McGlone AND T. C. Kfiley . F R E WO R D b« ] } W L The publishing of a college annual is no easy task. It is sufficiently difficult, even when a long line of precedents exists upon which to base the work; but when a completeh ' new structure, foundation and all, must be erected, the builders are of necessity often tilled with despair. Though we who have toiled can now draw long sighs of relief, and vow never again to enter the field of college publications; the fact still remains that we shall always carry tender memories of this academic year: to deny that the associations have been a pleasure would be h ' pocrisy. And so, in commending the 1925 Reveille to its readers, we devoutly pray that they ma - derive from its pages enjoyment and inspiration to equal or even to exceed that which we have obtained in the compilation. The Editors U U i : Dedicated 1 o lte4W A John M. Dennis Descendent of a long line of Mary- land patriots; himself, an untiring worker for the state and its institu- tions; a man, risen to great heights in both private and public affairs; and, an able champion of the I ' niversity of Maryland: We, the students of the University of Maryland, at College Park, do gratefully and respectfulh- dedicate this volume of the Reveille.

Secretary Fred Bull - Treasurer Joseph Burger Rep. to Ex. Council Walter Bromley Sergeant-at-Arms G. Page Gardner, President History T was back in the good old days of September, 1921, that the campus surrounding the University of Maryland was brilliantly illuminated by rays of emerald hue. Even old Sol looked perplexed and a dark shadow of awe crossed his brow — wait a minute folks, don ' t be alarmed! These glaring rays of green were merely the members of the Class of ' 25. As the days rolled by, the high and mighty Sophomores diligently and tirelessly plied their trade, and within a few weeks they successfully accomplished their desire — that of subduing the Freshmen of ' 21. We, the innocent victims of circumstance, dutifully obeyed the will of these superior beings and walked submissively to classes with the Sophomore trademarks of " Rat " and " Rabbit " stamped plainly on our once smiling visages. The month of June came and woe to the " Sophs " for the impossible became possible and we gained our revenge by an overwhelming landslide; we easily pulled our superiors into the muddy waters of the famous old Paint Branch. By the end of our first year at Maryland, it became noticeable that the Class of ' 25 had some very promising budding athletes, orators, and social leaders. And so it came to pass that we were full-fledged Sophomores. A few of our ' 21 classmates had fallen by the wayside but, nevertheless, we still held a goodly number of students. A more scholarly attitude seemed to grasp us. Several of our members proved that they were real athletes. A member of our class received a medal for being the best drilled private and our athletes became prominent in Maryland U ' s little world of sportdom. The first two years of our college career seemed to pass by like a flash of lightning and we were Juniors before we realized it. Our prom was a gala aff ' air, [241 1925 and the first of its kind to be given in the new Ritchie gymnasium. During our third year the University of Maryhind gained a strong grip in athletics. Several members from the Class of ' 25 were among the leaders in the various sports. Girls ' basket-ball was inaugurated this year. Four coeds from our class were among those who brought this sport to a success at Maryland. Five of our coeds also held places on the Girls ' Rifle Team. All five of these feminine sharpshooters received letters and they are the first women students who ha e become members of the " M " Club. Four collegiate years have been stored away in the pleasant corners of our memories. Our little journey is over, and we have arrived at the crossroads on which we begin our lifetime journeys; may happiness and prosperity accompany every member. We wish to express our strongest appreciation to the members of the faculty for their sincere efforts in helping us to reach professional goals. To the students who follow us, we extend our heartiest congratulations and trust that their days at the grand old Alma Mater shall be as pleasant and beneficial as our college days have been.

All of his time has not been devoted to studying, however, as he is a member of the so-called " Lovers ' Club, " and has often been seen on the campus in company of one of our popular co-eds.

" Hiram, " while a very quiet fellow, is yet full of tricks; a student, yet a man fond of the ladies. This year, John has been especially busy as Manager of the ISasket-ball Team (in this connection he made a special hit while entertaining our City College friends), as an R. O. T. C. Captain, and as a member of both the business and editorial staffs of the Reveille. Needless to say, such a man of ability and good fellow- ship has made a host of friends during his stay here.

With the record that you have already made, Frank, we predict the greatest of success to you in your future work. WIRT GRAPER BARTLETT B. S. — Engineering WASHINGTON, D. C.

There seems to be no end to the amount of work that he can put out and yet it is strange we never see him studying. In fact, most of the time he is jiresifHng over a session of " hot air dispensers, " and being a mechanical engineer this, of course, is in his line. He is a wonderful fellow in that he secured a " drag " with every- one with whom he comes in contact, professors included. We hope that this pleasing personality and his hearty grin win him many more friends when he parts from his class- mates. flS m JKk ' m m L EDWIN CALEB BAUM B. S. — Engineering WASHINGTON, D.

His business ability has been sufficiently pronounced to permit him not only to put himself through college, but to enjoy the lu.xury of a " business coupe " at the same time — a feat which in itscll is no mean accomplishment. His ever present humor and good nature have enabled him to enjoy the performance ol his work, which his record shows was well done. And, as we part, we cannot but express the hope that the success he enjoys will be as keen as our enjoyment of having known [281 " AROLD M.

He is a jgga strong advocate of matrimony; and no sooner had he lit at the University of Maryland, than he married one of our co-eds! He is well known to the athlete and his chief ambition is to get " Shorty, " Jr. to be a great football star. Loyal to his beliefs, thorough in his work, and full of unbounded energy, he will undoubtedly make as great a success teach- ing agriculture as he did in putting the Germans to flight. GEORGE E.

Since coming to Maryland he has been specializing in commercial courses and has done splendid work during his three years here. .Aside from his academic work he takes a great interest in Drama tics and Public Speaking and has shown exceptional ability along both lines. A few years ago Carville ' s happy thought (for a memory book I was " variety is the spice of life, " now — it is " variety used to be the spice of life. " We wonder why? Carville, may you have every bit of happiness and success possible in future years. ©IC. " JOHN BOWIE, the pride of Anne Arundel County, set out in hot pursuit of knowledge in the " ' lofli) ' 21. Having lived and consequently worked un a larm for some years, he decided he would not be a farmer, but an engineer instead, and the past four years have shown that he chose wisely. John has all the quali- ties that a good engineer should possess. He is one of those big outdoor men who picks out what he wants and goes after it, with all his mind, sold and strength, and gets it one hundred times out of every hundred. So here ' s to you, John; may you continue to get what you go after, and may fortune smile on you as you go out to practice your profession in the wide, wide world. MERRIL LEROY BOWSER B.

Vet, despite his numerous activities, he has found time to enjoy a bit of the social phase of life, and for the benefit of those who may be in doubt, he really lives in College Park and just visits in Washington. He is conscientious in all that he undertakes and, if past performance is any criterion, he should be highly successful in the field of Mechanical Engineering. 131 WALTER DAVIS BROMLEY B.

His striking personality, revealing a strong character and other such desirable qualities, as thoughtfulness, generosity, and broadmindedness, have made him a real friend to every Maryland student. His " one failing " is " the co-eds, " with whom he is extremely popular. Although Fred was an active member of ahnost every student organization, an officer of many, and never too busy to help others, he made a splendid scholastic record, being elected to Alpha Zcta in his Junior year.

It is hard to realize how he kept his mind off of automobile engines long enough to accomplish all this, and if this subject does not go to his brain, we expect big things from him as an engineer in the automotive field. 34] 1925 CHARLES CHRISTOPHER CASTELLA B.

Naturally, long associations are conducive to good friendships, doubly so where a man of Compher ' s calibre is concerned; so we regret having to part. Here ' s wishing you the best o ' luck, boy!

If one should stand at the entrance of the campus every morning he would hardh- fail to observe the appearance of Edwin on his motorcycle which carries him to and from Washington. In student activities Edwin was not very active because he was not a resident student, and was absent from the campus at the time that most of the organizations were meeting. However, this did not prevent him from making many friends, and making good marks throughout the four years. His many friends and classmates wish him the very best of success in his future endeavors in the scientific world. [43] WATSON IRVING FORD B. S. — Engineering BALTIMORE, MD.

With two letters to his credit in baseball, and with offices being held in many of his extra-curricular activities; it is no wonder that he is so popular a man. During the last year, however, the general student body has had to give up his attentions in favor of a particular black-haired Junior; in fact to picture one without the other is difficult.

IFTER a successful career at Technical High School of Washington, Ralph came to the University of jg Maryland where for two years he was registered in the Engineering CoUege. During the summer of his second year he held a position as a salesman, and it was then that he decided that he liked the commercial world better and decided to take up the commercial course for the remaining two years in order that he might have a good foundation for a commercial career. The fact that he has received a commission in the Reserve Officers Corps of the I ' nited States Army speaks alone for his ability as a military leader. While at the University, Ralph took four years training under the Military department. While at Maryland, Ralph did excellent scholastic work and was active in the various student affairs, and it is needless to say that he will meet with success in life, for where there is so much ability and so determined a wil! success is evident.

Oswald is also very much interested in Lacrosse and has shown what he is made of by his untiring effort to make the team. He is a true lover of the sport and deserves much credit for his splendid work as playing manager of the team. The best of luck to you, Oswald!

Council John Waters Sergeant-at-Arms President History |HE Class of ' 26 returned to Maryland this fall full of the same pep and spirit for which it has always been noted. This spirit, early expressed by the Class, has been a strong factor in moulding its history. The Freshmen Code was handed to us early in the fall of 1922 and it was not long before some of us realized that " rat meetings " were something besides pink teas. A great many of us felt that chairs and sofas were superfluous pieces of furniture after the adjournment of one of these meetings. Bob Armstrong was our Freshmen Class President; while Stew Whaley has presided over the class for the last two years. The first snowfall of our Freshmen year witnessed the second battle of the Marne at which our enemies, the Sophomores, were routed and fled in confusion. Many of the members of our Class have distinguished themselves in all branches of athletic activities on the campus. " Zuke " Supplee and " Chief " Beatty both gained the distinction of being chosen for the All-Maryland football teams. Supplee also was on the x ' ll-South-Atlantic team, and was given honorable mention on Walter Camp ' s All-American Eleven. Hall, Bonnett, Osborne, Lanigan, Waters, Parker and Herzog, also did splendid work on the football team. Other members of the Class were on the football squad and they worked hard throughout the season. In Basket-ball our Class has played a prominent part, furnishing the main part of the team for the last two years. Beatty, Hall, Supplee, Ensor and Tro.xell have been our representatives on the team. Halley, Troxell, Brayton, Waters, (Concluded on page 96) [93] u 1925 BTiT JM TmV II ii I ■iinmw Junior Glass History (Concluded from page 93) Spinney, Ray and Coakely appeared in the Baseball box score frequently last spring. Supplee, Endslow, Whiteford, Deibert and Ditman all contributed points in the various track meets held in the spring. Staley has been on the Cross-Country Team for the last two years. The Class of ' 26 furnished many members of the Lacrosse squad last year who will have appeared as regulars on the Team of this spring. The Coeds of our Class have taken an active part in athletics in the formation of the Women ' s Athletic Association of the University. Thelma Winkjer is captain of the Girls ' Rifle Team. Other Juniors are Laura Amos and Dorothy Murray. The Dramatic Club, Glee Club, Literary Societies, and various other campus activities contain many members of our class who are active, and who are more and more coming into control of these organizations. The Sophomore Prom last year prov ' ed to be a great success, due to the splendid co-operation on the part of the Class. And as for our Junior Prom this year: it was pronounced by everyone to be the best dance ever staged at the University. Every detail of the Prom went off perfectly and the dignified way in which it was conducted is said to have set a precedent in local dances. The men who were responsible for the Prom ' s success were John Waters, Jean Brayton, Joe Endslow, George Schmidt, and Ahin Parker; not to mention our President, Stew Whaley, who worked harder than anyone. The success of this year ' s " Diamondback, " and the launching of the Reveille again are perhaps the biggest landmarks of our Junior year. Stoner, Ennis, McGlone and Kelley ha e been the guiding hands of these two publications. We look forward to our Senior Year with hopefullness and confidence that our past successes will continue. We wish to express to the departing Class of ' 25 our sincere good wishes for a happy and successful future. Tom Browne, Historian. CCORDING to a general concensus of opinion, three outstanding con- tributions made to the campus lay the Class of ' 27 during it ' s brief career at Maryland are brains, brawn and beauty. Its prominence in student activities and a fair share of scholarly records help to prove the first point in the assertion; prowess in the various fields of athletics seems to indicate the truth of the second point; and as pretty a bevy of coeds as ever graced the hill, we are told, substantiates the third point concerning the pulchritude contributed by this class. But since this is neither the time nor occasion for bestowing praises let us peruse an account of some e ' ents and accomplishments of the Sophomore Class from the time of its inception. To begin with, the registration line in the fall of ' 23 was the longest in history of the University. Two hundre d and eighty-five aspirants for degrees, including forty-seven young women, made their auspicious arrival on the campus that year. Recollections (vivid as " Floppy ' Jones " hat) of our " baby days, " bring to mind several happy and unhappy experiences. There were, for instance, those harrowing ordeals commemorating rat week — the week when rabbits blossomed forth in " Sis Hopkins " pigtails. Or, to continue with the humilating part of every freshman ' s life, do you remember their dance and entertainment? The Sophomores are still hunting down the culprits who precipitated a shower of innocent cabbages that memorable night — the night when Kathryn Stevenson, Eleanor Seal, Alberta Orton and other versatile class talent presented the model " Y " hut scene. Mantles of authority for the Class of ' 27 during its freshman year rested upon the shoulders of " Jack " Tonkin, President; Roger Whiteford, Vice-Presi- dent; Helen Beyerle, Secretary; Monroe Leaf, Treasurer; Albert Granger, Sergeant-at-Arms and Edward M. Tenney, Jr., student representative. Soon after the officers had taken office a committee, composed of Arthur Boyd, J. L. Cardwell, Frances Russell, Charles Futterer and Paul W. Triplett. launched the annual freshman hop; which most of us believe outshone the sopho- more " prom. " A glance over the football material produced from ' 27 men reveals the fact that six of the Freshman squad " made " the ' arsity team last fall and figured prominently in the games. Among them were " Ed " Tenney, Arthur Boyd, " Bill " Ward, Kenchin Coghill, J. L. Cardwell and Myron Stevens. Tenney began a brilliant career, only to sustain an injured foot in the early part of the schedule; an injury which disabled him for the remaining games. He is now looked upon as one of the leading " props " for the team in the 1925-1926 season. In basket-ball. Captain Cardwell and the Frosh team won all but one of the fifteen games played. In baseball, the team, that season, won all but three games. Track, too, furnished much interest, the team defeating two Washington teams, and losing to two Maryland schools. But the men were not the only athletes. On the Rifle Team, for example, four girls out of the ten who won letters in the 1923-1924 season were coeds of ' 27. They are Helen Beyerle, Irene Jacobs, Julia Louise Behring and Margaret Haeseker. Helen, in addition to being a good markswoman, was also a versatile basket-ball player. She, Maxine Heiss (chief organizer of the Women ' s Athletic Association), Elizabeth Taylor, Louise Harbaugh and Alberta Orton were among the shinging lights on the Women ' s basket-ball court both this year and last. A class history without the mention of Helen Connor or Winifred Mc- Minimy, our star scholars, would be incomplete. Helen won fame last year by winning the Alpha Zeta medal for having the best marks of any Freshman in the College of Agriculture.

But it wasn ' t as easy as that nor is that all there is to it! Following the tradition, we were first initiated, quite thoroughly, by the Sophomores. We certainly did get well acquainted with them the first few weeks. After we had been tried and found worthy, by the •Sophomores, the college activities attracted many of us, and we began the first part of our four years ' record. In the early fall, there was football, cross-country, and track. The records of our teams in these sports are evidence of their abilities and also their enthusiasm in responding to training. In basket-ball, rifle, boxing and indoor track, some very fine material for future varsity teams was discovered. The mid-year examinations proved too much for some of the class, but as a whole, we came out very much on top. In the early spring, we elected our officers, choose our colors of green and white, and made plans for our Freshman Dance and annual Freshman entertainment. The latter proved to be instructive to the class as well as entertaining to the upper classmen. F " rom it, we learned much about the improper storage of fruits and eggs, and the extent of life of such vegetables as cabbages, and onions. The Freshman Dance was declared by all to be a very fine dance, the decorations receiving many compliments. Now that springtime has come, baseball, lacrosse, tennis and track ha e attracted many candidates, and a successful season is promised. In looking back over this year, it may seem to some that we have not made much progress; but just give us a chance, and at the end of our four years, you will declare that ours is the best class that ever graduated from the University of Maryland. Ruth Williams, Historian. The Reserve Officers ' Training Corps HE department of Military Science and Tactics reports that the work during the past year has progressed very favorably. The growth of a general feeling throughout [ I he I ' niversity, that the Military Depart- ment is a real and actual part of the institution striving for co-operation and co-ordination with the other departments, has helped to make this success possible. In addition to strictly military subjects, the personnel of the Military Department is constantly tr ing to bring before the students a true sense of Americanism, loyalty, obediance to lawful orders, respect to elders and superiors, leadership, courtesy and various other c|ualities which tend to make good citizens. The mission of the R. O. T. C. is to produce Reserve Officers. It is the policy of the War Department to so train the student in the basic work, that they will be anxious to continue training in the advanced courses. More men are taking advanced work every year; this, together with good training and work on the part of the unit; has placed the University of Maryland on the list of distinguished colleges for the past three years.

Since then every year has shown an increase in its number of members and the number of matches shot. Among the schools fired against this year were Rutgers, Cornell, Columbia, Lehigh, Gettysburg, Minnesota, Northwestern, Johns Hopkins and George Washington. Teams were also entered in the Third Corps Area and the Hearst ' s Inter-Collegiate Trophy matches. The Rifle Club is a progressive organization and much credit for this is due to Mr. McManus of the local R. O. T. C. staff for his work in connection with the club and teams. 109] Harry Clifton Byrd Athletic Director and Assistant to the President EW persons connected with the University of Maryland are more widely or more favorably known, throughout the length and breadth of our state, than is the clear-eyed, curly (now slightly grizzled) headed coach of athletic teams who bears the name which heads this story. Bearing the said name is, however, merely an official dignity. It cannot be said that he answers to it. Whether it be on the campus of the University, on the sport pages of the newspapers, in the councils of the Southern Conference or in the broader fields covered by the American Football Coaches Association or the National Collegiate Athletic Association, it is " Curly " Byrd who is the subject of discussion. In the hearts of his friends it is always " Curly " and " Curly " he will doubtless always remain. Born in Crisfield, Somerset County, Maryland, on February 12, 1889, Curly recei ed his early education in the public schools of the county and in the Crisfield High School. He entered the Maryland Agricultural College in 1905 and was graduated in 1908, with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. While in College, Curly was an excellent student and at the same time developed into one of the best all-round athletes Maryland has produced. He won the Alumni Medal awarded to the best debater in the annual contest between the Literary Societies in 1906. He played end on the Varsity Football Team in 190.5, and quarterback in 1906 and 1907, being Captain of the team in the latter year. He was the chief reliance on the pitching staff of the baseball team in 1907 and 1908, and was anchor man on the Relay team of 1908. He also established enviable records in the dashes from fifty yards up to four- forty. After graduation he took up graduate work in literature at Western Maryland College and later studied law at George Washington and Georgetown Universities. He played professional baseball for three years. In 1912 he returned to the Maryland Agricultural College as Athletic Coach, becoming in 1914 athletic director, a position which he has since retained. Since 1910 " Curly " has been a member of the sports staff of the Washington Star. When the Maryland State College of Agriculture was reorganized into the University of Maryland, " Curly " was raised to the position of Assistant to the President in order to relieve the President of many details of executive administra- tion. It would be difficult indeed to estimate his value to the I ' niversity in this new position. It is, however, in the field of athletics that he is best known. Without a gymnasium, with an extremely limited number of athletes to select from, with exceedingly limited financial resources, and almost unaided by coaching as- sistants. Curly developed athletic teams to represent the University which have attracted national attention. Almost at once after his taking charge of the teams of the College, Maryland forged to the front in the ranks of Maryland Colleges. Since then she has never been headed. Only once since 1915 has Hopkins, our 11.31 1925 chief rival in the state, lowered our colors in football, and not once in ten years has she scored a touchdown against Maryland teams coached by " Curly. " On the other hand, Maryland has defeated such teams as Rutgers, Syracuse, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, and gave Yale the scare of its life in 1923 when the score was only 16 to 14 for the Bull-dog, after a gruelling battle. That this success of Curly ' s is not merely local is evidenced by the fact that he is a member of the Executive Committee of the Southern Conference, Chair- man of the Committee on Membership and District Representati e of the American F ootball Coaches ' Association, and a member of the Council of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Maryland is proud of " Curly. " She is proud of the successes he has attained for her athletic teams; she is proud of the fact that his talent and ability are recognized by the leaders of collegiate athletics in all parts of the country; but, most of all, she is proud of the undisputed, universally acknowledged fact, that teams coached by " Curly " Byrd are genuinely amateur teams, trained to give their utmost to win by playing the game in a thoroughly clean, sportsmanslike manner.

This showing was good when it is taken into consideration that at no time after the first game was Maryland ' s full first team strength available. Injuries, particularly to the backs, forced Curly Byrd to present a patched lineup in nearly every game, including the all-important fray with Hopkins. Another thing which may detract from the showing of the eleven this year is the fact of comparison with last year ' s eleven, the most powerful ever turned out by a State college. With the loss of such men as McQuade, Groves, Branner, Pollock and Brewer from his ' 23 team, Curly was confronted with the task of rebuilding his aggrega- tion, especially the backfield. By a shifting of his men to new positions, he presented a set of backs in the first game that looked almost good enough to equal the McQuade, Groves outfit. But the backs seemed particularly susceptible to injuries with the result that anything like a real offensive power was missing the entire season. During four of the most important games — viz., those with W. L.; V. P. I.; C. U. and J. H. U., second string backfield men filled positions. So while ' the scores of the games are not impressive, the showing was exceptionally good, all things considered. That the team did as well as it did may justly be attributed to a line that played fine football from the start of the season to the finish. RECORD Md. 0— V. P. I. 12 Md. 0- 19 Md. 6— U. N. C.

S. -Hopkins The Games MARYLAND, 23— WASHINGTON COLLEGE, The Old Line team opened the season with the fast, scrappy eleven from the Eastern " Sho, " and the boys from Chestertown proved to be far from the " set I 129 1 1925 ups " that they were figured in some quarters. Our defense played in mid-season form but the offensive work of the team was ragged, particularly in the second half when, although within sight of the goal several times, we were unable to put the ball over. To Beatty, Maryland ' s right end, went the honor of scoring the first touchdown of the season, when early in the first period he scooped up a fumble and went seventy yards for a touchdown. The other two touch-downs resulted after consistent marches down the field with Beasley, Pugh and Osborne doing most of the ball-carrying. In the second half a number of the reserve men got their opportunity and performed credibly. The final score came when Hall, making his debut as a drop-kicker, sent the ball over from the 35 yard line. MARYLAND, 7— WASHINGTON AND LEE, 19 This game, though an early season one, was considered one of the most important of the year because of the keen rivalry existing between the South Atlantic colleges. Although the game was a disappointing one it must be conceded that the Generals had the superior team that day at least. The boys from Lexing- ton, with the constant encouragement of the " W. L. Swing " from the stands, played in midseason form, flashing an open running attack that was hitting on all six. On the other hand, the Black and Gold had an off-day, and just " could not get going. " The old Maryland fight was there as usual but there was a lack of co-operation on both the parts of the offense and defense. W. L. tossed long forwards and worked triple passes with a speed that left our boys bewildered, whereas Maryland ' s plunging backs could make no effective games. The most pleasing thing of the day was the fine sportsmanship between both the teams and rooters of the two schools. MARYLAND, 38— RICHMOND, It was a much improved Old Line team that swamped the Spiders in this fray. Defense and offense showed a complete reversal of form from that which had been displayed against Washington and Lee the previous week. Richmond was helpless against Maryland ' s onslaught especially in the second quarter when the Black and Gold meandered down the field for three touch-downs. Besley ' s brilliant runs coupled with the passes to Supplee and Burger completely Baffled the aggregation from ' irginia. " Bottle " Hall was also in the limelight, scoring two field goals from difficult angles. The game was featured by many substitu- tions, many Richmond men falling by the wayside under Maryland ' s smashing attack, and many of the Old Line substitutes seeing action. MARYLAND, 0— V. P. I., 12 Virginia Poly, Maryland ' s Jonah rival, again had all the luck in the world in defeating the Old Liners. But the Black and Gold playing with a badly crippled team and against great odds was glorious in defeat. With three substitutes in the backfield much fumbling occured on Maryland ' s part, resulting in nine points for the Gobblers and robbing Maryland of what seemed a certain touch-down. Every time a Marylander would drop the ball, and it happened on seven or more occasions during the game, a Poly man would recover. Once, with only two yards to go for a score, there was a mix-up in signals among our inexperienced backs and the golden opportunity missed. Our line, without exception, played wonder- ful football, checking time and time again the heavy experienced Gobbler backs. Beatty at end and Burger at tackle smashed play after play of Poly ' s before they could get started. Rutherford, Poly ' s great drop-kicker, again went on his annual rampage against Maryland putting over three from beyond the forty yard line. 130] MARYLAND, 6— UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, Maryland ' s eleven journeyed to Tar-heel land to take the rubber contest of a five game series from North Carolina. As is typical of all Maryland-Carolina affairs the game was hard fought and exceptionally clean. Neither side was able to gain much advantage in the matter of downs but it was through the medium of two drop-kicks by " Bottle " Hall that the Old Liners were enabled to emerge victorious. Brilliant defensive play and close following of the ball featured the contest — but the Tar-heels didn ' t follow quite closely enough, as one of Hall ' s kicks followed a blocked punt that was recovered by Beatty. The other field goal was scored from the forty-four yard fine. This is Maryland ' s second succes- sive victory over Carolina, so the Tar-heels may be expected at College Park in ' 2.5 with blood in their eyes. MARYLAND, 0— CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY, The " fighting Irish " from Brookland sprang quite a surprise and gained a moral victory when they held the Byrdites to a scoreless tie. The Catholic lads are usually considered as " easy " for the Marylanders and it took nearly three quarters for the Black and Gold to wake up to the fact that C. U. was in to win. Our attack then got going in the final period, only to lose the fjall three times on fumbles or intercepted passes when within C. U. ' s twenty-five yard line. The game, although featured by fierce defensive play on both sides, was slowed up somewhat by C. LT. ' s constant use of the " huddle " system. So jubilant were the Brookland cohorts over the achievement of their team in holding their old rivals to a tie that they staged a big snake dance in their new stadium and presented gold footballs to their team with the score inscribed. MARYLAND, 0— YALE, 47 With visions of another game like that of ' 23 when the Old Liners held the Yale Bulldog to a 16 to 14 score, fully two hundred rooters followed the team the three hundred miles to New Haven via " Flivers, " " hops " and the rails. But Yale, rated as the best team in the country, this year, was too powerful for our plucky, but much lighter eleven. The Eli ' s, remembering the score of the previous year, presented their strongest lineup and a comf:)ination of brilliant running plays and passes that were too much for our boys. Curly in an effort to gain poundage and check the Yale attack, shifted Beatty and Supplee to the backfield, putting Ward and Lanigan on the wing positions. This detracted from Maryland ' s offensive power, with the result that the Black and Gold was able to gain only four first downs against the powerful Blue eleven. Our team did not disappoint its followers in the matter of gameness, however, battling to the finish. AK MARYLAND, 0— NORTH CAROLINA STATE, This was another one of the scoreless ties in which our team scored four times as many first downs as their opponents, but were unable to get the old pigskin across the last white line. It was " Homecoming Day " but neither the elements nor the Gods of Chance were kind to Maryland. A miserable, melting snow fell during the whole encounter making the going heavy and slow. Most of the gains made were of the " skid " type. The Old Liners were twice within .State ' s ten yard line, only to fumble or lose the ball at the critical moment. On three other occasions we were within drop-kicking distance but all three of Hall ' s attempts failed. On the other hand at only one time was the Wolfpack in a position to score and that was when a backed punt gave them the ball on our thirty-yard line. Besley ' s running back of kicks, was one of the brilliant features of an otherwise slow game. [13i: JOHNS HOPKINS, This year the teams went on the field with the odds even. Hopkins had been admittedly prepping, all year for this one particular game and Maryland was determined to ruffle the Blue Jays feathers because of the ' 23 game in which the Black and Blue had held the most powerful Old Line eleven ever turned out to a 6 to 6 tie. Each aggregation went in determined to win, but as last year, the shade of a hazy November evening descended on no victor and no celebration for either side. In yards gained and in first downs, Maryland was far superior to their ancient rivals, making twelve of the latter for a total of 210 yards, against three and a total of 89 yards for Hopkins. But the final punch was lacking for a score. Three times with Captain Ed Pugh leading the onslaught the Old Liners started offensive that took them far into Hopkins territory, the closing whistle putting an end to the third. Pugh, playing his last game in the Maryland uniform gave what was perhaps his best e.xhibition of football in his four years as a varsity player. Play after play he was called upon and always responded with slashing offtackle gains. The defense of each ele en was out of proportion to its corre- sponding offense with a kicking duel resulting in which the honors were about even. To Marylanders the game was a disappointment, not from the viewpoint of its spectacularism or the playing of the team, but because of the score. Any occasion upon which the Old Liners and the Blue Jays hook up that doesn ' t result in a decided victory for the Black and Gold is a failure. This rivalry, existing since 1892, becomes more intensified every year. Hopkins, undoubtedly, plays its best game against Maryland, as was evidenced on Thanksgiving Day. Maryland, however, proved itself to be the superior team, even though it did not achieve the victory that would have brought the Black and Blue self-esteem down somewhat. I 132 ] P KETBALL Coach Burton Shipley Of the three sports which " Ship " coaches, basket-ball is probably his strong forte. He is considered as an authority on the game, and has a reputation for turning out winning combinations. In two years " Ship " has whipped an aggregation of practi- cally green men into a smooth-working team that won the great majority of its games. Captain Jack Faber The team ' s fast, clever, fighting forward and leader for the past two years. Adept at pot-shots and with tricky floorwork. Jack has been a continual worry to the opponents ' defense. Faber intends to return to college next year; therefore the five he led this fall will be intact for the 1925 Manager Harmon Baker Also Timekeeper Baker; Referee Baker; Scorekeeper Baker; and Floor Scrubber Baker; for " Bak " was called upon to fulfill all these duties during the season. By this time Baker probably knows as much basket- ball as any official in the circuit. But ' tis better to have managed and travelled, than nexer to have travelled at all. 13.5 1 x Captain-Elect " Zuke " Supplee, whose six feet three inches usuallv gaxc him the jump on the opposing center.

M 137 1925, ii ' - — - " rr The Basket-ball Season ARYLAND ' S basket-ball activities, though only in their second year of re-establishment, ha ' e been highly successful. The -arsity team this year, playing against some of the most formidable fives in the country came through with the high ax-erage of tweh ' e victories against five defeats. When it is considered that this is only the second year of basket-ball for the varsity players and a several-year lay-off since high school days, this record is highly commendable and much credit must be given Coach Shiple - for the quintet he has turned out. One thing that characterized the Old Line outfit was its fighting spirit. The old adage that " a team that won ' t be beaten can ' t be beaten, " was demonstrated se ' eral times this year when the Black and Gold came through to win in the last few moments of play. Captain Faber and Ensor as forwards made a cle ' er combination, adept at floor play and both good shots. Long, rangy Supplee at center was a man around whom plays could be built. Beatty and Cardwell were a pair of husky, fighting guards, whom it was mighty hard to pass. In addition to these men. Coach Shipley had capable reserve strength in Burger, Tro.xell, Stevens and Boyd. Starting off with only four days ' practice after football season, the Old Liners greatly surprised the five from the l ' ni ersity of Virginia by winning a fast game. After that the team packed their duds and went on a short northern trip in order to defeat Columbia, 1923-24 inter-collegiate champs, and Ste ens. Following this the team suffered its first set-back at the hands of the Naval Academy. Maryland, for one of the few occasions during the year, was way off color in this game. In the next game the Black and Gold had no trouble in whip- ping Lafayette by a one-sided score. Then came the game of games against our old rival, C. ]., in the Brooklander ' s gym. In a hard-fought battle, it was all Maryland could do to win by the exceptional work of Supplee in the last five minutes. North Carolina, South Atlantic Champs, then visited us and lowered our colors only after a fast and furious game. The next game was with Gallaudet, and, although defeated, the mutes furnished much more trouble than was ex- pected. Following this Washington College ' s cle er team, which hiis played together for a number of years, took the Old Liners into camp. Then came the big game with Princeton, 1924-25 Inter-collegiate Champs, in Baltimore. Mary- land played well, but Princeton was just too clever for us. New York City College, Stevens and South Carolina next visited, to be given a taste of Maryland ho spi- tality, a licking, and then sent home. After that, just to show Virginia that our early season victory over her was no fluke, the team visited Charlottesville, and again won from the Cavaliers. Following this the team left for its annual pilgrim- age to Atlanta, Georgia and the Southern Conference Championships. In the first game Maryland staged quite an upset in defeating the powerful Alabama five, but was so used up in this game that North Carolina State won from them rather handily. The Old Liners, upon their return home, brought the season to a successful climax by once more defeating C. V.

[142] The Track Season RACK at Maryland suffered a slump during and subsequent to the War, but has been revKed in earnest, and in this, the third year of its re- construction, the team has competed, with honors, at some of the best meets in this district. The indoor season consisted of six meets. The Old Liners were somewhat handicapped by lack of real indoor training facilities, but what seemed like a disadvantage in running on the small gym track later turned out to be a blessing in disguise in furnishing experience on some of the " right-angled " turns encountered on different floors. The first meet was the Southern Conference affair at Charlottesville. Here the Black and Cold gained ten points for second place. The freshmen cleaned up on their division, but the real victory was that of the mile relay over the Penn relay championship ' irginia four. In a three-cornered race between Maryland, Virginia, and Carolina the Old Liner ' s quartet won handily, repeating in the University of Richmond ' s meet the next night. Also, in the Richmond meet, Maryland took second place in point scoring; while Matthews, a freshman, jumped five feet, ten inches for a school record. The next meet was the deorgetcjwn games in Washington. This was an off night for our boys, their only points coming in the high jump, the relay being nosed out by Richmond in the fastest race of the night. The team made a great come-back a short time later at the All-Baltimore games, winning the point trophy by a large margin. Three first places, fi e seconds, and fi ' e thirds were our achievements for that night. In the Johns Hopkins ' Games our varsity relay had no trouljle in defeating Navy in the fast time of three minutes, thirty-two and one-fifth seconds; while our frosh also won handily from the Plebes. In the open events, however, we did not do as well. At another All-Baltimore meet that wound up the indoor season, our men set the pace in the open events with ten points, and tied for the second greatest number in the South Atlantic competition. Smith, Matthews and Dittman starred to give Maryland the first places re- spectively in the 440 yard open, the 60 yard dash, and the South Atlantic shotput. The Relay lost a tough-luck race to the Fifth Regiment in the fast time of 3 minutes, 30 seconds, for the State Championship. Just what the outdoor season will result in is problematical but prospects look mighty good. An attractive schedule has been arranged in which the team competes in the Penn relays and Southern Conference Championships, besides dual meets with Hopkins, ' . M. I., Richmond, Navy and Carolina.

[147] 1 1925, 1 ' " w ' W m •,l ' THE OUTFIELD ' S the Reveille goes to press, the make-up of the ball team is still dubious, but prospects look mis ;hty good on paper. Battery, infield and outfield seem to be well supplied with a number of old men with promising new ones from the frosh outfit of last year. The fight for positions is a keen one, so the nine that is turned out should be on a par with other of Old Line teams. The pitching stafT of .Schrider, Nihiser, Mills, Brayton, Burroughs and Coakley is one of the strongest since the " ic Keene days " and should be able to stand up under the heavy schedule. Spinney and Coghill will no doul)t do the bulk of the receiving. Besley, Troxell, Moran, Burroughs and (iardner, all letter men, with Stevens and Murray, new men, are putting up a lively scrap for the four infield positions. In the garden, Remsberg, Snyder and Burgee will no doubt get first call, unless Brayton or Stevens should be shifted. Coach Shipley has been favored with warm spring weather, thus far, and his men should be in the pink for the Southern tour that will have come off during Easter vacation. Travelling as far south as Georgia, the Old Liners will engage in about seven games with teams of the Southern Conference. No wonder the boys are battling for positions with the prospect of such a trip before the lucky ones. In addition to the Easter jaunt, a very attractive schedule has been arranged.

This old Indian game, spectacular and thrilling as it is, has, until a few years ago, been slow in its development. This is not true, however, in the State of Maryland, which has for years been the Lacrosse man ' s stronghold. About jjA five years ago large uni ersities began to take up the game and it is now rapidly forging its way to the front as one of the most popular of collegiate sports. An inter-collegiate league, divided into North and South sections, has been instituted and for the past two years the Old Liner ' s team has been one of the main contenders for the championship. Last year, victories over Navy, Pennsyl- vania, Hopkins, Stevens and others placed us high in the rating. The victories over Hopkins and Navy were particularly sweet, and we like to call ourselves " moral champions. " 155] Coach Truitt and his gang are after the state and national championship with a vigor this year; but the task is going to be far from easy. Captain Marty, McQuade, Branner, Brewer, Hidlebach and Rowe, six powerful men around whom the team had been built for several seasons, have graduated, and new players must be found to fill their shoes. Prospects are uncertain; but with six of the last year ' s fighting outfit left as a nucleus, coupled with Coach Truitt ' s developing ability, a credible combination may be assured.

Coach Truitt had plenty of material to work with, all of last year ' s team being on hand and quite a large number of freshmen. Practice started immediately upon the opening of school and the antelopes were soon doing their daily dozen miles o er the hills and vales of Prince Ceorge County, naturally necessitated strict training; but this traini reward in the shape of six victories against one Jl defeat. The Old Line Harriers lost the first meet ■ of the season to V. P. I. but came back to win the " next five. Virginia was beaten by the narrow COACH TRUITT margin of one point, but William and Mary proved easy. Then the point trophies of the Baltimore marathon, the South Atlantic championships, and the Post marathon were all captured by Maryland ' s entrants. The out- standing men of the season were Newman, Patruska, Bowman and Compher. Others on the team were Buckman, Hill, Staley and Neilson. A great deal of credit must be given Coach Truitt for his work with this team ; he has devoted his time to it for love of this sport, in which he himself was once a runner of note. ( Note — In a post-season race, the Laurel-to-Baltimore Marathon, Al Patruska and Wilfred Froehlich, University of Maryland harriers, sprang the biggest surprise in long distance racing circles for some time by finishing fourth and seventh respectively. Over a long hard course of 26 miles, 385 yards, against a field of forty odd entrants, including Olympic men, these two Old Liners, almost novices at the game, ran courageously, in the face of a stiff wind, to win these coveted positions. 1571 THE TENNIS SyUAD ' U: Burns, Kimbroiigh, Tingley, V. Tennis H. Weber, C.reen. NTIL last year tennis at the Lhihersity of Mary- land suffered a decided lapse. For three years there was no team due chiefly to lack of interest of the students. Because of an insistent and popular demand, however, tennis has now been added to the sports calendar. The first team representing the school met with de- cided re erses, not winning a team match. This was probably due, though, to the fact that it was the first time that a team had been selected for three years, and little or nothing was known of the relati e strength of the available material. This year, however, with a " er ' promising schedule and good material, Maryland looks forward to a very successful season.

Among the chief problems that had to be overcome in the fostering of Freshman Athletics, was that of finding comfortable team-space for the Freshmen to practice and change " togs. " Even with so large a campus as Maryland ' s, it was found difficult to provide a space for every team and naturally the freshman were assigned the gulleys and the hillsides for practice. It is certain, however, that, in a few years, this defect will be eliminated for the University is bound to grow and expand to meet the needs of its increasing student body. As the Reveille goes to press, the Freshmen athletes have already shown their marked ability in football, basket-ball and track, and they are giving pleasing promises for the other branches. 1159] w HE success of the Freshman football squad this past season depends not so directly on the number of games won, as it does on the type of players which de eloped during the campaign. The squad as a whole made a most creditable showing by breaking even on the games played, winning two and losing two, closing the season by winning from North Carolina Freshmen 13 to 12 in an exception- ally well-played game. Under the Southern Conference rules Freshman teams are allowed to schedule only five games, but the University is fortunately situated so near Washington that it was possible to arrange five practice scrimmages with four of the Washington high school teams; thus providing experience in playing, which is invaluable to the " Youngsters. " The Freshmen opened their season with Balti- more City College, who unfortunately forfeited the game at the beginning of the second half, when the score stood 3 to in favor of the Freshmen. In the second game, a very much more experienced team won from the " Cubs, " the Virginia Freshmen. The bitterest pill came when it wsa necessary to swallow a 3 to defeat from the hands of the Catholic University Freshmen. But the past was all forgotten when the Freshmen won from Carolina Freshmen 13 to 12. Beaten 12 to until the end of the third quarter, by sheer courage and undaunted confidence in themselves, our " Rats " took advantage of the breaks and scored twice, kicking one of the points after touchdown, which meant victory. The Freshmen did so well in this final game that to mention any of them as stars would only mean that certain of the players had more experience than others, and it might detract from the fact that every man on the squad had done his job with the best that was given him to do it with. 160] J C.- PTAIN D.WID WHELCHELL InTERF;?ATERniTy JA KEL-T- ALL NTER-FRATERNITY Basket-ball has five points in its favor at Mary- land. First, and foremost, it gives athletics to other than men of varsity caliber; it promotes better spirit and co-operation among the Greeks on the Hill; third, it makes a good hunting ground for varsity material; fourth, it ofTers a break in the mid-winter monotony; and last, but not least, it affords the coeds an opportunity to get out of the dorms for a longer period in order to cheer their favorite fraternity gladiators. The contests have furnished some surprisingly good basket-ball. Former High School stars who have not made the varsity have their opportunity to shine here. The games have been a little rough in spots but this all adds to the fun of the affairs. The league is divided into national and local sections, the winners of which play each other for the championship and two silver cups. Delta Mu won the local division and Delta .Sigma Phi, the national. Delta Sigma Phi was successful in capturing the entire league championship for the second successive season.

It was planned only by way of experiment — a sort of bait to see just how many girls were interested; but the results were so encouraging, the girls so enthusiastic that the managers have decided to make a tennis tournament an annual affair from now on. Constance Church, versatile freshman, proved to be the " Helen Wills " of this preliminary event. And, all upper classmen will agree, Connie gave us a suspicion that she knew tennis. At any rate a number of the all-around athletes (speaking of coeds, of course) did not succeed in repulsing her f)nslaught. With swift strokes and sure, our agile champion eliminated her opponents as fast as they came. Only when she met Mary Harbaugh, who had previously defeated Patricia Wolf in a well-played match, in the finals did she have a real struggle, the match ending in a score of 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. Twenty-five tennis devotees participated in the fall tourney. These were a sufficient number, it was thought, to warrant a spring tournament in which a Gold Medal for the winner, and se eral other aluable prizes to the Runner-up and Semi-finalists, were to act as added incentives. Pat was elected manager of tennis for 1925. As this goes to press Pat was found kneedeep in preparations for the spring event. 168] 1925 i Betty Amos Helen Beyerle Grace Coe Anna Dorsey Alma Essex Julia Louise Behring Mary Harbaugh, Manager Mary Jane McCurdy Thelma Winkjer, Captain Rebecca Willis Elizabeth Flenner Sergeant Simmonds.

Even the most perfect of markswomen, Annie Oakley, herself, we venture to say would pat each of the coed riflers on the back with the remark, " Well done, thou good and faithful servant. " For undoubtedly the consistently high scores they ' ve made against their inter-collegiate competitors this season ranks them, if not the best, at least among the very best women riflers in the country today. The facts of the accomplishments attained by the University of Maryland team speak for themselves. Out of eleven telegraphic matches on the schedule they lost but one, and this against the University of Chicago team which scored a perfect 500. However, this loss was just another spur to do better, and within the following weeks the local girls had shot perfect scores against four of their rivals — Michigan Agricultural College, Syracuse University, University of Arizona, and University of X ' ermont. Throughout the entire season they dropped but thirteen points. Manager Mary Harbaugh arranged a schedule that she called " short and snappy, " covering only two months and calling for an average of two matches per week. These were in addition to the National Rifle Association matches, returns of which had not been received before this article went to press. When asked to indicate who the highest individual scorer was Coach Sargent Simmonds replied he would have to mention three — Helen Beyerle, Anna Dorsey, and Rebecca Willis since these three ranked within a hair ' s breath of each other. Letters were bestowed upon them and also upon Mary Harbaugh, Betty Amos and Thelma Winkjer. 171 : J jf SOPHOMORE BASKET-BALL TEAM Elizabeth Taylor, forward; Olive Seltzer, forward; Maxine Heiss, center, Captain; Helen Beyerle, side center; Louise Harbaugh, guard; and Gertrude Chestnut, guard. Substitutes, Ellen Jane Reiser, Irene Mead. EVER has interest in basket-ball been as keen among the Llniversity of Maryland girls as it has been this year. Thanks to the excellent management of the Women ' s Athletic -Association, and the co-operation of Coach Shipley (to whom the coeds are eternally grateful for permitting them to use the men ' s balls, and for having the gym floor scrubbed before games) two complete schedules were played with a precision that even the experienced men ' s teams might envy. The season opened January 26, with the inter- class championships, and closed with inter-sorority competition . ' pril 1. Interclass rivalry honors went to the sophomore girls. With a formidable team that humbled seniors, juniors, and freshmen alike, the champions won ' every game they played, A resume of scores tells the story: sophomores, 31; freshmen, 9; sophomores, 20, seniors, 12; sophomores, 12, juniors, 5; sophomores, 41, freshmen, ti; sohpomores, 17, seniors 14; and sohpo- mores, 20, juniors, 7. Just to show that basket-hall for women athletes is now being " served " in style, a handsome silver cup has been offered the victorious team. This trophy will each ' ear go to the winner of the interclass series. Kappa XI won the inter-sorority tournament. 1172] 1925 HEISS WOLF BEVERLE HARBAUGH Women ' s Athletic Association S the past season bears witness, the new Women ' s Athletic Association, which began functioning last fall, has proved to be a valuable impetus in establishing coed sports on the campus. I ' ntil this year, it is safe to say, rifle was the only field in which women athletes were sufficiently organized to make a showing. Other activities such as tennis, track or basket-ball were scattered about like so many lost sheep. Talent there was galore, but no incentive, no " central governing body " to spur the young women to show their prowess, as it were. Hence, by bringing all athletic interests to which women are adapted under one wing, the new A. A. has fulfilled a big mission. Now for a few words as to the origin and purpose of the organization. Among the pioneers who agitated the movement was Maxie Heiss. Heart and soul in the cause. Max was invited to offer her suggestions before a meeting of the Women Students ' Government Association early in October. No Marc Antony could have had a more eager audience of Romans than Max had of coed listeners that day. Without delay a committee, composed of Max as chairman, Helen Beyerle, Minnie Hill, Patricia Wolf, Mary Harbaugh, Thelma Winkjer and Elizabeth Duvall was chosen to draw up a constitution. A week later officers were elected and the constitution accepted. Following is the purpose of the association outlined : To supervise girls athletics; to promote more and better sports; to promote good sportsmanship; and to provide an incentive by presenting letters to individuals and trophies to winning teams. Max was unanimously chosen president; Pat Wolf, vice-president; Helen Beyerle, secretary, and Mary Harbaugh, treasurer. Rifle already well organized, basket-ball and tennis were the two sports upon which the girls first concentrated their immediate attention. A tennis tourna- ment was opened for the purpose of preparing the way for a regular tournament in spring; basket-ball followed on the heels of tennis. A schedule providing for both inter-class and inter-sorority competition was begun January 26, and was such a success that there is a slight danger of the girls outshooting the men next year(?). According to present signs the Women ' s Athletic Association is destined to a brilliant future. With basket-ball and tennis well established, track and hockey, and perhaps baseball too will be the next sports tackled. Several obstacles must still be surmounted — the matter of finances for one — but these will, with a little time and patience, soon be ironed out. 174] Tlie Junior Prom Gomniittee M.

Parker The Rossbourg Club OFFICERS Emanuel Zalesak ___ __ _ President Wilton Anderson Vice-President John Wilson Secretary DwiGHT Walker Treasurer Resume of the Social Season HE social season this year has been an extremely brilHant one. The year opened with the President ' s reception being held in the Richie Gym- nasium. It was well attended and wonderfully arranged. The Rossbourg Club Dances have been a success. This year ' s committee has exerted an effort to out-do the dances given by the Club during previous years. They have been successful in getting good music, artistic decorations, and tasteful refreshments. In all of these they have suc- ceeded in their efforts. We have however missed the formal Rossbourg Dance that has heretofore usually been given before spring. Even though the Club has given it later this year, judging from the success of the previous dances it is bound to be crowned with the same laurels. The Junior Prom was one of the most splendid ever given in the history of the University. No efforts were spared in selecting the best music; the most appreciated, lasting, and beautiful favors; artistic decorations; also appealing and tasty refreshments. The Prom was well attended. I am sure every upper classmen tried to bring the best looking girl he knew. It would have been a great task for any judge of beauty to pick out the best dressed and prettiest. The Sophomore and Freshman Proms were also well arranged and successful, judging from the many favorable comments heard about the campus. We also, at this time, feel sure that the Junior-Senior German will be equalh- as splendid. Every university should have a certain amount of social life on its campus. It makes for a better feeling among undergraduates, graduates, and faculty. Maryland is not lacking in this quality. We have had much of the social atmos- phere on the campus this year. Besides the Rossbourg Club Dances, and Proms, there have been fraternity dances, house parties, tea dances, musicales, and teas. These being held at the girls ' dormitories, or off the campus at the various frater- nity houses. It is hoped that some day an effort will be made to carry out a custom that has now become a tradition at many universities. It is that of having particular week-ends set aside for fraternity house parties. Let us hope for more social activities on the part of our fraternities. The seniors, as they pass out of the gate this year, may look back up the road of the year that lies behind them and have dreams and visions of a brilliant social year that has closed. Its recollection should remain with them as a precious gem in the jewel box of memory. We trust that the senior and juniors to be, have been keen observers and wil make an effort to make succeeding years as brilliant or better, if possible — to make their proms, dances, teas, etc, just as gay and splendid. To the seniors we hope that their future walk along life ' s road will be strewn with flowers of happiness and joy up to the altar of success. 1801 1925 pUBLI filp .€ f4 : n 1925, iM - MH»ia«iTiiiiil Faculty Goniniittee on Student Publications Maude McKenney Chairman William Hottel Advisor M.

The " Diamondback " A weekly periodical by the students of what is now the University of Mary- land was first presented in the year 190S when the institution was known as the Maryland Agricultural College. This publication was known as the " Triangle. " In 1914, however, it became the " M. A. C. Weekly. " In 1916, when the ins titu- tion became the Maryland State College, the name of the periodic al was changed to " The Maryland State Review. " The name was again changed in 1921 when the institution became the University of Maryland: first to " The l niversity Review; " and finally in 1921 the name, " Diamondback " wa tion. las gi en to the publica- The name " Diamondback " comes from the name of the noted animal of Maryland, the " Diamondback Terrapin, " a species of which no other state can boast. Some of the many men who have been popular in making the " Diamondback " a success are R. N. Young, Robert Crain, Jr., A. S. Wardwell, S. R. Newell, W. S. Crooks, A. Block, Leroy Mackert, Ralph Chase, Charles Geist and J. I. ' White, who is now Editor-in-Chief. The ' Reveille " The Reveille was first conceived as an idea by the Class of ' 97 when in its Junior year. The class realized the need of a yearbook and labored with h onest efforts in behalf of its accomplishment, but failed. Upon becoming Seniors, " undaunted by the failure of the preceeding year, the class again entered upon the work with renewed vigor " and the first Reveille appeared in the year 1897. The College at that time was known as the Maryland Agricultural College. The discipline was very militaristic and a word well known to the students was the name given to the bugle call early in the morning, rousing them from peaceful slumber to begin the day ' s labor. So it was decided by the Class of ' 97 to call the year book the Reveille, signifying the beginning of a work that they hoped would be carried on by the succeeding classes. Their hopes have been realized and the Reveille, with few exceptions, has been published every year, from that time until the year 1921, when the College Park branch and the Baltimore branch of the University of Maryland joined their efforts in publishing the " Terra Mariae. " The " Terra Mariae " was again published in 1922, but in 1923 and 1924, because of some financial difificulty, the College Park branch of the University did not assist in the publication. This year ' s Reveille, like its original predecessor is again the result of determined efforts put forth following an unsuccessful attempt at publication. Accordingly, the word Reveille is once more a particularlv appropriate title. Henceforth it is to be hoped, the College Park branch of the University of Mary- land will never be without its annual.

" Membership in this club is limited to those who by a series of " try-outs, " prove their interest and ability either in dramatics or stage technique. The club plans to give two or three full length dramas or recognized standard comedies each scholastic besides various one-act plays which the club anticipates presenting at student assemblies, beginning next Fal Two years ago Dramatics at the University of Maryland were thriving under conditions which would ha e brought great discouragement had it not been for a small group of earnest and loyal members of the Dramati c Club, under the direc- tion of Professor C. S. Richardson. They resolved that the organization should grow and begin to gain the recognition that drama in college deserves. " All-Of-A-Sudden Peggy " and " What Happened To Jones " were the two performances given that year, with a set of screens, doors, windows, and the usual furniture borrowed for the occasion. After this, X ' ictor Kerney, who has had e.xperience on the professional stage, as an actor and director, became assistant to Professor Richardson. .Strenuous rehearsals were conducted and the production of " Reincarnations of 3023 B. C. " proved the success of Maryland dramatics. Engineers of the graduating class constructed mechanical devices for the opening of the tomb wall; others painted scenery and made properties; worked on curtains and costumes and painted and applied the jeweled garments; while others worked on the electrical etTects. The next year courses were offered in dramatic art and stage technique as a part of the college curriculum. In spite of conflicting schedules a large number of students took the courses, which proved very successful. On " Drama Night " the plays (presented were: " The Maker of Dreams, " a fantasy; " Hyacinths, " a domestic drama; and the " Wind of Allah, " a tragedy of the lives of three lepers. This night ' s productions were triumphant successes and were repeated in response to numerous requests. Last year, since there were no accomodations, only a platform with a rpw of footlights for a stage, many physical and mechanical handicaps, no opportunity to provide permanent equipment or stage setting because of the auditorium ' s general utility purpose, no storage rooms, and very meager dressing rooms; a new plan had to be adopted. A remo able and portable-pipe frame work was erected, from which hangs the cyclorama curtain, which was made and painted by members of the class. Screens, curtains, doors, windows, etc. are among the stage properties now owned by the club, as a result of their own work. " RoUo ' s Wild Oat " and " Kempy " were also presented that year. They were entirely successful. This year, organization difficulties combined with the need for a full-time coach has pre ' ented the living up to its schedule. At the time of the Reveille ' s going to press, the Club is about to present " The Charm School, " a three-act comedy of proven merit by Alice Duer Miller and Robert Milton. Rehearsals point to a success that should lead to the subsequent presentation of another piece in June.

This idea won immediate support among those with ocal and instru- mental ability, and, in May, 1924, Maryland Opera Club became an actuality. Today, with a membership of approximately fifty, it is considered one of the most flourishing student activities on the hill. Two operatic performances, with a third " in the making " as this article was going to press, is the organization record to date. First in their repetoire was " Carmelita, " a colorful gypsy operetta which the club produced in June week of 1924, under the direction of Professor Louis Goodyear, who had written the libretto. That performance, coming at the time it did, drew one of the largest audiences of the year. But the success of " Carmelita " with its charming melodies, versatile songsters and dancers, proved more than momentary. That fall a special reciuest came from the student body and patrons without College Park, to repeat the operetta. A second performance was therefore gi en the following November, and, let it be said, before another crowded house. Mrs. Anne Stewart, lyric soprano, sang the role of " Carmelita, " the gypsy princess, while Katherine Baker was the " Rosita. " Both young women were applauded for their solo work. Mrs. Stewart will be remembered for her " A Gypsy Maiden I. " Katherine Baker was hailed as a true " prima donna " when she sang " The Song of the Nightingale, " a favorite selection of concert singers. Douglas Burnside sang opposite Mrs. Stewart in the role of Don Carlos. Encouraged by the hearty reception of their first production the embryo Martinelli ' s and Jeritza ' s ambitiously selected the famous operetta " Erminie " for their next pubfic appearance. This time, Katherine Baker was cast in the stellar role. Although the early publication of the Reveille will not permit a review of the operetta which was to be given in May, it might be added here that all plans made, together with the enthusiastic rehearsals, indicated that " Erminie " was destined to be the most artistic presentation given on the auditorium stage. Credit for the successful launching of the Maryland Opera Club in a large measure goes to Professor Goodyear, Mr. and Mrs. .Stewart, and Miss Elizabeth Swenk who have spent many hours modeling an organization that should be of lasting worth to the college. Director Goodyear said he hoped the club would soon be in a position where it could present several operas each year. He particularly had in mind the Gilbert and Sulli an light operas, and similar selections re i ed recently by the inimitable DeWolf Hopper. Some of these plans may sound ambitious: but to Maryland Opera Club members they are only the beginning of higher aims. 193] i) " CARMELITA " Cast of Characters Carmelita Anne Stewart Nita Marie Massicot Rosita Katherine Baker John..

Dr. Homer C. House Director of Music. R. HOUSE, besides being the head of the English Department has, for five years, been in charge of the musical activities at the University. It has been largely through his untiring efforts that the Glee Club has become one of the most successful societies at Mary- land. Dr. House has also been the organizer and leader of the University chorus; an organization that has had as its special fimction the annual presentation of a Festival of Music. On these occasions the campus has been given a taste of music of high calibre. That musical organizations of all kinds have nourished so markedly at the University is doubtless due to the stimulation of Dr. House and the talent that he has so effectively brought together.

House; and according to all reports the songsters have been highly successful in their efforts both artistically and financially. The Glee Club is an important factor in the life of the University aside from its purpose of entertainment, it serves the two-fold end of making the singers acquainted with the state and of affording residents of the State an opportunity of learning of the work of the University. The members of the club, traveling from town to town in a large omnibus, made their annual tour during the latter part of the Christmas holiday season. The musicians presented their program in a number of the larger towns of Western Maryland, besides giving a concert in Haynesboro, Pennsylvania. This program, about which the gleemen are very enthusiastic, was inaugurated by Dr. House at the time he assumed his present connection with the University. Besides the concerts given on the Christmas tour, entertainments have been presented by the singers many times during the scholastic year in Washington and near-by places. From the first measures of the spirited march-song " Onward, " by Geibel, the opening number; to the thrilling strains of " Maryland, My Maryland; " the Club ' s program consisting of modern, classic, and college selections has proved ery popular wherever given. 197] Professor Charles Richardson Frank Lemon Walter Bromley; President, Student Assembly Edward Evans; President, New Mercer Literary Society Joseph Macko; President, Poe Literary Society j LL kinds of inter-collegiate public speaking comes under the management of the Council of Oratory and Debate, consisting of three students and two members of the faculty. L ' nder the constitution of this organization the president of each of the two literary societies and the president of the student assembly automatically constitute the student membership. These three select two members of the faculty to be affiliated with them. This Council was organized in 1922, and since that time has had charge of all inter-collegiate debates and oratorical contests. It was also through the influence of the council that the Public Speaking Club at the University of Maryland was organized. The Council of Oratory and Debate has been compelled to limit the scope of inter-collegiate debating on account of lack of funds, there being no money avail- able to pay the expenses of contestants on trips to other colleges. The Maryland debating teams have lead, however, contests with St. Johns College, Johns Hopkins I ' niversity, Penn State and the program this year includes debates with George Washington and Oglethorpe Uni ersities. 198] 1925 r-— — - -- " i- ' irst Team — (Front row) Clarke Beach, Joseph Macko, John Milncrney. Second Team — (Back row) Kenneth Petrie, Tom Browne, Leo Croffy (not in picture) HE two teams were selected by a preliminary contest, in which there were ten entrants. The Varsity Team is now preparing for debates with the Uni ' ersity of Georgia and Oglethorpe University. There is no reason why Mary- land should not be able to carry off honor from these affairs. Most of the debaters have had no little experience before entering the University of Maryland; and one, Macko, has more than once publicly demonstrated his ability here — he is the holder of one of the inter-literary society debate medals.

The Editors The Faculty HE word " Faculty " comes from the Latin, " facilis, " meaning easy, and probably refers to a position as an instructor. Messrs. Funk and Wag- nails give it as a word synonymous with " ability, " although it is utterly ' nconceivable how such an obsolete definition has found its way into an otherwise good lexicon. Dating back to the period of the Captivity in Egypt, and more recently to the Spanish Inquisition, which has left traces of its influence f)n its presentday meaning, the word, " faculty, " has a grand and gruesome history. Being naturally interested in antiques and ancient history, we have com- Pyled a history of the learned faculty at our own Penitentiary — which word, by the way, is a perfectly good synonym of llniversity, as any student will agree to its modern usage. At any rate, the following history will reveal some of our outstanding Faculty Members. In the beginning, the babe of education was cradled in Morrill Castle by such spectres of the past as the Tall-pharaoh and one Richard ' s-son who were secured at a great ex-Spence. Later, there came a Peer ' s-son whose very name strikes terror into the unwary freshman; but fails to Creese the tranquil atmos- phere of the engineers, who are tutored by John ' s-son. On the Mount is a House, which was built by a Carpenter, and from its doors one may see the Appleman as he Gambles over the Lee, and strives to sell his Lemons and Herring for a Proffitt. We also Reed that in Picken a Good-year in which to fish, for the Wiley Schad, one must be endowed with that True-wit which belonged to Isaac Walton, and which a great many of our modern anglers for knowledge, best known as students, are prone to use when they seek to enter the Temple of knowledge that may lead over the long Spann to the Whitehonse. Military INCE its inception a few years ago when coeds became the latest at our grand and glorious University, the " HILLTOP-GUARDS " have gained for themselves a most enviable record. Theirs is the noble duty of protecting and guarding those who dwell in the various strongholds on the hill. Their motto is: " Get ' em — Guard ' em — Keep ' em! " Which is often translated to mean ' ' Love — honor — and obey! " The following will point out their characteristics, and they may be judged accordingly: PAGE GARDNER holds the office of distinction. He is Major by virtue of his consistency and capability of " putting the thing across. " ED MELCHIOR still holds the rank of buck-private because of his auto- matic forgetfulness. He thinks the Practice House is the " Red Seal Rubber " shoe store. JEAN BRAYTON is the Transportation Officer. His specialities are suit- cases, wheelbarrows and trunks, and he runs an express service between the Correction House and the carline. DIZZY ALDRICH is the Installation Officer because of his ingenuity in conceiving of and installing a receiving station at Gerneaux Hall so that he could keep in more constant communication and that a greater number could hear his broadcasting. BOB MORRIS and ED THOMPSON spend most of their time in the Guard House, serving time for wagon busting and toe-treading. (Two things cannot occupy the same space at the same time). WHITEFORD tries to make time while these boys are in the Guard House. RUSSEL STRITE is the Captain. He knows the ropes, at least so far as Hyattsville and Mt. Rainier movies go. WALTER BROMLEY is the boy that handles the cannons (during the night) and evidently holds Y. M. C. A. meetings while serving guard near the flagpole. HENRY WALTER is the Chaplain. He goes to the house of worship every night. JOHNNY WILSON is the Scout Officer. A good scout knows his grounds. That ' s why Johnny scouts on the Hill and in Southern Maryland so much. FRED BULL is the Officer of the Day — but he serves at night. Each morning finds him at Bill White ' s filling station. CARVILLE BOWEN is the exclusixe Second Lieutenant. He has reached this distinction by his poise and individuality. ANDY ANDERSON is the Advisory Officer. His experience places him in the position of aiviti " advice to the lovelorn. BOB STRAKA is the Intervening Officer. At least his contemporary in Baltimore finds hard travel. ED TENNY furnishes the entertainment for the damsels of the fort. He is a circus. They say he is a scream — what else is he, if not? CHIEF BEATTY and MAC McGLONE are still in the ranks, altho they have been thrown out of Practice House occasionally. JOHN MORRIS is the Clean-Up-Kid. He can be seen around the Cor- rection House immediatelv after each meal.

One by one the gallant nobles ride to the doors of the castle, park their gallant " Goulashes " and are admitted by no less personage than the Princess Herself. After they enter they are rewarded by the ision of their chosen lady daintily " tripping " down the broad stairs (usually from 1.5 to 30 minutes after). From the stairs to the coveted place in the " Get-together room " is but a few scant steps — and then Act II — Same Place — one Hour Later While the three-legged, period phonograph grinds off " Somebody loves me " there is a general movement to positions of more comfort — then. . . . Act III — Same Place — 10.30 the Same Evening As the lights burn low the clanging of the great Bell of the castle — a rushing for the door — hurried partings, the rescue of the " Goulashes " and peace rests once more upon the hill after an e entful (or une entful?) evening. Author ' s note: — I have no other aim than to portray the admirable character of the work that the dramatic club has been doing throughout its past years and to express a sincere hope that the future will be as successful in the entertainment that its members afford. :2701 FROM " ROMEOWD WHERE JULIE:T " X FROM OI ' R MUSICAL REVIEW, " KELLY ' S KOMICS 1925 — • " — -- - Fraternities CRESTS Shape — Like a Drinking Cup Quadrant 1 — Onion — This shows the strength of the fraternity.

Frater " — from the from the Greek — -or " Knights of the - " Eye-Tappa-Keg " RATERNITY is a combination of the two words Latin — " Frothy " — " sends forth beer " and " nity ' " Nighty " — a word closely related to " Pajama " - Beer " — from which the first Greek letter fraternity- was originated. Closely allied to it, is the sister word " Sorority, " a combination of the English feminine " Sore " and the French " risque. " The original sorority " If-Pappa-Nu " was but recently rex ' ived on the Campus. History tells us that Cain and Abel were the first Presidents of Ri al Frats, while King Solomon ' s wives founded the first sorority from which sprang our present daily newspapers. Among notable greek-letter fraternity men of the past are: — Napoleon, Wellington, Bismarck, Caesar and the Kaiser. In days of old, when Knights were bold And had a fight to settle, They donned their armor, took their swords And trusted it to metal, But in this free and peaceful age Whene ' er one needs must scrap. He bares his trusty " Jeweled Pin " And leaves it to his " Frat.

" ) Our hair is gray, but not with years; Nor grew it white In a single night — but four days; As other sisters will tell — my dears. Our limbs are bowed, tho not with toil; But rusted with a vile repose: For we have been the S. C. ' s spoil; And ours has been the fate of those To whcjm the goodly earth and air Are banned and barred — forbidden fair! We were eleven happy maids, Now accounted ele en knaves. X)v (Does the unbalanced mind need to apologize for its plagiarisms?) Apple Sauce What is more pleasant than to sit by an open fire and dream of the days gone by? To think of the old home and Mother, the old house with green blinds, the shrubbery in spring time? It all comes back to me. I remember how we hungry boys would dash in at meal times. I can see that old table, laden with its many wonderful dishes: and among these the one I liked so well, apple sauce — apple sauce as Mother made it, flavored with cinnamon and butter. Those days are gone forever! Here at College Park, apple sauce is ser ' ed, but not as Mother made it. It is served on Mondays and Fridays in Morrill Hall — although served in good English style, it is flavored with lemon. [2731 1925 To A. 0. H. No other eyes have ere met mine That have had that deep, yet simple lure: Eyes maddening as age-old wine ; And yet so clear and pure. No other lips I ere did press Were moistened so with honey-dew, As parting thus in a caress, Mine own sank softly through. No other breast ere pillowed me With such romatic swell, As if within a restless sea A billow rose and fell. No other arms about me thrown So heavily on my shoulders bore, As if a life that stood alone Could stand alone, no more No other heart I ere have met That I have carved to earn. With all my soul I love her!
