And so within these pages we have sought to recapture some of the pleasant moments of our college life in the hope that their memory will be retained for future years. bedicatian w MMssitf iiwyi . Because he has imparted his amiable personality into many phases of life at the Institute, in activities varying from soccer coach to department head; because as a teacher he has shown great interest in his students and has always been willing to help in every possible way, we, the class of 1950, in appreciation of the untiring efforts which he has spent in making our college years pleasant and constructive, gratefully and respectfully dedicate this issue of the FABRICATOR to MR. FRED BEARDSWORTH Jtt iHrmoram We respectfully dedicate this page to the memory of Abram Brooks — scientist, philosopher, teacher and dreamer — who, for over twenty-nine years, served as instructor in organic chemistry here at the Institute. Abram Brooks was a curious, yet stimulating blend of contradictions and paradoxes. As a teacher and scientist he was challenged by the theories of Einstein; as a dreamer he found delight in the fantasies of Fort. Although a self-taught expert in ballistics, he could still be intrigued by petty mathematical puzzles. His mind was intensely active yet he found time to build a strong body. He will be remembered for the diversity of his interests, for his prolific- reading and for his concern for the problems of his students. MeLA Cfe jfiam the QaveiM i 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. " For over a half century, the New Bedford Textile Institute (formerly the New Bedford Textile School) has done magnificent work in the matter in training young men who have subsequently achieved distinction in the executive, technical, and financial branches of the textile industry within the Commonwealth and throughout the United States. Since the school started during the final decade of the past century to the present time, the citizens of the Commonwealth, through the medium of their representatives in the General Court, have given such generous support to this institution that it happily occupies a position of eminence in the national field of textile education. Therefore, I am pleased to join with all our citizens in heartfelt good wishes to the members of the present graduating class who will soon go into the great textile industry and who will carry on the great tradition of those who have gone before. Sincerely, PAUL A. DEVER MeAAafe jfi m the P ieUdent I and everyone associated with New Bedford Textile Institute, in the past as well as in the present, feel a great sense of pride and satisfaction in that we are, for the first time in our history, awarding the degree of Bachelor of Science. Mere words cannot express to you the importance attached to this, our latest achievement in the field of higher education. My personal wish is that your plans and your hopes may more readily materialize because of this academic achievement. I believe that because of it your career will rest upon a more solid foundation. And yet I find myself aware of the need to remind you young men and women that an academic degree is but a part of that equipment which you must possess if you are to attain success in your individual careers. I speak to you as one who has had his share of experience. Let me, in all sincerity, remind you of the need to exercise caution in all of your business affairs; for, unhappily, we are still living in a society which too frequently tends to disregard the Golden Rule. But this should not blind you to the awareness that moral virtue and high ideals make for a fuller and richer life. Again permit me to remind you that your formal education is but one of the means to help you to stand on your own two feet. As one who has traversed many years, I still find the world to be a beautiful world in spite of its sham, its drudgery, and its broken dreams. Whatever your labors and aspirations, learn to keep peace in your soul; learn the secret of remaining cheerful ; learn the real value of how to be happy. If we here at the institute have helped place you on the right road to- ward the fulfillment of your hopes and desires, then we may feel proud and happy in having discharged a measure of our duty toward you. You are as well aware as I that our times call for a new leader ship of men and women with vision and courage and ability — to bring tranquility and order and amity to a troubled world, and to an America if it is to pursue its path of peaceful progress. God grant that from you such leadership shall be forthcoming.

Here at N.B.T.I., Beta Chapter is guided by faculty adviser Prof. Giblin. At the start of the school year there were sixty-five members on the local chapter roll. Thirty-eight new members were pledged after the start of the second semester and were admitted to the brotherhood upon receiving the third decree on April 1st, at the Manger Hotel in Boston. These new members, together with contingents from Gamma and Delta Chapters, were the guests of their respective Chapters at the usual " long-to- be-remembered " banquet following the conferring of the degree. Two open-house affairs and two dances, sponsored by the Chapter, were the principal social events of the year. Also the Chapter assisted in the very successful Valentine Dance, sponsored by the Interfraternity Council. Outstanding as an addition to the activities this vear, v as the entrance of a Phi Psi team in the City Basketball League, an independent league made up of seme of the cream of New Bedford ' s hecpsters. After a slow start, in which the " Beta Brigade " adjusted itself to league competition, the team began to operate smoothly and soon made its pres- ence felt, at cue time compiling a winning streak of six straight games. The team was ably managed and coached by Brother " Chinky " Vanasse. On May 5, 6, and 7th, the annual T hi Psi convention will be held at the New Ocean House, Swampscott, Mass.

DELTA KAPPA PHI ACTIVITIES Closing an active year, Delta Chapter of Delta Kappa Phi, held what was to be its final meeting of the 1948-49 season on the evening of April 7. The principal business of the meeting was the election of officers for the coming year. Robert Mercer, was elected Consul. To assist him with his duties the following brothers were named: Ray Perrault, ' 50, Pro-Consul; Norman Desilets, ' 50, Custodian; James Price, ' 50, Annotator; Harold Rogers, ' 51, Scribe; Frantz Brandt, ' 51, Sergeant at Arms. Brother Wm. Kirk, a member of the faculty, was named Faculty Advisor to replace Brother Louis Feneaux whose election to Supreme Consul necessitated his resignation as advisor. 44 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE INSTITUTE The fraternity year closed with a sports day and clambake. The get-together was attended by the full membership and several invited guests. A swell time and a swell bake were enjoyed by all. The 1949-50 season opened with a meeting in Carpenter ' s Hall where all future meetings of the year were to be held. At this meeting it was decided to hold the regular monthly meetings on the first Friday of each month. Other future plans such as open houses, etc. were discussed. The first " open house " was held on the evening of December 2nd when about 60 prospective candidates were in attendance. Refresh- ments were served and all joined in the healthy pastime of barber- shop singing. A second open house was held some months later at which time the active membership entertained about 50 invited guests. Again refreshments and group singing highlighted the evening. Initiation of new members was held on March 3rd. It goes with- out saying that all new members were inducted in a manner befitting such an event. Plans have been made for the election of new officers at a future meeting. It is hoped that these brothers will receive the same full cooperation enjoyed by the retiring leaders. As the school year comes to a close, all " Dekes " are looking for- ward to the convention which is being sponsored by Beta Chapter of Lowell Textile Institute over the weekend of April 29-30. There they will meet with the Chapters from Lowell, Philadelphia, No. Carolina and Georgia Tech to discuss the various problems concerned with the general welfare of the fraternity. The under-graduate membership of Delta Chapter extends its best wishes to the entire graduating class and hopes that as they go out into the world, they will take with them fond memories of D.K. and N.B.T.L THE FABRICATOR. 1950 45 Left to right: Holding banner — R.

Seven brothers from Beta attended the convention in New York and a very merry time was had by all. April. Installation of officers was held at Carpenter ' s Hall. This was followed by a beer drinking contest which was won by Brother Keiles who received an inscribed beer bottle as a momento of the occasion. Everyone left with a full load of beer, but all managed to survive the ordeal. 46 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE INSTITUTE May. A stag party was held at Carpenter ' s Hall, now a landmark of Beta Chapter. During this month, a deep sea fishing trip was arranged; and 18 brothers ventured out into the blue Atlantic in search of fish. On the return trip, however, many of the intrepid fishermen were found to be seasick, cold and Ashless. June. At long last the summer recess arrived and 20 members of our Chapter graduated, leaving just 10 members to carry on. Those remaining left for home, some traveling as far as Palestine. September. Everyone returned to school full cf vitality and eager „o get back into the grind of school work. The long rest had made them eager to resume their studies. October. Committees were appointed to get the ball rolling. Although we were small in number our spirit was great. Everyone took an active part in the fraternity to help keep its good name intact. By this time the school work was starting to get clearer after the long rest. November. Good news of the opening of Alpha ' s " frat " house was received and wishes for good luck were extended by all our brothers to the Philadelphia Chapter. December. A bowling party was held at Vera ' s to meet and get ac- quainted with the pledgees. The attendance was good and every- one had a good time, more so because the expense of the bowling was taken care of by the Chapter treasury. January. Many members of the fraternity attended the Inter-fraternity Dance at the New Bedford Hotel. A good time was had by all. February. Eight members of the fraternity journeyed to Philadelphia to witness the basketball game between the New Bedford and Philadelphia Textile Institutes. The boys visited the new school and the fraternity house. Beta appreciated the hospitality of- fered. A smoker was held at the New Bedford Hotel for pledgees. Six new pledgees will be inducted this spring. THE FABRICATOR. 1950 47 PHI ZETA SIGMA The Phi Zeta Sigma Sorority started the year of 1949-50 with the following officers: President — Simonne Meurin Secretary — Estelle Sidelinker Vice-President — Beverly Ross Treasurer — Irene Jaremko We have attempted, as in previous years, to maintain a social cal- endar which has been highlighted at least once a month. September brought forth our traditional " Get-Acquainted Tea " for the freshman girls, which proved highly successful. Upon request we sponsored another October Hayride complete with cider, full moon, and hay ( ? ) , a little more of which might have helped the crowded conditions! During November, we enlarged our membership from four to nine members, when we accepted Mary Ann Dodge, Barbara Mutter, Miriam Oothout, Eleanor Ramsdell, and Dorothy Sylvia. The new girls proved to be good sports during hazing, and we are happy to call them sisters. They became official members at a candlelight ceremony following our annual banquet. Our first Co-ed party of the year was a Xmas party held just before our vacation. Open house in our lounge during this week was another big event. We girls almost had to give it up completely to the men — after all, we ' re outnumbered ! The mid-year exams which January brings called for a let-up in our social activities — one of our aims is to maintain a high scholastic average ! February brought a hen party — need any more be said? ! A second co-ed party is in store for us in March, a bowling party in April, and our annual weiner roast in May. The year has been a pleasant one, and we ' ll all be back next year for more, except for our Secretary, who graduates in June. 48 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE INSTITUTE First Row, left to right — S.

INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL The Inter-Fraternity Council is an organization to promote friendly feeling and to advance the social welfare among the Greek Letter Organizations at the New Bedford Textile Institute. The Council consists of the presidents of each fraternity and sorority and two delegates appointed by these officials to represent their organizations. This Inter-Fraternity Council has set a precedent by being the first one to be considered organized with elected officers. The first slate of officers, president, James Price ; secretary, Beverly Ross; treasurer, Samuel Helfand; and faculty advisor, Mr. Edmund Dupre. The Council has been the first to designate a week as pledge week: has spent much time improving the Constitution; and has proved effi- cient in quickly settling any problems brought forth by any member organization. The highlight of the year was an " Inter-Fraternity Dance " which was held at the New Bedford Hotel. The Council takes pride in being the only organization in school to offer a formal affair to the entire student body. Each year the Council becomes stronger and more confident in attacking problems confronted by the fraternities and the sorority. Our main objective has been to lay a foundation on which future Inter- Fraternity Councils can be built.

FOOTBALL TEAM New Bedford Textile Institute ' s football team had a surprisingly successful season, considering the fact that the team was hampered by many injuries to key players. There is no doubt that the loss of O ' Brien, Stevens, Silvia, Smedstead, and Thatcher, for long periods of time, kept the team from reaching greater heights. Coach Clarry Haskell, in an effort to bring college competition to the Institute, scheduled many of the better small-colleges in the East. Though Clarry had little help in the coaching department, trainer Larry Chongarlides proved to be a great asset to the team and its spirit. Textile, for the second straight year, opened against Maritime. After a scoreless first half the Red Raiders marched fifty-two yards for a touchdown, scoing on a Richards to Stevens pass. In the fourth quarter Johnny Silvia bucked over from the two yard line for the clinching score. Against New Haven Teachers College, the team faced an all-veteran squad. Though outclassed in the first half, our boys marched seventy-five yards for a score in the third period with Thatcher crashing over from ten yards out. Tom Long played a great defensive game. Wentworth became our second victim of the season. Still smarting over last year ' s 0-0 tie, our boys went quickly to work. After Wentworth had staged a series of goal line stands, " Ducky " Thatcher swivel-hipped fourteen yards for the score. Playing its first home night game, the Red Raiders upset the unbeaten U. S.S. Kearsage team. Sparked by the sensational pass catching of Ralph Stevens and the defensive play of Ted Lowney, " Gil " Schofield, and Leo Kubel, the team gained a well- earned victory. New Britain State Teachers struck fast in the opening half to pile up a sizeable lead. Sparked by the running and passing of Romeo Richards and the defensive play of Gifford and Gajda, the Teachers were held on even terms during the remainder of the game. Textile showed its fighting spirit by coming from behind to defeat a strong Quonset Naval Air Station team. The first score came on a Silvia to Carvalho lateral play that covered fifty-five yards. With only seconds left to play, Don McCauley made a circus catch of a pass in the end zone to give our boys a hard-earned victory. The Newport Naval game was a bitterly fought contest with Textile able to score but once, that being set up on a brilliant sixty-five yard run by " Dick " Carbonaro. The sailors, held scoreless throughout most of the game, pushed across a touchdown in the dying moments of the game to tie the score. 52 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE INSTITUTE Against Adclphi College the Red Raiders met their toughest opposition of the year. This team was rated by many leading sports writers as the best small college team in the East, hi this game " Clarry " introduced the Haskell spread, which scored two touchdowns on a team which had only been scored upon once previously. Kuliga ami Calnan played untiringly on defense. Making its longest trip of the season Coach Haskell ' s griddcrs played the powerful Long Island Aggies. In this game it was Textile ' s inability to score that spelled the difference between victory and defeat. Bachand displayed superb ball handling through- out the game. In the final game of the season the Red Raiders met their arch rivals, Lowell Textile Institute, for the first time on a football field. It was a bitterly fought game with the " Weavers " scoring early before cur boys could settle down and dig in. McCauley ' s circus catch set up the lone New Bedford score by Richards .

BASKETBALL TEAM NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE INSTITUTE The New Bedford Textile Basketball Team, under the guidance of Coach Francis Tripp, opened the 1949-1950 season facing a twenty- one game schedule. The Red Raiders faced such top-notch teams as Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stonehill College, Middlebury College, Norwich College, Assumption College, Lowell Textile Insti- tute, Bradford Durfee Technical Institute, and Philadelphia Textile Institute. With the addition of " Denny " Moniz, " Red " Blanchard, " Swisher " Bradley, and " Gil " Schofield, plus the return of old dependables such as " Streaky " McCauley, " Lefty " Haworth, Fred Burke, Bill Wilson, and Johnny Silvia, Coach Tripp tried many combinations in an effort to find a smooth, well-balanced five. This year ' s Junior Varsity, con- sisting of " Don " Morton, " Ducky " Thatcher, " Len " Hackett, Harry Wrench, " Jerry " Dloughy, and Ralph Stevens, gave the school high hopes for the future. In the opening game of the season Textile played host to Gordon College. In winning 44-37, the Red Raiders lost the services of " Lefty " Haworth for over a month. Moniz and Burke hit the strings for 29 points. Without the services of the star center the team made a fine show- ing against Middlebury and Norwich. Despite a terrific uphill struggle in the closing minutes of the game, the team was unable to overcome a first period deficit, losing to Bryant College by only four points. Moniz and Bradley combined to score 40 points. THE FABRICATOR. 1950 55 One of the highlights of the season was the first appearance of an M. I. T. team on a local court. Bradley, filling in at center, helped keep Textile ahead most of the way, but the height of our opponents finally took its toll. Despite the return of " Lefty " Haworth, who scored 21 points, our boys were nosed out by an inspired Bridgewater State Teachers College, in our second conference game. Trailing by 8 points with less than ten minutes to play, the Red Raiders rolled to the front beating Gordon College by two points. In resuming our old rivalry with Durfee, we met an all-veteran squad. The big difference was height, with Durfee controlling the boards throughout most of the game. McCauley ' s backboard work and Haworth ' s 22 points shone throughout defeat. Our boys rolled over Massachusetts Maritime Academy with Moniz, Haworth, and Burke tossing in 51 points between them. The Red Raiders, in defeating the Newport Naval Prep squad, had a prolific night at the foul line, netting 22 points on iree throws alone. The team in annexing its third straight victory defeated a well- balanced U. S. Naval College quintet. McCauley ' s 6 points and Scho- field ' s 9 were very vital in the victory. Avenging an earlier defeat, the team overpowered a surprised Bridgewater Club by the lopsided score of 66-33. A fast and clever Bryant College quintet put an end to Textile ' s winning streak by a 72-60 score. Thatcher hit for 12 points while Blanchard played a clever floor game. Fred Burke, tossing in one of the most decisive baskets of his career, with only seconds left in the game, gave Textile a 40-39 upset victory over Assumption College. Pulling one of the biggest upsets of the season our boys bowled over the previously undefeated Stonehill College. Moniz, hitting with a onehander with seconds left, iced the game against the Conference leaders. The Becker College game scheduled for home, had to be called off due to inclement weather. Textile, finding Stonehill much stronger on their home court, dropped a 51-40 decision. The determining factor in this game was the 31 fouls called against our boys against 13 for the home team. Fighting an uphill battle all the way Textile forged ahead of Durfee, only to lose with five seconds left to play. Our boys traveled to Philadelphia for the final game of the season, meeting a strong Philadelphia Textile Institute Team. After leading for over three periods, Textile fell behind in the final period, losing 57-47. 56 NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE INSTITUTE BASEBALL With Clarry Haskell at the helm, Textile began its 1950 baseball season. Due to a spell of cold weather at the start of the season, many of the players developed sore throwing-arms. Because of this, Coach Haskell found it difficult to get the boys into top playing condition. Due to graduation, shifts had to be made and many new faces were seen in the lineup. The returning veterans were Manchester, Silvia, Letourneau, Sirois, Vanasse, Carbonaro, Helfand, Kubel, and Pappas. The new faces joining the squad this year were Dunham, Lake, Paul and John Lowney, Haworth, Schaller, and Wood. Though Art Sirois pitched a brilliant five hitter against Suffolk University, the bad breaks of the second and third innings could not be overcome. Textile ' s hits were divided between Carbonaro, Wood, and Sirois. In our game against Bridgewater, Textile was forced to use three pitchers. The last relief pitcher, Don Schaller, held the Teachers at bay for the remaining innings. Lake ' s three hits in four times at bat were Textile ' s offensive highlight. After his brilliant relief job against Bridgewater, Coach Haskell gave the pitching nod to Don Schaller against Durfee. Again Bob pitched fine ball until the fourth inning when he had to be relieved by Lake. John put out the fire and coasted to victory. Leo Kubel ' s four for five and Chinky Vanasse ' s three pick-offs at second base put the game in the bag for Textile. With Art Sirois pitching his best game of the year, Textile defeated Becker College. In winning, " Art " faced but thirty-two men, thirteen of them going down via the strike-out route. Sam Helfand did a tre- mendous job afield, making two fine catches. Letourneau starred at bat with three hits, while Kubel, Pappas, and Lake each drove out a double. Playing Bridgewater for the second time, Textile was behind 8-0 at the end of the fourth inning. Pecking away at the lead, our boys picked up single markers in the fifth and sixth innings and fell just short of tying the score with five runs in the seventh. Dick Carbonaro connected for four hits in four trips, one of which was a three run double. Pappas ' s two hits were also important, while Schaller pitched good ball in relief with Dunham behind the bat. Playing their final game of the season, our boys met the Quonset Naval Air Station Team in the concluding event of the homecoming weekend. John Lowney, who had arm trouble most of the season, drew the starting assignment. Textile had a 1-0 lead when the rains came and the game was washed out.

FRIENDS OR ENEMIES " EASY RUDY " " FRUITS OF VICTORY " " SAVED BY YESHOUA " SOCCER The 1949-50 New Bedford Textile Institute Soccer Team was a stirring example of amity and fellowship. The team was made up of an aggregation of hooters from eight countries, including France, Chile, Mexico, Brazil, Republic of Haiti, Argentina, Israel, and the United States. Coach Fred Beardsworth took on a tough job in attempting to find a winning com- bination from a congregation of mixed tongues and different styles of play. His success can be seen by the great record his team assembled. Manager Herbert Berger was a valuable asset to the team as well as its spirit. The team traveled to Bridgewater to meet a tough Bridgewater State Teachers College in their opening game of the year. The game was a very rough one with the first score being accounted for by " Chick " Sevilla. " Chick " also tallied the second goal on a beautiful pass by Carlos Hirmas. The final score came on a Bernier to Chaul pass play. Walker and Ventura played well defensively. 3-0. Playing host to Lowell in their second game of the season, our boys went quickly to work, routing their opponents 6 to 0. Carlos Hirmas led the scoring, booting home two goals, while Checa, Sevilla, and Brandt contributed one apiece. Great defensive play by Victor Hirmas. Bernier, and Mitrani, plus the fine goal tending of Marco Yeshcua held the visitors scoreless. Suffolk University became our third victim of the season, and offered little opposi- tion, going down to defeat 7 to 0. Brandt led the scorers, booting in three goals. Carlos Hirmas and Ivan Roy scored one apiece, Marco Yeshoua continued his great wcrk in the nets. 7-0. Traveling to Providence, the team met Rhode Island College of Education. Again Textile showed their great offensive power by booting home eight goals to win 8 to 0. Checa was at his best booting in four goals. 8-0. Playing Bridgewater for the second time, our boys met a much improved club, which put up a good battle until Checa drove home the first goal. Checa scored another goal a few minutes later, and Brandt booted home the clincher, adding another win to our quickly growing list. 3-0. After amassing a streak of five straight victories our boys were called upon to meet one of their toughest opponents of the season in Boston University. Coach Beardsworth felt this would be the toughest hurdle of the season for the team. Belloti, returning to the lineup for the first time since the Suffolk game, played a great game, scoring Textile ' s first goal. Carlos Hirmas booted home a penalty shot and " Chick " Sevilla added the clincher in the final period. The opposition was again held scoreless. 3-0. Traveling to Fall River, our boys met some trouble. Although they were leading their opponents 3 to 1, the game was awarded to Durfee via the forfeit route. This action was brought about by an argument which broke out in the second half. Playing Rhode Island College of Education for the second time our boys had little trouble, rolling to an 11 to victory over an outclassed opponent. Checa scored three while the Hirmas brothers, Carlos and Victor, tallied two apiece. Chehade and Chaul each contributed a goal besides playing great defensive games. 11-0. In the last game of the season Textile met Durfee and this was the game the boys were really pointing to. Though they were held scoreless in the first period, the team really got rolling in the second, with Carles Hirmas tallying twice. Checa bocted in a goal in the third and Carlos again found the range with seconds left in the game. 1-0. The team finished the year with an outstanding record of eight victories and one defeat, that being a disputed forfeit loss to arch-rival Durfee.

" " Will you elaborate, Prof., " your editor ventured. Prof. Broadnieadow rose to his full stature, which is average- with a hat on, and said, I quote : " I had placed a 17 gm. sample of Sli in a cracked bottle, and left it down in the Chemistry cellar for future experiment. " " Just a minute Prof., why a 17 gm. sample? " " I am a member of the Give the other numbers a break club ! " " Everybody uses 5, 10, IS, 20, etc., I make a special effort to use the other numbers. Well, anyway, some freshman in the process of refilling the Commercial Ammonia bottle left the carboy un- stopped and my Sh became ammoniated in the interim. " " How could you tell it was ammoniated? " " It looked ammoniated! " " How will Ammoniated Schmolium be used to benefit mankind and industry, Prof.? " " Well, if Schmolium ever replaced Irium in tooth powder; Ammoniated Schmolium will probably prevent tooth decay among all the blendes that have the Toni. " " Yes. " " It can also be used whenever it is necessary to introduce the amino group into non-resonating, non-polar molecules. Do you know that it took Ammoniated Sh to put the amine in Antihistamine? " " I had heard. " " Furthermore if we can overcome the tendency of Ammoniated Sh to pclymerize, we can use it in machine shop as a belt dressing or as a salad dressing, for that matter. Will you join me? " " No thanks Prof., I just ate. " " Prof. Beardsworth suggested that I might use the new compound in prolonging ihe life of the picker stick, but our work in this direction has been held up. " " Why? " " What is a picker stick? " Approaching the other members of the teaching staff to record their comments on Prof. Broadmeadow ' s new success; your editor interviewed Mr. Saltus : Mr. Saltus: " I repeat, only a Schmo could ammoniate Schmolium. " Mr. Silva : " A superficial examination of this matter exposes many glaring errors. In the first place it should be presented along the lines of a technical report. The whole thing is hardly commensurate with the ideals we are striving for. " Prof. Giblin : ' I can ' t see any use for Ammoniated Sh in this department.

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- drel; and must have the smoothness and tex- ture required to prevent the edges of the engraving from being eroded bv 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 2. " » such turn-offs, thus affording L ' ti 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.
