Tfte 19 Qrist y EX IL I B R 1 3 | 4= ' Copyrighted by Hyman M. Cokin 1931 VOLUME XXXI Published by the SENIOR CLASS of RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE KINGSTON R. I. Dedication II 7TTH the publication of the 1931 Grist, a new era begins at Rhode Island State College. Its fates and destinies lie in the guiding hands of a new leader. It is to our President, Raymond G. Bressler, on whom the eyes of every loyal citizen of Rhode Island is turned expectantly, that the Class of 1931 respectfully dedicates this thirty-first annual issue of The Grist. The Faculty Adviser’s Message A PHILOSOPHY — not new, by the way, — which I recommend to you is as follows: Believe every- one good until they are proven bad, and then hope there may be a flaw in the testimony. This is not a good money-making scheme, and most people will tell you it isn’t practical. Granted. But it is a philosophy which builds character, gathers friends and discourages hatred. r I ’ ' HE members of the Class of 1931, after four happy years together, are leaving the cohesive influence of the college, each to follow his own chosen path. Except for occasional instances when class reun- ions are held, there will be no more opportunities to mingle with one another, discussing those things which tend to make a college life a happy one. The Grist is published with the purpose in mind of refreshing from time to time the fond memories of this short period. Only when present fresh memories have become dimmed and faded by passing time will the priceless value of this volume become apparent. Let us keep and treasure it, so that in three score years hence our aged fingers may turn the historic pages of our adolescent youth. Grist Board Hyman M. Cokin E ditor-in-Chief Lincoln A.

Ormiston Personals Editor June Miller Co-ed Editor The College Classes _ Athletics © ; Fraternities Sororities Organizations I Social Advertisements Campus Edwards Hall Constructed in nineteen hundred and twenty-eight, it was built to house the college library and auditorium. It is named in honor of Dr. Howard Edwards, late president of the college. Davis Hall On the “West End” of the campus it stands in all its gabled glory. The co-ed dormitory has been used for many purposes since its construction in 1893. East Hall The men’s dormitory and dining hall — as old as the college itself — stands as a sample of Romanesque architecture. Numerous are the riots that have taken place within these walls. Gymnasium Often known as Hammond Hall, in honor of Captain Hammond, commandant of the R. O. T. C. in 1928. Its ruler is Coach Frank W. Keaney, be it basketball, or social functions. Lippitt Hall Lippitt Hall is the home of the Business Adminis- tration Department. In it is also the co-ed gymnasium, the floor which has in days gone by housed assemblies, dances and athletic games. World War Memorial Behind the gates to the campus is set the stone monu- ment to those who left their studies to fight and sacri- fice their lives for their country. The tribute to these soldiers will stand as long as the college exists. The Grist Theme r_ p he theme for the 1931 grist has been taken from the “Stephen Hopkins Smith House” in Lincoln. Throughout its pages, colonial ideas per- vade. The rich brick red is the typical color used by printers of that period. The fireplace which appears in the lower corner of many of the pages is a duplicate of one found in the Smith house. The door is a side entrance to this house. The editors have tried to have a distinct colonial atmosphere throughout. This atmosphere is expressed even more in the sectional pages, where colonial scenes appear on old style paper. The blue and white cover is naturally a reminder of the college colors, while further connection between college and Grist is brought out in the aerial view on the inside back cover sheet. J The house carries with it a romantic story which Grist readers are sure to enjoy. The most striking legend, perhaps, is of the origin of the old mansion. Certainly not later than 1811, Stephen Hopkins Smith was in love with a girl who promised to marry him on one condition. The condition was that he should provide her with a finer house than any other woman in the county. Smith won fifty thousand dollars in the Louisiana Lottery, and used it, to the last penny, to build a suitable nest for his bird of fine plumage. He fashioned his house of granite from the ledge still to be seen across the fields from the mansion. Noble were the rooms, beautiful the architecture. He sent across the ocean for marble for the mantels. He hung the picture of his lady love in a golden frame upon the wall. No finer house existed in all the countryside. But, alas, Stephen Smith, the adoring lover, had spent all his money upon the mansion — and the lady of his heart promptly threw him over. J Many have often wondered what became of the lover. It is said that his sister indignantly cut the picture of the girl from its golden frame. Mr. Smith never lived in the mansion fashioned with such loving care} he went to live in a small house a short distance from the mansion. He loved flowers; there are always traditions of his love for them, and it is said that he planted in Quinsnicket Grove at least one specimen of each plant common to the flora of our State. He stocked the pond, that lies at the foot of the hills around it like a Scotch tarn, with goldfish, and perhaps lived out his gentle life happier with his goldfish pond, his garden and his woods, than he would have been with the heartless girl who jilted him. J Mr. Talbot tells that the front path, broad, rather roughly paved with large stones, was laid in a night by lantern-light by way of doing honor to a Governor expected to breakfast with the family then residing in the mansion, next morning. Another ver- sion is that it was laid in haste for a wedding. Rhode Island State College Corporation Walter E. Ranger Providence President , Commissioner of Education , ex-officio Harry R.

Washington County, Charlestown - 29 Greetings to the Class of 1931 To you has come the privilege of being the last class to go from our circle under the old order. A glorious quarter of a century has seen the institution transformed and recreated. Secure foundations have been laid in material facilities, scholastic standards, and public confidence for the new era which is now beginning. As you come back to us from year to year, you will see the new college grow upon the foundations so well laid by the great leader who has passed. As your faces are towards the new life that follows your college course, so the college looks forward with hope and joy to the future, so full of promise under the command of a new leader.

As Freshmen, we tasted in the first few weeks the flavor of college life, with the Freshman Informal as our “coming out” party. Later in the year, the Freshman Banquet took place, at which time the class celebrated in true collegiate style the toast to the Frosh year. In athletics, a hard fought football game with the Sophomores ended in a scoreless tie, proving that at least in fight and power we were not to be downed. The Freshman year is one which will be remembered as being only second to the Senior year in fond reminiscences and glory. The Sophomore year, although not as successful in football, when the Freshmen administered defeat with a 12-7 score, was, nevertheless, an interesting one. Its literary talent was brought forth in a large ten-page Ye Soph Beacon , which was not outdone except by our own Junior Beacon of the following year. The “Soph Hop,” the first major function of the class of ’31, was an affair which still lingers in the memories of many classmates. The second half of our college career was marked by another change in status. We became upperclassmen — Juniors. Introducing a new style in student apparel, the class adopted its official “Junior Blazer.” This year will be remembered by the activities of Junior Week. On May 9, a Thursday, the class celebrated its major college function, the Junior Prom. Dancing continued from nine in the evening to three in the morning to the tune of a famous recording orchestra. The next day, “Nancy Ann” was presented in Edwards Hall by Phi Delta, and Saturday was one of even more activity. Interscholastic Day, with its many visitors to the campus, was fol- lowed by open house dances. This week of continuous action was the out- standing week in college history for us. In April of that year the class experienced a loss which it shall always feel. At this time the state and country lost an educator who ranked high in educa- tional circles. Tribute was paid Dr. Edwards by his wide circle of friends. As the “dignified senior,” our class certainly is still hold- ing its own. On the last lap of its college life, everyone is looking forward to graduation — Commencement day, Class day and all other final activities. Then we part, and have only our memory and this very Grist itself to remind | us of our four years at Rhode Island State College. Oresto Acciaioli “Archie” PROVIDENCE, R. I.

Keaney President V ice-President Secretary Treasurer Faculty Adviser History of Class of 1932 The Freshman year for the class began with a bang. Victories were regis- tered over the Sophomores in both football and basketball. Caps were doffed one month earlier on those accounts. In its Soph year, it published something new in Beacons. The annual Soph Beacon was of a miniature type. It contained an article by Dr. Edwards on “Greasy Grinds,” written in a style and manner that only Dr. Edwards could write. The class election held in this year still is remembered . -t- as a notorious example of “racketeering,” ballot-box stuff- Jj ' -T ing, and other means adopted by extremely centralized and assinine cliques. Rijf| The class also staged a successful Junior Prom and Junior Week, thereby climaxing the social affairs it has held thatj were unquestionably “par excellence.” One more year remains for the class to make its con-1 tribution to Rhode Island a remembered one. It is the firsts class to be under the new administration an entire year. 73 " -=2l 74 15=“ Agostinelli, Armand Joseph Allen, Florence Roberta Allen, Prescott Howard Altieri, Joseph Carmine Andrews, George F.arl, Jr. Andrews, John Kenneth Anthony, Gertrude Alice Arbogast, Amy Georgiana Armstrong, Wilfred Stowe, Jr. Arnold, Elmer Thomas, Jr. Ashe, Regina Marylin Bardsley, Charles Henry Barnatowich, John Beaumont, George Wm., Jr. Bell, Andrew William, Jr. Bcllavia, Louis Jack BihldorfT, Carl Bingcr Blazar, Irving Bliss, Thomas Francis Blitz, Jules William Breault, Leon Conrad Brightman, Howard Scovil Brown, Linwood Tinkham Brydcn, Harry Leonard Buckley, Robert Raymond Burt, Doris Augusta Caldaronc, Albert Anthony Callaghan, Bernice Mary Campopiano, Allie Caprio, Domcnick William Capwell, Russell Irving Carey, Arthur Frederick Carlotti, Albert Carlson, Sigrid Charlotte Carr, James Lambert Carr, Matthew James Castiglione, Caesar Paul Chaput, Lillian Frances Clark, Hilda Mac Coduri, Antoinette Barbara Bus.

Freeman President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Faculty A dviser Hist ory of the Sophomore Class During September of 1929, the class of 1933 began its college career, and its struggle for honor and glory. Its first affair was the annual Frosh- Soph football game, which was of particular interest because we were the victors. Our Frosh team was undefeated in basketball. The Frosh Beacon was published in March and was highly lauded by its readers. The next year, its Soph Beacon was published with equal success. In April, the class realized its first great loss by the death of Dr. Edwards, a man dear to every heart, and an ideal example to all. The Soph Hop, our first great social event, was one which drew considerable comment for its splendor and pleasure. Our success we attribute a great deal to the help of our faculty adviser and friend, Captain Freeman. ■■4 79 F " Class of 193 3 Adimari, Frank Joseph Allen, Kenneth Gould Andrews, George, Jr. Andrews, Harold Oakley Arnold, Arthur Perry Aspinwall, Marjorie Mildred Bailey, Sue Thurston Bampton, Norman Barber, Anna Elizabeth Bardsley, Lyman Russell Barrows, Ruth Louise Bastolla, Edward Joseph Beard, Virginia Burns Beaudoin, Bernard Laurice Bcssc, Man- Elizabeth Bliss, Frederick William Boyden, Helen Bradshaw, John Arthur Brady, John Francis, Jr. Briggs, Henry Frederick Briggs, Nathalie Elaine Brosofsky, Aaron Brown, Frank Amos Bryce, Margaret Burton Burke, William Burns, Eloise Anne Camardo, Anthony Capuano, Edward Castellucci, Joseph Catanzaro, Philip Joseph Chapman, Esther Naomi Chcnette, John Richard Clancy, John Rhodes Clancy, Mary Ellen Coggeshall, Marion Franklin Cokin, Jacob Israel Collison, Curtis Lee Conklin, Henry Edward Course Science Bus.

Browning History of Class of 1934 We, the class of 1934, began our career at Rhode Island State College in September, 1930, and thereby started a series of records in scholarship, dramatics, The Beacon , band, and athletics that we hope to maintain through- out our four years at college. Our emotions have been rather suppressed by the merciless upperclassmen, but we have learned quickly the “way of the campus” by means of our Bibles. We look forward eagerly to our Sophomore year ( if only for the privileges of cutting campus and co-edding). Although our football team fought hard to attain vic- tory, we were surpassed by the heavier teams; however, the reverse is true in basketball — a good season with only one defeat. We tasted “the sweets of victory” in the tilt with the Aggie Frosh, and this was the crowning success of the year. As a class, we hope to prove to old Rhody that she may rightly feel proud of her Frosh, and that we intend to add to her glory by our own personal attainments! 85 4 86 Abajian, John Ahnberg, Ernest Albmonti, Mario Andrews, Grace Louise Annucci, John Barnett, Frank Ferdinand Bassing, Milton Leonard Bastolla, Edward Joseph Bates, George Albert Berson, Abe.

Ath- letics at Rhode Island State College have at all times been kept on a strictly amateur basis. It is known, and an accepted fact, that too much stress has never been placed on athletics at this college. Yet Rhode Island has always had exceptionally strong teams in comparison with other colleges of her size and standing. Although the major sports at Rhode Island are few, a large proportion of the student body participates in one form or another. Football, baseball, basketball, track and cross-country are the five major sports. Recently an attempt has been made to interest the students in boxing and wrestling. As the college continues to grow it may well be expected that athletics will continue to hold their proper place and continued popularity, at the same time retain- ing their well known and strict amateur standing. Rhode Island, located away from any large community where other attractions might divert the interest now centered on athletics and campus activities, will always be noted for its great student interest in sports and extra-curricula endeavors. • 95 " Fourth Row: L.

After three weeks of intensive drill under Coaches Keaney and Tootell, the team opened its season with the only school on the schedule which had less material. It was an auspicious debut for the “Blue Streak,” for besides drubbing their opponents 38 to 0, it also saw the entire football squad and coaches of Brown University pay us a new and unique tribute by coming down and watching Little Rhody in action. The week of the Brown game marked a new era in the chapter of sports, in that the feeling and spirit exhib- ited by our student body and faculty has never been , matched in the colorful history of our athletic teams. The feeling has at last come about that a Rhode Island team | can defeat Brown, and it will not be long before the Ram f will butt the Brown Bear into submission on the gridiron. ) 9l © The game itself was a revelation to many. They saw a determined Rhode Island team, after a momentary defensive lapse that allowed Brown to score in the second period, come back in the last half with a vicious offense that just failed to even the score, and a fighting defense that spiked every offensive thrust by the Bear. The team richly deserved the praise accorded them on their fine play. Going the following week to the lair of the “Stein Song” boys at Orono, Rhode Island deserved a victory by virtue of two well earned and taintless touchdowns, but was the victim of gross error in officiating that gave Maine a very spotted 13 to 12 score. After an open date allowing a week’s extra rest, the squad, now depleted to about 25 members, faced one of the hardest games on the schedule. Bates, Maine State Champions, defeated only by Dartmouth, invaded Kingston, determined to continue their brilliant record. But the offensive power of the “Blue Streak” could not be denied, and Rhody’s little warriors won a well earned 1+ to 0 victory. Our friendly and respected rivals from the Coast Guard Academy were next defeated by a 26 to 0 score. Rain turned the field into a quagmire that checked the Blue and White offense more than the sailors’ defense could. A newcomer to Rhode Island’s football schedule came, saw, and was conquered. Boston University, before one of the largest crowds to attend a game in Kingston, was defeated 14 to 0. This game was the most brilliant of the year. It was a game featured by the running attacks of both teams, but the defensive power of the blue -clad forward wall, always checked when danger threatened, and coupled with the speed and decep- tive ball handling of our backs, Boston University was decisively defeated by a much superior team. On home-coming day, our rival, Worcester Tech, was the victim of a hard-running, crashing offense, and an invulnerable defense, that together featured the best team- play and co-ordination ever witnessed at Student Field. It was a fitting climax to our home season; and one that -I 98 t- brought comments of praise and respect from all of our alumni and spec- tators that were at the game. The following week, in meeting a Connecticut Aggie team with a very poor record, Rhode Island, hampered by injuries, a rainy day, and slow field that checkmated its fast and deceptive offense, could not score on a courageous Aggie team that turned an almost sure victory into a scoreless tie. The squad, banqueted by President Barlow, well merited the praise accorded it. They faced many obstacles in the long season, and in both the games won and those lost, they created nothing but respect for the college which they so well represented. They played the game hard, fast, and clean. They made up what they lacked in size and ability by showing courage and determination that definitely placed the team as the best ever to have repre- sented Rhode Island. To Coach Keaney should go the lion’s share of the praise. He moulded out of little, a great deal. Faced with seemingly insurmountable difficulties, his effervescent personality became contagious, and it was his fire and dash that moulded together a fighting group of boys, the product showing the fine training it received by holding its temper under the hottest and most vicious fire of the gridiron.

This wonder team was very close at times to being Rhode Island’s all-time basketball team. Newport Naval opened the season by dropping a hard but easy game to an untried Rhody team. On December 1 6th, the first Alumni game to be played in the college’s history gave undergraduates a glimpse of former Rhode Island greats. Highlights of the season were many, with the Connecticut Aggies game at Storrs heading the field. This defeat pinned on the Nutmeggers was the first Rhody has administered to them on their own floor in 1 2 years. The Harvard Independents, a team of former college hoop stars now studying at Harvard, gave an exhibition of the cleanest and most sportsmanlike play- ing ever to be seen on the local court. Northeastern Uni- versity again went down to defeat in one of the hardest games of the year. This was their twelfth consecutive defeat at the hands of Rhody. FRESHMAN BASKETBALL A great Freshman team went through its season with one defeat in sixteen starts. The losing game fell to Paw- tucket High School, who were runners-up for the State Championship. The feature games were Northeastern, with its team of six-footers, and both the Connecticut and Brown games. •• 1 ioi T=- Back Row: J. Blitz, assistant manager; A. Denting, J. Tyler, P.

A good Amherst team fell before the Rams in the first meet at Kington, 75-60. Three places in both the broad-jump and the hammer-throw decided the meet in our favor. The following week Rhody lost a close decision to Brown in Providence, 68-67. Roy set a new college record in the half-mile, displacing the mark of Larry Dring, former Rhode Island captain. Our rivals, the Connecticut Aggies, were defeated 85-50. Chubbuck, star of the Nutmeggers, placed in seven events, while Cieurzo broke both the shot and discus records. At Worcester, in the Eastern Intercollegiates, Rhody held down sixth place, and on the following week at the New England Intercollegiates at Boston.

MINER © Cross Country The efforts of the harriers this year were not as successful as those of previous years. This may have been due to the fact that the season began with only one veteran in the line-up, Captain Miner. Five men were awarded with letters at the close of the season for their dili- gency. They were Captain Miner, Ernest Goodwin, Arthur Arnold, Richard Wood, and Manager Anhalt. Boxing and Wrestling This year a new sport has been adopted at Rhode Island State College. It is being coached by a Senior student, Daniel DiCenzo, who has had some experience in these arts. He says: “It may sound strange, but it is, nevertheless, true, that punishment helps to make boxing and wrestling the splendid sports that they arc. A man learns to restrain himself under trying circumstances, and, consequently, his self-possession in other walks of life becomes stronger, also. Boxing and wrestling create a feeling of well-being and self-confidence, and make for a better co-ordination of both physical and mental faculties. “Certainly they form mind and temper restraint, rather than the desire to “mix it” with anyone and everyone, for control is a primary requisite of any ring performer. They also promote good sportsmanship and fair dealing, and arc always a stimulus to clean living, as is any athletic sport. And so today we find the daily endorsement of an ever- increasing number of higher institutions of learning, whose officials have learned to assay the value of sports without prejudice, and their conse- quent adoption by leading universities, colleges, and schools. They realize that the wholesomeness of the individual is but a reflection of the outer or physical man. “I sincerely hope that in the future these two fine sports will be added on the list of athletic activities at Rhode Island State College.” -=lj io 4 fc " MRS. KEANEY Co-ed Athletics The interclass tennis tournament started almost immediately after regis- tration in the fall. All of the class matches were run off, but the semi-finals and finals to determine the co-ed champion will not be finished until after this goes to print. A number of outstanding embryonic Helen Willses made their appear- ance, and in many cases the finals were very exciting. This was especially true of the Senior, Sophomore and Freshman classes. Genevieve Fogarty took the honors in the Senior class by defeating Ruth Goff by a rather close margin. Natalie Dunn easily overcame all opposition in the Junior class, and Grace Leslie won her title after displaying unusually good tennis. Char- lotte Waters took the honors for the yearlings by defeating her running mate, Marion Bishop. Hockey came next, with the usual number of barked shins and banged-up fingers. The Seniors and Juniors com- bined together to form one team, while both Sophomore and Freshman classes had enough players for a complete team. The class games resulted in a three-cornered tie, each team having lost one game and won the other. As a result of these games, the W. A. A. chose the following Senior members of the Honorary Varsity Team: Center halfback Mary Chase Right halfback Muriel Fletcher Center Genevieve Fogarty Right wing Grace Brightman Right inside Virginia May • 105 Il=- Co-ed Basketball Only one Varsity basketball game was played. This was with Pembroke and was played March 21. Other games will probably be scheduled with Connecticut and possibly other teams of equal caliber next year. The line-up was: Genevieve Fogarty and Grace Brightman, forwards; Mary Chase, center; Marion Bishop, side center; and Virginia Lovejoy and F.loisc Burns, guards. Practicallv all of these girls have been Varsity players before, the Misses Brightman, Fogarty, Mav and Burns having already had one season in Varsity work, while this will be Miss Chase ' s fourth season as a member of the Varsity. Among the other classes other than the Senior class are many players who will undoubtedly see Varsity action in the future. Among these are the Misses Stene, Waters, Dixon, Drury and Leslie. The results of the tennis tournament will be news for the next Grist! Credit is due Muriel Fletcher for her handling of the business end of basketball, as well as her handling of the affairs of the W. A. A. as its President. -4 io6J=- Due to the fact that Mrs. Keaney has found several baseball enthusiasts among those girls registered in physical training, the reorganization of co-ed baseball is under way. Due to the fact that May Day activities require a great deal of time in the spring, this sport has been inactive for the last two years. It is hoped that the co-eds will take advantage of the sport, and nego- tiations are now under way for a game, or possibly two games, with the Pembroke team. Lippitt Hall offers an excellent place for indoor practice, and after the men cease their practices on the quadrangle and go down to the athletic field, this offers an ideal out-of-doors location. Roomers in East and Davis Halls, beware of your windows! Co-ed RiHe Team The co-eds, not to be outdone by the men, decided to learn the manly art of rifle shooting, and consequently the co-ed rifle team came into being. This organization is a part of the Rhode Island Rifle Association, and all the members qualify as members of the National Rifle Association. Only two matches were scheduled this year, because of the short time involved and the difficulties encountered when a place to practice was sought for. With a portable target set up in Lippitt, and bi-weekly practices, the co-eds have made an excellent start, and it is hoped that conditions will be better so that more matches may be re- scheduled next year. The officers were elected by all the co-eds who c expressed an interest in shooting, and are: Mary Chase, captain, and Genevieve Fogarty, manager. Members of the staff of the R. O. T. C. unit supervise and instruct at the practices. •=il 1 07 If=- Fourth Row: V. Christenson, D. Davidson, R. Cole, E. Coombs. Third Row: H. Lewis, L. Russell, R. Staples, P. Allen. Second Row: H.

At the convention, various rules and problems are discussed, and the delegates bring back to the local chapter a report of what other college chapters are doing. The organization is an impartial group, representative of all classes, and strictly democratic, administering its rules justly and fairly without the intervention of faculty influence. -=lli 64 fc- The Lecture Association W.

This year the Lecture Association presented three excellent programs, and the unusually large attendance reflected more student interest and sup- port than has been evidenced for several years. The entertainments this year were of a cultural character which afforded a quite welcome change from those so commonly witnessed.

Holly -4 175 Historic Background By Professor Herman Churchill © M OST of us at Rhode Island State College are so intensely busy with the activities of our own little world of time and place, our immediate environment, that we find little time, or perhaps inclination, to ponder over the historic back- ground of our college community. And yet, southern Rhode Island is peculiarly rich in the treasures of a romantic and historic past, and, in my opinion, the student who spends four years or more in Kingston without making an earnest effort to become acquainted with some of the traditions of “South County,” and to visit many of the places of historic interest, misses a rare privilege. It will not be disputed, I think, that among the keenest pleasures of life are the pleasures of the imagination. As evi- dence, witness the many and varied expressions that have become stereotyped in our language: “pipe dreams,” “a brown study,” “unconscious cerebration,” “day dreams,” “your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions,” and the more familiar one of Tennyson, “In the spring the young man’s fancy,” etc. Even the scientifically trained and matter-of-fact engineer must exercise his imagination to vis- ualize the bridge that he is going to build or to make the city sky-scraper that he is going to erect fit harmoni- ously into the sky-line. In a similar way, I submit to you, it is a genuine feat of the imagination to visualize correctly a given scene or setting as it was fifty, a hundred, or two hundred years ago. Anach- ronisms inevitably creep in; but even so, to the student of history or literature, there is an irresist- ible appeal in the romantic past, and there is no ( Continued on Page 181) 176 h The L he staff of the 193 1 Grist wish to hereby acknowledge the help of the following people in producing this, the thirty- first volume of The Grist: Mr. John Haley, for suggestion of the Colonial Art theme.

In this spirit of romantic adven- ture, then, let us go back a hundred and fifty years, in an attempt to pic- ture southern Rhode Island as it was in the middle of the eighteenth cen- tury. This requires, so to speak, both a positive and a negative effort. First of all, negatively, with a meta- phorical wet sponge we must oblit- erate everything that has happened since, say, 1775. At one fell swoop we wipe from the map the Revolu- tionary War and its consequences, railroads, modern automobiles, tel- ephones, electric lights, paved roads, the college campus and buildings, and the villages of West Kingston, Wakefield, Peace Dale, and Narra- gansett Pier. “What is there left?” you say. That is the job of our posi- tive imagination, with the help of books, maps, town records, diaries, and official documents, to re-create ; and indeed, this is no small task. To begin with, we shall do well to remember that at the time of which we are speaking, the leading cities of the northern Atlantic sea- board were Boston, Newport, and New York, the relative importance of the latter two being indicated by the fact that, on one occasion, when the English government wished to send a letter to some one in New York, they wrote the address, (Continued on page 185) Jl New England Roast to Suit New England ' s Taste AUTOCRAT COFFEE THOROUGHLY MODERN EQUIPMENT FOR Cooking Water Heating Refrigeration Automatic i Clean Economical PROVIDENCE GAS CO.

Red Bank, New Jersey - 1 84 ii= - “Mr. , New York, near New- port.” Two hundred years ago the main thoroughfare connecting these cities extended through Rhode Island along the general route of the present Post Road. Originally this route had followed the Indian trail known as the Pequot Path, but after the accession of Queen Anne to the throne of England in 1702, a portion of it became known as the Queen’s Highway. Travelers from New York or Boston going to New- port, upon arriving at McSparran Hill, turned down the hill toward the east, near the Hannah Robinson rock, passed Dr. McSparran’s house, later known as the Glebe, across Narrow River, and Boston Neck, and then by the South Ferry over to Newport. The leading clergyman of south- Continental Rhode Island was Dr. McSparran, already referred to. His parish extended from Narragansett Bay to the Pawcatuck River, and from Point Judith to East Green- wich. He was of the Episcopal faith, and his church, known as the Old Narragansett Church, was situated west of the present Post Road near Pendar Zeke’s corner, in the vicin- ity of Hammond Hill, several miles from his residence. Other sects in considerable numbers in South County were the French Hugue- nots, at French town ; Quakers, with a church on Tower Hill and another at East Greenwich; Six-Principle Baptists, with a church near the present site of Wakefield; and Pres- byterians, with a church on Tower ( Continued on page 189) GIFTS PARTY FAVORS PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS I Jewelry - Watches - Leather - I College Stationery - Invita- I tions - Fountain Pens - Phi | Beta Kappa Keys TROPHIES for all events Students are always welcome to visit our four floors including the Art Galleries.

The oldest church in southern Rhode Island was Trinity Church of Newport, founded 1698, at the time of which we are speaking pre- sided over by the famous George Berkeley, Dean of Derry, Ireland, and subsequently Lord Bishop of Cloyne. In those days church affilia- tions and religious connections were vital influences in the daily lives of most members of the community. Around 1731, the leading hamlet of what is now South Kingstown was Tower Hill. Besides private residences, it could boast of two churches, a jail and court-house, a tavern, and various shops and stores. An outstanding event in the history of Tower Hill was the trial and exe- cution of one Carter for the murder, near the present Post Road, of a traveler by the name of Jackson, in the spring of 1751. Yt the time of the execution, Dr. McSparran deliv- ered one of his famous sermons. At the foot of Tower Hill, near Middle Bridge, and near the old Training Field, and not far from the site of the famous Jireh Bull house, burned just before the Great Swamp fight seventy-five years before, Carter was hanged in irons and the body left dangling in wind and rain until it dropped to the ground. About 1752, the court-house and jail at Tower Hill needing extensive repairs, by vote of the colonial assembly the seat of local govern- ment was moved to Little Rest, later known as Kingston.

If=- 30 (N. S.), 1675, stopped to rest on the site of the present village, and thus originated the name Little Rest , which continued to be the name of the village for many years. An interesting memorial of the name is the mile-stone, still to be seen near the old town pound on South Road south of Curtis Corners, bearing the rudely carved inscrip- tion, “Two miles to Little Rest.” If time and space permitted, it would be pleasant to picture the busy scenes enacted when court was in session in the building now known as the “Village Library.” With judges, lawyers, clients, jurymen, and visitors, in attendance on the sessions of the court, to be enter- tained over night and perhaps for several days, the Inn, and Joe Rey- nolds’ Tavern across the way, must have been the scene of social gather- ings hard to duplicate in these pro- saic days. One can imagine that much wit flowed and sparkled around the fire-place, and that much good liquor, likewise, flowed and sparkled across the bar. Doubtless, many hair-raising experiences were related, and many side-splitting jokes were perpetrated. With an imaginary bumper all around of Joe Reynolds’ choicest brew, let us draw the curtain on a typical social evening in eighteenth century Little Rest, remembering the modern bon mot , that since the students arrived, there has been “little rest” on King- ston Hill.
