Williams Leland Williams ACTIVITIES After a wartime period of inactivity, Beta Chapter of Phi Psi Fraternity at the New Bedford Textile Institute had its rebirth under the capable direction of brothers Grundy, Clark, Bradley, and Cobb in the early part of 1946. Phi Psi was the first fraternity at the Institute to resume activities during the postwar period and with the influx of students who had the necessary gualifications and desires, many of these new stud- ents became pledges and went through the usual week of penitence. The Boston convention, which was held in March of 1946, proved to be all that it had been in the years before. Merri- ment and hilarity prevailed with the usual stories of past events being told to the neophytes by the older members. We all hope that the convention that shall again be held in March of this year, shall be as succesful as last years was. Going to this years convention, shall be the seven new members that were pledg- ed this year as well as the many new students that are expected to become members during the new term. Bowling and basketball has kept the brothe rs busy this winter and Beta chap- ter was at times on the long end of the score in the various matches. It is also expected that the annual end of school blowout shall be held at some appropriate place again this year. 38 DELTA KAPPA PHI Front Row : — L. to R. — Roland Roy, Randell Sample, John Dooley, Frank Chase, Ken Mathews.

It was reacti- vated in March of 1946 by the Supreme Council consisting of Francis Tripp, John Foster, Kenneth Tripp and Elliot Board- en. The inaugural admitted eleven mem- bers to the brotherhood and the Delta Chapter became active once more. The Annual Convention was held at the Fox and Hounds Club, Boston, Mass. The Delta Chapter was well represented and a memorable time was had by all. At the beginning of the Fall Semester, a clambake was given to all Chapter mem- bers by " Flash " Carlson at his estate in 1946-1947 Marshfield. The Delta Chapter defeat- ed the Beta Chapter of Lowell in a baseball game by the score of 14-5. On Oct. 8, 1946 an open house was held for all prospective candidates, where official Navy films were shown. Smokes, drinks and refreshments were plentiful. This netted ten new active members to the brotherhood. A bowling league was inaugurated between the Phi Psi and Delta Kappa Phi in which competition was as usual very keen. The Phi Psi however went down in defeat fighting. 40 SUPERLATIVES BOY Harry Grundy James Flanagan Henry Albiez Phil Madeiros Wesley Gaddes Gordon Bradley James McQuade John Conlon Raymond Morris Lionel Amaral Harry Grundy John Dooley Frank Chase Harold Bochman Gordon Bradley Harold Houghton Walter Clark Lionel Amaral Manuel Perriera James Flanagan Walter Clark Emery Maynard Harold Bochman Walter Clark Emery Maynard James Flanagan Joseph Dauteuil John Wikfors Harold Bochman Joseph Dauteuil Most Representative Most Popular Most Likely to succeed Most Versatile Most Musical Most Temperamental Most Forgetful Most Serious Best Natured Best Dressed Most Generous Most Respected Wittiest Quietest Noisiest Most Etiicient Most Happy-go-lucky Most Talented Most Inquisitive Best Personality Best Looking Class Woli Meekest Most Active Most Loquacious Did most for Class Oldest Youngest Tallest Shortest GIRL Amelia Eaton Amelia Eaton Pierette Bougie Carolyn Dudgeon Pierette Bougie Lorraine Norwood Lorraine Norwood Helen Dexter Amelia Eaton Lois Swift Amelia Eaton Helen Dexter Amelia Eaton Helen Dexter Lois Swift Pierette Bougie Carolyn Dudgeon Pierette Bougie Pierette Bougie Amelia Eaton Lorraine Norwood Lois Swift Helen Dexter Jeanette Caron Lois Swift Amelia Eaton Helen Dexter Pierette Bougie Amelia Eaton Pierette Bougie 41 HORROR NAME NICK NAME HOBBY 1 Henry O.

The death-rate tried to increase last summer when Dudge took over life guard duties at Mattapoisett. Between Fairhaven, Textile, and New Haven, Swifty hasn ' t much time to her- self. Corn on the cobb may grow in the fields, but we have one growing at Tex- tile — N. Cobb. McQuade would rather play pool than eat his lunch at dinner hour. And Grundy with his beach wagon, every time a high wind blows he gets out the anchor. Gaddes ' jacket must be made of Cam- el Hair because there are two humps in the back. Pete Bougie will also receive a Danc- ing and Singing Diploma after all her morning routines in the locker room. WE are still wondering who Pamela is, Clark. WE are also wondering who wears the pants in Bean ' s family, but once in a while we notice Bean ' s slip showing. And what happened to Flanagan af- ter the Lowell game. REMEMBER WHEN Blondie blew out the lights in Room 8. Bradley received a letter from Mr. Walker. Grundy was extracting Fatty Acids in Soap Analysis. Clark received his fan mail. Swifty leaned on the wrong part of the loom. Bradley got two baskets in one game. Dudge, Blondie and Midge tried to get out at 3:30 P. M. Gaddes learnt out to mix H-2-SO-4 and water. Midge explained to Mr. Gourley about the visiting at the hospital. JOKES Cobb: " Would you have any open- ing for me? " Personnel Manager: Yes, but don ' t slam it on the way out. Chase: Say Mister, let me have six of those diapers. Store Clerk: There you are. That will be ninety cents for the diapers and six cents for the tax. Chase: Don ' t want any tacks, my daughter uses safety pins. Mr. Brooks: Gaddes, what do you know about nitrates? Gaddes: Not much, but I do know they are cheaper than day rates. Maynard: I took eight sittings today. Madeiros: Are you having your pic- ture painted? Maynard: No, I ' m learning how to ice skate. 46 A DAY IN THE SENIOR LAB 8.30 8.35 8.45 9.00 9.15 9.30 9.30 9.35 9.40 9.50 10.00 10.05 10.10 10.20 10.25 10.35 10.45 11.00 11.01 11.15 11.30 11.31 11.45 11.46 11.47 11.55 1.00 1.05 1.06 School day begins Chase and Gaddes show up Bradley starts working Current events discussion starts near hood Maynard enters the discussion with, — " Now when I was in the Islands " Prof. Tripp enters the lab to see that everyone is " working " ???

A collection is started for either a stop watch, a wedding, or a new born baby. The usual community sing is start- ed by Bradley. Madeiros chimes in with Grun- dy, singing Aye, Aye, Up She Goes!

Not that I ' m one to stir up trouble, but I ' ve weighed the problem on two scales, the night and day ones and the weight is still the same . . . noise, noise and more noise. You see, before I continue on in this escapage, I ' d like to tell you who I am. Well sir, I live right near the Textile Institute, too darn near, I ' m beginning to think. Just give an ear to my rout- ine if you will. I work the midnight shift and am just settled in bed when at 8 in the morning sometimes sooner the students begin to assemble about the school. " We won last night Joe, did ya hear, " someone bellows. Well if he hadn ' t heard before he sure as h has when this Palooka gets finished orating in no uncertain terms at the top of his lungs. The bell rings and ah, peace for about two minutes while the instruc- tors take roll call, and then bang. Some Joe in the Chemistry Lab has invented a new explosive that he didn ' t know when it would go off. Well he does now, and as I pick the pictures up off the floor I am just a little put out; out of mind and out of bed. The air is calm with just a hundred or so trolley cars going by my window when the Textile Engineers (a new name for those loom luggers) quietly start up a dozen looms at the same time. It ain ' t so bad and I ' m thinking I might snag a wink or two when one of the shuttles from a loom has flew loose and ends up rickashaying off my walls. I dodge it effectively as it makes mince meat out of two of my lamps and makes my vases look like the ruins of Pompeii. Then there comes a lull while I clean up the mess. The morning is over and not a bit of shut eye in sight, as at 12 o ' clock the barbarians come tearing out of the gates like vultures after a hen. Most of them hang around the dum — , I mean school, and rip every instructor in the joint up the back while eating their chow. Sleep, it would take a maniac to doze off with this gabble and I ' m not far from that stage now. You ' d think that by afternoon they ' d have tamed down, but half of them are just waking up by what happens. I get my two minutes sleep again when the teachers take roll call at 1 o ' clock. Then the jokers in the machine shop put in their five cents worth. A lathe and a grinder start noiselessly and then the rest of the machinery taciternly begins. Everything ' s fine until two guys start a friendly game of football with a piece of stock. Some idiot heaves a pass and it misses the mark, but for me it ' s a bullseye. The piece of metal flies through my window, previously broken by a Chemistry explosion. There ' s nothing left in the room to break, the other two departments took care of that, so it singles out me and raises a bump on my head twice the size of a watermelon. I drag myself outside to see if I might report some of it to the Dean, but it ' s Friday and everyone knows where he is on Friday afternoons. I sit on my steps and cry, but then I recollect that four o ' clock is not too far hence and then — peace! The last bell rings and out rumbles the caravan of hyenas call- ed students. Do they all go home, though? Naw! It ' s the last of the month so all the G. I. sponsors start a crap game, right under my window. " I ' ll fade you, " " the pot ' s mine " , bla, bla, bla. This continues till their stom- achs murmur and they know it ' s time to eat again. I gaze at the clock and it ' s pushing 7 P. M., so I eat my supper hurriedly and immediately hit the bed anticipat- ing four hours shut eye before going to work. No sooner has my head hit the pillow when a whistle blows, so long and loud that I think it ' s a raid, but no such luck. It ' s from the 3rd floor of the N. B. T. I. signifying the start of not one but two basketball games. Glassy eyed I pack my lunch and at 11 bells head for work, getting dirty looks from my fellow travellers who pre- sume I ' ve sacked it all day. Now, dear Editor, please advise me! What should I do? An Unhappy Citizen. 48 THLE BASKETBALL 1945 - 1946 BASKETBALL 1945-1946 Season ' s Record Won 13 — Lost 3 Opposing Team Opp. 1 — Alumni 2— Willamantic T.

The seasons outlook was darkened only by the lack of reserve material. The Textile quintet won the season opener from the Grads then suffered a bitter defeat at the hands of the teach- ers from Connecticut. Wentworth fell before the N. B. hoopmen, who dropped the next two in a row to Lowell. After the defeat by Lowell, the Whalers rolled through the remainder of their 16 game schedule unscathed to end the season with an 11 game winning streak still on the fire. One incident caused considerable un- rest in the middle of the season. That was the loss of Dick Riley, a stellar guard to the Navy. This was more than compensated for by the addition of Ray Foy and Elliot Horowitz to the squad. These lads came in with the new class in February. Foy, Flanagan and Wilson were the scoring threats who helped make the winning streak possible. With a good season tucked away Mr. Tripp looked forward to better things next year. 50 BASEBALL 1946 SEASON Players: Motha — Davidian — Flanagan — Walker — Bradley — Wilson Bouley — Czynota — Murphy — Madeiros — Pearson SEASON ' S RECORD N.

Opp. 21 4 10 12 3 7 4 14 7 6 Baseball was among the re-activated sports which reappeared at the New Bed- ford Textile Institute. Coach Gourley was greeted with quite a large turnout at the beginning of the season. John Motha, a Twilight League luminary was among the can- didates on the list which contained sev- eral other very promising lads such as " Art " Davidian and Jim Flanagan. The Whalers got off to a very infest and impressive start with a 21-4 victory over our ancient rival, Durfee. The whole team turned in a creditable per- formance with the hardwood and when on the field, they handled their chance quite smoothly. Since Motha fanned 15 batters in the course of the after- noon, it is quite evident that the field- ers were not overworked. Obliged to work again against Went- worth in Boston, " Big " John did not fare so well. Unable to get used to the mound, his twirling was a little below par. This combined with some very fancy fielding by the Wentworth grass patrol, precipitated the first defeat, 12- 10. A superior Lowell nine trounced the Red and Grey in a hard fought tilt. " Billy " Wilson hurled well, but the Lo- well club was packing too many guns, hence another defeat 7-3. The Sailors from Hyannis were the third team to defeat the Textile nine. Suffering desperately from complete lack of any kind of a pitcher, the millmen v ere forced to go onto the field trusting to the questionable pitching prowess of their stellar third sacker, " Art " Davidian. " Art " gets credit for a swell try, but the outcome was strictly Maritime 14-4. The Textile nine made it a clean sweep over Durfee with a 7-6 victory. This game was a close, hard-fought bat- tle with Jim Flanagan and John Motha sharing the pitching task. Although the season was not too good, it was an optimistic group who look- ed forward to a better year next sea- son. Almost all of the squad will be back, plus other additions from the in- coming classes. Motha took the pitching laurels and Davidian walked off with the batting honors with a lusty 640. 51 BASKETBALL 1946 - 1947 Front Row: — L. to R. — Manager William Aitken, " Chinky " Vanasse,, Idelio Alves, Maurice Letourneau, John Motha, Jim Flanagan, Elliot Horowitz, Dick Riley, Ray Foy.

Totals 462 607 Average pts. per game 42 55.18 The 1946-1947 season brought high hope to the old Alma-Mater; Foy, Flan- agan and Horowitz were back from the last years sguad and the armed forces had yielded Dick Riley, " Chinky " Van- asse and " Bud " Dunham, along with numerous other promising prospects. After a few weeks pre-season practice, it was an optomistic squad that plunged into a rugged 26 game schedule. The Trippmen annexed the first game from the Rhode Islanders to the tune of 40-29. Foy led the assault with 17 point while Flanagan and Riley added 8 and 7 more respectively. The season was off to a good start. 52 The Bridgewater Teachers fell before the high-flying millmen by a 65-39 ver- dict. In this offensive fracas, Foy hit the strings with 20 counters to again pace the winners. Flanagan and Dun- ham did the share with 17 more between them, while " Reliable " Riley was a tire- less worker in the backcourt. Revenge was sweet when the highly- touted Willamantic club was added to the list of vanguished. Foy again grab- bed scoring honors with 19 points, with Jim Flanagan getting 9 more. The of- fensive game netted 55 points while great defensive play limited the high scoring teachers to 44. The trip to Fitchburg brought the un- happy end to the winning streak at 14 games. Displaying complete reversal of form in the second half, the Red and Grey were able to score only 9 points. This fact combined with too much height among the teachers brought about the first defeat 34-G2. Defeating Lowell 52-45 on their own floor took some of the sting out of the previous defeat. Foy again led the attack with 15 points, but was pressed hard by Flanagan who tallied 13. This was the first time that the locals have beaten the team from Lowell in 20 years. A bad first half in Durfee proved cost- ly; after trailing by a considerable score in the first half, the Whalemen finally found the range, only to be nosed out 41-44. Devitt and Booth were the " big guns " for the winners with 27 counters be- tween them. Riley and Vanasse were high for the losers with 8 points apiece. Mass. Maritime was the next victim of the New Bedford club. The millmen showed their expected power while roll- ing over the Middies 51-34. As usual, Foy led the parade with 15 points, but Letourneau was close behind with 14. The Trippmen made it a clean sweep over Lowell by virtue of a 43-23 victory in the Maxfield St. Gym. Still on the scoring bandwagon were Ray Foy with 17 markers and Flana- gan, Dunham and Vanasse with 14 more. Against Alumni, the Textile guintet " blew the lid off " and set a new scor- ing record with a 112-53 victory. This is the first time that a Textile Club has passed the century mark. Flanagan was in the limelight with 24 tallies, while Foy and Silvia combined for 32 more. Textile won a closely played contest in the next game from Burdett College 55-45 to keep a new winning streak go- ing. Foy was best for the winners with 20 counters while Dunham garnered 11 more. The Millmen made it a clean sweep over Bridgewater by virtue of a 58-45 victory on the teachers floor. It was a close, hard fought tilt which saw the Trippmen " turn it on " in the last canto to win going away. Again Foy was the big point getter of the evening for the New Bedfordites with 24 markers while Riley and Van- asse turned in reputable games on the floor. Smith was best for the losers with 14 points. The contest at Andover proved to be the most exciting game of the sea- son. At the end of the regulation time, the score was tied at 56 all. After the first overtime, it stood at 70 all. The end of the second overtime saw the Whalers emerge from the closest game of the season victorious by a single point, 76-75. This was the first defeat for the Andover Quintet. Foy and Letourneau were potent for the Red and Grey with 29 and 20 points respectively. Brooks led the vanguished with 22. The Textile hoopmen stretched a new win streak to 7 games with a 51-38 win over Wentworth at the Boston Gardens. Still Foy led the millmen with 18 mark- ers and Riley was after him with 15. The Rhode Island College of Phar- macy dropped a very one sided tilt to the Tech. guintet by 66-18 margin. Flanagan, Vanasse and Foy led the scoring by combining for 48 points. The opponents proved to be very impotent. 53 Hofstra College of Long Island brought the winning ways of the Tripp aggrega- tion to an abrupt halt with an 86-40 vic- tory. The New Yorkers were heavy favorites and they proved their worth. The New Bedford ace was held to 16 tallies, while Mills of the winners was collecting 27. Gordon College was the next victory for the New Bedford club. The home team got back on again with a 61-48 victory in which Foy again grabbed scoring honor with 24 points. The Providence College Reserves nip- ped the Textile club the next time out in a close tilt which ended 51-45. Flanagan was high for the losers with 13 markers while Foy was only able to collect 12. St. George and Modliszews- ski were high for the winners with 10 apiece. The Millmen dropped another game to the classy Becker club in Worcester. The highly-rated Becker five proved too much for the Red and Grey as they handed them their fifth defeat in 18 starts, 36-57. Kackiela was the bright spot for the winners with 28 points, as Foy and Flanagan were held to 22 in all. Durfee Tech. made it a clean sweep over our team by virtue of a bitterly contested victory. After leading at half time, 32-26, the Trippmen faltered in the second half and big " Russ " Booth prov- ed to be too much as he poured through 30 points to see his team victorious. Flanagan and Foy were high for the losers with 14 and 13 counters respec- tively. LOOKING AHEAD IN SPORTS With the prospect of a degree being awarded in the very near future, it nat- urally follows that sports also may bene- fit by this very worthy advancement. It seems quite probable that the award- ing of a degree will attract more stu- dents, and therefore induce the expan- sion of the athletic program. Already there is a rumor concerning the possi- bility of a football team next fall. This decision is, of course, pending approval by the board of trustees. We also hope that other sports will return soon to the New Bedford Textile Institute; those which have been miss- ing for quite some time, like soccer, golf and tennis. I, personally, am of the opinion that the participation in some sport helps build character and develops sports- manship, and prepares the individual for the most difficult contest of all, life. 54 »() 0«»()- ll 04 I " 0»i ' «»n«»i).a B .n«B -ii«» l .«»i).Mk«4 »o i «»ii4 TO COLORISTS 4 % mssting IMS maw PROBLEMS in the selection and appli- cation of dyestuffs poses a series of challenges for coJorists in the textile, leather, and paper ftefds.

REVERE TEXTILE PRINT ROLLS A New Bedford Product Famous For A Hundred Years For more than a century the Taunton-New Bed- ford division of Revere Copper and Brass In- corporated has been making textile print rolls. As a result of this long experience the Revere organization is in a unique position to know and understand practical textile printing problems and how to meet them with rolls best adapted to give efficient, economical service. Textile print roll requirements are severely ex- acting. The copper must be homogeneous, free from imperfections, -impurities, hard spots, strata, blow holes. It must be evenly, precisely tem- pered, sufficiently ductile to be " picked up " by the engraver ' s tool, yet sufficiently hard to en- able the edges of the engraving to stand, without becoming rounded or burred, through long service. The rolls must be perfectly concentric; they must be straight within close tolerance limits ; they must be strong enough to drive a heavy print- ing cylinder by friction ; tough enough to with- stand repeated pushing on and off mandrell ; and must have the smoothness and texture required to prevent the edges of the engraving from being eroded by the " doctor " blades. The standard, most economical, roll is the solid wall copper roll. Rolls of this type can be re- peatedly re-engraved, the old engraving being turned off. An average size solid wall copper roll should permit at least 25 such turn-offs, thus affording 26 new engraving surfaces during its life. Also available are cheaper rolls, " re-built " by drawing new copper tubes over cores consisting of old turned-down rolls. However, these are more likely to cause trouble, and in the end are definitely more expensive than the solid wall rolls. Revere specialists with many years of experience in this field are at your service to assist you in specifying and obtaining rolls best adapted to serve your individual requirements. Revere ability to render capable service of this kind is perhaps best attested by the fact that a large proportion of all textile print rolls in use through- out the United States today are of Revere make.
