hygiene practice. The first two years of the pre-professional 
curriculum include general education requirements of the 
University of Maryland, dental hygiene education accreditation 
requirements, and elective lower division courses in one of 
the recommended minor areas of study. Completion of the pre- 
professional curriculum at the University of Maryland or

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 Ed- 
ucation was organized in 1920 for the purpose of preparing 
men and women to teach in colleges, secondary schools, 
elementary schools, kindergarten, and nursery schools. Other 
students enrolled in the college include those interested in 
such vocations as administrative positions or librarians.

neering was formally inaugurated in 1894, graduating its first 
class in 1898. The College currently offers baccalaureate 
degree programs in aerospace, chemistry, civil, electrical, 
and mechanical engineering, with a sixth program in fire 
protection. Masters and doctorate degree work are offered 
in all these fields (except fire protection), in engineering ma- 
terials, and in nuclear engineering. This college is headed by 
Dean Robert Beckmann.

In 1918, one of the country's first separately organized 
schools of home economics was initiated at College Park. 
This college has programs for men and women interested in 
the social, economic, scientific, and aesthetic aspects of 
family living in relation to the community. Four departments 
offer a range of courses giving professional preparation in 
human nutrition, food, dietetics, institution management,

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 

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.

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

university services 

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. 

Counseling Center 

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 
to students. 

Food Service 

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- 
ceptable standards. 

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. 

Health 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

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. 

HELP Center 

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. 

On-Campus Housing 

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. 

Off-Campus Housing 

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 
Work Study. 

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, 
and special educational, cultural, and social opportunities. 

The office is located on the second floor of the North Ad- 
ministration Building. 

Judiciary Office 

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 
efforts of students, faculty, and administration in disciplinary 



Specifically their main functions are: 

1. processing reports and correspondence which deal with 
disciplinary matters 

2. interviewing .and counseling students involved in discipli- 
nary situations. 

3. scheduling and coordinating the activities of the various 
judicial boards. 

4. reviewing and/or approving the recommendations of these 
boards, and 

5. maintaining a central file of student disciplinary records. 

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 
vocational counseling. 

(2) Maximizing the amount of academic responsibility as- 
sumed by the student. 

(3) Intensive advisement in the appropriate courses in the 
student's curriculum. 

Additional information about OIR may be obtained in Room 
215 of the North Administration Building or by phoning 454- 

Placement and Credentials 

The Placement Office, located in the basement of Cumber- 
land Hall in the Cambridge Complex, offers numerous services 
to all students. 

Career advisors, programs, services and facilities are geared 
toward broadening students' knowledge of graduate school, 
government, education, business and industry. Students can 
explore career interests on their own (or with the help of the 
Career Librarian) in the Career Library, Room 26 of the Place- 
ment Office. It contains summer and permanent as well as 
non-degree job leads, an extensive collection of reference 
materials on numerous occupational fields (particularly 
helpful for freshmen and other underclassmen), over 900

bers of Commerce, informative job campaign literature, and 
reference materials on nearly 1000 major employers. 

Seniors within two semesters of graduation are encouraged to 
participate in the on-campus interview program. Over 500 
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, 
an on-campus interview program with state and out-of-state 
school systems, and descriptive literature on school systems

tion on any phase of Student Union facilities, services, or 
activities can be obtained by contacting the Student Union 

Conference rooms: 

Available to all groups of all sizes are a dozen conference 
rooms located at various spots in the building. The rooms 
can be reserved for almost any hour and for numerous 
purposes. Contact the Reservationist for details. Phone 


During construction the main lounge (Room 112) on the first 
floor is being used by the Student Supply Store. Upon com- 
pletion of construction, this lounge will be returned to normal 
use. Room 120 (former small auditorium) is now being used as 
a lounge from building opening until 4 P.M. From 4 P.M. until 
building closing, it will be a meeting room. On the second 
floor there are three lounges — rooms 201 , 207 and 235. 

Party Patios: 

Two open-air patios are located off the first floor. The west 
patio can be reserved tor social affairs through the reserva- 
tionist. During the construction the east patio will be ren- 
ovated so that it too can be used for social affairs. 


Dominating the second floor of the Union is the ballroom. 
Equipped for dances, banquets, conventions, and motion 
pictures, the ballroom is available for any large gathering. 
Banquets can be arranged for 350 — 400. An audience of 
600 people can be seated theater-style in the room. There is a 
service charge for the use of the ballroom. 

Film Programs: 

Every weekend during the school year an entertainment film 
program is offered. The Union tries to program the most cur- 
rent entertainment films. On Tuesdays is the Concert Film 
Series which includes classical, foreign, experimental, 
educational, student, and entertainment films. The Student 
Union Board calendar lists the films for the current semester. 


The Student Information Center provides general information 
for students and serves as a general reference for all uni- 
versity publications. It is open from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. 


weekdays and is located in Room 111 in the Student Union 
lobby. The University Sponsors under the direction of the 
Student Activities Department, operate this service and 
answ/er any questions which may arise concerning the Uni- 
versity. Brochures are available from the various Student 
Services as well as leaflets from academic departments, stu- 

dent organizations and religious services. Although most of 
the contact is personal, the information Center may also be 
reached by telephone. 

As an additional service, sponsors serve as guides for 
specially arranged tours of the campus. 



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 
head coaches of particular sports, the Men's Intramural 
Department office, located in room 120 of the Armory, 454- 
3124, or the Women's Physical Education Department, 
located in Preinkert Fieldhouse, 454-2626. 

Varsity sports provide students a chance for developing excel- 
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 
overall record. 

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- 
appointing losses. 

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 
breaking campaign. 

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- 
citing one. 


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 
college stars. 

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 
starting line-up. 


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, 

Head of the Men's Intramural Department, 120 Armory, 454- 
3124, or the Women's Physical Education Department,

Honoraries and 
Professional Societies 

EVERY ONE OF THE 90 DEPARTMENTS in the different 
colleges has at least two groups that you may become eligible 
to join during your University career — honoraries and pro- 
fessional societies. 

Membership in an academic honorary is based on scholarship. 
Sometimes requirements are based on your average in your 
major, sometimes on your cumulative average. Other honor- 
aries base membership requirements on leadership, or as in 
the case of Pi Delta Epsilon, outstanding service to one of the 
campus media. 

Professional societies usually require prospective members to 
give some concrete indication that they have serious intention 
of pursuing a specific career. For example, Sigma Delta Chi, 
the National professional journalism society which recently 
opened its membership to women, requires members to sign 
a pledge to become working journalists. 

There are a number of campus-wide honoraries which stress 
one or more of the specifications. Alpha Lambda Delta, organ- 
ized here in 1932, recognizes high scholastic achievement of 
freshmen women who have obtained a 3.5 average during 
their first or second semesters here. 

Freshmen men who have earned a 3.5 average in their first or 
second semesters will be tapped for Phi Eta Sigma. These men, 

along with the women of Alpha Lambda Delta, run extensive 
tutoring programs and hold two banquets a year to induct 
new members. 

Junior men who have earned a 2.5 overall average and have 
shown leadership are eligible to join Omicron Delta Kappa, 
one of the highest honors an undergraduate man can receive 
at this university. 

A 2.5 average and performance of service to the University 
qualifies a junior woman to. join Diadem. Members are chosen 
at the end of their sophomore year and must show evidence 
of leadership, service and scholarship. 

Senior women who have demonstrated outstanding leader- 
ship in campus activities or services and have earned a 3.0 
overall average may be tapped for Morter Board. Morter 
Board members sell traditional chrysanthemum corsages for 
Homecoming to finance their annual scholarship awards 

Twice each year junior and senior sorority women are chosen 
from their respective houses for membership in Diamond. 
Tapping is based on contributions to campus and to their 
individual houses. 

Kalegethos, the greek men's honorary, was founded in 1957. 
To be eligible for tapping a fraternity man must be a junior 
with an overall average above the all men's average and have 
excelled in three areas of activity: the individual fraternity 
chapter, the Interfraternity council system and the general 
campus. Tapping is usually during an intermission of the IFC 
Presents program. 

Membership in Phi Beta Kappa, the national honor society 
recognizing excellence in scholastic activity, is open to any 
junior in the college of arts and sciences with a 3.75 cumula- 
tive average or a senior with an average of 3.5. 

The senior academic honorary. Phi Kappa Phi, elects its 
members from all schools and colleges. These students must 
range in the upper 10 per cent of their graduating class. 
Undergraduates must have at least 60 semester hours of 
course work at Maryland and at least a 3.3 average. Masters 
candidates must have a 3.7 average and doctoral candidates 
must have at least a 3.5 average.

nam, collecting money on roadblocks for the American Cancer

course to follow, but simply to help each man chart a course in 
the direction he has chosen.

group. You can't just be interested in helping people with their

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.

administered organization which coordinates community in- 
volvement throughout the rural and urban areas surrounding 
the University. 

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 

Physical Therapy Club aims to acquaint the members with 
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 
been denied. 

Sl(ydiver's Club 

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 

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

Television Workshop 

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

in Tawes Fine Arts Building, or phone 454-2541 . 

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. 
The club sponsors a yearly training program which leads 
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 
refills, etc.) are reduced. 

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. 

The University of IMaryland 
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- 
tion benefits. 


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 
common experience. 


University Chorus 

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, 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 
by students. 

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. 

Women's Liberation 

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 
American society. 

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. 

Young Democrats 

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, 
and artists. 

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 
displaying work. 

The new format is very flexible and open to new input. Any- 
one interested should drop by as early as possible and get
