Prologue . . |NCL AGAIN the supply of grain for the old Grist has run low. It has been a difficult task to keep the old wheel busy and the old miller Rhody contented. Now once more he is await- ing patiently a good harvest. For sixteen years he has supplied his patrons faithfully with grindings and chaff, and so may he have a big harvest this year for the enrichment of the com- munity and the happiness of all. The planters of the seed and those who have toiled honestly to bring about a good crop have given their best to the cause. Let us judge them accord- ingly.

Y. 13 History of the Class of JJ 11 In September, 1910, some sixty-five decidedly green-looking specimens, the finished product of various preparatory schools, alighted from the train at King- ston and inquired the way to Rhode Island State College. We were received in a manner, common to all new-comers at an institution, and soon our green color had entirely made its disappearance. The co-eds of our class soon gave a recep- tion in Davis Hall in honor of the fellows, who through the unexpected appear- ance of the Sophs, had some difficulty in keeping the engagement. Shortly after registration, the President of 1912, called our members together and then we organized as a class and elected our officers for the year. Dr. Sechrist was at that time chosen as our honorary member, but since then he has severed his connections with the institution and Prof. Dickinson now holds this place of distinction. In all athletics during our Freshman year, we displayed marked ability, yet were unable to defeat the Sophomores in any sport. Early in the year, the “Freshman Literary Society " was formed, and many interesting programs were arranged. The benefits of this organization were made manifest in our Sopho- more year when 1914 won the Inter-Class Championship in debating. During our Sophomore year we were victorious in all branches of athletics, defeating the Freshman in Football by an overwhelming victory of 22-5. In the class-room, 1914 has made an enviable record, and its members are found to be leaders in all student activities. 1914 is well represented on, and its members are the mainstays of all athletic teams that uphold the honor of Rhode Island. To show our ability and not boast about it has been our slogan. The time is rapidly approaching when it will become necessary for us to assume the dignity of a senior. The fourth and last act of the wonderful play is soon to appear on the stage, the end will come before it can be hardly realized, the curtain slowly fall, and 1914 will exit from the college to which she will ever delight in bringing honor and glory. 15 16 Rhode Island Slate College 1914 Class Roll Officero Honorary Member, Prof. Leonard P.

Hop Com- mittees (2); Corporal (3) ; Grist Board (3). “Jimmy " entered R. I. in 1909 as a prep, and the following year registered in Mechanical Engineer- ing with the class of 1914. His most prominent hob- bies are four in number: the first is studying, the second plugging, the third grinding, and the fourth military drill. As a result, his path has been strewn with a vast succession of “A’s,” and, after serving faithfully in the ranks for three years, he was promoted, last fall, to the rank of corporal, for dis- tinguished bravery on the field of action. William Edward Anderson Westerly, R. I. “Bill " Agriculture Stock Judging Team (2); Secretary Agricultural Club (2); Vice President (3); Corporal Co. C. (3). When the various entrances in the noble halls of R. I. C. were designed, the architects little calcu- lated on " Long Bill” ever entering the institution, for he seems to have considerable difficulty in passing through without at least bumping his head on the top casing and stubbing his toe on the sill at the same time. Bill brings forth the idea of the wrong in studying on Sunday. Oh, you Bill, you can’t make us believe that some member of the fair sex is not the real cause of your earnest ef- forts to finish your work before the seventh day. " Cheer up Bill, when you are the possesor of the many fine steeds you intend to raise, you will have the advantage of us all in the courting line.

Who is that tub-shaped image with the four eyes” and the would be rah-rah hair-cut, piking across the campus, with his shoulders bracing back with every melodious note of his corduroy trousers. Ah. no! He’s not a tinsmith or a bass horn player. He’s Hon. F. H. Baxter, alias " Pot. " This man knows, doubtlessly, more of how to entertain without money a young miss at a swell hotel dinner than anyone else at college with the possible exception of Young, ’13. " Pot” is a Bay Stater, coming from Mansfield. Mass. He passed his Freshman year somewhat in darkness, due probably to the fact that he helped a neighboring farmer milk cows and chase the pigs in his spare time. But the second year of his liberal education he spent at the Beta Phi house, where he has become the “bouncer.” 17 Robert John Benson, I’ A 2 Brockton, Mass. “Ben” Electrical Engineering Class Track (1) (2); Varsity Track Squad (1) (2); Class Basketball (1) (2); Class Baseball (2); Polygon (2) (3); Sophomore Hop Committee, Tennis Association. Engineering Society. It was on the twentieth day of September, 1889. that “Ben” was ushered into the “shoe city " of Brockton. Not much is known of him until he came to us on his twenty-first anniversary. Since then he has learned to distinguish the country from the city? “Ben” is an excellent student and during study hours he is never se«n loitering around the corridors. We hope to see him some day as the inventor of the five pole generator. Edward James BoulEstEr Providence, R. 1. “Eddie” “Doc” Applied Science Corporal Co. C (3); Glee Club (3); Reader (3); Vice President Debating Society (3); Member 2nd Debating Team (2). In his youth " Eddie” gave prominence of be- coming a giant, but unfortunately, the growth went to his feet. He was trapped in the wilds of Acad- emy Avenue of Providence and after being tamed for four years in English High, he was sent here for further confinement. Last summer he issued what is now universally known as “Boulester’s Business Directory of Usquepaugh,” the lines of which are written in blank verses. Well-known critics have pronounced it to be the best literary production the world has as yet witnessed. The school authorities in Jimmietown and Biscuit City have adopted it as a regular text-book. " Eddie’s” highest ambition is to become at first alumni president of his Alma Mater, at which time, he will deal a death blow to the short-cut. narrow-gauge, copy-lighting express two years’ courses. John Brechin, Jr., P 1 K Bristol, R. I. “Breck” Mechanical Engineering. Class Baseball (2); 1914 Literary Society (1). " Breck” came to us from Bristol, where he gradu- ated from high school in 1908. After working two years he decided that he would like to become an engineer and so took mechanical engineering. While here he has been apparently quiet but has had his part in “rough houseing” and having that innocent look has never been suspected. He is usually ready for a good time when it does not interfere too much with studies or writing a letter. He has spent most of his time on his studies and we will look forward to the time when he is a full-fledged engineer. “Still water runs deep.” 18 Harold W.

M. C. A. (3); President Athletic Association (3) ; President of Class (3). " Funny” comes from Matunuck, which is often compared with New York (200 inhabitants). Dur- ing the first two years of his collegian life he re- mained in the dormant stage corncerning the other sex. However, during his Junior Year, “My what a change. " Pcaccdale three times during the week and all day Sunday. " Gamp” says that the reason he spnds so much time there is be- cause he is collecting material (from practical ex- perience) for a book which he is writing, entitled. “The Joys of Canoeing.” The work will be pub- lished in July 1914.

The corn belt was not interesting enough for Seth, so he located in Woonsocket. He joined the class of 1912 here but was forced to leave in their Sophomore year on account of blood poisoning. However, he joined us last year and is taking a mongrel course of his own arrangement and will be with us strong at the finish.

He quieted down a bit during his sophomore year however. There was a decided change in the “boy” when he be- came a sedate junior. He has collaborated with Prexy in the economic management of the college by forfeiting his daily breakfasts. " Cy” is an inveter- ate user of the pipe, but has not lost control of his skillful hand in the construction of graphics. 19 Thomas Rowley Conner, Wakefield, R. I. " T” Civil Engineering “T” began his career at R. I. with the class of ' 14. His work has been exclusively original, and it is this fact alone, perhaps that has put him among the peers of the spy-glass squad. Although " T” does not take part in athletics to any great extent, he is ever ready to lend a hand, and whenever needed can be relied upon. Aside from being a good man with the books. " Tommy” is well known and will be remembered for his abilities (?) at the forge and machine shop. Henry Ellis Davis, P I K Edgewood, R. I.

We have all these things em- bodied in this wonderful human being, who has all the ear marks of a great man. so “Davy” says. “Davy” has always had what seems to be an in- herent desire for a good time, but one thing is certain. " Harry ' s " natural inclinations have never stopped him from carrying to a successful culmination all of his undertakings. One must watch very carefully to shut it off when once he gets started on aggie matters. James Russel Esty,B4 Slatersville, R. 1.

Although Jimmy’s manly blushes and winsome smiles have made him the attack of the combined co-ed body, he has gained world wide reputation by directing all feminine communications home- ward. Assuming that our class model does not make a success along clergical lines he will probably be found as chief chemist in some large distilling plant (Pabst or Schlitz) of the country. 20 Myron Whitmarsh Finch, PIK Providence, R. ' ' Mike " Agriculture Class President (1); Class Football (1) (2): Class Basketball (1) (2); Captain (2); Class Base- ball (1) (2); Class Track (1) (2); 1914 Literary Society (1); Glee Club (1) (2) (3); Corporal Co. C (2) (3); Aggie Club (1) (2) (3); Beacon Boar-i (2) (3); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Cheer Leader ( 2 ). “Mike” first became notorious by becoming president of the class in our Freshman year. His chief ambition is to sing, and if he were stopped for fifteen minutes he would pine away. " Mike” has striven for athletic honors in all branches of sports, from the brutal game of football to the delicate act of fussing. He reached the zenith of his athletic career in his Sophomore year, when he became cheer leader. Dissappointed in his love affairs, in the summer of 1912, he migrated to the wild and wooly west. but. fortunately for 1914. several " hopes” brought him back to us again. Helen Wheeler Ford, North Easton, Mass. Girl ' s Athletic Association (1) (2) (3); Treas- urer (3); Girl’s Assembly (1) (2) (3); Scholastic Honors (1) (2). " Good words go ever with the lady’s name.” It has been whispered that Helen is a quiet sedate young lady and we believe she reigns supreme in the library as the result of this reputation. Helen is one of those nervous, conscientious girls who is always fearing failure but to whom failure never comes. She has an inquiring and an acquiring turn of mind and continues to hold the good record she brought with her from Xorth Easton. She tried her luck as a village student but found the loss of Davis Hall too great so returned to “Angels’ Row” to take up her abode once more among her classmates. She has been coquettish on some occasions but claims to be a de- vote man-hater. John Charles Glynn, ©X New London, Conn. “Tac " " Alderman " Applied Science Class Football (1); Manager Class Track (1); Executive Committee Tennis Association (2): Corporal (2): Varsity Football (3); Sergeant (3); Treasurer Rifle Club (3). This distinguished member of our class de- cided to become a collegian in September 1910, when he entered Brown University. Finding the city life entirely too tame, he decided to come to Kingston, where he might devote more time to social functions and less time to studies. He first attempted the engineering course, but finding that too easy for his marked ability, he changed to the Applied Science course. “Tac” always has a good supply of wit with him and is always caus- ing a laugh. His greatest ability is as a scloist. Whatever profession which " Tac” enters, the best wishes of the class of 1914 are with him. 21 Myron Angell Hawkins, B t Providence, R. 1. “Myney” Agriculture Varsity Relay Team (1) (2); Track Team (1) (2) : Manager (3); Agricultural Club Treasurer (3) ; Stock Judging Team (3); Class Track Team (1) (2); Captain (2); Scholastic Honors (2). Myron is a very quiet, modest little chap, who thinks much, but says little about some things. Studies seem to bother him hut little. In love " Myney” is a batchelor so far. but his many references to the fair sex indicate that his ambition savors of developing into that of a con- firmed fusser in the near future. Orcharding and poultry-keeping are the speed- boy’s ambitions for life after he receives a cum- laude in the spring of 1914. CarlETON Walter Jones. Providence R. I. “C. W.” Civil Engineering” June 3 . 1890 . Add this to your list of important dates to be remembered. Why? you ask. Because it marks the advent of no less a personage than Carle- ton Walter Jones. B. S., C. E. “C. W.” came to Rhode Island from Technical, where he was a member of the track team. His at- tempt to " come back” as a college sprinter was un- successful. In his Sophomore year he gained fame and distinction in the cheering section at baseball games as the loyalest rooter of all. He is also a great favorite of the co-eds (at meal time). Jones is a model youth, being ever present in Chris- tian Endeavor and Y. M. C. A. circles. His hobby is to “hit the pike” at a mile-a-minute clip on a twin cylinder “Indian” motor cycle. But on the level, he is a passenger on that slow-but-sure “local” with the motto, " It’s the plodder who gets there.” Herman Harry Karmann Providence, R. 1. " Herman” Civil Engineering Herman conies from Providence, where he is a shrewd business man, especially well-known in newspaper circles. He maintains an excellent reputation as a fusser in Pawtuxet. He is one of those quiet, busy ones who never wastes a minute. When in Kinsgton. he works while we sleep, our guardian angel during the silent hours of the night. As an athlete he is an exponent of the " manly arts. " as his roommates will testify. It is generally rumored that engineering projects in the middle west will prove his attraction at the close of his college career. We wish him success. 22 Lorenzo Foster Kinney, Jr.,© X Kingston, R. 1. “Lorenz” Applied Science Scholastic Honors (1) (2); Class Track (1) (2); " Kingston Prize” Essays, 3rd (2); Sergeant Co. C. (3): Associate Editor Beacon (3). This " Prodigy” is the only true product of Kingston in our midst. Just why such a genius should find himself at home among 1914 remains beyond our conception. Some claim it is not only the companionship of talented contemporaries, but that the “campus queens” exert a mysterious influence. In classes Lorenzo has proven his motto, that mum’s the word, unless called upon and then no end (till Prof. Adams is convinced?). At other times he may be found in the swamp, industriously digging his fame as a future Rhodo- dendron King Wilfred Chipman Matthews aa Providence, R. I “Bill” Electrical Engineering Class Football (2); Corporal. Company A. (2); Sergeant Company A. (2); Sergeant Major (3); First Lieutenant (4); Rifle Team (3); Soph. Hop Committee, Orchestra (2) (3); Bill was born in Providence in 1891. The great- er part of his life was spent there, but in 1908 he decided to honor R. 1. S. C. by prepping here and from thenceforth he has been a loyal Rhode Islander. Although Bill never cared much for electricity, after long years of persuasion he was finally influenced to take a course in electrical engineering. His tastes run mostly to mathe- matics and fussing, which is proved by his pains- taking labors at solving the Worcester problem. Leroy R.

(3) " Newt” from his first day here at Rhode Island showed great consideration for his classmates by helping in athletics, and for himself by endeavor- ing to get and keep his Hartwell. Cupid is his physician. " Newt” is not a dunce by any means, nor unredeemably lazy. He is a perfect gentleman and if he has any faults they are hard to find. In fact, if " Newt” just gets three good “squares” in- to his " bread-basket” each day with a snatch of an after supper letter big enough to keep his heart well, he is perfectly harmless. 23 i Olive Nicholson Pawtucket, R. I. “Olive” Home Economics Scholastic Honors (1) (2); Class Secretary (2) (3); Vice President Y. W. C. U., Beacon Board; Program Committee, Literary Society; Girls’ Athletic Association. The envy of the duller minds, Olive has always set the pace for the most brilliant. In fact, one hundred per cent, in a math. exam, was a mere trifle with her. In literary work also, in con- nection with the Beacon her work is not unknown. Although chemistry was of “Big” importance to Olive, we believe that her work in the home economics course, which attracted her to the cause during her Sophomore year, w ' ill be of very prac- tical value to her in the near future. Sarah Alice Nicholson, Pawtucket, R. I. “Sarah” Home Economics “Smiles to all, to all she smiles extends. Oft she rejects, but never once offends.” Full of the spirit and bouyancy of youth Sarah entered R. I. after having completed a most success- ful course at Pawtucket High School. Her bright and gay disposition made her a valuable classmate. Walking was one her best-liked pastimes in the days when “Young Tip " was around but when he wandered off to Philadelphia Sarah became the pre- dominating spirit of Davis Hall. Formerly every Friday evening somebody would " tip-toe” to Sarah’s room. For a time, Sarah w f as quite lonesome. Now when Friday comes around, Sarah sings as blithly as a lark, and the 5:10 speeds her home, where in the evening the “Tip-N ' ic” players render a “Man-Ban” concert to the Nicholson family.

We must admire “Milt’s” persistency in athletics and if our R. I. S. C. had a hockey team he might have another chance to shine. He is an excellent student (when he studies). The rest of the time his actions are characteristic of all full-fledged farmers. After “Pricie” gets his B. S. and has settled down on his little farm in Barring- ton. we expect great things from him. “When ‘roughhouseing’ interferes with studies, give up the studies, " is “Pricie’s” motto. 24 Freida Reiner Brooklyn, N.

Her excellent preparatory course has enabled her to finish her college work in three and one-half years. Her main occupation is try- ing to keep Edith in “the straight and narrow path.

Yes, Sir! Came to show this little place a few new ideas, for in- stance: a remedy for the Davis Hall habit— very simple — spend your spare time up in the village: and a solution for another puzzling problem— to keep well up in studies while apparently devoting your entire time to athletic and social activities. But never mind, we all know that he thinks rough- houses afford the best real entertainment of them all. Louis Rossi, B t Westerly, R “General” Civil Engineering Secretary Day Students, Organiation (11 (2). Louis Rossi, better known as “General,” was blown by a gentle breeze from sunny Italy, via Westerly, one day in 1909. and landed safely upon the steps of Davis Hall, lie easily completed the prep, course and entered the class of ’l l. the following year, in which he has kept a fast and steady pace ever since. “General’s” favorite subjects are mathematics and mechanics, and in these subjects he has " shown” the boys. He has little use for text books; he uses his own head. “General " makes friends easily and is well liked by his classmates, who wish him suc- cess. 25 Kditii Marie S afford Lancaster, Mass. " Edith” Home Economics Literary Editor Beacon (3); " The Village Queen” (1) (2) (3). September of 1910 brought us Edith who pre- viously had spent a year at Wheaton Seminary. At first we thought she was pensive and demure, but as time rolled on we found her to be buxom, blithe, and debonair. Books do not complain of lack of rest in Edith’s company. One of her de- vouring glances gives her what others have to boil and labor for. On her daily journey to col- lege. lonesomcness never seems to trouble her. For Edith’s sake many a duty is neglected, many a meal is lost. Nature study seems to her of more importance than hours spent in gymnasium work. Although Edith ' s future to us is vague, we are confident that her cheerfulness will always add many true friends to her present endless num- ber. Joseph Francis Shea, r a S Valley Falls, R. I. “Joe” Electrical Engineering. Orchestra (1) (2); Y. M. C. A. Accompanist (1); Manager Class Track Team (2); Beacon Board (3); Associate Business Manager Grist (3); Engineering Society; Tennis Club; Rifle Club. " Joe” is sure some boy, but it is hard to state what he’s a shark at. Personally, we refuse to state what his ambition may be, although, we have noticed ten- dencies along certain lines. Whether or not, lie will continue along the same lines is none of our business; but. at any rate, we can give away some of his secrets. He’s somewhat of a camera enthusiast; goes fussing once in a while; and, thinks nobody knows anything about his escapades. Well, here ' s hopes you might, dear reader, let him off easy. But we are not going to because we’re going to have him explain why he can tickle the ivories, better than Bell (s).

He attended Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, high school before coming to Rhode Island and gathered knowledge enough to set him on the road to a brilliant career as an engineer, but the " aggie " bug has stung him and now he spends all his time in drawing pictures of his future farm. We intend to get a life sized picture of “Tubby” milking a cow before he gra- duates. 26 Aloy Sooxg Canton, China. “Joe " Chemical Engineering Kingston Prize (2); 2nd Team Debating (2); Class Debating Team (2); Debating Society (2) 13); Secretary (3). Aloy, who traveled 10.000 miles to attend R. I. S. C., is the direct descendent of Lee Whang Bull, the first Chinaman known to have introduced science into China. He has proven himself a worthy successor to this famous educator, as exemplified by his ability in English classes to inform us of the sentiments expressed by un- known professors out in Missouri somewhere. While at college so far he has been successful in bumming tobacco, smoking cigarettes, breaking up the Chem. Lab., and by classifying shells in Geology. He has turned his interests toward Chemistry and will soon have completed Men- deleeff ' s periodic table. Since this Chinese giant comes from a land where deafness prevails, we all have had to excuse him for his extreme noisiness. Harvey Robert Turner, Providence, R. I. Civil Engineering Class Football (1) (2); Class Track (1) (2). Harvey came to us from Technical High which perhaps accounts for his being a Math shark. He is a very busy man. but nevertheless has found time for athletics. When we wanted a left-end for our foot- ball team he was there; when we wanted a little en- durance for the two-mile, he was there. When it comes to burning the midnight oil, he is there. He is always heard singing some ole German lullaby, and is well-known for his wit. He’ll make some engineer. Adelaide Gilbert Watson Peacedale, R. I. Secretary of the Dramatic Club (2); Secretary of the Y. W. C. U. (3) (4); Vice-President of the Girls ' Athletic Assn. (3) (4). Adelaide, with her winning ways, descended upon us in the middle of our Freshman year. She soon won the reputation of being very conscientious and studious, but never too busy to take part in a good time. She delights in studying “Life” and “nature,” as manifested by frequent sessions in the library and long walks. Judging by appearances, it might be sug- gested that upon finishing her college course, she will have no scruples against becoming a Bride(n). Karl Clifton Webster, B t Providence, R.

Bright, Breezy, Bellicose, Bustling, Buster: That’s our “Fat.” He can’t laugh without shaking all over, and he can’t move without laughing all over. That’s the reason they call him the jolly fat man. Does he dance; do his thoughts ever drift toward the fair sex; just mention Pawtuxet and see the big boy laugh. Earl is right on the job, for on the last New York trip of the Glee Club he “slipped one over” on the crowd when he took the “belle of the ball” safely home. Ask him what time he returned and see him smile again. Richard Ward Weston B East Bridgewater, Mass. “Dick” Agriculture Class Football (2); Class Basketball (2); Class Baseball (2); Varsity Track Squad (2); Soph. Hop Comm. (2). In September of 1911 “Dick " bid bood-bye to the “other resident” of East Bridgewater and took his departure for Rhode Island to join the Class of 1914. We have had to “hand it to him " in cer- tain branches of athletics (including numerous long walks on Friday evenings), and in the ma- jority of successful " rough-houses” in the north- west corner of the campus. " Dick” is a registered “aggie,” but often bewails a miscalling, for he thinks, as do we all, that his proper course should have been one at the Yale Divinity School.

In the autumn of 1910, after five years of prac- tical experience along electrical lines, Central Falls ousted “Whit " and gave orders that he re- main away four years. After considerable pon- dering. he decided to spend them at R. I. S. C., and further enlighten his copious mental regions. His two strong points are his studies and non- sense, and he is equally efficient in both. He lias vowed that his life’s research work will be to find the yet undiscovered hair restorer. 28 Edwin Olney Young, East Greenwich, R. I. " Ed” " Stevie " Electrical Engineering Class Baseball ( 1 ) ( 2 ); Band ( 2 ) ( 3 ). Hailing from the West Indies. “Stevie” first occu- pied the limelight in this country, by attracting the attention of major league scouts while playing third base for X. K. H. S. It is said that from his child- hood “Stevie” gave great promise as an electrical en- gineer, having at the age of three, mastered the prin- ciples of direct and alternating currents. Spurred on by the desire to become one of our foremost engineers and orators, “Ed” joined our class in its freshman year, and has since been one of its best stu- dents. His ability as a manager of men and his ex- perience with the social set at Newport, recently won for him the position of Manager of the Kingston Xon-pariels. To him we wish the best of success.

Soon after we arrived, an unofficial reception committee entertained several of our more prominent members, who felt highly honored. We were also entertained by the co-eds of our class in Davis Hall in spite of the efforts of 1914. Then came the class football game. Our team, which boasted not a single Varsity man, was pitted against a heavier team whose backfield was made up of three Varsity men. Suffice it to say that we retired from the field defeated by a score of 22 to 5. In basketball we did our best to “come back” and it required five minutes of overtime play to defeat us 11 to 10. Not daunted, we organized a strong baseball team and went out to conquer. We succeeded in several outside games, but our manager was unable to find a date acceptable to the Sopho- mores. The next fall saw our class much reduced. We were nevertheless able to defeat the Freshmen in a dual track meet. In football, we were less fortunate. Our team, weakened by the loss of several of the previous year ' s men, fought hard, but was unable to overcome the Freshmen ' s lead of 6 to 0. The next day was Sunday, but it had none of the traditional quietness of the Sabbath, for at noon several Sophs seized the Freshman banner that floated tauntingly from the flag pole. In resentment, the Freshmen seized two Sophs, carried one to an isolated house in the woods and branded the other with iodine. It later appeared that the banner was under Prexy ' s guardianship, but the evil had been done and the banner has not yet been located and returned. In the meantime our class had held on the 22nd of November their Sophomore Hop. This affair was well carried out and proved to those in attendance that the class of 1915 is capable of doing things. 33 34 K ho(l stand State College 1915 Class Hull Officer and Mcmbera Honorary Member, Prof. Marshall H.

History of the (’loss of 1 if 1 (i On Wednesday, September 20, 1012, Rhode Island State College threw open her portals to the largest Freshman Class that ever assembled at Kingston. True, some were a little tardy in entering, hut the majority showed their worth by their punctuality. The Class numbers sixty-eight, forty-two in the engineering, one in the applied science, eighteen in the agriculture, and seven in the home economics course. Early in the year, the class held a meeting and organized. The officers were elected for the year and they have already shown their capability in their re- spective positions. In the Sophomore-Freshman Track Meet, which was held on November 4th, the Freshmen lost to the Sophs by a score of 66-48. Some of our men made very creditable showings and gave promise of good future track material. In the Class Football game, however, the situation was reversed, the Freshmen winning for the first time in the history of the college, the score being 6-0. The 1916 team played a wonderful game for a team which was hardly organized, the players barely knowing each other. The class of 1916 has given material help to athletics during its short life. Three of our members received their R. I. in football and two others in basket- ball. Thus far, 1916 has given a good account of itself in the class-room and on the athletic field. It is not only the largest Freshman Class ever known at Rhode Island, but it has given promise of being one of the best. 37 . 58 Kliode Island State College 10K) Class Roll Officers and Members Honorary Member, Prof. Herman Churchill.

Football Responding to a call from the manager an enthusiastic squad appeared on the campus September 9th and donned their football suits to practice for a stiff schedule. But five of the last year’s team returned this year. They were Captain Sullivan, Sherwin, Xewton, Price and Briden. However, the last year ' s second team and the freshman class furnished the remain- ing positions with competent material. The squad was under the direction of R. W. Bing- ham, Jr., Brown, 1911. By Sept. 21 the team was in good condition to journey to Amherst to meet their old rivals. M. A. C., defeating them by the score of 7-0. Massachusetts won the toss and received the kickoff, but was forced to punt after three unsuccessful attempts to make first down. Sullivan ran the ball back twenty yards. On the first down Sherwin made five yards through left tackle. Sullivan carried the ball around right end for a long gain. Sherwin and Newton both made gains through the line, bringing the ball to Massachusetts’ twenty yard line. Sullivan ran around left end for a touch down and kicked the goal. Rhode Island had a much lighter team than her opponents, but all through the first two periods she played a much faster game and made some long gains. Near the end of the seco nd period Sullivan drop kicked from Massachusetts’ forty yard line, the ball striking the upright two feet above the cross bar. During the third period the ball was in the center of the field all the time with the exception of the last few minutes, when Rhode Island rushed the ball to Massa- IS R li o 1 e Island Stale C o 1 1 c g e chusetts’ twenty-five yard line. Massachusetts came back strong in the fourth period, and by a series of line plunges through the guards twice rushed the ball to Rhode Island’s one yard line, but here Rhode Island showed her do-or-dic spirit, and here held her opponents for four downs twice. The time was called. The whole Rhode Island team showed up well for the first game. A week later Rhode Island easily dis|)osed of the strong Pawtuxet A. C. team. R. I’s. goal was never in danger and the team filed up a score of 20 to 0. The team showed a marked improvement over the previous week. On October 5th Rhode Island met with her first defeat when she met Brown, on Andrews Field. The final score after a plucky fight on a dusty gridiron, was 14-0. R. 1. won the toss. Kratz kicked off to Newton, who carried the hall back twenty yards. By shift plays Rhode Island succeeded in tearing the Brown line and rushed the hall to her 30 yard line. Here Brown held and Sullivan tried for a goal from the field. The oval missed by a narrow margin. All through the first period the Brown team was outclassed and the playing was in her territory. The period ended with the ball on Brown’s thirty yard line. The second period was played with two of the Rhode Island regulars out of the game. For a time the ball seesawed in the center of the field. Brown fumbled on her third down. Price recovered the ball and carried it to her five yard line. This time Rhode Island fumbled and Brown carried the ball the length of the field for a touchdown. Ashbaugh kicked the goal. Rhode Island received the kickoff on her ten yard line and carried it back ten yards. After two downs the whistle blew for half time. Score — Brown 7, R. I. 0. The second half opened with Brown kicking to Sullivan on his fifteen yard line. He carried the ball to the forty yard line, where it was out of bounds. Rhode Island was forced to punt. Crowther ran the ball back neatly to the place where it was kicked. Both teams played a punting game. Near the end of this period Brown rushed the ball down the field, where Henry placed t between the goal posts for the second touchdown. Ashbaugh kicked the goal. ' Phe period ended with the men lined up for a kickoff. The fourth period opened with Sullivan kicking to McLean, who took the ball back ten yards, but lost it when tackled. Here Rhode Island put up a game fight to reach her opponents’ goal line. She was forced to punt, however, and Crowther received the ball, but was downed in his tracks. Brown advanced the ball to Rhode Island ' s forty yard line. Ashbaugh tried a goal from placement, which fell short. Sullivan ran the ball back thirty yards and after two downs punted. Brown tried two line plunges and the whistle ended the game. The 19 14 Grist 49 On October 12th Rhode Island suffered its second defeat of the season at the hands of the strong aggregation representing the Pi ne Tree state. The game was played in a light rain, upon a soggy and slippery field. The latter proved to be a great hindrance to our team, for it did away with much of the open style of playing, and eliminated our end running to a great extent. Rhode Island started off well and had things her own way in the first period of the game. Long runs by Sherwin and Sullivan brought Rhode Island within striking distance. Here, however, Maine held, and soon came into possession of the ball. By repeated line plunging the Maine team carried the ball down the field and scored. During the remainder of the game the ball see-sawed up and down the field. Maine scoring in the third period and again in the last minute of play. Tired out from the tedious trip to Maine and in a crippled condition, the boys journied to the Metropolis and surprised Fordham University by taking a (i-0 v ictory. Both teams seemed unable to gain ground, with the odds in Rhode Island’s favor, Sullivan tallying two out of three tries for a drop kick. A week later Rhode Island came back strong and swamped Worcester Folytecbnical Institute representation on college field, 27-0. The home team won the toss and received the ball on its ten yard line. With good interference the ball was carried to the middle of the field. A couple of end runs and some plunging, mostly through left tackle, gave Rhode Island her first touchdown, Sherwin carrying the ball over. The goal was missed. Worcester received the kick. Kelly carried the ball back five yards. Worcester could not gain, so punted on the fourth down. Sherwin carried the ball to the thirty yard line. The whistle ended the first period. The second period opened with Rhode Island plugging Worcester’s line. With the ball on the opponents’ ten yard line Sullivan carried the ball around right end for the second touchdown. Sullivan kicked the goal. Worcester received the kick again and the play was carried on again in her territory until the end of the second period. Score — R. I. 13. W. P. I. 0. Worcester received the ball in the third period and was forced to punt. Rhode Island carried the ball to the opponents’ twenty-five yard line but was held for downs. After three downs W. P. I. punted to Sullivan, who brought the ball back to the forty yard line. From here R. I. carried the ball down the field for a third touchdown, Newton carrying the ball through right tackle. Sullivan kicked the goal. Rhode Island again kicked off and downed the Worcester man on his twenty yard line. Again Worcester punted to the middle of the field. Sherwin carried the ball to her forty yard line. The whistle ended the third period. The fourth period saw Rhode Island plugging hard and it was 50 K li o (1 e s 1 11 11 (1 Slate College only a short time before Sherwin carried the ball over for the fourth touchdown of the game. Sullivan kicked the goal. Worcester received the kick, only to be forced to punt to Rhode Island’s forty yard line. Sullivan carried the ball around left end for forty-five yards. Here Worcester held Rhode Island for downs. After three downs Worcester punted and Rhode Island was steadily working for another touchdown when the game ended. In a one-sided, though hard fought game from beginning to end, Rhode Island again defeated their keen rivals, New Hampshire State College, by the score of 25 to 0, on Saturday, November 2. New Hampshire fought hard to stave off defeat, but the powerful line plunges of Sherwin, the brilliant and spectacular end runs of Newton and long gains by Price were too much for them. With the ball on New Hampshire’s 40 yard line, Sherwin hit the line hard and plowed through a broken field for a touchdown. Newton brought the crowd to its feet when, with 25 yards to make on the last down, he circled right end for a 35 yard run. Captain Sullivvan made two of the prettiest drop kicks ever seen at the athletic field, one being from the 40 yard line and the other from the 45 yard line. Brackett and Hobbs played a fine game for New Hampshire, the former making a run of forty yards, while the latter tore off a pretty 35 yard run. The first score came after the first few minutes of play. New Hampshire kicked to Rhode Island’s 25 yard line. Price carried the ball through left tackle for ten yards. Sherwin plugged for five more. Newton then circled right end for 15 yards. Rhode Island carried the ball to New Hampshire’s 35 yard line, where they were held for downs. Sullivan’s drop kick failed. New Hampshire punted to Newton on the New Hampshire 23 yard line. Newton ran the ball back five yards. Sullivan took the ball around end for 35 yards. Newton advanced it 12 more. Sherwin made four yards through right tackle. Price carried the ball to New Hampshire’s two yard line, where Newton carried it over for a touchdown. Sullivan missed the goal. Sullivan kicked off to New Hampshire’s one yard line. Hobbs ran the ball back thirty yards. Bissel could make no gain through guard. Brackett made thirty yards around end, but fumbled the ball and it was recovered by Davis for Rhode Island. Newton on the first play made 25 yards around the right end. New Hampshire then heir! Rhode Island to no gain. Sullivan then made a pretty drop kick from New Hampshire’s 40 yard line. Score at the end of the first half — Rhode Island 9, New Hamp- shire 0. In the third period Sullivan made his second drop kick, which was made from New Hampshire’s 40 yard line. In this period Sherwin carried the ball T li e li) 1 4 Grist through guard 40 yards for a touchdown. Sullivan missed the goal. In the last period Sullivan tried a drop kick from New Hampshire’s 45 yard line, but it missed by just a few feet. To many of the spectators it was a question as to whether or not it went over. New Hampshire put the ball in play on her own twenty yard line. Jones was thrown back for a loss of 19 yards. New Hampshire punted to her own 30 yard line. Newton carried the ball around end for 15 yards. Sullivan, on a trick play, made five yards through guard. Price carried it two yards more. Newton carried it to New Hampshire’s half yard line. Price then carried the ball over the line for a touchdown. Owing to cancellation on the part of Poston College, a game was played with Port Greble. Coach Bingham used the second team during the greater part of the game. The game was loosely played, but gave the second team a good chance to try out against strong opponents. The final score was 14-6. The team closed its season on Ohio Field, X. Y., November 16, losing to the powerful N. Y. U. team, 14-7. Rhode Island’s touchdown came after six minutes of play. Sullivan punted into New York’s territory and Henninger recovered the ball. Sullivan carried it around left end for a touchdown and then kicked the goal. The first period opened with New York kicking to Henninger, who carried it to Rhode Island’s forty yard line. By line plunging and two end runs the ball was carried to New York’s 30 yard line. Here Newton carried the ball around right end for a touchdown, but it was not allowed. Rhode Island was penalized 15 yards for holding. Sullivan circled left end for a touchdown and kicked the goal. New York kicked to Sullivan, who carried the ball to the middle of the field. New York held for downs and then steadily pushed the ball down the field for a touchdown. Dutcher kicked the goal. Sullivan kicked to New York and the whistle ended the period with the ball on New York’s 30 yard line. During most of the second period the ball seesawed back and forth in the middle of the field, but towards the end New York kicked and recovered the ball on a fumble. Two line plunges and a forward pass gave her the second touchdown. Dutcher kicked the goal. New York kicked to Rhode Island as the whistle ended the period. During all of the second half the ball was kept going back and forth in the center of the field with the favor on New York’s side. Rhode Island was handicapped in this half by the loss of Mailloux and Davis, both of whom wrenched their ankles. When the whistle ended the game the ball was on Rhode Island ' s 40 yard line. The game was the hardest Rhode Island had this year, being outweighed by at least 20 pounds to the man. Every man showed a remark- able gameness and fought until the end. Kliode Island Stale College The team leaves a remarkable record this past season considering that it was necessary to develop almost an entirely new line. In every game the fellows were outweighed man for man. In spite of this they could be counted upon from the beginning to the end of the games, and barring the numerous injuries, the season may lie considered one of the most successful in the history of Rhode Island State College Athletics.

Maynard Basketball The 1 J 1 4 Grist •)o Basketball Considerable difficulty was experienced this year by the basketball manager in arrang ing his schedule, as most of the colleges in the east are dropping this line of athletics. However, we had a successful season, winning four out of seven games played. The team lived up to its old standard and won all of the home games Three positions were open at the beginning of the season and these were ably filled by Len- nox, Nichols and Freeman. Capt. Tully and Aspinwall played in their old places at forward and center, respectively. After several weeks of hard practice, the team met Renselaer Polytechnic Institute at Kingston and easily won by a score of 29-11. The game opened with both teams playing a guarding game and Renselaer having a little the better of it, and scoring five points to two made by Rhode Island. This was only for a short time, however. About the middle of the half Nichols carried the ball down the floor and shot a pretty basket, which was soon followed by another, Aspinwall doing the work. This seemed to spur Rhode Island on and at the Capt. Tully end of the half she led by a score of 9-6. Rhode Island had things all her own way in the second half, every man on the team playing a hard and fast game with no letup. Rensselear on the other hand couldn ' t seem to stand the pace and was completely outclassed. Lennox and Nichols, along with Captain Tully played all over the floor, while Aspinwall got the jump on his man every time at center and this figured largely in the success of the team. Freeman had his man completely boxed every minute of the game and deserves much credit. When the final whistle blew the score stood 29 to 11. Rhode Island won its second game of the season Saturday, January 4, when Pratt Institute was defeated on the latter’s court in Brooklyn, New York, by the score of thirty-five to thirty-one. As the score would naturally indicate, the game was a close one, and it was not until the last two minutes of play that Rhode Island won the game. K h o 1 e stand State College 5(5 Pratt started the scoring when Whitehead shot a foul for the home team. Another foul on Rhode Island gave Pratt another point, but Lennox shot a basket and tied the score. Rhode Island had the advantage of the Brooklyn team in the first half, the score at the end of the half being 15-13 in favor of the visiting team. Although Rhode Island held the score at all times of the first half, the reverse was quite true in the second half up to the last five minutes of play. The Brooklynites came back in the second half with a determination to win, and before it could hardly be realized, the score stood 26-21 in their favor. Seeing the tables turned against her, Rhode Island took a sudden spurt and managed to tie the score. With but two minutes to play, the score stooii 31-31. Here is where the superiority of the team work of Rhode Island was the most evident. By some striking passing, Aspinwall netted two consecu- tive baskets, making the score 35-31 in favor of Rhode Island when the whistle blew. On Janary 11, the team met its first defeat of the season, losing to Wes- leyan, the New England champions for the last two years, by a score of 56-23. Wesleyan was represented by practically the same team that has defended honor during the past three years. The showing made by Rhode Island deserves more credit than the score would probably lead one to think. Although outplayed from the very start, every man on the Rhode Island team played for all that was in him. and was not willing to consider himself defeated until the game was ended. Rhode Island scored twelve points during the first half and eleven during the second, while Wsleyan netted twenty-eight point during each half. Probably the fastest game of basketball that has ever been played in Kingston was played on January the fifteenth, when our boys defeated New Hampshire 24-23. The game was the most exciting that has been seen on the home floor for some time and it was neither team’s game until the end. With only forty seconds to play and New Hampshire leading by a single point, Lennox drib- bled the ball the length of the floor and shot a pretty basket, winning the game for the team. Both teams showed fine playing at times, although that of New Hampshire was more consistent. Rhode Island has never lost a game on the home floor, but with the score 14 to 9 against them at the end of the first half it looked as if the good record was to be broken. Rhode Island started things in the second half by scoring two baskets soon after the whistle and forging ahead a few minutes after- wards. New Hampshire, not to be outdone by the fast work of the home T h e 1)14 Grist . 4 team, serengthened and time and again the crowd was brought to their feet in the excitement. The Saturday following, Rhode Island journeyed to Williamstown, Mass., and met defeat at the hands of the Williams boys. Because of the smallness of the court our aggregation were unable to get started during the first part of the game, but came back strong in the last half. The accuracy with which the home team were able to shoot baskets is the main reason for the final score standing as it did, 51-14. In the roughest basketball bame held at Kingston this season, Rhode Island defeated the Yale Rovers, January 25, by a score of 29 to 23. Although there was strenuous work in both halves, the players put up a clean contest and excitement ran high from the start to the finish. The game was a see-saw in the opening period, but when the whistle blew for intermission. Rhode Island was ahead, 13 to 12. The Rovers spurted in the second half, and by some clever basket shooting, tied the score at 19 points each about eight minutes before the final whistle. The Rhode Islanders opened the throttle, and forcing the pace, broke the tie and piled up 10 points, while the visitors were collecting four. Freeman hurst his ankle in this half and was replaced by Young. On New Hampshire’s floor, Rhode Island fell to defeat on Saturday, Feb- ruary 15, after forty minutes of hard-fought basketball with the Northern state team joyously rushing off the floor with the final honors. New Hampshire started scoring on an easy basket by Thompson, which was follow ' ed by Rhode Island ' s first point on a foul caged by Lennox, who quickly followed his free trial by a goal from the floor. This was the only time during the game when R. I. had the lead. The first half ended with the score 20-9 with New Hampshire on top. The second half opened with New Hampshire turning in a succession of baskets, but at this point Rhode Island tightened and cut the lead to ten points. The score wavered during the remainder of the game with New Hampshire always in the lead, and when the gong sounded in the end, the score stood 40-28. THE SUMMARY. R. I. OHP Dec. 14. Renssalaer P.

Webb Foley Cobb (Coach) Meyer Redding Hudson Coleman Newton Doll Sullivan Briden (Capt.) Price Lennox Basketball over, the attention in athletics was immediately turned to baseball . Capt. Bidden and Coach Cobb issued a call for new material, which was enthusiastically responded to. The veterans on the squad were Capt. Briden, Doll, Newton, Price, Sullivan anil Redding, all out for their old positions. For four weeks daily practice was held in Uppitt Hall. The first cut in the squad was made the first week in April and the remaining men were given a final stiff practice for the open- ing game with Bowdoin on April 9, 1912. Owing to unfavorable weather conditions, the squad was not in the best of condition to meet such able opponents. The student body as during the rest of the season was out in full force to cheer them on. The game was well played and interesting throughout. Meyer started pitching for Rhode Island and up to the eighth certainly pitched fine ball, lie pulled out of several bad holes, once with the bases full. He was relieved by Coleman in the eighth, after Bowdoin had scored three runs. Rhode Island scored on a hit, a stolen base and an error. The batting of our varsity was lamentably weak, only four hits being made. Foley’s catching and throwing were fine and Sullivan’s throw to the plate, which caught the runner, was a “corker.” April 13 saw Tufts succeed in downing R. I., but not until fourteen innings had been played. At the beginning of the ninth our varsity had a lead of 3 to 1, but Tufts tied the score in the ninth and went out in the fourteenth. Coleman pitched a fine game, holding the opposing batsmen hitless for Rhode Island Stale College » eight innings and to six hits in the whole game. He clearly outpitched Adams, the ex-Brown star, who was touched up for nine hits. Rhode Island started the scoring in the first inning. Sullivan drew a pass, Price sacrificed him to second, and he scored on a fine two-bagger by Doll. Doll stole third and scored on an .rror by Quakers, the Tufts’ third baseman. Tufts got one back in the second on a wild throw by Foley over first base. There was no more scoring until the seventh when Coleman walked. He immediately stole second and scored on a fine hit by Sullivan Tufts tied the score upon an error and a couple of hits. In the eleventh and thirteenth Rhode Island threatened to score — the neces- sary hit was lacking. Coleman, on the other hand, kept Tufts well in check until the fourteenth. In the last of the fourteen the first Tufts batsman “slammed” out a fine three-bagger. Two men were retired before Lowry, the Tufts center fielder, came along with the necessary hit, which won the game. On April 20 the strong New Hampshire representation arrived at Kingston to carry away with them a 4-0 scalp-lock. A very strong wind blew across the field bothering both teams. In spite of this, however, the game was very exciting throughout. The boys from the White Mountain State started things by pushing a run over the plate in the first inning. From this time to the seventh inning the game was closely contested, both teams having men on bases. The timely stick work was lacking, however, and no score was made. In the first half of the seventh New Hampshire came back strong and scored three runs on as many hits and an error, obtaining a lead of four runs. Rhode Island threatened to score in both the eighth and ninth innings, but were shut off by good fielding on the part of New Hampshire. After winning from Harvard on Tuesday and holding Brown to a 3-2 score on W ednesday, the Bates College nine won from the Rhode Island nine Thursday afternoon after 11 innings. The game was one of the fastest ever seen on the home team ' s grounds and was favored with the best of weather conditions. The Bates team displayed great team work Time and again they stopped what looked like sure hits and were freely applauded by the Rhode Island rooters. At the bat they were strong, getting nine hits off Coleman. Rhode Island team played a fast fielding game but were weak with the stick, Redding being the only man to connect for a hit. Rhode Island scored a run in the third inning. W ith one down, Red- ding lined out a pretty single to right field and stole second on the first ball The 1J) Grist til pitched. Coleman, the next man, drew a pass, Sullivan hit a hard one to short, sending Redding to third. Coleman was just out at second and an attempt lo get Sullivan at first resulted in a wild throw. Redding scoring and Sullivan going to second. The next batter died out, shutting off further scoring. In the fifth Cody of Bates was hit by a pitched ball, went to second on Danahy’s single and scored when Keaney and Lindquist both sacrified. In the 11th Griffen hit safe. Cody followed with another hit. Then with two down Keaney hit a Texas Leaguer over third base, scoring Griffen and giving Bates the game. Following a week of stiff practice, the team lined up against the Norwich University aggregation on the college field the next Saturday. It was anybody ' s game until the last man was put out. Rhode Island nearly turned a defeat into victory in the ninth, but Murray’s catch on Foley’s Texas Leaguer saved the game for Norwich. Sullivan and Doll played ex- ceedingly well, while Lennox, Burwell, Murray and Shepard played good ball. Rhode Island started off by scoring a run in the first inning Doll, the first man up, singled to middle. Sullivan followed with a pretty bunt along the first base line. Foley struck out and Newton sent up an infield fly, putting Doll out. With Sullivan on second and Newton on first, Lennox singled to right, scoring Sullivan. Briden hit to second but was put out. In the second Rhode Island scored twice. Hudson walked and was sacri- ficed to second by Coleman. Doli hit. scoring Hudson. Sullivan singled to left, scoring Doll. Foley fanned. Score — Rhode Island 3, Norwich 0. Norwich came back strong in the third Munsel was passed, Parkman bunted in front of the plate, and an error by Lennox on Foley’s throw to second let Munsel reach third. Burwell singled, scoring Munsel, and Murray’s two-bagger sent Burwell over the plate for another score. Belyia struck out. Rhode Island 3, Norwich 2. Lennox made a pretty one-hand stop in the fifth, getting his man at first. Rhode Island scored again in thi c inning. Doll reached first on an error by Thompson. Sullivan and Foley both bunted safe, Newton flied out and Lennox sacrificed, scoring Doll. In the sixth Norwich took advantage of Rhode Island’s slow playing and scored three runs. Burwell. the irst man at bat, walked Murray singled. Belyia hit a Texas Leaguer between middle and right, which should have been an easy putout. This scored Burwell and Murray. Hudson’s throw to the plate took a bad bound, letting Belyia reach third. O’Dowd sacrificed i2 Rhode Island State College along the third base line, scoring Belyia. Keegan flied out. Score — Rhode Island 4, Norwich 5. Sullivan’s throw from left to second, catching Burwell while trying to sretch a single into a two-bagger, was perfect. Rhode Island tied the score in the eighth when Lennox was passed, stole second, and scored on Briden’s protty single to middle. In the first half of the ninth Shepard hit safe for Norwich, went to second on Burwell’s sacrifice, and to third on an error. The next batter hit to Doll, who threw to the plate to shut off the run. but the runner slid into Foley, causing him to drop the ball. In sliding, the runner’s head struck Foley’s knee and he had to be carried off the field. Rhode Island tried hard for a score in her half of the ninth. Webb walked. Coleman struck out. Webb was put out in trying to steal second. Doll reached first on an error by Shepard and went to third on a wild throw over first. Keegan let Sullivan walk. He at once stole second. Foley hit a Texas Leaguer over third but a good catch by Murray ended the game. On Friday, May 10th, Rhode Island met Brown on Andrews Field in Providence. After a hard fight on both sides, Brown came out of it with a score of 3-0 in their favor. Both Cram and Meyer were pitching in mid-season form, the former allow- ing three hits and the latter holding Brown’s heavv batting team to four hits, two of which were of the scratch order. Brown’s first score came in the third inning, when P. Nash hit safely to right field. Cram sacrificed and Foley threw wild in attempting to catch the man at first, allowing Brown’s center fielder to come all the way home. In the fifth, K. Nash drew a base on balls, made second on a sacrifice hit, and scored on Foley’s second error. In the next two innings both teams went out in order and each side gave a fine exhibition of fielding. In the eighth Brown added her last run. After Cram and Crowther had been retired. K. Nash singled to right. Reilly, who ran for Nash, stole second and tallied on Loud’s smashing three-bagger to right center. Henry, the next mail up. hit to Lennox, but was thrown out. Returning to Kingston, R. I. easily defeated Boston University 20-0 on the following day. The home team piled up a total of 23 hits, but the opponents were held at the mercy of Coleman being able to get but one stray hit. A week later Rhode Island easily defeated Worcester Polytechnic Institute on the home field, by the score of 19 to 4. The Rhode Island batters hit the ball to all corners of the field for a total of 21 hits. Doll and Foley le d in the T li e 0 14 Grist (i.4 hitting, each getting four hits, the former getting a three-bagger, two two- baggers and a single. In the first two innings both teams shaped up well and it looked as if i f would be a hard contest, but in the third Rhode Island landed on the Worcester pitcher and secured five runs. From then until the end of the game the winners had everything their own way. This was a very fitting close for the season and showed that the boys, though defeated early in the schedule, were able to come back and win a few games for R. I. R I. Opp. April 11.

Although the dual meet with New Hampshire May 25th was lost, material developed will in all probability produce for R. I. a much stronger team this year. A very keenly-contested inter-class meet was held in June which resulted in a sweeping victory for 191 }. This fall a Sophomore- Freshman meet was held to interest the new men especially. The result was in favor of the Sophs. A fast relay four has been developed which means more victories. The New Hampshire Meet To our misfortune last spring several of our men were unable to enter the New Hamp- shire meet on account of injuries. Capt Barlow again proved his ability as a runner by taking the 440 and the 880. In the shot put R. I. took all three places, while in the hurdles Irons showed himself superior.

Relay Team On February 8, 1913, the relay team defeated New Hampshire at the Mechanics Pavilion in Boston in a close and interesting race. This makes the third successive win for Rhode Island. On February 22nd they met the Massachusetts Aggies at the State Armory in Providence and lost by about two yards in a fast and exciting race. The boys from the Bay State had had more experience in taking the banks and this was the chief reason for their victory over Rhode Island. The boys deserve a good deal of credit for the work done this year. The new board ♦rack will be of assistance to them in the future. R h o d v s 1 a 11 d State College (58 Annual Spring Track Meet The annual spring track meet was held on the college field on Class Day. It was a balance of excitement throughout the most of the contest, but 1914 forged ahead rapidly toward the close and finished with 43 points to her credit to 28 by 1915, 23 by 1913, and 23 by the specials.

Debate The second annual debate with M. A. C. took place at Kingston last spring. The subject was, “Resolved : Rhode Island, represented by Messrs. Briden, ' 13, Bigelow, T2 and Baxter, T4, upheld the affirmative, while M. A. C. upheld the negative side of the question. Both teams proved very efficient debators, presenting very strong arguments. However, the arguments of the Varsity were the more convincing and they show ' ed more strength in rebuttal. The previous annual debate was w ' on by M. A. C. by a small margin, and with much satisfaction we look upon the increasing efficiency of our debating team, which may be largely due to the training received from the debate with the best class team. The judges were Hon. Sumner Mowry of Peacedale, W. A. Bradley, Super- intendent of Public Schools of South Kingstown, and Mr. Prentice C. Hoyt of Worcester, Mass. Officers F. H. Bridex President E. J. Boulester Vice-President Ai.oy Soong Secretary H. E. Davis Treasurer The Debating Society is composed of students from each class. Each class has a team supporting the affrmative and one the negative of the question which the Varsity will debate with the M. A. C. The idea being that the best class team, if opposing side to Varsity, shall debate against Varsity before its debate with M. A. C. Messrs Soong, Boulester and Davis made up the Varsity second team.

Estv Vice-President Myron W. Finch Secretary Harold W. Browning Treasurer Living bodies have been classified as immovable, movable and those that move. Once the Y. M. C. A., being held down by misconception, was im- movable. Misconception was replaced by possibility in which the Y. M. C. A. became movable and now with the advent of a definite object the Association is teeming over with energy and determination to perform that which they can realize to be of benefit and of worth to their fellow-beings and to the existing local civic conditions. The Y. M. C. A. has included now in its curriculum, beside the strictly religious phase, the social and civic sides, and are no w well under way toward accomplishing ends. It was through the aid of Mr. Arthur F. Newell, Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. at Brown University, that the possibility of deputation work among tile surrounding foreign people was made clear. Through an arrangement with Miss Thurston, of Peacedale, a demonstration of the Robert System of teach- ing English to foreign students was held under Mr. Higgins, ot Brown University, at the Neighborhood Guild, Peacedale, R. I. In the presence of many Y. M. C. A. men and others interested in Social Service work Mr. Higgins taught a class of 18 Italian students who understood little or nothing of English fifteen to twenty sentences of English in one hour. This work has since its beginning at Christmas, been kept up two nights a week, with classes having an average enrollment of ten. Important speakers have addressed the Y. M. C. A. in its last year, of whom are: Mr. F.. C. Mercer of New York, of the International Y. M. C. A. Com- mittee; Mr. E. C. Andrews. Secretary of Army and Navy Y. M. C. A., New- port, R. I.: Arthur F.

The Electrical Engineering Society was organized in February, 191. 1, and promises to become a leading factor in the education of the students engaged in the study of Electrical Engineering. It is the aim of the society to present papers and discussions on the commer- cial applications of electricity and by this means keep the students in touch with the practical phase of electrical engineering. It is planned to have engineers of practical experience lecture to the members during the next year. Owing to the late time of the year at which the society got into good working order, no such arrangments were made for the first year. The society is now a student branch of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and are subject to the rules and regulations of that body. Memberit 1913 Benjamin Cohen Arthur L.

Harrall, ' 03 The New York Club The Rhode Island Club of New York, the first branch of the general Alumni Association to organize, did so as a direct result of the meeting of several former students at a football game with New York University in 1911. Shortly after this date a few of the fellows met one evening and planned a monthly gathering of as many former Rhode Island students as could be reached in New York and its suburbs. How well the plan succeeded was shown on April 27, 1912, when 22 rovers were laid for the first annual banquet, held at the Park Avenue Hotel. The meetings throughout were entirely informal, as was indeed the whole organization. The only officer was Mr. C. L. Coggins, ’07, who acted as chair- man when it became necessary to conduct a business meeting and as secretary in sending out notices. With the coming of the present year, however, the club found itself grown to some twenty active members and in need of stronger organization, so a simple constitution was adopted and under it Mr. R. O. Brooks, ’99, was elected president with Mr. R. H. Carpenter, TO, as secretary and treasurer. Outside of the social features of the club, its aim is to keep in touch with the work and needs of the college, to interest prospect students, to make it pleasant for all past and present students when in New ' York, and above all, to BOOST RHODE ISLAND.

On the 20th of May, 1012, a few of the Rhode Island State College Alumni met at the Metropolitan Hotel in Detroit, with an idea of forming a Club. They were somewhat disappointed in not having several Alumni who were in town at that time with them, but those who were present went ahead and formed the Rhode Island State College Club of Detroit. The above officers were elected. The object of the Club is purely of a social nature. They wished to keep in clo e touch with the College ard with each other, as they are all interested in the happenings at the College and are always glad to welcome any new members, who come there. They expect some day to have a very good sized organization there in Detroit and hope to be able to open up Club Rooms, but this will probably lie some little time in the future. The Pittsburgh Club GEORGE H. SHELDON, ’03 President HENRY N. BARLOW. 12 Secretary and Treasurer In the early fall of 1912 a sort f fraternal organization was formed by the Rhode Island graduates in and around Pittsburgh, the idea being to bring the fellows together in a social way to work for R. I. The necessity of keeping in touch with the other alumni and the college was immediately realized. Most of the members are with the Westinghouse Co. and desire, if possible, to assist any R. I. man in this line of work. The social end of the club affords the members a pleasing reaction rom their daily work, one which otherwise might not be obtained. It is desired that all R. I. men who are anywhere near Pittsburgh will stop in and see the boys there. 10S It lio do Island State College The New Science Hall After over two years of consistent and untiring effort, President Edwards and the Board of Managers succeeded in having an act passed through the General Assembly, in the spring of 1912, granting us $75,000 for a new building to be devoted to scientific purposes. As this Grist goes to press, the building lacks but one story and a roof. It is expected that it will be com- pleted by August 1, 1913. The building will be one hundred and fifty-six feet long in front with an outside distance, from front to rear, of seventy-two feet. It will be three stories high with a basement and the walls are being constructed of the same granite used in the construction of East Hall. The third floor will be devoted to the Botany Department, under Professor Merrow, and the Bacteriological Department, under Doctor Hadley. The Zoological Department, under Professor Barlow, and the Physics Depart- T he 19 14 Grist 109 ment under Professor Dickinson, will occupy the second floor, while the first floor will be devoted to the Chemistry Department, under Doctor Leighton. There will also be a large assembly room on the first floor. In the Botany Department there are to be tw ' o general laboratories for Botany I, one laboratory for Histology and Pathology, a room for a herba- rium and library combined, and two small rooms for the professor and an assist- ant. On the south side of the building there will be a glass house which will be used for Physiological Botany. For the Zoological Department there is to be one general laboratory 20x50 feet, one advanced laboratory 28x30 feet, one office 10x20 feet, one lecture room 20x30 feet, a museum 30x40 feet, and a small dark room, which will be used by both the Zoological and the Physics Departments. At the disposal of the Physics Department there is to be one recitation room, three main laboratories, one special optical laboratory, one instrument room and one office. There will be new equipment added to this depart- ment, especially for lectures and demonstrations. There is to be a lecture table equipped with gas and electricity. A motor generator will furnish a direct current. For works in light, there is to be a lecture room provided with metal shades in order to make the room perfectly dark. The Chemistry Department will have one general laboratory 30x57 feet for general chemistry and qualitative analysis, one quantitive laboratory 28x30 feet, one organic laboratory 20x30 feet, one weighing room 10x20 feet, one essaying room 10x20, one room 14x20 for physical and agricultural chemistry, one room 12x20 for water analysis, one laboratory 12x20 for electro cehmistry, two recitation rooms, each 15x20, two offices and supply and storage rooms. The assembly room will be capable of seating one hundred and fifty. It will be fitted with projection apparatus and a demonstrator’s table. This room will be used by any of the departments where lecturing is desired. 110 The 1914 Grist 111 1913 Poultry Club On January second, nineteen thirteen, we pitched our tepee at Rhode Island State College with Sandy Hook in the advance, scanning the horizon for the rolling hills of Kentucky. Father Time was at the camp fire with the shovel feeding string beans to Chief Red Spot. Doctor Ford superintended the unloading of the packs of note books. Then as “we were all willing,” with Shrimp and Pheasant as guides, we shouldered our little bags of Dry Mash and were welcomed at the City Hall by Judge Rickey. Doctor Lambert took us in charge and under his instructions we soon were able to produce Thousand Dollar birds. Chief Red Spot soon held a pow-wow, with Brodie as his chief scout, and the Granger pushing the quill. At this council the tribe organized as “The Lambert Poultry Club.” The tribe took several trails to different chicken wigwams. On one occasion Pheasant ordered a piano to appease his hunger. Brodie and Brownie manifested their appreciation of the meal by giving the charming waitress a bit of silver. Three of the tribe one day lost the trail to Bradley’s and were unable to find it for three days. Around the camp fire many thrilling tales Were told of the wilds of Kentucky. Doc. Lambert related of a certain young man who asked if it was proper to propose to a girl on his knees. “Yes,” was the answer, “or tell her to get off.” The councils of the Lambert Poultry Club close jy a wild whooping war-dance with the beating of tom-toms and uncanny shrieks of Red’s violin.

The play was well attended and was followed throughout the time with considerable interest. The set- ting of the scene was well chosen and very natural and aided very materi- ally in making the presentation realistic. Credit may here be given to the ma nagers for their efforts and ingenius planning in the development of the play. The curtain of night was raised at 7 A. M. sharp and disclosed a little red cabin setting quietly in the center of a quadrangular clearing. There was a path leading to his master’s mansion (Davis Ha|l) on one side, and another leading to the cotton fields on the other side. The light in the sky and the condition of the vegetation showed that the setting was on a bright morning in January. No smoke was curling up from the chimney which indicated that Uncle Tom was not yet up, and, as in those days of slavery, telephone conveniences were not at hand. The play went on without a hitch and was well received. It may be inter- esting to note that in the change of scenery Uncle Tom’s Cabin was drawn off the stage by horses.

No longer are they confined alone to Agricultural Colleges and experiment stations. For example, the Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore, Md., conducts a distinct horticultural course with botanical laboratories and experimental greenhouses. The greenhouse work is carried on in the same vigorous, thorough way so characteristic of this wonderful institution. The extensive group at Cornell University, we built.

Where can 1 obtain it? “ Who’s Who in America " contains the names of 9,643 markedly success- ful persons — representative list from all lines of American effort. Note the following deductions — of 12 million beginning life, 9643 mark- edly successful. Of these, 7676 markedly successful are from I 35,000 with a college education; of these 1967 markedly successful are from 11,800,000 without a college education.

As the City has given you a free high-school education, so the State and Nation are offering you free at Rhode Island State College an opportunity through a college education to increase your chance of success 350 times. Is it not worth while to take the opportunity? Can four years be more profitably spent?
