For that, if for no other reason, democracy will survive ; because life itself would be destroyed if the forces of hate could permanently overcome the p ower of love. . . . For what a man loves, he will give his life. Also man will fight for that which he thinks is right. Thus as long as men are permitted to think freely, they will cling to democracy. In a democracy, one finds universities which offer fact and truth and reason and logic and friendship — foundations upon which to build love and understanding. Ever-present in such institutions are men who, through the years, have built wisely upon just such foundations, and who give their lives to the helping of the generations that follow, that their paths may be made smoother and happier. These men are loved. The University of Maryland during the past year lost two of its warmest friends, Dr. Levin Bowland Broughton and Dr. Charles Brockway Hale. And there are others who are called by circumstances to fight for democracy and the right to think freely. Many of these men have gone from the halls of the Uni- versity to make the supreme sacrifice upon the battlefields of the world. These men are also loved. To the memory of Dr. Broughton and Dr. Hale and to those students who have given their lives in the service of their country and to the students now fighting in the armed forces . , . that the hilt of the sword of today may be turned skyward to become the cross of tomorrow. We, the present students of the University of Maryland, dedicate the fifty-first yearbook. The Terrapin. IN MEMORIAM In memory of those boys whose lives have been given " over there " and to those who will again walk the paths of their beloved Alma Mater, this book is dedicated. We have built no monument to our dead, no insincere scripture has been written for the living; there is only the deep love and gratefulness of the friends they left behind.

During this period of a quarter of a century, the Maryland Graduate School has trained many Graduate School Council hundreds of students for success in the research, commercial, and teaching fields. In spite of a reduced faculty and greater teaching load, the Graduate School, under the direction of Dean Charles O. Appleman, continued to offer advanced training to those young men and women who sought work towards the masters and doctor of philosophy degrees.

Some of those that have been able to remain have completed their work in three years or less. However, many others have left us to join their country ' s call to the armed services. Nevertheless, student life has continued despite the many changes, and all of us look forward to the time when we will again have those peacetime bull sessions, formal dances, and the fraternity and sorority life of pre-war college days. 17 JSmy J! ' ' ' College of Agriculture THE College of Agriculture plans to train young men and women for agricultural and related occupations, and to conduct systematic investigations on projects of importance to agricultural interests. The curricula is divided into Technical, Scientific, and Special fields. Now, more than ever before, great demands are being made on the American farmer, for not only is he called upon to feed his own country but also to help supply the many Allied armies with necessary foods. The College of Agriculture has strived to aid in every way possible in the war effort throughout Maryland. m, Dean T. B. Symons Assistant Dean Harold F. Cotterman 18 College of Agriculture Samuel B.

College of Arts and Sciences THE College of Arts and Sciences provides an opportunity for a liberal education, and offers instruction in courses that provide basic training for professional and vocational careers. During the last school year, the Col- lege played an important part in pro- viding instruction in the courses re- quired under the Army Specialized Training Program and Foreign Area and Language Programs. The English, Modern Language, Mathematics, Phy- sics, Chemistry, History, and Political Science departments were particularly active in these curricula. A large number of the faculty mem- bers are engaged in war work or in ac- tivities closely related to the war effort. The College continued to maintain a high standard of achievement in the Acting Dean J. Freeman Pyle courses offered for pre-medical, pre- dental, pre-nursing, and pre-law stu- dents. Also, the Physics Department was greatly expanded to meet the de- mands of the Army Specialized Train- ing Program. 20 College of Arts and Sciences Gladys M. Allen Salisbury, Md. B.S.

Freeman Pyle THE College of Business and Public Administration offers training in business management, public adminis- tration, economics, marketing, person- nel, finance, taxation, accounting, for- eign service, natural resources, and other related fields of activity. The re- duced civilian registration made neces- sary a reduction in the number of elec- tives offered, but all required courses and enough electives are offered so that a student can meet the requirements for his degree and secure a fair degree of concentration in some special field. The College entered fully into the war activities of the University during the last school year. Courses were of- fered in the Language and Area Pro- gram and in the basic engineering cur- riculum under the Army Specialized Training Program. Plans are already being laid for the post-war period when a greatly in- creased demand on both the under- graduate and graduate levels is ex- pected. 27 College of Business and Leslie E.

College of Education WHILE " business as usual " has been impossible during wartime, the program of the College of Education has continued to move ahead. For example, the past year saw the intro- duction of a series of student assem- blies, planned and administered by the Education students themselves. At these social and professional meetings, undergraduates have had a new oppor- tunity to become acquainted with one another and with the faculty. Another innovation has been the Reading Clinic, a service offering skilled direction and technical help to students who wish to correct reading deficiencies or to improve their reading skills. Alert to inevitable post-war prob- Acting Dean Arnold E. Joyal lems, the College is preparing now for a greater and richer service to the schools of Maryland and the Nation. 30 College of Education Vernon Norman Albrecht Baltimore, Md. B.A. Dorothy R.

Steinberg THE College of Engineering includes the departments of Chemical, Civil , Electrical, and Mechanical engineering in which a student may obtain his Bachelor ' s and Master ' s degrees. The principal objective of the col- lege during the present emergency is to provide the professional engineers needed to design and construct the tanks, ships, airplanes, and armament necessary for victory. It has been pre- paring men to become officers in the Army and the Navy, and has conducted classes for the men and women through- out the State of Maryland for war in- dustries to expedite production. In addition, the College has utilized its facilities to train enlisted men in the Army Specialized Training Program; has trained pilots for the Army and the Navy; inspectors for aircraft factories, and safety engineers for industrial plants; and its faculty has carried on research of great value in the war effort. 33 College of Engineering Ralph Weaver Bromley Washington, DC.

College of Home Economics Dean Marie Mount THE College of Home Economics endeavors to prepare its students for homemaking as well as for work in professional fields. The latter is espe- cially important, since Home Eco- nomics trained women are vital today in our defense industries. Because of wartime demands, the college has laid emphasis on its course work, on con- servation of food and some supplies, and the renovation and care of clothing and home furnishings. After reaching their junior year, students elect a major from General Home Economics, Home Economics Education, Textiles and Clothing, Practical Art, Extension, Institutional Management, or Foods and Nutrition. The College of Home Economics also maintains a home management house in which senior girls gain practical ex- perience in the manifold problems of running a home. 39 College of Home Economics Dorothy A.

Clifford THE vital need for trained nurses, both at home and abroad, has pro- vided an inspiration to the young wo- men of America to offer themselves for a work which will contribute much toward making the world a better place in which to live. This has been reflected by a greatly increased enroll- ment in the beginning classes at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. The accelerated course now being offered by the Maryland School of Nursing will not limit the student ' s opportunities for a successful career in a post-war world. The valuable expe- rience which is gained through contact with the Navy Nursing Corps should prove a fine supplement to the work in the nursing school. Nurses who join the corps do not feel they are making a sacrifice, for their only desire is to reinforce the courage of the men who are giving everything to preserve our nation. 43 Alice Margaret Elste Baltimore, Md.

The Student Victory Council was formed to unite the students in their work toward working for that goal of peace. Several organizations were forced to become inactive because of the wartime depletion in membership, but those that did continue activities worked hard to keep going until the time when things could again be done on the larger scale of pre-war " Maryland " days. 47 Student Board HEADED by Frannie Pfeiffer, the first woman chairman, and by Roland Adams, who took over at the start of the winter quarter, the Student Board, the link between the student body and the administration of the University, strove to increase school spirit and to bring about a closer re- lationship between civilians and the A.S.T.P. by sponsoring numerous drives and social affairs on the wartime campus. A backward glance over the past year reveals that the Student Board was extremely active. Its accomplish- ments included weekly dances and com- munity sings for both civilians and soldiers; the second Autumn Carnival, which was highlighted by a Black and Gold Ball in the Coliseum ; the clean-up campaign headed by Phyllis Palmer; the Red Cross drive under Roland Adams ; and a student assembly held in the Coliseum at which Theodore Mc- Keldin, mayor of Baltimore, was the principal speaker. The Student Board discusses campus problems.

Presidents for the year included Ruth Buchanan and Bob Bishton. Among activities sponsored by the Council was the Community War Fund drive which netted $1,500. During the first Blood Donor Drive, 443 pints of blood were donated by the students and the second drive yielded still more. Twelve cases of cigarettes were sent overseas as a result of the " " Smokes for the Yanks " drive held during the fall quarter. The biggest success was the War Bond drive which secured $400,- 000 worth of Bonds to buy a Fairchild Trainer. First row: Coseboom, Bishton, Snyder, Falk.

Publications Board THE Publications Board, which is composed of five members of the faculty, the editors of the various stu- dent publications, and the president of Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary journalism fraternity; the Student Board and the Women ' s League, continued to serve Maryland publications in an advisory capacity. The Board members met regularly during the year to pass on new appointments for the various pub- lications and to decide other matters of policy and management. Two fac- ulty members of the Board served the publications directly as advisors. Faculty members during the year included Acting Dean of Men James H. Reid, who served as chairman; Adele Stamp, Dean of Women; Dr. Charles B. Hale, chairman of the De- partment of English; Dr. Charles E. White, of the Department of Chemis- try; and O. R. Carrington, of the De- partment of Publications. Look what Santa brought us! W ' si ! . lit ' ,, ---- . JK 51 Martha Ann Cotterman Editor-in - Chief Terrapin EVEN with photographer difficulties, advanced deadlines, and a budget reduced to a shoestring, the women staff members of the 1944 yearbook dis- proved the statement that this is a man ' s world and carried on the Terra- pin tradition in top order. Changes] had to be made in every direction. Even the office was moved from its former position to rooms once occupied by the Old Line and Diamond- back. More than ever before the Ter- rapin portrayed a year of activities on a wartime campus. Editor-in-Chief Martha Ann Cotter- man missed sleep and classes to keep appointments and meet deadlines ; Bus- iness Manager Barbara Kephart defied tradition and proved that a woman can really balance a budget; Women ' s Edi- tor Lovie McDonnell did a sterling job Barbara Kephart Business Manager Eleanor Jenkins Managing Editor Elinor McDonnell Women ' s Editor 52 of looking after many pages of copy; Managing Editor Betty Jenkins han- dled layout and pictures like a veteran; and Sammy Brooks, the only male on the staff, contributed many fine pic- tures. Under the helpful guidance and watchful eye of Mr. Carrington the whole staff worked hard until that final deadline was met and the book went to press. In addition to Mr. Carrington ' s in- valuable aid we are indebted to Harry P. Lavelle of the Thomsen-Ellis-Hut- ton Co., Mr. Paul Love of Advertisers Engraving Co., and Mr. Joseph Young and Mr. Sidney Bayne of the Guild Photographers.

Diamondback There ' s a war on " says your Dia- mondback through its continual publicity of war bond, blood donor, and Red Cross Fund drives. But, behind the scenes of the newspaper, a rapid transition was being made from peace- time to wartime operations. Publica- tion was temporarily interrupted when the quarter system went into effect in July. Jackie Brophy, the first woman Edi- in-Chief in the history of the paper, took over in the summer quarter with a handful of writers. War conditions restricted publications to once a week instead of the former twice a week. The members of the A.S.T.P. took over the back page under the title of the ' ' Gig Sheet. ' ' Columns such as ' " Mourn- ing Report " and " Military Slant " Jacqueline Brophy Editor, Summer Quarter Leslie Bailey Editor, Fall Quarter Donald Everson Editor, Spring Quarter 54 helped add spice to the sheet as well as to bring news of the A.S.T. ' s activities on campus. Other columns which be- gan in the fall quarter included " Dead- line Drivel " written by Russ Schu- macher until his graduation in March when Arthur McDearmon took over. " Serving Uncle Sam " brought news of former University of Maryland stu- dents now in the armed forces. Les Bailey, Editor-in-Chief during the fall quarter, graduated in Decem- ber and the third editor of the year, Don Everson, took over the top job. " Campus Candids " sprang up in the first issue of 1944 and alumni news be- came a definite part of the paper. Throughout the year the Diamond- back and the Student Board coordi- nated their work and supported one another on every project either started. The 1943-44 Diamondback continued its policy of presenting the facts despite the wartime difficulties constantly aris- ing on a wartime campus.

The need for the booklet was announced a couple weeks before the end of the sum- mer quarter, and Russ Schumacher took over the job of organizing a staff and having the book ready in printed form for the newly-arriving freshpnen. Russ was lucky to gather personnel with experience in publication work. Don Everson, as Managing Editor, had valuable contacts and knowledge of the printing business. Bob Spence and Jane Gambrill had experience on the Diamondback. Art OKeefe had worked on the Old Line. Janet Lingle was our typist and a loyal office worker. After several all night sessions and in spite of exam week, the book was ready for the printers. The mid-semes- ter holidays were broken up by fre- quent trips to the printer and at last the book appeared at a freshman rally in record time. Its purpose was to pre- sent an over-all survey of the campus to beginning students.

Old Line Network A MEMBER of the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, the Old Line Network was one of the few col- lege networks in the country to con- tinue activities during the year. Musi- cal programs ran the gammut from " Cats Heaven with Evans " to the more seri- ous classical programs. Campus news, Round Table discussions, and inter- views were also on schedule. Charles Mears headed the network and Dave Hill was Technical Advisor. Henry Fricke, Publicity Manager, Lu- cille Stringer, Head of the Business Staff, Jim Stapp, Chief Announcer, and Lovie McDonnell, Head of Script Writing, all deserved praise for the fine work accomplished. You re on the air! 57 Edith Simmons and John Stuntz, presidents during the year. ALTHOUGH working under extreme jTx. difficulties this year, the Foot- light Club managed to maintain the theatre tradition that " the show must go on. " Credit goes to Edith Simmons who piloted the club through several successful shows. The summer quarter was bright- ened by a production of Gertrude Footlight Club Tonkonogh ' s " Three Cornered Moon. " Bobbie McKee played her first lead in the part of Elizabeth Rimplegar and Ben Williamowsky added the " so they lived happily ever after " note in his role as Dr. Stevens. This was the last production directed by Dr. Hale. The next performance of the year was Sidney Howard ' s " The Silver Cord. " Roberta Kells, in her last per- formance before graduation, gave us something to remember her by with her splendid portrayal of Mrs. Phelps. Mr. McCollom, of the English Department did a fine job of directing.

The various stage crews, headed by Jack Frost, also deserved a hand for the fine work accomplished in securing props and preparing scenery and drops for the various productions. In February the club went under the sponsorship of the Speech Department. This collaboration has resulted in great plans for the future of dramatics on the Maryland campus.

The Student Musical Activities Committee serves as the advisory group for campus musical organizations at Mary- land. Among the committees ' more important duties is to budget the finances for the musical groups. Irene Fredrick- son served as president, and Professor Harlan Randall was faculty advisor. Clef and Key, guided by President Marsh Steiding, held regular meetings this year even though the continuation of further productions was temporarily ceased. However, the organization laid plans for the future when it will be again possible to present its popular operettas and Varsity Shows. Clef and Key First row: Randall, Pitt- man.

The orchestra was under the direction of Harlan Randall who was assisted by Joseph M. Powers. Membership in the organization was greatly increased this year as was re- vealed in the December concert held in the Agriculture auditorium. The or- chestra numbered almost forty mem- bers who worked hard and contributed to make the concert a great success. Concerts were also presented on cam- pus regularly each quarter. In addi- tion, the orchestra furnished the music for several teas and receptions, and was an important part of the graduation day programs. Civilian men and women students, as well as members of the Army Spe- cialized Training, were included in the group. By becoming a part of the Con- cert Orchestra, members enjoyed the advantages of securing further practice and instruction in playing their own particular instruments in addition to becoming better acquainted with other students and A.S.T.P. whose interests centered about the same field. During this year Bill Holliday worked hard as president to guide the group ' s activities. He was assisted by the Vice-President, Bill Mickey; Secretary, Lois Walker; and Treasurer, Barbara Mumford. 61 First row: Hathaway, Evans, Atkinson, Fredrickson, Pruitt, Randall, Froehlich, Schellhas, MacLeod.

Women ' s Chorus THE increased interest in musical activities this year on the Mary- land campus was evidenced by the growth in membership and the great success of the many repertoires pre- sented by the Women ' s Chorus. Under the guidance and leadership of Profes- sor Harlan Randall the group not only entertained on campus but also at many nearby communities in spite of wartime transportation difficulties. The chorus contributed its part to- ward National Defense when it sang for the servicemen at the United Serv- ice Organizations at Laurel and at An- napolis. One of the most interesting trips was the visit to the Stage Door Canteen in Washington. We all remember the successful Christmas party that was held in the New Gym Armory just before the holi- days. In addition to the presentation of many well-known carols, there was a community sing in which the civilian students, as well as the members of the Army Specialized Training Program took part. Later in the school year, the group presented several other equally well-attended community sings. Heading the Women ' s Chorus in its many activities was President Irene Fredrickson, who was assisted by Vice-President Betty Atkinson; Secre- tary Ramona Randall; and Treasurer Vivian Pruitt. 62 Riding Club First row: Rogers, Bowles, Fusselbaugh, Arps, Bowie, Robberson. Second row: Graham, Wunder, Shields, Dowries, Neish. For those interested in horsemanship and the finer points of riding the Riding Club furnished many interesting activities.

Guided by President Jerry Williams, the Women ' s Recrea- tion Association continued to work for the betterment of women ' s athletics on the Maryland campus. Among the activi- ties sponsored were after-dinner dances for servicemen, a hockey sports day, and managing and officiating at intramural basketball and volleyball tournaments.

Several found it necessary to cease activity until the time when their ranks could again be filled. In some cases scho- lastic requirements had to be altered, since the new quarter system found students graduating so quickly. With these honorary fraternities that carried on, everything was done to maintain their high standing, and activities continued with an eye toward the war effort. 73 Omicron Delta Kappa SIGMA CIRCLE Honorary Leadership Fraternity Founded at WASHINGTON AND LEE UNIVERSITY in 1914 Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1927 JSL ' m T OMICRON Delta Kappa, national honorary leadership fraternity for men, was faced this year with a problem which threatened its very ex- istence on campus. Departure of prac- tically all active members hardly left a nucleus with which to carry on the functions of the fraternity. Also, the depletion of the University ' s male en- rollment threatened to seriously cur- tail or eliminate the source of future qualified members. Meeting early in July, the remaining members agreed that, should all the student members graduate or be drafted, responsibility for carrying on the func- tions of the society would rest with the four active faculty members: Dean James Reid, Professor Russell Allen, Dr. Ronald Bamford, and Dr. William Kemp. It was also decided that even if it cost membership, future members of the fraternity would be tapped on the basis of pre-war standards of leadership. Members: Leslie E.

Mortar Board Senior Women ' s Honorary Society Founded at SWARTHMORE COLLEGE in 1918 Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1934 MORTAR Board, national honor so- ciety for senior college women, is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon any University of Maryland woman. Qualifications for membership are outstanding scholarship, leadership, and service. Although one of the smallest honor- ary organizations on campus, it is also one of the most active. This year Mor- tar Board sponsored after-dinner dances for the civilian and A.S.T.P. students. Interesting lectures were also given by representatives of the Nurses Cadet Corps, and the Marines. Other pro- jects of the year included the tradi- tional " Smarty Party " for all sopho- more women with a z.j average or bet- ter, a chrysanthemum " sale " at home- coming. Charm talks, and a vocational bookshel f for women students . Because of the accelerated program of the University, it was necessary for Mortar Board to conduct three tap- ping ceremonies, one in September, one at the Christmas Sing, and another on May Day. Janet Andrea headed the group in the fall, while Marilyn Henderson took over in the winter and spring. Dr. Benton, Dr. Bamford, Dr. Weeks, Miss Leslie, and Miss Stamp served as ad- visors for the honorary.

The fraternity took definite steps to- ward setting up a program for the bet- terment of student publication on the Maryland campus. While the elaborate publications ban- quet was dispensed with this year, an impressive initiation dinner was held at the Terrapin Inn. Other events in- cluded a memorable initiation at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house as well as a Christmas party in the Terrapin office. Members: Janet Andreae, Stanley .A.srael.

The society does not attempt to take the place of any organized theatrical group on campus, but simply provides a reward for achieve- ments in the dramatic field. Representing the best in local the- atrical talent, the requirements for membership in the honorary are neces- sarily strict. Students are tapped for the Footlight Club, Clef and Key, and Opera Club. This is necessary to ac- ' quire points for membership and the thespians must act, work on props, help build sets, and have a finger in almost every phase of the theatre in order to earn their points. A prospec- tive actor must have taken several minor parts or two leading parts com- bined with a minor. The biggest thrill for any actor or actress at Maryland is to receive the white carnation at the intermission in- dicating that they are worthyof member- ship in Alpha Psi Omega. Every year the honorary gives a party for the members of the Footlight Club and presents an award to the individual who has given the best performance of the year at the University. Plans for the future include continued help to actors and playwriters on cam- pus. The playwriting contests of some years ago will be renewed with the hope of discovering new talent at the Uni- versity and it is planned to bring in speakers from other dramatic groups to talk on theatre problems. Members: Roberta Kells, Edith Simmons, John Stuntz. 77 First row: Currin, Fell, Goodstein. Second row: McAnallen, Staffel. Phi Kappa Phi Honorary Scholarship Fraternity Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF MAINE in 1897 Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1920 MEMBERSHIP to Phi Kappa Phi, scholastic honorary, is the goal of many a senior. The basic ideals in- include excellent scholarship and de- velopment of character. For a senior to attain membership, he must be in the upper ten per cent of his respective college. Since the Uni- versity has changed to the quarter sys- tem, it has been necessary to tap every quarter in order to include all seniors eligible. Graduate students may be recommended for tapping by faculty members of the organization. To promote Phi Kappa Phi ' s aims and in order to produce incentive to- wards further achievements in grad- uate work, several fellowships are offered each year.

The averages are selected from the upper one-fourth of the students having junior rating. The chapter selects from these lists, not over fifteen per cent of those having senior rating and not over five per cent of those having junior rating. Following a tradition of long stand- ing each year Omicron Nu presents an award to the freshman girl in the Col- lege of Home Economics who has the highest scholastic average.

Homecoming 1943. Hillel Service. SPORTS A7iD MILir ART lJports and military training were still to continue this year despite the low ebb in the number of participants. Boys were trained in ROTC to prepare them for the real battle they were to fight later on for their country. Intercollegiate football, basketball and boxing were the same as ever with the games and matches still spurred on by student cheers. Other sports continued in the form of intramurals, but the spirit remained high and the compe- tition keen. 87 Physical Education Program Dr. Spears WITH the establ ishmentof the Army Specialized Training Program at the various universities throughout the country, the Government laid down specific requirements for the physical training of these men. Since all of t he A.S.T.P. were to be put through this pro- gram and the civilian students who were physically fit would be entering the service in the immediate future, it was decided that no distinction be made between these two groups in physical training. The physical education program at the University of Maryland was set up under the direct supervision of Dr. Clarence W. Spears, who brought in a number of outstanding instructors to take care of various phases of the work. All men were required to take six hours of physical education a week. Part of this time was devoted to calisthenics and the rest in a program consisting mainly of competitive sports. In addi- tion, all civilian students who were unable to participate in regular physi- cal training were placed in adaptive work and given exercises suitable to their capacity. Supplementary to this compulsory program, volunteer intramural sports were offered. There was touch football, basketball, and boxing in the winter quarter for both the civilian students and members of the Army Specialized Training. Teams were organized among the fraternities as well as among the non-resident students and the two leagues participated extensively in the program. Out of 450 civilian students 280 took part in the physical education program. During the spring quarter the pro- gram was conducted along the same basis and each man was again allowed to make his choice of the sport in which he wished to take part. Gym work, cor- rective exercises, tennis, baseball, track, and football were offered. All sport activities were organized on a competi- tive basis and the men were trained and organized into teams which played a regular schedule. Male students keep physically fit. Since the University did not support the intercollegiate sports program this spring, it was felt that many men who had never been out for a varsity sport would benefit from this opportunity to take part in a competitive sport and learn fundamentals under a coach. Dr. Spears and his staff deserve much credit for the fine showing made. The program more than measured up to the requirements of the A.S.T.P. and offered countless opportunities for un- covering latent athletic ability among the male students. Plenty of punch! Coach Baker gives instructions. 89 Football Coach Spears THE University of Maryland foot- ball team, suffering from a bad case of non-experience, tackled a near all-service schedule and surprisingly enough came up with results that astonished the most ardent of Mary- land followers. Clarence W. Spears, former football mentor at Dartmouth, Wes t Virginia, Minnesota, and Toledo, stepped into the coaching shoes vacated by Clark Shaughnessy last spring and was con- fronted with the job of moulding a Maryland team from 17-year-olds and draft deferments.

The Old Liners raised the curtain on their 1943 campaign at College Park by dropping a close 13-7 decision to the Curtis Bay Coast Guard. The young Terps took command of the sphere at the outset and was definitely the more aggressive team in the first three quar- ters. However, going into the final stanza with a 7-0 lead, the Liners met an entirely different team. The sailors took to the air and in a short time pushed over two rapid-fire touchdowns before the final gun, to finish up on the long end of a 1 3-7 score. In a true storybook ending, the Maryland gridmen defeated the fa- vored Wake Forest Deacons 13-7 in their second home stand. With the score tied at 7-all, and less than ten seconds left to play, Maryland was penalized back to its own 1 1 for an off- side. Quarterback Joe Makar threw a desperate pass that connected with Dick Tuschak on the 25. Dick did as neat a performance of broken field run- ning as Byrd Stadium ever witnessed, galloping 7 yards down the sidelines for a touchdown as the referee ' s gun signed finis to one of the most spectacu- lar football finishes in the country. This play was given honorable mention in a poll to determine the " most talked about play of the year. " Maryland continued at a high pitch for their next game with the Richmond Army Air Base, and as a result played flawless ground and air ball, shoving over three first half touchdowns to 91 Bill Pironnello picking up yardage against Penn State. rumble over the Thunderbirds by the score of 19-6. The Liners ' attack failed to sustain its first half momentum, but as Mary- land bogged down on offense they perked up on defense and turned back every serious threat to their lead by the flyers. Doc Spears, returning to West Vir- ginia University where he created a golden era of football for the Moun- taineers during his four years ' stay as grid mentor, saw his Old Liners become the victim of a freak play and lose a heartbreaking 6-2 measure at Morgan- town. Buddy Pike, West Virginia fresh- man, came rushing in on Joe Makar who was attempting to get off a pass on the rain-soaked turf, and scooping up the soggy ball at shoe-top level as it slipped out of the Marylander ' s hands, ran unmolested for a touchdown. The Liners ' only score came as a Moun- taineer back fumbled and jumped on the ball in the end zone for a safety. The Old Liners reached far out of their class when they invited a rugged and razzle-dazzle Penn State team to square off on the gridiron. The Marine and Navy studded eleven that housed former college players with senior ex- perience plowed through an outweighted and outclassed Terp line for a 45-0 win. Weakened by the loss of a dozen key operatives, the Marylanders were 92 unable to get past their own 38-yard marker in the first half, and were only able to penetrate to midfield in the second canto. With the taste of defeat still fresh, the Liners journeyed deep in the South to Greenville, South Carolina, to take on the Greenville Army Base. An im- proved and determined Maryland team rolled back home with a well-earned 43-18 win to their credit. Virginia ' s Coach Frank Murray served a much more potent " T " than Coach Spears could concoct down Vir- ginia way, and when the battle smoke had cleared, a young Maryland squad trudged off the field on the very short end of a 39-0 score. The Maryland men fared no better the following Saturday when they visited the Bainbridge Naval Training Station and were met with a galaxy of former professional and col- lege football stars who took turns in crossing the Terp goal line to the tune of a 46-0 count. The Maryland gridders concluded their season on a sweet note by trounc- ing the Virginia Military Institute 21-24 in a Turkey Day event in Roa- noke. The Old Liners played one of their best ground games of the season as they outrushed the Keydets by the overwhelming figures of 2,557 yards to 85 yards. The Terps put together three touchdowns and a safety for the margin of victory, ringing down the curtain on a season of four wins and five defeats. Maryland line holds Bainbridge for no gain. 93 Basketball Coach Burton Shipley VETERAN coach Burton Shipley thought he would never see the day when seventeen-year-olds would grace an Old Line varsity quintet, but with the loss of all but one of his letter- men, the court mentor had little choice. TheMarylanders tested their strength by scheduling three games before the mid-year holidays with the Quantico Marines, Marshall College, and Bain- bridge Naval Training Station. The result was three alarming set-backs, and a display of the team ' s weak points. Following vacation the Liners sus- tained one bad break after another, the most serious being the loss of Ship- ley who fractured both of his legs early in the season. Lacrosse coach Al Heagy took over the court duties and within a week produced Maryland ' s first win — a 43-36 triumph over V.M.I. Despite repeated turnbacks, the Terps bounded back to pull out one of the major upsets of the season in edging out Catholic University, leading con- tender in the Mason-Dixon Conference, by the score of 33-31 in as exciting a First row: Green, Kiski, William- owski, Acito.

After being dropped to the depths of despair by Virginia ' s 49-36 win, the Liner ' s registered an impressive 48-26 victory over the star-studded Woodrow Wilson General Hospital five at Col- lege Park. On the last leg of its southern road trip, Maryland secured its fourth and final win of the season by tripping V.M.I, again, 31-29. Navy and Army rounded off the bumpy campaign by pounding out lopsided home wins. The Tars defeated the College Parkers 69- 35 at Annapolis; while Army ' s unde- feated cage team broke all individual and team scoring records at West Point in walloping the hapless Liners 85-22. Fennel recaptures the ball for Maryland. 95 Boxing 1 LAHi Coach Fausto Rubini THE ever-tightening noose of war- time restrictions left the Uni- versity as the only college in the state to carry on intercollegiate boxing. This placed a great responsibility upon the new coach, Fausto Rubini, especially in view of the fact that he had only one letterman, Alex Bobenko, who proved a great fighter and completed the season undefeated. Ed Gauvin took over boxing duties in the difficult 120-pound class, and Bill Coakley showed promise in the 127-pound class. Sixteen-year-old Ray Hanbury came through with two knockouts to his credit while Vic Ber- man produced a neat record in the 145- pound class. Sid Sterman, the Old Liner ' s " hard luck boy, " kept the 165- pound class well protected, while slug- ging Frank Doory, whose fights were a favorite with the crowd, had an out- standing record. Burly Danny Marc- Witz took the measure of the heavy- weights in the unlimited class. After the mid-year holidays, the Old Liners came through with a 4 to 3 win over Army in the initial match at First tow: Gauvin, Coakley, Hanbury, Berman, Coach Rubini, Bobenko, Sterman, Zetts.

This was followed by a match at Chapel Hill which ended 6-2 with the Tarheels on top. Returning to College Park the Marylanders mauled an outclassed Penn State team 6-2 and a week later scored over Army by 4 to 2 at West Point. Rubini next took his ringmen to Madison to engage the much touted Victory in the balance. University of Wisconsin Badgers who won by the close score of 4)4 to 3 . Maryland closed the season at home with a match with the strong Coast Guard Academy. Although the match was lost by the close margin of 4 2 to 3 , the Old Liners feel that as a whole the year was extremely satisfying and successful . Win, lose, or draw. 97 Wo m e n ' s Intramurals Dr. Benton Women ' s intramurals are directed by the Women ' s Recreation As- sociation under the sponsorship of the Department of Physical Education for Women. With the cooperation of day- dodgers, dormitory, and sorority mem- bers, recreational activities continued to flourish on campus in spite of the wartime restrictions. A complete and well rounded program of athletic ac- tivities were presented for the Mary- land coeds, and all the familiar sports featured were enthusiastically accepted by the girls. Each sport is managed by a different member of the Women ' s Recreation Association board and her assistant. A sports representative from each house of residence cooperates with the manager in organizing and carrying through tournament competition. Teams are made up from girls in the various houses as well as members of the numerous classes offered in Physi- cal Education. Fall activities included inter-class hockey, inter-house bowling, and in- dividual competition in archery. Dur- ing the winter season inter-house and Sport and spectators. 98 Preparing for the modern dance exhibition. inter-class basketball was offered. The spring quarter presented inter-house volleyball and individual competition in archery, tennis, and badminton.

The Intramural season closed with the awarding of a letter " M " to those who participated in light sports. Six pins! The tip-off. 99 Military ROTC Col. Harlan Griswold A s our country moved into the second year of a great war, drastic changes occurred in the military program of the University. ROTC commissions were eliminated, and the Army Specialized Training Program was introduced. Civilian military training was made compulsory for all male students, and in the place of the carefree ROTC of peacetime days, a highly disciplined organization de- veloped. To the military department was left perhaps the greatest responsi- bility on campus. Because of the neces- sity for the development of men stu- dents at the University into subjects fit for army training and also on ac- First row: Captain Dunlap, Major Cassell, Colonel Griswold, Captain H.

Third row: Lieutenant Waddell, Captain Bohler, Captain Hendrickson, Lieutenant Yourman, Lieutenant Yeager. 100 COMPANY A count of the great depletion in the ranks of the civilian students, the Maryland ROTC regiment had to work hard to contribute its part to national defense. Three companies composed the ROTC battalion, making it one of the smallest units in the history of the military department at Maryland. This was offset, however, by an intensified interest in drill, and the result far sur- passed expectations. The highly suc- cessful night maneuvers were made as realistic as possible by the participa- tion of several light tanks from Fort George G. Meade. During the summer quarter Col. Harland Griswold suc- ceeded Col. Robert Wysor as com- mander, and Major John Cassell headed the ROTC under him. The ROTC COMPANY B faglj 4 k Ai .».

However, through the cooperation of Colonel Griswold and the Military Department, mu- sicians in the Army Specialized Train- ing Program at the University were permitted to join the University band. Although participation was optional, the members of the A.S.T.P. turned out in such large numbers that the band was restored to its pre-war size. During the summer the band fur- nished music for the drill periods on Tuesdays and Thursdays of the ROTC and A.S.T.P. battalions respectively. The band was also on hand for either a review or a troop parade almost every Thursday. Many of these were in honor of visiting military dignitaries. Running close competition with the first company, the band placed second when the ROTC had its quarterly com- pany competition. This was the first time in the band ' s history that it has received an award of this type. Besides playing for reviews and drill periods the band, under the able direc- tion of Master Otto Seibeneichen, played at numerous football games, basketball games, and boxing matches, which helped immeasurably in main- taining school spirit. 103 The New Armory.

Headquarters Detachment. 104 Army Speciali2;ed Training Program THIS war is different from the one in which our fathers fought since it is fast moving and specialized to a high degree; the average soldier cannot handle the complicated machines of war without a great deal of training. This primarily is the reason why the Army Specialized Training Program was organized. The A.S.T.P. embraces two basic courses as well as some about which the civilian world knows nothing. Engineering and languages are the principle schedules offered by this pro- gram which has as its purpose the train- ing of men in highly specialized fields so that competent soldiers may be on call to any technical job on our fighting fronts over the world. Under the able guidance of Colonel Griswold and his staff, this program has proved extremely successful during the past year. During the summer quarter, Col . Har- land Griswold organized the A.S.T.P. men into four companies which moved into all available buildings on the cam- pus. Capt. George Dunlap, Capt. COMPANY A 105 COMPANY B Robert Walden, Capt. John Smith, and Capt. James Pinkerton commanded companies A, B, C, and D respectively. Physical training and an intensive intramural sports program was sched- uled for the student-soldiers along with their basic Engineering and Language courses. The A.S.T. trainees easily fell into the routine of Maryland college life, taking over a page of the Diamond- back, wearing paths to the sorority houses and the women ' s dormitories, and sponsoring one of the biggest dances of the year, the " KoUege ' n COMPANY C 106 COMPANY D Kacki " Ball, in the New Armory.

It looked strange at first to see their former houses occupied by girls. However, most of the work had to be accomplished by the sororities, whose memberships were as high as ever. It really seemed like a women ' s world, but the girls have continued to keep up the pace until the boys come home to take over again. 13 Inter fraternity Council COMPOSED of two representatives from each of the fraternities on the campus, the Interfraternity Coun- cil has constantly striven to keep a har- monious relationship between the fra- ternities and has worked cooperatively in behalf of the fraternities and the University. The present war conditions and the part they have played in painting a dark picture for fraternities, have sub- sequently increased the problems that arose, such as revising the rush rules to meet the needs of the fraternities and the University during wartime. The annual Interfraternity Ball was held this year in conjunction with the annual dance of the Pan-Hellenic Coun- cil. The dance was held in the Women ' s Field House, and hot and sweet music for the occasion was provided by Chuck Gordon.

The war neither extinguished nor dimmed the lighted S.A.M. octagon on the red brick house atop Knox Road. With only eighteen actives during the year, the fraternity led first by Ray Kalven and later by Paul Pum- pian, continued to stand high in schol- arship, social activities and athletics. Members were represented in various campus projects, such as publications, musical organizations and Hillel Foun- dation. The house became a virtual service center on week-ends for visiting broth- ers who cherish memories of times spent on the Maryland campus. Members: Rolf Bercowitz, Leonard Berman, Robert Borenstein, David Broad, Donald Cohen, Melvin S. Cohen, Raymond Kalvan, Norman Katz, Gilbert Levine, Richard H.

Paii ' -Hellenic Council THE Pan-Hellenic Council continued its policy of promoting good fel- lowship among the sisters in the ten sororities on campus. This was main- tained by holding monthly meetings at various sorority houses in order to dis- cuss problems confronting the Greek organizations. One of the most impor- tant projects accomplished this year was the revision of the Pan-Hellenic Constitution to fit the new wartime quarter plan at the University. The Council served as a mediator during rushing, saw that rushing regu- lations were maintained, and subjected offenders to specific penalties. Other activities included getting the sorori- ties on campus to cooperate with the Red Cross, Blood Donor and War Bond drives which did much to put these projects " over the top. " Officers for the year were; Barbara Kephart, President; Helen Biesecker, Vice-President; Betty Monocrusos, Sec- retary; and Irene Fredrickson, Treas- urer. First row: Molden, Smith, Richards.

BETA Phi chapter of Alpha Delta Pi enjoyed another year of varied activities and leadership on the Mary- land campus. A " Red Sock " party introduced the fall season of social events for all A.D. Pi ' s on campus. Following this, the annual pledge formal proved to be one of the year ' s highlights, and featured an all-girl orchestra from Washington. Pajama parties proved very popular all year-round. At one, Bobbie Bur- dette caused not a little excitement when she made an extensive tour of the house while sleep-walking. The A.D. Pi ' s, with the assistance of the A.S.T. ' s, transformed the unused basement of the chapter house into a very adequate recreation room — with furniture and everything. The Christmas party, well remem- bered because of the frequent fuse- blowing, was a great success. The Yuletide spirit carried over to Christ- mas Eve for the marriage of Mable Klebold at the chapter house. The A.D. Pi ' s again kept up their tradition of serving refreshments to the partici- pants of the University Caroling Serv- ice during the holiday season. Alpha Delta Pi was well represented by competent teams in all the inter- sorority tournaments, and by numer- ous members in both W.R.A. and Sigma Tau Epsilon. Turning to the more serious side of college and scholarship, Betty Beggs was initiated into Alpha Lambda Delta, while Mildred Whitlow made Omicron Nu. The various Blood Banks and War Bond drives were enthusiastically sup- ported by the A.D. Pi ' s. This together with keeping up the morale of the Uni- versity in general and members of the A.S.T. in particular provided never a dull moment. 128 Members: Hilda Jane Adams, Violet Beebe, Betty Beggs, Meta Lucille Boyd, Roberta Bur- dette, Shirley Byers, Doris Carson, Phyllis Couchman, Lois Crouch, Ruth Dawson, Marcia Erskine, Vera Gatch, Cecile Hale, Catherine MacMorris, Emilie Martinsky, Jean Mc- Comas, Betty Ott, Vera Tompkins, Elizabeth Wallender, Mildred Whitlow.

After a very successful rushing season they settled down to varied ac- tivities, such as dances for the soldiers, a pledge dance, the Spinster Skip, and caroling at Christmas at Glenndale Sanatorium. Marilyn Henderson, Martha Ann Cotterman, Jane Woodring, and Mary- Jane Chase served on Mortar Board. Homecoming Queen Nettie Carman divided her time between being Treas- urer of Women ' s League and President of Kappa. Jane Woodring edited the Maryland Literary Quarterly, and in her spare time attended meetings of Pi Delta Epsilon with President Martha Ann Cotterman, Betty Jenkins and Betty Ring. Omicron Nu members included Jeanne Hovey, Marilyn Henderson, Martha Ann Cotterman and Ann Rev- ell Chadeayne. Polly Day attended her S.A.O. meet- ings while Mary Jane Rodgers, Betty Bowles and Ann Fusselbaugh staffed the Riding Club. Kay Weston drew GAMMA PSI CHAPTER was founded at Monmouth College in 1870 and established at the University of Maryland in 1929. innumerable posters, and the music department was taken care of by Claire Rich ' s violin.

PV 131 r B BETA BETA CHAPTER was founded at Syracuse University in 1874 and established at the University of Maryland in 1940. MORTAR Board honors, Diamond- back participation, and numer- ous social functions highlighted the year for Gamma Phi Beta. President Ruth Startzman, Barbara Nutwell Simmons, Ruth Buchanan, and Ruth Blackwell distinguished them- selves as members of Mortar Board. In addition, Ruth Buchanan was Presi- dent of Women ' s League, Chairman of the Victory Council and helped to christen one of the planes purchased by the students. Bobbie Reed acquired one more honor with her position as Business Manager of the Diamond- back. Mrs. R. D. Hensel, our new house mother, was introduced to the campus at a tea on January 23. The expression " full house " took on a realistic mean- ing during Gamma Phi Beta Week when Gamma Phis from all around came to help celebrate. Recollections of the past year will al- ways include Joyce Murdock ' s rhumba technique, Ruth Buchanan and her accordion, and the paper forms of Bobby Rivenburgh and Phyllis Brooks. Ruth Startzman on a pair of crutches was a familiar sight on campus as well as around the house. Footlight props sometimes threatened to overrun the house; however, the daydodgers room could always be counted on as refuge. Entertainment was provided during the Monday night jam sessions and there was never a dull moment.

ONE of the most important steps taken by the Sigma Kappas dur- ing the year was the acquisition of their new home, the former Alpha Tau Omega house. While the brothers are off to the war the Sigma Kappas are making the most of their attractive home, as may be seen from some of the social activities held this year. Starting with an open house tea, at which time Mrs. T. J. Randolph, the new house mother, was presented to the campus, the sorority followed through the year with many social and informal gatherings, such as pajama parties, Sunday night buffet suppers, and in- formal teas to get acquainted wit h nearby chapters. Activities were planned with an eye toward the war effort as well as toward sociability. Dances were given for the members of the A.S.T. on campus, and officers from Fort Meade were invited to the annual Christmas formal. Friday nights found some of the Sigma Kappas helping still more in the war effort by acting as hostesses at the Stage Door Canteen. Sigma Kappa contributed to the Blood Bank, as well as to the many war drives, and ranked second in the campus junk jewelry drive. Our pledges sponsored a drive to supply the men at the Naval Hospital in Washington with assorted kits which not only proved to be extremely useful, but also helped to brighten some servicemen ' s Christmas. Many Sigma Kappas held offices on campus this year. Peggy Carpenter acted as vice-president of the Wesley 134 Club and Lois Walker was secretary of the orchestra. President Betty Mono- crusos, who was secretary of the Pan- Hellenic Council, guided the sorority during the enjoyable and profitable year. Members: Lucille Bowser, Margaret V. Carpen- ter, Elaine Craley, Virginia Gubisch, Norma Hatch, Jean Hofstetter, Florence Hurley, Jean F.

DOTTiE CosEBOOM and Marjorie Falk, vice-chairman and secre- tary respectively of the Student Vic- tory Council made the Tri-Delts doubly conscious of air-raid regulations and blackouts during the past year. In fact they became so conscientious over their jobs that more than once the house was blacked out when the local fire sirens were sounded. In addition to their activities, Dottie was selected to christen one of the three Fairchild Trainer planes purchased through the war bond drive, and Marjorie was in charge of the very successful " Smokes for the Yanks " Drive. Our president, Edith Simmons, served as presiding officer of Footlight Club and Alpha Psi Omega, honorary dra- matic fraternity. In the middle of the year, Louise Owings replaced Jean Rudelius as treasurer of the Footlight Club. Jean, also first vice-chairman of the Student Board, headed the com- mittee for the " Jingle Ball " which was sponsored by that organization. Edith Dunford presided over Mortar Board, Senior Women ' s Honorary Fra- ternity, and Sigma Tau Epsilon, Ath- letic Honorary Fraternity for women. Other activities for the year included an interfraternity sing, sponsored by Tri-Delt, and the winning of the Sigma Kappa trophy which is presented each year to the women ' s group who engage in the largest number of activities spon- sored by the W.R.A.

' " i 137 ASA BETA ETA CHAPTER was founded at Lombard College in 1893 and established at the University of Maryland in 1934. THE Alpha Xi " s plunged headlong into the activities for the year. During the summer they were awarded the coveted Gamma Phi Beta Scholar- ship Cup. The Homecoming Cup for the best house decoration came into their possession in the fall, after Kibby Ray, Ruth Osann, Jane Turner, Nancy Spies, and June Rightor sacrificed a night ' s sleep to achieve this goal. The Junk Jewelry Drive, under the leader- ship of Lou Aiello, was a great success with more than 4,000 pieces collected. Scholarship was stressed through the traditional Steak and Mush dinner which everyone is required to attend so that she may either receive her award or suffer her punishment. The Ice Capades in Washington brought a turn-out of all the girls to watch their sister, Pat Richards, per- form the beautiful figures she does on skates. Kate Schmoll contributed her services to the country by enlisting in the WAVES. This year marked the tenth anni- versary of the founding of Alpha Xi on the Maryland campus. This called for a special celebration for all members — new and old — which was put over in a big way by Dorothy Aiello. June Cameron was elected Women ' s- Member-at-Large and secretary-treas- urer of Women ' s League ; Evelyn Men- dum was tapped by Phi Kappa Phi; Nancy Spies was elected president of Omicron Nu; Virginia Raymond be- came vice-president of Y.W.C.A. ; Lou Aiello was vice-president of the Span- ish Club; and Helen Beisecker was vice-president of Pan-Hel.

AT the head of College Avenue is ji , the red brick mansion with the white columns that is the home of the A. O. Pi ' s. Led by prexy Irene Fred- rickson, who was also president of the Women ' s Chorus and treasurer of the Pan-Hellenic Council, the girls went in for a number of activities. Pat Lass- well, first vice-chairman of the Student Board, conducted various philanthropic projects, such as selling magazine sub- scriptions to raise funds for the support of a department of the Frontier Nur- sing Service and collecting toys and books for the Children ' s Hospital at Christmas. The presidency of Women ' s League and secretaryship of Mortar Board kept Dotty Merkel busy. Jay Andreae, past A.O.Pi president and treasurer of the Pan-Hellenic Council, was elected president of Mortar Board. Jay was also in Pi Delta Epsilon and Phi Kappa Phi and in any good bridge game; only she got her man and left us. " Little Boo " Boswell, who went to Florida for Christmas and came back a luscious tan, held down the offices of secretary- treasurer of the Student Board and vice-president of Mortar Board. ' Vivian Pruitt was on the Student Musical Ac- tivities Committee. Jan Jordan, a transfer from Northwestern University, and " Pete " Peterson were quite musi- cal too, but they specialized in boogie- woogie duets. Kitty Briggs, another transfer but from the Deep South, was society editor of the Diamondback. Susie Randall ' s extra-curricular work led her to Annapolis and she ended up with a Naval Academy miniature. But the main activity participated in by all the girls was letter-writing every night and anxious waiting for the postman at lo o ' clock each morning.

The boy was five-year-old Melvyn Jones, an English refugee, and the papa is the vacat ion house guard. In August the first annual conven- tion of the of Eicers of Alpha Province of Kappa Delta was held at the Mary- land chapter house. The local chapter was given the Progress Award for their accomplishments of the past two years. October found Frannie Pfeiffer the first woman president of the Student Board and Barbara Kephart president of Pan-Hel and business manager of the Terrapin. In January Helen DeLoach followed in roommate Fran- nie ' s footsteps by being elected second vice-chairman of the Student Board. Lovie McDonnell was appointed wo- men ' s editor of the Terrapin; Betsy Hine carried on her cheer leading; and Shirley Armstrong was elected presi- ALPHA RHO CHAPTER was founded at Virginia State Normal School in 1897 and established at the University of Maryland in 1929. dent of the Spanish Club. The K.D. ' s claim they had more fun this year than ever before, and with conditions such as they are, that is a generous statement. We do know that the famous, one and only. Sixteen Club was formed.

' p ' ., ' 4 143 ALPHA MU CHAPTER was founded at Barnard College in 1909 and established at the University of Maryland in 1943. COMPLETING our first year as active Alpha Epsilon Phi members the girls of Alpha Mu have many happy memories to look back on. The highlight of the past year for Alpha Epsilon Phi on the Maryland campus was the crowning of Sister Vivian Smelkinson as War Bond Queen of the 1944 War Bond Contest which was held on the campus in March. Alpha Epsilon Phi led the campus with a total of $153,226. In addition, we pledged a fine group of eighteen girls. Socially the sorority has been in a whirl for the whole twelve months. In the fall we were honored by having our National Dean, Flo Orringer, who visited the chapter house for nearly a week. Later six A. E. Phi ' s from Hunter College visited us in February and we gave a party in their honor which was termed the success of the season. In scholarship Jean Kaplan main- tained the honor of the sorority by being initiated into Sigma Alpha Omi- cron, national honorary bacteriology fraternity; and Estelle Wolowitz rep- resented the sorority in the Footlight Club. The Scrap and the Blood Donor Campaigns had the support of the Alpha Mu ' s. To compare notes with some of our sorority sisters from schools in the New York area, we visited them and were invited to a Tri-Chapter Tea at Hunter College. The Tea was held at the beau- tiful, old Roosevelt House at Hunter College. In addition to celebrating the first anniversary of our membership in Alpha Epsilon Phi, we also celebrated 144 the first anniversary of Mrs. Ruark ' s service with us as house mother.

THE Phi Sigma Sigmas not only maintained their outstanding rec- ord in " all out for victory " efforts, but also added their own " all out for good fun " campaign. High spots among these activities were the annual House Mothers ' Banquet, given for the house mothers of all fraternity and dormitory groups ; open house teas ; and the Coed Canteen, which welcomed the A.S.T.P. men to the University. All was not play for the Phi Sigs, however, as was proven by their earn- ing first place in the jewelry drive, donating blood, topping all sororities in contributions for " Smokes for the Yanks, " knitting for the Red Cross, salvaging scrap, donating $50.00 to the Community Chest Fund, and con- tributing to Phi Sig ' s national cam- paign for the purchase of a clubmobile to be given to the Red Cross. These general projects did not hin- der the individual activities of the girls, for never a week passed without Betsy Weinstein, Betty Barban, Phyllis Wol- pert, Ruth Singer, and Jeanne De La Viez going over to Walter Reed Hos- pital to help cheer the spirits of the boys. Cherie Packman, a fetching nurse ' s aide, did her share at Sibley Hospital, while Evie Stoll and Lucille Stein busied themselves with the A.W.V.S. Betty Barban, Women ' s League Rep- resentative, was instrumental in form- ing the Off-Campus Council, while Lila Berkman worked on Footlight activities. Irene Caplan divided her time between the Diamondback and the Victory Council, and Lynn Raskin was chosen to be a member of the Home- coming Queen ' s Court.
