DR. HARRY CLIFTON BYRD 



\VV^^ 




DeCAUSE he has done more than any other individual to bring the 
University to the high position it now occupies; because of the zeal 
and enthusiasm with which he has entered into his work; because of 
the esteem in which he is held by those who know and work with 
him; and because this year marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of his 
return to his Alma Mater, the 1938 Terrapin, to Dr. Harry Clifton Bryd, 
President of the University of Maryland, is respectfully dedicated. 




Sunday afternoon at honn.e 




Bureau o£ Mines Dedication 








• From September until June and from morn- 
ing until night, the University of Maryland 
campus has been a stage of never-ceasing ac- 
tivity. Life for every Maryland student has 
been a life full of events, some memorable, 
some commonplace, but all contributing to 
the important process of becoming educated. 
Throughout this volume of the Terrapin, the 
typical and more important events of the year 
have been recorded, but because they are 
seen from the viewpoint of their educational 
value, 1938 Terrapin is more than an account 
of collegiate activity — it is the record of a 
year of liberal education.

Treasurer; Mrs. John 
L. Whitehurst, Secre- 
tary; W. W. Skinner, 
Chairman; Clinton L.

nut. 



J. H E University of Maryland, composed of 
its administrators, faculty, equipment, and 
traditions, is the unity which has provided 
the educational environment for 1937-38. 
Reflecting the student body's pride in the 
growth of the University during the year, the 
editors have gathered together pictures and 
facts about the University, of the men and 
women who guide it, about the existing order 
and innovations made during the year with 
a hope that the unusual progress made will 
be appreciated not only now but also in the 
future. 

BOARD OF REGENTS 

The government of the University of Mary- 
land is vested in a Board of Regents consist- 
ing of nine members appointed by the Gov- 
ernor with the consent of the Senate, for a 
term of nine years, one membership termi- 
nating each year. The Board selects the 
President who acts as Executive Officer of 
the University and of the State Board of 
Agriculture. The Board of Regents is com- 
posed of the following members: 

Chairman, W. W. Skinner, Kensington. 
Dr. Skinner has been a member of the Board 
since it was formed in 1916. He is Assistant 
Chief of the Bureau of Chemistry and Soils of

Frank K. Haszard, 
Secretary to the President 



a member of the Exec- 
utive Committee of the 
American Farm Bu- 
reau Federation. In 
1935 the University of 
Maryland awarded 
him a Certificate of 
merit in Agriculture 
for his outstanding 
work in this field.

Clinton L. Riggs, Baltimore. Mr. Riggs, 
President of the Riggs Building Company of 
Baltimore, was Secretary of Commerce and 
Police, and Commissioner of the Philippine 
Islands from 1913 to 1915. During the Span- 
ish-American War he served as Adjutant 
General with the rank of Major General. 

PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY 

Without detracting in one degree from the 
work of others who have aided in its develop- 
ment, it can be safely said that the man who 
is most responsible for the spectacular growth 
of the University of Maryland is Dr. Harry 
Clifton Byrd. A graduate of the old Maryland 
Agricultural College, Dr. Byrd returned to his 
Alma Mater twenty-five years ago and has 
since served the University with energetic 
perseverance. 

From the days when Dr. Byrd was an un- 
dergraduate at Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege comes the story of his first experience 
on the college football field. After looking at 
his lean frame, the coach told him to turn in 
his uniform and give up a hopeless task. The 
inimicable "Curley" gave up his uniform, 
but he did not give up the task. The next day 
he appeared in togs of his own, including a 
home-made jersey, second-hand pants and 
women's stockings. Before three games had 
passed, "Curley" was a regular end and by 
the middle of the next season had found his 
true position as guarterback. 

That same determination and ability has 
since made history for the University of 
Maryland. In 1913 "Curley" came back to 
the campus to coach football, and by 1918 
his energy and talent for organization had 
become so apparent that he was made Assis- 



tant to the President. He was made Vice- 
President in 1932 and four years later was 
named President of the University. 

Dr. Byrd has one job and one hobby — the 
University of Maryland. The astounding 
rise of the College Park branch of the Uni- 
versity from 117 students in 1917 to the pres- 
ent enrollment of 2,500 testifies to the zeal 
with which he has tackled his job. 

His more recent activities have brought to 
the College Park, Baltimore, and Princess 
Anne branches of the University a $2,260,- 
000 building expansion program, and a gift 
of a million dollar model farm for the College 
of Agriculture. 

This year saw faculty improvements in all 
colleges at College Park, especially Arts and 
Sciences. The College of Agriculture was 
reorganized, bringing extension, research, 
control work and teaching into a more com- 
pact unit. The College of Engineering was 
accredited by the Engineers' Council for Pro- 
fessional Development. 

Dr. Byrd has also been instrumental in 
bringing to College Park the federal head- 
quarters of the Bureau of Fisheries and the 
Bureau of Mines, and this year he instituted 
a program with the Bureau of Fisheries, State 
Conservation Commission, and the Univer- 
sity for rehabilitation of the water resources 
of the Chesapeake Bay. 

Notwithstanding the fact that he averages 
fifteen hours a day at his work. Dr. Byrd finds 
time to give four or five speeches a week in 
different parts of the State in behalf of the 
University. 

BUSINESS MANAGEMENT 

In the left wing of the Administration Build- 
ing, adjacent to the cashier's window, is the 
Division of Business Management. During

crease working efficiency, the Department 
itself was in the midst of reorganization. 

In brief, the task was begun of making the 
Department of Business Management the 
focal point of all University financial activity. 
This department now manages not only the 
financial matters of the College Park and 
Princess Anne branches of the University, 
but also those of the Baltimore schools, the 
University Hospital in Baltimore, the State 
Department of Forestry, the Live Stock Sani- 
tary Service, the Maryland Geological Sur- 
vey and the State Weather Service. 

REGISTRATION 

During the academic year 1937-38 more 
students attended the University than ever 
before in its history. A total of 2,331 under- 
graduates and 362 graduate students were 
registered at College Park, and 1,201 in the 
Baltimore Schools. In addition, nearly 1,000 
students enrolled in the Summer School of 
1937 and more than 3,000 enrolled for vari- 
ous other schools and short courses spon- 
sored by departments of the University. A 
grand total of 7,949 individuals registered 
at the University during the year. 

The growth of the University of Maryland 
during the last twenty years has been little 
short of phenomenal. In 1917 there were 206 
students attending the College Park division 
of the University, whereas for the academic 
year 1937-38, registration reached the peak 
of 1,809 men and 884 women. Twenty years 
ago the Freshman Class had 54 students. 
This year there was a total of 961 first year 
students. 

Although most of the students registered 
at the University come from Maryland, thirty- 
eight states, six foreign countries, and four 
territories were represented on the Maryland 




campus this year. Every county in the state 
was also represented. 

Equally impressive are the figures on grad- 
uation. This June a total of 743 men and wo- 
men were awarded their sheepskins in 
Ritchie Coliseum. Of this number, 407 re- 
ceived diplomas for work done at the College 
Park schools and 336 graduated from the 
professional schools in Baltimore. 

The teaching staff for the entire University 
numbers 552, with 316 instructors located at 
College Park and 236 in Baltimore.

The University of 
Maryland library of to- 
day is a far cry from 
that of the early days of 
the school's existence. 

A search for the ear- 
liest records of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland 
Library yields results 
from the Catalog of 
1872-73, which men- 
tions a reading room for 
general and agricultu- 
ral periodicals and newspapers of the state. 
By 1886 the library contained several hundred 
books, the Literary Society probably fifteen 
hundred, and the private libraries of the pro- 
fessors as many more, all accessible to stu- 
dents "under proper conditions." It is inter- 
esting to note that as recently as 1905 the 
librarian, who served also as executive clerk, 
was in attendance at the library only two 
hours a day. 

Today the University Library at College 
Park contains more than 70,000 volumes, is 
open eighty-two hours a week and has a staff 
of ten persons.

Chief Engineer 



During this year the University received 
more than 600 periodicals from all parts of 
the world, and an average of 1,000 volumes 
were added each month to its shelves. 

CAMPUS AND BUILDINGS 

The number of new buildings on the cam- 
pus testifies to the University's rapid growth 
during recent years. With intelligent fore- 
sight in location of buildings, and improve- 
ment of grounds, the twenty-eight structures, 
placed as they are, make a campus that not 
only has beauty but also individuality. 

How the campus will appear in a few more 
years is a matter of speculation, but as a sub- 
stantial amount of money has been appro- 
priated for a building program it will natur- 
ally be more beautiful and the facilities of the 
University will be increased. 



One of the new structures scheduled on 
the building program is a men's dormitory 
which will be erected soon in the area be- 
tween Sylvester Hall and the Gym-Armory. 
An addition to the Engineering Building is 
planned which, when completed, will cause 
the present structure to face on three sides, 
fronting towards the Arts and Sciences Build- 
ing. There is a possibility that the College of 
Arts and Sciences may be housed in the com- 
pleted Engineering Building. Tentatively 
new guarters are expected for the Home 
Economics Building. The University will also 
be presented with an addition to the Infir- 
mary, and possibly a new building altogether. 
In order that it may be more centralized 
and not dependent upon the basement of the 
Agriculture Building and other places on 
the campus for its headguarters. General 
Service will have a new building. Further- 
more, the much discussed Rossbourg Inn, now 
awaiting its turn for campus improvement, 

will be restored 
and remodeled 
very shortly.

RETIRED FACULTY 

Seven widely known faculty members of 
the University were retired from active serv- 
ice last fall. In recognition of their long years 
of association with the University, their col- 
leagues honored them with a retirement din- 
ner, which was held on January 6th in the 
campus Dining Hall. The dinner was pre- 
sided over by Dr. Byrd, who had been a stu- 
dent under a number of the retiring members, 
and the life and service of each member was 
lauded by their friends and faculty asso- 
ciates. 




Patterson 
Pierson 



Taliaferro 
Spann 



McDonnell 
Gwinner 



In point of service, the oldest faculty mem- 
ber honored during the evening was Dr. 
Harry J. Patterson, who retired as Dean of 
the College of Agriculture and Director of 
the Experiment Station. Dr. Patterson came 
to College Park as chemist in the Experiment 
Station in 1888 and during the intervening 
years rose rapidly to a position of prominence 
in Maryland agriculture. 

The next man in point of service was Dr. 
Henry B. McDonnell, who first came to Col- 
lege Park as Professor of Agricultural Chem- 
istry and State Chemist in 1891. One year 
later he was made head of the Department of 
Chemistry and in 1923 was appointed Pro- 
fessor of Research. 

Dr. W. T. L. Taliaferro, who came to Col- 
lege Park in 1892, was next to be lauded. 
He was Acting Dean of the Division of Agri- 
culture from 1915 to 1917 and served for 
many years as Professor of Farm Manage- 
ment. One of the most scholarly men on the 
campus. Dr. Taliaferro is a member of Phi 
Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, and Beta Theta 
Pi. 



Dean A. N. Johnson, of the College of En- 
gineering, was retired after active service 
from 1920 to 1936. Dean Johnson became 
head of the College of Engineering follow- 
ing an outstanding career as a highway en- 
gineer. He enjoys a national reputation in 
engineering circles and in 1933 was awarded 
the Bartlett award for the outstanding con- 
tribution to highway progress. 

Professor Harry Gwinner also enjoyed a 
long record at College Park, having come to 
the old Maryland Agricultural College in 
1895. He was made associate professor in 
1898 and full professor two years later. From 
1929 on Professor Gwinner confined all of 
his time to instruction in engineering mathe- 
matics. 

Professor C. J. Pierson, another retiring 
faculty member, became associated with the 
department of Entomology and Zoology in 
1916. During his years of work in the depart- 
ment he made many contributions to insect 
morphology and impressed all with his devo- 
tion to his profession. 

Professor James T. Spann, of the College of 
Engineering, came to College Park in 1917. 
As Professor of Mathematics he made many 
friends among students and faculty and will 
long be remembered by those who were asso- 
ciated with him. 

DEAN OF THE FACULTY 

Dr. Thomas H. Taliaferro, who has been 
with the University of Maryland since 1907, 
was appointed last fall as Dean of the Faculty,

The Arts and Sciences' cupola points nr\ajestically to the sky 

a newly created position, established for the 
purpose of bringing faculty and administra- 
tion closer together. 

Dr. Taliaferro was selected for the position 
because of his wide experience in adminis- 
trative and faculty affairs, and because of 
the many responsible positions he has held in 
the University. 

For many years Dr. Taliaferro was active in 
the affairs of the College of Engineering, hav- 
ing been appointed Professor of Civil Engi- 
neering in 1907. From 1916 to 1920 he was 
Dean of the College. In 1927 he was made

The year 1937-38 has been one of change 
for the College of Arts and Sciences, both 
in faculty and administration. Dr. L. B. 
Broughton, head of the Chemistry Depart- 
ment, now occupies the suite at the end of 
the hall marked, "Office of the Dean," while 
new department heads, along with additional 
professors and instructors, have been added 
to the college personnel. 

Faculty members, both old and new, have 
had a busy and successful year. From their 
pens have come some of the best text ma- 
terial and literature in the country. Books 
and articles of all varieties and descriptions 
have been published. In the realm of pure 
science the outstanding contribution was Dr. 
Dantzig's "Aspects of Science," which drew 



warm praise from critics including the emi- 
nent Dr. Einstein. 

The English department took high honors 
in the Arts, as to general excellence of work 
produced. "The American Mind," by Dr. 
Warfel, done in collaboration with two facul-

ty members of Yale University, was univer- 
sally acclaimed the outstanding textbook of 
the year. Poetry of Dr. House was published 
and favorably reviewed in a recent anthology 
entitled "The Poets of Maryland." 

In the field of history, Dr. Strakhovsky pro- 
duced a masterful book on the "Origins of 
American Intervention in North Russia" ; while 
Dr. Crothers published the "History of the 
Acadians in South Carolina. ' ' Economics had 
a busy year with the contribution of Dr. 
Gruchy's book on "Supervision and Control 
of Virginia State Banks," sharing first honors 
with numerous articles written by Dr. Stevens 
for leading periodicals in the United States, 
China, and India. Dr. Stevens, new head of 
the Economics Department, brings to Mary- 
land a world-wide reputation gained in 
America and the Orient. In China he served 
as technical advisor to the Central Govern- 
ment in Nanking. 

The Department of Political Sciences was 
active with works by Dr. Howard, Dr. Stein- 
meyer, and Dr. Bone attracting considerable 
attention. Dr. Broughton's Chemistry Staff 
was well represented in the world of science. 
Fifteen scientific papers and a United States 
patent bear witness to its industry in research. 
Dr. Drake, Dr. Duvall, and Dr. Welsh figured

The Department of Speech gained head- 
lines throughout the nation by inaugurating 
the first radio school of its kind in the country 
in conjunction with the Columbia Broadcast- 
ing System. Through its facilities students 
are trained for careers in the field of radio. 
Other departments, notably Modern Lan- 
guage and Psychology, have been active. 
Dr. Falls and Dr. Prahl, of the modern lan- 
guage division, have contributed to various 
programs and reviews. The Department of 
Classical Language has been revived under 
Dr. Highby. Psychology has had a thorough 
renovation in its curriculum and faculty per- 
sonnel as this department is now given over 
to the study of the applied phases of psy- 
chology. The new chairman is Dr. A. G. 
Jenkins, formerly of Cornell University and 
author of "Psychology in Business and In- 
dustry." Both Dr. Jenkins and his co-workers 
of the psychology staff have presented papers 
during the past year at psychology meetings 
or conferences and have published articles 
in contemporary scientific journals. 



It is interesting to note the volume and, 
what is more important, the quaUty of the 
work turned out by the faculty members of 
the Arts and Sciences College. Rarely have 
Maryland men so distinguished themselves 
and the University.

On the campus there may 

be some doubt about which 
course is most difficult, but 
ask the boys who are often 
seen gazing from the Engi- 
neering Building windows 
between classes and their 
only doubt will be as to whether it is civil, 
electrical, or mechanical engineering. 

The engineering curriculum is designed to 
give vigorous technical training. All engi- 
neers in good standing must carry at least 18 
credit hours and it is not uncommon for some 
to carry as many as 21. School work outside 
of class sometimes requires study into the 
small hours of the morning, but when the 
engineering student graduates from the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, he is qualified to prac- 
tice his profession in every state of the nation.

RELAXATION IN FRONT OF THE ENGINEERING BUILDING 



in recent years to a point of prominence 
among engineering schools. Directed by 
Dean S. S. Steinberg, there have been added 
to the College during the past two years 
twenty instructors, all of whom have ad- 
vanced degrees together with wide practi- 
cal experience. With this added personnel, 
it has been possible to strengthen the courses 
in the three branches of engineering already 
established and add to the College the newly- 
formed department of Chemical Engineering. 
Last fall the curricula in civil, electrical, and 
mechanical engineering were accredited by 
the Engineers' Council for Professional De- 
velopment. This ranks the College of Engi- 
neering among the very best in the country. 

Educational efforts of the College have also 
extended beyond the Maryland campus, as 
the Engineering auditorium this year was the 
scene of four short courses for adult engi- 
neers. In addition, much has been done in 
order to develop the Engineering Experiment 
Station in cooperation with the industries of 
the state and nation. 

Supplementing improvements of a strictly 
academic nature, the College has given en- 
couragement to extra-curricular engineering 
activities. The Engineering Student Council 
has greatly enhanced faculty-student rela- 
tionships, one of its accomplishments being 



the scheduling of tests so that no student will 
be given more than one a day. 

There have been recently introduced into 
the College three student chapters of na- 
tional engineering societies, the American 
Society of Civil Engineers, the American In- 
stitute of Electrical Engineers, and the Ameri- 
can Society of Mechanical Engineers. The 
University Radio League for short wave com- 
munication with other institutions was organ- 
ized by Maryland's College of Engineering. 

With these facilities for training, the grad- 
uate of the College of Engineering leaves 
Maryland with a mind trained to deal with 
engineermg matters in a manner that will 
make him an asset to society, and a man in 
a man's occupation.

Kathleen M. Smith, Ed.M. 

The College of Education was organized at 
the University of Maryland in 1917, its pur- 
pose being principally to train high school 
teachers, supervisors, and school administra- 
tors. During twenty years of existence, its in- 
fluence has been felt far beyond the Mary- 
land campus, as many students now attending 
the University were once taught in high 
schools by College of Education graduates. 
This year more than seventy students gradu- 
ate from the College, prepared to give others 
instruction in commercial, home economics, 
industrial, physical, general, and arts and 
sciences education. 

Although one of the youngest colleges on 
the campus, the College of Education has 
been a pioneer in raising scholastic stand- 
ards. For example, the College reguired a 
"C" average for admission into the Junior 
Class three years before this ruling was made 
general for the entire University. Further- 
more, no one is eligible to teach who does 
not rank in the upper four-fifths of the gradu- 
ating class. 




Dean Willard S. Small 



An outstanding feature introduced by the 
College of Education this year was a course 
in curriculum construction. This new course 
makes the University of Maryland a center for 
teachers desiring help in curriculum prob- 
lems. Among the improvements of the im- 
mediate future will be extension of graduate 
work leading to the doctor's degree, and; in 
the undergraduate field, improvement of op- 
portunities for training teachers in industrial 
and commercial education, music and art. 
Plans are also underway for improving and 
expanding instruction in physical education 
so that it will include preparation for com- 
munity recreation workers. 

Dean Willard S. Small, head of the College 
of Education, is also director of the Summer 
School of the University, which provides op- 
portunity for teachers, Maryland students, 
and others to take work of collegiate grade 
during summer months.

The College of Agriculture is the oldest 
college on the Maryland campus, as it is an 
outgrowth of the old Maryland Agricultural 
College which was established here in 1856. 
Projected as the second school of agriculture 
in the country, it has grown steadily through- 
out the years and maintains its rank as a 
leader in the field. 

This year saw considerable change in the 
faculty set-up of the College of Agriculture.

Dr. Thomas B. Symons, Director of the Exten-

College and Dr. H. F. Cotterman, former Pro- 
fessor of Agricultural Education, was ap- 
pointed Assistant Dean. Professor J. E. Metz-

ger was made Director of the Experiment 
Station. 

In many respects the work of the College 
of Agriculture differs from that of other col- 
leges of the University. The scope of its ac- 
tivities embraces a fourfold program, which 
includes resident instruction, research, ex- 
tension and regulatory functions. 



Resident instruction is concerned with 
classroom activities at College Park. The 
fundamentals of good agriculture are pre- 
sented by instructors who are constantly sup- 
plementing their knowledge through research 
and study. In this way the student is certain 
to secure the benefits of up-to-date investi- 
gation along with the established principles 
of agricultural theory. The courses for resi- 
dent instruction are designed to provide 
trained personnel for agriculture and allied 
industries. This phase of the work comes 
very largely under the supervision of Dr. 
Cotterman. 

Extra-curricular activities play a large part 
in the life of the agricultural student. The 
new Agricultural Student Council, a delegate 
body representing various student organiza- 
tions, assists in bringing about a closer co 
ordination between faculty and student body. 
Organizations which come under the super- 
vision of the Council are Alpha Zeta, Student 
Grange, Livestock Club, Future Farmers of 
America, Bacteriology Club, and the Agri- 
cultural Economics Society. 

Judging teams representing the University 
this year in livestock, dairy cattle, dairy prod- 
ucts and poultry were unusually successful 
in intercollegiate competition. This was espe- 
cially true of the Dairy Cattle Judging Team, 
which won the Collegiate Judging Contest in 
the Eastern States Exposition at Springfield, 
Massachusetts, and led the country in judg- 
ing Guernsey cattle at the National Dairy 
Show in Cleveland. Work on the various 
judging teams is considered of great value in

supplementing classroom work and all stu- 
dents are urged to participate in this form of 
activity. 

As Director of the Extension Service, Act- 
ing Dean Symons is in immediate charge of 
a department which has representatives in 
all parts of the state. With a county agent 
and a home demonstration agent in each of 
the twenty-three counties and specialists at 
College Park, results of scientific research 
carried on at the University of Maryland and 
elsewhere are made available to rural people 
on their farms and in their homes. In like 
manner, problems confronting the farmers of 
the state are brought to the University for 
consideration and study. 

The research phases of the College are 
organized in the Experiment Station under 
Professor Metzger. Personnel of this organi- 
zation is made up almost entirely of persons 
who divide their time between teaching and 
research. In this way many young men hold- 
inggraduate assistantships and rank of instruc- 
tor are able to continue their studies and be- 
come experienced in methods of investigation. 
The Experiment Station conducts investiga- 
tions along lines of practical value and through 
its efforts the frontiers of agricultural knowl- 
edge are being constantly extended.

plagues, combating blights, preventing plant 
diseases, testing fertilizers, feeds and limes

are handled by the regulatory division of the 
College. 

The influence of this College is being felt 
throughout every section of the state as well 
as on the campus. Results of research at the 
Experiment Station are helping to open up 
new lines of endeavor for the agriculturist, 
the Extension Service is carrying this infor- 
mation to the people of the state, and by turn- 
ing out competent and scientifically trained 
men, there is developed a richer and more 
intelligent rural Maryland. 



COLLEGE OF HOME ECONOMICS 

Dean— M. Marie Mount, M.A. 

Professors — Freida W. McFarland, M.A.; 
Claribel Welsh, M.A. 

Assistant Professors — Vienna Curtiss, 
M.A.; Polly Bell Kessinger, M.A.; Mary E. 
Kirkpatrick, M.S. 

Instructors — Mary E. Barnes, M.A.; Fran- 
ces Bryant, B.S. 

The College of Flome Economics is the 
newest college in the University, having been 
organized in 1918 with one division and an 
enrollment of five students. Progressing 
through the years under Dean M. Marie 
Mount, the College now has three divisions 
and an enrollment of more than two hundred 
students. The objective of the College is to 
provide training for those interested in be- 
coming teachers, dietitians, restaurant and 
cafe managers, demonstrators, homemakers, 
textile specialists, designers, and buyers of 
clothing in department stores. 

Several new instructors were added to the 
staff this year, making possible the introduc- 
tion of courses which have broadened and 
strengthened the curricula. One innovation 
was a new curriculum of practical arts which 
is designed for students interested in crea- 
tive, selective and promotional positions in 
the fields of clothing and art. A phase of the 
work provides opportunity for professional 
experience in retail stores. Other new 
courses are advanced food preparation and 
interior decoration, crafts, merchandise dis- 
play, and textile microscopy. 

Last November, Alpha Zeta Chapter of 
Omicron Nu, national Home Economics So- 
ciety, was installed through the effort of this 
College. Two faculty members, six seniors,

and eleven alumnae were initiated in the 
chapter at that time. 

During the year the College presented its 
Annual Mother's Day program. Mothers of 
the students were guests of the College and 
educational exhibits, style shows, and demon- 
strations were presented by the students. 

Plans are now underway for the new Home 
Economics building, which will provide ad- 
ditional space for classes in foods prepara- 
tion, nutrition and dietetic investigation, nurs- 
ery school, art laboratories, textile testing 
laboratories and classrooms. 

With these added facilities, the College 
looks forward to further and better service to 
the students of the state.

With an enrollment of almost 600 students, 
the Graduate School this year has had the 
largest registration in its history. Of this 
number, 226 students were registered in 
Summer School and 362 carried courses 
during the regular session at College Park. 




« 29 » 



It was expected that 17 candidates would 
complete requirements for the Doctor of 
Philosophy degree, and from 70 to 75, re- 
quirements for Master's degree. Dr. H. O. 
Appleman is Dean of the School. 

A recent survey reveals that the majority 
of students who have received Doctor of 
Philosophy degrees from the University of 
Maryland hold teaching and research posi- 
tions in colleges, universities, industrial re- 
search laboratories and state experiment sta- 
tions. The majority of those who receive 




Masters' degrees, if they do not continue 
work for the Ph.D. degree, find employment 
in the public school system, but a large num- 
ber are employed in other occupations re- 
quiring special training beyond that received 
in undergraduate work. 

The addition of several outstanding schol- 
ars to the graduate faculty has enabled some

departments to expand their graduate work, 
and a few departments are offering this year 
or next, for the first time, a major graduate 
program leading to advanced degrees. Next 
year the University will offer a number of 
graduate fellowships in cooperation with the 
United States Bureau of Mines and the 
Bureau of Fisheries.

RESERVE OFFICERS' TRAINING 
CORPS 

The University of Maryland unit of the Re- 
serve Officers' Training Corps last year at- 
tained the highest rating in military efficiency 
that is awarded by the War Department, a 
record that it has maintained for years. This 
means that the unit is fulfilling in every 
respect its duty as a part of the National De- 
fense System in which land grant colleges 
provide trained officers for mobilization in 
time of need. 

The organization boasts an outstanding 
chapter of Pershing Rifles, a military hon- 
orary fraternity for men in ranks; and an 
active chapter of the commissioned officers' 
honorary fraternity, Scabbard and Blade. A 
number of well-drilled companies, one more 
than last year, and an excellent band round 
out this division of the department's activi- 
ties. All are commanded by student officers. 
By this method they are taught the lessons of 
discipline and obedience necessary in han- 
dling groups of men. A capable staff of army 
officers instruct the students, and the results 
obtained are the measure of their success.

The War Department inspection and mili-

a heavy rain. For more than three hours, all 
events were executed under the most un- 
favorable conditions. However, with quiet 
determination and business-like efficiency, 
the men went on to win the War Department 
award. To the inspectors it was a visible and 
impressive demonstration of the very finest 
kind, a self-discipline produced by team 
spirit. This same team spirit still guides the 
R.O.T.C. 

ATHLETIC BOARD 

Five veteran members make up the Mary- 
land Athletic Board. They are Dr. L. B. 
Broughton, chairman; Professor Charles S. 
Richardson, Professor Geary Eppley, Dr. 
Ernest N. Cory, and Dr. William B. Kemp. 

The Board handles the financing of all ap- 
proved sports at Maryland and all contracts 
with other schools for games and meets. It 
arranges sports schedules, and guides the 
school policy concerning intramural sports 
and athletic relations with other institutions. 
The chairman represents the University at 
all official Southern Conference gatherings, 
at which time current problems facing the 
conference are discussed. Largely through 
the efforts of the Athlehc Board, the Southern 
Conference Boxing Tournament was held on 
this campus the last two years.

dition to the regular inspection of 
dormitories, fraternity and sorority 
houses. Lectures on health and 
hygiene were arranged for the 
student body, and the Committee 
is striving to provide a course on 
the same subject. Also the sched- 
ule of classes was rearranged so 
as to eliminate as many ninth hour 
courses as possible and thus 
lengthen the afternoon recreation 
period. 

While the Committee is not ad- 
ministrative, one of its primary 
functions is the recognition of all

pose is to aid in developing a well- 
rounded and harmonious student 
life on the campus. Whenever a 
problem arises, the respective 
members of the Committee, who 
are assigned jurisdiction over that 
particular phase of student life, 
meet informally and talk the matter 
over. Usually a solution is found 
without further deliberation. Stu- 
dents may consult the Student Life 
Committee on any matter in which 
it can give assistance.

Realizing that a well-balanced individual 
must develop spiritually as well as intellec-

support to religious activities on the campus. 
As a result the Committee on Religious Af- 
fairs and Social Service has been created for 
the purpose of encouraging the formation 
and work of student denominational groups 
and to establish contacts with the pastors of 
neighboring towns.

brings the work of these groups to the cam- 
pus through rehgious services. During the 
year, four denominational meetings were 



held at which prominent ministers and lay- 
men spoke. 



PUBLICATIONS ADVISORY BOARD 

As publications sometimes need aid and 
sometimes restraining force, the Publications 
Advisory Board was created to help students 
in staff, editorial, and business problems, and 
freguently to harness impulses by censor- 
ship. 

Dr. Susan B. Harman, of the English De- 
partment; Mr. Ralph Williams, Assistant Dean 
of Men and Chairman of the Board, and Mr. 
O. Raymond Carrington, artist and editor of 
the Extension Service, make up the person- 
nel of the Board. Although no member is 
confined to any particular publication. Dr. 
Harman and Mr. Williams give their efforts 
to the "'Diamondback," "Old Line," and "M 
Book." Mr. Carrington works closely and 
effectively with the editors of "The Terrapin." 
By their efforts, the members of the Publica- 
tions Board are not only maintaining but are 
improving the standards of Maryland publi- 
cations.

entered the Gym-Armory and after a full day 
of toil was enrolled as a member of the Class 
of '41. 

As his Sophomore brother had proved an 
arrogant and troublesome fellow, the young 
Freshman welcomed October 30th, for it was 
the day of his revenge — the Freshman-Soph- 
omore struggle. The Freshmen administered 
a thorough dousing to the Sophomores, who 
protested at great length; and thus won the 
right to discard their rat hats. 

Rushing came and went and the Greek let- 
ter lodges took a record number of neophytes 
from the ranks of the Freshman Class. 

An outstanding event of the Class of '41 
was the Freshman Prom, with Zel Smith and 
his popular Pennsylvanians as the music- 
makers. The Gym- Armory was gayly deco- 
rated with the class colors, maroon and gray, 
and was transformed into an attractive ball- 
room. 

The young Freshman had by this time lost 
all earlier fears. He had made many friends, 
was proud that a record number of Freshman 
girls had been admitted to Alpha Lambda 
Delta, that the Freshman athletic teams and 
other accomplishments of his classmates had 
been so successful.

J.HE Sophomore entered the 
University in September, 1936, 
one of 693 Freshmen. For a 
while he felt lost at the Univer- 
sity, but made acquaintances 
gradually and began to feel at 
home on "the hill." 

This past September, when 
last year's Freshman returned to 
Maryland, he came as a Soph- 
omore, determined, that he was 
to be looked upon no longer as 
a lowly ' 'rat' ' . He remembered 
how he had been made to take 
midnight promenades over the 
campus clad in his pajamas and 
to do other uncalled-for things, 
so he decided he might as well 
have some fun with the incom- 
ing class. Rat rules were so

effectively enforced that at the 
annual Soph-Frosh tug-o'-war 
half the Freshman Class on their 
side of the rope pulled the 
Sophomore, with his twenty- 
nine pals, through Paint Branch, 
ending the rat rules. 

The year culminated in the 
Sophomore Prom, which went 
above all expectations. The 
Class of 1940 secured an up- 
and-coming orchestra directed 
by Earl Mellen, who played for 
the Junior-Senior German, Ross- 
bourg, and Senior Ball in 1937. 

With such eventful years be- 
hind him, the Sophomore looks 
forward to a better year as a 
Junior in 1939.

J.HE Junior thought back over his past three 
years. He remembered that fall of 1935 when 
he had donned his "rat" hat and had been 
soundly soaked in Paint Branch with the rest 
of his classmates. There was the Freshman 
Prom, the first of a series of top-notch dances 
sponsored by the Class of '39. Dr. Byrd was 
appointed President of the University, the new 
Arts and Sciences Building stretched out that 
walk between classes, and the girls moved 
into the new dormitory. 

Then came his Sophomore year, and with 
it, the too vigorous "ratting" that led to the 
abolishment of the system. The Bureau of 
Mines Building raised its twelve chimneys to 
the north. The class carried on its tradition 
of excellent dances by having a " name' ' band 
for the Sophomore Prom. When the old water 
tower, center of countless Frosh-Soph strug- 
gles, went to its doom as scrap iron that spring, 
it bore to the end the numerals of the Class 
of '39. 

Everyone had said his Junior year should 
be his best. There had been the most looked- 
forward-to event in his college career — the 
Junior Prom, with Russ Morgan's band, and 
guest movie stars to pick the beauty queen. 
New departments had been added to the col- 
leges, new professors to the faculty, and new 
clubs to the list of extra-curricular activities. 
Another year of classes, dances, athletics, and 
club meetings was over. A year from now 
he'd be graduating.

THE SENIOR 



J. HE Senior entered the University of 
Maryland a short four years ago, shy in his 
strange surroundings and excited over the 
new experiences av\^aiting him, but deter- 
mined to make the most of his hfe on the 
campus. 

Like all his classmates, he quickly dis- 
carded his rat cap after helping to pull his 
immediate superiors through Paint Branch. 
This victory impressed the upper classmen 
v/ith the fact that here was a class really 
worth noticing. 

The '38 graduate, after a,ttending rush 
functions at various fraternities on the cam- 
pus, acquired a pledge pin. With his ability 
as an athlete, and his interest in some of the 



44 



many clubs on the hill, he started his climb 
as a campus leader. 

As a Sophomore, he returned to college 
to find Dr. Byrd had been appointed as the 
new President of the University. 

With that same tug-of-war ability shown in 
the Freshman year, the class put the Fresh- 
men in their places and dragged them 
through the water to win the annual struggle 
again. The Sophomore Prom showed that 
these lads and lassies were as efficient in 
promoting social functions as in other under- 
takings. 

When his Junior year rolled around, the 
graduate of '38 found he could now attend 
the Junior Prom in his own right, and a real 
prom it was, with Bob Crosby's orchestra fur- 
nishing the music. Juniors and Seniors trip- 
ping the light fantastic. 

By this time many of the members of the 
Class of '38 occupied the limelight on the 
campus — on publications, in dramatics, on 
varsity teams, and in student governing 
bodies and honorary fraternities. 

Almost before he knew it, the Senior found 
that his last year of college had rolled around. 
It was 1938. During the year prominent or- 
ganizations gave bigger and better dances, 
All-University Night increased in fame, the 
Footlight Club presented more plays, and 
the "Diamondback" was published semi- 
weekly. The faculty restored the rule reguir- 
ing Seniors to take exams just in time to make 
sure that the '38 graduate would have to 
take his. Graduation; and the Senior dons 
his cap and gown, wishing that he did not 
have to leave so soon. 



. . and the best o£ luck.'

SCHOLARSHIP HONORARIES 

OTUDENTS, by choice, may participate in varied types 
of activities during their college careers, but there is one 
thing they all must do in common — study. The men and 
women who shoulder the responsibility of leading the 
world in its work are those who carefully sharpen and 
enlarge their mental abilities. "The Terrapin" pays 
honor to those who, during their years at Maryland, 
have labored with outstanding success in this direction.

PHI KAPPA PHI 




Honorary Scholarship Fraternity 

Founded at the University of Maine in 1897 

Established at the University of Maryland in 1920 



i HI KAPPA PHI was first organized at the University 
of Maine in 1897 and now has a total roll of forty-nine 
chapters throughout the country. The Maryland charter 
was granted in 1920 and since that date has elected 
nearly five hundred persons to membership. 

Elections are held twice each year, one in the fall and 
the other in the spring. In the fall, election eligibility is 
limited to the high Senior in .each college, while in the 
spring election new members are selected from among 
those students ranking scholastically in the upper eighth 
of the graduating class. Members are selected from all 
the colleges in the University regardless of the line of 
study they are pursuing. 

The society has for its primary purpose the encourage- 
ment of scholarship and development of character. It 
supports the original purpose for which institutions of 
higher learning were established, and attempts to stimu- 
late mental achievement through the opportunity for 
membership and by offering a limited number of fellow- 
ships each year to the most promising new members. 

A secondary objective of the society is to bind alumni 
more closely to their alma mater, to furnish an additional 
bond to friendship formed in college, and to interest the 
members of the organization in the promotion of higher 
standards of education

1 AU BETA PI, honorary engineering fraternity, 
was organized at Lehigh University in 1885. It bears 
the same relationship to engineering as Phi Beta 
Kappa does to literary scholarship and Sigma Xi to 
original research in science. 

At present there are seventy chapters in as many 
different colleges and technical schools in Ameri- 
ca, with a membership of over thirty thousand. 

The object of the fraternity is to recognize those 
who have attained high scholarship as under- 
graduates or alumni, and to foster a spirit of lib- 
eral culture in the technical and scientific schools 
of America. 

Tau Beta Pi on this campus is the highest achieve- 
ment that an undergraduate engineer can attain. 
Membership in the association is a decided honor 
and one for which it is well worth striving. There 
is no finer thing for the young engineer than to be 
able to say that he can wear the "Bent of Tau 
Beta Pi."

.LPHA ZETA, national honorary agri- 
cultural fraternity, was founded in 1897 
at Ohio State University. The local chap- 
ter of the fraternity was established on the 
Maryland campus in 1920. Since its in- 
ception the Maryland chapter has initiated 
more than one hundred and fifty men, 
representing all branches of work carried 
on in the College of Agriculture. 

To be eligible for membership in Alpha 
Zeta, the agriculture student must rank in 
the upper two-fifths of his class and must 
show definite attributes of character and 
leadership. 

The local chapter awards a medal an- 
nually to that Freshman in the College of 
Agriculture who attains the highest scho- 
lastic average in his first year of work. 
The purpose of the award is to encourage 
high scholastic endeavor during the Fresh- 
man year, the time when good study habits 
should be formed. 

The local chapter of the fraternity held 
its annual initiation banguet in Washing- 
ton this spring, at which time new mem- 
bers were inducted in the presence of 
active and alumni members and executive 
officers of the national organization.

.LPHA CHI SIGMA, professional 
chemistry fraternity, was founded at 
the University of Wisconsin in 1902 
and now has more than fifty chap- 
ters in colleges and universities 
throughout the nation. This year 
marks the tenth anniversary of Al- 
pha Rho Chapter at Maryland, hav- 
ing been founded here in 1928. 

To be eligible for membership in 
Alpha Chi Sigma, one must be a 
major in chemistry, have superior 
grades, and complete at least one 
and one-half years of the chemistry 
curriculum. The objects of the fra- 
ternity are to work for the advance- 
ment of chemistry as a science and 
as a profession, to aid its members 
in the attainment of their ambitions 
as chemists, to help fulfill social 
needs of its members, and to bring 
about a closer relationship between 
students and faculty. 

There are twenty Alpha Chi Sig- 
ma members in the University of 
Maryland faculty, eight of whom are 
charter members. Alpha Rho has 
contributed many great men of 
science. Some of these are mem- 
bers of faculties in this and other 
universities, while others have con- 
tinued in private research or com- 
mercial enterprises.

ETA ALPHA PSI is the honorary fraternity for Business Administration students who take 
accountancy as a major. 

This fraternity, which has been at the University for only two years, sponsored during the 
year a series of weekly talks by leading personnel directors of the vicinity and arranged inter- 
views with them for members of the Senior Class. In addition, prominent figures of the busi- 
ness world were brought to the campus to address the students. Outstanding among these 
were Carman Blough, chief accountant of the Securities Exchange Commission, and William 
Slattery, Washington director of the National Association of Cost Accountants. 

A novel feature of the year's program was an arrangement with an accountancy firm 
whereby four members of the fraternity were employed during the firm's rush season for a 
few weeks.

worked for the installation of this fraternity, and realizing their 
own good fortune, the members have formulated a number of 
plans for the advancement of home economics. 

Beginning soon after installation members offered their serv- 
ices in tutoring guite a few home economics Freshmen who were 
having trouble with their studies. In March, feeling that an event 
to improve acguaintanceship among co-eds might be welcomed, 
they sponsored a co-ed costume party, which they have planned 
to make an annual affair, using the proceeds to establish a loan 
fund for home economics students. As an incentive to higher 
scholarship they awarded a cup in June to the home economics 
Freshman having the highest average for the year.

Treasurer Elizabeth Harrover 

Established at the University of Maryland in 1932, Alpha Lambda Delta, a national hon- 
orary scholastic sorority for freshman women, has served as an inspiration to intellectually 
minded Maryland girls. 

The organization was originally founded at the University of Illinois in 1924 as an answer 
to the need for a freshman women's honorary sorority. Since that date it has extended to the 
principal universities of the country.

ment is the basic requirement HJ^^^Bk^ J^K/^^x^

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

i HE Student Government Association of the University of Mary- 
land was established in its present form in 1934. The governing 
body is the Executive Council, which is composed of campus lead- 
ers who represent the thoughts of the student body. Problems per- 
taining to men and women students are handled by the Men's and 
Women's Leagues acting in conjunction with the Executive Council. 

The objective of the Student Government Association is the bet- 
terment of the University and this purpose is carried out by main- 
taining a close student-faculty relationship and by enacting laws 
which adhere to student and campus interests. 

The Executive Council has been especially proud this year of 
the fine relationship that has existed between the students and 
faculty. At the beginning of the school year, joint meetings were 
held between the Student Life Committee and the Executive Coun- 
cil, at which time problems of mutual interest were discussed. 
Elimination of cheating in examinations has been one of the prob- 
lems worked on during the year. 

In attempting to better student and campus interests, the Execu- 
tive Council has passed such legislation as it has deemed neces- 
sary under the existing conditions. The Council felt it advisable to 
limit the number of dances given on the campus and in so doing 
has increased the financial success and the importance of those 
dances permitted. 

With the advent of legalized slot machines, a new problem pre- 
sented itself. It was felt by the Council that these machines were 
neither good for the morale of the students nor did they help busi- 
ness in any of the establishments near the campus. Through the 
Executive Council's efforts and with the cooperation of local busi- 
ness men they were removed. 

During the course of the year, the Men's League was altered 
both in structure and purpose. Proctors in the men's dormitories 
were made permanent members of the League. This enabled them 
to more adequately carry out the powers of jurisdiction over the 
students of Calvert and Sylvester Halls. The Men's League was 
further altered by decreasing its membership, which the Council 
felt would make for greater efficiency. 

When student enrollment increased in September, the traffic 
problem increased with it. A committee was then appointed to 
revise the traffic rules of the campus. It was quite successful in hav- 
ing the new rules approved and accepted by the traffic authorities. 

For several years the campus has been in need of a definite place 
for announcements of campus meetings. The Council attempted to 
remedy the situation by purchasing a bulletin board for the use of 
all larger organizations on the hill. 

Every year the Executive Council conducts a relief campaign for 
the benefit of the needy in and about College Park. This year the

ASSOCIATION 



Council's charity work was extended beyond College Park and a 
considerable sum of money was collected from the students to aid 
the President's Birthday Fund. 

Financing student activities also comes under the supervision of 
the Student Government Association. Publications, classes, Debate 
Club, Opera Club, and Glee Club are all financed through the 
student activities fee and budgeted to the different groups by the 
Executive Council.

I 



N 1934 the Student Government Association was divided into three major divisions. One of 
these divisions, the Men's League, was made responsible for the care and welfare of men in 
the dormitories. 

The Men's League is a self-governing body with the presiding officer elected by the male 
members of the student body. Students are represented in the league by daydodger repre- 
sentatives, vice-presidents of classes and three members of the 
Interfraternity Council. The administration is represented by 
proctors who live in the men's dormitories. 

The league strives to better accommodations and conditions 
for the students on the campus and in the dormitories by sup- 
porting constructive schemes for their improvement. In the four 
years of its existence, the league has been the major instrument 
for the maintenance of order in the dormitories. It has the 
authority to place a student on '"campus" or probation, if such 
a penalty seems necessary. 




Surgent 



The Men's League occupies a position of importance in 
the student plan of self-government and at all times is in close 
contact with university officials and student body.

± HE Women's League, a division of the Student Government Association, is composed of one 
representative from each sorority, dormitory and off campus house. Each of the four classes 
also has a representative as do the day students. These members, totalling thirty this year, 
make and carry out the rules which govern women students of the University. The officers of 
the league are elected by the women students of the University, and any woman student is 
privileged to attend a league meeting if she so desires. 

Aside from the regular activities of making and enforcing rules, assisting the dormitory 
housemothers and conducting house meetings, the league, this year, sent two delegates to the 
convention of the Women's Intercollegiate Association for Student Government, adopted an 
official key for league members, assisted the Dean in an orientation tea for freshmen women, 
and adopted a new constitution to fit the present needs of the Women's League.

DIAMONDBACK 



JVLOVING into its twenty-eighth year as the official student newspaper of the University, 
"The Diamondback" during 1937-38 made one of its greatest progressive steps. A two-year 
campaign waged by the staff to give the campus superior news in a better collegiate publica- 
tion was climaxed early in October when the first edition of 'The Semi- Weekly Diamondback" 
appeared in student mail boxes. 

With its semi-weekly setup, "The Diamondback" became one of the few college papers 
of its type in the country, to be published twice weekly without direct faculty supervision or 
the support of a school of journalism. As a result of doubling the number of issues, a greater, 
more efficient staff was organized, and subseguently split into two separate groups, one editing 
the Tuesday edition and the other the Friday issue. This increase in staff membership created for 
the first time in "Diamondback" history an adeguate outlet for student expression and initiative. 

Because of increased space accruing from the pair of four-page issues in place of the 
past six-page weeklies, it became necessary for the staff to more expertly cover the campus. 
Rather than "pad" its stories to fill the increased space, the editorial board adopted a policy 
of giving much-needed publicity to the lesser known student organizations on the campus. By 
this policy was furnished the stimulus to revamp and revitalize several student groups which 
through the years had sunk into virtual stagnation. 

Along with the advance in news coverage, an increase in photography, engraving and 
features was made. Two staff cameramen were employed in addition to four feature columnists. 
As "The Semi-Weekly Diamondback" gained a firmer foothold on campus, it became unfor- 
tunately necessary to eliminate music and drama columns in order to allow space for news 
which had to be published. The so-called "dirt" column was done away with early in the first 
semester because it was considered to be ill-suited to a collegiate publication. 

Editorially, the policy of "The Diamondback" was relatively unchanged. Editorial col- 
umns were kept strictly within the circle of campus activity rather than treading the dangerous 
grounds of national political fields. Editorials were directed mainly toward improvement of 
conditions on campus which would directly benefit the university "family." 

Probably the most radical change made under the semi-weekly plan was the revamping 
of make-up and headlines. Headline type was completely re- 
novated in order to promote faster reading and expedite work 
on the copy desk. Page make-up followed conservative rules 
in place of the "scare head" policies of many collegiate con- 
temporaries. 

Greater coverage was given all campus sports, from co-ed 
activities to all varsity endeavors. Intramural news was par- 
ticularly emphasized, although varsity sports received more 
publicity than in past years. The sports staff was increased to 
eight men so that the essential style diversification was created 
and maintained. 

Although the year 1937-38 can be modestly termed one of 
great success, "The Semi-Weekly Diamondback" is still in its 
infant stage and conseguently must be pampered for several 
years in order that a top-ranking collegiate newspaper can be 
produced.

OLD LINE 

Under the direction of a co-ed editor for the first time in the history of the University, "The 
Old Line" this year met eight deadlines and stuffed student mail boxes with the "Back in the 
Swing," "Homecoming," "Christmas," "Junior Prom," "Military Bawl," "Travel," "Ex- 
change," and "June Week" issues. The magazine consists of original cartoons and editorial 
matter contributed by the students. 

The policy, inaugurated last year, of running in each issue a short story by some student 
was followed in every issue this year. These stories and a few other serious features keep "The 
Old Line" in the class of a semi-literary and semi-humorous publication. 

The editorial page, "The New Line," is written by the editors and is the only feature to 
appear constantly in the magazine since its inception eight years ago. 

This year an attempt was made to bring the publication closer to student life and pages 
of candid photographs of campus activity were featured. 

Serious drawings are seldom used except in decoration or in story illustration. "The Old 
Line" makes a feature of original cartoons on any style or subject. Poetry has been often used 
in the magazine as well as short-column features. The cover is drawn by staff members and 
is in color. 

Each year an exchange issue is published. This number consists solely of jokes and car- 
toons which have been borrowed from other college magazines throughout the country. 

One of the most sensational features of the 1937-38 "Old Line" was a daring expose of 
its contemporary, "The Diamondback." 

The column, "Around the Hill," discontinued last year, was started again this term. The 
column is of a personal nature, and has to do with students' 
"private lives." 

When first inaugurated on the campus in 1930, "The 
Old Line" came out only four times during the school year. 
Then, as advertising and interest in the magazine increased, 
the number of issues was changed to six. Three years ago 
it was again expanded until now eight numbers are pre- 
pared each year. Eieman Hardy

TERRAPIN 

Although "The Terrapin" appears but once a year, 
work to produce it hardly ceases from one book until the 
next. The 1938 "Terrapin" was begun last May, when, by 
taking advantage of the spring foliage, a number of campus 
views were photographed. A warm day in early June saw 
a long session with the printer and engraver in the faculty 
adviser's office, where preliminary plans for the book were 
decided upon. Many hours during the summer were spent 
in looking through yearbooks from all over the nation in an 
attempt to assimilate new ideas of design and content and 
many more hours were spent working out definite plans that 
would be practical for "The Terrapin." 

Beginning a week before fall registration, the editors, 
along with the faculty adviser, set out with several clear cut 
objectives. One of these was to print in the book a greater 
number of human interest pictures. The solution of this was 
the purchase of a good candid camera. 

A second objective was to cut down lost motion in ad- 
ministering work to staff members. This was accomplished 
by assigning certain sections of the book to associate editors. 
By such specialization these editors gained confidence in 
their abilities and were able to proceed with less hesitation 
than if they had worked on the entire book. In fact, the sys- 
tem worked so well that two other objectives were made pos- 
sible. More time was left to design each page of the book 
and for editing copy included in it. Profiting from ineffi- 
ciencies encountered during the year, new plans for im- 
proving next year's book have been formulated and ap- 
proved. 

Above all, the staff has worked throughout the year to 
give Maryland students the best in yearbooks. The editors 
hope that students feel the time and money used in pro- 
ducing the book have been well spent.

"M" BOOK 



I 



NCORPORATING the same general features as its predecessors and emulating 
their mechanical make-up, the 1937-38 "M" Book met the printer's deadline in 
time for publication in the fall. Under the ministrations of a none too large staff, 
the freshman bible developed through a long, lazy summer, chiefly through the 
efforts of Faculty Adviser and father confessor extraordinary Ralph. I. Williams, 
v/ho spent many an hour urging the staff on towards the publication of the book. 

With the usual advice to Freshmen; a complete and corrected S.G.A. Con- 
stitution; rosters of fraternities, organizations, sororities, and honoraries; athletic 
records and schedules; and other features common to no other publication 
on the campus, the "M" Book, this year, was filled with the countless statistics 
and facts of campus organizations. 

Students who labored on the book were Lawrence G. Hoover, editor; Helen 
L. Reindollar, women's editor; Peggy Maslin, associate women's editor; John 
Freudenberger, sports editor, and others too modest to make their names known 
to the staff. 

Despite the fact that it is one of the smaller of the campus publications, the 
"M" Book does serve a purpose in introducing the University to the Freshmen. 
It also serves as a reference book, as it contains information found in no other 
school publication.

CALVERT DEBATE CLUB

Secretary-Treasurer Faye Snyder 

Women's Manager Mildred Hearn 

Men's Manager Robert Bradley 



A 



KALEIDOSCOPIC view of the activities of the Calvert Debate Club reveals participation 
in numerous forensic events with schools throughout the East. 

Outstanding on the year's program was Maryland's participation in the Model Senate 
Association at Colgate University. The Calvert Debaters were represented by Allan Brown, 
Dan Prettyman, and Irving Phillips. From all indications the "senators" showed great promise 
of professional ability, being instrumental in the promulgation of several laws. 

Plans are rapidly being developed for the club to sponsor and manage a model legisla- 
ture on the campus, in which the high schools of the state will participate. 

The men's team, under the management of Bob Bradley, has had guite a busy season, 
having met such schools as Duke, Colgate, and American Universities and Washington 
College. 

The activities of the women's debate team cannot be overlooked, for which Millie Hearn 
has proved an efficient manager. The women's program culminated in representation in the 
Grand Eastern Forensic Tournament at Winthrop College, South Carolina. Last year in this 
same event the Calvert Debaters tied for first place. 

Several debates of the club have been given before neighboring high schools and over 
the radio station WCBM. 

Following the precedent set several years ago, the Calvert Debate Club awarded keys to 
the outstanding members, which were presented at its annual formal banguet. 

The success of this year's effort is due in a large measure to Mr. Warren Strausbaugh, 
newly appointed professor of speech, who, as adviser and director of the club, has given much 
inspiration and help.

FOOTLIGHT CLUB 



r OOTLIGHT CLUB activity during the past 
year has been of an experimental nature, 
with the local dramatic group revolutioniz- 
ing its previous play production policy. 

The major change made by the local his- 
trionic organization was the addition of a 
fourth play to its schedule. In previous years 
the Footlighters have operated on a three- 
vehicle basis, presenting their season opener 
in the late fall, and their remaining shows in 
the second semester. 

In the recently completed season the club 
offered three plays and one pay production 
to the campus theater-goers. Thus, although 
an increase in the play schedule was made, 
no additional expense was imposed on stu- 
dents. 

Selection of plays during the past year was 
made with an aim to provide the campus with 
a balanced dramatic bill of fare. The season 
opened with a light farcical comedy, "Petti- 
coat Fever." The show served to bring out 
several new stars and played to packed 
houses for four nights. "Petticoat Fever" 
also marked the end of ten years of Footlight

TWO MOMENTS IN "PETTICOAT FEVER' 



BEHIND THE SCENES 






:^ mr - 








Club direction by Dr. Charles B. Hale. Dr. 
Hale was forced to resign as active head of 
the play group because of increased aca- 
demic duties. 

Among Dr. Hale's outstanding hits during 
his more than a decade of directing, were 
such popularly received efforts as "The Royal 
Family," "Berkley Square," "Death Takes a 
Holiday," "No More Ladies," "Holiday," etc. 
The club will definitely miss his able and co- 
operative leadership in future years. 

Following "Petticoat Fever," the Footlight- 
ers scheduled their most difficult assignment 
in several years. For their mid-winter play 
they carded "Night Must Fall." The Emlyn 
Williams opus has been termed one of the 
most complicated and effective plays to be 
written, and requires skilled and painstaking 
histrionic ability. 

Modestly, the club can claim that "Night 
Must Fall" is one of the greatest successes in 
its years of campus playmaking. Immediately 
following its first night production, the pre- 
sentation played to packed and overflowing 
houses. The last two nights saw approxi- 
mately three hundred persons turned away 
from the University Auditorium because of a 
lack of seating accommodations. 

In cooperation with the President's Birth- 
day Fund Committee, the organization took 
its play to the Wardman Park Theater for a 
two-night stand. Poor publicity held the 
opening night audience down, but the sec- 
ond night was marked by a capacity house. 

To gain money for its final production, the 
club presented a novel type of drama, "The 



Three scenes from the biggest hit 
in many years, "Night Must Fall." 





Night of January 16," as its annual pay play. 
Such features as selecting a jury of audience 
members and having the witnesses in the per- 
formance sit with the patrons were enthusi- 
astically received by the playgoers. 

During the run of the yearly pay opus, 
prominent University and State officials were 
among those to sit in the jury box. Consid- 
erable interest was aroused in the verdicts 
rendered, and material was supplied for 
countless campus bull sessions. A novelty 
offered by the show was that no matter which 
verdict was given, the play was written so 
that it would fit. 

For its last production the club produced 
"Outward Bound," a play which has been 
acclaimed by critics the best of the century. 

The club was fortunate in securing Ralph 
I. Williams, assistant in student activities and 
former assistant director, as successor to Dr. 
Hale. Williams scored an immediate success 
with "Night Must Fall" and followed up with 
a smash hit, "The Night of January 16."

OTRIVING to regain some of the glory and 
prestige associated with former Maryland 
Glee Clubs, the present organization has en- 
joyed its most successful season since its re- 




Harlan Randall 



organization under Professor Harlan Randall 
three years ago. The presentation of con- 
certs in localities which had not been visited 
before won many new friends and admirers 
for the Glee Club. 

Early in November the season was formally 
opened with a concert in Rockville, followed 
shortly thereafter with an engagement in 
Damascus. In December the club appeared 
at the fall tapping ceremony of Omicron Del- 
ta Kappa in conjunction with the Women's 
Chorus. Just before the Christmas vacation 
the group was entertained at a dinner and 
dance at the National Park Seminary — a 
never-to-be-forgotten occasion. 

After a lull in activities provided by mid- 
year examinations, the Glee Club was heard 
on the All-University Night program and a 
few weeks later in the high school auditori- 
um in Bel Air. It also provided the major part 
of the music at the Annual Floral Style Show 
in the Coliseum. 



« 104 » 



In the early spring the club made an ex- 
tended tour of the Eastern Shore. The group 
visited the two leading Shore towns, Salis- 
bury and Cambridge, in which it scored suc- 
cessful hits. Music critics acclaimed the 
Old Line singers as the most popular tune 
wielders to perform on the eastern side of the 
Chesapeake in several years. 

In addition to the work of the Glee Club, 
the University Quartet, composed of Frank 
Stevenson, Al Whiton, Joseph Haimovicz, 
and David Stoddard, completed an active 
and successful year. The harmonizers in 
their first year of activity sang on an average 
of two to three times per week and received 
favorable comment in all engagements.

rus. With the cooperation of the Men's Glee 
Club, the chorus has given many excellent 
performances, both on and off the campus. 

At the Alumni Mixer following the Home- 
coming game the combined clubs gave their 
first performance. A concert in December 
was well attended by the students and gen- 
eral public, while in January the chorus par- 
ticipated in a broadcast over WFBR which 
was sponsored by the Women's Club of 
America. February was a busy month for 
the organization. Early in the month they 
entertained a capacity crowd at the Ritchie 
Coliseum, thus contributing their bit to the 
success of All-University Night. A few weeks

later at the Floral Show the combined clubs 
again entertained a full Coliseum. 

The biggest musical event of the year on 
the campus was the concert featuring the 
singing and playing of Geoffrey O'Hara, the 
famous American concert pianist and enter- 
tainer. During the month of March, the com- 
bined groups performed at the Maryland Day 
ceremonies, and also were the guests of the 
Maryland State Society at the Kennedy- 
Warren Hotel. 

Many audiences were delighted with the 
"Blue Danube Waltz" which featured an 
original dance by Betty Raymond. Zelma 
Truman also deserves praise for her work as 
a soloist. 

The main purpose of the club is to further 
musical education on the campus. Through 
the untiring efforts of Harlan Randall, direc- 
tor, and Mrs. Jessie Blaisdell, accompanist, 



the year 1937-38 has been guite a pleasant 
one for the girls interested in music at the 
University of Maryland. 

UNIVERSITY ORCHESTRA 

JLONG a crying need on the Maryland cam- 
pus, a University Orchestra has at last been 
formed under the direction of Fritz Maile. 
For two years a small group of musicians 
assembled for rehearsal from time to time. 
In February Harlan Randall, of the music 
department, secured funds and eguipment to 
launch this new musical venture in adeguate 
style. Several public appearances were 
made, particularly on Geoffrey O'Hara's 
program in March, with an appreciable 
measure of success. It is to be hoped that 
with the growth of musical interest at the 
University the orchestra may assume its right- 
ful place in the school's extra-curricula life.

STUDENT BAND 



Ur 



I NIVERSITY OF MARYLAND football fans were accorded a double treat late 
last September at the St. John's football game. In addition to a smart, aggressive 
team, the students and alumni in the stands were entertained by the enlarged 
student band, completely outfitted with shiny new black and gold uniforms. 

The auspicious opening day promise of better things to come in the realm of 
band music was not belied as the year wore on with its customary round of activi- 
ties. Not only was the band much larger than in previous years but the guality 
of music rendered was better than ever. 

The growth of the band to a seventy-piece organization was not a chance 
occurrence. At registration time all incoming students with musical ability were 
reguested to leave their names with a representative of the band who was in 
attendance for that purpose. As a result the band started to function early in 
the fall, being organized shortly after school began, and interest in it was stim- 
ulated. 

Without the student band, football, basketball and other games would seem 
strangely dull, In addition, it supplied the music for All-University Night, con- 
certs, Maryland Day and other occasions. Membership in the band involves a 
great deal of hard work on the part of the student. Over eighty rehearsals and 
performances are given during the year, and members are required to attend 
three-quarters of these rehearsals to be eligible for a letter. 

A genuine love for band music, football trips, letters, and honorary keys for 
four-year members constitute the major inducements for joining this musical 
organization. 

Although the physical rewards are few, the returns in knowledge gained and 
services performed are considered sufficient remuneration by the members.

NE of the most popular organizations on 
the Maryland campus is the International Rela- 
tions Club. Its organization was the result of 
a rising interest on the part of the students in 
current international problems. Under the 
leadership of Dr. Steinmeyer, an authority in 
the field of political science, the club was 
formed three years ago. It has progressed 

with age and now has a membership composed not only of students but also of faculty members. 
The prime attraction of this club is the prominent group of speakers that it annually brings 

to the campus. Some of the personages to speak this year were Sir Herbert Ames, former 

treasurer of the League of Nations; Dr. Fritz Ermarth, famous student of international relations; 

and Dr. Charles Pergler, former member of parliament in Czechoslovakia and minister to 

Japan, who discussed "Germany's Push to the East." 

Informal round table discussions of world affairs and problems are held, out of which 
many interesting debates and arguments developed. To be an active member of this club is 
an education in itself. 



DER DEUTSCH VEREIN 

XvEORGANIZED in 1936, after a dormant period of three years, Der Deutsch Verein is 
again actively supported by students interested in German. This year the club pursued the 
policy of previous years in conducting the meetings at the homes of various members. Discus- 
sions of German literature 
and art were featured at the 
meetings. Also included in 
the activities of the German 
Club were lectures and mov- 
ies by outside guests and short 
plays in German given by the 
active members of the club.

AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS 



President G. Clinton Brookhart

Secretary Robert H. Wettje 

Treasurer Elgin W. Scott 



i HE American Society of Civil Engineers is the oldest national engineering society in the 
United States, having been founded in 1852 for the advancement of engineering and archi- 
tectural knowledge and practice. The University of Maryland Chapter was organized here 
just two years ago. It embraces many of the numerous extra-curricular activities of the Engi- 
neering College, some of which are of a purely technical nature while others are of a social 
nature. 

The local student chapter during the year secured several outstanding engineers of the 
East as speakers for the regular monthly meetings. Among those who shared their practical 
experience with the Maryland neophytes was a graduate of the class of 1910, and vice-presi- 
dent of the J. E. Greiner Company of Baltimore. Other guest speakers were W. A. Van Duzer, 
Director of Vehicles and Traffic of Washington; and Dr. Frank Hess, of the United States Bureau 
of Mines. Two student members who presented lantern-lectures were John R. Browning and 
Thomas P. Wharton. They spoke on "Aerial Photographic Mapping" and "Mississippi Flood 
Control," respectively. 

The A.S.C.E., not to be outdone socially by the other campus organizations, cooperated 
with the Engineering Council of the University in staging the first annual "Engineers' Ball." 
Preceding the dance was the third annual conference of the Student Chapters of Maryland 
and the District of Columbia, of which the Maryland Chapter was host. Four neighboring 
A.S.C.E. organizations were guests at the conclave and were taken on inspection trips to the 
Bureau of Standards, Greenbelt, Arlington Memorial Bridge, and Burnt Mills.

IHE American Institute of Electrical Engineers was founded in 1884 when possibilities for 
an organization which would foster and encourage electrical engineering development were 
beginning to be recognized by the profession. 

The local branch, organized in 1936, is one of 119 similar groups that have been estab- 
lished in the leading educational institutions where courses in electrical engineering are given. 
The purpose of these branches is to provide an instrument to aid in the development of latent 
abilities of the students by participation in activities similar to those carried on by the institute 
members. Activities this year consisted for the most part of reading technical papers, prepared 
and delivered by student members. The branch cooperated with the Washington Section in 
staging College Night along with the branches at George Washington University and the Cath- 
olic University of America. 

AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS 

Chairman, Vernon Gray V.-Chr., Malcolm CoHison Sec, George Seeley Tres., Thomas Shaffer 

IHE student chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers was established this 
year on the University of Maryland campus. The installation culminated a campaign which 
the mechanical engineers had carried on for a number of years. The benefits of their per- 
sistent efforts are now being realized. 

The aim of this society is to acguaint the junior or senior mechanical engineering stu- 
dent with the outstanding developments and personalities in his chosen profession. Upon 
graduation, his membership is of inestimable value in reconciling him to his new environment. 

During the year the so- 
ciety's program has been 
guite varied. Social parties 
with games and dancing 
served as contrasts to tech- 
nical sessions of student 
lectures, motion pictures, 
guest speakers, field trips, 
and visits with neighboring 
societies. The year's ac- 
tivities were climaxed with 
a pleasure trip of some of

L HE Bacteriological Society is one of two groups composing the organization 
known as Sigma Alpha Omicron, the other chapter being located at Washing- 
ton State. Membership of the club is selected from junior, senior, and graduate 
students who take bacteriology as a major and who have completed at least six 
semester hours of bacteriological work with an average of at least 2.5 in those 
courses. 

The highlight of the society's activities was its sixth annual banquet, which 
was held at Wesley Hall in Washington. This gathering was a most enjoyable 
one, with approximately sixty guests, including students, graduates, and faculty 
members with their wives present. The speaker was Dr. Sara E. Branham of the 
National Institute of Health, an outstanding investigator in the work on meningo- 
cocci, who delivered a very interesting talk on the developments in her field of 
'research. 

Through such events the society attempts to fulfill its purpose by arranging 
discussions on topics of bacteriological interest, by stimulating and encouraging 
high scholarship, and by furthering a spirit of fellowship and cooperation among 
those who take this subject as a major.

JS4.EMBERSHIP in Student Grange is open to all students interested in agriculture and rural 
life. However, the activities of the club members bespeak more of a yen for action than the 
simple attachment to the charms of country life might indicate. 

During the past year the Grange aided in the promotion of the Agricultural Ball, which 
was held in the barn loft of the new dairy building. It also cooperated in the Fitting and Show- 
ing Exhibition held by the Livestock Club. 

Several members were recipients of the State Degree that is awarded for general excel- 
lence by the State Grange Organization. 

The Maryland unit is a chapter of the National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Hus- 
bandry, the oldest and only farm fraternity in the world. 

LIVESTOCK CLUB 

OIXTY-NINE active members are on the roll of the Livestock Club, one of the most active 
organizations on the campus. The membership is drawn from those students of the College of 
Agriculture who take animal and dairy husbandry as a major. 

The Livestock Club has a threefold purpose, namely, to stimulate interest in animal hus- 
bandry, to promote the fitting and showing of cattle by students on the campus, and to bring 
about a greater spirit of cooperation and friendliness among the agricultural students. 

During the past year the highlight of the club's activities was a Fitting and Showing Ex- 
hibition held on the Maryland campus in April.

chapters with 90,000 members in 47 states, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. The club is founded 
upon the principles of leadership, brotherhood, cooperation, and a love for rural life. The 
Maryland local chapter was organized in the spring of 1936 and is designed primarily for the 
students majoring in Agricultural Education who later expect to work with rural people. 

The club, in conjunction with the Student Grange, entered the "Big Apple" Float on 
Homecoming Day which won first place. An annual Field Day is sponsored by the local chap- 
ter in April. This year members cooperated with the Agricultural Council in giving a barn 
dance and in inaugurating a Father and Son Banguet which hereafter will be an annual affair. 



DAYDODGERS CLUB 

v^O-EDS who do not live on the campus compose the membership of the Daydodgers Club. 
Through the club they are able to keep in contact with the various campus activities and to 
participate in college functions. 

To meet the social needs of the group, an interesting program was developed and carried 
out during the past year. Members of the club rented bicycles on one occasion and spent a 
most enjoyable afternoon cycling along the Potomac. At another time the girls tried their 
skill at bowling in one of the popular bowling alleys of Washington. A wiener roast also 
proved to be a great success, the menu consisting of the conventional hot dogs, apple cider, 
and toasted marshmallows. 

The program was cli- ^kt ^" --*-

J. HE Young Women's Christian Association has been active at the University of Maryland 
for eight years. In the last two years this group has functioned as an independent organiza- 
tion separate and distinct from the Maryland Christian Association. Originally it was organ- 
ized as the women's branch of the Maryland Christian Association. 

The varied program for the Young Women's Christian Association this year included 
educational programs, social service work and functions. To start off the year, the club gave 
a tea for freshman girls. A Christmas party for a relief family was held, two fashion shows 
displaying fall and spring ensembles were given, and several outstanding speakers were 
brought to the campus by the organization. The Young Women's Christian Association also 
held its annual student-faculty tea, an informal meeting of students with faculty members for 
the purpose of getting the two groups better acquainted. 

The executive body of the Young Women's Christian Association is the cabinet, composed 
of the club officers and the respective committee chairmen. 

Miss McNaughton has been the faculty adviser for the Young Women's Christian Asso- 
ciation for several years.

relationship among the Lutheran students. A 
well-balanced program is carried on which in- 
cludes talks by prominent speakers, religious 
and social meetings, and outdoor gatherings. 

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday 
of each month of the school year and all stu- 
dents are cordially invited to attend. 

The club reorganized at a steak roast in 
September and since then has had as guests 
such prominent speakers as Coleman Jen- 




nings, Dr. Mary Markley, Sergeant Veronica 
Denlin of the Women's Police Bureau, and 
Rev. Henry Whiting, a graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. 

In May the activities of the Lutheran Club 
were brought to a close with an enjoyable 
beach party attended by all the active mem- 
bers. 



EPISCOPAL CLUB

1 HE purpose of the Newman Club is to promote the religious, educational, and 
social welfare of the Catholic students on the campus. 

Since its organization in 1935, the outstanding goal of the club has been to 
institute Mass on the campus on Sundays and on holidays of obligation. This 
year the goal was reached and Maryland students now may hear Mass and 
receive the Sacraments in a convenient place at a convenient time. 

Under the guidance of its new moderator and chaplain, Father Walsh, Com- 
missary of the Franciscan Monastery in Washington, and the faculty adviser, 
Dr. Wittier, of the Sociology Department, the club was reorganized and a new 
constitution adopted. An important objective was realized when the Newman 
Club became a member of The Federation of College Catholic Clubs. 

The first significant campus activity of the club this year was the winning of 
first prize, an engraved cup, in the historical division of the Homecoming Day 
parade. Then followed an orchestra dance to which all Catholic students were 
invited. Twice a month thereafter regular business and social meetings were 
held in various buildings on the campus. Debates, addresses by speakers from 
the University faculty and from outside sources, discussions, formal and informal 
entertainment, communion breakfasts, and off-the-campus trips, featured club 
activity for the remainder of the year.

RIDING CLUB 

President Elizabeth Harrover 

Vice-President Robert Lips 

Secretary-Treasurer Jane Kraft 

OEVERELY handicapped by lack of a stable on the campus, the Riding Club has made the 
most of the situation by patronizing the private stables in the immediate vicinity. The riders 
are, to say the least, enthusiastic, considering their willingness to rise at six in the morning in 
order to go on early morning rides. 

Unfortunately for the Riding Club, the weather man does not always cooperate with their 
eguestrian ventures. Snow, cold, and rain have spoiled many a well-planned ride. However, 
the club members, viewing the situation as a challenge to their hardiness, seldom postpone or 
cancel a ride because of weather conditions. Even torrential downpours seem to be no ob- 
stacle for the lovers of the sport and many a ride has been conducted amid the outpouring 
of an outraged sky. In the early fall and late spring moonlight rides lure the eguestrians with 
their thrills, chills, romances, and spills. 

One of the features of the year was early morning rides with hot breakfasts served to the 
hungry riders on their return to the campus. Although the early fall and late spring are the 
periods of greatest activity in the club's life, the winter season is not one of stagnation on the 
part of its administration. Indoor meetings are held to which guest speakers are invited to 
address the members and plans are made for the spring rides. 

The Riding Club has been concentrating a great deal of its efforts during the past year 
in an attempt to have the University construct stables on the campus.

TERRAPIN SWIMMING CLUB

Treasurer Carl Erode 

xTLLTHOUGH lacking the facilities of a pool in the vicinity, the Swimming Club has grown 
until it is now one of the largest organizations on the campus with a paid-up membership of 
nearly two hundred. This rapid growth can be attributed principally to the many diversified 
activities of the natatorial organization. Approximately two meetings a month are held — 
meetings that can scarcely be termed dry, since each usually features a swim in the Venetian 
Pool of the Shoreham Hotel. Occasionally, when the club does not swim, refreshments are 
served, technicolor movies of the club's activities are shown, or some other entertainment is 
provided. 

At the swims, water polo games are popular, especially, among the more active members 
of the club, although the so-called "weaker sex" often participates in the games. In addition, 
instruction is given by competent persons to members who desire it in life saving, swimming, 
and diving. 

A dance was given in the fall introducing some novel features to the campus. The last 
dance, a "popping" good one, was made colorful by fifteen hundred balloons. 

At the end of the spring term, a beach party, free to active members, was sponsored by 
the club. This affair lasted all day and was climaxed by an enjoyable dance in the evening. 

The club not only provides excellent opportunities for social and athletic activities, but ii 
also generates good feeling on the campus.

TERRAPIN TRAIL CLUB 



President Edward W. Hepburn 

Vice-President William Doying 

Secretary Grace Louise Greenwood 

Treasurer John R. Jehle 

Advisers Dr. and Mrs. Herman DuBuy 

HiVERY other Sunday afternoon the Terrapin Trailers leave the Administration Building for 
a short jaunt across the countryside. Their short hikes have included explorations of the Col- 
lege Park vicinity and trips to Sligo, Kensington, and Rock Creek Parks. Fort Washington on 
the Potomac was visited and two or three treks along the old C. and O. canal proved most 
interesting. 

On longer trips the club went to Frederick one holiday and enjoyed tramping in Gambrill 
State Park. Another all-day hike was made to Great Falls during mid-semester vacation. In 
October the Trailers drove to Smoke Hole, West Virginia, for the week-end to explore Cave 
Mountain near Franklin, West Virginia, and from all reports they did some real exploring. 
At the end of each hike a camp fire is built and supper cooked, each person assessed a 
small fee to cover both food and transportation. After supper there is singing and games until 
time to start home. 

The club has trailed a long way since its founding in the spring of 1937, when the idea of 
a hiking club was conceived by Eleanor Cooley. It has left behind a well-blazed trail, not 
only on the landscape, but also on the minds of those who have worked in order that the club 
might become a better known campus organization. The value of the Trail Club is fully recog- 
nized by the members who have gained a greater appreciation of the out-of-doors through 
taking a few hours off to hike with the Terrapin Trail Club.

Prom Leaders 



Eleanor Powell and Ray Bolger added zest to the 
Junior Prom 




r EATURING the slide music of Russ Morgan, the 
annual Junior Prom was held at the Willard Hotel 
in Washington January 27th. 

An unusual feature of the prom was the per- 
sonal appearance of Eleanor Powell, famous cine- 
ma star, and Ray Bolger, dancer. The young 
ladies of the Maryland campus who were candi- 
dates for the Beauty Queen were presented to 
them at that time.

ROSSBOURG CLUB 

IHE Gibson girl was in her glory and 
bustles were quite the thing when the Ross- 
bourg Club was formed in 1891. The Uni- 
versity of Maryland was the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College and the student body was 
numbered in the hundreds, but all that 
didn't deter the young socialites of the 
nineties who had decided that the social 
side of college life needed organization. 

Properly enough the founders chose the 
name of their club from the historic old 
Rossbourg Inn which stood and still stands 
on the campus. Washington and many 
other notables stopped there in its prime. 
Lafayette even recorded that he was enter- 




Dancing to the n:\usic o£ Will 
Osborn and his orchestra 



tained there at one time. In the 1800's the 
Inn was still the social center of the dis- 
trict, but in later years business declined 
and it was closed. 

Dr. Skinner, President of the Board of 
Regents, was one of the early presidents of 
the organization. In his day the dances 
ended sharply at 12:00 o'clock so that the 
boys could catch the train and get their 
dates home. From time to time the locale 
of the dances shifted as the club expanded, 
the latest changes being from the dining 
hall to the Gym- Armory. 

The year 1937-38 season was an un- 
usually successful one in Rossbourg an- 
nals. Four dances have been held as "The 
Terrapin" goes to press, with the bands of 
Jolly Coburn, Dean Hudson, Will Osborn, 
and Don Bestor furnishing the music for 
the occasions. An innovation of this year's 
administration limited attendance to all 
dances to the members of the club.

Sponsored by the Reserve Officers' Training Corps 



lCCORDING to their usual custom, the Reserve Officers' Training Corps sponsored the 
military ball on March 18th, Jerry Livingston, young composer-maestro, providing the music 
for the occasion. Colonel Benjamin McCleskey and Josephine Bragaw, assisted by Lieutenant 
Colonel Robert Walton and Shirley Shaw, led the grand march. 

Two novelties of the dance were the tapping of Juniors for Scabbard and Blade, and the 
presentation of a silent Zouave drill by Pershing Rifles. 

Decorations were in military style, consisting of rifle stacks, machine guns, 37 mm. guns, 
and other warlike implements.

UNE WEEK, the grand finale in 
the college life of each Senior, be- 
gan with the class banguet held on 
the campus. Immediately follow- 
ing, the crowd ambled toward the 
Gym-Armory for the final Ross- 
bourg dance of the season. 

Next night the Class of 1938 
played host to the incoming Se- 
nior Class by holding the Junior- 
Senior German. 

The afternoon of June 3rd will 
live long in the memory of the Se- 
niors, as this was Class Day. There 
were inspiring talks by prominent people and also the presentation of awards for the scholastic 
year 1937-38. That night the June Ball was held with Dr. Harry C. Byrd as host, and to which 
only members of the Senior Class were invited. 

Next day, sleepy and tired, members of the class received well-earned recognition — their 
diplomas.

BARN DANCE 

Sponsored by the Agricultural 
Student Council 



iHE Agricultural Student Coun- 
cil, a delegate committee of the 
student agricultural clubs and or- 
ganizations, gained its first social 
recognition on the Maryland cam- 
pus by sponsoring a colorful and 
unigue barn dance in the new 
barns early in April. 

Overalls and gingham dresses 
were much in evidence, contrib- 
uting to the hayloft atmosphere, 
while the "Marylanders" pro- 
vided all types of rhythmical en- 
tertainment from mountain music 
to "Loch Lommond." Sguare 
dancing was guite the style early 
in the evening, but finally gave 
way to the "Big Apple" and the 
other terpsichorean gyrations 
common of the present day.

HOMECOMING 



An all-victory day for Maryland teams fittingly climaxed the Homecoming 
celebration and the silver anniversary of President Byrd's return to the Uni- 
versity. The soccer team defeated Johns Hopkins for the state title while, in 
the big attraction, the football team took Florida into camp by a 13-7 count. 
The Homecoming festivities were launched on Friday night, October 29, 
1937, with a bonfire in front of the girls' dormitory. Next morning the in- 







habitants of Greek lodges trimmed their houses to welcome the "home- 
comers," Sigma Nu, Alpha Omicron Pi, and Kappa Alpha winning awards 
for the best decorated houses. The Freshman Class pulled thirty "Sophs" 
through Paint Branch for the annual dousing. 

Celebrations were concluded that evening by the Alumni dance in the 
Ritchie Coliseum with music by Dan Gregory. 




ALL-UNIVERSITY 
NIGHT 



PiVE thousand persons jammed Ritchie CoHseum the night of Febru- 
ary 11th to witness the fifth annual All-University Night triangle attrac- 
tion, which featured a cage battle between the Terps and V.M.I.'s 
Keydets, a boxing match with Western Maryland College, and a pageant- 
parade of student activities. 

The athletic department came through with victories in both basket- 
ball and boxing, and the student activities pageant was acclaimed one 
of the best ever to be presented at the University.

Pershing Rifles, dressed in the uniforms of the Old Line battalion of Revolutionary War 
fame, executed a perfect silent drill and was followed closely by girls from the Women's Ath- 
letic Association, uniquely dressed in contrast to the "Old Line" and cleverly entitled "The 
New Line." The Women's Chorus, the Men's Glee Club, and the Quartet sang separately 
and combined for the musical attraction of the evening. Girls of the Physical Education De- 
partment gave exhibitions of dancing, archery, and various sports. The Men's Physical Edu- 
cation majors executed accomplished gymnastic stunts. Numerous other events, such as 
wrestling and fencing, contributed to the entertainment of the evening.

CAMPUS LIFE 

C-/AMPUS LIFE is not always a continual round of pleasure that it is sometimes supposed to 
be. The skeptical are hereby referred to a student who has studied until 4 a.m. all week long 
for an important quiz while living on coffee and aspirin. 




Yet, withal, there are pleasures inseparably connected with college campus life. The 
tingling excitement on windy autumn Saturdays, the lazy spring days of idling around the 
campus, and the perennial spring romances are living vital memories to those who have tasted 
of such pleasures. Casual conversations, Saturday night dates, and trips to the movies, all 
these and many others constitute a portion of the true picture of campus life.

MAY DAY 

A 



n 



CLEAR day with a blue sky on May 4th added the final touch of perfection to the 1938 
May Day, perhaps one of the finest given in recent years. The Maryland co-eds, dressed in 
colorful costumes, and presenting a pageant with a well adapted theme entitled "Maryland - 
A Miniature of America," gave hundreds of spectators on the Library Green an hour of extra- 
ordinary entertainment. Jean Patterson, May Queen, and her maids were the center of May 
Day festivities. 




FIELD DAY 

On May 7th half a thousand trackmen from the State and District convened in the Byrd 
Stadium to participate in the University's twenty-first annual Field Day. The starter's gun 
cracked all afternoon as heat after heat of track events were run off and many a well-known 
professor was seen in the new role of field judge. Making the day interesting for Maryland 
rooters, the Terps took Rutgers across in track, Washington and Lee in baseball, and Catholic 
University in tennis.

LEADERSHIP HONORARIES 

V^NE of the principal objectives of a university is to 
give training in leadership. Fundamentals underlying 
this essential attribute can be assimilated bit by bit from 
the classroom, but to be of practical value these funda- 
mentals must be given opportunity, through application, 
to modify the habits of the individual. Honorary frater- 
nities for leadership at the University of Maryland act 
as a reward to those who have been recognized as lead- 
ers in curricular and extra-curricular activities, just as 
other awards await those who choose to lead in their 
respective fields of endeavor.

J-jONG before the founding of Omicron Delta 
Kappa, the need had been felt in many univer- 
sities throughout the country for a definite means 
of recognizing those undergraduates whose serv- 
ices to their Alma Maters had placed them in 
position of outstanding campus leadership. In 
reaching this position, these students, as well as 
those of today in similar circumstances, had main- 
tained high standards, both in character and 
scholarship. 

It was with this thought in mind that a small 
group of men attending Washington and Lee 
University in 1914 formed the nahonal honorary 
fraternity that exists today in colleges throughout 
the country. 

Sigma Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa was 
brought into existence on this campus in Febru- 
ary,' 1927, and Dr. R. V. Truitt was named its ad- 
viser. Among the charter members initiated at 
that time were: Dr. Truitt, Dr. H. C. Byrd, Dr. 
E. N. Cory, and Dr. W. S. Small. Nine under- 
graduates were inducted with these men and 
unto them fell the task of starting the University 
of Maryland Circle upon its successful career. 

Each year, at the spring and fall ceremonies, 
outstanding undergraduates, together with four 
other persons are tapped for membership. Of 
the four named, two are selected from the faculty, 
the third is a man who has achieved state promi- 
nence, and the fourth is a citizen of national 
prominence. 

Much of the success of Sigma Circle, its very 
founding, in fact, is due to untiring efforts and 
inspiration of its adviser. Dr. Truitt, and to him 
members of the past and present extend their 
sincerest gratitude for his services.

iHE activities of Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary 
journalistic fraternity, were curtailed somewhat 
this year because the majority of members held 
responsible positions on the school publications, 
and as a consequence had little time in which to 
further the aims of the fraternity. 

Pi Delt did sponsor the annual publications 
banquet at Indian Springs Country Club in honor 
of the staffs of "The Diamondback," 'Terrapin," 
and "Old Line." Modeled after Washington's 
famed Gridiron Club dinners, the banquet was 
termed one of the most outstanding in publica- 
tion history. 

The activities and influence of Pi Delta Epsilon 
resulted in a closer relationship among the three

IhIS national honorary military fraternity was 
founded in 1904 by five cadet officers at the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin. Today the organization is 
composed of seventy-eight chapters with a total 
membership of twenty-six thousand in leading 
colleges and universities throughout the United 
States. There are three forms of membership in 
Scabbard and Blade — active, associate and hon- 
orary. The first type is given only to R.O.T.C. 
cadet officers. Associate and honorary mem- 
berships are conferred upon officers of any branch 
of the various military services of the United 
States, and upon outstanding leaders in civilian 
life. 

The purpose of the fraternity is to promote a 
more intelligent understanding of military affairs, 
and to help increase the efficiency of the young 
men who will be the officers and leaders in the 
military organizations of our country in the future. 

Company I, Third Regiment, the local unit, was 
established at the University of Maryland in 1922. 
Since that time Scabbard and Blade has served 
as a stimulus to the members of the advanced 
course in R.O.T.C. Candidates for membership in 
1-3 are selected upon three basic standards — 
proficiency in military leadership, scholastic 
standing, and all-around good fellowship.

'N August 12, 1925, Alpha Psi Omega was 
organized at Fairmont State Teachers College. 
Since that date the national honorary dramatic 
fraternity has added one hundred and twenty- 
nine chapters to its roster. The University of 
Maryland is represented by Iota Cast. 

The national not only recognizes outstanding 
Thespians for their histrionic and dramatic ability, 
but secures reduced royalty rates for produc- 
tions. It publishes a quarterly magazine, "The 
Playbill," in addition to the national constitution, 
ceremonies and songs, and a directory. 

The local cast has conducted an annual play- 
writing contest and has produced several one- 
act plays during the past several years.

Company C, 5th Regiment established at the 
University of Maryland in 1935 



V-/OMPANY C, Fifth Regiment of Pershing Rifles, a national 
honorary society for basic R.O.T.C. students, was organized 
at the University of Maryland in the spring of 1935. This 
year the membership was double that of last year and activi- 
ties were increased accordingly. These included the escort 
of honor provided for the Governor at the dedication of the 
new Bureau of Mines Building, a banguet and initiation at 
Fort Meade, escort of honor for Adjutant-General Edgar T. 
Conley at the Omicron Delta Kappa tapping ceremony, 
silent drill exhibition for All-University Night, a formal dance. 
Zouave drill at the Military Ball, participation in the Maryland 
Day celebration, an exhibihon for Military Day, and the an- 
nual spring banguet. 

Pershing Rifles was founded to develop the ideals of the 
military profession, to promote American citizenship, and to 
provide appropriate recognition of military ability among 
cadets of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps.

FOOTBALL 

IN URSED and guided by the capable hands 
of Coach Frank M. Dobson, the 1937 Terra- 
pin pigskinners breezed through a tough ten- 
game schedule, copping eight decisive wins 
and dropping only two hard-fought battles to 
newcomers on the schedule — University of 
Pennsylvania and Penn State — to annex one 
of the best records in the history of football 
at Maryland. 

Sad indeed looked the ranks thinned by 
graduation and resignation, and the outlook' 



was equally as gloomy when the Old Liners 
began the season with an unimpressive win 
over St. John's of Annapolis. Throughout this 
contest Mr. Dobson' s boys ran at will against 
the weaker Johnnies and at the final gun the 
scoreboard read Maryland, 25; St. John's, 0. 

Dearth of Terrapin reserves was empha- 
sized in a stirring battle against the Quakers 
of the University of Pennsylvania in Phila- 
delphia — a game in which Maryland's Meade 
outshone the whole Penn eleven. It was in 
this tilt also that the deadly passing arm of 
Charlie Weidinger was brought into the light 
and given an inauguration under approving 
eyes. Due to confused pass defense and lack

of good benchwarmers, the Quakers scored 
thrice in the third canto to overcome the 
Terp lead of the half and take the second 
game of the season, 28-21. 

Western Maryland invaded College Park 
in quest of the mythical State Championship, 
but their team, weakened by graduation and 
scholastic troubles, was turned away in a see- 
saw skirmish by a meagre 6-0 score. In the 
early part of the game there was a sensa- 
tional trek the length of the field, climaxed 
by the only touchdown of the game. The con- 
test ended with the Terrors making a desper- 
ate touchdown attempt from Terp territory. 

By virtue of the educated toe of Pershing 
Mondorff, newcomer to the Liners, Virginia 
bowed in the fourth fracas. It was anybody's

Director, greets Lew Andrews, Ath-

game and a play of lines and a threatening 
Virginia backfield. However, the Cavaliers 
failed to realize any dividends from their 
much publicized "touchdown plays" and in 
the closing minutes of the fray Mondorff 
booted Weidinger's placement across the 
bar for the only tally of the classic. Score: 
Maryland, 3; Virginia, 0. 

On the next Saturday, the previously un- 
defeated Syracuse eleven was drubbed, flat- 
tened and mixed with the mud of Baltimore 
by the under-dogs from College Park for one 
of the major upsets in the nation's year of 
gridiron upsets. The Old Line lads per- 
formed as a unit, the powerful and clicking 
line time and again breaking up Orange 
plays and clearing the road for Jumbo Jim

Mondorff (No. 50) pulled Maryland out of a hole in the last two nr\inutes of play against V.M.I, with this field goal from the 
nine-yard line. The Cadets led 7-6 until Mondorff came through with this deadly kick.

tional recognition. CharUe Weidinger's arm 
came in good stead to heave the opening 
touchdown to John "Sport" McCarthy. With 
a couple of minutes left to play, Frank Skot- 
nicki, sensational Sophomore halfback, inter- 
cepted a frantic pass from the hands of 
Orangemen's Burns Marvel and sprinted 
thirty-odd yards to put the game on ice. 
Final: Maryland, 13; Syracuse, 0. 

Coach Dobson's charges delighted a ca- 
pacity homecoming crowd by raking Florida 




over the coals in a stirring fight between the 
'Gators' speedy Mayberry and the Terp back- 
field huskies. Smothering the Southerners in 
a barrage of tricks, Meade and Weidinger 
led the Terps to two touchdowns against the 
visitors' one. The score was 13-7. 

The second invasion of Old Dominion soil 
saw the accurate toe of Mondorff snatch a vic- 
tory out of the teeth of the V.M.I. Cadets, 
with the score 7-6 in favor of the Cadets, the 
Indian with the mighty foot booted a field 
goal in the last minute in his usual heroic 
fashion, making the final record 9-7, the 
Free State's margin. 

Penn State put the damper on the Terrapin 
winning streak by emerging victorious from 
a spirited scrap on their own soil. Led by 
the brilliant Weidinger, the Liners knotted 
the count 14 all in the third guarter, but the 
Lions put on steam and countered with a 
touchdown in the last guarter to register the 
second and last defeat of the season for the 
Terps. Score; Penn State, 21; Maryland, 14. 

Outstanding guarterbacking and faultless 
line play by Maryland's iron men brought a 
hard-earned victory to the College Parkers 
over the Hoyas of Georgetown in Griffith 
Stadium in the semi-windup match. The 
Washingtonians could not withstand the bat-

BASKETBALL 

Winning fourteen and losing eight of its court 
games, Maryland's basketball team experienced a 
successful season, completing the campaign with a 
percentage of .626. 

Maryland dropped the two opening games, the 
first to the Spiders of Richmond 31-26 and the sec- 
ond to Michigan 43-26. Baltimore proved the first 
victim for the onslaughts of Norton, Knepley and 
Company, falling to the count of 50-32. From this 
point on "Dutch" Knepley, Bill Norton, and Wave 
Wheeler waged a merry race for individual scoring 
honors. Final results showed Wheeler on top with 
163 points, Knepley second with 158 markers, and 
Norton in third position with 147. 

During the early portion of the season, the Liners 
seemed unable to click, but after the turn of the 
semester, the court machine began to roll along 
merrily and by February 3rd had won only six 
games and dropped eight. After that date they won 
eight straight, despite the fact their high-scoring 
pivot man, "Biff" Norton, was lost for the remainder 
of the season. 

So greatly improved was the brand of ball dis- 
played by the Liners that they quickly assured them- 
selves of a place in the Conference tournament. 
However, after downing the Citadel 45-43 in the 
tourney opener, the Marylanders lost to the Con- 
ference-winning" Blue Devils of Duke 35-33 in the 
semi-final round. 

It was a team which was continually changing 
because of minor injuries to key men. Adam Bengo- 
echea, Ed Johnson, Wave Wheeler, and Bill Mulitz 
were found alternating at the forward posts. In mid- 
court were Bill Norton, Franny Beamer, and John 
McCarthy, while "Dutch" Knepley, Coleman Head- 
ley, Pershing Mondorff, and Bill Rea took care of 
the guard positions. 

Whem Coach Shipley calls his varsity courtmen 
next season he will find the great majority of this 
year's court aggregation in uniform and ready for 



Headley

active duty. Of those who comprised this fast-step- 
ping team, only three will be lost — Coleman Head- 
ley, Wave Wheeler, and John McCarthy. While no 
predictions are in order, it will be a veteran squad 
which will be seeking Southern Conference bas- 
ketball laurels during the next campaign. 

In all, it was one of the most successful seasons a 
Maryland court team has experienced in years. 
When a team can lose its pivot man, who is also its 
highest scoring luminary, in mid-season, and then 
go on to win eight straight games, it deserves the 
highest praise. It was not a team of world beaters 
that took the floor for Maryland during the season 
just past, but it was a combine that exhibited a 
superior brand of court play, and the results ran 
true to form.

BOXING 

Handcuffed by graduation and 
resignation, Maryland's Southern Con- 
ference defending champions dropped 
three matches and tied two of a six- 
meet season. With one lone veteran, 
Benny Alperstein, fighting in the 125, 
135, and 145-pound classes, Coach 
Harvey L. "Heinie" Miller juggled his 
green team about the entire season in 
a vain effort to find a winning com- 
bination. Pitting his rookies against 
the veterans in the Southern Confer- 
ence tournament he was able to draw 
only a triangle tie for fourth place, as 
the Terps dropped their crown to the 
powerful Clemson aggregation. 

In the initial set-up of the 1938 sea- 
son, the Terrapins met the Blue Devils 
from Duke on January 15th and earned 
an unexpected tie from the experi- 
enced Durham leathermen. George 
Dorr, 115-pounder, although he lost by 
a decision to Bob Price of the visitors, 
established himself as a potential threat 
in the lead-off position. Dick Johnson, 
Terp middleweight flash, rocked Vin- 
cent of Duke time and again with vicious 
ambidextrous flurries but tired badly in

clared hors de combat with only a second to 
go in the tilt. It was, without question, the 
outstanding thriller of the year. Eddie Lloyd 
and Joe Henderson battered out decisions to 
clinch a tie for the Old Liners. 

Catholic University's sluggers gave Colo- 
nel Miller's men trouble in the second meet. 
Dorr counter-punched to victory over C.U.'s 
Davie Bernstein, dealing the Brooklander his 
first college defeat. Coach Miller sacrificed 
Alperstein to a draw with Fred Mix in the 
145-pound class so that Nathan Askin, prom- 
ising Sophomore 135-pounder, might rein- 
force the Maryland team. Askin won handily 
in his division. Ralph "Blackie" Pearson 
dropped a close, disputed fight in the light- 



heavy class and Joe Henderson took an ini- 
tial round T.K.O. from Leo Katalinas for the 
major excitement of the evening. 

National champion Benny Alperstein met 
defeat for the second time in his college 
career when he climbed up to the 145-pound 
class to meet Co-captain Maynard Harlow of 
the Cavaliers when Virginia invaded the 
Coliseum February 5th. Blackie Pearson and 
Moe Egan furnished two thrilling duels in 
the 165 and light-heavy classes, respectively, 
when Pearson lost a slam-bang fray to Inter- 
collegiate Champion Ray Schmidt and Egan 
was awarded a decision. The Cavaliers 
avenged last year's defeat by downing the 
Terps 5-3.

Western Maryland took a shellacking All- 
University Night in the Coliseum. Before a 
capacity crowd the Maryland thumpers 
worked over the Green Terrors to the tune 
of 5 '2 to 2j2 for the only win of the season. 
It was in this meeting that George Acree was 
introduced to Maryland fans. After a bril- 
liant battle, he dropped his engagement to 
the Terrors by reason of greater experience, 
in the light-heavy set-up Blackie Pearson took 
a potential haymaker flush on his. nose, in- 
capacitating him for the remainder of the 
season. Blackie, however, won the bout in 
a few seconds with one explosive right which 
spelled T.K.O. to Lsinski. 

In the concluding match of the year. Colo- 
nel Miller journeyed with his group to New 



Brunswick to engage the Rutgers pack, and 
was turned back 6-3 in a meet which fea- 
tured two 155-pound bouts and a forfeit. 
Maryland lost both 155-pound fights, and 
Jose Peralta was awarded the point for for- 
feiture. Askin and Alperstein contributed 
the other two Millermen points, while Marty 
Rocklin and Joe Henderson lost decisions and 
Moe Egan absorbed a T.K.O. in the third 
round. 

Maryland's 1938 record is not impressive. 
There is, however, a gratifying outlook for 
future seasons as most of the regulars will be 
in uniform next year. With recruits from the 
ill-fated Frosh lineup, a potent squad will part 
the ropes for Colonel Miller when the gong 
sounds in 1939.

BASEBALL 

v^'PENING their season by winning five straight games, the Shipleymen seemed to be cer- 
tain of fulfilhng pre-season predictions of an undefeated season and a possible Southern 
Conference diamond crown. The Terps knocked off Vermont 16-6 in the schedule opener 
March 28th. The following day Ohio State bowed before the Maryland boys, 10-1. 
Shortly thereafter a much-touted Cornell club fell before the Terrapin sluggers, 12-8. 
Then, on a short Southern Conference tour, the locals downed a strong V.M.I, team, 6-5, 
after a scheduled Washington and Lee game had been postponed because of the in- 
clement weather. 

The Nittany Lions of Penn State were the next bunch to feel the effects of Terp batting 
as the Liner nine trounced them 7-4. Then came tragedy in the form of a defeat by 
Michigan's Wolverines. Despite the fact that Coach Shipley even had Eddie Johnson, 
Terp keystone sacker, pitching, after using all other available mound material, Maryland 
went down to an ignominious 16-6 defeat. 

Rallying slightly on the second Southern Conference trip, the Terps were able to 
defeat a strong Virginia nine led by Bill Terry, Jr. Bill Steiner, Maryland right-handed 
twirling artist, did the mound honors up right and Eddie Johnson starred on the defense

as he muffed none out of twelve chances to put out a Cavalier player. The Terps won 5-1. 

But Duke's Blue Devils proved too potent for the Maryland lads. In a double-header 
during the Easter holidays, the Dukes trounced the Terps 9-7 and 8-2. Continuing the 
Southern Conference circuit, the Shipleymen lost to William and Mary's Indians 4-1, 
when Indian pitcher Waugh proved to have too much on the ball for the Maryland sluggers. 

Then came the biggest upset of the year. A pronounced underdog because of its 
difficulties against Michigan, Duke, and William and Mary, Maryland came up for its 
game with Georgetown Saturday, April 23rd, with no one willing to give them any show 
against the Hilltoppers. Georgetown had not been bested in nineteen collegiate contests 
and was looking forward to another undefeated season like the one of 1937. To add to 
Maryland's pre-game misery the Hoyas had trounced Michigan and the Wolverines had 
swamped Maryland 16-6. 

But the Terrapin sluggers, backing up Bill Steiner who gained the title of "sensation" 
with his slow unworried twirling against the Hilltoppers, beat out hits which were con- 
verted into runs totalling 6 contrasted to Georgetown's 4. Wave Wheeler, Terp third 
sacker, smashed one out for a home run in the first canto and drove in Dutch Knepley, 
Terp hot corner artist, who had been languishing on second. From then on out, the 
Hoyas' defeat was a certainty.

With a pitching staff as weak as the punch at a W.G.T.U. banquet, the Shipleymen 
have ridden well the rocky schedule set for them this season. Maryland slugging, well- 
above average, has made up in part for the failure of the mound staff, but the failure of the 
other eight men on the field in backing up the pitchers in their efforts has lost several games 
for Maryland. 

Joe Crisafull filled in a full-time job in the backstopping post; Dutch Knepley in his 
second year on the hot corner played outstanding ball and maintained a good batting 
average to boot. Eddie Johnson left little to be desired in his work at second and was 
aided no end by Shorty Chumbris at shortstop. Wave Wheeler made up for any errors 
he may have made on third by coming through time and time again with hits which saved 
the day for Maryland. Moose Surgent, Bill Bryant, and Lefty Chumbris filled their post in 
left, center, and right field capably and boosted the Terrapin batting average.

LACROSSE 

Inheriting a Prlnceton-shared National Championship from last 
year's team, Coach "Jack" Faber's 1938 lacrosse ten faced a hard 
schedule of top-line tens in the country. While many of the 1937 
squad graduated, they were replaced capably by candidates from 
the past season's Frosh. 

Fred "Rip" Hewitt, George Watson and Parker Lindsay in attack 
positions, and Hack Deeley at goal constituted the nucleus for the 
new team and were supplemented in the defense corps by husky 
Jim Meade. From the 1937 Frosh squad came youngsters who 
starred with the varsity their first year. Among the most impressive 
performers were Willie Bond and Jimmie Heil, who established 
themselves in first-string berths their first year, and Leo Mueller, 
Charlie Parvis, Poony Wilson, Bill Graham and Bill Ray. "Big Bob" 
Brown, George Lawrence, Ralph Albarano and Frank Skotnicki con- 
stitute a foursome who are fast learning the game after first tackling 
it last spring. 

In the season's opener with Swarthmore, the Terps tallied eight 
times to the visitor's three to lay the path for another string of

victories. Rip Hewitt made a bid for Ail-American berth in this tilt 
as he hit the net five times for more than half of Maryland's score. 
The Old Liners' play was ragged throughout most of the contest as 
there was a lively exchange of rookie material from the bench. 

Mount Washington, composed of many former Maryland players, 
defeated the Fabermen by a 6-4 count on May 2nd. Maryland's 
defense showed remarkable improvement over the Swarthmore 
game, and the attack was bolstered by the return of Bobbie Neil- 
son to the roster. However,' the powerful National Open Champions 
showed amazing strength and built up a 5-3 margin at the half. 
Each team netted one in the final period to complete the scoring. 

Maryland next entertained Harvard's ten in the pourdown which 
is beginning to be a traditional part of Harvard-Maryland games. 
Not at any time in the game was the Terp lead threatened, and 
they plugged the Crimson goal eleven times, suffering only two 
return counters. Parker Lindsay led the Maryland attack with three 
goals and played a rousing game at defense for much of the time.

Meade breaks up a Mount Washington pass 

He was moved to attack when Hewitt was removed from the game. 
"Poony" Wilson entered in the last quarter, and in his short stay 
scored twice. 

Penn State's Lions formed the opposition for the third collegiate 
onslaught. Playing under the bracing influence of a cool, windy 
day, the Terps organized its hitherto confused attack to vanquish 
the visitors in a rough and tumble fray. What the Lions lacked in 
tactical skill they made up with sheer man-power. However, with 
players such as Meade, Lindsay, Neilson, Hewitt, Willie Bond, and 
Willie Wolfe, the Marylanders were not to be denied. Goalie Hack 
Deeley held the State men to three tallies while his own men ac- 
counted for eleven. 

St. John's highly-touted ten moved into College Park April 23rd 
after they had beaten Mount Washington, vanquishers of the Terps 
earlier in the season. 

With the score deadlocked 2 2 at the end of the midway point, 
the Johnnie's defense seemed to batter back everything the F'aber-

star, the Terps rallied in the final period to pot six goals to the 
Crabtown boys' two. The final whistle found the score 8-4.

COACHES 
Dobson, Head Coach Eppley 



TRACK 

JDUILDING up prestige by sponsoring the 
Fifth Regiment meet, and meeting nationally 
known teams, Maryland thin clads this year 
turned in a creditable record both indoor 
and out. 

Long before Christmas the boards felt the 
bite of spikes. Such earnest effort made 
possible one of the most successful indoor 
seasons. The Madison Square Garden popu- 
lace saw the Black and Gold relay win by 30 
yards. Two weeks later the same group 
flashed in Carolina's "Tin Can" to claim the 
conference championship and break the rec- 
ord previously held by two other Terrapin 
quartets. Following this was the Fifth Regi- 
ment meet in Baltimore, sponsored by the 
University of Maryland. The Governor's 
Mile, the feature race, brought together 
Glenn Cunningham, Archie San Romani, 
Gene Venzke, and Maryland's Mason Chron- 
ister. As might be expected, invincible Glenn 
won, setting a new world's flat track record 
of 4:14. Romani garnered second place and 



with a courageous kick-finish Chronister beat 
Venzke, the world renown "picture runner." 

With the "Ides of March" almost past, 
would-be trackmen flocked to the equipment 
room like birds from the South. As a result 
the varsity's drab gray sweat clothes were 
issued to the latecomers and the regulars 
donned new black and gold livery. 

Other headline events were Coleman 
Headley's 1:56.8 half-mile record. Frank 
Cronin's Conference 440 record of 52 sec- 
onds, Ed Miller's indoor high jump record, 
Franny Kenney's jump of 22 feet 2 '2 inches 
in the broad jump, Jimmy Kehoe's University 
two-mile record of 9:37 and Hermie Evans' 
new low of 25 seconds in the 220-yard low 
hurdles. 

Sorely missing Guckeyson's fifteen points 
in the dual meets, Blair Smith threw the 
spear and Charley Morris heaved the shot 
and twirled the discus to bring in tallies.

Although the tracksters were victorious, 
local track fans saw few of these victories. 
Six of the ten meets were away and several 
new schools were scheduled for the first 
time. These were Michigan State, Rutgers, 
and Army. These teams offered some of the 
stiffest competition of the season. 

Coach Geary Eppley shifted his men 
around considerably and this strategy often 
proved disastrous to the rivals. 

Lettermen lost by graduation are Frank 
Cronin, dashes, guarter, pole vault; Bill 
Thies, dashes, guarter; Logan Schutz, hurdles, 
relay; Coleman Headley, half, mile, relay; 
and Blair Smith, javelin.

TENNIS 

Displaying a battery ol new talent, Coach Les Bopst' s 
varsity tennis team was acclaimed one ol the finest to ever 
represent the University of Maryland. The squad boasted 
such talent as Allie Ritzenberg, former Middle Atlantic 
States junior champion and present holder of the men's 
Public Parks championship of Washington; Nate Askin, at 
one time, number one junior of Maryland; veteran Ted Leh- 
man, of last year's varsity; Jay Phillips, Lawrence Lichliter, 
Mack Dunie, Bob Waters and Harvey Kreuzburg, all players 
of ability. 

By virtue of several weeks' indoor practice in the Coliseum 
and the early opening of the clay courts, the racketmen were 
whipped into good shape for the first few matches. This was 
evidenced by the 9-0 victory over William and Mary in the 
season opener. The 6-3 win over Richmond was encourag- 
ing, but the defeat of Duke by the same score was enough 
proof to show that Bopst' s men were due for an outstanding 
season.

RIFLE 

V^^OACHED by Major Charles Jones, Maryland's Varsity Marksmen came 
through the season in winning style terminating the year with seven wins in 
shoulder-to-shoulder and losing but three out of fifty postal matches. 

The riflemen, by their marksmanship, brought to the University no little 
recognition. The W. R. Hearst trophy was won for the second time, giving 
Maryland a third and two first places in three years of competition. 

In the Third Corps area, a large section of the East, the team won first place 
for the third consecutive year, bringing the cup into permanent possession of 
the University. 

In the national intercollegiate matches the team placed sixth for the second 
year and in the National R.O.T.C. competition placed sixth. In addition, this 
year's team set a new record for the home range with a score of 1400. Such 
shooting of individuals on the team deserves the highest praise. 

Following their contemporaries on the varsity sguad, the Freshman sharp- 
shooters turned in an egually creditable score. Losing by only one point, their 
team placed second in the national intercollegiate matches.

MEN'S INTRAMURALS 

D 



EDICATED to the proposition that all men are not created equal and have different talents, 
the Intramural Athletic Association has endeavored to fill the recreational hours of both star 
athletes and would-be luminaries by providing a varied intramural sports calendar. This wide 
range of contests appealed to aspiring and perspiring athletes to such an extent that the par- 
ticipants often outnumbered the spectators. 




WOMEN'S INTRAMURALS 

OO keen is the interest in sports by co-eds that the Women's Physical Education Department 
and the Women's Athletic Association met the growing demand and sponsored intramural 
athletics. The tournaments offered were received with enthusiasm and thus women's intra- 
murals carried forth the program of developing physical fitness among women students of the 
University. 



WOMEN'S PHYSICAL 
EDUCATION 

LHE slogan for physical education for wo- 
men on the campus might well be "A sport 
for every co-ed." The curriculum provides 
for two years devoted to the following sea- 
sonal activities: Hockey, tennis, soccer, bas- 
ketball, volleyball, rhythms, stunts, tumbling, 
tennis, badminton, baseball, shuffleboard, 
and numerous minor individual sports. 

Sponsoring interclass competitions, the de- 



partment crowned the Sophomores champions 
in both the volleyball and basketball tourney. 

No account of women's activities would be 
complete without mention of the co-ed con- 
tributions to All-University Night. At the an- 
nual festival a review of all co-ed sports was 
presented in panorama with hockey, archery, 
and fencing featured "The New Line" pre- 
sented by co-ed tap dancers added color and 
enjoyment, while a group of dancers follow- 
ing the modern trend were featured in a 
number entitled "Festival Rhythms."

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC 
ASSOCIATION 



Of 



ORGANIZING recreational clubs such as 
the badminton, swimming, hiking, and rid- 
ing clubs, the Women's Athletic Association 
again resumed its most important activity of 
sponsoring extra-curricular co-ed sports. Stu- 
dents majoring in physical education aid in 
the management and functioning of this or- 
ganization by coaching and refereeing. 

The regular program of major and minor 
sports has been followed throughout the year. 
Each major sport was climaxed by the usual 
interclass or intramural tournaments. In the 
minor sports the association provided for in- 
dividual tournaments.

Play days with many of the local colleges 
have comprised one of the most interesting 
phases of the athletic program. The Mary- 
land teams have had an opportunity on these 
days to meet and compete with teams from 
Western Maryland, Wilson Teachers' Col- 
lege, American University, and George 
Washington University. 

During the year many interesting speakers 
were secured to give lectures and demon- 
strations in various sports. Among these 
authorities were Jean Tenney, National Arch- 
ery Champion; Jenney Turnbull, athletic in- 
structor at George Washington University; 
Mrs. Meg O'Donell, golf authority; and Mrs. 
Susie Lukens, hockey veteran. 

The officers for 1937-38 were: Alice Mor- 
gan, president; Sara Case, vice-president; 
Mildred Smith, secretary; Hope Swann, re- 
corder of points. 

These meetings and sports events offered 
further opportunity for growth, recreation 
and enjoyment of a well-rounded life at the 
University of Maryland. 



WOMEN'S RIFLE TEAM 

J.HE Co-ed Rifle Team, in spite of the loss of 
all but two girls from last year, came through 
with 18 victories, 3 ties and 6 losses. By 
means of postal matches, the riflettes com- 
peted with some of the best teams in the 
country. Some of the teams fired against 
were George Washington, Penn State, Uni- 
versity of California, University of Michigan, 
Drexel Institute, Coe College, and North- 
western. 

During the year the girls did some fine 
individual shooting. Vivian Bono placed 
eighth in the Women's Individual Intercol- 
legiate Championship and received the State 
Championship Medal for Maryland. Anita 
Yeager placed fifth and received one of the 
bronze place medals in the same contest. 

Mary Hetta Bohlin of Washington, D.C., 
was captain of the team and Anita Yeager of 
Baltimore was the manager. The team is 
coached by Sargeant George J. Uhrinak.

A HE Interfraternity Council, which is made 
up of two representatives from each Greek 
organization on the hill, functions as a medi- 
um for governing fraternity affairs and for 
promoting harmony among the various broth- 
erhoods. 

The new policy this year of including the 
presidents of fraternities proved an advan- 
tageous move. Speed of legislation was in- 



creased and the council was better informed 
on the sentiments of fraternity men at Mary- 
land. Another alteration in the proceedings 
of the group was the change of election day 
to a date preceding the Interfraternity Ball. 
This enabled the new 'council officers to be 
formally introduced to the Greek student 
body and added a colorful ceremony to the 
dance program.

FRATERNITY LIFE 

o 



NE of the things about fraternity hfe that makes it so intriguing is that one never knows 
just what is going to happen next. Many is the time that a good brother has chmbed a nearby 
tree for his bedclothes, and an honest to goodness fraternity man has yet to see the suit of 




clothes that he could honestly call his own. Yet there lurks somewhere in the hearts of the 
fraternity man a subtle appeal for the enjoyments of Greek life. For fraternity days are active 
ones, regardless of the neighbor's private opinions on the subject. Intramural teams, and the 
battles to the death in the annual ping-pong tournament . . . homecoming competitions and 
the lazy spring days with baseball in the backyard . . . and the bills for broken windows. 
All are a part of campus fraternity life.

XXALF way down fraternity row stands the house of the Phi, 
refuge of a sporting and industrious brotherhood. Commencing 
the year 1937-38, the twenty-eight active brothers of Phi Delta 
Theta gave ample proof that their fraternity was to carry its 
glories and triumphs into the future and maintain its leading 
position on the campus by pledging thirty -one rushees. No small 
amount of its supremacy is due to Dr. Norman Phillips, zoology 
department head, whose wise counsel has been of great benefit. 
Mrs. Richard Moore, diligent chaperon and housemother, de- 
serves thanks for her sincere interest in Phi Delta Theta's welfare. 

"Prexy" Ed Long, 1937-38 mogul, who has led Phi Delta Theta 
through one of its most successful years, exemplifies the true 
spirit of cosmopolitanism which typifies the brotherhood of Phi 
Delta Theta. Industrious Johnny Wolf, "Old Line" business 
manager; "Benedict" Jimmy Lewald, chaplain; Chorister Eric 
Gibbs, titian-haired Caruso, will walk the last long mile this 
June, taking with them a multitude of happy memories of the 
boys they leave behind. 

Returning with their reflections on midnight bull sessions, con- 
genial gatherings around the radio, card tables, and ping-pong 
table will be Lew Tarbett, winged wonder of Phi Delta, relating 
his myriad escapes among the clouds. . . . The slugging Phis, 
Dick Johnson and Bob Lodge, discussing who hit whom, when, 
where, and why. . . . "Rupe" Johnson "big appleing" all over 
the opposition's defense. . . . The three madcap horsemen. 
Rick Sheridan, Charlie Berg, and Brink Hayman, surveying 
their handiwork after transplanting Dreamboy Otten's room into 
the lavatory, brother Often wearily righting their masterpiece 
and returning to his trombone. . . . OUie Tunis keeping the 
Phis in the social running with dances at the house and excur- 
sions to the A. O. Pi lean-to. . . . "Argus" Brown bounding 
around humming "Phi Delt Bungalow." . . . Collegiate publi- 
cations developments annoying Jerry Hardy and Dick Lee, car- 
toonist and fencer extraordinary. . . . Debonair, smiling Woo- 
dell with hand in pocket displaying the pin of the Phi on his 
chest. . . . Mike Birmingham dashing off to see his Southern 
Maryland love. . . . Goller bellowing at his waiters. . . . 
Muncks spending the Phi's money. . . . Fulks watching Muncks 
and gleefully contemplating the time when the fun will be his. 
. . . George Seeley, treasurer, moaning and groaning as he 
also watches Muncks. . . . "Kelley" Shipe about to rule the 
roost. . . . Bubbles (Let's play pitch) Waite ready for anything. 
. . . Jim Kirby waking the crowd after "Peanuts" Long puts 
them to sleep with his "Trip to Syracuse." 

The departing brotherhood will remember these and many 
other memories equally heart warming which have grown out 
of one of the richest of college experiences — fraternity life.

THETA CHI 



Founded at Norwich University in 1856 
Established at the University of Maryland in 1929 

President Benjamin Jewell 

Vice-President William Towson 

Secretary Ralph Ravenburg 

Treasurer Julius Ireland 



o. 



'N Princeton Avenue stands the home of the Theta Chis, a national brotherhood founded 
eighty-one years ago at Norwich College, Vermont. Maryland's Alpha Psi Chapter was 
incepted in 1929, when the national board accepted the petition of Delta Mu, at that time 
a leading Greek local. 

In the house, which is too conveniently located beside the Kappa Kappa Gamma 
abode, reside some twenty members. . . . Prexy Ben Jewell, senior and proud of it. . . . 
Walter Reed, the Bronx sophomore. . . . Elton "Bud" Young, who leads the daydodgers 
of the spasmodically filled parking lot with his erratic driving. . . . Engineer Jack Home 
and his inseparable slide rule. . . . Diminutive Glenn Lewis, with his soy beans and 
Alpha Zeta membership. . . . Wade Porter and his affinity for the Grill waitresses. 

Then there is Ralph Ravenberg, who pushes a mean pen as Theta Chi secretary, and 
his bunkie of four years' standing, Fred Sisler. . . . Bill Towson, house manager and star 
intramural athlete. . . . Bob Baker, editor of "The Diamondback," and O.D.K. member. 
. . . Gordon Dittmar, the only Theta Chi fellowship student . . . and Van Ashmun, 
Junior Class representative to the Men's League. 

Next is daydodging Dick Bamman and "Bucky" Ireland, the Shylock of the club's 
exchequer. . . . Bob Krafft, who alternates from home, Theta Chi, and the A.O. Pi house. 
. . . Carl Molesworth, local Eddie Duchin. . . . Lester Simon, Junior Class Sergeant-at- 
Arms and a coming George Petty (Esq.). . . . Don Strausbaugh, lieutenant of Pershing 
Rifles and "Diamondback" staff personality . . . and Henry "Bud" Wyatt, the Balti- 
more lad. 

That peppy Sophomore crop comes next . . . Bertram "Buck" Gore . . . Lanky Dick 
Horner . . . Photographer Carroll "Mother" Hutton . . . Wailing Jim Kemper and his 
blonde buddie, Staley Sanner . . . Engineer Huyette Oswald . . . Bespectacled Roy 
Reynolds . . . Morgan Tenny, leading Soph reporter of "The Diamondback, " a rifle team 
and Pershing Rifles member. 

Mrs. Nancy L. Smith is the outstanding housemother whose competent maternal touch 
is essential to Theta Chi's brotherhood. These memories and many others about the fellows 
will linger in the minds of the members of Theta Chi long after they leave the Maryland 
campus.

EPSILON GAMMA CHAPTER 



JL HE white house with the green trimmings that 
borders on College Avenue, across from the old post 
office, is the residence of the A.T.O.'s. Surrounded 
by pines and surmounted by the golden maltese cross 
of Alpha Tau Omega, this stately house exudes an 
atmosphere of friendliness and warmth. The house 
is always open to visiting members, friends, and 
strangers; and every occupant, from Mrs. Brehme, the 
ever-watchful housemother, to the greenest pledge, 
strives to make visitors feel at home. The Alpha Taus 
are proud of their cordial relations with the other 
Greeks on the hill, although they do carry on a 
friendly feud with their neighbors farther up the 
avenue. 



Within the house the scene varies constantly. If 
an observer were to enter noiselessly on Tuesday eve- 
ning after meeting, he would very likely find the boys 
engaged in a wide variety of pursuits. In some con- 
venient corner he would notice that perennial four- 
some, Carl Humelsine, Mike Lombardo, Joe Corbin, 
and "Snorty" Holzapfel, engrossed in an excitingly 
unorthodox game of bridge. Naturally, the observer 
would join the interested audience of ping-pong en- 
thusiasts consisting of Floyd Soule, Dick Kern, Welch 
Smith, and Bob Lawder, watching the game going 
strong in the sun parlor, where Harvey Kreuzburg 
and Johnny Smith hold forth in great style . . . and 
Mitchell, Mears, and Martin, the alliterative room- 
mates, ensconced on the sofa, embroiled in another 
one of their interminable arguments which constantly 
disturb the tranquillity of their room. Near the door 




he would see Dick Hutchinson and Bruce Davis try- 
ing to make up their minds whether they ought to go 
home or stay and listen to the new recordings. . . . 
George Lawrence, Bill Brown, and Will Sherwood 
waiting in line at the telephone, in order to explain 
to their eight o'clock dates why they haven't left the 
A.T.O. house by nine-thirty. . . . "Priff" Healey, 
Mike Panciotti, Nico Edmonds, and "Steve" Brode 
fighting for the evening sports section, while Charlie 
Downey, completely disregarding the rest, reads com- 
placently a cattle breeder's manual. ... In another 
corner Proxy Paul Peffer and Bob Benbow who are 
engaged in conversation with Jack Schwarz, that 
effervescent cheer leader, who adds a few spicy tid- 
bits now and then. The sudden crescendo of Charlie 
Kammer is easily heard from the second floor, inter- 
rupted by the patient voice of Mike Herman explain- 
ing for the ninety-ninth time that he is going to study 
Descriptive Geometry, and is not going to the Grill. 

At this juncture, the departing guest closes the door 
and steals away, narrowly missing Joe Parks and Bill 
Rea coming up the walk. Though his stay was brief, 
he will not soon forget the pleasant memory of this 
congenial fraternity household.

Mrs. Mary K. Cassard 
Housemother 



I OT more than a hundred yards from the corner of the Gym- 
Armory stands the palatial domicile of the Kappa Alphas. Visi- 
tors at the home of the wearers of the encircled cross often 
remark upon the harmony and genial brotherhood that exists 
therein. 

A look inside the large chapter room on a cold winter evening 
reveals none other than George Watson, a likely candidate 
for All-American in lacrosse this year, and Parker Lindsay who 
will probably be joining that select group again for the second 
year. ... In one corner Bill Howard and Jack Badenhoop, 
members of K.A.'s stellar touch-football team, reminisce and 
joke of old times. . . . Nearby the R.O.T.C. men, "Moco" 
Reeves, captain; Charles Heaton, lieutenant; and Bill Mullett, 
captain and also president of the Interfraternity Council, match 
wits with Joe Burk, humorist of Kappa Alpha. . . . In the middle 
of the room Jim Heil and Bill Graham enjoy a game of bridge 
with Leo Mueller and the housemother, Mrs. Cassard, who im- 
parts the maternal atmosphere to the happy family. 

Grouped around the warmth of the fireplace, Frank Maddox, 
Vernon Bowen, Frank Dippel and Charlie Seitz discuss their 
future in medicine. . . . Stretched on the floor, "Jake" Mellen, 
Sonny Cotterman and Les Higbee are listening to one of Al 
Schauman's unreasonable stories. . . . Dick O'Neill, house 
manager, sits by the radio deep in thought about recent mid- 
night raids on the icebox. . . . Engineers Bill Booze, Tom Shaf- 
fer and Howard Vernay talk over the modern trend of bridges 
and machinery. . . . John Reckord sits on the couch with Ed 
Daniels, who reveals to him the pros and cons of a military life. 
. . . Joe Mehl, Tommy Capossela, Harry McGinniss, Frank 
Thompson and Al Leaf enter the room and draw cries of "pipe 
down" from the occupants. 

With the winning of the touch-football championship, a most 
successful rush season and other worthwhile achievements, 
Kappa Alpha looks back with enthusiasm upon a banner year 
at the University.

SIGMA NU 



Founded at Virginia Military Institute in 1869 
Established at the University of Maryland in 1918 

President Logan Schutz 

Vice-President Carleton Wahl 

Secretary Perry Hay 



i ROVING a prediction that Sigma Nu would enjoy one of the most successful years in 
its history, a versatile, well-rounded group of Sigma Nus carried their fraternity on to 
new heights. In the fall a large number of Freshmen were pledged, twenty-five enthusias- 
tic yearlings scrawling their names on Snake bids. 

Truest life pictures of Delta Phi Chapter are obtained by reflecting on the idiosyn- 
crasies of the various members. . . . "Gravy" Logan Schutz, President, discussing hurdle 
form with track enthusiasts Hermie Evans and John Beers. . . . "Hairbreadth" Harry Voll- 
mer seeking out jovial Robert Chaney, rotund "Kip" Edwards, and happy-go-lucky Waverly 
Wheeler to pass judgment on the latest haircuts of the "Whiffle" triplets, Charles Barber, 
Dave Leonard, and Jack Brown. 

Chuck Park shouts for a game of pitch and immediately "Slippery" Oden Bowie, 
"Goose" Sonny Hurley, and "Lash" Bud Wahl join as a group. . . . Lusty as a March 
breeze, "Fat Boy" Hack Deeley stalks in and corners pretty boy Bill Kimball and Irish 
Pat Lanigan, forcing them to listen while he expounds about his latest "gal." 

Studious Jack Holbrook is interrupted by the noise which comes from the recreation 
room where "Punchy" Bob Walton and "Cube" Perry Hay engage in one of their famous 
open-hand battles. . . . "Rip" Hewitt endeavors to straighten out "Red" Oscar Nevares, 
while playful Nip Prescott scampers back and forth across the room. . . . Blaringly the 
radio shouts as Eliott Robertson and Henry Johnson debate the pros and cons of attending 
a stag party the coming week-end. 

Viewing the activities of the boys with an attitude of amusement is Henry Walls, 
faculty advisor extraordinary, who has been extremely helpful throughout the entire year. 

Many Sigma Nus will return again next year, but Seniors as they go take with them 
many happy memories which have come from fellowship in Sigma Nu.

ETA CHAPTER 



OOME distance off the campus proper, shaded by 
the large elms which line Princeton Avenue, is the 
Phi Sigma Kappa House. Founded at Maryland in 
May, 1923, from the secret order of Skull and Coffin, 
Eta Chapter is the fifth oldest fraternity in College 
Park. 

Entering through the large door of the house, one 
may see the Phi Sigs finishing an evening meal. 
Ralph Meng, vice-president, is still engrossed in the 
last pork chop, being pressed hard for epicurean 
honors by Treasurer Joe Henderson. As the brothers 
file out of the dining room across the hall and into 
the living room, it is possible to get a better view of 
them as they really are. . . . "Doc" Broadwater is 
operating the recording machine, while Bill Coster 
sits by seemingly bored at the semi-classical melo- 
dies. . . . Vic Raphel, head of the local Newman 
Club, stretches out on one of the numerous couches 
and yawns. 

Suddenly the piano in the hall begins to sound as 
Bob Bradley's flying fingers pound out the latest hit 
tunes, and then guickly change to one of Bach's com- 
positions. . . . Over in a corner Elgin Scott is talk- 
ing over the co-ed situation with Pete Houck, stalwart 
house manager. . . . Charlie Parvis, football center, 
literally breezes in and begins to give all the low 
down on the next game, as Johnny Lane's mind pro- 
jects to spring lacrosse practice.

Sitting in another corner of the living room is Clair 
DeVore, expounding the cause of organized labor to 
Forrest King, who listens with an expression of rapt 
boredom. . . . Another couch is occupied by the 
"Dictator" Jamie Mc Williams, who, with a worried 
expression, is earnestly telling a rushee of the bene- 
fits to be derived from fraternities in general, and Phi 
Sig in particular. 

The front door bursts open and in marches the 
military trio. Major Jones, Pete Jones, and Bob Jones. 
. . . Bill West and Harry Hambleton engage in a 
lively discussion on the possibilities of saving gas 
and oil on their daily trips from Washington, and re- 
turn. . . . Harry and Walter Miller talk over new 
music for the band as John Freudenberger tears his 
hair seeking interesting notes to send into "The 
Diamondback." 

These are the Phi Sigs — a closely knit group of fel- 
lows who know how to enjoy themselves, and to work 
for their fraternity as well.

Miss Lula Darby 
Housemother 



Loused a stone's throw from the men's dormitories, in what 
is probably the most convenient fraternity location in College 
Park, are the secluded Delta Sigs. Enjoying all the privacy of 
light housekeeping off the Maine coast, the boys are "far from 
the madding crowd" down the hill. Long after most other 
fraters have begun their weary trudge to those awful eight- 
twenties, the Delta Sigs are making their first attempts to crawl 
out of bed. 

On Tuesday night there is usually a good "bull session" in 
progress, when pledges and actives get together for their meet- 
ings. In one corner of the library, talking football to "Jumbo" 
Jim Meade, is star gridder Nick Budkoff. . . . Near them, former 
high school grid enemies, Willie Wolfe and the two DeArmeys, 
recall to each other their days of high school rivalry. ... In 
the hall, talking with "Chub" Zalesak and Howard Tippet, the 
good alumnae brothers, are President Charley MacDonald, 
Pledge Master John Parks, and Vice-President "Little" Franny 
Zalesak. . . . Sprawled out on a couch are the militarists of the 
house, soldierly Colonel Ben McClesky, discussing the day's 
drill with Major Bruce McFadden and Captain Ralph Keller. 

A trip upstairs reveals honor student Tom Hall tutoring a pro- 
bationary pledge and across the hall in their room Fencing 
Coach Bob Neiman and his roommate, Warrington Smith, figure 
out with teammate Leonard Meakin just how they are going to 
stab their way to the Southern Conference championship. . . . 
Next door Southern Maryland's Tom Carrico and his chemistry 
majoring roommate, Jim Owens, study. 

In the chapter room "Hill Boy" John Epperson and guiet but 
mighty active Tommy Brookes nimbly swing paddles in a game 
of ping-pong as bandsmen Ralph Chilcoat and Fred Perkins, 
House Manager Bredekamp, and the pugilistic Cuban, Jose 
Peralta, look on. Trying to read the "Home Bugle" amidst the 
confusion is Cumberland's pride, "Jake the Snake" Stegmaier. 

With ever-present bull sessions, accounting problems that in- 
volved all the business ad students of the house, physical chem- 
istry quizzes that kept the Pre-Meds awake all night, with all the 
give and take of fraternity life, the Delta Sigs find that they have 
memories to cherish long after college days are over.

Established at the University of Maryland in 1916 

President Wilmer W. Steiner 

Vice-President F. Deen Evans 

Secretary George D. Allen 

Treasurer Warren A. Hughes 



w, 



HILE the members of Sigma Phi Sigma are holding a special meeting to consider the 
proposed plans to commit arson on their property, one guietly slips away to give the side- 
lights on the rest as they are gathered. 

Big Bill Steiner, who hopes to pot plants for a living, is picking blond hairs from his 
best suit. . . . Fred Johnston, also an agrarian, proudly displays his hunting license which 
permitted him to bag game to the east of the club's estate. . . . John Guill, of the Guills 
of Takoma Park, sits silently by and plans new Inricks for the initiation in the spring. . . . 
Deen Evans, who wears an "M" for shooting bull's-eyes, has two objectives at this point: 
his girl in Iowa, and a career in the business world. . . . Warren Hughes, who punches 
tickets at Rossbourg dances, has two interests also: a girl who doesn't live in Iowa, and 
a business career. 

The Junior (socially) rostrum includes Warren Steiner, who is majoring in Kappa and 
ties on gloves in the square circle at the Coliseum. . . . Bob Pailthorp will probably take 
the Home Economics course next year to prepare himself for the duties of house manager — 
this will leave him with only the Law and Medicine Colleges to try. . . . Bob Kinney is 
still croaking his bullfrog bass in the Men's Chorus. . . . George Allen, of the Aliens of 
Takoma Park, smokes a pipe, drives a Ford, and takes school seriously. . . . John Bow- 
man is studying law and understudying the great Tschaikowsky. . . . Bond Weber can 
eat more than anyone in the house and walks to the Arts and Sciences Building in ten 
minutes flat. . . . Ewing Gupton, of the recent pledge class, is ambitious for a banking 
career. . . . Bert Hall is the shining soldier-boy. 

In the Class of '40 come the Coleman boys. . . . Al, the good-looking lad, is the best 
ham-actor in the organization — the vegetable bills have been cut to a minimum as a result 
of Al's efforts. . . . Tom, the brawny lad, is the punchy pugilist and acts as bouncer at 
all social functions. . . . Bob Wilson is the ambassador of goodwill to the "3-D" camp. 
. . . Bill Weyrich, the boy who tore up a twelve-inch tree in his freshman year, is looking 
for bigger things in '38. . . . Doug Steinberg, the exponent of the "Big Apple," is the 
budding journalist. . . . Jimmy Sloan, the fraternity's gift to politics, is timing his gradu- 
ation to meet prosperity at the corner. . . . Harold Axtell expects to relieve human suf- 
fering by extracting bigger and better molars. 

Such is the nature of the Sigma Phi Sigma brotherhood. A conglomeration of talents 
it is true, but the boys from down by the tracks blend into perfect harmony, even to their 
stray cat, "Kappa."

ALPHA THETA CHAPTER 



i AYING more than lip-service to the principles of 
the fraternity of their choice, some thirty-four wearers 
of the Sickle and Sheaf have combined their interests 
to keep high the standards of Alpha Gamma Rho. A 
large red brick dwelling which stands deep in College 
Park territory symbolizes the nucleus of Alpha Theta, 
the agricultural fraternity. 

A glimpse through the interior might reveal a few 
characteristic facts about each of the members. On 
the first floor is pipe-smoking Pete DeCecco looking 
quite contented. . . . Busily mapping out a program 
for the social season is Tom Gordon, while roommate 
Abe Gottwals racks his brain in an effort to please the 
majority by setting before them articles of gastro- 
nomical delight. . . . Preparing to visit the Tri-Delt 
House, Clay Shaw dresses meticulously in the next 
room, as Bill Seabold sits studying, studying, and 
studying — the picture on his bureau. . . . Joe Mer- 
ritt grimaces and turns again to his books. 

Pounding heavily up the stairs, Al Baker, arrayed 
in his band uniform, collides with Clarence Eck, who 
is coming out of the showers, shaving with one hand 
and combing his hair with the other, hurriedly pre- 
paring for a visit to Margaret Brent. . . . That noise 
in Room One is a mixture of Stup singing and Wheeler 
pleading with Bailey to tell him who defaced his 
girl's picture. . . . Vernon Foster just winks and 
grins. . . . Heubeck, dressed in old clothes and car- 
rying a football, rushes out of Room Two. . . . With 
in, Scherer and Hoshall are lazily fighting it out. . . . 
"Twizzle" Bosley just says, "Oh, boy!" 




A burst of music from Room Three indicates that 
"Li'l" Carl Behm, Ralphie-boy Clark, and Smitty are 
truckin' out their number three stomp, capably engi- 
neered by Clint Brookhart. . . . Genial Noble Ruler 
Kuhn presides in Room Four — quite naturally, then, 
George Remsberg, Cy Wintermoyer, and Louie Ahalt 
are well-behaved young gentlemen. . . . Sax swing- 
ster Will Cawley practices in Room Five, much to the 
discomfiture of Galbreath and Brosius. . . . The in- 
fectious laughter of Bill Jarrell may be heard above 
the din. . . . Looking like "Men in White," Norbie 
Hite and Chandler Astle leave Room Six, headed in 
a general direction for the Dairy. . . . Tearfully, 
Wayne Fitzwater bids them farewell. 

Carroll Forsyth enters the front door with Frank 
McFarland and Frank Taylor and rallies the boys 
round the piano to sing some of the fraternity pep 
songs. . . . And, as their voices blend harmoni- 
ously, we depart — reluctantly, with inspiring words 
ringing in our ears: 

"Hail to Alpha Gamma Rho, finest in the land. 
Hail her colors green and gold, all for you we 
stand. ..."

^DEING a part of one of the largest and most progressive na- 
tional fraternities in the country. Lambda Chi Alpha takes con- 
siderable satisfaction in the fact that a member can go from 
coast to coast, sleeping each night in one of its affiliated frater- 
nity houses. 

Taking an actual and active interest in the Epsilon Pi Chapter, 
faculty advisors Professor George D. Quigley of the Poultry 
Division of the College of Agriculture and Dr. John E. Jacobi of 
the Sociology Department of the College of Arts and Sciences, 
have been helpful throughout the year in the fields of scholar- 
ship, finances, and other phases of the fraternity's life. 

Priding itself on its versatility. Lambda Chi Alpha is not com- 
posed primarily of athletes nor campus leaders, but of ordinary 
students, who have come to the University for an education, not 
a reputation. Encouraging extra-curricular activities, however, 
as long as they do not interfere with studies. Lambda Chi Alpha 
has members who are prominent in publications, sports, and 
dramatics. Drawing its members from no one branch of the Uni- 
versity, the membership is almost egually distributed in the de- 
partments of chemistry, science, arts, agriculture, and engineer- 
ing. The obvious democratic aspect of the fraternity gives a base 
around which is easily moulded a web of friendship that is felt 
and appreciated by every member. 

In future years when memory functions, there will be recalled 
the vagaries of the brothers: Diligent Dick Carroll winning his 
"A." . . . "Clutzie" Close, demon radio maniac. . . . Chopin 
Chopping Art Stillings brushing a deft hand over keys to the 
deaf ear of Thespian Bill Esmond, who strikes dramatic poses to 
the slight interest and intense amusement of "Casanova" Glenn 
Ermold and "Don Juan" Marty Muma as they pause a moment 
en route dateward. . . . "Wild Bill" Herbert croaks a current 
hit tune as "Hit the Books" Nelson grumbles over the aspect of 
coming examinations. . . . Over a battered card table flows an 
incessant stream of sarcasm as the Corridon brothers do mortal 
combat at double solitaire. . . . Don "Deadeye Dick" Damuth 
argumentatively compares his arsenal with that of "Soldier" 
Nelson Jones, while "Prexy" Gifford views the whirling scene 
with feigned disgust.

Established at the University of Maryland in 1926 

President Maurice Forman 

Vice-President Martin K. Stein 

Secretary Lawrence Auerbach 

Treasurer Harold Sachs 



0^ 



'NE decade and three years ago, our alumni brought forth a new fraternity, dedicated 
to the proposition that all college men can get excellent grades and enjoy the pleasures 
of superlative social affairs. 

The Tau Epsilon Phi House has withstood rain, snow, wind, flood, and the antics of 
lusty brethren for ten years. At the present time, externally as well as internally, the Tep 
house, synonymous to Tep men and the Tep name, seems in best of health with indications 
of a long-lasting permanence. 

This permanence not only manifests itself in the aforementioned things but also in 
Happy Rosen's never-ceasing smile . . . Roomy Mitch Sokal's sweet monotone quoting 
Tennyson, much to the resentment of student Larry Auerbach, just across the hall. . . . 
Li'l Donny Bierer, whose hobby is raising his pet bull, Oscar, bemoaning the fact that 
some day roommate Al Salganik's father will package him. The other Al-Goldberg-alias 
SOX one-two — debating with Intercollegiate Champ Benny Alperstein on just what's 
what in the fight racket. . . . Slide-rule majors Irving "Petty" Phillips, Irving Yank 
Etkind, Eli four-point Elvove, and Micky four-basket Mulitz, constructing dream castles 
over their physics books, while Gabby Lehman clocks the nightmares which play havoc 
with his dreams. . . . Brother Sachs trying to edge onto the four-seater couch between 
pledges Norm Meyerson and Box Abramson, while Butch Peregoff disputes the bridge 
ability of his partner and at the same time forgets to follow suit. Yock Yochelson is often 
seen confiding in Political Science Atkins — apparently it is the campus or the national 
political situation Yock is interested in, or maybe it is just a common love interest. Any 
morning those two demons of speed. President Maurice Zinny Forman and Vice-President 
Kirk Ham-let Stein, can be seen tearing their way up to the Arts and Sciences Building just 
in time to fall into their ten-twenties. 

Just a big, swell, happy family mothered by the grandest mother ever — Mrs. Jean Hart.

President Charles Binswanger 

Secretary Ralph J. Tyser 

Treasurer Oscar Davidson 



Ai 



.LTHOUGH Sigma Alpha Mu has been first in scholarship among the frater- 
nities on the campus, and fourth among its thirty-five national chapters for the 
past two years, the atmosphere within the chapter house is hardly the scholarly 
one that might be expected. 

At almost any time of the day, the house "swing cats" may be found holding 
forth on one of their "jam sessions." . . . Prior Charlie Binswanger and Mur- 
ray Valenstein hold out for Kemp's sweet music, while "Snuffy" Goldstein and 
Bobby Ashman are advocates of pure "jam." . . . Affaires d' amour occupy the 
time of the house Casanovas, Bob Herman and Frank Borenstein. . . . Upstairs 
the future transport magnate, Oscar Davidson, dreams of his beloved trucks and 
trailers. . . . On the third floor the quiet atmosphere is saturated with 3.5 aver- 
ages. . . . I-fere are Leo Siegel, "Rags" Rogoff, and "Bull" Tyser burning the 
proverbial midnight oil. . . . Now and then the tranquillity is broken by the 
mountaineer, "Zeke" Abrams, who is practicing with his foil to settle once and 
for all that feud way back in West Virginia. 

The spirit of college does not end for the Sigma Alpha Mus at graduation, 
for they have created one of Maryland's strongest alumni groups, thus keeping 
forever alive their cherished university days.

President Bernard Yockelson 

Vice-President Morton Bloom 

Secretary Burton D. Borden 

Treasurer David Silverstein 



I 



N the calm and secluded surroundings of Crisp's Gardens 
reside the members of Epsilon Chapter of Phi Alpha Fraternity. 

Let us open the portals of their house and gaze inside. There 
is the honorable president, Bernard Yockelson, talking as usual. 
. . . Standing around, in open-mouthed wonder, are those ven- 
erable seniors, Irvin Schreiber and Paul Goldberg — they wonder 
when he is going to stop. ... In the corner Burton D. Borden 
and George Flax are arguing over an accounting problem. Those 
two are like Damon and Pythias, but even the best of friends 
argue. . . . Alvin Peck, first lieutenant in advanced R.O.T.C., 
is telling that extreme pacifist and musician, George Waingold, 
that he will have to go to war whether he likes it or not. . . . 
Of course, George objects, and calls Harold Hirsh over for sup- 
port. . . . Harold refuses to become involved in such a com- 
plex question. . . . Ah, there are the brilliant pre-dental stu- 
dents Stanley dayman and Fulton Kraft. . . . They are trying 
to study organic chemistry — we wonder why. . . . What is all 
that noise in the dining room? David Silverstein, treasurer, is 
trying to collect some money from Morton Bloom. Morton 
refuses, saying that he is going to New York this week-end to 
see his girl friend. 

We leave now, but we shall always remember this group of 
men who truly illustrate fraternalism and that quality which 
accompanies it, friendship.

N a modest gray stucco house down on Calvert Road is the abode of the 
brotherhood of Alpha Epsilon. Let us stop in some evening and meet a few of 
the brothers. 

Entering through the portals we are first met by "King" Shmuner with a 
ball and chain attached to his fraternity pin. ... In the living room are the 
three stooges, Stuart Levine, Macy Esterson, and Armand Terl, who are holding 
a bull session, and despite the dense cloud of smoke, it is apparent that Terl 
has the upper hand as usual. . . . Prexy of the dining room, Milt Singer, is still 
at the table, while roommate "Chubsy" Dillon reminisces about their days at a 
C.M.T.C. camp. . . . Upstairs is "Mamma duck" Ear! Albert, A.E.'s one-man 
gang, tucking in "Sleepy" Mendelson, star fencer. ... In a corner room is 
chemist Smoothy Aarons, snagging Dr. Drake's carbon atoms from mid-air. . . . 
"Connie" Schwartz dashes madly down the hall to chisel a stamp so he can 
mail his periodic manuscript to the pretty brunette at Brooklyn College. . . . 
Kid Kassel is taking pictures of Morty Cohen, the laziest man in the house. . . . 
"Li'l" Laden, the math instructor, is swimming through a flood of figures. . . . 
With a tinkle of glass, the ball with which Josh Leise and Hazatsky have been 
playing crashes through a window. 

Concluding our visit to Alpha Epsilon, we jump into "Actionback II," the 
fraternity car, and Jerry, the cook, waves a friendly farewell as we roll up the 
road to the campus.

i HE Pan-Hellenic Council sets as its objective the establishment of harmony 
among women's fraternities on the campus and acts as an aid to improve any 
other conditions which might come under its jurisdiction. It is responsible for 
rushing regulations among sororities and cooperates with the college adminis- 
tration in upholding high scholastic standards. 

At the beginning of rush season, the Pan-Hellenic Council sponsored teas 
at the various houses, promoting better acguaintance between sorority and non 
sorority women, and in April held a progressive dinner, at which time each 
sorority contributed a course of the meal. A dance followed the dinner.

SORORITY LIFE 

Fun, work, mischief, and grief all go to make up life in a sorority house. It may seem a 
hectic one while being lived but it makes pleasant memories for those who pass through the 
portals of any Greek home. Teas, formal dinners, lectures, dances, and dates call for great 




activity on the part of sorority girls and studying other times crowds their minutes to the utmost. 
In the evenings there is always time, however, for girls to amble from room to room 
discussing coiffures, latest styles, eats, and boys. Then late at night they make ready for sleep 
only to find "pie beds" made by some loving sister. Regardless of such frivolities, the experi- 
ence of being with sorority sisters makes a. girl better developed socially and intellectually.

o- 



'N November 29th members of Kappa Kappa Gamma realized a long-sought objective 
when they moved into their new house. After a period of disorganized daydodging, it was 
with great satisfaction that the Kappas settled into a scholastic routine and were able once 
again to enjoy life in a sorority house. 

Bess Patterson starts off a typical day in the new home by climbing down the ladder 
of her double-decker to wake up her bunkies for their eight-twenties. . . . Elsie and Ethel, 
who are fixtures in the Kappa kitchen, have already started another day of perpetual motion. 

Breakfast is finished, the morning slips by and' it is time for lunch. At one-twenty Peggy 
Griffin, Roberta Collins, and Laura Manning rush up the hill for a sleepy after-lunch class 
... In the afternoon Lucia Spehnkouch and Charlotte Dorsey study in the library, while 
Margaret Jack and Kay Davis keep pace with their social life. Mary Louise Brinckerhoff 
spends endless hours educating pledges. . . . Margaret MacDonald, Carolyn Clugston, 
and Betty Barker clip sundry bits from the sports pages. 

The five-thirty bell rings for dinner and Mrs. Driver, housemother, leads the way into 
the dining room, where the girls gather for their one meal together. . . . Jean Dulin and 
Nora Huber lead songs between courses. . . . Lois Kuhn asks for salt and "Peffer." . . . 
Lydia Evans and Frances Hunter keep table conversation alive with running commentaries 
of a satirical nature. . . . After dinner Mary Beggs hurries to get dressed by seven o'clock. 
Betty Hottel and Elinor Broughton dash in for a few bits of gossip. . . . Marty Heaps con- 
centrates her efforts on "The Diamondback," while Jane Wilson worries about Kappa's 
correspondence. . . . Pat Paterson and Ruth Lowry find a moment from their work on the 
Women's League to entertain the Kappas with tales of dormitory life. Mary Krauss ham- 
mers busily in her capacity as house manager. 

At ten-thirty comes the part of the day that is the most fun in the Kappa House — a 
pajama party in the kitchen. . . . Bernice Aring, house president, checks with Mrs. Driver 
to see that everyone has signed in and the doors are locked. . . . Dotty- Wailes, Helen 
Rodgers, Tempe Curry, Virginia Wood, and Ruthie Richmond are in a bull session on the 
third floor. . . . Gayle Davis and Martha Gay, transfers, join in as they become more and 
more a part of Gamma Psi. . . Kitty Wolfe and Alice Lang, ready for bed, enter the 
session with their little owl light. . . . Ann Carver, always the last one up, turns out the 
lights in the upstairs hall and enters the cold darkness of the dormitory. Quiet reigns in 
the Kappa House.

ALPHA PI CHAPTER 

XTS doors guarded by the Stars and Crescent insig- 
nia, the newly-erected Georgian home of Delta Delta 
Delta stands on College Avenue, the pseudo-frater- 
nity row of the University. Affiliated with one of the 
strongest national groups in the country. Alpha Pi 
Chapter has established an enviable record in the 
four active years of its existence on the campus. 
Aided by Mrs. Claribel Welsh, professor in the Col- 
lege of Home Economics, and scholarship advisor to 
the chapter, the sorority has always been among the 
first in the University's scholastic rating. Proud of the 
advancement of their group, the Tri-Delts, whose in- 
terests are as numerous as the states from which they 
come, are leaders not only in curricular but also in 
extra-curricular activities. 

In the congenial atmosphere of the attractively fur- 
nished house, the ""sisters" share study hours, bridge 
games, and social amnesties with their southern 
housemother, Mrs. Franklin. Ever present at all func- 
tions is ruddy-coated and much beloved '"Winkie," 
cocker spaniel mascot of the group. 

Remember the members of '38? . . . Remember 
President Arlene McLaughlin and her Irish wit. . . . 
Heated discussions on dramatics by Thespians Lois 
Ernest, Judy Greenwood, and Sugar Langford. . . . 
Busy Mildred Hearn, dashing from debates to S.G.A. 
meetings. . . . The Haynes twins and their southern 
drawls on the basketball court. . . . Blonde Mary

. . . Dignified Dot Huff and her army connections 

Harriet Cain and her never-ending supply of apples 

Remember social chairman Ruth Knight, planning

Club. . . . Anne Beal, behaving in true ""Iggy" man- 




ner. . . . Grace Lovell, composing on the baby 
grand. . . . Vice-President Nancy Anders, always on 
her way to pledge meetings. . . . Ernestine Bowyer, 
complaining about all those heavy English books. . . . 
Effervescent Pat Schutz, planning for the next Navy 
hop. . . . Peggy Maslin, trying to meet "'The Dia- 
mondback" deadlines. . . . Dotty Dennis and Mary 
Ellen Pyle on their continual search for a bridge four- 
some. . . . Well-dressed Jean Hartig and that closet

Birthday parties with favors in the cake, the popular 
sun roof made for basking in spring, the after-dark 
walk to the post office, late discussions on the third 
floor with the added treat of cokes and cheese crack- 
ers — all these, seeming trivial, add to studies and

Established at the University of Maryland in 1934 



President Margaret Swanson 

Vice-President Dorothy Wall 

Treasurer Marguerite Jefferson 

Secretary Ellen Talcott 



IT ERSONIFYING the spirit of real Southern hospitality which 
pervades the chapter house of Alpha Xi Delta is the gracious 
housemother, Mrs. Thomas Jefferson Randolph, IV. Bidding us 
enter, she introduces us to the girls awaiting "meeting time." 

Arguing among themselves are the ardent bridge fans, Kitty 
Adkins, Mary Krumpach, Ruth Shamberger, and Janet Werner. 
. . . Quietly "kibitzing" are Audrey Jones and Sue Stevens. . . . 
Nearby, presiding over the house bills, is tiny Jeff Jefferson, 
treasurer. 

Laughing Lois McComas embarrasses sensitive Libby Smith 
by telling tales out of school. . . . On being forgiven, she leads 
the way to the piano. . . . Mistress-of-ceremonies Lois Teal 
organizes a "sing," aided by talented Eileen Neumann, Barbara 
Lewis, and Kitty Aiello. . . . Everyone joins on the choruses. 

One long and three short knocks at the door marks the exit 
of Dot Wall. Leaving at the same time in order to keep up that 
enviable average of hers is Nell Talcott. Suave Doris DeAlba 
and redhead Betty McCormac are not far behind. 

President Margaret Swanson proudly shows blue-prints of the 
new chapter house which is under construction on a nearby lot. 
Her enthusiasm is so contagious that we find ourselves longing 
to be able to share this college home with the girls who wear 
the Golden Quill.

.IGH on the "hill," overlooking the University's colonial campus, rambles historic old 
Gerneaux Hall, home of Kappa Delta Sorority. "Gay old time" symbolizes these co-eds, 
yet they manage to stay one of the very highest in scholarship rating. 

Eight-nineteen a.m. finds the sorority dashing away in sleepy-eyed little groups to 
make eight-twenty classes. . . . Potential home-makers Helen Kaylor, Kack Bohman, Jo 
Good, Josephine Allen trip down the hill to the University's domestic center, the Home 
Economics Building, where they learn to cook, sew, and spin. . . . Music maestro of 
sorority ceremonies is brunette Flo Small; spends her spare time at the piano, surrounded 
by singing sisters Esther Gross, Isabel Hamilton, Betty Shaffer — favorite songs: "Basin 
Street," "Miss Otis." . . . Solitaire fiends of the chapter are golden-haired Adria Smith, 
petite Mary Lee Ross, and Perky Holt; they do their daily dozen with cards. . . . Honorary 
society magnate is Ida Fisher, laden with the duties of Omicron Nu and Mortar Board. . . . 
Most often on the telephone- -Beauteous Mary Speake; married Vera Walker Hutton; 
blonde, blue-eyed Mary Dow. 

Patient Housemother Mrs. Washburn clangs the lunch gong; chattering mob of sisters 
gather at the long table; wangle over the day's trivia — dresses, quizzes, demented pro- 
fessors. 

Afternoon means gossip sessions in Georgia Blalock's room; long, involved sessions, 
with Margaret Crisp, Ruth Koenig, violinist Doris DuShane, office-holding Jane Kephart, 
Doris Dunnington, Jane Hilton, Evelyn Sullivan. . . . Radios break up annoying calm. . . . 
Over theirs, shout sleek Frances Wolf and her roommate, style-conscious Evelyn lager. 
. . . Editor Chris Kempton finds a corner to huddle among her "Old Line" proofs. . . . 
Music-mad Elaine Danforth "trucks" away spare hours, with Judy King at the piano. . . . 
Out meeting dates are faithful Ginny Faul and Ginger Long. . . . Studious members 
Peggy Thomas, Sara Stoddard, Marie Robinette, find quieter rooms — typical rooms in a 
sorority house, with pictures of old loves and new, staring with photographic handsomeness 
from frames on bureaus. 

At twilight the rush starts to the heart of the University the Grill. . . . And night 
is typified with dates standing patiently, hatless, in the hall for the long wait. 

Then one and two o'clock; heavy-eyed girls in hair-curlers, trailing in kimonos from 
room to room, starting more sessions. There is fragrance of late-hour coffee being made in 
the kitchen, and dark quiet, at long last, with only the drip of a faucet somewhere. 

Every year ambitious Kappa Deltas put on a Revue, which runs two nights; consists 
sometimes of a Wild West Show; often a melodrama; sometimes just vaudeville. Then the 
sorority, en masse, learns the thrill of the works of back stage; of painting, prompting, 
propping, the shouting out of lines to the University's wild and woolly audience. 

Classes are punctuation marks to a gay life of house dances, overnight parties, teas, 
banquets, and hi-de-ho.

PI DELTA CHAPTER 

J_yOMINATING the fraternity house group stands 
the massive colonial home of A.O. Pi, its huge white 
pillars personifying the hospitality characteristic of 
its members. Bound together under the emblem of 
ruby and pearls, they continue to uphold the repu- 
tation of leadership for which A.O. Pi is noted. 

Quick impressions: Trousseau-planning Muriel 
James, tactfully and efficiently administering her of- 
fice of president. . . . Evelyn Byrd, holding the dis- 
tinction of combining a 3.5 average with a perfect 
sense of humor. . . . Untiring social chairman Sophie 
Hoenes, resting before the fire for a chummy moment 
with "Buddy," unfailing watchdog. . . . Campus 
leader Dot Hobbs, training twenty-nine enthusiastic 
new pledges. . . . Eloise Dahn and Eleanor Quirk, 
matching wits. . . . Smiling Tillie Boose, keeping 
herself busy with club and committee meetings. . . . 
Vivacious Freddie Waldman, dividing her time be- 
tween Junior Class reports and accounting home- 
work. . . . Daydodgers Mary Helen Cook, Lucille 
Leighty, and Bea Fennel, dashing in frequently for a 
bit of campus news. 

Jerry Jett, model sophisticate and K.A. sweetheart. 
. . . Louise Tucker, conscientious house manager. 
. . . Edythe Ray Sparling, versatile in exhibiting the 
typical co-ed wardrobe. . . . K.A. pin bearing Grace 
Robinson, bull session expert. . . . Helen Piatt 
blessed with a perfect disposition and domestic incli- 
nations. . . . Audrey Bosley, whose harmonic piano 
arrangements have given zest to many a dull evening. 




Prom leader Sally Vaiden, resting between so- 
journs to the Phi Delt house. . . . Ruth Reville, mak- 
ing treasury reports during dummy hands and late 
leaves. . . . Kay Short, finding little difficulty re- 
peating her award of "best pledge" in her member- 
ship. . . . Elaine McClayton, dashing from books to 
mailbox to telephone booth. . . . Mary Jane Hoff- 
man, combining beauty and brains. . . . Alma Mil- 
ler, mixing her artistic ability with genetic and bac- 
teriology problems. . . . Bridge fiend Betty Law, 
smiling at every campus social function. . . . Doris 
Harlan, proving athletes can sing. . . . Dot Rice, 
eating, sleeping, dating. . . . "Happy" Gladys Per- 
son, exemplifying New York style and dance steps. 
. . . Volatile Kitty Pollard, admirably combining 
scholastic efforts and social adaptability. . . . Happy 
memories of coffee after dinner with much-loved Mrs. 
Cawood, the grandest of housemothers. 

Strong, cherished friendships and ideals have been 
formed by such intimacies as these. In the years to 
come happiness and A.O. Pi will be synonymous in 
college memories.

JLiIVE alone and like it" has recently been a popular slogan. 
But the Phi Sig girls, who this year for the first time share a 
sorority house, find that it is much more fun to live together. 
United by the strong ties of friendship and loyalty, they have 
shared their fortunes in a cozy home. 

At the helm is Faye Snyder, helpful, diminutive Archon, who 
has guided the sorority in reaching high standards in every 
endeavor. . . . Gertrude Cohen, an ace performer at social 
functions, has spread geniality wherever it was needed. . . . 
Bernice Grodjesk, outstanding for her fine scholastic attain- 
ments, is appreciated just as much for her interest in the little 
home. 

Peals of laughter that resound throughout the house morning, 
noon, or night, are unmistakably those of Lynn Kaufman and 
Harriett Levin, without whose gay spirits and "Joie de vivre" 
life in Phi Sigma Sigma would not be complete. ... To Bunny 
Molofsky is extended gratefulness for coiffure innovations and 
opinions on what the well-dressed college girl should wear. . . . 
Bernice Jacobs, the young sophisticate, has contributed a great 
deal to the harmonious relationships in the new house. 

Sheba Potts is usually discussing "Canterbury Tales" or the 
skillful use of grease paint, but it is still grand to have her 
around. . . . Ethel Levine, the mortgage and ipso facto gal, is 
an interesting member of the group. . . . Ruth Rubin and Shir- 
ley Biskin must be thanked for their rare interpretations of the 
terpsichoreanart a la "Lindy Hop" and "Shag." . . . Ann Rosin 
and Beverly Oppenheimer have given to the sorority their most 
famous deductions on the much-discussed subject of love. . . . 
Last, but by no means least, Lillian Katz, authority on Shakes- 
peare and a perfectly grand girl, has added lots of zest to the 
many enjoyable fireside chats. 

Phi Sigs will always keep fresh in their memories a picture of 
the activities in their first sorority house, where they lived, 
worked, and shared life together.

' NDER the stately and protective roof of Dormitory 
B lives a group of girls, members of Alpha Sigma. 
Although they are scattered throughout the building, 
the bond of friendship which exists among them over- 
comes the distances. 

Among the Alpha Sigmas, Betty Bloom will always 
be remembered advocating Sun-Kissed oranges 
mixed with her constant mumblings of chemistry 
formulas. . . . Eleanor Snyder, repeating "Only four 
more days until Friday." . . . Sylvia Waldman, rush- 
ing off to play rehearsals. . . . Irene Checket, moni- 
tor of the third floor, uttering the eternal cry, "Quiet 



hour." . . . Elaine Michelson, practising arias for 
the next choral club rehearsal, while Sara Forman, 
Sylvia Handler, Ruthie Greengold, and Helen Gold- 
berg, the quartet, rehearse to entertain at the next 
house meeting. Two of the more studious members 
often seen at their work are Janet Steinberger, busily 
reading history, and Chick Cohen, taking blood 
counts for Hematology class. 

When the Alpha Sigmas go 6ut into the world with 
other people, memories of fine friendships made in 
their sorority will not easily be forgotten.

N the south winq of Dormitory B reside the Alpha Deltas, members of the newest 
local sorority on the campus. Alpha Delta is sponsored by Alpha Delta Pi, a large 
national sorority. 

Living conveniently together, as they do, one might visit the girls and meet 
Carolyn Webster, chief executive, vfho never gets to breakfast on time in spite 
of the efforts of Marian Mayes, Alpha Delta's human alarm clock. . . . Virginia 
Beall, with her theory "life is so problematical," philosophizing to Cecelia Gold- 
smith, who is known to take unusual interest in domestic art. . . . Ruth Almony 
and Marie Hardesty dreaming of their respective futures, nursing and fashion 
designing. 

Millie Smith, ace guard of basketball and guiet hour, is attempting to keep 
order, as Inez Nevy protests at the atrocious puns of Louise Grotlisch, chief 
comedienne. . . . Florence Fowble and Ann Jarboe sit by laughing at Eleanor 
Crocker, who does a bit of first-class mimicry of campus leaders. 

Having worked together against hardships that arise in building a sorority, 
the Alpha Deltas find they have many happy memories to look back upon in 
future years.

.APPA ALPHA SIGMA began its Maryland career in the fall of 1935, holding its initial 
meeting at Claflins. There the Kappa Alpha Sigmas have spent many happy hours together, 
forming friendships among themselves and building traditions for future members. 

Glancing into the room as the girls gather for a meeting, one might find Lucille Weller 
working on a last-minute treasury check-up. . . . Chillie Stabler going over her notes on v/hat 
things should be done. . . . Marty Hickman and Dot Hussong giggling all to themselves. . . . 
Clara Goldbeck proudly wearing her Alpha Lambda Delta corsage. . . . Jane Beals instinc- 
tively straightening up the room. 

Agnes Baldwin and Betty Johnston enter still involved in a bacteriology discussion. . . . 
Mary Louise Ganzert arrives with her air of dignity. . . . Anna Voris, hidden behind her books, 
precedes Margaret Menke and Hilda Ryan through the door and with her perpjetual smile 
Elizabeth Clopper greets everyone cheerily. . . . Marcia Ladson breathlessly dashes in, clos- 
ing the door behind her just as the meeting is called to order. 

And so Kappa Alpha Sigma goes on, a group of happy girls, who know that their work in 
establishing their sorority will be a source of happy memories in days to come.

DORMITORY 



* « I'kESHMAN'S lot in the boys' dorm is indeed a sad one. In the fall he shines shoes sings 
operatic arias for the edification of upperclassmen, and prays for rain. In the winter he duclcs 
snowballs and shivers as they hurtle through the windows. In the spring he peers furtive y 
from behind stairs and underneath trash cans in order to avoid the water bags. Veritably, lite 
in the boys' dorm is a peaceful one. 




LIFE 

JLlFE is somewhat more subdued in the girls' dormitory than in the boys' sections. Snow- 
balls and water bags do not fly through the halls with such abandon. In fact, life at the girls' 
dorms may be truthfully said to have reached a civilized state. As the reader may see for 
himself, checkers, clothes, and dates are the principal centers of interest. 



WITH APPRECIATION TO . . . 

HARRY P. LAVELLE, of the Thomsen-EUis Company, for his 
efforts to secure copy on time and in caring for the finer points of 
printing. 

C. GORDON BRIGHTMAN, of the Jahn & OlHer Engraving 
Company, for his receptiveness to new ideas and his willingness 
to carry them out. 

RAYMOND BAILEY, HARRY BALIBAN, and M. MERIN, of the 
Merin-Baliban Company, for their good service in supplying group 
and individual pictures. 

JOHN MUELLER, for his dependability in photographing dance, 
dramatic, and athletic pictures. 

ARTHUR WILLIAM BROWN, for selecting Miss Maryland and 
the beauties of 1938. 

MR. WILLIAM H. HOTTEL, for his willingness in providing ath- 
letic pictures and information. 

O. RAYMOND CARRINGTON, faculty adviser, for the many 
hours of work and thought spent in maintaining staff morale and 
in improving standards of "The Terrapin." 

The many members of the faculty, administration, and student 
body whose services have been indispensable to "The Terrapin." 

Thomsen-Ellis Company of Baltimore, Jahn & Oilier Engraving 
Company of Chicago, Merin-Baliban Company of Philadelphia, 
S. K. Smith Company of Chicago, cover manufacturers, for their 
first-class workmanship, necessary for the satisfactory completion 
of the 1938 "Terrapin."
