EDICATED to Judge William P. 
Cole, Jr., student, athlete, lawyer, and 
untiring friend of the students of the 
University of Maryland and of the 
people of this state, who was this year 
elected as Chairman of the Board of 
Regents. 

In 1910, "Bill" Cole was graduated 
from the University of Maryland and 
received his degree in engineering. As a 
student, his activities included baseball, 
in which he won his letter in 1909; 
manager of the nine in 1910; secretary 
of the athletic council; lieutenant in 
the military unit; secretary-treasurer of 
the Rossborough Club; business man- 
ager of both the May and June ball 
organizations; member of Conference 
Committee; humorous editor of The Re- 
veille, as the yearbook was then called; 
and, senior orator. 

After he had received his engineering 
degree, the young William Cole took a 
degree in the Law School in Baltimore. 
Having a fine education and a splendid 
legacy of public service left by his 
father, William P. Cole, Sr., he began 
to practice law in his home town, Tow- 



son. A few years later, he was elected 
by a large majority as a member of 
Congress from the Second District. He 
served as a member of Congress over 
a long period until he resigned two 
years ago to become Judge of the 
United States Customs Court, with 
headquarters at New York City, in 
which capacity he still serves the 
nation. 

During the first World War, Judge 
Cole served as a captain and fought 
through Belgium and France. His son, 
Billy, who was graduated from the Uni- 
versity of Maryland just as World War 
II broke out, was killed in action as the 
United States Army was entering Ger- 
many. 

Judge Cole is serving his second term 
of nine years as a member of the Board 
of Regents of the University. With the 
help of a man who attended the Uni- 
versity and has known it well, we are 
assured a school that we may be proud 
of, a school that has grown from the 
small agricultural college of 1850 to the 
great university it is today and will be 
in the future.

The many contributions that Dr. Harry Clifton Byrd 
has made to the development of the University of 
Maryland in his ten years of service as President would 
be difficult to enumerate. Under his capable and in- 
spiring leadership, the University withstood the many 
problems which arose during the past war and is looking 
forward to an even greater future in a peaceful world.

The Graduate School Council, composed of 
the faculty who serve as instructors in the 
University, is primarily concerned with estab- 
lishing requirements for degrees and investi- 
gating and approving candidates. While con- 
tinuing to train students in the fields of re- 
search, teaching, and commerce, the Council 
also offers instruction to college graduates, 
holders of Master's Degrees, and advanced 
undergraduate students at College Park and 
Baltimore.

Ever since its establishment in 1919, Dr. 
Charles O. Appleman has served as Dean of the 
Graduate School Council. Doctor Appleman 
completed his undergraduate studies at Dick- 
inson College, where he specialized in botany 
and plant physiology. He received his degree 
of Doctor of Philosophy in Bacteriology at the 
University of Chicago. 

Opportunities for graduate work have been 
greatly increased through the cooperation of 
the Federal Research Center at Beltsville and 
the laboratories of the Bureau of Mines and 
Fisheries on the campus. Industrial firms and 
the federal government have established 
fellowships for graduate study. 

The degrees offered are Master of Arts, 
Master of Science, Master of Education, Master 
of Business Administration, and Doctor of 
Philosophy.

The College of Agriculture offers both gen- 
eral and specialized training to students who 
wish to prepare for professional work in the 
broad field of agriculture. Its strength lies in 
the close coordination of the instructional, re- 
search, extension, and reguhitorv functions 
within the individual departments, between 
the several departments, and in the University 
as a whole. 



Responsible for the beginnings of the College 
Park branch of the University is the College 
of Agriculture. Throughout the years, the 
College has continued to fit its young men 
and women for positions in all parts of the 
world. 

With tlic advent of peace, its younger staff 
members are now returning to take over their 
classes again.

Acting Dean J. Freeman Pyle 



The College of Arts and Sciences provides a 
broad education in liberal arts and sciences. 
In the junior and senior years, the student 
specializes in courses leading toward profes- 
sional, vocational, or cultural goals. Included 




/l^ and Mclem^ 



in the College are the departments of biological 
sciences, economics, history, languages and 
literature, physical sciences, political science, 
psychology, and sociology. 

This year saw the return of several instruc- 
tors from the armed forces. Under the veter- 
ans' program, the enrollment in the College of 
Arts and Sciences was greater than at any time 
in the history of the University. Continuing to 
maintain high standards, the College is prepar- 
ing these men to succeed in their chosen fields.

Excellent opportunities are offered to the 
students of the College of Business and Public 
Administration to study the economic and 
commercial problems of two nearby metro- 
politan centers. Instruction is given in Business 
Administration, Secretarial Training, Public 
Administration, and in the departments of 
Foreign Trade and Human and Natural Re- 
sources. 

Upon graduation from the College, students 
are qualified for service in business firms and 




governmental agencies and for teaching com- 
mercial subjects and economics in high schools 
and colleges. Training for effective manage- 
ment is the primary objective of the College. 
With the postwar development of business and 
industry, the demand for young men and 
women educated in these fields is rapidly in- 
creasing.

Foremost among the aims of the College of 
Education is the preparation of young people 
for teaching in public schools. Upon these 
teachers rests the responsibility of showing 
the youth of the Nation a better way of 
life. 

The College offers courses for those who 
w^ish to teach in the secondary, preparatory, 
and vocational schools. Bachelor of Arts or 
Bachelor of Science degrees are conferred in 
Academic, Commercial, Business, Home Eco- 



nomics, and Elementary Education. In the 
past year the departments of Men's and 
Women's Physical Education have again be- 
come a part of the College of Education. 
Recent too are the added curricula of Dental 
and Nursery School Education. 

Although at present the College of Educa- 
tion is without a dean. Acting Dean Brechbill 
has done much to broaden the college program 
in education. In the near future a new dean 
will be appointed.

Dating hack to 18519 the history of engineer- 
ing at the University of Maryland has been 
one of continual progress. The outstanding 
development of the past year was the generous 
gift of $1,500,000 from Glenn L. Martin, pi- 
oneer aviator and Baltimore plane manufac- 
turer, for new engineering buildings and 
equipment; the State Legislature appropriated 
an additional $750,000. An endowment of 
$ioo,ooo has been set aside for the Glenn L. 
Martin Aeronautical Research Foundation. 



The entire project is expected to result in the 
largest single advancement in the history of 
the University. 

During the past year manv of our former 
engineering students who were in service have 
returned, and with them have come many 
veterans who are here for the first time. 

During the reconversion period ahead, the 
College of Engineering will continue to render 
maximum service to the State and to the 
Nation.

The various curricula in the College of Home 
Economics educate young women for the man- 
agement of a home and family and equip them 
to earn a livelihood. With the close of the 
war and the termination of war services, many 
home economists are turning to the fields of 
teaching, extension, and dietetics. 

The College of Home Economics is organized 
into the Departments of Foods and Nutrition; 
Textiles, Clothing, and Art; and Home and 




Taking it seriously. 

Institution Management. A home management 
house is maintained to give the students prac- 
tical experience. 

Students having high scholastic averages 
may be elected to Omicron Nu, the National 
Home Economics Honor Society. The Home 
Economics Club is affiliated with the Ameri- 
can Home Economics Association.

The urgent need for trained nurses during 
the past war proved an inspiration to the 
young women of America. They offered them- 
selves then, as well as now, for the work which 
was so helpful in making this world a better 
place in which to live. 

One of the most signihcant symbols of the 
nursing profession is the white graduate cap 
which differs from school to school. The cap 
awarded to the University Hospital nurses is 
patterned after the one worn by Florence 
Nightingale; this cap is also worn by the 
graduates of Miss Nightingale's own nursing 
school, St. Thomas Hospital, London, 
England. 

For the first time in the history of the Uni- 
versity Hospital, the student nurses have pub- 
lished a bi-monthly newspaper. The Medical 
Dropper. This paper has won the praise of the 




Checking the lay of the land. 

House Staff, the visiting doctors, and the 
medical students, as well as that of the nurses 
themselves. 

Nurses have earned themselves the admira- 
tion and gratitude of all Americans by their 
deeds of valor, humanitarianism, and mercy.

T. 



HE first peacetime class to enter the Uni- 
versity of Maryland in three years, the Class of 
1949 did what it could to restore the pre-war 
atmosphere on campus; and, by the end of Feb- 
ruary, the only visible evidence of the recently 
concluded war was the mixture of GI uniforms 
and navy raincoats with the traditionally col- 
legiate plaid shirts. While the majority of 
freshmen concentrated largely on making the 
necessary scholastic average, there was always 
time for play, and morale was high. The 
"'49ers" made their place on campus at Home- 
coming in November when they pulled the 
sophomores into Paint Branch during the 
annual tug-of-war. As a result, they threw 
away their rat caps and were absorbed into 
the student body as freshmen instead of "rats" 
and "rabbits." 

Because of the influx of new members during 
the fall, the Class of 1949 delayed its organizing 
until early in December, when Jack Clark de- 



^

feated Chuck Callegary for the class presi- 
dency. Other officers elected at that time were 
Fred DeMarr, vice-president; Nell Ligon, secre- 
tary; Barbara Schneider, treasurer; Mary Pat 
Smith, historian; and, Bob Kambies, sergeant- 
at-arms. 

Being the largest class on campus, the fresh- 
men were chiefly veterans who, by mid- 
semester, had recaptured their positions in 
most of the men's dorms which had been 
occupied by coeds during the war. To help 
these new freshmen, most of whom had entered 
the University of Maryland at the beginning 
of the second semester, to get acquainted, the 
class sponsored a series of freshman mixers in 
place of the usual single mixer. These dances 
were given in the new student lounge with 
the aid of the freshman girls in Margaret 
Brent, Anne Arundel, Dorm C, and Calvert 
Hall. 

Biggest item on the activity schedule of the 



"forty-niners" was the traditional freshman 
prom. Here again the frosh showed ingenuity 
in the choice of a theme, featuring the music of 
Clark Sheetenhelm and his orchestra. The 
dance committee, under the direction of Jack 
Clark, class prexy, and Dick Betson, social 
chairman, termed their dance the "Gold Rush 
of '49." Goldie Schall and her decoration 
committee did a hrst-rate job of transforming 
the Gym Armory into an appropriate setting. 
Murals, depicting the glorious future of the 
"'49ers" at Maryland, were strategically 
placed around the gym. To further carry out 
the theme, picks and shovels were used as 
decorations. At midnight, a colorful spectacle 
occurred as the band played "Pennies from 
Heaven" and a net of black and gold parted, 
releasing multi-colored balloons to descend 
upon the dancers. All in all, the "'49ers" gave 
Maryland a novel and enjoyable evening. 
Thus began the story of the Class of 1949. 



The nights are grim.

X 



HE sophomore class, organized for the first 
time since 1943, pooled its talents and energies 
and really went places this year. President Bill 
Eckhardt, Vice-President Bill Greer, Secretary 
Sally Morgan, and Treasurer Carol Haase 
proved themselves wise choices for class 
officers, leading the sophs to fun and renown on 
the Maryland campus. Ably assisting them 
were Hal Donfrio, Weems Hawkins, Larry 
Cooper, Patty Piper, and a sophomore class 
united in spirit and literally "raring to go." 

The sophs wrote their first page in Mary- 
land campus history when they sponsored the 
8th Victory Loan Drive and came through 
with flying colors. A goal of $3000 was easily 
surpassed, and the final count showed that the 
drive had netted $17,734. Lennis Janes and 
Johnsie Wright handled the sale of stamps and 
bonds to the students and faculty respectively. 




22 



Dee Speed, chairman of the drive, featured a 
novel stamp booth at the Veterans' Dance to 
further increase the sales. Rita Hickernell did 
an excellent job of handling poster publicity 
for the drive, and the sophomore class and the 
entire student body responded in a manner 
that proved that, although the war is over 
and the social calendar is as long as in the pre- 
war times, Maryland students have not let 
down their wartime activities. 

February xi was the biggest day for the 
sophomores during 1945-1546. Just to prove to 
all doubting Thomases that Maryland was 
really back to its pre-war social pace, the sophs 
gave a "Winter Frolic" that will long remain 
a pleasant memory to the lucky hundreds who 
attended. Under the able chairmanship of 
Weems Hawkins, the class did things right by 
engaging Stan Brown and his orchestra, a 



favorite among colleges and universities in this 
area. Result was an evening of smooth and 
solid rhythm, climaxed by a crowning, not of 
a queen, but a King of the Prom. The big 
moment of the evening came when bashful 
Gene "Reds" Kinney was led amidst cheers to 
his throne set in front of a mammoth snow 
ball. Thus the sophs added a new member to 
campus royalty, and Maryland, after many 
Queens, once again has a King. Plaudits for 
the novel decorations scheme go to the class 
social committee headed by Ada Anne Howie 
and Pat Cross. All in all, the sophs gave 
Maryland one of its peppiest and most in- 
genious social evenings of the spring season. 
The Class of '48, however, did not get all 
the breaks. Just ask anyone of them about the 
tug-of-war against the freshmen at the begin- 
ning of the year. 



Look' s like fun . . . 



Even for King Kinney!

JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS 

President Ray Hesse 

Vice-President Page Chesser 

Secretary-Treasurer Phyllis Sell 

Historian Barbara Mumford 



z 



HE beginning of rhc post-war period found 
the Class of 1947 ready and eager to revive the 
old Maryland spirit. Like the other classes, 
they recovered quickly from the confusion and 
disorganization of the war years and started 
the ball rolling with class elections early in 
the fall. After a vigorous campaign that re- 
flected the revived class spirit and enthusiasm 
that generally pervaded the campus, the jun- 
iors elected their officers. Ray Hesse was 
victorious in the final balloting for president. 
Other officers elected were Page Chesser, vice- 
president; Phyllis Sell, secretary-treasurer; and 
Barbara Mumford, historian. Throughout the 
year the victorious candidates did a hundred- 
percent job of reviving traditional and colorful 
junior class activities. 

The lirst big result of their work and one 
which did much to boost the morale of all 
Marylanders was the revival of the traditional 




24 



Junior Promenade. In past years, this Prom 
had been the annual highlight of Maryland's 
social season, but due to wartime conditions 
the dance had been left off the social calendar 
since 1943 (the year of the famed "trolley car" 
prom). The Class of '47 set to work to revive 
this time-honored custom at Maryland and 
the result was one of the most colorful dances 
in Maryland history. Bobby Byrne and his 
orchestra, who have played at other out- 
standing Maryland dances in the past, were 
engaged to furnish the music in the impressive 
ballroom of Washington's Willard Hotel. As 
of old, the dance was strictly formal; and in 
the best Maryland tradition, the upperclass- 
men promenaded to the strains of the Grand 
March which climaxed the evening. Earlier, 
there had been a moment of suspense when 
announcement was made of the selection of 
Bert Williams, Tri Delt, to reign as Miss Terra- 



pin of 1946. The Terrapin queen this year was 
chosen by the victors of the Rose Bowl, the 
University of Alabama's football team, who 
selected the winning candidate on the basis of 
beauty, brains, and intelligence. 

In between dances, the tux-clad gentlemen 
and their elegantly attired ladies found refresh- 
ment at the soft drink stand specially set up 
for the evening by the Prom committee. By 
unanimous consent, the Prom was the high- 
light of the 1945-1946 season. 

Later in the spring, the juniors inaugurated 
a new class custom when, in conjunction with 
Mortar Board, they took over the responsi- 
bility of sponsoring the annual May Day cere- 
monies. As in past years. May Day left an 
impression of charm and beauty witnessed in 
an appropriately charming and beautiful set- 
ting. To the Class of '47 goes thanks for 
carrying on a significant Maryland tradition. 



Big night for all . . .

of 1946 



No more of this 
. . . or this. 



October, 194^, despite the impact of Pearl 
Harbor, saw a record number of rats and rab- 
bits descend on the Maryland campus. These 
neophytes, the dignified seniors of 1946, made 
their debut at the University first in rat hats 
and pig tails, later in tuxes and tails at the 
traditional Freshman Prom. With the dousing 
of their arch rivals, the sophomores, in Paint 
Branch, the new class established themselves 
as a group to be reckoned with in Maryland 
life. 

Despite the loss of men to the armed forces 
and the lapse of class organization for the next 
two years, the present seniors held the class 
together during the difficult war years, and, 
with the revival of formal class organization 
this year, they once again became active. 
Early in the fall they elected Fred Safford, 
president; Jerry Cleaver, vice-president; Jeanne 
Bennett, secretary; and Louise Vance, treas- 
urer. These officers were responsible for ar- 
ranging the traditional Senior Class Com- 
mencement Week activities. As a result of their 
planning, the annual senior banquet was held 
in the Statler Hotel's Congressional Room. 
Under their guidance also, the graduation cere- 
monies and baccalaureate service were planned 
and carried out. Climaxing this week of cere- 
mony and solemnity, the seniors of 1946 gave 
their final collegiate social function, the time- 
honored Senior Ball, thereby completing their 
four year rise from humble wearers of the rat 
cap to proud bearers of the Mortar Board. 




But this 

. . . and this.

The Student Board started the year with a 
greeting from the Arts and Sciences steps to 
the new students, pep rallies to cheer our foot- 
ball team to victory, and student dances, most 
successful of which was the Homecoming 
Dance featuring Jerry Wald's orchestra. How- 
ever, the Board cannot take full credit for this 
dance, as the "M" Club played a major role 
in making it a success. In addition to these 
social activities, the Board organized the sen- 
ior, junior, sophomore, and freshman classes, 
which had been inactive since 1942-. 

Under the able direction of Portia Searls, a 
Student Lounge was established in the Armory, 
where students could enjoy bridge, ping-pong, 
and dancing. Both the Rossborough and Men's 
League were reorganized and became active in 
February. 

Also in February the Student Board was 
arbitrarily disbanded to make way for the 
re-activated Student Government Association 
with its revised constitution; this organization 






had not been in operation for four years. In- 
vestigation and basic plans were made with 
regard to the construction of a Student Union 
building on the Maryland campus, the realiza- 
tion of which is anticipated in the near tuture. 
Thus, in the transition \\-o\\\ a wartime 
schedule of campus activities to one of peace, 
the S.G.A. has been working to reestablish 
many of Maryland's hallowed traditions and 
organizations.

Women's League is that branch of the Stu- 
dent Government Association of the University 
which formulates and enforces the rules and 
regulations pertaining to the conduct of 
women students on campus. This organization 
functions on a democratic basis; the officers 
are chosen by the women students in the spring 
of the preceding year, and the girls choose 
their representatives from their own house on 
or near campus. 

However, the administering of rules and 
regulations is not its sole function. It assisted 
the Student Board in setting up the first out- 
door nativity scene and organized the Christ- 
mas program. It sponsored many and sup- 



ported all of the various campus drives, among 
which was the very successful clothing drive. 
Along with the junior class it sponsored the 
picturesque May Day celebration, which is 
one of the outstanding yearly activities on 
campus. Chairman Randy Randall took all 
the responsibility for this big occasion and 
did an outstanding job in making it a huge 
success. 

The student officers who led these varied 
activities and helped to make the social life 
of the girls on campus most desirable were 
Betty Jackson, president, Peggy Maxwell, vice- 
president, Marjorie Frederick, secretary, and 
Louisa White, treasurer.

The Veterans' Club of the University of 
Maryland was founded during the spring se- 
mester of 1945. The club got under way 
through the efforts of Harwood Jackson and a 
small but active nucleus. Fall semester of the 
new school vear brought with it new elections; 
and, under the presidency of William Hoff, the 
organization started to progress far beyond 
expectations. With the able assistance of such 



vets as "Chuck " Callegary, Harvey Allen, Bob 
Forsberg, Al Lehman, and many others, the 
club really became active in school affairs. The 
members handled a variety of jobs that in- 
cluded everything from management of the 
Homecoming Day floats to decorating the 
tunnel for Christmas. The manger scene, 
which they set up and surrounded with Christ- 
mas greens, added a touch of beauty to the 



T/'f chosen elevai.

snow-covered campus during the Christmas 
season. 

The veterans entered teams in all intra- 
mural meets and the intramural touch foot- 
ball championship was captured by the Veter- 
ans' Club team, a hard driving unit that was 
never defeated nor even scored upon. In such 
other sports as basketball and softball, the 
veterans' teams proved a threat to all rivals. 

On December 7, 1945, the club held its out- 
standing social function of the year, a Victory 
dance to commemorate the gallant efforts of 



all our fighting men. The dance was highly 
successful, especially for the veterans them- 
selves who experienced "that old college feel- 
ing" once again. 

Thus the records show a highly satisfactory 
beginning for the Veterans' Club. This organi- 
zation, more than any other, has made every 
veteran feel like an integral and operating part 
of the University. As time goes on and its 
membership multiplies, it is certain that much 
more will be heard from the Vets' Club in the 
days to come.

in American Colleges and Universities 



The Student Board members at the end of 
the fall semester chose the twenty upperclass- 
men they considered to have contributed nu)st 
to the University. These twenty people will 
be ranked with outstanding students of other 
colleges in the publication, Who's Who in Awer- 
icitti Colleges and Universities. 

These thirteen girls and seven boys have 
contributed much towards making the campus 



experiences of themselves and others richer in 
many ways. They have served on the coun- 
cil of the Student Government Association; 
worked with University publications; 
officiated at their sororities and fraternities, 
and other campus organizations; partici- 
pated in athletics; and served the student 
body faithfully whenever an opportunity 
presented itself.

The great responsibility of advising and as- 
suring the success of the student publications 
of the University falls on the shoulders of the 
Publications Board. Acting Dean of Men James 
Reid directly assisted the students in the pub- 
lication of the Terrapin and the Diamondback 
in the fall of this year; reassuming his other 
duties here on campus as Dean of Men, 
"Swede" Eppley then took over this respon- 
sibility. The board, during this school year, 
was composed of the editors of the Terrapin, 
Genie Simmons and Lucille Stewart; the edi- 
tors of the Diamondback, Ann Troxell and 
Ray Hesse; President Dee Speed of Pi Delta 
Epsilon, honorary journalism fraternity; the 
chairman of the Student Board, Leslie Daly; 
the president of Women's League, Betty Jack- 
son; Dean Adele H. Stamp; and Dr. Charles 
E. White. The board meets occasionally to dis- 
cuss informally the problem of appointment to 
responsible positions of the various publica- 
tions. They also formulate the policy of the 
newspaper and yearbook, which in turn re- 
flects the policy of the University itself. The 
board serves in an advisory capacity to the 



students and has helped the various publica- 
tions through many difficult situations. 

During the war period the board worked 
under a considerable strain trying to get the 
necessary supplies to keep these publications 
going. Now that peace has come again, the 
student publications shall resume again the 
quality and quantity of former years. The 
board has done a great job in maintaining its 
high standards during such a stressful time. 

In addition to the staff of the various pub- 
lication, the responsibility of getting the 
printed issues into the hands of the students 
falls largely upon the shoulders of the printers 
and their staffs. The Diamondback staff would 
be lost without the assistance of Thomas Ang- 
lin of Anglin Brothers Printing Establishment; 
likewise the Terrapin staff depends greatly 
upon the assistance of Mr. Harry Lavelle and 
Mr. Carroll Hutton of the Thomsen-Ellis-Hutton 
Company. The Publications Board and the 
staffs are deeply indebted to these people and 
most appreciative of all they have done to 
make the campus publication possible during 
such a trying period.

The Terrapin is unique among campus pub- 
lications. It is the product of genius, some- 
times mad, sometimes misguided, hut never- 
theless genius. Our co-editors, "Lou" Stewart 
and Genie Simmons, had a busy year gathering 




Genie Simmons 
Co- Editor-in-Chief 

pictures and people with a will to work . Bettv 
Lee Saumenig dashed madly around campus 
with contracts and a mercenary look in her 
eye. Nancy Simmons followed the photog- 
rapher around lining up the necessary group 
pictures, while Lillian Johnson pounded out 
copy on her antique typewriter. Sports Editor 
Fred DeMarr hounded the Publications office 
for pictures of Maryland's athletic individuals 
in action. 

Although all yearbooks must contain essen- 
tially the same material, it is the hope of each 
editor and staff to produce a book as different 
as possible from any previously published. Fol- 
lowing this tradition, the staff presents several 
innovations. The book is written according to 
classes following a student from the rime he 



56 



matriculates until he walks across the plat- 
form to receive his diploma. 

All in all the staff has enjoyed working 
together; it has been a great experience. We 
have done our best to give you a yearbook that 
will bring back pleasant memories of the 1945- 
46 year you spent on the campus of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland.

Although the Diamondhtick was still unable 
to return to its pre-war status of a bi-weekly 
publication, the newspaper expanded by ap- 
pearing in six-page form several times during 
the year. A special issue was printed on gold 
paper and distributed to the alumni and the 
students comtnemorating the Homecoming 
week end in November. Christmas was also an 
occasion for additional pages. 

The Duimoiulhcick staff felt that this was a 
year of continued improvement and progress. 
Staff members will remember this year for the 
good fellowship existing among them and for 
the staff joke, "Tallyho the Fox."

After several weeks of hard work during the 
summer semester, the Preliminary on the ii)4) 
M Book was completed and ready for the 
printer. 

The staff was small in comparison to the 
previous year, hut it was well-manned. Ray 
Hesse held down the editor's job and was 
assisted by Sally Conlon, who reported on 
student activities, and Beverly Johnson as busi- 
ness manager. Jane Morgan did the copy for 
sororities; Frank Lisciotto, fraternities; Dottie 
Lyon, sports; and Pat Coyle, military. Doug 
Parkhurst made his contribution with his fine 
cartoons; and the talents of Jeannette Owen, 
'43 and Walter Kerwin, '41, were borrowed to 
round out the hook. 



The scene for the composition of the Fresh- 
man Bible was the Diainondbuck office. Everv 
day, Monday through Friday, passersby could 
hear the members of the staff picking at the 
tvpewriters. Consequently, copy for the book 
was completed in record breaking time; the 
book was printed, bound, and ready for dis- 
tribution ten days before the start of the tall 
term. 

The finished AI Book was bound in a black 
leather cover with its title and seal printed in 
gold. With well over a hundred pages, eight 
pictures, seven drawings, and a complete map 
of the campus, the n)4) M. Book prepared the 
freshmen for their life here on campus.

are the presidents and treasurers of the Men's 
Glee Club, the Women's Chorus, the Orches- 
tra, and the Clef and Key Club. 

Under the sponsorship of S.M.A.C., there 
were the many well remembered community 
sings which did so much to promote a feeling 
of unity and esprit de corps in the Maryland 
student body. Whether held out of doors in 
the natural amphitheater or in the Agriculture 
Auditorium, these variety shows were equally 
successful. Featured in the shows were many 
talented performers from Maryland's campus 
who received a whole-hearted welcome from 
the enthusiastic student body participating 
in the sings. Popular and patriotic songs, as 
well as the perennial favorites, directed by 
Professor Randall and seasoned with his nim- 
ble wit, filled the spring air and the venerable 
collegiate halls with warmth and harmony. 
Musical evenings such as "Maryland by Moon- 



light," and "Hour of Charm" featuring Mary- 
land's Women's Chorus, and an equally popu- 
lar concert by the men's choral group were 
planned and carried out with gratifying results. 
Contributing in large measure to their success 
was the orchestra composed of Maryland Stu- 
dents. 

Heading S.M.A.C. this year was Barbara 
Brown, with Randy Randall acting as treas- 
urer. Mr. Harland Randall is the faculty 
advisor to the group. Among the Marylanders 
who contributed their vocal and instrumental 
talents to the musical activities productions 
were Kent Kise, whose rendition of Day By 
Day provoked a sigh or two from the most 
unromantic listeners; Rosemary Gordon, 
whose husky tones met the audiences' hearty 
approval; Virginia Bradford and Dorothy 
Gooding, pianists; Par Brown, Maryland's 
flute virtuoso; Charlie Haslup, popular master 
of the keyboard; Lois Forrester and Eileen 
Simpson, vocalists; and a host of other talented 
Maryland students. Through the community 
sings and other musical programs, the S.M.A.C. 
kept a finger on the student pulse and gave the 
campus several evenings of fun.

Clef and Key, the campus musical variety 
organization, presented last November "Mon- 
otonee," a variety show for the benefit of the 
Community War Fund. Featured in the show 
were Jean Maul, Rosemary Gordon, Bill Whar- 
ton, Lois Forrester, El Tall, Rose Marie Kelley, 
Ricky Brendler, Meredith Schmidt, Ray Spes- 
sard, Ruth Trunnell, Eileen Simpson, Helen 
Giddings, Kathy Bailey, Mary Frances Hunter, 
Bill Kahler, Reggie Hall's orchestra, and Gil 
Bresnick as Master of Ceremonies. 

The 1945 V^arsity Show, "One Touch of 
Genius," written and directed by Jean Daly, 
was produced by Wanda Pelczar, then presi- 
sent of Clef and Key; it starred Wanda and 
Dick Gumpper in a comical history of the Uni- 
versity. 

This year, the organization presented its 
seventh annual Varsity Show, "Strictly from 
Hunger," written and directed by Jean Daly. 
The plav, concerning the return of the veter- 
ans to campus life, starred Eileen Simpson and 
Kent Kise, with Lois Forrester in the chief 
supporting singing role. Also featured in the 



cast were Rosemary Gordon, Dick Gumpper, 
Walter Beam, Sally Conlon, Connie Kranz, El 
Tall, Harry Elliott, RomanGeller,GoldieShall, 
Sid Sterman, Virginia Carpenter, Meredith 
Schmidt, Jackie Zelko, and Ray Spessard. Com- 
mittee chairmen included Dolly Wilhide and 
Edith Krenlich, stage crew; Ramona Randall 
and N'irginia Carpenter, publicity; Sally Con- 
lon, costumes; Marguerite Stitely, make-up; 
and, Mary Harry Davis, properties. The or- 
chestra was under the direction of Reggie Hall, 
and the entire show was supervised by Profes- 
sor Harlan Randall. Original music was 
composed by Marsh Stieding, Charlie Haslup, 
Vincent Bredice, William Moore, and George 
Aman. 

During the war Clef and Key "hit the 
rocks," and until 1945 the campus had not 




62 



been entertained by a Varsity Show since 
"Lick Mine Boots, Peasant." Therefore, this 
year marked the revival of one more of Mary- 
land's long-standing traditions. To those who 
had witnessed earlier varsity productions, this 
year's show brought back pleasant memories 
and gave promise of even better things to come 
m the post-war years. 

Clef and Key is exclusively a student organi- 



zation. Shows are written, produced, directed, 
and staged by members of the club, with 
faculty advice and supervision by Professor 
Randall of the Music Department. 

This year's officers were: Jean Daly, presi- 
dent; Dick Gumpper, vice-president; Dorothy 
Dansberger, corresponding secretary; Marguer- 
ite Stitely, recording secretary; Ramona Ran- 
dall, treasurer; and Joe Lucke, historian.

The Women's Chorus, composed of ninerv 
talented coeds, has been singing its way into 
the hearts of the Maryland students, Washing- 
tonians, and nearby servicemen for the past 
few years. 

Harlan "Doc" Randall, professor of music, 
served as the capable leader of this captivating 
group. Both in the fall and spring semesters 
the chorus sang to the men at Fort Meade and 
later had the pleasure of dancing with them. 
One night in November, despite sleet and a 
broken bus, the girls made their way to the 
auditorium of the Interstate Commerce Com- 
mission where they presented a delightful pro- 
gram. In March, they featured an "Hour of 
Charm" program in collaboration with a drive 
to raise funds for the National Symphony Or- 
chestra. It was a great success and has the 
earmarks of becoming another traditional cam- 
pus affair. In April, the girls were privileged 
to sing "The Lord's Prayer" with Mona 



Paulee, Metropolitan opera star, at a concert 
she gave in the Coliseum. The chorus, par- 
ticipating in the annual May Day Celebration, 
added much charm to that scenic background 
with their colorful gowns and mellowed 
voices. The big event of the season was the 
girls' third annual trip to the United States 
Navel Academy in Annapolis where they put 
on a highly successful program on the platform 
of Bancroft Hall. 

Their accompanists, Virginia Bradford and 
Dorothy Gooding, contributed a large part to 
the success of the year. Miss Bradford played 
some of her own compositions throughout the 
season. 

The chorus met twice each week for rehears- 
als, and the girls were most faithful in their 
attendance. Their officers were : Barbara Brown, 
president; Margaret Harryman, vice-president; 
Lois Forrester, secretary; Mary Harry Davis, 
treasurer; and Barton Hall, librarian.

After a long period of silence, the Men's Glee Club can again be heard 
singing its melodies into the hearts of the students. Under the able leadership 
of Harlan "Doc" Randall, professor of music, the Glee Club has grown in 
popularity and size. With more and more veterans returning to campus the 
club promises to become one of the outstanding campus groups.

Orchestra has played at many University functions throughout the year. At 
the June graduation, the orchestra played a major role; and, May Day would 
have been incomplete without its classical and semi-classical strains. The 
members have provided an invaluable service at the various functions on 
campus, including dramatic productions and teas.

Working with the speech department of the 
University of Maryland, the Footlight Club 
presented three plays during the 1945- 1946 
season. The initial production, presented in 
November for a four nights' running, was Noel 
Coward's Blithe Spirit, a delightful comedy 
ably directed by Dr. Charles Niemeyer. Sets 
for the play were designed by Dwight Thomas. 
Jacqueline Hastings, Dorothy Krehnbrink, and 
Roman Geller in the leading roles gave per- 
formances which ensured the study of a warm 
reception by Maryland audiences. 

From April -l-G, the club again made news 
on campus with its hilarious version of Hugh 
Herbert's Kiss iind Tell, directed bv Dr. Nie- 
meyer assisted by Rose Marie Kelley. The 
leading roles in the production were handled 
capably by Betty Gamble and Dorothy McCas- 
lin as Corliss Archer and Edward Muth as 
Dexter Franklin. An excellent supporting cast 
added their varied talents to the success of tlu 
play. 

Footlight members can look back on the 
past year with pride. The club progressed not 
only in its dramatic accomplishments but also 
in its organization and workmanship. Through 




Blythe Spirit returns.

And then there were tu 



the combined efforts of the club members, the 
University theater underwent many changes. 
A new ticket booth was added to the theatre 
lobby. To facilitate production, a general 
workroom for set-building was made available 
to the club; and new curtains, lights, and elec- 
trical equipment were added to the stage of the 
theater. 

Club membership qualifications were also re- 
vised at the beginning of the year. In the future. 



membership will be based upon participation 
in production, both in dramatic portrayals and 
backstage work. Any student in the University 
will be eligible for participation in Footlight 
Club productions. 

With the aid of its faculty advisor, Dr. Ray 
Ehrensberger, who has already contributed so 
much to the success of its activities, the Foot- 
light Club looks forward to a full reconversion 
to peacetime activities during the year ahead.

The Religious Life Committee is composed 
of faculty members who are interested in the 
spiritual outlook of the students as well as 
their social and mental attitudes. During the 
past year they have done much toward helping 
the veterans and other students to readjust 
themselves to this new era of peace. The com- 
mittee sponsored many highly successful ves- 
per and interdenominational services through- 
out the year. 

The committee meets monthly with repre- 
sentatives from each religious club. These 
meetings help to cement the feeling of toler- 
ance among the various religious clubs on cam- 
pus, and they aid in the invaluable exchange of 
worthwhile ideas.

The purpose of the Newman Club is to pro- 
vide a religious and social bond among the 
Catholic students of the University. On the 
first and third Wednesday of each month the 
group met in the Maryland Room. 

At the beginning of the year a new chap- 
lain, Father Hugh Radigan, O.F.M., of Holy 
Name College, replaced Father TerrenceKuehn, 
O.F.M., who left to become president of Terra 
Santo College in Jerusalem. 

With Frank Borges guiding the club the 
first semester and Vic Turyn serving as presi- 
dent the second semester, its numerous activi- 
ties were carried out. The choir of Holy Name 
College entertained the group with hymns and 
other musical selections. During the year a 
number of guest speakers appeared at the meet- 
ings. Lt. Edward Kirchner, U.S.N. , director 
of the North American Secretariat of Pax Ro- 



mana, explained the Newman Club's relation- 
ship to Pax Romana. Speaking at another 
meeting was Mr. Edward Tamm, assistant di- 
rector of the F.B.I. Representative Murphy of 
Pennsylvania gave some interesting sidelights 
in his address concerning the Pearl Harbor 
investigation. 

Under the direction of Lt. Sam Lander, 
U.S.N., a choir was organized and an organ 
obtained for the chapel. A Lenten retreat was 
held during March for the benefit of all Catho- 
lics on campus. In the spring the group visited 
the F.B.I, in Washington, D.C. Other trips 
were made to the Franciscan Monastery and 
other famous shrines. 

Available for Newman Club members and 
other Catholic students are many books of 
religious interest in the school library.

President Bobbe Burdette. A hockey tourna- 
ment started the year off with all the dormi- 
tories, sororities, and daydodgers participat-

Each team provided its own pingirl. The win- 
ner of the tournament. Kappa Delta, was

\vere played each day, and the girls with the 
University of Maryland basketball rating were 
kept busy; these girls also refereed games in 
high schools in this area. Volleyball, bad- 
minton, tennis, and table tennis tournaments 
were also played. Play days with colleges in 
this area were very popular, and the after 
dinner dances were enjoyed by everyone on 
campus.

The Independent Student Union is the out- 
growth of a long felt need for an organization 
interested in students unaffiliated with Greek 
letter societies. 

This year the I.S.U. started out with great 
enthusiasm, opening its "Welcome Party" to 
the whole campus. Acting as Master of Cere- 
monies was Midge Harryman, who led mix- 
ers, group singing, and contests between stu- 
dents and faculty members. Later all students 
turned out in plaid shirts and genes for the 
LS.U. Square Dance. At this frolicing affair 
Jean Lou Crossthwait, tri Delt, was crowned 



Diamondback Queen by Dr. Byrd. Christmas 
found the LS.U. members caroling up and 
down the hill. 

The second semester, with its increased male 
enrollment, brought new vigor to the organi- 
zation. In April another very successful Square 
Dance was held. In May the I.S.U. members 
took a boat trip to Mount Vernon.

period on campus. Meetings, held once a month, featured either a 
speaker from Washington, D.C., or a member of the faculty. The 
year was climaxed by the annual chemistry picnic.

Since the chaiTcr for the University of Mary-

was granted hv the Prince George's County 
chapter in 1944, the organization has progres- 
sed rapidly. This year, under the direction of 
Joyce Reside, the Red Cross Unit helped in the 
post-war activities of the national organiza- 
tion. 

The Canteen Corps visited Andrews Field 
monthly, serving doughnuts and coffee to the 



men; and, hospitalized veterans were enter- 
tained by programs sponsored by the Rehabili- 
tation Unit. The headquarters in Hyattsville 
received the services of the Staff Assistants one 
day a week; these workers had fulfilled specific 
requirements as outlined by the National Red 
Cross. It was the privilege of the Unit to play 
host to seven South Americans who were in 
this country studying the networks of the 
American Red Cross.

The Pan-Hellenic Council of the University 
continued its policy of promoting good fellow- 
ship among the sisters of the twelve sororities 
on campus. In order to discuss the many 
problems confronting the Greek organizations, 
the Council held monthly meetings at the 
various sorority houses. 

The Council served as a mediator during 
rushing, instituted new rushing rules, saw that 
these regulations were maintained, and sub- 
jected the offenders to specific penalties. 

Looking back over the fall rushing season, 
the Council feels that the pre-school rushing 
system proved to be a huge success. The girls, 
who were interested in joining a Greek letter 
social organization, returned to campus a week 
earlier than the others. Those seven days were 



crammed full of parties, teas, and other open- 
house functions. After these busy days and 
sleepless nights, the girls appeared at the Dean 
of Women's office to hand in their preference 
lists and later to get their bids. The Council 
feels that this new system did much in helping 
to ease the strain of previous years on both the 
sororities and the rushees who had to shoulder 
the responsibilities of classes and studies in 
the midst of these social functions. 

The Pan-Hellenic Council has instigated a 
Junior Pan-Hellenic Council which is com- 
posed of pledges of all the sororities. Instead 
of the usual pledge parties, this Junior Council 
sponsored a tea for the pledges of every so- 
rority, and it was a huge success.

September, 1945, found the Alpha Delta Pi's 
back at Maryland early to tie up any loose ends 
left from the summer's work of redecorating 
the house. Like the rest of the Maryland 
students, they looked forward to the initial 
year of the post-war era with confidence and 
anticipation. At the end of Rush Week, Alpha 
Delta Pi was proud to claim twenty-four new 
pledges as evidence of the enthusiasm and 
hard work that went into their many rush teas, 
desserts, and other social functions. 

By October the Beta Phi's were good for 
one more party, and it turned out to be the 




novel Red Sock Dance, at which everyone was 
brilliantly attired in a flashy pair of red sox. 
The moment anyone entered the house that 
evening, he was quietly relieved of his shoes 
and left to dance in his stocking feet. An 
hilarious time was had by all. 

The next morning many of the A.D. Pi's 
were up early to make the trip to Morgantown, 
West Virginia, to witness the Maryland-West 
Virginia football game, as guests of their sister 
chapter at the latter University. 

A tea for the parents of the Beta Phi members 
and pledges, and the annual pledge dance with 
Dick Betson's music makers, high-lighted the 
pre-holiday season. Both were unqualified suc- 
cesses. During the course of the year, a hearty 
welcome home was extended to the A.D. Pi's 
neighbors, the Phi Delts, with a dinner at the 
sorority house. 

Activities on the hill found A.D. Pi's presi- 
dent, Bobbie Burdette, also serving as president 
of W.R.A., and sister Kate Smith as treasurer of 
the same organization. Mim Drewyer and 
Mildred Preble read the minutes in I.R.C. and 
Spanish club respectively, while Ann Fennessey 
performed similar duties at the Riding Club. 
Other A.D. Pi's were active in Women's Cho- 
rus, Footlight Club, and numerous other ac- 
tivities.

The second year on campus for the Pi Phi's 
was a crowded one with wartime activities 
drawing to a close and a host of social events 
coming back into prominence. Climaxing the 
innumerable Rush Week teas, desserts, and 
other functions with the pledging of thirteen 
new Pi Phi's, the girls prepared to launch 
their fall social season. Shortly after the close 
of Rush Week, an open-house tea was held in 
honor of Mrs. R. C. Wakefield, province presi- 
dent of the sorority. Homecoming, an open- 
house dance, and initiation followed in rapid 
order. 

In between sessions of bridge and Chinese 
rummy, the Pi Phi's let loose with a few snow- 
ball battles, exchange dinners, and a Hallow- 
een party where the pledges kept the actives 
running till three a.m. Wartime activities, 
however, were not forgotten with the close of 



hostilities. A number of the Pi Phi's still 
acted as hostesses at various canteens, enter- 
tained convalescents, and sold innumerable 
war bonds. The Army Air Forces provided 
several interesting movies on rehabilitation 
for returning soldiers. These were shown at 
the house with the Kappa's as guests of the 
sorority. 

Among those trudging up the hill to meet- 
ings were Marjorie Frederick as Secretary of 
Sigma Tau Epsilon, honorary women's recrea- 
tion association, Secretary of Women's League, 
and Secretary of Newman club; Bobbie Brown 
and Barton Hall as President and Librarian, 
respectively, of Women's Chorus; and Carolyn 
Buck to Omicron Nu, honorary home eco- 
nomics' fraternity. Jackie Hastings found time 
to play a lead in the Footlight presentation of 
"Blvthc Spirit." Janice Garrott was president

of Margaret Brent dormitory, while publica- 
tions held the interest of Ethel Jongeneel and 
Jean Smith. 

The new year opened with twenty-nine girls 
wearing the arrow of Pi Beta Phi and thirteen 
wearing the pledge pin. Between those first 
weeks of rushing and the final closing of the 
year in early June, the Pi Phi memory book 
records many good times and good friends 
and a year of fun and work for all concerned.

The Kappa's started the post-war period 
with high hopes and plenty of activity. Dances 
activities, and the traditional bridge games 
crowded the calendar. 

The social season opened with an informal 
tea to welcome the new chapter of Delta Gamma . 
To initiate the football season, the Kappa's 
held open house for all fraternities and so- 
rorities and followed the Homecoming game 
with a tea for Kappa Kappa Gamma alumnae. 
Highlight of the spring season was the Spinster 
Skip. Highly successful also was the formal 
Kappa pledge dance. Throughout the year 
various fraternities were invited over tor after- 
dinner coffee. 

Active in campus publications were Genie

in 1945 



In June of 1945 a pledge pin new to the 
campus, a white shield with gold lettering, 
was presented to twenty girls at Maryland. 
On October 13, 1945, these girls exchanged 
their pledge pins for golden anchors and be- 
came members of a newly installed Delta 
Gamma chapter. Beta Sigma. 

On moving into the former Sigma Nu house 
last fall, the girls were delighted by their new 
furnishings upstairs and down, freshly painted 
walls, and softly carpeted floors. During the 
summer the Delta Gamma alumnae, under the 
leadership of Dr. Cormelia Cotton, had super- 
vised the complete redecoration of the house 
in a modern manner. Added to the original 
group were Grace Barricklow, Delta Gamma 
Field Secretary, and Jane Ellsworth, a Deegee 
transfer from the University of Oregon. After 
completing a successful rush week, the girls 
began preparing for the day when Beta Sigma 
would be given its charter; and, they, the 
initiates, would receive their pins. 





The day of initiation arrived at last, and 
Delta Gamma's national officers arrived to 
take charge of the proceedings. They were 
also present for the round of social activities 
which followed. The new members were 
feted at a formal banquet at the Statler, another 
banquet given by President Byrd at the Hotel 
2.400, and at receptions and teas given for the 
new initiates and by the DeeGee members 
themselves. 

At the end of this social whirl, the girls were 
so used to being busy that they found no 
trouble in turning their attentions and energies 
from social to academic and extra-curricular 
activities. Dorothy Dansbergcr acted as cor- 
responding secretary of Clef and Key, and 
Emily Hamon attended Alpha Lambda Delta 
meetings. Marie Bulani, another Clef and Key 
member, and Jo HofFmeister sang in Women's 
Chorus. Bunnv Holland was treasurer of the 
Newman Club, and the Canterbury Club mem- 
bers chose Libby Graham to act as recording 
secretarv. Efhe Ingalls could have been seen on 



104 



Thursday afternoons hurrying to her duties as 
hostess at the Stage Door Canteen in Wash- 
ington, and Pat Koehler put in many patriotic 
hours as a member of the Red Cross Canteen 
Corps. All of the girls assisted in furthering 
the success of Delta Gamma's national project 
of aiding the blind. 

First DeeGee to be married was Sidney 
Nimmo, who became Mrs. Brown the day 
before she was initiated. 

Yes, the Delta Gamma's, under the guiding 
hand of Jane Schreiber, have become firmly 
anchored in the life and activities of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. During their initial year 
on campus, they have more than justified the 
warm welcome which the new sorority re- 
ceived back in '45. With their enthusiasm for 
University activities and cooperation with 
other groups, the DeeGee's give promise of 
being a vital force in campus life.

The White House on the Hill was whiter 
still and all ready to be lived in as vacationing 
Gamma Phi's returned in October to their 
newlv redecorated dwelling-place. 

Socially the girls were off to a gay start 
with an old-fashioned hayride that resulted in 
fun and frolic for everybody. November ii, 
Founders' Day, was celebrated with a formal 
sorority banquet. A round of teas and dances 
followed, including the Pledge Dance and Par- 
ents' Tea. 

Many Gamma Phis were active in campus 
organizations. Marty Hughes succeeded 
Wanda Pelczar as president of Mortar Board, 
with Joyce Reside holding the pen in the same 
organization. In Red Cross work Joyce was 
president with Betty Jenkins assisting her as

the same organization. Ginny was also Cir-

December Marty was tapped for Phi Kappa 
Phi, scholastic honorarv, and elected president 
of Pi Delta Epsilon, journalism honorary. At 
the helm in International Relations Club was 
Randy Randall, who also held the treasurer- 
ship of the Spanish Club and Clef and Key.

Another year of living and working to- 
gether in their temporary home, the A.T.O. 
house, was successfully embarked upon by a 
full house of Sigma Kappa's who returned to 
the Maryland campus last October. Paint 
brushes, soap and water, brooms, and elbow 
grease were prevalent for the hrst few days. 
Due to the fact that the A.T.O. 's were plan- 
ning to reoccupy their house in the spring, the 
Sigma Kappa's planned some redecoration of 
their own house. The many social functions 
given by the sorority testify to the good use 
which the girls made of their attractive home. 

Starting with an open house tea, the so- 
rority continued throughout the year to hold 
formal and informal gatherings, such as pa- 
jama parries, informal teas, and dances. The 
annual Christmas formal proved to be one of 
the year's highlights. 




At Homecoming the girls collaborated on a 
float with the Phi Delt's in which their theme, 
"World of Tomorrow," received third place. 
They also won third place for house decora- 
tions during Homecoming. 

Founder's Day was celebrated by the Mary- 
land chapter and the Washington chapter with 
a banquet in Washington. 

Between classes and in their spare time the 
girls were preoccupied with bridge games or 
holding their usual after-dinner jam sessions. 

Many outstanding achievements were made 
on campus this year by the Sigma Kappa's. 
Peggy Morrissey acted as president of the 
French Club and Laura Petrone as secretary of 
the Canterbury Club. Dona McCoy was pub- 
licity agent of the German Club, and Miriom 
Turner, president of Junior Pan-Hel. Patricia 
Bush drew innumerable posters; and, the music 
department was taken care ot by Cordelia 
Alden, Marilyn Bcissig, Ray Armstrong, Ethel 
Niblett, Janet Turner, Miriom Turner, Marv 
Lou Obald, and Harriet W'avinan in the

dcnr of the Footlight Club and president of 
Alpha Psi Omega. 

The annual Spring Formal furnished a grand 
finale to the Delta social calendar. 



The Tri Delts began the school year with a 
full social calendar. In November they cele- 
brated Founder's Day with a banquet at the 
Hotel 1400. During the fall jean Lou Cros- 
thwait was crowned "Diamondback Queen." 
Pledge Eileen Simpson was chosen "Victory 
Queen" by the returned veterans. At Home- 
coming the Delta's won the Homecoming cup 
for the most novel house decorations. In 
December the traditional Tri Delt pledge dance 
was held. Paper sky, clouds, and stars carried 
out the theme of heaven. In April it was like 
old times to see the fraternities represented 
again in Tri Delts' annual Interfraternity Sing. 

Tri Delta athletes received the Sigma Kappa 
trophy for intramural sports. For outstanding 
contributions to interfaith understanding, Jerry 
Pficffer was awarded the Interfaith Fellowship 
Award. Jerry also attained membership in 
Mortar Board, as did Dickie Richards and 
Janet Griffith. Dottie Hargrove received the 
Borden Scholarship Award for the highest 
scholastic standing in the College of Agri- 
culture. Page Watson won the Tri Delt 
Scholarship Award. Marty Grill, the former

Although \'-J Day brought an end to World 
War II, the Beta Eta's continued to support 
such emergency activites as the Red Cross, the 
Communitv War Fund, \'ictory Loan Drive, 
Merchant Marine Library Fund, and the World 
Student Fund. 

The chapter was also well represented in 
campus activities. Kathlyn Bailey was elected 
secretary-treasurer of the Student Board and 
was a member of Clef and Key. Marguerite 
Stitely also served on Student Board and was 
secretary of Clef and Key. Both Kathy and 
"Weetie" were chosen to appear in Who' s Who 
in American Colleges. Frances Ellsworth was 
elected vice-president of the junior class, and 




Sallee Davis acted as secretary of the Dance 
Club. Peggy Maxwell and Bettv Root were 
tapped tor Omicron Nu, and Pat Spellacy 
became secretary of Sigma Alpha Omicron. 
Jane Musgrove, a freshman, became president 
of the Cosmopolitan Club. Pledge Peggy 
Chrisman had an article appear in the magazine 
Seventeen. Jackie Richards represented the Uni- 
versity and the Women's Physical Education 
Department on the cover of Parade, a magazine 
section appearing with Sunday newspapers 
throughout the country. 

High-lighting the social calendar were the 
informal "Golden Quill" partv, the formal 
Christmas dance, mtcrsorority bridge parties 
and desserts, and a formal tea in honor of the 
patrons and patronesses of the chapter. 

Of the five Alpha Xi's married during the

in 1924 



A.O.Pi started its social reconversion with a 
bang-up annual open house of pre-war variety. 
As in past years, the dance was an overwhelm- 
ing success. Revival of A. O. Pi's traditional 
red and white ball gave another sign of the 
return to normality on campus. 

The "red rose," adorned with a generous 
helping of A.O.Pi pulchritude, appeared in a 
portrayal of World Peace during the Home- 
coming day float parade. In spite of stiff 
competition, it unanimt)usly took hrst honors. 
The University was honored by the presence of 
General and Mrs. George C. Marshall among 
the judges. 

Jeanne Bennett was gavel swinger for the 
year and secretary of the senior class. Kitty 
"versatile" Briggs was president of the Wesley 




Club, vice-president of the Sociology Club, and 
vice-president of the sorority. Phyllis Sell 
served as secretary of the junior class and 
treasurer of A.O.Pi. Omicron Nu tapped 
A. O. Pi's secretary, Lois Reed, and she reaped 
further honors by being initiated into Phi 
Kappa Phi. 

The pledge class showed its appreciation by 
giving a traditional dance for the actives in 
January. Babs Schneider started out on the 
right foot as treasurer of the freshman class 
and Rose Marie Kelly tackled the tough job of 
being president of her section of Calvert Hall. 
Another dorm president was Dotty McClean 
of dorm 4F. Dotty was also vice-president of 
the Physical Education Club. 

Post-war plans were carried out by several 
A. O. Pi's in regard to matrimony. Muriel 
Rothman said "1 do" to Lt. Fred Houghton, 
Jan Jordan to Lt. Ivan Oberhellman, and Gloria 
Eisele to Lt. Ralph E. McQuillin. Polly 
Sellars became Lowell Pratt's "Missus," and 
Joy McFarlanc's marriage to Major James J. 
McFarland was quite a sorority affair as sev- 
eral "sisters" preceded her up the aisle as 
bridesmaids.

Donning blue jeans topped by brilliant plaid 
shirts and wielding huge paintbrushes, the 
girls of Alpha Mu transformed the formerly 
masculine retreat of Sigma Chi into a feminine 
bower of powder blue and misty pink adorned 
with ruffles and floral trims. A housewarming 
tea was enriched by the presence of twenty- 
two new pledges, visible evidence of an enor- 
mously successful rushing season. 

Gay orange and black Halloween ornaments 
decorated the house for the first dance of the 
season in honor of the pledges. Phyllis Rosen 
presided as pledge queen. Highlight of the 
social calendar was the dance in honor of the 
graduating seniors in January, which topped 
an exciting week end of parties and a visit from 
A. E. Phi's province director, Judy Mann. 

This year saw Jean Yalom installed into 
Phi Kappa Phi, senior scholarship honorary, 
and Marilyn Miller tapped by Alpha Lambda 
Delta, freshman honorary society. Helene 
Aaronson was Pan-Hellenic Secretary. Feme 
Kandel became editor of the Sociology Club 
paper, while Beverly Brody served as vice- 
president of the French Club. Tema Goldiner 
recorded history for the Footlight Club. Viv- 
ienne Rose, who succeeded Hannah Seidel in 
February as Alpha Mu's president, was li- 
brarian of the Footlight Club and was re-elected 
treasurer of the Dance Club. 

Cupid's arrow hit often in tlie A.F.Phi liouse 



this year with the marriages of Rhona Benesch 
to Harry Cohen; Hannah Needle to Ben Seidel; 
Anita Reiskin to Ben Rubin, Estelle 'Wolowitz, 
former president of Alpha Psi Omega and of 
the newly formed alumnae organization, to Dr. 
Irving Jacobs. 

Feme Kandel became engaged to Fred Kol- 
odner, Dorothv Rovener to Mendel Friedman, 
Sonia Friedman to Robert Hallock, Helene 
Aaronson to Major Frank Rich, and Elaine 
Ogus to Lieutenant Robert Tepper. Newest 
heartthrob was Richard Lee Begun, son of 
Evelyne Bressler Begun, A.E.Phi alumna. 

As the girls of Alpha Mu looked back on the 
past year of college life, they saw accumulated 
memories of laughter and comradeship which

EstrtWislieJ at tlic UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1936 



Along with the rest of the world. Phi Sigma 
Sigma went all out for reconversion this year. 
The seniors were thrilled and just a little 
nostalgic, while the underclassmen were awed 
by campus life in normal times. 

Before the year was over, the girls were pre- 
facing remarks about canteens and service clubs 
with "remember when." Even so, they still 
put in their hours driving for the Red Cross 
and entertaining at Walter Reed. With cars 
parked in the driveway and nylons back in 
circulation, Maryland became more interesting 
every day. Returning fiances and husbands 




claimed several of the girls, while the alumni 
secretary was kept busy sending out pledge 
pins to new-born Phi Sig's. 

The toil and planning and the fun of rushing 
were well rewarded by the wonderful group of 
girls who were pledged. All nineteen made 
their Phi Sig debut at a successful open house 
dance. Several other open house affairs plus a 
few dances, informal and formal, during the 
year, made the group's social life very inter- 
esting. Homecoming became even more mem- 
orable than the girls had expected when their 
"graveyard" won them second prize for house 
decorations. Highlight of the year was the 
tenth anniversary week end in May, held in 
collaboration with most of the alums. 

The annual dessert and bridge for the house- 
mothers was even more enjoyable than in past 
years. Exchange dinners, campus parties, 
Mothers' Club meetings, and Founder's Day 
added to an ever crowded social calendar. 

However, all was nor plav for the Beta 
Alphas this year. The chapter participated in 
rhc raising of a fund for victims ot riieuniatic 
fever, the sororitv's national project. 

Tuesdays and Wednesdays found the house 
practically deserted when the girls turned out 
for the Women'sChorus, Diatnondhack, W.R.A., 
Hillel, Riding, Sociology, Dance, and Inter- 
national Relations ( lubs.

The Intcrfratcrnity Council, an organization 
which fosters better relationships between the 
fraternities on campus and the administration, 
is regaining its rightful prestige after a natural 
war-time lag. The Council meets twice a 
month to formulate plans for its social and 
athletic activities, and to regulate men's rush- 
ing functions. 

The Council began the fall semester with 
its iirst full formal rushing schedule since 
before the war. Officers elected for that sc-

Gruber, Phi Delta Theta, secretary; and Dick 
Bozman, Phi Delta Theta, treasurer. It was 
this executive board that fostered the new 
improved rushing procedure, believed by the 
councilmen to be foolproof. 

The Council was active in all sports events 
as it operated as a division of the Intermural 
Association. Socially, the members had a busy 
time. The Council resumed its regular rotary 
dances among the fraternities; but the climax 
of the season was the winter formal, held at 
the Indian Springs Country Club. This dance 
was hailed by many as the most successful 
dance of the semester given by any organi- 
zation. 



A committee headed by Charley Phillips, 
Phi Delta Theta, was appointed by the presi- 
dent to revise the point system for the Inter- 
fraternity Council Activities Cup. This cup, 
which is traditionally awarded at the spring 
formal, was not in rotation during the war. 
It was last awarded to Sigma Nu. 

The Council started the spring semester by 
reelecting Mike Zetts as president. Other 
officers were: Roger Cohill, Alpha Tau Omega, 
vice-president; Allyn Lehman, Kappa Alpha, 
secretary; and Dick Bozman, Phi Delta Theta, 
treasurer. With these officers the Council had a 
very successful spring semester climaxed by an 
Interfraternity picnic.

in 1930 



Occupying their spacious brick home on 
College Avenue after an absence of two years, 
the men of Phi Delta Theta bounced back into 
prominence with twelve active members and 
twenty-hve pledges. Some of the brothers were 
missing, though: Edwin Lentz walked to the 
altar with Ginny Reid, A.O.Pi; Dick Terry 
withdrew from school; Stanley Roth entered 
the Army; Jack Frost joined the Merchant 
Marine; and, Bob Bates left Maryland to enter 
St. Lawrence University in New York. Don- 
ning campus clothes and exchanging materials 
of war for textbooks. Bill Lane returned from 
the Merchant Marine; Buzz Sewell, Dick 
Lodge, and George Barnes from the Army Air 
Corps; and, Charley Phillips from Navy Pre- 




Flight training. Returning from last year were 
Dick Bozman, Chuck Ryan, Bill Grubcr, Emorv 
A. Harman, Dawson Jarboe, Leland Cook, and 
Harold Donofrio. 

The first month was a gala one for the 
Flyers. Dick Bozman, as president, saw to it 
that the house jumped to countless rushing 
affairs and activities. Open house functions 
were started once again and became a great 
success. Orchids were in order for the return- 
ing veterans who distinguished themselves in 
the service. Buzz Sewell and Dick Lodge 
blasted Hitler from their flying fortresses and 
bombers; George Barnes starred not only in 
campaigns over the fields and mountains of 
Italy, but also in the Spaghetti Bowl football 
game; Bill Lane conveyed precious goods and 
materials all over the world, while Chuck 
Phillips served valiantly in Navy Pre-Flight. 

All over the campus the impact of Phi Delta 
Theta's return to active status was distinctly 
felt as Emory A. Harman, secretary of the 
fraternity, was appointed social chairman of 
the Student Board. Emorv did a line job in 
producing the i94<i Homecoming Dance, which 
was one of the greatest in the history ot the 
University, and also several regular Saturday 
night informals. Dick Bozman took in the 
monev and balanced the budget vi\. the Inter- 



124 



fraternity Council as Bill Gruber recorded the 
minutes. Dauntless Hal Donofrio headed the 
annual Tug of War between freshmen and 
sophomores; Dick Lodge, Charley Phillips, 
and Dauntless Don served on the ticket com- 
mittee for the Homecoming Dance; and, George 
Barnes returned to the Varsity football eleven. 
Yes, the Phi Delts are on their way. Present 
plans include an increased membership and 
outstanding social events for the coming years. 
Always present, too, will be a continued striv- 
ing for the achievement of the true meaning 
of the word "fraternity," a real spirit of 
brotherhood.

quickly regained normality at the end of the 
war. They now total twenty-two brothers and 
sixteen pledges. At the beginning of the fall 
semester, there were only four actives left from 
the previous year; however, this situation was 
quickly changed by the initiation of fifteen 
new pledges and the return of many veterans. 
The brothers moved into their house on Knox 
Road in February and have been busy ever 
since renovating it inside and out; President 
Harold Thomas and House-manager Pete Def- 



fert, former Naval Air Corps "Ace," have 
been bossing the job. 

Phi Kappa Sigma was very active in campus 
activities. Pete Bozick served the campus as 
manager of the Maryland Lacrosse team and 
president of the Rossborough Club. \'ictor 
Mullins managed the basketball team, while 
Jim Murray took care of the football team; 
Brother Bill Jameson assisted Pete Bozick with 
the Lacrosse team. The Jazz Five, local band 
sensation, was featured every Wednesday eve- 
ning at the after-dinner dances and other cam- 




126 



pus affairs; this band was made up almost 
entirely of Phi Kap's with Brother Cal Hub- 
bard starring on the drums, Brother Frank Bull 
at the piano, and Brother Dick Ruby on the 
bass fiddle. Brothers Ruby, Hubbard, and 
Bozick are members of Clef and Key, an hon- 
orary musical group on campus. The chapter's 
scholastic average was held up by Walter 
Beam and Henry Howden. "Walt" was ac- 
cepted into Tau Beta Pi, honorary engineering 
fraternity; and Henry was tapped by Phi Kappa 
Phi, scholastic honorary, and Omicron Delta 
Kappa, honorary leadership fraternity. Brother 
Beam also played a leading part in the Varsity 
Show. Brother Henry Fontana had a very busy 
spring semester managing the softball team. 
The Phi Kap's sponsored many social func- 
tions during the year. These included their 
traditional "Skull and Bones" dance, several 
picnics, and informal dances and parties. 

Members: Peter A. Bozick, Charles De Phillips, Henry 
Fontana, Henry Howden, \'ictor Mullin, HaroldThomas.

Wearers of the White Cross were prexicd 
bv Brother Leon Etzler, who was ably assisted 
by Paul Wilson, proconsul, John Newman, 
secretary, John Maslin, treasurer, and Seth 
Preece, magister. After a torrid summer, they 
started the new semester determined to surpass 
their achievements of previous years. 

Since the Sigs were no longer in possession 
of their house on Norwich Road, the fraternity 
started the semester with nine stalwart mem- 
bers, one pledge, and no house. Utterly undis- 
mayed, however, the brothers plunged into 
rushing and came up with twenty-four men. 
All went well under the benign rule of Pledge 
Master Collinson, and twenty new members 
made the fraternity feel more like its old pre- 
war self again. 

Relighting the old smoking lamp at Al- 
brecht's, the brothers quickly bounced back 
into the swing of social events on the hill. 
Among their many to be remembered social 
affairs was the annual Sweetheart Dance, with 
K.D. Mary Esther Hines elected to the envious 



position of "Sweetheart of Sigma Chi." This 
event was preceded and followed by rfiany 
similarly successful social events. 

As for their candidates for B.M.O.C., the 
Sigma Chi's point with pride to Fred Safford, 
who ably piloted the senior class to successful 
graduation day, while Fred DeMarr followed 
in his footsteps as vice-president of the fresh- 
man class. Johnny Newman did his hit for the 
boys as social chairman of the senior class, 
and Jim Edwards deserves a cheer as the first 
male member on the cheering squad in a long 
time. 

Nor have the Sigs neglected the athletic side 
of campus life. Jack Heise took over the man- 
agement of the basketball team with George 




128 



Gardineer, Charlie Marsteller, and Neal Hering 
as scrubs. Letterman Les Smith cut another 
notch in his gun by earning another letter on 
the gridiron. Brother Burnside helped the 
Maryland cause in track at the Southern Con- 
ference. 

The year has also been a prominent one in 
the love life of many of the Sigma Chis . Broth- 
ers Cullom and Carter were rudely ejected by 
the coeds when they tried to visit their old 
haunt in Calvert. Brother Page Chesser, Junior 
Prom chairman, took the occasion of that 
dance to announce his intention to wed and did 
it a week later. Many others among the 
brothers are no longer sporting their pins. 

Thus, ever advancing the old standards of 
fraternalism for which its stands, Sigma Chi 
has moved forward to the close of a busy, suc- 
cessful year. Previously undaunted by the 
stress and manpower shortage of wartime and 
showing a surprising ability to become part 
of campus life, Sigma Chi fraternity looks 
forward to a shining, peace-time era.

Estafclislied at tite UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1943 



After a summer of Ocean City sunburns and 
defense jobs, the members of Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon started the fall semester under the 
gavel of Pat Coyle. 

Highlighting their fall social calendar were 
several postgame dances and a most successful 
Homecoming buffet supper. At the end of the 
semester the S.A.E.'s were seen moving into 
their new home behind the men's dormitories. 
Among the returning veterans who had a hard 
time fmding their new abode were Proudley, 
Bohn, Stringer, Graham, Parsons, Johnson, 
and Clem. 

Besides making many changes and additions 
to their new home, the brothers had a busy 
spring semester under their newly-elected presi- 
dent, Jet Tether. They sponsored the ever- 
successful Founder's Day Banquet in Wash- 
ington, D.C., which was attended by hundreds; 
but the crowning event was the Winter Formal, 
an annual affair which has taken its place as 
one of the social highlights on campus. 

Always active in sports, the S.A.E's proudly 
boasted of three men on the Varsity Eleven: 
Robert Crosland, Richard Johnston, and Walter 
Bauman. The other brothers likewise partici- 
pated in many intermural games on campus and 
produced a winning basketball team. 

In order to uphold their reputation for leader- 
ship in campus organizations, the S.A.E.'s 



were not only active in many clubs but held 
numerous offices. Willie Schmidt was vice- 
president of Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary jour- 
nalistic fraternity, and chairman of Interfrat 
Sports ; Frank Borges presided over the Newman 
Club and sputtered Dutch as vice-president of 
the German Club; Sports Editor Byrd Lucas 
was assisted on the Diamondback by Reporter 
Hodge and Cameraman Madison; and the musi- 
cal brother, "Gump," served as vice-president 
of the Clef and Key and the Men's Glee Club. 

The boys were sorry to see "Colonel " Boyle 
close his illustrious military career here as 
captain of the R.O.T.C. and Student Band, but 
they were proud to find him nominated to the 
Who' s Who Of American Colleges and Universities. 

Looking back through the year, it is easy 
to note the huge strides the S.A.E.'s have made 




130 



during this their first peace-time year on cam- 
pus; they have made themselves an organiza- 
tion that Maryland is proud to have on cam- 
pus. The brothers claim that much of the 
credit for their success should go to Dr. Carrol 
E. Cox, who gave them considerate, friendly 
guidance as their faculty advisor.

With the return of many brothers from the 
service, the Theta Chi's began to approach 
their pre-war standards. Boasting thirty-six 
members and fifteen pledges, they took an 
active part in campus life and affairs. 

The fall semester saw eight of the Theta Chi 
members and pledges on the football squad, 
with many playing first string. Under the 
leadership of Dick Spencer as president, a full 
social season was enjoyed. A series of exchange 
dinners with the various sororities was started 
and proved to be very popular. The Theta 
Chi's were known for their participation in 
campus activities, both socially and scholasti-

cally. In November, Bill Eckhardt was elected 
president of the sophomore class. Home- 
coming brought the float and house decoration 
which were absent the past few years. The 
annual Christmas Formal successfully brought 
1945 to a close. 

Early in January eleven new members were 
added to Theta Chi, increasing the number of 
actives by almost fifty per cent. Between se- 
mesters the entire inside of their house was 
done over, and for the hrst time in over two 
years the house was filled solely with Theta 
Chi's. 

During the last week of February a new 
group of pledges was chosen after two weeks 
of rushing. A great number of exservicemen 
were numbered in this group. This pledge class 
will long be remembered by the Theta Chi's; 
among the pledges was ' 'Dixie' ' Walker, whose 
untimely death shocked the entire campus. 
Several of the members served as pall-bearers 
and later journeyed to his home in Ohio. 
"Dixie" was initiated postliumously, and a 
plaque has been erected at the Chapter house 
ill his honor. 

Under the leadership of the newly elected 
Jack Bucklcv. the spring semester was high- 
lighted by a semi-formal dance tlie last of 
March and the traditional Spring Formal at 



132 



the end of the semester. Other functions in- 
cluded several informal record dances, and a 
treasure hunt, the pledge banquet, card parties, 
and the annual Founder's Day dinner in April. 
June saw the graduation of Tom Graham 
and Bill Talbott into the fields of psychology 
and engineering respectively, while the other 
actives began a long awaited vacation. Thus 
the Theta Chi's completed another year, a 
year characterized by many and varied changes. 
With their membership increased by veterans 
of matured understandings and definite goals, 
they are insured of an organization that will 
match and outmatch those of former years.

Proudly inhabiting the stately white-col- 
umned colonial mansion on College Avenue, 
the boys of Alpha Tau Omega have brought 
another "gone, but not forgotten" year to a 
close. 

It was a year marked by the meritorious 
achievements of the brothers in their many 
lines of endeavor, especially those famous par- 
ties which their return to their house made 
possible. Highlighting these parties was the 
successful reinstitution of the Interfraternity 
Rotary Dances which followed the return to 
their house in February. Another long to be 
remembered event was the week-end house 
warming party given by the pledges to wel- 
come all returning veterans. All are agreed 
that the house was enjoyably "warmed" and 
that this marked the return of the A.T.O.'s to a 
full and active campus life. 

Fraternity elections saw Jerry Cleaver hand 
the gavel over to Roger Cohill; Ray Hesse was 
elected vice-president; Frank Licciotto, secre- 



tary; Dick Mclnncs, treasurer and arm-twister; 
and Chuck Beebe, pledge master. Rog Cohill 
and Sam Allen w^ere welcomed back from the 
Army and Navy Air Corps, respectively, to 
start another school year with the Epsilon 
Gamma Chapter of Alpha Tau Omega. 

Nineteen pledges received words of welcome 
and wisdom at the pledge banquet from faculty 
brothers "Doc" White, Pete Getty, Paul 
Walker, and Harry Rice. Pledging was aided 
by the alumni and A.O.Pi sorority, who gave 
rush parties in honor of the brothers. 

For the Homecoming parade of floats, the 
brothers joined Alpha Xi Delta sorority to 
build a "World of Tomorrow" float represent- 
ing the Old Liners of tomorrow daydodging 
in an Ercoup. Second place honors were shared 
with the Alpha Xi's. Old familiar faces seen 
enjoying the Homecoming party included 
Tommy Mullens, Major Bossy Mishtowt, Lt. 
Clif Eisele, and Fred Johnson. 

Pledges Jack Clark and Bob Kambies, living

up to the leadership traditions and ideals of 
A.T.O., accepted the responsibility of steering 
the freshman class through that hard first year 
as president and sergeant-at-arms. Ray Hesse 
was elected president of the junior class, and 
Jerry Cleaver was elected vice-president of the 
senior class. Other brothers occupying posi- 
tions of prominence in campus life were Jack 
MacVeigh, vice-chairmanof the Student Board, 
Hugh Ross, captain of the band; Rog Cohill, 
vice-president of the Interfraternity Council;

EstaWshcA at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1914 



Sigma Nu, retaining its active status during 
the hard days of the war, has pushed always 
forward toward those ideals for which the 
white star has ever stood. They were aided 
in this endeavor by those members returning 
to college life after serving in the various 
branches of the armed service. Among those 
brothers welcomed back this year were Kenny 
Bransdorf, J. C. Shields, Dick Hoddinott, Brian 
Fcnnell, Warren Hoffecker, Herb Hardin, Ed 
Hurson, Henry Sunier, Jack Gilmore, Danny 
Boothe, Bill Ellet, Hal Berry, Tommy Jones, 
and Jack Flynn. These men swelled the mem- 
bership of the Delta Phi Chapter of Sigma Nu 
to twenty actives and lifteen pledges. 

The pledges and the actives were steered 




through the hazardous waters by prexy Mike 
Zetts, Vice-President Tom Chisari, Recorder 
Marty Wolfe, Treasurer "Muscles" Mussel- 
man, Sergeant-at-Arms Johnny O'Connor, and 
Chaplain Les Daly. With this experienced aid, 
the life of a pledge created respect and esteem 
for the white star of Sigma Nu. 

Always active in athletics, the Sigma Nu's 
received the Interfrat touch-football crown as 
they came through this season undefeated. 
They bowed, however, to the Veteran's Club 
in the championship game under the arcs of 
Byrd Statium; there the Vets eked out a 6-0 
victory in a close battle all the way. The 
varsity sports were well represented by Sigma 
Nu. Football claimed Tom Chisari, Les Daly, 
Harry Bonk, Roy Morter, Scoop Evans, 
Tommy Gibbons, Johnny Hughes, Emile Fritz, 
and Vic Turyn. Jack Flynn was reelected cap- 
tain t)f the basketball team and proved his 
indispensibility with his "dead eye" on the 
hard shots; pledges Joe Baumann, Johnny 
Hughes, and Vic Turyn rendered able assist- 
ance on the squad. Another indispensible man 
in University sports was Tom Devlin, who was 
noted for his track work on the 1940-41 team. 

Sigma Nu was well represented also in many 
organizations on the hill. Les Daly and "Gig" 
Flynn served as chairman and vice-chairman 
of the Student Government Association, re- 



136 



spectively. Bill HofF was reelected president 
of the Veteran's Club, while pledge Tom Dev- 
lin served as treasurer. Mike Zetts had a busy 
time as president of the Interfraternity Council, 
the Riding Club, and the "M" Club. 

However, the Sigma Nu's have not been 
neglectful in their study of "Sociology. ' ' They 
presented their annual Sadie Hawkin's Dance, 
which was enjoyed by each Daisy Mae and her 
Li'l Abner, who suffered manfully with his 
onion corsage. Other offerings in this line 
were the "Pirate Ball," the Spring Formal, 
and many other outstanding social events. 

Although Sigma Nu is without a house at 
present, they have a chapter room at the home 
of Mr. and Mrs. Holbrook, whose three sons 
each wear the pin of Sigma Nu.

BETA KAPPA CHAPTER 
Founded at WASHINGTON AND LEE UNIVERSITY 

in 1865 
EstahUshed at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1914 



At the close of school last year, Kappa 
Alpha's membership was already beginning to 
dwindle under the everpresent threatening 
finger of the draft board. So many of the 
brothers had exchanged their collegiate clothes 
for those of the Armed Forces and had laid 
down their books and picked up a gun that 
at the beginning of the fall semester only two 
actives remained, Billy Greer and Wally Mann. 
However, with the return of Erny Eckels and 
Johnny Cochrane from service the chapter 
slowly regained its strength and status. Before 
the formal rushing season the fraternity had 




only one remaining pledge, Ray Richards; but, 
at this time four new pledges were given the 
K.A. pledge pin to wear. 

Despite such a small membership. Kappa 
Alpha had two actives and a pledge on the 
football team and another active on the boxing 
team; these boys maintained the former K.A. 
reputation of contributing good men to varsity 
teams. 

With a characteristically busy social cal- 
endar, the fraternity held many formal and 
informal rushing functions, a large number of 
highly successful dances including the Christ- 
mas Formal, and a hayride in the spring se- 
mester. 

February not only marked the beginning of 
the spring semester, but it also witnessed the 
return of eight more Kappa Alpha's from 
service. These boys started to make plans for 
taking over their house in the coming fall and 
making next year equal to those of the pre- 
ceding pre-war period. 

In intramural sports Kappa Alpha had a 
basketball team and a softball team which 
provided a lot of competition for the other 
fraternities. 

Being very active socially and having the 
reputation of an unselfish spirit, Billy Greer and 
Al Lehman gave up their pins to two very 
winsome lasses. 

The brothers were also very active in student 



138 



organizations. Bob Forsberg and Al Lehman 
held down the offices of treasurer and secretary 
respectively in the Veterans' Club, while Billy 
Greer served as vice-president of the sophomore 
class. Al Lehman had enough time to serve 
Kappa Alpha efficiently as president and to 
make Phi Eta Sigma, engineering honorary; 
that is a record that anyone would have a 
hard time beating. 

Although the chapter started out very limi- 
ted in membership and much hampered by the 
lack of a fraternity house, the brothers have 
truly accomplished a great deal in bringing 
the fraternity back to pre-war conditions. With 
more and more brothers being released from 
active service, the fraternity hopes to regain 
and even supersede its pre-war status. 

The 1945-46 year was one of advancement; 
the 1946-47 year will also be marked by the 
huge strides the brothers will make in the 
social, athletic, and scholastic fields on the 
Maryland campus.

ALPHA SIGMA CHAPTER

EstabUsHei at tJie UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1924 



At the beginning of the school year, the 
eight brothers of Delta Sigma Phi combined 
their efforts to make their chapter expand in 
membership and pledged many new pledges. 
These pledges were allowed under fraternity 
rules to elect their own officers, who assisted 




the brothers in pledge instruction. They were 
initiated into the brotherhood on December 
15, 1945. The men pledged were as follows: 
Anthony Meushaw, social chairman; Milton 
Sappe, the piano player; Robert Wheeler, lA 
in the draft; William Callaway, known as 
"colonel" among the boys; Edgar Moore, next 
year's fraternity food advisor; Robert Shipley, 
expert rifleman; William Poling, ace of the 
football field; Donald Gleasner, Maryland's 
three letter man; John Schrecongost, a Bryant 
center; Donald Turner, aide to Ed Moore; 
George Clendaniel, the student; Theodore Krug 
and Richard Holzaphel, the boys with a car; 
Walter Fehr, the only father; Bill Brown, an 
ace on a baseball diamond; David Clawson, 
the good R.O.T.C. handman; and Frank Dou- 
vercs, a Navy man. 

The original eight members have nor drop- 
ped by the wayside. Carl Bell is acting as 
treasurer; Edmund Besche is chaplain; Thomas 
Johnson is vice-president; Andrew McCauley, 
secretary; Charles ProfFen, former-president; 
Gordon Gauinnit/, former-president of the 
Duke chapter; James Spamcr, former-president; 
and William Steele, president. 



140 



From the very beginning of the school year, 
the boys had hopes of moving back into their 
house; they started the year out by doing 
some work inside and outside every week end, 
and they are hoping to have things ready for 
occupation by July. 

Since "all work and no play makes Jack a 
dull boy," the boys have succeeded in having 
a full social season this year. Dances were 
held at the chapter house on Friday nights 
during the fall and spring. Their spring formal 
at the Washington Aviation Country Club 
was a grand finale to a big social season. 

The boys as a whole answered to the plea of

ALPHA THETA CHAPTER 

FoMttdeJ flt OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 

in 1908 

Esta\}\is]xei at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1928 



With the return of pre-war conditions and an 
enlarged membership the brothers of Alpha 
Gamma Rho fraternity had a very successful 
year on the Maryland campus. The fraternity 
was represented by its members in almost every 
organization on campus; this record will be- 
come even greater as more and more boys 
return from service. 

At the beginning of the fall semester the boys 
pledged eleven more members from various 
parts of the state. These pledges were enter- 
tained royally by many formal and informal 
rush functions. With Bill Taylor as pledge 
master, they received their proper training 



from a boy who went through it all himself 
once. 

Realizing that they were hampered by the 
lack of a fraternity house, the brothers began 
making plans for reoccupying their old house, 
which was rented to the Pi Beta Phi sorority 
during the war. 

Despite this handicap, however, the Alpha 
Gamma Rho's did not want for social enter- 
tainment during the year. During the latter 
part of the spring semester, Alpha Gamma Rho 
and Pi Beta Phi held a joint dance at their 
house. In April they sponsored a very suc- 
cessful spring formal with manv alumni mem- 




142 



bers in attendance; a great time was truly had 
by all. From time to time radio dances were 
held at the house in collaboration with the Pi 
Phi's. 

The greatest story of the year concerned the 
fall weenie roast; Fred "I am a Virginia boy" 
Hutchison ate ten hot dogs and drank in- 
numerable bottles of soft drinks. 

J. Maguire Mattingly, the Alpha Gamma 
Rho president, was awarded a sweater and the 
letter "M" for expert shooting on the Varsity 
Rifle team; Pledge Walter Bowling also re- 
ceived the same awards, establishing quite a 
reputation for the fraternity as a whole. 

Harold Thompson not only lost his fra- 
ternity pin during the year, but he also walked 
down the aisle to exchange vow^s with a win- 
some lass in June. 

This year was truly one that will long be 
remembered by the boys; it was full of fun 
and gayety, and yet it took a lot of hard work 
to retain the status the fraternity had before 
the boys left to win the war. The campus is 
glad to welcome the boys back and is expect- 
ing big things from the fraternity as a whole 
in the future.

EstflH.sJ.ea flt the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1934 



Lambda Chi Alpha returned to the campus 
last September after a two years' absence while 
the boys went out to light a war, abandoning 
their books and campus clothes. Duke Kaz- 
lauskas was the first member around in the 
fall, and the initial thing that he did was to 
seek brothers, who might also have strayed 
back to the campus. He found Ralph Gies, a 




student from the Eastern Shore, and the two 
began to work as a club. They pledged and 
initiated Harry Potts, a Florida lad, and then 
there were three. 

When the second semester began, among the 
returning veterans the boys saw Joe Chilson, 
Frank Seward, Barney Balch, and Nick Fotos. 
Then there were seven. The struggles experi- 
enced during the fall term were soon forgotten, 
and the club operated in a grander scale, plan- 
ning bigger and better affairs and functions. 
Duke in some unknown way kept on being 
president and appointed Barney Balch social 
chairman, and the Lambda Chi's started to 
gain prominence in campus activities. 

The boys kept up their tradition of holding 
the first spring formal of the season, and a 
grand time was had bv all members, pledges, 
alumni, and their quests. 

With Brother Gies as chairman of tiie com- 
mittees, plans were formulated to drop in on 
the folks at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W. 
Washington, D.C., where Brother Harry Tru- 
man from tile Missouri chapter lias a lease 
until January, 1949. 

The men, in spite of increased social activi- 
ties and the necessary evil of studying, kept up 
a busy rushing campaign and pledged Charley 



144 



Thompson, "Top" Hancock, "Tinker" Chance 
and Gene Olmstead. 

Brother Chilson took over the chapter pub- 
lication and managed to put out two interest- 
ing issues during the spring term with the aid 
of Johnny Fales, the graduate advisor. A lot 
of thanks, gratitude, and appreciation are 
owed to Johnny. Brother Steward spent his 
early Saturday mornings and almost every 
day with his dogs, making up for the social 
life that he missed during the war; he even 
went, occasionally, to meeting. Nick Fotos 
kept everybody happy in Annapolis by taking 
occasional week-end trips there, forsaking the 
Maryland campus, books, women, and slide 
rule. Of Harry Potts we are not sure; the last 
we saw of him he was trying to straighten out 
the monthly financial report of last March. 

It's been a long, hard way back from the 
fall of '41, when the club started out with 
thirty members and ended up the year with 
only one surviving the call to arms. Ten more 
of these boys are due back in September; and 
with a house in their future postwar plans. 
Lambda Chi should soon be back at the top 
as a leading group on the Maryland campus.

Led by Prior Austin Oppcnhcim and later 
by Dick London, the men of Sigma Alpha Mu 
experienced another very successful season in 
all fields of endeavor. 

Socially, the highlights of the year were un- 
doubtedly the formal dances held in Baltimore, 
which were sponsored by the Alumni Club 
there. In addition, the outstanding spring 
week end and the numerous smaller dances and 
parties will long be remembered. 

Ranking first among eleven fraternities was 
the crowning glory to S.A.M.'s scholastic ef- 
forts. Individual honors go to Jay Bisgyer who 
attained the memorable position of president 
of the freshman honorary scholastic fraternitv. 

Sparked by Captain Howard Smith and 
"Flash" Bill Leizman, who made the all-star 




team, S.A.M. played second in the struggle for 
the football crown. While not quite as suc- 
cessful in the other sports, the lads of Sigma 
Alpha Mu nevertheless entered a team in every 
interfraternity competition. 

Captain Howard Rymland led the S.A.M. 
contingent in the R.O.T.C. while Norm Katz 
became Sports Editor of the Diatnondback and 
Publicity Chairman of the Student Religious 
Life Committee. Aside from the men in the 
Veteran's Club, the fraternitv was well repre- 
sented in other fields of extra-curricular activi- 
ties: Dick London, Sam Wohl, and Norm Katz 
in the Glee Club; Austin Oppenheim on the 
Interfaith Committee of Hillel; and, Eugene 
Fink and others out for lacrosse. 

The house, with the addition of some new 
furnishings, was well filled by the returned 
veterans; but the spirit of the men of Sigma 
Alpha Mu was dampened when they received 
word that two brothers would never return : 
Lr. Bill Birmbaum and Ensign Stanley Mann. 

Two mergers with A.E.Phi and one with Phi 
Sig were accomplished within the past year. 
Irv Jacobs and Mort Sarubin walked up the 
aisle with local lasses, while Captain Irv Rea- 
mer travelled to Washington University to lind 
his spouse. 

With Rolf Bcrcowitz as treasurer and Norm 



146 



Katz as recorder, Sigma Alpha Mu looks for- 
ward to an even more successful season next 
year.

TAU BETA CHAPTER

EstabhsJteJ at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1925 



The 1945-46 school year blossomed forth 
with a promise of a bright future for the Tau 
Beta Chapter of Tau Epsilon Phi; the returning 
veterans had brought that needed punch to the 
fraternity as well as to other campus organiza- 
tions. Such men as Robert Bacharach, Irwin 
Noble, Louis Pressman, Murray Leisman, 
Arthur Epstein, Earle Wolfe, Howard Shear, 
and Charlie Kramer all helped by adding their 
hard won experiences to the working of the 
fraternity. With a newly decorated house and 
with new furniture, the brothers really began 
to realize that peace once more prevailed and 
the typical collegiate spirit had returned to 
campus. 

In the realm of sports Bob Lewis was sprint 




man on the track st]uad, and from all reports 
he is mighty hard to beat on a tennis court; 
Foggy Noble and Harvey Morganstein were 
track managers; Sid Sterman continued to ex- 
change blows in the boxing ring; and, Marvin 
Boss starred on the lacrosse team. The thespian 
was Erwin Hoffman, who played a convincing 
role as the father in "'Kiss and Tell." Close 
behind Irv was Sid Sterman who played a 
much different role in "Strictly from Hunger." 
Sidney Galler of the Zoology Department and 
Albert Aaron of the Physics Department were 
included on the faculty list. 

In February the undergraduates, as well as 
the Alumni, participated in theirfirst "Jubilee" 
since 1940 at the Southern Hotel in Baltimore. 
It was a great get-together for both voung and 
old. 

Men who were elected as officers for the 
spring semester were; Robert Bacharach, chan- 
cellor; Fred Sappersticn, vice-chancellor; Rob- 
ert Eichberg, scribe; Howard Shear, burser; 
Louis Pressman, warden; Irwin Noble, stew- 
ard; and. Sylvan Freeman, historian. A spirit 
was backing these men that gave the T.E.P.'s 
a real lift and a bright outlook for the future. 

The varied group ot pledges included: 
Charlie Kramer, K\ Fried, Marvin Boss, Louis 
Ruttenberg, Jake Milliman, Herbert White, 



148 




Len Grossman, AI Gordon, Jerry Gotkin, and 
Frank Hirsch. 

A tremendous spring formal, which was held 
in Washington, D.C., brought the T.E.P.'s 
highly successful social season to a close. With 
few exceptions all the men who left school to 
enter the armed forces were in attendance; it 
resulted in a reunion that will long be remem- 
bered by the boys. 

The 1945-46 year has been the beginning 
of a new era and one of the outstanding years 
in the history of the fraternity. With many 
more veterans returning in the fall, the fra- 
ternity is looking forward to next year as its 
greatest year on the Maryland campus.

Each yearOmicron Delta Kappa, men's hon- 
orary, taps those junior and senior men who 
have been most outstanding in scholastic and 
social activities on campus. Membership in 
O.D.K. is one of the highest honors that can 
be awarded a college man. 

Five indispensable qualifications for member- 
ship in O.D.K. are character, leadership, fel- 
lowship, scholarship, and adherence to demo- 
cratic ideals. Character is the first and chief 
consideration for membership. Secondly, the 
candidate must excel in one of the five follow- 
ing phases of college life: scholarship; ath- 



letics; social and religious affairs; publications; 
or speech, music, and dramatics. Finally, the 
O.D.K. must rank scholastically among the 
upper thirty-five per cent of the men students 
in his college. 

At an informal tapping held in January, 
Henry Howden, Edward Zeigler, and Ray 
Hesse were initiated. Until this initiation. 
Bob Spence was the only student member of 
O.D.K. on the campus. The four active faculty 
members are Professor Russel B. Allen, Dr. 
Ronald Bamford, Dean James H. Reid, and Dr. 
Charles E. White.

Mortar Board pin is the highest recognition a 
woman student may achieve in her four years 
on the Maryland campus. 

In addition to being an honorary, Mortar 
Board is also a service organization. Activities 
for the year included participating in freshman 
orientation week, selling corsages at Home- 
coming, selling tickets and ushering at con- 
certs, cooperating withW.R.A. in the weekly 
after-dinner dance, giving a Smarty Party for 
eligible tappees, and sponsoring a Career Day

in existence. It was later broadened into a 
national honor association. 

Furthering the fulfillment of its motto, "the 
love of learning rules the world, " the organi- 
zation encourages scholarship and character by 
offering membership to seniors who rank in 
the upper ten per cent of their respective col- 
leges. It has given recognition to more than 
eight hundred Maryland students since its 
founding at the University in June, 192.0.

men students in their freshman year, requires 
for entrance an average of VS '" "^h^' '^''^t 
semester or in both semesters of the freshman 
year. 

Although the war has curtailed the activi- 
ties of the society, its members have tried to 
carry on as a functioning organization and have 
endeavored to keep in contact with its members 
now in the armed forces. With Bernard Lu- 
barsky as president and Edward Zeigler as 
secretary-treasurer, the honorary has struggled 
through the year with an extremely small 
membership. Because of such a decrease in 
membership, much of the burden of keeping the 
organization active has fallen upon the shoul- 
ders of Mr. C^arl Hintz, the facuitv advisor. 

Ed Zeigler left the University in January; 
but, while he was on campus, he served as 



president of the Lutheran Club. He was 
elected to O.D.K. and Phi Kappa Phi, in addi- 
tion to many engineering honoraries and so- 
cieties. Bernard Lubarsky, who graduates this 
June, has also been very active in campus 
activities on Engineering Hill and was secre- 
tary to Tau Beta Pi. Irving Kuzminsky, who 
took Ed Zeigler's position of secretary-treas- 
urer, was drafted in February; this left AUyn 
Lehman, second semester president, to carry 
on with the help of Mr. Hintz. 

With normal times returning to the L'ni-

again to build uji its membership and regain 
its place as the leading freshman honorary on

Establisltci at tKe UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1928 



Alpha Chi Sigma was established at the 
University of Wisconsin in i90i; the Alpha 
Rho chapter was established at the University 
of Maryland in 1917. It is a professional chem- 
ical and chemical engineering fraternity whose 
objectives are "to bind its members in a tie of 
true and lasting friendship, to strive for the 
advancement of chemistry both as a science 
and a profession, and to aid its members by 
every honorable means in the attainment of 
their ambitions as chemists throughout their 
mortal lives." 

Although the war seriously curtailed the 
number of its members, the fraternal spirit 
was ever-present; the chapter remained active 
throughout the war, as several of its members 
were engaged in war research here on campus. 
Now that peace-time conditions have returned 
and have brought back many of its former 
members, the chapter is looking forward to 
future years of even greater achievement along 
scientific lines. 

The big activities of the year included sev- 
eral picnics, a tri-chapter Founder's Day Ban- 



quet and tri-chapter initiation; the Alpha Pi 
Chapter at George Washington University and 
the Washington Professional Chapter combined 
with the Maryland chapter for the latter two 
events. The organization also sponsored a series 
of talks by various members of the faculty 
whose interests were in fields other than 
chemistry. 

This national fraternity sponsors the Ameri- 
can Chemical Society Award in pure chem- 
istry. Here at the University the Alpha Rho 
chapter gives a year's membership to the Ameri- 
can Chemical Society to the graduating senior 
who has the highest scholastic average in 
chemistry.

in 1932 



As an honorary bacteriological society, Sig- 
ma Alpha Omicron has established itself on the 
Maryland campus as an incentive and oppor- 
tunity for those whose field of interest lies in 
bacteriology. The principal aim of the society 
is to maintain and cultivate an interest in the 
profession through a close and happy associa- 
tion with the Department of Bacteriology 
itself; through this well-knit relationship, S. A. 
O. entertains the privilege of sending forth 
from Maryland competent and enthusiastic 
bacteriologists. 

This year Sigma Alpha Omicron has estab- 
lished the precedent of forming a pledge class 
which is composed of bacteriology majors who 
are interested in learning the future of their 
chosen profession. This knowledge is obtained 
through enlightening lectures delivered by out- 
standing, well-informed men in the field of 
bacteriology. 

In line with the physical improvements in 



the department, S.A.O. has started to furnish 
a room which will serve as a meeting place 
for majors. As an annual enterprise, the mem- 
bers publish a Newsletter which reviews the 
work of both S.A.O. and the department. At 
the end of the school year, the most outstand- 
ing student in bacteriology is selected by the 
society and his name is inscribed on a plaque 
containing the names of such students from

The recognition of outstanding achievement 
on campus publications and the promotion of 
high standards of collegiate journalism are the 
chief aims of Pi Delta Epsilon, national jour- 
nalism honorary. 

To be tapped for Pi Delt, a student must 
have completed at least one year's work on a 
University publication holding a major posi- 
tion on either the business or the editorial 
staff. Each spring the fraternity holds a Pub- 
lications Banquet in honor of the students 
retiring from the various editorial positions, 
the climax of which is the announcement of 
the editors for the coming year and the tapping 
for Pi Delta Epsilon. 



Pi Delt's program for the future includes the 
installation of more journalism courses, the 
granting of academic credit for work in a major 
position on the Diamondback or Terrapin, and 
the sponsoring of a Journalism Day for high 
school journalists throughout the State.

Honorary ^omcn'i Rcc»-cflt»on Associutioii 

FoHndcii at tJie UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

in 1940 



Sigma Tau Epsilon, the women's honorary 
recreation association, was established on the 
campus of the University of Maryhind in 1940 
under the guidance of Miss Gwendolyn Drew, 
a former member of the Women's Physical 
Education Department. 

Since its establishment, Sigma Tau Epsilon 
has worked in coordination with the Women's 
Recreation Association in sponsoring intra- 
mural sports. This year they held after-dinner 
dances, and basketball, badminton, bowling, 
tennis, and softball tournaments were spon- 
sored. 

Founded to encourage leadership, good sports- 
manship, and to stimulate participation in 
recreational activities, Sigma Tau Epsilon is 
the highest honor one may achieve in the 
Women's Recreational Association. 

Requirements for membership are good sports- 
manship, leadership, voluntary participation 



in W.R.A., outstanding service in the lield 
of women's sports, and an all-time scholastic 
average of 1.5. Members must be upperclass- 
nicn. 

Tapping took place at the annual W.R.A. 
banquet in the spring. The Sigma Tau Epsilon 
trophy was also presented at this banquet to 
the winner of the girls' intramural basketball 
tournament. The annual basketball gathering 
was held for the alumnae and undergraduates; 
and, the annual newspaper. The Chatter, was 
distributed to the alumnae. 

Officers for the year were: Betty Jackson, 
president; Jean Burnside, vice-president; Louisa 
White, secretary; and Jerry Pfeiffer, treasurer. 
Dr. Rachel J. Benton served as faculty advisor 
throughout the year. 

Other members were: Roberta Burdette, Ma- 
jorie Frederick, Janet Griffith, and Ruth B.

Initiation into Omicron Nu, Home Eco-

honor a girl in the College of Home Economics 
can receive. With the recognition and pro- 
motion of scholarship, leadership, and research 
in the field of home economics as its goal, the 
society carefully selects its members. The 
chapter taps fifteen per cent of the girls having 
senior rating and five per cent having junior 
rating for membership in the organization. 

Early in November initiation was held for 
the new members, and Omicron Nu activities 
for the year began. In December an apron sale 
and fruit cake raffle were held. An educational 
field trip to the Bureau of Home Economics in 
Bcltsville was planned for January. March 



brought an "In Like a Lion, Out Like a

Dr. Rachel Benton 



Women's intramurals arc directed by the 
Women's Recreation Association under the 
sponsorship of the Department of Physical 
Education for Women. With the cooperation 
of daydodgers, dormitory and sorority girls, 
recreational activities continued to flourish 
on the campus. A complete and well-rounded 
program of athletic activities were presented 
for the Maryland coeds, and all the familiar 
sports featured were enthusiastically accepted 
by the girls. 

Each sport is managed by a different member 
of the Women's Recreation Association board 
and her assistant. A sports representative from 
each house of residence cooperates with the 
manager in organizing and carrying through 



tournament competition in all sports. 

Fall activities included hockey, inter-house 
bowling, and soccer. During the winter season 
inter-house and inter-class basketball was of- 
fered. The spring quarter presented inter-house 
volleyball and individual competition in arch- 
ery, tennis, and badminton. 

For the 1945-46 season the teams that came 
out on top in basketball ranked as follows: 
Sigma Kappa, Calvert, and Tri Delt; and in 
bowling: Kappa Delta, Anna Arundel, Mar- 
garet Brent, and Alpha Delta Pi. In the 1945 
spring volleyball tournament Alpha Delta Pi 
won the championship. 

The extramural competition was in the form 
of a Sports Day of varied events.

During the latter part of the year the Army 
authorized the activation of the Advanced

Infantry and Signal Corps Units were author- 
ized also; but, because of the small number of 
eligible applicants, the Advanced Course will 
not start until September, 1946.

(^OVe Band 



Maryland's R.O.T.C. Band provides much 
more than justmarchingmusicfortheR.O.T.C; 
it also furnishes a musical outlet for talented 
students. The Military Department, being 
very exacting in its musical taste, demanded 
much more work than the usual four drill 
hours; and, its members worked very hard. 

The band's performances were not limited to 
military functions; its notes were heard at all 
Maryland football games in College Park and 
Washington. At the basketball-boxing double- 
headers in the winter, the band also helped the 
student body present Maryland songs. In addi- 
tion to playing at the games, the band provided 
the musical background for the now famous 



tapping ceremonies of Omicron Delta Kappa, 
honorary leadership fraternity. Decoration 
Day and Maryland Day ceremonies would 
have been lost without the band's support. 

Maryland's band impressed everyone with 
its precision and fine playing, and much credit 
goes to Sgt. Otto Seibeneichen for his patience 
and leadership. In 1943 the present uniform 
of the band members appeared, a black and 
orange fourragere. 

Maryland's Student Band was more than a 
meager collection of inexperienced, uninspired 
horn-blowers and drum-thumpers. It was a 
well-organized, well-led unit which served the 
school in many ways.

Wc need look no farther than Maryland's 
1945 schedule to find the utmost in football 
thrills. It all began in September when an- 
nouncement was made of the acquisition of 
former Navy Pre-flight coach, Paul Bryant, 
and his staff. Such men as Joe Drach, Gene 
Kinney, Ed Schwarz, and Francis Evans, who 
followed Bryant to Maryland, joined with 
lettermen of the 1944 season and returning 
servicemen to begin a spirited season which 
brought one of the most favorable terminations 
in the University's history. 

Before September was over, the Old Line 
squad made an auspicious debut by crushing 
Guilford College with a score of 60-6. With 
their spirits high, the team prepared to rout 



the University of Richmond and did so to the 
tune of ii-o. This, the Terp's second victory, 
again saw Harry Bonk and Bill Poling as star 
scorers. 

October ii was test and proof of Maryland 
grid might, as they gave the previously un- 
defeated United States Merchant Marine Aca- 
demy a set-back. Bobby Piker set the scoring 
pace with two touchdowns, with 11-6 as the 
final score. 

Hopes of a perfect schedule were lost when at 
Blacksburg, Virginia, V.P.I, scored an eight 
point victory over our Alma Mater. The 
winners plaved hard and well against the Old 
Liners, who definitely were not up to their 
best that day. An anxious crowd at Morgan- 



174 



town tensely witnessed W.Va. tie the score at 
13-13. Bill Poling was the actual point-maker 
on all occasions, with Bob Crosland, Sam Behr, 
and, again, Harry Bonk in the limelight. A 
third disappointment came on November 3 as 
fans observed a 33-14 slaughter handed us by 
William and Mary College. The Liners' able 
performance seemed to warrant a different sit- 
uation that day; but, fate ruled against us, 
and the Indians scored once on a fumble and 
again on a blocked punt. It was in this contest, 
however, that the crowd first viewed the 
Poling-to-Gleasner pass which proved so spec- 
tacular in later events. 

None other than General Marshall, Chief of 
Staff, turned up to behold Maryland's over- 
throw of V.M.I, on Homecoming day. Our 
squad jumped back into Southern Conference 
contention as they outplayed the Lexington 
men, concluding with an important 38-0 vic- 



tory. This was, indeed, a happy ending to the 
Terp's losing streak. Maryland's impenetrable 
forward wall brought the opponents' running 
attacks almost to a complete standstill. Joe 
Pietrowski was the day's star, with Bonk, 
Gleasner, Behr, Piker, and Greer also pounding 
their way into the end zone for the count. 

"The game of the year" took place in 
Griffith Stadium on the cold afternoon of 
November Z4. The University of Virginia, 
previously undefeated and untied, sank to low 
ebbs after their trouncing by the University of 
Maryland. The black and gold eleven reached 
unexpected football heights in front of spec- 
tators filled with excitement, wonder, and 
admiration. Passing, which was supposed to 
cut the throats of the Terps when administered 
by Virginia, only proved fatal to the latter 
when put into practice by the Terps them- 
selves. Threatening the Virginia men through-

out the tilt. It was Red Poling's pass, in the 
final minute of play, received by End Don 
Gleasner, that put the Marylanders on 
the victorious side. Another great factor in 
the win was the sensational 90-yard run by 
Sam Behr. It was a day to order for the 
Terps. 

As an anti-climax, our gridmen triumphed 
over the University of South Carolina, 19-13, 
on the first day of December. Center Jerry 
Barkalow blocked a kick which ultimately

led to a score by Bonk, with Ed Schwartz 
making the extra point. Bob Crosland, on an 
intercepted pass, went over the goal line, as 
did Behr in the third quarter. Thus, the Mary- 
land football team ended a successful year in a 
height of glory. 

In January a note of disappointment was 
evident, in many as it became known that 
Coach Bryant and his staff had resigned to 
accept a position at another university; how- 
ever, the students were cheered when H. C.

Spring practice began early in March with an 
abundance of familiar faces on the field. The 
team will miss such notables as Don Gleasner, 
George Barnes, and Tom Chisari, but will 
certainly welcome Vic Turyn, Pat McCarthy, 
John Schrecongost, and others. With all these 
men and a lot of school spirit, the Terp 1946 
football record should equal, if not surpass, 
the victories of the 1945 season.

This year saw the beginning of Coach Bur- 
ton Shipley's twenty fourth season as basket- 
ball and baseball coach at the University of 
Maryland. He had high hopes of producing 
a championship team after looking over the 
prospective players. The Old Line five had 
difficulties getting settled and underway; this 
was evident as the Old Liners dropped six out 
of their first nine games. During this time, 
the former gridiron men, Don Gleasner, Vic 
Turyn, Bill Poling, and Pete Pinocci, reached 
their best form, and, with the help of two GI's, 
Bill Brown and Johnny Edwards, the team 
started going places. 

The Old Liners' luck began when they met 
Duke and upset the previously unbeaten Blue 
Devils with a score of 43-38. It was here when 



the Gleasner, Edwards, Pinocci, Brown, Turyn 
combination really began to click in grand 
stvle. Maryland's quintet rolled up six vic- 
tories our of the next seven contests scheduled. 
Their only defeat at this time was at the hands 
of the North Carolina University powerhouse 
with a score of 33-3 i . This tilt was one of the 
most exciting events ever witnessed at College 
Park. 

After this series of wins Bill Brown became 
ill and Johnny Edwards was added to the sick 
list with a sprained ankle. These two players 
had to remain on the bench and were a loss 
to the team for the rest of the season. 

Despite this fact, the Old Liners met one of 
the nation's top quints. West Virginia, and

at the last minute with a 35-33 score. It was 
at this time that some notable plays were 
executed by "Red" Poling and Bill Elias. 

After losing Jack Flynn, an ace marksman 
for two previous seasons, a weak, yet un- 
daunted, team was sent on their last trip to 
meet Army and Kings Point. Army defeated 
the Old Liners 52.-2.5, and the Kings Pointers 
downed the quint 48-31 in an effort to make up 
for their earlier defeat. 

When they were really clicking, the Old 
Liners were labeled as good "dark horse" 
possibilities for winning the Southern Con- 
ference Tourney; however, in the conference 
meet, North Carolina ran over a weak Mary- 
land team with a score of 54-2.7. 

Although the Old Liners went down in 
defeat, a season of thrills was provided for the 
many fans who witnessed the tilts.

Coach Miller 



With Colonel Harvey L. "Heinie" Miller 
back at the helm after five years service in the 
Marines, Maryland Mittmen were once again 
under the leadership of an able coach who 
produced two Southern Conference champion- 
ship teams. 

On hand for training were Ken Malone, Jose 
Fossas, Bill Filbert, and Bill Greer, all veterans 
of last year's squad. Lou Brown, a war veteran 
of the i9th Division who was the middle- 
weight champ of that organization, Dave 
Mills, an ex-sailor heavyweight, Jose Carro, 
from Puerto Rico, and Phil Rogers, a 117 
pounder, were among the prospectives who 
turned out for training. 

A tough schedule consisting of only two 
non-service teams faced the squad at the begin- 
ning of the season. The Terps made their 
debut at Virginia and were defeated by the

experienced Cavalier squad 5-3. 

In January, Maryland met Army on home 
ground. Phil Rogers and the famed duet of 
Maloney and Malone staggered their opponents 
and brought victory. Bobby Dobbs hammered 
a win over Dave Mills and returned a 5-3 
decision. 

Tommy Maloney suffered his only defeat 
of the season at the hands of Stan Wheatley, 
Kings Pointer, and a final 4^-3 >2 count was 
received. Maryland racked up a 5-3 count over 
South Carolina; this was followed closely by 
victory over Kings Point. After that the hope- 
ful Old Liners were subdued again by Army 
and the Coast Guard. 

The final match was held at Catholic Uni- 
versity. The 5-3 victory seemed futile when 
Maryland learned of the tragic death of Dixon 
Walker, who was knocked out in the first 
round of the 165 pound bout.

f 926 -f 946 

The University of Maryland has suffered a great loss in the untimely 
death of James Dixon Walker at the close of the boxing season. Al- 
though he had been here at the University for only a short time, 
"Dixie" had won the esteem of those with whom he had come in 
contact. He was a fine athlete and teammate and always held true to 
the Maryland spirit. His absence has been felt by all. 

It is to him who shall never again don the Black and Gold, that we 
dedicate this portion of the Terrapin.

In the fall of 1945, the first track squad that 
Maryland has had since 1943 turned out for 
practice. Along with the return of track came 
some of Maryland's leading track men. Colo- 
nel Geary F. "Swede" Eppley once again 
resumed his position as head coach after serv- 
ing in the Army. He received as his assistant 
Captain Jim Kehoe, former track ace, who also 
was released from the Army. 

During February the University of Maryland 
sent seven men to the Southern Invitation Meet 
at Chapel Hill, N.C. Ed Matthews broke the 
tape in the 440 while Tom Devlin placed sec- 
ond. In the field events Jim Kurz took third 
in the shot; and, the relay combination of 
Mathews, Devlin, Price, and Smit topped off 
the Maryland victories by capturing the mile 
relay. 

The Old Liners met their opponents in nine 



spring events. From the showing that has 
been made this season, Maryland may once 
again have the outstanding team that was 
theirs in the past years.
