Thus over a period of eleven years, the University of Mary- land stands firmly as a symbol of the forward surge to higher knowledge. Therefore, we dedicate the 1947 Terrapin to Dr. H. C. Byrd, a man whose vision and foresight have made the University of Mary- land of today. HARRY CLIFTON BYRD Jy reface Une editors ' story oj a year at jVlaryland Ihis book which you are open- ing is our summation of the achievements of the various campus organizations. Unlike other organizations we have tried to preserve what the clubs and honoraries have achieved. For a yearbook is the accurate history of the yearly activities of the student body, and the history compiled in this publication we en- deavored to make as accurate as possible. We, the students, faced many crises this year — men slept on double-decker bunks in the Armory for three months; girls lived in dormi- tory basements; lines formed dur- ing rush hours for Delahunt ' s " chow. " Along with all this wait- ing at the book stores and the crowded classrooms in the Gym basement, the campus was also alive with the construction of dormitories, sorority houses, and classroom buildings. Parking lots were en- larged and restrictions which conscientious Dan enforced were placed upon daydodgers and campus people alike. Along with the Vet- erans ' Coaching Program and the Women ' s League, we felt the heel of authority. With this school progressed; days fled; before any- one could realize it, October changes to November; December and January followed fast. Boxing and the Junior Prom gave way to baseball, lacrosse, the Tri-Delt Sing and May Day. Then came finals, and for some five hundred of us — graduation. These days have been the pleasantest and the most exciting of all our lives. But now they are just memories — lingering mem- ories which are to be cherished as long as we live. We cannot pos- sibly remember all the happen- ings of bull sessions until three in the morning, bridge games, French professors, the unbeat- able combinations of athletic stars, or the evening in the Hut. But we can remember the most exciting ones. This book cannot possibly recall all the experiences to you. We do not claim to. But we have tried to do ex- actly this. However, it is very difficult to in- culcate all the sentiments of seven thousand teeming humans into one small volume. The staff hopes, nevertheless, that throughout these pages you will find some picture or phrase which will recall to you the details of the past year at Maryland. We have also tried to make the 1947 Ter- rapin distinctly different in many aspects. Something that is rela- tively new for Marylanders and especially for the graduates — is the section in the latter part of the book containing the spring sports pictures and results along with the views of May Day, spring activities, and graduation. These pictures of senior activity have only been represented in the Terrapin once before and allows the seniors to view their last collegiate days. For the first time in the history of our organization, the yearbook in- cludes paintings. Now we have not been very conservative with this idea. In fact, we have been overcome with the entire aspect. So you will find as you glance through the pages that there are five paintings in all — the Ross- borough Inn, the Administration Building, the Coliseum, the Library, and the Arts and Sciences Building. We felt that these struc- tures were all characteristic of campus life. For example, the Rossborough Inn is the old- est visible sign of the University. The division of copy and pictures is a new experiment and adds, we hope, a little variety to the contents. This we do not want to make tradition, but rather we hope to stimulate the varying of the annuals from year to year. Throughout the year, we have tried to cover each meeting, each dance, and each sport event. Thus each phase of the University life has been consoli- dated into a more compact space and knits the Greek organization with the sports and clubs into a heterogeneous mass. For many of the staff this required spending nights working, cropping pictures, typing copy, and doing all the small tasks so essential for a publication. This involved sacrificing week-end dates, cut- ting classes, losing hours of sleep, and spend- ing many hours working. This has not been drudging work, for we had fun assembling the contents. There have been mistakes and the in- evitable errors are present. How- ever, we hope that you will find this book full of memories and intimate details of the past year. Here I, as an editor, would like to pause and " wax " sentimental for I want to thank all those people who worked so tirelessly and so pa- tiently to make this volume. This included able photographers who labored in the dark- room until the early hours; those who wrote and proofread copy; gals who responded to the plea for office workers; boys who did the heavy work, balanced books, bought the cokes, and walked the gals home on the cold blustery nights. I feel very indebted to all of you. The success of our book cannot be judged by any group of professional journalists or pho- tographers. To you, depends the success or failure of the Terrapin. To you, then, the students of the 1946-47 University of Mary- land, this book is humbly submitted for your judgment. Jean Chickering, Editor-in-Chief Oontents Book Freshinen Freshmen harmonize to the fast tempo of college life. Greeks obtain new mem- bers and pledges.

Rushing, registration, and a whirl of dances . . . now only a pleasant memory. Ihe University of Maryland saw the first peace-time year bringing a great influx of students to its folds. The major part of these students were incoming and retiu-n- ing veterans. Emergency housing projects were immediately undertaken, and unused space hastily converted into classrooms. Sorority welcome mats were dusted oflf as 300 quivering and none-too-confident rushees crossed the thresholds of the various Greek houses. After the whirl of parties which lasted for a week, broken only by a Terrace Dance held on the patio of Dorm C and a Religious Life Reception given in the Maryland Room, the bewildered neophytes made their all- important choices of sororities. Following hard on the heels of rushing, not even allowing the girls time to recuperate from the tea and punch epidemic, came regi- stration. Rumors were gathered that regis- tering was a breeze, but these were quickly dispelled when the Freshmen went through sectioning and waited hours in lines for English, Botany, Speech, etc. The second Freshman get- to-gether was a reception a la grand scale held in the Coliseum. There the new students were introduced to the S.G.A. executives and to the leaders of the various organi- zations on campus; old M.U. tradi- tions were reviewed, and, to top off the evening, there was dancing to the music of Walt Salb and his Orchestra. During the football season the students came forth with top spirit and enthusiasm. The Independents took the proverbial cake for the most unique pep rally, although other groups were not slackers when it came to whitewashing and obvious zeal. One of the biggest features of the year was the Academic Convocation for all students and faculty, held on November 8th. The guest speaker was the Reverend Mr. Brown Harris. Faculty, Seniors and R.O.T.C. marched into the Coliseum in file and took their respective places. Elections of Freshman class oflBcers met postponement several times. Finally, after much soliciting and campaigning by the candi- dates and their agents, poUs were opened and votes counted. Those elected to the realm of ' oflBcerhood ' were: Dee Libbey, president; Ray Callegary, vice-president; Betty Banks, secre- tary; Johnny Appel, treasurer; Peggy O ' Con- nor, historian; Ken Fowler, ser- geant-at-arms ; Clifford May, Men ' s League representative; Margaret Showell, Women ' s League repre- sentative. Having accustomed themselves to the tempo of the school, the Frosh sat back, took a deep breath, and wondered, " What next? " 19 President Dr. Harry difton Byrd The University of Maryland has an un- usual leader. Dr. Harry Clifton Byrd has been our President since 1936. Much has been written and spoken in eulogy of what he has done for the University, but it is doubtful that ' Curley ' ever thinks about his numerous achievements. President Byrd ' s thoughts about Maryland are not centered in only what has been done in increasing the physical plant or in improving the educational stand- ards of the University, but also he is looking into the years ahead with a vision of what the University of Maryland will be ten, twenty, or fifty years hence. If a history of his life is ever written, it might well bear the title, " Look Ahead. " Once this year, when Dr. Byrd was asked why he was always plan- ning for things so far ahead, he replied laughingly, " Maybe it ' s because I ' ve been cussed so much in the past, that I don ' t dare look back. " Dr. Byrd graduated from the old Maryland Agricultural College in 1908 with the degree of Bachelor of Science in engineering. He later studied law at George Washington Uni- versity and Georgetown University, of Wash- ington, D. C, and did special work at Western Maryland College (LL.D.); Washington Col- lege (LL.D.); and Dickinson College (D.Sc). To name all of Dr. Byrd ' s many honorary degrees would be a tough job even for his secretaries. Following graduation from Maryland, Dr. Byrd figured in a number of pursuits, among them professional baseball, high-school coach- ing, and writing on a newspaper. He returned to his Alma Mater in 1912, and has been as sociated with the University ever since. Board of Regente The Board of Regents is the policy-making body for the University. There are eleven members appointed by the Governor for a term of nine years each. These appointments are subject to confirmation by the Senate. We are fortunate in having on our present Board a group of men whose interests and activities go far beyond what ordinarily might be termed, " in line of duty. " All mem- bers have had careers that emphasize the values lying in education and research. In addition, several members of the Board are tied to the University through sentiment, as well as by oflScial position. Judge William P. Cole, Jr., Chairman of the Board, for instance, is a graduate of the University ' s Engineering College and of the Law School. He was one of Maryland ' s leading lawyers until he be- came a member of Congress. Recently, Judge Cole became Judge of the U.S. Customs Court in New York. Usually appointments are made after a good deal of deliberation as to the needs of the University. Members are chosen because they are outstanding in, and represent varied fields which are connected with, the Univer- sity. These fields include agriculture, indus- try, aviation, business corporations, welfare projects, and other projects attributing to the policy and management of the University. Members of the Board of Regents include: Thomas R. Brookes, Vice-Chairman; Stan- ford Z. Rothschild, Secretary; J. Milton Pat- terson, Treasurer; Dr. E. Paul Knotts, Glenn L. Martin, Harry H. Nuttle, Philip C. Turner, Mrs. John L. Whitehurst, Charles P. McCor- mick, and Senator Millard E. Ty dings. 20 Administration Oollege of Agricnltnre As it takes more than a house to make a home, so it takes more than a student body to make an educational institute. The admini- stration, faculty, and students should be thought of inclusively as the composition of the University. In its important position, the primary function of the administration is to act as coordinator for and between the faculty and students. Miss Alma Preinkert, Registrar, sui)ervises the registration and records of all the students. She is responsible for commencement arrange- ments and the publication of the student- faculty directory. Miss Preinkert attended the University of Maryland and George Wash- ington University, receiving the degree of M.A. Dr. Edgar Long, Director of Admissions, holds the important position of passing upon the application of every student who enters the University. He is a graduate of Blue Ridge College, Kansas State University, and Johns Hopkins University, where he took his Ph.D. Mr. Howard Rauelstad, Librarian, is the acting director of the libraries in College Park and the professional school in Baltimore. He attended the Universities of Illinois, Colum- bia, and Chicago, receiving the degrees of B.A., M.A., and B.S.L.S. Mr. Charles L. Benton, Comptroller, exe- cutes all the financial matters of the Univer- sity. He is faced with the full time jobs of bookkeeping, budget making, and distribut- ing of payroll to personnel. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland, receiving the degrees of M.S. and C.P.A. Mr. T. A. Hutton, Purchasing Agent, handles the buying of equipment for the main- tenance of the University. He received his B.A. from the University of Nebraska. The College of Agriculture offers both general and specialized training to students who wish to prepare for professional work in the field of agriculture. It provides a curric- ula for those students who wish to engage in farming, Uvestock production, dairying, etc., or in the specialized scientific activities con- nected with these industries. Curricula within the College is divided into three classes: Technical, Scientific, and Special. Technical is designed to prepare the students to be farm owners, agents, salesmen, or executives in agricultural businesses. Scien- tific prepares the student for positions such as technicians, teachers, or investigators. The University is provided with excellent facilities for research and instruction in agri- culture. Under the guidance of Dean T. B. Symons, the functions of the individual de- partments in the College are closely coordi- nated with the University. Farms run by the University, totaling around 1200 acres, are operated for instructional and investiga- tional purposes. This includes one of the most complete and modern plants for dairy and 21 animal husbandry work in the country, and also there are herds of principal breeds of dairy and beef cattle, as well as other live- stock, for purposes of instruction and re- search in these industries. Accordingly, men and women students are given a basic general education while they are being instructed in the various fields of agriculture. College of Arts and Seiences The College of Arts and Sciences is divided into two groups; the first is the lower division, which is designed to give the student a basic general education and to prepare him for specialization in his last two years; the second is the upper division, which is subdivided into four parts. These four subdivisions are the divisions of Biological Sciences, Humanities, Physical Sciences, and Social Sciences. This upper division directs the courses of students doing their major work in their Junior and Senior years. This year a great expansion of the faculty was necessary because of the increase in enroll- ment. The registration of last year has been doubled this semester. Eight new members have been added to the History Department, and six more to the Sociology Department. The English Department and also the Depart- ment of Mathematics have been greatly ex- panded. Thus, the College of Arts and Sciences is making the necessary adjustments to meet the educational needs of a post-war world. Under the accurate guidance of Acting Dean J. Free- man Pyle, the College is preparing to furnish students and returning service personnel with training in the social, biological, and physical sciences, and the humanities. This form of training affords the student an opportunity to acquire a general education and prepares him for his major in his last two years. CoDege of Boisiness and Public Administration Training students for effective management is the primary objective of the College of Busi- ness and Public Administration. The situs of the University affords good opportunities for students to study the economical and com- mercial problems of two metropolitan centers, Baltimore and Washington. After graduation, the student is qualified for business and govern- mental positions and for teaching commercial subjects and economics in high schools and colleges. The College has greatly increased in enroll- ment this year. In comparison to the pre-war number of 400 is the 1946 registration of 1200. The enrollment is only one of the growing parts of B.P.A. Many outstanding instructors have been added to the roster of the original faculty, and more will be needed as the regis- tration increases. Established this year: the Bureau of Busi- ness of Economic Research; Department of Economics under acting head Dr. Carl J. Hatzlaff; a curriculum in Industrial Manage- ment under Prof. Wilham J. McLarney; and finally, a curriculum in Air Transporta- tion and Management under Dr. John Fred- erick, which is destined to become very popu- lar as well as imp ortant. Dean J. Freeman Pyle, dean of the College of Business and Public Administration, came to Maryland in 1942, from the University of Chicago where he was a member of the faculty. tt (JoDege of GdaratioD The College of Education meets the needs of undergraduates preparing to teach in high, vocational, and preparatory schools; students preparing for educational work in trades and industries; students preparing to become club or community recreation leaders; and grad- uate students preparing for teaching or ad- ministrative positions. Several new departments have been added to the original ones of the College. An Art Education Department has been developed with the cooperation and help of the art de- partments of the College of Home Economics and Arts and Sciences. Recently added to the curriculum were Dental Education and Nur- sery School Education. Physical Education has expanded to include Recreation and Health Education. New members of the faculty include Dr. Clarence Newell, Associate Professor of Edu- cational Administration; Dr. Lee Hornbake, Associate Professor of Industrial Education; Dr. Edna Meshke, Associate Professor of Home Economics Education; and Dr. Edna McNaughton, Associate Professor of Early Childhood Education. This year was highlighted by the return of Dr. Benjamin, Dean of the College, who had served as a Colonel in the Army since 1941. While in the service, Dean Benjamin was ap- pointed head of the Division of International Education in the U.S. Government OflSce of Education. College of Engifleeriiig Symbolic and primarily associated with the College of Engineering is the cUmb to reach the tallest and most typical of the Maryland buildings. Under the roof of this engineering ' s shelter classes are conducted on the Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical phases of Engineering. Although the principal aim of the College is to train young men and women for the profes- sional field of Engineering, it insists that they have sufficient cultural covu-ses to equip them for their duties as citizens. With eight years of practice in Civil En- gineering, both in the tropics and in the United States, Dean S. Sidney Steinberg became an instructor at the old Maryland State College of Civil Engineering in 1918. In 1920 he became Professor and head of the Department of Civil Engineering. He was named Dean of the College in 1936. Ooiiege of flome Gconofliics The program and curricula of the College of Home Economics is set up with three things in view. The first is jjersonal development; the second, training and education for home- making; the third, training for a professional career. This last point is becoming increas- ingly important, as the demand for Home 23 Economists in business organizations is be- coming greater as time goes by. Now that the war is over and the many war services are ended, a large number of students from the College are entering into the fields of teaching, extension, and dietetics in the two nearby metropolitan centers, as well as in many other large cities all over the country. With the thought of extension in view, several new additions to the program have been added. A curriculum in Crafts has been developed with Mr. Gordon Lawson in charge. The Foods and Nutrition Department has ex- panded and three new members. Miss Mary Devore, Miss Mary Sesson, and Miss Dorothy LeGrand, have been added to the faculty. The top floor of the Home Economics build- ing is expected to be completed in the near future. In this addition will be located labora- tories for Textiles, Food Research, Photog- raphy, Home Management, and Work Sim- plification. A fund for scholarships is being prepared this year, under the direction of Miss Marie Mount, Dean of the College. These scholar- ships are buijt up on the unit plan. dollege of Military Science, Piiysical Education, and Recreation The College including Military Science, Physical Education, and Recreation is a new addition to the Maryland campus. The cen- tral oflBce of the College was established in the new Gym Armory. Acting Dean, Col. Har- land Griswold, is responsible for formulating the minute details in connection with the establishment of the College. The original concept was Dr. Byrd ' s, and all plans were subject to his approval. Dr. Cotterman was a great help in setting up some of the partic- ulars for the functioning of the new College. The majority of the Physical Education majors are now under the College of Educa- tion, but by the fall of 1947, they will be trans- ferred to the College of Physical Education. The College is designed so that those per- sons who are returning from service can get maximum credits for knowledge they attained while in the Armed Forces. The transferable or acknowledged credits are basically those for R.O.T.C. Many students who entered this year are regular oflBcers of the Air Corps. The Government has consented to send these men to college for a maximum of four semes- ters provided they are able to attain a degree in that limited time. School of Irsing Even though the war has ended, there is still a vital need for trained nurses, not only at home and in city institutions, but also in the convalescent hospitals for service men. The University Hospital in Baltimore offers training and inspiration for those women who wish to learn an art that will earn them grati- tude from all America. One of the most significant symbols of the nursing profession is the white graduate cap, which differs from hospital to hospital. 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, Eng- land. 24 DeaH of Women Student life Committee When Adele Hagner Stamp first came to the Maryland campus in 1922 to act as Dean of Women, there were only 43 coeds here. With much enthusiasm, she has seen the women ' s department grow from the small handful to the present enrollment of almost 2000. Our Dean of Women is a Marylander through and through. After gaining her B.A. degree from Tulane University, she came to Maryland to receive her M.A. Women students come to her in ever increas- ing numbers for guidance in their problems. When asked what part of her full time job she likes the best, she repUed, " I like all of it, for it has been a thriUing experience to watch the growing of the University, and to work with the yoimg people of this generation. " Led by Dr. Charles White, the Student Life Committee serves as an advisory body for student affairs and acts as coordinator be- tween the administration and the students. Though the committee holds conferences as a unit, it generally carries out its policies through various sub-committees. This powerful group is responsible for grant- ing charters to all new clubs, including frater- nities and sororities; also, the committee is responsible for health and sanitation on the campus. Members of this governing body are: Col. Harlan G. Griswold, Dr. James H. Reid, Dr. Susan E. Harman, Miss Alma Preinkert, Prof. Charles F. Kramer, Jr., Dr. Dudley Dillard, Dr. P. Lejins, Dean Geary Eppley, and Dr. Norman Phillips. Dean of Men Geary F. Eppley, Dean of Men, is not only the biisiest man on campus, but also the hard- est to get to see. After securing his B.S. and M.S. from this University, Dean Eppley worked as Associate Professor in the College of Agriculture. He became Dean of Men in 1937, and has held that position steadily with the exception of a few war years. Dean Eppley ' s duties are many and varied. He himself best described his activities when he said, " I worry about everything outside the classroom. " He supervises student em- ployment and gives guidance to men students. Dean Eppley ' s position might be better titled Director of Student Welfare. In his capacity as Athletic Director, he promotes a full com- prehensive athletic program with the interest of audience and participants in mind. Gradnate Sciiool Oonncil The Graduate School offers facilities for study leading to all graduate degrees; the degrees given are Master of Arts, Master of Science, Master of Education, Master of Busi- ness Administration, and the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. The general f imctions of the Graduate School faculty are carried on by the Graduate Coim- cil, headed by Dr. Charles O. Appleman. Dr. Appleman has served as Dean of the Council since 1919, when it was established. Dr. Ap- pleman received his degree of Doctor of Phi- losophy in Bacteriology from the University of Chicago. The opportunities afforded graduate stu- dents have been greatly enhanced by the es- tablishment of fellowships by the Federal Government and numerous private industries. 25 Interfraternity Coancil " A mystic bond of brotherhood makes all Tnen one. " — Thomas Carlyle. After a war-time lag, the Interfraternity Council has made great strides in regaining its prestige as being one of the strongest organ- izations on campus. The purpose of the Council is to foster better relations between the fraternities and the administration. Meet- ing twice monthly, it formulates plans for social and athletic activities, and regulates men ' s rushing functions. Fall rushing, starting later than usual, was a tremendous success with more than two- hundred and fifty men pledged. The Council has long sought to keep its methods of rushing on the highest possible level and especially so during the past year. OflBcers elected for the fall semester were: ' Duke ' Kazlauskus, Lambda Chi Alpha, presi- dent; Jack Clark, Alpha Tau Omega, vice- president; Ralph Penny witt. Kappa Alpha, secretary; and Bob Mattingly, Alpha Gamma Rho, treasurer. The Council was active in organizing all sports events of the Intramural Association and inaugurated an Interfraternity Bowling League which was actively supported by all the fraternities in the Council. The Interfraternity Spring Formal, held at Washington ' s Hotel Statler, graced the early part of February. Music was by Glen Gray and Company. With the return of many veterans to the campus, most of the fraternities are stronger than before the war. Prospects for the future strength of the fraternities is assured for some time to come with the increasing enrollment of men into the University. The Pan-Hellenic tadi The Pan-Hellenic Association strove this year for better cooperation among sororities, independents, and the administration. Thurs- day night meetings proved interesting to the two representatives from every sorority, and the Pan-Hellenic spirit was carried back to their respective groups. For the second year, Pan-Hell sponsored a pre-school rush season. Two Open House Teas opened the week of exciting parties for the rushees. Preference Tea climaxed this fall rush season; two days later 138 coeds were sporting various pledge pins from one of the 13 sororities. Junior Pan-Hell was reorganized this year. This Council is composed of the presidents of the pledge classes and one rotating member from each sorority. The vice-president of the Senior Council is in charge of the junior group. Through the American Theater Wing, Pan- Hellenic Council sponsored variety shows for the entertainment of the service men in hos- pitals in the Washington vicinity. The sorori- ties also entertained informally in the wards with small acts, group singing, individual per- formances, and bridge playing. The main social event during the year was the Pan-Hellenic Spring Formal. The first night of spring was started off right to the music of Dick Jergens. Officers are chosen by a process of rotation among the sororities. This year Phyllis Bis- carr. Phi Sigma Sigma, served as president, Pat Bennington, Sigma Kappa, vice-presi- dent, Sara Ann Huebel, Pi Beta Phi, secre- tary, and Poe Ewell, Kappa Kappa Gamma, treasurer. «e Phi Delta Ma MARYLAND ALPHA CHAPTER Founded at MIAMI UNIVERSITY in 1848 Established at MARYLAND in 1930 Combining with the other brothers already present, the boys from as far back as 1938 brought the fraternity into the prestige and power it had enjoyed in past years. Boyd Waters and Gene Vreeland shared prexy duties. Continuing as a formidable power in ath- letics, Phi Delt produced these well-known varsity athletes: Tommy Mont, Jack Reds ' Wright, George Simler, John Fahrner, and George Barnes, assistant football coach; Jack and Bill Ruppersberger and Earl Uhler were lacrosse men; Baker Harward boxed; and Jack Wright and Jimmy Render played tennis. The boys fell heir to the new interfrater- nity championship, the hotly contested soft- ball title of ' 46, and the football cup which the club won by not dropping one game. Well-established in campus society and activity, they placed Boyd Waters as presi- dent of the Rossborough Club. Gene Edgett was nominated to the position of Junior Prom chairman, and Emory Harman held social chairmanships for both the Senior Class and Rossborough Club. Phi Delt placed a man on each of the main publications on campus. Gene Heil served on the Old Line, Ted Farrell, the Diamondback, and Bill Groome, the Tebeapin. Dick Betson at the ivories played for the frequent Univer- sity productions. Instituted this year was the George Barnes- Monk Mier Memorial Trophy for a fellow Phi, Tony Nardo, killed in Europe during the war. Each year a new trophy will be presented to the outstanding lineman on the Maryland football squad by the president of the frater- nity. This fine spirit being typical of the Phi Delt ' s, we look for their continued success in athletics and activities in the future. Members: John H. Bandiere, George W. Barnes, George A.

Their fervor was gratified when, at the end of fall rushing, the brothers found themselves with 25 new pledges. Under the leadership of Shelly Akers, president, and Gene Clark, vice-president, Theta Chi soared to an all-time high in all aspects. When football season made its appearance many Theta Chi ' s played on Maryland ' s first team. Among those donning head gear and shoulder pads were: Joe Drach, Gene Kinney, Ed Schwarz, and Harry Bonk. With the cele- bration of Homecoming came the news that the fraternity had won first prize for house decorations. The appointment of Hank Saylor to the post of Cadet Colonel added to the number of brothers in the R.O.T.C., as some had al- ready assumed various commands. The social trend also held its place among the brothers ' activities. January brought with it the traditional Winter Formal. This event was climaxed by the selection of the chapter ' s first ' Dream Girl. ' To Cede Clark went a gold cup proclaiming her coveted title of " Dream Girl of Theta Chi. " The Mothers ' Club of Theta Chi presented a bronze tablet to the house commemorating the members who died in the war. Through- out the year this club, supported and main- tained by the mothers of the actives and alums, donated various articles to the frater- nity house. The annual Founders ' Day Banquet was held in April, and also with the season came the Spring Formal which every brother looks forward to as the new year rolls around. Finally came the end of another year, and most of the brothers trekked off to Ocean City to drown all the after-effects of final exams and to renew their acquaintance with Jack- son ' s. So ended a happy and profitable year for the Theta Chi ' s, one which may be written up in the books as " gone but not forgotten.

ATO ' s from as far back as 1937, receding hair lines and all, put in their appearance. Interest in others ' war experience took the spotlight at first, but, feeling the loss of the Gold Star men with sincerest regret, fraternity life soon began to assume its true color. No one cut his first day ' s classes, and ' 46- ' 47 was under way. Bob Baker as president, Sam Allen as vice- president, George Lundquist, secretary, and Harry Elliott, treasurer, ran the internal affairs to the complete satisfaction of all. On October 18, ' Bossie ' Mishtowt and Bob DeBinder got rushing well under way with a bang-up Open House second to none on campus. During the two-week period various functions kept interest running high, not the least of which was the usual steak fry out at Bob Grigsby ' s in Landover. Rushing ended with the Pledge Banquet at Waldrop ' s in Hyattsville, which marked the ushering into pledgeship of 30 stalwarts. As the year drew on, Rog Cohill headed up the Student Government Association as presi- dent and was also tapped for ODK, the pre- vious members being ' Boots Conrad, Bob James, and Ray Hesse. Lengthening the list of presidents are both Bob Baker, prex for the Junior Class, and Dee Libbey, Freshman president. Bill Turner and Bob DeBinder, both Juniors, served, respectively, as Men ' s League representative and sergeant-at-arms, while Jack Clark filled the post of business manager for the Terrapin. Bill Hancock was secretary of the Ross- borough Club. From September to June, the ATO ' s nu- merous contributions have formed an integral part of campus life. Justified in their pride in achievement, they salute the year past with the same determination they await the next.

Most of the debris had been cleared away during the summer, but for the first month of school the boys found themselves minus light, heat, plumbing, and dining facilities. The sight of the KA ' s making their early morning trek up to the dorms (boys ' dorms, that is !) with their towels, soap, and razors was a familiar one during those first hectic thirty days. The Knights plunged into formal rushing with vigor, wet paint, and plaster notwith- standing. At the end of the rush season a total of 39 men were pledged, and KA settled down to a peacetime fraternal life. One of the real signs of a return to normalcy was the successful KA Minstrel Show reinstituted by Producer-Director ' Wimp ' Orpwood. This year Homecoming was a big affair for the KA ' s who, with the Kappa Kappa Gam- ma ' s, carried off the first prize in the float parade. Helping the student effort in building their school, John Cochrane was treasurer of the Rossborough Club; Bill MacDonald was editor of the Diamondback, and Chester ' Grassy ' Grassmuck, advertising manager. By the beginning of the year, errant Knights had indulged in the all-time favorite pastime of marriage. Among those were Pete Raines, Carlton Roxborough, Ralph Pennywitt, Ed Johnson, Johnny Mirceron, Joe Tuches, and Chester Grassmuck. Ben Wilson, a real 4 ' er from ' 42, returned to take over the prexy chair, while Johnny Cochrane was second-in- command. And so, after a busy and profitable year, the brothers said good-bye to those not returning and are already looking ahead to September when once again we will see them gather on the hill.

One of the leading fraternities on campus, Sigma Nu has had to struggle through rush seasons without a chapter house to entertain prospec- tive pledges. Recognizing this plight, a num- ber of the sororities offered their assistance and the use of their houses. The actives and pledges were guided through happy days by President Josh Miller, Vice-president Dale Trusheim, Treasurer Bob Bremmer, and Tom Devlin as Recorder. Sports activities, always one of Sigma Nu ' s strong points, claimed an unusual number of active members. Four football regulars who saw action throughout the season were Vic Turyn, Emile Fritz, Jim Kurz, and Roy Mor- tar. Vic Turyn went on playing basketball, and later in the spring took up baseball along with Jack Flynn, Kenny Bransdorf, and Paul Zetts, the manager. Varsity track needed Tom Devlin, Sterling Kehoe, Brian Fennell, and Jim Kurz, while Warren Hoffecker and Dick Hoddinott held their own at lacrosse. Active also in intramurals, Sigma Nu was runner-up in football, volleyball, and basketball. Organizations, too, were staffed by ' Snakes. ' Josh Miller, president of the Interfraternity Council, is also vice-president of the Ross- borough Club, while Dick Hoddinott is Sopho- more vice-president and Mike Zetts is presi- dent of the Riding Club. Chapter meetings during this past year have been held at a private home called simply ' Holbrook ' s ' . Because Harold Hol- brook, varsity wrestling manager, and his two brothers are ' Snakes, ' Mrs. Holbrook invited the boys to hold their meetings in her basement. The Pirate ' s Ball was the usual success and the Spring Formal was held with the George Washington Chapter in one of the downtown hotels. This group of campus leaders may feel rightly proud of the records they have made.

SI Phi Kappa Sipa ALPHA ZETA CHAPTER Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA in 1850 Established at MARYLAND in 1899 After lying dormant through the war years the Alpha Zeta Chapter of Phi Kappa Sigma is once more on the march towards estab- Ushing itself as one of the most prominent fraternities on the Maryland campus. Almost without exception the Phi Kap ' s who left their studies to enter the Armed Forces were back this last year. Supplemented by these members they swelled their ranks to 35 actives and 22 pledges. Many parties and dances were held after athletic contests in the chapter house. Home- coming was especially gay with many alumni back for the first time since before the war. With the acquisition and renovation of their temporary chapter house the Phi Kap ' s held an accelerated and successful social season, highlighted by the Skull and Bones Dance which traditionally provides the epitome of entertainment. Alpha Zeta has become increasingly extra- curricular minded. For the first time since the shift from Baltimore in ' 41 the chapter took upon itself the full schedule of Inter- fraternity sports. Partaking in football, basketball, softball, and bowling, made an extremely good showing for their initial at- tempt. As the chapter increases in size with the turning years, greater successes will be in order. Phi Kap has also make its contribu- tions to the varsity teams. Harry Gamble and Bob Tall filled the 145 and 155 pounds posi- tions while Bill Shehan and Tom Germack were managers. Victor MuUins and Bill Jameson managed the basketball and la- crosse teams respectively. Leading the fraternity scholastically were Walter Beam and Romeo Mansueti. Aside from teaching, Walt is engaged in the composi- tion of a college algebra textbook. Romeo, on the other hand, is considered one of the state ' s leading Herpetologists. Phi Kaps have dabbed into almost every type of social activity, having had representa- tion in numerous clubs and honoraries. A large number of the members were musically inclined and played a dominant part in musi- cal affairs. Walter Beam, an officer in Clef and Key, has played a major role in all the productions put on by that organization. Under the superb guidance of Henry Turner and his staff of able assistants Phi Kappa Sigma can be none other than optimistic for the coming year. Members: William Anderson, Walter Beam, James Beese, Robert Bm-ns, Richard Berger, Frank Bull, Gary Bradford, John CayoUinios, William Coleman, Bernard Dispasquale, Richard Deffert, Henry Fontana, Harry Gamble, Hugh Garmany, William Jameson, William Kirby, Louis Kraus, William Meares, John Milligan, Romeo Mansuetti, Victor Mullins, Robert Mont- gomery, James Murray, William McGowan, Frank Parsons, Lee Paid, William Shehan, William Scharpf, Harold Thomas, Lawrence Richter.

Even though last year was success- ful, they were still a relatively small group without a chapter house. The first semester found the majority of the brothers proudly residing under their own supervision in the remodeled and newly-furnished chapter house on Knox Road for the first time since 1942. As president, William Poling ably con- ducted the chapter business; Donald Gleasner served capably as vice-president; as sect.- editor Thos. Johnson handled all the paper work; and treasurer Jack Bell balanced the books. Wm. Steele held down the important post of House Manager, efficiently attending to numerous odd housing jobs. The chapter increased in September with the return of veterans Garrison Buchman, Wm. Hansbarger, Clark Hudson, Davis Kep- hart, Stanley Kihn, Wm. McCullagh, James Schaefle, and John Somers. Social chairman Jack Grathwol captained the events through the rush season, and planned open houses, smokers, dances, and parties for the rest of the year. Well remembered was the Sailors ' Ball, the first social function of ' 47. This is a traditional dance for all Delta Sigma Phi chap- ters. The reports were excellent — of the orchestra seated in a whale ' s mouth, the fire- place that had tentacles like an octopus, and of Robinson Crusoe ' s hut. The chapter had members on various ath- letic teams. Most publicized on theseathletes was red-headed PoUng who starred for his second season as right halfback; Walter Fehr was a tackle, and John Schreckengost re- turned to the gridiron after playing center last year. Stan ley Kihn took over his pre-war position on the track team, and Don Gleasner was Assistant Coach in basketball. Wm. Steele again was an Assistant Manager to the boxing team, and Miuray McCuUoch made the cheering squad. Members: Jack Bell, DeCorsey Bolden, Garrison Buschman, William Callaway, Joseph Dianda, Howard Donahue, Walter Fehr, Gorden Gaumitz, Donald Gleasner, Henry Grathwol, William Hansbarger, Richard Holzapfel, Clark Hudson, Thomas Johnson, Charles Kephart, Stanley Kihn, Theodore Krub, Andrew Meushaw, Edgar Moore, WiUiam Poling, Wil- liam Redd, Milton Sappe, James Schaefle, John Schaefle, John Schrecongost, John Somers, William Steele, Warren Wagner, Robert Wheeler.

SS Sigma Chi GAMMA CHI CHAPTER Founded at MIAMI UNIVERSITY in 1855 Established at MARYLAND in 1942 The Sigma Chi house at 4600 Norwich Road was returned to its rightful owners last Sep- tember after a three-year trip with a girls ' sorority. Also, after seeing war-time service with the Red Cross, ' Mom ' Reed returned to her former position as housemother. The two policemen, sometimes called House Managers, who drove the rest around were Page Chesser for the fall semester and Leon Etzler for this most recent one. John Maslin juggled the finances; Charles Marsteller kept the minutes; Seth Preece was vice-president, and Charlie Brock, president. Clark Shaughnessy, Maryland football men- tor and a brother Sigma Chi, had at least one Sig, Paul Massy, playing regular ball for him. Also connected with the football squad was Johnny Poole, head manager. On the hard- wood, pledge Johnny Edwards was one of Ship ' s starting five, and brother Jack Heise managed the basketball team for the second year in a row. The Sig bowling team won the championship in the Interfraternity Bowling Tournament, and Bob Gralley was Intra- mural Badminton champ. The Sig House was well represented in campus activities proudly sponsoring Charlie Brock as president of the Senior Class, ' Bull ' Heise as vice-president of the Student Govern- ment Association, and two honoraries, Latch Key and Pi Delta Epsilon, were prexied by two brothers — Jack Heise and Fred DeMarr, respectively. In the publication field brother Fred DeMarr spent his second year in the Terrapin office, this time as Photography Editor. Pledge Johnny Appel, treasurer of the Freshman Class, was in the Diamondback office with Bob Wiley, and Jim Zimmerman scribbled for the Old Line. As for the clubs, Fred DeMarr was President of the Canter- bury Club, Bob Scott the Art Club, Don Chaney the German Club, and ' Buz ' Hall the International Relations Club. With many pleasant memories behind them and many more yet to be born, the Sigma Chis close an eventful and prosperous year.

The return of many veterans led to the renewal of old acquaintances and fraternity fun. The tradi- tion of nightly bridge games was resumed, and it was found that Leffel and Fries still held the dubious honor of being the sharks of the group. The AGR ' s regained possession of their house on June 10, 1946, when the Pi Phi ' s regretfully moved out after two years of resi- dence. The few boys living there during the summer semester helped to get the house in condition for the brothers returning in the fall. Climaxing this session was a get-together held for the alumni and actives. Floyd Walder, the pledge master, ably schooled the pledges in the history and tradi- tion of the fraternity. The year ' s social events proved successful. A dance in conjunction with the Pi Beta Phi ' s and an old-fashioned barn dance highlighted the fall term. A dance given by the pledges for the actives popped up in January, and following on its heels was the Twin-sweater Hop. This year, as always, the Spring Formal was the big event of the second semester. Dave Jenkins, the social chairman, performed commendably in planning the parties which were enjoyed by everyone. Many of the brothers were active in the various agricultural organizations on campus. Dave Jenkins and Maguire Mattingly served on the Executive Council of the AgricultiU ' al Student Council. Ed Francisco was prexy of the Block and Bridle Club. Mattingly headed the Student Grange after Bill Taylor stepped down. Sam Slack, Bill Taylor, and Melvin McGaha were elected members of Alpha Zeta, National Agricultural Honorary, and Sam was president. Walt Bowling, Dave Jenkins, and Maguire Mattingly were mem- bers of the Varsity Rifle Team. Thus the AGR ' s wound up a happy and successful year and are looking forward to an even better one starting next September.

Lambda Chi Alpha is no exception. Temporarily housed in an apart- ment with accommodations for ten men, the fraternity felt an acute attack of growing pains resulting from the influx of those re- turning. However, cheerfully meeting the occasion, the members rejoiced in their gather- ing forces. Membership rose from two, in the fall of ' 45, to nearly 40 men before Christmas, 1946. Until the brothers can solve the build- ing and housing problems, they will maintain the apartment that has served as a temporary mecca to both members and alumni. Three transfer students were added to the growing fraternity ranks: Al Coleman and Frank Taylor from the Washington College Chapter, and brother Hope Marshall from Alabama. Fraternity participation in student activi- ties and campus organizations is evident, noting the positions held by diflferent mem- bers. This representation includes President ' Duke ' Kazlauskas as an active member of the Old Line staff and president of the Inter- fraternity Council. Brother Ralph Gies is the busy prex of the Sophomore Class and main- tains active participation in Student Govern- ment Association movements. Gies also served on the Dormitory Council. Brothers CUfford May and Harry Potts, respectively, represent the Freshman and Senior Classes on Men ' s League. Lambda Chi men did not limit their extra- curricular interests to organizations concern- ing the campus government. Harry Potts was active in the Newman Club, and Charlie Thompson was vice-president of the Art Club. Brother Barney Blach acted as Business Manager of the ' M ' Book, and penned his own weekly column in the Diamondback. Barney also was a weekly commentator on station WGAY. The present members have kept up the orig- inal standards of the fraternity, and besides a full calendar of social and activity obligations, they have taken time out to ' hit the books. ' Lambda Chi has come back to the Mary- land campus a stronger, more active, and spirited organization, determined to retain and increase the prestige it has gained in this short post-war period.

Three other men on the ODK membership roll were Don Everson, Joe Decker, and Chuck Tichenor. There were four brothers, Don Everson, Byrd Lucas, Ed Rider, and Will Schmidt in Pi Delta EpsUon, honorary journalism fraternity. For the second semester, Bob Crosland, former prexy, turned over the reins to Charlie Werner, his successor. Assisting Werner as prexy was vice-presi- dent Paul Mericle, while Don Fulton was kept busy writing up the minutes. Holding the purse strings for the brothers was Richard Grubb. Bright spot on the fall social calendar was the Homecoming buffet supper, which was attended by many Baltimore and D. C. alumni. Combined with Homecoming was the celebration of the chapter ' s third birth- day. A huge layer cake, topped by a frosted terrapin, decorated the table. During the evening, honorary pledgeships were granted to Ronald Reed, son of alumnus Ed Reed and to Julian Cox, son of faculty advisor Carrol Cox. In athletic circles, SAE was represented by Bob Crosland and Dick Johnson on the varsity eleven. For his outstanding playing at Maryland during the past season, Cros- land was named to the Washington, D. C, All-CoUege Team. Bob Marshek, sports manager of the chapter, held the 165-pound spot on the varsity wrestling squad, while Gordon Willard fought heavyweight. Broth- ers Chuck Tichenor and Ralph Holmes bat- tered their way to first place in the Intra- mural Doubles Tennis Tournaments. ' Dusty ' Durst as captain led the newly-organized Pershing Rifles. Maintaining its reputation for campus leadership, SAE gave Omicron Delta Kappa Members: David Abercrombie, Stephen Anarino, Walter Bauman, Arthur Binkley, Robert Black, Wil- liam Blalock, Gilbert Bohn, Donald Buck, Laird Chase, Donald Clem, Harry Cobey, Stephen Coffey, Carl Crone, Robert Crosland, John Crothers, William Downs, Harry Day, Harold Dm-st, Joseph Decker, Michael Flaherty, William Ehrmantraut, Donald Everson, Donald Fulton, James Graham, Alton Geiger, Norman Grabner, Richard Grubb, Robert Herr, John Hess, Harry Hobbs, Herbert Hodge, Ralph Holmes, Clyde Houle, Lynn Johnson, Richard Johnston, James Kearney, Russell Levering, John Libby, Alexander Lipske, Byrd Lucas, Raymond Lund, William Madison, Robert Marcheck, Paul Mericle, Wayne Marshall, James Moschel, Paul Muller, Wharton Nichols, Martin O ' Connor, Willard Parsons, George Proudley, William Pnritt, Warren Redd, Bernard Rages, Marion Rohr- baugh, Exlward Rider, Robert Schiedel, William Schmid, Wilson Schmidt, Sturge Sobin, Charles Tiche- nor, James Wade, William Wampler, Arthur Weidner, Charles Werner, Gordon Willard, Louis Zekial.

This job proved to be difficult, as their house had previously been sold. Nevertheless, the problem was soon solved when several soror- ities invited the Phi Sig ' s to conduct rush functions at their houses. With this task be- hind them and their seventeen new pledges for backing, they looked forward to a success- ful season. The social calendar of the Phi Sig ' s was well filled. Diu-ing the weeks before Home- coming, they combined with Alpha Xi Delta to work on a float. It represented the slogan Tt ' s an Old, Old, Line. ' The biggest event of the season was the Christmas Ball, given in conjimction with Epsilon Triton Chapter at American Univer- sity and Lambda Chapter at George Wash- ington University. This dance was held in the Burgundy Room of the Wardman Park Hotel and proved so successful that the brothers desire to establish it as a permanent tradition. The chapter is now hoping to find a new house in which to conduct its rushing and social functions. Last semester they could be compared to gypsies, wandering from one house to another in an effort to find some suitable meeting place. The gatherings have been held in various rooms on campus, and their social functions in local sorority houses or in the nearby houses of other Phi Sig Chapters. The first election of officers this year found Walter Allen president. He was ably assisted by the vice-president, Bob Wright. Jotting down the minutes for each meeting and carry- ing on the fraternity ' s correspondence, we see Giles Chapin, the Phi Sig ' s secretary. Charlie Beaumont, the treasurer, took care of the budget, while Bill Donnelly was the sentinel. The Eta Chapter has had many members who were prominent on campus and are re- membered as we leaf through old Terrapins and dust off trophies from previous years. Their awards have included all sports; foot- ball, baseball, and ping-pong. In addition, the Phi Sig ' s have won many awards for scholastic achievement. The brothers, having made a successful comeback on campus after the years of lax, are looking forward hopefully to a bigger, better, and brighter future. Members: Walter Allen, Dick Barr, Charlie Beaumont, Dick Brownell, Giles Chapin, Charlie Crouch, Don Deitrick, Bill Donnelly, Paul De Tamble, Howard Gossage, Bill Hutchinson, Chuck Jones, Wally Mar- shall, August Noack, Willis Nolan, Roy Skipton, John Sysak, Ned Thomas, Dick Wainwright, Robert Wright.

Skipton. 88 Tan Kappa Epsilon BETA BETA CHAPTER Founded at ILLINOIS WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY in 1899 Established at MARYLAND in 1947 In 1941, Alpha Lambda Tau had just begun to chmb the ladder to successful organization. It had a big white house on the hill overflow- ing with potential campus leaders and future BMOC ' s from ' way back. Prosperity seemed to smile freely upon them. Came the war, and one by one the men of ALT left for the services. By 1944, there were not enough men left to continue the upkeep of the chapter house; consequently it was released. The autumn of 1946 was a homecoming; in truth it was for many of our men. Service uniforms were exchanged willingly for civilian garb as the ' old ' fellows came back. The chapter became active under the leadership of president Bob Little, ably supported by 12 undergraduate and three active faculty mem- bers. The house was well represented in campus and social activities by brothers Dan Neviaser, Michael Langello, and Charles White, while brother Richard Serra, as treas- urer, handled the fraternity ' s financial obliga- tions thus keeping the wheels of progress well greased. The fall Interfraternity Bowling Tournament provided an opportunity for the ALT ' s to prove their strength and interest through active participation in the tourna- ment. Brothers Little, Bridgeman, Langello, White, Serra, and Neviaser supplied the muscles for their bowling team. ALT alumni and old friends held a reunion in Baltimore following the Washington and Lee game. The members say it was a great celebration, a stag party to be well remem- bered After the National Convention of ALT held in the fall, the chapter decided that an affilia- tion with a national fraternity which was so entirely southern was too much like being a flock of lost sheep which had strayed from home. Since the advantages of belonging to the flock were negligible, the chapter voted to withdraw from ALT. Once again the chapter that had originally begun as lona Nu Delta, one of the oldest locals on campus, decided to go national. After extensive investigation it petitioned for admittance into Tau Epsilon, and was ac- cepted in January. February was its official installation as the Beta Beta Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon. Many of the alumni re- turned to be initiated. The installation cere- monies were conducted by Admiral R. O. Williams, the National President of TKE, and an installation team of ' Tekes ' from G. W. and U. of P. A spirited and energetic under- graduate body, a loyal faculty group, and a strengthened national organization promise a prosperous future. Members: Louis Abayo, Richard Bangam, Bruce Bridgeman, Michel Langello, Robert Little, Jr., Daniel Neviaser, David Pohmer, George Riesser, Richard Serra, Merrick Steward, Charles White, Richard Wood. 89 Tan Epsilon Phi TAU BETA CHAPTER Founded at COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY in 1910 Established at MARYLAND in 1925 Adding to the already bulging enrollment to the September session of school came the TEP veterans of World War II. Together with the non-veterans, they reassembled under the roof that has housed TEP men for over two decades. Solly Goodman, voted into the position of rush chairman, labored furiously during the formal rushing period. His efforts were re- warded handsomely by the pledging of 30 men, the largest group ever to pledge Tau Beta Chapter in its history. Among the neophytes were such outstanding men as Larry Holofcener, director of the Clef and Key Varsity Show, Dick Dorf , member of the football squad, Al Cohen, Diamondback staff, Mai Peck, manager of the basketball team, and Irv Udorff, producer of the Vet Club Show. With fine cooperation from brothers Lew Ruttenberg and Charlie Kramer, War- den Goodman led his future inductees through a well-planned and active pledge period from October to March. The induction was held at the annual Jubilee in the Mayflower Hotel in Washington and was witnessed by the largest number of undergraduates and alumni ever to attend the Jubilee. During the year Sid Sterman was elected to the presidency of the Men ' s League; he also held down a position on the boxing team. ' Foggy ' Nable took over the managerial reins of the track team, which included on its roster such luminaries as Herb White and Bob Lewis. In intramural sports, TEP achieved an enviable record. Billy Lewis can point with pride to his teams which earned prominent places among the leaders in foot- ball, volleyball, basketball, and softbaU. Familiar memories include the float at Home- coming, Frank Milhauser ' s car. Art Epstein ' s keeping the boys in line. Lew Ruttenberg, the master of a thousand experiences, old ' 96 Juddy Klein, Hoffman ' s familiar cry of " Let ' s go to Bowie, " the Spring Formal, Editor Morganstein ' s ' Crier, ' Bob Eichberg, ' King of the Vets, ' the bridge game at Dave Rolnik ' s home, and last but not least, the Jubilee.

Armed with paint brushes, water buckets, cloths, soaps and an electric floor scraper that blew fuses with somewhat disconcerting regularity, the boys attacked the job with gusto. Even the members recently discharged from the service, who had vowed that their first civilian months would be entirely workless, were present to lend needed hands. Among the newly-returned veterans were Merhle Fox, Paul Pumpian, Norman Sherry, Melvin Udel, Harold Reiss, and Irv Lewis. The house was completely finished, top to bottom, in time for Sigma Alpha Mu ' s first rush smoker. More than fifty guests attended, all of whom were entertained by nostalgic alumni and plied with mouth-watering south- ern fried chicken. Eleven men were ultimately invited to pledge the fraternity. Socially, Sigma Alpha Mu enjoyed a suc- cessful year. In addition to a number of open house functions and dances, the fraternity celebrated its thirteenth birthday on the Maryland campus with a formal dinner dance in Baltimore on December 14. The success of the affair fostered a proposal by Prior Gordon Salganik to make the birthday cele- bration an annual event. During Homecoming week-end, Sigma Alpha Mu made an entry in the contest of floats. The boys worked particularly hard on a tremendous metal star, intending it to be the outstanding feature on the float. A few minutes before the float was driven into the stadium, a telephone wire sheared off the top point of the star. Woe filled their hopeful hearts as they viewed the damage. Neverthe- less, SAM received honorable mention, which proved something about the fruits of honest labor. The SAM ' s placed a few fingers in campus pies as Phil Glazer took over the jobs of Busi- ness Manager of the Diamondback and Presi- dent of Hillel. Norm Katz was Sports Editor of the Diamondback and Vice-president of Men ' s League. Bill Sandy ' s column in the Diamondback siu-veyed campus sports. President Gordon Salaganik turned over the gavel to Sam Wohl for the second semes- ter. Vice-president and Treasurer Martin Morrison was succeeded by Elliot Lapin, while Herbert Jeffers followed Sam Wohl as Secretary. Members: Rolf Bercowitz, Albert Bernstein, Robert Block, Donald Caplan, Donald Cohen, Melvin Cohen, Bernard Dackman, Merhle Fox, Donald Frank, Phillip Glazer, Herbert Jeffers, Ellis Kadison, Norman Katz, Robert Levin, Gilbert Levine, William Leizman, Irvin Lewis, Richard London, Max Millstone, Martin Mor- rison, Paul Pumpian, Harold Reiss, Howard Rymland, Gordon Salganik, Edward Schrier, S.

Pledges: Robert Berkow, Morton Blank, Lee Brash, Lawrence Broad, Frank Cahn, Paul Dorf, Frankline Goldstein, Irvin Gomprecht, Gerald Katz, Ralph May, William Sandy, Morton Shapiro, Bernard Shur. 41 Alpha Epsilon Pi DELTA DEUTERON CHAPTER Founded at NEW YORK UNIVERSITY in 1913 Established at MARYLAND in 1941 The 1946-47 school year found a new fra- ternity working its way into campus activities. The Delta Deuteron Chapter of AEPi began its life with a small group of fourteen men and leaped to the total of thirty-two active members by the opening of the second semes- ter. The eighteen pledges were initiated on January 11 at Baltimore ' s Sheraton Belvedere Hotel. The initiation ceremony was followed by a formal dinner and dance. The pledge committee assisted Bucky Margolis in direct- ing this new group. Harry Fradin, former president of AEPi, in February turned over the gavel to Paul Sut- tleman. The vice-president was Stanley Kramer, Morris Levine took over the secre- tary ' s position, and Irving Warsinger became treasurer Earl Foreman did a fine job of looking after the fraternity ' s future by being rush chairman. Showing their liking for the outdoor life and the open fire, the frat sponsored several weiner roasts. Also on the informal side were the " Sloppy Joe Dances. " The climax of the club ' s social functions was a formal dance. Intramural sports were an important part of the year ' s activities. The football team offered strong opposition, while the volley- ball team was successful in winning the Fra- ternity Tournament. The AEPi basketball team, though eliminated in the tournament, gave a good account of itself. Socials and athletics did not occupy all the AEPi time. Under the leadership of Sam Auerhan, the Alpha Epsilon Pi Players pre- sented the " Thespian ' s Delight " before a large crowd at the Hillel Foundation in a U. J. A. program. Jerry Gaine, Milt Socolar and Earl Foreman along with Sam Auerhan kept the audience well entertained. Glen Klaven, our transfer student from Hopkins, wrote the lyrics for the Vet Show, " Dream Boy, " and Jerry Gaine played the drums in the same show. Sam Auerhan turned in another sparkling performance in the year ' s Variety Show. A Conclave of AEPi chapters of the Mid- dle Atlantic area was held in Baltimore under the co-sponsorship of the Maryland and Hop- kins chapters. The Conclave was a week-end affair in May with a formal dance as the high- light. Members: Samuel Auerhan, Morton Cohen, Mervin Coblenzer, Elliott Curtis, Earl Foreman, Harry Fradin, Nathan Ingber, Stanley Kramer, Morris Levine, Isa- dore Margolis, Herbert Moses, Malcolm Rabinowich, Herbert Sohmer, Paul Suttleman, Irving Warsinger. Pledges: Yale Aarons, Stanley Billian, Alvin Blaker, Carl Butler, Martin Caplin, Jerome Cohen, David Kornblatt, Nathan Fradin, Jerome Gaine, Harvey Greenberg, Alvin Greenfield, Sidney Katz, Robert Katz, Barton Land, Harold Paris, Arnold Rubenstein, Milton Socolar, Richard Wasserman. 42 Kappa Kappa Gamina GAMMA PSI CHAPTER Founded at MONMOUTH COLLEGE in 1870 Established at MARYLAND in 1929 The Kappa ' s greeted 1946 with a crowded calendar of social and scholastic activities, managing, however, to leave some time for the usual hands of bridge. Following a successful rushing season, the Kappa ' s gave a tea to welcome a chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta to the Maryland campus. Hospitality continued in the form of exchange dinners with other Greeks, and after-dinner coffees for fraternities and sororities. The spring season was highlighted by the pledge dance and the traditional ' Spinster Skip. ' The whole campus had great anticipation for this year ' s homecoming, the biggest post- war Homecoming Maryland has seen. Kappa proudly won triple honors: Sally Dunington was chosen Homecoming Queen; Kappa and KA jointly took first place in the float contest with a life-sized train tracking down that ' old line ' ; and Kappa won placement in the house decorations. Campus activities found the Kappa ' s much at home in publications. Nancy Simmons was Associate Editor of the Terrapin; Pat Piper was Advertising Manager and Sally Morgan Women ' s Sports Editor of the Diamondback. Betty Gatch was Women ' s Editor and Dee Speed Managing Editor of the Old Line. As class officers, Louise Stephenson was secretary of the Junior Class; Virginia Rustin, historian of the Sophomore Class; and Sally Morgan secretary of Women ' s League. Jackie Morley and Betty Jean Swain were elected to the cheering squad. Lenore Throckmorton was chosen Vet ' s Queen. Amy Clark was chair- man of the Bridge Tournament. Of the win- ners, playing special set hands, those with the highest scores were eligible for the National Tournament. Poe Ewell, Betty Gatch, Sally Morgan, Patty Piper, Nancy Simmons, Dee Speed, and Louise Stephenson were initiated into Pi Delta Epsilon, journalistic honorary. Louise was elected treasurer of the organiza- tion. Genie Simmons, a member of Mortar Board, was the president during 1946. To top this honor, the highest that a woman may obtain on the Maryland campus. Genie was also initiated into Omicron Nu.

The fun and exhausting pace of fall rushing resulted in the gathering of 24 new pledges. Immediately following rushing, the social merry-go-round got under way with an open house dance crowding the house to the bulg- ing point. After this came an exchange dinner with Phi Delta Theta and desserts for Theta Chi and Phi Sigma Kappa. In October, the girls welcomed a new house- mother, Mrs. Howell Bedell of New York, and presented her to the campus at a tea. The Homecoming buffet dinner was the most successful get-together the chapter had ever had. Crowds of alums filled the house and the present members gave the ' Old Timers ' something to talk about by carrying off third place in the float parade, and second place with its ' Maryland Mortuary ' house decorations. December found the Alpha Xi ' s honoring their National President, Mrs. Beverly Robin- son, with a tea, at which time they presented her to the campus. Later in the month the formal Christmas dance stole the spotlight of the semester ' s social events. Up on the hill ' Weetie ' Stitley served as President of Women ' s League and as a mem- ber of the S. G. A. Sallee Davis was President of the Dance Club, while sister Millicent Freschi was treasurer. Marilyn Cannon was Vice-president of the Presbyterian Club, and Eleanor Moore was Treasurer and Province Representative for the Newman Club. ' Weetie ' was Mortar Board ' s Treasurer, and Betsy Lipp was minute-taker and purse-holder for Alpha Kappa Delta, sociology honorary. In the journalistic world, Jane Musgrove and Peggy Chrisman were winners in Mademoiselle ' s college-board contest. Peggy also acted as College Editor for the students ' page in the Washington Times-Herald. Beta Eta Chapter helped to support Na- tional ' s adopted village of Noordwyk, Hol- land, by purchasing food, medical supplies, and clothing.

' The Tri Delt ' s queen of the year is attrac- tive Betty Heyser, who was crowned Miss Rossborough of 1946. Betty had previously won the title of Miss Terrapin in 1945. Sylvia Simmons placed third in the annual contest for the queen of the sorority pledge classes. Tri Delt has always been active in campus activities, and this past year was no exception. Jean Roby was elected President of the Foot- light Club and Vice-president of Mortar Board; Jane Grigsby revived the Psychology Club, increasing its membership through her own interest and work; Weems Hawkins was News Editor and Kitty Blake was Society Editor of the Diamondback. For her out- standing work in publications, Weems was tapped for Pi Delta Epsilon, while Jean Eichel- berger and Marvel Maxwell were tapped for Omicron Nu, the home economics honorary. The Tri Delt ' s had eight vivacious and attractive members on the cheerleading squad. Mary Zimmerii was chosen as the head cheer- leader and the other supportive seven were: Page Watson, former head cheerleader, Betty Heyser, Betty Sue Train, Liz Simpson, Pat Murphy, Bert Williams, and Cede Clark. The Tri Delt calendar was crowded, but gaily marked, with both social and cultural festivities : the annual Founder ' s Day Banquet at the 2400 Club; the well-staged Interfra- temity Sing, which Tri-Delt sponsors each year; friendly chapter buffet dinners, parties, and get-togethers for active and pledges; after- dinner coffees and exchange dinners, to further Greek fellowship; holiday celebrations such as Homecoming and their annual festive Pine Party at Christmas; faculty dinners, en- lightening cultvu al meetings; open-house par- ties or record dances after the football games; and the breathtakingly impressive spring formal which is the grand finale of the school year. Each year the chapter looks forward to the estabhshment of higher goals and broader success.

" The reason for this exuber- ance was that during the summer ' s absence the first floor had been completely redeco- rated in California golds, greens, and reds. The members, with unknown vigor, attacked their own rooms, each attempting to match the warm effect that had been produced on the floor below. The year 1946 seemed to overshadow the previous years, for it vaunted AOPi ' s Golden Anniversary. In honor of the occasion a banquet, attended by the actives and mem- bers, was held at the house by the Wash- ington Alumnae Association. Highlighting the event was a pageant portraying the fifty years of the sorority ' s existence. The most feted AOPi of the season was Norma Curtiss who captured the coveted title of ' Miss Prince George ' s County, ' marking the 250th anniversary of the county. This event was colored with dances, dinners, and parties over which Norma reigned with gra- cious hand. In the administrative department Jean Soden oflBciated as president, Phyllis Sell as vice-president, Rosemarie Bridges as secre- tary, Barbara Price as treasurer, and Marty Foster as the corresponding secretary. Jane Nock occupied the position of social chairman and under her direction the sorority spon- sored its annual open house ' Red and White Ball ' in the spring. On campus the AOPi ' s were found active in both student and class government. Phyllis Sell served as Treasurer of the S.G.A., as well as Chairman of the Homecoming cele- bration; Mildred Mooney was Historian of the Junior Class; Barbara Schneider held the position of secretary of the Sophomore Class; Peggy O ' Connor and Marga ret Showell fell in line as Historian and Women ' s League Representative, respectively. Joanne Ryan was Vice-president of the Cosmopolitan Club; Marty Foster, Secretary of the Red Cross; Shirley Kjiibb, Secretary of the Wesley an Club, and Jean McKeown and Barbara Oster- mayer officiated in the Newman Club. The sorority looks back on a highly successful year and hopes to continue its work in the future, strengthened by an abundant pledge class.

Returning the house to its right- ful owners, the Sigma Kappa ' s moved into their own house near the dining hall and have lived there since February, 1946. The many popular social functions given by the sorority testify to the good use which the girls made of their attractive house. Starting out the school year right with an open house tea, the sorority continued through- out the year to hold informal affairs such as weiner roasts, informal teas, and dances. The annual Christmas Formal, held at the Statler with Sigma Kappa sisters from George Wash- ington, proved to be a huge success. Also on the Sigma K ' s social calendar was an exchange dinner with the Delta Sig ' s. The girls were entertained at an informal dance by their brother fraternity. Phi Kappa Sigma. Along came Founder ' s Day, which was celebrated by the Maryland and Washington chapters with a banquet in Washington. In spite of all the social affairs, classes, and dates, the girls still managed to find time to play a game of bridge or make an addition to their newest venture in knitting. The SK ' s took an active part in all campus activities and made many outstanding achieve- ments this year. Pat Bennington holds the office of Social Chairman of the Senior Class and Vice-president of Pan-Hellenic Council. Susan Weakley was elected Vice-president of the Senior Class, while Helen MacMillan was Vice-president of the Social Dance Club; Laura Petrone held the same oflSce in the Canterbury Club. Rose Ann Collier was tapped by Alpha Lambda Delta, freshman honorary, while Elaine Craley was initiated into Sigma Alpha Omicron, bacteriology honor- ary. Sigma Kappa ' s who contributed to the Old Line were Marilyn Bessig, Rose Ann Collier, and Joan Michel. The music depart- ment was taken over by Evelyn Brewer, Marilyn Bessig, and Phyllis Ann Jones, who were in Women ' s Chorus. All in all, the Sigma Kappa ' s can look back upon the school year of ' 46- ' 47 as being a very satisfactory one, and are already hoping for and expecting bigger things in ' 47- ' 48.

Starting the social season, the chapter gave a formal tea honoring their housemother. Successive to this affair was the Red Sock Dance, a novel party where the guests each removed their shoes and danced the rest of the evening in their red stocking feet. Not to be outdone by the campus-wide Home- coming festivities, after the game Beta Phi held an informal dinner dance at the chapter house for alumnae and friends. It was heart- warming to see all the ' Old Timers, ' and to show them the new improvements made around the house. The annual pledge dance highlighted the pre-Xmas season. While the orchestra played the Sweetheart Song as back- ground music, the pledges stepped through a huge diamond-shaped pin to meet their dates waiting on the other side. The New Year found several sister ADPi ' s taking the final step of matrimony. Follow- ing the ceremony, bride Mary Lou Thompson held her wedding reception in the chapter house; the lovely decorations chosen for this occasion showed ofiF the house to good ad- vantage. Spring found them holding a joint celebra- tion of Founder ' s Day with Alpha Phi Chap- ter at George Washington University, at which both the Washington and Baltimore alums actively participated. The list of those active in organizations in- cluded Pat Schertz in Omicron Nu, Betty Ann Gordy, Treasurer of SAO, Betty Powers, Historian of the Sophomore Class, and Jean Dye, a member of the Dance Club ' s Execu- tive Council. The Riding Club officers were as follows: Ann Fennessey, President, Sally Puryear, Secretary, and Betty Wilson, Treas- urer. Nancy Daugherty contributed to Clef and Key, while Barbara Glatian worked on the Diamondback. As for officers of ADPi, President Barbara Skinner received able assis- tance from Vice-president Hazel Slifer, Secre- tary Pat Patton, and Treasurer Ann Fen- nessey. Throughout the year Beta Phi Chapter has kept busy with their program of after-dinner coffees, dances, and the annual Parents ' Tea. The Spring Formal was the ' finis ' to an event- ful year.

Jean Chickering, Terry Speaker, and Claudia De LaVergne took over the jobs of Editor-in-Chief, Copy Editor and Circulation Manager, respectively, of the 1947 Terrapin. Carol Haase was chosen Business Manager of the Diamondback. Active also was Mary Harry Davis, Corre- sponding Secretary of Clef and Key, and Assistant Directo r of its winter show. Marion Graham acted as Secretary of the Canterbury Club and Carol Haase as President of the Wesley Club. Portia Bowers was elected Secretary of Student Government Associa- tion, and the Junior Class chose Terry Speaker as Treasurer. High honors were bestowed upon Jean Chickering and Carol Haase, both being tapped for Pi Delta Epsilon, while Jean Tryon was tapped for Omicron Nu. Mary Harry Davis, Women ' s League Representa- tive from the Senior Class, distinguished her- self by winning a trip to the National 4H Convention in Chicago. A tea was given in the chapter house for the Kappa Delta Chapters from American and George Wash- ington Universities. Dickey Ashley served as Treasurer of the Home Ec. Club, Dot Mullan as Recorder of W. R. A., and Mary Bolgiano contributed diligently in the work of the Junior Prom Committee. Betty Banks was Secretary of the Freshman Class, and Dufify Conant acted as Historian of the Sophomore Cl s. The K. D. bowling team won the inter-sorority title for the third year in succession. In the fall, gavel-pounding Jane Hershey was assisted by the then Vice-president Jean Chickering, and by Dorothy Mullan, Vice- president during the springs emester. Dickey Ashley managed the secretarial position and Anne Gadd served as Treasurer. The necessary spice of social activity was introduced at intervals throughout the year. The Black and White Ball was given early in January by the actives in honor of their new little sisters. A busy year is past and Kappa Delta looks ahead to the fall when once again the whirl of activities will begin.

Their func- tions were held at the AGR house due to the fact that their new house on the hill was only partially completed. This situation caused confusion, not only among the Pi Phi ' s, but also among AGR ' s, who were somewhat sur- prised to find girls running around downstairs at all hours armed with scissors, glue, paper, and delicate favors in preparation for a rush party. In spite of the bewildering rushing conditions, the season was extremely success- ful, for 18 future Arrow girls were added to the fold. The chapter ' s social season began with a highly successful Winter Formal, held at the Roger Smith Hotel in Washington, and follow- ing closely on its heels was a Christmas party given by the pledges for the actives. Take one sorority group, subtract one sorority house, and the result is a very dis- organized state of affairs. However, the Pi Phi ' s managed to maintain their unity, as over half of the chapter lived in the basement of Margaret Brent until their house was ready. Under the leadership of June Danglade the girls went out for activities in a big way. Doris Carl headed the Community Chest drive and spurred the chapter to placing second in contributions to the campaign. Jackie Hastings, a veteran performer of the Foothght Club, took the lead in " The Little Foxes " ; Ethel Jongeneel was Editor of the Diamondback; Barton Hall held the job of Vice-president of Women ' s Chorus; Claudia Shirley represented the chapter in Sigma Alpha Omicron, and Marjorie Fredericks in Sigma Tau Epsilon. ' Freddie ' also reigned as Secretary of W.R.A. Janice Garrott was Vice-president of Women ' s League. With the completion of their house, after the bewildering uproar of moving had sub- sided, came a huge housewarming, and later on, a dance introducing the pledges to the campus. These done, the Pi Phi ' s found the end of the spring semester just around the corner and so closed the books, making the school year of ' 46- ' 47 past history. Members: Priscilla Alden, Nettajo Borders, Marjorie Boswell, Yvonne Britt, Amy Cantwell, Doris Carl, Jean Maria Cory, June Dunglede, Ruth Drake, Eliza- beth Eppley, Betty Faupel, Marcia Foster, Sally Foster, Marjorie Frederick, Janice Garrott, Barton Hall, Jacqueline Hastings, Sally Huebl, Ethyl Jonge- neel, Betty Langenfelder, Patricia Madigan, Patricia McKee, Anne Newby, Peggy Randall, Jean Reynolds, Betty Rush, Claudia Shirley, Carolyn Smith, Janice Trimmer, Page Waite, Betty Windsor, Jean Zahrendt.

Under the able guidance of Louisa White, the sorority maintained its excellent position both as a chapter and as a group of individuals. Highlights of the year for the chapter were numerous. Pat Taylor made a lovely Pledge Queen, to the delight of her sisters. The new Gamma Phi housemother, Mrs. Edna B. Brown, was presented to the campus with a tea in October. The annual Mother-Daughter Banquet brought all the girls with their mothers in tow to the 400 Club, where the luncheon was held. To top ofif all this, the pledges were presented at the fall Pledge Dance which was held in the home of Irene Sprung in Chevy Chase. When it came to activities, the Gamma Phi ' s were anything but slow. Louisa White headed W.R.A., was Secretary of Sigma Tau Epsilon, Secretary of the Senior Class, and a member of Mortar Board. In addition to all this, she served as President of the sorority — all of which gave her excellent claim to the title of B.G.O.C. Ginny Stewart was Ex- change Editor of the Diamondback; Betty Compton kept the Newman Club in the spot- light as Publicity Chairman ; Millie Anderson, Janet Huddle, and Mary Dyer were in Sigma Alpha Omicron. Ginny Stewart attended Pi Delta Epsilon m eetings, while membership in Sigma Tau Epsilon included Marion Benson, Millie Burton, and Louisa White. The chapter was represented in Mortar Board by Randy Randall as well as by busy Sister Louisa. Also attending W.R.A. meetings were Jas Arm- strong, as Membership Chairman; Milhe Burton as Badminton Chairman, Marian Benson as Volleyball Chairman, and Marilyn Sacks as Corresponding Secretary. Throughout the entire year, the Gamma Phi ' s looked forward to Monday evenings when all-chapter buffet suppers provided a wonderful chance to catch up on socializing over a deck of cards or knitting needles. In this way the sisters made the ties of Gamma Phi Beta even more dear. Members: Barbara Adamson, Mildred Anderson, Jasmine Armstrong, Mildred Beck, Margaret Becker, Marion Benson, Alice Bowman, Jane Blizzard, Joanne Bramhall, Patt Browning, Mildred Burton, Catherine Compton, Dorothy Dinsmore, Mary Dyer, Ellen Hall, Gloria Heller, Eleanor Hoppe, Janet Huddle, Joy Hull, Marianne Karlowa, Alice Measell, Mary M.

Forrest Woods. 61 Eappa ilpha Theta KA0 GAMMA MU CHAPTER Founded at DePAUW UNIVERSITY in 1870 Established at MARYLAND in 1946 Maryland ' s newest sorority made its ap- pearance on campus during formal rushing before the fall semester began. Local alumnae with Jean Ford, a graduate student from Penn State, and Sally Reed, a Sophomore transfer from Randolph-Macon, worked hard to give two parties and a tea. At the end of rushing, they were rewarded by the addition of eight new pledges who wore the black and gold pledge ribbons of Kappa Alpha Theta. Unofficial headquarters were set up in the recreation room of Anne Arundel dorm, and Jean had the job of " housemothering " the seven pledges living there, as well as the other group of thirty-odd girls who were temporarily quartered there awaiting the completion of Dorm X. Theta launched itself vigorously during in- formal rushing by pledging eight more girls, thus swelling the ranks to nineteen. Without a house or any material assets, the pledges set out enthusiastically to estabhsh Theta on campus. They attended social func- tions such as after dinner cofifees at Kappa and A DPi. Meetings were held in the Dean of Women ' s lounge and EUie Stanley was elected Secretary of the group, while Bettye Smith held the office of Treasurer. Plans were made to put a president in office in January, Jean in the meantime, serving as official repre- sentative and pledge mistress. In November the pledges attended a tea honoring the newly-installed sister chapter at George Washington University. This was also the Homecoming weekend, and there was a mad dash to enter a float in the parade. Sunday of that same week, all the Theta ' s attended the Episcopal Church in College Park, and after the services they threw a hay- ride to entertain the boys who had worked with them so diligently on the float. Mrs. Higbie, the National Extension Chair- man, and Mrs. Wilson, District President, paid a visit to the sorority in November, bear- ing the best news of the year — that Gamma Mu Chapter would be installed at the District Convention in Atlantic City in February. The pledges were spurred to greater efforts in order to make their grades and be eUgible for charter membership. Plans for a dance were postponed until after the excitement of installation and until after Theta became more than a pledge class, a new chapter added to the chain of sixty-nine in the United States and Canada. The kite soared high with spirit and sisterhood typical of the ' oldest Greek letter fraternity known among women. Members: Mary Dow, Jean Ford, Sally Reed. Pledges: Marilyn Alden, Bettye Bell, Martha Jean Crawford, Caryl Fessler, Patricia Furman, Mary Louise Herrmann, Barbara Hudson, Ellen Janda, LaRue Lambson, Eleanor Morris, Joan Morrison, Vir- ginia Morse, Jean Perdue, Martha Sanders, Bettye Smith, Mary Ellen Stanley. 52 Delta Gamma BETA SIGMA CHAPTER Founded at OXFORD INSTITUTE in 1874 Established at MARYLAND in 1945 The Anchor girls, with Bunny Holland as Captain, have piloted the DG Ship through its second year on campus. Tripling the num- ber of active members, the chapter now totals 60 girls. Holding its place of honor in the Delta Gam house is the silver cup won by the Dee Gees when they first participated in the annual Interfraternity Sing and walked away with top honors. Three charter members starred in the romance department for the year. Jo Hoff- meister married Bob Perdew, Maria Bulani is engaged to Frank Bonis, ATO from MIT, and Effie Ingalls is wearing Jim Graham ' s SAE pin. The social calendar for the Delta Gam ' s featured the annual Pledge Dance at the Washington Aviation Covmtry Club, the hay- ride to Great Falls, and the Christmas Party given for the actives by the pledge class. Stepping from war work into peacetime rehabiUtation, the Delta Gamma ' s have been active in the Red Cross Veteran Shows, with Marie Bulani, EUie Higgons, Jackie Loar, Betty Franciscus, and Lovie Hudson partici- pating. The campus extra-curricular activi- ties were not neglected by the DG chapter. EUie Higgons was Treasurer of the Sophomore Class and the Canterbury Club. Jean Patter- son was Social Chairman of the Sophomore Class; Pat Patterson, Advertising Manager of the Old Line; Emily Hamond, Treasvu er of the Sociology Club. Dot Dansberger was elected to membership in Sigma Alpha Omi- cron, bacteriology honorary, and Emily Hamon became a member of Alpha Kappa Delta, sociology honorary. Delta Gam chose Maria Bulani as its Vice- president, Jane Schreiber for Secretary, and Dorothy Dansberger was the Treasurer. In the face of widespread criticism of fra- ternities and sororities, and feeling the need for greater Greek unity. Delta Gamma spon- sored a Pan-Hellenia Panel Discussion early in the fall. This was attended by representa- tives from all sororities on campus. Each representative gave a brief history of her group, its national achievements and policies, and points stressed at the respective Conven- tions. Speaking for DG was Jane Schreiber who attended the Convention in Pasadena, Calif. With this same spirit prevaiUng in the coming years. Delta Gamma will contribute her part in strengthening inter-sorority relations.

After a week of paint-daubing and drape-stitching, the girls saw their house ready to accept the quota of social functions and serious study in store for it. The results of a fast-paced and hectic rush season was the adding of 24 pledges to their ranks. These new members-to-be made their bow to the campus at a dance given for them at the chapter house. Who said Friday the 13th was unlucky? The Phi Sig actives don ' t agree, for on that night a " Superstition Dance " was given for them by the pledges. Superstition was thrown to the winds as the girls blithely danced around open umbrellas and lit 3 cigarettes on a match. Many alums journeyed to College Park for the Founder ' s Day Banquet. It afforded them a wonderful chance to refresh old acquain- tances and swap stories all of which began with the familiar line — " When I lived at the house—. " An open house following the V.P.I, game was the chapter ' s big affair of the season. The campus en masse trudged down College Ave- nue to the house, where they thawed out with the help of hot chocolate, laughed with old acquaintances, and made new ones. OflBcers were: Marilyn Reubin, president; Selma Cohn, vice-president; Judy Hexter, recording secretary; and Rita Chasen, treas- urer. Life was not all play for the Phi Sig ' s, for the girls worked hard to raise money for the Rheumatic Fever Drive, their national philan- throphy project. Some of the many Phi Sig ' s in activities were: Jeanette Feldman, Presi- dent of Alpha Kappa Delta, and Vice-presi- dent of the Sociology Club; Phyllis Biscarr, President of the Pan-Hellenic Council, and Betty June Hollander, originator and Chair- man of the Pan-Hell shows presented at hospi- tals in and around Washington. The chapter was well represented in Alpha Lambda Delta, frosh honorary, by Marilyn Paper, Rita Rosenfield, and Annette Shapiro. The girls of Phi Sigma Sigma can glance back on this past year as being one of the happiest and most successful in their memory.

To help with the merrymaking, thirty-two pledges were added to the list after an ex- tremely successful rush season. Opening the year was a dance in honor of the pledges, at which Jean Bernstein was chosen Pledge Queen. Following in quick succession were such events as a tea in honor of Alpha Mu ' s charming housemother, Mrs. Ruark, pledge parties, and several dances, formal and informal, to round out a well- filled social calendar. Congratulations flew thick and fast as the number of newly-engaged and married girls climbed steadily. Joining the out-of -circula- tion crowd to the tune of the Wedding March were Tema Goldiner, Naomi Ziggles, Jean Yalem, Lucille Gorfine, Sonia Freedman and Aida Koffman. Added to the list of those wearing sparklers on the third finger, left hand, were Charlotte Glass, Rhona Faye Bernstein, Judith Goldstein, Irma Doline, and Marion HofiF. Mr. Seidel, new son of Hannah Needel Seidel, ex-dean, was unanimously elec- ted Honorary King of the Alpha Mu Chapter, while alumnus Rita Smith Sterling was re- sponsible for Miss Gail Suzanne Sterling, an addition to the list of potential members. Under the leadership of Fern Kandel, Presi- dent, and Lenora Lachman, Vice-president, the AEPhi ' s plunged into campus activities vigorously. Charlotte Frank was elected Vice- president of the Dramatic Club; Betty Ellin had a solo part in the Variety Show; Gilda Yer- man held the office of Junior Pan-Hellenic President. Germaine Margolis was tapped by Alpha Lambda Delta, freshman honorary while Natillie Eskwith has joined the ranks of Sigma Alpha Omicron. Vi vienne Rose held the enviable position of Treasurer of the Dance Club. Fern Kandal had a double job, for she not only served as President of the sorority, but also edited the Sociology paper and was tapped by Alpha Kappa Delta, soci- ology honorary.

U iUpha Lambda Delta MARYLAND CHAPTER WOMEN ' S FRESHMAN HONOR SOCIETY Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS in 1924 Established at MARYLAND in 1938 AlphalLambda Delta, freshman women ' s national honorary, is open for membership to those girls attaining a scholastic average of 3.5 during their freshman year. It offers a challenge to all freshman women, for it is the highest[ honor that they may achieve. Alpha Lambda Delta has as its standards high scholarship, womanliness, and honor. Its members are always alert in upholding the motto — ' Intellectual Living. ' The Alpha Lambda Delta girls feel that membership in the organization is something to live up to, and it is an attainment of which they are justly proud. During registration, members are on their toes, helping the rather bewildered new freshmen. They assist Mortar Board with its yearly sale of chrysanthemums which deck the lapels of coeds at the Maryland Homecoming games. The membership pin worn by the girls be- longing to this society is a minute representa- tion of the famed lamp of knowledge. The purpose of the Maryland Chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta is to promote a higher standard of learning among the freshmen women in the University, and to encourage high scholastic attainment during their entire college career. Ginger Rustin as president, Mary Pat Smith as vice-president, Lucille Echardt as secretary, Sachiko Tanaka as treasurer, and Jeanne Regus as historian serv ed Alpha Lambda Delta as competent oflScers. Intramnrai Sports In a sustained effort to bring to the Univer- sity a complete intramural program in ac- cordance with the increase in enrollment and activities of the students. Colonel W. R. Evans was named to manage these proceed- ings. Included under the ' mural set-up were the fraternity organizations which were scheduled along with the various dorm, vet, and in- dependent teams. The independent and Greek teams, which on previous occasions had met and produced a confusion of results, this year remained in their respective leagues and clashed only on occasion to decide a school champion- ship. This proved a more effective system, and the hope is that in the future the situa- tion will remain the same. Climaxing a spectacular season which high- hghted a much better brand of football, the frat champions. Phi Delta Theta, met the win- ning Calvert Hall " A " section team. The re- sulting score was an expression of the equality of both teams, who, playing under newly- revised football rules, limited the game to clean, effective blocking and brilUant passing and running plays. Calvert " A " annexed the title by chcking on a short pass into the end zone for the 6 points which put them on the better end of a 6-2 count. Phi Delt ' s 2 points were claimed when a Calvert man was caught behind his own goal line in possession of the ball. The Montgomery County All Stars fought Sigma Chi to a 2-1 decision and gathered the second intramural title for the independents. Sigma Chi had previously won the frat crown. A full program, including basketball, foul shooting, handball, table tennis, track, soft- ball, boxing, and bowling completed what ap- pears to be a new regime of sports for the student body. 56 HPIH ' ' ' --■ ' ■ - ' S t J llyHI 1 l w ; Km.

Sophs Play Freshmen for Basketball Title . . . Prom Highlights April Activities. ihis brief account of the Sopho- more Class heads a section touching a portion of campus life with which every Maryland student is familiar. The traditional tug-of-war between the freshmen and the sophs to see which will give the other a mud bath in the Paint was held at Homecoming just prior to the game. Because of superior numbers, and a sophomore administrative slip, the frosh came out victorious. The sports accounts smack of the same fervor and ebullition that character- ized the contests themselves. Football held the spotlight throughout the fall. Basketball, box- ing, and wrestling highhghted the winter, while track, lacrosse, tennis, and baseball fin- ished our year. The last portion of this section treats our eyes to some American beauty, Maryland style, as we view the line-up of queens from September to June. But enough by way of introduction. May of 1946 saw a reorganization in the Class of ' 49. Ralph Geis was elected president, and under his supervision the class ' business was separated and made to fall into one of three categories — either govern- mental, athletic, or social. On the governmental side, the reinstitu- tion of ratting came up for a lot of discussion. The freshmen, most of whom had been through a war, didn ' t need this period of knock- ing down, and therefore, ratting was discontinued. The Sophomore Class made a very real con- tribution by instigating the formation of a Constitutional Committee within the Student Government Association which handled pro- posed constitutional amendments and acted in an advisory capacity to help in the forming of club constitutions. Valuable assistance was given the president by the ofiicers: Dick Hoddinott, vice-presi- dent; Bobbie Schneider, secretary; EUie Hig- gons, treasurer; Duffy Conant, historian; Brian Fennell, sergeant-at-arms, and Jim Smulian, social chairman. The sophomore social calendar included many interesting functions for all those who wanted to attend. One of the first successes was the dance held on March 7 in the New Armory. The Sophomore Prom given on the 18th of April was another well-received affair that enjoyed lots of publicity and a good turn- out. Remembering those milestones it has put rd, the Class of 1949 deserves congratula- tions on a job well done, but it l )r ' y would not be amiss to cite the fresh determination and fortitude necessary to correctly order the events in the two important years just ahead. 107 Athletic Board All sports at the University of Maryland are governed by the Maryland Athletic Board. The Chairma n, Dean Geary Eppley, serves also as director of all student athletics. Other members are: Dr. Ernest Cory, Dr. William Kemp, Dr. Wilham Supplee, and Col. Harland Griswold. Most of these members were former Maryland athletes themselves .Dr. Cory served as football captain in 1908 and ran on the track team as well. Dr. Kemp also served on the football and track teams. Dr. Supplee was our 1923 AU- American end. Early this spring a change was made when Director Geary Eppley stepped down as Chair- man of the Athletic Board in favor of Head Football Coach, Jim Tatum, who came to Maryland from the University of Oklahoma. FootkU Coaches and sports writers throughout the nation heralded the University of Maryland ' s football team as having an unlimited horizon in ' 46-47. With Clark Shaughnessy at the helm and a team filled with power to back him up, Maryland University was sure of a ' b owl- bid. ' The opening game on September 28 was a great triumph for Maryland. With a 12,000 capacity crowd watching and cheering, Mary- land slaughtered Bainbridge to the tune of 54-0. Tommy Mont ' s team led the pace with speed and blocking. With one triumph behind them, the Terps took on the Spiders. Richmond riddled the Maryland team with a decisive 37-7 win. The newspapers stated, " The University of Mary- land ' s ' Bowl Express ' ran into a blind switch. " With the hope of regaining their prestige, Maryland went to Chapel Hill, N. C, and re- ceived a mud-drenched 33-0 beating. The Terps used an aerial attack which almost succeeded in scoring an upset, but with the combination of rain and bad luck they took a real shel- lacking. A full house in College Park witnessed the unpredictable Maryland team upset V.P.I. It was " Better beat V.P.I, or die, " as this game was Maryland ' s only chance for a comeback. Turyn ' s team played a fast game, beating V.P.I. 6-0. With two minutes left in the game. the Gobblers moved down to Maryland ' s one- yard line, but in the final surge Maryland pushed them back to win the battle. Mary- land ' s gain was also a loss, for Sammy Behr, tackled by a V.P.I, player, broke two of his toes and was unable to play for the rest of the season. The V.P.I, victory under their belts, the Old Liners moved to W illiamsburg to meet William and Mary. Vic Turyn ' s ' 11 ' pushed the Indians all over the field during the first quarter. With a change of teams in the second quarter came a change in luck; the Indians trounced Maryland with a 41-7 victory. Stan 108 Lavine made the only score of the day with a quarter-back sneak. On November 9, Maryland played host to South Carolina in our Homecoming game. Common excitement and disappointment for Maryland when S.C. made a touchdown in the last two seconds of the game. The Terps played Washington and Lee at Baltimore with a small crowd of onlookers cheering them on to victory. The play of the day occurred when Mont intercepted a pass and ran 98 yards for a touchdown. Maryland won with a decisive 27 to 7 score. Displayed in the Michigan State game was a team with a broken spirit. There was dis- sension on the Maryland team due to losses, and it was defeated 26 to 14 with Morter mak- ing both touchdowns. The final game was at North Carolina State. The Old Liners put a final effort into the game, but lost 28 to 7. Vernon Seibert on a 45 -yard run scored the only touchdown. lina State, Washington and Lee, V.M.I. , and Franklin and Marshall. The two Terp wins were over Loyola and Galludet. Wrestling Wrestling was the last pre-war sport to be revived at Maryland. W illiam ' Sully ' Krause returned in the fall to become coach. ' Sully ' was a member of Maryland ' s first wresthng team in 1939 and also won Southern Confer- ence laurels. Although Maryland did not walk away with honors this year, the spirit remaips high and the proposals for next year promising. Edwin Willson — 165 lbs, Bob Marsheck — 175 lbs., and Ed Gumey — 136 lbs., were most prominent on the team this year. Ted Crom, Harry Gamble, and George King showed ex- cellent prospects for the future. Maryland lost its matches to North Caro- Basketball The Terps, in their debut on the court this year, met with a smashing defeat at the hands of West Virginia. The Mountaineers romped off with a 81-43 count. In the season ' s first home game Maryland made a comeback by trimming Western Maryland 49-39. John Ed- wards and Bill Brown, both vets of last year ' s team, had 12 points each. One of the roughest games ever witnessed in Ritchie CoUsevun was the Johns Hopkins contest. In the second half rally the Terps came through with a 41-36 victory. The first Southern Conference game at North Carolina gave Maryland the short end of a 58-43 score. In spite of a sensational rally by Mont, Turyn, and Brown, the Terps were unable to close the gap which determined victory. A distinct upset came when the Old Liners outplayed and outpointed George Washing- ton to the tune of 44-43. Frenzied spectators saw the game change hands eleven times dur- ing the playing period. A split second after the whistle blew, G.W. ' s Barry Kreisberg sank a goal which proved to be unscored for the Colonials. After this, a 62-48 victory over the Quantico Marines was balanced by a 41-39 de- feat by the Richmond Spiders. The Terps made it a threesome in Virginia by crushing W ashington and Lee, 65-60; Vir- ginia Tech, 57-49; and V.M.I., 61-50. With these victories under their belts, the Old Liners returned to meet Navy during exam week. A 55-27 defeat was met at the hands of a smooth working Middie quint. 109 By taking the Tarheels on their return en- gagement, and also the Generals for a 65-60 ride, Maryland Conference hopes began to rise. The Terps met Georgetown in early Feb- ruary at College Park. The Maryland team was on the offensive during the entire game, while Don Scherholz with Mont and Turyn held the stellar roles in the 55-49 triumph. The Old Liner ' s went to Uline Ar ena for a comeback with George Washington. Despite the high scoring of Scherholz, Turyn, and Mont, Maryland lost 63-48. BoxJDg Early this fall Head Coach ' Heinie ' Miller andh is two assistants, Rusini and Cronin, started working the large group that turned out for the boxing team. There was a surplus of material in every class and it looked as if Maryland would be a chief contender for the Southern Conference title. On December 19 Maryland opened its sea- son with the Cavaliers of Virginia as its first opponent. Ed Rieder dropped a close decision to Virginia ' s Joe MaragUotta, and the final count saw Maryland on the short end of 4 - S}4 decision. The Old Liners quickly recov- ered and trampled the Bucknell team with an 8-0 win. The next opponents of Maryland were the highly favored Cadets from the Military Acad- emy at West Point. Bill Hiestard of Army provided another thrill when he succeeded in holding Danny Smith to a draw. At the end of the evening Maryland was ahead of Army with a 4 -3 score. On February 24, al- though hampered with four regulars on the sick list, Maryland defeated Catholic Univer- sity 4K-3K- For the next two weekends Maryland trav- elled deep into the south to subdue South Carolina and North Carolina in that order. The defeat of the King ' s Point Merchant Marine team proved to be a hard fight for Maryland. It was in this match that Andy Quattrocchi broke his hand, after turning in his 6th victory of the season. The Maryland team won its way to contest in the first post-war Southern Conference Box- ing Tournament. A two-day meet was held in College Park; Maryland, the Citadel, and Clemson entered full teams, while North Car- olina and South Carolina each entered only six men. Maryland, after fighting its way to the finals, proudly won the Southern Conference Boxing Tournament with 22 points. Ken Malone, heavyweight, was accredited with the victory, for it was this last bout which determined the title. The other Mary- land title winner, Ed Rieder, gave what proved to be the best bout of the evening. 110 Rifle Team The University of Maryland Rifle Team, coached by Colonel Harland Griswold, en- joyed a successful season, remaining unde- feated through to the end of February. In a match in the New Armory with the Beltsville Research Center Team, a freshman, Arthur Cook of Washington, was high scorer with 296 points out of a possible 300. Last summer in the matches at Camp Perry, Ohio, Cook fired his way to the National Junior Championhip. Other outstanding riflemen of the year were Decker, Briguglio, Harris, Weber, Bowling, Jenkins, and Carter. Georgetown, Marine Headquarters Unit, National Rifle Club, and the Marine Reserve Station have been among those who bowed to the invincible Terps. Their fifteenth consecu- tive win was against George Washington Uni- versity. Latch Key Organized at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1938 Last year the Latch Key Society was re- organized under the guidance of Perce Wolfe, football manager. Composed of varsity and junior managers of all sports and the Sports Editor of the Diamondhacic, the purpose of the Club is to promote a greater harmony between various varsity team sports and to supervise the care of competing visiting teams. During the three-day Southern Conference Boxing Tournament the Latch Key Society handled plans and team supervision. Ofiicers this year were: Jack Heise, presi- dent; Irv Nable, vice-president; and Vic Mul- hn, secretary -treasurer. Dean Geary Eppley was advisor. Women ' s Sports Women ' s intramurals are directed by the Women ' s Recreation Association under the sponsorship of the Department of Physical Education for Women. A complete and well- rounded program of athletic activities was presented for the Maryland coeds, and all the sports featured were enthusiastically accepted by the girls. Each sport is managed by a different mem- ber of the Women ' s Recreation Association Board and her assistants. A sports represen- tative from each house of residence cooperates with the manager in organizing and carrying through tournament competition. The fall saw an inter-house hockey tourna- ment. Spring activities included volleyball and tennis, and throughout the remainder of the year basketball, badminton and bowling were offered. Winners of the various sports include: Vol- leyball won by Gamma Phi Beta; Hockey won by Margaret Brent Dormitory, Badminton singles won by Virginia Nichols; doubles by Dorothy White and Mary Eiseman; and Bowl- ing by Kappa Delta Sorority. Ill Sipa Tan Epsilon MARYLAND CHAPTER Honorary Women ' s Recreation Association Founded at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1940 Sigma Tau Epsilon, the Women ' s Honorary Recreation Association, was established on our campus in 1940 under the guidance of Miss Gwendolyn Drew, a former member of the Women ' s Physical Education Depart- ment. Working with the Women ' s Recreation Association, Sigma Tau Epsilon has sponsored an intramural sports program each year since its establishment. Hockey, bowling, badmin- ton, basketball, volleyball, and softball tour- naments highlighted the activities of the coeds this year. Requirements for membership are good sportsmanship, leadership, voluntary partici- pation in W.R.A., outstanding service in the field of women ' s sports, an all-time scholastic average of 2.5, and members must be upper- classmen. Tapping took place at the W.R.A. picnic in the fall and at the annual banquet in the spring. The biggest event of the year was the pres- entation of the Sigma Tau Epsilon trophy to the winner of the girls ' intramural basketball tournament. Another function, the annual basketball gathering, was held for the alumnae and undergraduates in February; and the yearly newspaper. The Chatter, was distrib- uted among them. OflBcers for the year were: Millie Burton, president; Mary Eiseman, vice-president; Marion Benson, secretary-treasurer. Dr. Rachel J. Benton served as faculty advisor throughout the year. The other members were Louisa White and Marjorie Frederick. W.R.A. The Women ' s Recreation Association which furnishes sports activities for the women students of the campus, was under the direc- tion of President Louisa White and Faculty Advisor Dr. Rachel Benton. The year was started with a hockey tournament, managed by Mary Eiseman. The dormitories, sorori- ties, daydodgers, and faculty entered teams, and after a lot of fun and hard playing, Mar- garet Brent was the winner. W.R.A. spon- sored a hockey playday for D.C. and Mary- land schools at the University. Refreshments were served when the strenuous games ended. Within a week the bowUng tournament began. Kappa Delta was victorious for the third successive year, and therefore still has the pleasure of dusting off the bowling trophy. The second semester began with the basket- ball tournament. The teams fought strenu- ously for the coveted Sigma Tau Epsilon trophy. The games were oflBciated by the girls who were trying for their University of Maryland Basketball Rating. To be awarded this emblem, one must pass a written examina- tion and a practical test which is graded by a committee of three. Girls holding this rating also officiated at nearby school games. Volley- ball, badminton, tennis, and table tennis tournaments were also held. The year was climaxed by the banquet. At this time, the new officers were installed, the managers for the next year were announced and the awards were given to the winning teams. Letters were awarded to the girls who had participated in eight sports and served on one committee. W.R.A. furnishes a well- rounded program for all pupils interested in recreation.

W. fas it by ' 42, or ' 43, or was it ' 44 that most of the present Junior Class expected to be graduates of the University of Maryland? There weren ' t many who could tell about the future, and as the Class of ' 48 re-entered the portals of Maryland last fall with renewed vigor to take up the traditions and responsi- biUties that were placed upon it, its members found it their duty to make the most of this position. As a new group, they strove for campus recognition and cooperation within an ever-increasing student body. Juniors were active in all phases of campus life. After an enthusiastic campaign in the pre- vious spring, Robert Baker triumphantly cap- tured the position of Class President. The other elected officers were: Roy Morter, Maryland gridder, vice-president; Louise Ste- phenson, the secretary; Terry Speaker, the treasurer; Mildred Mooney, historian; Bob DeBinder, sergeant-at-arms. Chronologically speaking, January 28 has come and gone. It wasn ' t particu- ' ' J-E-f ' - : larly cold, nor was it unusually warm for January, and it had little to set it apart from the rest of the month as being unique. In parts of Washington it was just another day, but for the Junior Class and for the entire Maryland campus it was the highlight of the year ' s social calendar. That date marked the night of the Junior- Senior Promenade. Randy Brooks and his fourteen held forth from the stage in the Presi- dential Ballroom of Washington ' s Statler, and from 9 ' til 1, the gentlemen and their ladies danced, renewed old acquaintances, smiled, laughed, and laid the framework on which to hang an unforgettable evening. The fuss and bother of going formal, the white scarfs, the fragrant corsages, the hpstick on the white bow ties — all give certain flavor thats perhaps will come back to us again, but they do form a definite part of our memory of that night. Three-thirty late leaves gave time for break- fast to be served in the various fraternity houses. Again this spring the Junior Class assisted Mortar Board in carrying out the traditional May Day activities. Junior girls selected a May Queen from the Senior Class to preside over e ceremony which was held on the Ad- ministration green. With suspense pense we watched the members of the Mortar Board tap the out- standing women of the Junior Class. Colorful entertainment was added to the festive occasion by musical presentations of the dance classes and the music department. 148 lie Mlicate Board The Committee on Publications is ap- pointed by the President of the University and has general supervision of all student pub- Ucations. The Board consists of a chairman and three other faculty members. Dean Reid is chairman and his assistants are Dr. Charles White of the Chemistry Department, Miss Adele H. Stamp, Dean of Women, and Prof, Cecil R. Ball of the English Department. Board members meet regularly during the year to pass on new appointments for the various pubhcations and to decide matters of pohcy and management. The Terrapin Can we borrow your typewriter? " " When is copy due? " " Is it too late to have my picture taken ? " These were the ever-present questions that the Terrapin editors and staff wrestled with from day to day. Those who assisted in trying to beat the deadline found a great deal of trepidation in their work but equally as much companionable mirth. Jean Chickering, the boss lady, kept her whip shined but seldom used it. Nancy Sim- mons as Associate Editor numbered pages, cropped pictures, and helped Chickie shine her whip. Jack Clark chased around with con- tracts in one hand and his Business Manager ' s check book in the other. With typer ' s cramp and a collection of new excuses from organi- zations for late write-ups, Terry Speaker copy edited the printed matter. Fred DeMarr, Photography Editor, with the ever-energetic photographer, Al Dannegar, supplied the shots — for the yearbook, that is. As fast as the copies were printed, Claudia Delavergne, Cir- culation Manager, had them in the mail. Never a dull moment for any of the crew. Just when the office settled down to a peaceful calm, DeMarr wovdd break the spell with a terrific pound and " Open the Door, Richard, " while now and again a long moan or sly giggle drifted to us from the Old Line office — a new joke originated. The staff had more than a finger in the cake. Johnny Miller and Bill Dixon, always avail- able, served as chief book-wrappers and handymen. Helping on the business end were Phyllis Biscarr and Bill Doyle. Terry was ably assisted by Bill Groome who struggled with characters per inch in writing captions; Brad Norris who tussled with words and pro- duced some excellent copy; Candy Smith who helped with re-write material and interviews; Sally Dunnington pounded the typewriter, while Page Sinton could be found laboriously making phone calls, assembling pictures, or doing odd jobs. Kay Burger, Royellen Cramp- ton, and Jean Culbert were increasingly help- ful in here-and-there jobs. It has been the desire of the staff to give the student body a book that will serve in recall- ing and reviewing the friendships of class- mates and professors, of favorite dances and parties, and of a particular college year that cannot be erased from our minds. The Diamondback Traditionally a part of life at Maryland, the Diamondback, student weekly newspaper, took lengthy strides during the 1946-47 semesters towards becoming one of the leading parts in the informal but closely knit fraternity of college papers. For the first time since it was founded in 1909, the Diamondback left the print shop of Tom Anglin in Hyattsville to take up a new home in the Twentieth Century Printing Company of Baltimore. After sur- 144 mounting financial obstacles and refilling a war-depleted staff, the paper on February 11, published its first Tuesday edition since the United States entered the war. The changes were made under the leader- ship of Editor Bill McDonald and Managing Editor Ethel Jongeneel who took over their posts in the fall. McDonald resigned from the staff at the end of the semester, and Miss Jongeneel was appointed editor with Mark Coplin and Weems Hawkins stepping up as co-managing editors. Down through the staff performances were faithful: Carol Haase fighting an eternal battle to keep the editors within the budget; Pat Piper and Chester Grassmuck peddling advertising to fatten the coffers; Will Schmidt, Barney Balch and Dick Dunlap stirring with their columns the wrath of the powers that be; Norm Katz and the sports staff struggling vainly to meet a Monday afternoon deadline; Bea Allen stuflBng an endless honeycomb of mail boxes; Kitty Blake telling everybody ' s business; Clyde Houle, Allen Bowers, and their copy desk ga ng struggling to untangle the words of an overzealous reporter; B. J. Audish ratthng over the big shots; Lou Eisen- houer grinding out his editorials; Al Cohen and Art Cosing contributing wit and wisdom; George Cheely and Joel Rosenblatt scraping copy together; Warren Kubler, Al Danneger and Dick Kirk shooting the campus scene; and the many, many others whose mention space does not permit, but whose work their col- leagues will not forget. The Old Line Once upon a time in the rush between classes several imhappy people were pushed rudely into a small room in the Ad. Building basement. There, in a heap of old waste- baskets, they found the undiscovered remains of the venerable Old Line, which flourished in the pre-Atomic days. It was crowded and warm and several women had been squeezed into the " M " file, creating a major dislocation in the filing system. Ever since then they have been excavating all sorts of literature. In October, a battery of very raw jokes leaped out of the " J " file and bounded all over the building before they were beaten back with a green carpet. Then at Christmas several gnomish animaculae crawled out of " X " and began eating up the woodwork in a frenzy. These hucksters proved to be a trio who went by the names Akers, Klavan, and Mortimer. Neither print nor exams nor social indigna- tion halted their monthly plagues, and in April, they loosed another volley in the form of a parody. This brought full retribution upon them, and the editor redeployed his staff into the " A " file to begin a fresh campaign in eradicating the vermin. Art Cosing of the Art Department drew up a master plan of the topographical terrain, and Dee Speed, Manag- ing Editor, led the assault. The battle was furious and some casualties were sustained, but it can now be safely reported that the fihng cabinet is ours. 145 The H Book The editors and staff of the ' 46- ' 47 M Book began work early in May with total reorgani- zation, complete coverage, and artistic pre- sentation as prime considerations. This year ' s Frosh Bible, with several inno- vations and many departures from precedent in its staff, style, and make-up, presented the incoming Freshmen with 154 pages of perti- nent information, pictures of campus build- ings and instructors. Editor was Byrd Lucas; Business Manager, Barney Balch; Associate Editor, Bill Mc- Donald; and Harvey L. Miller served ably as Director of Publicity. Others on the staff were Sally Conlon, Women ' s Editor; Norm Katz, Sports Editor; Art Cosing, Art Editor; and Warren Kubler and Herb Richmond took charge of photography. Pi Detta GpsfloB MARYLAND CHAPTER Honorary Journalistic Fraternity Founded at SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY in 1909 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1930 Members: Jean K. Chickering, Sara E. Conlon, Mark D. Coplin, Frederick S. DeMarr, Donald Everson, Poe Ewell, Betty Gatch, Carol Haase, Ella Weems Hawkins, Rayner Hesse, Ethel Jongeneel, Norman Katz, Vity Kazlauskas, William Lakeman, Byrd Lucas, William McDonald, Sally Morgan, Patricia Piper, Edward Rider, Wilson Schmidt, Genie Simmons, Nancy Sim- mons, Dee Speed, Louise Stephenson, Virginia Stewart. Honoring those students who have given service to University of Maryland publica- tions is the Honorary Journalistic Fraternity, Pi Delta Epsilon. After Dee Speed retired from the presi- dency, in December, Fred DeMarr took over the leadership along with Weems Hawkins, vice-president, Carol Haase, secretary, Louise Stephenson, treasurer, and Ethel Jongeneel, historian. The program for Pi Delta Episilon included the installation of a journalism course, the granting of academic credit for work in a major position, and the continuation of aid to the Maryland Inter-High School Journalism Convention. Hoie GmoDiics M The Home Economics Club ' s first activity for the year was a tea sponsored by them for all new students in the College of Home Eco- nomics. The Freshmen were introduced to the Dean, faculty, and fellow students of the College. The club this year, composed of ap- proximately seventy students, attended lec- tures, movies, and demonstrations on inter- esting and timely subjects. One of the outstanding events of the year was a fashion show sponsored by the club. The members themselves acted as the models 146 and displayed everything from bathing suits to snow togs. A Christmas party, terminating the World Christmas Festival for 1946, was presented by the club. At this occasion gifts were con- tributed and collected for the victimized war children in various parts of the world. The Home Economics Club achieved suc- cess through the fine cooperation of its officers. Those serving as leaders were: Charlotte Conaway, president; Pat Schertz, vice-presi- dent; Dickey Ashley, treasurer; Marianne Trimble, secretary; and Nancy Simmons, program chairman. Omicron 1 ALPHA ZETA CHAPTER Honorary Home Economics Fraternity Founded at MICHIGAN STATE COLLEGE in 1912 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1937 Initiation into Omicron Nu, Home Eco- nomics National Honor Society, is one of the highest honors a girl in Home Ec. may re- ceive. With the recognition 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 in the fall and five per cent having junior rating in the spring for membership in the organization, thus totaling twenty per cent of any one class. Following the tradition of promoting scholar- ship, a tea for Freshmen and Sophomores was given in the spring, and an award given to the Freshman girl with the highest scholastic standing. Both the fall and spring tappings were followed by an invitation ceremony and banquet. kociation of Veterans The Association of Veterans began the fall semester with a recruiting drive which suc- ceeded in enrolling over 1700 members. As the club had increased so much in size over the previous semester, the new president. Bill Kyriakys, instituted a streamlined organiza- tion with several committees to handle the various needs of the veteran students. One of the first arms of the Vets ' Club to go into action was the group headed by John Miller. It did a fine job of tutoring many of the veterans who had been having trouble with th eir studies. A Veterans ' AfiFairs Committee, directed by Len Cottrell, did much valuable liaison work with the local Veterans ' Administration offi- cials and conducted a siu vey of the traffic problem on the boulevard. Lou Whitworth counted up dollar bills like Andy Brown counts up millions and financed Joe Invemizzi ' s successful efforts to entertain everyone. Plans were made to hold another dance on the lines of the ' Twin Twirl ' that proved so popular during the previous spring. Carl Robinson, vice-president, and Florence Kretchner, secretary, kept themselves busy handUng the administrative details of the or- ganization, while Jim Moore and Dunbar MacNemar kept the Vets informed as to what was going on. The former barrack buffoons and shipboard slapstick artists turned out to rehearse a musi- cal comedy written by James Robinson with words and music by Gene Klavan and Len Grossman. The show ' Dream Boy ' was taken on tour in numerous veterans ' hospitals. With its constructive program and large numbers of active members, there was no doubt that the Association of Veterans would continue to move smoothly in the right direc- 147 tion. New years and new faces will furnish the groundwork for new successes ahead. in. Now an association, I.S.A. ever has as its main purpose the uniting of non-Greek stu- dents into a confederation. Those independents who were intimately related with the club will remember its outstanding existence this year. The President of the I.S.A. was Claude Callegary, a very able leader whose every effort throughout the year was bent toward establishing a solid foundation upon which the I.S.A. could grow. He couldn ' t have been suc- cessful without the competent staff that worked under him. Sally Conlon and John Healey, First and Second Vice-presidents, respectively, both worked to coordinate the activities of all the committees that had been put into opera- tion. Debby Kraus was keeper of the treasury and very aptly looked after the organization ' s finances. Barbara Bacoff handled the records, spending her spare time religiously noting the varied activities of the I.S.A. The Freshman Mixer opened the semester ' s activities sponsored by the I.S.A. At this dance a typical rat and rabbit were selected by Dean Eppley, Dean of Men and Miss Leslie, Assistant Dean of Women. Seeing a need for more student activities, the I.S.A. through its seat on the Student Government, asked for and was given an ap- propriation for a series of Saturday night dances open to the student body. The dances were given the title ' AH Maryland Dances. ' The ' A.M. Dance ' on December 14, saw Miriam Moore being given the title T.S.A. Queen ' and Bucky Morseburger was elevated to the enviable post of ' Most Eligible Bachelor. ' The I.S.A. truly lives up to its pledge: To create and further student activities in scho- lastic, religious, and social fields. S.M.A.C. The purposes of the Student Musical Activ- ities Committee are to coordinate the activ- ities of the various musical organizations it represents and to apportion funds for their ex- penses to them. Also this year S.M.A.C. ac- tively supported the Cultural Program. S.M.A.C. ' s most important endeavor was in conducting a ' Fight Song Contest ' in an at- tempt to enliven the school spirit and add another good student-composed song to the tunes of past years. Members of the committee are the President and Treasurer of the Student Band, Clef and Key, Men ' s Glee Club, Women ' s Chorus, and Orchestra. Officers this year were: Robert Bechtold, president; Fay Freidman, secretary; and Lois Forrester, treasurer; with Harlan Ran- dall and Harold Yeager as faculty advisors. Student Band The Student Band, after several years of in- activity, has pulled out its old constitution and taken an active part in S.M.A.C. activities. Although now separate from the R.O.T.C., the band has many men who play in both bands. Following the retirement of M.Sgt. Otto Seibeneicher last year, Mr. Harold Yeager has been appointed full-time director of all in- strumental organizations of the school. Forty students turned out for the first practice in the fall. Their expanded program included not only playing for the games here, but also making several trips with the football team. 148 Officers for the year were: Bob Bechtold, president; Hugh Ross, vice-president and drum major; Pat Brown, secretary -treasurer; and Bill Liedhch, librarian. Women ' s Horns A group of sixty talented women has pro- vided many hours of entertainment for Mary- land students, Washingtonians, and service- men throughout the past year. Women ' s Chorus, under the able leadership of ' Doc ' Randall, provided many beautiful arrange- ments of songs for several student sings on campus. The chorus was first presented when they sang at the S.M.A.C. Community Sing in the Coliseum in the fall. They also enter- tained at Ft. Meade and the Naval Academy at Annapolis. These occasions, plus their own ' Hour of Charm, ' seem to have become tradi- tional affairs. The officers were: Lois Forrester, president; Barton Hall, vice-president; Ramona Randall, secretary; Fay Friedman, treasurer; and Jean McComas, librarian. Men ' s Glee Clnb With only five of the 45 group remaining. Prof. Harlan B. Randall was faced with the problem of building practically an entire new Men ' s Glee Club this year. With the return of many veterans to their ranks the group became a polished and melodious chorus. Displaying tremendous range and power in their repertoire, twelve of the members sang on a broadcast in November over Station WITH. After its campus debut in the S.M.A.C. Community Sing, the club made a trip to Baltimore where it was represented among 400 other singers of the Associated Men ' s Clubs of America. Officers of the club were as follows: Nicholas Romanelli, president; Reginald Hall, secre- tary; Walter Baylor, treasurer; Walter Beam, librarian, Romeo Mansueti, publicity chair- man; Dr. Harlan Randall, director; and John Grabner, accompanist. Stndent Orchestra The University of Maryland Student Or- chestra maintained a repertoire of well-known classical and semi-classical selections. The Faculty Tea given by Dean Stamp was the first function at which this group performed. Giving us works by Berlioz, Dvorak, Wagner, and Victor Herbert, the Spring Concert paved the way for the successful performance ren- dered by the Orchestra at the May Day Ceremonies. Under the capable leadership of Mr. Harold Yeager who was assisted by Mr. J. M. Power, noted violinist and teacher, the organization boasted 34 members, bringing it up to pre-war standards. Those in office were: Joe Keplinger, presi- dent; Phyllis Johnson, vice-president; Ruth Hall, secretary -treasurer; and Helen Baker, librarian. Olef and Key Non-professional musical and dramatic tal- ent are combined in Clef and Key, campus musical organization. Under the supervision of Prof. Harlan Randall of the Music Depart- ment, the productions strive to present crea- tions by and for the University students. ' Bottom of the Barrel, ' this year ' s Variety Show, highlighted such old campus troopers as emcee Gil Bresnick, and vocalists Eileen 149 Simpson Turyn, Rosemary Gordon, Lois For- rester, Pat Libbey, and Mary Frances Hunter. Among the finds were the Puerto Rican sextet and the Three B ' s trio. Don Mortimer in the roll of Mr. Telafish, dining hall manager, pro- vided laughs by ordering his stooges around with a bull whip. The most sensational act was performed by a small bat, which flew un- heralded into the Janitor Minstrel Act during one appearance, and forced the singers to alter their hnes to fit the situation. Magicians and singers added to the merriment. The ' Bottom of the Barrel ' was literally scraped for all-out entertainment. The show was under the supervision of Prexy Edith Krenlich. John Shields was producer; Sam Allen, business manager; Terry Speaker, make- up chairman; George Cheely, property chief; and Walter Beam, stage director. OflBcers for 1946-47 were Edith Krenlich, president; Walter Beam, vice-president; Doro- thy Dansberger, secretary, and Lois Forrester, treasurer. Footlight M 1946-47 was another successful year for the Footlight Club with four productions as the major part of its program. ' Squaring the Circle, ' directed by Mr. Edgar Wood, opened the theatrical season. This Russian comedy was written by Valentine Kaytayev. Alice Antal, Malcolm Campbell, Ruth Morgan, and Kennard Calfee played the leading roles. January found ' The Little Foxes ' making a successful run. The leading roles of Regina and Horace were capably handled by Jackie Hastings and Mai Campbell. Jere Hathaway and John Stuntz, outstanding Footlighters for the past several seasons, held the supporting roles. Dr. Charles Niemeyer directed. The third play of the year was ' Volpone, an Ehzabethan drama by Ben Johnson, featur- ing a superior cast under the directorship of Mr. Lyle Mayer. All the sets were designed by Mr. Orville Larson and built under his supervision by the various stage crews. Members were under the guidance of their president, Jean Roby. As- sisting her on the executive committee were Charlotte Frank, vice-president; John Stuntz, secretary, Dottie McCaslin, treasurer; Betty Ritter, business manager, and Bert WiUiams, librarian. The guidance of Dr. Ray Ehrens- berger has been largely responsible for the continued effectiveness of the club. Rossborongh Olab The Rossborough Club has made great prog- ress since its beginning 55 years ago. The club was named after the Rossborough Inn, the oldest building on the campus and once a meeting place for such notables as Washington and Lafayette. Members of the club have danced to the waltzes and ballads of the late 19th Century, the jazz of the ' roaring twen- ties, ' the big apples and shagging of the ' thirties, ' the jitter-bugging and jive of the pre- 1«0 war days, and this year they were introduced to the suave swing of the day. Claude Thornhill, whose smooth arrange- ments were the highlights of the first Ross- borough in November, shared the stage in the new armory with Ken Keeley ' s Orchestra. A new queen was added to the long list of Maryland beauties at the Christmas Ross- borough. Betty Hyser was chosen by the judging committee from a group of ten lovely contenders. She was crowned Rossborough Queen by the club ' s President, Boyd Waters. The armory was again crowded with Old Liners who danced under the Christmas deco- rations to the music of Bob Harry ' s Orchestra. A February dance brought Shep Fields and one success following another, the Club gave its final dance in the spring. The oflBcers carried out the Rossborough Club ' s complete program. Those who were elected to serve the Club were Boyd Waters, president; Josh Miller, vice-president; John Cochrane, treasurer; Bill Hancock, secretary; Emory Harman, social chairman; and Gene Heil, publicity chairman. Red Cross College M Volunteer members of the University Red Cross Unit continued new i)eacetime activities under the direction of Jasmine Armstrong. Attending members of the Maryland Chapter were inspired by a two-day conference of Red Cross college units from Pa., Md., W. Va., and Va. The Canteen Corps visited Andrews Field, serving doughnuts and coflfee to the men. Re- creation and hospital entertainment at Walter Reed were also sponsored by the chapter. A Staff Assistant Course was given to students who helped, after they had been trained, at the headquarters in Hyattsville. The annual fund drive was the main project of the Unit for the spring semester. ' Service ' has been the Unit ' s watchword for the three years it has been on the campus. TaD Beta Pi MARYLAND BETA CHAPTER Honorary Engineering Fraternity Founded at LEHIGH UNIVERSITY in 1885 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1929 The Maryland Beta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, National Engineering Honorary Society, was led through a successful year by the fol- io win g officers : Walter Beam , president ; George Lundquist, vice-president; Reginald Hall, sec- retary; and Mr. Morgan Johnson, treasurer. Membership is by election during the indi- vidual ' s junior year, but prior to this time he must have attained a 3.0 overall average for his first two years of Engineering study. A smoker was held at the ATO house early in December at which the new pledges were further acquainted with the Society. In Jan- uary initiation ceremonies were held on a Saturday afternoon in the Old Library. This was followed that same evening by a banquet at the Hamilton Hotel in Washington. Mr. Arthur Turner from the Experimental Sta- tion in Beltsville, Md., an honorary initiate, was the main speaker at the function. A.S.M.E. The American Society of Mechanical En- gineers provides benefits and opportunities for men engaged in the practice of mechanical engineering. The current year has been one of tremen- Ml dous expansion for the University of Maryland Chapter. With the return of many former members and the addition of new men, the local chapter has increased this year to a mem- bership of eighty. Lectures, joint society meet- ings and inspection trips have been part of the year ' s activities. At the annual A.S.M.E. Student Conven- tion held in May, 1946, at Bucknell Univer- sity, the University of Maryland gained per- manent possession of the ' AUeghenies Student Conference Man Miles Cup ' by winning it for the third time. A.S.C.E. The student chapter of the American So- ciety of Civil Engineers tripled their mem- bership from that of last year. At the first meeting oflBcers for the current year were elected: G. M. Nairn, president; R. H. Hall, vice-president; D. K. Sutcliffe, secretary; and J. H. Miller, treasurer. The Maryland Chapter sponsored a conven- tion on this campus with extended invitations to the nearby universities. Round table dis- cussions and luncheons were the principal events. The committees for the year have had out- standing results. Much credit for this success goes to the Program Committee, Reggie Hall, chairman, Johnny Zalonis and Dave Pohmer, and to the Membership Committee, Bob Jackowski and Walt Osborne. LUll The University of Maryland ' s Student Chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, representing the University ' s so- called ' plumbers, ' expanded their war-time membership this year to the greatest in the history of the chapter. In the election of officers for the school year ' 46-47, Forrest Wilcox was elected chairman, Carl Winkler, vice-chairman, Mattie Moore- head, secretary, Howard Cromwell, treas- urer, and David Green, sergeant-at-arms. The meetings this y ear have featured talks by Dr. Wilbiu J. Huff, faculty counselor, and Dr. Nathan Drake, department head. Tech- nical movies were shown and, refreshments were served. Stodent Affiliates of Americaii Chemists The Maryland Chapter of the Student Affi- liates of the American Chemical Society was organized in March, 1945, The basic purpose of the organization is to make it possible for those on campus who are interested in chemis- try and related fields to become acquainted with one another and to further their knowl- edge of chemistry. Under the leadership of President Shirley Hodgson and the able advisorship of Dr. G. Forrest Woods, the club presented speakers and films on various chemical and technical subjects during the academic year. The event which climaxed the year was the annual chemistry picnic held in Sligo Park in May, Alpha Chi Sigma ALPHA RHO CHAPTER Professional Chemical Fraternity Founded at UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN in 1902 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1928 Alpha Chi Sigma is a professional chemical MS fraternity which furthers the promotion of chemistry as a science and a profession. Thus, it unites its members through ties of common interest. In order to be eligible for member- ship, a student must maintain for one and a half years a 2.5 average in chemistry. In no other field of university study is there greater need for students to continue their knowledge for the assistance of the individual. It is this hnk as well as the natural instinct of men interested in the same work that binds the organization together. For the past year the meetings have been conducted by Richard Peck, president. He was assisted by Edward Price, vice-president; Irwin Tucker, secretary; and Wilham Scharpf, treasurer. Sipa Alpha Omicron HONORARY BACTERIOLOGY SOCIETY Founded at WASHINGTON STATE COLLEGE in 1925 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1932 Sigma Alpha Omicron, Honorary Bacteri- ology Fraternity, offers an incentive to stu- dents on the Maryland campus whose field of endeavor lies in bacteriology. Membership in SAO is extended to junior and senior majors having 12 credits in bacteriology, an all-time 2.5 average, and an avid interest in the fra- ternity and the profession. Early this year the SAO constitution was rewritten. Initiation of twelve new members was highlighted by a reception featuring Dr. Justina Hill as guest speaker. SAO sponsored lectures, movies, and ex- hibits during the year, and published an an- nual newsletter, reviewing its work. The name of the year ' s most outstanding student was engraved on a plaque. Officers are: president, Eleanor Ball; vice- president and treasurer; Betty Anne Gordy, secretary, Mary Dyer; faculty advisor. Dr. N. C. Laffer. Sociology Onb Two new features were introduced by the Sociology Club in the ' 46-47 semesters. A key was designed especially for the club, and a periodical, " The Sociology News, " was in- troduced and continued as a worthwhile project. The members supported a program which brought many well-known sociologists to the campus as guest speakers. Field trips and a second research project were undertaken by the club. A party for all sociology majors was given in the second semester, and with complete rep- resentation the club rounded out a year of social as well as academic development. The coming years will provide the club with the opportunity it needs to expand and develop even more. Alpha Kappa Delta Alpha Kappa Delta, National Honorary Society, recognizes high scholastic achieve- ment and outstanding interest in Sociology among majors and graduates. After the first installation in the spring, the eleven initiates found that the Greek letters of Alpha Kappa Delta mean " To investigate mankind for the purpose of service. " The new honorary began its life on campus by electing Jean Roby as its leader and Jean- ette Feldman as vice-president. During the Christmas hoUdays, secretary-treasurer Betsy 1«8 Lipp and member Honeylou Kundin were sent as delegates from Alpha Chapter of Maryland to the meeting of the national society held in Chicago. With the kind aid of Dr. Peter P. Lejins, Alpha Kappa Delta is taking its proper place on the Maryland campus. FDtnre Farmers of America The Future Farmers of America is an or- ganization of nearly 300,000 men found in every state, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. It was founded by Prof. Henry C. Gross- close of Virginia and became a national organi- zation in 1928. The aims of the collegiate FFA are mainly to develop competent, aggressive, rural and agricultural leadership, and to create and nurture a love of country life. The aim of the Maryland Chapter, whose advisor is Arthur M. Ahalt, is best summed up by the motto of the national FFA: " Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, living to save. " President of FFA is Monroe Stambaugh; vice-president, Roy Ridenour; secretary, J. Lloyd Shaffer; treasurer, Malvin McGana; and reporter, John Hall. Alpha Zeta HONORARY AGRICULTURAL FRATERNITY Founded at OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY in 1897 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1920 Alpha Zeta, Honorary Agricultural Frater- nity, taps its members for excellence in both curricular and campus activities. Plus these requirements, the men must know how to test milk, feed and raise prize cattle and poultry. With the election of Samuel T. Slack as president, the chapter is again taking its place in the College of Agriculture. Giving President Slack a helping hand were vice-president Robert K. Becktold; secretary John P. Hur- ley; and treasurer Melvin E. McGaha. Among Alpha Zeta ' s accomplishments in the past year was the publication of the " Chap- ter News, " concerning the war service and oc- cupations of its members and alumni. German M The German Club has been much more active this year than ever in the past. Under the able guidance of faculty advisors, Dr. Prahl and Dr. Cunz, the club held many in- teresting functions. The student officers were as follows: Donald Chaney, president; Donald Price, vice-presi- dent; Marjorie Bugh, secretary-treasurer. The year ' s main events were the Christmas party and the spring picnic at Greenbelt Lake. At the other functions a prominent member of the faculty was invited to speak on Ger- many in order to give the members a broader understanding of their subject. With their excellent start this year in in- creased membership and activities, the Ger- man Club is rapidly becoming one of the better known clubs on the campus. Daydodgers M The Daydodgers Club, the commuters own organization, carried out a full program of social and service activities during the past year. Headed by Bill Ehrmantraut, president; Lois Forrester, vice-president; Eleanor Parker, 154 secretary; and Pat Brown, treasurer, the club sponsored a ride service. Over one thousand riders and drivers were matched together from nearby areas as well as from Frederick, Balti- more, Washington, D. C, and even Alexan- dria, Va. Because of the confused schedules of the 175 members, lunchtime meetings were foregone in favor of staggered meeting times on alter- nate Mondays and Tuesdays. The Monday and Tuesday groups, although chairmanned by different officers, acted together to promote the welfare of the commuters. Tommy Cochrane, social chairman, aided by Jean Robertson, publicity chairman, for- mulated a variety of social events, the first of which was a ' cider and donut ' dance held in November for all students. The Ambassador Hotel pool was the site of several winter swimming parties, and informal get-togethers in the Student Lounge helped daydodgers meet their fellows. The Daydodgers entered teams in the foot- ball, basketball, and baseball intramurals, while the Daydodger coeds participated in the hockey, bowling, volleyball and basketball tournaments. Psychology Club Under the spirited leadership of President Jane Grigsby, members of the Psychology Club heard a series of lectures given by well- known personalities in the field of psychology. The first celebrity to address this club was the University ' s own Dr. Jenkins. His subject was the set-up within the psychology department at Maryland. He pointed out that some of the ablest men in the psychological field find it necessary to come to Washington from time to time, and that he would be glad to extend to any of these gentlemen the club ' s invitation to spend some time in College Park. The first guest to speak to the club was the eminent statistician. Dr. Bingham, who treated with the selection of Regular Army personnel from the ranks of the Reserves at the close of World War II. Supporting oflBcers of the club were: Anne Engle, vice-president; Carolyn Bryan, secretary; and Edna Stark, treasurer. Cosoiopolitan rinb Shortly after the fall semester commenced the Cosmopolitan Club re-elected oflBcers and launched a studied program for bringing cul- tural events to the Maryland campus and af- fording students an opportunity to attend cultural activities in Washington. At each of the bi-monthly meetings, Joan Ryan, the club ' s resourceful Vice-president- Program Chairman was able to present per- formers and lecturers in the worlds of music, ballet, and theatre. Miss Evelyn Davis, cele- brated modem dance teacher, was one of the many guests of the club. Among the other outstanding services ren- dered by the Cosmopolitan Club was the pro- curement of tickets to events in Washington. Early in the fall, the organization made avail- able to its members fifty season tickets for the concert series of the National Symphony. The great ' coup ' of the Cosmopolitan Club was when it, in conjunction with Dr. Zeeveld of the English Department, sponsored a spjecial showing to an all-Maryland house of the tremendously popular British film, " Henry the Fifth. " Jack Call, Club President, was active in the Maryland Cultural Committee, which brought such fine events to the school as Thomas L. Thomas, the National Symphony, and the Salezado Harp Ensemble. Kent Vehofver, Activity Chairman, kept the members posted 155 as to coming attractions in the cultural circles, while Jean Hahner kept the Treasurer ' s ac- counts. Mary Pat Smith was Secretary, Nancy Clapp, Reporter, and Nancy Meredith, Publicity Chairman. Modern Dance M The Dance Club is a relatively new organi- zation on the Maryland campus. Most women interested in the recreational and potential possibilities of dancing have become active members of the club. The girls strive to attain the graceful freedom of expression that is so vital to this creative art. Annually, the Dance Club and its members participate in Maryland ' s May Day celebra- tion. Students look forward to the colorful panorama upon the Administrative green. This year the club spent most of its time preparing the Annual Modem Dance Recital. Outstanding performances were the interpre- tations of sleep walking and the Bug Dance. Much credit for the succ ess of this venture be- longs to President Sally Davis. Nancy Kin- caid ably served as vice-president, Suzanne Parker was secretary, and MilUcent Freishi acted as treasurer. Ballroom Dance OInb The Ballroom Dance Club, organized this year for teaching the intricacies of foxtrot, waltz, samba, and jitterbug, proved to be a thriving social organization. The St. Patrick ' s Day dance sponsored by the club was a great success. Through the year, various news- papers and periodicals became interested in the activities of the club, and a number of articles appeared about it. Next year will give the club a fresh start. many new numbers, and an already estab- lished precedent of enjoyable fimctions. These will all make for a successful year. Terrapin Trail Clnb This year ' s Terrapin Trail Club has carried through its purpose of oflFering to students out- side activities in the way of hiking, boating, bicycling, and short overnight trips. Under President Sam Brooks ' leadership, a pleasant September afternoon saw the club ' s first hike. The Great Falls hike was next, and in Jan- uary the Burnt Mills hike included a snowball battle royal. Many excellent photographs taken en route testify to the good time that was enjoyed by all. Spring came, and with it the Shenandoah Valley week end, which was clearly the cUmax of the year ' s hiking season. The club included twenty-five members. Block and Bridle M In 1924 a group of students organized The Livestock Club, for which a constitution was drawn up and a definite program of activities was established. In 1938, this club petitioned the National Block and Bridle Club for mem- bership, and was admitted in November of that year. The activities of the Block and Bridle Club included the Annual Fitting and Showing Contest, the Annual Student Livestock Judg- ing Contest, open to all students of agriculture, and the Annual Barn Dance, sponsored by the Agriculture Council. Block and Bridle was forced to become in- active in 1942, but it was reactivated in Sep- tember of 1945. Steps have been taken to renew the former annual affairs of the club. IM Ridiflg Clnb MM The Riding Club sponsored a complete and varied list of activities this year under the direction of its new officers: Ann Fennessey, president; BiU Stevens, vice-president; Mar- garet Aitcheson, secretary; Betty Wilson, treasurer; Sally Puryear, corresponding sec- retary; and Suzanne Meyers, social chairman. The Club ' s social year was opened with a fall dance held in the Meadowbrook Cabin. The autumn season brought interest in hay- rides, moonUght rides, and fox hunts. For the first time in several years, the Riding Club en- tered a float in the Homecoming parade. The feature of a real stage-coach made theirs a unique attraction. In May, the second Maryland University Horse Show since the end of the war was given. A challenge trophy was offered by the University for the jumper championship and another donated by the Maryland Foxhunters ' Association for the Hunter Championship. Propeller CInb The Propeller Club is composed of American citizens, at home and abroad, who are inter- ested or engaged in the improvement of mari- time activities. Port No. 99 was chartered on the Campus of the Maryland University, November 25, 1946. Dr. J. F. Frederick, Professor of Trade and Commerce, is sponsor and faculty advisor. The Maryland Port is composed of students receiving instruction in maritime architectiu-e, engineering commerce, transportation, eco- nomics, and business administration. Officers were: President, Clark Luther; First Vice-president Walter Longenecker, Jr.; Second Vice-president Charles Vychopin; and Secretary-Treasurer Charles Keye. The Art Club this year, while under the watchful eye of its advisor and head of the Art Department, Mr. Siegler, was promoted and carefully organized by Bob Scott, presi- dent, Charles Thompson, vice-president, Rich- ard Waltam, treasurer, and Jane Soden, sec- retary. Posters and wall decorations for our campus social events are only a small part of the out- ward manifestations of their talents. The Club endeavors to delve more deeply into the ac- tual study of their aesthetic avocation through discussions and lectures at their bi-weekly meetings. Within the Club itself, sketching and painting devotees have a free reign in the ' medium ' of their choice, namely paint, oUs, charcoal, or pen and ink, giving all a wide field in which to express themselves. Tours to nearby art galleries in Washington and Balti- more round out the program for the year. International Relations Olub Although the International Relations Club was late getting started this year, it made great strides with even bigger ideas for the future. The IRC is devoted to the ideal of unanimity between nations, and its members feel that such a goal can be accomplished only by an understanding of the social and econo- mic problems that beset the world. Regularly scheduled discussion meetings were held to re- view these problems and generally featured a faculty member serving as moderator and ad- visor on the particular problem discussed. In addition to their own discussion and debates, the Club sponsored and obtained prominent speakers for the benefit of the entire student body. Members of the IRC were appointed to take part in the Social Economic Council es- 157 tablished between universities of the Balti- more-Washington area. This year the Club, under the auspices of the Political Science Department, was directed by C. Rogers Hall, president. Mgioiis Life Cooiinittee The Religious Life Committee is composed of student and faculty representatives who guide religious activities on the Maryland campus. Aside from arranging for the obser- vance of religious hoUdays, members of the committee supervised the traditional playing of Christmas music from the tower of Morrill Hall. Presidents of the campus religious organiza- tions form the student religious council. The faculty committee consists of RosaUe Leslie, chairman. Dr. Charles White, Dr. Wesley Gewehr, Harlan Randall, James Reid, Marion Johnson, Edna McNaughton, and Arthur Hamilton. It is generally recognized that an interfaith chapel, to be used as a center for interdenom- inational religious activities, will be an asset to the University. Accordingly, plans have been drawn up for its construction. Oanterbnry Club The Canterbury Club, under the leadership of the Revs, Mr. Acton and M r. Orth, serves as a means of bringing together the approxi- mately 1000 Episcopal students of Maryland and provides for them many interesting and informative lectures and activities. The proj- ects sponsored by the Club are of world-wide, as well as of local importance. The Canterbury Club, with the Hillel Foundation, introduced Henrietta Jacoba Rosenberg at an Interfaith meeting. Miss Rosenberg, a student from the Netherlands, was active in anti-Nazi underground work, and at the meeting spoke on behalf of the need of the students in Europe. Among the many interesting Canterbury Club speakers was the Rev. Dr. H. J. Matthews from St. Marylebone Parish, London, England. The Rev. Mr. Matthews is rector of the famous Church which witnessed the marriage of oxu poet Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett. Another matter of local interest was the trip taken by the Club to the well-known Washing- ton Cathedral in the District of Columbia. The meetings of the Canterbury Club were congenial and entertaining under the influence of its capable leaders: President Fred DeMarr, Vice-president Laura Petrone, Secretary Marion Graham, and Treasurer Eleanor Higgons. Presbyterian M Under the able leadership of its new advisor, Ruth Hoegue, the Presbyterian Club has be- come one of the most active of the Maryland religious organizations. The members of the Club are interested in world-wide current events and the effect of these events upon religious life. In connection with this interest a " Heifer Fund " has been sponsored by the Presbyterian members at Maryland. With the money collected, a Heifer will be purchased and shipped overseas to aid in rehabilitating the depleted dairy herds of war-torn Europe. When Grace Enfield yielded her gavel to Bob Jones, the new executive committee be- gan its new term. President Bob was aided by Vice-president Marilyn Cannon, Treasurer Thomas Grimes, and Secretary Jean Stevens. 158 The interest shown by the members, the ex- cellent guidance displayed by the oflScers, along with the encouragement and aid given by the Rev. Mr, W. K. Custis made the Presbyterian Club one of the most commend- able organizations on the Maryland campus. Wesley Clnb The Wesley Club provides religious and social fellowship for the Methodist students on campus. Rev. Mr. James T. Bard was Chaplain and Carol Haase, President. Other oflBcers were Charlotte Conway, vice-presi- dent; Shirley Knibbs, secretary; and Janet Huddle, treasurer. The activities of the Club were greatly ex- panded this year; in addition to the regular meetings, several deputation teams were or- ganized and sent to various Methodist Churches throughout the state to conduct meetings; a Bible study group was begun; and a bowKng team started. The Club, together with the Lutheran Club, sponsored Protestant Church services on the campus on Sunday mornings as well as Vesper Services each Sunday night in Dormitory C. Lntheran Stodent Association The Lutheran Student Association had a well-roimded year ' s program acquainting its members and friends with all phases of campus religious life. In addition to the bi-weekly meetings, the Club held four Lutheran Student Commission Services. Mary Ellen Wentz, President of LSA, re- ceived the B ' nai B ' rith scholarship last year for outstanding contributions to the religious life on campus. Edward Wareham held the position of Vice- president, Marvel Maxwell recorded minutes, and Dorothy Dansberger handled the club ' s funds for the current year. The Rev. Mr. C. W. Sprenkel acted as advisor to the organi- zation. LSA on the Maryland campus is af- filiated with the Lutheran Student Association of America. Baptist Stndent Ilnion The Baptist Student Union, under the lead- ership of President Marie Savage, was an im- portant campus group. As in years past, BSU activity centered on the Noon Devotional Meetings, student speakers, outside religious leaders, Bible quizzes, and panel discussions. Two major functions were the Fall and Spring Retreats, held at Camp Chopawamsic, Virginia, in conjunction with other BSU groups in the Washington area. The Monday Night Bible Discussion Group met at the First Baptist Church in Washington. Skating parties, outdoor socials, and many informal get-togethers provided frequent op- portunity for fellowship and fun. " The Holi- day at Hitching Post Hill, " held during Christmas vacation at a nearby plantation, was an all-day affair in authentic Southern style. Other officers of the group were: Marian Ball, vice-president; Hank Bausum, secretary; Charlotte Spitzer, treasurer; Ruth Bancroft and Ginny Amoss, social chairmen; Bart Dorr, program director. Newman H The Newman Club, serving as a means of providing a reUgious and social bond among Catholic students on the University of Mary- land campus, elected Bob Grogan president. 159 Serving with the president were Vic Turyn as vice-president, Mary Heinhart as recording secretary, Barbara Ostermayer as correspond- ing secretary, Eleanor Moore as treasurer, and Jean McKeown as historian. One of the major projects carried out by the club was the holding of a weekly class in Apolegetics. Under the direction of Father Hugh Ratigan, O.F.M., the classes proved a great success and inspiration to those attend- ing. Renewing activities which had been dropped during the war years, the club sent representa- tives to the various youth conferences held throughout the year. Of special interest were the meetings of the Newman Federation Con- ference of the Maryland area held at the Uni- versity of Pennsylvania, and the conferences held at Catholic and Georgetown Universities. The highhghts of the religious program for the year were the retreats, conducted during Lent for the spiritual benefit of the students at the University, and the Mother ' s Day Mass. The Mass, held at the outdoor shrine of the Franciscan Monastery, was followed by a Communion breakfast for the club members and their guests. The active social program included the in- formal ' Snowball ' dance given in the Old Gym-Armory. The annual picnic, which was held in the spring at Greenbelt Lake, climaxed a successful year. Hillel Foundation The Hillel Club, one of the outstanding re- ligious organizations on campus, unites its members in the common bond of religion and provides for them an extensive program of cultural and religious work. It is one of 142 such foundations established in various col- leges throughout the United States and Canada. Presiding over the Wednesday evening forums, socials, and classes at the Hillel House were the club ' s capable president, Philip Glazer, and its pastor. Rabbi Meyer Green- berg. Bernice Sachs served as vice-president and Paula Revitz as secretary. The Hillel House is open during the day to students of all faiths for reading, studying, and meeting friends. Among smaller groups that assemble regularly at the Hillel House are the discussion and debating groups, and a grad- uate group. An outstanding activity of this enterprising organization is the publishing of a newspaper for those of Jewish faith. Being deeply interested in the fostering of religious tolerance, the club has fostered sev- eral interfaith activities. On one occasion the Hillel Club members met with the Canter- bury Club to hear Miss Henrietta Rosenberg of the Netherlands speak on her experience during the war as an underground worker. 160 Edgett, Stephenson, Speaker, Baker The Inn — Winter Setting When I get my own home — Junior Class session Queen Lynn accepts W ally ' s flowers 161 Prom goers enjoy novelty hand piece Promenade royalty The " Gay Receiver Randy Brooks Inc. 162 G © C Pi Delta Epsilon First row: Chickering, Conlon, Coplin, DeMarr, Everson, Ewell.

I SENIOR CLASS €. he present inevitably becomes the past and any history is only a collection of once active present happenings. L iooking back over the last four years, the Class of ' 47 sees many events and many changing situations that make its history at the University of Maryland a distinctive one. In 1943, the newcomers became acquainted at the annual freshman mixer held in the Coliseum. Homecoming that year provided the first big college weekend of our frosh who succeeded in winning the traditional tug-of- war down by the Paint. Rats and rabbits no longer, they celebrated by attending the Presi- dent ' s reception which marked the opening of the new armory. Watching many of its mem- bers go off to war, the freshman class partici- pated wholeheartedly in the Red Cross and Savings Bonds Programs sponsored by the Victory Council. March saw the KoUege and Khaki Ball, given for the departing Army Specialized Training students. The Student Union, the now-powerful I.S.A., was organized in April. Classes from the UNRRA moved onto the campus in May. The Class of ' 47 continued as sophomores, and the Diamondback featured news of class members overseas in its column, " Serving Uncle Sam. " In March, 1945, sophomores and their friends read eagerly the Diamond- back ' s Extra which told of Glenn L. Martin ' s gift for a school of aeronautical engineering. During the following year the Men ' s League and the Old Line were revived. The Rossborough, oldest club on campus, was reorganized and later on in March presented Bob Chester with its first function in three years. The ROTC resumed its 4-year status and the Student Board became once again the Student Government Association. Highlighting the social season of 1945-46 the Junior Promenade was held for the first time since the famed ' trolley car ' prom in 1943. The Class of ' 47 engaged Bobby Byrne and his orchestra for this formal dance which was held in the main ballroom of the Willard Hotel. The announcement that Bert Wil- liams had been chosen Miss Terrapin was made during the evening. Class elections were held in the spring, and officers for the senior year were elected as follows: Charlie Brock, president; Susan Weak- ley, vice-president; Louisa White, secretary; Bert Williams, treasurer; Jean Roby, histor- ian; Pat Bennington, Emory Harman, social chairmen. Early in the fall the Senior Class met to outline its plans for the year. Climaxing an eventful four years, the Senior Banquet and Prom were held in the Statler Hotel ' s Congressional Room. The baccalaureate service and gradua- tion ceremonies provided the final solemn functions of the Class of ' 47. 191 The Stndent Governinent Association SGA faces new problems with increased enrollment . . . social functions and cultural programs instituted . . . old Gym made into Student Recreation Hall Under the competent leadership of Roger Cohill, the SGA started the pendulum swing- ing in its post-war activities. The problems encountered this year were diflferent from those of previous years; it took profound thought and a great deal of energy on the part of everyone on the Council to cope with each new question. Considering the return of many veterans to school and the large student body in general, many programs of a social and cultural nature had to be carefully planned. The Student Government took care of the social end by providing a sum of money for dances to be given every Saturday night. Various organi- zations represented on the Council and others in turn sponsored one dance These affairs, were named the " All Maryland Dances. " Chuck Callegary, Social Chairman for SGA, utilized his time in making arrangements and plans for the success of these Saturday nite get-togethers. Chuck also did a superb job as chairman of the Homecoming Dance. For the cultural life the Council provided a sum of money to augment that provided by the school. The committee, including hard- workers Kyriakys and Callegary, worked with Miss Leslie and Dean Symons with beneficial results which brought to the campus such per- sons as Thomas L. Thomas. As a measure to substitute for a much needed Student Union Building, a committee from the Student Government Association was appointed to mould the old Gym into a place of recreation and relaxation for the student body. The old Gym is now called the Student Recreation Hall. March 12 was the beginning of the after-dinner dances given every Wed- nesday night. Campus orchestras were asked to provide the glide-music. During the after- noons the Recreation Hall served as a place of study for daydodgers. Early in the faU the Council moved into a new oflSce in the basement of the Ad. Building. After picture hanging and furniture moving the office settled down to normal, and new projects were begun. The Council endeavored to hold oflBce hours so that students might read the minutes of SGA meetings or ask ques- tions concerning administration and student government functionings. In this way the Council hoped to draw the students closer to their controlling body. Meetings, always open to all students, saw larger attendance than in previous years. President Cohill endeavored to carry out all the points made in his campaign speeches. In March, when ' Rog ' found himself a proud father. Vice-president Jack Heise was there to take over the gavel for a few meetings. Sec- retary Portia Bowers, aside from the usual secretary ' s rituals, tried to maintain office hours and keep up with the many committees and duties in connection with student in- terest. Treasurer Phyllis Sell totaled figures and balanced books but still had time for interest in many other SGA projects. She was outstanding in the running of Freshmen elections. Other members of the SGA to aid the officers are the presidents of the Veteran ' s Club, Independent Students Union, Interfra- ternity Coimcil, Pan-Hellenic Council, Men ' s League, " Women ' s League, ODK, Mortar Board, and the class presidents. I 192 R.O.T.I). Under the command of Col. Harland Gris- woldjthe Maryland ROTC worked hard for the past year keeping up its honor rating and pre- paring its members for service in the armed forces. Under the guidance of Col. Griswold, a new college has been added to the campus, with the Colonel at the head as Dean. It is the College of MiUtary Science and Tactics. The new college is one of the first, if not the first, of its type in the country. It offers a degree in Military Science combined with a minor in Physical Education or one of several other related fields. The first graduates from this new college were Earl E. Batten of Wash- ington, D.C., and Robert Chelmers James of this state who received their diplomas in June ' 47. Like many new institutions, the college is small but rapidly growing with its firm foundations already laid. Reactivation has taken place for the Ad- vanced ROTC which was inactive during the war. The course leads to a commission in one of three separate branches of the armed forces. At Maryland the largest group is Infantry, followed closely by Air Corps Administration and Signal Corps. Select subjects are given in the two years it takes to complete the course, with the War Department declaring which are to be taken. Students of this advanced sec- tion of ROTC will attend a summer camp for approximately six weeks during the coming summer. Military Day was held in the spring. In- cluded in the activities were competitive matches and drills, demonstrations of tent pitching, handling of weapons and other, military specialties. This year saw the reactivation of two mili- tary fraternities on the campus. Pershing Rifles, National Fraternity, consists of Basic RTOC students who have passed qualifying examinations. For the advanced section of the ROTC there is Scabbard and Blade, consist- ing of members of the upper 10% of the class who have met requirements of the National Society. Maryland ' s ROTC Band provides much more than just marching music for the unit; it also furnishes a musical outlet for talented students. It is, however, made up of ROTC students only. Because of the exact precision required in the execution of its marching duties, the Band has to spend more than the usual amount of time in driUing. The Band, although used for other functions aside from the Military, spent most of its time playing for the imit. Credit for its pre- cision and fine playing may be given to Mr. Harold Yeager, the Band leader and a full- time member of the Military Department. The following are members of the ROTC staff: Col. Harland Griswold— P.M.S. T.; Lt. Col. Edward Minion— Infantry ROTC Oflacer; Lt. Col. Harold V. Maul— Air Officer of Air ROTC; Lt. Col. James B. Smith — Sig- nal ROTC Officer. 198 ScaUard and Blade COMPANY I THIRD REGIMENT HONORARY MILITARY FRATERNITY Founded at UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN in 1904 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1922 Scabbard and Blade, Honorary Military Fraternity open to Advanced ROTC students, was reactivated on the University of Maryland campus during this past year. Initial impetus for the move was provided by Lieutenant Colonel Edward M. Minion, head of the In- fantry ROTC, and former Cadet Colonel Henry Saylor. New initiates for Scabbard and Blade are selected from outstanding officers, and the purpose of the fraternity is to improve the standard of military education and to cement the relations between the military depart- ments of the colleges and universities in the United States. Company 1-3 will again participate in the Armistice Day ceremonies at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington with the other Scabbard and Blade Companies in the Wash- ington area. And in keeping with the progres- sive attitude the organization has always pos- sessed, the practice of awarding a medal to the most promising Basic ROTC student will be reinstituted. Pershing Rifles Tradition, honor, and strength are charac- teristic of this military fraternity which holds as its ideals the encouragement of the highest in the military profession, the promotion of American citizenship, and the furthering of scholarship and gentlemanly behavior. It has long been customary for the Pershing Rifles platoons to represent the University of Maryland in the Annual Army Day Parades in Washington, D. C. The Rifles served as guard of honor for the President of Nicaragua during his visit to a " Typical American College " in 1942. Other notables, whom they have at- tended, are ex-Secretary Ickes, Viscount Hali- fax, and Maryland ' s Herbert R. O ' Conor. Since entering the Military National in 1935 the Maryland Company has engaged in regi- mental and national competition, last winning honors in 1942 when Rivello ' s crack 20-man unit took first place at the 69th Regimental Armory, N. Y. Pershing Rifles at Maryland is a selective military fraternity whose members are chosen from the Basic ROTC unit. Before the war, this unit was one of thirty-four companies comprising the seven regiments that made up the National Fraternity. Omicron Delta Kappa SIGMA CIRCLE Honorary Leadership Fraternity Founded at WASHINGTON AND LEE UNIVERSITY in 1914 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1927 Qualifications for membership in Omicron Delta Kappa being character, scholarship, service and leadership in campus life, fellow- ship, and consecration to democratic ideals, membership in this society is the highest honor to which men students may aspire. Those tapped must have ranked in the upper thirty- five per cent in scholarship among men students in their class and college, and specifically, they must have attained distinction in one of the following five phases of college life — speech, music or dramatics, scholarship, athletics, so- 194 cial and religious affairs, or publications. To insure a balanced and representative group at all times, not more than one-third of the total number of students selected for membership at any one time may be chosen from any single field. Edward Rider was chosen to replace Ray Hesse as President and Tommy Mont was elected Vice-president. Roger Cohill, President of the Student Gov- ernment Association, and John Wright, promi- nent in athletics, were elected to membership in ODK at private initiation ceremonies con- ducted early in December. Dr. Cotterman, Dean of the Maryland faculty, was given honorary membership. In March, at the first post-war National Convention of Omicron Delta Kappa, held in Washington, members of Sigma Circle played a leading role in the preparatory planning. Persons elected to honorary membership by the Maryland circle in recent years have been the late President Roosevelt, British Viscount Halifax, Mr. Sumner Welles, former Governor Herbert O ' Conor, Major General Milton Reckord, and Rev. Peter Marshall, recently elected Senate Chaplain. Mortar Board Senior Women ' s Honorary Society Founded at SWARTHMORE COLLEGE in 1918 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1934 Outstanding women of the Junior Class are tapped on May Day for Mortar Board. This distinction, the highest any woman may re- ceive during her college years, is conferred for excellence in leadership, scholarship and ser- vice. Members of this organization do not cease activity on campus after being tapped. Among their many duties. Mortar Board participates in freshmen orientation week, the sale of chrysanthemums for Homecoming, a Smarty Party in March for eligible tappees, and the sponsoring of a Career Day in April to help all women students choose their fields of study. President Emogene Simmons served as co- editor of the Terrapin, was a member of Phi Delta Epsilon, Omicron Nu, and the Red Cross Unit. Jean Roby, vice-president, was president of the Footlight Club, president of Sociology Club, and the Sociology Honorary. Secretary of the Mortar Board, Sara Conlon, was Women ' s Editor of the " M " Book, feature editor of the Diamondback, president of Dor- mitory ' C, chairman of the food and clothes drives for overseas, and first vice-president of the Independent Students ' Association. Mar- guerite Stitley, treasurer, was president of Pan- Hell Council, president of Women ' s League, and secretary of the Student Grange and Clef and Key. Ramona Randall was treasurer of Clef and Key, member of the Student Musi- cal Activities Committee, chairman of May Day, and a member of the Women ' s Chorus. Louisa WTiite was treasurer of the Women ' s League, president of the Women ' s Recreation Association, and president of Sigma Tau Epsilon. Phi lappa Phi Honorary Scholarship Fraternity Founded at UNIVERSITY OF MAINE in 1897 Established at UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND in 1920 Standards founded on excellent scholarship necessarily limit membership in Phi Kappa Phi, Honorary Scholastic Fraternity. Mem- bers of the organization are selected twice dur- ing the school year. In the fall the top-ranking senior of each college is tapped, and in the 195 spring seniors who stand in the upper tenth of the graduating class are elected to member- ship. Rewarding fine scholarship and aiding in the development of character are the basic ideals of the fraternity. Among the benefits of membership are the associations with alumni who continue con- tacts with the University and contribute en- couragement and interest to the achievements of the active college group. Top-ranking seniors were: College of Agriculture — Malvin E. Magaha. College of Arts and Sciences — Phyllis G. Wherley College of Business and Public Administration — Muriel T. Sparkman College of Education — June Chance College of Engineering — John W. Stuntz College of Home Economics — Greeba Hof- stetter. Women ' s Leape As an integral part of the Student Govern- ment Association, the Women ' s League formu- lates and administers the rules governing the conduct of women residents on campus. The organization revises its regulations each year, under the guidance of the Dean of Women, thus hoping to eliminate any existing fallacies, and to eventually achieve a flexible, practical set of rules. The Women ' s League supports all campus drives, including the Red Cross and Commu- nity Chest Drives. It cooperates annually with the Junior Class in sponsoring the traditional May Day celebration. The Women ' s League assisted Dr. Harlan Randall and the Men ' s and Women ' s Choruses in presenting a living nativity scene and community sing just before the Christmas holidays. Officers and members of the organization are elected by the women students each spring for the following year. This year the officers directing the varied activities were Marguerite Stitely, president; Janice Garrett, vice-presi- dent; Sally Morgan, secretary; and Marion Benson, treasurer. Men ' s Leape Although not recognized by a majority of students as such, the Men ' s League is a rep- resentative body serving primarily the inter- ests of all male students. Rules of conduct and discipline for men have been set up, and it is necessary for the Men ' s League to enforce these mandates, but its main function is not disciplinary in character. Working in con- junction with the Dean of Men and having a voice in the Student Government Association, this year ' s League was instrumental in rectify- ing many existing wrongs and continued, often without notice, to serve the men students. Concrete evidence of the League ' s activity was easily obtained. The Vets ' barracks re- ceived a walk leading to the boulevard, while the building of roads and improvement of sidewalks were hastened. The inadequate supply of telephones in the VB ' s was modified and a path was constructed leading to the Dining Hall in front of Dorm 4-F. The League saw to it that the chimes of the Engineering Building were repaired, and it was one of the first groups to take constructive action on the problem of naming the new buildings on cam- pus. Executive Council officers were as follows; Sid Sterman, president; Norm Katz, vice- president; and Walter Tabler, secretary- treas- urer. Harry Dow was chairman of the Dormi- tory Council.
