After carefully looking us over, the older studes decided to give us a trial. Proudly we donned our Freshmen Caps and the work of the worthy upper classmen was cheerfully accom plished. The result was that we made good. We were unsuccessful in both the rope pull and football game as the Sophs showed a little more experience. In basketball our latent ability in athletics came to the surface and we were successful in defeating all comers. As Sophs, our Hop was a great success and our athletic ability increased. We took the Freshmen into camp by defeating them at football, but in return we received a ducking, as we were unsuccessful in the rope pull. About this time the Great War was precipitated and our ranks were rapidly diminished. In January, 1918, part of the class reassembled to continue its work, but before the end of the year our ranks had increased considerably. Despite the uncertain times and decreased numbers we put forth a Junior Prom that was a great success. Later in the year we staged the Commencement Ball and Play, which added another laurel to our crown. Our Senior year found many old faces amongst our numbers, but due to the war some have never returned and for them we have a deep respect. Our Senior year is fast dying out and the day is coming when Commencement shall be the only thought in our minds. We have all been tried and true Rhode Islanders, and it grieves us to part with old friends and familiar scenes. However, we all have a task in this world and must say good-bye to our dear old Alma Mater, Rhode Island State College. 21 THE: VICTORY- GRlgT Louise Baker, O A A Pawtucket, R. I. “Lou” “Louisa” Home Economics Vice-President Y. W. C. A. (4); Girl’s Glee Club (3). “The Gods make her prosperous.” Here she is — the slimmest little lady in the Senior Class, a staunch defender of the ability of the Beacon Staff, and a perfect miracle when handling a leaky canoe. “Lou” has made the decision to spend the future in New York, where she wasted one glorious summer studying “Klinkica! Bugology,” with the result that the poor little bugs died of pure discouragement. The only thing that this young “Paw- tuckctite” ever talked about, behind its back, was a preserved cat, and the poor thing never knew. Noted for her happy-go-lucky disposition, her ability to make the sun shine on cloudy days, she will never have any trouble in making friends. We predict great success, “Lou” when you publish your comedy, “Mutt and Jeff. " Dorald Dewey Beasley, A A V Woonsocket, R. I. “Buzz” “Dorald” Chemical Engineering Class Basketball (1), (:). (t ' ; Varsity Basketball (4); Class Foot- ball (2). “Dorald” comes from our “Northern Metropolis,” Woonsocket. Early in his college career he joined the " down the liners” and, altho he has tendered his resignation, many times, it has never been ac- cepted. From the mathematical precision that “Buzz” uses in parting his hair, his success as an engineer cannot, be doubted. This does not interfere in any way with “Dorald’s” success as a scholar and he may be found at any time poring over volume after volume of treatises on the “Oily Way " and “What Made John D. Famous.” It has been rumored that very soon he expects to publish an interest- ing article on " The Perils of a Dress Suit” or a “Poor Tired Student’s Fight for Fame.” Francis Lincoln Biggs, A I Providence, R. 1. “Frank” “Tony” Mechanical Engineering Class Football (;); Rope Pull (2); Class Baseball (3); Assistant Cheer Leader (4); Polygon (4); Grist Board (4). Hey, “Tony”! How many fish didja catch? “Tony” smiles and says no luck! When he first crept into Kingston after dark, he was a model young man of very quiet ways. Although he still creeps in after dark, he has changed. “Frank” is always some w’ecks behind in his course in English 98, “Studies of the Red Book, " and may be seen at any time diligently trying to catch up. He has a winning smile, a sunny disposition, and a wonderful “line.” He hopes sometime to work out a scheme of shortening the highway between Kingston and Wakefield, for the future generations. He cats up “Lanza’s” problems by the yard and frequently tutors the struggling engineers, for one smoke apiece. We look for great things from you “Tony” and you have the best wishes of the class. RHODE- lJlAND JC9E ' ©LEGE J Frederic Robinson Briggs, PIK Hartford, Conn. “Pipes” “Fred” Agriculture Captain Class Debating Team (l); Class Football (2); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Beacon Board (1), (2), (3), (4); F.ditor-in-chief Beacon (4); Student Council (2), ft); President Student Council (4); Class President (4); Polygon (3). (4); Honors (1), (3). When it comes to pep and enthusiasm, this brilliant product of East Greenwich Academy is there. He is interested in everything. “Pipes” is a conscientious student and always manages to find time between his other arduous activities to get away with his courses. As a “meal hound” and “tomato fiend” it is quite fitting and proper that “Fred” should be Head Waiter. The Co-eds have never had any attraction for Fred, and every one has heard his stall, “Oh, but I am only learning to dance.” Nevertheless Dame Rumor tells us that “Pipes " is a terror with the ladies when he leaves the Hill. Ralph Ernest Brierley, H Kingston, R. I. “Ralph” Chemical Engineering Editor of Beacon (4); Beacon Board (2), (3), (4); Class Debating Team (2); Manager Glee Club (3); Polygon (3), (4); Secretary Ath- letic Association (4); Grist Board (4); Corporal (2); Sergeant (3); Captain (4). Whenever we gaze upon our boy Ralph, the name of that other great man, Sherlock Holmes, comes into our minds. Why? Sher- lock also had a “Watson.” He came to us way back in the dark ages and was so entranced by the beauties of the vicinity that he has taken up his abode with us. We are glad to announce that he is again hard at work on his book, “Conquests 1 Have Made,” work on which was suspended during the war. However, he was able to collect much valuable material during that time. Emily Catherine Campbell, 2 K Newport, R. I. “Em” “M. L. E.” Home Economics Class Vice-President (2), (3); Girl’s Glee Club (3). “1 am in love; but a team of horses shall not pluck that from me; nor who ’tis I love.” Yes, that dark-haired, dignified, bone-spectacled, studious young woman is our “M. L. E.” She adores the artistic, musical, poetic or literary. “Emerson” is her favorite man of letters, “Dear Old Pal of Mine” her favorite song, and Hal’s pictures arc always found on her desk. “Em” has shown quite an interest in ads all year. She’s received more pamphlets on “Kitchen Equipment”, “Building Material,” “Interior Decoration,” and “House Planning” than any- one in college. “Em” says she’s a man-hater, but we have our doubts. Like all other “Newporters,” here, “Em” is pigeon-toed, brilliant and lovable. ' 3 j THE: -VICTORY- GRlgT Israel Caplan Pro.vidence, R. I. “Cappic” “Duke " Applied Science Freshman Debate (i); Varsity Debate (2); Beacon (1), (2), (3), (4); Beacon Associate Board (4). His majesty, the " Duke of East Hall”, is here presented. Who would think by looking at this “two by four” specimen that he was an orator. Yet, it is true, and the slippery phrases from his glib tongue drop into the cars of his audience like cider down a Senior’s throat. “Cappic " is a musician of no mean ability and the sorrowful strains of a mandolin may be heard around his domicile at almost any hour of the day and night. The “Duke” spent most of last year at Uncle Sam’s “Picnic Grounds” at Newport. Since his return he has haunted the Chcm. Lab. where his one ambition is to produce a molecule large enough to be seen by the naked eye. Cheer up, “Cappic,” good chemists come small as well as large. William Brown Carnie Pawtucket, R. I. “Bill” “Wild Bill” Electrical Engineering Class Football (2); Subscription Manager Beacon (2); Circulation Manager Beacon (3); Business Manager Beacon 14). " Bill” came to us from that world-famous town of Woonsocket, but recently changed his abode to the metropolis of Pawtucket. “Bill’s cheerful countenance and “Flivver” full of “down the liners” are common sights on the campus. Recently “Bill” has been extremely interested in the upkeep of the dancing school at Peacedale and it is said he is an artist in this line. It is a familiar scene to see “Bill, " with his screw-driver and slepladder, invading the realms of Davis to repair a light which has been accidentally turned off, for he is our “electrician.” “Bill” is a good student and promises to become a serious rival of old Thomas A. Edison himself. Horace Wilbur Clarke, AX A Providence, R. I . “Clarky” ‘Wop " Mechanical Engineering Class Football (2); Glee Club (1); Grist Board (4); President Mechanical Engineering Society (4). “Wop” started in at Rhode Island as a day student, but soon decided he would rather live in the “co-ediatic” atmosphere of the Hill. His happy-go-lucky attitude has won him many friends. “Clarky” is always ready for work or propagating a rough house. In his Sophomore year, “Clarky” was a member of the ill-fated “2nd squad” and according to Prof. Bill’s, encountered and conquered the crucial point in his life. Now that he has no worries he is an ardent follower of C. E. Lately he has joined the “down-the-liner ' s” and enjoys its thrills immensely. “Clarky” is a good student but never allows his studies to interfere with pleasure. On leaving college, “Wop and Tony” are sure to conquer all comers. 24 RHODE- IjlAND JKIt ©LEGE Samuel Harry Cohen, QE II Providence, R. I. “Porky” “Sammy” Electrical Engineering “Porky”, the speed king at the “quiet game”, blew into Kingston from the phoney burg of Conimicut. With high and mighty hopes of becoming a second Stienmetz, he plunged into electrical engineering. However, his ambitions were brought down to an infinitesimal quantity by Lanza with his Mechanics and Thermo courses. “Sam- my” is an ardent supporter of athletics and his lusty war cries and witty remarks are to be heard at all contests. On his return from service, he brought back a vocabulary of English so choice that Prof. Churchill will find it necessary to get another degree at “Gob’s University” to compete with him. We predict that he will succeed as an electrical engineer. John William Cruickshank, H Providence, R. I. “Jack” “Cruick” Civil Engineering Class Football (t) (2); Corporal (2); 1st Sergeant (3); Major (4). Attention, men! Here comes “Cruick”, an officer and a gentleman. “Ockish” classes “Jack” as the finest gentleman he ever met, and John admits it. Owing to a disagreement with Secretary Daniels on the merits of a grape-juice diet, “Jack " joined the army to protect his country. After the war “Jack” felt the lure of excitement and returned to Kingston to tell us who won the war. He is now working on that great military principle, the clement of surprise, and hopes to apply it by getting Scholastic Honors in this, his last year at college.

The diamond on her left hand is sufficient proof of that fact. “Lou” is an ardent picnicer, story-teller, and imitator. There is plenty to be said about her if one had the time and space. She has lived up to all the traditions of the Hill and believes, along with the rest of us, that a “bushel of fun” is worth a “peck of learning.” 25 THE; VICTORY- GRlgT William Harold Dawson, A A W Methuen, Mass. “Bill” Civil Engineering Class Football (2); Class Baseball (1) (2); Grist Board (3), (4); Assistant Manager Basketball (3); Beacon Board (3); Class Debating Team (2); Corporal (3); Student Council (4 Who is that tall dignified fellow strolling across the Campus: Why, that is “Judge Dawson,” the eminent philosopher from Methu- en. Behold his noble countenance! ' Tis said that on his first journey to Kingston the co-eds laughed at his high boots and check- ered suit. Probably this accounts for “Bill’s” total abstinence, for as a fusser “Bill” is “nihil.” His features nary portray him as a humorist. However, ' tis said, he made his way through college selling radiators! After graduation, “Bill” anticipates accomplish- ing some great task, probably the completion of the Chicken ville Railroad; who knows! Well, Bill, you have our best wishes.

Does she hurry? Nope! Docs she get there? Yep! Her peaceful calm is never ruffled except when something happens to one of the class flags, or when some Prof, springs a quiz, without warning. She has an awful predilection for Lieutenants of all descriptions, but we’re glad to sec that in one case, at least, the uniform is not the only attraction. But ahead of them all, " Millie” puts her favorite “B. Wiggli, " a first cousin to “B. Coli. " We expect to sec a book of discovery written by Dr. Edwards, the younger, on “B. Mystcriac, the Heroine of the Lab.,” for Mildred is a budding bacteriologist. Whitney Eastman Greene Goulds, R. I. “Whit” “Greeny” Mechanical Engineering Scholastic Honors (i), (2), (3). What is that terrible sound? Why, that is only “Whit” astride his terrible steed. Every morning “Whit” and his one lung Indian blows in from the wilds of Gould. During the first two years, he remained in the dormant stage, regarding the fair sex as something to be avoided. Lately, he has been spending his pennies in the hopes of becoming a Tcrpsichorcan artist. “Whit” is a very studi- ous chap and obtains results as his record shows. His spare mo- ments are spent in hunting, fishing, and trapping. On leaving college, he expects to become a hunter and trapper in the wilds of Canada. His one ambition is to be a chief engineer, on a fur farm, raising scentless skunks. Whatever “Greeny” undertakes, he is sure to make a success in life. 26 RHODE- IJlANDJKlt (DLIBGE ‘ . -4 ’ Arthur Edmond Haslam, © X Providence, R.

The former he stuck to but the latter he rapidly outgrew. In fact, he reached the climax by “stepping out down the line.” “When 1 was down Maine.” as “Awthaw” would say, he won fame as a play- ing manager. Although small in size, he makes up for this misfortune by the “pep” and hard work that he puts into everything he under- takes. He is equally adept in studies or roughhousing. His favorite expression is “I don’t know a thing about it” and his motto “Treat Charles Potter Holley “Charlie” “C. P.” Why our friend “Charlie” chose the mechanical engineering course none of us could understand, for his initials seemed to indicate a strong (?) inclination toward chemistry. During the four long years, “Charlie” has been able to keep a clean slate. Perhaps his ability to “pump a rule” has enabled him to do this. Whenever Lanza filled the board with figures and numerous signs, someone always piped out, “Frigger it out, C. P.” After a few joyful slides, “Charlie” always placed us back on “Easy Street” again. At last “Charlie” has made his “debut” and is now a weekly visitor at the village dancing school. Stay with ’em “Charlie” you are bound to win. Kingston, R. I. Mechanical Engineering John Foster Holmes, A X A Needham, Mass. “Jack” Agriculture Orchestra (1), (2), (3), (4); Band (1), (2); Bugler (2); Y. M. C. A.

Loyalty is “Jack’s” watchword and he applies it thoroughly. It only took two months at M. A. C. to convince him Rhode Island was the only place. “Jack” is a hard worker whether at milking cows, cornet playing, sleeping, public speaking, college activities, or “aggie literature.” “Jack” will prob- ably be awarded the honor of becoming Needham’s band master, on leaving the hill. 27 THE: -VICTORY- GRlgT Albert Sprague Hudson, X Harris, R.

It took him some time to get used to our noisy metropolis, but once acclimated, he has proved quite an asset to the community. At baseball, “Huddy” is surely there, he being the only man so far to have the honor of pitching a winning game against Brown. After a short time in the army, “Al” returned with the determination to polish off some more rough edges, and next June we all expect him to step out in life as a polished “Aggie.” James Edward Knott, PIK Bangor, Me. “Ed” “Jim” Agriculture Varsity Football (2), (3), (4); 1st Sergeant (3); Associate Editor Grist (4); Student Council (4); President Aggie Club (4). We have under discussion a very dull, retiring, modest, wisp of an old maidish youth. At least these apply to him as being what he decidedly is or isn’t. The girls just love to dance with “Ed.” The studies just push themselves into his brain. Football just naturally puts “Ed” in the limelight. A broad grin, a laugh that is half grunt, half chuckle, all roar and always hearty are habitual with “Ed.” Little things go down for him, hot biscuits, letters from his loves, A’s, and opposing tackles. Heart breaking, gloom busting, kitchen wrecking are his strong points. If there are cats about, “Ed” wants them in him. If there is a discussion going on, he wants to be in it. Words or work he turns off a big share. Rudolph Horton Kohlberg, A XA Barrington, R.

He soon forgot this undertaking and tackled the modern art of taming wild wimmen. His most ad- vantageous assets were his taking ways and abilities as a modern jazz artist. The fair co-eds of three seasons strove in vain to capture this elusive Swede, but without success, until the fair daughter of the Kingston cider king appeared on the scene. Well, the best of them fall. Rudie maintains, that a good “aggie” can shovel in a dress suit as well as in corduroy jeans, and that if he can’t have a dance hall on his farm, he ' ll move to the city. 28 RHODE- 15AND JT JE (DLIDGE Leonard James Kwasha, $ E II Providence, R.

When “Jimmie” entered in on his life work as a chemist at Rhode Island, he was lost in a seething angry mob of Freshmen, clamoring for admittance to the sacred portals of knowledge. It took him quite a while to get his bearings but success stared him in the face and he found himself at last. His brain is a complex chemi- cal formula that has more intrinsic energy than trinitrotoluol. An- other of his accomplishments is as a tutor to the fairer sex. His specialty is “dying” and is seen every day “trying to dye” in the Chemistry Laboratory. His success is assured because of his untiring efforts to gain all knowledge possible.

When the war rolled on and the class of 20 assembled for its last year at Rhode Island, “Marty” w ' as on deck. “Marty” with his fiddle, his pipe and his line; all three of which he can use to per- fection. “Marty” is a noted fusser and has been snared by co-eds, French maidens, “down the liners” and the girls at home, but at last his heart yearns to linger in Shannock. “Martie’s” jazzy violining has won him a place in Goodwin’s Orchestra and weekly he is found departing, fiddle under arm, for some country festival. When he passes “Thermo” and “Mechanics”, we predict a great career for him on the traffic squad of the North Attleboro Police Force. Charles Everett Mason, A A ¥ Warren, R.

Behold! gentle reader. This picture is one of the “Aggies of Aggies.” “Charlie” entered Rhode Island with serious intentions of becoming an “aggie” but at the outbreak of the war he enlisted in the engineers. This caused some talk as “Charlie’s idle hours were always spent in ragging the engineers. At any rate he has “stolen a march” on his old classmates as he was lucky enough to graduate in February, 1920. Whether we will find “Charlie” an “aggie” or an engineer ten years hence is a big question. However, it is certain that he will have a certain song-bird (Phoebe) around to darn his socks. 29 | THE VICTORY ' GRIST Maurice Vincent Murphy, PIK Brockton, Mass. “Murph” “Spikey” Mechanical Engineering Varsity Football (l), (2), (3); Captain Football (4); Class Basket- b all (1), (2), (3); Varsity Basketball (3), (4); Corporal (2); 1st Ser- geant (3); President Athletic Association (4); Student Council (4). You may call Maurice by any of the above listed names, and you will get a reply at any time except 7:30 A. M. Since “Murph’s” return from the great war, he has enjoyed the upper realms as a student, athlete, and fusser. As captain of the eleven, “Murph” displayed his worth as a player and leader. Maurice is an excellent student and never worries over that phase of college life. At present, his desk is for sale. “Lanza” holds no dread in store for “Murph” as “Spikey” has a good line and uses excellent bait. “Murph’s " sphere has not merely been confined to athletics and studies but his horizon has broadened until in his senior year its zenith has been reached. He is now a ladies’ man and enjoys it. Clarence Edward Nordquist, A A W Providence, R.

On entering Rhode Island, this Swede, with the personality of a Bill Hart and the speed of a “Doug” Fairbanks, was “a little bit backward in coming forward.” In his Sophomore year, he became a regular “Jazarimba” artist, with the technique that would make a Vernon Castle jealous. Nordy is the holder of the world’s record for consecutively missed breakfasts, his only rival being old Rip Van Winkle himself. If he shows as much ability in his chosen profession as he docs along this line, he is sure to succeed and his class is back- Kenneth LeRoy Northup, B Kingston, R.

Everyone knows the good-natured, roguish freshman, who entered Rhode Island from South Kingston in 1915, and w ' ho successfully dodged the Student Council throughout a whole year. With am- bitions of someday inventing a new type of spark, he sought high and low (Lou) in the mysteries of electricity. No one knows how many broken hearts there are in Newport or other ports he has visited, but we see no reason for disbelieving about a " girl in every port.

For four years, she has been a star member of her class. Her capabilities are numerous; tutor, actor, orator, debator, sub-doctor and chemist. As the latter she distinguished herself, when a Freshman, by her numerous explosions in chemistry laboratory. The Chemistry department finally had to declare a holiday due to lack of apparatus. “Esta ' s” favorite motto is: “what man should do, woman docs,” but the one she usually lives up to is: “you can get anything, if you want it hard enough.” Roland Taylor Pihl, X Pawtucket, R. 1. “Pop” “R.

As a freshman he was a very quiet, religious, and deep thinking person, but three years have changed him a great deal. Could it have been gifts received two years ago which first started him upon other paths? “R. T.

The fall of 1915 saw our young elephant alighting from the train with a comforter under one arm and a trunk under the other. When “Pri- dy” saw a mop that would have made Joe Knowles look bald, he gave three cheers. But later these changed to groans when he found Sudz’s visits were semi-annually. However, under the uplifting influ- ence of his friends, he soon learned to be a regular guy. No social affair was a success unless he was there to guide the faltering footsteps of our co-eds. Soon “Dud” departs to fields unknown and as an “aggie” we know that his line will be just as strong and successful as any of his worthy “aggie” predecessors. Albert Peckham Sisson Little Compton, R. 1. “Spots” “Sis” Agriculture “Spots” came to us from East Greenwich Academy, where we understand he led a fast and furious life. At Rhode Island, however, “Sis” has spent most of his time in showing the Profs, how he could hit their courses. He is an intelligent, unassuming youth, but let anyone broach the subject of Agriculture and “Spots” can tell you many strange tales. His reputation was made in T8 “tending door” during the B. A.

Albert has never been lured away from the straight and narrow by the “Sirens” across the campus, but he has journeyed the winding road to Wakefield. “Sis” is a staunch Rhode Islander and he is sure to make good “down on the farm.” Howard Bucklin Smith Providence, R.

She has tried her hardest to keep the " rep " of 1920. “Oh well,” say the Faculty, " she comes from a brilliant family! What can you expect!” Did you say this young lady studied? When? Remember those flying week-end visits home to cook Sunday dinner for Bill, and the ill- fated Frat pin. But that ended it. A sadder and wiser Beth decided to spend a summer in Maine, and recuperate. Celebrated for her clever leadership of the Tippy Canoe Trio and a lover of rain- bow bugs. “Beth” will doubtless become the wife of an African Missionary, on whom she will have ample opportunity to practice debating qualities in full.

It is hard to believe that during his first six months here he didn’t attend college activities, for now he is one of our foremost “jazz artists.” “Bill” is one of us far famed “aggies.” He also holds the undisputed title of the long distance pie eating contest. “Bill” is a hard worker and believes in giving the boys a good time. His one delight is taking the boys to Wickford to see the two girls. “Bill” is a tact- ful fusser and an ardent follower of “down the line.” Whatever “Bill” intends to do after leaving the Hill, his cheery countenance is sure to get him by.

The tyrannous Sophs met us in a rope pull and we easily pulled them through. Then came the football game. We had pity on our higher class men and allowed them to win. All during our Freshman year we provided the college with Freshman informal dances and contributed our share of men to the teams and activities of the college. Towards the end of our Freshman year our ranks were being depleted by our members answering the call to war and very few were on hand for the opening of our Sophomore year. In the spring of our Sophomore year the men came back singly and in pairs and when the Junior year began, we were ready once again to take up our work. We have duly watched our charge, the Freshmen, and started them on the straight and narrow path. With but one more year ahead of us we will strive and be ready to step into the place of Seniors and assume their responsibilities when they leave us. 38 RHODE- I JlAND JTAIt (PUDGE Flora MacPherson Anderson, 2 K Jamestown, R. I. “Mac” “Flowa” “Andy” Home Economics Class Secretary (i); Basketball Team (i); Y. W. C. A. Secretary (2), (3); Student Council (2), (3); Glee Club (2), (3); Class Vice- President (3). Who is she? Do you mean that dinked toed, boyish, looking girl over there? Yes —Why that is “Flowa”, the champion “dith sthacker” of South Hall. Flora first registered in the Applied Science Course, but deciding she liked the name of Anderson too well to change it, she later became a Home Economist. “Mac” takes great delight in all the college functions. The last we hear of Flora is at night, when all is still and dark and a little voice pipes up, “Berfa, do I really and truly Hthp?” Flora’s greatest aim, at present, is to be a trainer of bugs — hence her favorite subject — Bacteriology. Henry Frederick Baacke, A X A Arlington, R. I. “Harry” “Gramp” Applied Science Class Baseball (1), (2); Class Basketball (1), (2); Captain (1); Btacnn Board (1), (2), (3); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Class President (2) , (3); Polygon (2), (3); Assistant Manager of Track (2); Manager (3) ; Student Council (3); Business Manager Grist (3). Harry came to college, from that foreign soil called Cranston, in response to a desire for a higher education. At the beginning of his Junior year a great change appeared in our “Harry.” From a sure- nuff-social lion, he developed into a grind, and is rarely seen nowa- days. “Gramp” has many friends and delights in telling them what he expects to do. “I know,” says Harry, “a man who gets £60 a week for five hours, and that’s what 1 expect to do.” Some day we will see him the foremost milk tester of Arlington. Harold James Hall Baker, X Westerly, R. I. “Bake” Agriculture Associate Editor of Grist (3); Class Treasurer (3). This intelligent face does not indicate that it took two long years of life as a day student to convince him of the advantages of the campus. " Bake” has hit his studies for a thousand and still grinds away, and becomes sick if his grade descends to A — in anything. Davis Hall has no claim for him, but New London is not far away. “Give me more worlds to conquer, " will be his cry when he leaves us, and by the way, Harold is not responsible for his name. 39 THE: VICTORY ' GRIST Harry Der Bogosian Providence, R. I. “Bog” “Doc” Civil Engineering Class baseball (3). “Doc” came here from Technical High to study Civil Engineering, so that some day he may go back to a remote little country in Europe and perform some wonderful engineering feats. Fortunately, he promises that he will not leave Kingston until he puts the roads in condition where one may be able to travel from the station to the college in a machine, and find all four wheels still attached when he gets there. “Bog” has made such a record in his studies that we envy his marks. His readiness to solve a difficult problem in algebra or physics has won him many friends. When it comes to Thermo and Mechanics, “Bog” is there, but his favorite is E. E. I. (?) Harry intends to go to his native land and practice civil engineering. Francis Pierce Brightman Westerly, R. I. “Frank” “Bright” Electrical Engineering This specimen of the worker’s union escaped from high school in ’17 and arrived at Kingston the following fall. His voice was raised in argument on the debating teams of his Freshman and Sophomore years; and since then it has been raised in many arguments on the method of doing problems. Almost every Monday r.ight his head is poked into various rooms about the campus and he gives vent to his war-cry, “Any Laundry tonight?” He is feared and respected by the Freshmen as King of the chemistry supply room. One of his diversions is canoeing with one of the fair sex from across the campus. His success in life seems assured to anyone who knows his industrious habits. Rose Butler Newport, R. I. “Rose” Education “I hate trig, that is why I want to stick it out,” is the attitude Rose takes towards her difficulties. Rose is a graduate of Normal School, and after teaching feeble minded children, decided to become a student; that is why she is at Rhode Island Rose is an optomist and a sure cure for the blues. It wasn’t long after Rose “hit the campus” that she was able to imitate the Profs to perfection. Here’s hoping that the science courses here will bring her the results she anticipates. 40 RHODE- ljiAND -STATE (DL1DGE ■ Mary Catherine Campbell, 2 K Providence, R. I. “May” Home Economics Captain Basketball Team (1); Student Council (D, (2); Com- mencement Play (2). “The Campbells are coming Oh, Ho! Oh, Ho! " Stand aside please, the champion debater is in the lead. “May” has the enviable ability for absorbing knowledge without the aid of text books. But physics and mathematics have always been her specialty. Never- theless she is a step child of the “Speed Class.” Do you remember her as the captain of our Freshman Basketball Team, and the Oh, so appropriate reward she gave to those who made the baskets? Fresh- men chcm lab and its association has had such a strong call- ing for Mart ' that she has been a frequent visitor there. Mary is a good all-around sport, with a propensity for a good time, which she shares right and left with the rest of us. Rose Mary Carr, — K Providence, R. I. “Roscm’ry” “He, He” Applied Science Soph. Hop Committee (2); Glee Club (2), (3); Basketball ( I ) ; Chairman Dance Committee junior Prom. (3). Can she dance? Can she sing? “Rosie” established her name among the notables of our college during her Freshman year, by writ- ing poems that gave the students a good lime at the expense of " Jawn” and the “Eds” in general. Among the members of the “Ravies,” Rose is a keen and active member, working always for the " cause.” Although she is the only co-ed upholding the Applied Science Course, she doesn’t have to argue much to show the other juniors its advantages. And as for the Sunday Bus! Rose says, “Those who don’t go on our weekly trips, miss half their college education.” Arthur Lincoln Clark, (-) X Jamaica Plain, Mass. “Art” Agriculture Class Treasurer (1); Hockey (1); Class Football (1), (2); Man- ager Track ( 1 ); Btacon Board (1 ), (2); Soph. Hop (2); Manager Rope Pull (2). “Art” started in his college work at M. A. C. but decided the life was too strenuous and went to work. It is one of his “dark secrets” why he quit work, but quit he did after three years of it, and registered as a “special” at Rhode Island in the fall of ’14. How- ever, he soon became a regular. “Art” has always been considered as one of Davis Hall’s most regular visitors. In the summer of ' 19, “Art” took the big step and got married. That fall he returned to Kingston and resumed his studies. No work is too hard and no position too exacting for “Art.” He has always been and will be a loyal worker for Rhode Island. 41 TH VICTORY- GRIST ' Bernard Ambrose Connolly, JAW Brockton, Mass. “Bernie” Electrical Engineering Class Baseball (i), (2); Class Football (1), (2); Basketball (1), (2); Assistant Manager Football (3); Sergeant (3). Handicapped by having his name affiliated with the town of Brockton, “Bernie” faces the world with a smile that takes everyone with it. This fact probably explains why he has such an unexcelled rating with the inhabitants of Davis Hall. This smiling youth pans out well in all his studies, and when not engaging in class athletics, or in the duties of manager, “Bernie " is always ready to show the other fellow how to do problems in Thermo or Mechanics. After receiving his degree in electrical engineering we have no idea what will happen. Whatever it is “Bernie,” we know you can handle it. Everett Adams Copeland, B P Providence, R. I. “Cope” “Ant” Electrical Engineering Class Track (.1); Corporal (2); Relay Team (3). “Cope " blew into town from Cranston High early one morning way back in the dark ages when the co-eds ate in East Hall. “Cope” was noted for his speed when a mere Freshman and since then has developed Kis stride so that he arrives at Lanza’s door just in time to see it close for the day. " Cope” exhibits his greatest speed when he hears, “Two men wanted for a game of cards.” After graduating “Cope” is sure to be successful, as his bursts of speed are remarkable. Elizabeth Edith Davis Newport, R. I. “Bess” “Wuzzic” Home Economics News Department Beacon (2), (3); Grist Board (3); Commence- ment Play (2); Basketball Team (1); Glee Club (2), (3); Chairman Reception Committee Junior Prom (3). “Put some snap into it!” Who’s speaking? Or rather who belongs to those eyes? Rowdy Dow! I’ll never tell. “Bess,” one of the step-children of the “speed class” allows no one to blight her ambitions. What she won’t do to help have a good time isn’t worth mentioning. The candy she gets would sink a ship; if you don’t believe it ask the junior girls. Technical High was Elizabeth’s preparatory training, and she shows the results of its splendid course in Home Economics. Can she cook? I’ll say she can! Although “Bess” informs us that she expects to do social service work, her pet subject, this year, is Bacteriology. 42 RHODE- IjlAND jWE COLlEGE L V Edwin Marshall Deery, A A V Boston, Mass. “Ed” “Eddie " Agriculture Class Football (i); Class Baseball (2); Treasurer Student Council (3); Editor-in-chief Grist (3); Assistant Manager Baseball (3). The Chinese prince came to us from that center of the world, Boston. He says “If it wasn’t for Boston the other cities wouldn’t be on the map. " Ed is a great down-the-lincr, jazz artist and piano player, but most of all an ardent Aggie with a wonderful line. He’s an ardent supporter of college activities and is “there” wherever there is anything doing. He is a good student and always prepared to take the“ Aggie Pro’s” into camp. He was a strong down-the-liner until — but the best of us do fall and now he’s a member of the Sunday afternoon walking club. We have great hopes for him after graduat- ing and the best wishes of the class are with him. Edmund Cecil Eastwood, X A Providence, R. I. “Eastman” “Easty” Agriculture Class Track (1), (2); Class Baseball (1), (2); Class Football (1), (2); Varsity Football (3), (3); Corporal (2). “Easty” wandered into this village from Olneyville, but he soon adapted himself to this environment so that you’d hardly know the difference. With hopes of being a second Luther Burbank he delved into agriculture pursuits. In a short time “Easty” developed from an ordinary goal-post to a slashing guard, and became prominent through his long distance tackles behind the line of scrimmage. “Easty” holds the undisputed record for aliases, having no less than a dozen chalked up against him. After a year’s vacation he returned to us the same old “jazz hound” and “ladies’ man.” The crowning point in his career will be on the day he makes his initial visit into the mysteries of Davis Hall. Willard Harding Ford, B $ Avon, Mass. “Flivver” Civil Engineering Class Basketball (1). Three years ago this young blonde haired youth landed on the soils of Kingston Hill. Although not a Rhode Islander, he has won distinction in this institute by his most noticeable absence from classes. “Flivver” is an occasional visitor “down the line” to see more (Seymour), and to see less of his torn begrimed, and battered books, dusty with disuse. Although a speeder in name he is not fast enough to make Lanza’s door before it is closed to all knowledge seekers. “Fliv,” for all his failings has a determinate mind and with this to guide him through life, he will no doubt follow the path of 43 THE VICTORY ' GRIST Carl Edwin Fritz, B P Providence, R. I. “Fritzy” “Honyock” Chemical Engineering Soph. Hop Committee (2); Grist Board (3). Carl spent his first year in traveling back and forth in the bus as one of our worthy day students. During his second year, “Frit- zy” decided he would go to college. Carl is now seeking that belated knowledge in hopes of in the future securing that much sought for sheep skin. Fritz is an illuminous character, eagerly seeking, but not sought, for when a package issues from the pocket of a male friend, he is always ready to accept and smoke that most covetous cigarette. Although Carl has never shocked anyone with his marks, he is an earnest worker and attacks everything in the same manner. Here’s hoping that some day we may see “Fritzy” as a prominent chemical engineer. Milton Warren Gardiner, A X A Saylesville, R. I. “Zip” _ Civil Engineering Class President (1), (2), (3); Polygon (?). (4); President Y.M.C.A. 3 ; Vice-President Y.M.C.A. (4); Glee Club (1). 12); Class Football (1) . (2); Class Baseball (3); Class Hockey (1), (2); Class Track (1), (2) ; Chairman Soph. Hop Committee (2); Junior Prom (3); Military Ball ' (3); Captain (3); Major (4). " Zip” floated in with the class of 1920, from far away Saylesville. After becoming “High Mogul” of his class he floated through Under- wood’s Pond ahead of 24 other Freshmen and duplicated the feat again the next year. Although Milton says, “Aw, She ain’t my girl,” he tears home ever) ' Friday and we sec him again Monday morning. He is greatly attached to the old school, though, and is always ready to do his part. In future years we expect to see this “Civil” recon- structing the “Grand Trunk”, and hashing over again “the member that failed.” Gladys Darling Gerstle, 0 A A Woonsocket. R. I. “Glad” Home Economics Commencement Play (2). Gladys Darling Gerstle often known as Darling Gladys Gerstle. Parties and dances arc her delight no matter where they are. In athletics her abilities arc complete, for she is able to “paddle her own canoe.” We all know her wonderful executive ability, so it is with less trepidation than might be usual, that we are looking forward to see her as the mayoress of Woonsocket, the famous head of the suffra- gettes. It is the wish of all of us that in the future her Home Economics course will be practically and not theoretically applied. 44 RHODE- IJtAND -JTAIE (DL1DGE Gertrude Grossman Providence, R. 1. “Gert” Education Assistant in Business Department of Grist (3). Gertrude’s ambitions did not satisfy her at Normal School. When she heard that she could transfer to Rhode Island as a junior she jumped at the chance. We can ' t blame her. “Gert” has the honor of being the first student to take advantage of the course in educa- tion here. It wasn’t long after Gertrude’s debut that we discovered that there was an orator among us. " Gert” is there when it comes to public speaking. She says, “The larger the audience the more inspiration I get.” With your conscientious nature and ambition, we know that you will succeed at anything you attempt. Albert Henry Holley, A A W Providence, R. I. “Al” Chemical Engineering Class Baseball (2); Assistant Manager Basketball (3); Manager Basketball (3). “Hey Al, get up, it’s six o’clock.” The poor tired “mail” man arises to start his wearisome day. “Al” is a staunch follower of “down the line” and may be heard at any time telling how he won the “hand painted lily” in Wakefield. “Al” is one of the best “lil” philosophers on the campus and sure does live up to his belief that it is always best to “Say it in Jazz.” “Henry” started out to be a Chemical Engineer and has worn out a great deal of shoe leather walking from his desk to the office to report “unknowns.” Al’s winning smile and ability to make friends is sure to put him on the “path of success.” Bertha Isabelle Hughes, 2 K Providence, R. I. “Buffa” “Bert” Home Economics Basketball (1); Class Secretary (2), (3); Glee Club (2), (3); Y.W.C.A. Social Committee (2). “Who’s got an alarm clock? I’m going to get up at five to- morrow and study.” When we first heard this from our “Olneyvillc Queen,” we feared a grind had come among us. Bone rimmed glasses and studious intentions fooled us at first, but we soon learned she was one of us. This little lady never worries nor hurries. She has found the secret of happiness and never looks for trouble. Dancing is her favored amusement, though she does not scorn basketball or Sunday P. M. walks. If you have never heard “Bert” tell a story, visit Davis tomorrow and add the finishing touch to your college career. 45 THE VICTORY ' GRIST Esther Lucile Kohlberg, 2 K Barrington, R. I. “Lu” “Lucil” Home Economics Social Committee (i); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Commence- ment Play (2); Glee Club (2); Secretary Student Council (3) Cir- culating Manager Grist (3). This is Lucile, she needs no introduction. “Lu” has made hcr- s:lf popular by her ever readiness to do her share in college activi- ties. Nothing seems to worry her, not even studies, but she is always ready with an answer. Nevertheless it is safe to say that Lucile never finds it necessary to burn the midnight oil. hen it comes to the “Speed Class. " “Lu " is another step-child. She is al- ways ready fora good time, whether it be canoeing, skating, hiking or dancing. We wish you the best of success in the world, Lucile. Raymond Charles LaPerche, P I K Providence, R. I. “Ray” Chemical Engineering Class President (1); Polygon (3). “Ray” is one of those quiet fellows who never have very much to say, and yet arc always on the go. He is almost a personification of perpetual motion, for as soon as he finishes a class, he tears back to his work in the chemistry laboratory. He is a conscientious stu- dent and a good listener. He is always ready to take his constant companion — that strong old pipe— from his mouth and join in with his hearty laugh. Although “Ray” is to be seen at all social func- tions, the co-eds have never played a very great part in his college career. Samuel Joseph Levy, E II Providence, R. I. “Tefko” Civil Engineering Class Football (1); Class Baseball (1), (2); Class Basketball (2). “Sam” was very fond of tripping merrily over the railroad lies while a youngster. He has travelled extensively, even to far away Olncyvillc. He soon tired of this life, however, and decided to become a “Civil” at Rhode Island. In fact, he made a record for his civility while a Freshman. His great cry is that he is always underfed, yet “Tefko” stands well up in the “Dining Hall Course.” “Sam” enjoys “Pa’s” classes very much and is always relating some rather queer anecdotes of the discussions between “Pa” and his boys. With his earnestness and smiling countenance we feel sure that “Tefko” will make good. RHODE- IjiAND ;(WF: COLLEGE V Pasqualino Martelli Essex, Conn. “Marty” Civil Engineering Class Honors (l), (2); Class Basketball (2); Corporal (2). Where is Essex? Oh, that’s a little “Biscuit City” in the wilds of Connecticut. “Marty” created a stir when he informed us that he had migrated from Essex to the capital of the “nutmeg” state. On account of his willingness to help the unfortunate c persistently come to him in quest of information, “P remarkable “pedagogical ability.” He is one of “I " and nothing pleases him more than to argue with “P even if it only concerns the “Chickenville Railroad.” has shown followers .-er trifles Marty” has n life, one is to get his B.

Beacon (2); Grist Board (3); Student Council (3); Captain Rope Pull (2); Scholastic Honors (1), (2). Hey, “Sam,” what did you get for the third example? “2.95.” Hang it, 1 got that one wrong. There you have “Sam.” He’s an authority on engineering and his ability to use his common sense caused his debut into Davis Hall society as an instructor in coach physics. “Mac” is a prominent “down the liner " and stands ace high amongst the “terpsichorean artists.” “Sam” made his “rep” in his first two years when he had the low average of 98 for all his subjects. It is safe to say that “Mac” will graduate with the highest honors of anyone who has been at Rhode Island. Leon John Messerlian Edgewood, R. I. “Mess” “Blinky” Chemical Engineering “Mess” started in as a Mechanical Engineer, but found that H2S was much stronger than steam and consequently we have with us today “Blinky” the chemist. “Mess” is very clever with the fiddle and is an important member of the East Hall Jazz Band. In his Sophomore year “Mess” was fifty per cent, of the German class. The class started with five members, was reduced to two and ended up with zero. When “Mess” graduates he intends to teach mathe- matics for a year and then start an industrial plant where he expects to carry on experiments. His life work will be devoted to finding a certain chemical which will do away with worry. 47 THE: VICTORY- GRIgT Walter Webster Moore, B P Providence, R. I. " Bugs” “Jess” Agriculture Bfacoii Board (i), (2), (3); Corporal (2); Captain (3); Grist Board (3). Three years ago the train pulled into Kingston and deposited our " dear little Walter” on the platform. Bewildered as he stood there, he spied the college portals and decided to take up the “aggie” course. He was one of those quiet, sedate “green as grass " Fresh- men who never become prominent until their second year. Davis Hall never claimed any of “Bugs” “knock ’em all dead” faculties as his lovable characteristics were long ago centered upon a certain farmerette from the northern part of the State. If Yvalter’s hopes come true we may expect to find him in a few years married and settled down on a large farm in Greenville, where he will be con- sidered the Aggie magnet of that town. James Patrick O’Brien, A A V ' ; A T A Woonsocket, R. I. “O’Bie” Applied Science Class Baseball (2); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Military Ball Committee (2); Student Council (3). Three cheers for Woonsocket! Whenever you hear these familiar words on the campus, you may be sure that “Shames " O’Brien and his gang of Woonsocket clean-ups arc nearby. “O’Bic” has tried all the courses here. He started as a short course student, then tried a Special Course, then Applied Science, and finally some F.nginccring courses. “O’Bie” has two of the greatest assets that anyone could have, a wonderful personality and a still more wonderful “line.” He is valued by his associates as an orator, doctor, moulder, decorator, fusser, and boxing promotor. At one time " O’Bie” was under the doctor’s orders to take walks. Many were the Gracc-ful wonders of nature that were discovered on these journeys. It is a safe bet that whatever line of work O’Bie undertakes he will make good. Howard James O’Connell, B Providence, R. I . “Okie” Agriculture Track (1); Glee Club (2), (4). Way back in the dim distant past “Okie " was one of our illustrious day students. Commuting evidently did not agree with him, for in his second year he took up his residence with us on the Hill. Though very unobtrusive in himself, his marks show the result of conscientious work. Although “Okie” has never turned this little world on Kings- ton Hill inside out, he has been a whole hearted supporter of all that Rhode Island stands for. “Okie” spent a summer vacation trying to instill the principles of successful gardening into the one-track minds of the city grammar school children. We may later hear of him as a Government Agricultural Agent. 48 RHODE- lJlAND JT 3E- ©LIEGE •L 4 Joseph Edward O’Neill Brockton, Mass. “Joe” Civil Engineering Glee Club (i); Honors (i), (2); Captain Class Debating Team (2); Corporal (2); Varsity Debating Team (3). “Joe” is one of that carlot of fellows that come down from Brock- ton every year. Like a true representative of the shoe city, he brought down a large supply of shoes and as soon as he was settled as a Freshman, started a thriving shoe business. So far, Joe has managed to avoid the snares of Davis Hall. It may be this, but anyway, he has found it easy to lead us all in the work here. Calc was easy for him, while Thermo and Applied are only pleasant pastimes. His study in the Dorm, has become a “scat of learning” for the less for- tunate ones in the class. He has made a name for himself that will be remembered when he enters “civil” life. Earl Greer Palmer Hope Valley, R. I. “Pete” Electrical Engineering “Pete” is one of our travelling “studes” and his stays on the campus each day arc of a definite length. “Pete” is a loyal Rhode Islander, nevertheless, and can be heard at all times upholding the dignity of Rhode Island. On the “bus” he is monarch of all he surveys, and is chief councillor and advisor of the travelling men of the class of ’23. He is a conscientious student and a willing worker. Although hampered by late trains “Pete” manages to show up each day and is always prepared to “crack the quizzes.” We wish you the best of luck and success, “Pete.” Joseph Wallace Peckham, B $ Newport, R. I. “Pccky” “J. Wireless” Electrical Engineering Beacon Board (1), (2), (3); Scholastic Honors (2); Corporal (2); Sergeant Wireless Squad (3). Although born and bred an “aggie,” “Pecky” decided to be an engineer, and so journeyed over to Kingston to tackle Lanza’s courses. His motto is, “Life is just one mechanics problem after another.” Although he is a quiet chap, we understand that he has a knowledge of the inner secrets of Davis Hall. He is a great musician when it comes to the flute, but since someone stole this much coveted instru- ment, he has spent most of his time trying to hit a musical note with a “wireless key.” Some day we expect to hear of him as a radio engineer. It is rumored that he expects to establish communication between Biscuit City and Usqucpaugh, in the near future. 49 TH VICTORY- GRIgf] Rocco Pezzullo Providence, R. I. “Roy” “Hilarious” Applied Science When this, our Apollo, first managed to make his way to Kings- ton Hill, ’twas said that Davis I fall turned out in gala attire. " Roy” started out with the idea of becoming a chemistry engineer, but due to his love of chasing butterflies, he immediately decided to take Applied Science. Because of h is boisterous ways, “Roy” has often been called “Hilarious.” Whenever tumult reigns in the Dorm, “Hilarious” will always be found in the center of activities, yelling at the top of his lungs and wearing a mischievous grin. Through his winning smile and sunny disposition, Roy has gained many friends and has won the admiration and respect of his fellow students. Irene May Sheehan, O A A Edgewood, R. I. “Birdie” Home Economics Chairman Refreshment Committee Junior Prom. (3). “All good things come in small packages.” “B. S. " looked more attractive to this young lady than a mere “B. A.” so she decided to move from Brown at the end of her Freshman year. “Birdie” firmly believes that woman’s place is in the home. She never lets work interfere with pleasure, and is seen flitting about the dance hall at all formats and informals. Flutter, flutter, now she’s perched at the window for a good view ’cross the campus. Irene is noted for her long words, her pluckincss, her “frank”ness, and her loyalty to her class. After graduating she will further her education with cither an M. S. or M. R. S. P Isaac Thornton Sherman, B P Newport, R. I. “Ike " Agriculture Corporal (1); Sergeant (2). “Whoa! Back up!” Six feet and two inches of bone slid off the train followed by a trunk big enough to pack Kingston in, and wanted to know if they used French curves in chemistry. “Ike” passed his Freshman year quietly studying the great problems of an “Aggie.” Since then however, he has undergone a marvelous change. “Oh! how he can sing and dance!” “Ike” joined the " Wakefield Dancing Club” but Florence moved to Massachusetts, and “Ike” now plays the co-eds. With his cheerful smile and large store of energy he is sure to make good and we all wish him the best of luck. 50 RHODE- I5AND JTATE ©LIEGE Waldo Albert Smith Slocum, R. I. “Waldo” “Smithy” Agriculture Here he is, our smiling Doug. Fairbanks from Sluckum. Waldo began his career at Kingston as a day student, and claims he will remain one as long as the old horse lives. Rain or shine we can always expect our Ben Hur from Sluckum to come dashing into our quiet village at two minutes of eight, to tackle the problems of the day. He has repeatedly declined to break into Kingston society circles and cares not for the weaker one across the campus. How- ever, be that as it may, who knows what the old horse might tell. Always cheerful, industrious and a great little debater, we warn Slocum to watch out when Waldo graduates. Louis Stillman, E II Brooklyn, N. Y. “Laz” Electrical Engineering Class Football (i); Class Baseball (i), (2); Class Basketball (2). Here we have “Laz,” the “Brooklyn kid,” the “mystery man.” He was bom in the land of Bolsheviki, dragged up in Providence and then shipped to the big town. When “Louis” was a boy the doctor said he had electricity in his hair, now he is trying to find the reason for it. “Laz” is the comedian of the class and always ready with a humorous saying. He is the inventor of the “Barkorovitch Shunt Motor.” After graduating “Laz” expects to go into partner- ship with “Thomas Edison” in order to give “Tom” a few important tips on electricity. Sherburne Pride Sweetland, B $ Rumford, R. 1. “Sweet” Electrical Engineering Glee Club (1); Rope Pull (1), (2); Bracvn Board (1), (2), (3); Class Debating (2); Secretary Y.M.C.A. (2); Manager Basketball (3). This bright looking individual is “Sweet,” who joined our ranks four long years ago, in search of knowledge. The co-eds have not disturbed him in his quest. The nearest they ever came to getting him was in his Sophomore year, when he joined the cooking class. Although he has not fallen for the co-eds he is a frequent visitor to Maine. As a prohibitionist he stands unequalled having gone through Underwood’s Pond in both his Freshman and Sophomore years. His time has never been claimed by “down the line” or “the magazine course,” as he has been too busy with his studies. Si f THE: VICTORY- GRIST Richard Christie Taft, X Brockton, Mass. “Dick” “Christie” Mechanical Engineering Manager Freshman Football (i); Soph. Hop Committee (2); Rope Pull (2); Blanket Tax Committee (3) (4); Manager Football (4); Polygon (4). Among the discoveries of the twentieth century, there can hardly be described this one from Brockton. Deeply impressed with the advantages offered at Rhode Island, he joined forces with the class of 1920. “Christie” never yielded to the temptations of Davis Hall, but soon adjourned to the big city four miles below. He has since worn out the trail to that big burg. As for studies “Dick’s” motto is, “Never let yor studies interfere with your college life.” “Dick” is also a member of the “Treat ’em Ruff Trio.” Nathan: Torgan, Jr. . E 77 Providence, R. I . “Nate” Electrical Engineering “Nate” migrated to the wild and wooly hamlet of Kingston, three years ago, from Providence Technical High School. He is an ardent devotee to physical culture and can be found after every meal doing “setting-up” exercises in the Dining Hall. The only claim which he has on Mother Earth is based on yards and yards of legs and a cackling bazoon voice. And his feet, my what feet! If you see him coming your way just scintillate to one side or his feet may smother you, — we mean the size of course. Incidentally this long cool drink takes great delight in playing the “Goose” with some little baby “Duckling,” as is his occupation in Providence on week-ends. Upon graduating “Nate” will go to Biscuit City to take a position as an E. E. I. Prof, at Shirley College.

Taft assistant Manager Bernard A. Connolly Coaefo Fred Murray About forty candidates answered the call soon after college opened in Septem- ber and the prospects for a good team was soon evident. Six letter men were back with a lot of promising men from the Freshman and Sophomore classes. As usual the Brown team was our first opponent and Coach Murray drove the team hard in order to get it in trim for our old-time rival. With but a week’s practice we went up to Brown confident of making a good showing. As a result of a mass meeting held earlier in the week much enthusiasm was developed and the team was accompanied by a rather large crowd of loyal students. But lack of practice proved to be the undoing of R. I. The team started off well but numerous fumbles and poor generalship at times allowed Brown to pile up a 27-0 score. Only straight football was in evidence and the game was mediocre due to the number of fumbles. Turner played a good game for R. I. and his tackling was one of the bright spots of the game. Murphy at half-back was the only man who made any appreciable gains. The team then went to Wesleyan the following week and there ran up against a team of veterans. Our team was weakened by injuries and fumbles again, as in the Brown game, proved R. I.’s undoing. The team was handicapped by the lack of a punter and Wesleyan gained considerable ground because of this lack. Our diminutive backfield started off like world-beaters in the first quarter but seven penalties for off-side took the heart out of the team and from then on the game was all Wesleyan. However, the R. I. line showed great improvement, Wesleyan’s gains being mostly by forward passes and recovered fumbles. Knott and Hirtle played a good game in the line. The score was 35-0. 7 ' THE VICTORY- GRIST Boston University was our next opponent and it was by unfortunate mistakes by the referee which allowed us to be beaten 14-6. The ball was in B. U.’s territory most of the game. Toward the end of the first quarter the R. 1 . forwards blocked a punt and Malloy scooped it up and raced across the line for R. I.’s score. The attempt at a goal failed. During the ' second quarter neither team was able to gain consistently but the play was in B. U.’s territory throughout most of the period. In the third quarter a long forward pass netted B. U.’s score. Call was fouled while attempting to catch the ball but this went by unnoticed. In the final quarter R. I. forced B. U. to punt, Call catching the ball on his own goal line. The ball was torn from his hands by an opposing player and the touchdown was allowed by the officials. R. I. was inside of B. U.’s ten-yard line when the game ended. Malloy, Seabury and Hirtle put up a fine game for R. 1 . With several new men in the lineup the team went to Stevens but returned a loser 31-2. R. I.’s score came in the third period as a result of a punt fumbled behind the goal line. At times R. I. outplayed her opponents but lacked the scoring punch. Stevens scored her points by long forward passes and a couple of “shoestring” plays which worked to perfection. R. I .’s defence was weak at times. Tweedell threw the opposing backfield for losses time and again, while Murphy played a strong game although injured several times. Seabury and Hirtle played well on the defence stopping plays before they got started. In our next game Holy Cross defeated us 29-3. Their defence was too strong for us to penetrate while R. I.’s line was weak. The R. I. backs were stopped almost as soon as they got started. Our only score came as a result of a recovered fumble and a pretty drop kick by Johnson from the 35-yard line. Norris, a product of the Freshman team, played a strong game and tackled hard and clean. Injuries very seriously handicapped the team, no less than six of the regulars being out of the game. We next played M. A. C. at Kingston in a fast hard game in which luck played an important part in our defeat by the score of 19-n. In the first quarter on a series of skin tackle plays and end runs R. I. carried the ball to M. A. C.’s 40-yard line. A drop kick failed. Later Turner recovered a fumble and a suc- cession of line bucks brought the ball to M. A. C.’s 30-yard line from which John- son kicked a field goal. In the second quarter the ball was worked to R. I.’s 25-yard line. The M. A. C. quarter threw a forward pass which struck a player on the head and bounced into an M. A. C. player’s hands, and M. A. C. scored its first touch- down. M. A. C. scored its second touchdown as a result of a recovered fumble with line plunges and a long forward pass. Later R. I. scored two points when 72 RHODE- (SAND JTAtE- ©LlDGE J an M. A. C. back fell on the ball behind his own goal line. On the next play Johnson receiv ed a punt and ran 25-yards through a broken field for a touchdown. In the fourth quarter a fumbled ball rolled into the crowd and was recovered by an M. A. C. player. Three long runs placed the ball across the line for the visitor’s final score. Malloy played a great game while Turner at end broke up play after play. Johnson and Murphy made some good gains. Worcester Tech was our next opponent and only once during the game was she able to get the ball out of her own territory for any length of time, that once being when she scored her lone touchdown. R. I. outplayed Tech throughout the whole game but a muddy field handicapped our light backfield considerably. Toward the last of the first period a Tech back broke through the line of scrimmage and brought the ball to the 20-yard line. R. I. held for three downs but on the fourth a short forward pass scored a touchdown for Tech. The attempt at a goal failed. R. I. braced in the second half and Worcester made but one first down. In the last quarter a pretty forward pass from Murphy to Turner brought the ball to W. P. I.’s three-yard line and Johnson carried it over on the next play. The attempt at a goal looked mighty good to the R. I. men but the referee thought other- wise. Turner and Mowry at ends and Murphy and Johnson in the backfield played a strong game for R. 1 . In the final game of the season with Connecticut Aggies at Kingston, R. 1 . lost 7-3 after playing a spectacular game and outplaying the visitors the whole way. After receiving the kick-off, line bucks by Murphy, Johnson and Nordquist and a 30-yard forward pass to Nordquist brought the ball to Connecticut’s one-yard line. R. I. was off-side on the next play and another penalty brought the ball back to the visitors’ 20-yard line from where Johnson kicked a field goal. Up to the fourth quarter R. I. was within scoring distance several times but lacked the necessary punch to put the ball across. In the quarter R. I. was forced to punt on a fourth down. Nord quist was waiting for the pass but Seabury hurled the ball over his head and when the back recovered the ball, it was on the eight-yard line. A short forward pass by the Aggies brought the ball to the one-yard line where for two downs the R. I. line was impenetrable. In the fourth down the ball was just barely put over. R. I. was gradually advancing toward Connecticut’s goal when the whistle ended the game. The result came as a great blow. After playing one of the greatest games during the season and forcing the fight the whole way, the unfortunate incident in the fourth quarter capped the climax of a season full of injuries. Only two men who played in the last game started the season. No less than fifteen men played in the backfield during the season while only nine men made their letter. The coach was forced to use Nordquist in the back- 73 THE: -VICTORY- GRIST ■ v J ’ field even though he had only one day’s practice before the game. Potter, Murphy and Seabury played a great game while Nordquist broke up every forward pass that came his way. No blame can be attached to the coach for the showing of the team. Many of the best men were forced to leave the team on account of injuries and in no two games did the same men start. Knott, Malloy, Holden, Casey, Brownell, Fleck and Call were forced to leave the team. The team played finely toward the end of the season and with an even break it should have won a large percentage of its games. The scores: R. I. o Brown, 27 R.

Ford Fred Murray tUbr i9io dragon As soon as college opened in January, practice got under way. The team had Malloy and Spencer left from last year and a large number of promising men from the entering class. With a little over a week’s practice a game with Brown was staged on our own floor. The crowd of excited and enthusiastic spectators saw a fine clean game. In the first half Brown jumped into the lead by some clever passing and team work and the half ended 7-4 in favor of Brown. But in the second half R. I. played rings around her old rival, taking the aggressive and by superior playing finally came out winners by a 25-19 score. At right guard Antu- lonis was all over the floor and broke up play after play while Spencer and Malloy were the heavy scorers for R. I. The next game was a practice game with the Bristol Y. M. C. A. team. The game was fast at times but the rough tactics of the visitors handicapped the V arsity. The team showed up better than in its game with Brown, the team work having improved considerably. As in the Brown game Antulonis played a fine game, while Malloy had seven baskets and two fouls to his credit which aided the Varsity to a great extent in winning 33-14. The Varsity then journeyed to Storrs to play our old rival C. A. C. The team ran away from the Aggies to the tune of 30-18. It was a fast and interesting game throughout. Malloy starred with six baskets to his credit while Spencer caged eleven fouls and one basket. Another practice game was played in which Dean Academy was the victim 22-19. The game was a rough and tumble affair and very uninteresting to watch. The spectators were not very enthusiastic and gave vent to their opinions time and again. There was frequent squabbling over decisions and two men were ejected from the game for rough playing. 76 RHODE- IjiAND JTAIE ( UBGE The team then played a return game with Brown at Providence. Nearly every man in college was there and the girls were going 100% strong but a faculty ruling prevented them. The game was hotly contested throughout and the decision never seemed sure. Brown led at the end of the half 9-6. Millory got the first basket for Brown but Spencer failed in his try. Jordan of Brown then scored two baskets and Mallory followed with another. Then Antulonis for Rhody pushed two in and Holden followed with another and the half ended. Both teams went back for the second half with a vengeance. Malloy caged a basket and Spencer followed with a foul. The crowd went wild when he tossed in another. Flynn then went in for Malloy and Murphy took Holden’s place. This added the necessary punch and Flynn immediately caged a basket. Pieri of Brown duplicated and Murphy got another for R. I. Mallory failed in an attempt for a foul and Spencer had just scored a point on a foul for R. I. when the whistle blew and R. I. was the victor by the score 16-15. It was an exciting game from start to finish and the victory was R. l.’s third over Brown in two years. There were no individual stars for either team but Pieri of Brown got in some long baskets. R. I.’s next game was with New Hampshire State. Here the team ran up against a veteran combination and was forced to acknowledge their first defeat 42-18. It was a fast game, the fastest seen on the Durham floor in a number of years but the teamwork of the Granite State collegians was too much for Rhody. New Hampshire led at the end of the half 26-6, but in the second half R. I. took a brace and scored twelve points to Durham’s sixteen. Spencer played the best game for R. I. scoring four baskets and three fouls. On her own floor Rhode Island trimmed the Connecticut team for the second time by a score of 49-46. The game was fast and the lead see-sawed back and forth during the game, R. I. winning in the last few minutes of play. The score stood at 22 all at the end of the half. Swift and accurate passing featured the game. For R. I. Spencer led in the scoring with seven baskets and the same number of fouls. Malloy got eight baskets while Holden garnered six. Lockwood for the Aggies was a star with ten baskets and eight fouls. In the last game of the season R. I. defeated the strong Newport Naval Reserve team 39-34 at Kingston. It was the roughest game of the season on the home floor and it was due mainly to the fouls that the Newport team lost. The sailors played a whirlwind game during the first-half and it looked like curtains for R. I. when the score stood 22-7 against them. But in the second half the Reserves were swept off their feet by the fast and aggressive playing of the Rhode Island men. Baskets followed in quick succession and the final score stood 39-34 in favor of R. I. The sailors were reputed as having the strongest team in Southern New 77 THE - VICTORY ' GRIST England but our boys showed them what real fighting was. Spencer was the star for R. I. with six baskets and eleven fouls to his credit while Malloy had six baskets in his favor. After this last game Malloy was elected captain for the 1919-1920 season and he will have a fine nucleus to work with. Too much credit cannot be given to Coach Walker for the great team he put out and the wonderful fighting spirit he instilled into the team. Seven victories in eight starts being an exceptional record. Because of the dual defeat of Brown the team was given gold basketballs in recognition of its good work.

Has lam Fred Walker Captain Manager Assistant Manager Coach tlfjc 1910 Reason The college was indeed fortunate in securing an ideal coach, Fred Walker, who has handled many teams and has played professional baseball, besides being a fighter and a man with a great amount of push and zeal. With one letter man back from the previous year he was confronted with the great problem of developing a team. Indoor practise began the middle of March with a great number of candidates out and the outlook was promising. The great feature of the team was the “pep” and fight that had been instilled by Coach Walker. We went to Brown confident of a victory. The playing of the team was a sight to behold. Snappy fielding and spectacular catches thrilled the big crowd of spectators. The great twirling of both the pitchers, Hudson and Knight coupled with brilliant fielding prevented a score for either teams for twelve innings. But in the thirteenth the storm broke. Nordquist was out at first on a grounder to Coulter. Vreeland walked and Hudson fouled out to Erickson. Reed singled past first base and took second on the attempt to get Vreeland at third. Emmons, the next batter then hit a terrific line drive to the left-fielder who grace- fully muffled the ball and two R. I. men crossed the plate. Emmons took second and scored on Casey’s hit. Nichols was an easy out. In Brown’s half after two were out, Peckham reached second on Nordquist’s error and scored on Porter’s hit. The next man was out at first thus ending a most exciting game. The team was given a rousing banquet at the Narragansett Hotel and a theatre party at Keith’s thus celebrating a great day for R. I. Casey and Lucey made spectacular catches, while Hudson struck out sixteen men and allowed six hits. Emmons held up Hudson in great style and kept the few Brown runners hugging the sacks. For Brown, Coulter at second played fine ball while Porter starred at the bat with two hits in three times up. 5 6 7 8 9 io ii 12 13 R H E Innings Rhode Island Brown Batteries 1 2 3 0000000000003 000000000000 1 3 R.

The field was a sea of mud and the ball was very difficult to handle which accounted for the large number of errors. Nichols started to pitch for Rhody but he lacked control. A couple of passes, a sacrifice, a wild pitch and a three bagger accounted for Brown’s first three runs. Hudson was then rushed in but he fared no better and the final score stood 7-0 in favor of Brown. The only time R. 1 . was dangerous was in the third when they had three on and one down, but Knight tightened and retired the side without a score. Nichols pasted the pill for two hits while Vree- land knocked out a three bagger. Innings Brown Rhode Island Batteries 3 3 o o R. I.

The University of Maine was the first team played and although R. I. had the “peppiest organization seen on the local diamond for a number of years,” they lost 5-2. Maine scored 82 RHODE- lJlAND JTAIE ©LODGE J four runs in the third with the aid of three hits and two errors, but after that they got only one scrath hit off Nichols. The Maine pitcher was saved time and again by sensational fielding with a few one hand stabs thrown in, while the home team got a few flukey hits which helped them considerably. In the fifth Casey walked and stole second. Lucey and Vreeland fanned. Rhodes singled which scored Casey. Nordquist followed with another single sending Rhodes to third and he took second on the throw in. Emmons drove out a liner to left which was caught after a long run and sensational catch. Again in the eighth Nordquist and Emmons singled. Ford hit to right scoring Nordquist, Emmons taking third but a fast double play shut off the rally. Rhodes and Nordquist each got two hits.

Here the team seemed to have lost all the fight and pep they displayed the day before and the fielding and headwork was at its lowest ebb. This game was a disappointment to the team’s followers. Eleven errors and only four hits tells the story. The Colby pitcher didn’t have a thing on the ball compared to the pitching the team had been against all season. The only feature of the game was a triple in the fifth by Nordquist which scored two runs. Innings 1 2 3 4 5678 9 Colby 3 0 0 0 2031 X Rhode Island 0 0 1 0 2000 0 Batteries R. I.

The team was to have played Bates on a Saturday but on account of rain the game was played the following Monday. Meanwhile four of the best men broke training and the coach immediately sent them home, leaving only eight players. But Assistant Manager Haslam got into a suit and the game put up by the crippled team was a credit to the college and Coach Walker. The fellows gave the best that was in them and failed only because they lacked the proper team-work. The Maine papers commented on the wonderful fighting spirit of the team and although they lost 3-0 the fellows felt that they had made a good comeback. Hudson pitched a 83 TH ' VICTORY ' GRIgT j great game striking out fifteen and allowing only three hits, and with the proper support he should have won as Bates failed to earn a single run.

The team lost 8-5 in thirteen innings but it showed the coach that there were a few undis- covered players in college. The rebuilt team then took on M. A. C. and in a close and exciting game was finally returned a winner by a 2-1 score. With two out in the first inning, Casey singled and Hudson scored him with a screaming double to left and crossed the pan himself a moment later when Whitaker doubled to left-center. In the eighth M. A. C. succeeded in pushing a man across but Whyte was rushed in to relieve Turner, and the rally was checked by his port-side delivery. Turner pitched a fine game for R.

The game was fast and Hudson had the Tech boys under his thumb, allow- ing only five hits while his team-mates got ten. In the first inning O’Brien and Nordquist led off with hits and then executed a double steal. The Tech short- stop then booted Casey’s grounder scoring O’Brien, but Nordquist was out at the plate on a close play. In the third Reed hit safely and Lucey got a lift on Carlson’s second error. O’Brien beat out a bunt. Nordquist singled scoring Reed and Lucey. R. I. scored three in the eighth when Lucey and O’Brien hit safely, advanced a base on a passed ball and both scored on Nordquist’s double to left center. He immediately stole third and scored on Hudson’s line drive to left. O’Brien 84 RHODE- tflAND JTSfE- ©LIEGE J and Nordquist each collected three hits.

Had he started the game it may have resulted in a R. I. victory as he served up a fine article of ball but the damage had been done. Nordquist was the only R.

Considering the opposing pitcher, a former big-leaguer, the team did well to hold them to an 8-2 score. R. I . collected six hits, five of which were doubles. The next day the team played the Naval Training Station team. Turner pitched shutout ball for six innings but he weakened in the seventh. Hudson was sent in with the score 6-1 and with three on, Turner slipped on a cement cross- walk while going for a fly ball, and the drive went for a home run when it should have been an easy out. R. I. got two more in the eighth but the sailors came across with some heavy sticking in the ninth and won 9-8. The last game of the season was with Holy Cross, afterwards declared cham- pions of the East. R. I. started off like winners and scored first when, with two out, Call walked, O’Brien singled and Nordquist came through with a drive over first base, scoring Call. Nordquist was out at second on an attempted hit-and-run. After that it was all Holy Cross. Poor fielding by third base and the outfielders «5 THE ' VICTORY ' GRIST coupled with some terrific hitting gave Holy Cross 12 runs. The fielding of the Holy Cross infield was spectacular while R. I. made ten errors. Nordquist pulled off the star play of the game when he made a great running catch of a foul back of third. The sting of this overwhelming defeat was taken away when the fellows watched Brown being trimmed by a 14-0 score the next day.

The team played a hard schedule and with a team made up mostly of Freshmen and inexperienced players the results were more than good. The team has lost only two men and with the wealth of promising material in the present entering class, the outlook for the 1920 season is bright and the team ought to clean up. Hudson was elected captain for the 1920 season. Below are the batting and fielding averages of the players. Team batting, .200 Team fielding, .889 86 THE: ' VICTORY ' GRIST (Eracit Roland T. Pihl (Relay) Edward Gamble Harry F. Baacke Fred Walker Captain Manager Assistant Manager Coach Z )t 1010 Reason On account of the war the college had had no track team since the spring of 1916 but as soon as college opened in January, 1919, relay candidates were called out. The board track was soon put up and with the large number of promising candidates a good relay ' team was assured. A team consisting of Pihl, Johnson, Totman and Anderson, was picked to represent the college at the B. A. A. meet in Mechanics Hall, Boston, on March 1, 1919 with New Hampshire State College as our opponent. Each man was to run 390 yards. Totman started off well and held his own all the way around. Johnson took the baton from Totman and by running a pretty race handed a five-yard lead to Anderson. This R. I. man lost the lead but regained it when his man fell. Pihl running anchor man was just nosed out at the finish. The time was 3:17. Lack of money prevented the college from being represented on the field during the spring of 1919. But in September, without a track coach, the men went out of their own accord and began holding cross-country practice. The candidates were mostly Freshmen. After about a month’s practice a cross-country ' run with Brown was arranged to be held November I, 1919. The course was a trifle over four and one-half miles in length, the race starting and ending at the Athletic field. Seven men were entered from each college, the first ten finishing to count. After a pretty race, in which Chandler (R. I.) led the whole way, R. I. con- quered Brown by the score of 22-33. Excellent time was recorded. Chandler finished first with a 50-yard lead, in the good time of 25:20. Rhode Island got first, third, fourth, sixth and eighth places. The prospects for a successful 1920 season are exceptionally bright as there is a wealth of fine material in the Fresh- men class and with a good coach R. I. should be able to give a good account of herself in track. 88 RHODE HAND ;Mb ©LIEGE ■ ■ ■ ■■ $Jnbergrabuate TOearerg of tlje R. i. Maurice V. Murphy George J.

When the college was founded the military department was organized into a company of Infantry which, for purpose of instruction, was divided into two sections for Artillery Drill. At first uniforms were worn constantly and military courtesy was maintained. Later this was changed so that uniforms were worn only at drill, and the Artillery Drill was dropped from the course. And so through the years Military Training has been carried on even when the popular sentiment of the students and others has been against it. It was not until the United States entered the World War in 1917 that any real good could be shown to have come out of this work. But with the war came a call for men qualified to train and lead other men in the fields of France. In January of that year a unit of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps was established in connection with the War Department. Captain Dove who had been in charge of the military work at the college was placed at the head of this unit. In May of the same year twenty-one of the under-graduates went to Plattsburg, where they were joined by a number of the alumni who had gone direct to the first Officers’ training school. ' At the same time several men left for other branches of the ser- vice, such as the Naval Reserve, Air Service, and The Marine Corps. This was but the beginning of the work for Rhode Island and in the two years that followed three hundred and twenty-nine men represented the college on the hill. Of this number twenty-three made the supreme sacrifice. Early in 1918, the fact that there were not enough trained mechanics in the army became apparent to the War Department. Consequently places where men could be trained along certain lines of work were sought. The colleges of the country seemed to be the ideal places. In accordance with the W ' ar Department plans the college year 1917-1918 was brought to a very sudden close on April 28, 1918. Then followed a few days of active work for the officers of the institution. In the time up to May 7, the arrangements for the Officers’ quarters, barracks, hospital, and military offices had to be made. Besides this mechanics from the trades had to be arranged for. At this time Captain Dove was detailed to the Plattsburg Camp for the summer and his place as head of the military department was taken by Captain (later Major) Dana. On the 7th of May 252 men from New Jersey arrived and from that time for eight weeks Major Dana and his staff of four assistant officers taught the men the 128 RHODE- lJlAND JTAJE ©LEGE rudiments of squads right and left, and the mechanics taught them the trades which they were to use at the army cantonments to which they were sent upon com- pletion of the course. After this unit had completed its work it was followed by another unit of 263 men from Massachusetts. The trades which these men learned were automobile mechanics and drivers (205), carpenters (143), electricians (84), machinists (42), and blacksmiths (41). The total number of men was 515. After the second unit had completed its work most of the men were sent to army can- tonments, but 73 men seemed to have become lost here, remaining until September 25. As was stated in the report of the Board of Managers the work was rendered somewhat difficult by the failure of the War Department to make clear what the men were here for, to be trained as soldiers or as mechanics. The Officers did not want to neglect the soldier part of the training, as their own promotion depended on their ability to train the men in that line of work. Between the 25th of September and the 1st of October, it was necessary to make other changes in preparation for the advent of The Students’ Army Training Corps. At this time that was an entirely new branch of army service and was intended to prepare men for the Central Officers’ Training Schools which had been instituted after the first Plattsburg Camp. Major Dana was relieved of command and his place taken by Captain Doheny, who was assisted by nine commissioned Officers from the training camp at Plattsburg. The opening of school and the enrollment of the men in the S. A. T. C. was postponed on account of the influenza which was so prevalent at that time. However on the tenth of October, 268 men were enrolled and began their duties at the college. The difficulties with the S. A. T. C. were caused by the frequent changes which were made in the course by the War Department. No settled policy was determined upon for the first few weeks and finally a plan to divide the students according to age into classes eighteen, nineteen and twenty years old was effected. Certain courses were required of the men in each of these classes and the work was very inferior to regular college work. Some of the men left here and went to Central Officers’ Training Schools in two groups, one of which left here on Armistice day. Of the men going to these camps a few stayed after the Armistice and obtained commissions in the reserve corps. The larger part of them however returned again and began the new term on January 2, 1920. At this time the R. O. T. C. was reestablished and Captain Dove was, through the efforts of President Edwards, returned to the college as Professor of Military Science and Tactics. During the rest of the year that followed several Officers who had served in the army enrolled in the R. 0 . T. C. and assisted Captain Dove in the work. He was also assisted by Lieutenant Wentz who was left here after the S. A. T. C. in charge of the supplies. His work was not completed until the middle of June when he had sent off the last of the remaining stores. In addition to its distinctly military work the college furnished many men and women for special war extension work in agriculture and home economics. 129 I THE VICTORY ' GRIST Harold Lincoln Gardiner — with 1907.

The object of the council was to foster a greater sense of responsibility in the student body. During the past year it has been re-organized and the membership increased to twenty. The scope of work has been broadened, and through its committees — executive, activities, judiciary (men), judiciary (women), athletics and social room, and college development — the council is able to exert its influence in all phases of college life. With the admittance of the women to the general council, the women’s council ceases to function, since its work is done by the Women’s Judiciary Committee. 149 THE VICTORY ' GRI5T lee Club Hra rr Roland T.

The program of the year, though consisting of fewer numbers than customary, represented quality rather than quantity. The Harp Vocal Ensemble was perhaps the better of the two. The entertainers were accomplished musicians and rendered high grade selections in a very pleasing manner. The Crawford Adams Company, though not quite such finished performers, were good and gave a very interesting and original program. RUOD lJlAND ;(WI: ©LIEGE J £ljr Renton Cbitor=in=Cf)icf Frederick R.

Smith President Esther W. Peterson Vice-President Amy A. Whitford Secretary The Society was organized and officers elected shortly after college opened in January, 1919. Very little work was accomplished because of the fact that College was so late in starting its actual working schedule. Under the pressure required for the students to complete, as nearly as possible, a year’s work in the few short months, very little time was available for outside activities, and no definite debating schedule was attempted. •54 V-W c Elizabeth Stillman, ’20 President Louise Baker, ’20 Pice-President Flora Anderson, ’21 Secretary Charlotte Haupt, ’22 Treasurer The Y. W. C. U. is an organization, the purpose of which is to further the interests of young women students, both religiously and socially. Meetings are held once a week, when some speaker addresses the gathering on a topic of current interest. But that is not all. The annual reception for the Freshmen is given in September under the auspices of the Y. W. C. U. and Y. M. C. A. A very success- ful bazaar for the benefit of the Red Cross was held in December. Fairs and com- munity socials are not among the least of its successes. It can truthfully be said that a great deal of benefit is to be deriv ed from the Y. W. C. U. 55 YMCA Charles H. Wales President Milton W. Gardiner Pice-President Daniel O. Cargili Secretary-Treasurer After the opening of the college in January, 1919, the Y. M. C. A. was organ- ized in as near the same form as before the war interrupted its progress. For the first time, the local Y. M. C. A. provided some form of regular enter- tainment for the student body, in the form of moving pictures. The college was represented at the Northfield Conference for the first time in many years. 156 James E. Knott, Jr President Edmund C. Eastwood Pice-President Albert P. Sisson Secretary Douglas B. Seabury Treasurer The Agricultural Club of the Rhode Island State College was founded in 1907. This year it is organized with a strong and loyal crowd of supporters. The object of the club is to promote agriculture and further the interests of the members along agricultural lines. Meetings are held weekly. Every other meeting the club presents a motion picture of some phase of agricultural endeavor, which is instruc- tive for the members of the club and of interest to the rest of the college com- munity. At the rest of the meetings, members of the faculty and eminent agri- culturists have spoken on various subjects. A “Heck Ball” was given by the club in April, which proved to be an interest- ing inovation. 157 £f)ot c HlslantJ tatc College ocietp of Jttrcljnmcal engineers Horace W. Clarke, ’20 .President Samuel McKee, ’20 Vice-President Edwin H. Coker, ’22 .Secretary and Treasurer The Society of Mechanical Engineers was founded February 17, 1915. Due to the war interest was lacking until this year. On December 2, 1919, the society was reorganized and a new constitution was adopted. The object of this society is to promote an interest in the arts and sciences connected with engineering and mechanical construction. The principal means for accomplishing this purpose shall be the holding of meetings for the reading and discussion of papers relating to the above subjects. Among other lectures given this year, was one by Pres. H. W. Clark with the aid of stereopticon slides obtained from the F. W. D. Motor Truck Company. The Society has not as yet become affiliated with the national organization, but this step may be taken after the club is older. Meetings are held the first Monday night in each month. 158 Electrical Engineer -v jessesaa In 1913 the Rhode Island State College Society of Electrical Engineers became affiliated with the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, developing into a strong organization by the spring of 1917. Since the reopening of college the society has not reorganized. 159 Civil n iin ‘ T John W. Cruickshank, ’20. Joseph O’Neill, ’21 Joseph B. Byrnes, ’22 Louis E. Pastorini, ’22. . . . President V ice-President Secretary .Treasurer The Civil Engineer’s Club was organized in 1915. The meetings are held monthly. This plan was put into effect in order that good speakers might be obtained for the club. Men were brought here from the Barrett Cement Company, the Portland Cement Company and from several other firms. The aims of the club are to acquaint men in the course with the manufacture of the materials with which they arc to work later, and keep them in touch with the progress of the Civil Engineering world. 160 Leonard J. Kwasha, ’20 President Carl E. Fritz, ’21 . Secretary George Luther, ’20 Treasurer James O’Brien, ’21 Librarian In the rush of last year the Chemical Society was, like the most of the organiza- tions, practically out of existence. It was, however, started in the fall and has been doing very well with its bi-weekly meetings. The Society is fortunate in having the Chemical Faculty interested in it. Professors Jackson and Ince have given very interesting talks before the Society this year. A new feature of the Society is the Librarian. His duties are to look over the current chemical magazines and to make a res ume of the interesting and profitable articles for the members. A Committee was appointed to assist any of the members in obtaining work either temporary or permanent. The Society is open to any student interested in chemistry although the officers are limited to the two upper classes. 161 | THE: ' VICTORY- GRIST JPlanfeet ®ax Committer Arthur E.

ALL TRUTH; NO POETRY Continued) Give up the hated practice As the buildings you pass through, Of never saying, “Thank you” When the doors are held for you. We didn’t think it horrid — We quite enjoyed the rhyme — And thought about improvements. But really hadn’t time. Now we understand your feelings, There’s no need to sing a song; We know you’re right about it — The whole wide world is wrong. — UMP. XI 3. .3 ttmorc W right, -pij. £ .

L THE BEST IS THE CHEAPEST This is an old Italian proverb, but it is good sense in whatever language We choose to apply it par- ticularly to clothing, and more specifically to Browing, King Company’s Clothing.

WE WONDER One of our ex-licutenants tells of seeing a French soldier, his left arm cut off at the shoulder, walking along a street in a demolished French town. An army car, carrying a General drew up. “My good man,” said the General, “how does it happen that you have lost an arm and yet received no decora- tion ?” “I don’t know sir,” replied the soldier. “Even though you receive no decoration, you should at least be a First Lieutenant for the loss of one arm.” “That is too bad, sir, but what if 1 lost the other also?” “Then you should be made a Field Marshal.” Therefore, drawing his sword with a flourish the soldier cut off his other arm.

HEADQUARTERS FOR ALL DRUG STORE SUPPLIES RESURRECTED Apparently the gold medal for extreme miserliness will have to be awarded to the commuter who, on leaving his wife in the morning, forewarned her thus: “I may have to work late to-night, so in order that you may not worry, I’ll phone you at six o’clock. But when you hear the bell ring, don’t answer it — you will know what it means, and I shall get my nickel back.” Much to his annoyance, they were late for the game, arriving at the sixth inning. “What’s the score, Fred?” he asked a fan. “Nothing to nothing.” “Oh, splendid!” she exclaimed, radiantly, “we haven’t missed a thing.” xx Entering the World Electrical GeneralillEleetric XXI Eljobc 3lslant tate College IN TIME OF WAR OR IN TIME OF PEACE.
