Juniors 18 Rhode Island State College 19 History of the Class of 1913 Perhaps “13” is the unlucky number, but it is with many happy recollections that the Class of 1913 presents you with its history. We started, of course, as green little Freshmen, and how that big sign with the Freshman Rules opened our innocent eyes! But we were proud to be the first class to whom the rules were applied. How about the football game? The score was a tie 5-5. Probably 1912 remembers the occasion. It was a lucky day for them. However, they beat us badly in the other games and we had to swallow our disappointment as best we could. “Self praise goes but a little ways,” but 1913 has been a class of originators, heart breakers, and trouble makers; the first to wear the Freshman caps, to celebrate with a bonfire and banquet the burning of the caps, and to hold “Freshman Nights” in Davis Hall. We were instrumental also in assisting our superior Sophomores in wielding the paint brushes. Hush! Did somebody whisper “1912 class banner?” In November of our Sophomore year we gave our first dance, the Sophomore Hop. It was a gala affair and “old timers” said it was the best function of its kind ever held at Rhode Island. That year we left a clean card in athletics, defeat- ing the Freshmen in all four branches. This same year we took a thoughtful interest in our little Freshmen, but they seemed not to appreciate it; and once were even so bold as to hurt our feelings, for which we gave them a stern reprimand. Now we have sobered down a little, for with the work of our Grist, the Junior Prom, and numerous other duties, we have not had time to get into mischief. In conclusion we may say that we have always been prominent in social and athletic activities. We have been well represented on the football, basketball, baseball, and track teams. Our men have been the mainstay of the Glee Club, the Quar- tette, and, — well perhaps we have boasted enough. Next year will see the members of the Class of 1913 with a slowly and painfully acquired dignity, the “Grand Old Seniors” at Rhode Island. 20 Rhode Island State College Juniors Officers Honorary Member, Prof. R.

V. “Barney,” “Ben” Agriculture “O were mine eyeballs into bullets turned That 1 in rage might shoot them at your faces.” Barney made himself famous in his Freshman year by instituting the Glee Club, which has grown to be one of the leading organizations of the college under his administra- tion. As a tenor soloist he is unequalled, and his aggres- sive ability has made him one of the leaders in college activ- Glec Club (l) (2) (3); Leader (1) (2) (3); Quartette (I) (2) (3); Varsity Football (l) (2) (3); Class Football ( 1 ) (2); Class Track (1) (2); Captain (2); RiflcTeam(l) (2) ; Corporal of Band (t); Sergeant of Band (2); Drum Major (2); Chairman Soph Hop Comm.

Baldwinville, Mass. “Alex " Mechanical Engineering “Not only good and wise, but most religious.” “Wait on a bit!” Let’s call a halt! " By these ex- pressions we came to know “Alex,” the rival of Archimedes and the author of “How to teach Thermo.” Ralph has made a hit (?) in the class rooms and takes much pleasure in striving for scholastic honors. In the future we expect to hear of him drawing a salary as a mechanical engineer. Scholastic Honors (1) (2); Glee Club (1); Student Council (1); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3). Frederick Otto Aspinwali.. . Pawtucket, R. I. “Freddie” Chemical Engineering “Why, what a monstrous fellow art thou!” Freddie first saw the light of day in Pawtucket, the cradle of the cotton industry in America. Coming to R. I. from Pawtucket High School, he joined the class of 1913 in September, 1910, electing the chemical engineering course, in which he has displayed great proficiency. We look for- ward to the time when we shall know him as the rnan of the hour in the chemical world, and possibly as the dis- coverer of some new elements hitherto unheard of. Varsity Basketball (3). George Holland Baldwin, A A V Valley Falls, R. I. “Baldy” Agriculture “I am more than common tall.” Baldy first opened his cute brown eyes in Brockton, Mass., in 1892, and after giving his parents much pleasure as a model child for several years, he was transported to Cumberland, R. 1 ., where the aggie bug was inoculated into his system. He was graduated from Cumberland High in 1909, and joined us the same year. For two years he thought that he was an engineer, but in 1911 the aggie bug became predominant and he has been talking of cows Polygon; Class Baseball Manager (2); Corporal (3); Sergeant (3). Reuben Charles Bates, B P . . Providence, R. I. “Reub,” “Unc” Civil Engineering “Was he not held a learned man?” With a previous knowledge of Civil Engineering, gained in the wide, wide world, “Unc” joined us prepared for hard work. Some of this latter, combined with a little “Bluff” for the profs, has carried him along with us and kept him “one of the boys.” He made himself conspicuous in his Freshman year by making centre on his class foot- ball team. In the future we may expect to see him build- ing the West Kingston and Chickenville Railroad.

Clarence Elmer Brett, . . Brockton, Mass. “Nellie” Agriculture “Make false hair, and thatch your poor, thin roof with burthens of the dead.” “Nellie” Brett looks innocent. So he is. At least he is supposed to be, so we remind you of the fact. He eliminated himself from M. A. C. ’way back in the dim past and cast his luck with the class of ’05, R. I., but then his luck cast him and he left with a broken leg. Back he came last fall, and our only comment is that we wish he had come sooner and could stay longer. P. S. Ask the Dean of the Skirts why we call him “Nellie.” (M. A. C.) ; Treasurer Debating Society, (3); Treasurer Agricultural Society, (3) Marion Wilhelmina Borden . Providence, R. I. “Bordin,” “Sawdoff” Home Economics “Studies my lady?” To the casual observer, Marion is a wee, modest little lady, but all who know her will agree that the diminutivencss is only external. She is unprejudiced and broadminded in her views, keen and accurate in her judgments, and from the different sources of instruction in Providence, she has absorbed such a fund of general knowledge that she sel- dom finds it necessary to consult her text-books. It has been whispered that her weakness is Epicureanism. Accompanist for Glee Club (l); Class Basketball Team (2); Treasurer Y. W. C. U. (2); Vice-President Dramatic Society (3); Secretary Class (3); A ssociate Editor Grist Board (3). Edwin Champlin . . . Westerly, R. I. “Champ” Electrical Engineering “Give thy thoughts no tongue.” Champ is one of those quiet, influential fellows who make good friends with everybody. Because he is a day student we arc unable to enjoy his company as much as we would like. Champ does not let studies interfere with college life, and governs himself accordingly. He attends recitations regularly, although we have never learned the reason for it. Class Football (1); Class Baseball (1) (2); Class Basket- ball (1); Varsity Baseball (2). Benjamin Cohen, 4A P . New Bedford, Mass. “Bennie” Electrical Engineering “Here’s a fellow will help you.” “Bennie” is a lively fellow possessing good judgment and an unknown store of energy. He is master of ceremon- ies at all important celebrations and the authorities can- not dispute his loyalty to his alma mater on such occa- sions. Fair play is always seen on his smiling face. Ben- nie’s jokes and fondness for a good time make him, above all, an ideal classmate and “one of the boys.” Five-pole dynamo is to be his future invention in the electrical en- gineering line.

Marguerite White and Dorothy Dearborn Elkins, • " A ? a PP le cleft in tw0 is not more twin than these two creatures.” " Which is which?” That’s the current question even now, for the Twins are like unto the proverbial “two peas.” Some people learned to distinguish between them by the curve of e of the hair; others,_to their undoing, by the orange-bordered sweater, r the wai - —m-bouquet. The Twins arc honor students, being alwavs diligent in their business, and have attempted such monstrosities on the side as a “chem” elective and the forestry course. “Twins” are always amiable, most class-spirited, and not so good as to be averse to go out via fire-escapes, blow fuses, and play April Fool jokes on their befuddled classmates. “Dot Twin”— Girl’s Basketball (t); Manager Girls’ Basketball (2); Class Basketball (2); Scholastic Honors (1) (2); Vice-President of Y.

A. A. (3). Esther Loomis Congdon Wakefield, R. I. “Estair,” “Condin” Home Economics “I pray you, be acquainted with this maid; she comes to do you good.” Esther started in with 1912, but stayed away a year, and on returning, when we were Sophomores, became a valuable addition to our class. She is jollity and good- nature itself, being seldom provoked to wrath unless called “a farmer from Rube-Town.” She is a good student, com- bining common-sense and a contempt for the “dig” with natural ability. As for the future, we may say that the symbolical side-curls and pussy-cat are not for our classmate. Class Basketball (2); President of Y. V. C. U.

I. “Bill” Applied Science “He’s a strange fellow himself, and knows it not.” Whose dat guy over there tickling the ivories? Oh, that’s “Bill” from East Greenwich. Bill received his prep- aration at the East Greenwich Academy graduating “magna cum laude”(?). He entered R. I. S. C. with the illustrious class of 1913, and soon became prominent in the chem. lab. He was a member of the famous “Wells House Gang” in his Freshman year, his specialty being rough-housing. However he soon steadied down and is a hard conscientious worker. He’ll make good!

His cheery face and ready wit drive away care and sorrow wherever he goes. He follow ' s his daily routine quietly and is envied by the en- gineers of the class, who come to him for aid in solving dif- ficult problems.

His most serious troubles are girls and lessons, his time being divided between them accord- ing to the strength of their attraction. Hawkie’s talent as a comedian is not lacking and he often creates a dis- turbance vocally. He takes an active part in social events and proves to be a good companion. Glee Club (1) (2) (3); Asst.

I. “Hoppy” Electrical Engineering “A sad face, a reverend carriage, a slow tongue.” “Hoppy” hailed from the green hills of Shannock and joined us as a Freshman. He first made himself famous as “shark” of the math class in his Sophomore year. The fair sex has been a very important factor in his college life, often causing him to forget his mechanics and thermo. We expect to see him shine some day as an electrical en- gineer, and we wish him the greatest success.

The one possible excep- tion to his constancy is his choice of (1 blush to say it) the fair sex. Although there is no doubt of his popularity with the girls, Walt has not yet chosen any particular one. But judging from other things, we have no need to worry about this for in all matters Cap’s decisions are always final. He has many friends and it can be truly said that those who know him best love him most.

Thomas Kyle Central Falls, R. I. “Tom,” “Spartow” Agriculture “And still his tongue ran on.” Tom fell in step with ’13 in our Sophomore year. His peculiarities may be due to the fact that he has spent sev- eral months in Panama and became partly naturalized while there. He is noted for disturbing the peace of the Dormitory in the early hours of the morning. The name “Sparrow” was given him because his tongue is never still. Nevertheless, Tom is a jolly good fellow and ex- pects to be a scientific farmer some day. Edwin Roy Noyes, B t . . . East Greenwich, R. I. “Noisy” Electrical Engineering “ 1 would be quiet.” “Noisy” or “No-yes” as he is sometimes called, “preped” at the East Greenwich Academy where he was president of his class for four years. He entered R. 1 . S. C. with the class of 1913, and took up Electrical Engineer- ing, covering himself with — no, not fame but — lubricat- ing oil from the dynamo.

His good looks at once made him a favorite with the girls, and Davis Hall has since been an important place in his career. He studies occasion- ally and succeeds in telling Pa Webster a good deal about railroads. Cutic thinks a great deal for a small chap, and with the noble brow he already has, he may yet develop into a great engineer. His motto is — “Never do to-day what you can put off till to-morrow.

" “Frenchie” is that apparently quiet, demure, unassuming individual who is always floating around. Up to his Junior year he was a bachelor, — but now, . . . well, “enuf said.” Although “Frenchie " is a “shark” in his studies, he never lets them interfere with an opportunity to be “one of the bunch.

William Henry Tully, QX . . Peacedale, R. I. “Bill,” “Boomer” Applied Science “I ' ll fight till from my bones the flesh be hacked.” Behold that chesty frontage! Such we beheld when the person owning this joined our 1913 crew. Bill, rather Wil- liam Henry Alodphus Esau Boomer Tully, believes that variety is the spice of life — that is as far as girls are concern- ed. Since he has been here, he has played a masterful part in all athletics, both class and varsity. He can be distinguished in the Glee Club by his feminine voice. We wonder what gives him that smiling face. Perhaps “Hamilton.” Class Football (1) (2); Capt.

He delights in such courses as forestry and nature study, chiefly, perhaps, because they give opportunity to stroll among the daisies. “Dukie” is a good student and is directing his thoughts toward teaching.

Even though short in stature, he has proved to be one of the stars on several athletic teams. Nor have his efforts been confined to one line of activity. He has made a decided impression on the fair “co-eds” who always like to sec his sunny face at mealtime. His rendering of Scotch melodics has won fame in Old South Hall.

Norwich, Conn. “Wilky” Civil Engineering “Still water runs deep.” Who is that quiet, retiring young man whom we always find chiefly engrossed in the intrigues of some railroad curve? O, that is Wilky, charter member of the Drill Hall Fusser’s Club and chief jollier of the girls on the student wagon. Nevertheless, during his two years Wilky has made many friends by his cheery smile and good nature and we all expect some day to find him in the ranks of our fore- most civil engineers. Susie Stanton Wood Slocums, R. I. “Susie” Home Economics “By heaven, she is a dainty one.” Have you ever seen a neat, dainty maid go tripping across the campus, a book under her arm, and a very anxious expression on her face? That is our Susie. Nature intended her for a coquette, but after trying experiences in Chem. Lab. and other places she has wisely ( ?) concluded that boys are “perfectly disgusting.” Since she is a faithful classmate, a most prodigious and conscientious student, we are assured of her success as a prospective director of ideas.

As a student he is doing fine work, and to date his record is enviable. In the glee club he is second to none as a basso, and his work as a member of the quartette always attracts attention, owing to the fine quality of his voice. His “hobby” is chemistry and some day we expect to hear great things of him in this line.

The 1913 Grist 37 History of the Class of 1914 As a goodly number of Freshmen we arrived at the Rhode Island State College, in September, 1910, with wonderful dreams of college life. Not long after our first registration, the Junior president called a meeting of the class in the chapel, to give us a little advice and start us in our college career. We elected our class officers and Dr. Sechrist as our honorary member, and thus our history began. College was not long in progress, however, when we found ourselves face to face with a challenge to football by the Sophomores. Of course, we accepted and played. It was a long, hard-fought battle but fate bequeathed the victory to the Sophomores and so it happened that we appeared with red ribbons, for the first time, at the reception to the poultry students in January. The Freshmen caps and rules next appeared, and then came basketball which we played, and lost by a small score to the Sophomores. During the year we founded the “Freshman Literary Society,” where many interesting debates were held. When we returned to College to begin our work the second year, we found some had left us while others were added to our number. We met the Freshmen in football, on a wet, muddy field, but we won the game and for the first time the 1914 banner floated on high. In college activities our members have often been heard. On the football team five men have played, while we have contrib- uted well to basketball, baseball and track. Many of our number are in the Glee Club, while four members showed their dramatic ability in “The College Ball.” Of our standing as students, — well, we prefer to leave that to be said by the professors themselves. 1914 Basketball Team The 1913 Grist 39 Freshmen Officers and Members Honorary Member, Prof. Marshall H.

The 1913 Grist 41 History of the Class of 1915 When the students of Rhode Island State College were assembling for the college year of 1912, the upper classmen were treated to an amusing, if not altogether interesting, sight — that of the largest Freshman Class that ever entered this insti- tution. We came from all points of the compass but it did not take us long to become acquainted, and we soon began to feel very much at home in our new surroundings. Like every other Freshman Class, our bump of freshness was well developed when we entered, and as time went on it did not tend to decrease in the least. After a great deal of talk and effort on our part to convince the other classes as to what a really wonderful crowd we were, we suffered a severe shock by the appear- ance on the bulletin board of a notice bearing the imposing title “Freshman Rules.” We read them through, and after some discussion we concluded that discretion was the better part of valor, and reconciled ourselves to the worst. On the evening of October II we were given a reception by the girls in Davis Hall and it was then that we received our first opportunity to show our class spirit. Several Sophomores were determined that we should not have our good time, and, of course, we were just as determined that we should. A scuffle took place, but after our opponents had discovered what a husky lot of fellows we had, they wisely decided that it would be better to postpone all class disputes until the annual Freshman-Sophomore football game. In due time we were challenged to this contest and of course we accepted. We had some good material and proved a tougher proposition than had been expected. However, we were at last beaten, but not without a hard struggle and a touchdown credited to our side. Next we met the Sophs in basketball and made an even better showing than in football. At the end of the game we had them tied and it took five minutes overtime for them to finally beat us. During the game, class spirit waxed strong and it was an exciting time from start to finish. Our basketball team took several out of town trips and made very creditable showings wherever they played. Unfortunately, three of our members were found guilty of disobeying the Freshman Rules, and were punished by the student council. They were forbidden the use of the student wagon, were refused admission to the Junior Prom, and placed under a ban of silence for two weeks. However, each of the culprits took his punishment like a man and proved himself a credit to his class by so doing. We have been well represented in all sports thus far carried on, and have had an R. I. man on each team. Our baseball manager has arranged a fast schedule for the class team, and by the form some of our men are showing, we arc assured of at least two or three representatives on the varsity team. 42 Rhode Island State College 1915 Football Team 1915 Basketball Team The 1913 Grist 43 Special Students Dennis Francis Barry, y V (Brown) Frank Harold Briden, A P (Brown) FTizabeth Croucher William Farl Dodge, A ' t (Brown) Archie Coggeshall Goddard, ©A Charles Varnum Johnson, PI l Hermann Harry Karmann George Mitchell Lewis .

This fall we had a game scheduled a few days after college opened, and at the manager’s request the old men of last year’s team and others interested in the game came back a week earlier for practice. A few positions were left vacant by graduates, but with the new material and a few shifts in the line-up prospects for a successful team became bright. Our first game showed that the team was working well, and since this was our first vic- tory over M. A. C. in football it will be re- membered for a long time. Rhode Island was much the lighter of the two and circled the ends with good results. M. A. C. at no time seriously threatened our goal line. The following week was spent in prepara- tion for the game with the University of Maine, at Orono, the first contest in football between the two colleges. The game was intensely in- teresting throughout. It was won for Rhode Island when Sullivan kicked a pretty drop from the thirty-yard line during the second period. The Maine team was dangerously near our goal line more than once, but was unable to score. We next met Brown at Providence, on a field wet and slippery from a drenching rain. The grandstands held a large number of loyal R. I. supporters who encour- aged the team during the whole game. Brown made two touchdowns, one in the second and one in the fourth period. Line shifts were a prominent feature of the game, and Brown used the forward pass with telling effect. Our team fought hard and proved to Brown that the games of previous years were not accidents. 50 Rhode Island State College After a ten day’s rest we played our first home game with Norwich University. The first few minutes of play were characterized by fumbles on both sides. Twice R. I. was within ten yards of their opponents goal line but lost the ball by fumbling. It looked like a no-score game, but Sullivan settled that question in the last period by making a long drop-kick, the ball passing neatly between the goal posts. Soon after this, Newton nearly made a touchdown by following good interference and dodging cleverly, but was downed on the twenty-yard line in such a manner that he had to be taken from the field. The game ended with the ball in our possession on Norwich’s ten-yard line. Three men were taken from the game on account of injuries, and others were shaken up considerably. With a crippled team in the field we played a no-score game with New York University, at New York, on a wet and slippery field. The home team was much heavier than ours, and the ball was in their hands most of the time. The ends played exceptionally well, breaking up plays and tackling at critical moments. New York tried several times to score by drop-kicking, but did not succeed. Twice we held them for downs on our ten-yard line. Still on the go, our team next stopped at Durham, to battle with our old rivals, New Hampshire. There was a strong feeling between the teams which pervaded the game and broke loose in a few cases. New Hampshire made two field goals and one safety in the early part of the game, and looked forward to an easy victory. Rhode Island held, took brace in the beginning of the second half, and matters scon looked different. Henderson recovered a punt fumbled by a New Hampshire man near their goal line, and it took only a few plays to make a touchdown. Sully kicked the goal. This made the score six to eight. With only a few minutes left to play, Rhode Island rushed the ball down the field, and Sullivan kicked the oval between the posts, and the game was ours. Some of the decisions were anything but encouraging to our team, and so too much credit can not be given them for playing as they did, in the face of defeat. At Worcester we met our second defeat of the season, the score being 0-3. Our men outplayed their opponents in every way, but for some reason were unable to score. The last game of the season was at home with Boston College. Although tired The 1913 Grist 51 out by their long trips, the players were filled with nervous eagerness which meant a sweeping victory. It was plainly seen, after the first few minutes of play, that we were too much for our rivals. Long gains were made through almost any part of the line, and our shifts plays caught the Boston boys off their guard. Barry’s work at center was commendable, that little fellow stopping every play coming his way. Although we lost one game more this year than last, the season was very successful. The regular attendance of a second team throughout the season was one of the most important factors in developing the varsity, and much praise is due them for this splendid spirit.

We take pride in the good teams we turn out and their successful competition with teams such as Trinity, New Hampshire, Massachusetts Insti- tute of Technology, and Rensselaer, and also in that we afford hard games to Williams, W esleyan and Brown. The schedule for this season was good, although shorter than in previous years. With the majority of last year’s team out for prac- tice, led by Captain Sullivan, it was evident that we were to have a good team again this year. New material from the entering class looked prom- ising, and the second team kept the varsity hus- tling. We opened the season by playing Wesleyan at Middletown. Our team played well for the first game, but they were against a championship team, and lost badly. The week following we played Brown at Provi- dence. The first half was a trifle slow. Rhode Island passed all around Brown and shot well, making the score twelve to six in her favor. The second half was much livelier. The Brown boys were aware of the fact that they were in danger of being beaten, and played accordingly. The team work which characterized their playing won them the game. New Hampshire played us next on our own floor. It was a fast game every minute, with Rhode Island always in the lead. The visitors were good players, but could not come up to their rivals who were working in splendid fashion. We played the fast William’s team at Williamstown the following Saturday. The Rhode Island team played to win, but their opponents were too much for them. The fact that we lost by only seven points shows that our team was by no means lacking. 54 Rhode Island State College Our next game was at home with Boston College, and proved to be an easy one as far as winning was concerned. It was very slow and rough most of the time. The visitors could do practically nothing to prevent our forwards from caging the ball at short intervals. The return game with New Hampshire was the next in order. New Hampshire felt that they might win on their own floor but were disappo ' ntet - Rhode Island took the lead from the start, and kept it. The game was exciting and a good example of clean basketball. The last game of the season was played at home, against Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The first few minutes of play gave evidence of two evenly matched teams. It certainly was a hard game with very few fouls, and pronounced by many as the best game seen in years. It was nip and tuck for the first three quarters, Rhode Island having but three points in her favor. The old loyal Rhode Island spirit came out at the beginning of the last quarter, and spurred the team on to its best work. The passing by the visitors was remarkable, but they were unable to take the ball near enough to their basket to make sure shots. With only a few minutes to play, the Rhode Island team made one final spurt, and caged five baskets as the result of clever passing and good shooting. The way the home team came back in those last few minutes won the admiration of all the spectators. Although some games were lost, the season, as a whole, was successful. Holding such teams as Williams, Wesleyan, and Brown to the low scores we did, s a good criterion of our team. January 6 At Middletown Rhode Island 13 Wesleyan Univ.

Cobb (Coach) Briden Barlow Sullivan Redding Newton Price Doll Varsity Baseball Team = 5b Rhode Island State College Baseball A short time after the close of the basket- ball season a call was issued for baseball candi- dates. Several new men and the remainder of last year’s team reported. The weather was inclement, and most of the practice before the first game was done insid e. Rhode Island met Brown at Providence, the game being the first one for each team. Warner did good work in the box until the sixth inning, Safford taking his place for the remainder of the game. Newton secured the one run for Rhode Island. Our next game was with Boston Univer- sity at Kingston. We were their superiors, and won by a score of 5-3. Only once did they have the lead. Errors were numerous, and the Boston pitcher was an easy man to hit. After two weeks of hard practice we met the University of Maine on the College Field. This team, which gave Harvard such a scare the day before, suffered defeat before our nine by one run. The weather was fine and the game intensely interesting throughout. Both played well, making few errors, and it was not until the last ball was pitched that we were sure of victory. Newton and Sullivan batted well for Rhode Island, and Redding played well in the field. The next game was the opening one in baseball between Norwich University and Rhode Island. The visitors took the lead from the start with their opponents in close pursuit, the score being tied at one time. Norwich was exceptionally good at batting, and proved her ability in this line by making clean hits at the right time, resulting in a lead of several runs. Their pitcher did excellent work, striking out our men in one, two, three order. We felt a little cheap for letting such a large score occur. Capt. -elect Hidden The 1913 Grist 57 The next game was with Boston College. Our opponents started off at a fast pace, hitting Warner hard, but we kept close behind. Tully knocked a hom e run, bringing in two men, which helped matters considerably. Boston promptly put in another pitcher at this time, but to no great advantage. The game was short- ened in order to let the visitors catch a train. Had the nine innings been played we feel sure that the result would have been entirely different. The game ended with a score of 6 to g against us. We lost the game with Worcester Polytechnic at the latter’s field, by a score of 3-6. The game was well played, it being mainly a pitcher’s battle. Worcester Polytechnic Institute was fortunate in having men on bases at the right time. Champlin injured his finger, and several changes had to be made. Sullivan excelled at the bat for Rhode Island. In our next game we were shut out by Massachusetts Agricultural College, the visitors making six runs. They batted very well, and did not allow our men to get beyond second base with one exception. We had a chance to score then, but the man was not a sprinter and lost the opportunity. Safford did good work at pitch- ing, and Tully made connections with the ball several times, but fast fielding by our opponents spoiled the chances of scoring. Our team next took a trip to Durham, to play New Hampshire. Crippled by the absence of Tully and Sully, we suffered defeat 3-9. Our men could do nothing against their big pitcher, while New Hampshire hit with little difficulty. We managed to get three runs toward the end of the game. Doll, at second base, and Bridcn behind home plate, did good work for Rhode Island. The season closed with Rensselaer at Troy, N. Y. Rain fell during the first part of the game, which made it uncomfortable for the players. The teams were evenly matched, but fate was against us. Our poor hitting handicapped us as before, and the game ended with the score 10-7 in favor of Rensselaer.

Barlow Track Outside of interclass meets, there have been no opportunities for the track athlete at Rhode Island until within the last three years. A relay team was formed during the winter, and a race was won from New Hampshire. This led to further interest in track, and an intercollegiate meet was held in the spring. On June 3, 191 1, we met New Hampshire for the second dual meet, this time at Durham. The track was quite different from the one used by our men, and it bothered them considerably. New Hampshire won easily, taking all but three first places, and the majority of second and third places. The time in all the running events was slow. Our rivals took a big lead when it came to field events, leaving us behind at the close of the meet by a margin of thirty-nine points. Irons proved the star for Rhode Is- land, winning two first places. Event. 100-Yard Dash . 220- Yard Hurdles 440-Yard Run Winners. 1st. Kemp, N. H. . 2d. Webb, R. I. 3d. Swasey, N. H. 1st. Irons, R.

The 1913 Grist 61 Interclass Meet On June 21, the Sophomores, 1913, had little difficulty in walking away with the interclass track meet. The Freshmen took second place, followed by the Juniors and Specials. Y. Caldwell, the only entry for the Specials took two first places and a second. Hawkins starred for the Freshmen, winning half the total number of points taken by his class. The Juniors took their points in the field events, winning easily.

Fourteen preparatory schools, from all parts of the state, sent their best athletes to compete for the prizes. The meet was held on the new running track which had just been completed. The races were close and exciting. At the close of the last event Technical was found to be the winner, with Moses Brown and Hope Street High second and third, respectively. The remaining points went to various schools, although some were unable to win points at all. Medals were awarded to the boys at the close of the meet. The occasion proved to be a great success, made possible by the men in charge, and the active aid offered by others. 220-Yard Hurdles . . 1st. G. Jetter, Classical 28 2-5 see. 2d.

Nutting President Dorothy D. Elkins Vice-President Ada L. Harding Secretary Marguerite W. Elkins Treasurer After much controversy and opposition ending in one unsuccessful attempt, the Women’s Athletic Association was finally organized in 191 1 . The constitution is modeled on those of the athletic clubs of Mt. Holyoke and Smith College, the object of the association being “to further all athletic interests among the women students.” Each year insignia in the form of a blue shield four and one-half inches high bearing an anchor and the letters “R. I.” in white are awarded to three women who have shown an interest in at least one organized sport, stood in gym work and fulfilled certain other requirements. Last year we established friendly relations with Brown, Sargent, and Rad- cliffe but, owing to the small number of girls this season basketball games with other colleges was forbidden; and since for the same reason class games are impossible, that sport has been temporarily abandoned. In its place indoor baseball and tennis are indulged in two nights a week in the gym. Through the efforts of Miss Merrow, who has always been most actively inter- ested in the association the plot of ground back of the vineyard was secured to the girls for an athletic field; and under her direction and with the aid of Prof. Webster it was leveled, two tennis courts laid out, and space provided for a future running track. The only request the association has now to make is, “A few more girls.” Wearers of Insignia Allae C. Slater, ’12 Bertha M.

For a year nearly hast thou slumbered. But at last is the time of thy durance at an end. II. For lo! thou wert saved when in the still night watches that which ye did eat was taken from you, and ye bread bearers and Chapel seats adorned ye stately campus. III. And did again offer up fat calf and geese on the altar to the most high Prexie. IV. And did take the key by which the Holy Two guard ye maidens. V. But that is but a drop of the blessings to come. To be forged out in the stilly nights. VI. But all is preordained. VII. For upon a certain day there shall be heard wedding bells. And Lucy shall depart. Praise ye Him from whom all blessings flow. VIII. And the Idol called T. C. which the Unseeing hath set before thee, hath now a lesser Idol, — The Mighty William. But prunes shalt be his portion. IX. And the Idol called Lucy which hath put herself before thee, hath now also a lesser Idol, — The Dignified Nellie. X. And Tip doth have his locks shorn twice every nine moons. XI.

The society sent the usual Christmas box to the settlement children in Providence. In conjunction with the Y M. C. A. they gave the annual informal receptions to the Freshmen and to the Poultry Students, and in May an entertainment, “Holiday Tableau,” in Library Hall, the proceeds of which sent delegates to Northfield. Miss Esther Congdon and Miss Marguerite Elkins represented us this year at the Young Women’s Gen- eral Conference. 96 Rhode Island State College Debating Society Officers Carle M. Bigelow President Frank H. Briden Vice-President Harold W. Browning Secretary Clarence E. Brett Treasurer The annual debate with M. A. C. took place at Amherst, April 14. The subject was, “Resolved: That Immigration should be further restricted.” Rhode Island as represented by Messrs. Briden and Bigelow, both ’12, upheld the affirmative, while Messrs. Osterlenk and Hemenway spoke for M. A. C. and upheld the negative side of the question. The chairman was the Hon. Theo. M. Connor, Ex-Mayor of Northampton. The judges were Professor Westover of Amherst College, Mr. Edward Shan and Mr. John Hamlin, lawyers of Northampton. Both sides presented strong arguments and rebuttals and the debate proved very interesting. The decision was very close but was given to Massachusetts. The arguments were in our favor, but our presentation and delivery did not prove equal to that of Massachusetts. As this is only our second attempt at this activity we feel that next year we will be able to gain the decision for we have gained much experience in the two trials.

Osgood. The presentation went off smoothly, if one may overlook a slightly premature lowering of the curtain in the last act just at the “critical mo- ment.” This fall the club has been resting on its laurels and recuperating before the next strenuous attempt. 98 Rhode Island State College Awaiting Spring Agricultural Club Walter C.

Congdon Secretary Under the leadership of Miss Merrow, the Girls’ Assembly was formed at the beginning of the year. The purpose of the Assembly is to acquaint the girls with subjects of general interest to college women by holding weekly meetings, where reports are heard and discussions held on assigned topics. Some of these topics have been, “Vocations for College Women,” “The Betterment of the College,” “Means by which the women of Rhode Island may become better acquainted with the College,” and “Student Government.” The last topic was under discussion for several meetings. Alumnae of various colleges spoke on that phase of life in their own college. Mrs. Cobb spoke for Mt. Holyoke College, Mrs. Putney for the Universities of Missouri and Illinois, Miss Barnes for Simmons College, and Miss Burlingame for Smith College. As a result of these meetings the Assembly has decided to try for a shor t time the experiment of Student Government at Rhode Island. 100 Rhode Island State College The Science Club Officers Prof. Royal L.

That was what Lieuten- ant Stahl proposed and the battalion unanimously voted to enjoy. Regulation khaki suits were obtained, tents with side walls were borrowed from the Rhode Island Militia, and for the second week of May all recitations were suspended and the “soldiers” went to camp. The first day, Monday, was given up mostly to laying the camp, pitching the tents and making general preparations for the week. The site of Camp Rodman, as it was named, was the plot of ground back of the athletic house. Officers’ Row extended west from the pump-house and from it A Street and B Street ex- tended south. The athletic building served as guard- house and the boarding hall as mess room. By Tuesday the routine of army life was well established. Reveille sounded at 6 a. M. Guardmounting, battalion review, sham battles filled the days. Mess calls sounded at 7 a. m., I2M., and 6 p. m. School call sounded at 7:30 p. m., when the soldiers off guard gathered on the bleachers and listened to talks on camp life by Lieutenant Stahl. At 9:30 p. m., the camp lights were extinguished, and the guards all night patrolled the camp, where the tired soldiers lay, wearied to the point of ex- haustion, yet never sleeping. Privates realized, as never before, the advantages at- tached to the ranks of com- missioned officers, and there was no soldier by the end of a Late one night an explosion occurred, and the frightened soldiers perceived through the tent flaps the faithful guard retreating at full speed from the danger. A Company Street week, but aspired to a position in the band. 104 Rhode Island State College Thursday saw several mis- creants in the guard-house, and the next day one of the prisoners, unable to en- dure longer the awful pres- sure of the life, deserted. He had been brought to the mess room under guard, but had escaped their vigilance while they ate, and led them an exciting chase over roads and through fields until four o’clock in Leisure Hours the afternoon when he was captured hiding on the top of a market wagon in a nearby yard. He was courtmartialed and sen- tenced to death, but owing to the lack of time occa- sioned by the close of the week, the details of his death and burial were omitted. On the Monday follow- ing, Captain Simmons of the United States Army inspected the battalion. The inspection occupied the entire morning and con- sisted, in part, of a sham battle between the two companies. That afternoon the battalion broke camp, and the soldiers petitioned the faculty for a day of rest and recuperation The Guard House The 1913 Grist 105 Commencement Week June 18-22, 1911 PROGRAM Sunday, June 18 3 :oo p. m.

We’ll strive to keep your name untarnished; We’ll prove you strong and true; Safely you’ll guide us, Whate’er betide us; We can put our trust in you. Chorus: O, Rhode Island, Dear Rhode Island, Alma Mater we love well; May your mem’ry ever with us stay, May your glory never fade away. O, Rhode Island, Dear Rhode Island, Let your colors, white and blue, Lead us on to vict’ry wheresoe’er we go; We’ll be ever staunch and true to you. Though we to other lands may wander, To distant shores and climes may go, That we are still your strong supporters, Our loyalty will show. And to your portals oft returning, To greet our friends once more; With echoes ringing, We’ll join in singing Your loud praises as of yore. Steadfast in loyalty together, Sing once again a chorus clear; Sing to our fairest Alma Mater, Greet her with cheer on cheer! Steadfast in loyalty together, Render the honor due!

Mr. Rodman’s lectures were followed by a scries of nocturnal rehearsals on the fire escapes, so that the young ladies have now mastered even the fine details, and entertain no alarm as to their safety under any circumstances.
