HE ultimate meaning of democracy, 
like that of religion, is love. . . . For that, if for no other reason, democracy will 
survive ; because life itself would he destroyed if the forces of hate could permanently 
overcome the power of love. . . . 

For what a man loves, he will give his life. Also man w ill fight for that which he 
thinks is right. Thus as long as men are permitted to think freely, they will cling 
to democracy. 

In a democracy, one finds universities which offer fact and truth and reason and 
logic and friendship — foundations upon which to build love and understanding. 

Ever-present in such institutions are men who, through the years, have built 
wisely upon just such foundations, and who give their lives to the helping of the 
generations that follow, that their paths may be made smoother and happier. These 
men are loved. The University of Maryland during the past year lost two of its 
warmest friends. Dr. Levin Bowland Broughton and Dr. Charles Brockway Hale. 

And there are others who are called by circumstances to fight for democracy and 
the right to think freely. Many of these men have gone from the halls of the Uni- 
versity to make the supreme sacrifice upon the battlefields of the world. These 
men are also loved. 

To the memory of Dr. Broughton and Dr. Hale and to those students who have 
given their lives in the service of their country and to the students now fighting in 
the armed forces . . . that the hilt of the sword of today may be turned skyward 
to become the cross of tomorrow, We, the present students of the University of 
Maryland, dedicate the fifty-first yearbook. The Terrapin. 



IN MEMORIAM 



In memory of those boys whose lives have been given "over there" and 
to those ivho ivill agatn walk the paths of their beloved Alma Mater, this 
book is dedicated. We have built no monunK'nt lo our dead, no insincere 
scripture has been written for the living: there is only the deep love and 
gratefulness of the friends they left behind.

Dean C. O. Appleman 

This year marked the twenty-fifth 
anniversary of the establishment of the 
Graduate School at the University of 
Maryland. During this period of a

hundreds of students for success in the 
research, commercial, and teaching 
fields. 

In spite of a reduced faculty and 
greater teaching load, the Graduate 
School, under the direction of Dean 
Charles O, Appleman, continued to 
offer advanced training to those young 
men and women who sought work 
towards the masters and doctor of 
philosophy degrees.

l3ince the quarter system was initiated, 
graduation is now four times a year. Some of those that have been able to remain 
have completed their work in three years or less. However, many others have left 
us to join their country's call to the armed services. Nevertheless, student life has 
continued despite the many changes, and all of us look forward to the time when 
we will again have those peacetime bull sessions, formal dances, and the fraternity 
and sorority life of pre-war college days.

College of Agriculture 

THE College of Agriculture plans to train young men and women for agricultural 
and related occupations, and to conduct systematic investigations on projects 
of importance to agricultural interests. The curricula is divided into Technical, 
Scientific, and Special fields. 

Now, more than e\er before, great demands arc being made on the American 
farmer, for not only is he called upon to feed his own country but als(^ to help 
supply the many Allied armies with necessary foods. The College of Agriculture 
has strived to aid in every way possible in the war effort throughout Maryland.

College of Arts and Sciences 



Ti II-: College of Arts and Sciences 
provides an opportunity for a 
liberal education, and offers instruction 
in courses that provide basic training 
for professional and vocational careers. 

During the last school year, the Col- 
lege played an important part in pro- 
viding instruction in the courses re- 
quired under the Army Specialized 
Training Program and Foreign Area 
and Language Programs. The English, 
Modern Language, Mathematics, Phy- 
sics, Chemistry, History, and Political 
Science departments were particularly 
active in these curricula. 

A large number of the facult\ mem- 
bers are engaged in war work or in ac- 
tivities closely related to the war effort. 
The College continued to maintain a 
high standard of achievement in the

courses offered for pre-medical, prc- 
dental, pre-nursing, and pre-law stu- 
dents. .Also, the Physics Department 
was greatly expanded to meet the de- 
mands of the .\rm\ Specialized Train- 
ing Program.

College of 
Business and Public Administration 




Acting Dean J. Freeman Pyle 

THE College of Business and Public 
Administration offers training in 
business management, public adminis- 
tration, economics, marketing, person- 
nel, finance, taxation, accounting, for- 
eign serx'ice, natural resources, and 



other related fields of activity. The re- 
duced civilian registration made neces- 
sary a reduction in the number of elec- 
tives offered, but all required courses 
and enough electives are offered so that 
a student can meet the requirements 
for his degree and secure a fair degree 
of concentration in some special field. 

The College entered fully into the 
war activities of the University during 
the last school year. Courses were of- 
fered in the Language and Area Pro- 
gram and in the basic engineering cur- 
riculum under the Army Specialized 
Training Program, 

Plans are already being laid for the 
post-war period when a greatly in- 
creased demand on both the under- 
graduate and graduate levels is ex- 
pected.

College of Education 



WHILE "business as usual" has been 
impossible during wartime, the 
program of the College of Education 
has continued to move ahead. lor 
example, the past year saw the intro- 
duction of a series of student assem- 
blies, planned and administered by the 
Education students thcmsehes. At 
these social am.! professional meetings, 
undergraduates have had a new oppor- 
tunity to become acquainted with one 
another and with the faculty. 

.Another innovation has been the 
Reading Clinic, a service offering skilled 
direction and technical help to students 
who wish to correct reading deficiencies 
or to improNc their reading skills. 

Alert to inevitable post-war prob- 




Acting Dean Arnold E. Joyal 

lems, the College is preparing now for 
a greater and richer service to the 
schools of Mar\lani.l an>.l the Nation.

College of Engineering 




Dean S. S. Steinberg 

THE College of Engineering includes 
the departments of Chemical, Civil , 
Electrical, and Mechanical engineering 
in which a student may obtain his 
Bachelor's and Master's degrees. 



The principal objective of the col- 
lege during the present emergency is 
to provide the professional engineers 
needed to design and construct the 
tanks, ships, airplanes, and armament 
necessary for victory. It has been pre- 
paring men to become officers in the 
Army and the Navy, and has conducted 
classes for the men and women through- 
out the State of Maryland for war in- 
dustries to expedite production. 

In addition, the College has utilized 
its facilities to train enlisted men in the 
Army Specialized Training Program; 
has trained pilots for the Army and the 
Navy ; inspectors for aircraft factories, 
and safety engineers for industrial 
plants; and its faculty has carried on 
research of great value in the war 
effort.

College of Home Economics 




Dean Marie Mount 



THE College of Home Economics 
endeavors to prepare its students 
for homemaking as well as for work in 
professional fields. The latter is espe- 



cially important, since Home Eco- 
nomics trained women are vital today 
in our defense industries. Because of 
wartime demands, the college has laid 
emphasis on its course work, on con- 
servation of food and some supplies, 
and the renovation and care of clothing 
and home furnishings. 

After reaching their junior year, 
students elect a major from General 
Home Economics, Home Economics 
Education, Textiles and Clothing, 
Practical Art, Extension, Institutional 
Management, or Foods and Nutrition. 
The College of Home Economics also 
maintains a home management house 
in which senior girls gain practical ex- 
perience in the manifold problems of 
running a home.

School of Nursing 




f 



Superintendent Ivy B. Clifford 

THE vital need for trained nurses, 
both at home and abroad, has pro- 
vided an inspiration to the young wo- 
men of America to offer themselves for 
a work which will contribute much 



toward making the world a better 
place in which to live. This has been 
reflected by a greatly increased enroll- 
ment in the beginning classes at the 
University of Maryland School of 
Nursing. 

The accelerated course now being 
offered by the Maryland School of 
Nursing will not limit the student's 
opportunities for a successful career in 
a post-war world. The valuable expe- 
rience which is gained through contact 
with the Navy Nursing Corps should 
prove a fine supplement to the work in 
the nursing school. Nurses who join 
the corps do not feel they are making 
a sacrifice, for their only desire is to 
reinforce the courage of the men who 
are giving everything to preserve our 
nation.

ORGAA[IZATIO>^S 



Lost old clubs still continued their work 
this year, and several new ones took their place on campus. The Student Victory 
Council was formed to unite the students in their work toward working for that 
goal of peace. Several organizations were forced to become inactive because of the 
wartime depletion in membership, but those that did continue activities worked 
hard to keep going until the time when things could again be done on the larger 
scale of pre-war "Maryland" days.

Student Board 



Hi:.\DED by I'lannie Pfeiffer, the 
lust woman chairman, and h\ 
Roland Adams, who took o\-er at the 
start of the winter quarter, the Student 
Board, the link between the student 
body and tlic administration of the 
University, stro\e to increase school 
spirit and to bring about a closer re- 
lationship between civilians and the 
A. S.T. P. by sponsoring numerous drives 
and social affairs on the wartime 
campus. 

A backward glance over the past 
year reveals that the Student Board 
was extremely active. Its accomplish- 
ments included weekly dances and com- 
munity sings for both civilians and 
soldiers; the second Autumn Carnixal, 
which was highlighted by a Black and 
Gold Ball in the Coliseum ; the clean-up 



campaign headed by Phyllis Palmer; 
the Red Cross dri\e under Roland 
Adams; and a student assembly held in 
the Coliseum at which Theodore Mc- 
Keldin, mayor of Baltimore, was the 
principal speaker.

sisted of representatives from each 
sorority, fraternity, and dormitory as 
well as any students interested in work- 
ing on projects sponsored by the Coun- 
cil. Presidents for the year included 
Ruth Buchanan and Bob Bishton. 

Among activities sponsored by the 
Council was the Community War Fund 
drive which netted $1,500. During the 
first Blood Donor Drive, 443 pints of 
blood were donated by the students 
and the second drive yielded still more. 
Twelve cases of cigarettes were sent 
overseas as a result of the "Smokes for 
the Yanks" drive held during the fall 
quarter. The biggest success was the 
War Bond drive which secured $400,- 
000 worth of Bonds to buy a Fairchild 
Trainer.

Publications Board 



THE Publications Board, which is 
composed of five members of the 
faculty, the editors of the various stu- 
dent publications, and the president of 
Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary journalism 
fraternity; the Student Board and the 
Women's League, continued to serve 
Maryland publications in an advisory 
capacity. The Board members met 
regularly during the year to pass on 
new appointments for the various pub- 
lications and to decide other matters 



of policy and management. Two fac- 
ulty members of the Board ser\'ed the 
publications directly as advisors. 

Faculty members during the year 
included Acting Dean of Men James 
H. Reid, who served as chairman; 
Adele Stamp, Dean of Women ; Dr. 
Charles B. Hale, chairman of the De- 
partment of English; Dr. Charles E. 
White, of the Department of Chemis- 
try; and O. R. Carrington, of the De- 
partment of Publications.

Terrapin 

E\EN with photographer difficulties, 
advanced deadlines, and a budget 
reduced to a shoestring, the women 
staff members of the 1944 yearbook dis- 
proved the statement that this is a 
man's world and carried on the Terra- 
pin tradition in top order. 




Changes had to be made in every 
direction. Even the office was moved 
from its former position to rooms once 
occupied by the Old Line and Diamond- 
back. More than ever before the Ter- 
R.APiN portrayed a year of actix'ities on 
a wartime campus. 

Editor-in-Chief Martha Ann Cotter- 
man missed sleep and classes to keep 
appointments and meet deadlines; Bus- 
iness Manager Barbara Kephart defied 
tradition and proved that a woman can 
really balance a budget; Women's Edi- 
tor Lovie McDonnell did a sterling job

of looking after many pages of copy; 
Managing Editor Betty Jenkins han- 
dled layout and pictures like a veteran; 
and Sammy Brooks, the only male on 
the staff, contributed many fine pic- 
tures. Under the helpful guidance and 
watchful eye of Mr. Carrington the 
whole staff worked hard until that final 
deadline was met and the book went to 
press. 

In addition to Mr. Carrington's in- 
valuable aid we are indebted to Harry 
P. Lavelle of the Thomsen-Ellis-Hut- 
ton Co., Mr. Paul Love of Advertisers 
Engraving Co., and Mr. Joseph Young 
and Mr. Sidney Bayne of the Guild

Powers of the press. 



Diamondback 




TfiERES a war on" says your Dia- 
mondback through its continual 
publicity of war bond, blood donor, and 
Red Cross I-'uhlI i^lrives. But. behind 
the scenes of the newspaper, a rapid 
transition was being made from peace- 
time to wartime operations. Publica- 
tion was temporarily interrupted when 
the quarter system went into effect in 
July. 



Jackie Brophy, the first woman Edi- 
in-Chief in the history of the paper, 
took o\er in the summer quarter with 
a hanLliul of writers. War conditions 
restricted publications to once a week 
instead of the former t\\ ice a week. 

The members of the .X.S.r.P. took 
over the back page under the title of the 
"Gig Sheet." Columns such as "Mourn- 
ing Report and "Military Slant"

helped add spice to the sheet as well as 
to bring news of the A.S.T/s activities 
on campus. Other columns which be- 
gan in the fall quarter included "Dead- 
line Drivel written by Russ Schu- 
macher until his graduation in March 
when Arthur McDearmon took over. 
"Serving Uncle Sam" brought news of 
former University of Maryland stu- 
dents now in the armed forces. 

Les Bailey, Editor-in-Chief during 
the fall quarter, graduated in Decem- 
ber and the third editor of the year, 
Don Everson, took over the top job. 
"Campus Candicls" sprang up in the 
first issue of 1944 and alumni news be- 
came a definite part of the paper. 

Throughout the year the Diamond- 
back and the Student Board coordi- 
nated their work and supported one 



another on every project either started. 
The 1943-44 Diamondback continued 
its policy of presenting the facts despite 
the wartime difficulties constantly aris- 
ing on a wartime campus.

"M" Book 




Russell Schumacher 
Editor 



Tin-: exigencies of war created a 
much smaller " M" Book this fall, 
but that lVk\ not mean less work. The 
need for the booklet was announced a 
couple weeks before the end of the sum- 



mer quarter, and Russ Schumacher 
took over the job of organizing a staff 
and having the book read\- in printed 
form for the newl\-arri\ing freshmen. 

Russ was lucky to gather personnel 
with experience in publication work. 
Don Everson, as Managing Editor, had 
valuable contacts and knowledge of the 
printing business. Bob Spence and 
Jane Gambrill had experience on the 
Diamondback. Art OKeefe had worked 
on the Old Line. Janet Lingle was our 
typist and a loyal office worker. 

After several all night sessions and 
in spite of exam week, the book was 
ready for the printers. The mid-semes- 
ter holidays were broken up by fre- 
quent trips to the printer and at last 
the book appeared at a freshman rally 
in record time. Its purpose was to pre- 
sent an o\'er-all surxey of the campus 
to beginning students.

A MEMBER of the Intercollegiate

Line Network was one of the few col-

tinue activities during the year. Musi- 
cal programs ran the gammut from "Cats

ous classical programs. Campus news, 
Round Table discussions, and inter- 



views were also on schedule. 

Charles Mears headed the network

theatre tradition that "the show must

who piloted the club through several 
successful shows. 

The summer quarter was bright- 
ened by a production of Gertrude

Tonkonoghs "Three Cornered Moon." 
Bobbie McKee played her first lead in 
the part of Elizabeth Rimplegar and 
Ben W'illiamowsky added the "so they 
li\cd happily ever after" note in his 
role as Dr. Ste\'ens. Ihis was the last 
production directed by Dr. Hale. 

The next performance of the year 
was Sidney Howards "The SiUer 
Cord." Roberta Kells. in her last per- 
formance before graduation, gave us 
something to remember her by with her 
splendid portrayal of Mrs. Phelps. Mr.

Orchestra 



ONE of the most outstanding and 
active organizations on campus, 
tPie University of Maryland Student 
Concert Orchestra, outdid itself this 
year and completed one of its most 
successful seasons by taking part in 
numerous University functions. The 
orchestra was under the direction of 
Harlan Randall who was assisted by 
Joseph M. Powers. 

Membership in the organization was 
greatly increased this year as was re- 
vealed in the December concert held in 
the Agriculture auditorium. The or- 
chestra numbered almost forty mem- 
bers who worked hard and contributed 
to make the concert a great success. 
Concerts were also presented on cam- 
pus regularly each quarter. In addi- 
tion, the orchestra furnished the music 



for several teas and receptions, and was 
an important part of the graduation 
day programs. 

Civilian men and women students, 
as well as members of the Army Spe- 
cialized Training, were included in the 
group. By becoming a part of the Con- 
cert Orchestra, members enjoyed the 
advantages of securing further practice 
and instruction in playing their own 
particular instruments in addition to 
becoming better acquainted with other 
students and A.S.T.P. whose interests 
centered about the same field. 

During this year Bill HoUiday worked 
hard as president to guide the group's 
acti\"ities. He was assisted by the 
Vice-President, Bill Mickey; Secretary, 
Lois Walker; and Treasurer, Barbara 
Mum ford.

Women's Chorus 



TiiLv increased interest in musical 
activities this year on the Mary- 
land campus was evidenced by the 
growth in membership and the great 
success of the many repertoires pre- 
sented by the Women's Chorus. Under 
the guidance and leadership of Profes- 
sor Harlan Randall the group not only 
entertained on campus but also at 
many nearby communities in spite of 
wartime transportation Llifficulties. 

The chorus contributCLl its part to- 
ward National Defense when it sang 
for the servicemen at the United Serv- 
ice Organizations at Laurel ani.1 at .An- 
napolis. One of the most interesting 
trips was the visit to the Stage Door 
Canteen in Washington. 



We all remember the successful 
Christmas part\- that was held in the 
New Gym Armor\' just before the holi- 
days. In addition to the presentation 
of many well-known carols, there was 
a community sing in which the civilian 
students, as well as the members of the 
Army Specialized Training Program 
took part. Later in the school year, the 
group presented several other equally 
well-attended community sings. 

Heading the Women's Chorus in its 
many acti\ities was President Irene 
Lredrickson. who was assisted by 
X'ice-President Betty .Atkinson; Secre- 
tary Ramona Randall; and Treasurer 
\'i\ian Pruitt.

For those interested in horsemanship and the finer points of

diversions that helped to promote the club's popularity on 
campus. 



Guided by President Jerry Williams, the Women's Recrea- 
tion Association continued to work for the betterment of

activity until the time when their ranks could again be filled. In some cases scho- 
lastic requirements had to be altered, since the new quarter system found students 
graduating so quickly. With these honorary fraternities that carried on, everything 
was done to maintain their high standing, and activities continued with an eye

Omicron Delta Kappa 

SIGMA CIRCLE 

Honorary Leadership Fraternity 

Founded at WASHINGTON AND LEE UNIVERSITY in 1914 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1927 




OMICRON Delta Kappa, national 
honorary leadership fraternity 
for men, was faced this year with a 
problem which threatened its very ex- 
istence on campus. Departure of prac- 
ticalh' all acti\c members hardly left 
a nucleus with which to carry on the 
functions of the fraternity. Also, the 
depletion of the University's male en- 
rollment threatened to seriously cur- 
tail or eliminate the source of future 
qualified members. 

Meeting early in July, the remaining 
members agreed that, should all the 
student members graduateorbedrafted, 
responsibility for carrying on the func- 
tions of the society would rest with the 
four acti\e facultv members: Dean 



James Reid, Professor Russell Allen, 
Dr. Ronald Bamford, and Dr. William 
Kemp. It was also decided that e\'en 
if it cost membership, future members 
of the fraternity would be tapped 
on the basis of pre-war standards of 
leadership.

Senior Women's Honorary Society 

Founded at SWARTHMORE COLLEGE in 1918 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1934 




MORTAR Board, national honor so- 
ciety for senior college women, is 
the highest honor that can be bestowed 
upon any University of Maryland 
woman. Qualifications for membership 
are outstanding scholarship, leadership, 
and service. 

Although one of the smallest honor- 
ary organizations on campus, it is also 
one of the most active. This year Mor- 
tar Board sponsored after-dinner dances 
for the civilian and A.S.T.P. students. 
Interesting lectures were also given by 
representatives of the Nurses Cadet 
Corps, and the Marines. Other pro- 
jects of the year included the tradi- 
tional "Smarty Party"" for all sopho- 
more women with 32.7 average or bet- 
ter, a chrysanthemum "sale'" at home- 
coming, Charm talks, and a vocational 
bookshelf for women students. 



Because of the accelerated program 
of the University, it was necessary for 
Mortar Board to conduct three tap- 
ping ceremonies, one in September, one 
at the Christmas Sing, and another on 
May Day. 

Janet Andrea headed the group in 
the fall, while Marilyn Henderson took 
over in the winter and spring. Dr. 
Benton, Dr. Bamford, Dr. "Weeks, Miss 
Leslie, and Miss Stamp served as ad- 
visors for the honorary.

The fraternity took definite steps to-

While the elaborate publications ban- 
quet was dispensed with this year, an

IOTA CAST 

Honorary Dramatic Fraternity 

Founded at FAIRMOUNT STATE COLLEGE in 1925 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1929 




Kells 



Simmons 



Stuntz 



A LTHOUGH the War made the pro- 
jLX, duction of plays difficult, the 
Iota cast of Alpha Psi Omega continued 
to promote better drama at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. The society does 
not attempt to take the place of any 
organized theatrical group on campus, 
but simply provides a reward for achiex'e- 
ments in the dramatic field. 

Representing the best in local the- 
atrical talent, the requirements for 
membership in the honorary are neces- 
sarily strict. Students are tapped for 
the Footlight Club, Clef and Key, and 
Opera Club. This is necessary to ac- 
quire points for membership and the 
thespians must act, work on props, 
help build sets, and have a finger in 
almost every phase of the theatre in 
order to earn their points. A prospec- 
ti\-e actor must have taken several 
minor parts or two leading parts com- 



bined with a minor. 

The biggest thrill for any actor or 
actress at Maryland is to receive the 
white carnation at the intermission in- 
dicating that they are worthyof member- 
ship in Alpha Psi Omega. Every year 
the honorary gives a party for the 
members of the Footlight Club and 
presents an award to the individual 
who has given the best performance of 
the year at the University. 

Plans for the future include continued 
help to actors and playwriters on cam- 
pus. The playwriting contests of some 
years ago will be renewed with the hope 
of discovering new talent at the Uni- 
versity and it is planned to bring in 
speakers from other dramatic groups 
to talk on theatre problems.

Honorary Scholarship Fraternity 

Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF MAINE in 1897

MEMBERSHIP to Phi Kappa Phi,

of many a senior. The basic ideals in- 
include excellent scholarship and de- 
velopment of character. 

r^or a senior to attain membership, 
he must be in the upper ten per cent of 
his respective college. Since the Uni- 
\ersity has changed to the quarter sys- 
tem, it has been necessary to tap every 
quarter in order to include all seniors 
eligible. Graduate students may be 
recommended for tapping b\' faculty 
members of the organization. 

To promote Phi Kappa Phis aims 
and in order to produce incentive to- 
wards further achievements in grad- 
uate work, several fellowships are 
offered each year.

Among the activities sponsored by 
_/\_ Sigma Tau Epsilon during the 
Near was the publication of a At'ir^- 
Letter which was mailed to Physical 
Education alumnae, members of the 
Women's Recreation Association, and 
Sigma Tau Epsilon. These letters in- 
formed the alumnae of the activities of 
their former classmates and other cam- 
pus news. 

Sigma Tau Epsilon also sponsored 
an Alumna W. R. A. varsity basketball 
game, an event which the alumnae 
always looks forward to with much 
interest each year. 

Since its establishment in 1940. 
Sigma Tau Epsilon has worked in co- 
ordination with the Women's Recre- 
ation .Association in sponsoring intra- 
mural sports. Founded to encourage 
leadership, good sportsmanship, and to 
stimulate participation in recreation, 
Sigma Tau Epsilon is the highest honor 



one may achieve in the Women's Rec- 
reation .Association. 

Requirements for membership in this

INITIATION into Omicron Xu, Home 
Economics national honor society, 
is the highest honor a girl in the College 
of Home Economics can receive. This 
society has as its purpose the encour- 
agement of high scholarship as well 
as active interest in the field of 
home economics. The averages are 
selected from the upper one-fourth of 
the students having junior rating. The 
chapter selects from these lists, not over 
fifteen per cent of those having senior 
rating and not over five per cent of 
those having junior rating. 

Following a tradition of long stand- 
ing each year Omicron Nu presents an 
award to the freshman girl in the Col- 
lege of Home Economics who has the 



highest scholastic average. Last >ear 
this award went to Ruth Lingle. 

Omicron Nu has been on the Mary- 
land campus since 1937 when it was in- 
stalled as the Alpha Zeta Chapter. The 
fraternity was unusually active during 
the past year and contributed much 
toward the war effort. Nancy Spies 
served as president during the year.

SPORTS A7s[D 
MILITART 



Oports and military training were still 
to continue this year despite the low ebb in the number of participants. Boys were 
trained in ROTC to prepare them for the real battle they were to fight later on 
for their country. Intercollegiate football, basketball and boxing were the same 
as ever with the games and matches still spurred on by student cheers. Other sports 
continued in the form of intramurals, but the spirit remained high and the compe- 
tition keen.

Physical Education Program 




Dr. Spears 

WITH the establishmentoftheArmy 
Specialized Training Program at 
the various universities throughout the 
country, the Government laid down 
specific requirements for the physical 
training of these men. Since all of the 
A. ST. P. weretobe put through this pro- 
gram and the civilian students who 
were physically fit would be entering 
the serxicc in the immediate future, it 
was decided that no distinction be 
made between these two groups in 
physical training. 

The physical education program at 
the University of Maryland was set up 
under the direct supervision of l^r. 
Clarence W. Spears, who brought in a 
number of outstanding instructors to 
take care of various phases of the work. 
.Ml men were required to take six hours 
of physical education a week. F^art 



of this time was devoted to calisthenics 
and the rest in a program consisting 
mainly of competiti\'e sports. In addi- 
tion, all civilian students who were 
unable to participate in regular physi- 
cal training were placed in adaptive 
work and given exercises suitable to 
their capacity. 

Supplementary to this compulsory 
program, volunteer intramural sports 
were offered. There was touch football, 
basketball, and boxing in the winter 
quarter for both the civilian students 
and members of the Army Specialized 
Training. Teams were organized among 
the fraternities as well as among the 
non-resident students and the two 
leagues participated extensivcK' in the 
program. Out of 450 ci\ilian students 
280 took part in the physical education 
program. 

During the spring quarter the pro- 
gram was conducted along the same 
basis and each man was again allowed 
to make his choice of the sport in which 
he wished to take part. Gym work, cor- 
rective exercises, tennis, baseball, track, 
and football were offered. .All sport 
activities were organized on a competi- 
tive basis and the men were trained and 
organized into teams which played a 
regular schedule. 



88 




Male students keep physically fit. 



Since the University did not support 
the intercollegiate sports program this 
spring, it was felt that many men who 
had never been out for a varsity sport 
would benefit from this opportunity to 
take part in a competitive sport and 
learn fundamentals under a coach. 



Dr. Spears and his staff deserve 
much credit for the fine showing made. 
The program more than measured up 
to the requirements of the A.S.T.P. and 
offered countless opportunities for un- 
covering latent athletic ability among 
the male students. 





Plenty of punch!

Football 




Coach Spears 



THE University of Maryland foot- 
ball team, suffering from a bad 
case of non-experience, tackled a near 
all-service schedule and surprisingly 
enough came up with results that 
astonished the most ardent of Mary- 
land followers. 

Clarence W. Spears, former football 
mentor at Dartmouth, West Virginia, 
Minnesota, and Toledo, stepped into 
the coaching shoes vacated by Clark 
Shaughnessy last spring and was con- 
fronted with the job of moulding a 
Maryland team from 1 7-year-olds and 
draft deferments.

The Old Liners raised the curtain on 
their 1943 campaign at College Park by 
dropping a close 1 3-7 decision to the 
Curtis Bay Coast Guard. The young 
Terps took command of the sphere at 
the outset and was definitely the more 
aggressive team in the first three quar- 
ters. However, going into the final 
stanza with a 7-0 lead, the Liners met 
an entirely different team. The sailors 
took to the air and in a short time 
pushed over two rapid-fire touchdowns 
before the final gun, to finish up on the 
long end of a i 3-7 score. 

In a true storybook ending, the 
Maryland gridmen defeated the fa- 
vored Wake Forest Deacons 1 3-7 in 
their second home stand. With the 
score tied at 7-all, and less than ten 



seconds left to play, Maryland was 
penalized back to its own 1 1 for an off- 
side. Quarterback Joe Makar threw a 
desperate pass that connected with 
Dick Tuschak on the 25. Dick did as 
neat a performance of broken field run- 
ning as Byrd Stadium ever witnessed, 
galloping 75 yards down the sidelines 
for a touchdown as the referee's gun 
signed finis to one of the most spectacu- 
lar football finishes in the country. This 
play was given honorable mention in a 
poll to determine the "most talked 
about play of the year." 

Maryland continued at a high pitch , 
for their next game with the Richmond 
Army Air Base, and as a result played 
flawless ground and air ball, shoving 
over three first half touchdowns to

score of 19 b. 

The Liners" attack failed to sustain 
its first half momentum, but as Mary- 
land bogged down on offense the>' 
perked up on defense and turned back 
every serious threat to their lead by 
the flyers. 

Doc Spears, returning to West \'ir- 
ginia University where he created a 
golden era of football for the Moun- 
taineers during his four \ears' stay as 
grid mentor, saw his Old Idners become 
the \ ictim of a freak play and lose a 
heartbreaking 6-2 measure at Morgan- 
town. 

Buddy Pike, West Virginia fresh- 
man, came rushing in on Joe Makar 



who was attempting to get off a pass on 
the rain-soaked turf, and scooping up 
the soggy ball at shoe-top level as it 
slipped out of the Marylander's hands, 
ran unmolested for a touchdown The 
Liners' only score came as a Moun- 
taineer back fumbled and jumped on 
the ball in the end rone for a safety. 

The Old Liners reached far out of 
their class when they invited a rugged 
and ra-zle-daz-le Penn State team to 
square off on the gridiron. The Marine 
and Navy studded elcxcn that housed 
former college players with senior ex- 
perience plowed through an outweighted 
and outclassed Terp line for a 45 o 
win. Weakened by the loss of a dozen 
key opcratixcs, the Marylanders were 



02 



unable to get past their own 38-yard 
marker in the first half, and were only 
able to penetrate to midfield in the 
second canto. 

With the taste of defeat still fresh, 
the Liners journeyed deep in the South 
to Greenville, South Carolina, to take 
on the Greenville Army Base. An im- 
proved and determined Maryland team 
rolled back home with a well-earned 
43-18 win to their credit. 

Virginias Coach Frank Murray 
served a much more potent ""T" than 
Coach Spears could concoct down Vir- 
ginia way, and when the battle smoke 
had cleared, a young Maryland squad 
trudged off the field on the very short 
end of a 39-0 score. The Maryland men 
fared no better the following Saturday 



when they visited the Bainbridge Naval 
Training Station and were met with a 
galaxy of former professional and col- 
lege football stars who took turns in 
crossing the Terp goal line to the tune 
of a 46-0 count. 

The Maryland gridders concluded 
their season on a sweet note by trounc- 
ing the Virginia Military Institute 
21-24 in a Turkey Day event in Roa- 
noke. The Old Liners played one of 
their best ground games of the season 
as they outrushed the Keydets by the 
overwhelming figures of 2,557 yards to 
85 yards. The Terps put together three 
touchdowns and a safety for the margin 
of victory, ringing down the curtain on 
a season of four wins and five defeats.

Basketball 




Coach Burton Shipley 

VETERAN coach Burton Shipley 
thought he would never see the 
day when seventeen-year-olds would 
grace an Old Line varsity quintet, but 
with the loss of all hut one of his letter- 
men, the court mentor had little choice. 



TheMarylanders tested theirstrength 
by scheduling three games before the 
mid-year holidays with the Quantico 
Marines, Marshall College, and Bain- 
bridge Naval Training Station. The 
result was three alarming set-backs, 
and a display of the team's weak points. 

Following vacation the Liners sus- 
tained one bad break after another, 
the most serious being the loss of Ship- 
ley who fractured both of his legs early 
in the season. Lacrosse coach .\1 
Heagy took o\er the court duties and 
within a week produced Maryland's 
first win — a 43-36 triumph over V.M.I . 

Despite repeated turnbacks, the 
Terps bounded back to pull out one ot 
the major upsets of the season in edging 
out Catholic University, leading con- 
tender in the Mason-Dixon Conference, 
by the score of 33-31 in as exciting a

of despair by Virginias 49-36 win, the 
Liner's registered an impressive 48-26 
victory over the star-studded Woodrow 
Wilson General Hospital five at Col- 
lege Park. 

On the last leg of its southern road 
trip, Maryland secured its fourth and 



final win of the season by tripping 
V.M.I, again, 31-29. Navy and Army 
rounded off the bumpy campaign by 
pounding out lopsided home wins. The 
Tars defeated the College Parkers 69-

feated cage team broke all individual

in walloping the hapless Liners 85-22.

Boxing 




^W*^ ^^Jlf4 



Coach Fausto Rubini 

THE ever-tightening noose of war- 
time restrictions left the Uni- 
versity as the only college in the state 
to carry on intercollegiate boxing. This 
placed a great responsibility upon the 
new coach, Fausto Rubini, especialK' 



in \-iew of the fact that he had only one 
letterman, Alex Bobenko, who proved 
a great fighter and completed the season 
undefeated. 

Ed Gauvin took over boxing duties 
in the dif^cult 120-pound class, and 
Bill Coakley showed promise in the 
127-pound class. Sixteen-year-old Ray 
Hanbury came through with two 
knockouts to his credit while \'ic Bar- 
man produced a neat record in the 145- 
pound class. Sid Stcrman, the Old 
Liner's "hard luck boy,"" kept the ib5- 
pound class well protected, while slug- 
ging brank Doory, whose fights were a 
favorite with the crowd, had an out- 
standing record. Burly Danny Marc- 
witz took the measure of the heav\- 
weights in the unlimited class.

Liners came through with a 4' _> to 3J/2

Women's Intra murals 




Dr. Benton 



Women's intramurals are directed 
by the Women's Recreation As- 
sociation under the sponsorship of the 
Department of Physical Education for 
Women. With the cooperation of day- 
dodgers, dormitory, and sorority mem- 
bers, recreational activities continued 



to flourish on campus in spite of the 
wartime restrictions. A complete and 
well rounded program of athletic ac- 
tivities were presented for the Mary- 
land coeds, and all the familiar sports 
featured were enthusiastically accepted 
by the girls. 

Each sport is managed by a different 
member of the Women's Recreation 
Association board and her assistant. 
A sports representative from each 
house of residence cooperates with the 
manager in organizing and carrying 
through tournament competition. 
Teams are made up from girls in the 
various houses as well as members of 
the numerous classes offered in Physi- 
cal Education. 

Fall activities included inter-class 
hockey, inter-house bowling, and in- 
dividual competition in archery. Dur-

a highly disciplined organization de-

Three companies composed the 
ROTC battalion, making it one of 
the smallest units in the history of the

interest in drill, and the result far sur-

cessful night maneuvers were made as 
realistic as possible by the participa- 
tion of several light tanks from Fort

ROTC Band 



AT the beginning of the summer 
jTx. quarter of 1943, the ranks of the 
Maryland ROTC Band were sorely de- 
pleted by the draft. However, through 
the cooperation of Colonel Griswold 
and the Military Department, mu- 
sicians in the Army Specialized Train- 
ing Program at the University were 
permitted to join the University band. 
Although participation was optional, 
the members of the A.S.T.P. turned out 
in such large numbers that the band 
was restored to its pre-war size. 

During the summer the band fur- 
nished music for the drill periods on 
Tuesdays and Thursdays of the ROTC 
and A.S.T.P. battalions respectively. 



The band was also on hand for either a 
review or a troop parade almost every 
Thursday. Many of these were in 
honor of visiting military dignitaries. 

Running close competition with the 
first company, the band placed second 
when the ROTC had its quarterly com- 
pany competition. This was the first 
time in the band's history that it has 
received an award of this type. 

Besides playing for reviews and drill 
periods the band, under the able direc- 
tion of Master Otto Seibeneichen, 
played at numerous football games, 
basketball games, and boxing matches, 
which helped immeasurably in main- 
taining school spirit.

Army Specialized 

Training Program 



THIS war is different from the one in 
which our fathers fought since it 
is fast moving and specialized to a high 
degree; the average soldier cannot 
handle the complicated machines of 
war without a great deal of training. 
This primarily is the reason why the 
Army Specialized Training Program 
was organized. 

The A.S.T.P. embraces two basic 
courses as well as some about which 
the civilian world knows nothing. 
Engineering and languages are the 
principle schedules offered by this pro- 



gram which has as its purpose the train- 
ing of men in highly specialized fields 
so that competent soldiers may be on 
call to any technical job on our fighting 
fronts over the world. 

Under the able guidance of Colonel 
Griswold and his staff, this program 
has proved extremely successful during 
the past year. 

During the summer quarter, Col . Har- 
land Griswold organized the A.S.T.P. 
men into four companies which moved 
into all available buildings on the cam- 
pus. Capt. George Dunlap, Capt.

their basic Engineering and Language 



courses. The A.S.T. trainees easily fell 
into the routine of Maryland college 
life, taking over a page of the Diamond-

houses and the women's dormitories,

in behalf of the fraternities and the 
University. 

The present war conditions and the 
part they have played in painting a 
dark picture for fraternities, have sub- 



sequently increased the problems that 
arose, such as re\ising the rush rules to 
meet the needs of the fraternities and 
the Uni\ersity during wartime. 

The annual Interfraternity Ball was 
held this year in conjunction with the 
annual dance of the Pan-Hellenic Coun-

Bill Gordon headed the handful of 
members still here during the summer.

The war neither extinguished nor 
dinnmed the lighted S.A.M. octagon on 
the red brick house atop Knox Road. 

With only eighteen actives during 
the year, the fraternity led first by 
Ray Kalven and later by Paul Pum- 
pian, continued to stand high in schol- 
arship, social activities and athletics. 
Members were represented in various 
campus projects, such as publications, 
musical organizations and Hillel Foun-

Pan-Hellenic Council 



THE Pan-Hellenic Council continued 
its policy of promoting good fel- 
lowship among the sisters in the ten 
sororities on campus. This was main- 
tained by holding monthly meetings at 
various sorority houses in order to dis- 
cuss problems confronting the Greek 
organizations. One of the most impor- 
tant projects accomplished this year 
was the revision of the Pan-Hellenic 
Constitution to fit the new wartime 
quarter plan at the University. 

The Council served as a mediator 



during rushing, saw that rushing regu- 
lations were maintained, and subjected 
offenders to specific penalties. Other 
activities included getting the sorori- 
ties on campus to cooperate with the 
Red Cross, Blood Donor and War 
Bond drives which did much to put 
these projects "over the top."

BETA PHI CHAPTER 

was founded at Wesleyan Female College 

in 1851 

and established at the University of 

Maryland in 1940. 




BETA Phi chapter of Alpha Delta Pi 
enjoyed another year of \aried 
activities and leadership on the Mary- 
land campus. 

A "Red Sock" party introduced the 
fall season of social events for all AM). 
Pi's (jn campus. Following this, the 
annual pledge formal proved to be one 
of the year's highlights, and featured 
an all-girl orchestra from Washington. 

Pajama parties proved very popular 
all year-round. At one, Bobbie Bur- 
dette caused not a little excitement 
when she made an extensi\'e tour of the 
house while sleep-walking. 

The A.D.Pi"s, with the assistance of 
the A.S.T.'s, transformer! the unused 
basement of the chapter house into a 
\ery adequate recreation room — with 
furniture and everything. 

The Christmas party, well remem- 
bered because of the frequent fuse- 
blowing, was a great success. The 
Yuletide spirit carried over to Christ- 



mas Eve for the marriage of Mable 
Klebold at the chapter house. The 
.X.D.Pis again kept up their tradition 
of serving refreshments to the partici- 
pants of the Uni\ersity Caroling Ser\- 
ice during the holiday season. 

Alpha Delta Pi was well represented 
by competent teams in all the inter- 
sorority tournaments, and by numer- 
ous members in both \\ .R.A. and 
Sigma Tau Epsilon. 

Turning to the more serious side of 
college and scholarship, Betty Beggs 
was initiated into Alpha Lambda Delta, 
while Mildred Whitlow made Omicron 
Nu. 

The \ arious Blood- Banks and War 
Bond i.lri\cs were enthusiastically sup- 
ported by the .A. D. Pi's. This together 
w ith keeping up the morale of the L'ni- 
versity in general and members of the 
.AST. in particular proxided ne\-er a

MORTAR Board honors, Diamond- 
back participation, and numer- 
ous social functions highlighted the 
year for Gamma Phi Beta. 

President Ruth Startzman, Barbara 
Nutwell Simmons, Ruth Buchanan, 
and Ruth Blackwell distinguished them- 
selves as members of Mortar Board. 
In addition. Ruth Buchanan was Presi- 
dent of Women's League, Chairman of 
the X'ictory Council and helped to 
christen one of the planes purchased 
by the students. Bobbie Reed acquired 
one more honor with her position as 
Business Manager of the Diamond- 
back. 

Mrs. R. D. Hensel, our new house 
mother, was introduced to the campus 
at a tea on January 23. The expression 
"full house"' took, on a realistic mean- 
ing during Gamma Phi Beta Week 
when Gamma Phis from all aroun^l 
came to help celebrate. 



Recollections of the past year will al- 
ways include Joyce Murdock's rhumba 
technique, Ruth Buchanan and her 
accordion, and the paper forms of 
Bobby Rivenburgh and Phyllis Brooks. 
Ruth Startzman on a pair of crutches 
was a familiar sight on campus as well 
as arouni.1 the house, hootlight props 
sometimes threatened to overrun the 
house; however, the daydodgers room 
could always be counted on as refuge.

BETA ZETA CHAPTER 

was founded at Colby College in 1874 

and established at the University of 

Maryland in 1940. 






ONE of the most important steps 
taken by the Sigma Kappas dur- 
ing the year was the acquisition of their 
new home, the former Alpha Tau 
Omega house. While the brothers are 
off to the war the Sigma Kappas are 
making the most of their attractive 
home, as may be seen from some of the 
social activities held this year. 

Starting with an open house tea, at 
which time Mrs. T. J. Randolph, the 
new house mother, was presented to the 
campus, the sorority followed through 
the year with many social and informal 
gatherings, such as pajama parties, 
Sunday night buffet suppers, ani.1 in- 
formal teas to get acquainted witb 
nearby chapters. 

Activities were planned with an eye 
toward the war effort as well as toward 



sociability. Dances were given for the 
members of the A.S.T. on campus, and 
officers from Fort Meade were invited 
to the annual Christmas formal. Friday 
nights found some of the Sigma Kappas 
helping still more in the war effort by 
acting as hostesses at the Stage Door 
Canteen. 

Sigma Kappa contributed to the 
Blood Bank, as well as to the many 
war drives, and ranked second in the 
campusjunk jewelry dri\e. Our pledges 
sponsored a dri\ c to supply the men at 
the Naval Hospital in Washington with 
assorted kits which not only proved to 
be extremely useful, but also helped to 
brighten some servicemen's Christmas. 

Man> Sigma Kappas held offices on 
campus this year. Peggy Carpenter 
acted as vice-president of the Wesley 



134 



Club and Lois Walker was secretary of 
the orchestra. President Betty Mono- 
crusos, who was secretary of the Pan- 
Hellenic Council, guided the sorority 
during the enjoyable and profitable

DOTTiE CosEBOOM and Marjorie 
[^alk, vice-chairman and secre- 
tary respectively of the Student Vic- 
tory Council made the Tri-Delts doubly 
conscious of air-raid regulations and 
blackouts during the past year. In 
fact they became so conscientious o\er 
their jobs that more than once the 
house was blacked out when the local 
fire sirens were sounded. In addition 
to their activities, Dottie was selected 
to christen one of the three Fairchild 
Trainer planes purchased through the 
war bond drive, and Marjorie was in 
charge of the very successful "Smokes 
for the "banks'" Drive. 

Our president, Edith Simmons, served 
as presiding officer of I'ootlight Club 
and Alpha Psi Omega, honorary dra- 
matic fraternity, in the middle of the 
year, Louise Owings replaced jciun 
Rudelius as treasurer of the Footlight 
Club. Jean, also first vice-chairman of 



the Student Board, headed the com- 
mittee for the "Jingle Ball" which was 
sponsored by that organization. 

Edith Dunford presided over Mortar 
Board, Senior Women's Honorary Fra- 
ternity, and Sigma Tau Epsilon, Ath- 
letic Honorary Fraternity for women. 

Other actixitics for the year included

BETA ETA CHAPTER 

was founded at Lombard College in 1893 

and established at the University of 

Maryland in 1934. 




Till-; Alpha Xi's plungeJ headlong 
into the activities for the year. 
During the summer they were awarded 
the coveted Gamma Phi Beta Scholar- 
ship Cup. The Homecoming Cup for 
the best house decoration came into 
their possession in the fall, after Kibby 
Ray, Ruth Osann, Jane Turner, Nancy 
Spies, and June Rightor sacrificed a 
night's sleep to achieve this goal. The 
Junk Jewelry Dri\'e, under the leader- 
ship of Lou Aiello, was a great success 
with more than 4,000 pieces collected. 
Scholarship was stressed through the 
traditional Steak and Mush dinner 
which everyone is required to attend 
so that she may either receive her 
award or suffer her punishment. 

The Ice Capades in Washington 
brought a turn-out of all the girls to 
watch their sister, Pat Richards, per- 
form the beautiful figures she does on 
skates. Kate Schmoll contributed her 
services to the country by cnli.sting in 
the WAVES. 

This year marked the tenth anni- 



versary of the founding ot .Mpha Xi 
on the Maryland campus. This called 
for a special celebration for all members 
— new and old — which was put o\cr in 
a big way by Dorothy .Aiello. 

June Cameron was elected Women's- 
Member-at-Large and secretary-treas- 
urer of Women's League ; Evelyn \ len- 
dum was tapped by Phi Kappa Phi; 
Nancy Spies was elected president ot 
Omicron Nu; \ irginia Raymond be-

Aiello was vice-president of the Span-

PI DELTA CHAPTER 

was founded at Barnard College in 1897 

and established at the University of 

Maryland in 1924. 




A the head of College Avenue is 
the red brick mansion with the 
white columns that is the home of the 
A.O.Pi"s. Led by prexy Irene Fred- 
rickson, who was also president of the 
Women's Chorus and treasurer of the 
Pan-Hellenic Council, the girls went 
in for a number of activities. Pat Lass- 
well, first vice-chairman of the Student 
Board, conducted various philanthropic 
projects, such as selling magazine sub- 
scriptions to raise funds for the support 
of a department of the Frontier Nur- 
sing Service and collecting toys and 
books for the Children's Hospital at 
Christmas. 

The presidency of Women's League 
and secretaryship of Mortar Board 
kept Dotty Merkel busy. Jay Andreae, 
past A.O.Pi president and treasurer of 
the Pan-Hellenic Council, was elected 
president of Mortar Board. Jay was 
also in Pi Delta Epsilon and Phi Kappa 
Phi and in any good bridge game; only 
she got her man and left us. "Little 
Boo" Boswell, who went to Florida for 



Christmas and came back a luscious 
tan, held down the offices of secretary- 
treasurer of the Student Board and 
vice-president of Mortar Board. Vivian 
Pruitt was on the Student Musical Ac- 
tivities Committee. Jan Jordan, a 
transfer from Northwestern University, 
and "Pete " Peterson were quite musi- 
cal too, but they special izci.1 in boogie- 
woogie duets. Kitty Briggs, another 
transfer but from the Deep South, was 
society editor of the Diamondback. 
Susie Randall's extra-curricular work 
led her to Annapolis and she ended up 
with a Naval Academy miniature. But 
the main activity participated in by all 
the girls was letter-writing every night 
and anxious waiting for the postman 
at lo o'clock each morning.

THE man shortage hit the l\appa 
Deltas just as it hit everyone; but, 
to boost morale, the sororit>" adopted 
first a baby boy and then a K.O. papa. 
The boy was fn-e-year-old Mel\>n 
Jones, an English refugee, and the papa 
is the vacation house guard. 

In August the first annual con\en- 
tion of the officers of Alpha Province

was given the Progress Award for their 
accomplishments of the past two years.

ALPHA MU CHAPTER 

was founded at Barnard College in 1909 

and established at the University of 

Maryland in 1943. 



COMPLETING our first year as active 
Alpha Epsilon Phi members the 
girls of Alpha Mu have many happy 
memories to look back on. 

The highlight of the past year for 
.'\lpha Epsilon Phi on the Maryland 
campus was the crowning of Sister 
Vivian Smelkinson as War Bond Queen 
of the 1944 War Bond Contest which 
was held on the campus in March. 
Alpha Epsilon Phi led the campus 
with a total of $153,220. In addition, 
we pledged a fine group of eighteen 
girls. 

Socially the sororit\ has been in a 
whirl for the whole twelve months. In 
the fall we were honored by ha\ing 
our National Dean, [-"lo Orringer, who 
visited the chapter house for nearly a 
week. Later six A. E. Phi's from Hunter 
College visited us in F-'ebruary and we 



gave a party in their honor which was 
termed the success of the season. 

In scholarship Jean Kaplan main- 
tained the honor of the sorority by 
being initiated into Sigma Alpha Omi- 
cron, national honorary bacteriology 
fraternity; and Estelle Wolowitz rep- 
resented the sorority in the Footlight 
Club. The Scrap and the Blood Donor 
Campaigns had the support of the 
.Alpha Mu's. 

To compare notes with some ol our 
sorority sisters from schools in the New 
\'ork area, we visited them and were 
in\ited to a Tri-Chapter Tea at Hunter 
College. The Tea was held at the beau- 
tiful, old Roosevelt House at Hunter 
College. 

In addition to celebrating the first 
anniversary of our membership in 
Alpha Epsilon Phi, we also celebrated 



144 



the first anniversary of Mrs. Ruark's 
service with us as house mother.

BETA ALPHA CHAPTER 

was founded at Hunter College in 1913 

and established at the University of 

Maryland in 1936. 




THE Phi Sigma Sigmas not only 
maintained their outstanding rec- 
ord in "all out for victory" efforts, but 
also added their own "all out for good 
fun" campaign. High spots among 
these activities were the annual House 
Mothers' Banquet, given for the house 
mothers of all fraternity and dormitory 
groups ; open house teas ; and the Coed 
Canteen, which welcomed the .A. ST. P. 
men to the University. 

All was not play for the Phi Sigs, 
however, as was proven by their earn- 
ing first place in the jewelry drive, 
donating blood, topping all sororities 
in contributions for "Smokes for the 
^anks," knitting for the Red Cross, 
salvaging scrap, donating $50.00 to the 
Community Chest k'und, and con- 
tributing to Phi Sig's national cam- 
paign for the purchase of a clubmobile 
to be given to the Red Cross. 



These general projects did not hin- 
der the individual activities of the girls, 
for never a week passed without Betsy 
Weinstein, Betty Barban, Phyllis Wol- 
pert, Ruth Singer, and Jeanne De La 
Viez going over to Walter Reed Hos- 
pital to help cheer the spirits of the 
boys. Cherie Packman, a fetching 
nurse's aide, did her share at Sibley 
Hospital, while Evie StoU and Lucille 
Stein busied themselves with the 
.A.W.V.S. 

Betty Barban, Women's League Rep- 
resentative, was instrumental in torm- 
ing the Off-Campus Council, while 
Lila Berkman worked on bootlight 
activities. Irene Caplan divided her 
time between the Diamondback and the 
Victory Council, and Lynn Raskin was 
chosen to be a member of the Home- 
coming Queen's Court. Marian Sha- 
piro found time to become a member 



146 



of Sigma Alpha Omicron and Zelda 
Goodstein was elected to Phi Kappa 
Phi.
