Cole, Jr., student, athlete, lawyer, and untiring friend of the students of the University of Maryland and of the people of this state, who was this year elected as Chairman of the Board of Regents. In 1910, " Bill " Cole was graduated from the University of Maryland and received his degree in engineering. As a student, his activities included baseball, in which he won his letter in 1909; manager of the nine in 1910; secretary of the athletic council; lieutenant in the military unit; secretary-treasurer of the Rossborough Club; business man- ager of both the May and June ball organizations; member of Conference Committee; humorous editor of The Re- veille, as the yearbook was then called; and, senior orator. After he had received his engineering degree, the young William Cole took a degree in the Law School in Baltimore. Having a fine education and a splendid legacy of public service left by his father, William P. Cole, Sr., he began to practice law in his home town. Tow- D E D son. A few years later, he was elected by a large majority as a member of Congress from the Second District. He served as a member of Congress over a long period until he resigned two years ago to become Judge of the United States Customs Court, with headquarters at New York City, in which capacity he still serves the nation. During the first World War, Judge Cole served as a captain and fought through Belgium and France. His son, Billy, who was graduated from the Uni- versity of Maryland just as World War II broke out, was killed in action as the United States Army was entering Ger- many. Judge Cole is serving his second term of nine years as a member of the Board of Regents of the University. With the help of a man who attended the Uni- versity and has known it well, we are assured a school that we may be proud of, a school that has grown from the small agricultural college of 1850 to the great university it is today and will be in the future. o ADMIIVISTRATION BUILDING ..- ' .. ' ' a.T, ' ' Ih. JioAAi GUjjton ] if ld, PRESIDENT The many contributions that Dr. Harry Clifton Byrd has made to the development of the University of Maryland in his ten years of service as President would be difficult to enumerate. Under his capable and in- spiring leadership, the University withstood the many problems which arose during the past war and is looking forward to an even greater future in a peaceful world. f oa id ojj- (lecfeHii Judge W. P. Cole, Jr. The members of the Board of Regents, the governing body of the University of Maryland, were glad to welcome two new men into their midst, Senator Millard E. Tydings and Charles P. McCormick of Baltimore. These men are appointed by the governor of the state for a term of nine years each. Other members this year were William P. Cole, chairman; Glen L. Martin, Stanford Z. Rothschild, Mrs. John L. Whitehurst, Philip C. Turner, E. Paul Knotts, Thomas R. Brooks, and Harry H. Nuttle.

Acting as coordinator of all activities for women students on campus, she has played a significant part in making col- lege experiences most enjoyable and exceedingly profitable. eoH Of Men After three years of absence from the Uni- versity while serving in the United States Army, Geary Eppley has returned to campus as Dean of Men. This tall " Swede " is known for his interest in Maryland athletics and publications. The University is glad to welcome home. Geary C. Eppley The Student Life Committee, composed of faculty members, is an all-important factor of extra-curricular life on campus. This group is continually growing in importance as it strives to maintain a friendly relationship between the student body and the administration. STUDENT LIFE COMMITTEE first row: Cramer, Harmon, White, Preinkert. Stcond row: Dillard, Reid, Griswald, Eppley, Lejins, Phillips. Dean CO. Appleman The Graduate School Council, composed of the faculty who serve as instructors in the University, is primarily concerned with estab- lishing requirements for degrees and investi- gating and approving candidates. While con- tinuing to train students in the fields of re- search, teaching, and commerce, the Council also offers instruction to college graduates, holders of Master ' s Degrees, and advanced undergraduate students at College Park and Baltimore. Q vcuxMcde okml QouHoii Ever since its establishment in 1919, Dr. Charles O. Appleman has served as Dean of the Graduate School Council. Doctor Appleman completed his undergraduate studies at Dick- inson College, where he specialized in botany and plant physiology. He received his degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Bacteriology at the University of Chicago. Opportunities for graduate work have been greatly increased through the cooperation of the Federal Research Center at Beltsville and the laboratories of the Bureau of Mines and Fisheries on the campus. Industrial firms and the federal government have established fellowships for graduate study. The degrees offered are Master of Arts, Master of Science, Master of Education, Master of Business Administration, and Doctor of Philosophy. First row: Pyle, Cotterman, Appleman, Mount, Meade.

Cotterman The College of Agriculture offers both gen- eral and specialized training to students who wish to prepare for professional work in the broad iield of agriculture. Its strength lies in the close coordination of the instructional, re- search, extension, and regulatory functions within the individual departments, between the several departments, and in the University as a whole. Responsible for the beginnings of the College Park branch of the University is the College of Agriculture. Throughout the years, the College has continued to fit its young men and women for positions in all parts of the world. With the advent of peace, its younger staff members are now returning to take over their classes again. 12 Acting Dean J. Freeman Pyle The College of Arts and Sciences provides a broad education in liberal arts and sciences. In the junior and senior years, the student specializes in courses leading toward profes- sional, vocational, or cultural goals. Included QoUeCfe Of in the College are the departments of biological sciences, economics, history, languages and literature, physical sciences, political science, psychology, and sociology. This year saw the return of several instruc- tors from the armed forces. Under the veter- ans ' program, the enrollment in the College of Arts and Sciences was greater than at any time in the history of the University. Continuing to maintain high standards, the College is prepar- ing these men to succeed in their chosen fields. 13 7% ffi QoUecfe Of Excellent opportunities are offered to the students of the College of Business and Public Administration to study the economic and commercial problems of two nearby metro- politan centers. Instruction is given in Business Administration, Secretarial Training, Public Administration, and in the departments of Foreign Trade and Human and Natural Re- sources. Upon graduation from the College, students are qualified for service in business firms and governmental agencies and for teaching com- mercial subjects and economics in high schools and colleges. Training for effective manage- ment is the primary objective of the College. With the postwar development of business and industry, the demand for young men and women educated in these fields is rapidly in- creasing. Dean J. Freeman Pyle Secretaries in the embryo stage. 14 GoUeae 4 Foremost among the aims of the College of Education is the preparation of young people for teaching in public schools. Upon these teachers rests the responsibility of showing the youth of the Nation a better way of life. The College offers courses for those who wish to teach in the secondary, preparatory, and vocational schools. Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degrees are conferred in Academic, Commercial, Business, Home Eco- AcTiNG Dean Henry H. Brechbill nomics, and Elementary Education. In the past year the departments of Men ' s and Women ' s Physical Education have again be- come a part of the College of Education. Recent too are the added curricula of Dental and Nursery School Education. Although at present the College of Educa- tion is without a dean. Acting Dean Brechbill has done much to broaden the college program in education. In the near future a new dean will be appointed. Keeping up with the news. 15 Dean S. S. Steinberg Dating back to 1859 history of engineer- ing at the University of Maryland has been one of continual progress. The outstanding development of the past year was the generous gift of $i, 500,000 from Glenn L. Martin, pi- oneer aviator and Baltimore plane manufac- turer, for new engineering buildings and equipment; the State Legislature appropriated an additional $750,000. An endowment of $ioo,ooo has been set aside for the Glenn L. Martin Aeronautical Research Foundation. The entire project is expected to result in the largest single advancement in the history of the University. During the past year many of our former engineering students who were in service have returned, and with them have come many veterans who are here for the first time. During the reconversion period ahead, the College of Engineering will continue to render maximum service to the State and to the Nation. 16 Dean Marie Mount The various curricula in the College of Home Economics educate young women for the man- agement of a home and family and equip them to earn a livelihood. With the close of the war and the termination of war services, many home economists are turning to the fields of teaching, extension, and dietetics. The College of Home Economics is organized into the Departments of Foods and Nutrition; Textiles, Clothing, and Art; and Home and Taking it seriously. Institution Management. A home management house is maintained to give the students prac- tical experience. Students having high scholastic averages may be elected to Omicron Nu, the National Home Economics Honor Society. The Home Economics Club is affiliated with the Ameri- can Home Economics Association. 17 Cmol 0 J l{4A4yLHCf. The urgent need for trained nurses during the past war proved an inspiration to the young women of America. They offered them- selves then, as well as now, for the work which was so helpful in making this world a better place in which to live. One of the most significant symbols of the nursing profession is the white graduate cap which differs from school to school. The cap awarded to the University Hospital nurses is patterned after the one worn by Florence Nightingale; this cap is also worn by the graduates of Miss Nightingale ' s own nursing school, St. Thomas Hospital, London, England. For the first time in the history of the Uni- versity Hospital, the student nurses have pub- lished a bi-monthly newspaper. The Medical Droffer. This paper has won the praise of the Checking the lay of the land. House Staff, the visiting doctors, and the medical students, as well as that of the nurses themselves. Nurses have earned themselves the admira- tion and gratitude of all Americans by their deeds of valor, humanitarianism, and mercy. Superintendent Ivy B. Clifford. 18 S S E S FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS President Jack Clark Vice-President Fred DeMarr Secretary Nell Ligon Treasurer Barbara Schneider T. HE first peacetime class to enter the Uni- versity of Maryland in three years, the Class of 1949 did what it could to restore the pre-war atmosphere on campus; and, by the end of Feb- ruary, the only visible evidence of the recently concluded war was the mixture of GI uniforms and navy raincoats with the traditionally col- legiate plaid shirts. While the majority of freshmen concentrated largely on making the necessary scholastic average, there was always time for play, and morale was high. The " ' 49ers " made their place on campus at Home- coming in November when they pulled the sophomores into Paint Branch during the annual tug-of-war. As a result, they threw away their rat caps and w ere absorbed into the student body as freshmen instead of " rats " and " rabbits. " Because of the influx of new members during the fall, the Class of 1949 delayed its organizing until early in December, when Jack Clark de- 20 feated Chuck Callegary for the class presi- dency. Other officers elected at that time were Fred DeMarr, vice-president; Nell Ligon, secre- tary; Barbara Schneider, treasurer; Mary Pat Smith, historian; and, Bob Kambies, sergeant- at-arms. Being the largest class on campus, the f resh- men were chiefly veterans who, by mid- semester, had recaptured their positions in most of the men ' s dorms which had been occupied by coeds during the war. To help these new freshmen, most of whom had entered the University of Maryland at the beginning of the second semester, to get acquainted, the class sponsored a series of freshman mixers in place of the usual single mixer. These dances were given in the new student lounge with the aid of the freshman girls in Margaret Brent, Anne Arundel, Dorm C, and Calvert Hall. Biggest item on the activity schedule of the " forty-niners " was the traditional freshman prom. Here again the frosh showed ingenuity in the choice of a theme, featuring the music of Clark Sheetenhelm and his orchestra. The dance committee, under the direction of Jack Clark, class prexy, and Dick Betson, social chairman, termed their dance the " Gold Rush of ' 49. " Goldie Schall and her decoration committee did a first-rate job of transforming the Gym Armory into an appropriate setting. Murals, depicting the glorious future of the " ' 49ers " at Maryland, were strategically placed around the gym. To further carry out the theme, picks and shovels were used as decorations. At midnight, a colorful spectacle occurred as the band played " Pennies from Heaven " and a net of black and gold parted, releasing multi-colored balloons to descend upon the dancers. All in all, the " ' 49ers " gave Maryland a novel and enjoyable evening. Thus began the story of the Class of 1949. The nights are grim. ' til the Sophs take a swim. • ■ 21 cuss OF SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS President Bill Eckhardt Vice-President Bill Greer Secretary Sally Morgan Treasurer Carol Haase T. HE sophomore class, organized for the first time since 1943, pooled its talents and energies and really went places this year. President Bill Eckhardt, Vice-President Bill Greer, Secretary Sally Morgan, and Treasurer Carol Haase proved themselves wise choices for class officers, leading the sophs to fun and renown on the Maryland campus. Ably assisting them were Hal Donfrio, Weems Hawkins, Larry Cooper, Patty Piper, and a sophomore class united in spirit and literally " raring to go. " The sophs wrote their first page in Mary- land campus history when they sponsored the 8th Victory Loan Drive and came through with flying colors. A goal of $3000 was easily surpassed, and the final count showed that the drive had netted $17,734. Lennis Janes and Johnsie Wright handled the sale of stamps and bonds to the students and faculty respectively. 22 Dee Speed, chairman of the drive, featured a novel stamp booth at the Veterans ' Dance to further increase the sales. Rita Hickernell did an excellent job of handling poster publicity for the drive, and the sophomore class and the entire student body responded in a manner that proved that, although the war is over and the social calendar is as long as in the pre- war times, Maryland students have not let down their wartime activities. February xi was the biggest day for the sophomores during 1945-1946. Just to prove to all doubting Thomases that Maryland was really back to its pre-war social pace, the sophs gave a " Winter Frolic " that will long remain a pleasant memory to the lucky hundreds who attended. Under the able chairmanship of Weems Hawkins, the class did things right by engaging Stan Brown and his orchestra, a favorite among colleges and universities in this area. Result was an evening of smooth and solid rhythm, climaxed by a crowning, not of a queen, but a King of the Prom. The big moment of the evening came when bashful Gene " Reds " Kinney was led amidst cheers to his throne set in front of a mammoth snow ball. Thus the sophs added a new member to campus royalty, and Maryland, after many Queens, once again has a King. Plaudits for the novel decorations scheme go to the class social committee headed by Ada Anne Howie and Pat Cross. All in all, the sophs gave Maryland one of its peppiest and most in- genious social evenings of the spring season. The Class of ' 48, however, did not get all the breaks. Just ask anyone of them about the tug-of-war against the freshmen at the begin- ning of the year. Look ' s like fun . . . . . Even for King Kinney. ' 23 JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS President Ray Hesse Vice-President Page Chesser Secretary-Treasurer Phyllis Sell Historian Barbara Mumford T HE beginning of the post-war period found the Class of 1947 ready and eager to revive the old Maryland spirit. Like the other classes, they recovered quickly from the confusion and disorganization of the war years and started the ball rolling with class elections early in the fall. After a vigorous campaign that re- flected the revived class spirit and enthusiasm that generally pervaded the campus, the jun- iors elected their officers. Ray Hesse was victorious in the final balloting for president. Other officers elected were Page Chesser, vice- president; Phyllis Sell, secretary-treasurer; and Barbara Mumford, historian. Throughout the year the victorious candidates did a hundred- percent job of reviving traditional and colorful junior class activities. The first big result of their work and one which did much to boost the morale of all Marylanders was the revival of the traditional 24 Junior Promenade. In past years, this Prom had been the annual highlight of Maryland ' s social season, but due to wartime conditions the dance had been left off the social calendar since 1943 (the year of the famed " trolley car " prom). The Class of ' 47 set to work to revive this time-honored custom at Maryland and the result was one of the most colorful dances in Maryland history. Bobby Byrne and his orchestra, who have played at other out- standing Maryland dances in the past, were engaged to furnish the music in the impressive ballroom of Washington ' s Willard Hotel. As of old, the dance was strictly formal; and in the best Maryland tradition, the upperclass- men promenaded to the strains of the Grand March which climaxed the evening. Earlier, there had been a moment of suspense when announcement was made of the selection of Bert Williams, Tri Delt, to reign as Miss Terra- pin of 1946. The Terrapin queen this year was chosen by the victors of the Rose Bowl, the University of Alabama ' s football team, who selected the winning candidate on the basis of beauty, brains, and intelligence. " In between dances, the tux-clad gentlemen and their elegantly attired ladies found refresh- ment at the soft drink stand specially set up for the evening by the Prom committee. By unanimous consent, the Prom was the high- light of the 1945-1946 season. Later in the spring, the juniors inaugurated a new class custom when, in conjunction with Mortar Board, they took over the responsi- bility of sponsoring the annual May Day cere- monies. As in past years, May Day left an impression of charm and beauty witnessed in an appropriately charming and beautiful set- ting. To the Class of ' 47 goes thanks for carrying on a significant Maryland tradition. Big night for all . . . . . . Sponsored by the Junior Class. 25 un SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS President Fred Safford Vice-President Jerry Cleaver Secretary Jeanne Bennett Treasurer Louise Vance of 1946 No more of this . . . or this. October, 1942., despite the impact of Pearl Harbor, saw a record number of rats and rab- bits descend on the Maryland campus. These neophytes, the dignified seniors of 1946, made their debut at the University first in rat hats and pig tails, later in tuxes and tails at the traditional Freshman Prom. With the dousing of their arch rivals, the sophomores, in Paint Branch, the nevvr class established themselves as a group to be reckoned with in Maryland life. Despite the loss of men to the armed forces and the lapse of class organization for the next two years, the present seniors held the class together during the difficult war years, and, with the revival of formal class organization this year, they once again became active. Early in the fall they elected Fred SafFord, president; Jerry Cleaver, vice-president; Jeanne Bennett, secretary; and Louise Vance, treas- urer. These officers were responsible for ar- ranging the traditional Senior Class Com- mencement Week activities. As a result of their planning, the annual senior banquet was held in the Statler Hotel ' s Congressional Room. Under their guidance also, the graduation cere- monies and baccalaureate service were planned and carried out. Climaxing this week of cere- mony and solemnity, the seniors of 1946 gave their final collegiate social function, the time- honored Senior Ball, thereby completing their four year rise from humble wearers of the rat cap to proud bearers of the Mortar Board. But this . . . and this. 11 I eA o n uuiuaie . Marilyn Bartlett Scarsdale, N.Y. Art and Sciences B.A. r B Victory Council; International Relations Club; Red Cross.

The Student Board started the year with a greeting from the Arts and Sciences steps to the new students, pep rallies to cheer our foot- ball team to victory, and student dances, most successful of which was the Homecoming Dance featuring Jerry Wald ' s orchestra. How- ever, the Board cannot take full credit for this dance, as the " M " Club played a major role in making it a success. In addition to these social activities, the Board organized the sen- ior, junior, sophomore, and freshman classes, which had been inactive since 1942.. Under the able direction of Portia Searls, a Student Lounge was established in the Armory, where students could enjoy bridge, ping-pong, and dancing. Both the Rossborough and Men ' s League were reorganized and became active in February. Also in February the Student Board was arbitrarily disbanded to make way for the re-activated Student Government Association with its revised constitution; this organization H6Mclailon had not been in operation for four years. In- vestigation and basic plans were made with regard to the construction of a Student Union building on the Maryland campus, the realiza- tion of which is anticipated in the near future. Thus, in the transition from a wartime schedule of campus activities to one of peace, the S.G.A. has been working to reestablish many of Maryland ' s hallowed traditions and organizations. 50 Wcrnien J.eax:f44£ Women ' s League is that branch of the Stu- dent Government Association of the University which formulates and enforces the rules and regulations pertaining to the conduct of women students on campus. This organization functions on a democratic basis; the officers are chosen by the women students in the spring of the preceding year, and the girls choose their representatives from their own house on or near campus. However, the administering of rules and regulations is not its sole function. It assisted the Student Board in setting up the first out- door nativity scene and organized the Christ- mas program. It sponsored many and sup- ported all of the various campus drives, among which was the very successful clothing drive. Along with the junior class it sponsored the picturesque May Day celebration, which is one of the outstanding yearly activities on campus. Chairman Randy Randall took all the responsibility for this big occasion and did an outstanding job in making it a huge success. The student officers who led these varied activities and helped to make the social life of the girls on campus most desirable were Betty Jackson, president, Peggy Maxwell, vice- president, Marjorie Frederick, secretary, and Louisa White, treasurer. First row: Kelley, White, Jackson, Frederick, Fell. Second row: King, Davis, Mclean, Garrott, Curran, Bulani, Preble. 51 Callcgary, Lehman, Hoff, Forsberg, Kyriakys. The Veterans ' Club of the University of Maryland was founded during the spring se- mester of 1945. The club got under way through the efforts of Harwood Jackson and a small but active nucleus. Fall semester of the new school year brought with it new elections; and, under the presidency of William Hoff, the organization started to progress far beyond expectations. With the able assistance of such vets as " Chuck " Callegary, Harvey Allen, Bob Forsberg, Al Lehman, and many others, the club really became active in school affairs. The members handled a variety of jobs that in- cluded everything from m anagement of the Homecoming Day floats to decorating the tunnel for Christmas. The manger scene, which they set up and surrounded with Christ- mas greens, added a touch of beauty to the Tht chosen eleven. 52 Q. !). oe mccmteyi GcdlecjAaie GUa iUe snow-covered campus during the Christmas season. The veterans entered teams in all intra- mural meets and the intramural touch foot- ball championship was captured by the Veter- ans ' Club team, a hard driving unit that was never defeated nor even scored upon. In such other sports as basketball and softball, the veterans ' teams proved a threat to all rivals. On December 7, 1945, the club held its out- standing social function of the year, a Victory dance to commemorate the gallant efforts of all our fighting men. The dance was highly successful, especially for the veterans them- selves who experienced " that old college feel- ing " once again. Thus the records show a highly satisfactory beginning for the Veterans ' Club. This organi- zation, more than any other, has made every veteran feel like an integral and operating part of the University. As time goes on and its membership multiplies, it is certain that much more will be heard from the Vets ' Club in the days to come. first row: Hoff, Bowcn, Gregorius, McMahon, Callaway, Eichberg, Boisca, Albert, Mortimer, Kanawsky.

These twenty people will be ranked with outstanding students of other colleges in the publication, Who ' s Who in Amer- ican Colleges and Universities. These thirteen girls and seven boys have contributed much towards making the campus experiences of themselves and others richer in many ways. They have served on the coun- cil of the Student Government Association; worked with University publications; officiated at their sororities and fraternities, and other campus organizations; partici- pated in athletics; and served the student body faithfully whenever an opportunity presented itself. f« i row.- Bailey, Coyle, Daly, Daly, Flynn.

Rcid, Adele H. Stamp, Dr. Charles E. White. The great responsibility of advising and as- suring the success of the student publications of the University falls on the shoulders of the Publications Board. Acting Dean of Men James Reid directly assisted the students in the pub- lication of the Terrapin and the Diamondback in the fall of this year; reassuming his other duties here on campus as Dean of Men, " Swede " Eppley then took over this respon- sibility. The board, during this school year, was composed of the editors of the Terrapin, Genie Simmons and Lucille Stewart; the edi- tors of the Diamondback, Ann Troxell and Ray Hesse; President Dee Speed of Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary journalism fraternity; the chairman of the Student Board, Leslie Daly; the president of Women ' s League, Betty Jack- son; Dean Adele H. Stamp; and Dr. Charles E. White. The board meets occasionally to dis- cuss informally the problem of appointment to responsible positions of the various publica- tions. They also formulate the policy of the newspaper and yearbook, which in turn re- flects the policy of the University itself. The board serves in an advisory capacity to the students and has helped the various publica- tions through many difficult situations. During the war period the board worked under a considerable strain trying to get the necessary supplies to keep these publications going. Now that peace has come again, the student publications shall resume again the quality and quantity of former years. The board has done a great job in maintaining its high standards during such a stressful time. In addition to the staff of the various pub- lication, the responsibility of getting the printed issues into the hands of the students falls largely upon the shoulders of the printers and their staffs. The Diamondback staff would be lost without the assistance of Thomas Ang- lin of Anglin Brothers Printing Establishment; likewise the Terrapin staff depends greatly upon the assistance of Mr. Harry Lavelle and Mr. Carroll Hutton of the Thomsen-Ellis-Hutton Company. The Publications Board and the staffs are deeply indebted to these people and most appreciative of all they have done to make the campus publication possible during such a trying period. 55 Vke Vevia pdH . . . a good time condensed Lucille Stewart Co-Editor-in-Chief Betty Lee Saumenig Business Manager The Terrapin is unique among campus pub- lications. It is the product of genius, some- times mad, sometimes misguided, but never- theless genius. Our co-editors, " Lou " Stewart and Genie Simmons, had a busy year gathering Genie Simmons Co-Editor-in-Chief pictures and people with a will to work. Betty Lee Saumenig dashed madly around campus with contracts and a mercenary look in her eye. Nancy Simmons followed the photog- rapher around lining up the necessary group pictures, while Lillian Johnson pounded out copy on her antique typewriter. Sports Editor Fred DeMarr hounded the Publications office for pictures of Maryland ' s athletic individuals in action. Although all yearbooks must contain essen- tially the same material, it is the hope of each editor and staff to produce a book as different as possible from any previously published . Fol- lowing this tradition, the staff presents several innovations. The book is written according to classes following a student from the time he 56 matriculates until he walks across the plat- form to receive his diploma. All in all the staff has enjoyed working together; it has been a great experience. We have done our best to give y ou a yearbook that will bring back pleasant memories of the 1945- 46 year you spent on the campus of the Uni- versity of Maryland.

A special issue was printed on gold paper and distributed to the alumni and the students commemorating the Homecoming week end in November. Christmas was also an occasion for additional pages. The Diamondback staff felt that this was a year of continued improvement and progress.

The staff was small in comparison to the previous year, but it was well-manned. Ray Hesse held down the editor ' s job and was assisted by Sally Conlon, who reported on student activities, and Beverly Johnson as busi- ness manager. Jane Morgan did the copy for sororities; Frank Lisciotto, fraternities; Dottie Lyon, sports; and Pat Coyle, military. Doug Parkhurst made his contribution with his fine cartoons; and the talents of Jeannette Owen, ' 43 and Walter Kerwin, ' 4i, were borrowed to round out the book. The scene for the composition of the Fresh- man Bible was the Diamondback office. Every day, Monday through Friday, passersby could hear the members of the staff picking a t the typewriters. Consequently, copy for the book was completed in record breaking time; the book was printed, bound, and ready for dis- tribution ten days before the start of the fall term. The finished M Book was bound in a black leather cover with its title and seal printed in gold. With well over a hundred pages, eight pictures, seven drawings, and a complete map of the campus, the 194 M Book prepared the freshmen for their life here on campus. . . . and First row: Garrigan, Hesse, Johnson .

It secures the joint Bud- get for these organizations from the Student Board and adjusts the financial agreements between them. The members of the committee are the presidents and treasurers of the Men ' s Glee Club, the Women ' s Chorus, the Orches- tra, and the Clef and Key Club. Under the sponsorship of S.M.A.C., there were the many well remembered community sings which did so much to promote a feeling of unity and esprit de corps in the Maryland student body. Whether held out of doors in the natural amphitheater or in the Agriculture Auditorium, these variety shows were equally successful. Featured in the shows were many talented performers from Maryland ' s campus who received a whole-hearted welcome from the enthusiastic student body participating in the sings. Popular and patriotic songs, as well as the perennial favorites, directed by Professor Randall and seasoned with his nim- ble wit, filled the spring air and the venerable collegiate halls with warmth and harmony. Musical evenings such as " Maryland by Moon- light, " and " Hour of Charm " featuring Mary- land ' s Women ' s Chorus, and an equally popu- lar concert by the men ' s choral group were planned and carried out with gratifying results. Contributing in large measure to their success was the orchestra composed of Maryland Stu- dents. Heading S.M.A.C. this year was Barbara Brown, with Randy Randall acting as treas- urer. Mr. Harland Randall is the faculty advisor to the group. Among the Marylanders who contributed their vocal and instrumental talents to the musical activities productions were Kent Kise, whose rendition of Day By Day provoked a sigh or two from the most unromantic listeners; Rosemary Gordon, whose husky tones met the audiences ' hearty approval; Virginia Bradford and Dorothy Gooding, pianists; Par Brown, Maryland ' s flute virtuoso; Charlie Haslup, popular master of the keyboard; Lois Forrester and Eileen Simpson, vocalists; and a host of other talented Maryland students. Through the community sings and other musical programs, the S.M.A.C. kept a finger on the student pulse and gave the campus several evenings of fun. Raadall, Daly, Dr. Randall, Harryman, Brown. 61 Glejj ' CunJi Kedj Clef and Key, the campus musical variety organization, presented last November " Mon- otonee, " a variety show for the benefit of the Community War Fund. Featured in the show were Jean Maul, Rosemary Gordon, Bill Whar- ton, Lois Forrester, El Tall, Rose Marie Kelley, Ricky Brendler, Meredith Schmidt, Ray Spes- sard, Ruth Trunnell, Eileen Simpson, Helen Giddings, Kathy Bailey, Mary Frances Hunter, Bill Kahler, Reggie Hall ' s orchestra, and Gil Bresnick as Master of Ceremonies. The 1945 Varsity Show, " One Touch of Genius, " written and directed by Jean Daly, was produced by Wanda Pelczar, then presi- sent of Clef and Key; it starred Wanda and Dick Gumpper in a comical history of the Uni- versity. This year, the organization presented its seventh annual Varsity Show, " Strictly from Hunger, " written and directed by Jean Daly. The play, concerning the return of the veter- ans to campus life, starred Eileen Simpson and Kent Kise, with Lois Forrester in the chief supporting singing role. Also featured in the Everybody s in the act ' . cast were Rosemary Gordon, Dick Gumpper, Walter Beam, Sally Conlon, Connie Kranz, El Tall, Harry Elliott, Roman Geller,GoldieShall, Sid Sterman, Virginia Carpenter, Meredith Schmidt, Jackie Zelko, andRay Spessard. Com- mittee chairmen included Dolly Wilhide and Edith Krenlich, stage crew; Ramona Randall and Virginia Carpenter, publicity; Sally Con- lon, costumes; Marguerite Stitely, make-up; and, Mary Harry Davis, properties. The or- chestra was under the direction of Reggie Hall, and the entire show was supervised by Profes- sor Harlan Randall. Original music was composed by Marsh Stieding, Charlie Haslup, Vincent Bredice, William Moore, and George Aman. During the war Clef and Key " hit the rocks, " and until 1945 the campus had not ? 1 B- m Mm 1 n 1 ■ V 1 1 v " Jokel 62 been entertained by a Varsity Show since " Lick Mine Boots, Peasant. " Therefore, this year marked the revival of one more of Mary- land ' s long-standing traditions. To those who had witnessed earlier varsity productions, this year ' s show brought back pleasant memories and gave promise of even better things to come in the post-war years. Clef and Key is exclusively a student organi- zation. Shows are written, produced, directed, and staged by members of the club, with faculty advice and supervision by Professor Randall of the Music Department. This year ' s officers were: Jean Daly, presi- dent; Dick Gumpper, vice-president; Dorothy Dansberger, corresponding secretary; Marguer- ite Stitely, recording secretary; Ramona Ran- dall, treasurer; and Joe Lucke, historian.

Harlan " Doc " Randall, professor of music, served as the capable leader of this captivating group. Both in the fall and spring semesters the chorus sang to the men at Fort Meade and later had the pleasure of dancing with them. One night in November, despite sleet and a broken bus, the girls made their way to the auditorium of the Interstate Commerce Com- mission where they presented a delightful pro- gram. In March, they featured an " Hour of Charm " program in collaboration with a drive to raise funds for the National Symphony Or- chestra. It was a great success and has the earmarks of becoming another traditional cam- pus affair. In April, the girls were privileged to sing " The Lord ' s Prayer " with Mona Paulee, Metropolitan opera star, at a concert she gave in the Coliseum. The chorus, par- ticipating in the annual May Day Celebration, added much charm to that scenic background with their colorful gowns and mellowed voices. The big event of the season was the girls ' third annual trip to the United States Navel Academy in Annapolis where they put on a highly successful program on the platform of Bancroft Hall. Their accompanists, Virginia Bradford and Dorothy Gooding, contributed a large part to the success of the year. Miss Bradford played some of her own compositions throughout the season. The chorus met twice each week for rehears- als, and the girls were most faithful in their attendance. Their officers were : Barbara Brown, president; Margaret Harryman, vice-president; Lois Forrester, secretary; Mary Harry Davis, treasurer; and Barton Hall, librarian.

Under the direction of Harlan Randall, the University of Maryland Student Orchestra has played at many University functions throughout the year. At the June graduation, the orchestra played a major role; and. May Day would have been incomplete without its classical and semi-classical strains. The members have provided an invaluable service at the various functions on campus, including dramatic productions and teas. 65 (xdlufM GLJ The guests find a happy medium. Working with the speech department of the University of Maryland, the Footlight Club presented three plays during the 1945-1946 season. The initial production, presented in November for a four nights ' running, was Noel Coward ' s Blithe Spirit, a delightful comedy ably directed by Dr. Charles Niemeyer. Sets for the play were designed by Dwight Thomas. Jacqueline Hastings, Dorothy Krehnbrink, and Roman Geller in the leading roles gave per- formances which ensured the study of a warm reception by Maryland audiences. From April i-6, the club again made news on campus with its hilarious version of Hugh Herbert ' s Kiss and Tell, directed by Dr. Nie- meyer assisted by Rose Marie Kelley. The leading roles in the production were handled capably by Betty Gamble and Dorothy McCas- lin as Corliss Archer and Edward Muth as Dexter Franklin. An excellent supporting cast added their varied talents to the success of the play. Footlight members can look back on the past year with pride. The club progressed not only in its dramatic accomplishments but also in its organization and workmanship. Through Blythe Spirit returns. 66 And then there were two. the combined efforts of the club members, the University theater underwent many changes. A new ticket booth was added to the theatre lobby. To facilitate production, a general workroom for set-building was made available to the club; and new curtains, lights, and elec- trical equipment were added to the stage of the theater. Club membership qualifications were also re- vised at the beginning of the year. In the future, membership will be based upon participation in production, both in dramatic portrayals and backstage work . Any student in the University will be eligible for participation in Footlight Club productions. With the aid of its faculty advisor, Dr. Ray Ehrensberger, who has already contributed so much to the success of its activities, the Foot- light Club looks forward to a full reconversion to peacetime activities during the year ahead.

The com- mittee sponsored many highly successful ves- per and interdenominational services through- out the year. The committee meets monthly with repre- sentatives from each religious club. These meetings help to cement the feeling of toler- ance among the various religious clubs on cam- pus, and they aid in the invaluable exchange of worthwhile ideas.

This year, under the direction of Joyce Reside, the Red Cross Unit helped in the post-war activities of the national organiza- tion. The Canteen Corps visited Andrews Field monthly, serving doughnuts and coffee to the men; and, hospitalized veterans were enter- tained by programs sponsored by the Rehabili- tation Unit. The headquarters in Hyattsville received the services of the Staff Assistants one day a week; these workers had fulfilled specific requirements as outlined by the National Red Cross. It was the privilege of the Unit to play host to seven South Americans who were in this country studying the networks of the American Red Cross. First row: Knibb, Reed, Reside, Stewart, Armstrong.

In order to discuss the many problems confronting the Greek organizations, the Council held monthly meetings at the various sorority houses. The Council served as a mediator during rushing, instituted new rushing rules, saw that these regulations were maintained, and sub- jected the offenders to specific penalties. Looking back over the fall rushing season, the Council feels that the pre-school rushing system proved to be a huge success. The girls, who were interested in joining a Greek let ter social organization, returned to campus a week earlier than the others. Those seven days were crammed full of parties, teas, and other open- house functions. After these busy days and sleepless nights, the girls appeared at the Dean of Women ' s office to hand in their preference lists and later to get their bids. The Council feels that this new system did much in helping to ease the strain of previous years on both the sororities and the rushees who had to shoulder the responsibilities of classes and studies in the midst of these social functions. The Pan-Hellenic Council has instigated a Junior Pan-Hellenic Council which is com- posed of pledges of all the sororities. Instead of the usual pledge parties, this Junior Council sponsored a tea for the pledges of every so- rority, and it was a huge success.

Like the rest of the Maryland students, they looked forward to the initial year of the post-war era with confidence and anticipation. At the end of Rush Week, Alpha Delta Pi was proud to claim twenty-four new pledges as evidence of the enthusiasm and hard work that went into their many rush teas, desserts, and other social functions. By October the Beta Phi ' s were good for one more party, and it turned out to be the novel Red Sock Dance, at which everyone was brilliantly attired in a flashy pair of red sox. The moment anyone entered the house that evening, he was quietly relieved of his shoes and left to dance in his stocking feet. An hilarious time was had by all. The next morning many of the A.D. Pi ' s were up early to make the trip to Morgantown, West Virginia, to witness the Maryland-West Virginia football game, as guests of their sister chapter at the latter University. A tea for the parents of the Beta Phi members and pledges, and the annual pledge dance with Dick Betson ' s music makers, high-lighted the pre-holiday season. Both were unqualified suc- cesses. During the course of the year, a hearty welcome home was extended to the A.D. Pi ' s neighbors, the Phi Delts, with a dinner at the sorority house. Activities on the hill found A.D. Pi ' s presi- dent, Bobbie Burdette, also serving as president of W.R.A., and sister Kate Smith as treasurer of the same organization. Mim Drewyer and Mildred Preble read the minutes in I.R.C. and Spanish club respectively, while Ann Fennessey performed similar duties at the Riding Club. Other A.D. Pi ' s were active in Women ' s Cho- rus, Footlight Club, and numerous other ac- tivities. Shirley Andrews, Bettie Fearnow, Patricia 98 Schertz, and Doris Carson were on the Beta Phis ' engagement list this year, while pledge Kitty Evans surprised everyone by tying the knot during the Christmas holidays.

Climaxing the innumerable Rush Week teas, desserts, and other functions with the pledging of thirteen new Pi Phi ' s, the girls prepared to launch their fall social season. Shortly after the close of Rush Week, an open-house tea was held in honor of Mrs. R. C. Wakefield, province presi- dent of the sorority. Homecoming, an open- house dance, and initiation followed in rapid order. In between sessions of bridge and Chinese rummy, the Pi Phi ' s let loose with a few snow- ball battles, exchange dinners, and a Hallow- een party where the pledges kept the actives running till three a.m. Wartime activities, however, were not forgotten with the close of hostilities. A number of the Pi Phi ' s still acted as hostesses at various canteens, enter- tained convalescents, and sold innumerable war bonds. The Army Air Forces provided several interesting movies on rehabilitation for returning soldiers. These were shown at the house with the Kappa ' s as guests of the sorority. Among those trudging up the hill to meet- ings were Marjorie Frederick as Secretary of Sigma Tau Epsilon, honorary women ' s recrea- tion association, Secretary of Women ' s League, and Secretary of Newman club; Bobbie Brown and Barton Hall as President and Librarian, respectively, of Women ' s Chorus; and Carolyn Buck to Omicron Nu, honorary home eco- nomics ' fraternity. Jackie Hastings found time to play a lead in the Footlight presentation of " Blythe Spirit. " Janice Garrott was president 100 of Margaret Brent dormitory, while publica- tions held the interest of Ethel Jongeneel and Jean Smith. The new year opened with twenty-nine girls wearing the arrow of Pi Beta Phi and thirteen wearing the pledge pin. Between those first weeks of rushing and the final closing of the year in early June, the Pi Phi memory book records many good times and good friends and a year of fun and work for all concerned.

Dances activities, and the traditional bridge games crowded the calendar. The social season opened with an informal tea to w elcome the new chapter of Delta Gamma . To initiate the football season, the Kappa ' s held open house for all fraternities and so- rorities and followed the Homecoming game with a tea for Kappa Kappa Gamma alumnae. Highlight of the spring season was the Spinster Skip. Highly successful also was the formal Kappa pledge dance. Throughout the year various fraternities w ere invited over for after- dinner coffee. Active in campus publications were Genie Simmons, Co-Editor-in-Chief, and Nancy Sim- mons, Women ' s Editor, of the Terrapin. Dia- mondback duties were shared by Dee Speed as News Editor and Barbara George as Advertis- ing Manager.

C»f M Ji 103 " eua Qamma BETA SIGMA CHAPTER VoMrvM at OXFORD INSTITUTE in 1874 EstaMisfied at tke UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1945 In June of 1945 a pledge pin new to the campus, a white shield with gold lettering, was presented to twenty girls at Maryland. On October 13, 1945, these girls exchanged their pledge pins for golden anchors and be- came members of a newly installed Delta Gamma chapter. Beta Sigma. On moving into the former Sigma Nu house last fall, the girls were delighted by their new furnishings upstairs and down, freshly painted walls, and softly carpeted floors. During the summer the Delta Gamma alumnae, under the leadership of Dr. Cormelia Cotton, had super- vised the complete redecoration of the house in a modern manner. Added to the original group were Grace Barricklow, Delta Gamma Field Secretary, and Jane Ellsworth, a Deegee transfer from the University of Oregon. After completing a successful rush week, the girls began preparing for the day when Beta Sigma would be given its charter; and, they, the initiates, would receive their pins. The day of initiation arrived at last, and Delta Gamma ' s national officers arrived to take charge of the proceedings. They were also present for the round of social activities which followed. The new members were feted at a formal banquet at the Statler, another banquet given by President Byrd at the Hotel 400, and at receptions and teas given for the new initiates and by the DeeGee members themselves. At the end of this social whirl, the girls were so used to being busy that they found no trouble in turning their attentions and energies from social to academic and extra-curricular activities. Dorothy Dansberger acted as cor- responding secretary of Clef and Key, and Emily Hamon attended Alpha Lambda Delta meetings. Marie Bulani, another Clef and Key member, and Jo Hoffmeister sang in Women ' s Chorus. Bunny Holland was treasurer of the Newman Club, and the Canterbury Club mem- bers chose Libby Graham to act as recording secretary. Effie Ingalls could have been seen on 104 Thursday afternoons hurrying to her duties as hostess at the Stage Door Canteen in Wash- ington, and Pat Koehler put in many patriotic hours as a member of the Red Cross Canteen Corps. All of the girls assisted in furthering the success of Delta Gamma ' s national project of aiding the blind. First DeeGee to be married was Sidney Nimmo, who became Mrs. Brown the day before she was initiated. Yes, the Delta Gamma ' s, under the guiding hand of Jane Schreiber, have become firmly anchored in the life and activities of the Uni- versity of Maryland. During their initial year on campus, they have more than justified the warm welcome which the new sorority re- ceived back in ' 45. With their enthusiasm for University activities and cooperation with other groups, the DeeGee ' s give promise of being a vital force in campus life.

Socially the girls were off to a gay start with an old-fashioned hayride that resulted in fun and frolic for everybody. November ii, Founders ' Day, was celebrated with a formal sorority banquet. A round of teas and dances followed, including the Pledge Dance and Par- ents ' Tea. Many Gamma Phis were active in campus organizations. Marty Hughes succeeded Wanda Pelczar as president of Mortar Board, with Joyce Reside holding the pen in the same organization. In Red Cross work Joyce was president with Betty Jenkins assisting her as BETA BETA CHAPTER FoMnaca at SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY in 1874 Establwliea at tlte UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1940 second vice-chairman; and, Virginia Stewart acted as Chairman of Canteen Activities in the same organization. Ginny was also Cir- culation Manager of the Diamondback. In December Marty was tapped for Phi Kappa Phi, scholastic honorary, and elected president of Pi Delta Epsilon, journalism honorary. At the helm in International Relations Club was Randy Randall, who also held the treasurer- ship of the Spanish Club and Clef and Key. Jean Daly, again president of Clef and Key, led the group in their annual production of the Varsity Show. Louisa White organized the first Junior Pan-Hellenic at Maryland and served as the secretary of W.R.A. On the third finger left-hand list were Mary Jean McCarl, Joyce Reside, Ruth Haring, Paul- ine Juncal, Pat Vermilya, and Harriet Brown- ing. Gamma Phi brides were Wanda Pelczar, Gerry Gladville, and Luann DeTar.

Paint brushes, soap and water, brooms, and elbow grease were prevalent for the first few days. Due to the fact that the A.T.O. ' s were plan- ning to reoccupy their house in the spring, the Sigma Kappa ' s planned some redecoration of their own house. The many social functions given by the sorority testify to the good use which the girls made of their attractive home. Starting with an open house tea, the so- rority continued throughout the year to hold formal and informal gatherings, such as pa- jama parties, informal teas, and dances. The annual Christmas formal proved to be one of the year ' s highlights. At Homecoming the girls collaborated on a float with the Phi Delt ' s in which their theme, " World of Tomorrow, " received third place. They also won third place for house decora- tions during Homecoming. Founder ' s Day was celebrated by the Mary- land chapter and the Washington chapter with a banquet in Washington. Between classes and in their spare time the girls were preoccupied with bridge games or holding their usual after-dinner jam sessions. Many outstanding achievements were made on campus this year by the Sigma Kappa ' s. Peggy Morrissey acted as president of the French Club and Laura Petrone as secretary of the Canterbury Club. Dona McCoy was pub- licity agent of the German Club, and Miriom Turner, president of Junior Pan-Hel.

AlpJi a Oim M n Pi PI DELTA CHAPTER Founded at BARNARD COLLEGE in 1897 EstabUshei at tJte UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1924 A.O.Pi started its social reconversion with a bang-up annual open house of pre-war variety. As in past years, the dance was an overwhelm- ing success. Revival of A.O.Pi ' s traditional red and white ball gave another sign of the return to normality on campus. The " red rose, " adorned with a generous helping of A.O.Pi pulchritude, appeared in a portrayal of World Peace during the Home- coming day float parade. In spite of stiff competition, it unanimously took first honors. The University was honored by the presence of General and Mrs. George C. Marshall among the judges. Jeanne Bennett was gavel swinger for the year and secretary of the senior class. Kitty " versatile " Briggs was president of the Wesley Club, vice-president of the Sociology Club, and vice-president of the sorority. Phyllis Sell served as secretary of the junior class and treasurer of A.O.Pi. Omicron Nu tapped A.O.Pi ' s secretary, Lois Reed, and she reaped further honors by being initiated into Phi Kappa Phi. The pledge class showed its appreciation by giving a traditional dance for the actives in January. Babs Schneider started out on the right foot as treasurer of the freshman class and Rose Marie Kelly tackled the tough job of being president of her section of Calvert Hall. Another dorm pre sident was Dotty McClean of dorm 4F. Dotty was also vice-president of the Physical Education Club. Post-war plans were carried out by several A.O.Pi ' s in regard to matrimony. Muriel Rothman said " I do " to Lt. Fred Houghton, Jan Jordan to Lt. Ivan Oberhellman, and Gloria Eisele to Lt. Ralph E. McQuillin. Polly Sellars became Lowell Pratt ' s " Missus, " and Joy McFarlane ' s marriage to Major James J. McFarland was quite a sorority affair as sev- eral " sisters " preceded her up the aisle as bridesmaids.

AlpJna fidMxm Pkl ALPHA MU CHAPTER Founded at BARNARD COLLEGE in 1909 EstabWsked at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1943 Donning blue jeans topped by brilliant plaid shirts and wielding huge paintbrushes, the girls of Alpha Mu transformed the formerly masculine retreat of Sigma Chi into a feminine bower of powder blue and misty pink adorned with ruffles and floral trims. A housewarming tea was enriched by the presence of twenty- two new pledges, visible evidence of an enor- mously successful rushing season. Gay orange and black Halloween ornaments decorated the house for the first dance of the season in honor of the pledges. Phyllis Rosen presided as pledge queen. Highlight of the social calendar was the dance in honor of the graduating seniors in January, which topped an exciting week end of parties and a visit from A. E. Phi ' s province director, Judy Mann. This year saw Jean Yalom installed into Phi Kappa Phi, senior scholarship honorary, and Marilyn Miller tapped by Alpha Lambda Delta, freshman honorary society. Helene Aaronson was Pan-Hellenic Secretary. Feme Kandel became editor of the Sociology Club paper, while Beverly Brody served as vice- president of the French Club. Tema Goldiner recorded history for the Footlight Club. Viv- ienne Rose, who succeeded Hannah Seidel in February as Alpha Mu ' s president, was li- brarian of the Footlight Club and was re-elected treasurer of the Dance Club. Cupid ' s arrow hit often in the A.E.Phi house this year with the marriages of Rhona Benesch to Harry Cohen; Hannah Needle to Ben Seidel; Anita Reiskin to Ben Rubin, Estelle Wolowitz, former president of Alpha Psi Omega and of the newly formed alumnae organization, to Dr. Irving Jacobs. Feme Kandel became engaged to Fred Kol- odner, Dorothy Rovener to Mendel Friedman, Sonia Friedman to Robert Hallock, Helene Aaronson to Major Frank Rich, and Elaine Ogus to Lieutenant Robert Tepper. Newest heartthrob was Richard Lee Begun, son of Evelyne Bressler Begun, A.E.Phi alumna. As the girls of Alpha Mu looked back on the past year of college life, they saw accumulated memories of laughter and comradeship which they will always remember. 118 Members: Helen Aaronson, Rhona Benesh, Elaine Berger, Rhona Bernstein, Beverly Brody, Rhona Cohen, Irma Doline, Natalie Eskwith, Charlotte Frank, Shirley Freedman, Sonja Friedman, Ruth Golboro, Tema Gold- iner, Judy Goldstein, Lucille Gorfine, Lorraine Higger, Feme Kandel, Aida Kaufman, Florence Koningsberg, Isobel LeBoro, Myra Levenson, Marilyn Miller, Elaine Ogus, Rhoda Ottenberg, Vivian Rose, Anita Rubin, Tema Rubinstein, Hannah Saidel, Joy SimonhofF, Jane Ann Silverman, Arlene Stepper, Adrienne Winters, Jean Yahom, Naomi Ziggles.

The seniors were thrilled and just a little nostalgic, while the underclassmen were awed by campus life in normal times. Before the year was over, the girls were pre- facing remarks about canteens and service clubs with " remember when. " Even so, they still put in their hours driving for the Red Cross and entertaining at Walter Reed. With cars parked in the driveway and nylons back in circulation, Maryland became more interesting every day. Returning fiances and husbands claimed several of the girls, while the alumni secretary was kept busy sending out pledge pins to new-born Phi Sig ' s. The toil and planning and the fun of rushing were well rewarded by the wonderful group of girls who were pledged. All nineteen made their Phi Sig debut at a successful open house dance. Several other open house affairs plus a few dances, informal and formal, during the year, made the group ' s social life very inter- esting. Homecoming became even more mem- orable than the girls had expected when their " graveyard " won them second prize for house decorations. Highlight of the year was the tenth anniversary week end in May, held in collaboration with most of the alums. The annual dessert and bridge for the house- mothers was even more enjoyable than in past years. Exchange dinners, campus parties, Mothers ' Club meetings, and Founder ' s Day added to an ever crowded social calendar. However, all was not play for the Beta Alphas this year. The chapter participated in the raising of a fund for victims of rheumatic fever, the sorority ' s national project. Tuesdays and Wednesdays found the house practically deserted when the girls turned out for the Women ' s Chorus, Diamondback, W.R. A., Hillel, Riding, Sociology, Dance, and Inter- national Relations Clubs. 120 Members: Harriet Abramson, Phyllis Berman, Phyllis Biscarr, Brenda Blumenfeld, Alma Breadler, Janice Bre- man, Irene Caplan, Rita Chasen, Selma Cohen, Vivian Davis, Jeanne deLaniez, Jeanette Feldman, Eleanor Fish- man, Sally Friedman, Zara Gordon, Ferl Gensberg, Florence Greenstein, Betty Hollander, Barbar Krause, Harriet Krakow, Ann Levin, Vera Margolies, Maxine Rombro, Marilyn Rubin, Lenora Shapiro, Miriam Sibel, Ruth Sachs, Bemyce Stark, Edna Stark, Ruth Taubman, Deana Weger, Evelyn Weinstein, Phyllis Wolpert.

Mie mten uti G(Hmcli The Interfraternity Council, an organization which fosters better relationships between the fraternities on campus and the administration is regaining its rightful prestige after a natural war-time lag. The Council meets twice a month to formulate plans for its social and athletic activities, and to regulate men ' s rush- ing functions. The Council began the fall semester with its first full formal rushing schedule since before the war. Officers elected for that se- mester were: Mike Zetts, Sigma Nu, president; Page Chesser, Sigma Chi, vice-president; Bill The steering group . . 4 A0 •KS SAE ATQ Lane Bozick Gumppcr CohiU Phillips Thomas Tether Lisciotto 122 Gruber, Phi Delta Theta, secretary; and Dick Bozman, Phi Delta Theta, treasurer. It was this executive board that fostered the new improved rushing procedure, believed by the councilmen to be foolproof. The Council w as active in all sports events as it operated as a division of the Intermural Association. Socially, the members had a busy time. The Council resumed its regular rotary dances among the fraternities; but the climax of the season was the winter formal, held at the Indian Springs Country Club. This dance was hailed by many as the most successful dance of the semester given by any organi- zation. A committee headed by Charley Phillips, Phi Delta Theta, was appointed by the presi- dent to revise the point system for the Inter- fraternity Council Activities Cup. This cup, which is traditionally awarded at the spring formal, was not in rotation during the war. It was last awarded to Sigma Nu. The Council started the spring semester by reelecting Mike Zetts as president. Other officers were: Roger Cohill, Alpha Tau Omega, vice-president; Allyn Lehman, Kappa Alpha, secretary; and Dick Bozman, Phi Delta Theta, treasurer. With these officers the Council had a very successful spring semester climaxed by an Interfraternity picnic.

Some of the brothers were missing, though: Edwin Lentz walked to the altar with Ginny Reid, A.O.Pi; Dick Terry withdrew from school; Stanley Roth entered the Army; Jack Frost joined the Merchant Marine; and. Bob Bates left Maryland to enter St. Lawrence University in New York. Don- ning campus clothes and exchanging materials of war for textbooks. Bill Lane returned from the Merchant Marine; Buzz Sewell, Dick Lodge, and George Barnes from the Army Air Corps; and, Charley Phillips from Navy Pre- Flight training. Returning from last year were Dick Bozman, Chuck Ryan, Bill Gruber, Emory A. Harman, Dawson Jarboe, Leland Cook, and Harold Donofrio. The first month was a gala one for the Flyers. Dick Bozman, as president, saw to it that the house jumped to countless rushing affairs and activities. Open house functions were started once again and became a great success. Orchids were in order for the return- ing veterans who distinguished themselves in the service. Buzz Sewell and Dick Lodge blasted Hitler from their flying fortresses and bombers; George Barnes starred not only in campaigns over the fields and mountains of Italy, but also in the Spaghetti Bowl football game; Bill Lane conveyed precious goods and materials all over the world, while Chuck Phillips served valiantly in Navy Pre-Flight. All over the campus the impact of Phi Delta Theta ' s return to active status was distinctly felt as Emory A. Harman, secretary of the fraternity, was appointed social chairman of the Student Board. Emory did a fine job in producing the 1945 Homecoming Dance, which was one of the greatest in the history of the University, and also several regular Saturday night informals. Dick Bozman took in the money and balanced the budget of the Inter- 124 fraternity Council as Bill Gruber recorded the minutes. Dauntless Hal Donofrio headed the annual Tug of War between freshmen and sophomores; Dick Lodge, Charley Phillips, and Dauntless Don served on the ticket com- mittee for the Homecoming Dance; and, George Barnes returned to the Varsity football eleven. Yes, the Phi Delts are on their way. Present plans include an increased membership and outstanding social events for the coming years. Always present, too, will be a continued striv- ing for the achievement of the true meaning of the word " fraternity, " a real spirit of brotherhood.

They now total twenty-two brothers and sixteen pledges. At the beginning of the fall semester, there were only four actives left from the previous year; however, this situation was quickly changed by the initiation of fifteen new pledges and the return of many veterans. The brothers moved into their house on Knox Road in February and have been busy ever since renovating it inside and out; President Harold Thomas and House-manager Pete Def- fert, former Naval Air Corps " Ace, " have been bossing the job. Phi Kappa Sigma was very active in campus activities. Pete Bozick served the campus as manager of the Maryland Lacrosse team and president of the Rossborough Club. Victor Mullins managed the basketball team, while Jim Murray took care of the football team; Brother Bill Jameson assisted Pete Bozick with the Lacrosse team. The Jazz Five, local band sensation, was featured every Wednesday eve- ning at the after-dinner dances and other cam- 126 pus affairs; this band was made up almost entirely of Phi Kap ' s with Brother Cal Hub- bard starring on the drums, Brother Frank Bull at the piano, and Brother Dick Ruby on the bass fiddle. Brothers Ruby, Hubbard, and Bozick are members of Clef and Key, an hon- orary musical group on campus. The chapter ' s scholastic average was held up by Walter Beam and Henry Howden. " Walt " was ac- cepted into Tau Beta Pi, honorary engineering fraternity; and Henry was tapped by Phi Kappa Phi, scholastic honorary, and Omicron Delta Kappa, honorary leadership fraternity. Brother Beam also played a leading part in the Varsity Show. Brother Henry Fontana had a very busy spring semester managing the softball team. The Phi Kap ' s sponsored many social func- tions during the year. These included their traditional " Skull and Bones " dance, several picnics, and informal dances and parties. Members: Peter A.

After a torrid summer, they started the new semester determined to surpass their achievements of previous years. Since the Sigs were no longer in possession of their house on Norwich Road, the fraternity started the semester with nine stalwart mem- bers, one pledge, and no house. Utterly undis- mayed, however, the brothers plunged into rushing and came up with twenty-four men. All went well under the benign rule of Pledge Master Collinson, and twenty new members made the fraternity feel more like its old pre- war self again. Relighting the old smoking lamp at Al- brecht ' s, the brothers quickly bounced back into the swing of social events on the hill. Among their many to be remembered social affairs was the annual Sweetheart Dance, with K.D. Mary Esther Bines elected to the envious position of " Sweetheart of Sigma Chi. " This event was preceded and followed by many similarly successful social events. As for their candidates for B.M.O.C., the Sigma Chi ' s point with pride to Fred SafFord, who ably piloted the senior class to successful graduation day, while Fred DeMarr followed in his footsteps as vice-president of the fresh- man class. Johnny Newman did his bit for the boys as social chairman of the senior class, and Jim Edwards deserves a cheer as the first male member on the cheering squad in a long time. Nor have the Sigs neglected the athletic side of campus life. Jack Heise took over the man- agement of the basketball team with George 128 Gardineer, Charlie Marsteller, and Neal Hering as scrubs. Letterman Les Smith cut another notch in his gun by earning another letter on the gridiron. Brother Burnside helped the Maryland cause in track at the Southern Con- ference. The year has also been a prominent one in the love life of many of the Sigma Chis . Broth- ers Cullom and Carter were rudely ejected by the coeds when they tried to visit their old haunt in Calvert. Brother Page Chesser, Junior Prom chairman, took the occasion of that dance to announce his intention to wed and did it a week later. Many others among the brothers are no longer sporting their pins. Thus, ever advancing the old standards of fraternalism for which its stands, Sigma Chi has moved forward to the close of a busy, suc- cessful year. Previously undaunted by the stress and manpower shortage of wartime and showing a surprising ability to become part of campus life, Sigma Chi fraternity looks forward to a shining, peace-time era.

Highlighting their fall social calendar were several postgame dances and a most successful Homecoming buffet supper. At the end of the semester the S.A.E. ' s were seen moving into their new home behind the men ' s dormitories. Among the returning veterans who had a hard time finding their new abode were Proudley, Bohn, Stringer, Graham, Parsons, Johnson, and Clem. Besides making many changes and additions to their new home, the brothers had a busy spring semester under their newly-elected presi- dent. Jet Tether. They sponsored the ever- successful Founder ' s Day Banquet in Wash- ington, D.C., which was attended by hundreds; but the crowning event was the Winter Formal, an annual affair which has taken its place as one of the social highlights on campus. Always active in sports, the S.A.E ' s proudly boasted of three men on the Varsity Eleven: Robert Crosland, Richard Johnston, and Walter Bauman. The other brothers likewise partici- pated in many intermural games on campus and produced a winning basketball team. In order to uphold their reputation for leader- ship in campus organizations, the S.A.E. ' s were not only active in many clubs but held numerous offices. Willie Schmidt was vice- president of Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary jour- nalistic fraternity, and chairman of Interfrat Sports ; Frank Borges presided over the Newman Club and sputtered Dutch as vice-president of the German Club; Sports Editor Byrd Lucas was assisted on the Diamondback by Reporter Hodge and Cameraman Madison; and the musi- cal brother, " Gump, " served as vice-president of the Clef and Key and the Men ' s Glee Club. The boys were sorry to see " Colonel " Boyle close his illustrious military career here as captain of the R.O.T.C. and Student Band, but they were proud to find him nominated to the Who ' s Who Of American Colleges and Universities. Looking back through the year, it is easy to note the huge strides the S. A.E. ' s have made 130 during this their first peace-time year on cam- pus; they have made themselves an organiza- tion that Maryland is proud to have on cam- pus. The brothers claim that much of the credit for their success should go to Dr. Carrol E. Cox, who gave them considerate, friendly guidance as their faculty advisor.

Boasting thirty-six members and fifteen pledges, they took an active part in campus life and affairs. The fall semester saw eight of the Theta Chi members and pledges on the football squad, with many playing first string. Under the leadership of Dick Spencer as president, a full social season was enjoyed. A series of exchange dinners with the various sororities was started and proved to be very popular. The Theta Chi ' s were known for their participation in campus activities, both socially and scholasti- ALPHA PSI CHAPTER Founded at NORWICH UNIVERSITY in 1848 Estahlished at tKc UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1929 cally. In November, Bill Eckhardt was elected president of the sophomore class. Home- coming brought the float and house decoration which were absent the past few years. The annual Christmas Formal successfully brought 1945 to a close. Early in January eleven new members were added to Theta Chi, increasing the number of actives by almost fifty per cent. Between se- mesters the entire inside of their house was done over, and for the first time in over two years the house was filled solely with Theta Chi ' s. During the last week of February a new group of pledges was chosen after two weeks of rushing. A great number of exservicemen were numbered in this group. This pledge class will long be remembered by the Theta Chi ' s; among the pledges was ' ' Dixie ' ' Walker, whose untimely death shocked the entire campus. Several of the members served as pall-bearers and later journeyed to his home in Ohio. " Dixie " was initiated posthumously, and a plaque has been erected at the Chapter house in his honor. Under the leadership of the newly elected Jack Buckley, the spring semester was high- lighted by a semi-formal dance the last of March and the traditional Spring Formal at 132 the end of the semester. Other functions in- cluded several informal record dances, and a treasure hunt, the pledge banquet, card parties, and the annual Founder ' s Day dinner in April. June saw the graduation of Tom Graham and Bill Talbott into the fields of psychology and engineering respectively, while the other actives began a long awaited vacation. Thus the Theta Chi ' s completed another year, a year characterized by many and varied changes. With their membership increased by veterans of matured understandings and definite goals, they are insured of an organization that will match and outmatch those of former years.

It was a year marked by the meritorious achievements of the brothers in their many lines of endeavor, especially those famous par- ties which their return to their house made possible. Highlighting these parties was the successful reinstitution of the Interfraternity Rotary Dances which followed the return to their house in February. Another long to be remembered event was the week-end house warming party given by the pledges to wel- come all returning veterans. All are agreed that the house was enjoyably " warmed " and that this marked the return of the A.T.O. s to a full and active campus life. Fraternity elections saw Jerry Cleaver hand the gavel over to Roger Cohill; Ray Hesse was elected vice-president; Frank Licciotto, secre- tary; Dick Mclnnes, treasurer and arm-twister; and Chuck Beebe, pledge master. Rog Cohill and Sam Allen were welcomed back from the Army and Navy Air Corps, respectively, to start another school year with the Epsilon Gamma Chapter of Alpha Tau Omega. Nineteen pledges received words of welcome and wisdom at the pledge banquet from faculty brothers " Doc " White, Pete Getty, Paul Walker, and Harry Rice. Pledging was aided by the alumni and A.O.Pi sorority, who gave rush parties in honor of the brothers. For the Homecoming parade of floats, the brothers joined Alpha Xi Delta sorority to build a " World of Tomorrow " float represent- ing the Old Liners of tomorrow daydodging in an Ercoup. Second place honors were shared with the Alpha Xi ' s. Old familiar faces seen enjoying the Homecoming party included Tommy Mullens, Major Bossy Mishtowt, Lt. Clif Eisele, and Fred Johnson. Pledges Jack Clark and Bob Kambies, living 134 up to the leadership traditions and ideals of A.T.O., accepted the responsibility of steering the freshman class through that hard first year as president and sergeant-at-arms. Ray Hesse was elected president of the junior class, and Jerry Cleaver was elected vice-president of the senior class. Other brothers occupying posi- tions of prominence in campus life were Jack MacVeigh, vice-chairman of the Student Board, Hugh Ross, captain of the band; Rog Cohill, vice-president of the Interfraternity Council; Ray Hesse, editor of the Diamondback and presi- dent of O.D.K. honorary; Chuck Beebe, the " Hermit " of the Diamondback; and, Clark Luther, vice-president of the Veterans Club.

They w ere aided in this endeavor by those members returning to college life after serving in the various branches of the armed service. Among those brothers welcomed back this year were Kenny Bransdorf, J. C. Shields, Dick Hoddinott, Brian Fennell, Warren HofFecker, Herb Hardin, Ed Hurson, Henry Sunier, Jack Gilmore, Danny Boothe, Bill Ellet, Hal Berry, Tommy Jones, and Jack Flynn. These men swelled the mem- bership of the Delta Phi Chapter of Sigma Nu to twenty actives and fifteen pledges. The pledges and the actives were steered through the hazardous waters by prexy Mike Zetts, Vice-President Tom Chisari, Recorder Marty Wolfe, Treasurer " Muscles " Mussel- man, Sergeant-at-Arms Johnny O ' Connor, and Chaplain Les Daly. With this experienced aid, the life of a pledge created respect and esteem for the white star of Sigma Nu. Always active in athletics, the Sigma Nu ' s received the Interfrat touch-football crown as they came through this season undefeated. They bowed, however, to the Veteran ' s Club in the championship game under the arcs of Byrd Statium; there the Vets eked out a 6-0 victory in a close battle all the way. The varsity sports were well represented by Sigma Nu. Football claimed Tom Chisari, Les Daly, Harry Bonk, Roy Morter, Scoop Evans, Tommy Gibbons, Johnny Hughes, Emile Fritz, and Vic Turyn. Jack Flynn was reelected cap- tain of the basketball team and proved his indispensibility with his " dead eye " on the hard shots; pledges Joe Baumann, Johnny Hughes, and Vic Turyn rendered able assist- ance on the squad. Another indispensible man in University sports was Tom Devlin, who was noted for his track work on the 1940-41 team. Sigma Nu was well represented also in many organizations on the hill. Les Daly and ' ' Gig ' ' Flynn served as chairman and vice-chairman of the Student Government Association, re- 136 spectively. Bill Hoff was reelected president of the Veteran ' s Club, while pledge Tom Dev- lin served as treasurer. Mike Zetts had a busy time as president of the Interfraternity Council, the Riding Club, and the " M " Club. However, the Sigma Nu ' s have not been neglectful in their study of " Sociology. ' ' They presented their annual Sadie Hawkin ' s Dance, which was enjoyed by each Daisy Mae and her Li ' l Abner, who suffered manfully with his onion corsage. Other offerings in this line were the " Pirate Ball, " the Spring Formal, and many other outstanding social events. Although Sigma Nu is without a house at present, they have a chapter room at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Holbrook, whose three sons each wear the pin of Sigma Nu.

So many of the brothers had exchanged their collegiate clothes for those of the Armed Forces and had laid down their books and picked up a gun that at the beginning of the fall semester only two actives remained, Billy Greer and Wally Mann. However, with the return of Erny Eckels and Johnny Cochrane from service the chapter slowly regained its strength and status. Before the formal rushing season the fraternity had only one remaining pledge, Ray Richards; but, at this time four new pledges were given the K.A. pledge pin to wear. Despite such a small membership, Kappa Alpha had two actives and a pledge on the football team and another active on the boxing team; these boys maintained the former K.A. reputation of contributing good men to varsity teams. With a characteristically busy social cal- endar, the fraternity held many formal and informal rushing functions, a large number of highly successful dances including the Christ- mas Formal, and a hayride in the spring se- mester. February not only marked the beginning of the spring semester, but it also witnessed the return of eight more Kappa Alpha ' s from service. These boys started to make plans for taking over their house in the coming fall and making next year equal to those of the pre- ceding pre-war period. In intramural sports Kappa Alpha had a basketball team and a softball team which provided a lot of competition for the other fraternities. Being very active socially and having the reputation of an unselfish spirit, Billy Greer and Al Lehman gave up their pins to two very winsome lasses. The brothers were also very active in student 138 organizations. Bob Forsberg and Al Lehman held down the offices of treasurer and secretary respectively in the Veterans ' Club, while Billy Greer served as vice-president of the sophomore class. Al Lehman had enough time to serve Kappa Alpha efficiently as president and to make Phi Eta Sigma, engineering honorary; that is a record that anyone would have a hard time beating. Although the chapter started out very limi- ted in membership and much hampered by the lack of a fraternity house, the brothers have truly accomplished a great deal in bringing the fraternity back to pre-war conditions. With more and more brothers being released from active service, the fraternity hopes to regain and even supersede its pre-war status. The 1945-46 year was one of advancement; the 1946-47 year will also be marked by the huge strides the brothers will make in the social, athletic, and scholastic fields on the Maryland campus.

Phi ALPHA SIGMA CHAPTER Vownltl at the COLLEGE OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK in 1899 Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1924 At the beginning of the school year, the eight brothers of Delta Sigma Phi combined their efforts to make their chapter expand in membership and pledged many new pledges. These pledges Avere allowed under fraternity rules to elect their own officers, who assisted the brothers in pledge instruction. They were initiated into the brotherhood on December 15, 1945. The men pledged were as follows: Anthony Meushaw, social chairman; Milton Sappe, the piano player; Robert Wheeler, lA in the draft; William Callaway, known as " colonel " among the boys; Edgar Moore, next year ' s fraternity food advisor; Robert Shipley, expert rifleman; William Poling, ace of the football field; Donald Gleasner, Maryland ' s three letter man; John Schrecongost, a Bryant center; Donald Turner, aide to Ed Moore; George Clendaniel, the student; Theodore Krug and Richard Holzaphel, the boys with a car; Walter Fehr, the only father; Bill Brown, an ace on a baseball diamond; David Clawson, the good R.O.T.C. bandman; and Frank Dou- veres, a Navy man. The original eight members have not drop- ped by the wayside. Carl Bell is acting as treasurer; Edmund Besche is chaplain; Thomas Johnson is vice-president; Andrew McCauley, secretary; Charles Proffen, former-president; Gordon Gaumnitz, former-president of the Duke chapter; James Spamer, former-president; and William Steele, president. 140 From the very beginning of the school year, the boys had hopes of moving back into their house; they started the year out by doing some work inside and outside every week end, and they are hoping to have things ready for occupation by July. Since " all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, " the boys have succeeded in having a full social season this year. Dances were held at the chapter house on Friday nights during the fall and spring. Their spring formal at the Washington Aviation Country Club was a grand finale to a big social season. The boys as a whole answered to the plea of the W.S.S.F. campus committee and led the rest of the fraternities across the finish line, win- ning an award in token of their efforts. In- dividual brothers also received many honors: Don Gleasner, Bill Poling, and John Schrecon- gost were honored by the Touchdown Club; Andrew McCauley was elected as Sergeant-at- Arms of the new sernior class; and Charlie Proffen won the President Walter Jaeger Award for distinguished service to Alpha Sigma Chap- ter. All in all it was a most successful year.

The fraternity was represented by its members in almost every organization on campus; this record will be- come even greater as more and more boys return from service. At the beginning of the fall semester the boys pledged eleven more members from various parts of the state. These pledges were enter- tained royally by many formal and informal rush functions. With Bill Taylor as pledge master, they received their proper training from a boy who went through it all himself once. Realizing that they were hampered by the lack of a fraternity house, the brothers began making plans for reoccupying their old house, which was rented to the Pi Beta Phi sorority during the war. Despite this handicap, however, the Alpha Gamma Rho ' s did not want for social enter- tainment during the year. During the latter part of the spring semester, Alpha Gamma Rho and Pi Beta Phi held a joint dance at their house. In April they sponsored a very suc- cessful spring formal with many alumni mem- 142 bers in attendance; a great time was truly had by all. From time to time radio dances were held at the house in collaboration with the Pi Phi ' s. The greatest story of the year concerned the fall weenie roast; Fred " I am a Virginia boy " Hutchison ate ten hot dogs and drank in- numerable bottles of soft drinks. J. Maguire Mattingly, the Alpha Gamma Rho president, was awarded a sweater and the letter " M " for expert shooting on the Varsity Rifle team; Pledge Walter Bowling also re- ceived the same awards, establishing quite a reputation for the fraternity as a whole. Harold Thompson not only lost his fra- ternity pin during the year, but he also walked down the aisle to exchange vows with a win- some lass in June. This year was truly one that will long be remembered by the boys; it was full of fun and gayety, and yet it took a lot of hard work to retain the status the fraternity had before the boys left to win the war. The campus is glad to welcome the boys back and is expect- ing big things from the fraternity as a whole in the future. Members: Thomas Bennett, Allen Buzzell, William Hines, Fred Hutchison, J.

Duke Kaz- lauskas was the first member around in the fall, and the initial thing that he did was to seek brothers, who might also have strayed back to the campus. He found Ralph Gies, a student from the Eastern Shore, and the two began to work as a club. They pledged and initiated Harry Potts, a Florida lad, and then there were three. When the second semester began, among the returning veterans the boys saw Joe Chilson, Frank Seward, Barney Balch, and Nick Fotos. Then there were seven. The struggles experi- enced during the fall term were soon forgotten, and the club operated in a grander scale, plan- ning bigger and better affairs and functions. Duke in some unknown way kept on being president and appointed Barney Balch social chairman, and the Lambda Chi ' s started to gain prominence in campus activities. The boys kept up their tradition of holding the first spring formal of the season, and a grand time was had by all members, pledges, alumni, and their guests. With Brother Gies as chairman of the com- mittees, plans were formulated to drop in on the folks at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C., where Brother Harry Tru- man from the Missouri chapter has a lease until January, 1949. The men, in spite of increased social activi- ties and the necessary evil of studying, kept up a busy rushing campaign and pledged Charley 144 Thompson, " Top " Hancock, " Tinker " Chance and Gene Olmstead. Brother Chilson took over the chapter pub- lication and managed to put out two interest- ing issues during the spring term with the aid of Johnny Fales, the grad uate advisor. A lot of thanks, gratitude, and appreciation are owed to Johnny. Brother Steward spent his early Saturday mornings and almost every day with his dogs, making up for the social life that he missed during the war; he even went, occasionally, to meeting. Nick Fotos kept everybody happy in Annapolis by taking occasional week-end trips there, forsaking the Maryland campus, books, women, and slide rule. Of Harry Potts we are not sure; the last we saw of him he was trying to straighten out the monthly financial report of last March. It ' s been a long, hard way back from the fall of ' 4x, when the club started out with thirty members and ended up the year with only one surviving the call to arms. Ten more of these boys are due back in September; and with a house in their future postwar plans. Lambda Chi should soon be back at the top as a leading group on the Maryland campus.

Socially, the highlights of the year were un- doubtedly the formal dances held in Baltimore, which were sponsored by the Alumni Club there. In addition, the outstanding spring week end and the numerous smaller dances and parties will long be remembered. Ranking first among eleven fraternities was the crowning glory to S.A.M. ' s scholastic ef- forts. Indi vidual honors go to Jay Bisgyer who attained the memorable position of president of the freshman honorary scholastic fraternity. Sparked by Captain Howard Smith and " Flash " Bill Leizman, who made the all-star team, S.A.M. played second in the struggle for the football crown. While not quite as suc- cessful in the other sports, the lads of Sigma Alpha Mu nevertheless entered a team in every interfraternity competition. Captain Howard Rymland led the S.A.M. contingent in the R.O.T.C. while Norm Katz became Sports Editor of the Diamondback and Publicity Chairman of the Student Religious Life Committee. Aside from the men in the Veteran ' s Club, the fraternity was well repre- sented in other fields of extra-curricular activi- ties: Dick London, Sam Wohl, and Norm Katz in the Glee Club; Austin Oppenheim on the Interfaith Committee of Hillel; and, Eugene Fink and others out for lacrosse. The house, with the addition of some new furnishings, was well filled by the returned veterans; but the spirit of the men of Sigma Alpha Mu was dampened when they received word that two brothers would never return: Lt. Bill Birmbaum and Ensign Stanley Mann. Two mergers with A.E.Phi and one with Phi Sig were accomplished within the past year. Irv Jacobs and Mort Sarubin walked up the aisle with local lasses, while Captain Irv Rea- mer travelled to Washington University to find his spouse. With Rolf Bercowitz as treasurer and Norm 146 Katz as recorder, Sigma Alpha Mu looks for- ward to an even more successful season next year.

PUl TAU BETA CHAPTER VoMnhli at COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY in I9I0 EstabUsItea at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1925 The 1945-46 school year blossomed forth with a promise of a bright future for the Tau Beta Chapter of Tau Epsilon Phi; the returning veterans had brought that needed punch to the fraternity as well as to other campus organiza- tions. Such men as Robert Bacharach, Irwin Noble, Louis Pressman, Murray Leisman, Arthur Epstein, Earle Wolfe, Howard Shear, and Charlie Kramer all helped by adding their hard won experiences to the working of the fraternity. With a newly decorated house and with new furniture, the brothers really began to realize that peace once more prevailed and the typical collegiate spirit had returned to campus. In the realm of sports Bob Lewis was sprint man on the track squad, and from all reports he is mighty hard to beat on a tennis court; Foggy Noble and Harvey Morganstein were track managers; Sid Sterman continued to ex- change blows in the boxing ring; and, Marvin Boss starred on the lacrosse team. The thespian was Erwin Hoffman, who played a convincing role as the father in " Kiss and Tell. " Close behind Irv was Sid Sterman who played a much different role in " Strictly from Hunger. " Sidney Galler of the Zoology Department and Albert Aaron of the Physics Department were included on the faculty list. In February the undergraduates, as well as the Alumni, participated in their first " Jubilee " since 1940 at the Southern Hotel in Baltimore. It was a great get-together for both young and old. Men who were elected as officers for the spring semester were: Robert Bacharach, chan- cellor; Fred Sapperstien, vice-chancellor; Rob- ert Eichberg, scribe; Howard Shear, burser; Louis Pressman, warden; Irwin Noble, stew- ard; and, Sylvan Freeman, historian. A spirit was backing these men that gave the T.E.P. ' s a real lift and a bright outlook for the future. The varied group of pledges included: Charlie Kramer, Al Fried, Marvin Boss, Louis Ruttenberg, Jake Milliman, Herbert White, 148 Len Grossman, Al Gordon, Jerry Gotkin, and Frank Hirsch. A tremendous spring formal, which was held in Washington, D.C., brought the T.E.P. ' s highly successful social season to a close. With few exceptions all the men who left school to enter the armed forces were in attendance; it resulted in a reunion that will long be remem- bered by the boys. The 1945-46 year has been the beginning of a new era and one of the outstanding years in the history of the fraternity. With many more veterans returning in the fall, the fra- ternity is looking forward to next year as its greatest year on the Maryland campus. Members: Albert A. Aaron, Alvin R. Baylus, Alfred L.

Membership in O.D.K. is one of the highest honors that can be awarded a college man. Five indispensable qualifications for member- ship in O.D.K. are character, leadership, fel- lowship, scholarship, and adherence to demo- cratic ideals. Character is the first and chief consideration for membership. Secondly, the candidate must excel in one of the five follow- ing phases of college life: scholarship; ath- letics; social and religious affairs; publications; or speech, music, and dramatics. Finally, the O.D.K. must rank scholastically among the upper thirty-five per cent of the men students in his college. At an informal tapping held in January, Henry Howden, Edward Zeigler, and Ray Hesse were initiated. Until this initiation, Bob Spence was the only student member of O.D.K. on the campus. The four active faculty members are Professor Russel B. Allen, Dr. Ronald Bamford, Dean James H. Reid, and Dr. Charles E. White. Hesse, Howden, Spence, Zeigler. 152 J I ydcui Sckud Senior Women ' s Honorary Society Founded at SWARTHMORE COLLEGE in 1918 Established at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1934 Traditionally tapped at May Day, members of Mortar Board are selected from the junior class on the basis of outstanding scholarship, leadership, and service. The wearing of the Mortar Board pin is the highest recognition a woman student may achieve in her four years on the Maryland campus. In addition to being an honorary. Mortar Board is also a service organization. Activities for the year included participating in freshman orientation week, selling corsages at Home- coming, selling tickets and ushering at con- certs, cooperating withW.R.A. in the weekly after-dinner dance, giving a Smarty Party for eligible tappees, and spon soring a Career Day to discuss job opportunities. President Marty Hughes served the campus as Chairman of the Victory Council, founder of the Red Cross Unit, President of Pi Delta Epsilon, Secretary of Pan-Hel, and Advertising Manager and Business Manager of the Dia- mondback. Dickie Richards, vice-president, was President of the Pan-Hellenic Council, Busi- ness Manager of the Footlight Club, Treasurer of the Psychology Club, and Program Manager of the Old Line Network. Mortar Board secretary Joyce Reside acted as Chairman of the Red Cross Unit, Advertising Manager of the Diamondbacks and Secretary of Pi Delta Epsilon. The treasurer of Mortar Board, Lucille Stringer, was President of the Dance Club, Business Man- ager of the Diamondback, and a member of Pi Delta Epsilon.

It was later broadened into a national honor association. Furthering the fulfillment of its motto, " the love of learning rules the world, " the organi- zation encourages scholarship and character by offering membership to seniors who rank in the upper ten per cent of their respective col- leges. It has given recognition to more than eight hundred Maryland students since its founding at the University in June, 1910. Many students look forward to the day when they might become a member of Phi Kappa Phi; these members benefit much from the rich associations they have with alumni members.

National Men ' s Vrt n an lHonor Society Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS in 1923 Chartered at tJte UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1940 Phi Eta Sigma, national organization de- signed to honor high scholastic attainment of men students in their freshman year, requires for entrance an average of 3.5 in the first semester or in both semesters of the freshman year. Although the war has curtailed the activi- ties of the society, its members have tried to carry on as a functioning organization and have endeavored to keep in contact with its members now in the armed forces. With Bernard Lu- barsky as president and Edward Zeigler as secretary-treasurer, the honorary has struggled through the year with an extremely small membership. Because of such a decrease in membership, much of the burden of keeping the organization active has fallen upon the shoul- ders of Mr. Carl Hintz, the faculty advisor. Ed Zeigler left the University in January; but, while he was on campus, he served as president of the Lutheran Club. He was elected to O.D.K. and Phi Kappa Phi, in addi- tion to many engineering honoraries and so- cieties. Bernard Lubarsky, who graduates this June, has also been very active in campus activities on Engineering Hill and was secre- tary to Tau Beta Pi. Irving Kuzminsky, who took Ed Zeigler ' s position of secretary-treas- urer, was drafted in February; this left Allyn Lehman, second semester president, to carry on with the help of Mr. Hintz. With normal times returning to the Uni- versity of Maryland, Phi Eta Sigma hopes once again to build up its membership and regain its place as the leading freshman honorary on campus. Members: Irving Kuzminsky, Allyn Lehman, Bernard Lubarsky, Edward Zeigler. 156 Alfma Gkl kfma ALPHA RHO CHAPTER Vrojcs%iona[ Chemical Yrattmity FoMniei at tke UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN in 1902 EstafcUshei at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1928 Alpha Chi Sigma was established at the University of Wisconsin in 1901; the Alpha Rho chapter was es tablished at the University of Maryland in 19x7. It is a professional chem- ical and chemical engineering fraternity whose objectives are " to bind its members in a tie of true and lasting friendship, to strive for the advancement of chemistry both as a science and a profession, and to aid its members by every honorable means in the attainment of their ambitions as chemists throughout their mortal lives. " Although the war seriously curtailed the number of its members, the fraternal spirit was ever-present; the chapter remained active throughout the war, as several of its members were engaged in war research here on campus. Now that peace-time conditions have returned and have brought back many of its former members, the chapter is looking forward to future years of even greater achievement along scientific lines. The big activities of the year included sev- eral picnics, a tri-chapter Founder ' s Day Ban- quet and tri-chapter initiation; the Alpha Pi Chapter at George Washington University and the Washington Professional Chapter combined with the Maryland chapter for the latter two events. The organization also sponsored a series of talks by various members of the faculty whose interests were in fields other than chemistry. This national fraternity sponsors the Ameri- can Chemical Society Award in pure chem- istry. Here at the University the Alpha Rho chapter gives a year ' s membership to the Ameri- can Chemical Society to the graduating senior who has the highest scholastic average in chemistry.

Pnr 157 Wonorary Bacteriolog) ' Society FoMnJea at WASHINGTON STATE COLLEGE in 1925 EstabUsliea at t xc UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1932 As an honorary bacteriological society, Sig- ma Alpha Omicron has established itself on the Maryland campus as an incentive and oppor- tunity for those whose field of interest lies in bacteriology. The principal aim of the society is to maintain and cultivate an interest in the profession through a close and happy associa- tion with the Department of Bacteriology itself; through this well-knit relationship, S. A. O. entertains the privilege of sending forth from Maryland competent and enthusiastic bacteriologists. This year Sigma Alpha Omicron has estab- lished the precedent of forming a pledge class which is composed of bacteriology majors who are interested in learning the future of their chosen profession. This knowledge is obtained through enlightening lectures delivered by out- standing, well-informed men in the field of bacteriology. In line with the physical improvements in the department, S.A.O. has started to furnish a room which will serve as a meeting place for majors. As an annual enterprise, the mem- bers publish a Newsletter which reviews the work of both S.A.O. and the department. At the end of the school year, the most outstand- ing student in bacteriology is selected by the society and his name is inscribed on a plaque containing the names of such students from the year 1931 to the present. Final initiation into Sigma Alpha Omicron is extended to those majors who show interest in the society and profession and whose scho- lastic record merits membership.

To be tapped for Pi Delt, a student must have completed at least one year ' s work on a University publication holding a major posi- tion on either the business or the editorial staff. Each spring the fraternity holds a Pub- lications Banquet in honor of the students retiring from the various editorial positions, the climax of which is the announcement of the editors for the coming year and the tapping for Pi Delta Epsilon. Pi Delt ' s program for the future includes the installation of more journalism courses, the granting of academic credit for work in a major position on the Diamondback or Terrapin, and the sponsoring of a Journalism Day for high school journalists throughout the State.

Since its establishment, Sigma Tau Epsilon has worked in coordination with the Women ' s Recreation Association in sponsoring intra- mural sports. This year they held after-dinner dances, and basketball, badminton, bowling, tennis, and softball tournaments were spon- sored. Founded to encourage leadership, good sports- manship, and to stimulate participation in recreational activities, Sigma Tau Epsilon is the highest honor one may achieve in the Women ' s Recreational Association. Requirements for membership are good sports- manship, leadership, voluntary participation in W.R.A., outstanding service in the field of women ' s sports, and an all-time scholastic average of 2.. 5. Members must be upperclass- men. Tapping took place at the annual W.R.A. banquet in the spring. The Sigma Tau Epsilon trophy was also presented at this banquet to the winner of the girls ' intramural basketball tournament. The annual basketball gathering was held for the alumnae and undergraduates; and, the annual newspaper. The Chatter, was distributed to the alumnae. Officers for the year were: Betty Jackson, president; Jean Burnside, vice-president; Louisa White, secretary; and Jerry Pfeiffer, treasurer. Dr. Rachel J.

With the recognition and pro- motion of scholarship, leadership, and research in the field of home economics as its goal, the society carefully selects its members. The chapter taps fifteen per cent of the girls having senior rating and five per cent having junior rating for membership in the organization. Early in November initiation was held for the new members, and Omicron Nu activities for the year began. In December an apron sale and fruit cake raffle were held. An educational field trip to the Bureau of Home Economics in Beltsville was planned for January. March brought an " In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb " party at which some of the other cam- pus honoraries were entertained. The spring initiation ceremony and banquet, where a Na- tional Omicron Nu officer was guest speaker, brought new members to share the honor and fun of belonging to a Home Economics Na- tional Honor Society.

With the cooperation of daydodgers, dormitory and sorority girls, recreational activities continued to flourish on the campus. A complete and well-rounded program of athletic activities were presented for the Maryland coeds, and all the familiar sports featured were enthusiastically accepted by the girls. Each sport is managed by a different member of the Women ' s Recreation Association board and her assistant. A sports representative from each house of residence cooperates w ith the manager in organizing and carrying through tournament competition in all sports. Fall activities included hockey, inter-house bowling, and soccer. During the winter season inter-house and inter-class basketball was of- fered. The spring quarter presented inter-house volleyball and individual competition in arch- ery, tennis, and badminton. For the 1945-46 season the teams that came out on top in basketball ranked as follows: Sigma Kappa, Calvert, and Tri Delt; and in bowling: Kappa Delta, Anna Arundel, Mar- garet Brent, and Alpha Delta Pi. In the 1945 spring volleyball tournament Alpha Delta Pi won the championship. The extramural competition was in the form of a Sports Day of varied events. 164 Balance needed. Posture corrected.

Band provides much more than justmarchingmusicfortheR.O.T.C; it also furnishes a musical outlet for talented students. The Military Department, being very exacting in its musical taste, demanded much more work than the usual four drill hours; and, its members worked very hard. The band ' s performances were not limited to military functions; its notes were heard at all Maryland football games in College Park and Washington. At the basketball-boxing double- headers in the winter, the band also helped the student body present Maryland songs. In addi- tion to playing at the games, the band provided the musical background for the now famous tapping ceremonies of Omicron Delta Kappa, honorary leadership fraternity. Decoration Day and Maryland Day ceremonies would have been lost without the band ' s support. Maryland ' s band impressed everyone with its precision and fine playing, and much credit goes to Sgt. Otto Seibeneichen for his patience and leadership. In 1943 the present uniform of the band members appeared, a black and orange fourragere. Maryland ' s Student Band was more than a meager collection of inexperienced, uninspired horn-blowers and drum-thumpers. It was a well-organized, well-led unit which served the school in many ways. 171 (10 VG Jle id(f{4x2AieA The R.O.T.C. Headquarters are found in the New Gym Armory.

We need look no farther than Maryland ' s 1945 schedule to find the utmost in football thrills. It all began in September when an- nouncement was made of the acquisition of former Navy Pre-flight coach, Paul Bryant, and his staff. Such men as Joe Drach, Gene Kinney, Ed Schwarz, and Francis Evans, who followed Bryant to Maryland, joined with lettermen of the 1944 season and returning servicemen to begin a spirited season which brought one of the most favorable terminations in the University ' s history. Before September was over, the Old Line squad made an auspicious debut by crushing Guilford College with a score of 60-6. With their spirits high, the team prepared to rout the University of Richmond and did so to the tune of xi-o. This, the Terp ' s second victory, again saw Harry Bonk and Bill Poling as star scorers. October 12. was test and proof of Maryland grid might, as they gave the previously un- defeated United States Merchant Marine Aca- demy a set-back. Bobby Piker set the scoring pace with two touchdowns, with ix-6 as the final score. Hopes of a perfect schedule were lost when at Blacksburg, Virginia, V.P.I, scored an eight point victory over our Alma Mater. The winners played hard and well against the Old Liners, who definitely were not up to their best that day. An anxious crowd at Morgan- 174 town tensely witnessed W.Va. tie the score at 13-13. Bill Poling was the actual point-maker on all occasions, with Bob Crosland, Sam Behr, and, again, Harry Bonk in the limelight. A third disappointment came on November 3 as fans observed a 33-14 slaughter handed us by William and Mary College. The Liners ' able performance seemed to warrant a different sit- uation that day; but, fate ruled against us, and the Indians scored once on a fumble and again on a blocked punt. It was in this contest, however, that the crowd first view ed the Poling-to-Gleasner pass which proved so spec- tacular in later events. None other than General Marshall, Chief of Staff, turned up to behold Maryland ' s over- throw of V.M.I, on Homecoming day. Our squad jumped back into Southern Conference contention as they outplayed the Lexington men, concluding with an important 38-0 vic- tory. This was, indeed, a happy ending to the Terp ' s losing streak. Maryland ' s impenetrable forward wall brought the opponents ' running attacks almost to a complete standstill. Joe Pietrowski was the day ' s star, with Bonk, Gleasner, Behr, Piker, and Greer also pounding their way into the end zone for the count. " The game of the year " took place in Griffith Stadium on the cold afternoon of November 2.4. The University of Virginia, previously undefeated and untied, sank to low ebbs after their trouncing by the University of Maryland. The black and gold eleven reached unexpected football heights in front of spec- tators filled with excitement, wonder, and admiration. Passing, which was supposed to cut the throats of the Terps when administered by Virginia, only proved fatal to the latter when put into practice by the Terps them- selves. Threatening the Virginia men through- Carney Laslie Paul Bryant Ken Whitlow 175 Schultz Fritz Crosland Schrecongost Poling gains yardage from Cavaliers. out the tilt, it was Red Poling ' s pass, in the final minute of play, received by End Don Gleasner, that put the Marylanders on the victorious side. Another great factor in the win was the sensational 90-yard run by Sam Behr. It was a day to order for the Terps. As an anti-climax, our gridmen triumphed over the University of South Carolina, 19-13, on the first day of December. Center Jerry Barkalow blocked a kick which ultimately McCarthy Turyn Poling i ' • -•?» Turyn gets good blocking against Indians. led to a score by Bonk, with Ed Schwartz making the extra point. Bob Crosland, on an intercepted pass, went over the goal line, as did Behr in the third quarter. Thus, the Mary- land football team ended a successful year in a height of glory. In January a note of disappointment was evident in many as it became known that Coach Bryant and his staff had resigned to accept a position at another university; how- ever, the students were cheered when H. C. Drach Schwartz Kinney Barkalow Bonk Chii Behr Greer Piker Cooper Pietrowski Smith Bonk scores touchdown against Mariners. Byrd announced the return of Clark Shaugh- nessy, one of the nation ' s top football men. Spring practice began early in March with an abundance of familiar faces on the field. The team will miss such notables as Don Gleasner, George Barnes, and Tom Chisari, but will certainly welcome Vic Turyn, Pat McCarthy, John Schrecongost, and others. With all these men and a lot of school spirit, the Terp 1946 football record should equal, if not surpass, the victories of the 1945 season. Evans Bissell Clark Shaughnessy returned to the Univer- sity of Maryland as head football coach this spring after an absence of three years. During this period he had been coach at Pittsburgh. Shaughnessy, who is one of the leading coaches in the country, gained his first honors as coach at Tulane University. As mentor of the Chicago Bears, he became a leading ex- exponent of the T-formation. He took the " T " to Stanford and there produced a Rose Bowl team. In 1942. he first came to Maryland, and during that time the Terps were highly successful. Md. Opp. Sept. 2.8 — Guilford College 60 6 Oct. 6 — Richmond at Richmond 2.1 o Oct.

He had high hopes of producing a championship team after looking over the prospective players. The Old Line five had difficulties getting settled and underway; this was evident as the Old Liners dropped six out of their first nine games. During this time, the former gridiron men, Don Gleasner, Vic Turyn, Bill Poling, and Pete Pinocci, reached their best form, and, with the help of two GI ' s, Bill Brown and Johnny Edwards, the team started going places. The Old Liners ' luck began when they met Duke and upset the previously unbeaten Blue Devils with a score of 43-38. It was here when the Gleasner, Edwards, Pinocci, Brown, Turyn combination really began to click in grand style. Maryland ' s quintet rolled up six vic- tories out of the next seven contests scheduled. Their only defeat at this time was at the hands of the North Carolina University powerhouse with a score of 33-31- This tilt was one of the most exciting events ever witnessed at College Park. After this series of wins Bill Brown became ill and Johnny Edwards was added to the sick list with a sprained ankle. These two players had to remain on the bench and were a loss to the team for the rest of the season. Despite this fact, the Old Liners met one of the nation ' s top quints.

Army defeated the Old Liners 52.-15, and the Kings Pointers downed the quint 48-3 1 in an effort to make up for their earlier defeat. When they were really clicking, the Old Liners were labeled as good " dark horse " possibilities for winning the Southern Con- ference Tourney; however, in the conference meet, North Carolina ran over a weak Mary- land team with a score of 54-2.7. Although the Old Liners went down in defeat, a season of thrills was provided for the many fans who witnessed the tilts. 181 Edwards Baumann Flynn, Captain Hughes BASKETBALL RECORD Md.

Tommy Maloney suffered his only defeat of the season at the hands of Stan Wheatley, Kings Pointer, and a final 45 -3 count was received. Maryland racked up a 5-3 count over South Carolina; this was followed closely by victory over Kings Point. After that the hope- ful Old Liners were subdued again by Army and the Coast Guard. The final match was held at Catholic Uni- versity.

Al- though he had been here at the University for only a short time, " Dixie " had won the esteem of those with whom he had come in contact. He was a fine athlete and teammate and always held true to the Maryland spirit. His absence has been felt by all. It is to him who shall never again don the Black and Gold, that we dedicate this portion of the Terrapin. 187 ?.. vf i fifl i First row: Boyer, Falkenstein, Bacalla, Niemann, Saylor, Lewis, White, Svrjcek, Kelly.

V iaok In the fall of 1945, the first track squad that Maryland has had since 1943 turned out for practice. Along with the return of track came some of Maryland ' s leading track men. Colo- nel Geary F. " Swede " Eppley once again resumed his position as head coach after serv- ing in the Army. He received as his assistant Captain Jim Kehoe, former track ace, who also was released from the Army. During February the University of Maryland sent seven men to the Southern Invitation Meet at Chapel Hill, N.C. Ed Matthews broke the tape in the 440 while Tom Devlin placed sec- ond. In the field events Jim Kurz took third in the shot; and, the relay combination of Mathews, Dev lin, Price, and Smit topped off the Maryland victories by capturing the mile relay. The Old Liners met their opponents in nine spring events. From the showing that has been made this season, Maryland may once again have the outstanding team that was theirs in the past years.
