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 
more homey. 

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 Living 

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 
Maryland laws. 

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 
extra lamps. 

• 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 

• lamps 

• stereo 

• television 

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.

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 
dining halls. 

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

the same. Following is a list of fast food carry-out

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:

during the week and only a dollar on weekends. Good

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 
living away from home. After paying for tuition, 
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- 
ting jobs. 

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. 


Cumberland Hall Basement (Cambridge Complex), 
Ext. 2813 

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 
career plans. 

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.

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 
you're going. 

• 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. 




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 


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 
ArgusI Dimension. 

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? 
Contact the Diamondback for more information. 


Calvert magazine is the University's literary publi- 
cation which combines artistic quality and profes- 
sional layout. Calvert is a continuing attempt to 
present the University community with the output of 
its most talented writers, poets, photographers, and 

Calvert 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 


Course Guide 

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 
call 454-2230. 


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. 


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. 

Off Our Baciis is of interest to women keeping up 
with the Movement happenings. It's a women's news 
journal published about women, for women, by 
women. Reach the office by phone at 293-2271, or 
write Room 1013, 1346 Connecticut Avenue, N.W. 
Washington, D.C. 

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

The Furies - Goddesses of Vengeance is a lesbian- 


feminist paper featuring letters, articles, news, poetry, 
graphics, and information on women's literature. 
Write 219 11th Street, S.E. Washington, D.C. for 
subscription information. 

Breadbox is a gay street people's and worker's 
magazine. Write 1861 California Street, N.W. Wash- 
ington, D.C, or leave a message at 387-5800. 

Gay Blade is a monthly gay news sheet published 
for the D.C. area. The address is 232 North Fillmore 
Street, Arlington, Virginia 22201. 

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-

In the past, each student was assigned a faculty 
advisor, whose job it was to aid the student in 
designing a program of study and to place an official 
signature on certain registration forms. With new 
methods of registration, an advisor's signature is no 
longer needed. If you feel you would like or need 
assistance, see your college dean or the head of your 
department. Also helpful is talking to another student 
who has been in your department.

Cambridge "D" Lobby, Ext. 4357. Open 24 hours a 
day, 7 days a week 

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, 
who has the expertise to deal properly with your

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 leadership for 
the overall program by advising and directing the 
efforts of students, faculty, and administration in 
disciplinary concerns. 

Specifically their main functions are: 

• Processing reports and correspondence which deal 
with disciplinary matters. 

• Interviewing and counseling students involved in 
disciplinary situations. 

• Scheduling and coordinating the activities of the 
various judicial boards. 

• Reviewing and/or approving the recommendations 
of these boards, and 

• Maintaining a central file of student disciplinary 

The student judicial boards which function under 
the jurisdiction of the Judiciary Office are the 

• Central Student Judicial Board - handles Student 
Government Association cases and cases involving 

violations of University regulations by campus stu- 
dent organizations. 

• Campus Judicial Board - handles cases involving 
violations of University regulations by individuals or 
groups of individuals. 

• Student Traffic Board - handles cases involving 
violations of campus traffic and parking regulations 
or misuse of automobiles and other vehicles on the 
University campus. 

• Traffic Appeals Board — a sub-division of the 
Student Traffic Board which specifically handles 
traffic ticket appeals. 

• Residence Hall Area Judicial Boards - handle most 
cases involving violations of University regulations 
committed by individual residents or groups of 
residents in the residence areas. 

In addition, the Judiciary Office lends assistance 
to and promotes intercommunications 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.

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. 


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 
your surroundings. 


1. Never run away, strike an officer, or 
physically resist, whether you are innocent 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 
"friendly" conversation. 

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 
see it. 

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 
your arrest. 

6. Don't make any desicions in your case 
until you have talked to a lawyer and under- 
stand what your choices are. 

* Juveniles (under 18) may be denied bail or 
telephone calls. Ask to see a lawyer and follow 
the advice given above. 

This is not complete advice.

Liberties Union of Northern California.

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

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 
early enough. 

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 
Memorial Parkway. 

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 

For more information about nearby parks, call

3-2696. Fine flicks, occasionally some Beatles'

galleries in this area.

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- 
town area. 

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 
competitively priced. 

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- 
beer/all-the-bread deal. 

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. 

Other Clubs 

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. 

Other Places To Go 

Beltsville Agricultural Experimental Center - Up 

Route 1. A weird place with some weird stuff. It's 
worth the trip to see it. 

C & O Canal - You can pick it up in Georgetown. 
Fletcher's Boats - Rent a canoe and see the Potomac. 
Earth Works - 1724 20th Street, N.W., 387-6688. 
They handle "crafted goods." Buy or sell or just 
browse around. They do have some nice things. 

Georgetown Area - Many shops to browse around. 
You can spend an entire day just checking them out. 

Groove Tube - 1632 O Street, N.W., 387-7771. As 
they say, "See what TV would be like without 
censorship." Closed circuit - anything goes, TV. 

National Airport - Go at night and dig on the lights. 
Or go in the day. Pick up on the "page" phones and 
page yourself. 

National Cathedral - Wisconsin Avenue & Cathedral. 
A must if you are into architecture, churches, 
stained-glass, catacombs, woodwork, walking, seeing, 

National Geographic Explorer's Hall 1 7th and M 
Streets, N.W., 296-7500. Open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
If you dig photography, this place is really a trip.

265-1868. Plan for an all day trip.

University. Fine art and far-out architecture.

Office of Intramural Director, Coach Nick Kovala- 
kides, 1 20 Armory, Ext. 31 24.

uate students of the University (College Park campus) 
are eligible to compete in the Intramural Program, 
except as provided by the following rules: 

2. No student may play on more than one team in 
the same sport. His first participation with an 
organization or team in a sport definitely limits him 
to membership on that particular team throughout 
the sport season. 

3. An organization may be represented by mem- 
bers and pledges of that organization only. 

4. Each organization or independent group shall 
file an eligibility list with the Intramural Department 
before the start of the season in which it competes. 
Additions may be made at any time, except that no 
team may add players after its final regularly sched- 
uled game has been played. 

5. The Intramural Department does not assume 
responsibility for the eligibility of players, but will 
assist organization managers and individuals with 
their problems of eligibility and interpretation of 

6. Team Captains and/or Team Managers will be 
held directly responsible for the eligibility of their 
players during the game. 

7. Dormitory teams will be limited to no more 
than two varsity lettermen on any one team in any 
one sport. However, players who begin that season or 
who play at least one game before lettering, may 
complete that season. 

8. Students who have won a varsity letter from 
any accredited college or university may not compete 
in the sport in which they have won a letter. This 
excludes those who won freshman letters in football 
or basketball at schools where freshmen are ineligible 
for a varsity letter. 

9. Members of varsity, "B" or freshman squads 
are not eligible to compete in that sport or its 
associate sport (e.g. touch football is considered an 
associate of football, softball an associate of baseball, 
foul shooting an associate of basketball, and cross 
country an associate of track). 

10. A student on the varsity, "B", or freshman 
squad who drops or is dropped from the squad is not 
eligible in that sport or its associate sport during that 


school year unless official separation (as designated 
by the head coach) from the team occurred 30 
calendar days or less after the date that practice 
officially started (as designated by the head coach). 

11. A student who has broken amateur athletic 
regulations by virtue of a signed "professional" 
contract or by any other means must limit his 
participation to the following activities: open cross 
country, horseshoes, tennis, open bowling, weight 
lifting, badminton, table tennis, foul shooting, and 
open golf.

will be receiving any form of financial assistance 
through intercollegiate athletics is not eligible to 
compete in his sport or its associate sport. 

13. The first and second years at a junior college 
will be treated the same as the freshman and 
sophomore years at a four-year institution. 


Any infraction of the above named eligibility rules 
will result in the automatic suspension of the indiv- 
idual or individuals involved, to include the Team 
Captain and/or Team Manager, for a period of one 
year from participating in the intramural program and 
the forfeiture of all games won by the team or teams 
using the ineligible players. 


If you're interested in participating in individual 
sports, such as tennis, bowling, table tennis, golf, etc., 
submit an entry blank before posted deadlines. 
Blanks may be obtained from the Office of the 
Intramural Director. 


If you're interested in participating in Team 
Sports, you may do so by joining any group planning 
to enter a team in that sport, such as a dormitory 
team, fraternity team, or any independent group. In 
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 

It is well to remember that when your organiza- 
tion does not field a full team, you and all others 
present and ready to play miss the opportunity to do 


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 
affiliated clubs: 

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. 
Aqualiners, fencing. 

WRA Intramurals 

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- 
petitive League". 

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 
for you.

Affiliated Clubs 

Two clubs, open to both men and women, are 
affiliated with WRA - Aqualiners and Fencing. Both 
add significant variety to the overall program. 


If you are a fairly strong swimmer with good form 

and can learn new skills quickly, Aqualiners, Mary- 
land's synchronized swimming club, has a place for 
you. Tryouts are held early fall semester; watch for 
the announcement of dates. 

The club practices every Tuesday night in the 
Preinkert Pool polishing strokes, learning new stunts 
and putting together the big water pageant presented 
in the spring. The members are responsible for the 
choreography and the designing and construction of 
scenery and costumes. 

Fencing Club 

The Fencing Club is co-ed and open to all 
regardless of previous knowledge. Some of the more 
experienced fencers compete informally with men 
and women from other colleges. The group's biggest 
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. 

Equipment and instruction are provided. The club 
will meet several afternoons a week at 4; watch for 
announcements of the location. Your interest is 
needed — perhaps you have hidden talents! 




One way to involve yourself in extra-curricular 
activities at Maryland is to join any of the over 250 
student organizations on campus. To give you some 
sense of what it means to be a member of an 
organization, following are descriptions of some 
campus groups. 

If a particular group seems of interest to you, 
contact the organization's president or faculty ad- 
visor. The Office of Student Development, located in 
the Student Union, annually publishes a directory of 
student organizations indicating group presidents and 
advisors. Phone 454-2827 for further information. 


Alpha Phi Omega, the men's national service 
fraternity, directs projects ranging from the Co-ed 
Escort Service to the Used Bookstore. In the Spring, 
APO sponsors the traditional Ugly Man on Campus 
Contest which In the past four years has raised over 
$100,000 for charities. New projects include the P.G. 
County Hotline and the D.C. Runaway House. 

If interested in Alpha Phi Omega, call 454-3029 or 
779-6857, or stop by the basement of Calvert E 


Angel Flight is an honorary organization of college 
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 
within ROTC, Angel Flight is a civilian organization. 
There are many misconceptions about Angel Flight: 

• They are not Air Force Cadets. 

• They are not stewardesses in training. 

• They do not carry guns. 

• They are not all sorority girls. 

• They're not war mongers, hawks, or fascist pigs. 
Angel Flight members serve the University as 

official hostesses. They usher at football and basket- 
ball games. They serve the community by parti- 
cipation in special projects such as visiting soldiers at 
Walter Reed Hospital, collecting money on road- 
blocks for the American Cancer Society and de- 
livering toys to children at Christmas time. 

Any University co-ed with a 2.2 average, a desire 
to meet and interact with people, and a willingness to 
serve her country. University and community is 
welcome and invited to rush Angel Flight. 


If you hate to see the summer end because you 
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. 

No experience in synchronized swimming is neces- 
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 
Spring in the Cole Fieldhouse pool, is complete with 
props, lighting and costumes. In addition, Aqualiners 
perform for other special occasions and participate in 
regional synchronized swimming conferences. 

If you'd like to become an Aqualiner, practice for 
the tryouts. Announcements of dates and times are 
made through WMUC, the Diamondback, and posters 
around campus. 


The Arnold Air Society, professional organization 
of AFROTC cadets, promotes the interests and ideals 
of the United States Air Force. Through the develop- 
ment of their leadership qualities, members are 
prepared for the positions of command which they 
will assume in the Air Force. Each semester, second 
semester freshmen through seniors rush the society 
and are welcomed into a six-week pledge program. 

The members of Arnold Air Society sponsor the 
ROTC military ball and the Angel Flight - Arnold 
Air Force football game, as well as engage in 
community service projects such as aiding the Salva- 
tion Army in food drives and helping distribute 
Christmas gifts to welfare recipients. 


The Baha'i Club serves as a channel through which 
the principles of Baha'u'llah, ihe prophet — founder 
of the Baha'i Faith, can touch the University Com- 
munity. Through the club, members hope to spread 
Baha'u'llah's teaching of the oneness of God, the 
oneness of religion, and the oneness of mankind. 

"Ye are the fruits of one tree and leaves of one 
branch. Deal ye one another with utmost love and 
harmony. So powerful is the light of unity that it can 
illumine the whole earth." 

The club is open to all. Meetings are held every 
Thursday night just off campus. 




The Black Student Union strives to meet the needs 
of black students on campus. The BSU offers black 
students opportunities to continue self-development 
as a black person and to give service to the black 

Projects include Nyumburu activities, Lakeland 
Community Project, and the Black Explosion nevi's- 
paper. BSU also provides academic tutoring, social 
activities and financial aid in conjunction with the 
Office of Intensive Educational Development.

A man is to be inducted in a week; he comes to 
you for help. A high school student has questions 
about the lottery or student deferment; he asks you. 
A conscientious objector discusses his inability to 
participate with the army; he sees you. 

All of this is the Draft Counseling Service. People 
in need of help, people giving help. No attempt is 
made to tell a man what course to follow, but simply 
to help each man chart a course in the. direction he 
has chosen. 

The Draft Counseling Service is not a club; it's not 
a social group. You can't just be interested in helping 
people with their draft problems, but you must be 
willing to commit many hours a week to counsel, 
read and re-read. Does it sound like a lot of work? It 
is, but then there's a lot of satisfaction too. 

What if you don't have the time to be a counselor, 
but would still like to help? Fine, whatever your 
skills, interests, or schedule, there is a place for you in 
the Draft Counseling Service.

seling Office, located in the Student Union.

Of the many Gay people at the University, about 
one tenth are involved in the various activities of the 
Gay Student Alliance (GSA). The primary purposes 
of the Alliance are to fight oppression of gays in the 
University and the surrounding area and to educate 
both gay and non-gay people in the University 

The major G.S.A. activity is the weekly Coffee- 
house, held every Friday in the Student Union 
Building from 8 p.m. to 1 2 midnight. This is an open, 
informal gathering where people can talk, meet new 
people, and listen to music. For those not particularly 
interested in the D.C. bar scene, the Coffeehouse 
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 meetings. 

Another aspect of G.S.A. is the education of gay 
and non-gay people. Lectures, symposia, leaf-letting 
campaigns and consciousness-raising groups are aimed 
at defining the meaning of being gay, the fears of 
being gay, and the oppression of being gay. 

Finally, G.S.A. has fought and will continue to 

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

The three-fold nature of G.S.A.: social, edu- 
cational and activist, offers a wide range of pos- 
sibilities for involvement. For further information, 
call 454-5263 or stop by the G.S.A. office in the 
Student Union.

Madrigal Singers is an ensemble of singers and 
instrumentalists who specialize in early music. The 
group, open to both music and non-music majors, 
consists of between 16 and 20 singers. Although the 
size is small, the responsibility for the individual is 
large. To strive for ensemble is the ultimate goal. 

Everyone in the group depends on each other. 
Madrigal Singers is only successful because everyone 
cares and gives one hundred per cent. Singers feel a 
sense of pride in themselves, the group and the 

Professor Grentzer is the director of the Singers. 
She is the artist who puts all the colors together for 
the final picture. Without her sensitivity, knowledge, 
dedication, and hard work, there would be no 
Madrigal Singers. 

All interested students are invited to audition for 
the group. 


If you like to sing you should think about joining 
the University of Maryland Glee Club. This group is 
open to any University undergraduate by audition 

with the Director. But don't let the word "audition" 
scare you, for if you can carry a tune and really enjoy 
singing, you may easily become a member. 

As a member, you will enjoy such things as singing 
with the National Symphony, singing in the annual 
Christmas concert and Spring pops concert, visiting 
public schools to present concerts to the young 
people of the Washington community, and taking 
trips to Lincoln Center in New York. 

Singing isn't the only thing that members of the 
Glee Club enjoy. Many personal friendships are 
formed in Glee Club that make it a close group. So if 
all this is for you, come to the Glee Club office, 
Room 207 A, Fine Arts Building. They'll be happy 
to see you. 


A recent addition to the University's community 
of military organizations is the Maryland honor 
guard. A special organization of the guard aims to 
build officers for the Air Force, to publicize ROTC 
and to train men for drill competition. 

An achievement program is set up for any ROTC 
member desiring to become part of the guard. As the 
member learns more of the required information he 
advances in rank within the guard. Toward the end of 
each semester a banquet is held at a nearby Air Force 
base, and members are recognized for their individual 

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 
universities. The team also participates in such local 
events as the Cherry Blossom and Dogwood Festivals. 


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- 
ships, etc. 

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. 


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. 


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 
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. 

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

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.

shop, located in Tawes Fine Arts Building, or phone

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. 


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 
Great Wall. 


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.

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

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- 
tunity to belong to a group where every individual's 
participation contributes to success in a very direct 
and real sense. Contact Dr. Paul Traver, Department 
of Music, for more information. 


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 
the commuters. 

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 
campus government. 

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. 


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.

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 


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 
part-time employment. 

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 
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 
freedom 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 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, 
monthly programs, 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 wel- 
comes anyone who is interested in challenging wom- 
en's oppression. The Women's Center is located in the 
Student Union. The phone is 454-541 1. 


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 
promotions departments. 

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 


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 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.
