginia. No charge
is levied for students. Students at Maryland just have to
present their ID cards at the gate to be admitted. The student
section is located on the side of the field opposite the press
The Terps entered the 1970 soccer season with the best
record (25-2-3) in major college soccer over the past two
years. High goals were set as the Terps hoped to compile an
overall record of 200 wins during 24 seasons. But due to
several unexpected losses, the 200th win will have to wait until
the forthcoming '71 season. At the close of the season, the
team was ranked #2 in the South and was once again invited
to play in the NCAA Championship.
The Terps are eagerly looking forward to their next season.
Three AII-ACC players, Mike Wilson, Carl Ashlock, and George
Taratsides will be strengthening the play of the team. Co-
Captains Melih Sensoy and Nick Skirka who made All-Amer-
ican backfield and line man respectively, will be adding their
skill and ability to the overall performance. Providing valuable
experience to the team will be veterans Pete Hamilton. Mike
Katynsky, Bill Walker, Kambiz Behbahani, Tom Armenti, and
Frank Kolodziey and John Perrella as goalies.
With such a fine nucleus of players, the future looks bright
for the new '71 team and its chances great for a possible trip
to the finals.
Unlimited talent paired with success will be the theme for the
University of Maryland varsity and freshman basketball teams
for a long time to come. In these first history-making stages
of a much-savored national championship, Maryland students
will be exposed to the extremely keen competition of Atlantic
Coast Conference basketball.
In concentrated efforts to make Maryland number one.
Head Coach "Lefty" Driesell has expanded next year's sched-
ule to include Brown, Duquesne, and Long Island Uni-
versity. Harvard, St. John's, and Western Kentucky will join
the Terrapins on December 29-30 in the first annual Mary-
land Invitational Basketball Tournament.
Approximately 12,000 fans per game sparked the Terrapins
to an overall record of 14-11, the first winning season since
1967. The freshmen were undefeated in 16 games, culmina-
ting their season with a devastating 124-66 victory over the
frosh of the University of Virginia. These statistics are past
history, yet they provide a bright outlook for basketball at
the University of Ivlaryland.
Maryland's svifim team has always been among the top in the
tough Atlantic Coast Conference. Their record over the past
15 years is 151 wins and 35 losses, including 7 A.C.C, Titles,
2 Penn State Relay titles, and 3 Eastern Collegiate Relay
titles. In their dual meet season, Maryland swims the better
teams in the East, such as Princeton, Navy, Villanova, La
Salle and other A.C.C. teams. Next year's team will be led
by such stars as Gary Goodner, Tom Schaeberk, Chuck
Berke, Jim Clifford, and Buster Yonych.
Home meets are held in the pool at Cole fieldhouse and an
ID card is needed for admittance.
The wrestling squad faced an extremely tough schedule
during the 1970-71 wrestling season. Impressive opponents
such as Michigan, Navy, and Lehigh dealt Maryland some dis-
Non-conference teams prepared the young Terrapins for
victories over Virginia, Duke, North Carolina, and N. C. State.
Maryland won its 18th consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference
championship this year at Charlottesville, Virginia. Freshman
Steve Nicholaus, 118 pounds, and sophomore Rich Ragan, 177
pounds, won first place in the 1971 NCAA Eastern Regionals.
The 1972 NCAA Wrestling Finals will be held in Cole Field
House, the second time in 12 years. Credit for the scheduling
of this great event goes to Head Coach William E. "Sully"
Krouse who has just completed his 25th year of coaching at
the University of Maryland.
Maryland's 1970-71 indoor and outdoor track season was a
highlight in Terrapin history.
The indoor season opened with the Terps playing host to the
Washington CYO Meet before a crowd of over 9,500 people at
Cole Fieldhouse. The Maryland tracksters gave a good ac-
count of themselves, highlighted by Ed Bowie's upset win in
the 500 yard run. His time of 56.9 was the second fastest
recorded during the 1970 indoor season.
The climax of the indoor season was the NCAA Champion-
ships in Detroit, where Buddy Williamson rocketed over
16'6" to win the pole vaulting competition. Buddy, in winning,
became Maryland's fourth national champion. Also giving a
good account of himself was Marshall Bush who placed an
excellent 4th in the high hurdles.
Maryland's 1970 outdoor season also proved to be a highly
successful one. Once again the Terps captured the ACC
Crown, their 15th consecutive, and despite suffering their
first dual meet loss since 1962, enjoyed yet another record
So it looks like another great season for the 1971 Terrapin
track team as Nick Kovalakides enters his third year at the
helm of a strong veteran squad. Although there were several
key losses of personnel through graduation, the Terps have
many returning stars and several top-notch freshmen
prospects who promise to make the 1971-72 season an ex-
In the past years, the Maryland baseball team has produced
more professional athletes than any other University team.
Although little publicity is given to varsity baseball, thousands
of dollars have been invested over the past years by pro ball
organizations to gain the contract rights for these exceptional
Such players as John Hetrick, George Kasmarek, Mike Her-
son, Tom Bradley and George Manz have signed professionally
and currently play on various league teams. The total bonus
money alone paid to these ball players was probably over
one hundred thousand dollars.
Maryland also boasts four All-American Baseball players be-
ginning with Tom Brown in 1962, followed by Jim Pitt in
1964, John Hentrick in 1967 and Gene Hiser in 1970.
Maryland's record over the past six years has been excep-
tional. Since 1965 when the team won their first ACC Cham-
pionship, Maryland has twice won the Championship and three
times finished second. During this time their record has
been 105 wins and 52 losses.
Last year coach Jack Jackson had another good crop of
potential major leaguers, and improved even more upon the
past record of the team. Varsity players returning this year will
help Coach Jackson to build a strong baseball team for
Lacrosse is one of today's fastest growing spectator sports
in colleges and universities. This rugged, demanding game
requires a mental alertness, tough physical conditioning, and
cool-headed agility. Lacrosse at Maryland is in the primary
stages of development not only toward dominance in the ACC
but in the nation as well.
Clayton "Bud" Beardmore succeeded Dr. John "Hezzy" How-
ard as head coach in June, 1969. Beardmore, a former all-
sports star from Annapolis High and Severn Prep, was chosen
All-American Midfield during his college career before grad-
uating from the University of Maryland in 1962.
Last spring the stickmen played an 11 game schedule includ-
ing such universities as Princeton, Brown, Virginia and Hop-
kins. The excitement that fills the air before a crucial match
never fails to draw large enthusiastic crowds Lacrosse is
popularly known as "the fastest game on two feet," and the
Maryland team fully lives up to this tradition.
The Terp tennis team is looking forward to another winning
season. Never having had a losing season, the Terps hope to
be able to boast this record again this year. The team ranks
number two in the number of ACC tennis titles won and in
1968 was Co-Champion of the Cherry Blossom Tournament.
The team is coached by Doyle Royal who is one of the best
senior tennis players on the east coast. Returning members
from last year's 11-3 record team include the following:
Eugene Speni, Neil Paterson, Gary Silverman, and Andy
Cohen, all of whom had winning seasons last year. James
Wesner, Dan Hicks, and John Beck should round out the
IVIaryland has a golf course available for anyone on campus.
The University team also plays its home matches there. The
golf squad always ranks high in the conference and they had
a good year last spring as well. The players do a lot of the
recruiting for the team but any student can try out for the
team by contacting Coach Cronin.
Intramurals offer competitive sports in a wide variety of ac-
tivities. They provide students with the opportunity to strive
for excellence through expert instruction and keen competi-
tion. For further information, contact Coach Kovalakides,

who wish to serve the Air Force, the University of Mary-
land and the surrounding community. Although it is spon-
sored by the Arnold Air Society which is a men's hon-
orary within ROTC, Angel Flight is a civilian organization.
There are many misconceptions about Angel Flight. To com-
ment on a few —
1. They are not Air Force Cadets.
2. They are not stewardesses in training.
3. They do not carry guns.
4. They are not all sorority girls.
5. They're not war mongers, hawl<s or fascist pigs. In fact,
Angel Flight contains girls who both support and op-
pose the War.
Angel Flight members serve the University as official hostesses.
They usher at football and basketball games in the press and
VIP boxes and on the floor of Cole Fieldhouse, banquets and
receptions held by Administration officials and major Uni-
versity functions such as the President's Convocation.
Angel Flight serves the community by participation in special
projects such as making puppets for children's hospitals,
stuffing Christmas stockings for the Salvation Army, visiting
soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital, writing to soldiers in Viet-
nam, collecting money on roadblocks for the American Cancer
Society and delivering toys to children at Christmas time.

and a willingness to serve her country. University and com-
munity is welcome and invited to rush Angel Flight.

Draft Counseling Service
A man is to be inducted in a week; he comes to you for help. A
high school student has questions about the lottery or student
deferment: he asks you. A conscientious objector discusses his
inability to participate with the army; he sees you.
All of this is the Draft Counseling Service. People in need of
help, people giving help. No attempt is made to tell a man what
course to follow, but simply to help each man chart a course in
the direction he has chosen.
The Draft Counseling Service is not a club; it's not a social
group. You can't just be interested in helping people with their
draft problems, but you must be willing to commit many hours a
week to counsel, read and re-read. Does it sound like a lot of
work? It is, but then there's a lot of satisfaction too.
What if you don't have the time to be a counselor, but would still
like to help? Fine, whatever your skills, interests, or schedule,
there is a place for you in the Draft Counseling Service.
For further information, stop by the Draft Counseling Office,
located in the Student Union or call 454-4707.

Maryland Medieval Mercenary Militia
Warring and wenching their way across the campus of the
University of Maryland is a band of dedicated people more
determined and sinister than an army of water flouridators. This
is your Maryland Medieval Mercenary Militia (in war and peace).
Operating out of their spacious headquarters in the catacombs
beneath the limestone steps of Francis Scott Key Hall (last metal
door on the right), this non-political group (monarchists
predominating) takes to delight in recreating those exciting
days of yesteryear. Actually a loose confederation of deposed
nobility, refugees from fencing and archery classes, and
Captain America's kid brother, this group is famous for its
recreations and celebrations of such historic events as the
Battle of Hastings, Stamford Bridge, Maldon, the Hunnish
Slaughter of the Burgundians, Clantarf, and other minor
colossal blunders of military history.
The Militia demonstrated its genuine concern for the peace of
the University at the 1971 Maryland - South Carolina Basketball
Game. In full battle gear, the militia held off 14,000 screaming.
bloodthirsty, vengeful fans as they escorted the South Carolina
team on to the court of Cole Fieldhouse, thus stopping a fist
fight as had ended the last game.
The main asset of this peace-loving group is a surplus U. S.
Navy motor whaleboat which is being converted into a twelve-
oared dragonship for the Viking season.
For those of a less civilized mind the Militia also has a Renais-
sance dance and music section specializing in those lascivious
specialities of that delightfully decadent age.
All good, bad, or mediocre warriors and wenches are invited to
join this beloved, wholesome, funloving group.

PACE — People Active in Community Effort — is the student
administered organization which coordinates community in-
volvement throughout the rural and urban areas surrounding
Based on the understanding that the University cannot isolate
itself from social forces and needs outside the academic com-
munity, and that classroom education is enhanced by involve-
ment, PACE provides a broad range of opportunities for the
committed, activist student.
Education, mental health, physical health, and community
action are the four areas of activity concentration.
EDUCATION: Educational activities on a one-to-one and one-
to-group teaching basis include tutoring, adult education,
arts and crafts work, recreation. Black awareness, as well as a
number of other specific skills training.
MENTAL HEALTH: Opportunities for work within the mental
health area include involvement with delinquents, the retarded,
and the mentally ill on an institutional and out-patient basis.
COMMUNITY ACTION: Approaching community and individual
problems by finding out and dealing directly with the cause is
the basis of community action work. Such activities might
involve the areas of consumer rights, legal rights, landlord-
tenant relationships, etc.
An Emergency Service Corps is part of the community action
area. The Corps is composed of students who cannot con-
tribute their time on a regular basis, but who can work in the
community when a specific short-term need arises.
PHYSICAL HEALTH: Working in hospitals in the critical areas
of support and recreation staff is the primary undertaking of
students involved in physical health.
A strong focal point of PACE is a commitment to expansion
of areas of involvement in order that more students can utilize
their specific skills within the community. Students are en-
couraged to propose projects of their own for which they can
receive either technical or financial support or both.
Contact the PACE office in the Student Union (ext. 4275) or
Director of Community Service Programs, Mr. Harry Walker
(ext. 2827), for further information.
Physical Therapy Club

the field of physical therapy through lectures, meetings and
by visiting hospitals.
Political Science Club
The Political Science Club provides a forum for students of
all political persuasions to debate, study, and participate in the
American political system. The major portion of club activity
is based upon informal association rather than regular meet-
ings. Club members often gather in the Student Union for
evening programs, various political functions, and joint
programs with other campus political groups. The major service
the club provides members is contact with other students who
have an active interest in politics.
Residence Halls Association
The Residence Halls Association exists as a student organiza-
tion trying to obtain rightful responsibilities for all students
living on campus. This group has initiated the institution of
such things as the coeducational residence halls, visitation
hours, andJTiany student services.
What the RHA seeks to obtain for the 8300 students on campus
is the opportunity to establish the rules and regulations which
best suit the needs of the individual resident. This could
hopefully include the creation of diverse living conditions,
and the more reasonable establishment of social regulations.
The RHA has not been as viable an organization in the past
as it should be. The only governmental functions have been
those which the University has allowed it to perform, and
they have been menial. To operate as a truly representative
organization, the Residence Halls Association must have the
support of all resident students to gain these rights which have
Ever since man has walked the earth, he has reached for the
sky, tried to break free of gravity. The Skydiver's Club offers
everyone a chance to overcome his earth-boundness. Imagine
yourself diving out of a plane two miles high, in a matter of
seconds reaching a terminal velocity of 120 mph and then — a
feeling of suspension, buoyancy, flying! Those members
with the competitive spirit try for precision in relative work
(performing turns, somersaults, etc.) while in freefall or for
accuracy in landing as close to or hopefully, on the target
which is a small metal disk situated dead-center in the pea
The purpose of the Skydiver's Club is to train men and women
in the rules and safety of skydiving, and then to provide the
opportunity to jump. For a small membership fee, a student
gets expert training, use of club equipment, a chance to
compete against other colleges, and an enhanced social
life with the fantastic people who engage in the sport of sky
Every skydiver soon learns that the sport is a safe sport as
long as the rules are followed. Training is done very thor-
oughly by well-qualified club members (e.g. their president is
a member of the U. S. Parachuting Team). By experience,
a jumper works his way up to 60 second free-falls and in-
tricate relative work.
The Skydiver's Club is not appealing for "nuts" as many be-
lieve, but entices all those men and women who desire ad-
venture, fun, excitement, competition and a chance to fly
the friendly skies.
Sociology Club conducts special discussions or problems in
sociology. Its members serve area mental health organizations.
Student Government Association
The Student Government Association at the University is an
ever-changing body that is continually striving for both social
and academic improvement so every University student may
gain from college all that he or she is seeking. The diverse
organization's scope of services and programs reaches into
every realm of student life. Its members work for improvement
in every area and strive to protect the rights of students.
The opportunities in this realm of service are endless, but the
fate of the University and the success of the plan demand in-
volvement and commitment . SGA hopes that somewhere
within its myriad committees you can find something for
your present and for your future.
The structure of SGA is as follows:
I. Executive Branch

Since television is normal, its advocates must become very
abnormal. The Television Workshop offers a bewildering
variety of cameras, lights, microphones and videotapes to the
right person vi/ho wishes to do something, say something,
accomplish something that will be seen and heard by the
multitudes. In effect, television is one giant telephone, — it's not
how you say it but rather what you have to say. The genera-
tion that gave us post-war babies the boob tube is slowly
dying out. It is the Workshop's intent to inject a media-
oriented generation into the lumbering oaf that television is
today. If you can survive the compromise of principles and
ethics in a money-minded field, then you can change the
vapid, flickering image of today's television into a creatively
honest image for the future. Too many people treat television
like the toaster — The Television Workshop treats it like a

Terrapin Sl(i Club
Terrapin Ski Club offers the student an excellent opportunity
to increase his skill as a skier or to begin to learn the
sport. Members in the club see films, lectures, and demonstra-
tions on the techniques and equipment of skiing. In past years
trips were taken during Christmas, semester break, and Easter
to Canada, Vermont and Maine. Short weekend trips were also
taken to nearby ski areas. To fit the budget of students, all trips
are at the lowest prices for members of the club. Just this past
year the ski club trained their own ski patrol and also sponsored
a ski team which participated In a New England ski league.
Terrapin Trail Club
The Terrapin Trail Club is an escapist organization having no
political, cultural, religious, or social affiliations, outside of it-
self. In no manner is its like to be found anywhere else on this
campus. T.T.C. is the only true outdoors group at the University
of Maryland. All "club life" is focused around becoming an
intimate part of east coast ecology.
The Club is made up of several varieties of persons; reformed
cavers, psychopathic canoeists, sullen backpackers, an
absolutely manic group of trail skiers, and a small right wing
bunch of odd-balls who just like to hike and camp occasionally.
Most of the active members are a fairly homogeneous mob.
They tend to be a trifle dirty from caving, possibly a spot of
grease on the face to cut down winter winds. Many of them have
sort of a far-away look in their eyes that comes from staring off
mountain tops and squinting in the glare of sunlight in white-
water. They love to sing risque songs, gamble, drink, boast
about past adventures (called trip reports, officially), fight with
one another, and heartily enjoy outright lying.
Trail Club's formal meetings are held in the Student Union every
other Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Business is discussed; future trips
are planned; and trip reports given. On occasion, these meet-
ings end with a slide show of past trips. Informal meetings are
incredibly so they are mostly to discuss trips, and to try to
interpret the last formal meeting.
Trips themselves are quite variable, occasionally they are large
and planned well in advance, such as the annual Old Rag Moun-
tain Hike. More often, they are small, 4-5 people on the
average, and not planned more than a week in advance. All the
trips are cheap. Trips range from a two-hour hike to Great Falls
to a day climb at Sugarloat. a weekend of backpacking, a week
of camping, to month long canoe trips in the summer.
All that is needed to join is interest, perseverance, and, two
dollars. Mostly the two dollars. This entitles you to become part
of the biggest happy - go - lucky bunch of refugees from the
Dark Ages this side of the Great Wall.
Underwater Diving Terrapins
Underwater Diving Terrapins (Scuba club) is an organiza-
tion for those who get their kicks swimming underwater.

to certification by the National Association of Underwater In-
structors, through which beginners learn skin and scuba diving
skills. In addition, the club maintains a regular schedule of
diving expeditions year round, ranging from oyster diving in the
Chesapeake Bay to exploring sunken ships. The highlight of
each year is a diving trip to Florida over semester break. The
club meets every two weeks throughout the year, and the meet-
ings are frequently highlighted by films and slide shows of past
expeditions. By joining the club, a diver can also get substantial
discounts on diving equipment through the club's purchasing
officer. Yearly dues are modest ($5) and other expenses (air

University Bowling Club
University Bowling Club organizes University students to
participate in matches and tournaments with each other, with
other schools, and in national contests.
University Commuters' Association
The University Commuters' Association occupies a unique posi-
tion in the structure of the University as the official under-
graduate student organization which represents the commuters'
interest to SGA and the Administration. UCA has a secondary
obligation of providing social, athletic and academic programs
for the commuters.
Commuters have problems, problems different from those faced
by students living on campus. On-campus students have the
advantages of a continuing academic atmosphere, a small refer-
ence group to which to relate (such as a fraternity house or a
residence hall) and close access to University facilities. The
commuter has none of these advantages. Too often the com-
muters' day is a frantic rush frustrated by overfilled parking lots
and late buses.
The UCA's role Is to give the commuters a sense of belonging to
the University. This is accomplished by providing programs and
activities that will help with the commuters' academic and social
development. At present UCA is working with the Administra-
tion to provide a study and lounge facility in each academic
building, as well as over-night housing facilities for commuters.
A co-op Gas Station which will allow students to buy gas at an
8t discount per gallon is being developed. The UCA has
finished construction on a Peoples' Park, located behind Lot 2,
which provides a student an opportunity "to get away from all
the world's pressures." In addition to these programs an exten-
sive social calendar is planned which includes dances, GIGIFS,
car rallies, hay and boat rides, etc. Finally, the UCA has planned
a newsletter to keep commuters abreast of developments on the
Opportunities to participate in UCA activities are open to all.
UCA needs people and welcomes everyone. Come in and talk to
them. Their offices are located in the Student Union.

College Republican Club
The University of Maryland College Republican Club is large
enough and varied enough in interests and ideology to be a valu-
able experience to anyone interested in government, politics or
just good times. In addition, the club provides a platform for as
intense a political experience as desired. Current members of
the club have been elected State Federation Chairmen, and
Republican State Central Committee members, as well as run
youth campaigns for local, congressional, and state-wide
candidates. Former presidents of this club include several
county and state party office holders and a U. S. Senator.
The Club offers many opportunities: a powerful source of in-
formation on government and social issues, monthly seminars
at the Capitol with Senator Mathias, the annual State and
Regional conventions, advising candidates or officials on stu-
dent opinions, experience in political debate, the annual Young
Republican National Leadership Training School, providing
research back-up for elected officials, person - to - person meet-
ings with people in the news and the real story behind the news
story, athletic contests with rival groups, parties, running for
club office or chairing committees, helping elect favorite
candidates, and most important of all being a part of one of the
more diverse groups of interesting, three dimensional stu-
dents assembled on campus. To members, the College Re-
publican Club is a long remembered part of college life.
University Of Maryland Rugby Club
The University of tvlaryland Rugby football club had its
beginning in the spring of 1967, when interested students from
Baltimore and Washington began practice on campus. That first
season they played two games, winning one and losing one.
In the past, a large turnout has made it possible to play a full "B"
schedule in the eastern rugby union. A large number of people
who had played overseas gave the team the necessary
experience to compile a 6-4 won-lost record against teams from
George Washington, Georgetown, Virginia, Wheeling,
Washington and George Mason.
The following spring marked the return of a number of veterans
augmented by many former football players. Natural ability
coupled with rapidly gained experience qualified the team for
"A" level status at the end of the season. This status was justified
in the fall when the club compiled a 6-4 record against all "A"
Since the fall of 1968, the club has continually striven to
produce even better teams. Membership is open to any student
or faculty member who desires to play. Experience and size are
not as important as enthusiasm.
The team consists not only of undergraduates,' but also of
graduate students and faculty members. There are currently
four teams representing the University. Since there are no
substitutions allowed once the game has commenced, a
premium is placed on fitness.
Practice is held from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday and Thurs-
day afternoons on Denton field. All interested persons are urged
to attend. No equipment is necessary except football or soccer
boots. Experienced members of the team provide the coaching.
University of lUlaryland Veterans Club
The Veterans Club stresses three areas as its essence: a) Social;
b) Educational; c) Recreational.
Realizing the unique position of the veterans as he or she
returns to civilian life within the academic arena, and having ex-
perienced the situations involved in this adjustment themselves,
the membersofthis organization provideaforum for exchanging
and sharingexperiences.This idea of a forum covers the rangef rom
impromptu rap sessions tothedevelopmentof newfriendships, to
even securing parttime employment. Additionally, the club spon-
sors picnics, parties, and numerous happy hours to round out the
social end of things.
The club maintains an extensive test file for the use of the
membership. Since the membership includes students from
every college within the University, and spans both the graduate
as well as the undergraduate level, assistance with difficult
courses is as good in quality and better in terms of availability
than anywhere else on campus. The Club also keeps a close
contact with the Veterans Administration with regard to educa-
For the would be Ail-American, the Veterans Club fields teams
in the open league in Softball, Football and Basketball. In
addition, one can always encounter members interested in
hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, andsailing.
The Veterans Club is not a military outfit, but rather stu-
dents with a wide range of interests brought together by a
University Chorus is made up of students, faculty, and resi-
dents of the community. They have performed vi^ith the Washing-
ton National Symphony at Constitution Hall in Washington,
D.C.at the Merriweather Post pavilion in Columbia and at the
Lincoln center in Nevi^ York City. The chorus also gives regular
concerts on campus. Directed by Paul Traver, the 100-member
chorus meets one night a week. Membership is based on audi-
tions sponsored by the music department.
University Sports Car Ciub
University Sports Car Club provides information for sports
car buffs and an outlet for their energy through rallies, auto-
crosses and other activities.
People. That's the key word. People listen to radio and more
than three-fourths of the residents of the University listen to
WtVIUC. WMUC, 650 AM, is the everyday, allday campus radio
station that can be found on any radio anywhere on campus.
WMUC is your radio station, run by students and listened to
Since WMUC broadcasts only to the students of the University,
its staff can broadcast things no other radio station wants to
or dares to.
Of course WMUC plays music — top 40, folk music, acid
rock — but so do many stations. WMUC is in competition
with all of the stations in the Washington metropolitan area,
one of the toughest radio markets in the United States, but is
still the most listened to of all the radio stations available to
students on the College Park campus.
There are quite a few things that distinguish WMUC from
those other stations: you can hear all campus news reported
and you are offered in-depth coverage of major campus events.
You can hear public service work that no other station offers;
from campus activity announcements to the evening dining
hall menus. You can hear underground music in its original,
uncensored version. You can hear Maryland basketball and
football live. You can hear Student Government Association
election results as they are tabulated.
At the beginning of every semester, WMUC needs people-
not just radio and television majors, but anyone who is willing
to learn and who wants to help. They need announcers,
reporters, sportscasters, engineers and workers in business,
traffic, continuity and promotions departments because every
job is done by students. WMUC will be holding auditions to
find you, because behind the radio or in front of it. the people
is what WMUC is all about.
You'll be hearing from WMUC.
The Women's Liberation Movement is a nationwide movement
committed to the freeing of women from the exploitation
and oppressive economic, social and cultural institutions of
The movement feels that our society conditions women in a
very special way. Women are almost never given the informa-
tion which would help them control their own lives, change
society or become independent. Through educational work,
direct action and community and campus organizing, the
Women's Movement is attempting to liberate women from
their passive positions. Committed to the need for revolu-
tionary change with the radical left, Women's Liberation
focuses on mobilizing women to fight for a humane society —
a society which recognizes the importance of women's free-
dom as well as the freedom of all people, which puts human
needs before profit, and which follows the principles of sharing
the work, the decisions, and the joys. Through their involve-
ment. Women's Lib members hope to learn about themselves,
their history, their roles in society, and their strengths and
capabilities in building a new society.
Women's Liberation sponsors weekly meetings, monthly
programs, educationals, speakers, and committees. Some
current projects include a Day Care Center for the children
of the University Community, Abortion Counseling Collective
which provides abortion and birth control information, and a
Speakers Bureau, which supplies speakers and films on
topics which concern women.
Women's Liberation is an open group and welcomes anyone
who is interested in challenging women's oppression. The
Women's Center is located in Room 202 of the Student Union.
The phone is 454-541 1 .
Young Americans for Freedom
Young Americans for Freedom aim to educate students in the
principles of conservation and libertarian philosophy and to
direct political actions toward that orientation.
The Young Democrats is a growing, thriving, and active
campus organization. Because of close proximity to the na-
tion's Capitol, the club invites well-known speakers to come
and discuss issues of concern, such as the War, race rela-
tions, and the environment.
Many members travel to the state Capitol in Annapolis to
lobby before the state legislature concerning bills affecting
student life. During the local, state and national elections, the
Club assists in the making of many campaign platforms for
candidates running for office. In this manner, they are at-
tempting to allow student opinion to be heard throughout the
government by means of constructive, rather than destructive,
methods. But work isn't all that occupies Club time, for the
Young Democrats Club sponsors social events ranging from
picnics to home parties.
If you would like to help make this Club an even stronger force
in county, state, and national politics, watch for announcements
and attend one of their meetings. They are held every three
weeks in the Student Union Building.
Zero Population Growth
Zero Population Growth is a local chapter of a national
organization advocating population control by limiting family
size. Learning on impressive and frightening population
forecasts for the future, the group would have everyone pledge
to have no more than two natural children for every married
couple If two people want a larger family. ZPG points out
that there are millions of children in orphanages and other
homes waiting anxiously for someone to take them home.
ZPG members are strong advocates of birth control and the
teaching and use of birth control to limit population. The
population bomb is everybody's baby, they say.
Undoubtedly the most controversial publication on campus
— and one of the most controversial in the country — has
been Argus, the student feature magazine.
Last year Argus gained national attention with its First Annual
National Creative Pornography Contest, an event that was
assailed by such diverse interests as Spiro Agnew, Women's
Liberation, The American White People's Party, DRUM,
Governor Marvin Mandel and Young Americans for Freedom.
The $175 writing contest was temporarily suppressed when
state Attorney General Francis Burch declared the issue
"largely hard-core pornography." The editors of Argus
then launched a court suit against school and state officials
which at this writing has not been decided.
An issue later the magazine raised the ire of some with its
"All-Amerikan Issue" which featured, among other things,
American flag decals from Reader's Digest and a pack of
Last year was not Argus' first in the area of controversy. In
the fall of 1969 the state had also suppressed an issue, one
which was to have had a picture of a burning American flag
on the cover. The editors sued the state and won the case a
year later in Federal District Court.
Beyond the sensationalism, though, the magazine has at-
tempted to tackle a number of relevant matters, featuring
in recent years a lengthy analysis of homosexuality on cam-
pus, interviews with Ralph Nader and Mort Sahl and looks
at various facets of student life.
Publication of Argus varies from year to year. Until last year,
It had never appeared over three times in one year. Last year
there were seven issues.
Argus is open for anyone to join and encourages students to
do so. No experience is required, though it doubtless helps.
Those interested should go to room 46-A in Taliaferro Hall
or call 454-4308 for information.
Calvert magazine is the University's literary publication which
combines artistic quality and professional layout. Calvert is a
continuing attempt to present the University community with
the output of its most talented writers, poets, photographers,
It offers a very good means of expression and recognition for
creative students. There is always room for staffers, to read
manuscripts, type stencils, distribute the magazine to the
public, and generally do everything.
The Calvert office is located in Room 46 C of the Taliaferro
catacombs. The phone number is 454-3726.
The Course Guide provides the campus community with an
effective evaluation of professors and courses. By describing
the content, structure, and loopholes of various courses,
along with a summary of the hang-ups and idiosyncracies
of many professors, the Guide aids students in selecting
their class schedules.
The numerical data presented the Guide is collected by
means of a computer-tabulated questionnaire which also
affords space for students to comment on the course and in-
structor. Student remarks and the professor's description of
the course format and objectives are synthesized by a staff
writer; his article accompanies and complements the statistics.
Maintaining that teaching ability is the primary factor to be
considered in hiring and retaining faculty members. Course
Guide provides a means of initiating change in the academic
community while working within the "system". A reputable
and reliable source of constructive criticism would presumably
influence tenure and promotion policies. The Guide, then,
could be beneficial not only to students, but to faculty and
administrators as well.
For additional information, visit the Course Guide office under
the steps of Taliferro Hall in room 46-B or call 454-4140.
The Diamondback, the University's daily newspaper, has been
publishing for more than 60 years and is both an educational
and preprofessional extracurricular activity. It affords Uni-
versity students the opportunity to learn newspaper journal-
ism by actively participating in it.
Extremely long hours are required of some 10 top staffers
who coordinate coverage of campus and relevant local, na-
tional and international affairs. A tradition of awardwinning
writing and acknowledged excellence of the newspaper,
consistantly rated ail-American by the Associated Collegiate
Press, make the Diamondback something for University
students to be proud of.
The backbone of the organization is the staff of 50 to 60
writers and copy editors who may spend as little as one night
a week working for the paper. No experience is required and
nonjournalism majors are welcome. EconomicsandGovernment
majors have become seniorstaffersin recentyears.
The office, located in room 101 of the journalism building is
usually open all day and most of the night. Drop in anytime.
us. the University of Maryland yearbook, has adopted a
totally new approach this year. Beginning with a change from
the name. The Terrapin, the yearbook now publishes three
(3) volumes, one in January and two in May. Instead of the
usual snapshots, US seeks top quality photographic essays.
Through select stories, US gives a feeling about the mood of
the year as well as an account of its events.
The old format has been replaced by a soft cover magazine-
style layout which better displays the work. US is lool<ing for
photographers and writers who want a chance to work on a
new idea and offers in return one of the best vehicles for

one interested should drop by as early as possible and get
