University: a place to stretcli the mind, try new things and answer age-old questions. It's a 
place where people can wear what they want, say what they want and be who they want. 
It's a place to learn more than dates and derivatives. It's a way to give the world a taste of 
the new generation. 

Tradition: those pieces of ttie past ttiat tiave made us wtio we are. It Is a word that brings to 
mind customs, beliefs and practices that have been handed down from generation to 
generation. Like unwritten laws, traditions have guided our thoughts and actions throughout 
our lives.

At the University of Maryland, tradition Is every wtiere. No one goes to an Important 
exam wittiout first rubbing Testudo's nose outside McKeldIn and everyone lias tieard ttiat 
the ghost of Marie Mount still plays the piano at night. Nowhere, however, Is tradition more 
obvious than In Byrd Stadium, where people are passed up the bleachers during football 
games and tanned by the sun In the spring. When the warm weather hits, Byrd Beach Is the 
place to be. 

But the traditions at Maryland extend even further. Beyond the red brick and columns are 
the people themselves, and It Is the tradition of expression that brings out the true Terrapin 
spirit. It Is the sharing and the caring, the giving and the feeling that show us for who we truly 


Y/B are people like Alexandra, a future Terrapin already becoming accustomed to the 
Maryland campus, and Joe, who brightens the days of those around him just by being 
himself. We are people like Sarah, reading about today while learning for tomorrow, and 
we are, each of us, very special.

The University of Maryland began as the Maryland Agricultural College In 1856, and It 
was not until a destructive fire In 1912 that the state gained control. In 1920, the College 
merged with the Maryland Medical College In Baltimore, becoming the University of 
Maryland. There are now five U. ofMD campuses around the state, of which College Park Is 
the largest. Today our campus Is spread over more than 1,300 acres of land, and there are 
more than 35,000 students enrolled. There are over 200 buildings and 300 different student 
groups. Maryland, you've come a long wayl

New Ticket 

Policy Has 



Football fans were un- 
pleasantly surprised this 
year when they learned 
about the new ticket policy 
that had been established 
to cut down the crowds at 
the game. 

Suddenly required to 

/ ' 



pick up football tickets, many students 
camped overnight outside the windows for 
the Penn State game, determined lo beat the 
University at its own game, and more than 
4,000 people were wailing by 730 a.m. 

Naturally, the result was a chaotic mob 
scene, and officials quickly revised the poli- 
cy for the next game. This time, students 
went for their tickets, on one of three days 
according to their last name, and the process 
was much more orderly. 

By the end of the season, outrage over the 
policy had died down almost completely. Stu- 
dents had plenty of time to get their tickets, 
and there was always some left over on game 

As for the desired effect at the games, the 
crowds seemed no thinner to the thousands 
of fans who proved that Terp spirit could not 
be broken by a little inconvenience.

"Back In Time" 

Homecoming - the high point 
of the fall semester. Between 
the preparations and the par- 
ties, who had time for classes? 

Well, actually, almost every- 
one did, but it wasn't easy. The 
festivities were numerous and, 
for most, sleep was hard to 
come by during Homecoming. 

The unofficial theme for the 
week was spirit, and everyone 
felt it. "Back in Time" was the 
actual theme for '85, and 
shirts, floats and banners pro- 
claimed it across the entire 
campus. From the float build- 
ers to the football players, all 
had a chance to be a part of 

Homecoming in one v^ay or another. 

For many, the week led to new friendships 
as a result of hours of planning and meeting, a 
permanent reminder of Homecoming in the 
weeks and years ahead. For freshmen, Home- 
coming offered a way to get involved in a 

major campus activity for the first time, truly 
making them feel at home at the University. 





A Night For 

Pranks And 


Just because one was 
too too old for trick- 
or-treating didn't mean 
October 31 became 
just another night of 
the year. Indeed, every 
Halloween, campus 
ghouls and goblins left 
their dorms and apart- 
ments and haunted the 
streets of College Park 
and Georgetown. 

Fun and thrill seeking 
students who stayed on 
campus participated in 
many activities 

throughout the night. 
Various communities 
hosted Halloween par- 
ties and scary movies 

'Tis The 

Every December, people around the 
world celebrate some of the most special 
holidays of the year. On the University of 
Maryland campus, holiday observances 
and traditions were no exception. 

Early in the month, dorm rooms and 
apartments were brightened by the light 
of candles as the eight days of Hanukkah 
were celebrated. Jewish students re- 
cieved menorahs and dreidles from the 
Hillel Jewish Student Center, and many 
exchanged gifts with their friends. 

Towards the end of the month, small 
trees and bright decorations appeared 
across campus as other students pre- 
pared to celebrate Christmas. Carols 
were sung and parties were held while, 
once again, gifts were exchanged by

free of charge to costumed stu- 
dents. The Greek community 
also threw parties and created 
elaborate funhouses for the es- 
pecially daring. 

No four years in College Park 
could be considered complete 
without a Halloween trip to 
Georgetown. All along M 
Street, costumes portraying ev- 
erything from radishes to con- 
traceptives could be seen. Full 
of masked partiers, George- 
town was transformed into a 
unique Mardi gras. Many par- 
ticipated in competitions for 
best outfit, danced, drank and 
complained about the inflated 
holiday cover charges. 

While more people woke up 
with "bags over their heads" 
than bags of candy, Halloween 
remained enjoyable through- 
out one's college years.

Breaking Away 

All papers, books and notes were left be- 
hind as throngs of students fled South to the 
spring break capital of the country ... Ft. 
Lauderdalel Hot weather, parties and relax- 
ation on the beach brought smiles to every- 
one's face. 

When students returned for classes fol- 
lowing a week of pre-summer fun, suntanned 
faces were everywhere. Stories of different 
clubs, beaches and hotels were shared end- 
lessly, and photos never seemed to stop 
coming. Memories remained in the forms of 
t-shirts, photos, buttons and beach towels. 

Whichever route was followed - Florida,

and family - spring break was enjoyed thor- 
oughly by all.

Starting Over 

Well, it's almost here . . . graduation. The end of our college careers. It seems like only yesterday 
that we first stepped foot on this campus. Everything seemed much bigger then — the dorms, the 
buildings, even the parking lots. We have all changed so much over the past few years. We've 
laughed a lot and cried a lot. It was all part of growing. 

Now, suddenly it seems, we're at the end. There will be no more University of Maryland finals, no 
more College Park happy hours. Long, deep roommate discussions will be more difficult once the 
miles act as barriers; and parties will be much different without the same old crowd. 

College brought with it both good times and bad, but they all seem to blend together as the end 
approaches. Early morning classes will soon be remembered wistfully as we enter the daily grind of 
the working world; and afternoon coffee breaks will hardly be able to replace the fun of watching 
the daily soaps. No more will we be able to head for Georgetown in the middle of the week or the 
Route on a Thursday night. Soon, the traumatic and exciting moments of college will all be just 

Graduation is viewed with mixed feelings. There is sadness at the thought of saying goodbye to 
the many friends we've made, and there is joy in the knowlege that it is finally almost over. Most of 
us are also a little afraid. There is a whole new world ahead of us, and we know very little about 
what our lives will soon be like. 

There is also new excitement, however, at the thought of the challenges that now face us. We 
are moving on. This it is! Soon we will be starting new careers, new lives as adults. Now is our 
chance to make names for ourselves, to show the world who we are, who we have become. 

Yes, our days at the University of Maryland are numbered now, and there seems to be so much 
left to do. All of a sudden we are remembering the many places we never got to go, the many things 
we never got to do. With these feelings of regret, however, comes a new realization. We have our 
entire lives ahead of us, and we will never be without things to do. 

The end of an era is upon us now, an era we will never forget. Our college days are forever en- 
graved in our minds and in our hearts. And as the end fast approaches, do not forget — the begin- 
ning is not far behind. 



So Much To Do 

Bringing People 

Together For 

Fun And 


Bored at the University of l\Aaryland? Im- 
possible! in College Park, there was always 
something happening for students to get in- 
volved in. 

Many activities were organized by the vari- 
ous campus student groups for the enjoy- 
ment of their peers. From the Glass Onion 
Concerts, held regularly in the Stamp Union, 
and student-run theatrical productions to stu- 
dent organized ski trips, there was a wide 
selection of events planned by students and 
for students throughout the year. 

These events involved a lot of time and 
effort on the part of the organizers, but the 
success in the end made the effort worth- 
while. The activities provided a chance for 
those who liked organizing to do so, as well 
as a chance for those who just liked to partic- 
ipate to get involved. 

There were also activities sponsored by 
University governing organizations. The com- 
munity area councils, for example, organized 
many events during Spirit Semester for dorm 
residents. In addition, activities such as the 
Stamp Union's All-Niter, the freshman convo- 
cation, the Terrapin Trot and the many Home- 
coming events were fantastic ways for stu- 
dents to mix, mingle and get their minds off 
their books for awhile. 

With just a little bit of effort. College Park 
students could find many exciting events to 
participate In. Whatever their interests, stu- 
dents easily kept themselves busy with cam- 
pus activities.

More than 100 volunteers Irom campus agricultur- 
al organizations and departments joined together to 
create events intended to teach visitors about every- 
thing Irom Maryland's agricultural history to sheep 
shearing, entertaining them at the same lime. 

One educational event demonstrated a wool 
weaving technique, "Spinning in the Grease," in 
which wool was gathered into list-sized clumps to be 
spun into continuous strands. 

Nearby, a group of children squealed in delight as 
they touched the skin ol Swizzle, a boa constrictor. 

One ol the highlights ol the day was a demonstra- 
tion ol the campus Equestrian Drill Team. Amidst 


cheers and applause, members pranced around the 
ring, showing their skill with ease. 

Music provided by the country rock band Smokey 
River Breakdown, Irom Cumberland. Md., played in 
the background all day, and their loot-stomping mu- 
sic lloated through the air to everyone's ears. Even 
the cows kicked up their heels as they were put 
through their paces in a dairy cattle showing and 
Ming contest. 

Other highlights ol the day included a straw ball 
tossing contest, a dunk tank and a petting zoo. 

Whether meeting the Maryland State Apple 
Queen, going on a haywagon or a pony ride, or 
viewing the bee exhibit, everyone enjoyed the day. 




Monday, April 22. marked the begin- 
ning ol the 16th Annual Earth Awareness 
Week, recognized by the University with 
lour days ol scheduled events. 

The Earth Day lair was held on Horn- 
bake Mall, with more than 20 on- and oil- 
campus organizations participating. 
Groups included the Environmental Con- 
servation Organization, the Forestry Club. 
Zero Population Growth and the National 
Wildlile Federation. 

The turnout was large and many stu- 
dents stopped between classes to chat 
with Woodsy Owl. a guest at the lair, and 
to look at displays. In addition to selling 
their wares and handing out tree inlorma- 
tion. many groups attended lor the pur- 
pose ol getting Iree publicity lor their

many people eagerly approached the 
groups that dealt with issues that they

Attack On The Mall 

Art Attack, Spring 1985 

McKeldin Mai J was transformed 
from a quiet, grassy area into a multi- 
media extravaganza during the Sec- 
ond Annual Art Attack celebration 
on May 1. 

Sponsored by Student Entertain- 
ment Enterprises, the day-long festi- 
val was dedicated to the apprecia- 
tion of art in its many forms, and 
thousands of spectators were treated 
to demonstrations of everything 
from dance to sculpture to karate. 

Entertainment was continuous 
throughout the day, and bands and 
acts of all kinds performed on a spe- 
cial stage set up for the occasion. 
Music ranged from folk to new 
wave, ensuring that there was some- 
thing for everyone, and the casts of 
"Cabaret" and "Damn Yankees" 
provided a special treat, singing 
some of the songs from the shows. In 
between the musical performances, 
other activity took place, including 
live broadcasts by WMUC and dem- 
onstrations by the Gymkana Troupe 
and the Medieval Mercenary Militia. 

One of the day's main attractions 
was the "Mousetrap Kinematics" 
display created by an architecture 
class that focused on three-dimen- 
sional design. Each of the eight 
large-scale "task accomplishing de- 
vices" was set up to perform a sim- 
ple task in a complex way. The Cab- 
bage Patch Killer, for example, 
began with a ball being tossed 
through a hoop and rolling down a 
ramp to trigger the release of a por- 
table carriage. After a series of simi- 
lar reactions had occurred, a final 
string was released, causing a guillo- 
tine blade to fall and chop off the 
head of the Cabbage Patch doll ly- 
ing beneath it. "The Great Ameri- 
can Hot Dog" was another inge- 
nious device. Its goal was to squirt 
ketchup on a hot dog. "Wig Wash- 
er," "Fun and Games" and "The 
Eliminator" were all equally 

Numerous booths and exhibits 
were set up around the mall, as well, 
attracting a constant stream of 
browsers. Artists of all kinds had 
come to display their wares, ranging 
from candy sold by the Mortar 
Board Honor Society to artwork 

from the West Gallery. 

Held under sunny skies. Art At- 
tack was a huge success. In the 
words of one inspired student, "It 

was a celebration that could have 
gone on forever. "

Beaux-Arts Blues 

To many, the new alcohol ban on campus 
hardly seemed to be a cause lor celebration, 
but, lor those attending the 15th annual 
Beaux- Arts ball March 30, that's exactly what 
it was. 

"Prohibition Blues" was a fitting theme for 
the 1985 ball, bringing the dry days of the 
'20s back to life at a time when alcohol had, 
once again, become forbidden. Held in the 
school of architecture's two-story atrium, 
more than 600 students and alumni joined in 
the festivities. 

The award for best bay design was won by 
R.T.K.L. Associates, one of the numerous

professional architectural lirms 
in volved in the ball 's planning, 
lor Rosanne's Tea and Koflee 
Lounge. Disguised as a serene 
eatery during the day, the 
Lounge became an active 
speakeasy at night, filled with 
playing musicians and danc- 
ing couples. 

Original and creative cos- 
tumes were also recognized, 
and the award for "Best Archi- 
tectural Costume" went to a 
student wearing a foam-core 
headdress of the St. Louis Ca- 
thedral. A pair of beer bottles 
were awarded the prize for 
"Best Couple." 

Rockabilly rhythm and blues 
played in the background con- 
tinuously, courtesy of the Up- 
town Rhythm Kings on their 
East Coast Tour. Their fast- 
paced music, interspersed 
with slower Chicago-style 
blues, kept the audience on its 
feet throughout the evening. 

Hard work went into making 
the ball a success, beginning 
with the initial plans in the fall. 
A theme had to be chosen, a 
band needed to be selected, 
and a design competition had 
to be developed and execut- 
ed. All of these requirements, 
and more, were met. and the 
reluctance of students to leave 
at the end of the night clearly 
demonstrated the ball's

"^hen Joined, these words have an entirely 
different connotation to college students 

Spring break usually began on a Friday in 
mid-March The Journey was one massive 
migration SOUTH! The general area covered 
was Route 95 from College Park to various 
points in Florida. 

There were five components to spring 
break, the first and most important of which 
was money. Most earned it through hard 
work. If you had nice parents, they were also 
a resource. Money was the key factor In 
obtaining lodging, food and transportation. 

Your mode of transportation could have 
been a car, van, camper, train or plane, but 
most people chose a car, piling in as many 
people as possible. 

Lodging most likely consisted of cramming 
as many people as was feasible into a hotel 
room meant for two. 

And food — well thank goodness for 
happy hour munches and McDonalds! 

The last and most necessary component 
was good friends This unique experience 
would not have been the same without 
friends to share it with. 

For us, spring break began at Prince 
George's Hall Cramming five people plus 
luggage into our 75 Toyota Celica, we 
headed for Florida. If we weren't friends yet, 
we all knew we would be soon! 

After stops for lunch and gas, we finally hit 
95 around WO p.m., and we settled back for 
a long 18 hour drive. 

Everything ran smoothly — no fights, no 
traffic Jams — until the car broke down 
outside Savannah, Go. Eventually we were 
towed to Hardeyville, SC, and there we 
invented a new brand of motel . . . a 
parking lot Finding no room at the inn, we 
slept in the car and woke the next morning

Off And Pedaling 

The Second Annual Campus Criterium Bicy- 
cle Race was held April 28, attracting more than 
300 riders to the University of Maryland from 
around the country. 

The riders, including more than 31 campus 
students, were divided into groups ranging 
from young juniors to licensed seniors based on 
their riding abilities and experience. 

Then the race began and they were sent on 
their way, speeding around an exciting 1.6 mile 
course. Racers were taken around Byrd Stadi- 
um, up a sweeping turn and through a slightly 
twisting climb up Stadium Drive to the finish 
line. Depending on the cyclist's classification, 
the course was made up of four to twenty-five

developed by the 1985 Campus Criterium Co- 
ordinating Committee, which wanted to "ex- 
pand the existing Campus Criterium from a one 
day event to a two day staged event, " accord- 
ing to the Tour of Maryland program. 

All together, a total of $4,C00 worth of prizes 
were given. Winners were chosen from each 
category of the bike race, and five overall Tour 
of Maryland winners were chosen as well. 

In addition, each bike racer had the opportu- 
nity to win other prizes during the race. These 
prizes, called primes, were awarded for special 
sprints within the race to the finish line. 

Whether competing or observing, all en- 
joyed the day, and plans for the 1986 Second 
Annual Tour of Maryland were already in the

Terrapin Trot 

More than 300 runners showed up to test 
their stamina Oct. 20 for the sixth annual 
Terrapin Trot around the U. of MD campus. 

Sponsored by the Stamp Union, the race 
began around 9:00 a.m. despite slick weath- 
er conditions, and runners took off, following 
the winding course past buildings and trees. 

A lOK race, the Terrapin Trot gave men 
and women a chance to win prizes while 
running just for the fun of it. Overall winners 
for male and females received 10-speed bi- 
cycles, the grand prizes, during an awards 
ceremony after the race. Radios were given 
to the first place winners of each separate 
age group, and certificates were given to 
second and third place winners finishers in 
each group. 

For the rest of the runners, the reward for 
running came from the satisfaction of the 
finish itself Mike Kline, a junior pre-veteri- 
nary major and a two year Terrapin Trot 
participant, summed it up best when he said, 
"I really just enjoy being a part of a Maryland 
tradition. "

''Once Upon A Dream'' 




The University of Maryland Gymkana 
Troupe presented its 39th Annual Gym- 
nastic Exhibition, titled "Once Upon A 
Dream, " on March 29th and 30th in Cole 
Field House. 

As it has done every year since it was 
founded in 1955, the troupe used the 
show as an invitation to take note of the 
wonders gymnastics has to offer as a sport, 
both competitively and recreationally, 
and to enhance the development of each 
of its members. 

Aimed primarily at a young audience, 
the two hour presentation proved to be 
entertaining to all former children as well. 
A vaulting routine, involving all Gymkana 
members, opened the show, capturing 
the audience's attention from the start. 

All interests were represented as rou- 
tines ranged from advanced tumbling 
demonstrations to colorful ribbon dances, 
and performers were energetic and skill- 
ful in each. Some of the more unusual 
presentations included a chair balancing 
act, ladder ballet, and mixed doubles 

The 'dream" theme was present in all 
aspects of the show, from the costumes to 
the lighting to the humorous skits between 
gymnastic routines. Troupe members 
sang, told stories, and role-played in acts 
designed to evoke giggles and cheers 
from the kiddies watching and, hopefully. 

to promote an interest in gymnastics as a 
fun and entertaining, as well as competi- 
tive sport. 

■ One favorite act was the Raggedy Ann 
and Andy comedy routine on the parallel 
bars. Their efforts to conquer the parallels 
resulted in several splats onto the mats 
below, bringing gales of laughter, shouts, 
and muffled, mock criticism from the 

The music throughout the show was up- 
beat and contemporary and creative 
clothing and gestures were often added to 
match the routines to the songs in the 
background. Special effects, such as a 
mirrored ball and clouds of smoke added 
just the right touch to the dreamlike 

The 1985 Gymkana president, Carlos 
Menendez, introduced the troup mem- 
bers and thanked their coach. Dr. Moseph 
Murray, for ' 'getting the show on the road 
. . . and helping to create a rewarding 
season. " 

Retiring Gymkana director and coach 
Dr. George Kramer was also honored 
during the show. Kramer, currently Act- 
ing Dean of the College of Health, Physi- 
cal Education and Recreation, was a long- 
time member and former Gymkana 
president. This year's performance was 
dedicated to Dr. Kramer and the "ideals 
and philosophies with which he tried to 

help" the members of Gymkana.

Something For Everyone 

Talent Contest 

Hidden talents oi all kinds came out of the closet and into the 
spotlight at the Third Annual University Talent Contest in the Stamp 
Union on April 29. 

Beginning with the rock sounds of No Stress and ending with The 
Spare Tires' comic song and dance routine, the show provided some- 
thing for everyone. 

Performing m the first act and capturing the first place prize in the 
group competition were the Reverb Brothers. Comprised of Paul 
Conte, Bill Demain and Ron Baron, the group demonstrated their 
musical talent with their original songs. 

First place m the individual competition went to Walter Aldred for 
his witty monologue in which he described the problems he had been 
faced with as a 'boy-next-door" type. His troubles had been caused, 
he told the audience, by his being afflicted with 'PMS, the Protective 
Mother Syndrome, " and a howdy doody complex. 

In the group competition, second place went to Paul Erskine, Tom 
MacDonald and Mike Garvey as The Spare Tires, who finished third in 
the 1984 talent contest; and third place went to Rick Holtz, Sehwan 
Kim and Joe Kramer for their musical performace using acoustic 

Helena Guertler captured second place in the solo competition, 
dressed in an authentic Ukrainian costume and performing on the 
unusual Bandura, the Ukrainian national instrument. Third place in 
this category was won by Ken Isman, a folk singer, for his original 
performance of "In Your Love f Found Me. " 

An added attraction to the show was Ken Thomas, master of ceremo- 
nies for the second consecutive year. Between performances and 
before the winners were announced, Thomas kept the audience 
laughing with his comic routines. 

Trophies for the winners were donated by the University Book 
Center, and cash prizes of $75 for individuals and $100 for groups 
were given. The winners were also given time to perform at the Art 
Attack celebration on May 1. 

The show was sponsored by the fnterfraternity Council, Resident 
Halls Association, Student Entertainment Enterprises, and Student 
Government Association.

'Come Alive In '85!" 


Spirit Semester, those lun-IiUed 
months of competition and comra- 
derie especially lor dormers, began 
in January and lasted until May. 

"Come Alive in '85" was the 
theme this year, and residents did 
just that as event alter event encour- 
aged them all to get involved. The 
prizes, of course, added even more 
reasons to participate, since every 
student wanted a renovated lounge 
or unit barbecue. 

There were many all-campus 
events throughout the semester, in- 
cluding a Goodwill "junk" drive 
and a t -shirt design contest. A spell- 
ing bee, new to the competition, 
added intellectual stimulation, and a 
banner contest at a basketball game 
displayed the artistic talents of stu- 
dents above the seats in Cole 
Field House. 

One of the more entertaining 
campus-wide events was Almost 
Anythmg Goes (AAG), held March 
9 in Ritchie Coliseum. Workmg in 
teams, representatives from each 

floor or unit spun on baseball bats, rolled peanuts and passed 
oranges. For the glutton, that special person from each team desig- 
nated to eat an entire meal in record time, AAG was a somewhat 
nauseating experience! Everyone there, however, had a good time 
and each team earned points for their floor or unit at the same time. 
The AAG winning team was comprised of residents on LaPlata 4 
and Ellicott 4. 

The week of April 19 to 27, known as Spirit Week, was the high 
point of Spirit Semester. Each community developed its own theme 
around which numerous activities were planned. Most communities 
had some sort of Olympics and boat cruise, and all participated m at 
least one picnic. Not all events, however, were that ordinary, and 
each community was, in some way, unique 

Leonard town. North Hill and South Hill communities joined to- 
gether for Aprilfest as their contribution to Spirit Week. Among 
their scheduled events were a bench press competition and a 
casino night 

Some of the more unusual activities were planned by Cambridge 
community during their week of fun entitled Cambridge Olympics 
Famous couples were everywhere the night of the Cambridge 
Couplets contest for which guys joined together with girls and 
created elaborate costumes. A mattress pile-up and a sleeping bag 
strip were among other events planned by Cambridge organizers 

A lip sync competition was among the highlights of Denton s 
Sun f est, and students masterfully imitated well-known artists, using 
such items as jugs and broomsticks as their instruments. Denton also 
sponsored activities such as a scavenger hunt and a Rocky Horror 
night during the week

Ellicott community had an expanded version of the Olympics competition during their Beach Week festivities, and athletic .1 
events were held throughout the week. Another of Ellicott 's more interesting activities was the video dance during which ■

TKE Olympians Are Special 

The spirit of competition was captured in Byrd 
Stadium once again during the 3td Annual Special 
Olympics, sponsored by Tau Kappa Epsilon frater- 
nity and Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. Highly 
praised as the only student-run event of its kind in 
the country, the games were participated in by 
mentally retarded citizens from the Washington 
Metropolitan area. 

Following opening remarks by Maryland foot- 
ball coach Bobby Ross, the competition officially 
began with the Special Olympics oath, and a cheer 
went up as the words were read: "Let me win, but 
if I cannot win, let me be brave in the 
attempt. " 

Throughout the day athletes went from one 
event to the next, accompanied by student volun- 
teers, who shouted words of encouragement as 
their charges struggled towards a finish line or with 
a ball. The happiness shown on the faces of the 
athletes as they were pinned with ribbons made 
clear to the buggers that their presence was

In addition to the athletic events, which includ- 
ed such things as wheelchair races and Softball 
throws, a number of special events were held. Soc- 
cer and frisbee clinics were available and perfor- 
mances by the Redskinettes and the University of 
Maryland Gymkana Troupe were among the day's 
many highlights. 

During the closing ceremonies, Congressman 
Steny Hoyer said the day's success was a "reflection 
on the University. " A Maryland alumnus, Hoyer 
emphasized that hosting the Special Olympics was 
something to be proud of 

Whether an athlete, a hugger or just a spectator, 
the Special Olympics were an emotional experi- 
ence. The courage and joy of the participants 
would not be forgotten.

Maryland Dance Theatre 

Talent and energy were in abundance at 
the Maryland Dance Theatre's original per- 
formance in Tawes Theatre March 30. 

The evening began with "Simple Sympho- 
ny," an abstract, flowing piece, choreo- 
graphed by University associate dance pro- 
fessor Anne Warren. Moving freely, seven 
performers danced in this work to the music 
of Benjamin Britten. 

Next, "The Party Game" told the story of 
a man targeted as a social and sexual victim 
at a party by a group of thrill -seeking sophis- 
ticates. Choreographed by campus dance 
professor Larry Warren, the man moved 
through the tension -filled piece as an out- 
cast, although romance and socialization sur- 
rounded him. 

The action -packed "Agitation" was an- 
other abstract work, with dancers quivering 
and shaking turbulently in a seemingly end- 
less fight against some invisible power. The 
vigor and force in their motions was fatigu- 
ing even for the viewer. 

"From the Archives: Social Dances, Vol. 
XXI (The Tango), " was the last piece in the 
show, providing a modern look back at the 
dances of our time. Again, sexual undertones 
ran throughout the work as dancers demon- 
strated the tango, following the instructions 
of an unidentified voice. 

Asa whole, the performance was extreme- 
ly enjoyable. The unusual works presented by 
the troupe of students and faculty proved to 
be a unique form of entertainment for every- 
one present.

The Ultimate Gamble 

"Guys and Dolls," a lively, fun -loving 
musical based on a book by Jo Sweding and 
Abe Burrows, was presented by Dining Ser- 
vices in the Terebac Room Dinner Theatre 
Sept. 19 thru October 12. 

Set in the heart of New York City, the 
show told the story of two no -good gam- 
blers and the attempts of their ladies to get 
them to settle down. 

As Nathan Detroit, Don Carter was the 
king of New York City craps, an occupation 
frowned upon by Miss Adelaide, his fiancee 
of 14 years. Ignoring the pleas of Adelaide, 
played by Susan Bell, Nathan prided himself 
on being in charge of the oldest, floating, 
professional craps game in New York. 

Eager to set up a game for visiting gambler 
giants but unable to find a place for it, Na- 
than turned to Sky Masterson, played by Eric 
Stewart for help. Known for his unusual 
gambling habits, Sky agreed to a bet with 
Nathan for $1,000, the amount Nathan need- 
ed to reserve a garage for the big game. 
Taking a lady to Havana for dinner proved to 
be more of a challenge than Sky expected 
when the lady Nathan chose for the bet 
turned out to be Sarah Brown, the local 
missionary played by Jill Wilkoff 

Naturally, Sarah refused Sky's dinner pro- 
posal at first, but when he said he would fill 
her missionary with sinners for her big meet- 
ing in exchange, she reluctantly agreed. 

Continuing along these highly entertaining 
lines, the show was thoroughly enjoyable. 
Eventually, all ended happily, with Sarah and 
Sky falling in love and marrying and Ade- 
laide fmally becoming Mrs. Nathan Detroit. 

The music and song was, without a doubt, 
the best part of the evening. Conducted by 
musical director Ken Weiss, the orchestra 
was terrific, never seeming to miss even a 
single note. As a whole, the singing of the 
cast was great, but the voices of Sarah, Ade- 
laide, Sky and Aunt Eileen, Sarah's mission- 
ary relative, came across as especially 

As Aunt Eileen, Sue Murphy was very 
good. Other members of the cast deserved to 
be mentioned as well, especially Nicely- 
Nicely Johnson, played by Rernard Steele, 
and Harry the Horse, played by Brad Rhoads. 

The choreography, by Melanie Metzger, 
was simple, but adequate, and the show 
would not have been the same without the 
song and dance routines performed by Ade- 
laide and the girls at the Hot Box nightclub. 

For a small dinner theatre, this musical was 
done exceptionally well. The cast and crew 
were not large, but the talent was there, and, 
together, they put on a wonderful show.

The Bible Vs. Darwin 

The eternal controversy over God versus the theory 
of evolution surrounding the creation of man was the 
focus of the University Theatre's spring drama, "In- 
herit the Wind, " presented February 28 thru March 
9- Written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, the 
play was based on the famous Scopes "Monkey" trial 
of 1925, in which a young schoolteacher was accused 
of committing a crime when he taught Darwin's the- 
ory to his students, 

Bertram Cates, played by Bryan Ash by, saw nothing 
wrong with teaching this theory; however, the God- 
fearing citizens in the town of Hillsboro saw it as 
heretical and threw him in jail. Refusing even the plea 
of his beloved Rachael, played by Mary Lechter, Cates 
staunchly defended his right to believe Darwin's ideas 
and would not agree that he had made a mistake. 
Thus, the prospect of a heated trial became inevitable. 

When the news was made public that the well- 
known, Bible -thumping Matthew Harrison Brady 
would be the prosecuting attorney, the town was 
thrown into an excited frenzy preparing for his arrival. 
A three-time losing presidential candidate played by 
Steve Aaronson, Brady expected the trial to revive his 
reputation as Champion of the Common Man by 
allowing him to show his support for a society cen- 
tered around religion and the church. 

Until the arrival of Richard Kessler as E.K. Horn- 
beck, Cates thought he was doomed. Hornbeck, a 
cynical reporter from Baltimore, sent his spirits soar- 
ing, though, by announcing that Henry Drummond, 
played by Douglas Farrow, would act as counsel for 
the defense. A lawyer widely known for his success in 
the courtroom, Drummond's main concern was de- 
fending each individual's right to think for himself 

The trial that followed was dramatic and packed 
with emotion. The two attorneys' strong personalities 
clashed repeatedly as each tried to present his case 
most convincingly. The climax was reached, though, 
when Drummond called Brady as a witness and turned 
the town's idol into a laughingstock. Using Brady's 


own words against him, Drummond was able to make 
his point by making Brady look foolish. 

In the end, although the jury found Gates guilty, the 
judge sentenced him only to pay a fine of $100. 
Following procedure, the judge denied Brady formal 
court time to make a few closing remarks and ad- 
journed the court, saying that those who wished to 
hear Brady speak could stay. When his speech was 
ignored by most everyone, Brady's agitation and hu- 
miliation became so great that he collapsed. Soon 
after, the judge announced that Brady had died. ^ 

Technically, Brady had won the case; but theoreti- ^ 
cally, the point is still being argued. 

Numerous minor characters added greatly to the 
overall quality of the play. Mark Farinas, as Reverend 
Jeremiah Brown, was stern and fearsome as the town 
minister; and Neil Churgin, as the mayor, periodically 
broke the tension in the town with his unintentional 
humor Karin E. Pusey, as Mrs. Brady, and Tonya 
Fogarty, as Mrs. Krebs, were also superb in their roles. 

The set, designed by Thomas F. Donahue, was 
amazingly realistic. The three-dimensional shop win- 
dows were filled with merchandise seemingly waiting 
to be bought, and the techniques used by lighting 
designer Diane L. Ferry served to enhance the quaint 
atmosphere permeating the small town. 

From the courtroom tension to the hot summer 
weather, even the most minute detail was given atten- 
tion in this play, directed by Rudolph E. Pugliese. By 
combining talent from virtually all areas of produc- 
tion, the University Theatre successfully brought this 
weighted and meaningful play to life.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame 

Professional baseball returned to Wash- 
ington during the Terabac Room Dinner 
Theatre's production of "Damn Yankees," 
a musical about the old Washington Sena- 
tors, April 19th thru 27th. Based on the book 
by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop, the 
show told the story of a diehard Senators fan 
in the mid 1930s and his burning desire to see 
the team capture the baseball pennant. 

In fact, Joe Boyd, a middle -aged insurance 
salesman played by Douglas Cooley, was so 
eager to see this dream come true that he 
made a deal to sell his soul to the devil in 
exchange for a chance to help the team win. 
As his part of the deal, Mr. Applegate, the 
devil, promised to turn Joe into a 22-year old, 
spectacular baseball player, who would lead 
the Senators to victory. Just in case he decid- 
ed he wanted to return to his old life, though, 
Joe argued for an escape clause, and Mr. 
Applegate agreed. Unbeknownst to Joe, 
however, the escape clause was only to be 
good until the night before the big game. 

After performing the transformation. Mr. 
Applegate spoke to the Senators manager 
about Joe, who had become Joe Hardy, 
played by Barry Johnson. Saying that Joe was 
from Hannibal, Missouri, the devil convinced 
the manager that the new, mystery player 
would help the Senators win the pennant, and 
Joe became a member of the team. 

Meanwhile, trying to compensate for her 
husband's unexplained disappearance, Joe's 
wife, played by Suzanne Cohen, took in a 
boarder to make the house seem less empty. 
Little did she know that the boarder, Joe

r um 


Hardy, actually was her husband! 

Naturally, Applegate did not like Joe's 
new living conditions, since they made Joe 
miss his former life, and he forced Joe to 
move. In addition, he introduced Joe to Lola, 
played by Katherine Steel. Lola's job. as a 
seductive "homewrecker," was to make Joe 
forget about the past. Instead, the plan back- 
fired, and Lola fell in love with Joe. wanting 
only to help him. 

As a result, Lola worked against Apple - 
gate, helping to clear up other events that the 
devil created to cause trouble for Joe. and it 
was because of her that Joe was finally able 
to play in the big game. By drugging Apple - 
gate into a sound sleep, Lola caused him to 
sleep through the night Joe's escape clause 
went into effect, and Joe was able to make 
the winning catch moments before Apple- 
gate arrived to change him back to his former 

All ended well, with Joe winning the pen- 
nant for the Senators and then happily re- 
turning to his wife, foiling the devil in both 

The music and song throughout the play 
was wonderful. Musical director Ken Weiss 
and choreographer Laurie Sentman created 
entertaining and talented numbers that added 
greatly to the production as a whole.

served to enhance the overall mood on the

Vaudeville And Burlesque At UM 

The Terabac Room Dinner theatre began its spring season 
Feb. 8 to 23 with the lively musical, "A Funny Thing Hap- 
pened on the Way to the Forum. " Based on a play by Roman 
Plautus, the show was a tasteful blend of burlesque and 

Tom Deyes, as Pseudolus, opened the show, pondering his 
status as a slave in ancient Rome. Pseudolus longed to be free 
and realized that, for this to happen, he needed to please his 
master. Hero, by finding him the girl of his dreams. 

Lycus, the male madame at a house of pleasure and a friend 
of Pseudolus, offered a solution. Lycus, played by David Sand- 
son, talked Pseudolus into buying Philia, a beautiful but unin- 
telligent courtesan virgin played by Jami Lingle, for Hero. 

Because Philia was so beautiful, however, she was also being 
pursued by the famed warrior Miles Gloriosus, thus creating a 
new dilemma. In addition, when Pseudolus arrived with Philia at 
Hero's house. Hero's father, Senex, was captured by her looks; 
and he, too, began vying for her attention in hopes of having 
one last fling. 


Aware of the threat that Miles ' love for Philia posed. 
Pseudolus tried to trick him into believing Philia had 
died from a dreaded plague. The mock funeral that 
followed, along with Miles' discovery of its falsity, led 
to chaos. 

Eventually, all ended in happiness. Miles learned he 
was Philia 's brother and gave her to Hero. In turn. 
Pseudolus was granted his freedom. 

Confusing.'' Yes. but the bewildering maze of events 
was interrupted periodically by refreshing bursts of 
song, and all were captured by the music of the band. 

Angela Burgess, costumes designer, was successful in 
her creation of an authentic Roman wardrobe, com- 
prised of an unusual assortment of leotards, togas. 
gowns and wreaths: and the set. too. added to the mood 
of the show. 

Overall, the show was a hit. The entire cast and crew 
worked together to present a spirited and intriguing 
show that left the audience smiling from ear to ear.

Come To The Cabaret 

"Cabaret," a thought -provoking and somewhat 
unsettling drama about life in Berlin during the Nazi 
rise to power, was presented by the University Theatre 
April 25 thru May 4 in Tawes Theatre. 

Clifford Bradshaw, played by Kevin J. Ferguson, 
went to Berlin looking for inspiration for a novel and, 
instead, fell in love with a decadent cabaret girl. Sally 
Bowles, played by Laura Whitmore, was a spirited, 
flirtatious fellow American and when, after meeting 
Cliff at the Kit Kat Klub, she presented herself in his 
boarding house with suitcases in band, it was not long 
before he allowed her to stay. 

For a while, the couple lived in a euphoric world of 
their own, oblivious to their surroundings; but their 
happiness was soon shattered by Cliffs increasing 
awareness of the Nazi threat. When the love between 
their friends Herr Schultz and Fraulein Schneider was 
destroyed because of the elderly shopkeeper's Jewish 
background. Cliff understood that danger and de- 
struction were not far away. 

Sally, however, was unwilling to face this reality and 
turned to the illusory world of the Kit Kat Klub for 
comfort, where life was a cabaret and nothing could 
destroy the party. 

In the end. Cliff left Berlin without Sally, unable to 
make her see beyond the glittery cabaret to real life 
and its harsh truths. 

The final scene showed Cliff on a train leaving 
Germany. Sitting back in his seat, Cliff turned to the 
first page of his book, finally sprung from true inspira- 
tion. Telling the story of the life he had just left 
behind, Cliff began: "There was a cabaret and a master 
of ceremonies ..." 

Aside from the two lead roles, other characters in 
"Cabaret" were magnificent. The master of ceremo- 
nies, played by Ken Jackson, excellently and chillingly 
added to the carefree deception of the cabaret world; 
and Fraulein Schneider, played by Halle Eavelyn 
Schecter, was marvelous as a woman totn between her 
love for Schultz and fear of Nazi reprisals against those 
who associated with Jews. Herr Schultz himself played 
by Bryan Ashby, was outstanding. His performance as 
a frightened man wanting nothing more than a few.

final moments of happiness brought tears to the eves 
of many. 

The music and song in the show was also excep- 
tional. The voices of the entire cast were wonderful, 
and the songs themselves were memorable. Together, 
musical director Ronald Tymus and dance choreogra- 
pher Diane Hamilton did an excellent job. 

The set was extremely well designed, thanks to 
scene designer Thomas F. Donahue, and, combined 
with the superb lighting designed by Diane L. Ferry, it 
greatly enhanced the show as a whole. 

The costumes, designed by Dennis A. Parker, were 
elaborate and fitting, even, at times, quite risque. The 
acts by the Kit Kat Club would have suffered greatly 
had the sparkling, gaudy apparel not been present. 

Directed and staged by Ronald J. OLeary, "Caba- 
ret" was a fitting conclusion to the spring season. 
From beginning to end, the show was superb.

The Seduction Of A Country 

Evita, the show that truly tested the vocal 
abilities ol the University Theatre cast, was 
presented in Tawes Theatre Nov. 7-16. 

Written by Tim Rice and put to music by 
Andrew Lloyd Webber, Evita was different 
than any other performance presented at the 
University this season. Almost the entire 
show was sung, and its success depended on 
the voices of only a few key people. Fortu- 
nately, the cast of Evita was chosen with care 
by director Ronald I. O'Learly, and the talent 
on stage was impressive. 

Che Guevara, played by Bryan Ashby, 
had the role of observer and commentator, 
following the ascent of Eva Duarte from her 
position as a lower class Argentinian peasant 
to the wife of the country's president. React- 
ing cynically to the actions and promises of 
Eva's lover-turned -husband luan Peron, Che 
sang of the Perons' rise to power. Ashby 's 
voice came across clearly, strongly and with 
great expression. 

As Evita, Patricia Carlson performed ex- 
tremely well. The songs she sang required a 
voice with a range from the almost screech- 
ing pitch of "Waltz for Eva and Che" to the 
upbeat sound of 'Rainbow Tour. " Carlson's 
finest moments, however, were during Evi- 
ta s emotional pleas to her people in "Don 't 
Cry for me Argentina. " 

The voice of Juan Peron, played by Brad 
Baker, was incredible. Sounding more like a 
professional singer than a University gradu- 
ate student. Baker sang of Peron 's love for 
Eva and Argentina and fear of such political 


power as he was on his way toward achieving. ' * * r 

The other characters in the show, along with the chorus, were also superb. A performance that is so dependent upon the 
singing ability of its cast is always an extraordinary challenge, but this time there was nothing to worry about. 

The music itself was a pleasure to listen to, thanks to the efforts of musical director James HoUoway and all of the orchestra 
members. Their talents, too, were to be applauded. 

Although the set was not elaborate, it was very effective. Scene designer Thomas F. Donahue created an atmosphere with the 
help of technical director David Kriebs and lighting designer Don Coleman that never failed to add to the mood being created 
on stage. 

Without a doubt, Evita can be added to the University Theatre's long list of superior performances. This show was definitely 
one of the best.

Changing Sexual Attitudes 

"Cloud 9, " the final tall produc- 
tion by the University Theatre, was 
presented in the Gallery Theatre 
Dec. 3rd through 15. 

Anything but a conventional 
play, "Cloud 9" was a comment 
upon the traditional roles of men 
and women and the hypocritical 
attitudes and values in society. Ac- 
cepted sexual relationships were 
challenged in this play, and new 
ones were explored. 

The cast of characters was, in it- 
self, unusual in this play. Sex roles 
were mixed and actors changed 
parts between acts. John Touhey as 
Betty was particularly convincing, 
and Ken Jackson Jr. was very en- 
tertaining as Clive. Other notable 
characters included Tonya Jordan 
as Edward, Richard Kessler as the 
announcer and Claudia A. Dumm 
as Maud. 

Directed by Harry J. Elam Jr., 
"Cloud 9" provided an unusual 
look at such issues as homosexual- 
ity, masturbation and adultery, 
something that made the play very 
different and, for many, somewhat 

The University Theatre was to be 
commended for taking on a play 
required so much audience

New Directions 

Throughout the summer, swarms of freshmen- 
to-be descended upon the College Park campus 
for their first taste of life at the University of 

Wide-eyed and enthusiastic, the new students 
arrived not knowing what to expect from their first 
day of orientation. Some were to spend only that 
day on campus, while others, who had opted for 
the two-day program, had the privilege of sleeping 
in the dormitories that night. 

During their stay on the College Park campus, 
these students were bombarded with information 
sessions covering everything from placement ex- 
ams and living arrangements to personal safety 
while on campus. They also heard about their indi- 
vidual university departments. Then, for those on 
the one-day program it was on to registration for all 

The students on the two-day program had the 
chance that night to socialize with their new found 
friends at the Terabac Dinner Theatre s production 
of "Time . . . and Time Again," an original musical 
about college life. After a fantastic performance, 
the actors and orientation advisors started every- 
one dancing. 

Most of the students then went back to the 
dorms to party or stay up late just talking with the 
new people they had met. After being awakened 
far too early for anyone s liking the next morning, 
the new freshmen began to understand what col- 
lege life was all about. 

The new day brought several more information 
sessions and, finally, registration. As official Uni- 
versity of Maryland students, the freshmen, full of 
eagerness for college to start, then went home with 
many stories to tell of the friends they had made.

56 Orientation 

The Endless Shuffle 

Beginning with the athletes and continuing until ail the freshmen were 
tucked into classes, registration was always a chaotic experience. 

It all began with a hrma] -looking letter that read like a do-it-yourself repair 

'STEP 1 : Arrange for advisement at least seven days prior to your registration 
appointment. ' 

"You have to register during 'All My Children,'" my roommate laughed, 
glancing at my letter. 

On to 'STEP 2: Arrive on time, ' the letter warned as if reading my thoughts of heading over af- 
ter the show. "Bob better not find out about Tad and Hillary that day, " I muttered. 

In Hornbake the following week, people had to climb over large stacks of green schedules to 
reach their daily Diamondback. Thousands of new Schedules of Classes packed both the library 
and the Union. Even though I grabbed four copies, I knew that by the time I tried to make out 
my schedule, I wouldn 't be able to find one. 

Back to STEP 1 . ' The only time Dr. Beckley has available for advising is Wednesday at PIS" 
the secretary told me. 

I sighed as I marked the date on my calendar, ' That 's two episodes of 'All My Children ' I'm 
going to miss. " 

When the day came, I arrived at Dr. Beckley 's office with my proposed course load "Oh no 
this will never do, " she said, checking over my list. "You need to take a math course " Damn' 
My attempt to cover up the 'W' next to MATH 115 on my transcript had failed 

' 7 returned to my dorm to go back to the drawing board. ' 'Has anyone seen my Schedule of 
Classes?" I yelled down the hall. 

"It's in Janice's room" 

'Oh, try Ivy's room, " Janice advised. 

Finally, I retrieved my schedule and was almost finished with my revisions when I reached a 
snag. "Hey, where's the English section?" 

"Oh, I gave it to Diane, " Donna remembered. 

By the time I found and pieced together the shredded page, I was covered with newsprint 
Gradually, my registration date arrived, and, not only was I on time, I was early I had just 
enough time to scope out the good-looking guys when a voice called, "1:15 appointments form 
a line here. " 

"Your schedule won 't go through, " the guy in front of the blinking computer informed me 
minutes later After shuffling through my papers, I sheepishly admitted that I had confused the 
section number with room number. 

' 'Lots of freshmen do that, " he assured me as he punched in the correct numbers. Somehow 
his words weren 7 very comforting. 

We proceeded to bicker over an incomplete approval slip for a restricted course and 
required course he insisted was already closed. Finally, I headed for my dorm cluthcing my 
stamped schedule. 

When I sat down to study that night, I had to push aside discarded pages of tentative 
schedules and tattered course listings. A crumpled transcript and handwritten notes listing 
department names and phone numbers lay scattered on top of my books. 

Surveying the disarray, I sighed with relief The dreaded task of registration was over for 
another semester.

The Masses Move In 

Those lozy days of summer become memo- 
ries of rhe post os the month of September

The exciting life of a college student began 
the first doy he or she stepped onto Terrapin

tions ond concerns were temporarily forgotten 
as the hectic moving-in process got underway. 
Nothing could have been more confusing or 
tiring as unloading the cor with Mom and Dad, 
unpacking belongings and making the dorm 
room into a home away from home. 

Living in a dormitory played a major role in 
the college experience. Residents learned to 
become more independent and responsible 
since parents were no longer around to solve ^^ '■

selves why purple shirts shouldn 't be washed .-, 

with white pants, and finding someone to sew on a button became a major accomplishment. Even eating was difficult 
since dining hall food' was a poor substitute for Mom's cooking. 

But no one needed to worry for long. After about a month, doing laundry was no longer a chore, dining hall food 
became bearable, and the 'Vous and Georgetown were replaced with the cheaper entertainment found at floor par- 
ties ond Greek houses. 

Before it seemed possible. Mom and Dad once again drove the car to the dorm entrance ond began to load it with 
belongings. Another year was over Robin Rosenfeld

A Small Peek At First Look 

The annual First Look Fair, a show- 
case lor the University's organizations 
and student services, was held Sept. 18 
& 19 on McKeldm Mall. 

On their way to and from classes, 
students passing by were treated to 
stage performances by student organi- 
zations, tempted by the smells of ethnic 
and American cuisine and introduced 
to many religious, cultural and special 

For the third year in a row, campus 
organizations joined together to partici- 
pate in First Look, a month-long welcom- 
ing celebration for freshmen. Activities in- 
cluded everything from picnics and sports 
tournaments to workshops and open- 

Two of the highlights of First Look were 
the freshman convocation and the Stamp 
Union All-Niter. A former annual event m 
the 1950s, the convocation was reinstated 
in 1984 and was held again this year at the 
chapel on Sept. 5. During the hour-long 
ceremony. Chancellor John B. Slaughter 
and other University officials took time to 
encourage new students to get involved 
in campus activities. In addition, campus 
theatre students presented skits about 
famous Maryland alumni and a play about 
campus traditions. About 400 freshmen 
sweated out the nearly lOCP heat in the 
chapel and enjoyed the reception that fol- 
lowed on the chapel lawn. 

It was a bit cooler on Sept. 6 as students 
flocked to the Sixth Annual All-Niter, an- 
other of the First Look main events. The 
All-Niter, which ran from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., 
had something for everyone and a little bit 
more. For those who wanted intellectual 
stimulation, there was the College Bowl 
tournament, an older version of "It's Aca- 
demic. " Others enjoyed the super moon 
bounce and the casino, complete with 
card tables and slot machines. Those who 
didn't want to gamble their money away 
picked up freebies, which included bal- 
loons, t-shirts, buttons, calculators and 
mugs. Seven bands played throughout 
the night, and with all the events and 
demonstrations it seemed hard not to find 
something to do. 

Many other activities went on all month 
during First Look, and whether students 
participated in the parties or the fairs, ev- 
eryone found something to do. Once 
again. First Look was a complete success. 
Assistant Director of Campus Activities 
Penny Rue summed it up best when she 
said, "Each year it's gotten better and 
better. "

interest groups. Students were also en- 
couraged to become acquainted with 
many other student organizations and 
University services. 

The Health Center carnival, the busiest 
of all fair displays, abounded with students 
eager to see demonstrations and get free 
samples of health care products. Health 
Center staff members spoke about easmg 
stress through biofeedback and curing 

bad habits through hypnosis, and advice 
was available on topics like dieting, athlet- 
ic safety and contraception. 

At the activities section of the fair, rep- 
resentatives from student organizations 
tried to lure prospective members with 
banners, literature and persuasive con- 
versation. Well represented were the reli- 
gious groups, each seeking to attract new 
students and potential leaders, while polit- 

ical groups and honor societies spread 
their leaflets and applications. 

Asa whole. First Look '85 offered some- 
thing for everyone by giving more expo- 
sure to campus organizations than any 
group or kiosk posted notice ever could. 


64 Tailgates 

Tailgating is one oi the oldest traditions 
connected with the sport oi Maryland 
lootball. The tailgate parties before the 
kickoHs were the highlights of the 1985 
football season for many students and 

All good tailgate parties started out with 
one thing in common — a group of 
friends who had gathered together to 
have a good time. Whether present stu- 
dents getting in the pre-game spirit or 
alumni returning to cheer on "their 
team," the tailgaters gathers with their 
closest friends to get into the right mood to 
watch the Terps win. 

The second essential ingredient for a 
good tailgate party was alcohol. De- 
scribed as a mood-enhancer, the alcohol 
came in many forms. The Greek tailgates 
usually centered around a keg of their 
favorite beer or whatever beer happened 
to be the cheapest at the time! Some stu- 
dents attended tailgates with their dorm 
floor or student groups. These often in- 
cluded mixed drinks or spiked punch, as 
well as beer. The alumni tailgate parties 
were usually even more sophisticated, 
and their glasses were often filled with 
wine or mixed drinks. 

Food was also important at tailgates. For 
alumni, food meant anything from scram- 
bled eggs and bacon to vegetables and 
cheese. Tailgate party food for students, 
however, usually consisted of whatever 
everyone had around — mostly bags of 
junk food. 

Once the people were assembled.

drinks were poured and food was brought 
out, the tailgate parties were well under 
way. Whether the tailgaters were middle- 
aged alums drinking screwdrivers or wine 
while munching on cheese and crackers 
or teenaged students downing beer and 
potato chips, the main idea was the same. 
The goal of the tailgate parties was to cele- 
brate in good spirits before cheering on 
the Terps to victory!

Homecoming: the time ol year everyone looked 
forward to. 

Beginning on October 31 and continuing until No- 
vember 2, Homecoming '85 was a special time at the 
University of Maryland. The comaraderie, spirit and 
enthusiasm of all those involved helped create many 
fond memories. Homecoming was a time for U. of 
Md. alumni to relive their college years by tailgating 
and cheering as if they were college students once 
more. All in all, the week of Homecoming was fun- 
filled and spectacular. 

The week began with the Olympics and banner 
contest. The new Olympics included events such as 
the orange pass, pyramid build, stick hustle and tug 
of war. Banners were made by each team participat- 

It ^v^O^DS 

ing, with designs related to this year's theme, "Back 
in Time" The 28 banners were judged by several 
professors and deans. 

The next event of the week was Talent Night, one 
of the most entertaining of the Homecoming activi- 
ties. All 28 teams competed against one another as 
they presented their five minute skits. Performances 
had to be in accordance with the "Back in Time" 
theme, and King Sig, Cleo Kappa, the Vikings and 
the Wild West were among those presented. 

Throughout the week, Greeks and student groups 
were hard at work cutting, drawing, hammering and 
gluing the floats to be shown in the Homecoming 
parade on November 2. 

66 Homecoming 

A total of 20 floats were presented, and they pro- 
vided an exciting look at the past. Special effects 
were used to help make the floats more realistic, 
including smoke, water and music. The "Golden Age 
of the Airplane, " a giant Viking ship with a Terrapin 
captain and a fire-breathing dinosaur were among 
those presented. 

The parade began in Lot 3, passed by the Stamp 
Union and ended at the Main Administration build- 
ing led by parade grand marshal Gov. Harry Hughes 
in a mini -motorcade of VIPs. Despite clouds and 
threatening forecasts, the parade was a sight to see 
and was fun for all those present. 

The Homecoming festivities wound to a close Sat- 

urday night with the Panhellenic Council Step Show 
and the RHA/SGA Boat Cruise. A high-spirited com- 
petition between Maryland's black fraternities and 
sororities, the Step Show was fun for all involved. For 
everyone who went on the boat cruise on the "First 
Lday, " a trip down the Potomac was a great way to 
end the week. 

The week of Homecoming finally ended, and, once 
again, the memories became engraved in our minds. 
A week of successful events and spirit among all 
students involved showed what the University of 
Maryland's togetherness really stood for. 

Homecoming 67 

On Saturday, November 2, 
the mighty Terrapin football 
team defeated the Tar Heels 
from the University of North 
Carolina, thrilling the Home- 
coming fans. The 28-10 vic- 
tory was Maryland's 16th 
straight win. 

The Terps were in control 
throughout almost the entire 

game, which gave them a 4-0 
record in the ACC. Quarter- 
back Stan Gelbaugh complet- 
ed 16 passes in 25 attempts to 
make a total of 197 yards for 
the game. 

Rick Badanjek had one of 
his best games of the season 
on Homecoming day. Though 
he played with a scratched 

cornea, Badanjek was able to 
rush for 88 yards and caught 
three touchdown passes for 28 

The defense played well 
right from the start, and held 
the Tar Heels back for almost 
all of the game. Although for 
most of the season the Terps 
scored more points in the late 

68 Homecoming 

quarters of the games than in 
the first halts, in the Home- 
coming game they were able 
to score right from the first 

Except for the beginning of 
the second half when the Tar 
Heels made their two scores, 
the Terps were on top 
throughout the game. The 

Homecoming game was the 
Terps' 15th Straight ACC win. 
During half time, awards 
were given to the parade win- 
ners, the Spirit of Maryland 
Award winners and the Over- 
all Homecoming Award win- 
ners. Of the more than 20 
floats in the parade, "The 
Golden Age of the Airplane, " 

the float built by Pi Kappa Al- 
pha fraternity and Delta Delta 
Delta sorority depicting two 
World War f biplanes in flight, 
was declared the winner. The 
floats were judged on the ba- 
sis of originality, artistic merit, 
relevance to theme and spirit.

70 Homecoming 


Step Show 

Ritchie Coliseum was filled with a crowd of over 2,000 enthusiastic 
people lor the annual Panhellenic Council Step Show, held on No- 
vember 2nd. The purpose ol the event was to promote unity and 
togetherness among black students on campus, as well as to introduce 
students to Ike black Greeks; and all proceeds Irom the event went 
towards a yearly minority scholarship. 

Appearing lirsf was Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, wearing pink 
paisley dresses, green sashes, pink shoes and lace gloves. The ladies 
stepped to the sounds ol rapper Doug E. Fresh and the Boogie Boys' 
"Fly Girls." 

Following AKA, the sisters of Zeta Phi Beta entered the scene Irom 
both ends olthe Hoar, dressed prolessionally in white, double breasted 
lackets and pants. "Object ol My Desire, " by Slarpoint, was the beat 
these ladies followed. 

Smoke and Hashing lights marked the beginning ol Delta Sigma 
Theta's performance. Decked out in black tails with red accessor- 


ies,the ladies captured the crowd's attention with jokes about their 
fellow fraternities and sororities. The Delta's demonstrated excellent 
choreographed lootwork as they excited to the sounds of Doug E. 
Fresh's "The Show." 

Phi Beta Sigma was the first fraternity to take the floor. Dressed m 
blue suits, the fraternity stole the show with a leatured dancer stripping 
down to his shorts. The group moved to the slow beat ol Phil Collins' 
"In the Air Tonight." 

Baggy black suits, sparkling gold ties and blackhats with gold sashes 
comprised the outfits worn by the brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha. The 
highlight ol their act was when the brothers mocked their competitors 
by putting on bunny ears and hopping. 

The steppers of Kappa Alpha Psi rejuvenated the crowd, moving to 
the beat of "In the Air Tonight" m red and white attire. The biggest 
crowd pleaser ol the evening was their traditional baton-twirling, 
cane-style bonanza. 

Perlormmg last was Omego Psi Phi, wearing army fatigues, dog tags 
and gold shoes. They rounded out the evening with traditional step- 
ping and impressive gymnastice moves. 

Spirit was demonstrated by both the sororities and fraternities, and 
their hard work and hours of practice resulted in a night of fun and 
entertainment. Lasting four hours, the evening was enjoyed by all who

Actually, you would have seen what is 
better known as the U. of Md. Dance Mar-

This year. Phi Sigma Delta raised $90,000, 
putting its total contribution to The Amer-

began. The fundraiser is ranked number 
one among all other student charity activi-

the largest fundraisers created and contin-

and all other guest speakers were invited 
to a kick-off banquet before the marathon 
in the South Campus Dining Hall. After the 
dinner, everyone moved to Ritchie Coli- 
seum,where the 72 hour party began. A 
variety of top-40 songs kept dancers on 
their feet and moving. Davis Dee Jays, 
along with the bands Bobby and the Be- 
lievers, Smile, The Look, Fastbreak and Ev- 
ery Cood Boy, helped to motivate the 
dancers and kept the big weekend rolling 

All dancers had a chance to energize 
their minds and bodies between 2 and 6 
a.m. The men slept at Phi Sigma Delta's 
house, and the women slept at Kappa Del- 
ta sorority's house. The sisters of DK co- 
sponsored the program with Phi Sigma 

The Bagel Place, Hungry Hermans and 
other local business provided the dancers 
with well-deserved food during the meal 

Phi Sigma Delta's Marathon chairman, 
Barry Flax, and assistant chairmen, Mike 
Wagschal, Harris Cohen and Billy Shaid, 
dedicated hours of work to organizing the 
fundraiser and assuring its success. Flax, 
along with assistant chairmen, was respon- 
sible for arranging a fundraising campaign 
which ran up until the days of the actual 
Marathon. During the campaign, funds 
were raised from profit-sharing parties and 
happy hours at bars and restaurants, can- 
nister collections by campus students, raf- 
fle ticket sales for various items, hourly 
sponsorship of dancers and advertise- 
ments in a Marathon Booster Book. 

The brothers of Phi Sigma Delta dedicat- 
ed this year's Marathon to Andrew Estroff, 
a brother who died of leukemia in 1976.

The Day After 

Headaches And Early Morning Study 

The music was great, the drinks poured and rhe smoke lingered as 
people worked off rhe week's tension But that was five hours ago, and 
there's a Finance exam on Monday • 

Determined not to waste on entire Saturday, I roused myself from bed 
The sides of my head ached slightly. ' 'Ho w 'd that bruise get on my leg!'" I 
wondered as I gathered my soap and shampoo and headed off to the

McKeldIn was never an enjoyable place and on Saturday morning it 
was even less so. The stairs to the third floor seemed longer than usual and 
many cold faces gazed at me as I passed. ' 'College boy has o good time

Splash! Forty bathing suit clad bodies sunk into 
a steaming hot tub for socializing and fraternizing 
at Making Waves, one of the hottest party scenes 
for students in College Park. 

For only $2 a piece, students could take part in 
all of the festivities that came with a hot tub party. 
Who could refuse a chance to sit back and relax 
in warm, swirling water? When they were not 
soaking in one of the eight hot tubs, students 
listened to music, drank soda and ate munchies 
provided by the organization sponsoring the par- 
ty. An added attraction was that Making Waves 
had sun lamps, and many sun-lovers used them 
as a way to recapture their fading summer tans. 

Besides being held as fundraisers, hot tub par- 
ties served to raise community spirit. Often 
among the most well attended community 
events, hot tub parties gave residents a chance to 
mingle in an unusual party atmosphere. 

Making Waves was always a popular site for 
parties during Spirit Semester. One such party 
was held as part of Aprilfest, April 24, to raise 
money for UNfCEF. Students signed up by the 
hour for a chance to soak their bodies in a hot tub 
while supporting a good cause. 

But hot tub parties were not always held to 
raise money or foster community unity. Some, 
usually sponsored by fraternities and sororities, 
were just for fun. One recent example was a 
party which even included two kegs and a disc

When a number of 
campus students com- 
plained of measles 
symptoms In lore 
March, Health Center 
officials were fearful 
that an epidemic hod 
begun. More than 250 
cases of measles had 
been reported on at 
least 16 other college campuses, and the disease seemed to hove finally 
reached Maryland. 

To combat an outbreak, free immunization procedures were begun, and 
more than 6,500 students received vaccinations before the end of the semes- 
ter. Measles clinics were held all over campus, from the Heolrh Center to the 
dormitories and engineering buildings, where confirmed measles cases had 
had a lot of contact To announce these clinics, large ads were placed in the Di- 
amondback by the Health Center, warning students, faculty and staff of the 
dangers of measles and providing information that would help individuals 
check on their immunity status. 

Dy the time Health Center director Dr. Margaret Dridwell officially declared 
rhe measles threat over on May 8, more than eight coses hod been confirmed 
or suspected on campus. Fortunately, however, the Health Center's quick 
actions and planning prevented the outbreak from spreading even further, 
and a serious crisis was avoided.

The Fighting 


Terrapin Teams Give It 
Their All For A Winning 


The word "athlete" holds many different 
meanings for many people. For some, it 
means "winner" or "glory". To others, it 
means "fatigue" or "exhaustion". To every- 
one, though, an athlete is a different kind of 
person; a unique person. 

The athletes at the University of Maryland 
contributed time and talent to their winning 
teams while balancing athletics with their ac- 
ademic and personal lives. It was certainly a 

This year the athletes at the University of 
Maryland met their special challenge well. 
Not only did they give us winning teams, but 
they gave us some exciting sports action as 

Here's to our athletes. For all you do, these 
pages are for you. 


Though '85 wasn't one of the better 
years for Terrapin baseball, the growth 
and development of the team's many 
young players gave fans high hopes for 
next year. 

In the 50 game season, the longest 
ever, the Terps finished 22-28, with an 
impressive tie for third place in the ACC 
tournament. This was a remarkable record 
for a team who's coach worried they 
might not win 10 games after a horrifying 

Erratic pitching plagued the Terps. 
Troubled by the injuries to several key 
players, the pitching staff was up and 
down all season. Pitchers Dave Karczeski 
and Ed Russell were among the top three 
pitchers in the ACC tournament as they 
entered its final game; however, the team 
finished the season allowing an average of 
9.2 hits during the last eleven games. 

By contrast, hitting was strong and 
consistant throughout the season. Alex 
Pauley set season records of 19 homer- 
uns, 66 RBIs and 137 bases. Bryan Daven- 
port contributed a record 81 hits, includ- 
ing a record 17 doubles, and a senior 
record .403 batting average. Also strong 
was Chris Stark (.359) with a record 70 
runs scored. 

As a whole, the Terps showed great 
potential and should be back even better 
next year.

This year, the U. of MD took the sport 
of women's lacrosse seriously— and with 
good reason. Playing as a team and work- 
ing hard always seems to produce winners 
and tough competitors, an idea reflected 
by the 1985 team. 

Coached by Sue Tyler, the Terps fin- 
ished the regular season with a 15-2 over- 
all record. They then pushed themselves 
even further in post-season play by defeat- 
ing Penn State 12-11 in triple overtime 
during the semi-finals round of the NCAA 
Championships, an inspirational victory 
that led the Terps to the NCAA Finals 
against New Hampshire. Although they 
lost a close championship game (6-5), the 
team finished second in the nation. 

Special recognition was given to many 
team members. There were six South Re- 
gion Ail-Americans, including team cap- 
tains Kay Ruffino, Karen Trudel and Joan 
Rotoloni. Ruffino also set three individual 
records for most points and most assists 
in a game and most points in a sesason. 

In addition, the team as a whole estab- 
lished four University records. The most 
notable of these was the record for most 
goals in a game, set early in the season 
when the Terps creamed Towson 29-5. 

The 1985 women's lacrosse team was, 
without a doubt, one of the best.

The 1985 U. of MD men's lacrosse team, 
coached by Dick Edell, had an overall record 
of 7-5. Though the season was marked by 
inconsistencies, the team ended up in a triple 
tie for first place in the ACC with the Universi- 
ty of North Carolina and the University of 

One of the team's more successful mo- 
ments was the exciting 10-5 victory over the 
University of North Carolina. The Terps 8-7 
loss to Johns Hopkins in overtime showed, 
however, that not every game would be a win. 
Though inexperienced, the team was motivat- 
ed, and its true ability was demonstrated by 
the fact that the Terps outscored their oppo- 
nents throughout the season by about 30% in 
the final quarter. 

Special recognition was given to outstand- 
ing offensive player Brian Willard, outstanding 
midfielder Todd Ensor, outstanding defensive 
player John Merrill and unsung heroes Joe 
Janssens and Ed Gregory. Their abilities were 
valuable assets to the team. 

For the second year, the team was fortu- 
nate to be guided by Edell, a former National 
Coach of the Year and president of the U.S. 
Lacrosse Coaches Association. By the end of 
the season, Edell was already looking forward 
to forming a strong team for next year, 
shaped with new, promising underclassmen 
and experienced returning team members.

1985 was another fine year for men's 
track at Maryland. 

Endless practices and tremendous ef- 
forts resulted in ttiree players becoming 
winners in the ACC Championships. For 
the third consecutive year, Per Kristoffer- 
sen won the 1,500 meter and in '85 set a 
new ACC record. Team captain Scott Vra- 
bel captured the shot put, and Dennis 
Cullinane won the steeplechase. 

In the team's own recognition ceremo- 
ny, Vrabel received the John W. Guckeyson 
Award recognizing scholarship, leadership 
and superior athletic ability. Terry 
Sweeney received the Charles P. McCor- 
mick Award, given annually to an in-state 
athlete judged to have contributed the 
most to Maryland athletics during his se- 
nior year. 

Also receiving recognition for outstand-

The Maryland women's track team de- 
serves to be commended once again for 
another season well done. 

Great performances were turned in by 
three women in the 1985 ACC Champion- 
ships. Monica Kuhn won the high jump, 
Linda Spenst captured the heptathalon for 
the second consecutive year and Carolyn 
Forde won the 1,500 meter for a third 
consecutive year. Forde also made All-

Recognition for outstanding achieve- 
ment went to Forde in the 1,500 and 
3,000 meters, Laura Novell in the 400

University of Maryland wonnen's tennis 
surprised many with an outstanding 1985 
season, made possible by the individual 
strengths of the team's players. 

Under the leadership of coach Bobby 
Goeltz, the young Terps, consisting of 
three juniors and three freshmen, finished 
10-6 overall and 4-3 in the ACC. The team 
also placed a respectable fourth in the 
ACC tournament at Wake Forest. 

Much of the credit for this fine season 
went to freshman standout Claudia Bor- 
giani. A native of Venezuela, Borgiani fin- 
ished the season with a 17-2 singles re- 
cord and a 16-2 record in doubles 
matches with her partner Jenni Don- 
necker. Borgiani was also a standout in 
ACC tournament play, having been award- 
ed MVP honors and winning in No. 1 flight 

Other standouts included second seed- 
ed Donnecker and the freshman third 
seeded doubles team of Denise Fisher and 
Kerri Stern who individually compiled 4-2 
and 5-2 ACC singles records and combined 
finished with a 5-0 doubles mark.

Another Superb Year

1985 was another superb year for Ter- 
rapin men's tennis, but once again the 
team's strong ACC opponents had the up- 
per hand. The Terps found themselves in a 
tight battle for second place in the ACC 

Having already lost the ACC champion- 
ship to the Clemson Tigers, all attention at 
the ACC tournament was turned toward 
defeating the hosting Tar Heels. Aided by 
the victories by the No. 3 seeded doubles 
team of James Schor and George Myers, 
and the victory by freshman standout Va- 
leric Boccitto over Duke's Bob Williams 7-

second place finish.

1985 was a year of mixed results for 
tfie Terp golfers. Mediocre team perfor- 
mance was oversfiadowed by the splendid 
play of one of its youngest members. 

Freshman Mike Kavka in one short sea- 
son rose to be considered one of the 
premier golfers in the ACC. Highlighting his 
season was a seventh place finish (73-69- 
72-214 in the ACC tournament, beating 
such competitors as University of North 
Carolina's Jack Nicklaus Jr. and Wake For- 
est's Masters Tournament participant Jer- 
ry Haas. Kavka and teammate Paul Hiskey 
also led the Terps with fourth place finish- 
es (221) in the Terrapin Classic. 

The team as a whole, however, per- 
formed well below expectations. Struggling 
against their nationally ranked ACC peers, 
the Terps copped a dismal seventh place 
finish in the ACC tournament, but were 
able to win the Terrapin Classic against 
less distinguished non-ACC opponents.

For the fourth straight year the Maryland 
Terrapin football team went to a bowl game. 
On December 21, 1985 the Terps beat Syra- 
cuse 35-18 in the Cherry Bowl. It was played at 
Pontiac, Michigan's Silverdome before a crowd 
of 51,858. 

Maryland surprised everyone by getting 35 
points against a Syracuse defense ranked one 
of the best in the nation. Quarterback Stan 
Gelbaugh completed 14 of 20 passes for 223 
yards with two TD passes and a four-yard TD 
run. He was named the games offensive MVP. 
The Terp's runningbacks accounted for 244 
yards of the 467 total yardage. Alvin Blount led 
Maryland with 132 yards rushing in 24 carries. 

Even the Terp's defense put some points on 
the board. Scott Schankweiler, the game's de- 
fensive MVP, popped the ball loose from Syra- 
cuse' punt-returner Scott Schwedes, on U of 
MD's 10 yard Ime. Defensive Tackle Scott Tye 
caught the ball in mid-air and ran eight yards 
for a TD. Maryland made good use of the 
Orangemens' 5 turnovers (3 interceptions, 2 
fumbles), while committing only one 

The victory enabled 20th ranked Maryland 
to finish 9-3 for the second straight year.

Cherry Bowl 93 

Before the '85 football season began at tfie 
University of IVIaryland, the Terps were ranked 
in the top 10 by many major polls and #1 by 
Sport Magazine. The fans were thrilled and 
looked forward to an exciting year. Unfortu- 
nately, with that highly publicized honor came 
high expectations and pressure. 

The first game of the season was perhaps 
the most memorable of the five held in Byrd 
Stadium. The Penn State Nittany Lions, led by 
coach Joe Paterno, went into the game look- 
ing to knock the Terps off their high ranking 
perch. The game was as uncharacteristic as 
the weather. With the exception of fullback 
Rick Badanjek's two touchdowns, the Terp 
offense sputtered all day as the temperature 
rose above 98°. Maryland fought hard to pull 
out a 4th quarter win on national TV, but lost 
18 - 20. 

However, that disappointment was not 
enough to dampen the Terps' spirits as they 
journeyed to Boston College. This time the 
Terps were hot and the Eagles were the ones 
who could not hold the ball. The Terps won 
their first road game 31 • 13. 

Game #3 was a Maryland fan's delight! 
The Terps came back to Byrd and proceeded 
to beat West Virginia 28 - 0. Stan Gelbaugh 
and the rest of the offense cranked out 518 
total yards while holding W.V. to 271. 

Game #4 was billed by the sports media 
as "the game in which the Terps could redeem 
themselves." The Terps traveled to Ann Ar- 
bor, Michigan, to play the top 10-ranked Wol- 
verines before a crowd of 105,282. The Terps 
held their opponents to 20 points, but the 
Wolverines held Maryland to zero. So much 
for redemption. The Terps' record dropped to 

Fortunately, the Terrapins found solace 
with the knowledge that ACC play would begin 
with Game #5 against NO State. 

Carter-Finley Stadium was a superb site 
for the Terps to catch fire once again. Gel- 
baugh completed 14 of 24 passes and the MD 
defense had nine sacks and held the NC State 
rush to 29 yards. The Terps won their first 
ACC victory of the '85 season. 

The win started the Terps on one of their 
familiar ACC game winning streaks. Wake For- 
est fell next, 26 - 3, with WR Azizuddin Abdur- 
Ra'oof catching two TD passes. On Oct. 19, 
Duke came into College Park. They were not 
expecting Rick Badanjek to score two TD's 
and Gelbaugh to throw three more. The Terps 
generated 40 points, their highest point total 
of the season, and held the Blue Devils to 10. 

November 2nd's Homecoming game 
against the U. of N.C. Tarheels was a dream 
game for the Terp defense. Maryland had six 
sacks and held the Heels to a mere 199 yards 
offense, and the Terps won 28 - 10. 

On November 9th, Maryland headed to 
Baltimore's Memorial Stadium hoping to final- 
ly beat a top 10-ranked team. The opponent 
was the Miami Hurricanes, led by QB Vinnv

High Pressure 


Testaverde. Unlike the eventful game between the two teams in 
'84, there was no miracle in Memorial this time. Miami pre- 
vailed, 29 - 22, as the Hurricane offense generated 442 total 
yards before a crowd of 62,350. 

The 6 ■ 3 Terrapins' last road game of '85 was against the 
Clemson Tigers. In the end the game turned out to be the 
"Gelbaugh and Plocki Show." Gelbaugh threw for a career-high 
361 yards (23 for 35 with 3 TDs) while freshman Dan Plocki 
kicked the game-winning field goal with :03 seconds left in the 

The sheer exhilaration of the Clemson win gave the Terps the 
momentum to beat their eighth opponent, Virginia, in the last 
game of the season. Runningback Alvin Blount had 186 yards 
rushing on 28 carries as the Terrapins rolled over the Cavaliers 
33 ■ 21. 

Coach Bobby Ross' Maryland team finished its season with a 
very respectable 8 - 3 record and an appearance at the Cherry 
Bowl in Pontiac, Michigan.

The University of Maryland men's soc- 
cer team demonstrated their striking tal- 
ent in the 1985 season, leading the Terps 
to a 14-5-1 final record. Alden Shattuck, 
the new head coach, guided the team 
through an impressive first season with 
the Assistance of coaches Joe Cryan and 
Deon Foti. 

The Terps improved their record of the 
number of shutouts in the season from 7 
to 13. Also, the team earned more wins 
this season than in the previous two sea- 
sons joined together. 

The biggest victory of the season was 
the 3-2 win over 12th ranked Duke when 
the Terps scored the winning goal with 20 
seconds left in the game. 

Freshman Gary Furlong helped keep the 
Terps on top by scoring 12 goals after the 
first 12 games in the season. Setting a 
new school record was freshman Gino 
Ferrin with 14 assists this season. Team 
captain Desmond Armstrong and sweeper 
Steve Annis were both valuable players, 
whose expertise will be hard to replace 
next season, and goalkeeper Dom Mancia 
used his outstanding skills to help the 
team produce a stunning overall record.

The University of Maryland women's

'85 season. The team left the George 
Washington University Invitational vKith a 
1 and 2 start, but redeemed themselves 
later on in the season by boosting their 
stats with a 12-9 record. 

Co-captains Sally Strasser and Karen 
Tuel led the team through the season. 
Coach Barbara Drum, in her 15th year as 
coach of the team noted that, although 
this had been her smallest team, with only 
ten members, the team was very cohesive. 

The strongest players of the '85 season 
were sophomores Sheila Fearnow and 
Wendy Waibel and junior Kathy Moreland. 
The team began recruiting for height and it 
followed that the three leading scorers 
were the tallest. 

Despite the volleyball team's slow 
start, by mid-season they had pulled the 
record up to a respectable 12-9.

about being unable to go to the Ohio 
Jamboree, they were happy with their 
achievements at the Bucknell Invitational 
in Lewisburg, Pa. 

The most valuable runner for '85 was 
Carolyn Forde; she was also All District for 
the second time. The team had good run- 
ners and the coach had high hopes for the 
young team. A national ranking might be 
looming ahead for women's cross country 
in the very near future! 

Women's Cross Country 103 

1985 was a banner year for the Univer- 
sity of Maryland women's field hockey 

For the first time in its history, the 
team was invited to the NCAA tournament 
where it advanced to the quarterfinals by 
beating rival Penn State. 

The Terps finished the regular '85 sea- 
son with a 14-7-3 record (1-2-1 inACC). 
Co-captains Heather Lewis and Tracy 
Stumpf led a team of high-powered scor- 
ers, while Kim Chorosiewski was an out- 
standing goalie, serving seven shutouts in 
24 games. 

Five team members received mid-Atlan- 
tic regional All-America honors. They were: 
freshman Kim Turner, who led the Terps in 
scoring with 29 points; junior Amy Patton; 
and seniors Robyn James, Heather Lewis 
and Tracy Stumpf.

After a great seasori last year, the University of 
Maryland men's basketball team was optimistic 
about the new season. Chances were slim from the 
start, however, that the team would do as well. 

Ttie team began the season with a win over the 
Northeastern University Huskies. The 84-72 victory 
was not easy, though, and it was clear that the team 
had a long way to go. Turnovers were numerous and 
neither team played without mistakes. 

The next game was even harder to win, but the 
Terps scraped by with an 81-80 victory over the 
George Mason University Patriots. Leji Bias was the 
only high scorer in this game, and, once again, 
turnovers and fouls on the Terps end were abundant. 
Terrapin weaknesses were showing clearly. 

Their season was off to a slow start, and the next 
game against Ohio State University was no help. The 
Terps lost to the Buckeyes 78-76. 

Led once again by Coach Charles Driesell, the 
team hoped for better moments during the rest of 
the season. Although the men were without some of 
last year's good players, a number of new recruits 
showed promise, and, of course, Len Bias was still 

106 Men's Basketball 

Hard Times Ahead 


Len Bias showed from game one that he was still 
hot. Scoring 23 pointsjn that game, he went on to 
beat his own record by scoring 33 points during the 
game against George Mason. 

Keith Gatlin was another Terrapin hopeful this 
year, and the Terps expected great things from him 
as well. Other returning players Included Jeff Baxter 
and Terry Long. 

New players John Johnson and Tony Massenburg 
were among the new players on the team this year. A 
6'4" guard from Knoxville, Tenn., Johnson was voted 
state high school player of the year by state high 
school writers; and Massenberg, a 6'9" all-state 
forward from Sussex, Va., looked promising as well. 

As a whole, the team was ready to work hard, and 
from the looks of things, they would need to. The 
season was not to be an easy one.

After an uncharacteristic 9-18 
losing season last year, the 1985- 
1986 women's basketball team re- 
bounded and had an exciting 

Returnmg this year were six let- 
termen, two sophomores and two 
juniors. The team's two seniors, 
Chequita Wood and Monica Gan- 
non, served as the team's co-cap- 
tains for the season. Freshman 
guard Deana Tate was an offensive 
standout —leading the Terps in 
many categories of scoring. 

Chris Weller returned for her 
11th year as head coach of the 
Terps, sporting a .723 winning per- 
centage. This year Weller, who had 
led the Terps to five previous ACC 
championships, had the opportuni- 
ty to coach two international stars 
from Finland and Yugoslavia. They 
were 6'1" forward Kaisa Maine and 
5'4" guard Zorana Radovic. 

The 1985-1986 squad consisted 
of Lisa Brown, Carolin Dehn-Duhr, 
Monica Gannon, Kaisa Maine, Bren- 
da Mason, Jonette Niles, Pamela 
Noyes, Zorana Radovic, Subrene 
Rivers, Deana Tate, Chris Vera and 
Chequita Wood.

Notable Performances 


112 Wrestling 


The Terrapin wrestling team had 
a slow start this year, but before 
long members made it clear that 
they were not to be taken lightly. 

The team's first match was 
against Oregon State and was a 
disappointment for almost every- 
one. The Terps lost all but three 
weight classes and the Beavers 
won 27-10. A major problem 
seemed to be conditioning, and a 
number of members could not hold 
onto their leads. 

At the Penn State Invitational 
tournament, though, the Terps 
were back in business. Although no 
wrestlers won individual titles, 
Chris Pattrick (190 lbs.) did win 
the consolation championship for 
his class. 

One of the high points for the 
team came with its 42-6 victory 
over the American University Ea- 
gles. Seeking revenge against the 
Eagles for their loss last year, the 
Terps were fired up. Notable per- 
formances were given by many 
wrestlers, especially Phil Brown 
and Dante Desiderio. 

Coached by John McHugh, the 
Terp wrestling team was in for a 
good season.

New Varsity Records 

Men's & Women's Swimming 

1985 marked the University of Mary- 
land swimming team's 28th consecutive 
winning season. 

Under the leadership of head coach 
Charles Hoffman, a 1972 U. of Md. gradu- 
ate, the Terp men and women finished 
with records of 6-3 and 5-4 respectively. 
Weak conference records of 1-2 for the 
men and 0-3 for the women, however, led 
to disappointing 5th place final ACC stand- 
ings for both the men and women. 

The winning season, according to Hoff- 
man, was made possible by the team's 
exceptional dedication and hard work, and 
resulted in 11 women's and 14 men's new 
varsity records being set. Much of the 
credit for the season went to team cap- 
tains Mike Kelly, Joe Haddon, Lisa Unger 
and Betsy Bozzelli. Among the many re- 
cord breakers were outstanding individual 
performers Todd Gray, Kim Piefley, Amy 
Dilweg and Patty Corson, all of whom 
qualified for the NCAA's. Corson also 
made Ail-American. Team recognition 
awards for Most Valuable Player were giv- 
en to Gray and Peifley, Scholar-Athelete 
Awards to Gray and Laurie Hug and Senior 
Awards to Joe Hadden and Dilweg.

The Intramurals Sports and Recreation Pro- 
gram offered campus members the opportuni- 
ty to participate in activities ranging from 
badminton and horseshoes to softball and 
football during both the fall and spring 

Under the direction of Nick Kolvalakides 
since 1969, the program was designed to 
cater to the physical and health needs of its 
participants. It also provided hundreds of offi- 
ciating jobs for students, who were expected 
to maintain a high standard of performance in 
each game. 

Participants always tried to achieve high 
levels of performance since the possibility of 
competing in a tournament was always there. 
Winners of these tournaments received a 
small gold terrapin, and other awards were 
given to runners-up as well. 

in addition, intramural participants were 
eligible for the James Kehoe and Ethel Keller 
awards, which recognized one male and one 
female for high levels of program involve- 
ment, sportsmanshipand achievement. 

Awards were presented during halftime at 
one of the footballggames. This year, the 
recipients were David S. Klockner, a senior 
civil engineering major, and Karen E. Andrea, 
a senior finance and economics major. 

The intramural program not only allowed 
Its participants a chance to experience the 
thrill of competition, but it also provided them 
with the opportunity for social interaction 
with hundreds of other students, all of whom 
had come together to be a part of the athletic

Getting Tilings Done & 
Expressing Opinions 

On a campus of 35,000 students, people 
can even organize fun. Ttiose pictured on 
ttiese pages didn't tiave to asic how thiey 
couid meet peopie on such a big campus or 
to compiain about never meeting peopie 
who lilted the same icinds of things they did. 

Through notices In the paper, announce- 
ments on the kioslcs or reliable word of 
mouth, students who demanded more out of 
college than paperwork flocked to meetings 
and formed committees. Not one of them suf- 
fered an Identity crisis while surrounded by 
others with similar Interests. 

These students managed to schedule a lit- 
tle fun Into the dally grind by pursuing inter- 
ests outside of the textbook. From colorful t- 
shirts to campaign buttons, the memorabalia 
received by students from their clubs and 
organizations was an extension of 




Student Government 

For the first time ever, the University of 
Maryland had a king. 

The Monarchist Party made history in 
the 1985 SCA elections by capturing all 
four executive offices. Forced into a run- 
off vi^ith the CLASS party after the Nov. 13 
election, the Monarchists, led by King 
Tom II, were pleased to have made it that 
far. When they swept the Nov. 20 runoff, 
they were ecstatic. 

Promising such unconventional im- 
provements to the campus as a safety 
moat filled with "fine imported lager," 
King Tom II (Thomas Cooper) and his fel- 
low candidates gave University students 
an alternative to the type of student gov- 
ernment that existed for years. Faced 
with corruption in a number of the par- 
ties campaigning in 1985, many students 
chose to demonstrate their disapproval 
by voting Monarchist. 

The new SCA leaders were: King Tom 
II (Thomas Cooper) as president; Lord 
High Chancellor Duke Sir Paul (Paul 
Croarkin) as first vice president; Queen 
Virginia Russell as second vice president; 
and Chancellor of the Exchequer James 
Rear don as treasurer. 

CLASS party members took all SCA leg- 
islature seats except the South Hill, Leon- 
ardtown and part-time positions, which 
were won by Monarchists, and the North 
Hill seat, which was won by REACH.

Few schools rivaled the University of Maryland when it came 
to spirit! 

On the days of football games, the dormitories and Creek 
houses were conspicuously empty. And where was everyone? 
They were getting ready for pre-game spirit at the many tail- 
gate parties being held before kickoff around campus, especial- 
ly in Lot 1. So strong was Terrapin spirit that alumni returned 
time and time again wearing Maryland colors to party in camp- 
ers and under canopies while exchanging stories about their 
days in College Park. 

By the time the game itself rolled around, everyone was 
excited and ready to cheer on the mighty Terps to victory. 
Inside the gates of Byrd Stadium, school spirit was even more 
obvious. Students proudly cheered and waved their red shak- 
ers when Maryland completed a good play, and the entire 
stadium buzzed with enthusiasm as a wave passed through the 


Spirit 125 

Excitement also abounded during tialf- 
time at the games, as fans were treated to 
rousing performances by the cheerleaders 
the team mascot and the Maryland marching 
band. These dedicated students spent long 
hours practicing so they could give their best 
possible performances to the crowd. 

Terrapin fever manifested itself in other 
ways besides at the football games. Students 
stocked their rooms with Terrapin towels, 
posters, cups, and assorted red and white 
articles of clothing as well as with memora- 
bilia bearing slogans against Maryland's 

School spirit abounded during the week 
of Homecoming, the Terp's biggest game. 
The students began celebrating at the Pep 
Rally the night before the game to get every- 
one fired up. The enthusiasm continued the 
next day with parties and the Homecoming 
Parade. The atmosphere of excitement last- 
ed all day during the game and long into the 

All in all, Maryland students were exuber- 
ant when it came to their school and its 
teams. From the pre-game celebrations to

The Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps 
program's main objective was recruiting, training, 
and commissioning young men and women to be 
officers in the United States Air Force. 

Detachment 330 strove for excellence in both 
military and academic endeavors. In addition to 
their regular academic load, cadets took academ- 
ic courses taught by military instructors on sub- 
jects ranging from management, writing and 
speaking skills to global politics, national defense 
policy, and national security. All cadets were re- 
quired to maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point 
average. Alongside their academic training, the 
cadets received rather extensive military training. 
In the first two years of the normal four year 
program, cadets spent a great deal of time and 
energy learning proper uniform wear, drill, mili- 
tary procedures, customs, and courtesies. During 
the Junior and senior years, the cadets became 

the leaders in the Corps, and were responsible 
for its overall operation, including the training of 
freshmen and sophomore cadets in drill and mili- 
tary customs and courtesies. 

Because the Air Force wanted to commission 
well-rounded people, there was always time for 
fun and social interaction. Joining the Arnold Air 
Society, Maryland Honor Guard, Society for 
American Military Engineers, or Angel Flight 
meant participating in the numerous community 
service activities in which these organizations 
were involved. These activities included fund 
raising for charities, blood drives, leadership 
academies, 10 kilometer runs, POW/MIA aware- 
ness campaigns and much more. Among the oth- 
er regularly scheduled activities in the Corps 
were athletic field days, formal dinners, parties 
and military balls. These activities allowed the 
cadets to get together, let off a little steam, and 

enjoy fellowship and good food in a less formal 

The Air Force was continually searching for 
exceptional young men and women with aca- 
demic backgrounds ranging from political sci- 
ence, foreign language, meteorology, and crimi- 
nology to mathematics, electrical, mechanical, 
and aeronautical engineering. When the cadets 
completed the AFROTC training program and 
received their baccalaureate degrees, they en- 
tered the Air Force as Second Lieutenants for a 
minimum of four years in positions ranging from 
pilots and navigators to engineers, computer op- 
erations consultants, and intelligence officers. 
The Air Force was much more than an interesting 
career; it was a way of life. 

Detachment 330 took great pride in being able 
to say that "hand in hand with the University of 
Maryland, we are developing the leaders of 
tommorrow. "

McKeldin mall. 

As time went on, it became a compet-

Although losing to UCal-Berkley in the 
final game, the Maryland Men's Rugby

the University of Maryland's hottest ath-

had compiled an impressive 22-2 record 
against college teams since the beginning

A non-profit organization, Maryland Media, Inc. (MM I) is the owner and 
publisher of the five campus publications: The Diamondback, Terrapin, 
Eclipse, Mitzpeh and Calvert. 

The production shop is also part of MMl. In addition to preparing the 
publications for printing, the production shop helps with the many graphic 

services offered by MMl, includ- 
ing wedding invitations, resumes 
and business cards. 

Established in 1971 by the 
Board of Regents, MMl is head- 
ed by General Manager Michael 
Fribush, Business Manager Nan- 
cy French and a 14 member 
board of directors. 

The board of directors is re- 
sponsible for hiring the editors, 
setting the budgets and running 
the business operations for each 
publication. The board does not, 
however, excercise editorial 
control. Editorial content is the 
responsibility of the editor-in- 
chief of each publication. 

The MMl board is comprised 
of 12 elected members and two 
hired professionals. They in- 
clude three lay members of the 
community, two faculty mem- 
bers, two students-at-large and 
the five editors-in-chief.

Production Shop 

An essential part of MMl is the production shop, headed by 
Overall Production Manager C.J. Casner. 

Known as the graphic consultants, production shop employ- 
ees are responsible for handling the paste-ups for the Universi- 
ty publications as well as outside business. 

Almost nothing was too difficult for the production shop, and 
personal graphic requests were almost never rejected. All but 
the actual printing was done directly in the shop itself. 

Because it is a daily paper. The Diamondback is a major 
responsibility of the production shop, and nightime production 
is devoted solely to that publication. Night Manager Eduardo 
Dalere handled the job well. 

The staff consisted mostly of students hired by C.J. Casner.

Business Staff 

"Business before pleasure" was the policy 
of the Maryland Media business office — 
most of the time. The small, but lively staff of 
students managed to include fun and games 
while taking care of business for the five 
publications and the publishing corporation 
at the same time. 

A day at the office usually involved the 
necessary bookkeeping, accounting, selling 
classified ads, handling subscriptions — and, 
of course, handling the unpredictable crises 
that came with the newspaper business. The 
staff prided itself on maintaining an efficient, 
organized and smoothly running office; 
however, a day in the life of this staff was 
never without a few laughs and a lot of fun.

skills, the advertising staff of The Di- 
amondback sold newspaper space to 
those groups interested in capturing 
campus attention. To do this, skilled 
salespeople presented effective sales 
pitches, made the sales and main- 
tained working, professional rela- 
tionships with advertisers. 

Healthy paychecks, useful work 
experience and knowledge were 
only a couple of the rewards for this 
staff. Working together to meet 
common goals, these salespeople 
were members of a close-knit net- 
work of future professionals.

The good and the bad is all part of putting it together. What did I get myself into 

AGAIN? j,_ ,. , , / 

As I look back there are many memories of frustration caused by editors, lack ot 
organization and motivation, uncooperative campus organizations, and absence 
of photographic materials. There was yelling, fighting, confusion, lost photo- 
graphs, and of course Beim Photography didn't help. But were there late pages? 
NEVER! Mainly there are memories of smiles, hugs, words of encouragement, 
laughter and dancing with excitement after each completed deadline. 

This edition of the Terrapin is special and, to those who made these memories, I 
cannot express my gratitude in this one paragraph, but I would like to take this 
opportunity to thank my editors and all those who contributed: Iris for all the 
pages and for keeping me up to date when I was out of date; God bless Claire 
whom I must have driven crazy (She finally convinced me it takes time to write a 
good story); Donna, though she did pledge I knew yearbook came first (I just had 
to keep reminding her); and Becky, without whom there would have been no 

Thanks to the photographers who hussled like crazy when they knew we were 
in need and who were always there for us. 

Writers - you are the ones who write the history. Thanks for helping me to 
achieve one of my goals. 

And thanks to the layout staff who developed the design. 

You all created it so enjoy it! 

Good luck to all of you, Jeanne

My experiences with the year- 
book have helped me to grow. If it 
had not been for these experiences, 
I would have never come as far as I 
have. Through these activities, I have 
met new people and learned how to 
work together as a team. The suc- 
cessful reality of this completed 
yearbook was possible because of 
the efforts of the entire 1986 Terra- 
pin team. A winning season is a team 
effort and the members of the Terra- 
pin team gave their talents towards 
accomplishing a memorable chroni- 
cle consisting of this year's highlights 

that students and staff at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland will remember for 
years to come. And as graduation 
draws nearer, I will, as I hope you 
will, reflect tearfully and anticipate 
anxiously our unknown future. 
Looking back on how we were and 
who we were are captured between 
the covers of this yearbook. This is 
our history - A record in time! Best 
of luck in the future.

Changing With 
The Times 

The Eclipse, formerly the Black Explosion, 
was the black student newspaper at the U. of 

Formerly owned by the Black Student Union, 
the paper was begun as a newsletter in the '60s. 
The staff saw the emergence of the Eclipse as a 
new light and a new beginning for the paper. 
They believed the struggle for black students 
on campus had not ended, and, as a result, the 
16-year-old paper strived for more aggressive- 
ness and controversial reporting of events that 
affected the black community on campus. Oth- 
er changes to the paper included more news, 
more variety and, of course, more feature 

The staff of the Eclipse consisted of 10-15 
people. The paper was published every other 
Monday. This year's editor-in-chief was Kevin 
C. Johnson.

The Diamondback 

The Diamondback, the daily independent 
student newspaper at the University's College 
Park campus, provided quality journalism to 
students, faculty and staff for more than seven 

The tradition prospered recently when the 
Diamondback, with a circulation of more than 
21,000 was named the best college newspaper 
in the nation by the Society of Professional 
Journalists (Sigma Delta Chi) four times in the 
last ten year. 

While providing excellent coverage of news 
on campus and surrounding community, the 
Diamondback served as a training ground for 
student journalists to gain experience vital for 
jobs in the mass media. 

Former Diamondback reporters and editors 
worked at many of the country's top newspa- 
pers and wire services including The New York 
Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street 
Journal, The Baltimore Sun and The Associated 
Press and United Press International.

For the Jewish population of 6,000 students, Mitzpeh— 
The Outlook was the main source of information about 
Jewish concerns, both on campus and off. 

The news articles read in Mitzpeh went behind the 
scenes of campus Jewish organizations, capturing the true 
feelings of their leaders and members. When a Zionist 
group tried for recognition among other international 
groups on campus, Mitzpeh was there. When the Meyer- 
hoff Jewish studies department hired a new professor, 
Mitzpeh covered the event. When students lobbied for 
Israel or Soviet Jewry on Capitol Hill, Mitzpeh went along. 

In addition to it's factual reporting, Metzpeh was well 
known for bringing new issues to light on it's page of 

A publication of Maryland Media, Inc., Mitzpeh was 
published monthly.

Issues And Answers 


The Stamp Union 
Programs Council was 
made up of student, 
volunteers, and trained 
professionals who 
worked together to or- 
ganize and implement 
activities for the campus 
community. A number 
of committees and 
groups sponsored by 
SUPC held regular 
events and excursions 
to which all were free 
to participate in. 

The Outdoor Recrea- 
tion Committee spon- 
sored trips of all kinds 
for lovers of the out- 
doors. Camping, hiking, 
canoeing and skiing 
were among the trips 

Class Onion and Spectrum Showcase were also orga- 
nized by Stamp Union Programs. Concerts were held 
throughout the year, and groups such as Shriekback and 
The Ramones were among the year's highlights. 

The Issues & Answers Committee helped to inform the 
student body of current issues on and off campus. Mem- 
bers of the athletic department, for example, were often 
part of a panel that the Committee set up so the student 
body could learn about the activities of athletic staffs. 

Other groups organized by SUPC were the film com- 
mittee and the college bowl committee.

One of the first aspects of the University of Maryland 
that new students noticed was the large number of 
services available. From health care to job fairs, chances 
were if someone needed a particular service, the Uni- 
versity offered it. 

The one service that could not be avoided by incom- 
ing residents was Dining Services. What many students 
did not realize, however, was that Dining Services 
meant a lot more than just dining halls. Students could 
acquire a meal plan, a D.S. Cash card or a charge card 
for use in any of the Dining Services establishments. For 
those who chose to forego the traditional dining halls, 
there were a number of restaurants and eateries on 
campus to choose from, all operated by Dining 

For students who chose not to live on campus, the 
Commuter Affairs Office was the place to go. The of- 
fice provided information on carpools, shuttle services 
and off-campus housing for those who desired a 
change in residence. 

The Counseling Center and HELP Center were avail- 
able to assist students who wanted to learn more about 
themselves or just wanted someone to talk to. All con- 
sultations were strictly confidential. For anyone need- 
ing treatment for any type of illness or injury or even 
for a routine exam, the Health Center had enough 
services to satisfy everyone's needs. Students could 
make appointments or just walk in for free routine 
health care. 

144 Student Services 


The Disabled Student Service Center helped dis- 
abled students make better use of campus facilities. 
General information, counseling and special equip- 
ment was available to anyone who needed it. 

Students could receive general information about 
the University from a number of sources. The campus 
information center provided phone numbers of any 
organization, office or individual on campus, and the 
Stamp Union information desk offered information on 
a wide range of questions, from phone numbers to bus 
schedules. The S.T.A.R. Center Academic and Tutor 
Information was best known for its full stack of old 
exams from just about every subject offered at the 
University, and the recreation facilities office provided 
information about what was taking place with regard to 
all sorts of recreation and intramural activities. 

Students that were close to graduation often found 
the Career Center a big help. The Center offered guid- 
ance in the areas of resume writing and job searching as 
well as basic information on finding out exactly where 
to begin when deciding on career goals. 

These were just a few of the services offered at the 
University of Maryland. There were many other ser- 
vices, including such things as the Human Relations 
Office, Maryland Media, the student legal aid office 
and study abroad information, just to name a few. The 
resources available were almost endless. For interested 
students, the best way to find out what was available 
and how it could be used was simply to ask.

ments in numerous community service pro- 
grams in order to supplement their areas of 
academic study. P.A.C.E. helped hundreds of

and social maturity, as well as to prepare them 
for experiences not usually available in the aca- 
demic setting.

To increase knowledge of manage- 
ment, each semester SAM not only 
held seminars relating to business, but 
also invited presidents of multi-million 
dollar corporations to campus to share 
with students their management views 
and experiences. In the past, SAM 
hosted the presidents of Quaker Oats, 
Pepco, Black & Decker, Harper & Row 
Publishing, Fairchild Industries, Camp- 
bell Soup, Holiday Inn and Resorts In- 
ternational. SAM gave students and 
faculty exciting opportunities to not 
only gain a non-textbook knowledge of 
management, but also meet influential 
executives of diverse industries.

Cultural Center 

In 1985, Nyumburu Cultural Center had served 
the University of Maryland community for 15 
years. It continued to build on its foundation as 
the Center for Afro-American cultural, intellectu- 
al and social interaction. 

Nyumburu's many productions included lec- 
tures and seminars on various subjects, art exhib- 
its, presentations and workshops in dramatic arts, 
dance, aerobics, creative writing and self defense. 
It also presented concerts in blues, jazz and gospel 
music as well as academic courses in blues and 
jazz. The 1985 distinguished artist-scholar series 
attracted some of the areas best to interact with 
the students. 

Nyumburu's Miss Black Unity pageant had be- 
come one of the campus' most meaningful and 
popular events by 1985. In its 8th year, the pageant 
united student groups to make the event a suc- 
cessful one. 

Nyumburu was the home of the famous Mary- 
land Gospel Choir, which celebrated its 10-year 
anniversary in the spring. 

Black student organizations utilized the facility 
and its resources on a constant basis. The center 
served as a resource to the general population by 
highlighting the rich and positive aspects of Afro- 
American culture.

to complete an extensive electee pro- 
gram to demonstrate these qualities. Aca- 
demic standards were high; students 
asked to join had to be in the top eighth 
of their junior class and top fifth of their 
senior class. Tau Beta Pi was not only an 
honorary, but also an active honor society 
providing tutoring services, engineering 
student orientations, and student aides in 
the dean's office, as well as community 
services such as bloodmobiles, computer 
workshops and food drives.

"Delta Sigma Pi: We Mean Business. 


Delta Sigma Pi, an international, professional business fraternity, had over 210 chapters across the nation. Their 
membership was open to students who were majoring in business, pre-business or economics. 

The satisfaction of being a Delta Sig was unmatched in the business world or other areas of college life, and Delta Sig 
alumni could be found in all the top Fortune 500 companies across the United States. 

In Delta Sigma Pi, students learned about professionalism, social interaction and many other aspects of the business 
world. It was also a great way to make new and everlasting friendships. Among their activities in 1985, members 
organized a trip to Atlantic City and hosted speakers who talked about such issues as Coca-Cola's marketing strategy, 
sex roles in business and views of the Washington Post. Delta Sigs also had an unforgettable time at their 35th 
anniversary formal, as well as at the many other parties and social events held throughout the semester.

The Gymkana 

In 1946, Dr. David Field, a University profes- 
sor, gathered together a handful of Maryland 
students who were interested in gymnastics. 
Under his leadership, the group of eight men 
and two women displayed their talent in gym- 
nastics and soon became well-known in local 
communities for their fine performances. 

Each year, the student interest rapidly in- 
creased, making the Troupe and its fame ex- 
pand. After a few years. Dr. Field left the Uni- 
versity and turned over the directorship to his 
former Gymkana student, George F. Kramer. 

After an unsuccessful attempt to become 
recognized by the University as a competitive 
collegiate sport, the Troupe reverted to its 
original practice of presenting exhibitional pro- 
grams, including entertainment of armed 
forces personnel at home and abroad during 
the Korean War. It was during this period of 
extensive travel that the Troupe became 
known as "The Ambassadors of Good Will." 

The members of the Troupe felt that Gym- 
kana was much more than just another student 
interest organization. Aside from the obvious 
benefits of meeting people of interest and de- 
veloping new social contacts, the Troup of- 
fered the individual a rare opportunity to travel 
and perform publicly. The goals set by the 
troupe included the extension of fellowship 
and good will, the stimulation of interest in and 
understanding of gymnastics, and the develop- 
ment of the Troupers, both physically and 

In the past, the Troupe featured tumbling, 
hand balancing, juggling, free exercise, pyra- 
mids, Olympic apparatus and comedy routines, 
in a normal one and a half hour performance. 
Perfecting skills and acts througout the year, 
the Troupe ended its season with the annual 
"Home Show," presented at the University. 

One unique feature of the Troupe was that it 
provided an opportunity for all students to par- 
ticipate, regardless of their initial gymnastic 
ability. Few of its members went into their first 
practice with any great degree of gymnastic 
ability, but with the help of returning Troupers 
and the talented coaching staff, newcomers 
quickly found themselves "getting into shape. " 

Thus, the Troupe promoted the learning 
process. Consequently, being a part of one of 
the oldest and last performing gymnastic orga- 
nizations in the country was an educational ex- 
perience for its members. 

As a co-ed organization, the Troupe, under 
the direction of Mr. Joseph Murray, looked 
forward to presenting a season of highly stimu- 
lating exhibitional gymnastics. 






Greek Community 

Boosts Spirit Today 

As In The Past 

The Greek family at the U. of MD con- 
sisted of the brothers and sisters of 38 
fraternities and sororities, and offered 
students a unique way to experience 
college life. 

Beginning with desserts and mixers 
and leading to Homecoming, formals 
and Greek Week, the fun never seemed 
to end. Even singing silly songs and recit- 
ing ttie Greek alphabet had meaning. 

Service activities were a major part of 
what Greek life was all about. Through 
fundraisers and campaigns, money was 
raised for philanthropies of importance 
to society and everyone benefitted as a 

Whether or not a brother or sister lived 
in a Greek house, there was a deep 
sense of belonging that existed. No* 
where else were so many people able 
to boast of such close relationships as 
ttiose that developed within the Greek 

A loyal commitment to family and a 
strong feeling of pride radiated from all 
Greeks. And it was out of that atmo- 
sphere ttKit grew responsibility, leader- 
ship, individuality and, most of all, 







The Greek Society came alive for a week of fun 
and fundraising April 8th thru IJlh during Sigma 
Chi fraternity's Second Annual Derby Daze 

Sigma Chi brothers were assigned to "coach" dif- 
ferent sororities, and together they designed projects 
which, all together, raised S6.000 for charity, making 
Derby Daze the second largest fundraiser on campus. 
One such project was an advertising book in which 
each ad generated funds for the charities. 

The brothers also guided the sororities through a 
number of spirited events, beginning with the Soror- 
ity House Decorations Contest. Next, the sororities 
collected signatures from Sigma Chi Brothers in the 
Smiling Sigs Contest by using jokes and other antics 
to make them smile, and a few sisters were sent flying 
around corners into parked cars in the hair-raising 
Bike Race. 

Vehicles of a different kind races down College 
Avenue on Friday afternoon during the Bed Race. 
With help from their future Greek Week fraternity 
partners, the sororities recaptured the days of build- 
ing go-carts and Were able to construct slreetworthy 
beds such as a pillow-clad wheelbarrow, a black bed 
called the "Death Bed." and a unique version of the 
Batmobile. Delta Delta Delta sorority and Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon fraternity proved they knew the road 
best when their four-poster creation rolled into first 

Later, Sigma Chi brothers had to hold on to their 
hats as sorority sisters tried to snatch them in the 

Derby Grab, the event that brought the derby theme 
to life. While in pursuit, competition was fierce be- 
tween the sororities as sisters wrestled, tripped and 


forget to hold on to his hat while he ran and the wind 
would send it sailing into the hands of the nearest 

Other events during the week included a banner 
contest, skits and Olympics, and on Saturday night 
the competition came to a close. Awards were given 
to Delta Delta Delta for capturing the first place 
trophy. Gamma Phi Beta for second place and Delta 
Gamma for third. Afterwards, a party at the Sigma 
Chi house marked the end of Derby Daze and the 
beginning of Greek Week. 

The money raised during Derby Daze went com- 
pletely to charity. Half was given to the sororities to 
divide among their designated charities and the rest 
was donated by Sigma Chi to the D.C. Children's 
Hospital and The Wallace House, a home for retard- 
ed children. 

By the end of the week, all hats were off to the 
Sigma Chi brothers for proving that Charlie Chaplin

A Week For Greeks 

Normally just an average place for 
daytime football games, Fraternity Row 
became the site of a massive carnival as 
fraternities and sororities joined to- 
gether to celebrate Greek Week, April 

The overall theme for 1985 was 
"Prime Time," and the Greek teams 
worked hard to come up with their 
own variations. The results, displayed 
on the backs of their t-shirts, ranged 
from "The Love Boat" to "The 

Competition was in the air, and 
events went from the usual to the bi- 
zarre as Greeks competed in every- 
thing from Softball to pyramid building. 
One original relay even involved ex- 
changing clothes! Even the scavenger 
hunt was unique, having items such as 
polka dot boxer shorts. Ken & Barbie 
dolls and an orthodontic retainer on 
the list of things to find. 

The primary goal of the week, 
though, was not just to have fun, but to 

have fun while raising money for chari- 
ties. Each Greek team built and main- 
tained a philanthropy booth at which 
such items as shaving cream pies and 

water guns were sold throughout the 
week. One of the more popular booths 
was none other than a kissing booth set 
up by Phi Sigma Sigma sorority and Al- 

pha Epsilon Phi fraternity. Who could 
resist a kiss for charity? The profits from 
these sales and other fundraisers during 
the week went to such worthy causes 
as the Leukemia Foundation and the 
Muscular Dystrophy Association. 

At the end of the week, the points 
earned during athletic, spirit and spe- 
cial events were tallied. Sweeping the 
competition was the team of Pi Kappa 
Alpha fraternity and Alpha Omicron Pi 
sorority, which won the Olympic and 
dance contests, the scavenger hunt, 
the spirit award and the overall award, 
among others. 

The week-long party went out with a 
bang Friday night with fireworks and a 
concert on the row. The festivities 
slowly wound to a close to the sounds 
of Rods and Cones, and Saturday was 
remembered by all as "the day of

176 Creek Week 

The Greek system was know for its semi-informal activities which 
entertained and brought together its many groups, especially in the name 
of competition. One such event was the Thumper Tournament, which took 
place in the spring. 

Held on a semi nightly basis, various fraternities and sororities came 
together to take part in this event during its several month long duration. 
Thumper was an innovative, almost complicated drinking game consisting 
of hand signals, stringent rules, and hand-to-eye/mouth coordination. 

The tournament culminated in a final show-down during Greek Week 
when the winners were determined. The victors. Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
fraternity and Delta Delta Delta sorority, came away with the final title 
and the knowledge that they were the best Thumpers around. 




Creek Week 177 

With baited breath and hearts pounding, 
they made their way towards the room. Just 
outside the door they stopped, trying to gath- 
er enough courage to go in. Finally, with all 
the determination they could muster, they 
headed in. Good or bad, they had to know. 
Were they Greek or not? 

One of the biggest events in the fall was 
formal rush, and over 1,000 anxious students 
went to party after party with their fingers 
crossed, hoping to be accepted into Greek 

Between Sept 4 & 13, each sorority held 
over 34 separate parties for prospective rush- 
ees, and after each set, rushees flocked ner- 
vously to pick up their invitation cards. 

Eventually, the choice was narrowed down 
to each girl's two favorite sororities. Most 
girls signed, sealed and delivered their bid 

each got a pledge pin to prove it. 

Some fraternities and sororities did not fill 
the pledge quota, the maximum number of 
pledges that each house is allowed to accept. 
After formal rush, those houses had the un- 
enviable task of battling yet another hectic 
party schedule. This time, however, rush was 
only a week long and was much smaller and 
more informal. 

All in all, everyone would agree that, 
whether or not they pledged, rush was a busy 
and enlightening experience. 

Diane Westcott 

cards in only a few minutes; others took the maxi- 
mum time of 90 minutes. Picking just one sorority 
on the bid card was very hard for some rushees, and 
the room was filled with tension. 

Less than 24 hours later, a massive herd of soror- 
ity rushees pushed their way into the Union to see if 
they had been accepted by the sorority they were 
dying to get into. Girls with torn-open envelopes 
were everywhere, and emotions ranged from relief 
and excitement to disappointment and depression. 
There were smiles and there was laughter, but there 
were tears as well. Not everyone was accepted into 
their desired house. 

For those going through fraternity rush, the pro- 
cess was not as frightening. The parties were less 
formal, and there were not as many. The anticipa- 
tion, however, was the same for both male and fe- 
male rushees. 

From the moment the bid cards were signed, hun- 
dreds of rushees became formal pledges. The wait- 
ing was over. They were in, and a few days later 

178 Rushing 

The Rushing Experience 

The decision to pledge was always a very serious one, and, once the bid card had been 
signed, many pledges felt they had given up the rest of their lives. They devoted 
themselves completely as they prepared to experience their longest semester. 

Recognizable in a crowd, pledges stood out from other students because of the 
glowing of their pins. In addition, bright Greek letters began appearing on sweatshirts, 
socks and t-shirts all over campus. 

The semester was packed with activities. Some, like the weekly chapter meetings, 
were mandatory; others were just plain fun! Mixers and desserts were among the 
favorite events, and everyone looked forward to developing the themes. Whether 
Hawaiian style or disaster designed, no theme 
was ever boring! 

Major events such as Homecoming and 
Greek Week were especially hectic times for 
pledges, but they enjoyed the chance to show 
their true Greek spirit. Competing against 
other fraternities and sororities was a great 
way to meet other people, too. 

The most memorable events of the semester 
were Pledge Debut and formals. All pledges 
were formally introduced at Pledge Debut to 
the entire Greek system, followed by hours of 
dancing and laughter. Enjoyed by all Greeks, 
formals offered an opportunity to dress up and 
party for an entire glamorous evening. 

As the semester came to a close, the goal of 
initiation was finally realized and the pledge 
became an official brother or sister. Once 
initiation was over, pledging became a thing of 
the past. The pressures of pledging were over, 
and memories, as well as the beginning of a 
new life — a Greek life — had begun.

Alpha Xi Delta 

Alpha Xi Delta was founded on April 
15, 1893 at Lombard College in Illinois. 
The Beta Eta chapter was formed at the 
University of Maryland in March, 1934 
and today is located at 4517 Knox 

Alpha Xi's had 60 sisters and 31 
pledges in the Fall of '85. Of those 91 
women, no two were alike. Alpha Xi 
Delta prided itself on diversity. 

In 1985 the sorority was active in all 
aspects of Greek and campus life. Mem- 
bers were orientation advisors, rush 
counselors, Diamondback editors and 
fraternity little sisters. In 1983 and 
1984, the "Greek Woman of the Year" 
was an Alpha Xi.

Alpha Chi Omega 


Within the spectrum of Alpha Chi Omega 
sorority lay a sisterhood of friendship, love and 
sincerity. Striving for diversity and active in- 
volvement within their house, chapter members 
could be found participating in many Green and 
campus activities. 

AChiO took special pride in the activities it 
participated in as a chapter. Alpha Chis looked 
forward to their 100 year birthday in 1985. The members 
worked together to benefit their philanthropies, showing their 
abounding spirit and unity. Homecoming, Greek Week, and 
Dance Marathon were other events for which Alpha Chis gave 
their all. 

Academics ranked high on their list of priorities, too, and 
they had an active scholarship program within the chapter. So 
. . . when Alpha Chis could not be seen pulling all-nighters in 
the library, they could be found at formals, dated parties and 
desserts that just added to the special times that could be 
discovered at Alpha Chi Omega. 

Alpha Chi Omega was no ONE thing. It was work, fun, 
friendship and good times. It consisted of 109 active members 
and it was located at 4525 College Ave.

Located at 7401 Princeton Ave., Theta Chi held many 
social and collegiate activities such as the infamous Drink-

won the 1985 Anchor Splash and was awarded the most 
spirited float award for Homecoming '85 with Delta Gam- 
ma sorority. 

Theta Chi's Regional Three Convention was held here in 
the spring of '85. It was the largest convention in Theta 
Chi's history with over 400 brothers attending. Alpha Psi 
members were very proud to have been a part of it.

Phi Sigma Sigma 

There were 1 16 girls making up the strong sisterhood of 
Phi Sigma Sigma, which has been rapidly growing since it 
was founded on Sov. 26. 1913, at Hunters College in New 

All the sisters shared a common bond — a love for Phi 
Sigma Sigma — and were proud to wear their letters around 
campus. Phi Sigma Sigma was more than Just a sorority of 
women. It had a special meaning of sharing dreams, hopes, 
goals and disappointments. Most of all. Phi Sig meant shar- 
ing close friendships, love and "the best years of our lives." 

They worked together as a unit, striving to reach their 
goals of success. All the members of Phi Sig were involved in 
many activities inside the house as well as with campus 
activities and community services. They continuously raised 
money for their philanthropy, the National Kidney Founda- 
tion, and. annually, they held an amazing flea market filled 
with vendors. 

Besides working together, they also parlied together. 
Nights at the 'Vous and fraternity parties kept the Phi Sigs a 
close sisterhood. They engaged in many on-campus activities 
such as Homecoming. Dance Marathon. Derby Days and 
Greek Week. Our parties included formals twice a year. 
dated parties, crush parties and desserts. 

College was a great time, and being in Phi Sigma Sigma 
helped by adding to the memories. We'll miss our 28 seniors 
who graduated this May. and we hope their rememberance 
of Phi Sigma Sigma is as bright as their future . . .

Sigma Delta Tau sorority was found- 
ed nationally at Cornell University in 
March of 1917. The Alpha Theta chap- 
ter at the University of Maryland was 
established on March 22, 1952. 

Since the beginning, SDT members 
always took advantage of the opportu- 
nity to work with all types of people 
while learning the basic elements of 
good group living and developing last- 
ing friendships with a feeling of belong- 
ing. Individuality and strong unity were 
among the many outstanding charac- 
teristics of our 120 members, who 
came from as far away as Georgia. 
Florida and New York and as close as 
Silver Spring, Md. 

As an active sorority, SDT could al- 
ways be found participating in campus 
and Greek activities. We were active 
in annual events, such as Homecoming, 
Dance Marathon and Greek Week, and 
sisters were members of many student 
organizations, including the Panhellen- 
ic Executive Board, the tennis and la- 
crosse teams. Terrapin Yearbook and 
various honorary societies. 

There was always something to do in 
SDT. Planned events such as desserts, 
crush parties, dated parties and formals 

were numerous, and sisters were always together at other times as well. Even 
throughout the fun, though, we always found time to uphold the overall house

Delta Upsilon 

Delta Upsilon was founded in 1834, making it the 
sixth oldest and first non-secretive fraternity. There was 
no secret motto, ritual or seal for Delta Upsilon, and its 
openness distinguished it from other, fraternities. 

The first Delta Upsilon chapter was founded at Wil- 
liams College in Williamstown, Mass., as a social frater- 
nity aiming to protest a buses by secret societies. By being 
discriminatory, secret societies caused a widespread 
movement against Greek organizations. 

According to Dr. Joseph Walt, the historian for Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon fraternity. "Delta Upsilon was different, a 
consequence of a wave of anti-fraternity sentiment that 
threatened to destroy the few infant fraternities that 
existed in the early I830's." 

On May 13, 1972, the University of Maryland chapter 
received its charter from Delta Upsilon International 
Fraternity and was given a house on Fraternity Row two 
years later. Since then. Delta Upsilon developed a char- 
acter to meet the challenges of the I980's. Its members 
were more socially, athletically and academically active 
in 1985 than ever before, but they would not be satisfied 
until they had met their maximum potential.

Delta Sigma Phi 

The 1985-1986 school year was a year of firsts for the Alpha Sigma chapter of Delta Sigma Phi fraternity. 

Philanthropy activities included a haunted house fundraiser in Burke, Va., and a Delta Sigma rock concert, both of which ben- 
efitted the March of Dimes. 

Their theme for Homecoming was "Woodstock Revived in '85. " and they had one of the largest turnouts of Delta Sig alumni 
in recent memory. 

Renovations to their house were extensive during the year, costing more than $12,000 for the bottom floor alone. Other 
changes were in the planning stages. 

In the fall, one of the Delta Sigs' most memorable activities was the party sponsored by the Maryland chapter. Five other 
chapters from three surrounding states were house guests for a unique weekend of fun and brotherhood. 

Victor J. Pascoe began his first full year as chapter supervisor in '85. serving his brothers well. Also. Bill Steele began his first

Alpha Omicron Pi 

Alpha Omicron Pi, University of Mary-

on October 25, 1924. A commitment of 
AOPi meant a comrpitment to integrity, 
dignity, scholarship and college loyalty. 
Through community, campus and philan- 
thropic involvement, sisters strove to 
achieve these goals. 

AOPis were very active in the Universi- 
ty through involvement in campus groups 
and activities, including intramurals, the 
Diamondback, WMUC, Maryland Judi- 

cial Board, Jimenez Language Lab, 
Turner Lab and S.G.A. Throughout the 
Greek system, AOPis were active in Pan- 
hel, with current members as outgoing 
president and philanthropy chairman. In 
addition, several sisters were members of 
the two Greek honor societies. Order of 
Omega and Omicron Delta Kappa. 

AOPi was also very proud of philan- 
thropic events and support. The sorority 
strongly supported its national philanthro- 
py, The National Arthritis Research 

Foundation, through an annual casino 
night, held every spring to raise thousands 
of dollars. 

Their local philanthropy. The National 
Blood Bank, was supported through se- 
mesterly blood drives held in the Stamp 
Union. AOPi also had fundraisers to sup- 
port the Wendy Lou Stark Fund, a schol- 
arship given by the College of Journalism. 

The commitment that AOPi made to 
the University, as well as to fellow Greeks, 
made every sister very proud.

Phi Sigma Delta 


Once again. Phi Sigma Delta chapter of 
Zeta Beta Tau fraternity experienced a 
banner year - in the chapter, throughout 
the campus and community, and even on 
the national level. 

Led by President and Vice-President 
Larry Fundler and Craig Kessler, the 
chapter had a phenomenal membership 
drive, recruiting and pledging over 50 
brothers during the school year. That 
brought PSD membership to just under 
100 strong . . . one of the biggest houses on 
campus. No year's beginning was com- 
plete, however, without the mention of 
PSD's famous opening day party, where 
literally hundreds came to party with 
brothers at 14 Frat Row. 

Fall for PSD was dominated by two 
things - sports and Dance Marathon. The 
Dancers Against Cancer displayed awe- 
some results in '85, raising nearly 
$100,000 and making the 16 year total 
American Cancer Society donation hit the 
$1 million mark. In sports, PSD captured 
the flag football championships hands 
down. What a fall! 

Around winter break, several brothers 
of PSD were initiated into Order of Ome- 
ga, and the fraternity even snuck in a 
Who's Who member. While all this was 
going on, the PSD Little Sister program 
was going strong. Homecoming was a 
blast and the annual PSD Animal House 
Party brought the doors down (and part of 

the rooO all night long. 

Spring came and PSD once again led 
the campus in athletics as brothers vied to 
regain their No. I rating in College Park 
intramurals. Their April Fool's Day party 
was a smash and the annual Spring Away 
Weekend made for an excellent social 

Several PSD members were also active 
on the Interfraternity Council, Judicial 
Board and a host of other worthwhile cam- 
pus and civic organizations. 

PSD remains a College Park power- 
house. Before 1985 had ended, members 
were already looking forward to the next 
year and becoming bigger and better than

Pi Kappa Alpha 


Founded at 47 West Range of the University of Virginia 
on March I, 1868, Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity had a rich 
history of leadership and service in the University of Mary- 
land community. Priding itself on an ability to attract select 
yet diverse young men, the brotherhood's ranks included 
varsity athletes, student leaders and dean's list scholars. 

Since its beginning at the University of Maryland in 
1952, the Delta Psi chapter grew continuously in size and 
strength. Several very successful rushes recently set the 
tone for the most outstanding semesters in the fraternity's 
history. Together with Alpha Omicron Pi sorority, the 
brothers dominated Greek Week '85, taking four first place 
trophies and the overall award. Homecoming '85 was also 
another successful event for the Pikes, and their float was 
awarded the first place trophy. 

Of course, the Pikes always prided themselves on their 
social lives. With Pike's Peak in the fall and Swampwater in 
the spring, the Pikes always showed their ability to throw 
great parties.

est and largest college fraternities. 
It was originally founded in Bolo- 
gna, Italy, in the 15th century. It 
was reborn in the New World at

cember 10, 1869. 

In 1985, there were 185 under- 
graduate chapters and five colonies 
at leading colleges and universities 
throughout the United States and 
Canada. There were also over 115 
alumni chapters, which reflected 
the continuing interest of graduate 
Kappa Sigmas in their fraternity.

Alpha Gamma Rho 

Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity was founded at Ohio 
State University and the University of Illinois in 1908. 
The Alpha Theta Chapter was established at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland in 1928. 

The brothers of Alpha Gamma Rho were very active 
in agriculture and participated in other related clubs on 
campus as well as in the Greek society. 

The president of the Collegiate 4-H, among others in 
AG council, wore the AG R pin. Alpha Gamma Rho was 
one of only a handful of professional, social fraternities. 

AGR would like to take this time to celebrate its 57th 
year on campus by saluting its forefathers who strove to 
be different.

Kappa Kappa Gamma 

Kappa Kappa Gamma, founded 
in 1870, had a tradition of out- 
standing members in the Greek sys- 
tem and on campus. 

The sisters took pride in the di- 
versity of their membership, which 
encompassed such areas as campus 
sports, poms, student government 
and many honoraries. Through 
combined efforts in promoting 
scholarship, philanthropic endeav- 
ors, social a wareness and a general 
appreciation and understanding be- 

tween members, Kappa provided 
an opportunity to enhance out- 
standing leadership, social and liv- 
ing experiences. 

Kappas were always busy with 
the many activities occurring with- 
in the Greek system: Homecoming, 
Greek Week, tailgates, desserts and 
Kappa's own special parties and 
formals. The social calendar was 
kept quite full and exciting. The 
Kappa house served as home for 56 
sisters and was the focal point for 

weekly meetings and other chapter 

Friendship and a shared belief in 
Kappa ideals were the basis for the 
success of the fraternity. With a 
very strong heritage and national 
organization. Kappa truly helped 
its members develop as strong indi- 
viduals. It provided an experience 
that lasted far beyond the years 
spent in college.

In 1985, AEPhi filled its trophy case with a 3rd place for Greek 
Week '85, 2nd place for Homecoming '85 and 1st place for 
Dance Marathon '85. The sorority was proud of the fact that it 
raised over $16,000 for the American Cancer Society during the 
Dance Marathon. 

AEPhi also supported its national philanthropy, Chaim Sheba, 
a hospital for children in Israel. 

AEPhi members were full of energy and always strived to work 
with others in the Greek community.

spotted all over campus in 1985. They 
were active participants in Greek life and 
on-campus activities, as well as members 
of honorary societies and recipients of 

Alpha Phi had a tremendous rush in 
1985. Rush Director Nancy Belt led the 
house to reach the quota of 41 pledges. 
Alpha Phi was very pleased with their out- 
standing 1985 pledge class. 

Homecoming 1985 was not only an 
amazing week of fun and new friendships, 
but a huge success as well. Alpha Phi and 
FIJI fraternity worked closely together to 
sweep the competition in their favor. They 
won the talent contest and banner compe- 

tition, making Alpha Phi and FIJI the 
overall Homecoming winners.

The Recolonization of Alpha Delta Pi 

The 33 new pledges of Alpha Delta Pi sorority were anxious, ambitious and excited to become an active 
part of the Greek system at the University of Maryland. 

Determination and participation were two important aspects to the success of any organization and the 
Alpha Delta Pis were on their way to being successful! Events that introduced the new Alpha Delta Pis to 
the Greek system included two well-attended rush parties, tailgates, desserts with various fraternities, 
pledge retreat and the challenge of being pledges while taking on the responsibilities of actives. Their 
Homecoming activities greatly contributed to making the new Alpha Delta Pis known throughout the 
Greek system. 

The Alpha Delta Pis looked forward to spring rush, where they hoped to increase their numbers while en- 
joying the opportunity to meet and work with other Greek organizations.

Phi Kappa Tau 


Phi Kappa Tau celebrated its 
35th Homecoming at the Universi- 
ty of Maryland in 1985. The ex- 
travaganza was held at the Silver 
Spring Holiday Inn and welcomed 
back alumni from across the Unit- 
ed States. Some came from as far 
as Texas and California for this 

In December, Phi Kappa Tau 
held elections and five new officers 
were elected. All of them worked 
hard to put Phi Kappa Tau into the 

upper echelon of Maryland's fra- 
ternities. The new officers were 
president Gary Quinn, vice presi- 
dent Joe Harr, treasurer Harry 
Potter, social chairman Kent Nich- 
ols and membership orientation

ebrated the 35th anniversary of its 
charter at Maryland. A formal cel- 
ebration took place at the Calvert

old, displayed the real spirit of 
brotherhood. Also at the formal 
were tentative plans announced by 
the Board of Governors to renovate 
the house on 7404 Hopkins A venue 
sometime in the near future.

spirit that particular brotherhood

Students Learn 

Through Maryland's 

Scholastic Rigors 

Nothing ever comes easy, and most stu- 
dents at Maryland realized that early in their 
college careers. Many late nights and early 
mornings were spent cramming for exams 
and typing papers that had been put off for 

From classes beginning at 8:00 a.m. to labs 
lasting until 5:00 p.m., many students paid a 
high price for their endeavors. Carrying 18 
credits and holding down part-time jobs at 
the same time created great pressure, espe- 
cially for those paying for school on their 
own. Long days contributed even more to the 
burden of a heavy workload. 

For the majority, when the day's classes 
had ended, the work had just begun. Papers 
had to be written, books had to be read and 
notes had to be studied. Hours were spent 
inside the walls of Hornbake and McKeldin 
when the dorms became too rowdy for 

Because of Its diverse range of academic 
fields, Maryland had something to offer ev- 
eryone. No matter how unusual a major was, 
chances were that Maryland had it, and, if 
not, it could always be created. 

All In all, achievement was always a chal- 
lenge. Good grades never came easy, and 
everyone was, at one time or another, ready 
to give up. Most held on 'til the end, however, 
and for them, success had never tasted 

In Search Of Wisdom 

Academics . . . The word alone conjures up images of notes and textbooks piled high on our desks, 
crowded buildings and classroom lectures, late-night cram sessions and, of course, hour after hour spent 
hunting for research materials in the famed stacks of our beloved libraries. 

Academics means much more, though, and in these last busy days of our college years we should stop 
for just a moment to remember why we were here. 

We weren't here for the grades, though of course they were important; and we weren't here for the fun 
of all-niters and we weren't here for the pressure. We were here to learn. We were here on a quest for 
knowledge — the greatest gift to man. Without knowledge we are nothing. We could have no careers, no 
achievements and no goals. 

We live in a society dependent upon knowledge. Our future depends on our past, and we must learn of 
events gone by. Our successes depend upon our accomplishments which, in turn, depend on our level of 
knowledge. We must learn from our mistakes; therefore, we must understand our actions. And we must 

continue to advance, to push forward in a never-ending attempt to better ourselves and our world. These 
are the principles that guide our lives. These principles are all based upon widsom. 

Knowledge is the key to our success, both as individuals and as a society. In college we are given the 
opportunity to learn. We took many classes at the University of Maryland, some required, most chosen. 
We read many books and heard many lectures. We were often discouraged. Sometimes we were even 
ready to give up, but we did not. 

Now, here we are: studying for finals, selling back books and checking our grades, all for the last time. 
We worked hard to get where we are and should be proud of our perseverance. We have all learned a lot 
— both in and out of the classroom — and we have grown a great deal. 

Our quest for knowledge should not end with graduation. There will always be new things to learn. 
Only when our hunger for wisdom ceases to exist will our lives be incomplete. Our college days are over, 
but the learning process has just begun. We will forever be ... in search of wisdom.

President John S. Toll 

1985 was a busy year for University President John S. Toll. 

Reaffirming his top ten goal, Toll sought a comnnitment from his faculty 
to boost the University's standing in the collegiate ranks. His efforts 
proved rewarding as demonstrated by a National Academy of Sciences 
report confirming that fvlaryland was "among the top ten state universi- 
ties of the nation in more disciplines than any other university in the 
Northeastern United States." 

In addition to his University duties, Toll took on responsibilities as a 
member of the board of directors of the American Council on Education, 
a member of the awards committee for Phi Beta Kappa Associates and 
a member of the executive committee of the Southern Regional Educa- 
tion Board. 

Before being appointed as president of the University in 1978, Toll 
spent 13 years as chairman and professor of the department of physics 
and astronomy. Toll's quest for academic excellence was personally 
Important because he wanted Maryland students to receive as distin- 
guished an education as he had. Toll received a bachelor's degree in 
physics from Yale and then continued at Princeton for a master's degree 
and doctoral degree in advanced physics.

Chancellor John B. Slaughter 

University Chancellor John Brooks Slaughter hoped 1985 would be 
remembered by students as a year in which the University "became a 
more personal place, less wedded to bureaucracy, rules and 

Indeed, 1985 saw increased maintenance of University facilities and 
the addition of signs that made the University less complex, especially 
for new students and visitors. 

The year was also marked by increased community involvement by 
the chancellor and his staff. A vice-chancellor for community affairs post 
was created, and Slaughter himself was active as the chairman of both 
the Prince George's County Public Schools Community Advisory Coun- 
cil on Magnet and Compensatory Education and the Governor's Task 
Force on Teen Pregnancy. 

On the national front. Slaughter was selected as ACC representative 
to the NCAA President's Commission and was asked by the commission 
to be its chairman. 

Ultimately, Slaughter was confident that the University made signifi- 
cant strides in '85 in the creation of the "model multi-racial, multi-cultural 
and multi-generational community" that he felt it could be.

The Stage Is Set, 
The Curtain Opens, 
It's Time To Go On 


Senior year — the longest-awaited 
time of every student's college career. 

At the University of Maryland, 
seniors had to battle the horrors of Lot 
4, huge lectures and Stamp Union 
crowds many times to get to the end. 
They endured four or more years of 
walking to class in the snow and rain 
and standing on more registration and 
wait-list lines than they cared to 
remember. So close to graduation, 
though, all the hard work and hectic 
days seemed worthwhile to most. 

For many students, senior year was 
the busiest time of all. Classes were 
harder, studying took longer and 
extracurricular activities took up more 
time than ever. With all the 
responsibilities of work, school and 
family, most seniors did little sleeping. 
And, on top of everything else, 
graduate or medical school applications 
had to be filled out, resumes had to be 
compiled and interview after interview 
had to be scheduled. Waiting for mail 
had never been as difficult as it was for 
seniors expecting letters of response 
that would affect the rest of their lives. 

Students were proud to be seniors. 
They were proud of what they had 
accomplished at U. of Md., and they 
were proud of having made it all the 
way. Most of all, they were proud to 
have been a part of the Maryland 

Best of luck to the Class of '86.

The Support Of Mom, Dad, And Special Friends 


Do You Remember . . . 

The Spirit Of Giving 

1985 was a year for giving, and none showed this spirit more than 
artists in the music industry. 

After Britain's Bob Geldof started the ball rolling with Band Aid's 
"Do They Know It's Christmas" release last year, American artists 
soon followed suit with "We Are The World," the hit song on the 
USA For Africa album. Led by Stevie Wonder, 45 of America's best 
joined together in the effort, which raised more than $37 million for 
African hunger projects in record, poster and video sales. 

Next came Live Aid, the July concert organized by Band Aid 
leader Bob Geldof that raised more than $70.5 million to save lives in 
Africa. For 16 hours, artists from around the world performed 
simultaneously on stages in London and Philadelphia in a concert 
attended by thousands and broadcast to an audience of 1.5 billion. 

The Live Aid Foundation 
^^^^ now distributes money 

raised from this and other 
charity events to projects 
designed to eliminate world 
hunger from its Washington 

Farm Aid, organized by 
country singer Willie Nel- 
son, was the next major mu- 
sical fundraiser. More than 
50 country and rock per- 
formers put on a 15 hour 
show in Champaign, 111., 
raising $10 million and leg- 
islative support for Ameri- 
can farmers. 

Other charity events dur- 
ing the year included Lon- 
don's Fashion Aid show, the 
Canadian artists formation 
of Northern Lights for Afri- 
can Society and the organi- 
zation of Artists United 
Against Apartheid. 

AIDS-the disease that frightened 
the nation. 

When Roci( Hudson announced 
this year that he had AIDS, America 
was forced to face the fact that this 
deadly disease was endangering the 
health of our country. The death of 
this famous public figure made the 
lethal virus impossible to ignore any 

Since then, more than $1 .8 million 
in private contributions has been 
raised to support AIDS research and 
care for AIDS victims. In addition, 
Congress has made AIDS research a 
high priority and set aside $221 mil- 
lion to develop a cure. 

The deadly infection has created a 
panic not only in gay communities, 
but in Hollywood film circles as well. 
After finding the virus in human sali- 
va, the U.S. Center for Disease Con- 
trol warned against the exchange of 
saliva with members of high-risk 
groups. In turn the Screen Actors 
Guild announced that open-mouthed 
kissing was a "possible health haz- 
ard" and began requiring producers 
to notify actors when such scenes 
would be required. 

Politically Speaking 

In the political arena, 1985 was a year for new beginnings and old 

Ronald Reagan renewed his promises to work toward peace and ad- 
vancement in our country and the world as he was sworn in for his second 
term as President of the United States. During the year he received both 
public sympathy, during his cancer operations, and public anger, over his 
decision to visit the Bitburg, West Germany cemetary where 44 Nazi SS 
members were buried. 

One of the most momentous political events of the year was the Novem- 
ber meeting between Reagan and the new Soviet premier Mikhail Gorba- 
chev in Geneva. The two discussed matters of international concern and 
agreed that peace was their most important goal. 

A major first for the U.S. was the recognition given to the veterans of 
the Vietnam War. After 10 years, those who had fought so bravely were 
finally given the honor and respect they had deserved all along. 

Other activities during the year included the groundbreaking for the 
Washington, D.C. Holocaust Memorial Museum, ceremonies around the 
world commemorating the end of World War II and of course, new plans 
for the 1988 presidential campaigns. 

Hard News 

Bad news seemed to be never-ending this 
year as disasters and terrorism continuously 
made the headlines of newspapers around the 

Terrorism was rampant in the Middle East in 
1985. in June, Palestinians hijacked TWA 
flight 847, killing Navy diver Robert Stethem 
and brutalizing many of the other 153 passen- 
gers on board. Then in October, four members 
of the PLO seized an Italian ship, murdering 
American passenger Leon Klinghoffer. Soon 
after, 60 were killed when rescue forces 
stormed a hijacked Egyptian airliner and ter- 
rorists responded with grenades. 

Taking more lives than terrorism, however, 
was the endless series of plane crashes. In Au- 
gust, JAL Flight 1 23 went down killing 520 and 
making it the worst single airplane crash in 
aviation history. The fact that four survived 
was a miracle in itself. For Americans, the 
saddest plane crash came in December when 
248 members of the 101st Airborne Division 
were killed off the coast of Newfoundland on 
their way home for the holidays. 

Natural disasters were also numerous. A 
dam burst in Italy, killing 200 and a Puerto 
Rican landslide took another 1 50 lives. In Mex- 
ico, 5,000 were left dead and 150,000 homeless 
from a severe earthquake; and, not long after, 
Columbia's Nevada del Ruiz Volcano erupted, 
leaving more than 20,000 dead or missing in 
the mud and ashes. Six hurricanes struck dur- 
ing the year as well, of which Gloria was the 
worst. Combined, these stormed caused $5 bil- 
lion damage and 36 deaths. 

Other bad news was man made, especially in 
South Africa. As awareness of apartheid in- 
creased in America, violence and rioting broke 
out almost daily and more than 900 blacks died 
violent deaths. Many, including Bishop Des- 
mond Tutu and Winnie Mandela, struggled to 
achieve peace in their increasingly desperate 

Mengele Remains Confirmed 

After 40 years of searching, Nazi doctor Josef Mengele was finally 

Last summer, the bones of a 1979 drowning victim were cleaned and 
identified in Brazil by forensic anthropologist Dr. David Munoz as the 
remains of Mengele, the infamous "Angel of Death." 

A team of six American experts were then sent to confirm the 
findings and, after a week of study, they did. The most conclusive 
evidence came from the German method of superimposing photo- 
graphs of the young and old Auschwitz head doctor over a same scale 
image of the exhumed skull. There was a perfect match between the 
skull and features, and the team unanimously agreed that the skeleton 
was Mengele. The hunt for the most wanted war criminal was over. 


That's Entertainment 

Newness was everywhere in 1985. and nowhere was it more apparent than in the world of 

As always, television introduced new stars and new favorites. "Miami Vice" received 15 Emmy 
nominations and boosted the Nielsen's for NBC a great deal in 1985. The show's stars Don Johnson 
and Phillip Michael Thomas became America's latest studs, and their bright new fashions began 
appearing in stores across the country. "Family Ties" Michael J. Fo.\ was also thrust into the 
limelight when his hit movie "Back to the Future" made him the newest teen hearthrob. One of the 
year's best new tv programs was "The Cosby Show," the sitcom that followed the antics and 
experiences of the lovable Huxtable family, headed by comedian Bill Cosby. 

The music industry made headlines in 1985 when Bob Geldof organized the Live Aid concert and 
the "We .Are the World" record was released. Farm .Md followed soon after. Bruce Springsteen's 
popularity had never been stronger than during this year, and his "Born in the U.S.A." tour grossed 
more money than any other in concert history. Known for his long performances, Springsteen's 
concert tickets were among the most sought after possessions of the year. Another hot performer in 
1985 was Madonna. W ith her hit movie, "Desperately Seeking Susan," and her steady stream of hit 
songs, .Madonna did not do too badly this year. 

Once again, there were both ups and downs in the movie industry. Sylvester Stallone charged 
onto the screen during the summer as Rambo in a violent and somewhat controversial movie about 
Vietnam. He appeared in theatres again later in the year in a more predictable role when "Rocky 
IV" was released. "Witness", starring Harrison Ford, and "Mask", starring Cher, were two 
memorable dramas, both thought-provoking and emotion-filled. On the lighter side. "St. Elmo's 
Fire"" and "The Breakfast Club" were popular with the younger generation and were top grossing 
films despite many poor reviews. The fact that segments of "St. Elmo's Fire" were filmed on the 
University of Maryland's Fraternity Row made the movie even more of a draw for campus students. 
Other hit films of the year included "Cocoon" and "The Color Purple."" 

Of course, not all of entertainments big names or big moments are mentioned here. Only a few 
have been highlighted. All in all, however, show biz clearly had another fantastic year!

The trends of the year seemed better than ever in 1985. whether for fashion, lifestyle or food. 

In the world of fashion, accessories had never been more important. Glittering pins and gaudy 
earrings were part of almost every female's wardrobe, and fake pearls were a must. Swatch watches 
maintained their status for another year, coming out with new patterns, prints and colors on their 
faces every few months. Springsteen lovers stocked up on t-shirts and bandanas, and traditional 
Levi's blue jeans became fashionable once more. The Madonna Wanna-Be look brought with it lots 
of lace and lingerie. The sexy singer also inspired the latest in boxer shorts — but for women, not 
men. Stirrup pants and Reebok hightops were also hot selling items. For men, the "Miami Vice" 
look came complete with casual sportswear and pastel shirts. Paisley was also big this year, 
appearing on everything from women's shirts to men's ties. 

The yuppie way of life reached its peak in 1985, and wine coolers became the most popular new 
drink of the nation. Of course, fruit flavored waters came in a close second. Wine and cheese were a 
popular yuppie snack, as was caviar. Mini-televisions and VCR's became standard appliances, 
especially in townhouses. Attache cases were more stylish than ever before, and the business card 
business was booming! 

As for food, the Dove Bar became the most popular ice cream snack, and bran was found at 
breakfast tables across the nation in increasing numbers. Gourmet meals were being prepared in 
record time with the help of microwaves and new, modern cookbooks, and salad bars seemed to get 
more elaborate all the time. The battle between the fast food restaurants was hotter than ever in 
1985, and the ad campaigns reached new heights. Even the soda companies introduced new 
creations. There are now more than five variations of Coke, including new Cherry Coke, but Coke 
Classic still seems to be the favorite. The new chocolate sodas were also quickly becoming a big 
selling item. 

Clearly, the choices for food, fashion and every other aspect of life were numerous in 1985. This 
was definitely a year when there was something for everyone. 

James Beard, 81, brought variety to the meals of millions as the 
gourmet expert of American cuisine. 

Yul Brynner, 64, performed the role of the Siamese ruler in "The 
King and I" 4,625 times during his life and won an Oscar for the 1956 

Marc Chagall, 97, will forever be remembered for his exotic and 
colorful artistic style. The subjects of his paintings ranged from his 
wife to biblical scenes and flowers. 

Nick Colasanto, 61, was known to tv viewers everywhere as Coach, 
the lovable but befuddled bartender on the hit comedy series 

Ruth Gordon, 88, became one of America's darlings as she danced, 
wrote, and acted her way into the hearts of thousands of moviegoers. 
She won an Oscar for her 1968 performance in "Rosemary's Baby." 
Rock Hudson, 59, was America's No. 1 box office hearthrob, and the 
announcement that he had AIDS shocked the nation. The sexy, 
rugged leading man made 65 films, many of them romantic comedies 
with Doris Day. His death greatly increased public attention and 
funding for AIDS prevention. 

Ricky Nelson, 45, was headed for a New Year's Eve singing engage- 
ment when his private plane crashed in Texas. The former teen star of 
"The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" television series became one 
of the big names in country-rock and had more than 40 hits on the 
music charts. 

John Ringling North, 80, spent 26 years of his life helping to make 
the Ringling Bros, and Barnum & Bailey Circus the greatest show on 

Lincoln Perry, 83, was better known to most as Stepin Fetchit, the 
first black film star ever. 

Karen Ann Quinlan, 31, received national attention when her par- 
ents fought for permission to remove her from the respirator keep- 
ing her alive. Her irreversible coma was the focus of the right-to-die 

Samaniha Smith, 13, was invited by Yuri Andropov to visit the 
U.S.S.R. after she sent him a letter asking for peace. Her tragic death 
in a plane crash saddened more than one nation. 
Orson Wells, 70, began his rise to fame in 1941 with "Citizen Kane," 
and will forever be remembered as the man who threw America Into 
a panic with the radio drama "War of the Worlds." 
E.B. While, 86, made many children happy with "Stuart Little" and 
"Charlotte's Web," two classics that he authored. For 50 years his 
writing could also be found in "The New Yorker."

quarter of a million hits of informa- 
tion on a tiny chip. With average ac- 
cess time of 105 billionths of a second. 

At Western Electric, you'll work 

with the people who developed 
sophisticated new techniques for 
producing the 256K. Techniques 
such as plasma etching and metal 
silicide compound interconnections. 

Technological breakthroughs 
such as the 256K will be used in a 
wide range of Western Electric 
products to speed the introduction 
of Information Age services into 
homes and offices. You could help 
discover tomorrow's applications 
for today's 256K. And help produce 
the next generation of microchips 
that will make it obsolete. 

More than any other single 
company, Western Electric, in part- 

nership with Bell Labs, has stood 
at the forefront of the technologies 
that will make the Information Age 
a reality. Microelectronics.

Once again I will tell you it is difficult to 
capture an entire year, trying to reminisce 
about four or more years of your college 
career in just a few pages, (20 more than last 
year!) And again it is only a certain few out 
of the thousands that attend the University, 
working together to capture your memories. 

Because the Terrapin Yearbook is part of a 
corporation known as Maryland Media In- 
corporated and is an independant student 
publication it is up to the individual, organi- 
zation or activity sponsor as to whether they 
appear in the yearbook. Each person has 
his/her own memories of the University that 
no one else can touch: the first time you met 
your roommate, your first all-niter, the many 
parking tickets, the happy hours, the hang- 
overs, the football games, paper after paper, 
electing King Tom SGA president and staying 
up all night to hear about it, and of course 
your last class ever at the University of 

What will be remembered ten or twenty 
years from now is impossible for our staff to 
predict, so we tried once more to capture the 
essence of your final year at the University of 

We hope The 1986 Terrapin helps you to 


University Of Maryland At College Park
