RAYMOND CARRINGTON - FACULTY ADVISER one- FOR NINETEEN FORTY-TWO The Annual Publication of THE STUDENT BODY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK ' MARYLAND DEDICATION We have dedicated this volume of the Terrapin to a theme of influences, those influences which the University of Maryland exerts upon its students, and through them, upon their communities, states, and finally, the nation. ioMORROW, AND TOMORROW, AND TOMORROW. " Mail builds his life around that single word. It is the fountain of youth, the lodestone of the eternal, the hope of generations yet unborn. When a madman de- stroys the world we know, those of us who are left sigh and patiently go to work rebuilding for our children and our children ' s children. To build for the future, we must know how to build, we must have the right tools with which to build, we must educate ourselves that we may leave a firm foundation for those who will follow. No building was ever erected, no great work of literature written in a year or a hundred years. Progress is the result of a thousand, ten thousand years of unremitting toil as man dragged himself out of the primeval ooze into the dawn of civili- zation. The University of Maryland is dedicated to progress. We have here a melting pot for the culture, the learning of this hemisphere and of the Europe that was. The nation has sent us her engineers, her businessmen, her poets, her scientists, and her administrators, and together they have welded a great university. She has sent us, too, her boys and girls. They have come from every state in the Union, from South America, and from across the seas. They have all been different, and yet they have all been alike in that they have carried as their key to the university ' s gates the desire, the willingness to learn. They have come to us as boys and girls and we have returned them, each to his own place, men and women, wiser perhaps, and at least prepared to take up their share of tomorrow ' s work, to shoulder their part of the burden of life. Wherever they go, a part of the university goes with them. Con- versely, each of them has left an indelible imprint of himself on the uni- versity, its life, and its customs. For good or evil, the University of Mary- land draws its life blood from the great cities, the farms, the villages, from every place and station in life. We keep that life blood, the youth of America, for a little while, and then return it, laden with life for the future, for man ' s upward climb into the bright, new day. We, therefore, dedicate this book to the same theme to which, by its very nature, the university has been dedicated. The thread that weaves these pages into a single tapestry is one of influences, influences beginning at the university and slowly widening, in ever-expanding circles until they encompass the nation, perhaps the earth. These are the immediate in- fluences one center of learning has upon the world. Multiply them a thousand fold, send them forth, and progress follows with enlightenment in its train, enlightenment for a world that sorely needs it. To these basic principles we have dedicated this book in the hope that men may someday take them up and carry them forward as they now carry the battle flags of embitsgred nations. . £ IN MEMORIAM Dr. Thomas Hardy Taliaferro AN OUTSTANDING EDUCATOR AND GALLANT GENTLEMAN, DR. THOMAS HARDY TALIAFERRO, DEAN EMERITUS OF THE UNIVERSITY, LEFT WITH US A RECORD OF HIGH IDEALS AND DEVOTED, UNSELFISH SERVICE.

Broughton inE College of Arts and Sciences, most heterogeneous of the colleges, trains its stu- dents for many fields of endeavor and service. Though it stresses the liberal arts and sciences, courses are practical, leading to definite careers. The college influences its students in many ways, leading some to choose careers in social service work, some in the sciences, some in law and medicine, some in pyschology, and others in the liberal arts. Outstanding educators in many fields have gathered under the banner of the col- lege to impart some of their knowledge to the students and to teach them to lead useful lives. Whatever courses the students take they are prepared to be of some service to their university, their state, and the nation. Some remain to do Dr. Tobias Dantzig Prof. Charles Eichlin Dr. Charles Hale Dr. John Jenkins Dr. Nathan Drake Dr. Wesley Gewehr Dr. Lawrence Howard Dr. Carl Joslyn 22 graJua:c work .hkI cd ri-Mcli, wliilc ocHlts i;o on to the protcssional schools to contiiniL- their crain- ing.

Steinberg J ew fields were opened to students in the COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Ihe College of Engineering is de- voted to the teaching of the latest methods and practices in all ot the fields of engineering includ- ing several comparatix ' ely new branches. Engineering has always been an important factor in the advance of civilization, and it is even more so today. The nation is crying for well- trained engineers who ha e the ability to speed production, and to dexelop new, improved engi- neering techniques. The College of Engineering has kept abreast of the trends in the field, and its influence will be felt throughout the profession, aiding in the war efi ort and carrying on the advance of civilization after the destructi e influences cease. Prof. George Corcoran Dr. Wilbert Huff Dr. John Younger 23 COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE dealt with problems of increased food production Dean Thomas B. Symons INo PHASE OF THE WORK at thc Uni- versity comes in closer contact with the people of Maryland than that of the College of Agricul- ture which has been especially busy during the last year in cooperation with federal and state agencies in the " all-out " effort for increased food production. From the standpoint of the student the strength of the College of Agriculture lies in the fact that there is a very close coordination between the in- structional, research, extension, and regulatory kmctions within the various departments. Those who give instruction to the students are closely associated with these various branches of service and in many cases devote a portion of their time to one or more of these activities. This close coordination of instructional, re- search, extension, and regulatory work results in a stronger faculty and a higher degree of speciali- zation than would otherwise be possible.

It equips the students with the knowledge and techniques neces- sary to provide better nutrition for the nation, soK ' c clothing and textile problems, teach home economics, and carry on research and extension. Women m home economics are needed in prac- tically every Held of defense. Equally, it not more important than professional training, the college pro ' ides a sound homemaking education. The homes made strong by the homcmakers build good communities. They in turn reflect on the state and the state on the nation. Miss Vienna Curliss Mrs. Frieda McFarland Mrs. Claribel Welsh 25 COLLEGE OF COMMERCE Studied industrial and business requirements Dean W. Mackenzie Stevens In attempting to prepare its students for positions in modern large scale enterprise, the College of Commerce stresses the importance of orderly thinking and general financial procedure, which are so essential to success in their chosen fields. Through its graduates, the College of Com- merce is exerting a strong influence in the field of commerce and industry in Maryland and other states. In turn the college will play an increasingly important role in the nation ' s war efforts, through service in the various defense industries. Dr. Allan Gruchy Dr. Alpheus Marshall Prof. S. M.

It is through these students that the influence ol the state will he felt by the nation. This influence will be felt not only by the residents of the cities and towns in which the graduates make their homes, but also by the men ol the armed services ot the United States. The Base Unit No. 2, organized by the University Hospital for overseas duty, has already left for the Far Eastern Front. In order to enter more lorcefullv into the cur- il ' . A_i_v_._ i Miss Annie Crighton rent war eflort the Nursing School has speeded up its training course, which has come to be one of the finest of its type in the country. Chief factor ol the new program is the moving up of the State Board examinations which every graduate must complete successfully before she can practice nursing. 27 w v mif nTm ItT V OF ' f MARYLAND 1 fe ' MARY ANN GRIFFITH, Secretary-Treasurer; WILLIAM HOLBROOK, President; LARRY MacKENZIE, Vice-President. STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION was a in between the students and the administration Ihe most IMPORTANT action of the Student Government Association this year was the estabhshment of a Student Defense Council. This council sponsored the collections of waste paper from the students and gave a series of after- noon tea dances and one evening aflair, the pro- ceeds of which went to the Defense Fund. The S.G.A. also drafted a reorganized plan of student Two cans of food permitted students to dance for charity. activities to comply with the three semester sys- tem and put into effect a plan for the cooperative purchase of gasoline and auto supplies by the students. An improved lost and found system with a central office in the General Service Building was set up.

The estabhshment ol an organized social calendar created a system whereby all social events were signed up on the social calendar at the start of the school year. C n Homecomiiii; Day, the S.G.A. accepted Irom the Llass of igio the new gate located be- tuccn the Rossborough Inn and the Dairy Build- ing, and, on the same day, sponsored the Home- coming Parade and the crowning ol the beauty queen between halves of the football game. Dur- ing the spring, representatives of Student Govern- ment Associations from Maine to ' ' irginia held their annual con encion licre. Our S.G.A played host to this gathering. Mainly responsible for the success of the Student Government Association this year was President William Holbrook, as- sisted by Larry MacKenzie, vice-president; and Mary Ann Griffith, secretary-treasurer. Other members of the S.G.A. included the presidents and secretaries ol all tour classes, presidents of the Panhcllcnic Council, Interfraternity Council, O.D.K., Women ' s League, Men ' s League, Mor- tar Board, and the editor ot the student paper.

MEN ' S LEAGUE Ihis year the Men ' s League strayed into greener fields and spread its influence over the entire men ' s student body when it acquired a representative from each class as well as from the Interfraternity Council, hi past years the league had kept its fatherly eye on the dormitories alone. Through its new contacts with the classes and the fraternities the league has kept a check on the prob- lems of all men enrolled in the university. How- ever, as usual the main part of the organization ' s time was devoted to the maintenance of discipline in the men ' s dorms. Working with the administration and student publicity director Judson Bell, the league success- tuUy conducted a campaign to stop the rackets used to extort money from the trcshmcn. In con- junction with the work ot the Student Defense Council the league appointed student air-raid wardens to act as aids to the Student Assistants in the dormitories in case of an air raid, and also helped the council in the collection of waste paper and hooks from the dorm dwellers. A trophy to be awarded annually to the most outstanding man in intramural athletics was intro- duced this year with the hope that this award will become a permanent award in the university. The social event ot the year for the Men ' s League was their spring dance held in the Gym- Armory. Other entertainment during the year included movies shown in the men ' s dormitories. Robert Searls headed the group for the year and the league representatives were Charles Davis, Bill Krehnbrink, Thomas Galbreath, James Forbes, and John Eichnor, who leit school in February and was replaced by Don ShurhoL. 30 WOMEN ' S LEAGUE liiE Women ' s League was urgamzcJ CO encourage cooperation amoni; all women scu dents on campus and to set up a gmerning system which uiHild allow each girl a chance to li e hap- pilv ni the group. The league made the rules which govern all women students and i: enforced these rules hv trving the ' iolators and penalizing them. The league ' s actuities were not confined to mak ing rules, however, hut it planned a program aimed at campus impro ' ement. This vear tor the first time the league pro ' ided a community Christmas tree. A series of lectures on Vocational Guidance were gi en in the spring, the purpose of which was tt) acquaint students with opportunities open to them in ' arious fields Four women, outstanding in their respective vo- cations, were asked to speak on Nursing, Secre- tarial work, Social Service work, and Home Eco- nomics The league also sponsored a very success- ful campus " clean-up " campaign. The memhers equipped with sticks and wastehaskets paraded in formation o er the campus and picked up all waste paper. Women ' s League v ' as not idle during the emer- gency.

Second row: Kramer, Preinkert, Joslyn, Johnson, Wysor, Pollock, Faber, Reid. U.NDER THE LEADERSHIP of Dr. CliatleS White, chc Student Life Committee serves as an advisory body for student affairs and acts as a coordinator between the administration and stu- dents. The committee keeps its collective finger on the student pulse by holding periodic meetings with student leaders to determine matters of policy and to further harmony within the university. Though the group deliberates as a unit, it gen- erally carries out its policies through various sub- committees dealing with nearly every phase of student activity. For instance, the Organizations Committee, headed by Dr. Charles G. Eichlin, considers new fraternities, sororities, and other clubs which petition for chapters on the campus. Another very important branch of the Student Life Committee is the subcommittee on Health and Sanitation headed by Dr. William A. Griffith. Dr. Griffith and cohorts are charged with the regulation of all student eating places in the vicin- ity, such as the dining hall and off-campus houses. This group is also responsible for conducting pe- riodic examinations of all food handlers. Dean Adele Stamp ' s Social Activities Com- mittee, center of some acrid debates in the past, has formed a list of rules which now govern all campus dances and other social activities. This subcommittee has had the unenviable job of trying to formulate a set of rules governing social events which will please everybody. Other committees include Publications, headed by the man of many jobs, Captain Ralph I. Williams; Miss Alma Preinkcrt ' s Registration Committee; Student Government; Men ' s Dormi- tories; and Daydodgers. Other members include: Col. Robert E. Wysor, Jr.; Dr. John E. Faber; Dr. Susan E. Harman; Mr. George F. Pollock; Miss Katherine Terhune; Miss Mary Johnson; Prof. Russell B. Allen; Dr. Norman E. Phillips; Dr. L. H. James; Dr. Otis E. Lancaster; Prot. Charles F. Kramer, Jr.; Dean James H. Reid. 32 ' l l n ' OW ajler row of test tubes and shining apparatus sym- bolized the progress of mans research for a better, finer world. As the students learned the power of science, they began to dream and plan to harness the mighty atom for the greater good of their fellowmen. Thus do they serve humanity, and through them the university exerts a powerful influence for good upon the state and nation. They are the builders of the future. In these pages we show you, first, the classes, symbohzing the intellectual growth and maturity of the students, and the honorary so- cieties, symbolizing achievement in nearly every phase of university life. You may see the influ- ence of the university on the student ' s life during his undergraduate years, and, conversely, the mark he makes on the university through his activities on the campus. Fresh from being high school seniors, the fresh- men thought they knew about all there was to know, but they soon discovered, as all of us must, that knowledge consists largely of learning how much one does not know. Life was hard those first few weeks, until they found that the grim, weather-beaten brick buildings had a stark beauty of their own, that the barren classrooms could broaden into hitherto unexplored vistas at the will of the professors, that the endless rows of test tubes in the laboratories symbolized the eternal progress of man ' s groping search for knowledge and truth. Thus it was that those who truly sought the betterment of themselves came to love the university. Those who survived the first year had fought and won the hardest battle. Their personalities began to make themselves felt as they asserted themselves in their classrooms, fraternities, and clubs; in publications, dramatics, and a host of other fields. They learned to recognize and to participate in all the manifold phases of university life. They had oriented themselves and were be- ginning to grow up, intellectually and emotion- ally. As juniors, they began to prepare for definite professions, to learn to be tomorrow ' s citizens: engineers, chemists, businessmen, teachers, house- wives, soldiers, and statesmen. They were learn- As juniors they began to prepare for the professions that beckoned to them. They learned from their books, but more often they learned by working on practical problems, by doing the things that industry would later require of them. ing to assume positions of trust and responsibility in the American way of life. They learned that one must sacrifice greatly to keep the things that man holds most dear: human liberties and the right to live and to work in peace. They learned to work hard and to play hard. They learned a fair evaluation of their fellow men and women, and had the deep satisfaction of knowing that those whom they trusted would not betray that trust. Often they were mistaken, but they profited by their mistakes. Those who could not, fell by the wayside. They learned from their books, but more often they learned by doing, by taking their places in the miniature world that makes up a col- lege. They learned obedience to those who were placed in positions of trust, provided that those who occupied those positions were worthy of them. Some of them learned tolerance; others found it the most difficult thing of all to absorb. Those who had shown they had exceptional abilities were elected to the honorary societies as juniors and seniors, because they had been tried and found to stand up well in the ratified air of leadership. More and more these students made their personaUties felt on the student body; their ideas were taken into consideration before major changes were made. They were called upon to represent the university, and her reputation often stood or fell by the way in which they took their parts in activities throughout the state. As mem- bers of honoraries, they came under the watchful eyes of business and professional people who were looking for outstanding students, and were men- tally winnowing the wheat from the chaff. As seniors, members of honoraries or not, they found themselves in positions of leadership on the campus, men and women whom the underclass- men looked to for guidance. Those who had kept peace, when peace smashed into a thousand frag- ments, and they were plunged into the chaos of the greatest war the world had ever seen. Their little college world came thundering down around their ears, and they had to learn the greatest, cruel- est lesson that can come to any man or woman. They were forced to accept the greatest paradox of all time : that, in order to live at peace as we, a free people, wish to live, we must fight, and, if need be, die for those principles on which American liberty is founded. They did not falter in the face The students began to take their places in the honorary societies, as they gained recognition for outstanding work and climbed a little higher toward the culmination of their college careers. their eyes open, those who had come to the uni- versity with an open mind and an open heart, those who had given their best and learned to take the bitter with the sweet, were rewarded accord- ing to their capabilities. A few had straggled through at the tail of the column, but most of them were ready to face the future unafraid. They were finished, until fate stepped in and gave them one more lesson to learn. They had almost readied themselves for the pursuits of of this disaster, but responded courageously, did what they were called upon to do, and laid aside their personal hopes and ambitions for the good of the nation. They knew that they would have to suffer greatly, and make endless sacrifices, but they faced the future resolutely. The influence of the university had served the nation well.

Seniors ITouR YEARS Ac}c), iiico chc shaJcHvy background of the grcac portrait that is the Uni- versity of Maryland, there entered a bewildered mob, the Class ot 1942. Harry Spicer headed the group, and, though it lost the annual Tug-of-War, he was instrumental in setting torch the glory of the class at the Freshman Hop. The following fall the class moved from the background of the scene to hold chc awe-inspiring title — Sophomores! Re enge is sweet — and was achieved by deteating the Freshmen in their sec- ond Tug-of-War. Dancing to Dick Messner ' s music and a Promenade led by President Bill Hol- brook highlighted the year. Juniors — and the class moved into the lighter part, almost the foreground of the picture. Bill Holbrook, agam at the helm, led the class in a never-to-be-forgotten Promenade to the " Swing and Sway " rhythms o( Sammy Kaye. Soon after, the lull light ol the uni ersity tell upon them — they were Seniors. President lerr ' Prentice guided them chrough the brightest pare ot chc painting. Now, with many memories behind them, they go on, into the shadowy background of an e en larger portrait — the w orld today. 37 THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES nr Ihe College of Arts and Sciences provides four years of training in the liberal arts and sciences. The curricula are designed to give the students a broad cultural foundation for any pro- fessional or vocational career. In the third and fourth year each student completes a closely unified group of courses leading toward vocational, professional, or cultural goals. The College of Arts and Sciences lays the foundation for further study in the professional schools or other universities. Dorothy Anne Aiello Hyattsville B.S.

SENIORS 58 THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING vlthough the primary purpose of che College of Engineering is to train young men to practice the profession of Engineering, it endeavors at the same time to equip them for their duties as citizens and for careers in public service and industry. Greater emphasis is placed on the funda- mentals of engineering, a knowledge of the sciences dealing with human relations, and tamiliarity with business organization and operation. The College of Engineering includes the Departments of Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering, hi addition, the college conducts special courses in defense work tor non-college men, and maintains a program of research. The work of the college has been stepped up tremendously to meet the increased demand for trained engineers, and will continue to be accelerated as the country ' s needs increase. Robert D.

The latter is most important in this present emergency because home economics trained women are vital m our defense industries. Teaching, Demonstration Work, National Advertising, Research, Designing, and Merchandising are some of the many fields open to Home Economics students. All students follow practically the same program until their junior year. Then they elect a major from General Home Economics, Home Economics Education, Textiles and Clothing, Practical Art, Extension, Institution Management, or Foods and Nutritiiin.

THE SCHOOL OF NURSING The University is happy to welcome the School of 7s[ur5ing to the pages of the Terrapin. J_LlSTABLISHED ON A NON-SECTARIAN BASIS in 1889 the University of Maryland School for Nurses has grown to be one of the leading train- ing institutions ot its type in the country. The school has the unlimited use of the University Hospital which is equipped to give young women a thorough course of instruction and practice in the art of caring for the sick. Opportunities to learn all branches of medicine from dermatology and surgery through emergency work in the acci- dent wards are given to the students. Practical instruction in psychiatric nursing is provided through an affiliation with the Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital, and an introduction to public health nursing is provided by the Western Health District of the City Health Department. 66 THE 1942 Ivy Albaugh Hampstead Grace E.

Instruments and their uses were memorized. Complete references on all medical problems are available to the student nurses in the Medical Library. The regular nursing curriculum is completed in three years, but, for those who desire college experience along with their nurse ' s training a more complete training, a rtve-year course, is oflercd. Students who graduate from this course receive a Bachelor of Science degree and a Di- ploma in Nursing. In this curriculum the first two years are spent in the College of Arts and Sciences at the College Park branch of the uni- 68 Time for dinner. crsicy. During this time the student receives training in the fundamental college courses which are considered aluable to all college graduates, and is required to maintain residence at College Park. The last three years of this course are spent in the Baltimore school. During their stay at the Baltimore institution, the nurses are housed in a comfortable residence which is conveniently lo- cated near the hospital. Unlike the student body at College Park, the nurses are allowed only eight weeks ot vacation during the entire three years ot their training course. This year ' s graduating class of the School of Nursing is distinctive in that it has a larger num- ber of women who hax ' c had college work prior to their entrance into trainmg than has any other class in the history of the hospital. A large nunnber of drugs must be used and remembered by the student nurses. 69 Clinical work teaches valuable lessons. Visiting nurses start a busy day.

JUNIOR CLASS i_ isTiNCTivE from the nmc they entered the unixersicy, the Junior Class kept up this tra- dition by entering a winning float in the Home- coming Parade this year, and by giving one of the most successful Junior Proms in the memory ot the student body. Excellent music was furnished by Woody Herman and the promenade was led b) ' Class President Oliver Guyther and Prom Chair- man Jack Miller. As freshmen they started their career ot dis- tincti ' eness by defying traditional " rat rules. " This flaunting of authority proved to be rather dis- astrous, illustrated by the shorn head of their leader, Al Ruppersbcrger. A year later, the class, under President Olixer Guyther, a ' enged them- selves by enforcing a strict new set of " rat rules " upon their understudies. Although they lost the tug-of-war, the first year men were duly impressed with the superiority ot the Class ot 1943. 71 The Prom was a rainbow shining through clouds of exams.

SOPHOMORE CLASS V OMPLETE DOMINATION OVCf cllC HCW freshmen was the aim ot the sophomores at the beginning of the year. A new set ot " rat rules, " known as the " Eight Commandments, " pkis the defeat of the underhngs in the annual tug-ot-war, emphatically impressed the treshmen with the superiority of the Class of 1944. During the winter the sophomores devoted themselves to the serious business of keeping up a scholastic average, hut still found time to lay the foundation for one ol: the most successful sopho- more proms in the history of the school. hi keeping with the current defense effort, a novel idea was introduced when the class set up a booth in the lobby of the Gym-Armory for the sale of Defense Stamps during the dance. Music, supplied by Charlie Strong and his orchestra, and Dance Chairman Henry Madden ' s novel decora- tions were large factors in the success of the affair. The Prom was a gala night in College Park 73 CLASS OFFICERS Richard Lodge, president: Jane Boswell.secrefary; James James, treasurer. Robert Wiley, v ce- president. FRESHMAN CLASS In mid-September some 1,250 indi- viduals passed through the portals of the uni- versity and became members of the Freshman Class. During the first week their time was taken up chiefly by the bewildering problem of registra- tion and orientation. By October the group had settled down sutBciently to elect Fred Skoniecke to serve as temporary chairman. Regular class They fought for the glory of ' 45. elections were held later, at which time Dick Lodge was elected president, assisted by Bob Wiley, vice-president; Jane Boswell, secretary; and Jimmy James, treasurer. Under their leader- ship the class received a thorough dousing at the hands of the sophomores in the tug-of-war on Homecoming Day and entered their first float in the Homecoming Parade. Their year was high- lighted by the Freshman Prom, under the able leadership of Prom Chairman Roderick Watson, with music furnished by Michael Greene. Their prayers for rain were answered. 74 HONORARY FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES 75 First row: Bell, Boswell, Cordyack, Guyther, Holbrook, McCloskey.

OMICRON DELTA KAPPA SIGMA CIRCLE Honorary Leadership Fraternity Founded at Washington and Lee University m igi Established at the University of Maryland in ig2y IL wm T vJmicron Delta Kappa, founded at Washington and Lee University in 1914, came into being because of a desire to recognize leader- ship in all fields of college work. Now embracing nearly fifty student chapters throughout the United States, Omicron Delta Kappa has come to play a most important role in our national life. The nation needs leaders now as never before, inen who have been trained to think and to make decisions quickly, to know what to do and when to do it. It is to this purpose that Omicron Delta Kappa is dedicated. The society not only recognizes these qualities of leadership in college men but it also devotes its activities to promoting them wherever possible. Sigma Circle of the society was established at the University of Maryland in 1927. Since then 76 it has come to plav a leading role in campus aT lairs. During the tirsc tew weeks ol the past year, the memhcrs were busy preparing tor the CaK ' crt Cotillion, one oi the year ' s outstanding formal dances, which was given lor the lirst time m co- operation with Mortar Board, women ' s leader- ship society. It has been customary each year for the Circle to honor one national or international hgure v ho has been ot exceptional service to his country. This vcar the society conferred honorary membership on Lord Halita.x, British Ambassacior to the United States, for his outstanding work in the field of higher education and for his ctTorts in pro- moting Anglo-American solidarity. Omicron Delta Kappa also made Colonel Robert E. Wysor an honorary faculty member in recognition of his accomplishments with the university military department. Ten undergraduates, representing leadership in all the phases ot university life were tapped at the ceremony. Among worthwhile projects started by the fra- ternity during the year were plans tor a student union building, to be constructed as soon as pos- sible after the close of the present conflict. Officers were: Orville Shirey, president; John Cordyack, vice-president; Paul McCloskey, sec- retary-treasurer.

MORTAR BOARD Scnio7 ' Women ' s Honorary Society Founded at Swarthmore College m igi8 Established at the University of Maryland in ig 4 Ihe highest honor that can be hc- stowed upon University of Maryland women is initiation into Mortar Board, which makes lead- ership, scholarship, and service the three qualifica- tions for membership. One of the smallest hon- orary organizations on the campus, it is also one of the most active. This year the coeds established a Mortar Board Scholarship Fund to help women with high schol- astic ability through college. On Alumni Day they had a table of information, and met with Mortar Board members of previous years. In the spring they sponsored several lectures : one on par- liamentary procedure for all new officers, and another on the international situation. Other projects during the year included a " Smarty Party, " given for all sophomore women with a 2.7 average, selling chrysanthemums on Homecoming Day, purchasing a cap and gown for the Mortar Board ritual, having a sterling sil- ver display, meeting for lunch and a movie with the George Washington Chapter, and presenting the program for the Senior Women ' s Breakfast during June Week. On Awards Day, Mortar Board presented its Scholarship Award to the senior woman with the highest four-year scholastic average. The officers for this year were : President, Doris McFarland; Vice-President, Kay Barker; Secre- tary, Elizabeth Funk; Treasurer, Carolyn Lacey; Historian, Ruth Lee Thompson. Members: Katherine Barker, Ruth Dashiell, Elizabeth Funk, Carolyn Lacey, Doris McFarland, Mary Powell, Ruth Lee Thompson, Charlotte White. Faculty; Roberta Mack, Adeie Stamp, Kathryn Terhune. 78 TAU BETA PI I MARYLAND BETA CHAPTER Hnnurary Engineering Fraternity Founded at Lehigh University in 188 Established at tlie University of Maryland in igig Lav Beta Pi, number one honorary society tor engineering students, first came to the Maryland campus in 1929, when Phi Mu, local engineering honorary, was inducted into the so- ciety through the effort s of Dr. S. S. Steinberg. The Bent of Tau Beta Pi is worn by those stu- dents who ranked in the highest eighth of their class during their senior year. Previously a senior had to finish in the upper fourth of his class, but this standard was raised last year. Fourteen under- graduates and twelve faculty members comprised the membership of the Maryland Beta Chapter. In addition to the scholastic requirement, pros- pective members must represent the highest stand- ards of integrity, adaptability, and leadership. Tappings for Tau Beta Pi were held in the fall and in the spring, and the initiation banquets were held in conjunction with the lohns Hopkins Uni- versity Chapter. Prominent engineers and na- tional officers of the fraternity were guest speakers at these functions.

Twice a month during the first semester the group held informal bowling parties, and their winter social activities were highlighted by a steak fry held at Sligo Cabin. In the spring the members enjoyed themselves at the annual Sigma Alpha Omicron banquet. At this same time, the •Jcivs Letter, their annual publication, startled the campus with its wit and humor strangely rem- iniscent of the Old Line. Several of the meetings were highlighted by talks given by men prominent in the field of bacteri- ology. The last event of the year was the bacteri- ology Open House; at which tiine the various activities and accomplishments of the club were displayed to the public.

ALPHA ZETA Honorary Agricultural Fraternity Founded at Ohio State University in i8gy Established at the University of Maryland in igzo vLPHA Zeta is Maryland ' s only hon- orary agricultural fraternity. To be initiated into this organization one must have a scholastic aver- age within the upper two-fifths of the class, must meet the scholarship, leadership, and character level set by members of the organization, and must be enrolled in the College of Agriculture. Students are not considered for membership until the second semester of their sophomore year. In November the group gave an informal smoker for those students eligible for member- ship. Dr. F. H. Leinbach, head of the animal husbandry department, gave a short talk to the guests on the aims and ideals of Alpha Zeta. Those chosen for membership were tapped in Dr. Cotterman ' s Freshman lecture class in Decem- ber. This class is required of all freshmen who plan to major in agriculture in order to acquaint them with all phases of the field. After the cere- mony had been completed, Chancellor Sam Reid explained the purpose of Alpha Zeta to the fresh- men, and urged them to strive for membership. For five days the new members underwent an informal initiation period, during which time they had to come to school in overalls and straw hats. They also were compelled to inake a large reproduction of the club ' s key and wear it to com- plete the costuiTie. ForiTial initiation ceremonies were held in April, followed by a banquet and dance. Other officers were: Jacob C. Siegrist, censor; John D. Cooley, scribe; M. Frank Ellmore, trea- surer; and William W. Boyer, chronicler. Dr. Mark Woods, Dr. De Voe Meade, and Dr. K. L. Turk of the faculty served as advisers during the year. Members. Ncvin S Baker, Robert H. Benson, Frank L Bencz, Jr , William W. Boyer, John D, Cooley, Jr., J. Stuart: Cooley, M.

Membership was selected in the spring from the highest five per cent in the junior class and in the fall from the highest fifteen per cent in the senior class. To be eligible for membership, a student must have maintained a B average throughout three years. Meetings were held once a month during the year, the most important one having been in No- vember, when the girls gave a tea for Miss Eloise Davison, the Assistant Director for Civilian De- fense. Many outstanding women in the field of home economics were guests at the tea. Omicron Nu started soniething new on the campus this year when the members sold chances on a $25 Defense Bond. This was done with the hope of making students Defense Bond conscious. Drawing for the winning number was done in the spring. Following a tradition of long standing, the society closed the year by presenting an award to the freshman girl with the highest scholastic average. Elizabeth Funk was president of the society; Mrs. Frieda McFarland, vice-president; Doris McFarland, secretary; Ruth Lee Thompson, treasurer; and Dean Marie Mount, editor. Mrs. Mark Welsh served again this year as faculty ad- viser for Omicron Nu. Members.

PHI KAPPA PHI kJTANDARDs FOUNDED Oil cxccUcnc Schol- arship necessarily 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 May seniors who stood in the upper eighth of the graduating class were made members. Rewarding fine scholarship and aiding in the development of character were the basic ideals of the fraternity. To promote those aims and to pro- vide incentive for further achievement in grad- uate work, several fellowships were offered each year to selected Phi Kappa Phis. In this manner the traditions of the fraternity were perpetuated. Among the benefits of membership were the associations with alumni who had continued con- tacts with the University and contributed en- couragement and interest to the achie ' cmcnts of the active college group.

ALPHA CHI SIGMA ALPHA RHO CHAPTER Professional Chemical Fraternity Founded at the University of Wisconsin in igoz Established at die University of Maryland in igz8 Ihe primary requisite for membership in Alpha Chi Sigma is the dedication of one ' s hfc to the profession of chemistry or chemical engi- neering. In addition, a prospective member must have completed the first half of his sophomore year and maintained an average of at least 2.5. At the start of every year Alpha Chi Sigma sponsors the formation of the Freshman Chemistry Club. The first few meetings of this new group are subsidized by Alpha Chi Sigma, which plans the meetings and secures prominent chemists as speakers. Every two years, with the Chemistry and Chemi- cal Engineering Departments, Alpha Chi Sigma presents a gala Chemistry Show which includes lectures, exhibits, demonstrations, and movies de- signed to display the work of the two depart- ments. The fraternity held three smokers during the year, and several banquets and dances com- pleted the social calendar. The business of the club was carried on in the regular meetings. Ted Vial was president of Alpha Chi Sigma, assisted by Edward Walton, vice-president; Robert Henry, secretary; and Frank Carpenter, treasurer.

IVIembership in Alpha Lambda Delta is the goal ot all freshmen women. It is attained by making an average of 3.5 or better during the freshman year. Those admitted to membership are active only until the end of their sophomore year, after which they are classified as " Collegiate Alumnae. " Under the guidance of President Ruth Black- well, the club carried on its policy of acting as a service, rather than a social, organization. It car- ried out the policy by volunteering help during freshman orientation week and regi stration, and by urging the freshmen women to high scholastic achievements. Other officers for the year included First row: Adkins, Allen, Anderson, Andreae, Barker, Blackwell, Mendum, Orr. Third row: Parlett, Blanche Morgan, vice-president; Mary Jane Chase, secretary; Elizabeth Anderson, treasurer; and Evelyn Mendum, historian. A friendly rivalry to see who gets the most pledges is carried on every year with the men ' s freshman honorary, Phi Eta Sigma. The rivalry supposedly settles the age-old question of " who has the brains, man or woman? " At the end of every year a book is awarded to the senior Alpha Lambda Delta member who has maintained the highest average during her four years of college.

PHI ETA SIGMA National Mai ' s Fi-cshman Honor Society Founded at University of Illinois in 1923 Chartered at the University of Maryland in ig4o V_ HARTERED IN 1940, tlic Maryland chapter of Phi Eta Sigma continued to recognize and award high scholarship and character among the freshmen men. Requisites for membership were a 3. 5 average and an honest face. Led by President John Spielman, Vice-Presi dent Clifton Currin, Secretary ' Treasurer Theodore Barss, the members drafted and adopted a constitution and by-laws in an effort to get a solid foundation on which to work. The representative to the na- tional convention of the fraternity at Southern Methodist University had some very constructive points that helped the club off to a good start. Incoming freshmen were presented with the pamphlet, " Hints on How to Study, " by mem- bers working in the registration line, and were admonished to follow the principles laid down therein to increase the membership of the fra- ternity.

BETA GAMMA SIGMA Hnnorai-y Commerce Fraternity Founded at the University of California in igi Chartered at the University of Maryland in ig n JDeta Gamma Sigma, national hon- orary business fraternity, was founded in 1913 through the consoHdation of three local honorary groups at the University of California, University of Illinois, and the University of Wisconsin. The local chapter received its charter in 1941 . Membership is confined to not more than ten per cent of the senior class in the College of Com- merce, having an average ot 3.0 or above and to not more than two per cent of highest ranking members of the junior class. Election to member- ship is usually held in the spring semester. The purpose ot the fraternity is to encourage and reward scholarship and to progress along lines of business activity among students and graduates of colleges in Commerce or business administra- tion and to promote the advancement and spread of education in the science of business. The officers for the past year were Albert Carry, president; H. Henry Spicer, vice-president; Al- pheus Marshall, secretary; and S. M. Wedebcrg, treasurer. Members; Harry A, Boswell, Albert J.

Toward the end of the year Pi Delt ' s collective conscience got the better of it and the society de- cided to sponsor a series of awards to senior mem- bers of publications staffs who had done meri- torious work. These awards were made in the form of medals presented at the publications banquet. Pi Delta Epsilon ' s other activity was the pres- entation of a number of somewhat libelous, al- beit hilarious skits on the private li ' es of various iTiembers of the faculty who had merited Pi Delt ' s attentions during the year. These were also pre- sented at the Publications Banquet, much to the discomfort of the persons concerned. Officers during the past year were: Douglass Wallop, president; Neal Hathaway, vice-presi- dent; and Mary Ann Griffith, secretary-treasurer.

Since that time the organization has grown to he the Supreme Court ot all managerial problems and disputes. In addition to arranging entertainment for visit- ing teams, the society has been empowered by the Student Government Association to act as an arbiter in all disputes between managers, to ap- point men to replace those managers who may drop out of school, and to supervise all managerial elections. The ballots for such elections can be opened and counted only in the official meetings of the Latch Key Society. Under the leadership of President Robert Dorn, the group has reorganized and written a new con- stitution, and has considerably strengthened the standing and powers of the group. Latch Key made all arrangements for the annual Southern Conference Cross Country Meet which was held here in the late fall. During the spring the S.G.A. accepted a petition to make Latch Key an honor- ary manager ' s society. At present the membership is made up of junior and senior managers and freshman managers of ten varsity and freshman sports. Other officers for the year were Loy Shipp, vice-president; and Carl Harris, secretary-treasurer. Members; Frank Bcntz, Robert Dorn, Robert Forrester, David Greenberg, Carl Harris, Leon Hoffman, Bernard Klawans, Thomas Lanahan, William Lane, Kenneth Maskell, William Maslin, Edward Robinson, Norman Rosenfield, Alan Sagner, Loy Shipp, Harold Smelser, William Stcdman, Eugene Sullivan, James Tessier, Morris Todd, Albert Vogel.

SIGMA TAU EPSILON MARYLAND CHAPTER Honorary Women ' s I ecreation Association Founded at the University of Maryland m i g o Vj ' OVERNING BODY OF ALL activities of the Women ' s Recreation Association is Sigma Tail Epsilon, honorary women ' s athletic fra- ternity. Although the group was organized only two years ago, it has already grown to be one of the best known organizations on the Maryland campus. Unlike most other honoraries, any woman student of the University who has niain- tained an average of 2.5 is eligible for member- ship, and prospective members are chosen from no particular class or curriculum. Aside from the scholastic requirements the prospective members must show the qualities of good sportsmanship, correct attitude, pleasing personality, and out- standing service in the field of wonien ' s sports. During February of the past year, Sigma Tau Epsilon sponsored a fashion show, followed by a dance which heralded the start of the Charm School, also sponsored by the club. Twice during the year the group published the News Letter, which was designed to familiarize the alumnae with the activities of the club. The organization was headed by President Helena Knauer, assisted by Ann Wolf, vice-presi- dent; and Dorothy Foerster, secretary-treasurer. Members: Gertrude Amoss, Edith Duntord, Dorothy Foerster, Helena Knauer, Marjorie Lovell, Margaret Meiser, Jane Showacre, Ann O. Wolf. 91 Lord Halifax delivered the main address at the ODK tapping.

Halifax surrounded by Maryland dignitaries. 92 COEDS shouldered their share of the responsibility. They learned to wor as well as play, for part of the university s duty was to teach them to he capable, to ta e their places in the new world that must be built when we have finished destroying the one we l ow. They prepared to carry on without hesitation and bring the lessons they had learned at the university wherever they might be needed. XHIS SECTION OF THE TeRRAPIN prCSCntS the most widely diversified collection of activities the university has to offer, yet it is not out of keep- ing with the theme to which the book has been dedicated. The university itself is made up of hundreds of seemingly unrelated activities, but there is a thread of logic, gossamer thin, yet strong as steel, which links them together to form a great organization, devoted to progress. Every activity has some purpose, some value, else there would be no excuse for its existence. We show you here the clubs, the social fraternities and sororities, and Miss Maryland and her court. It is only fitting that, in the pages devoted to Miss Maryland and her court, we pay tribute to those coeds, elected by the student body and judged by a connoisseur of beauty, who have been chosen as the best the university has to offer. It is pro- phetic that the university teaches them to be cap- able as well as beautiful, for in the years to come, the women of America will take a greater part in aiding us to ultimate victory and to a happier, better world than the one we know. Since they will be called upon to take their places in the essential activities of the nation as well as in keeping their homes intact, the coeds, like the men, must learn to do their tasks well in the universities and col- leges of the nation. organization, no matter how small they may be in relation to the total scheme of things, are never- the-less very real and pressing at the moment. They learn, too, to take good fortune as it comes and to accept whatever honors they may receive gracefully. We also include here every organization, great or small, banded together for whatever purpose it may serve, that the university has to offer. These groups supplement the regular curriculum in many ways, and a few branch off into subjects not cov- ered in the classrooms. They deal with political science, engineering, home economics, religion, athletics, and a hundred and one other things. Society was just as important a part of University life as the academic phase, for the students learned to play as well as work, preparing themselves to lead Vi M normal, well-balanced, and useful lives. We also include here the fraternities and sorori- ties, an integral part of the life of any great uni- versity. It is through these groups that students learn their advance lessons in the art of living, of tolerance, and of mutual help. The fraternities and sororities furnish companionship, and illus- trate the value of cooperation, both of which are vital parts of the American educational system and of the American way of life, that of the brotherhood of man. In these organizations, the men and women of the university can, if they will, develop their talents for leadership, should they be chosen to carry out the duties of some office through the year. They learn to meet adversity and to cope with it, for the troubles that beset any Here the students get a chance to bring what they have learned out into the light of open discussion, and to find out its worth, how it applies to their everyday lives, and how it will help, or even hinder them in many different ways. They have a chance to listen to other students ' views on many different topics, to hear lecturers from other parts of the world. In some groups, they learn to de- velop their physical prowess, to demonstrate or improve their skills in horseback riding, swim- ming, mountain climbing, or knitting. They have a chance to help others develop these skills which they already possess, to develop new abili- ties themselves. They may learn to express them- selves in open debate, or they may use their abili- ties to entertain those less talented on the stage or in some musical organization. All of these things, taken into consideration will help in some way to develop a cultured, capable, level-headed citizen. Social life plays an important part in rounding out a college career. Strange as it may seem, one of the most difficult tasks in life is to learn to play, to occupy one ' s leisure hours pleasantly, to learn moderation and the art of rubbing shoulders with all sorts and conditions of people. The university plays a large part in helping the students cultivate those tastes and abilities which he will need when he takes his place in the world. All of the activities that we have presented here contribute in some way to the fundamental pur- pose of the university, to train a man or woman who can unhesitatingly take his place in the world and add something to the progress of society They heard lecturers from different parta of tha world, and learned much from them. through learning, through invention, and through intelligent, gracious living. When we have settled the way of life that we shall have through gen- erations to come, through sword and flame, we must return to normal. The men and women who have trained themselves well are those who will lead us back to an ordered, balanced life. The University of Maryland is justly proud of the part it has played in producing such citizens. Fraternities and sororities stimulated good fellowship and enhanced the social side of campus life. 1941 TERRAPIN Received All American Rating JTor the second consecutive year, the Ter- rapin received " All- American " rating in the survey con- ducted hy the National Scholastic Press Association.

THE TERRAPIN inE Terrapin is unique aniong cam- pus puhlications. It is the product of genius, some- times mad, sometimes misguided, but nevertheless genius. The fact that the Terrapin is ever puhhshed at all is an indication of the fact that some super- natural power keeps a benevolent eye on the wan- derings of the staff. There is no rhyme or reason in what goes on in the Terrapin office. There are always people sitting around staring blankly at typewriters, and other people running from one end of the room to the other looking for some- thing. A Gallup poll failed to disclose what they were looking for. Jerry Prentice, the editor, sat at his desk yelling at somebody to do something which he eventually had to do himself. Business Manager Paul Mc- 98 Closkcy could be found hiding behind a door, waiting for the unwary to come in with some money.

Nobody wanted it. It was just there. Round t able on copy night. The first blow of the season was the loss of its incomparable Business Manager, " Boo " Bciswell. Interests afield had " Boo " mildly apoplectic. Then at the end of the first semester, Judson Bell had to resign as editor. Jud had a unique reason — the Army was after him. Paul Hutson became Business Manager and began the task of deciphering Boswell ' s no ' el fil- ing system, while Mar in Polikofi became the new editor. 100 Two new columns appeared during the year. " Through the Tortoise Shells " featured the in- credible wit of Gene Sullivan and a series of re- marks about the Old Line. Ted Stell gently but firmly placed the last straw on the back of the student body with " Off Campus and On, " through which he conducted a one-man publicity campaign tor the daydodgers. Women ' s Editor Alice James, Associate Editor Doris McFarland, and Sports Editor Alan Sagner spent their time trying to convince various strange characters, supposedly reporters, that they couldn ' t sit down and dream up a story about Professor Wottabottle ' s lecture. However, a visit to the publications convention in St. Louis convinced us of something that we had suspected for years — that the Diamondhack, in spite of all its eccentricities, was one of the best college newspapers in the country.

Kerwin Art Editor Douglass Wallop Editor Neal Hathaway Business Manager Quiet! staff at work. ' THE OLD LINE j t irregular intervals on Thursday mornings, before anyone was awake, a number of sheepish characters began putting Old Lines in post office boxes. Th en they departed quietly, lest someone should recognize them. Thus it was that the students were made aware of the finer things of life without any effort — or even desire — on their part. However, more goes into the Old Line than persuading the students to take it, though it might not seem so. More than once Business Manager Hathaway was seen skulking through the base- ment of the Administration Building making up his deficits by picking pockets. Art Editor Walt Kerwin spent many, many 102 hours carrying out some original research to find the perfect model. The results of this research have not been published as yet. Meanwhile, Doug Wallop sat in his office and brooded. Nobody ever knew what he brooded over, but all the coeds thought he looked awfully romantic just sitting there, or conversing in a strange jargon that has yet to find its way into the English (or any other) language. Joe White as exchange editor was the star con- tributor to most issues. Cecil Martin turned out a great deal of poetry, some ot which was excel- lent. Carolyn Lacey turned out a short story for each issue and, strangely enough, they were far above the caliber of those that generally pop up. And yet, the Old Line came out almost when it was supposed to, and a lot of people enjoyed it. Sometimes, the wit was a bit puzzling, but the editors need not hang their heads in shame. The Old Line, in its own way, was an excellent maga- zine. Members; Literary sta ft: Norman Hathaway, Cecil Mar- tin, Alice Kaiiler, Ann Paterson, Pauline Hardy, Frances Respess, Frances Whyte.

First row: Dolan, Lyon, Funk, Brophy, Carhart, White, Owen, Phillips, Maskell. Second row: Buck, Boulter, Beuerman, Otto, Lucas. known as the Freshman Bible and Carhart ' s Handy Handbook for Befuddled Freshmen. This handbook allegedly contained all the U. of M. songs and cheers, the S.G.A. constitution and Women ' s League rules, which nobody understood, names and numbers of all the campus moguls, and a list of all campus organizations that the frosh could join to while away their spare hours. Editor Bert Carhart, Business Manager Fred Kohloss, Jeanncttc Owen, Rosalie Lyon, Mary Claire Bonham, Harold Seidman, and Libby Funk got reams of data together, put a cover on it, and presented it to the freshmen. The staff worked all through the hotest days of the summer, which undoubtedly accounts for Carhart ' s Handy Handbook in the making! 104 FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES 105 INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL LEiB McDonald Vice-Presiden t 1 H E Interfraternity CouNCiL was the big brother to the brotherhoods of the Mary- land campus. Composed of twenty-eight men, good and true, the council lent a helping hand in keeping harmonious relationships between the fraternities themselves and between the university and the fraternal groups. Using a system of rotating meetings, the council met about once a month in the different houses and discussed current topics concerning the fra- VINCEN J. HUGHES Presiden t ternities, rush rules, and the progress of member- ship. The big events of the year started oft early with the council ' s sponsorship of an Interfraternity athletic program. A cup or plaque was offered to the winning club in each competition. Later in the year, two members of the council instead of one, as in previous years, journeyed to the sky- scraper city to attend the National Interfraternity Balls held on April 7. Elaborate plans had been f A(-) Lansdale Vreeland MX Inglis Pendleton ATQ Smelser Taylor KA Forbes Kavanaugh ZX Bach Murphy 106 made, the effect of which must have been highly gratifying to the planners. The " bretheren " ac- companied by their fair ladies turned out in full assemblage to " trip the light fantastic " to music that matched every mood. One feature that bears particular mention is the reappearance of that popular and invaluable Inter- fraternity Handbook published by the council. Where would the poor freshman pledgee be with- out one? The president of the council, who performed such splendid work, was Josh Hughes. The vice- president, Lcib McDonald, treasurer, Charles Harry, and secretary, Ed Nylen all rendered con- i;DWARD NYLEN CHARLES HARRY Secretary Treasurer SK AS ' t ' f i: Farnham Horn Garlitz Shirey Simonds Steinberg spicuous service to the council ' s inner circles. Membership in the group is limited to two niem- bers from each recognized fraternity at Maryland. These recognized fraternities have now reached a total of twelve, proving that Maryland Uni- versity fraternity life is on the increase. Not only does the Intcrfraternity Council assist the many fraternities and their individual mem- bers, but it has promoted scholarship m the uni- versity itself. A magnificent cup was awarded to the fraternity with the highest composite schol- astic average. The aid it gave to the fraternities and its charit- able endeavors throughout the community estab- li shed the council ' s place at the University of Maryland.

Inside, piano-man Jim Degges was heatin ' out the blues. The daily bridge game was going strong, Bob Russell, " Mom " Reed, Joe Eisen- berger and Harry Ovitt. Harry Boswell, Tom Lanahan, Loy Shippe, and Gene Sullivan, king of campus corn, were ably directing proceedings. In one corner, " Doc " Quinn was on a soap box selling used shirts, socks, and blue books to Fred Hicks and Fletch Jones. Prexy Roy Garlitz was in the phone booth making an important call. Tommy Bourne and John Rabai were just ex- changing their sections of the funnies when the bell rang for lunch. Trampling over a horde of pledges, who were cringing under the whip of " Massa " Harry Spicer, we found a plate. Amid disgusted cries of " What ! turkey again?

Dance director was social chairman Bill Miles, and over- seeing all, president Gist Welling. Deacon Ad- kins was always there with his ever-constant shadow, Lotte. Shirking their livestock judging were Bill Boyer, Roland King, and John Bennett, the Pennsylvania Dutchman. As the dairy closes at nine o ' clock, Brothers Day and Marty Todd would be there, and that yellow car out front be- longed to " Curly " Thompson. During the intermission their famous punch was made by Ray Gross, who was invariably supervised by Chick Jubb, headwaiter at the din- ing hall, and the other two tray-toters, Steve Kahoe and " Doc " Jarrell. Joe Jones, late as usual, arrived after making special deliveries for the post ofhce. The music might have been supplied by their own orchestra, with Smith and St. Clair on the trumpets, trombone by Warren Smith, " Gump " Ward on the fiddle. Bill Wheeler with the guitar, and " Hot Lips " Baker playing clarinet. The best dressed boy would be politician Bob Benson. Cafe- teria cashier Tom Galbreath, and Dick Jenkins of the A.G.R. taxi service wolfed the brothers. Three letter men, " Mac " MacDonald, Roscoe Whipp of baseball fame, and the A.G.R. coach, Dan Talmadge, would be there. Treasurer Chester Ernst counted his money in the corner. Phil Seltzer jitterbugged with his Iriend Mary, while " Doc " Northam checked up on all details. And so we see the dances, like the club, ex- pressed the best of A.G.R.

Ed Nylen, president, could be seen riding merrily around the campus on those rare days when he wasn ' t enjoying the " Sport of Kings. " Herman Kaiser usually accompanied Ed to the track, but, of course, Herman had to stop at the Postollice for that letter from Harris- burg. John Beveridge and Frank Seward traversed the road from College Park to Bethesda every day, while Don Damuth laid down a smoke screen with his pipe as he daydodged from Baltimore. " Mogul " Bob Fulton was a stellar hurler for the Terp nine, and spent all his allowance paying fines for broken windows in the house. " Ram- rod " Ramirez kept the boys amused wit h his con- tortions of the King ' s English and stories of Puerto Rico. Bob Muma longed for the beauties of Cum- berland, not to mention any number of other things. " Baron " Klug struggled through a fifth- year English course, as who hasn ' t. Jack Davis ran the house canteen disconsolately but gallantly . . . Johnny Smoot ruled the Trail Club and hung around the bowling alleys brushing up on his footwork.

" Reverend " Bob White spent his tune taking his Model " A " apart and not quite getting it back together, while Keith Montgomery, pretty hoy of the club, sped around in his red Plymouth. Al Merendino just kept quiet about everything and went home every week-end . . . " Duke " Kazlauskas served sodas in the corner drugstore and worked on publications every now and then, while Al Crowell set new records for speed in losing his pin . . . John Tack- ett, treasurer of the house, tried to eat up all the profits and very nearly succeeded. Barney Balch was a runner for N.B.C. and a coming young mogul on the hill . . . Tommy Jeffreys wasn ' t seen much, as he hid behind a book all year, and " Baby " Brooks wrote poems to Dottie and washed his Buick. And so, even though they were far trom the campus itself, the Lambda Chis were an integral part of the campus life, participating in many diversified activities, working and playing, and trying to keep Lambda Chi up with the leaders among the Greek clubs.

Work, play, and good fellowship left their marks on all of those under this roof. Shakespeare was the abiding passion of Presi- dent Bob Wiggins, although at the recent national convention in Chattanooga, he was initiated into the Cardinal Club, an exclusive drinking fraternity within a fraternity. ' Tis said that local charmers have no effect on Bob whatsoever . . . Dick An- drews, A.L.T. social secretary, also took the Chat- tanooga Choo-Choo to the convention. The girl he left behind him in Kresgeville, Pennsylvania, wears his pin. Dick was a quiet fellow, especially on those little excursions to the Grill with Bud Shier. Bud, aptly called the " Yankee salesman, " is from Connecticut, and has a mortal, but not unique, dread of 8:2o ' s — understandable since he is a Commerce major. Adrian VanHuizen was vice-president and an English major, often seen in conference with faculty member George Fogg . . . Max Kerschensteiner, chapter treasurer, was a Shylock. Homesickness for Baltimore was his principal emotion when he was not laboring over some tough engineering problem. Warren Simonds, housemanager and sole owner and operator of the A.L.T. bus, worked in Berwyn on a full-time job to fill in spare hours. The Army tried to convert this Political Science major at Fort Belvoir . . . James Jordan, the original demon dance planner, was always ready to take in a movie. He could generally be heard echoing, " 1 dood it, " at any hour and took up weight-lifting to help him pass the Air Corps physical. Dwight Fearnow, the self-styled Nelson Eddy, sang the lead in the Glee Club operetta — took the usual kidding about his engagement good naturedly. Warren Oster, an engineer day hop from Wash- ington, striving desperately to conserve his tires, planned to take up roller-skating. Bob Yeatman is a home-grown product of nearby Hyattsville. His main interest in life was in keeping his high average. Yes, this was a year which the Tau chapter of Alpha Lambda Tau will never forget, even if the good brothers live to be a thousand. 128 4 " Members : Richard Andrews, John Crone, Dwight Fear- now, James Jordan, Max Kerschensteiner, Warren Oster, Bernard Schier, Warren Simonds, Robert Scalcup, Adrian VanHuizen, Robert Wiggins, Robert Ycatman.

The unique " informal dances " in the Pi Kap bandbox ballroom became notorious, as wild rumors about said revels covered the campus. Brad Anderson, house manager, mamtained a fairly constant equilibrium between trips with the soccer and basketball teams and studying ROTC with publications man Fred Kohloss.

Les Bailey performed the duties of steward and vice-president with an unsuspected Yankee shrewdness, while Joe Decker managed to stay in school despite his engineering course and participation in many activities. Wally Fanning was seldom, if ever, away from a small hut potent A.D.Pi, Bobby Herr was enrolled in the state guard, and Doug Hope and Billy Dayton were on the gyni squad, and spent their time adver- tising the Eastern Shore. Jim Kearney handled Pi Kappa records and mis- spelled the minutes. Bob Mahon and Eddie Tay- lor were Commerce students after a fashion, while Phil Mattingly occasionally startled everyone by speaking more than three words. The Old Liyie art staff and dancing held Eddie Noland ' s inter- ests, while pledgemaster duties occupied George Proudlcy. Johnny Williams was in Alpha Zeta, president of the Methodist Club, and Pi K. treas- urer. Byrd Lucas was treasurer ot the B.S.U. and chaplain of Pi Kappa. Milt Cole was always around, although his presidency of the Glee Club kept him busy much of the time. " Demolition squad " Bill Pruitt dieted down to a hundred and ninety pounds. Bob Willis was one of Pi Kap ' s many Pershing Riflemen. Johnny Walker had a strong affection for at least twenty women, and Jack Gaines, bargainer extraordinary, could always get house furnishings wholesale. Pi Kappa closed the year with justified pride in themselves and all looked forward to next year and greater expansion of their chapter.

Alan Sagner, prior of the group, received the highest average in the house, while holding down many important positions, including sports editor of the Diamondback, manager of varsity wrest- ling, and membership in Latch Key Honor So- ciety. Treasurer Stanley Mann held high hopes of entering Uncle Sam ' s Air Force in the near future. " Irv " Jacobs, scribe, was said to have received many inviting offers from Hollywood as a result of character roles he played in the Footlight Club presentations. Steward Merhlc Fox, quietest boy in the house, finally reached the peak of liveliness when he heard that connoisseur Martin Bagc- donow ' s professors wished the classroom held the same fascination for him that the house kitchen did. Triggerman of the house, " Mike " Wolfson, the man who kept pledges in line, expected to repeat " Custer ' s Last Stand. " Ted Sherbow was known as the shadow of the " Thin Man, " and Norman Zinberg ' s only exer- cise was pushing himself away from the card table and then pulling his chair back again. " Bucky " Polikoff took over editorship of the Diamondback in January, and expected to take command of the United States Naval Forces in the Far East. Stanley Berman, the little man from the South with a big cigar in his mouth, listened to Ted Leizman, the silver-tongued orator who always was ready with words of wisdom to suit any occasion. Len Seidman was the only man with an active interest in the " bunny " market, and Irving Lewis, the gentleman from Virginia, displayed styles direct from the pages of the latest Esquire for the S. A.M ' s. Bobby Bornstein was the chemical engineer of the house and seemed to be the only member who could find time for his studies and a very extensive social life centered around nearby sororities . . . Bill Binbaum con- sumed all the excess food, and worried all year about the effects that the current tood rationing would have on his consumption of calories and vitamins. The addition of a new wing to their home was, to the S. A.M ' s, the most important event of the year. 132 iri 6 Members: Martin Bagedonow, Stanley Herman, Wil- liam Birnbaum, Robert Bornstein, Merhle Fox, Irving Jacobs, Ted Leizman, Irving Lewis, Stanley Mann, Mar- vin PolikofF, Alan Sagner, Len Seidman, Ted Sherbow, Myron Woltsen, Norman Zinbcrg.

Pledge warden and rifle team manager Danny Goldman, lolled con- tentedly in his sartorial majesty, while house man- ager Don Rose and Dave Rolnick kept the car market flourishing. Walt Schwartz, scribe ot the mob, threatened the extinction of his local board unless he was re- moved from his i-A classification, while Saul Laniado photographed photogenic Danny Bra- love in a rustic setting. From Miami University came Izzy Elias, who was always shivering from the freezing weather up here. Gil Hyman main- tained his position as middleman, while Bunny Klawans, tennis manager and socialite, joined Tolbert Konigsberg to study mechanical engineer- ing courses. Juddy Klein ' s favorite occupation was sleeping, and his dreams were usually of Brooklyn. The afternoon paper delivery called Bob Mandleberg to work, while Koppel Jeffrey listened breathlessly to the race results on the radio.

President Irwin Jacobs held down the mythical lover ' s post quite adequately, while preparing for a career in medicine. Irwin Shumaker, vice-presi- dent, was termed " Indian " for his scouting ability. Sheldon Michaels, secretary, was the lone farmer of the house, and spent his time studying the ad- vantages of life in the country. Fred Shulman counted the shekels and received the unanimous Phi Alpha nomination for " Beau Brummel. " " Hairless " Marvin Sadur annoyed the brothers with his trombone playing when he wasn ' t study- ing accounting or keeping books for some campus merchant, and Willie Goldenzweig, better known around the campus as " Willie the Lion, " took his Army seriously in hopes of some day becoming a second Mac Arthur. This year, the highlight of events for Phi Alpha was the accomplishment of what had been a major aim with them for some time — the ac- quisition of a new fraternity house.

Treasurer Sam Fradin wrestled with engineering formulae as Walter Levine, known as " Slicktongue, " spieled off sev- eral flowery passages to Steward Alex Passen when Alex dashed in from the Phi Sigma Sigma House. Allan Macht was secretary and took notes from " Draftee " Schlenoff, one of the club ' s founders.

The first step in this direction was in initiating the pohcy of holding monthly meetings of the group at the va- rious sorority houses. After the business meetings there always followed an informal gathering, at which refreshments were served and common topics of mutual interest to the members were discussed. The Council inaugurated a new and more efficient method of rushing which was a great im- provement over the former system. The Council secured the services of Mrs. Mary Dute, a Delta Zcta from Miami University, to issue and file invitations and bids, and to help solve rushee ' s First tow: Auslund, Chambers, Meehan, Saum, Vaiden. Second row: Eisele, Mumma, Shelton, JuUien, Stratman. 138 problems. The new system showed great possi- bihties with a few minor alterations. During rushing the Council also served as a mediator and court in the event that violations of rushmg regulations occurred. Oftenders were sub- jected to specific penalities. The annual progressive dinner-dance was en- joyed by the fraternities as well as the sororities. Each sorority provided a different course of the dinner, which enabled all the sorority girls to become better acquainted with one another. KATHARINE PERKINS Secretary DORIS WOOD Treasurer Couples traveled back and forth between the houses to enjoy the music and dancing which followed the dinner. Offices of the Panhellenic Council rotate among the sororities according to their founding date on the campus. Each group was represented on the council by its president, rushing chairman, and junior representative, who are elected by each sorority. Other officers for the year were : Randa Benner, vice-president; Kitty Perkins, secretary; and Doris Wood, treasurer. Miss Adele H. Stamp, Dean of Women, gave several dinners for the Council during the year, and furthered a spirit of cooperation between the administration and the sorority groups and among the sororities themselves.

On her left was Mary Lou Brown, who certainly doesn ' t look stern enough to be a Women ' s League representative, trying to dig a little iivz out of the record rack. On the other side was the lovely lady from Texas, Mary Alice Clark, plague of the pledges, tapping to one of Elma Staley ' s records. It must have really been good, because Elma was " hep " on the latest; she was the Maryland editor of the College Bazaar College Board. Friend " Mickey " Hamilton, with her charm, won ' t have any trouble with her future students. Upstairs we found Libby Skill dressing in a hurry to study bac- teriology with Bob in the library. Next door " umpteen " people were holding forth in a session. Little big-shot Helen Stephens, as befitting the president ol the French Club, led the discussion. Other participants were the bouncing belle from Bethesda, " Millie " Whitlow, " Doc " Ray Jones, " oomph " chemist and future sawbones, and Willa Ott, the cine man team and junior representative to the W.R.A. That soft southern drawl came from four-point Berniece Chambers, who could teach you how to speak that way in Speech Clinic after three easy lessons.

We had to meet Janet Stubbee, their new addition from Minnesota, fast learning how to speak like a southerner along with some Spanish. Ruth Meehan was holding forth on how to rush that South American way, and at the same time was demonstrating the proper way to do the conga.

Betsy Mumma, prexy and belle from that metropolis, " Hagersville, " tried to outdo cheerleader and bill-sender Barbara England in a continual feud. Ruth Lee Thompson breezed in late from her day of Mortar Board and Terrapin work. The staircase echoed the laughter of stun- ning Charlotte Eisele and Burt on the lower level, and further up Elmire Pearson and Alice Stribling, hula girls, stopped their joking to listen to Celeste Karlstad ' s laughter at smoothie Ellen Miller, who tripped while racing to the phone. S.G.A. and Pi Delt secretary Mary Ann Griffith tried to out- sparkle Bette Catling ' s ring before a full-length mirror. Mary Powell, Women ' s League presi- dent, rushed to a meeting, hurried by Martha Shelton, Annapolis ' dream. Charlotte Wcikinger, on an infrequent visit, listened to pledge captain Nancy King read stories to Martha Rainalter, Kappa secretary. Next door. Kappa Keys, Doris Wood, Nancy Julia, and Peggy Bohanan, cheered on by Betty Jacoby, Martha (Fluffy) Sparhawk, and subtle Lucille fdanlon, harmonized on a new arrangement. Ann Paterson dashed off a fantasy for the Old Line, helped by attractive junior class secretary Mary Jane Dawson. Jessie Halstead asked Nick to wait while she told a new house- managing trouble to sympathetic Betty Lou Tydings. Marianne Hunter, out with Jimmy, left funmaking Ruthie VoUand occupying their room. Martha Jane Fox whipped in from one date to whiz out for another. Betty Chamberlin, con- genial with absolutely anyone, was preparing to cheer another boy ' s evening.

Not only was this a distinction but it meant the girls could get an extra half-hour ' s sleep and still get to class on time. Inside the house, Commerce major and club treasurer, Marjorie Reside, could be found mum- bling to herself and pacing the floor with a wor- ried frown as she visualized herself behind the bars, with a number instead of a name, after the house books were audited. The strains of ' Tina- fore " indicated that cheerful Caroline McGill, vice-president and social chairman, was rehearsing a few of her favorite melodies. Loud discussion, upon investigation, revealed that Home Ec stu- dents Myrtle Killingsworth, Dottie Rundles, and Betty Lou Fike were very much engrossed in the complicated study of Romanesque and Gothic architecture, when Betty Lou Sullivan came run- ning to display a picture of an Egyptian temple which added more to the confusion. Ruth Bu- chanan ' s room was always crowded with fans when Ruth played the " Beer Barrel Polka " on her accordion, accompanied by Gamma Phi ' s other " Squeezebox Squeezers, " Frannie Becker and Mildred Beck. Another favorite selection seemed to be the " Marine Hymn ! " Prexy Erma Hughes and Charlotte White spent most of their time, which wasn ' t spent at some club meeting, exchanging military information gathered on week-ends, and making predictions as to when the war would be over. Barbara Nut- well, our glamour girl, gave inside information, compiled by George, on Medical School to Janet Harman, the songbird of Gamma Phi, and Mar- garet Ann Sherman, whose perfect disposition and willingness was the joy and envy of the en- tire house. The " Great Profile, " Barbara Bartlett, 144 First row: Anderson, Bartlett, Brereton, Brosius, Buchanan, Fike, Hall. Second row: Harman, Holt, Hughes, Killingsworth, McGill, Moon, Nutwell. Third row: Parlett, Reside, Rundles, Sears, Sherman, Sullivan, White. could usually be found in the Daydodgers ' room discussing with Betty Hall, another daydodger, the many complications that arise when certain men are caught in the draft, In the next room Mary Parlett and Dottie Brosius griped about the disadvantages of the rigid naval discipline. Seems as though all the girls were forced to make tre- mendous sacrifices for national defense — or maybe they were just " Khaki- Wacky ! " Mildred Sears wondered what personal non- sensities she could include in a psychological self- analysis, while Joan Moon breathed a sigh of re- lief because her days of practice teaching were over. Peggy Brereton and Clarabeth Holt com- pared memories of their former chapters at St. Louis and Oklahoma, but seemed to be growing fond of the Maryland chapter as well. It was a common occurrence to find the Gamma Phis gathered around the piano or the bridge table. They also spent niany hours knitting; how- ever, this group seemed to have learned the secret of mixing work and play in the correct proportion for they hit the books with good results. All in all, they were a pretty happy bunch of girls, those Gamma Phis.

The end of the first semester, however, saw theni firmly entrenched in their new white house over- looking the orchard. Life at the Sigma Kappa house . . . Ten min- utes of eight, and rising in the early dawn ' s light, Evelyn Smith, Sigma Kappa ' s human alarm clock, gently clouted everyone on the shoulder and screamed something to the effect that eight- ten classes were imtninent. Betty Haase, club secretary, was invariably the last one downstairs to breakfast. Blonde glamour girl, Betty JuUien, insisted on finishing breakfast, even though it usually meant carrying her burnt toast to class. Biology major Mary Frances Ryan rushed fran- tically out the front door warning everyone to be careful ot her pet hornets ' nest. Ann Wolf began to enter her second childhood, a result of the teaching methods she practiced on little morons. A strident " Hi, girlth " heralded the arrival ot Helen Carnin, who suffered a constant hangover from correcting speech defects. Dot Foerster, treasurer, was an active member ot the cra::y field house crowd, " Babe " Stratmann spent her spare time writing to a flying cadet in Mis- sissippi, whose shining wings she wore beneath her Sigma Kappa pin. If nobody could find Doris Wood, club prexy, it was merely because she was usually rushing from one important meeting on the hill to the next. A welcome addition to the Sigma Kap pas this fall was New Englander Fran MacFawn, who says things such as " Pahk the cab. " Frequently sitting next to the telephone was Isobel Adkins — waiting for that call from her Princeton tiger. A fiddle bow in one hand and a bowling ball in the other were Annie-Ruth Topping ' s usual equip- ment. Lacking a fiddle bow, but with a lovely voice, was Joyce Cafterty, third from the left in all the Women ' s Chorus events. Strawberry blonde Ann Whyte was always casting a favor- able vote for another house warming. " You meet the nicest boys, " she was often heard to exclaim. Corsage enthusiast Phyll Newmaker received 146 flowers from her fellow every time she wore a new dress — whether she needed it or not. Evelyn Foerster was small in size, hut her social calendar was not. Busy as she was, Charlotte Stubbs still kept an eye on the pledges.

Ihe Tri Delt House is the one with the crescent moon and three stars over the door- way — and the 57 varieties of cars hned up in front. When Mary Ellen Gilbert ' s father origi- nated the " Keep ' em flying " slogan, the Tri Delt social chairman, Eleanor Seiter, apparently took his advice to heart, for during 1941-42 she con- centrated on keeping the Tri Delts flying from one social function to another. Memories of this year will long be favorites v ith the Tri Delts . . . Prexy Edwina Hambleton acquired the name of " Chief " along with a professional touch in pound- ing her gavel . . . discipline was upheld also by House President Nancy Royal, who became hoarse from shouting " Quiet! " whenever Janet Heggie ' s amazing giggle shattered study hour, or Dottie McCallister gave forth with a line from My Bill, while Edith Dunford whistled her own version oi Elmer ' s Tune.

There they were, still in the living room playing bridge ■ — Shirley Conner, the blonde who had learned to mix studies and play, Kitty Perkins, the Alpha Xi ' s prcxy who gave up trying to keep track of them, Shirley Pfeiffer, who resigned from the " Old Maids ' Club " in the fall, and Cecil Myers who took her place when all her " fellas " left for the Air Corps. Upstairs red-headed " Kate " SchmoU screamed with rage when her placid roommate Jeanne Wir- sing went to bed at her usual 10 o ' clock. Lois Davis kept quiet hour as much as possible, while Loretta Boyan held open house for noisy day- dodgers across the hall. " Pat " Melton shared her year evenly among the hospital, the practice house, and Bobby. Jean Smith and Ellen Jeffers supplied the glamorous side of things by having an air for every occasion, whereas Marjorie Lovell took honors in athletics, being a physical education major and secretary of the W.R.A. Dotty Aiello sang her way to fame and drilled the pledges. Kay Shea, whose wardrobe was the envy of the house, lent all but her last pair of shoes willingly — praying silently for their safe return. Aileen Williams frantically made out bills and tried to collect money, while Barbara Wagner corresponded like mad. " Pat " Richards, social queen, found a little time to play tennis, while Helen Biesecker spent most ot her time concen- trating on the Delta Sigs in general, and one in particular. Jane Turner and Evelyn Mendum had brains and knew how to use them, while day- dodger Louise Teller found that beauty v zs no handicap. Erma Welsh and " Trudi e " Duvall laughed everybody into a good humor, even Jeannette Owen, who was busier than enough doing posters and working on the Terrapin, and Jimmy Yates, who was mourning her loss to the Air Corps. Elizabeth Gruver practiced her singing when she wasn ' t with her one and only. 150 Members: Dorothy AicUo, Helen Bicseckcr, Lorecta Boyan, Shirley Conner, Lois Davis, Hiltrude Duvall, Elizabeth Frohbose, Elizabeth Gruver, Ellen JcfFers, Mar- jorie Lovell, Mildred Melton, Evelyn Menduiii, Cecil Myers, Jcannette Owen, Katharine Perkins, Shirley Pfeiffer, Patricia Richards, Katherine Shea, Catherine Schmoll, Jean Smith, Louise Teller, Jane Turner, Barbara Wagner, Erma Welsh, Aileen Williams, Jeanne Wirsing, Sarah Yates.

O. Pi. One of the pillars of the local chapter was Jane Howard, the girl who never had a dull moment as president of the sorority and of Panhellenic Council. Doris Hamp- shire and " Uncle Charlie, " after an evening of bowling or admiring the beauties of the campus by moonlight, could usually be found chatting — or something — in the vestibule as Shirley Mackay and Joe came up the walk to join them. Bev Reinstedt, Long Island ' s pride and joy, was a virtual widow of the football, basketball, and track teams during their respective seasons, but in the few off-season days she really flourished. Many sighs and groans were heard from Eurith Maynard as she came wearily in from a day of practice teaching in some local grade school, along with " Mickey " Kuehle, who dashed up to her room to write to George, and who unsuccessfully tried to have quiet prevail in her classroom as well as in the house. Mary Vaiden, Jane Page, and Clara Vawter, the Home Ec gals, had many en- lightening stories to tell of the worrisome house- hold problems that arise daily at the practice house. Almost any time of the day or night, the fa- miliar " two for bridge " could be heard from card fiends Charlotte Warthen and Elaine Westlye, while blonde Jean Scheller waited by the phone for one of her many swains to call. Jay Andreae could usually be found in the library with Bill or engrossed in the composition of classical poetry, and Lillian Hendrickson made sure that the girls kept their marks up to par. Ann Speake and Kay Martin were in and out all the time catching up on their many activities, while Marian Beck rushed out on field trips and tried to get to classes on time. Prom leader Doris Thompson was a 152 First row: Andreae, Beck, Evert, Green, Hampshire. Second row: Hendrickson, Howard, Kuehle, Mackay, Martin. Third row: Maynard, Page, Reinstedt, Saum, Scheller.

PhylUs, the Wolfe, knocked at the door when the time came to collect bills; and " Beanie " Saum was the artistic member ot the sorority, adding her own individual touch to the Homecoming decorations or to the novel A.O.Pi rush parties. " Flossie " White seemed to prefer the domestic atmosphere of home life to the carefree life of a senior college " mogul. " During the fall, the A. O. Pi ' s captured one of the Homecoming awards for their novel house deco- rations, which followed the theme " ' Come into my parlor, ' said the spider to the fly.

Here, prexy Randa Beener plotted the future of Kappa Delta, while Doris McFarland held pledge meetings and worried about Mortar Board. Ruth Dashiell read the minutes at the meetings, while bank books and such kept Ann Hoen busy. Daydodger Kay Barker drove halt of Mortar Board up the hill to the meetings, while Women ' s Editor Alice James busied herself in the Diamond- bach office. Thirty-two freshmen succumbed to Nancy Holland ' s rush parties. Plans for the glamorous K.D. social functions kept Peggy Price busy. Pretty Mary Yeager furnished living proof that beauty and brains mix. Peals of laughter came from the end of the hall when " Newt " Long and Nancy Duby held their joke sessions. " Billie " Rayburn strove for better relationships between Georgetown and Maryland, as Ruth Stowcll and Betty Burner did with Annapolis. Home Economists Betsy Myrick and Erin Ellis dropped in at noon to see what was cooking and found Doris Bryant, Ruth Herson, and " Ginny " Miller leaving with the Theta Chis. They joined Joan Bell and Eileen O ' Neil, who were listening to Rosaleen Pifer ' s record col- lection. Mari Hess, dashing to get one ot her many phone calls, collided with " Heidi " Hermann, who was persuading people to go on a swimming club splash, and Lois Holland who was teaching the conga.

Bette Stone re- corded the minutes and hunted for more courses to fill out her " ology " major. Rose Marie Udell showed off her sunburn to Frances Dunberg, the calorie counter, while Frances discussed Home Ec problems, with Gloria Gottlieb, who moaned about " everything happens to me. " " Early to bed and early to rise " was the creed of house manager Sonia Weisberg. Ruth Weinstein could be found in any empty room practicing a speech, while red- headed Shirley Sherman chose her companion for the next week-end, and Alma Merican planned her next sojourn at Dental School. House president Mimi Kellman drew lots to see with whom she would spend the week-end, the Army, Navy, or Air Corps. Ruth Barsky could never keep track of time but kept her sense of humor in spite of being a Political Science major. " Mickey " Mednick jitterbugged her way through chemistry formulae while Audrey Levy, the living example of why gentlemen prefer blondes, cast yearning looks at the wedding ring on the finger of Shirley Rctf, who managed to look sweet sixteen in spite of it all. Elsie Floni held the dubious distinction of being the first girl to major in Comparative Lit. and the movies, while Rosadean Flaks sighed for Gene Autry and dreamed to his music. Bernice Margules knitted to a statistical formula as Alma Finklestein dug herself out of a pile oi Footlight Club notices so she could prepare for a heavy date at Johns Hop- kins. The girls with the X ' ogue creations were Muriel Horrowitz and Marilyn Klein. Mention of the moon and New York brought a faraway 156 Fi rst row: Atkin, Blankman, Bravman, Dunberg, B. Feldman, E.

Sylvia Bravman, the popular Sunday School teacher, went into a dream at the mere hint of Wilkes- Barre; Florence Spivak displayed her bridge talents to Babette Feldman, who studied at the oddest hours and usually fell asleep over the book. Lor- raine Blankman ' s sketches rivaled those of George Petty. Everyone on the hill envied the generation that would have Dorothy Jones for a teacher. And thus, the year closed, with everyone still amazed at the ability of white collar girl Shula- mith Atkin, who daydodged, pulled down A ' s and still remained active in the sorority.

Across the wide green field, a bevy of gayly dressed girls approached the house. President Sue Gusack, her dark eyes sparkling, was explaining to the ten girls the aims of the Young America Wants to Help Committee, of which she was chairman. She had her hands full in hur- rying from defense meetings to merchandise inter- views in Washington. Mildred Radin leisurely strolled along with half of her mind on genetics and the other half in New York. Humming a few bars of " Jenny, " Shirley Berkowich stopped long enough to insert into the conversation a few words about her piano lessons at the Peabody Conserva- tory of Music and the merits of dear old Thur- mont. With the treasurer ' s book under her arm, our all-American girl, Shirley Berman, was par- ticularly defense-minded. She couldn ' t decide among the Army, the Navy, or the Air Corps. Cynthia Baylin, her blonde head bent down, read a bit of a letter to Shirley. Cynthia, although a true Terp, was making plans for another week- end sojourn which was a kind of groundwork for her future career as a social worker. Rhoda Eskwith, the vivacious, curly-haired, half-pinter, found her way to the girls ' hearts through her unique menus. Next in line was Gloria Waldman, modeling her new suit which she made in sophomore clothing. With a far- away look in her black eyes, Esther Handler lazily walked along, planning how many hours of dreaming she could get in before dinner. Next in line was her roommate, Ruth Surosky, garbed in a white uniform; she limped across the field, but paused for a moment to show us her blistered knees, souvenirs from the practice house. Irene Schcr, counting knit one, purl two, stumbled over 158 a stone. With a handsome black-haired private on her mind, Irene couldn ' t be bothered to join the endless chatter of the rest of the group. Focus- ing her attention on her dinner, Marjorie Herman scampered across the field, and last in line came Margery Dopkin, weighted down by her recently acquired Greek jewelry, late because of the long trek from the dorm. Dashing up on the front porch the line broke up with cheery " hellos " to their housemother, who ushered them into the dining room.

The rushees stepped back into their second childhood. The way to a rus iee ' s heart was through sodas. Cigarette girl mingled with the rushees. 160 Presenting MISS MARYLAND of 1942 and her COURT Iraditionally, the Terrapin honors the University coed through its selection of Miss Maryland and her court. In this ivay ive can best personify the exquisite charm, the vivacious personality, the gracious bearing that have ever been characteristic of the Maryland woman. Therefore, it is with considerable pride that we present Miss Maryland and her court. 161 JVlosT closely associated with American beauty today is the name of John Robert Powers, former law student, actor, and, oddly enough, model. During the past twenty years Mr. Powers has been the head of one of the country s best known model agencies. Over a million girls, hopeful of appearing on magazine covers, have passed through the doors of his office. Out of this number only a small percentage have been selected to join his group of beauties, for he works on the principle that beauty is natural and not made.

This year President Emmett Kavanaugh car- ried on the ckib ' s tradition of fine music by bring- ing maestro Bobby Byrne to the campus for the first dance of the season. Held during Homecom- ing week-end, the dance proved one of the most successful of the year. The Christmas season was ushered in by Al Donahue, playing for the Christmas Rossborough. His " Low Down Rhythm in a Top Hat " plus the novel decorations combined to create a cheery atmosphere, symbolic of the occasion. Next on the roster of big name bands was Woody Herman. Although this dance was held between semesters and was Herman ' s second con- secutive night at a university affair, he was en- thusiastically received by the students who at- tended the dance. Joe White handled the finances of the club, Arthur Farnham was secretary, and Clarence Schauman, junior representative.

On the annual southern trip the Maryland debaters met the University of Virginia, Washington and Lee, Duke, and participated in the Rock Hill Tournament at South Carolina. The team not only visited other local campuses but entertained many visiting teams at Maryland and held several radio debates. The intramural series on the topic, " women should not be allowed to drive automobiles, " proved to be amusing as well as interesting. The club ' s activities included picnics and various in- tra-squad debates. These debates on entertaining resolutions gave practice to the debaters. An awards banquet was held, at which time a best debater ' s award was presented to the tnember of the varsity squad who had been the outstanding debater. An intramural tournament award went to the team which won the intramural series, and debate keys were awarded the outstanding varsity debaters, selected by the coach and president of the club. This year the club was not only able to boast of both men ' s and women ' s teams, but a freshman squad as well. Officers were: President, Charlotte White; Manager, Barnett Broughton; Vice-President, James Kinsel; Secretary, Georgiana Benjamin.

The committee is made up of the president and treasurer of the Men ' s Glee Club, Women ' s Chorus, the Student Orchestra, and the Clef and Key Society. Stuart Haywood was chairman of the group and Ted Stell handled the finances. LJ.NDER the direction of Hatlau Ran- dall, the student orchestra participated in a num- ber of concerts during the year and furnished the background music for a spring flower show. The musical accompaniment for " H.M.S. Pinafore " in April climaxed a successful year. Officers were: President, Stuart Haywood; Vice-President, Draper Sutcliffe; and Secretary, Annie-Ruth Topping.

The season began with several high school appearances, but the first real concert was given at the National Park Women ' s College in January . One of the few college glee clubs to be a mem- ber of the Associated Glee Clubs of America, the Marylanders participated in a rally and mass con- cert given by the Maryland district of that group. By his selection to the Common Repertoire Com- mittee of the association, Director Harlan Ran- dall received national recognition as one of the four outstanding musicians of the year. On the last day of February the club entertained the soldiers at Fort Meade. This was followed by the annual performance before the Maryland Casualty Company, an appearance at Annapolis, and two concerts with the George Washington University Glee Club. The student body was given an opportunity to hear the group when the Glee Club gave a campus concert in the early sprmg. The organization gave four evening concerts and appeared before several high school audiences when they went on a tour of the Eastern Shore of Maryland during the latter part of April. WOMEN ' S CHORUS provided both vocal and visual enter cain ment for a wide selection of gatherings T .HE INCREASED INTEREST in IllUSical activities on the Maryland campus was evidenced this year by the way in which the Women ' s Chorus was received at its first recital in the Ag- riculture Auditorium in January. This first con- cert of the year had previously been given before the Masons ' Club of Beltsville where it was equally well accepted. This concert was presented during the Christmas season and was composed very appropriately of a number of the more pop- ular Christmas Carols. The Chorus did its part toward National De- fense when it sang at the United Service Organi- zation Club in Laurel. March was the most ac- tive month of the year. During that month the group appeared before the Maryland Casualty Club in Baltimore and traveled to Annapolis where it performed before the local Red Cross chapter at the request of the Kiwanis. The season was closed with the annual joint concert in Wash- ington with the Glee Club of George Washing- ton University. Under the direction of Professor Fiarlan Ran- dall the Women ' s Chorus greatly expanded its repertoire this year and the membership roll ex- panded to a total of sixty-one members. President of the Chorus was Kay Martin, assisted by Vice- President Dorothy Aiello; Secretary Jane Chapin; and Treasurer Janet Scott. 174 Upper: MEN ' S GLEE CLUB First row: Maher, Benson, Fearnow, Cole, Randall, Stringer, Tate, Berman, Rosenstadt.

CLEF AND KEY v LEF AND Key comprised a large group of talented individuals who desired an outlet for their musical abilities on the campus. The organization boasted two outstanding annual accomplishments. In addition to putting on the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta " H. M. S. Pinafore, " the Varsity Show was cast, directed, and produced by the members. Bob Ziegele de- serves the credit for originating and writing " In- terruption Please " , a musical comedy given in March. It was produced and directed by Ted Stell and Bob Ziegele. The music was written and arranged by Jack Smith and the first annual song contest was won by Clarabeth Holt, whose win- ning tune was a great hit. The club was directed by an ctiicient staft headed by Ted Stell as chief executive, with Bob Steen as his right-hand man, Jean Thomas re- corded all formal discussions and Jane Chapin held the purse strings. All activities were pre- served tor posterity by Joe Decker, historian. Professor Harlan Randall was the faculty adviser. 176 Exponent of make-up, Anne Harvey exercises her talents backstage.

During the football season the band provided music between halves and entertained the spectators by executing various formations on the field. Usually these drills were executed with skill and precision, but at the Florida Homecoming game one of the members got the signals mixed and the " Hello " formation came out minus the " O " .

The Student Band accompanied the football team on many trips to other colleges and univer- sities. This year ' s schedule included a jaunt to Philadelphia, where television pictures were taken of the band formations, several trips to Baltimore, and one to Georgetown that failed to materialize. In the winter the hand provided musical enter- tainment at the basketball-bo.xing doubleheaders, featuring popular numbers along with the usual martial music. One of the more important events in the life of the student band was the annual spring concert held in May. In addition to these activities the band provided music for ceremonies held through- out the year in the Coliseum. Officers for the Student Band were Russell GofF, captain; Thomas Jones, drum major; James Shank first sergeant; Charles Seltzer, quartermaster; and Charles Beaumont, business manager. 179 RELIGIOUS LIFE COMMITTEE Ihe Religious Life and Social Service Committee encouraged religious harmony among the students this year by coordinating the mem- bers of the different denominations found on the campus. Campus vespers, long a tradition at Maryland, were revived under the sponsorship of the group. The committee also planned and car- ried out a religion emphasis week during the spring. Ihe Presbyterian Club, led by Presi- dent John Williams, held bi-monthly meetings, including worship services and faculty talks, fol- lowed by refreshments. With the help of Rev- erend Custis, the club ' s adviser, joint social func- tions were occasionally planned with Riverdale Presbyterian Church young people. Other club officers were: John Eberhard, vice- president; Barbara Wagner, secretary; and Joy Jones, treasurer. First row: White, Lee, Gewehr, Reid. Second row: Haring, Holm.

LUTHERAN CLUB 182 NEWMAN CLUB furnished a common ground of religious discussion for the Catholic students vJrganized to foster the spiritual, intellectual, and social interests of the Catholic students, the Newman Club plays an integral part in the religious life of the university. Under the auspices of the club the offering of Holy Mass was first inaugurated on the campus just a few years ago and student members ot the Catholic faith were brought closer together by the services of the club. During the meetings topics of current interest were discussed, the members listened to informa- tive lectures, and witnessed instructive moving pictures. For those who desired a more detailed discussion of either religious or educational prob- lems, special sessions were arranged. Aside from the intellectual part of the club ' s activities, the group held several informal dances at convenient intervals throughout the year. A float was entered in the annual Homecoming parade, and, in addition to the dances, the club held a number of social events during the second semester. At the last convention of the Federated New- man Clubs, President Patrick Quinn was awarded the National Memorial Trophy for the local group ' s outstanding work on the Maryland campus. Other officers for the year were Edward Wa- ring, vice-president; Anna Lee Mudd, secretary; and James Sneeringer, treasurer. First row: A. Aiello, D.

Y.W.C.A, Ihroughout the year the Young Women ' s Christian Association sought to serve the university in many different ways. Notable among the events sponsored by the " Y " were the reception for the incoming fresh- men, and a spring card party, at which time a sil- ver cup was presented to the sorority with the highest average. Officers were Ruth Dashiell, president; Marian Beck, secretary; and Betsy My rick, treasurer. Ihe FIillel Foundation served as a nucleus tor the social and spiritual life of every student of Jewish faith on the campus. The mem- bers participated in intramural sports, dances, in- formal discussions, and various other activities. Frequently suppers were given with outstanding speakers as guests. Morris Roseman led the group, with Betty Stone as vice-president; Miriam Shiff, secretary; and Daniel Goldman, treasurer.

Harry Hutson was president; Eileen O ' Neil, vice-president; Joan Bell, secretary; and Betty Anderson, treasurer. Ihe Home Economics Club partici- pated in many activities this year, cooperating particularly with various branches of national defense work. As an experiment the Home Eco- nomics Club and the Student Grange cooperated in social activities.

It was cstabhshed to secure recognition for all day- dodgers and now boasts the largest membership of any club on the campus. In September President Bud Uhland assumed office and led the members in upholding the prin- ciple that daydodgers must become more active in campus life. It was the object of the governing body to bring this about by increased activities of the club. Through the efforts of Howard Crom- well, social chairman, monthly dances, bowling and swimming parties, picnics, and a hayride were held. Teams were entered in all intramural sports and were very successful. In addition to a freshman daydodger mixer at the beginning of the first semester, a committee was appointed to help entering freshmen arrange for transportation for all commuters who had diffi- culty in going to and from College Park. The organization worked for lenient parking regulations, and through ceaseless efforts finally arranged to have a lunchroom for daydodgers in the Dining Hall. Hope of a student actix ' ities build- ing are still held by the members. Other officers who guided the club were Vice- President, Kay Barker; Treasurer, James Malcolm; Secretary, Mary Pailthorp. SWIMMING CLUB splashed merrily in the Ambassador pool, held life ' saving, diving classes Ihe Swimming Club afforded a winter substitute for those students of the University who enjoyed a suminer dip in a cool lake or the raging surf. Twice a month this group journeyed to the Ambassador Hotel pool for an hour or more of relaxation and relief from the drudgery of studies. A great deal of practical benefit was derived from Red Cross Life Saving classes under competent instructors, which were held at regular intervals throughout the year. Although there were no achievement requirements for membership in the club, several members were excellent swimmers and gave swimming and diving exhibitions at the meetings. Under the leadership of President Gilbert Perry the Swimming Club held its annual dance in the Gym-Armory in April and its gala Beach Party for the members at Beverly Beach, in May. Each member of the club contributed to the treasury at the start of the year and the proceeds from this were used to finance a dance and beach party. The reiTiainder of the fund Vt ' ent to obtain a special rate for the swimmers at the Ambassador Pool. Other officers for the year were Ben Coster, vice-president; Heidi Hermann, secretary; and Jackie Lovell, treasurer. 186 RaMMMHW First row: Aldridge, Mason, Hermann.

FOOTLIGHT CLUB jI long standing tradition on the campus, the Foothght Club added another suc- cessful year to its record. Four hits and no errors was the total score, and a campus full of satisfied playgoers attested to the popularity of the local productions. Credit went to President Jerry Pren- tice, who piloted the club through its first semester activities. Conflicting duties forced him to turn the presidency over to Aria Guild, who carried on through the second semester. The club opened the season with Percy and Denham ' s stage and screen hit, " Ladies in Retire- ment. " The almost all-girl cast did not daunt the veteran player Jack Cherry, who upheld the mas- culine reputation unaided. A few bouquets must be thrown in the direction of Marjorie Pinschmidt, who played the feminine lead. Such names as Jean Forbes, Louise Love, Helen Bruns, and new- comers Roberta Kells and Eleanor Seiter com- pleted the cast and explained why the first show of the year was a hit. The next production needed little advertising since the cast was a veteran one and was well- known to the university theater-goers. " No Time for Comedy, " Behrman ' s current hit, was the play, and Dr. Hale, the club ' s faculty adviser, directed Aria Guild and Jerry Prentice in the leading roles. Such familiar names as Walter Neal, Lorraine 188 Sister Dusty Bruns visited the " Ladies in Retirement. " Walter Neal tried to convince Aria Guild of her husband ' s infidelity in " No Time for Comedy. " Jean Forbes rendered " Tit Willow " in " Ladies in Retirement. " 189 Jackson, and Jack Cherry supported these stars. Making their Maryland debut, Charlotte Kidd and John Stuntz gave creditable performances. Again Mr. Dupler took over the reins and his directing inspired players Edith Simmons and Walter Neal, taking the lead parts, and Louise Love, Charlotte Kidd, Frank Mervine, and Jack Cherry to give an outstanding performance of Ibsen ' s " Hedda Gabler. " Mr. Dupler waited until spring to pull his next rabbit out of the hat. The auditorium was again crowded with an enthusiastic audience who saw the hilarious performance ot James Thurber and Elliot Nugent ' s " The Male Animal. " To preserve the " show must go on " tradition, there is a great deal of backstage work. If the eye could only pierce the stage curtain, Gunther Wer- ner, club vice-president, could be seen giving both the stage crew and his cigar a workout. He saw what had to be done and did it. However, the various stage crews deserved a hand for the work Jack Cherry demonstrated his romantic powers on Eleanor Seiter. Domestic troubles of Prentice and Guild were agitated by Cherry in " No Time for Comedy. " 190 Walter Neal extends a warm welcome to Roberta Kells under the disdainful regard of Edith Simmons. they did this year in making some of the best sets the club ever had. Much credit also went to the stagecraft class. " I need two bedroom lamps, a backgammon board, and two decanters of whiskey. " This con- glomerate request generally heralded the approach of a " prop " director. Erma Hughes, treasurer, and Jane Chapin could always be depended upon to have every " prop " in place when the curtain went up. Notice how smoothly the lights worked this year? All due to a brand-new switchboard con- structed and skillfully manipulated by George Stuntz. Mr. Dupler, technical director, also deserved credit for the smooth backstage organ- ization that had the sets for one show shifted and ready for the next act in eight minutes flat. Cooperation between backstage, actors, and directors made a successful year possible, and again the Footlight Club maintained its coveted position in the campus spotlight.

The merry peal of hunters ' horns, the vigorous, breath-taking rides over hill and down valley, and the tingle of excitement as riders and hounds close in on the quarry; all of these thrills, dear to the heart of the equestrian, played an important part in the life of Riding Club members. Boasting of a large and ever-increasing mem- bership, the club rapidly became an important part of university life. In October, the club be- gan its activities with several popular fox hunts. The annual Gymkhana, held midst autumn love- liness, proved to be a great success. The laurels which the horse show won in the spring ot 1941 spurred the club on to even greater effort this year. Top- flight hunters and open jumpers from Maryland, Virginia, and the Dis- trict of Columbia participated in the gala event, and the handsome Lieter Aitcheson Memorial Trophy A ' as awarded to the winning rider of the show. The horse show received such approbation in the course of its short history as to promise a brilliant future. Bill Stevens was president; Paul Wimert, vice- president; Helen Bruns, secretary; and Betty Jullien, treasurer. Mr. " Rosy " Pollock and Dr. L. S. Dodson were faculty advisers to the club. T R AI L CLUB indulged in the beauties of nature on numerous long hi es inE Terrapin Tratl Club is organized for those adventuresome souls with a hankering for fresh air, exercise, and the wide open spaces. Every two weeks the club members took all-day hikes or week-end camping trips to various points of historic and scenic interest. On the appointed day, rain or shine, they met in front of the library and were taken by car to the scene of action. Everyone wore old clothes, and was prepared to " rough it. " Meals were cooked over an open fire and, alter appetites had been appeased, the members sat around the camp fire telling stories and singing. At night they crawled into their sleeping bags or slept in open shelters.

WOMEN ' S DORMITORIES Anne Arundel Hall en masse. 200 HE ROTC was called upon to play a larger part in university life than ever before. The cadets were called upon to ma e sacriUces in their personal freedom and to learn the true meaning of authority. They learned to suhordi ' nate personal desires for the good of the university and the nation, and they learned that there are times when a man must surrender his personal freedom in order to save it. XT IS PARTICULARLY FITTING that WC should close our record of college life with sports and military science, since both are devoted to training able personnel to take their place in the lines of our nation ' s defenses. The ROTC will be called upon to take a larger part in university life than ever before. They will be called upon to make many sacrifices in their personal freedom. They will be required to maintain a discipline in some ways comparable to that which they will be placed under in the armed services. They will, they must, learn the meaning of the chain of re- sponsibility, of command, necessary to any prop- erly functioning army or business enterprise. They will learn that they must subordinate personal de- sires for the good of the university and later of the nation. Personal freedom is one of man ' s most cherished possessions, but there are times when he must surrender it temporarily in order to save it. There is much to be done, and the time has al- ready grown short. Before the war is over, and we can rebuild from the wreckage of the world, the nation will need hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of men, trained men, to carry the battle forward in the front lines, and to keep factories roaring and communication lines open in the rear. In order to save their nation, and, it may be, to save their own lives, the students must be trained to know what to do, and to do it quickly and well, whether in battle or in keeping production rolling. It is a military axiom that only those men who have been thoroughly, effectively trained, ever survive in battle. That we may continue to live and to progress as individuals and as a nation, we must learn much and suffer greatly. We can make great strides toward progress if we can learn those lessons we need to know at the university, rather than by bitter experience, when the experience may be disastrous rather than instructive. Sports, too, play their part in the life of the uni- They learned to cooperate through sports, to play the game through to the end. The University trained men to carry on the battle and to keep the factories roaring. versity. It is through sports that the American boy first learns to take care of himself, to cooperate with his teammates, to play the game fairly, and to keep giving the best he has, win, lose, or draw. He learns to take pride in his performance and to seek to improve it. Every student cannot be a great athlete, or even a varsity athlete, but intra- mural sports for men and women teach the same lessons, afford the same enjoyment, and furnish the same pride of achievement, that the varsity athletes, who carry the university ' s banner throughout the nation, enjoy. Whether they win or lose, they at least have the satisfaction of know- ing that they are adding to the physical fitness of the nation, at a time when physical fitness is needed to maintain the pace that we have set for ourselves. Those who play the game fairly on the athletic fields, those who represent their organiza- tions with honor are well prepared to play the game of life, or to play an even more desperate game, for as they once carried the banner of an organization into battle, so they may now be called on to carry the banner of the United States into battle for the preservation of the nation. We have presented here every phase of uni- versity hfe. We have sought to show you what it is that makes this university great, what it is that draws her students to her with an inseparable bond. It is more than the experiences they have gone through here, more than the memory of friendship and love, more than the pride of achieve- ment and the joy of working for a purpose. They are drawn to the University of Maryland by blood relationship. Wherever they are, whatever they do, they bear the stamp of the university upon them. Even as they are judged by their actions, so is the university judged. Those who have gone and will go from her gates have each left a part of their will to contribute something to the future of the world. It is thus that the university casts its influence on the life of the United States, and makes its contribution to progress. The fact that we have come this far on the road to greatness is indicative of the spirit and faith of the students. So, as another class leaves, we wish them well in their march toward progress. The road is hard, but they have been well trained. However, we caution them to remember one thing: " If one would be great, he must serve. " Let them carry Many students were called upon to carry the banner of the United States as they had once carried the banner of the University. Wherever they were called upon to serve, they served faithfully and well, carrying the job through to the end against any odds. themselves here, a contribution to the growth and progress of the school and of the nation. They have in turn taken with them all that we have in our power to give in preparing them for the roles they must play in life. The rest is up to them, to their courage and ingenuity, their stamina, and the influence of the university wherever they may be called upon to serve, that she may be known and honored through their work. FOOTBALL ivLTHOUGH BADLY BATTERED by gradua- tion, an ambitious group of sophomores arrived on the practice field in September to fill last year ' s vacancies and to prepare for one of the most im- posing schedules in Maryland ' s gridiron history. Troubles seemed to plague the team from the be- ginning and, in spite of fine playing by individual members, only three games were won. However, as the season drew to a close, it became more and more apparent that the Uni- versity had one of the gamest teams in years — a team which, nevertheless, continued to fight even in the final minutes of the worst rout. They closed the season with an outstanding performance against Washington and Lee in the Baltimore Stadium. First row: Mier, Nardo, Helboch, Cho- vanes, Dittmar, Hoopengardner, Gunther, Chacos, Cordyack, Miller. Second row: Conrad, Jarmoska, Taylor, Hunt, Morton, Heyer, Ulman, Rigby, Dunn, James.

Before the loud- John Cordyack John Morton est and most enthusiastic section of cheering " rats " in recent years, the Old Liners drove be- yond the Hampden-Sydney 5-yard line three times, but lacked touchdown plays to go over. The Terps finally took to the air in the last minute of the first half to shake off goal-line preju- dices; Bob James took a bullet-like pass from Mearle Duvall in the end zone for the score. Relishing the taste of a touchdown in their minds, the Terps gained one more in each of the last two periods with sophomores " Reds " Wright, Tommy Mont, Jack Micr, and Bob James leading the at- tack. Wright missed two and Mont missed one in conversion attempts. Instrumental in keeping the visitors back on their own side of the 50-yard line was Bernie Ulman, senior back, whose punting for the after- noon was superb. With one 70-yard punt plus other long ones, he bore hopes of keeping succeed- ing foes back. 207 MARYLAND, 6 WESTERN MARYLAND, 6 Ihe Terps started off brilliantly on a 56-yard jaunt, from the kick-off, that ended with a first down on the Terror ' s 6-yard line. Here the drive stalled and Western Maryland took the ball on downs. Maryland got under way when a Rigby to Du- vall pass on the 2-yard line looked like a sure goal. But the Terps were held again and the score at the half was 0-0. Western Maryland finally got the jump on the Terps. Starting with a first down from a pass on Maryland ' s two, they made their touchdown on the fourth try and failed the extra point; score: 6-0 Terrors. Late in the fourth quarter Maryland marched 64 yards to tie the score; 6-6. The team did not feel quite so bad about the score because it rolled up 317 yards to Western Maryland ' s 97.

Otarting with an on-sides kick thac caught the Tcrps flatfooted, Duke recovered the ball on the Maryland 37-yard line. No Maryland man had attempted to handle the ball on the kick- off, and two plays later Duke was over for a touchdown. This quick score was a blow from which Maryland could not recover until the next quarter. In the meantime, the Blue Devils rolled up 35 points. In the second and third periods, Maryland pro- duced a moral victory by allowing Duke to score only six points during thirty minutes, and in the final stanza the Terps turned to their aerial attack to penetrate to the Devils ' 10 on three consecutive first downs. At this point the great Duke team, later to be Rose Bowl contestants, smothered any further scoring attempts. After a hopeful third period. Duke ' s great Steve Lach and Winston Siegfried again alternated in turning the ends and crashing the line for 19 more points. Lach later became an All-American, while many other Duke players were mentioned on various All-America teams. Mier, Rigby, and Brenner were responsible for keeping Maryland in the game with their passes to Alexander and Gilmore. 209 HOMECOMING MARYLAND, 13 FLORIDA, 12 U. of Md.

The sophoiTiores had beaten the frosh in their annual tug-of-war. Alumni registration had previously officially opened the program. After the dedication of a new gateway by the Class of 1910 the crowd swarmed into the stadium for the annual Homecoming game with the Uni- versity of Florida.

In the evening, and on inco the wee hours, the crowd danced at a Victory Ball in the Gym- Armory. Sandy-haired Mearle Duvall put his basket- ball training into good use before the homecom- ing crowd of 7,500 fans when he made a one- handed catch of " Reds " Wright ' s bullet-like pass late in the last period and sprinted 45 yards for the final touchdown. Maryland scored first in the second period, the opening of which found Maryland on the ' Gators ' 42. From there, with Duvall passing to Barnes, Maryland went to Florida ' s S. Then Wright took over with a line-plunge attempt and a final pass to Cordyack, v ho fell over from the i-yard line for a touchdown. Maryland was set back on its goal-line time and again with brilliant plays by Tommy Harrison in bringing back short Terp punts. The Maryland line held on first the 2 and then the i-yard lines, until Harrison brought back Ulman ' s punt to the Old Liners ' 35. This set up was the beginning for both Florida touchdowns. 211 ' Smoke " Brenner gets off a long one late in the Penn game. Max Hunt MARYLAND, 6 PENN, 55 In the first period Penn powerhoused Maryland for twenty points. In the second period, after Penn had acquired its fourth touchdown, Maryland opened up with a seemingly impossible march. Starting on their own 21 , the Terps drove to a touchdown. Mier passed to Duvall on the 47, then Barnes gave the best exhibition of pass receiving of the afternoon by reaching up between Stiff and Gifford to take one of Duvall ' s passes on Penn ' s 19. Cordyack and Mier slipped through some beautiful holes in the Quaker line to the 8, from which Duvall tossed one to Cordyack for the only Maryland score. Alexander ' s conversion attempt was blocked. The second half gave indications of turning into a reputable contest, but Penn ' s plentiful reserves tired the outclassed Terps enough to allow 21 more points in the final period. MARYLAND, RUTGERS, 20 Ihe elements, plus the Rutgers men, were against the Terps. Driving rain halted the Terp aerial attack and the blockers could not keep their feet well enough to push the heavier Rutgers team out of the way for the ball carriers. The first 1 1 minutes of the game settled down to a punting duel between Ulman of Maryland and Schmitt of Rutgers. Finally a rushing penalty against Maryland on Rutgers ' 32 gave the Rari- tan crew a first down. Capestro and Utz then car- ried the ball for a touchdown in six plays. The second touchdown came in tour minutes of the second period on a blocked punt. A fighting Maryland team marched 65 yards after the kickoff for the third period, the main gaining being done on a 42-yard end run by Rigby. This threat was stopped on Rutgers ' 5.

GEORGETOWN, 27 MARYLAND, V.M.L, 27 IVIaryland traveled to Griffith Sta- dium to meet Georgetown, their traditional rival in sports. Although the Georgetown boys were not the Hoyas of last year, when they furnished Orange Bowl competition for Mississippi State, they still had the weight in their line, resulting in a decided advantage. Maryland had just as flashy and competent a back field as the Hoyas, but the backfield could not travel when a light line had to push around a beef trust. Our line may have been lighter but as far as quality was concerned, it was far superior. In the second period, Maryland held for four downs on its 1-yard line, and again in the same period, the Hoyas tried twice before a fake pass drew the Terps out so that Bulvin could score. Conrad, Alexander, James, and Burlin we re the stalwarts of the line. i_ URlNG THE ENTIRE FIRST QUARTER, thc Keydets were set back on their heels by the boom- ing 65-yard punts of Duke Alexander, classy high- jumping end. Maryland was finally set back to its own 10 where a clipping penalty forced the team back on its i-yard line. The kick was short to thc 35-yard line, setting up the first V.M.I, touch- down. After this the great V.M.I, combination of Pritchard and Muha began to click and Maryland didn ' t get into enemy territory until after the Keydets had scored two touchdowns. The half- time V.M.I, kickofl was taken by Maryland to the V.M.I. 35 where the drive stalled. From there, V.M.I, took over and the Old Liners showed fight by executing two magnificent goal line stands in thc fourth period, first on the 1-foot line and later on the 10-yard line. Al Blozis bears down on Rigby, while (below) Mier sidesteps a few more of the Georgetown Hoyas. Mont eludes a pair of V.M.I, tacklers. 213 MARYLAND, 6 W. L., iwo Baltimore boys, with five other seniors in the Hneup, bowed out of Maryland foot- ball with a clear-cut triumph over the Washington and Lee Generals. Du ' all and Ulman were the two Baltimore sparkplugs in a game that showed overpowering attack, comparable to no other game during the season: 211 yards for Maryland against 45 for the Generals. The game started so slowly that by halftime most of the 4,000 spectators were a bit bored by the two apparently evenly matched teams strug- gling between their own 35-yard lines. The Maryland boys must have eaten plenty of raw meat between periods, because a short punt by the Generals, landing on the Maryland 39, was immediately taken over for a touchdown. Senior Duvall and sophomore Mont collaborated, with Mont finally slicing off tackle from the 6 for the only Maryland score. Bernie Ulman Morton and Heyer, senior Iniemen, played bril- liant defensive ball, twice spilling Baugher, the Generals ' passer, for 10-yard losses. Duvall blocks for Rigby against Washington and Lee. 214 BASKETBALL An all Sophomore team, capable reserves, and a flashy scorer combined to form a surprisingly welhplayed bas etball season With only one senior, who was in- jured before the start of the season, and an inex- perienced group of juniors, Coach Shipley decided to pin his basketball hopes on a fast-stepping sophomore five. This was probably the first all- sophomore team ever to start the season for Mary- land, and it performed progressively better despite a difficult schedule. Mearle Duvall, the senior, was finally able to ioin the team half way through the season, but Coach Shipley Manager Joe White First row: Mont, Travis, James, Duvall, Schuerholz.

The season started with a gratifying win over Richmond by the score of 41-23. Even the loss to William and Mary was close enough to show a strengthening of Mr. Shipley ' s pet zone defense. With such reassurances, the Terps went on to be beaten by the deadly mountaineers of West Vir- ginia University, and before self-confidence could 216 Fetters scores one against Duke. A Terp sinks a basket in spite of stiff Virginia defense. be regained with a " breacher, " the Old Liners were sent to New York to meet three of the strongest teams in that area. Seton Hall routed the Terps worse than had West Virginia, hut the team im- proved enough in the remaining games ot the tour to get 49 points against powerful St. John ' s of Brooklyn. Maryland now began to realize that it had one of the hottest individual scorers in its history in lanky Ernie Travis, who had ac- counted for 94 points up to this time, an average of 15 per game. Tommy Mont was the only other Terp even hinting at future scoring power. In their first home game the Old Liners showed ability in a decisive win over Washington College, and rose to great heights to defeat Georgetown, their traditional rivals irom the District of Co- lumbia. However, George Washington effec- tively silenced any talk of a mythical District championship, and with two defeats in a single week by the Washington and Lee team, Mary- land ' s ball-hawks, for the second consecutive time in 26 years, failed to qualify for the play-offs of the Southern Conference Championship Tournament. When the William and Mary game arrived, the Terps were conceded but slight chance to defeat these contenders for the conference championship, but Maryland was no respecter of standings that night, and gained a ten-point lead which was never overcome. The next night the Terps were smothered bv the smoothest brand of basketball 217 ever seen at the Coliseum, for West Virginia stopped at College Park on its way to the National Championship at Madison Square Garden. But the season ended on a hopeful note when the team functioned as a composite unit in defeating the high-ranked Keydets from the Virginia Military Institute. Ernie Travis lived up to predictions hy scoring an approximate average of fifteen points per game for a season ' s total of 377, the largest ever amassed by a Terp player. Tommy Mont de- veloped into one of the best all-around players on the team, scoring a very respectable iSi points. These two players accounted for 6S percent of Maryland ' s entire total, and showed the unbal- anced condition of the team better than anything else. James, Schuerholz, and Duvall were excel- lent floor players, but could not make enough shots to balance the scoring. The second team saw an unusual amount of action, for " Ship " was continually trying out new player combinations. Boys like Fetters, Horn, Gordy, Steiner, and Baitz contributed much to the season.

EASTERN CHAMPIONS With the return of five experienced mittmen and a select group of hard hitting recruits, Maryland ' s new boxing mentor, Bobby Goldstein, saw promise of a squad that was to surpass all past Terp teams. Little Jud Lincoln, a fast step- ping leather slinger of past seasons, encouraged by wins and added weight, moved into the 127- pound bracket to make room for flyweight Joe Cicala at 120 pounds. Tom Jones, Maryland ' s sensational 135-pound " Kid Galahad, " proved to be the find of the year as he outboxed and out- smarted opponent after opponent. " Hotsy " Alperstein, our perennial producer of pugilistic points in the 145-pound class, remained the Old Line headliner as he consistently came through with victories. Pat Quinn, the long armed 155- pound Irishmen, showed winning form, while our " hard luck boy, " 165-pound Johnny Gilmore, displayed wares creditable to an up and coming champion. In the heavier weight classes Herb Gunther and Len Rodman, Maryland ' s blitzkreig boxers, punched for points that consistently spelled " win. " This team proved its caliber with a triumphant conclusion, when on March 7, it travelled to Rodman swings haymaker at Parlow of Virginia. 219 Coach Bobby Goldstein Manager Smelser prepares " Hotsy " for the next round. Memorial Gymnasium at the University of Vir- ginia to be a guest participant in the Eastern Intercollegiate Boxing Tournament. This guest team eased Cicala, Lincoln, Alperstein, Gilmore, and Gunther into the finals. Although losers in each of their final bouts, these boxers produced the points that made their team Eastern Inter- collegiate Champions. This fitting climax to a wonderful season saw the University of Maryland standing victorious over Syracuse, Penn State, Virginia, Western Maryland, Army, and the Coast Guard Academy. In the season ' s initial bout, the South Carolina " Gamecocks " gained a tie with the Terp gladia- tors after a spirited session of slugging. The fea- ture attraction of the evening occurred when Tom Jones sent Sam King of Carolina to the canvas in the third round, marking the campaign ' s first knockout. Gunther displayed the ability that had made him Conference light-heavyweight cham- pion when he " kayoed " his opponent in the second round. However, Tom Stevenson, the South ' s last hope, received a close decision nod over heavy- weight Rodman to leave the evening ' s debut at a stalemate. The Maryland mittmen met their first Waterloo at the hands of a tough Coast Guard Academy team. Starting out in high gear, the Terps won three of the first four contests, but bogged dt:)wn against superiority in the heavier weights and lost the match by a five to three score. The Old Liner pugilists settled accounts with the Green Terrors when they pounded out a lop- sided six to two decision over their ancient rival, Western Maryland. The upstatcrs ' hopes of win- ning were blasted when Pat Q uinn stopped his opponent in the first round. Johnny Gilmore started and ended the most sensational fight of the evening when he earned the referee ' s nod over Carlos Ortenzi. The curtain was very appro- 220 priately drawn to the evening ' s entertainment and to the Terror captain, Harry Baker, when Lcn Rodman brought spectators to their feet when he sent his opponent to the canvas. Gunther scores T.K.O. over Bauer of South Carolina. The University of Virginia won a 4 to 3 triumph in the eighth renewal of Terp-CavaUer fisticuffs when big Milt Parlow won the referee ' s nod over Rodman. Virginia ' s Willie Barnett, unbeaten through high school, frosh, and varsity boxing matches, lost his winning streak in the evening ' s best bout when Tom Jones traded grudge punches to earn a favored decision. " We ' ll take our time, watch for an opening, and let ' em have it, " said Coach Goldstein. This bit of advice was followed to a " T " that night in Brookland Gym when Bobby ' s boys " swung from the heels " to beat a highly favored Catholic Uni- versity unit. This was Maryland ' s first win over the Cardinals since 1935. Undefeated " Hotsy " Alperstein, 145 ' pound star, assured the team of nothing worse than a tie when he made his early lead stand up for a victory over Captain Hughes of C.U.

Nor did the referee have a difficult decision to make in the 127 -pound bout, for Jud Lincoln pummeled his opponent at will for the duration of the bout. Two draws, and a win over Alex Bobenko, rookie boxer who was replacing Quinn, gave the previously unbeaten Gobbler team the only points of the evening.

This 1942 version of the old Indian pastime was a supreme climax to Maryland ' s thirty-two years in collegiate " skull-cracking. " Although the Terps current lacrosse set-up was hard hit by graduation and the loss of such stars as Mueller, Slesinger, Sexton, and Graham, an all-out pro- gram developed a squad of stickmen who were potential ail-Americans. This Faber-Heagy team built around Vanden- Berg, Grelecki, Stockbridge, Tarbert, Ulman, Dittmar, Fetters, Burlin, McGregor, and Forbes was generally conceded by lacrosse critics and experts to be one of the best stick combinations Mi " - ' : J - First tow: Bryan, Mariner, Dittmar, Pavesich, Tarbert, Taylor, Rowny, Forbes. Second row: Hill, VandenBerg, Fetters, Grelecki, Broughton, Coster, Stockbridge, Todd. Third row: Vial, Hoyert, Mont, Mc- Gregor, Burlin, Armacost, Hazle- hurst, Eierman, Keller. 223 41 •-. Milt VandenBerg scores against Baltimore Athletic Club ever produced in college competition. ' ' Our Team is Red Hot " formed an apropos cheer for a truly cooperative aggregation that had power and polish. The Old Liners made their lacrosse dehut on April 2, when they routed a scrappy, but hope- lessly outclassed, Harvard team. The Terpmen worked like a well-oiled pinball machine, clicking oft points to earn one free game. The Crimson team " dribbled " the ball past the Black and Gold goalie only twice, during the last minute of the first half and the first minute of the last half. The attack, paced by Ray Grelecki with 4 goals, hit its stride and shot the ball past the opposing de- fense almost continuously. Loyola, playing to the losing tune of iS to 5, Todd Hid Forbes Stockbridge Dittmar McGregor Thumm Grelecki 224 was number two on Maryland ' s Hit Parade. Conductors VandcnBerg and Ray Grelecki started the fireworks when they rippled the net to gain, six and three points respectively. With the ex- ception of this phenomena, scoring honors were evenly spread out. The midfielders showed a big improvement over their previous game in that they were much more aggresive in their offense and defense. Maryland never had a lacrosse team that could clear out faster or more smoothly than this new aggregation. Cooperation between the midfield and defense had the opponents " tied up " an d " runnmg in circ ircles. " The Terrapins gained their third straight one- sided lacrosse triumph when they overpowered the Baltimore Athletic Club 13 to 1. VandcnBerg was once again the honor man for the afternoon ' s engagement when he evaded his opponents on several occasions in the first period to run up an early lead for the Liners. In the second quarter both teams settled down to a grim struggle and scoring honors were evenly divided, with Taylor flipping one for Maryland and Lewis coniing through with B.A.C. ' s one and only marker. Maryland started a scoring splurge after the half- time that carried it well ahead of the Baltimore men.

The Duke team was sadly lacking in finesse, but offered plenty of action. The game did serve its purpose in hardening the players for a tough scrap with Army. Hopkins, Princeton, and Army shaped up as the big Maryland opponents, hut the Terps had proved they could rack up points and needed only to prove their ability to keep enemies from doing the same. Slated to graduate were Ralph Burlin on the defense; Bernie Ulman, Bill McGregor, and Landis Hill in the midfield. There was no loss in attack men. This left such a large number of players returning that the hopes for future teams were very bright. 226 TRACK Bob James takes the hurdles. Ihree meets " went hy the hoards " he- fore Maryland ' s 1942 track team began its out- door campaign when, under the capahle guidance of Eddie Quinn, the Terps turned in some excel- lent records. On February 7 the Maryland relay team, com- posed of Boh Montgomery, Howard Gugel, Randall Cronin, and Boh Condon, hegan the in- door season hy taking third place in the Millrose games at New York. Three weeks later thirteen Old Liners journeyed to Chapel Hill for the Southern Conference indoor games, returning to College Park w ith two cham- pions and third place in team competition.

Duke Alexander won the high jump for the Terps second cham- pionship in two years in that event, with a jump of 5 feet 11 ' 4 inches. The day after the meet, Duke left school to join the Marine Corps, thus depriving Maryland of many sure points in the outdoor season. The Maryland trackmen took fourth place in the Catholic University games at Riverside Sta- dium, in a thrill-packed meet which saw Greg Rice of N.Y.A.C. break another world ' s record in in the 2 -mile run. Carlos Englar, capable soph pole vaulter, turned in his usual sterling perform- ance to win the event in setting a meet record ot Tilley broad-jumps against V.M.I. 228 11 feet lo inches. One of the closest races ot the evening was run hy Randall Cronin who took sec- ond place in the 660-yard run behind John Strasen- baugh of Georgetown. About the second week in March the Terps dug their spikes into the cinders and began practice for their eight outdoor meets. The team, perennially weak in field events, was bolstered by a strong ag- gregation of sophomores from last year ' s unde- feated frosh squad. Blacksburg was the scene of the first meet, as the Terps battled to a 63-63 tie with the V.P.I. Gob- blers. Soph Stirling Kehoe took scoring honors with victories in both the mile and two-mile, and a well-paced race in the SSo saw Bob Condon and Stan Kihn break the tape together in the good time of 2:06. Carl Englar again surpassed all competition in the pole vault as he cleared the bar at 12 feet. On April 14, a powerful V.M.I, squad turned back the Terps, 7 ' ] ' 2 ' Y2 O " the local track.

Tiny Horn threw the discus to a new record. In their six remaining meets, the Terps ap- peared to have a winning combination with a good chance for some outdoor Conference titles, Bob Condon being favored to repeat his indoor victory in the SSo. Maryland presented a well- balanced squad in both running and field events. In the loo-yard dash and the 220, Gugel, Adams, and Carolan were all outstanding. Montgomery, Cronin and Condon were the leading men in the quarter, along with Lou Chacos and Vernon Sul- tenfuss. Condon doubled in the half with Stan Kihn, who left for the Army late in May. Stirling Kehoe was the mainstay in the mile and two-mile, aided by Pat Quinn, Jud Lincoln, Wylie Hopkins, and Roy Skipton. In the hurdles Bob James, Dick O ' Brien, and Bill Helbock were the outstanding competitors. James also doubled in the javelin while " Tiny " Horn was one of the top discus-throwers in the area. Horn was sup- plemented in the discus and shotput by Boots Conrad. In the broad jump Reeves Tilley, Joe Adams, and Jack Mier gave good performances, while Conference Champ John Gilmore and Carlos Englar handled the high jump. Englar was ex- pected to gain experience enough to crack a few records in the pole vault, with Bill Merriken and Bob Senser also collaborating on the vaulting. 230 BASEBALL Danny Boothe scores only run in Michigan game. L RACTICE WAS INTERFERED with hv snow and rain so that Coach Shipley ' s diamond crew had difficulty preparing for the strong op- position that faced it at the beginning of the sea- son, but showed signs of improvement as the men got more actual playing experience. With seniors returning such as Mearle Duxall, who last year batted well over .400, and played a good fielding game at first base; Roscoe Whipp, who was a highly capable third sacker and wielded a mighty bludgeon at the plate; and the veteran and likable " Pop " Wharton, who added steadi- ness to the Keystone spot as well as to the battery, Shipley built his starting combination around these three.

Danny Boothe added smooth fielding at center field, while Bill Ellett and Dick Cleveland proceeded to compete for the left field position. " Stuffy " Evans held down the right field spot and could he counted on for at least one hit in nearly every game. A good prospect for future nines proved to be sophomore " Smoke " Brenner, who showed major league caliber in handling his chores as catcher, and who alternated with veteran Kenny Brans- dorf behind the plate. Max Hunt showed up well in pre-season pitch- ing and was expected to be the mainstay of the hurling staff " . Bob Smith, " Lefty " Fulton, and Joe Hoopengardner composed the rest ot the more experienced part of the pitching congregation, while sophomore " Reds " Wright showed that he could handle pitching duties with the best of them. The first game of the season proved to be one of the most trying. Maryland lost to the Rich- mond Spiders by the overtime total of 11-15, the winning Spider runs being scored when Mac Pitt, Jr. , slammed a home run with the bases loaded in the tenth inning. Mcarle Duvall hit safely three times in the encounter but was insufficiently sup- ported by the rest of the battery in the slugfest. The next day more trouble seemed in store for the luckless Terps as they dropped their second 232 Taking out time for batting practice. game to the Tar Heels ot North Carohna at Chapel Hill. Bob Smith held the hosts to five hits but walked in three runs to allow North Carolina to win 6-0. The Terps were again shut out on the following day by a 7-0 score, being limited to three hits while the Tar Heels manu- factured their seven hits into seven runs. On April 6, the double-header played at Duke resulted in two more defeats for the Terps, but the performance was not as bad as it seemed. Coach Burt Shipley could find something to smile about in the first game when rookie Jack Wright survived seven innings before suffering an eighth- inning letdown that brought about his S-3 defeat. Vogel Duvall Boothe Brenner Hunt Wharton K ' Hoopen- Ww gardner Evans 233 Duke took advantage of four hits, a walk and error to score four runs and sew up the game, but Wright showed enough stufT to warrant future service on the firing hne. The second game with the Blue Devils resulted in another defeat for the Old Liners when Duke shoved across four runs in the first inning to clinch the ball game. Max Hunt entered the game in the second stanza and buoyed Terp hopes by scatter- ing six hits and allowing one run to be scored in the eight innings through which he served as relief pitcher. The Old Liners could not come through with the stick punch, however, and the game ended 5-3, Duke. The final game ot the road trip brought another defeat at the hands of the University of Virginia, 16-5, and left the Terps still seeking their first victory. Coach Shipley i,BYi,i% ..3C.

TENNIS With only two oi last year ' s squad missing, Coach Alan Kershner looked forward to another successful season. Practice began early on the composition courts and in the coliseuin when the weather was too forbidding. Richmond was scheduled to be first on the list of twelve matches to be played by the Terps. This match was rained out, so Navy proved to be the opening engage- ment. Coach Kershner started Doyle Royal at the number one position against Navy ' s Spreen, S-6, 4-6, 6-1. Spreen, who was rated quite high in local circles, lost out only after a hard-fought duel. Maryland ' s only other win was rung up by Elwood Bates, who won over Fowler in straight Royal drives forehand across the net in match with Catholic University. sets, 6-2 and 7-5. This was typical of the close inatches encountered during the afternoon, but Slater Clarke and Bill Gottlieb also lost their con- tests in straight sets, which they did not give up without a desperate struggle. 235 Coach Kershner Baugher backhands in Catholic University match. Strauss and Gottlieb won the first set of their doubles to extend the match to three sets, while the other two succumbed in straight sets. The final score of the match was 7-2, Navy, but Coach Kershner expressed his satisfaction with the squad ' s showing despite defeat, for last year the Navy hung a much more decisive whipping on the Old Liners. The Terps looked forward to a more successful conclusion to the season than the start had been, but the schedule included such teams as North Carolina, Duke, Georgetown, Virginia, and George Washington, all of whom possessed strong teams but did not figure to blank the Terps in any of the matches. With only two members graduating, next year ' s team was expected to come up to, if not surpass, the standards set by Terp tennis teams of the past. Slater Clarke, Bill Gottlieb, Elwood Bates, and Merle Strauss were slated for at least one more year of service. Although the start of the season was discouraging, the kiture looked hopeful to the coach and his racquet-swinging proteges. 236 CROSS COUNTRY Kehoe won the Duke meet.

Jv GREAT CROSS COUNTRY STAR bcCame a great cross country coach when Tommy Fields took over the reins of Maryland ' s 1941 harrier squad. Two wins, two losses, and third place in the Southern Conference was the record compiled by this dynamic lad in his first year on a Varsity team. Sparked by seniors Gene Ochsenreiter and Bobby Condon and sensational sophomore Stirling Kehoe, the harriers scored big victories over Duke and Georgetown, bowing only to North Caro- lina and Virginia. Ochsenreiter, Condon, Bob Montgomery, and Roy Skipton ran their last races for the Black and Gold this year, all turning in excellent perform- ances. Kehoe, Stan Kihn, and Jud Lincoln will wear Varsity uniforms again next year. Maryland placed third to North Carolina and Duke in the Southern Conference meet, when the Terps played host for the second consecutive year. Ochsenreiter was the first Old Liner to score, tak- ing sixth place. Besieged in the early part of the season by the draft and injury jinxes, the Terps rallied to turn in a fine record for this year. An innovation was the running of a four-mile course instead of the customary five miles. 237 WRESTLING Md.

Coach Joe McDaniel weight, Sully Krouse, and undefeated 175-pound Champion Paul McNeil, were declared inelligible due to the Southern Conference three-year com- petition ruling. Searls and Dunn at 135 and 165 pounds re- spectively were the only experienced men return- ing and proved to be consistent point-getters. Find of the year proved to be heavyweight Luther Con- rad, who, although lacking experience, capably filled the vacancy. Norman Glasgow in the 121 bracket contributed balance to the other end of the weight listings. The i2S-pound class was ably hurdled by Johnny Armiger, while red- headed Doty Remsburg flattened opponents at 145 pounds. Dick Armstrong contributed color and authority to the 155-pound class and Jack Lee turned in a good record at 175 pounds. Climax of the season was the overwhelming win for Maryland in the District of Columbia A.A.U. tournament, held in the Women ' s Field House. Second to the Terps in points was the Dis- trict Y.M.C.A. with 21 points. In taking the team crown, Maryland had four individual cham- pions, Glasgow in the 121, Searls in the 145, and Crom, on the team for the first time, took the 165- pound crown. Paul McNeil was eligible and ex- hibited a smooth style in gaining his 44th straight amateur win from Vern Heiser of the Y.M.C.A. Three runners-up also wore the Black and Gold; Armiger, 12S, Herb Swindell, 135, and Sid Ahrams, who lost to Ted Crom in the 165-pound final bout. Unless cancelled by the new Athletic Program, the team looked forward to a more successful season next year, since only Searls and Dunn graduate. 239 SOCCER ilSHI H I HMH P fn ' W r ■ « .-.: ( • 1 Tilley dribbles one down for another goal.

The year-round program offered intra- mural competition for various campus organiza- tions, and sororities, in such activities as field hockey, basketball, volleyball, tennis, badminton, archery, and bowling. The extended ROTC drill period afforded the Maryland coeds another hour in which to carry on their intramural games and keep fit tor the war effort. Early in the fall the association held a bicycle ride around fdains Point, after which there was a picnic supper in Rock Creek Park. The Square Dance attracted over two hundred students in " back country " costumes, while later in the sea- son ice-skating and roller-skating parties, held Bowling combined classwork and recreation.

Wysor, Jr. P.M.S. T. LJ.NDER THE LEADERSHIP of Col. Rohcrt E, Wysor, Jr., the University of Maryland ROTC regiment offered the most varied training program of any unit in the Third Corps Area, and, as far as is known, in the country. The University was able to ofler an obstacle course and a number of intercompany athletic programs for hardening and conditioning the cadets; a bayonet course for training soon-to-be commissioned officers in the proper instructional methods for the bayonet; and a combat range which afforded the students an opportunity to fire musketry problems, by squads, at landscape tar- gets simulating battle conditions. The cadets learned how to post a guard by keep- ing a guard on the Armory and all military prop- erty 24 hours a day. Changes in the instructional program also became apparent when Colonel Wysor ordered that all classes be held out ot doors as much as possible, so that students could have an opportunity to execute tactical problems and practice scouting and patrolling. Juniors and seniors, instead of learnmg higher military theory, were taught the detailed duties of the second lieutenant and all the phases of good platoon leadership. In this way, the University took a leading role in training aggressive officers for the nation ' s fighting forces. Lieutenants Beall and Judd discuss relative merits of long and short bayonet thrusts. 248 Company " A " passes in review on Maryland Day. Cadet Lt. Colonel NEAL DOW, Jr. Cadet Colonel JAMES E.

PERSHING RIFLES 1 HE University of Maryland ' s Com- pany C, Fifth Regiment of the National Society of Pershing Rifles, had an eventful year under Capt. Samuel Moore, ist Lieut. Vernon McKinstry, 2nd Lieuts. Robert Rivello, James Updegratf, and Geoffrey Nairn, and ist Sgt. Fred Kohloss com- prised the remainder of the officers. Activities for the year included the regular weekly drills, massing of the colors on f omecom- ing Day, an escort for Lord Halifax on his visit, an initiation banquet and a final banquet, and the annual formal dance. Pershing Rifles at Maryland is a selective mili- tary fraternity and drill company whose members are chosen from the basic ROTC unit. Officers are elected from the previous members who, after completing their basic training, were admitted to the advanced ROTC course. Pershing Rifles on parade. Honor guard impressed Lord Halifax. 254 ARMY CAMP LIFE OOMEWHERE AROUND JuNE I5, SOmC seventy-odd ROTC officers put in an appearance ac Fort George G. Meade to begin six weeks ' trainmg in the fine points of infantry tactics. This included days on the rifle, pistol, and automatic weapons ranges, tactical problems to be worked out by companies, night marches, and one long march with an overnight camp at the end, in the course of which the cadets learned the first names and family history of every wood tick on the reservation. The orders for the day drew a resigned smile from weary cadets. The rifle cleaning detail registered disgust. The Colonel and Lieutenant Colonel scrubbed pots. 255 Holbrook and Fields held the spotlight at introductions of moguls in Student Govern- ment assembly. Between classes bull sessions were popular. STUDENT LIFE Student life really began in Sep- tember when the frosh and the termites came out of the woodwork and made a mass attack on the campus. No sooner had the frosh settled down than football season began, interrupted by Thanks- giving and the holiday dances, sprinkled with a few classes here and there. The next big affair was O.D.K ' s capping of Lord Halifax, followed by basketball and boxing seasons, and a midwinter drive for bundles, books, money and everything else conceivable tor defense. Through all of this the ROTC program could be heard going into high gear. Compulsory super-service by the freshman. 256 Bright lights flamed as College Park lived at night. The SGA collected bundles of paper for defense. The Women ' s League started the " Campus Conscious Drive " with a bang. Hey, Babe! Your slip ' s showing. Something new has been added.
