DEDICATION 



Dedicated to Glenn L. Martin, who stands as a symbol of the progress to come for 
a great nation and for this University as a part of the nation. 

As his contribution to aeronautics has been an integral part in the winning of victory 
it will also aid in the maintaining of a peace complete with understanding and sympathy 
for all humanity. The vast interest and incalculable aid Mr. Martin has given to the 
University toward the furthering of aeronautical engineering and research will not stop 
here but will spread out in ever-expanding circles to encompass the nation and ulti- 
mately the earth. 

Through aircraft, nations will be bound more closely; through a knowledge of air- 
craft and its meanings our students will be ready to accept the challenge offered in a 
new world. Glenn L. Martin has made possible for us, the men and women of tomor- 
row, to carry forward the standards of progress after the flags of embittered nations 
have been dropped forever.

The Graduate School Council, primarily concerned 
with establishing requirements for degrees and inves- 
tigating and approving candidates, has continued to 
train students in the field of research, teaching and 
commerce. The Council, composed of the faculty, 
who are instructors in the school, offers instruction to 
college graduates, holders of Master's degrees, and 
advanced under-graduate students at College Park 
and in Baltimore. 

Dean of the Graduate School Council since the es- 
tablishment of that department in 1919 is Dr. Charles 
O. Appleman. Doctor Appleman received his degree 
of Doctor of Philosophy in Bacteriology at the Uni- 
versity of Chicago after graduating from Dickinson 
College, where he specialized also in botany and 
plant physiology. Before assuming his duties at Mary- 
land University, Dean Appleman traveled widely, 
covering Mexico, Canada, and most of the United 
States. 

With the cooperation of the Federal Research cen- 
ter at Beltsville and the laboratories of the Bureaus of 




Dka.^ C. O. Applhman 



Mines and Fisheries on the campus, facilities for grad- 
uate work have been increased. Industrial firms and 
the Federal Government have established fellowships, 
giving outside support to graduate and research work. 
Although the teaching staff has decreased and the 
number of students increased, the Graduate School 
Council continued to offer facilities for study leading 
toward all graduate degrees. The degrees offered are 
Master of Art, Master of Science, Master of Educa- 
tion, Master of Business Administration, and the de- 
gree of Doctor of Philosophy.

Responsible for the beginnings of the College Park 
branch of the University of Maryland is the College 
of Agriculture. In its Technical, Scientific, and Spe- 
cial fields, the College of Agriculture has trained stu- 
dents for agricultural and related occupations, and 
conducted systematic investigations on projects of im- 



College of 
Agriculture 



portance to agricultural interests concerning the home 
and the farm. 

Its four principal functions are Resident Instruction, 
Research, Extension and Regulatory. Not only does 
the College fit its young men and women for one or 
more of the fields requiring specialized training, hut 
it provides sufficient cultural subjects to give a 
rounded education. 

Today the American farmer is more important to 
the world than he has ever been. He is feeding an 
America and a world at war. The College of Agricul- 
ture is fitting young people for a today of war and 
a tomorrow of peace.

College of Arts and Sciences 




Acting Dean J. Freeman Pyle 

The College of Arts and Sciences provides a bread 
education in the liberal arts and sciences. In the 
junior and senior years, the student completes a close- 
ly unified group of courses leading toward vocational, 
professional, or cultural goals. The v/ork of the last 
two years is divided into four Upper Divisions, 
grouped under the following departments: Biological 
Sciences, Humanities, Physical Sciences and Social 
Sciences. 




Looking III oil one oj the many classes. 

Despite the fact that many of its staff has left the 
University to engage in active war work, the College 
of Arts and Sciences has continued to maintain high 
standards and to offer the best courses possible for 
pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-law students. 

Although many of the Army Specialized Training 
students left the University early in the year, those 
who remained were trained by the College in those 
subjects required. 





Taking full advantage of the proximity of two 
large metropolitan centers to study the problems of 
economics and commerce, the College of Business and 
Public Administration, formerly the College of Com- 
merce, offered both technical and vocational curricula. 
Instruction is offered in Business Administration, Sec- 
retarial Training, Public Administration, and in dc- 



College of 

Business and 

Public 

Administration 



partments of Foreign Trade and Human and Natural 
Resources. Students, with the trainini^ they receive, 
may enter fields of business organization, personnel 
management, state administration, and international 
exchange. 

The College of Business and Public Administration 
continued to aid in the war effort by training students 
of the Army Specialized Training and the Language 
and Area Programs. 

The College now bases all its training in various 
fields of specialization in the study of economics, 
which is the background for all administrative prob- 
lems and structures.

College of Education 



Much of the responsibility of preparing a new 
generation to deal with its problems falls upon the 
public schools. Ready to show the young people of 
the nation a better way of life will be the teachers 
trained by the College of Education. 

The college offers courses for those who wish to 
teach in the secondary, preparatory, and vocational 



schools. Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science de- 
grees are given in Arts and Science, Agriculture, Com- 
mercial, Home Economics, Industrial and Physical 
Education. 

Acting Dean Arnold E. Joyal has led in the effort 
to make a reality of the dream of a twelve-year public 
school plan in Maryland.

Dean S. S. Steinberg 

Under the guidance of Dean S. S. Steinberg, the 
College has trained enlisted men in the Army Spe- 
cialized Training Program; has prepared men to be- 
come officers in the ground and air forces of the 
Army and the Navy; has conducted classes for men 
and women of the State of Maryland to prepare them 
for work to expedite war production; and has trained 
students for work in industrial plants. It has provided 
the professional engineers needed to design and to

construct for victory. 

Although the principal aim of the College is to 
train yoimg men and women for the profession of 
Engineering, it insists that they have sufficient cul- 
tural courses to equip them for their duties as citizens. 

The College of Engineering includes the Depart- 
ments of Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Mechanical 
Engineering.

College of Home Economics 





J/je latest sfv/fs in iJu- iiuifcim) 

The first aim of the College of Home Economics is 
to train young women in home making; the second, to 
prepare women students for professional work. Co- 
operating with the war effort, the College has stressed 
the latter. It is realized that a strong home could 
mean little to a defeated nation, and students have 
been and are continuing to be prepared for work 
that can aid in successfully ending the war. 

The College of Home Economics is organized into 



Dean Marie Mount 

the Departments of Foods and Nutrition; Textiles, 
Clothing and Art; and Home and Institution Man- 
agement. A home management house is maintained 
to give the students practical application experience. 
Students having high scholastic averages may be 
elected to Omicron Nu, national Home Economics 
honor society. The Home Economics Club is affiliated 
with the American Home Economics Association.

With the armed services in desperate need of 
nurses, the University of Maryland has accelerated 
its nurse's training without lowering its high stand- 
ards. The student nurses arc able to acquire a Bach- 



School of 



N 



ursm 



elor of Science degree by attending the University at 
College Park for two years and completing two more 
years of training at the LIniversity branch in Balti- 
more. 

Having unlimited use of fully equipped University 
Hospital, the students may obtain practical instruc- 
tion in psychiatric training through an affiliation of 
the University with the Shephard and Enoch Pratt 
Hospital and may be introduced to public health 
nursing by the Western Health District of the City 
Health Department. All branches of nursing from 
dermatology and surgery through emergency work 
in the accident wards are offered for study.

SUMMER 

GRADUATES 



THE accelerated program caused many of the students to graduate at the end 
of the summer session on September twenty-eighth. Although they had 
to go to classes in the hottest Maryland weather, the students realized that the 
degree that would be theirs at the end of the quarter was worth its price. 
At their graduation ceremony in the women's Held house at eleven o'clock, 
the Reverend Dr. Joseph l\. Peaslee, of the Bethany Evangelical Lutheran 
Church of Baltimore, graduate of the University of Maryland in the class of 1939, 
gave the invocation and the benediction. The address, "Science and a World 
at War," was delivered by Dr. John C. k'rantz, professor of Pharmacology, 
School of Medicine, Baltimore.

_/ \_ the December class of the 1944 graduates received their degrees. Some 
of the students had gone to the University for four complete years, although the 
majority had, through the accelerated courses, completed their work in less than 
four years. The ceremony was held in the Agriculture Auditorium at eleven 
o'clock in the morning on December twenty-second. The Reverend Mr. Henry 
R. Osgood of the First Baptist Church in Hyattsville delivered the invocation 
anil the benediction. Remarks to the graduates were made by various University

MARCH 

GRADUATES 




WiiiLu the students plowed through Hnnl examinations, the graduating 
class of March, 1945, were handed their degrees by President H. C. Byrd. 
The deans of the respective colleges presented the candidates for degrees. 
Unlike the usual March day, March twenty-sixth was a sweltering hot day, 
and the graduates, garbed in the traditional black cap and gown, felt the heat 
even more than the audience did. The Reverend Mr. Nathaniel C. Acton, 
Rector, St. Andrews Church, College Park, delivered the invocation and the bene- 
diction, and George Irving Chandler, soloist, sang "The Cross" and "Cielo e 
Mar." The address, given by Mr. Wendell F. Dunn, principal of the Forest 
Park High School, was of great significance to both audience and graduates.

JUNE 

GRADUATES 




THE largest graduating class of the year was that upon which degrees were 
conferred in June. Although left behind by the students of the University 
who accelerated their education and graduated ahead of their classmates of their 
freshman year, the June graduates enjoyed the glamour connected with a con- 
ferring of degrees in the traditional month of graduations, June. 

Spring came early in 1945, but the June class knew the miseries of the change- 
able weather in College Park. Walking over the campus under a burning sun 
one day and over the same campus in three inches of mud the next came to be 
second nature to the students; however, the would-be graduates worked through 
a season that was both hot and cold and were presented degrees of Bachelors 
of Science and of Art by President Byrd.

HONORARIES 








■S* 



Omicron Delta Kappa 



SIGMA CIRCLE 

Honorary Leadership Fraternity 

Founded at WASHINGTON AND LEE L'NIVERSITY in 1914 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1927 



X 



m^ 



T 



MEMBERSHIP in the men's national leadership 
honorary, Omicron Delta Kappa, represents 
the ultimate in achievement to men students. Quali- 
fications for membership, besides character, intelli- 
gence, and campus leadership, include outstanding 
achievement in five phases of college life: scholarship, 
social and religious affairs, publications, athletics and 
speech, music, ami dramatic arts. 

Determined that, despite present conditions, all 
prospective members of O.D.K. should be tapped on 
the basis of pre-war standards of leadership, Mary- 
land's Sigma Circle has operated under extremely 
critical conditions during the past year. Departure 
of practically all active members left hardly a nucleus 
with which to carry on the functions of the fraternity. 
The depletion of the University's male enrollment 
threatened to seriously curtail or eliminate the source 
of future qualified members. 

Steps were taken as far back as 194.^, fortimately, 
to assure the continued operation of the Circle should 
all stutient members graduate or enter the armed serv- 



ice. Responsibility' for carrying on the fimctions 
of the honorary were placed in the hands of four 
active members, who were given the authority to elect 
and initiate qualified student leaders. 

For a short priod in the summer of 1 944 there were 
no student members on campus, but the faculty ac- 
tives, James Reid, Russell Allen, Dr. Ronald Barn- 
ford, and Dr. Charles White, kept the society alive 
and in September tapped Bill Scull and Bob Spence. 

Scull served as president for two quarters following 
his initiation and was succeeded by Spence. At no 
time during this period did student membership ex- 
ceed three men. 

Omicron Delta Kappa is looking ahead to the fu- 
ture, the time, not far distant, when total membership 
will somewhat resemble that of a few years ago.

Mortar Board 



Senior Women's Honorary Society 

Founded at SWARTHMORE COLLEGE in 1918 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1934 




MORTAR Board, senior women's honor society, 
taps second and third quarter junior women 
who have an all-time scholastic average of 2.7 or above 
and who have done outstanding work in extra- 
curricular activities. Tapping in the spring occurs 
at the May Day celebration and in the winter at the 
Christmas pageant. Members wearing the traditional 
cap and gown walk about the audience and ask the 
new tappees one by one to join the file. 

At the beginning of the fall quarter a nine-page 
letter composed of information needed by freshman 
women was drawn up and sent to all incoming fresh- 
man girls. 

Welcoming parties at the start of each quarter, 



"Smarty Parties" for students who have maintained 
a 3.7 average during their first year of college and 
are therefore eligible to be tapped, and after-dinner 
dances on Wednesday evenings were sponsored by 
Mortar Board. 

This year, for the first time, Mortar Board mem- 
bers distinguished themselves by wearing blazers of 
the school colors with a Mortar Board Seal, designed 
by the members, on the pocket.

Phi Kappa Phi 



Honorary Scholarship Fraternity 

Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF MAINE in 1897 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1920 




Hyman, Mead, Sctgel, Spiclman, Toda. 



PHI Kappa Phi, an honorary fraternity composed 
of representatives from all the colleges within the 
University, celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary at 
the University this June. Furthering the fulfillment 
of its motto, "the love of learning rules the world," 
the organization encourages scholarship and character 
by offering membership to seniors who rank in the 
upper ten per cent of their respective colleges. 

Because of the accelerated program, it has been 
necessary to tap eligible seniors every quarter. More 
than one junior woman looks forward to the day 
when she might become a member of Phi Kappa Phi, 
one of the most honored societies at the University, 
for members benefit not only for the prestige the 
honorary bestows but also from associations with 
alumni who have continued contacts with the cam- 
pus and have contributed encouragement and interest 
t(i the achievements of the active college group. 

The Phi Kappa Phi I ionor Society was founded at 
the University of iVlaine in 1897 by men who saw 
the need nt an honor society formutl on bniatler lines 
than any then in existence. It was broadened into a 
national honor association by the action of a com- 
mittee composed of A. W. Harris, then president of 
the University of Maine; C. W. Dabney, then presi- 
dent of the University of Tennessee; and, George Q. 



Atherton, then president of Pennsylvania State Col- 
lege. The chapters in these institutions were the orig- 
inal chapters and are now represented by the three 
stars of the seal. There are, however, forty-eight 
chapters at present. 

Phi Kappa Phi has given recognition to more than 
seven hundred Maryland students since its founding 
at the University in l')20. The honorary, in addition 
to its activities in honoring scholastic achievement 
through membership, has awarded several fellowships. 

Miss Edna B. McNaughton served the organization 
as president and Mrs. Margaret T. Goldsmith as vice 
president, while Miss Lenna L. Gross acted as secre- 
tary-treasurer and Mr. Joshua Liese as journal cor- 
respomlent.

Alpha Lambda Delta 



MARYLAND CHAPTER 

Women's Freshman Honor Society 

Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS In 1924 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1938 

To reward' high scholastic achievement and to 
promote leadership among the freshman and 
sophomore women of the University, Alpha Lambda 
Delta, freshman women's national honor fraternity, 
each year taps those girls who made a 3.5 scholastic 
average during their first terms or who have a 3.5 
for their entire freshman year. 

At the beginning of the school year, the fraternity 
gave a tea to welcome the incoming freshman women, 
providing them with an opportunity to meet the other 
members of their class, and serving as a means of 
acquainting them with the organization and the fac- 
ulty. In order to help the underclass students select 



their major, Alpha Lambda Delta sponsored a series 
of informal talks and discussions under the leadership 
of professors from the various departments of the Uni- 
versity, as the psychology, sociology, and modern lan- 
guages. The fraternity joined the Senior women's 
honorary, Mortar Board, in bringing to the campus 
representatives from industry, the professions, and the 
service for conferences with the university women to 
guide them in their choice of a career after graduation. 

Regular business meetings were held once a month, 
and the faculty advisor. Miss Marian Johnson, often 
brought the girls together for informal gatherings in 
order to visit places of interest in Washington, to dis- 
cuss current books, and to see educational movies. 

Membership in Alpha Lambda Delta is the highest 
honor that may be achieved by freshman women. 

2tc}nbers: Helen Baker, Jean Bowen, June Chance, Jean Eichei-

Phi Eta Sigma 

National Men's Freshman Honor Society 

Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS in 1923 

Chartered at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1940 



PHI HiA Sigma, national organization designed to 
honor high scholastic attainment of men students 
in their freshman year, requires for entrance an aver- 
age of 3.5 in the first quarter, first two quarters, or 
all three quarters of the freshman year. 

Although the war has curtailed the activities of the 
society, its members have tried to maintain a function- 
ing organization, endeavoring to keep in cimtact with 
members now in the armed forces. With Ixl \.o\\\ 
serving as president and Max Schreiner as secretary- 
treasurer, the honorary has struggled through a year 
with an extremely small membership. Because of the 
decreased membership, much of the burden of keeping 
the organization active has fallen upon Mr. Carl I lintz, 
faculty advisor. 

Ed Lord left the Liniversity in jnnuniA', but while 
he was here he served as president of the Indepeiulent 
Students Union and as president of the Baptist Stu- 

50 



dent Union. Still on campus and still active were Ed 
Zeigler and Bernard Lubarsky, president and secre- 
tary, respectively, of Tau Beta Pi. Zeigler also held 
an office in the American Society of Civil Engineers. 
Ballard, although now serving in the army, was a 
member of Omicron Delta Knppn while liere, and 
Arnold Seigel was a F'hi Kappa Phi, senior honorar\- 
member. I'hi Eta Sigma Kahn was a member of 
A.l.Ch.E., proving that students who are initiated into 
the freshman honorary are taking the primary step 
toward further achievements. Phi Eta Sigma is espe- 
ciallv proud of member Morton Silverstein, a gradu- 
ate student who was outstanding on campus for his 
,v9 average and wlio has transferred to M.I.T. and 
became an honor student there. 

Throughout the year smokers were held to intro- 
tluce the new members to the faculty.

Alpha Chi Sigma 



ALPHA RHO CHAPTER 

Professional Chemical Fraternity 

Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN in 1902 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1928 



A LPHA Chi Sigma is a professional chemical fra- 
^/\, ternity which was established at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland in 1927, twenty-five years after it 
had been founded at the University of Wisconsin in 
1907. The fraternity had grown before the war to 
number more than fifty active chapters at colleges and 
universities throughout the country and to include 
seventeen professional chapters and ten professional 
groups. Students with a 2.5 or better scholastic aver- 
age, having completed at least one and a half years as 
a Chemistry or Chemical Engineering major, are 
eligible for membership. 

The local chapter is actually a social fraternity 
which draws its members from men who plan to enter 
chemistry as a profession, banding together men dur- 



ing their college life who desire to continue their fra- 
ternity affiliations beyond their school careers. 

Officers of Alpha Rho chapter for the year were: 
John A. Carman, president; W. Mayo Smith, vice- 
president; Paden F. Dismore, recording secretary; 
William E. Lusby, corresponding secretary; and John 
Sterling, treasurer.

Sigma Alpha Omicron 



Honorary Bacteriology Society 

Founded at WASHINGTON STATE COLLEGE in 1925 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1932 



Sic.MA Alpha Omicrox revised its constitution to 
change the organization from an honorary to a 
professional fraternity, hi 1934 the bacteriology club 
joined Sigma Alpha Omicron at Washington State 
College and became established as an honorary society 
on this campus. In pre-war years, the society was able 
to accomplish its aims organized in that fashion, 
but the wartime enrollment has decreased the mem- 
bership to such a great extent that progress became 
almost impossible. 

Keeping SAO members busy was a sanitation siu- 
vey of the campus. Due to the labor shortages and 
the increasing difficulty in obtaining new equipment, 
the administration was not able to keep sanitation in- 



spections up to the level to which the Llni\'ersity was 
accustomed. The dining hall, however, from the 
standpoint ol cleanliness, was in excellent condition. 
All was not work for SAO members. In the fall the 
group ga\'e a reception for bacteriology majors and 
facultN'. later, initiations and a banquet in the dining 
hall were held. Dr. Creich and Dr. Schneiter were 
guest speakers at SAO meetings.

Pi Delta Epsilon 

MARYLAND CHAPTER 

Honorary Journalistic Fraternity 

Founded at SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY in 1909 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1930 




PI Delta Epsilon, national journalistic honorary, 
recognizes ability and effort in the field of col- 
legiate publications. The setting and maintaining of 
high journalistic standards for campus publications 
and the encouragement of student work in this field 
are the functions of Pi Delt. 

To be eligible for initiation into the honorary a 
student must have outstanding work on one of the 
University publications to his credit. Since gradua- 
tions are so frequent with the quarter system, the 
former requirement of two years' work has been re- 
duced to one year; however, despite the lesser num- 
ber of students, Pi Delta Epsilon has continued to 
maintain its high standards. 

The initiation in the spring was held in conjunction 



with the Pi Delta Epsilon chapter at George Wash- 
ington University. The new tappees included Jean 
Rowley, Lovedy Pedlow, Emogene Simmons, Joyce 
Reside, and Wilson Schmidt. 

Although wartime restrictions have cut down on the 
customary social functions of the group, the tradi- 
tional picnics were held. 

Officers for the year were: Acting President, Bob 
Spence; Secretary, Elinor McDonnell; Treasurer, 
Betty Ring. 

T^icinbers: Dorotiiy Douglas, Geraldine Gladville, Margaret 
Hemple, Margaret Hughes, Eleanor Jenkins, Barbara Kephart,

Omicron Nu 



ALPHA ZETA CHAPTER 

Honorary Home Economics Fraternity 

Founded at MICHIGAN STATE COLLEGE in 1912 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1937 



I 



NiTiATiON into Omicron Nu, Home Economics 
National Honor Society, is the highest honor a 
girl in the College of Home Economics can receive. 
With the recognition and promotion of scholarship, 
leadership, and research in the field of home economics 
as its goal, the society carefully selected its members. 
Students with a scholastic average ranking in the 
upper one fifth of the group of students having jimior 
rating in the spring and in the upper one fourth of the 
students having senior rating in the fall following ini- 
tiation are eligible for tapping. The chapter selects not 
over fifteen per cent of the girls having senior rating 
and not over five per cent having junior rating and 
offers them membership in the organization. 

Knitting for the RclI Cross and sponsoring the col- 



lection of cards and records for Rehabilitation Centers 
occupied much of the time of Omicron Nu members, 
but they found time to become acquainted with, to 
entertain, and to help the Brazilian coeds in home ec 
so that they might understand Maryland and its tra- 
ditions. 

Following a tradition of long standing, each year 
Omicron Nu presents an awnid to the freshman girl 
in the College of Home Economics who has the high- 
est scholastic average. Last \'ear the award went to 
Hilda joska. 

Omicron Nu has been on the Maryland campus 
since 1937, when it was installetl as Alpha Zeta chap- 
ter of the national society.

THE State of Maryland is famous for its beautiful 
women and its university has its share of them. 
Selecting the most attractive girls on campus was not 
an easy task, but with the help of John Powers, 
^lademoiselle magazine, and students, the beauties 
were chosen. 

At the Black and Gold Ball, Phyllis Thompson was 
crowned as "Miss Touchdown." "Pat" had been 
chosen as the favorite of the football team because of 
her popularity and good looks. Through the sponsor- 
ship of the Diamondback a "Queen of the 1944 
Pledge Classes" was chosen. Each sorority was asked 
to select its most attractive pledge, and representa- 
tives from the various fraternities named Sally Dunn- 
ington as the most outstanding. The Jerrapiu, want- 
ing a queen of its own, sponsored a beauty contest. 




and JMademoiselle magazine's beauty experts selected 
Betty Heyser from the candidates presented. 

In 1944, John Powers, head of one of the country's 
best known model agencies, was asked to select, from 
photographs sent to him, the "Queen of the Military 
Ball." Mr. Powers selected Dorothy McLean, who 
was crowned at the ball. 

The new Independent Students Union, at their 
I.S.U. Doll Dance, selected and crowned Barbara 
McCutcheon as the first "I.S.U. Doll."

Till: Stialent Board, the student governing coun- 
cil of the University, endeavored this year to 
instill the spirit and traditions of Maryland into the 
student body. Pep rallies, singing and cheering assem- 
blies were conducted by the cheerleading squad, and 
the traditional Freshmen Assemblies were held to 
acquaint the incoming students with campus leaders. 
Dr. Byrd addressed the groups and chairman Dotty 
Douglas introduced student leaders. A Student Ac- 
tivities Registration Bureau was set up to aid campus 
organizations in the enrolling of new members. 

October 1,^ marked the third annual Autumn Car- 
nival, highlighted this year by the selection of "Miss 
Touchdown" by the football team. "Miss Touch- 
clown" was crowned at the Black and Gold i^nll bv 
Les Daly, captain of the team, nntl at the ^ame was 
presented with a football autographed by the team. 

In early December, rather than having individual 
campaigns, the Student Board established an Elections 
Committee that conducted the campaigning and pub- 
licity of the Student Board elections. The newly 
elected officers were installed at the Student Assem- 



bly on December 1 1 and were entertained at a dinner 
given by Dr. Byrd for student leaders. 

Officers for the year were Chairmen Dotty Douglas 
and Randy Scholl; First Vice Chairmen Les Smith 
and Bob Spence; Second Vice Chairmen Elinor 
McDonnell and Jerry Cleaver, and Women's Member 
at Large Shirley Wilson and Belle Calmes.

Student Victory Council 



THE Student Victory Council was established by 
the Student Board in 1942 to further student 
participation in the war effort. Although at first it 
was a committee of only a few interested participants, 
it has grown to include representatives of each dormi- 
tory, sorority, and fraternity, and students working on 
the various projects sponsored by the Council. Its 
activities involve a variety of helpful war projects, in- 
cluding the sponsoring of the blood and war bond 
drives on campus, the collecting of scrap, and collect- 
ing cigarettes for Smokes for Yanks drives. 

In the spring of 1944, a Red Cross College Unit 
was chartered under the auspices of the Victory Coun- 
cil, and the Council this year has expanded its activi- 
ties to include Red Cross canteen work, staff assistant 
work, and visits to rehabilitation centers. 

During the fall of 1944, a rally for the sale of war 
bonds was held in the form of an auction wherein 
students bid for the privilege of having members of 
the faculty do almost any original, often impleasant

Women's League 



INVESTED with authority over the women students 
of the University, Women's League formulated 
and enforced the rules and regulations pertaining to 
the conduct of coeds on campus. Any woman student 
who breaks a University rule must be presented to 
the League for punishment. 

Due to the increase in women students, the Wom- 
en's League had to revise its rules and present a newer 
edition of rule books. The constitution of the organ- 
ization was rewritten to meet the needs of the Uni- 
versity when it converts to the semester system. A 
pamphlet containing "do's and don'ts" for college 
women was written by members of the League and 
will be distributed to freshman women. 

Under the direction of Jean Warfield, Women's 
League members worked in cooperation with other 
groups to organize a Christmas program. A large 
Christmas tree was decorated by the League, and the 
guest speaker, a war veteran who officially opened 
the program by lighting the tree, was sponsored by 
the association. 



The Women's League sponsored many and sup- 
ported all of the various drives of the University, 
whether pertaining to the war or directly to the stu- 
dents on campus. Carolyn Moody was chosen by 
members of the organization as chairman of the an- 
nual May Day celebration, special project of Women's 
League.

For nearly a year students in College Park tramped 
through mud and bore the blowing of dust in their 
faces as they watched two buildings being constructed. 
Suddenly, as though overnight, the brain children of 
Dr. Byrd and the state were fully grown. Even more 
quickly the lawns, beautifully terraced, were covered 
with green grass and the beauty of the campus was 



increased by two lovely dormitories in the Georgian 
style of architecture typical of Maryland and the 
South. Although constructed for men students, the 
dormitories were occupied by the girls. The new 
dormitories are a real example of the continuous ex- 
panding of the University.

FOR the second time in its histt)i y, the Dtaiiioihi 
IhiLk was iuuIlt the direction of n coed, Betty 
Rin^, who served as editor-in-chief for the winter and 
spring quarters. Maryland women broke the ac- 
cepted theory that only men could edit the school 
newspaper in the summer of 1943 when Jackie Brophy 
was appointed the first woman editor-in-chief. Editors 
of the l)iamo)uihat:k are chosen for ability and interest 
by the outgoing editor-in-chief. The other appointive 
officers are consequently approved by the Publications 
Board. 

During the summer C|uarter, the newspaper operated 
on a two-page basis, returnini; to the regular four- 
page weekly in the fall. "Off the Press," book reviews 
written by members of the library staff, made its first 
appearance. "Around the I lill," the society column of 
the newspaper, continuetl to be one of the most popu- 
lar features, with Lila Antlrews succeeding Kitty Briggs 
as its author. Boots Holljes, weary of feminine gossip, 
originated "From the Hermitage," a social news cov- 
erage strictly for men.

During freshman week the 7il Book, the Freshman

weeks of gathering campus information, typing copy, 
and traipsing to the printer. 

The 21 Book attempts to show the University of

Maryland's history and traditions, the organizations 
on campus, student publications, sororities and frater- 
nities, the Student Board constitution, Women's 
League, Maryland songs and cheers, who's who on 
campus, and the all-importnnt rat rules.

Reviving an old tradition. Clef and Key presented its sixth annual Varsity Show, One 
Jouch of Cjeiuns, a musical comedy that kept students laughing for three nights in the 
school theater. Clef and Key is comprised of talented students who desire an outlet for 
their singing, dancing, or varied musical abilities. President Wanda Pelczar, guided the

Women's Chorus 



ON December 17, 1944, the Women's Chorus, 
consisting of ninety talented coeds, traveled 
at their own expense to the Newton Haker Hospital 
at Martinsburg, West Virt^inia. There they went from 
ward to ward singing to the convalescing veterans. 
With the other members of the chorus furnishing the 
musical background, Meredith Schmidt, Mary Harry 
Davis, and Annie Lee Mallonee sang solos. The event 
was such a success that President Wanda Pelczar re- 
ceived a letter from the hospital asking her and her 
fellow choriisters to return. 

After having entertained servicemen at Port Meade, 
the Laurel U.S.O., the Naval Academy, and the 
Stage Door Canteen in Washington last year, the 
chorus revisited the men of the armetl forces at these 
places, offering new choral antl solo arrangements. In 
addition, a show was presented to the men ami women 
at Bethesda Naval Hospital. 



Chorus members participated in the Christmas 
Pageant sponsored by the Footlight Club, and, as in 
previous years, performetl at the annual May Day 
celebration.

After a long period of silence, the Men's Glee Club has again become active. 
Under the able leadership of Harlan "Doc" Randall, professor of music, and 
with many of the returned veterans in its ranks, the club has increased in size 
and popularity. After a full year's activities, the Men's Glee Club, this year led 
by Kent Kise, promises to become once more one of the outstanding campus 
groups. 

Under the able direction of Harlan Randall, who has worked for ten years to build a 
University orchestra, the University of Maryland Student Orchestra took part in many 
University functions throughout the year. At each quarter graduation, the Orchestra 
played a major role and May Day would have been incomplete without its classical and 
semi-classical music. Working in conjunction with other musical organizations, the Or- 
chestra presented the Spring Musical Festival. The members also played at various 
functions on campus, including teas and dramatic productions.

Footlight Club 

/ I ^iiii Llnix'ersity Fuotlight Club, as college dramat- 
i ic organizations all over the country, was greatly 
affected by the war. The manpower shortage took its 
toll of leading men nnel crew hands, and materials 
for the building of sets were almost impossible to ac- 
quire. Yet, because of its reorganization, the Footlight 
Club progressed. 

in the spring of 1944, for the first time in its his- 



licbhic 3/cXtf rcvcah hcrsti/ m llu' s()Y I'li "Cry Jiaroc. 



tory, the club was put under the guidance of the 
Speech Department ot the University, with Dr. R. 
Ehrensberger serving as advisor. 

Cry "Hiii'oc, a story of the heroic nurses on Bataan, 
was presented in the spring of 1944. The play was the 
answer to the manpower question, for its cast was 
composed of women only. With the aid of extremely 
realistic sound effects, and dressed in men'-; fatigue 
suits borrowed from the campus A.S.T. unit, the girls 
presentei.1 what many students considered the best 
play ever given on campus. 

With the fall quarter came Mr. William Dean, 
brought to the Uni\ersity especially to coach Foot- 
light Club plays. The first part of the quarter was de- 
voted to the cleaning of the workshop and to taking 
inventory of the materials on hand. Then work was 
begun on the Christmas play. The Footlight Club, 
backed by the Student Board, presented a Christmas 
pageant, hoping to start a tradition at Maryland. The 
play, It'hy the Chimes Rdiuj, was supplemented by 
the lighting of a large Christmas tree, the singing of a 
select group of the Women's Chorus, and the present- 

Jhe siMW crcrr worked fhird.

few building materials. y\lurdei' iii a yVidiiiery, a tense 
mystery story, was chosen as the winter production. 
Bobbie McKee, assisted by Toni Call, led the group 
through the year.

functions as the integration point between Catholic 
students on the campus. The students, led by Louise 
Burke, meet on a religious, intellectual, and social basis. 
Father Terence Kuehn, O.F.M., of the Franciscan 
Monastery, served as student chaplain again this year.

cal Letter Casti Coiuuihli, relating to Christian mar- 
riage. During the year a number of guest speakers

bring them in contact with well-known sociologists, and to make the discussion of issues 
pertinent to sociologists possible. Panel discussions, trips to Washington, and talks by 
various sociologists have kept the club active.

THE Independent Students Union was organized 
in the spring of 1944 under the leadership of 
Phyllis Whitcomb, who became first president of the 
organization. 

With the fall term came elections that made Ed 
Lord gavel swinger and Connie Williams his assistant. 
In November, under the leadership of Dody Upson,

usual social functions, was given. The dance took the 
form of an old fashioned square dance, and Barbara 
McCutcheon was crowned I.S.U. doll by President 
Ed Lord. To wind up the fall social activities, the 
I.S.U. members sang Christmas carols through Col- 
lege Park and gathered afterwards for a party at the 
Rossborough Inn.

with new steps to the basement and cleaned out the 
trophy case in the library, and a March Frolic, a car- 



nival featuring entertainment of all kinds, was pre- 
sented.

FRATERNITIES 

• AND SORORITIES 













Interfraternity Council 



THE Interfraternity Council, composed of two 
representntives from each fraternity, is the cen- 
tral representative organization of all active fraterni- 
ties of the University. Desiring to bind the fraterni- 
ties together to promote good feeling, the members 
met weekly to discuss the activities, rules, regulations, 
and details pertaining to the fraternities. Problems 
were considered and their apparent solutions dis- 
cussed, passed on, and put into effect. 

With the full participation of all the clubs, attention 
was called to the importance of athletics in fraternity 
life by an interfraternity track meet sponsored by the 
organization, jack Thomas not only performed in a 
number of the events but also acted as chairman of 
the meet committee, arranged all the particulars and 
assured the success of the affair. Intramural sports, 
regulated by the Interfraternity Council, were particu- 
larly important to the fraternities as a means of arous- 
ing honest competition and an interest in sports. 

Supplementing its activities as the central agency for 
interfraternity athletics, the Council arranged various 
social activities for all the fraternities. Under the 
supervision of Hob Spence, president for the summer 
and tall ot 1')14, a picnic dance at Creenbelt Lake 
was prepared. In spite of the heat, it tiuMied out to be 
one of the most successful interfraternity dances. 
With Page Chesser assuming the presidency for the 
winter of 1944 and 1945, the Council initiated admis- 
sion dances in the gym armory in order to raise funds. 
At the first admission dance Mel Mitchell's Debonairs 
furnished the live and Page Chesser, Sigma Chi, was 
introduced as the new president of the Council;

dent; Kent Kise, Alpha Lambda Tau, as secretary; 
and Jack MacVeigh, Alpha Tau Omega, as treasurer. 
With the money raised by these dances the Council 
was able to sponsor a spring formal at Beaver Dam. 

To cheer the campus during its mid-winter slump, 
the Council sponsored a novel straw dance at the Phi 
Kappa Sigma House. High-lighting the evening was 
a spontaneous interfraternity sing. The Sigma Chi's 
won first prize for their singing, and Kappa Alpha, 
represented by soloist Charlie Williams, took second 
place. 

Throughout the year, with the cooperation of the 
sororities on campus, the Interfraternity Council spon- 
sored Friday night Rotary Dances. Since the fraterni- 
ties were without houses, the sororities furnished them 
with a place to hold their dances.

Phi Delta Thet 



a 




MARYLAND ALPHA CHAPTER 

Founded at MIAMI UNIVERSITY in 1848 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1930 



STARTiNc, out the year with their ever reliable Jack 
Frost at the helm, Maryland Alpha of Phi Delta 
Theta bounced back into the campus spotlight by 
adding four members and by pledging Harold Dono- 
frio and Dawson Jarboe. 

Phi Delt was represented on the varsity football 
team by Richard Terry and Chuck Ryan, while Dick 
Terry was one of the varsity boxers. Pledge Harold 
Donofrio worked with the Clef and Key, and Prexy 
Frost was one of the Footlight Club's indispensable 
men. Canterbury Club saw Stanley Roth, Robert 
Bates, and I-mory Harman as members. 

Phi Delt, always active in sports, participated in the 
FVaternity Basketball League and garnered two vic- 
tories. Alex Bobenko, now attending medical school 
in Baltimore, returned to go undefeated in his two 
appearances on the varsity boxing team. Baltimorean 
Dick Terry pounded his way into the heavyweight 
boxing limelight, while brother Chuck Ryan, always 
faithful, was the mainstay of the cage team and was 
responsiiile f(H the two Phi Delt wins. 

For the time being the Phi Delta Thetas called the 
Tippett Towers their home. Winter elections showed 



Dick Bozman winning out as president, Chuck Rs'an 
as vice president. Bill Gruber as treasurer, and Emory 
Harman as secretary. The new president, whose 
heart beat in Baltimore, spent W.44% of his time 
there, while "Ole Zoot Suit" Bill Gruber, tired of col- 
lecting bills, burnetl the roads to Baltimoie, where the 
very sight of him made the hearts of a telephone

operator and a Catonsville high school lassie go pitter- 
pat. Phi Delts claim that Roma and Roth are synony- 
mous, one being lost without the other. Although the 
"Blue Bullet" was in hock, Ed Lentz continued to beat 
a path to the AOPi house to see his Ginny. Jack 
Frost acquired the nickname "Geranium," and, if the 
brothers should lose him to the Merchant Marine, 
memories of Jack will always be of that sweet flower 
also. Robert "Buck" Bates, with his two guns at his 
side, shot his way into a redhead's heart. 

Besides women, the Phi Delt's were gifted with 
Emory Harman, special present of the U. S. Army. 
He came back in time to see Phi Delta Theta go up 
on campus, and as he says, "Watch them go." 

'Members: Richard Bozman, Jack Frost, William Gruber, Ed-

Founded at UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA in 1850

in 1899 



Is the spring of 1944 Phi Kappa Sigma obtained 
representation on the interfraternity Council. 
At that time there were only four active members. 
During the year Henry Howden swung the gavel and 
Charles DePhillips assistetl as vice president. Under 
their leadership the Phi Kaps entered the annual rush- 
ing competition and pletlged twelve men. By March 
the fraternit)- hoastetl fifteen actives and seven pledges 
am! began to search for a place to house them. 



As Peter Bozick succeeded Henry Howden as presi- 
dent when the new year rolled in, social functions 
were picked up with renewed vigor. The Phi Kap's 
held a Straw Dance that was so successful that the 
Interfraternity Council adopted the idea, and another 
dance similar to it was held in the Phi Kappa rooms. 
Later in the year the traditional Phi Kappa Sigma 
Skull Dance was presentee!, at which time "Rosco" 
was trotted out. The event turned out to be quite 
the pinning aflfair, for brothers Joe Papania and 
William Kirby lost their pins.

Very successful was a spring formal held in honor 
of the Phi Kappa Sigma sister sorority, Sigma Kappa. 
The fraternity held a reception for alumnus Governor 
Herbert O'Conor. 

Three Phi Kap's attracted attention in the Varsity 
Show, One JoucIj of Cjeimis. Peter Bozick with his 
"moo," Joe Papania, the slick operator, and Vic Mul- 
lin, the man with the chicken, all became near cele- 
brities. Henry Howden served as secretary, vice 
president, and president of the Interfraternity Council, 
while holding down a position on the Diamondback 
staff was Vic Mullin. Pete Bozick and Jim Alderton 
represented Phi Kappa Sigma on the Interfraternity 
Council. 

Not to be left out on the sports angle. Phi Kap 
sent brother Charlie DePhillips out to lead them in 
intramural football. Charlie not only led them but 
also starred on the team. Even the pledges fought 
for the honor of their fraternity, for Ken Malone 
boxed in the one hundred seventy-five-pound bracket. 

The Phi Kap's were shocked by the news of the 
death of Bill Gordon, Phi Kappa Sigma president in

SIGMA Chi sweltered through n torrid summer nnd 
congealed during the arctic winter in a little p<; 
shack on the wrong side of the tracks, where Ward 
Boss Page Chesser kept the fraternal flame alive; and 
Boh Steen, the miser, aided by juggling the hook^, 
breaking a tew heads collecting bills. 

When winter closed down in earnest, the Sigs lit the 
smoking lamp at Albrecht's, where Radical Mears or- 
ganized the leftiest of all free men's clubs, a band to 
halt the loss of fraternity jewelry. Bill Harrison and 
Fred SafTord formed the backbone of the outfit, and 
even "Black Market" Bastian lent his name. .Mever-

theless, the respectable pinned men offered stifF oppo- 
sition, with Roger Bergstrom copping the speed record, 
in hours, for the course. Socialites Ralph Sipes and 
Leigh Vanneman were reformed and, of all things, 
started to study. Marie Foulkes, Sigma Chi sweet- 
heart of 1944, got choosy and went individual; she 
now wears Page Chesser's pin. 

The year was a robust one for all, particularly the 
pledges. "Sadist Sam" Fortunato, feeling that the 
usual "riding" of the new pledges by the old mem- 
bers was not enough, was a bit hard on the pledglings; 
however, they bore it well and were initiated. 

The chapter romped through seven straight wins 
at intramural basketball to win the championship, with 
John Younger, now United States Army Air Force, 
Jim Skeen, and Ralph Simmons hazing the ball around 
the court. Mallonee might have been seen passing 
out blackjacks and knuckle dusters before the game. 
Les Smith read a book on commando tactics and used 
what he had learned on the gridiron. For playing 
fair and square football and living through it, and for 
boosting what was left of the old school spirit, he was 
awarded a letter. Brother Fred Safford fought his 
way to the intramural boxing championship. 

Somewhere someone said that all play and no v.'ork 
makes Jack a dull boy, but the Sigma Chi's had a litde 
trouble believing it. Nevertheless, some of the boys 
beat their way up the hill to meetings. Bob Scott 
and Les Smith were elected vice chairmen of the Stu- 



dent Board, and Page Chesser straightened out fra- 
ternity problems as president of the Interfraternity 
Council. Bob Steen, Footlight Club member from 
way back, spent Wednesday evenings at the Footlight 
meetings when he could tear himself away from Caro- 
lyn, and Ralph Sipes reported for the Diamondback. 
"Mai" Mallonee drew cartoons for the Diamondback 
and for the Jenapiti. 

Sigma Chi, struck as all fraternities were by the 
manpower shortage, showed that the standards of 
fraternalism for which they stand cannot be lost, even 
in time of war.

AFTER taking part in the aniuial pilgrimage to 
. Ocean City, the SAE's, proudly displaying 
healthy tans, opened the summer quarter. Prexy Otts 
McDearmon led the hoys toward success in the social, 
athletic, and scholastic aspects of campus life. 

Going into its second year on the Maryland campus, 
SAE is now firmly established, for the fraternity name, 
so well known nationally, quickly gained recognition 
on campus. The hoys opened the fall quarter with 
a first anniversary banquet, f-ollowing closely were 
an orchestra dance with an autiminal theme and a 
Sadie Hawkins Dance. 

The SAE touch football team remained unscored 
upon until the championship game. The fast and 
light team was noted for its teamwork. Pledge Bob 
Harvey was picked by Coach Stan Baker as the out-

standing touch football player in the league for his 
excellent passing. 

Appointed Cadet Colonel and chairman of the 
dance committee of the Student Board was Pat Coyle, 
while Will Schmidt took over the sports page of the 
})iiuno)hihiH.'k, ably assisted by brothers Herb Hodge, 
Byrd Lucas, Dick Grubb, and Bill Gould. Pledge Bill 
Ehrmantraut headed the daydodgcrs, and Pledge Walt 
Bauman starred on the Varsity football eleven. 

The Sig Alph's elected as president for the fall 
quarter Kenny Maskell, who gave his all toward build- 
ing the fraternity; however, at the end of the quarter 
Kenny graduated, and Line Black was elected to the 
helm for the winter quarter. Again the Sig Alph's 
produced an intramural basketball team that stayed 
in the win column elespite the lack of experienced 
reserves. 

The highlight of the chapter's social life was its 
Winter Eormal, held in the loimge of the armory and 
temperetl by the sweet music of Jack Morton's orches- 
tra. On March ninth, hundreds of SAE's in the Wash- 
ington area gathered at the Statler Hotel to toast 
lounder's Day. 

With another highly successful year under its belt, 
the N'oung fraternity is pioud of its achievements and 
of its ability to grow ami pidsper under tr\ing war- 
time conditions.

WiTir Boots Holljes and Jimmy Shields serving 
as presidents in the fall and winter quarters 
respectively, Theta Chi rose to a high position among 
fraternities in the past year. Having more than thirty 
members and being one of the few fraternities on cam- 
pus able to retain its house, the fraternity won the 
intramural championship in baseball and football. 
Brother Tommy "Touchdown" Graham helped by re- 
ceiving the Touchdown Club's Intranuiral Trophy. 

Helping to raise the Theta Chi status on campus 
was the acquiring of offices on campus by the mem- 
bers. Randy Scholl served as president of the Stu- 
dent Board, Bill Eckhardt presided as chairman of the 
Dance Committee of the Student Board, and Dick 
Spencer became the treasurer of the Intcrfraternity 
Council. Bill Kahler, Jim "Jellybean" Ryan, and Gil 
Bresnick, Men's Chorus and Clef and Key members, 
took part in the Varsity Show, One Touch oj (icnius. 
while "Bing" Kahler entertained his hnithers ticim be- 
hind the footlights in T/iui/cr ni ii A'mmciv Making 
sure that music and acting wouldn't be the death nl 
the fraternity. Boots 1 lolljes originated Irom the I ler

hack. 



Mrs. "Ma" Smith, with Theta Chi as its house- 
mother for over ten years, witnessed with the patience 
that only a fraternity housemother can hn\e the usual 
Friday night confusion in preparing for big weekend 
dates. Even she could not control 'Guerilla Men" 
Scholl and Holljes on their shower sprees. Jimmy 
Shields continued his expeditions to Bowie in search 
of eggs, antl "Uncle Harwood" Jackson gave out 
sound advice that no one, including Jackson himself, 
ever followed. Ed Wickers, commonly referred to as 
"Bottleneck" of Dick Tracy fame, waited tables at 
Theta Chi and risked his famous neck doing it.

Throwing undesired food at Ed was one of the favor-

ACTIVE in publications, in sports, in goveinniL'nt, 
_ nnd in fraternity life in general, were the 
Alpha Tau Omega's. Headed first by Jack Mac- 
Veigh and later by Jerry Cleaver, the A.T.O.'s con- 
tinued their activities, although hard hit by the 
worldly chaos. 

in spite of the fact that the A.T.O.'s did not occupy 
their house during 1945 because of war conditions, 
they were still able to maintain their social status with 
week-end parties, interfraternity sports, and a galaxy 
of other campus activities. The brothers hatl little

trouble in getting dates for their occasional, but always 
successful, dances. 

As usual, rushing was pursued by the Tau's and a 
fine pledge class was instituted and initiated during 
the 1944-1945 season. An old fashioned barbecue 
held at Joe Grisby's home, Grisby Station, Maryland, 
and a party held at the home of Dr. Charles White, 
highlighted the rush season. Entertained admirably 
by Dr. White, the Tau's and their rushees were par- 
ticularly impressed by the demonstrations of an infra- 
red ray and its curious effect on teeth, fingernails, and 
especially printed maps. 

Jerry Cleaver, president of the fraternity, competed 
in the student body elections and won the post of 
second vice chairman of the Student Board with the 
help of A.T.O. B.T.O. MacVeigh and his yeoman 
service as special campaign manager. Brother Bill 
Scull steered Omicron Delta Kappa, men's honorary, 
through a successful year. Rayner Hesse was a 
member of the news staff of the Diawondback, and 
with the success of his timely features became well 
known among the school newspaper readers; in fact, 
he became so well known that he successfully alien- 
ated nearly all the campus belles with his Diamond- 
hack feature on the relative merits of women and 
dogs. 

Jerry Cleaver, Rayner Hesse, and Jack MacVeigh 
represented Alpha Tau Omega on the Interfraternity 
Council; Jack was selected treasurer of the Council. 

During the year brother Phil Bettendorf and James 



Stapp entered the armed services. Bettendorf is now 
serving in the Navy, and Stapp, his ex-cohort in cam- 
pus fun, is doing his part in the Army. 

Dr. Charles E. White, professor of chemistry, mem- 
ber of the Publications Board and the Student Life 
Committee, ably served as advisor to the fraternity. 

The Tau's are making plans for the post-war era, 
when once more they will occupy their house on Col-

among the leading campus organizations.

WEARERS of the White Star, prexied by brother 
Jack Flynn, increased their ranks this year 
with the return of veterans Mike Zetts, Tom Chisari, 
Dick Burlin, Ashby Miiselman, Dick Oswald, Pete 
Kincaid, and Pat McCarthy. Ever active on the ath- 
letic fiekl, many of the brothers took over a large part 
of the coliseum, since this marked their second year of 
being without a fraternity house. Nevertheless, Sigma 
Nu continued to rank high both scholasticaliy and in 
student activities. 

Continuing a fraternity trailition, brother l.es Daly 
was elected captain of the tootball team, replacing 
Hd "Fearless" Hurson, 194.^ captain, now serving in 
the navy. Also there helping to score those points 
for 'Maryland's Big Red Team" and backing Captain 
Daly were ten more Sigma Nu actives and pledges. 

When basketball practice got under way, Sigma Nu 
had the only two veterans, jack Flynn and Warren 
Hoffccker. Flynn was elected captain and was high 
scorer in the Southern Conference. Pledges Charlie 
Campbell and Paul jaeck were both regulars on the 
basketball tinm. 15ill Coakley was named co-captain 
of the boxing team, on which pletlge Bob Troll served, 
and Percy Wolfe again served as manager. Pledge

Tom Maloney was the only undefeated man of the 
squad. 

Sigma Nu was the winner ot both the interfraternity 
leagues, softball and track. In the intramural boxing 
tournament, Frank Morrisettc won the one hundred 
forty-five pound division. 

Student activities also attracted the Sigma Nu's. 
Mike Zetts acted as president of the Monogram Club, 
while Percy Wolfe served as secretary-treasurer. Pat 
Moran was a major in the R.O.T.C., and brothers 
Jack Flynn and Mike Zetts were representatives on

A great factor in the success of the fraternity dur-

Sigma Nu's Mothers' Club. She furnished the men

her home the Sigma Nu's held their meetings and 
initiations. The room is decorated with banners, 
plaques, pictures, and trophies of the fraternity. 

Besides Sigma Nu Commander Jack Flynn, there 
was Lieutenant Commander Michael Zetts, while Tom 
Chisari served the brothers as secretary, and Ashby 
Musselman balanced the budget. 

Under the leadership of social chairman Mike Zetts, 
the social life of Sigma Nu was a highlight of the past 
year, sometimes nearly assuming the gayety of pre- 
war. Very successful were a semi-formal joint dance 
with Theta Chi and a Valentine dance with Pi Beta 
Phi sorority. The near famous Sadie Hawkins dance, 
however, was again the most heartily enjoyed social 
function of the year.

IF one plotted a graph of time against membership 
for Kappa Alpha beginning with June of 1944, 
he would observe a straight line. Although the draft 
practically annihilated KA membership, there re- 
mained two actives and one pledge, bound and deter- 
mined to keep the old KA colors flying. Therefore, 
with a minimum of chance and a maximum of ambi- 
tion, what was left of Kappa Alpha rushed and 
pledged eighteen men. Having been partially dor- 
mant for a time, the brotherhood crept out of its 
cocoon ami began to enter into the life of the Uni- 
versity as in the old days. In true KA style, Lou 
Phipps, Gerald Heatley, Hal Keller, Steve Chalmers, 
and Rob Yordy captured the limelight on the Old 
Liner basketball team, and Bill Greer served well on 
the boxing team. Not to be outdone, brother Hunky 
Doory went out for football and was claimed by the 
football squad as the star end of the team.

UNDER the guidance of president Nat Eckhardt, 
summer and fall, and president Charles Prof- 
fen, winter and spring, the Delta Sig's managed to 
keep active on campus despite the fact that their 
corps had been whittled down to seven members, 
invaluable, however, in directing Delta Sig student 
activities were the alumni advisors, led by Buck Rog- 
ers and "Zal." 

Their brothers weren't the only things that attracted 
members in the Baltimore school to the College Park 
campus. Brother George Rasch literally haunted the 
Alpha Xi Delta house, and Dave Bell did his share of 
traveling from Baltimore to C. P. to see his Alpha Xi 
girl. It was no surprise to the Delta Sig's to find their 
boy Dave married during the summer. Willie Eppes, 
Annapolis' pride and joy, burned the roads to College 
Park to see his brothers. 



After the loss of brother Jim Spamer to the army, 
Phil Brewer took over the books; with Eckhardt's 
graduation Charles Proffen became president and 
worked hard to keep Delta Sig alive on campus.

Tin; A.G.R.'s, famous in clays gone by for their 
dances and sherbet-gingerale pLinch, had a dif- 
Hciilt time keeping interested in the gayer things of 
life, with a war on one hand and an increasing de- 
mand for food production on the other. The brother- 
hood, nevertheless, composed of only thirteen men 
during 19-45, continued studies in soil and crop prin- 
ciples and kept Alpha Gamma Rho alive on campus. 
The fraternity was affected in two ways by the 



war. Not only were many of the brothers taken into 
the \arious branches of the service, but also others 
were required, on the home front, to return to their 
home farms to produce the crops necessary to meet 
the increased demands for food. Numerous alumni 
produced great quantities of food; in fact, one brother 
expected to produce over fifty thousand chickens dur- 
ing the year, and others produced vegetables, fruits, 
and meat. An A.G.R., confined to a hospital in Italy, 
was surprised at finding a can of food packed by his 
uncle.

The Alpha Gamma Rho members in the service 
would make a small army. They are sailing the seas, fly- 
ing planes, driving tanks, taking territory, and holding 
beach-heads in all the war zones. Throughout 1945 
letters were received from one hundred and forty- 
seven brothers in the service, totaling approximately 
forty-five per cent of the members taken into the 
Maryland chapter. 

The A.G.R. fraternity house was leased to Pi Beta 
Phi sorority. Consequently, the brothers were dis- 
tributed over the various campus houses. Regular 
meetings and social functions, however, kept alive 
the spirit on which the future of the chapter will be 
built.

WITH Milton Kurtz leading the remaining Tau's, 
Alpha Lambda Tau carried on their activities 
as normally as was possible. Kent Kise set an example 
in leadership for his brothers by taking over the presi- 
dencies of S.M.A.C. and Men's Glee Club and by 
holding the position of secretary of the Interfraternity 
Coimcil. Kent also v^'as a prominent member of the 
varsity rifle team and served as president before 
Kurtz. Luis Abella and Bruce Bridgman, always the 
ring leaders in fraternity fun making, were joined in 
their cavorting by pledge Bob Thibadeau. 

Five A-LT.'s, Bob Bragunier, Jim "Bing" Miller, 
Mike Langello, Dick Wood, and Bruce Bridgman, 
were called into the service within the past year. 
The Tau's sincerely missed them and endeavored, in 
every way possible, to keep them informed of the 
activities of the brotherhood.

SAM's sons have come and gone, hut in spite of the 
disorganizing changes in personnel, the traditions of 
fair play and brotherhood remained. 



SIGMA CHI CHAPTER

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1933 

During 1944 and 1945, the three members, Paul 
PimTpian, Hal Seligman, ami Gil Le\'ine, took over the 
leadership of the fraternity, each ser\'ing his brothers 
to the best of his ability. As the older members left, 
the new pledges and members stepped up to fill the 
positions on campus held by their predecessors.

held their own in all but one, basketball. Even with 
a bad season the fraternity produced two players, Bill 
Leigman and Chet Cohen, who should be kept in the 
minds of sport lovers in the future. 

The sports stories of Eddie Schrier were a feature 
of the Dicimondback, while Elliott Lapin tried out for 
the Footlight Club, was accepted, and participated in 
a Maryland play with only one quarter of Footlight 
membership behind him. Gil Levine captained the 
band for a year, and several of his brothers won com- 
missions and high warrants in the R.O.T.C. 

Austin Oppenheim had the highest average in the 
College of Business and Public Administration, while 
Jay Bisgyer had unusually high grades. The fraternity 
as a whole maintained over a 2.5 average. 

The sad news that friend and brother Bill Birn- 
baum had been killed in Germany was received near 
the close of the year. The Sigma Alpha Mu's, here 
and all over the world, hope that the ideals for which 
he died will become actualities,- and, as long as there 
is a member of Sigma Alpha Mu, he will fight for 
those ideals.

TALI Beta of Tau Epsilon Phi, like many other 
college fraternities, was forced to become in- 
active in the sprint; ot 194.T, after eighteen very suc- 
cessful years on the University of Maryland campus. 

A year after it hatl become inactive, four very 
determined members, Lenny Eisenberg, Kopel Jef- 
frey, Benny Herman, and Stanley Himmelstein, al- 
though working under great hardships, rcorganizeil 
Tau Beta chapter. So inspired were these four men 
that the difficulties which confronted them did not 
seem to lie a hindrance, but a stimulant, to the group. 

In June of 1944, the Hrst pledge class of the re- 
organized chapter, which included Bernard Groh, 
Melvin Cohen, Sidney Caller, Harry Kahn, Morris 
Silverman, Morris Starr, Morton Schwartzman, Don- 
ald Levy, and Samuel Goldhagen, was installed. 
Schwartzman, Levy, and (ioldhageii leh almost imme- 
diately for the armei.1 services. 

Although the chapter was still minus a fraternity 
house at the end of the summer of 1944, TLP's active 
membership rose to twenty-two. Shortly alter the fall 
quarter began, they regained possession of their chap- 
ter house. The house at 4(i()7 K'nox Road was opened 
on November 14, after two hectic weeks of cleaning.

painting, and repairing. A week later a house-warm- 
ing, which pr()\ed to be the most successful affair of 
1944, was given. 

TEP's present membership includes four veterans of 
this war, I ioward Schafer, Morris Silverman, Sidney 
Caller, and Robert Eichberg. Sidney Caller, one of 
the TEP alums, is an instructor in the zoology depart- 
ment at the University. 

Mel Cohen, Chancellor of Tau Epsilon Phi, served 
on the musical staff of the Clef and Key for the Var- 
sity Show and was student president of A.I.Ch.E. 
Harry Kahn, vice president of the latter organization

and treasurer of Tau Epsilon Phi, was honored in his 
junior year for having the highest average among 
chemical engineers. Stuart Schuster held the position 
of captain in the R.O.T.C, while Frank Grott pre- 
sided over A.S.M.E. 

TEP was well represented in sports. The team 
ranked second in the intramural football league and 
second in the intramural basketball league. Main- 
stays of the basketball team were Bob Lewis, Eddie 
Statter, and Moe Starr. TEP also participated in box- 
ing and baseball. 

During the last quarter, several new members have 
entered the armed forces, among them Alex Stouck, 
Kenneth Cowan, and Marvin Weisberg. Charlie 
Bresler left the campus to prep for the U. S. Military 
Academy. To make up for the loss, several alums, 
directly from overseas duty, visited the campus. 

Along with their other activities, the brothers helped 
publish the Jaii Beta Jorcb, edited by Bob Eichberg, 
held successful house dances, and kept the house in a 
veritable turmoil with their fun making. 

Thus, from a small but inspired beginning. Tan Beta 
of Tau Epsilon Phi ascended rapidly to its rightful

Pan-Hellenic Council 



Tim; Pan-Hellenic Council, composed of three 
representatives from each of the eleven sorori- 
ties at the University of Maryland, strove to promote 
a more cooperative spirit among the Greek organiza- 
tions on campus and to coordinate them with the 
activities of the University. The group met once a 
month at the various chapter houses to consider rush- 
ing and other inter-sorority affairs. During rush 
v»:eek, the Council served as mediator and enforced 
the rush rules set forth in the constitution. 

As in previous years, the Pan-Hellenic Council 
worked with the other organizations on campus for 
the success of the drives sponsored. Sorority mem- 
bers signed up tlonors and contributed toward the 
blood drive. The Council worked with the Student 
Board for the sale of war bonds among the students. 



Red Cross canteen work at Camp Springs, Maryland, 
was done by the sorority girls, and all sororities con- 
tributed to President Roosevelt's "March of Dimes" 
for infantile paralysis. The Council urged all organ- 
izations to add what they could to the Community 
War Fund drive. Cooperating with Women's League, 
the Pan-Hellenic Council aided in the presentation of 
the annual Ma\- Day. Realizing the need for light- 
ing on campus and for police protection, sorority 
women advocated the incorporation of College Park. 
In March the Pan-Hellenic Council conducted a 
workshop at which delegates from the National Pan- 
Hellenic Council, national representatives from each 
sorority, alumnae advisors for each sorority, represent- 
atives from nearby campuses, and the local Council 
participated in a discussion of pan-hellenic problems.

Members of the Council served on committees, mak-

of the workshop. The conference was preliminary 
to the reorganization of the constitution and rush 
rules of the University, aiming to clarify the goal of 
the sororities on campus. During the week end of 
the workshop a tea was held; all sorority girls were 
invited, in order that they might acquaint themselves 
with the Pan-Hellenic organization. 

Officers for the year included Dorothy Coseboom, 
president for the summer and fall quarters, and Louise 
Richards, who took over the presidency in January. 
Jane Adams served as vice-president, Virginia Molden 
acted as treasurer, and Margaret Hughes served as 
secretary. 

The Pan-Hellenic Council is looking forward to 
further progress in its endeavor to promote greater 
inter-sorority cooperation and to contribute to cam- 
pus projects and activities.

Tiir Ai PHA Diii.TA Pi's started out an active year 
by redecorating their house ami by taking 
twenty-three new pledges under their wing. Sunday 
open-house for the parents of members and pledges, 
a tea for the faculty, and a tea for the Alpha Delta 
Pi akminae were given, but the highlight of the fall 
quarter was the annual pledge dance with Mel Mitch- 
ell furnishing the downbeat. 

In March the ADPi National Panhellenic Represent- 
ative, Mrs. Joseph Hubbard, visited the chapter for 
the weekend during the Panhellenic conference. At 
the end of the winter quarter, the Alpha Delt's, in re- 
turn for the kindnesses their housemother, Mrs. Allen, 
hatl shown them, gave a dessert and bridge party for 



her and her friends. May saw the Alpha Delta Pi's 
entertaining at their spring formal and, on May fif- 
teenth, joining with the George Washington Univer- 
sity chapter and the Washington Alumnae Associa- 
tion, celebrating Founder's Day with a "Brunch" in 
Washington. 

The war was not forgotten by the ADPi's. In addi- 
tion to blood donations, winning second place in the 
War Bond Drive, and participating in scrap drives, 
canteen work, and other wartime campus activities, 
the girls sent books, magazines, and money to the 
Merchant Marine Library Association and to Walter 
Reed Hospital. 

Determined not to lose the Sigma Kappa Athletic

Trophy, the sisters worked hard at intramural sports. 
Not forgetting the non-athletic side of activities, Jane 
Morgan served as treasurer of Alpha Lambda Delta 
and president of the French Club, and Sue Hastings 
was secretary of the Spanish Club. Jane Adams was 
tapped by Omicron Nu and was chairman of the Red 
Cross Canteen Unit, while Bobbie Burdette balanced 
books for the W.R.A. and acted as vice president of 
Sigma Tau Epsilon. Phyllis Johnson and Hortense 
Bunting were treasurer and secretary, respectively, 
of the Women's Chorus, and sister Ann McGlothen 
attended Alpha Psi Omega, dramatic fraternity, 
meetings.

MAHYiAND BiiiA Chap I liR of Pi Beta F'hi was 
t'stahlishctl on campus June 17, U)44. Miss 
Am)- B. Onkin, National President, installed the chap- 
ter and initiated eleven pledges. For the rest of the 
quarter the chapter was inactive. 

In the fall of 1944, the Alpha Gamma Rho Fra- 
ternity house was rented for the duration of the war. 
Although the fraternity's furnishings were used, the 
actives and pledges were kept busy renovating the 
house. 

The first formal rushing for Maryland Beta began 




on the 21st of October with t)pen house teas. A week 
later, on Sunday, preference tea was held. At the 
end of formal rushing, the chapter pledged seventeen 
girls. 

In December, Miss Pollard, vice president of Alpha 
East Province, visited Maryland Beta and spoke to the 
actives, pledges, and officers of the group about the 
chapter. In the fall a "Hobo Party" was given by the 
pledges for the pledges of the other sororities on cam- 
pus, and a tea was given for alumnae and mothers 
of the pledges. The chapter entertained Alpha Gamma 
Rho Fraternity at a Thanksgiving dinner. During the 
week before Christmas the old pledges gave a dinner 
for the actives, aiul the new pledge class gave a dessert 
for the actives and old pletlges. In return, the actives 
gave a part)' for the pledges during the earK' part 
of January.

Before initiation in February, the pledges were re- 
quired to live at the house for a week. Although the 
house was crowded, everyone had a wonderful time. 
Ice box raids occurred nightly, and in the morning 
the girls fixed their own breakfast. Fortified with 
lumpy cereal and cofTee that had salt instead of sugar 
in it, they struggled up the hill. Before initiation was 
"silence period," and a day later the new Pi Phi's 
emerged, wearing the gold arrow of their sorority.

Omicron Nu honors. In February Sally Dunnington 
was crowned Pledge Queen. 



ALTHOUGH busy with war-time activities, Red 
Cross and U.S.O. work, the Kappas found 
time to attend meetings up the hill and to enjoy the 
inevitable games of bridge. In order to keep up some 
of the usual social functions, the traditional Spinster 
Skip and pledge dances were held. 

Between classes and in their spare time, the Kappa 
Keys sang; and Kay Weston took notes for the Foot- 
light Club and hantlled the lead in "Murder in a 
Nunnery." Grace Mattingly led the sisters up the 
hill to Red Cross meetings, and Barbara George col- 
lected the fimds for Victory Council before 'advancing 
to vice-chairman. 

Campus publications held the attention of Pi Delta

SOCIAL EVENTS for the Beta Zeta Chapter of Sigma 
Kappa were designed both for the war effort 
and for pleasure. Monthly visits were made to the 
U.S.O. in Washington, D. C, where the Sigma Kappas 
danced and played ping-pong and badminton with 
the servicemen in the penthouse of the Y.W.C.A. 
Each of the members of the chapter filled a scrapbook 
with stories, jokes, cartoons, and pictures and sent 
them to servicemen. Members contributed to the 
blood drive and other campus drives. Sigma Kappa 
was represented at the War Stamp Carnival by a for- 
tune telling booth. Bringing in the money for stamps 
were the "gypsy fortune tellers," Fat Benning, Jeanne 
Ingraham, Peggy Carpenter, Ellen Pennefeather, and 
Peggy Coldwell. 

Formal as well as informal events were held by the 
Sigma Kappas. A dinner that will long be remem- 
bered was one at which Colonel Alban, Military 
Attache of the Ecuadorian Embassy, spoke on the 
customs of Ecuador, his home. 

One of the Sigma Kappas' pet hobbies was spend- 
ing their spare time in knitting socks and sweaters. 
Nightly jam sessions, when I:laine Craley, Sigma 
Kappa's "First Lady" of the piano, played, and chem 
major Margaret Barry presentetl her own special ar- 
rangement of "Walter," were enjoyed by everyone. 

Out in full force to see sister Joan Howard do a 
specialty tap dance in the Varsity Show went the 
Sigma Kappas. Artists Kate Murgia, Rae Armstrong, 
and Pat Bush were representatives to the Art Club. 
Cordie Alden and Peggy Coldwell, members of the 



Glee Club, went to Martinsburg, Virginia, to the 
Naval Hospital, Fort Belvoir, and to Annapolis to sing 
foi the servicemen. 

The Sigma Kappas will long remember the beau- 
tiful trip on which Mrs. Thomas Jefferson Randolph, 
their housemother, took them to see Monticello, the 
home of Thomas Jefferson. After going through 
Monticello, the sisters went to Mrs. Randolph's home 
in Waynesboro, Virginia, and all came home tired 
but thrilled.

IN addition to participating in the projects of the 
Victory Council, the Tri-Delts rounded their 
sphere of activities to include several of their own. 
in the spring, the girls aided the College Park Red 
Cross Unit by rolling bandages two afternoons a 
week, and throughout the )'ear the sisters became 
members and assisted at the American Theater Wing's 
Stage Door Canteen in Washington.

war effort in every way possible. One hundred dol- 
lars was given to the Red Cross to help buy a mobile 
piano. Many of the girls were hostesses at Camp 
Springs, and groups entertained convalescents at the 
Beltsville Rehabilitation Center. Sally Dubois served 
as chairman of the Bond Sales Committee, and the 
Alpha Xi's supported a war refugee, Peter Winter- 
mitz, who was, through Alpha Xi aid, returned to his 
mother. 

Life at Alpha Xi was not all work and no play. 
After-dinner bridge games still held the attention of 
many, and the usual six girls trekketl to Annapolis 
every weekend. The unusually large pledge class 
gave a Christmas part\' for the acti\es, a formal Valen- 
tine dance was held, aiul a tea was given in honor of 
the national president and province president.

Founded at BARNARD COLLEGE in 1897 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1924 



EVERY quarter the A O Pi's decorated their house, 
fdund a hard-to-get eight-piece orchestra, and 
threw open their portals to the entire student body. 
F-or one of the most successful dances, the house was 
tinned into "joe's Tavern," complete with red and 
white checked tablecloths and a bar "for gendemen 
only." 

All the A. O. Pi's participated in the programs for 
the officers and enlisted men at Forest Glen and Camp 
Ord, branches ut Walter Reed Hospital, and the near 
lamuus cjuintet took part in the Varsity Show and 
sandwiched in acts for various shows on campus. 
Jean Smith, one of the singing five, was A O Pi gavel 
swinger for the year, and Rettv Atkinson was vice 




president of Women's Chorus and vice president and 
Pledge Master of the sorority. Irene Fredrickson pre- 
sided over the Women's Chorus, decorated for Stu- 
dent Board dances, and served as treasurer of the Pan- 
Hellenic Council. Mortar Board tapped Vivien 
Pruitt; Jean Engelbach was initiated into Omicron Nu; 
and Jane Boswell became a member of Phi Kappa Phi. 

The A C) Pi's selected as the most popular man on 
campus the mailman. Many of the writers of the 
awaited letters came home to their AlpJTa Omicron Pi 
girls, i.lepri\ing the chapter of "Little Boo" Boswell, 
Fran Hazard, Suzy Randall, Nedra Simmons, and 
Lois Wellington. 

For the twentieth anniversary of the installation of 
A O Pi as the first national sorority on the .Maryland 
campus, the girls entertained at an open house tea 
and by pledging more rushees than any other sorority 
on campus. New pledge Dotty McLean was chosen 
as Queen of the Battalion Ball, while pledge Jeanne 
Wannan was matle a member of Alpha Lambda Delta.

Alpha Epsilon Phi 





ALPHA MU CHAPTER 

Founded at BARNARD COLLEGE in 1909 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 194 i 



Ai I'liA Mu's second year as a chapter of Alpha 
[ipsilon Phi pidved as eventful as its first. 
Myra Cohen and Ruth Shiir acted as Dean and Suh- 
Dean respectively, and Carol Bernstein balanced the 
budget, while Beverly Brody took minutes and Norma 
Hofstadter attended to correspondence. With Nata- 
lie Eskwith as Rushing Captain, the chapter pledged 
eighteen girls during the year. 

War activities took up a great deal of everyone's 
time this year. Myra Levenson and Naomi Ziggles 
spurretl tlie girls on to greater patriotic efforts. Their 
efforts were not fruitless, for Hannah Needle became 
well known for her Red Cross knitting, and both 
Hannah antl Vivian Smelkinson served breakfast at 
the Servicemen's Canteen in Baltimore on Sunday 
mornings. The rest of the girls divided their time be- 
tween hospital wards in Baltimore and in Washington, 
helping to serve at mealtimes when the shortage was 
most severely felt. The pledge group did an excel- 
lent job of providing amusing scrap books for wound- 
ed servicemen. As a reward, they were given a 
Pledge Queen Dance, at which lerne Kandcl was 
chosen Queen of the Alpha Epsilon Phi pledge group. 

The cultural angle was ably taken care of by Vivian 
Rose and Tcma Goldiner in the Footlight Club and 
by Helene Aaronson, Natalie Eskwith, Sylvia Cohen, 



and Judy Goldstein in the Dance Club. Ruth Shur 
devoted her time to the handling of international rela- 
tions in the French Club, while Ruth Wolfson, Rhona 
Benesch, Norma Hofstadter, and Vivian Smelkinson 
attempted to soke social problems at the Sociology 
Club meetings. Rhona concerned herself also with 
the athletic potentialities of the sorority by managing 
the basketball team. Tcma Rubenstein worked on the 
advertising staff of the Diiiino/ii/l'iici' and represented 
AEPhi at the Victory Council gatherings. 

Struck b\' the shortage of painters, yet resolved to 
have their room redecorated, Lucille Gorfine and Jean 
^'alom donned workmen's overalls and relieved the

whiteness of their walls and ceiling with splashes of 
Holland blue paint. Not much in evidence during 
the winter months were the Dean and the Sub-Dean. 
They were busy with practice teaching during the 
day and spent their evenings consulting alumns Bess 
Greenspoon and Estelle Wolowitz, now full-fledged 
school teachers. 

As this year's seniors look back on their last year 
at Maryland, they will remember laughter, fraternal- 
ism, and the serious experiences characteristic of war- 
time college life.

Phi Sigma Sigma 





BETA ALPHA CHAPTER 

Founded at HUNTER COLLEGE in 1913 

Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

ill 1936 



AFTER completing a successful rush season, the 
Phi Sigma Sigma's began a year of hard work 
socially, scholastically, and philanthropically. 

Vivian Davis, the Phi Sig Philanthropy Chairman, 
kept the girls on their toes sponsoring a stocking 
drive and winning the Fifth War Loan Drive. Lennie 
Shapiro and Rickye Brendler were busy throughout 
the year at the Stage Door Canteen in Washington, 
while Irene Caplan and Marilyn Rubin helped enter- 
tain the boys at Walter Reed Hospital. With the 
addition of some Phi Sig blood the Red Cross Blood 
Bank became a bit wealthier and the girls became a 
little happier. 

Lila Berkman, Phi Sig's own Thespian, held her 
own in Footlight productions and also acted as social 
chairman of the club. Another talented sister, Char- 
lotte Schneider, won a modeling contest in Wash- 
ington. Arlenc Raskin was tapped for Sigma Alpha 
Omicron, bacteriology fraternity, while Harriet Kra- 
kow was installed in Alpha Lambda Delta, women's 
freshman honor society. 

Despite their numerous activities "up the hill" in 
Women's League, Pan-Mel, W.R.A., and Victory 
Council, the sisters had time for mischief. Bett\ 
Barban, president, with all her dignity, was guilty oi 
charging up and down the stairs in the fashion of the 
Teddy Roosevelt of Jrseuic <iM<f Old £<ice. Botsie 



Weinstein couldn't seem to get out of the habit of 
pie-bed making, much to the chagrin of "William" 
Wolpert, whose plots for revenge evolved around wet 
washcloths and cornflakes. 

The Phi Sig telephone seemed to ring constantly, 
for calls from camps all over the country, and even 
cables from Russia came through to the girls. 

With pinnings, engagements, and weddings, the sis- 
ters were busy all winter munching chocolates from 
the well-known five-pound boxes. Annette Bernstein 
Offen and Ruth Singer Taubman ranked with the gal- 
lant souls who returned to school with their new 
degree of Mrs. 




Jhii li Ibi: iiMv il rciiv. FU((1

Putting their own Good Neighbor Policy into effect, 
the Phi Sig's entertained in November in honor of 
their campus neighbors. It was discovered at the 
time that the local chapter house is the oldest house 
in College Park, the estate having formerly enveloped 
all of what is now College Park. Although house- 
parties are not as common as they used to be, the sis- 
ters held one in honor of their national officers, and 
representatives from four eastern chapters spent the 
weekend of February ninth as guests of the local 
chapter. Representatives from Hunter College, Adel- 
phi College, George Washington University, and 
Temple University sampled real Maryland hospitality. 
The traditional housemother's affair, a dessert this 
year, was held in March.

Under the tDinmnnd of Col. Harlan Griswold, the 
Maryland ROTC worked hard for the past year keep- 
ing up its honor rntint^ and preparini? its members for 
active service in the armed forces. With the climinn- 



ROTC 



tion of the Advanced Army Program, the emphasis 
in military instruction was on preparing men for the 
Basic Training they will get upon induction. 

Capt. George Dunlap and First Lt. Harold Your- 
man were the ROTC instructors. They were assisted 
by M/Sgt. Charles Dodson and Tech. Sgt. Fay Nor- 
ris. M /Sgt. Howard Seebo held down the Sergeant 
Major's job. 

With the addition of an ASTCR) company, the 
battalion increased in size during 1944 to four com- 
panies. With the start of 1945, however, only enough 
men were available to form two companies, the AST

During the winter months, the new Armory proved 
valuable in saving hours that might have been lost 
because of Maryland's famous bad weather on drill 
days. If it was too unpleasant to drill out-of-doors, 
the battalion formed inside and "carried out the pre- 
scribed drill for the day." 

William Scull was the Cadet Colonel during the 
spring and summer quarters, with Leonard Eisenberg 
and Barney Eyler the Cadet Majors. Commanding the 
companies under Scull were Randolph Coyle, James 
Stapp, Calvin Dutton, and William Rosen. Randolph 
Coyle followed Scull as Cadet Colonel during the fall

years to come. Kind farmers along the way fed pieces 
of delicious watermelon to the men with disastrous 
results in the form of "gig" slips.

government, the services, and the universities. The 
health of the man in service, the teamwork he has 
been trained in, and the manner in which he is able

to coordinate his innate and acquired abilities are of 
prime importance to the success of each of the armed 
services. 

The students at the University of Maryland re- 
ceived the same training that the A.S.T. students had 
received in order that they might be physically fit 
upon entering the service. Under the direction of Dr. 
Clarence W. Spears, each phase of the physical edu- 
cation program was taken care of. 

Supplementing the compulsory program were the 
intramural sports of football, basketball, and boxing 
during the winter. With spring and warm weather, 
gym work, corrective exercises, tennis, baseball, track, 
and football became the main sports of Maryland 
students.

FOOTBALL 



DR. Clarence W. Spears began his second year 
as head coach at the University of Maryland 
with a squad composed of seventeen-year-olds, 4F's, 
and a few discharged service men. Although eleven 
lettermen were returning and big things were expected 
of the Old Liners, they never seemed to click because 
of a continually changing lineup due to injuries. 

History was made as the Maryland University Old 
Liners met the Hampden-Sydney Tigers in Byrd Sta- 
dium in the first game played under lights. However, 
Maryland had a case of opening game jitters and fum-

traveled next to North Carolina to meet the Wake

big guns and rolled over the Liners to the tune of

Byrd Stadium and were held to a b-b tie, Maryland

M" Club 



ALTHOUGH the functions of the M Club have 
. been lessened because of the fewer wearers 
of the M and the decrease in men students, some ac- 
tivity has been engaged in by the members. The club 
was established years ago to honor men who hatl done 
outstanding work in athletics. The organization fos- 
ters better intercollegiate athletics and helps athletes 
in any way possible. A scholarship is ofTered to those 
men who show special ability in sports, the tuition be- 
ing paid by the funds of the club. 

In the fall the club met tn plan tor the homecoming 
dance, the proceeds of which were used to pay for the 
scholarships oflfcrcd. Serving as president was Mr. 
E. E. Powell, former lacrosse star who initiated the 
playing of lacrosse at the University. Dr. F:rnest N. 
Cory retained his position of secretary-treasurer of the 
organization. Only letter men may become members 
of the M Club. 



Principal function of the athletic club was the spon- 
soring of intramural athletics. The members make 
the rules, form the league, and regulate the games. 
This year, as in past years, the club served mainly as 
a medium for uniting men students who have similar 
interests and a desire to see Maryland outstanding in 
athletics.

BASKETBALL 



THE twenty-second year of coaching for Mr. Bur- 
ton Shipley was completed in 1945 at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, an indication of his popularity 
on the campus. As a student, previous to World War 
I, he was a member of the basketball, baseball, and 
football squads. Mr. Shipley keeps in close touch with 
his boys and watches their every move on the floor, 
looking for ways to improve their playing. 

Although paced by the ever accurate Jack Flynn, 
who led in total points for games played in the South- 
ern Conference, the Marylanders were too weak to

state when with Forest Park High School, played both 
center and forward. From Charlotte Hall to appear 
on the squad for the first time this year came Jack 
Heatley. Tall and agile, Headey had considerable 
stamina and fight and made a good defense man. Steve 
Chalmers, outstanding on floor plays and under the 
basket, came to Maryland from George Washington 
University and served the team as center, although he 
had played the forward position for several years.

BOXING

in January, Coach F\iddy Kane acted as head man for 
the Maryland boxers. Replacing Fausto Rubini, who 
received a commission in the navy, Kane initiated an 
intramural boxing program in December, l'^)4-}, in 
onler to unearth talent for the season's team. He was 
assisted by Percy Wolfe, a student at the University, 
who has had experience in the Held of boxing and 
who offered his services to the team for the season. 
One of the cleverest fighters at Maryland in many 
years, Tom Maloney has a good set of fists and con- 
siderable speed. His footwork in the ring was oiit-

standing. Ken Malone, from Baltimore, showed the 
ability he is capable of exhibiting toward the end of 
the year. One of his greatest assets was the fine phys- 
ical condition in which he kept himself. Alex Boben- 
ko, captain of the team and one of its best fighters, 
was forced to give up boxing because of the great 
amount of study connected with his courses in den- 
tistry. A good worker was Bill Greer, one-hundred- 
and forty-five-pound class. After Harold Donofrio 
went out of action. Bill Filbert held down the one- 
hundred-thirty-five-poimd class. Not a newcomer to 
the team, Filbert saw a good deal of action. Jose 
Fossas, Puerto Rico's contribution to the Maryland 
team, showed plenty of stamina and punch but met 
too much opposition. 

Despite the fact that only a few matches were won 
by the Maryland boxers, the student body never lost 
interest in them.

Women's sports at the University consisted of 
intrnnuirnl toiiinaments, play-days with vari- 
ous nearby colleges, and inner-class sports. While the 
sophomores and seniors cupped the softball tourna- 
ment trophy, Jean Burnside and Janet Griffith were 
winners in tennis and Virs^inia Amos won the archery 
intramural tournament. A new intramural, seven- 



player hockey, was brought forth in the fall and won 
by Delta Delta Delta. In intramural bowling, Kappa 
Delta took first place. The fall quarter was climaxed 
by the W.R.A. Awards Banquet at which fourteen 
girls recei\ed "M" letters ami tapping for Sigma Tau 
Epsilon took place. During the winter, activities in- 
cluded intramural basketball, won by Sigma Kappa 
and the distribution of the Maryland Official Basket- 
ball Ratings to ten qualified girls. The Sigma Tau Ep- 
silon Basketball Trophv- and the Sigma Kappa Athletic
