BOB WARD— THE TERPS' FIRST ALL-AMERICA
It is only appropriate that Bob Ward, the first All-America football
player at the University of Maryland should be placed on our cover, peen
on the gridiron before 43,836 fans in Byrd Stadium where he distin-
guished himself and established his claim as All-America timber on every
Ward, 185 pounds of explosive dynamite, is so highly respected by his
opponents that they have double-teamed and sometimes triple-teamed
him in an effort to keep him out of their baokfield. He often is referred
to as the fifth man in the opponents' backfield. Averaging 50 minutes a
game last year is evidence that he is invaluable to the team both on
offense and defense.
Gifted with great speed and quick reactions, he has one of the fastest
and most vicious charges of any lineman in football today.
Ever since his first year, his spectacular play raised the experts' eye-
brows in amazement over the great football he played against robust
opponents. As a sophomore he was selected Lineman of the Year in the
Southern Conference and voted the most valuable player of the '50
Gator Bowl game against Missouri.
Coach Tatum smiles at the mention of his name then goes on to say:
"He's the greatest little football player I've seen, ounce for ounce!"
Last year he won nearly every honor that a lineman could receive.
Below is a list of them.

DR. H.C. BYRD
PRESIDENT, UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND
Upon the insistence of everyone, the Board of Regents, University
officials, the Athletic Department, students, fans, and just plain John Q.
Public, the Terp's new million dollar football plant appropriately was
named BYRD STADIUM.
It is easy to see why there was never a minute spent behind closed
doorj seeking a name for the stadium. Prom the time the very first
shovel of the 28 tons of dirt was removed from the stadium, it was
known that University President, H. C. Byrd, would receive the honor
and tribute due him by having it bear his name.
It has been through the exhaustive efforts of Dr. Byrd that the
University of Maryland is known today as one of the foremost educa-
tional institutions in the Nation. By the same token, he has made pos-
sible this new stadium as part of the program to give Maryland a first
class athletic curriculum. All this is due to his long time desire to build
Maryland into one of the best equipped Universities in the country.
Athletics is nothing new to Dr. Byrd. It was back in 1905 that he
first played for the Terps. From 1912 through 1934, he was head coach.
In those 25 years his teams compiled a 114-81-15 record

■MR MBBM WMS i H i MHi
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH AND ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
In just four years, Jim Tatum has brought the University of Mary-
land out of the football doldrums, and today the Terps from the little
college town of College Park, Md., are recognized as one of the foot-
ball powers of the nation.
Evidence that the gridiron drought has ended since the Tatum
regime started in 1947 is realized by his four-year record, 29-9-3.
Tatum, a native of McColl, S. C, started his athletic career at the
University of North Carolina, where he was a star tackle. After grad-
uation in 1935, he followed his coach, Carl Snavely, as assistant at
Cornell. Returning to his alma mater for his first fling at head coach-
ing, in 1942, his team compiled a 5-2-2 slate.
World War II found Tatum in the Navy. It was then that he was
to learn the Split-T formation from Don Faurot as the latter's assistant
at Iowa Preflight School. He later moved to Jacksonville Naval Air
Station as head coach in 1945.
After his Navy hitch, Tatum molded a strong eleven at Oklahoma.
His Sooners went to the 1947 'Gator Bowl and beat N. C. State, 34-13.
The call to Maryland came next, and grid fortunes here skyrocketed.
The future should be fruitful under a young coach who has the early
distinction in the profession as one of the best.
Tatum is married and has two children, Becky and Jimmy.
At 150 pounds, the Terps' Line Coach
Jack Hennemier made football fame for
him elf when he played center in his col-
lege days at Duke University, '33, '34, and
'35. Undoubtedly one of the smallest players
ever at the center of any line, Hennemier,
a 60-minute man in '35, won the most val-
uable player award as voted by his team-
mates in 1935. This same year he made All-
America Mention and the All-Conference
Because of his outstanding gridiron prow-
ess for his size, he is known, even today, as
' Scrappy Jack."
In 1939 he was lured to Washington and Lee University as Line
Coach. He stayed there through '41, before being called into the Navy
in '42. That year he played center and coached at the Pensacola Naval
After 3M> years in the service, Hennemier returned to Duke in '45
as assistant line coach and freshman coach.
He came to the Terps in '49 as line coach and handles the defensive
team, an outstanding characteristic of Terp elevens under his tutelage.
Tommy Mont, one of the greatest athletes
in the history o.f the University of Mary-
land, returns this year to his alma mater to
handle the offensive backfield duties for the
Mont, a four-year letterman in football,
basketball, and lacrosse, comes to Maryland
after four brilliant years with the profes-
sional Washington Redskins.
A home stater, coming from Cumberland,
Md., Mont embarked on his athletic years
in 1941. He got two years in before enter-
ing the service in the spring of '43. He
played tailback in '41 then quarterback on
the '42 T eleven. Both years he won his bas-
ketball and lacrosse letters also. Mont won
All-America Mention as well as being placed on the Conference team
in '42, and was named the outstanding college player of the Washing-
ton-Maryland area that year.
With 42 months in the service, 18 of which were spent in the ETO,
Mont continued playing ball. He was tailback on the Fort Benning
post championship team of '43. As quarterback and head coach, he led
the 3rd Infantry team to the ETO championship. He also was at the helm
of the 7th Army All-Star team.
Mont completed his college ball playing quarterback for the Terps
in '46, when he again won All-America Mention and All-Conference
honors. Has three sons, ages 4, 2, and 10 months.
A Navy vet, Giese, a native of Milwaukee,
Wis., began his career in 1942 at Wisconsin
State College where he lettered playing end
in football and won a monogram as a
Entering the service in June '43, he was
sent to Central Michigan College to study
under the V-12 program. He played right
half before transferring to Miami Training
Center and then to Jacksonville in '45
where he played end under Coach Tatum.
He kept his football career going by en-
rolling at Oklahoma in '46 to play for his
Navy boss from Jacksonville. He won a
berth on the All Big 7 team that year.
Giese returned to Central Michigan to
play one more year and got his B.A. and B.S.
In '49, Tatum beckoned his former star to Maryland as end coach. Mix-
ing football with studies, Giese got his Master's in Physicial Education
One of the finest tackles produced at the
University of Tennessee, the Terps' of-
fensive line coach, Denver Crawford, came
to Maryland last year from W.&L., where
he was line coach in '49.
Crawford played one year of varsity ball
in '42 before joining the Army Air Force;
playing at Maxwell field and Fort Worth
Returning to Tennessee, he played on the
Neyland teams of '46 and '47. Crawford
made All-SE tackle all three years he play-
ed for the Vols and made the All-America

around athletes to enter Maryland, but has confined his talents to football. Expected
to play baseball next spring, however. Here on Charley Keller scholarship. A fast
stepping back both on offense and defense. Should really sparkle this fall. Gained
125 yards in 19 carries for 6.5 last year. Completed 3 for 5 passes for 43 yards.
Caught 2 for 30. Thrives on defense also. Returned 13 punts for 276 yards and
3 kick-offs for 40. Intercepted 3 enemy aerials for 102 yards, one a td snag for 45
yards on last play of game against Duke. Scored 2 td's. Strong candidate for punt-
ing duties. All-County for 3 years and most valuable player in Westchester Co. in '47.
ED FULLERTON, 20, 5-11, 190, Junior from West View. Pa. His teammates call him
"blood and guts." Appropriately so, for Ed is mean and rugged on the field. Fast
and never gives up. Switched from full to half this spring and did justice to the
move. Carried 47 times for 209 yards. Scored 3 td's. Should have a great year.
LYNN DAVIS, 24, 5-11, 170, Senior from Baltimore, Md. Ace defensive back. Fast
and keen diagnosis of plays coming his way. Hard to block. Star back at Patterson.
RALPH FELTON, 19, 6-0, 185, Sophomore from Midway, Pa. "The Midway Express."
The hottest soph halfback in spring ball. An unusually shifty ball carrer with a powerful
charge. Tough to follow. Blessed with a left-handed passing arm, a valuable find for
Tatum. Will be tough to keep out of a number 1 slot. Was All-W.P.I.A.L. Will play
baseball for Terps.
CHESTER HANULAK, 18, 5-10, 165, Sophomore from Hackensack, N. J. Another
better than average soph. Fast shifty runner; shakes off tacklers with peculiar hip
movement. Sure to break into lineup. All-League and All-County at Hackensack.
LELAND LIEBOLD, 19, 6-1, 190, Sophomore from Smokeless, Pa. The home town
name by no means is indicative of his football savvy. He shows a lot of "smoke."
May be doing some of the punting. He kicks from the "port" side. Was All-County
and played in All-Star game at Armagh High. GEORGE ALBRECHT, 21, 5-11, 180
Sophomore from Munhall Pa. A tower of strength as defensive half. Fast, hard
runner. Should fit into defensive picture. BOB LAUGHERY, 20, 6-0, 200, Sophomore
from Mill Run, Pa. QB on the frosh team. Shifted to half. Fast, power-type runner.
Experience this year would be big help.
EUGENE PYCHA, 21, 5-11, 180, Sophomore from Baltimore, Md. Has a lot of desire
but might be a year away from varsity ball.
ED "MIGHTY MO" MODELEWSKI, 22, 6-0, 210, Senior from West Natrona, Pa. The
other half of the brother act. One of biggest names in all-time turf annals at Mary-
land. Big, strong and powerful runner. Also a good blocker. Moved to full this year
to give Terps that bull -dozing power lunge that is his specialty. In final spring prac-
tice game he picked up 138 yards in 13 tries from the single wing. In Duke game
he missed outgaining entire Blue Devil output by 2 yards and missed the same feat
by 4 yards in N. C. State game. He picked up 95 against Duke and 124 against the
Wolfpack. Picked up 553 yards in 119 carries to run his 2-year output to 1178 yards,
best on the team. Caught 8 aerials for 110 yards and passed 12 times for 83.
Returned 5 kick-offs for 81. Scored 30 points, second to Shemonski. Missed two games
because of injuries. Barring same, he should be hard to stop in '51. Made AP and
UP All-America Honorable Mention; AP and Southern Football Writers' All-Conference
DAVE CIANELLI, 24, 6-0, 215, Senior from Hagerstown, Md. Carried as full, but
Dave's dish is defense, where he has been outstanding. Should be one of nation's best
linebackers. Whether he backs up the middle or the outside, Cianelli will be one of the
toughest men to get by. The rougher it gets the better he likes it. Is Co-Captain with
Ward. Superb leadership. Married and has one daughter, age 2. Navy vet.
KARNEY SCIOSCIA, 22, 5-10, 200, Senior from Westfield, N. J. A slashing blocker,
an important asset for Split-T fullback. Does a neat job ahead of ball carrier. Fast
and aggressive. Carried last year 22 times for 110 yards. Caught 1 pass for 21.
All-State at Westfield High.
ED BARRITT, 21, 5-10, 200, Sophomore from Long Island, N. Y. Held out last year.
Sho'ild be an adequate reserve for the offense. All-Scholastic.

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY
The history of the present University is the history of two in-
stitutions: the old privately-owned and operated University of Mary-
land in Baltimore and the Maryland State College (formerly Maryland
Agricultural College) at College Park. These institutions were merged
In 1807 the College of Medicine of Maryland was organized, the
fifth medical school in the United States. The first class was graduated
in 1810. A permanent home was established in 1814-1815 by the erection
of the building at Lombard and Greene Streets in Baltimore, the oldest
structure in America devoted to medical teaching. Here was founded
one of the first medical libraries (and the first medical school library)
in the United States. In 1812 the General Assembly of Maryland author-
ized the College of Medicine of Maryland to "annex or constitute facil-
ities of divinity, law. and arts and sciences," and by the same act de-
clared that the "colleges or faculties thus united should be constituted
an university by the name and under the title of the University of Mary-
land." By authority of this act, steps were taken in 1813 to establish
"a faculty of law," and in 1823 a regular school of instruction in law
was opened. Subsequently there were added: in 1882 a Department of
Dentistry which was absorbed in 1923 by the Baltimore College of
Dental Surgery (founded in 1840, the first dental school in the world) ;
in 1889 a School of Nursing; and in 1904 the Maryland College of
Pharmacy (founded in 1841, the third oldest pharmacy college in the
The Maryland State College was chartered in 1856 under the name
of the Maryland Agricultural College, the second agricultural college in
the Western Hemisphere. For three years the College was under private
management. In 1862 the Congress of the United States passed the Land
Grant Act. This act granted each State and Territory that should
claim its benefits an appropriate amount of unclaimed western lands,
in place of scrip, the proceeds from the sale of which should apply under
certain conditions to the "endowment, support, and maintenance of at
least one college where the leading object shall be, without excluding
other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to
teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the
mechanic arts, in such a manner as the Legislatures of the States may
respectively prescribe, in order to promote the liberal and practical
education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions
of life." This grant was accepted by the General Assembly of Maryland,
and the Maryland Agricultural College was named as the beneficiary
of the grant. Thus the College became, at least in part, a State institu-
tion. In the fall of 1914 control was taken over entirely by the State.
In 1916 the General Assembly granted a new charter to the College, and
made it the Maryland State College.
In 1920, by an act of the State Legislature, the University of Mary-
land was merged with the Maryland State College, and the resultant
institution was given the name University of Maryland.
