We have dedicated this 

volume of the Terrapin to a theme of influences, those influences which 
the University of Maryland exerts upon its students, and through them, 
upon their communities, states, and finally, the nation. 


his life around that single word. It is the fountain of youth, the lodestone 
of the eternal, the hope of generations yet unborn. When a madman de- 
stroys the world we know, those of us who are left sigh and patiently go 
to work rebuilding for our children and our children's children. 

To build for the future, we must know how to build, we must have 
the right tools with which to build, we must educate ourselves that we may 
leave a firm foundation for those who will follow. No building was ever 
erected, no great work of literature written in a year or a hundred years. 
Progress is the result of a thousand, ten thousand years of unremitting toil 
as man dragged himself out of the primeval ooze into the dawn of civili- 

The University of Maryland is dedicated to progress. We have here 
a melting pot for the culture, the learning of this hemisphere and of the 
Europe that was. The nation has sent us her engineers, her businessmen, 
her poets, her scientists, and her administrators, and together they have 
welded a great university. She has sent us, too, her boys and girls. They 
have come from every state in the Union, from South America, and from 
across the seas. They have all been different, and yet they have all been 
alike in that they have carried as their key to the university's gates the 
desire, the willingness to learn. They have come to us as boys and girls and 
we have returned them, each to his own place, men and women, wiser 
perhaps, and at least prepared to take up their share of tomorrow's work, 
to shoulder their part of the burden of life. 

Wherever they go, a part of the university goes with them. Con- 
versely, each of them has left an indelible imprint of himself on the uni- 
versity, its life, and its customs. For good or evil, the University of Mary- 
land draws its life blood from the great cities, the farms, the villages, from 
every place and station in life. Wc keep that life blood, the youth of 

America, for a little while, and then return it, laden with life for the 
future, for man's upward climb into the bright, new day. 

We, therefore, dedicate this book to the same theme to which, by its 
very nature, the university has been dedicated. The thread that weaves 
these pages into a single tapestry is one of influences, influences beginning 
at the university and slowly widening, in ever-expanding circles until they 
encompass the nation, perhaps the earth. These are the immediate in- 
fluences one center of learning has upon the world. Multiply them a 
thousand fold, send them forth, and progress follows with enlightenment 
in its train, enlightenment for a world that sorely needs it. To these basic 
principles we have dedicated this book in the hope that men may someday 
take them up and carry them forward as they now carry the battle flags of 
embitfigred nations.

Dr. Harry Clifton Byrd 

LJr. H. C. Byrd. A president who hclie\'cs that the most successtul administration 
is that which is the best servant; who places his confidence in the loyalties and abilities ot those with 
whom he works; who regards himself not as one who directs, but as one who works with others in a 
common cause; who believes that research provides a background tor education, but that the de\'elop- 
ment of leaders is the primary objective of the University; who regards the University as an agency 
operated for the benefit of the students, ultimately that America shall have a higher type of citizenship; 
and it is because these purposes have been translated into action, and have received a wholehearted 
response from students and faculty alike, that the University has grown so rapidly in the life of Maryland 
and the nation.

Ihe College of Arts and Sciences, 
most heterogeneous of the colleges, crains ics scu- 
dents for many fields of endcax'or and service. 
Though i: stresses the Itheral arts and sciences, 
courses are practical, leading to definite careers. 

The college influences its students in many 
ways, leading some to choose careers in social 
service work, some in the sciences, some in law 
and medicine, some in pyschology, and others in 
the liberal arts. Outstanding educators in many 
fields hax'e gathered under the banner oi the col- 
lege to impart some ot their knowledge to the 
students and to teach them to lead useful lives. 

Whatexer courses the students take they are 
prepared to be ot some service to their university, 
their state, and the nation. Some remain to do

to the professional schools to continue their train- 
ing. Still others go into business and industry, and 
more than a few are taken into the armed services. 
They are well prepared to extend the influences of 
their college and of the University of Maryland 
throughout the nation.

Ihe College of Engineering is de- 
voted to the teaching of the latest methods and 
practices in all of the fields of engineering includ- 
ing several comparatively new branches. 

Engineering has always been an important 
factor in the advance of civilization, and it is even 
more so today. The nation is crying for well- 
trained engineers who have the ability to speed 
production, and to develop new, improved engi- 
neering techniques. 

The College of Engineering has kept abreast of 
the trends in the field, and its influence will be 
felt throughout the profession, aiding in the war 
eflFort and carrying on the advance of civilization 
after the destructive influences cease.

iNo PHASE OF THE WORK ac tlic Uni- 
versity comes in closer contact with the people 
of Maryland than that of the College of Agricul- 
ture which has been especially busy during the 
last year in cooperation with federal and state 
agencies in the "all-out" crtort lor increased food 

From the standpoint ot the student the strength 
of the College of Agriculture lies in the fact that 
there is a very close coordination between the in- 
structional, research, extension, and regulatory 
functions within the \'arious departments. Those 
who give instruction to the students are closely 
associated with these various branches of service 
and in many cases devote a portion ol chcir time 
to one or more ol these acti\'ities. 

This close coordination of instructional, re- 
search, extension, and regulattiry Vv'ork results in 
a stronger facult)' and a higher degree of speciali- 
zation than would luhcrwisc be possible. It in-

sures an opportunity for instructors to be informed 
on the latest results in research and to be in touch 
constantly with current trends and problems. As 
a result of this students are kept in close contact 
with the frontiers of development in the various 
agricultural fields and they in turn are enabled to 
apply what they have learned to the field of prac- 
tical agriculture.

concentrated on better nutrition 

Dean Marie M. Mount 

Ihe College of Home Economics, with 
its many professional and homemaking phases, 
is becoming increasingly important. It equips the 
students with the knowledge and techniques neces- 
sary to provide better nutrition for the nation, 
solve clothing and textile problems, teach home 
economics, and carry on research and extension. 
Women in home economics are needed in prac- 
tically every field of defense. Equally, if not more 
important than professional training, the college 
provides a sound homemaking education. The 
homes made strong by the homemakers build 
good communities. They in turn reflect on the 
state and the state on the nation.

Through its graduates, the College of Com- 
merce is exerting a strong influence in the held ot 
commerce and industry in Maryland and other

mendous influences, perhaps, in a less tangible 
way than some of the other colleges, on its stu- 


dents and through thcni, in the field of education, 
both primary and secondary, throughout the state

hi a nation at war education takes one of the 
most vital roles in the entire mechanism of society. 
Education is society's assurance that there will be 
a future and to this end the College of Education 

bends its eflorts. The college concentrates upon 
instructing its students in the latest educational 
methods so that in turn they can go out and teach 
the younger generation with maximum effective- 
ness. As these students scatter over the nation 
they carry the influences of the University of 
Maryland with them to America's youth.

schooled vocational service to become a vital part 
of the medical profession of which we are justly 
proud; and today, more so than ever, the gradu- 
ates of the University School of Nursing are faced 
with the vital problem of caring for the sick and 
the wounded. It is through these students that 
the influence of the state will be felt by the nation. 
This influence will be felt not only by the residents 
of the cities and towns in which the graduates 
make their homes, but also by the men of the 
armed services of the United States. The Base 
Unit No. 2, organized by the University Hospital 
for overseas duty, has already left for the Far 
Eastern Front. 

In order to enter more forcefully into the cur-

its training course, which has come to be one of 
the finest of its type in the country. Chief factor 
of the new program is the moving up of the State

complete successfully before she can practice

Ihe most important action of the 
Student Government Association this year was 
the establishment of a Student Defense Council. 
This council sponsored the collections of waste 
paper from the students and gave a series of after- 
noon tea dances and one evening affair, the pro- 
ceeds of which went to the Defense Fund. The 
S.G.A. also drafted a reorganized plan of student

the May Day ceremonies and received special 
funds to finance the occasion. The establishment 
of an organized social calendar created a system 
whereby all social events were signed up on the 
social calendar at the start of the school year. 

On Homecoming Day, the S.G.A. accepted 
from the Class of 1910 the new gate located be- 
tween the Rossborough Inn and the Dairy Build- 
ing, and, on the same day, sponsored the Home- 
coming Parade and the crowning of the beauty 
queen between halves of the football game. Dur- 
ing the spring, representatives of Student Govern- 
ment Associations from Maine to Virginia held 
their annual convention here. Our S.G.A. played 
host to this gathering. Mainly responsible for the 
success of the Student Government Association 
this year was President William Holbrook, as- 
sisted by Larry MacKenzie, vice-president; and 
Mary Ann Griffith, secretary-treasurer. Other 
members of the S.G.A. included the presidents 
and secretaries of all four classes, presidents of 
the Panhellenic Council, hiterfraternity Council, 
O.D.K., Women's League, Men's League, Mor- 
tar Board, and the editor of the student paper.

Ihis YEAk the Men's League scrayed 
into greener fields and spread its innucncc cncr 
the entire men's student hcidy uhcn it acquired a 
representative from each class as well as trom the 
Interfraternity Council. In past years the league 
had kept its fatherly eye on the dormitories alone. 
Through its new contacts with the classes and the 
fraternities the league has kept a check on the prob- 
lems of all men enrolled in the university. How- 
ever, as usual the main part of the organization's 
time was devoted to the maintenance of discipline 
in the men's dorms. 

Working with the administration and student 
publicity director Judson Bell, the league success- 

fully conducted a campaign to stop the rackets 
used to extort money from the freshmen. In con- 
junction with the work of the Student Defense 
Council the league appointed student air-raid 
wardens to act as aids to the Student Assistants 
in the dormitories in case ol an air raid, and also 
helped the council in the collection of waste paper 
and books Irom the dorm dwellers. 

A trophy to be awarded annually to the most 
outstanding man in intramural athletics was intro- 
duced this year with the hope that this au'ard will 
become a permanent award in the uni\ersity. 

The social e\ent of the year lor the Men's 
League was their spring dance held in the dym- 
Armory. Other entertainment during the year 
included movies shown lii the men's dormitories. 

Robert Searls headed the group for the year and 
the league representatives were Charles Davis, 
Bill Krehnbrink, Thomas Galbreath, James Forbes, 
and John Eichnor, who left school in February and 
was replaced by Don Shurholz. 



Ihe Women's League was organized 
CO encourage cooperation among all women stu- 
dents on campus and to set up a governing system 
which would allow each girl a chance to live hap- 
pily in the group. The league made the rules which 
govern all women students and it enforced these 
rules by trying the violators and penalizing them. 
The league's activities were not confined to mak- 
ing rules, however, but it planned a program 
aimed at campus improvement. 

This year for the first time the league provided 
a community Christmas tree. A series of lectures 
on Vocational Guidance were given in the spring, 

the purpose of which was to acquaint students 
with opportunities open to them in various fields. 
Four women, outstanding in their respective vo- 
cations, were asked to speak on Nursing, Secre- 
tarial work. Social Service work, and Home Eco- 
nomics. The league also sponsored a very success- 
ful campus "clean-up" campaign. The members 
equipped with sticks and wascebaskets paraded 
in formation over the campus and picked up all 
waste paper. 

Women's League was not idle during the emer- 
gency. Every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons 
the girls knitted for the American Red Cross.

White, chc Student Life Committee serves as an 
advisory body for student affairs and acts as a 
coordinator between the administration and stu- 
dents. The committee keeps its collective linger 
on the student pulse by holding periodic meetings 
with student leaders to determine matters of policy 
and to further harmony within the university. 

Though the group deliberates as a unit, it gen- 
erally carries out its policies through various sub- 
committees dealing with nearly e\'ery phase ot 
student activity. For instance, the Organi-ations 
Committee, headed by Dr. Charles G. Eichlin, 
considers new fraternities, sororities, and other 
clubs which petition for chapters on the campus. 

Another very important branch ol the Student 
Life Committee is the subcommittee on Health 
and Sanitation headed by Dr. William A. Gritlith. 
Dr. Griffith and cohorts are charged with the 
regulation ot all student eating places in the \icin- 
ity, such as the dining hall and otl -campus houses. 

This group is also responsible for conducting pe- 
riodic examinations of all food handlers. 

Dean Adele Stamp's Social Acti\'ities Com- 
mittee, center of some acrid debates in the past, 
has formed a list ot rules which now go\'ern all 
campus dances and other social actix'ities. This 
subcommittee has had the unciu'iable job ot trying 
to tormulate a set ot rules go\'erning social events 
which will please everybody.

'OW a^ter row of test tubes and shining apparatus sym^ 
holized the progress of mans research for a better, finer world. As the students learned 
the power of science, they began to dream and plan to harness the mighty atom for 
the greater good of their fellowmen. Thus do they serve humanity, and through them 
the university exerts a powerful influence for good upon the state and nation. They 
are the builders of the future. 

In these pages we show you, first, the 
classes, symbolizing the intellectual growth and 
maturity of the students, and the honorary so- 
cieties, symbolizing achievement in nearly every 
phase of university life. You may see the influ- 

ence of the university on the student's life during 
his undergraduate years, and, conversely, the mark 
he makes on the university through his activities 
on the campus. 

Fresh from being high school seniors, the fresh- 

men thought they knew about all there was to 
know, but they soon discovered, as all of us must, 
that knowledge consists largely of learning how 
much one does not know. Life was hard those 
first few weeks, until they found that the grim, 
weather-beaten brick buildings had a stark beauty 
of their own, that the barren classrooms could 
broaden into hitherto unexplored vistas at the will 
of the professors, that the endless rows of test 
tubes in the laboratories symbolized the eternal 
progress of man's groping search for knowledge 
and truth. Thus it was that those who truly 
sought the betterment of themselves came to love 
the university. 

Those who survived the first year had fought 
and won the hardest battle. Their personalities 
began to make themselves felt as they asserted 
themselves in their classrooms, fraternities, and 
clubs; in publications, dramatics, and a host of 
other fields. They learned to recognize and to 
participate in all the manifold phases of university 
life. They had oriented themselves and were be- 
ginning to grow up, intellectually and emotion- 

As juniors, they began to prepare for definite 
professions, to learn to be tomorrow's citizens: 
engineers, chemists, businessmen, teachers, house- 
wives, soldiers, and statesmen. They were learn- 

As juniors they began to prepare for the 
professions that beckoned to them. 

They learned from their books, but more often 

they learned by working on practical problems, 

by doing the things that industry would later 

require of them. 

ing to assume positions of trust and responsibility 
in the American way of life. They learned that 
one must sacrifice greatly to keep the things that 
man holds most dear: human liberties and the 
right to live and to work in peace. They learned 
to work hard and to play hard. They learned a 
fair evaluation of their fellow men and women, 
and had the deep satisfaction of knowing that 
those whom they trusted would not betray that 
trust. Often they were mistaken, but they profited 
by their mistakes. Those who could not, fell by 
the wayside. They learned from their books, but 
more often they learned by doing, by taking their 
places in the miniature world that makes up a col- 
lege. They learned obedience to those who were 
placed in positions of trust, provided that those 
who occupied those positions were worthy of 
them. Some of them learned tolerance; others 
found it the most difficult thing of all to absorb. 

Those who had shown they had exceptional 
abilities were elected to the honorary societies as 
juniors and seniors, because they had been tried 
and found to stand up well in the ratified air of 

leadership. More and more these students made 
their personalities felt on the student body; their 
ideas were taken into consideration before major 
changes were made. They were called upon to 
represent the university, and her reputation often 
stood or fell by the way in which they took their 
parts in activities throughout the state. As mem- 
bers of honoraries, they came under the watchful 
eyes of business and professional people who were 
looking for outstanding students, and were men- 
tally winnowing the wheat from the chaff. 

As seniors, members of honoraries or not, they 
found themselves in positions of leadership on the 
campus, men and women whom the underclass- 
men looked to for guidance. Those who had kept 

peace, when peace smashed into a thousand frag- 
ments, and they were plunged into the chaos of 
the greatest war the world had ever seen. Their 
little college world came thundering down around 
their ears, and they had to learn the greatest, crud- 
est lesson that can come to any man or woman. 
They were forced to accept the greatest paradox 
of all time : that, in order to live at peace as we, a 
free people, wish to live, we must fight, and, if need 
be, die for those principles on which American 
liberty is founded. They did not falter in the face 

The students began to take their places in the honorary societies, as they 

gained recognition for outstanding work and climbed a little higher toward 

the culmination of their college careers. 

their eyes open, those who had come to the uni- 
versity with an open mind and an open heart, 
those who had given their best and learned to take 
the bitter with the sweet, were rewarded accord- 
ing to their capabilities. A few had straggled 
through at the tail of the column, but most of 
them were ready to face the future unafraid. 

They were finished, until fate stepped in and 
gave them one more lesson to learn. They had 
almost readied themselves for the pursuits of 

of this disaster, but responded courageously, did 
what they were called upon to do, and laid aside 
their personal hopes and ambitions for the good 
of the nation. They knew that they would have 
to suffer greatly, and make endless sacrifices, but 
they faced the future resolutely. The influence of 
the university had served the nation well. 

Secretary; JAMES DUNN, Vice-President. 


JTour YEARS AGO, iiito chc shadowy 
background of the great portrait that is the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, there entered a bewildered 
mob, the Class of 1942. Harry Spicer headed the 
group, and, though it lost the annual Tug-of-War, 
he was instrumental in setting forth the glory of 
the class at the Freshman Hop. 

The following fall the class moved from the 
background of the scene to hold the awe-inspiring 

title — Sophomores! Revenge is sweet — and was 
achieved by defeating the Freshmen in their sec- 
ond Tug-of-War. Dancing to Dick Messner's 
music and a Promenade led by President Bill Hol- 
brook highlighted the year. 

Juniors — and the class moved into the lighter 
part, almost the foreground of the picture. Bill 
Holbrook, again at the helm, led the class in a 
never-to-be-forgotten Promenade to the "Swing 
and Sway" rhythms of Sammy Kaye. Soon after, 
the full light of the university fell upon them — 
they were Seniors. President Jerry Prentice guided 
them through the brightest part of the painting. 
Now, with many memories behind them, they 
go on, into the shadowy background of an even 
larger portrait — the world today. 




inE College of Arts and Sciences provides four years of training in the liberal 
arts and sciences. The curricula are designed to give the students a broad cultural foundation for any pro- 
fessional or vocational career. In the third and fourth year each student completes a closely unified group

Ihe College of Agriculture, the administrative unit of the University devoted 
especially to the agricultural industries and life of the State, is responsible for the beginnings of the 
College Park branch of the University of Maryland. Its four principal functions are Resident Instruction, 
Research, Extension, and Regulatory. 

The curricula, divided into Technical, Scientific, and Special, are planned to train young men and 
women for agricultural and related occupations, and to conduct systematic investigations on projects 
of importance to agricultural interests. It renders assistance in solving home and farm problems in their 
natural setting and enforces the standards and control measures in agriculture which are deemed necessary 
for the common good.

In 1940 THE College of Commerce was admitted to membership in the American 
Association of Collegiate Schools of Business, an organization which promotes thorough and scientific 
training for the business profession. The college carries out a complete up-to-date program of the theory 
and practice of the latest commercial methods. Marketing, accounting, advertising and selling, industrial 
management, and general business are some of the niany fields that commerce students are fitted for upon 
graduation. Training is also provided in insurance and real estate. The college has taken full advantage 
of the two large metropolitan centers nearby to study the problems of economics and commerce at first- 
hand. The curricula of the College of Commerce also provide necessary training for students of other 
colleges who need training in economics and business administration.

Ihe College of Education has as its primary purpose the training of teachers 
for the educational systems of the nation. The college furnishes data on the newest teaching methods 
to those already in the profession, and undertakes the training of undergraduates in other colleges who 
plan to make a career in education when they have completed their work in some other specialized field. 

The work of the College of Education is vital to the welfare of the state and nation. War or no war, 
education must continue if the nation and its culture are to sur\'i\e. Education is as much a part of na- 
tional defense as armament, because education is a defense for our future security. The seniors who have 
prepared themselves to maintain the American educational system arc serving America as greatly as any 
of her soldiers.

ivLTHOuGH THE PRIMARY PURPOSE of thc Collcge of Engineering is co train young 
men to practice the profession of Engineering, it endeavors at the same time to equip them for their 
duties as citizens and for careers in pubhc service and industry. Greater emphasis is placed on the funda- 
mentals of engineering, a knowledge of thc sciences dealing with human relations, and familiarity with 
business organization and operation. 

The College of Engineering includes thc Departments ot Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical 
Engineering. In addition, the college conducts special courses in defense work for non-college men, and 
maintains a program of research. 

The work of the college has been stepped up tremendously to meet the increased demand for trained 
engineers, and will continue to be accelerated as thc country's needs increase.

Ihe College of Home Economics endeavors to give a young woman a well- 
rounded personal development, a background for home making, and preparation for earning a livelihood. 
The latter is most important in this present emergency because home economics trained women are vital 
in our defense industries. Teaching, Demonstration Work, National Advertising, Research, Designing, 
and Merchandising are some of the many fields open to Home Economics students. 

All students follow practically the same program until their junior year. Then they elect a major from 
General Home Economics, Home Economics Education, Textiles and Clothing, Practical Art, Extension, 
Institution Management, or Foods and Nutrition.

The University is happiy to welcome the 
School of J\lursing to the pages of the Terrapm. 


in 1S89 the University of Mar\laiKl School for 
Nurses has grown to he one ol the leading train- 
ing institutions of its type in the country. The 
school has the unlimited use of the UniAersity 
Hospital which is equipped to give young women 
a thorough course of instruction and practice in 
the art of caring for the sick. Opportunities to 

learn all branches of niedicuie from dermatology 
and surgery through emergency work in the acci- 
dent wards are gi\en to the students. Practical 
instruction in ps\chiatric nursing is provided 
through an alliliation with the Shcppard and 
Enoch Pratt Hospital, and an introduction to 
public health nursing is proxided hy the Western 
Health District ol the Cit\' Health Department.

versity. During this time the student receives 
training in the fundamental college courses which 
are considered valuable to all college graduates, 
and is required to maintain residence at College 
Park. The last three years of this course are spent 
in the Baltimore school. During their stay at the 
Baltimore institution, the nurses are housed in a 
comfortable residence which is conveniently lo- 
cated near the hospital. Unlike the student body 
at College Park, the nurses are allowed only eight 
weeks of vacation during the entire three years of 
their training course. 

This year's graduating class of the School of 
Nursing is distinctive in that it has a larger num- 
ber of women who have had college work prior 
to their entrance into training than has any other 
class in the history of the hospital.

"Blues in the Night" by Woody Herman. 


JL/istinctive from the time they entered 
the university, the Junior Class kept up this tra- 
dition by entering a winning float in the Home- 
coming Parade this year, and by giving one of the 
most successful Junior Proms in the memory of 
the student body. Excellent music was furnished 
by Woody Herman and the promenade was led by 
Class President Oliver Guyther and Prom Chair- 
man Jack Miller. 

As freshmen they started their career of dis- 
tinctiveness by defying traditional "rat rules." This 
flaunting of authority proved to be rather dis- 
astrous, illustrated by the shorn head of their 
leader, Al Ruppersberger. A year later, the class, 
under President Oliver Guyther, avenged them- 
selves by enforcing a strict new set of "rat rules" 
upon their understudies. Although they lost the 
tug-of-war, the first year men were duly impressed 
with the superiority of the Class of 1943. 


The Prom was a rainbow shining through clouds of exams.

v^oMPLETE DOMINATION ovcr the iiew 
freshmen was the aim of the sophomores at the 
beginning of the year. A new set of "rat rules," 
known as the "Eight Commandments," plus the 
defeat of the underlings in the annual tug-of-war, 
emphatically impressed the freshmen with the 
superiority of the Class of 1944. 

During the winter the sophomores devoted 
themselves to the serious business of keeping up a 
scholastic average, but still found time to lay the 
foundation for one of the most successful sopho- 
more proms in the history of the school. 

In keeping with the current defense effort, a 
novel idea was introduced when the class set up a 
booth in the lobby of the Gym-Armory for the 
sale of Defense Stamps during the dance. Music, 
supplied by Charlie Strong and his orchestra, and 
Dance Chairman Henry Madden 's novel decora- 
tions were large factors in the success of the affair.

In mid-September some 1,250 indi- 
viduals passed through the portals ot the uni- 
versity and became members of the Freshman 
Class. During the first week their time was taken 
up chiefly by the bewildering problem of registra- 
tion and orientation. By October the group had 
settled down sulliciently to elect Fred Skonieckc 
to serve as temporary chairman. Regular class

and Jimmy James, treasurer. Under their leader- 
ship the class received a thorough dousing at the 
hands of the sophomores in the tug-of-war on 
Homecoming Day and entered their first float in 
the Homecoming Parade. Their year was high- 
lighted by the Freshman Prom, under the able 
leadership of Prom Chairman Roderick Watson, 
with music furnished by Michael Greene. 

Their prayers for rain were answered.

Honorary Leadershi[i Fraternity 

Founded at Washington and Lee University in igi^ 

Established at the University of Maryland in igz~ 

vJmickon Delta Kai'pa, KuiiiLlcd a: 
Washington and Lee University in 1914, came 
into being because of a desire to recognize leader 
ship III all helds of college work. 

Now embracing nearly fifty student chapters 
throughout the LIniccd States, Omicron Delta 
Kappa has come to play a most important role 
in our national life. The nation needs leaders now 
as never before, men who have been trained to 

think and to make decisions quickly, to know 
what to do and when to do it. 

It is to this purpose that Omicron Delta Kappa 
is dedicated. The society not iinly recognizes 
these qualities ot leadership 111 college men but it 
also de\-otes its acti\'ities to primiocing them 
wherever possible. 

Sigma Circle of the society was established at 
the University of Maryland in 1927. Since then 


it has come to play a leading role in campus af- 
fairs. During the first few weeks of the past year, 
the members were busy preparing for the Calvert 
Cotillion, one of the year's outstanding formal 
dances, which was given for the first time in co- 
operation with Mortar Board, women's leader- 
ship society. 

It has been customary each year for the Circle 
to honor one national or international figure who 
has been of exceptional service to his country. This 
year the society conferred honorary membership 
on Lord Halifax, British Ambassador to the 
United States, for his outstanding work in the 
field of higher education and for his efforts in pro- 
moting Anglo-Anierican solidarity. Omicron 
Delta Kappa also made Colonel Robert E. Wysor 
an honorary faculty member in recognition of his 
accomplishments with the university military 
department. Ten undergraduates, representing 
leadership in all the phases of university life were 
tapped at the ceremony. 

Among worthwhile projects started by the fra- 
ternity during the year were plans for a student 
union building, to be constructed as soon as pos- 
sible after the close of the present conflict. 

Officers were: Orville Shirey, president; John 
Cordyack, vice-president; Paul McCloskey, sec- 

Members: Judson Bell, Harry Boswell, John Cordyack, 
Oliver Guyther, William Holbrook, Charles Ksanda,

Iau Beta Pi, number one honorary 
society for engineering students, first came to the 
Maryland campus in 1929, when Phi Mu, local 
engineering honorary, was inducted into the so- 
ciety through the efforts of Dr. S. S. Steinberg. 

The Bent of Tau Beta Pi is worn by those stu- 
dents who ranked in the highest eighth of their 
class during their senior year. Previously a senior 
had to finish in the upper fourth of his class, but 
this standard was raised last year. Fourteen under- 
graduates and twelve faculty metnbers comprised 
the membership of the Maryland Beta Chapter. 
In addition to the scholastic requirement, pros- 
pective members must represent the highest stand- 
ards of integrity, adaptability, and leadership. 

Tappings for Tau Beta Pi were held in the fall 
and in the spring, and the initiation banquets were 
held in conjunction with the lohns Hopkins Uni- 

versity Chapter. Prominent engineers and na- 
tional officers of the fraternity were guest speakers 
at these functions. 

Under the capable guidance of President Robert 
Russell regular meetings were held, during which 
the business of the club was carried on and topics of 
interest to the engineering students were discussed. 
John Cordyack served as vice-president of the 
organization; Jeremiah Hege as secretary; Myron 
Creese, treasurer; and Vahl Underwood, cataloger. 
The Advisory Board consisted of these same

the top-ranking senior of each college was tapped, 
and in May seniors who stood in the upper eighth

Under the guidance of President Ruth Black- 
well, the club carried on its policy ot acting as a 
service, rather than a social, organization. It car- 
ried out the policy by volunteering help during 
freshman orientation week and registration, and 
by urging the freshmen women to high scholastic 
achievements. Other officers for the year included

and award high scholarship and character among 
the freshmen men. Requisites for membership 
were a 3.5 average and an honest face. 

Led by President John Spielman, Vice-President 
Clifton Currin, Secretary-Treasurer Theodore Barss, 
the members drafted and adopted a constitution 
and by-laws in an effort to get a solid foundation 
on which to work. The representative to the na- 
tional convention of the fraternity at Southern 
Methodist University had some very constructive 
points that helped the club oft to a good start.

Honorary Journalistic Fraternity 

Founded at Syracuse University m igog 

Established at the University of Maryland 
m ig;}o 

i I Delta Epsilon, honorary journal- 
ism society, confined itself rather largely to tap- 
ping outstanding students in the field of collegiate 
journalism and having banquets, during which the 
members gathered to hear speakers from the field 
of professional journalism. 

Toward the end of the year Pi Delt's collective 
conscience got the better of it and the society de- 
cided to sponsor a series of awards to senior mem- 
bers of publications staffs who had done meri- 
torious work. These awards were made in the 
form of medals presented at the publications 

Pi Delta Epsilon 's other activity was the pres- 
entation of a number of somewhat libelous, al- 
beit hilarious skits on the private lives of various 
members of the faculty who had merited Pi Delt's 
attentions during the year. These were also pre- 
sented at the Publications Banquet, much to the 
discomfort of the persons concerned. 

OtHcers during the past year were : Douglass

Organ I ~c J at 

University of Maryland

Ihe Latch Key Society was organized 
in 1938 CO act as a host to visiting teams. Since 
that time the organization has grown to he the 
Supreme Court of all managerial problems and 

In addition to arranging entertainment tor \isit- 
ing teams, the society has been empowered h\ the 
Student Government Association to act as an 
arbiter in all disputes between managers, to ap- 
point men to replace those managers who may 
drop out of school, and to supervise all managerial 
elections. The ballots for such elections can be 

opened and counted only in the official meetings 
of the Latch Key Society. 

Under the leadership of President Robert Dorn, 
the group has reorganized and written a new con- 
stitution, and has considerably strengthened the 
standing and powers of the group. Latch Key 
made all arrangements for the annual Southern 
Conference Cross Country Meet which was held 
here in the l.icc tall. During the spring the S.G.A. 
accepted a petition to make Latch Key an honor- 
ary manager's society. At present the membership 
is made up of junior and senior managers and 
freshman managers of ten varsity and treshman

Hnnnrciry Women's T^ccreatinn Association 
Founded at the University of Maryland in ig^o 


the Women's Recreation Association is Sigma 
Tail Epsilon, honorary women's athletic fra- 
ternity. Although the group was organized only 
two years ago, it has already grown to be one of 
the best known organizations on the Maryland 
campus. Unlike most other honoraries, any 
woman student of the University who has main- 
tained an average of 2.5 is eligible for member- 
ship, and prospective members are chosen from 
no particular class or curriculum. Aside from the 
scholastic requirements the prospective members 
must show the qualities of good sportsmanship, 
correct attitude, pleasing personality, and out- 

standing service in the field of women's sports. 

During February of the past year, Sigma Tau 
Epsilon sponsored a fashion show, followed by a 
dance which heralded the start of the Charm 
School, also sponsored by the club. Twice during 
the year the group published the Ncivs Letter, 
which was designed to familiarize the alumnae 
with the activities of the club. 

The organization was headed by President 
Helena Knauer, assisted by Ann Wolf, vice-presi- 
dent; and Dorothy Foerster, secretary-treasurer. 

Members; Gertrude Amoss, Edith Duntord, Dorothy

COEDS shouldered their share of the responsibility. 
They learned to wor\as well as play, for part of the university's duty was to teach them 
to he capable, to ta\e their places in the new world that must be built when we have 
fnished destroying the one we hjiow. They prepared to carry on without hesitation 
and bring the lessons they had learned at the university wherever they might be needed. 

Ihis section of the Terrapin presents 
the most widely diversified collection of activities 
the university has to offer, yet it is not out of keep- 
ing with the theme to which the book has been 
dedicated. The university itself is made up of 

hundreds of seemingly unrelated activities, but 
there is a thread of logic, gossamer thin, yet strong 
as steel, which links them together to form a great 
organization, devoted to progress. Every activity 
has some purpose, some value, else there would 

be no excuse for its existence. We show you here 
the clubs, the social fraternities and sororities, and 
Miss Maryland and her court. 

It is only fitting that, in the pages devoted to 
Miss Maryland and her court, we pay tribute to 
those coeds, elected by the student body and judged 
by a connoisseur of beauty, who have been chosen 
as the best the university has to offer. It is pro- 
phetic that the university teaches them to be cap- 
able as well as beautiful, for in the years to come, 
the women of America will take a greater part in 
aiding us to ultimate victory and to a happier, 
better world than the one we know. Since they will 
be called upon to take their places in the essential 
activities of the nation as well as in keeping their 
homes intact, the coeds, like the men, must learn 
to do their tasks well in the universities and col- 
leges of the nation. 

organization, no matter how small they may be 
in relation to the total scheme of things, are never- 
the-less very real and pressing at the moment. 
They learn, too, to take good fortune as it comes 
and to accept whatever honors they may receive 

We also include here every organization, great 
or small, banded together for whatever purpose 
it may serve, that the university has to offer. These 
groups supplement the regular curriculum in many 
ways, and a few branch off into subjects not cov- 
ered in the classrooms. They deal with political 
science, engineering, home economics, religion, 
athletics, and a hundred and one other things. 

Society wasjuat aa important a part of Univeraity life as the academic phase, 

for the students learned to play as well as work, preparing themselves to lead 

normal, well-balanced, and useful lives. 

We also include here the fraternities and sorori- 
ties, an integral part of the life of any great uni- 
versity. It is through these groups that students 
learn their advance lessons in the art of living, of 
tolerance, and of mutual help. The fraternities 
and sororities furnish companionship, and illus- 
trate the value of cooperation, both of which are 
vital parts of the American educational system 
and of the American way of life, that of the 
brotherhood of man. In these organizations, the 
men and women of the university can, if they will, 
develop their talents for leadership, should they 
be chosen to carry out the duties of some office 
through the year. They learn to meet adversity 
and to cope with it, for the troubles that beset any 

Here the students get a chance to bring what they 
have learned out into the light of open discussion, 
and to find out its worth, how it applies to their 
everyday lives, and how it will help, or even 
hinder them in many different ways. They have a 
chance to listen to other students' views on many 
different topics, to hear lecturers from other parts 
of the world. In some groups, they learn to de- 
velop their physical prowess, to demonstrate or 
improve their skills in horseback riding, swim- 
ming, mountain climbing, or knitting. They 
have a chance to help others develop these skills 

which they already possess, to develop new abili- 
ties themselves. They may learn to express them- 
selves in open debate, or they may use their abili- 
ties to entertain those less talented on the stage or 
in some musical organization. All of these things, 
taken into consideration will help in some way 
to develop a cultured, capable, level-headed 

Social life plays an important part in rounding 
out a college career. Strange as it may seem, one 
of the most difficult tasks in life is to learn to play, 
to occupy one's leisure hours pleasantly, to learn 
moderation and the art of rubbing shoulders with 
all sorts and conditions of people. The university 
plays a large part in helping the students cultivate 
those tastes and abilities which he will need when 
he takes his place in the world. 

All of the activities that we have presented here 
contribute in some way to the fundamental pur- 
pose of the university, to train a man or woman 
who can unhesitatingly take his place in the world 
and add something to the progress of society 

They heard lecturers from different parts of the 
world, and learned much from them. 

through learning, through invention, and through 
intelligent, gracious living. When we have settled 
the way of life that we shall have through gen- 
erations to come, through sword and flame, we 
must return to normal. The men and women 
who have trained themselves well are those who 
will lead us back to an ordered, balanced life. The 
University of Maryland is justly proud of the part 
it has played in producing such citizens. 

Fraternities and sororities stimulated good 

fellowship and enhanced the social side of 

campus life.

Two new columns appeared during the year. 
"Through the Tortoise Shells" featured the in- 
credible wit of Gene Sullivan and a series of re-

firmly placed the last straw on the back of the 
student body with "OflF Campus and On," 
through which he conducted a one-man publicity 
campaign for the daydodgers.

sit down and dream up a story about Professor 
Wottabottle's lecture. 

However, a visit to the publications convention 
in St. Louis convinced us of something that we

in spite of all its eccentricities, was one of the best

Quiet! Staff at work! 


j\t irregular intervals cmi Thursday 
mornings, before anyone was awake, a numlvr of 
sheepish characters began putting Old Lines in 
post office boxes. Then they departed quietly, lest 
someone should recognize them. Thus it was that 
the students were made aware of the liner things 

of life without any etlort — or e\'cn desire — on 
their part. 

Howe\'er, more goes nuo the Old Line than 
persuading the students to take it, though it might 
not seem sex More than once Business Manager 
Hathaway was seen skulking through the base- 
ment of the Administration Building making up 
his dehcits by picking pockets. 

Art Editor Walt Kerwin spent many, many 


hours carrying out some original research to find 
the perfect model. The results of this research 
have not been published as yet. Meanwhile, Doug 
Wallop sat in his office and brooded. Nobody 
ever knew what he brooded over, but all the coeds 
thought he looked awfully romantic just sitting 
there, or conversing in a strange jargon that has 
yet to find its way into the English (or any other) 

Joe White as exchange editor was the star con- 
tributor to most issues. Cecil Martin turned out 
a great deal of poetry, some of which was excel- 
lent. Carolyn Lacey turned out a short story for 
each issue and, strangely enough, they were far 
above the caliber of those that generally pop up. 

And yet, the Old Line came out almost when 
it was supposed to, and a lot of people enjoyed it. 
Sometimes, the wit was a bit puzzling, but the 
editors need not hang their heads in shame. The 
Old Line, in its own way, was an excellent maga-

Ihe Interfraternity Council was

good and true, the council lent a helping hand \n

fraternities themselves and between the university 
and che tracerna! groups. 

Using a system of rotating meetings, the council 
met about once a month in che different houses 
and discussed current topics concerning the tra-

The big events of the year started oH early with 
the council's sponsorship ot an Interfraternity 
athletic program. A cup or plaque was oftered to 
the winning cUib in each competition. Later in

one, as in previous years, journeyed to che sky- 
scraper city to accend che National Interfraternity

made, the effect oi which must have been highly 
gratifying to the planners. The "bretheren" ac- 
companied by their fair ladies turned out in full 
assemblage to "trip the light fantastic" to music 
that matched every mood. 

One feature that bears particular mention is the 
reappearance of that popular and invaluable Inter- 
fraternity Handbook published by the council. 
Where would the poor freshman pledgee be with-

such splendid work, was Josh Hughes. The vice-

spicuous service to the council's inner circles. 
Membership in the group is limited to two mem- 
bers from each recognized fraternity at Maryland. 
These recognized fraternities have now reached 
a total of twelve, proving that Maryland Uni- 
versity fraternity life is on the increase. 

Not only does the Interfraternity Council assist 
the many fraternities and their individual mem- 
bers, but it has promoted scholarship in the uni-

"the Lion Tamer" Pendleton and his cohorts. 

George was managing editor oi the Terrapin, 
and could also be found at the Kappa Delta house 
in his spare moments. Others in the K D. dele- 
gation were his roommate, "Numby" John Scott, 
and Bob Ireland, a psychology major, who often 
played bridge, using his newly acquired knowl- 
edge which backfired on occasion . . . Vice-Presi-

Ihe "Snakes" of Sigma Nu were all 
over the place this year led by prexy Don Murphy, 
the human clothes-horse, who ran a date bureau 
on the side. Bill Layton, club money man, prac- 
tically commuted from Wilmington where the 
little woman lixed. Freddie Bach dreamed ot de- 
stroying G.W. and, at the same time, his ri\al 
for the O.A.O. Hal Berry dozed in the corner, 
thinking of football days while listening to Amos 
Burlin moan about the draft and relate the farm- 
er's part in National Defense. Bert Carhart, of 
the "M" Book Carharts, studied the latest Escjuire 
fashions as Ken Hoddinott, the dude, dreamily 
wished he were in Baltimore. 

S.G.A. ruler Bill Holbrook panted under the 
weight ol his iuiiiutous keys, while Hugh Walton 
remained quiet about life in general. The brothers 
had a hard time understanding the "gate talk" o( 
ladies' man. Bill White, who played softball and 
jitterbug records, while Ranny Wolfe, intramural 
star, and Bill "Broadbeam" Ellet whipped out on 
a double date. Carl Harris managed the football 

team and served as the "Snakes'" social chairman. 
Danny Boothe found time to act as vice-president 
and keep up his seven-year stretch with his A.O.Pi 
belle. Deane Keith was assistant manager of the 
Greenbelt Theater, and gave free passes to "Sully" 
Krouse, footballer, student, and bouncer extra- 
ordinary and "Lonesome Bob" Morton, whose 
mind was far away in Jersey. Julian Murphy prac- 
ticed his golf swing with Jack Mattingly, who 
set a new record lollowing Murphy up tci the 
third t1oor. Speed merchant Tomni\- Fields spent 
his afternoons circling the cinder o\'al in record 
time . . . Al Macpherson vxTcstled with those 
tough chemistry problems . . . Hank Rassier tried 
to get jobs for the boys with the Railway E.xpress 
during the Christmas holidays. "Robbie" Rob- 
ertson was known around the campus as the 
"round ball with the red top." Ralph Burlin, 
stellar linesman ol the tootball team, receiwd the 
Diamnndhacka\\j.\\\ lor his etlorts . . . Phil Kurr 
dnided his time between engineering and social- 
izing with the local sororities. 

And so another year ended and lelt the "Snakes" 
o[ Sigma Nu still crawling into c\ery phase of 
lite on the hill.

The Army held the spotlight with Howard 
Donahue as thc pistol expert, "Duke" Hudson as 
draft bait, and Bill Higgins, the four-year basic 
man, as well as Don Rockwell and Walt Ruther- 
ford, the Pershing Rifles men. B.M.O.C. of Delta

Bill (Doc's enough) Maslin scrolling along, fol- 
lowed by prom chairman Jack Miller. 

We curncd che corner, maneuvered around a 
stalled tank, and threw out the anchor, splashing 
two sunworshippers, Bill Bates, the Kampus Kid, 
and housemanager Jim Bryan. 

Inside, piano-man Jim Degges was beatin' 
out the blues. The daily bridge game was going 
strong, Bob Russell, "Mom" Reed, Joe Eisen- 
berger and Harry Ovitt. Harry Boswell, Tom 
Lanahan, Loy Shippe, and Gene Sullivan, king 
of campus corn, were ably directing proceedings. 
In one corner, "Doc" Quinn was on a soap box 
selling used shirts, socks, and blue books to Fred 
Hicks and Fletch Jones. Prexy Roy Garlitz was 
in the phone booth making an important call. 
Tommy Bourne and John Rabai were just ex- 
changing their sections of the funnies when the 
bell rang for lunch. 

Trampling over a horde of pledges, who were 
cringing under the whip of "Massa" Harry Spicer, 
we found a plate. Amid disgusted cries of "What ! 
turkey again?" we sat down and remarked to 
Don Wick, who absentmindedly buttered his 
bread with a slide rule, how nice it was to get all 
the benefits of a quiet home life, even while away 
at college.

lnE A.G.R's are famous for their 
dances and their sherbet -gingcrale punch. Dance 
director was social chairman Bill Miles, and over- 
seeing all, president Gist Welling. Deacon Ad- 
kins was always there with his ever-constant 
shadow, Lotte. Shirking their livestock judging 
were Bill Boyer, Roland King, and John Bennett, 
the Pennsylvania Dutchman. As the dairy closes 
at nine o'clock, Brothers Day and Marty Todd 
would be there, and that yellow car out front be- 
longed to "Curly" Thompson. 

During the intermission their famous punch 
was made by Ray Gross, who was invariably 
supervised by Chick Jubb, headwaiter at the din- 
ing hall, and the other two tray-toters, Steve 
Kahoe and "Doc" Jarrell. Joe Jones, late as usual, 
arrived alter making special deliveries ior the 
post office. 

The music might have been supplied by their 
own orchestra, with Smith and St. Clair on the 
trumpets, trombone by Warren Smith, "Gump" 
Ward on the fiddle. Bill Wheeler with the guitar, 
and "Hot Lips" Baker playing clarinet. The best 
dressed boy would be politician Bob Benson. Cafe- 

teria cashier Tom Galbreath, and Dick Jenkins 
of the A.G.R. taxi service wolfed the brothers. 
Three letter men, "Mac" MacDonald, Roscoe 
Whipp ot baseball tame, and the A.G.R. coach, 
Dan Talmadge, would be there. Treasurer 
Chester Ernst counted his money in the corner. 
Phil Seltzer jitterbugged with his Incnd Mary, 
while "Doc" Northam checked up on all details. 
And so we see the dances, like the club, ex- 
pressed the best ot A.G.R.

Ihough the Lambda Chi's are lo- 
cated at the foot of College Avenue, they are still 
near enough to the campus to play an active role 
in campus life. Ed Nylen, president, could be seen 
riding merrily around the campus on those rare 
days when he wasn't enjoying the "Sport oi 
Kings." Herman Kaiser usually accompanied 
Ed to the track, hut, of course, Herman had co 
stop at the Postoflicc for that letter from Harris- 
burg. John Beveridgc and Frank Seward traversed 
the road from College Park to Bethesda every day, 
while Don Damuth laid down a smoke screen 
with his pipe as he daydodged from Baltimore. 

"Monul" Bob Fulton was a stellar hurler tor the 
Terp nine, and spent all his allowance paying 
tines for broken windows in the house. "Ram- 
rod" Ramirez kept the boys amused with his con- 
tortions of the King's English and stories of Puerto 
Rico. Bob Muma longed for the beauties of Cum- 
berland, not to mention any number of other 
things. "Baron" Klug struggled through a fifth- 
year English course, as who hasn't. Jack Davis 
ran the house canteen disconsolately but gallantly 
. . . Johnny Smoot ruled the Trail Club and hung 
around the bowling alleys brushing up on his

"Chile" Chilson, drummin' man par excellence 
with a taste for high school students, and Irv 
Neserke, piano man, got off on some hot jam 
sessions, to the annoyance of Harvey Webster who 
tried to call the Gamma Phi house every night 
before he went on duty at the airport. "Reverend" 
Bob White spent his time taking his Model "A" 
apart and not quite getting it hack together, while 
Keith Montgomery, pretty boy of the club, sped 
around in his red Plymouth. Al Merendino just 
kept quiet about everything and went home every 
week-end . . . "Duke" Kazlauskas served sodas in 
the corner drugstore and worked on publications 
every now and then, while Al Crowell set new 
records for speed in losing his pin . . . John Tack- 
ett, treasurer of the house, tried to cat up all the 
profits and very nearly succeeded. Barney Balch 
was a runner for N.B.C. and a coming young 
mogul on the hill . . . Tommy Jeffreys wasn't seen 
much, as he hid behind a book all year, and 
"Baby" Brooks wrote poems to Dottie and 
washed his Buick. 

And so, even though they were far from the 
campus itself, the Lambda Chis were an integral 
part of the campus life, participating in many 
diversified activities, working and playing, and 
trying to keep Lambda Chi up with the leaders 
among the Greek clubs.

Shakespeare was the abiding passion of Presi- 
dent Bob Wiggins, although at the recent national 
convention in Chattanooga, he was initiated into 
the Cardmal Club, an exclusive drinking fraternity 
within a fraternity. 'Tis said that local charmers 
have no effect on Bob whatsoever . . . Dick An- 
drews, A.L.T. social secretary, also tmik the Chat- 
tanooga Choo-Choo to the conwntion. The girl 
he left behind him in Kresgeville, Pennsylvania, 
wears his pin. Dick was a quiet iellow, especially 
on those little excursions to the Grill with Bud 
Shier. Bud, aptly called the "Yankee salesman," 
is from Connecticut, and has a mortal, but not 
unique, dread of S:2o's understandable since he 
is a Commerce major. Adrian VanHuizen uas

Warren Simonds, housemanager and sole owner 
and operator o( the A L.T. bus, worked in Berwyn 
on a kilbtime job to fill in spare ht)urs. The Army

Fort Belvoir . . . James Jordan, the original demon 
dance planner, was always ready to take in a

to help him pass the Air Corps physical. Dwight 
Fearnow, the sell st\led Nelson Eddy, sang the

near the eampus and de\'cited the year to progress 
and expansion. 

The unique "inlormal danees" in the Pi Kap 
bandbox ballroom became notorious, as wild 
rumors about said rex'els covered the campus. 

Brad Anderson, house manager, maintained a 
fairly constant equilibrium between trips with 
the soccer and basketball teams and studying 
ROTC with publications man Fred Kohloss.

George Stringer. Les Bailey performed the duties 
of steward and vice-president with an unsuspected 
Yankee shrewdness, while Joe Decker managed 
to stay in school despite his engineering course and 
participation in many activities. Wally Fanning 
was seldom, if ever, away from a small but potent 
A.D.Pi, Bohhy Herr was enrolled in the state 
guard, and Doug Hope and Billy Dayton were 
on the gym squad, and spent their tinie adver- 
tising the Eastern Shore. 

Jim Kearney handled Pi Kappa records and mis- 
spelled the minutes. Boh Mahon and Eddie Tay- 
lor were Commerce students after a fashion, while 
Phil Mattingly occasionally startled everyone by 
speaking more than three words. The Old Line 
art staff and dancing held Eddie Noland's inter- 
ests, while pledgemaster duties occupied George 
Proudley. Johnny Williams was in Alpha Zeta, 
president of the Methodist Club, and Pi K. treas- 
urer. Byrd Lucas was treasurer of the B.S.U. and 
chaplain of Pi Kappa. Milt Cole was always 
around, although his presidency of the Glee Club 
kept him busy much of the time. "Demolition 

squad" Bill Pruitt dieted down to a hundred and 
ninety pounds. Bob Willis was one of Pi Kap's 
many Pershing Riflemen. Johnny Walker had a 
strong affection for at least twenty women, and 
Jack Gaines, bargainer extraordinary, could always 
get house furnishings wholesale. 

Pi Kappa closed the year with justified pride 
in themselves and all looked forward to next year 
and greater expansion of their chapter.

V^^oNTiNuiNG TO MAINTAIN a repre- 
sentative in every phase of college activity, Sigma 
Alpha Mu kept up the prestige of the brick house 
back of the campus. 

Alan Sagner, prit)r of the group, rcceix'cJ the 
highest average in the house, while holding down 
many important positions, including sports editor 
of the Diamondback, manager of varsity wrest- 
ling, and membership in Latch Key Honor So- 
ciety. Treasurer Stanley Mann held high hopes of 
entering Uncle Sam's Air Force in the near future. 
"Irv" Jacobs, scribe, was said to have received 
many inviting offers from Hollywood as a result 
of character roles he played in the Footlight Club 
presentations. Steward Merhle Fox, quietest boy 
in the house, finally reached the peak ol liwliness 
when he heard that connoisseur Martin Bage- 
donow's professors wished the classroom held the 
same fascination for him that the house kitchen 
did. Triggerman of the house, "Mike" WoUson, 
the man who kept pledges in line, expected to 
repeat "Custer's Last Stand." 

Ted Sherbow was known as the shadow of the 
"Thin Man," and Norman Zinberg's only exer- 

cise was pushing himself away from the card 
table and then pulling his chair back again. 

"Bucky" Polikoft took over editorship of the 
Diamondback in January, and expected to take 
command of the United States Naval Forces in 
the Far East. Stanley Berman, the little man from 
the South with a big cigar in his mouth, listened 
to Ted Leizman, the silver-tongued orator who 
always was ready with words of wisdom to suit 
any occasion. Len Seidman was the only man 
with an active interest in the "bunny" market, 
and Ir\ing Lewis, the gentleman from Virginia, 
displayed styles direct from the pages of the latest 
Esquire, for the S. A. M's. Bobby Bornstein was the

to play an active part in life around the University. 
President Irwin Jacobs held down the mythical 
lover's post quite adequately, while preparing for 
a career in medicine. Irwin Shumaker, vice-presi- 
dent, was termed "hidian" for his scouting ability. 
Sheldon Michaels, secretary, was the lone farmer 
of the house, and spent his time studying the ad- 
vantages of life in the country. Fred Shulman 
counted the shekels and received the unanimous 
Phi Alpha nomination for "Beau Brummel." 
"Hairless" Marvin Sadur annoyed the brothers 
with his trombone playing when he wasn't study- 
ing accounting or keeping books for some campus 
merchant, and Willie Goldenzwcig, better known 
around the campus as "Willie the Lion," took his 
Army seriously in hopes of some day becoming 
a second MacArthur. 

This year, the highlight of events for Phi Alpha 
was the accomplishment of what had been a 
major aim with them for some time- the ac- 
quisition of a new fraternity house. With this 
accomplished the Phi Alpha's are ready to go.

Howard, the Panhellenic Ciumcil strove toward 
intersorority spirit and cooperation. The first step 
in this direction was in initiating the pohcy of

there always followed an informal gathering, at

problems. The new system showed great possi- 
bihties with a few minor alterations. 

During rushing the Council also served as a 
mediator and court in the event that violations of 
rushing regulations occurred. Offenders were sub- 
jected to specific penalities. 

The annual progressive dinner-dance was en- 
joyed by the fraternities as well as the sororities. 
Each sorority provided a different course of the 
dinner, which enabled all the sorority girls to 
become better acquainted with one another. 



Couples traveled back and forth between the 
houses to enjoy the music and dancing which 
followed the dinner. 

Offices of the Panhellenic Council rotate among 
the sororities according to their founding date on 
the campus. Each group was represented on the 
council by its president, rushing chairman, and 
junior representative, who are elected by each

administration and the sorority groups and among 
the sororities themselves.

Located on the hill-top directly be- 
hind the Engineering Building, the Gamma Phi 
Betas held the distinction of being the only soror- 
ity located on the campus proper. Not only was 
this a distinction but it meant the girls could get 
an extra half-hour's sleep and still get to class on 

Inside chc house, Commerce major and club 
treasurer, Marjorie Reside, could be found mum- 
bling to herself and pacing the lloor with a wor- 
ried frown as she visualized herself behind chc 
bars, with a number instead of a name, after the 
house books were audited. The strains of 'Tina- 
fore" indicated that cheerful Caroline McGill, 
vice-president and social chairman, was rehearsing 
a few of her favorite melodies. Loud discussion, 
upon investigation, revealed that Home Ec stu- 
dents Myrtle Killingsworth, Dottie Rundles, 
and Betty Lou Fike were very much engrossed in 
the complicated study of Romanesque and Gothic 

architecture, when Betty Lou Sulli\an came run- 
ning to display a picture ot an Egyptian temple 
which added more to the confusion. Ruth Bu- 
chanan's room was always crowded with fans 
when Ruth played the "Beer Barrel Polka" on her 
accordion, accompanied by Gamma Phi's other 
"Squeezebox Squeezers," Frannic Becker and 
Mildred Beck. Another laxoricc selection seemed 
zo be chc "Marine Hymn !" 

Prexy Erma Hughes and Charlotce White spent 
most of their time, which wasn't spent at some 
club meeting, exchangmg military information 
gathered on week-ends, and making predictions 
as to when the war would be o\er. Barbara Nut- 
well, our glamour girl, gave inside information, 
compiled by George, on Medical School to Janet 
Harniaii, the songbird of Gamma Phi, .\nd Mar- 
garet Ann Sherman, whiise perlecc disposition 
and willingness was the joy and envy of the en- 
tire house. The "Great Profile," Barbara Bartlett,

could usually be found in the Daydodgers' room 
discussing with Betty Hall, another daydodger, 
the many complications that arise when certain 
men are caught in the draft. In the next room 
Mary Parlett and Dottie Brosius griped about the 
disadvantages of the rigid naval discipline. Seems 
as though all the girls were forced to make tre- 
mendous sacrifices for national defense — or maybe 
they were just "Khaki- Wacky !" 

Mildred Sears wondered what personal non- 
sensities she could include in a psychological self- 
analysis, while Joan Moon breathed a sigh of re- 
lief because her days of practice teaching were 
over. Peggy Brereton and Clarabeth Holt com- 
pared memories of their former chapters at St. 
Louis and Oklahoma, but seemed to be growing 
fond of the Maryland chapter as well. 

It was a common occurrence to find the Gamma 
Phis gathered around the piano or the bridge 
tabic. They also spent many hours knitting; how- 

ever, this group seemed to have learned the secret 
of mixing work and play in the correct proportion 
for they hit the books with good results. All in 
all, they were a pretty happy bunch of girls, those 
Gamma Phis.

What the Sigma Kappas lacked in a 
roof, chcy made up in ingenuity, for while their 
new house was being finished, they borrowed the 
hospitahty of several rixal sororities, and made 
their rushing headquarters the Rossborough Inn. 
The end of the first semester, howex'er, saw them 
firmly entrenched in their new white house over- 
looking the orchard. 

Life at the Sigma Kappa house . . . Ten min- 
utes of eight, and rising in the early dawn's light, 
Evelyn Smith, Sigma Kappa's human alarm 
clock, gently clouted everyone on the shoulder 
and screamed something to the cllcct that eight- 
ten classes were imminent. Bcct\' Haase, clun 
secretary, was invariably the last one downstairs 
to breakfast. Blonde glamour girl, Betty Jullien, 
insisted on finishing breakfast, e\'cn though it 
usually meant carrying her burnt toast to class. 
Biology major Mary Frances Ryan rushed fran 
tically out the front door warning everyone to be 
careful of her pet hornets' nest. 

Ann Wolf began to enter her second cliildhood, 
a result of the teaching methods she practiced on 
little morons. A strident "Hi, girlth" heralded the 

arri\al ol Helen Carnm, v\'ho surtered a constant 
hangover from correcting speech defects. Dot 
Foerster, treasurer, was an active member of the 
crazy field house crowd. "Babe" Stratmann spent 
her spare time wTiting to a flying cadet in Mis- 
sissippi, whose shining wings she wore beneath 
her Sigma Kappa pin. It nobody could find Doris 
Wood, club prexy, it was merely because she was 
usually rushing from one important meeting on 
the hill to the next. 

A welcome addition to the Sigma Kappas 
this fall was New Englander Fran MacFawn, who 
says things such as 'Tahk the cah." Frequently 
sitting next to the telephone was Isobel Adkins — 
waiting for that call Irom her Princeton tiger. 
A fiddle bou' in one hand and a bowling ball in 
the other were Annie- Ruth Topping's usual equip- 
ment. Lacking a fiddle bow, but with a lox'cly 
\'oice, was Joyce Callerty, thud Irom the left in 
all the Women's Chorus events. Strawberry 
blonde Ann Whyte was always casting a fax'or- 
ablc vote for another house warming. "You meet 
the iiKcsc bins," she was olten heard to exclaim. 
Corsage enthusiast Phyll Newmaker received 


flowers from her fellow every time she wore a new 
dress — whether she needed it or not. 

Evelyn Foerster was small in size, but her social 
calendar was not. Busy as she was, Charlotte 
Stubbs still kept an eye on the pledges.

Ihe Tri Delt House is chc one with

nated the "Keep 'em flying" slogan, the Tri Dclt 
social chairman, Eleanor Seitcr, apparently took 
his advice to heart, for during 1941-42 she con-

— Shirley Conner, the blonde who had learned to 
mix studies and play, Kitty Perkins, the Alpha

them, Shirley PfeifTer, who resigned from the 
"Old Maids' Club" in the fall, and Cecil Myers 
who took her place when all her "lellas" lett lor 
the Air Corps. 

Upstairs red-headed "Kate" SchmoU screamed 
with rage when her placid roommate Jeanne Wir- 
sing went to bed at her usual lo o'clock. Lois 
Davis kept quiet hour as much as possible, while 
Loretta Boyan held open house for noisy day- 
dodgers across the hall. "Pat" Meltt)n shared her 
year evenly among the hospital, the practice house, 
and Bobby. Jean Smith and Ellen Jeflers supplied 
the glamorous side of things by having an air lor 

every occasion, whereas Marjorie Lovell took 
honors in athletics, being a physical education 
major and secretary of the W.R.A. Dotty Aiello 
sang her way to lame and drilled the pledges. 
Kay Shea, whose wardrobe was the envy of the 
hcuise, lent all but her last pair of shoes willingly — 
praying silently for their safe return. 

Ailcen Williams frantically made out bills and 
tried to ctillect money, while Barbara Wagner 
corresponded like mad. "Pat" Richards, social 
queen, found a little time to plav tennis, while 
Helen Biesecker spent most ol her time concen- 
trating on the Delta Sigs in general, and one in 
particular. |ane Turner and Ewlyn Meiulum had

pillars on College Avenue was the home for the 
Maryland chapter of A.O.Pi. One of the pillars of 
the local chapter was Jane Howard, the girl who 
never had a dull moment as president of the 
sorority and of Panhellenic Council. Doris Hamp- 
shire and "Uncle Charlie," after an evening of

Many sighs and groans were heard from Eurith 
Maynard as she came wearily in from a day of 
practice teaching in some local grade school, along 

with "Mickey" Kuehle, who dashed up to her 
room to write to George, and who unsuccessfully 
tried to have quiet prevail in her classroom as well 
as in the house. Mary Vaiden, Jane Page, and

door when the time came to collect bills; and 
"Beanie" Saum was the artistic member of the 
sorority, adding her own individual touch to the 
Homecoming decorations or to the novel A.O.Pi 
rush parties. "Flossie" White seemed to prefer the 
domestic atmosphere of home life to the carefree 
life of a senior college "mogul." 

During the fall, the A.O.Pi's captured one of the

liiE WHITE HOUSE tuckcd away under 
the trees behind the Gym-Armory was the home 
of the Alpha Sigmas. Across the wide green field, 
a bevy of gayly dressed girls approached the house. 
President Sue Gusack, her dark eyes sparkling, was 
explaining to the ten girls the aims of the Young 
America Wants to Help Committee, of which 
she was chairman. She had her hands full in hur- 
rying from defense meetings to merchandise inter- 
views in Washington. Mildred Radin leisurely 
strolled along with half of her mind on genetics 
and the other half in New York. Humming a few 
bars of "Jenny," Shirley Berkowich stopped long 
enough to insert into the conversation a few words 
about her piano lessons at the Peabody Conserva- 
tory of Music and the merits of dear old Thur- 
mont. With the treasurer's book under her arm, 

our all-American girl, Shirley Berman, was par- 
ticularly defense-minded. She couldn't decide 
among the Army, the Navy, or the Air Corps. 
Cynthia Baylin, her blonde head bent down, read 
a bit of a letter to Shirley. Cynthia, although a 
true Terp, was making plans for another week- 
end sojourn which was a kind of groundwork for 
her future career as a social worker. 

Rhoda Eskwith, the vivacious, curly-haired, 
half-pintcr, found Jier way to the girls' hearts 
through her unique menus. Next in line was 
Gloria Waldman, modeling her new suit which 
she made in sophomore clothing. With a far- 
away look in her black eyes, Esther Handler larily 
walked along, planning how many hours of 
dreaming she could get in before dinner. Next in 
line was her roommate, Ruth Surosky, garbed 
in a v\'hite unilcirm; she limped across the held, 
but paused for a moment to show us her blistered 
knees, souvenirs trom the practice house. Irene 
Scher, counting knit one, purl two, stumbled o\er 


a stone. With a handsome black-haired private 
on her mind, Irene couldn't be bothered to join 
the endless chatter of the rest of the group. Focus- 
ing her attention on her dinner, Marjorie Herman 
scampered across the field, and last in line canie 
Margery Dopkin, weighted down by her recently 
acquired Greek jewelry, late because of the long 
trek from the dorm. 

Dashing up on the front porch the line broke 
up with cheery "hellos" to their housemother, 
who ushered them into the dining room.

of 1942 and her COURT 

Traditionally, the Terrapin honors the University coed through its ' 
selection of Miss Maryland and her court. In this way we can best personify the 
exquisite charm, the vivacious personality, the gracious bearing that have ever been 
characteristic of the Maryland woman. Therefore, it is with considerable pride that 
we present Miss Maryland and her court. 


A^losT closely associated with American 
Lx'aucy today is the name of John Robert Powers, 
former law student, actor, and, oddly enough, 
model. During the past twenty years Mr. Powers 
has been the head of one of the country's best 
known model agencies. Over a million girls, 
hopeful ol appearing on magazine covers, have 
passed through the doors of his office. Out of this 
number only a small percentage have been selected 
to join his group of beauties, for he works on the 
principle that beauty is natural and not made. 
This is perhaps the reason for his success in his

The most important requirement for a good

organization on campus, the Rossborough Club, 
has, for the past fifty years, brought the topnotch 
bands of the nation to its members. 

This year President Emmett Kavanaugh car- 
ried on the ckib's tradition of fine music by bring- 
ing maestro Bobby Byrne to the campus for the 
first dance of the season. Held during Homecom- 
ing week-end, the dance proved one of the most 
successful of the year. 

The Christmas season was ushered in by A! 
Donahue, playing for the Christmas Rossborough. 
His "Low Down Rhythm in a Top Hat" plus 
the novel decorations combined to create a cheery 
atmosphere, symbolic of the occasion.

between semesters anci was Herman's second con-

vert Debate Club was a northern trip with de- 
bates at Penn State, Bryn Mawr, New York Uni- 
versity, New York City College, and Rutgers. On 
the annual southern trip the Maryland debaters 
met the University of Virginia, Washington and 
Lee, Duke, and participated in the Rock Hill 
Tournament at South Carolina. 

The team not only \'isitcd other local campuses 
but entertained many visiting teams at Maryland 
and held several radio debates. 

The intramural series on the topic, "women 
should not be allowed to drive automobiles," 
proved to be amusing as well as interesting. The 
club's activities included picnics and various in- 
tra-squad debates. These debates on entertaining 

resolutions gave practice to the debaters. An 
awards banquet was held, at which time a best 
debater's award was presented to the member of 
the varsity squad who had been the outstanding 
debater. An intramural tournament award went 
to the team which won the intramural scries, and 
debate keys were awarded the outstanding varsity 
debaters, selected by the coach and president of 
the club. 

This year the club was not only able to boast of 
both men's and women's teams, but a freshman 
squad as well. 

Ofhcers were: President, Charlotte White; 
Manager, Barnett Broughton; Vice-President,

Stuart Haywood was chairman of the group 
and Ted Stell handled the finances. 

U-NDER the direction of Harlan Ran- 
dall, the student orchestra participated in a num- 
ber of concerts during the year and furnished the 
background music for a spring flower show. The 
musical accompaniment for "H.M.S. Pinafore" 
in April climaxed a successful year. Officers were:

OlNGING BEFORE MORE thai! tWCIlty-five 

thousand persons during the past year, the Glee 
Club continued to be one of the University's most 
active organizations. The season began with 
several high school appearances, but the first real 
concert was given at the National Park Women's 
College in January. 

One of the few college glee clubs to be a mem- 
ber of the Associated Glee Clubs ol America, the 
Marylanders participated in a rally and mass con- 
cert given by the Maryland district of that group. 
By his selection to the Common Repertoire Com- 
mittee of the association, Director Harlan Ran- 
dall received national recognition as one of the 

four outstanding musicians of the year. 

On the last day of February the club entertained 
the soldiers at Fort Meade. This was followed by 
the annual performance before the Maryland 
Casualty Company, an appearance at Annapolis, 
and two concerts with the George Washington 
University Glee Club. The student body was 
given an opportunity to hear the group when the 
Glee Club gave a campus concert in the early

activities on the Maryland campus was evidenced 
this year by the way in which the Women's 
Chorus was received at its first recital in the Ag- 
riculture Auditorium in January. This first con- 
cert of the year had previously been given before 
the Masons' Club of Beltsville where it was 
equally well accepted. This concert was presented 
during the Christmas season and was composed 
very appropriately of a number of the more pop- 
ular Christmas Carols. 

The Chorus did its part toward National De- 
fense when it sang at the United Service Organi- 
zation Club in Laurel. March was the most ac- 
tive month o[ the year. During that month the 

group appeared before the Maryland Casualty 
Club in Baltimore and traveled to Annapolis 
where it performed betore the local Red Cross 
chapter at the request of the Kiwanis. The season 
was closed with the annual joint concert in Wash- 
ington with the Glee Club of George Washing- 
ton University. 

Under the direction of Professor Harlan Ran- 
dall the Women's Chorus greatly expanded its 
repertoire this year and the membership roll ex- 
panded to a total of sixty-one members. President 
of the Chorus \Vas Kay Martin, assisted by Vice- 
President Dorothy Aiello; Secretary Jane Chapin; 
and Treasurer Janet Scott.

V^LEF AND Key comprised a large group 
ol talented individuals who desired an outlet for 
their musical abilities on the campus. 

The organization boasted two outstanding 
annual accomplishments. In addition to putting 
on the Gilbert and Sulli\an operetta "H. M S. 
Pinafore," the Varsity Show was cast, directed, 
and produced by the numbers Bob Ziegele de- 
serves the credit for originating and writing "In-

March. It was produced and directed by Ted Stell 

and Bob Ziegele. The music was v\Titten and 
arranged by Jack Smith and the first annual song 
contest was won by Clarabeth Holt, whose win- 
ning tune was a great hit. 

The club was directed by an ellicient stafl 
headed by Ted Stell as chief executive, with Bob 
Steen as his right hand man Jean I homas re- 
ci:)rded all formal di.seussions and Jane Lhapin

The Student Band accompanied the football 
team on many trips to other colleges and univer- 
sities. This year's schedule included a jaunt to 
Philadelphia, where television pictures were taken 
of the band formations, several trips to Baltimore, 
and one to Georgetown that failed to materialize. 
In the winter the band provided musical enter- 
tainment at the basketball-boxing doubleheaders, 
featuring popular numbers along with the usual 
martial music. 

One of the more important events in the life 
of the student band was the annual spring concert 
held in May. In addition to these activities the 
band provided music for ceremonies held through- 
out the year in the Coliseum. 

Officers for the Student Band were Russell GofF, 
captain; Thomas Jones, drum major; James Shank 
first sergeant; Charles Seltzer, quartermaster; and 
Charles Beaumont, business manager. 




liiE Religious Life and Social Service 
Committee encouraged religious harmony among 
the students this year by coordinating the mem- 
bers of the ditTerent denominations found on the 
campus. Campus vespers, long a tradition at 
Maryland, were revived under the sponsorship of 
the group. The committee also planned and car- 
ried out a religion emphasis week during the 

inE Presbyterian Club, led by Presi- 
dent John Williams, held bi-monthly meetings, 
including worship services and taculcy talks, fol- 
lowed by refreshments. With the help of Rev- 
erend Custis, the club's adviser, joint social func- 
tions were occasionally planned with Rixcrdale 
Presbyterian Church young people.

religious discussion for the 

Catholic students 

V-/RGANIZED TO FOSTER thc Spiritual, 
intellectual, and social interests of the Catholic 
students, thc Newman Cluh plays an integral part 
in the religious life of the university. Under the 
auspices of the cluh the offering of Holy Mass was 
first inaugurated on thc campus just a few years 
ago and student members of the Catholic faith 
were brought closer together by the services of 
the club. 

During the meetings topics of current interest 
were discussed, the members listened to informa- 
tive lectures, and witnessed instructive moving 
pictures. For those who desired a more detailed 
discussion of either religious or educational prob- 
lems, special sessions were arranged. 

Aside from the intellectual part of the club's 
activities, the group held several informal dances 
at convenient intervals throughout the year. A 
float was entered in the annual Homecoming 
parade, and, in addition to the dances, the club 
held a number of social events during the second

Ihroughout the year the Young 
Women's Christian Association sought to serve 
the university in many different ways. 

Notable among the events sponsored by the 
"Y" were the reception for the incoming fresh- 
men, and a spring card party, at which time a sil- 
ver cup was presented to the sorority with the 
highest average. 

Officers were Ruth Dashiell, president; Marian 
Beck, secretary; and Betsy My rick, treasurer. 

inE HiLLEL Foundation served as a 
nucleus for the social and spiritual life of every 
student of Jewish faith on the campus. The mem- 
bers participated in intramural sports, dances, in- 
formal discussions, and various other activities. 
Frequently suppers were given with outstanding 
speakers as guests. 

Morris Rosemaii led the group, with Betty 
Stone as vice-president; Miriam Shiff, secretary; 
and Daniel Goldman, treasurer.

interest in the international situation. Some of the 
outstanding speakers who addressed the group 
were Dr. Eugene C. Auchter, of the Department 
of Agriculture, and Mr. Paul Emile Victor, 
French explorer and naval attache. Harry Hutson 
was president; Eileen O'Neil, vice-president; Joan 
Bell, secretary; and Betty Anderson, treasurer. 

Ihe Home Economics Club partici- 
pated in many activities this year, cooperating 
particularly with various branches of national 
defense work. As an experiment the Home Eco- 
nomics Club and the Student Grange cooperated

brought commuting students into 
closer contact with campus life 


'ne of the most active campus organ- 
izations this year was the Daydodgcrs Cluh. Ic 
was estahlishcd to secure recognition for all Jay- 
dodgers and now boasts the largest membership 
of any club on the campus. 

In September President Bud Uhland assumed 
office and led the members in upholding the prin- 
ciple that daydodgcrs must become more active 
in campus life. It was the object of the governing 
body to bring this about by increased activities of 
the club. Through the efforts of Howard Crom- 
well, social chairman, monthly dances, bowling 
and swimming parties, picnics, and a hayridc 
were held. Teams were entered in all intramural 

sports and were very successful. 

In addition to a freshman daydodger mixer at 
the Ixginning of the first semester, a committee 
v\'as appointed to help entering freshmen arrange 
for transportation tor all commuters who had diffi- 
culty in going to and from College Park. 

The organization worked for lenient parking 
regulations, and thrcuigh ceaseless efforts finally 
arranged to ha\e a lunchroom for daydodgcrs in the 
Dining Hall. Hope of a student actix'ities build- 
ing are still held by the members. 

Other officers who guided the club were Vice- 
President, Kay Barker; Treasurer, James Malcolm; 
Secretary, Mary Pailchorp. 


splashed merrily in the Ambassador 
pool, held life-saving, diving classes 

iiiF. Swimming Club affiirded a winter 
substitute for those students of the Uniwrsity who 
enjoyed a summer dip in a cool lake or the raging 
surf. Twice a month this group journeved to the 
Ambassador Hotel pool for an hour or more of 
relaxation and relief from the drudgery of studies. 
A great deal of practical benefit was derixed from 
Red Cross Life Saving classes under competent 
instructors, which were held at regular mter\als 
throughout the year. Although there were nn 
achievement requirements for membership ni the 
club, several members were excellent swimmers 
and gave swimming and diving exhibitions at 

the meetings. 

Under the leadership of President Gilbert Perry 
the Swimming Club held its annual dance in the 
Gym-Armory in April and its gala Beach Party 
for the members at Beverly Beach, in May. Each 
member of the club contributed to the treasury at 
the start of the year and the proceeds from this 
were used to finance a dance and beach party. The 
remainder of the fund went to obtain a special 
rare lor the swimmers at the Ambassador Pool. 

Other officers tor the year were Ben Coster, 
\ice-president; Heidi Hermann, secretary; and 
Jackie Loxell, treasurer.

campus, the Footlight Club added another suc- 
cessful year to its record. Four hits and no errors 
was the total score, and a campus full of satisfied 
playgoers attested to the popularity of the local 
productions. Credit went to President Jerry Prcn 
tice, who piloted the club through its first semester 
activities. Conflicting duties forced him to turn 
the presidency over to Aria Guild, who carried on 
through the second semester. 

The club opened the season with Percy j.nd 
Denham's stage and screen hit, "Ladies in Retire- 
ment." The almost all-girl cast did not daunt the 
veteran player Jack Cherry, who upheld the mas- 

culine reputation unaided. A few bouquets must 
be thrown in the direction of Maijoric Pinschmidt, 
who played the feminine lead. Such names as Jean 
Forbes, Louise Love, Helen Bruns, and new- 
comers Roberta Kells and Eleanor Seiter com- 
pleted the cast and explained why the first show 
of the year was a hit. 

The next production needed little advertising 
since the cast was a wceran one and was well- 
known to the university theater-goers. "No Time 
for Comedy," Behrman's current hit, was the play, 
and Dr. Hale, the club's facuicv ad\iscr, directed 
Aria Guild and Jerry Prentice in the leading roles.

Again Mr. Dupler cook o\cr the reins and his

Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler." 

Mr. Dupler waited until spring to pull his next

crowded with an enthusiastic audience who saw

To preserx'c the "show must go on" tradition, 
there is a great deal of backstage work. It the eye 
could only pierce the stage curtain, Gunther Wer-

the stage crew and his cigar a workout. He saw 
what had to be done and did it. However, the

the club ever had. Much credit also went to the 
stagecraft class. 

"I need two bedroom lamps, a backgammon 
board, and two decanters of whiskey." This con- 
glomerate request generally heralded the approach 
of a "prop" director. Erma Hughes, treasurer, 
and Jane Chapin could always be depended upon 
to have every "prop" in place when the curtain 
went up. 

Notice how smoothly the lights worked this 
year? All due to a brand-new switchboard con- 
structed and skillfully manipulated by George 
Stuntz. Mr. Duplet, technical director, also 
deserved credit for the smooth backstage organ- 
ization that had the sets for one show shifted and 
ready for the next act in eight minutes flat. 

Cooperation between backstage, actors, and 
directors made a successful year possible, and again 
the Footlight Club maintained its coveted position 
in the campus spotlight.

Club members. 

Boasting of a large and ever-increasing mem-

part of university life. In October, the club be- 
gan its activities with several popular fox hunts. 
The annual Gymkhana, held midst autumn love-

The laurels which the horse show won in the 

spring ot 1941 spurred the club on to even greater

jumpers from Maryland, Virginia, and the Dis- 
trict ot Columbia participated m the gala event, 
and the handsome Lieter Aitcheson Memorial 
Trophy was awarded to the winning rider of the 
show. The horse show received such approbation 
in the course of its short history as to promise a 
brilliant future.

On the appointed day, rain or shine, they met 
in front of the library and were taken by car to the 
scene of action. Everyone wore old clothes, and 
was prepared to "rough it." Meals were cooked 
over an open lire and, alter appetites had been 

appeased, the members sat around the camphre 
telling stories and singing. At night they crawled 
into their sleeping bags or slept in open shelters. 

This year, with their presiclent, John Smoot and 
their \ice-president, Sevier Baumer, the club 
members visited Great Falls, the Kensington

HE ROTC was called upon to play a larger part in 
university life than ever before. The cadets were called upon to ma\e sacriUces in their 
personal freedom and to learn the true meaning of authority. They learned to suhordi' 
nate personal desires for the good of the university and the nation, and they learned that 
there are times when a man must surrender his personal freedom in order to save it. 



should close our record of college life with sports 
and military science, since both are devoted to 
training able personnel to take their place in the 
lines of our nation's defenses. The ROTC will 

be called upon to take a larger part in university 
life than ever before. They will be called upon to 
make many sacrifices in their personal freedom. 
They will be required to maintain a discipline in 
some ways comparable to that which they will be 

placed under in the armed services. They will, 
they must, learn the meaning of the chain of re- 
sponsibility, of command, necessary to any prop- 
erly functioning army or business enterprise. They 
will learn that they must subordinate personal de- 
sires for the good of the university and later of the 
nation. Personal freedom is one of man's most 
cherished possessions, but there are times when he 
must surrender it temporarily in order to save it. 
There is much to be done, and the time has al- 
ready grown short. Before the war is over, and we 
can rebuild from the wreckage of the world, the 
nation will need hundreds upon hundreds of 
thousands of men, trained men, to carry the battle 
forward in the front lines, and to keep factories 
roaring and communication lines open in the rear. 
In order to save their 'nation, and, it may be, to 
save their own lives, the students must be trained 
to know what to do, and to do it quickly and well, 
whether in battle or in keeping production rolling. 
It is a military axiom that only those men who 
have been thoroughly, effectively trained, ever 
survive in battle. That we may continue to live 
and to progress as individuals and as a nation, we 
must learn much and suffer greatly. We can make 
great strides toward progress if we can learn those 
lessons we need to know at the university, rather 
than by bitter experience, when the experience 
may be disastrous rather than instructive. 

Sports, too, play their part in the life of the uni-

versity. It is through sports that the American 
boy first learns to take care of himself, to cooperate 
with his teammates, to play the game fairly, and 
to keep giving the best he has, win, lose, or draw. 
He learns to take pride in his performance and to 
seek to improve it. Every student cannot be a 
great athlete, or even a varsity athlete, but intra- 
mural sports for men and women teach the same 
lessons, afford the same enjoyment, and furnish 
the same pride of achievement, that the varsity 
athletes, who carry the university's banner 
throughout the nation, enjoy. Whether they win 
or lose, they at least have the satisfaction of know- 
ing that they are adding to the physical fitness of 
the nation, at a time when physical fitness is 
needed to maintain the pace that we have set for 
ourselves. Those who play the game fairly on the 
athletic fields, those who represent their organiza- 
tions with honor are well prepared to play the 
game of life, or to play an even more desperate 
game, for as they once carried the banner of an 
organization into battle, so they may now be 
called on to carry the banner of the United States 
into battle for the preservation of the nation. 

We have presented here every phase of uni- 
versity Hfe. We have sought to show you what 
it is that makes this university great, what it is 
that draws her students to her with an inseparable 
bond. It is more than the experiences they have 
gone through here, more than the memory of 
friendship and love, more than the pride of achieve- 
ment and the joy of working for a purpose. They 
are drawn to the University of Maryland by blood 
relationship. Wherever they are, whatever they 
do, they bear the stamp of the university upon 
them. Even as they are judged by their actions, so 
is the university judged. Those who have gone 
and will go from her gates have each left a part of 

their will to contribute something to the future of 
the world. It is thus that the university casts its 
influence on the life of the United States, and 
makes its contribution to progress. The fact that 
we have come this far on the road to greatness is 
indicative of the spirit and faith of the students. 

So, as another class leaves, we wish them well 
in their march toward progress. The road is hard, 
but they have been well trained. However, we 
caution them to remember one thing: "If one 
would be great, he must serve." Let them carry

they had once carried the banner of the University. Wherever they were called 
upon to serve, they served faithfully and well, carrying the job through to the 

end against any odds. 

themselves here, a contribution to the growth and 
progress of the school and of the nation. They 
have in turn taken with them all that we have in 
our power to give in preparing them for the roles 
they must play in life. The rest is up to them, to 
their courage and ingenuity, their stamina, and 

the influence of the university wherever they may 
be called upon to serve, that she may be known 
and honored through their work. 


/vLTHouGH BADLY BATTERED by gradua- 
tion, an ambitious group of sophomores arrived 
on the practice field in September to fill last year's 
vacancies and to prepare for one of the most im- 
posing schedules in Maryland's gridiron history. 
Troubles seemed to plague the team from the be- 
ginning and, in spite of fine playing by individual 
members, only three games were won. 

However, as the season drew to a close, it 
became more and more apparent that the Uni- 
versity had one of the gamest teams in years — a 
team which, nevertheless, continued to fight even 
in the final minutes of the worst rout. They closed 
the season with an outstanding performance

est and most enthusiastic section of cheering 
"rats" in recent years, the Old Liners drove be- 
yond the Hampden-Sydney 5-yard line three 
times, but lacked touchdown plays to go over. 

The Terps finally took to the air in the last 
minute of the first half to shake off goal-line preju- 
dices; Bob James took a bullet-like pass from 
Mearle Duvall in the end zone for the score. 
Relishing the taste of a touchdown in their minds, 
the Terps gained one more in each of the last two 
periods with sophomores "Reds" Wright, Tommy 
Mont, Jack Mier, and Bob James leading the at- 
tack. Wright missed two and Mont missed one 
in conversion attempts. 

Instrumental in keeping the visitors back on 
their own side of the 50-yard line was Bernie 
Ulman, senior back, whose punting for the after- 
noon was superb. With one 70-yard punt plus 
other long ones, he bore hopes of keeping succeed- 
ing foes back. 



Ihe Terps started off hrilliandv on

with a first dov\'n on the Terror's (^ yard line.

But the Terps were held again and the score at the 
half was o o.

ball on the Maryland 37-yard line. No Maryland 
man had attempted to handle the ball on the kick- 
oft, and two plays later Duke was over for a 
touchdown. This quick score was a blow from 
which Maryland could not recover until the next 
quarter. In the meantime, the Blue Devils rolled 
up 35 points. 

In the second and third periods, Maryland pro- 
duced a moral victory by allowing Duke to score 
only six points during thirty minutes, and in the 
final stanza the Terps turned to their aerial attack 
to penetrate to the Devils' 10 on three consecutive 
first downs. At this point the great Duke team, 
later to be Rose Bowl contestants, smothered any 
further scoring attempts.

Sandy-haired Mearle Duvali put his basket-

ing crowd of 7,500 fans when he made a one- 
handed catch of "Reds" Wright's bullet-like pass 
late in the last period and sprinted 45 yards for 
the final touchdown. 

Maryland scored first in the second period, the 
opening of which found Maryland on the 'Gators' 
42. From there, with Duvali passing to Barnes, 
Maryland went to Florida's S. Then Wright 
took over with a line-plunge attempt and a final 
pass to Cordyack, who fell over from the i-yard 
line for a touchdown. 

Maryland was set back on its goal-line time and 
again with brilliant plays by Tommy Harrison in 
bringing back short Terp punts. The Maryland 
line held on first the 2 and then the i-yard lines, 
until Harrison brought back Ulman's punt to the 
Old Liners' 35. This set up was the beginning for 
both Florida touchdowns.

JLn the first period Penn powcrhoused 
Maryland for twenty points. In the second period, 
after Penn had acquired its fourth touchdown, 
Maryland opened up with a seemingly impossible 
march. Starting on their own 21 , the Terps drove 
to a touchdown. Mier passed to Duvall on the 
47, then Barnes gave the best exhibition of pass 
receiving of the afternoon by reaching up between 
Stirt and Gifford to take one of Duvall's passes 
on Penn's 19. Cordyack and Micr shpped through 
some beautiful holes in the Quaker hue to the S, 
from v\'hich Du\all tossed one to Cordyack tor 
the only Maryland score. Alexander's conversion 
attempt was blocked. 

The second half gave indications ot turning into

ried the ball for a touchdown in six plays. The

JVjaryland traveled CO Griffith Sta-

in sports. Although the Georgetown boys were 
not the Hoyas of last year, when they furnished 
Orange Bowl competition for Mississippi State, 
they still had the \A'eight in their line, resulting 
in a decided advantage. Maryland had just as 
flashy and competent a backfield as the Hoyas, 
but the backfield could not travel when a light 
line had to push around a beef trust. 

Our line may have been lighter but as far as 
quality was concerned, it was far superior. In the 
second period, Maryland held for four downs on 
its 1-yard line, and again in the same period, the 
Hoyas tried twice before a fake pass drew the 
Terps out so that Bulvin could score. Conrad, 
Alexander, James, and Burlin were the stalwarts 
of the line. 


Kcydets were set back on their heels by the boom- 
ing 65-yard punts of Duke Alexander, classy high- 
jumping end. Maryland was finally set back to its 
own 10 where a clipping penalty forced the team 
back on its i-yard line. The kick was short to the 
35-yard line, setting up the first V.M.I, touch- 

After this the great V.M.I, combination of 
Pritchard and Muha began to click and Maryland 
didn't get into enemy territory until after the 
Keydets had scored two touchdowns. The half- 
time V.M.I, kickoft was taken by Maryland to 
the V.M.I. 35 where the drive stalled. 

From there, V.M.I, took over and the Old 
Liners showed fight by executing two magnificent 
goal line stands in the fourth period, first on the 
1-foot line and later on the lo-yard line.

MARYLAND, 6 W. & L.. 

iwo Baltimore boys, wich five other 
seniors in the hneup, bowed out of Maryland foot- 
ball with a clear-eut triumph over the Washington 
and Lee Generals. Du\all and Ulman were the 
two Baltimore sparkplugs in a game that showed 
overpowering attack, comparable to no other 
game during the season; 21 1 yards tor Maryland 
against 45 tor the Generals. 

The game started so slowlv that bv halttime 
most ot the 4,000 spectators were a bit bored by 
the two apparently evenly matched teams strug- 
gling between their own 35-yard Imes. 

The Maryland boys must have eaten plcntv of 
raw meat between periods, because a sht)rt punt 
by the Generals, landing on the Maryland 39, was 
immediately taken over for a touchdown. Senior 
Duvall and sophomore Mont collaborated, with 
Mont finally slicing otf tackle from the 6 tor the 
onlv Maryland score. 



Morton and Heyer, senior linemen, played bril- 
liant defensive ball, twice spilling Baugher, the 
Generals' passer, tor lo-yard losses.

An all Sophomore team, capable reserves, and a flashy scorer 
combined to form a surprisingly well^played bas\etball season 

With only one senior, who was in- 
jured before the start of the season, and an inex- 
perienced group of juniors, Coach Shipley decided 
to pin his basketball hopes on a fast-stepping 
sophomore five. This was probably the first all- 
sophomore team ever to start the season for Mary- 
land, and it performed progressively better despite 
a difficult schedule. 

Mearle Duvall, the senior, was finally able to 
ioin the team half way through the season, but

A Terp sinks a basket in spite of stiff Virginia 

be regained with a "breather," the Old Liners 
were sent to New York to meet three of the strongest 
teams in that area. Seton Hall routed the Terps 
worse than had West Virginia, but the team im- 
proved enough in the remaining games of the 
tour to get 49 points against powerful St. John's 
of Brooklyn. Maryland now began to realize 
that it had one of the hottest individual scorers in 
its history in lanky Ernie Travis, who had ac- 
counted for 94 points up to this tim.e, an average 
of 15 per game. Tommy Mont was the only 
other Terp even hinting at future scoring power. 
In their first home game the Old Liners showed 
ability in a decisive win over Washington College, 
and rose to great heights to defeat Georgetown, 

their traditional rivals from the District of Co- 
lumbia. However, George Washington effec- 
tively silenced any talk of a mythical District 
championship, and with two defeats in a single 
week by the Washington and Lee team, Mary- 
land's ball-hawks, for the second consecutive time 
in 26 years, failed to qualify for the play-offs of the 
Southern Conference Championship Tournament. 
When the William and Mary game arrived, the 
Terps were conceded but slight chance to defeat 
these contenders for the conference championship, 
but Maryland was no respecter of standings that 
night, and gained a ten-point lead which was 
never overcome. The next night the Terps were 
smothered bv the smoothest brand of basketball 


ever seen ac the Coliseum, tor West Virginia 
stopped at College Park on its way to the National 
Championship at Madison Square Garden. But 
the season ended on a hopclul note when the team 
functioned as a composite unit in deteating the 
high-ranked Keydets trom the Virginia Military 

Ernie Trax'is lived up to predictions by scoring 
an approximate average of fifteen points per 
game for a season's total ot 377, the largest exer 
amassed by a Terp player. Tommy Mont de- 
veloped into one of the best all-around players on 

the team, scoring a wry respectable iSi points. 
These two players accounted for 68 percent of 
Maryland's entire total, and showed the unbal- 
anced condition ol the team better than anything 
else. James, Schuerhob, and Duxall were excel- 
lent floor players, but could not make enough 
shots to balance the scoring. The second team 
saw an unusual amount of action, for "Ship" was 
continually trying out new player combinations. 
Boys like Fetters, Horn, Gordy, Steiner, and 
Baitz contributed much to the season.

With the return of five experienced 
mittmen and a select group of hard hiccing recruits, 
Maryland's new boxing mentor, Bobby Goldstein, 
saw promise of a squad that was to surpass all 
past Terp teams. Little Jud Lincoln, a fast step- 
ping leather slinger of past seasons, eiicouraged 
by wins and added weight, moved into the 127- 
pound bracket to make room for flyweight Joe 
Cicala at 120 pounds. Tom Jones, Maryland's 
sensational 135-pound "Kid Galahad," proved 
to be the find of the year as he outboxed and out- 
smarted opponent after opponent. "Hotsy" 
Alperstein, our perennial producer of pugilistic 
points in the 145-pound class, remained the Old 
Line headliner as he consistently came through 
with victories. Pat Quinn, the long armed 155- 
pound Irishmen, showed winning form, while our 
"hard luck boy," 165-pound Johnny Gilmore, 
displayed wares creditable to an up and coming 
champion. In the heavier weight classes Herb 
Gunther and Len Rodman, Maryland's blitzkreig 

boxers, punched for points that consistently 
spelled "win." 

This team proved its caliber with a triumphant 
conclusion, when on March 7, it travelled to

knockout. Gunther displayed the ability that had 
made him Conference light-heavyweight cham- 

pion when he "kayoed" his opponent in the second 
round. However, Tom Stevenson, the South's 
last hope, received a close decision nod over heavy-

unbeaten through high school, frosh, and varsity 
boxing matches, lost his winning streak in the 
evening's best bout when Tom Jones traded 
grudge punches to earn a favored decision. 

"We'll take our time, watch for an opening, 
and let 'em have it," said Coach Goldstein. This 
bit of advice was followed to a "T" that night in 
Brookland Gym when Bobby's boys "swung from 
the heels" to beat a highly favored Catholic Uni- 
versity unit. This was Maryland's first win over 
the Cardinals since 1935. Undefeated "Hotsy"

nothing worse than a lis. when he made his early

Coaches Faber and Heagy 

With the hope of regaining the Na- 
tional Intercollegiate Lacrosse Championship that 
had slipped into the hands of a powerful Hopkins 
team the previous year, the Old Liners started a 
lacrosse season intended to surpass all seasons. 
This 1942 version of the old Indian pastime was 
a supreme climax to Maryland's thirty-two years 
in collegiate "skull-cracking." Although the 
Terps current lacrosse set-up was hard hit by 

graduation and the loss of such stars as Mueller, 
Slesinger, Sexton, and Graham, an all-out pro- 
gram developed a squad of stickmen who were 
potential all-Americans. 

This Faber-Heagy teani built around Vanden- 
Berg, Grelecki, Stockhridge, Tarbert, Ulman, 
Dittmar, Fetters, Burlin, McGregor, and Forbes 
was generally conceded by lacrosse critics and 
experts to be one of the best stick combinations

goalie only twice, during the last minute of the 
first half and the first minute of the last halt. The 
attack, paced by Ray Grelecki with 4 goals, hit 
its stride and shot the ball past the opposing de-

Conductors VandcnBerg and Ray Grelecki started 
the fireworks when they rippled the net to gain, 
six and three points respectively. With the ex- 
ception of this phenomena, scoring honors were 
evenly spread out. The midfielders showed a big 
improvement over their previous game in that 
they were much more aggresive in their offense 
and defense. Maryland never had a lacrosse team 
that could clear out faster or more smoothly than 
this new aggregation. Cooperation between the 
mid field and defense had the opponents "tied up" 
and "running in circles." 

The Terrapins gained their third straight one- 
sided lacrosse triumph when they overpowered the 
Baltimore Athletic Club 13 to 1. VandenBerg 
was once again the honor man for the afternoon's 
engagement when he evaded his opponents on 
several occasions in the first period to run up an 
early lead for the Liners. In the second quarter 
both teams settled down to a grim struggle and 
scoring honors were evenly divided, with Taylor

Ihree meets "went by the boards" be- 
fore Maryland's 1942 track team began its out- 
door campaign when, under the capable guidance 
of Eddie Quinn, the Terps turned in some excel- 
lent records. 

On February 7 the Maryland relay team, com- 
posed of Bob Montgomery, Howard Gugel, 
Randall Cronin, and Bob Condon, began the in- 

door season by taking third place in the Millrose 
games at New York. 

Three weeks later thirteen Old Liners journeyed 
to Chapel Hill for the Southern Conference indoor 
games, returning to College Park with two cham- 
pions and third place in team competition. Bob 
Condon, Maryland's stellar half-miler, won the

pionship in two years in that event, with a jump 
of 5 feet 11 '4 inches. The day after the meet, 
Duke left school to join the Marine Corps, thus 
depriving Maryland ot many sure points in the 
outdoor season. 

The Maryland trackmen took tourth place ui 
the Catholic University games at Riverside Sta- 
dium, in a thrill-packed meet which saw Greg

evening was run by Randall Cronin who took sec- 
ond place in the 66o-yard run behind John Strasen- 
baugh of Georgetown. 

About the second week in March the Terps dug 
their spikes into the cinders and began practice for 
their eight outdoor meets. The team, perennially 
weak in field events, was bolstered by a strong ag- 
gregation of sophomores from last year's unde- 
feated frosh squad. 

Blacksburg was the scene ot the first meet, as the 
Terps battled to a 63-63 tie with the V.P.I. Gob- 
blers. Soph Stirling Kehoe took scoring honors 
with victories in both the mile and two-mile, and 
a well-paced race in the SSo saw Bob Condon 
and Stan Kihn break the tape together in the good 
time of 2 :o6. Carl Englar again surpassed all 
competition in the pole vault as he cleared the bar 
at 12 feet. 

On April 14, a powerful V.M.I, squad turned 
back the Terps, 77^2^48^2 on the local track. 
Highlight ot the meet was Tiny Horn's heave of 

150 feet 7^2 inches to set a new university and 
stadium record in the discus. Soph Bob James ran 
his first race in the high hurdles to win in the good 
time of 15:8.

In their six remaining meets, the Terps ap- 
peared to have a winning combination with a

Bob Condon being favored to repeat his indoor 
victory in the SSo. Maryland presented a well- 
balanced squad in both running and held events. 
hi the loo-yard dash and the 220, Gugel, Adams, 
and Carolan were all outstanding. Montgomery, 
Cronin and Condon were the leading men in the 
quarter, along with Lou Chacos and Vernon Sul-

Klhn, who left hir the Army late in May. 

Stirling Kehoe was the mainstay in the mile

of the most trving. Maryland lost to the Rich- 
mond Spiders by the ox-ertime total of i i i 5, the 
winning Spider runs being scored when Mac Pitt,

game to the Tar Heels of North Carohna at

hits but walked in three runs to allow North 
Carolina to win 6-0. The Terps were again shut 
out on the following day by a 7-0 score, being 
limited to three hits while the Tar Heels manu- 
factured their seven hits into seven runs. 

On April 6, the double-header played at Duke 
resulted in two more defeats for the Terps, but 
the performance was not as bad as it seemed. 
Coach Burt Shipley could find something to smile 
about in the first game when rookie Jack Wright 
survived seven innings before suffering an eighth- 
inning letdown that brought about his 8-3 defeat. 





Duke cook advantage of tour hies, a walk and 
error to score four runs and sew up the game, but 
Wright showed enough stuff to warrant future 
service on the tiring Une. 

The second game with the Blue Devils resulted 
in another defeat tor the Old Liners when Duke 
shoved across four runs in the first inning to clinch 
the ball game. Max Hunt entered the game in the 
second stanza and buoyed Terp hopes by scatter- 
ing six hits and allowing one run to he scored in 
the eight innings through which he served as relief 
pitcher. The Old Liners could not come through 
with the stick punch, however, and the game ended 
5 3, Duke.

With only two of last year's squad 
missing, Coach Alan Kershner looked forward to 
another successful season. Practice began early on 
the composition courts and in the coliseum when 
the weather was too forbidding. Richmond was 
scheduled to be first on the list of twelve matches 
to be played by the Terps. This match was rained 
out, so Navy proved to be the opening engage- 

Coach Kershner started Doyle Royal at the 
number one position against Navy's Spreen, 8-6, 
4-6, 6-1. Spreen, who was rated quite high in 
local circles, lost out only after a hard-fought duel. 

Maryland's only other win was rung up by 
Elwood Bates, who won over Fowler in straight

with Catholic University. 

sets, 6-2 and 7-5. This was typical of the close 
matches encountered during the afternoon, but 
Slater Clarke and Bill Gottlieb also lost their con- 
tests in straight sets, which they did not give up 
without a desperate struggle.

Strauss and Gottlieb won the first set of their 
dciuhlcs to extend the match to three sets, while 
the other two succumbed in straight sets. The 
final score of the match was 72, Navy, but Coach 
Kershner expressed his satisfaction with the 
squad's showing despite defeat, lor last year the 
Navy hung a much more decisive whipping on 
the Old Liners. 

The Terps looked forward to a more successful 
conclusion to the season than the start had been, 
but the schedule included such teams as North 
Carolina, Duke, Georgetown, Virginia, and 

George Washington, all ol whom possessed strong 
teams but did not figure to blank the Terps in any 
of the matches. 

With only two members graduating, ne.xt 
year's team was expected to come up to, if not 
surpass, the standards set by Terp renins teams of 
the past. Slater Clarke, Bill Gottlieb, Hlwood 
Bates, and Merle Strauss were slated lor at least 
one more vear o{^ ser\ice. .Althtnigh the start ot 
the season was disct>uraging, the luture looked 
hopeful to the coach and his raci.]uet'swinging

a great cross country coach when Tommy Fields 
took over the reins of Maryland's 1941 harrier 
squad. Two wins, two losses, and third place in 
the Southern Conference was the record compiled 
by this dynamic lad in his first year on a Varsity 

Sparked by seniors Gene Ochsenreiter and 
Bobby Condon and sensational sophomore Stirling 
Kehoe, the harriers scored big victories over Duke 
and Georgetown, bowing only to North Caro- 
lina and Virginia. 

Ochsenreiter, Condon, Bob Montgomery, and 
Roy Skipton ran their last races for the Black and 
Gold this year, all turning in excellent perform- 
ances. Kehoe, Stan Kihn, and Jud Lincoln will 
wear Varsity uniforms again next year. 

Maryland placed third to North Carolina and 
Duke in the Southern Conference meet, when the 
Terps played host for the second consecutive year. 
Ochsenreiter was the first Old Liner to score, tak- 
ing sixth place. 

Besieged in the early part of the season by the 
draft and injury jinxes, the Terps rallied to turn 
in a fine record for this year. An innovation was 
the running of a four-mile course instead of the 
customary five miles.

Maryland won with 35 points. 

joE McDaniel, chc new Maryland 
wrestling eoach, was one of the outstanding ama- 
teurs in the United States, if not in the world. For 
a number of years he was National A.A.U. 135- 
pound champion and was undefeated in a tour 
through Europe. 

Coach McDaniel had trouble in patching to- 
gether a team after last year's 245-pound heavy- 

Armstrong tackling his opponent. 

First row: Coach McDaniel, Armiger, Searls, Remsberg, Armstrong. Second row: Glasgow, Dunn, Lee, Conrad, Manager Moreng.

Coach Joe McDaniel 

weight, Sully Krouse, and undefeated 175-pound 
Champion Paul McNeil, were declared inelligiblc 
due to the Southern Conference three-year com- 
petition ruling. 

Searls and Dunn at 135 and 165 pounds re- 
spectively were the only experienced men return- 
ing and proved to be consistent point-getters. Find 
of the year proved to be heavyweight Luther Con- 
rad, who, although lacking experience, capably 
filled the vacancy. Norman Glasgow in the 121 
bracket contributed balance to the other end of 
the weight listings. The izS-pound class was 
ably hurdled by Johnny Armiger, while red- 
headed Doty Remsburg flattened opponents at 
145 pounds. Dick Armstrong contributed color 
and authority to the 155-pound class and Jack Lee 
turned in a good record at 175 pounds. 

Climax of the season was the overwhelming 

win for Maryland in the District of Columbia 
A.A.U. tournament, held in the Women's Field 
House. Second to the Terps in points was the Dis- 
trict Y.M.C.A. with 21 points, hi taking the 
team crown, Maryland had four individual cham- 
pions, Glasgow in the 121, Searls in the 145, and 
Crom, on the team for the first time, took the 165- 
pound crown. Paul McNeil was eligible and ex- 
hibited a smooth style in gaining his 44th straight 
amateur win from Vern Heiser of the Y.M.C.A. 
Three runners-up also wore the Black and Gold; 
Armiger, 12S, Herb Swindell, 135, and Sid 
Abrams, who lost to Ted Crom in the i65rpound 
final bout. 

Unless cancelled by the new Athletic Program, 
the team looked forward to a more successful 
season next year, since only Searls and Dunn 



Tilley dribbles one down for another goal. 

V-/OACH "Pop" Warner's first season 
was eminently successful as Maryland's soccer 
team emerged on a par with the best in the coun- 
try, tying such topflight teams as Temple and 
Navy, and coming out with wins for the rest of 
the schedule. 

From the Terp's highly synchronized type of 
play It was hard to pick an outstanding player. 
However, fullback Kenny Ports was chosen on 
the All-American soccer team. Other standout 

players were Fetters at goal, halfback Clexeland, 
and forwards HuJak and Main

under the leadership of

P.M.S. 8bT. 


E. Wysor, Jr., the Univcrsicy of Nlaryland ROTC 
regiment offered the most varied training program 
of any unit in the Third Corps Area, and, as far 
as is known, in the country. 

The University was able to oOcr an obstacle 
course and a number of intercompany athletic 
programs for hardening and conditioning the 
cadets; a bayonet course lor training soon-to-be 
commissioned officers in the proper instructional 
methods for the bayonet; and a combat range 
which afforded the students an opportunity to fire 
musketry problems, by squads, at landscape tar- 
gets simulating battle conditions. 

The cadets learned how to post a guard by keep- 
ing a guard on the Armory and all military prop- 
erty 24 hours a day. Changes in the instructional 
program also became apparent when Colonel 
Wysor ordered that all classes be held out of doors 
as much as possible, so that students could ha\c 
an opportunity to execute tactical problems and 
practice scouting and patrolling. 

Juniors and seniors, instead ol learning higher 
military theory, were taught the detailed duties of 
the second lieutenant and all che phases of good 
platoon leadership In this way, the University 
took a leading role m training aggressive officers 
for the nation's fighting forces.

Honor guard impressed Lord Halifax. 



Somewhere around June 15, some 
seventy-odd ROTC officers put in an appearance 
at Fort George G. Meade to begin six weeks' 
training in the fine points of infantry tactics. This 
included days on the rifle, pistol, and automatic 
weapons ranges, tactical problems to be worked 
out by companies, night marches, and one long 
march with an overnight camp at the end, in the 
course of which the cadets learned the first names 
and family history of every wood tick on the

Between classes bull sessions 
were popular. 


Otudent mfe really began in Sep- 
tember when the frosh and the termites came cnic 
of the woodwork and made a mass attack on the 
campus. No sooner had the trosh settled down 
than football season began, interrupted by Thanks- 
giving and the holiday dances, sprinkled with a 
few classes here and there. The next big affair was 
O.D.K's tapping of Lord Halifax, followed by 
basketball and boxing seasons, and a midwinter 
drive for bundles, books, money and everything 
else conceivable for defense. Through all of this 
the ROTC program could be heard going ]mo 
high gear.
