Martin, who stands as a symbol of the progress to come for a great nation and for this University as a part of the nation. As his contribution to aeronautics has been an integral part in the winning of victory it will also aid in the maintaining of a peace complete with understanding and sympathy for all humanity. The vast interest and incalculable aid Mr. Martin has given to the University toward the furthering of aeronautical engineering and research will not stop here but will spread out in ever-expanding circles to encompass the nation and ulti- mately the earth. Through aircraft, nations will be bound more closely; through a knowledge of air- craft and its meanings our students will be ready to accept the challenge offered in a new world. Glenn L. Martin has made possible for us, the men and women of tomor- row, to carry forward the standards of progress after the flags of embittered nations have been dropped forever.

Graduate School C ounci l1 The Graduate School Council, primarily concerned with establishing requirements for degrees and inves- tigating and approving candidates, has continued to train students in the field of research, teaching and commerce. The Council, composed of the faculty, who are instructors in the school, offers instruction to college graduates, holders of Master ' s degrees, and advanced under-graduate students at College Park and in Baltimore. Dean of the Graduate School Council since the es- tablishment of that department in 1919 is Dr. Charles O. Appleman. Doctor Appleman received his degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Bacteriology at the Uni- versity of Chicago after graduating from Dickinson College, where he specialized also in botany and plant physiology. Before assuming his duties at Mary- land University, Dean Appleman traveled widely, covering Mexico, Canada, and most of the United States. With the cooperation of the Federal Research cen- ter at Beltsville and the laboratories of the Bureaus of Df.a.v C. O. Applhman Mines and Fisheries on the campus, facilities for grad- uate work have been increased. Industrial firms and the Federal Government have established fellowships, giving outside support to graduate and research work. Although the teaching staff has decreased and the number of students increased, the Graduate School Council continued to offer facilities for study leading toward all graduate degrees. The degrees offered are Master of Art, Master of Science, Master of Educa- tion, Master of B usiness Administration, and the de- gree of Doctor of Philosophy. Seated: Pyle, Appleman, Kemp. Stiinding: Joyal, Drake, Clark, Zukcr, James. 17 Responsible for the beginnings of the College Park branch of the University of Maryland is the College of Agriculture. In its Technical, Scientific, and Spe- cial fields, the College of Agriculture has trained stu- dents for agricultural and related occupations, and conducted systematic investigations on projects of im- College of Agriculture portance to agricultural interests concerning the home and the farm. Its four principal functions are Resident Instruction, Research, Extension and Regulatory. Not only does the College fit its young men and women for one or more of the fields requiring specialized training, hut it provides sufficient cultural subjects to give a rounded education. Today the American farmer is more important to the world than he has ever been. He is feeding an America and a world at war. The College of Agricul- ture is fitting young people for a today of war and a tomorrow of peace. Dean T. B. Sy. WR f AssiSTA.ST DiA.s ' IIakoi.1) F.

In the junior and senior years, the student completes a close- ly unified group of courses leading toward vocational, professional, or cultural goals. The v ork of the last two years is divided into four Upper Divisions, grouped under the following departments: Biological Sciences, Humanities, Physical Sciences and Social Sciences. Looking in on one oj the many classes. Despite the fact that many of its staff has left the University to engage in active war work, the College of Arts and Sciences has continued to maintain high standards and to offer the best courses possible for pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-law students. Although many of the Army Specialized Training students left the University early in the year, those who remained were trained by the College in those subjects required. m If Taking full advantage of the proximity of two large metropolitan centers to study the problems of economics and commerce, the College of Business and Public Administration, formerly the College of Com- merce, offered both technical and vocational curricula. Instruction is offered in Business Administration, Sec- retarial Training, Public Administration, and in dc- College of Business and Public Administration partments of Foreign Trade and Human and Natural Resources. Students, with the training they receive, may enter fields of business organization, personnel management, state administration, and international exchange. The College of Business and Public Administration continued to aid in the war effort by training students of the Army Specialized Training and the Language and Area Programs. The College now bases all its training in various fields of specialization in the study of economics, which is the background for all administrative prob- lems and structures.

Ready to show the young people of the nation a better way of life will be the teachers trained by the College of Education. The college offers courses for those who wish to teach in the secondary, preparatory, and vocational schools. Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science de- grees are given in Arts and Science, Agriculture, Com- mercial, Home Economics, Industrial and Physical Education. Acting Dean Arnold E. Joyal has led in the effort to make a reality of the dream of a twelve-year public school plan in Maryland. ll ' hafs new? Acting Dean Arnold E. Joyal 21 ColL ege o f En ineerin Dean S. S. Steinberg Under the guidance of Dean S. S. Steinberg, the College has trained enlisted men in the Army Spe- cialized Training Program; has prepared men to be- come officers in the ground and air forces of the Army and the Navy; has conducted classes for men and women of the State of Maryland to prepare them for work to expedite war production; and has trained students for work in industrial plants. It has provided the professional engineers needed to design and to Jn one of ibc labs. construct for victory. Although the principal aim of the College is to train young men and women for the profession of Engineering, it insists that they have sufficient cul- tural courses to equip them for their duties as citizens. The College of Engineering includes the Depart- ments of Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. 22 College of Home Economics J je lalcit s(v fs " 1 the i iakiiul The first aim of the College of Home Economics is to train young women in home making; the second, to prepare women students for professional work. Co- operating with the war effort, the College has stressed the latter. It is realized that a strong home could mean little to a defeated nation, and students have been and are continuing to be prepared for work that can aid in successfully ending the war. The College of Home Economics is organized into Dean Marie Mount the Departments of Foods and Nutrition; Textiles, Clothing and Art; and Home and Institution Man- agement. A home management house is maintained to give the students practical application experience. Students having high scholastic averages may be elected to Omicron Nu, national Home Economics honor society. The Home Economics Club is affiliated with the American Home Economics Association. w? - 23 With the armed services in desperate need oi nurses, the University of Maryland has accelerated its nurse ' s training without lowering its high stand- ards. The student nurses arc able to acquire a Bach- School of N ursm elor of Science degree by attending the University at College Park for two years and completing two more years of training at the LIniversity branch in Balti- more. Having unlimited use of fully equipped University Hospital, the students may obtain practical instruc- tion in psychiatric training through an affiliation of the University with the Shephard and Enoch Pratt Hospital and may be introduced to public health nursing by the Western Health District of the City Health Department. All branches of nursing from dermatology and surgery through emergency work in the accident wards are offered for study. Shim RiNii SDiM l v H.

At their graduation ceremony in the women ' s Held house at eleven o ' clock, the Reverend Dr. Joseph 1 . Peaslee, of the Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church of Baltimore, graduate of the University of Maryland in the class of 1939, gave the invocation and the benediction.

Byrd. The deans of the respective colleges presented the candidates for degrees. Unlike the usual March day, March twenty-sixth was a sweltering hot day, and the graduates, garbed in the traditional black cap and gown, felt the heat even more than the audience did. The Reverend Mr. Nathaniel C. Acton, Rector, St. Andrews Church, College Park, delivered the invocation and the bene- diction, and George Irving Chandler, soloist, sang " The Cross " and " Cielo e Mar. " The address, given by Mr. Wendell F. Dunn, principal of the Forest Park High School, was of great significance to both audience and graduates.

Although left behind by the students of the University who accelerated their education and graduated ahead of their classmates of their freshman year, the June graduates enjoyed the glamour connected with a con- ferring of degrees in the traditional month of graduations, June. Spring came early in 1945, but the June class knew the miseries of the change- able weather in College Park. Walking over the campus under a burning sun one day and over the same campus in three inches of mud the next came to be second nature to the students; however, the would-be graduates worked through a season that was both hot and cold and were presented degrees of Bachelors of Science and of Art by President Byrd.

Quali- fications for membership, besides character, intelli- gence, and campus leadership, include outstanding achievement in five phases of college life: scholarship, social and religious affairs, publications, athletics and speech, music, and ilramatic arts. Determined that, despite present conditions, all prospective members of O.D.K. should be tapped on the basis of pre-war standards of leadership, Mary- land ' s Sigma Circle has operated under extremely critical conditions during the past year. Departure of practically all active members left hardly a nucleus with which to carry on the functions of the fraternity. The depletion of the University ' s male enrollment threatened to seriously curtail or eliminate the source of future qualified members. Steps were taken as far back as 194. , fortimately, to assure the continued operation of the Circle should all stutlent members graduate or enter the armed serv- ice. Responsibilit) ' for carrying on the fimctions of the honorary were placed in the hands of four active members, who were given the authority to elect and initiate qualified student leaders. For a short priod in the summer of 1 944 there were no student members on campus, but the faculty ac- tives, James Reid, Russell Allen, Dr. Ronald Bam- ford, and Dr. Charles White, kept the society alive and in September tapped Bill Scull and Bob Spence. Scull served as president for two quarters following his initiation and was succeeded by Spence. At no time during this period did student membership ex- ceed three men. Omicron Delta Kappa is looking ahead to the fu- ture, the time, not far distant, when total membership will somewhat resemble that of a few years ago. JVfc ' Hi ' c ' is.

Mortar Board Senior Women ' s Honorary Society Founded at SWARTHMORE COLLEGE in 1918 Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1934 MORTAR Board, senior women ' s honor society, taps second and third quarter junior women who have an all-time scholastic average of 2.7 or above and who have done outstanding work in extra- curricular activities. Tapping in the spring occurs at the May Day celebration and in the winter at the Christmas pageant. Members wearing the traditional cap and gown walk about the audience and ask the new tappees one by one to join the file. At the beginning of the fall quarter a nine-page letter composed of information needed by freshman women was drawn up and sent to all incoming fresh- man girls. Welcoming parties at the start of each quarter, " Smarty Parties " for students who have maintained a 3.7 average during their first year of college and are therefore eligible to be tapped, and after-dinner dances on Wednesday evenings were sponsored by Mortar Board. This year, for the first time, Mortar Board mem- bers distinguished themselves by wearing blazers of the school colors with a Mortar Board Seal, designed by the members, on the pocket. 2tc)iibcrs: Nancy Ames, Dorothy Douglas, Selma Helm, Ruth Lingle, Elinor McDonnell, Helen McKee, Wanda Pelczar, Eliza- beth Ring, Jean Rowley, Ann Troxell, Elizabeth Weston. 7acuHy: Dr. Rachel Benton, Miss Rosalie Leslie, Miss Adele H.

PHI Kappa Phi, an honorary fraternity composed of representatives from all the colleges within the University, celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary at the University this June. Furthering the fulfillment of its motto, " the love of learning rules the world, " the organization encourages scholarship and character by offering membership to seniors who rank in the upper ten per cent of their respective colleges. Because of the accelerated program, it has been necessary to tap eligible seniors every quarter. More than one junior woman looks forward to the day when she might become a member of Phi Kappa Phi, one of the most honored societies at the University, for members benefit not only for the prestige the honorary bestows but also from associations with alumni who have continued contacts with the cam- pus and have contributed encouragement and interest to the achievements of the active college group. The Phi Kappa Phi 1 lonor Society was founded at the University of iVlaine in 1897 by men who saw the need nt an honor society formetl on broatler lines than any then in existence. It was broadened into a national honor association by the action of a com- mittee composed of A. W. Harris, then president of the University of Maine; C. W. Dabney, then presi- dent of the University of Tennessee; and, George Q. Atherton, then president of Pennsylvania State Col- lege. The chapters in these institutions were the orig- inal chapters and are now represented by the three stars of the seal. There are, however, forty-eight chapters at present. Phi Kappa Phi has given recognition to more than seven hundred Maryland students since its founding at the University in l ' )20. The honorary, in addition to its activities in honoring scholastic achievement through membership, has awarded several fellowships. Miss Edna B. McNaughton served the organization as president and Mrs. Margaret T. Goldsmith as vice president, while Miss Lenna L. Gross acted as secre- tary-treasurer and Mr. Joshua Liese as journal cor- respomlent. Memben-. Graduatp. Scmooi. : Aitluir II. Thompson. Coi.i.i:c,i; 01- Arts and Scihncp.s: Morton A. Hymnn, Honey M.

At the beginning of the school year, the fraternity gave a tea to welcome the incoming freshman women, providing them with an opportunity to meet the other members of their class, and serving as a means of acquainting them with the organization and the fac- ulty. In order to help the underclass students select their major, Alpha Lambda Delta sponsored a series of informal talks and discussions under the leadership of professors from the various departments of the Uni- versity, as the psychology, sociology, and modern lan- guages. The fraternity joined the Senior women ' s honorary, Mortar Board, in bringing to the campus representatives from industry, the professions, and the service for conferences with the university women to guide them in their choice of a career after graduation. Regular business meetings were held once a month, and the faculty advisor. Miss Marian Johnson, often brought the girls together for informal gatherings in order to visit places of interest in Washington, to dis- cuss current books, and to see educational movies.

Phi Eta Sigma National Men ' s Freshman Honor Society Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS in 1923 Chartered at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1940 Pm Eta Sigma, national organization designed to honor high scholastic attainment of men students in their freshman year, requires for entrance an aver- age of 3.5 in the first quarter, first two quarters, or all three quarters of the freshman year. Although the war has curtnilcd the activities of the society, its members have tried to maintain a function- ing organization, endeavoring to keep in cimtact with members now in the armed forces. With ixl .o serving as president and Max Schreiner as secretary- treasurer, the honorary has struggled through a year with an extremely small membership. Because of the decreased membership, much of the burden of keeping the organization active has fallen upon Mr. Carl i lintz, faculty advisor. Ed Lord left the Liniversity in jnnunry, but while he was here he served as president of the Independent Students Union and as president of the Baptist Stu- dent Union. Still on campus and still active were Ed Zeigler and Bernard Lubarsky, president and secre- tary, respectively, of Tau Beta Pi. Zeigler also held an office in the American Society of Civil Engineers. Ballard, although now serving in the army, was a member of Omicron Delta Kappa while liere, and Arnold Seigel was a F ' hi Kappa Phi, senior honorar - member. I ' hi Eta Sigma Kahn was a member of A.l.Ch.E., proving that students who are initiated into the freshman honorary are taking the primary step toward further achievements. Phi Eta Sigma is espe- ciallv proud of member Morton Silverstein, a gradu- ate student who was outstanding on campus for his ,v9 average ani.1 who has transferred to M.I.T. and became an honor student there. Throughout the year smokers were held to intro- iluce the new members to the faculty.

The fraternity had grown before the war to number more than fifty active chapters at colleges and universities throughout the country and to include seventeen professional chapters and ten professional groups. Students with a 2.5 or better scholastic aver- age, having completed at least one and a half years as a Chemistry or Chemical Engineering major, are eligible for membership. The local chapter is actually a social fraternity which draws its members from men who plan to enter chemistry as a profession, banding together men dur- ing their college life who desire to continue their fra- ternity affiliations beyond their school careers. Officers of Alpha Rho chapter for the year were: John A. Carman, president; W. Mayo Smith, vice- president; Paden F. Dismore, recording secretary; William E. Lusby, corresponding secretary; and John Sterling, treasurer. !Memhcrs: Roland Adams, Ernst Solberg, William Lusby, Walter Weed.

Sigma Alpha Omicron Honorary Bacteriology Society Founded at WASHINGTON STATE COLLEGE in 1925 Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1932 Sk;ma Alpha Omicrox revised its constitution to change the orga nization from an honorary to a professional fraternity. In 1934 the bacteriology club joined Sigma Alpha Omicron at Washington State College and became established as an honorary society on this campus. In pre-war years, the society was able to accomplish its aims organized in that fashion, but the wartime enrollment has decreased the mem- bership to such a great extent that progress became almost impossible. Keeping SAO members busy was a sanitation sur- vey of the campus. Due to the labor shortages and the increasing difficulty in obtaining new equipment, the administration was not able to keep sanitation in- spections up to the level to s ' hich the Llni ' ersit) ' was accustomed. The dining hall, however, from the stantlpoint ol cleanliness, was in excellent condition. All was not work for SAO members. In the fall the group ga ' e a reception for bacteriology majors and facultw Later, initiations and a banquet in the dining hall were held. Dr. Crcich and Dr. Schneiter were guest speakers at SAO meetings. ,1IcimIh ' is.

The setting and maintaining of high journalistic standards for campus publications and the encouragement of student work in this field are the functions of Pi Delt. To be eligible for initiation into the honorary a student must have outstanding work on one of the University publications to his credit. Since gradua- tions are so frequent with the quarter system, the former requirement of two years ' work has been re- duced to one year; however, despite the lesser num- ber of students, Pi Delta Epsilon has continued to maintain its high standards. The initiation in the spring was held in conjunction with the Pi Delta Epsilon chapter at George Wash- ington University. The new tappees included Jean Rowley, Lovedy Pedlow, Emogene Simmons, Joyce Reside, and Wilson Schmidt. Although wartime restrictions have cut down on the customary social functions of the group, the tradi- tional picnics were held.

With the recognition and promotion of scholarship, leadership, and research in the field of home economics as its goal, the society carefully selected its members. Students with a scholastic average ranking in the upper one fifth of the group of students having jimior rating in the spring and in the upper one fourth of the students having senior rating in the fall following ini- tiation are eligible for tapping. The chapter selects not over fifteen per cent of the girls having senior rating and not over five per cent having junior rating and offers them membership in the organization. Knitting for the Red Cross and sponsoring the col - lection of cards and records for Rehabilitation Centers t)ccupied much of the time of Omicron Nu members, but they found time to become acquainted with, to entertain, and to help the Brazilian coeds in home ec so that they might understand Maryland and its tra- ditions. Following a tradition of long standing, each year Omicron Nu presents an awnid to the freshman girl in the College of Home Economics who has the high- est scholastic average. Last year the award went to Hilda joska. Omicron Nu has been on the Maryland campus since 1937, when it was installetl as Alpha Zeta chap- ter of the national society. .l t iil ' crv Jane Adams, Carolyn Buck, Dorothy Cosebooni, Jean Engeibacli, Ruth Lingle, Phyihs Pahncr, Margaret Emma Richardson, Peggy Snouffer, .Mary Spiehiian, Kay Weston.

Selecting the most attractive girls on campus was not an easy task, but with the help of John Powers, yllademoiselle magazine, and students, the beauties were chosen. At the Black and Gold Ball, Phyllis Thompson was crowned as " Miss Touchdown. " " Pat " had been chosen as the favorite of the football team because of her popularity and good looks. Through the sponsor- ship of the Diamondback a " Queen of the 1944 Pledge Classes " was chosen. Each sorority was asked to select its most attractive pledge, and representa- tives from the various fraternities named Sally Dunn- ington as the most outstanding. The Jerrapiu, want- ing a queen of its own, sponsored a beauty contest, and ' y liidenwiselle magazine ' s beauty experts selected Betty Heyser from the candidates presented. In 1944, John Powers, head of one of the country ' s best known model agencies, was asked to select, from photographs sent to him, the " Queen of the Military Ball. " Mr. Powers selected Dorothy McLean, who was crowned at the ball. The new Independent Students Union, at their I.S.U. Doll Dance, selected and crowned Barbara McCutcheon as the first " I.S.U. Doll.

Pep rallies, singing and cheering assem- blies were conducted by the cheerleading squad, and the traditional Freshmen Assemblies v ere held to acquaint the incoming students with campus leaders. Dr. Byrd addressed the groups and chairman Dotty Douglas introduced student leaders. A Student Ac- tivities Registration Bureau was set up to aid campus organizations in the enrolling of new members. October 1, marked the third annual Autumn Car- nival, highlighted this year by the selection of " Miss Touchdown " by the football team. " Miss Touch- clown " was crowned at the Black and Gnkl Ball bv Les Daly, captain of the team, and at the ame wa presented with a football autographed by the team. In early December, rather than having individual campaigns, the Student Board established an Elections Committee that conducted the campaigning and pub- licity of the Student Board elections. The newly elected officers were installed at the Student Assem- bly on December 1 1 and were entertained at a dinner given by Dr. Byrd for student leaders. Officers for the year were Chairmen Dotty Douglas and Randy Scholl; First Vice Chairmen Les Smith and Bob Spence; Second Vice Chairmen Elinor McDonnell and Jerry Cleaver, and Women ' s Member at Large Shirley Wilson and Belle Calmes.

STUDENT - GOMIRNM: CFNTRAL BITIEM ' 66 Student Victory Council THE Student Victory Council was established by the Student Board in 1942 to further student participation in the war effort. Although at first it was a committee of only a few interested participants, it has grown to include representatives of each dormi- tory, sorority, and fraternity, and students working on the various projects sponsored by the Council. Its activities involve a variety of helpful war projects, in- cluding the sponsoring of the blood and war bond drives on campus, the collecting of scrap, and collect- ing cigarettes for Smokes for Yanks drives. In the spring of 1944, a Red Cross College Unit was chartered under the auspices of the Victory Coun- cil, and the Council this year has expanded its activi- ties to include Red Cross canteen work, staff assistant work, and visits to rehabilitation centers. During the fall of 1944, a rally for the sale of war bonds was held in the form of an auction wherein students bid for the privilege of having members of the faculty do almost any original, often impleasant Signiiic) up to donate blood. task for them. Chairmen for the year were Dorothy Coseboom, Marjorie Falk, and Margaret Hughes. 67 Women ' s League INVESTED with authority over the women students of the University, Women ' s League formulated and enforced the rules and regulations pertaining to the conduct of coeds on campus. Any woman student who breaks a University rule must be presented to the League for punishment. Due to the increase in women students, the Wom- en ' s League had to revise its rules and present a newer edition of rule books. The constitution of the organ- ization was rewritten to meet the needs of the Uni- versity when it converts to the semester system. A pamphlet containing " do ' s and don ' ts " for college women was written by members of the League and will be distributed to freshman women. Under the direction of Jean Warfield, Women ' s League members worked in cooperation with other groups to organize a Christmas program. A large Christmas tree was decorated by the League, and the guest speaker, a war veteran who officially opened the program by lighting the tree, was sponsored by the association. The Women ' s League sponsored many and sup- ported all of the various drives of the University, whether pertaining to the war or directly to the stu- dents on campus. Carolyn Moody was chosen by members of the organization as chairman of the an- nual May Day celebration, special project of Women ' s League.

For nearly a year students in College Park tramped through mud and bore the blowing of dust in their faces as they watched two buildings being constructed. Suddenly, as though overnight, the brain children of Dr. Byrd and the state were fully grown. Even more quickly the lawns, beautifully terraced, were covered with green grass and the beauty of the campus was increased by two lovely dormitories in the Georgian style of architecture typical of Maryland and the South. Although constructed for men students, the dormitories were occupied by the girls. The new dormitories are a real example of the continuous ex- panding of the University.

Women ' s Chorus ON December 17, 1944, the Women ' s Chorus, consisting of ninety talented coeds, traveled at their own expense to the Newton Haker Hospital at Martinsburg, West Virt inin. There they went from ward to ward singing to the convalescing veterans. With the other members of the chorus furnishing the musical background, Meredith Schmidt, Mary Harry Davis, and Annie Lee Mallonee sang solos. The event was such a success that President Wanda Pelczar re- ceived a letter from the hospital asking her and her fellow choriisters to return. After having entertained servicemen at Port Meade, the Laurel U.S.O., the Naval Academy, and the Stage Door Canteen in Washington last year, the chorus revisited the men it the armetl forces at these places, offering new choral antl solo arrangements. In addition, a show was presented to the men ami women at Bethesda Naval Hospital. Chorus members participated in the Christmas Pageant sponsored by the Footlight Club, and, as in previous years, performetl at the annual May Day celebration. 1)1 . Iv.lllJ.lll ill.

Under the able leadership of Harlan " Doc " Randall, professor of music, and with many of the returned veterans in its ranks, the club has increased in size and popularity. After a full year ' s activities, the Men ' s Glee Club, this year led by Kent Kise, promises to become once more one of the outstanding campus groups. Under the able direction of Harlan Randall, who has worked for ten years to build a University orchestra, the University of Maryland Student Orchestra took part in many University functions throughout the year. At each quarter graduation, the Orchestra played a major role and May Day would have been incomplete without its classical and semi-classical music. Working in conjunction with other musical organizations, the Or- chestra presented the Spring Musical Festival. The members also played at various functions on campus, including teas and dramatic productions. Orchestra Thsl Kow: Dr. Randall, John- son, Wallace, Baker, Mickey, Mr. Powers. Second Jioir.

Footlight Club I iii; Uni ' eisity Footlight Club, as college dramat- i ic organizations all over the country, was greatly affected by the war. The manpower shortage took its toll of leading men anil crew hands, and materials for the building of sets were almost impossible to ac- quire. Yet, because of its reorganization, the Footlight Club progressed. In the spring of 1944, for the first time in its his- liohhic UXcc rcveah hci ' -clj us the s()y in " Cry T rti ' oc ' tory, the club was put under the guidance of the Speech Department of the University, with Dr. R. Ehrensberger serving as advisor. Cry " Hiii ' oc, a story of the heroic nurses on Bataan, was presented in the spring of 1944. The play was the answer to the manpower question, for its cast was composed of women only. With the aid of extremely realistic sound effects, and dressed in men ' -; fatigue suits borrowed from the campus A.S.T. unit, the girls presented what many students considered the best play ever given on campus. With the fall quarter came Mr. William Dean, brought to the University especially to coach Foot- light Club plays. The first part of the quarter was de- voted to the cleaning of the workshop and to taking inventory of the materials on hand. Then work was begun on the Christmas play. The Footlight Club, backed by the Student Board, presented a Christmas pageant, hoping to start a tradition at Maryland. The play, It ' hy the Chimes Rdiuj, was supplemented by the lighting of a large Christmas tree, the singing of a select group of the Women ' s Chorus, and the present- Jhc stMW tTCir worked third. 82 A serious moment. ing of gifts by the sororities, fraternities, and inde- pendent groups. Members of the audience presented gifts wrapped in white. All contributions were turned over to the Interfaith Council for charity. Anxious to begin work on a full-length production. the club searched for a play that needed few men and few building materials. y lurdei ' iii a !AJi(Hiiery, a tense mystery story, was chosen as the winter production.

Starting the school year with a welcoming party for all Baptists on campus, the Bap- tist Student Union kept active by having exchange meetings with the Baptist Union at George Washington University and by holding regular inter-denominational noon de- votionals in addition to their regularly scheduled meetings. Former members now in the service were posted on the activities of the club through its newspaper. Under the guidance of the Reverend Mr. John Keister, the Lutheran Club had meet- ings twice monthly. These were often held in conjunction with other religious organiza- tions. The group, led by Helen Williams, was host to the Lutheran Club of George Washington University and visited the Lutheran Service Center in Washington, having the opportunity of seeing there the facilities ofifered to members of the armed services.

On the second and fourth Thursday of the month, the discussion group met. For a large part of the time, the group followed the text of Pope Pius XI ' s Encycli- cal Letter Casfi Coiuuihli, relating to Christian mar- riage. During the year a number of guest speakers were entertained at the meetings. Lt. Edward Kirch- ner. Director of the North American Secretariat of Pax Roman, explained the Newman Club ' s relation to Pax Roman, and international clearing house for Catholic organizations, and priests from Holy Cross College in Washington spoke on Catholic Action.

Under the supervision of Miss Fitzwater and with the co-operation of interested students, the Art Cluh was initiated in June of 1944. In order to become a member of the club, candidates submitted three draw- Thc (iii ' MjIifis rtilciliK inoiich. ings, which were consequent!) ' judged by the mem- liers. The artists met weekl)- in order to be entertained by motion pictures connected with art or to hear a guest speak on some subject of interest. Often, how- ever, they met merely to do still life or outdoor sketch- ing. Hikes were taken to enable the members to have the material to sketch, and the students themselves served as motlcls for the still life sketches. When Miss Titrwater left the University, Miss Cassels took over the job as advisor to the group. Un- lier the direction of I ' rcsielent Kay Weston, the club presented an art exhibit in the spring ant! accepted the responsii-)ilit - ot sketching the illustrations for the TtTdi ' iM jane I lcrshe ' served the club as its vice president and Ann Dickenson took notes, while Gloria I InfTinnn balantei.! the buiUet. 90 ►- • -«.— .

A student public opinion poll was undertaken by the members and successfully completed. The year was devoted to the planning and presenting of a program to give students experience in the practical applications of psychology. The Sociology Club was formed in the summer of 1944 to unite sociology majors, to bring them in contact with well-known sociologists, and to make the discussion of issues pertinent to sociologists possible.

Desiring to bind the fraterni- ties together to promote good feeling, the members met weekly to discuss the activities, rules, regulations, and details pertaining to the fraternities. Problems were considered and their apparent solutions dis- cussed, passed on, and put into effect. With the full participation of all the clubs, attention was called to the importance of athletics in fraternity life by an interfraternity track meet sponsored by the organization. Jack Thomas not only performed in a number of the events but also acted as chairman of the meet committee, arranged all the particulars and assured the success of the affair. Intramural sports, regulated by the Interfraternity Council, were particu- larly important to the fraternities as a means of arous- ing honest competition and an interest in sports. Supplementing its activities as the central agency for interfraternity athletics, the Council arranged various social activities for all the fraternities. Under the supervision of Bob Spence, president for the summer and tall ot l ' )41, a picnic dance at Greenbelt Lake was prepared. In spite of the heat, it tiuMied out to be one of the most successful interfraternity dances. With i ' age Chesser assuming the presidency for the winter of 1944 and 1945, the Council initiated admis- sion dances in the gym armory in order to raise funds. At the first admission dance Mel Mitchell ' s Debonairs furnished the iive and Page Chesser, Sigma Chi, was introduced as the new president of the Council; Harry Howden, Phi Kappa Sigma, as the vice presi- Bozman Frost K2 Bozici Howdeii 2X Ciiesscr 1 larrison 2AE HLitk Maskell WX llolljcs Spencer 100 dent; Kent Kise, Alpha Lambda Tau, as secretary; and Jack MacVeigh, Alpha Tau Omega, as treasurer. With the money raised by these dances the Council was able to sponsor a spring formal at Beaver Dam. To cheer the campus during its mid-winter slump, the Council sponsored a novel straw dance at the Phi Kappa Sigma House. High-lighting the evening was a spontaneous interfraternity sing. The Sigma Chi ' s won first prize for their singing, and Kappa Alpha, represented by soloist Charlie Williams, took second place. Throughout the year, with the cooperation of the sororities on campus, the Interfraternity Council spon- sored Friday night Rotary Dances. Since the fraterni- ties were without houses, the sororities furnished them with a place to hold their dances. Clwiser, yiowden, tacTciclh, and Kise — the ojficcrs.

Phi Delt was represented on the varsity football team by Richard Terry and Chuck Ryan, while Dick Terry was one of the varsity boxers. Pledge Harold Donofrio worked with the Clef and Key, and Prexy Frost was one of the Footlight Club ' s indispensable men. Canterbury Club saw Stanley Roth, Robert Bates, and Fmory Harman as members. Phi Delt, always active in sports, participated in the IVatcrnity Basketball League and garnered two vic- tories. Alex Bobenko, now attending medical school in Baltimore, returned to go undefeated in his two appearances on the varsity boxing team. Haltimorean Dick Terry pounded his way into the heavyweight boxing limelight, while brother Chuck Ryan, always faithful, was the mainstay of the cage team and was responsiiile f(H the two Phi Delt wins. For the time being the Phi Delta Thetas called the Tippett Towers their home. Winter elections showed Dick Bozman winning out as president, Chuck R) ' an as vice president. Bill Gruber as treasurer, and Emory Harman as secretary. The new president, whose heart beat in Baltimore, spent W.44% of his time there, while " Ole Zoot Suit " Bill Gruber, tired of col- lecting bills, burnetl the roads to Baltimore, where the very sight of him made the hearts of a telephone .ririii- out U ' fXil ' rtiu f iicu ' b. 102 operator and a Catonsville high school lassie go pitter- pat. Phi Delts claim that Roma and Roth are synony- mous, one being lost without the other. Although the " Blue Bullet " was in hock, Ed Lentz continued to beat a path to the AOPi house to see his Ginny. Jack Frost acquired the nickname " Geranium, " and, if the brothers should lose him to the Merchant Marine, memories of Jack will always be of that sweet flower also. Robert " Buck " Bates, with his two guns at his side, shot his way into a redhead ' s heart. Besides women, the Phi Delt ' s were gifted with Emory Harman, special present of the U. S. Army. He came back in time to see Phi Delta Theta go up on campus, and as he says, " Watch them go. " ' Members: Richard Bozman, Jack Frost, William Gruber, Ed- win Lentz, Charles Ryan.

At that time there were only four active members. During the year Henry Howden swung the gavel and Charles DePhillips assistetl as vice president. Under their leadership the Phi Kaps entered the annual rush- ing competition and pletlged twelve men. By March the fraternit)- hoastetl fifteen actives and seven pledges and began to search for a place to house them. As Peter Bozick succeeded Henry Howden as presi- dent when the new year rolled in, social functions were picked up with renewed vigor. The Phi Kap ' s held a Straw Dance that was so successful that the Interfraternity Council adopted the idea, and another dance similar to it was held in the Phi Kappa rooms. Later in the year the traditional Phi Kappa Sigma Skull Dance was presentuei, at which time " Rosco " was trotted out. The event turned out to be quite the pinning aflfair, for brothers Joe Papania and William Kirby lost their pins.

Henry Howden served as secretary, vice president, and president of the Interfraternity Council, while holding down a position on the Diamondback staff was Vic Mullin. Pete Bozick and Jim Alderton represented Phi Kappa Sigma on the Interfraternity Council. Not to be left out on the sports angle. Phi Kap sent brother Charlie DePhillips out to lead them in intramural football. Charlie not only led them but also starred on the team. Even the pledges fought for the honor of their fraternity, for Ken Malone boxed in the one hundred seventy-five-pound bracket.

When winter closed down in earnest, the Sigs lit the smoking lamp at Albrecht ' s, where Radical Mears or- ganized the leftiest of all free men ' s clubs, a band to halt the loss of fraternity jewelry. Bill Harrison and Fred SafTord formed the backbone of the outfit, and even " Black Market " Bastian lent his name. .Nlever- 011 ' lct ii l ii ' |i iIh- bull scssii ' M.

Socialites Ralph Sipes and Leigh Vanneman were reformed and, of all things, started to study. Marie Foulkes, Sigma Chi sweet- heart of 1944, got choosy and went individual; she now wears Page Chesser ' s pin. The year was a robust one for all, particularly the pledges. " Sadist Sam " Fortunato, feeling that the usual " riding " of the new pledges by the old mem- bers was not enough, was a bit hard on the pledglings; however, they bore it well and were initiated. The chapter romped through seven straight wins at intramural basketball to win the championship, with John Younger, now United States Army Air Force, Jim Skeen, and Ralph Simmons hazing the ball around the court. Mallonee might have been seen passing out blackjacks and knuckle dusters before the game. Les Smith read a book on commando tactics and used what he had learned on the gridiron. For playing fair and square football and living through it, and for boosting what was left of the old school spirit, he was awarded a letter. Brother Fred Safford fought his way to the intramural boxing championship. Somewhere someone said that all play and no v. ' ork makes Jack a dull boy, but the Sigma Chi ' s had a litde trouble believing it. Nevertheless, some of the boys beat their way up the hill to meetings. Bob Scott and Les Smith were elected vice chairmen of the Stu- dent Board, and Page Chesser straightened out fra- ternity problems as president of the Interfraternity Council. Bob Steen, Footlight Club member from way back, spent Wednesday evenings at the Footlight meetings when he could tear himself away from Caro- lyn, and Ralph Sipes reported for the Diamondback. " Mai " Mallonee drew cartoons for the Diamondback and for the Jenapiti. Sigma Chi, struck as all fraternities were by the manpower shortage, showed that the standards of fraternalism for which they stand cannot be lost, even in time of war. 2tembers: David Bastian, Roger Bergstrom, Robert Bradford, Page Chesser, Stanley Crostiiwait, Samuel Fortunato, William Harrison, T.

Ocean City, the SAE ' s, proudly displaying healthy tans, upencd the summer quarter. Prexy Otts McDearmon led the hoys toward success in the social, athletic, and scholastic aspects of campus life. Going into its second year on the Maryland campus, SAE is now firmly established, for the fraternity name, so well known nationally, quickly gained recognition on campus. The boys opened the fall quarter with a first anniversary banquet, f-ollowing closely were an orchestra dance with an auttminal theme and a Sadie Hawkins Dance. The SAH touch football team remained imscored upon until the championship game. The fast and light team was noted for its teamwork. Pledge Bob Harvey was picked by Coach Stan Baker as the out- J( m )c ' »is ci ' i ' iv liiiu ' you try lo s ui v. standing touch football player in the league for his excellent passing. Appointed Cadet Colonel and chairman of the dance committee of the Student Board was Pat Coyle, while Will Schmidt took over the sports page of the })iiuno)hihcn. ' k, ably assisted by brothers Herb Hodge, Byrd Lucas, Dick Grubb, and Bill Gould. Pledge Bill Ehrmantraut headed the daydodgers, and Pledge Walt Bauman starred on the Varsity football eleven. The Sig Alph ' s elected as president for the fall quarter Kenny Maskell, who gave his all toward build- ing the fraternity; however, at the end of the quarter Kenny graduated, and Line Black was elected to the helm for the winter quarter. Again the Sig Alph ' s produced an intramural basketball team that stayed in the win column elespite the lack of experienced reserves. The highlight of the chapter ' s social life was its Winter Lormal, held in the k)imge of the armory and temperctl b - the sweet music of Jack Motion ' s orches- tra. On March ninth, hunilreds of SAE ' s in the Wash- ington area gathered at the Statler Hotel to toast loimder ' s Day. With another highly successful year under its belt, the N ' oung fraternity is proud of its achievements and of its ability to grow ami pidsper under tr ing war- time conditions. 108 f -e ■ illl llilllillilHBM| ' Tirst Koii ' : Armstrong, Black, Borgcs, Brown, Coyle, Garvcy, Grubb.

Having more than thirty members and being one of the few fraternities on cam- pus able to retain its house, the fraternit y won the intramural championship in baseball and football. Brother Tommy " Touchdown " Graham helped by re- ceiving the Touchdown Club ' s Intranuual Trophy. Helping to raise the Theta Chi status on campus was the acquiring of offices on campus by the mem- bers. Randy Scholl served as president of the Stu- dent Board, Bill Eckhardt presided as chairman of the Dance Committee of the Student Board, and Dick Spencer became the treasurer of the Interfraternity Council. Bill Kahler, Jim " Jellybean " Ryan, and Gil Bresnick, Men ' s Chorus and Clef and Key members, took part in the Varsity Show, Out ' Touch oj (icuins. while " Bing " Kahler entertained his bnithers tKun be- hind the footlights in T iuilcr ni a A ' mmciv Makinj; sure that music and acting wouldn ' t be the death of the fraternity.

Even she could not control " Guerilla Men " Scholl and Holljes on their shower sprees. Jimmy Shields continued his expeditions to Bowie in search of eggs, antl " Uncle Harwood " Jackson gave out sound advice that no one, including Jackson himself, ever followed.

Headed first by Jack Mac- Veigh and later by Jerry Cleaver, the A.T.O. ' s con- tinued their activities, although hard hit by the worldly chaos. in spite of the fact that the A.T.O. ' s did not occupy their house during 1945 because of war conditions, they were still able to maintain their social status with week-end parties, interfrateinity sports, and a galaxy of other campus activities.

As usual, rushing was pursued by the Tau ' s and a fine pledge class was instituted and initiated during the 1944-1945 season. An old fashioned barbecue held at Joe Grisby ' s home, Grisby Station, Maryland, and a party held at the home of Dr. Charles White, highlighted the rush season. Entertained admirably by Dr. White, the Tau ' s and their rushees were par- ticularly impressed by the demonstrations of an infra- red ray and its curious effect on teeth, fingernails, and especially printed maps. Jerry Cleaver, president of the fraternity, competed in the student body elections and won the post of second vice chairman of the Student Board with the help of A.T.O. B.T.O. MacVeigh and his yeoman service as special campaign manager. Brother Bill Scull steered Omicron D elta Kappa, men ' s honorary, through a successful year. Rayner Hesse was a member of the news staff of the Diai}]ondbiK ' k, and with the success of his timely features became well known among the school newspaper readers; in fact, he became so well known that he successfully alien- ated nearly all the campus belles with his Diamond- hack feature on the relative merits of women and dogs. Jerry Cleaver, Rayner Hesse, and Jack MacVeigh represented Alpha Tau Omega on the Interfraternity Council; Jack was selected treasurer of the Council. During the year brother Phil Bettendorf and James Stapp entered the armed services. Bettendorf is now serving in the Navy, and Stapp, his ex-cohort in cam- pus fun, is doing his part in the Army. Dr. Charles E. White, professor of chemistry, mem- ber of the Publications Board and the Student Life Committee, ably served as advisor to the fraternity. The Tau ' s are making pla ns for the post-war era, when once more they will occupy their house on Col- lege Avenue and the fraternity will reassume its place among the leading campus organizations.

Ever active on the ath- letic fiekl, many of the brothers took over a large part of the coliseum, since this marked their second year of being without a fraternity house. Nevertheless, Sigma Nu continued to rank high both scholastically and in student activities. Continuing a fraternity trailition, brother Daly was elected captain of the tootball team, replacing Hd " Fearless " Hurson, 194. captain, now serving in the navy. Also there helping to score those points for ' Maryland ' s Big Red Team " and backing Captain Daly were ten more Sigma Nu actives and pledges. When basketball practice got under way, Sigma Nu had the only two veterans, jack Flynn and Warren Hoflccker. Flynn was elected captain and was high scorer in the Southern Conference. Pledges Charlie Campbell and Paul jaeck were both regulars on the basketball tiam. Bill Coakley was named co-captain of the boxing team, on which pletlge Bob Troll served, ant!

Sigma Nu was the winner ot both the interfraternity leagues, softball and track. In the intramural boxing tournament, Frank Morrisettc won the one hundred forty-Bve pound division. Student activities also attracted the Sigma Nu ' s. Mike Zetts acted as president of the Monogram Club, while Percy Wolfe served as secretary-treasurer.

She furnished the men ll ' c tpcrkcd hard (o keep up ihe chapter jor ' ost ' crer there. with a substitute fraternity house; in the basement of her home the Sigma Nu ' s held their meetings and initiations. The room is decorated with banners, plaques, pictures, and trophies of the fraternity. Besides Sigma Nu Commander Jack Flynn, there was Lieutenant Commander Michael Zetts, while Tom Chisari served the brothers as secretary, and Ashby Musselman balanced the budget. Under the leadership of social chairman Mike Zetts, the social life of Sigma Nu was a highlight of the past year, sometimes nearly assuming the gayety of pre- war. Very successful were a semi-formal joint dance with Theta Chi and a Valentine dance with Pi Beta Phi sorority. The near famous Sadie Hawkins dance, however, was again the most heartily enjoyed social function of the year. Members: A. M.

Although the draft practically annihilated KA membership, there re- mained two actives and one pledge, bound and deter- mined to keep the old KA colors flying. Therefore, with a minimum of chance and a maximum of ambi- tion, what was left of Kappa Alpha rushed and pledged eighteen men. Having been partially dor- mant for a time, the brotherhood crept out of its cocoon ami began to enter into the life of the Uni- versity as in the old days. In true KA style, Lou Phipps, Gerald Heatley, Hal Keller, Steve Chalmers, and Rob Yordy captured the limelight on the Old Liner basketball team, and Bill Greer served well on the boxing team. Not to be outdone, brother Hunky Doory went out for football and was claimed by the football squad as the star end of the team.

" Their brothers weren ' t the only things that attracted members in the Baltimore school to the College Park campus. Brother George Rasch literally haunted the Alpha Xi Delta house, and Dave Bell did his share of traveling from Baltimore to C. P. to see his Alpha Xi girl. It was no surprise to the Delta Sig ' s to find their boy Dave married during the summer. Willie Eppes, Annapolis ' pride and joy, burned the roads to College Park to see his brothers. After the loss of brother Jim Spamer to the army, Phil Brewer took over the books; with Eckhardt ' s graduation Charles Proffen became president and worked hard to keep Delta Sig alive on campus.

' s, famous in clays gone by for their dances and sherbet-ginijerale pLinch, had a dif- HcLilt time keeping interested in the gayer things of life, with a war on one hand and an increasing de- mand for food production on the other. The brother- hood, nevertheless, composed of only thirteen men during 1945, continued studies in soil and crop prin- ciples and kept Alpha Gamma Rho alive on campus. The fraternity was affected in two ways by the war. Not only were many of the brothers taken into the arious branches of the service, but also others were required, on the home front, to return to their home farms to produce the crops necessary to meet the increased demands for food. Numerous alumni produced great quantities of food; in fact, one brother expected to produce over fifty thousand chickens dur- ing the year, and others produced vegetables, fruits, and meat. An A.G.R., confined to a hospital in Italy, was surprised at finding a can of food packed by his uncle. 7iTSt Roil ' : Caruthcrs, Gritian, Hines, Husfcit, Secotui Uow: McCaha, Ricck, Spencc, Thompson. 118 The Alpha Gamma Rho members in the service would make a small army. They are sailing the seas, fly- ing planes, driving tanks, taking territory, and holding beach-heads in all the war zones. Throughout 1945 letters were received from one hundred and forty- seven brothers in the service, totaling approximately forty-five per cent of the members taken into the Maryland chapter. The A.G.R. fraternity house was leased to Pi Beta Phi sorority. Consequently, the brothers were dis- tributed over the various campus houses. Regular meetings and social functions, however, kept alive the spirit on which the future of the chapter will be built. y teniberi: Bruce Car ' itiners, Frani lin Hausfeit, William Hines, Meivin McGaha, John Rieck, Robert Spence, Harold Thompson.

The sports stories of Eddie Schrier were a feature of the Dicimondback, while Elliott Lapin tried out for the Footlight Club, was accepted, and participated in a Maryland play with only one quarter of Footlight membership behind him. Gil Levine captained the band for a year, and several of his brothers won com- missions and high warrants in the R.O.T.C. Austin Oppenheim had the highest average in the College of Business and Public Administration, while Jay Bisgyer had unusually high grades. The fraternity as a whole maintained over a 2.5 average. The sad news that friend and brother Bill Birn- baum had been killed in Germany was received near the close of the year. The Sigma Alpha Mu ' s, here and all over the world, hope that the ideals for which he died will become actualities,- and, as long as there is a member of Sigma Alpha Mu, he will fight for those ideals.

Lookinil lit what happened way back when. 123 T au P 1 siion ph a s;r: gsy TALI Beta of Tau Epsilon Phi, like many other college fraternities, was forced to become in- active in the sprint; of I94.T, after eighteen very suc- cessful years on the University of Maryland campus. A year after it had become inactive, four very determined members, Lenny Eisenberg, Kopel Jef- frey, Benny Herman, and Stanley Himmelstein, al- though working under great hardships, rcorganizeil Tau Beta chapter. So inspired were these four men that the difficulties whicli confronted them did not seem to be a hindrance, biit a stimulant, to the group. In June of 1944, the first pledge class of the re- organized chapter, which included Bernard Groh, Melvin Cohen, Sidney Caller, flarry Kahn, Morris Silverman, Morris Starr, Morton Schwartzman, Don- ald Levy, and Samuel Goldhagen, was installed. Schwartzman, L evy, and (joldhageii leh almost imme- diately for the armei.1 services. Although the chapter was still minus a fraternity house at the end of the summer of 1944, TLP ' s active membership rose to twenty-two. Shortly alter the fall quarter began, they regained possession of their chap- ter house. The house at 4(i()7 K ' nox Road was opened on November 14, after two hectic weeks of cleaning. TAU BETA CHAPTER Founded at COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY in 1910 Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND ill 1925 painting, and repairing. A week later a house-warm- ing, which pr() ed to be the most successful affair of 1944, was given. TEP ' s present membership includes four veterans of this war, I loward Schafer, Morris Silverman, Sidney Caller, and Robert Eichberg. Sidney Caller, one of the TEP alums, is an instructor in the zoology depart- ment at the University. Mel Cohen, Chancellor of Tau Epsilon Phi, served on the musical staff of the Clef and Key for the Var- sity Show and was student president of A.I.Ch.E. Harry Kahn, vice president of the latter organization This is whiil we ' ll lio lo ' cm! 124 and treasurer of Tau Epsilon Phi, was honored in his junior year for having the highest average among chemical engineers. Stuart Schuster held the position of captain in the R.O.T.C, while Frank Grott pre- sided over A.S.M.E. TEP was well represented in sports. The team ranked second in the intramural football league and second in the intramural basketball league. Main- stays of the basketball team were Bob Lewis, Eddie Statter, and Moe Starr. TEP also participated in box- ing and baseball. During the last quarter, several new members have entered the armed forces, among them Alex Stouck, Kenneth Cowan, and Marvin Weisberg. Charlie Bresler left the campus to prep for the U. S. Military Academy. To make up for the loss, several alums, directly from overseas duty, visited the campus. Along with their other activities, the brothers helped publish the Jaii Beta Jorcb, edited by Bob Eichberg, held successful house dances, and kept the house in a veritable turmoil with their fun making.

Sorority mem- bers signed up donors and contributed toward the blood drive. The Council worked with the Student Board for the sale of war bonds among the students. Red Cross canteen work at Camp Springs, Maryland, was done by the sorority girls, and all sororities con- tributed to President Roosevelt ' s " March of Dimes " for infantile paralysis. The Council urged all organ- izations to add what they could to the Community War Fund drive. Cooperating with X omen ' s League, the Pnn-Hellenic Council aided in the presentation of the annual Ma - Day. Realizing the need for light- ing on campus and for police protection, sorority women advocated the incorporation of College Park. In March the Pan-Hellenic Council conducted a workshop at which delegates from the National Pan- Hellenic Council, national representatives from each sorority, alumnae advisors for each sorority, represent- atives from nearby campuses, and the local Council participated in a discussion of pan-hellenic problems. .

With Nata- lie Eskwith as Rushing Captain, the chapter pledged eighteen girls during the year. War activities took up a great deal of everyone ' s time this year. Myra Levcnson and Naomi Ziggles spiuretl tile girls on to greater patriotic efforts. Their efforts were not fruitless, for 1 lannah Needle became well known for her Red Cross knitting, and both Hannah antl Vivian Smelkinson served breakfast at the Servicemen ' s Canteen in Baltimore on Sunday mornings. The rest of the girls divided their time be- tween hospital wards in Baltimore and in Washington, helping to serve at mealtimes when the shortage was most severely felt. The pledge group did an excel- lent job of providing amusing scrap books for wound- ed servicemen. As a reward, they were given a Pledge Queen Dance, at which [erne Kandel was chosen Queen of the Alpha Epsilon Phi pledge group. The cultural angle was ably taken care of by Vivian Rose and Tcma Gokiiner in the Footlight Club and by Helene Aaronson, Natalie Eskwith, Sylvia Cohen, and Judy Goldstein in the Dance Club. Ruth Shur devoted her time to the handling of international rela- tions in the French Club, while Ruth Wolfson, Rhona Benesch, Norma Hofstadter, and Vivian Smelkinson attcmptetl to soke social problems at the Sociology Ckib meetings. Rhona concerned herself also with the athletic potentialities of the sorority by managing the basketball team. Tenia Rubenstein worked on the advertising staff of the iiiiio ii l ' iici ' and represented AEPhi at the Victory Council gatherings.

Vivian Davis, the Phi Sig Philanthropy Chairman, kept the girls on their toes sponsoring a stocking drive and winning the Fifth War Loan Drive. Lennie Shapiro and Rickye Brendler were busy throughout the year at the Stage Door Canteen in Washington, while Irene Caplan and Marilyn Rubin helped enter- tain the boys at Walter Reed Hospital. With the addition of some Phi Sig blood the Red Cross Blood Hank became a bit wealthier and the girls became a little happier. Lila Berkman, Phi Sig ' s own Thespian, held her own in Footlight productions and also acted as social chairman of the club. Another talented sister, Char- lotte Schneider, won a modeling contest in Wash- ington. Arlene Raskin was tapped for Sigma Alpha Omicron, bacteriology fraternity, whi le Harriet Kra- kow was installed in Alpha Lambda Delta, women ' s freshman honor society. Despite their numerous activities " up the hill " in Women ' s League, Pnn-Hel, W.R.A., and Victory Council, the sisters had time for mischief. Bett Barban, president, with all her dignity, was guilty oi charging up and down the stairs in the fashion of the Teddy Roosevelt of Jrsetiic rtitW Old Ldce. Botsie Weinstein couldn ' t seem to get out of the habit of pie-bed making, much to the chagrin of " William " Wolpert, whose plots for revenge evolved around wet washcloths and cornflakes. The Phi Sig telephone seemed to ring constantly, for calls from camps all over the country, and even cables fiom Russia came through to the girls. With pinnings, engagements, and weddings, the sis- ters were busy all winter munching chocolates from the well-known five-pound boxes. Annette Bernstein Often and Ruth Singer Taubman ranked with the gal- lant souls who returned to school with their new degree of Mrs. Jhh IS lI ' C IIMV ll l( ' lI .

It was discovered at the time that the local chapter house is the oldest house in College Park, the estate having formerly enveloped all of what is now College Park. Although house- parties are not as common as they used to be, the sis- ters held one in honor of their national officers, and representatives from four eastern chapters spent the weekend of February ninth as guests of the local chapter. Representatives from Hunter College, Adel- phi College, George Washington University, and Temple University sampled real Maryland hospitality. The traditional housemother ' s affair, a dessert this year, was held in March. Jhc porch icrts ii ' oiuftr nl in Ibe spriiut JMcMiht ' fs.

Harlan Griswold, the Maryland ROTC worked hard for the past year keep- ing up its honor rntint and preparini? its members for active service in the armed forces. With the climinn- ROTC tion of the Advanced Army Program, the emphasis in military instruction was on preparing men for the Basic Training they will get upon induction. Capt. George Dunlap and First Lt. Harold Your- mnn were the ROTC instructors. They were assisted by M Sgt. Charles Dodson and Tech. Sgt. Fay Mor- ris. M Sgt. Howard Seebo held down the Sergeant Major ' s job. With the addition of an ASTCR) company, the battalion increased in size during 1944 to four com- panies. With the start of 1945, however, only enough men were available to form two companies, the AST JirsI Roll ' : Capt. George Dunlap, Miss Ann Little, Col. H. C. Griswold, Capt. Bohler, Li.

If it was too unpleasant to drill out-of-doors, the battalion formed inside and " carried out the pre- scribed drill for the day. " William Scull was the Cadet Colonel during the spring and summer quarters, with Leonard Eisenberg and Barney Eyler the Cadet Majors. Commanding the companies under Scull were Randolph Coyle, James Stapp, Calvin Dutton, and William Rosen. Randolph Coyle followed Scull as Cadet Colonel during the fall 153 and winter quartL-rs.

Kind farmers along the way fed pieces of delicious watermelon to the men with disastrous results in the form of " gig " slips. Continuing under the personal supervision of Col.

SiNCi; the hcijinnint; ot the wnr the physical fitness of men of the country has been stressed by the government, the services, and the universities. The health of the man in service, the teamwork he has been trained in, and the manner in which he is able Program to coordinate his innate and acquired abilities are of prime importance to the success of each of the armed services. The students at the University of Maryland re- ceived the same training that the A.S.T. students had received in order that they might be physically fit upon entering the service. Under the direction of Dr. Clarence W. Spears, each phase of the physical edu- cation program was taken care of. Supplementing the compulsory program were the intramural sports of football, basketball, and boxing during the winter. With spring and warm weather, gym work, corrective exercises, tennis, baseball, track, and football became the main sports of Maryland students. yovnk {kicdis ,1(ovfi III ' iidiiiiiiiiii Rcxinil lillills.

FOOTBALL DR. Clarence W. Spears began his second year as head coach at the University of Maryland with a squad composed of seventeen-year-olds, 4F ' s, and a few discharged service men. Although eleven lettermen were returning and big things were expected of the Old Liners, they never seemed to click because of a continually changing lineup due to injuries. History was made as the Maryland University Old Liners met the Hampden-Sydney Tigers in Byrd Sta- dium in the first game played under lights. However, Maryland had a case of opening game jitters and fum- STATISTICS OF GAMES— Hampden-Sydney 12 Wake Forest 39 West Virginia 6 Michigan State 8 Florida 14 Virginia 18 Michigan State 33 Penn State 34 V.M.I 6 Maryland Maryland Maryland 6 Maryland Maryland 6 Maryland 7 Maryland Maryland 19 Maryland 8 159 Maryhiiul Jiilbts to hoU the Jlorida line. bled the game away to the Tigers 12-0. The team traveled next to North Carolina to meet the Wake Forest Deacons. The Deacons had entirely too many big guns and rolled over the Liners to the tune of 39-0.

(( M " Club AiniouGii the functions of the M Club have . been lessened because of the fewer wearers of the M and the decrease in men students, some ac- tivity has been engaged in by the members. The ckib was estabhshed years ago to honor men who hatl done outstanding work in athletics. The organization fos- ters better intercollegiate athletics and helps athletes in any way possible. A scholarship is offered to those men who show special abilit - in sports, the tuition be- ing paid by the funds of the club. in the fall the club met to plan tor the homecoming dance, the proceeds of which were used to pay for the scholarships oflfcrcd. Serving as president was Mr. E. E. Powell, former lacrosse star who initiated the playing of lacrosse at the University. Dr. Ernest N. Cory retained his position of secretary-treasurer of the organization. Only letter men may become members of the M Club. Principal function of the athletic club was the spon- soring of intramural athletics. The members make the rules, form the league, and regulate the games. This year, as in past years, the club served mainly as a medium for uniting men students who have similar interests and a desire to see Maryland outstanding in athletics.

BASKETBALL THE twenty-second year of coaching for Mr. Bur- ton Shipley was completed in 1945 at the Uni- versity of Maryland, an indication of his popularity on the campus. As a student, previous to World War I, he was a member of the basketball, baseball, and football squads. Mr. Shipley keeps in close touch with his boys and watches their every move on the floor, looking for ways to improve their playing.

He was assisted by Percy Wolfe, a student at the University, who has had experience in the field of boxing and who offered his services to the team for the season.

Ken Malone, from Baltimore, showed the ability he is capable of exhibiting toward the end of the year. One of his greatest assets was the fine phys- ical condition in which he kept himself. Alex Boben- ko, captain of the team and one of its best fighters, was forced to give up boxing because of the great amount of study connected with his courses in den- tistry. A good worker was Bill Greer, one-hundred- and forty-five-pound class. After Harold Donofrio went out of action. Bill Filbert held down the one- hundred-thirty-five-poimd class. Not a newcomer to the team, Filbert saw a good deal of action. Jose Fossas, Puerto Rico ' s contribution to the Maryland team, showed plenty of stamina and punch but met too much opposition.
