Within a few weeks this group will take leave of the Alma Mater which it has grown to love, and it will go out into the world buoyed by the pleasant memories of four years of college life. Within the covers of the thirty-sixth volume of The Grist we have attempted to portray a cross-section of student life as it exists in Kingston. It is our earnest hope that this book remains with you always to serve as a reminder of the happy days of your youth. The 1936 Grist Board TH£ GFSIST EXECUTIVE STAFF Benton H.

Without drastic effort one sat in the lap of luxury and ease. Your four years have found you cognizant of a different system. Instead of an utter disregard for the state of affairs, the glory of the difficult has reinforced you so that instead of smiling with a shallow grin at that which lies before you, you stand ready to face a world that challenges your strength of heart and earnestness of purpose. Has history ever been more notably in the making than during these last four years? Were college students ever afforded such opportunities to be so closely in touch with affairs of town, state, and nation? Were problems — economic, social and political — needing solution, ever so plainly laid before us? In the freshness and vigor of youth, that is unafraid and ready for the difficult, lies the rolling back of the clouds and the introduction of a new era in which the aim and goal is not the amassing of individual fortunes but the finding, through useful life to mankind, the gem of human happiness. CLASS ADVISER Donald Elmer Stearns, b.s., s.b., m.s. Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering Alfred University, Class of 1927 Theta Kappa Nu TABLE OF CONTENTS THE COLLEGE FACULTY SENIORS ATHLETICS FRATERNITIES SORORITIES FEATURES ORGANIZATIONS ADVERTISEMENTS HISTORY OF RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE and a room for $5.00 a year. 1 890 ), the name of the school was changed to the Rhode Island College of Agriculture and THE CRIST THE CRIST Dr. Edwards was President of the College for 24 years. During that time almost every one of these recommendations was followed out, many of them in a manner far exceeding the hopes of their sponsors. The first change came in 1909, when the name of the College was changed to Rhode Island State College. From any point of view this was a welcome change, the old name being cumbersome, narrow in scope, and unappeal- ing to the public. Although no law was ever enacted to force the College to maintain the Carnegie stand- ard, of its own volition the College has always fulfilled this condition, and is at present con- siderably above it. One of the hardest recommendations to comply with was that pertaining to the experiment station. Offi cials and public alike had come to look upon the other branches of the College as subordinate to the experiment station, and many years were required to smooth out the jealousies and frictions which arose between the two groups. But Dr. Edwards lived to see both the Experiment Station and the Extension Service acting as highly important and useful branches of the College, and the whole organization co-operating in a smooth and harmonious manner. The College never did attempt to put evening schools into operation, because of the high expense; they did attempt a summer school in the early days, which failed, says Dr. Edwards, because of the poor condition of the roads. All the other recommendations of the commission were carried out enthusiastically and efficiently. The Military Department was expanded and organized to the point where the last years of Dr. Edwards ' administration saw the College listed annually as a Distinguished College. A closer connection was sought and gained with the state educa- tional system, and co-operation with the high schools reached the point where only a very small percentage of students were from out of state high schools. The recommended building program went slowly but steadily forward with the completion of East Hall in 1909, Ranger in 1913, and Bliss Hall, Edwards Hall, and the Gymnasium in 1928. The Quadrangle was lighted in 1922, adding greatly " to the sightliness, convenience, and com- fort of us all,” and in 1928 the Alumni presented the College with a Memorial Gateway. Thus the President was able to say in his 1929 report: The College, with its fine shade-trees, its trim lawns, its impressive gateway, its nine stone buildings, efficient and dignified in line and form, its many sightly and attractive fraternity and sorority houses, has become a thing beautiful, not merely for situation and outlook over distant plains and hills toward the setting sun, but also in and for itself, and for its realization of the prophetic recommendations contained in the commission’s report. Especially, on a spring or summer evening, the green sward of Second President Kenyon L. Butterfield THE CRIST -17- the spacious campus, brilliantly illumi- nated by electric bulbs among the foliage of the trees; with glimpses on every side of massive shapes of stone broken by streams of light from a thousand win- dows, gives an effect of beauty and charm not unbecoming to an older seat of learning. President Edwards died April 10, 1930. Acting President Barlow said of him: " The passing of this veteran leader re- moved from the field of education in our state one who had won for himself an exalted position by reason of his ripe scholarship, his fearless leadership, and singleminded devotion to the great task which was placed before him when he assumed charge of the college on July 1, 1909. . . . The college as we know it now is his accomplishment and his imperish- able monument.’ ' Dr. Edwards was buried in Fern wood Cemetery " upon the close of a beautiful spring day. " The arrival of Dr. Raymond G. Bressler, April 1, 193 1, as the fourth president of the College, was the start of another active and prosperous period. The first four years of his administration have seen a jump in registration from 645 to 1,096 students and from 52 to 106 faculty members. New roads have been built, the dining halls reorganized, a fine summer school operated, a new grading system intro- duced, and a placement service organized since Dr. Bressler’s arrival. Campus conditions in regard to heat and light have been improved, fields cleared for athletics, and a new fieldhouse and grandstand built. The most pronounced symbol of outward change, however, is the PWA building program. When it became known that the federal government would aid the states in their public works projects, the President campaigned tirelessly to convince the people of the College’s need for new buildings. His efforts were rewarded at election time by the approval of grants for the following projects: Home Economics Building Cafeteria Library and Administration Building Dairy Barn Women’s Dormitory Remodelled Auditorium Power Plant Fire Protection Thus the College is still growing — rapidly but soundly. Its place in the educational scheme of the state is assured; many more students apply every year for admission than the College can accommodate. Youthful enthusiasm and a growing dignity pervade the campus, and the South County hilltop which hundreds of years ago was pointed out as a beautiful spot for a unive rsity is today the setting of a beautiful and useful seat of learning. Third President Howard L. Edwards 1906-1930 THE CRIST THE COLLEGE P. W. A. BUILDING PROGRAM THE CRIST -19- THE CRIST NEW WOMEN’S DORMITORY THE CRIST NEW LIBRARY BUILDING Last fall, on Monday, October 14, 1935, work was started on what promises to be the most beautiful building on the campus. This structure is the new $225,000 library and administration building. This building is to be constructed of granite to harmonize with the older buildings on the campus, and the shape will be that of a T. The building will be located directly behind Ranger Hal l, facing south. There will be entrances on each side of the building at the intersection of the base and at the top of the T. A new feature on the campus will be the graceful clock-tower surmounting the structure. The basement will contain a large storage room, locker rooms, the post office, a book reception room, and the registrar’s storage room. Part of the basement is to be left unex- cavatcd as a reserve for future needs. The main entrance to the building will open into a vestibule facing a large stairway. On each side of the vestibule will be large seminar rooms. In the left corridor will be the offices of the president, vice-president, the dean of women, and their secretaries. The corridor to the other end of the building will lead to the offices of the dean of freshmen, the alumni publicity director, and a large study hall at the end. To the rear of the building, on the other side of the stairway, will be the two large working offices and the offices of the registrar and the bursar. At the extreme end will be located the new geology laboratory. The second floor of the new building will contain the library. At the top the stairway will enter a large reading room flanked by a collateral reading room and a periodical room on each side. The librarian’s office, the cataloguing room, and the bookstacks are to be located in the rear on the other side of the stairway. Due to the winter weather, little more than the excavating and foundation work could be accomplished up until this spring. As soon as the weather permitted, however, construction of the steel framework and the granite walls was begun. Now the structure is beginning to take on a definite shape and should be ready for occupancy next fall.

Keaney A.B., Bates College, 1911 Director of Athletics , Professor of Physical Education Head Coach of Football, Basketball and Baseball President New England College Conference THE CRIST COACH KEANEY’S RECORD AT RHODE ISLAND Showing a fine record of 378 victories and 12 ties in 600 contests, up until the 1936 basketball season, in which Rhode Island teams were under his direction. Coach Keaney is deserving of high praise for the manner in which he brought athletics in this institution to the greatest heights in its history. His record would be more impressive except for the results of his first five-year period in which he laid the foundation for brighter days. Since 1925, when he was relieved of part of his heavy program with the arrival of Fred Tootell, his won and lost average is .717. Ere many years pass, if one should judge by present trends, Keaney will have won 7 5 % of his contests. This would be remarkable considering average materials, hard schedules, and the diversification of his activities. TABULATION 0 189 78 Average 643 s One baseball game was tied in 1926 21 16 1 128 63 378 210 12 THE CRIST - 118 - 193 5 FOOTBALL SEASON THE CRIST SUMMARY OF 193 5 FOOTBALL SEASON TRACING a strenuous schedule with a small and light squad the 193 J football team came through with the creditable record of four wins, four losses, and one tie. Outstanding among the victories of the season was the 13-7 win over Brown. This game was the twenty-fourth of the series with the upstate institution, and the final gun brought great joy to the sizable group of Rhode Island partisans. As Captain John Mantenuto was awarded the first Brown football ever won by Rhode Island, a group of enthusiastic admirers lifted Coach Keaney upon their shoulders and carried him the length of the field in a never-to-be- forgotten demonstration of cheering, snake-dances, and band-music. In the first game Rhode Island showed defensive strength in holding the powerful Holy Cross team scoreless during the second and third periods, but went down 32-0. Four of the opponents’ scores resulted from Rhode Island fumbles. At Orono, Maine, Rhode Island lost a thrilling 7-0 game to Maine, whom we van- quished the two previous seasons. Bob Mudge’s seventy-yard return of a punt for a touchdown was disallowed. The Brown game followed. Here Rhody swept down the field following the kick-off to score and added another score in the second period. Brown scored on a group of lateral passes in the third period, but was held at bay the rest of the game. At Northeastern the following week, the team was greatly outweighed but scored on a pass in the first half. Victory was apparent, only to have the Huskies score in the last eighteen seconds of the game. Final score 6-6. Against Massachusetts State the team once more took the opening kick-off down the field for a touchdown. After the initial score, play was fairly even, only to have Rhode Island bog down for a short time, and the Baystaters advanced eighty yards in three downs during the third period, and kicked the point-aftcr-touchdown. Final score — Rhode Island 6, Massachusetts State 7. The Coast Guard Academy was subdued by a 13-7 score, and the following week Worcester Poly tech was defeated 23-6. On Homecoming Day, Rhode Island gained posses- sion for one year of the new trophy for the Connecticut series. As on two similar occasions, the team went for a touchdown in a few plays after the opening kick-off. In the final game of the season, against Providence at the new Hendricken Field, the Rams lost a hard fought battle to the Friars by a 1 3-0 score. The heavy up-state team scored early in the game, and Rhode Island came back splendidly in the second period, only to have time peter out with the ball on the P. C. two- yard line and three downs remaining. Again threatening in the third period, the team was set back by a questionable measurement for a first down, and from that point Providence scored. THE CRIST - 120- VARSITY FOOTBALL SQUAD THE CRIST Mantenuto makes a short gain through Holy Cross line HOLY CROSS 32, RHODE ISLAND 0 Facing a heavier and more experienced Holy Cross team in the opening game of the schedule at Fitton Field, Worcester, the team played well defensively and held the opposi- tion scoreless for two periods. At the very beginning Rhode Island fumbled deep in their own territory, and within a few plays Yablonski of the Crusaders drove over for the first touchdown. Shortly thereafter Holy Cross gained another touchdown after a sustained march of 83 yards. Late in the first period a punt was blocked, and Holy Cross gained possession. This time, however, Rhode Island held, only to once more be set at a disadvan- tage as the result of a feeble punt, and the opposition had 19 points before the initial During the second and third periods Rhode Island played well defensively, and Holy Cross never seriously threatened. In the fourth period continued replacements wore down the tired Rhody team, and two more touchdowns were rolled up. Never showing much offensively, Rhode Island played a courageous game against terrific odds. All players did their best, and the work of Jake Robcrtshaw as roving center was outstanding. THE GRIST - 122- Start of a reverse play against Maine MAINE 7, RHODE ISLAND 0 Rhode Island tried to make it three in a row against Maine, but did not get the necessary breaks. In the second quarter Mudge’s punt was blocked, and within a few plays Littlehale of Maine scored. In the third period Bob Mudge twisted and turned his way on a punt return to score after covering 79 yards; this was t he most spectacular play of the game. However, Rhode Island ' s hopes were given a severe jolt when the officials claimed a clipping infraction and the ball was put back on the Maine 29-yard line. The Rams were easily the better team on the field, showing much more in offensive and defensive gestures. The statistics revealed that Rhody gained more yardage by rushing and scored twice as many first downs. Outstanding for Rhode Island in the backfield were Bob Mudge and John Mantcnuto. Fred McCarthy and Louis D ' lorio showed up well in their line play. THE CRIST - 123 - Mudge scores the whining touchdown against Brown RHODE ISLAND 13, BROWN 7 After 23 years of trying to defeat the Bruin in football, Rhode Island finally came through in a brilliant game that will long live in the memory of the loyal looters who saw the contest. Before the game was three minutes old, Rhody scored as the result of a 94-vard march. Mantenuto took the opening kick-off and returned the ball past mid-field. After Mudge, Messina and Mantenuto alternated carrying to the 3 -yard line, Wright plunged over for the first score. On a fake placement and pass from Mantenuto to Messina the extra point was converted. Brown came back strong, led by Mike Greenberg, and narrowly missed scoring. Mid-way in the second period, the Rams put on a 56-yard scoring march which was featured by a beautiful pass to D’lorio and the final drive by Bob Mudge. Late in the third period Brown executed a beautiful lateral play and Elrod scored after a 6 5 -yard run. However, the Bears were held at bay for the remainder of the game. On several occasions Junior Keaney’s splendid punts, including a 5 0-vard boot that went out on the Brown 3 -yard line, kept the opposition deep in their own territory. Every man on the team played an inspired game, but most noticeable was Justin McCarthy, minus headgear, who played the best game of his college career. THE CRIST -124- RHODE ISLAND 6, NORTHEASTERN 6 Facing a heavier Northeastern team at Huntington Field in Brookline, the Rams were forced to fight every bit of the way, and made a wonderful showing against a potentially superior team. The Huskies appeared very impressive in the first twenty minutes of the encounter, but Rhode Island staged a surprise offensive to take the lead. Mantenuto shot a 20-yard pass to Messina that brought the ball to the Northeastern 15-yard line. In a deceptive play that found Fred McCarthy pulling out of the line from his guard position to pass, Lou D ' lorio snared the ball to score standing up. During the third period Rhode Island had several opportunities to score but did not have the necessary power to put the ball across through the line. With only seconds remaining. Northeastern heaved a long pass that was caught on the Rhody one-yard line, and a touchdown soon resulted. The entire gathering waited breathlessly as the Huskies attempted the conversion; a bad pass from center saved the day for the Rams. The team played a fine game against a heavier team to satisfy the large delegation of fans who made the trip. THE CRIST A split second after the hall was snapped MASSACHUSETTS STATE 7, RHODE ISLAND 6 Against Massachusetts State the team took the opening kick-off and marched for a score in a manner similar to that exhibited in the Brown game. Bob Mudge dove over after From then on the teams played an even game, with no serious scoring chances being evidenced. Massachusetts State presented a threat in the person of Stuart, who passed well. In the third period the Baystaters suddenly awoke and staged an 80-yard march for a touchdown, and then kicked the extra point for the winning margin. This march took only three plays, with Keonig carrying brilliantly for the score. Bob Mudge went out of the game when he was injured, and thereafter the Rams’ offensive was stopped.

THE CRIST -126- Mudge goes through for a good gain RHODE ISLAND 13, COAST GUARD ACADEMY 7 Starting his second stringers, Coach Keaney found his team in trouble soon after the opening whistle and was forced to rush in the reg ulars to stop the Cadets on the one-yard line. Play was even thereafter until Jack Land of the Coast Guards dashed off-tackle, without a hand being laid upon him, to score standing up from the 29-yard line. In the second period Rhody started rolling on a 5 5 -yard march which found Jack Casey going over for the initial score. The attempt for conversion failed and State still trailed the Cadets. Later in the period the Rams scored after a 66-yard march with Bob Mudge going over for a touchdown. This time the try for the point was good. The Coast Guards put on a splendid passing attack in the second half and kept the Rams on the defensive most of the time. THE CRIST - 127- Fred McCarthy gains on a guard reverse RHODE ISLAND 23, WORCESTER TECH 6 The Rams scored in the sixth play of the game against Worcester Tech; Bob Mudge carried the ball on this play. Soon after Tech came back strong and seriously threatened, but the line held for downs. In the second period Justin McCarthy tackled Germaine behind the goal line to score a safety and increase the lead to nine points. Worcester scored in the third period, culminating a 62-yard drive with Germaine as the scoring ace. Rhode Island once more demonstrated a good attack in the final period to The coach had an opportunity to clear the bench when the result of the game seemed sure.

As in three previous games, the team took the opening kick-off for a tally; Mudge was once more the scorer. In the second period Rhode Island had another excellent chance to score but muffed the opportunity as a result of a fumble. The teams battled on an even basis for the remainder of the half. Connecticut staged its most serious threat in the third period in taking the ball from its own 20-yard line to a point deep in Rhode Island territory where it surrendered on downs. Thereafter Rhody kept the game well under control and the eventual outcome was The team played only straight football, as all deceptive plays were being saved for the Providence game a week later. THE CRIST M udge evades, a Providence tackier and goes for a good gain PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 13, RHODE ISLAND 0 In the dedicatory game of the New Hendricken Field, Rhode Island fell before Providence College 13-0. The team fought hard, outscrapping the opposition, but as had been the case all season was greatly outweighed. Soar scored on a 12-yard off-tackle run early in the first period, but the team settled down and played on even terms with the Friar. Late in the second period the Rams had the ball on the P. C. 3-vard line with three downs to go, but the rally was cut short by the timekeeper’s watch. The quarterback’s judgment was hampered by the clock on the score- board which was far from accurate. Rhode Island played smartly in the third period and constantly threatened. On one occasion a march was halted by a discrepancy in a first-down measurement, and the morale dropped slightly. Taking advantage of this. Providence rushed over another score and decided the outcome convincingly. Those playing their last game for Rhode Island were: Captain Mantenuto, Justin McCarthy, Jim Souther, Louis D’lorio, Milt Cook, Stuart Reardon, Junior Keaney, Bob Lepper, and Jack Casey.

On this occasion. Jack Martin scored twenty points and surpassed Red Haire’s scoring record for a single season. RHODE ISLAND 54, NORTHEASTERN 41 In a sports carnival contest that was sponsored by the Boston Kiwanis Club at the Boston Arena, Rhode Island battled Northeastern on even terms for three quarters of the game.

It was not until three minutes from the end that the Rams were able to tic the score. Baskets by Messina, Keaney and Messina again provided the winning margin. This triumph marked the 11th consecutive over the Nutmeggers in the past six years. BROWN 47, RHODE ISLAND 45 This was even all of the way with Brown exhibiting their best basketball of the season to avenge for a defeat earlier in the season. With two minutes remaining, Rhode Island made a desperate try: Junior Keaney dropped a clean shot from three feet past mid-court; but Ed Tashjian’s attempt for the tying marker rolled out of the hoop.

Irving Folwartshny, sophomore weight thrower, gained fame and glory by breaking the world’s record and capturing the National A. A. U. title, which Rhode Island has won three years in a row. The relay four broke the college record by several seconds and placed in the I. C.-4A indoor meet. At the Trout games in Boston, the relay team defeated Maine and M. 1. T. in the good time of 3:3 0.2, which was second fastest of the evening. The " B” quartet also won their race. At the Millrose games in Madison Square Garden, New York, the team defeated Williams, Middlcbury, and Bowdoin in the mile and did their best time of the season, 3 :26.8. Amherst got the jump in the match race at the B. A. A. games and won a close race from Rhode Island’s hitherto undefeated quartet. At the National A. A. U. meet in New York, Folwartshny won first with his world’s record heave of 58 feet 1 1 2 inches; Dreycr, ’35, a graduate student, represented the college under the Union’s rules, and placed second with a throw of 57 feet 4 2 inches, and Bill Rowe got a fourth with 5 1 feet 7 inches. The relay team got into the finals, but the crowded track caused a stumble and Rhode Island finished out of the money. The team finished sixth in scoring. At the N. E. A. A. U. meet in Boston, Folwartshny won the 3 5 -lb. weight throw, Rowe was second and Leppcr third. Later, in an open handicap meet. Hank Drcyer uncorked a beautiful heave of 58 feet 4% inches to regain his world’s record. At the I. C.-4A meet in New York the relay team placed fifth. Folwartshny was unable to duplicate earlier performances and dropped to 54 feet in the weight throw to finish second; Bill Rowe placed fourth. On the same evening the freshmen placed fourth at the New England championship meet which was being held in Providence. In the 600 metre run Turner was third, Hibbitts tied for third in the high jump, and Singsen and Hammcrlund of Rhode Island tied for third in the pole vault.

For the sixth year in a row a strong University of Maine team was defeated in its annual visit to Kingston. Pratt Institute, Boston University, Upsala, and Connecticut were taken handily in ensuing encounters. The Brown game started off as an easy victory, and finished as a thriller when the Bruins came from behind to tie the score in their half of the seventh. In the next inning Jack Martin came through in an unusual play. With two men out and with a man on first, he hit a bounder to Dye, Brown pitcher, who garnered the ball and cautiously tossed the ball to first. To the surprise of everybody and to Dye’s chagrin, Jack was on first base. A barrage of base hits, and the fine pitching of Will d’Entremont saved the day for Rhode Island. Before a banner crowd, Rhode Island went ahead of Providence College and led at the beginning of the seventh by six to nothing. A series of mishaps and base hits scored four runs, and then a Providence player had his bat hit by a pitch as he turned away from it and it sailed over the heads of the drawn-in infield, to drive in the tieing runs. Rhody had two fine chances in subsequent innings, but could not capitalize, and Providence forced across the winning run in the twelfth inning. Against Holy Cross, the team played well but was handicapped by the lack of good pitching, d’Entremont having worked in two previous games, and went down 19-3. At the Decoration Day game in Providence, Rhode Island fell in a well played game 6-1. The annual game at Connecticut was rained out. Individuals who stood out during the season were: third baseman Gorman; short-stop Ed l ay; Ted Pascoe, at second; Applin, first base; Fisher, left; Martin, center; Mudge, right; d’Entremont, pitch; and Ryan, catch. Fay was leading batter with an average of .491.

Records were broken in eight events, and in one instance the breaker was a freshman. Bill Dolan, ’3 5, lowered the 100-yard dash time to 9.9, and the 220 time to 21.8 in the dual meet with Connecticut. Andrews chopped the half mile time down to 2 minutes 2.3 seconds; Art Hanley did the quarter in 49.6 seconds; Gerald Mullen made the 220 low hurdle record of 25 seconds flat; Jack Hunt became the New England Intercollegiate javelin champion and set a new college mark of 187 feet 3 inches; and Bill Rowe’s fine hammer heave of 173 feet 10 inches was the best in college competition throughout the nation last year. Tallman of the freshmen showed excellent form as he lowered the college record in the 120-yard high hurdles to 15.5. The most interesting dual meet was with Holy Cross at Kingston. The Crusaders had a powerful array of runners who broke three track records as they won all but one flat race, but Rhode Island’s strength in the hurdles, weights and field events gave a winning margin. The freshmen had a powerful squad which won all of its meets handily. Their record follows: Freshmen 108 Freshmen 78 Freshmen 79 Freshmen 11 7% Freshmen 109 Freshmen 100 54 Westerly High School ... 18 Brown, 1938 57 Providence Central High . 47 Connecticut, 1938 . . . 1754 Dean Academy 17 Nassau Collegiate . . . . 34 J4 The yearling record breakers were: Carl Morrill, 880-yard run, 2 minutes 2.9 seconds; Tallman, 120 high hurdles, 15.5 seconds; Dana Conley, 220 low hurdles, 25.8 seconds; Singsen, pole vault, 11 feet 7 54 inches; DeLuca, ja velin, 169 feet; Irving Folwartshny, 12-lb. shot, 49 feet, 10 54 inches; 16-lb. shot, 42 feet 8 inches; 12-lb. hammer, 189 feet 10 54 inches; 16-lb. hammer, 146 feet. With Bill Rowe considered as an excellent prospect to win both the discus and hammer events in the New Englands, Rhode Island was conceded a chance to take the title from the closely bunched field. Unfortunately, the team was forced to compete without his services as the result of an unfortunate accident a few days earlier.

THE CRIST CO-ED ATHLETICS Last fall, women’s athletics reached great heights at Rhode Island with the success of the field hockey team. This sport was begun here under the direction of Josephine Lees Russell and has steadily progressed until her team was the outstanding team in New England last year. The Rhode Island co-eds were undefeated in competition with teams in this area, but went down to defeat on a three game tour to Pennsylvania, the hot-bed of women’s field hockey ' .

Out of the nine games played, six were won by Rhode Island. On October nineteenth, the team went to Storrs to play Connecticut State College. In all previous matches, Connecticut had been victorious. The determination and fine team- work of Rhode Island was too much for the Connecticut girls, the final score being 5-1 in favor of Rhody. Emily Xavier, playing her first game for Rhode Island, scored four of the five goals. On October twenty-fifth, the team broke another record; New York University was defeated 4-1. The following day the team defeated the Providence Hockey Club. Due to the fact that two members of last year’s varsity played with the Providence team, the game was rather close. Relations were resumed with Pembroke this year. Although the Pembroke team played hard, Rhode Island defeated them easily. When Connecticut played a return game with Rhody, the same score resulted, 5-1. The next week, the Posse-Nissen team came to the college. On a cold, windy and rainy day, the physical culture school was defeated by one goal. In this close game, Milly Waters scored two of the three goals for Rhode Island. An undefeated team left for Philadelphia on November twenty-first to play three games. Here in the hockey center of the United States, the Rhode Island team was defeated in all three encounters. The girls were not ashamed of their defeats for the games were hard-fought and the opponents were superior in skill and experience. In the game with Drexel Institute, which was played in six inches of mud, Claire Wordell scored the only goal which was made by Rhode Island on the trip.
