^his is a book 
of progress — progress of the 
University in things physical 
and of the classes in matters 

It seeks to capture the 
spirit of the fine book through 
the use of a symbolic medal- 
lion that sets its style and 
depicts its theme. Executed 
by Mr. Dale Nichols, one of 
America's foremost con- 
temporary artists, the 
TERRAPIN'S design presents 
a simplified tree— ^represent- 
ing knowledge — its branches 
and roots gripping an open 
book symbolic of man's rec- 
ords and research, all within 
the bounds of a concentric 
circle of two diametric divi- 
sions, one displaying the rays 
of the sun on its field of white, 
the other showing scattered 
stars on a field of color. Its 
allegorical import portrays 
the expansion of man's 
knowledge througli roots 
deeply planted in and about 
his recorded discoveries as an 
endless process throughout 
the eternal time-cycle of day 
and night. 

It is to such improvement 
of man's lot that the Univer- 
sity has dedicated its march of 
progress; it is to the Univer- 
sity's forward surge that the 
TERRAPIN devotes itself.

Alumnus of the University of Maryland, and one of the 

youngest, most energetic and far-seeing governors the State of 

Maryland has ever had, the editors of the 1940 Terrapin and 

the students of his alma mater respectfully 

dedicate this book 


The Physical 
Aspect of a 


y^ ^ ^ EEPLY engraven into University annals will be entered the hap- 
\J)m I penings of the school year just past. For though 1940 marked 
_JL->^ neither auspicious anniversary of state or school, its days recorded 
the realization of many phases of Maryland's program of progress. Most 
conspicuous of campus advancements was the physical transformation 
wrought by the completion of seven modem buildings and extensive 
alterations to many of the established structures. It is to portray this 
great change, to show bywords and VI EWS the dominance of these 
new edifices over those they replaced, that the editors of the 1940 Terrapin 
present its first section. 


HiLE not as physically impres- 
sive as the permanent buildings adorning the campus, no less notable are the classes them- 
selves. For each class, through the effect of its increased enrollment, through the progress 
of its individual members in their scholastic, athletic, and social attainments, plays an 
integral role in the whole advancing order. The depiction of each undergraduate class then, 
its members, and their interests — pyramiding one on the other through the four years of 
college — embodies the next four divisions of this volume. 


.NSCRIBED on the pages of the FRESHMAN section are events 
that will ever remain etched in the memories of those who have passed the opening mile- 
stone in their collegiate careers. An attempt has been made to capture the first bewilder- 
ment of adjustment to new surroundings, the tiresome, though thrilling, ritual of registra- 
tion, the indignities suffered at the hands of belligerent sophomores, 
the pleasures of Orientation Week. Movement toward the more pur- 
poseful undertaking of study is recounted in the Freshman's initial 
contact with his faculty advisers, while his ventures into organized 
society receive due note in the story of campus fraternities and soror- 
ities. And finally, as if in summation of the growth of a binding spirit 
for the Class of 1943, its athletic triumphs, its aggressive officers, and 
its social successes close this section, portraying a year of glorious 



lPT material for introduction to the Sophomore class history was 
furnished by the victory of the second-year men over their arch Freshmen 
rivals in the annual tug-of-war, for thus was climaxed the term-long induc- 
tion ceremony of the unruly Frosh into Maryland's traditional ranks. But 
a more stirring recollection to the SOPHOMORE than traditional 
victory, springing from the same group feeling that effected the interclass 
triumph, was the deep-seated pride of the second-year athlete in his initial 
Varsity efforts and the genuine interest of the non-participant in the 
attainments of his fellows. Hence, herein are contained all things athletic. 
Appropriate finis is written to the division by a recital of the achievements 
of Sophomore officers and the pleasures of the annual prom. 

Ihe arrival of JUNIOR year sped 
the departure of aimless indecision, for here was a year with a purpose. 
Because the ambitions and constructive labors of their own Junior 
staff members struck closest home, the Terrapin editors open the 
fourth section of this volume with a picturization of publication activ- 
ities during 1940. The many contributions to the progress of campus 
organizations also from Juniors, whose every glance rested on future 
Senior laurels, affords reason for the recitation of club attainments 
within these pages. Yet, the efforts of the third-year student passed 
not without reward; rather, witness the indications on the rolls of 
University honor societies, presented throughout the pages of the 
Junior Division, of their ready acceptance of active and deserving 
Juniors. A final extollment of class leaders and the climactic Prom- 
enade move the Terrapin into the realm of the departing Senior. 


.LWAYS to the SENIOR has fallen a heritage of 
leadership — ^supervision over the Student Government Association, the 
Men's League and the Women's League, and the training of a smart and 
alert military corps. But, though burdened with greatest responsibility, 
the Senior Class attained fullest honors, its most illustrious members being 
elected to the ranks of Omicron Delta Kappa and Mortar Board, its most 
studious to Phi Kappa Phi. So it is that the 1940 Terrapin interprets the 
essence of Senior activity. There then remains but the listing of graduating 
Seniors, the legend of June Week, a final tribute to six of Maryland's sons 
to whom past June Weeks have signified true commencement of voyages to 
success and fame — and the Terrapin's message of progress of school 
and student has run the gamut of its course. 

IMENSIONS still determine extent of growth. 
By such measure, Maryland continued her 
march of progress in 1940. Buildings mush- 
roomed, faculties expanded to fill the build- 
ings, and an ever-increasing student body 
rushed to enroll — we were on the way. 


Overwhelming has been the physical transformation, 
most evident symbol of progress, on the University 
campus during 1940. For, during the year the ad- 
ministrative offices of the University, the Colleges of 
Home Economics and Arts and Sciences, all moved 
gratefully into spacious modern quarters, the Col- 
lege of Agriculture embraced a completely-equipped 
Poultry Building, resident students welcomed a new 
men's dormitory group and dining hall, and the en- 
tire student body looked with approval on a well- 
ordered Infirmary. It is this sudden surge of progress 
that the following section of the 1940 Terrapin at- 
tempts to depict.

The new Home Economics building, occupying a predominant niche 

in the campus square, is proof of the continued growth of the college. 

Its entrance, with wide carved doors and distinctive facing, leads to an 

interior made equally attractive by the unusual color scheme of the walls — 

one which is keyed to light cedar with accents of terra-cotta, dark brown, 

blue and green. Large display windows, modern kitchens, and 

laboratories are all equipped to meet the requirements 

of an advancing scientific curriculum.

White shutters and columns now lend the beauty and dignity of a

have not only heightened its appearance, but its efficiency as well. The 

facilities available for treatment have been greatly improved with the 

inclusion of a laboratory and a physiotherapy room. With its wards,

assumes the role of a hospital.

Now, for the first time in the history of the University, there has 

been erected an adequate poultry building. This new Georgian Colonial 

structure conforms to the architectural style of the campus and is entirely 

modern in facilities for housing classrooms, research laboratories, and staff 

offices. The department is not only in a better position to serve a 

constantly increasing student enrollment, but is able to offer 

to the practical poultrymen a well-rounded 

educational and research program.

the cafeteria has gone a proportional share of renovation. The appearance 
of the dining hall has not been sacrificed to practicability, for the six

ROM cily and country, from high school and 
prep school you came to the University. Your 
past accomplishments meant little, for. with 
your Freshman companions, you were only 
entering the collegiate path to your goal — and 
it was a hard goal to reach. 

rOU FROSH, BUT . . . . 

The bewilderment of arrival, the formality of reg- 
istration, the chiding of Sophomores, and the frivolity 
of orientation affairs together made a week of many 
moods for the entering Freshman. But even when the 
serious business of study with a kindly /acu/^y began, 
a restlessness seemed to prevail, an excitement that 
needed only the rush attentions of campus fraternities 
and sororities to set the pulses quickening. .An^l when, 
with haught\- spirit, behind their officers, the brosh 
lied in promenade, it became readily apparent that 
the Class of 1943 had found itself.

.ou're right — we ha\e something 
here," said the upperclassman as he 
pointed the campus out to the freshman, 
just in town to matriculate — at least 
that"s what the registrar's letter said. 

The rats left home with a sense of fore- 
boding about hazing, only to find their 
sentence postponed for several days until 
the uppcrclassmen could return to the 
campus from Ocean Cit\ . .\nd so. they 
settlc^l down to mo\ing in their luggage 
ani.1 the cakes they receixed as "going 
away presents." Now some found their 
roommates and various members of their 
families already on hand, and so each in- 
troduced himself, told where he was from, 
and how long he had been on campus. 
Others entered an cmpt\ room and 
straightway proceeded to select the bet- 
ter bed and dresser. 

if the freshmen were inclined to in- 
quire as to where registration would be, 
the> di>.ln't bother after a glance at the 
Gym .Armory, for ob\iouslv things were 
happening there but just what, was a 
question, jui-lging from the time they 
stood on the front steps, nothing much 
would happen, but. as is usually the case. 


even waiting lines move. The inside of 
the Armory bore a marked resemblance 
to the New York Stock Exchange. As the 
freshmen gazed upon this scene while 
waiting to have their pictures taken, they 
could only distinguish a mass of hurrying 
people, some of whom apparently knew 
where they were going. The "'to be 
laughed at later" pictures taken, the 
freshmen must needs brave the impos- 
sible confusion below, and with a dazed 
look and faltering step they started down 
the aisle to the right marked "Arts and 
Sciences," "Engineering," etc. The ac- 
tual registration wasn't so difficult. In 

fact, according to the professors, all fresh- 
men took this English and that science, 
and so before they knew it, they were 
signed up for chemistry and told to go 
pay their bills. Then in none too rapid 
succession, they received their dining hall 
cards, P.O. box numbers, library rules, 
and a "don't forget to carry it with you ' 
M Book. 

The freshmen were to learn in short 
order that there was no escaping tests in 
college. The first afternoon, "Wednesday, 
September 1 3, there were language quali- 
fication exams; the second afternoon, 
English classification tests; and the third

afternoon, those amusing aptitude tests. 
Very austere looking teachers and stu- 
dents kept an eagle eye upon them, as 
they drew lines through "ain'ts" and in- 
dicated that "a ship is to water as a car is 
to land. " 

Dinners at the Dining I lall were really 
very interesting and cultural not at all 
the eat and run affairs of which the fresh- 
men had heard. There was always a head 
table with guest speakers and campus 
moguls to look at. My, but those upper- 
classmen were clever the way they could 
greet the freshmen without an obxious 
quake of stage fright. Dr. Jenkins taught 
them how to study in one easy lesson, and 
Coach Dobson made sportsmanship a 
freshman ideal. 

The sense of foreboding about hazing 
became an embarrassing reality when the 
upperclassmen returned The freshmen 
girls were treated lenientK . In fact, about 
all thev had to endure was the once over. 

The Diamondback cautioned the freshmen 
bo\s not to bu\ their radiators, but it did 
not tell them about hu\ing a chance on a 
raccoon coat. Consequently, some fresh- 
men boys were gullible enough to believe 
that perhaps their two-bits and luck 
would entitle them to the coat and the 
honor of walking w ith the frosh president 
at Homecoming. The sophomores were 
obviously very particular about the ap- 
pearance of their shoes, and no one but

the freshman could fill the role of boot- 
black. It was carrying matters a bit far 
too, when they didn't even furnish their 
own shoe polish. 

To sa>' that the wearing of rat hats and 
'"no cutting campus" were enforced in the 
spirit of fun and to be enjoyed by all was 
one thing, but it was another to say that 
paddling was in the same spirit. It was a 
very one-sided affair — but as the juniors 
reminded them — there was always another 

The S.G.A. meeting was comfortably 
informal, or relaxed, as they say at Mary- 
land. Class officers welcomed the fresh- 
men by saying the same thing a half- 
dozen different ways. Some of them were 
funny. The songs and cheers were thrill- 
ing, but it sounded as if the upperclass- 
men should not forget their M Books 
either. The meeting broke up early, only 
to be continued at the Grill. Forsooth, it 
was most amazing how many people that 
place could hold. 

The President's Reception was a very 
definite climax to the week's activities. 
There were so many freshmen enrolled

Coliseum, whieh. w ith the addition of the 
orchestra, catering tables, and palms, as- 
sumed an unusualK' receptix'e appear- 
ance. The receiving line — a very long one 
too — was inescapable, for the committee 
of upperclassmen who helped with the re- 
ception just wouldn't let anyone ease 
through to the dance fioor. Perhaps they 
knew best too, for shaking hands with Dr. 
B\ rd and the faculty recei\ing with him 
wasn't such an ori^lcal after all. 

The dance which followed was made up 
of promenades, Paul Joneses, and snake 
and spot dances, just when a boy had 
met the belle, or otherwise, of the evening, 
a whistle blew, and he was off to a new 
conquest. When 1 1 o'clock came, every 
tired freshman was ready to call it a day. 
On the morrow the\- were able to take it 
easy, for there was nothing of importance 
on the program until Monday, when they 
realK' got into the swing of college life. 
Then, they walked into their classrooms 
and saw the professors, not in formal dress 
as at the reception, and not with their 
party smiles, but in the clothes and smiles 
the\' would wear until June.

The gentleman who headed the receiv- 
ing line at the climactic affair of Orientation 
Week was Dr. Harry Clifton Byrd, Mary- 
land's aggressive president. Graduate of 
the class of 1908, instructor, director of 
athletics and football coach, assistant to 
the president, vice-president, and now 
president, Dr. Byrd's personal history has 
closely paralleled the forward motion of 
the University.

The College of Arts and Sciences pro- 
vides four years of training in the liberal 
arts and natural sciences. The curricula 
are so constructed that a student may 
achieve during the first two years in the 
Lower Division, a broad cultural founda- 
tion for any professional or vocational 
career. In the third and fourth years, 
designated the Upper Division, each stu- 

dent completes a closely unified group of 
courses leading toward vocational, pro- 
fessional, or cultural goals. To students 
of other colleges in the University, the 
College of Arts and Sciences offers train- 
ing in fundamental subjects, both cul- 
tural and scientific, which should permit 
them to acquire the perspective necessary 
for liberal culture and public service.

1 HE College of Agriculture, the adminis- 
trative unit of the University devoted 
especially to the agricultural industries 
and the life of the State, was the original 
unit around which the University of 
Maryland was established. It offers 
courses of instruction and training that 
equip young men and women for agricul- 
tural and related occupations ; it conducts 

systematic research on projects of iinpor- 
tance to agriculture ; through the Exten- 
sion Service, it brings information and 
assistance to people on the farm and in 
their homes throughout the State; and, 
through its regulatory function, it is 
charged with enforcement of those stand- 
ards and control measures which are 
deemed necessary for the common good.

IHE College of Engineering began the 
academic year with the largest enrollment 
in its history, a total of jbo students, of 
whom 260 were freshmen. 

During the year, equipment was added 
in all departments, the faculty was en- 
larged, teaching methods were improved, 
and research work in cooperation with 
Federal, State, and industrial organiza- 

tions was expanded. 

The aim of the courses offered is to 
produce graduates who will not only be 
well trained in the fundamentals of en- 
gineering, but who will become good citi- 
zens as well as good engineers. The work 
of the College of Engineering continues to 
merit the approval of the engineering 
accrediting agencies.

The majority of the graduates in home 
economics use their training as home 
makers, which is the first aim of all home

The position of Dean of Faculty was 
created at the beginning of the collegiate 
year 1938. The underlying purpose of 
this innovation was to bring the faculty 
and administration in closer harmony. 

Although it is difficult to define the 
specific duties of the Dean of the Faculty, 

it may be said that the main function of 
the office is to give advice on faculty and 
administrative problems. Also, the ser- 
vices of the Dean of the Faculty are al- 
ways at the disposal of the students, staff, 
and parents.

which benefit the entire student body. 

The chairmanship of the Student Life 
Committee is his most important single 

responsiblity, for in this position he is

Ihe department of Dean of Women is 
organized like other administrative de- 
partments — the dean is the head and is 
responsible for the program of work. It is 
difficult to define the duties. However, 
the more important ones are; officially 
representing women's interests: helping 

students to make academic adjustments; 
guiding students" social affairs; super- 
vising dormitories and off-campus houses : 
placing housemothers in dormitories, so- 
rorities, and fraternities: counseling in- 
dividual students: and advising and co- 
operating with womens organizations.

rnity '^F{ushing 

JTerhaps it all started when f->eddie 
Freshman pledged Mu Cow Mu because 
the boys at the Nu Tu ^ u house tried to 
slip him a Mickey Finn at a pledge dance. 
However, such tactics as these were never 
resorted to on the Maryland campus. The 
fraternit\ . during rushing season, merely 
told him to make their house his house, 
and to steer clear of all snakes-in-the- 
grass (other fraternity men). 

The lowly "rat" was completely as- 
tounded by the number of men in the dif- 
ferent frats who possessed long strings of 
keys. How was he to know that these 
were borrowed from some alumnus lor the 
occasion, and the complete assortment of 
cu|~is. trophies, banners, and medals were 
acquirei.1 in the same wa\' to accomplish 
the same purpose. 

For two weeks the prospect was gi\en 
all sorts of consideration, his schedule was 
arranged, buildings and classrooms were 
pointed out, rides were furnished to and

from classes, he lunched at the house, 
dates were arranged, and dances and 
smokers were held for his benefit. .A. 
routine similar to this went on for two 
weeks until Silence Day. Then, for the 
next twenty-four hours the frosh was 
given a chance to think about the bid 
that he wanted to accept. 

When the gloating and ' 'sour grapes' " 
were over, and after many a pin had 
been proudly' displayed, the tables 
seemed to be turned. The paddle be- 
came "the board of education," the 
house was entered \ia the back door, 
shoes were shined for the actives, and 
he became a dumb, gross, insignificant 
"goat" who was required to learn the 
names of the founders and a host of 
other seemingly worthless facts about 
the fraternity of his choice. 

At the beginning of the second se- 
mester, formal initiation brought forth 
a new and shiny pin and many "broth- 
ers" who were entitled to borrow mone>', 
clothes, and automobile.

of classes and for two weeks the council

Joseph S. Merritt 






























A cooperative system wrs inaugurated 
among the Interfraternity Councils of 
George Washington, Georgetown, and 
Maryland Universities, with the idea in 
mind of promoting friendship and closer 
ties between these three schools. Mem- 
bers of the University of Maryland Coun- 
cil were guests of the George Washington 
Council at their Prom held in the ball- 
room of the Willard Hotel in Washington 
and had the pleasure of dancing to the 
music of Glen Gray and his orchestra. 

All clubs gave their hearty support to 
the Interfraternity sing sponsored by the 
Tri Delts. Held in March in the Agricul- 
ture Auditorium, the contest assumed a 
formal air as the participants came 
dressed in evening dresses and tuxedos. 
To Kappa Delta sorority went the award 
for the best group singing. 

Only the friendliest of rivalry and true 
sportsmanship prevailed in interfrater- 
nity athletics. The Sigma Nu's walked 
away with first places in touch football, 
volleyball, and basketball. The Theta

The annual Interfraternity Ball was 
the climactic affair of the 1939-40 council, 
which was guided through the year by 
Joseph Merritt, president; Page I-'ulling-

fraternity life. Occupying a conspicuous 
position behind the band was the new 
InterfratcrnitN Council banner, laxors

for permanent possession. The scholar-

the freshman student with the highest 
scholastic average. Phi Sigma Kappa 
took the ping-pong championship cup 
from the A.T.O.'s, in whose possession it 
had been for the past two years.

his successor, Walter Spelsberg, who in

Kelso Shipe, the Phi Delt prexy, did his bit 
by holding down the positions of head cheer- 
leader and business manager of the Old Line. 
Kelso shared membership in O.D.K. with 
Frank Davis, who had the unique distinction 
of being president of his class for three suc- 
cessive years. 

Any account of the activities of the Phi 
Delts would be incomplete without some men- 
tion of Gene Ochsenreiter who, besides being 
Junior Prom chairman, managed to spend a 
good part of his time either on the track or the 
basketball court. Carl Goller contributed his 
bit to the club's list of activities by serving as 
varsity track manager.

/iLPHA Tau Omega celebrated its tenth 
birthday on the Maryland campus by having 
the house completely redecorated. 

The R.O.T.C. unit was replete with the 
A.T.O.'s, in Captain Joe Parks, and Lieu- 
tenants Bill Brown, Bruce Davis, and George 
Lawrence. George also played lacrosse and 
football, and climaxed his athletic career this 
year by being named to the All-District Eleven. 
The A.T.O.s turned out en masse at the bo.x- 
ing matches to see the ring performances of 
brothers Norm Hathaway and John Harn. 

The Alpha Taus have a right to be proud of 
their scholarship record. Among their mem-

iwo events brought Sigma Phi Sigma 
prominently into the limelight this year. They 
built a new house, and Bert Coleman, one of 
the outstanding Footlighters, escorted Ann 
Rutherford around Washington. But Bert and 
the new house were not all that Sigma Phi 
Sigma had to swell its pride. Bob Kinney, 
Glee Club president, composed "Alma Mater." 
Doug Steinberg, business manager of the 
Diamondback, Warren Steiner, manager of 
boxing last year, and captain in the R.O.T.C., 
and Tom Coleman, president of the S.G.A., 
were members of O.D.K. 

In the athletic field Cy Race was the man- 
ager of the wrestling team, and Bob Wilson, 
vice-president of the Senior Class, was a 
tennis ace. 

At the rate that Sigma Phi Sigma has been 
going they may soon answer the telephone in

Alpha Gamma Rho's membership was stud- 
ded with campus moguls. Vernon Foster was 
president of Alpha Zeta, Bill Brosius was presi- 
dent of the Student Grange, and Joe Merritt, 
as president of the Interfraternity Council, 
held one of the most responsible positions on 
the hill. Howard Bailey was varsity goalie on 
the soccer team. 

In the line of scholarship the Alpha Gamma 
Rhos were justly proud of their record. The 
scholarship cup offered annually by the Inter- 
fraternity Council has been in their posses- 
sion almost continually.

J~l.\\iN(; merged with Theta Kappa Nu, 
Lambda Chi Alpha now claims the largest 
national organization of any fraternity on the 
hill and ranks third in size among all frater- 
nal organizations in the country. 

Led by Nelson Jones, expansion of the fra- 
ternity was local as well as national. .\ well- 
rounded pledge group was attained at the end 
of rush season, and eight new members were 
added to the active list during the year. 

Improvements to the house added meas- 
urably to the enjoyment of the brothers. Re- 
decoration of the entire interior brightened 
surroundings, and a new recording machine 
and radio led to many pleasant hours of re-

Junior R.O.T.C. Well-known on the campus 
were Jose Sanchiz, president of the Spanish

members of Tau Beta Pi. 

Climaxing the Lambda Chi's activities was 
the Founder's Day Banquet and spring formal 
dance held at the Wardman Park Hotel on 
March 15. At this occasion the local chapter 
was fortunate in having as guest speaker a 
prominent national officer, High Chancellor 
Russell Chedderly.

inE past year witnessed the blending of the 
purple and white of Sigma Alpha N lu with the 
black and gold of the University of Mar\ lanLl, 
for though S..\.M. e.xperieneed internal e.x- 
pansion. a fine social season, and the good 
fortune of securing a new house, its members 
found time to enter fully into Uni\'ersit>- life. 
Dave iAbrams, in addition to holding the 
fraternal reins, maintained his perennial ^5 
average, coached and captained the fencing 
team, and represented his fraternit\' on the 
Hillel Club Student Council. Murray Valen- 
stein served as sports editor of the Diamond- 
back and capped his record as a member of the 
committee for each of his class proms by being 
appointed to the social committee for June 
Week. Ralph Tyser, circulation manager of 
the Diamondback, was a lieutenant in the ad- 
vanced R.O.T.C., and with Murray a member 
of Pi DeltaEpsilon. Stanley Mann and f lar\e\

varsity track team. It is interesting to note 
that these five, all residents of the top floor of 
the fraternity house, earned a combined aver- 
age of 3.2. 

Bob Farkus became intramural handball 
champion though it necessitated defeating 
three S.A.M. pledges to gain the title, while 
other intramural sports held interest for Alfred 
Bernstein and "Colonel" Zinberg. Both 
Marvin Polikoff,- Diamondback sport staff 
member, and Al Molofsky, sophomore prom 
committee appointee, reflected Valenstein's 
influence with their choices of endeavor. 
Sidney Berman and Eugene Fisher rounded 
out the membership of a literally active group.

.AKING literally the words of their fra- 
ternity's jaunty rouser song, "Tau, boys . . . 
Is the first to take a place . . . ," the fraters of 
Tau Epsilon Phi's campus chapter during the 
past school season garnered honors in almost 
every phase of University activity. 

Best known among T.E.P.'s graduating se- 
niors was "Mickey " Mulitz, former All- 
American lacrosse star and Varsity basket- 
bailer. The chapter's other athletic luminaries, 
"Hotsey" Alperstein, 145-pound Varsity boxer, 
Arthur Peregoff, manager of the Varsity ten- 
nis team, "Scotty " Young, F"rosh lacrosse 
manager, and "Jason " LeFrak, 1939 track 
manager, all earned their letters. The latter 
three, together with Freshman boxing man- 
ager-elect Tilles, junior track manager Han

Harwood, and junior tennis manager Alvin 
Salganik, formed a sizable portion of the 
membership of Latch Key. 

Peregoff and Young shone in scholarship. 
The former, a consistent 3.5 accounting stu- 
dent, was initiated into Beta Alpha Psi ; the 
latter, an embryonic marketer, was appointed 
chairman of the Advertising Committee of the 
Collegiate Chamber of Commerce. 

Chancellor "Gabby" Lehman stood high 
among Senior chemistry students ; Larry Auer- 
bach was vice-president and stage manager of 
the Footlight Club; and Bill Bralove and 
"Bunny" Klawans expanded T.E.P.'s active

Oi.\ii-:kn acti\e members and five pledges 
joined in an enthusiastic celebration of Phi 
Alpha s twenty-first anniversary on the cam- 
pus. Especially significant as a mark of de- 
velopment was the increased interest shown 
by the members in campus affairs. 

Burt Borden carried the presidency of Beta 
Alpha Psi, honorary accounting fraternity, an 
honor that went hani.l-in-h;inLl with his status 
as top ranking man of the College of Com- 
merce. Managership of the Freshman tennis 
team added to a well-rounded program.

year's Terrapin consumed the bulk of the 
school year for George Flax, who was also a 
member of Pi Delta Epsilon. honorary journal- 
istic fraternity. With Burt. Cieorge was a

ii. brotlicrs of .Alpha Lamb^la lau met lor 
their weekly conclave in a little white house 
about half way down the hill. The fact that 
most of them were daydodgers did not prevent 
them from taking an active part in many 
campus activities. 

When Buddy Dieudonne called the meeting 
to order, he saw a goodly number of uniforms 
in the crowd. Lacy Hall held down a Junior 
Officer's position in the R.O.T.C., as well as in 
the Pershing Rifles. Lacy was also a member 
of the .American Society of Mechanical 1 Engi- 
neers. Secretary Cliff Saltzman, another ol the 
boys in advanced arm\-, was a budding a\ ia- 
tor. He was one of the favore^l few on the 
campus who took the course given by the 
Ci\il .Aeronautics .Authority. John Crone 
added to the military aspect an^l name ol the 
club as an officer in the R.O.T.C. 

The Alpha Lambda Taus did not see much 
of Bob Mohle during the second semester. He 
was busy practice teaching and all of his .spare 
moments were spent in the preparation ol

lesson plans. The Daniel Boone of the club was 
Howard Fugitt. one of the regular members of 
the University rifle team. 

Encouragement by faculty members did 
much to bolster the interest and enthusiasm of 
the boys. George W. Fogg of the Library and 
Charles D. Murphy of the English Depart- 
ment willingly lent their time and energy 
toward putting the group on a firm foundation. 

At the present time Alpha Lambda Tau is 
one of the smaller clubs on the campus. How- 
ever, the past few years have shown a marked 
progressiveness manifested in its sizable 
pledge classes, and the members are looking 
forward to a well-established position on the 
Maryland campus.

Ihf. display of panhellenic spirit and 
cooperation was noteworthy during the 
past year. The council functioned 
under the direction of Ann Irvine, pres- 
ident; Mary Lee Ross, secretary: and 
Tempe Curry, treasurer. 

To the representatives of the fi\'e 
national sororities and several local 
clubs fell the task of revising and ad- 
ministering rush rules. 

.\n institution that has pro\ed its 
worth in other schools — a Junior Pan- 
hellenic was organized by the council. 
Two pledges of each group met reg- 
ularly at the different chapter houses, 
where members explained to the neo- 
phytes the duties and responsibilities of 
acollege panhellenic council an^l stressed 
the importance of friendK relations 
among the campus sororities. 

Each Pan-Hel sorority played hostess 
to members of other groujTS at the pro- 
gressive dinner. Later in the evening 
the pledges joined the actives in invit- 
ing campus swains to radio dances held 
in all the houses.

Sorority Rushing 

vJn the Sunday afternoon of the Panhellenic 
Open-Day teas, many a hopeful lass dressed 
within an inch of her life and stepped appre- 
hensively on the threshold of an imposing 
sorority house. The door was opened wide and 
the members of the sisterhood turned on their 
charm full blast. 

For a mad week she was "tea'd,"" feted, and 
questioned. Then when her resistance had 
reached an all-time low, the week-end arrived 
and she had a chance "to see how the girls 
really live." She found herself on a date with 
a campus big shot who praised dear old T.K.O. 
and impressed upon her that she was not the 
"Sigma" type. 

After harrowing all-night bull sessions in the 
dorms following the week-end, she came to the 
end of the rush period. Then, on Pledge Day 
she aligned herself with the group in which 
there were the greatest number of coeds her 
size with cute clothes.

Women, in various functions of Freshman 
Week, and followed this up in late September 
with the annual tea for Freshman women. 
Special features of the year were the joint

Scenes from freshman sports program 


Their Spirit 

Xhe ancient maxim, "F^riJe goeth be- 
fore destruction and a haughty spirit he- 
fore a fall. ' best described the Class of '43 
during the early part of the first semester. 
Everything started when the ne\vl\- elected 
F"reshman Class President. .\1 Ruppers- 
berger, announce^l to the school that the 
freshmen were no longer going to abide 
by the traditional "rat rules." Upon 
hearing this statement, the sophomores 
immcdiateK' took measures to preser\T 

the dignity and supremacy of the class. 
Headed by their prexy. Bill Holbrook. 
the sophs played barber and ga\e Rup- 
persberger a novel Indian haircut. The 
issue reached a dramatic climax following 
a freshman meeting when sophs met frosh 
in a hand-to-hand encounter in front of 
the Chemistry Building, I-'ollowing this 
tw(vhour feui^l a temporary truce was de- 
clared, and the well-known sophomore

Their Officers . . . 

The climax of the struggle between 
classes was finally reached on Home-

came a decided victory for the Sopho- 
mores. Altogether, the Class of 1943 
feels it has shown more spirit than has 
been expressed on the campus in many 

Other officers of the class who were 
more fortunate in surviving the on-

Their Prom 

But the smoke had by no means 
cleared, for on December 8 the frosh 
precipitated a near riot by their an- 
nouncement, "No stags allowed" to 
the Freshman Promenade. This issue 
settled, they at last cast aside their 
aura of independence, and, to the mu- 
sic of Matt Matson and his CBS elev- 
en-piece orchestra, played host to the 
upperclassmen. Matson had recently 
played at Catholic and George Wash- 
ington Universities and had enjoyed 
increasing popularity in the South. In 
addition to the vocalizations of Dot 
Farrell, the University quartet har- 
monized on popular tunes. 

DeWitt Smith, general chairman of 
the Prom, was assisted by the follow- 
ing committee heads: Ray Grelecki, 
orchestra ;Marjorie Brock, promenade; 
Eileen Carter, decorations; Kathryn 
Sheely, bids; Charles Harry and Betty 
Graham, chaperones. 


FTER a year at Maryland, finding yourselj 
and the University compatible, you developed 
definite interests. Foremost rose a new atten- 
tion to Xarsity teams and players, and an 
even stronger ivill to ivin in sport contests. It 
was not all. but it ivas an excellent Sophomore 


A hearty handclasp from familiar companions, a 
realization that he was on the transmitting end of the 
proverbial "paddle" ga\e the Sophomore encourage- 
ment to firmly supervise the class affairs of the lowly 
Frosh. With like vitality he participated or cheered 
his mates as they assumed their places on varsity 
athletic teams or engaged in Homecoming Day or AU- 
l 'niversily \'ight programs. Thus passed the first 
plunge into aggressive leadership by in^li\idual of- 
ficers and classmen, and as a result, there was a 
stronger spirit of conviviality, embodied in a congenial 
promenade, for the Sophomore Class as a whole.

Opener from Hampden-Sydney 

Terrapin forces did their first howling 
September 30 when they defeated a stub- 
born but hopelessly inadequate Hamp- 
den-Sydney eleven in the opener at Col- 
lege Park. The Terps scored twice in the 
first quarter when Joe Murphy skirted 
around left end from the twelve. A few 
minutes later a pass from Murphy to 
Beamer set up a three-yard plunge by 
Johnny Boyda for the second tally.

The final score of the da\' came in the 
closing minutes when the Old Liners 
worked the ball down to the Tiger 8 and

Only the superb punting of Harry Mur-

Elder received a bad pass behind the goal 
line and fell on it for a safety. Western 
Maryland kicked off and the ball was 
brought back on a sustained march to the 
Terror 20, from where Mondorff scam- 
pered for a touchdown. 

A moment later, Mondorff led another 
attack at the Western Maryland goal, but 
was stalled by a stubborn Terror defense 
on their 14. Mondorff's third field goal 
attempt of the night was good from the 
2 1 , and the score stood at 1 2-0. 

Ulman carried on the good work he 

started in the Hampden-Sydney game by 
intercepting Elder's pass on the Mary- 
land 30 and weaving seventy yards for a 
touchdown which was not counted be- 
cause of a clipping penalty.

another DuVall pass found Frank Dwyer's 
hands in pay dirt. The conversion was 
good and Maryland led 7 o at the half.

Du\ all Stars; Terps Drop One 
to Rutgers, 25-12, in Upset 

Rutgers took full advantage of Joe 
Murphy's fumble on the kickoff and 

scored three plays later. From this point 
they went on to defeat the desperate Terps 
25-12 at New Brunswick October 21. 

DuVall came in for some more plain 
and fancy passing which led to both of the 
Old Liners' scores. The beginning of the 
second quarter found Maryland in pos- 
session of the ball on the Scarlet one-foot 
mark. Mearle bounced over for Mary- 
land's first blood. 

Rutgers, paced by Bill Tranavitch and 
Vinnie Utz, scored twice to gain the lead 
19-6. DuVall flipped a series of passes to 
Ulman to bring the Terps within striking 
distance the second time. A razzle-dazzle 
triple reverse which resembled more a 
game of catch-the-hot-potato than foot- 
ball placed the ball on the Scarlet 10. 
Mondorff looped a pass to Dwyer in the 
end zone and the half ended with Rut- 
gers leading 19-12. 

The second half was a deadlock until 
the last three minutes of the game when 
Gottlieb of the Scarlet intercepted a Mary- 
land pass on his own 17, and from there 
passed to a Rutgers wingman to score.

Eight thousand loxal ani.1 shi\cring 
fans sprinkled themselves over B\ rd Sta- 
dium October 28 and watched a slightly 
underrated Florida team push through 
with a 14-0 victory over the Terps in the 
annual homecoming classic. 

1 lomecoming acti\ities began carK in 
the morning with the enrollment of the 
old grads, followed by the annual frosh- 
sophomore struggle in Paint Branch. In- 
tense rivalry earlier in the \ear stimulated 
interest in this particular tug-of-war, and 
from the beginning it promised to be like 
no other. It was a losing fight for the 
Frosh, as the second-year men pulled 
their little brothers in and under, and rat 
caps were still the rule when the mud- 
slinging had stopped. 

At halftime of the game, Kappa Delta

A strong wind kept the Maryland pass- 
ing attack from getting under way, and a 
much superior Gator line kept them 
stymied on the ground, Mearle DuVall 
was not available for duty, and Murphy 
had the signal calling duties to himself 
the entire afternoon. His speed was the 
usual threat until he tired in the last part 
of the fray, but his kicking was still great. 

Bud Walton, little .Andy Beno, and 
Hubie Houston carried the fight to the 
Terps the entire si.xty minutes. Walton 
was almost a lone figure in the first Flor- 
ida touchdown a few minutes before the 
end of the first half, as he brought the 
ball a major portion of the 3b-yard drive 
to the goal.

The second half saw a punting duel be- 
tween Joe Murphy and Walton. C^ne of 
Joe's kicks traveled eighty-two yards from 
the Maryland end zone for the best single 
performance of the day. 

EarK in the last quarter, the Old Liners 
made their single hid for a touchdown 
when thc\- got the ball on the Cjator 36, 
but the Florida line held like a brick wall 
and the Terps lost the ball on downs. 

Spirit faded from the Terps with this 
effort and Florida took over for a fifty- 
eight-yard march for their second and 
last touchdown.

afternoon when Coach Dobson took the 
Maryland team to State College Novem- 
ber 4. 

Albarano, captain of the Terp forces, 
led the defensive sixty minutes, and kept 
the goal line intact for three of the quar- 
ters. The Penn State power got under 
way twice in the wind-up of the third 
quarter, pushed over two tallies within a 
few minutes, and then retired to dog- 
fight for the balance of the game. 

It was an inspired team that kept the 
Lions at bay those forty-five minutes. 
Murphy and Boyda led the offensive with 
plunges by the latter which shook the 
formidable Penn State line, and passes by 
Murphy which were a constant threat. 
Ulman came in for some more glory in his 
stellar defense play and his short-lived 
passing exhibition. 

Most of the Lions' gains were on the 
ground as the Terps pass defense had 
tightened up after the Virginia and Flor- 
ida lessons. Their two scores resulted 
from runs from their 48 and 47-yard lines

the only Terp scoring opportunity of the 
game was gone. 

Joe Murphy came into his own again in 
this contest as his superb punting pulled 
the Terps out of a hole on several oc- 
casions. One of his punts travelled si.xty- 
five yards in the air, and on the kickoff 
beginning the second half, he ran the 
ball back sixty-two yards to the Hoya 33. 

Georgetown was on the offensive a 
great portion of the game, forcing the Old 
Liners to kick from deep in their own 
territory whenever they were fortunate 
enough to handle the hall. Georgetown 
scored in the second, third and fourth 
quarters and converted successfully twice 
to end the game 20-0. 

Unfortunately, the pre-game rally and 
all-night drum beating, though enjoyable 
while they lasted, meant naught on the 
final result.

Boyda's Performance Features 
14-0 Defeat by V.M.I, at Norfolk 

A majority of the frenzied mob of 
15,000 spectators who crowded Foreman 
Field, down in Norfolk, November 18, 
will not remember the score nearly as long 
as they will remember Johnny Boyda's 
exhibition of power and stamina. 

It was Boy da all the way, from the 
opening whistle to the gun. Each time he 
carried the ball the crowd was on its feet. 
His solo performances accounted for a 
very large part of the Terp yardage, and 
in one drive in the third period, with the 
Terps trailing 7-0, he accounted for 40 
yards of a Maryland bz-yard march from 
their own 18 to V.M.I.'s 20. It was his 
linebucking and plunging that accounted 
for every first down on this march.

13-0 in their favor. In the second period 
Bosh Pritchard took N4ondorff"s punt on

goal toward the end of the first period set 
up the game for a nip-and-tuck job as 
both teams sparred for an advantage in 
the middle of the field.

second period when the Terps received 
the ball on their own 42. On the first play,

When Coach Shipley called out all 
candidates for the basketball squad there 
were two familiar faces missing — two 
faces that mentor Shipley would have 
liked very much to see on the court. 
"Dutch"" Knepley and Eddie Johnson, 

both All-Southern Conference basketeers, 
had departed \'ia the graduation route. 
.Answering the initial roll call were vet- 
erans George DeWitt, Pershing Mondorff, 
Adam Bengoechea, Gene Ochsenrciter and 
Bill Rea. Supplementing these \ets were

Mearle DuVall, Leon Vannais, Bob Por-

and "Reds" McHale, all promising rookies. 
Plus the first two elements of experienced 
men and frosh there was still a third 
group; Terps who had starred in sports 
other than the court game. Mickey 
Mulitz reported fresh from All-American 
honors on the lacrosse field; Charlie 
Weidinger, after three years" work on the 
gridiron, donned basketball shorts; and 
Eddie Miller, stellar high jumper, shifted 
the scenes of his activities. 

After conditioning his veterans, and 
changing the Terplets into Terps, Coach 
Shipley had his court aggregation ready. 
Opening against Western Maryland, the 
Terps breezed in by the comfortable mar- 
gin of 48-32, and Randolph-Macon was 
taken into camp with little effort. 

Following a short Christmas holiday, 
Clemson was met and defeated in Balti- 
more. Charlie Weidinger was high point 

scorer for the third time in three games. 
The Old Liners opened a three-day north- 
ern jaunt by dropping a close contest to 
the University of Pennsylvania. The next 
night the Black and Gold cagers resumed 
their winning ways by dropping Rutgers 
5 1-39. Friday evening the Terps opened

following afternoon Washington and Lee 
set DeWitt and company down plenty 
hard. Maryland could not fathom the

Four days later the courtmen left on 
their final journey, traveling to Lexing- 
ton. Here they split the spoils, losing to 
Washington and Lee but defeating V.M.L 
by a 60 to 33 margin. Back at College 
Park again the weather prevented the 
Washington College game from coming 
into being, thereby giving the basketeers 
a much needed rest. Catholic University 
and V.M.I. fell before the Liner sharp- 
shooters, the latter game qualifying the 
Terps for the annual Conference in 
Raleigh. In the last contest before the 
playoff, George Washington took the 
measure of the Black and Gold. 

Drawing Washington and Lee, who had 
twice defeated them, the Marylanders 

were not conceded much of a chance to 
advance in the tournament. Fighting an 
uphill battle all the way the Liners, how- 
ever, came through to a 43-30 victory, 
mainly due to the efforts of DeWitt on the 
offense and Mulitz on the defense. Mov- 
ing into the semi-final bracket, the Terps 
were outclassed by a powerful Duke five 
to end their season. 


l\ STREAMLINED parade of extra-cur- 
ricular activities directed by Ralph Wil- 
liams featured the non-athletic part of the

Sandwiched between the basketball 
game with Catholic University and the 
boxing matches w ith Western Maryland 
College, the parade depicted the tnany ex- 
tra-curricular acti\ities of the Uni\crsity. 
It included performances by the band, the 
combined chorus, the men's and women's 
physical education departments, an^l Per- 
shing Rifles.

with more experience and added weight 
should put him at the top of the heap by

hitter of the team, Bob Bradley con- 
sistently came through with clean-cut 
victories. An old cut that opened up 
above his eye was all that could trouble 
the Maryland "Golden Boy." 

Against Catholic University at their 
gym the old rivalry continued, and when 
the smoke had settled the Brooklanders 
had eked out a 4 W-3>2 win. 

The favored Cavaliers of Virginia, 
boasting a winning streak, were held to a 
stalemate when in the final bout Izzy 
Leites moved up a notch to clearly out- 
punch and outbox big Ed Burgess. Leites, 
a senior fighting for the first year, was, in 

Coach Miller's opinion, the most im- 
proved boxer on the squad. In the Vir- 
ginia fight Bradley showed his old form by 
hammering a T.K.O. over Bob Schenk- 
len. Nate Askin's win over Pete Coy was 
another on the string of undefeated dual 
matches in two years. Newt Cox dropped 
his first fight when a close decision was 
awarded to the other corner.

/\tii;R many Jays of glooniN' weather 
anJ rain the Old Liner baseball squad 
finally had its first outdoor workout just 
three days before the month of April 
rolled around. Head Coach Burton Ship- 
ley had a large squad of recruits trying 
out for the positions that were left open 
by lads like Johnson and Chumbris, who 
had graduated. 

With infield trcjublcs galore, mentor 
Shipley began building a new infield com- 
bination, having Adam Bengoechea as the 
foundation. .Adam with two years' Varsity 
play under his belt (illed in the gap at 
second like a charm. Jake Rui^ly and 
Newt Cox staged a battle for the initial 
sack post but they were both good ma- 
terial and Coach Shipley alternated the 
lads in every game. Dick McHale loomed 
as the hot spot man and filled in the port- 
side corner like a veteran. 

Big Leib McDonald and Pop Wharton 
hooked up in a Juc\ for the short-stopping 
job. However, during the season, each 
saw plenty of action. The pitching prob- 
lem was a beauty with Earl Springer, 
Persh Mondorff, the Woodwards, and 
Dick Hunt trying for the top positions. 


Manager of Varsity Baseball 


Springer worked like a big leaguer in the 
past season and seemed certain to go up 
to the big show. Persh was the topnotcher 
when it came to the right banders. 

In the outfield the situation proved to 
be even better. Hugh Keller, the brother 
of the famed Charlie, roared into the sea- 
son with a banner year. In the first five 
games the Middletown slugger batted 
out fifteen hits in just twenty-five trips to 
the plate for a .523 average. Tiny Adam 
Bengoechea pressed the mighty Keller 
with seven for fifteen for a mighty .466 
figure. Bert Culver guarded the middle 
section of the vast outer garden and was 
one of the finest looking fielders in the 
conference. Culver is improved greatly 
over last year and began hitting the "old 
apple" when the season rolled around. 
Fritz Maisel was tops in the starboard 
spot. Maisel's hitting improved and, with 
the aid of Bill England, right field wor- 
ries were nil.

membered as one of the Terrapins' better

was a dependable second choice although

The season opened \\ ith a Jaunt in the 
"sunny" lands of the south during the

Carolina upset the Liners 8-7 in a ten-

A little lass to be envied 

Shipley began rebuilding and repairing 
the infield. Billy Evans was gi\en a 
chance to prove his skill at short but 
failed in favor of McDonald. Wharton 
came in after spring football practice and 
began showing promise. McHale was 
tops at third and stayed in that slot until 
the last game. 

After an exhibition tilt with the Balti- 
more Orioles the Terps prepared for the 
coming games including the Hoya-Liner 
affair. With Earl Springer and Persh 

Mondorff on tap the Liners were set to 
repeat last year's showing when Lefty 
Springer turned the Hoya crew back 4-0 
in the local pitch, allowing the Washing- 
ton lads but two hits. 1 n the other ancient 
ri\alry the Terps last year outlasted the 
Georgetown nine to win 8-4, but the 
Hoyas had a better outlook this season 
and all indications pointed to a real 
punch for punch tussle to redeem the 20-0 
gridiron defeat suffered by the Terps in 
the fall. 


With all of last year's National Inter- 
collegiate championship lacrosse team 
back except Jim Meade and Rip Hewitt, 
lost through graduation, the prospects 
for a trophy repeat in 1940 were fairly 

To fill the gaps in the starting linc-u|^ 
left by the loss of these two stars. Coach 
Faber found ample material from last 
year's squad, besides several players from 
the freshman team. Outstanding year- 
lings sporting the Varsity colors were Al 
Siesinger, on attack, Mark Kelly in the 
goal, and Bill McGregor in the midfield. 
The greatest strength this year la\ in the 
trio of close defense men. Leo Mueller 
and Micky Mulitz held down regular 
berths last year and Bill Graham was a 
regular the year before. The first of the 
season saw these three men working to- 
gether beautifully to do their share in re- 
turning the title to the Terps.

Except for Rip Hewitt, the efficient 
attack of last year returned intact. Sev- 
eral advantageous changes altered the 
appearance of the spearhead of the team. 
Lively Billy Bond played in-home. Billy 
was not a regular last year, but played 
much of each game, and as a senior this 
year earned his position on the starting 
line-up. The only familiar face on the 
close attack was Oscar Nevares. Playing 
the same brilliant game that won him 
recognition last year, Oscar gave some 
fine performances before he turned in his 
uniform for the last time at the end of the 
season. The only sophomore playing 
regularly, Al Slesinger, performed a brand 
of stick handling that promises great 
things in the next two years. 

Some shifting around was necessary 
to accommodate Slesinger on the close 
attack. Jordan " "Smiley" Sexton had been 
playing the crease and doing a fine job. 
His speed and stick handling were valu- 
able in any position, so Coach Faber 
shifted him to midfteld to fill the shoes 

left vacant by .A.ll-American Jim Meade. 
The others in the midfield were vet- 
erans Jack Mueller and Billy Cole. Jack 
played close defense last year, but he 
shifted to midfield to make room for Bill 
Graham. His experience gained in the 
previous season stood him in good stead 
and he did well in his new position. Sev- 
eral times he ran the length of the field to 
score unassisted. The center position, 
possibly the toughest spot on the team,

The greatest problem confronting the 
coaching staff was the selection of a goalie, 
Jack Grier played the goal last year and 
returned for his last season. Competing 
with jack for the position was sophomore 
Mark Kelly. Kell\- played close attack 
on the freshman club last year, but was 
an outstanding goalie in his prep-school 
days. I le is better under pressure than 
the \eteran Cirier, but is not so adept at 
clearing out. In the first four games each 
played part of the time, and that ap- 
peared to be a workable solution to the 
net problem. 

With only twcj regulars missing, the 
men who came up fn^n last season yearling 
crop did not get much of a show ing. The 
freshmen were undefeated last year, but 
onl\ .\I Slesinger. who led the attack, got 
a regular berth on the Varsity. In the 
midfield c^nK Rill McCiregor qualified for 
a uniform. 1 le played every game and 
turned in a credible performance each 
time. Bart Hewitt played midfield on the 

freshman team, but subbed at close at- 
tack as a sophomore this year. .Another 
sophomore who ran in "show" position 
all year was Carl Bacharach. fighting 
with Grier and Kelly for a place in the 
goal. He lacked the polish of the faxorites, 
however, and so did all of his work in the 
practice sessions. 

Meeting the Mount Washington stick- 
men for the opening game of the 1940 
season, the Terrapins took an 8-3 lacing 
from the Baltimore clubmen as they ex- 
acted revenge for last > ear's i i 1 dis- 
grace. In the first quarter the Old Liners 
ga\e the fans fruitless hopes when they

Dartmouth was the lead-off team in a 
series of three games played in six days as 
they met the Fabermen at College Park 
April I. The Indian raid was ineffectual, 
the Terps having little trouble in turning 
back the Dartmouth ten. Al Slesinger led 
his team with four tallies in his first var- 
sity game against college competition. At 
no time was the Indian team in the same 
league with the Marylanders, and the Old 
Line defense did not get a chance for a 

" Three days later Maryland overran 
the Harvard team i i-i. Harvard scored 
first and the fans thought perhaps a la- 
crosse miracle was in the making before 
their very eyes, but the Terps soon 
swamped them with tally after tally. 

Everybody on the team got a good 
workout on the sixth when the Terrapins 

ran roughshod over a hopelessly out- 
classed Loyola ten from Baltimore. Start- 
ing their attack early, the Terps downed 
the visiting team ib-4. 

Next year there will be several new 
faces on the starting team. Cole, Bond, 
Nevares, Leo Mueller, Graham, Mulit", 
Grier, alternates Heil, Garrett, and Law- 
rence are graduating, leaving their po- 
sitions to juniors and members of the 
present freshman team. Several of the 
yearlings will be welcome on the Varsity 
next year. Milt Vandenberg and Ray 
Grelecki are great attack men and Bruce 
Campbell was an All-Maryland center in 
high school. John Rabai is the only ex- 
perienced defense man on the team, but 
several beginners are developing rapidly 
and will be needed to refill the gradua- 
tion-riddled defense. 


JVIar'iland's iq40 track team first felt 
the cinders on Ritchie Stadium on March 
9, a week before Easter, as Coach Cjeary 
Eppley brought out all returning varsity 
men from last year's strong squad. 

Those whose spike marks were not to 
be found in the track were Joe Peaslee, 
ace distance runner: Eddie Miller, South- 
ern Conference high-jump champ; and 
Hermie Evans, also a conference cham- 
pion in the hurelles. 

(^n the track Maryland had nothing to 
worry about, for the Liners had one of the 
best running teams in the countr\-. The 
sprints were handled b\- veterans L^ick 
Barnes and Alan Miller, with sophomores 
Jack Warfield and Elmer Rigb\ doing 
their share. In the middle distances

In the mile and two-mile grinds the 
Terps were well fortified with a mixture 
of old and new men. Mason Chronister 
and Bob Condon led the milers, while 
Tommy Fields in the two-mile race was 
the outstanding man. Sophomores Dick 
Sullivan and Randall Cronin alternated 
between the mile and two-mile, faring 
with above the average success. The bur- 
den of the hurdles fell on Bob Porter, 
Boyd Taliaferro, and Wylie Hopkins. 

Coach Eppley experienced his greatest 
trouble, for in the Greek events the Liners 
were weak, but with mainstays Charley 
Morris, Ralph Albarano, and Gordon 
Kluge, a winning combination was built. 

The neophytes for field events were 
coached by some former varsity man who 
excelled in that line. Pete Pfeiffer held 
class in the strength events, while Frank 
Cronin developed Bill Holbrook as pole 
vaulter. Frank Tilley, Boyd Taliaferro, 
and Frank Morris took over the broad 
jump and brought in their share of points.

On Saturday, March 30. four Terrapin 
aces, Tommy Fields, Jim Kehoe, Mason 
Chn^nistcr. and Alan Miller won the one- 
mile relay, the two-mile relay, and the 
one-mile team race at Gainesville, Florida. 
The Terps not only won but they set new 
meet records in the relays. 

.•\ week later the whole Terrapin squad

Maryland's runners were far too strong 
for the Techmen as they amassed point

Wednesday, April 10, found the Terps 
running in their own backyard against 
the Cadets of V.M.I. The Old Liners 
were never behind and came through to 
win easily by a score of 78 to 47. Gene 
Ochsenreiter and Jack Warfield kept the 
440 well in hand and finished one-two. In 
the 100-yard dash Dick Barnes edged 
out Bob Deaderick, VM. I . 's ace dash man.

far enough for first place. The next two 
marks belonged to Charley Morris and 
Ralph Albarano. Charley Morris then 
turned to the discus and heaved it enough 
to move up to top spot. Gordon Kluge 
took first for Maryland in the ja\elin. 


iiiE 1940 season saw the passing of 
what was undoubtedK' the finest tennis 
team e\er to represent the Uni\crsit\- of 
Maryland. With practically the entire 
squad back from last year and aided by 
two stellar sophomores, the netmen dis- 
played an array of talent nex'er equalled 

on the Terp courts, according to records. 
Three seniors, each of whom had com- 
pleted at least one undefeated season of 
competition, ended their collegiate tennis 
careers. These men were Allie Ritrenberg, 
Nate Askin, and Jay Phillips. Besides

Various attempts were made to organ- 
ize Latch Key on the Maryland campus 
in the past two decades, but somehow the 
enthusiasm which accompanied these ef- 
forts soon waned. However, the enlarge- 
ment of the athletic program brought 
home to the managers of the various 
teams the need for another effort toward 
organization for entertainment of their 
visitors. The modern Latch Key Society, 
a fraternity of varsity and junior man- 
agers, was initiated by Perry Hay, foot- 
ball manager in 1938. 

Since that time, Latch Key has grown 
to include thirty-nine managers and 
junior managers of ten sports; those of 
rifle, wrestling, and soccer were admitted 
last year. Jordan Sexton, junior manager 
of basketball, presided, with Bill Brendle,

The only black mark on the team's 
record was the result of the first match in 
foreign territory, when Rutgers spoiled 
the Liners' trip by defeating them 2b-8. 

In spite of gloomy predictions, the 
Terps came back from their Southern 
jaunt with the record of wins extended to 
six. Duke fell 21-1 1 to the cautious Terps,

squeezed through with a ib-14 win over

thirty-three straight matches. Losing but 
one of his bouts, Councill gave fine per-

this year's contests the team expects to 
better their already fine record next year.

of the Women's Athletic Association. 
Every sport ha^l its day as the calendar

fall the intraclass competition in hockey 
held the spotlight with the sophomores

ball held class interest too. an^l in a \ery 
successful afternoon, the sophomore, ju-

George Washington Uni\'ersity teams.

compensation for the dearth of intercol- 
legiate competition. 

The individual sports crowded the 
events calendar. Table tennis, badmin- 
ton, tennis, archery, golf, shuffleboard, 
darts, deck tennis, and riding — each had 
its day. Tournaments in each sport cre- 
ated interest among the coeds. This year 
credit was given for riding, as well as golf, 
archery, and tennis. Those girls interested 
in golf were fortunate in having Mr. Al 
Houghton, professional golfer from Beaver 
Dam Country Club, as special instructor. 

The little-mentioned coed fencing team 
gave a noteworthy exhibition this year. 
The members were handicapped by the 
difficulty of securing the Field House for 
practice. An invitation to join the ex- 
clusive Intercollegiate Fencing Associa- 
tion was final recognition of their cham- 
pionship ability.

b\ the local campusites. 

Spring added new zest to the Women's 
Athletic Association, and an expansion 
program of the whole organization was 

planned. Establishment of an honor 
society was the first idea to be carried 
out. This societ\- is to be composed of the 
officers of the W.A.A. and the managers 
of the \arious athletic teams, with the 
aim of furthering women's athletics on 
the campus and enlarging the mother 
club's activities.

secretary-treasurer; Frances Nordwall, 
recorder of points.

Trom T///8 ^iroup of ITlanjland IBeauties 

In the early days of June, 1939, when the editors of the 1940 Terrapin 
first met to place this volume into embryo, a unanimous desire to pre- 
sent a beauty section more effective than ever before was voiced by 
the staff. Without question a campus-wide poll plan was decided 
upon, and hence the task of nominating thirteen coeds to vie for 
the title of Miss Maryland was delegated to the entire student body. 
Then arose the problem of capturing the fullest beauty and char- 
acter of the choices. In their quest for a solution the Terrapin editors 
sought counsel of their technical advisers. As with one voice the reply 
came: "Josef Schiff can best portray and select your beauty queen." 


Josuj Sclujj, ruinous l^orlniU l^liolocfniphtT, chose 

W'nEN Josef Schiff, with his two able assistants, arrived and set- 
tled to his task with the quiet assurance that typifies the work of the 
great artist, any misgivings that observers may have entertained were 
quickly and thoroughly dispelled. For Mr, Schiff, employing the 
technique that has won for him photographic laurels both in America 
and abroad, passed an entire evening interviewing, testing lighting 
effects, suggesting coiffure, make-up, and costume for each of the 
thirteen contestants. Of this number, on the basis of personality and 
personal beauty, six were selected for individual portraiture, and one 
now reigns as Miss Maryland. Mr. Josef Schiff and the 1940 Terrapin 
therefore take pleasure in presenting on these pages Miss Maryland 
for 1940 and her court of honor.

. . . And Speaking of Features . . . 

JTrom its very simplicity of design and 
precision of execution does the symbolic 
interpretation of Maryland's progress 
which embellishes the cover and certain 
pages of this volume derive its effective- 
ness. Indeed, few artists might so com- 
pletely have captured the abstract quali- 
ties of such a subject as did Mr. Dale 
Nichols, who is recognized today as one 
of the foremost of America's design 
artists, painters, and illustrators. At 
regular intervals he has contributed illus- 
trations and cover designs for such stellar 
publications as The Commerce Magazine. 
Better Homes and Gardens, and The 
Phoenix Flame, and his paintings have 
been utilized in the acK'ertisements of 
such nationally-known products as Bauer 
and Black medical supplies and Certain- 
Teed structural materials. Likewise, Mr. 
Nichols is noted as a lecturer and writer, 
his present position as professor of art at 
the University of Illinois and his many 
published articles attesting to both facts. 

Hence, it is with no small measure of 
pride that the 1940 Terrapin presents as 
its keynote the ably-derived concept of 
progress by Mr. Dale Nichols. 

The illustrations of the new buildings in 
the view section of this book represent a 
relatively recent development in the field 
of illustration. So impressed with its 
effect were the editors of the Terrapin 
that they immediately sought someone 
capable of reproducing like sketches on 
the pages of their 1940 effort. Happily 
enough they found need to look no further 
than to their faculty adviser, Mr. O. 
Raymond Carrington, assistant profes- 
sor and illustrator assigned to the E.xten- 
sion Service of the University. Mr. Car- 
rington spent many hours artistically 
interpreting the actual details of the 
buildings. To him the Terrapin is in- 
debted for its presentation of the physical 
advancement of the campus. 


OU were an up per classman. You either be- 
came interested in certain definite curricular 
or extra-curricular activities, or you remained 
on the outer fringe and by dint of occasional 
"bouts with the books" simply hung on. 


With a new-found dignity and a burning ambition to 
succeed to the Senior's high offices in the ensuing 
year, the Junior plunged into his third year at Mary- 
land. Publications offered fertile fields for would-be 
editors, and the many campus clubs lent themselves 
readily to cultivation by Junior hopefuls. But honors 
as well as duties sought out the third-year under- 
graduate as campus honor societies started tapping 
ceremonies. And, of course, any Junior classman 
substantiated without hesitation his officers' claims 
that no social affair compared in brilliance to the 
Junior Promenade. 




Campus historians who, by their labors, re 
counted the highlights of 19 io on the pages of 
this volume formed the staff of . . . 

The Terrapin 

Robert C. Rice 

Jlvecent Terrapins ha\e become a far cry from the 
Re\'eilles and Terra Mariaes of the lJni\'ersit>- of Mary- 
land during the iq2o's and early 30's. Each of the re- 
cent editors has brought forth new features and expan- 
sion and revision of old ones. The general appearance 
and character of the books, howexer, have remained 
similar for a number of years. 

Following in the footsteps of these previous editors, 
the creators of the 1040 Terr.\pin added several nev\- 
features, notably the outstanding alumni pages, the 
use of pictures printc^l in colored ink, and the symbol 
of progress on the co\er created by Dale Nichols. Okl 
features, such as the heauty, \iew, an^l the fraternity 
sections were completely revised. 

Greater, however, than any of the changes or addi- 
tions was the revision of the contents of the book into 
four sections, representing the four classes. Previously, 
the book has been di\ided in sections, each independentof 
the other. The reorganization of the 1Q40 Terr.\pin was 
made with the belief that the continuit\ to i^c attained 
by logical arrangement and running copy would increase 
the readability and interest of the hook to a new lc\cl. 

The editors of the IQ40 Terr.apin sincerely hope that 
they have achieved the desired ends and pro^luccd a 
book exemplary of the i^rogress of the L'ni\ ersit\-.

Amid newsprint and ink, scathing editorials and 
meaty news, these people strove to meet dead' 
lines for the semi-weekly appearance of . . . 

The Diamondhac\ 

Allan C. FibHLR 

JVLaryland's semi-weekly strengthened its reputa- 
tion as one of the outstanding collegiate papers in this 
section of the country b\- a year of change and activity. 
Starting w ith the second issue in September, an entire 
new line of t\'pe was added, and the paper underwent a 
thorough streamlining. Caslon hold condensed replaced 
outmoded Gothic and Cheltenham type, which had 
been used for over a decade. Greater emphasis was 
placed on pictorial coverage of the news. 

In the editorial field the semi-weekly waged se\eral 
successful campaigns. .'\s outgrowths of editorial action 
an examination schedule for hour quizzes was instituted 
in the .Arts and Sciences college, rules go\erning exami- 
nation irregularities were tightenc^l. Dining Hall con- 
ditions were improved, ani.1 the lnterfraternit>' Council 
adopted a deferred rushing s>stem. An editorial criti- 
cizing radical elements in the .American "^Outh Congress 
attracted national publicits . 

Notable also was the successful cooixration between 
the Stu^lcnt GoNernment Association and its official 
newsorgan on a number of projects throughout the year. 

Following the policy of |"ire\ ious \ ears, staff members 
carried on their traditional friendly feui.! with the Old 
Line and inaugurated one with the Terrapin while still 
finding time to equal both ri\al publications in progress.

The Old Line 

Betty D. St. Clair 

iiiE Old Line started the season by publishing no 
statement of policy. These limitations set down in the 
first issue were closely followed, in fact, the most inner 
circle of the staff hadn't the slightest idea from one issue 
to the next whether the number coming up would be 
straight scissors from her worth\' contemporaries on 
other campi, or a sudden dart into the realm of unfor- 
gettable literature to comply with the agitation of a 
more serious element on the campus. The more serious 
element stopped reading beyond the tabic of contents 
about the month of November, and Ihe Old Line fell 
into a year of harmless fol dc rol that ga\X' no one the 
slightest offense or the slightest material for silent 

The editor came in now and then to see that no one 
was throwing lighted cigarette butts on the floor and to 
try to keep Kerwin models on the straight and narrow. 
One day she and Shipe were both in the office ut once, 
but as soon as the Terrapin picture was taken the 
happy combine was broken up. 

The hardest job of the year was keeping bright I \ luitn- 
orous in spite of the neighbors in the east. But \ irtuc 
will out, and soon even the Diamond back succumbed to 
the rosy contagion.

ivicspoNsiBiLi rv for the success of student publica- 
tions falls primarily on the shoulders of O. R. Carring- 
ton, adviser for the Terrapin, and Carlisle Humelsine, 
ad\'iser for the Old Line and Diamondback. Fhe ser\-ices 
of these two men in planning, soK ing |">roblems. and 
offering general acKice, pro\ed in\aluahle during the 
past year. 

Assisting the advisers are other members of the Pub-

Susan B. Harman, of the English Department; the 
president of the Student Government .A.ssociation, the 
heads of the Men's and Women's Leagues, and the edi-

Riding Club 

Riders Found Year-Round Fun 
With Maryland's Riding Club 

Om: i>r Maryland's most widely heralded or- 
ganizations, the Riding Club, was made up of a 
sizable group of fine horsemen and provided 
man\- hours of wholesome fun in the form of 
paper chases and morning hunts. 

A brisk ride in the early hours, climaxed by 
a hearty breakfast at the Sigma Nu house, put 
the equestrians in the proper spirit for Home- 
coming. Ic\- paths, snow banks, and freezing 
weather JIlI not dampen this spirit in the win- 
ter months which followed. 

Smoldering plans were brought into action 
in .April when the members of the club, in 
joint sponsorship with the V'annesville Dis- 
trict Horse Show Association, conducted a suc- 
cessful show here on the campus. Competition 
for club members took place in the morning, 
the afternoon haxing been given over to the 
visiting horsemen. A gold cui^i went to first 
place winner in each class as well as the cus- 
tomary blue ribbon. In all there were thirty 
events, including the selection of a champion 
from the Morgan horses entered by owners 
from this section of the countr\-.

Aleu's Glee Club 

Singers Toured Eastern Shore; 
Sang at Opening of World's Fair 

Ihe Men's Glee Club formally opened the 
music season for the University on December 
3 at Bethesda, where it sang before a capacity 
crowd for the benefit of the Community Chest. 
Later the organization participated in All- 
University Night, at which time it presented 
Fred Waring's arrangement of "The Night is 
Young. " 

In March, at the invitation of the Maryland 
Casualty Club, the Glee Club sang in Balti- 
more. March also ushered in the biggest musi- 
cal event of the year on the campus when 
Emma Otero, internationally-known Cuban 
soprano, and Dr. Frank LaForge, accompanist 
and voice instructor of world-famous singers, 
presented the student body with an evening 
of concert music. 

Because of a wonderful reception in 1938, 
the club decided to return to the Eastern Shore 

for its spring tour. Here it scored successful 
hits in the leading shore towns of Salisbury, 
Cambridge, Denton, and Annapolis. Immedi- 
ately following this tour, the Men's Glee Club 
of George Washington University, recent win- 
ners of the National Intercollegiate Glee Club 
Sing, met with the local club in a joint concert. 
Highlighting the club's activities of the cur- 
rent season was the in\itation to sing in the 
Equitable Gardens at the New >'ork World's 
Fair. This invitation was secured through the 
recommendation of several well-known music 
critics, among whom was Fred Waring, na- 
tionallv famous orchestra leader.

University Band Followed Teams, 
Presented Concerts on Campus 

Ihe Stui^lcnt Band lost no time organizing in 
the fall. By September it had to be ready to 
present "Sons of Old Maryland" to enthusi- 
astic rooters at Maryland's opening football 
game with Hampden-Sydne\'. 

The past year marked the thirteenth anni- 
\ersary of Sergeant Otto Siebeneichens expert 
direction. To him and to Major Chester West- 
fall, band adviser, go much credit for the pro- 
ficiency of this organization. 

In addition to College Park games, the band 
accompanied the team to Charlottesville for 

Papa and Paul 

the Uni\ersit\- of Virginia game, to Norfolk 
for the \ .Ml. game, to Rutgers at New Bruns-

organization to well over one hundred mem- 
bers may be attributed to the fact that their 
purpose and sole aim was to "splash for fun." 

Meetings were held twice each month at the 
beautiful Venetian Pool of the Shoreham 
Hotel. In addition to the usual swim, the 
members were given lessons in life saving and 
diving by competent officials. 

Once again the Gym-Armory was the scene 
of the annual club dance. This years affair 
was a great success because of the fine enter- 
tainment furnished by a local band. 

Late in the spring the club introduced a 

no\el entertainment in the way of a water 
show. As an added attraction, exhibition per- 
formances were given by several outstanding 
swimmers and divers from nearby Washing- 
ton. This affair was such a huge success that 
it promises to be an annual one. 

A most successful season was clima.xed May 
fifteenth when members and dates journeyed 
to Beverly Beach for an afternoon of swim- 
ming and an evening of dancing.

Jewish Services Established 
on Campus by Rabbi Pilchik 

Under the guidance of Rabbi Ely E. Pilchik, 
Hillel House, an organization sponsored by the 
Hebrew fraternal order B'nai B'rith, made its 
appearance this year on the Maryland campus. 
A counterpart of a movement established 
on thirty other large campi, Hillel's objective 

was to supplement the Jewish student's uni- 
versity training with the cultural and spiritual 
expressions of his people. Toward this end re- 
ligious services were conducted on the Sabbath 
and Jewish holidays, and classes in Hebrew 
and Jewish history were inaugurated. 

Rabbi Pilchik was assisted by heads of the 
Jewish fraternities and sororities and five un- 
affiliated Jewish students.

Grant for Student Center Fund 
Secured from S.G.A. by Daydodgers 

When the recently combined men's and

nic in Rock Creek Park, the new members had 
the opportunity to become acquainted with 
the officers : Betsy Ross, president ; Lida Sar- 
geant, vice-president ; Bessie Arnold, secretary ; 
and Paul Edwards, treasurer. 

Among the social activities was a dance for 
the "members given in the Field House, and 
clever decorations admirably carried out the 
Christmas theme. Between semesters a wiener 
roast was held in Sligo Cabin. In February, 
the proverbial leap-year dance was given with 
the young ladies showering the gentlemen with 
much-welcomed attentions. For the April 
meeting Howard Cromwell, social chairman, 
planned another picnic, and as its concluding 
function, the club gave a formal farewell dance.

Footlight Club 

Footlighters Expanded Activity 
to Radio; Presented Four Plays 

JToR ten successful seasons the Footlight Club 
has held to a time-honored standard of praise- 
worthy student acting and play production. 
Lack of adequate facilities has not killed the 
Muse, and this season the club continued as a 
\ibrant and active organization. 

Under the leadership of L)a\ id Seidel, with 
Alan Waite serving as vice-president, Sugar 
Langford as secretary, and Cjino \ alcnti as 
treasurer, the club found time between re- 
hearsals to sponsor lecturers on the art of ap- 
plying make-up and design. 

The initial production of the season, under 
the capable direction of Ralph I. Williams, 
was the melodrama Double Door by Elizabeth 
McFadden, memorable not only for Mary 
Zurhorst's fine performance, but for the dis- 
covery of a star in freshman Aria Guild. Mar>-

gave a convincing characterization of Mar-

The character acting of Tommy St. Clair in 
the part of the elderly and narrow-minded 
aunt, Hester Fairfield, was exceptional. Dave

The only operatic production of the year 
was Gilbert and Sullivan's "Trial by Jury." 
A satire on courts of law, the story dealt with 
a breach of promise suit. Baritone judge Jake 
Powell willingly consented to marry plaintiff 
Marian Bond, in order to adjourn the trial. 
Sharing the masculine lead with the judge was 
the fickle defendant Victor Buhl. Other im-

Charles Jones, and Robert BuUard. Ten 
bridesmaids and twelve jurors rounded out 
the cast. Production was handled by Clef and

JjETWEEN the acts of the Hrst and last pla\s 
of the season the curtains were parted by Pres- 
ident Judy Greenwood, who proceeded with 
the customary tapping for Alpha Psi Omega. 
She enumerated the requirements for member- 
ship in the honorar\-. It is necessary that a 
prospecti\e member shall have taken several 
minor parts, or two leading parts combined 
with a minor. Underlying the selection is, of 
course, the demonstration of outstanding dra- 
matic ability. 

Alpha Psi Omega contributed toward the 
furtherance of campus dramatics. This \ear 
the members functioned primarily as a play- 
reading committee. They studied and made 
reports on a number of plays to the Footlight 
Club and thus eliminated the confusion which 
had formerly arisen when all footlighters un- 
dertook the readings. 

The dance which Alpha Psi Omega ga\e to 
the Footlight Club was new in the history of 
both organizations, but its success made it a 
possible tradition.

In addition to the regular discussions, the

Future Farmers 

Members Enjoyed Active Season; 
"Ag" Clubs Joined in Barn Dance 

Ihose agricultural students who expected to 
teach vocational agriculture in high schools 
were members of the collegiate chapter of the 
Future Farmers of America . 

A float in the Homecoming Day parade 
inaugurated an unusually active season un- 
der the leadership of Louis Ahalt, president;

Trail Club 

Terrapin Trailers ^'isited Scenic 
vSpots in Neighboring States 

On with the hiking shoes and off to new roads 
of adventure. Thus, the Terrapin Trail Club 
began the 1939 40 season hikes, outdoor 
roasts, and overnight jaunts. 

The trailers sought out the mysteries of 
Turkey Run, Devils Den, and the Frederick 
City Water Shed. The overnight visit to Pine 
Grove Furnace, located in Pennsylvania's 
Piney Mountain, was so interesting that the 
club made a similar trii'i to bdizabcth lurnace 
in \ irginia. Washington's Birthday saw the 
University group joincvl b\ the Mountain 
Club of Baltimore. Together they went to 
Valley Forge, where they climbed the lookout 
tower and clambered o\'er historic trenches. 

Officers of the club were: John Secrest, 
president; Orville Greenwood, vice-president; 
(jeorgianna Calver, secretary; and Edward 
Rehberger, Jr., treasurer. The trailers were 
fortunate in having Dr. and Mrs. Herman 
duBuy as their advisers. These two spent many 

hours assisting the members with their plans, 
and accompanied them on their journeys. 

The club members became ci\ic minded 
and combined business with pleasure when 
they helped the local botanists prepare flora of 
the District of Columbia and \icinity. Lest 
the foreign exploits of the club give the impres- 
sion that its home grounds held no enchant- 
ment, the extremely successful Halloween and 
\ alentine Day parties must be mentioned.

The Junior Class 

Back row: Johnson, X'alenti. 
Front row: Boose, Davis, Powers. 


LARGE group of wide-eyed young stu- 
dents made their first appearance on Mary- 
land's campus in the fall of 1937, not realizing 
that collectively they comprised what was to 
go down in the history of the University as the 
Class of 1 94 1 . After choosing maroon and gray 
for its colors, the class administered a healthy 
drenching to the sophomores in the annual 
struggle at Paint Branch. 

Surviving the onslaught of the Greeks and 
successfully meeting the demands of the fac- 
ulty, the class moved on to its second semester 
of academic experience and held a 
Freshman Frolic, at which Marylanders 
swung out to the tunes of Zel Smith 
and his orchestra. 

Sophomore year recalls many vivid 
memories to the Class of "41. The 
group distinguished itself by sending 
the new crop of freshmen to a watery 
defeat in the tug-of-war. The Sopho- 
more Prom was unique because of the 
music furnished by Janice Williams and 
her all-girl orchestra. The class organ- 
ized a committee which worked to se- 
cure better facilities for the dayclodgers. 

Its members achieved prominence in scholastic 
and athletic endeavors and figured conspicu- 
ously in campus activities. 

With half their college careers behind them, 
the '4 1 students advanced a notch and became 
full-fledged juniors. For the third time they 
chose Frank Davis as their president. Other 
officers were: Gino Valenti, vice-president; 
Barbara Boose, secretary; Dave Johnson, 
treasurer; Elizabeth Powers, historian; Fran- 
ces Rosenbusch, women's representative ; Rob- 
ert Rice, mens representative.

Smiting leaders jb/t/xi/t' to prom 

After weeks of harJ work anJ cautious 
preparation, the junior Class presented 
the crowning social event of the year — its 
annual "Prom" to the Seniors. The affair 
was held in the grand ballroom of the 
Willard Hotel in Washington with Glen 
Gray and his Casa Lomas providing their 
danceable tunes. 

The promenade was led by Cjene Och- 
senreiter with Nancy King, and class 

President I'rank Da\is. accompanied by 
Libby Powers. 

Icaturc of the evening for man\ of the 
prom goers was the sparkling music of- 
fered by Gray. With such stars as "Sonny" 
Dunham, MacGershon, and Johnn\- 
Hutchinson. Cjlen proceeded to thrill the 
crowd with one w,ell-organi~ed piece after 
another. Mr. Ciray s handsome counte- 
nance drew the plau^lits of the coeds and 
his signature was in constant dcmani.1. 
I he musical highlight of the e\'ening was 
Dunham's splendid work on the trumpet 
in "Memories of ^ ou." 

The dance was chaperoned by the fol- 
lowing members of the faculty : Colonel 
and Mrs. Thomas D. Finley, Doctor and 
Mrs. J. E. Faber, Doctor and Mrs. Ronald 
Bamford. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Williams, 
Doctor and Mrs. Le\in B. Broughton, 
and Mr. and Mrs. George F. Pollock. 
However, man\ more faculty members 
attended the dance and enjoyed it to the 

Glen Gray admirers gather 'round 


Promenade's last lap 

Assisting Chairman Ochsenreiter were 
the following committee heads: John 
Brinckerhoff, dance committee; Judy 
Woodring and Douglass Casseil, co-chair- 
men of the bid committee; Charles Allen, 
promenade committee; Marguerite Hall, 
chaperon committee. To these chairmen 
and their committees goes credit for an 
unforgettable prom. Handsome pendants 
bearing the Maryland seal, and colorful 
programs were souvenirs of the evening. 

With one lingering glance over three 
years packed full of experiences, the Ju- 
niors turn to meet the coming year when 
they will complete the last of their under- 
graduate days. '-■

that now confronted you.

leaders, each of whom in his turn briefly 
explained to the freshmen the organiza- 
tion which he representeci 

One of the first projects introduce!.! was 


the supervision of freshmen elections. It 
inaugurated stump speeches whereby 
freshmen were able to gather some idea 
of the abilities and qualifications of their 
class-officer candidates. The S.G.A. was 
prompt in conducting a thorough and fair 
investigation of the student bookstore 
situation. As a result of this inquiry, the 
price of all books was reduced by ten per 
cent. After campaigning for a better ex- 
amination schedule for an entire semes- 
ter, the organization gained its point in 
February with the announcement of a 
standard examination schedule in the 
College of Arts and Sciences. 

The Student Government Association 
sponsored a "Charlie Keller Day" in 
honor of the new king of the big leagues. 
Charlie, one of Maryland's most famous 

alumni, was honored by a luncheon, a re- 
view, and an informal student rally. Then 
President Coleman presented him with a 
trophy on behalf of the student body. 

The Men's and Women s Leagues, with 
the sponsorship of the S.G.A. , headed an 
investigation of conditions in the Univer- 
sity Dining Hall. As a result a new order 
was instituted for the students through 
the aid of Ralph Williams, assistant dean 
of men, and a measure of satisfaction was 
achieved by the close of the year. 

The S.G.A. determined to bring to 
prominence the endemic Student Union 
problem. By appropriating more than 
fourteen hundred dollars, the Association 
instituted a drive to interest the admin- 
istration and alumni in furnishing further 
funds for the proposed building.

Willi the great increase of resident

dormitories and dining hall became an 
important one lor the Men's League. 
Ho\ve\er. with the cooperation of the 
students, the task was well administered. 

The "dorm"' students received a real 
treat this \ear when the school appro- 
priated funds for three recreation rooms 
in Calvert Hall w hich were equippc^l with 
tile floors, card tables, chairs, lounges,

In an effort to promote good will among 
the members of the student bod\'. man\' 
new policies were instigated. .A. dormitor\- 
intramural league was formed, in\iting 
competition between the \'arious sections 
in football, basketball, and \olleyball.

The Military Department, under its 
new professor of Military Science and 
Tactics, Lt. Colonel Thomas D. I"inlc\. 
completed another highly successful year, 
with an enrollment greater than e\'er 

The regiment started operations last 
fall at a strength of just under 1,300, of 
which t)5 were Senior cadet officers and 
81 were Junior sergeants. Casualties suf- 
fered in mid-year engagements brought 
its number down to about i ,200. 

Interest in their work was manifested 
by all classes, by "basics" in ranks as well 
as by those in command. In line with well 
established tradition here, instructors 

7 he Colonel at ease 

A lesson in tactics 

constantly sought to produce results 
through cooperation rather than coercion. 
Members of the ROTC were impressed 
with the idea that they were students of 
methods of militar\' training and dis- 

On the ^Irill (ickl. responsibility lor the 
instruction ani.1 drilling of the regiment 
was placed upon the shoulders of the 
cadet officers. B\ this means they ob- 
tained practical experience in leadership 
and the exercise of command and so quali- 
fied in these important respects for com- 
missions as reserve officers. The depart- 
ment was fortunate in having among its 
advanced students a large number of men 
prominent in athletics and other campus 
activities. Such men were used to leader-

ship and teamwork, and quickly de- 
veloped into capable commanders. 

Under their orders, and with the men 
in ranks animated by the spirit of playing 
the game, the regiment achieved the 
standard of a snappy, well drilled organ- 
ization. Parades and reviews given for 
distinguished visitors throughout the year 
brought credit to the unit and University. 
The regiment looked forward to the an- 
nual War Department inspection and 
Military Day, hopeful that the "excel- 
lent" rating, earned for many consecutive 
years, would again be awarded. 

From what he sees, the outsider may 
believe that the ROTC is principally con- 
cerned with marching about the drill field 
and parading to martial music. As a mat- 
ter of fact, this is but a minor feature of 
the course in military training which, over 

a four-year period supplemented by six 
weeks in camp, acquaints its graduates 
with all the duties of an infantry lieuten- 
ant in peace or war. Illustrative of the 
value of this training is the fact that two 
cadets have been recommended for direct 
commission in the Regular Army and 
others in the Marine Corps. 

The University of Maryland ROTC has 
four times received the highest rating in 
the corps area, as evidenced by the blue 
stars on the sleeve of each cadet. This 
honor has been bestowed on the unit as a 
result of its fine performance on Military 
Day of all types of drill ranging from the 
manual of arms to the pitching of tents. 

In rifle competition the unit has shown 
outstanding prowess, and Colonel Fin- 
ley's office is filled with awards won by the 
ROTC team in the past several years.

M A cheer for Charlie 

wIaryland's own Charlie Keller, World 
Series hero and New York Yankee star, 
returned to his Alma Mater on October 19 
to receive tribute from the University stu- 
dent body. The former Terp star grad- 
uated from the University in 1937. 

The Charlie Keller Day celebration 
began with a luncheon in his honor at 
which time old members of the baseball 
team who played with Charlie were pres- 
ent. Following the luncheon, Keller, Dr. 
Byrd, Lt. Colonel Finley, and other 
guests reviewed the ROTC regiment. 

After the review, short speeches were 
made by the guests of honor. Burton 
Shipley, Maryland's baseball coach, mod- 
estly expounded on the part he played in 
the young outfielder's success. Tom Cole- 
man, president of the S.G.A., then pre- 
sented Keller with a trophy on behalf of 
the student body. 

The afternoon's celebration wound up 
with an informal gathering of the students 
around the reviewing stand cheering Keller 
and singing "Sons of Old Maryland."

r UP tents mushrooming on the campus 
and soldiers in dungarees marching over 
the hill armed with wooden guns and 
swords were signs that junior pledges 
were being initiated into the national mil- 
itary society, Scabbard and Blade. 

The Maryland chapter of Scabbard and 
Blade, in addition to training the mem- 
bers of Pershing Rifles, represented the 
national organization at ceremonies con- 
ducted at Arlington in October, and pre- 
sented the Military Ball in the Gym- 
Armory in February. The members were 
busy throughout the year formulating 
plans for the four-day national conven- 
tion to be held on campus in November. 

At the first tapping this year, Major 
Griswold, Colonel Finley, and Major 
Wysor were inducted. Another tapping 
was held in the spring. 

Scabbard and Blade was headed by 
Capt. Thomas Riley. He was assisted 
by First Lieut. Merle Preble and Thirst 
Sgt. William Souder. 

Military Ball 

vJn- the eve of George Washington's 
Birthday, martial law invaded the Mar>- 
land campus as both men and women 
students mobilized in the Gym-Armory 
for the annual Military Ball. Uniforms 
were the order of the day and all swains 
were attired either in the khaki which 
they wore while trudging over the drill

nasium, appropriately decorated with 
American flags, tri-colored banners, and 
blue bunting, fairly bristled w ith the plain 
and fancy ammunition which stood omi- 
nously on the side lines of the dance floor. 
The sole unmilitaristic feature of the eve- 
ning was the Rolling Kh\thm of jack

Lady to jud\' ( recei\xxl com-

evening, but a beautiful bouquet ol red 
roses was presented to the Regimental 
Sponsor, Louise Mercer, at the beginning 
of the Cirand March. Climax of the ball 
came when promcnadcrs. headed by Col. 
Merle Preble with Miss Mercer, and Lieut. 
Colonel Thomas Coleman with Tillie

tors as Governor O'Conor, the Pershing 
Rifles, since their organization on this 
campus in 1935, have been an outstand- 
ing group at all important campus func- 
tions. Under the captaincy of Thomas 
W. Riley and his staff, composed of 
Robert Langhead, First Lieutenant, and 
John C. Marzolf, Thomas Watson and 
John Reckord, Second Lieutenants, the 
Pershing Rifles have grown steadily in 
number and in activity participation. 

Fall initiation exercises held at Fort 
Meade were followed by an inspection 
tour of the grounds where the initiates 
gained an insight of military life. Spring 
initiation brought the number of the unit 
to ninety men and five officers. 

Climaxing a year of extensive drill and 
practice, the unit presented its familiar 
"Zouave Drill" at All-University Night. 
The annual banquet and spring dance 
concluded the 1940 season of activity.

x\ CRITERION of excellent scholarship 
has limited membership in Phi Kappa 
Phi, honorary scholastic fraternity, to a 
chosen few. Members of the organization 
were selected twice during the school year. 
In the fall the top-ranking senior of each 
college was tapped, and in June seniors 
who stood in the upper eighth of the grad- 
uating class were made members. 

Encouraging fine scholarship and aid- 
ing in the development of character are 
the basic ideals of the fraternity. To fos- 
ter those aims and to stimulate further 
achievement in graduate work, several 
fellowships have been offered each year to 
deserving Phi Kappa Phis. \n this man- 
ner the traditions of the fraternity have 
been perpetuated. 

Through the bonds of membership the 
alumni have continued their associations 
with the University and have contributed 
encouragement and interest to the achiev- 
ments of the active college group.

XiME, tide, and graduation wait for no 
man. Yesterday six hundred timid high 
school graduates arrived at College Park 
to acquire training that was to last them 
a lifetime. Today they leave this impor- 
tant chapter in their li\cs to return to a 
world apart from cokes, bull sessions, 
pledge pins, and Rossbourgs. 

In the fall of thirty-six, Bob Lodge 
of Baltimore captained the tribe of 
eager rats and mice. Theirs was the 
spirit of the oLI guard — nights of 
praying for rain, days of cow-towing 
to sophomores, an(.l then the last 
glorious showdown on the water 
tower. When the battle-scarred old 
landmark was dismantled that year, 
it was the big gold '40 that went 
down with it. 

A year passed and Carl Goller in- 
herited the presidency of the Sopho- 
more Class. New LTeshmen dragge^l 

The Seniors 

the second yearlings through the mud on 
struggle day, but they came through w ith 
newly acquired dignity. Classes were no 
longer a grim duty but began to take on a 
certain amount of interest. 

Next year, as upperclassmen. Tom 
Coleman was elected president. The old 
Rossbourg Inn was restored to its former 
colonial dignity, and e\'ery week brought 
plans for new buildings on campus. George 
Lawrence led the Prom to the music of 
Eddie Duchin. Mortar Board tapped ten 
girls, more than ever before in the history 
of the chapter. 

And so they came to their swan song. 
Bill Brown took over the reins for the last 
year. New buildings sprang up o\-ernight 
on every available spot on the hill .\bout 
March that aw ful lump-in-the-throat sen- 
sation began to crop up as the last page 
was turned. 

And then — -it was June Week and the 
colorful chapter entitled Maryland was

J UNE Week burst upon the Senior — seven days of joyous activity. With it rode the last 
vestige of collegiate days, an embodiment of class spirit, a recollection of happy social life, 
a realization of greater attainment. Thus fortified, the graduate accepted his diploma and 
strode forth from the protective portals of his Alma Mater.

The Program 

June Week with its series of picnics, 
banquets, and dances was held this year 
— contrary to its name — in the last week 
of May. Although it was last, it was in no 
way less wonderful than the other activi- 
ties on the University's social calendar. 
The Seniors mingled their final taste of 
"campus capers" with a hit of sadness; 
the undergraduates enjoyed to the high- 
est degree the last formal functions before 
their long summer vacation. 

Coming at the end of finals with all of 
the cramming, dateless nights, and wor- 
ries which accompany them, the activi- 
ties were supported with a spirit even 
more gay and enthusiastic than usual. 

Climaxing this period of gaiety came 
the solemn and memorable commence- 
ment exercises with the long desired di- 
plomas, symbols of all that college has 
meant to the graduates. 


. . . And on to Greater Heights 

Into a realm of practical endeavor each year steps a new senior class, some few of its num- 
ber destined to rise to heights of greatness and to bring honor to their University. This 
section is dedicated to six of Maryland's sons who have so distinguished themselves. 



i lit-: Class of igio of the Uni\crsit\ Law School claims 
as its most illustrious member the first citizen of Mary- 
land, Cjoxernor Herbert R. O'Conor, Admitted to the 
bar in iqic), before his graduation, Governor (^"Conor 
progressed successively through the offices of State's At- 
torney, People's Counsel to the Public Service Commis- 
sion, and Attorney General of the State, He rose to his 
present high position in 1938. 


VERSATILITY is a fortc of Millard Tydings, three times 
United States Senator from the State of Maryland, for his 
political career is rather well removed from his under- 
graduate Engineering days and from the journalistic ten- 
dencies he displayed as editor of the first campus news- 
paper, the igio Triangle. By way of further <.livergence, 
he was recipient of an honorarv degree of LL 1). Irom his 
Alma Mater in 1937, 



Dr. 1 l.\RRY Clifton Byrd, [progressive president of the 
Universit\-, has been one of the most outstanding alumni 
of the institution. .\ member of the Class of 1908, College 
of Engineering, "CurK" made his mark as a student ath- 
lete and then won laurels as a minor league baseball 
|■^la\er. successful track ani.1 football coach, and Director 
of .Athletics at Maryland. I'rom these positions he rose to 
assistant to the president, vice-president, and finally 
presi^lcnt in 19^- 



OoLLEGiATE diamond or major league baseball park ap- 
pear alike to "Our Boy Charlie" Keller, star of the 1939 
World Series in his first year with the New ^'ork 'Yankees. 
More cherished for Marylanders, however, are memories 
of his feats as mainstay of the Old Line baseball team and 
as all-state basketball star of 1937. Charlie received his 
diploma from the College of Agriculture in 1938. 



jNot so long ago on the University campus dwelt Munro 
Leaf, a young man destined to capture the fancy of the 
nation with his whimsical tales of Ferdinand the Bull, 
Noodle, Manners Can Be Fun. and the Watching Bird. 
Graduates of 1927 remember him as treasurer of their 
class, an ROTC captain, and a member of the lacrosse 
team. Kappa Alpha claims him as a brother. 



It is a far cry from the days of football player "Pug" 
Mayo, Engineering student of the Class of 1904, to the 
title of President Edmund C. Mayo of the Gorham Silver 
Company ; yet such is the story of his achievement. Tan- 
gible evidence of Mr. Mayo's continued respect for Mary- 
land tradition lies in his company's bronze cast of the 
Terrapin which guards the Coliseum. 


Here Are Some Extras the Camera Caught 


But Tou Should Have Seen the Ones That Got Away 



Lo the 1940 Terrapin staff, possessor of fessional associates for technical ad\ice or 

onK' a limited knowledge of the vagaries of experienced criticism of their undertakings, 

publication work, the road from preliminary The realization that a patient, capable reply 

planning to ultimate completion of its effort would be forthcoming remained always as a 

stretched out long and rocky. I"requently, comforting thought. In appreciation of their 

during the year-long preparation, did the stu- kind cooperation this page is dedicated to 

dent editors turn to their advisers and pro- those friends of the i94oTerrapi.\.

on printing, his patience w ith a sometimes delinquent staff, and his persc^nal interest in the success

est and assistance in helping the Ti-.rrapin soke its 1^140 cover problem ;
