Foster. Mis ' tort of the fiew Bedford Zextile Institute UNDER a special act of the Massachusetts Legislature, authorizing any city with 450,000 or more spindles to organize a corporation whose objective would be the establishment of a textile school, the New Bedford Textile School was founded in 1895. With funds appropriated by the City of New Bedford and the Commonwealth, the first building was erected and readied for the fall session of 1899. This enrollment consisted of 11 day and 183 evening students. The first graduation was held in 1900, as the course was then of only one year ' s duration. Within a short period this was extended to three years; this program prevailed up to the present ex- tension to four years. Due to a rapidly increasing enrollment and a constant improvement and expansion into related fields, new additions to the school were built in 1901, 1905, 1911, and 1923. These structures joined the original build- ing on the North, South, and West, and today house the Mechanical, Knitting, Chemistry, and Designing Departments, the Gymnasium, and sections of the Weaving and C. Y. P. Departments. The acquisition of new and diversified equipment down through the years has contributed to its recognition through- out the world as an excellent textile training center. It became a state institution in 1918. In 1940 a special course for girls was added to the curriculum; in addition, during the war, the school offered training in nutrition, food analysis, and machine shopp practice for girls. With the end of hostilities the school encountered record enrollments that have not as yet abated. In preparation for things to come, the name was changed from " school " to " institute " in January 1946. In May 1947, the trustees were given authority by the State Legislature to grant degrees in textile, chemical, and mechanical engineering. During the ensuing 18 months active plans were formulated, and in November 1948 the expanded curriculum was approved by the State Board of Collegiate Authority. The long awaited four year degree-granting courses of study became a reality. In the midst of this preparatory period, the institute celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in May 1948. The golden jubilee festivities were well attended by alumni from all parts of the country and the world. At present there are two bills before the State Legislature. These seek to appropriate land adjoining the Institute and funds for the construc- tion of a large new building to further supplement the classroom, machinery, and laboratory needs of this rapidly expanding educational institution. Appreciation For thirty-five years of conscientious and devoted service to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, this tribute is made to Miss Maud L. Clark upon her recent retirement as principal clerk and treasurer of the New Bedford Textile Institute. Although her activities did not involve direct contact with the students, her sincere interest and willing- ness to help when called upon were very much appreciated. May her well-deserved retirement be restful and rewarding. Message from the Governor I welcome the opportunity to extend the greetings of the Common- wealth to the Senior Class of the New Bedford Textile Institute through the medium of your class publication, " The Fabricator. " When one of my predecessors, Governor Frederick T. Creenhalge signed a bill on June 5, 1895, which provided for the establishment of textile schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, it initiated an educa- tional offering to the youth of our Commonwealth consistent with the desirability and necessity of specially trained personnel for entrance into our great textile industry. Throughout the intervening years, the New Bedford Textile School, now known as the New Bedford Textile Institute, has trained hundreds of young men who entered the textile industry here and elsewhere and the Commonwealth is justly proud of their achievements and of the school itself. It is heartening to know that leaders in the textile industry view the present and future outlook with the utmost confidence and that such confidence was reflected by the action of our General Court in 1947 which authorized the granting of degrees of Bachelor of Science in Textile En- gineering, Bachelor of Science in Textile Chemistry, and Bachelor of Science in Machine Design, together with authorization for the appropriate enrich- ment of the curriculum in the preparation for these degrees. Therefore, in addition to my official greeting, may I personally join with you members of the graduating class of 1949 in heartfelt thanks to the citizens of the Commonwealth as well as the city of New Bedford whose constant cooperation make this great school possible. Sincerely, PAUL A. DEVER. Message from the Dean At this time we extend our congratulations to you who are about to face the challenging realities of life under the competitive system. Now that you have earned the honor and distinction of a diploma or degree, it is proper that you should expect recompense for your knowledge and services; but, in return, you must give the best you have — not just enough to get by, but more than is expected of you, if you are to assume that position of trust and responsibility for which you have been trained. There is no denying the fact that the employer will be a man who knows values, not only in machines and materials, but also in personnel. He will readily see the potentialities of the new man, his ability to do constructive thinking and to apply this thinking to the many problems which constantly face an ever-changing industry. The young man who, without quibble or question, without argument or hesitation, can and will do what he is told, is at a premium in any business. As this school year comes to a close we should, with pardonable pride, feel happy in that New Bedford Textile Institute is now a degree-granting institution. This is without doubt the greatest forward step since its establishment fifty years ago. I wish to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the trustee board, the faculty, alumni, and others for their excellent cooperation in bringing about this noteworthy change. With knowledge, wisdom, enthusiasm, loyalty, and hard work, New Bedford Tex- tile Institute together with its graduates will continue to go forward. Sincerely, GEORGE WALKER, Dean.

We loved to make the crosses, But when it came to weaving Qur gains became our losses! When Analysis was concerned We reached a sad conclusion, Thinking in that class is Very sadly an illusion. As the days continued on We faced our studies lighter And agreed quite gingerly We are all a little brighter. To be seniors is now our hope We ' re looking forward to the day.

For many years scientists have suspected an ele- ment would be found with a smaller atomic number than Hydrogen, but it was quite by accident that Prof. Broadmeadow stumb- led upon the reaction that isolated the ele- ment. He was groping around in the chem- ical stockroom one day when the light switch was on the blink, looking for a bottle of Erie Fast Red FD, and knocked several acid bottles from the shelf. A dull red glow appeared, followed by a loud report. When the smoke cleared away, there remained an appreciable quantity of Schmolium. Preliminary examinations show that the nucleus of the atom contains one electron and has a positron in its outer shell. This is interesting, since the ratio of charge to mass can vary from plus infinity to minus infinity by removing one or the other. Its use as an " Atomic Bullet " is questionable as in the instance of K. E.= V2 MV- the answer is zero. Prof. Broadmeadow visual- izes great things can come from Schmol- ium; he states that by turning the atom in- side out and inserting a proton into its nucleus you can make a hydrogen atom. Prof. Broadmeadow doubts if this method of making hydrogen will supplant the method used in the reduction of nitrobenzene, name- ly from scrap iron and commercial Hydro- chloric, but it would be fun, he says. There is no doubt that Schmolium is the active ingredient in Irium and puts the sol in Solium. Prof. Broadmeadow asserts that if a small amount of Schmolium was to be added to the Toni Refill Kit, there would be no doubt which twin had had it. New Bedford Textile Institute Research Department Comments by members of the Institute Staff on the new element. Mr. Foster: " No Comment. " Mr. Beardsworth: " I can think of three possible applications of Schmolium: 1. As an injection to keep Silvia awake mornings. 2. As an application to warp yarns to eliminate breakage and to effect a redraw when they do break. 3. As a treatment to keep students upright in their seats and with feet on the floor. Mr. Saltus: " Only a schmo could dis- cover schmolium. Also the effect this new element will have on Einstein ' s space time is incalculable. Since E=mc , we have in schmolium the answer to Einstein ' s predic- tions of decreasing mass at velocities ap- proaching that of light. Schmolium con- tradicts Einstein! It is New Bedford Textile ' s answer to Princeton. " Mr. Saltus went on to say, " the experimental technique describ- ed is in keeping with the best traditions of Physics and Chemistry. These techniques reflect faithfully an extremely cautious personality. Mr. Dupre: " I feel the discovery of this element is the beginning of the revolution in textile dyeing and printing industry. Also this should create so much interest in classes that student absences and tardiness will no longer be a problem. Mr. Sullivan: " Historically, this discov- ery has no significance. " Mr. Giblin: There are innumerable pos- sibilities for Schmolium in its plastic state; it will replace vinylite as table covering, it will replace nylon in women ' s stockings, and when cut into staple fiber will cause cotton and rayon to sit up and take notice. At an interview with Prof. Broadmeadow, the discoverer of the new element, Schmol- ium, chemical symbol SH, one month after his initial mishap in the chemical stock- room, the following took place: Editor: " Anything new on Schmolium, Prof.? " Prof. B. " Yes. The Twin now wears a wig. " Editor: " How about its large scale pro- duction? " Prof. B. " We are getting a giant cyclo- tron; we find that if we " bombard " a stu- dent preparation of Orange 2 with alpha particles, Schmolium precipitates in the dyebath. Editor: " Where is the cyclotron going, in the new building? " Prof. B. " We can ' t wait; we intend to rip out all the looms on the second floor, or use the first year chem lab. Editor: " How about the effect of the dis- covery of Schmolium on world stability, Prof.? " Prof. B. " There have been some shady characters poking around in the chem de- partment who do not answer roll call. I think they are some of Joe ' s boys. Along side of a hooker of Schmoliuum, chemical symbol Sh, Vodka is pink tea! " Editor: " Anything else? " Prof. B. " We put one of Brown ' s living cells into a thimble full of Sh. It incubat- ed 48 hours at 100 degrees F. " Editor: " Yes? " Prof. B. " The cell is taking over the Organic lectures. " THE FABRICATOR, 1949 35 Mumor ? ? Memories so dear — Remember When Mr. B. dismissed the chem class early, asking them to go down quietly so as not to wake the other classes. The engineers stock answer to Mr. F.

Aitke n, sad and beat after a hard night and looking the worse for wear, was stand- ing on the corner waiting for a bus. A kind- ly looking old lady walked up and pressed a dollar bill into his hand, sympathetically saying, " Never despair. " The next morn- ing Aitken saw the same lady and walked over handing her nine dollars. Surprised, she asked, " What does this mean? " " It means, " said Aitken, " that ' Never Des- pair ' won and paid 8 to 1 . " One morning Artie was breakfasting out at the Orchid and Soupy dished up a special boiled egg. On the shell was written: " To whom it may concern: should this meet the eye of some young man who desires to marry a farmer ' s daughter, 1 8 years of age, kindly communicate with . After noting the address, he ate the egg, ran home, and wrote offering marriage. In a few days he received a reply, " Thank you very much, but your offer came too late. I ' m now married and have four children. " Mr. Fenaux: " This exam will be conduct- ed on the honor system. Please take seats three chairs apart and in alternate rows. " Mr. Pacheco: " Before we begin the ex- amination, are there any questions? " Szabo: " What ' s the name of this course? " Mr. Saltus: " Now we find that X is equal to zero. " Manny: " Gee! All that work for nothing. " Mr. Foster: " What do we mean when we say the whole is greater than any of its parts? " Collins: " A restaurant doughnut. " Questioner: " Are you a college man? " Harold: " No, a horse just stepped on my hat. " Elliot: " Give me a match, Doc. " Doc: " Here it is. " Elliot: " Well, can you beat that? I ' ve forgotten my cigarettes! " Doc: " That ' s too bad, give me back my match. " z obel : " What are your terms for stu- dents? " Landlady: " Bums, loafers, dead beats and wonderful promises. " Overheard at Inter-School Dance — Durfee Engineer: " Our weaving instructor talks to himself. Does yours? " New Bedford Engineer: " Yes, but he doesn ' t realize it — he thinks we are lis- tening. " Silvia: " No more of that chick for me! " Chinky: " Why? " Silvia: " She asked me if I dance. " Chinky: " What ' s wrong with that? " Silvia: " We were dancing when she asked me. " Bargiel: " I don ' t know what ' s the mat- ter, I never danced so poorly before. " Date: " Oh, then you have danced be- fore. " " How do you know he is from Canada? " " He dances as if he had snow-shoes on. " Bob Heaps: " What would you advise me to read after graduating? " Mr. Silva: " The ' Help Wanted ' column. " Carabell in Math Class: " How far are you from the correct answer? " Kranich: " Two seats. " " Did you have the car out last night? ' ' Silveira: " Yes, I took some of the boys from school for a run around. " " Well, tell them I found two of their lipsticks. " Statistics show that Yale graduates have 1 .3 children, while Vassar graduates have 1 .7 children, which proves the women still have more children than men. 36 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE Lii «df P _ L HHl ™ ' »f JHUI IS :.v -. wmw 9m • " -j i ■Ml 1 v - . -; t " «rc„.- -i 4 if- C 5 vir if%! w JL .7J V 7 • " " J ., .. aJjit-Wi :::::. .

Student Council The formation of a Student Council during this past year is another landmark in the growth and development of the New Bedford Textile Institute. This organization has already emerged from its infancy, and is slowly becoming a clearing house for student suggestions and reactions, which after sifting the wheat from the chaff, have often led to beneficial situations. Although loosely knit at first, the group has taken on stature, and has begun to serve as a sounding board for student opinion, an important factor in any educational institution. Originally as pictured above, the council was composed of one delegate from each class; this group was later augmented by an additional delegate from each class. In addition to representing their classes, the council delegates also constitute a good cross section of the student population, as there are local, out-of-town, and foreign students at the school and on the council.

School Mand The School Band, one of the several extra-curricular activities at the institute, has brought many pleasant moments to the student body since its successful debut at the first assembly sponsored by the Student Council. This organization is composed of very capable performers who, as a group, have proved themselves to be a very valuable asset to the institute. In the dance hall, on the concert stage, or at the athletic field, their ability to adjust themselves to the locale has a mazed everyone. This success was attained through many hours of practice under the leadership of Mr. John R. Barylski of the faculty. 44 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE First row, left to right — Richard Riley, Barbara Sarkes, Christine Muir, Simonne Meurin, Sidney Carabell, Elliot Lazarus.

It meets periodically, on a roving chairmanship basis, and serves as a clearing house for the activities of each group so as to prevent duplication of effort and needless conflict of dates regarding future activities. At the meetings, pledging procedures are agreed upon, and general information and opinions of common interest are exchanged. During the past year the Council sponsored the " Inter-School Dance " on behalf of the New Bedford Textile Institute in conjunction with the Inter-Fraternity Council of the Bradford-Durfee Technical Institute at the New Bedford Country Club. The third annual (since the war) " Inter-Fraternity Dance " was held at the New Bedford Hotel. The purpose of the Inter-Fraternity Council, as stated in the Preamble to its Consti- tution, adopted October 1, 1947, is that of " advancing social welfare and promoting friendly feeling amongst Sororities and Fraternities of the New Bedford Textile Institute. " Its effec- tiveness will continue to depend upon the support given by Sorority and Fraternity members to their representatives on, and to matters proposed by, the Council.

Late in September, our brother, S. Carlson, had the alumni and members of Delta Chapter as his guests at a clambake in Marshfield; this will long be remembered. During the jubilee, Delta Kappa had a suite of rooms at the New Bed- ford Hotel where the alumni met old acquaintances. Among those who attended were William A. Karl, Ed. Murphy, T. B. O ' Brien, Chuck Head, and others. Inter-frat bowling was sponsored by Mr. Fenaux, who did an excellent job in bringing this about. Chapter member Miltes Antunes was instru- mental in organizing the varsity soccer team and the intra-mural ping pong team. The initiation was held in February and fifteen new members were inducted. In April we held our fiftieth Annual Convention; this business and social affair was the climax of Delta Chapter activity for the school year. A farewell party is planned at the end of the school year for the brothers who are graduating. The future looks bright for the coming year; many important and enjoyable activities are planned.

The fabric and student work dis- play of the various schools the chapters represented received much fav- orable comment for its excellence. The first of $100.00 and a Plaque donated by Andrew Macy, an alumnus of Beta, was won for the second year in a row by Beta Chapter. A Smoker was held in October at Carpenter ' s Hall with about ninety freshmen as guests. Later that month an Open-House meeting was also held at Carpenter ' s Hall. The Honored Guest and speaker of the evening was Harold H. Hart, Executive Secretary of the Grand Council. Other social events of the year included a very successful informal dance sponsored by Beta Chapter, and a stag at which members of Delta Chapter at Bradford-Durfee were present. Both chapters agreed that an- other such get-together should take place in the near future. This year the Annual Convention will be held during the first week of May in Atlanta, Georgia. Theta Chapter of Georgia Tech will be host. Plans are now under way for this year ' s student display under the able supervision of Mr. Giblin, faculty advisor. It is hoped we can win this award for the third successive year. Plans for our annual dinner dance have been outlined. This event, which has been highly successful in past years, is held for chapter members only. It will conclude another prosperous year for Beta Chapter.

Bowling party followed. At a meeting later in the month, guest speaker Clifford Ashley of Nonquitt Mills spoke on new tech- niques in cloth manufacture. May — Feverish activity in connection with final exams; we passed! These were followed by a " blow-out " beer party at Carpenter ' s Hall. Most of the brothers managed to survive. June — The long awaited summer recess finally arrived and the members scattered as usual to points in all directions away from New Bedford. September — The return from the long " rest " was as spirited as the de- parture had been three months earlier. The new " experiences " were exchanged in short order, and then things returned to normal. October — New business of the year was eagerly taken up and committees began to work a bit. Catching up with school work after the sum- mer absence of " book-cracking " seemed to occupy the time well, but not to exclude all other activity, such as a bowling party on the treasury; all attended, of course. November — N. B. T. I. was given official permission to grant Bachelor degrees in Chemistry, Textile Engineering and Machine Design. This was good news to all the students whose B. S. was now a thing come true. At a combined business and social meeting, Dr. Boris Frankfurter, chief chemist of the Normandie Print Works, spoke briefly on textile printing, particularly screen printing. December — Pledging bids were accepted by six freshmen. Their trade mark around school was the wearing of an enlarged key, Phi Beta Kappa type, but containing a more appropriate inscription. Black and gold beanies later substituted for the keys. The Christmas vacation did not creep up on us by any means, and the boys repaired to Miami, Mexico, Brooklyn and the Bronx. January — The 2nd Annual Winter Frolic held at the Community Center was a social success. The fireplace and candle lighted rooms of the big old house looked festive, and the dancers a mite tired by midnight. Followed almost immediately by Mid-Year exams; ho hum. February — With the new term we all bought new slates; the old ones had been wiped clean too many times. While on the subject of wiping, the pledgees thought we were going to wipe the floor with them; well, we did try. Initiations are so much fun! Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre couldn ' t make it, but we used a coke bottle instead. March — Third set of officers since Beta ' s reactivation was elected, and their thoughts immediately turned to the somewhat reduced size the group would assume after the June graduation. The Annual Conven- tion in New York was attended by several Beta men, who as usual looked forward to the next one.

PhiZeta Sigma Sorority The Phi Zeta Sigma Sorority opened its 1948-49 year and election of officers. . Those who were elected are: President — Simonne Meurin Vice-President — Barbara Sarkes Treasurer — Irene Jaremko Secretary — Christine Muir Publicity Manager — Priscilla Turner A resolution was made at the beginning of the year that social events would be abundant. The calendar began with a buffet lunch in the girl ' s lounge at school to welcome the Fresh- man girls to the school. Each succeeding month was highlighted with an event such as a hay ride, theater party, bowling party, Christmas party, annual banquet, and a Valentine party. A fact of more than incidental importance is that we were the victors over Delta Kappa Phi at the bowling party — with a slight margin, of course, 13 pins. Before Christmas a trip was made to the Bradford- Durfee Technical Institute in Fall River to bring the girls of the two schools closer together. We are also very pleased that through correspondence a friendship has been established between the girls of the Philadelphia Textile Institute and those at our own school. Early in January our sorority sister and capable officer, Dorine Fredette left school. A special election was held to fill the vacancy created by her departure. Christine Muir was elected secretary for the remainder of the school year. Our lounge is our pride and joy. We worked hard at redecorating it, but the labor proved rewarding when we saw how the furnishings shone anew. The Phi Zeta Sigma Sorority wishes to thank the Fraternities for their aid in answering our questions and for helping us to strengthen the foundation of our organization. To the graduates, may we say, " Congratulations and best of luck in your future work. " 52 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE What the Zextile Industry Expects from ]fou By WILLIAM A. NEWELL, Assistant Editor, TEXTILE WORLD The recent textile-school graduate is envied today by many of those men for and with whom he will be working. He has been endowed with advantages and training never before available to many of his predecessors in the industry. He is entering an industry which has a new attitude toward him reflecting a respect and a need for his potentialities. Textile-industry leaders today feel that their greatest need is for intelligent, trained men on whom they can draw for future management. But this new industry attitude and your textile-school diploma do not alone insure your success. The new attitude of industry insures only your chance of being successful. Your diploma certifies that you have received two things from your school: (1 ) a basic and fundamental knowledge of the materials and machines of your industry, and (2) an ability to think. Of the two, the ability to think will prove by far the more important. Your early days in industry will show you how really fundamental, yet really necessary, your training in materials and machines has been. The industry you are entering expects you to combine this textile train- ing with the ability to think and apply both to the problem of your industry. The free-enterprise system has insured the survival of your mill as long as it has continued to do a better job at a lower cost. Your company expects you to find new ways to do the old jobs better in order that your company may continue to survive. Your formula is neither new, complicated, nor easy. It requires that you apply yourself to your every job, master it, find the one best way to do it, make its performance routine, and then start the same cycle with your next task. Your objective always: to help your mill raise production, cut costs, improve quality, and sell more goods. In approaching each new task, learn all you can about how it fits into the work of the entire plant. Learn well how it is done. Study its every aspect until you ' re its master. Then try the variations — there is one best way to do every task. Find it. If you can, eliminate the job. Never worry about working yourself out of a job by eliminating your own. Keep abreast of new developments and recommend their use when a thorough analysis indicates their profitable application. Study well the industry journals ' which contain the lessons of your never-ending post- graduate textile studies. Maintain an analytical outlook — correct waste- ful practices. Next, adopt systematic procedures to make routine and automatic as much work as possible. Free yourself of routine tasks in order that you may direct your attention to constructive work. Organize your work so that you must deal only with the exceptions that do not fit the system. Then revise the system to provide for future similar exceptions. Such is the way of good management. Meet every crisis with a plan for preventing its recurrence and your crises will become fewer and fur- ther between. Simultaneously you will find yourself being raised above those of your associates whose continual attention to routine details pre- vent their forward, constructive thinking. Figuratively speaking, your training in textile has taught you only to tell a loom from a lathe. It is how well you apply and develop your second asset, the ability to think, to develop your textile knowledge that will determine your success. 54 NEWBEDFORDTEXTILE THLF " For when the one great scorer comes to write against your name, He marks — not that you won or lost — but how you played the game.

This game was high- lighted by the brilliant pitching of John Motha, who was credited with 10 strikeouts. John received excellent support both in the field and at the plate. In the latter department, Maurice Letour- neau ' s two hits and Charley Pappas ' double were deciding fac- tors in the outcome of the game. 56 NEW BEDFORD TEXTIL Calvin Coolidge College of Boston was Textile ' s only other win of the season. John Silvia ' s relief hurling combined with the brilliant fielding of Chinky Vanasse and Sam Helfand ' s hitting gave Tech a well deserved 5 to 3 win. Becker College, with a big five run rally in the fifth inning, proved to be too much for the Institute, although Art Sirois out- did himself in the pitching role, racking up 12 strike outs. Un- timely errors in the field were the main reason for the Red and Grey ' s downfall. The ever-reliable Chinky Vanasse played his usual fine game in the infield. Suffolk University pushed across seven runs in the first inning; to overcome these would have been a job of Herculean proportions. It was only the brilliant relief hurling of John Murphy and the spectacular fielding display put on by Al Wood that held the score down. Charley Pappas, Sam Helfand, and Maurice Letourneau did their best to whittle down Suffolk ' s lead, but that big first inning proved to be disastrous. The remainder of the schedule, which included games with Becker at Worcester, Lowell, and Wentworth, was rained out. Faculty manager, Mr. Adam Bayreuther, has lined up a six game schedule this year, with the hope of acquiring at least two more games. Listed are two games with Becker and Durfee, one with Quonset Naval, and one with Suffolk. The squad has hopes for an excellent season this year, as just about all of last year ' s team returned.

Coach Francis Tripp, in hoping to raise basketball at the Institute to college level, lined up a 30 game schedule with some of the top notch small colleges in the East. Such clubs as M.I.T., Norwich University, Arnold College, Lowell Textile, Paterson, N. J. State Teachers, Philadelphia Textile, and Pratt Institute were on the schedule. The squad, itself, minus two of last year ' s regulars, seemed to lack scoring punch in its first four games, but came into great shape, and at one time had a 10 game winning streak. Two new additions to the Red and Grey starting lineup, " Dil " Alves and Lefty Haworth, plus " old dependable " Ray Foy supplied the scoring punch missing at the start of the season. The starting five was rounded out by two very capable defensive players, Dick Riley and Don McCauley, the latter having been outstanding in his back- board play. A well-balanced group of reserves was another important factor in the Tech squad ' s recent successes. Such luminaries as Bud Dunham, Fred Burke, 58 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE Bill Wilson, " Chinky " Vanasse, George Kuliga, John Silvia, and Walt Bau- man have been called in, and have outdone themselves on more than one occasion. The team, after defeating Rhode Island School of Pharmacy by a lop- sided margin in the opener, went on to lose the next three to M. I. TV, Keene State Teachers College, and Norwich University. The Keene game, a hectic affair, was lost by the narrow margin of 52 to 51, and at times re- sembled a football contest. At Northfield, Vermont the strain of an extensive trip through Vermont and New Hampshire was quite evident, as the Red and Cray was beaten quite decisively by a well-conditioned Norwich University squad on its spacious floor. The Raiders bounced back, after dropping these two, and managed to defeat the Rhode Island School of Design by the score of 50 to 36. The next two games at home were heartbreakers; they were lost to Arnold Col- lege and Bryant College by the identical scores of 48 to 47. The game with Arnold was considered a moral victory, as Textile, playing its best ball of the season, came within one point of upsetting a bigger and more experienced team. Textile ' s most cherished victory to date is a 52 to 49 win over its bitterest rival, Lowell Textile. Spurting to a 23 to 6 lead in the first quarter, the Trippmen were not to be denied, although the ever improving Lowell quintet managed to make it extremely hot for the Red and Gray at the finish. A very clever job of " freezing the ball " managed to stave off possible defeat. The team had its hands full for the remainder of the s eason with such teams as Becker College, Paterson State Teachers College, and the Philadel- phia Textile Institute.

The reactivation of football at the In- stitute proved to be quite successful. Although the season ' s record of 3 wins, 4 losses, and 1 tie is not too impressive, the squad led by Coaches Clarry Has- kell, Charlie Tsouprake, Joe West, and trainer Larry Chongarlides gave a good account of themselves throughout the season. After dropping the season opener to the Massachusetts ' Maritime Acad- emy, as the result of a fluke safety in the closing minutes of play, the Red Raiders went on to play Nichols Junior College to a standstill until the final play of the game when a Nichols ' back managed to break loose to score the only touchdown of the game. The team really hit its stride in the next game, which was against New England College at Concord, New Hampshire. Tech pushed across two touch- 60 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE downs, and could have scored on numerous other occasions but for untimely penalties called against them. Against Wenthworth Institute at Sargent Field, Textile dominated the play, but did not have the necessary scoring punch when near Wentworth ' s goaline. As a result the game ended in a scoreless tie. Adelphi College of Freeport, Long Island proved to be more than the Red Raiders could handle. The boys from Long Island, with a fast, shifty backfield, operating behind a heavier and more experienced line than Tech could field, romped to an easy 12-0 victory. The sailors aboard the U. S. S. Yosemite were the next victims for the Institute. Fielding a big, but inexperienced, team, the Navy could do nothing to stop the Institute as they rolled to their most impressive vic- tory of the season. Champlain College of Champlain, New York was, like Adelphi, much heavier and more experienced than Tech. After competing against such teams as Conn. University, Champlain found our defense quite vulnerable, and proceeded to an easy 19-0 victory. Textile ended its season at Sargent Field on Thanksgiving Day. Leicester Junior College, a small but scrappy aggregation, furnished the opposition. Played in a sea of mud, the Institute ' s ground game was slowed down con- siderably, but before the final whistle had been blown, the Raiders scored two touchdowns, and added a field goal for a well deserved 17-0 win. With only a few of this year ' s squad leaving at graduation, Coach Has- kell has visions of a banner year for 1949. He has already lined up a ter- rific schedule, which includes such teams as Adelphi College, Champlain College, Maine Maritime, and Wentworth Institute. This assures football enthusiasts at the Institute a season chock full of thrills. Members of the senior class who more than outdid themselves to bring prestige to the Institute were Co-Captains Dick Riley and Maurice Letourneau; Bud Dunham, starting end who also did some of the punting for the squad; Wylie Hamrick, starting tackle and son of Lyman Hamrick, former textile " great; " the " Cold Dust Twins, " Art Ashley and Paul Don- aghy; Tony Cracia, starting guard and a great defensive lineman; Jimmie Lentz, who did a creditable job of filling in for Don Calnan when the latter was injured in the New England game. Also Steve Conet and John Silvia, who did a whale of a job in backing up the line for the Raiders; and, last but not least, Art Peisner, who deserves a lot of credit for his job as senior manager.

Soccer Zcam After a lapse of several years, the New Beford Textile Institute is represented by a Varsity soccer team. It boasts an international lineup with players from the United States, Chile, Mexico, France, Brazil, Greece, Haiti, and Palestine. The team was coached by Mr. Walter Pollard. An excellent season was completed with a record of seven wins and one loss. In the opening game of the season, a smooth passing Textile eleven downed Tabor Academy 2 to in a game played in Marion. The second game found Tech traveling to Boston to meet Suffolk Uni- versity. The Beantowners, although undefeated in 1947 and still having their entire first team intact, fell easy prey to the Millmen. The final score was 6 to 1 in a game played during a heavy rain, which made playing condi- tions hazardous for both teams. 62 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE In the initial home contest of the season, the Red and Cray handed out a 5 to lacing to a younger and more inexperienced New Bedford Vocational aggregation at Ashley Field. The fourth game of the season was played at Bridgewater against the Bridgewater State Teachers College. Although hampered somewhat by the close confines of the local ' s field, Textile turned in an impressive 6 to 1 victory. The game was iced by a four goal scoring drive in the third period. Returning home, Textile played host to its arch rival, Durfee Textile of Fall River, at Brooklawn Park. The visitors were greeted warmly by their New Bedford " cousins, " and, when the smoke cleared, were on the short end of a 5 to 1 count. Once more a big, three goal third period pro- vided the downfall. With a season ' s record of five straight triumphs, the high-flying Tech booters journeyed to Providence to tangle with Brown University. The Bears, with victories over many of our leading eastern colleges, proved too tough for the Millmen, and won going away 9 to 0. The boys, feeling low after this stinging defeat, took it out on a hap- less Rhode Island College of Education eleven to the tune of 6 to in the seventh game of the season, which was also played in Providence. The 1948 finale proved to be the most exciting game of the season. It was a return battle with Durfee Tech in Fall River. It was a tight, de- fensive game throughout; with two minutes remaining in the contest and the score deadlocked at 0-0, Textile ' s captain, Carlos Hirmas, beat Durfee goalie, Walt Gregory, with a shot that broke the tie, and gave the Red Raiders their most treasured win of the season. With almost the same team returning next year, Textile hopes to have another excellent season.

Athletic Council The New Bedford Textile Institute Athletic Association, a compara- tively new organization in the school, originated at a meeting held by the Directors on September 13, 1948. It was voted that a committee be ap- pointed to encourage and govern all indoor and outdoor sports and handle all athletic business. The committee, comprised of five members of the Institute Faculty, two members of the Institute Trustee Board, and two members of the Stu- dent Body, at its first meeting, elected Mr. Francis Tripp, President; Mr. Adam Bayreuther, Treasurer; Mr. James Giblin, Secretary; Mr. Louis Fen- aux, Assistant Treasurer. At a later meeting, Mr. Fred Beardsworth was appointed to the Association. Student members of the Athletic Association, members of the Junior Class, are elected annually by a vote of the student body. It is the desire of the Association to supervise sports and ascertain that they be conducted in a sportsmanlike and honorable manner. 64 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE v at«apr « " -,m m » %Kff I»1 BppI «|ufc Eva SSL vj|H » it . ■ . ■ j Wi?m4 ' (3, =.,- - _ Koster of graduates Aitken, William jr. — 32 Durfee Street, New Bedford, Mass.

As a result of this long experience the Revere or- ganization 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 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 " bv 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- drel: 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.
