PUBLISHED BY THE CLASS OF 193 8 RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE O NE more spring follows another winter, and one more spring brings with it commencement and another issue of The Grist. It is the earnest hope of the 1938 board that your book this year will become more than an illustrated catalog — will be kept as your personal history of the year just ended. For most of us, days crowded days, and events piled upon events, leaving behind a jumbled pot-pourri of worn programs, dog- eared snapshots, and hazy memories. We of the staff have attempted to sort over these relics and preserve in an orderly manner the memories of the events they served. Just as the events of the Rhode Island State College year linked together to form a connected drama, so also do these pages follow one upon the other, tied together by the same central theme. The setting is laid, the actors named, and the action depicted. Let us raise the curtain. Grist Board EXECUTIVE STAFF EMor-in-Chief . Business Manager .

MAN OF GOD LIBERAL COUNSELLOR SCHOLAR PHILANTHROPIST PHILOSOPHER CLASS ADVISER Professor George E. Brooks - 10- ' T ' HE story is told of a king who asked his wise men to tell him what he should know of human experience in order that he might be a good ruler. After a life devoted to study, the wise men replied that all they knew could be found in the statement: " Man is born; he lives; and he dies.” And only Religion can add the promise " ... to be born again.” As generations of men have gone through this cycle from birth to rebirth, they have left behind them memories which Time preserves. In such an experience, you and I have shared, even though days crowded upon each other so fast that tomorrows became yesterdays almost before we recognized them as todays. All too soon we rush on to the end — which is simply another beginning. The time has come for you to move on without me. Like one who stands on the shore while a crew takes a ship to sea, I bid you Godspeed. May you find your port of destiny wherever your life can be most useful. May you know the happiness of labor you enjoy, the satisfaction of work well done, and the sweetness of striving for those you love and who love you. May you be worthy of those with whom you live and die and of the God who can give you rebirth.

In this simple declaration is con- tained a multitude of scenes linked together in the greatest pageant of them all — the pageant that was the college in 1938. In the succeeding pages we have attempted to catch a bit of the artistry, a bit of the natural beauty that have blended to form the setting for our college life. On the following half-dozen pages are reproduced scenes about the campus. No photograph can com- pletely portray this setting — it can only stimulate memories of the campus as we knew it in 1938. the jtilt the (feist the jtist the jiilt the qiiit -25 - the jti5t Board of Regents Robert E.

Batchelder the yrilt TO THE CLASS OF 1938: S OMEHOW, sometime, somewhere right must conquer might; good, evil, or what is there to hope for? Not until millions have died to pre- serve the sanctity of the Golden Rule and to perpetuate the philosophy of the Sermon on the Mount will there again be a modicum of security and stability in the world. Our chosen, as well as self-appointed, leaders stand helplessly facing the cataclysm of disintegrating human values. The integrity of contracts, the inviolability of treaties, the protection of minority races, death for a principle — what has become of all these in the face of a corporate entity that can do no wrong! Personal respon- sibility to one’s creator is a factor of control for the individual; but what is there to control the state which has become the escape mechanism for berserks, mountebanks, and messianics! As an undergraduate in college, 1 wrote an essay on the Divine Right of Kings. My triumphant conclusion was that " might makes right” had long since passed from the ken of man. How barren in the face of the present! For the divine right of the king there has been substituted that of the state. The dictator has arrogated unto himself the power and abrogated its origin in divinity. It is easier to be a dictator than a collaborator, a big I than a big We; it is easier to drive your fellow human beings, if you hold the gun, than to lead them. But remember that the test of a real man is his ability to get things done willingly. I can make no better wish for you than that you may find the after- college world a place where you can practice the Golden Rule without fear or interference. Raymond G.

Sponsored by both the federal and the state governments, this service carries to Rhode Islanders unable to attend classes at the college, description and often demonstration of advances in agriculture and home economics. Lectures, demonstrations, radio programs, and pamphlets are sponsored for general information. Specific problems are taken up individually with residents of the state. -56- the jtllt THE EXPERIMENT STATION Front Rou : Smith, L.

This group, another state-federal project, conducts agricultural research, answer- ing many puzzling problems for the farmers of the state. Nor is their work limited just to the State of Rhode Island. National fame has accrued to the college because of the work done on that most common of cultivated plants, grass. Familiar to all is the checkerboard of experimental lawns that this project has developed on the Plains Farm. the jlilt THE OFFICE STAFF Worthy of inclusion in any complete record of the college year is this important section of the college personnel. Unsung and little noticed when all is well, these women make up the secretariat. But just let something go wrong, and they are loudly in demand. For to them goes most of the responsibility for the business routine of Rhode Island State College. - 58 - -59- the qlilt he stage is cold and empty without the characters. The pageant of the college in 1938 cast over twelve hundred actors. The more permanent of these people, almost a part of the set- ting, have been shown in the preceding section. In the pages to come is shown the more changeable cast — the students. All played varying roles. Some had only " bits,” while at the opposite extreme were those who enjoyed the full glare of the spotlights. But the story of 193 8 is not a simple narrative — like a pageant it was made up of many episodes, each with its heroes, heroines and villians. Every student has been a lead, in this sense — if no better than in the episode of his own life. For one-fifth of this group the final curtain has rung down, the last episode completed. The Seniors accordingly are specially featured, but everyone has a place in the ensuing pages. Seniors the jiilt THEY LEAD THE SENIORS President Dana H. Conley Vice-President Ruth S.

And Kingston is indeed cosmopolitan in this regard, even to the trailer colony nestled beside Bliss Hall. Fraternities, sororities, dorms, boarding houses, apartments, houses — all spell home to some one. In the section that follows may be seen some of these groups that lived together, at least from Monday morning to Saturday noon. These people saw each other in the cold light of dawn — and they still continued to live harmoniously throughout the college year. Nothing can be a finer commentary on student life at Rhode Island State College than this statement. On succeeding pages are depicted these groups and the places each have chosen to call home — the fraternities, sororities, and clubs. - 153 - the glut POLYGON MEMBERSHIP Prof. Joseph W.

Under the direct guidance of Miss Doris Cumming and Miss Anna Blackinton, these first-year women are largely self-sufficient in the routine handling of the problems of living together. The planned rotation and turnover of offices each quarter insures to all an opportunity for some responsibility. This feature and others similar to the organization of the Brick Dorm have succeeded in welding together a united group of yearling women. Judged by their enthusiastic work in the various activities of the college, the first year of a dorm exclusively for freshmen has been quite successful. And this in spite of the fact that these women are all either pledged or about to pledge some sorority and be completely scat- tered next year. - 196- the jtilt WOMEN COMMUTERS CLUB Not all of the students arc fortunate enough to live on campus. Some live close by; others prefer to commute daily from their homes. To be able to participate more fully in all activities, and to realize more of the spirit of college, the commuters have organized clubs. The women’s group has a fine room in the Home Economics Building, now in the process of being commodiously outfitted, in which they hold their regular business meetings. President .

Graduation the previous June took a heavy toll, and when the Rams faced Maine at Orono, there were but three veteran regulars in the lineup. Despite the inexperienced material and the scarcity of capable reserves, the Rams gave a good account of themselves throughout the season. Rhode Island won three games, tied one, and lost four, but its greatest margin of defeat was only ten points. Two of the losses were by a single touchdown, and the fourth was by a safety. Victories were registered over Tufts, Massachusetts State, and Providence College. The Rams closed their gridiron season in brilliant fashion when they turned back Providence College for the second year before a large night-game crowd at the Cranston Stadium. Against the Brown University Bears early in the season, the Rams played probably the qlilt their best game of the year, but were forced to give way before the superior man-power of the Bruins in the late stages of the game. Seven seniors played their last game against the Providence College Friars. This group included Tony DePetrillo, Harry Pattee, Al Cupello, Johnnie Christy, Walt Doll, Joe Rinoski, and Ray Barnes. The outstanding men for the Rams during the season were Captain Bob Albanese, Cliff Pace, Rene Duranlcau, and Tony DePetrillo. Several others flashed at different times, but this quartet played best over the course of the schedule. Albanese and Duranleau were the offensive mainstays in the backfield, while Pace and DePetrillo played a consistently sound game in the line. Albanese led the Ram scorers with four touchdowns while Pace was easily the best man on the defense. -205 - the jtidt SQUAD ROSTER the qtilt THE MENTOR CARRIES ON With a broad grin on his face, Coach Frank W. Keancy, Rhode Island’s veteran coach who is ending his eighteenth year of athletic service here, tells the baseball boys it is high time that practice was start- ing. The Mentor is the first man down to the field and the last one to leave. He’s one of the best coaches anywhere, so here’s to the Mentor. -207- • • • the gtfat • • « SEVEN SENIORS TURN OUT FOR SQUAD Robert Albanese Bob Albanese, although only a junior, captained the Ram footballers the past year. Albanese, a regular for two years, led the varsity in scoring with 24 points. He is a hard runner and a good defensive man. Joseph Rinoski The injury jinx was also unkind to Joe Rinoski. Rinoski, who started several games in his junior year, suffered a knee injury at the opening of the 1937 season that put him on the shelf for some time. However, Joe, a deadly tackier and a good offensive man, saw much service when he did return to the team. Albert Cupello A big, well-built fellow, A1 Cupello was hampered by injuries. He won a starting post against Brown University this fall and played a good game. He has seen consider- able action in a Rhode Island uniform in the last four years. John Christy A football guard, John Christy suffered knee injuries during his sophomore and senior years that kept him from service for a considerable length of time. He started his last game as a Ram against Providence College. -208- the jlilt Walter Doll Walt Doll was also a football guard. He seldom missed a practice session and was one of the first men on the practice field during his entire four years. He saw plenty of action in his four years as a member of Rhode Island teams. Raymond Barnes Ray Barnes was on the Rhode Island squad for two years, and that time im- pressed all the coaches and players with his earnestness and liking for the game. He showed his courage throughout the two years. He was an excellent defensive man. Anthony DiPetrillo Tony DiPetrillo was the only senior letterman when the season opened. A steady and dependable player, DiPetrillo was a distinct power in the Ram line. He played tackle and guard at various times during the season. Harry Pattee Another veteran of four years’ service, Pattee saw considerable service as an end. A steady plugger, Pattee worked hard in the practice sessions, was rewarded with a letter. -209- the qtilt THE STARTING LINEUP FRESHMAN FOOTBALL RECORD Freshmen 7 Freshmen 48 Freshmen 21 Freshmen 30 Freshmen 19 Freshmen 21 Freshmen 20 Bridgton 7 Marianapolis 0 Northeastern 6 Providence 0 Boston University .... o Connecticut 6 Brown University .... 13 -210- the qiilt FROSH SWEEP GRID OPPONENTS I HE most successful Freshman football season at Rhode Island State came to a close -1- on Armistice Day when the Ramlets defeated the highly regarded Brown Freshmen at Brown Field by a 20 to 13 score. The victory over the Bruin Cubs enabled the first-year team to finish its season undefeated with seven straight triumphs to its credit. Led by " Duke " Abbruzzi, whose excellent play throughout the season stamps him as one of the best football men ever to don a Freshman uniform, the Ramlets make the future outlook at Rhode Island exceedingly bright. Another Ramlet who impressed with his football ability was Warner Keaney, son of the head coach.

This year’s harriers stretched Rhode Island’s un- defeated string to 3 0 dual meets extending over a seven-year period. After outspeeding five dual-meet foes, the Ram harriers went on to capture the New England Intercollegiate cross country title for the second consecutive year. In the I. C. 4-A test, the Rams took sixth place in a field of 19 teams representing the pick of the American colleges and universities. Three seniors will be graduated from this championship aggregation, including Capt. William Eckhart, Roger Richardson, and Alexander Brown. E ckhart has had a highly successful cross country career at State. Discovered by Coach Tootell when he was attending a physical education class, Eckhart was ordered out for freshman cross country and earned his numerals. The following year he reported for the varsity, and was the first man home in the first time trials. He was never beaten by a teammate in intercollegiate Richardson and Brown have been mainstays of the Ram teams for the past three years, and their losses, coupled to Eckhart’s, will leave a considerable gap to be filled next fall. John McCormick, showing great improvement with every race, rated as the second man on the team at the close of the season. George Lyons, Ted Clarke, John Haufe, Henry Tereshkow, and Ted Dykstra were other members of the team who helped keep the Ram record intact. Alex Brown -213 - the jlilt FROSH UNBEATEN DURING SEASON Rhode Island ' s Freshman cross country team was another one of the first-year class’ excellent sports outfits, closing its season undefeated in four dual engagements, and then caking the New England Freshman Intercollegiate title. The Ramlets, showing a well-balanced team, swept by their dual meet opponents with very little trouble, nearly always taking the maximum number of points available. The season’s finale was the Freshman Intercollcgiates, and one of the Ramlets’ dual meet victims almost nosed them out for first-place honors, Rhode Island taking the title by a one-point margin, 7 1 to 72. Several excellent distance runners were on the cross country squad, and Lester Nichols led the field home in every race. Other good runners included George Gamache, Allen Pansar, and Robert Dixon.

The team was exceptionally fast and hard-hitting, scoring a total of 39 points as compared to the 17 points scored during the seven games of 1936. Rhode Island was victorious every time until they travelled to Pennsylvania, that state where hockey players arc trained from the cradle. On this trip Rhode Island defeated Mt. St. Joseph, but was beaten by Beaver and Drexel. The hockey fans of the campus will remember the Beaver game of 1936, played in Kingston, as a game of speed, ability, and sportsmanship. The game played in Pennsylvania this year was a repetition of the one held here. Each year Coach Jo Russell has built a stronger and faster team, with the hopes that in seasons to come, she will be able to invade even the hockey territory of Pennsylvania with success.

It’s a big day when we play Brown. Everyone cooperates to produce a really big affair. One of the chief adjuncts of this annual fall occasion is the Marching Band whose colorful, blue-and-white turnout symbolizes the Rhody spirit of all participants. But these men are not just glory seekers. It is often a far cry from this high point of glamour to their loyal playing for a handful of students in a drenching Kingston down- pour. For the bandmen are a dependable crew and maybe seen playing heartily at all but the most distant of football games. Little glory accrues to the band. The team’s the thing, at football games. Yet season after season these men may be found heading up the college spirit. And for meritorious service they receive a key in June. -218- the Jlllt . . . THE CROWD CHEERS " All right, the Big O Cheer. Make it big! Ready, one, two, three — ” This might be heard booming forth from the large blue megaphones at any football match. Nor would any gridiron picture be complete without these promotors of pep and noise. A great part of football is the crowd, and it is the business of these people to control and mix in that huge dynamic mass known tersely as " the spectators.” This year, a new enthusiasm was given this loyal bunch with a blanket tax appropria- tion and the zealous leadership of Mr. William J. Tudor and Joe Scott. With this to give impetus, a record number of the leather-lunged enthusiasts of both sexes turned to with a will to the task of organizing and directing the Rhody Spirit. Several scintillating rallies were put on with their aid. To make this body even more effective in the coming years, it is planned to outfit them in specially-designed costumes — one more bright insert in the colorful mosaic that is Ram football. -219- um Fall Brings Other Things -221 - • • the qtilt • • HARVEST QUEEN RULES THE BAWL Bethany Duchesneau Daniel G.

The sugar-coated pill that is Freshman Week was soon to wear off. The ruddy glow of fraternity rushing passed by quickly. Gradually the incoming freshmen became molded to the college pat- tern, and to a large measure the Freshman Bible became an increasingly important refer- ence. For it was only in this little handbook that the yearlings could obtain a dispas- sionate evaluation of all the college. The Freshman Bible is published annually by a staff chosen out of the present senior class. It is the purpose of the book to acquaint the freshmen with the entire set-up of the college and to act as a reference book throughout their four years.

The first brush with this body was usually sufficient to teach the yearlings that to conform to the rules is the easiest way of living with fellow collegians. Newly inaugurated by the Sachems this year was the Student Tribunal, made up of two students from each class appointed to enforce the freshman rules as stated in the Freshman Bible. Punishment for not adhering to the rules was prescribed by the Sachems and supported by the administration.

E. TITLE Rhode Island’s basketball five continued its sway over New England court opponents for the second straight year as it compiled one of the most imposing records ever turned in by a Ram quintet. Heading the list of accomplishments was the winning of the New England Conference title with an undefeated slate for the second year. Rhode Island also gained the State collegiate title with an un- blemished record against Brown and Provi- dence College. The Rams dropped but two games in a 2 1- game schedule against New England’s ranking court teams to add this section’s best games- won-and-lost record to their achievements. Rhode Island lost game number one in their third start of the season as Boston University, playing one of its best games, handed a 10- point defeat to the off -form Keaneymen. Eight consecutive wins were marked up by the Rams before they lost their second contest of the year to Massachusetts State by six point with a nine-game win streak.

He topped the high mark of Hank Luisetti, Stanford University’s ace forward, by 22 points. Jaworski ’s game average was exactly 21 points. His three-year total is now 9 5 1 points, which is better than the all-time four-year total for Rhode Island established two years ago by John Francis Martin. Jaworski also broke his own season scoring record of 301 points set last year. He now holds the fresh- man and varsity high scoring marks. Edward Tashjian Jaworski was selected as All-New England Conference forward for the second consecu- tive year. He led the New England scorers with 1 5 8 points in eight games. Three regulars of the 1937-38 court team played their last basketball game wearing the Rhode Island colors against the Friars of Prov- idence College. The three men are Edward Tashjian, David Partington, and Morris Fab- ricant. Tashjian was a unanimous choice with Chet Jaworski for the forward berths in the All-New England Conference selections. Fabricant was chosen for the second team at guard, and Partington was accorded honorable mention. Tashjian, playing in 20 games, pressed Jaworski for high scoring honors throughout the season. -236 - the gtilt NEW ENGLAND CONFERENCE RECORDS Final Standings W L Goals Fouls Pts.

The competition closed with the I. C. 4-A meet in New York, and Rhode Island took seventh place against the country’s finest track teams. The Ram total was just two points out of third place, and was a good indication of the close fight that was made before the places were gained by any team. In the season’s opener, the Prout games in Boston, the mile-relay quartet outsped Boston College and New York University in 3:27.6, excellent time for the first meet. The two-mile team also competed, but an official’s error helped bring about the downfall of the Tootell-mcn. The mile four placed third behind Georgetown and Williams in the Millrose meet while Stan Holt, an invited entry, took third in the Millrose 880. The Rams ran behind Fordham in the B. A. A. games with Williams third. Ed Singsen captured second place in the pole vault in this meet. In the K. of C. games in Providence, the mile team lost a dual engagement to Manhattan. Carle Morrill, running an excellent race, shared first place honors with Stripling of N. Y. U. in a special 600-yard run, and Singsen, vaulting 13 feet 6 inches, took second in the pole vault. the jtidt The mile relay team outran Colgate and Boston College in 3:24 to take its New York A.

The Crusader made the count three straight over the State Freshmen in a dual meet in the Knights of Columbus games at Providence, the final meet on the yearling schedule. Bob Dixon, Herb Gosling, Bob Black, and Dunbar Young comprised the relay four. B. A. A. Games in Boston Won by Holy Cross Freshmen; second, R. I. Freshmen; third, Boston College Freshmen.

E. Receding slightly from the days of Hearst Trophy winners, the Rifle Team landed squarely in the middle of the New England ratings this year. With the national ranking still unannounced, little doubt is expressed but that the team will land in the first division here. Wentworth and Ball were the two seniors on this team, with Posner, a . sophomore, assisting Ball in the leading scoring roles. Next year’s hopes seen bright with the coming up of a freshman team that handily blanked its sole opponent, Connecticut, on two successive occasions. The yearling sharp- shooters are Banfield, Buivid, Heffernen, Jones, Stene, and Weinrich. Under the veteran tutelage of Sergeant Friel, devotees of this branch of sport work long hours on the small bore range each week. Any afternoon they may be heard pinging away in the basement of the gym. Many of their matches are telegraph or mail matches, in which each team shoots its home course, sending in the targets for scoring; other matches feature the actual competition of shoulder-to-shoulder shooting. And for these competitions the men have organized the Rifle Club, with regularly elected officers to handle the business of the organization. MEN’S RIFLE CLUB OFFICERS President . Vice-President .

There was a good freshman turnout for a week’s preliminary practice before the 1937 varsity reported.

For the last six of those years, basketball has been under the tutelage of Joey Russell. She has built her team from a group playing six games to a team playing thirteen and victorious in eleven. This year Rhode Island women invaded New York and New Jersey rather suc- cessfully. The development of women’s hockey at Rhode Island has been wholly due to Joey’s efforts. In 1931 she started with a squad so small that men students had to be pressed into service for practice periods. In 1937 she trained a squad of 25 picked from a group of 40 candidates. Because few women have played hockey before coming to Rhode Island, the strength of Joey’s teams has been in the seniors, and each year she must build a new team. She has done an outstanding job, for the only defeats in hockey within the last two years have been at the hands of teams from the " hockey center,” Philadelphia. Her teams have had a spirit which has pulled them out of tight spots and has made them popular with officials. Outstanding referees of New England consider Joey one of the best coaches in this section. Joey certainly has brought women students into prominence. 931 932 HOCKEY BASKETBALL Won Lost Tied 2 0 1933 1 2 1934 2 3 1935 2 2 1936 3 0 1937 1 0 1938 Lost Tied 1 0 5 0 2 1 9 0 0 1 - 248 - the COED SHARPSHOOTERS WIN OUT Front Row: Jerrett, Thurbcr, Pamcleifl, L.

With George Hines as its only regular hurler, the Rams swept by all opponents in league contests to capture the New Eng- land Baseball Conference Baseball cham- pionship in its first year of competition. Rhode Island rang up seven triumphs in the new league without suffering a single Rhode Island lost four games during the course of the season’s play, but reversed the count with three of these opponents in return games. The Rams broke even with Brown University, Providence College, and Boston College. Holy Cross was the only team to boast a one-game advantage, the first game of the series being rained out and the Crusaders taking the second contest. Only Regular Hurler Irving Fay, in his first year of competition, had the best batting average on the team, but because of a stomach ailment was only able to play in seven games. Don Graham, playing a utility role throughout the season, was the actual batting leader for the Rhode Island team. Four Seniors were greatly responsible for the success of the team, Mel Entin, Bob Mudge, Johnnie Messina, and Eddie Fay. Mudge and Messina, two of the leading stickers, also had the best fielding averages among the regulars without an error being charged against them. Fay was probably the most polished ball player, and immediately following the close of the season, went into organized ball. Hines, ringing up 1 1 triumphs, was the outstanding player on the team. He was also considered one of the outstanding hurlers in New England college circles. He appeared in 17 of the 20 games played by the Rams, being used as a relief pitcher in three of these games. Two of his three losses might be attributed to overwork. His performance came in the game with Connecticut State College when he held the Nutmeggers hitless and runless until two were out in the ninth inning. -279- the jtiSt RAMLETS, OUTHIT, OUTSCORE FOES The 1937 freshman baseball nine won seven games in a nine-game schedule.

St. John’s found the going too fast, the Rhode Islanders taking every first place but one. Their neighboring rivals, Brooklyn College, were overwhelmed, too, by a nearly identical score. The third metropolitan team was Manhattan Col- lege, one of the foremost track schools in the country. Before the season began, the Rams were accorded but little chance of turning back the formidable Jaspers. Rhode Island, however, contin- ued its dual meet domination by winning con- vincingly. Competition was close, and many new marks were set up as a result. Irving Folwartshny, Len Hibbits, and Conley were double winners for Rhode Island, and I.ou Burns was the only Jasper repeater. Connecticut State’s Nutmeggers also fell by the wayside by a top-heavy count, although Tootell withdrew many of his leading men in order to prepare for the Harvard Relays the following day. Competing in five events at the Relays with nine men entered, the Rhode Island forces took three first places and two seconds, as every man figured in the scoring. Ed Singscn won the vault, Holt captured the mile, Folwartshny won and Jim Brown placed as second in the hammer, Bill Rowe led the field in the discus, and the mile-relay outfit of Conley, Frank Lord, Carle Morrill, and John Hines came in second. In the New England Intcrcollegiates Rhode Island faced this section’s leading schools, but its well-balanced strength was too much for the opposition. Folwartshny, Holt, Conley, Hibbits, Singsen, and Bill Eckhart were point-winners. Four Rams did all the scoring for Rhode Island in the I. C. 4-A test. Bill Rowe was the leading point-getter with a first in the discus and a third in the hammer. Folwartshny won the hammer. Holt, running against stiff competition, ran a splendid race to take third in the half-mile; and Ed Singsen took a tie in the pole vault. -282 - mu EEEEE the jtilt TRACK MAINSTAYS ARE SENIORS In the annals of Ram sports, the class of 1938 stands forth as :dominately a " track” class.

The Ramlets swept by six opponents in marking up its unblemished slate, and its closest meet was the last of the season against the Connecticut State Freshman team. The first-year men opened against Westerly high, and the schoolboys were smothered under a top-heavy score as they were only able to score four points. The Bruin Cubs were among the teams defeated, the Ramlets winning this meet rather handily, too.

This show offers every student an opportunity to put in his bid for honors of one type or another. It combines the best of all types of showmanship. The students write the show, the music, the lyrics; the students direct the show; the students act in the show; and the students put the show over by publicizing it, by arranging a program, by selling tickets, by staging, and by costuming it. How did it begin? At a Phi Delta meeting back in the early autumn of 1936, Len Looby suggested a musical show. Because he suggested it, and because he was a capable and interested lad he was appointed chairman of a committee to delve into details. A meeting was held and progress was begun. Ballinger and Looby collaborated to write the script, MacDonald and Ballinger wrote the music and lyrics, and Carragher, who began as a coach, developed into the general manager and director. Marjorie Dunn took care of the costumes, Lucas and Rosenvik came through with stage settings, Woodbury with publicity, and Mrs. Russell with dances ... It couldn’t fail, and it didn’t. This year ... A better show by Ballinger, better dances by Dottie Davis, better music by MacDonald and Ballinger, better technical directions by Dunham, better cos- tumes by Marjorie Dunn, better staging by Lucas, Hazard and Young, and better producing and managing by Carragher ...

In past years, Juniors have offered Ozzie Nelson, the Dorsey Brothers, Ray Noble, and Hal Kemp-, and for the past two years a queen has been voted by the class and awarded a cup. This year these people listed below added number five to the string of successes, when they held their Prom at the Biltmore in Providence, May 3, 1938. THE COMMITTEE FOR 1938 General Chairman H.

For ten long months they had been grooming for a place in the collegiate sun, along with their upperclass friends. True, they had sent out teams, sponsored projects, and appeared at dances; but this was their first concentrated class action. At this Freshmen Banquet they emerged from the chrysalis of the first year as full fledged sons and daughters of Rhody. Class leaders had been developed, and the flashy popularity people had commenced to wane. We could now obtain a real idea of the yearlings’ great. Watch these people for the Sachems of 1941.

It is the highest scholastic honor obtainable at Rhode Island and is an enviable goal for the the ambitious scholar. At two periods of the year, Phi Kappa Phi votes students into membership. The first election comes in the fall of the senior year at which time those students who have an extremely high average for their first three years are selected. The second election comes in the spring and gives those people who spurt in their senior year an opportunity of making the society. The golden key which is Phi Kappa Phi represents high scholarship primarily, but combined with this it also represents a high moral character, and co-operation. the jti5t PHI KAPPA PHI STUDENT MEMBERS Alexander Brown Natalie D.

It is this body which represents the ultimate goal for many underclassmen, but only fifteen members of the junior class are selected, through a point system based on activities and scholarship, to hold office in this group during their senior year. This past year has marked a busy year for this membership. Its activities of the year began with class elections in which there was cast the largest number of votes ever recorded in a class poll. Closely following this came Homecoming Day which chalked up a record in shosvmanship, as all of the fraternities tried to outdo one another in decorations. The next major event which stirred the Sachems was the mayorality campaign in which one of their own members was elected to the office of Mayor of Kingston and treated to an Inaugural Dance. The Faculty Ball, recorded in the history of the college as the only dance to ever be held in Green Hall, came along in order, to be followed by the Freshman class elections, and a blowout by the Sachems in the spring. The Sachems form a Freshman Tribunal to care for the violators of freshman rules, budget class expenditures, and attend to any matters which arise during the school year regarding the activity of the students, as well as meet with the faculty and alumni representatives to discuss intelligently the problems of the college and plan suitable actions. the jtilt THE SACHEMS MEMBERS Moderator John J.

This society is open to all juniors in the spring of their junior year, and during the entire year it is made up of the senior class. The most important function of this group is the sponsorship of the Military Ball at which dance the new members are tapped, and the co-ed colonel is announced. The organization also holds an annual banquet to which all of the officer personnel is invited. This dinner, which is attended in uniform, is one of the best banquets of the college year. It has the typical qualities of all the military functions, ceremonious enough to be impressive, but unceremonious enough to be fun. Most outstanding member of Company H, the local chapter, is Major Richard Mathews Sandusky, who this year ends his tour of duty at Rhode Island State College. Prominent in many activities other than the military, he succeeded in retaining the rating of excellent for the college unit and attained his ma- jority. But more than this was the esteem and respect he merited from all who knew him. Special tribute was paid this " fellow graduate” at the Scabbard and Blade banquet — more eloquent by far is the feeling of real personal pride in having known this officer and gentleman that his associates will always cherish.

Upon election to this group, the differences of the sexes fostered by the annual freshmen debates between the women and the men arc put away, at least for the purposes of debate. And that these people arc ranking debaters no one can deny, for varsity debating is the chief prerequisite to membership. Feature of this group’s activity is the annual convention of New England Chapters held here for the past four years.
