" — Huxley. ■ITHIN these pages are contained the happenings of the past year. Some of these activities bring back memories, which in turn may bring back a smile, a tear, sighs, or heartaches, depending upon individual differences and attitudes toward Rhode Island State College. Year after year, a group called Seniors move out from the Kingston campus to a place in the world where a new and different life is found. The College becomes a nonentity, leaving no trace upon the worldly-wise alumnus. Classmates, students, faculty members, the buildings, the grounds, and even the spirit and traditions are easily forgotten. In the near future we hope to become alumni of Rhode Island State College, all of us, so let us try to retain some connection, some spirit of loyalty that will make Kingston more than just a name on the map. Let us relish the thought that we still belong. When, in later years, this catalog is ever dusted off to be perused, may it be with the idea that it is a reminder of a happy era which we, as students, helped to perpetuate. O jdiacdtLm, 2) .

But I will weave for you a story out of the yarn of human experiences. March 12 was a funeral day. It marked the burial of all aspirations, desires, hopes and rewards tor the future. For several weeks there had been an air of mystery around the house. The members of the household showed the same signs of uneasiness that animals exhibit before a major catastrophe. _ luncheon the little boy asked, " Daddy, where ai continued, " What are you going to do?” This tn n his you going this afternoon?” He was told. Then he le was told a little, not much. Silence prevailed. Later, of the profoundest moments in life, he said, " Daddy, this is home. This is the only I know. I have never lived any other place. But if you are going to leave, I am going with you. i work I can mow lawns. 1 won’t get that boat and outboard motor this summer. We don t have to a the movies as often as we do. There is just one show, though, I would like to see.” Father and son went to the movies that night and stayed out until twelve o clock which is a great t in the life of any eleven year old boy. And the father turned in the middle of the river and rowed back. I hope someday every one of you may have a son like him. -19- fcxsi gjdtwsL S,n. 1919; Appomted President Ed.D., R. I.

RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE EXPERIMENT STATION ' I ' HIS group, organized as a State-Federal project, takes part in performing ti main functions of the College. These are accomplished by carrying on re n functions of the College. These are accomplished by carrying on research in agricultural work, and in distributing the bulletins which reveal this information to all those who desire it. Though many of u s are unaware of its import, the agricultural people of the State appreciate the Experiment Station’s worth. This organization has made great advance- ment along the agricultural research line, nationally as well as locally. -42- THE 9f(? GRIST EXTENSION SERVICE TT is by means of the Extension Service, organized under provision of the Smith-Lever ■ - Act, that the work of the College in agriculture and home economics is brought to the people of the State who are beyond the college age. Its work is conducted on a project basis, information accrued is distributed through radio programs, lectures, pamphlets, and demonstrations, thus maintaining a closer contact between the people of the State and the College.

The opening weeks of the season found the Keaney eleven dropping its first three games; the next three weeks saw the Rams win three in a row; and the football curtain for the year was brought down with a tie and a defeat in the final two games. Injuries, the bug-a-boo of Rhode Island football, again took a tremendous toll from the Ram playing strength, but throughout the year the outstanding feature might be summed up as — " They may have been outmanned, but they were never outfought.” The outstanding games of the season — those of sectional or traditional rivalry — were with Providence College, Brown and Connecticut State. In the season’s opener the Friars rammed across a touchdown in the third period to take the measure of the Rams; the Bruins, unleashing a savage — and probably their most powerful — offensive of the season tripped the Keancy team by five touchdowns, four of which were scored in the second half; and the Nutmeggers, building up an early lead, staved off a desperate Ram rally in the final quarter that fell just short of knotting the count.

State Place Cranston Providence Kingston Boston Worcester Kingston 0 14 40 0 23 20 7 6 7 7 14 20 — 132 — THE f ' fo GRIST RHODE ISLAND 0, PROVIDENCE 6 The Rams and the Friars inaugurated the Rhode Island gridiron season under flood- lights at the Cranston Stadium with the Providence team heavily favored in pre-game predictions. The meeting, always a rugged and closely-contested battle, followed the pattern of previous meetings, the Friars riding to victory in the third period as a result of 14-yard end run that found pay dirt. Providence dominated play during the greater part of the game, but the Rams, with Duke Abbruzzi rising to great defensive heights, halted the Friars’ touchdown thrusts until the third period when a 66-yard drive gave Providence its winning touchdown. Providence threatened to add to its total on several occasions, but brilliant tackling by Co-Captains Petro and Pace and booming punts by Keaney usually set the Friars back on their heels. The Rams’ principal threat to the Friar cause came in the second period when they drove from their own 48-yard marker to the Providence 12-yard line before the attack stalled and the Friars kicked out of danger. -133- RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE RHODE ISLAND 0, BROWN 34 A rugged and fast Brown team that gave early-season promise of greatness was Rhode Island’s second opponent of the season with the game the twenty-eighth meeting between the two rivals in a thirty-year-old series. The Rams, giving their all in a stern first-half battle, held the powerful Bruins to a one-touchdown margin before the rest- period, but the battering took its toll in the second half as the McLaughry eleven added four more tallies to win by a decisive margin. Warner Keaney and Duke Abbruzzi were the leading figures in the stirring defensive battle offered by the embattled Rams, but Brown packed too much speed, power and deception to be held in leash. Keaney’s towering kicks were truly magnificent as time and again he pulled Rhode Island out of repeated holes. Keaney, Abbruzzi, Larry Gates, Cliff Pace and the rest of the Ram stalwarts played their hearts out in a losing cause, but their best was not good enough against the combined efforts of Bones Stepczyk, Charlie Blount, Ernie Savignano, Johnny Prodgers and Lou Duesing. -134- THE ? 0 GRIST 10-7-39 RHODE ISLAND 0, MAINE 14 Running into an offense that featured baffling reverses and spinners, the Rams dropped a 14-0 decision to the Maine Black Bears before a crowd of close to 6,000 at Alumni Field, Orono. Rhode Island saw their goal line crossed in each of the first two periods, but managed to check the well-polished Maine offense in the final half. Nearly overwhelmed by the unexpected strength of the Bears, the Rams managed to keep their goal line from being crossed early in the contest only through the lengthy kicks of big Warner Keaney. Playing the greatest game of his collegiate career, Keaney booted three that carried over 60 yards to end the pressure after Maine had worked deep into Rhode Island territory. - 135 - RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE 10-14-39 RHODE ISLAND 40, BROOKLYN 0 Routing the jinx that had kept him from scoring in the first three games, Abbruzzi, the Rams’ dancing master, stepped all the way out to lead the team to a 40-0 victory over Brooklyn College. The game was packed with triple reverses and passes that saw State backs out in the open all afternoon. Behind excellent blocking and interference. Ram ball carriers struck Brooklyn pay dirt six times. 10-21-39 RHODE ISLAND 23, MASS. STATE 20 With a South County fog dropping a blanket over the field and only seconds of play remaining, Warner Keaney kicked a 36-yard held goal to give the Rams a 23 to 20 victory over Massachusetts State. THE ? 0 GRIST The backs of both teams enjoyed a field day as the defenses were conspicuous by their absence. The Rams started right off and scored on a 6 5 -yard march; Mass. State came right back and scored and that was the way the game went all afternoon. 10-28-39 RHODE ISLAND 7, NORTHEASTERN 6 Backed to the wall time and again by the determined onslaughts of a heavier and better-manned Northeastern University eleven, the Rams clung tenaciously to a one- point advantage to nose out the Huskies, 7-6, before a Northeastern Homecoming-Day crowd of 5,000 at Huntington Field. Rhode Island gained its points as a result of a first-period touchdown by Abbruzzi, and the extra marker by Keaney. The Rams, spurred on by the magnificent play of the latter, rose to the heights to turn back the Huskies and capture their third straight victory of the season and their first victory over Northeastern in football. -137- RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE 11-4-39 RHODE ISLAND 7, WORCESTER 7 Battered between the 20-yard lines, but failing to give ground when their goal line was threatened, the Rams gave another great exhibition of courage as they held the powerful Worcester Tech Engineers to a 7-7 tie. Given but a scant chance of keeping the Engineers from ringing up a victory at their expense, the Rams fought desperately in the pinches to hold the Worcester team. The Rams, in their effort to win, threw 23 passes, of which all were completed. The Rams drove the length of the field in the third period to tie the score at seven-all. 11-11-39 RHODE ISLAND 14, CONN. STATE UNIV. 20 Capitalizing on its scoring opportunities, the University of Connecticut turned back a determined fourth-period assault by Rhode Island to score a 20-14 victory over the Rams in a rough and bruising football game at Kingston. With a Homecoming Day crowd of close to 4,000 on hand to witness the thirty-third game of the series that started in 1897, the teams tore at each other throughout the rough contest. THE O GRIST It was a heartbreaking decision for the Rams to lose, for t hey fought courageously against great odds; on several occasions Rhode Island had victory almost within its grasp but each time it slipped away. Outweighed almost 40 pounds along the line, but led by Co-Captains Petro and Pace, it asked and gave no quarter. Abbruzzi gave one of his best demonstrations, ran the harrassed Nutmeggers dizzy, and even the deliberate punches thrown in his direction failed to completely halt the galloping star from Warren. The Rams outscored their rivals 12 to 8 in first downs, but the visitors were making good use of their breaks to score. In the first period when Duke misjudged a lofty punt and fumbled, Connecticut recovered and marched 23 yards to a touchdown. The final Connecticut touchdown came when it partly blocked Warner’s punt and Petersen caught the ball and ran 20 yards to score. - 139- RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE INDIVIDUAL SCORING Louis J.

Chet Jaworski, last year’s collegiate high scorer, and John Frances Martin of Newport, another former Ram star, combined to give the spectators a brilliant exhibition of ball- handling in the Alumni cause. 1-5-40 RHODE ISLAND 59, UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 53 Modzelewski and Rutledge combined to score 43 points for Rhode Island as it scored a 59-53 victory over the University of Maryland in the feature game of a double-header at the Armory in Elizabeth, N.

The victory marked the third straight in Conference play for the defending champions. 1-13-40 4,000 ENTHUSIASTIC FANS SEE AUDITORIUM GAME Maintaining amazing speed and marksmanship throughout while the Providence College team lost its scoring punch and some of its stamina in the second half, the Rams raced to a 50-30 victory over the Friars at the Auditorium before a crowd of 4,000 spectators. Providence failed to score a field goal in the last 1 5 minutes of play. - 154- THE 9 0 GRIST MODZELEWSKI HAS FIELD DAY AS RAMS FIVE ROMPS 72 TO 48 Giving an exhibition of floor work that reminded one of Chet Jaworski, Modzelewski, with able assistance from Conley and Rutledge, led the Rams to a convincing 72 to 48 triumph over the St. Anselm Hawks of New Hampshire. The game, played in Kingston, was Rhode Island’s ninth victory in 10 starts. 2-7-40 KEANEYMEN BURY MASS.

Platt, of Brown, and Modzelewski, of State, divided the game ' s scoring honors, each netting 24 points.

Conley marked up 28 points while Modzelewski garnered 23. 2-22-40 RHODE ISLAND 76, MAINE 54 Maine held Rhode Island on nearly even terms throughout a close first half, but the Ram offense speeded up in the final half to leave the Bears behind at Orono, the final count reading, Rhode Island 76, Maine 54. 2-24-40 RHODE ISLAND 102, CONNECTICUT 81 In a great demonstration of offensive power, the Rams of Rhode Island and the Huskies of Connecticut kept the basketball nets of Rodman Hall swishing as 183 points were poured through them in 40 minutes of play. Modzelewski, with 40 points, set a New England Conference scoring record; Donnelly, Connecticut, was not far behind with 30 points. Keaney, in the backcourt for the Rams, gave a great exhibition of clearing the backboards, staving off many a desperate Connecticut scoring bid. -157- 2-28-40 BROWN 61, RHODE ISLAND 49 The Brown Bears, catching Rhode Island on the rebound of a great Connecticut victory, stunned the Rams with a 6 1 to 49 defeat, terminating the Rhode Island victory run at IS games. Captain Platt of the Bruins again was instrumental in his team’s triumph, pacing them in the scoring column while directing the Bruins ' defense. Brown ' s slow, short-passing game threw the Rams off-stride, and before they could regain it, the clever Bears had tucked away the verdict. 3-2-4 RHODE ISLAND 75, PROVIDENCE 62 In a bruising, hard-fought game that saw tempers flare and break, the Rams turned back the Friars of Providence by a 7S to 62 count at Kingston. Offensively, Modzelewski was again the spearhead of the Rhode Island attack while defensively, Kcaney rose to the heights and prevented many potential Providence tallies. THE 9 0 GRIST 3-6-40 WORCESTER 81, RHODE ISLAND 73 Worcester Tech’s towering giants had too much height and reach for the smaller Rams at Worcester, and the Engineers utilized their advantages to hand the Rhode Island quintet its third defeat of the season, 81 to 73. Worcester went into the rest period with a four-point lead and maintained its advantage in the second half to turn back the Rams. Rutledge took the evening’s scoring honors as Modzelewski marked up 26 to bring his season’s total to 495. 3-9-40 RHODE ISLAND 49, CONNECTICUT 48 Where offenses had dominated in their first meeting, the defenses of Rhode Island and Connecticut were stressed in the second clash. The Nutmeggers came out for the second half of the game with an eight-point advantage, but the Rams whittled the lead down until Rutledge’s one-hander in the final 30 seconds of play gave Rhode Island its one-point victory margin, 49-48. Modzelewski, with 14 points, set a new intercollegiate scoring record for the season with 509 points. 159- m RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE RESUME OF FRESHMAN BASKETBALL -1«0- THE 9fy GRIST FROSH BASKETBALL The Freshmen, with an undefeated season, presented the most successful and promising first-year team that has ever represented Rhode Island. Tall, rangy and fast, the Frosh swept on against all opposition to finish with a " clean slate.” Perhaps Coach Keaney will sec his " dream” come true, for such men as Shannon, Applebec, French, Wicks, Harvey and Holey can be expected to fill in the varsity gaps next season. The team was well balanced as five men hit the century mark in scoring. No one man can be selected as standing out above the others, but Earl Shannon and Robert Applebee headed the team in scoring. Shannon, with his uncanny good passing and clean shooting, appears to be headed for a varsity berth next season. Applebee, tall, fast, shifty, and a one-hand shot specialist, can fill in any position on the team. In the back court French, Harvey and Wicks, with height and speed displayed ball handling and backboard ability, kept the opponents covered, and undoubtedly will see much LRESHMAN BASKETBALL SCORING Ptsytr Robert W.

The Tootell athletes dominated every event as the neighboring visitors from Connecticut offered the powerful Rams slight opposition. Ray Scnccal was the only double winner of the afternoon, taking first-place honors in the low and high hurdles. Clarke, Robblec, Lord, and Holt all won their running events in convincing fashion. Barlow took the hammer, and Aldrich did likewise in the discus. Bryant won shot put honors while Kelman broad-jumped to first in that event. Perkins, Hammcrlund and Hedberg split the pole vault points among them, and Larkin and Bainton took top points in the high jump. - 166- THE 9 0 GRIST BROOKLYN COLLEGE 19, RHODE ISLAND 116 Brooklyn, offering but feeble competition, took but one first place as the Rams again raced to a one-sided track triumph. The New York outfit gained first place in the two- mile run, but found itself overmatched in every other event as the Ram point-getters went to work with a vengeance. Ray Senecal again took top-honors in both hurdles with winners in the other events coming through as expected. RHODE ISLAND 89, BROWN 46 The Brown Bears offered the Rams sterner opposition than had been given them in the two previous meets, but once more the powerful balance of Rhode Island was more than Brown could match. Holt and Senecal were double winners, the former taking RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE firsts in the half-mile and mile and the latter leading the pack in both hurdles. Frank Lord, with a first in the 220-yard dash and a tic for first in the century, was another important point-getter. Dan Aldrich set a new Brown field mark in the discus with a heave of 149 feet 1 i inches. RHODE ISLAND 87, NEW HAMPSHIRE 48 The Wildcats of New Hampshire gave Rhode Island a strong fight during the opening events, but the Rams finished in convincing fashion, scoring heavily in the closing events to topple their visitors. Holt’s winning mile run, after recovering from a rather bad tumble as the event started, was one of the features of the meet. Gladding just missed the college mark in the javelin as he won first place in the event. -168- THE ffo GRIST RHODE ISLAND WINS NEW ENGLAND TITLE The Rams ' array of power was more than the other teams in the title chase could match, and the Tootell athletes left Durham, New Hampshire, with their third New England Intercollegiate track title in as many years. Picking up 24 Zi points during the course of the meet, the Rams turned back the bids of Brown and Holy Cross, their strongest competitors, to win the title. Senecal scored points in both hurdles, Lord garnered some in the 220-yard dash, and Holt closed Rhode Island’s scoring in the running events with points in the half-mile. Gladding and Perkins took first and third in the javelin, Aldrich copped the discus, and Hedberg took first and Hammerlund tied for second in the pole vault. - 169 — RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE FRESHMAN TRACK SQUAD RESUME OF MEETS April 1 1 Westerly High 1 1 5 April 15 Mt.

Completely outscoring its opponents, the Freshmen chalked up 669 points to their rivals 237. Not only were they more than successful in turning in such a commendable team performance, but they turned out several outstanding individual performers, who left behind them a string of broken records. All in all, four former freshmen records Probably the most outstanding of these prospective champs was Norman Wilcox, whose feats of establishing new records in the 12 and 16 lb. hammer events, with throws of 199 feet 7 inches and 162 feet 7 inches, respectively, qualifies him to carry on where State’s weight immortals. Dryer, Rowe and Folswartshny, left off. Mel Jewett climaxed a very successful season by breaking the school high-jump record with a jump of six feet, two inches, while John Wiseman equalled this feat in the javelin with a toss of 188 feet, 8 inches. In the running events, Charley Tingley and Angelo Oliver also showed championship form; the former by setting a new two-mile record of 10 minutes, 17 seconds, and the latter by equaling the 100-yard mark of 9.9 seconds.

U. scored two singles, a pass, an error and a sacrifice fly. 4-15-39 RHODE ISLAND 16, NORTHEASTERN 2 This game was featured by two home run drives of Bill Butler and the five-hit pitching performance of Warner Keancy. The Rams chalked up their second victory of the season as they walloped Northeastern 16-2 at Kingston. 4-21-39 RHODE ISLAND 13, CONNECTICUT 1 A hard-hitting R.

The Rams scored two runs in the first inning and added eight more before the Nutmeggcrs managed to get a lone run in the sixth. 4-25-39 RHODE ISLAND 13, ARNOLD 5 Combing 18 hits for a total of 26 bases from the offerings of Arnold pitchers, the Rams chalked up their fourth straight victory of the season, tripping the New Haven nine, 13-5, at Kingston. -173- RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE The game was a weird one, for hardly an inning went by that something unusual did not crop up. Players stole occupied bases, the base umpire was hit by a ground ball, there were misjudged fly balls, and Coach Keaney was off the bench more than he was on it. 4-28-39 RHODE ISLAND 7, MAINE 3 The Rams scored their fifth straight victory of the season as they defeated the University of Maine nine, 7-3, in an abbreviated game at Kingston.

The game was tight all through, with both teams playing good ball. 5-12-39 RHODE ISLAND 9, BOSTON UNIVERSITY 7 In a game featured by the effective ninth-inning relief pitching of big Warner Keaney, the Rams staged an uphill battle to beat the Terriers, 9-7, at Kingston. The victory gave the Rams a clean sweep of the two-game series. 5-20-39 RHODE ISLAND 3, BROWN 1 With Warner Keaney turning in a standout performance, the Rams forces avenged a previous defeat by downing Brown, 3 to 1. Keaney pitched one of the best games of his career, allowed only three singles, fanned eight men and banged out two hits which figured in the scoring of two runs. He retired the opposition in order in nine innings and did not allow a hit from the third inning to the eleventh. 5-23-39 RHODE ISLAND 7, WORCESTER 0 Going the hurling distance for the first time at State, Abbruzzi limited the strong Worcester Tech nine to four singles as the Rams laid down a 14-hit barrage for a 7 to 0 triumph at Kingston. LaCastro and Butler were the big guns with the bat. -175- RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE 5-24-3 9 RHODE ISLAND 2, CONNECTICUT I Daring base running by John LaCastro, the speed merchant from Westerly, gave the Rams a 2 to 1 verdict over Connecticut at Kingston. The victory assured the Rams of at least a tie in the Conference race. 5-26-39 RHODE ISLAND 18, MAINE 8 Rhode Island clinched the New England Conference baseball title by coming from behind to beat the University of Maine, 18 to 8, at Orono. Maine played one of its poorest ball games of the year as R. I. shelled three hurlers for 12 hits in piling up its one-sided victory. 5-27-39 RHODE ISLAND 2, NEW HAMPSHIRE 1 For the second time the Rhode Island Rams nipped the Wildcats by a one-run margin, this me, 2-1, in 11 innings at Durham. Bill Fitch won his own ball game by driving 5-30-39 RHODE ISLAND 4, PROVIDENCE 13 In the last game of the season the Rams reached Walter Morris for four hits and as many runs in the first inning at Providence, but Morris settled down quickly and contributed heavily to a subsequent IS -hit Friar barrage that crushed the Rams, 13 to 4, before 1,500 fans.

The team won its first three games before earning a 2-2 deadlock with the Commonwealth Hockey Club of Wellesley, Mass. Commonwealth, incidentally, boasting some of the best hockey players in the New England sector, trounced Rhode Island, 6-0, the year before. Hofstra College and Rhode Island battled to a scoreless draw in the following game. Ursinus College, a newcomer on the schedule, snapped the undefeated string in the sixth game, 2 to 0. Two more draws, against Pembroke College and New York University, followed before the team made its journey into Pennsylvania to meet three opponents on successive days. In the gruelling three games the Rhode Islanders turned back Immaculate College, but lost to two Philadelphia elevens. Temple University and Drexel Institute, considered among the better hockey teams in the country. Marjorie Whitaker, Betty Williams, Margaret Brown, Mary Schwartz and Barbara Webster were the leading scorers with Capt. Margaret Thackeray, Ann Chaharvn, Anna Moskalyk, Jane Sanborn, Elaine Bresslcr and Miriam Shanlcy the defensive stalwarts.

The first five games found Coach Jo Lees ' charges adding that many victories to the undefeated string of the year before, but in the sixth game of the season Hofstra College gave Rhode Island its first loss at Hempstead, Long Island. Savage School gained revenge for the defeat it suffered the previous year by turning back Rhode Island for setback number two. Posse squared its season’s series with Coach Lees’ team by giving Rhode Island defeat number three. Betty Benheimer, who as a freshman led the team scoring the year before, was once more the leading point-getter with 96 points, nosing out Capt. Helen Szymkowicz for this honor by three points. Betty Williams was well up in the scoring list with 70 points. Hazel Joyce, Jane Sanborn and Mary Clarkin presented a very able defense during the season. The season ' s opener with the Boston Antiques at Kingston found the Rhode Island six too strong for the opposition. Captain Szymkowicz led the home team to an early lead as 22 players saw action. The Alumnae offered spirited opposition the following week and led at half-time by a one-point margin with cx-Capt. Janet Potter, ' 58, doing the bulk of the scoring. The undergraduates came back stronger in the third period to erase the deficit and outlasted the Alumnae in the final period to win. Betty Benheimer scored 22 points, her highest total of the season, as the Providence City Club was defeated with ease. - 191 - RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE Rhode Island overcame an early Posse lead in the next game to add the Massachusetts six to its list of victims. In the first game of its out-of-Ncw England trip Rhode Island more than doubled its opponents ' total to beat Panzer College at East Orange. The second game of the trip brought Rhode Island its first defeat of the season as Hofstra College won at Hempstead, Long Island. Playing back in East Orange the next day, Rhode Island led all the way to defeat Upsala. Savage School gave the Lees sextet its second defeat of the trip and the season the following day. Playing back in Kingston, Rhode Island went to work against American International College with a vcngance, scoring 54 points and holding the opposition scoreless for two periods as Betty Williams dominated the point-getting with 20 points. Posse squared the season’s home-and-home series with Rhode Island at Kingston by winning the next game, the locals third defeat. Drexcl Institute built up a five-point first-half lead, but Rhode Island came back strong in the second half to square the count and gain a 22-all deadlock in the season ' s finale. During the season Rhode Island scored 327 points, nearly 30 points a game, while holding the opposition to 230 points, about a 20-point average — proof of the able coaching of Jo Lees and the offensive and defensive ability of the Rhode Island women.

To rally this support is the task of the cheer leaders. That they have succeeded is acknowledged by all. Under the tutelage of Prof. Tudor this group has improved steadily in the last three years, attending all home football and basketball games, and most of those played away from Kingston.
