Newport Rumford of tfie xxv i j ffajs ®br ijiatort) nf Ninrtmt-S’nifutmt The history of Seventeen Begins when we were Freshies green. ’Twas on a bright September day That we did wend our weary way To register with the President. Th e Student Council’s force we felt, For to each Neophyte was dealt A poster blue with counsel wise, Fifteen cents and many sighs. Now “Thou shalt” be a resident. Our scores in football and in track Made our outlook mighty black. Our fortunes turned in basketball — The Sophomores couldn’t play at all. Our Freshman year had shown our worth. As Sophs we met the college sieve. But to each college sport did give Someone to represent us well, As our athletic records tell. We now could claim a place on earth. Our Junior Prom was a grand success, And to debate and the Beacon, no less, Some literary gems we lent, Which shows we were on records bent. One more year decides our fate. Our Senior year is going fast. The day is coming when at last Commencement and the pang of parting Remind us that we’re only starting. Auf wiedersehen, Rhode Island State 22 CElir (Class nf 1018 Smuirarp jflrmbrr Professor Lester Wells Boardman (Offtrrrs Harold Quentin Moore President Dorothy Estelle Haskeli Pice-President Charles Elwyn Lermond Secretary Albert Rosaire Mayer Treasurer (Class isto ri| In the beginning there was a class. And this class was full of “pep.” And it was known as the Class of Nineteen-Eighteen. And as a class we developed strong college spirit and varsity material. And the varsity teams profited thereby. And as early as November of the first year we won the distinction of being the first Freshman Class to defeat the Sophs in a track meet. 25 Gfie Grift ft, tfie xxv Cjfta s Class Stslnry — Continued. And the second year came around to find us diminished in numbers but still filled with Rhodv spirit. And by way of repetition it became necessary for us to subdue the incoming class in the annual track meet. And then to show them that the victory was no mistake we made them bow to us once more, this time in foot- ball. And the Soph Hop was carried to a most successful finale. And we grew in wisdom as the third year approached. And when the third year came, this class no longer was eligible to take part in the lower class games. And it maintained its prestige by coaching its kid brothers in the athletic art, by adding to its contribution of varsity material. And this class continued to preserve its reputation of the first two years and was a credit to itself and the College of Rhode Island State. Boat House at Thirty Acre 26 Henry Barton, Jr., 0 X Bristol, R. I. “Goose” “Bart” Civil Engineering Class Hockey, (i), (’); Tennis Team (l); Vice-President C. E. Society (3); Polygon (3) Treasurer Lecture Association (3) Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); Grist Board (3). Henry Barton, Jr., of Bristol, dancing master and tennis cham- pion. “Goose” takes most pleasure in sleeping and it is not unusual to find him still in bed at noon. “Too much sleep can’t hurt any- one,” Goose says. If it did he ' d have been afflicted long ago. How- ever, Henry enjoys “socking” his studies so that he can laugh at the rest of us studying for finals. When Mechanics problems aren’t on his mind he passes his time away by “pounding the ivories.” As a tennis player he’s “there.” During the summer when not sleeping he decides to win just another cup or championship and he does, too. Wakefield still has its charms for H. B., Jr., for dancing is his hobby and he is quite proficient in the art. We expect great things of “Goose” in the " Civil” world. Nelson Everett Blake, A X A Wallingford, Conn. “Peanut” “Nell” Chemical Engineering Class Baseball (1); Class Hockey (l). (2); Scholastic Honors (1), (2); Glee Club (1), (2), (3); Leader (5); Quartette (2), (3); Varsity Tennis (2); Manager of Class Tennis (1); Vice-President Chemical Society (3); Corporal (3); Grist Board (3); Editorial Board Rhode Island Song Book (3); Junior Prom Committee (3). Folks, this is our handsome delegate from the “Spoon City.” From his first day here he has been a bear with “the wimmen”. His popularity and winning ways secured for him the distinction of being the first nineteen-eighteen delegate to a Student Council Meeting — as one of the principals. “Li’l N’el” was a (Wakefield) trail hitter long before the eminent Rev. Sunday struck these parts. Lately he has been looking for a “lack of blonde.” Besides being somewhat of a fusscr, “Pean” has managed to dis- tinguish himself as a student. We expect to hear of him filling out Mendeljeff’s Tables. Watch him! Melvin Hazard Brightman, B f» Edgewood, R. I. “Mel” “Bright” Agriculture Manager Class Football (1); Class Football (1); Varsity Football Squad (1); Varsity Football (2); Sophomore Hop Committee (2); First Sergeant (3); Polygon (3). Pause a moment! Here we have the sweet young thing. “Bright” came to Rhode Island to take the Aggie course, but this was soon superseded by his favorite subjects, automobiles and the ladies. If there is anything that you want to know, “Bright” can tell you all about it and a few not ches more. His favorite indoor sport is to hold a post-mortem after every hand in a game of cards. However, this is natural to a man with “Bright’s line,” and we must not hold it against him. “Mel” will probably succeed as a manufacturer of fertilizer, as he has already invented a new measure for the stuff. 27 ?ijt of tfie xxv ($ Cafs Roy Porter Call, A X A Lynn, Mass. “Squire” “Ike” “Callie” Applied Science Class Football (i), (2); Varsity Football (3); Class Basketball (1), (2); Class Baseball (1), (2); Manager (2). Hark! His Dignity the Squire enters. Behold the individualistic hair trim! “Ike” manages to have the barber give him ether once each week after devouring his noon-meal in an effort to beat the rest of “de gang” to the chair. Folks in romantic East Lynn (e) shed many tears when Roy en- trained for Kingston, in search of an “eddication.” So far his chief aim has been to make a place on the Heliograph Squad. Having reached the height of his ambition, the field of science is open for his remarkable discoveries in Biological Research (?). “Ike” is somewhat of an athlete. The fact is he would rather get mauled on the football field or the basketball floor than win a game of whist. As far as the females arc concerned, “Ike” declares he is uninter- ested. The fact is that he has already given his heart to a fair one in far-off Canada. Lorne Atwood Cameron, 0 X Dorchester, Mass. “Cammic” Agriculture Class Hockey (1), (2); Class Track (1), (2); Corporal (3). “Cammic’s” chief characteristic is his ability as a musician, both as a singer and pianist. When he sings (?), it is remarkable the way he keeps the same pitch throughout. He can’t change it, no matter how he tries. Sometimes he plays his own accompaniments (which go very well with his voice), and then the sound is almost unbear- able. It is hardly expected that “Cammie” will be heard from in the football world, but he has shown his worth in class events, both hockey and track. “Cammic” formerly “hit the line” quite frequently, but the “sweet” attractions in Wakefield have been displaced this year by a Donald Elsworth Carlton, P I K E. Providence, R. I. “Shrimp” “Runt” “Don” Agriculture Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); Soph Hop Committee (2); Assistant Manager Baseball (3). “Runt” is another of the East Providence “giants.” Although studiously inclined he spends the greater part of his time trying to show the engineers the folly of their choice of courses. The Aggie war-cry, however, is heard no more s ince “Shrimp” “hit the shower.” His chief pastime is working in the Day-ree-lab, especially on in- spection day. Don journeys to Providence, occasionally, takes in Rhodes’, and returns prepared to “knock ’em dead” with a few terpsichorcan evo- lutions. One of Don’s college acquisitions is his educated walk. This was acquired only after diligent effort and the pursuit of well defined routine while carrying around a small clock for ballast. His fame in Farm Accounts and Landscape Gardening is sure to win him dis- tinction. 28 Ruth Westlake Chandler Providence, R. I. “Ruthic” “Westy” Home Economics Secretary Y. V. C. U. (2); President Y. W. C. U. (3). Love is “Sweet” (as the saying goes) Better ask Ruth, for she really knows. Full of spirit and fun, Ruth entered R. I. after having most suc- cessfully completed a course at Classical High School. Dancing seems to be her favorite pastime, and “out-of-town” festivities often call her from our midst. Ruth goes from the frivolous to the serious, due to a certain religious influence radiating from a distant city. Ye can’t quite picture Ruth as a calm and placid Sunday-school teacher, but with her vocalistic powers she will make a splendid choir leader. Tho’ her time is well filled, Ruth, cither through study or natural ability, is an excellent student; and unless she succumbs to nervous- ness or hysteria we predict a B. S. degree and a long, happy life in a “model” rectory. John Jerome Condon, A X A “Bunny” “Jeff” Here he is, gentlemen and ladies, Bristol’s famous humorist. While John admits that he is funny he confesses that he is going to be a reputable chemist. John first distinguished himself by an analysis of gasoline one dark night on the road to Wakefield. That was when he was young, however. Now he prefers to stay at home Friday nights and tell about the “swell stuff” in the city (Bristol). Another favorite story is of the time he invented that popular game known as “Johnny, gimme dat pie!” We have often suspected “Bunny” of being the head of a great international detective bureau, for tvhat he doesn’t know, from the workings of President Wilson’s inner mind to the latest scandal in Davis, isn’t worth knowing. We hand it to you “Bun.” Wrap it up! Bristol, R. I. Chemical Engineering Sarah Eli7abeth Coyne, X T A Providence, R. I. “Sally " “Sal” Home Economics “For it ' s always good weather when good fellows get together.” Here she is! “Sally” is her name — always in the right place at the right time. “Sally” was first recognized as a tennis expert early in her Freshman year. Her fondness forthesport is not a bit lessened even when off the courts. (“ Ia” will vouch for that). She has always shown ability to get lessons without much probing. This accounts for her frequent saying, “Haven’t cracked a book, yet.” Unless we arc mistaken, the educational world is due for a shock. We prophesy the appearance of a literary masterpiece, entitled “Getting By — Simplified. " “Sally’s " favorite melody is the old one, “Love. It Is Young, but Love, It IsPain(c)ful.” 29 rift of tfie xxv ( Cafs John William Cruickshank, B $ Providence, R. I. “Jack” “Crook” “J. W. " Civil Engineering Class Football (l), (2); Corporal (2); First Sergeant (3). “Hey, Buddy, gimme a cigarette!” Of course, you’ve heard this from J. W., otherwise known as “Crook, the embryonic general.” When it comes to that form of oratory known as “a la Mexicana,” he has them all stopped. Where the weaker sex are concerned, John is right at home. We all place our hopes in Jack to construct a car line from here to Wakefield, if he would do his profession as a C. E., justice. As the supreme optimist, “Crook” takes the cake. “Just flunked a physics test, I knew everything on the subject — but — ” “If he’d given me a test like that yesterday I’d have ‘hit it for a goal.’” These are only a few of his many remarks, but he has our best wishes despite his eccentricities. Charles Davies Dalzell, A X A So. Boston, Mass. “Dal” “Charlie” Agriculture Class Debating (1); Varsity Debating (2); Vice-President Debating Society (3); Drum-Major (4). This campus parasite is an Aggie of the first water and blew in from Wakefield, Mass., in the early fourteens. When you talk about his home town always add the Mass., or there’ll be the dickens to pay! “Dal” first got in the public gaze by making the Varsity debating team. He always did like to pass the Bull. In fact, Bull Durham’s his favorite smoke. When Walsh is around, however, he puts a ton or so of pathos in his request, and then smokes “Straights.” Besides playing the piano, he sings. He makes one think of a nightingale — he’s so vastly different. But we all have our failings, so why pick on the Dutchman? In love, “Dal” was caught only once. When she (a Quaker, by the way) up and married another, our hero put up his good right elbow and swore between puffs, “Never, The boy’s ambitions lie in the Aggie field, with agronomy his specialty, and when his pipe’s alight and sails aset there’ll be no stopping the fiend ’til the goal is reached. John Lachlan Daneker, P I K Cranston, R. I. “Jacque” “The Little Duke” Electrical Engineering Class Track (1), (2); Grist Board (3); Corporal (2), (3); Circula- tion Manager of Beacon (2). Cranston is responsible for this addition. He came to us an immaculate youth, radiating cleanliness and “class” from the tip of his polished boots to the top of his perfect derby. Since matriculat- ing, the college has been forced to drill two artesian wells to supply water enough for “Lilie de l’eau’s” three-a-day baths. As a philosopher he has no equal. “I don’t believe a fellow in college should have a girl, but if he wants to ‘beat it ’round’ with a ‘Jane’ that’s his hard luck. On the other hand, if a feller is t’get married he ought to do it while young so’s to have a long time hap- piness,” says John. He spent part of his Sophomore year as a woolen merchant, but the call of Old Kingston was stronger than that of the world, so he returned with a purpose and is now setting an honorable pace as a student. 30 Walter Brighton Davis Middletown, Conn. “Red” Chemical Engineering Corporal (2); Assistant Manager Football (3); Sergeant (3). In September. 1913, “Red” came into our midstand began his career as a student. One of his special studies is German and none of his classmates will dispute that fact. He is also a worthy “spreader” in the Debating Class. After two years of peaceful (?) dormitory life he removed to the village so that his hours of beaut ' - sleep would not be disturbed. This last named ailing, if we may call it such, is probably responsible for his occasional trips to a Xew York Hospital. We don’t know an- other reason, but we can venture a guess, at least. If “Red’s” managership can be judged by his work as assistant, we may be assured that the football team will be well taken care of. We wish him all success when he leaves Kingston, but think it will be to his advantage to leave off the stand-up collar and little- black bow. William Harold Dawson, A A ' F Ashaway, R. I. “Bill” Civil Engineering Class Football (2); Class Baseball (1), (2); Grist Board (3); As- sistant Manager Basketball (3); Btacon Board ( " 3); Class Debating Team (2); Corporal (3). “Bill,” the elongated specimen of humanity from Burrilvillc High School, was thrown off the train at Kingston in the fall of 1914, and he has been with us ever since. In our Freshman year he proved to us by his accuracy in throwing water that he could play base- ball. With his bland, innocent face, “Bill” was seldom suspected, and so it goes! As a fusser, “Bill” excelled in his Sophomore year, but all of his fussing was done from the Social Room window when the “chickens” came for “feed.” Presiding in the East Hall seat of justice was one of “Bill’s” fav- orite duties during his Sophomore year. At our mock trials, the ease with which he could sentence a man to a cold shower showed that he missed his vocation when he took up the Civil Engineering Course. “Bill’s” ambition is to build roads for submarine traffic, but the only obstacle, he says, is the “big drink.” James Joseph Devine, A X A Bridgewater, Mass. “Mickey” “Lasca” Mechanical Engineering Treasurer Mechanical Engineering Society (3); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3). Far away on the plains of Bridgewater in a quiet shady street there once roamed and frolicked the boy whose blue eyes look out at you from the above likeness. His favorite plaything as a child was a monkey-wrench; so when he came to college it was only nat- ural that he should countenance the Mechanical Engineering Course. Hence— Check! “Mickey” never was much of a noise maker, but his resounding slap on the shoulder and his “wha’d’ya doin’’ always announce his presence. Like the proverbial turtle, he isn’t a speed-king, but the long string of A’s and B’s that adorn his scholastic trail are eloquent in their prophecy that Jim’s name will be near the top when the Col- lege Gabriel toots his trumpet on the day of reckoning, in June, 1918. As to the “wimmen,” Jim’s all silence and has the gang guessing, but we all have a sneaking suspicion that some fair Jane at Bridge- water Normal has him tied. As to music — mercy sakes! His one- fingered obligato arias are second only to his favorite recitations, namely, “Lasca” and “Jim Bludsoe.” These two pieces he persists in “ragging” long after the rest of us are in slumberland. But Jim’ll win. You just wait! 31 of tfie xxv ($Cafs Rowland Sever Dodge, P I K Pawtucket, R. I. “Hecker” “Polo” “Seven” Agriculture Class Basketball (i). (2); Class Football (2); Vanity Football (2), (3); Captain-elect Football (3); Corporal (2); Quartermaster- Sergeant (3); Grist Board (3). _ “Hecker, " the Marievillc Bearcat, fought his way into the Class of 1918. When he first arrived here the officials suggested that he try some other place as the mess-hall was temporarily out of Mcllin’s Food. However, he hung around till they let him in and he has proved that he “is there” from the coal shovel to the class-room. “Polo” allows the half of his right eye to glance up the stairs of Davis Hall, but he dare not trust his left foot even on the first step. “Hecker’s” great fear is that he will get lost in the Broadway Subway. Never fear, old man, you will be found. Remember the birthmark! Our football star is a hard worker here at college, which is a great asset to one who expects to spread it broad and thick in the Aggie field. Irma Rathbun Edmiston, 2 T A East Greenwich, R. I. “Irm” “Johnnie” “Kidlums” Home Economics Soph Hop Committee (2); Vice-President (2); 1918 Giust Board. If laughter and feeds make one grow fat, Irma certainly ought to be immense, for when it comes to giving or taking a joke no better sport could be found. And eats! — say did y’ever go over to Irma’s and Sal ' s on a Friday night? On the campus she is known for her good disposition, dancing, aversion to “cat,” ability to ask many and pointed questions in classes, canoeing, and pie-making. In the secret recesses of Davis Hall, add to these — gymnastic stunts, prac- tical jokes, musical ability and hilarious laughter. She is First Lieu- tenant in the Order of Loyal Defenders of the East-Side-of-Davis- Hall, and as such has probably wounded many several persons. When her quick ear detects the footfall of a marauder on the gravel below, it is said that she seizes the weapon nearest at hand. Many a good glass of jelly, can of chicken or box of crackers has been lost to Davis Hall in just that way. When interviewed in regard to her attitude on campus affairs, the following signed statement was obtained from her. “Variety is the spice of life.” George Henry Fairbanks, A X A Central Falls, R. I. “Jinny” “Fair” El ectrical Engineering Corporal Wireless Corps (3). “Jinny” bids fair to become one of our foremost politicians, and as it looks now E. E. will be a sideline. Nothing can get by our youthful “William Jennings.” Influence is his watchword. He is a faithful follower of the art made famous by Vernon Castle. His chief difficulty seems to be enticing one of the opposite sex to the dances. “One in seven is good enough for me,” says Fair. George is a student of no mean ability, and his curl which is so prominent has been carefully trained while “doping out” the many problems distributed by “Lanza.” He is serious in all he undertakes, and we trust his efforts along his chosen path will not be unrewarded. 32 George Howard Fleck, A A ' P Providence, R. I. “George” “Flecky” Electrical Engineering Class Basketball (2); Class Track (1); President R. 1 . B. A. A. (3); Class Baseball (1); Soph Hop Committee (2); Class Football (2). After graduating from Technical High School, George decided to enter R. I. The fall of 1914 found him trying to elbow his way to the registration officer. He succeeded and here he is. George is there as a fusser. He belongs to the local team and is an active member of the club in Wakefield. Why our friend didn’t join the Glee Club is a mystery. He pos- sesses a voice that would do justice to Caruso. His melodious voice has affected many a would-be student, in East Hall, to such an ex- tent that he was a fit candidate for the “nut foundry. George is an all-around athlete and excels in all class events. Studies never trouble him, although he did make a little fuss over Chem. 1. When not presiding at a B. A. A. Meeting he will always be found studiously in the theory of Electrical Engineering. “Flecky” has a smile that is contagious — circumstantial evidence of good nature. We wish you luck, George. Harold A. Gardner, P I K Phoenix, R. I. “Larry” “Yegg” Applied Science Relay Team ( ij,(2); Track Squad ( 1 ), (2); Freshman Relay Team. This diminutive object is a product of Phoenix. He matriculated as a “Short Horn,” but soon learned that to win laurels on the “Cin- ders” or “Boards,” he had to be a “regler guy.” So after his first half year he quit the “biennials.” The speed of Mercury is as naught compared with “Larry’s.” As a member of the Relay Team and Track Teams he easily won his coveted laurels. In spite of his track training, “Larry” decided that cows and chickens were hard to chase, and gave up his Aggie aspirations. As a student, “Yegg” is serious, alert, conscientious and consist- ent. His varied education fits him for the world. Be the work “chicken chasing” or otherwise we expect him to be with the leaders at the tape. We can only wish him a golden future. Lester Davis Groves Hope, R. I. “Red” Agriculture “Red” is one of the few that we have been unable to get anything on. He is one of our quiet fellows who keeps to himself. Originating where there is Hope, he has hopes of passing Aggie Chem; of beating his roommate at cards, and that “she” loves him as much as ever. “Red” entertains literary ambitions. He doesn’t want to write a novel, but prefers rather to follow in the footsteps of George Ade. Quite decided is he in some of his opinions. He does not believe in early marriages. Consequently, he vigorously asserts that he will not join the benedicts until he is twenty-one. 33 rijt of tfie xxv ($faf Charles William Haggerty, A X A Allentown, R. I. “Charlie” “Fogarty” “Blanche” Electrical Engineering Charlie has only one ambition in this life besides being an elec- trical engineer, that is to marry a certain young damsel who lives about eight miles from our hero. In fact, if Charlie intends to spend an evening with his fair one he has to start for her house at six o’clock. But give him credit, boys, if he has nerve enough to go through the ceremony he deserves our sympathy. “When “Fogarty” first arrived here he made himself known in mathematics and has been keeping up the good “rep” ever since. He is some baseball player, too, as is evidenced by his consistent work in the “frat” games. We wish you the best, Charlie, in all your attempts at a degree — be it engineering or matrimony. Dorothy Estelle Haskell, 2 T A W. Barrington, R.I. “Dot” “Dink” Home Economics Class Vice-President (3). This is our prim, demure little girl who is the “shining light” of the 1918 Class. No one would dream that behind that baby face there is a straight “A” grade. Between studies, “Boob” and “Mum” Dot hasn ' t much time for Davis Hall mischief. She is, however, well liked and full of fun. X. V. Z. found her a game sport and made her a worthy member. She is some athlete, too, especially when it comes to scrapping and pinching (and shall we add pulling hair?). She is already a noteworthy “Bugologist,” and soon will have all known germs trained and educated. Patrick Charles Henry, A X A Providence, R. I. “Pat” “P. C.” Electrical Engineering Freshman Orchestra; Class Baseball (1), (2); Manager Class Base- ball (2); College Orchestra (2), (3). Ladies and gentlemen, this piece of the Lord’s handiwork that you see in the attached photo was first discovered in the summer of 1914 taking good nickels from the people of Providence on board of one of the Rhode Island Co’s. cars. To this day his high staccato “fares, please!” can be heard every Saturday and Sunday on the Rocky Point Special as it dashes from the Union Station to the Point and return. After some tall coaxing the, nickel-grabber was induced to enroll at the ol’ col’ on Kingston Hill. Tickling the ivories is a mania with the conductor, and wherever he is you will find music a-plenty. Pat wanted to take the Aggie Course, but upon finding that he could spread more than the above course could teach him, he up and turned engineer. And so, gents, get your nickels ready- — this car leaves five minutes past the hour. 34 Esther Lee Kinney, 2 T A Kingston, R. I. “Kinney Kid” Home Economics Early in our Freshman year, Esther, due to her happy disposition and smiling face, acquired the name “Kinney Kid. " She was for- given the fact that she had lived all her life in Kingston when we found that she knew but little more than the rest of us concerning college rules. A good time is never complete unless Esther is there to help with the work and fun. Remember the “18” football “feed” at Esther’s? When any of us have felt in need of some home-made food we have offered to “walk home” with the “Kid” in hopes of an invitation to partake of the same. Never have we been disappointed! When Esther finishes her course here she expects to become a teacher of Home Economics in some distant city. Samuel L. Leiboff “Sam” Very few realize the talent that is concealed in the conical-shaped dome of this specimen. He is very proficient as a photographer and chemist. Examples of his photography adorn a few pages of this addition to the hall of fame. If anyone entertains doubts of his abil- ity as a chemist they will be quickly relieved of them by consulting the roll of the May B. Chemists Club where the name of our “Sam” will be found duly inscribed. “Sam” has, also, had excellent (?) success as a cadet. He spends much time instructing his superior officers in the manual of arms and can be easily distinguished by his soldierly bearing. If “Sam” does not succeed as a chemist, he intends to take advantage of the opportunity offered by the Reserve Officers ' Training Corps. Dili- gent effort should qualify him for a commission in the Salvation Army. Charles Elwyn Lermond, A X A E. Providence, R. I. “Chick” “Charlie” “L-Wun " Electrical Engineering Class Baseball (l); Varsity Baseball (i), (2); Class Hockey (1), (2); Manager Class Hockey (2); Sophomore Hop Committee; Scho- lastic Honors (2); Class Secretary (2), (3). After graduating from East Providence High School, “Chick” began his career as a stenographer, but this was no occupation for a man of his ability so he decided to come to R. I. S. C. “Chick” is certainly a “clean-up.” All subjects look alike to him. He can “hit” thermo and mechanics as well as the rest of them. Baseball is his favorite sport. He is at his best when romping around the diamond or getting the “hot-ones” between second and “Charlie’s” only weak point concerns the ladies. He refuses to have anything to do with them, not even so much as to “walk across” once in awhile. If his record after graduation is as brilliant as his past one, there is no cause for worry about his “making good.” 35 rijf of tfie xxv ($Cafi George Edwin Luther, P I K Pawtucket, R. I. “Wheeze” Applied Science Class Football (2); Class Baseball (1), (2); Sophomore Hop Com- mittee (2). Our George wheezed in from Pawtucket with great hopes of be- coming a chemical engineer, but soon was convinced by ‘Tip” to- gether with his general dislike for engineering subjects that the Ap- plied Science Course was the one for him. Although George does not come from a town noted for fishermen he takes many nightly trips down to Thirty Acre, but we soon found out that there were more inducements than fish down there. It’s no use guessing — too evident. Aside from going fishing, George is pretty quiet. He docs a lot of conscientious studying as is shown by his holding the organic chemistry book in his hand all night before a final (he was asleep). He certainly is of the “stick to it variety. " Go to it George, the future has much in store for you. Daniel Joseph Lynch, Jr., P I K Brockton, Mass. “Chick” “Che-ek” “Hurley” Mechanical Engineering Class Baseball (1), (2); Varsity Baseball (1), (2); Glee Club (1). (2); Class Relay (l); Varsity Debating Team (1); Class Debating Team (i); Corporal (2); Student Council (3); Sergeant (3); Grist Board (3). A glimpse at this picture brings to us myriads of thoughts. It brings to memory a Romeo and Juliet scene staged at Davis Hall. Love was not the main theme of this act — it was crackers and jam. This happened only once. No more does the voice of the Irish Tenor ring through the portals of Davis. He claims it was studies, but ask the fireman (Hecker). “Chick’s” high batting average includes not only the horsehide but also studies, and we feel sure that there is a bright future awaiting him after graduation. George Joseph Malloy, 0 X North Easton, Mass. “Rope” Mechanical Engineering Class Football (1), (2); Varsity Football (3); Class Baseball (1), (2); Class Basketball (1); V arsity Basketball (2), (3); President Ath- letic Association (3); Band Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); Leader (3); Secretary Mechanical Engineering Society (3). The lanky young fellow arrived in Kingston after completing his high school course at North Easton in three years and started to prepare himself for a future by studying Mechanical Engineering. It did not take long to uncover this modest youth and he soon made himself famous in class ba sketball. He is very long, but displays exquisite form in a basketball suit. His athletic prowess is not all that makes “Rope” popular, for he has a great reputation as a flutcr and it is doubtful what the battalion band would be without him. Foreign languages, more especially translating French into English, is something in which he is very adequate, as all who took English IV will well recall. If his three years at college have proved anything we are sure he will make a success of life after leaving the institution. 36 Valentine Henry Mariani Providence, R. I. “Val” “Mary” “Wop” “Mary-Annc” Civil Engineering Class Football (2). “Val” hit the trail for Kingston with the rest of us and imme- diately became famous as the greatest living exponent of the art of rough-housing. During his Sophomore year he concluded that the steady grind required by the “Profs” was too much for his delicate constitution so he withdrew without much commotion. After trying to earn his daily bread for awhile he again changed his mind and — now he’s in again. “Mary” has aspirations of becoming a Civil Engineer and, unless his hopes are blasted, we will hear of his exploits with the rod and Numan Allen Martell, A A ' E North Attleboro, Mass. “Marty” Electrical Engineering Soph Hop Committee (2); College Orchestra (3). Numan arrived at Kingston in the fall of 1914. Forgetting entirely the many broken hearts he had left in the little country hamlet of North Attleboro, he at once proceeded to “hit the Wakefield pike.” From this habit he has never fully recovered. Between his trips “down the line” he occupies his time with his violin, his pipe, indoor sports and, occasionally, with his studies. As a violinist Marty is certainly there. It was through his talent in this direction that he attained prominence when, in the fall of 1916, he and the other Davis Hall girls gave a pageant on the Quadrangle. Numan is a fine figure of a man, and his physique, envied by many varsity stars, was developed by continued use of the pick and shovel. In spite of his artistic (?) temperament we are sure that “Marty” will succeed when he gets out into the cold, hard world. Charles Everett Mason, A.H 1 Warren, R. I. “Charlie” “Oswald” Agriculture Glee Club (1); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); Polygon (3); Grist Board (3); Scholastic Honors (1), (2); Vice-President Hughes Club (3). At the opening of college ’14, a very- dignified-looking young man appeared on the campus. This young man, dear reader, was none other than our Hon. Charles, as true and as noble a son as Warren ever sent forth. He did not attract much attention, at first, because of his unas- suming manner, but when classes began “Oswald” also “began.” By his good record to date we see he is still going. The only thing that interferes with Charlie’s happiness is the fact that he is a janitor. This involves so much responsibility that “Oswald” spends all of his spare time in an easy chair, planning how to avoid the wrath of his fraternity brothers. The Aggie world is extensive, but we arc looking for big things from you, Charlie. 37 cr ff)e rif of tfie xxv (fa s Albert Rosaire Mayer, A X A Providence, R. I. “Skect” “Frenchy” Electrical Engineering Beacon Board (i), (2), (3); Orchestra (1), (2}, (3); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); Class Treasurer (3); Polygon (3). This gentleman hails from Providence where he attended La Salle Academy. While at the “Prep” he earned a few simoleons after school, by working in the ladies’ hair dressing parlor at the Boston Store. Here he acquired the art of combing his hair in that stunning style which distinguishes him from the rest of the mere men on the campus. On Monday he gets a perfumed, azurc-hucd epistle from Wheaton College. On Tuesday he answers it. On Wednesday he gets an- other — and so on, ad infinitum. To show that he isn’t entirely a ladies’ man, he made a place on the Beacon staff. His fighting qualities arc vouched for by his rank of sergeant in the college “army.” When his pipe’s goin’ with ol’ P. A., and his fiddle’s a-givin’ off sweet melodies, and the log’s a-blazin’ in the fireplace — then the Frenchman’s willin’ to lctanyonc fill their pipes from his can. Arthur Henry Frederick Meyer, AA t Providence, R. I. “Dutchv” Chemical Engineering Class Baseball (1), (2). “Dutchy” dropped in on us from the celebrated suburb of Provi- dence, Olncyville. Since that time he has been trying to shake off the handicap, and incidentally, to acquire a knowledge of chemistry. He has shown marked ability as a bomb-thrower (German mili- tary authorities, please take notice) but the bombs in question are harmless bags of water, and unsuspecting friends (?) the targets. Among his many attainments oratory is tabulated. His chief topics are the German situation and President Wilson’s ability as a correspondent. When not using his oratorical power he is in session with the B. A. A., of which he is a founder and staunch supporter. After graduation, “Dutchy” intends to take up debating on cur- rent topics. This is the line in which he has shown great proficiency. His favorite argument which brings absol ute silence from his opponents is, “You win.” Clara Katherine Miller, 2 T A Pawtucket, R. I. “Rover” Home Economics Has anyone here seen “Rover,” the speed artist? Clara may look very sedate and dignified but she is there — twenty minutes or so late. She is always the first one to be ready for some fun after she has found out “how come why.” Her class-room record in Home Ec has always been a good one and we only hope that she will put her knowledge into practice when cooking for Sir — . 38 James Albert Mitchell Oakland, R. I. “Jim” “Mitch” “Colecge” Electrical Engineering Beacon Board (2), (3); Wireless Corps (2), (3); Assistant Man- ager Tennis (3). " Halt! Who’s there?” " It ' s me. " No, it’s only “Jim” returning from the village at 2.00 A. M., or the wireless room. “Mitch” would be a perfect man but for two defects — one is with his head; the other with his heart. The main trouble with his head is that he raises one good crop of hair each year and then has to decide between two evils — getting a hair-cut or buying a bigger hat. He chooses the less expensive of the two by undergoing the ordeal of a twenty-cent “trim” in Pridev’s operating room. Likewise, with his heart the defect is not wholly internal. A thorough diagnosis of the case will show that this organ is too large, for he has room for more than one fair damsel at the same time. “Jim” admits it. “Jim” has excellent prospects for developing his electrical talents and making a name for himself. Do not be surprised if you hear " Prof” Coggins add the “Mitchell” to the already too large number of definitions. As inertia is called the laziness of matter, the “Mit- chell " will be defined as the laziness of an electrician. Harold Quentin Moore, P I K Westerly, R. I. “Pal” Mechanical Engineering Varsity Football (1), (3); Glee Club (1); Corporal (1), (2); Class President (3); Polygon (3); 1st Sergeant (3). This young man with the lady-like laugh came to us from Allen School to better his knowledge of engineering. But as to whether it was this or the fact that Rhode Island is a co-ed college brought him to us is not known. At any rate he is successful with both. “Pal” takes great delight in tracing his English ancestry and there is little doubt but that he is a descendant of some “Bull.” “Pal’s” toe has been found invaluable in drop-kicking for the varsity. This comes easy to him, but his greatest ambition is to drop one over “Lanza’s” head. He hopes some day to put another West in Westerly, but you never can tell, for his watch is well worn now from a change of faces. Ruth Goodwin Murray, 2 T A Bristol, R. I. “Oody” “Rufus” “Ding” Home Economics Along came Ruth to the time of “Alexander’s Ragtime Band,” to join our ranks from the little seashore town of Bristol. She arrived a verdant Freshman, but soon learned that a few rules were nothing to be afraid of (co-ed included) and that fire-escapes were just as useful as staircases. We know she just adores studying but — when it comes to a good time she is right in the midst of it. Some day we may hear of her being on the stage, perhaps as a ballet dancer, but we think more likely she will make a practical application of her chosen course, for she is already practicing her unequalled knowledge of cooking i n countless numbers of “feeds” with Friday night specials. We wish you success as a Home Economist, Ruth, whether it be in theory or 39 e riji of tfie xxv Ramon Alejo Pla, A X A San Juan, Porto Rico “Topsy” Kingston Class Honors (l); Instructor in Spanish (3); Secretary Chemical Society (3). The Hon. Senor Don Ramon A. Pla is our representative from Porto Rico’s sunny clime. He was first discovered, with other fresh- ions at our positive pole of learning in September, 1914. He filtered into Kingston and precipitated on our campus with the rest of the ’l8crs. Here he started to react with a few molecules of professors; dissolved some c. c.’s of knowledge and crystallized out into a full- fledged “perfesser” himself. He has evaporated low marks; disso- ciated all text-books; superheated the “Profs” and condensed their escaping steam. By weighing each constituent on the accurate bal- ance of honesty he has finished perfectly neutral. Thus concludes the reactions of “Topsy,” the chemist, at R. I. We expect great things of him when he enters life’s busy thoroughfare. Henry Irving Riley, A A ' P North Attleboro, Mass. “Monk” “Irish” Electrical Engineering Class Football (2); Class Baseball (1), (2); Class Basketball (1); Class President (2); Class Baseball Manager (l); Corporal (3). Ladies and gentlemen, behold before you the noble countenance of “Monk " Riley, the great Irish orator and debater. After wasting a year at Bates College, “Monk” decided to come to Rhode Island to do some studying. So far he has succeeded. “Monk” is also somewhat of a pitcher, shining particularly in the “Frat” league. During his spare time “Irish” can generally be found mopping the top floor of the dormitory- with some poor Freshman or upper classman, or else he is attending one of the famous sessions of the After graduating “Monk” has decided to teach Chemistry in the North Attleboro High School, and evenings he will devote his time explaining the principles of Thermodynamics to the citizens of that same town so that in the future they can have steam-heated side- Carl David Roun, P I K Hillsgrove, R. I. “Carl” Applied Science College Orchestra (1), (2); Kingston Prize Essay Contest (2); Glee Club (l), (2); President Hughes’ Club (3). “What are you doing tonight?” “Come over to the house awhile. How are you hitting things, old boy? Pretty tough, ain’t it?” This is typical of our Carl. Carl, a product of East Greenwich Academy, blew into Kingston with the intention of becoming a Chcm. Engineer, but later decided that Applied Science blended better with his musical frame of mind. During the recent Presidential Campaign he became the distin- guished President of the College Hughes’ Club. Carl is rarely seen on the campus after dusk, but could be found, no doubt, in the Greenwich Opera House or Roof Garden furnishing music for the merry-makers.

Nevertheless, he immediately made his presence felt by showing a much-touted Senior a thing or two in advanced organic chemistry. As a chemist he is also a good chess player. Since matriculating at Rhody he has progressed rapidly and now one may see “Curly” carelessly sauntering towards Davis with one of the “beautifuls " on his left hook. Beware, Joe!

We soon overcame our longing for home and began to assert ourselves as an active element in the student body. During our Freshman year all of the varsity teams received additions from among our members. The class is duly proud of these men. We had the mis- fortune to be beaten by the Sophomores at football and track, but part of the sting was removed when we defeated them in baseball. We returned the following fall, somewhat diminished in numbers, and imme- diately began to take proper steps for the subjugation of the Freshman Class. We started things by pulling them through Underwoods Pond, October 28th. Next, we decisively won from them in the fall track meet. Our victory in the annual football game was “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” As a result, red rib- bons have been conspicuous at the social functions of the college. The Soph Hop, held in November, was a decided success. It was agreed by all that it was one of the best dances ever held on the Hill. What is more than the worldly accomplishments, we have shown and always expect to show good old Rhode Island spirit. 47 (Class nf 192U Sutiurarii fflnnbrr Professor Samuel Harvey Webster (0fttrrrn Milton Warren Gardiner President Mildred Elizabeth Edwards Pice-President Louise Jane McNaught Secretary Waldo Emery Treasurer (Class ®tslnri| In the fall of the year 1916 there came to Rhode Island a group of grown-up high school children — wide-eyed and open-mouthed. After carefully looking them over the older students decided that they would be given a trial. Proudly the Freshmen caps were donned and the work of the worthy upper-classmen was cheer- fully accomplished. The result is that we are still making good. The Sophs showed a little more experience in both the rope pull and football game, and consequently they were successful in these events. Then came the track meet, and though we won in several events we had to content ourselves with defeat and charged the result to experience again. Basketball season opened and it was now that the Freshies showed the ability that had been so long latent. They made the Sophs bow down in submission, and in addition the Juniors and (sacrilege that it may seem) the worthy Seniors tasted defeat. So we are improving every day and hope to continue for the honor of the class and Rhode Island State College. 49 TEe rijt of tfie xxv th (ffajs THE CAMP AND r S — T H E N R6o cfe j)S Can (f ' fta te ( oCte c eA o w cfe Can f fta te ( oOCe cfeA S’nntr ICrttrrs tn liirr — anil Sark Dear Louise , Here I am at last, a real collegian! It makes me think of those hours we used to spend thinking of the day when I would be in college, and now that the time is here, I feel almost the same, except that I’m rather proud of the fact that I am in a place where men start on the path to glory. I got here on the afternoon train and rode up to the college in a “jitney.” After the two-mile ride, I got out and handed the driver a nickel, but he made me pay him forty-five cents more. That’s the first time I knew a jitney was fifty cents. I always thought it was five cents. That shows that I’m startin g to get educated already. After that 1 went to the office and got keys for my room, which is in East Hall right across the campus from the office. The fellows are fine here, because as soon as I got in the building one of them showed me my room and stayed around and talked just like he’d known me all the time. He said he was Manager of the Bowling Team, and that he would help me to buy my things for the room. He told me what to buy and he sold me a radiator and a clothes press. He gave me the window shade and he told me not to let anyone fool me by trying to sell me the bed because the college furnished that free. So you see I’ve got a good friend so soon. He had the same room last year and he sold me the things because he’s going to get new ones this year. These old ones are good enough for me to start with, and the radiator is just as good as new. I’m going to meet Smith, that’s the fellow’s name, again and he says he’ll let me in on a secret pretty soon, be- cause I’m a smart looking fellow and not like most of the Freshmen. Of course, all of the fellows aren’t like that, though, for after Smith left me, another fellow came in and tried to sell me the bed, but I was wise to him and he didn’t fool me. After that some of the upper classmen made all the Freshmen carry a bunch of trunks up to the rooms and I’m so tired I can hardly write any more. I will write soon and tell you about that secret that Smith’s going to tell me. Charlie. Dear Charles, I was just tickled to death to get your letter this afternoon and I am sitting right down to answer it even if Mama does want me to practice my piano lesson. Well, I am just the most pleased girl in Bellville to learn that you’re getting along so fine. They can’t fool you on that boughten goods stuff, because we know lots more than we seem to, don’t we, Charles dear? It must be awful nice to be a college boy. I bet you go around with your hands in your pockets just like those actors that were down here last spring. Did you show them how good you could play the harmonica. ' You better had, because that would show them that you were more than a bowler and you would be a lots more popular. Charles, you can’t realize how lonesome I’ve been since you have been away. Nights I just cry and then I hug your dear little picture — the one where you are driving Old Nell in the buggy — and I wish you didn’t go to that old college. But I know it will be fine for you and when you come home we will have the loveliest time, darling. What do you think? Jim Williams asked me to go to Mary Carter’s birthday party that is to be on Saturday night, and I told him I had to stay in that night. And every time I think of Jim, I think of that dirty little brother of his, and you S3 (r f e rijt of tfie xxv QCafs mttr 3-rttprH lo ifirr -atib iUark - Continued know how I hate little kids like that one. Well, I guess Jim needn’t think that because you are away I will go with him. Lots of kisses, and don’t go around with any of them do-eds (is that what you call them?). Louise. Dear Louise , Now that I am all settled I will write you all about things. I have another roommate now. We have a corner room which is used for a bed room and a study room. My roommate thinks he knows it all, and he told me to look out about being fooled. He says he knows all about it, because he comes from a big High School in Providence. I think the name of it is Technic or something like that. He thinks because Belleville hasn’t so many people that I am green, but just wait and see how we’ll fool him, won’t we? Smith saw me today and told me the news. It is lucky that I am taking En- gineering, because he asked me what course I was taking and when I told him he said: “That’s fine. I thought maybe you were an Aggie, and that would make you ineligible.” But I bet you’re just so anxious to learn that secret that I told you about, or that I was going to tell you about. Well, here it is: Smith (his nickname is Deadeye) says he’s appointed me Chief Pin Boy of the Varsity Bowling Team, and Captain of the Freshman Team. And I’ve only been here a week, too. There’s a little work to it, but when you go to college you don’t study all the time. It’s just as The Beacon (that’s the weekly paper here) says. You come to college to get educated in other things besides studies. Besides doing that work for the team, I have to pick the whole Freshman Team. Then we’re going to play the Sophomores. I had to keep it all a secret until today, and then at dinner Smith got up in the dining hall and announced that everybody ought to go out for the team, especially for the Freshman Team. He said that I was captain and for them to report to me. Gee! I didn’t know he was going to announce it like that and when everybody cheered I got all red, just like the time you stood under the mistletoe at Fred’s house. Every time anyone sees me now they call me Cap, and it certainly feels fine to be treated that way when you’ve only been here a week. We haven’t fixed up the alleys yet. I was over there just tonight and waited for Smith for a half an hour, but he didn’t come. We were going to fix up the alleys. I guess Smith must have forgotten about it. It’s four days, two hours and forty minutes more to the Thanksgiving vaca- tion, and then I’ll be home again. Will write again. Charlie. Mr. Charles ll addon, I received your letter a nd was glad to hear from you. Things are going along fine here. I went to a charivari with Jim last night, and we are going to a party tomorrow night. He is a dandy fellow and has the cutest little brother. I take care of him (the brother) lots of times and he’s just too jolly and cute for anything. Any time you are home, call me up on the phone and tell me how you are get- ting along at college. Mother sends her regards.

Baldwin The football team of 1916 was up against a very hard schedule from the open- ing game with Brown until the closing tussle with our old rivals, New Hampshire. Despite the heavy schedule we can look back over the season with satisfaction, for barring the Colgate game we held Brown to as low a score as any of her opponents during the season. The season opened with vacancies left by Lussier and Becker by graduation. As both these men were guards, a hole was left on either side of Gibbs. The posi- tions were ably filled, however, by Bartels and Malloy. One serious handicap that we had to contend with was the lack of men of varsity calibre in the entering class. The back field, consisting of Murphy, O’Brien, Capt. LeBoeuf and Knott, gave us a strong combination. Wood played the backfield in a few games, but injuries forced him to quit the squad. Keegan came back strong after a year’s absence and proved himself an invaluable asset as a line plunger. A log for the season shows: W ' on, Fort Adams 69-0; Maine 13-0; Connecticut 13-6. Lost, Brown 18-0; Colgate 38-0; Boston College 39-0; New Hampshire 12-0. Tied, Wesleyan 3-3. The first game with Fort Adams proved a walk-over for the Blue and White. The soldier boys never had a “look-in.” There was little chance for the team to display any real form, but some fine forwards were made by the home team. Spurred on by the decisive defeat administered to the Fort team, a large Rhode Island following journeyed to Providence to attend the Brown game. All left the field encouraged by the game fight put up by the Rhody eleven. The R. I. team was up against one of the best teams in the country, but every man played his hardest from beginning to end. “Joe” LeBoeuf was in on ever}- play and did some fine punting. O’Brien showed rare judgment in handling the team, and “Polo” Dodge played a great defensive game. Jemail, Pollard and Farnum were the shin- ing lights for Brown. 59 IBe rijt of tfie xxv t( (fa s The second game of the season took place at Middletown when we played Wesleyan. Moore by a pretty drop-kick put Rhode Island in the lead in the first quarter. The game was scoreless from that time until, with four minutes to play, Harmon booted one over from the twenty-yard line, making the score a tie. Rhode Island easily outplayed the Methodists and were held once on Wesleyans two- yard line without a touchdown. O’Brien, LeBoeuf and Malloy starred for Rhode Island while Dietgen was the whole show for the Red and Black. On October 14th we resumed our athletic relations with Maine, much to their sorrow, when we handed them a trouncing to the tune of 13-0. The victory was more than welcomed, for the men felt well paid for the stormy night trip on the Steamer “Belfast.” The game, owing to the wet and muddy field, was wholly line bucking with a few end-runs and forwards. McIntosh and Knott scored the touch- downs and LeBoeuf kicked one of the goals. Rhody outpunted, outrushed and out- fought the Orono boys all the way. Our line could not be penetrated and the back- field put up a “whale of a game.” Dodge, Dunham and Gibbs were in every play and starred for Rhode Island. A pass from LeBoeuf to O’Brien netted twenty- five yards. “Fighting to the last ditch,” says the “Providence Journal,” “the Rhode Island team was finally conquered by the big Maroon team of Colgate University at Ham- ilton, N. Y. on Saturday, October 2nd.” The score does not even hint at the game fight put up by every member of the Blue and White against the team destined to be the only ' one to defeat the Brown bear. Capt. LeBoeuf was forced to retire early ' in the game, leaving the team without a punter. Our lines played fully as good a game as Colgate’s stars, but the defense put up against their open plays was what spelled defeat for us. The ends proved very weak. In spite of the big score rolled up against us we earned a “rep” as the “gamest team that has played at Hamilton.” The game with the Connecticut Aggies was witnessed by one of the largest crowds in years. The game was made interesting by open plays and end-runs. Connecticut showed a fine style of overhead passing, but after “Dave” Wood replaced Knott it was broken up every time. Rhode Island w ' as on the long end of a 13-6 score. Both tallies were made by O’Brien, one on a forward pass from “Joe” LeBoeuf and the other after a pretty sixty-yard run. Capt. “Joe” kicked the goal. Connecticut’s score was made on a forward-pass. Several times the Aggies were within striking distance of our goal, but the old fight was always there and further scoring was prevented. Dodge was the star of the game by his strong defensive work. Rhode Island lost to Boston College on Saturday, Nov. 4th, in a very poorly played game. The score was 39-0. Rhode Island’s game was full of misplays and 60 fumbles which gave the ever-alert Brickleyites their opportunity to score easily. One of the scores resulted from a fumble by one of the backfield and another from an intercepted forward-pass. O’Brien, LeBoeuf, Murphy and Call were the only ones to show any “pep.” Lowney, Hanlon and Fitzpatrick showed exceptionally well for B. C. The team, after a week’s lay-off set out for Durham to do battle with their old rivals, New Hampshire. The snow-covered field presented a new problem which could not be solved. The slippery condition furnished treacherous footing for our fast but light team. In the first half, Broderick, of New Hampshire, following a thirty-five-yard run, carried the ball fifteen yards through center for a touchdown. No goal was kicked. Rhode Island netted several long gains by successful forward passes. Fumbles, how- ever, spoiled the chance of scoring. Inthethird period we had our best chance. Along pass to Keegan resulted in a twenty-five-yard gain. With twelve yards remaining O’Brien missed a pass over the goal line. The ball went to New Hampshire on the twenty-yard line and was punted out of danger. Capt. LeBoeuf made some long runs while Keegan “hit the line” for long gains. Gibbs and Dunham played well in the line and O’Brien starred in the backfield. Although we closed the season with a defeat, we can claim we were fairly successful. 61 (Captain Albert A. LeBoeuf illanagrr Theose E. Tillinghast (Cnarb James A. Baldwin Prospects for a successful basketball season looked unusually bright when the first call for candidates was made. The entire team of last year was still in col- lege and there was a wealth of material in the entering class. Besides the veterans, Lawrence, Capt. LeBoeuf, Spencer, Smith, Wansker and Malloy, there was MalifT, Goddard and Gray who followed a “rep.” The team, however, did not get going very well and the signs of a real team did not show till the last game of the season when we hung the defeat on the New Hampshire aggregation. Two games were lost to Connecticut during the season. New Hampshire defeated us at Durham. We lost to Mass. Aggie, and Amherst, but both of these teams were of unusual calibre this year. The season opened with Amherst at Amherst and received a trimming that was a surprise to all. R. I. was outclassed from the start and could not break up the offense or through the defense. Maynard was the star for Amherst with twelve baskets from the floor. The score, Amherst 65— Rhode Island 5. Rhody’s second game was more successful than the first, and Northeastern was trimmed to the tune of 61-25. The visitors were completely outclassed. The Blue and White second team played the last half of the game and scored more than the varsity. Goddard and Malloy at center and Spencer at forward were the stars for R. I., while Clough played well for Northeastern. Playing a slashing game from start to finish, the boys from Kingston made Boston University show the goods to take the game 24-22, on their own floor. Rhode Island led at the end of the first half, 17-13. Boston tied in the last half and the tie was not broken till the last minute when Jenks registered a long one from the floor. E. Jenks was the star for B. U., while “Sammy” Lawrence and Malloy were the goods for R. I. Rhode Island came out on the short end of a fast game with M. A. C. at Am- herst, 34-1 1. The Aggies played a wonderful passing game which proved hard to break up. M. A. C. led at the end of the first half, 14-6. In spite of the score our men played a fine game. 63 T fe Griff of tfie xxv (f Cafs The Connecticut quintet showed a lack of manners by handing us a trimming on our home floor. At no time during the game did either team have a lead of over four points. The end of a fast game found us on the losing end of a 28-26 score. The Connecticut five started out with a pretty passing game and succeeded in scoring the first basket. R. I. soon overcame their narrow margin and when the first half ended were one point to the good. The playing was hard and fast through- out. In the second half Connecticut took the lead and held it till the final whistle. The game was full of spectacular plays by the members of both teams. Dickinson at left forward for the visitors played a sterling game, both on the offense and de- fense. Lawrence and Goddard starred for R. I. On the following Saturday, Rhody met defeat for the second time at the hands of the boys from the Nutmeg State. The game was played at Storrs. Our team was crippled because of the illness of Capt. LeBoeuf, and Malloy was taken out of the game for the same reason. Goddard and Maliff were the shining lights for Rhode Island. The score was 34-32. Our first game with New Hampshire went to our rivals, 27-20. Rhode Island led at the end of the first half, 18-12, but the White Mountain boys played a whirl- wind game the second half. The entire student body with many of the alumni packed Lippitt Hall to see the last game of the season with New Hampshire. The game was a treat. The Rhode Island men displayed a fine defense and a clever passing game. New Hamp- shire caged the first basket from the floor, but Rhode Island soon passed them and were never headed. W hen the final whistle blew, it was Rhode Island 22, New Hampshire 16. The work of Maliff and LeBoeuf on the defense was of the highest calibre, while Malloy’s shooting was the best of the evening. After the game, the team elected George J. Malloy, ’18, of North Easton, Mass., captain for next season. 64 Sophomore Football Team Freshman Football Team 65 Hasfball Samuel Eugene Lawrence Captain-Elect James Francis Pyne Manager Donald Elsworth Carlton.

The games put up by the Hill team marks the nine as one of the best that has ever represented Rhode Island. The new battery, consisting of Lawrence as catcher, and Hudson and W oods twirlers from the Freshman Class, more than replaced the men lost by graduation. The work of the battery is recorded in the low scores made against the team. Outside of the battery positions the team had the men of the previous year, and a consistent game was in order throughout the season.

These were the contests with Tufts, Maine and Colby. The first game was with Brown at Andrew’s Field, and although the loser by a 4-1 score the team put up a good exhibition of baseball. The game was full of fast fielding and fine batting by both sides. W ' oods and Hudson, in the box for Rhody, let Brown off with five hits and Sammy was the big man behind the bat. The lone tally, which is the initial one against any Brown baseball team, was made by Chick Lynch, who got a two-bagger in the seventh and stole third and home.

It was Freddie who put the game on ice in the second when, with a two-bagger, he drove in two runs. The visitors got four hits. The opposing twirlers did not fare so well. Mooney was knocked out of the box in the fifth, but his successor, Bissel, pitched a good game of ball. Lawrence accepted fifteen chances without a n error, and Torgan at third played well around the sack as well as get- ting two hits out of three times up.

Brackett then attempted a delayed steal, but was out at second. Ir- vine, however, was brought across with the winning run. A difference of opinion arose as to the validity of this score, as it was claimed that Brackett held Lewis’ arm as the latter threw to put Irvine out. The play was resumed, however, and no further runs were made. Lynch got a home run and two doubles out of four times up, and scored two runs.

Tech tied the score in the same in- ning, and brought in another run in the seventh. Hudson was then replaced by Woods. Rhody tied up the score in the ninth when Seifert doubled to center and Lussier doubled also. Tech received no more runs during the rest of the game. 68 The Hill men scored two runs in the eleventh and put the game on ice. In that inning Torgan was out at first. Lynch singled and went to third on Seifert’s single to right. Seifert took second on Lussier’s out. Lewis scored Lynch and Seifert with a clout over second. Tech finished the game with three fly balls. Seifert, Lynch and Lussier were the stars with the bat for Rhode Island. Capt. Seifert also put up a good fielding game. Luce starred for Worcester.

The Hill team led all the way, was never safe until Chick Lermond pulled down with one hand a line drive for the last put out of the ninth inning. Lermond drove in two runs in the seventh which practically made the game safe. Torgan, Lermond and Lussier were the main hitters for Rhode Island. Anderson starred for Connecticut.

Greenhalgh Captain Donald J. Kendall Manager J. Stanley Beamensderfkr Coach Rhode Island was most unfortunate in her 1916 Track Season Her over- whelming defeat at the hands of New Hampshire closed a poor year on the cinders. The team was severely handicapped by lack of material. What was lacking in numbers, however, was made up in quality. The team really consisted of a few men who could be depended on to place in several events. The new men, Tweedell and Benish, showed great form in the distances while Capt. Greenhalgh was the mainstay in the quarter. Palmer, “Dave” Redford and Wood starred in their respective departments. Rhode Island opened the season with Tufts at Medford. They lost to the Brown and Blue only after a nip-and-tuck struggle from the opening to the very last event. The score was 64-62. One decision by the judges when they declared Chase and Penaligan tied for second in the hundred caused us to lose a point which otherwise would have made the final score a tie. Benish for R. I. took first in the 880-yd. run; the mile, and second in the two- mile. Capt. Greenhalgh took first in the 440-yd. run and second in the 880. Palm- er of Rhode Island was the best in the weights with first in the hammer and shot- put and second in the discus. The outstanding feature of the meet was that all of the scoring for Rhode Island was done by the same few men. ulir Nrui fSa mpshirr Mttt In her meet with New Hampshire, Rhody was handicapped by the small num- ber of men on the track squad. This necessitated the participation-in several events of a few men who were soon tired. Benish starred for Rhode Island when he copped the mile and gave Nightin- gale the race of his life in the two-mile run. As a result, a new record, 9 mins. 46I seconds was hung up for the distance. Capt. Greenhalgh took first in the 440, second in the 220 and third in the 880. Wood took first in the low hurdles and second in the high hurdles in slow time. Palmer, as usual, took good care of the weight events. He scored first in the shot-put, second in the hammer and third in the discus-throw. 71 T je vijt of tfie xxv 1 (fa s •Nrut ijantjjshirr fHrrt at Ximjstmt !Xrui ffiampahirr 82 iKluifor Jalattft 44 ioo yd.

MacCreadie Coach Once more Rhode Island proved a bright star in the relay firmament. Al- though only participating in two indoor meets she won both handily in very fast time. For the third consecutive time she won from M. A. C. and had the satisfac- tion of turning the tables on Vermont for the defeat suffered at the hands of the Green Mountain boys last year. When the call for candidates was made, the entire team from lastyear reported with a bunch of classy performers from the entering class. Gardner, Wood and Greenhalgh held their own against the new men, while Reid, from the Freshman Class, acquired the other berth. 74 Rhode Island opened with M. A. C. at the Coast Artillery Corps games in South Armory, Boston. Gardner started for R. I. against Bainbridge of the Aggies. He handed a lead of two yards over to Reid, running second for Rhody, opposed by Clough. These men had a merry battle for two laps but Reid managed to increase the advantage to four yards. Wood then took the baton and added three more yards at the expense of Yessair. Capt. Greenhalgh and Capt. Pratt opposed each other in the final frame, but the Rhody captain proved too speedy and crossed the line twelve yards in the lead. The distance was covered in two minutes and thirty- three seconds, a new record for the track. The record was short-lived, however, for two of the larger colleges succeeded in breaking it later in the evening. At the B. A. A. games, in Boston, V ermont fell down in defeat before our speed artists, by a wide margin. This more than made up for their win of last year. “Larry” Gardner started things for Rhode Island by leading Powers by eight yards at the end of the first relay. “Frankie” Reid climbed up twelve yards more on Perdman. Capt. Greenhalgh added fifteen yards to the twenty, leading LeBarron by thirty-five yards when “Dave” Wood started the last act with Thomas, the Vermont anchor. “Dave” found the finish line fifty yards ahead of the Vermont man. The race was run in three minutes and sixteen seconds. At the Penn Relay games at Philadelphia, on April 28th, the Blue and White closed its season by placing third in its class.

In 1863 the General Assembly of this State passed resolutions author- izing the Governor in behalf of the State to accept and receive the land script, which amounted to 120,000 acres, 30,000 acres for each Urtited States Senator and Rep- resentative. This land script was transferred to Brown University in accord- ance with an agreement whereby that institution was to responsibly and faithfully discharge all obligations imposed upon the State by the Land Grant Act. The land script was located in Kansas, and on account of lack of funds with which to pay the taxes upon the property, Brown University sold the land, deriving there- from a fund of $50,000. The income from this fund was devoted to the payment of scholarships, the beneficiaries under these scholarships being required to take work in agriculture or allied subjects. In 1887 a joint special committee was appointed by the General Assembly to investigate and report what action would be necessary in order that the agricultural interests of the State might obtain the greatest benefit in carrying out the Act of the 49th Congress to establish Agricultural Experiment Stations and also to in- vestigate and report upon the disposition being made of the original Land Grant Fund income. This committee held several public meetings during the winter of 1887 and 1888, and in accordance with public opinion there was reported a bill establishing a State Agricultural School on an independent basis. This bill was passed March 23, 1888. Three days earlier, March 20th, a resolution had been passed, appointing a joint special committee to select a site for the institution. Many offers of land were made to the committee; five different sites were inspected and it was finally voted to buy the “Oliver Watson” farm at Kingston. June 13, 1888, Governor Royal C. Taft appointed the first Board of Managers of the new school. This board formally organized at a meeting held in Kingston on July 30, 1888, Mr. Charles O. Flagg of Cumberland being elected president of the board. This meeting was held in an old corn crib which was located near the Watson House. On May 24, 1889, Dr. John H. Washburn was engaged as Principal of the State Agricultural School. The work of organization and planning for the future development of the school was at once undertaken although no definite arrange- ments for students could be made as there had been no provisions for housing or for paying the necessary running expenses. The first building to be constructed 78 for the institution was Taft Laboratory which was completed in June, 1890 (and for the first few years was used jointly by the Experiment Station and the School). The first exercises to which the public were invited was the laying of the corner- stone of this building. Brief exercises were held, about fifty people being in attendance. To provide for the proper housing of the Agricultural School, the State Legislature on March 18, 1890, made an appropriation of $50,000. This money was expended in the erection of College Hall and South Hall. On March 27th a bill giving $10,000 annually for the maintenance was passed. On July 23, 1890, the cornerstone of College Hall was laid. Governor John W. Davis, as the first speaker, in closing, said: — “We can hold foremost position only as our intelligence may be foremost and it is to promote such intelligence as applied to agriculture that this school is established and I most heartily commend it to the farmers of our State. Let us do what we may to speed the work.” Class of ’94 as Freshmen The first class entered the institution Sept. 23, 1890, with an enrollment of twenty-seven. The entrance requirements for the three year course then offered were stated as follows: — “The requirements for admission to our school embrace the ordinary English branches, arithmetic through square and cube root, geography, reading, spelling, English grammar and an elementary knowledge of United States history.” The first class paid for table board three dollars per week and five dol- lars per annum for room rent. The Faculty and Experiment Station Staff com- bined consisted of twelve persons, two of whom were employed only part time. On Sept. 27, 1890, Mr. Thomas C. Rodman was appointed Instructor in Woodworking to which was added later the work of Superintendent of Buildings, which position he held until his death on November 18, 1916. 79 f rijt of tfie xxv (ffajs Until December 6, 1890, the few boarding students at the institution had been living in the village. On this date the Boarding Hall was finally completed and the boarding students moved to the upper floors of the Boarding Hall. Governor Davis on Dec. 12, 1890, on the occasion of an informal visit to the institution, laid the cornerstone of the Veterinary Hospital (Ladd Laboratory). The first year all recitations were held in Taft Laboratory until May, 1891, when the builder in charge of College Hall allowed the use of two partially finished rooms on the first floor for the botany and drawing classes. An old “lecture and recitation card, spring term 1891” shows that the day’s class work commenced at 8.15 A. M. and continued until 4.00 P. M., with a noon intermission from 12.30 to 1.30 P. M. Aside from the noon interval, the only va- cant periods during the five school days were from 11.30 to 12.30 Wednesday and Friday. In those days the laboratory work in agriuclture was listed as “practical agriculture” and consisted of digging ditches, building roads, grading lawns around the buildings, harvesting farm crops in the fall term, plowing and planting in the spring. In the late fall and during the winter term, of that year, instruction in woodworking was commenced. In pleasant weather, the class worked upon the Veterinary Hospital, and stormy days in the basement of Taft Laboratory. Dur- ing this year, there was installed according to the report of the Board of Managers, “an adequate water supply, consisting of a six-inch artesian well, hard pine tower, forty feet high, circular tank, to ft. x 10 ft. A four-inch wrought iron main was laid to Taft Laboratory from which a three-inch main supplied the new dormitory and boarding hall. Three two-inch hydrants have been provided, one each at the lab- oratory, dormitory and boarding hall.” In September, 1891, the second school year started with two classes on the grounds. In October, the first reading room at the institution was opened. This was financed very largely at first by the Students’ Reading Room Association which raised nearly fifty dollars the first year to pay for newspapers and periodicals. Until 1892, communication between the village and school was either by way of the wagon road leading from the boarding hall south to the main road from the village to the depot or by means of the footpath which necessitated the climbing of several stone walls and pairs of bars. The direct road to the village was opened in the spring of 1892, and Arbor Day that year was celebrated in co-operation with the Kingston Improvement Society by the building of the sidewalk from the village to the school. May 19, 1892, the General Assembly passed an act amending the act estab- lishing the Agricultural School and establishing the Rhode Island College of Agri- culture and Mechanic Arts. Upon receiving notification of the passage of this amendment, the students held the first large celebration at the institution, prep- arations for which had previously been made. In this celebration the old cannon, 80 Class of ' 94 at Commenci rt ? of, tfie xxv ($Ya s “Ben Butler” played an important part. “Old Ben” is still on the college cam- pus, bearing a tablet duly inscribed telling of the event. This tablet was placed by the classes of 1894 and 1895. During the summer of this year the Faculty ar- ranged a new course of study which went into effect with the opening of the college year September 14, 1892. This changed the length of the course from three years to four years and carried with it the granting of a degree upon completion instead of a diploma. The students were also allowed an option between agriculture and mechanic arts. The principal events of the college year which opened September, 1893, were the attendance for the first time of four classes, and the first Commencement exer- College Hall Burning cises which were held in a tent erected upon the front campus, June 12, 1894, with a graduating class of seventeen. In 1890, Congress passed an act known as the Morrill Act which gave to each college established under the provisions of the Land Grant Act of 1862 a sum of $25,000 annually. The question of which of the two institutions in Rhode Island, namely, the State Agricultural School or Brown University should be the bene- ficiary of this act was taken into the courts for decision and was finally settled by a compromise when on April 19, 1894, the legislature passed an act authorizing the State Treasurer to pay Brown University the sum of $40,000 in consideration of which the University was to turn over to the State the proceeds of the Land Grant 82 f ocfe j)S Can (f fta te ( oCCe goJ , Act of 1862 and relinquish all claim to the Morrill Fund of 1890. With the opening of the college year in September, 1895, there were several changes and improve- ments made possible by the increase in funds. The department of botany was established, as was also the military department, the first drill being held in No- vember. During this college year the institution received one of the most serious setbacks in its history when on January 27, 1895, the college dormitory burned to the ground. Due to the splendid work of members of the student body, much of the apparatus and many of the books which were on the two lower floors were saved. Following this fire, temporary wooden quarters for housing the male stu- dents were built. This structure, which was located immediately in the rear of the present Davis Hall, was known as the Barracks. After the completion of Davis Hall this building was moved to a site east of Lippitt Hall where it served a squar- ters for the chemical department until the completion of Science Hall in 1914, when it was again moved to the side hill below the poultry department and is now used as a home for the sheep and swine. Within three weeks after the fire, there were erected three temporary buildings, the Barracks, the present carpenter shop, and a building for the botanical department which upon the completion of Science Hall was moved to the east of the dairy barn and is now used as a dairy laboratory. During the construction of these temporary quarters, recitations were held in the village court house. Following the fire, an agitation was started to do away with Early View of Campus 83 ( rift of tfie xxv (fa s the institution, later this was modified to moving the buildings to a site near West Kingston. As a result, the appropriation for the replacing of the burned dormi- tory was delayed. However, an appropriation of $35,000 was obtained late in the spring for the replacing of the dormitory which was occupied October 10, 1895. The student team became a fixture of the institution when the Legislature passed an act directing that the institution transport day students. While young women were admitted to the institution from the very first, no dormitory accom- modations were furnished until the fall of 1895 when Watson House which had for- merly been occupied by the farm superintendent was renovated and used for the young women. Buildings and Maintenance. When the State purchased the farm for the institution, the only usable building was W’atson House. Soon thereafter, Taft Laboratory, College Hall, South Hall and Ladd Laboratory were constructed. Lippit Hall, now used as the headquarters for the engineering departments, hous- ing the library and drill hall, was built in 1897. The dairy barn was constructed in 1898 at which time Taft Laboratory was remodeled. For a period of three years thereafter, there was no further construction work until after the destruction of the horse barn by fire on January 9, 1901, the present structure was built. The next addition to the building equipment was made in 1905 when an appropriation was passed for the building of the greenhouses and college poultry buildings. These buildings were occupied late in the year 1906. April 29, 1908, a bill was passed by the General Assembly providing for the erection of East Hall and the remodeling of Davis Hall which was to be used as a dormitory for young women, who, for the preceding two years, had been living at the Wells House in the village. The ath- letic field house was provided for in an appropriation made by the General Assem- bly in 1910. This appropriation was secured very largely through the efforts of the student body. In 1912, the appropriation for Science Hall was made. The cornerstone of this building was laid with appropriate exercises, October 26th of the same year and the building was occupied at the opening of the college in September, 1913. The maintenance funds have increased from a State Grant of $10,000 to the State Agricultural School and a Federal Grant of $15,000 to the Experiment Sta- tion annually to a maintenance fund from the State at present of $40,000 annually and Federal Grants of $92,500 annually. The State maintenance was advanced from the original sum to the present sum in increases of five and ten thousand dol- lars. The Federal funds have been increased from the Hatch fund of 1887 by the Morrill Act of 1890, transfer of the Morrill fund of 1862 from Brown University, Nelson Amendment of 1907, the Adams Act of 1906 for Experiment Station Work and the Smith-Lever Act of 1914 for Extension Service. 84 Administration and Faculty. When first founded, the control of the institu- tion was vested in a Board of Managers of five members, one from each county, appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. At present the Corpora- tion consists of seven members, there having been added to the county represen- tation the State Commissioner of Schools, ex-officio, and a member from the State Board of Agriculture. The first principal of the Agricultural School and President of the College was Dr. John H. Washburn, who served from September, 1889, to August 15, 1902. After his resignation. Dr. H. J. Wheeler, who was then Director of the Experiment Station, was made Acting President, which position he held until April 1, 1903, when Kenyon L. Butterfield, now President of the Massachusetts Agricultural College, assumed the duties of President. January 5, 1906, President Butterfield resigned to accept the Presidency of the Massachusetts Agricultural College, this resignation to take effect June 30th of that year. The vacancy caused by this resignation was filled by the appointment of Dr. Howard Edwards, the present incumbent, who took up the work on July 1, 1906. During this time the scientific and teaching staff of the institution has increased from twelve members in September, 1890, to fifty members at present. Development of Courses. The first change in course was made in 1892 when mechanical engineering was introduced. In 1893 the entrance requirements were increased slightly. The next change was in September, 1898, when a modern lan- guage was required for entrance. At that time the Preparatory School was es- tablished and also the course further strengthened by ' the addition of a chemical and biological course. The next year the mechanical course was changed to me- chanical and electrical engineering, thus offering two options in the engineering work. In 1901 a general science course was established, which course was abandoned in 1907 upon the establishment of our present applied science course. An agricul- tural high school course of two years was established in 1902. This course never attracted very large numbers and was later changed to the two-year short course in agriculture. The following year an industrial high school course was established. This was later followed by the two-year engineering short course, which course was discontinued several years ago. In the same year a course in highway engineering was established; the name of this course was changed and its scope broadened in 1907 when it became the civil engineering option in the engineering course. In 1903 the extension work was inaugurated. In 1907 all of the courses were thor- oughly revised and much strengthened along scientific and technical lines. For the first time a course was added to the college curriculum devoted entirely to the training of wome n for their life work. At a formal reception held on April 28, 1908, the object and aims of the home economics department were presented to the people of the State. The first students were enrolled in this course in September of that year. From 1898 to 1908 there had been slight modifications in the entrance requirements. In the latter year, by a vote of the faculty, the entrance require- ments were increased from nine to fourteen points, to be effective two points in 1909, two points in 1910 and one point in 1911. Since this time the entrance standard of this college has been that required for admission to the Carnegie Foun- dation. The Preparatory ' School was abolished in 1907. With this addition of CCrfet of, tfie xxv Cafe courses and broadening of the scope of the institution it seemed advisable to change the name, and the charter was amended on May 4, 1909, changing the name to the Rhode Island State College. In 1897 Dr. A. A. Brigham, then Professor of Agriculture, organized and conducted the first poultry course ever given in an American agricultural college. December 28 to 31, 1909, Farmers’ Week was instituted, the object of this course being to give practical demonstrations and lectures at the college to those actively engaged in agriculture in the State. Social and Religious Organizations. For the first few years there were no definite organizations of the student body aside from that of the class organiza- tions. The first definite society of which there is any record is the Young Men’s Christian Association which was established May 29, 1894. In one of the old Crists, we find an account of the Eclectic Society, established October, 1894, of which it was said “it was not formed for pleasure simply, but for literary and musical culture.” In 1896 there was formed a Botanical Club, Zoological Club and Chem- ical Club. In 1897 the Young Women’s Christian Union was established. W ith the exception of the two Christian associations, all of the societies of that day have ceased to exist, although at the present time there are on the campus special societies and clubs representing all of the main college courses. The first musical organizations were started under the name of the Rhode Island Glee and Banjo Club in 1899. Since that time musical organizations have held a prominent place in the social life of the student body. The Lecture Association, which was organized on October 8, 1900, has each winter since that time given a series of lectures and entertainments which have added much to the college life. College dances previous to 1900 were given as subscription dances or class functions. The first Military Ball was held January 20, 1900; the Junior Prom- enade became a fixture in college life on May 2, 1902. When first instituted the Sophomore Hop was given as a spring function, the first hop being held April 26, 1907. This function was changed to the fall of the year in 1909. In 1904, at the request of President Butterfield, the Student Council was or- ganized, it being composed of representatives from each class in college. The object of this organization at first was to foster a greater sense of responsibility in the student body. Due to the influence of the council, Freshman rules were estab- lished and Freshman caps were first seen upon the campus in 1909, the Class of 1913 being the first to come under the new Freshman rules. The next year debating became a part of the college activities, the first inter- collegiate debate being held April 19, 1910, with the Massachusetts Agricultural College as an opponent. Fraternities. As a result of discussion and agitation which had been going on in the student body for a considerable time, the 1906 Grist contained an article suggesting the formation of fraternities in the student body, either local or as chap- ters of a national fraternity. Nothing came of this suggestion until October 15, 1908, when Rho Iota Kappa was formed. The first year this organization had for 86 its headquarters the “Peckham House” on the road to the depot. The next year they occupied “Watson House,” removing to their present home in South Hall in 1910. The second fraternity to be formed was Sigma Delta, which organization on April 22, 1912, became Eta Chapter of Theta Chi, marking the institution of the first chapter of a national fraternity at the Rhode Island State College. Nineteen hundred and ten saw the foundation of Beta Phi, which fraternity has the honor of having built the first fraternity house at the institution. This house was built in 1913. Nineteen hundred and eleven saw the establishment of Gamma Delta Sigma, which on October 19, 1914, became Eta Zeta of Lambda Chi Alpha. The next fraternity to be formed was Delta Alpha Psi, established in 1912, their home being the Perry House on College Road. In order to establish a better feeling be- tween the different fraternities, there was formed in 1912 The Polygon, composed of representatives from each of the fraternities then established. Nineteen hundred and thirteen saw the organization of the first sorority upon the campus when Sigma Tau Delta was formed by the young ladies of Davis Hall. In 1915 Rho Chapter of Phi Epsilon Pi was founded. The faculty, feeling the necessity for an improvement in scholarship, estab- lished in 1910 an honor system. By this system, students attaining a high grade in scholarship receive honors at the end of each year of their course and also final honors upon graduation. Paul Burgess was the first to receive honors at gradua- tion. Shortly after the establishment of the honor system it was deemed wise to form, if possible, at the institution, a chapter of a national honorary society, and accordingly in 1913 a chapter of Phi Kappa Phi was founded. Publications. The first student publication to appear upon the campus was the Grist, Volume One of which was issued June, 1897, by the Class of Eighteen Ninety-Eight. William C. Clarke was editor of the first number. Since that time, the Grist has been an annual feature of college life, and the old volumes contain much of historic interest in connection with the growth and development of the institution. The Beacon first appeared as a monthly publication, the first number being issued May 25, 1905, A. M. Howe, editor-in-chief. After a short existence as a monthly publication it was changed to a weekly. Athletics. The first athletic contest held by students of the Rhode Island State Agricultural School was a football game on Thanksgiving Day in 1891 when the Mystic Valley Institute of Mystic, Conn., was defeated in their home town. The following year the Athletic Association was formed and a football game played with Connecticut Agricultural College. In the early years, the games with the exception of those played with Connecticut were high school games. The sched- ules for 1896-97 shows the football schedule to have consisted of four games with high schools in Providence, and the baseball schedule of the same year shows games with eight high schools and the Brown Freshmen. The first athletic contest with the Massachusetts Agricultural College was baseball in 1902. New Hampshire first appeared on the Rhode Island schedule in 1908 as an opponent in football. This same year Rhode Island for the first time beat the Massachusetts Agricultural College at baseball, it being the first victory in any line of athletics over that 87 ( Tioe Griff of tfie xxv tJ (f CaJs institution. This year was also noteworthy as being the first year in which an all college schedule was played in the principal lines of athletics. Brown first appeared on the Rhode Island football schedule in 19C9, the score of that game being Brown 6, Rhode Island o. Basketball and baseball games were played with that institu- tion the following season. Track events as a branch of athletics were instituted with a class meet held on June 9, 1906, the prizes for the events being given by Mr. James V. Wecden, who was then a student. This meet was held on the race track at the Washington County Fair Grounds. Two years later the interscholastic meet was established, the first meet being held May 20, 1908, ten of the high schools of the State entering contestants in this event. The first intercollegiate track con- test was a relay race with Connecticut on February 12, 19x0, in the Armory at Providence. The first intercollegiate track meet was held with New Hampshire on May 13th of the same year, since which date annual meets have been held. In the early days of athletics the members of the team were obliged to furnish their own uniforms, and coaching was provided for by subscriptions among the student body. The first year that any outside assistance in coaching was given to a team, enough money was raised to pay a member of the Brown football team to visit Kingston for three afternoons and give the candidates instruction in the rudi- ments of the game. Later the finances of athletics were placed upon a better found- ation by the establishment of an athletic tax which was assessed against all mem- bers of the student body. However, this was not a complete success until the establishment of the present blanket tax with its method of collection as part of the term bills of the college. To Prof. I. H. Tyler belongs much credit for the establishment and develop- ment upon a firm basis, of athletics at this institution. For many years, with a small student body and hardly candidates enough for a team, he succeeded in turn- ing out teams which were a credit to the institution. Alumni. The Alumni Association of the Rhode Island State College was organized at the banquet held by the Class of Eighteen Ninety-Four upon the day of graduation, in Providence. Since that time the association has endeavored to build up a strong Rhode Island spirit among the graduates and former students. As an aid in fostering this spirit there have been established five local Alumni Clubs. The first local club was founded in New York in 191 1. In 1912 clubs were established in Detroit and Pittsburgh, followed in 1913 bythe Providence and South County Clubs. In order to establish a closer relationship between the corporation of the college and the Alumni Association there was formed in 1915 the Alumni Advisory Board. At the present time there are three hundred and thirteen grad- uates of the institution, holding advanced degrees from fifteen other universities and colleges, living in twenty-seven States, the District of Columbia, Porto Rico, Hawaii, the Philippines, Uruguay, Argentine, and two Canadian Provinces, and holding responsible positions in technical and educational work. In the twenty-seven years we have seen developed from an agricultural school of twenty-seven pupils a State College offering four degree courses and with an enrollment of three hundred and thirty-two students.

Rhode Island defended the negative side of the question: Resolved, that the United States should adopt the Swiss military system, need for preparedness granted. This year the New Hampshire team canceled the debate which was to be held at Durham. A debate was then arranged with Springfield Y. M.C.A. College, but was cancelled because of the National situation. The team which was successful against New Hamsphire, consisted of Way- land M. Burgess, Capt., Charles D. Dalzell, David H. Livingstone, J. Russell Walsh, alternate. 34 irhatimi Swrirtif Wayland M. Burgess President Charles D. Dalzeli Vice-President Carl E. Fritz Secretary J.

The society is composed of members of the student body and regulates all matters pertaining to varsity and inter-class debates. To further the purpose for which it was designed, the society offers a gold medal each year to the members composing the debating team. Under its auspices an inter-class debate is held each year between the Sopho- more and Freshman classes. The cup for which the class teams contested was won last year by the 1918 team, composed of Charles D. Dalzeli, captain, J. Russell Walsh, and M. Ernest Kelly. Negotiations are now under way to have a chapter of Tau Kappa Alpha, hon- orary debating fraternity, established at Rhode Island. 135 IJrruiftrnl IUrr-$lrrBii)rnI Harold Kenneth Wilder James Hugh Williamson rrrr!ari| CrraBurrr Ashbel R.

During the past year, the organization has given the Freshmen a reception in the early fall. W ith the aid of the Y. W. C. U., it has become engaged in social service work and in Boy Scout work. This organization has furnished numerous Scout Masters for various troops in the State. Besides its regular meetings, the college has had the pleasure of hearing Richard H. Edw ' ards, who was here for a three-day campaign. His stay was much appre- ciated by the entire student body. The work of the organization has increased immensely during the last year and its good is felt by all the students. 136 Ruth W. Chandler President Hannah A. Stillman Pice-President Florence L.

There have been regular Tuesday evening meetings in charge of the girls with different members of the faculty as speakers. The annual reception to the Freshmen with the Y. M. C. A. was given in September. A Christmas box was sent to the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children in Providence. Red Cross Christmas stamps were sold. The organization is actively engaged in Red Cross work, the girls having joined the Red Cross Society. 137 Ubnftp 3slanb S tatr (£«Urgr »nripty of fflprhauiral tuginrers Arnold VV.

The object of the society is to promote interest in the sciences and arts connected with Mechanical Engineering, for the presentation and dis- cussion of technical papers by the students. Meetings are held bi-monthly. Be- sides the vast instruction obtained from attending the meetings, credit may be ob- tained by the Juniors and Seniors in Seminar, provided a copy of the report be left with the society and another copy with the professor in charge of the above men- tioned course. 138 ELECTFUCA ENGINEERS iiluiftr ilslanfi £ tatr (Cnllriir Hraurh President V ice-President Secretary . .

Since then meetings have been held monthly, and papers on technical subjects pertaining to electrical engineering have been presented. Following the presentation of papers, interestingdiscussions among the members are held, which enable them to grasp some of the most difficult phases of the subject. The society observes Edison Day annually in October, when papers are presented on the achievements of Edison in the electrical world. The society often discusses problems interesting to the engineering profession in gen- eral, and at such times all engineers are invited to attend the meetings. 139 CIVIL LMGIMLLR5 Kenneth M.

The object of this body is to keep the members informed on the progress of the Civil Engineering World. Monthly meetings were held during the last two years and papers were presented by club members and professors. The club is still young and growing and it shows promise of fulfilling a need of the Civil Engineering student. 140 cnmicAL SOCILTY H. Kenneth Wilder President Nelson E. Blake Vice-President Ramon A.

Meetings every two weeks have been well attended during the year and in- teresting papers brought before the members. Besides the papers presented by the students, we have had instructive talks from members of the Faculty and alumni. The general discussions on applied and theoretical chemistry have proved of great value to all those attending the meetings. The society has a well established Employment Service in co-operation with the Faculty, to assist students and alumni in the finding of satisfactory positions. The organization promises to become a strong factor in college affairs. 141 Slrijt of tfie xxv (sfafs tak-dlubrjiiui JSIram Hawes Scott Prof. Cooley Hunt Wheeler 142 Henry A.

In the fall of the same year it became affiliated with the New England Federation of Agri- cultural Students. Since then its growth has been rapid. The object of the club is to boost Agriculture and to give the students a broader outlook upon their pro- fession. The club has been represented in the past year at the two largest judging contests in New England and has upheld its enviable record. At the National Dairy Show at Springfield, one of its members won the Ayrshire Breeders’ Sweep- stake Prize for the highest individual score. Weekly meetings have been held at which faculty members and eminent agriculturalists have spoken. The range of subjects covered has been wide and has enabled those in the different branches of study to better understand their particular work. 143 ALUMNI CLUBS UMrrra Randolph H.

(Cullrgr an the “(Srrat fflhitr fflag " With more loyalty than coin of the realm in their jeans, several Rhode Island graduates, who had wandered to New York in search of an opportunity to earn a livelihood, met on a narrow street called Broadway one day in the fall of nineteen eleven. Naturally they began talking about Kingston and the “good old times” at the college on the hill. When they parted, all were homesick. “This has been such a pleasant hour, I propose that we repeat the performance in Times Square next Saturday night,” suggested Randolph H. Carpenter, To,” or words to that effect. “It’s a go,” replied Cal Coggins, ’07, thinking of a time when he lived on the shores of Thirty-acre. Next week they brought news of other graduates — old alumni — who were in- terested in Rhode Island College doings. In due time the attendance became so large that the available space in front of the “Herald’s” national league baseball score board was not adapted to a meeting of men and women who felt the neces- sity of manifesting college loyalty in a manner that is suitable to the classic shade 144 of Biscuit City but not to busy Manhattan. Thus, arrangements to hold regular meetings became necessary. Since it was founded the New York Club, the first alumni organization outside of Kingston, has taken an active interest in affairs at the college. Not only has the Manhattan organization been interested in the students’ activities but it has con- tributed to a number of them, including a sum of money for a case in which to keep flags, various funds, etc., while the last contribution was a prize for college songs. And frequently the college authorities have sought the opinions of New York grad- uates regarding affairs at Kingston. The membership of the New York Club of Rhode Island State College has doubled, now being thirty-two. Everyone has been connected with the college and nearly all are graduates. The majority reside in or are in business in New York City. A few of the members live in nearby suburbs. All of the meetings of the New York Club have been pleasant but the annual dinners have even surpassed the regular sessions in offering an opportunity for old college mates to meet. These have been attended by a number of the faculty. President Edwards has always come and Mr. Rodman did so until his death. A total of six annual banquets have been held. The New York Club has a warm welcome for anyone associated with Rhode Island College who comes to New York City. It is particularly desirous of keep- ing in touch with both students and faculty. Prmtifcrurr (£htb James H. Young, ’13 President George H. Baldwin, ’15 Secretary-Treasurer The Providence Club, since its inception in nineteen thirteen, has been ac- tively interested in the various legislative programmes at the State House and has had committees to keep in touch with affairs in that connection. The Club has formally endorsed various propagandi which would benefit the college directly or indirectly, such as the act now before Congress relative to the establishment of engineering experiment stations at the land-grant colleges. Attempts have always been made by the members to increase the college pub- licity. Through the efforts of the Providence organization the present arrangement of advertising the college was instituted. The Providence Club is represented on the Alumni Advisory Board by C. T. Arnold, ’94, and Miss R. B. Cargill, ’09. A. H. Hunter, ’15, and J. H. Young, T3, are members of the executive committee of the Alumni Association. An annual dinner is held to which men prominent in State affairs are invited. The situation of the club in the State Capital City makes it one of the most in- fluential of the alumni organizations. S mrtb (Eauntij (Club Professor George E. Adams Chairman-Secretary The South County Club is an organization made up of graduates living in close proximity to the college.

When they cast their hats into the flame; Rough neck Sophs could surely be ejected, If they tried their usual kind of game. Contracts also made the Sophs keep quiet, Hazing meant that students must withdraw. Just a thought of fighting or of riot Meant a quick reaction due to law. So the yearlings gathered round the festive Board, with things quite dainty and of taste. Punch and demi’s made the food digestive; All w-as calm — there was no need of haste. After-dinner speeches were in order; Eloquence was rampant and supreme. Every loving son and loyal daughter Spoke of Alma Mater with esteem. Very few of water had partaken, Punch had helped to quench the growing thirst. Should that purest drink be quite forsaken? There are those who always place it first. But let us not reveal the horrid details. You may need some rest or calm repose. Suits of men and gowns of pretty females- Someone tried to wash the diners’ clothes. Flow of water quite replaced the speeches; There ensued a flood like that of old. Heroes’ shouts plus co-ed’s thrilling screeches An unexpected story quickly told. If you would have water when you’re dining, Do you want it served to you in style? When you’re at your ease and half reclining, Do you wish to linger round awhile? If you would, ’tis best to have good service; Choose the way in which the liquid flows. If you would refrain from being nervous, Don’t have water served you a la hose. 160 3nta Nn irta The long dead Roquefort Chapter of this noble fraternity has taken a new lease of life this year and has been firmly re-established. To the new-comers, per- haps a little explanation is necessary. Our FRAT is absolutely, honest-to-good- ness, a non-secret fraternity. Repeat the sacred symbols, slow at first — faster — now the secret’s out. Regular meetings are held every second week in the sanctum sanctorum now located at Shypence Hall. Over the portals of this “holy of holies” is writ in let- ters of gold the motto: “All hope abandon, ye who enter here.” These words represent the whole workings of the organization. The rushing has been going on with avidity, and already several have been put through the degrees. As has already been mentioned, this fraternity is rigorously non-secret, for this reason the following proceedings are published, but keep it quiet: The first victim after going through the necessary requirements was brought before the high tribunal to show ' cause, if any, why he should not be put through. Squeak: — Why is this miscreant polluting our sacred mist (missed again) or rather midst? Chuck Lynchum: — He’s got a rather coarse name on the campus. Squeak: — Your name! The Malefactor: — Emery, sur. Squeak: — Rather cutting. T. M.: — Yes sur, thank you, sur. Squeak: — You understand — all who are admitted must be subject to our convictions? T. M.: — Understood. Squeak: — You are charged with battering a thoroughfare into the mess hall situated on the lower stage of Yeast. Guilty or not guilty? T. M.:— No sir. Squeak: — I repeat. Guilty or not guilty? T. M.: — Yes sir. Squeak : — Explanation. T. M.: — I was pushed sur — made the batter of a battering ram. Squeak: — Convicted on his own testimony, five hours. Next. As the next victim sauntered to the bench, a peal of laughter broke forth. The usual formalities were pursued. Squeak: — Do you realize the seriousness of your offense? Pill:— I do! S.: — Guilty or not. P. : — Not. S.: — Evidence. P. : — (produces note) Guess that fixes me O. K. Audience: — (sotto voce) ’Nuther guess. Polem: — I move — Discull: — M y move. 161 rft of, tfie xxv ( fafs Absent Member: — Move case be dropped. Squeak: — Seconded. Any discussion. Billem Killus: — No different than preceding case. P.: — But most worthy decisioner, I a-Pihl. S.: — Motion is lost. What shall we do to this infidel? Voices: — Knitting. Conclave: — (in onions) Trois heurse with Burdock. Gallery: — You said it. Squeak: — NEXT! Bloomer: — (recklessly) Right here! Squeak: — Most worthy executioner — the charge! Lynchum: — Shovin’ his face in the mess-hall prematurely. Squeak: — You heard the charge. Guilty or not? Bloomer: — (after some meditation) What da ya know? The Tribunal: — Vot a freshness. Squeak: — Come on, your plea. Bloomer: — Temporary insanity. The Tribunal: — (hoarsely) Back to the mines for a week. The Frosh: — (leaving the stand) It’s a bloomin’ shame. Gruy NEXT! Soueak: You are charged with a sin of omission — failure to tip your dinky to a m ost worthy seen-yah. Your plea. Gruy: — He didn’t recognize me. Squeak: — Guess you’re mistaken or you wouldn’t be heah. The tribunal grants you permission to keep your head warmer another month. Squeak: Have all the applicants received their degrees? The Tribunal: — There yet awaits one more reward to be made. He who seeks our mercy is Abraham by name — Thomas Abraham — the charge — wilful disruption of the Co-ed Rule. Abraham, what nefarious defence do you offer as a protection of your character, which is threatened even as severely as a second on Sunday ? Abraham sings in rotto voce, accompanied by Deek Stunn on the Short Horn: All rules I’d break, all chances take, For any co-ed’s daring sake. They’re dearer than my home to me; I haven’t any home, you see. Hughie: — But let us stay action on this accused, mayhap he is a victim of circumstance. Who knows but that he is the innocent victim of an intriguing damsel? Squeak: — (to tribunal returning from secret session) Have the gentlemen reached a decision? Lynchum: — (solemnly) We have sur. We have found it our painful duty to sentence the miscreant to “walk across” with the co-miscreant, three times a day for a week. 162 Hughie: — Seems to me that the punishment is entirely too excessive. Once should most certainly be enough for any man. I know it would be for me, don’t you know. Just place yourself in his situation. Squeak: — Further remarks? If not, so be it. All march out slowly meanwhile singing the third verse of “The Young Boy’s Nose May Have No Legs, But You Can’t Beat It Running.” The co-eds are delightful. They’re Rhody’s one salvation; I gaze into their smiling ears; Alert for adulation. Their noses twinkle merrily Just like some real aigrettes. Their cheek is quite their fortune; Yea, Murad cigarettes. We sing our praise sincerely, To co-eds most divine. Our love’s spasmodic merely; So let’s go down the line. 163 sr, 3 C tffie rijt of t£e xxv ($ CaJs (Inn (Snnii tn IKrrp Prof. Boardman: — “This one o’clock period is the worst in the day for a class.” “Andy”: — “Not here!
