Sunday afternoon at honn.e Bureau o£ Mines Dedication • From September until June and from morn- ing until night, the University of Maryland campus has been a stage of never-ceasing ac- tivity. Life for every Maryland student has been a life full of events, some memorable, some commonplace, but all contributing to the important process of becoming educated. Throughout this volume of the Terrapin, the typical and more important events of the year have been recorded, but because they are seen from the viewpoint of their educational value, 1938 Terrapin is more than an account of collegiate activity — it is the record of a year of liberal education.

BOARD OF REGENTS Henry Holzapfel, Jr., John E. Raine, Wil- liam P. Cole, Jr., J. Milton Patterson, Treasurer; Mrs. John L. Whitehurst, Secre- tary; W. W. Skinner, Chairman; Clinton L. Rigqs, Harry H. Nut- tie, W. Calvin Ches- nut. J. H E University of Maryland, composed of its administrators, faculty, equipment, and traditions, is the unity which has provided the educational environment for 1937-38. Reflecting the student body ' s pride in the growth of the University during the year, the editors have gathered together pictures and facts about the University, of the men and women who guide it, about the existing order and innovations made during the year with a hope that the unusual progress made will be appreciated not only now but also in the future. BOARD OF REGENTS The government of the University of Mary- land is vested in a Board of Regents consist- ing of nine members appointed by the Gov- ernor with the consent of the Senate, for a term of nine years, one membership termi- nating each year. The Board selects the President who acts as Executive Officer of the University and of the State Board of Agriculture. The Board of Regents is com- posed of the following members: Chairman, W. W. Skinner, Kensington. Dr. Skinner has been a member of the Board since it was formed in 1916. He is Assistant Chief of the Bureau of Chemistry and Soils of the United States Department of Agriculture. Secretary, Mrs. John L. Whitehurst, Balti- more. Mrs. Whitehurst has the distinction of being the first and only woman member of the Board. She is an active officer of the General Federation of Women ' s Clubs and a former President of the Maryland Federation. Treasurer, J. Milton Patterson, Baltimore. Mr. Patterson, a former District President of the Rotary International, is Executive Secre- tary of the Board of State Aid and Charities, which has responsibility of carrying out the state and federal program for social security. W. Calvin Chesnut, Baltimore. Mr. Ches- nut is regarded as one of the most able Fed- eral Judges of the country and is famous for his decision against the N.R.A. For many years he has been a member of the faculty of the University of Maryland Law School. William P. Cole, Jr., Towson. Congress- man Cole represents the Second District in Congress. He holds the rank of Ca ptain of Infantry for service in overseas duty during the World War. His son is now attend! the University of Maryland. Henry Holzapfel, Jr., Hagera vir.

In 1935 the University of Maryland awarded him a Certificate of merit in Agriculture for his outstanding work in this field. John E. Raine, Tow- son. Mr. Raine is Gen- eral Manager of the Automobile Trade As- sociation of Maryland. He supervises the an- nual automobile show held in Baltimore and is responsible for its success and appeal. Clinton L. Riggs, Baltimore. Mr. Riggs, President of the Riggs Building Company of Baltimore, was Secretary of Commerce and Police, and Commissioner of the Philippine Islands from 1913 to 1915. During the Span- ish-American War he served as Adjutant General with the rank of Major General. PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY Without detracting in one degree from the work of others who have aided in its develop- ment, it can be safely said that the man who is most responsible for the spectacular growth of the University of Maryland is Dr. Harry Clifton Byrd. A graduate of the old Maryland Agricultural College, Dr. Byrd returned to his Alma Mater twenty-five years ago and has since served the University with energetic perseverance. From the days when Dr. Byrd was an un- dergraduate at Maryland Agricultural Col- lege comes the story of his first experience on the college football field. After looking at his lean frame, the coach told him to turn in his uniform and give up a hopeless task. The inimicable " Curley " gave up his uniform, but he did not give up the task. The next day he appeared in togs of his own, including a home-made jersey, second-hand pants and women ' s stockings. Before three games had passed, " Curley " was a regular end and by the middle of the next season had found his true position as guarterback. That same determination and ability has since made history for the University of Maryland. In 1913 " Curley " came back to the campus to coach football, and by 1918 his energy and talent for organization had become so apparent that he was made Assis- tant to the President. He was made Vice- President in 1932 and four years later was named President of the University. Dr. Byrd has one job and one hobby — the University of Maryland. The astounding rise of the College Park branch of the Uni- versity from 117 students in 1917 to the pres- ent enrollment of 2,500 testifies to the zeal with which he has tackled his job. His more recent activities have brought to the College Park, Baltimore, and Princess Anne branches of the University a $2,260,- 000 building expansion program, and a gift of a million dollar model farm for the College of Agriculture. This year saw faculty improvements in all colleges at College Park, especially Arts and Sciences. The College of Agriculture was reorganized, bringing extension, research, control work and teaching into a more com- pact unit. The College of Engineering was accredited by the Engineers ' Council for Pro- fessional Development. Dr. Byrd has also been instrumental in bringing to College Park the federal head- quarters of the Bureau of Fisheries and the Bureau of Mines, and this year he instituted a program with the Bureau of Fisheries, State Conservation Commission, and the Univer- sity for rehabilitation of the water resources of the Chesapeake Bay. Notwithstanding the fact that he averages fifteen hours a day at his work. Dr. Byrd finds time to give four or five speeches a week in different parts of the State in behalf of the University. BUSINESS MANAGEMENT In the left wing of the Administration Build- ing, adjacent to the cashier ' s window, is the Division of Business Management. During the fall, while carpenters and workmen were changing minor parts of the interior to in- Harvey T. Casbarian, Comptroller, who is in charge of finan- ces of the University « 12 » LIGHTS FROM THE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING REFLECT ON THE SNOW WHILE STUDENTS " GRIND AWAY " IN THE LIBRARY ABOVE crease working efficiency, the Department itself was in the midst of reorganization. In brief, the task was begun of making the Department of Business Management the focal point of all University financial activity. This department now manages not only the financial matters of the College Park and Princess Anne branches of the University, but also those of the Baltimore schools, the University Hospital in Baltimore, the State Department of Forestry, the Live Stock Sani- tary Service, the Maryland Geological Sur- vey and the State Weather Service. REGISTRATION During the academic year 1937-38 more students attended the University than ever before in its history. A total of 2,331 under- graduates and 362 graduate students were registered at College Park, and 1,201 in the Baltimore Schools. In addition, nearly 1,000 students enrolled in the Summer School of 1937 and more than 3,000 enrolled for vari- ous other schools and short courses spon- sored by departments of the University. A grand total of 7,949 individuals registered at the University during the year. The growth of the University of Maryland during the last twenty years has been little short of phenomenal. In 1917 there were 206 students attending the College Park division of the University, whereas for the academic year 1937-38, registration reached the peak of 1,809 men and 884 women. Twenty years ago the Freshman Class had 54 students. This year there was a total of 961 first year students. Although most of the students registered at the University come from Maryland, thirty- eight states, six foreign countries, and four territories were represented on the Maryland campus this year. Every county in the state was also represented. Equally impressive are the figures on grad- uation. This June a total of 743 men and wo- men were awarded their sheepskins in Ritchie Coliseum. Of this number, 407 re- ceived diplomas for work done at the College Park schools and 336 graduated from the professional schools in Baltimore. The teaching staff for the entire University numbers 552, with 316 instructors located at College Park and 236 in Baltimore. Back from summer vaca- tion.

Director of Adimissions Almd H. Preinkert, Registrar The University of Maryland library of to- day is a far cry from that of the early days of the school ' s existence. A search for the ear- liest records of the Uni- versity of Maryland Library yields results from the Catalog of 1872-73, which men- tions a reading room for general and agricultu- ral periodicals and newspapers of the state. By 1886 the library contained several hundred books, the Literary Society probably fifteen hundred, and the private libraries of the pro- fessors as many more, all accessible to stu- dents " under proper conditions. " It is inter- esting to note that as recently as 1905 the librarian, who served also as executive clerk, was in attendance at the library only two hours a day. Today the University Library at College Park contains more than 70,000 volumes, is open eighty-two hours a week and has a staff of ten persons. « 14 » H. L. Crisp, Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds H. A. Russell, Chief Engineer During this year the University received more than 600 periodicals from all parts of the world, and an average of 1,000 volumes were added each month to its shelves. CAMPUS AND BUILDINGS The number of new buildings on the cam- pus testifies to the University ' s rapid growth during recent years. With intelligent fore- sight in location of buildings, and improve- ment of grounds, the twenty-eight structures, placed as they are, make a campus that not only has beauty but also individuality. How the campus will appear in a few more years is a matter of speculation, but as a sub- stantial amount of money has been appro- priated for a building program it will natur- ally be more beautiful and the facilities of the University will be increased. One of the new structures scheduled on the building program is a men ' s dormitory which will be erected soon in the area be- tween Sylvester Hall and the Gym-Armory. An addition to the Engineering Building is planned which, when completed, will cause the present structure to face on three sides, fronting towards the Arts and Sciences Build- ing. There is a possibility that the College of Arts and Sciences may be housed in the com- pleted Engineering Building. Tentatively new guarters are expected for the Home Economics Building. The University will also be presented with an addition to the Infir- mary, and possibly a new building altogether. In order that it may be more centralized and not dependent upon the basement of the Agriculture Building and other places on the campus for its headguarters. General Service will have a new building. Further- more, the much discussed Rossbourg Inn, now awaiting its turn for campus improvement, will be restored and remodeled very shortly. Operators at the Univer- sity Switchboard.

UP THE HILL TO EIGHT-TWENTIES ON A FROSTY MORNING THROUGH THE TREES ON THE CREST OF THE HILL RETIRED FACULTY Seven widely known faculty members of the University were retired from active serv- ice last fall. In recognition of their long years of association with the University, their col- leagues honored them with a retirement din- ner, which was held on January 6th in the campus Dining Hall. The dinner was pre- sided over by Dr. Byrd, who had been a stu- dent under a number of the retiring members, and the life and service of each member was lauded by their friends and faculty asso- ciates. Patterson Pierson Taliaferro Spann McDonnell Gwinner In point of service, the oldest faculty mem- ber honored during the evening was Dr. Harry J. Patterson, who retired as Dean of the College of Agriculture and Director of the Experiment Station. Dr. Patterson came to College Park as chemist in the Experiment Station in 1888 and during the intervening years rose rapidly to a position of prominence in Maryland agriculture. The next man in point of service was Dr. Henry B. McDonnell, who first came to Col- lege Park as Professor of Agricultural Chem- istry and State Chemist in 1891. One year later he was made head of the Department of Chemistry and in 1923 was appointed Pro- fessor of Research. Dr. W. T. L. Taliaferro, who came to Col- lege Park in 1892, was next to be lauded. He was Acting Dean of the Division of Agri- culture from 1915 to 1917 and served for many years as Professor of Farm Manage- ment. One of the most scholarly men on the campus. Dr. Taliaferro is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, and Beta Theta Pi. Dean A. N. Johnson, of the College of En- gineering, was retired after active service from 1920 to 1936. Dean Johnson became head of the College of Engineering follow- ing an outstanding career as a highway en- gineer. He enjoys a national reputation in engineering circles and in 1933 was awarded the Bartlett award for the outstanding con- tribution to highway progress. Professor Harry Gwinner also enjoyed a long record at College Park, having come to the old Maryland Agricultural College in 1895. He was made associate professor in 1898 and full professor two years later. From 1929 on Professor Gwinner confined all of his time to instruction in engineering mathe- matics. Professor C. J. Pierson, another retiring faculty member, became associated with the department of Entomology and Zoology in 1916. During his years of work in the depart- ment he made many contributions to insect morphology and impressed all with his devo- tion to his profession. Professor James T. Spann, of the College of Engineering, came to College Park in 1917. As Professor of Mathematics he made many friends among students and faculty and will long be remembered by those who were asso- ciated with him. DEAN OF THE FACULTY Dr. Thomas H. Taliaferro, who has been with the University of Maryland since 1907, was appointed last fall as Dean of the Faculty, Dr. Thomas H. Taliaferro, Dean of the Faculty 17 » The Arts and Sciences ' cupola points nr ajestically to the sky a newly created position, established for the purpose of bringing faculty and administra- tion closer together. Dr. Taliaferro was selected for the position because of his wide experience in adminis- trative and faculty affairs, and because of the many responsible positions he has held in the University. For many years Dr. Taliaferro was active in the affairs of the College of Engineering, hav- ing been appointed Professor of Civil Engi- neering in 1907. From 1916 to 1920 he was Dean of the College. In 1927 he was made -f m n L. B. Broughton Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and last fall saw him advance still further to Deanship of the Faculty. COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES Dean L. B.

The year 1937-38 has been one of change for the College of Arts and Sciences, both in faculty and administration. Dr. L. B. Broughton, head of the Chemistry Depart- ment, now occupies the suite at the end of the hall marked, " Office of the Dean, " while new department heads, along with additional professors and instructors, have been added to the college personnel. Faculty members, both old and new, have had a busy and successful year. From their pens have come some of the best text ma- terial and literature in the country. Books and articles of all varieties and descriptions have been published. In the realm of pure science the outstanding contribution was Dr. Dantzig ' s " Aspects of Science, " which drew warm praise from critics including the emi- nent Dr. Einstein. The English department took high honors in the Arts, as to general excellence of work produced. " The American Mind, " by Dr. Warfel, done in collaboration with two facul- First year chemistry Advanced work in the sciences « ]9 » ty members of Yale University, was univer- sally acclaimed the outstanding textbook of the year. Poetry of Dr. House was published and favorably reviewed in a recent anthology entitled " The Poets of Maryland. " In the field of history, Dr. Strakhovsky pro- duced a masterful book on the " Origins of American Intervention in North Russia " ; while Dr. Crothers published the " History of the Acadians in South Carolina. ' ' Economics had a busy year with the contribution of Dr. Gruchy ' s book on " Supervision and Control of Virginia State Banks, " sharing first honors with numerous articles written by Dr. Stevens for leading periodicals in the United States, China, and India. Dr. Stevens, new head of the Economics Department, brings to Mary- land a world-wide reputation gained in America and the Orient. In China he served as technical advisor to the Central Govern- ment in Nanking. The Department of Political Sciences was active with works by Dr. Howard, Dr. Stein- meyer, and Dr. Bone attracting considerable attention. Dr. Broughton ' s Chemistry Staff was well represented in the world of science. Fifteen scientific papers and a United States patent bear witness to its industry in research. Dr. Drake, Dr. Duvall, and Dr. Welsh figured largely in three publications of the organic chemistry division during the past year; while in physical chemistry, papers were Landmark of the past, Morrill Hall The Chemistry Building airs prepared by Dr. Nelson, Dr. Haring, Dr. Hart, and Dr. White. The patent on the sep- aration of beryllium from aluminum was granted to Dr. White and Dr. Parent, experi- menting m the Inorganic Division of Chem- istry. The Department of Speech gained head- lines throughout the nation by inaugurating the first radio school of its kind in the country in conjunction with the Columbia Broadcast- ing System. Through its facilities students are trained for careers in the field of radio. Other departments, notably Modern Lan- guage and Psychology, have been active. Dr. Falls and Dr. Prahl, of the modern lan- guage division, have contributed to various programs and reviews. The Department of Classical Language has been revived under Dr. Highby. Psychology has had a thorough renovation in its curriculum and faculty per- sonnel as this department is now given over to the study of the applied phases of psy- chology. The new chairman is Dr. A. G. Jenkins, formerly of Cornell University and author of " Psychology in Business and In- dustry. " Both Dr. Jenkins and his co-workers of the psychology staff have presented papers during the past year at psychology meetings or conferences and have published articles in contemporary scientific journals. It is interesting to note the volume and, what is more important, the quaUty of the work turned out by the faculty members of the Arts and Sciences College. Rarely have Maryland men so distinguished themselves and the University. Dean S. S. Steinberg COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Dean — S. S. Steinberg, B.E., C.E. Professors — Myron Creese, B.S., E.E.; R. B.

On the campus there may be some doubt about which course is most difficult, but ask the boys who are often seen gazing from the Engi- neering Building windows between classes and their only doubt will be as to whether it is civil, electrical, or mechanical engineering. The engineering curriculum is designed to give vigorous technical training. All engi- neers in good standing must carry at least 18 credit hours and it is not uncommon for some to carry as many as 21. School work outside of class sometimes requires study into the small hours of the morning, but when the engineering student graduates from the Uni- versity of Maryland, he is qualified to prac- tice his profession in every state of the nation. The College of Engineering has advanced Work in three branches of Engineering — Civil, Electrical, Mechanical ENGINEERING FACULTY Back row, left to right Wikstrom, Hodgins Hoshall, Ernst, Allen, Ingalls, Huckert, Lin dahl. Front row: Lowe Pyle, Nesbit, Steinberg, Creese, Machwart m r RELAXATION IN FRONT OF THE ENGINEERING BUILDING in recent years to a point of prominence among engineering schools. Directed by Dean S. S. Steinberg, there have been added to the College during the past two years twenty instructors, all of whom have ad- vanced degrees together with wide practi- cal experience. With this added personnel, it has been possible to strengthen the courses in the three branches of engineering already established and add to the College the newly- formed department of Chemical Engineering. Last fall the curricula in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering were accredited by the Engineers ' Council for Professional De- velopment. This ranks the College of Engi- neering among the very best in the country. Educational efforts of the College have also extended beyond the Maryland campus, as the Engineering auditorium this year was the scene of four short courses for adult engi- neers. In addition, much has been done in order to develop the Engineering Experiment Station in cooperation with the industries of the state and nation. Supplementing improvements of a strictly academic nature, the College has given en- couragement to extra-curricular engineering activities. The Engineering Student Council has greatly enhanced faculty-student rela- tionships, one of its accomplishments being the scheduling of tests so that no student will be given more than one a day. There have been recently introduced into the College three student chapters of na- tional engineering societies, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American In- stitute of Electrical Engineers, and the Ameri- can Society of Mechanical Engineers. The University Radio League for short wave com- munication with other institutions was organ- ized by Maryland ' s College of Engineering. With these facilities for training, the grad- uate of the College of Engineering leaves Maryland with a mind trained to deal with engineermg matters in a manner that will make him an asset to society, and a man in a man ' s occupation.

The College of Education was organized at the University of Maryland in 1917, its pur- pose being principally to train high school teachers, supervisors, and school administra- tors. During twenty years of existence, its in- fluence has been felt far beyond the Mary- land campus, as many students now attending the University were once taught in high schools by College of Education graduates. This year more than seventy students gradu- ate from the College, prepared to give others instruction in commercial, home economics, industrial, physical, general, and arts and sciences education. Although one of the youngest colleges on the campus, the College of Education has been a pioneer in raising scholastic stand- ards. For example, the College reguired a " C " average for admission into the Junior Class three years before this ruling was made general for the entire University. Further- more, no one is eligible to teach who does not rank in the upper four-fifths of the gradu- ating class. Dean Willard S. Small An outstanding feature introduced by the College of Education this year was a course in curriculum construction. This new course makes the University of Maryland a center for teachers desiring help in curriculum prob- lems. Among the improvements of the im- mediate future will be extension of graduate work leading to the doctor ' s degree, and; in the undergraduate field, improvement of op- portunities for training teachers in industrial and commercial education, music and art. Plans are also underway for improving and expanding instruction in physical education so that it will include preparation for com- munity recreation workers. Dean Willard S. Small, head of the College of Education, is also director of the Summer School of the University, which provides op- portunity for teachers, Maryland students, and others to take work of collegiate grade during summer months.

The College of Agriculture is the oldest college on the Maryland campus, as it is an outgrowth of the old Maryland Agricultural College which was established here in 1856. Projected as the second school of agriculture in the country, it has grown steadily through- out the years and maintains its rank as a leader in the field. This year saw considerable change in the faculty set-up of the College of Agriculture. Acting Dean Thomas B. Symons Acting Director of the Experiment Station, J. E. Metzger Assistant Dean H. F. Cotterman « 25 Dr. Thomas B. Symons, Director of the Exten- sion Service, was named Acting Dean of the College and Dr. H. F. Cotterman, former Pro- fessor of Agricultural Education, was ap- pointed Assistant Dean. Professor J. E. Metz- Observation in a greenhouse ger was made Director of the Experiment Station. In many respects the work of the College of Agriculture differs from that of other col- leges of the University. The scope of its ac- tivities embraces a fourfold program, which includes resident instruction, research, ex- tension and regulatory functions. Resident instruction is concerned with classroom activities at College Park. The fundamentals of good agriculture are pre- sented by instructors who are constantly sup- plementing their knowledge through research and study. In this way the student is certain to secure the benefits of up-to-date investi- gation along with the established principles of agricultural theory. The courses for resi- dent instruction are designed to provide trained personnel for agriculture and allie d industries. This phase of the work comes very largely under the supervision of Dr. Cotterman. Extra-curricular activities play a large part in the life of the agricultural student. The new Agricultural Student Council, a delegate body representing various student organiza- tions, assists in bringing about a closer co ordination between faculty and student body. Organizations which come under the super- vision of the Council are Alpha Zeta, Student Grange, Livestock Club, Future Farmers of America, Bacteriology Club, and the Agri- cultural Economics Society. Judging teams representing the University this year in livestock, dairy cattle, dairy prod- ucts and poultry were unusually successful in intercollegiate competition. This was espe- cially true of the Dairy Cattle Judging Team, which won the Collegiate Judging Contest in the Eastern States Exposition at Springfield, Massachusetts, and led the country in judg- ing Guernsey cattle at the National Dairy Show in Cleveland. Work on the various judging teams is considered of great value in AGRICULTURE FACULTY— Back row: Moran, Carrington, England, Ballard, Barker, Knight, Shaw, Poelma, Woods, Bamford, Rofhgeb, Black, Stabler, Holmes, Eppley, Williams, Oldenburg, White, Conover, Burdette, Walker, Magruder, Bogue, Bartram, Vial, Kemp, Lincoln, Posey, Hamilton, Downey, Bland- ford, Poffenberger, Worthington, Woods, Thomas, Brueckner, Taliaferro, Jenkins, Meade, Thurston, Reed, Chase, DeVault, Vierheller, Norton, Burkhardt, Ingham, Carpenter, DeVolt, Teeter, Langford, Madigan, Quigley, Berry, Walker, Ikeler, Abrams, Hughes, Coddington, Jenkins, Hunter, Snyder, Walls, Jehle, McPheeters, Ditman, Brown, Emerson Front row: Evans, Krewatch, Nystrom, Cory, Jull, Symons, Keller, Byrd, Patterson, Cotterman, Metzger, Oswald, Appleman, Shoemaker, Temple, Schrader THE HORTICULTURE BUILDING supplementing classroom work and all stu- dents are urged to participate in this form of activity. As Director of the Extension Service, Act- ing Dean Symons is in immediate charge of a department which has representatives in all parts of the state. With a county agent and a home demonstration agent in each of the twenty-three counties and specialists at College Park, results of scientific research carried on at the University of Maryland and elsewhere are made available to rural people on their farms and in their homes. In like manner, problems confronting the farmers of the state are brought to the University for consideration and study. The research phases of the College are organized in the Experiment Station under Professor Metzger. Personnel of this organi- zation is made up almost entirely of persons who divide their time between teaching and research. In this way many young men hold- inggraduate assistantships and rank of instruc- tor are able to continue their studies and be- come experienced in methods of investigation. The Experiment Station conducts investiga- tions along lines of practical value and through its efforts the frontiers of agricultural knowl- edge are being constantly extended.

The influence of this College is being felt throughout every section of the state as well as on the campus. Results of research at the Experiment Station are helping to open up new lines of endeavor for the agriculturist, the Extension Service is carrying this infor- mation to the people of the state, and by turn- ing out competent and scientifically trained men, there is developed a richer and more intelligent rural Maryland.

The College of Flome Economics is the newest college in the University, having been organized in 1918 with one division and an enrollment of five students. Progressing through the years under Dean M. Marie Mount, the College now has three divisions and an enrollment of more than two hundred students. The objective of the College is to provide training for those interested in be- coming teachers, dietitians, restaurant and cafe managers, demonstrators, homemakers, textile specialists, designers, and buyers of clothing in department stores. Several new instructors were added to the staff this year, making possible the introduc- tion of courses which have broadened and strengthened the curricula. One innovation was a new curriculum of practical arts which is designed for students interested in crea- tive, selective and promotional positions in the fields of clothing and art. A phase of the work provides opportunity for professional experience in retail stores. Other new courses are advanced food preparation and interior decoration, crafts, merchandise dis- play, and textile microscopy. Last November, Alpha Zeta Chapter of Omicron Nu, national Home Economics So- ciety, was installed through the effort of this College. Two faculty members, six seniors, HOME ECONOMICS FACULTY Standing: Kessinger, Kirkpatrick, Curtiss, McNaughton, Smith, Barnes Seated: Welsh, Mount, McFarland and eleven alumnae were initiated in the chapter at that time. During the year the College presented its Annual Mother ' s Day program. Mothers of the students were guests of the College and educational exhibits, style shows, and demon- strations were presented by the students. Plans are now underway for the new Home Economics building, which will provide ad- ditional space for classes in foods prepara- tion, nutrition and dietetic investigation, nurs- ery school, art laboratories, textile testing laboratories and classrooms. With these added facilities, the College looks forward to further and better service to the students of the state. Dean M.

Of this number, 226 students were registered in Summer School and 362 carried courses during the regular session at College Park. « 29 » It was expected that 17 candidates would complete requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy degree, and from 70 to 75, re- quirements for Master ' s degree. Dr. H. O. Appleman is Dean of the School. A recent survey reveals that the majority of students who have received Doctor of Philosophy degrees from the University of Maryland hold teaching and research posi- tions in colleges, universities, industrial re- search laboratories and state experiment sta- tions. The majority of those who receive Masters ' degrees, if they do not continue work for the Ph.D. degree, find employment in the public school system, but a large num- ber are employed in other occupations re- quiring special training beyond that received in undergraduate work. The addition of several outstanding schol- ars to the graduate faculty has enabled some Maryland research in the Graduate School Dean C. O. Appleman departments to expand their graduate work, and a few departments are offering this year or next, for the first time, a major graduate program leading to advanced degrees. Next year the University will offer a number of graduate fellowships in cooperation with the United States Bureau of Mines and the Bureau of Fisheries.

This means that the unit is fulfilling in every respect its duty as a part of the National De- fense System in which land grant colleges provide trained officers for mobilization in time of need. The organization boasts an outstanding chapter of Pershing Rifles, a military hon- orary fraternity for men in ranks; and an active chapter of the commissioned officers ' honorary fraternity, Scabbard and Blade. A number of well-drilled companies, one more than last year, and an excellent band round out this division of the department ' s activi- ties. All are commanded by student officers. By this method they are taught the lessons of discipline and obedience necessary in han- dling groups of men. A capable staff of army officers instruct the students, and the results obtained are the measure of their success. ATHLETIC BOARD Standing: Pollock, Kemp, Eppley Sitting: Richardson, Broughton, Cory The War Department inspection and mili- tary competitions last year were carried on in a heavy rain. For more than three hours, all events were executed under the most un- favorable conditions. However, with quiet determination and business-like efficiency, the men went on to win the War Department award. To the inspectors it was a visible and impressive demonstration of the very finest kind, a self-discipline produced by team spirit. This same team spirit still guides the R.O.T.C. ATHLETIC BOARD Five veteran members make up the Mary- land Athletic Board. They are Dr. L. B. Broughton, chairman; Professor Charles S. Richardson, Professor Geary Eppley, Dr. Ernest N. Cory, and Dr. William B. Kemp. The Board handles the financing of all ap- proved sports at Maryland and all contracts with other schools for games and meets. It arranges sports schedules, and guides the school policy concerning intramural sports and athletic relations with other institutions. The chairman represents the University at all official Southern Conference gatherings, at which time current problems facing the conference are discussed. Largely through the efforts of the Athlehc Board, the Southern Conference Boxing Tournament was held on this campus the last two years.

Also the sched- ule of classes was rearranged so as to eliminate as many ninth hour courses as possible and thus lengthen the afternoon recreation period. While the Committee is not ad- ministrative, one of its primary functions is the recognition of all Adele H. Stamp, Dean of Women Geary Eppley, Dean of Men pose is to aid in developing a well- rounded and harmonious student life on the campus. Whenever a problem arises, the respective members of the Committee, who are assigned jurisdiction over that particular phase of student life, meet informally and talk the matter over. Usually a solution is found without further deliberation. Stu- dents may consult the Student Life Committee on any matter in which it can give assistance.

COMMITTEE ON RELIGIOUS AF- FAIRS AND SOCIAL SERVICE Realizing that a well-balanced individual must develop spiritually as well as intellec- tually, the Administration has given active support to religious activities on the campus. As a result the Committee on Religious Af- fairs and Social Service has been created for the purpose of encouraging the formation and work of student denominational groups and to establish contacts with the pastors of neighboring towns. 34 PUBLICATIONS ADVISORY BOARD Harman, Williams, Carrington The Committee is composed of Dr. T. B. Manny, chairman; Dr. W. B. Kemp, Dr. C. E. White, Professor G. D. Quigley, Professor F. W. McFarland, and Professor Geary Eppley. The Committee maintains contacts with state and national reUgious organizations and brings the work of these groups to the cam- pus through rehgious services. During the year, four denominational meetings were held at which prominent ministers and lay- men spoke. PUBLICATIONS ADVISORY BOARD As publications sometimes need aid and sometimes restraining force, the Publications Advisory Board was created to help students in staff, editorial, and business problems, and freguently to harness impulses by censor- ship. Dr. Susan B. Harman, of the English De- partment; Mr. Ralph Williams, Assistant Dean of Men and Chairman of the Board, and Mr. O.

As his Sophomore brother had proved an arrogant and troublesome fellow, the young Freshman welcomed October 30th, for it was the day of his revenge — the Freshman-Soph- omore struggle. The Freshmen administered a thorough dousing to the Sophomores, who protested at great length; and thus won the right to discard their rat hats. Rushing came and went and the Greek let- ter lodges took a record number of neophytes from the ranks of the Freshman Class. An outstanding event of the Class of ' 41 was the Freshman Prom, with Zel Smith and his popular Pennsylvanians as the music- makers. The Gym- Armory was gayly deco- rated with the class colors, maroon and gray, and was transformed into an attractive ball- room. The young Freshman had by this time lost all earlier fears. He had made many friends, was proud that a record number of Freshman girls had been admitted to Alpha Lambda Delta, that the Freshman athletic teams and other accomplishments of his classmates had been so successful.

For a while he felt lost at the Univer- sity, but made acquaintances gradually and began to feel at home on " the hill. " This past September, when last year ' s Freshman returned to Maryland, he came as a Soph- omore, determined, that he was to be looked upon no longer as a lowly ' ' rat ' ' . He remembered how he had been made to take midnight promenades over the campus clad in his pajamas and to do other uncalled-for things, so he decided he might as well have some fun with the incom- ing class. Rat rules were so 40 » lA £L e . . ' f, . Ai ' H iJ IV ' effectively enforced that at the annual Soph-Frosh tug-o ' -war half the Freshman Class on their side of the rope pulled the Sophomore, with his twenty- nine pals, through Paint Branch, ending the rat rules. The year culminated in the Sophomore Prom, which went above all expectations. The Class of 1940 secured an up- and-coming orchestra directed by Earl Mellen, who played for the Junior-Senior German, Ross- bourg, and Senior Ball in 1937. With such eventful years be- hind him, the Sophomore looks forward to a better year as a Junior in 1939. Thirty Sophs vs. the Freshman Class « 41 » Eleanor Powell and Ray Bolger dance inr pron-iptu at tKe Junior Prom THE JUNIOR i D, V e iT ,aj : J.HE Junior thought back over his past three years. He remembered that fall of 1935 when he had donned his " rat " hat and had been soundly soaked in Paint Branch with the rest of his classmates. There was the Freshman Prom, the first of a series of top-notch dances sponsored by the Class of ' 39. Dr. Byrd was appointed President of the University, the new Arts and Sciences Building stretched out that walk between classes, and the girls moved into the new dormitory. Then came his Sophomore year, and with it, the too vigorous " ratting " that led to the abolishment of the system. The Bureau of Mines Building raised its twelve chimneys to the north. The class carried on its tradition of excellent dances by having a " name ' ' band for the Sophomore Prom. When the old water tower, center of countless Frosh-Soph strug- gles, went to its doom as scrap iron that spring, it bore to the end the numerals of the Class of ' 39. Everyone had said his Junior year should be his best. There had been the most looked- forward-to event in his college career — the Junior Prom, with Russ Morgan ' s band, and guest movie stars to pick the beauty queen. New departments had been added to the col- leges, new professors to the faculty, and new clubs to the list of extra-curricular activities. Another year of classes, dances, athletics, and club meetings was over. A year from now he ' d be graduating. Robert Benbow Vice-President Fredericka Waldman Secretary James Pitzer President r i .% ft ( i A%M « " « bert Walton Charles Downey President Treasurer Mildred Hearn Paul Peffer Seretary Vice-President THE SENIOR J. HE Senior entered the University of Maryland a short four years ago, shy in his strange surroundings and excited over the new experiences av aiting him, but deter- mined to make the most of his hfe on the campus. Like all his classmates, he quickly dis- carded his rat cap after helping to pull his immediate superiors through Paint Branch. This victory impressed the upper classmen v ith the fact that here was a class really worth noticing. The ' 38 graduate, after a,ttending rush functions at various fraternities on the cam- pus, acquired a pledge pin. With his ability as an athlete, and his interest in some of the 44 many clubs on the hill, he started his climb as a campus leader. As a Sophomore, he returned to college to find Dr. Byrd had been appointed as the new President of the University. With that same tug-of-war ability shown in the Freshman year, the class put the Fresh- men in their places and dragged them through the water to win the annual struggle again. The Sophomore Prom showed that these lads and lassies were as efficient in promoting social functions as in other under- takings. When his Junior year rolled around, the graduate of ' 38 found he could now attend the Junior Prom in his own right, and a real prom it was, with Bob Crosby ' s orchestra fur- nishing the music. Juniors and Seniors trip- ping the light fantastic. By this time many of the members of the Class of ' 38 occupied the limelight on the campus — on publications, in dramatics, on varsity teams, and in student governing bodies and honorary fraternities. Almost before he knew it, the Senior found that his last year of college had rolled around. It was 1938. During the year prominent or- ganizations gave bigger and better dances, All-University Night increased in fame, the Footlight Club presented more plays, and the " Diamondback " was published semi- weekly. The faculty restored the rule reguir- ing Seniors to take exams just in time to make sure that the ' 38 graduate would have to take his. Graduation; and the Senior dons his cap and gown, wishing that he did not have to leave so soon. . . and the best o£ luck.

SCHOLARSHIP HONORARIES OTUDENTS, by choice, may participate in varied types of activities during their college careers, but there is one thing they all must do in common — study. The men and women who shoulder the responsibility of leading the world in its work are those who carefully sharpen and enlarge their mental abilities. " The Terrapin " pays honor to those who, during their years at Maryland, have labored with outstanding success in this direction. « 75 PHI KAPPA PHI Honorary Scholarship Fraternity Founded at the University of Maine in 1897 Established at the University of Maryland in 1920 i HI KAPPA PHI was first organized at the University of Maine in 1897 and now has a total roll of forty-nine chapters throughout the country. The Maryland charter was granted in 1920 and since that date has elected nearly five hundred persons to membership. Elections are held twice each year, one in the fall and the other in the spring. In the fall, election eligibility is limited to the high Senior in .each college, while in the spring election new members are selected from among those students ranking scholastically in the upper eighth of the graduating class. Members are selected from all the colleges in the University regardless of the line of study they are pursuing. The society has for its primary purpose the encourage- ment of scholarship and development of character. It supports the original purpose for which institutions of higher learning were established, and attempts to stimu- late mental achievement through the opportunity for membership and by offering a limited number of fellow- ships each year to the most promising new members. A secondary objective of the society is to bind alumni more closely to their alma mater, to furnish an additional bond to friendship formed in college, and to interest the members of the organization in the promotion of higher standards of education HIGH SENIORS Andrews, Engineering Brodsky, Arts and Sciences Burrier, Home Economics Danforth, Education Grodjesk, Agriculture 76 » Members of the Faculty CO.

It bears the same relationship to engineering as Phi Beta Kappa does to literary scholarship and Sigma Xi to original research in science. At present there are seventy chapters in as many different colleges and technical schools in Ameri- ca, with a membership of over thirty thousand. The object of the fraternity is to recognize those who have attained high scholarship as under- graduates or alumni, and to foster a spirit of lib- eral culture in the technical and scientific schools of America. Tau Beta Pi on this campus is the highest achieve- ment that an undergraduate engineer can attain. Membership in the association is a decided honor and one for which it is well worth striving. There is no finer thing for the young engineer than to be able to say that he can wear the " Bent of Tau Beta Pi.

Ai .LPHA ZETA, national honorary agri- cultural fraternity, was founded in 1897 at Ohio State University. The local chap- ter of the fraternity was established on the Maryland campus in 1920. Since its in- ception the Maryland chapter has initiated more than one hundred and fifty men, representing all branches of work carried on in the College of Agriculture. To be eligible for membership in Alpha Zeta, the agriculture student must rank in the upper two-fifths of his class and must show definite attributes of character and leadership. The local chapter awards a medal an- nually to that Freshman in the College of Agriculture who attains the highest scho- lastic average in his first year of work. The purpose of the award is to encourage high scholastic endeavor during the Fresh- man year, the time when good study habits should be formed. The local chapter of the fraternity held its annual initiation banguet in Washing- ton this spring, at which time new mem- bers were inducted in the presence of active and alumni members and executive officers of the national organization. .

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Al- pha Rho Chapter at Maryland, hav- ing been founded here in 1928. To be eligible for membership in Alpha Chi Sigma, one must be a major in chemistry, have superior grades, and complete at least one and one-half years of the chemistry curriculum. The objects of the fra- ternity are to work for the advance- ment of chemistry as a science and as a profession, to aid its members in the attainment of their ambitions as chemists, to help fulfill social needs of its members, and to bring about a closer relationship between students and faculty. There are twenty Alpha Chi Sig- ma members in the University of Maryland faculty, eight of whom are charter members. Alpha Rho has contributed many great men of science. Some of these are mem- bers of faculties in this and other universities, while others have con- tinued in private research or com- mercial enterprises. t Burton Creamer Krynitsky McFarlane Miller Owens Pitzer Shelton Wharton 80 BETA ALPHA PS I TAU CHAPTER Professional Accounting Fraternity Founded at the University of Illinois in 1919 Established at the University of Maryland in 1934 President Warren Hughes Vice-President John Wolf Secretary-Treasurer .

This fraternity, which has been at the University for only two years, sponsored during the year a series of weekly talks by leading personnel directors of the vicinity and arranged inter- views with them for members of the Senior Class. In addition, prominent figures of the busi- ness world were brought to the campus to address the students. Outstanding among these were Carman Blough, chief accountant of the Securities Exchange Commission, and William Slattery, Washington director of the National Association of Cost Accountants. A novel feature of the year ' s program was an arrangement with an accountancy firm whereby four members of the fraternity were employed during the firm ' s rush season for a few weeks. « 81 » OMICRON NU Burrier Danforth Fisher Jenkins Wellington ALPHA ZETA CHAPTER Honorary Home Economics Fraternity Founded at Michigan State College in 1912 Established at the University of Maryland in 1937 President Ida Fisher Vice-President Shirley Danforth Secretary Mary Jenkins Treasurer Letitia Burrier Faculty M.

The fraternity now has twenty-nine chapters; the last chapter. Alpha Zeta, having been installed on the Maryland campus this year. The local Maryland chapter was formerly known as Theta Gamma. Remembering how hard the College of Home Economics worked for the installation of this fraternity, and realizing their own good fortune, the members have formulated a number of plans for the advancement of home economics. Beginning soon after installation members offered their serv- ices in tutoring guite a few home economics Freshmen who were having trouble with their studies. In March, feeling that an event to improve acguaintanceship among co-eds might be welcomed, they sponsored a co-ed costume party, which they have planned to make an annual affair, using the proceeds to establish a loan fund for home economics students. As an incentive to higher scholarship they awarded a cup in June to the home economics Freshman having the highest average for the year.

The governing body is the Executive Council, which is composed of campus lead- ers who represent the thoughts of the student body. Problems per- taining to men and women students are handled by the Men ' s and Women ' s Leagues acting in conjunction with the Executive Council. The objective of the Student Government Association is the bet- terment of the University and this purpose is carried out by main- taining a close student-faculty relationship and by enacting laws which adhere to student and campus interests. The Executive Council has been especially proud this year of the fine relationship that has existed between the students and faculty. At the beginning of the school year, joint meetings were held between the Student Life Committee and the Executive Coun- cil, at which time problems of mutual interest were discussed. Elimination of cheating in examinations has been one of the prob- lems worked on during the year. In attempting to better student and campus interests, the Execu- tive Council has passed such legislation as it has deemed neces- sary under the existing conditions. The Council felt it advisable to limit the number of dances given on the campus and in so doing has increased the financial success and the importance of those dances permitted. With the advent of legalized slot machines, a new problem pre- sented itself. It was felt by the Council that these machines were neither good for the morale of the students nor did they help busi- ness in any of the establishments near the campus. Through the Executive Council ' s efforts and with the cooperation of local busi- ness men they were removed. During the course of the year, the Men ' s League was altered both in structure and purpose. Proctors in the men ' s dormitories were made permanent members of the League. This enabled them to more adequately carry out the powers of jurisdiction over the students of Calvert and Sylvester Halls. The Men ' s League was further altered by decreasing its membership, which the Council felt would make for greater efficiency. When student enrollment increased in September, the traffic problem increased with it. A committee was then appointed to revise the traffic rules of the campus. It was quite successful in hav- ing the new rules approved and accepted by the traffic authorities. For several years the campus has been in need of a definite place for announcements of campus meetings. The Council attempted to remedy the situation by purchasing a bulletin board for the use of all larger organizations on the hill. Every year the Executive Council conducts a relief campaign for the benefit of the needy in and about College Park. This year the 86 ASSOCIATION Council ' s charity work was extended beyond College Park and a considerable sum of money was collected from the students to aid the President ' s Birthday Fund. Financing student activities also comes under the supervision of the Student Government Association. Publications, classes, Debate Club, Opera Club, and Glee Club are all financed through the student activities fee and budgeted to the different groups by the Executive Council.

I N 1934 the Student Government Association was divided into three major divisions. One of these divisions, the Men ' s League, was made responsible for the care and welfare of men in the dormitories. The Men ' s League is a self-governing body with the presiding officer elected by the male members of the student body. Students are represented in the league by daydodger repre- sentatives, vice-presidents of classes and three members of the Interfraternity Council. The administration is represented by proctors who live in the men ' s dormitories. The league strives to better accommodations and conditions for the students on the campus and in the dormitories by sup- porting constructive schemes for their improvement. In the four years of its existence, the league has been the major instrument for the maintenance of order in the dormitories. It has the authority to place a student on ' " campus " or probation, if such a penalty seems necessary. Surgent The Men ' s League occupies a position of importance in the student plan of self-government and at all times is in close contact with university officials and student body. « 88 » WOMEN ' S LEAGUE Ruth Lowry, President; Jean Paterson, Vice-President; Jane Kephart, Sec- retary; Bess Paterson, Recorder of Points; Lois Kuhn, Senior Class Representa- tive; Mary Bohlin, Junior Class Representative; Jane Legge, Sophomore Class Representative; Frances Rosenbusch, Freshman Class Representative; Helen Reindollar, Margaret Brent; Sarah Case, Margaret MacDonald, Dormitor y " B " ; Bernice Aring, Kappa Kappa Gamma; Mary Lee Ross, Kappa Delta; Harriet Cain, Delta Delta Delta; Elizabeth Smith, Alpha Xi Delta; Louise Tucker, Alpha Omicron Pi; Ethel Kaufman, Phi Sigma Sigma; Betty Bloom, Mildred Smith, Representatives, Dormitory " B " ; Mary Jenkins, Ann Griffith, Representatives, Margaret Brent; Eileen Kellermann, Betty Rawley, Representatives, Daydodgers; Betty Johnston, Marcia Ladson, Representatives at Large.

The officers of the league are elected by the women students of the University, and any woman student is privileged to attend a league meeting if she so desires. Aside from the regular activities of making and enforcing rules, assisting the dormitory housemothers and conducting house meetings, the league, this year, sent two delegates to the convention of the Women ' s Intercollegiate Association for Student Government, adopted an official key for league members, assisted the Dean in an orientation tea for freshmen women, and adopted a new constitution to fit the present needs of the Women ' s League.

A two-year campaign waged by the staff to give the campus superior news in a better collegiate publica- tion was climaxed early in October when the first edition of ' The Semi- Weekly Diamondback " appeared in student mail boxes. With its semi-weekly setup, " The Diamondback " became one of the few college papers of its type in the country, to be published twice weekly without direct faculty supervision or the support of a school of journalism. As a result of doubling the number of issues, a greater, more efficient staff was organized, and subseguently split into two separate groups, one editing the Tuesday edition and the other the Friday issue. This increase in staff membership created for the first time in " Diamondback " history an adeguate outlet for student expression and initiative. Because of increased space accruing from the pair of four-page issues in place of the past six-page weeklies, it became necessary for the staff to more expertly cover the campus. Rather than " pad " its stories to fill the increased space, the editorial board adopted a policy of giving much-needed publicity to the lesser known student organizations on the campus. By this policy was furnished the stimulus to revamp and revitalize several student groups which through the years had sunk into virtual stagnation. Along with the advance in news coverage, an increase in photography, engraving and features was made. Two staff cameramen were employed in addition to four feature columnists. As " The Semi-Weekly Diamondback " gained a firmer foothold on campus, it became unfor- tunately necessary to eliminate music and drama columns in order to allow space for news which had to be published. The so-called " dirt " column was done away with early in the first semester because it was considered to be ill-suited to a collegiate publication. Editorially, the policy of " The Diamondback " was relatively unchanged. Editorial col- umns were kept strictly within the circle of campus activity rather than treading the dangerous grounds of national political fields. Editorials were directed mainly toward improvement of conditions on campus which would directly benefit the university " family. " Probably the most radical change made under the semi-weekly plan was the revamping of make-up and headlines. Headline type was completely re- novated in order to promote faster reading and expedite work on the copy desk. Page make-up followed conservative rules in place of the " scare head " policies of many collegiate con- temporaries. Greater coverage was given all campus sports, from co-ed activities to all varsity endeavors. Intramural news was par- ticularly emphasized, although varsity sports received more publicity than in past years. The sports staff was increased to eight men so that the essential style diversification was created and maintained. Although the year 1937-38 can be modestly termed one of great success, " The Semi-Weekly Diamondback " is still in its infant stage and conseguently must be pampered for several years in order that a top-ranking collegiate newspaper can be produced. « 90 » Hoover Maslin Owens DIAMONDBACK STAFF Editor-in-Chief Robert E.

The magazine consists of original cartoons and editorial matter contributed by the students. The policy, inaugurated last year, of running in each issue a short story by some student was followed in every issue this year. These stories and a few other serious features keep " The Old Line " in the class of a semi-literary and semi-humorous publication. The editorial page, " The New Line, " is written by the editors and is the only feature to appear constantly in the magazine since its inception eight years ago. This year an attempt was made to bring the publication closer to student life and pages of candid photographs of campus activity were featured. Serious drawings are seldom used except in decoration or in story illustration. " The Old Line " makes a feature of original cartoons on any style or subject. Poetry has been often used in the magazine as well as short-column features. The cover is drawn by staff members and is in color. Each year an exchange issue is published. This number consists solely of jokes and car- toons which have been borrowed from other college magazines throughout the country. One of the most sensational features of the 1937-38 " Old Line " was a daring expose of its contemporary, " The Diamondback. " The column, " Around the Hill, " discontinued last year, was started again this term. The column is of a personal nature, and has to do with students ' " private lives. " When first inaugurated on the campus in 1930, " The Old Line " came out only four times during the school year. Then, as advertising and interest in the magazine increased, the number of issues was changed to six. Three years ago it was again expanded until now eight numbers are pre- pared each year.

The 1938 " Terrapin " was begun last May, when, by taking advantage of the spring foliage, a number of campus views were photographed. A warm day in early June saw a long session with the printer and engraver in the faculty adviser ' s office, where preliminary plans for the book were decided upon. Many hours during the summer were spent in looking through yearbooks from all over the nation in an attempt to assimilate new ideas of design and content and many more hours were spent working out definite plans that would be practical for " The Terrapin. " Beginning a week before fall registration, the editors, along with the faculty adviser, set out with several clear cut objectives. One of these was to print in the book a greater number of human interest pictures. The solution of this was the purchase of a good candid camera. A second objective was to cut down lost motion in ad- ministering work to staff members. This was accomplished by assigning certain sections of the book to associate editors. By such specialization these editors gained confidence in their abilities and were able to proceed with less hesitation than if they had worked on the entire book. In fact, the sys- tem worked so well that two other objectives were made pos- sible. More time was left to design each page of the book and for editing copy included in it. Profiting from ineffi- ciencies encountered during the year, new plans for im- proving next year ' s book have been formulated and ap- proved. Above all, the staff has worked throughout the year to give Maryland students the best in yearbooks. The editors hope that students feel the time and money used in pro- ducing the book have been well spent.

Under the ministrations of a none too large staff, the freshman bible developed through a long, lazy summer, chiefly through the efforts of Faculty Adviser and father confessor extraordinary Ralph. I. Williams, v ho spent many an hour urging the staff on towards the publication of the book. With the usual advice to Freshmen; a complete and corrected S.G.A. Con- stitution; rosters of fraternities, organizations, sororities, and honoraries; athletic records and schedules; and other features common to no other publication on the campus, the " M " Book, this year, was filled with the countless statistics and facts of campus organizations. Students who labored on the book were Lawrence G. Hoover, editor; Helen L. Reindollar, women ' s editor; Peggy Maslin, associate women ' s editor; John Freudenberger, sports editor, and others too modest to make their names known to the staff. Despite the fact that it is one of the smaller of the campus publications, the " M " Book does serve a purpose in introducing the University to the Freshmen. It also serves as a reference book, as it contains information found in no other school publication. « 96 • CALVERT DEBATE CLUB President Alvin Goldberg Vice-President George Eierman Secretary-Treasurer Faye Snyder Women ' s Manager Mildred Hearn Men ' s Manager Robert Bradley A KALEIDOSCOPIC view of the activities of the Calvert Debate Club reveals participation in numerous forensic events with schools throughout the East. Outstanding on the year ' s program was Maryland ' s participation in the Model Senate Association at Colgate University. The Calvert Debaters were represented by Allan Brown, Dan Prettyman, and Irving Phillips. From all indications the " senators " showed great promise of professional ability, being instrumental in the promulgation of several laws. Plans are rapidly being developed for the club to sponsor and manage a model legisla- ture on the campus, in which the high schools of the state will participate. The men ' s team, under the management of Bob Bradley, has had guite a busy season, having met such schools as Duke, Colgate, and American Universities and Washington College. The activities of the women ' s debate team cannot be overlooked, for which Millie Hearn has proved an efficient manager. The women ' s program culminated in representation in the Grand Eastern Forensic Tournament at Winthrop College, South Carolina. Last year in this same event the Calvert Debaters tied for first place. Several debates of the club have been given before neighboring high schools and over the radio station WCBM. Following the precedent set several years ago, the Calvert Debate Club awarded keys to the outstanding members, which were presented at its annual formal banguet. The success of this year ' s effort is due in a large measure to Mr. Warren Strausbaugh, newly appointed professor of speech, who, as adviser and director of the club, has given much inspiration and help.

MAKE-UP President Leon Yourtee Vice-President Alvin Goldberg Secretary Mildred Hearn Treasurer Arthur Greenfield FOOTLIGHT CLUB r OOTLIGHT CLUB activity during the past year has been of an experimental nature, with the local dramatic group revolutioniz- ing its previous play production policy. The major change made by the local his- trionic organization was the addition of a fourth play to its schedule. In previous years the Footlighters have operated on a three- vehicle basis, presenting their season opener in the late fall, and their remaining shows in the second semester. In the recently completed season the club offered three plays and one pay production to the campus theater-goers. Thus, although an increase in the play schedule was made, no additional expense was imposed on stu- dents. Selection of plays during the past year was made with an aim to provide the campus with a balanced dramatic bill of fare. The season opened with a light farcical comedy, " Petti- coat Fever. " The show served to bring out several new stars and played to packed houses for four nights. " Petticoat Fever " also marked the end of ten years of Footlight Left to right: Hutton, Goldberg, Hutton, Greenwood, Auerbach, Wharton, Stein, Small, Hunt, Yourtee, Langford, Jackson, Parce, Potts, Carver, Hearn, Smith, Ernest, Schutz, Groff, Greenfield, Kempton, Hardy. Hale Williams TWO MOMENTS IN " PETTICOAT FEVER ' BEHIND THE SCENES : mr - Club direction by Dr. Charles B. Hale. Dr. Hale was forced to resign as active head of the play group because of increased aca- demic duties. Among Dr. Hale ' s outstanding hits during his more than a decade of directing, were such popularly received efforts as " The Royal Family, " " Berkley Square, " " Death Takes a Holiday, " " No More Ladies, " " Holiday, " etc. The club will definitely miss his able and co- operative leadership in future years. Following " Petticoat Fever, " the Footlight- ers scheduled their most difficult assignment in several years. For their mid-winter play they carded " Night Must Fall. " The Emlyn Williams opus has been termed one of the most complicated and effective plays to be written, and requires skilled and painstaking histrionic ability. Modestly, the club can claim that " Night Must Fall " is one of the greatest successes in its years of campus playmaking. Immediately following its first night production, the pre- sentation played to packed and overflowing houses. The last two nights saw approxi- mately three hundred persons turned away from the University Auditorium because of a lack of seating accommodations. In cooperation with the President ' s Birth- day Fund Committee, the organization took its play to the Wardman Park Theater for a two-night stand. Poor publicity held the opening night audience down, but the sec- ond night was marked by a capacity house. To gain money for its final production, the club presented a novel type of drama, " The Three scenes from the biggest hit in many years, " Night Must Fall. " Night of January 16, " as its annual pay play. Such features as selecting a jury of audience members and having the witnesses in the per- formance sit with the patrons were enthusi- astically received by the playgoers. During the run of the yearly pay opus, prominent University and State officials were among those to sit in the jury box. Consid- erable interest was aroused in the verdicts rendered, and material was supplied for countless campus bull sessions. A novelty offered by the show was that no matter which verdict was given, the play was written so that it would fit. For its last production the club produced " Outward Bound, " a play which has been acclaimed by critics the best of the century. The club was fortunate in securing Ralph I. Williams, assistant in student activities and former assistant director, as successor to Dr. Hale. Williams scored an immediate success with " Night Must Fall " and followed up with a smash hit, " The Night of January 16. " " The Night of January 16th " Principals of •Mile.

Opposite her, budding Freshman tenor, Harry Nichter, in the lead- ing male role, scored his first success. Dave Stoddard, as the croch- ety old Count, gave the audience a clever character interpreta- tion, while Tom Wharton clicked in his portrayal of a genial mil- « 102 » Cast lionaire from Chicago. Martha Corcoran, as Bebe the danseuse, was another highHght of the show. For the first time in its history the Opera Club sponsored a re- turn engagement, featuring Geoffrey O ' Hara, noted composer and lecturer. The concert, presented from a specially constructed stage in the Gym- Armory, included special music by the Men ' s Glee Club and the Women ' s Chorus. During the fall semester the Opera Club also supported a con- cert by the Men ' s Glee Club and the Women ' s Chorus, given in the Agriculture Auditorium. Cast of " Mile.

MEN ' S GLEE CLUB President David Stoddard Vice-President Joseph Franzoni Secretary-Treasurer .... Alfred Whiton Business Manager . . . Joseph Haimovicz OTRIVING to regain some of the glory and prestige associated with former Maryland Glee Clubs, the present organization has en- joyed its most successful season since its re- Harlan Randall organization under Professor Harlan Randall three years ago. The presentation of con- certs in localities which had not been visited before won many new friends and admirers for the Glee Club. Early in November the season was formally opened with a concert in Rockville, followed shortly thereafter with an engagement in Damascus. In December the club appeared at the fall tapping ceremony of Omicron Del- ta Kappa in conjunction with the Women ' s Chorus. Just before the Christmas vacation the group was entertained at a dinner and dance at the National Park Seminary — a never-to-be-forgotten occasion. After a lull in activities provided by mid- year examinations, the Glee Club was heard on the All-University Night program and a few weeks later in the high school auditori- um in Bel Air. It also provided the major part of the music at the Annual Floral Style Show in the Coliseum. « 104 » In the early spring the club made an ex- tended tour of the Eastern Shore. The group visited the two leading Shore towns, Salis- bury and Cambridge, in which it scored suc- cessful hits. Music critics acclaimed the Old Line singers as the most popular tune wielders to perform on the eastern side of the Chesapeake in several years. In addition to the work of the Glee Club, the University Quartet, composed of Frank Stevenson, Al Whiton, Joseph Haimovicz, and David S toddard, completed an active and successful year. The harmonizers in their first year of activity sang on an average of two to three times per week and received favorable comment in all engagements. WOMEN ' S CHORUS Harlan Randall Director Mrs. Jessie Blaisdell Accompanist Ethel Enderle Secretary V NE of the most prominent organizations on the University of Maryland campus this year has been the Women ' s University Cho- QUARTET Stoddard, Haimovicz, Whiton, Stevenson rus. With the cooperation of the Men ' s Glee Club, the chorus has given many excellent performances, both on and off the campus. At the Alumni Mixer following the Home- coming game the combined clubs gave their first performance. A concert in December was well attended by the students and gen- eral public, while in January the chorus par- ticipated in a broadcast over WFBR which was sponsored by the Women ' s Club of America. February was a busy month for the organization. Early in the month they entertained a capacity crowd at the Ritchie Coliseum, thus contributing their bit to the success of All-University Night.

The biggest musical event of the year on the campus was the concert featuring the singing and playing of Geoffrey O ' Hara, the famous American concert pianist and enter- tainer. During the month of March, the com- bined groups performed at the Maryland Day ceremonies, and also were the guests of the Maryland State Society at the Kennedy- Warren Hotel. Many audiences were delighted with the " Blue Danube Waltz " which featured an original dance by Betty Raymond. Zelma Truman also deserves praise for her work as a soloist. The main purpose of the club is to further musical education on the campus. Through the untiring efforts of Harlan Randall, direc- tor, and Mrs. Jessie Blaisdell, accompanist, the year 1937-38 has been guite a pleasant one for the girls interested in music at the University of Maryland. UNIVERSITY ORCHESTRA JLONG a crying need on the Maryland cam- pus, a University Orchestra has at last been formed under the direction of Fritz Maile. For two years a small group of musicians assembled for rehearsal from time to time. In February Harlan Randall, of the music department, secured funds and eguipment to launch this new musical venture in adeguate style. Several public appearances were made, particularly on Geoffrey O ' Hara ' s program in March, with an appreciable measure of success. It is to be hoped that with the growth of musical interest at the University the orchestra may assume its right- ful place in the school ' s extra-curricula life. 106 » Back row: Hanson, Dodson, Benton, Kefauver, Hart, Meng.

STUDENT BAND Ur I NIVERSITY OF MARYLAND football fans were accorded a double treat late last September at the St. John ' s football game. In addition to a smart, aggressive team, the students and alumni in the stands were entertained by the enlarged student band, completely outfitted with shiny new black and gold uniforms. The auspicious opening day promise of better things to come in the realm of band music was not belied as the year wore on with its customary round of activi- ties. Not only was the band much larger than in previous years but the guality of music rendered was better than ever. The growth of the band to a seventy-piece organization was not a chance occurrence. At registration time all incoming students with musical ability were reguested to leave their names with a representative of the band who was in attendance for that purpose. As a result the band started to function early in the fall, being organized shortly after school began, and interest in it was stim- ulated. Without the student band, football, basketball and other games would seem strangely dull, In addition, it supplied the music for All-University Night, con- certs, Maryland Day and other occasions. Membership in the band involves a great deal of hard work on the part of the student. Over eighty rehearsals and performances are given during the year, and members are required to attend three-quarters of these rehearsals to be eligible for a letter. A genuine love for band music, football trips, letters, and honorary keys for four-year members constitute the major inducements for joining this musical organization. Although the physical rewards are few, the returns in knowledge gained and services performed are considered sufficient remuneration by the members. « 107 » Standing: Kluckhuhn, Lee, Liberate, Miller, Hart, Steinmeyer.

NE of the most popular organizations on the Maryland campus is the International Rela- tions Club. Its organization was the result of a rising interest on the part of the students in current international problems. Under the leadership of Dr. Steinmeyer, an authority in the field of political science, the club was formed three years ago. It has progressed with age and now has a membership composed not only of students but also of faculty members. The prime attraction of this club is the prominent group of speakers that it annually brings to the campus. Some of the personages to speak this year were Sir Herbert Ames, former treasurer of the League of Nations; Dr. Fritz Ermarth, famous student of international relations; and Dr. Charles Pergler, former member of parliament in Czech oslovakia and minister to Japan, who discussed " Germany ' s Push to the East. " Informal round table discussions of world affairs and problems are held, out of which many interesting debates and arguments developed. To be an active member of this club is an education in itself. DER DEUTSCH VEREIN XvEORGANIZED in 1936, after a dormant period of three years, Der Deutsch Verein is again actively supported by students interested in German. This year the club pursued the policy of previous years in conducting the meetings at the homes of various members. Discus- sions of German literature and art were featured at the meetings. Also included in the activities of the German Club were lectures and mov- ies by outside guests and short plays in German given by the active members of the club. President ....

AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS President G. Clinton Brookhart Vice-President John R. Browning Secretary Robert H. Wettje Treasurer Elgin W. Scott i HE American Society of Civil Engineers is the oldest national engineering society in the United States, having been founded in 1852 for the advancement of engineering and archi- tectural knowledge and practice. The University of Maryland Chapter was organized here just two years ago. It embraces many of the numerous extra-curricular activities of the Engi- neering College, some of which are of a purely technical nature while others are of a social nature. The local student chapter during the year secured several outstanding engineers of the East as speakers for the regular monthly meetings. Among those who shared their practical experience with the Maryland neophytes was a graduate of the class of 1910, and vice-presi- dent of the J. E. Greiner Company of Baltimore. Other guest speakers were W. A. Van Duzer, Director of Vehicles and Traffic of Washington; and Dr. Frank Hess, of the United States Bureau of Mines. Two student members who presented lantern-lectures were John R. Browning and Thomas P. Wharton. They spoke on " Aerial Photographic Mapping " and " Mississippi Flood Control, " respectively. The A.S.C.E., not to be outdone socially by the other campus organizations, cooperated with the Engineering Council of the University in staging the first annual " Engineers ' Ball. " Preceding the dance was the third annual conference of the Student Chapters of Maryland and the District of Columbia, of which the Maryland Chapter was host. Four neighboring A.S.C.E. organizations were guests at the conclave and were taken on inspection trips to the Bureau of Standards, Greenbelt, Arlington Memorial Bridge, and Burnt Mills. « 109 » AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS Chairman Warner T.

IHE American Institute of Electrical Engineers was founded in 1884 when possibilities for an organization which would foster and encourage electrical engineering development were beginning to be recognized by the profession. The local branch, organized in 1936, is one of 119 similar groups that have been estab- lished in the leading educational institutions where courses in electrical engineering are given. The purpose of these branches is to provide an instrument to aid in the development of latent abilities of the students by participation in activities similar to those carried on by the institute members. Activities this year consisted for the most part of reading technical papers, prepared and delivered by student members. The branch cooperated with the Washington Section in staging College Night along with the branches at George Washington University and the Cath- olic University of America. AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS Chairman, Vernon Gray V.-Chr., Malcolm CoHison Sec, George Seeley Tres., Thomas Shaffer IHE student chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers was established this year on the University of Maryland campus. The installation culminated a campaign which the mechanical engineers had carried on for a number of years. The benefits of their per- sistent efforts are now being realized. The aim of this society is to acguaint the junior or senior mechanical engineering stu- dent with the outstanding developments and personalities in his chosen profession. Upon graduation, his membership is of inestimable value in reconciling him to his new environment. During the year the so- ciety ' s program has been guite varied. Social parties with games and dancing served as contrasts to tech- nical sessions of student lectures, motion pictures, guest speakers, field trips, and visits with neighboring societies. The year ' s ac- tivities were climaxed with a pleasure trip of some of the merribers to Toronto, Canada, in order to com- pete in the National Orga- nization ' s contest for the prizes awarded the out- standing student thesis in „ , ,„ „ w .

William Seabold Vice-President-Treasurer Allen E. Henkin Secretary Ann Carver L HE Bacteriological Society is one of two groups composing the organization known as Sigma Alpha Omicron, the other chapter being located at Washing- ton State. Membership of the club is selected from junior, senior, and graduate students who take bacteriology as a major and who have completed at least six semester hours of bacteriological work with an average of at least 2.5 in those courses. The highlight of the society ' s activities was its sixth annual banquet, which was held at Wesley Hall in Washington. This gathering was a most enjoyable one, with approximately sixty guests, including students, graduates, and faculty members with their wives present. The speaker was Dr. Sara E. Branham of the National Institute of Health, an outstanding investigator in the work on meningo- cocci, who delivered a very interesting talk on the developments in her field of ' research. Through such events the society attempts to fulfill its purpose by arranging discussions on topics of bacteriological interest, by stimulating and encouraging high scholarship, and by furthering a spirit of fellowship and cooperation among those who take this subject as a major. « 111 » Back row: Matthews, Sheibley, Clendaniel, Gordon, Gilbertson, Stiles, Gottwals, Merritt, McFarland, Ahalt, Jerome, Chance.

M STUDENT GRANGE President Albin Kuhn Vice-President Maxine White Secretary Dick Sutton Treasurer Clay Shaw JS4.EMBERSHIP in Student Grange is open to all students interested in agriculture and rural life. However, the activities of the club members bespeak more of a yen for action than the simple attachment to the charms of country life might indicate. During the past year the Grange aided in the promotion of the Agricultural Ball, which was held in the barn loft of the new dairy building. It also cooperated in the Fitting and Show- ing Exhibition held by the Livestock Club. Several members were recipients of the State Degree that is awarded for general excel- lence by the State Grange Organization. The Maryland unit is a chapter of the National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Hus- bandry, the oldest and only farm fraternity in the world. LIVESTOCK CLUB OIXTY-NINE active members are on the roll of the Livestock Club, one of the most active organizations on the campus. The membership is drawn from those students of the College of Agriculture who take animal and dairy husbandry as a major. The Livestock Club has a threefold purpose, namely, to stimulate interest in animal hus- bandry, to promote the fitting and showing of cattle by students on the campus, and to bring about a greater spirit of cooperation and friendliness among the agricultural students. During the past year the highlight of the club ' s activities was a Fitting and Showing Ex- hibition held on the Maryland campus in April. President . . Elmer Huebeck Secretary .

FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA President Charles Downey Vice-President . . E. Wayne Fitzwater Secretary Merle Garletts Treasurer .... Abram Z. Gottwals lOUNG men pursuing the study of vocational agriculture compose the membership of the Future Farmers of America. At present the Future Farmers of America has more than 350 chapters with 90,000 members in 47 states, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. The club is founded upon the principles of leadership, brotherhood, cooperation, and a love for rural life. The Maryland local chapter was organized in the spring of 1936 and is designed primarily for the students majoring in Agricultural Education who later expect to work with rural people. The club, in conjunction with the Student Grange, entered the " Big Apple " Float on Homecoming Day which won first place. An annual Field Day is sponsored by the local chap- ter in April. This year members cooperated with the Agricultural Council in giving a barn dance and in inaugurating a Father and Son Banguet which hereafter will be an annual affair. DAYDODGERS CLUB v O-EDS who do not live on the campus compose the membership of the Daydodgers Club. Through the club they are able to keep in contact with the various campus activities and to participate in college functions. To meet the social needs of the group, an interesting program was developed and carried out during the past year. Members of the club rented bicycles on one occasion and spent a most enjoyable afternoon cycling along the Potomac. At another time the girls tried their skill at bowling in one of the popular bowling alleys of Washington. A wiener roast also proved to be a great success, the menu consisting of the conventional hot dogs, apple cider, and toasted marshmallows. The program was cli- kt " -- - maxed by the annual sum- flK ' ' )iii aSl £« mer picnic at which offi- cers for the new year were elected. President Doris Eichlin Vice-President . , .

HE Young Women ' s Christian Association has been active at the University of Maryland for eight years. In the last two years this group has functioned as an independent organiza- tion separate and distinct from the Maryland Christian Association. Originally it was organ- ized as the women ' s branch of the Maryland Christian Association. The varied program for the Young Women ' s Christian Association this year included educational programs, social service work and functions. To start off the year, the club gave a tea for freshman girls. A Christmas party for a relief family was held, two fashion shows displaying fall and spring ensembles were given, and several outstanding speakers were brought to the campus by the organization. The Young Women ' s Christian Association also held its annual student-faculty tea, an informal meeting of students with faculty members for the purpose of getting the two groups better acquainted. The executive body of the Young Women ' s Christian Association is the cabinet, composed of the club officers and the respective committee chairmen. Miss McNaughton has been the faculty adviser for the Young Women ' s Christian Asso- ciation for several years.

LUTHERAN CLUB President Freddie Waldman Vice-President Leslie Shaw Secretary Doris Dunnington Treasurer Audrey Bosley P OR six years the Lutheran Club has been active on the Maryland campus. It is an or- ganization which aims to bring about a closer relationship among the Lutheran students. A well-balanced program is carried on which in- cludes talks by prominent speakers, religious and social meetings, and outdoor gatherings. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month of the school year and all stu- dents are cordially invited to attend. The club reorganized at a steak roast in September and since then has had as guests such prominent speakers as Coleman Jen- nings, Dr. Mary Markley, Sergeant Veronica Denlin of the Women ' s Police Bureau, and Rev. Henry Whiting, a graduate of the Uni- versity of Maryland. In May the activities of the Lutheran Club were brought to a close with an enjoyable beach party attended by all the active mem- bers. EPISCOPAL CLUB S. ROM the day of its inception on the Mary- land campus in I92I the Episcopal Club has been a medium whereby Christian fellow- ship has been fostered at the University. This year the club began its activities with an enjoyable get-together dance in the parish hall for the benefit of the new Episcopalians on the campus. Two meet- ings were held each month. At the first of these a guest speaker addressed the club, while the second was de- voted to discussions by the members on some pertinent topic.

THE NEWMAN CLUB President Victor Raphel Corresponding Secretary .... Catherine Mileto Recording Secretary Carolyn Webster Treasurer John DeArmey 1 HE purpose of the Newman Club is to promote the religious, educational, and social welfare of the Catholic students on the campus. Since its organization in 1935, the outstanding goal of the club has been to institute Mass on the campus on Sundays and on holidays of obligation. This year the goal was reached and Maryland students now may hear Mass and receive the Sacraments in a convenient place at a convenient time. Under the guidance of its new moderator and chaplain, Father Walsh, Com- missary of the Franciscan Monastery in Washington, and the faculty adviser, Dr. Wittier, of the Sociology Department, the club was reorganized and a new constitution adopted. An important objective was realized when the Newman Club became a member of The Federation of College Catholic Clubs. The first significant campus activity of the club this year was the winning of first prize, an engraved cup, in the historical division of the Homecoming Day parade. Then followed an orchestra dance to which all Catholic students were invited. Twice a month thereafter regular business and social meetings were held in various buildings on the campus. Debates, addresses by speakers from the University faculty and from outside sources, discussions, formal and informal entertainment, communion breakfasts, and off-the-campus trips, featured club activity for the remainder of the year. « 116 » RIDING CLUB President Elizabeth Harrover Vice-President Robert Lips Secretary-Treasurer Jane Kraft OEVERELY handicapped by lack of a stable on the campus, the Riding Club has made the most of the situation by patronizing the private stables in the immediate vicinity. The riders are, to say the least, enthusiastic, considering their willingness to rise at six in the morning in order to go on early morning rides. Unfortunately for the Riding Club, the weather man does not always cooperate with their eguestrian ventures. Snow, cold, and rain have spoiled many a well-planned ride. However, the club members, viewing the situation as a challenge to their hardiness, seldom postpone or cancel a ride because of weather conditions. Even torrential downpours seem to be no ob- stacle for the lovers of the sport and many a ride has been conducted amid the outpouring of an outraged sky. In the early fall and late spring moonlight rides lure the eguestrians with their thrills, chills, romances, and spills. One of the features of the year was early morning rides with hot breakfasts served to the hungry riders on their return to the campus. Although the early fall and late spring are the periods of greatest activity in the club ' s life, the winter season is not one of stagnation on the part of its administration. Indoor meetings are held to which guest speakers are invited to address the members and plans are made for the spring rides. The Riding Club has been concentrating a great deal of its efforts during the past year in an attempt to have the University construct stables on the campus.

This rapid growth can be attributed principally to the many diversified activities of the natatorial organization. Approximately two meetings a month are held — meetings that can scarcely be termed dry, since each usually features a swim in the Venetian Pool of the Shoreham Hotel. Occasionally, when the club does not swim, refreshments are served, technicolor movies of the club ' s activities are shown, or some other entertainment is provided. At the swims, water polo games are popular, especially, among the more active members of the club, although the so-called " weaker sex " often participates in the games. In addition, instruction is given by competent persons to members who desire it in life saving, swimming, and diving. A dance was given in the fall introducing some novel features to the campus. The last dance, a " popping " good one, was made colorful by fifteen hundred balloons. At the end of the spring term, a beach party, free to active members, was sponsored by the club. This affair lasted all day and was climaxed by an enjoyable dance in the evening. The club not only provides excellent opportunities for social and athletic activities, but ii also generates good feeling on the campus.

TERRAPIN TRAIL CLUB President Edward W. Hepburn Vice-President William Doying Secretary Grace Louise Greenwood Treasurer John R. Jehle Advisers Dr. and Mrs. Herman DuBuy HiVERY other Sunday afternoon the Terrapin Trailers leave the Administration Building for a short jaunt across the countryside. Their short hikes have included explorations of the Col- lege Park vicinity and trips to Sligo, Kensington, and Rock Creek Parks. Fort Washington on the Potomac was visited and two or three treks along the old C. and O. canal proved most interesting. On longer trips the club went to Frederick one holiday and enjoyed tramping in Gambrill State Park. Another all-day hike was made to Great Falls during mid-semester vacation. In October the Trailers drove to Smoke Hole, West Virginia, for the week-end to explore Cave Mountain near Franklin, West Virginia, and from all reports they did some real exploring. At the end of each hike a camp fire is built and supper cooked, each person assessed a small fee to cover both food and transportation. After supper there is singing and games until time to start home. The club has trailed a long way since its founding in the spring of 1937, when the idea of a hiking club was conceived by Eleanor Cooley. It has left behind a well-blazed trail, not only on the landscape, but also on the minds of those who have worked in order that the club might become a better known campus organization. The value of the Trail Club is fully recog- nized by the members who have gained a greater appreciation of the out-of-doors through taking a few hours off to hike with the Terrapin Trail Club. « 119 » JUNIOR PROM Filling Programs Prom Leaders Eleanor Powell and Ray Bolger added zest to the Junior Prom r EATURING the slide music of Russ Morgan, the annual Junior Prom was held at the Willard Hotel in Washington January 27th. An unusual feature of the prom was the per- sonal appearance of Eleanor Powell, famous cine- ma star, and Ray Bolger, dancer.

The Uni- versity of Maryland was the Maryland Agri- cultural College and the student body was numbered in the hundreds, but all that didn ' t deter the young socialites of the nineties who had decided that the social side of college life needed organization. Properly enough the founders chose the name of their club from the historic old Rossbourg Inn which stood and still stands on the campus. Washington and many other notables stopped there in its prime. Lafayette even recorded that he was enter- Dancing to the n: usic o£ Will Osborn and his orchestra tained there at one time. In the 1800 ' s the Inn was still the social center of the dis- trict, but in later years business declined and it was closed. Dr. Skinner, President of the Board of Regents, was one of the early presidents of the organization. In his day the dances en ded sharply at 12:00 o ' clock so that the boys could catch the train and get their dates home. From time to time the locale of the dances shifted as the club expanded, the latest changes being from the dining hall to the Gym- Armory. The year 1937-38 season was an un- usually successful one in Rossbourg an- nals. Four dances have been held as " The Terrapin " goes to press, with the bands of Jolly Coburn, Dean Hudson, Will Osborn, and Don Bestor furnishing the music for the occasions. An innovation of this year ' s administration limited attendance to all dances to the members of the club.

The Homecoming festivities were launched on Friday night, October 29, 1937, with a bonfire in front of the girls ' dormitory. Next morning the in- habitants of Greek lodges trimmed their houses to welcome the " home- comers, " Sigma Nu, Alpha Omicron Pi, and Kappa Alpha winning awards for the best decorated houses. The Freshman Class pulled thirty " Sophs " through Paint Branch for the annual dousing. Celebrations were concluded that evening by the Alumni dance in the Ritchie Coliseum with music by Dan Gregory. ALL-UNIVERSITY NIGHT PiVE thousand persons jammed Ritchie CoHseum the night of Febru- ary 11th to witness the fifth annual All-University Night triangle attrac- tion, which featured a cage battle between the Terps and V.M.I.

The skeptical are hereby referred to a student who has studied until 4 a.m. all week long for an important quiz while living on coffee and aspirin. Yet, withal, there are pleasures inseparably connected with college campus life. The tingling excitement on windy autumn Saturdays, the lazy spring days of idling around the campus, and the perennial spring romances are living vital memories to those who have tasted of such pleasures. Casual conversations, Saturday night dates, and trips to the movies, all these and many others constitute a portion of the true picture of campus life. •f ' ■ k -■v:- - J ' .- y» - - ' ffc 1 7 r. , € . ft f- s iS: i ' " i iS: w It . » «} ;l ?

The Maryland co-eds, dressed in colorful costumes, and presenting a pageant with a well adapted theme entitled " Maryland - A Miniature of America, " gave hundreds of spectators on the Library Green an hour of extra- ordinary entertainment. Jean Patterson, May Queen, and her maids were the center of May Day festivities. FIELD DAY On May 7th half a thousand trackmen from the State and District convened in the Byrd Stadium to participate in the University ' s twenty-first annual Field Day. The starter ' s gun cracked all afternoon as heat after heat of track events were run off and many a well-known professor was seen in the new role of field judge. Making the day interesting for Maryland rooters, the Terps took Rutgers across in track, Washington and Lee in baseball, and Catholic University in tennis. CAMP FORT WASHINGTON, MD.

Fundamentals underlying this essential attribute can be assimilated bit by bit from the classroom, but to be of practical value these funda- mentals must be given opportunity, through application, to modify the habits of the individual. Honorary frater- nities for leadership at the University of Maryland act as a reward to those who have been recognized as lead- ers in curricular and extra-curricular activities, just as other awards await those who choose to lead in their respective fields of endeavor. « 157 » OMICRON DELTA KAPPA Society for the Recognition of College Leadership Founded at Washington and Lee University in 1914 Established at the University of Maryland in 1927 President Logan Schutz Vice-President .

JL mt T J-jONG before the founding of Omicron Delta Kappa, the need had been felt in many univer- sities throughout the country for a definite means of recognizing those undergraduates whose serv- ices to their Alma Maters had placed them in position of outstanding campus leadership. In reaching this position, these students, as well as those of today in similar circumstances, had main- tained high standards, both in character and scholarship. It was with this thought in mind that a small group of men attending Washington and Lee University in 1914 formed the nahonal honorary fraternity that exists today in colleges throughout the country. Sigma Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa was brought into existence on this campus in Febru- ary, ' 1927, and Dr. R. V. Truitt was named its ad- viser. Among the charter members initiated at that time were: Dr. Truitt, Dr. H. C. Byrd, Dr. E. N. Cory, and Dr. W. S. Small. Nine under- graduates were inducted with these men and unto them fell the task of starting the University of Maryland Circle upon its successful career. Each year, at the spring and fall ceremonies, outstanding undergraduates, together with four other persons are tapped for membership. Of the four named, two are selected from the faculty, the third is a man who has achieved state promi- nence, and the fourth is a citizen of national prominence. Much of the success of Sigma Circle, its very founding, in fact, is due to untiring efforts and inspiration of its adviser. Dr. Truitt, and to him members of the past and present extend their sincerest gratitude for his services. « 159 » First row; Broughton, Danforth, Fisher, Hearn Second row: Hobbs, Kellermann, Kempton, Lowry.

MARYLAND CHAPTER Honorary Journalistic Fraternity Founded at Syracuse University in 1909 Established at the University of Maryland in 1930 President Jameson McWilliams Vice-President James Lewald Secretary-Treasurer Robert E. Baker iHE activities of Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary journalistic fraternity, were curtailed somewhat this year because the majority of members held responsible positions on the school publications, and as a consequence had little time in which to further the aims of the fraternity. Pi Delt did sponsor the annual publications banquet at Indian Springs Country Club in honor of the staffs of " The Diamondback, " ' Terrapin, " and " Old Line. " Modeled after Washington ' s famed Gridiron Club dinners, the banquet was termed one of the most outstanding in publica- tion history. The activities and influence of Pi Delta Epsilon resulted in a closer relationship among the three major publications and was a factor in maintain- ing the high standards of journalism exhibited by them during 1937-38.

Collins, Jr. IhIS national honorary military fraternity was founded in 1904 by five cadet officers at the Uni- versity of Wisconsin. Today the organization is composed of seventy-eight chapters with a total membership of twenty-six thousand in leading colleges and universities throughout the United States. There are three forms of membership in Scabbard and Blade — active, associate and hon- orary. The first type is given only to R.O.T.C. cadet officers. Associate and honorary mem- berships are conferred upon officers of any branch of the various military services of the United States, and upon outstanding leaders in civilian life. The purpose of the fraternity is to promote a more intelligent understanding of military affairs, and to help increase the efficiency of the young men who will be the officers and leaders in the military organizations of our country in the future. Company I, Third Regiment, the local unit, was established at the University of Maryland in 1922. Since that time Scabbard and Blade has served as a stimulus to the members of the advanced course in R.O.T.C. Candidates for membership in 1-3 are selected upon three basic standards — proficiency in military leadership, scholastic standing, and all-around good fellowship. « 163 » ALPHA PSI OMEGA Faculty Charles B.

This year the membership was double that of last year and activi- ties were increased accordingly. These included the escort of honor provided for the Governor at the dedication of the new Bureau of Mines Building, a banguet and initiation at Fort Meade, escort of honor for Adjutant-General Edgar T. Conley at the Omicron Delta Kappa tapping ceremony, silent drill exhibition for All-University Night, a formal dance. Zouave drill at the Military Ball, participation in the Maryland Day celebration, an exhibihon for Military Day, and the an- nual spring banguet.

Dobson, the 1937 Terra- pin pigskinners breezed through a tough ten- game schedule, copping eight decisive wins and dropping only two hard-fought battles to newcomers on the schedule — University of Pennsylvania and Penn State — to annex one of the best records in the history of football at Maryland. Sad indeed looked the ranks thinned by graduation and resignation, and the outlook ' was equally as gloomy when the Old Liners began the season with an unimpressive win over St. John ' s of Annapolis. Throughout this contest Mr. Dobson ' s boys ran at will against the weaker Johnnies and at the final gun the scoreboard read Maryland, 25; St. John ' s, 0. Dearth of Terrapin reserves was empha- sized in a stirring battle against the Quakers of the University of Pennsylvania in Phila- delphia — a game in which Maryland ' s Meade outshone the whole Penn eleven. It was in this tilt also that the deadly passing arm of Charlie Weidinger was brought into the light and given an inauguration under approving eyes. Due to confused pass defense and lack Coaches Faber, Head Coach Dobson, Heagy y t. ta myi of good benchwarmers, the Quakers scored thrice in the third canto to overcome the Terp lead of the half and take the second game of the season, 28-21. Western Maryland invaded College Park in quest of the mythical State Championship, but their team, weakened by graduation and scholastic troubles, was turned away in a see- saw skirmish by a meagre 6-0 score. In the early part of the game there was a sensa- tional trek the length of the field, climaxed by the only touchdown of the game. The con- test ended with the Terrors making a desper- ate touchdown attempt from Terp territory. By virtue of the educated toe of Pershing Mondorff, newcomer to the Liners, Virginia bowed in the fourth fracas.

However, the Cavaliers failed to realize any dividends from their much publicized " touchdown plays " and in the closing minutes of the fray Mondorff booted Weidinger ' s placement across the bar for the only tally of the classic. Score: Maryland, 3; Virginia, 0. On the next Saturday, the previously un- defeated Syracuse eleven was drubbed, flat- tened and mixed with the mud of Baltimore by the under-dogs from College Park for one of the major upsets in the nation ' s year of gridiron upsets.

Smothering the Sou therners in a barrage of tricks, Meade and Weidinger led the Terps to two touchdowns against the visitors ' one. The score was 13-7.

Cadets, with the score 7-6 in favor of the Cadets, the Indian with the mighty foot booted a field goal in the last minute in his usual heroic fashion, making the final record 9-7, the Free State ' s margin. Penn State put the damper on the Terrapin winning streak by emerging victorious from a spirited scrap on their own soil.

Maryland dropped the two opening games, the first to the Spiders of Richmond 31-26 and the sec- ond to Michigan 43-26. Baltimore proved the first victim for the onslaughts of Norton, Knepley and Company, falling to the count of 50-32. From this point on " Dutch " Knepley, Bill Norton, and Wave Wheeler waged a merry race for individual scoring honors. Final results showed Wheeler on top with 163 points, Knepley second with 158 markers, and Norton in third position with 147. During the early portion of the season, the Liners seemed unable to click, but after the turn of the semester, the court machine began to roll along merrily and by February 3rd had won only six games and dropped eight. After that date they won eight straight, despite the fact their high-scoring pivot man, " Biff " Norton, was lost for the remainder of the season. So greatly improved was the brand of ball dis- played by the Liners that they quickly assured them- selves of a place in the Conference tournament. However, after downing the Citadel 45-43 in the tourney opener, the Marylanders lost to the Con- ference-winning " Blue Devils of Duke 35-33 in the semi-final round. It was a team which was continually changing because of minor injuries to key men. Adam Bengo- echea, Ed Johnson, Wave Wheeler, and Bill Mulitz were found alternating at the forward posts. In mid- court were Bill Norton, Franny Beamer, and John McCarthy, while " Dutch " Knepley, Coleman Head- ley, Pershing Mondorff, and Bill Rea took care of the guard positions. Whem Coach Shipley calls his varsity courtmen next season he will find the great majority of this year ' s court aggregation in uniform and ready for Headley Johnson Bengoechea sinks one against V.M.I. active duty. Of those who comprised this fast-step- ping team, only three will be lost — Coleman Head- ley, Wave Wheeler, and John McCarthy. While no predictions are in order, it will be a veteran squad which will be seeking Southern Conference bas- ketb all laurels during the next campaign. In all, it was one of the most successful seasons a Maryland court team has experienced in years. When a team can lose its pivot man, who is also its highest scoring luminary, in mid-season, and then go on to win eight straight games, it deserves the highest praise. It was not a team of world beaters that took the floor for Maryland during the season just past, but it was a combine that exhibited a superior brand of court play, and the results ran true to form.

With one lone veteran, Benny Alperstein, fighting in the 125, 135, and 145-pound classes, Coach Harvey L. " Heinie " Miller juggled his green team about the entire season in a vain effort to find a winning com- bination. Pitting his rookies against the veterans in the Southern Confer- ence tournament he was able to draw only a triangle tie for fourth place, as the Terps dropped their crown to the powerful Clemson aggregation. In the initial set-up of the 1938 sea- son, the Terrapins met the Blue Devils from Duke on January 15th and earned an unexpected tie from the experi- enced Durham leathermen. George Dorr, 115-pounder, although he lost by a decision to Bob Price of the visitors, established himself as a potential threat in the lead-off position. Dick Johnson, Terp middleweight flash, rocked Vin- cent of Duke time and again with vicious ambidextrous flurries but tired badly in the concluding round and was de- VARSITY BOXING SQUAD Back row: Miller, Coach Maglin, Henderson, dePeralta, Pearson, Adams, Himelfarb, Acree, Flax, Johnson, Lodge, Manager McWilliams.

Dorr defeating Simpson of Virginia Coleman spars with Danny Farrar of Duke clared hors de combat with only a second to go in the tilt. It was, without question, the outstanding thriller of the year. Eddie Lloyd and Joe Henderson battered out decisions to clinch a tie for the Old Liners. Catholic University ' s sluggers gave Colo- nel Miller ' s men trouble in the second meet. Dorr counter-punched to victory over C.U. ' s Davie Bernstein, dealing the Brooklander his first college defeat. Coach Miller sacrificed Alperstein to a draw with Fred Mix in the 145-pound class so that Nathan Askin, prom- ising Sophomore 135-pounder, might rein- force the Maryland team. Askin won handily in his division. Ralph " Blackie " Pearson dropped a close, disputed fight in the light- heavy class and Joe Henderson took an ini- tial round T.K.O. from Leo Katalinas for the major excitement of the evening. National champion Benny Alperstein met defeat for the second time in his college career when he climbed up to the 145-pound class to meet Co-captain Maynard Harlow of the Cavaliers when Virginia invaded the Coliseum February 5th. Blackie Pearson and Moe Egan furnished two thrilling duels in the 165 and light-heavy classes, respectively, when Pearson lost a slam-bang fray to Inter- collegiate Champion Ray Schmidt and Egan was awarded a decision. The Cavaliers avenged last year ' s defeat by downing the Terps 5-3.

Voted best bout of the South- ern Conference Tourney ' Little Colonel Big Shorty ' Mascot Western Maryland took a shellacking All- University Night in the Coliseum. Before a capacity crowd the Maryland thumpers worked over the Green Terrors to the tune of 5 ' 2 to 2j2 for the only win of the season. It was in this meeting that George Acree was introduced to Maryland fans. After a bril- liant battle, he dropped his engagement to the Terrors by reason of greater experience, in the light-heavy set-up Blackie Pearson took a potential haymaker flush on his. nose, in- capacitating him for the remainder of the season. Blackie, however, won the bout in a few seconds with one explosive right which spelled T.K.O. to Lsinski. In the concluding match of the year. Colo- nel Miller journeyed with his group to New Brunswick to engage the Rutgers pack, and was turned back 6-3 in a meet which fea- tured two 155-pound bouts and a forfeit. Maryland lost both 155-pound fights, and Jose Peralta was awarded the point for for- feiture. Askin and Alperstein contributed the other two Millermen points, while Marty Rocklin and Joe Henderson lost decisions and Moe Egan absorbed a T.K.O. in the third round. Maryland ' s 1938 record is not impressive. There is, however, a gratifying outlook for future seasons as most of the regulars will be in uniform next year. With recruits from the ill-fated Frosh lineup, a potent squad will part the ropes for Colonel Miller when the gong sounds in 1939.

BASEBALL v ' PENING their season by winning five straight games, the Shipleymen seemed to be cer- tain of fulfilhng pre-season predictions of an undefeated season and a possible Southern Conference diamond crown. The Terps kno cked off Vermont 16-6 in the schedule opener March 28th. The following day Ohio State bowed before the Maryland boys, 10-1. Shortly thereafter a much-touted Cornell club fell before the Terrapin sluggers, 12-8. Then, on a short Southern Conference tour, the locals downed a strong V.M.I, team, 6-5, after a scheduled Washington and Lee game had been postponed because of the in- clement weather. The Nittany Lions of Penn State were the next bunch to feel the effects of Terp batting as the Liner nine trounced them 7-4. Then came tragedy in the form of a defeat by Michigan ' s Wolverines. Despite the fact that Coach Shipley even had Eddie Johnson, Terp keystone sacker, pitching, after using all other available mound material, Maryland went down to an ignominious 16-6 defeat. Rallying slightly on the second Southern Conference trip, the Terps were able to defeat a strong Virginia nine led by Bill Terry, Jr. Bill Steiner, Maryland right-handed twirling artist, did the mound honors up right and Eddie Johnson starred on the defense Hi, 0 eOr f ' % ■ S li Mfes: f - 1- r VARSITY BASEBALL SQUAD Back row: Keller, Surgent, Bryant, Ru bie, Steiner, Boyda, C.

Wulfhorst (Ohio State) out at plate as he muffed none out of twelve chances to put out a Cavalier player. The Terps won 5-1. But Duke ' s Blue Devils proved too potent for the Maryland lads. In a double-header during the Easter holidays, the Dukes trounced the Terps 9-7 and 8-2. Continuing the Southern Conference circuit, the Shipleymen lost to William and Mary ' s Indians 4-1, when Indian pitcher Waugh proved to have too much on the ball for the Maryland sluggers. Then came the biggest upset of the year. A pronounced underdog because of its difficulties against Michigan, Duke, and William and Mary, Maryland came up for its game with Georgetown Saturday, April 23rd, with no one willing to give them any show against the Hilltoppers. Georgetown had not been bested in nineteen collegiate contests and was looking forward to another undefeated season like the one of 1937. To add to Maryland ' s pre-game misery the Hoyas had trounced Michigan and the Wolverines had swamped Maryland 16-6. But the Terrapin sluggers, backing up Bill Steiner who gained the title of " sensation " with his slow unworried twirling against the Hilltoppers, beat out hits which were con- verted into runs totalling 6 contrasted to Georgetown ' s 4. Wave Wheeler, Terp third sacker, smashed one out for a home run in the first canto and drove in Dutch Knepley, Terp hot corner artist, who had been languishing on second. From then on out, the Hoyas ' defeat was a certainty. BASEBALL SENIORS Wood Bryan Wheeler Surgent Ruble Lewald, Manager !!? Bob Burns safe at home. Vermont gan: e « JPk : S TT3 " «I With a pitching staff as weak as the punch at a W.G.T.U. banquet, the Shipleymen have ridden well the rocky schedule set for them this season. Maryland slugging, well- above average, has made up in part for the failure of the mound staff, but the failure of the other eight men on the field in backing up the pitchers in their efforts has lost several games for Maryland. Joe Crisafull filled in a full-time job in the backstopping post; Dutch Knepley in his second year on the hot corner played outstanding ball and maintained a good batting average to boot. Eddie Johnson left little to be desired in his work at second and was aided no end by Shorty Chumbris at shortstop. Wave Wheeler made up for any errors he may have made on third by coming through time and time again with hits which saved the day for Maryland. Moose Surgent, Bill Bryant, and Lefty Chumbris filled their post in left, center, and right field capably and boosted the Terrapin batting average.

COACHES Heagy, Head Coach Faber LACROSSE Inheriting a Prlnceton-shared National Championship from last year ' s team, Coach " Jack " Faber ' s 1938 lacrosse ten faced a hard schedule of top-line tens in the country. While many of the 1937 squad graduated, they were replaced capably by candidates from the past season ' s Frosh. Fred " Rip " Hewitt, George Watson and Parker Lindsay in attack positions, and Hack Deeley at goal constituted the nucleus for the new team and were supplemented in the defense corps by husky Jim Meade. From the 1937 Frosh squad came youngsters who starred with the varsity their first year. Among the most impressive performers were Willie Bond and Jimmie Heil, who established themselves in first-string berths their first year, and Leo Mueller, Charlie Parvis, Poony Wilson, Bill Graham and Bill Ray. " Big Bob " Brown, George Lawrence, Ralph Albarano and Frank Skotnicki con- stitute a foursome who are fast learning the game after first tackling it last spring.

Maryland scoring against Swarthmore victories. Rip Hewitt made a bid for Ail-American berth in this tilt as he hit the net five times for more than half of Maryland ' s score. The Old Liners ' play was ragged throughout most of the contest as there was a lively exchange of rookie material from the bench. Mount Washington, composed of many former Maryland players, defeated the Fabermen by a 6-4 count on May 2nd. Maryland ' s defense showed remarkable improvement over the Swarthmore game, and the attack was bolstered by the return of Bobbie Neil- son to the roster. However, ' the powerful National Open Champions showed amazing strength and built up a 5-3 margin at the half. Each team netted one in the final period to complete the scoring. Maryland next entertained Harvard ' s ten in the pourdown which is beginning to be a traditional part of Harvard-Maryland games. Not at any time in the game was the Terp lead threatened, and they plugged the Crimson goal eleven times, suffering only two return counters. Parker Lindsay led the Maryland attack with three goals and played a rousing game at defense for much of the time. Long, Manager « 189 » Meade breaks up a Mount Washington pass He was moved to attack when Hewitt was removed from the game. " Poony " Wilson entered in the last quarter, and in his short stay scored twice. Penn State ' s Lions formed the opposition for the third collegiate onslaught. Playing under the bracing influence of a cool, windy day, the Terps organized its hitherto confused attack to vanquish the visitors in a rough and tumble fray. What the Lions lacked in tactical skill they made up with sheer man-power. However, with players such as Meade, Lindsay, Neilson, Hewitt, Willie Bond, and Willie Wolfe, the Marylanders were not to be denied. Goalie Hack Deeley held the State men to three tallies while his own men ac- counted for eleven. St. John ' s highly-touted ten moved into College Park April 23rd after they had beaten Mount Washington, vanquishers of the Terps earlier in the season.

Long before Christmas the boards felt the bite of spikes. Such earnest effort made possible one of the most successful indoor seasons. The Madison Square Garden popu- lace saw the Black and Gold relay win by 30 yards. Two weeks later the same group flashed in Carolina ' s " Tin Can " to claim the conference championship and break the rec- ord previously held by two other Terrapin quartets. Following this was the Fifth Regi- ment meet in Baltimore, sponsored by the University of Maryland. The Governor ' s Mile, the feature race, brought together Glenn Cunningham, Archie San Romani, Gene Venzke, and Maryland ' s Mason Chron- ister. As might be expected, invincible Glenn won, setting a new world ' s flat track record of 4:14. Romani garnered second place and with a courageous kick-finish Chronister beat Venzke, the world renown " picture runner. " With the " Ides of March " almost past, would-be trackmen flocked to the equipment room like birds from the South. As a result the varsity ' s drab gray sweat clothes were issued to the latecomers and the regulars donned new black and gold livery. Other headline events were Coleman Headley ' s 1:56.8 half-mile record. Frank Cronin ' s Conference 440 record of 52 sec- onds, Ed Miller ' s indoor high jump record, Franny Kenney ' s jump of 22 feet 2 ' 2 inches in the broad jump, Jimmy Kehoe ' s University two-mile record of 9:37 and Hermie Evans ' new low of 25 seconds in the 220-yard low hurdles. Sorely missing Guckeyson ' s fifteen points in the dual meets, Blair Smith threw the spear and Charley Morris heaved the shot and twirled the discus to bring in tallies.

May 16 — Washington and Lee May 18— Penn State at State College TENNIS Displaying a battery ol new talent, Coach Les Bopst ' s varsity tennis team was acclaimed one ol the finest to ever represent the University of Maryland. The squad boasted such talent as Allie Ritzenberg, former Middle Atlantic States junior champion and present holder of the men ' s Public Parks championship of Washington; Nate Askin, at one time, number one junior of Maryland; veteran Ted Leh- man, of last year ' s varsity; Jay Phillips, Lawrence Lichliter, Mack Dunie, Bob Waters and Harvey Kreuzburg, all players of ability. By virtue of several weeks ' indoor practice in the Coliseum and the early opening of the clay courts, the racketmen were whipped into good shape for the first few matches. This was evidenced by the 9-0 victory over William and Mary in the season opener. The 6-3 win over Richmond was encourag- ing, but the defeat of Duke by the same score was enough proof to show that Bopst ' s men were due for an outstanding season.

RIFLE V OACHED by Major Charles Jones, Maryland ' s Varsity Marksmen came through the season in winning style terminating the year with seven wins in shoulder-to-shoulder and losing but three out of fifty postal matches. The riflemen, by their marksmanship, brought to the University no little recognition. The W. R. Hearst trophy was won for the second time, giving Maryland a third and two first places in three years of competition. In the Third Corps area, a large section of the East, the team won first place for the third consecutive year, bringing the cup into permanent possession of the University. In the national intercollegiate matches the team placed sixth for the second year and in the National R.O.T.C. competition placed sixth. In addition, this year ' s team set a new record for the home range with a score of 1400. Such shooting of individuals on the team deserves the highest praise. Following their contemporaries on the varsity sguad, the Freshman sharp- shooters turned in an egually creditable score. Losing by only one point, their team placed second in the national intercollegiate matches. FRESHMAN RIFLE TEAM Standing: Whalen Major Jones, Robie.

This wide range of contests appealed to aspiring and perspiring athletes to such an extent that the par- ticipants often outnumbered the spectators. WOMEN ' S INTRAMURALS OO keen is the interest in sports by co-eds that the Women ' s Physical Education Department and the Women ' s Athletic Association met the growing demand and sponsored intramural athletics. The tournaments offered were received with enthusiasm and thus women ' s intra- murals carried forth the program of developing physical fitness among women students of the University. WOMEN ' S PHYSICAL EDUCATION LHE slogan for physical education for wo- men on the campus might well be " A sport for every co-ed. " The curriculum provides for two years devoted to the following sea- sonal activities: Hockey, tennis, soccer, bas- ketball, volleyball, rhythms, stunts, tumbling, tennis, badminton, baseball, shuffleboard, and numerous minor individual sports. Sponsoring interclass competitions, the de- partment crowned the Sophomores champions in both the volleyball and basketball tourney. No account of women ' s activities would be complete without mention of the co-ed con- tributions to All-University Night. At the an- nual festival a review of all co-ed sports was presented in panorama with hockey, archery, and fencing featured " The New Line " pre- sented by co-ed tap dancers added color and enjoyment, while a group of dancers follow- ing the modern trend were featured in a number entitled " Festival Rhythms.

Stu- dents majoring in physical education aid in the management and functioning of this or- ganization by coaching and refereeing. The regular program of major and minor sports has been followed throughout the year. Each major sport was climaxed by the usual interclass or intramural tournaments. In the minor sports the association provided for in- dividual tournaments. VOLLEYBALL TEAM Standing: Danforth, V. Bono, Duncan, Swann, Hyatt, Briscoe, Ames, Gilleland. Kneeling: F. Nordwall, A.

P» (h( ' WOMEN ' S RIFLE TEAM Bono, Yeager, Kemp, Jones, Duncan Play days with many of the local colleges have comprised one of the most interesting phases of the athletic program. The Mary- land teams have had an opportunity on these days to meet and compete with teams from Western Maryland, Wilson Teachers ' Col- lege, American University, and George Washington University. During the year many interesting speakers were secured to give lectures and demon- strations in various sports. Among these authorities were Jean Tenney, National Arch- ery Champion; Jenney Turnbull, athletic in- structor at George Washington University; Mrs. Meg O ' Donell, golf authority; and Mrs. Susie Lukens, hockey veteran. The officers for 1937-38 were: Alice Mor- gan, president; Sara Case, vice-president; Mildred Smith, secretary; Hope Swann, re- corder of points. These meetings and sports events offered further opportunity for growth, recreation and enjoyment of a well-rounded life at the University of Maryland. WOMEN ' S RIFLE TEAM J.HE Co-ed Rifle Team, in spite of the loss of all but two girls from last year, came through with 18 victories, 3 ties and 6 losses. By means of postal matches, the riflettes com- peted with some of the best teams in the country. Some of the teams fired against were George Washington, Penn State, Uni- versity of California, University of Michigan, Drexel Institute, Coe College, and North- western. During the year the girls did some fine individual shooting. Vivian Bono placed eighth in the Women ' s Individual Intercol- legiate Championship and received the State Championship Medal for Maryland. Anita Yeager placed fifth and received one of the bronze place medals in the same contest. Mary Hetta Bohlin of Washington, D.C., was captain of the team and Anita Yeager of Baltimore was the manager. The team is coached by Sargeant George J. Uhrinak.

The new policy this year of including the presidents of fraternities proved an advan- tageous move. Speed of legislation was in- creased and the council was better informed on the sentiments of fraternity men at Mary- land. Another alteration in the proceedings of the group was the change of election day to a date preceding the Interfraternity Ball. This enabled the new ' council officers to be formally introduced to the Greek student body and added a colorful ceremony to the dance program. « 208 » f f wr fe, " -» T, .fill = " •, J, ja» dc - ' 5 l " .

Many is the time that a good brother has chmbed a nearby tree for his bedclothes, and an honest to goodness fraternity man has yet to see the suit of clothes that he could honestly call his own. Yet there lurks somewhere in the hearts of the fraternity man a subtle appeal for the enjoyments of Greek life. For fraternity days are active ones, regardless of the neighbor ' s private opinions on the subject. Intramural teams, and the battles to the death in the annual ping-pong tournament . . . homecoming competitions and the lazy spring days with baseball in the backyard . . . and the bills for broken windows. All are a part of campus fraternity life. Faculty L. P. McCann, C. O. Appleman, J. Y. Bryan, L. J. Hodgins, J. M. Lemon, N. E. Phillips.

Commencing the year 1937-38, the twenty-eight active brothers of Phi Delta Theta gave ample proof that their fraternity was to carry its glories and triumphs into the future and maintain its leading position on the campus by pledging thirty -one rushees. No small amount of its supremacy is due to Dr. Norman Phillips, zoology department head, whose wise counsel has been of great benefit. Mrs. Richard Moore, diligent chaperon and housemother, de- serves thanks for her sincere interest in Phi Delta Theta ' s welfare. " Prexy " Ed Long, 1937-38 mogul, who has led Phi Delta Theta through one of its most successful years, exemplifies the true spirit of cosmopolitanism which typifies the brotherhood of Phi Delta Theta.

' N Princeton Avenue stands the home of the Theta Chis, a national brotherhood founded eighty-one years ago at Norwich College, Vermont. Maryland ' s Alpha Psi Chapter was incepted in 1929, when the national board accepted the petition of Delta Mu, at that time a leading Greek local.

EPSILON GAMMA CHAPTER JL HE white house with the green trimmings that borders on College Avenue, across from the old post office, is the residence of the A.T.O. ' s. Surrounded by pines and surmounted by the golden maltese cross of Alpha Tau Omega, this stately house exudes an atmosphere of friendliness and warmth. The house is always open to visiting members, friends, and strangers; and every occupant, from Mrs. Brehme, the ever-watchful housemother, to the greenest pledge, strives to make visitors feel at home. The Alpha Taus are proud of their cordial relations with the other Greeks on the hill, although they do carry on a friendly feud with their neighbors farther up the avenue. Within the house the scene varies constantly. If an observer were to enter noiselessly on Tuesday eve- ning after meeting, he would very likely find the boys engaged in a wide variety of pursuits. In some con- venient corner he would notice that perennial four- some, Carl Humelsine, Mike Lombardo, Joe Corbin, and " Snorty " Holzapfel, engrossed in an excitingly unorthodox game of bridge. Naturally, the observer would join the interested audience of ping-pong en- thusiasts consisting of Floyd Soule, Dick Kern, Welch Smith, and Bob Lawder, watching the game going strong in the sun parlor, where Harvey Kreuzburg an d Johnny Smith hold forth in great style . . . and Mitchell, Mears, and Martin, the alliterative room- mates, ensconced on the sofa, embroiled in another one of their interminable arguments which constantly disturb the tranquillity of their room. Near the door he would see Dick Hutchinson and Bruce Davis try- ing to make up their minds whether they ought to go home or stay and listen to the new recordings. . . . George Lawrence, Bill Brown, and Will Sherwood waiting in line at the telephone, in order to explain to their eight o ' clock dates why they haven ' t left the A.T.O. house by nine-thirty. . . . " Priff " Healey, Mike Panciotti, Nico Edmonds, and " Steve " Brode fighting for the evening sports section, while Charlie Downey, completely disregarding the rest, reads com- placently a cattle breeder ' s manual. ... In another corner Proxy Paul Peffer and Bob Benbow who are engaged in conversation with Jack Schwarz, that effervescent cheer leader, who adds a few spicy tid- bits now and then. The sudden crescendo of Charlie Kammer is easily heard from the second floor, inter- rupted by the patient voice of Mike Herman explain- ing for the ninety-ninth time that he is going to study Descriptive Geometry, and is not going to the Grill. At this juncture, the departing guest closes the door and steals away, narrowly missing Joe Parks and Bill Rea coming up the walk. Though his stay was brief, he will not soon forget the pleasant memory of this congenial fraternity household. Faculty Howard W. Clark, Lawrence V. How- ard, Devoe Meade, Albert L.

Visi- tors at the home of the wearers of the encircled cross often remark upon the harmony and genial brotherhood that exists therein. A look inside the large chapter room on a cold winter evening reveals none other than George Watson, a likely candidate for All-American in lacrosse this year, and Parker Lindsay who will probably be joining that select group again for the second year. ... In one corner Bill Howard and Jack Badenhoop, members of K.A. ' s stellar touch-football team, reminisce and joke of old times. . . .

In the fall a large number of Freshmen were pledged, twenty-five enthusias- tic yearlings scrawling their names on Snake bids. Truest life pictures of Delta Phi Chapter are obtained by reflecting on the idiosyn- crasies of the various members. . . . " Gravy " Logan Schutz, President, discussing hurdle form with track enthusiasts Hermie Evans and John Beers. . . . " Hairbreadth " Harry Voll- mer seeking out jovial Robert Chaney, rotund " Kip " Edwards, and happy-go-lucky Waverly Wheeler to pass judgment on the latest haircuts of the " Whiffle " triplets, Charles Barber, Dave Leonard, and Jack Brown. Chuck Park shouts for a game of pitch and immediately " Slippery " Oden Bowie, " Goose " Sonny Hurley, and " Lash " Bud Wahl join as a group. . . . Lusty as a March breeze, " Fat Boy " Hack Deeley stalks in and corners pretty boy Bill Kimball and Irish Pat Lanigan, forcing them to listen while he expounds about his latest " gal. " Studious Jack Holbrook is interrupted by the noise which comes from the recreation room where " Punchy " Bob Walton and " Cube " Perry Hay engage in one of their famous open-hand battles. . . . " Rip " Hewitt endeavors to straighten out " Red " Oscar Nevares, while playful Nip Prescott scampers back and forth across the room. . . . Blaringly the radio shouts as Eliott Robertson and Henry Johnson debate the pros and cons of attending a stag party the coming week-end. Viewing the activities of the boys with an attitude of amusement is Henry Walls, faculty advisor extraordinary, who has been extremely helpful throughout the entire year.

Ci O P ETA CHAPTER OOME distance off the campus proper, shaded by the large elms which line Princeton Avenue, is the Phi Sigma Kappa House. Founded at Maryland in May, 1923, from the secret order of Skull and Coffin, Eta Chapter is the fifth oldest fraternity in College Park. Entering through the large door of the house, one may see the Phi Sigs finishing an evening meal. Ralph Meng, vice-president, is still engrossed in the last pork chop, being pressed hard for epicurean honors by Treasurer Joe Henderson. As the brothers file out of the dining room across the hall and into the living room, it is possible to get a better view of them as they really are. . . . " Doc " Broadwater is operating the recording machine, while Bill Coster sits by seemingly bored at the semi-classical melo- dies. . . . Vic Raphel, head of the local Newman Club, stretches out on one of the numerous couches and yawns. Suddenly the piano in the hall begins to sound as Bob Bradley ' s flying fingers pound out the latest hit tunes, and then guickly change to one of Bach ' s com- positions. . . . Over in a corner Elgin Scott is talk- ing over the co-ed situation with Pete Houck, stalwart house manager. . . . Charlie Parvis, football center, literally breezes in and begins to give all the low down on the next game, as Johnny Lane ' s mind pro- jects to spring lacrosse practice. 7- s: — " v Mf ifeui 1 - 1 Sitting in another corner of the living room is Clair DeVore, expounding the cause of organized labor to Forrest King, who listens with an expression of rapt boredom. . . . Another couch is occupied by the " Dictator " Jamie Mc Williams, who, with a worried expression, is earnestly telling a rushee of the bene- fits to be derived from fraternities in general, and Phi Sig in particular. The front door bursts open and in marches the military trio. Major Jones, Pete Jones, and Bob Jones. . . . Bill West and Harry Hambleton engage in a lively discussion on the possibilities of saving gas and oil on their daily trips from Washington, and re- turn. . . . Harry and Walter Miller talk over new music for the band as John Freudenberger tears his hair seeking interesting notes to send into " The Diamondback.

Miss Lula Darby Housemother Loused a stone ' s throw from the men ' s dormitories, in what is probably the most convenient fraternity location in College Park, are the secluded Delta Sigs. Enjoying all the privacy of light housekeeping off the Maine coast, the boys are " far from the madding crowd " down the hill. Long after most other fraters have begun their weary trudge to those awful eight- twenties, the Delta Sigs are making their first attempts to crawl out of bed. On Tuesday night there is usually a good " bull session " in progress, when pledges and actives get together for their meet- ings. In one corner of the library, talking football to " Jumbo " Jim Meade, is star gridder Nick Budkoff. . . . Near them, former high school grid enemies, Willie Wolfe and the two DeArmeys, recall to each other their days of high school rivalry. ... In the hall, talking with " Chub " Zalesak and Howard Tippet, the good alumnae brothers, are President Charley MacDonald, Pledge Master John Parks, and Vice-President " Little " Franny Zalesak. . . . Sprawled out on a couch are the militarists of the house, soldierly Colonel Ben McClesky, discussing the day ' s drill with Major Bruce McFadden and Captain Ralph Keller. A trip upstairs reveals honor student Tom Hall tutoring a pro- bationary pledge and across the hall in their room Fencing Coach Bob Neiman and his roommate, Warrington Smith, figure out with teammate Leonard Meakin just how they are going to stab their way to the Southern Conference championship. . . . Next door Southern Maryland ' s Tom Carrico and his chemistry majoring roommate, Jim Owens, study. In the chapter room " Hill Boy " John Epperson and guiet but mighty active Tommy Brookes nimbly swing paddles in a game of ping-pong as bandsmen Ralph Chilcoat and Fred Perkins, House Manager Bredekamp, and the pugilistic Cuban, Jose Peralta, look on. Trying to read the " Home Bugle " amidst the confusion is Cumberland ' s pride, " Jake the Snake " Stegmaier. With ever-present bull sessions, accounting problems that in- volved all the business ad students of the house, physical chem- istry quizzes that kept the Pre-Meds awake all night, with all the give and take of fraternity life, the Delta Sigs find that they have memories to cherish long after college days are over. « 224 » DELTA SIGMA PHI 4 n First row: Bredekamp ' 38, Carrico ' 40, Harlan ' 40, Keller ' 38, MacDonald ' 39.

Big Bill Steiner, who hopes to pot plants for a living, is picking blond hairs from his best suit. . . . Fred Johnston, also an agrarian, proudly displays his hunting license which permitted him to bag game to the east of the club ' s estate. . . . John Guill, of the Guills of Takoma Park, sits silently by and plans new Inricks for the initiation in the spring. . . . Deen Evans, who wears an " M " for shooting bull ' s-eyes, has two objectives at this point: his girl in Iowa, and a career in the business world. . . . Warren Hughes, who punches tickets at Rossbourg dances, has two interests also: a girl who doesn ' t live in Iowa, and a business career. The Junior (socially) rostrum includes Warren Steiner, who is majoring in Kappa and ties on gloves in the square circle at the Coliseum. . . . Bob Pailthorp will probably take the Home Economics course next year to prepare himself for the duties of house manager — this will leave him with only the Law and Medicine Colleges to try. . . . Bob Kinney is still croaking his bullfrog bass in the Men ' s Chorus. . . . George Allen, of the Aliens of Takoma Park, smokes a pipe, drives a Ford, and takes school seriously. . . . John Bow- man is studying law and understudying the great Tschaikowsky. . . . Bond Weber can eat more than anyone in the house and walks to the Arts and Sciences Building in ten minutes flat. . . . Ewing Gupton, of the recent pledge class, is ambitious for a banking career. . . . Bert Hall is the shining soldier-boy. In the Class of ' 40 come the Coleman boys. . . . Al, the good-looking lad, is the best ham-actor in the organization — the vegetable bills have been cut to a minimum as a result of Al ' s efforts. . . . Tom, the brawny lad, is the punchy pugilist and acts as bouncer at all social functions. . . . Bob Wilson is the ambassador of goodwill to the " 3-D " camp. . . . Bill Weyrich, the boy who tore up a twelve-inch tree in his freshman year, is looking for bigger things in ' 38. . . . Doug Steinberg, the exponent of the " Big Apple, " is the budding journalist. . . . Jimmy Sloan, the fraternity ' s gift to politics, is timing his gradu- ation to meet prosperity at the corner. . . . Harold Axtell expects to relieve human suf- fering by extracting bigger and better molars. Such is the nature of the Sigma Phi Sigma brotherhood.

A large red brick dwelling which stands deep in College Park territory symbolizes the nucleus of Alpha Theta, the agricultural fraternity. A glimpse through the interior might reveal a few characteristic facts about each of the members. On the first floor is pipe-smoking Pete DeCecco looking quite contented. . . . Busily mapping out a program for the social season is Tom Gordon, while roommate Abe Gottwals racks his brain in an effort to please the majority by setting before them articles of gastro- nomical delight. . . . Preparing to visit the Tri-Delt House, Clay Shaw dresses meticulously in the next room, as Bill Seabold sits studying, studying, and studying — the picture on his bureau. . . . Joe Mer- ritt grimaces and turns again to his books. Pounding heavily up the stairs, Al Baker, arrayed in his band uniform, collides with Clarence Eck, who is coming out of the showers, shaving with one hand and combing his hair with the other, hurriedly pre- paring for a visit to Margaret Brent. . . . That noise in Room One is a mixture of Stup singing and Wheeler pleading with Bailey to tell him who defaced his girl ' s picture. . . . Vernon Foster just winks and grins. . . . Heubeck, dressed in old clothes and car- rying a football, rushes out of Room Two. . . . With in, Scherer and Hoshall are lazily fighting it out. . . . " Twizzle " Bosley just says, " Oh, boy! " A burst of music from Room Three indicates that " Li ' l " Carl Behm, Ralphie-boy Clark, and Smitty are truckin ' out their number three stomp, capably engi- neered by Clint Brookhart. . . . Genial Noble Ruler Kuhn presides in Room Four — quite naturally, then, George Remsberg, Cy Wintermoyer, and Louie Ahalt are well-behaved young gentlemen. . . . Sax swing- ster Will Cawley practices in Room Five, much to the discomfiture of Galbreath and Brosius. . . . The in- fectious laughter of Bill Jarrell may be heard above the din. . . . Looking like " Men in White, " Norbie Hite and Chandler Astle leave Room Six, headed in a general direction for the Dairy. . . . Tearfully, Wayne Fitzwater bids them farewell. Carroll Forsyth enters the front door with Frank McFarland and Frank Taylor and rallies the boys round the piano to sing some of the fraternity pep songs. . . .

Esmond Treasurer Richard W. Carroll DEING a part of one of the largest and most progressive na- tional fraternities in the country. Lambda Chi Alpha takes con- siderable satisfaction in the fact that a member can go from coast to coast, sleeping each night in one of its affiliated frater- nity houses. Taking an actual and active interest in the Epsilon Pi Chapter, faculty advisors Professor George D. Quigley of the Poultry Division of the College of Agriculture and Dr. John E. Jacobi of the Sociology Department of the College of Arts and Sciences, have been helpful throughout the year in the fields of scholar- ship, finances, and other phases of the fraternity ' s life. Priding itself on its versatility. Lambda Chi Alpha is not com- posed primarily of athletes nor campus leaders, but of ordinary students, who have come to the University for an education, not a reputation. Encouraging extra-curricular activities, however, as long as they do not interfere with studies. Lambda Chi Alpha has members who are prominent in publications, sports, and dramatics. Drawing its members from no one branch of the Uni- versity, the membership is almost egually distributed in the de- partments of chemistry, science, arts, agriculture, and engineer- ing. The obvious democratic aspect of the fraternity gives a base around which is easily moulded a web of friendship that is felt and appreciated by every member. In future years when memory functions, there will be recalled the vagaries of the brothers: Diligent Dick Carroll winning his " A. " . . . " Clutzie " Close, demon radio maniac. . . . Chopin Chopping Art Stillings brushing a deft hand over keys to the deaf ear of Thespian Bill Esmond, who strikes dramatic poses to the slight interest and intense amusement of " Casanova " Glenn Ermold and " Don Juan " Marty Muma as they pause a moment en route dateward. . . . " Wild Bill " Herbert croaks a current hit tune as " Hit the Books " Nelson grumbles over the aspect of coming examinations. . . . Over a battered card table flows an incessant stream of sarcasm as the Corridon brothers do mortal combat at double solitaire. . . . Don " Deadeye Dick " Damuth argumentatively compares his arsenal with that of " Soldier " Nelson Jones, while " Prexy " Gifford views the whirling scene with feigned disgust. « 230 » LAMBDA CHI ALPHA First row: Carroll ' 40, Close ' 39, Corridon ' 38, Esmond ' 40.

The Tau Epsilon Phi House has withstood rain, snow, wind, flood, and the antics of lusty brethren for ten years. At the present time, externally as well as internally, the Tep house, synonymous to Tep men and the Tep nam e, seems in best of health with indications of a long-lasting permanence. This permanence not only manifests itself in the aforementioned things but also in Happy Rosen ' s never-ceasing smile . . . Roomy Mitch Sokal ' s sweet monotone quoting Tennyson, much to the resentment of student Larry Auerbach, just across the hall. . . . Li ' l Donny Bierer, whose hobby is raising his pet bull, Oscar, bemoaning the fact that some day roommate Al Salganik ' s father will package him. The other Al-Goldberg-alias SOX one-two — debating with Intercollegiate Champ Benny Alperstein on just what ' s what in the fight racket. . . . Slide-rule majors Irving " Petty " Phillips, Irving Yank Etkind, Eli four-point Elvove, and Micky four-basket Mulitz, constructing dream castles over their physics books, while Gabby Lehman clocks the nightmares which play havoc with his dreams. . . . Brother Sachs trying to edge onto the four-seater couch between pledges Norm Meyerson and Box Abramson, while Butch Peregoff disputes the bridge ability of his partner and at the same time forgets to follow suit. Yock Yochelson is often seen confiding in Political Science Atkins — apparently it is the campus or the national political situation Yock is interested in, or maybe it is just a common love interest.

I-fere are Leo Siegel, " Rags " Rogoff, and " Bull " Tyser burning the proverbial midnight oil. . . . Now and then the tranquillity is broken by the mountaineer, " Zeke " Abrams, who is practicing with his foil to settle once and for all that feud way back in West Virginia. The spirit of college does not end for the Sigma Alpha Mus at graduation, for they have created one of Maryland ' s strongest alumni groups, thus keeping forever alive their cherished university days. « 234 » PHI ALPHA EPSILON CHAPTER Founded at George Washington University in 1914 Established at the University of Maryland in 1919 President Bernard Yockelson Vice-President Morton Bloom Secretary Burton D.

It is responsible for rushing regulations among sororities and cooperates with the college adminis- tration in upholding high scholastic standards. At the beginning of rush season, the Pan-Hellenic Council sponsored teas at the various houses, promoting better acguaintance between sorority and non sorority women, and in April held a progressive dinner, at which time each sorority contributed a course of the meal. A dance followed the dinner. « 237 » SORORITY LIFE Fun, work, mischief, and grief all go to make up life in a sorority house. It may seem a hectic one while being lived but it makes pleasant memories for those who pass through the portals of any Greek home. Teas, formal dinners, lectures, dances, and dates call for great activity on the part of sorority girls and studying other times crowds their minutes to the utmost. In the evenings there is always time, however, for girls to amble from room to room discussing coiffures, latest styles, eats, and boys. Then late at night they make ready for sleep only to find " pie beds " made by some loving sister. Regardless of such frivolities, the experi- ence of being with sorority sisters makes a. girl better developed socially and intellectually.

ALPHA PI CHAPTER XTS doors guarded by the Stars and Crescent insig- nia, the newly-erected Georgian home of Delta Delta Delta stands on College Avenue, the pseudo-frater- nity row of the University. Affiliated with one of the strongest national groups in the country. Alpha Pi Chapter has established an enviable record in the four active years of its existence on the campus. Aided by Mrs. Claribel Welsh, professor in the Col- lege of Home Economics, and scholarship advisor to the chapter, the soror ity has always been among the first in the University ' s scholastic rating. Proud of the advancement of their group, the Tri-Delts, whose in- terests are as numerous as the states from which they come, are leaders not only in curricular but also in extra-curricular activities. In the congenial atmosphere of the attractively fur- nished house, the " " sisters " share study hours, bridge games, and social amnesties with their southern housemother, Mrs. Franklin. Ever present at all func- tions is ruddy-coated and much beloved ' " Winkie, " cocker spaniel mascot of the group. Remember the members of ' 38? . . . Remember President Arlene McLaughlin and her Irish wit. . . . Heated discussions on dramatics by Thespians Lois Ernest, Judy Greenwood, and Sugar Langford. . . .

Birthday parties with favors in the cake, the popular sun roof made for basking in spring, the after-dark walk to the post office, late discussions on the third floor with the added treat of cokes and cheese crack- ers — all these, seeming trivial, add to studies and friendships the final touch that makes college years memorable.

BETA ETA CHAPTER Founded at Lombard College in 1893 Established at the University of Maryland in 1934 President Margaret Swanson Vice-President Dorothy Wall Treasurer Marguerite Jefferson Secretary Ellen Talcott IT ERSONIFYING the spirit of real Southern hospitality which pervades the chapter house of Alpha Xi Delta is the gracious housemother, Mrs. Thomas Jefferson Randolph, IV. Bidding us enter, she introduces us to the girls awaiting " meeting time. " Arguing among themselves are the ardent bridge fans, Kitty Adkins, Mary Krumpach, Ruth Shamberger, and Janet Werner. . . . Quietly " kibitzing " are Audrey Jones and Sue Stevens. . . . Nearby, presiding over the house bills, is tiny Jeff Jefferson, treasurer. Laughing Lois McComas embarrasses sensitive Libby Smith by telling tales out of school. . . . On being forgiven, she leads the way to the piano. . . . Mistress-of-ceremonies Lois Teal organizes a " sing, " aided by talented Eileen Neumann, Barbara Lewis, and Kitty Aiello. . . . Everyone joins on the choruses. One long and three short knocks at the door marks the exit of Dot Wall. Leaving at the same time in order to keep up that enviable average of hers is Nell Talcott. Suave Doris DeAlba and redhead Betty McCormac are not far behind. President Margaret Swanson proudly shows blue-prints of the new chapter house which is under construction on a nearby lot. Her enthusiasm is so contagious that we find ourselves longing to be able to share this college home with the girls who wear the Golden Quill.

" Gay old time " symbolizes these co-eds, yet they manage to stay one of the very highest in scholarship rating. Eight-nineteen a.m. finds the sorority dashing away in sleepy-eyed little groups to make eight-twenty classes. . . . Potential home-makers Helen Kaylor, Kack Bohman, Jo Good, Josephine Allen trip down the hill to the University ' s domestic center, the Home Economics Building, where they learn to cook, sew, and spin. . . . Music maestro of sorority ceremonies is brunette Flo Small; spends her spare time at the piano, surrounded by singing sisters Esther Gross, Isabel Hamilton, Betty Shaffer — favorite songs: " Basin Street, " " Miss Otis. " . . . Solitaire fiends of the chapter are golden-haired Adria Smith, petite Mary Lee Ross, and Perky Holt; they do their daily dozen with cards. . . . Honorary society magnate is Ida Fisher, laden with the duties of Omicron Nu and Mortar Board. . . . Most often on the telephone- -Beauteous Mary Speake; married Vera Walker Hutton; blonde, blue-eyed Mary Dow. Patient Housemother Mrs. Washburn clangs the lunch gong; chattering mob of sisters gather at the long table; wangle over the day ' s trivia — dresses, quizzes, demented pro- fessors. Afternoon means gossip sessions in Georgia Blalock ' s room; long, involved sessions, with Margaret Crisp, Ruth Koenig, violinist Doris DuShane, office-holding Jane Kephart, Doris Dunnington, Jane Hilton, Evelyn Sullivan. . . . Radios break up annoying calm. . . . Over theirs, shout sleek Frances Wolf and her roommate, style-conscious Evelyn lager. . . . Editor Chris Kempton finds a corner to huddle among her " Old Line " proofs. . . . Music-mad Elaine Danforth " trucks " away spare hours, with Judy King at the piano. . . . Out meeting dates are faithful Ginny Faul and Ginger Long. . . . Studious members Peggy Thomas, Sara Stoddard, Marie Robinette, find quieter rooms — typical rooms in a sorority house, with pictures of old loves and new, staring with photographic handsomeness from frames on bureaus. At twilight the rush starts to the heart of the University the Grill. . . . And night is typified with dates standing patiently, hatless, in the hall for the long wait. Then one and two o ' clock; heavy-eyed girls in hair-curlers, trailing in kimonos from room to room, starting more sessions. There is fragrance of late-hour coffee being made in the kitchen, and dark quiet, at long last, with only the drip of a faucet somewhere. Every year ambitious Kappa Deltas put on a Revue, which runs two nights; consists sometimes of a Wild West Show; often a melodrama; sometimes just vaudeville. Then the sorority, en masse, learns the thrill of the works of back stage; of painting, prompting, propping, the shouting out of lines to the University ' s wild and woolly audience. Classes are punctuation marks to a gay life of house dances, overnight parties, teas, banquets, and hi-de-ho. Faculty son, Mary Henderson, Bernice Jones, Susan Barman, Alma H. Preinkert.

Mrs. Antoinette L. Chalker Housemother JLiIVE alone and like it " has recently been a popular slogan. But the Phi Sig girls, who this year for the first time share a sorority house, find that it is much more fun to live together. United by the strong ties of friendship and loyalty, they have shared their fortunes in a cozy home. At the helm is Faye Snyder, helpful, diminutive Archon, who has guided the sorority in reaching high standards in every endeavor. . . . Gertrude Cohen, an ace performer at social functions, has spread geniality wherever it was needed. . . . Bernice Grodjesk, outstanding for her fine scholastic attain- ments, is appreciated just as much for her interest in the little home. Peals of laughter that resound throughout the house morning, noon, or night, are unmistakably those of Lynn Kaufman and Harriett Levin, without whose gay spirits and " Joie de vivre " life in Phi Sigma Sigma would not be complete. ... To Bunny Molofsky is extended gratefulness for coiffure innovations and opinions on what the well-dressed college girl should wear. . . . Bernice Jacobs, the young sophisticate, has contributed a great deal to the harmonious relationships in the new house. Sheba Potts is usually discussing " Canterbury Tales " or the skillful use of grease paint, but it is still grand to have her around. . . . Ethel Levine, the mortgage and ipso facto gal, is an interesting member of the group. . . . Ruth Rubin and Shir- ley Biskin must be thanked for their rare interpretations of the terpsichoreanart a la " Lindy Hop " and " Shag. " . . . Ann Rosin and Beverly Oppenheimer have given to the sorority their most famous deductions on the much-discussed subject of love. . . . Last, but by no means least, Lillian Katz, authority on Shakes- peare and a perfectly grand girl, has added lots of zest to the many enjoyable fireside chats. Phi Sigs will always keep fresh in their memories a picture of the activities in their first sorority house, where they lived, worked, and shared life together. « 250 » PHI SIGMA SIGMA €h _CV ™j Mi First row: Biskin ' 39, Cohen ' 38, Grodjesk ' 38, Jacobs ' 38, Katz ' 38.

U ' NDER the stately and protective roof of Dormitory B lives a group of girls, members of Alpha Sigma. Although they are scattered throughout the building, the bond of friendship which exists among them over- comes the distances. Among the Alpha Sigmas, Betty Bloom will always be remembered advocating Sun-Kissed oranges mixed with her constant mumblings of chemistry formulas. . . . Eleanor Snyder, repeating " Only four more days until Friday. " . . . Sylvia Waldman, rush- ing off to play rehearsals. . . . Irene Checket, moni- tor of the third floor, uttering the eternal cry, " Quiet hour. " . . .

Two of the more studious members often seen at their work are Janet Steinberger, busily reading history, and Chick Cohen, taking blood counts for Hematology class. When the Alpha Sigmas go 6ut into the world with other people, memories of fine friendships made in their sorority will not easily be forgotten. « 252 » ¥mmsmL. — First row: Almony ' 40, Crocker ' 39, Fowble ' 39, Gold- smith ' 38, Grotlisch ' 39.

There the Kappa Alpha Sigmas have spent many happy hours together, forming friendships among themselves and building traditions for future members.

Chillie Stabler going over her notes on v hat things should be done. . . . Marty Hickman and Dot Hussong giggling all to themselves. . . . Clara Goldbeck proudly wearing her Alpha Lambda Delta corsage. . . . Jane Beals instinc- tively straightening up the room.

In the fall he shines shoes sings operatic arias for the edification of upperclassmen, and prays for rain. In the winter he duclcs snowballs and shivers as they hurtle through the windows. In the spring he peers furtive y from behind stairs and underneath trash cans in order to avoid the water bags. Veritably, lite in the boys ' dorm is a peaceful one. LIFE JLlFE is somewhat more subdued in the girls ' dormitory than in the boys ' sections. Snow- balls and water bags do not fly through the halls with such abandon. In fact, life at the girls ' dorms may be truthfully said to have reached a civilized state. As the reader may see for himself, checkers, clothes, and dates are the principal centers of interest.
