GEORGE ROBERT COBB FOREWORD With greetings and best wishes to all we send forth this little volume. We hope that the 1917 GRIST will afford durable pleasure to both graduates and undergraduates and that it will meet the traditional aim in that it will be a pleasing and lasting memento of the fast fleeting days spent at Rhode Island. We have concentrated our efforts in making the 1917 GRIST meet these requirements. We hope we have suc- ceeded and trust that our efforts will be appreciated so that all just criticism may be softened by such appreciation. ffite (5rlst of the 20 Class Shoftp 3lslattii S tati ' (EnlUgp (Curporalxon Hon.

Treasurer Albert A. LeBoeuf Secretary (Elaaa Sjiatnry On Sept. 13, 1913 Rhode Island flung wide her portals to admit a heterogen- ous mass of humanity which has since crystalized into the class of 1917. Un- der the at.acks of the upper-classmen an intense class spirit developed among us that enabled our class football team to down the Varsity in practice games bin as individuals, however, we were so green and lacking in confidence that little was heard of our class the first half of our freshman year. We were beaten by the Sophs in track 62-50 and in football 6-0. In basketball we came back and beat the Sophomores by narrow margins in two games. Our first Varsity letter was won in track thai spring and we also had men on the baseball team. We placed two men on the Varsity debating team and were represented on the Beacon Board. Several members of our class were in the Glee Club and the College Orchestra and two of the freshmen were members of the Dramatic Club. In September of the following year, we sent out fifteen men for football, six of whom made the Varsity. That winter the discovery of a dark horse among the Sophomores made an unbea.cn Varsity Relay team possible. As Sophomores we continued our good work in literary lines, placing two men on the Varsity debating team and winning two of the prizes in the Kingston essay contest. We also pro- vided our share of Varsity men tor the track and baseball teams. The class suf- fered severely from the College sieve that year. 19 ffi te (Brist of the 24 Class At the beginning of this, our third year, five Juniors received the football letters. Basketball was introduced in the winter and three of our members made the Varsity, one of them being elected captain. The relay team is captained by a Junior and the class bids fair to have other representatives on the varsity track and baseball teams in the spring. Along other lines also are our members active, Juniors being at the bead of the Beacon, and the Debating Society and the Aggie Club. Since entering, our class roll has been cut from 87 to 36. We hope that our numbers may remain undiminished from now to the end and that we may ever be as true and loyal sons of Rhode Island, assisting in furthering her progress to the high rank among colleges which she deserves. 20 Rhode Island jSfate Colle ge] Arnold Ames, 0 X Westerly, R. I. ’’Skeete” " Runny " Electrical Engineering Color Guard in Battalion. " Skeete, " better known to his closer associates as " Bunny, " was born in the farming districts of Wester- ly. His dislike for the " Aggie’ ' life is merely a case of " enough’s enough.” Two o’clock in the morning is a trifle early for a man of mathematical instincts to subject himself to even if the " Calc” prof does keep a cow. At this point it might be said that “Runny " pasted " Tip’s " ca ' .c course for an average of 99% or bet- ter. Resides these achievements, ’’Skeete " has ambi- tions of becoming major of the battalion. Just now he is working hard to oust the drum carrier from his job. “Skeete” is just a plain unassuming chap. He is cap- able of recognizing a joke and is not immune from slip- ing one over on the next fellow. You may think he is a woman hater but listen — he loves a lady who ' s an angel in his eyes and who is as pretty as the goddess of sunshine. J. Gordon Anderson, Westerly, R. I. ’’Andy’’ " J. Gordon " " Doctor " Applied Science Just because he spent a few years in Scotland Andy claims to be Scotch. He does look funny as lie pikes across the campus, hatless ard with that long overcoat flapping in the wind. These trips he makes frequently to feed and water his " bugs” in the Bac’ lab. He takes good care of them and they love him dearly. Even though he does spend most of his time squinting through a " mic” or poring over Menda’.s theories, his ambition is to be Major of the batallion. Andy has his eyes closed to the ladies— on the campus He likes singing however, and insists that any four College men make a quartette. But then if ye can say it’s a braw bricht monlicht nicht it ' s aw richt — ye ken? Richard Palmer Ash, A A Bridgewater, Mass. " Dick’’ Electrical Engineering “Dick” just blew into Kingston with the rest of the green ones that came to college in the fall of 1913. Bridgewater gave a sigh of relief when his pocket edition of a Roman Gladiator left his home town, for no " rough house " was ever complete without " Dick.” His smile and good nature has made him a friend of all. “Dick” would gladly give you his last five dollars and then write home for another five spot. In fact, 1 is reputation as a great writer was earned in this way. He is taking the Electrical Engineering course, but it is hard to say what he is studying. However, he has put away childish things and devotes his time to cal- culus. descriptive geometry and the great national in- door sport. 21 ffi ie (Brlat of the 24 Class Henry Arthur Bartels, axa New York, N. Y. " Bart” “Goimany” Agriculture Class Football (1); Class Baseball (1), (2); Varsity Football (3) ; Corporal Co. A. (3) ; Vice-President Agricultural Club (3). Dis guy lives on thoity-thoid street. The fardda down ya go d ' tougher dey git, ’n Bart lives in da last house. After bidding d’gang s’long, “Goimany” depart- ed for Kingston, leaving in his wake many a broken- hearted thirty-third street belle. Once clear of the tall buildings and elevateds, he proceeded to revolutionize the bacteriological world. Bacteria and their relation to the human “physiognomy” is his favorite topic, and if you wish to start a real debate, just uphold opposite views. In the Fall and Spring, the Goiman can be seen prancing up and down the gridiron and diamond re- spectively. He likes football, but the call of the dia niond is his particular failing as attested by his ntag- nificient (?) pitchin’-arm, which has fooled many an ambitious slugger in the Frat. League. 2 T A Pawtucket, R. I. Home Economics Vice-President of 1917 (1), (2); Sec. of Y. W. C. A. (2) ; 1917 Grist Board (3). Where there ' s Hope — there’s life! From the first, 1917 has had a loyal supporter in Hope. Even the wearing of a red ribbon on a salmon-pink gown, did not daunt her. Like Lauder, Hope believes that " it ' s nice to get up in the morning but " — ! Since entering R. 1. she has taken a prominent part in the social life of the college, but these activities have not interfered with her studies. Nature studies attract Hope and she elects several hours in " Campus Lab” with one who is a Hawk-in (and here let’s borrow from the German)- es. The future seems to point toward a practical appli- cation of her chosen course. James Andrew Clarke, B4 Providence, R.

However, the capabilities of this disciple of Hoyle are not limited to the mere ability to solve problems of probability, for he is equally proficient in propound- ing theories pertaining to any of the conceivable bran- ches of art and science. His diminutive stature has been his constant source of despair, for it has been a prominent factor in his lack of confidence relative to his associations with the residents of Davis Hall. 22 1 Rhode island fffate College | Harry Cohen, t» E P Brockton, Mass. " Harry " “Henry " Electrical Engineering Varsity Debating Team (1) (2); Kingston Prize (1); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Lecture Association (3); Editor Sophomore Beacon (2); Editor Grist (3). " Henry’s " first glory came when he copped the speak- ing prize with his emotional eloquence at the Fresh- Soph. debate. Ever since then his saturated delivery of taurine ideas has gained him renown and — feeds, the latter as the result of sundry murmurings in the ears of different young " wumyen” in the big city. With anguish we admit that Harry is a chef d ' oeuvre,— an achievement; High Chief of this volume, dilettante in literature, the reference book, artistic criticism, Sat- urday Evening Post, soup-ladling, and electricity. He ponderously assures us that Wakefield is no more. Condolence. Harry, did she can you too? Winfred West DeMay, A A + Wethersfield, Conn. “Win " " Electrician” Civil Engineering " Win has been so busy with transit and tape and with the various other concerns. of a perspective Civil Engineer that he has had little time for other college activities. Nevertheless, we arc main that should the college start a Mandolin C’ub, or a long distance-let- ter writing Club, he would rapily rise to fame We might mention that he has already achieved not a little distinction in the latter. Why such long letters invari- ably leave Kingston every night for Wethersfield is somewhat of a question.

Being under the illusion that he needed a little higher education, there migrated to Kingston one day in the fall of 1913, one Ralph Gibbs. He holds the scrutiniz- ing position of “Correspondence Censor” of the Watson House, an office which entails the minute inspection of all the postals and letters directed to dwellers therein. We often wonder why the boy didn’t take up “Aggie” as his special learning seems to be toward that of Miller. " Gibbie ’s” popularity was gained on the gridiron. His only fear was that ma would find out that he in- dulged in the rough game.

If you look closely you will no- tice that the wise saying over his desk reads " Us little fellows must be reckoned with. " The “Babe” believes that the pen is mightier than the sword and so proceeded to get himself placed on the Beacon, a paper which jumped immediately into the calcium light through its “Gillisonian " Editorials. Athletically speaking " Gill " prefers to cheer on the gladiators rather than maul the enemy himself. “Baby” began his career on Kingston Hill as a chemical Engineer but the women soon led him from the “straight and narrow.” Now he intends to be just a plain chemist.

" Charles Edward Harry, Jr., Providence, R. I. “Charley” Agriculture When first we assembled as Freshmen, we found among us a quiet, conservative lad who came from deep solitude of East Providence. For a long time we saw little of Charley for, after one visit to Wakefield, he spent his time in studying chemistry, for which lie seemed to have a special liking. This was probably the foundation of the lengthy discourses which he later held in “Aggie Client. ” For some reason, which we can only surmise, Char- ley is invariably a day late in returning after vacations and during intervals the Freshmen in East Hall rule without fear of repulsion or suppression.

Anybody would know at first sight that he had many of the char- acteristics of a poet. His hair has a tendency to sprout in no specific direction, a feature which he possesses in common with all great artists. Athletics were always attractive to the man from Burrillville High. He at once made his class-team and then proceeded to show his mettle by making the varsity in his Sophomore year.

In fact, he seems to have had this purpose all his life, and that purpose is to get enough to eat. “Don " was the inventor of the motor muffler which was first brought into prominence with the feeds which he obtained from his trunk, com- monly knowm as " Oscar’s Restaurant. " His devotion is not only directed to the inner man, for " Don” finds time to pay due respect to the opposite sex and his studies.

Neither he nor his views have charged materially, and if he succeeds in absorb- ing " Pa’s " advice, he may some day realize his ambi- tion. But " Abie " could make a far greater success in life in any number of other professions. For instance, he might cut dri’l once in a while, he might become a society leader, an artist, a ballet dancer, and get away with it. However, in spite of all that has been said, " Abie” has many admirable characteristics. He never goes to Wakefield, he is never seen smoking; and in his Sophomore Year he developed such a strong dis- like for beverages stronger than milk, that he became a most active member of the " Down-with-the-booze " league.

The fact that “Rough” has some Indian blood in him (Manchester Tribe) cx- p’ains the cause of his enviable record as an athlete and a student.

In September of 1913. “Alphonse " bid all his friends at B M. C. Durfee High a last farewell, and left for Rhode Island. While " Joe” has been with us he has distinguished himself in every branch of athletics which he has entered. " Joe” was immune to the " Davis Hall fever” during his first year. This may be accounted for by the fact that most of " Al ' s” time was spent in developing his salary arm by throwing eggs here and there, (mostly down there). Joe’s favorite saying is " we don ' t have much money but we have a -time;” His natural optimism increases our confidence in his success after his graduation.

During his first and second years, James filled the office of " scullion” at the “Johnny Cake Club.” When writing to friends at home, he always mentioned the fact that he dined at the “Club.” “Jim ' s” ambition is to be a " comical” engineer in spite of the fact that he looks like a minister. His chief asset in life is his taking ways. His room-mates have to nail every- thing down. James holds the palm as champion rottgh- liouser, being able to throw a shoe or a book with deadly accuracy.

" Many arc called but few are chosen,” is an old but trtie saying. At the side of this eulogy is one half of the present feminine roll of the Class of 1917. She came to us from, Tech High. Providence and she brought with her many original ideas, the most striking one being the “Xew Woman.” Grace is a strong be- liever in athletics, especially walking and canoeing. She knows every square inch of ground within a radius of ten miles of college, and has counted every ripple on hundred acre pond. She hunts with the skill of a real huntsman, but she hates to kill her game, and for this purpose “Lester” efforts be fruitless, she has a hunter accompany her. Her witty sense of humor will surely win her a place wherever she goes, for she be- lieves as El ' a Wheeler Wilcox, — “Laugh and the World laughs — etc. 29 (Brlst of the 20 Class Samuel Lyman Rodman, B t Gould, R.

This is a very flattering sketch of " Let” Smith who in the fall of 1913 became tired of the rest of the popu- lation in Xoank and left him to seek civilization. That is the reason he is here ; it is no fault of ours. How- ever, we are not altogether sorry that he is among us, for were it not for his melodious voice tilling Kingston County and vicinity, with its wonderfully quet r sounds, and his indulgence in the manly art (which scents rather hard on his eyes), we would find life rather commonplace. " Xoank” is usually found performing before a laugh- ing and appreciative audience. Should he ever give up his career as an electrical engineer we shall undoubted- ly see him in vaudeville.

The fact that " Deac” held a high office in this club and that he roomed with the moniter never troubled him, for he always held his own in the affairs of the " East Hall ' ’ of old. He has always been a conscien- tious student, yet not limiting his activities to col ' ege studies. " Deac” dolefully shakes his head when asked ‘“What is a farm without a chicken?

With high and mighty hopes of becoming a second Edison, he plunged into Electri- cal Engineering. At the end of the year he believed himself better suited to literature and took up philoso- phy and poetry. It soon became quite common-place to hear Joe tear off a yard of “Hexameter.” a stump speech or expound deep theories in philosophy and canoeing.

Kerr President Vice President Secretary Treasurer (flass history In September 1914 we entered as Freshmen, one hundred and twenty strong. We had been here but a short time when we organized, and made our presence a known quantity, on the campus as w r ell as in class rooms. We, as a class, gave material assistance to the Varsity teams, in football, track and baseball. Our class was represented in each sport, having letter men on the respective ’Varsity teams. There was no inter-class football games, but i:i the track meet we defeated the Sophomores decisively. The next fall we returned reduced a little in numbers. To keep up tradition we at once started to do things. On November 9-10 w r e won the track meet by a score of 68j4 to 5 7} -. Then on Nov. 23 came the football game. With a team composed of many men of Varsity calibre we easily defeated the Freshmen. 13-0. On Jan. 22 and again on Feb 26th w ' ere the Freshmen defeated by us at basket- ball. ' In athletics, in class room, in social and in College activities the class of T8 has shown its ability and willingness to do all things possible to benefit, incident- ally the class, but first of all the College. 35 CLASS OF 1919 (Class iBistnni The population of Kingston received a boost of one hundred and twenty- eight when the present freshmen class drifted in. Many were the damp pillows that first night in the dorms, when we bemoaned the separation from fond parents and loving sisters (of other fellows ). However, we gradually became accustomed to the hard life and sought consolation in the traditional place. Proxy’s reception to our class was a brilliant success with the necessary touch of excitement added by the dramatic entrance of our president who had escaped from the Sophs in Providence in time to attend the reception. We have bowed to the Sophs in almost all branches of athletics, having been beaten in the track meet and in a close and exciting game of football by the score of 13-0. They were also our conquerors in baske.ball. However, we are reas- onably proud of our two representatives on the Varsity football team and our representative on the relay team. Because of good showing in the Soph track meet and the preliminary class baseball games, we are confident that we have men who are of ' Varsity calibre and who are sure to make places on the track and baseball teams. We recognize the superiority of the Class of 1918 as athletes, but we must lay claim to the fact that 1919 is their equal at least in the manifestation of Rhode Island spirit and we are sure that 1919 will continue in her loyalty. 37 ffi te 6nst of the (£lass SOPHOMORE FOOTBALL TEAM FRESHMAN FOOTBALL TEAM 38 Rhode island .State Colle tje] txtrarts from a Freshman’s Siarif.

Ate in the dining hall with the other inmates. Didn’t eat much as I haven’t learned to grab. Sept. 26. Rooms all fixed up. Fixed it up with Prexy so that I could stay. He said I knew more than he thought I did. Met a bunch of congenial fellows. One sold me a whole pile of second-hand books — dirt cheap. Bought some furni- ture and a share in the radiator. Had to give up furniture as it didn’t belong to the congenial chap who sold it to me. Found out also that the radiator be- longed to the building. Lost some money on that deal. Sept. 27. Started classes to-day and found out that half of those dirt cheap second-hand books hadn’t been in use for six years. Cost some money to be from Missouri. Sept 29. Lectures begin. I guess I’ll have to study here. They say it isn’t like Brown. OcT. 1. The Sophs are awful nice although they secnt to be always hang- ing around and butting in. One Soph put me wise how to stand in with the Profs. He said most of them belonged to the Mexican A. C. and that T had better join. He gave me time to think it over. OcT. 4. Chapel. Bought a ticket for a quarter. Freshman all out in a bunch so as not to be mistaken for the faculty or seniors. Prexy spoke. Oct. 6. Class meeting. The meeting was presided over by the Junior class president. He told us what we were to do and not to do. Said that a few of us were as instructive as the silence we break. Guess he’s right. OcT. 8. Drill today. Feel like a chocolate soldier. Oct. 15. Paid a dollar to join the Mexican A. C. Pretty cheap for a club like that. 1 knew the treasurer who was a Soph and he let me in cheap seeing as I didn’t have much coin. Oct. 16. Cut drill. Told the captain that I was sick. The old boy had the nerve to tell me that he thought I was faking. Oct 17. Can’t look at a co-ed. That rule isn’t so bad as none of us seem to care. One of them isn’t so bad. I caught her squinting at me to-day. Oct. 22. Glee-club try-out. Met a Soph who told me he wished he had my voice. Spoke to the other fellows of my being a second Caruso. Tried out. Made me sing high notes by standing on my tip-toes and low ones sitting down. Won’t know for quite a while whether I made it. Oct. 25. Soph come rushing into my study this morning. Said he smelled rubber burning and thought some of us Freshies had gone to sleep with oifr necks on the radiator. 39 6nst of the 20 Class Oct. 29. Had to rub down the Varsity football player. Hard work, no thanks. Oct. 30. Chcm. quizz. The Prof, asked to see me about my paper. One of the questions was, “What is the atomic theory? " I told him it was “Every little atom has a meaning of its own. " He kind of smiled and told me I was original and that was the kind that was able to write text books. Guess joining that club doesn ' t help some, hey? Nov. 10. Drill inspection, then parade. The captain said I was the only one in step in the whole batallion. The Cap. is a square chap all round. Nov. 16. Freshman- Sophomore Field Day. Sophs tried to cheat. Got caught. We’re to wise for ’em. Some say we won others say we didn’t. Guess we did because we ' re going to celebrate. Nov. 24. Fresh-Soph football game. Got trimmed 6-0 but we gave them a rub for their money. Nobody was killed although we thought our qu arter-back was did for. Some sneak kicked him in the stomach but he had the ball under his belt and that was what saved him. As it was we had to use a monkey-wrench to take it away from him. Sophs celebrated. We didn ' t stop them although we could have. Nov. 26. Thanksgiving. The eats are O. K. down here except when they clean out the ice-box. There’s no place like home and a good square meal. Dec. 3.

I le was graduated from Dart- mouth in 1909, and, while there, played on her famous team that defeated Harvard 34-0. The following year he took charge of the Lomerville High football squad and de- veloped a championship team. From there he went to Brockton, Mass., and rounded out successful football and baseball teams. Having received a call from Passaic, he left Brockton to accept the position he held prior to coming to Rhode Island. The Rhode Island football squad re- ported to Coach Baldwin on September 20th and received its first lessons in real, tough, football training. Part of the time of each day ' s practice was devoted to calesthenics. The rudiments of the game were firmly in- stilled into the men early in the season. The Coach also developed a string of new plays which wrought havoc among the opponents. Now, what Rhode Island needs is a “system " and “Jim” Baldwin is trying to establish one here. It takes patience and perseverence to incorporate a successful “system” in a new field. The support of the students is essential to the success every Rhode Island man wants to see. If our Coach lives up to his reputation established in former positions, Rhode Island teams will achieve the desired place in inter collegiate athletics. 43 ( 3rist of the 24 tb Class (Captains a e.

How well they succeeded is what we intend to record. The squad was well sprinkled with veterans. Capt. McIn- tosh, I.eBoeuf, Lawrence, Gibbs, Randall, Medberry and Conyers were all men of at least one season ' s test. From the Freshman class there came such stars as O ' Brien and Murphy. These, augmented with a wealth of second string men, gave Coach Baldwin a bright outlook for a fast combination. Following a hard week’s drill in fundamentals and the mastering of several good plays the squad made its long anticipated invasion of the Bear’s strong-hold in Providence. Con- fidence there was none. This was owing, no doubt, to the fact that it was the first game of the season, and also — that “Brown” was the name of the opponents. When the time comes, if it ever does, when the fact that Brown is defending the other goal excites no fear in a Rhode Island team’s heart, then will a Rhode Island team win. 47 (Brtst of the 24 Class Kingston won the toss and chose to receive the ball, but was forced tut punt after three unsuccessful attempts to make first down. From this point on the atmosphere had a decidedly llrown tinge. Whet the smoke of battle had cleared Rhody was on the goose-egg end of a 38-0 score. The State line was a disappointment to her cohorts, being weak at all points and leaving plenty of room for improvement. Gibbs was the only bright light- hut was forced out early in the seccnd half. Crippled by the week’s previous encounter with the Bear, Baldwin’s charges lost to the strong Wesleyan University team at Middletown. Playing on a fitld soaked with several day ' s rain the Blue and White could dt nothing against the heavy Methodists’ forwards. But ’’fight’ was the watchword of the day and the enemy didn ' t score until the last quarter. The tally of 12-0 was the result of several well executed forward passes which the Rhode Island backs failed to stop. The visitors got off some of their trick plays for long gains but when the enemy’s goal posts frowned on t he battle lines, the necessary punch was not forthcoming. A week later, the local machine journeyed to Worcester, determined to re- trieve the last two week ' s set-backs at Worcester Tech’s expense, but the out come of this game was a distinct disappointment to Coach Baldwin, for he had expected to win by at least two touch-downs. The Red and Gray showed unex- pected strength, however and in an unguarded moment pushed over a score. This rude awakening on the visitors part served as a stimulus to the invaders. Play- ing a game there-after which was a revelation to all, the Blue tore off gain after gain, only to be thwarted at the last moment by holding in the line or some other violation. The final chalk read 6-0 in favor of Tech. LeBouef, Gibbs, Dodge, Brightman and McIntosh were the stars. Athletic relations having been resumed with Connecticut, the next thing in order was a football game. On a cold day in October the Blue squad, filled to ti e brim with old Rhody " pep” unlimbered their heavy guns and battered away at the “Aggies " battlements — but wi,h out avail ; that is, the large and safe margin which the Kingston men had counted on was in the end reduced to a 9-7 read- ing, with the Xutmegers holding down the “seven. " This game proved to be one of the most spectacular seen at Storrs in many a season. The heavy line which the home team presented was a distinct surprise to the Kingston men. Rhody scored within two minutes after the opening whistle on an end run bv» LeBoeuf. The try for goal failed. Two seconds before the close of the first half the Aggies threw a desperate forward over the Rhody line. When the referee had untangled the mass of arms and legs a Connecticut man was found tightly hugging the ball. The try for goal was successful and Storrs was ahead 7-6. With four minutes to play before the final whistle would blow. Coach Baldwin got Capt. McIntosh’s S. O. S. and rushed in Moore for a drop kick. Straight as a die the pigskin- sailed between the uprights raising the R. I. tally to 9, which proved to be the end of the day ' s scoring. A harder and cleaner game could hardly be imagined ; the victory was well earned. 48 Rhode JsUutd ffitate (toUe oie] Tile surprise of ilie season came when Rhode Island held the heavy Union team to a 3-0 score at Schenectady, X. V. Expecting defeat, the Rhody gladia- tors went into the game with only one end in view — to fight. The only mark came near the end of the game when Rosecraris, the tall Garnett back, dropped over a beautiful field goal from the 38 yd. line. Kingston hit the line hard, while Union resorted to the overhead attack. Randall, Lussier, O ' Brien and McIntosh were the Blue and White features. St. Stephens College proved an easy prey for the local aggregation, which was now travelling at top speed. The pounding plunges of LeBoeuf and Lager- stedt into center were responsible for long gains through the Stephen’s line. Forty -even to 0 indicated the real strength of the homesters and boded ill for Xew Hampshire. November 19th saw the Kingston eleven fighting out its usual mistake at Fordhani. Lagerstedt was the star of the game, he being the only Stale man to gain consistently. Rhode Island was once well on the way to a touchdown when a Maroon back intercepted one of O’Briens long passes and ran forty yards before being downed. Seven to nothing was the score, in Fordham ' s favor. i The last and crucial battle of tbe season was brought to a glorious end when New Hampshire was sent back with a 19-0 tag hitched to its train. The outlook was all New Hampshire prior to the game, but the old do-or die Rhode Island spirit soon dispelled any fears the local supporters had enter. ained. The brilliant ofFcnse offered the invaders was totally responsible for the scoring. Capt. McIntosh, LeBoeuf and O’Brien furnished a stiff offense while Lussier, Dun- ham, Gibbs and Lawrence played a sterling defense. To Coach Baldwin belongs the lion’s share of the great come-backs of the New Hampshire, Fordhani and Union games. Handicapped all season by the lack of consistant second-team attendance lie hammered away at the fundamentals in his desire to install a system in Rhode Island football. The 1915 Varsity squad knew more football than many a large University team boasts of. Manager " Mull” Henry made an ideal general as regards “ways and means” for his squad while on trips His perception and shrewdness made the way easy for the athletes. All praise is due him. A. A. LeBoeuf the star fullback, was elected to lead the Varsity 1916. “Joe " worked hard all season and well merits his new responsibility and trust.

Three weeks later, other candidates started prac- tice. With seven veterans left over from the 1914 team, prospects were bright. Practice received impetus from the thought of beating Brown, but when the time came for the game, the contest had to be cancelled because of wet grounds due to a post-season snow storm. However, the disappointment was lightened by winning the first game of the season. Rhode Island won from Wentworth Institute by the score of 9-0 on April 10, when Coleman pitched a no-hit no-run game. The battle lasted only seven innings but that was long enough for the home team to put across nine runs. The second game of the season, played at Kingston, April 17, was a fast and exciting contest in which Rhode Island defeated Worcester Polytechnical Institute 1-0. Our only run came in the seventh when Lussier went to the plate after two were out and drove such a hot liner at the second baseman that he was 51 (Brist of the 20 Class knocked over in the attempt to field it. “Luce” went down to second on the next hall pitched and came home on Nichols’s long fly to right. The game was a pitcher’s battle after the first two innings, both pitchers having the opposing batsmen at their mercy. Lynch starred in the field preventing a run by rob- bing Luce of a two-bagger. Seifert, at first, and Torgan, at third, played clean baseball. On April 24th. the varsity dropped a loosely played game to Fort Adams, 2-1. Rhode Island under-rated the soldier boys and many second string men were in the lineup. Keith, who pitched his first game, was wild throughout the game, hitting the first man up and giving three passes. Fuller, the Fort pitcher was also wild, allowing seven passes but he struck out thirteen men. Each team scored one run in the first inning but no more scores were made during the following seven innings of the wierdest kind of baseball. Davis, the first man up in the ninth for the Fort, reached first on Lewis’s error. The bases were then filled and with two out Davis scored on a passed ball by Lawrence. Rhode Island was unable to score in their half of the ninth so the game went to the Fort. Rhode Island beat Boston College 4-1 at Kingston, May 1st, before a large crowd of students and Prom guests. The boys drove Keefe, the Boston College t wirler, from the mound in the third inning. The game was featured by brilliant fielding by the home team, two double plays being pulled off in fine style. Cole- man allowed but five scattered hits and secured six strikeouts. Fitzgerald, who replaced Keefe in the fourth, was wild at first and two runs were made, but then he settled down and sent seven down via the air route. Lewis played a great game at second for Rhode Island, accepting nine chances cleanly and driving in two runs with his safe hit in the fifih. Seifert made but one error in fifteen chances and Lynch made two hits in four times up. At Springfield, May 8th, the fast Y. M. C. A. College team administered our second defeat of the season by the score of 5-2. Coleman, who started for Rhode Island, was relieved in the fifih by Lussier who held his opponents safe until the eighth, when bunched hits and a coup.le of errors gave Springfield the game. Y. M. C. A. College scored one each in the third and fourth. Rhode Island scored her two runs in the eighth. Lennox and Seifert got on through clean hits and were sent home by Lussier’s single. Lussier was caught off second base and Nichols fanned. The game was featured by the smooth work- ing of the well balanced Springfield machine. On May 22nd, the team journeyed to New York to play Fordham. but it rained so severely while the players were warming up that the game could not be played. 52 1 R hode Island ffitate Colle ge] New Hampshire defeated us at Durham on May 29th, 7-4 in a loosely played game. The team was crippled by the loss of the first string battery. Lussier was given poor support but, in spite of this fact, he struck out seven and allowed but six hits. Lermond led off, in the third, with a double and was sent home on a single by Seifert for Rhode Island’s first run. New Hampshire tied the score in the fifth and then made two more in the same inning and three more in the seventh on errors re-enforced by a two-base hit. Rhode Island bunched hits in the eighth, in an attempt to tie the score, but only got two tallies. Torgan and Brackett, the opposing third basemen, were the stars of the game. Lermond and Capt. Lennox each made two hits, one of which in each case, was a double. The final game of the season was lost to Holy Cross, at Worcester, by the score of 7-6. Holy Cross scored in the first inning and in the third added four more runs to their tally. The fourth inning gave Holy Cross another run. The Rhode Is land team found themselves in the fifth and sixth and evened up the score. No further tallies were made by either side until the last half of the ninth, when Holy Cross put over the winning run in spite of the hard playing of Rhode Island. Although the last part of the season was not as successful as the first part, it is felt that the team made a credible showing. Eligibility rules hit the team hard during the last part of the year. The W. P. I. game and the Boston Col- lege game were the best games of the season. Great credit is due Coach Cobb who developed a fast team in spite of adverse conditions.

June 5th. While the team was composed of the fastest men Rhode Island has ever had, in every event except the distance, they were unable to defeat either the Tufts or Xew Hampshire teams. May 8th, Rhode Island opened the season with Tufts at Kingston, and after a closely contested meet lost by the score of 51-66. This meet, in the belief of many, was lost by the lack of co-operation on the part of the track and baseball managers for two or three Varsity men were away on a baseball trip. The hundred yard dash and the high jump furnished some of the closest competition in the meet. Wood, R. I., won the former in a brilliant finish after recovering from a poor start, while in the latter, the winners were decided only after three men jumped to a triple tie. The two- mile event was won by Tufts, in one, two, three order, without any competition on our part after the third half mile was run. This shut-out in the two mile was but a begin- ning, for they repealed this in the half mile and took the first two places in the mile. After totaling the points it was found that Wood, K. I., was the star of the day, by winning 17 points, while Barron, Tufts scored 15. As in the Tufts meet, our weakness in the distances spelled disaster in our second meet, for New Hampshire was far stronger in the sprints and field events than Tufts, and morover, she was on her own ground. Rhode Island in fact won but two events .the shot put by Palmer and the low hurdles by Clark. The closest race of the meet was in the half mile run in which Wentworth, N. II., was leading by thirty yards until two hundred yards from the finish, when in a terriffic spurt, Greenha ' lgh, R. 1.. forced the pace and failed to win by a scant foot. The two-twenty was likewise closely contested, the three men finish- ing in a bunch. The high jump was a walk away for New Hampshire for not one Rhode Island man qualified. ffi te (Bmt of the 24 tj Class (Tufts iKrrt at Kingston TUFTS 66 — RHODE ISLAND 51 100 yd. Dash 1st, Wood, R.

A week later, however, they lost to Vermont by one foot at the R. A. A. games, Boston. Gardner led for Rhode Island against M. A. C. and though he was forced to (lodge a pair of amateur officials, managed to hand a lead of two yards to Kim- ball, who was able to hold his own for a lap. hut Capt. Russell of M. A. C. was too strong for him, so he was passed, losing two yards. Capt. Greenhalgh then “showed something " and passed his man before the first bank, passing the baton on to Wood with a lead of five yards. Wood held his own easily and won in one of the fast times of the meet. Vermont looked beaten after Gardiner opened a lead of three yards and Kim- ball stretched it to five after which Wood held his own, but then Capt. Greenhalgh met a tartar in Palmer of Vermont. This man quickly caught Greenhalgh on the first lap, but was forced to drop back and trailed until the last lap when he again challenged Greenhalgh and after a terrific spurt to the finish he barely beat our captain in one of the closest races of the evening. 58 BASKETBALL TEAM Rhode island jSfate Colle ge] uhr lUlli Saakptball rasnn Basketball was instituted as a ' varsity sport after a period of two years during which there was no win.er sport. Consid- erable difficulty was experienced by the manager in arranging his schedule owing to the fact that many colleges have aban- doned basketball as an intercollegiate sport. After several weeks of practice, the team met Fort ' Adams, and, after a hard fought battle, Rhode Island won by the score of 28 to 27. Malloy and Jones shot the most baskets while Le Boeuf played a strong defensive game, Rhode Island led in the first half by 22 to 6, but the Army lads woke up in the second half and made nineteen points to our nine. Rhode Island lost its second game to Wesleyan, the Xew England champion basketball team, December 15th on the lat- ter’s own court by the score of 48 to 18. The game was fast despite the score and the blame for the defeat can be laid to inac- ruraev in shooting. Everv man played his hardest and held the fast and heavy Wes- leyan team to a small score in the second half, but the lead of 23 points in the first half made the score large. On January 15th, Rhode Island played the Newport Naval Training Station on their own floor. Here again, the score was close, 33 to 31. The game was fast in all its stages and as hard as the score indicates. Capt. Lawrence and Jones were the heavy scorers for Rhode Island. On February lltli the ' varsity re- peated its win over the Naval Station by the score of 28 to 23. Rhode Island swallowed a bitter pill in the form of a defeat at the hands of New Hampshire State by the score of 31 to 16. The game, which was played at Durham, showed Rhode Island to be outplayed, but every man gave all that was in him and fought hard until the last. February 22nd the ' varsity played at Storrs and were defeated by Connecticut by a score of 39 to 11. Connecticut put up a furious battle and played Rhode Island off their feet. As in the Wesleyan game, the scoring was done in the first half. In the second half Connecticut scored but eight points, while Rhode Island scored five. CAPT LAWRENCE 61 fcfc ie (Brist of the 20 Class The team played a return game with Connecticut on February 26 at Kingston. Rhode Island was beaten by the score of 26 to 18. The game was lost by fouls as the home team shot more baskets than the men from Storrs Connecticut opened up the throttle and scored a foul the first minute of play. Rhode Island came back with a basket and the game advanced wi h considerable excitement and with the winner in doubt until the last minute of play. On March 4th, New Hampshire won again by a score of 23 to 12, thus giving Rhode Island the second defeat of the season o:i its own floor. New Hampshire started with a succession of baskets and scored 17 points in the first half and could score but six in the last half. Capt. Lawrence, Le Boeuf, Trimble, and Wansker starred for Rhode Island.

Meetings are con- ducted by the students and an outside speaker is obtained for each meeting. Also during the past year, meetings have been held as often as was convenient and some very good speakers were heard, including Ted Mercer and Mr. A. E. Andrews of Newport. The work of the association has improved and the out- look for its upbuilding is bright. 100 Rhode Island jState Colle ge] f}||§ vmca E. Elizabeth Meears President Clara M iller Vice-President Elisabeth Kelly Treasurer Ruth W. Chandler Secretary In 1915-16 the Young Woman’s Christian Union has been very active. There have been regular meetings every Tuesday night in charge of different members of the Faculty and the girls themselves. The annual reception to the Freshmen was given in September with the aid of the Y. M. C. A. For the past two years the girls have sold the Red Cross Christmas stamps. In the spring, the annual play was given in Lippitt Hall, the proceeds being spent for buying new furniture for the social room of Davis Hall. The informal teas, which have been given this year by groups of girls have proved to be a social success. 101 Clifford M. Rice President H. Arthur Bartels Vice-President Ashbel R. Welles Secretary Homer R. Rowell • Treasurer The Agricultural Club of the Rhode Island State College was founded in 1907 by a number of the more ambitious students. In the fall of that year the club became affiliated with the New England Federation of Agriculture Students, and since then the progress has been rapid. The club has representatives in the various judging contests held throughout New England, and an enviable record has been attained. The past year has been the most successful that the club has experienced. Weekly meetings have been held, at which faculty members and practical agriculturalists have spoken. Interesting discussions among the mem- bers have enabled them to grasp the difficulties of many perplexing problems. The range of subjects covered is wide and enables those in the different branches of the study to understand their particular work. 102 Rhode Jgland ffitate Colle ge [ ELECTRICAL HhnOr Sslatth Statr £ullrgr Sranrh Charles E. Seifert President PhinEas M. Randall Vice-President Frank A. Faron Secretary Thomas F. Victory Treasurer The Society of Electrical Engineers was organized and was in existence as a local organization for several years. Then it became affiliated with the A. I. E. E. Meetings are held frequently and papers are presented by different students. The subjects treated are in reference to great electrical problems of the day. The proceedings of the national organization are sometimes discussed. 103 (j3risf of the 24 Class George E. Field Chairman Clarence H. Parker ...Secretary Theose E. Tillinghast Treasurer The Society of Mechanical Engineers was founded February 17, 1915. In- terest was rather on ihe wane until the present year, when the society was re- organized. Weekly meetings are held, at which papers are presented by t;he student members. Current topics in reference to the mechanical engineering world are also read. The society has not as yet become affiliated wi.h the na- tional organization, but this step may be taken after the club is older. Besides the instruction obtained from at. ending the meetings, credit may be obtained by Juniors and Seniors in Seminar, providing a copy of the report be left with the club and another copy with the professor in charge of the above mentioned course. 104 Rhode Jglaud jState Colle t ] Thomas V. Freeman President Francis G. Py ne Vice-President James H. Williamson Secretary Albert E. McIntosh Treasurer The Society of Civil Engineers is a new institution at the college, having been founded during the past year. The object of the association is to keep the mem- bers informed on the progress of the civil engineering world. The papers that have been presented up to the present time have been the work of students and professors, but in the future outside speakers will be obtained to speak on various important phases of civil engineering. The club is still in its infancy, but shows promise of fulfilling a need of the C. E. student. 105 6rist of the 20 £lass CHEMICAL SOCIETY Ambrose R. Chantler • President H. Kenneth Wilder A icc-President William E. Gillis Secretary Professor Francis H. Smith • Treasurer The Chemical Society was organized in the fall of 1915 for the purpose of stimulating greater interest in the science of chemistry, and its practical application, and for leading students to a greater appreciation of the vast importance of rliis science to mankind. Technical papers are prepared of the vast importance of this the regular bi-weekly meetings. It is planned to procure prominent chemists who are engaged in the field of Applied or Industrial Chemistry. The society has or- ganized an employment committee for the purpose of aiding graduates and students in obtaining employment in connection with various branches of the chemical industry and research work. Although yet in its infancy, the or- ganization has proved itself to be a thriving one, and great hopes are held for its future welfare. 106 01|? Satialum tBattalimt (Siiuiuuinftant Captain W. E.

Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: It is with feelings of no comunion that I rise, at this propritous occasion, to prove to you absolutely and conclusively that bread and butter should be free for all. It must be so. Let us analyze the question from a physical standpoint Er Butter is made from grass, for, cows eat grass, cows give milk, milk is made into butter. Therefore, butter is made from grass. Now, grass, according to Pappus’s Theorem, is “couchant et levant,” id est, grass is free for all. Now, if grass is free for all and butter is made from grass, then butter should be free for all. It should ! It should ! I say it should. I know I have proved the question beyond any question of microscopic doubt, but to cap the climax. I’ll bring forth an uncontrovertible and unassailable argument that will convince everyone that I am right in everything I say. Butter, ladies and gentle- men, is grease and Greece is a country of Europe. Shall it be said that Greece, a country of Europe, is not free for all? Oh tempore! Oh mores! it can ' t be so. It is as I say. Moreover, since butter is free for all, what butter comes on must be free, or else, how are you going to get the butter? Since butter comes on bread and since what butter comes on should be free, therefore bread should be free. Therefore, since I have proved that butter should be free, since I have proved that bread should be free and since I am a great deal smarter than anyone else here, even the judges themselves, I must have proved that bread and butter is free for all.

He presents twenty-two B. L. tags for admission, and has long argument with Prexy over shortage in en- trance credits. Joe agrees to get remaining number of tags, and is admitted.

Paul Mall sells three books to the secretary. Prexy expels Velvet and Prince Al. Duchess and Duke weep oil each other’s shoulder blades. Lord Sal bails out the office. Fat Emma dances in her distinctly individual way. Everyone sings : “My sister is a dressmaker, She surely beats the cars. She’s now designing wrappers For the B and E cigars.” Actors disappear in a cloud of smoke. The scene was matchless. N. B. Author is in employ of the Tobacco Trust. It was a Rainy Day.

They squeal in fear dyspeptic at the leather and the hay, For when steak is served and spinach it is never known to fail, — The female of the species is more fussy than the male. She will up her nose and whimper of the feeds she left behind, And a thousand morbid notions of a chef who is unkind. At beef and spuds and cabbage she will rave and rant and rail, For the female of the species is more fussy than the male. Came a time when teeth of sugar craved the taste of escargots. Champignons with truffles sloughing, pattc de foi gras, and so To the Inn they flocked selectly, putting others in the pale. For the female of the species is more fussy than the male. In the morning, in the noon-time, in the evening grind the feet On the walk to that dear road-house where one gets good things to eat, Ploughs the little band of females through the snow and slush and hail ; Theirs is true a joyous journey, for they’re huskier than the male. Joy of living! Visions lovely! Hand us out the table d’ho.e! We like to eat the stuff o ' er which the gastronomists gloat ; But for hiking to the village once and twice and thrice again, We’ll sure hand it to the ladies — they have got it on us men. We have seen some hefty women lifting up a ton or two In our childhood joy the circus which we always loved to view: — Kipling surely said a mouthful when he penned his famous tale.

Rounded on the outside by a thin shell much like choice Japanese porcelain minus the glofcs, it is filled with a viscid mess which might be used either as glue, food, or disin- fectant. It has been said that one hoary egg suddenly deprived of its kiniona in a room will immediately remove or kill any obnoxious person present. Eggs may be eaten in a variety of ways, but since most of us cannot afford more than one egg a month it is well to save ' em and show ’em to our friends, thereby creating an impression of prosperity. Perhaps the most expensive eggs are those cultivated by the bacteriologist at the college here. We have been told that a dozen or so of these choice articles cost four young men ten dollars apiece, or about $3.33 per egg. If this is true, we have naught but reproof for a man who would deliberately cough up more than $2 for an egg. In cases of necessity, however, it is not objectionable for one to expend such a sum, particularly in the presence of the majesty of the law. By the foregoing facts, we believe we have at last arrived at an explanation of why men are fined so highly for chicken stealing. . A hen is a valuable asset and the loss of one may mean anything from $2 to $75 a day. Thus, if a man swipes one hen. he is robbing his neighbor of from $730 to $27,375 a year. It is probable, then, that an egg may at that mount to such a figure as $3.33, provided it imprisons a she-chicken. 129 ( 3rist of the 20 Class Lanza: — You understand, fellows, you ' re not supposed to use any books, notes, or — Hughey: — Can we use a slide rule? Tillie: — No, a pencil is as far as you can go. Speaking to Groves, Miller ’15 sprung the following one day and got away with it: If your name were Fearn, they ' d call you Redfern. LL Gates returns to campus, meets Tip who asks him what he intends to do. Gates (sad wag of bean) : — I think I’ll come back and start my college course all over again. Tip (peeved) : — Good! You may learn something this time. Whadd’ ye Mean, Wind? Pa Webster : — The fact is, gentlemen, the engineering profession is all up in the air on the subject of wind. Turkey: — Well, how would you do that? Lanza: — In this case, you can either use the Calculus or else your common sense. Cohen (sotto voce): — Better use the Calc. Freshman : — Guess I’ll go in and study; I’ve got to fix up my room., make the bed, and write some letters. Soph : — What are you taking — a course in Home Econom ics? Junior Philosophy. Life is one d thing af.er another: Thermo after Mechanics. It is claimed that Ruff would miss Rill, should he fight for the Fatherland, but it is certain that the Allies would not. “In tempting the freshmen to break the rules, the Coeds may be likened unto Eve.” lit tit, Prcxc? Bun Churchill (reading): — “Gent’s wear pants.” What’s wrong with that? Count: — “Gents” is poor form. Bud: — Yes, how about the rest? C. : — The rest is unnecessary. 130 Rhode island jSfate (£otle cfe] Gllff iSaue-(0n On the field of strife and battle, ’mid the noises and the rattle, Toil the nurses and the surgeons at a great and humane call. While the shells are swiftly flying and the warriors lie dying — Save your tears, there ' s no use crying — It’s a football game, that ' s all. Just a football game, that’s all. Oh how clearly we remember that third Monday in November, When each maimed and crippled freshman lay there covered o’er with gore, Eagerly we watch the players, then we offer up our prayers, While die Sophs pile them in layers, meanwhile piling up the score, Only this, and nothing more. Then we glance up toward the East. Is it woman, man or beast? Such a quaint and curious spectre that makes up the lowly train. It is Andy and old Vic; stretcher, shovel, saw and pick Ge.ting ready for the sick, and all those who are in pain, Whom they treat with great attention, they are kind and so humane, That I think they ' re not quite sane. All the Coeds s arted blushing, for a concentrated rushing Hid from view a husky Soph ' more (We will not divulge his name). Rope had always been a gent, sir, but he had incurred a rent, sir, A novelty not meant, sir, to happen in the game. Then the Red Cross to the rescue silently and bravely came, Theirs is honor, praise and fame. Then a dandy little player, we ' ll admit he was a bear, Tried to show our I’.ig Jim Baldwin just what all the new rules meant. Torgan surely thought he knew it. He said: “Just vou let me do it. Stand there now and gladly view it. Coach will feel like half a cent. " Just imagine how Torg landed, he received an awful dent. Off the field he quickly ' went. " I will smash your evil iniaee " comes a voice from out the scrimmage. It is evident there ' s something that is radically wrong. It is Cook and little Freddie, who is always rough and ready, lust like our perfect Teddy, who is wonderfully strong, But the argument was halted for the Coach then came along, Here we praise him in our song. 131 d3mt of the 20 Class Now and then the freshmen sprinted, it was even frankly hinted That they ' d be the happy victors e ' er the fateful day were done. All the Freshies make a sally, trying fitrcely for a tally. In defense they vainly rally, still the Sophs keep on the run Till they have a baker ' s dozen, and the freshmen — they have none. At the setting of the sun. Call: — Hey, Count, what did you get in the Physics Quizz? Count: — Ninety; who did you sit side of? Siie Tried SO Hard.

Selection of the Fussee : The first thing to remember is always to pick out the prettiest girl. You will not be able to get a prelty one, but be sure to get the prettiest one because Yeast Hall is a very good place from which every man you know can pipe you off and later kid you about her. The Walk Across the Campus : Having managed to overcome dinner before she does, plant yourself nonchalantly on the steps of Yeast Hall and do vour best to escape a pail of water while waiting for the subject to come out. When she comes out and greets you with a superior smile, grin back, wait until she starts down the stairs, give a co-conspirator a knowing wink and go get her. After this it is easy sailing. Remember, always wear a futurist tie, for you can point to one of the colors and tell her you “knew she was going to wear that color.” She’ll come back with “Great minds run in the same channel. " You’ll tell her about “two hearts tha t . . By this time, you should be at Davis. Go in and hang around for the mail. Of course, you know that the mail went up to the house, but hang around anyway. It takes “Ma” a long time to eat. Meanwhile, you can carry on a brilliant conversation — very brilliant. The Rendezvous: Of course, you’ll have to be in the library the next day and qui.e by chance (an absolute accident of course), she’ll be there, too. Do you remember anything about logs? No, you don’t remember, but don’t tell her so. Say something. She won’t understand, but ' she won’t want to have you think her stupid, so she’ll pretend to know. A good way to square yourself is to find out when she has chem. lab. and go in there looking for Doc Leighton. Of course you know Doc isn’t in the lab. on those days. She doesn’t think you know so much. If she is doing a hard experiment that you can’t do, leave at once, saying you must find the old boy. If she is doing an easy experiment and one that you think you can shine on, do it for her in your most graceful manner. She’ll appre- ciate it. By this time you should know enough about your subject to use your judg- ment in your actions. When in doubt, watch the upper classmen and see how they do it. By watching them, you should become proficient in a very short time. 133 6rtst of the 24 tb Class iPntntrrs to IFrrBlimru 1. Nix on the Coeds. Give the poor upperclassmen a chance. 2.

Perhaps no facial blemish is so popular with the rah rah boys as a moustache. Even the old and respected occular decoration of that in- describable purple tinge has been superseded by this emblem of maturity. How proud the owner of a moustache in the embryonic stage feels when a friend first comments on the adventitous out-growth. How he thrills when the wily barber inquires solicitously whether or not he desires the top lip to remain un- shorn. When he makes his first appearance in Home- burg at midyears he imagines himself the cynosure of admiring and even envious glances as he strokes the neweyebrow with that I-knew-it-was-there gesture that came only after patient, persevering practice be- fore the mirror. Every one will agree that a moustache is indica- tive of great courage. Scan the illustrious counte- nances of the past and present heroes. Do we not find their physiognomies devoid of razor reminiscences on the top lip? Caesar wore a moustache, if we may believe the testimonials of the Coaxit Company. And Caesar was an honorable man. Yet we must not condemn a young man for aspiring to the possession of a hirsute append- age. These young men may he rational in every way and still maintain that one of the popular microbe- rendezvous adds to his distingue appearance. We should be kindly disposed toward the possessor of these fungus-like growth and allow him to remain in blissful ignorance of the disparaging remarks cast by envious contemporaries. 135 ffiie 6mt of the 24 £lass ulhr (Sriats arr (Dut The poor old purse of ours ye mind, Is frail and failing sair; And well I ken we’ll miss it, lad, Gin it fill up nae mair.

Ask Yourself Where can I obtain it? “Who’s Who in America” contains the names of 9,643 markedly successful persons — representative list from all lines of American effort. Note the following deductions — of 12 million beginning life, 9,643 markedly successful. Of these, 7,676 markedly successful are from 135,000 with a college education; of these, 1,967 markedly successful are from 11,800,000 without a college education. That is with a college education your chance for marked success is 1 in 8; without a college education your chance is 1 in 6,000. 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 educa- tion to increase your chances of success 350 times. Is it not worth while to take the opportunity? Can four years be more profitably spent? Instruction at Rhode Island State College is free of cost; instruction at Rhode Island State College is of high grade. See estimate of catalogue as to expenses; see report of Commission of Inquiry (1909) as to grade of work. The College has courses for men and women. Its agricultural courses prepare high school men and women for Agricultural Practice, Agricultural Investigation, Agricultural Teaching. Its engineering courses prepare high school men for Engineering Practice, Engineering Teaching, Engineering Work. Its applied-science course prepares men and women for Scientific Investigation, Scientific Administration, Scientific Teaching.
