Memories Like the fast fading tints of the evening sky, Like the pale white glow of the autumn moon, Like the sparkle of myriads of stars on a frosty night, Like the glistening jewels of ice which deck the supple birches, Like the delicate hues of bee-seducing flowers, Like the perfume-laden breezes from the dewy fields, Like the bass melody of the marshland denizens, Like the dreamy cloud-argosies forever being wafted through an infinite sea of azure, Like the ripple of water when a fluttering leaf has fallen on its surface, Like the plaintive note of the whip-poor-will swelling over dale and lea, Like all of these, the beauty, the sincerety, the peace-bringing charm of the memories of our college days will live with us forever until the cloud of life fades into the sunset of a dying day and the whip-poor-will’s song is stilled. Class of 192.5 President Willis J. Snow Vice-President Helen S. Burdick Secretary Louisa B. Latham Treasurer John J. Call an an Assistant Treasurer Vera I. Swan Honorary Member Harold W. Browning In the fall of ’2.1 our campus was enlivened by a large group of progressive youngsters, green as usual, numbering one hundred and fifty-eight and full of pep, every mother ' s son of them. We proceeded to get into the market for radiators, tickets to the Biscuit City theatre and various and sundry other commodities which every Freshman demands on his advent. Owing to procrastination and the rapid entry of drab and chilly winter we did not have the pleasure of pulling the Sophs thru Underwoods Pond that year. How- ever, we succeeded in trimming the wise boys of ’2.4 in both football and baseball, showing thereby the undeniable versatility and prowess of the then green Frcshics. We broke into the social whirl at a Freshman informal held in Lippitt hall one memorable Friday night. At this affair the banner of 1915 was first unfurled. The boys of ' 14 tried several times to capture the banner but they were up against a perfect combination and masterful team work, with the result that the banner was retained easily by the class of ' 2.5. Having come through the Frosh stage with flying colors and an added zest for the following years the class returned in the fall of ' 2.2.. The incoming Frcshics suc- ceeded after a hard tussle in pulling ' 2.5 through Underwoods Pond, but we retali- ated with compound interest by winning decisively the football game. We also beat the class of ' 2.6 in the Freshman-Sophomore Debate and the baseball game. It was during this year that the class put over a very successful Soph Hop. In the fall of ' 2.3 the class returned very much depleted in numbers but the sur- vivors were strongly imbued with the old R. I. spirit by this time and determined to carry on the good work of the past. During the year we ran the festivities of Junior week including a very credible Prom. The co-eds were defeating all rivals in basket- ball and the outstanding players of the champion team were of the class of ' 2.5. In football, basketball, baseball, and track the class has contributed more than its due share of Varsity material each year. Members are also found in large numbers in Phi Delta and in the Debating Society. At the close of the year the class ran a very successful Commencement Ball. Having come thru the scathing period of the Freshman year, the vigilant, hypercritical period of the Sophomore year and the busy, quiet and earnest plugging of the Junior year we returned in the fall of ' 14 to begin the last lap of our college life. Very different from the verdant group that arrived in ' 11, we set about the business of graduation with an earnest purpose and the usual dignified demeanor. During this year the class showed its versatility to a marked degree. Every society and activity on the campus claimed the leadership of the Seniors. We were a very busy class of Seniors getting the Grist ready for publication and sale. Despite the frenzied finance of this hectic year we succeeded in carrying on our various projects with success. Now that the end of a busy and happy four years ' sojourn on the campus is here we arc about to leave with confidence that the same success that characterized our activities in college will follow us out into the world of industry and achievement. Walter Harold Ahlborg, A X A Providence, R. I. " Olaf” " Wally " Civil Engineering Corporal (i); Engine ering Society, Masonic Club. " Olaf " has attended M. I. T. for part of his education, but he has spent most of his time with us, hence we give him greater credit and esteem him higher for having the good sense in picking the best engineering school of the two. " Wally " keeps both " Lanza " and " Pa Webster” busy thinking up catching engineering problems in vain endeavor to stop him, but to no avail. Our hero was there when it came to practical prob- lems also. During his spare time Wally is kept busy by the AhlborgCon- struction Company, and has proved that he can mix cement with the best of them. He has taken no less than five special trips to Portland, Maine, to get the “inside " on the special process of making Portland Cement. A structural engineer of the future; bon voyage " Wally " . Janet Sophia Allen Fall River, Mass. ’Jan " Applied Science In the year 1913, our sophomore year, there came into our midst, a sweet brown-eyed Miss from Southern College, Virginia. Although she was a shy, quiet Miss whom few really knew, there was one person on the campus who discovered her. She surprised us all by announcing her marriage this year — a charmingly youthful and courageous act. We wish Mrs. Bliss all the joy and happiness in the world. Evariste Albert Arnold Pawtucket, R. I. " Al " " The Kid " Electrical Engineering Sergeant (3); Lieutenant (4); Track (3) (4); Member A. 1. E. E. " Al " is another of Pawtucket ' s famous sons. During the first two years of his career here at Kingston we didn ' t see much of him for he practiced the art of commuting. " The Kid " is a soldier of great ability, having gained the title of “hard-boiled lieutenant " , during his so|ourn at Camp Devens. The Coach ' s " Sedate Senior " studies when he isn ' t correcting work for " Tip " or Prof Bills. He has been interested in all college activities and we hope will have made his R. I. in track by the time you read this. " Al " has devoted his days here mostly in Lippitt studying the mys- teries of the E. E. course and expects to become affiliated with the G. E. when he gets his sheepskin. We have never noticed any special weakness for the fair sex, but rumor has it that he spends his Sunday afternoons at Saunderstown. Be this as it may, we all know his ability as an E. E. and arc sure he will have a bright and prosperous future. Frank Ariel Barnes, Jr. Woonsocket, R. I. " Fab " " Aggib " Agriculture Agf,ie Club (4); Fruit Judging Team (4). " Fab " came from the wilderness of the State four years ago. However, we have great hopes for Frank; we expect to hear his melodious voice an- nouncing the arrival and departure of trains in some largcrailroad station. He would not be a common announcer, for his witticisms would keep the passengers roaring. A bright energetic youth, who never grew up, Frank mav some day graduate from train announcer to Charlie Chaplin ' s shoes and make that celebrity tremble with envv. After all, we must give " Aggie” credit; he can, and docs occasionally, make two blades of grass grow where only one grew before. For all his innocence, Frank has tak- ing ways, so bachelors arc the only people who arc safe with Frank around. Leila Rhena Berry Providence, R. I.

Meet one of our shining lights in the scholastic field. Tho a student of the " A " class " Milt " as we all know is a regular fellow. Having gradu- ated from Classical High in Providence in 1911 " Bid " appeared the fol- lowing September as a frcshic at R. I. State. The first two years the " home tics " being very’ strong " Bid” commuted, but in the Junior year he proved the acquisition of collegiate wisdom by coming down to eat, sleep, and be merry with the boys. " Milt " distinguished himself as a student by making the coveted t K | in his Senior year. He was also active in other college affairs and al- ways ready to help. We are sure his ability and friendliness will soon place him at the top of the ladder. Donald Burch Brown, C C Pawtucket, R. I. " Don " " DB.

As one may |udgc from the preceding list of activities " D. B. " is a rather versatile chap As an athlete, executive, and " soldier " , " Don " has made the grade. As a pitcher in the inter- fraternity baseball games he had no equal, and when " Don " decided he would look well with a Varsity R. 1 , he characteristically sauntered down to the field, and grabbing a javelin proceeded to heave it out of sight. The whistle, grin and matter of fact method of getting things done will surely land " D B " at the top of the ladder in short order. Tho shy and retiring in his Freshman and Sophomore years, " Don " began to grace the ballroom of late, and we understand is quite at home with the fair sex.

The wondering Frcshic who once thought " Evey " in the blue tie of ' 15 serenely building a campfire by placid Thirty Acre was too dignified, too capable, and too calm to have any sport in her make-up, was sadly mis|udging one of our most popular Seniors. She has been active in all branches of athletics, and no " pitnit " would be complete without her. Capable? Yes, " Evey " has successfully captained the Varsity basketball team during her Senior year as well as she has captained every undertak- ing. Dignified? Calm? Yes, both, but dignified with the charming, womanly dignity of the real college woman, and calm in the pleasurable assurance of self-confidence. If you succeed in future years as well as you have in college " Evey " , you will be " a woman before whom the world will bow. " Helen Shaw Burdick, 2 K Kingston, R. I.

That famous old saying that " history repeats itself ' shows up right here on our campus for we have a second Pocahontas and Captain Smith alfair. " Poko " , short for Pocahontas, resembles that Indian maiden not only in appearance but in her love affair, for she has liked none other than Stretch Smith, acaptain in our student army, ever since our Freshman year, and nosv she wears his fraternity pin. This hasn ' t taken all of " Poko ' s” time for she has been one of our busiest athletes. Her training as presi- dents of many societies and vice-president of our class every year, and as manager of the girls ' tennis team will come in very handy when she starts taking care of her big pale face chief. We don ' t know just what " Poko ' s " future plans are, for when asked when she is going to get mar- ried she just laughs and blushes and says maybe pretty soon, and that is all we can get out of her.

The only man who ever seemed to like " bills” is " Les " . However, the " Bills " that he welcomes arc the two two-legged specimens from Connecticut. A terrible triumvirate, to be sure. In the future as we hark back to our college days our fondest recollections will contain a mental image of the chum whom we all admire and respect. A man who is thoughtful, considerate, loyal, and conscientious, always friendly and forever eager to be of assistance to his friends and acquaintances. Became of his unassuming nature " Les” is best known by only a few but those that arc intimately acquainted with him arc emphatic in their praises and esteem his friendship most highly. Quiet, industrious, and sincere is the comrade whose counsel we often seek. There is another vital reason why " Les " Burlingame deserves the praise and admiration of everyone, namely, he established a set of ideals for himself and has dared to live up to them Through trial and sorrow he has kept his heart clean, and has looked up and smiled and lifted to the best of his ability. Truly he is a man. Quiet old " Les " ! Only a few besides the two " Bills” know of that powerful and charming magnet that so often drags you away from King- ston, but we wish you both all the happiness in the world.

" Cal " came to Rhode Island from serviving " Uncle Sam " . We did not see very much of him the first two years for he purposely hid himself from public view, perhaps because he had got into the habit of ducking the " majors " and " whatnots " of previous years. However, in thejunior year his love of logical argument prevailed upon him, and he went out for debating, making TK A. His clear thinking and business ability gave to the class an unrivaled man to handle the subscription department of this Grist. " Cal " declares that eventually he will settle down as a true " son of the soil " devoting his efforts to poultry raising and fruit growing. What- ever line he follows, we feel sure that " Rhodv " will have added reason to be proud of his past and future accomplishments. Roland Henry Chattkrton, B 4 Scituate, R. I.

Long! Lean! Lanky! These alliterative adjectives arc all applicable to " Chatty " , our " big boy " , who strolls from class toclass as if endowed with mythical " Seven League Boots " . But if this ardent Aggie has long lines, don ' t make a mistake and think that he has a long " line " . He hasn ' t. As far as we know, he is as quiet and demure as an elderly King- ston spinster.

The City-by-the-Sea wept salty tears into the salty waters around it, when " Bone " announced the completion of his Odyssey; but Kingston and Rhode Island State received him with open arms, and the reflection of his famous smile and dazzling personality soon drew an ever growing circle of friends about him. " Bone ' s " achievements arc as many and as excellent as the famous " 37 varieties " . He was one of the hardest and scrappiest players that ever scrambled the turf on the local gridiron. Just close your eyes and dream of a May night, when Lippitt Hall was transformed into a veritable spring garden with tiny orbits glimmering over trcllised nooks entwined with ramblers, and you will sec " Bone” the artist, the decorator superb. Engineering claims his working hours, but the arts take up his leisure. From Conrad and Tolstoi, he has gleaned a rare philosophy and power of expression This is the true portrait of " Bone " , a gentleman, a scholar, and a friend of all.

Ruskin once said, " A friend is a person before whom you may think aloud. " Consider for a moment the significance of these words — then apply them to Stella. Her deep understanding of human behavior, her clear logical plane of reason, (which is only acquired through an insati- able thirst for the truths in literature), and her disciplined intellect to which failure lends a charm, have combined to make her a powerful mag- net. Like the sphinx, she is the silent listener but never fails to draw us from those interminable pits into which our groping minds precipitate themselves only to become bewildered.

" Jack " Mechanical Engineering Rope Pull (x); Sergeant (z) (3); Captain (4); Military Balt Committee ( 3 ) ( 4 )- ' Engineering Society (1) (1X3) (4); Assistant Manager of Football (3). Just to picture a real human being, imagine aggressiveness, humour, purposefulness, perseverance, and practicality mixed in pleasing propor- tions and hidden behind this illustrious visage. Practical in the extreme, " Jack " has no time for pet theories that will not work. Many entertain- ments docs " Jack " afford with his practical schemes; decorating and moving picture operating arc right in his line. John takes in all the shows and uses them to good advantage to quicken his interests and to add to his list of " friends " . But action and reaction arc equal and oppo- site, so " Jack " vents his pent up emotions in a battle of wits or some friendly joust. John ' s ability to apply theory to practice will make him a valuable and wealthy man. Then his more studiously inclined class- mates will crawl from their books, and his friends will leave the shows to enviously seek his friendship. Edward Joseph Cooney, P I K Providence, R. I.

Recollections of a languorous night in May, when the college-social danced to the dulcet strains of Mowray Pearl ' s Serenades, would be suf- ficient to preserve " Doc ' s " memory forever in our hearts. To his unfail- ing inspiration and endeavor was due the success of the most extravagant Junior Prom held at Rhode Island. “Doc ' s " motto, " a bigger and better prom,” was exemplified in a never-to-be-forgotten manner Yet do we also remember him for qualities other than artistic genius. " Ted " shone on the football field for two memorable seasons, and his ex- hi bition of gamcncss and aggressiveness was well marked by all who saw him in action. Graced with charming manner, a gift of repartee, and genial disposition, he was a friend to all. " Doe” spent his summers twixt the city, and the sea resorts and the mountain paradises, and in his wanderings he garnered a wealth of knowledge about the wiles of femininity and their conquests. The best wishes of Twenty-five will go with him wherever he en- deavors to climb the stairway of great achievement in the world of practical endeavor.

In the early fall of 1911 the village of Kingston was aroused by the arrival of an ancient " Ark " containing one small, tousled-haired young- ster from the great metropolis. This red headed youth, a graduate of Technical High School assumed the role of a day student and plugged at his studies his entire Freshman year. He first came into prominence as one of the instigators of the Bcd-o-slcd which earned the college by storm in the winter of 1911. In his Junior year " Fcrgic " stepped out of his teens and under the tutorage of his tcrpsichorcan pal soon entered the social whirl of the college. " Red " was originally an engineer and his ability as a mathematician served him in good stead in passing his chem- istry courses.

Four years ago, a fair-haired Swede came to Rhode Island and per- suaded " Proxy " . by his winning smile and pleasing personality, to let him enter college and go to classes when he felt in the mood. Now no one could ever call George moody or even pensive, for he is continually on the go, or on a committee which is the same thing, for he makes things hum them. His exuberance of enthusiasm and his ability to get people to work with him, as evidenced by his work in cheer-leading and mass- meeting activities, promise him a roseate future in business. George is also of a poetical mind and often, for want of something better to do, sits down and writes out a cheer that will add many points to our ath- letic scores.

He is by no means at the bottom of his class, but has gumption and gray matter enough to lead, on his own initiative, the rest ot us a merry chase. He is an intelligent, indul- gent, and attentive listener, but when he gets a chance to put a word in edgewise, he opens his mouth with a purpose and often leaves the group in convulsive laughter. Still water runs deep, but Art. ' ' likes the running brook for a change where he drops another ’line " to lure the speckled trout into his basket. A fortunate fellow is Arthur Ganz, for he has traveled to foreign lands, hence many a talc can he unfold of radio fan and sailor bold, but when he finishes his evening task, he turns to the Saturday Post at last.

Gaze upon the individual who gave Baden Powell the original idea pertaining to Boy Scouts. During his sojourn in college he has spon- sored many " leagues” wherein some of the less fortunate have been ex- posed to his inventive genius. We predict a great future in the banking held for him, because of that elaborate two pocket system of finance which he has worked out all by himself. His activities, however, have not been wholly confined to higher finance because at any time he may be seen on the corner at the Biltmore giving the fair sex a treat His social abilities arc by no means neglected because of his constant ming- ling with the debutantes at the Arcadia.

His innate characteristics fit him admir- ably for the part of a modern " Dead-Eye Dick " . The ability to pierce a target with infallible accuracy is wasted on this lad, unless he wishes to shoot some of the feline Romeos and Juliets from whose throats noc- turnally emanate weird and plaintive songs of love - and perhaps con- quest. But all the world loves a lover, and we love our " Pete " . If we hear him cry aloud in the night, " K " " K " " K " , we know he is safe from the ravages of the bc-shcctcd clan.

" Johnnie ' s " outstanding characteristic is a keen eye with a tendency to aim well and always hit the mark. In his Sophomore year " Eke " de- cided to step out and as the above list shows he distinguished himself in class athletics. This year he made the Varsity rifle team, where his ability counted for much in the teams creditable record. " Johnnie " is a star basketball center, and the same keen eve proved useful in netting the ball. Despite the athletic tendency this youth is also a star in the art of " Terpsichore”. " Eke " always liked to oblige the boys even when dancing at Lippitt. We have no doubt that his marksmanship will be continued in the world of business and we expect " Johnnie " will have equal ability in hitting the bullscyc of success.

We thought that wc had lost “Kachic " when he disappeared in the dust on his way west, but he was only going to Camp Perry to improve his marksmanship. He was always pretty clever with a gun, but like all other ambitious people he was anxious to progress even further toward perfection and a high score So it was with the greatest of pleasure that wc saw his old Ford (for a modern soldier docs not use a " nag”) roll lazily down our busy thoroughfares. Our " Kachic " was back, and ready for work. But he did not believe in all work and no play. Oh no! Although wc always thought of him as a serious minded fellow, he sure did like to " strut his stuff " and many a polished floor has been the stamp- ing ground for " Kachic ' s " syncopating peddle extremities. Wc hope. Old man, that when you get into life ' s keen competition, that you will come through with a high score and hit the bulls-cye of success. Joseph Mark Lamb, B Revere, Mass.

In the fall of ' li this adventurous young man, determined to become famous as an E. E., embarked from his far off native home. It was early morning when he left Revere, and it is said that the mermaids from the beach wept bitterly as he boarded the " Narrcr Gage " and sped away toward R. I. S. C. Now, " Joe, " alias Kid Knockout, is highly skilled in the manly art of boxing, for few of his opponents have recovered from his blows even after the count of twenty-three. During the past winter he has had a class of understudies whom he has trained to dodge the dif- ferent blows as well at P. T. " Joe " has not fully decided whether to take a job in China or Revere. Both arc foreign lands, but whichever it is wc wish him success. Louisa Briggs Latham, £ K Smithlicld, R. I. “Lbbza " Home Economics Clast Basketball (i) (0 0 ) (4); Publicity Chairman Y IV. C U.

As a friend to whom many have come for kindly advice, help, and counsel, " Lecza " has proved her worth. She has served faithfully on the class basketball teams, and realized one of her dreams when she played in the Connecticut game. In studies " Lccza " has not forgotten why she came to college and has made an enviable record, her name appearing on the honor roll. Judging by her ability in the Home Economic line, and her winning per- sonality in teaching, wc all know that " Lccza " will ring true to Alma Mater in all she may do.

Here is another " Bill " from Connecticut. Rhode Island has been for- tunate during the past four years, for all that time she has held captive the brains of her sister-state. Caesar was ambitious, so is " Bill”; Caesar was at times light-hearted, so is " Bill " , soon " Bill " will besecking other states to conquer — lucky states! In class, " Bill " is the sun among stars; in college activities, he is the same luminous body — shining East, but looking " West” Some day, we expect to hear of a new electric syn- dicate and to feel " Bill ' s " competitors tremble. " Freddie " is not fickle, he likes variety, so he specializes in " White Caps " in the spring, life savers and mermaids in the summer, and ovcr-turcs in the fall. He is best in the capacity of life saver, however, when he opens the doors of East. No, there is no doubt of " Bill ' s " diversities he can push a pen or handle lumber with equal effectiveness.

After three years of concen- trating on the construction of the atom and trying to devise new methods of quantitative analysis which would work, Bill has decided that a knowledge of Chemistry is not all that is to be obtained at college. This strange awakening is rumored to be the indirect effect of his nocturnal pedcstrianisms between Harvard and Camp Dcvcns. The final year at Rhode Island has proved an exceedingly busy one for " Professor Bill”. Besides being heavily burdened with scholastic and managerial responsi- bilities he has generously given of his time to the class of ' 2.8 in order that they too might become endowed with a knowledge of chemistry. Bill ' s self-sacrificing personality and business ability predict rapid success for him. Albert Edward Makin, P I K " Al " " Jicky " Providence, R. I.

" Al ' s " memory will be perpetuated at Rhode Island as one of the most brilliant athletic stars ever to represent Alma Mater For four long years his work on gridiron and diamond has been one of the mainstays of " Rhodv ' s " elevens and nines. But the class of Twenty-five will also long remember the jovial classmate and loyal companion whose pleasant greetings were scattered promiscuously over the Campus. This smiling lad wended his way to Rhode Island from the somewhat doubtful hamlet of Walpole, where the bereaved natives still mourn his loss. His four years here represent the aggregate of days of golden sun- shine and pleasant memories, but it was not until his last year that he achieved immortal fame as the melodious tenor of the Imperial Waiters Quartette. " Al ' s " hobbies apart from athletics, have been cosmopolitan debating and the conquest of the deadlier sex. No matter where " Al” may roam, there is no doubt that his heart will ever be with the “Hill " where he served so long and faithfully. Dorothy Mildred Markham, £ K Providence, R. I.

Her sincerctv and depth of character arc quali- ties appreciated by all her friends. Is the presence of culture at Rhode Island questioned? Then look at " Dot " , if you must sec to believe. Her knowledge is varied for in addition to her home economics training, she also has a business education. Her susceptibility to beauty is ex- emplified in her love of poetry. Do not think " Dot” is a gloom — far from it! Her subtle humour often leaves in complexity those " who can- not figure her out”. Suffice it to say that " Dot ' s " smile reflects her dis- position. Can anyone with such a character fail to succeed? Arthur Baxter Miller, C C Woonsocket, R. I. " Art " " Cat " " Sheik " " Baxter " Applied Science " Mc-ow, me-ow, mc-ow! " Ladies and gentlemen, meet " Cat " alias " Art " alias " Baxter " alias " Sheik " . The boy with the inimitable cat- call, the indescribable Ford, the incredible swimming record, the in- vulnerable stubbornness, and the inveterate propensity for female com- panionship. " Art ' s " motto is " Chcrchez la femme " . He certainly is doing his darndcst to find her, but I wonder — ? " If at first you don ' t succeed, try, try again. " " Cat " is a good scout, with a pleasing per- sonality and a very friendly disposition He is extremely versatile in his more serious pastimes as well as in his " affaires ducocur " , being a talent- ed musician, a clever artist, and a most intriguing story teller. During the summer while at Warwick he teaches the mermaids how to swim and so many Nereids docs he sport with that we can truly consider him a modern Neptune. " Art " has been an ideal chum to associate with these past four years and now that we arc about to part at the cross-roads we sincerely hope that he and his " flivver " will roll on into the heart of the world of achievement as surely as he rolled into the hearts of his classmates when he first came here to study.

" Musty " — the name defined is " pep " personified; yet, you say she is such a dignified Senior. The degree of seriousness became more intense from Freshman to Senior year. " Our Edith " has become dignified, but " Musty ' s " dancing feet refuse to do so. As an actrcs.s and property manager, Edith has done her bit for Phi Delta. Her ability to uphold " that Newport walk " has made the town famous.

A genial smile and a cordial welcome arc his standards. He has served faithfully as one of Keaney ' s dogs and is bound to make good. The Fall River Soccer Club is " Jicky ' s " hobby, and we can often hear — " I ' ll give two to one on Sunday ' s game . " We can see a bright future for this young wizard as a soccer coach, an encouragcr of " leagues " a professor in religion, a partner with " Abie " in designing and machining engines, or as an experienced waiter, for " Al " has served many a scoff hound. Warren Dawley Nichols Slocum, R. I. " Nick " " Nicky " Agriculture Sergeant (3); Lieutenant (4); Aggie Club (1) (4). " Nick " is the man who put MeSparren Hill on the map of Rhode Island. His great big welcome smile is always waiting to break out. Is it the milking of a dozen cows before breakfast and the ride from Me- Sparren Hill to Kingston every morning that gives Nick his jolly dis- position? It can ' t be that, because when he left the farm and went to Camp Devens in 19Z4, " Nick " was " Nick " , and his contagious conviviality made him one of the most popular fellows in the camp. Heretofore, running his farm has prevented him from taking an active part in athletics, but at the present time he is making a sincere effort to earn a place on the baseball team, and no doubt by the time this is in print he will be a member of the Varsity nine. His ability and personality together with the good wishes from all who know him assure " Nick” of the greatest of success in the years to come. Morris Norman, B N E Woonsocket, R. I.

He is a faithful student and a conscientious worker, being a jack-of-all trades and a master of many. Always cheer- ful, he sees only the bright side of life. His only fault is his shyness or modesty, his class hardly knowing of his presence until he blew the am- meter in E. E. laboratory.

Across the campus has had little attraction for him, but he admits that he ventured there once. He claims that a certain Massachusetts town is quite a place for fishing, etc. It must be when he comes back from there so happy. The lucky business man who gets him, can rightfully claim that he has the original perpetual motion machine. Adonis Patterson, A 2 E Palmyra, Mich.

During his stay he has participated in many college activities, has been one of the mainstays on the football and baseball teams, and has been socially active as well. The " Doctor " expects to further his education at Har- vard where he ' s heard Mathematics is not taught. His chief aim has been to graduate from college and he certainly is to be congratulated after several attempts. We shall expect to find " Pat " at Notre Dame or Harvard within a few vears coaching the eleven, for after being under Frank Keanev ' s wing for two years he has developed into an efficient coach and referee and will doubtless some day be as great a coach as his Joseph Pinto, 0 X Newport, R.

It was just three years ago that Rhode Island State received an immi- grant from Syracuse. But this immigrant was unlike others of his class, because he took to the " aggies " instead of the machines. Darwin had nothing on him when it came to theories; but the place where he went one better was in that constant companion — his strong old pipe. It can easily be seen that agriculture in Rhode Island will improve during the next few years as " Doc " docs his stuff. Erland Lambert Sandberg, C C Scekonk, Mass.

It proved hard on his bridge and worse on his system. " Sandy " has a very genial personality. He can even get along with " Pete " ! Unlike most fellows " Sandy " is a film star.

But to those who arc not intimately acquainted with our big, good-natured friend let us say that a more popular, sincere, and unassuming comrade cannot be found. He is the sort of fellow whom everyone likes to see listed among their friends, and because of his remarkable disposition and personality he has a standing army of admirers and pals. Because of " Walt ' s” ath- letic prowess we are sure that he is capable of defending himself from physical harm but certain occurences indicate that he needs a wee bit of paternal advice about other matters.

To his Alma Mater he gave every ounce of strength, and courage that he might help her vanquish her foes on the gridiron. His classmates can look to Frank for an example of a tried and true leader, for in his Sophomore year as our President, he guided the destinies of our class through an eventful and prosperous year, crowned by the most rcsplcndant Sophomore Hop the college has ever known. In class activities, his versatility is well show n, for in all of our numerous successes is seen Frank ' s guiding hand. To peruse these pages will show the touch of his master hand, for as Business Manager he has made this book an assured success. For his friends he has an ever ready hand, and reassuring smile. His strength of character, alertness, and finesse in handling a situation have won for Frank a warm place in the hearts of everyone.

Despite the disadvantages of years spent in the atmos- sphcrc of rusticity, he shook the hayseed from the grey corduroys, and was transmigrated to the enervating life of an Electrical Engineer on the Metropolitan Hill. If his home borough has done nothing else it surely bred a master radio expert, who threatens to eclipse the star of Marconi, his superhets arc known throughout the South County. During his sojourn on the Hill, " Sid " has shown the marks of a bril- liant scholar, and while the thorny path with " Lanza " was beset with difficulties enough to discourage even " Christian”, this smiling youth weathered every storm, and came down the fairway with colors gallantly streaming.

Though not a Varsity man, " jack " took part in all the class tussles and was a staunch supporter of both class and college. We expect " Jack " to be a strong booster of American Agriculture and through his ability and good nature to win a high place in worldly affairs. Louis Edward Tilley, Jr., B4 , TKA, A Newport, R. I.

Dyer Secretary Mark R. Gifford Treasurer John E. Harvey Assistant Treasurer Ruth Fearney Honorary Member Frank W. Keaney During the Fall of 11 a record-breaking number of Freshmen found their way to the campus of Rhode Island State College from many places of culture and interest. After much confusion in getting organized, with a spirit of unity they settled down, and all pulled together in order that their class might help to promote the ever ad- vancing spirit of Rhode Island. With this object in view the class of 1916 worked for the good of the college. Many have received letters for the honor they have gained for their college and them- selves on the football field. Those that were unable to play football entered the annual rope-pulling classic; and here ' 16 humbled ' 15 by giving them a touch of Neptune ' s cup of woe. With such a fine start the spirit of the class kept on advancing and captured a majority of the places on the Varsity basketball team. With her extra material, she won over ’2.5 in the inter-class contest. In the spring the baseball and track teams were strengthened by her spirited members. Then they came back in the Fall with that ever dominating Sophomore spirit, and as kings of the campus they humbled the Freshmen in the rope pull and the basketball games. Then, too, the class backed up the social life of the campus to the limit. The Soph Hop and the Junior Prom were the best on record. It is not necessary to repeat that ’2.6 did this-and-that in the different activities because the records show that they gave their all for Alma Mater through three years of service and they are preparing to end their campus life by making the fourth year the best of all. Gentle reader, if there is one lesson to learn from our history, it is that an organiza- tion, such as the class of 1916, must keep on advancing in actions as well as thoughts in order that the spirit of our Alma Mater might be enlarged and make itself felt in the far corners of the universe.

Muriel Arnold Honorary Member Capt. Claude G. Hammond It was a beautiful day in the fall of ' 2.3. The Shore Line Express rolled into Kingston and when the coaches had been brought to rest many excited youths clam- bered out. — Who were they? — They were the new college students — the Class of 1917 to be. At a glance one could see that this was a lively group, and the upper classmen at the station must have murmured, " They act as if they were going to make things snappy!” — Truer words were never spoken, for since that very day ' 2.7 has occupied a memorable spot in the lime light of R. I. S. C. activities. It was after the routine of registration had subsided that the spirit of ' 17 made itself evident. Some seventy odd men reported for football. Out of these was built Rhody’s first real Freshman team. What a team that was! Team after team fell before their power. To carry a successful season to a close ' 2.7 gave the Sophs a good trounc- ing in the Class League. Having introduced themselves thusly they carried the good work into the baskbetball season. Candidates for this sport numbered thirty- five. The resulting speedy quintet forged through a season of sixteen games losing only two. The Soph-Frosh game this year was hotly contested both on the court and on the side lines. The unlucky yearlings finally succumbed to a two point lead. With spring came the Freshics only real weakness. Their baseball team was unexperienced and lacked a pitcher. Three months elapsed. Registration took place. Those of ' 17 that had with- stood the ordeal of the Freshman stage were now Sophs. Ten of these second year men were promptly found on the football team or among the seconds. Having gained considerable knowledge of the art of playing football they quite easily defeated the Freshics in the final game of the season. During the winter months members of the class were busy in other branches of college life. A Soph was leading the list of Honor Students. Many members were trying to make the Beacon a greater success. Some were engaged in preparation for one of Phi Delta’s much enjoyed productions. A few are now zealously preparing for the annual Sophomore-Freshman Debate, which they arc confident of winning. Who will forget the good time that they had at the Hop? The Co-eds put forth scrappy teams both in basketball and hockey. The boys of ’2.7 showed up well in basketball. There were six of them on the Varsity team and among the subs. Rhody has just closed one of the most successful seasons in its basketball history, and much credit is due these men. The fast Frosh of ' 2.8 however, were able to take the inter- class game away from them after a speedy and dogged resistance. Baseball is here again and doubtless many of the candidates will be Sophs. We know they will do their best. The class of ' 2.7 has been here only a short while and have produced leaders and representatives for all branches of college life. They have already accomplished many things — many more and greater things can safely be predicted for them before June, 19x7. May they leave a history ' which will far surpass any conceivable pre- dictions.

Faunce Vice-President Margaret McCrae Secretary Alfred T. Kratzert Treasurer William Gannon Assistant Treasurer Elizabeth Kendall Honorary Member Charles L. Sweeting Last but not least we will hear from our no less conspicuous Freshmen. Ushered in as they were with a Freshman informal and an intelligence test they became known both socially and intellectually. In the course of a few months the class of 1918, one hundred and forty-three in number, not only became accustomed to tipping and wearing their caps, refraining from " shieking” and spending their youthful evenings as members of Delta Tau Lambda, but also became well represented in almost ever) ' line of their college activities. Considering the ladies first, we notice twenty Freshman girls with spirit galore in class basketball. Lead by a highly spirited captain, who later was a strong point on the Varsity co-ed team, twice victorious over their Connecticut rivals by a large- margin, this team was defeated only by the Varsity composed Senior Team. The co-eds of ’2.8 also showed up well in class hockey. Not only in athletics have the fair ones been busy attaining prominence but also in the dramatic society, on the Beacon, and in attaining scholastic recognition. Turning now to the boys, we see them " starting big " by unceremoniously coaxing the Sophs into the " slough of despond " and winning the rope pull decisively. Football material was not as aspiring as it might have been wished for, but the boys of ’l8 worked hard and the end of the season found them with an even break. Out of five games they had won two, lost two and held one to a scoreless tie. In the Soph-Frosh game the husky Frcshies offered stiff opposition, but the final whistle found them at the small end of the score. During the basketball season the Frcshies made a much better record. Their team was spirited, fast and not nearly as green as their jerseys. Eight out of the twelve frays were turned into victories. The greatest of these victories was over the Connecticut Frosh at Kingston. The two teams being very nearly matched, Rhode Island spirit was the deciding feature. In a very exciting game a few days later the Freshics somewhat removed the sting of defeat offered them by their rival class in football by overpowering ’2.7 on the basketball court. As many as nine Freshies were recruited to the ranks of the Beacon. One of these has recently been advanced to Campus Editor. Phi Delta has claimed several Frosh, giving one of them an important role in the yearly production of Junior week. Not to be outdone by the fair sex twelve youths made their appearance on the Honor Roll. The R. O. T. C. Rifle Team has had at least one Freshman on practically every match shot this year. Those of ’2.8 vocally or musically inclined have rendered their services to the Glee Club, the R. O. T. C. Band, and the College Orchestra. It is quite reasonable to assume that the class of 1918 will be well represented this spring in baseball and track. Everything considered it seems that the class of ' 18 has exceptional opportuni- ties to get a strong foothold on the life of Rhode Island and make a history hitherto unequalled.

Braley The Season of 19 2.4- 19 2. 5 At the outset of the football season, the Varsity was greatly handicapped by lack of material. Commencement cut a wide swath in the ranks of the gridiron cohorts and it was an impossible task the Coach faced in September. Coupled with the shortage of seasoned timber was a schedule capable of causing worry to the best of clubs. Coach Keaney is to be congratulated for doing as well as he did despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Some excellent men stepped up from the ranks of the previous season ' s Freshman club and nobly filled some of the vacated posts. Among these were Warde, Dcschanz, Barber, Donald, and Armstrong. The season opened wtih the University of Maine on the home field. Rhode Island was out of condition, and was greatly outweighed in the bargain. The team battled hard, but the " Down- Easters " emerged from the fray a 57-0 victor. LIONEL m. WAR., E , The next tussle : was with the very strong aggregation from Capt.-EUet of Football thc University of New Hampshire. In the two weeks interim the 1925-1926 team had been whipped into shape and waged a worthy scrap against these formidable opponents. New Hampshire took the ball and a 16-7 win home, but all were favorably impressed with the brand of ball ‘‘Rhody” staged. In the last few minutes of play Bosworth broke loose and tore 45 yards for R. I. ' s score. " Rhody” next tackled Lowell Institute on the latter’s field and tied onto the short end of a 6-0 score in a very poorly played game. The breaks were all in Lowell’s favor but there was no excuse why the pigskin wasn ' t carted home. The Kingstonians strolled to New York the following week, and stacked up against the strong C. C. N. Y. eleven. The Violet had the best team of recent years and after a stubborn contest came out ahead 13-0. The generalship of Plaut was the deciding factor in their victory. The work of Rhode Island ' s game little half-back, Makin, was the feature of the game. Time after time he speared and ran back spiraling punts with the opposition waiting to crash him. In the last game on the home field W. P. I. was taken into camp 14-9 in a game replete with brilliant action and versatile field running. The greatest find of the season was made in this tussle when Makin took charge of the game and ran the club to its arduous victory. His beautiful forward from the forty-yard line to Hickey on the second was unsurpassed in Rhode Island football history. Bates took the Varsity ' s measure in a well-played game at Lewiston, 13-6. The going was even thruout but a long forward in the closing minutes of the fray was snatched by a fleet Maine back and turned the tied score to victory. The season ended with the team lined up against their ancient rivals, Connecti- cut, on the latter ' s home grounds. The " Nutmcggers " had the fastest moleskin- unit seen there in some years and came out of the contest with an unblemished record. Rhode Island was outweighed but not outfought. The final count, 2.2.-0, gives no indication of the heroic way our forward line met the savage onslaughts and surges of the orangc-jcrscyed horde. Again and again the Rhode Island supporters thundered their approval as the lighter Kingston warriors smeared play after play. The team lined up with Meade at center, Northup and Smith guards, Capt. Gifford and Barber tackles, Deschanz and Ward ends, Jensen and Hickey halfbacks, Bosworth full, and Makin quarter. The line was ablv supported by Shields, Shea, Taylor, Ralston, Christensen, and Armstrong. The backfield had a glaxy of sterling subs among whom were Gratton, Donald, Lamont, and Pinto. At the close of the season Lionel Warde was elected Captain for the coming year. Considering the calibre of the opposing teams and the dearth of early season material the team deserves great credit for the never lagging spirit of fight and determination which they carried into every fray.

Basketball The recent basketball season ended with the club hanging up one of the most scintillating records a Rhode Island team has ever left behind. The official count discloses eleven victories and five defeats. A wealth of stellar material was available from the outset. Captain Pinto was in rare fettle for the opening whistle, and with him were Hill, Jensen, Asher, Rab- nowitz, Haslem, Bosworth, Hayden, and Negus. The return of Bralcy in February further strengthened the club, and completed a glimmering constellation of Rhode Island stars. It would be a difficult task to give great credit to any one individual; for the team from the outset was actuated with the spirit of team play. The local court saw some great basketball, and that this was appreciated was evidenced by the animated cheering of the Kingston benches during the entire season. The few defeats suffered were generally the result of the club not functioning with their usual machine- like precision. The game with Yale was lost thru unfamiliarity with their peculiar personal style of play. Against Connecticut and Boston University the Kingston five were bucking, smooth-working and experienced combines. Each of these teams took two games apiece, but the spirit with which Rhode Island fought did much to condone for the defeats. Hill, " Rhody ' s " diminutive forward, played the best game of his career, and at the conclusion of the season was elected to Captain the team for the coming year. Jensen and Pinto constituted a tower of defence in the backcourt, breaking up the opponent ' s play innumerable times. Braley and Haslam divided the centre honors, while Asher and Rabnovitz contributed flashes of the style of game they play, which has made both popular with the spectators. Hill, the team ' s scoring ace, was high man for the year with Haslam trailing slightly. New Bedford Tech R. I. 59 Northeastern 4 Springfield 32. Boston University 34 Tufts Lowell Institute . 42.

The Varsity did a little better than split even, turning in five wins out of nine starts. The club got off to a late start due to the inclement, frigid weather. Not until the end of May were the elements suitable for a proper exhibition of the national pastime. A galaxy of polished material answered the first silent beck of the willow, all of whom were well versed in the lore of the sport. Captain " Gob’’ Edwards, Rhode Island’s mastcr-mounds- man, alternated on the pitching platform with Lamont. Wright tagged onto the initial sack; Hudson and Makin divided second; " Tom” Kirby stirred the dust at short; " Lefty” Smith annexed the keystone sack, and McKenzie took posture behind the plate, completing an infield comparable with Rhode Island ' s best. The outer-garden was well policed with " Red " Smith in the south leslib t. smith corner, Pinto in mid, and either Lamont or Edwards in right. ca p t.-EMojjB utbati f anscr Ny Cj an d " Stretch " Smith were strong utility supporters. The Season opened officially at Middleton on April nth with Wesleyan. Both teams " pelted " the sphere lustily, Hudson garnering a brace of triples, but Rhode Island errors gave the home club a 12.-6 victory. Lowell Tech was vanquished in the first game on the home pasture 13-12. in a poorly played exhibition. The day was raw and bitter and not conducive to good ball. Heavy hitting featured the contest, Wright walloping two three-baggers. A week later Brooklyn Poly, succumbed to the wiles of Edwards ' twirling, and were chased back to the tenements with a 14-5 defeat. The locals’ heavy hitting sewed up the batfest early. The nine went to Worcester and took on the baseball champions in the next engagement. Holy Cross came out on the long end of a 9-1 score. Their terrific swats, coupled with our outfield errors, never placed the issue in doubt. Kirby, Makin, Wright and Smith covered the infield in rare and masterful style; Hudson connected with the pill for one of the longest three-ply crashes seen at Fitton Field. Maine turned the trick while visiting, and lambasted enough offerings to take a 7-3 win home. The Backwoodsmen had a neat looking aggregation, and played smoother ball. Northeastern suffered two defeats at the hands of the Varsity, 16-6 at Boston and 14 8 at Kingston. Both contests were brimful of virulent socking, but were marred by errors. Worcester Tech hung a 6-3 defeat on the Kingstonians record. The loose field play of the Rhode Islander Club was again the deciding factor. The season ended with two contests with Connecticut; Rhode Island romped off with the premier, but dropped the second in the closing innings when the defence crumpled on the opposition ' s field. The first tussle was featured by the all around brilliant play of Rhode Island, especially their baserunning; the team ran wild and pilfered ten sacks to the " Nutmcgger ' s” one. At Storrs the party was seemingly on ice, but a collapse in the seventh chucker greased the skids of defeat. Hudson put the finishing touch to a prolific season by clouting the longest homer seen on the Gardner Dow field. Hudson wielded a virulent sapling thruout the season and wrought havoc with opposing pitchers. Edwards hurled inspiring ball and was instrumental in nipping many a rally, being especially sturdy in the pinches. Kirby flashed on the bases and while covering short made good some astounding tries. Makin developed into a brilliant second sackman and whaled some mean clouts skywards. “Lefty” Smith let little go by at the hot-corner, and played so impressively all around that he was elected captain for “Twenty-five.” The hay-mowers chased the elusive pill all over the alfalfa and kept the enemies ' bingles to the lowest possible minimum. Pinto showed more than usual talent both pulling them down in the heavy grass and sending them out there with the stick. SUMMARY R. . Opp. Wesleyan 6 . . . 12. Lowell Tech . 13 . . . 12.

Never in the history of Rhode Island was there such a successful and victorious track season as the recent one. All three meets were with formidable foes, and real talent was necessary to mark the counters on the right side of the ledger. The notable record achieved was due to the fact that a classic collection of turf diggers was assembled beneath the folds of the Blue and White standard. Tower, Hudson, and Strong bore the brunt of the Rhode Island attack. These three, assisted by excellent support, made up an unbeatable assemblage. The Delaware meet was a treat to all devotees of the spiked shoe art. Not until the very last event was run off, was victory assured. Tower took three " first” in the 100, the 2.2.0, and the 440. Strong left the opposition fighting for second place when he cleaned up the 880, the mile, and the z mile. Hudson took both hurdles; G. Haslam soared highest with the pole; W. B. Gifford placed second in the shotput. Turner in the javelin and North in the z mile run. Tufts came down next and was swamped. Tower repeated his previous per- formance, and romped off with the 100, zzo, and 440. Strong took the mile and z mile and finished third in the 880. Hall jumped to victory in the high and broad events. Gratton won the zzo low hurdles and collected second in the century dash. Hudson nabbed the honors in the no high hurdles; Lawton spun the discus to vic- tory; Turner turned in the best javelin heave; W. B. Gifford took second in the shot and tied for second in the high jump, Grant got a second in the 880, and third a in the high hurdles. The season ended with the Connecticut meet. All events were bitterly fought and the final issue was long in doubt. Tower was first in the 110 and second in the 100. Strong ran Jacoby, the visitor ' s champion ace, into the dust in the 2. mile event, but saw the latter ' s spikes when he came in second in the mile. Hall took the broad jump, Lawton the discus; Brown the )avelin, and Perry tied for first in the hammer. G. Haslam hung up a new record for this meet with the pole when he cleared xo feet, 6 inches. It would be impossible in a review of this limited size to give to all the credit that is their due. Strong was elected captain for the 1915 season. At the time this is going to press we feel sure that he will lead his team to victories the replicae of those of the past season. 1915 SCHEDULE Connecticut vs. Rhode Island, May 2., 1915 Boston University vs. Rhode Island, May 12., 1915 VARSITY TRACK TEAM. 1924-1925 BOSWORTH.

HASLAM Cross Country The Kingston Hill-and-Dalers during the present year added more leaves to the crown of laurel that has surmounted the brow of Rhode Island in this sport. For five long years " Rhody” has been supreme in all dual meets. A powerful combination headed by the valiant Captain North and the sturdy Strong, showed their spikes decisively to the best that Brown, Boston University, and Worcester Tech could gather. The jaunt with Worcester Tech, was the most bitterly contested meet of the three. The Engineers ran on a course comparable with our own for endurance test- ing qualities. Strong placed first after a gruelling and determined battle and Rhode Island won 11-38. In the race with Boston University the boys from Beantown were hopelessly outclassed. The local marathoners took all five first places, Strong as usual crossing the line in the lead. Brown met their fourth consecutive defeat on the local course in the finale of the season. The followers of the Bear tried hard but the strength of the Kingstonians was too great to give them more than an outside chance. In the New England Intercollegiates Rhode Island met some of the greatest hill climbing outfits in the country. The team was not up to their usual high stand- ard of excellence due to a long lay off but at that they had no difficulty in finishing tenth. All the credit in the world is due ‘ ' Bob” Strong: his unfailing courage, pheno- menal speed, and mighty determination has marked him as the greatest distance runner ever to wear the colors of Rhode Island. In every race during the past year he finished first, and a voluminous burst of cheer was wont to greet his racing figure as he sped down the last hill past the quarry to the finishing mark. " Charlie” North for four long years has sturdily plodded along the ruts and paths, and in this time few have succeeded in leaving him in the rear. He ably cap- tained his team in a brilliant year. Those two flashy " knob-mounters " were ably supported by a worthy club in which were Wilbourn, Grant, Mulcahy, Cruickshank, and Harrington. At the end of the season Wilbourn was elected to lead the team for the next session. Cross country has long enjoyed a popular vogue at Rhode Island and it is with great confidence that we look into the future and feel that the unconquerable teams of the past will be replaced with similar unbeatable squads for years to come. 1914 SCHEDULE AND RESULTS Boston University 45 Rhode Island 15 Brown University 39 Rhode Island 2.1 Worcester Polytechnic Institute 38 Rhode Island vl 1 92.5 SCHEDULE Massachusetts Agricultural College, at Kingston, October 9 Brown University at Providence, October 2.3 Worcester Polytechnic Institute At Worcester, October 31 CROSS COUNTRY TEAM, 1924-1925 CRUICKSHANK.

WILBOURN Captain Croat Country 1925-1926 The Rifle Team 1 92.3 14 The season of 1913-2.4 was the most successful season the rifle team has ever had and was the hardest. The matches started before the Christmas holidays and lasted until after the Easter vacation. The team had a very poor start as there were only six of the previous year’s men eligible to shoot, which meant that half of the team would have to be men that had not had training before, but a large group of Freshmen turned out and due to much hard work upon the part of Capt. Church and Sergt. Prime a team was turned out which was as good as any in the country. A total of thirty-three matches were shot, against the best teams in the country, out of which Rhode Island won thirty. This was an excellent showing, for the range is very poor as it is in the basement of East Hall where there is always noise and where the steam pipes, which enter into the building, make it almost impossible to shoot at times. Yet some of the strongest teams in the country went down before the rifles of ‘‘Little Rhodv, " among them were Texas, Maine, V. P. I., Penn State, Oklahoma, and the Connecticut Aggies. Our total score was 97,361 out of a possible 106,000, while our opponents made only 76,107. The men that made the team were N. Grant, C. Kachidoorian, E. Sandberg, G. Glines, E. Johnson, H. Radcliffe, H. McAuslan, O. Harrington, H. Leigh, and W. Smith. At a business meeting after the close of the season Carnig Kachidoorian, ’2.5, was elected Captain of the team and Herbert Radcliffe, ’2.6, manager, with George Glines, ’17, as assistant manager. 192.4-15 The call for the rifle team was very successfully answered this fall, for all but Geo. Glines of last year ' s team were out for the team. There were also several prom- ising Freshmen out, which made the prospects seem very bright. Due to a change in the conditions under which the matches arc shot, the team had a much harder season to face than it had the year before, but bv hard work upon the part of Capt. Church and Sergt. Friel a team was developed which very successfully met the matches with teams which have much better ranges and a much greater number of men to pick from. At mid-year Capt. Kachidoorian was lost to the team and G. Glines returned. The team scored fourth in the Corps Area match which entitled it to shoot in the International Matches which were held in April. Also for the first time in the historv of the rifle team it left its own range and sought honors elsewhere. A shouldcr- to-shouldcr match was held with the Connecticut Aggies at Storrs, in which Rhode Island very decisively defeated her rival. This led to a possibility of a return match upon the out-door range with the Army rifle, but when this went to press the match had not been shot. There was also a possibility of the team going to Annapolis to shoot in the matches there. The team this year was composed of N. B. Grant, E. K. Johnson, E. Sandberg, H. E. Radcliffe, G. H. Glines, O. Harrington, and A. H. Leigh, all of whom made the team the year before. Due to the filibuster in the Senate, funds for building a new range were with- held, but it is hoped that before the next year ' s season starts a new range with better facilities will have been built, which, with the seasoned men and with new rifles, will tend to a better season than the one which has just passed. Co-ed Athletics, 19x4-1915 Athletics play an important part in co-ed activities and an active interest is shown by the participants in the various sports. As it is only possible to have one intercollegiate sport— basketball — interclass contests are held in hockey, basket- ball, track, baseball and tennis. Basketball season brought out many players. From those the class teams were chosen. They were evenly matched, making the games close in score. The class of 1915 w’on the series, being the first to have their numerals on the new cup pre- sented by the Women ' s Athletic Association. When Varsity practise began many of the players continued to come out. It was their faithful and untiring practice that helped to make possible the successful season for the Varsity. This year inter-sorority games were played for the first time. The teams were so well matched that the scores were very close — Chi Omega being the winner. Archery is being introduced this spring and is proving to be very popular. No doubt by the end of the year expert marksmen will be developed. Coed Varsity Basketball, 1914-1915 This year ' s team, managed by Louise Vaughn and captained by Evelyn Bur- dick, added another season of victories to Rhode Island ' s record. With four letter girls of last year’s lineup — H. Burdick, R. Duggan, E. Burdick, K. Clark — and with the addition of Mildred Negus and Virginia Broome, a fast team was developed. The short, snappy pass work and accurate shooting marked the team as the fastest the co-eds have ever had. The schedule was limited to only two games, both of these with Connecticut. The first game, February 18th, with Connecticut at Storrs, showed that the team was in splendid condition and through the excellent team work a score of 54-12. was run up. The second game with Connecticut played on the home floor on March 7th was also an easy victory. The final score being 48-6. The Varsity also played a game with the alumnae team, which consisted of graduate Varsity players. The Varsity won by a score of 50-2.5. 1. f. j. c. Lineup E. Burdick ( Captain ) s. c. R.

Duggan The purpose of the Young Women’s Athletic Association is to establish a high physical anti moral standard among the young women and to promote a spirit of friendly rivalry and general good fellowship. Meetings are held once each quarter. All women students are eligible for mem- bership. The Hare and Hound Chase given in the fall proved to be very successful. It is hoped that it will become an annual event. To encourage interclass contests the association awards a trophy cup to the winning class in basketball, track and tennis. The future holds great possibilities. Watch us grow! Rho Iota Kappa Founded 1908 Honorary Member Howard, Edwards, LL.D.

Vice-President Secretary-Treasurer The student governing bodies of the college have been among the most active organizations. Besides presiding as the watch-dog and law-giver of the freshmen, they instill the whole student body with a true Rhode Island spirit toward its Alma Mater. The men representatives from the various classes are chosen as follows, eight seniors, four juniors, two sophomores, and one freshman. This arrangement is obvi- ously not in proportion to the number remaining in the individual classes, but is designed to give authority to those who are most capable. Tau Kappa Alpha William F.

Seated are the President, Profs. Poggins, Jalcs, and Feldred. A student, anyone at all, is standing in the middle, nervously picking a daisy and playing " she loves me; she loves me not. " Jales: " Er-er-Smith, we are here to help you out. " Smith: sarcastically: " Thanks.” Jales: " Er-cr Smith, I find that you have not successfully fulfilled certain re- quirements placed upon you by this committee at our last meeting. You have had plenty of time to make this work up. What seems to be the difficulty?” Smith: " Well, it ' s like this. Prof; I ' ve been very busy every afternoon trying out for the bean-bag team, and then my health hasn ' t been so good lately. I have a doctor ' s certificate here to that effect.” Jales: " Er-cr Smith, whatever made you think you wanted to be an Engineer? " Smith: " Well, Sir, I read a lot of these adds and they all said it was a soft life with plenty of gravy. " Jales: " You haven’t the right attitude. Smith; I don’t think you arc an engineer. Why don’t you try something else? " Smith: " No one thought Columbus was a discoverer either. " Jales: " If that is all you can say for yourself, Smith, I would suggest that you withdraw from college until we get the new Engineering building. What do you think, gentlemen?” Feldred: " Ugh, Ugh.” Poggins: " Yes, and then again no.” Jales: " So voted. So long, Smith; don’t take any wooden nickels and look out for the horsccars. " Smith: " There’s a mistake here someplace. I came here with a pearl umbrella for Joe Ncydo. You must be thinking of my twin brother, who graduated while we were here. " Jales: " That’s no sort of efficiency. Why didn’t you tell us about this at the start, Doctor? " The Doctor: " Hell ' s bells! I was trying to, but I couldn’t get a word in side ways. Er-Smith, you can go now.” Smith: " Thank you, Doctor. " Curtain By “Etiob” fg! Headed ro " l)0WH the l n£ iog«0 " o- ' (5’-? •)o 3 n in c. 1_ in c.

One bears the legend " The College Shop”, the centre one, " Tony’s Coffee House”; the one on the left, " The Village Store. ’ Two students are arguing in front of the central one. It is 4.30 in the afternoon, and the sun is just beginning to glow red in the west. Doc: " Methinks Makin, that of the three merchants Antony is most likely to be hung up, eh?” Al: " Shylock, " (pointing to ‘The College Shop,’) " needeth trade, and he should fall for the oil. " Doc: " Jesse James is out of the question; he soaks 18 shekels for a deck of 15 cent fags.” Enter two Profs with milk pails: " Pa " Tebster and " Tip " Wyler. Both look at the coffee house. Pa: " Pooh! " Tip: " Pooh! " Tony: (thru window): " Pooh, pooh!” Doc and Al in unison: " Good afternoon. Professor.” Both Profs nod distantly. (A moment later ) Al: " — % $ ( )” Doc: " — %$()• " They shake hands. A figure on bicycle approaches. Al and Doc: " Prime! I owe him for a hair cut.” They run into " Tony ' s. " Scene Two Inside of " Tony’s. " Several co-eds are eating sundaes and being bored by the boys from Phi Kappa Phi house. Doc and Al are leaning against the counter wonder- ing how they are going to work it. They whisper together, and decide to work the old stall. Al: " Hamburg and coffee. " Doc: “Make it.” Enter Bone: Bone: " Hi. " Everyone Else: " Hi. " Bone: " Hamburg and coffee.” Tony appears with two hamburgs and coffee, which Al and Doc grab off and tear into Bony ' s stall. Eventually Bones is also ready. Business of eating. They prepare to leave. " Al " digs down, but comes up empty handed but smiling. Al: " Gee, I forgot my change. " Doc: " Me too. " Bone lays down a dime and a jit and makes a frantic dive for the door, but is knocked down and brought back. Without murmuring he digs out thirty cents more and mournfully leaves. Doc and Al ( » chorus ): " Thanks.” Bone: " Sucked again. " Enter Professor Pill ' s. P. P.: " Hi everybody. " Everybody: Silence: P. P. : " C ' mon, don ' t high hat me. Lemonade for the bunch. " Enter Captain Burch on horseback. He hears Pill’s offer and suddenly his eyes fill with tears. Capt. Burch: " Boys, there will be no more drill for the rest of the year. " Everybody faints and about that time Prexy rushes in, sizes up the situation at a glance, and assumes the pose Mark Antony used when burying Caesar. Prexy: " Ladies and Gentlemen, you should have traded at the East Hall Cafe- teria. It isn ' t in the contract.” By Enob. Curtain TEN YEAR ' S HENCE ? By Their Words Ye Shall Know Them i .
