WHERE TO GO FOR ANSWERS
OFFICE OF RESIDENT LIFE
3rd Floor, North Administration Building, Ext. 271 1
The Office of Resident Life coordinates the
housing services for the 39 dorms on campus. You
should direct your questions about receiving a room
to this office. Go in person because every semester
the office is swamped with phone calls about rooms.
Once you're in a dorm, your questions about
residence hall living can be handled by the staff
members living in the dorm. Every dorm or floor has
a resident assistant (RA) or a graduate assistant (GR)
to help you with problems. These staff members are
also students and can give you pointers on classes,
instructors, and what's happening on campus.
Dorm life may seem disappointing at first. Your
room may be small and cramped. There may be a lot
of noise, or someone on the hall may bug you.
Despite these inconveniences, most students agree
that group living is one of the most important parts
of the college experience. Living on campus has two
outstanding advantages: easy accessibility to classes
and unlimited opportunities for meeting people.
The following are some things to expect about
dorm life. For further information, read the residence
hall handout which is included with your housing
Types of Living Areas
There are three living areas on campus with which
students usually identify.
The "hill" is the group of older dorms on the main
part of campus. Closest to the classroom buildings
and to College Park, these dorms are smaller and
Farther away, behind Byrd Stadium, are the
high-rise dorms which are more modern and usually
about eight floors high. Grouped three or four
together, these dorms form the three complexes of
Denton, Ellicott, and Cambridge.
The modular units, located across Route 1 behind
the fraternity houses, offer apartment-style living.
Although there is a longer walk to campus, there is
also greater freedom and better facilities. Each unit
has a living room, bathroom, study rooms, bedrooms,
and fully equipped kitchen. It's just like renting an
apartment, only cheaper.
This year two women's halls, Worcester and
Centreville, and two men's halls, Hartford and Freder-
ick, have been made "limited" dorms. "Limited"
means that the opposite sex cannot visit during a
certain period of time, usually between 12 midnight
and 12 noon, Sunday-Thursday, and between 12
noon and 1:30 p.m., Friday-Saturday. All other
dorms have no restrictions on intervisitation.
Co-ed dorms offer a different style of living. Male
and female students live within the same building,
either on different wings or on different floors.
Students like these arrangements because they pro-
vide a more relaxed atmosphere for meeting people.
Those who value privacy usually stick with the halls
for only men or for only women.
The following are some helpful tips about dorm
While the Office of Resident Life states that "hall
and roommate preference will not be honored for
new students," if problems arise after the semester
begins, arrangements to switch rooms or halls can be
made. If contemplating a move, first speak to your
To participate in dorm activities, you are asked to
pay a residence hall activity fee of no more than
$5.00 per semester.
The following are not permitted in rooms because
of safety precautions:
• fireworks, lighted candles, combustible mate-
• air conditioners
• unauthorized refrigerators
• hotplates or open flame devices
• animals or pets
Laws regulating the possession of alcoholic bever-
ages or illegal drugs are the same as the State of
Furnishings and Facilities
Typically rooms are furnished with the bare
necessities of desks, beds, and chests. Some rooms are
also furnished with leather lounge chairs and lamps.
Floors are linoleum. Walls are cinderblocks. Most
rooms are doubles; singles and triples are less com-
Here are a few ideas about improving your
• Since you will probably tire of the University's
choices of bland colors, bring anything to cover the
walls - pictures, posters, wall hangings, rugs, fish net,
material, mobiles, etc. It is illegal to repaint your
• Since there is only one overhead light, bring
• Bright curtains and matching bedspreads liven
up the room.
• Contact paper is a good and easy way to
decorate walls, windows, closets, and furniture.
• Pillows, knickknacks and extra furniture such as
nightstands, bookshelves, orange crates add variety.
• Rugs are nice, especially in the winter.
By all means, use your imagination. Make your
room more than just livable.
Some "extras" which are good to have around
• popcorn popper
• coffee pot
• electrical extension cord
• waste basket
• can openers
• glasses and cups
Laundry facilities are available in the basement of
each dorm. Washers cost $.25 per load. Dryers cost
$.10 per load. Bring your own laundry soap as well as
drying rack if you want to save money.
A linen service is also offered. Choose a plan that
suits you. To obtain additional information, check
postings in your dorm.
Perhaps the best part of dorm living is meeting
people. People are everywhere. Students hang out in
lounges and study rooms. They frequent the rec
rooms where there are ping pong tables, televisions,
pianos, and kitchens. On fair weather days they sit
outside on the mall, listen to speakers, and throw
frisbees. Students use the University sports facilities
such as the tennis and basketball courts, the swim-
ming pools at Preinkert and Cole, and the golf course.
They participate in intramurals. At night, they go to
mixers, films, speakers, and coffee houses sponsored
by the dorms.
OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING OFFICE
Room 208, Turner Laboratory, Ext. 3645
If you're going to be living off campus you may
need help finding housing and/or roommates. A good
source for assistance in these matters is the Off-Cam-
pus Housing Office. The office maintains files on
apartment, house and room rentals, as well as houses
which are for sale, and summer sublets. Units are
both furnished and unfurnished and either vacant or
to share. Most listings are within a ten-mile radius of
the University. Since housing is usually posted for
immediate occupancy, visit the office no later than
three to four weeks before you want to move in.
Because the turn-over rate is so great for housing,
the office does not print hand-out listings. Therefore,
making a personal visit to the office will accomplish
far more than corresponding by mail or phoning.
Many students have even met future roommates right
in the office!
This same office also handles Greek housing and
Summer School housing.
Living Off Campus
Although thousands of living units are available in
the area, you will probably have some trouble in
finding a place to live. Rooms rent from approxi-
mately $50 to $75 a month depending on the
accommodations offered. Some rooms have kitchen
privileges, private entrances, and private baths. Apart-
ments and houses may be shared for $50 to $75 a
month. Houses usually rent from $200 a month. Most
leases are one year or nine months.
If you don't have a car, check into the units in the
Knox Road, Adelphi Road, University Boulevard and
Lehigh Road areas. If you go out of the immediate
area for housing, the D.C. Transit bus line is a
possible means for commuting. These buses go right
through campus. Pick up schedules and route infor-
mation at the main desk of the Student Union. Bikes
are another means of transportation and probably
more convenient than buses.
Renting an unfurnished place, you'll want to keep
decorating costs to a minimum. Check both campus
and College Park bulletin boards for used furniture
ads. Also look at the Diamondback classified ads.
Inexpensive furniture may be purchased at the
Goodwill Industries, unclaimed freight companies and
factory close-outs. Furniture may also be rented from
rental agencies. Check the University Off-Campus
Housing Office for these listings.
Commuting to and from the University is a liassle.
Parking spaces on campus are scarce, and tlie campus
police don't hesitate to give out ticl<ets. As a
commuting student you may feel isolated and find it
difficult to become involved in campus life. Try to
arrange your classes so you have blocks of free time
to stay on campus. Visit the Commuter Lounges in
the Student Union, BPA, Taliaferro, and Education
buildings. Black students have set up an overnight
lounge in Nyumburu (Black Cultural Center) for
students spending the night on campus.
All commuters are automatically members of the
University Commuters' Association. Take advantage
of mixers and other activities sponsored by this
organization. Getting a job on or close to campus is
another good v^'ay to meet people, just remember,
there are 16,000 other commuters on campus.
2nd Floor, North Administration Building, Ext. 2936
The University offers many alternative styles of
living, one of which is Greek life.
If you're unhappy with dorm life, go through
rushing to get a taste of fraternity and sorority life.
Rush, which takes place the first two weeks of each
semester, consists of informal parties at the Greek
houses. Even if you decide not to join a house, rush is
a good opportunity to meet people and decide for
yourself if Greek life is what you want.
Most of the 26 fraternities and 19 sororities have
their houses on Fraternity Row, located across
campus on Route 1 in the residential section of
College Park. Greeks are always busy, going to
parties, meetings, and working on projects. They
organize charity and public service projects such as
University Blood Drive, a contest for the Heart
Association, and a Dance Marathon for Muscular
Dystrophy. Some students join fraternities and so-
rorities for the activities. Others join for the security
of having a group of close friends. The food and
rooms are said to be better than in the dorms.
Recently the Greeks have been more flexible about
choosing members and are trying to shake the
traditional image of the beer drinking party-goer. For
more information, go to the Greek Affairs Office or
to the Greek houses.
If you live in the dorm, you do have the choice of
whether or not to purchase a full board meal ticket.
A full board meal ticket may be obtained at the
beginning of the year for $310 a semester. This
entitles you to eat in one of the four dining halls on
Eating in a University dining hall is probably the
easiest way to plan for meals if you're living on
campus. And, if you don't have time to eat, the
dining hall will fix you a packed lunch. But don't
expect a home cooked meal. Since the food is
prepared in huge quantities, quality is lacking. Don't
be surprised if you gain weight. The food is starchy,
and your meal ticket allows you to eat as much as
you want. The food is monotonous, but occasionally
there are exceptionally good meals, such as national-
ity and holiday dinners.
If you don't live in the dorm, it's not really worth
your while to purchase a full board meal ticket. If
you opt not to purchase one, you may buy meals on
an individual basis in the dining hall cash lines. The
food in the cash lines is the same as in the dining
halls. You may buy complete meals, sandwiches, and
all-you-can-eat dinners. Cash lines are located in the
Student Union, Dining Hall One and other specified
An alternative to eating in the dining halls is
preparing meals in the dorms. Since cooking in dorm
rooms is illegal, dorm kitchens are provided. Students
who fix their own meals feel that while they do have
some inconveniences, they also are getting better and
more varied meals. A good way to keep food in the
dorm is to rent a refrigerator from the University
approved private company for $25 a semester.
For snacks between classes, there are vending
machines in some campus buildings and dorms. The
Student Union and Francis Scott Key Hall have the
largest collections of machines. These machines offer
just about every kind of snack you could want.
Drinks, candy, as well as soup and hamburgers are
sold. If you feel rich, you can even buy a complete
7505 Yale Avenue, 779-7370
If you're a Jewish student looking for the kind of
food mama used to fix in her "Kosher Kitchen," then
eat at Hillel. A friendly atmosphere, variety in meals,
and good food await you at the Hillel Kosher Dining
Club. For $360 a semester you can get three meals a
day Monday through Saturday and brunch and dinner
on Sunday. You also have the option of a partial
board plan which includes all meals from Sunday
dinner to Friday lunch for $340 a semester.
Shabbat at Hillel is a very special time. Everyone
eats together and then joins for services. Dress is more
formal and the atmosphere is very traditional.
Hillel is a welcome change from humdrum meals
and a lot easier than cooking your own.
Turner Laboratory, Ext. 4521
For homemade ice cream, go to the University
Dairy. The ice cream is made right in the building and
student workers give you more than enough. Besides
being able to buy all flavors of cones, sundaes and
milkshakes, you may also buy a variety of hot and
cold sandwiches. Regular hours are from 9 a.m. to 6
p.m. Monday through Friday and from noon to 6
p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Summer hours are from
10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and
from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
When you tire of dining hall hamburgers, there are
lots of places off campus where you can get more of
the same. Following is a list of fast food carry-out
restaurants close to campus.

A night on the town in College Park may mean
ending up at one of the local bars. Since the legal
drinking age in Maryland is 21, many students head
toward Washington where you can buy beer and wine
at 18. However, the local bars are fairly lax about
checking ID's. Thursday night seems to be the most
popular night for barhopping in College Park. Here
are a few you might like to try:
My Mother's Place (18th and M Streets, Washington,
Special rates to Maryland students. No cover charge
during the week and only a dollar on weekends. Good
place to go to meet people.

GROCERY STORES AND FOOD CO-OPS
There are a few grocery stores within walking
distance of the University. The Seven-Eleven on Knox
Road is limited and expensive. The best buys there
are slurpies and coffee and donuts.
Jumbo Food is the first grocery store you come to
traveling west on University Boulevard. A longer
walk. Jumbo has lower prices and a better selection.
Other supermarkets in the area include:
Giant Food (Langley Park Shopping Center)
Usually open until midnight every night except
Giant Food (6201 Greenbelt Road, Greenbelt)
Safeway (9035 Baltimore Avenue, College Park)

College is a huge expense, especially if you're

food, room, and books, you'll probably be scrounging
for pennies. But don't be discouraged, here are some
hints on earning extra money and receiving financial
If you have money problems, visit the Office of
Student Aid. This office offers many programs
designed to stretch finances so you can attend the
University. Over 80 kinds of scholarships as well as
loans, grants, and employment are awarded to eligible
Typically the jobs are in either University depart-
ment offices, dining halls, or libraries. Pay is an
hourly wage or a reduction of tuition and fees at the
beginning of semesters.
Most aid comes in a "package", which consists of
some combination of scholarship or grant money,
loan funds, and/or a job. The vast majority of the
funds are either in the forms of loans or jobs. The
deadline to be considered for all types of aid is May
1. Applications for loans must be submitted by July
1. Job requests are accepted any time.
Off-campus jobs are difficult to find, especially if
you don't have a car. Positions in the College Park
area are filled almost immediately because of the
number of students looking for jobs. Look for
openings in the Diamondback classifieds. Also check
the fast-food restaurants, like McDonald's and Lum's.
They're always looking for part-time help.
The Office of Student Aid keeps up-to-date files
on both full and part-time job openings in the area.
Most openings are either sales, restaurant, or baby-sit-
Some University departments accept applications
regardless of a student's financial need. The campus
police hire parking-ticketers, and the Office of Resi-
dent Life hires desk receptionists for the dorms.
PLACEMENT AND CREDENTIALS
Cumberland Hall Basement (Cambridge Complex),
For information on a career-oriented job, the
Placement Office is the best place to go. Placement
counselors will help you make decisions about future
The office's Career Library has reference material
on all kinds of occupational fields, graduate and
professional schools, and overseas jobs.
To locate a job in your field, take advantage of the
on-campus interviews held in the Placement Office
from late October to early April.
If you're a graduating education major, take
advantage of the interviews with both state and
out-of-state school systems as well as the Credentials
Service which sends copies of your academic record
and chosen recommendations to interested employ-
ers. Listings of vacancies in secondary schools, col-
leges, and universities, and other interest-related
positions are also kept on file.
The placement counselors are more than willing to
go out of their way to give useful information and
advice. Visit them when the need arises.
Even with money in the bank you may have
trouble getting checks cashed. Because of the fear of
checks bouncing, both the University and the College
Park stores make check cashing a difficult task. So it's
almost essential that you take out a checking account
at one of the nearby banks such as University
National (4321 Hartwick Road), Maryland National
(8406 Baltimore Boulevard) or Suburban Trust (Col-
lege Park Shopping Center).
If you don't take out a checking account, you can
cash checks in the Student Union for a 20^ service
charge. After showing your University ID card and
filling out an information form stamped on the back
of your check, you may cash personal checks up to
$20.00 and payroll checks up to $40.00. This service
is offered Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3
p.m. A word of warning: don't pass any bad checks.
You won't be able to cash a check there again.
Some College Park stores which are sympathetic to
students will cash checks with purchases. Albrecht's
Drug Store cashes checks for an additional amount at
an extra charge. The Varsity Grill cashes checks up to
$5.00. Most stores and businesses in the area stop
accepting checks toward the end of the school year
because of the possibility of students' writing bad
checks and skipping town before caught. The Student
Union check cashing service closes down too, so be
sure you have enough cash before final exams.
Once you have money you won't have any trouble
spending it. College Park is full of shops which cater
to college students. Clothing stores, record shops, and
card shops all line Route one.
College Park clothing stores include boutiques and
unisex shops, as well as more conservative clothing

On a campus as big as Maryland 's there is always a
lot of hustle and bustle, things happening, places to
go. The urge is to move. The problem is how.
"Hoofing" it might be the most immediate solution,
but it's not the only solution, and may not be the
If your stamina will hold up, you'll find a bike
ideal for on-campus and other local ventures. A bike
is inexpensive, faster than foot, good for your health,
and better for the environment. It also beats the 10
m.p.h. traffic congestion problems of busy daylight
The ever present rumors that additional bike
racks and special bike paths will never grace the
campus shouldn't get you down. People seem to be
getting along fine without them. A lock and chain is a
must if you expect to find your bike where you left
it. As an added precaution you can register your bike
with the campus police to make it more easily
traceable in case of theft. Take it over to the station,
located across from the Dairy, any weekday from
7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Another precaution — bikes
with distinctive markings are also more traceable and
therefore less likely to be stolen.
Your only other problem might be that of
permanent storage. A weather-proof location is diffi-
cult to secure, although some dorms do allow
residents to keep their bikes in the basement. It will
be a smaller headache and probably more convenient
if you resign yourself to keeping your bike chained
outside to a tree or railing. If the rain bothers you,
you can add the protection of a large plastic bag.
Bikes are subject to many of the same traffic
regulations as cars. There are also certain safety
regulations to be met: white light to the front, red
light to the rear, audible signal device, etc. While a
look around campus makes it debatable as to whether
such regulations are enforced, it would be a good idea
to contact the campus police (454-3555) to get the
scoop on specific requirements.
If you get the urge to travel to D.C. or Baltimore,
a set of wheels becomes almost a necessity. When you
achieve junior standing you can legally register a car
on campus. However, underclassmen can obtain a
special weekend pass which is good from 5 p.m.
Friday to 12 midnight Sunday. Actually, everyone,
including parents, visitors, dates, etc., drives and
parks on campus during weekends and since there is
no apparent ticketing of cars, a weekend pass seems a
total waste of money.
Since campus vehicles are registered with the
Motor Vehicle Office during class registration each
semester, be sure to bring your license and auto
registration card to registration. In the Fall, the cost
is $10 for the first vehicle and $2 for each additional
vehicle, and in the Spring the cost is $5 for the first
vehicle and $1 for each additional vehicle. You are
assigned a specific parking lot and are subject to a $5
fine if found parked in any other area. Operation of
an unregistered vehicle is subject to a minimum $15
If during the week you have to use an illegal auto
— say, to bring a load of goods from home to dorm —
post a note on the windshield stating your temporary
mission. If you slate both time of arrival and
expected time of departure and a plea not to ticket
the car, most campus cops won't ticket you if the
situation seems legit. But again, it is a matter of
taking your chances. For more specific information
on these topics, contact the campus police, the Motor
Vehicle Office (454-4242), or consult the traffic rules
section of the Consolidated Undergraduate Catalog.
If you don't have your own set of wheels, getting
rides with someone else is a possibility. A Ride Board,
located in the Student Union basement just opposite
the Cafeteria entrance, is provided by the University
Commuters' Association (UCA). Two maps, one of
Maryland and one of the entire U.S., are posted with
sign-up lists for both "ride wanted" and "rider
wanted." UCA also provides a free computerized car
pool service. If your destination is within commuting
distance, it may be helpful to contact the Commut-
ers' Association directly. UCA is located on the third
floor of the Student Union.
Buses are another mode of transportation if you
can hack the ever-rising fare increases. The D.C.
Transit buses come right through campus and may be
boarded in front of the Student Union or in the
vicinity of Turner Laboratory. Routes and schedule
information may be obtained at the main desk of the
Student Union or by phoning D.C. Transit at
The Greyhound bus line operates to and from
Washington and Baltimore and may be picked up in
College Park on Baltimore Avenue in front of the
College Park Watch Shop. For bus schedule informa-
tion, call WA 7-6800.
The door-to-door service offered by taxis is an-
other possibility if you have lots of money to spend.
Recommended in this area are Blue Bird Cabs
(864-7700), but listed in the Yellow Pages are dozens
of other companies from which to choose.
If you can get to the station, the railroad provides
an interesting change in travel. The B & faithfully
chugs both to and from Baltimore and makes a stop
in near-by Silver Spring. Phone 589-2241 for informa-
tion and reservations.
Penn Central, located near the Capital Building in
Washington, has a Capital Beltvk'ay station in Lanham,
Maryland. Phone 577-9247 for more information.
A good place to call for an overall picture of travel
opportunities and rates is the Metroliner Reservation
and Ticket Office of the International Travel Services
Corporation. Open Monday through Friday from
8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., the office provides ticketing
services for all railroads. The phone is 833-9020.
Another good place to call is Amtrak, the Intercity
Rail Passenger Service. Phone 393-001 3 for Metro-
liner reservations or 638-3100 for other Amtrak
If you're planning on taking a long trip and want
to arrive at your destination in a short time, then
flying is your best bet. Flying to and from campus is
no problem provided you have transportation to and
from the airport. Due to Maryland's proximity to
Baltimore and Washington you have a choice of three
airports: Friendship, which is north on the Balti-
more-Washington Parkway, and National and Dulles,
both of which are on the southern side of the
Potomac. However, all three airports are at least a 20
- to 40 - minute drive from campus depending on
traffic. Probably the quickest and most convenient
choice, however, would be Friendship since you don't
have to drive through Washington to get there.
Watch Diamondback ads for special group and
school sponsored tours. Most importantly, check with
the airlines for programs such as TWA's Youth Fare
If you're under 21 , or in some cases if you're a
full-time student, you may be eligible for student
discount rates. It's worthwhile to be persistent and
ask questions about reduced-fare policies such as
student stand-by. Travel agencies are another possibil-
ity for acquiring information on airline policies.
When you're out of dough and nothing else seems
available, you might just stick out your thumb and
hitch. While there are no campus restrictions regard-
ing this popular practice, there are some state
In general, it is illegal to solicit rides from any
roadway, or to stop and pick up anyone soliciting a
ride. The law is not explicit about people standing
and only "looking" like they want a ride. In this case
anyone is free to be picked up.
Although it is illegal to solicit a ride from the
roadway, it is not illegal to stand back off the road
and on the grass. Laws specifically mention that it Is
illegal to solicit rides on limited- access highways and
to stop on such highways at any time, except in
emergencies. This means you'll have to be particularly
careful if you intend to hitch along the Beltway or
Route 70S. By all means, avoid a legal bind and check
out the specific laws, since they may vary from state
to state and area to area.
Although the State Police advise that hitchhiking
is dangerous, especially for girls, following the sugges-
tions listed below will increase your chances for a safe
• Know the specific routes and turn-offs to where
• Carry a writing instrument. A large felt tip pen is
great for printing signs or making changes.
• Travel light. Excess baggage discourages prospec-
tive rides and also is a burden for you on long
journeys and in bad weather.
• First ask the driver where he's going. Don't just
hop into the car and blurt out your desired destina-
tion. While talking you'll have time to look over the
situation and decide if you really want to take the
ride. You'll also have an excuse to get out of the car
if the situation looks risky.
That's what's available. No matter how you do it,
go and enjoy yourself.
SPREADING THE WORD
The need for communication is a vital concern in
today's world. Maybe it's wanting to tell people you
have a fantastic lO-speed bike to sell, or maybe it's
the more global concern of trying to keep on top of
what's going on and where it's all happening. This
campus is big, and as a newcomer you may feel very
small, very confused, and very overwhelmed. Hang in
there. There are ways of keeping in touch
USEFUL ITEMS FOR SPREADING THE WORD
One of the easiest ways to spread the word is
posting a sign. Bulletin boards are located every-
where: dorms, buildings, and even outside. Note that
the Student Union is the focal point of the masses,
and that there the boards get a good deal of coverage.
But no matter what location you choose in posting
your information, remember to include a date; it's an
aid in letting people know that your 10-speed bike is
currently for sale, and that your sign isn't just a
forgotten leftover from the past spring.
As the focal point of student activity, the Student
Union can not only help you spread the word, but it
can also help you keep informed. Use the services of
the Student Information Center, located in Room
111 in the main lobby. Open weekdays from 10a.m.
to 4 p.m., the Center offers answers to questions
concerning any and all aspects of University life. The
Center supplies schedules of campus activities, as well
as leaflets and brochures about various student
services, academic departments, student organiza-
tions, and religious services. As a general reference
center for all University publications, the Center is
another important source of information, current
ideas, and communication.
Perhaps the most widely read University publi-
cation is the Diamondback, the daily campus news-
paper which has been publishing for more than 60
The Diamondback keeps you informed about
campus life and campus issues, as well as important
national and international events. Most issues of the
DBK post a summary of the day's campus events and
a brief listing of the following day's activities. And
don't neglect to read over the ads. Anything from the
latest sale on jeans, to movies playing on campus, to
special speakers series might be posted. The classified
ads should be remembered too. They're interesting
and informative and a great way to spread your own
news. Call 454-2351 to place your classified ad.
That the DBK continues to publish is due to the
extremely long hours of some 10 top staffers, and the
part-time efforts of some 50 to 60 writers and copy
editors. Working on the DBK is a great way to learn
newspaper journalism. No experience is necessary,
and non-journalism majors are greatly welcomed. If
you want a chance to try out your skills and your
talents, drop in Room 101 of the Journalism
A rgusi Dimension
Not to be forgotten is the student feature maga-
zine which regularly appears inside the Diamond-
back. Editorials, movie reviews, and topics of concern
all unfold from the pages of this magazine dubbed the
Argus/Dimension is an outgrowth of the contro-
versial and eventually bankrupt Argus magazine which
built a reputation of sometimes national fame with
issues such as "The 1970 Annual National Creative
Pornography Contest," "The 1971 All Amerikan
Issue" (featuring American flag decals and a pack of
matches), and last fall's "Blasphemy Issue," which
pictured a jack-in-the-box pope on the front cover.
Though less sensational, the new format depends
equally as much on creative and unique ideas in the
form of art, photography, and writing. Interested?

Calvert magazine is the University's literary publi-
cation which combines artistic quality and profes-
sional layout. Calvert is a continuing attempt to

recognition for creative students. There is always
room for staffers to read manuscripts, type stencils,

If you're a little up-tight or worried about han-
dling college coursework, or if you're wondering
exactly what your professor expects from you, then
take special note of the University publication known
as Course Guide. It can be a great help.
The Guide provides an analysis of the content,
structure, and loopholes of a large collection of
courses, and includes a summary of the hang-ups and
major idiosyncracies of many of the profs. Statistics
are collected by means of computer-tabulated ques-
tionnaires which also provide space for individual
student comments. The prof's course descriptions are
also used, so in the final analysis you're getting a
picture viewed from different angles.
It's not all statistics, and it's not just one person's
view. Course Guide is an excellent source for helping
you select your class schedules. Pick up a copy of the
Guide under the steps of Taliaferro Hall in Room 46
Boreal! 454-41 40.
Maryland's yearbook, called Us, also deserves
mention. In its second year of a totally new ap-
proach. Us is a beautiful outgrowth of the old,
traditional-style yearbook. This soft cover, artistically
designed magazine publishes three volumes, one in
January, and two in May. Us aims for top quality
photographic essays, and a selection of stories and
writings that give a feeling about the mood of the
campus as well as an account of its events.
Us is looking 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. Anyone interested should drop by as early as
possible and get involved.
For further information, visit the Us office,
located in Room 207 of the Journalism Building or
If the written word is not enough to keep you on
top of things, then turn your radio dial to 650 AM
and tune in the VVMUC, the campus radio station
heard only on the College Park campus.
VVMUC means everyday, all-day radio, run by
students and for students. This channel plays all kinds
of music. It offers in-depth coverage of major campus
events — football and basketball live, as it happens. It
offers public services no off-campus station could
match — from activity announcements to a review of
dining hall menus. Listen.
Like the other campus media, WMUC needs
people. Anyone interested and willing to work may
find a position as announcer, reporter, sportscaster,
or worker in the business, traffic, or promotions
department. At the beginning of each semester listen
for broadcast bulletins that will let you know how
you can become a part.
You'll be hearing from WMUC. Or if you need
them, let them hear from you. Call 454-2744.
D.C. AREA MEDIA
While there is campus media to serve you, there is
also plenty of D.C. media to help you expand your
There is an abundance of newspapers published in
the D.C. area. You'll find the underground media
especially good for information on coffee houses,
movies, concerts, and the like. They're also good for
special events reporting, places to eat, crazy clothes
places, and for spreading the word via the classified.
Stacked around the doors of the Student Union
are two papers which are free and offer a free ad
service. They are the Woodwind, which is an arts
paper publishing the writing, poetry, and artwork of
the D.C. community, and Good Times, which is also a
community paper covering a wide range of topics and
is generally interesting reading.
Quicl^silver Times is another paper you shouldn't
miss. It's packed with information of all kinds,
including more specific information on area media.
It also offers free classified ads.
Another publication to be checked out is the Red
Pages. This is a handbook, guide, index, and catalogue
to what's happening in the Washington free commun-
ity. Contact the office at 1724 20th Street, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20009 or phone 387-5437.

If you're interested in checking out events in the
gay community, you might look into a few of these.

feminist paper featuring letters, articles, news, poetry,
graphics, and information on women's literature.

If you're eager to see a copy or two of some of
these underground papers, you don't have to go far.
It doesn't mean a long trek to D.C. Many local places
have them available. Ag^in, check out the Student
Union. Then, try the Sixth Sense or Joint Possession
right in College Park. In nearby Silver Spring, both
Blind Alley (1306 East-West Highway) and Trends
(925 Ellsworth Drive) usually have copies in stock.
And Maggie's Farm on Columbia Road in Takoma
Park, Maryland is always a good place to go.
Not to be forgotten are the highly-rated straight
papers in D.C, the Washington Post (233-6100) and
the Washington Evening Star (484-3000). Notices are
posted at the beginning of each semester advising
about campus delivery.
For radio listening you're limited only by your
dial. Three stations which deserve special note are
WTOP (150 AM), WGTB (90.1 FM) and WHUR (96.1
FM). WTOP, non-stop news, covers in depth inter-
national, national, and local events of all kinds and
posts the time every few minutes. WGTB, the campus
station at Georgetown University, is a 24-hour non-
commercial set up and a good source for the latest on
D.C. and nearby Georgetown events. WHUR, also a
24-hour non-commercial station and operated by
Howard University students, offers a full spectrum of
black music and related events.
This is a little of what's available. If you still aren't
sure that there are ways of being informed and
keeping in touch, well then, maybe communications
have broken down. Keep looking around. The more
you look, the more you'll find. You're the one to
If you 're in trouble, or if you want to avoid it,
there is no shortage of help to be found at Maryland.
Every year there are new organizations and places to
go for help, and the old ones seldom fold . . . Help on
the draft, help for V.D. for pregnancy or how to
avoid it, help for those times of too much dope or for
when you get busted, help for when you feel down or
lonely, help when your house is burning or your
motorcycle is ripped off. Within certain limits, these
organizations will do all they can for you — that's
what they 're there for . . . don 't be afraid or embar-
rassed; helping or being helped is beautiful.
If you think you may be pregnant, wait two weeks
after the first day of your missed period when the
hormones will show up in a test. (For places which do
pregnancy testing, see listing under "Pregnancy
Tests"). If you are pregnant and want an abortion, do
not put it off. Up to 10-12 weeks, an abortion is a
relatively simple and inexpensive procedure. After 12
weeks, the procedure is more complicated and the
cost goes up.
For information on the different methods of
abortions check out the Birth Control Handbook or
any of the places which do pregnancy testing. After
performing an abortion, most clinics will provide
birth control counseling. See listing for "Contracep-

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 assistance, volunteers
can refer you to the best in the community. 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 sensitivity sessions as well as up-to-date
information from professional 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, request for
abortion information, draft counseling, homo-
sexuality and suicide 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 community,

YOU AND THE POLICE
The police work for YOU as a citizen of this
community, whatever your age, your race, or
your job. The police must respect your rights; it
will help if you respect their job.
IF YOU ARE QUESTIONED BY A POLICEMAN
1. Give your name and address or show an
i.d. Remember that anything else you say will
be used against you; it is not a crime to refuse
to answer a policeman's further questions.
2. Ask if you are under arrest. If so, you
have the right to know the charge against you.
3. The police may search you for concealed
weapons by patting your clothing. Do not
physically resist. Make it clear that you do not
agree to any search of yourself, your car, or
IF YOU ARE ARRESTED OR HELD
1. Never run away, strike an officer, or

guilty. Go with the officer; you can make your
defense in court.
2. You have the right to remain silent; use
it. Tell the police nothing except your name
and address. Don't give explanations or stories
or try to excuse your conduct. Don't engage in
3. Ask to see a lawyer immediately. If you
can't pay for a lawyer, you have the right to
free legal service. Ask the police to get you a
lawyer. Don't talk to officials unless your
lawyer is with you.
4. You can protect your right against unlaw-
ful search by making it clear that you do not
agree to any search. Do not physically resist. If
the police say that they have a warrant, ask to
5. After arrest, use your right to make two
telephone calls,* one to arrange bail,* one to a
relative, friend or attorney. Sometimes you can
be released without bail ("O.R.") or have bail
lowered. Ask the judge about it. You have the
right to go into court the next court day after

until you have talked to a lawyer and under-
stand what your choices are.

telephone calls. Ask to see a lawyer and follow
the advice given above.

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
required academic grade point average for transfer to
their proposed college without undue loss of time.

VICE CHANCELLOR FOR STUDENT AFFAIRS
Dr. Daniel L. Bratlon, Vice Chancellor tor Student
Affairs, 210 North Administration Building, Ext.
The Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs admin-
isters the division of the University responsible for
the programs, services, and activities which com-
plement and support the student's formal academic
experience. Through the Office of the Vice Chancel-
lor, the Division of Student Affairs attempts to speak
to the social, physical, emotional and general learning
needs of each student.
Syphilis and gonorrhea are infections spread pri-
marily through sexual intercourse. If there is a chance
you may have V.D., check it out. V.D. can be cured
relatively easily if treated early. A few important
facts to know are: You can have V.D. without having
the symptoms . . . V.D. can be acquired over and over
again . . . V.D. endangers not only the infected
person, but all those with whom that person has
intimate contact . . . V.D. can be cured if it is treated
If you think you have V.D., contact all those
you've been in close contact with because while the
symptoms may either be non-existent or have dis-
appeared, you may still have V.D. and transmit it
unknowingly. For treatment go to the nearest health
department or free clinic. You'll have a blood test for
syphilis and discharge checked for gonorrhea. Treat-
ment for both is an antibiotic usually given in the
form of pills.
• Health Center, Campus Drive, Ext. 3444
Doctors can test and treat you for V.D. They have
literature on V.D. and will answer any questions.
Again, there may be a wait to see a doctor.
• Prince Georges County Health Department, Chev-
erly, Maryland, 773-1400
Open: Weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
These people are extremely helpful. They'll see
you right away and will answer any questions. The
service is free. They are also good about explaining
what you have and how they are treating it.
Surrounding the campus, be it walking distance
away or in the District of Columbia, you have a great
choice of places to relax, play, and hide from school
The nearest park is the Duck Pond, situated on
University Boulevard within ten minutes walking
distance of the campus. This small but cozy park
offers tennis and basketball courts, picnic tables, and
fireplaces. The pond, which is the center of at-
traction, is ideal for fishing when the weather is warm
and ice-skating during the winter.
If you dig sand, sunshine, and fresh air, then visit
the beaches closest to campus. Ocean City, located on
the Atlantic coastline in Maryland, is about a three-
hour trip, but well worth the time and trouble. Up
the coast into the state of Delaware is Rehobeth
Beach, smaller but similar to Ocean City. This trip
will take you about a half hour less but is slightly
more expensive. Virginia Beach is about a four hour
If parks are your thing, you have a variety of
places to choose from. A nearby park is the Adelphi
Mill on Riggs Road. Like most resort areas near the
University, this park is equipped with all the picnic
essentials. Two other nearby parks to enjoy are
Magruder Park and the Greenbelt Park in Hyattsville.
West of Rockville, Maryland, is the Cabin John
Regional Park, a 500 acre park which is open only to
county residents. Phone )U 9-1480 for a camping
permit. Wheaton Regional Park, also open only to
county residents, is ideal for activities ranging from
picnicking to hiking to horseback riding. Phone
589-1 480 for a camping permit.
If you decide to do group camping, both the
Seneca Camping Area and the Carderock Recrea-
tiona'Area are open to you. Seneca may be reached
via River Road, 9 miles from Potomac, then left on
Riley's Lock Road. Carderock may be reached via
the Beltway, Exit 15, then one mile west on
About 18 miles from D.C. in Clinton, Maryland, is
the Cosco Regional Park. Offered here are tent
camping facilities including tables, grills, water, and
toilets. Phone 277-2200 for a permit.
At least one of your afternoons should be devoted
to a trip through Virginia's scenic Skyline Drive. The
drive begins about one hour from the Maryland
campus and takes one to two hours once you're in

Nightclub Entertainment Spots
Georgetown, the most popular student section of
D.C, is an entertainment center hosting at least 20
bars in just a three-block area. Some of the more
popular bars and restaurants which are listed below
were reviewed by Bernadette Savard in Vol. 1, No. 4
of Good Times.
Clyde's - 3236 "M" Street, N.W., 333-9690. Clyde's
bills itself as "an American bar" and offers a choice
of atmospheres to its guests. One room is decorated
in an old-time bar atmosphere, complete with a long,
wooden counter and a wall lined with liquor bottles
of just about every imaginable brand. The other main
room carries on the old-time bar theme, but spot-
lights live entertainment on the folk and rock line.
Clyde's offers a dinner and late-night menu, special-
izing in traditional sandwiches. Sunday brunch at
Clyde's is a must and shouldn't be missed. Prices are
reasonable; service is usually excellent.
Apple Pie - 3350 "M" Street, N.W., 333-381 1 . Apple
Pie features food, drink and music on a main-floor/
balcony setting. The stereo system is fantastic,
although people sitting in the balcony are sometimes
overwhelmed by the sound. Apple Pie's bar also
sports a wide assortment of brand name liquors
displayed behind the bar area. Food is good, but
somewhat overpriced. Service is reasonably efficient.
Third Edition — 1218 Wisconsin Avenue, N.W.,
333-3700. Third Edition was this year's hang-out for
the college crowd. The food is nothing spectacular
and a bit over-priced. The bar area is generally
over-crowded, but there always seems to be room for
just a few more people. Bartenders are efficient and
the drinks are priced competitively for the George-
Mr. Henry's - 1225 Wisconsin Avenue, N.W.,
337-4334. Mr. Henry's drawing card is live entertain-
ment, varying from a pianist-singer to a rock group.
The fare is limited, but good and reasonably priced.
The service is sometimes inefficient. The atmosphere
makes the evening, particularly the authentic-looking
antique curiosities displayed on the walls. Although
the tables generally seat more than one party, the
evening is helped by the proximity, particularly when
a sing-along begins. The crowd seems to be geared to
the young 20's, rather than the college-age bar-
East India Sporting Club - 2915 "M" Street, N.W.,
965-2350. The only thing 'sporting' about the East
India is the traditional boy-meets-girl routine. Strictly
a bar and dance place, the East India is a good place
to pick up or be picked up for a date. The drinks tend
to be expensive and the bartenders have a heavy hand
with the liquor. Although the dance floor is min-
iscule, the atmosphere in that area is unique. Mirrors
make the room seem several times larger and the use
of plush couches along the sides adds to the setting.
Plan to stand and chat, because tables or couches are
at a premium.
Nathan's - 3150 "M" Street, N.W., 338-2000. Bar
and limited menu, appeals mostly to young 20's
crowd. Drinks are expensive and the food is only fair.
Chadwick's - 3205 "K" Street, N.W., 333-2565.
Once the favorite of the college bar-hoppers, Chad-
Vk'ick's has lost popularity in favor of the Third
Edition. Chadwick's also offers food, drink and
canned music as does the Third, but its location on
"K" Street is less convenient than the Third's
Wisconsin Avenue location. The bar at Chadwick's is
considerably bigger than the Third's, but that still is
not saying much. Food is reasonably good and
Publick House - 3218 "M" Street, N.W., 333-6605.
Although Publick House is a restaurant, its recent
opening deserves some mention. The food is good and
not over-priced, service is also efficient. The Publick
House is encouraging the college-age business by its
10^ beer policy, namely that all beers are 10^
between 5 and 8 p.m. with every meal purchased.
Something like Emerson's all-the-salad/all-the-
The Bayou - 3135 "K" Street, N.W., FE 3-2897. If
you want an evening of good dancing, try the Bayou.
Harding's Cloakroom 3288 "M" Street, N.W.,
965-1473. Harding's Cloakroom is a sparsely-popu-
lated nightspot in Georgetown during the regular
evening hours. Because of its very late closing time of
3:30 a.m., however, Harding's attracts its clientele
from those who close down most of the other area
bars. The menu is limited to breakfast food (eggs and
such) or pizza, but is reasonably priced. Liquor is also
reasonably priced, but the table-area is much larger
by far than the bar. The service is smooth and
efficient, but beware of the over-eager waiter with the
coffee pot in hand. At 50^ a cup, it's easy to run up a
bill of $4 for two people for coffee alone.
Blues Alley - 1073 Wisconsin Avenue, N.W.,
337-4141. Good Blues music.
Brickskeller - 1523 22nd Street, N.W., 293-1885.
Good music, good people.
Cellar Door - 34th and M Streets, N.W. 337-3389.
Well known popular music. Call for information and
The Keg - 2205 Wisconsin Avenue, N.W., 339-9594.
Friendly people, good music.
My Mother's Place - 18th and M Streets, N.W.,
269-0706. Nice Place, slightly more expensive. $3 on
Sunday for all the beef and beer you want.

10. A student on the varsity, "B", or freshman
squad who drops or is dropped from the squad is not

fact, you may organize your own team and this is
encouraged. Be sure to get men on your team who are
interested enough to show up when the games are

Women's Recreation Association, Women's Physical
Education Department, Preinkert Fieldhouse, Ext.
The Women's Recreation Association is a student
organization which plans and sponsors many recrea-
tional sports activities. It is designed to meet your
interests and is dedicated to making your college
years more enjoyable.
On a large campus it is sometimes difficult to find
new friends, an outside interest, a sense of belonging,
an identity with a group or organization. Even though
WRA is large in terms of membership, numbers of
activities and participation, its division into teams,
clubs and smaller groups and its many special projects
give each interested woman a chance to meet, to play
and to work with others.
Membership is automatic, there are no dues, and
participation, whether sports or leadership, is volun-
tary. WRA is for the highly skilled and the non-
skilled, the Greek and the independent, the com-
muter and campus resident, the math major, art
major, any major, and some of its activities are co-ed.
WRA Schedule for intramurals, interest groups and
Fall ~ Bowling, tennis singles, badminton doubles,
swimming marathon. Hockey team, judo, horseback
riding, volleyball team. Aqualiners, fencing.
Winter — Swimming meet, basketball, badminton
sihgles. Swimming team, basketball team, ice skating,
self-defense. Aqualiners, fencing.
Spring — Volleyball, tennis doubles, ping pong. Tennis
team, lacrosse team, horseback riding, self-defense.
Intramural tournaments are arranged on an organ-
izational level; you play for your dormitory, sorority
or the Daydodgers. Your WRA Representative, in
dorm or sorority meetings, will keep you informed of
the team and individual sport schedules.
Since the Daydodgers have a more difficult time
seeing each other, their Representative will call a
meeting before each team sport tournament to get
organized. Individual sports enthusiasts may obtain
entry blanks either from their WRA Representative or
the WRA office in Preinkert Field House. That is all,
and you will be notified when to play.
Dress for intramurals is casual. However, tennis
shoes in the gym and bowling shoes at the alleys are
always worn. Equipment for practice or individual
activity may be checked out from Preinkert Field
House Monday through Friday from 4 to 5:15 p.m.
The swimming pool in Preinkert is open from 4 to
5:15 on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
afternoons and on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8.
Co-recreational swimming is held at Cole Activities
Building on Friday nights from 7:30 to 9:30 and on
Sundays from 2 to 5:30 and 7 to 9 p.m. Bring self,
cap, towel and bathing suit.
Perhaps most important in WRA is the fact that
you do not have to be an expert to take part. Though
rotating trophies are awarded to winning teams at the
annual Spring Banquet, the emphasis of the intra-
mural program is on fun and the participation of
everyone — not on winning and the participation of
only the more highly skilled. In fact, this past year,
WRA instigated "Party Leagues" in volleyball and
basketball for those who wanted to be less serious
about the final score. Rules, except those involving
safety, were much more lenient than in the "Com-
WRA Interest Groups and Teams
Six intercollegiate teams represent Maryland in a
regular schedule of games and matches with other
colleges and universities - Hockey, Swimming, Bas-
ketball, Lacrosse, Tennis and Volleyball. Though
officially coming under the Athletic Department last
fall, especially in regards to finance, the teams will
continue to be closely affiliated with WRA. The
teams practice four or five afternoons a week and
enjoy well-played, hard-fought contests, an excellent
record of performance and all the benefits derived
from good competition with other college women.
Very capable coaches are the biggest asset.
The other groups — Horseback Riding, Ice Skating
and Self Defense (Judo) — meet about once a week,
are more "club-like" and appeal to those who prefer a
more casual atmosphere.
Membership in an Interest Group or Team is open
to any co-ed who is interested, and beginners are as
welcome as the more experienced. Many novices have
made the first team by "sticking to it." All equip-
ment is provided. Try to keep your 4 o'clock hours
Watch for announcements of meetings and prac-
tices in the Diamondback or keep in touch with your
WRA Representative and then just come. At least one
of these activities will hold some exciting moments

venture is co-hosting the Christmas Invitational Fen-
cing Meet with the Washington Fencing Club. This
event brings to campus some of the best fencers in
the East including some Olympic participants.

women who wish to serve the Air Force, the
University, and the community. Although sponsored
by the Arnold Air Society which is a men's honorary

won't see a pool again until the following year, then
join Aqualiners. It's a great way to stay wet, have fun,
and keep in shape.

sary. Aqualiners teaches you everything you need to
know. Fall semester you meet once a week to learn
and practice skills, while Spring semester you prepare
routines for the annual show. The show given each

props, lighting and costumes. In addition, Aqualiners

offers an easily accessible alternative. Although ad-
vertised as a gay function, these Friday night
gatherings are open to the entire University com-
munity, as are club membership and all G.S.A. events

and non-gay people. Lectures, symposia, leaf-letting
campaigns and consciousness-raising groups are aimed

being gay, and the oppression of being gay.

fight people and institutions oppressing and dis-
criminating against gay people.

The goal of the many practices, in which each of
the members participate, is the formation of a
sixteen-man drill team. It will represent the Uni-
versity in drill meets at many of the large eastern

events as the Cherry Blossom and Dogwood Festivals.
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 fluoridators. 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 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 Bur-
gundians, Clantarf, and other minor colossal blunders
of military history.
For those of a less civilized mind the Militia also
has a Renaissance dance and music section special-
izing in those lascivious specialities of that delight-
fully decadent age.
All good, bad, or mediocre warriors and wenches
are invited to join this beloved, wholesome, funloving
PACE (People Active in Community Effort) is the
student administered organization which coordinates
community involvement 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 community, and that classroom
education is enhanced by involvement, PACE pro-
vides a broad range of opportunities for the commit-
ted, activist student.
Education, mental health, physical health, and
community action are the four areas of activity
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
Mental Health. Opportunities for work within the
mental health area include involvement with de-
linquents, 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 relation-
An Emergency Service Corps is part of the
community action area. The Corps is composed of
students who cannot contribute their time on a
regular basis, but who can work in the community
vktien 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 encouraged 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 or
Director of Community Service Programs, Mr. Harry
Walker, 454-2827, for further information.
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 meetings.
Club members often gather in the Student Union
for evening program, 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
organization trying to obtain rightful responsibilities
for all students living on campus. This group has
initiated the institution of such things as the coeduca-
tional residence halls, visitation hours, and many
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.
To operate as a truly representative organization,
the Residence Halls Association must have the sup-
port of all resident students.
It has been stated that the object of the University
is to "open minds so that they may discover new
worlds." There is perhaps no other sport that offers a
more challenging and stimulating workout for your
brain and nervous system, than the space age sport of
skydiving. One is continually perceiving information
through all the senses.
The purpose of the Skydiver's Club is to train men
and women in the rules and knowledge of parachut-
ing with a major emphasis on safety. For a minimal
fee you receive a comprehensive course in parachut-
ing, free use of club equipment, and the chance to
compete in collegiate, national, and international
Once involved in the social life of the club, you
discover that you have a unique perspective on life.
Once off your first few static-line jumps, you may
qualify for the free-fall course. This offers the
mastering of the elements. Imagine yourself leaving
an aircraft at 12,500 feet and free-falling for two
miles and then opening your chute to feel the ecstatic
sense of flying your canopy.
The Skydiver's Club is open to those who want to
feel the greatest of all experiences: beating gravity
and being all alone through the vast expanse of our
atmosphere. The sky is the limit! Take the golden
opportunity of a lifetime. It may turn out to be your

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION
The Student Government Association at the Uni-
versity 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 improve-
ment in every area and strive to protect the rights of
The opportunities in this realm of service are
endless, but the fate of the University and the success
of the plan demand involvement and commitment.
SGA hopes that somewhere within its myriad com-
mittees you can find something for your present and
for your future.
The structure of SGA is as follows:

Since television is normal, its advocates must
become very abnormal. The Television Workshop
offers a bewildering variety of cameras, lights, micro-
phones and videotapes to the right person who wishes
to do something, say something, accomplish some-
thing 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 generation 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 lumber-
ing 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 tele-
vision into a creatively honest image of the future.
Too many people treat television like the toaster —
The Television Workshop treats it like a weapon.

TERRAPIN SKI CLUB
Terrapin Ski Club offers an excellent opportunity
to further your skiing skills. Films, lectures, and
demonstrations on skiing techniques and equipment
arc presented at the meetings.
During the Christmas and Easter breaks, trips are
taken to such places as Canada, Vermont, and Maine.
On weekends, shorter trips are taken to nearby ski
To fit student budgets, trips are offered at reduced
rates for members.
TERRAPIN TRAIL CLUB
The Terrapin Trail Club is an escapist organization
having no political, cultural, religious, or social
affiliations, outside of itself. 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.
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 meetings 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 Mountain Hike. More often, they
are small, 4 to 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 Sugarloaf, 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
UNDERWATER DIVING TERRAPINS
Underwater Diving Terrapins (Scuba Club) is an
organization 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 Instructors.
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
The Club meets every two weeks throughout the
year, and the meetings 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 of-
Yearly dues are modest ($5) and other expenses
(air refills, etc.) are reduced.
Working together to prepare performances of great
choral music, chorus members have a unique oppor-

UNIVERSITY COMMUTERS' ASSOCIATION
The University Commuters' Association occupies a
unique position in the structure of the University as
the official undergraduate student organization which
represents the commuters' interest to SGA and the
Administration. UCA has an additional obligation of
providing social, athletic and academic programs for
Commuters have problems, problems different
from those faced by students living on campus.
On-campus students have the advantages of a continu-
ing academic atmosphere, a small reference group to
which to relate (such as a fraternity house or a
residence hall) and close access to University facili-
ties. The commuter has none of these advantages.
Too often the commuters' day is a frantic rush with
the frustrations of overfilled parking lots and late
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 promote the
commuter's academic and social development. UCA
has finished construction on a People's Park, located
behind Lot 2, which provides students the oppor-
tunity "to get away from all the world's pressures."
Other programs include a free Computerized Car
Pool Service at the beginning of each semester and an
Exam Center in the Student Union at the end of each
semester. At present UCA is working with the
Administration to provide study and lounge facilities
in academic buildings, a 24-iiour Student Union and a
by-the-night dormitory for commuters.
In addition to these programs an extensive social
calendar is planned which includes dances, concerts,
GIGIFS, car rallies, hay and boat rides, etc. Finally,
UCA has many ex-officio seats on the councils of
This year Dr. Mark Hardwick has been appointed
Director of Commuter Affairs. With the creation of
this nevk* position, students and the Administration
will be working together to solve such problems as
traffic congestion, inadequate parking, and insuffi-
cient lighting in the parking lots.
Opportunities to participate in UCA activities are
open to all. Visit the UCA office in the Student
Union to find out how you can become involved.
UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND
COLLEGE REPUBLICAN CLUB
The University of Maryland Republicans are pre-
paring for the coming elections. If you're interested
in becoming involved in the campaign, you can find
no better organization than the C.R.'s.
This year C.R.'s will participate in both the
national and local races. One major responsibility is
to bring information about Republican candidates to
the University Community. This fall, activities in-
clude campaigning in the local area and managing a
local precinct. For anyone interested in grass-roots
politics, this experience should be educational and
The club offers many other opportunities: regular
trips to the Capitol to meet with Senators Beall,
Mathias, and others, the annual Young Republican
National Leadership Conference, the state and region-
al CR conventions, person-to-person meetings with
leaders in all levels of government, experience in
political debate, providing research back-up for
elected officials, participating in the inner workings
of the Republican Party on the national, state, and
county level, competing in athletic contests with rival
groups, and having good times at social functions.
The C.R.'s hold regular monthly meetings, but
there are activities and projects going on all the time.
Most importantly, the Republican Club is large
enough and varied enough in interests and ideology to
be a valuable experience to anyone interested in
government, politics, or just good times.

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND RUGBY CLUB
The University of Maryland 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.
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
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 Thursday 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
UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND VETERANS CLUB
The Veterans Club stresses three areas as its
essence: a) Social; b) Educational; c) Recreational.
Social — Realizing the unique position of the
veterans as he or she returns to civilian life within the
academic arena, and having experienced the situations
involved in this adjustment themselves, the members
of this organization provide a forum for exchanging
and sharing experiences. This idea of a forum covers
the range from impromptu rap sessions to the
development of new friendships, to even securing
Additionally, the club sponsors picnics, parties,
and numerous happy hours to round out the social
end of things.
Educational — 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 education benefits.
Recreational — 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, fish-
ing, hunting, camping, and sailing.
The Veterans Club is not a military outfit, but
rather students with a wide range of interests brought
together by a common experience.
VI DA, which is the Spanish word for life, is an
organization concerning itself with the national pro-
life movement. Operating on the belief that life has
become alien to American society, VIDA provides
members with information on such issues as abortion
alternatives and the problems of unwanted life.
VIDA is also a political organization striving to
effect positive legislation for the right to life.
The Women's Liberation Movement is a nation-
wide 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 information 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 revolutionary change

mobilizing women to fight for a humane society — a
society which recognizes the importance of Women's
freedom as well as the freedom of all people, which

Through their involvement. Women's Liberation
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,

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

People. That's the key word. People listen to radio
and more than three-fourths of the residents of the
University listen to WMUC. WMUC, 650 AM, is the
everyday, all-day 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
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, en-
gineers and workers in the business, traffic, and

YOUNG AMERICANS FOR FREEDOM
Young Americans for Freedom aim to educate
students in the principles of conservation and liber-
tarian philosophy and to direct political actions
toward that orientation.
The Young Democrats is a growing, thriving, and
active campus organization. Because of close proxim-
ity to the nation's Capitol, the club invites well-
known speakers to come and discuss issues of
concern, such as the war, race relations, and the
Many members travel to the state Capitol in
Annapolis to lobby before the state legislature con-
cerning bills affecting student life. During the local,
state and national elections, members assist 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
sponsor social events ranging from picnics to home
If you would like to make Young Democrats an
even stronger force in county, state, and national
politics, watch for announcements and attend one of
the 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. Because of the 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
ZPG members are strong advocates of birth con-
trol and the teaching and use of birth control to limit
population. The population bomb is everybody's
baby, they say.
