Registration complet- ed, we proceeded to look each other over, and one and all came to the conclusion that here was a class that was destined to leave its mark on Rhode Island. That we had football material was at once apparent, and the appearance of our co-eds was a matter of pride to every male member of the class. The Sophomores, according to the usual custom, at once decided that we must be shown how small we really were, but in the events that followed, the ability of the 19 lb class to look after its members was amply demonstrated. Some of the, at that time Sophomores, no doubt still remember the little visit paid to Room 44. 19 wm mm ft: XIX In the first track meet we suffered defeat at the hands (or rather the feet) of the 1915 class, but in football we came back strong, and when the final whistle blew, the score stood 6-0 in our favor. For the first time in the history of the col- lege the Sophs had been defeated by the Freshmen. As had teen agreed upon, this gave us the right to fly our class flag from the pole for twenty-four hours. The next day, a bold Sophomore by an exhibition of reckless dare-deviltry, never before surpassed or equalled, pulled down the flag while no one was around and made off with it. Altho excitement ran high for some time, and several Sophs were rather roughly handled, the flag was never recovered. In baseball we were also defeated by T5. The following year we again renewed old traditions by defeating the entering Freshmen in both track and football. In basketball and baseball, however, they were too strong for us, and our teams went down to defeat. Since becoming Juniors, our main endeavor has been to avoid the automatic ejector. Some, we regret to say, have failed to do this and others only by the des- perate expedient of changing courses or joining 1917. For the most part, however, we are “getting by” and expect to be there strong at the finish in 1916. 20 21 ffeceosi Daniel Gaskell Aldrich, P I K Georgia ville, R. I. “Danny” “Skunk” “Funnyface” Agriculture Class Football (2); Stock Judging Team (2); Glee Club (2) (3); Class Debating Team (1) (2); Varsity Debating Team (1); Secretary Debating Society (2); President (3); President Athletic Association (3); Assistant Manager Football (3). The “Skunk” passed a short part of his young life in the West, but being strong for R. I., he now hibernates on Kingston Hill. Since his arrival, the college has lieen raised to a higher plane due to his instructing the Profs on “How we do it at Ames”. The freshman year was spent in manufacturing “Whistles”. This pursuit brought untold correspondence the following summer. Later, his achievements for the “Scotts” indicate his emulation of Robert Bruce. However, Danny is a conscientious worker; and al- though he missed a term, we expect to find his “Funny- Face” with us when the final gong rings. Harold Congdon Anthony, i A ' P Newport, R. I. “Mark” Agriculture Class Basketball (1) (2); Class Baseball (1) (2); Class Track (1) (2); Glee Club (1) (2) (3). Our whistling friend from Newport, although always inclined to be a pest, has much to offset his faults, es- pecially his loud colored ties. Though he is an Aggie, he has high hopes of becoming manager of the College Hof-Brau in which he is now in line for advancement. We, however, cannot pass him by without calling your attention to his high qualities as a soldier, shown by his position of High Private in the rear rank. William Joseph Becker, Jr., 0 X Ridgewood, N. J. “Bill” “Lieut” Mechanical Engineering Secretary Athletic Association (3); Band (3). Stop! Look! Listen! You can well waste a few minutes by scrutinizing this picture. By the “step- by-step” process of reasoning, you can’t go wrong in determining just what this picture portrays. It’s just “Big Bull Becker”, the famous Mexican athlete. Bill rolled in from W. P. I. this year and joined the ranks of the Juniors. It was not long before he joined the Fussers Club and — there is a saying, “The bigger they are the harder they fall”. “Lieut” can always be found doing what a loyal Fusscr should do whenever he isn’t eating or grinding. Happy days, Bill. 22 IIMSUM XK Wesley Crowell Brigham, P I K Pawtucket, R. I. “Wobble” “Brig” Electrical Engineering Manager Class Football (1); Varsity Football (1) (2); Class Basketball (1) (2); Vice-President Athletic Association (2); Beacon Board (1) (2) (3); Soph. Hop Committee (2); 1916 Grist Board (3); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3). Wesley entered here to pursue a course in chemistry, but after a two years chase he gave up the pursuit and changed to electrical. To look at this picture no one would think that it is the same fat person who is usually seen drifting idly ’round the campus in blue sweater, " high waters”, and moccasins, but he is the one. Brig came to us from Pawtucket in 1912 and has been trying to live it down ever since. Brig’s motto es “As we jour- ney through life, let us live by the way”, but “nix” on the cherries. Dorothy Isabelle Burr, 2 T A East Providence, R. I. “Dot” “Dibs” Home Economics Class Vice-President (1). Dot claims Riverside as her present home but we fear that a new port (Newport) will claim her soon. Her chief occupation is watching from any convenient win- dow for a “free man”. Dot is inclined to be musical but the selection which charms her most is a little whistle. What little time Dot has left from this and her studies is claimed by the girls; no fun seeming to be complete without her. Everett Augustus Carleton, 0 X Greenwood, Mass. “Evr” Agriculture Class Football (1) (2). The first stumbling block that “Ev” ran up against was a tongue-tied bell, yet he usually succeeded in find- ing a remedy before it was too late (by the village clock). The second great event in Everett’s college career was his appointment to the honorable position of office boy. As an office boy, he is a success for the fussers. No, he is not a ladies’ man himself, but you can sec him any night, about ten o’clock, prancing toward Davis; he is going to finish some of his office (?) work. 23 MSS Ambrose Royle Chantler, AA Pawtucket, R. I. “Musty” “Brosie” “Casearet” Chemical Engineering Soph. Hop Committee (2). “Brosie” entered high school away back in the dark ages, and in 1912 he decided that he had absorbed all the education that Pawtucket and Woonsocket could afford, so he came to Kingston. In spite of his ridiculous preparatory education he has made good in a scholastic way. “Brosie” is inclined to be somewhat pessimistic of a would-be engineer’s future, and spends hours at a time in trying to find an instance where a chemical engineer has succeeded in life. He is slightly round-shouldered from carrying the burdens of some of his friends. Helena Frances Clarke, 2 T A East Greenwich, R. I. Applied Science Class Secretary ' (3). • You now behold the picture of a most brave and learned person. You’ll admit that any one of our fair co-eds who voluntarily tackles the Chem. option in Applied Science has some courage. However if you ex- pect to obtain much information by loitering in the immediate vicinity you are liable to disappointment. For, if you happen to be a mere male creature, your presence is no t desirable. And also Helena believes in the old theory ' that if you tell everyhodv what you know they will know as much as you do. Nevertheless, all the girls will tell you that when it comes to having a good time, she is one of the bunch. Clarence John Conyers, A A ' k Cranston, R. I. “Jerry” “Clyde’ ’ Agriculture ( lass Football (1) (2); Class Baseball (1); Class t ni (2) ' ars ' y Football (3); Soph. Hop Commit- .lerry arrived from the “Jail Town” in the fall of 1912 and naturally was under suspicion at first. He is a very versatile person. His voice is a rare, ripe tenor, better known as an onion tenor. In the summer he may be seen riding bare-back on one of John D.’s oil wagon horses through the outskirts of Providenee. In the winter he keeps the house warm for his fratcmitv brothers with a heat unit of his own, “The Conyers 1 hermal Unit,” which has a negative value. 24 Gilbert Ralph Cordin, P I K Providence, R. I. “Bert” Chemical Engineering Class Football (1) (2); Beacon Board (1) (2) (3); 1916 Crist Board (3); Assistant Manager Baseball (2); Manager (3). Providence thrust this chubby person upon the world in 1892. Sometime later Providence Tech adopted him and in 1912 R. I. S. C. became his nursery. Yes, you are right. He is funny looking. They could not take a profile picture because they would not have been able to get in the extremity of his breathing ap- paratus. Hairy, you say. He is like that all over. Bert is a clever boy just the same, and also some dancer. “Jimmy” said so. Nevertheless, Bert is quite a chemist, and we are sure that his future will be most pleasant and prosperous. Emilie May Curran, 2 T A Pawtucket, R. I. “Shrimp” Home Economics Secretary Y. W. A. A. (2); President (3); Treasurer Y. W. C. U. (2); Vice-President (3); Northfield Dele- gate (1). “Shrimp” came to us in 1912 from Pawtucket, but it isn’t quite as bad as it sounds for she seems to have overcome that handicap. She has developed into a truly R. I. student who is almost as willing to call Providence “home” as Pawtucket. Her favorite pas- time when not “Napping” between the hours of 4.30- 6.00 is library “work”. We predict for her that in- stead of becoming a Food Bacteriologist (as she says she intends) that she will become a dispenser of food in a private boardin’ (Borden) house. Henry Fales Daniels, 0 X Pawtucket, R. I. “Danny” “Hefty” Civil Engineering Band (2) (3); Corporal (2) (3); Soph. Hop Commit- tee (2). “Danny” is surely a high financier, for if he borrows a nickel he is sure to pay it back one cent at a time; while if it be tobacco, one may as well kiss it good-bye. “Hefty” is known as the original hard guy. He ad- mits it himself. He needed neither overcoat nor hat until he froze his face one morning last winter, but since then his flintyness of structure seems to have dis- appeared. His greatest ambition is to hold the rod for “Pa” Webster. We all wish “Hefty” the best of success in the years to come. 25 Wilfred Ross Easterbrooks, A X A Wakefield, R. I. “Geek” “Easty” Civil Engineering Class Track (1). The reason that this gentleman’s head is so far from his body is on account of the length of his neck. Of this specific part of his gigantic form there has been circulated an astounding story which claims that “Easty” can sit in his home in Wakefield of an evening and stretch his neck down to Wordens Pond, where his fond love receives a resounding smack, and reaches in vain to embrace his poor head as it returns to Wake- field to spend the rest of the evening. Frank Aloysius Faron, A A ' k Woonsocket, R. I. “Dimples” “Frankie” Electrical Engineering Class Baseball (1) (2); Manager (1); Class Track (1) (2); Class Basketball (1); Varsity Track Squad (1); Polygon (3); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3). One day in June, 1912, the principal of Woonsocket High clapped Frank A. Faron on the shoulder and with tears in his eyes said, “I cannot teach you anything more.” Having visions of future triumphs in electri- cal engineering, Frankie packed his valise and gently swooped down upon the peaceful village of Kingston. Mastering the most difficult propositions in calculus, chemistry, and nature study, Frankie has soared up the scholastic ladder with fond hopes of graduating in 1916. He certainly lives up to his motto: — “Burn the midnight oil, boys, “And keep from maidens coy.” Ernest George Field, A X A Providence, R. I. “Commodore” Mechanical Engineering Secretary Y. M. C. A. (1); Treasurer (2); Soph. Hop Committee (2) ; President Rifle Club (3) ; Corporal (2); First Sergeant (3). Ladies and gentlemen, we have here a source of in- formation which makes the Encyclopedia Brittanica look like a primary school reader. If there is anything Ernest doesn’t know about, from sewing on a button to designing a bridge, we have yet to find it out. The only thing he can’t explain is just why he is wasting his time here, instructing the profs. That the abilities of this great man are not limited to beanwork is shown by the fact that he was unanimously elected Commo- dore of the R. I. S. C. Navy in his freshman year. 26 iCfaC (6R3SC XIX Dean Blenus Fraser, 0 X Brockton, Mass. “Cherub” “Whisk-broom” Civil Engineering Class Secretary (1) (2); President (3); Class Base- ball (1) (2); Class Track (2); Kingston Prize Essay (2); Class Debating Team (2); Vice-President Debat- ing Society (3); Varsity Debating Team (3); Assistant Manager Baseball (3); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); 1916 Grist Board (3); Rifle Team (3); Polygon (3). Finding the cares of business out of his line, “Cherub” decided to come to the large city of Kingston and lie- come a civil engineer. Since September of 1912, fame and fortune have favored the promising youngster and he now bids fair to outshine the great Goethals. Even tho’ his cares are many, Whisk-broom, the clean-up kid, finds much time to spend in Davis Hall. Wandering hence from thence one winter’s day, the illustrious Fraser made his most famous discovery — that you can go rowing on the ice. Thomas William Freeman, P I K Newport, R. I. “Blondy” “Tom” Civil Engineering Glee Club (1) (2) (3); Orchestra (1) (2) (3); Assistant Leader (2); Manager (3); Varsity Basketball (1); Class Baseball (1) (2); Varsity Football (2); Corporal (2); First Sergeant (3). This specimen with the golden locks and the win- some smile, the Venus like form etc., etc., is our “Blonde Swede”. His works on “Information and Advice to the Lovelorn” yet unpublished, have sealed his future success. Tom sings and plays with a charm. The charm is so touching that one must not linger in its presence lest he lose his nerves. Tom’s heart Burr(ns) for just one little “Dot” and she “Is-a-belle.” Ralph Earl Glasheen, 0 X Brockton, Mass. “Gus” Civil Engineering Class Track (1); Class Basketball (2); Class Foot- ball (1) (2); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); Editor-m- Chief 1916 Grist (3). Behold, fellow class-mates, the light and choicest spirit of this our Grist Board, possessing a voice that might be the envy of Jove, a gait and facial expression copied from Apollo, and a gift of gab that would make Socrates back water. . Although Gus’ greatest love is for his pipe, his hobby was women. However, one of the fair residents of Davis Hall now claims all his attentions, and we predict a suc- cessful career for Gus as a civil engineer in a town by the sea. 27 6L Franklin Perry Goddard, 0 X Newport, R. I. “Rep” Electrical Engineering Corporal (2); Second Lieutenant (3). Tradition tells us that Franklin came to us in the fall of 1911 from Newport. How that secluded city ever gets along without him during the winter we are not prepared to state. As a shuffler of the paste-boards and a consumer of the vile weed he has no rival. His common boast is that he has left more shoe leather on the road to Peacedale than any other man in college. Clinton Dexter Hawkins, P I K Pawtucket, R. I. " Hawky” “Little Eva” Chemical Engineering Manager Class Basketball (2); Glee Club (1) (2); Assistant Leader (3); Orchestra (1) (2); Corporal Band (2). “Hawky” is a developed culture of bacteria from the sediment of the Blackstone River. He has hope (Hope) for success with his new play entitled “Love’s Reward” or “The Draw ' -String Basket " . It portrays two love-sick men who sent goodies and love letters to two captured maidens in a girls ' dormitory. " Hawky” is an honor student in “Bumming the Makings” and “Fussing”. To most of those who know him — thev don’t appreciate him. Roswell Woodward Henninger, P I K Williamsport, Pa. “Heinie” “Coca” “Banty” Agriculture Class President (1); Class Basketball ( 1 ) ; Class Base- ball (1) (2); Varsity Football (1) (2); Corporal (3). The famous “Heinie” blew in from illiamsport, Pa., in the fall of 1912 and has been blowing ever since. Because of " Banty’s” high school rep and his lack of wearing apparel he was given a football suit upon his arrival at R. I. S. C. This showing up his form to ad- vantage, he was allowed to act as mascot for two years. “Coca will without doubt make a successful poultry man. He has had varied experiences as a “chicken fancier , gaining his reputation along this line nt Y ick- ford, N akcneld, Providence, and last of all, Pcnnsyl- vania. 28 6L wm- €k€ (SUM James Murray Henry, P I K Stonington, Conn. “Mul” “Mary” Mechanical Engineering Manager Class Basketball (1); Class Baseball (1) (2); Assistant Manager Football (2); Manager (3); Student Council (2) (3); Polygon (3); Class Treasurer (2); Corporal (2); First Sergeant (3); 1916 Grist Board (3). When Mul first arrived in Kingston he was much im- pressed by its size, for you must know that he lived in Stonington all his life. This didn’t hinder him in his studies and forthwith he started to “clean up”. He soon found that he didn’t have eno ugh on his mind, so he proceeded to be elected football manager and took over the cares and trials of that precarious job. Our fair co-eds have had few charms for Mul, but a certain school teacher has caused him to forget his worries occasionally and make tracks for Wakefield. We wish you success, Mul. Edwin Douglas Hill, B 4 Providence, R. I. “Doug” Agriculture Glee Club (1) (2); Beacon Board (2) (3); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Corporal (3). It is said that every time Doug visits the dairy barn, he first sends in his card, and then after donning rubber gloves proceeds to extract the lactial fluid from the female of the bovine species. While in college, Hill’s time is evenly divided between various card games and Davis Hall. Upon leaving Kingston, Doug in- tends to practice scientific agriculture in the suburbs of Usquepaugh. Great success is predicted for this exponent of “Gentlemanly Agriculture” who, while here, has shown marked ability in the use of a certain kind of fertilizer. Leonard Stanley Holley, B l Wakefield, R. I. “Len” Agriculture Class Football (1) (2); Assistant Business Manager Nona Dramatic Club (2); Business Manager (3); Corporal (3). “Len” was born in the suburbs of the city of Wake- field during the year 1894. In high school, he soon became famous for his ability to create disturbances, and his success at winning the admiration and affec- tion of all the girls. But his career in the last men- tioned attainment was short, for he was captured and subjugated by one of the fair ones of his own class within the first year. And he has never been able to escape from this captivity, although she allows him to attend R. 1. S. C. five days out of seven, as a reward for good conduct. 29 IM «iM li ixix Earl Joseph Hope, A A ' P Woonsocket, R. I. “O P” Civil Engineering Class Track (1) (2); Varsity Track Squad (2); Tennis Champion (1) (2); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Corporal (3). Although severely handicapped by the fact that he hails from “Little Canada”, the illustrious youth, whose beaming countenance you see before you, came to R. I. with the fond Hope of becoming a civil engineer. Civil — maybe, engineer — never! Earl is some “atleet” too, never even takes off his collar to do six feet in a pole vault. We often wondered why he refused to take off his collar. Perhaps it is a sign of a “rough-neck”. Outside of that, he’s all right. Annie Sarah Hoxsie, 2 T A Canonchet, R. I. “Ann Hawks” Home Economics Treasurer Y. W. A. A. (1); Vice-President (3); Dele- gate, Silver Bay (2); Delegate, New England Hygiene Conference (2). A es, “Ann Hawks” is as healthy as she looks, although she docs not care to be reminded of the fact too often. We can’t help but notice her increasing attraction for Kingston “Hill”, which is certainly a radical change from her first impressions, as every Friday was put to good use. Nature studies attract Annie, a fact which is well proven by her frequent walks to Wolf Rocks. Annie is an efficient student in Domestic Science, which talent she practices Friday evenings. The re- sults of her efforts are fully appreciated although her serving faculties may not be. Robert Charles Kirk, A A$ Pawtucket, R. I. “Bob” “Calamity” Civil Engineering r, a JJ a , ger P ass ra( ’k (2); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Color Guard (2) (3). “Bob”, the Billy Sunday of the college, was wished on us two years ago. Overcoming a natural bashful- ncss. Bob has developed a fondness for wild-cat theories which always land him into difficulties. Bob is the president of the Literary Club which he founded. This is a debating society with only one subject for debate, namely— “Who can howl the loudest”. He always wins. The embodiment of wisdom, Bob, is destined to be- c ?, me . a lading factor in the engineering world, for atter leaving college he will probably resume his trade. tie is a brick-layer. 30 6L 8M MIM Seth Frederick Hadley Lagerstedt, 0 X Brockton, Mass. “Rabbit” “P. B.” Agriculture Class Football (1) (2); Captain (1); Class Baseball (1) (2); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Corporal (3). “Rabbit”, the hot weather pitcher, arrived from Brockton with a great “rep”, but as we have no weather hot enough, he jumped to the King Fizzaway League. Beside being an “atleets”, Rabbit became a fusser, dancer and social lion in Wakefield. During his junior year he became acquainted with a maiden at the Kings- ton Inn. And although we do not know what his in- tentions might be, we have all become accustomed to seeing him wheeling her back and forth through the village street in a cane chair. Good luck, Rabbit. Lester William Lloyd, 0 X Blandford, Mass. “Pop” “Rollo” Agriculture Class Track (1) (2); Varsity Track Squad (2); Class Football (1); Varsity (2) (3); Vice-President Athletic Association (3). Gentle reader, in this picture you see “Rollo”, the athlete and globe-trotter. No doubt some of you have read of his travels in the book entitled “Rollo in Paris”. This wonderful youth came into prominence at Rhode Island through his banner agency. It is said that he could make money on a rock in the wilderness. Rollo has great hopes of earning his It. I. in track, and as a result has used the road to Wakefield regularly. His chief occupation is to serve the faculty. George Emile Lussier, i A4 1 Woonsocket, R. I. “Piker” “Luke” “Loose” Electrical Engineering Class Basketball (1) (2); Captain (2); Class Base- ball (1); Varsity (2); Class Football (2). George insisted upon eating his Thanksgiving din- ner before he joined us in 1912. Just why he wants to be an engineer is a mystery both to the Profs and to the students. “Loose” naturally turns to literary lines and takes particular pleasure in writing a short book to Elgin, 111., every week. He is quite fond of words, especially “Vivian’ s Eyes”, of which he has made con- siderable study. “Loose” has made good in all ath- letics, and last year was first string ’varsity pitcher. Unless sentenced for murder of the fellow who wakes him ten minutes early for breakfast, he will probably get through in ' 16. 31 Leander Wallace McLeod, 2 N (Brown) Providence, R. I. “Butser” “Carranza” Mechanical Engineering Varsity Football (2) (3); Varsity Baseball (2). Do not be alarmed, gentle reader, this is not Carranza the revolutionist. On the contrary, this young man is of a peaceful nature, having been very effectually tamed and subjugated by the disciplinarians of Brown. During a lull in the hostilities there, “Carranza” made a successful retreat to Kingston and joined the class of 1916. “Butser” has never exhibited a very pro- nounced desire for studying, but manages in some mysterious way to stay with the crowd. His forte (?) is English 4. Henry Edmond Medbery, AA$ East Providence, R. I. “Hy” “Huckleberry” Applied Science Class Football (1) (2); Varsity Debating Team (1); Treasurer Debating Society (2) (3); Glee Club (1) (2) (3); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Class Treasurer (3); Beacon Board (2) (3). After being tamed at East Providence for four years, “Med” was sent here for further confinement. His persistency in football is to be admired as he is famous for his ’varsity shoulders and defeat (de-feet). If his growth had not gone to his feet he might have been a giant. He is also the pride of Company B and hopes to be a corporal some day. Nevertheless he is a good student and feels confident every time he takes an exam. Here’s hoping he makes good as a scientist, which voca- tion he chose after finding the Aggie course too easy for Etta Elizabeth Meears Norwood, Mass. “Bess” “Paul Revere” Home Economics 1914 Class Secretary (1): Literary Society (1); 1914 Basketball Team (1); Dramatic Club (2) (3); Beacon Board (2) (3). Bess entered with the class of 1914 but after the first year she decided to wait for the class of 1916. This was one of the many times when Bess showed her good sense. Of the many (?) songsters of Davis Hall, she is one of the best. Bess is a frequent visitor at West Kingston. We don’t know why, but we often notice that in the dining hall another chair is vacant at the same time. She likes to wear a “Red” “Cloke” to “Keith’s” on “Field” Day. Her strong point is her many brothers (?). 32 Charles Irving Milnes, B f Providence, R. I. “Cy” Chemical Engineering Class Football (1) (2); Varsity Football (3); Class Vice-President (3); Corporal (3). Cy, after preparing at Classical, came to R. 1. and due to his natural quietness and the overshadowing brilliancy of H S Ex “16”, combined with a little graft on the part of the railroad company, this nebula did not show his manly proportions until his second year. Now he can be found at any time in the Chem. Lab. where he finds much pleasure in painting the ceiling with H 2 S0 4 while trying to perform a Kjehdahl de- termination. Cy never rough-houses nor uses profane language, and since his affections are elsewhere, Davis Hail has no attractions for him (? ? ?). Theodore Andrew Palmer, B l Hope Valley, R. I. “Ted” Agriculture Class Football (2) (3); Class Track (1) (2); Varsity Track (1) (2); Corporal (3); President 1. P. A. (3); Stock Judging Team (2). Theodore Palmer, the perfect man, the man of bul- lock strength! Can you even imagine another person who was never beaten at chopping wood, wrestling, milking, or anything else you could bring up? As a junior he won renown on Bill Lewis’ scrub team by working those famous slaughter plays entitled “Pal- mer Take the Ball”. In East Hall, to start a rough- house and then help the monitor quench it, was his favorite pastime. Ted has also been a frequent visitor at Davis Hall. Perhaps his religion led him there. Clarence Howard Parker, 0 X Brockton, Mass. “Park” “Shorty” Mechanical Engineering Glee Club (1) (2) (3); Assistant Manager Track (2); Manager (3); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3). Clarence arrived in Kingston along with several other members of the Brockton Crew. That he is still loyal to his old home town is shown by the fact that so far neither Wakefield nor Davis Hall have been able to claim any serious attention from him. During the summer vacations canoeing is his favorite pastime and — but never mind, we won’t mention it here. We ex- pect to see him some day manufacturing the then famous Parker four-cylinder motor-cycle motor, the model of which, except for a few minor details, is already com- pleted. 33 Bertha Adelaide Randall, 2 T A Providence, R. I. “Buff” Home Economics Soph. Hop Committee (2); Delegate, New England Hygiene Conference (2); 1916 Grist Board (It). Cheerful, always good-natured, a friend of everyone, is " Buff”. Bertha is the speed artist of the campus, her best record being twenty minutes between Science and Davis. There isn’t a soul on the campus that could say that they didn’t have at least a speaking acquaintance with " Buff”. When a good time is com- ing, " Buff” is there strong, furnishing her ever cheerful presence as well as the makings of a feed. “When studies interfere with pleasure, give up the studies,” says Buff; but though she follows this motto, her record does not show it. Phineas Munsell Randall, P I K Westerly, R. I. “Phinncy” Electrical Engineering Class Treasurer (1); Class Football (1) (2); Class Baseball (1) (2); Glee Club (1) (2) (3); Secretary Electrical Engineering Society (2) (3); Quartet (2); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); Varsity Football (3). Here we have “Phinney” late of Westerly, who has accomplished the above stunts since he landed in our midst in 1912. Phinney immediately acquired a pull with the belle (bell) and was the man of the hour for a year. He always was a shady fellow, and during his Sophomore year spent his nights prowling about the campus, “watching” while others slept. One of his ambitions not yet accomplished is to form a real head out of Westerly granite. After graduation Phinney will either go to work or teach in Pratt Institute. Ernest Elmer Redkern, 0 X Woonsocket, R. I. “Red” “Kicky” Chemical Engineering Class Track (1) (2); Manager (1); Captain (2); Varsity Track Squad (2); Class Football (1); Manager (2) ; Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); Beacon Board (2); Managing Editor (3); Business Manager Student Handl ook (3); Secretary-Treasurer Student Council (3) ; Business Manager 1916 Grist (3). A full account of the life and works of this remarkable personage would occupy about ten volumes. Of his success in business and high finance it is enough for us to say that he has his mail addressed to “The Manager of Rhode Island State College”. Our eminent chemical authority, “Honk”, will testify to " Red’s” genius as a gas manufacturer. He admits himself that he’s some athlete. " Kicky” finds his greatest joy in expounding upon the things which appeal most to him; namely, being rich, getting married, and committing suicide. 34 Homer Ransom Rowell Groveland, Mass. “Handsome” “Lady” Agriculture Rifle Team (1); Scholastic Honors (1) ; Stock Judging Team (3). “Lady” Rowell, “Queen of the Highbinders " ! Here she is. While not engaged in the active and energetic work of her sewing society, the “Lady” is out fighting for prohibition. We often believe that this latter en- thusiasm is wholly hypocritical, even though the Pro- hibition Club made her its reporter. The “Lady” will take up agriculture as a future pur- suit, and we hope that Prof. Adams will be more careful hereafter about speaking too harshly to her. Charles Edward Seifert, A A Chcpachct, R. I. “Charley” “Cy” Electrical Engineering Varsity Baseball (1) (2); Varsity Football (2); Scho- lastic Honors (1) (2); Class Football (1); Class President (2); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Treasurer Electrical Engineering Society (3) ; 1916 Grist Board (3); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3). This tall bone-yard in human form came to us from the w ' ilderness of Chepachet, a place that Charles is trying hard to have put on the map. “Cy” has fond hopes of becoming an electrical engineer for the sole pur- pose of being a motorman on a certain country car line. Although Cy has won high honors as a “woman chaser” and “heart breaker”, he has also won his laurels as a great baseball player, being one of Rhode Island’s re- liable (?) pinch hitters (Batting average .001%) Carleton Webb Short, B East Providence, R. I. “Carl” “Shortie” Chemical Engineering Scholastic Honors (1); Class Football (2); Polygon (3). East Providence heaved a sigh of relief when “Shortie” matriculated at Kingston in 1912. “Solitary confine- ment” in East Providence caused him to reform and win Freshman honors. He soon tired and began his rest. His delicate constitution and affinity for breaking apparatus has made him fear going to class too often. Although overawed by the imposing solemnity of the campus, he feels (W)right at home in Wakefield. His downfall must be attributed to Williamson and Usque- paugh. 35 |i M (fiRiSC XK Kenneth Matteson Slocum, 0 X Central Falls, R. I. “Sloe” Civil Engineering Class Baseball (1); Glee Club (2) (3); Corporal (3); ThisT curly- haired boy drifted into Kingston with the rest of the gang, believing the one square mile of the big city not quite large enough to contain both he and his wonderful voice. Sloe’s main ambition in life is to become a bona-fide civil and build a real railroad between Central and Saylesville; to what purpose he intends to put it is beyond us. Incidentally, Sloe can invent more ways of having a good time than can any six ordinary mortals. Harold Burlen Smith, A A ' I ' Brockton, Mass. “Actor” “Smithy” Applied Science Dramatic Club (2) (3); Vice-President (3). “Smithy” came to us from the “Shoe City” fully resolved to become a noted engineer, but like many others, decided that he was better fitted to become a scientist and hence changed his course. During his sophomore year he contracted the W ake- field habit, and on more than one occasion, while “everything was dark”, he has been seen plodding to- ward his Lachymal Palace above the fields where the dandelions grow profusely. He is a good actor, how- ever, and made a name for himself in “Alabama”, where his chief delight was in catching frogs. Thomas Francis Victory Warren, R. I. “Onto” “Vic” “Doctor” Electrical Engineering Class Football (2); Class Debating Team (2); Cor- poral (3). Thomas Carlyle Huxley Victory, an exponent of Huxley and Keystone Comedies, arrived from Warren a quiet retiring little man, but college has added to him wonderfully so that now he even wears a pair of tortoise shell glasses. “Onto” uses his think tank in classes with as much ease as he does at the “Frog” whist parties in his own town. At “indoor sports” he is an all round athlete. In love he is no laggard and draws no lines as to race, creed or color. 3(i €k€ W XK Earl Walmsley, 0 X Anthony, R. I. “Duke” “Claud” Chemical Engineering Class Baseball (1) (2); Class Track (2); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); 1916 Grist Board (3). It must have been a busy day in Quidnick when “Duke” left to enroll at Rhode Island in the easy course of Chem. Engineering. Since then he often complains of the course being too easy, and wonders if he will ever be able to earn money enough to support — well, he doesn’t say it, but we have all seen her. That “Claud” is an especially good student was shown when “Pete” flunked him in Forge. Nevertheless, some day we will hear of Earl at the head of some fertilizer estab- lishment, even if he does knock the Aggies. Vincent Case Young, 0 X Bristol, R. I. “John Hoong” Mechanical Engineering Class Track (1); Class Basketball (1) (2); Rifle Team (1); Band (2); Corporal (3); Class Vice- President (2); Varsity Basketball (1). Wakefield is a long walk and the Pier still further, but this doesn’t bother “Hoong” as he travels in his Ford by (K)night. Vincent is second only to Herreshoff, and if he lives up to our expectations he will build a cat-boat in which to tour the world with a pipe and a “Popular” as com- panions. He is one of our best barometers on the cam- pus; an absence from breakfast indicates a storm. It storms often. We all wish him a successful career as a mechanical engineer. 37 WM mM wm XIX Phantom l oll Roland Gould Albro Peacedale Kenneth Allen Pawtucket Walker Edmands Babbitt Spencer, Mass.

B. There has long existed a vague idea that Sophomore Classes have a tendency toward class egotism; i. e., an enlargement of the bean. Perish the thought, gentle reader. What could be more modest and unassuming than the following bu dis- course. Commencement of 1914 and the following summer vacation interrupted, for a few months, the well known achievements of the Class of 1917. Besides the victories over 1916, in basketball and baseball, which went to show 1917’s superior abilities, the great representation of this class in ’varsity football, baseball, track, and in every other college activity marked 1917 as the coming class. Then, at the opening of the present college year, 1917 returned and at once began to show that the true Rhode Island blue was stamped indelibly in every man. The wonderful contribution of ’varsity football material by the Sophomore Class served only to clinch 1917’s fame. Indeed, so well was the superiority of the Sophomores established, that even their traditional class antagonists refused to dispute the fact. Apparently, they considered their gore too precious to be used even in annointing their betters. However, they must not be judged too harshly, for they are, it must be remembered, the ardent followers of him who so valiantly did say “Discretion is the better part of valor”. The unconquerable spirit of 1917 has continued, is now in full swing, and will not be extinguished until the year 1917 when each man of the class will go out in the world and fight, individually, to better himself and one of his best friends Rhode Island. 41 ®lje Class of 1017 feonorarp fttember Professor George Robert Cobb Officers Frank Elmer Greenhalgh President Elizabeth Hope Brown Vice-President James Hugh Williamson Secretary William Norman Fritsch Treasurer Class l o l Arnold Willard Ames, 0 X Westerly John Gordon Anderson Westerly Henry Harold Barrows New Haven, Vt.

Therefor, we arrived. 1918, since its arrival and organization, has been one of the shining lights of the college. In the fall we played several aggressive games of baseball against the upper classes. These few games of baseball, although won by the other teams, so demonstrated to our traditional enemies, the Sophs, our athletic ability that they immediately started their “political machine” and arranged to have the annual Fresh-Soph football match cancelled. However, try as they might, they could not dodge the fall track meet. 1918 upheld her “rep” and crushed the dignity of 1917 in this event to the delightful time of 07-40. In honor, we must admit of two defeats at basketball, but of course accidents will happen. Socially, the class of 1918 has made a vast stride over its predecessors. It was welcomed (?) to the college by several exciting receptions and has in return perpetrated an informal dance nearly every week. Looking into the future, we can see nothing but success for the class of 1918 whose high standing we shall strive earnestly to maintain. 45 ®lje Class of 1918 J onornrp fflemfacr Professor Lester Wells Boardman Officers George Atherton Thatcher, Jr President Gladys Marion Swan Vice-President James Russell Walsh Secretary Lloyd Warren Davis Treasurer Class ftoll Robert Miller Aylsworth Foster Center Robert Harris Barker, A X A West Bridgewater, Mass.

However, with about thirty-six candidates to work with, Coach Cobb and Captain Price set about building up a team which should uphold the standard set by the teams of other years. The schedule arranged by Manager Borden was well balanced, having three games out of seven at home. Perhaps a comparison with the previous sea- son’s schedule might give a clue to our greater success this year. The first game of the season was played at Middletown with Wesleyan. Both teams fought hard and appeared quite evenly matched, since neither could gain 77 €fk€ through the line. Rhode Island’s play was marred only by her unsuccessful use of the forward pass. Price, Redford and Edmonds played the strongest game for Rhode Island. When the final whistle blew neither side had scored. Brown was our next opponent and although we were defeated 20-0, it was not without a hard battle. Several times during the game we held our opponents for downs when they threatened our goal line. Again our fonvard passing was weak, as were our end runs. Brown used the forward pass to good advantage throughout the game. Gibbs played exceptionally well at center, his work rival- ling that of Captain Mitchell of Brown. Lloyd and Armstrong played well in the line. In a lively game played at Kingston, Boston College defeated Rhode Island 21-0. We were considerably outweighed but put up a good fight throughout. The main features of the game were the fine end runs and triple pass formations used by Boston. Fordham, our next opponent, also proved too strong for us and we were again defeated by a 21-0 score. Weak defense both in the line and backfield, coupled with the failure of our forward pass, proved our undoing. Several stu- dents made the trip to New York a la Ford to see the contest. Our first and only victory came when we defeated our old rivals from New Hampshire. The game was exciting throughout, the play moving from one end of the field to the other. Punting and a good mixture of old and new football featured the game. Our score came when Edmonds picked up a blocked punt and went across for a touchdown. Edmonds kicked the goal which made the final score 7-0 in our favor. However, the most exciting game of the season came when we played W. P. I. a (i-G tie on our own field. Rhode Island scored in the first half, but failed in the try for a goal. Our opponents came back strong in the last quarter and pushed over a touchdown a half minute before time was called. Too much eagerness on their part caused the try for goal to go wild. The final game was played with New Hampshire at Manchester and resulted in a no score tie. Rhode Island had the better of the argument during the first half but failed to score. Old style football was the rule after open formations, shifts, and forward passes failed to produce results. Although we won but one game and tied two, the season may be considered a success, inasmuch as we defeated our chief rival in one game and held them to a no score tie in the other, and were hampered for the greater part of the season by injuries, eligibility rules, and a lack of suitable varsity material. Only one player, 78 Captain Price, will be lost to next season’s team, so it appears that we are to have a wealth of material when the next season opens. Immediately after the last game, Albert E. McIntosh was elected captain for 1915. A harder working man could hardly have been chosen to fill the position. Captain McIntosh has already inaugurated indoor practice in the drill-hall, and intends to hold spring practice in order to unearth more material. In closing, we take this opportunity to thank Coach Cobb and Manager Bor- den, as well as Captain Price, for the hard and untiring work they have done during the season in trying to give Rhode Island a team of which she might be justly proud. The results of the 1914 season were as follows: — Rhode Island 0 — Wesleyan 0 Rhode Island 0 — Brown 20 Rhode Island 0 — Boston College 21 Rhode Island 0 — Fordham 21 Rhode Island 7 — New Hampshire 0 Rhode Island 6— W. P. I. 6 Rhode Island 0 — New Hampshire 0 79 80 IhiscbnU Captatn=€lcct Frank Joseph Lennox jHanager Gilbert Ralph Cordin Stesistant Jllanagcr Dean Blenus Fraser Coacf) George Robert Cobb Jxetmlu of tfje 1914 Reason On April 11, 1914, Rhode Island opened the most successful baseball season in her history. The team, composed mostly of veterans, played consistently throughout the season, and met with but two reverses. The first game with Went- worth was an easy battle and gave us much to look forward to in the games to come. The final score was 14-2 in favor of Rhode Island. The result of the second game, that with Wesleyan, served only to increase our enthusiasm, for we won by a 10-1 score. Coleman pitched a steady game, 81 keeping the hits scattered. Sullivan, Lennox, T ully and McLeod starred for R. I., the latter getting five put-outs at third and corralling three hits out of five chances. The team went into the New Hampshire game determined to win, and win they did, by a 5-1 verdict. Rhode Island outplayed her old rivals in every depart- ment. Lussier pitched excellent ball, allowing but four scattered hits, whereas the Rhode Island batters found Sanborn for eleven safeties. The game was fairly even up to the seventh, but in that session R. I. began to figure in the run column. Tully was safe on R. Brackett’s error, took third on McLeod’s single, and scored when Welch tried to catch McLeod stealing second. Two more came in in the seventh. Lawrence singled, reached second on an error, third on Lussier ' s sacri- fice, and scored on Lennox’s drive through short. Lennox scored on Tully ’s single. New Hampshire scored her only tally in the eighth on singles by Hobbs and Sanborn, and by Lussier’s error. Tully, McLeod, Hudson and Lussier each col- lected two singles. W. Brackett did good work for New Hampshire. Rhode Island’s first set-back came at the hands of Trinity by a 6-0 count. Bunched hits off Coleman in the fourth, sixth and eighth, coupled with errors, al- lowed six runs to count. Baker kept the R. I. hits so well scattered that only one Rhode Islander reached third. The day after the Junior Prom, however, saw Rhode Island come back strong and defeat Boston College 8-2. The game was uncertain during the first few in- nings, but in the seventh, R. I. clinched the contest by scoring five runs. Tully and McLeod singled, Seifert walked, Nichols doubled, Tully and McLeod scoring. Seifert scored on Lawrence’s sacrifice fly, Price was safe on an error and scored on Lussier’s hit. May 9, Interscholastic Meet day, saw another victory added to our string. The fast Springfield Y. M. C. A. team was our opponent in a fast, scrappy game which stood at the finish with the score 4-1 in our favor. Price’s great throw to the plate in the first inning was the main feature , while the good work of Eddy, the Springfield slab artist, and the fine fielding of the whole Rhode Island team also stood out prominently. Although we confidently expected to give Brown a trimming, one Flanders, a long heaver of the hill nine, let us down with two hits while the Brown boys were 82 sending Lussier’s shots all over the field. A one-handed catch by Johnson of McLeod’s drive, and double plays, Lennox to Tully to Seifert, were the only features of note. After our opponents had scored eight times in six innings the game was called on account of the cold. Nevertheless, we came back and won the last two games of the season. Fort Adams was defeated at Newport, 7-4. We ended the season by sending New York University down to a 15-3 defeat. The heavy hitting of the Rhode Island team featured this contest. Too bad it wasn’t at Brown! Captain Sullivan found the ball for three singles out of four tries, Seifert for two triples and a double out of five, while “Boomer” Tully clouted the sphere to the brook for a home run. Much praise is due Coach Cobb, Captain Sullivan and Manager Baxter for the good work they did during the season. Under the able leadership of Captain-elect Frank J. Lennox we can justly look for a repetition of the good work of the past season, which proved to be the best yet experienced at Rhode Island. The results of the season: Rhode Island 14 — Wentworth Institute 2 Rhode Island 10 — Wesleyan 1 Rhode Island 5 — New Hampshire 1 Rhode Island 0 — Trinity 6 Rhode Island 8 — Boston College 2 Rhode Island 4 — Springfield Y.

Stanley Beamensderfer Cl )t Crack Ceam The track team, although unsuccessful in both meets of the season, showed that it was due only to their inability to take second and third places, for enough firsts were secured to make a very creditable showing. It is to be hoped that this difficulty will be remedied in the future by the participation in this branch of sport of every one who might secure points for the team. 84 Rhode Island lost the first meet of the season to Tufts by a 69-39 score on their field. Kinney, Coleman and Nordquist starred for Rhode Island. The second meet, with New Hampshire, also proved to be a defeat for us. Here, as before, our inability to take second and third places spelled defeat for us. In this meet Captain Kinney demonstrated his ability; his all round work being the feature of the day. ®lje Jklap ®eam The relay season just closed proved to be the best yet experienced at Rhode Island. All three races, with M. A. C., New Hampshire, and Boston College, were victories for our team. The incoming class brought us some of the material that was needed for a winning team, and in Wood and Gardner we have the finds of the season. These men, together with Captain Coleman, Dodge, Greenhalgh, and Clark made, under the careful training of Coach Beamensderfer, a combination hard to beat. The second team also showed up well during the season, running a fine race at the Providence Armory Meet. Despite the fact that the Freshman relay team was defeated in their race with the Brown Freshmen, under the cir- cumstances the team made a fine showing. 85 0M (SOS® XIX Results of ®ufts jfleet at jWtbforb 100 yd.

Elizabeth Meears Secretary The dramatic club, in their presentation last spring of “Alabama”, a southern drama by Augustus Thomas, proved that this organization was worthy of a promi- nent place among the activities of the college. The play was first put on at the Talma Theatre in Providence, and met with such success that three other en- gagements were arranged for; at Wickford, at Peaccdale, and at the college. Owing to the graduation of several of its most talented members, the club is somewhat handicapped this year. However, a rural comedy drama entitled “Down in Maine” has been chosen upon, and is now being rehearsed for presenta- tion at the college in April or May. 96 Clinton D.

Under its auspices, an inter-class debate is held each year between the Sopho- more and Freshman classes. The cup offered last year by the alumni to the win- ners was won this year by the Class of 1917, represented by Solomon Fine, Capt., Harry Cohen and Henry A. Barrows. 99 Ernest G.

Dodge Captain oj Rifle Team One of the organizations which has not received much consideration in past years is the Rifle Club. Much of the credit for keeping the club alive and reviving interest in it this year is due Mr. W. E. Dodge, aided by Captain Dove. Largely through their efforts, the Rifle Club became a member of the Inter-Collegiate Rifle Association and as such is entitled to compete with other colleges in the annual contests. A fairly good showing was made by the team last year. This winter, through renewed interest, and the appearance of more candidates for the team, the club is making good, and the team has piled up some good scores thus far. 100 Agricultural Club Carlisle Hall President Clifford M. Rice Vice-President Solomon Fine Secretary Ashbel R. Welles Treasurer In the past year the Agricultural Club has seen one of its most successful periods. Meetings have been held semi-monthly, at which several members of the faculty as well as outside men have acted as speakers. Interesting discussions among the members have also greatly aided in promoting interest in the club. Under the efficient training of Professors Adams and Cooley the club has turned out several enterprising teams. In competition with other New England colleges, the stock-judging team secured second place at the Brockton Fair; while the crop-judging team also secured a place at Worcester. In view of the increasing activity shown during the past year, the Agricultural Club is certain to hold its place with other clubs in the New England Federation of Agricultural Students. 101 £ ocietp of itlecfjanital engineers Clarence H.

Young The Society of Mechanical Engineers was founded February 17, 1915, by ten of the mechanical engineering students for the purpose of promoting the knowledge of the arts and sciences of Mechanical Engineering. Meetings are held every month, at which talks on subjects of interest are given, followed by discussions. Speakers from various manufacturing plants are occasionally secured to give praeti- talks from their experience. 102 American institute of (Electrical (Engineers JAtjobe Sslanb tate College JBrancl) Wesley C. Miller Chairman Alfred P. Kivlin Vice-Chairman Phineas M. Randall Secretary Charles E. Seifert Treasurer Some years ago a society was formed by several of the students, its purpose being the advancement of electrical engineering knowledge among the members of the college. This society continued successfully until 1913, when application for a Student Branch Charter was made to the A. I. of E. E., under which charter the organization now exists. Meetings are held at least once a month during the college year, at which current topics relating to the field of electro-mechanical engineering are discussed. This discussion is led either by one of the members, or by some one engaged in electrical work. Many of the members of this organization are also affiliated with the A. I. of E. E. as Student members, and at times the proceedings of the mother society are the subject of discussion. 103 The Young Women’s Christian Union has been very active during the past year. Meetings have been held every Monday evening, and topics of interest have been presented. In March, 1914, a play entitled “The Girls of 1776” was given, the proceeds of which were used to send delegates to the Silver Bay Conference. The delegates sent were Miss Annie S. Hoxsie, ’16, and Miss Adelaide G. Watson, T5. The play was again presented in Wakefield. In March, 1915, “Peg 0’ My Heart” was presented by Marion H. Clark, and in April a home-talent play, “The Farmerette,” was given. The proceeds of each are being put to beneficial use. 104 During the past year, in spite of rather indifferent backing, the Y. M. C. A. has set out to be of some use to the student body. In the fall a committee was appointed to be of assistance to any men, particularly those who were not in fra- ternity houses, who were sick, down in their studies, or in any other kind of trouble. Informal meetings were held every month, at which interesting topics were brought up and refreshments served. A plan of having a speaker from outside the college every month has been fairly successful in its execution. 105 LECTURES Hectare association Norman H. Borden Professor Samuel H.

This was clearly shown by the increased attendance at the meetings, held regularly each month through the winter, at the homes of the members. The annual banquet of the Club, held at the MacAlpin Hotel on February 27, 1915, was also well attended. Dr. Edwards, Mr. Rodman, and several others from the college were present, and helped to make the occasion one to be long remembered. 116 robibence Club Chapin T. Arnold, ’94 President Frank H. Briden, ’13 Vice-President Henry E. Davis, ’14 Secretary-Treasurer In the summer of 1913, a few of the alumni working in Providence came to- gether for the purpose of founding a club to promote more intimate social rela- tions among the various graduates. The club has been eminently successful, for, during the past year, there has been an increase both in membership and interest. The members endeavor at every opportunity to influence public opinion more favorably toward the college, and to encourage prospective students to enter Rhode Island. The club is still very young, yet the enthusiasm and loyalty of its members will surely be instrumental in helping to establish a bigger and better Rhode Island. j§ outij Count? Club William J. Whalen, ' 12 Chairman-Secretary This club, composed of graduates residing in close proximity to the college, was founded in December, 1913. Informal meetings are held usually once a month at the homes of the members, and various subjects relating to the welfare of the college are discussed. The primary object of the founding of this club was to awake some of the alumni from their lethargy, and to stimulate in them an active interest in the work of their Alma Mater. The members of the Club earnestly hope that all the South County alumni will find it possible to attend these meetings and keep in touch with the college, which at all times needs the support of all her graduates. 117 HM ®0M mm XIX £ cl)olastic honors 1913-1914 Jfinal honors for Course J igf) honors Harold William Browning Lorenzo Foster Kinney, Jr. James Hilton Aldred Helen Wheeler Ford honors Myron Angell Hawkins honors for tfje f9ear Seniors juniors Robert William Belfit Norman Harrison Borden opbomore Charles Edward Seifert Jfresfjmeti James Hugh Williamson Solomon Fine Peter Joseph Anthony Comi Philip Smoot Harold William Browning James Hilton Aldred Helen Wheeler Ford John Leo Sullivan Lorenzo Foster Kinney, Jr. Frederick Otto Aspinwall Adelaide Gilbert Watson Wesley Clifton Miller 118 ILippitt |ftatl Map X, 1914 Committee of Srranaement (Cxeeutibe J.

Although organization did not take place until the past year, the founders of the Club have felt that this was not due to any lack of suitable material in the past. Already candidates are fighting madly to have the honor of having their names enrolled upon the roster, and it is expected that within a year the membership will easily pass the 100 mark. 129 The Dream of a Freshman on the Night Before One of the Usual Tests in Chem. 1 Answer any nine of the following seven questions 1 .

One of the heckers enters Davis Hall and is heard to ask another of his kind: — “Say, kin you tell me where I kin find that ' ere Tucker gal?” Prof. “Dicky”: — “If I take a piece of gold and beat it, will it be trans- lucent?” Chorus. “No, invisible.” Hawkins: -“Down in a school in Philadelphia they pay $25 for a human body, guess I’ll sell mine.” Redford: — “Don ' t do it, you’ll cheat the company.” Nap Borden: — “No, I’m not trying to sell this guy anything. He ' s a friend of mine.” Brosie Chantler: — “Say Jerry, it must have been hot playing football to-day.” Jerry: — “Not half as hot as when you’re talking”. Walmsley. — “H ow much docs a sweater weigh, Cy?” Cy Milnes (after serious thought) : —“Well, that depends on how heavy it is.” 130 ®l)e ®lee Club on tfje Eocfes 1 ’Twas a dark and stormy night On Narragansett Bay, Where the good ship “Twentieth Century” Was trying to find her way. The captain of the fishing boat, Who had piloted them from the dock. Forgot that he was near the shore And struck a ledge of rock. 3 In pulling the old tub off the rocks The good ship struck, herself; And soon both ship and fishing boat Were fast on the rocky shelf. 4 No fear had the brave Glee Clubbists, As they stood upon the deck. Hy Medbery offered good advice, ’Til they said “Pull in your neck”. 5 Tal Dodge, the man from Block Island, That blot upon the sea, Offered to get the good ship off; But the crew said “Leave us be.” 6 Pug Hall was quite excited As he paced around the deck: He had visions of a failure, Sez he “We’re lost, by heck.” Then above the noise and tumult The captain’s voice rang calm; “I’ll land you all ashore to-night, No one shall come to harm.” 8 By means of a leaky row-boat They were taken to the shore; And the brave and hardy songsters Vowed they’d go to sea no more. 9 At last they landed in Newport, As the clock was striking two; And the good townspeople were wait- ing there To welcome the shipwrecked crew. 10 You usually read how shipwrecked men Get down on their knees and pray, But all these hardy songsters said Was, “Lead us to the hay.” 131 Jackowitz: — “Say, Medberrv, get that joke so you can spring it. Hy (scornfully):— “Say Looie, what you doing? Selling rubber boots?” “Buff” (referring to one of Huxley’s statements): — “Are you a lover of beauty, Bert?” Cordin: — “Sure, aint I wild about you?” Prof. Boardman: — “Mr. Aldrich, of what value is a college education?” “Danny”: — “Well, it teaches one to know a man and woman, when you see one.” Note: — This was the same day that Prof. Boardman told Danny he didn’t even read intelligently. Doc Leighton (showing “Nap” Borden how to tie a yam sample): “You put it around a pencil, then you get your girl to hold it while you tie it.” Noank Smith (in a burst of poetic inspiration): — John Pryor, sings in the choir; Holy Smokes, his shirt’s on fire. And Pryor answers, “You’re a liar”. Doc Leighton, in Industrial Chem., tells the class that charcoal is the best fuel to broil a steak. “Sandy” kindly offers to furnish the charcoal. LANDMARKS 132 After Prof. Wales has handed back to the Mechanics class the test papers of the week before, the class noticed a slight bluish tinge to the air in the room and wondered very much as to the reason; until someone discovered Dean Fraser at the rear of the room talking very earnestly to his paper and the world at large. Prof. Churchill (after Gillis tries to spring a joke) : — “Each class is like a pack of cards”. Gillis: — “How’s that?” Prof. C. :• — ‘ ‘ Because they always have a joker, and we treat it in the usual way.” Gillis: — “How?” Prof. C. : — “We discard it.” April 21, 1914. College Orchestra holds a dance in Wakefield. Redford tries the Cork-screw, but fails. Cordin succeeds All-Wright. Flaherty drills the Mulligan Musketeers. Joe LeBoeuf (in Military Science): — “The sentries were marching up and down with armed rifles.” Kirk (at Athletic Association meeting): — “Mr. Chairman, is there anything on the floor now?” Chorus. “No”. 133 Homer Rowell. .

Inquisitive. We don’t know. Ask them. C. H. Parker goes to sleep in calc, and “Tip” threatens to throw his shoe at him ; so Parker stays awake for the benefit of the class. Walmsley (to Romeo in Graphics class) : — “You don’t understand him. He thinks you’ve got a load on, on only one side.” Boob (the day after the Brown game, 1914): — “Want something to eat, Gene?” Flaherty : — ‘ Um ee — yah shut up !” Who is this “Mrs. Ashbel R.

EXTRA MARCH 17, 1915 MASS MEETING HELD In auditorium of Ratio Hall Last night, in Ratio Hall, the citizens of Eliptic Center and the students of Cosine University listened to a stirring appeal by Captain Seefitt of the University Mechanics team. The audience were alternately moved to tears and ecstatic delirium. He said in part: — “Students of Cosine, and good citizens of Eliptic Center, lend me your attentions. I have called this meeting to-night to place before you all, the very shameful situation and condi- tions which confront the Me- chanics team. All season I have struggled most assiduously with formulas, problems, broken slide- rules, rusty planimeters, faulty blue-prints, and what not. (ap- plause) Now my patience is gone! I demand new problems, better rules, plainer prints! More men must come out for the Mechanics team. I’ll say right here that those who did come out done titan service, (prolonged applause, three people faint.) Again! The text-book fur- nished the team was simply rot- ten! Coach Wales was contin- ually deriding it. In fact, one game had actually to be forfeited because the twisting moment of the goal-post was missing from the index — think of it! Many times we didn’t have the signals right! Why? Well may you ask! Simply because the slide- rules were not substantial enough to stand a six hour exam. Gentlemen! Shall this con- tinue? (cries of No! No!) Shall these faithful men who come out for the team be handi- capped because of rusty plani- meters? I leave the questions in your hands to correct! ! (Thunderous acclamation. Crowd carries Seefitt out on their heads.) ANNUAL BALL A SUCCESS Eliptic Center Folks Dance Away the wee, Dt hours of morning In a hall gaily festooned with black and yeller cheese cloth in- termingled here and there with suspended slide-rules and plani- meters, the good citizens of Eliptic Center, after a hard day’s work in the slide-rule factory, whirled away the wee, sm ' a’ hours of the morn. The belle of the event was pretty Miss Calculation, one of Eliptic Center’s Smart Set. She wore a long green serge checked with fancy logarithms. She was escorted by our old favorite. Captain Seefitt. He was attired in an underpinning of blue and green lines of action. They entertained the more se- date theorems of the evening by their graceful gyrations in the maizes of the new dance called the “Force Polygon”. They certainly were characteristic of a couple. Mr. and Mrs. Victory carried off the dance prize of the even- ing, a large, pearl-inlaid answer book. When the compass said 3.49 G. Q. the dance broke up with best wishes all round for a pros- perous final in Mechanics in VIA WIRELESS Mechanieville, S. D., Mar. dz — While rummaging about En- tropy Hall, Percy Gordin, a student in Planimetry at Siwash College, collided with a heavy section modulus. He swayed under the terrible strain. The : working strength of the impact I killed him instantly. The “To- peka Cogwheel” said, in com- menting on this remarkable in- cident — “He calmly approached | equilibrium and is now at rest”. I NEW GAME STARTED Instigated by Capt. Short Last night, while moving the throttle on the pumphouse boil- er, Capt. Short of the Hydraul- ics team knocked out one of the plates on the steam chest. One after another, the huge pieces of red-hot steel fell to the floor, but by agile ducking, Short managed to escape. Thus the game of “Ducking Stresses” was discovered. DO YOU KNOW THAT Guss Glasheen wore a white collar yesterday? Hefty Dandles pressed his pants recently? Bill Becker didn’t look like a bum yesterday? That was some test.

Righteous Indignation “So you want a divorce, do you?” said the lawyer, peering over his glasses at the worried little man in front of him. “Yes, sir. I’ve stood just about all I can. My wife’s turned suffragette and she is never at home.” “It is a pretty serious thing to break up a family, you know. Don’f you think you had better make the best of it for a while? Perhaps it is only a passing fad.” “That’s what I’ve been doing, but there are some things a man can’t stand. I don’t mind the cooking and I haven’t kicked on washing the dishes, but I do draw the line at running pink ribbons in my nightshirt to fool the baby.” — Success.
