umveRsity of Rhode island LiBRaRy GIFT OF MRS. ELIZABETH W. ISNARDY I PUBLISHED BY THE JUNIOR CLASS OF THE RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE KINGSTON. RHODE ISLAND 1914 a a PROLOGUE a a HIL old grist mill has done its work and rests. Its old wheel, turned by the same h ad| lair breezes that have breathed upon us in our college life, has ground out our rich crop and is still. It will remain quiet until next year’s harvest is reaped, and then, anew, it will dutifully toil away until again it earns its rest. For the eighteenth time the harvest has been gathered and the grindings, chaff and all, have been garnered into this little volume. The toilers, from the sowers even to the gleaners and millers, have all lent their honest effort to the cause. May their labors be appre- ciated and criticism, however just, be lenient. ■ • PROLOGUE • » i " HE okl Jurist i : i » rests.

" Sheriff” Electrical Engineering Manager Class Baseball (2). In this picture, ladies and gentlemen, is depicted the sheriff. No one would think that this specimen with the vestibule-protected eyes was head of the Kingston police force. Nevertheless this fact is true. In due recognition of the only other policeman in town, it must be said that he is ably assisted by a very active bicycle traffic officer who travel nights and docs black- smithing days. The sheriff is recognized in the northern part of the state as a connoisseur of feminity and probably he will be landed in the matrimonial dragnet before very long, but you may rest assured that the unfor- tunate maiden that does the fishing will be able to master the pasteboards in a game of whist. Clifford A. Allenson, P I K Central Falls, R. T. “Pop” Electrical Engineer Glee Club (1) (2) (3): Assistant Leader (2): Leader (3) ; Class Vice President (2) ; Class Basket- ball ( 1); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Corporal Co. C. (3). Long, lean, and lanky. This specimen stands forth as a flat contradiction of all that should typify a member of the human race. Long dangling arms and a pair of legs that are in keeping with the upper extremities, his feet — yes, dear reader they are feet, even if they only look like portions of his legs turned up, they all point out the fact that their owner is out of place on this earth. Furthermore, it is only these above mentioned feet that prevent this long cool drink from playing the spider on the ceiling with some little bahv “fly” as is his occupation in Central Falls on weekends. “Oh, yes, “Pop” sings, too. and vies with the Lorelei of old. as with the rasping rattle of his rank, ragtime, roar, he lures his fellow men onto the rocks and stays there ducking ripe poultry fruit. Robert William Belfit, B t Winsted, Conn. “Bob " “Bel” Chemical Engineering Class Football (2) ; Class Basketball (2) (3) ; Cor- poral (2); Sergeant (3). “Bob” boosted the class membership one when he joined our ranks at the beginning of the Sopohmore year. Previously he had spent a year at Worcester Tech. “Bel " hails from Winsted, Conn., where they have recently adopted the stage coach as a means of conveyance, so. gentle reader, form your own opinion. Nevertheless we must admit that he has some vinegar since he made both class football and basketball. In the latter activity he is fairly clever, due, in a great measure, to considerable practice in pitching pennies when he was a street gamin. Although chemically inclined while on our campus yet if you met him in the neighborhood of Smith College, you’d say he was a dude. Raymond L. Barney, b Providence, R.

Hop Committee (2); Beacon Board (2) (3); Managing Editor (3); Editor-in-Chief 1915 Grist (3); Sergeant (3). . If there is any one reason why the capital city of this state should he called im-Providence. it’s " Slats. He is her greatest transgression. While “preping at Classical, this Eiffel Tower absorbed so much Greek that he has been “Greek” to us ever since. From the favored (?) few that know him. we glean that, like the rest of humanity, he has gray matter, but in this case it is granite. However, the two pre- dominating features of his makeup arc his raucous bass voice and yards and yards of legs. If one can imagine a huge phonograph on stilts he has a vividly accurate idea of " Slats.” . Listen, sh. " Bugs” was elected boss of the (Grist) mill this year and the elongated cuss has started an apprenticeship with a Miller of Narragansett. Will the orchestra play “In a Cottage By the Sea ?” Thank you ! Norman Harrison Borden,© X Providence, R.

Hop Committee (2); Corporal Co. A (2); Sergeant- Major (3); Class Debating Team (1); 1915 Grist Board (3). " Nap” landed in the wild and wicked village of Kingston three years ago, coming from the Provi- dence Technical High School. The boy has held his own in the field of studies and at the same time has entered into college life with a vengeance. The co-eds have taken considerable of his leisure but we may feel sure that his mind is not entirely with the occupants of Davis Hall for occasionally we hear loud noises about a young lady in Brooklyn. He has earned the position of football manager and also finds time to wander around the Chem. Lab. correcting Freshman notebooks. A marriage license seems to lie his aim in life at present. Kenneth Allen Bownell, Adamsville, R. I. " Hack” Chemical Engineering Class Track (1) (2); Varsity Track Squad (1) ( 2 ). " Hack” is the eldest son of the family of Adams- ville, R. I., and because of coming here the population of his home town has decreased thirty three per cent., there having been three townspeople when he was at home, his two parents and himself. Still you can ' t blame him for that. This individual, like the majority of the students continues year in and year out on the same routine, sleep, eat, and study. However, “Hack " does the mile in good fashion and training for this event has at times kept him away from his daily uneventful toil. 18 Philip Royal Cloke,A A Kingston, R. I. " Peleg” “Phil” Electrical Engineering Class Football (1) (2). After absorbing all the knowledge that the high schools of Trenton, N. J. could offer him, " Peleg” decided that New Jersey was no longer a fit place for him to waste his time in, so. despite the fact that he had been star fullback of his “prep” team (which could have trimmed easily Harvard or Yale), lie de- cided to cast his lot with Rhode Island. Just view his handsome features and then take a long draught of smelling salts. They ought to bring you to. " Phil” at once made a hit with his fellow- f reshies which fact later resulted in his membership in the law-breaking K. K. K. society and also changed his middle name to “Kletels.” " Phil” has never yielded to the temptations of Davis Hall or Wakefield but we suspect that he has a maiden hack in the heart of Jcrscvland. for he is still an ardent enthusiast of the beauties (?) of his home state. Carl Lafayette Coleman, P I K Orange, Mass. " Coley " " Swede " Agriculture Varsity Baseball (1) (2); Class Football (1) (2); Varsity Track (1) (2); Class Track (1) (2); Captain (2); Varsity Relay (1) (2). That famous old Chinese philosopher. Lao Tzu. once said. “Nga mi na teau,” which freely translated means “He who comes from Orange is a lemon. " “Coley” comes from Orange, Mass. " Yes., I was some ' athleticus ' when at Orange High. I played baseball and fooball and was some runner, too. I hate to speak of these facts, hut ' you can’t keep a good man down, as old Jonah said. " “Coley” has made good at R. I. in athletics as well as studies. He has big league aspirations and, no doubt, will sign a life contract and join the Wickford Grays of ' the Benedict League after graduating. Lillian Marguerite Donovan Westerly, R. Westerly, 6 :58 ; Kingston, 7 :38 ; Kingston, 5 :0 7 ; Westerly, 5 :43. This is Lillian ' s daily schedule. Saturday included. You see that most of her time is not spent at Kingston. There’s a reason. Lillian, from the first, has had the courage to struggle with applied science. Most of the girls have found it too scientific, but not so in this case. Dignity, true friendship, loyalty, and sticktoittiveness are all found in this lSer. Her most favorite study is Junior Debating. This is where she spends the most enjoyable hour of her work. Often her cheeks become ruddy as she waxes enthusiastic in her speeches.

Xorth Attleboro? Where is that place? Well, that question was permanently settled when “Gene " blew into Kingston back in 1911. Although an engineer, “his Knibs " finds plenty of time for other pursuits and is there strong when it comes to rough-housing or the manly art. His is a familiar face on all our class teams and he unfailingly succeeds in winning the ardent support of the fair sex on the side lines. During the early part of the Junior year “Gene " joined a certain club but on account of a chronic case of Lilabilitis. (a disease affecting the pericardical tissues, and generally occurring in youth), he was forced to quit. However, it was his own desire to resign and you can tell by the continual serious look of his countenance that he has more on his mind than he tells us about.

Before you read further, stop a minute and care- fully study what may be pictured here. It is a person, our " Lizzie. " The first time we realized his boyish importance was when he received an appoint- ment of office boy for the Beacon management. He was a very dutiful child and at the beginning of the present year we were informed that he had been promoted to the janitorship of the same concern. He also has been lady-in-waiting for Prof. Tyler’s cow and in the capacity of chore-boy for one of our village matrons attained the supermasculine breadth of chest you see here displayed. With the fatherly guidance of his two beloved roommates he will possibly amount to something some day. Their motto is “Where there is life there is hope.” 20 Carlisle Hall, B t Providence, R.

" Pug” is the apparently bashful boy who wears out his sole carrying back and forth from the college to the postoffice little missives of Cupid. Those close to " Pug " are not deceived, for his desk decorations reveal his true self. Aside from his affection for the women, this portly gentleman keeps in training for track by a continual munching of dining-hall hard- tack as he smiles with a happy air of wisdom and satisfaction that he is getting more board than lie really pays for. If “Pug” had gone out for track when he was a boy instead of waiting until he had accumulated his present corpulency, he might have been a winner. William Frank Hanlin, PI K Cranston, R. I. “Boob” Agriculture Class Football, Captain (1); Baseball (1) (2); Varsity Football (2) (3); Soph. Hop Committee(2). This handsome personage. VV. F. Hanlin, better known as " Boob,” fell off a train at Kingston in 1911 and occasionally gets back to his city (weekends). " Boob " first registered as an engineer but because of his ability to handle stock he soon shifted to the farmer’s course. When he is in his native haunts he can be found at the corner of Westminster and Dorrance streets in Providence watching the crowds go by. (Mind you. he isn’t a newsboy. ) In connection with the aggie work the rangy one often slides over into Edgewood where he does a little certifi-Caton for a friend of his. What we want you to understand is that he has a “best girl.” As an athlete Frank has made an enviable name for himself, holding down the varsity end in clean style. Some day, let us hope we may all visit “Boob ' s” little farm and use with him that square box of sawdust that will rest in front of his kitchen stove. Ada Laplace Harding, 2 T A Lvnie, Conn.

She is a leader among the women of the college and her advice is often sought for by the co-eds. In addi- tion to this Ada has been prominent in social affairs at the college throughout her stay. The course in Home Economics is her burden, and as conditions point she will undoubtedly use her knowledge for its original purpose rather than for teaching. Good luck, Ada. 21 Leon Irving Harris, r A 2 . “Gyp” “Red” Electrical Engineer Class Football (2) ; Class Track (2) ; Class Base- ball (2). " Gyp " joined us in September of our Sophomore year. He entered, for reasons unknown, as a chemi- cal engineer but soon found that a current of elec- tricity could do more damage per linear foot than a current of H2 S. so we have with us to-day, ladies and gentlemen, “Liepsic Louis, " the electrical. As regards the interest he shows in the " women " we can say a whole lot but wont. However, it is a forgone conclusion that from the fact that he receives a letter every now and then, signed “Yours,” he must have someone back home. " Red” had some stuff on the class football team and also has more when he appears as Caduceus early in the spring. At present " Gyp " is working on an original con- trivance for the extermination of stray cats by the placing of two metal plates on a fence rail, connecting the plates with a heavy current and then chasing the yodlers across the death trap. He expects that this invention will fix him so that he may thereafter live on his “rep.” Royal Carlton Hudson, © X Phenix, R. I. " Joe” Applied Science Varsity Baseball (1) (2); Class Eecutive Com- mittee (2); Class Basketball Manager (3); Secre- tary and Treasurer of Student Council (3) ; Corporal (3). " Joe” hit Kingston in the Indian summer of 1911. He immediately joined the R. A. Cadets of Chicken- ville in which he was a distinguished and brave mem- ber. During the years of 1912-13 he was a faithful member of the K. K. K. Club, Room 44. " Joe’s” chief dissipation is spearing arrowheads. It is sai d that he once picked one up at a distance of twenty-seven feet. Ever since Joe has been with us he has made almost weekly trips to his home town, “Phonix,” which may have been the cause of a great curiosity to know who “she” is. May they “live ever happily afterwards. " Albert C. Hunter, B ♦ E. Providence, R.

This oil painting is life size and an excellent work. Although society holds East Providence responsible for many breaches of the law, yet probably its most grievous crime is “Doc.” Fifteen minutes after he arrived in these environs our “Little tine” asked the direction to Davis Hall (Co-ed’s Retreat), and he still receives his mail there. Yes. yes, as a " fusses,” " Doc” is the Swiss. He finds every maiden a Circe and loves to be enchanted. Just what the future holds for this diminutive creature we know not but we venture to say that if his present propensity for dabbling in police circles in his home town holds strong, he will be a sleuth. (For further particulars inquire of Chief of Police, East Providence.) Next to “Doc ' s " infatuation for the " makers and breakers of worlds” is his zest for microscopical bio- logical subjects, due probably for his natural love of things minute (bacteria, amoeba, and himself.) " May the big world be easy on this tiny specimen.” John L. Jackowitz, P I K Kast Providence, R. I. “Jack " Applied Science Class Football (1) (2); Captain (2); Captain Second Football Team (2) (3) ; Varsity Football (3); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3). “Jack” catne from the pretty little town of East Providence and his smiling face (that which can be partly seen hiding behind his enormous nose), and cute figure are often seen bumping along simultan- eously with the rest of his body. This bumping effect is caused by his tiny strides. Let it suffice to say that one of the battalion swords had to be short- ened for him so that it would not drag on the ground as he bumped. His first love was a tall stately French queen, but since then he has settled in Wakefield. Although handicapped by a tiny body and a Jeru- salem nose and a peculiar cackling laugh, “Scoop, the Cub Reporter,” ought to make a success of life.

His red top-not and his ability to play football soon made him a popular character on the campus. During the early part of his second year he was elected Big Chief Battle-axe of the K. K. K. Club, and the H. R. ' s of 44 will have to admit that he has filled the office ( ? ) very efficiently.

If the saying that “Great minds have purposes; others, wishes” is true. “Rep” certainly has many pur- poses and wishes. He has gained his reputation by his calmness, congeniality and cheerfulness. “Rep” is the inventor of the railroad bug which he guaran- tees will find the lost P. T. ' s if fed on railroad curves. “Cy” is not inclined towards fussing, as he believes that the opposite sex are too much like grasshoppers. He claims that you can’t tell which way they’re going to hop. His ambition is to survey a trans-Atlantic railroad and, also to purify the Ozark Mountains by means of the trickling filter. Here’s looking at you, “Rep.” 23 Alfred Patrick Kivu n, A A ♦ Kingston, R. I. “Kivy” ‘Politician” Elec trical Engineer “A. P.” “Patrick " Class Baseball (1) (2); Captain (2); Soph.

He was so attached to his high school that he took a little P. G. work there, but that has fixed him so that he will never have to here. His serious face has grown wrinkled in the past two years under his assiduous_ (?) study. “A. P.” has been an energetic member of our class, having entered into several activities since his arrival, among which may best be mentioned his originating the K. K.

" Sandy” was given to us by Woonsocket but we hold no grudge out against the " Rubber City” for this individual. " Sandy ' s” chief diversion is calling on a certain young lady in Wakefield during the week, while on Sundays he returns to his home town to call on his steady. He is very clever with the drum- sticks being able to play anything on the drums from an Indian war dance to a dirge. We predict a great future for him, for even if he should not become a success in musical lines, he can fall back on his “rep” and analyze dolomite for a living. George Mitchell Lewis, Kingston, R.

Here it is, the homeliest gentleman that ever car- ried a cane or drank anything stronger than cider. He has the reputation of being the biggest bluffer on the campus, the best drummer in South County, and also of being a clever soprano singer, having sung once for " His Grace, the Grand Duke of Russia.” He passed the winters of his youth in Florida and for this reason he does not skate. " Handsome " is a would-be instrumentalist but doubtlessly he will never pass the would-be stage, as he has already destroyed three pianos on the campus and two in his home. If he graduates in 1926 we wish him luck; if later than that, he has our sympathy. P. S. — His gait is not caused by corns, the reason rests wholly in his stomach. 24 William E.

He settled down, how- ever, and has taken active part in class and varsity athletics, with civil engineering on the side. The class extends its appreciation to “Stout” for his willingness in being the class " goat” in the Sophomore year. " Mack’s jocularity, goodwill and control of temper will either make him or break him when he’s out squinting through a transit in a year or two. Wesley C. Miller, ©x Providence, R. I.

He was not large of stature but made up for this shortcoming by the quality of his voice. He may be heard every morning tuning himself to the zephyrs that hurricane around the Watson House. Next to his madness for melody is his deep affection for the opposite sex. In fact, this is his favorite topic when he is not engaged in attempts at song. But “Nick” is no laggard despite his voice, as is shown by the string of A ' s in his wake. He dabbles a little in athletics, his efforts in this line being very successful.

Three years ago the town of Slatersville found itself in need of a new lighting system, for “Torchy” had left for Kingston and since then, of all the bright, shining lights of the 1915 class, he has been the most brilliant Since coming to college he has mastered all known branches of mathematics and a few that are un- known. He is thoroughly familiar with the principles of linear velocity and has demonstrated this nkowl- edge in many a hundred yard dash. He has suc- ceeded in other athletics also, having made the bean bag team in his first year, and the fussing team in his second. In the latter connection it may be said that his favorite song is “Always Take a Girl Named Daisy.” Upon graduating, Frank will go to Usquepaugh to take a position as illumination engineer. 27 Harold Clayton Wilcox, A A ' ►South Milford, Mass " Bill " Agriculture Class Baseball (1) (2) ; Polygon (3).

These two years have seen the remoulding of former high school stars with their ever present caput inflatum, the refashioning of the rustic “hick” and the reshaping of the grind into men. Some have learned to study and some have forgotten how ; some have been stricken with love while others prefer to amuse themselves with a lively game of soltaire, but each one has found his place at Rhode Island and is making the best of it. Athletics for 1916 have been but a fair success. Sad to relate both 1915 and 1917 suffered defeat at the hands of the 1916 gridiron warriors. In each case this class proved conclusively what spirit and diligent work can accomplish. 1915 found the groove in the baseball game a year ago as she did also in basket- ball. Nevertheless, 1916 has her quota of R. I. men and we may expect more next year. A fair number of honor students and a large representation in each line of student activity leads us to believe that our Sophs are doing their share for Rhode Island State and that we may be hopeful of the future of the class. 31 32 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE 1916 Class Roll Honorary Member, Professor Hermann Churchill.

It was indeed a shock to the upper classmen to be confronted at every turn by one of these cherubic countenances and we can for this reason in no way hold them responsible for any seemingly thoughtless action they took toward the innocents. At the same time, however, the college was pleased to receive such a liberal supply of Freshmen and since that time has been trying to make them over into real college stock, a species that will recognize and demand its just rights from 1918. 1917, as the rule goes for newcomers, lost a game football fight to the Sophs. The Freshmen have several clever men in their lineup and played a consistently steady game, being beaten only through a lack of football experience. Track also saw the defeat of the “kids.” With several firsts on their records the lower classmen appeared to lie down and allow the Sophs to trim them. Basketball, however, changed the break of luck and after a scrappy and lively game, T 7 came oflf with the laurels, the score being 1917, 17 ; 1916, 16. Aside from athletics the class has taken long strides in literary and debating work. It may be justly proud of its two representatives on the Varsity Debating Team. As the curtain falls on this year ' s accomplishments, it is pleasant to say that, although there are still numerous babes in the collection who have grown very little during this session, it appears as if 1917 will ably take care of her share of the college life hereafter. 35 36 TI1E 1915 GRIST 1917 CLASS ROLL Honorary Member, Prof. George R.

Webb, Jackowitz, McLeod. Hanlin 42 THE 1915 GRIST 43 FOOTBALL The football season of 1913 opened with the brightest prospects for several seasons. Twenty-five men reported to Captain Sherwin for preliminary practice before the opening of college. This practice consisted mainly in kicking, running down under punts, and in falling on the ball. Scrimmaging was indulged in but to a slight degree, but by the twenty- third of September, registration day, the squad had hardened up and each night gave the stu- dent body a good exhibition of football. The squad had brought out an abundance of ma- terial and with only two positions to fill through the loss of graduates the omens for a successful season seemed to be exceptionally auspicious. Too heavy- a schedule and a long list of injuries broke up the team before the season had fairly started and turned our hopes into despair. Too much praise cannot be given Captain Sherwin for his work behind the line. Sher- win’s spirit was the backbone of both the of- fence and defence in every game he took part in. Coach Ashbaugh’s work cannot be criticized in any way. He worked hard and earnestly throughout the season and with an even break of luck would have turned out a winner. If anything, he overworked the team rather than under- worked it the first part of the season. Manager Reiner held the managerial reins in a clever and consistent fashion and had his team at heart in every game both at home and away. Rhode Island played its best game in its opening appearance against Amherst, but lost by the score of 10-0. Line weaknesses which were evident throughout the season explain the defeat. Both teams played hard and aggressive football, Amherst holding a slight advantage. The work of the opposing fullbacks, Sherwin and McGay, was the feature of the game. 44 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE Brown recovered from a humiliating defeat by Colby and swamped R. I.’s aspirations for a victor) ' in the annual game by the score of 19-0. Rain and a wet field, the Brown management said, prompted them to postpone the game from Saturday to the following Wednesday. But this Wednesday, the field was just as bad as it had been on the previous Saturday. Brown had however mastered her new formations in the intervening time and had little trouble in defeating us. McIntosh played a good defense game and Sherwin shone on both offense and defense, taking the brunt of the latter. With six Varsity men out of the game on account of injuries as a result of the first two games, Rhode Island had no show against the superior Maine team, losing by a score of 44-0. With many thanks to the timekeepers for a little extra time at the end of both halves. Colby managed to beat R. 1.. 19-6. Although R. I.’s team was some- what crippled they played a hard, consistent game and with a fair show would have finished with a closer score at least. Although Webb broke his nose early in the game, he pluckily stuck it out, and scored R. I. ' s six points on two pretty drop kicks. Rhode Island scored its lone victor)’ over Fort Adams in a field of mud and water. The first score came in the third period when Edmonds blocked a Fort Adams’ punt and Ebbs fell on the ball behind the line. A little later McLeod went over from the 15-yard line, for the second touchdown. Price kicked the goal on the first touchdown. Only during the second half did Rhode Island show her real ability. During this time the work of the whole team was all that could be asked for. Rhode Island journeyed to Durham a week later only to be defeated by our old rivals. Inability of the line to open holes for the backs and the inability of the backfield to stop the New Hampshire forward passes, explains the defeat. New Hampshire’s ability at the open game was the superior point that won the game for them. Rhode Island ' s last game, a defeat by Boston College, by a score of 27-0, was the most unsatisfactory game of the season. Constant squabbling among the players and officials marred the game from start to finish. Boston scored all its points in the first half, three of the four touchdowms resulting from long runs after forward passes. During the second half neither team showed any superiority. Leroy B. Newton of Fairhaven, Mass., was elected captain of the team for next year shortly after the end of the season. He played halfback on the eleven THE 19 15 GRIST 45 for three years being a great ground gainer in the open field and also a clean and fearless defensive player. Captain Newton’s leaving college, however, in Feb- ruary, brought a cloud of gloom over the campus and necessitated the selection of another mat; for the captaincy. Wesley C. Brigham, ’16 of Pawtucket, R. I., was chosen thereupon. Captain Brigham, the most popular and hard working lineman on the team, has played tackle for the past two years. By the loss of the five seniors. Captain Sherwin, Newton, Tully, Webb and Webster, the team of next season is suffering a severe handicap, but, under the leadership of Brigham, the giant forward, there should be no reason why the football standard of Rhode Island State cannot be brought up to its former high standard. Although the team as far as winning is concerned had a very unsuccessful season, still this unfortunate occurence has in a way been of considerable benefit to Rhode Island football. Accidents, time and again, gave opportunities to un- tried men, who, after a good taste of college football and along with it the sting of defeat, have gained confidence in themselves and have come from the battle experienced. These men, with the regulars, and the members of the Freshman and Sophomore teams of last year, especially the former, for there is considerable varsity material in 1917, should return next fall and strive most ar- dently to give Rhode Island a victorious team in 1914. Those men who received their letters for the gridiron work were : Captain Sherwin, Webb, Tully, Webster. Newton, all T4; Price, Hanlin, McIntosh, Jackowitz, of 1915; and Ebbs, Seifert, Lloyd, McLeod and Captain-elect Brig- ham of 1916, and Manager Reiner, ’14. The scores of the season were : Rhode Island 0 — Amherst 10 Rhode Island 0 — Brown 19. Rhode Island 0 — Maine 44. Rhode Island 6— Colby 10. Rhode Island 13 — Fort Adams 0. Rhode Island 0 — New Hampshire 13. Rhode Island 0 — Boston College 27. mmm ’VARSITY BASEBALL TEAM Hudson, Coleman, Lennox, Seifert. Sherwin (Mgr.), Nichols. Meyer Sullivan, Briden, Newton (Capt.). Redding, Tully 46 THE 1915 GRIST 47 BASEBALL Late in February, Captain Newton issued a call for candidates for baseball. About twenty new men, in addition to those who had played on the team the preceding year, reported and worked out daily in Lippitt Hall until the dia- mond on the athletic field was put in shape for outdoor practice. The first cut saw some ten men off the list and each afternoon a much snappier practice. By the seventeenth of April, the date of the opener, the team ap- peared in fine trim, hut disheartening defeat greeted their efforts, the score being Bowdoin, 14; Rhode Island, 4. Meyer was on the mound for Rhode Island and for the first six innings he kept the Maine hoys well in hand but luck broke favorably on the visitors in the last three innings and they galloped off with the game, errors by the home team helping them to a considerable extent in the run-getting. On the following Saturday, Rhode Island took an overtime game from Boston College, the score being 5 to 4 in ten innings. Timely hitting by the homesters in the last round de- cided the game. It was the most interesting and exciting game of the season, with the home team displaying its best form behind the superb pitching of Meyers. Rhode Island started scoring in the second. Seifert singled, stole second, and came home on an error. Boston took a two- run lead in the sixth. Rhode Island tied the score by scoring in the eighth and ninth. Lennox got a free pass, stole second and third, and came home on Meyer’s single. In the ninth Seifert singled, stole second, and trotted to the plate on Briden ' s timely wallop. The tenth told the story for Rhode Island. Lennox CAPT. ELECT SULLIVAN 48 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE got a life on an error, stole second, took third on Sullivan’s single, while Sullivan took second on the throw in. Hudson’s big stick brought both men in on a pretty single to center. The third game, with Saint Michael’s College, was a defeat for Rhode Island but the team held together well throughout the nine innings and lost only from an inability to hit the Green Mountain pitcher when hits meant runs. This game coming as a defeat so soon before the Brown game blasted the hopes of some but instilled a stronger fighting spirit into the players. With the exception of the first inning, when St. Michael’s scored two runs, both teams played an exceptionally even game. Both pitchers were in form, and the teams fielded well. St. Michael’s started scoring in the first inning. O’Malley ' s single was followed by two errors and a fielder s choice, which allowed O ' Malley and McGraw to score. Rhode Island gained a run in the last of the second. Newton singled, stole second, and came home on Nichol’s two-bagger. The last score was made in the eighth. Tully reached first on an error, was sacrificed by Newton and scored on an error. Hudson was the individual star of the game, while Coleman worked in clever form on the mound. With a host of rooters who walked, automobiled, freight-trained and parlor- carred to Providence, the Rhode Islanders went into the Brown camp toned Up to the point of carrying off the Bear, but were sent away empty-handed. The annual game went to Brown, 5-1. Inability to solve Cram’s delivery when hits meant scores told the story of defeat. For the Brown nine, Crowther, the diminutive shortstop, starred with a clean slate on ten chances, while Brlden and Price for Rhode Island each made a hair-raising catch of bids for triples. Nichols caught a steady game, throwing to the bases in major league fashion. The first three innings were al out even. Meyer held the Brown batters powerless, and Cram seemed to have the Indian sign on the Rhode Island batters when men were on the bases. Although the game was almost entirely devoid of features, it was interesting and the result pleasing, though not all that was hoped for by the good-sized contingent of R. I. supporters. Brown scored two runs in the fourth on a pass, an error of a difficult fly to left, a double by Andrews, and a scratch hit by Dukette. Another score came THE 1915 GRIST 49 in the fifth on two hits and a sacrifice. One run was scored in the seventh and eighth on two hits and a sacrifice, and on a hit, a pass and a long sacrifice fly to center. Rhode Island scored her only tally in the ninth with two down. Seifert doubled and came home on an error. Loose fielding and weak batting were responsible for Rhode Island ' s defeat at the hands of Trinity in a listless thirteen-inning game. The home team had the game well in hand on several occasions but fumbles and poor throws behind Coleman dragged the game into the extra innings. “Coley” pitched winning ball and deserved to win. Rhode Island tied up the score at four all in the sixth inning when Briden knocked three runs in. From that time on, neither team scored until the thirteenth when Trinity got three singles in a row and won the game. Nichols, behind the bat, caught a splendid game, nailing runner after runner on the bases. Rhode Island met a bad reverse at New York in the following game when Fordham romped off with a 16-4 game. The game started off bright enough for R. I., Meyer striking out the first three at bat and Lennox banging out a homer in the second with two on bases. Fordham got to Meyer, however, in the fourth and scored seven runs, after which R. I. had no chance. In a hotly contested game at Durham, N. H., New Hampshire nosed out a victory from R. I., the score being six to five. The two teams were evenly matched until the tenth. Both pitchers received good support. Coleman pitched good ball until he weakened in the tenth when Meyer relieved him but was unable to check the batting rally. Bissell did clever work for New Hampshire. In the last of the ninth with one man down McPheteis got a scratch hit, but was forced out at second by Jones. Jones scored a minute later on Burbee’s two-bagger. Cram flied out to Sullivan, leaving the score 2-2. In the tenth Sullivan flied out to McPheters. Hudson and Newton both walked and both scored on Tully’s two bagger to left. Tully came home on Briden’s single. The three runs looked pretty good but the) were not enough. Reardon walked. Gale and Bissell singled, filling the bases. Meyer relieved Coleman, but could not stop the batting rally. Brackett and Fernald singled driving in two runs and McPheters drove a long sacrifice flv to center, scoring 50 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE Bissell. Jones followed with a scratch hit, sending Brackett across the pan with the fourth and winning run. Briden and McPheters were the heavy stickers, both getting three hits out of four times at hat. Tully ' s timely double in the tenth was one of the batting features. Sullivan’s ability at spearing long flies was the feature of the fielding. Rhode Island finished the season by easily winnning from Norwich 10-0. At no time did R. I. have any particular trouble to keep Norwich from crossing the pan. Interest in the game began to wane after the sixth inning, for it was then evident that Meyer was master of the situation. Meyer worked in fine form, allowing but one safe hit. The game offered R. I. hatters a fine chance to raise their batting averages, the team coralling fourteen hits off Murray ' s delivery, each man getting one or more hits. Tully led with two doubles and a single out of five times at bat. Meyer scored R. I.’s first tally in the third. Meyer, Sullivan, Hudson and Newton singled scoring Meyer and Sullivan. R. I. put the game on ice in the sixth with four tallies. Newton walked, Tully doubled, Murray hit Seifert, Briden and Nichols doubled, scoring Newton, Tully, Seifert, and Briden. Three more runs came in the seventh. Errors on Hudson’s and Newton ' s grounders, a single by Tully, a double by Seifert and singles by Hudson and Nichols scored Newton and Tully. Two more runs came across in the eighth on Newton’s and Tully’s doubles. Tully and Meyer starred for R. I. Munsell played a good game behind the bat for Norwich. Although the list of results of the season ' s games is not written wholly with wins nevertheless in due consideration of the team itself it must be said that the luck that decides many a ball game did not spangle on our side. The nine, although a loser in six of the eight contests was a far better one than the scores would indicate. Two games were lost in extra innings. The last contest in which R. I. whitewashed Norwich would seem to show that the ball tossers had just hit their pace. The personnel of the team also points to the fact that few, if any, organizations that have represented R. I. on the diamond have been any better as regards individuals. In Coleman and Meyer we may be justly proud of two of the best pitchers in New England collegiate circles. THE 1915 GRIST 51 Nichols, as a backstop, was hard to beat, with his buoyant lighting spirit. The infield, with Seifert, Tully, Lennox and Captain Newton, formed a breastwork that a ground ball could not pierce. The gardners, Sullivan, Hudson, Briden, and Price were each men that could be relied upon. The prospects for next season are more than bright with only a loss of Briden and Captain Newton. Under the leadership of Captain-elect John L. Sullivan, the veteran outfielder, R. I. will be represented by the fastest team in its history. The scores for the past season were : Rhode Isand, 4 : Bowdoin, 14. Rhode I sand, 5 : Boston College, 4. Rhode Island, 3; St. Michaels, 5. Rhode Island, 1 ; Brown, 5. Rhode Island, 4: Trinity, 5.

ELECT KINNEY TRACK MEETINGS With meets in view with New Hampshire and Tufts, candidates for varsity track were more num- erous than ever before. Practice began on the first of April and continued strenuously until the inter class meet, which aided in the choice for entries for the New Hampshire meet. New Hampshire won the first meet on their own field by the score of 74 to 34. With Tabor, Coleman, and Kinney, we were well fortified in the running events, but New 1 lampshirc had us more than balanced in the weight and field events. The Tufts meet, held on our own athletic field, was a victory for the visitors. Atwater of Tufts, with three firsts in the distance runs, and Capt. Irons of Rhode Island, with two in the hurdles, were the stars of the meet. Rhode Island was especially weak again in the field and weight events. The score was Tufts, 75 ; Rhode Island, 33. 54 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE RESULTS 100 yd. Dash. 1st, Tabor, R. I. 2nd, Sellers, N. H. 3rd, Forester, N. H.

A tennis tournament was arranged, but because of the delay in preparing the courts, the tournament was not completed. THE 1915 GRIST 63 RHO IOTA KAPPA HONORARY MEMBER Du.

This year the club is playing “Alabama” by Augustus Thomas. Arrange- ments have been made to have the play put on in a number of the towns of the state. THE 1915 GRIST 81 MUSICAL CLUBS CLIFFORD A.

Medberry Vice President Aloy Soong Secretary-Treasurer This organization is one of the oldest of the college. Its membership consists of men interested in debating especially on national and civic economic questions. The club has jurisdiction over all interclass debates from which the members of the varsity team are chosen. This year through the courtesy of the alumni association a loving cup was offered to the winner of the Sophomore- Freshman debate. The Sophomores were victorious and the cup is now in their custody. 84 THE 1915 GRIST 85 ’VARSITY DEBATING TEAM The fourth annual debate with M. A. C. was held in Lippitt Hall early in March. The question was: Resolved, that the M unroe Doctrine as a system or policy of intervention should be abandoned by the government of the United States. M. A. C. won the debate by a unanimous vote of the judges. Her argu- ments were good and their delivery excellent. Rhode Island presented several strong arguments but the M. A. C. team proved the more efficient debators and won the decision. Ex-Governor Burchard was chairman of the debate. The speakers for Rhode Island were Eben G. Townes, ' 17, Captain; Harry Cohen, T 7, and Alov Soong t T4. 86 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE ORCHESTRA The college orchestra in its present form was organized last year and had a very successful season. This year, as yet there has been little time for activity. Plans are being made by which the organization will soon have considerable op- portunity to play. The orchestra has been of much assistance to the faculty and co-eds during the year, music being furnished at several functions managed by these bodies. Albert C. Hunter... Thomas W.

A. of the past year has been an active factor in the life of the college, providing a visiting speaker at each of its weekly meetings and also carrying on deputation work among the foreign population of Peace Dale. It is hoped next year that with a larger organization more enthusiasm may be aroused and, through this, more efficient work may be accomplished both at college and in Peace Dale. 87 88 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE The membership of the Association is larger than ever before. The meetings, which are held regularly each week in Davis Hall have been very interesting, a number of meetings having been in charge of different members of the Faculty. In March, the annual play “Breezy Point” was given by the Association in Lippitt Hall. With the assistance of the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. U. have given the two annual receptions, to the Freshmen in September, and to the Poultry Students in January. The delegates to the Young Woman ' s Conference at Northfield, Mass., were Miss Ada L. Harding, T5, and Miss Kmelie M. Curran, ’16. THE 19 15 GRIST AGRICULTURAL CLUB William E. Anderson Carlisle Hall George G. Guinness . . Myron A. Hawkins .. President Vice President Secretary T reasurcr The year just passed has been in every way the most successful one through which the Agricultural Club has passed. Weekly meetings have been sub- stituted for semi-monthly meetings, and the average attendancce has been double that of any previous year. In addition to addresses by various faculty members, many practical and scientific men have been secured from outside to address the club. On March 17, the club had an illustrated lecture on “The Dawn of Plenty.” It is affiliated with the New Engla nd Federation of Agricultural Students, and is represented in the various students’ judging contests held throughout New England. 90 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE The Rhode Island State College Branch of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers The Electrical Engineering Society of Rhode Island State College was or- ganized by a number of engineering students in February. 1913. The body became affiliated with the American Institute of Electrical Engineers early last June, and hence, is under the supervision of this organization. Due to the mem- bership in the Institute the members receive many instructive leaflets. The purpose of the society is to keep the students, in general, in touch with all the current applications and discoveries in the field of electricity. This is accomplished by the students presenting papers at each meeting, the reading of which is followed by a short comment by the faculty members. OFFICERS. William H. Webb Leroy A.

All through the winter months while the annual college poultry course was in session, many discussions and lectures were held by this organization. As the regular poultry course offered by the college is confined to the winter months, the activities of the club are necessarily somewhat limited to that par- ticular season. Nevertheless, the society is becoming stronger and its member- ship larger with each succeeding class. It is hoped that soon the cooperation of other similar clubs can be secured and thus there may be built up gradually a strong and permanent factor of affairs at Rhode Island.

This club is at present one of the most prosperous of our alumni associations. On April 25th the club held its first annual banquet at the Narragansett Hotel, several faculty members being present to congratulate the club on its first birthday. NEW YORK CLUB OFFICERS. William A. Ballou, ' 04 President Edith C. Keefer, TO Secretary-Treasurer The Rhode Island Club of New York, the first branch of the general alumni association to organize, has nearly twenty-five members. Meetings are held monthly at the homes of the different alumni. During the past winter a well-appointed dinner was held at the Hotel Marseilles at which time several of the faculty, including President Edwards, spoke. THE 1915 GRIST 103 DETROIT CLUB OFFICERS. C. C. Cross, ’00 President R. N. Soule, ' 00 Secretary and Treasurer On the 20th of May, 1912, a few of the alumni who were living in the vicinity of Detroit, gathered at the Metropolitan Hotel in that city and formed the Rhode Island State College Club of Detroit. The club is purely of a social nature but its desire at the same time is to keep in touch with the affairs of the college and lend a helping hand to all Rhode Islanders who may arrive in the environs of Detroit. PITTSBURG CLUB OFFICERS. Georue H. Sheldon, ’08 President Henry N. Barlow, ’12 Secretary-Treasurer In the fall of 1912 a fraternal organization was formed by the graduates of Rhode Island who were situated in and around Pittsburg, the idea being to bring the fellows together in a social way and at the same time to boost Rhode Island State. The majority of the members are engineers and they desire to help es- pecially any man interested in that line of endeavor who may find himself in the neighborhood of the Smoky City. SCIENCE HALL On the south side of the quadrangle stands the newly completed Science Hall. Work was begun upon this building in July, 1912, and after several delays was finished in September, 1913. The building consists of three stories with a capacious basement. The en- tire outer structure is of granite obtained at the college quary near by. The edifice measures one hundred and fifty-six feet in length, while the outer lateral measurement is seventy-six feet. The third floor is devoted to the sciences of botany and bacteriology ; the second to physics and zoology, while the first is occupied by the chemistry de- partment together with a large auditorium used for lecturing purposes. The building is fully equipped with all the latest scientific apparatus and appliances in the line of heating, lighting and plumbing, thus making an ideal modern recitation and lecture hall. Science Hall has been in use since the beginning of the present college year, and today stands forth with its great doors swung wide, invitingly bidding those who would penetrate the mysteries of science to enter and partake of the know- ledge stored between its four granite walls.

The business of to-day is to consider Mr. Jones’ case, which you all know, has to do with the keeping- of liquor in his room with the intention of drinking the same. Our gum- shoe is to he commended for his detective work in obtaining evidence of the existing conditions. “Now, Mr. . will you kindly tell what you know of the case? " Second Head Master: “Upon last Tuesday during inspection Mr. Jones was not at home, so accordingly, I opened his room with my skeleton key. Every- thing was apparently in good order, but on looking beneath his bed I found a large green bottle which contained a liquid. Not knowing what is was and con- sidering it was my business to find out, I tasted it and found it to be Scotch Whiskey. I gave my assistant a taste so that he might corroborate my testimony here. Then we took it with us to my office.” First Head Master, in a comely lady’s voice: ‘‘1 do not think that Scotch is so bad for anyone that it should be prohibited here.” Instructor In Shop Work: “Well, I do. I think we should take extreme measures to overcome this wicked habit.” First Head Master: " I think that if there arc to be any restrictions, they should be lenient. The student body here is held down altogether too much. I believe in considerble liberty. I hardly think that a quart of whiskey every week would hurt any strong man, especially Mr. Jones. W hat do you think, Prof. ?” Prof, in Zoology: “Ye-e-e-e-e-es, I think you’re right. It’s probably as good as any soda water I ever drank.” Prop, of Mathematics: “How do you know it was whiskey? Doos it look like it ?’’ Second Head Master, somewhat piqued: “Perhaps if I don’t know whiskey when I smell it, we had better have it analyzed.” Head Master: “We will take Mr. ' s word for it but it seems best to have Dr. Tellall U. Know analyze the sample that our inspector has. " Hereupon the meeting adjourned. TWO DAYS LATER Head Master: Please come to order. You will kindly pass the sample around the assembly.” Prof, of Botany, on receiving the bottle : “Aaaaah, what a fine specimen. Hasn ' t it exquisite fragrance?” Instructor in Freehand Drawing, taking up same and eyeing it at arm’s length : " Do you think that that is Scotch? I believe that Scotch has just a hint — of a tint — of a shade — darker color than that. Do you not think so?” Head Master: “I believe that we are now ready for the report of the analysis.” Inspector:” What was it you found? Was it whiskey?” Dr. Tellall U. Know: " No, Mr. , you’re not quite right. However your conclusions were not far from correct, for the liquid is a lubricant but it belongs to a wholly different class of compounds. After diligent work I have found the sample to be kcrosinc oil. You must have had another solution.” Head Master: “I think now that we can exonerate Mr. Jones. Doubtlessly he was using the kerosine for a cold. Mistakes will occur in the best regulated of families.” After the singing of a hymn the meeting adjourned. McLeod (on his way to the Station in a college bus notices another wagon some distance ahead) : — “We’ll catch up to them in a little while.” Doc " Wood: — “Yes, if one of their horses breaks a leg.” Rev. Levi B. Edwards (in Chapel) : — “The bar on an ocean liner is in a very advantageous position, as you know, President Edwards.” Do you, Prexy ? Pkof. Boardman (after several seconds of hesitation) : — " Life is one darn thing after another.” We would advise that he made a slight mistake. McGill on East Hall steps, eyeing the lucky gentlemen who escort the fair co-eds across the campus after each meal: — “Well, Baxter, I wish I had a girl.” Baxter: — “Well, Jimmy hasn’t come out yet, has she?” McGill: — “It’s Glasheen’s turn this noon. Mine, tonight.” Proi-. Barlow in Zoo VII.: — “How many teeth have you Miss Watson?” Miss Watson : — “Twenty-four.” Prof. Barlow : — “Well, you’re younger than I thought you were.” Prof. Smith in Chem. IV.: — “If you have more than two cuts in this course you will be excused from taking the subject.” Hawkins: — “What if you have three already?” N. B. If Mr. Hawkins lasts, he will take the course next year. Prof. Tyler (in Trigonometry): — “All authorities now allow four feet to every hen.” Nichols, T5, in English Criticism, reads a “short story” in a magazine only to find that it was but the beginning of a “Continued-in-our-next. " Result no report (and he got by with it). Dr. Leighton (in Chemistry III. after “Clint Hawkins has awaked “Boob” Hanlin by putting snow on “Boob ' s” spine): — “I’m sorry they disturbed you, Mr. Hanlin. “Boob” : — “Oh, that’s all right. " Miss FlEagle: — “I think I could learn to love Mr. Martel.” Miss Waller : — “They say he is some devil.” Miss FlEagle: — “You know I like that kind. Ha, Ha.” Miss Waller: — “He’s a fine fellow. They say he has lots of character.” Miss Cham pi, in : — “I wish he had a little more steam and not quite so much character.” Prof. Smith to Coleman: — “What is cider?” Coleman : — “Acetic acid.” Prof. Smith : — “I guess you’re thinking of hard cider, Mr. Coleman.” It is rumored that several students got tired of Prof. Lichtenthaeler’s ge- ology class and left occasionally by the ladies’ entrance. 118 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE The T6 class cannot but whimper When they recall a Sabbath last winter. How the T5 brains, alas so bright. Conquered the husky Freshmen’s might. The ' 16 flag from the top-mast floated, While over their strength the kidlets gloated ; But soon a cry at the dining hall door. And out they flocked, those children sore. “They’ve taken our flag,” one big boy sighed, “Prexy said we could,” another cried. But all their oaths and all their din. Couldn’t prevail to get their rag again. While the Freshies ate as in heavy slumber, A peerless man of the ’15 number 1 lad shinned the j ole and cut the ro| e. He now disappeared and with him their hope. The ’16 boys collected and yelled Selected a child the Prexy to tell. But when he came through it was all too late; The flag was mislaid — till a later date. Of course it was right for the Freshmen boys To hang out their rag and make lots of noise ; But likewise ' twas right for the ’15 men To take their flag, forever. Amen. THE 19 15 GRIST 119 Esty shows Prof. Tyler a new chemistry equation: — K + I+2S = KISS. Caution : — (To be performed in the dark). This is the result of the action of one woman’s attention to an unsuspecting and innocent senior. We won ' t get personal, but everyone may look at Miss Marion York of Pawtucket. Hall in History 1 : — “Benedict Arnold died in the state of melancholy.” Prof. Churchill: — “No, that isn’t one of the United States, although the state of matrimony is.” Prof. Smith : — “I have an examination paper here with no name on it.” Inquisitive Individual: — “What is the mark on it?” Prof. Smith : — “A very good one.” Everybody : — “It’s mine.” Question raised in a Biology Class: “Does a cat ' s hairs on her upper lip have the same functions as a man’s moustache?” Joe Soonc., working in Chem. Lab., get a mouth full of corrosive sublimate through a pipette by mistake and asks what shall he do. Lennox : — ‘Better say your prayers.” Nordquist: — “The word ‘Babel’ is unfamiliar to some in the class. Prof. Boardman : — “That depends on a person’s knowledge of the bible.” Prof. Boardman : — “What is the history of the formation of a habit ?” Joe Hudson : — “The thing we discussed yesterday.” Barney in Zoo. VIII.: — “You say that hair is dead tissue. How is it that it stays with you?” Prof. Barlow (after some reflection on himself and the inquisitor) : — “Well, it doesn ' t always, does it?” Prof. Boardman in Edu. IV. :— “For what are the Swiss noted?” Class:— “CHEESE. " Prof. Churchill in History I.: — “What have you selected for historical reading, collateral with your history course?” Joe Nichols: — “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” Overheard at a card table: — “Look out, Mr. Perry, they’re looking at your hand.” Mr. Perry: — “I don’t see how they can see the cards, I can’t. Circumference, 92 inches. Prof, of History : — “Why weren’t you present at the test, Mr. Parker, last Tuesday?” Mr. Parker: — “I had a cold and wet my feet.” Prof, of History: — “Cold feet again, eh?” A worthy displayal of a Freshman’s brains, to wit, Wisbey, to Miss Lucy Comins Tucker: — “I suppose this play — The Girls of 1776 — makes you think of your girlhood days, doesn’t it?” There is a question as to whether Miss Tucker smiled or not. 120 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE Debating on the immigration subject, Janson says: — “If an immigrant fails to have this certain amount of money and also a perfect health record, what do they do with him?” Conyers :■ — “Shoot ’em.” Prof. Churchill to Conyers: — “How did you get in?” After Prof. Smith has worked an hour and filled the blackboard with the interactions of numeric organic compounds, Mr. Hawkins coolly inquires: — “So that is the beauty of organic chemistry?” Snatched from the bulletin board : “Prof. Churchill : — A package in room 3, Davis Hall, for you may be obtained by singing for it at the office. " Signed, Miss Burdick. Sophomore to Prof. Cloke in Physics Class discussion of x-ray : — “Is it pos- sible to see through one’s head with the x-ray?” Prof. Cloke: — “It would be hard to see through some of yours, I fear.” A sign on the bulletin board announces the loss of an illumination book. Tubby : — “Probably it has gone out now and you will never find it.” Prof. Barlow in physiology class: — “Hallucination is demonstrated when a person sees strange, wild beasts crawling about on the walls of his bedroom. (Perhaps Bugs has visited East Hall). Boulester appears in class all dolled out as for his wedding, with a nice, neat, nobbish brown suit on. Tack Glynn, calling from the gallery, “Say Doc, where was the fire?” Pa Webster as he notices the high-browed wit of the 1913 class puzzling over a bridge drawing : — “Well, Bates, you seem to be between the devil and the deep sea.” Bates, glancing up, as though intelligent, from his work and straightening his glasses, remarks : — “I hardly see the sea, Professor.” The following is to show that females are not all lacking in wit. Says Boob to the coquettish co-ed called Buff, who, by the way, was suffering from a smoky lamp: — “Hey, Buff, your eye must have been pretty hot when you got that shiner.” Miss Randall, anticipating the jocular Mr. Hanlin: — “Yes, it was in(flame)d.” Jackowitz, the night before the final Physics exam. : — “Here it is ten o’clock and I ' ve only got half of the chapter on sound written on this paper.” (Faculty will kindly not read this paragraph ) . Jubilant Student: — “Look at the hairpin I found on the walk.” Chef: — “How did you (hair-pin) happen to find it.” Baxter mets the diminutive Doctor Hunter in the corridor of Davis Hall. The corpulent joker speaks: — “I understand you have a new course this semester, Doc.” THE 1915 GRIST 121 Doc.: — “Not that I know of. What did you hear?” People say it is Gym (Jim). Then the innocent one blushed. One of Dickie’s natural ones: — “If anyone whose name I have called is not here, will he kindly raise his hand?” Prexy’s idea of the newest dances — a cross between a gallop and a waddle. Senior, T5: — “How is it, Prof., that alcohol makes one’s head go around?” Prof. Barlow: — “You ought to know.” Words of the everlasting Shanahan : A sad case — a rack of empties. Mili.ER. 15, speaking of the mechanism of a telephone transmitter, asks if it is possible to use granulated sugar in place of carbon granules generally used. Prof. Dickinson : — “Not unless you wanted to talk very sweetly.” Student addressing Prof. Churchill in argumentation : — “Are all bartenders necessarily bad characters?” Prof. C. : — “Well, I know of a copule who are.” Student: — “Well, you know of a couple more who aren ' t, don’t you?” Prof. Churchill: — “Mr. McIntosh, what is personal magnetism?” Mac: — “I believe that that is something we do not all possess.” Dr. Leighton (in Chemistry III) : — “When your neighbors begin to cough and cuss, you ' ll know that your vapors are sulphuric.” Prof. Churchill (in History I): — “Where did the Scotch-Irish come from ?” Lloyd (after considerable thought) : — “They came from somewhere between Scotland and Ireland.” Mr. Hunter, on receiving a pamphlet on the famous breed of hens, the Leg- horn. says it is a new kind of instrument that a music firm wishes him to try out in the college orchestra. Overheard in the physiology class: “The stomach is a sort of bag-shaped affair that you carry your lunch in. It looks like a big sausage.” Prof. Barlow (examining a skull) : “This individual would have suffered terribly from this decaying wisdom tooth, had he continued to live.” “Good thing he died,” from the rear. Capt. Davis (to Company C) : — “Everybody is out of step but Edmonds.” Mr. Geo. M. Lewis carries around a small vial of absolute alcohol, which he spasmodically takes whiffs of. He claims that it wakes him up. He doesn’t need it, does he? Overheard in History 1 : — -“What other features are necessary besides masts in shipbuilding ?” Hope, ’16: — “Rubber tires.” Lloyd (speaking of the manufacturers of the early colonies) : — “It is said that the soldiers wore homespun union suits.” Miss Fleagle goes to Providence on shopping trip. Her excuse to Prof. Boardman : — “Providence called and I went.” 122 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE A Gentleman (to Rev. Richard Weston) : — “I think I need a shave, Dick. " Dick : — “Well, you ought to be put in a class with Edison and Columbus. You have discovered something.” Mr. Noyes: — “I think I ' ll take a trip down to Texas before long. " Baxter: — “So I’m not the only one after a steer, after all.” Prof. Cooley : — “Have you read Lamh ' s tales.” Anderson, ’ 17 : — “I never saw any red ones. Prof.” Anderson, ' 17 , sits with his feet on a chair in Prof. Churchill’s English clas.,. Prof. C. : — “There is a large shadow on the floor in the back of the room. Would you mind seeing what it is. " Anderson gets up and looks around, whereupon Prof. C. tells him, “You had better sit down now I guess, it was the shadow of your feet. " Jackowitz, after dissecting a cat ' s nervous system, gets into an argument with Hunter and says: — " I ' ll bet you a dime that ' s a nerve. If you ' re any kind of a sport you’ll take me up.” Handsome offers the reason: — “It isn’t a case of sporting blood, it’s simply a case of lack of funds.” Prof. Adams (approaching Weston finds him chewing the filthy weed): — “Are you chewing that again, Weston ?” Weston : — " Yes sir, do you want a chew ?” On seeing Prexie’s dog Brownie hobble on three legs. Bill Lewis claims that the dog is a mathematician since he puts down 3 and carries 1. If this was original, this near joke would be good. Prof. Boardman (in Psy and Ed. IV.) : — “How could a Latin teacher make his lessons interesting?” A Lover of Brevity: — “M ake ’em short.” Dr. Hadley (in lecture on Water Bacteriology) : — “It is said that the hogs of a certain fanner on the plains were killed from an infection of hog cholera, coming from the sewerage of the College. I don’t care to cast any suspicion on the student body here, but the conditions do look questionable.” Jackowitz advises the Town Council that they had better put in a new road between Wakefield and Kingston, as he looks forward to a hard winter. Hunter (in Zoo VIII) : — “Mr. Lewis is in had spirits this morning.” Jackowitz: — " Yes, he has been drinking water since yesterday afternoon.” Jones (inviting Boulester to C. E. social) : — “Piles of fun — Gee Whiz Hang it all, you ought to come.” Boulester : — “Scat.” Reuben Hall, T 7, explains how easy it is to become engaged. “I met a girl up in Barnstable, Mass., and we took a walk up and down the main street, finally stopping in front of the window of a large department store. I noticed the girl was eyeing a large crystal set in a ring which was resting THE 1915 GRIST 123 in the window, so we walked in and I had her try on a few. When wc found one that fit and the clerk told us that it was a genuine Cape Cod solitaire, I took a five spot out of my pocket, bought the ring, placed it on her fourth finger, and honest, fellows, I’m engaged. I had to walk home that night, though.” Poor girl, accept our blessing. Prof, (in English): — “Who was Elbert Hubbard?” Stack Whisper (from McIntosh) : — “A nut.” It’s rumored that the inspector of buildings used three days in locating the members of an egg-throwing expedition and then three minutes immediately [ afterward in bailing them out. The heart of T. C. is still the biggest thing on the campus. Kirk, half an hour late to class, leaves his admission, a nickel’s worth of candy, on Tip’s desk with the enlightenment that a Mr. Davis is the donor. Prof. T. inquires if he is being kidded, and eats the candy. Prof. Churchill: — “Who were those who were conspicuous by their ab- sence at the Signing of the Declaration of Independence?” Staoe Whisper: — “T. C. and Lucy.” Freshman Durfee makes an appointment with Priday Rawdon to receive his first professional haircut. Priday says: — “Come around on Sunday.” The following is a quotation of the once famous Romeo Raoul Martel to Homer Christian and Devil Rowell: — “What you want me to do is to inject a little predigested knowledge into your coco.” “Hap” Smith, ' 08, writes the Providence Alumni Club’s recruiting com- mittee that he wouldn’t be caught dead joining the organization and signs “Biff” Easterbrook’s, ' ll, name to it. At this time “Biff’ is still buying ammunition. It is rumored that “Walt” Knowles, ' 09, is a building trick. He builds bridges by day (N. Y., N. H. H.), and “Full Houses” by night — “One please.” Huh? Our Asst. Prexy receives a most cordial invitation to join the United States Navy. She is getting to be one of the boys. Prof. Miles: — “W hy aren’t you on time to class?” “Doc”: — “I was eating a piece of pie.” Prof. M.: — “Where is the pie?” “Doc”: — “I’ve got it with me.” Prof. M. : — “Where is it?” “Doc”: — “Under my belt.” Prof. M.: — " Well that is selfishness. Why didn ' t you bring me a piece?” Miss Merrow (to her Freshman Botanists) : — “I wish you wouldn’t use hard pencils to write your notes with, for it is difficult to read them, as I am an old lady, and Browning is fast becoming one.” 124 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE MISTAKES OF A HONEYMOON A white haired prof. With travelling mania. His sweet, young wife In old Pennsylvania. A request to sign The hotel register From an impudent clerk Just one who could pester. A prompt compliance With this request. A sigh of relief His troubles at rest. But alas, alas, The mistake of his life. He signed his name Without that of his wife. An interrogation Put forth by the clerk, A childish prank In his countenance lurked. But these are his words — (Perhaps I hadn’t oughter), “Am I mistaken? Will you sign for vour daughter?” THE 1915 GRIST 125 Rhode Island State College Mandolin Club President Frank Howard Baxter Vice President Frank H. Baxter Secretary F. Howard Baxter Treasurer F. H. Baxter Soloist — Frank Baxter First, Ninth and Sixteenth Mandolins — “Pot” Baxter ALL FOOL’S DAY IN KINGSTON With their anxious hopes afleeting, The daintiest of all the chef’s fine morsels sweet. The poor Freshmen they were eating With their co-ed’s e’er so pretty And their speakers ne’er so witty ’Twas a chance that would have been sure hard to be:. The Sophomores knew it And they certainly went to it Looking forward to enjoy the luscious feast. The f reshies still kept mocking. While the windows they were locking, But the Sophomores were not moved in the least. For their great and wonderful knowledge Taught them easily to demolish Things that seemed most impenetrable indeed. The electric connections Were cut into two sections At the time of the tungstens greatest need. And now each told a ditty With the help of spermaceti, Which happened to be in the kitchen, just by chance. It was hard to tell at sight Even the dark meat from the white. Without more than any ordinary glance. The banquet having finished. And their appetites diminished. The hellians started for the “Policemen’s” slaughter. ‘Twas the latters’ cruel luck To stand in line for a “duck” But remember ’twas the purest kind of water. Toward the village next they started And the church bell rope they knotted Resulting in the midnight fire alarm. With fire bells aclanging And skeletons adangling One would think that they were doing mighty harm. But by far the l est event Was by sorrow fnl Percy lent When on bicycle he chased an erring student. Had it not been for his sprocket, A culprit in the docket Would have heard the verdict and to jail been sent. MORAL Now if officers are creeping When in bed they should be sleeping, Dreaming of a land where women ne’er shall vote, It certainly behooves them. If the students must amuse them To be ready to grow horns and be the " goat.” ADVERTISEMENTS Calendar MARCH 1. Comes in very peaceably, in fact we think that she is apeing after April — Stop. 2.

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.
