BROUGHTON To Dr. Levin Bowland Broughton, to whom the Junior Class dedicates this 192 8 annual, the University of Maryland owes much. Coming from a fine old Eastern Shore colonial family of the type that has given the South a unique place in the nation ' s social life. Dr. Broughton entered Maryland Agricultural College in the Fa of 1905. He specialized in chemistry and went to work for the College immediately upon graduation. With the exception of one year and a half spent out of the state in advanced work, he has ever since been in the service of our University. What Dr. Broughton has accomplished for the University of Maryland cannot be told in words, as his has been a service that is written in the hearts of men — a service exemplified in the deeds of hun- dreds who are faithfully serving the State and the Nation.

RossBOURG Inn i MARYLAND HISTORY The history of Maryland forms an integral part of the story of our national growth. First settlements were made in Maryland early in the period of American colonial development; and many of the characters and events outstanding in our national life have been as closely linked with the building of the " Old Line " State. Although the Spaniards were probably the first Europeans to sight Maryland ' s shores, as shown by old records, it remained tor Captain John Smith to make the first visit of any conse- quence and to explore the Chesapeake Bay region. This area, inherited by Cecilius Calvert. Lord Baltimore, was named Maryland in honor of Queen Henrietta Maria. Colonization was begun in 16 34 when some two hundred settlers arrived in the ships " Ark " and " Dove. " establishing themselves at St. Mary ' s on a tributary of the Potomac River. The area about St. Mary ' s was obtained by a treaty with the Indians by Governor Calvert, and today a marble shaft in the old graveyard marks the spot where the transfer occurred. In 1649 the Maryland Assembly passed the famous Act of Toleration, the first act of complete religious toleration to be enacted by any American colony. Maryland had been estab- lished on a sound agricultural basis and consequently steady progress was made. Among the western settlements of the colony Fort Cumberland was an important protection from French and Indian attacks. Large plantations were established and the hospitality of the Maryland planter was heralded far and wide. The Maryland-Pennsylvania boundary was disputed for many years, but the running of Mason and Dixon ' s line between 1763 and 1767 definitely established this border. Maryland men were prominent in the events preceding the Revolutionary War. During the war. Maryland ' s troops proved themselves among the most courageous of the colonial army. The bravery of the " Old Liners " was nowhere more apparent than at the battle of Long Island. August 1776, where some four hundred men of the Maryland battalion made six charges against four thousand of the British, and thus covered the retreat of a large part of General " Washing- ton ' s army. At the close of the war the Annapolis State House was the scene of General " Wash- ington ' s address when he surrendered his commission of commander of the Continental Army. In 1786. after the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation had been shown, a conference of the middle States was called at Annapolis. This convention ' s most important act was to call the convention at Philadelphia in 1787. which gave us our present Federal Constitution. It was during the War of 1812 that Francis Scott Key. a son of Maryland, was inspired to write the " Star Spangled Banner " while watching the British fleet bombard Fort McHenry in Baltimore harbor. In the naval war with Tripoli. Stephen Decatur, another of Maryland ' s sons, brought further honor to his native State. In 1828 the cornerstone of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad — the first American railroad in the modern sense of the word — was laid at Baltimore. During the ensuing years Baltimore rose to become a great national trade center. The swift Baltimore clipper ship, modeled after the Chesapeake Bay craft — the bugeye and log canoe, was found on every sea. Another event of national importance was the opening of the first telegraph line In the world in 1844 between Baltimore and Washington. During the Civil War. Maryland ' s regiments performed with valor. The battles of South Mountain and Antictam were the only major engagements within Maryland ' s borders. Since the Civil War. the story of Maryland ' s growth, with that of the other States of the Union, has been more closely than ever interwoven with the narrative of national development. During the Great War her divisions won many glories. Today the " Old Line " is especially noted for her remarkable educational fa.ilities and her pioneer work in the establishment of a perfected State ' s road system. H. N. B. Leonard Calvert — first Gov- ernor of Maryland. The first colonists arrived March 1634 in the shi] " Ark ' ' and " Dove. " ADMINISTRATION BOARD OF REGENTS Samuel M.

Thirty eight Frefiiy Dutn- Press Fahey SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Among our souvenirs, we will always treasure our rat and rabbit caps, our Sopho- more paddles, our Junior Prom programs, and last, but not least, our sheepskins. And by these mementos, will we recall our four happy college years together. Back in the Fall of 1924, we matriculated and soon passed from the painful stage of being bedecked m green and other bright colors, to the glory of unsurpassing dignity — -Sophomores. It was then that we displayed the revengeful side of our natures, and inflicted all kinds of tortures on our underclassmates. But do not think that this was all of our accomplishments. In the meantime, education, school spirit, campus activities, athletics all took their turn with us; and we emerged as Juniors, surpassing our elders in truth, wisdom and activity. Traditions are lovely things, when well planned and considered. Therefore, begin- ning with this year, we instigated many new ideas for old, and even went to the extent of taking our Junior Prom to Washington. The results were well worth the trouble, however; and with our .uklcd lionois in athletics, scholarship, .ind other activities, we passed on to our Senior year. And now as we stand ready to receive our diplomas, we are reluctant to commence our new existence, because we realize it will mean separation from all we have held so dear. Our only solace will be returning to the old school, and finding a University with wonderful improvements, even excelling our wildest hopes. Ruth T. Wiviiams, Hiihirian. Thirty nine jnimiiiii.

Ninety JUNIOR ygvEiux in? o o z Ninety two Laughlin KessltT Loane Holloway JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY Ah! Well do we remember ' Twas the last week in September That the Soph ' mores loosed their paddles And our days of peace were o ' er. And whene ' er there came a tapping. Even though a gentle rapping. Quick, we ducked beneath the bedstead For we dared not ope ' the door. These morc-or-less poetical verses depict the feelings of the never-to-be-forgotten beginning of the class of nineteen twenty-nine. After we had been assured by the haberdasher of our home town that our wardrobe con- tained all the essentials of a correctly attired college man, and had received the final counsel of our families, we arrived at College Park to take up the task of becoming highly educated gentlemen. Our advent attracted no further attention than occa- sional rude laughs from the upper classmen and a bit more personal attention from the Sophomores. The first few days of our college career were spent in carrying trunks, suit cases, and other sundry baggage to the rooms of upper classmen, and in composing a program of studies. Classes were next in order and for several weeks a bit of studying was reported in the Freshman dormitory. Studies were frequently interrupted by visits of the Sophomores, who have a certain terrifying way of conducting them- selves. Upon one occasion, the entire Freshman class was " .Soim ' of till ' tnitrt ■liili-d jornn-il ttic I- allitclically in. ri ' sliniint tt ' iini. " Ninety three " The monotony . Freshman Frolic ' zeas broken by the not only invited, but commanded, to attend a party given in their honor. This was a very enjoyable affair — for the upper classmen — who presided without any mercy. The object of the gathering was said to be educational. It was! From then on it was clear to all that Freshman Rules were to be enforced. They were! Football was in full sway and we were compelled to attend all home games in a body and lend our vocal powers in suport of the team. Some of the more athletically inclined members of the class formed the Freshman team which had a very creditable season, losing but one game and that to the Navy Plebes. The fraternities soon began a season of concentrated rushing and the " Sessions " took on a fraternal aspect in the Dorms. On pledge day some accepted bids, others did not. We are still wondering which group had the most sense. Thanksgiving brought holidays and a football game with Hopkins which ended in a tie. The tie brought no joy to our ranks, but the holi- day brought plenty; and for a few days we did not have to spend time making excuses for unpreparedness. From Thanksgiving till Christmas was just existence. The mono- tony, however, was broken by the Freshman Frolic. The efforts of our class to present entertainment to the upper classmen were evidently unappreciated, for o ur entrance on the stage was greeted with catcalls, hoots and old vegetable matter. Even though we were hosts at a dance which followed, our feelings were not considered in the least, and our girls were removed by those who had considerable more experience in that line. The weeks following the Christmas holidays were a veritable nightmare. Examina- tions were but three weeks off, and for some they represented nothing short of calamity. The only pleasurable interruption in this period was the annual snowball battle between the Freshmen and Sophomores. The stakes were the removal or continuance of the Rat Rules, according to the winner. At the designated hour the Freshmen were not met by the second year men alone, but by the entire student body. However, there were a number of very husky gentlemen in our class, so the tide of battle turned our way and a terrific drubbing was administered to those who were not our classmates. Examinations over, the class settled down to a few months of easy breathing. Some had gone home on advice of their deans, others got probation, but the majority passed all their courses comfortably. Basketball now took the throne in the kingdom of athletics and loud were the Freshmen in their support of the quintet. The Freshman five performed excellently, and their efforts were rewarded by having but one defeat on their record, the Navy Plebes again turning the trick. The Varsity had a very successful sched- ule as they beat the Navy, among other leading fives of the Southern Conference. With Spring came romance.

Lorldly were we Sophomores, the educators and tormentors of Freshmen — and, oh what a lovely lot of young things had been committed to our care. We saw to it that they lacked no attention. We carried not a grip nor trunk that Fall. They were menials at our bidding, while we were loud in our commands and terrible in our demands. The football team had been in practice for some time, and among the candidates for varsity positions were members of our class. We were all pulling for their success and the practices showed great prospects for a fine season on the gridiron. Our party for the Freshmen was a huge success, and the Freshmen were duly in- structed and impressed with their duties for the coming year. The football team was highly successful dur- ing our Sophomore year, numbering among its vic- tims the mighty blue of Yale. After this victory, the school went wild. The bonfires removed all of the surplus timber from the campus and much wood that was not surplus. Hopkins was encoun- tered and vanquished on Thanksgiving Day, bring- ing to a close one of the most successful seasons Maryland has had for some years. Christmas arrived with the delightful holidays that accompany it, and departed leaving us star- ing into a void of three weeks at the end of which loomed examinations. Exams passed, however, and only a few of the class went with them. The sun came out again, and for a few months more our life was happy. The basketball team had entered the field of competition and was conceded to be the best in the South Atlantic group of the Southern Conference. With Spring came a long series of dances and other social festivities. The Sophomore Prom was a shining example of the strength of the class „„. , , , , , . " f " twenty-nine.

June brought exams and partings, and thus the second rung of the ladder to a degree was scaled. Ill Juniors! What a strange, what a dignified term. No vulgar chastisements of Fresh- men was our lot, but an aloof concern with the task at hand. The Old Guard was again in the seat of learning, planning for the best of years. Rushing season held no thrills, classes held nothing new. We were sophisticated! The year would be one of easy pleasure and study. The rough places of college were gone, and we were masters of all the arts of deception in class, and the ways of women (we knew enough to leave ' em alone and not try to figure them out) . We were Juniors! Football was foremost in our minds as Dame Rumor had it that the team would be th e greatest of all times. The first few games seemed to prove that for once rumor contained some truth. However, as the season wore on, in- juries and the extreme difficulty of the schedule began to tell on the team; and Thanksgiving day saw Hopkins defeat us by one point. In the meantime, the campus was being beau- tified. Macadam roads were put in and the grounds ornamented with thousands of beautiful shrubs and trees. The old routine of classes, holidays, and exams carried the class into the third Spring of its existence. Our Junior Prom was one of the best ever given, and the only damper placed on the week- end was the dampening effect of the weather man. Basketball, baseball, track, and lacrosse ruled the Sport Realm in their seasons; and the Old Liners carried on as before, modest in victory " The only damper placed on the week-end was di-l • J _ the dampening effect of the weather man.

Whether the going be easy or rough, the class of nineteen twenty-nine will faithfully strive to uphold its name as one of the best classes the University of Maaryland has ever known. W. A. H. nn Ninety six SOPHOMORES u M gS O o X p o CO Ninety eight t ' liaffiiuh Wisnei- Healy Jarvis SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY The class of nineteen hundred and thirty returned to its beloved University last September eager to renew old friendships and to make new ones. The joy of coming back was especially keen since we had never experienced that event in our previous college existence. With only the social background which a year as Rats, the Freshman Frolic, and the Prom had furnished us, we began to turn toward our new activities in the role of Sophomores. Our attention was first drawn to the new Marylanders, and we didn ' t forget a single Rat meeting, abuse, or undeserved punishment which we had received as Freshmen. With Bill Chaffinch presiding over the Rats, and Edythe Eckenrode ruling the Rabbits, we had the long-anticipated privilege of giving orders. We had service as efficient as the most critical Sophomore could wish. The Rat caps and the Rabbits ' strange attire were ointment to our still open wounds. However, our part was not only that of the cruel master, for we did our best to inspire the new-comers with an awe of the upperclassmen and a love of Maryland and its traditions. We were also having our first experience as members of varsity teams, and officers in various organizations. Football, basketball, baseball, track, and lacrosse boasted of many prominent athletes who belonged to the class of 1930, and outshone some of the Juniors and Seniors. Since Sophomores are given credit for being self-loving, opinion- ated beings who cannot be told a thing, we may as well admit our virtues and claim all the honors due us. -y ' r Ninety nine niiiiiiiiiiiiiMMHitmnmin The Sophomore girls ' basketball team completed its second successful year. It repeated its record of last year, winning all six of the inter-class games played. Now there are just two more years for us to be champions, and then we ' ll let the others have a chance to win. The team which brought us this honor was composed of Catherine Barnsley, Captain; Margaret Clatlin, Margaret Crunkleton, Estelle Hoffa, Betty Jones, and Isabel Bewick. The Sophomore girls also carried off a scholastic honor, since one of the four stu- dents to get a straight " A " average was Barbara Schilling, a Sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences. Our main social event of the year was the Sophomore Prom, April 4. It was very successful. The committee to whom credit is due for the arrangements of the dance was: John McDonald, Chairman; Margaret Wisner, Jerry Powers, Lawrence Small wood. Delmas Caples, and Bill Kinnamon. It was made formal this year to give it dignity. Th; decorations were blue and white, the class colors; and they were most artistically planned. Confetti, the cause of much childish glee, was furnished for the enjoyment of other classes, while we looked on. Our scheme for keeping the crowd select and few by making the Prom formal, worked also with respect to refreshments, and this time no one was left out. After the Prom we decided that it was time to start to study so that we could keep our good record and return as Juniors next year. Then we learned the news that there would be no exams this year, but just three one-hour quizzes in every class; in other words, three finals instead of one. So, in spite of the nice, cold, rainy Spring days and evenings, we are all remaining in to study. June will see us leaving the University with a new feeling of the value of a college education and the knowledge of one year, especially, well spent. The officers who led us through this most successful year are: William Chaffinch, President; Robert Healy, Vice-president; Harry Jarvis, Treasurer; Margaret Wisner, S:cretary, and Fred Ribinitzki, Sergeant-at-Arms.

Soon, however, we began to ignore the dust and tractors; for our thoughts were diverted by the Rat and Rabbit rules and costumes which were thrust upon us. We were an industrious bunch at first; and from time to time it was reported that Freshmen had been seen in the Library. After surviving a strenuous rushing season, all of us welcomed the holidays with open arms; but they were all too short, and we were soon back at school cramming for mid-years. As is the way of all good classes, in February we lost a few of our illustrious members, but we nobly bore our loss. With the Spring activities and the many dances, our unpleasant memories were soon left behind. Our teams have had rather poor seasons and have been somewhat discouraged by their lack of success. However, valuable experience has been obtained. The Freshman Frolic, which gained the prestige of being the worst m the histor) ' of the institution, was later followed by a successful Prom and seemed to complete our little part in the social whirl of the year. Although at a later date we cannot be of use as an amusement for the upper class- men, perhaps we can serve them in some other way. The officers for this year were: Warren Rabbitt, President; John LeRoy, Vice-presi- dent; Joy Linton, Secretary; Shaw Blackistone, Treasurer; Elizabeth Brunner, Historian.

PUBLICATIONS McKenney, Hottel, Bowers STUDENT PUBLICATIONS Student publications at the University of Maryland, along with all other phases of University activity, have been progressing steadily and are now on a sound working basis. While the students do most of the planning and the actual work, there is close faculty supervision, both students and faculty working together in harmonious fashion. It is with no show of egotism that we state that both the Diamondback, the weekly paper, and the Reveille, our annual, are greatly improved over the issues of previous years. Profiting by the experience of those who have gone before, and the constantly mcreasing staffs of more trained workers, it would be a sad commentary if regular improvement did not occur. We are sure the retiring leaders of the Diamondback will pass along a better staff than the one with which they began the 1927-2 8 term, and the editors of the Reveille of 192 8 feel that they will do the same for the 192 9 annual. After all, whatever improvements that accrue from year to year come from that greatest of all teachers. Experience. Last year a happy precedent was established in the form of a joint publications ban- quet, followed by a dance. Brief remarks from faculty advisors and members of the retiring editorial staffs and the formal introduction of new officers comprised the only serious moments of the evening. This affair met with such hearty approval that it was repeated this year, the two staffs joining for an evening ' s pleasure at the Press Club in Washington.

The present volume, number twenty-seven, is the culmination of the untiring efforts of those Reveille Boards who have preceded us. In the preparation of the 192 8 Reveille, especial attention has been paid to the art work and interpretation of the theme. The Board has endeavored to make this year ' s annual more than ever an accurate mirror of our University life.

It was composed of four pages of four columns each. This sheet appeared twice a ' month and existed for four years, when it became the Maryland Agricultural Weekly. Two years later, when the name of the college was changed to Maryland State, the publication became the Maryland State Weekly. The Maryland State Review appeared on February 6, 1919, with an increase in size and subscriptions. In 1920 the paper was called the University Review, as at that time the Maryland State College became affiliated with and assumed the name of the University of Mary- land. However, with the appearance of the first issue an appeal was made to the stu- dents for a name that would be emblematic of the State University. So with the last issue of the scholastic year of 1921, was embodied a reorganized review under the new name, Diamondback. The size at that time was four pages of five columns each. Since that time the weekly has steadily grown until, beginning with the fall of 1927, the Diamondback was published each week as a six-column, six- page paper; thereby becoming one of the largest college weeklies in the South. During 1927-2 8 with Raymond Carrington as Editor-in-Chief, Mary Jane McCurdy as Women ' s Editor, John Schueler as News Editor, Ross Black as Business Manager, and a staff of more than thirty members, the paper has more than ever reflected the activi- ties and interests of the faculty and students of the University.

The untiring efforts of Major Lytic ancl his able staff have, to a large degree, been responsible for this development. While he is a member of this unit, the student learns many things which will be of benefit to him throughout his life. The advantages of such training are great, not only because of the physical development it gives the individual, but also because it prepares him to render service to his country. The Reserve Officers ' Training Corps is a universal institution among the universi- ties and colleges of the United States. The War Department holds a general inspection of these units every year and chooses those above the average. These are placed on the list of Distinguished Colleges.

It is the purpose of those interested to develop intercollegiate debating as far as funds will permit, and to place Maryland among the universities whose debating teams are outstanding in the East. Last year the University of Maryland scored a signal triumph in winning the regional contest in the National Intercollegiate Oratorical Association. This splendid piece of work was done by Clarke Beach, who, besides winning the honor, received a five-hundred dollar prize.

In 192 3 the men invited those women students who were Episcopalians or who were interested in the work of the church, to join the organization. The club is glad to acknowledge that a major part of its prosperity is due to the interest shown by the honorary members, especially by our Student Pastor, Dr. Ronalds Taylor.

At first, meetings were held at Dr. Auchtcr ' s home, Mrs. Auchter being a most gra- cious hostess. Later some meetings were held in the Administeration Building. During the last few years meetings have been held in the Greenhouse once a month. The Club conducts a Horticultural Show each year, sponsors a judging team, and has an annual ladies ' night banquet. At the monthly meetings the Club members pre- pare, cook, and serve their own meal. Prominent speakers provide the main part of the programs. This year the Club put on the Annual I,adics ' Banquet at the College Inn on Decem- ber 1. About thirty-five couples gathered around the tables and enjoyed a wonderful banquet as well as a delightful program. The Hort Club has as its purpose the creation and promotion of interest in Horti- culture, and the advancement of good-fellowship among its members; and aims to carry forward such Horticultural activities as will be of credit to our University.

Mercer, was organized for the cultivation of the intellectual faculties of the students. From its very beginning its was successful. In 1892 the society underwent several changes and from that time on has been known as " New Mercer. " Three years later an unsuccessful merger with the Morrill Society was attempted, but a separation soon occurred. This organization is not only the oldest student organization at the University of Maryland, but also has the distinction of being one of the oldest literary societies actively connected with an American university. During the past year a series of enliglitening lectures by various members of the faculty have been sponsored by New Mercer. The benefits of these meetings have not been confined only to members of the society, but have been enjoyed by many other students. As a result of winning the inter-society debate against the Poe Society for the past two years. New Mercer has but to achieve victory this year in order to permanently pos- sess the Patterson Cup.

Jones POE LITERARY SOCIETY The Poe Literary Society, founded in 1915, was formally the Morrill Literary Soci- ety, established in 1900. It has been very successful in its purpose of furthering literary education and entertainment on the campus. In 1915, Dr. Patterson offered a silver loving cup to the literary society that won the inter-society debate three times. The Poe Society won it permanently in 1918. Poe won it again in 1924 in a new series, but lost to New Mercer in 1926 and also lost in 1927. Several members of the faculty hold honorary membership in the society: Dr. Homer C. House, Prof. Charles S. Richardson, Prof. George Schulz, Prof. Cotterman, Prof. Zimmerman and Prof. Lemon. Others of the faculty who have been members are H. C. (Curly) Byrd and Dr. L. B. Broughton. This year Poe Literary Society has continued to play an important part in campus activities. Literary meetings are held very Wednesday night, and in addition to the usual programs special features have been offered. A joint meeting was held with New Mercer at which the societies were entertained with a talk by Gordon F. Cadisch. Its success caused the society to invite New Mercer later when they heard a speech by Con- gressman Zihlman. Duncan Clark has very ably filled the position of President during this year.

This honorary public- speaking society is the outgrowth of the Public Speaking Club which was organized at Maryland some six years ago. The object of this organization is to develop the ability of the members in the art of public speaking in order to afford an easy and agreeable means for the consideration of important public questions. It fosters the general exchange of ideas among the mem- bers and participates in such activities along th is line that will advance the interests of the University. One hundred thirty nine Witter, V.

Since that time it has published annually its Handbook for the University of Maryland, which is quite valuable in orienting the Freshman class. This year was opened with the Camp Conoy Freshman Retreat, which proved an effectual introduction to college life for those fortunate enough to attend.

Oni ' hundred foi aj STUDENT GRANGE One of the largest and most active organizations on the campus is the Student Grange. This is a student agricultural fraternity, and is a part of the large national fraternity of the National Grange of the Patrons of Husbandry. Organized in 1915, the Student Grange is one of the oldest and most prosperous societies of its kind in the country. The major purpose of the organization is to train young men and women for leadership in rural communities. It gives the students a direct touch with local and national farm problems. It is a medium through which the students can be brought in direct contact with the farmers of the State. Meetings are held twice a month. They are enlivened with business interests and very entertaining short programs, and brought to a close with refreshments. The Grange sends degree teams and educational and entertaining programs out to the chapters in the State. The officers for this year are: Master, Frank Witter; Overseer, Walter Chapman; Steward, Reese Sewell; Secretary, Grace Lighter.

It might be said that in this case " Necessity Was the Mother of Inspiration, " for the organization was in dire need of funds with which to purchase a chapter house. The first show was a great success — financially as well as dramatically. With such an excellent start, the show was presented the following year with many improvements. When " Untz " graduated, his work was taken over by Ed Lohse whose ability as a direct- or was so splendid that the show soon became an institution on the campus. Under Lohse ' s directorship, Pete Shrider, Kirk Besley, and Bill Molster held forth as end men. Lohse ' s place was taken by Ted Olds who was indeed fortunate to have such able dusky playmates as Simp Simmons, Walker Hale, Milly Price and Charley Shelton on hand. These boys have made the show even a bigger event than any of its predeces- sors. For the last two years, the minstrels have been greatly enhanced by " Bunt " Wat- kin ' s work as interlocutor. Among the participants of whom the Cotton Pickers boast are Johnnie Baldwin, a famous black-face comedian, and Kate Smith, the singing star of Honeymoon Lane. 1) One humhed forty five THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Prof. B. F. Goodyear Director The University of Maryland Little Symphony Orchestra, which was originally an adjunct of thf Maryland Opera Club, has been for the past few years a separate organization, although it has always played the instrumental accompaniments for the Opera Club ' s presentations. Organized in 1924 by Professor B. L. Goodyear, the Orchestra has developed rapidly and its expansion has been so great that the adjective " little " is no longer quite appropriate although it continues to be known as the Little Symphony. The Little Symphony has broadcast over the radio and presented a number of suc- cessful public programs, besides playing for many important school functions. Its most outstanding achievement thus far has been its evening concert, given in February, 192 8. At this concert the Orchestra devoted the entire second part of its program to the works of Franz Schubert, in commemoration of the centennial anni- versary of that composer ' s death. Especially memorable was the famous " Unfinished Symphony. " The Little Symphony has done much toward instilling a proper veneration and respect for the works of the masters. Never has it descended to cheapness of any sort, never has it swerved from its original policy of " none but the best in music. " One may look at its achievements in the past and feel assured that as a thoroughly artistic organization it will go far. Professor B. L. Goodyear, its organizer, has been the director of the Little Sym- phony since the first days of its existence; and he deserves a great deal of credit for his work and his untiring efforts in the interests of the University.

Hatfield, Rhine, Sangston, Miller STUDENT BAND Organized this year, for the first time a permanent organization, the Student Band has made unusual progress. In the past those students who played musical instruments were asked to play for the University on the spur of the moment, not feeling certain that they could give satisfaction; so it occurred to a group to found a permanent organi- zation. It is the purpose of the Student Band to furnish music when requested for all school activities; to further the interests of the University and the Band by giving concerts. The Band played at many athletic contests and pep meetings in addition to offer- ing its services to the M Club, and the Alumni Association. The temporary officers were Richard Wagner, Captain; Charles Grey, Drum Major, and Gelston McNeil, Secretary. The faculty advisor, Mr. Harry Hoshall, has spent a great deal of time perfecting the organization, and it is largely through his efforts that the Band was recognized. A capable director. Sergeant Otto Siebeneichen, was re- sponsible for the Band ' s making the progress that it did. Lester Baird, John Cowgill, and Joe Fouts, who drew up the constitution and by-laws, are also largely responsible for the present standing of the Band. Uniforms have been p romised the Band for next Fall, and a suitable award is to be given for faithful service. It is expected that, with proper support, this organization will make steady progress. First officers elected under the constitution are: Lester Baird Captain Edward Hudson First Sergeant Charles Grey Drum Major J. Fours Onartermaster One hundred forty seven Atlams, San iston.

Blount THE MARYLAND OPERA CLUB The Maryland Opera Club, an organization to promote operatic music, was founded in 1924 by a group of musically-minded students. Elizabeth Swenk, ' 2 5, was chosen as its first president, and B. Louis Goodyer, of the Department of Music, held the position which he still holds, that of director. The organization has been most successful thus far. The Club ' s most ambitious effort is " The Pirates of Penzance, " which was presented on March 9, 1927. A broad travesty on grand opera, abounding in many ridiculous situations and splendid music, The Pirates were received by a large and appreciative audience. Its popularity led to its being given again on March 24. The leading roles were sung by Katherine Baker, Olive Kelk, Stanleigh Jenkins, Dr. Charles B. Hale, E. M. Barron, John McDonald, Albert Cook, Winifred McMinimy, Helen Wooster, and Julia Louise Behring. In 192 8 another Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera, " H. M. S. Pinafore, " was pre- sented on March 21 and 22. The leading roles were sung by Lenore Blount, Grenville Leef, Charles B. Hale, John McDonald, Henry McDonald, Edward Barron and Mar- guerite Claflin. This hilariously funny, brilliantly tuneful opera was a great success, and received an enthusiastic reception from the students. The Little Symphony Orchestra, which has been closely affiliated with the Opera Club ever since that organization ' s formation, plays the accompaniments to the Club ' s productions.

The following year it was reorganized by some interested students, and secured the support of a faculty committee composed of Professor C. S. Richardson, Dr. C. B. Hale, and Professor R. M. Watkins. The Club enjoyed a most successful year both with the presentations given at home and with those given off the campus. Much of this success is due to Dr. Hale who directed the productions. Five plays, " The Pot Boiler " , " The Monkey ' s Paw " , " The Man in the Bowler Hat " , " Monsieur Beaucaire " , and " The Old Soak " were presented during the past year.

The Washington College game ushered in the season for Maryland, and the Old Liners got away to a good start by overwhelming the Eastern Shore team, eighty to opi . 7 7 6 13 30 21 39 14 7 Auams Walter Chapman, Mgr. TiL ' o hundred I ' ll lecn CROTHERS MCDONALD nothing. Roberts ' punting, a ninety-yard dash by Thomas, and numerous runs by Pugh provided the high-Hghts of the one-sided affair. Maryland continued on her victorious way by decisively defeating South Carolina. The Gamecocks failed to come up to expectations, and Maryland was able to pile up a big score in comparatively easy fashion. After such an Impressive start, the Old Line ' s defeat in the game with North Caro- lina at Chapel Hill was a distinct surprise. For the first quarter Maryland looked like the team that crushed South Carolina; but with the advent of rain, came a slump from which Byrd ' s men failed to recover. The first and only Maryland score came in the first period, when the Old Liners, led by the fine playing of Thomas, pushed their way across Carolina ' s line by consecutive rushes. On the following Saturday Maryland engaged the V. P. L Cadets at Blacksburg, and this time succeeded in placing her score in the win column. The feature of the game was Roberts ' sensational run. Catching a long punt from Peake, Poly ' s backfield star, he wove his way back through the Gobbler defense, and with effective interference by Jack Keenan, carried the ball over for the second touchdown. Pugh Drives Through South Carolina ' s Defense Two hundred sixteen 1. ' KESSLER In an exciting game, marred by the collapse of a large portion of the stands at Tate Field in Richmond, Maryland scored her third Conference win by outpointing Virginia Military Institute, ten to six. Happily, no one was seriously injured in the collapse of the stands. Maryland ' s touchdown came early in the first period, when a series of line plunges by Thomas and passes by Kessler carried the ball over the line. In the succeed- ing quarter Roberts booted a beautiful field goal, bring the count to ten, where it stayed for the remainder of the contest. Huge crowds of " old grads " and fans from nearby cities packed the Byrd Stadium on Home-Coming Day, only to witness Maryland ' s defeat by the Washington and Lee Generals. However, despite the disappointing outcome of the contest, it is safe to assume that the huge crowd enjoyed every minute of the spectacle; for it was one of the Snydir (Above) AND KissLiR (Below) Making Gains That Helped Beat Virginia Poly Two hundred seventeen UGH ROBERTS SNYDER T hardest fought and, at the same time, most cleanly played games ever staged at College Park. Washington and Lee brought an alert and fast combination and won by virtue of playing a headier game. The Generals ' first score was the result of a recovered fumble. Maryland ' s touchdown provided the feature of the day, for it was brought about by a thrilling fifty-five-yard dash for a touchdown by " Augie " Roberts, Mary- land ' s halfback. This beautiful run did much to erase the sting of the defeat. After this, the teams battled on even terms until a fumbled punt near the close of the fray was turned into a Washington and Lee touchdown. Maryland was completely swamped by Yale in the game at New Haven, thirty to six. Caldwell led the Bulldogs ' attack in fine style, and the Old Line made but one touch- down. This lone touchdown almost made up for the crushing defeat; for it came as the result of a ninety-yard dash by Snitz Snyder, Maryland halfback. Catching a punt, Snyder wove his way through the entire Yale team, aided by effective interference by Young. It was the longest run ever made in the Yale Bowl, and the one bright spot S.

Continuing on the down grade which they seemed to strii e after the Washington and Lee game, the Terrapins met defeat at the hands of Virginia. Maryland was unable to get under way properly; and the alert Cavalier team, taking advantage of the breaks, succeeded in piling up three touchdowns. Virginia flashed good football and deserved the win, but did not outclass Maryland quite as much as the score would indicate. Rob- erts and Linkous were the only Terrapins who played up to their usual game, the sterling play of the sophomore quarter giving Maryland rooters their only chance to cheer. At Nashvi lle on the following Saturday, Maryland encountered one of the best teams in the South and turned in a creditable performance against a superior combina- tion. Thirty-two points were piled up by Vanderbilt during the first half, while Mary- land was counting six; but in the second, the Old Liners developed a driving force that netted fourteen more. Pugh and Snyder were in the limelight for Maryland, get- ting away for much-needed runs; and Tenney provided the amusement of the day by completely divesting a Vanderbilt runner of his moleskins while attempting a tackle. But the mightiest blow came with terrifying suddenness in the shape of a fourteen to thirtceen defeat at the hands of Hopkins — the Baltimore school ' s first victory over Maryland in eleven years. An ironically misnamed Thanksgiving Day was the occasion of the sad event. The first half started with Maryland ' s second team, supplemented by Marii mtm Tr.NNF.v Making Long Gain Against South Carolina Two hundred nineteen Maryland Moves Dow n the Field Against Washington and Lee members of the third team, somewhat bewildered by Hopkins ' attack; and ended with the players in much the same condition. During this time Hopkins accumulated a lead of fourteen points, which came largely as the result of superlative punting by Lyons and a really speedy Hopkins attack. After the first team got into action. Old Line sup- porters breathed easier; and with the scoring of two touchdowns in the second half, they began to foresee a repetition of the 1926 contest. But this was not to be. With the score thirteen to fourteen, Maryland was employing straight rushing tactics and was well on the way to the third touchdown and victory, when an unfortunate attempt at an aerial game was broken up, and the golden opportunity lost. However, to take a philo- sophical attitude, the defeat was probably for the best in the long run; for it gave the Blue-Jays a long unknown thrill, and provided a topic for discussion In the operating rooms of the future.

Florida counted seven points to the Old Liners ' six; but the Maryland team kept Florida ' s back to the wall during the entire second half, seeming to lack just the necessary punch to advance the ball across the line. Roberts again proved to be the star of the game, making a thirty-eight-yard run for Maryland ' s score, -ind keeping the ' Gators in constant hot water by virtue of his excel- lent punting. Both teams played well, considering the rain and the soggy ground; and the Old Liners showed up to very good advantage despite the one-point defeat. : ' iiir.lIunofI, ( " lark.

However, Coach Faber suc- ceeded in developing a fairly creditable combination before the close of the season, and will perhaps send several capable men up for next year ' s varsity eleven.

Coach Shipley ' s charges played consistently good basketball throughout the entire season, and finished in the forefront of the Southern Conference, losing only one Conference game, that with Virginia. The inaugural contest was with Washington and Lee at College Park, and resulted in a rather easy defeat of the Generals by the Old Line men. Following this Maryland departed on a three-game tour of Virginia, during which V. P. I., V. M. I., and Washington and Lee again were met and rather decisively defeated. Home once more, Gallaudet fell before the Old Liners, as did Kentucky, from whom much more oppo- Tid Olds, Manai cr ■U;- Ta ' o hundred twenty five tmiiitimiiii tnimnii sition was expected. Then the Terrapins sustained their first defeat of the season at the hands of an ancient rival, Hopkins. In a thriUing battle staged at Carlin ' s in Balti- more, the Blue Jays downed the Old Line aggregation by a two-point margin. Virginia was downed by six points and Stevens by seven before Maryland ' s second defeat took place. This sad event occurred at Annapolis where the future admirals rather decisively took the measure of Coach Shipley ' s proteges in a game marked by loose refereeing and numerous long shots for points. The highly touted Pennsylvania combination was the third to take Maryland into camp, in an exciting contest at Philadelphia. Maryland played a good game, but the Quakers were about four points better, garnering thirty to the Old Liners ' twenty-six.

The Old Liners were decisively off form, as is evidenced by the score of thirty-four to twelve. From this time on, the record sheet is clear of defeats. Maryland vanquished Wash- ington College in a close contest, and then retaliated for a previous defeat by conquer- ing Hopkins. This last-mentioned contest was a thriller from start to finish, being rous h enough to add a certain zest in the eyes of the spectators. The result was in doubt until the last few minutes, when the Old Liners, encouraged by vociferous cheering, took a lead from which they were not toppled. After such a contest, the game with Virginia Polytechnic Institute was naturally somewhat of an anti-climax. The Gobblers showed up somewhat poorly and Maryland won in comparatively easy fashion. The one remaining game proved more of a battle than was expected, for Western Maryland brought a fighting combination to College Park and was only subdued by the Old Liners after a nip and tuck fight. One point was the margin of victory. Unfortunate scheduling prevented the representation of Maryland in the Southern Conference Tournament. Judging from the result of the season ' s contests it might be safely assumed that the Old Line school would have taken a high place. The team as a unit displayed such form that it is difficult to pick outstanding stars, but Radice and Dean, with their consistently brilliant play were rewarded with places on the mythical all-State five. Captain Linkous performed in his usual competent style, as did Adams, Heagy, Evans, Hetzel, and Madigan. Wonderful things are expected for the 1928-29 season; for with the exception of Adams and Linkous, the entire team will return. Moreover, except for Captain-elect Dean, ' every .man returning who played a regular position is a sophomore, which fact aug ' urs well for future Maryland basketball teams.

Due to the exceptional playing of the yearlings, many fast and fascinating games were well attended by the student body; and a great deal of interest was taken in the usually insignificant freshman games. The freshmen were able to win a large percentage of their engagements. A great deal of the credit for these consistent victories is due to the skilled coaching of Jack Faber, who drilled his team continually on the fine points of the game .If the members of the team continue to improve, several of them should have no difficulty in finding varsity berths next year.

Led by Burt McGann, diminutive but bel- ligerent and aggressive forward, the winners played really good basketball, their superior team play counting heavily in every game. The Tourney was, as usual, cleanly contested, and was not marred in any way by poor sportsmanship or bickering. Such a series is decidedly beneficial in fostering friendly relations between the various fraternities; and it is to be hoped that it will long remain an institution at Maryland. 7 " a ' o hundred Iwcnly nine miiiiniiunwimmMmmii .

Whiteford and Sheriff were sorely missed on the relay team, although Remsburg ran well in the vacated position. The first ' test for the Old Liners came in the form of a one-mile relay competition with the Harvard and Pennsylvania fours, which Coach Byrd ' s men won in the time of 5 minutes, 28 seconds. The race was closely contested throughout; and the result was in doubt until Captain Matthews, running at anchor for Maryland, crossed the finish line. J 1 J The University of Richmond meet next attracted the attention of the Maryland trackmen, practically the entire squad taking part in this engagement. The best the Old Line squad could do, however, was to place second to Virginia in total number of points scored. The Cavaliers flashed excellent form in almost every event. The forty- five yard hurdle event provided one of the closest races of the evening, Kinnamon of Maryland being nosed out for first place in the last few yards by Decker of W. and L.

It is significant that the winning time of 3:29 2 5 was over a second slower than that made by the Maryland four in their first race.

This triangular affair was easy for Harvard; but Maryland placed second and showed, in general, good form. The most notable performances by Maryland athletes were the winning of the 220 and 440, by Matthews and Thomas, respectively. Maryland ' s chances for a good season are unusually high.

Thus far, two meets of the schedule have been run off, the freshmen breaking even, with a loss to the Navy plebes and a win over Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. The Annapolis plebes proved too strong for the yearlings, though their superiority was chiefly in the track events. McDonald of the freshmen succeeded in counting seventeen points, all in field events. This particular freshman should prove extremely valuable next year, for the varsity needs bolstering chiefly in field events. Baltimore Poly was easy, for the boys from the Monumental City were able to gather only th ree first places. Ziegler and McDonald were the big guns for the freshmen.

Although somewhat overshadowed by football, the Old Line harriers do their share in contributing to Maryland ' s athletic renown. The members of this squad deserve a great deal of credit, for every fall afternoon finds them toiling wearily over the hillsides, training for the meets. This daily grind in all kinds of weather and over every kind of country has earned for them the col- loquialism of " Suicide Club, " certainly an apt cognomen. The 1927 season proved no exception to the established rule, for the Old Liners returned victorious in three of five meets and took fifth place in the Southern Confer- ence Tourney at Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The first engagement of the season was at Blacksburg with Virginia Tech. Here Maryland was defeated by one point. Myers, Morris and Gadd finished second, third and fourth respectively, but the absence of two of the Old Liners, Schrieber and Remsburg, because of illness, handicapped the team con- siderably. The next contest was with Washington and Lee at College Park, in which the Terrapins proved easy winners, by an 18-37 score. Myers, Remsburg and Gadd finished one, two, three in order, closely followed by Morris and Schrieber in fifth and sixth posi- tions. This meet was run concurrently with the football battle with the Generals on Home-Coming Day. The finish came between the halves, and the decisive victory made up in some measure for the gridiron defeat of that day. Following this, Maryland took William and Mary into camp in rather easy fashion. Myers finished first, followed by Gadd, Remsburg, Morris, and Plumley in third, fourth, Two hundred forty one fifth and sixth positions, respectively. The best the Old Liners could do at the South- ern Conference meet was to take fifth place, with Myers, as the first Maryland man, finishing in eleventh place. However, such a showing, considering the wealth of mate- rial competing, was as good as could have been expected. Virginia proved somewhat difficult, for Coach Truitt ' s men had their hands full in winning by a one-point margin. Gadd and Myers finished in a dead heat for second place, providing quite an exciting finish. On Thanksgiving Day, the Old Liners ' hard luck, extended to the cross-country course, and Hopkins won by a 27 to 30 score. Hopkins runners placed one, two, three, and were followed by three Maryland men, Myers, Gadd, and Plumley, for fourth, fifth, and sixth places. Despite the final defeat, no reason for lamentation can be found in the 1927 record of Maryland ' s cross-country team; for our men performed in a highly creditable manner and gained their share of victories.

At the time of this writing it seems that the Terrapins are represented by one of the strongest combinations of all time. This season promises to hold some of the best com- petition ever seen in the Indian game; for it is expected that the intercollegiate winner will be selected to repre- sent the United States in the Olympics. The Old Line stickmen got off to a good start when they defeated Randolph-Macon 10 to 1. The visitors furnished little trouble for Maryland, and the Old Line first team performed only about half of the contest. Linkous, playing in-home for Maryland, was the big gun in the Terrapins ' attack, scoring four goals. Horace H ampton, Manager I ICO hundreil forty five Snyder, Davidson, Evans Harvard was next met and easily subdued. The Old Liners looked ragged during the first half, but found themselves in the following period and scored goal after goal. Linkous and Holloway, with five and four goals respectively, were Maryland ' s scoring aces. Georgia Tech was the next victim, being routed by a 16 to 3 score. The Yellow- Jackets furnished little opposition, and the Old Line team did not have to extend itself to win. At Charlottesville, the Terrapins continued their rampage, trampling Virginia under foot by a 17 to 1 score. The Cavaliers gave little or not opposition, as was expected. Lacrosse is new at Virginia and they have not had sufficient experience to master it. Maryland scores were evenly divided among Linkous, Evans, Smink, Snyder, Ady, and Holloway, the first three scoring three apiece and the others two. At the time this book goes into the printer ' s hands, Maryland has met no foe worthy Ady, UeKan, Crothers Two hundred forty six Dodson, Holloway. Loane. Linkous of her mettle. Consequently the future is problematicil. Colgate, the next battle on the list, is expected to provide plenty of opposition. Jack Faber, new coach for the Old Line team, only recently was handling the stick himself for Maryland; and he seems able to impart to the players that skill which brought glory to him. Prof. Truitt, who has coached Maryland men in the game for many years was obliged to resign because of other duties, but Faber seems to have imbibed that knowledge of lacrosse which has made Prof. Truitt one of America ' s recognized authori- ties on the game.

In previous years the Old Line school has always been represented by teams which usually conclude a season with the victories outbalancing the defeats. The 1927 season was, on the whole, a successful one. Victories over Yale, Penn- sylvania, Lehigh, and Richmond together with several other victories contributed to make the campaign a highly gratifying one. Coach Shipley faced a rather hard task this year in developing material. With Kessler and Bromley the only two letter men returning, the prospects of picking a capa- ble nine from an array of green material was anything but encouraging. The Old Liners completed a Southern jaunt which proved somewhat disastrous, for they dropped six K du Two hundred fifty two WilsKii, ] ra(lit, ' an, I-. Hromley. llortnian out of eight games; losing to North Carohna University twice, Georgia twice, Georgia Tech, and South Carohna, and winning from Virginia and North Carohna State. However, this unfortunate record was somewhat expected; and considering the greenness of the material and the short time available for practice, the Old Liners have done as well as could be expected of them. Coach Shipley has a way of working wonders witli new material; therefore it is to be hoped, or even expected that by the time this book is opened, the team will have con- cluded a successful season.

Only one of five games has been lost so far by the Old Line Freshmen, wins being earned over Navy Plebes, Central High, and other teams of like caliber. Undoubtedly, a great freshman club has been organized by Coach Watkins, one that will furnish much needed players of sterling worth to future varsity nines. 11 ' Two hundred fifty four T N N I =s TlCo hundred fifty six Captain " Charlie ' Shelton TENNIS CHRONICLE OFFICIALS Ellwood Nicholas Manager John Hollano Assistant Manager Shelton, Captain Bishop Dyer Gable Howard SQUAD Kurland Lee Lucas McEntee Robertson Rosenbaum Schofield Spottswood Troth SCHEDULE U. of M.

The first two scheduled matches, those with Western Maryland and Virginia have been cancelled because of rain. Basing a forecast on material available, however, it would seem that Maryland was due for a successful net campaign, for five of last year ' s varsity squad are still in harness and capable racketers have come up from last year ' s Freshman outfit. Maryland tennis squads have always labored under a distinct disadvantage, in that there is no regularly appointed coach for this sport, the duty of rounding the team into shape usually falling upon the captain and manager. The playing facilities, too, are far from being of the best, so taken all in all, the quality of teams usually turned out is amazing. A rather large impetus was received two years ago, though, when the minor letter was abolished at Maryland, and letter awarded to the members of the tennis team was identical with that given to members of other teams. It was two years ago, also when the Old Liners hung up an enviable record by win- ning a virtual championship of the three states, Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia, by conquering the best teams of those states. Last year ' s net team did not quite come up to that standard, but it acquitted itself fairly well nevertheless. Manager Nicholas has this year arranged a schedule which is perhaps the hardest ever undertaken by a Maryland tennis team. Such teams as Navy, Hopkins, V. P. I., Two hundred fifty seven and Swarthmore, which would give any team a battle, are listed. To conquer these the Old Line net aggregation will have to flash good form, but Captain Shelton and the member of the team are confident Maryland will not be found wanting when the time comes. As this book goes to press the first match prevented by unfavorable weather condi- tions has just been completed, that with Virginia Polytechnic Institute. This match resulted in a win for Maryland by a six-one score, which victory augurs well for future engagements.

In May, 1927, the team was officially recognized by the Athletic Associa- tion, and the coveted M was awarded to the team members whose scores had counted in more than fifty per-cent of the matches. This action caused a more widespread interest in rifle shooting, and the team has very successfully completed a schedule against the best teams in the country. Last year the Maryland riflemen competed in the National Rifle Association League B matches and finished the season tied for first place with New York University. This season, although firing against more advanced competition, our sharpshooters have won second place in their league by virtue of having defeated Hopkins, V. M. I., V. P. I., Pennsylvania, Western Maryland, and others. An enviable record has been built up in the last two years by having won every shoulder-to-shoulder match. This year ' s team holds the State Championship, having defeated the Navy at Annapolis, and Hopkins and Western Maryland on the College Park range.

Stamp Dcciii of Wdiinii Two hundred sixty five COEDUCATION In 1916 the University of Maryland first opened its doors to women on the same terms as men, and that year two girl entered. One took a two-year course, and one a four-year course, so in 192 0, the first girl graduated from the regular four-year college course. The first two girls held sway until 1918-19, when five new girls appeared on our campus. The enrollment of girls in 1919-20 was 24, and in 1927-28, was 257. These numbers speak for themselves. There is no need to dwell further upon the ever increas- ing stream that is pouring into the University. The question of housing is grave because of the limited accommodations in the three small campus houses, Gerneaux Hall, the Y Hut, and the Practice House, which are used as residences for 52 girls. We have three sorority houses, which this year take care of 43 girls, and two approved off-campus houses, " The Homestead " , and " Merri- man Manor " , which accommodate 44. The rest of the girls live in private homes recom- mended by the Dean of Women or come as day students from the surrounding towns. All of the resident girls, whether in college dormitories, sorority houses, or approved off- campus houses, are under the college rules. It is interesting to note that none of the girls ' dormitories was built as such. Ger- neaux Hall was the former residence of the college President, Captain Sylvester being the last one to use it. The Practice House was built for the use of the Home Economics Department, and the Y Hut was built as an auditorium and chapel after the fire in 1912. During the war it was used as a Young Men ' s Christian Association Building. In 1921 partitions were put up and it was turned into a girls ' dormitory. A dormitory for women is one of the outstanding needs of the University, so it is hoped that the State Legislature will see fit to provide it. The Women ' s Student Government Association cooperates with the Administration in carrying out the rules and regulations of the University and in solving common prob- lems. Under the excellent leadership of Miss Frances Freeny, this Association has just completed the most successful year of its existence. The Executive Council and officers of the Association have shown cooperation and a seriousness of purpose which have made them a most efficient group. There are at the University four sororities: Sigma Delta, founded in 1920; Alpha Omicron Pi, founded in 1921 as Lambda Tau, and established as a chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi in 1924; Kappi Xi in 1924; and Alpha Upsilon Chi in 1926. In 1926 the Women ' s Panhellenic Council, which handles all sorority matters, was organized. In the short time women students have been here, they have introduced the Girls ' Rifle Team and Women ' s Student Government Association in 1922; May Day in 1923; the Women ' s Athletic Association in 1924; the Women ' s Senior Honor Society in 1925; and Theta Gamma, honorary home-economic fraternity, in 1928. It is hoped that in the years to come, as the number of women students increases, we will continue to have the same splendid girls with their sanity of ideas and their high ideals, who will become imbued with the intangible Maryland spirit, and who will carry on our traditions and customs and help to perpetuate them. Miss Adele H. Stamp, our Dean of Women has been the guiding hand of the girls in their efforts to promote and develop organizations that will benefit our University. She is rightly the friend and advisor of each girl and it is hoped that she will be with us for many years. Ta ' o hundred sixty six Karr, Bishoff, Siehler, E.

The aim of this organization is to foster the develop- ment of good scholarship and high ideals in standards of college life. All social regula- tions for girls are made through their Executive Council which is composed of elected representatives. However, all these rules are subject to the approval of the Dean of Women. In order that the important offices open to girls may be distributed more fairly, the Women ' s Student Government Association has put into force a Pomt System. The officers for this year are: Frances Freeny, President; Mary Jane McCurdy, Vice- President; Anna Price, Secretary. Two hundred sixty seven , V X ]LJU (A ' " ' ' Bi (iruver. A. HerzuL;.

The purpose of this association is to foster a spirit of friendship and cooperation among the women ' s social fraternities of the University of Maryland, to encourage chapters to take an active interest in all college activities for the common good; and to regulate all matters of local interest to the women ' s social fraternities on the campus; to work together for the good of the college; and by coop- eration to benefit the fraternities of the college and to unify the interests of fraternity and non-fraternity women. In accordance with these principles, the Council has worked during the last two years for harmony and good will among its members, and has been rewarded by the friendship and cooperation shown by the fraternities for each other. The Panhellenic Council is not a super-regulatory body, but an association work- ing for mutual helpfulness and advantage, and for recognition by the National Pan- hellenic Congress when its probationary period is fulfilled. Among its accomplishments of this year, the Council counts the Panhellenic tea held for all new women students at the beginning of the year, the policy of exchanging din- ner guests among the fraternities on alternate Wednesdays, and the establishment of a new system of rush rules.

Gnive WOMEN ' S SENIOR HONOR SOCIETY In the hope of creating a means for the formal recognition of special merit in scholar- ship and activities, the senior class of 192 5 organized the Women ' s Senior Honor Society. Each year, early in the morning of Baccalaureate Sunday, the junior girls are chosen in a very impressive service, and they form the society for the following year. To be eligible to the organization, a girl must have an average of " B " for her three years ' work, and have also taken an active part in extra curricular activities. Being only an honorary society, it does not attempt to take a very active part in campus affairs. However, in questions where the welfare of the students is concerned, a definite stand is taken by the society, in an attempt to better campus conditions. There is but one faculty member of the organization — Miss Adele H. Stamp, who helped in organizing the society, and has been a great inspiration and guidance ever since. Officers for this year are: Ruth T. Williams, President; Grace Lalegar, Vice-Presi- dent; Frances Gruver, Secretary and Treasurer. Other members are: Mary Jane Mc- Curdy, Frances Freeny, and Constance Church. Tu!o hundred sixty nine Schilliue:, Riill. [r: Ii,]iny. Karv.

A. is an outgrowth of the College Women ' s Church Club which was organized in 1920 with the object of developing Christian womanhood, pro- moting the Christian life among the women students, and aiding them to lead such a life. In the spring of 1923 the members of the C. W. C. C. decided to form a Y. W. C. A. and in May, 1924, they were granted a charter from the National Board of the Y. W. C. A. of America. The purpose of the Y. W. C. A. is to meet the need for an all-campus religious organization among the women students which will correlate and coordinate all the religious activities for the women of the University. In cooperation with the Y. M. C. A. the Y. W. C. A. assumes a major responsibility for the religious activities of the campus. This year delegates were sent to three big joint conferences; the Tri-State Fall Con- ference at the University of Delaware; the Mid- Winter Eastern Conference at Gettys- burg; and the Spring Cabinet-Training Conference at Sherwood Forest, Maryland. Plans were made to send delegates to the regional conference at Eaglesmere in June. As a part of its work, the Y. W. C. A. supplied a Christmas basket for a poor fam- ily; sent flowers, books, and letters to all women students who were ill, and conducted a highly successful Big-Sister Movement for the Freshman girls. Officers for this year were: Geneva Reich, President; Roselle Bishoff, Vice-President; Nona Miliner, Secretary; Hazel Watson, Treasurer; Margaret Karr, Undergraduate Repre- sentative. Other members of the cabinet who acted as chairmen of standing commit- tees are: Jane Kirk, Ruth Barnard, Margaret McMinimy, Barbara Schilling, Mary Stewart York, and Gladys Bull.

Much to our surprise and joy, the day was a beau- tiful one the sun was shining, and everything was calm and peaceful. Onto the setting of Gerneaux Green, with the senior girls sitting at one side of the throne, came three little maids from the planet Earth. They had dropped from an airplane and had no idea where they were. They espied a queer old woman walking around and asked her where they could possibly be. She replied that they were in Goose- land and that she was Mother Goose. She told them that they had chosen a very auspicious occasion to pay her a visit, for this was May Day in Gooseland. They could watch her and her children choose the Queen and her court, but first they must meet her children. There was Mary, Mary Quite Contrary, Little Bo-Peep, Little Jack Horner, Little Miss Muffet, Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, Curly Locks, and many other children of Goose- land. To entertain the visitors from the planet Earth, the wooden soldiers marched and danced, the dolls from the various countries gave their national dances, and Mistress Mary ' s flowers gave a lovely interpretative dance. Twenty of Mother Goose ' s children did the annual Maypole Dance. A beautiful and gracious Queen was chosen by Mother Goose from the senior girls, and four lovely maids were chosen by four of her children. Grace Lalegar was crowned Queen of the May, Frances Freeney was First Maid; Alma Essex, Second Maid: Mary Jane McCurdy, Third Maid; and Margaret WoU, Fourth Maid. w li Two hundred seventy IWo ■ HHJf ttHIJll tl|II.MIti j iinw»inimn»M«ftHnnw wtiHtnniti ntiiiMnM I r ' Mother Goose and Her Childri ' Kl, [.(M ks MAY DAY Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater Two hundred seventy three Essev, Mead.

The purpose of the club is to further athletics and good sportsmanship among the girls at this institution. Although the membership is naturally limited, the Girls ' " M " Club has had its part in the development of women ' s athletics which has taken place during the past two years. It is to be hoped that with the increased number of girls attending the University, this organization can become more active on the campus.

Edmonds WOMEN ' S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Since the origin of this organization in 1924, rapid steps have been made toward making it a larger and better medium by which to carry out the interests of the women ' s athletics of the University. At the start, rifle and basketball were the only sports provided for in which women could participate. Since the beginning of the Women ' s Athletic Association, a Tennis Tournament has been held each Fall and Spring. This is open to all women students. For the past two years, this organization has been trying to make swimming one of the major sports. Although the team must go to Washington for its practice, much interest has been maintained. This year, for the first time, some progress has been made in establishing track as a women ' s sport. The Women ' s Athletic Association combines social enjoyment with physical exercise in its annual banquet, at which time the awards for the year are given to the Rifle Team, the winning Basketball Team, and the winner of the Tennis Tournament. The officers for this year are: Constance Church, President; Elizabeth Garber, Vice- President; Catherine Barnslev, Secretary; and Alma Essex, Treasurer. TiVo hundred seventy five GIRLS ' RIFLE TEAM During 1927-28 the Girls ' Rifle Team has re- rpcndsd nobly to the ch;il- lengc to live up to its pa:t reputation. The schedule included twenty-three tele- f;raphic matches, of which 1 5 were wan, 2 tied, and 6 failed to report at time of writing. In addition to these, two shoulder-to- shoulder matches were nred; one, a triangular match with George Wash- ington University and Drexel Institute, the other with the Men ' s Team. In the National Rifle As- sociation ' s Women ' s Intercollegiate Championship Match our team finished second with a score of 2953 out of 3000, While George Washington University took first with 2972. Scores from the Dot and Circle Trophy match have not yet been reported, but our team made an excellent showing in this match. The high scorers of this year are Hazel Kreider with a score of 1468 out of 1500, and Alma Essex with 1457 out of 1500. The change in size of targets this year, which made them half the size of those used last year, is the cause of the seemingly low scores; but in reality the marksmanship has been better than ever before. The team will lose three members through graduation: Alma Essex, Mary Jane McCurdy, and Frances Gruver. It is our good luck that many of our team ' s members are Sophomores, and that there are a surprising number of good shots among the Fresh- man squad. Juniors are: Hazel Kreider, Elizabeth Garber, Naomi Morris, Clemencia Gause and Mildred Hislop. Sophomores are Alice Orton, Margaret Mitchell, Virginia Fooks, Catherine Barnsley, and Margaret Meigs.

As a result the proposed club was formed and the following officers were elected: Eleanor Freeny, President; Edythe Eckenrode, Vice- President; Betty Rodier, Secretary, and Margaret Meigs, Treasurer. Having no pool here at the University is a great handicap; but in spite of this, the plunges at the Wash- ington Y. W. C. A. pool, were well attended. We hope that at some time in the not too-distant future we will have a pool at College Park. Swimming is a sport that nearly all girls enjoy and we feel that if more would go out for it, an appropri- ation would be given to help defray expenses. Though there was a greater number of girls partici- pating in the sport this year than ever before, we hope to have even a more sizeable group next year.

Forty-five girls signed up for the Fall Tournament. Although the weather was unusually good and the playing season long, the matches were never completed, due no doubt, to the bad condition of the courts. Constance Church, Elizabeth Garber, Marguerite Claflin, and Isabel Dynes won the greatest number of matches last fall. With " Connie " as victor of last Spring ' s Tourna- ment, she has gained recognition as winner of four consecutive series. " Betty " Garber was runner-up in the Spring Tournament and shows excellent promise for this Spring. This year ' s Spring Tournament has been somewhat late in starting, and at present the courts are being put in shape and a great many girls have signed up for matches. With the excellent material at hand, and the interest which is shown, there should be keen com- petition. Inspired with a desire to play " for Sport ' s sake " and not merely for personal attainment, the con- testants will play their matches according to schedule. This Spring Tournament should be larger and harder fought than anv ever staged at the Univcrsitv of Mary- land. Girls ' tennis was managed by Isabel Dynes this year; she deserves credit for her fine work with the squad.

C. boys, back in 1891, organized a club for the promotion of such activities. In the quest for a name, it was recalled what a gay gathering was always in evidence at the old Rossbourg Inn, still standing directly in front of the University. In consequence, the new organization was appropriately called the Rossbourg Club. During the thirty odd years since the club ' s founding, the college dance has under- gone many changes. However, Maryland still finds the Rossbourg Club on the campus and actively engaged each year in conducting five or six of the outstanding dances on the University social calendar. A new constitution, adapted to present conditions, has been drafted this year; and it is certain that the Rossbourg Club is destined to continue to fill the need that exists among students for such an organization.

The ballroom of the New Willard Hotel in Washington was the scene of this, the outstanding event of the Mary- land social calendar. Dancing to the unexcelled music of Nesbit ' s Pennsylvanians, sitting in the boxes or balcony, or walking the length of the long floor to observe and be observed, were some five hundred couples of Maryland students and their friends. Here were short girls, girls from " up state, " sophisticated " trotters, " girls with the thrill of a first Prom on their faces, breath-taking girls. And with them, slim boys, embarrassed boys, sopho- mores wriggling uncomfortably in new tu.xedos, juniors and seniors with coats closely buttoned to hide the empty pin marks over the heart. The evening was well under way when everyone stopped dancing to join in the Grand March, led by Gordon Kessler, Junior President, and Lillian Marceron. Later came attractive favors and refreshments. The weather was perfect, all arrangements were carefully executed, the crowd was happy — what more could one ask for a perfect Prom?

" 7 hree hundred int ' " I Walked Up the Campus Toward the Dorms ' ' A VISIT TO OUR CAMPUS ) hen the train stopped somewhere north of Washington, the conductor told me I had reached my destination, College Park, Maryland. College Park is the place where that world-renowned state institution (not to be confused with Sing Sing or Leaven- worth) is located. It was pitch-dark and foggy when I stepped off the local into a soft, mushy combination of clay and water. I finally succeeded in extricating myself, and, going from one muddy road to another, collected many samples of Maryland mud. Solid ground was reached, much to my surprise, after several league of wading. This, then, was the new road they had proposed building for the past ten years. I gazed on a view somewhat reminiscent of shell-torn France. With steam rollers to the right of me and tractors to the left of me, I walked up the curving campus highway toward the dorms. The next morning I went up to the " Mess " Hall for breakfast and met Ed Christ- mas, the twelve-minute egg that works there and his boot-black, George Burroughs. Ed said, " Have you paid yet? " I said, " No, I haven ' t, Mr. Xmas. " He said, " Gimme thirty-five cents or I ' ll knock you dead! " I had a breakfast of bacon and liver, liver and bacon, and liver. When I finished, I dropped down to Bill White ' s to get a real bite to eat. Here I met a campus celebrity (at least he told me he was) named Barney Rob- bin. He insisted on showing me around the campus. Barney pointed out the stadium and criticized it in a legal manner as being architecturally imperfect. Somewhat later, we made our way up the hill to the new edifice of which all Mary- land is proud — the new Chemistry Building. This building was built and finished, and left idle for a semester in order to give visitors the idea that Maryland was perpetually putting up new buildings. I later learned that the idea for erecting new buildings on the campus was sponsored by several faithful advocates of campus needs in the Public Speaking classes of Professors Richardson and Watkins. The sentiment was brought about by these faithful members giving continuous, soul-stirring and eloquent speeches on that monotonous subject, " Campus Improvements. " The " Ag " Building, or Administration Building as some call it, was just above, so we entered and were ushered into Mr. Byrd ' s office. Mr. Byrd ' s secretary took our names, informed us that Mr. Byrd had just stepped out but would be back in a half hour, and asked if we would like to leave any message. (Note: Mr. Byrd is always out. His secretary has this form memorized from constant telephone inquiries.) We found out that the only people who were ever in Mr. Byrd ' s office were eleven football players, other luminaries and his secretary. Thrve hundred two niiiitiiiiuiiHnm " " " » " " " ' " " " " " We then crossed the hall to the Registrar ' s office and were sent up stairs to the Arts and Science Department to a young man named Professor Gordon Cadisch who, before his career on the Liberal Arts Faculty, was a well-known Wall-Street financial wizard. He seemed very glad to see us and asked if we had been to Europe latel ' y. Barney answered for both of us (as he had been doing continuously) that we had not, but that he hmisclf knew all he wanted to know about Europe. At present he was engaged in the more important legal business of investigating the Mississippi Flood Relief in Congress with his friend, Judge Schulz. From there we went downstairs, but the man in the Post Oflice was asleep, so we didn ' t ask for our mail. Barney explained that General Service rendered very little to anyone and the name was just traditional. Dropping into Bill White ' s for lunch we were astonished to hear the voices of Pro- fessor Watkins and Ted Olds over the radio getting in some close harmony on a little number entitled, " Whitewash and Ventilate Your Coops so Your Chickens May Be Healthy. " Maryland ' s great health center, the College Park Bowling Alleys, was just below, so we looked in there and viewed several faculty members galavantin ' around like a bunch of young cut-ups, recklessly tossing the balls down the alleys, and letting out warhoops when the pins would drop. Barney suggested going up to the Reveille office in the gym, as he wished to see the editor about not personally delivering his copy of the school paper. The Reveille office was closed; and Brown of Harvard, the only man around, explained to us that the office was never open and very little, if any, work was done there. He said the boys used the room as a place to eat their lunch. We then visited the R. O. T. C. offices where " Sergeant " Flautt puts out the regula- tion R. O. T. C. outfits that never fit, and tells you you look good in them. After an abbreviated stay, we went up to the Hospital, but nobody was there — not even the nurse, Miss Raezer. Here, I learned that the doctor ' s standard line is, " All you need is a pink pill. " Just across was Morrill Castle, a stately OLD structure that is gradually falling into decay. We went into the Engineering Building to see Dean Johnson, but only reached the head of the stairs. The junior Civils were battling their ancient ri- vals, the Electricals, for the control of the building. ' Nuff said! At supper time I followed the crowd toward the " Mess " Hall and pushed my way in like the rest. Mr. Xmas wasn ' t around, so I enjoyed my meal immensely. I tried to get in a few words with Dean Mount, but couldn ' t raise my voice above the noise of the soupeaters. One fellow next to me stripped out two teeth shifting gears on a pork chop. That evening I spent a very enjoyable time in the movies. I forgot the name of the pic- ture, because I was lullabyed to sleep by the soft and melodious voices of a group of the boys singing " In A Little Spanish Town " (where everyone wished they were) . Shortly afterward I returned to the dorms and was soon sound asleep in mv regula- tion five and one-half foot bed. Thus ended my first day at Maryland.

HOW THEY RUSH— AND RUSH Editor ' s Note: A certain freshman showed us parts of her diary one day and asked if they did not give true pictures of the sororities during rush season. Finally, she consented to let us publish them. September 14: Dear Diary, I ' m filled with thoughts of school these days. Today I went to my first rush party, an Alpha Upsilon Chi tea, and met my future schoolmates. They told me about lots of nice boys they knew there. September ij: I went to the Kappa Xi tea today — guess they will want me to join their sorority ' cause they treated me royally. September i ): When I walked in the Ag Building today, I wondered if fate had landed me in a boys ' school, until I was attracted by a strain of sweet music, " Show Me the Way to Go Home, " sung by Dorothy White in her clarion-like voice. All signs of lonesomeness vanished. September 25; Just a few minutes ago I was at Gerneaux Hall at the Panhell (what a funny word) tea. I met a girl named Edith Burnside — when I went in the next room, she was in there. I thought she had dashed to get some girl out of an enemy ' s hands, but when I went back to the parlor, she was still there. They ' re twins. I still feel a little dizzy. September 28: Had luncheon at the Sigma Delta house today. The menu consisted of fried weenies, water, and napkins. I supose they never serve Emily Herzog and a good meal together, because Emily ' s winning personality is so attractive one loses sight of the food. October 15: The Sigma Delta gave a Japanese party this afternoon; when I went inside the house, I found a line of little Japs waiting. I said hello. They didn ' t answer, so I guess they didn ' t speak English. I wonder where the Sigma Deltas got their house? They have girls of all ages. There was one little girl there who rolls her eyes and talks like a fifteen-year old. Some of them were awfully dignified though; I guess they were faculty members. October ly: I went to the A O Pi ' s rose party. Some of the girls wore costumes and danced. I hear that you have to be rich to belong to a national, but the A O. Pis don ' t look it. Anyway, they aren ' t all graceful dancers. October 26: I had an interview with some Kappa Xis today. I know all about their future national. October 2S: The Sigma Deltas gave us a rush dinner dance tonight. A lot of Phi Sigs were there, and every one I danced with asked me for a date. October 50: Three function in one day! Kappa Xi formal breakfast and tea in the afternoon followed by a little private questionaire; and the A O Pi formal dinner in the evening; the A O Pi ' s sang some sentimental songs and cried until I almost cried too — about the singing, I mean. They didn ' t say anything about giving me a bid, so I guess I ' ll have to ask Martha Ross. October 3 r: Silence period! First day I ' ve had to buy my lunch. November i: Deary Diary, I ' ve received bids from every one of the sororities. What shall I do? My friend Betty Brunner would probably advise me to take them all, but I just think I ' ll turn them all down — and some day start a sorority of my own. Three hundred ten WORSE AND WORSER My Stars!
