The publishing of a college annual is no easy 
task. It is sufficiently difficult, even when a 
long line of precedents exists upon which to base 
the work; but when a completeh' new structure, 
foundation and all, must be erected, the builders 
are of necessity often tilled with despair. Though 
we who have toiled can now draw long sighs of 
relief, and vow never again to enter the field of 
college publications; the fact still remains that 
we shall always carry tender memories of this 
academic year: to deny that the associations 
have been a pleasure would be h\'pocrisy. 

And so, in commending the 1925 Reveille 
to its readers, we devoutly pray that they ma\- 
derive from its pages enjoyment and inspiration 
to equal or even to exceed that which we have 
obtained in the compilation.

T was back in the good old days of September, 1921, that the campus 
surrounding the University of Maryland was brilliantly illuminated by 
rays of emerald hue. Even old Sol looked perplexed and a dark shadow 
of awe crossed his brow — wait a minute folks, don't be alarmed! These 
glaring rays of green were merely the members of the Class of '25. As 
the days rolled by, the high and mighty Sophomores diligently and tirelessly 
plied their trade, and within a few weeks they successfully accomplished their 
desire — that of subduing the Freshmen of '21. We, the innocent victims of 
circumstance, dutifully obeyed the will of these superior beings and walked 
submissively to classes with the Sophomore trademarks of "Rat" and "Rabbit" 
stamped plainly on our once smiling visages. 

The month of June came and woe to the "Sophs" for the impossible became 
possible and we gained our revenge by an overwhelming landslide; we easily 
pulled our superiors into the muddy waters of the famous old Paint Branch. 
By the end of our first year at Maryland, it became noticeable that the Class of 
'25 had some very promising budding athletes, orators, and social leaders. 

And so it came to pass that we were full-fledged Sophomores. A few of our 
'21 classmates had fallen by the wayside but, nevertheless, we still held a goodly 
number of students. A more scholarly attitude seemed to grasp us. Several of 
our members proved that they were real athletes. A member of our class received 
a medal for being the best drilled private and our athletes became prominent in 
Maryland U's little world of sportdom. 

The first two years of our college career seemed to pass by like a flash of 
lightning and we were Juniors before we realized it. Our prom was a gala aff'air, 



and the first of its kind to be given in the new Ritchie gymnasium. During our 
third year the University of Maryhind gained a strong grip in athletics. Several 
members from the Class of '25 were among the leaders in the various sports. 
Girls' basket-ball was inaugurated this year. Four coeds from our class were 
among those who brought this sport to a success at Maryland. Five of our coeds 
also held places on the Girls' Rifle Team. All five of these feminine sharpshooters 
received letters and they are the first women students who ha\e become members 
of the "M" Club. 

Four collegiate years have been stored away in the pleasant corners of our 
memories. Our little journey is over, and we have arrived at the crossroads on 
which we begin our lifetime journeys; may happiness and prosperity accompany 
every member. We wish to express our strongest appreciation to the members 
of the faculty for their sincere efforts in helping us to reach professional goals. 

To the students who follow us, we extend our heartiest congratulations and 
trust that their days at the grand old Alma Mater shall be as pleasant and 
beneficial as our college days have been.

ARVILLE came to us as a sophomore after having 
spent his freshman year at Johns Hopkins registered 
amd in the college of Engineering. Since coming to 
Maryland he has been specializing in commercial courses 
and has done splendid work during his three years here. 
.Aside from his academic work he takes a great interest in 
Dramatics and Public Speaking and has shown exceptional 
ability along both lines. 

A few years ago Carville's happy thought (for a memory 
book I was "variety is the spice of life," now — it is "variety 
used to be the spice of life." We wonder why? Carville, 
may you have every bit of happiness and success possible 
in future years. 

©IC." JOHN BOWIE, the pride of Anne Arundel 
County, set out in hot pursuit of knowledge in the 

" 'lofli)'21. Having lived and consequently worked 

un a larm for some years, he decided he would not be a 
farmer, but an engineer instead, and the past four years 
have shown that he chose wisely. John has all the quali- 
ties that a good engineer should possess. He is one of 
those big outdoor men who picks out what he wants and 
goes after it, with all his mind, sold and strength, and gets 
it one hundred times out of every hundred. 

So here's to you, John; may you continue to get what you 
go after, and may fortune smile on you as you go out to 
practice your profession in the wide, wide world.

jg^ Maryland where for two years he was registered in 
the Engineering CoUege. During the summer of his second 
year he held a position as a salesman, and it was then that 
he decided that he liked the commercial world better and 
decided to take up the commercial course for the remaining 
two years in order that he might have a good foundation 
for a commercial career. 

The fact that he has received a commission in the 
Reserve Officers Corps of the I'nited States Army speaks 
alone for his ability as a military leader. While at the 
University, Ralph took four years training under the 
Military department. 

While at Maryland, Ralph did excellent scholastic work 
and was active in the various student affairs, and it is 
needless to say that he will meet with success in life, for 
where there is so much ability and so determined a wil!

QARKS comes from the state about which perhaps 
more songs are written than any other of the forty- 
gOB eight states — Tennessee, to become an Old Liner for 
short years. It did not take him long to grasp the 
spirit of a true Marylander, and when an athletic contest 
of any kind was in progress Parks was generally there 
helping the boys to cheer the home team to victory. 

The old rule that one privilege granted to all is that of 
choosing their own friends, is still good, and to be a friend 
of Leston's means more than we can explain here. 
"Parks" as he was known on the campus was a good 
student, and interested in student afTairs. His principal 
interest outside of scholastic duties lay in attending the 
Rossbourg Club dances; for a particular reason, no doubt.

Bob Armstrong was our Freshmen Class President; while Stew Whaley has 
presided over the class for the last two years. 

The first snowfall of our Freshmen year witnessed the second battle of the 
Marne at which our enemies, the Sophomores, were routed and fled in confusion. 
Many of the members of our Class have distinguished themselves in all 
branches of athletic activities on the campus. "Zuke" Supplee and "Chief" 
Beatty both gained the distinction of being chosen for the All-Maryland football 
teams. Supplee also was on the x'\ll-South-Atlantic team, and was given honorable 
mention on Walter Camp's All-American Eleven. Hall, Bonnett, Osborne, 
Lanigan, Waters, Parker and Herzog, also did splendid work on the football team. 
Other members of the Class were on the football squad and they worked hard 
throughout the season. 

In Basket-ball our Class has played a prominent part, furnishing the main 
part of the team for the last two years. Beatty, Hall, Supplee, Ensor and Tro.xell 
have been our representatives on the team. Halley, Troxell, Brayton, Waters,

Junior Glass History 

(Concluded from page 93) 

Spinney, Ray and Coakely appeared in the Baseball box score frequently last 
spring. Supplee, Endslow, Whiteford, Deibert and Ditman all contributed 
points in the various track meets held in the spring. Staley has been on the 
Cross-Country Team for the last two years. The Class of '26 furnished many 
members of the Lacrosse squad last year who will have appeared as regulars on 
the Team of this spring. 

The Coeds of our Class have taken an active part in athletics in the formation 
of the Women's Athletic Association of the University. Thelma Winkjer is 
captain of the Girls' Rifle Team. Other Juniors are Laura Amos and Dorothy 

The Dramatic Club, Glee Club, Literary Societies, and various other campus 
activities contain many members of our class who are active, and who are more 
and more coming into control of these organizations. 

The Sophomore Prom last year prov'ed to be a great success, due to the 
splendid co-operation on the part of the Class. And as for our Junior Prom this 
year: it was pronounced by everyone to be the best dance ever staged at the 
University. Every detail of the Prom went off perfectly and the dignified way 
in which it was conducted is said to have set a precedent in local dances. The 
men who were responsible for the Prom's success were John Waters, Jean Brayton, 
Joe Endslow, George Schmidt, and Ahin Parker; not to mention our President, 
Stew Whaley, who worked harder than anyone. 

The success of this year's " Diamondback," and the launching of the 
Reveille again are perhaps the biggest landmarks of our Junior year. Stoner, 
Ennis, McGlone and Kelley ha\e been the guiding hands of these two publications. 

We look forward to our Senior Year with hopefullness and confidence that 
our past successes will continue. 

We wish to express to the departing Class of '25 our sincere good wishes for 
a happy and successful future.

CCORDING to a general concensus of opinion, three outstanding con- 
tributions made to the campus lay the Class of '27 during it's brief 
career at Maryland are brains, brawn and beauty. Its prominence in 
student activities and a fair share of scholarly records help to prove the 
first point in the assertion; prowess in the various fields of athletics seems 
to indicate the truth of the second point; and as pretty a bevy of coeds as ever 
graced the hill, we are told, substantiates the third point concerning the 
pulchritude contributed by this class. 

But since this is neither the time nor occasion for bestowing praises let us 
peruse an account of some e\'ents and accomplishments of the Sophomore 
Class from the time of its inception. 

To begin with, the registration line in the fall of '23 was the longest in history 
of the University. Two hundred and eighty-five aspirants for degrees, including 
forty-seven young women, made their auspicious arrival on the campus that year. 
Recollections (vivid as "Floppy' Jones" hat) of our "baby days," bring to 
mind several happy and unhappy experiences. There were, for instance, those 
harrowing ordeals commemorating rat week — the week when rabbits blossomed 
forth in "Sis Hopkins" pigtails. Or, to continue with the humilating part of 
every freshman's life, do you remember their dance and entertainment? The 
Sophomores are still hunting down the culprits who precipitated a shower of 
innocent cabbages that memorable night — the night when Kathryn Stevenson, 
Eleanor Seal, Alberta Orton and other versatile class talent presented the model 
" Y" hut scene. 

Mantles of authority for the Class of '27 during its freshman year rested 
upon the shoulders of "Jack" Tonkin, President; Roger Whiteford, Vice-Presi- 
dent; Helen Beyerle, Secretary; Monroe Leaf, Treasurer; Albert Granger, 
Sergeant-at-Arms and Edward M. Tenney, Jr., student representative. 

Soon after the officers had taken office a committee, composed of Arthur 
Boyd, J. L. Cardwell, Frances Russell, Charles Futterer and Paul W. Triplett. 
launched the annual freshman hop; which most of us believe outshone the sopho- 
more " prom." 

A glance over the football material produced from '27 men reveals the fact 
that six of the Freshman squad "made" the \'arsity team last fall and figured 
prominently in the games. Among them were "Ed" Tenney, Arthur Boyd, 
"Bill" Ward, Kenchin Coghill, J. L. Cardwell and Myron Stevens. Tenney 
began a brilliant career, only to sustain an injured foot in the early part of the 
schedule; an injury which disabled him for the remaining games. He is now 
looked upon as one of the leading "props" for the team in the 1925-1926 season. 
In basket-ball. Captain Cardwell and the Frosh team won all but one of the 
fifteen games played. 

In baseball, the team, that season, won all but three games. Track, too, 
furnished much interest, the team defeating two Washington teams, and losing 
to two Maryland schools. 

But the men were not the only athletes. On the Rifle Team, for example, 
four girls out of the ten who won letters in the 1923-1924 season were coeds of '27. 
They are Helen Beyerle, Irene Jacobs, Julia Louise Behring and Margaret 
Haeseker. Helen, in addition to being a good markswoman, was also a versatile 
basket-ball player. She, Maxine Heiss (chief organizer of the Women's Athletic 
Association), Elizabeth Taylor, Louise Harbaugh and Alberta Orton were among 
the shinging lights on the Women's basket-ball court both this year and last. 

A class history without the mention of Helen Connor or Winifred Mc- 
Minimy, our star scholars, would be incomplete. Helen won fame last year by 
winning the Alpha Zeta medal for having the best marks of any Freshman in the 
College of Agriculture. Winifred, who never has anything but A's on her report, 
won the Sigma Phi Sigma medal for highest scholastic standing in the entire class.

E came (300 strong) ; we saw (the Sophomores) ; we conquered (our fears). 
But it wasn't as easy as that nor is that all there is to it! 

Following the tradition, we were first initiated, quite thoroughly, by 
the Sophomores. We certainly did get well acquainted with them the 
first few weeks. After we had been tried and found worthy, by the 
•Sophomores, the college activities attracted many of us, and we began the 
first part of our four years' record. 

In the early fall, there was football, cross-country, and track. The records of 
our teams in these sports are evidence of their abilities and also their enthusiasm 
in responding to training. In basket-ball, rifle, boxing and indoor track, some 
very fine material for future varsity teams was discovered. 

The mid-year examinations proved too much for some of the class, but as a 
whole, we came out very much on top. In the early spring, we elected our 
officers, choose our colors of green and white, and made plans for our Freshman 
Dance and annual Freshman entertainment. The latter proved to be instructive 
to the class as well as entertaining to the upper classmen. F"rom it, we learned 
much about the improper storage of fruits and eggs, and the extent of life of such 
vegetables as cabbages, and onions. The Freshman Dance was declared by all 
to be a very fine dance, the decorations receiving many compliments. 

Now that springtime has come, baseball, lacrosse, tennis and track ha\e 
attracted many candidates, and a successful season is promised. 

In looking back over this year, it may seem to some that we have not made 
much progress; but just give us a chance, and at the end of our four years, you 
will declare that ours is the best class that ever graduated from the University of

The Reserve Officers' Training Corps 

HE department of Military Science and 
Tactics reports that the work during the 
past year has progressed very favorably. 
The growth of a general feeling throughout 
[^ I he I'niversity, that the Military Depart- 
ment is a real and actual part of the institution 
striving for co-operation and co-ordination with 
the other departments, has helped to make this 
success possible. 

In addition to strictly military subjects, the 
personnel of the Military Department is constantly 
tr\ing to bring before the students a true sense of 
Americanism, loyalty, obediance to lawful orders, 
respect to elders and superiors, leadership, courtesy 
and various other c|ualities which tend to make 
good citizens. 

The mission of the R. O. T. C. is to produce 

Reserve Officers. It is the policy of the War 

Department to so train the student in the basic 

work, that they will be anxious to continue training 

in the advanced courses. More men are taking 

advanced work every year; this, together with good training and work on the part 

of the unit; has placed the University of Maryland on the list of distinguished 

colleges for the past three years.

HE Men's Rifle Club was first organized in 1921. Since then every year 
has shown an increase in its number of members and the number of 
matches shot. Among the schools fired against this year were Rutgers, 
Cornell, Columbia, Lehigh, Gettysburg, Minnesota, Northwestern, 
Johns Hopkins and George Washington. Teams were also entered in 
the Third Corps Area and the Hearst's Inter-Collegiate Trophy matches. 
The Rifle Club is a progressive organization and much credit for this is due 

to Mr. McManus of the local R. O. T. C. staff for his work in connection with 

the club and teams. 


Harry Clifton Byrd 

Athletic Director and Assistant to the President 

EW persons connected with the University of Maryland are more widely 
or more favorably known, throughout the length and breadth of our 
state, than is the clear-eyed, curly (now slightly grizzled) headed coach 
of athletic teams who bears the name which heads this story. Bearing 
the said name is, however, merely an official dignity. It cannot be said 
that he answers to it. Whether it be on the campus of the University, on the 
sport pages of the newspapers, in the councils of the Southern Conference or 
in the broader fields covered by the American Football Coaches Association or 
the National Collegiate Athletic Association, it is "Curly" Byrd who is the 
subject of discussion. In the hearts of his friends it is always "Curly" and 
"Curly" he will doubtless always remain. 

Born in Crisfield, Somerset County, Maryland, on February 12, 1889, 
Curly recei\ed his early education in the public schools of the county and in the 
Crisfield High School. He entered the Maryland Agricultural College in 1905 
and was graduated in 1908, with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Civil 
Engineering. While in College, Curly was an excellent student and at the same 
time developed into one of the best all-round athletes Maryland has produced. 
He won the Alumni Medal awarded to the best debater in the annual contest 
between the Literary Societies in 1906. He played end on the Varsity Football 
Team in 190.5, and quarterback in 1906 and 1907, being Captain of the team 
in the latter year. He was the chief reliance on the pitching staff of the 
baseball team in 1907 and 1908, and was anchor man on the Relay team of 1908. 
He also established enviable records in the dashes from fifty yards up to four- 

After graduation he took up graduate work in literature at Western Maryland 
College and later studied law at George Washington and Georgetown Universities. 
He played professional baseball for three years. In 1912 he returned to the 
Maryland Agricultural College as Athletic Coach, becoming in 1914 athletic 
director, a position which he has since retained. Since 1910 "Curly" has been a 
member of the sports staff of the Washington Star. 

When the Maryland State College of Agriculture was reorganized into the 
University of Maryland, "Curly" was raised to the position of Assistant to the 
President in order to relieve the President of many details of executive administra- 
tion. It would be difficult indeed to estimate his value to the I'niversity in this 
new position. 

It is, however, in the field of athletics that he is best known. Without a 
gymnasium, with an extremely limited number of athletes to select from, with 
exceedingly limited financial resources, and almost unaided by coaching as- 
sistants. Curly developed athletic teams to represent the University which have 
attracted national attention. Almost at once after his taking charge of the teams 
of the College, Maryland forged to the front in the ranks of Maryland Colleges. 
Since then she has never been headed. Only once since 1915 has Hopkins, our 



chief rival in the state, lowered our colors in football, and not once in ten years has 
she scored a touchdown against Maryland teams coached by "Curly." On the 
other hand, Maryland has defeated such teams as Rutgers, Syracuse, North 
Carolina, and Pennsylvania, and gave Yale the scare of its life in 1923 when the 
score was only 16 to 14 for the Bull-dog, after a gruelling battle. 

That this success of Curly's is not merely local is evidenced by the fact that 
he is a member of the Executive Committee of the Southern Conference, Chair- 
man of the Committee on Membership and District Representati\e of the 
American F~ootball Coaches' Association, and a member of the Council of the 
National Collegiate Athletic Association. 

Maryland is proud of " Curly." She is proud of the successes he has attained 
for her athletic teams; she is proud of the fact that his talent and ability are 
recognized by the leaders of collegiate athletics in all parts of the country; but, 
most of all, she is proud of the undisputed, universally acknowledged fact, that 
teams coached by "Curly" Byrd are genuinely amateur teams, trained to give 
their utmost to win by playing the game in a thoroughly clean, sportsmanslike

HE Old Line football team went through what may be called a triangular 
season, resulting in three victories, three losses, and three ties. 

This showing was good when it is taken into consideration that at 
no time after the first game was Maryland's full first team strength 
available. Injuries, particularly to the backs, forced Curly Byrd to 

present a patched lineup in nearly every game, including the all-important 

fray with Hopkins. 

Another thing which may detract from the showing of the eleven this year is 
the fact of comparison with last year's eleven, the most powerful ever turned out 
by a State college. 

With the loss of such men as McQuade, Groves, Branner, Pollock and Brewer 
from his '23 team, Curly was confronted with the task of rebuilding his aggrega- 
tion, especially the backfield. By a shifting of his men to new positions, he 
presented a set of backs in the first game that looked almost good enough to equal 
the McQuade, Groves outfit. But the backs seemed particularly susceptible 
to injuries with the result that anything like a real offensive power was missing 
the entire season. During four of the most important games — viz., those with 
W. & L.; V. P. I.; C. U. and J. H. U., second string backfield men filled positions. 
So while'the scores of the games are not impressive, the showing was exceptionally 
good, all things considered. That the team did as well as it did may justly be 
attributed to a line that played fine football from the start of the season to the

The Games 

The Old Line team opened the season with the fast, scrappy eleven from the 
Eastern "Sho," and the boys from Chestertown proved to be far from the "set 

I 129 1 


ups" that they were figured in some quarters. Our defense played in mid-season 
form but the offensive work of the team was ragged, particularly in the second 
half when, although within sight of the goal several times, we were unable to put 
the ball over. To Beatty, Maryland's right end, went the honor of scoring the 
first touchdown of the season, when early in the first period he scooped up a 
fumble and went seventy yards for a touchdown. The other two touch-downs 
resulted after consistent marches down the field with Beasley, Pugh and Osborne 
doing most of the ball-carrying. In the second half a number of the reserve men 
got their opportunity and performed credibly. The final score came when Hall, 
making his debut as a drop-kicker, sent the ball over from the 35 yard line. 


This game, though an early season one, was considered one of the most 
important of the year because of the keen rivalry existing between the South 
Atlantic colleges. Although the game was a disappointing one it must be conceded 
that the Generals had the superior team that day at least. The boys from Lexing- 
ton, with the constant encouragement of the "W. & L. Swing" from the stands, 
played in midseason form, flashing an open running attack that was hitting on all 
six. On the other hand, the Black and Gold had an off-day, and just "could not 
get going." The old Maryland fight was there as usual but there was a lack of 
co-operation on both the parts of the offense and defense. W. & L. tossed long 
forwards and worked triple passes with a speed that left our boys bewildered, 
whereas Maryland's plunging backs could make no effective games. The most 
pleasing thing of the day was the fine sportsmanship between both the teams and 
rooters of the two schools. 


It was a much improved Old Line team that swamped the Spiders in this 
fray. Defense and offense showed a complete reversal of form from that which 
had been displayed against Washington and Lee the previous week. Richmond 
was helpless against Maryland's onslaught especially in the second quarter when 
the Black and Gold meandered down the field for three touch-downs. Besley's 
brilliant runs coupled with the passes to Supplee and Burger completely Baffled 
the aggregation from \'irginia. "Bottle" Hall was also in the limelight, scoring 
two field goals from difficult angles. The game was featured by many substitu- 
tions, many Richmond men falling by the wayside under Maryland's smashing 
attack, and many of the Old Line substitutes seeing action. 

MARYLAND, 0— V. P. I., 12 

Virginia Poly, Maryland's Jonah rival, again had all the luck in the world in 
defeating the Old Liners. But the Black and Gold playing with a badly crippled 
team and against great odds was glorious in defeat. With three substitutes in the 
backfield much fumbling occured on Maryland's part, resulting in nine points 
for the Gobblers and robbing Maryland of what seemed a certain touch-down. 
Every time a Marylander would drop the ball, and it happened on seven or more 
occasions during the game, a Poly man would recover. Once, with only two yards 
to go for a score, there was a mix-up in signals among our inexperienced backs 
and the golden opportunity missed. Our line, without exception, played wonder- 
ful football, checking time and time again the heavy experienced Gobbler backs. 
Beatty at end and Burger at tackle smashed play after play of Poly's before they 
could get started. Rutherford, Poly's great drop-kicker, again went on his annual 
rampage against Maryland putting over three from beyond the forty yard line. 



Maryland's eleven journeyed to Tar-heel land to take the rubber contest of 
a five game series from North Carolina. As is typical of all Maryland-Carolina 
affairs the game was hard fought and exceptionally clean. Neither side was able 
to gain much advantage in the matter of downs but it was through the medium 
of two drop-kicks by "Bottle" Hall that the Old Liners were enabled to emerge 
victorious. Brilliant defensive play and close following of the ball featured the 
contest — but the Tar-heels didn't follow quite closely enough, as one of Hall's 
kicks followed a blocked punt that was recovered by Beatty. The other field 
goal was scored from the forty-four yard fine. This is Maryland's second succes- 
sive victory over Carolina, so the Tar-heels may be expected at College Park in 
'2.5 with blood in their eyes. 


The "fighting Irish" from Brookland sprang quite a surprise and gained a 
moral victory when they held the Byrdites to a scoreless tie. The Catholic lads 
are usually considered as "easy" for the Marylanders and it took nearly three 
quarters for the Black and Gold to wake up to the fact that C. U. was in to win. 
Our attack then got going in the final period, only to lose the fjall three times on 
fumbles or intercepted passes when within C. U.'s twenty-five yard line. The 
game, although featured by fierce defensive play on both sides, was slowed up 
somewhat by C. LT.'s constant use of the "huddle" system. So jubilant were the 
Brookland cohorts over the achievement of their team in holding their old rivals 
to a tie that they staged a big snake dance in their new stadium and presented 
gold footballs to their team with the score inscribed. 


With visions of another game like that of '23 when the Old Liners held the 
Yale Bulldog to a 16 to 14 score, fully two hundred rooters followed the team the 
three hundred miles to New Haven via "Flivers," "hops" and the rails. But 
Yale, rated as the best team in the country, this year, was too powerful for our 
plucky, but much lighter eleven. The Eli's, remembering the score of the previous 
year, presented their strongest lineup and a comf:)ination of brilliant running plays 
and passes that were too much for our boys. Curly in an effort to gain poundage 
and check the Yale attack, shifted Beatty and Supplee to the backfield, putting 
Ward and Lanigan on the wing positions. This detracted from Maryland's 
offensive power, with the result that the Black and Gold was able to gain only 
four first downs against the powerful Blue eleven. Our team did not disappoint 
its followers in the matter of gameness, however, battling to the finish. 



This was another one of the scoreless ties in which our team scored four times 
as many first downs as their opponents, but were unable to get the old pigskin 
across the last white line. It was "Homecoming Day" but neither the elements 
nor the Gods of Chance were kind to Maryland. A miserable, melting snow fell 
during the whole encounter making the going heavy and slow. Most of the gains 
made were of the "skid" type. The Old Liners were twice within .State's ten 
yard line, only to fumble or lose the ball at the critical moment. On three other 
occasions we were within drop-kicking distance but all three of Hall's attempts 
failed. On the other hand at only one time was the Wolfpack in a position to 
score and that was when a backed punt gave them the ball on our thirty-yard line. 
Besley's running back of kicks, was one of the brilliant features of an otherwise 
slow game. 



This year the teams went on the field with the odds even. Hopkins had been 
admittedly prepping, all year for this one particular game and Maryland was 
determined to ruffle the Blue Jays feathers because of the '23 game in which the 
Black and Blue had held the most powerful Old Line eleven ever turned out to a 
6 to 6 tie. Each aggregation went in determined to win, but as last year, the 
shade of a hazy November evening descended on no victor and no celebration for 
either side. In yards gained and in first downs, Maryland was far superior to 
their ancient rivals, making twelve of the latter for a total of 210 yards, against 
three and a total of 89 yards for Hopkins. But the final punch was lacking for a 
score. Three times with Captain Ed Pugh leading the onslaught the Old Liners 
started offensive that took them far into Hopkins territory, the closing whistle 
putting an end to the third. Pugh, playing his last game in the Maryland uniform 
gave what was perhaps his best e.xhibition of football in his four years as a varsity 
player. Play after play he was called upon and always responded with slashing 
offtackle gains. The defense of each ele\en was out of proportion to its corre- 
sponding offense with a kicking duel resulting in which the honors were about even. 

To Marylanders the game was a disappointment, not from the viewpoint of 
its spectacularism or the playing of the team, but because of the score. Any 
occasion upon which the Old Liners and the Blue Jays hook up that doesn't 
result in a decided victory for the Black and Gold is a failure. This rivalry, 
existing since 1892, becomes more intensified every year. Hopkins, undoubtedly, 
plays its best game against Maryland, as was evidenced on Thanksgiving Day. 
Maryland, however, proved itself to be the superior team, even though it did not 
achieve the victory that would have brought the Black and Blue self-esteem down

Coach Burton Shipley 

Of the three sports which "Ship" 
coaches, basket-ball is probably his 
strong forte. He is considered as an 
authority on the game, and has a 
reputation for turning out winning 
combinations. In two years "Ship" 
has whipped an aggregation of practi- 
cally green men into a smooth-working 
team that won the great majority of 
its games. 

Captain Jack Faber 

The team's fast, clever, fighting 
forward and leader for the past two 
years. Adept at pot-shots and with 
tricky floorwork. Jack has been a 
continual worry to the opponents' 

Faber intends to return to college 
next year; therefore the five he led 
this fall will be intact for the 1925 

Manager Harmon Baker 

Also Timekeeper Baker; Referee 
Baker; Scorekeeper Baker; and Floor 
Scrubber Baker; for "Bak" was 
called upon to fulfill all these duties 
during the season. By this time 
Baker probably knows as much basket- 
ball as any official in the circuit. But 
'tis better to have managed and 
travelled, than nexer to have travelled 
at all.

The Basket-ball Season 

ARYLAND'S basket-ball activities, though only in their second year of 
re-establishment, ha\'e been highly successful. The \-arsity team this 
year, playing against some of the most formidable fives in the country 
came through with the high ax-erage of tweh'e victories against five 
defeats. When it is considered that this is only the second year of 
basket-ball for the varsity players and a several-year lay-off since high 
school days, this record is highly commendable and much credit must be given 
Coach Shiple>- for the quintet he has turned out. One thing that characterized 
the Old Line outfit was its fighting spirit. The old adage that "a team that won't 
be beaten can't be beaten," was demonstrated se\'eral times this year when 
the Black and Gold came through to win in the last few moments of play. Captain 
Faber and Ensor as forwards made a cle\'er combination, adept at floor play and 
both good shots. Long, rangy Supplee at center was a man around whom plays 
could be built. Beatty and Cardwell were a pair of husky, fighting guards, whom 
it was mighty hard to pass. In addition to these men. Coach Shipley had capable 
reserve strength in Burger, Tro.xell, Stevens and Boyd. 

Starting off with only four days' practice after football season, the Old 
Liners greatly surprised the five from the l'ni\ersity of Virginia by winning a 
fast game. After that the team packed their duds and went on a short northern 
trip in order to defeat Columbia, 1923-24 inter-collegiate champs, and Ste\ens. 
Following this the team suffered its first set-back at the hands of the Naval 
Academy. Maryland, for one of the few occasions during the year, was way off 
color in this game. In the next game the Black and Gold had no trouble in whip- 
ping Lafayette by a one-sided score. Then came the game of games against our 
old rival, C. \]., in the Brooklander's gym. In a hard-fought battle, it was all 
Maryland could do to win by the exceptional work of Supplee in the last five 
minutes. North Carolina, South Atlantic Champs, then visited us and lowered 
our colors only after a fast and furious game. The next game was with Gallaudet, 
and, although defeated, the mutes furnished much more trouble than was ex- 
pected. Following this Washington College's cle\er team, which hiis played 
together for a number of years, took the Old Liners into camp. Then came the 
big game with Princeton, 1924-25 Inter-collegiate Champs, in Baltimore. Mary- 
land played well, but Princeton was just too clever for us. New York City College, 
Stevens and South Carolina next visited, to be given a taste of Maryland hospi- 
tality, a licking, and then sent home. After that, just to show Virginia that our 
early season victory over her was no fluke, the team visited Charlottesville, and 
again won from the Cavaliers. Following this the team left for its annual pilgrim- 
age to Atlanta, Georgia and the Southern Conference Championships. In the 
first game Maryland staged quite an upset in defeating the powerful Alabama 
five, but was so used up in this game that North Carolina State won from them 
rather handily. The Old Liners, upon their return home, brought the season to 
a successful climax by once more defeating C. V.

The Track Season 

RACK at Maryland suffered a slump during and subsequent to the War, 
but has been revKed in earnest, and in this, the third year of its re- 
construction, the team has competed, with honors, at some of the best 
meets in this district. The indoor season consisted of six meets. The 
Old Liners were somewhat handicapped by lack of real indoor training 
facilities, but what seemed like a disadvantage in running on the small 
gym track later turned out to be a blessing in disguise in furnishing experience on 
some of the "right-angled" turns encountered on different floors. The first meet 
was the Southern Conference affair at Charlottesville. Here the Black and Cold 
gained ten points for second place. The freshmen cleaned up on their division, 
but the real victory was that of the mile relay over the Penn relay championship 
\'irginia four. In a three-cornered race between Maryland, Virginia, and Carolina 
the Old Liner's quartet won handily, repeating in the University of Richmond's 
meet the next night. Also, in the Richmond meet, Maryland took second place 
in point scoring; while Matthews, a freshman, jumped five feet, ten inches for a 
school record. The next meet was the deorgetcjwn games in Washington. This 
was an off night for our boys, their only points coming in the high jump, the relay 
being nosed out by Richmond in the fastest race of the night. The team made a 
great come-back a short time later at the All-Baltimore games, winning the point 
trophy by a large margin. Three first places, fi\e seconds, and fi\'e thirds were 
our achievements for that night. In the Johns Hopkins' Games our varsity relay 
had no trouljle in defeating Navy in the fast time of three minutes, thirty-two and 
one-fifth seconds; while our frosh also won handily from the Plebes. In the open 
events, however, we did not do as well. At another All-Baltimore meet that 
wound up the indoor season, our men set the pace in the open events with ten 
points, and tied for the second greatest number in the South Atlantic competition. 
Smith, Matthews and Dittman starred to give Maryland the first places re- 
spectively in the 440 yard open, the 60 yard dash, and the South Atlantic shotput. 
The Relay lost a tough-luck race to the Fifth Regiment in the fast time of 3 
minutes, 30 seconds, for the State Championship. 

Just what the outdoor season will result in is problematical but prospects 
look mighty good. An attractive schedule has been arranged in which the team 
competes in the Penn relays and Southern Conference Championships, besides 
dual meets with Hopkins, \'. M. I., Richmond, Navy and Carolina.

' S the Reveille goes to press, the make-up of the ball team is still dubious, but prospects 
look mis>;hty good on paper. Battery, infield and outfield seem to be well supplied with 
a number of old men with promising new ones from the frosh outfit of last year. The 
fight for positions is a keen one, so the nine that is turned out should be on a par with 
other of Old Line teams. The pitching stafT of .Schrider, Nihiser, Mills, Brayton, 
Burroughs and Coakley is one of the strongest since the "\ ic Keene days" and should 
be able to stand up under the heavy schedule. Spinney and Coghill will no doul)t do 
the bulk of the receiving. Besley, Troxell, Moran, Burroughs and (iardner, all letter 
men, with Stevens and Murray, new men, are putting up a lively scrap for the four infield positions. 
In the garden, Remsberg, Snyder and Burgee will no doubt get first call, unless Brayton or 
Stevens should be shifted. 

Coach Shipley has been favored with warm spring weather, thus far, and his men should be 
in the pink for the Southern tour that will have come off during Easter vacation. Travelling as 
far south as Georgia, the Old Liners will engage in about seven games with teams of the Southern 
Conference. No wonder the boys are battling for positions with the prospect of such a trip before 
the lucky ones. In addition to the Easter jaunt, a very attractive schedule has been arranged.

Who after wielding a stick for several 
years himself, decided that it was 
much less strenuous to be "one of the 
boys" from the manager's seat on the 



ACROSSE, or " Irish Tennis" as it is affecti(inately known at Maryland, 
is one of those gentlemen's games in which the "man" part must be there, 
but the "gentle" may very nicely be dispensed with. This old Indian 
game, spectacular and thrilling as it is, has, until a few years ago, been 
slow in its development. This is not true, however, in the State of 
Maryland, which has for years been the Lacrosse man's stronghold. About 
jjA five years ago large uni\ersities began to take up the game and it is now rapidly 
forging its way to the front as one of the most popular of collegiate sports. An 
inter-collegiate league, divided into North and South sections, has been 
instituted and for the past two years the Old Liner's team has been one of the 
main contenders for the championship. Last year, victories over Navy, Pennsyl- 
vania, Hopkins, Stevens and others placed us high in the rating. The victories 
over Hopkins and Navy were particularly sweet, and we like to call ourselves 
"moral champions." 


Coach Truitt and his gang are after the state and national championship 
with a vigor this year; but the task is going to be far from easy. Captain Marty, 
McQuade, Branner, Brewer, Hidlebach and Rowe, six powerful men around whom 
the team had been built for several seasons, have graduated, and new players 
must be found to fill their shoes. Prospects are uncertain; but with six of the 
last year's fighting outfit left as a nucleus, coupled with Coach Truitt's developing 
ability, a credible combination may be assured.

UR Cross-Country Team had its most successful season 
since its organization several years ago. Coach Truitt had 
plenty of material to work with, all of last year's team 
being on hand and quite a large number of freshmen. 
Practice started immediately upon the opening of school 
and the antelopes were soon doing their daily dozen miles 
o\er the hills and vales of Prince Ceorge County, 
naturally necessitated strict training; but this traini 
reward in the shape of six victories against one 

Jl defeat. The Old Line Harriers lost the first meet 

■ of the season to V. P. I. but came back to win the 

" next five. Virginia was beaten by the narrow 

COACH TRUITT margin of one point, but William and Mary proved 
easy. Then the point trophies of the Baltimore 
marathon, the South Atlantic championships, and the Post 
marathon were all captured by Maryland's entrants. The out- 
standing men of the season were Newman, Patruska, Bowman 
and Compher. Others on the team were Buckman, Hill, Staley 
and Neilson. A great deal of credit must be given Coach Truitt 
for his work with this team ; he has devoted his time to it for love 
of this sport, in which he himself was once a runner of note. ( 

Note — In a post-season race, the Laurel-to-Baltimore Marathon, Al Patruska 
and Wilfred Froehlich, University of Maryland harriers, sprang the biggest 
surprise in long distance racing circles for some time by finishing fourth and 
seventh respectively. Over a long hard course of 26 miles, 385 yards, against a 
field of forty odd entrants, including Olympic men, these two Old Liners, almost 
novices at the game, ran courageously, in the face of a stiff wind, to win these 
coveted positions.

NTIL last year tennis at the Lhihersity of Mary- 
land suffered a decided lapse. For three years 
there was no team due chiefly to lack of interest 
of the students. Because of an insistent and 
popular demand, however, tennis has now been 
added to the sports calendar. 
The first team representing the school met with de- 
cided re\erses, not winning a team match. This was 
probably due, though, to the fact that it was the first time 
that a team had been selected for three years, and little 
or nothing was known of the relati\e strength of the 
available material. 

This year, however, with a \"er>' promising schedule 
and good material, Maryland looks forward to a very 
successful season.

limitations set bv the Conference, were arranged for all sports, and nearly every 
freshman in the University represented his college in some contest during this year. 

Among the chief problems that had to be overcome in the fostering of 
Freshman Athletics, was that of finding comfortable team-space for the Freshmen 
to practice and change "togs." Even with so large a campus as Maryland's, it 
was found difficult to provide a space for every team and naturally the freshman 
were assigned the gulleys and the hillsides for practice. It is certain, however, 
that, in a few years, this defect will be eliminated for the University is bound to 
grow and expand to meet the needs of its increasing student body. 

As the Reveille goes to press, the Freshmen athletes have already shown 
their marked ability in football, basket-ball and track, and they are giving pleasing 
promises for the other branches. 



HE success of the Freshman football squad 
this past season depends not so directly 
on the number of games won, as it does on 
the type of players which de\eloped 
during the campaign. The squad as a 
whole made a most creditable showing by 
breaking even on the games played, winning two 
and losing two, closing the season by winning from 
North Carolina Freshmen 13 to 12 in an exception- 
ally well-played game. 

Under the Southern Conference rules Freshman 
teams are allowed to schedule only five games, but 
the University is fortunately situated so near 
Washington that it was possible to arrange five 
practice scrimmages with four of the Washington 
high school teams; thus providing experience in 
playing, which is invaluable to the "Youngsters." 
The Freshmen opened their season with Balti- 
more City College, who unfortunately forfeited the 
game at the beginning of the second half, when the 
score stood 3 to in favor of the Freshmen. In the second game, a very much 
more experienced team won from the "Cubs," the Virginia Freshmen. The 
bitterest pill came when it wsa necessary to swallow a 3 to defeat from the 
hands of the Catholic University Freshmen. 

But the past was all forgotten when the Freshmen won from Carolina 
Freshmen 13 to 12. Beaten 12 to until the end of the third quarter, by sheer 
courage and undaunted confidence in themselves, our "Rats" took advantage of 
the breaks and scored twice, kicking one of the points after touchdown, which 
meant victory. The Freshmen did so well in this final game that to mention any 
of them as stars would only mean that certain of the players had more experience 
than others, and it might detract from the fact that every man on the squad had 
done his job with the best that was given him to do it with. 






NTER-FRATERNITY Basket-ball has five points in its favor at Mary- 
land. First, and foremost, it gives athletics to other than men of varsity 
caliber; it promotes better spirit and co-operation among the Greeks on 
the Hill; third, it makes a good hunting ground for varsity material; 
fourth, it ofTers a break in the mid-winter monotony; and last, but not 
least, it affords the coeds an opportunity to get out of the dorms for a longer 
period in order to cheer their favorite fraternity gladiators. 

The contests have furnished some surprisingly good basket-ball. Former 
High School stars who have not made the varsity have their opportunity to shine 
here. The games have been a little rough in spots but this all adds to the fun of 
the affairs. 

The league is divided into national and local sections, the winners of which 
play each other for the championship and two silver cups. Delta Mu won the 
local division and Delta .Sigma Phi, the national. Delta Sigma Phi was successful 
in capturing the entire league championship for the second successive season.

ENNIS for the first time took its place in the realm of coed sports last 
fall when the Women's Athletic Association staged a short tourney on 
the campus courts. It was planned only by way of experiment — a sort 
of bait to see just how many girls were interested; but the results were so 
encouraging, the girls so enthusiastic that the managers have decided to 
make a tennis tournament an annual affair from now on. 

Constance Church, versatile freshman, proved to be the "Helen Wills" of 
this preliminary event. And, all upper classmen will agree, Connie gave us a 
suspicion that she knew tennis. At any rate a number of the all-around athletes 
(speaking of coeds, of course) did not succeed in repulsing her f)nslaught. With 
swift strokes and sure, our agile champion eliminated her opponents as fast as 
they came. Only when she met Mary Harbaugh, who had previously defeated 
Patricia Wolf in a well-played match, in the finals did she have a real struggle, 
the match ending in a score of 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. 

Twenty-five tennis devotees participated in the fall tourney. These were a 
sufficient number, it was thought, to warrant a spring tournament in which a 
Gold Medal for the winner, and se\eral other \aluable prizes to the Runner-up 
and Semi-finalists, were to act as added incentives. Pat was elected manager 
of tennis for 1925. As this goes to press Pat was found kneedeep in preparations 
for the spring event.

VERY year the Girls' Rifle Team grows better and better, if that were 
possible. Even the most perfect of markswomen, Annie Oakley, herself, 
we venture to say would pat each of the coed riflers on the back with the 
remark, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." For undoubtedly 
the consistently high scores they've made against their inter-collegiate 
competitors this season ranks them, if not the best, at least among the very 
best women riflers in the country today. 

The facts of the accomplishments attained by the University of Maryland 
team speak for themselves. Out of eleven telegraphic matches on the schedule 
they lost but one, and this against the University of Chicago team which scored a 
perfect 500. However, this loss was just another spur to do better, and within 
the following weeks the local girls had shot perfect scores against four of their 
rivals — Michigan Agricultural College, Syracuse University, University of 
Arizona, and University of X'ermont. Throughout the entire season they dropped 
but thirteen points. 

Manager Mary Harbaugh arranged a schedule that she called "short and 
snappy," covering only two months and calling for an average of two matches per 
week. These were in addition to the National Rifle Association matches, returns 
of which had not been received before this article went to press. 

When asked to indicate who the highest individual scorer was Coach Sargent 
Simmonds replied he would have to mention three — Helen Beyerle, Anna Dorsey, 
and Rebecca Willis since these three ranked within a hair's breath of each other. 
Letters were bestowed upon them and also upon Mary Harbaugh, Betty Amos and 
Thelma Winkjer.

EVER has interest in basket-ball been as keen among the Llniversity of Maryland girls 
as it has been this year. Thanks to the excellent management of the Women's Athletic 
-Association, and the co-operation of Coach Shipley (to whom the coeds are eternally 
grateful for permitting them to use the men's balls, and for having the gym floor scrubbed 
before games) two complete schedules were played with a precision that even the 
experienced men's teams might envy. The season opened January 26, with the inter- 
class championships, and closed with inter-sorority competition .'\pril 1. 

Interclass rivalry honors went to the sophomore girls. With a formidable team that 
humbled seniors, juniors, and freshmen alike, the champions won' every game they played, 
A resume of scores tells the story: sophomores, 31; freshmen, 9; sophomores, 20, seniors, 12; 
sophomores, 12, juniors, 5; sophomores, 41, freshmen, ti; sohpomores, 17, seniors 14; and sohpo- 
mores, 20, juniors, 7. 

Just to show that basket-hall for women athletes is now being "served" in style, a handsome 
silver cup has been offered the victorious team. This trophy will each >'ear go to the winner of 
the interclass series. 

Kappa XI won the inter-sorority tournament. 







Women's Athletic Association 

S the past season bears witness, the new Women's Athletic Association, 
which began functioning last fall, has proved to be a valuable impetus in 
establishing coed sports on the campus. 

I'ntil this year, it is safe to say, rifle was the only field in which 
women athletes were sufficiently organized to make a showing. Other 
activities such as tennis, track or basket-ball were scattered about like 
so many lost sheep. Talent there was galore, but no incentive, no "central 
governing body" to spur the young women to show their prowess, as it were. 

Hence, by bringing all athletic interests to which women are adapted under 
one wing, the new A. A. has fulfilled a big mission. 

Now for a few words as to the origin and purpose of the organization. Among 
the pioneers who agitated the movement was Maxie Heiss. Heart and soul in the 
cause. Max was invited to offer her suggestions before a meeting of the Women 
Students' Government Association early in October. No Marc Antony could 
have had a more eager audience of Romans than Max had of coed listeners that 
day. Without delay a committee, composed of Max as chairman, Helen Beyerle, 
Minnie Hill, Patricia Wolf, Mary Harbaugh, Thelma Winkjer and Elizabeth 
Duvall was chosen to draw up a constitution. 

A week later officers were elected and the constitution accepted. Following 
is the purpose of the association outlined : To supervise girls athletics; to promote 
more and better sports; to promote good sportsmanship; and to provide an 
incentive by presenting letters to individuals and trophies to winning teams. 
Max was unanimously chosen president; Pat Wolf, vice-president; Helen Beyerle, 
secretary, and Mary Harbaugh, treasurer. 

Rifle already well organized, basket-ball and tennis were the two sports upon 
which the girls first concentrated their immediate attention. A tennis tourna- 
ment was opened for the purpose of preparing the way for a regular tournament 
in spring; basket-ball followed on the heels of tennis. A schedule providing for 
both inter-class and inter-sorority competition was begun January 26, and was 
such a success that there is a slight danger of the girls outshooting the men next 

According to present signs the Women's Athletic Association is destined to a 
brilliant future. With basket-ball and tennis well established, track and hockey, 
and perhaps baseball too will be the next sports tackled. Several obstacles must 
still be surmounted — the matter of finances for one — but these will, with a little 
time and patience, soon be ironed out.

Resume of the Social Season 

HE social season this year has been an extremely brilHant one. The year 
opened with the President's reception being held in the Richie Gym- 
nasium. It was well attended and wonderfully arranged. 

The Rossbourg Club Dances have been a success. This year's 
committee has exerted an effort to out-do the dances given by the Club 
during previous years. They have been successful in getting good music, 
artistic decorations, and tasteful refreshments. In all of these they have suc- 
ceeded in their efforts. We have however missed the formal Rossbourg Dance 
that has heretofore usually been given before spring. Even though the Club has 
given it later this year, judging from the success of the previous dances it is bound 
to be crowned with the same laurels. 

The Junior Prom was one of the most splendid ever given in the history of 
the University. No efforts were spared in selecting the best music; the most 
appreciated, lasting, and beautiful favors; artistic decorations; also appealing 
and tasty refreshments. 

The Prom was well attended. I am sure every upper classmen tried to bring 
the best looking girl he knew. It would have been a great task for any judge of 
beauty to pick out the best dressed and prettiest. 

The Sophomore and Freshman Proms were also well arranged and successful, 
judging from the many favorable comments heard about the campus. 

We also, at this time, feel sure that the Junior-Senior German will be equalh- 
as splendid. 

Every university should have a certain amount of social life on its campus. 
It makes for a better feeling among undergraduates, graduates, and faculty. 
Maryland is not lacking in this quality. We have had much of the social atmos- 
phere on the campus this year. Besides the Rossbourg Club Dances, and Proms, 
there have been fraternity dances, house parties, tea dances, musicales, and teas. 
These being held at the girls' dormitories, or off the campus at the various frater- 
nity houses. 

It is hoped that some day an effort will be made to carry out a custom 
that has now become a tradition at many universities. It is that of having 
particular week-ends set aside for fraternity house parties. Let us hope for more 
social activities on the part of our fraternities. 

The seniors, as they pass out of the gate this year, may look back up the road 
of the year that lies behind them and have dreams and visions of a brilliant social 
year that has closed. Its recollection should remain with them as a precious 
gem in the jewel box of memory. 

We trust that the senior and juniors to be, have been keen observers and wil 
make an effort to make succeeding years as brilliant or better, if possible — to 
make their proms, dances, teas, etc, just as gay and splendid. 

To the seniors we hope that their future walk along life's road will be strewn 
with flowers of happiness and joy up to the altar of success.

History of Publications 

Both the " Diamondback" and the Reveille have their origin in The Cadet, 
a monthly periodical that was pubhshed by the Maryland Agricultural College 
during the period from 1894 to 1895, inclusive. 

The "Diamondback" 

A weekly periodical by the students of what is now the University of Mary- 
land was first presented in the year 190S when the institution was known as the 
Maryland Agricultural College. This publication was known as the "Triangle." 
In 1914, however, it became the "M. A. C. Weekly." In 1916, when the ins^titu- 
tion became the Maryland State College, the name of the periodical was changed 
to "The Maryland State Review." The name was again changed in 1921 when 
the institution became the University of Maryland: first to "The l^niversity 
Review;" and finally in 1921 the name, " Diamondback" wa 

las gi\en to the publica- 

The name "Diamondback" comes from the name of the noted animal of 
Maryland, the "Diamondback Terrapin," a species of which no other state can 

Some of the many men who have been popular in making the "Diamondback" 
a success are R. N. Young, Robert Crain, Jr., A. S. Wardwell, S. R. Newell, 
W. S. Crooks, A. Block, Leroy Mackert, Ralph Chase, Charles Geist and J. I.' 
White, who is now Editor-in-Chief. 

The '^Reveille" 

The Reveille was first conceived as an idea by the Class of '97 when in its 
Junior year. The class realized the need of a yearbook and labored with honest 
efforts in behalf of its accomplishment, but failed. 

Upon becoming Seniors, "undaunted by the failure of the preceeding year, 
the class again entered upon the work with renewed vigor" and the first Reveille 
appeared in the year 1897. 

The College at that time was known as the Maryland Agricultural College. 
The discipline was very militaristic and a word well known to the students was 
the name given to the bugle call early in the morning, rousing them from peaceful 
slumber to begin the day's labor. So it was decided by the Class of '97 to call 
the year book the Reveille, signifying the beginning of a work that they hoped 
would be carried on by the succeeding classes. 

Their hopes have been realized and the Reveille, with few exceptions, has 
been published every year, from that time until the year 1921, when the College 
Park branch and the Baltimore branch of the University of Maryland joined their 
efforts in publishing the "Terra Mariae." 

The "Terra Mariae" was again published in 1922, but in 1923 and 1924, 
because of some financial difificulty, the College Park branch of the University 
did not assist in the publication. 

This year's Reveille, like its original predecessor is again the result of 
determined efforts put forth following an unsuccessful attempt at publication. 
Accordingly, the word Reveille is once more a particularlv appropriate title. 
Henceforth it is to be hoped, the College Park branch of the University of Mary- 
land will never be without its annual.

I wonder in the afterwhile, 

When God takes one away, 
Will not the lonely soul return 

In wind or fog or spray, 
Or in the bursting buds of spring 

Or in the April rain. 
I only know to be with Thee 

I will come back again 
Because God gave the love we share. 

Perhaps he'll let me be 
A ray of living sunlight, 

To shine, my dear, on thee. 

G. H. S., '26.

The Masque and Bauble Club 


HE Masque and Bauble Club has as its purpose "to associate the college 
talent and playrights of the University for the advancement and pro- 
duction of collegiate theatricals." Membership in this club is limited to 
those who by a series of "try-outs," prove their interest and ability 
either in dramatics or stage technique. The club plans to give two or 
three full length dramas or recognized standard comedies each scholastic 
besides various one-act plays which the club anticipates presenting at 

student assemblies, beginning next Fal 

Two years ago Dramatics at the University of Maryland were thriving under 
conditions which would ha\e brought great discouragement had it not been for a 
small group of earnest and loyal members of the Dramatic Club, under the direc- 
tion of Professor C. S. Richardson. They resolved that the organization should 
grow and begin to gain the recognition that drama in college deserves. 

" All-Of-A-Sudden Peggy" and "What Happened To Jones" were the two 
performances given that year, with a set of screens, doors, windows, and the usual 
furniture borrowed for the occasion. After this, X'ictor Kerney, who has had 
e.xperience on the professional stage, as an actor and director, became assistant to 
Professor Richardson. .Strenuous rehearsals were conducted and the production 
of "Reincarnations of 3023 B. C." proved the success of Maryland dramatics. 
Engineers of the graduating class constructed mechanical devices for the opening 
of the tomb wall; others painted scenery and made properties; worked on curtains 
and costumes and painted and applied the jeweled garments; while others worked 
on the electrical etTects. 

The next year courses were offered in dramatic art and stage technique as a 
part of the college curriculum. In spite of conflicting schedules a large number of 
students took the courses, which proved very successful. 

On "Drama Night" the plays (presented were: "The Maker of Dreams," 
a fantasy; "Hyacinths," a domestic drama; and the "Wind of Allah," a tragedy 
of the lives of three lepers. This night's productions were triumphant successes 
and were repeated in response to numerous requests. 

Last year, since there were no accomodations, only a platform with a rpw of 
footlights for a stage, many physical and mechanical handicaps, no opportunity 
to provide permanent equipment or stage setting because of the auditorium's 
general utility purpose, no storage rooms, and very meager dressing rooms; a 
new plan had to be adopted. A remo\able and portable-pipe frame work was 
erected, from which hangs the cyclorama curtain, which was made and painted 
by members of the class. Screens, curtains, doors, windows, etc. are among the 
stage properties now owned by the club, as a result of their own work. " RoUo's 
Wild Oat" and "Kempy" were also presented that year. They were entirely 

This year, organization difficulties combined with the need for a full-time 
coach has pre\'ented the living up to its schedule. At the time of the Reveille's 
going to press, the Club is about to present "The Charm School," a three-act 
comedy of proven merit by Alice Duer Miller and Robert Milton. Rehearsals 
point to a success that should lead to the subsequent presentation of another 
piece in June.

The Maryland Opera Club 

UST a little over a year ago several musically talented enthusiasts of the 
campus concie\'ed an idea that the University of Maryland needed an 
organization to promote, and instill an appreciation of operatic music. 
This idea won immediate support among those with \ocal and instru- 
mental ability, and, in May, 1924, Maryland Opera Club became an 

Today, with a membership of approximately fifty, it is considered one of the 
most flourishing student activities on the hill. 

Two operatic performances, with a third "in the making" as this article was 
going to press, is the organization record to date. First in their repetoire was 
"Carmelita," a colorful gypsy operetta which the club produced in June week of 
1924, under the direction of Professor Louis Goodyear, who had written the 
libretto. That performance, coming at the time it did, drew one of the largest 
audiences of the year. But the success of " Carmelita " with its charming melodies, 
versatile songsters and dancers, proved more than momentary. That fall a 
special reciuest came from the student body and patrons without College Park, to 
repeat the operetta. A second performance was therefore gi\en the following 
November, and, let it be said, before another crowded house. 

Mrs. Anne Stewart, lyric soprano, sang the role of "Carmelita," the gypsy 
princess, while Katherine Baker was the "Rosita." Both young women were 
applauded for their solo work. Mrs. Stewart will be remembered for her "A 
Gypsy Maiden I." Katherine Baker was hailed as a true "prima donna" when 
she sang "The Song of the Nightingale," a favorite selection of concert singers. 
Douglas Burnside sang opposite Mrs. Stewart in the role of Don Carlos. 

Encouraged by the hearty reception of their first production the embryo 
Martinelli's and Jeritza's ambitiously selected the famous operetta "Erminie" 
for their next pubfic appearance. This time, Katherine Baker was cast in the 
stellar role. Although the early publication of the Reveille will not permit a 
review of the operetta which was to be given in May, it might be added here that 
all plans made, together with the enthusiastic rehearsals, indicated that "Erminie" 
was destined to be the most artistic presentation given on the auditorium stage. 

Credit for the successful launching of the Maryland Opera Club in a large 
measure goes to Professor Goodyear, Mr. and Mrs. .Stewart, and Miss Elizabeth 
Swenk who have spent many hours modeling an organization that should be of 
lasting worth to the college. 

Director Goodyear said he hoped the club would soon be in a position where 
it could present several operas each year. He particularly had in mind the 
Gilbert and Sulli\an light operas, and similar selections re\i\ed recently by the 
inimitable DeWolf Hopper. Some of these plans may sound ambitious: but to 
Maryland Opera Club members they are only the beginning of higher aims.

and leader of the University chorus; an 
organization that has had as its special 
fimction the annual presentation of a Festival 
of Music. On these occasions the campus has 
been given a taste of music of high calibre. 
That musical organizations of all kinds have 
nourished so markedly at the University is 
doubtless due to the stimulation of Dr. House 
and the talent that he has so effectively 
brought together.

HE University of Maryland Glee Club is nearing the completion of its 
fifth season under the leadership of Dr. Homer C. House; and according 
to all reports the songsters have been highly successful in their efforts 
both artistically and financially. 

The Glee Club is an important factor in the life of the University 
aside from its purpose of entertainment, it serves the two-fold end of 
making the singers acquainted with the state and of affording residents of the 
State an opportunity of learning of the work of the University. 

The members of the club, traveling from town to town in a large omnibus, 
made their annual tour during the latter part of the Christmas holiday season. 
The musicians presented their program in a number of the larger towns of Western 
Maryland, besides giving a concert in Haynesboro, Pennsylvania. This program, 
about which the gleemen are very enthusiastic, was inaugurated by Dr. House at 
the time he assumed his present connection with the University. 

Besides the concerts given on the Christmas tour, entertainments have been 
presented by the singers many times during the scholastic year in Washington and 
near-by places. 

From the first measures of the spirited march-song "Onward," by Geibel, 
the opening number; to the thrilling strains of "Maryland, My Maryland;" the 
Club's program consisting of modern, classic, and college selections has proved 
\ery popular wherever given.

the president of each of the two literary societies and the president of the

The Council of Oratory and Debate has been compelled to limit the scope of 
inter-collegiate debating on account of lack of funds, there being no money avail- 
able to pay the expenses of contestants on trips to other colleges. The Maryland 
debating teams have lead, however, contests with St. Johns College, Johns 
Hopkins I'niversity, Penn State and the program this year includes debates with 

George Washington and Oglethorpe Uni\ersities.

now preparing for debates with the Uni\'ersity of Georgia 
and Oglethorpe University. There is no reason why Mary- 
land should not be able to carry off honor from these affairs. 
Most of the debaters have had no little experience before entering 
the University of Maryland; and one, Macko, has more than once 
publicly demonstrated his ability here — he is the holder of one of 
the inter-literary society debate medals.

WE THANK you. 

The Editors 

The Faculty 

HE word "Faculty" comes from the Latin, "facilis," meaning easy, and 
probably refers to a position as an instructor. Messrs. Funk and Wag- 
nails give it as a word synonymous with "ability," although it is utterly 
'nconceivable how such an obsolete definition has found its way into 
an otherwise good lexicon. 

Dating back to the period of the Captivity in Egypt, and more recently to 
the Spanish Inquisition, which has left traces of its influence f)n its presentday 
meaning, the word, "faculty," has a grand and gruesome history. 

Being naturally interested in antiques and ancient history, we have com- 
Pyled a history of the learned faculty at our own Penitentiary — which word, by 
the way, is a perfectly good synonym of llniversity, as any student will agree to 
its modern usage. At any rate, the following history will reveal some of our 
outstanding Faculty Members. 

In the beginning, the babe of education was cradled in Morrill Castle by 
such spectres of the past as the Tall-pharaoh and one Richard' s-son who were 
secured at a great ex-Spence. Later, there came a Peer's-son whose very name 
strikes terror into the unwary freshman; but fails to Creese the tranquil atmos- 
phere of the engineers, who are tutored by John's-son. 

On the Mount is a House, which was built by a Carpenter, and from its doors 
one may see the Appleman as he Gambles over the Lee, and strives to sell his 
Lemons and Herring for a Proffitt. We also Reed that in Picken a Good-year in 
which to fish, for the Wiley Schad, one must be endowed with that True-wit 
which belonged to Isaac Walton, and which a great many of our modern anglers 
for knowledge, best known as students, are prone to use when they seek to enter 
the Temple of knowledge that may lead over the long Spann to the Whitehonse. 


INCE its inception a few years ago when coeds became the latest at our 
grand and glorious University, the "HILLTOP-GUARDS" have 
gained for themselves a most enviable record. Theirs is the noble duty 
of protecting and guarding those who dwell in the various strongholds on 
the hill. Their motto is: "Get 'em — Guard 'em — Keep 'em!" Which 

is often translated to mean ' 'Love — honor — and obey!" 

The following will point out their characteristics, and they may be judged 

PAGE GARDNER holds the office of distinction. He is Major by virtue 
of his consistency and capability of "putting the thing across." 

ED MELCHIOR still holds the rank of buck-private because of his auto- 
matic forgetfulness. He thinks the Practice House is the "Red Seal Rubber" 
shoe store. 

JEAN BRAYTON is the Transportation Officer. His specialities are suit- 
cases, wheelbarrows and trunks, and he runs an express service between the 
Correction House and the carline. 

DIZZY ALDRICH is the Installation Officer because of his ingenuity in 
conceiving of and installing a receiving station at Gerneaux Hall so that he could 
keep in more constant communication and that a greater number could hear his 

BOB MORRIS and ED THOMPSON spend most of their time in the 
Guard House, serving time for wagon busting and toe-treading. (Two things 
cannot occupy the same space at the same time). WHITEFORD tries to make 
time while these boys are in the Guard House. 

RUSSEL STRITE is the Captain. He knows the ropes, at least so far as 
Hyattsville and Mt. Rainier movies go. 

WALTER BROMLEY is the boy that handles the cannons (during the night) 
and evidently holds Y. M. C. A. meetings while serving guard near the flagpole. 

HENRY WALTER is the Chaplain. He goes to the house of worship 
every night. 

JOHNNY WILSON is the Scout Officer. A good scout knows his grounds. 
That's why Johnny scouts on the Hill and in Southern Maryland so much. 

FRED BULL is the Officer of the Day — but he serves at night. Each 
morning finds him at Bill White's filling station. 

CARVILLE BOWEN is the exclusixe Second Lieutenant. He has reached 
this distinction by his poise and individuality. 

ANDY ANDERSON is the Advisory Officer. His experience places him in 
the position of aiviti" advice to the lovelorn. 

BOB STRAKA is the Intervening Officer. At least his contemporary in 
Baltimore finds hard travel. 

ED TENNY furnishes the entertainment for the damsels of the fort. He is 
a circus. They say he is a scream — what else is he, if not? 

CHIEF BEATTY and MAC McGLONE are still in the ranks, altho they 
have been thrown out of Practice House occasionally. 

JOHN MORRIS is the Clean-Up-Kid. He can be seen around the Cor- 
rection House immediatelv after each meal.

Act I — The Gathering of the Clan 
Time — Any Friday Evening, 7 o'clock 
Place — The "Get-together" Room of the Castle. 

One by one the gallant nobles ride to the doors of the castle, park their 
gallant "Goulashes" and are admitted by no less personage than the Princess 
Herself. After they enter they are rewarded by the \ision of their chosen lady 
daintily "tripping" down the broad stairs (usually from 1.5 to 30 minutes after). 
From the stairs to the coveted place in the "Get-together room" is but a few 
scant steps — and then 

Act II — Same Place — one Hour Later 

While the three-legged, period phonograph grinds off "Somebody loves me" 
there is a general movement to positions of more comfort — then. . . . 

Act III — Same Place — 10.30 the Same Evening 

As the lights burn low the clanging of the great Bell of the castle — a rushing 
for the door — hurried partings, the rescue of the "Goulashes" and peace rests 
once more upon the hill after an e\entful (or une\entful?) evening. 

Author's note: — I have no other aim than to portray the admirable character 
of the work that the dramatic club has been doing throughout its past years and 
to express a sincere hope that the future will be as successful in the entertainment 
that its members afford.

RATERNITY is a combination of the two words 
Latin — "Frothy" — "sends forth beer" and "nity' 
"Nighty" — a word closely related to "Pajama"- 
Beer" — from which the first Greek letter fraternity- 
was originated. 

Closely allied to it, is the sister word "Sorority," a combination of 
the English feminine "Sore" and the French "risque." The original sorority 
" If-Pappa-Nu" was but recently rex'ived on the Campus. 

History tells us that Cain and Abel were the first Presidents of Ri\^al Frats, 
while King Solomon's wives founded the first sorority from which sprang our 
present daily newspapers. 

Among notable greek-letter fraternity men of the past are: — Napoleon, 
Wellington, Bismarck, Caesar and the Kaiser. 

In days of old, when Knights were bold 

And had a fight to settle, 
They donned their armor, took their swords 

And trusted it to metal, 
But in this free and peaceful age 

Whene'er one needs must scrap. 
He bares his trusty "Jeweled Pin" 

And leaves it to his "Frat." 


(Composed in the Y Hut in the cell of Convicts 10 and 11, on the fourth day 
of confinement after the Mid-nite presentation of "The Hunchback.") 

Our hair is gray, but not with years; 

Nor grew it white 

In a single night — but four days; 
As other sisters will tell — my dears. 
Our limbs are bowed, tho not with toil; 
But rusted with a vile repose: 
For we have been the S. C.'s spoil; 
And ours has been the fate of those 
To whcjm the goodly earth and air 
Are banned and barred — forbidden fair! 
We were eleven happy maids, 
Now accounted ele\en knaves. 


(Does the unbalanced mind need to apologize for its plagiarisms?) 

Apple Sauce 

What is more pleasant than to sit by an open fire and dream of the days gone 
by? To think of the old home and Mother, the old house with green blinds, the 
shrubbery in spring time? It all comes back to me. I remember how we hungry 
boys would dash in at meal times. I can see that old table, laden with its many 
wonderful dishes: and among these the one I liked so well, apple sauce — apple 
sauce as Mother made it, flavored with cinnamon and butter. Those days are 
gone forever! Here at College Park, apple sauce is ser\'ed, but not as Mother 
made it. It is served on Mondays and Fridays in Morrill Hall — although served 
in good English style, it is flavored with lemon. 



To A. 0. H. 

No other eyes have ere met mine 
That have had that deep, yet simple lure: 
Eyes maddening as age-old wine ; 
And yet so clear and pure. 

No other lips I ere did press 
Were moistened so with honey-dew, 
As parting thus in a caress, 
Mine own sank softly through. 

No other breast ere pillowed me 
With such romatic swell, 
As if within a restless sea 
A billow rose and fell. 

No other arms about me thrown 
So heavily on my shoulders bore, 
As if a life that stood alone 
Could stand alone, no more 

No other heart I ere have met 
That I have carved to earn. 
With all my soul I love her! 
But she does not give a durn.

What would a College Year Book 
be without Illustrations? 

Regardless of the brilliance of the 
editorial contributions; the witty com- 
ment; the interesting biographical 
sketches or the beauty of the printed 
book, a very big something would be 
missing were there no pictures. 

We made the Half-Tones and Line 
Plates in the Reveille — and for the 
Annuals of many other important 
schools and colleges.
