History of The New Bedford Textile Institute In 1895, under a special act of the Massachusetts Legislature, any city in Massachusetts having 450,000 or more spindles in operation was in a position to organize a corporation whose objective would be the establishing and maintaining of a textile school. This act of 1895 led the way to the founding of the New Bed- ford Textile Institute, now commemorating its fiftieth anniversary. On appropriations made by the City of New Bedford and the Commonwealth, construction began in the Fall of 1898, and in the Summer of the following year the building was completed. It may be well to note that it was the first in the country to be designed and created for a textile school. The formal opening of the school was on October the 14th, 1899, followed by instruction two days later. The enrollment consisted of 11 day students and 183 evening students. In 1900, the first class was graduated, for at that time, the regular course was completed in one year. This prevailed for a few years, and later, the course was extended to three years. Owing to an increase in enrollment and a demand for more floor space, addi- tions to the school were made in 1901 and 1905. This furthered the boundary of the school to Maxfield Street. On completion of these additions, a knitting, a dyeing and a mechanical department supplemented the existing ones. As New Bedford itself progressed, so did the school, for again in 1911, another addition was built. The site of this project was north of the original building. To date, this building is being utilized by the Mechanical, Chemistry and Designing- Departments. Through the years as the floor space of the institute was increased, up-to-date and additional equipment was installed, to such an extent that it had been ac- knowledged that no average individual mill was equipped with as many different types of textile machinery as was the school. In the Summer of 1915 dyeing equip- ment valued at $10,000 was installed, and in the same year an electrical laboratory was added. These are but few of the factors which made New Bedford Textile Institute known throughout the world. l S J On July 1, 1918, the school became a state institution, but was still maintained by appropriations made by the state and city together. As a matter of interest and something of which all members and the Alumni can boast, there was mentioned in 1921 that New Bedford Textile Institute was considered the best equipped cotton spinning school in America. This statement was in the official report of a committee of Lancashire Cotton Manufacturers, sent by Lord Leverhulme of England to tour America. Necessity demanded further expansion of the school in 1923. This last ad- dition to date was erected on Maxfield Street, west of the building constructed in 1905. The cotton yarn preparation and weaving departments made use of the first two floors and the third was utilized for a gymnasium. As the years rolled by, the Purchase Street edifice of learning was serving the textile industry by giving to it men with great capabilities, but it was learned that the women, too, had a place in tin ' s field, so in 1940, a regular course for girls was inaugurated. In February 1942, during the World War II, the school aided the emergency in the authorization by the trustees, of extra curriculum courses. These offered training in nutrition and food analysis and the training of girls in the machine shop. With the end of the war in 1945. many veterans turned toward a better edu- cation for themselves, and New Bedford Textile Institute received a good share of them, to such an extent, that the present enrollment is the greatest in the history of the school. In January 1946, the name of the school was changed from New Bedford Textile School to New Bedford Textile Institute in order to differentiate it from a school which demanded lower requirements. In preceding years, many regarded it as a type of high school; needless to say it was not. The curriculum at present is being supplemented with subjects that will lead toward obtaining degrees, for in May 1947, Governor Bradford approved an act, authorizing the trustees to grant degrees in textile, chemical, and mechanical engineering. It is just a matter of time until the proposed becomes a reality of the near future. In this year, 1948, the Institute will celebrate its golden jubilee. Arrangements have been made and invitations to its alumni have been mailed. Without question, the celebration will be one that will be remembered in time to come, for New Bed- ford Textile Institute will always be ready to serve industry as has been evidenced by its contributions, not to America alone, but to the world at large. ABRAM BROOKS tn Appreciation The first part of 1948 saw the retirement from the New Bedford textile Institute, of a man, who for many years has been considered one of the most- authoritative sources of information on Organic Chemistry in this section. He took a special course at the New Bedford High School, the night course at the Textile Institute, and finally the day course at Textile. During the first world war, Mr. Grimshaw, an instructor here at the time, recommend- ed that Mr. Brooks be given one of the vacated positions. About this Mr. Brooks says, " I accepted the position, although I was somewhat doubtful of being able to do a good job; a feeling that I have held to the present time. " There is no doubt in the minds of the many students that have come under his influence, but that he has done a very good job. So, Mr. Brooks, for your 29 years of faithful and fruitful service to the Institute, we, the Class of 1948, respectfully dedicate this page to your well-deserved retirement.

Liee. Allan Ashley — What hidden quality is it that we can ' t see what causes this gen- tleman to be heaved from Art ' s place ones a week ? William Boucher — Why does a future race driver become associated with toy trains ? T. Bradley — The only man in the history of drafting that is doing 5 drawings a day. We hope he makes the schedule. W. Condon — Oh! That familiar ripping noise as he tore up another. C. Desjardins — Remember the first time he brought his new truck. It was raining, so he said that it wouldn ' t get out again until ' the weather cleared. Since then he hasn ' t gotten it out of the garage because the snow is piled so high. R. Gates — You can always tell where this young gentleman spent the nite before by the time of bis arrival in the morn- ing. N. Gomes — Our supply man for paper.

It doesn ' t take long for a group of six girls to become well acquainted. Thus, our first year Textile Technology class received an early start in making this a memorable year of solid " enjoyment. Somehow, we seemed to acquire an art for making fun out of our school work and getting amazing results. It was only a short time before we became adjusted to the fact that the many dark and dreary geared monsters were cards, pickers, and spinning frames. Soon we were fascinated by the dis- covery that we could operate a loom and tie that complicated weaver ' s knot skill- fully. Those unforgetable Wednesday morn- ing " mike " lab periods were a better hen session than any sewing circle could provide. Nothing was ever allowed to interfere with our work, yet there was always ample time to discuss latest movies, mutual acquaintances, popular song hits, and I must not omit the male population of the school. Beyond a word of doubt, Mr. Gourley often expected to witness hair pulling, teeth gnashing debacles arising from our heated arguments in the Rayon Testing lab. " It is silk! " " No, it ' s nylon! " " No, it can ' t be, it doesn ' t burn like either of those. " Despite these slight differences, friend- ship always emerged the victor. The first half of the year sped swiftly by and before we knew it, mid-year exams had arrived. This means two weeks ' of intensive study; the results of which were rather satisfactory. The second semester terminated our pleasant chemistry lab periods. Warp preparations and Dyeing were then added to our program. Aside from the regular curricular studies, we also found enjoyment in teaching each other the various dance steps and songs. There was never a dull moment during lunch period at the girls lounge. The numerous blissful moments we ex- perienced both within and without the portals of Tech during the past year will be a long cherished memory.

The purpose of the Inter-Fraternity Council is clearly brought forth in this quotation from the Preamble to its Constitution : " The Inter-Fraternity Council was founded on October 1, 1947 and or- ganized for the purpose of advancing social welfare and promoting friend- ly feeling amongst Sororities and Fraternities of the New Bedford Tex- tile Institute. " To achieve these aims the Council has held monthly meetings of its members. These consist of the President and two other representatives of each Sorority and Fraternity and the Faculty Advisor, Mr. Edward Dupre. The meetings have been informal and chairmanship has rotated among the presidents of the four repre- sented groups. Such situations, as correlation of pledging and individual organiza- tions planned activities, have been cleared up through the Council to prevent much duplication of effort and to preserve the amicable spirit evidenced by joint smokers and attendance at each other ' s functions. Joint activities have included a Pre-Lenten Smoker at the Canadian Club and two Inter-Frat Dances at the New Bedford Hotel. These have been successful and may well become yearly events. The Council has also made efforts to establish a school newspaper. As the Council and the members individually gain experience through co-oper- ative action and the mutual consideration, a stronger voice in school social and fraternal affairs can be looked forward to. It ' s effectiveness depends upon the backing each Sorority and Fraternity member gives to his representatives and the matters proposed by the Council. 52 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE fRAURNITIES DELTA KAPPA PHI FRATERNITY First Row, 1. to r. — M.

The Delta Chapter officers were instrumental in the setting up and inaugur- ation of an Inter-Frat Council, whose function it is to maintain harmonious rela- tionship between the fraternities. The annual convention in May of 1947 was held at the University Club in Boston, Massachusetts, with many members in attendance. Minutes taken at the convention indicated future expansion of the chapter in wide scope, both in members of active chapters, and new chapters. Open House held October 17th. 1947, was in keeping with the expansion indicated at the convention. Initiations and enrollment into the brotherhood was bestowed on many new candidates. A most successful Christmas party was held in Carpenter ' s Hall, New Bedford. Mass., prior to the Christmas holiday, with 92 in attendance. Mr. George Walker, Principal of the institute was the guest speaker. THE FABRICATOR, 194 8 55 PHI PSI BETA FRATERNITY GRAND COUNCIL OFFICERS President — Harold G. Wood Exec. — Harold H.

Re-activated only the year before, we are now up to and hope soon to pass even our good pre-war standing. Early in March most of the members, including all new members attended the annual New England Convention in Boston. Third degrees were bestowed on the new members, a get-acquainted session followed and the affair came to an end with a fine banquet and a few drinks. Everyone then departed for home with a full stomach and warm glow in their cheeks. A raffle aided in sending V. Dionne and J. Service to the National Convention at Charlotte, N. C. last May. Both boys reported a grand and educational time was had. Beta took first honors in an exhibition of work done in the various schools in which our chapters are located. The prize was a gold placque and a check for $100 given by Brother Walter Dillard and The Pomona Mfg. Co. In the latter part of May, Luke ' s Lodge was the locale of the annual " Beta Blowout " . A fine meal, dancing and speeches were followed by an informal social hour in the lounge. Here, with some of New Bedford ' s greatest story-tellers taking part, jokes and stories were unfolded that were just what the doctor ordered to round out an evening of good times. December was open house month and Phi Psi came through with a most en- joyable one at Carpenter ' s Hall, with 125 members and interested guests. A pro- gram of short speeches was followed by motion pictures more amusing than educa- tional. Refreshments rounded out the evening of fun. Plans for another bigger and better year are underway. A Fraternity house for our chapter stands at the head of a long list of activities. Various plans for raising money have been presented and are being considered. With the bids ready to go out and the conventions rolling around again, we are looking forward to the same bright finish as last year and an even better year to come.

Installation of officers took place at a dinner meet- ing at DeTata ' s Restaurant. April- ' Beta Beehive " the chapter newspaper was resumed and issues appeared monthly containing interviews of the Faculty members and news of Frater- nity and school significance. May — Sigma Phi Tau members participated in the Inter-Frat Dance held at the New Bedford Hotel. June — At the close of exams the members dispersed to various countries and ac- tivities. Two returned to France and Mexico. Others home to Brooklyn, etc. Some to work and others really had a vacation. September — The return to school life occupied the members and was the only form of activity. October — The formation of the Inter-Fraternity Council received a share of help and co-operation from Sigma Phi Tau. 58 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE November — Pledging bids were issued to 10 men and their period of ' ' ordeal " did not involve many hardships. At one point the tables were turned by their innocent offering of Feenamint for the required Chicklets. December — A Saturday night party was held at Carpenter ' s Hall prior to the Christmas vacation which dispersed the members again. Their " reunion " at the Grand Council Dance was foiled by a rare New York blizzard. 1948 January — An open dance was held at the Community Center. Members of the other fraternities and young people from town attended. The Winter Frolic was a sort of last fling before Mid-Year Exams. February— Pledges were initiated at a private session and their " ride " following will be long remembered. Activities in their behalf also included a Sunday night party, at Carpenters ' Hall and their formal installation at the follow- ing meeting. March — Ten men attended the National Convention held in Xew York at the McAlpin Hotel during the Spring Vacation. Sigma Phi Tau members attended the Inter-Frat Dance held at the New Bedford Hotel.

The first business meeting- of the Phi Zeta Sigma Sorority was held the second week of school to welcome the new members. The regular procedure of sending bids to the Freshman girls was not observed this year due to the limited number of female students. Instead all were invited to join and in return everyone accepted the invitation. This boosted the total membership to thirteen. At the second egular meeting the following officers were elected: President — Jeanne Langlois, Vice-President — Alice Billington, Treasurer — Olga Guerra and Secretary — Bar- bara Sarkes. The activities of the sorority were somewhat limited this year, but I doubt if any of us will forget the fun enjoyed at our weiner roast at Pine Hill Pavilion in Acushnet, Mass. Plans were made to have the party on Saturday night and pains were taken to insure its success. But the weather man had different plans for the group so what had started out to be a fair day soon became a terrible stormy one. This did not prevent the party however, and although we were compelled to have the affair indoors, it neverthe- less proved quite successful. At Christmastime several girls donated a tree and some decorations for the girls ' lounge. This encouraged the real Yuletide spirit in all of us. The climax to this was the wonderful party in which not only the girls in the sorority but all the girls in the school participated. Refreshments were donated and gifts were exchanged. The height of hilarity was reached when Pauline Nault and Jeanne Langlois gave their interpreta- tion of Santa Claus Each girl contributed her share toward making the party pleasant. After two weeks of well-earned vacation, we once more resumed our studies. Shortly after our return, we received saddening news that our dear friend and Sorority Presi- dent, Jeanne Langlois, was leaving school. With her went our sincere best wishes for her success in the future. As a result of the loss of our President, Alice Billington was raised to the presidency and Janice Cree to Vice-President. Sorority pins are scheduled to arrive, and plans for a banquet will end our school year. The Alpha Chapter of the Phi Zeta Sigma Sorority was founded in 1943. Any Textile College with textile departments is eligible to become an active chapter. The purpose of the sorority is to promote friendly feeling and better relations among stud- ents of the textile schools. 60 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE RBME-MBER When the whole Chemistry Class went to the Olympia?

Seniors, that made the season a success were John Motha who coached the team and took care of the pitching duties besides. John Murphy, Bill Pearson, Art Score N.B.

Although these seniors will be sorely missed, capable replacements will be found in the under- graduates and the outlook appears good for the future. Textile 12 Mariti me Academy Textile got away on the right foot un- der the guidance of their new coach, Johnny Motha, blanking the Maritime Academy of Hyannis 12-0. Motha elected to start himself on the mound and he set the mariners back with a four-hitter. The Millmen picked up a run in the 1st, added 4 in the 3rd frame, and the contest was no longer in doubt. " Red " Hays and Charlie Pappas, each with 3 for 3, were the big stickers for the home side. Textile 16 Maritime Academy 8 Textile made it two in a row in the course of one week, when they set back the Academy nine, 16-8, on a rain-soaked diamond at Hyannis. It rained from the opening pitch to the last out, but our side proved to be the " superior mudders " , and tucked the contest in the bag with a 7 run barrage in the 6th canto. Charlie Pappas, Art Davidian, and " Red " Hays were the " big guns " at the plate, with Davidian showing plenty of form in the field despite the heavy mire. " Fireball " Johnny Murphy was the winning pitcher. Textile 24 Bridgewater 4 The hard-hitting Textile nine took the measure of Bridgewater State Teacher ' s College to the tune of 24-4. Flanagan was the starting and winning pitcher and Coach Motha substituted freely giving all of his charges a good workout. Tech took off and scored nine runs in the first three innings, and then blew the lid off the ballgame in the 4th frame with 10 markers. Vanasse, Hays and Pappas were the big stickers in the Tech line-up. Textile 8 Becker Textile entered this contest in the role of the underdog, but they soundly thumped Becker College of Worcester, 8-0 behind the eleven strike-out pitching of Johnny Motha, who gained his second shutout of the year. Art Davidian was sensational at the plater with a home- run, a triple, and a double for a pretty fair day ' s work. Tech made three un- earned runs in the first frame, and then the contest turned into a pitcher ' s duel, for the next three innings. Sataro, the Becker hurler seemed to be settling down, until Art Davidian set off the fireworks in the fifth with his circuit clout with one mate aboard. Red Hays was brilliant in the field, aiding with several fine twin killings. Textile 10 Durfee 7 The Institute made it five in a row without a set-back, when they knocked off arch-rival Durfee High of Fall River, 10-7, on the Hilltoppers home field. One big inning the sixth in which they racked up six tallies, won the ball game for the local nine. Johnny Murphy, the winning hurler was hard hit in spots, but always man- aged to regain form and pitched himself cleverly out of several tight spots. New Bedford picked up a run in each of the first two innings, but Fall River came back with one in their half of the second. Durfee then went to the front with two runs in their half of the third, for the only lead that they ever held. The old reliable from New Jersey, Red Hays, then sparked a rally that brought the Red and Gray to the top once again in the sixth. Letourneau finished things up in this inning with a tremendous three run homer over the left field embank- ment to make the score 10-3. Durfee came back with a slight rally but it was too little and too late. Textile 3 Lowel Textile 2 Once again the local forces entered the game as a decided under-dog, but the New Bedford nine nosed out Lowell 3-2 at Lowell. It marks the first time that a New Bedford team has beaten Lowell in baseball since the series started. Johnny Motha had the mound assignment as the Tech boys ran up their six straight win of the year. New Bedford proved to be the more potent at bat as they out-hit the home nine 12-7, and they played errorless ball in the field. Hays and Vanasse put on a brilliant exhibition around the keystone sack for our side. Textile took the lead in the third, on a single by Vanasse and Red Hays singled him home after he had stolen second. Helfand doubled to open the sixth and then Steve Hall singled him home to make the count read 2-0. Lowell T H E FABRICATOR, 1948 65 came back with one run in the 7th on a walk and two singles, and then Pappas, Czarnota and Motha all collected singles in the eighth to bring across the run that proved to be the margin of victory. Motha quelled a Lowell rally in their half of the eighth after they had brought the count to 3-2. Textile 2 Durfee 1 Textile made it 7-0, when they edged Durfee Textile Institute 2-1, before a good crowd at Buttonwood Park. Johnny Motha of the locals and " Lefty " Wall locked up in a hurling duel, with each giving up five hits. Charlie Pappas opened the Red and Gray second inning with a triple and waltzed home with the first New Bedford run, when " Lefty " Czarnota flied to right field. Durfee knotted the score in the fifth and missed a golden opportunity when they were retired with the bases full. " Red " Hays scored the winning marker in the last of the sixth, when he stole second after getting on by being struck with a pitched ball. He beat out a throw to the plate on Helfand ' s single. Johnny Motha ' s pitching, and the fielding of the team as a whole featured this contest. Textile 3 Becker 8 Our hopes for an undefeated season were rudely upset, when a hard-hitting Becker College Team downed our forces 8-3 at Worcester. The Worcester club started the scoring with a single run in the third, but Tech evened things off again in the last of the sixth. Then the Becker batters really started to catch onto the slantings of Johnny Motha and before the onslaught was over they had netted 7 big runs. Johnny Silva took over, at this point, but the damage had been done and it was too late. The Insti- tute nine never had a chance of getting back into the game as the Businessmen pulled off ,5 helpful double plays. The Red and Gray added two tallies in th e 7th to make the final score 8-3, Becker. " Red " Hays played his usual great game afield and made 3 for 4 at the plate. Textile 9 Bridgewater 5 New Bedford Textile made it two straight over the teachers, racking up a 9-5 win. The Tech nine made eight solid hits off Pitcher George Teahan, four of them coming in the second inning when they tallied six runs to sew up the game then and there. Johnny Silvia was the winning pitcher and went eight innings to be relieved by " Fireball " Johnny Murphy in the last frame. " Red " Hays and " Lefty " Czarnota were the heavy stickers at the plate for the Millmen. 1948 BASEBALL SCHEDULE April 21 Bridgewater State College (Home) 23 Wentworth Institute (Home) 26 Bridgewater State College (Away) May 3 Durfee Institute (Away) 4 Becker College (Home) 6 Calvin Coolidge College (Home) 10 Suffolk University (Away ) 13 Wentworth Institute (Away) 14 Boston University (Home) pending 17 Durfee Institute (Home) 18 Becker College (Away) 25 Calvin Coolidge College (Away) 66 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE BASKETBALL BASKETBALL TEAM 1947-48 First Row: L. to R. — D.

College of Phar. 32 Textile led off with the right foot in their initial start, walloping R.I. College of Pharmacy 104-32. The Tech five averaged 2% points per minute, and they showed signs of giving the Institute their best team in years. Coach Tripp used two different fives and the two platoon system really wore down the Pharma- cists. After the first ten minutes, the contest was no longer in doubt, and at half-time Textile was ahead 50-13. As far as individual performance goes, Coach Tripp used every available man and they all hit the scoring column, four for double figures. Textile 37 M. I. T. 53 New Bedford Textile took a step up higher than their class, and although performing creditably, dropped a 53-37 decision to a tall Massachusetts Insti- tute of Technology team. The shooting- eye of the locals was sadly lacking as they tossed thru only 15 field goals in the contest. M.I.T. had the height off both boards and it was only in the closing minutes, that the millmen made a game out of it, and at this time the Tech subs were playing against a tired Engineer Team. Dick Riley and " Chick " Langlois did a good job despite the height dis- advantage they were working under. Textile 52 Williams College 54 With 5 seconds remaining in the game and the score knotted at 52-52, Bill Demers of Williams Business College of Brockton let fly a one-hander from mid- court that swished through after the final whistle to give the " Shoe City " five a thrilling win. From start to finish the game was close, and the finish was one of the most exciting seen on the local court all year. Savard and Mitchell were the visitors who won the ballgame throw- ing in shots from all angles. The Big- man for our five was Denny Moniz with 22 points. " Chick " Langlois and Dick Riley were great in the back court, clear- ing boards and setting up the plays. Textile 54 Bryant College 40 Shaking up the line-up proved to be the remedy that Coach Tripp ' s team needed to get them their first win in three starts, downing Bryant College of Providence 54-40, before a howling throng of 1200 at the Hope High School gym. This was their first start in the new Southern New England Coastal Con- ference League. " Chick " Langlois shifted to forward in this game and Don McCal- ley was inserted into a guard shot and this arrangement gave the balance the team needed. Bryant had a 5 point edge at half-time but Denny Moniz and Lang- lois got Tech back in the game, and then Dick Riley and Ray Foy began dropping them through, to clinch matters. Textile 42 Bridgewater 32 Textile racked up win number 4 in SNECC, romping to a 52-32 win over Bridgewater State Teacher ' s College. Denny Moniz and Ray Foy ' s total of 34 points proved to be the deciding factor that cut the visitor ' s counter attack to practically nothing. Textile 50 Lowell Textile Institute 64 A New Bedford Textile Institute quin- tet lacking height off the front boards, in addition to displaying some faulty passwork, fell easy prey to Lowell Tex- tile on the Lowell home court. The game was tied 22-22 at one point but then Lowell hopped into a 32-25 lead at half- time. Denny Moniz was the only Textile player who could hit from the field regu- larly, and he collected 22 points. Textile 51 Durfee Textile 55 Durfee Textile administered our first loss in the SNECC league in a game in which they led from start to finish. The Fall River five built up a big lead in the first half, outscoring New Bedford 17-5 in the second period. Tech started a second half drive that cut the margin to 4 points with 50 seconds remaining, but it Avas too late as Durfee held onto the ball successfully for the remaining time. Denny Moniz and Horowitz led the scoring with 21 and 12 points res- pectively, while Don McCauley did a good job of holding down Russ Booth, Durfee ' s high scorer. Textile 53 Paterson 59 The team journeyed to the New York region for their next two games and although they dropped both games they gave creditable performances, in both instances. Tech took an early lead against the Teachers, but they fell in 68 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE arrears at half-time, 25-21. Foy began to hit in the second half and Textile climbed to within two points of their foes, but once again the Aeachers spurted and pulled away in the final minute::. Moniz was high man with 23 points, fol- lowed by Langlois with 13. McCauley did a bang-up job of guarding Pete Si- mon, the high-scoring Paterson forward. Textile 49 Yale Frosh 56 Minus four members of the team that missed the train in New York, Textile put up a great fight before bowing to Yale Freshmen in overtime 56-49. Yale led at half-time 22-17, but New Bedford put on a great second half comeback and tied the score 49-49 in the final minute. Textile showed the effects of their travel in the overtime period, and failed to score. Peters led Yale with 23 markers, and Moniz was best for our side with 12. Textile 58 Pratt 46 Back on the friendly confines of their home court, Textile hit the high point of their season, when they upset Pratt In- stitute of New York 58-46. This was the best performance of the year against a team that had a tremendous height ad- vantage. Tech had a 26-24 margin at half-time. Textile 55 Emerson College 19 Scoring with apparent ease New Bed- ford Textile ripped through Emerson College in the feature game of a Boston Arena afternoon program, and scored a one-sided 55-19 win. The one-sidedness of the contest may be seen by the fact that Emerson was able to score only one field basket in the second half and only four points in this time. The Millmen had only a small 23-15 lead at the half but then came back to pour it on in the second frame. Textile 53 Brown Frosh 50 Big time basketball was established as a fixture in New Bedford, when the Tech five engaged the once-beaten Brown Frosh on the Armory floor. It was one of the best games of the year seen locally, and it was no disgrace for our team to drop a 52-50 decision as Brown had lost only one ether game in 13 starts against the best Frosh teams in New England. Dave Therett of the visitors put on one of the best individual shows seen on local courts this year and the scoring punch of Denny Moniz and Ray Foy almost proved to be enough to spring an upset. Textile 47 Bryant 42 Textile racked up win 16 of the season and clinched second place in the Southern New England Coastal Conference as they defeated Bryant College of Providence 47-42. It was not until the final moments, of the hard fought contest that Denny Moniz put the contest on ice for the Mill- men. The game got off to a rather slow pace and at the quarter, Textile was down two points 9-7, and at half-time they were still down one point. Chinky Vanasse got the team rolling in the second half and with Denny Moniz they helped to settle the final outcome. Moniz continued his consistent scoring and tossed in 23. Textile 46 Becker 57 Becker College of Worcester jumped into a third period lead and they main- tained the edge throughout the re- mainder of the contest to beat out a game but determined New Bedford Tex- tile five, 57-46 in one of the better games of the year. Ray Foy played one of the best games of his Textile career, but it was not enough as the scoring punch of Chick Langlois and Manny Moniz was sadly missed in this game as both were held down by the close checking Becker guards. On this same night in the pre- liminary contest the Textile Jay-yees suf- fered their first loss in 19 starts dropping a 42-37 decision to Cornell Dubilier. Textile 33 Gordon 35 A basket by Dave Hamilton, Gordon Forward that was thrown just in the final second proved to be enough as Gor- don set back New Bedford Textile in a 35-33 upset. The Millmen were way off form and the only time that they led jn the contest was with two minutes to go they grabbed a 33-30 lead, but it was short-lived.

Chicago, 111. Los Angeles, Calif. 1873 - 194 In 1873, Benjamin F. Perkins opened a small service machine shop in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Nine years later, he realized the necessity for quality calender rolls and began the manufacture of rolls, sharing with a paper company in that city a single press. Gradually the business grew, and in 1900 a larger building was acquired. Shortly after the purchase of these new quarters and be- fore the company had an opportunity to move in, B. F. Perkins died, leaving the destinies of the company in the hands of his son, J. Lewis Perkins, Sr. Increasing constantly the production of calender rolls, the com- pany entered new lines, including bleaching, dyeing and finishing machinery, paper and textile testers, ventilating fans, man cooling equipment.

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 ser- vice. Textile print roll requirements are severely exacting. The copper must be homogeneous, free from imperfections, impurities, hard spots, strata, blow holes. It must be evenly, precise- ly tempered, sufficiently ductile to be " picked up " by the engraver ' s tool, yet sufficiently hard to enable 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 printing cylinder by friction; tough enough to withstand repeated pushing on and off man- drell; and must have the smoothness and tex- ture required to prevent the edges of the en- graving 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 dur- ing its life. Also available are cheaper rolls, " re-built " by drawing new copper tubes over cores consist- ing 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 experi- ence 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 throughout the United States today are of Revere make.
