CASE Qovernor of Rhode Island Eighteen Governor Case’s Message When a great general declared that the Battle of Waterloo was won on the cricket field at Eton, he recorded, in a picturesque manner, a truth which many learn too late; the truth that the victory of life was won, not on the fields where the decisive struggle occurs, but in the forgotten hours of preparation. Success or failure lies in our hands long before the hour of final test comes. Knowledge can not be gained on short notice, except by the person whose mind is already well stocked; a particular skill can be acquired rapidly only by the person who has trained all his faculties. In the higher fields of success there are no accidents; men and women reap precisely what they have sown ; they do well what they have prepared to do. This preparation is often unconscious. The larger and deeper part of preparation for the greater experiences and works of life is always unconscious. We do not real- ize when we are making ourselves strong, rich and powerful in resource and char- acter. Nothing is lost on the person who is bent upon growth ; nothing wasted on one who is always preparing for his work and his life by keeping his eyes, mind and heart open to nature, books and experience . One of the functions of our Rhode Island State College is to build strong men and women ; men and women who will be a true force in the world. The State has been liberal in an effort to supply needs to that end. I congratulate members of the Class of ’29 upon attaining that prized goal which fits them for the larger duties of life. Rhode Island appreciates the efforts of President Edwards and his associates in their earnest labor. Through their efforts, supported by our General Assembly. Rhode Island State College is keeping abreast of the times. The new library, engineering building, auditorium and gymnasium are gifts from generous people in recognition of student loyalty, interest and determination. Norman S. Case Governor Providence, R. I., April 24, 1929. Nineteen T HE weighty and portentous thing about Time is that it has no reverse gear. Relentlessly it rushes ever forward and bears us with it onward. To mark our passage we make our fleeting records and leave them at intervals that others, following behind us, may know that we have passed this way — and when and how. This is the meaning of the Grist of Nineteen Twenty-Nine. In the neat row of Grists it takes just now the latest place. Like its predecessors it is a student effort to fix and visualize a moment in the flowing life of the College. Worthily and helpfully those who have labored before us have portrayed the College year by year, and as we have looked through their eyes — through what they have given us in their Grists — we have been able to see and to rejoice in the strong, wholesome, pulsing life of our Alma Mater in those other stages of her development, fore runners of our own. For those that follow us may this our Grist of 1929 perform an equal service. Both in the life it reveals and in the manner of revealing that life, may it be worthy of the succession, past and to come, in which it now takes its place.

Twenty-nine STATE Alma Mater Fruitful dream of a visionary Begun in the humblest way, Adopted protectress of an earnest youth, Slow nurtured for many a day; Symbol of an idealistic race, Stanved for political gain; Serving, while begging the means to serve, At the breasts we students drain. IV c children of peasants for knowledge suck At paps held dry by neglect, While those of the rich in Follic’s muck Drink deep with their favored sect. How well of granite thy halls were built, To wait a day of parity; How 7uell atop a rocky hill, Oh, mother in frugality! Live on, to noble lessons teach, Withstand the ignorant scorn; Cuddle thy babes in thy tortured arms. Hail! The chill gray light of dawn! —A. J. McC. Thirty Cl Mee CLASS OF 1929 Senior In harmony with the rapid development of our Alma Mater the class of ’29 has set a precedent in student achievement for the classes who are to follow us. Class co-ordination has been the keynote of our success throughout our four years. We began our Freshman year by providing yearling athletic teams which were the nucleus of the varsity material in our last three years. Our “Frosh " basketball team surpassed all previous records and then in their last year they furnished their Alma Mater with the greatest Basketball Team Rhody has ever had. Socially, our entire four years have lieen glorious successes. Our first major dance, namely the Soph Hop, illustrated our real ability to obtain class organiza- tion and support. Then on through the years we maintained that class devotion which predominated in all of our activities. Deviating from the lighter side of life the class of ’29 ventured into the scholastic realm by achieving h igh honors in even ' department of our institution. And now we are at the end. Four years of close friendship has enshrouded our sojourn in Kingston with a happiness we shall never forget. We are about to leave. May the success which we have achieved follow us into the world, to bring honor and glory to our Alma Mater. William H. Trumbull Class History of 1929 William I?. Trumbull Emily S. Heap Celeste A.

Orchestra (4). Music and “Abbie” are synonymous. Whenever the strains of some peppy melody are heard on the piano, close observation discloses " Abbie” tickling the “ivories. " School spirit per- sonified, he was sure to be found at every athletic contest and student function. However, music is a pastime in which he indulges only when not engrossed in some problem, for " Abbie " is another " electricker " who wants to electrify the world with his genius. There is a heap of genius in the “five foot two " that means " Abbie " to the Campus. Edward Aceto Providence, R. I. “Chauncey, " “Ed " Electrical Engineering Student Branch .1. . H. ;. Society (3. 4); Praternity Basket- ball (3, 4); Pootball (1). “Chauncey” is our representative from the wilds of Provi- dence, who came to " Rhody " in the fall of 1925 to probe the intricacies of " Andy’s” courses. He immediately proceeded to make a name for himself on the campus as a member of the Three Musketeers, and the notorious King Phillip House gang. A ready smile, keen wit, and the ability to appreciate a joke, even though he be the “goat, " have endeared " Chauncey " in our hearts forever. We wish you plenty of luck and feel that you will succeed in any endeavors which you undertake in the future. Edward George Anderson Providence, R. I. “Andy” Chemical Engineering Track ( 1 , 2, 3. 4); Cross Country ( 1. 2. 3. 4); Chemical So- ciety (2, 3, 4); Art Editor Grist; Publicity Committee; Poster Committee. " Andy, " it seems, has been given a mis-nomer. He should have been called " Safety Razor. " He’s a “Gem, " " Ever-ready” with keen humor. Not only can he crack a joke, but he can draw, and how ! His four years at Rhody saw more and fancier posters than any other period in the history of the college. Is " Andy” a chemist? Boy! How that fellow can chemis- trate. We expect that in a few years he will have concocted some conglomeration that will kill 456.71 guinea pigs with one drop. | 5iATE f:oiX6 fi3|g Henry Norman Armbrust, I A E Jamestown, R.

One who has noted " Hen ' s” frequent change of cars — he trades the old buggy in for another old one every year — would think that he had the basic instincts of a horse trader, but his real passion is the army and target shooting, not to mention a young lady who seems to appear at all the campus dances. A leader in several campus activities and a supporter of all of them, Army’s graduation is a real loss to the campus community. Grino Mario Armeno Providence, R. I. “Armeno " Applied Science Track Squad 1, 2); Chemistry Society (I. 2); Biological Society (4). “Armeno came to us from the Providence Technical High School with a determination to probe into biological problems. A sturdy, cheerful youth he has been, and that we feel, he will always remain. Possessed of a congenial nature and a pleasing personality, " Armeno found no difficulty in making friends. We feel that we will always remember him as the industrious determined youth. No matter what he decides to do we feel confident that his perserverance and never-say-die spirit will yield no other return but success, and we wish him the best of luck. Ri ' th Barnes Cranston, R. I. “Barnesif.” Most Likely Old Maid Home Economics Tennis (1, 2, 3, 4). When Ruth came to us from Cranston High, she was a very quiet and sedate girl. Though four years have not wrought much change in her, all that know her admire her sterling qualities. She is a true friend, a very good student, and a fine tennis player. When Ruth leaves Rhode Island, she intends to teach school, and we all know that she will have the respect of her students as she has of her class mates. Much success and happiness, “Barnesie!” Thirty-four Nathan Blackman Providence, R. I. “Nat” Applied Science And here ' s a man. Quiet to the point of being retiring, and unassuming, but not to a fault. He has always ranked very well scholastically and is a really interesting friend and class- mate. He studies for the joy of studying and it reflects in the results. To listen to Nathan is to gain valuable knowledge. And practically, as the ads at the Post Office have ever re- minded us, " Nate " has shown himself to be no mean up- holsterer. Celeste A. Boss, A Z Providence, R. I.

Celeste is right there when it comes to basket- ball. For three years she played on the class team and this year she was a member of our victorious ' Varsity Squad. Not only in athletics docs Celeste shine. For two years she has been secretary of our class — a position of executive abi lity and popularity, and Celeste surely possesses both. Celeste is much interested in Art and some day we expect to see her name among the noted interior decorators. Donald Atwood Bunce, Z A E, l A Providence, R. I.

" Hi ‘Bill,’ is going to the Ball? Hired your ‘tux’ yet?” Yes, that’s " Don,” the business man of the campus. “Don " has decided to give up his business career for one in the field of chemistry. He attributes his decision to the efforts of his partners in a certain organic chem combination who were able to produce remarkable results with a small flask, a large burner, and a little H..O. Au revoir, “Don,” may you reap plentifully of life’s golden stores. Raymond V. P. Cahill B rockton, Mass. " Ray” Electrical Engineering Class Football (1); Hope Pull (1. 2); Glee Club (I, 2): Foot- ball squad (3. 4); Frock (l, 2, 3); Fraternity Basketball I, 2) : Officer ' s Club (3 ) , Sergeant (3) ; Fruit Judging (2); E. E. Society (3. 4). " Ray " belongs to that Brocktonian group which has left such a favorable impression upon our institution. He indulged in a year of practical engineering on the Conowingo job between his Sophomore and Junior years. With this able experience, he has been better equipped to attack the problems of his pro- fession. We are certain that “Ray’s” sense of responsibility coupled with his pleasant personality will be decided assets in his fu- ture career. Thelma Jeannette Carpenter, X £2 Cumberland, R. I. “Thel.” " Tilly” Home Economics Class Secretary (1); House Secretary (2); Tennis (2); Archery (3); Glee Club (2, 3); Commencement Play (3); House President (4). Thelma is one of the college beauties, picked by the class of ' 27. Not only a beauty, but unexcelled in good nature and sports- manship. Attention! Reward offered to anyone who can du- plicate her pronunciation of William. Thelma unlike most of us, has always had an outside attraction. Yale wasn’t so far, but when he moved to Detroit — . We wonder what she will do next year. Frank Edward Caulfield, P I K, ‘I A Central Falls, R. I.

" Coke’s " philosophy on college life is, " hard study, hard work, and much pleasure. Graduating in four years proves his hard study ; success in ‘Bill’ Whalen ' s courses. Broom Push- ing (1, 2). Kitchen (3, 4). show ' the second part is true; as for the pleasure — ’nough said.” “Coke” has shown his natural leadership by piloting the E. E. Society through it’s most successful year. There is no ques- tion as to his ability and some day we know he will be Mr. General of the General Electric Company. Thirty-sL John Walter Chapman, A X A Essex, Conn. “Chappie” “Gerald " Business Administration Rope Pull (1, 2); Basketball (1); Baseball ( 1 ); Economist Club (3, 4); Vice-President (4); Interfraternity Basketball (2). " Chappie” started four years ago in search of efficiency in the use of the proverbial slide rule, but finding this to be a start in the wrong direction he has now become an exponent of the " desk and swivel chair. " If Economic’s marks and campus business ventures are an indication of the successful business man, “Chappie” has surely gotten on the right track. Next year will probably find him on the road to making the business cycle loop-the-loop through the field of stocks and bonds. Richard Wardwell Conklin, $ M A, $ A, T K A Cranston, R. I. “Dick” Business Administration Track (1, 2); Debating (2, 3, 4); Glee Club (1, 2, 3, 4); Asst. Manager (3); Manager (4); Business Manager Plii Delta (3); Sopli Hop Committee (2); Student Council (3. 4); Econ- omists ' Club (3, 4); Officers ' Club (3, 4); Lieutenant (4). Culture, versatility, intelligence and personality are ably brought to us in the person of " Dick.” We find him engaged in many campus activities, including a position among the famous “Ned’s Boys,” yet he has maintained an enviable record in his scholastic activities. Dame Rumor has it that “Dick” has recently lost a debate, having been finally convinced that co-education has its good points. If " Dick’s” future is like his past, we will some day find him in Who’s Who. George Irving Cook, A X A East Greenwich, R. I. “Cookie,” “G. I. " Business Administration Track (l, 2, 3, 4) ; Captain (4); R. I. Club (2. 3. 4); Officers’ Club (3, 4); Lieutenant (4); Military Ball Committee (4); Secretary, Officers’ Club (4); Student Council (3); Glee Club (1. 2, 3); Economist Club (4). “Cookie” has a peculiar propensity for going after the higher things in life, annexing the pole vault record of the college and the Eastern Intercollegiates. “G. I. " has not let his college life suffer, but has majored in co-edding, leaving his marks on the door knob of Chi-O. It is a question whether he is more expert with the arrow than the pistol. Having started to develop the earmarks of an honor student, “G. I. " will next year be batting for a thousand in the field of business. Thirty-seven Ruth Lucile Coombs, £ K, I» A North Providence, R. I. “Ruth” Most Popular Woman Home Economics Assistant Treasurer, Class (2,3); House President (3); Sec- retary, Phi Delta (4); Tennis (1); Secretary A. A. (3); Man- ager Tennis (4); Soph Hop Committee. And now we come to Ruth Lucile! Not just happen upon her, for Ruth is individuality personified. Her unusually cheerful disposition which has remained intact for four years, is her chief ally. Perhaps because of this reenforcement Ruth has plunged f orward to the " ed” line. Believing that variety is the spice of life, she has unconsciously added a new notch in her belt every year. And who could forget, " Go ' way. Sir!” Alton Henry Coon Providence, R. I. “Al” Electrical Engineering E. E. Society (4); Glee Club (2, 3); Track (1, 2); State College Players (4). “Al” is one of the few good banjoists on the Campus and made a hit with the " Hawaiians. " Very quiet and reserved, he was the life of any party when a “uke” was to be had, for one could not help but burst forth in song when he strummed the accompanying strains. Tickling electric currents always interested him, and this perhaps accounts for his choice of vocation. Lots of Luck, “Al, " but do be careful of “strong currents !” M. Esther Crandall, A Z, 4 A Providence, R. I. “Kid” Most Versatile Woman Home Economics Class Basketball (1, 3); Hockey (2. 3. 4); Panhellenic (3, 4): President (4); Student Government (4). When a fellow needs a friend, " Kid” is the kind of a per- son who always responds and we are all very fond of her. Her hobby is bacteriology in the class room, and in the open it is canoeing. In mental pictures we have her chopping wood at dawn on a house party, or peeling onions in the middle of Hundred Acres (culinary technique-peel onions under water). We were no-little surprised when, October last, she appeared with a Beta Theta Pi pin below her own. We’re certain that she will be successful in whatever career she chooses and wish her all happiness in the future. Thirty-eight Frances Mayhew Davies, E K West Roxbury, M ass. " Frannie” General Science Hockey (1. 2, 3, 4); Junior Prow Committee ; Baseball Man- ager (4); Secretary of Biology Club. “Frannie,” of D. U. Fame, who takes time out now and then from her diligent study of the ciliated protozans and their rela- tives, to shake a wicked hockey stick at the world and its cares. Without her daily epistles to and from Maine we fear the Kingston post office would become a mere memory. Joseph DiSano Providence, R. I. “Cagey,” “Joe” Electrical Engineering Track (1, 2, 3); E. E. Society (3, 4). " Cagey” heard that the world needed a Steinmetz, — so he came to Kingston to prepare himself for wrestling the " E ' s " and “I ' s.” “Joe” has always been an enthusiastic student— his name having bedecked the honor roll frequently. Yet studies were a minor sport with him, since he possessed a weakness for week-ends — Providence being his field for social endeavors. We have always found “Joe " a pleasing companion and if personality plus points towards success he has a good supply of both. Best wishes, — " Cagey.” Doris Elizabeth Dyson, 4 Z, T K A, $ 4, ‘l K I Providence, R. I. “Dottie " Most Scholarly Woman Home Economics Class Debating (2, 3); Varsity Debating (3. 4); Debate Council (4); Manager of Basketball (3, 4); Class Honors (2). Does anyone desire information concerning Nicaragua or the Jury System? Just call on “Dottie. " She is exceedingly versatile. Debating is not her only activity, for she has been manager of our basketball team, and scholastically she is among the best, making Phi Kappa Phi and winning the Economics prize in her Junior year. The ability which has carried her so successfully through her college career, her dependability and determination will cer- tainly gain for her the highest position of her chosen pro- fession.

He came to us from New Haven Collegiate Prep School in quest of knowledge and to teach the Rhode Islanders some basketball for which he was noted. He soon made himself known on the basketball court and then proceeded to show the profs that athletes could make Phi Kappa Phi and Tau Kappa Alpha. “Eppie " intends to further his education in s school and we all wish him the best of luck. ; graduate Allen Frederick Ernst, $ M A Providence, R.

" Shake " is one of the best liked fellows on the campus. Enter- jng vigorously into scholastic and athletic activities at Rhode Island, he should be well qualified for coping with the busi- ness world. As a member of the " Business Ad " course he has taken to managerial positions as readily as a duck takes to water. In the annals of his college he will be listed as indus- trious and faithful to both his studies and his friends. Ida Olney Fleming, A Z, T K A, I A Providence, R.

Whether she is playing the role of a dashing debutante or earnestly lauding our foreign policy she is equally capable.

Here is the man who saw every nut and bolt of the building program go into place. “Bill” is an ardent exponent of engi- neering from a practical viewpoint, and spent a good part of every day in the buildings during their construction, studying all the details. " BiH’s " clear, logical thinking has solved many a problem on the drill field, and in the life of the fraternities, which he guided as Polygon President. Daniel Francis Galvin, A X A Newport, R.

" Cozy Dan " has certainly done his bit promoting Rhody ' s athletic welfare, which is the sentiment of those of us who saw him captaining a game team through a “tough " football season. He is an author of note, having written more tentative sched- ules than any man now in college and this literary propensity has earned for him the title of " Conflicting Dan. " As a “B. T. U. Chaser,” among the Mechanical Engineers, “Gal " has done well. The mechanical field will soon have an- other competitor for Engineering honors. Ormand Gay, »P B X Dedham, Mass. " Orm " Mechanical Engineering Rifle Team (1, 2); College Band (1, 2); College Orchestra (4); M. E. Society (3. 4); Officers ' Club (3). " Little Ormie " is an adopted son of ' 29. He first entered Rhode Island with the class of ' 27, and after the termination of three successful years of study he joined the college of “hard knocks” for two years. Ormond is a natural born musician ; his drums take a mean beating in the college orchestra and his xylophone resounds to his majestic taps in the college Glee Club Concerts. He has had all of the trials and tribulations which are common to engineers, and through them all comes up smiling. Forty-one Harold Becker Gerlach, P I K Providence, R. I. “Hal” Electrical Engineering Freshman Baseball; Corporal (2); Rope Pull (2); Track Squad (2, 3); Class Football (2); E. E.

" What does who know alwut what, and why ?”, he queries as he breaks in on a league, high class bull sessions being his favorite indoor sport. Under Prof. Anderson ' s able tutelage, our " Hal " has acquired sufficient knowledge of E. E. to shock the electrical world, although Lanza provided several boulders to make his path a little different from one of roses. Well, “Hal " , may all your circuits be closed with the key of success ! Alice St. Clair Gladding, IK, OA Jamestown, R. I. “Alice” Home Economics Panhcllenic (3. 4); Treasurer Y. IV. C. A.

" She has been particularly active in Y. W. and Panhellenic, proving that outside activities as well as studies came in for their share of attention. A pleasing per- sonality, coupled with generosity, and Alice ' s individual " talk- ing " ability — her success in the future goes unquestioned. Hope Griffith, X Q Providence, R.

To some “Grif” appears quiet and reserved, but not so to those who know her. Since her sophomore year the train service between N. H. U. and R. I. S. C. has been well supported, also the U. S. Post Office. However, all her interests are not in X. H., for whenever there is a poster to be made, printing to be done, or original invitations to be made, she can do it.

Here, folks, is the Chief of the Chemical Squad. When “Tom " was a conscientious freshman. Phi Kappa Phi was on his list of activities, and for two years he held to the straight and narrow, finally becoming disillusioned and increasing his social scope. Always a lover of things militaristic, “Tom " is now a full fledged second lieutenant in the Reserve Corps. Throughout all of our four years’ association with “Tom " we have yet to hear from his lips other than a good word about his professors or about his fellow students.

We all know " Peggy, " the only Titian in our class who had been prominent in many activities on the campus. She possesses the lovable qualities of joyfulness and good nature. A graceful dancer, a sense of good humor has always made her presence desirable. We could never understand how Mother Nature could claim “Peg” and “Lucy " to be twins, but after being with us four years, we can readily realize that nature never lies. A pleasing personality, and a broad-minded attitude are sure to make " Peg” appreciated by all those with whom she may associate. Forty-three Allan Reed Haskins, P I K East Providence, R. I.

But “Moon’s” most successful campaign was conducted at Nantucket where he proved one of the most accomplished bell hops on the island.

One of the youngest members of the class, yet by her suave sophistication she would impress you as being a cultured daughter of society rather than a student. She is an able executive, a charming hostess, exceptionally artistic, and a good athlete, winning renown in the latter field through basketball.

Coach Keaney stamps him as one of the greatest athletes to have ever represented Rhody, and the out- standing college baseball player in the country. Although he plays best at baseball, we always like to think of him on the basketball court, where his sensational play coupled with accurate shooting and maneouvers, thrilled us continually. His scholastic achievements have only been outshown by his athletic prominence. All Rhody extends to him sincercst wishes for a bright and successful future.

With the passing of this class, Rhody is losing one of her inimitable characters in the person of " Mouse. " As a student he is “par excellence,” and his mechanical designs, (A la Gold- berg), and technical phrases have all the earmarks of genius. Not only has he been a big leaguer in Lanza ' s courses, but he has also batted for a thousand in that national collegiate game of Co-edding. " Mink” expects to enter the field of aeronautics, and we may rest assured that his progress will be rapid. Gladding Thompson Johnson, I» M A Cumberland, R. I. " Rip” Electrical Engineering E. E.

This carefree young man came to us from Classical High School, in search of higher knowledge, that he might follow in the honored footsteps of his father. Travelling at high speed on two wheels or four has never interfered with his ability to run for the glory of his " Alma Mater. " Well liked by the Coeds as well as the Eds, “Rollo’s” good natured yet aggres- sive manner has won him many friends and should carry him past many of the future ' s obstacles.

Mary needs no introduction to anyone on the campus, for she is one of the outstanding girls in the class. Her pleasing personality, coupled with her irresistible Irish wit, has made her a friend to everyone.

Keenly interested in all athletics, being a close peruser of every sports sheet, he has always been known as a fighter in any competition. In all this he has just been upholding his home town tradition at Rhode Island.

But “Mac ' s” efforts are by no means confined to books, for he is very popular, and has figured quite prominently in the social affairs of the college.

For the first two years the civil engineering course looked good to George, but then, seeing the advantages of the Business Administration course under Doctor Newman, he transferred. " Mac” is very congenial to all with whom he comes in con- tact, especially with the fair sex. Accordingly, no dance or social function is complete without him.

He seemed a quiet and unassuming lad but when we came to know him, we found him a pleasant chap always ready for a good time. He has been a regular attendant at college functions, especially the dances, and recently has taken a sudden " interest " in the west side of the campus. " Mac " has so moulded his life and so determined his col- lege career that complete harmony has existed between him and those with whom he has come in contact.

As president of the Stu- dent Government Association she has attained the highest po- sition available to co-eds. She aspires to become a captain of Industry, and at the same time marry and raise at least five children. And we honestly believe she will succeed in doing it, and run for congress for good measure.

" Ole’s " motto has been " Don’t let it worry you. " His con- stant smile has won for him many friends among the profs and students alike. “Ole " seems to get more real pleasure out of his work than most of us. With his mechanical engineering ably abetted by several years of outside experience, “Ole " should be well prepared for his chosen vocation. Lewis Benjamin Palmer, 0 X Wakefield, R. I. Most Original Man Business Administration Wittiest Man Track Squad (1); Assistant Manager. Football (2); Econ- omist Club (1. 2, 3. 4); Freshman Beacon Board. Behold our " Lew,” master of ceremonies at all " bull sessions” with an unlimited supply of stories and a method of telling them which would bring tears to a glass eye. During hunting season " Lew” is seen with a shot gun in one hand and a hale hook in the other looking for game. He is a talented jazz pianist, to date he has wrecked three pianos. He does not neglect his studies, and with his pleasing personality should achieve success. Fifty-six Frederick Panciera Westerly, R.

But, after commuting for a while, he sold out, and joined the campus throng and revelled therein. . Feeling the call of the wild, and the challenge of Jackson ' s courses, " Foch” became a Chemical Engineer, and proved his worth as a student. The only chemical engineer in captivity without a Jackson make-up chalked on his record. Can you " feature " that? Well “Foch, " all your host of friends wish you the best of luck as an acid juggler.

Extrovert, leader of glee clubs and armies, business man, athlete and student (without being the proverbial grind). " Pete " is all of these, and in all has done a good job. Our Glee Club for the past two years can attribute its success largely to " Pete’s” efforts, for Monday evenings of the past four years have found him with the college vocalists. The business world is his for the asking, for here ' s a fellow that is going to be successful in making friends as well as million dollar deals. Franklin Pierce Owen Potter, P I K North Scituate, R.

To accomplish this mission “Frank " immediately set to work and for two years proved one of ' 29 ' s best students. Beginning his third year as a student of the Culinary Arts in South Hall, may possibly account for his failure to con- tinue his previous pace. We wonder. After knowing “Oscar” for four years we feel sure he will make the grade and be one of Pa Webster’s famous dam (?) engineers. At the end of his college career we cannot help but add “well done, Frank.” Fifty-seven Thomas Francis Power, I B X Newport, R. 1. “Tom” Business Administration Scabbard and Blade (3, 4); Officers ' Club 3, 4); Sergeant (3); 1st Lieutenant (4); Economists ' Club (2, 4); Fraternity Basketball (2, 3. 4). Well, here is another boy from Newport. Although " Tom” is not an athlete, he has shown his college spirit by being an ardent rooter of Rhody ' s teams. In the four years that he has been with us, he has won the respect of all. His success in Cap- tain Carter ' s army is just one of his many accomplishments. By his serious hard-working attitude, we feel confident that “Tom” will come through with flying colors in the business world.

He immediately settled down and made his presence felt by the numerous activities in which he took part, — climaxed by his election to the captaincy of the Cross-Country team in his Senior year. Although not a victim of the Terpsichorean art, he has a pro- nounced weakness for the fairer sex. We feel sure that his pep and enthusiasm will carry him through to a successful future in all of his ventures. Joseph Matthew Santoro, I B X Providence, R.

This handsome young man w ' ith the dark brown eyes and entrancing smile is our snappv young adjutant as well as being a front row member of the first tenors in the glee club. The outstanding player in any game of tennis, basketball, or football, he is at home’ in the water or on the dance floor. It is needless to say that he finds extreme favor in feminine eyes as a model young gentleman. May suc- cess and prosperity be with you always " Joe.” Fifty-eight Henry B. Scott, L Warwick, R.

The expression that “time changeth all things” is proven by “Scotty.” When he entered Rhody as a freshman, he was an innocent, unsophisticated youth. What a change! Clever, witty, and debonair, he leaves us. “Scotty” has his ups and downs in pole vaulting, but has stuck it through for four years. His eternal youth is the envy of the coeds, who gently jibe him with the remark, “Are you a freshman? " Methusaleh may have a competitor in this lad. “Scotty, ' Harold Urminger Scott Providence, R.

" Scotty” needs no introduction to us. for he made an enviable record as a football player alone. He achieved the unusual honor of winning his R. I. after one season on the gridiron. " Scotty” is also a weighman of note, throwing the discus being his specialty. He has done exceptionally good work in inter fraternity athletics, particularly in basketball. In the future, no doubt, “Scotty” will be quite the authority on the “ups and downs,” and the “whys and whens” of the ivorld. Arthur Zuar Smith, 0 X East Providence, R. I. “A.

Z.” You never have to ask who injected those strange bits of humor into those Beacon editorials, for you’d soon know that only “Art” could be serio- comic and still be popular. Editors, you know, are seldom liked. “A. Z.” is a runner, too, and whenever he scampered down the end of a cross-country race, you’d soon notice his elongated legs— and then that smile. Some say his future is in radio, but we believe he’ll some day edit the “P Journal”— or possibly the N. Y. Times. Fifty-nine Axel Harry Stenholm, B I». I K «l Newport, R. I. “Stenny " Business Administration Track ( 1 , 2); Economists ' Club (3. 4); Honors 1. 2. 3, 4); Elected to Phi Kappa Plii in Junior Year. “Stenny” is the grandfather of the class, a man of high ideals and ambitions, quiet and reserved, with a keen sense of humor and a pleasing personality. After fighting the " school of hard knocks " for eight years, “Stenny” returned to high school and then came to R. 1. Throughout the four years " Stenny " has been " high man " in the K. A. course. With the passing of years we expect to find him the “high man” of his profession. Such determination and ambition are rarities peculiar to success.

He ' ll write not whether “Stan” won or lost, but how he played the game. This has been “Stan’s” spirit throughout his short stay at “Rhody. " A glance into the future will see Mr. Szulik a happily married man at twenty-five, and New England representative of the " Consolidated Chemical Co.,” with his able assistant Mr. " Ted” Pykosz, incidentally his closest friend.

That his in- tellect is in direct proportion to his height may be proved by the way he steps over " Lanza’s " many stumbling blocks. " Charlie” is now engaged in working on a new type of towel to wipe out the initial condensation from a steam engine. On the strength of this research work, Brown and Sharpe have engaged this budding genius to solve many of their complex engineering problems. Anthony Carruthers Thatcher Rehoboth, Mass. “Tony,” " Cy, " “Taters” Business Administration Rope Pull (1, 2); Baseball (I); Glee Club (1); Orchestra (1); Chemical Society (2); Track (2); Economists Club (2,3.4). “Tony " is the first to represent Taunton High School at Rhode Island, and as such has set a very high standard tor future men of that institution to follow. He is quite versatile, being a carpenter, farmer, business executive, athlete, teacher, and lover. After week-ending for two years, “Tony " discovered an in- definable something in the Kingston atmosphere, and since then has been content to remain in Little Rest and wait for his daily inspirational letters. You carry with you our unanimous wish for success and happiness, “Tony.” William Bernard Trumbull, P I K Chicopee Falls, Mass.

Massachusetts did one good thing when it gave us " Our Bill, " and Rhody says, “Thanks a lot.” “Bill’s” clean sportsmanship and frequent cries of “Judas Priest” have made everyone respect and admire him. Athletic- ally speaking, “Bill” was one of our best, being one of the three to secure letters in three major sports. Chicopee Falls is bound to be a better place to live in when " Bill " leaves Rhody to take up the responsibilities of City Engineer. Thomas Visgilio, Jr. Westerly, R.

This non- chalant and good-natured youth so completely undermined " Buggy” Barlows courses that he graduated in the specified time with flying colors. “Pee Wee” has a notion that he would like to be an M.D. but we don ' t know about that. There’s just one difficulty, “Pee Wee.” Be sure to select a medical school far far away from a " co-edery.” Sixty-onc Florence Evelyn Whitaker, A Z Providence, R.

Mm Kay Vice-President Barbara E. Nichols Secretary Charles J. Lazar ek Treasurer Harriet E. Viali Assistant Treasurer Prof. Joseph Y. Ince Faculty Advisor The Class of 1930 needs no introduction, as its members have emblazoned its numerals with renown by their earnest efforts in scholarship, athletics, dramatics, and the numerous other activities which are so important in college life. Being one of the largest classes to register at Rhode Island, we had many men who showed promise of developing into star athletes. These men contributed a great deal to the success of two of the most outstanding teams developed at the college, and the leaders elected for next year’s teams, from our class, have, by their grit, ability and sportsmanship, proven themselves worthy of the honor which has been conferred on them. With our Freshman year out of the way after turning out the strongest class track team to represent our Alma Mater in many years, and gaining recognition amongst the Upperclassmen, we passed the first milestone and entered upon the responsibilities of a Sophomore. For the first time we realized that we belonged in Kingston and were thankful that some guiding hand had directed us to Rhode Island; to its real friendships and fruitful associations. Our Sophomore year ended all too soon, and, with the summer passed, we again returned to our beloved Alma Mater, and to celebrate the big event in our class career. Prom — Kingston in May. With unheard of facilities, and true class support, it was a huge success. The memories of those days in May will never depart from our minds, and in the future when we are far distant from Kingston, we will feel as Browning did towards his beloved England, and we will say, Oh, to be in Kingston Now that May is here. And now with our departure just over the horizon, is it any wonder that we resolve to climax “the happiest moments in life’s fleeting hours,” and make our- selves worthy of the distinction which we must uphold as Seniors?

Providence Sixty-eight Hilton D. Roberts Sophomore Class History of 1931 Hilton D. Roberts President Alice C. Shaw Vice-President Sarah F. Barker Secretary Thayer W. Chase Treasurer The Class of 1931 is creating a record that points towards being the best any class will ever have left at Rhode Island State. Its achievements during the first half of its four year interim reveal that the class has distinguished itself not only in scholarship and dramatics, but also in the athletic and forensic fields. Though young, “green,” and bewildered by those experiences that are so commonly attributed to that world called collegiate, we nevertheless were soon capable of organizing ourselves. Our freshman football team was one of the greatest ever to be represented here since the inception of freshman sports. The clear-cut victory over the eleven from Storrs was the first ever to be registered over a Connecticut team. The basketball, track, and baseball teams were likewise of strong character as was witnessed by the fact that many Sophomores managed to make the Varsity teams this past year. Achievements in other fields are even more noteworthy. The Soph Hop, customarily the “white elephant” of previous years, was for the first time a fin- ancial success. The Class of 1931 can point to that success without feeling that it is priding itself with too much glory. The debating teams possess many Sophs : Phi Delta has even a larger percentage within its numbers. But the Class of 1931 feels it cannot stop here. To cease performing its duties would be selfishness on the Class’ part. So it continues its way. helping to broadcast to the world that it is ever becoming a bigger and better Rhode Island.

Kramer Freshman Class History of 1932 Maurice M. Kramer President Connie Stafford Vice-President Winifred Francis Secretary Harry R. Lewis, Jr Treasurer September of nineteen twenty-eight marked the beginning of an era of en- deavor on the part of the class of nineteen thirty-two in forging for themselves a position in the annals of Rhode Island State College as worthy as that attained by the other classes. The chaos of Freshman week will never be forgotten by those who attended the numerous lectures on how to study, school spirit, and what not. Many no doubt hopefully looked forward to the Freshman Informal, which culminated a week of nervous tension, and shall we confess it — a tinge of homesickness. Extra- curricular activities drew forth a large number of our members. Some, more versatile than others, came to the fore in their respective fields of activity. Foot- ball, basketball, baseball, track, and cross-country showed our athletic prowess; while our representatives in Dramatics, in the Glee Club, in the ( Jrchestra, and Debating, and on the Beacon staff set a mark worthy of any class. Our victories in both football and basketball over the mighty Sophomores permitted us to doff our caps one month earlier than the set date. Shall we ever forget the glorious celebration that night? In studies too, we have excelled. We entered into our scholastic work with zeal, which s| eaks well for the future of our class. High are our hopes for the future; of ambition there is plenty. We aspire to the heights, but then, we too have heard that oft quoted expression, “Hitch your wagon to a star.” Seventy- five CLASS OF 1932 Freshman Class Roster 1932 Name Course Home Agostinelli, Armand J.

Providence Eighty-two Attylrtir Eighty-three Football Football came around in early September with but five regulars back from the crack 1927 aggregation. Nothing daunted, Coach Keaney set out to place a formidable team on the gridiron. The season opened September 22nd, with Little Rhody (they did look little), pitted against the strong team of the Coast Guard Destroyer Force. Playing full fifteen-minute periods on a swelter- ing day, the team put up a good game, but the avalanche of fresh men against them proved Rhode Island ' s downfall, and late in the third period, the third successive team of the tars put over the only score of the game. The next week the team traveled to Orono and threw a scare into Coach Price ' s camp. Maine scored early in the game, but Rhode Island came back fighting, and in a beautiful eighty-yard march up the field, featured by Kearns’ running, scored when Capalbo pulled down a forward pass in the end zone. A light team, and no substitute material, however, proved too much, and Rlmdy lost to Maine 20-6. On October 6th, the team broke into the winning column, tak- ing the U. S. Coast Guard Academy into camp 6-0, “Chick " Roberts scoring the lone touchdown in the second period. On October 13th, Homecoming Day at Kingston, Rhody lost to New Hampshire 12-0. The game was played in a rainstorm, and Rhody proved to be a good mud horse during the first half, holding the far heavier opponents scoreless. In the third period, the New Hampshire " steam- roller” scored a brute force touchdown and late in the game a New Hampshire man picked up a loose ball and ran fifty yards for the second score. The following Saturday, the Blue and White rose to unexpected heights and turned back the Naval Training Station, which team later won the Service championship of the East by defeating the Quantico Marines. Magoun and Roberts worked well in the backfield, while Lazarek was in on almost every play attempted by the opponents. Rhody went after Lowell Textile next, but the loss of her quarterback on the first play of the game so incapacitated her that she was forced to return home on the small end of a 21-0 score. The next game was the Worcester Polytech game, about which the less said, the better. They won, 13-0. Playing against our old rivals at Storrs, with their backs to the wall, the team held off onslaught after onslaught of the fast charg- ing Connecticut backs. The team was worn out by its efforts, and succumbed, Connecticut winning 24-0. Rhody broke a nine-year “jinx " when Dick How es scored on a forward pass against Brown, but their second and third teams won the game, after a hard fight, 33-7. The main reason for the lack of success during the season was the inability to supply substitute material to carry on while the hard-working first eleven was taken out for a rest, this resulting in the saying of the Coach that, " The team that starts will finish unless they get killed.” Captains Galvin and Magoun, and Bill Trumbull arc sure to be missed, but with only these three graduat- ing, the season of 1929 ought to tell a different story, and we wish Captains Lazarek and Howes a more successful season. C i . Magoun (Backfield) Eighty-four Basketball On December 12, 1925, five green jcrseyed youths trotted out on the floor and opened the most successful season ever experienced by a yearling team at Rhode Island. Three years later, December 8, 1928, these same five men trotted out on the floor against New Bedford Textile School and commenced the most successful season ever experienced by a varsity team at Rhode Island. In the Freshman year they won thirteen games and lost none, and in their Senior year they won fifteen games and lost one, truly a remarkable record ! The only change made in the team was the replacement of Fleming (who had put on much excess avoirdupois in a year’s absence from the court) by Fred Ackroyd at center. Because of the impossibility of choosing one leader from four so equal players, Coach Keaney named four captains for the season; Hurwitz, Trumbull, Magoun, and Epstein. That they all four were able leaders is made clear by the fact that each of them was picked on several all opponent teams and Hurwitz received the distinctive honor of being named on the mythical all-New England five. These four men are graduating this year and Rhode Island is losing four of the greatest players ever to represent her on a basketball court. They kept the new gymnasium record clear and we hope this will be true of their successors. The accounts of the games are something all students know by heart but we shall attempt to give a few high lights. New Bedford Textile, U S. C. G. Destroyer Five, U. S. N. Training Station and Boston University were taken into camp easily. The first tough nut to crack was the St. Stephen’s quintet ; they started off fast but some beautiful long shooting by A1 Hurwitz and " Horse” Magoun, Rhody ' s stellar guards, took the wind out of their sails and we won 45 to 26. Arnold College, Coast Gua rd Academy, and the University of Maine fell before us. The score of the Maine game, 48-28, was due to a scoring spree by Ackroyd. The Connecticut game at Kingston drew the largest crowd of the year, the new gymnasium being filled to capacity. The boys came through, thanks to the wonderful shooting of Hurwitz, 30-25. The game at Northeastern was thrilling, going to two overtime periods before Rhody came out on top 49-43. Bill Trumbull ' s steady shooting kept Rhode Island always up in front in this game. On March 2, the team lost its only game of the season to their rivals, Connecticut, by the score of 38-27. As the Coach said later (we don’t dare print what he said at the time), “It does us all good to receive a set-down every so often.” The Brown game at Kingston — it just rained baskets, that’s all — we believe Brown got something like one basket the first half, while we collected thirteen ! The Coast Guard Academy game at New London was another good game. They led the first half, but the boys came back strong to win 32-23. The final game of the season was at Brown, where we won 29-21. At the end of the season the team was banqueted by Doctor Edwards, and was awarded blue letters on white sweaters, a deviation from the usual custom, to show exceptional ability. The first team, Hurwitz, Trum- bull, Magoun, Epstein, Ackroyd, and Manager Hcuberger received these. Eighty-six f gfATE mfXj jEQ Back Row: M. kearns, j. heuberger, coach keanev, p.

The main reason for the pessimistic attitude adopted at the outset of the season was the lack of pitchers. Captain Draghetti was the only twirler left to carry on through a schedule of sixteen games. But what we lacked in quantity we made up for in quality, for “Drag " pitched ten of the hardest games and came out on top in nine of them, and poor support accounted for his only loss, and incidentally the only loss of the season. Out of the twelve victories there were many choice games which did our hearts good to witness. The first of these was with the strong Boston University nine which came down and went home on the end of a 15-5 score, the game being featured by the heavy hitting of “Curly” Stevens. Coach Keaney ' s alma mater. Bates, came and after a nip and tuck game for nine innings, we came out on top 3-2, thanks to a stupendous home run by Ted Pykosz in the last half of the ninth inning. Ted made three out of the six hits made by Rhode Island. Just to show Brown that we weren’t lucky when we beat them two years ago we took them into camp again to the tune of 2-0, “Drag” letting the Bears down with three hits. Next came two straight victories over Connecticut 5-2, at Kingston, and 9-8 at Storrs, the game being the first baseball game won on Connecticut’s field in recent years. In this game Hurwitz did a pretty job of relief pitching, coming to “Drag’s” rescue and saving the game for dear old Rhody. It isn’t always that you can save the best things to the last, but the 1928 team surely did. On June 7, the team travelled to Cambridge to (as a Boston paper put it) “participate” in a game with Harvard. Well, we participated all right, and Harvard precipitated all right, and, anyway, we won 2-0. Draghetti allowed only three hits but was “heart- failure brothers” on the pass- ing act, giving out eleven free tickets. Kingston was a great place to be that night, with a bonfire and cheering, and even the co-eds were let out. The only setback of the season was a 7-4 defeat by Colby on April 27, the team hit well, but errors combined with walks gave the visitors the breaks and the game. Other victories turned in were over Lowell Textile twice, Worcester P. I., Newport T. S., and St. Michaels. Dr. Edwards again proved the grand old sportsman when he presented the meml ers of the team with gold baseball charms in honor of their highly successful season. As this goes to press we wish to extend our heartiest sympathy to Theodore Pykosz, who after leading the 1928 team in hitting with an average over .500, has injured his ankle so badly in 1929 pre-season training that he will be out for the year.

Among those of the class of 1928 who graduated, and left track history, as well as having many records credited to their names, were " Bob " Talbot, “Speed " Randall. “Bob " Bruce, “Laurie” Dring, " Pick " Hammett, " Eddie " Foster, and " Eddie " Intas. Others who con- tributed to the fine work of this group were George Cook, Howard Droitcour, " Dick” Howes, “Phil” Lenz, “Bill " Partridge, " Wally " McLean, and " Lonnie” Johnson. The season opened April fourteenth, with the Varsity trimming the Freshmen 124-11. The Varsity took all firsts, but time in all events was poor due to bad weather conditions. On April twenty- first, we went down before Brown 70-65 in the closest of meets. The honors in first places were even, each team winning seven, and tie- ing for the other. Captain Talbot won three first places, in the hundred, two-twenty, and broad jump. Bruce won the hammer readily, while Cook tied with Captain Stevens of Brown for honors in tlie pole vault. The next Saturday we gave Connecticut the worst defeat that Rhody has ever given a rival in Track. The final score was 112-23. We won fourteen out of the fifteen first places ; Connecticut getting one lone first in the high hurdles. Captain Talbot was the star in the meet, getting his usual three first places, and breaking the college record in the broad jump with a leap of twenty- two f eet, eight inches. On May fifth, the team went down to defeat before the powerful and well balanced Holy Cross aggregation. Although beaten,, our team put up a wonderful exhibition, as evidenced by the jumping of Lenz and Johnson, who jumped six feet and one-eighth inches, only to place second. The team entered a team in the New England Eastern Inter- collegiate Track Meet, and met such colleges as Worcester Tech., Connecticut, Springfield, Tufts, Norwich, Mass. Aggies, North- eastern, and Trinity. We managed to place second to Northeastern with a total of forty-one and one-half points. Captain Talbot tied the record in the hundred and two-twenty yard dashes, and broke the record in the broad jump. Bruce broke the record in the hammer throw, as did George Cook in the pole vault. Rhody’s other first place was turned in by " Zip” Partridge in the javelin throw. With such a good group of performers dropping out at the same time, it will be hard for Rhode Island to keep up to the standard set by them, but with the addition of the new board track, and under Tootell’s masterful tutelage, Rhody is sure to stay in the track spot- light. We wish the best of luck to Captains-elect George Cook and Wallace McLean. Capt. IV. McLean Capt. G. 1. Cook Ninety - gTATE Rear Row: g. johnson, b. mayhew, l.

Ninety-one Cross Country Due to loss by graduation of three of last year’s cross-country stars, Larry Dring, Benny Fine, and “Pickles” Hammett, this year’s team was somewhat weaker than usual. Nevertheless, the season resulted in two victories and one defeat. If Captain Pykosz had not early in the season wrenched his ankle, the record would have been unblemished by defeat, because Pykosz would have finished much better in every meet. The following summary gives the order in which the team finished in each race, the missing numbers indicating places taken by opponents : Rhody 26 Brown 33 2 Bean 4 Hersey 5 Armstrong 7 Smith 8 Pykosz 9 Szulik 10 Magoun Rhody 29 Boston Univ. 27 1 Bean 4 Hersey 7 Johnston 8 Pykosz 9 Anderson 10 Smith 12 Armstrong Rhody 24 Worcester Poly. 32 1 Bean 3 Hersey 5 Pykosz 7 Anderson 8 Osterlund 10 Smith 12 Johnston Bean and Hersey, consistently the best performers, are Juniors and will be available next year. Jimmy Armstrong and Eric Osterlund will also be here next season, and these four, plus three of the freshman team, will make a strong aggregation. Ninety-two LBU ffinME 1S1L AN Cross Country at Rhode Island The team of this year has done excellent work in carrying on the tradition of those who went before them in bringing the White and Blue over hill and dale to victory. In recent years the Cross Country record has been continually in danger, and has been broken several times. Members of the class of 1929 remember with pride the exploits of such men as “Rob” Strong, “Laurie” Dring, and “Pick” Ham- mett. “Bob” Strong broke his own record several times while representing the school. After his departure, his old teammate, “Laurie” Dring, again lowered the record for the tiring “long course.” Strong, running in competition with DeMar, Hennigan and other famous vet- erans of the marathon trail, placed first in the marathon conducted by the city of Providence two years ago. He repeated in another marathon, against competition of like calibre a short time later, with a smaller handicap. The tradition is being carried on. Men like Pykosz, Szulick, Smith, and others have done the work during the past season, and a fast group is on hand for next year. Armstrong, Hersey, Bean and others will run, assisted by several prospects from the Frehman team of the past Fall, a team which took every place in its contest with the Brown yearlings. With such material at hand Tootell should be enabled to carry on with an excel- lent distance team for the next three years. Ninety-three Co ed Athletics Co-ed athletics opened in the fall with field hockey taking the place of the regu- lar gymnasium classes. With the girls having Lippitt Hall for their own gym- nasium, basketball was enjoyed and played by more girls than in any previous year. A class league was organized, and at the end of an exciting series, the Sen- iors, Juniors, and Sophomores were found deadlocked at the top. In the playoff, the Sophs, led by Captain Mary Chase, emerged the victors. Basketball relations were resumed with the Connecticut co-eds this year, and the first game was played at Lippitt Hall on February 16th. The game was closely played, and at the end of the first half Rhody led, 13-10, mainly due to the efforts of Captain Humes, who scored ten of the thirteen points. In the second half, with Mary Chase and Rosalind Mokray smothering Connecticut’s offense, and with " Kitty” MacKay having a shooting streak, Rhode Island came out victorious, 29-18. The co-eds travelled to Storrs on March 2nd for the return game, and won 35-18, it being the only victory scored by Rhode Island on that disastrous day. Miss “Chin” Lee received a bad floor burn in this game which necessitated her leaving school for several weeks, and her absence during the playoff of the class league was keenly felt by the Junior team. For the first time, this year strict training rules were inaugurated, and a train- ing table was established. In the course of the season, the team was more or less seriously incapacitated by the loss of two of the players, who were suspended for the breaking of training rules. Prospects for next year are bright, although the Captain, Miss Martha Humes, and Miss Rosalind Mokray are to graduate this year. In the spring, the co-eds turned to hiking with vim, and baseball was played by the great majority. A class tournament is to be held in baseball as in other sports, no outside teams having been placed on the schedule as yet. Ninety-four Girls Basketball Team Miss Martha Humes Captain Under the leadership of Miss Humes the girls’ basketball team enjoyed an u nusually successful season. Most of the work is intra-mural, but relations with Connecticut were renewed again this year after a lapse. The games resulted in the usual victories for the Rhode Island co-eds.

Carter The Student Band, organized in the Fall of 1928 by S. Edward Sulkin, has most faithfully played at all athletic contests, even accompanying the teams to Connecticut and Brown for the contests there. This unit, arrayed in the uniforms they provided for themselves, has added very much to the pep and gusto char- acteristic of the games during the past year. For the basketball games in the new gymnasium a twelve-piece orchestra was formed, which played the latest popular numbers as well as the college songs. Long may the spirit of the members of the Student Band continue to fire our student body with enthusiasm and keep up the true Rhode Island spirit at all games !

A resume of the recent history of the Battalion at Rhode Island State College shows that much progress has been made in the Military Department. The College has attained distinguished rank three times ; then the War Department discontinued both the rank of distinguished college and the annual inspection by officers of the Washington department. Under the new system Corps Area officers inspect all the units in their respective areas, instead of the few picked colleges of the old system. In 1925, the Battalion was under the command of Student Major Ralph Shaw ; in 1926, under Student Major William Marcaccio; and in 1927, under Student Major H. Vernon Van Valkenburg. Much credit for the progress of the Battalion is due to these three men as the R. O. T. C. received distinguished rank under all three. In 1928, under the new system, Student Major Wilhelm Johnson took com- mand, and the unit showed such marked ability that it was highly praised by the Corps Area Inspectors. This year the unit has increased in size to four companies and , with Student Major Lawrence McClusky at the helm, promises to surpass those of previous years. The Battalion has a large group of exceptionally able student officers to complete its complement. As a part of this year’s work the students have adopted regulation garrison belts, and highly polished brass buttons. The band, the best ever produced here, has new trappings of white web material, with leggings to match. This equipment has done much to make the “snappy” appearance upon which the unit has been complimented this year. For the past two years the unit has paraded in Providence on Armistice Day, and both times was praised highly by the officers of the State for their impressive showing. The greatest credit, however, is due to the regular Army Commandants in charge. Their unflagging effort, and indomitable enthusiasm has aroused an unprecedented interest on the part of the students. To them the College owes a debt. One Hundred Thirty-eight 1TATE Back Row: f. lee, n. tarbox, e. long, a. glenn, j. o’hare.

Thompson William O’Brien Thomas Inza Walter Moran One Hundred Sixty-four rjrf gTATE meu3ES l| Alpha Tan Gamma As this issue of the Grist goes to press, a new fraternity has its birth. Under the leadership of several earnest leaders of the dormitory group, several men recently petitioned the college committee on fraternities for a charter. Simultaneously, they requested the recognition of the Polygon, which group has the privilege of passing on the desirability of any such group which might desire admission. The matter was carefully considered by them and it was unanimously agreed by members of all the fraternities that the petitioning group be recognized and be extended the right of membership in the Polygon. Upon this action, the college committee on fraternities approved the petition, and the group of Alpha Tau Gamma came into official being, announcing their birth as a lusty youngster by a banquet on the evening of May sixth. Their present plans are well developed, negotiations for a house being already under way. The new fraternity expects to start the new year in their own home, with their organization complete in every respect, ready to “rush” pledgees next year, in friendly competi- tion with their older Greek brethren. The celerity and efficiency with which the business of organizing the new group has been carried out speaks well for their leadership, and since only two of their men are graduating with the present class, they should be able to start next Fall on a par, as far as membership strength is concerned, with the other fraternities. The officers of the present Grist take particular pleasure in welcoming the new fraternity to our midst, are pleased to be the editors of the first annual to record its admittance to the Polygon. The organization of the new society is perhaps, the outgrowth of the recent activity among the fraternities in general, four local social organizations having become affiliated with national groups within the past two years, two of them in the past two or three months. Perhaps this new development is the beginning of a new phase in the cycle of fraternity growth, and the next year may see more activity in formation and nationalization. One Hundred Sixty-five Fraternities at RhocJy The administration of Rhode Island State College definitely favors the frater- nity system, and provides all possible assistance to the Greek organizations. The result is a growth of the student brotherhoods which has kept pace with the develop- ment of the College. East Hall, the only large men’s dormitory, was built in 1909, when the total registration was about 200. To-day the registration is about 550, yet no new dormitories have been built by the College. Two small houses have been leased, it is true, but the ten fraternity houses and two sorority houses provide most of the housing for the increased enrollment. Fraternity progress has been marked by cycles of activity. In the period 1008-1011 Rho Iota Kappa. Theta Chi (originally Sigma Delta), Beta Phi. Delta Alpha Psi. and lambda Chi Alpha (originally Gamma Delta Sigma) came into existence. Then there was an unbroken period until Zeta Pi Alpha (now S. A. E.) and the Campus Club (now Phi Beta ( ' hi) were formed in 1020. Beta Nu Epsilon (now Alpha Epsilon Pi), Delta Sigma Epsilon (now Phi Mu Delta) and Phi Sigma raised their banners in the period 1922 to 1925. Meanwhile the co-eds had been feeling the Greek letter urge. Sigma Tau Delta (now Sigma Kappa) was organized in 1914. Chi Omega began life as Omicron Alpha Alpha in 1918. Theta Delta Omicron blossomed forth in 1924 and became Delta Zeta last year. A flurry of fraternity activity is again present. Last year four groups went national, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Phi Mu Delta, and Delta Zeta. Just as the Grist goes to press Alpha Tau Gamma has petitioned the College for a charter, and has been approved by the Polygon. Other signs of fraternity activity are made evident by the intention of three fraternities to build new houses in the near future. The innovation of boarding in the house inaugurated by Theta Chi is being considered by other houses and may be adopted by some groups next year. The inter fraternity organization. The Polygon, and its feminine counterpart, The Panhellenic Association, have contributed greatly to the promotion of harmony amongst the groups. One of the important matters decided by the Polygon is the code of rushing rules. Whether next year will witness the formation of more fraternal groups, or whether the present activity will die down for a few years is a question with no answer. It is one of those uncertainties which add zest to life.
