It is true that the primary reason for our attending college is to equip ourselves to meet the obligations of society and to be better able to make our own living. Be that as it may, however, th ere is an intangible, but real, benefit that we may acquire from college if we will but recognize it. Such benefit is the ability to live in the true sense of the word, to live fully cognizant of the world about us and of the true standards of value therein. If we will but let ourselves develop such a trend of thought, we will be able to recognize happiness no matter what we may be doing in the years to come. This does not mean that we must necessarily lose our ambition, never striving for progress, but it does mean that we should be able to live with a true sense of values which are not necessarily based on the weekly payroll. The 1939 Grist has been developed with a sincerity of purpose, using as its theme one of the intangible benefits of college life which exist regard- less of worldly events. We hope, therefore, that the readers will disregard any differences in taste or arrangement, and will try to grasp, with us, a few of the thoughts we have attempted to present. - 5 - DEDimnon A S we view current events from day to day in the newspapers, in the theatres, and in everyday life, we very often become confused. We can pick out instances of heroism, of cowardliness, of sorrow, of happiness, of tragedy, of good fortune, and of any- thing and everything. There seems to be no consistency to life, no unity of purpose, and no set standards from which we can shape our own lives. It is natural, therefore, that we should at times, just sit and wonder what, if anything, is the purpose of it all. At the present time the news of the day seems to be dominated by examples of unfriendly relations between countries, between political parties, and between individuals. It has become very easy to develop an unfriendly attitude and to lose cognizance of the fact that all is not bitter. We become cynical and doubt such statements as “Every creature of God is good.’’ Fortunately, such periods of perplexity do not remain constant, but they do cause us to doubt our own convictions. When we do become doubtful of the good in life, it is well to look about us and to realize that it is a natural tendency to over- emphasize the unfortunate events in life. We accept the good in a matter of fact way and fail to realize its true worth. Due apprecia- tion of the good that does exist is not granted, and as a consequence, we fail to give a true analysis of what we have. - 6 - While in college, we have ample opportunity to avail ourselves of many theories of life and of living. We find it difficult to accept any one theory, and sometimes we place ourselves on a pedestal supposing that everyone else is foolish in striving for ideals, ambi- tions, and hopes. We suppose that we are different and that we live independently, free from personal entanglements and obliga- tions. Such, however, is not the case. Although college enables us to attain a certain amount of independence, it also teaches us the fundamental concept of inter- dependence which is so important in contemporary society. In all fairness to ourselves and to our fellow men, we must admit the importance of personal cooperation, and we should learn to derive the full benefits therefrom. The past four years have brought many new friends and new acquaintances. It would be well to give a little serious thought to the significance of such relationships. Because of the prevalence of an unfriendly attitude in modern society and because of the need of any college graduate to have a stabilizing influence in planning his or her future life, the 1939 Grist is hereby dedicated to one of the intangible, but real, benefits of a college education — the foundation of college life ■ — ■ - 7 - CRIST EXECUTIVE STAFF Editor-in-Chief Edgar C.

Everett Stoddard - 9 - I ' IME has been fleet and soon another milepost in our lives will pass. It is fitting J- that we now consider well, just how we have run the course and towards which goal we shall turn. A short four years past. I. a stranger at your institution, watched the young men of the Class of Nineteen Thirty-Nine pass in so-called “review” after they had, very hurriedly, been filled out in a new hind of wearing apparel. Even at that early date, " lien I knew neither name nor residence, I was more or less acquainted with the starry-eyed youngsters who, much amazed, passed my view and who would have done well indeed as a cartoonist’s model for a comic strip in one of our service papers as being the last thing in what not to do with a uniform. However, not knowing one, I knew you all. You were simply a contemporary cross section of typical American youth who, like myself, only younger, were to be members of a fine educational institution for the ensuing four years. Most of us stayed our time and are at present looking forward with anticipation to where next we shall place our interests. It is well that we do this at this time. After a very ' careful analysis of facts and conditions, we must arrive at a decision which to many will be all-important. In this may ' I counsel you, my friends, to think clearly and to be sufficiently wise to seek and use the counsel of the many fine men and women of experience whose advice is available to you while you are yet students at Rhode Island State College. There is, however, another factor which I would like to emphasize at this time when our parting, both from individuals and from an institution, is but slightly removed. I would ask y ' ou to look back in the mirror of four years ago and see just what you were when you entered college. After such a glance and after another appraisal of your present self, I am certain that you will agree with me that all of US have benefited greatly during our college years. But there have been other forces at work which have had their effect upon us. I refer to that fine spirit of comradeship which is so evident both on and off the campus. From personal observations, I am convinced that not until the close of the freshman year did the members of the present graduating class become acquainted. But how ' different now ' , when, as a class, you approach the crossroads in your educa- tional adventure. Now ' fine friendships exist. These are made a living ideal, having been forged by the heat of four years of mutual cooperation. T his is a splendid manifestation and may ' you carry this ideal so well imbedded in your heart, fostering it so that it will yet be a guide of living to you even when old men and women relate the story to grandchildren whose time is not yet come. So as we leave for our various vocations and places of occupations, may we ever recall that we made many friends during our collegiate years, not only with our classmates but with the faculty and the institution itself. Our thoughts and actions, after we leave college, should be that of a friend to our Alma Mater since she has “shown us the way from which we have received much and to which we should prove ourselves ready to give, thus evidencing a very excellent indication of true friendship. - 10 - Captain Joseph William Kullman - 11 - TABLE OF iositeisis CHAPTER PAGE 1.

Space does not permit the presentation of all the various scenes with which we associate college, hut it is hoped that the few that are given will revive memories of the most pleasant friendships incurred while undergraduates. The present graduating class has witnessed the construc- tion, completion, and dedication of various buildings on the campus. Although plans for greater growth have been obstructed for the present at least, the graduating class, having enjoyed an unprecedented growth of the college during their four years, may see fit to do whatever may be possible to aid continued progress in the form of more adequate facilities. The lead page, which is typical of all throughout the book, shows the title of the section supplanted on a background of granite. It is hoped that this will serve to represent the strength of friendships both before and after college. - 15 - - 16 - - 17 - I I - 18 - Dedicatory Exercises October 1, 1938, the college and student body at Rhode Island State College were honored by the presence of the First Lady of the land, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. Mrs. Roosevelt graciously accepted an invitation to come to the college to participate in the dedicatory exercises held for Meade Athletic Field, Rodman Hall, Q uinn Hall, and Eleanor Roosevelt Hall. Other notable speakers of the day were Governor Robert E. Quinn, Senator Theodore Francis Green, and Representative John E. Meade. The principal address of the program was made by Dr. Raymond G. Bressler. 1 he following pages present pictures of the buildings dedicated and also of the dedicatory exercises. PROGRAM FOR DEDICATORS - 19 - 20 -21 - 22 - - 23 - I I -24 nommisTRimon I Executive T HE attitude toward the executive branch of the college administration is more or less a passive one unless through exceptional cases we come into direct contact with these officers. When such is the case, there is always a tendency toward complaint when something goes wrong hut no sign of appreciation when everything runs smoothly. Naturally it is not possible to create personal friendships between the whole student body and the various administrative officers; it is an ideal to be sure but not a practicability. This does not mean, however, that there should be no attempt at all to instill into each student that general feeling of friendliness and unification which solidifies the functions of any college and makes it act as one. The wrongs of one should be considered as the wrongs of all, and the good in one as the good in all. What has been said is not only relevant to college organization, but should be borne in mind concerning all organizations regardless of size. It would be well for all graduates to take up their new responsibilities with this realization. Whatever type of organization we become connected with later on, we should recognize the fact that we can be of real worth only if we accept the principles of that organization and abide by the same through thick and thin. - 27 - BOARD OF REGERTS William H.

His daughter had come to the President to discuss something that loomed up ominously for her, but which she had magnified beyond its proportions. After some questions and answers, she left the office, evidently feeling much happier than when she came in. In his letter, her father expressed to me his genuine satisfaction that his daughter was attending an institution which was more than a coordinated cluster of buildings and curricula. Upon trying to analyze the reasons for the pleasure which I derived Irom this letter, I summarized them into this para- phrase of an old aphorism: Friendliness is its own reward. I hat expresses the policy which, we hope, permeates the entire college. Some- one has called it the " open door policy because all members of the campus com- munity have been encouraged to discuss their problems, but not gossip, with the president. This policy has been subjected to trial by test, and it has passed the test of almost a decade. That father’s letter was a graphic, tangible statement of verification, and his unintentional endorsement of the policy, I suppose, was the impulse to my pleasure. After all, when in the course of the years, generations of young Amer- icans pass through the College gates, remaining as members of our college community only for a limited, though crucial, period of their lives, it behooves those of us who are permanent members of this community to serve in the finest sense of the meaning of " alma mater.” I hat service partakes of the nature of sincere solicitude for the welfare of the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual lives of our undergraduates. It makes of Rhode Island State more than an institution: it makes of it our Alma Mater, to be cherished and reverenced because of its Friendliness. Raymond G. Bressler, President - 30 - The Fatuity I I IN URING the past year we have seen several changes in our faculty. 1 he retirement of Dean Adams, the resignations of Dr. Noll and Dr. Vernon, the appointment of Major Greer as successor to Major Sandusky, and the addition of Mr. Paul S. Burgess as Dean of Agriculture and Home Economics mark a few of the more important changes. College friendships are not only made among the students themselves hut many are made between student and professor. Perhaps it is safe to say that every graduating student knows at least one professor to whom he can go and talk as friend to friend. Such a condition is truly desirable as it not only adds to the joy of college life but it makes for better and more productive work on the part of both. - 31 - I I Raymond George Bressler A.B., M.A., B.S., M.S., LL.D., ED.D., SC.D.

Kinney ‘Succeeded by Dean Paul S. Burgess Organized under tlie provision of the Smith-Lever Act, the Extension Service endeavors to bring to those people who are beyond college age a report on the develop- ments in agriculture and home economics that are being made continually at the college. General information is dispersed through lectures, radio programs, pamphlets, and. in some cases, demonstrations. It is this group which is more or less responsible for the publicity given to the various projects carried on here in Kingston. - 61 - RHODE ISLAND EXPERIMENT STATION First Row . Smith. L. Marcotte.

Bulletins are distributed to all who desire and apply for them. Too many of us are not familiar with the work carried on by the Experiment Station and consequently do not appreciate its worth; suffice it to say that many of the experiments and their results have gained national recognition and have done a great deal in advancing the status of the college in this line. - 62 - Seniors I 2 A S we pause in the turmoil of graduation and think of our class from 1935 to 1939, we realize that many have dropped by the wayside, in fact over a hundred students who comprised, with us, the freshman class of 1935 are not with us today as Seniors. Some have voluntarily withdrawn because of various reasons, others have not heen able to make the grade, and three members of the class have made the supreme gradua- tion from this world to the next. The friendships among the Senior class become stronger as the time for graduation and separation grows near. We begin to realize the value of such friendships and in some cases, the thoughts of starting out anew bring with them a feeling of loneliness. It is hoped that in the years to come, the 1939 Grist will serve as a memory milestone marking the time, place, and circumstances of our most valuable friendships. - 65 - ‘M $ " ■! i • i i ; . 1 SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS Left to Right: Murpliy, Aldrich, Tyler.

Tbe graduating Seniors wisb to express tbe bope tbat tbe class of 1940 will pause witb us on tbe thoughts of friendship, perhaps deriving a desire to make stronger in their last year, tbe friendships started in previous years.

James Dallas Caswell - 136 - I Sophomores I ' HE Sophomore class, on completing its second year of college lile, has reached the half-way mark of its undergraduate journey, and is now entering the latter phase of its college career. The members ol the class of 41 have also proved their worth and can present to any doubter material examples of the progress they have made in two years time. May the Senior class express their recognition of the true mettle of the Sophomores. As valid friendships know no class bounds, there are, no doubt, many Seniors who have staunch friends among the Sophomore class. For them, active, everyday verification of such friendship must necessarily cease, but we should like to regard this as a pause rather than an end of such friendship. - 137 - SJ-HHMH -Wlfcfcfcfc ILL prro: m rmm J2 i kjg M 1 iL-L.

They began a new life; they have launched their ship of success hoping it will stay afloat with “full speed ahead.” We too hope that they will not become disillusioned and discouraged. Many will he the troubles and obstacles they will meet, but knowing that a ship built for a calm sea is not of much value, we feel that they have equipped themselves to meet the strongest of storms. Again, we hope that friendship will be their captain, leading them forever onward and joining them in a common bond never to be broken. - 147 - Lem LiLlLiL L LILILIL ' 1 H H II IB I I IK I UK HU I iLLLU, L ■i-li-LJ- 1LIL1L FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS Left to Right: Benheimer.

The strength of such friendship is enhanced by the ties of secrecy; the joy of such friendship is augmented by everyday association. The presumption should not be made, however, that although friendship within the fraternity may be strong, external friendships are made improb- able; fraternities very often sponsor the active promulgation of outside friendships and, in any case, do not act to prevent them. In the consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of a fra- ternity, which is often the case, the value of friendship as a part of life should be considered and insofar as such is deemed important, so is the fraternity. - 161 - I I POLYGON First Row: Billmycr, Melaragno, Blazar, Murphy.

Its most important function is the formulation and enforcement of rushing rules, but it also hears and settles all other problems which involve interfraternity relationships.

Again secrecy plays an important part in supplementing the ties of friendship and association adds to the joy therein. Sorority life supplies, as does fraternity life, an outlet for the natural tendency in human nature to be gregarious. Everybody favors association generally and within the confines of a sorority, the college girl finds the needed company, sympathy, happiness, and wholesome friendship that makes life more full. The following pages present in outline form the existing sororities, pictures of houses and members, and lists of officers who served during the past year. - 189 - PAN-HELLENIC ASSOCIATION Left to Right: Richard.

One of its more important functions is the supervision of sorority rushing, carried on in the second semester. In the spring of each year, the association sponsors a major dance, and throughout the year it promotes smaller social affairs which help to build up friendly sorority relations. - 191 - I I SIGMA KAPPA Founded al Colby College 1874 40 Chapters Established at R.

The past few years have witnessed an increase in the size of these clubs, especially in the case of the women s groups. Perhaps the future will produce an increase in number. Although not included in the following pages, mention should be made of the University Club which houses various graduate students of the college. The University Club is a comparatively new organization but has proved so successful as to more than warrant its continued existence. - 201 - EAST HALL ASSOCIATION hounded al Rhode Island 19 30 Total Membership 2 10 Raymond H.

A section is therefore devoted to the portrayal of the above rewards both in type and in composition. Some are specialized societies representing notable work in a specific endeavor; others are general in character and represent an ability to attain worthy results in many fields. In either case, those students who have been admitted to any or several of the following societies have earned a distinction which places them in the category of campus leaders. The 1939 Grist pays its respects to these students and wishes them like success in that school of the world, whatever it may be, into which they may go. - 211 - SACHEMS Firsl Row: Cushman.

The old Biological Society of Rhode Island was established as Alpha Xi Chapter of Phi Sigma in 1935. The organization here at Rhode Island has afforded unusual opportunities for its members and others of the college interested in the biological sciences. Membership in the society is attained by securing four semesters of honor work in biology and by maintaining a high degree of personality and character. Monthly meetings with guest speakers are held, a biological paper. The Cell , is published, and an annual exhibit is placed on display, proving the society to be an active one. Professor De Wolf and Dr. Hunter have done much in the capacity of faculty advisers to further the progress of the organization.

Stiippce, Billinycr Tau Kappa Alpha, the national honorary forensic fraternity, was founded at Indianapolis. Indiana, in 1908. The Rhode Island Chapter was established in the year 1919. and its membership has steadily increased by the initiation of those candidates who have participated in at least two varsity debates. The idea of the Model Session of Congress, which is sponsored by Tau Kappa Alpha, was originated in the Rhode Island Chapter, resulting in favorable national recognition for the fraternity as well as the college. This year the Model Session was held in March, and many outstanding colleges participated in both the Congress and in the oratorical and after-dinner speaking contests. Professor George E. Brooks - 222 - Debating I I A ANY times too little regard is paid to those students who have made ■h T accomplishments in the art of debating. Debating represents rational thinking, clear and contemplative reasoning, an intelligent and forceful presentation of an argument, and a pleasing personality. Without these the debater is not considered successful. The colle ge has sponsored an active interest in debating and has suc- ceeded in promoting a greater interest in the same on the part of the student body. On leaving college, perhaps there are many who regret not having availed themselves of the opportunity to acquire greater skill in the knack of public speaking. If such is the case, may it prove as an incentive to gain not what is lost but what has been neglected. - 223 - WRANGLERS FirstRow: Zisserson, Lord, Maslerson. Thompson, Professor Brooks. Looby.

During the past year debates were held with such formidable opponents as Brown University. Providence College, University of New Hampshire, and Connecticut State College. This organization has done much in advertising our school by sending its able debaters on a tour of southern colleges, including the University of Tennessee, University of Georgia, and William Mary University. The Wranglers also had representatives in the Model Session of the United States Congress sponsored by the Tan Kappa Alpha Society and in after-dinner oratorical contests.

The visiting students were welcomed by Raymond Thompson, president of the Wranglers. After the dinner, extemporaneous speeches were made by representatives of the various colleges. On Friday President Raymond G. Bressler opened the session with an address to the General Assembly at 8:30 a. m. lollowing which the Congress separated into the House and Senate. Debating honors were taken by two Maine schools. The University of Maine in the House won on the arguments made for a resolution urging Congress to appropriate S500.000.000 for the construction of a Nicaraguan Canal; Bates college in the Senate won in supporting a bill for a national health program. The Rhode Island delegation of Raymond Thompson, Leonard Looby, Esther Masterson, and Barbara Wickham, debated the ‘pump-priming ' ’ issue. Forty-eight students from twelve Eastern colleges were enrolled. I larold R. Shippee of Pawtucket presided over the Senate, and Edward L. Coman of Wakefield presided over the House. All expressed an appreciation of the work of Prof. Brooks in planning the program. - 226 - I Dramatics I ’HE societies represented in the following pages have supplied no little enjoyment to the student body during the past year; they have provided an outlet for the emotions. Comedy, tragedy, romance, and pathos have all been depicted with equal success. Those who have served as actors may look back on the long rehearsals and sometimes monotonous memorizing of lines and rest assured that they have contributed much to the pleasantness of college life. Perhaps, too, tbey have acquired new and pleasing friendships as a result of their dramatic efforts; this in itself proves that they have not worked in vain. - 227 - PHI DELTA First-Row: Webster, Barrows, Lucas.

The group is primarily dramatic but incorporates many addi- tional lines of interest since all decorations, properties, designing, music, dancing, etc., are produced by the students and play a major part in the work of the organiza- tion as a whole. Since the success of Phi Delta depends to a great extent upon the executives in charge, much credit is due to those officers who have served during the past year. Perhaps the most noted and most anticipated production of Phi Delta, is the Rhody Revue, which has become in two years a vital part of campus life. This year, as the Grist goes to press, preparations are being made for the third such revue, and already interest and anxiety are high as to the result. Under the general direction of Raymond Thompson, notable work is being done by Martin L. Looby in writing the script. Dorothy E. Davis in devising new dance routines, and Samuel J. DeCourcy. Jr., in composing the songs. President .... Vice-President . Secretary .... Treasurer. . . . Business Manager . Technical Director Raymond J. Thompson . . Ida Louise Curry M. Esther Masterson . M.

II we will but pause a moment and reflect upon the significance of music in our everyday life, we will recognize the fact that music may be con- sidered creative in tbat its tone and tempo are able to create moods and have a direct effect upon the emotional senses.

All have as their ultimate aim the offering of a definite service. One serves the Junction of guiding freshmen in the spirit of congeniality: another presents a weekly review of college news and promotes friendship by supplying a unification ol college interests; still another attempts to review college life in its entirety and to develop a definite purpose. The 1939 Grist has accepted the responsibility of attempting to develop a definite purpose and has chosen as its theme a subject of para- mount importance. It is significant to note in this connection that for three years preceding 1939, the yearly Senior ballot has shown the answer to the question.

Emphasis is placed on cooperation and though tech- nicalities are dealt with, informality and a communal relationship are not sacrificed. Graduation time is, in a sense, a time of review. It is a time when we look hack on what we have done, weighing our merits and demerits, and hoping that we might meet with some satisfaction. Those who have been affiliated with any of the several technical societies will derive a certain amount of satisfaction in looking hack on their work therein. I hey know that they have made an honest endeavor to do justice to their work while at the same time aiding in promoting greater interest in a subject which they have adopted as a personal liking. - 240 - AERO CLUB President Raymond Stockard Vice-President William Barnett Secretary Richard Leon Treasurer Alexandra Dobrolet Adviser Dr. Nicholas Alexander Adviser Professor Igor Sikorsky Raymond Stockard Propagated by an ever-increasing interest in aeronautics, tbe Aero Club was organized in 1935 through the initiative of Dr. Alexander and Professor Sikorsky.

I he measure of success in the case of these clubs lies in the number of individ- uals participating. Here, the old saying, “the more the merrier,” is given practical recognition. We can look on our membership in such clubs and honestly feel that they have contributed a necessary element to the success- ful college career. Besides the attraction of friendliness, discussion clubs also prove to be the battlefield on which clashing theories meet and are reconciled. Mis- understandings, misconceptions, and misinterpretations are all clarified, not only without jeopardizing friendships but in most cases strengthening them. - 251 - STUDENT FELLOWSHIP Front Row: Peters.

The most important accomplishment of the council during the past year was the holding of the first engineer’s dance. 1 he dance was named the Slide Rule Strut and. it is hoped, will become an annual event. Judging by the success of the first Slide Rule Strut, there is every reason to believe that the years following will see many such dances. - 256 - athletics Football VT O college is complete within itself as a college unless a well-rounded -b athletic program is genuinely supported. Likewise no athletic pro- gram can be considered complete if provision has not been made for football. There are no times comparable to those we have spent cheering lustily as the small but dynamic Rhody teams have fought furiously on the gridiron. We shall always remember the typical razzle-dazzle brand of football with which we have become familiar and by which we have been thrilled time and time again. The following few pages represent a definite attempt to illustrate and relate those things which will revive memories of the four football seasons in which we have participated, not necessarily as part of the team but as a part of the ever-cheering crowd. - 259 - VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM Score Dale Opponent Place R.I.

If the entire season bad not been marked by injuries which forced Coach Keaney to play men out of their natural positions and to shift his line-up consistently, it would more than likely have resulted in a higher per- centage of wins. Despite this handicap, however, Rhody fought to win until the last minute and made every ' team it faced realize that it had been in a good hard game. Louis “Duke " Abbruzzi, Sophomore fullback, was the outstanding ground- gainer for the team. Proving himself throughout the season to be a sensational runner. Abbruzzi s best game was that against Holy Cross in which he scored twice. Rhode Island was the only team to face Holy Cross all season that scored more than once against the powerful Crusad ers. Abbruzzi also received a signal honor when he was chosen as halfback on the All-New England Small College team and on the All-New England second team. Those of us who are graduating will long remember the many thrilling moments that we spent in watching the " Duke” perform; those who are staying on have another promising season to look forward to. Other outstanding men were: Rene Duranleau, ace passer and team director; Ed Petro. stalwart 60-minute tackle: Cliff Pace, burly center and line backer; Warner Keaney, ace kicker, who converted 11 straight points-after-louchdown: and Capt. Magee, who played a steady and dependable game at a hard position, guard. Others from whom much is expected next season are Zammarchi. Robinson. Whaley. Flynn. Orlando, Larrabee, Gates, De Cesare, and Mantenuto. - 262 - 5 I RHODE ISLAND 14. MAINE 6 The Rhode Island Rams stepped off on the right foot to win their first game of the football season from the University of Maine at Orono by the score of 14-6. Led by “Duke” Abbruzzi. who scored two touchdowns, the State team functioned smoothly, and Maine was unable to score until late in the last quarter. The first of Abbruzzi’s touchdowns came in the first period as a result of a 16-yard sprint; the second came in the last period as a result of a notable 30-yard run. Both were of the type that prove interesting and thrilling to the spectators. The lone Maine score was made by Stearns and came at the end of a sustained 20-yard march. Keaney showed that he had not lost his touch by kicking the poinl-after-touchdown on both occasions. HOLY CROSS 46, RHODE ISLAND 13 Facing a team vastly superior to it in all departments of the game, Rhode Island met its first defeat of the season at the hands of Holy Cross in a game played at Worcester. What the Rams lacked in ability, they made up in fight, and the final score does not indicate the closeness of the game. The crowd of 7,500 was kept on edge throughout, and the last quarter, providing six touchdowns, supplied plenty of thrills. Continuing the pace set in the Maine game, Abbruzzi scored twice in the last quarter after receiving passes from Mike Franchuk. On the first pass, 18 yards were - 263 - I covered, while the second provided a gain of 63 yards. I he first pass was notable as Abbruzzi literally lifted the ball out of Bill Osmanski’s hands at the goal. The Duke caught the second on his own 40-yard line and raced through the Holy Cross secondary for a touchdown. It can be seen, therefore, that State did not fail to live up to pre-game expectations in furnishing a very exciting and razzle-dazzle game. The Crusaders scored in each period on well executed plays and displayed a very powerful attack with devastating blocking ability. Two of H. C. ' s touchdowns, however, came as a result of intercepted passes in the first quarter. On one Whelan of Holy Cross raced 52 yards for a touchdown: on the other Lynch covered 54 yards for another marker. In all. the Rams gained 229 yards by passing, completing 13 out of 38 and having six intercepted. The Crusaders proved far superior in rushing, covering 414 yards as compared to State’s 33. Abbruzzi, Duranleau, and Petro were the stand-outs for Rhode Island. Besides his notable rushing, ihe Duke tackled and blocked with exceptional effect. Duranleau. until forced to leave the game because of a shoulder injury, kept H. C. worried with many deceptive passes. Proving to be a tower of strength in the line, Petro allowed little territory to be gained through his position. Rhode Islanders may well be proud of this game even in defeat. The courage and spirit displayed by the team was noted amongst all the spectators and brought much commendation through applause. - 264 - I I RHODE ISLAND 31. AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL 0 Scoring almost at will, Rhode Island, led by Abbruzzi, won its second game in three starts over American International College in the first home game of the year. Although held to one touchdown. Abbruzzi twisted and sprinted to pile up an afternoon ' s yardage of 224 yards from the scrimmage line within two and one-half periods. Notable work was also done by R. I.’s reserves. Led by Russ McNamara and Dallas Robinson, they scored four touchdowns in the closing frame. McNamara scored twice while Robinson and Fabricant each scored once. When the Amicos resorted to the air in a last-minute attempt to score, one of their passes resulted in another R. I. touchdown. RHODE ISLAND 20. MASSACHUSETTS STATE 0 In this, the fourth game of the season. Rhode Island again proved victorious. Abbruzzi again took scoring honors and again sparked R. I. on to victory. The first quarter was disastrous for the Aggies as it was in this period that R. I. scored two of its touchdowns, one after a 62-yard run by Abbruzzi supported by Franchuk and the other after a short 6-yard jaunt again by Abbruzzi. In the last period, the Rams pushed their third marker over in the way of an 88-yard run by A1 Robblee. Pace and Pelro were outstanding in the line. - 265 - I I BROWN 40. RHODE ISLAND 21 The annual Brown-Rhode Island game was. as usual, filled with spirit and with thrills. Before an estimated c rowd of 12,000, the Rams played a game similar to the Holy Cross game in which spirit was required to face great odds. Meeting Brown for the twenty-ninth time in the history of the intra-state rivalry, R. I. went down to defeat at the hands ol a very powerful team. I he game, although con- sidered one-sided as to score, was replete with thrills as Rliocly filled the air with passes which were responsible for all its scores. Brown practically put the game on ice in the first quarter by scoring two touch- downs, adding two more in the second period and two in the last for good measure. Rhode Island scored two in the third quarter and one in the last. For Brown, McLaughry and Bernstein both scored two touchdowns and Detwilcr and Prodgers scored one each; for Rhode Island De Cesare, Franchuk, and Fabricant each made one touchdown. McLaughry and Bernstein each made two points-after-touchdown while Keaney made three. The State offense, halted in the first half, opened up in the third period grabbing their first score of the afternoon via a 19-vard pass from Duranleau to De Cesare in the end zone. Again in the same quarter, Duranleau passed to Fabricant from the 40-yard line and moved the ball to Brown’s four. Franchuk then took the pigskin over on the first try. The last R. I. touchdown came in the last quarter when - 266 - I I Duranleau again made one of his passes click, this time for 69 yards with Fabricant receiving. Warner Keaney then kicked the point after touchdown, was penalized 15 yards for holding, and proceeded to duplicate his first effort, this time from the 30-yard mark. Abbruzzi, a constant threat all afternoon, was closely watched on every play. Stalled offensively, he was very effective defensively and played the full sixty minutes of the bruising battle. Magee, Petro, and Pace all saw service during the entire game, and Duranleau was a stand-out as a result of his passing. WORCESTER 19. RHODE ISLAND 14 A surprisingly late fourth-quarter attack saw Worcester Tech upset Rhode Island 19-14 before a Homecoming Day crowd of 2.000 at Meade field. Entering the game as the under-dog. Worcester emerged victorious because of R. I s failure to meet their last-minute surge. The whole game was marked by spasmodic play on the part of the Rams. They out-rushed the visitors by a wide margin but once inside the 10-yard line their attack failed. Duranleau, playing with an injured shoulder, sparked the Ram backfield on both its touchdown drives. He was aided greatly by Robinson and Abbruzzi. In the line, the play of Cliff Pace. Larry Gates, Ed Petro, and Jim Magee was outstanding. Keaney continued to show his ability with his educated toe by kicking two points- after-touchdown. - 267 - RHODE ISLAND 21. CONNECTICUT STATE 20 Staging a sensational comeback in the second Half, after trailing 20-7 at the end of the first half, Rhode Island triumphed over Connecticut State 21-20 on Connecticut’s Homecoming Day. It was the 37th annual meeting between the two schools. It seems safe to say that this was the most thrilling and satisfying victory of the season. All during the first half the Keaneymen were held in check by the strong and formidable Storrsmen, and it was not until the closing moments of the second quarter that they were able to push over their first marker. This first touchdown came as a result of a Duranleau-to-Rohblee pass and was followed by the extra point as made by Warner Keaney. Sparked by their first score. Rhody came back in the third period and immediately proceeded to take up where they had left off. Robblee returned the opening kick-off 28 yards to the 33-yard mark. Abbruzzi then clicked off 22 yards. Franchuk threw a pass to the Duke which placed R. I. on the Nutmcggers’ 34-yard line, and Franchuk came right back again with a long pass, this time to Whaley, which was good for the score. Again Keaney converted the extra point. The final R. I. score came through the combined efforts of Abbruzzi and McNamara. Together they advanced the ball from their own 15 to the Connecticut 47. On the next play Abbruzzi attempted to lateral to McNamara hut as the hall bounced on the ground, it appeared as though the play was stopped. McNamara scooped it up on the run, however, and behind perfect interference went over to make the score 20-20. As there were only a few minutes left in the game, the final 1938 ROSTER Name Louis Abbruzzi 41 Robert Albanese 40 Robert Belislc 40 Raymond Bryant ’40 Bartolo Chiapinelli 41 Stuart Cooper ' 39 Anacletl.c De Cesare ' ll Rene Duranleau ' 40 Morris Fabricant ' 39 Maurice Flynn ' 41 Michael Franchuk ' 41 Lawrence S.

Again the big fellow came through and Rhode Island had won the game. It was a heart-breaker for Connecticut to lose, but it was a glorious victory for Rhode Island, truly indicative of its never-say-die spirit. The whole team deserves credit for the victory, so there will be no attempt to point out the individual stars. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 19. RHODE ISLAND 7 In the last game of the season, Rhode Island made another valiant but futile attempt at victory. It was a night game played at Cranston Stadium before a crowd of 12,000. Rhode Island was first to score, pushing over their first touchdown in the first period. P. C. came back to score two in the second period, however, and added a third in the final stanza while R. I. was standing still. After a 52-yard march down the field, the first R. I. marker resulted directly from a Duranleau-Robblee pass, which covered 23 yards. Warner Keaney con- verted the extra point to make the score 7-0. The second period soon set up a P. C. score, however, as a Rhode Island fumble was recovered by the Friars on the Rams’ one-yard line. ’Red” McKinnon, Friar fullback, then scored, but the placement failed and R. I. still led 7-6. Another Friar goal, late in the same period, coming after a sustained drive down the field, together with a successful conversion, placed Providence ahead 13-7. - 269 - I I INDIVIDUAL SCORING- 1938 FOOTBALL Player Louis J.

The typical Ram attack of long passes and spread formation took them to the Friar 21-yard line, but here they were checked and from then on could not seem to click. I he last P. C. touchdown came in the last period after the longest scoring advance of the game. Sixty-six yards were covered on a steady march which placed the ball in a position for Carter, right halfback, to circle end and make the tally. Again P. C. failed to make the conversion. Duke Abbruzzi was completely bottled up. but still proved to be the R. I. ’s ace ground gainer along with Franchuk, McNamara, and Duranleau. In the line capable and noteworthy work was done by Ed Petro, Capt. Jim Magee, Morris Fabricant, and Bub Whaley. The rest of the team also deserves credit for playing a losing but fighting game. This game marked the end of the collegiate career of six Rhode Island players. Wearing Rhode Island uniforms for the last time were Capt. Jim Magee. Al PuIIano. Russ Campbell, Bob Belisle, and AI Robblee. Stu Cooper, who had been seriously injured in the first week of practice in September, watched the game from the stands. - 270 - FRESHMAN FOOTBALL TEAM Date October 1 October 8 October 15 October 20 October 29 November 5 Opponent Marianapolis Northeastern Brown Providence College Boston IJniversity Connecticut State Place Kingston Kingston Providence Providence Boston Storrs R.

Winning their first three games, the Frosh seemed headed for a very successfid season but struck a snag in their last three games, thus breaking even. Two close decisions were dropped, one to Boston University Frosh 12-6. and one to Connecticut Frosh, Id- 13. The worse defeat of the season was suffered at the hands of the Providence College freshmen, who were the only team to hold the Ramlets scoreless. One of the best games on the schedule was the Brown game. The freshmen showed their true worth in this game and came out on the long end of a 6-0 score. Cure and Davis both played exceptional football in this game and gave promises of later development. As a team, the freshmen were characterized as a fighting unit and no game was won or lost without every man trying his hardest every minute of the game. In the light of next year s varsity, it appears that a few of the more promising freshmen will be able to add both weight and ability to the team. Among those who will be in the midst ol the battle for varsity positions when next fall rolls around are: Armand Cure. James Duff, Albert Carpenter, Deervitz. Allen Cornell, Earl Swanson, Robert Davis, and William McNally. - 272 - I 1 Basketball J ARIOUS sports are distinguished by various nicknames. We have heard of the king ol sports, of the sport of sports, of the sport recognized as the national pastime.” and various others. If we of Kingston were to designate a sport as “our sport.” it seems very probable that it would he basketball. I he Senior questionnaire has shown basketball to be the favorite among the graduating members, and judging by the support granted to the basketball team throughout the year, there are many more who would vouch for it as “our sport.” Our four years have been especially eventful in the field of basketball. We have seen individual Rhode Island players break records and receive commendation from noted experts, and we have seen Rhode Island teams gain national recognition and public esteem. The 1939 Grist wishes to take the opportunity ol expressing the pride with which all members of Rhode Island State College, both undergraduates and alumni, regard their basketball team. - 273 - - 274 - 5 I 1938-1939 VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM RECORD January 5 January 7 January 21 February 8 February 1 1 February 13 February 18 February 22 February 23 February 23 March I March I March 7 Team Alumni Lowell Textile Arnold College American International New Hampshire Northeastern University of Maine Providence College St. Anselm ' s Connecticut Stale Massachusetts Slate Springfield College Tufts College Northeastern University of Maine New I lampshire Connecticut State Brown Providence College Worcester Tech Score Place R.

Among the alumni returning to play were: J. Messina. F. Keaney, Wright. J. M. Martin. J. F. Martin, Applin. Fabricant, Tasbjian, and Federico. Many of the old-timers showed some of their past form, and although winning by a comfortable margin, the varsity was hard pressed in many parts of the game. J. F. Martin, who was ALL-New England forward while playing for State, starred for the Alumni and was high scorer for the night with 20 points. Jaworslci and Conley led the Rams with 18 and 17 points respectively. Ed Tasbjian also scored 18 points while Pctro and Keaney played well for the Rams, scoring 12 and 10 points respectively. RHODE ISLAND 69. LOWELL TEXTILE 33 The second game of the season presented a rather slow and sluggish contest in which Rhode Island coasted to victory. After a very slow start, it was not long before the Rams hit their stride and began swishing them through the hoop. The second half was comparatively faster and as R. I. was quite a bit ahead, the reserves were sent in and still kept the score rolling. Conley and Jaworski again were high scorers with 17 points each. Ed Petro showed mid-season form in his back court work and managed to garner 1 1 points in the bargain. - 276 - I RHODE ISLAND 84. ARNOLD 41 The Arnold game saw Capt. Jaworski sel a new Rhode Island State College scoring mark of 44 points. Although the score prevented interest in the game itself, the fairly good sized crowd that witnessed the contest was kept on edge as Jaworski flipped the ball through the hoop with ease and regularity. Even when the reserves were sent in later in the game. Arnold could not stop the Rhody march, hut did concentrate on Jaworski and succeeded in bottling him up during the last few minutes of the game. Conley still continued to show promise in this game scoring 19 points. RHODE ISLAND 75. AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL 34 The Rams had little difficulty in making their string four straight and continued their whirlwind pace against the American International five of Springfield. 1 he R. I. quintet took command of the game right from the start and left little doubt as to the outcome. Capt. Jaworski added considerably to his scoring total by netting 32 points. Conley also kept his average up with 19 points. The highest man for A. 1. C., Barzana. collected 10 points. RHODE ISLAND 80. NEW HAMPSHIRE 45 Rhody scored its fifth consecutive victory of the year over a fighting but inexpe- rienced New Hampshire team. This victory was the Rams’ 17th consecutive victory in the New England Conference. In the first part of the game the Wildcats matched baskets with the R. I. five, but by the half-way mark, the Rams had pulled out 42-26. In the second half they continued to increase their lead and soon the reserves were sent in. Jaworski scored 33 points and was aided by Keaney and Conley. - 277 - Rl IODE ISLAND 51. BROWN 42 I I In one of the most bitterly fought contests ever played in Rodman Hall, the Rams defeated their foremost rival. Brown University, 51-42 in the first game of the annual two-game series. Rhody ' s sixth consecutive victory was not an easy one as the play opened at a fast pace and was exceptionally rough throughout. Four players left the game because of the four-foul ride, and one player was forced to leave as a result of an ankle injury. The game opened at a furious pace, but more than a minute passed before Person sent the Bruins into the lead with a shot from the foul line. Keaney evened the count but two more Brown goals placed the Bears in front again. It was then that Petro came through with two sensational shots from far outside the foul line. From then on Rhody was never headed although Brown came within one basket of lying the game up on several occasions. The intensity of play and the spirit of the crowd were greatly increased at the beginning of the second half when Platt, the Bruin center, scored a basket for Rhode Island. The two centers had lined up facing the wrong baskets and right after the tap. Platt scored a basket, ostensibly for Brown but actually for Rhode Island. With live minutes still to go, Petro and then Jaworski were banished from the game on louls. Fine defensive work by Conley and Keaney and the other State men kept Brown at bay. Warner Keaney was the high scorer for the evening with 19 points; Jaworski was held to ten points by close guarding. Harry Platt, the Bruin ace. led the Brown attack with 17 points. - 278 - RHODE ISLAND 79.

After each team had scored a basket to start the ball rolling. Slate look over the lead and never relinquished it. Although the Rams won easily, the game was a good one. and R. 1. was forced many times to stave off repeated threats by the Huskies. Capt. Jaworski shook olf his temporary slump and shared scoring honors for the night with Bob Gurney of the Huskies. Each garnered 25 points. Conley and Keaney closely followed these two with 24 and 21 points respectively. RHODE ISLAND 79, MAINE 46 Scoring almost at will over a bewildered Maine five. State scored its eighth vic- tory of the season, and its third New England Conference victory. From the very beginning of the game. State opened up full-fire and completely outplayed their opponents. During the first ten minutes. R. I. built up the impressive lead of 26-2. Maintaining his exceptionally high scoring average, Capt. Jaworski netted 26 points for his evening’s work. Kent led the Maine attack with 13 points. - 279 - I RHODE ISLAND 57. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 45 As usual, the annual P. C. -Rhode Island game attracted considerable interest and a sizeable crowd. Although P. C. had not been rated very highly this year, it was known that the Friars would be sure to put up the staunchest of fights against R. I.: the Friars did not disappoint as they played one of their bes t games of the season. 1 railing by 10 points, the Rams by virtue of a third period spurt came from behind to defeat their intra state rivals in the rough game played at the Rhode Island Auditorium. Twenty-six fouls were called against the Providence team, and the Rams made good on 15 of these, supplying them with their margin of victory. There were many faithful Rhode Islanders who thought that Rhody was going to lose this one as the game wore on and the score didn t change, but towards the end after two P. C. men had been eliminated on fouls. R. I. began to click and pulled the game out of the bag. Jaworski was again high scorer with 20 points, followed by Conley with 12 and Caprielian with 10. The fine defensive work of Warner Keaney was outstanding as he played both forward and guard during the game. He scored 9 points and was a tower of strength under the defensive backboard. Kwasnewski and Dense made good use of their superior height and caused the Rams no little trouble in getting the ball off both backboards. Kwasnewski scored 15 points to lead P. C. s attack, while Deuse scored 10. - 280 - I RHODE ISLAND 86. ST. ANSELM 60 Maintaining a terrifically fast pace lliat tlie undefeated five of St. Anselm ' s could not match. State flashed to its 10th consecutive victory of the season. Conley led the State scorers with 28 points, being closely followed by Jaworski with 25 and Keaney with 18. In this game, Jaworski scored his 250th point of the season with still 1 1 games left to play. The work of Retro and Caprielian in the back court was brilliant, each contributing many sparkling plays. For the visitors, Cullen and Blais showed up best. RHODE ISLAND STATE 76. CONNECTICUT STATE 62 Taking the lead at the start and never relinquishing it. the Rams defeated the Nutmeggers of Connecticut State 76-62 at Storrs for their 11th straight victory of the season. At the half. Rhody led 46-19, and although Connecticut made a spirited rally in the second half. R. I. was able to protect the lead it had built up. Conley led the Rhode Island scoring with 22 points and Jaworski netted 18 and Keaney 19. Donnelly. Koch, and Yusiewicz led the Connecticut attack. This game was the 20lh straight in New England Conference competition and the 1 6th straight over Connecticut State. RHODE ISLAND 54, MASSACHUSETTS STATE 37 Winning easily, the Rams evened an old score with the Aggies who were one of the two teams to beat them last year. By winning this game, the Rams also ran up the longest winning streak in the history of basketball at the college. 21 consecutive games. With Jaworski being guarded by two men most of the night. Conley and Keaney broke loose to lead Rhody with 17 and 16 points respectively. - 281 - I RHODE ISLAND 67. SPRINGFIELD 49 Featuring a 40-point scoring splurge by Captain Jaworski. Rhode Island romped to an easy win over the Springfield gymnasts. Jaworski was in the best of form, dropping spectacular baskets from all points on the lloor. The whole team worked smoothly and looked at their best in capturing their 13th straight win over Springfield. Springfield threatened in the opening minutes but was unable to match the Keaneymen after the first seven minutes. Hettler and Werner were the leading point-gatherers for the gymnasts. TUFTS 62. RHODE ISLAND 50 Scoring the biggest upset in New England college basketball. Tufts University, led by its ace center. Charlie Tibbs, handed the Rams their first defeat in the 14 games of the current season. Using his 6 ft. 4 in. height to the best advantage. Tibbs scored 37 points, more than half the points scored by the entire State team. Jaworski, definitely not up to his usual form, was held to 10 points and forced out of the game on fouls early in the second half. Keaney also went out via the foul route, and at this stage it was apparent that Rhody was in for its first taste of defeat for the season. State continued to light hard but was not able to overcome the Jumbo’s lead. Tibbs was the outstanding man on the floor and was ably assisted by his team- mates Pechinx and Jenkins. Petro s heroic efforts, both offensively and defensively, kept Rhode Island from suffering a worse defeat than 12 points. He scored 9 points from his guard position and was brilliant defensively.

NORTHEASTERN 59 Rhody hit the victory trail again with a 71-59 win over Northeastern in a game played at Boston. Slow in starting, Rhody did not roll until the late stages of the game and had to put on the typical Ram spurt to gain the victory. Capl. Jaworslci led the Rams with 2 6 points and Conley and Keaney made 22 and 17 respectively. Tourcey and Gleason with 24 and 14 respectively were the outstanding players for the Boston team. RHODE ISLAND 100. MAINE 56 The first game of a three-day road trip saw Rhode Island trounce the University of Maine at Orono Ly a score of 100-56 in a game featuring the winter sports carnival at that institution. It was the first time in the history of basketball at Maine that 100 points had been scored in a basketball game. The State attack was led by Jaworski with 37 points. Conley with 29 points, and Keaney with 14 points. Burgoin, Curtin, and Arbor played well for the home team. RHODE ISLAND 81. NEW HAMPSHIRE 59 For the second time in two days, the Rams, clicking smoothly, won an easy victory, this time over the University of New Hampshire at Durham. Scoring in the double brackets for Rhode Island were: Conley, 24: Jaworski, 21: Petro. 14; and Keaney. 10. New Hampshire’s attack centered around Cryans and Plante. - 283 - I I CONNECTICUT STATE 68, RHODE ISLAND 67 In a game that was an invitation to hysteria, the Rams suffered their second defeat of the season by the slim margin of one point, bowing 68-67 to a rejuvenated Connecticut State team. Running into a team that was traveling in high, just having come into its own, Rhody had to fight an uphill battle all of the way. Connecticut took the lead midway hrough the first period and R. I. was unable to catch the speedy Nulmeggers. The game started with both teams trading baskets for a spell, but soon Connecticut began to forge ahead. At half time the Storrsmen held a 36-31 lead. The second half proved just as exciting and as nerve wracking as the first. The visitors increased their lead to ten points soon after the tap. State fought back valiantly and many times it seemed as if it couldn’t be stopped. With little more than a minute left to play the Kcaneymen found themselves in the hole 68-59. Fighting gamely, the Rams extended themselves in an effort to reach the Nutmeggers. Conley tossed in a field goal. Jawors ki followed with two from the corner, and Caprielian dropped in another. As the crowd was almost going into hysterics, the final gun sounded and Connecticut had won by one point. Johnny Yusiewicz and Bob Donnelly played the biggest part in securing R. I. ' s downfall. T he former scored 29 points and the latter 23 points. Brooks was the outstanding defense man for the Nutmeggers. For the Rams. Ed Petro s brilliant work was the shining spot of the evening. Time and again Petro s long-toms kept the Rams within striking distance of the visitors. Big Ed scored 18 points to lead the home team in scoring.

RHODE ISLAND 37 The Rams received their second setback within five days and their third defeat of the season when the Brown Bears, who played a brilliant all-around game, defeated their traditional rivals 53 lo 37 before a packed house of 2.200 fans at Marvel Gymnasium. The victory was Brown’s 15th of the season and ably compensated for their defeat on January 27 at the hands of the Keaneymen in Kingston. It was the Bruin’s equally strong offense and defense combined with fine team play at all times that gave them the lead shortly after the opening of the first hall and allowed them to keep the same throughout the game. Conley opened the scoring with a field goal right after the face-off, but immediately Brown sank two field goals and put themselves in the lead to stay. 1 hey steadily built up their lead until at the half, they had the substantial lead of 30-18. With the opening of the second period, the Bruins continued to pile up their points and had placed the score at 37-18 before Rhody could get into the game. With ten minutes to go. the Bruins had made the score 43-26. and in the last few minutes added five more field goals to insure their victory. It was a sad affair for all the R. I. rooters present as it was obvious that Rhody just couldn’t get rolling. Keaney. Conley, and Jaworski all lailed in their many attempts to pul Rhode Island in the scoring. Jaworski was high man for the Rams with ten points; Retro, scoring nine points, played a splendid floor game. For the Bruins. Platt and Wilson were the outstanding individuals in their floor work although they were held to nine and five points respectively. Padden with 1 1 points and Person with 10 were the high men for Brown. - 285 - RHODE ISLAND 86. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 60 Displaying their superiority over the visitors for a second time, the Rams broke a two-game losing streak by defeating Providence College with a scoring spree that netted 86 points. The Friars led ea rly in the game but once the Rams began to roll they rapidly surpassed the visitors and were never overtaken once they had gained the lead. Chet Jaworski saw his chances of beating Luisetti s one-year scoring record of 465 points stopped temporarily when he had to leave the game on folds with eight minutes to play. At this point he had scored 28 points and needed only three more to pass the national record of most points scored in one season. Conley and Keancy were also high scorers with 21 anil 18. Deuse led the P. C. attack with 23 points and both Murphy and Barnini did commendable work in the backcourt. WORCESTER 64. RHODE ISLAND 61 In the final game of the season, the Rhode Island Rams went down to defeat in the most exciting and thrill-packed game of the year. The outcome of the game was in doubt until the end with the lead switching so often that the spectators had no chance to relax. I he height on the Worcester team was too great for Rhode Island to get by. The Engineers controlled both backboards the entire game and their overhead pass- ing attack was almost unstoppable. Consequently, though they fought their hearts out. the Rams had to admit defeat. Jaworski. scoring 14 points before he was banished on fouls, broke the national scoring record for a single season, setting up a new mark of 475 points as compared with the former record of 465 as held by Hank Luisetti of Stanlord. Jaworski was given a tremendous ovation as he finished the last game of his brilliant career at Slate. Caprielian also played his last game for Stale and received a fine hand from the crowd. Others on the squad w ho completed their playing careers with this game were: Donald Graham. Victor Tkacs, and John La Castro.

Capt. Jaworslii, Caprielian, Conley - 287 - RESUME OF FRESHMAN BASKETBALL SEASON The Rhode Island freshman basketball team proved itself another fine example of the superiority of Keaney-eoached teams. Losing only one game in eleven starts, and that by a single basket, the Ramlets displayed a fine attack which wore down every team they met. Stanley Modzelewski was the outstanding scorer of the team and showed prom- ises of stepping into the position left vacant on the varsity by the graduation of Chet Jaworski, Rhode Island ' s national scoring champion. Billy Rutledge closely followed Modzelewski in scoring and also promises to be a big help to the varsity next year in general all-around team play. In the back court. Armand Cure was the standout, and it is expected that he will take over where Caprielian leaves off. Other members of the squad who made creditable showings were: Pournaras, Obradovich, Lownds. Davis, Martin, Pansa, and Johnson. In scoring 288 points Modzelewski broke the old freshman record of 209 points as set by Jaworski three years ago. The highest total “Stutz” made in one game was 34, making that in the Providence College game at the Auditorium. His lowest number of points in any one game was 13, that being against the Bryant College team in Providence. One other feature of the season was the game with Thomaston I ligh. 1 his game brought father’s team against son’s, as Thomaston I ligh is coached by Frank Keaney, Jr. Keaney the younger was very much impressed by the friendly and sportsmanlike spirit prevailing on the campus and. although losing, considered the game very much of a success. I Truck A S is shown in succeeding pages, the subject of track has many different aspects. There are cross country teams, relay teams, outdoor track teams, and indoor track teams. All are similar but still bearing some dis- tinction making an individual name appropriate. Considering track in the sense of promoting friendship and in the sense of providing memories for future years, we find that it is not lacking in either. Surely there is a strong friendship instilled into the members of any or all of the teams mentioned; they are working individually hut col- lectively for a common purpose. Surely, too, we have in four years time accumulated memories directly attributable to the existence and functioning of the various track teams. It is fitting, therefore, that a section of our yearbook should be given in recognition of the work of the trackmen. - 289 - - 290 - I I 1938 VARSITY TRACK TEAM SCHEDULE Date Meet Place April 14 Brown Providence April 21 Connecticut Storrs April 30 N.

We have now come to the stage where we expect a good team. and. in getting one, accept it as such without too much consideration. It is hard work on the part of both athlete and coach that makes a good track team and in recognizing the true worth of our teams here at State, let us give full credit where it is due. The 1939 Grist takes this opportunity to show its appreciation of the effort that has made possible better and belter Rhode Island track teams. The 1938 team continued the reputation built up in the past and made an excel- lent showing against the best in the nation both individually and as a team. For the second consecutive season, the Rams remained undefeated in dual competition and retained their New England Intercollegiate trophy. Some of the highlights of the season were marked by the performances of Irving Folswartshny. Stanley Holt. William Eckhart, and Eldward Singsen. Folswartshny, representing the U. S. in Japan in 1937. threw the 16-Ib. hammer and the 35-Ib. weight in which he was national champion. Stan Holt performed in the 880-yd. event and in the mile. The two-mile event in the New England Inter- collegiate meet was won in record breaking time by Bill Eckhart. who traversed the distance minus one of his shoes and socks on the last five laps. Ed Singsen proved he could stay up there with the best by vaulting 13 ft. 6 in. on several occasions. There are many other outstanding performances that could be pointed out, but the few mentioned will suffice to give an idea of the true calibre of the 1938 team. - 292 - I I RHODE ISLAND 91 % 3 . BROWN 43 % Paced by Folswartshny, Dana Conley, and Stan Holt, Coacb Toolell s strong track forces swept to a brilliant victory in tbe first dual meet of tbe season, easily downing tbe Bears of Brown University in Providence. Tbe finely conditioned, well-balanced Ram contingent captured all of tbe 15 first places and placed 1-2-3 in tbe two-mile, pole vault, and 220-yd. low burdles. Folswartshny set a new Brown Field record in tbe hammer, throwing the 16- pounder for 176 ft. 11% in. Conley turned in two excellent performances in tbe hurdle races, while Stan Flolt did double duty running the half and the mile. Both Holt and Conley were first in their respective races. Other first place winners were: Carl Morrill in the 440-yd.; Bill Eckhart in the two-mile, setting a new Rhode Island varsity record of 9.48; Frank Lord in the 220-yd. dash; Walter Gladding in the javelin: and Ed Singsen in the pole vault. RHODE ISLAND HO ' a, CONNECTICUT STATE 24 ' 2 Taking all but one first place, the R. I. track team overwhelmed Connecticut State at Storrs. Tbe Nutmeggers’ only first place was in tbe running broad jump. Folswartshny took the scoring honors for R. I. with first places in the hammer throw and shot put and second place in the discus behind Danny Aldrich. Gil Blount was the other double winner, taking the high hurdles and 100-yd. dash. Holt in the mile, Morrill in the 440, Clarke in the 880, Lord in the 220, Conley in the high hurdles, Eckhart in the two-mile, Singsen in the pole vault, Larkin in the high jump, Gladding in the javelin, and Bloom (C.) in the broad jump were tbe other first place winners. - 293 - I I RHODE ISLAND 88. MANHATTAN 47 Sweeping six events and placing a man second or better in every event, the powerful Ram team swamped the Jaspers of Manhattan College to keep their undefeated record clean. Five track and field marks were broken and one was tied as the Tootellmen rode to victory. From the opening event in which the Ram hurdlers swept all three places, the Rams gave little consideration to the Jaspers piling up the points in every event. Manhattan placed men in the first places in the mile run. the 440, the two-mile, the 880, the 220. the broad jump, and the high jump. All other events were won by Rhode Island. RHODE ISLAND 106‘ a. NEW HAMPSHIRE 28 ' 2 The Rams set too fast a pace for the New Hampshire Wildcats and consequently turned them hack 106 ' 2 - 28 ' 2 . Folswartshny again starred in the weight events, sweeping first place in the shot, discus, and hammer. In the latter event. Shorty set a new field record of 165 feet. Ed Singsen distinguished himself by setting a new field record in the pole vault of 12 ft. 10 3 A in. Dana Conley swept both the high and low hurdle events while Bill Eckhart again showed his supremacy in the two- mile race. Toolell’s men were far superior in all the field events in which they swept three and placed at least two men in all others. NEW ENGLAND RELAYS Capturing first place in four events and setting new meet records in the process, the track team turned in one of the best performances ol the second annual New England Relay held at Harvard. Displaying a wealth of power in running, the team garnered a first in the two-mile and shuttle relay, second in the two-mile relay, and third in the Class A half-mile relay. - 294 - Irv Folswartshny took his specialty, the hammer-throw, with a heave of 173 ft. 4% in. to set a new meet record. Ed Singsen pole vaulted 13 ft. 3 Vs in. to set a new record in that event. Bill Eckhart set the third record by finishing the two-mile race in 9:33, while the last of R. l.’s new records was made by the shuttle relay team of Senecal, Blount. Hogg, and Conley. N. E. I. C. A. A. A. A strong R. I. S. C. track team stood off the challenge of four talented rivals to annex the 52nd New England Intercollegiate track and field title by scoring 29% points in seven events and setting three new records. Bill Eckhart again won the two-mile event, Folswartshny set a new N. E. I. C. record in the hammer-throw, Walter Gladding and Ed Singsen performed notably in the javelin and pole vault respectively. Other point winners were Stan Holt, Aldrich in the discus, Barnes in the javelin, and Hammarlund and Hedberg in the pole vault. I. C. A. A. A. A. Picking up where they left off in triumph three years previously, Southern California s mighty Trojans put on a preview of their track prowess by placing thirteen men in the trials of the I. C. 4A meet. “Shorty” Folswartshny, Rhody’s champion hammer-thrower, tossed the 16-lb. ball 178 ft. 9% in., 14 ft. ahead of his nearest rival.

They defeated such rivals as the Brown Cubs, Connecticut freshmen. Westerly and Cranston High varsity teams, and the La Salle Academy aggregation. The team boasted several starlettes that seem destined to become bright stars in Rhody’s track firmament. Bob Black tied the freshman record for the 220-yard dash, covering the distance in 22 seconds to share the record with Alden Robblee. Dunbar Young finished the season undefeated in the 100- yard dash as well as breaking the freshman broad jump record to become title-holder with a leap of 22 ft. 6 in. Young is also co-holder of the freshman high jump record, tying George Bainton ' s record of 5 ft. 10 in. Jim Jacques, the work horse of the team, was an ace timber-topper as well as a good javelin thrower, broad jumper, and dash man. Bob Dixon broke the record in the 880 or half-mile, acquiring the title with 1 :59.8 performance. Lastly, comes Lester Nichols, who would have been the likely suc- cessor to the invincible Bill Eckharl had he not left school. Nichols annexed the mile title in traversing the route in 4:43.2. One other record performance that may be mentioned here was that of the one- mile relay team of Young, Gosling, Dixon, and Black. These four accomplished the creditable time of 3:27.4. - 297 - VARSITY CROSS COUNTRY TEAM . t to Riq il: Condi Tootcll. Creech. Clarke. Hall. Tereshkow. Villalico. Lyons.

Ted Clarke gained first place for Rhode Island by crossing the finish line in the fast time of 22 minutes and 59 seconds. Clarke led practically all the way over the four-mile grind. John McCormick finished 100 yards behind Clarke to take second place after fighting off Drevitch, the Husky ace. Rhode Island took first, second, fifth, sixth, and seventh places to score the win. CONNECTICUT 18, RHODE ISLAND 38 Meeting a Connecticut team which was undefeated and which had scored one point victories over both Northeastern and M. I. T.. Rhode Island lost its second meet of the season. On the basis of its previous showing against Northeastern, Rhody was favored to win but met with quite an upset. The Connecticut course was much shorter than the Kingston trail and therefore led to comparatively fast times. N. E. I. C. A. A. A. Rhode Island relinquished its hold on the New England Intercollegiate crown when it finished in eighth place after having won the title two successive years.

Charles Tingley was the outstanding individual finishing firsl in all the dual meets and winning the New England Intercollegiate meet. In the early fall trials.

Macintosh, Coach Erwin - 301 - I 1 RESUME OF VARSITY RELAY SEASON The indoor track team completed the winter season with one of the best records it has ever made. Coach Tootell has been consistently developing relay teams which will compare with the best in the East, and this year proved to be no exception. I he mile relay team won three races out ol eight and the two mile relay team won one out of three, both against the best competition offered by the various meets. In practically every indoor meet. Rhode Island was represented in the feature relay of the evening and in no case did it make a poor showing. The Rams made notable victories against such outstanding mile relay teams as Manhattan, Boston College, and Villanova. The two mile team made an excellent showing at the beginning of the season, but it had to be sacrificed for the mile team and individual events since Stan Holt and Bob Dixon both doubled up. Holt anchoring and Dixon running the third leg on each team. In the first meet of the season. I lie Prout games, the one mile relay team was matched against Colgate, the two mile team against New York University. Manhattan, and Yale, and the B mile team against Holy Cross, Boston College, and New Hampshire. Only the mile team won its race, but the two mile team in finishinu third behind New York University and Manhattan, and the B team in finishing third behind Holy Cross and Boston College, both made creditable showings. Only the two mile relay team competed in the Millrose games. Again Rhode Island took third place in a close race which saw North Carolina as the winner. The B.A.A. meet produced what proved lo be one ol the closest races of the season. I lie mile relay team was pitted against New York University and Manhattan and although R. I. finished third all three runners were within a yard of each other at the finish, proving that State could match with the better class of teams. The two mile relay team was the winner of its race having as its primary opponent, I loly Cross. In the Knights of Columbus meet in Providence the mile team truly proved its mettle by defeating Manhattan. Individual competition saw Dunbar Young take second place in his heat in the 40-yard dash. Ted Clarke take first place in his heat in the 1000-yard run, and George Hammarlund and Ralph Hedberg take third and fourth place respectively in the pole vault. As Earl Meadows, world s record holder, had participated in the latter event. Hammarlund and Hedberg received second and third place respectively in the consideration for the New England Championships. In the N. Y. A. C. meet, the mile relay team once more showed its worth in this event; the Rams won their race having as competition the formidable teams of Boston College and Villanova. The two mile team did not compete. The V ' . F. W. meet proved a snag for R. I. but in the light of the competition offered, the defeat suffered at this time cannot be considered as at all humiliating. The “A " milers lost to the relay team of the B. A. A. The TV team also competed in this meet running up against M. I. T. and Tufts. Although the team had to be satisfied with third place, they were running against varsity first teams and they broke the record, by four seconds, of any Rhode Island “B mile relay team. Dixon and Holt both made creditable show ings in the N. A. A. U. meet. They both took fourth place in their respective heats in the 600-yard event, and Holt took third place in his heat of the 1000-yard event. The mile relay team did not qualify in their first heat, but it is necessary lo note the race they lost. They were matched with Fordham. 69th Regiment, and Holy Cross; in winning the event Fordham turned in the remarkable time of 3 minutes, 18 and .7 seconds. In the I. C. A. A. A. A. meet the Rhode Island team placed higher than any other R. I. team has succeeded in doing. They scored 11 1 5 points to gain sixth place, as compared with seventh place last year. The points were earned as follows: Dixon ran third in the 600-ynrcI run being nosed out of second place by inches but still beating the world’s record holder. Jim Herbert of N. Y. U.; Holt ran fourth in the 1000; Hedberg tied for third place in the pole vault; William Barlow and Hugh Torchia placed third and fourth respectively in the 35 lb. weight throw. The mile relay team did not qualify. Dunbar Young, who had previously run a close second to Kenneth Clapp of Brown in the 40-yard dash at the K. of C. meet in Providence in record equaling time, just missed placing by getting sixth place. In the final meet of the season, the K. of C. meet at New York, the mile team ran second to Villanova. heating St. John’s. The mile relay team, which turned in a lime of 3:23.5 as compared lo the college record of 3:23. turned in by Conley. I loll, Morrill and Hines last year, was composed of Frank Ford, George Cuddy. Robert Dixon, and Stanley Holt. I he “B” team consisted of Young. Gosling. Turndahl. and Black. The two mile team had John McCormick. Ted Clarke, Dixon, and Holt as its members. - 302 - I FRESHMAN RELAY TEAM The freshman relay team did not have a very active season, but in the few meets that were run, the freshmen proved themselves worthy of wearing the blue and white. On January 28, the team participated in the Prout Games in Boston and finished second behind the Brown freshman team. The only other meet of the season was that at the Millrose Games in New York held on the fourth of February. Again the Ramlets finished second behind Brown. In both meets there were three teams entered in the race in which Rhode Island finished second. The members of the team were John Erhardt, Bob Gammons, James Dearden, and Thomas Bagshaw.

Holt - 304 - Baseball I HE class of 39 in the course of its college career has not perhaps taken - ■ as great an interest in baseball as it has in other sports. Nevertheless, a few of us have been ardent fans of the game, and judging from the Senior questionnaire, baseball has been and still is the favorite sport of many. If we stop to analyze the sport of baseball and look at it from various angles, we discover that there is a unique spirit that is concomitant to the game itself. It is a spirit of elation created and promoted by the so-called baseball chatter which has become an integral part of the game. Significant, too, is the fact that the spirit noted above rarely has the tinges of respite that are prominent at times in other sports. - 305 - - 306 - I I 1938 VARSITY BASEBALL SCHEDULE Date Team Place R. 1 Oppone April 12 Brown Kingston 6 0 April 16 Northeastern Kingston 5 1 April 20 Boston College Kingston 2 3 April 25 Boston College Boston 2 6 April 29 Maine Kingston 13 3 April 30 Providence College Kingston 2 1 May 4 Arnold College Kingston 7 0 May 7 New Hampshire Kingston 9 10 May 10 Northeastern Boston 5 3 May 1 1 Boston University Boston 6 3 May 14 Connecticut Storrs 0 2 May 17 Holy Cross Worcester 7 2 May 18 Worcester.

BROWN 0 I lie R. I. nine succe ssfully launched its bid for the state intercollegiate champion- ship by defeating the Brown nine 6-0 in the opening game of tbc season. 1 be game, played at Kingston in a raw. cold wind, was a pitcher s duel until the seventh inning when the Bruin defense crumpled and six Rams crossed the plate. Ray McCulloch, a Brown sophomore making his baseball debut, pitched excel- lent ball for six innings. Ben Sano relieved McCulloch and pitched to one batter only before he gave way to Emerson Mowry, who finished the game for the Bears. 1 he veteran George Hines pitched the entire nine innings for R. I., allowing only six hits and granting no walks. RHODE ISLAND 5. NORTHEASTERN 1 Improved hitting and errorless fielding brought the R. I. Rams their second vic- tory of the season in as many starts. Although both Northeastern and R. I. made the same number of bits, steadiness afield and timeliness of hits accounted for the Ram’s triumph. BOSTON COLLEGE 3. RHODE ISLAND 2 B. C. gave R. I. its first defeat of the baseball season by using two pitchers and capitalizing on an error. Behind 2-0 in the sixth. R. I. knotted the count at 2 all, but in tbe ninth inning B. C. came through as the first team since 1936 to leave Kingston with the laurel of victory. BOSTON COLLEGE 6. RHODE ISLAND 2 I he R. I. Rams, after an auspicious start, bowed for the second time to the B. C. Eagles. Big Bill Butler starred for R. I. by cracking out a long home run in the second inning to score Irv Fay who had doubled, thus accounting for R. I.’s only runs of tbe game. RHODE ISLAND 13. MAINE 3 R. L, batting to advantage and taking all opportunities to score provided by tbe many Maine errors, actually bad this game won by tbe fourth inning. It was the first game in which R. 1. showed any hitting prowess at all and this, combined with brilliant fielding as evidenced by three double plays, showed R. I. to be a team of possibilities. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 2. RHODE ISLAND 1 Capitalizing on a first inning error, the fighting Friars downed the Rams 2-1 at Kingston in the lirst game of the home and home two-game series. This victory placed Providence in first place in the intra state c ollege standing. The victory was the lourth for the Friars and the second for the rangy Friar pitcher. Joe Kwasniewski. George Hines allowed but seven bits and went the entire seven innings. Notable work afield was done by Cbet Jaworski and Irv Fay. R. I. again sank into a batting lethargy securing only four hits, made by Rene Duranleau, Bob Albanese, Cliff Pace, and George Hines. RHODE ISIAND 7. ARNOLD 0 Worthy of note in the Arnold game was the work of Bill Fitch. I le allowed only five hits and scattered them over as many innings. This combined with a revival of bitting strength secured another R. I. victory. NEW HAMPSHIRE 10. RHODE ISLAND 9 A right field double scoring a man from second base broke up this weird 1 1 -inning game, giving N. H. tbe edge by 10-9. N. H. was forced to use three pitchers to go the distance, but finally succeeded in handing R. I. its first defeat in two years ol New England Conference competition. RHODE ISLAND 5. NORTHEASTERN 3 By this victory, R. I. enhanced its c hances in the New England Conference, landing in second place behind Connecticut. The contest was the fastest ever played on Hunting Field, lasting only 1 hour and 34 minutes. RHODE ISLAND 6. BOSTON UNIVERSITY 3 This victory was gained when Bill hitch took up the pitching burden with the score 3-3 in the fourth inning. Fitch proceeded to pitch superb ball and held B. U. at bay. allowing only three scattered hits and permitting no man to reach beyond second base. - 308 - CONNECTICUT STATE 2. RHODE ISLAND 0 Defeat at this time was especially harmful because it marked the first defeat suffered hv Bill Fitch in five starts, and because the winning runs were scored in doubtful fashion. Two runs were scored when a high fly came down in an apple tree in right field, naturally preventing any attempt at a catch. RHODE ISLAND 7, HOLY CROSS 2 " It couldn’t happen here, ' they said, but it did. The highlight of the Ram baseball season was the defeat handed to pompous Holy Cross at Worcester. Going into the game with H. C. highly favored, the Rams played wide-awake ball and took advantage of every break. A big third inning producing five runs started them on their victory run. George Hines allowed but 10 well-scattered hits and was particularly strong in the pinches. Sensational fielding by Chet Jaworski and Irv Fay also contributed much towards victory. In the big third inning, Albanese was struck by a pitched ball. The next two batters. Babe Graham and Jaworski. started the hall rolling by hitting safely, and it was not until Rhode Island had scored five men that the fusilade stopped. RHODE ISLAND 9. WORCESTER TECH 5 Continuing their unbeatable performance of the day before, the Ram nine defeated the Worcester Tech team 9-5. The victory was credited to Zach Zachadnyk, diminutive infielder who was converted from a third-baseman to a pitcher by the ever-resourceful Coach Keaney. Despite three tallies in the second inning, Rhody still trailed 4-3, but Zachadnyk shut out the Tech men for eight out of nine innings allowing only four hits in the second for the total five runs garnered by Worcester. In the sixth, Rhody again assumed a threatening attitude at the plate and scored the winning runs. The most spectacular play of the day was Graham’s somersault dive after Carroll ' s liner. Boudreau starred for Tech at the plate with a single, double, and triple. BROWN 12. RHODE ISLAND 5 The Bruins won their first victory in the state series by defeating the Rams 12-5 at Aldrich Field in the second R. I. -Brown game of the season. This game paved the way for P. C.’s assumption of the intra state college championship. The primary reason for R. I.’s defeat in this game was listless fielding resulting in many errors and enabling Brown to score many unearned runs. HARVARD 4, RHODE ISLAND 1 Four runs in the opening frame was all the Harvard ball club could collect from R. I., but it was enough to spell defeat for the Rams. R. I. settled down to excellent playing after that but was unable to overcome the lead Harvard had acquired. RHODE ISLAND 7. NEW HAMPSHIRE 3 The R. I. Rams had little trouble in defeating the N. H. Wildcats in their second encounter of the season. Reinhalter, Fay, and Jaworski were the hitting stars of the game. MAINE 4. RHODE ISLAND 3 Maine ruined the championship hopes of R. I. when it defeated them 4-3 by a ninth-inning triple in the second game of the scries, played at Orono. The victory boosted the Maine nine into first place in the Conference standing and set R. I. back to third. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 14, RHODE ISLAND 6 Again the Friars had the Indian sign on R. I. and handed the Rams a severe beating in the last game of the season.

Small regattas are held at the invitation of the member clubs at which time the visiting clubs use the boats of the host thus eliminating the necessity of transporting boats. Progress was slow at first due to the difficulty of obtaining boats, but during the past year the college has made possible the purchase of two dinghies with the possibility of adding more in the near future. For the past three years the club has made a creditable show- ing in the annual regatta sponsored by M. I. T. in the Charles River Basin. At the present time the club hopes to develop itself so as to be able to participate in the Inter- national Dinghy Association and to invite neighboring colleges to a regatta. Commodore Chace R.

We have taken no little pride in the comparative success of the co-ed athletic teams at Rhode Island, and thus we are now prepared to pay all due respect to their accomplishments. We should like to think that at this time, the time of graduation, all thoughts of personalities and discriminations may be laid aside for the democratic conception of unification, that we may act, think, and live in a sense of unity. It is an ideal, perhaps; we think it also a practicability. - 315 - WOMEN’S FIELD HOCKEY TEAM First Row: Manager Wickham. Williams. Randall. Harvey. Sanborn. Thackeray. Williams. Waters. Tyler.

Selby - 317 - RESUME OF WOMEN’S FIELD HOCKEY AND BASKETBALL The co-cds, under the able tutelage of Coach Josephine Lees, continued to make a very impressive record in both field hockey and basketball. The 1939 Grist desires to recognize and appreciate the effort and ability ' shown by both coach and student in compiling such a record. One game under the previous year s schedule, the women s hockey’ team played eight games and lost two of them. The squad was replenished with an unusually large group of new recruits, and the total score of twenty-four points compared favorably with last year’s total of thirty-nine which was made in nine games. Drexel Institute was held to a tie thus compensating somewhat for last year s defeat, but Hofslra, a new addition to the schedule, gave the team its second and last defeat of the season. In 1936. Coach Joe Lees first took her team to New York, and in the succeeding years Pennsylvania was added to the schedule. Each year has been more successful, and it is hoped that in the future, faster and stronger teams from Rhode Island will extend their scope to more of the Eastern states. The high scorers for the past season were: Frances Randall. 15: Elizabeth Hoag, 9; and Ariadne Panleleiff, 7. Ariadne Panteleiff. Ruth Tyler. Rosalind Waters, and Barbara Williams were the longest players, each having played 390 minutes. For the first time since 1932 when the Rhode Island schedule included only Connecticut and Pembroke, the women’s basketball team concluded an undefeated and untied season. This year, with two trips to Boston and one to Philadelphia, Coach Lees proved that her style is unsurpassed in this section. The freshman turnout contributed several first-string players which strengthened the offense con- siderably. Upon graduation, the varsity ' will be left with only one member of the Senior class, but the two lower classes more than make up for this deficiency. The leading scorers for the season were: Elizabeth Benheimer. who broke the freshman scoring record with 98 points; Helen Szymkowicz. 68; and Jane Barlow. 62.

Prof. Tudor We have thought this to be the place for recognition of the work done by the cheer leaders because their presence and spirit has become a vital part of one and all of our sports and therefore cannot be attributed to any one of them. Many have been the times when the cheers and applause as led by the cheer leaders have con- tributed the necessary spark which has enabled a losing team to march on to victory. Such being the case, this group deserves all the support the student body may give it. Professor William Tudor has been responsible for the recent development and growth of the cheer leading group and should be commended for his interest and effort. During the past Hvo years we have not only witnessed an unprec edented growth in the organization but also an instillation of new spirit as exemplified by the new and original cheers and stunts. In passing, we hope that future support will warrant greater progress and interest. - 320 - I I Features ' I ' HE outline of college life remains fairly consistent regardless of class. The component parts that serve to fill in the outline, however, are necessarily different and stand apart as distinctive features of a given class. Unification of class interest is aided greatly by features such as these and when members of any class get together to reminisce on their college days, these often provide the subject matter for such discussions. Again space is a limiting factor and will not allow portrayal of all the features of our class. By the presentation of a few general scenes, however, it is hoped that a suggestion will be made of several others and will lead to many happy moments spent in just thinking r- thinking of the past. - 323 - I I A FEW HIGHLIGHTS OF THE YEAR | -‘I _ Showing various decorations on Homecoming Day.

O. T. C. regiment and their friends. Besides the usual galaxy of color and ceremony, this year s Ball was exceptional in that a full staff of State notables and their wives headed by Governor and Mrs. William H. Vanderbilt were present. Tbe large number of attendants enjoyed dancing to tbe strains of the popular “Bunny " Berigan and his orchestra.

The selection of Larry Clinton and his orchestra more than satisfied and made possible one of the most successful Proms yet. Following the custom, a queen was selected and awarded a cup.

Comments: The participation in the Senior Class Vote was not, of course, 100%, but it was considerable enough to reflect the class’ opinion on the various topics considered. In analysing the vote, we find that: G. Eastwood and S. Brooks ran fairly close seconds as “most handsome " and “most beautiful” respectively: Kay Potter was very close to Betsy I loag as " most thorough lady " ; Aurie Panteleiff barely missed being " biggest society lady”; E. Forest was one vote behind in “best dressed” selection; Zachadnyk was close as “best natured, " as was M. McClean; Louise Thurber and Donald Graham were very close as “smoothest ”: the selection of Chet Jaworski as " best all around athlete " was practically unanimous; A. Dobrolel was close as “most brilliant”: Len Looby was shaded out as “most versatile : Emma Leon and E. Forest were second as “most likely to succeed " ; Aldrich was almost " biggest campus politician”: Doc Hyde was considered by many as having the " biggest drag with the faculty ; Ken Higginbotham was only two votes behind as “most depend- able”: Dan Aldrich and Ruth Tyler were mentioned the greatest number of times in the total vote. In the questionnaire section, the most notable features were: one person expected S45 on the first job after graduation: the youngest graduate is 19. the oldest 26: least time spent in studying daily was ten minutes: lowest cost of college education was S500. the highest was $4,000; 117 thought R. I. should have entrance examinations while only 68 thought it should not: the vote for the continuance of the Mayoralty Campaigns was 143 to 36; a minimum amount of foolish answers. - 340 - I I CLASS PROPHECY (As presented by Class Prophet) In 1949 the greater of the world wars had been terminated for a year. The entire world is steeped in peace. But today a new and different project is being heralded throughout the United States. A Utopia of education has been realized at the University of Rhode Island. Here, we see a university being administered by a group of ex-Rhode Island students. The class of 1939 won the institution in the war. At the Kingston Conference in 1948, Danny Aldrich warned Dr. Bressler of his high powered mind and explosive personality and in six months the college belonged to tbe class of 1939. A few months later a university had been formed. President Aldrich, not forgetting his army of blue shirts of 1939, has rewarded them with positions at the university. Bill Butler, the strong arm boy, can be lound any time of the day at his office in Frank’s hall with his bottle of coke and the power of Vice-President and Dean of Men. Dean of Women, Nancy Barrows, has Dean’s Hour every week to give the eds more lime to wonder what ihe Dean talks about at these meetings. Bob Cashman, as Dean of Freshmen, now has Orientation on a three credit basis and freshmen are dressing like a page out of Esquire. The corps of Amazons were rewarded for their part in the war and Sandy Dobrolet has been installed as Dean of Engineering. Ed Forest, due to his ability to stabilize Kingston mud, a monetary medium of exchange, is now Dean of Science and Business Administration. Doc Hyde, at the head of the Military Department, is hard at work with his vast army of N. Y. A. workers. Under the direction of Mildred Barry, Esther Armstrong, and Grace Eisendorff, the cafeteria is offering two legs instead of one with every chicken dinner. The long line of male students we see outside the President’s office is not because of the popularity of the President; it s his secretary, Barbara Wilbour. She is lovely when she is sitting down. It’s hard to determine where this line ends and the bread line begins, sorry, we mean the deferred pay- ment line. Cuddy Murphy has installed a new system, yearly notes instead of monthly notes. The Superintendent of Grounds, Harris Kenyon, has done wonders for the university. The pig pens have finally been moved off the front lawn of Beta Phi, and the Watson House is now being run strictly on a pork diet. The dairy barn, under the management of Joe D Almo and Hank Abrams, has discovered a new feed which develops alcoholic tendencies in milk. Jim Belknap is justifying his being selected as bursar. He has established a new discount system which is run as a side line. He will cut all bills being paid in half if he gets half of the half he cuts. He’s an expert at fixing the books. Elliot Diltleman is in charge of deciphering Belknap’s system, but Belknap hasn’t been sent to a concen- tration camp as yet. Continuing with their 1939 plan for a browsing room in the library, we also find a cocktail lounge — all kinds of fruit cocktails may be had. Art Almon with his vast experience as a librarian is chief cocktail connoisseur. Other types of cocktails will be served after the next coup d’etat by the class of ' 39. Janice Messer and Johnny La Castro have been given full charge of the nursery. Doc Blount has added several new species of pills to the present collection. Pills will be delivered anywhere on the campus. Along with the new Doc, we have two new temperature-takers, Margie Vard and Ernie Mayhew. An infirmary holiday had to be called by President Aldrich; there was a run on pills. Len Looby has arranged for a 6-monlhs booking of the Rhody Review on Broadway. It’s strange but the costumes are caps and gowns. The placement service under Dick Noss not only has the photograph of each graduate printed on the placement sheet, but fingerprints are also included. The faculty, the most important part of this Utopia, has been selected with the utmost care. Lloyd Garland, professor of egotistics. is an authority on how to tell others how good you are. Danny Lyons, instructor of entomology, has developed a spray which guarantees to exterminate all jitterbugs. Esth er Masterson, head of the Home Economics department, won this position in a can opening contest. Chet Jaworski, director of athletics, formed an axis with Brown and Providence College by which they agree to give up all their farm teams and natural resources. It looks as though the basketball team may make that New York trip. Some of Jaworski’s staff, not stooges, are Jim Cook, Babe Graham, Jim Magee, Leon Caprielian, and Stan Holt. Miles Zisserson and Berthe Castonguay jointly control the dramatics department but there is rumor of professional jealousy. Every member of the class of 1939 can be found at the new University in one department or another. There is some talk about the united front preparing to destroy our system, but we have faith in its ability to succeed. - 341 - SHAKESPEARIAN FESTIVAL Each year it has been the custom of the Rhode Island State College Players to produce several Shakespearian classics, and this year there was instituted the idea of carrying these productions off campus as well as producing them on the campus. The results of this novel idea were very successful and with the achievements of a successful Festival in their favor, the Rhode Island State College Players should be complimented upon their successful season.
