THE GRIST PUBLISHED BY THE CLASS OF 1937 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE Foreword I N the to-morrows that will come, when ail our to-days will have become our yesterdays, there will he a time to turn backwards to the memories which constitute the only Paradise from which we cannot be exiled. Within the pages ol this, the thirty-seventh volume of the Grist, are captured and imprisoned the pictures and prose characteristic of one of the four years known to you as College! May this volume take its place with the Ram as 1937 has meant to the College and to you. the symbol of what GRIST BOARD ASSOCIATE STAFF Martha McCormick . . . Women ' s Editor Ralph Toole ....

VERNON, AND PROFESSOR GEORGE E. BROOKS. THEY HAVE WON OUR RESPECT AND ADMI- RATION BECAUSE OF THEIR UNTIRING EFFORTS IN THEIR PARTICULAR FIELDS AND THEIR ACTIVE INTEREST IN THE WELFARE OF THE STUDENTS. CLASS ADVISERS MESSAGE TO THE CLASS OF 1937: M Y connections with the Class of 1937 have been pleasurable and absorbing. Nothing will ever take the place of the innumerable coun- sels I have had with Jim Wright and many members ol Thirty-Seven during which times class, college, and personal problems were widely dis- cussed. It will he impossible lor me to forget the committee meetings Herm Anderson called for the brash Banquet; the excitement Johnny Messina underwent for the Soph Hop: the exhausting conferences with Len Hibbits for the biggest Prom Rhode Island State ever sponsored; the man; y lamps nl midnight ml Ralph look M.i n.inl Kopl.m liarlii Miller and ileen Kelley burned for the BEACON; the proud feeling I exf jerienced when the 1937 Sachems were tapped and when many members of the class were elected to Phi Kappa Phi; the exhilaration the spectacular football victory over Providence College caused and then the sinking realization that Jake Robertshaw. our ace Bobby Mudge. Jim Wright. Johnny Messina. I .ou I ) lorio. I led Ml ( orlliy. and l ew Allen would not pla lor Rhody again; the efforts Whiz Cowell and Elsie Brindle exerted to show Beaver that State could play hockey: the heavy basketball burden Grace O’Connor and Gert Cooper carried during the longest season the girls ever had: the honor Bill Rowe brought to the college when he placed in the Olympics; the hours we spent in the bleachers watching Ed Fay and Mel Entin put the baseball team in the limelight and watching Johnny Taylor and Bill Andrews break the tape for Rhody: the honor Helen Baclawski received when she was selected co-ed colonel at Mil Ball: the admiration Martha McCormick rightly deserved as student government president and debate leader; the hilarity and contusion George Potter, with Jerry Sullivan ' s aid. maintained holding his post as Mayor of Kingston; the serious plannings Joe Callaghan made lor Class Day: the time and effort Herm Anderson gave to make this Grist and the Senior Dance the best in years; and the thrill we all felt when we heard the results of the Senior elections and congratulated Jim Wright on his fourth year as president of the Class. Johnny Hannah and Rameses . . . Leo Hofingerand plays . . . Jim Eastwood and Senior Class rings . . . Angie 1 rovata and operettas . . . Betty Townend and scholarship awards . . . Betty Cashman and committee meetings and Grist photographs . . . Jack Casey and the Frosh Bible. . . . 1 hese all stand out as brighter touches of color in my four year picture of the Class of 1 hirty-Seven. Underlying these daubs of color is the substantial undertone of numerous other people and events, not a whit less permanent for all the brightness. In fact, it is this background that will insure the permanence and color of this composite memory painting. And I like to think of the whole picture, for half the fun in life comes from reminiscing upon the events which bring people together with other people. Josephine L.

But when it developed that he began his lecture every week with the same unexplained statement, they were at first amused, then puzzled, and then convinced of the truthfulness of his dictum. A modern philosopher has said " The most sacred responsibility of any man’s life is to endeavor to think well.” 1 hinking well is a more difficult process than reviewing one s likes and dislikes. It means facing facts, searching for causes and relationships, and maintaining an openminded- ness so that the other person s point of view can be appraised. The ability to think straight saves you about nine-tenths of the mistakes the other fellow makes. Members of the Class of 1937 , you have been at Rhode Island State for four years. If you leave with an improved ability to estimate values and solve problems, you have gained all that a college course can give you: if you have attained skill and fame in athletics, for instance, you have done more than half listen half-heartedly to the instructions ol a coach: if you have learned the fine art of living long associated with higher education, you have applied yourself to the task. Neither a college education nor any worthwhile by-product of it comes by passive acquiescence. You must participate if you would have the benefits of achievement. Each one of you has been in contact with the things at college that respond to your own nature. Now, at graduation. y jur view of Alma Mater is, to a great extent, a photograph of yourself. I hope it is a very happy like- ness and one that you will enjoy looking at from time to time. Good luck and bon voyage to you. Raymond G.

Coach Keaney’s and. in fact, the whole coaching staff’s athletic philosophy is admirably summed up in the statement which many have heard the head coach make from time to time. Any Rhode Island State athlete can tell of the occasions on which Keaney has stood up before his squad, whether it he one in foot- ball. basketball, or baseball, and cried in his inimitable manner. “Oh what fun it is to be the underdog and win. In that one forceful sentence is embodied the spirit of the college, not only in athletics but in all activities. To outsmart the opponent and overcome his brawn with a calculating brain has always been the style of play the head coach impressed on his men. He himself is noted for his baffling tactics in methods of attack and in making substitutions. A master of psychology. Keaney has saved many a game by timely substitutions when his starting players found it difficult to get under way. Thus it is that the replacements on State teams are as important as the first team and that all the players on the teams must be in excellent physical con- dition ready to play at any time. The Rams are invariably in better condition than their opponents and win many a game from stronger teams by wearing them down. The infectious spirit has spread to Coach Tootell s track forces: they thrive on it. win by it. and do not give up in discouragement when they lose by it. The track coach has an established reputation of refusing to pick easy opponents for his up and coming aggregation of runners, jumpers, and weight-men. He too feels that it is far better to lose a closely fought battle with a strong opponent than it is to win easily from a weaker one. The surprising fact is that the track teams are beginning to win over these apparently superior teams. In fact, outstanding examples of how Rhode Island has overcome the odds to win are in evidence in all the spor ts of the year. Late dashes in football, last minute scoring rallies in basketball, daring base stealing in baseball, and heroic finishing sprints in track have given the Ram teams many a victory. As far as actual numerical results are concerned, Rhode Island has had one of its most successful years. Counting last year’s baseball and track seasons. Rhode Island has won 43 of its 60 contests in football, basketball, baseball, track, cross country, and indoor track. State is proudly able to boast of two Olympic representatives, a New England championship cross country team, an all-around championship basketball team, a record breaking relay team, and victories over Providence College in football, basketball, and baseball. The Providence College victories are noteworthy feathers in Rhode Island ' s cap. for they break a long string of defeats by the neighboring college. Such then is the Keaney system which has met with such great success, espe- cially this year. To outsmart stronger teams, to wear them down with trained stamina, to derive the greatest possible advantages from an opening: these are the cardinal principles of the type of athletics taught to Rhode Island State College students. - 147- ilie THE R.

P rovidence College, in tbe final game. The triumph, the first over Providence College in all football games ever played between the two institutions, was easily the outstanding feat of the season and nullified to a great extent the crushing defeat that Connecticut State handed the Rams. Thirteen men saw action in this game against the P. C. team which was good enough to hold the great Holy Cross eleven to three touchdowns and score one them- selves. Seven of the Rams. — Lou D’lorio. Fred McCarthy. Jake Robertshaw. Norman Gesick. Jim Wright. Bob Mudge, and Jack Messina, played their last football game for State. The other six who plaved. namely. AI Pullano, AI Medici. Jim Magee. Bob Albanese, Bob Eliot, and Bob Fitch, were all sophomores. All told, Rhode Island played a long and difficult season after getting off to a very early start on September 18 with an impressive 32-0 win over American International. Following a successful trip to Orono. Maine, where Maine University was beaten, the team lost to Brown in a game which saw Rhody’s hopes soar high and then crash to the ground. It looked for a while as if our team would repeat the classic 1933 victory over the Bruins. Individual honors were monopolized to a great extent by Bob Mudge. outstand- ing back field man for the last three years. Mudge gained repeated recognition for his spectacular broken field running and fighting spirit in playing under the physical handicap of a weakened lung. The success of the team as a whole, however, was due to the fine spirit of teamwork shown by the entire squad. The aggressiveness of the line and the proper carrying out of assignments by all of the men were prime factors in the successful functioning of the team. Winning more games than it lost and with its first Providence College scalp, the football team can certainly be considered to have had a successful season. — ilie grisi RHODE ISLAND 32. AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL 0 Tlie opening game served merely as a testing laboratory For Keaney to try out his different candidates and find combinations which would prove effective. Mudge was ihe outstanding man of the game. RHODE ISLAND 7. MAINE 0 For the third successive year. Rhode Island defeated a strong Maine team by the thin margin of a single touchdown. In 1934, it was Mantenuto’s famous 100 yard run and in 1933. Reardon s last minute pass to Bernie Muliin which gave the Rams their two previous victories. This year, as in 34. the visiting R. I. team scored early and then protected its lead with an outstanding defense. The team did not stagnate offensively, though, after Albanese had made the first and las t touchdown of the game in the opening quarter. All throughout, the smoothly running backfield of Mudge. Messina, Albanese. and Wright made frequent attacks into Maine territory only to be turned back near the goal line on each attempt. With the middle of the line well taken care of both offensively and defensively by Robertshaw, McCarthy. Allen, DiPetrillo. and PuIIano. the low score was a result only of the stubborn fight- ing spirit of the opponents. At no time did Jim Wright at quarterback deem it necessary to call for a pass hecause of the success of the backfield quartet’s running attack. The opponents, too. showed potentialities of a strong running game but the three Rhode Island ends who saw action. D’lorio. Gesick. and Rinoski, stopped many a sweeping end run staged by Maine to keep the situation well in hand. -133- iU £risd - BROWN 7. RHODE ISLAND 6 The saddest game of the year, in the eyes of State followers, was the annual contest with the Brown Bear. After a score by Mudge early in the last quarter and an unsuccessful pass for the extra point, the fighting Rams gradually tired as a heavy Brown backfield crashed repeatedly through the center of the line and finally pushed over a score with hut five minutes to play before the game ended. Even then, the game looked like a tie. for the State side of the stadium burst into wild cheering when D Iorio broke through and blocked the attempted place kick after the touchdown. Joy was short-lived, however, as the referee called the ball back and penalized State a yard and a half for offside. A second placement by Hall of Brown sailed squarely over the crossbars and gave the Bruins the necessary point for victory. As in its first two games. Rhode Island was greatly aided by the fine broken field running of Mudge and the aggressiveness of the line. Brown was turned back four times from Rhode Island s 15 yard line as the forward wall tightened up and with- stood the Brown offensive. Cooperating with Mudge. the rest of the backfield all turned in good games. Playing his usual c apable game at quarterback, Jim Wright teamed up with Mudge on occasional tricky lateral pass plays which resulted in long gains. Messina and Albanese were effective in making line plunges throughout the With more luck on her side. Rhode Island would probably have triumphed in this spirited battle.

Jay Hart, captain of the opposing team and Bob Mudge performed in spectacular fashion to give the crowd of 4300 an exciting evening. In the opening period. Jim Wright scored a touchdown after Messina and Mudge had combined with him to advance the ball. Northeastern out- played the Rams from this point to the beginning of the last quarter, scoring two touchdowns and a field goal to give them 15 points. With her typical late rally tactics. Rhode Island valiantly tried to overcome the lead in the last period. Although another touchdown was made on an end run hy Mudge. the team was unable to score Lou D lorio did much to keep the heavy Northeasterners from scoring any more than 15 points and was constantly breaking up plays in the Huskies ' backfield. The others in the line, Rinoski. Doll. PuIIano. Robertshavv. Allen, and DePetrillo. did very well for their first attempt at playing under glaring floodlights. The game, as a whole, was typical of Northeastern-Rhode Island athletic con- tests in that it was fought aggressively by both sides and contained innumerable exciting plays. 3 jjiasiL ? - 150- i L c risi RHODE ISLAND 19. WORCESTER 0 Before a homecoming crowd of 2000. the Ram eleven put on a fine display of football in soundly defeating Worcester Tech. The game was scoreless for the first quarter, but Albanese crossed the goal line on a line plunge during the second quarter. The Tech learn saved having another touchdown made on them before the half by bringing Messina down on their own 8 yard line just as the half ended. D’lorio had thrown a lateral to Messina after intercepting a pass on State ' s 30 yard line and the latter had run as far as the 8 yard mark. In the second half. State dominated the play completely. The backfield co- operated well and advanced the ball in consecutive short gains. Although suffering from a sprained ankle. Bob Mudge was as fleet footed as ever and scored two touch- downs on 13 yard runs before the game ended. The system State seemed to be using in this game was to place the ball in a vulnerable position and then use an end run play with Mudge as the ball carrier. The line was at its best in this game and kept the Worcester team well in hand, even though two of its backfield were star players who had made reputations for themselves in previous games. Yawkey, one of the Tech stars, treated the alumni with an exhibition of long spiral punting. The ability of these two men. however, was not enough to prevent State from having things pretty much its own way. In fact, Mudge met the punting situation capably by reluming Yawkey ' s punts with some very good kicks of his own. - 160- iU grisi CONNECTICUT 33, RHODE ISLAND 0 Connecticut made up for it long period of defeats by Rhode Island and handed them one of the most overwhelming defeats that they have experienced in recent years. Not since 1928 had the Storrs team beaten the Rams. A 19-19 tie in 1933 was the nearest they came to it, but the score they made this year gave them ample revenge. In all justice to a team which completely outplayed us. it still might be said that Keaney ' s forces had an “off " day in every sense of the word. Mudge was handicapped by a painful boil on his neck and the rest of the team was slow in getting started and became confused as the game progressed with the inspired opposing team running all over the field. It is doubtful whether the final outcome would have been different even if Rhode Island had played well, for Connecticut had her best team of the decade and could not be stopped. The score, however, would probably have been different. " Scotty Thompson, star of the Nutmegger eleven, was the chief factor in their attack and eluded many a would-be Rhode Island tackier. The seven man line employed by Rhody failed to stop him and his backfield teammates. The Rams turned in a few good plays to redeem themselves somewhat. Bob Eliot got as far as the enemy’s seven yard line after intercepting a pass but the team was unable to score from that point. Toward the end of the game, the Rhode Islanders pulled themselves together enough to stage a threatening drive down the field. This was of no avail, however, for the game ended before a score could be made. Thus Connecticut gained possession of the silver trophy awarded to the winner of this annual event; a deter- mined Rhode Island team will make an attempt to regain it next year. - 161 - - 162- BASKETBALL - 163- risi 1936-1937 VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM Front Row: Morris Fabricant, Janies W right, John Messina, Edward Tashjian.

Rhode Island led throughout the entire game so that Coach Keaney was able to bench his starting live at the end of the third period and try out a number of substitutes. Outstanding subs were Dave Partington. John LaCastro, Leon Caprielian. and Ed Fay. Arnold, in an attempt to prevent defeat, tried to imitate Rhode Island s long passing, fast breaking attack but they lacked the speed and shiftiness necessary to outplay the Rams. Indication of R. I. s superiority was shown by the scores at various stages of the game; at the end of the first quarter, the score was 23-8. at half time. 35-18. and at the end of the third quarter. 58-24. STANDING OF FIRST 15 TEAMS IN NEW ENGLAND WORCESTER TECH 39. RHODE ISLAND 38 A rangy and close guarding Tech team brought our undefeated record to an end by the slim margin of one point in a rough game at Worcester. With but 15 seconds to play, the Rams were leading 38-35. Chet Jaworski was carefully dribbling the ball near the center of the court in an effort to stall until the game ended but Raslavsky. the star man of the Tech team, forced him to pass by crowding him towards center line. The pass was good but the receiver of the ball attempted a shot at the basket and missed. The ball bounded off the backboard into the hands of a Tech man who immediately threw it to Raslavsky. The latter ran down the floor to score and then on the ensuing tapoff scored again just before the gun went off to end the game. Thus, the game ended 39-38 for the first of Rhode Island s three defeats. HSSHL7 -167- iU grisi RHODE ISLAND 55. NORTHEASTERN 37 (First New England Conference victory) Every game with Northeastern is featured with the speed and aggressiveness of both sides. Although outplayed, this year’s Northeastern team. like previous ones from that school, proved themselves a formidable foe with their rough tactics and dangerous shooting. The Rams, lortunately. were well able to meet the situation with their usual speed. After Northeastern had scored the first two baskets, the R. I. team added points systematically to take over the lead for the rest of the game. Jaworski in scoring 20 points and Fabricant in playing a fine guarding game were the stars of the evening. Tlic game s interest was heightened by occasional threatened fist fights as the tempers of a few Northeastern players flared at times when bodily contact was exceptionally rough.

The striking fact was that 51 of the 72 points were scored in the Iasi half, and for the final 15 minutes State scored at the rate of three points per minute.

Auditorium in Providence. The Friars, with their usual confidence and skill had drawn away to a 22-11 lead before Rhode Island oriented herself. State then gradually closed the gap between the schools and dramatically tied the score at 31-31 on a long shol by Fabricanl just before the half ended. In the second half, the game was closely fought, Rhode Island maintaining a slight lead up until eight minutes were left to play. Partington. Wright. Jaworski. and Eliot then scored successive baskets to increase the l lm lr IT, lid lead. Ed Tashjian was the hero of the game with a high score of 22 points.

Three baskets by Tashjian and two foul shots by Fabricant made up the Rhode Island scoring in the extra session. The stubborn Boston team was hard to beat and forced Rhode Island to maintain a fast pace from beginning to end. The high scoring State trio of Jaworski.

It won four straight dual meets; it stretched the winning streak of Ram harrier teams to 22 consecutive dual meet victories in six years; it won the New Eng- land cross country crown; it finished sixth in the National Championships; its members received white sweaters. Space prohibits a detailed listing of further honors, but suffice it to say that the team which enabled Rhode Island to become New Eng- land champions for the first time justly deserved to win in all these contests. Every runner on the seven man team was as earnest and faithful a worker as Coach Tootell could possibly hope for. This fact, indeed, was the chief cause of success, for the nature of this torturous sport made it absolutely essential that the candidates reached the peak of physical condition by tiring steady training. Most prominent among Rhode Island’s sectional rivals, according to the sports- writers concensus of opinion, were Northeastern. New Hampshire. Connecticut, and Holy Cross. The first three teams were beaten by the Rams in dual competition and the highly touted Holy Cross team was only able to place fifth in the New England run which Rhode Island won. Thus it can he seen that the Rams left little doubt as to its superiority over the other local cross country teams. At the national classic. Rhode Island gave way to such outstanding teams as Michigan. Manhattan, and Cornell. By placing sixth, the Rams definitely proved that their team could rightfully be classed among the leaders of the country ' . Bill Eckhart. a stranger to distance running until trained by Tootell. proved himself the consistent Number I man of the team. Eckhart won three of the four dual meets, placed third in the New Englands. and fourteenth in the National title race. Captain Bill Andrews was equally as steady as Eckhart in his position in second place on the team and placed eighth in the large field ol runners in the New England meet. But it was the general all around balance of the team which gave it the winning scores. Alec Brown. Parks Toolin. George Lyons. Henry Tereschkow. and John McCormick, usually placing in that order, were never far behind the leaders. An excellent illustration of the part played by the last five men on the team was furnished in the Northeastern meet. The Boston team took the first two places but five R. I. men finished third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh to win the meet. With Eckhart improving every year and Andrews the only loss by graduation, a powerful team seems likely next fall. - 182- iu gris4 1936 VARSITY CROSS COUNTRY Front Kou : I lenry Tereshkow.

Coach Keaney found opportunity to try out 19 of his men. BROWN 4. RHODE ISLAND 2 Hailed as an outstanding athletic event in the spring sports season of the State, the Brown-Rhode Island game was featured by good play on holh sides. Brown made nine hits and Rhode Island eight but the Providence team bunched theirs much more effectively than the Rams. Gus Dolan drove in one of State’s runs with a long double. RHODE ISLAND 10. MAINE 2 Again Dolan aided the team in their defeat of Maine with his timely hitting, this time in the form of a home run which brought in three runs. The game was a “breather” for R. I. and many of the squad saw action. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 7, RHODE ISLAND 5 On the list of “heart-breaking " losses, the defeat of the Ram by P. C. stands high. For seven innings, Rhode Island held a 5-0 lead but in the eighth, the Friars launched one of their famed batting attacks to score 7 runs and win the game. RHODE ISLAND 3. WORCESTER TECH 0 A double play combination of Pascoe and Hollingsworth came to the fore in the Worcester game and saved the day for Rhode Island on two occasions. Mudge. Messina, and Fay were the hitting stars. RHODE ISLAND 8. CONNECTICUT 2 Led by Ted Pascoe who hit a home run. the team made a total of 14 hits in defeating Connecticut.

Until the unlucky inning, the team had played extremely well in holding the Crusaders to 2 runs. RHODE ISLAND 9. UPSULA 4 Martin and Mudge proved the mainstays of the team in defeating Upsula. It was a six run scoring spree in the sixth inning which provided the major part of the score. BOSTON UNIVERSITY 9. RHODE ISLAND 3 B. U. gained vengeance for its earlier defeat by State and hit our pitchers hard in evening up the series.

TUFTS 2 Tufts was beaten for the first time in ten years with this victory over the Jumbos. Getting but four hits from Wil d’Entremont. the Boston team was effectively stopped. Buzz Phelan played one of his best fielding games of the year and made several spe ta ill. ir at hes. RHODE ISLAND 10. NORTHEASTERN 9 So closely fought that it took 1 1 innings for R. I. to win. the return game with Northeastern was a nip and tuck affair all the way. d’Entremont’s stamina in a relief role coupled with the good hitting of the entire team finally decided the game. HOLY CROSS 5. RHODE ISLAND 2 For the second game in a row. d Entremont pitched a great ball game but the man power of the Crusaders was too great to be overcome. Daughters and Kelly, reputedly two of the best college players in the country, lived up to their names and put on a brilliant exhibition of fielding for Holy Cross. RHODE ISLAND 14. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 4 Batting the ball all over Hendrickson field, Rhode Island swamped their Provi- dence rivals in the second half of their home and home series. Two triples by Mudge and one each by Dolan and Hines were outstanding plays of the afternoon. Of the nine men who played, all but one were credited with at least one hit. Hines, in addition to his fine hitting, held the Friars down with a good performance on the mound. CONNECTICUT 4. RHODE ISLAND 0 This game was the feature of the annual alumni day at Kingston. Lewis, the Connecticut pitcher bested d’Entremont in an interesting pitching dual and allowed the Rams but three singles. As the second part of a home and home series, the contest proved to be one of the shortest ever staged on a Rhode Island playing field since it lasted only 72 minutes. -188- FROSH SPORTS ■■ ilie risi ■ ■ ' 1936 FRESHMAN FOOTBALL Jjga§iL7 — lie gi isi 1936-1937 FRESHMAN BASKETBALL ' 88 8848 - ilie grisi 1936 FRESHMAN CROSS COUNTRY SCORES 1 7 1937 FRESHMAN RELAY .jaaniL ? - 193- iu grisi 1936 FRESHMAN BASEBALL AND TRACK BASF.RALL - 194 — CO-ED SPORTS - 195- lie grisi — THE COACHING STAFF Jo Lees Russell and Vera Rock This year, under Josephine Lees Russell, women s athletics surpassed all previous records.

The group is composed of two representatives from each sorority and the officers of the association are determined by a fair system of rotation. Because the local organization is connected with the National Pan-Hellenic Association, it receives many of its instructions and ideas from the national head- quarters in New York. Probably the most important function of this body is the control of sorority rush- ing. Two years ago the association introduced, among other new rushing rules, second semester rushing for the the sororities. This system has met with success and will probably continue as a permanent policy. In addition to this. Pan-Hellenic Association encourages scholarship among women students by offering cash awards to the upperclass women of highest scholas- tic standing and by awarding a shield to the Freshman girl who receives the highest scholastic rating in the first semester of the Freshman year. In the spring of each year, the association sponsors an annual dance, the Pan- Hellenic Ball, which is one of the outstanding social events of the college. The organization also sponsors smaller social affairs, such as inter-sorority parties, which bring together the girls of all the sororities and foster friendly sorority relations. 1 9 ( L e grisi PAN HELLENIC ASSOCIATION front Row ; Elizabeth Townend.

President Bressler. seeing a possibility of rectifying this condition, suggested tbe formation of an organization for tbe purpose of bringing together these men. By June. 1 936. a group of five graduate students and Dr. Bressler became incorporated as the Graduate-Student Faculty Club of the Rhode Island State College. The University Club, as this organization is now known, serves the well-needed purpose of organizing and developing a fraternal relationship between all male members of the faculty and graduate students of this college.

An attempt has been made to classify these activities as follows; HONORARIES DEBATING DRAMATICS MUSIC GROUPS PUBLICATIONS TECHNICAL SOCIETIES DISCUSSION CLUBS -290- HONORARIES -291 - grisi — SACHEMS All responsibility for campus activities is now vested in the Sachems. This organization is the Senior honorary governing body empowered by both the administrative and student bodies to control the campus affairs. The organization was formed in 1931. when the former Student Council failed to function satisfactory, at the suggestion ol William Mokray and Daniel O’Connor. These alumni of the college proposed that a perma- nent Senior honorary governing society be founded at Rhode Island State College, membership to depend upon prominence in extra-curricula activ- ities. scholarship, and character. I heir plan was accepted and the first Sachems were inducted into office. The Sachems have tried to be unbiased in their opinions, and innum- erable decisions have been made by them during the past hall dozen years, which have raised campus activities to a higher and firmer standard. I he membership is limited to fifteen, the number of men and women being in proportion to the number of men and women in the entire class. A point system has been introduced lor measuring prominence in extra curri- cula affairs more accurately, and in this way it is hoped that the most deserv- ing seniors are elected to membership. Those elected are tapped late in their Junior year and serve until a new body is elected by themselves in the following May. At present the Sachems act as the Supreme Court of the college for the solution ol campus problems. Organizations or individuals, having diffi- culties or problems loo great for their own solution, may call for help from the Sachems. Class elections, budgets for dances and other social functions, the mayorality campaign, and the adoption of a standard school ring were some matters that came under their jurisdiction during the past year. -292- — iLe £r is 4 — 1937 SACHEMS -294- te grisi ALPHA ZETA Iff t f » I f f I , f f f I 1 m + + p M Ski jfS A % ' • Bl m OFFICERS James D.

Be it in here resolved that we, the said Alumni and active Players do hereby go on record as expressing our sincere appreciation of the efforts of our director. Mrs. Lucy I. Rawlings in promoting the drama at Rhode Island State College, and do hereby go on record wishing her a long and successful career as director of the Rhode Island State College Players. Lucy I. Rawlings The Players, now concluding their tenth successful season under Mrs. Rawlings, passed the above resolution in recognition of her fine work. In celebrating their anniversary the Players held a Shakespeare festival in April, producing ‘ Hamlet " , “Taming of The Shrew " and “Othello. " In the light of the fact that their first production in 1927 was Shakespeare s “Romeo and Juliet " , this was very fitting. Other outstanding plays on the repertoire of the players are: “Little Women " in 1928; " Trelawney of the Wells” and “Francesca Da Rimini” in 1929; “Poor Maddalena " , “Privy Council " , and an original " College Revue” in 1930; “The Rivals " and “Faust " in 1931: “Fanchon " and “Hamlet " in 1932: " The Three Musketeers " and ' “The Tale of Two Cities " in 1933; " Camille " and " Romeo and Juliet " again in 1934; “Othello " in 1935 as well as in 1936-1937.

Wiggin Rhode Island State College is particularly fortunate in having a staff of music instructors with great ability. Since Professor Lee C. McCauley came here three years ago. the musical organi .alions on the campus have taken an upward trend. The May Musical Festival has been inaugurated and was given for the second time this year. Such oratorios as ' The Messiah " by Handel and " The Elijah " by Mendelssohn have been sung at these festivals " The Men’s and Women’s Glee Clubs have com- bined to present light operas such as " The Mikado " . ' The Pirates of Penzance " , and " H. M. S. Pinafore " all by Gilbert and Sullivan. Much new equipment has been purchased to enable the organizations to have the best facilities. The orchestra has played many concerts and has accompanied the Gilbert and Sullivan productions with the aid of several members of the Providence Symphony Orchestra. The Men s and Women s Glee Clubs have sung concerts throughout the state and have participated in the annual contests of the New England Intercollegiate Cdee Club Association. Much credit for the solo work in these con- certs must be given to Miss Julia Stacey Gould who has aided the organizations The hand, under the leadership of Mr. Paul E. Wiggin. has attained a high place among the college bands in New England. It has played concerts in Edwards Hall and at various other places in the state. The success of the band is due to Mr. Wiggin who has wide experience in the organization and direction of hands in New England. -308- — Le grisi WOMEN S GLEE CLUB £ c ■r of the New England I, 1 7 - ilie risi — MEN ' S GLEE CLUB The Glee-Banjo Club was founded in 1892 and this organization is the oldest on the campus.

The editor-in-chief then selected the associate and general staff, which were somewhat smaller than usual. Each and every member, especially of the associate and general staff can be said to have worked faithfully and well. The editor-in-chief of the 1938 Grist was selected in March 1937. much earlier than usual. It is hoped that this procedure will he followed in the future, because it enables the outgoing editor to train the incoming one.
