It seeks to capture the spirit of the fine book through the use of a symbolic medal- lion that sets its style and depicts its theme. Executed by Mr. Dale Nichols, one of America ' s foremost con- temporary artists, the TERRAPIN ' S design presents a simplified tree — represent- ing knowledge — its branches and roots gripping an open book symbolic of man ' s rec- ords and research, all within the bounds of a concentric circle of two diametric divi- sions, one displaying the rays of the sun on its field of white, the other showing scattered stars on a field of color. Its allegorical import portrays the expansion of man ' s knowledge through roots deeply planted in and about his recorded discoveries as an endless process throughout the eternal time-cycle of day and night. It is to such improvement of man ' s lot that the Univer- progress; it is to the Univer- sity ' s forward surge that the TERRAPIN devotes itself. Ghe G( errab n I 940 ROBERT C. RICE GEORGE L.

O ' CONOR GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF MARYLAND The Physical yispect of a BOOK OF PROGRESS ' ' T X EEPLY engraven into University annals will be entered the hap- J) I penings of the school year just past. For though 1940 marked ' - neither auspicious anniversary of state or school, its days recorded the realization of many phases of Maryland ' s program of progress. Most conspicuous of campus advancements was the physical transformation wrought by the completion of seven modern buildings and extensive alterations to many of the established structures. It is to portray this great change, to show bywords and VI EWS the dominance of these new edifices over those they replaced, that the editors of the 1940 Terrapin present its first section. Wh HiLE not as physically impres- sive as the permanent buildings adorning the campus, no less notable are the classes them- selves. For each class, through the effect of its increased enrollment, through the progress of its individual members in their scholastic, athletic, and social attainments, plays an integral role in the whole advancing order. The depiction of each undergraduate class then, its members, and their interests — pyramiding one on the other through the four years of college — embodies the next four divisions of this volume. L .NSCRIBED on the pages of the FRESHMAN section are events that will ever remain etched in the memories of those who have passed the opening mile- stone in their collegiate careers. An attempt has been made to capture the first bewilder- ment of adjustment to new surroundings, the tiresome, though thrilling, ritual of registra- tion, the indignities suffered at the hands of belligerent sophomores, the pleasures of Orientation Week. Movement toward the more pur- poseful undertaking of study is recounted in the Freshman ' s initial contact with his faculty advisers, while his ventures into organized society receive due note in the story of campus fraternities and soror- ities. And finally, as if in summation of the growth of a binding spirit for the Class of 1943, its athletic triumphs, its aggressive officers, and its social successes close this section, portraying a year of glorious adaptation. A. PT material for introduction to the Sophomore class history was furnished by the victory of the second-year men over their arch Freshmen rivals in the annual tug-of-war, for thus was climaxed the term-long induc- tion ceremony of the unruly Frosh into Maryland ' s traditional ranks. But a more stirring recollection to the SOPHOMORE than traditional victory, springing from the same group feeling that effected the interclass triumph, was the deep-seated pride of the second-year athlete in his initial Varsity efforts and the genuine interest of the non-participant in the attainments of his fellows. Hence, herein are contained all things athletic. Appropriate finis is written to the division by a recital of the achievements of Sophomore officers and the pleasures of the annual prom. Th .HE arrival of JUNIOR year sped the departure of aimless indecision, for here was a year with a purpose. Because the ambitions and constructive labors of their own Junior staff members struck closest home, the Terrapin editors open the fourth section of this volume with a picturization of publication activ- ities during 1940. The many contributions to the progress of campus organizations also from Juniors, whose every glance rested on future Senior laurels, affords reason for the recitation of club attainments within these pages. Yet, the efforts of the third-year student passed not without reward; rather, witness the indications on the rolls of University honor societies, presented throughout the pages of the Junior Division, of their ready acceptance of active and deserving Juniors. A final extollment of class leaders and the climactic Prom- enade move the Terrapin into the realm of the departing Senior. A. .LWAYS to the SENIOR has fallen a heritage of leadership — supervision over the Student Government Association, the Men ' s League and the Women ' s League, and the training of a smart and alert military corps. But, though burdened with greatest responsibility, the Senior Class attained fullest honors, its most illustrious members being elected to the ranks of Omicron Delta Kappa and Mortar Board, its most studious to Phi Kappa Phi. So it is that the 1940 Terrapin interprets the essence of Senior activity. There then remains but the listing of graduating Seniors, the legend of June Week, a final tribute to six of Maryland ' s sons to whom past June Weeks have signified true commencement of voyages to success and fame — and the Terrapin ' s message of progress of school and student has run the gamut of its course. IMENSIONS still determine extent of growth. By such measure, Maryland continued her march of progress in 1940. Buildings mush- roomed, faculties expanded to fill the build- ings, and an ever-increasing student body rushed to enroll — we were on the way. t HE PAST Overwhelming has been the physical transformation, most evident symbol of progress, on the University campus during 1940. For, during the year the ad- ministrative offices of the University, the Colleges of Home Economics and Arts and Sciences, all moved gratefully into spacious modern quarters, the Col- lege of Agriculture embraced a completely-equipped Poultry Building, resident students welcomed a new men ' s dormitory group and dining hall, and the en- tire student body looked with approval on a well- ordered Infirmary. It is this sudden surge of progress that the following section of the 1940 Terrapin at- tempts to depict. ROSE PRESE?iT GRAHDEUR occupied a pos a commandi HE first administration build ' ng, which burned in 191 2, present Library and enjoyed campus of that day. The new administration building stands on a similarly commanding site but faces a campus now replete with impressive new buildings. It houses the beautiful new offices of the President and the other adm inistra- tive officials. The presence of the Student Government Association and publications offices, the book store, and post office, provides an atmosphere of informality to the administration build- ing which the students rightly feel is their own. 10 Afiner Administration Building . . . so that University officials may better direct the progress of the institution. was given ove status as a o the early twenties when he old Chemistry Building omics College, Maryland ' s was assured. The new Home Economics building, occupying a predominant niche in the campus square, is proof of the continued growth of the college. Its entrance, with wide carved doors and distinctive facing, leads to an interior made equally attractive by the unusual color scheme of the walls — one which is keyed to light cedar with accents of terra-cotta, dark brown, blue and green. Large display windows, modern kitchens, and laboratories are all equipped to meet the requirements of an advancing scientific curriculum. 12 A new Home Economics Building . . . complete with up-to-date lab- oratory and kitchen equipment.

The changes which have been wrought in the infirmary have not only heightened its appearance, but its efficiency as well.

With its wards, private room, doctors ' and nurses ' offices, it now truly assumes the role of a hospital. 16 A modern Infirmary . . . bringing to Maryland students greater medical facilities. 17 housed in a sm OR twenty five years the poultry department was the north side of the campus. Now, for the first Time in the history of the University, there has been erected an adequate poultry building. This new Georgian Colonial structure conforms to the architectural style of the campus and is entirely modern in facilities for housing classrooms, research laboratories, and staff offices. The department is not only in a better position to serve a constantly increasing student enrollment, but is able to offer to the practical poultrymen a well-rounded educational and research program.

Fifteen years Tat at sifuation became a reality, and now a veritably new dining hall marks the southwest corner of the campus. The require- ment for additional space has been met by an enlargement of dining facilities adequate for the accommodation of seven hundred students. To the cafeteria has gone a proportional share of renovation. The appearance of the dining hall has not been sacrificed to practicability, for the six columns commanding the entrance to its new section assure it a comparable position with the other impressive campus structures. 22 An enlarged and renovated Dining Hall . . . increasing dining, banquet, and cafeteria accommodations. 23 24 And J iow the People They lS [a e Our T ew Campus Live 25 ROM city and country, from high school and prep school you came to the University. Your past accomplishments meant little, for. with your Freshman companions, you were only entering the collegiate path to your goal — and it was a hard goal to reach. rOU FROSH, BUT . . . . The bewilderment of arrival, the formality of reg- istration, the chiding of Sophomores, and the frivolity of orientation affairs together made a week of many moods for the entering Freshman. But even when the serious business of study with a kindly acu ?y began, a restlessness seemed to prevail, an excitement that needed only the rush attentions of campus fraternities and sororities to set the pulses quickening. And when, with haughty spirit, behind their officers, the Frosh filed in promenade, it became readily apparent that the Class of ' A3 had found itself. 26 rou KKiEw rou were a college mah n he Frosh THET CAME, THET SAW, THEY CONCURRED that Orientation Vee was a fine idea to ma e them feel at home . . . Yo Calm before the storm The gathering of the clan -Ou ' re right — we have something here, " said the upperclassman as he pointed the campus out to the freshman, just in town to matriculate — at least that ' s what the registrar ' s letter said. The rats left home with a sense of fore- boding about hazing, only to find their sentence postponed for several days until the upperclassmen could return to the campus from Ocean City. And so, they settled down to moving in their luggage and the cakes they received as " going away presents. " Now some found their roommates and various members of their families already on hand, and so each in- troduced himself, told where he was from, and how long he had been on campus. Others entered an empty room and straightway proceeded to select the bet- ter bed and dresser. If the freshmen were inclined to in- quire as to where registration would be, they didn ' t bother after a glance at the Gym Armory, for obviously things were happening there — but just what, was a question. Judging from the time they stood on the front steps, nothing much would happen, but, as is usually the case, 28 Pictures even waiting lines move. The inside of the Armory bore a marked resemblance to the New York Stock Exchange. As the freshmen gazed upon this scene while waiting to have their pictures taken, they could only distinguish a mass of hurrying people, some of whom apparently knew where they were going. The " to be laughed at later " " pictures taken, the freshmen must needs brave the impos- sible confusion below, and with a dazed look and faltering step they started down the aisle to the right marked " Arts and Sciences, " " " ' Engineering, " " etc. The ac- tual registration wasn ' t so difficult. In fact, according to the professors, all fresh- men took this English and that science, and so before they knew it, they were signed up for chemistry and told to go pay their bills. Then in none too rapid succession, they received their dining hall cards, P.O. box numbers, library rules, and a " don ' t forget to carry it with you " M Book. The freshmen were to learn in short order that there was no escaping tests in college. The first afternoon, Wednesday, September 13, there were language quali- fication exams; the second afternoon, English classification tests; and the third 29 M Book Staff — Standing: Sargcant, Kcrwin, McFarland, Sealed: Kemp, CJhandlcr, editor, Shirey, aiden afternoon, those amusing aptitude tests. Very austere looking teachers and stu- dents kept an eagle eye upon them, as they drew lines through " ain ' ts " and in- dicated that " a ship is to water as a car is to land. " Dinners at the Dining Hall were really very interesting and cultural — not at all the eat and run affairs of which the fresh- men had heard. There was always a head table with guest speakers and campus moguls to look at. My, but those upper- classmen were clever the way they could greet the freshmen without an obvious quake of stage fright. Dr. Jenkins taught them how to study in one easy lesson, and Coach Dobson made sportsmanship a freshman ideal. The sense of foreboding about hazing became an embarrassing reality when the upperclassmen returned. The freshmen girls were treated leniently. In fact, about all they had to endure was the once over. The Diamondback cautioned the freshmen boys not to buy their radiators, but it did not tell them about buying a chance on a raccoon coat. Consequently, some fresh- men boys were gullible enough to believe that perhaps their two-bits and luck would entitle them to the coat and the honor of walking with the frosh president at Homecoming. The sophomores were obviously very particular about the ap- pearance of their shoes, and no one but Food lor thousht 30 No cribs for this lest Branded Rats Reward for spirit the freshman could fill the role of boot- black. It was carrying matters a bit far too, when they didn ' t even furnish their own shoe polish. To say that the wearing of rat hats and " no cutting campus " were enforced in the spirit of fun and to be enjoyed by all was one thing, but it was another to say that paddling was in the same spirit. It was a very one-sided affair — but as the juniors reminded them — there was always another year. The S.G.A. meeting was comfortably informal, or relaxed, as they say at Mary- land. Class officers welcomed the fresh- men by saying the same thing a half- dozen different ways. Some of them were funny. The songs and cheers were thrill- ing, but it sounded as if the upperclass- men should not forget their M Books either. The meeting broke up early, only to be continued at the Grill. Forsooth, it was most amazing how many people that place could hold. The President ' s Reception was a very definite clima.x to the week ' s activities. There were so many freshmen enrolled 31 Do as I say, not as I do Marvland, ive re all behind ou that the affair must needs be held in the Coliseum, which, with the addition of the orchestra, catering tables, and palms, as- sumed an unusually receptive appear- ance. The receiving line — a very long one too — was inescapable, for the committee of upperclassmen who helped with the re- ception just wouldn ' t let anyone ease through to the dance floor. Perhaps they knew best too, for shaking hands with Dr. Byrd and the faculty receiving with him wasn ' t such an ordeal after all. The dance which followed was made up of promenades, Paul Joneses, and snake and spot dances. Just when a boy had met the belle, or otherwise, of the evening, a whistle blew, and he was off to a new conquest. When 12 o ' clock came, every tired freshman was ready to call it a day. On the morrow they were able to take it easy, for there was nothing of importance on the program until Monday, when they really got into the swing of college life. Then, they walked into their classrooms and saw the professors, not in formal dress as at the reception, and not with their party smiles, but in the clothes and smiles thev would wear until June.

The curricula are so constructed that a student may achieve during the first two years in the Lower Division, a broad cultural founda- tion for any professional or vocational career. In the third and fourth years, designated the Upper Division, each stu- dent completes a closely unified group of courses leading toward vocational, pro- fessional, or cultural goals. To students of other colleges in the University, the College of Arts and Sciences offers train- ing in fundamental subjects, both cul- tural and scientific, which should permit them to acquire the perspective necessary for liberal culture and public service.

During the year, equipment was added in all departments, the faculty was en- larged, teaching methods were improved, and research work in cooperation with Federal, State, and industrial organiza- tions was expanded. The aim of the courses offered is to produce graduates who will not only be well trained in the fundamentals of en- gineering, but who will become good citi- zens as well as good engineers. The work of the College of Engineering continues to merit the approval of the engineering accrediting agencies.

Now in 1940 we are moving into a new building planned es- 37 pecially for home economics. The majority of the graduates in home economics use their training as home makers, which is the first aim of all home economics education. Those who use their training professionally are holding positions as teachers in schools, clothing specialists in department stores, interior decorators, directors of food service, and home economists with newspapers, radio stations, and magazines.

The College of Education of the Uni- versity of Maryland has one dominant aim — to serve the people of the state by service to the schools of the state. All other functions which the College may perform are incidental to this main ob- jective. Carrying on research in educa- tion, preparing teachers, supervisors, and administrators for the technical phases ot their work, and helping particular school systems to solve the problems of their own areas are duties of the College of Educa- tion merely because they are things that have to be done to achieve the number one goal — the best educational service which Marvland can give her children. 38 AND COLLEGE OF EDUCATION AIDES . . . i «w Glen D.

Training is also provided in insurance and real estate. Close relationship with practical busi- ness is emphasized through internship courses, industrial tours, and activities of the Collegiate Chamber of Commerce.

Recent additions of outstanding schol- ars to the graduate faculty- and improve- ments in library resources have made pos- sible a considerable expansion of graduate work at the University and an increase in the departments offering work leading to the Ph.D. degree. Cooperative arrange- ments with the Federal Research Center at Beltsville and with the laboratories of the Bureaus of Mines and Fisheries on the campus ha ' e added materially to facilities for graduate work. The recent establishment of fellowships by industrial firms and the Federal Government for cooperative research projects has given outside support to graduate and research work.

Ihe position of Dean of Faculty was created at the beginning of the collegiate year 1938. The underlying purpose of this innovation was to bring the faculty and administration in closer harmony. Although it is difficult to define the specific duties of the Dean of the Faculty, it may be said that the main function of the office is to give advice on faculty and administrative problems. Also, the ser- vices of the Dean of the Faculty are al- ways at the disposal of the students, staff, and parents. DEAH OF METi GEARY F. EPPLET Geary F. Eppley, Dean of Men.

The chairmanship of the Student Life Committee is his most important single responsiblity, for in this position he is able to promote and control campus ac- tivities, and grant student aid. The Dean of Men is also charged with helping student government organizations keep within the bounds of their budgets. 41 DEAN OF WOMEN ADELE H. STAMP Adele Hagner Stamp, Dean of Women.

Ihe department of Dean of Women is organized like other administrative de- partments — the dean is the head and is responsible for the program of work. It is difficult to define the duties. However, the more important ones are : officially representing women ' s interests; helping students to make academic adjustments; guiding students ' social affairs; super- ' ising dormitories and off-campus houses ; placing housemothers in dormitories, so- rorities, and fraternities; counseling in- dividual students; and advising and co- operating with women ' s organizations.

However, such tactics as these were never resorted to on the Maryland campus. The fraternity, during rushing season, merely told him to make their house his house, and to steer clear of all snakes-in-the- grass (other fraternity men). The lowly " rat " was completely as- tounded by the number of men in the dif- ferent frats who possessed long strings of keys. How was he to know that these were borrowed from some alumnus for the occasion, and the complete assortment of cups, trophies, banners, and medals were acquired in the same way to accomplish the same purpose. For two weeks the prospect was given all sorts of consideration, his schedule was arranged, buildings and classrooms were pointed out, rides were furnished to and ( ' aitinii for the kill For scholarship atch the change to Cancels 44 from classes, he lunched at the house, dates were arranged, and dances and smokers were held for his benefit. A routine similar to this went on for two weeks until Silence Day. Then, for the next twenty-four hours the frosh was given a chance to think about the bid that he wanted to accept. When the gloating and " ' sour grapes ' " were over, and after many a pin had been proudly displayed, the tables seemed to be turned. The paddle be- came " the board of education, " ' the house was entered via the back door, shoes were shined for the actives, and he became a dumb, gross, insignificant " goat " who was required to learn the names of the founders and a host o other seemingly worthless facts about the fraternity of his choice. At the beginning of the second se- mester, formal initiation brought forth a new and shiny pin and many " broth- ers " who were entitled to borrow money, clothes, and automobile.

Ihe activities of the Interfraternity Council started with the opening of the fraternity rushing period on the first day of classes and for two weeks the council kept close surveillance over all rushing functions. Following this period it re- vised rush rules for 1940-41. Rushing is to be deferred for six weeks, after which time it will get under way in grand style with a dance at each house on the opening night. losEPH S.

Mem- bers of the University of Maryland Coun- cil were guests of the George Washington Council at their Prom held in the ball- room of the Willard Hotel in Washington and had the pleasure of dancing to the music of Glen Gray and his orchestra. All clubs gave their hearty support to the Interfraternity sing sponsored by the Tri Delts. Held in March in the Agricul- ture Auditorium, the contest assumed a formal air as the participants came dressed in evening dresses and tuxedos. To Kappa Delta sorority went the award for the best group singing. Only the friendliest of rivalry and true sportsmanship prevailed in interfrater- nity athletics.

Woody Herman and " the band that plays the blues " were chosen by social chairman Page Fullington to supply music for the Greek Ball. The Gym- Armory was gaily decorated with blue crepe paper in keeping with the " blues " idiom emphasized by Hermans orchestra. The banners of the clubs, hung from the balcony of the Armory, were symbolic of fraternity life. Occupying a conspicuous position behind the band was the new Interfraternity Council banner. Favors for the evening were wooden replicas of the Interfraternity Council key. During the dance, orchestra leader Herman turned over the microphone to president Merritt, who proceeded to award the much treasured fraternity trophies.

Control of campus publications and mem- bership in the honorary journalistic fraternity, Pi Delta Epsilon, were maintained by Allan Fisher, editor of the Diamondback. and Bob Rice, editor of the Terrapin and vice-presi- dent of the chapter. That the rigors of military training held interest for many of the members was evidenced by the fact that Thomas Riley held the position of lieutenant colonel, and sev- eral other seniors and juniors held lesser posts. Outstanding among the chapter ' s social events were the Founder ' s Day Banquet in March and the annual Carnation Ball, spon- sored in collaboration with chapters at George Washington, St. John ' s, and American Uni- versities. 60 Left to right: Bierer, Lanham.

Delta Sig ' s most talked of dinner was that which they gave to Hal Kemp, an alumnus of another chapter, when he arrived on campus to play for the Christmas Rossbourg. In main- tenance of a national custom, they sponsored the annual Sailors Ball, which has become so well-known as a campus tradition that every coed looks forward to the day when she may attend.

ITIaving merged with Theta Kappa Nu, Lambda Chi Alpha now claims the largest national organization of any fraternity on the hill and ranks third in size among all frater- nal organizations in the country. Led by Nelson Jones, expansion of the fra- ternity was local as well as national. A well- rounded pledge group was attained at the end of rush season, and eight new members were added to the active list during the year. Improvements to the house added meas- urably to the enjoyment of the brothers. Re- decoration of the entire interior brightened surroundings, and a new recording machine and radio led to many pleasant hours of re- laxation.

Ihe past year witnessed the blending of the purple and white of Sigma Alpha Mu with the black and gold of the University of Maryland, for though S.A.M. experienced internal ex- pansion, a fine social season, and the good fortune of securing a new house, its members found time to enter fully into Uni ' ersity life. Dave Abrams, in addition to holding the fraternal reins, maintained his perennial 3.5 average, coached and captained the fencing team, and represented his fraternity on the Hillel Club Student Council. Vlurray Valen- stein served as sports editor of the Diamond- back and capped his record as a member of the committee for each of his class proms by being appointed to the social committee for June Week. Ralph Tyser, circulation manager of the Diamondback, was a lieutenant in the ad- vanced R.O.T.C., and with Murray a member of Pi Delta Epsilon.

Bob Farkus became intramural handball champion though it necessitated defeating three S.A.M. pledges to gain the title, while other intramural sports held interest for Alfred Bernstein and " Colonel " Zinberg. Both Marvin Polikoff, Diamondback sport staff member, and Al Molofsky, sophomore prom committee appointee, reflected Valenstein ' s influence with their choices of endeavor. Sidney Berman and Eugene Fisher rounded out the membership of a literally active group.

Iaking literally the words of their fra- ternity ' s jaunty rouser song, " Tau, boys . . . Is the first to take a place . . . , " the fraters of Tau Epsilon Phi ' s campus chapter during the past school season garnered honors in almost every phase of University activity. Best known among T.E.P. ' s graduating se- niors was " Mickey " Mulitz, former All- American lacrosse star and Varsity basket- bailer. The chapter ' s other athletic luminaries, " Hotsey " Alperstein, 145-pound Varsity bo.xer, Arthur Peregoff, manager of the Varsity ten- nis team, " Scotty " Young, Frosh lacrosse manager, and " Jason " LeFrak, 1939 track manager, all earned their letters.

Especially significant as a mark of de- velopment was the increased interest shown by the members in campus affairs. Burt Borden carried the presidency of Beta Alpha Psi, honorary accounting fraternity, an honor that went hand-in-hand with his status as top ranking man of the College of Com- merce. Managership of the Freshman tennis team added to a well-rounded program. Handling the managing editorship of this year ' s Terrapin consumed the bulk of the school year for George Flax, who was also a member of Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary journal- istic fraternity. With Burt, George was a member of Beta Alpha Psi, holding down the post of secretary-treasurer. Both were senior Left lo right: Shulman, Borden, president, Dorfman Sislen, G.

In other fields Chemist Danny Kaufman knocked the carbon atoms for a well-earned high scholastic average. Agronomist-to-be Sheldon Michaels tempered profitable study with literary effort for the Old Line, and " Hermie " Ehudin, junior Commerce student, unfolded a glib tongue as a member of the Varsity Debate team.

Ihe brothers of Alpha Lambda Tau met for their weekly conclave in a little white house about half way down the hill. The fact that mostof them were daydodgers did not prevent them from taking an active part in man ' campus activities. When Buddy Dieudonne called the meeting to order, he saw a goodly number of uniforms in the crowd. Lacy Hall held down a Junior Officer ' s position in the R.O.T.C., as well as in the Pershing Rifles. Lacy was also a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engi- neers. Secretary Cliff Saltzman, another of the boys in advanced army, was a budding avia- tor. He was one of the favored few on the campus who took the course given by the Civil Aeronautics Authority. John Crone added to the military aspect and name of the club as an officer in the R.O.T.C. The Alpha Lambda Taus did not see much of Bob Mohle during the second semester. He was busy practice teaching and all of his spare moments were spent in the preparation of Left to right: Van Huizen, vice-regent; Coe, treasurer; Dieu- donne. regent ; Saltzman, secretary.

Encouragement by faculty members did much to bolster the interest and enthusiasm of the boys. George W. Fogg of the Library and Charles D. Murphy of the English Depart- ment willingly lent their time and energy toward putting the group on a firm foundation. At the present time Alpha Lambda Tau is one of the smaller clubs on the campus. How- ever, the past few years have shown a marked progressiveness manifested in its sizable pledge classes, and the members are looking forward to a well-established position on the Maryland campus.

The council functioned under the direction of Ann Irvine, pres- ident; Mary Lee Ross, secretary; and Tempe Curry, treasurer. To the representatives of the five national sororities and several local clubs fell the task of revising and ad- ministering rush rules. An institution that has proved its worth in other schools — a Junior Pan- hellenic — was organized by the council. Two pledges of each group met reg- ularly at the different chapter houses, where members explained to the neo- phytes the duties and responsibilities of a college panhellenic council and stressed the importance of friendly relations among the campus sororities. Each Pan-Hel sorority played hostess to members of other groups at the pro- gressive dinner. Later in the evening the pledges joined the actives in invit- ing campus swains to radio dances held in all the houses. . on Boose Legge Vaidcn KKr Curry Woods 78 Sorority Rushing vJn the Sunday afternoon of the Panhellenic Open-Day teas, many a hopeful lass dressed within an inch of her life and stepped appre- hensively on the threshold of an imposing sorority house. The door was opened wide and the members of the sisterhood turned on their charm full blast. For a mad week she was " tead, ' feted, and questioned. Then when her resistance had reached an all-time low, the week-end arrived and she had a chance " to see how the girls really live. " She found herself on a date with a campus big shot who praised dear old T.K.O. and impressed upon her that she was not the " Sigma " type. After harrowing all-night bull sessions in the dorms following the week-end, she came to the end of the rush period. Then, on Pledge Day she aligned herself with the group in which there were the greatest number of coeds her size with cute clothes. . t ' Brinnng in the new Aftermath 79 Kappa Kappa Gamma GAMMA PS I CHAPTER Founded at Monmouth College in 1870 Established at the Uni ' ersity of Maryland in igig MEMBERS: Helen Bedell, Muriel Booth, Alice Cann, Betsy Carson, Tempe Curry, Barbara Davis, Gayle Davis, Charlotte Eisele, Edith Farrington.

The members of Phi Sigma Sigma were active locally in Alpha Lambda Delta, with Mildred Baitz, Bea Shuman, and Molly Tulin represented in the freshman honorary. Mildred Bait " , senior, has been outstanding in the Footlight Club during the past three years. Her varied roles included that of an old lady in Outward Bound, a young Russian in Tovarick, and seventeen-year-old Sydney in Bill of Divorcement. She has also been tapped for Alpha Psi Omega.

Playing the local prep school and freshman cage teams the quinterplets, by virtue of a well balanced team, managed to break a little bet- ter than average on the winning of their ledger. By virtue of a handful of ex-prep school stars in baseball, track, and lacrosse, Terp mentors were given a comfortable feeling in anticipa- tion of national titles in the near future.

" " best described the Class of " 43 during the early part of the first semester. Everything started when the newly elected Freshman Class President, Al Ruppers- berger, announced to the school that the freshmen were no longer going to abide by the traditional " rat rules. " " Upon hearing this statement, the sophomores immediately took measures to preserve the dignity and supremacy of the class. Headed by their prexy. Bill Holbrook, the sophs played barber and gave Rup- persberger a novel Indian haircut. The issue reached a dramatic climax following a freshman meeting when sophs met frosh in a hand-to-hand encounter in front of the Chemistry Building. Following this two-hour feud a temporary truce was de- clared, and the well-known sophomore " law " " was laid down. Spirit at its height Working for publications Out of reach First night out 100 Their Officers . . . The climax of the struggle between classes was finally reached on Home- coming Day. With the tug-of-war came a decided victory for the Sopho- mores. Altogether, the Class of 1943 feels it has shown more spirit than has been expressed on the campus in man ' years. Other officers of the class who were more fortunate in surviving the on- slaught of the Sophomores were ; Ted Caldwell, vice-president; Jacqueline Wilson, secretary ; and Doris Woods, treasurer. Balloons Ruppersbcrger, Wilson, Woods, Caldwell Their From But the smoke had by no means cleared, for on December 8 the frosh precipitated a near riot by their an- nouncement, ' " No stags allowed " to the Freshman Promenade. This issue settled, they at last cast aside their aura of independence, and, to the mu- sic of Matt Matson and his CBS elev- en-piece orchestra, played host to the upperclassmen. Matson had recently played at Catholic and George Wash- ington Universities and had enjoyed increasing popularity in the South. In addition to the vocalizations of Dot Farrell, the University quartet har- monized on popular tunes. DeWitt Smith, general chairman of the Prom, was assisted by the follow- ing committee heads: Ray Grelecki, orchestra ;Marjorie Brock, promenade ; Eileen Carter, decorations; Kathryn Sheely, bids ; Charles Harry and Betty Graham, chaperones. 101 FTER a year at Maryland, finding yourself and the University compatible, you developed definite interests. Foremost rose a new atten- tion to Varsity teams and players, and an even stronger will to win in sport contests. It was not all, but it was an excellent Sophomore criterion. ERE AK ARDEJiT OLD LIKER A hearty handclasp from familiar companions, a realization that he was on the transmitting end of the proverbial " paddle " gave the Sophomore encourage- ment to firmly supervise the class affairs of the lowly Frosh. With like vitality he participated or cheered his mates as they assumed their places on varsity athletic teams or engaged in Homecoming Day or All- University Night programs. Thus passed the first plunge into aggressive leadership by individual of- ficers and classmen, and as a result, there was a stronger spirit of conviviality, embodied in a congenial promenade, for the Sophomore Class as a whole. 102 rOU WERE A SOPHOMORE 103 Ihe Maryland football squad, suffering from the 1938 graduation, gathered its hopefuls together and ran roughshod over its first two rivals, then settled back to be battered into submission in the re- maining seven games. The team failed to win a major victory over the entire season. Woefully weak in reserve power, the Terrapin forces were literally overpow- ered by their opponents. Four times dur- ing the campaign the " Terps " were beaten after putting up a sparkling first- half struggle. Then, wearied physically, thev fell pre ' to the enemv ' s fresh shock Cury, Bruughcun, Kemp, lipplcy, Supple 104 M, Staunch Supporters troops. Not once, however, did the mo- rale of the team dip below par. Hampden-Sydtiey Subs Star, Too, as Terps Win Opener from Hampden-Sydney Terrapin forces did their first howling September 30 when they defeated a stub- born but hopelessly inadequate Hamp- den-Sydney eleven in the opener at Col- lege Park. The Terps scored twice in the first quarter when Joe Murphy skirted around left end from the twelve. A few minutes later a pass from Murphy to Beamer set up a three-yard plunge by Johnny Boyda for the second tally. Pershing Mondorff 105 Little Whitey Miller added his part by scoring behind Mondorff ' s superb block- ing from the Hampden-Sydney i 5 -yard stripe in the second canto when the whole starting lineup was replaced. At the half, Maryland led 19-0. The final score of the day came in the closing minutes when the Old Liners worked the ball down to the Tiger 8 and Beamer cuddled with a pass in the end zone to clean matters up in fine shape. Only the superb punting of Harry Mur- dock kept the Tigers in the game. It is always a memorable event when a new star is found, and this day, sopho- more Bernie Ulman ' s performance in pass- l-rank Ms.ilniLk . iu p i_ iiain.s lo yaid.i Ui Litn.sl I luinliden-Sydiicy ing, running and defensive work placed him in position to be the find of the year. Western Maryland Mondorff Leads Team to Victory Over Terrors in Night Game Emmitsburg ' s contribution to Mary- land sports, Pershing Mondorff, accounted for ten of the twelve points scored against Western Maryland in the first night foot- ball game in the history of the school. It was Maryland ' s second and final victory of the season. The Terrors surprised the fans by holding off the much too powerful 106 Terps for the first half, but stronger re- serve strength told in the third period when the Old Liners scored a safety, a field goal, a touchdown, and an extra point. Leo Mueller broke through on Eddie Elder as he attempted to punt from the Western Maryland 20, and threw him for an eleven-yard loss. The following play, Elder received a bad pass behind the goal line and fell on it for a safety. Western Maryland kicked off and the ball was brought back on a sustained march to the Terror 20, from where Mondorff scam- pered for a touchdown. A moment later, Mondorff led another attack at the Western Maryland goal, but was stalled by a stubborn Terror defense on their 14. Mondorff ' s third field goal attempt of the night was good from the 2 1 , and the score stood at 1 2-0. Ulman carried on the good work he started in the Hampden-Sydney game by intercepting Elders pass on the Mary- land 30 and weaving seventy yards for a touchdown which was not counted be- cause of a clipping penalty. Virginia Cavaliers Break Terrapin Lead to Take Heartbreaker, 12-7 Bob Smith, who had been out of the Our team is Red Hot! The Terps kick off to Western Maryland in first night game 10; first two games with a leg injury, returned at center October 14 when the first loss was stacked up against the Terps by Vir- ginia in Scott Stadium. James " Pop " Wharton, who had played bang-up ball in the Hampden-Sydney and Western Maryland games, gave way to the heavier and more experienced Smith. The Sophomore members of the squad came into their own against the highly publicized Cavaliers in the second quarter of the game when Virginia lost the ball on downs on the Maryland 34. Mearle DuVall, who had been playing a grand game of ball all day, faded back to chuck a two-yard pass to Bernie Ulman on the Cavalier 35. Mondorff found a hole in the Virginia line good for eleven yards, and another DuVall pass found Frank Dwyers hands in pay dirt. The conversion was good and Maryland led 7-0 at the half. The immovable Terp forward wall con- trolled the Cavaliers throughout the game and eight minutes before the end of the contest they still held their seven-point lead. Virginia, sparked by Jim Gillette, took to the air and riddled the Terp back- field with a shower of passes that netted them two touchdowns in four minutes. Virginia ' s conversions were not good, and Mondorff heads for open jield against irginia 108 7 o Zf ii, ' oul lor irginia the game ended with Dobson ' s men suf- fering a 1 2-7 setback. George Lawrence, captain for the day, played sixty minutes of magnificent foot- ball and was the mainstay of the Mary- land defense all afternoon. Rutgers DuVall Stars ; Terps Drop One to Rutgers, 25-12, in Upset Rutgers took full advantage of Joe Murphy s fumble on the kickoff and scored three plays later. From this point they went on to defeat the desperate Terps 25-12 at New Brunswick October 21. DuVall came in for some more plain and fancy passing which led to both of the Old Liners " scores. The beginning of the second quarter found Maryland in pos- session of the ball on the Scarlet one-foot mark. Mearle bounced over for Mary- land ' s first blood. Rutgers, paced by Bill Tranavitch and Vinnie Utz, scored twice to gain the lead 19-b. DuVall flipped a series of passes to Ulman to bring the Terps within striking distance the second time. A razzle-dazzle triple reverse which resembled more a game of catch-the-hot-potato than foot- ball placed the ball on the Scarlet 10. Mondorff looped a pass to Dwyer in the end zone and the half ended with Rut- gers leading 19-12. The second half was a deadlock until the last three minutes of the game when Gottlieb of the Scarlet intercepted a Mary- land pass on his own 17, and from there passed to a Rutgers wingman to score. DuXall passes to Shaffer near Rutgers ' goal 109 Homecoming Sophomores Dunk Yearlings; Gators Win Homecoming Classic Eight thousand loyal and shivering fans sprinkled themselves over Byrd Sta- dium October 28 and watched a slightly underrated Florida team push through with a 14-0 victory over the Terps in the annual homecoming classic. Homecoming activities began early in the morning with the enrollment of the old grads, followed by the annual frosh- sophomore struggle in Paint Branch. In- tense rivalry earlier in the year stimulated interest in this particular tug-of-war, and from the beginning it promised to be like no other. It was a losing fight for the Frosh, as the second-year men pulled their little brothers in and under, and rat caps were still the rule when the mud- slinging had stopped. At halftime of the game, Kappa Delta i ympath Johnny Boyda plunges through the Florida line Dunkers 110 with a living seal of the State of Maryland was judged to have the most attractive float, and Sigma Alpha Mus antique hearse tickled the judges out of a loving cup. A strong wind kept the Maryland pass- ing attack from getting under way, and a much superior Gator line kept them stymied on the ground. Mearle DuVall was not available for duty, and Murphy had the signal calling duties to himself the entire afternoon. His speed was the usual threat until he tired in the last part of the fray, but his kicking was still great. Bud Walton, little Andy Beno, and Hubie Houston carried the fight to the Terps the entire sixty minutes. Walton was almost a lone figure in the first Flor- ida touchdown a few minutes before the end of the first half, as he brought the ball a major portion of the 3b-yard drive to the goal. A bum steer inning float .) .■ lurph ' ' Tired! ' Ill The second half saw a punting duel be- tween Joe Murphy and Walton. One of Joe ' s kicks traveled eighty-two yards from the Maryland end zone for the best single performance of the day. Early in the last quarter, the Old Liners made their single bid for a touchdown when they got the ball on the Gator 3b, but the Florida line held like a brick wall and the Terps lost the ball on downs. Spirit faded from the Terps with this eff ort and Florida took over for a fifty- eight-yard march for their second and last touchdown.

Albarano, captain of the Terp forces, led the defensive sixty minutes, and kept the goal line intact for three of the quar- ters. The Penn State power got under way twice in the wind-up of the third quarter, pushed over two tallies within a few minutes, and then retired to dog- fight for the balance of the game. It was an inspired team that kept the Lions at bay those forty-five minutes. Murphy and Boyda led the offensive with plunges by the latter which shook the formidable Penn State line, and passes by Murphy which were a constant threat. Ulman came in for some more glory in his stellar defense play and his short-lived passing exhibition. Most of the Lions " gains were on the ground as the Terps pass defense had tightened up after the Virginia and Flor- ida lessons. Their two scores resulted from runs from their 48 and 47-yard lines Ralph Albarano 113 by Ickes and Petrella, respectively. Ickes was remembered as the one who turned the 1938 game into a track meet. Hoya-Terp Day Georgetown Batters to 20-0 Win as Murphy Stars for Old Liners The Okl Liners contributed another game to Georgetown ' s long list of con- secutive victories Armistice Day when they dropped the annual classic 20-0 to the Washington ri -als in Griffith Stadium. The Hoyas were top-heavy favorites before the game. However, before the - weakened, the Terps put up a fight that recalled Georgetown games of a few years past. Bob Brown recovered a Ho -a fumble on their 23, but the Maryland backfield could manage to forge only to the 1 8, so Johnny Boyda dropped back for a field goal. His attempt was wide, and Pre-mme victorv som Midnight ivatch 114 Murphy, Skotnicki. and spectators see action in Hoya game the only Terp scoring opportunity of the game was gone. Joe Murphy came into his own again in this contest as his superb punting pulled the Terps out of a hole on several oc- casions. One of his punts travelled sixty- five yards in the air, and on the kickoff beginning the second half, he ran the ball back sixty-two yards to the Hoya 33. Georgetown was on the offensive a great portion of the game, forcing the Old Liners to kick from deep in their own territory whenever they were fortunate enough to handle the ball. Georgetown scored in the second, third and fourth quarters and converted successfully twice to end the game 20-0. Unfortunately, the pre-game rally and all-night drum beating, though enjoyable while they lasted, meant naught on the final result. V. M. I. Boyda ' s Performance Features 14-0 Defeat by V.M.I, at Norfolk A majority of the frenzied mob of 15,000 spectators who crowded Foreman Field, down in Norfolk, November 18, will not remember the score nearly as long as they will remember Johnny Boyda ' s exhibition of power and stamina. It was Boyda all the way, from the opening whistle to the gun. Each time he carried the ball the crowd was on its feet. His solo performances accounted for a very large part of the Terp yardage, and in one dri e in the third period, with the Terps trailing 7-0, he accounted for 40 yards of a Vlaryland t»2-yard march from their own 18 to V.M.I. ' s 20. It was his linebucking and plunging that accounted for every first down on this march. Dick Shaffer blocks V.M.I, pass V.M.I, was outplayed in every depart- ment, but the score ended, oddly enough, 13-0 in their favor. In the second period Bosh Pritchard took Mondorff ' s punt on the V.M.I. 27 and picked up a Keydet here and there until he miraculously had si.x of them surrounding him as he scur- ried across the Maryland goal line, untouched. In the last minute of the game, the Keydets took over on the Terrapin ' s 28 and forced across their second blemish on an otherwise fine dav. breathless 10-7 victory. A Syracuse field goal toward the end of the first period set up the game for a nip-and-tuck job as both teams sparred for an advantage in the middle of the field. The stage was set for anything in the second period when the Terps received the ball on their own 42. On the first play, Joe Murphy lit out around right end, fol- lowed his interference for a couple yards, reversed the field, and dashed diagonally for the Svracuse end zone. The conver- Syracuse Team Concludes Poor Season by Fine Showing Against Orange Thanksgiving brought an abrupt end to football. The Washington and Lee game was cancelled, and arrangements were made with the Syracuse University offtcials to have the Orange-Terp tilt at College Park on the morning of Xo em- ber 23. Coach Frank Dobson again upset the dope-pot by holding the Orangemen to a Sideline strategy 116 Murfyhy on )S-yard sprint against Syracuse sion was good, and the mid-time score stood at 7-3. However, the Orangemen rallied in the last canto with a final min- ute touchdown which brought them into a 10-7 win. Frannie Beamer, Ralph Albarano, Bob Brown, Frank Skotnicki, George Law- rence, Johnny Boyda, Pershing Mondorff, Leo Mueller, and Eddie Lloyd will not be available for duty with the Terps under their newly-appointed coaches Al Woods, Jack Faber, and Al Heagy next year.

" Dutch " Knepley and Eddie Johnson, both All-Southern Conference basketeers, had departed via the graduation route. Answering the initial roll call were vet- erans George DeWitt, Pershing Mondorff, Adam Bengoechea, Gene Ochsenreiter and Bill Rea. Supplementing these vets were Back row: Vannais, Woodward, Porter, Wharton, Bengoechea, Ochsenreiter, Weidinger, McHale.

Plus the first two elements of experienced men and frosh there was still a third group; Terps who had starred in sports other than the court game. Mickey Mulitz reported fresh from .All-American honors on the lacrosse field ; Charlie Weidinger, after three years " work on the gridiron, donned basketball shorts; and Eddie Miller, stellar high jumper, shifted the scenes of his acti ities. After conditioning his veterans, and changing the Terplets into Terps, Coach Shipley had his court aggregation ready. Opening against Western Maryland, the Terps breezed in by the comfortable mar- gin of 48-32, and Randolph-Macon was taken into camp with little effort. Following a short Christmas holiday, Clemson was met and defeated in Balti- more. Charlie Weidinger was high point scorer for the third time in three games. The Old Liners opened a three-day north- ern jaunt by dropping a close contest to the University of Pennsylvania. The next night the Black and Gold cagers resumed their winning ways by dropping Rutgers 5 1-39.

With about a minute to Du all makes goal in G. game play Maryland ' s scoring twins, DuVall and DeWitt, went into action. DuVall tied the score, and DeWitt swished in the clincher. The Terps ran roughshod over Richmond, and eked out a one-point win in the important Hoya clash. V.P.I, gave the Liners a scare, but could not quite hold Maryland ' s torrid pace. The following afternoon Washington and Lee set DeWitt and company down plenty hard. Maryland could not fathom the Generals ' defense and never threatened. Bad roads and rough weather handi- capped Maryland when the squad jour- neyed through the Southland. After stop- ing North Carolina State 45-36, the pace began to tell, and the Terps lost three straight games to Clemson, South Caro- lina, and Duke. The Virginia game sched- uled for this same trip was cancelled because of bad roads. Home after a short rest the Liners returned to action by whipping Johns Hopkins 49-36. 120 Mondorff takes ball from Georgetown Anvbodv ' s ball in Catholic U. game Four days later the courtmen left on their final journey, traveling to Lexing- ton. Here they split the spoils, losing to Washington and Lee but defeating V.M.L by a bo to 33 margin. Back at College Park again the weather prevented the Washington College game from coming into being, thereby giving the basketeers a much needed rest. Catholic University and V.M.L fell before the Liner sharp- shooters, the latter game qualifying the Terps for the annual Conference in Raleigh. In the last contest befo re the playoff, George Washington took the measure of the Black and Gold. Drawing Washington and Lee, who had twice defeated them, the Marylanders " i H i% V:- ■ ml ' m ' ' K . ' PmWJ ' r r ' ft.

Fighting an uphill battle all the way the Liners, how- ever, came through to a 43-30 victory, mainly due to the efforts of DeWitt on the offense and Mulitr on the defense. Mov- ing into the semi-final bracket, the Terps were outclassed by a powerful Duke five to end their season. 121 STREAMLINED parade of extra-cur- ricular activities directed by Ralph Wil- liams featured the non-athletic part of the seventh annual All-University Night. Sandwiched between the basketball game with Catholic University and the boxing matches with Western Maryland College, the parade depicted the many ex- tra-curricular activities of the University. It included performances by the band, the combined chorus, the mens and women ' s physical education departments, and Per- shing Rifles. The ninety-minute program was inter- spersed with satirical antics of four clowns who all but stole the show ; Pershing Rifies again presented the Zouave drill with faultless precision under the direction of Lieutenant John Reckord ; a dancing class of the physical education departments offered a cabaret scene in which Mary- land ' s star athletes demonstrated the schottische with some of Terpdom ' s most ive sity J ight popular coeds ; and exhibitions of archery were given by Lloyd Noel and Tommie Tiffany. This year ' s All-University Night was a far cry from those of previous years. Hav- ing only about a third of the usual number of participants, it took the appearance of a well-organized, fast moving show which found the approval of a full house. Back row: .Abrams.

An old cut that opened up above his eye was all that could trouble the Maryland " Golden Boy. " Against Catholic University at their gym the old rivalry continued, and when the smoke had settled the Brooklanders had eked out a 4 -3 2 win. The favored Cavaliers of Virginia, boasting a winning streak, were held to a stalemate when in the final bout Izzy Leites moved up a notch to clearly out- punch and outbox big Ed Burgess. Leites, a senior fighting for the first year, was, in Coach Millers opinion, the most im- proved boxer on the squad. In the Vir- ginia fight Bradley showed his old form by hammering a T.K.O. over Bob Schenk- len. Nate Askin ' s win over Pete Coy was another on the string of undefeated dual matches in two years. Newt Cox dropped his first fight when a close decision was awarded to the other corner.

Giving away reach and height, " Hotsy " went through the season with this as the only stain on his chart, Nor- man Hathaway, blonde bomber filling the 155-pound berth, suffered a T,K.O. against the Heels when he was forced to quit in the second round because of a cut eye, the bugaboo that followed the Old Liners throughout the season. Hathaway, though inexperienced, delighted his fol- lowers in the quick mastery of the art. The boxers closed the annual All-Uni- versity Night when they ran roughshod over Western Maryland. Substituting for Bradley, Charlie Dorr came through with a victory which tied the score at one each.

Harn lost a close fight to the eventual winner of the class, Olin McDonald. Cox, who was defending his title, suffered the first T.K.O. of his career due to his eye cut. Prior to the decision he had clearly maintained the advantage in the fight. Leites gave a wonderful account of him- self when he lost the decision by a hair in the finals to Fergerson of Clemson. Nate Askin, the brilliant lightweight who, in three fights had not lost a round, was tagged in the finale with an uppercut by Sol Blatt that put him down for the count of ten — an unfortunate climax to to the 1940 boxing season.

Head Coach Burton Ship- ley had a large squad of recruits trying out for the positions that were left open by lads like Johnson and Chumbris, who had graduated. With infield troubles galore, mentor Shipley began building a new infield com- bination, having Adam Bengoechea as the foundation. Adam with two years ' Varsity play under his belt filled in the gap at second like a charm. Jake Rudy and Newt Cox staged a battle for the initial sack post but they were both good ma- terial and Coach Shipley alternated the lads in every game. Dick McHale loomed as the hot spot man and filled in the port- side corner like a veteran. Big Leib McDonald and Pop Wharton hooked up in a duel for the short-stopping job. However, during the season, each saw plenty of action. The pitching prob- lem was a beauty with Earl Springer, Persh Mondorff, the Woodwards, and Dick Hunt trying for the top positions. Charles B. stian Manager of ' arsUy Baseball 128 Springer worked like a big leaguer in the past season and seemed certain to go up to the big show. Persh was the topnotcher when it came to the right banders. In t he outfield the situation proved to be even better. Hugh Keller, the brother of the famed Charlie, roared into the sea- son with a banner year. In the first five games the Middletown slugger batted out fifteen hits in just twent ' -fi -e trips to the plate for a .523 average. Tiny Adam Bengoechea pressed the mighty Keller with se ' en for fifteen for a mighty .4bb figure. Bert Culver guarded the middle section of the vast outer garden and was one of the finest looking fielders in the conference.

After a week lay-off the Terps opened in their own backyard against the Ver- mont nine. The New Englanders were no match for the Liners who blasted for fif- teen hits and sixteen runs. In the next battle the Pittsburgh Pan- thers were shut out 14-0. Lefty Vannais toiled the mound for the Liners and didn ' t give a hit until the fifth inning. Adam Bengoechea served up a homer with the bases packed in a thrilling second inning that saw the Liners get nine runs on six hits. Bad weather again interfered and the Michigan and Richmond games were rained out. With a tough twenty-five game schedule ahead the Liners had a big. problem to get an even break. The first few battles showed the defects and Coach Turk Burns, a seasoned veteran, donned the pad and mask for the second straight year. Burns with a good arm and a fine worker with the pitchers will be re- membered as one of the Terrapins ' better catchers. Mearle DuVall, a sophomore, was a dependable second choice although out part of the season with a bad finger. The season opened with a jaunt in the " sunny " lands of the south during the Easter holidays. In the opener, North Carolina upset the Liners 8-7 in a ten- inning battle that saw Terps out-hit the Tarheels two to one. Virginia had the Old Liners ' number in the next tilt and topped the Shipleymen b-2. The Duke Alaisel drives a long one 130 Base hit for Coach Shipley A little lass to be envied Heads up Shipley began rebuilding and repairing the infield. Billy Evans was given a chance to prove his skill at short but failed in favor of McDonald. Wharton came in after spring football practice and began showing promise. McHale was tops at third and stayed in that slot until the last game. After an exhibition tilt with the Balti- more Orioles the Terps prepared for the coming games including the Hoya-Liner affair. With Earl Springer and Persh Mondorff on tap the Liners were set to repeat last year ' s showing when Lefty Springer turned the Hoya crew back 4-0 in the local pitch, allowing the Washing- ton lads but two hits. In the other ancient rivalry the Terps last year outlasted the Georgetown nine to win 8-4, but the Hoyas had a better outlook this season and all indications pointed to a real punch for punch tussle to redeem the 20-0 gridiron defeat suffered by the Terps in the fall. 131 n " Lacrosse With all of last year ' s National Inter- collegiate championship lacrosse team back except Jim Meade and Rip Hewitt, lost through graduation, the prospects for a trophy repeat in 1940 were fairly encouraging. To fill the gaps in the starting line-up left by the loss of these two stars. Coach Faber found ample material from last year ' s squad, besides several players from the freshman team. Outstanding year- lings sporting the Varsity colors were Al Slesinger, on attack, Mark Kelly in the goal, and Bill McGregor in the midfield. The greatest strength this year lay in the trio of close defense men. Leo Mueller and Micky Mulitz held down regular berths last year and Bill Graham was a regular the year before. The first of the season saw these three men working to- gether beautifully to do their share in re- turning the title to the Terps. ' Terps cross sticks ivith Loyola Dartmouth goalie clears out bejore onslaught 132 Terps and Crimson fight for ball near Harvard goal Free ball in Lowla mine Except for Rip Hewitt, the efficient attack of last year returned intact. Sev- eral advantageous changes altered the appearance of the spearhead of the team. Lively Billy Bond played in-home. Billy was not a regular last year, but played much of each game, and as a senior this year earned his position on the starting line-up. The only familiar face on the close attack was Oscar Nevares. Playing the same brilliant game that won him recognition last year, Oscar gave some fine performances before he turned in his uniform for the last time at the end of the season. The only sophomore playing regularly, Al Slesinger, performed a brand of stick handling that promises great things in the next two years. Some shifting around was necessary to accommodate Slesinger on the close attack. Jordan " Smiley " Sexton had been playing the crease and doing a fine job. His speed and stick handling were valu- able in any position, so Coach Faber shifted him to midfield to fill the shoes left vacant by All-American Jim Meade. The others in the midfield were vet- erans Jack Mueller and Billy Cole. Jack played close defense last year, but he shifted to midfield to make room for Bill Graham. His experience gained in the previous season stood him in good stead and he did well in his new position. Sev- eral times he ran the length of the field to score unassisted. The center position, possibly the toughest spot on the team, Front line worries 133 One of ti Terp scores against Loyola Dogfight in front of Loyola cage falls to squat Billy Cole, who leads the team in aggressiveness. The greatest problem confronting the coaching staff was the selection of a goalie, Jack Grier played the goal last year and returned for his last season. Competing with Jack for the position was sophomore Mark Kelly. Kelly played close attack on the freshman club last year, but was an outstanding goalie in his prep-school days. He is better under pressure than the veteran Grier, but is not so adept at clearing out. In the first four games each played part of the time, and that ap- peared to be a workable solution to the net problem. With only two regulars missing, the men who came up from last season yearling crop did not get much of a showing. The freshmen were undefeated last year, but only Al Slesinger, who led the attack, got a regular berth on the Varsity. In the midfield only Bill McGregor qualified for a uniform. He played every game and turned in a credible performance each time. Bart Hewitt played midfield on the freshman team, but subbed at close at- tack as a sophomore this year. Another sophomore who ran in " " show " position all year was Carl Bacharach, fighting with Grier and Kelly for a place in the goal. He lacked the polish of the favorites, however, and so did all of his work in the practice sessions. Meeting the Mount Washington stick- men for the opening game of the 1940 season, the Terrapins took an 8-3 lacing from the Baltimore clubmen as they ex- acted revenge for last year ' s ii-i dis- grace. In the first quarter the Old Liners gave the fans fruitless hopes when they started off with a 3-0 lead. With ex- Terp Rip Hewitt leading the attack, the Clubmen soon hit their stride and held the collegians scoreless while they poured eight goals past Kelly. When it came to defending their net, the Maryland de- fensemen did admirably, but they fell down on clearing out. Their 26 failures to clear out gave the Mounts possession of the ball a large percentage of the time and contributed toward the Terp downfall. 134 Third row: L. Mueller, Graham, J.

The Indian raid was ineffectual, the Terps having little trouble in turning back the Dartmouth ten. Al Slesinger led his team with four tallies in his first var- sity game against college competition. At no time was the Indian team in the same league with the Marylanders, and the Old Line defense did not get a chance for a workout. Three days later Maryland overran the Harvard team i i-i. Harvard scored first and the fans thought perhaps a la- crosse miracle was in the making before their very eyes, but the Terps soon swamped them with tally after tally. Everybody on the team got a good workout on the sixth when the Terrapins ran roughshod ove r a hopelessly out- classed Loyola ten from Baltimore. Start- ing their attack early, the Terps downed the visiting team ib--4. Next year there will be several new faces on the starting team. Cole, Bond, Nevares, Leo Vlueller, Graham, Mulitz, Grier, alternates Heil, Garrett, and Law- rence are graduating, leaving their po- sitions to juniors and members of the present freshman team. Several of the yearlings will be welcome on the Varsity next year. Milt Vandenberg and Ray Grelecki are great attack men and Bruce Campbell was an All-Maryland center in high school. John Rabai is the only ex- perienced defense man on the team, but several beginners are developing rapidly and will be needed to refill the gradua- tion-riddled defense. 135 M, .aryland ' s 1940 track team first felt the cinders on Ritchie Stadium on March 9, a week before Easter, as Coach Geary Eppley brought out all returning varsity men from last year ' s strong squad. Those whose spike marks were not to be found in the track were Joe Peaslee, ace distance runner; Eddie Miller, South- ern Conference high-jump champ; and Hermie Evans, also a conference cham- pion in the hurdles. On the track Maryland had nothing to worry about, for the Liners had one of the best running teams in the country. The sprints were handled by veterans Dick Barnes and Alan Miller, with sophomores Jack Warfield and Elmer Rigby doing their share. In the middle distances Gene Ochsenreiter, Alan Miller, Vernon ■ " Whitey " Miller, Jack Warfield, and Jim Kehoe virtually cleaned up. During the winter track season Jim broke tape with the best half milers the nation had to offer. London and Fields ivarming u i 136 Barnes ivinning loo-yard dash from WM.I.

Mason Chronister and Bob Condon led the milers, while Tommy Fields in the two-mile race was the outstanding man. Sophomores Dick Sullivan and Randall Cronin alternated between the mile and two-mile, faring with above the average success. The bur- den of the hurdles fell on Bob Porter, Boyd Taliaferro, and Wylie Hopkins. Coach Eppley experienced his greatest trouble, for in the Greek events the Liners were weak, but with mainstays Charley Morris, Ralph Albarano, and Gordon Kluge, a winning combination was built. The neophytes for field events were coached by some former varsity man who excelled in that line. Pete Pfeiffer held class in the strength events, while Frank Cronin developed Bill Holbrook as pole vaulter. Frank Tilley, Boyd Taliaferro, and Frank Morris took over the broad jump and brought in their share of points. Chronister and Whitey Miller prepare for competition Javelin technique discussed by Hopkins and Cordyack 137 On Saturday, March 30, four Terrapin aces, Tommy Fields, Jim Kehoe, Vlason Chronister, and Alan Miller won the one- mile relay, the two-mile relay, and the one-mile team race at Gainesville, Florida. The Terps not only won but they set new meet records in the relays. A week later the whole Terrapin squad packed their bags for Blacksburg, where they engaged V.P.L in the Terp ' s initial spring meet. Despite handicaps, Mary- land broke the tape as winners nine times to send the thin-clads of Virginia Tech down to a 71-55 defeat. Maryland ' s runners were far too strong for the Techmen as they amassed point after point on the cinde rs, and erased two stadium records from the books. Jim Kehoe continued his winning ways by lowering the half-mile mark, a record which had stood for eleven years, and in the two-mile jaunt Tommy Fields crossed the line and found that he had clipped fourteen seconds from the previous local Holbrook and Montgomery limber ii ) Assistant coach Pfeiffer corrects Ktuge ' s form Kehoe paces Alan Miller in a workout Ochsenreiter captures the 440 from V.M.I.

Vernon Miller, Jack Warfield, and Dick Barnes took good care of all the sprints, capturing every point position. Alan Miller and Gene Ochsenreiter scored in the one and two slots in the 440. In the field events, Holbrook took second place in the pole vault, Albarano, first in the shot, Tilley first in the broad jump, and Kluge first in the javelin. Wednesday, April 10, found the Terps running in their own backyard against the Cadets of V.M.I. The Old Liners were never behind and came through to win easily by a score of 78 to 47. Gene Ochsenreiter and Jack Warfield kept the 440 well in hand and finished one-two. In the IOC-yard dash Dick Barnes edged out Bob Deaderick, VM. I. ' s ace dash man. Bob Porter was the only Terp to place the high hurdles with a third; in the low obstacles Maryland fared a little better as Boyd Taliaferro captured the ' " place " position. Once again the Liner Limited, Jim Kehoe, clicked off the half mile with plenty to spare. Tommy Fields ran a strong 9.47 to take care of the two-mile grind. Franny Morris picked up first place in the broad jump with Reeves Tilley, his teammate, behind him. Billy Holbrook once again managed to squeeze a second place in the pole ' ault. In the weight events Nlaryland stepped out. Keydet AI Walker tossed the shot far enough for first place. The next two marks belonged to Charley Morris and Ralph Albarano. Charley Morris then turned to the discus and heaved it enough to move up to top spot. Gordon Kluge took first for Maryland in the javelin. 13Q nms Ihe 1940 season saw the passing of what was undoubtedly the finest tennis team ever to represent the University of Maryland. With practically the entire squad back from last year and aided by- two stellar sophomores, the netmen dis- played an array of talent never equalled on the Terp courts, according to records. Three seniors, each of whom had com- pleted at least one undefeated season of competition, ended their collegiate tennis careers. These men were Allie Ritzenberg, Nate Askin, and Jay Phillips.

A consistent winner, Jay Phillips will also be missed by the 1941 team. Con- sidered by Coach Leslie Bopst to be one of the most improved members of the team, Phil Burkom, colorful junior, turned out to be a great asset to the team. Rounding out the singles berths, Doyle Royal and Griff Baugher, the two sopho- mores, promised a brilliant future.

Competition for shoulder firing was provided by the Marine Corps, Gettys- burg, Western Maryland, Georgetown, Virginia Military Institute, Virginia Poly- technic Institute, Carnegie Tech, George Washington, and Navy. Consistently topping all others with excellent scores were Bill Jensen, Bob Laughead, Tom Riley, and Alden Imus. The team competed in the District of Columbia Championship match, finishing third behind the National Guard and the Marine Corps. Imus was high man for the " Terrapins " in this contest.

Various attempts were made to organ- ize Latch Key on the Maryland campus in the past two decades, but somehow the enthusiasm which accompanied these ef- forts soon waned. However, the enlarge- ment of the athletic program brought home to the managers of the various teams the need for another effort toward organization for entertainment of their visitors. The modern Latch Key Society, a fraternity of varsity and junior man- agers, was initiated by Perry Hay, foot- ball manager in 1938. Since that time, Latch Key has grown to include thirty-nine managers and junior managers of ten sports; those of rifie, wrestling, and soccer were admitted last year.

Soccer KJ NDAUNTED by the loss of many of last year ' s stars, Coach " Stew " McCaw pro- ceeded to turn out another crack soccer team. Headed by Captain Mears, the " Old Line " hooters succeeded in downing many of the best teams in this part of the country. Included in their victory col- umn were such clubs as Towson, Hopkins, Delaware, and Salisbury. The season ' s height was reached when the soccerites defeated the State Champs from Towson State Teachers College. With Max Schroeder leading the way, the " Terrapins " completely routed the previously unscored-on champions, and came off the field with a 4 to i victory. The fact that they were only defeated by the strong Virginia and Frostburg teams bears out the strength of this sea- son ' s team. Playing outstanding ball for the Mc- Cawmen were Schroeder, Charley Ernst, and Bob Main on the line. Frank Mears and Bob Melvin in the backfield, and Fritz Maisel in the goal. Time after time these men paved the way to Maryland victories with their aggressive and in- spiring play. Not enough praise can be given to Coach McCaw for his outstanding work. His passing plays and fine defensive tactics were instrumental in the team ' s successful showing. Wrestling Wrestling for the first year under varsity colors, the grapplers, guided by- Coach " Doug " Douglass, won six of their seven matches. Maryland ' s first match was with Johns Hopkins, from which the Terps emerged with a 25-13 victory. They ran rough- shod over the second victim, Galludet College, not losing a single bout. On the following Saturday 450 students braved a 14(3 Standing: Dunn, Hurley. McNeil. Krouse, Watson, Mead. Sealed: Douglas, coach; Maxwell. Ayrcs. Rochstroh, Hud.son, Councill. Race, manager. blizzard to watch the wrestlers make it three in a row at the expense of a isiting Haver ford team. The only black mark on the teams record was the result of the first match in foreign territory, when Rutgers spoiled the Liners ' trip by defeating them 26-8. In spite of gloomy predictions, the Terps came back from their Southern jaunt with the record of wins extended to six. Duke fell 21-1 1 to the cautious Terps, and in the second meet the Old Liners squeezed through with a ib-14 win over Davidson. The last match of the season against a strong Lafayette team was another bitter affair that ended in victory for the Terps. Luminaries of the team were Paul McNeil and " Buzz " Councill. McNeil, who was undefeated this year, has won thirty-three straight matches. Losing but one of his bouts, Councill gave fine per- formances in all his matches. With all men back and the experience gained from this year ' s contests the team expects to Maryland on top better their alreadv fine record next vear. Councill gets a hold 147 Womens Athletics Women ' s athletics had an eventful and successful year under the jurisdiction of the Women ' s Athletic Association. Every sport had its day as the calendar turned from September to June. In the fall the intraclass competition in hockey held the spotlight with the sophomores finally defeating the senior-junior team. Then, in a play-day with American Uni- versity, Marjorie Webster, and George Washington University, Maryland was forced to divide the honors. Soccer finally overshadowed hockey on the program, and again intraclass com- petition held full sway. This time the freshman-sophomore team and the junior- senior teams played to a scoreless tie. Ordinarily it would have been played off. but Old Man Winter stepped in and effec- tix ' ely decided the situation. Basketball came to the fore just before Christmas, and the intramural tourna- ment for the sorority division an d the non-sorority league waxed warm. The winners of each division played off for the championship, with the unconquerable Daydodgers victors of the fray. Basket- ball held class interest too, and in a very successful afternoon, the sophomore, ju- nior, and senior teams trounced the George Washington University teams. ' Volle ball and baseball came with the spring, and the usual tournaments and league competitions enveloped the Field House with a buzz of activity. The added stress placed on intramural games was 148 compensation for the dearth of intercol- legiate competition. The individual sports crowded the events calendar. Table tennis, badmin- ton, tennis, archery, golf, shuffleboard, darts, deck tennis, and riding — each had its day. Tournaments in each sport cre- ated interest among the coeds. This year credit was given for riding, as well as golf, archery, and tennis. Those girls interested in golf were fortunate in having Mr. Al Houghton, professional golfer from Beaver Dam Country Club, as special instructor. The little-mentioned coed fencing team gave a noteworthy exhibition this year. The members were handicapped by the difficulty of securing the Field House for practice. An invitation to join the ex- clusive Intercollegiate Fencing Associa- tion was final recognition of their cham- pionship ability. Gwendolyn Drew Head of ( omen ' s Physical Education Under the leadership of Vivian Bono, a new point system was devised for the Women ' s Athletic Association.

The big features of the year were the two Leap ear Dances. These girl-cut and girl-stag affairs were a novel innovation and were well attended by the local campusites. Spring added new zest to the Women ' s Athletic Association, and an expansion program of the whole organisation was planned. Establishment of an honor society was the first idea to be carried out. This society is to be composed of the officers of the W.A.A. and the managers of the various athletic teams, with the aim of furthering women ' s athletics on the campus and enlarging the mother club ' s activities. The other officers of the club were Isa- bel Butler, vice-president; Jean Ramer, secretary-treasurer; Frances Xordwall, recorder of points. BASKETBALL HOCKEY Back row: A.

Consequently, he sought sweet revenge on the incoming Frosh, and, behind President Bill Holbrook, Vice-President John Lambert, Secre- tary Virginia Mercer, and Treasurer Carl Bacharach, turned the tables and completely dictated rat rules.

Novel lighting effects and banners of red and white, the class colors, provided an attractive setting. Sharing credit with Spicer for a successful affair were the other com- mittee chairmen.

Without question a campus-wide poll plan was decided upon, and hence the task of nominating thirteen coeds to vie for the title of Miss Maryland was delegated to the entire student body. Then arose the problem of capturing the fullest beauty and char- acter of the choices. In their quest for a solution the Terrapin editors sought counsel of their technical advisers. As with one voice the reply came: " Josef Schiff can best portray and select your beauty queen. " 153 Josef i chiff, Faiiious TPortrait Photographer, chose NA hen Josef Schiff, with his two able assistants, arrived and set- tled to his task with the quiet assurance that typifies the work of the great artist, any misgivings that observers may have entertained were quickly and thoroughly dispelled. For Mr. Schiff, employing the technique that has won for him photographic laurels both in America and abroad, passed an entire evening interviewing, testing lighting effects, suggesting coiffure, make-up, and costume for each of the thirteen contestants. Of this number, on the basis of personality and personal beauty, six were selected for individual portraiture, and one now reigns as Miss Maryland. Mr. Josef Schiff and the 1940 Terrapin therefore take pleasure in presenting on these pages Miss Maryland for 1940 and her court of honor. 154 IBess Vatersovi AS MISS MARYLAND . . . .

X ROM its very simplicity of design and precision of execution does the symbolic interpretation of Maryland ' s progress which embellishes the cover and certain pages of this volume derive its effective- ness. Indeed, few artists might so com- pletely have captured the abstract quali- ties of such a subject as did Mr. Dale Nichols, who is recognized today as one of the foremost of America ' s design artists, painters, and illustrators. At regular intervals he has contributed illus- trations and cover designs for such stellar publications as The Commerce Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, and The Phoenix Flame, and his paintings have been utilized in the advertisements of such nationally-known products as Bauer and Black medical supplies and Certain- Teed structural materials. Likewise, Mr. Nichols is noted as a lecturer and writer, his present position as professor of art at the University of Illinois and his many published articles attesting to both facts. Hence, it is with no small measure of pride that the 1940 Terrapin presents as its keynote the ably-derived concept of progress by Mr. Dale Nichols. The illustrations of the new buildings in the view section of this book represent a relatively recent development in the field of illustration. So impressed with its effect were the editors of the Terrapin that they immediately sought someone capable of reproducing like sketches on the pages of their 1940 effort. Happily enough they found need to look no further than to their faculty adviser, Mr. O. Raymond Carrington, assistant profes- sor and illustrator assigned to the Exten- sion Service of the University. Mr. Car- rington spent many hours artistically interpreting the actual details of the buildings. To him the Terr.apin is in- debted for its presentation of the physical advancement of the campus. 161 U were an upperclassman.

The Terrapin Robert C. Rice Editor JLvecent Terrapins have become a far cry from the Reveilles and Terra Mariaes of the University of Mary- land during the 1920 ' s and early 30 ' s. Each of the re- cent editors has brought forth new features and expan- sion and revision of old ones. The general appearance and character of the books, however, have remained similar for a number of years. Following in the footsteps of these previous editors, the creators of the 1940 Terrapin added several new features, notably the outstanding alumni pages, the use of pictures printed in colored ink, and the symbol of progress on the cover created by Dale Nichols. Old features, such as the beauty, view, and the fraternitv sections were completely revised. Greater, however, than any of the changes or addi- tions was the revision of the contents of the book into four sections, representing the four classes. Previously, the book has been divided in sections, each independent of the other. The reorganization of the 1 940 Terrapin was made with the belief that the continuity to be attained by logical arrangement and running copy would increase the readability and interest of the book to a new level. The editors of the 1940 Terrapin sincerely hope that they have achieved the desired ends and produced a book exemplary of the progress of the University. George L. Flax Elizabeth Harrover David O.

The Diamondhac Allan C. Fisher Editor JVLaryland ' s semi-weekly strengthened its reputa- tion as one of the outstanding collegiate papers in this section of the country by a year of change and activity. Starting with the second issue in September, an entire new line of type was added, and the paper underwent a thorough streamlining. Caslon bold condensed replaced outmoded Gothic and Cheltenham type, which had been used for over a decade. Greater emphasis was placed on pictorial coverage of the news. In the editorial field the semi-weekly waged several successful campaigns. As outgrowths of editorial action an examination schedule for hour quizzes was instituted in the Arts and Sciences college, rules governing exami- nation irregularities were tightened. Dining Hall con- ditions were improved, and the Interfraternity Council adopted a deferred rushing system. An editorial criti- cizing radical elements in the American Youth Congress attracted national publicity. Notable also was the successful cooperation between the Student Government Association and its official news organ on a number of projects throughout the year. Following the policy of previous years, staff members carried on their traditional friendly feud with the Old Line and inaugurated one with the Terrapin while still finding time to equal both rival publications in progress.

The Old Line Betty D. St. Clair Editor Lhe Old Line started the season by publishing no statement of policy. These limitations set down in the first issue were closely followed, in fact, the most inner circle of the staff hadn ' t the slightest idea from one issue to the next whether the number coming up would be straight scissors from her worthy contemporaries on other campi, or a sudden dart into the realm of unfor- gettable literature to comply with the agitation of a more serious element on the campus. The more serious element stopped reading beyond the table of contents about the month of November, and The Old Line fell into a year of harmless fol de rol that gave no one the slightest offense or the slightest material for silent meditation. The editor came in now and then to see that no one was throwing lighted cigarette butts on the floor and to try to keep Kerwin models on the straight and narrow. One day she and Shipe were both in the office at once, but as soon as the Terrapin picture was taken the happy combine was broken up. The hardest job of the year was keeping brightly hum- orous in spite of the neighbors in the east. But virtue will out, and soon even the Diamondback succumbed to the rosy contagion.

Puhlications Board JtvESPONSiBiLiTY for the success of student publica- tions falls primarily on the shoulders of O. R. Carring- ton, adviser for the Terrapin, and Carlisle Humelsine, adviser for the Old Line and Diamondback. The services of these two men in planning, solving problems, and offering general advice, proved invaluable during the past year. Assisting the advisers are other members of the Pub- lications Board; Ralph I, Williams, chairman; Dr. Susan B. Hannan, of the English Department ; the president of the Student Government Association, the heads of the Men ' s and Women ' s Leagues, and the edi- tors of the various publications. The board acts as a counselor and renders assistance, not in the light of a censor but as a mediator to prevent friction between the campus writers and the administration. O. R.

Pi Delta Epsilon found a means whereby publication members could gather for informal but nevertheless valuable discussions of campus journal- istic problems. The fact that each publi- cation should manage itself without inter- ference was recognized. Pi Delta Epsilon merely sought to solve mutual problems cooperatively. The interest displayed by honorary and faculty members furthered the fraternity ' s leading objective — the fostering of good collegiate journalism. Officers of the past year were : William Brown, president; Betty St. Clair, vice- president; Mary Jane Harrington, sec- retary. Three representatives of the local chapter attended the national Pi Delta Epsilonconvention at Richmond, Virginia. 171 Action Repose Riding Club Riders Found Year-Round Fun With Maryland ' s Riding Club One of Maryland ' s most widely heralded or- ganizations, the Riding Club, was made up of a sizable group of fine horsemen and provided many hours of wholesome fun in the form of paper chases and morning hunts. A brisk ride in the early hours, climaxed by a hearty breakfast at the Sigma Nu house, put the equestrians in the proper spirit for Home- coming. Icy paths, snow banks, and freezing weather did not dampen this spirit in the win- ter months which followed. Smoldering plans were brought into action in April when the members of the club, in joint sponsorship with the Vannesville Dis- trict Horse Show Association, conducted a suc- cessful show here on the campus. Competition for club members took place in the morning, the afternoon having been given over to the visiting horsemen. A gold cup went to first place winner in each class as well as the cus- tomary blue ribbon. In all there were thirty events, including the selection of a champion from the Morgan horses entered by owners from this section of the country. Second row.

The Riding Club was especially proud of its four-man jumping team composed of Fred Hughes, Paul Wimert, Bill Stevens, and Sam Pfefferkorn, which distinguished itself by win- ning top honors and second place at the Fort Myer Horse Show. Officers of the club were: Howard Randall, president; Gar Fairbanks, vice-president; Mary Henderson, secretary; Betty Jullien, treasurer. Calvert Debate Club Intramural and Extramural Arguments Kept Debaters Busy The Calvert Debate Club followed a full and interesting schedule of competitions with other college and university forensic teams through- out the East. It was headed by Frank Davis, with Richard Lee as vice-president; Elizabeth Powers as secretary-treasurer ; Charlotte White as debate manager, and Mr. Milton J. Wiksell of the Speech Department as adviser. The men ' s team, of which Jack Cherry, Frank Davis, Herman Ehudin, and DeVoe Meade were members, toured the North, where they entered debates against Harvard and C.C.N.Y. The women ' s team, composed of Kathleen Shanahan and Charlotte White, journeyed south to compete uith Duke and Hampden-Sydne ' . Between intercollegiate debates, the club was acti ' e locally. Intra-club discussions con- sidered the national Pi Kappa Delta debate topic dealing with the question of isolation, a pertinent subject which is in need of intelligent and open discussion. Also sponsored was an intramural tournament, to which each campus organization was invited to send representa- tives to join the battle of words on the ques- Debate (president makes a point 173 Mexander strings tion, " Resolved: That the policy of Dutch treats should be adopted. " A trophy was awarded to the winning pair and organization. The annual spring banquet climaxed the year ' s schedule of debates.

Rossbourg Club Rossbourg Brought Alexander, Kemp, Gray, Savitt to Campus If one of the rugged students of the 1890 ' s were on the campus today, he would see quite Rossboitrgers gape As smoothies syncopate a change in the organization which he origin- ally founded as the Rossbourg Club. The scene which would greet him as he entered the Gym- Armory, if he could get in without a ticket, would be a colorfully decorated room, filled with dancing couples and the music ot a pop- ular modern orchestra. As ' uletide approached, our nineteenth- century student was lucky enough to attend the Christmas R ossbourg, when the G -m was laden with pine boughs and the holiday spirit, not to mention Hal Kemp with an entourage 174 Savilt shows off Rossbourg officers After the ball Intermission which presented a veritable vaudeville show. The event was complete with an ODK spon- sored Santa Claus, authentic in appearance even to his false white whiskers. Still in a daze and fatigued from the Junior Prom, the ancient son of Maryland dragged himself to the Rossbourg at the end of final exam week, when Glen Gray and his Casa Lomas played sweet music two nights in suc- cession for Terp dance fans. The student, vintage 1890, again donned his full dress when Jan Savitt brought his catchy melodies to the campus just before Easter. With a tear in his eye as he indulged in a bit of reminiscing about his own happy college days, the " alum " took in the June Week dances, the first of which was sponsored by the Ross- bourg Club. At this time, as the charter mem- ber faded back into the past after enjoying five dance highlights, he exclaimed lustily, " The Rossbourgs were never like this back in iSgi. " 175 Women ' s Chorus Women ' s Chorus Helped Produce " Trial by Jury, " Sponsor Otero The Women ' s Chorus is an organization for University women interested in group singing. Its officers " panel included Marian Bond, president; Jeanne Santamarie, vice-president; Mary Simpson, secretary; and Doris Hamp- shire, treasurer. In November a selected group was invited to sing over the radio on the Farm and Home Frank LaForge. This concert was sponsored by the Women ' s Chorus in collaboration with the Men ' s Glee Club. The concert met with an enthusiastic reception by Maryland students and faculty. The opportunities to hear good music on campus have been steadily increas- ing, and the interest shown indicates that the trend will continue. Included on the concert program were several numbers sung jointly by the two sponsoring organizations. Favorite presentations of the Chorus during ' Third rouK Klcbold. Rcmsberg. McLuckic.

Men ' s Glee Club Singers Toured Eastern Shore; Sang at Opening of World ' s Fair Ihe Men " s Glee Club formally opened the music season for the University on December 3 at Bethesda, where it sang before a capacity crowd for the benefit of the Community Chest. Later the organization participated in All- University Night, at which time it presented Fred Waring ' s arrangement of " " The Night is Young. " In March, at the invitation of the Maryland Casualty Club, the Glee Club sang in Balti- more. March also ushered in the biggest musi- cal event of the year on the campus when Emma Otero, internationally-known Cuban soprano, and Dr. Frank LaForge, accompanist and voice instructor of world-famous singers, presented the student body with an e ' ening of concert music. Because of a wonderful reception in 1938, the club decided to return to the Eastern Shore for its spring tour. Here it scored successful hits in the leading shore towns of Salisbury, Cambridge, Denton, and Annapolis. Immedi- ately following this tour, the Men ' s Glee Club of George " Washington University, recent win- ners of the National Intercollegiate Glee Club Sing, met with the local club in a joint concert. Highlighting the club " s activities of the cur- rent season was the invitation to sing in the Equitable Gardens at the New York " World ' s Fair. This invitation was secured through the recommendation of several well-known music critics, among whom was Fred Waring, na- tionally famous orchestra leader. Randall at Otero concert 77 Robert Kinney, president of the club and composer of the University of Maryland Alma Mater song, gained special recognition for the leadership which he displayed in club activities. Assisting President Kinney were; Alwyn Powell, vice-president; Annand Terl, secre- tary-treasurer; and Milton Cole, business manager. Student Band University Band Followed Teams, Presented Concerts on Campus The Student Band lost no time organising in the fall. By September it had to be ready to present " Sons of Old Maryland " to enthusi- astic rooters at Maryland ' s opening football game with Hampden-Sydney. The past year marked the thirteenth anni- ersary of Sergeant Otto Siebeneichen ' s expert direction. To him and to Major Chester West- fall, band adviser, go much credit for the pro- ficiency of this organization. In addition to College Park games, the band accompanied the team to Charlottesville for Papa and Paul the University of Virginia game, to Norfolk for the V.M.I, game, to Rutgers at New Bruns- wick, and to Western Maryland at Baltimore. In April the band presented an indoor con- cert — its first in several years. This was fol- lowed in May by the outdoor evening concerts which proved exceedingly popular among the students. Organization officers were ; J . Gibson Wilson, student captain; Richard Hart, business man- 178 ager; Paul Siebeneichen, drum major; Leonard Cranford, first sergeant; Howard Klug, quar- termaster. International Relations Club International Relations Club Heard World Affairs Authorities Ihe International Relations Club brought the world to the Maryland campus through the medium of guest speakers — authorities on matters of universal significance. The past year ' s guest speakers numbered three, all of whom are now faculty members of American University. They included Dr. Homberger, former German Vice-Minister of Transporta- tion ; Dr. Griffith, head of the Political Science Department; and Dr. Clement, Professor of Economics and co-editor of National Biog- raphy. Club administration was handled by Rich- ard Lee, president; Harry Hudson, vice-presi- dent ; Gertrude Plumer, secretary ; and Kath- arine Short, treasurer.

Later, called Theta Gam- ma, it improved its organization and increased its activities.

In order to make the coeds conscious of beauty aids, the club engaged Emile to speak on hair st les, cosmetics, and fashions. The drive for the standardization of sizes in wo- men ' s clothes was also sponsored on the Mary- land campus by the Bureau of Home Eco- nomics.

The rapid growth of this organization to well over one hundred mem- bers may be attributed to the fact that their purpose and sole aim was to " splash for fun. " Meetings were held twice each month at the beautiful Venetian Pool of the Shoreham Hotel. In addition to the usual swim, the members were given lessons in life saving and diving by competent officials. Once again the Gym-.Armory was the scene of the annual club dance. This year ' s affair was a great success because of the fine enter- tainment furnished by a local band. Late in the spring the club introduced a novel entertainment in the way of a water show. As an added attraction, exhibition per- formances were given by several outstanding swimmers and divers from nearby Washing- ton. This affair was such a huge success that it promises to be an annual one. A most successful season was clima.xed May fifteenth when members and dates journeyed to Beverly Beach for an afternoon of swim- ming and an evening of dancing. The officers of the club were : Howard Randall, president; Don Murphy, vice-presi- dent; Marjorie Ruppersberger, secretary-trea- surer.

Presbyterian Club Presbyterian Club Heard Wife of Former Maryland President Throughout the year, the Presbyterian Club concentrated on bringing prominent speakers to the campus, among them Mrs. H. J. Pat- terson, wife of a former president of the Uni- versity, who spoke on the religious back- ground of the school. As its contribution to Evensong, the club presented Dr. Mark Woods, who led a group discussion on re- ligious problems.

Newman Club Movie of Arctic Missionaries Enlightened Newman Members Led by President Joseph Pohlhaus, the New- man Club featured activities which formed an integral part of the school life for Catholics. In the religious field the club was a partici- pant in Evensong, securing several prominent Catholics as guest speakers. The spring activ- ities included an initiation and a communion breakfast, an installation of officers at the Franciscan Monastery, and a retreat on Palm Sunday. As another part of its program, the group promoted a number of interesting educational and social functions. " Wings Over the Arctic, " an enlightening movie featuring Father Schulte and his Eskimo missionaries, was sponsored and foreign speakers, including Maximum Piette of Belgium, addressed the club. Other officers of the club were: Alice Blum, first vice-president; J. Dent Abell, second vice- president; Marie Augustine, corresponding Newman officer relaxes secretary; Anna Lee Mudd, recording secre- tary; Harry Matthews, treasurer; and Rev- erend Leonard Walsh, chaplain. Baptist Union General Bible Discussions were Popular in Baptist Meetings Replacing the usual type of religious pro- gram with general Bible discussions in which the whole group participated, proved to be a popular innovation in the weekly Baptist Stu- dent Union meetings. Under the guidance of President Ann Calhoun Ames and Secretary Ruth Wegman, members have conducted Evensong several times during the year. On alternate Sundays they have taken charge of the morning services of the College Park Bap- tist Church. Helpful ideas for further religious 184 activities, as well as a pleasant social evening, were the results of a meeting held on campus with representatives of Baptist Student or- ganizations from nearby Maryland and Dis- trict colleges. Hillel Home Jewish Services Established on Campus by Rabbi Pilchik Under the guidance of Rabbi Ely E. Pilchik, Hillel House, an organization sponsored by the Hebrew fraternal order B ' nai B ' rith, made its appearance this year on the Maryland campus. A counterpart of a movement established on thirty other large campi, Hillel ' s objective was to supplement the Jewish student ' s uni- versity training with the cultural and spiritual expressions of his people. Toward this end re- ligious services were conducted on the Sabbath and Jewish holidays, and classes in Hebrew and Jewish history were inaugurated. Rabbi Pilchik was assisted by heads of the Jewish fraternities and sororities and five un- af liatecl Jewish students. Y.W.C.A. Y.W.C.A.

Daydodgers Club Grant for Student Center Fund Secured from S.G. A. by Daydodgers When the recently combined men ' s and women ' s Daydodgers Club held its first pic- nic in Rock Creek Park, the new members had the opportunity to become acquainted with the officers : Betsy Ross, president : Lida Sar- geant, vice-president ; Bessie Arnold, secretary ; and Paul Edwards, treasurer. Among the social activities was a dance for the members given in the Field House, and clever decorations admirably carried out the Christmas theme. Between semesters a wiener roast was held in Sligo Cabin. In February, the proverbial leap-year dance was given with the young ladies showering the gentlemen with much-welcomed attentions. For the April meeting Howard Cromwell, social chairman, planned another picnic, and as its concluding function, the club gave a formal farewell dance. Travelling headquarters Meeting — not m the Old Library Although social events seemed to take the limelight, club members were constructively inclined and managed to secure an appropria- tion from the Student Government Association for the creation of a student center. 187 Footlight Club Footlighters Expanded Activity to Radio; Presented Four Plays JTor ten successful seasons the Footlight Club has held to a time-honored standard of praise- worthy student acting and play production. Lack of adequate facilities has not killed the Muse, and this season the club continued as a vibrant and active organization. Under the leadership of David Seidel, with Alan Waite serving as vice-president, Sugar Langford as secretary, and Gino Valenti as treasurer, the club found time between re- hearsals to sponsor lecturers on the art of ap- plying make-up and design. The initial production of the season, under the capable direction of Ralph I. Williams, was the melodrama Double Door by Elizabeth McFadden, memorable not only for Mary Zurhorst ' s fine performance, but for the dis- covery of a star in freshman Aria Guild. Mary Zurhorst in her first major role gave dramatic Directors 1 1 ale and W illiani.s Lontei Aria g,ets Guild-ed credibility to the character of Victoria Van Bret, the jealous guardian of the family estate. Bert Coleman, cast as the younger brother, Rip, carried off an unsympathetic part with success. The second performance of the year was a sophisticated comedy farce by Noel Coward, masquerading under the innocuous title of Hay Fever. Only Judy Greenwood could have handled the difficult role of Judith Bliss — a characterization which called for the experi- ence and finesse of Maryland ' s top ranking footlighter. Dave Seidel, at home in many roles, demonstrated a flair for comedy as David Bliss. Freshmen Shirley Patterson and Marjorie Cook turned in veteran perform- ances, w hile Jane Anderson practically stole the show with her baby talk and rolling eyes. In the Bill of Divorcement by Clemence Dane, opportunities for dramatic action and effective dialogue were evenly distributed among the members of the cast. In the strong- 188 Fourth row: Folikolt.

The character acting of Tommy St. Clair in the part of the elderly and narrow-minded aunt, Hester Fairfield, was exceptional. Dave Seidel again proved to campus theatergoers his dramatic versatilitv bv the skill fulness Actors turn singers with which he stepped into the role of Hilary Fairfield. Milly Baitz gave to the part of Sydney Fair- field, a seventeen-year-old girl who mixed worldliness and intelligence with self-sacrifice, all the necessary igor and dash. Walter Neal came through with another character portrayal as Dr. Alliot, while Bill Ingraham in his initial performance forecast a future name on footlight programs. Dr. Charles Hale directed only one play this season, but he had all the local critics raving once more over his year ' s contribution, Hay Fever. Mrs. Evelyn I. Vernon of the Speech Department turned her hand to directing for the first time at Maryland by ably supervising A Bill of Divorcement. The club entered a new medium of expres- sion this year by presenting a series of plays over radio station WJSV. The network spon- sored a " Student Workshop " with the purpose in mind of providing an opportunity for am- Detective reports in " Double Door ' Gene Howard and Mary Zurhorst in " Double Door The Bliss family holds conference in " Hay Fever " 190 Contrasting moods in " Bill of Divorcement " ' Double Door " closes A little light on the subject Sobriety hits " Ha Fever " bitious students in nearby universities to gain broadcasting experience. Maryland ' s first presentation was The Val- iant, a one-act play done by Judy Greenwood, Jerry Prentice, Dave Seidel,and Bert Coleman. To Gino Valenti, Bill Ingraham, Earla Marshall, Frank Stevenson, Judy Greenwood, Dave Seidel, and Jerry Prentice go credit for the second " Workshop " production, Command Performance. Milly Baitz, not to be outdone by her fellow- Thespians, went on the air in a series of por- trayals of United States stamp heroines. The exceptionally smooth performance of The Valiant led to the selection of this play as Maryland ' s contribution to WJSV ' s one-act play contest. 191 Scenes from the operetta " Trial by Jury ' Clef and Key Club Renamed ; Operetta and Annual Varsity Show Produced Its new name — Clef and Key — was not the only change that the former Opera Club init- iated during the past year. The scope of activ- ities increased, the membership expanded, and the club gained consistently in campus pres- tige. In May, members of the club presented the second annual Varsity Show, " Include Me Out. " Modeled after last year ' s " Come Walk with Me, " the student-directed production with a cast of sixty was entirely original in plot and lyrics. Laurels go to Leonard Meakin, production manager and playwright ; to Frank Stevenson, musical director; and to Worthing- ton Talcott, assistant producer. The three-act musical comedy satirized campus institutions — politics, fraternities, and sororities. Subtleh ' . this satire of college af- fairs paralleled the national situation of the third term question. Efficient handling of publicity included Back row: Meakin, Tal- cott, Randall, Buhl, Tate, Jullien, Orpwood, Burklin, Stell, Powell, Cole, Va lent i, Moss, Schmitt, Springer, Bar- man, Zepp. Stevenson. Front row: Powers, Ray- mond, Hampshire, Snit- zer, Fisch, King. Wells, Kepner, Stevenson, Hincs. Jones. 192 The cast holds conference Love . Relaxation in the cast Hazard and Hollard rehearse radio advertising, the review of the perform- ance by dramatic critics from Washington newspapers, and a critique by Variety, well- known theatrical periodical. Club officers for the past year were: Gino Valenti, president; Elizabeth Powers, secre- tary; Robert Kinney, treasurer; Leonard Meakin, production manager. Harlan Randall was adviser. The only operatic production of the year was Gilbert and Sullivan ' s " Trial by Jury. " A satire on courts of law, the story dealt with a breach of promise suit. Baritone judge Jake Powell willingly consented to marry plaintiff Marian Bond, in order to adjourn the trial. Sharing the masculine lead with the judge was the fickle defendant Victor Buhl. Other im- portant characters were Robert Kinney, Charles Jones, and Robert BuUard. Ten bridesmaids and twelve jurors rounded out the cast. Production was handled by Clef and Key with the cooperation of the Vlen ' s Glee Club and the Women ' s Chorus. With the purpose in mind of furthering mu- sical activity for campus organizations when- ever possible, the Clef and Key sponsored the Glee Club ' s trip to the New York World ' s Fair. 193 Alpha Psi Omega IOTA CAST Honorary Dramatics Fraternity Founded at Fairmount State College in igiy Established at the University of Maryland in igzg MEMBERS: Mildred Baitz, Albert Coleman.

Williams, Jl5etween the acts of the first and last plays of the season the curtains were parted by Pres- ident Judy Greenwood, who proceeded with tlie customary tapping for Alpha Psi Omega. She enumerated the requirements for member- ship in the honorary. It is necessary that a prospective member shall have taken several minor parts, or two leading parts combined with a minor. Underlying the selection is, of course, the demonstration of outstanding dra- matic abilitv. Alpha Psi Omega contributed toward the furtherance of campus dramatics. This year the members functioned primarily as a play- reading committee. They studied and made reports on a number of plays to the Footlight Club and thus eliminated the confusion which had formerly arisen when all footlighters un- dertook the readings. The dance which Alpha Psi Omega gave to the Footlight Club was new in the history of both organisations, but its success made it a possible tradition. Other officers of the honorary were : Dave Seidel, vice-president; and Irvin Cook, sec- retary-treasurer. Coleman Greenwood Cook Jackson 194 FRENCH CLUB Third row: Holland.

Carl Blumenstein, former president of the local group, did honor to his Maryland associates when he presided as National Presi- dent of this convention at Goucher College, In addition to the regular discussions, the members of Der Deutsche Verein enjoyed fre- quent German movies, straw rides, picnics, and especially arranged folk dances. The of- ficers were: Helen Brooks, president; Virginia Hodson, secretary; and Gunther Werner, treasurer. French Club Campus French Group Seriously Attempted to Learn Language A ociFEROUS, affirmative answer unhesi- tatingly came from any French Club member in reply to the familiar question, " Parlez-vous francais ' ' " for under the leadership of Frances Lucas, president ; Louise Gardiner, vice-presi- dent ; Gayle Davis, secretary ; and Allan Gold- man, treasurer; the traditional diplomatic language was used. Amusement in the form of movies such as " The Great Illusion, " ' speakers, and picnics, increased the interna- tionalism of these students. .At the annual in- 195 tercollegiate meeting, the members demon- strated unusual ability, and their facile wield- ing of the French language invited the envy of the less linguistic-minded individuals. Spanish Club Spanish Movie, " La Zandunga, " Attended by Foreign Officials The Homecoming Day presentation of a unique float depicting Don Quixote and his servant. Poncho, set the pace for the Spanish Club ' s active season. Later, the club spon- sored a Spanish movie, " La Zandunga, " which was attended by members of the Mexican and Panamanian Embassies in Washington. The club provided tutoring for those students who found Spanish a difficult language. Steps were taken to recharter Delta Sigma Chi, the Spanish honorary fraternity. The officers panel included Jose Sanchiz, president; James Mal- colm, vice-president; Martha Meriam, sec- retary; and Francisco Lanza, treasurer. Civil Engineers Civil Engineers Participated in Washington Regional Meeting AIaryl.and members of the A.S.C.E. had the opportunity of participating during the past year in a Regional Conference held in Wash- ington.

In addition to group discussions of engineer- ing problems, monthly meetings featured out- side speakers and motion pictures. Student Grange Grange Officers Installed by State Master T. R. Brookes M.EMBERS of the Student Grange were hosts this year to representatives of the State Grange at a session held on the campus. The local or- ganization was fortunate in having the State Master, T. Roy Brookes, attend its first meet- ing and install the officers. In February an enjoyable luncheon-meet- ing was held in the Lord Baltimore Hotel for Scott Whiteford, master; Mildred Melton, secretary; and Doris McFarland, lecturer. Encouraged by thirteen new initiates and a total enrollment of forty-four, the Maryland Student Grange mixed its formal activities with occasional dances, wiener roasts, and parties. 198 F.F.A.

The club again sponsored the annual hitting and Showing Contest on campus. Coopera- tion of students and dairymen throughout the state helped make the affair a success. The club was led by Joseph Pohlhaus, with Robert Stevens, vice-president; Edith Far- rington, secretary; George Hoshall, treasurer. Future Farmers Members Enjoyed Active Season; " Ag " Clubs Joined in Barn Dance Those agricultural students who expected to teach vocational agriculture in high schools were members of the collegiate chapter of the Future Farmers of America. A float in the Homecoming Day parade inaugurated an unusually active season un- der the leadership of Louis Ahalt, president; George Hoshall, vice-president; Gist Welling, secretary; Arthur Rudy, treasurer. A dance at the A.G.R. house, a campfire and wiener roast, and later in the spring a straw ride, were The fanner goes to town . . .

Thus, the Terrapin Trail Club began the 1939-40 season hikes, outdoor roasts, and overnight jaunts. The trailers sought out the mysteries of Turkey Run, Devil ' s Den, and the Frederick City Water Shed. The overnight visit to Pine Grove Furnace, located in Pennsylvania ' s Piney Mountain, was so interesting that the club made a similar trip to Elizabeth Furnace in Virginia. " Washington ' s Birthday saw the University group joined by the Mountain Club of Baltimore. Together they went to Valley Forge, where they climbed the lookout tower and clambered over historic trenches. Officers of the club were: John Secrest, president; Orville Greenwood, vice-president; Georgianna Calver, secretary; and Edward Rehberger, Jr., treasurer. The trailers were fortunate in having Dr. and Mrs. Herman duBuy as their advisers. These two spent many hours assisting the members with their plans, and accompanied them on their journeys. The club members became civic minded and combined business with pleasure when they helped the local botanists prepare flora of the District of Columbia and vicinity. Lest the foreign exploits of the club give the impres- sion that its home grounds held no enchant- ment, the extremely successful Halloween and Valentine Day parties must be mentioned.

Front row: Boose, Davis, Powers. l LARGE group of wide-eyed young stu- dents made their first appearance on Mary- land ' s campus in the fall of 1937, not realizing that collectively they comprised what was to go down in the history of the University as the Class of 1 94 1 . After choosing maroon and gray for its colors, the class administered a healthy drenching to the sophomores in the annual struggle at Paint Branch. Surviving the onslaught of the Greeks and successfully meeting the demands of the fac- ulty, the class moved on to its second semester of academic experience and held a Freshman Frolic, at which Marylanders swung out to the tunes of Zel Smith and his orchestra. Sophomore year recalls many vivid memories to the Class of " 41. The group distinguished itself by sending the new crop of freshmen to a watery defeat in the tug-of-war. The Sopho- more Prom was unique because of the music furnished by Janice Williams and her all-girl orchestra. The class organ- ized a committee which worked to se- cure better facilities for the daydodgers. Its members achieved prominence in scholastic and athletic endeavors and figured conspicu- ously in campus activities. With half their college careers behind them, the ' 41 students advanced a notch and became full-fledged juniors. For the third time they chose Frank Davis as their president. Other officers were: Gino V ' alenti, vice-president; Barbara Boose, secretary; Dave Johnson, treasurer; Elizabeth Powers, historian; Fran- ces Rosenbusch, women ' s representative ; Rob- ert Rice, men ' s representative. Sign here, please 201 Smdiiiii leader.s j3 re pare to prom After weeks of hard work and cautious preparation, the junior Class presented the crowning social event of the year — its annual " Prom " to the Seniors. The affair was held in the grand ballroom of the Willard Hotel in Washington with Glen Gray and his Casa Lomas providing their danceable tunes. The promenade was led by Gene O ch- senreiter with Nancy King, and class President Frank Davis, accompanied by Libby Powers. Feature of the evening for many of the prom goers was the sparkling music of- fered by Gray. With such stars as " Sonny " Dunham, MacGershon, and Johnny Hutchinson, Glen proceeded to thrill the crowd with one well-organized piece after another. Mr. Gray ' s handsome counte- nance drew the plaudits of the coeds and his signature was in constant demand. The musical highlight of the evening was Dunham ' s splendid work on the trumpet in " Memories of You. " The dance was chaperoned by the fol- lowing members of the faculty : Colonel and Mrs. Thomas D. Finley, Doctor and Mrs. J . E. Faber, Doctor and Mrs. Ronald Bamford, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Williams, Doctor and Mrs. Levin B. Broughton, and Mr. and Mrs. George F. Pollock. However, many more faculty members attended the dance and enjoyed it to the utmost. Glen Gray admirers gather round 202 Promenade ' s laM lap Assisting Chairman Ochsenreiter were the following committee heads: John Brinckerhoff, dance committee; Judy Woodring and Douglass Cassell, co-chair- men of the bid committee; Charles Allen, promenade committee; Marguerite Hall, chaperon committee. To these chairmen and their committees goes credit for an unforgettable prom. Handsome pendants bearing the Maryland seal, and colorful programs were souvenirs of the evening. With one lingering glance over three years packed full of experiences, the Ju- niors turn to meet the coming year when they will complete the last of their under- graduate days.

A steak fry, movies, and dance at Sligo Park Cabin took the bacteriologists ' minds off their work on the evening of Decem- ber 7. " The Tuberculin Reaction " was the topic for a speech given by Dr. L. W. Parr following the second semester initia- tion. Those bacteriology majors were in- ducted who had maintained an all-time average of 2.75 or better. Officers for the year were: Joshua M.

The Maryland chapter began its exist- ence in 1923 as Phi Mu, and largely owes its establishment to the encouragement and aid given by the present Dean of Engineering, S. S. Steinberg. In recog- nition of the good work done, Phi Mu became Tau Beta Pi in 1929. During the past year the members had the opportunity of hearing lectures and discussions of current engineering prob- lems by W. X. Wilberding, consulting engineer of Washington, and by Charles H. Spencer, supervising engineer of the Interstate Commerce Commission. Officers for the year were George M.

After last fall ' s initiation the members were entertained by Dean Marie Mount and the Home Economics faculty at a banquet at Iron Gate Inn in Washington. Prominent women in the field of home economics spoke at the spring initiation banquet. This year the fraternity established a Student Loan Fund for Home Economics girls who could not afford to continue their college careers. A prize was also offered to the freshman girl in the College of Home Economics who obtained the highest average in her class.

For all graduates, prominent and retiring, a glorious June Week wrote finis to college careers and bade them Godspeed in their quest for a measure of the success that had come to their es- tablished predecessors. 210 MOVES TO O P E Ji SEA 211 Judy Greenwood Secretary Thomas Coleman President ILLIAM McAIaNUS Vice-President Student Government Association MEMBERS: Thomas L.

Ihe fvlen ' s League, the Women ' s League, the Student Life Cominittee, and the Executive Council are composite parts of the Student Government Associa- tion. The combination, however, does not involve a loss of the independent status of each; it is a medium through which each has an equal voice in the solu- tion of mutual problems. The office of president carries the great- est prestige of student elected positions. As supervisor of all four organizations, the president is an ex-officio member of each. This year the president of the Student Government Association was Thomas Coleman, an ardent advocate of a new deal for students. He succeeded in effect- ing many programs, long desired by the students, Tom was spokesman at the S.G.A. meeting during Freshman Orien- tation Week. He introduced the campus leaders, each of whom in his turn briefly explained to the freshmen the organiza- tion which he represented. One of the first projects introduced was 212 the supervision of freshmen elections. It inaugurated stump speeches whereby freshmen were able to gather some idea of the abilities and qualifications of their class-officer candidates. The S.G.A. was prompt in conducting a thorough and fair in estigation of the student bookstore situation. As a result of this inquiry, the price of all books was reduced by ten per cent. After campaigning for a better ex- amination schedule for an entire semes- ter, the organization gained its point in February with the announcement of a standard examination schedule in the College of Arts and Sciences. The Student Government Association sponsored a " " Charlie Keller Day " in honor of the new king of the big leagues. Charlie, one of Maryland ' s most famous alumni, was honored by a luncheon, a re- view, and an informal student rally. Then President Coleman presented him with a trophy on behalf of the student body. The Men ' s and Women ' s Leagues, with the sponsorship of the S.G.A. , headed an investigation of conditions in the Univer- sity Dining Hall. As a result a new order was instituted for the students through the aid of Ralph Williams, assistant dean of men, and a measure of satisfaction was achieved by the close of the year. The S.G.A. determined to bring to prominence the endemic Student Union problem. By appropriating more than fourteen hundred dollars, the Association instituted a drive to interest the admin- istration and alumni in furnishing further funds for the proposed building. f J L f f w ' ' Ames Boose Brown Coleman CAirry Danlorth Davis Fisher Greenwood Irvine Kehoc Lee McManus Mercer Merritc Paterson Ruppersberger 213 MEN ' S AND WOMEN ' S GOVERNING BODIES Sib i. 1 Albarano Budkoff Cox Dodson Malcolm McGregor Race Rice Springer Rudy The Mens League MEMBERS: Ralph Albarano, Bernard Aymold, Carl Bacharach, William Baghy, John Bennett, Nicholas Budkoff, Newton Cox, Charles Dodson.

With the great increase of resident students in the past year, the responsi- bility of maintaining discipline in the new dormitories and dining hall became an important one for the Men ' s League. However, with the cooperation of the students, the task was well administered. The " dorm " students received a real treat this year when the school appro- priated funds for three recreation rooms in Calvert Hall which were equipped with tile floors, card tables, chairs, lounges, and radios. A telephone system was also installed, with a switchboard in the main office and extensions to all sections and floors of the various dormitories. The care and upkeep of these improvements were charged to the Men ' s League and its numerous proctors. In an effort to promote good will among the members of the student body, many new policies were instigated. A dormitory intramural league was formed, inviting competition between the various sections in football, basketball, and volleyball. Dinner-dances were held once a week in the Women ' s Field House, which proved to be the greatest step the league has ever taken toward the promotion of good fel- lowship among the students. The Women s League MEMBERS: Margaret Bjorge, Mary Virginia Bolden, Laura Duncan, Ruth Evans, Hester Far- low, Sara Ferrell, Louise Gardiner, Carolyn Gray, Ann Griffith, Doris Groves, Helen Groves, Sue Gusack, Dorothy Harris, Nancy Holland, Mar- jorie Huyck, Ann Irvine, Harriet Kirkman, Vir- ginia Maxwell, Mildred Melton, Emma Mike, Bess Paterson, Mary Powell, Lillian Powers, Frances Price, Ann Roberson, Arlene Rosenbluth, Frances Rosenbusch, Marjorie Ruppersberger, 214 Harriet Sandman, Doris Schutrumpf, Margaret Seiter, Mary Lee Taylor, Ruth Wegman, Vir- ginia Wood, Judy Woodring. Al XTHOUGH its primary purpose is the formulating and enforcing of rules and regulations pertaining to campus women, the Women ' s League distinguished itself during the past year by sponsoring va- rious projects for entertainment and char- itable purposes. In its functions the mem- bers, consisting of representatives from every class, dormitory, sorority, and off- campus house, were directed by Bess Peterson as president, Ann Irvine as vice-president, and Carolyn Gray as secretary. Probably the most outstanding of the James H. Kehoe Bess Paterson Men ' s League President Women ' s League President league ' s entertainments was the all- women ' s circus party, which took the place of the usual formal tea.

The Military Department, under its new professor of Military Science and Tactics, Lt. Colonel Thomas D. Finley, completed another highly successful year, with an enrollment greater than ever before. The regiment started operations last fall at a strength of just under 1,300, of which 65 were Senior cadet officers and 81 were Junior sergeants. Casualties suf- fered in mid-year engagements brought its number down to about i ,200. Interest in their work was manifested by all classes, by " basics " in ranks as well as by those in command. In line with well established tradition here, instructors The Colonel at ease A lesson in tactics constantly sought to produce results through cooperation rather than coercion. Members of the ROTC were impressed with the idea that they were students of methods of military training and dis- cipline. On the drill field, responsibility for the instruction and drilling of the regiment was placed upon the shoulders of the cadet officers. By this means they ob- tained practical experience in leadership and the exercise of command and so quali- fied in these important respects for com- missions as reserve officers. The depart- ment was fortunate in having among its advanced students a large number of men prominent in athletics and other campus activities. Such men were used to leader- 21:6 Standing: Norris, Uhrinak, Mars. Seated: Westfall, Jones, Finley, Weiser, Griswold. ship and teamwork, and quickly de- veloped into capable commanders. Under their orders, and with the men in ranks animated by the spirit of playing the game, the regiment achieved the standard of a snappy, well drilled organ- ization. Parades and reviews given for distinguished visitors throughout the year brought credit to the unit and University. The regiment looked forward to the an- nual War Department inspection and Military Day, hopeful that the " excel- lent " rating, earned for many consecutive years, would again be awarded. From what he sees, the outsider may believe that the ROTC is principally con- cerned with marching about the drill field and parading to martial music. As a mat- ter of fact, this is but a minor feature of the course in military training which, over a four-year period supplemented by six weeks in camp, acquaints its graduates with all the duties of an infantry lieuten- ant in peace or war. Illustrative of the value of this training is the fact that two cadets have been recommended for direct commission in the Regular Army and others in the Marine Corps. The University of Maryland ROTC has four times received the highest rating in the corps area, as evidenced by the blue stars on the sleeve of each c adet. This honor has been bestowed on the unit as a result of its fine performance on Military Day of all types of drill ranging from the manual of arms to the pitching of tents. In rifle competition the unit has shown outstanding prowess, and Colonel Fin- ley ' s of ce is filled with awards won by the ROTC team in the past several years. 217 A CAMP NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN Targets UP!

The Charlie Keller Day celebration began with a luncheon in his honor at which time old members of the baseball team who played with Charlie were pres- ent. Following the luncheon, Keller, Dr. Byrd, Lt. Colonel Finley, and other guests reviewed the ROTC regiment. After the review, short speeches were made by the guests of honor. Burton Shipley, Maryland ' s baseball coach, mod- estly expounded on the part he played in the young outfielder ' s success.

The Maryland chapter of Scabbard and Blade, in addition to training the mem- bers of Pershing Rifles, represented the national organization at ceremonies con- ducted at Arlington in October, and pre- sented the Military Ball in the Gym- Armory in February. The members were busy throughout the year formulating plans for the four-day national conven- tion to be held on campus in November. At the first tapping this year, Major Griswold, Colonel Finley, and Major Wysor were inducted. Another tapping was held in the spring. Scabbard and Blade was headed by Capt. Thomas Riley. He was assisted by First Lieut. Merle Preble and First Sgt. William Souder. Military Ball vJn the eve of George Washington ' s Birthday, martial law invaded the Mary- land campus as both men and women students mobilized in the Gym-Armor ' for the annual Military Ball. Uniforms were the order of the day and all swains were attired either in the khaki which they wore while trudging over the drill COMPANY I THIRD REGIMENT Honorary Military Fraternity Founded at the Uni ersity of Wisconsin in 1904 Established at the University of Maryland in 7922 Taps 7 ajDs 227 field, or in civilian full-dress. The Gym- nasium, appropriately decorated with American flags, tri-colored banners, and blue bunting, fairly bristled with the plain and fancy ammunition which stood omi- nously on the side lines of the dance floor. The sole unmilitaristic feature of the eve- ning was the Rolling Rhythm of Jack Wardlaw and his Orchestra. Coeds attending, from the Colonels Lady to Judy O ' Grady, received com- pacts as favors styled in the true military manner. Corsages were ruled out for the evening, but a beautiful bouquet of red roses was presented to the Regimental Sponsor, Louise Mercer, at the beginning of the Grand March. Climax of the ball came when promenaders, headed by Col. Merle Preble with Miss Mercer, and Lieut. Colonel Thomas Coleman with Tillie Boose, marched under an arch of crossed sabers held by the Senior ROTC officers.

Under the captaincy of Thomas W. Riley and his staff, composed of Robert Langhead, First Lieutenant, and John C. Marzolf, Thomas Watson and John Reckord, Second Lieutenants, the Pershing Rifles have grown steadily in number and in activity participation. Fall initiation exercises held at Fort Meade were followed by an inspection tour of the grounds where the initiates gained an insight of military life. Spring initiation brought the number of the unit to ninety men and five officers. Clima.xing a year of extensive drill and practice, the unit presented its familiar " Zouave Drill " at All-University Night. The annual banquet and spring dance concluded the 1940 season of activity.

Man of the evening was Dick Lee, presi- dent of the honorary, accompanied by Helen Rodgers. Assisting Dick was Vice- President Bill Brown with Judy Green- wood. The music of Joe Hudson and his Royal Knights, styled " the sweetest dance music in America, " furnished the melodies for the evening. Symbolic of the organization were large glittering ODK keys, suspended from the balcony of the Gym-Armory. The stellar attraction at the Cotillion was the unique promenade in which the socialites marched in concentric circles until the leaders reached the center, and then wove their way out again to the edge of the dance floor.

In March it gained even further recognition for the Charm School ; coeds gave an en- thusiastic reception to the two lectures it sponsored on posture, hair styling, eti- quette, and charm. Members assisted the Dean of Women during Freshmen Orientation Week. Later they gave a tea to the junior transfer women and acquainted them with campus organizations and customs. Dinner meetings for the year included one in honor of the advisers given in the private dining room on campus, and another at the University Club in Wash- ington for the Mortar Board sectional director, Miss Page Drinker. Officers for the year were : Ann Ames, president ; Mary Lee Ross, vice-president; Elizabeth Harrover, secretary: Bertha Langford, treasurer. On May Day, concluding the program in honor of the Queen, the ten members dressed in caps and gowns, tapped those junior girls outstanding in service, schol- arship, and leadership, who were to be the active Mortar Boarders in their senior year.

A CRITERION of excellent scholarship has limited membership in Phi Kappa Phi, honorary scholastic fraternity, to a chosen few. Members of the organization were selected twice during the school year. In the fall the top-ranking senior of each college was tapped, and in June seniors who stood in the upper eighth of the grad- uating class were made members. Encouraging fine scholarship and aid- ing in the development of character are the basic ideals of the fraternity. To fos- ter those aims and to stimulate further achievement in graduate work, several fellowships have been offered each year to deserving Phi Kappa Phis. In this man- ner the traditions of the fraternity have been perpetuated. Through the bonds of membership the alumni have continued their associations with the University and have contributed encouragement and interest to the achie ' - ments of the active college group. 235 ,4 study m Brown JLiME, tide, and graduation wait for no man. Yesterday six hundred timid high school graduates arrived at College Park to acquire training that was to last them a lifetime. Today they leave this impor- tant chapter in their lives to return to a world apart from cokes, bull sessions, pledge pins, and Rossbourgs. In the fall of thirty-six. Bob Lodge of Baltimore captained the tribe of eager rats and mice. Theirs was the spirit of the old guard — nights of praying for rain, days of cow-towing to sophomores, and then the last glorious showdown on the water tower. When the battle-scarred old landmark was dismantled that year, it was the big gold ' 40 that went down with it. A year passed and Carl Goller in- herited the presidency of the Sopho- more Class. New Freshmen dragged The Seniors the second yearlings through the mud on struggle day, but they came through with newly acquired dignity. Classes were no longer a grim duty but began to take on a certain amount of interest. Next year, as upperclassmen, Tom Coleman was elected president. The old Rossbourg Inn was restored to its former colonial dignity, and every week brought plans for new buildings on campus. George Lawrence led the Prom to the music of Eddie Duchin. Mortar Board tapped ten girls, more than ever before in the history of the chapter. And so they came to their swan song. Bill Brown took over the reins for the last year. New buildings sprang up overnight on every available spot on the hill. About March that awful lump-in-the-throat sen- sation began to crop up as the last page was turned. And then — -it was June Week and the colorful chapter entitled Maryland was ended. I.ejt to right: Badenhoop, Ciirrv, Wilson 236 S E K I O R S 19 4 Henrietta T. Abrahams East Orange, N.J. B.S.

With it rode the last vestige of collegiate days, an embodiment of class spirit, a recollection of happy social life, a realization of greater attainment. Thus fortified, the graduate accepted his diploma and strode forth from the protective portals of his Alma Vlater. Th, Planners Standing: Groves, LeFrak, Huffer, Valenstein, Jackson, Kemp, Bland, Bamman, Irvine. Sitting: Curry, Parks, general chairman, Hottcl. The last lunch O ' Conor honored The Program J UNE Week with its series of picnics, banquets, and dances was held this year — contrary to its name — in the last week of May. Although it was last, it was in no way less wonderful than the other activi- ties on the University ' s social calendar. The Seniors mingled their final taste of " campus capers " with a bit of sadness; the undergraduates enjoyed to the high- est degree the last formal functions before their long summer vacation. Coming at the end of finals with all of the cramming, dateless nights, and wor- ries which accompany them, the activi- ties were supported with a spirit even more gay and enthusiastic than usual. Climaxing this period of gaiety came the solemn and memorable commence- ment exercises with the long desired di- plomas, symbols of all that college has meant to the graduates. 261 . . . And on to Greater Heights Into a realm of practical endeavor each year steps a new senior class, some few of its num- ber destined to rise to heights of greatness and to bring honor to their University. This section is dedicated to six of Maryland ' s sons who have so distinguished themselves. IN GOVERNMENTAL ACTIVITT GOVERNOR HERBERT R. O ' CONOR i HE Class of 1920 of the University Law School claims as its most illustrious member the first citizen of Mary- land, Governor Herbert R. O ' Conor. Admitted to the bar in 19 19, before his graduation, Governor O ' Conor progressed successively through the offices of State ' s At- torney, People ' s Counsel to the Public Service Commis- sion, and Attorney General of the State. He rose to his present high position in 1938. SENATOR MILLARD TYDINGS VERSATILITY is a forte of Millard Tydings, three times United States Senator from the State of Maryland, for his political career is rather well removed from his under- graduate Engineering days and from the journalistic ten- dencies he displayed as editor of the first campus news- paper, the 1 9 10 Triangle. By way of further divergence, he was recipient of an honorary degree of LL.D. from his Alma Mater in 1937. m rUE FIELD OF EDUCATIOKi DR. HARRY CLIFTON BYRD Or. Harry Clifton Byrd, progressive president of the University, has been one of the most outstanding alumni of the institution. A member of the Class of 1 908, College of Engineering, " " Curly " made his mark as a student ath- lete and then won laurels as a minor league baseball player, successful track and football coach, and Director of .Athletics at Maryland. From these positions he rose to assistant to the president, vice-president, and finally president in 1935. 262 . . . m THE SPORTS WORLD CHARLES KELLER L OLLEGiATE diamond or major league baseball park ap- pear alike to " Our Boy Charlie " Keller, star of the 1939 World Series in his first year with the New ' ork Yankees. More cherished for Marylanders, however, are memories of his feats as mainstay of the Old Line baseball team and as all-state basketball star of 1937. Charlie received his diploma from the College of Agriculture in 1938. m LITERARY ETiDEAVOR MUNRO LEAF jNot so long ago on the University campus dwelt Munro Leaf, a young man destined to capture the fancy of the nation with his whimsical tales of Ferdinand the Bull, . oodle, Manners Can Be Fun, and the Watching Bird. Graduates of 1927 remember him as treasurer of their class, an ROTC captain, and a member of the lacrosse team. Kappa Alpha claims him as a brother. . . . m BUSINESS AFFAIRS EDMUND C. MAYO It is a far cry from the days of football player " Pug " Mayo, Engineering student of the Class of 1904, to the title of President Edmund C. Mayo of the Gorham Silver Company; yet such is the story of his achievement. Tan- gible evidence of Mr. Mayo ' s continued respect for Mary- land tradition lies in his company ' s bronze cast of the Terrapin which guards the Coliseum. 263 Here Are Some Extras the Camera Caught . 2b4 But Tou Should Have Seen the Ones That Got Away 2b5 Appreciation io the 1940 Terrapin staff, possessor of fessional associates for technical advice or only a limited knowledge of the vagaries of experienced criticism of their undertakings, publication work, the road from preliminary The realization that a patient, capable reply planning to ultimate completion of its effort would be forthcoming remained always as a stretched out long and rocky. Frequently, comforting thought. In appreciation of their during the year-long preparation, did the stu- kind cooperation this page is dedicated to dent editors turn to their advisers and pro- those friends of the i94oTerr. pin. TO . . . Mr. O. Raymond Carrington, faculty adviser of the Terrapin, for his willing counsel and beautiful art work ; Mr. Harry Laxelle, of Thomsen-Ellis-Hutton Company, for his technical recommendations on printing, his patience with a sometimes delinquent staff, and his personal interest in the success of this volume ; Mr. C. Gordon Brightman, of Jahn and Oilier Engraving Company, for his editorial suggestions as to style, layout, and art work, his ideas as to modes of copy expression, and his interest in general : Mr. Harry Baliban, of Merin-Balihan Photographers, for his fine handling of indi idual pictures and the excellent service w hich his firm rendered; Mr. Dale Nichols for his striking design which hits exactly the proper note in symbolizing the progress of the Uni ' ersity that this book attempts to depict ; Mr. Josef Schiff, for his photographic interpretations and selection of Maryland ' s beauties which has served to create greater interest and a more successful section than ever before : Mr. William Deighton, of S. K. Smith Company, makers of Molloy-Made covers, for his inter-, est and assistance in helping the Terrapin solve its 1Q40 cover problem; The personnel of the companies that ser -ed the 1940 Terrapin and the persons on the Mary- land campus w ho contributed either b ' direct effort or by their cooperation . . .
