f 3 Elmer P. Ladouceur Editor-in-Chief Frederick S. Conley Business Manager ISLAND STATE COLLEGE 1941 5 DEDICATED TO YOU To you for whom the very name of Rhode Island State College daily assumes new significance, to you who carry on the traditions of the college, to you who will give life to the college this 1941 Grist is dedicated. For you Rhode Island State College was founded; to you, also, was she dedi- cated, and with you only will she flourish. We of the class of ’41, who for four years have watched our college progress and change, have given of ourselves and received full return. The heritage of advancement is given to you who follow. It is for you to give time and effort and care that the spirit of Rhode Island State College may never lag nor he broken. The idea of the importance of you who make up the college has been well expressed. Parents asking to see the college one summer day were told. “The college is not here, it is home on vacation.” 6 CLASS ADVISOR-FRIEND Dr. Edward M. Pease The pictures below depict the varied life at State. We see, a general gathering of students, a professor with his experiment, a view of our famous Marine Laboratory, a typical house dance, and last but not least Old Ben Butler ivho has greeted every student since 1895 . . . Students on steps . . . Prof. Carleton . . . Marine Lah. . . . 8 THE 1941 GRIST Many hours of dreaming, planning, and working have gone into compiling this, the 1941 edition of the Grist which we now present for your approval. We have endeavored to preserve for you an accurate record of the many experiences of the college year 1940-41, which you have enjoyed because you shared an intimate part in them. You are the principal characters of this narrative. Your activities, from the opening week of school to the time when you receive your coveted degree, furnish the plot of this story; your accomplishments, the climax. May you look hack in future years, when memory fails to recall these happy times with sufficient clarity, anil read again with some enjoyment the story of another year at Rhode Island Slate — not just another year, hut the year 1940-1941. The merits of the hook may he attributed to the cooperation of many people who took an interest in it. To Jack Marshall of Howard-Wesson Company for his personal interest and creative work and Milton Fitch of the same firm for excellence of engraving and layout. The honors for photography go to Mr. Van Dale of Pawtucket and George Gee of the campus. Mr. Droitcour of Providence gave us excellent suggestions for printing and displayed great patience in working with an inexperienced staff. It is the sincere wish of the editor; the business manager, anil each member of the staff that the 1941 Grist will he a source of information and real pleasure to you all. Registration Day . . .

Scott, Jr. Vice Pres., Blanche M. Rich ard Treasurer, Frederick S. Conley Secretary, Phillis C. Arnold So. Ch., Norman S. Chase This, ralher than being an historical classi- fication, might well be called the saga of the Class of 1941. It is the story of three hundred and fifty young men and women who four years ago entered the portals of Rhode Island State College as Freshmen, devoid of fame and reknown, and bearing only the adopted stand- ard of “the finest class under the sun.” The tides of eollege education and activities have borne this group through four unforgettable years of eollege life to the fast-approaching goal — graduation. Here for the first time is 1941 42 an opportunity for a perspective on a nearly closed chapter for two-thirds of that original group — an opportunity for reminiscence . . In some instances it was chance that brought us to Kingston Hill on September of 1937. Col- lege was a mystery to practically all of us — some had planned, some had hoped, some had unexpectedly come upon the opportunity of a collegiate education — certainly none were experienced. The first week of bewildered pushing and rushing, endless lines, appoint- ments, and examinations was a dashing intro- duction to a new life. Our first realization that we existed as a class came with the magic words of our class song . . . Forty-one! Forty-one! She’s the finest class under the sun! She excels in brawn and brain. She is sure success to gain. Forty-one! Forty-one! Whether college days have just begun Or college life is over and done We’ll loyal be to State, to our college dear and great. And to Forty-one. Forty-one has our loyalty, Forty-one has our service free. Forty-one cheers unceasingly for Rhode Island, Rhode Island. State will teach us the way to live. State for us is superlative. Every class will its homage give to Rhode Island State. Forty-one! Forty-one . . . Unity was one hundred percent before Freshman Week was over, thanks to the com- mon ground of Frosli caps and Bibles and the advent of upper-class “oppression”. While each year seemingly has passed more quickly, none held more surprises and pleas- ures than our first. We learned that college rules were made especially for Freshmen — and at least half of our class, pledging into twelve fraternities in October, learned quickly the early bonds of fraternal life, the “life” of a pledgee. We took rather kindly to “army life” on Monday afternoons, although for many the novelty wore off.

At the same time we were conscious of women’s basketball and a Varsity team abetted regularly by two Freshman stars, Hazel Joyce and Jane 46 of 194 1 Sanborn. The first dance ever held in the new library at Green Hall was the Faculty Ball in February. We braved a blizzard,to hear Tommy Reynolds and to meet the faculty “at play.” That was, of course, after our first semester’s experience with quality points. Incidentally there were rumors rampant then that an amazing record of scholarship was being compiled by the Class of 1941.

The Boartl of Trustees became a reality then as members of our class contacted them for answers to stu- dent questions on the administrative tie-up. The Class of ’41 was in a difficult position. Members of the Senior class facing approach- ing graduation were unwilling to assume leadership in the trying days that were appar- ently ahead. Freshmen and sophomores were not experienced enough to fully understand 1941 74 of 194 1 the situation. Thus it fell the lot of the Juniors to lead the student hody in a situation unpar- alled in the entire history of Rhode Island State College. Subjected to increasing pressure of public anil student opinion, the Board of Trustees finally announced that Dr. Bressler had been removed from office. Then followed a series of charges and counter-charges and the increased agitation of all those concerned with the college. Alumni members joined students in demanding that justice he done.

Mass meetings of the entire student hotly were condneted, and the orderly procedure of these meetings in- dicated the sincerity anti maturity of student thought. The basic demands of the students were that an exaet statement of the reasons for removal he made, that an opportunity for a just hearing he given, and finally that an im- partial investigatory committee he appointed by the Governor. Striking through the tumult came a sadden- 1941 76 of 194 1 ing loss keenly felt by both students and faculty. Captain Joseph kullman was a man for whom we had formed a sincere liking as freshmen and sophomores in the R.O.T.C., and his death could not erase the memory of his voice, his deeds, or his humor. In the midst of the continuing battle for an impartial com- mittee to investigate the removal of Dr. Bress- ler, thoughts of our major social aiTair oc- cupied our attention.

The appoint- ment of the impartial investigatory hoard was hailed by the students as the answer to their long struggle and student action subsided for 78 of 194 1 the remainder of the year. The work of the “Committee of Seven”, w hich interviewed Gov- ernor Vanderbilt and the Board of Trustees, and the handbills and letters distributed throughout the State had accomplished our desire for the investigation.

The V ' f officers of the class for the vear 1 Q‘tK 1939 were: Bill Martin, PresidenT; Anne Peter! 96 son, (now Mrs. Babbitt), Vice-President; Betty Benheimer, Secretary; and Bill Rutledge, Treasurer. It was our privilege to enter college in time to see the Basketball record broken with Chet Jaworski’s 475 points. In co-ed Basketball another record was broken. Betty Benheimer bit a new high with a Freshman Girl’s scoring record of 98 points. As college was new and exciting, the first year soon passed, and we were all proud to con- sider ourselves Sophomores. Soph Hop was a colorful affair, with couples dancing happily in the midst of a snow scene. Ruth Oldrid was voted Soph Hop Queen, and a most attractive Queen she was. The class officers for this year included the same people as during Freshman year, with the girls holding the same positions. The fellows changed around, however, giving us: Andy Anderson, President, Bill Martin, Treasurer; and Bill Rutledge, Chairman of the Social Committee. Along w ith all the pleasant and happy things, we also had a taste of tragedy. We mourned the departing of one of our favorite classmates, Frannie Drummond, who loved our College and sincerely enjoyed her work here. This year we have reached the stage of digni- fied or disgusted Juniors — as the case may he. The Military Ball honored our class by tapping thirty-two Junior officers for membership in Scabbard and Blade, and by electing a Junior Girl, Ruth Oldrid as Co-ed Colonel for the en- suing year. While this is being written, plans are in progress for our Junior Prom, which we anticipate with great expectations. An aeroplane craek-up sobered our spirits and made us realize how swift and unexpected an innnocent student may be taken away from our college — classmate, Gilbert Kornstein.

French Vice Pres., Nancy Carpenter Treasurer, Robert V. McCabe Secretary, Eunice E. Thompson So.Ch., Thomas Cashman The Class of 1943 has reached the half-way mark of its undergraduate days and is now entering upon the latter part of its college career. The second year is always a pleasant one, for the average sophomore can enjoy his college days with a minimum of responsibil- ities. For some, however, it is the beginning of “big things.” The “little frog in a big puddle” is gradually becoming familiar with his environment and learning to control it. There are “two little frogs grown up” who have won the respect of their classmates, as shown by the results of the 1940 class elections. Howard French, a pleasant young lad who tosses a mean basketball and football as well, is a capable President. The Vice-presidency is filled by the star athlete of the Sophomore Class, Nancy Carpenter. Likeable Bob McCabe 1941 102 was elected Treasurer, and Betty Thompson, reliable W.S.G.A. Secretary, is also Secretary of the Sophomore Class. And wliat would a class be without a Social Chairman? It is to Tommy Cashman’s credit that the Soph Hop was such a brilliant social success. The theme of the dance was in keeping with the Yuletide season, ami the climax was reached when lovely Jean Yare was crowned Queen. Delta Zeta can boast of still another such personality — Barbara Whaley, who was chosen to reign as Queen of the Aggie Bawl. She succeeded Muriel Dickinson who was Queen in 1939-40. Speaking of elections, Asher Gray was Mayor of Kingston last year, and now Peg Gallogly is keeping the honor in the Class of ’43. The Sophomore Class has contributed much in a material way to State College, as is shown by representation and participation in a mul- titude of campus activities. Of the 58 active members in Phi Delta, 31 are members of the Class of ’43. The Portia Club and The Wran- glers have been outlets for talent along debat- ing lines, and the Radio Network’s business is principally in the hands of the sophomores. Intellectual pursuits have not found the second year class wanting. Lura May Odland and Wil- liam Bloom head the list for scholastic honors. Whenever the w ord “sports” is mentioned, the discussion usually turns to some outstand- ing sophomore. Take Boh Nichols for instance. Bob’s a sensational track star who has a habit of breaking cross country records and inci- dentally is a peach of a kid. The sophomore members of the basketball team are outstand- ing, and the baseball anil football teams are not exempt from sophomore influence. Participa- tion in co-ed athletics has been fostered by the Class of ’43, which can boast of healthy activity in hockey, tennis, and basketball. When the members of the present Sopho- more Class were only yearlings, they knew a good thing when they saw it — for they chose Dr. Lee C. Wilson as their advisor. Llndoubt- edly he will agree that in addition to the mate- rial accomplishments of the Class of ’43, some- thing far more important has been manifest. The Sophomore Class has the Rhody spirit.

During this period we wore green tags to distinguish us from the upper classmen (as if they couldn’t tell us anyway). An informal dance at Lippitt Hall which gave us further chance to make new friends and acquaintances was another feature of this week. At the end of this time the upperclassmen returned, ami then we saw how insignificant we were. In order that we might realize our in- ferior position, the boys had to wear Freshmen caps while the girls wore green ribbons. Further recollections synonymous with our first year were the Girls’ Freshman Stunt Night, paddling sessions, and Freshman walks. As Freshmen we are rather set aside from the other classes. We have our own plays, and our own football and basketball teams. This year we yielded to superior teams in football, hut held our own in basketball. To other activ- ities, such as the Beacon, orchestra and debat- ing, we joined wholeheartedly. At the end of the first quarter, those students ranking in the upper ten per cent of the class were entertained at a special Phi Kappa Phi party. Then, to make us feel more like a class, the Freshman election of class officers was held in February. D r. p s,«,r, B ‘ rr MS.L| r , ' Cr.

New England area ; and we rejoiced in their long-delayed recognition.

A brilliant basketball campaign, highlighted by two treks to Madison Square Garden and an appearance in Convention Hall, Philadelphia, definitely placed Rhode Island in that select circle of leading collegiate clubs. Realizing that any good coaching staff’s efficiency is dependent upon the complete coordination of the entire staff, the work of Coach Paul Cieurzo, Coach William Beck, Coach Lester Erwin, and Coach Kenneth Knickerbocker is deserving of special mention. Coach Cieurzo, in his assistant capacity, is line coach of foot- ball, assistant coach of basketball, and head coach of golf. Football and baseball are Coach Beck’s specialties. “Red” Erwin is Toot’s aide in cross country and track, while Coach Knickerbocker has tennis under his supervision.

Another year saw Rhody yield to her sectional rivals. Brown and Providence College. Forced to bow to Brown 20-17, the Kea- neymen might conceivably have scored a dazzling upset over the highly-touted Brunonians, had not an untimely leg in- jury retired Duke Abbruzzi early in the second quarter. after he had treated the patrons to a star-studded, All-American performance, probably the greatest of his collegiate career. State submitted to its worst shellacking of the season when Providence College administered a 25-0 setback to the rural Rhodians. Maine subdued Rhode Island up at Orono 7-0. The Rams recorded triumphs over Northeastern, Massachusetts State, Lowell Textile. Worcester Tech, and the Univer- sity of Connecticut. The ( Connecticut con- test at Storrs provided the most interest- ing game of the season. For trailing 12-0 at half-time. Little Rhody roared back to cop a well-earned, hard-fought 13-12 verdict.

Wins were registered by the Tootellmen over Northeastern and the University of Connecticut first-year Lacking any co-ordinated offense, the Ramlets managed to score a meager ag- gregate of 19 points over their five game schedule. Undoubtedly State’s outstand- ing performer, Don Dwyer, Cranston’s All-State contribution to Rhode Island, ran, passed, and kicked consistently well in all contests, but especially in the Brown and Providence College tilts. Boston University and Brown rode roughshod over the Rhodylets but Provi- dence College emerged victorious only after a stubbornly-resistant State eleven lapsed momentarily, allowing Roshka to score while a Nieratko to Drew pass added the extra point. A blocked punt by Sarkis paved the way for the opening triumph over Northeastern. The U- Connlets were victims of the Ramlets in the season’s finale. After the Storrsmen had counted on a 30-yard Harris to Scus- sel pass. State retaliated with a similar aerial, Marino to Merolla, while Pan- ciera hooted the game-winning point. SEASON’S RECORD R.

Anacletlie DeCesare Norman Wilcox Duke Abbruzzi 123 THE END OF THE TRAIL Larry Gates The history of our generation’s football teams is the saga of one, Louis “Duke” Abbruzzi. Time will, as it always does, reduce memories of Rhody’s gridiron games to a confused blur, but the vagar- ies of the “old man with the scythe” will not be sufficient, we feel, to efface the glory of the Duke’s brilliant individual performances. It has been a unique privilege to watch the Duke. Even when not starring, his presence has added a colorful lustre to every game. Oftentimes speculation has been rife concerning his probable ath- letic success at other, larger universities. Yet, were it not for the same dancing, dashing Duke, Rhode Island football teams of recent years would have floun- dered through dull, listless campaigns. Abbruzzi has established a new scoring mark of 174 points for posterity to shoot at, and a decade or more may elapse be- fore another so talented a balltoter hap- pens along to eclipse that mark. And even before then, the memory of Duke’s achievements will fade, to be cherished by his classmates alone. Fame’s fickleness 124 20 may claim a new hero tomorrow, but we, as typical alumni, shall return to remind a disinterested, disrespectful posterity that, “Back in 1940 we had a fella named Louis ‘Duke’ Abbruzzi . . . one of the classiest gridders ever to wear the blue of Rhode Island.” ABBRUZZI’S FOUR-YEAR AVERAGE G T PAT TOT 1937 7 8 0 48 1938 8 8 0 48 1939 9 9 0 54 1940 7 4 0 24 30 29 0 174 FOOTBALL RESUME Season’s Record for 1940 R.

Tootell, our capable coach, has seldom if ever experienced any really bad campaigns in all his fifteen falls of cross-country competition, and one of the highlights of his very remark- able record was a five-year win streak, over which period his Rhode Island har- riers were not defeated in dual-meet com- petition. And yet, the very ultimate, the apex of his athletic achievement was at- tained by him this past autumn when his charges trampled over all New England opposition, swept the New York IC4A, and then climaxed their colorful cam- paign with a creditable third place in the NCAA where they vied with the nation’s finest harriers. Statistics alone will illustrate the com- plete domination of the Ram runners. In five dual meets Bob Nichols and Charlie Tingley finished one-two wdiile Les Nichols also figured in a three-way tie for first place in the New Hampshire contest, and a second-place tie with Tingley in the For dll am meet. Rhody’s Redoubtable Robert, in four of these five meets, estab- lished new track records, besides clipping 29 seconds off the New England course record. Some idea of the team strength can be obtained when it is considered that out of a possible 75 points (perfect score) the Ram racers registered 92 points. Along with the Nicholses and Tingley, John Moran, Ken Taylor, John Creech, Art O’Sullivan, Robert Hall, and George Gamache were consistently point-getters, and the great success of the team was mainly attributable to their great im- provement over the previous season.

Coach Erwin 1941 126 RESUME OF THE FRESHMAN CROSS-COUNTRY SEASON Possibly because they were over- shadowed to a great extent by their var- sity brothers, the Ramlet harriers en- joyed a fairly respectable but by no means outstanding, season. Their medi- ocre record of two wins and two losses was enhanced by a surprising and somewhat unexpected triumph in the New Eng- lands where they grouped within the first twenty places to score a nicely-spaced, well-earned win. Lack of experience and a scarcity of material were the earliest problems which confronted Coach Tootell, and as a result the first year men dropped their initial meet to Westerly High by a single point. In the next encoimter they man- aged to eke out a close win over North- eastern, and followed up with a decisive victory over New Hampshire. In the final dual meet of the campaign, the Ramlet runners were forced to how to the Con- necticut freshmen. Fenley and Taylor were consistently State’s best runners throughout the au- tumal season. Fenley led the Rhode Is- land pack in the New England meet placing 4tli while Taylor garnered a 6tli place. Barrett, MacKenzie, Meams, and J ackson scored in almost every meet.

The Nicholses included Tingley in their “brother act”, and all three finished to- gether well ahead of the rest of the field. Kirk was the only enemy runner to slip into the first five places. The score was 17-50. HUSKIES BOW — NICHOLS NOTCHES RECORD Repeating their decisive win of the week previous, the Ram harriers added the Huskies to their list of victims, allow- ing only Parker to finish among the first five.

Three of the five Tootellmen finished among the first five while O’Sullivan was 9th and Creech 13th to complete the scoring. Once again. Boh Nichols led the way, and breasted the tape a full 29 seconds better than the mark established by Don Smith of Maine the year before. Tingley also succeeded in cracking the old record.

Not- withstanding the fact that the Rams in registering their first national win had created a new record I their team total of 72 points was the lowest ever compiled), this Rhode Island triumph, closely fol- lowing on the heels of the New Englands victory of the previous week, was even more significant. True enough, perhaps this win did in- augurate the era which w as to make the American sports’ public Rhode Island conscious. Moreover, it was a fitting climax, a wonderful reward, for a team of boys who were finishing a spotless season. But yet, by far the most signifi- cant side of the triumph was woven about the one man whose efforts finally bore sweet fruition, Coach Fred D. Tootell. For him this must have been the culmina- tion of a long-awaited dream, or perhaps the Fates had decided that they could not justifiably defer his proper rew ' ard any longer, and the student demonstration at the Kingston Station was as much a trib- ute to “Toot” as an appreciation of the team’s accomplishment. Once again Boh Nichols showed his teammates the way, and they “just fol- lowed Boh around” with the result that the team turned in a record total of 72 points, or exactly 10 less than Michigan Stale in second place. Manhattan clinched third place with 103 points. Bob Nichols ran second to Les MacMitchell, Charlie Tingley finished closely behind in fifth position. Les Nichols was the next Rhod- ian to cross the line in 18th place, fol- lowed by Ken Taylor in 21st and John Moran in 26th place. 131 SUMMARY OF THE INDOOR RELAY SEASON Despite the fact that the varsity relay team did not fare as well as past years, they nevertheless turned in a creditable showing in all the meets wherein they participated. Due to a scarcity of mate- rial, Coach Tootell decided to abandon developing a two-mile relay, and con- centrated on aligning his four relayers to produce the best possible results. Dixon, Black, Gosling, Fournier, and Bagshaw were the State standard-bearers, the first three usually participating in every meet while the two sophomores shared the fourth position about evenly. In the first meet of the season, the Vet- erans of Foreign Wars held at Boston, Boston College and St. Johns provided the opposition for Rhode Island. Boston College outbattled the fighting Rhodians in this one to win. Dick Fort cleared the bar at 6 ft. to gain a tie for second place in the high jump. The “B” team, com- posed of Boh and Les Nichols, Dearden, and Bagshaw, finished poorly, and this make-shift quartet competed in only one more meet, the Prout Games, after which they discontinued running for the re- mainder of the winter games. Once again, in the Prout Games the following week the Rliodymen fared badly as both Seton Hall and Fordham finished ahead of the Ram entry. At this point the fortunes of the Toot- ellmen suffered a change for the better, and the following week the relayers fin- ished a smart second to Colgate in the Millrose Meet, outstepping the Villa- nover and Boston College entries. While the relaymen were notching their only win of the campaign up in the Boston B. A. A. games the next Saturday, the other representatives of Rhode Island were monopolizing top honors at the Harvard Invitation meet in Cambridge. The milers scored over Syracuse and Bates. W ' ilcox, Cromwell, Krueger, and Bagsha v, Black, Dixon, Gosling, Coach Tootell 1941 132 Jewett annexed four out of five possible places to lend a decided Rhode Island tinge to the Cambridge meet. The much-publicized, dropped-baton incident, occurring in the New York A. C. meet, eliminated the State-steppers from any consideration. Until the unfor- tunate mishandling of the stick, it was anybody’s race, but the mis-slip on the exchange from Dixon to Bagshaw ruined the evening for the Rhody-men. Obviously still feeling the effects of the previous week’s mishap, Rhode Is- land slipped to fifth place in the National A. A. U. meet held in Madison Square Garden on Washington’s birthday. Despite the fact that they ran llieir fastest time of the year in the I. C. 4 A Meet on March 1, the Ram relayer’s time of 3 minutes and 23 seconds was not good enough to qualify them, and the laurels for the evening went to the weightmen. Big Jack Krueger uncorked his best heave of the season, and incidentally a State record, to put the shot at 50 feet 8 1 , inches, a throw that put him second only to A1 Blozis of Georgetown. Norm Wilcox tossed the 35 lb. weight 52 ft. 11 inches to garner a third place in that event. Frankie Cromwell continued to display his competitive ability by vaulting 13 feet to earn a tie for first place while Mel Jewett completed the Ram scoring for the night when he cleared the har at 5 feet 11 1 2 inches to finish in a tie for fifth place. In the last meet of the indoor season Rhode Island bowed to Seton Hall for the second time in the Knights of Colum- bus meet held in New York. Schedule of the 1941 Indoor Relay Team Place Jan. 11— V.

New York Seton Hall SUMMARY OF THE VARSITY BASKETBALL SEASON Rhode Island’s Basketball teams have always offered something colorful, some- thing exciting for as many winters as Coach Keaney has coached the sport, but certainly never did a championship club receive more student enthusiasm, sup- port, and demonstration than did this past winter’s edition of the Keaney cagers. Playing through a difficult 24 game schedule, with a post-season game in Madison Square Garden, the Rams rang up 21 wins against 4 losses. One of these reverses was by the margin of one point, another by 4 points. Connecticut U., Springfield, Temple, and Seton Hall were the Rliody conquerors. All four games were lost away from home, the Seton Hall setback coming in the Sportswriters Tournament at Madison Square Garden. The Keaneymen made it a clean sweep over Providence College and Brown Uni- versity, and finished in a tie for first place with Connecticut in the New England Conference. With a stiffer schedule, the Rams encountered some formidable op- 1941 134 position, and the St. Josephs, Temple, franklin and Marshall, Wayne and St. trancis games offered some thrilling hits of basketball. Likewise the Connecticut tilt at Storrs and the Brown go at Provi- dence were exciting, emotional thrillers. Individually no one player was out- standing, but it would be well to mention tliat arner Keaney, Bud Conley, played 25 games of great basketball, and their graduation leaves a gap which will be difficult to fill. Stanley Modzelewski, Bill Rutledge, Earl Shannon, and Boh Apple- bee together with the above-named two carried the brunt of the work throughout while Wicks, Harvey, and Abbruzzi also made splendid showings in relief roles. Other members of the squad who saw- considerable action were French, Obrad- ovich, Lownds, McNally, Sperling, and Pansa. R. I. 102, ALUMNI 56 The most streamlined quintet in Rhode Island’s history opened its 1940-41 bas- ketball season with a smashing triumph over the Alumni by a score of 102-56. The present team matched every star of yes- teryear with a star of its own and won easily. Co-captain Bud Conley, commenc- his last year of basketball, was the high scorer of the evening with a grand total of 33 points. He was closely followed by Stutz Modzelewski, the nation’s leading scorer in 1939-40 who had 27 tallies. For the Alumni, Chet Jaworski, starred with his all-around playmaking and top total of 13 points, a meager amount for the f ormer ace. R. I. 83, LOWELL TEXTILE 38 The Rams chalked their second vic- tory of the campaign by trouncing the Tcxtilers by a margin of 45 points, 83-38. The visitors were no match for the fast Keaneymen who scored at will. Once The big six GRIST 135 Bill Rutledge again Coach Keaney used his reserves profusely and they showed to good advan- tage. Bill Rutledge was moved to a for- ward post in this game and performed handsomely tallying 14 points to finish second to Modzelewski who had 18, high for the game. Co-captain Warner Keaney excelled defensively clearing the boards with monotonous regularity. Bob Apple- bee, his mate, played well and also tallied 12 markers. R. I. 67, FRANKLIN MARSHALL 44 The first team to face State from out- side New England, was an easy foe and succumbed by a score of 67-44. Franklin Marshall, a highly regarded represen- tative from Pennsylvania gave Rhody a close battle for one half, but the superbly conditioned Rams, waltzed away from them in the second half and thus re- mained unbeaten. The Keaneymen had to come from behind to win this ballgame after trailing in the early part of the first half. The F M’s were the first of two teams from Pennsylvania to invade Kingston, the other being St. Joseph’s College also from Philadelphia. R. I. 74, ST. JOSEPH 66 The Rams chalked their second con- secutive victory over a Pennsylvania rival in three days when they outlasted the St. Joseph’s quintet to win by 74-66. A late surge by the visitors fell just short of catching the Rams and the latter tallied several important points in the late min- utes of the game. The Philadelphians, boasting only one senior, and the rest juniors and sophomores, were very im- pressive and gave the Statemen their first real tough contest. Their only senior, Larry Kenney, gave a very good exhibi- tion of floor work featured by his heliind- the back dribble. His markinanship was also of the best variety as was proven by 1941 136 his total of 23 points. Coach Ferguson and his squad were impressed wit h the Kingston campus and praised the care given them by the students. R. I. 83, NEW HAMPSHIRE 34 New Hampshire University came to Kingston and was smothered under an avalanche of Rhody baskets to the tune of 83-34. This was one of the worst defeats ever pinned by State on a conference op- ponent. The victory was also the first of the New England Conference. The Swaseymen were woefully weak as the score proves, and were the first victims of 1941. R. I. 92, U. OF MAINE 52 The University of Maine fared no better than their northern mates, from New Hampshire, and was trimmed by a 40 point margin, 92-52. The Oronomen displayed an inexperienced but large squad who held on doggedly for one half of the game but yielded in the second stanza. The Bears were the second con- ference foes and victims and thus gave the Rams their sixth consecutive win of the year. R. I. 70, PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 42 The annual clash held at the R. I. Auditorium between Rhode Island and Providence College resulted in a victory for the Keaneymen for the third straight year. The Friars were never in the ball game and their weak attempts to stop the Rams were unsuccessful. The superior Kingstonians had too much all around excellence for the Crottymen and won with ease. Rutledge and Conley starred offensively while Keaney and Shannon sparked the defense. Substitutions were were made freely by the Rams and the latter performed well. The Smith-hillers, presenting one of their smallest squads in years, were undefeated up until this time and showed promise. R. I. 83, NORTHEASTERN U. 53 The first contest between the Rams and the Huskies resulted in a victory for the locals by a score of 83-53. The game was played at Kingston and maintained the Rams’ unbeaten streak at home for the current campaign. Modzelewski tallied 26 points and starred offensively. GRIST 137 R. I. 84, MASSACHUSETTS STATE 39 In the first game of the second semes- ter, the Rams started another winning streak at the expense of a green outfit from Amherst. The visitors offered little opposition to the smooth working Ram unit. R. I. 60, WAYNE UNIVERSITY 52 A newcomer to last season’s schedule, Wayne University of Detroit, nearly up- set the applecart, but succumbed in the final half to the better conditioned home club. R. I. 89, BROWN UNIVERSITY 43 In a game which convincingly showed the true caliber of last season’s club, the Rams rode rough shod over a Brown five, which had spoiled their season last year. The game was hardly five minutes old, before the Keaneymen began to pour in the points from any angle with unerring accuracy. Except for Menty’s frequent substitution, the final score could have easily surpassed the century mark. Keaney and Son R. 1. 90, UNIVERSITY OF MAINE 45 Tile aimual Northern trip seemed to have its usual set of victories in store for the Rhode Island five, for it doubled the home team’s teams score to win handily. The Maine folk were mighty satisfied that the Rams did not duplicate the cen- tury score made there a few years ago. R. I. 72, NEW HAMPSHIRE UNIV. 31 The second game of the Northern Trip roved to be the easier of the two, as the waseymen failed to put a damper on the Conference title aspirations of the men from Rhody. R. I. 57, NORTHEASTERN 28 Coach Jimmy Dunn of the Huskies gave strict orders to freeze the ball con- ceding victory in the hope of keeping Rhode Island from rolling up a too im- pressive total. It worked during the first half, but in the second session the plan backfired, with the result that North- Stutz and the mayor 1941 138 eastern was held to the lowest score of any of the Rams’ opponents during the entire season. R. I. 96, WORCESTER TECH 67 Try as he might. Coach Keauey could not keep the score from mounting into the nineties. The RAMS were hot, and it was Worcester’s misfortune to be their opponent that night. Rud Conley, senior forward personally led the assault with a total of forty points, his high for one game during four years of playing col- legiate ball. R. I. 42, TUFTS COLLEGE 28 In a game which the Rams turned into a farce, because of the actions of the home club. Tufts gained the honor of scoring the least number of points against the Rams, which it could share with North- eastern University. The Jumbos resorted to the old freezing game, but when the Rams, try as they might to give the fans a basketball game, finally resorted to the home teams own style of play, they were greeted with a chorus of boos. Coach Keaney, who was the target of the boos, disgusted at the poor showing of sports- manship displayed, left the bench and took the squad w ' itli him. The Rams had little trouble in maintaining an early ac- quired lead. R. I. 50, SPRINGFIELD COLLEGE 59 In a game which saw the Rams lose their third game of the season, the Springfield College Maroons pinned a surprising defeat on the highly heralded Rhode Island Crew. A packed house watched the contest and saw r a team weary from the strain of continuous com- petition succumb before an inspired crew that was playing its last game of the year for a coach who was closing his coaching career. Ed Hickox, the Maroon mentor, had his boys tuned to the victory march, and they looked like sure winners throughout the contest, even after the Rams had come from behind to tie the game at 50 all with but five minutes re- maining to play. Varsity practice GRIST 139 R. I. 79, U. OF CONNECTICUT 61 Connecticut University’s undefeated Huskies came to Kingston very confident of capturing the contest but instead went back to Storrs a soundly beaten club. The Rams held Donnelly and Company well in check during the early part of the game and as the visitors tired in the later stages, they went to town. The final out- come left no doubt as to which was the better team. Warner Keaney did a good job in holding Donnelly to only 15 points. Conley, Rutledge, and Modzelewski pro- vided enough to make the victory sure. It was the fifth straight triumph over Con- necticut in three years. They had won nine straight before competing in New York. R. I. 57, ST. FRANCIS 42 Putting on a great show, before 18,000 fans, the Keaneyinen defeated St. Francis College from Brooklyn by a score of 57-42. It was their first appearance in Madison Square Garden and a very im- pressive one. It was good enough to war- rant their return later in the year in the Writers’ Tourney. Stutz set the high scor- ing mark of the season there with 22 points and the all around play of the Rams was appreciated by the New York- ers, who “took to the w ' ide open style of play of the locals like a duck takes to w ' ater.” They set a scoring record for one half by tallying 42 points and w ould have compiled a game record but for a spell of hard luck in the second stanza. A RAM SPECIAL accompanied the team to New York and brought over 1000 rooters to cheer them on to victory. Several hun- dred more made the trip by car. R. I. 38, TEMPLE 42 Making an unbelievable comeback in the second half, the Rhode Island Rams basketball team just failed to win their game with Temple University at Conven- tion Hall, Philadelphia and lost by four points 42-38 in overtime. The contest w r as one of the best there in years. The Kings- tonians were held to 8 points in the initial half and came back to shut the home team out for 14 minutes of the last period and hold them to five points. It was the greatest ever made by a Keaney coached team and thrilled the capacity crowd of 16,000 no end. This was their first setback in 11 games. R. I. 80, SPRINGFIELD 47 The Rams scored an easy win over their Eastern Massachusetts rivals whom they had not met the year before, to the tune of 80-47. It was their 13th consecutive triumph at home of the year and kept their record clean for the second straight year. The Ilickoxmen although a big lot, could not cope w ith the uncanny shooting of the locals and the latter’s condition was too good for the Indians. R. I. 62, CONNECTICUT 63 In one of the roughest and worst of- ficiated games ever played at Storrs, the Keaneyinen were nosed out by one point and thus suffered their second defeat of the season in 21 games. The game W ' as slopped several times and several riots threatened to break out. The Rams made a stirring comeback after trailing throughout most of the game and only poor officiating kept them from winning. This loss placed them in a tie for the New England Conference championship with the Huskies making it the fifth year in a row that State either was sole champion of the conference or was part title holder. Overcrowded conditions at the Hawley gym hampered the players no little. R. I. 98, PROVIDENCE 71 Compiling their second largest total of points scored all season, the Kingston- ians swamped an inferior Friar quintet at Rodman Hall by a score of 98-71. The Smilh-Hillers tried vainly to match the Rams shot for shot with some success at first but weakened in the end. Bud Con- ley and Warner Keaney making their final appearances before the home fans played splendidly, the former tallying 29 points the high for the night and the latter playing a good defensive game. This victory clinched the state series for the Rams for the second third consecu- tive year. R. I. 75, BROWN UNIVERSITY 74 A vastly different Brown team from the one which succombed to the Ram slaughter earlier in the season took the court at Marvel Gymnasium for the Rams’ last regularly scheduled game. But the Rams were out to break the jinx 1941 140 which had dogged them every year for the last three. The game was played hard and fast throughout, with the officials taking turns in being too lax and too strict. However, it wasn’t until the last minute of play that the real excitement began. With the Rams one point behind. Bud Conley made fast work of his free throw and sent the game into the over- time. Then it was for Jim Harvey, a sub- stitute, to come into the game when Con- ley fouled out and with the coolness and calm of a veteran scored a basket and free throw in rapid succession to give the Rams the victory. It was a fine climax to the best season enjoyed by any previous Keaney coached five. R. I. 54, SETON HALL 70 In the annual Sportswriters Invitation Tournament in New York, the Rams had the misfortune to meet, at that time, the hottest team in the country in the person of Seton Hall College. These boys from South Orange were red hot and they never let up. They were led by one of the best players ever to appear on the Gardeii floor in Bob Davies, who person- ally led his team’s assault. The Rhody men, weakened by illness, which kept Warner Keaney and Bill Rutledge from atta inin g top form didn’t look like their usual self. This loss eliminated the Kca- neymen from further competition this year and still left them leading the pack in New England. RESUME OF THE FRESHMAN BASKETBALL SEASON Consistent with his policy of other years. Coach Keaney took his group of comparatively raw, inexperienced first year men, schooled them in the funda- mentals of basketball the Keaney way, and moulded a squad with characteristic Keaney success. Perhaps not as formid- able as the showing of recent Ramlet court clubs, but every bit as creditable, was the record of seven wins and four losses which the frosh hoopsters regis- tered in averaging 61.3 points per game. Somewhat sluggish at the start, the team work and shooting improved notice- ably with every game, and by the end of the schedule the yearlings were a smooth, well-coordinated unit. Two of the four re- verses were by one and two point mar- gins, but in the season’s wind-up the Brown basketeers thoroughly shellacked the Ramlets, in the process amassing the highest total ever tallied against any Rhode Island court team. The State year- lings were twice upset by Providence Col- lege, and they split the series with both Brown and Connecticut. George Mearns was easily the ace per- former for the team as well as their most prolific scorer. He looms as the most seri- ous threat for a varsity berth next year. Norm Merette shone offensively, and played some nice games until he was de- clared scholastically ineligible. Jack Do- herty, Ted Cole, Nat Federico, George Gill, Dave Hedison, and Walt Sullivan composed the rest of the squad which saw considerable service over the season’s schedule.

Over a period of years Coach Fred D. Tootell has elevated the name of Rhody high among the leading track and field teams of the East. In fact, many larger univer- sities found it wiser to discontinue athletic relations with State rather than risk the loss of prestige which a defeat would necessarily occasion. Extending their dual meet victory trail over a five year period, the Tootellmen triumphed over some formidable opposi- tion last spring, including Manhattan, Boston College, and Brown. Most dis- hearting, however, were the results of the New Englands. After a three year supremacy, Rhode Island bowed to Holy Cross, losing by the slimmest of all mar- gins, one quarter of a point. Outstanding performers during the spring season were Senecal, Wilcox, Oli- ver, Fort, Dixon, Black, the Perkinses, and Kelman. VARSITY TRACK TEAM Front Row: Cuddy, Clarke, Senecal. Perkins, Kelman.

A glance at their amazing record reveals that in every dual meet, these first year men tallied at least 100 points while new Freshman records were set by Krueger, Low, Bag- shaw, Nichols, and Taylor. Preliminary warm-up meets with the best track teams among the State high schools were quite one-sided, and Lock- wood, Westerly, Mt. Pleasant, Hope, Cranston, LaSalle, and Central were dis- posed of with relative ease. In the same fashion Connecticut and Brown offered little resistance, and both succumbed to the all-around power of the Ram year- lings. MKET RECORD R. 1 . 116 Lockwood, Westerly, Mt. Pleasant 38 R.

CONNECTICUT Always a stumbling block in the Ram path, a dogged Nutmegger crew was forced to yield to a persistent State at- tack. Rice, Koch, and Conley were out- standing for the Storrsmen. NEICAAA MEET After riding roughshod over all oppo- sition throughout the season, Rhode Is- land was forced to yield the track crown to Holy Cross although actually only one- quarter of a point separated victor from vanquished at the finish. Even more dis- appointing, however, was the fact that a win for the Rams w ould have insured per- manent possession of the huge trophy which had been retained in Kingston the past three years. The meet followed form for the most part, and was not decided until the last event, the 220 yard dash had been run off. Holy Cross placed McShane and Johnson one and two in this event to clinch the meet. Boh Dixon finished a pretty second in the 440, then picked up a fourth in the 880 while the javelin crew of Davis, Per- kins, and Whaley produced handsomely. The final total was Holy Cross 27 points, Rhode Island 26% points. ICAAAAA MEET Participating in only a few r scattered events, the Rhody representatives col- lected six points, chiefly through the ef- forts of Ed and Ken Perkins and Bui) Whaley. This aggregate gave Rhode Is- land a tie for 16th place. Pittsburgh University’s well-balanced unit won the meet with 29% points, Penn State was second with 24, and Yale third with 20 points.

Coach Keaney’s baseballers were relin- quishing the Conference crown to North- eastern. Weakness at the plate, always a chronic ailment of current State nines, evidenced itself in the more important, major games and resulted in the loss of many close one-point and extra-inning games. The hurling staff of Keaney, Ab- bruzzi, and Rutledge pitched capably enough to win more games than they did, but the inability of their mates to hit in the clutches often meant the difference of victory and defeat. The Keaneymen encountered their dis- astrous losing streak in the week from May 4 to May 11, losing four out of five tilts. Northeastern swept a double header, each game a one-run win.

Lyman Cranston, sensational Sopho- more gardener, as well as the Duke led the attack at the plate with three hits each. In all, the Rams garnered eighteen hits which were good for 26 bases to score an easy victory. RHODE ISLAND 14, MAINE 1 Led by the impressive pitching of Sophomore Bill Rutledge, State won its second straight game at the expense of the University of Maine. Coach Keaney used Duke Abbruzzi and his son Warner as well as “Billy” on the mound due to the damp weather. At the plate Frank Zammarclii and Bud Conley led the State onslaugli with three hits each. The State batsmen col- lected a grand total of 15 hits. Johnston, the Bear’s first baseman and Mann, their catcher, sparkled defensively and offensively. RHODE ISLAND 0, PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 8 The Providence College nine stopped the State two-gaine winning streak with an 8 to 0 whitewashing. Amby Reynolds. Providence’s star hurler. set back the State batsmen with only three scattered hits. Jim Leo led the visitors with three hits. RHODE ISLAND 13, BOSTON 6 State returned to the winning column by beating Boston University at Boston by a score of 13 to 6. Duke Abbruzzi won his second game of the season by pitching effectively in the clutches. Bud Conley again led the State batters by collecting four out of five, including a home-run and a triple. RHODE ISLAND 3, NEW HAMPSHIRE 5 State lost its second game of the season to the University of New 7 Hampshire nine by a score of 5 to 3. Bill Rutledge started on the mound for Rhode Island, and did some fine pitching. It was the first victory for New Hampshire in tw o years over the Keaneymen. RHODE ISLAND 2, NORTHEASTERN 3 RHODE ISLAND 4, NORTHEASTERN 5 Rhode Island suffered a double defeat at the hands of Northeastern. Both games were lost in the last innings. Duke Ab- bruzzi and Bill Rutledge were the pitch- ing victims, although they hurled well enough to win. The Rams attack was light. Frank Zammarclii and Lyman Cranston did well for State team at bat and in the field. RHODE ISLAND 5, BROWN 1 Keaney pitched the Rams to a 5 to 1 victory over their intra-state rivals. Brown. The victory was the fourth of the season for tin Ram nine. Rhode Island’s big inning came in the third when they gathered three runs to go into the lead which they never relin- quished. RHODE ISLAND 6, CONNECTICUT 7 Rhode Island lost a hard fought game in an extra inning clash at Storrs. A home run by the Connecticut pitcher w as the deciding factor. State batsmen outhit the home team with eleven safe hits. Zammarclii, Con- ley, Cranston, and Abbruzzi led the Ram attack at the plate. RHODE ISLAND 11. WORCESTER 1 Featured by the pitching of Warner Keaney, who held Worcester Tech liitless for seven innings. The State nine swamped the Engineers eleven to one. The Rams c ollected 19 hits of every variety. 1941 150 ACE UTILITY MAN His name and fame were never heralded to any appreciable extent, yet the role which Frank Zammarchi has played for Rhode Island State College baseball nines these past four years has been a truly valuable one. It is only fit- ting that his efforts receive some special consideration and commendation here. Coach Keaney, more than anybody else, is probably aware of the valuable versa- tility of “Zam”, his ace utility man, whom he has always called upon to fill any weak spot in the line-up. And true to form, the likeable Zammarchi has never failed to produce in his make-shift position. An all-Massachusetts selection for third base for two consecutive years, Zam- marchi covered the hot corner during the freshman campaign. Since that time, however, he has seen service at s econd base, behind the bat, and in the outfield. At present “Zam” holds down the key- stone sack, hut there is no telling what position he will finally take over should a change in the line-up be necessary. Zammarchi is a deadly sticker, especi- ally in the pinches, a smooth fielder, and a smart, heady, polished performer. His type of hall-player is too much taken for granted, seldom, if ever, fully appreci- ated by the average baseball fan. Waiting to hit Running the bases 151 TENNIS Along with many other things. Spring brings with it the sport of the swingsters, not the dancers in this case, hut the var- sity tennis competition. The bank and the lawn behind the sororities, facing the courts, have served as a very handy gal- lery for some time now, for the crowds who turn out regularly on warm, sunny afternoons to cheer the Rhode Island netmen on to victory. For tennis, recog- nized only for the past two years as a varsity sport, is rapidly becoming popu- lar here at Rhode Island. True enough, the Ram tennister’s record of 2 wins and 5 losses does not ap- pear very impressive on paper, and it must be admitted that they experienced a poor season. Nevertheless, when it is con- sidered that each game of their northern trip. Bates and New Hampshire, was de- cided by a single point, and the Maine match by two points a better idea of their relative strength can be obtained. Cap- tain Gus Ide, the sole letterman of Coach Knickerbocker’s team, was consistently the best performer over the season’s schedule. Generally speaking, the rest of the team, owing to a lack of varsity ex- perience and competitive play, could not measure up to the standards of the oppo- sition which they encountered. Those men earning their letter were Harold Warren, Vito D’Ambra, A1 Villatico, and Fred Tew. Other Rhody netmen were Hey, Ferguson, Godowski, Robinson, and Kelley. Villatico, Tew, Hey, and Ferguson will be returning this spring, while French, Baylia, and Allen should prove valuable additions from last year’s freshman team. R. 1. 8 Boston University 1 R.

Playing much stiffer oppo- sition as a result of its new lettersport status, the Ram golfers, overcoming a shaky start, proceeded to bowl over all comers with monotonous regularity. Caught in the throes of an early season slump. Coach Cieurzo’s divot-diggers yielded three decisions to Harvard, Brown, and M. I.

The many contests are always hard-fought, but clean, and the different leagues provide much fun and rivalry for all who compete. Seeking to increase the efficiency of the many leagues and to further coordinate their functions. Coach Paul Cieurzo working with representatives of the Poly- gon has introduced a new intramural system, an aggregate point system, which will include ping pong and volleyball as competitive sports. The outstanding in- tramural fraternity will be that one which amasses the highest total of points from September through May. As in past years, however, trophies will be donated for individual sports. Theta Chi and Beta Phi exercised a virtual monopoly over the fraternity leagues last spring. Theta Chi captured both the track and the baseball titles while Beta Phi was runner-up in both these departments. Krueger, varsity weight-man, accounted for many of Theta Chi’s points while Lewis was Beta Phi’s high man. In the newly formed touch football league Beta Phi became the first campus champ by virtue of their final victory over Sigma Alpha Epsilon in the playoffs. 154 The scores of these four games necessary to crown the champion w r ere 38-30 (S. A. E.), 6-6, 19-0 (Beta Phi) , and 32-18 (Beta Phi). Theta Chi with Bud Conley and A1 Pansar, and Rho Iota Kappa with Lownds and Smith starring were strong clubs. Maintaining their supremacy in the fall sports. Beta Phi retained the cross- country title for the second consecutive year w hen they bunched five men among the first eleven finishers. For the winners Lewis led the pack finishing 5th, Zweir followed in 6th place, Hildebrand 8th, Bridges 9th, and Callahan 11th. Glen Wood, off-campus representative, won the mile and a quarter race by a comfort- able margin over Smith of P. I. K., which fraternity captured second place. Beta Psi Alpha brought an end to Beta Phi domination in the basketball ranks by annexing the court championship in a three game series. Beta Psi eked out a 37-36 w in in the opening game, dropped the second 54-29, but roa red hack with a pretty exhibition of teamwork and bril- liant shooting to take the rubber game 49-25. Federicci, Codola, and DeCesare, were the offensive stand-outs, Romano and Renola the defensive stars and play- makers. The defeat was especially bitter for Beta Phi since a win would have re- tired the permanent trophy for them. Rockwell and Zweir were Beta Psi main- stays throughout the tense series. Fraternity Baseball 155 The sport of ping-pong, enjoying intra- mural competition and supervision for the first time, was successfully inaug- urated, and eliminations were run off without any difficulty. A1 Strehlke of Sigma Alpha Epsilon displayed cham- pionship form in finally outclassing Charley Goldstein of Alpha Epsilon Pi to win the singles crown. In the doubles matches Alpha Epsilon Pi emerged the winner as the combination of Sperling and Goldstein remained undefeated in the elimination series. Shortly before Easter vacation the vol- leyball championship was decided when Rho Iota Kappa conquered Beta Phi in the finals with relative ease. The entire team of Smith, Haiuiah, Lownds, Doher- ty, McCabe, and Prybyla played excep- tionally well, and their superiority was easily apparent. Rockwell, Lewis, and Clegg were the losers’ best bets. This spring Theta Chi will be defend- ing two titles, track and baseball, and al- though they seem certain to retain the track title, some sturdy competition will be provided for them by Beta Phi, last year’s finalists, Rho Iota Kappa, and Beta Psi Alpha. The leagues this year are divided into the American and National leagues, and the final champion will be decided when the top team from each league clashes in the mythical campus series, the best two Beta Phi — Football Cliampj 1941 156 out of three games. A smaller, near-sized baseball lias been introduced, and both the distance to the bases and the distance from home-plate to the pitcher’s mound have been lengthened to regulation dis- tance in order to approach real baseball playing conditions as much as possible. Rho Iota Kappa boasts of two new ad- ditions from varsity and freshman ranks in Lownds and Ward to supplement their veteran team of Maher, Mantenuto, La- vallee, Obradovich, Smith, Moreau, and Dubee. Theta Chi will depend upon Tracy, Giordano, Siravo, Carpenter, McFawn, and Morel, holdovers from last year’s nine, to retain their title, but they have numerous key positions to fill, the most noticeable weak link being the pitching slot. Except for one position. Beta Phi will field the same club which finished in the runner-up berth last spring, and they must be considered a serious challenge to the other leading fraternities. Among those returning to the baseball wars for Beta Phi will be Zweir, Clegg, Rockwell, Callahan, Peck, Gil and Bob Gelineau. Beta Psi Alpha with DeCesare, Picozzi, and Federicci will be stronger. Sigma Alpha Epsilon with Modzelewski and Johnson will be greatly improved, and these two fraternities may develop into the dark horses of the race. Beta Phi — Cross Country Champs GRIST 157 COACH JO LEES 158 JOSEPHINE TOWNSEND LEES HERE has been on the campus a faculty member to whom the students felt free to come with their individual problems. This per- son is Josephine Townsend Lees more com- monly known as just plain “Joey.” The majority of students, both male and female, have found Joey a sympathetic listener, an untiring worker, and an all around good sport. Much of Joey ' s work is done a la Robin Hood style. While you are discussing your difficulty with Joey, her large brown eyes will snap and then you know that she has some plan in mind. You perhaps will never know when or how your problem was solved, but presto chango, you suddenly find that one day all of your troubles have been ironed out. If you stopped to figure how this all happened (and very few of us ever bother I you will find that far out of the limelight Joey has been at work again. Joey was born in the northeastern section of of Pennsylvania in the large city of Bethlehem. In high school she was very active, having been captain of both the swimming and tennis teams, athletic editor of the school magazine, secretary of her class, and one of the speakers at the commencement exercises. While in high school, Joey worked diligently trying to get her school to participate in inter-school varsity sports. To this day Liberty High School is carrying on the fight. Joey entered Pennsylvania State College in September, 1926, matriculating in the School of Liberal Arts. Here she began her career as one of the outstanding members of the Nu Gamma chapter of the Chi Omega Sorority. For four years she was a member of the Women’s Athletic Association of which she was president her senior year, vice-president of the Glee Club, a member of the College Choir, secretary of Phi Sigma Iota, national honorary romance language fraternity, and a member of the Mortar Board. At Penn State a silver athletic cup is given to the woman athlete who has obtained a score of 175 points. Usually this presentation is made to a senior; Joey, however, earned a varsity “S” sweater and she had accumulated enough points to obtain the silver cup her Junior year. This was the first and only lime that a junior girl was able to accomplish such a feat. Joey participated in varsity hockey, track, rifle, basketball, and base- ball. She used her fine athletic abilities through- out the summer vacations by acting as head athletic counselor at Camp Rohman, Douring- ton, Pennsylvania. In 1929 another honor was bestowed on Miss Lees when she was chosen to represent the college at a sectional athletic con- vention at North Carolina College; later she was also sent to the national convention at the Uni- versity of Michigan. June 1930, marked the end of Joey’s brilliant college career as she grad- uated from Penn State, third honor girl in her The year 1931 was a very fortunate one for Rhode Island State for Joey came to this college to act as secretary to President Raymond G. Bressler, and to instruct in English. As a side line Joey coached varsity sports and held eve- ning classes in clog dancing. In 1934 she had charge of the entire varsity program and the Women’s Physical Education Department. As- suming her athletic duties at Rhode Island she immediately began to broaden the athletic picture. Schedules were lengthened, the con- stitution of the Women’s Athletic Association was revamped and modernized, managers were named through a definite promotion system, and systematic records were maintained for both intramural and intercollegiate sports. Under Miss Lees much progress was made in varsity sports until today women’s athletics at Rhode Island are on a par with the men’s teams. Joey’s fine coaching has allowed her teams to compete with such teams as Posse, Savage, Drexel, Boston All-Stars, Ursinus, Panser, Beaver, and Temple. The Ramlettes take long ' rips, have an annual banquet, award R. I. sweaters to the varsity athletes and certificates to the squad members. An extensive intramural program was also planned and carried out each year. One of Joey’s other novel ideas was the inauguration of faculty and student nights. The admiration and respect the girls have for their coach is proven by the unselfish training rules that her athletes maintain. The co-eds train daily and even conduct pre-season practices, remain on campus during recesses, and pass up dances just so that they may present their best on the field of combat. In 1940 Joey began to work for a Master’s degree at Columbia University in New Y ' ork. After attending school for only approximately five months she was elected to membership in Pi Lambda Theta, an honorary fraternity for women in education. “This fraternity strives to foster professional spirit and to encourage high standards in professional training and research. Miss Lees is qualified for membership because she has given an indication of unusual prof es- sional interest, social competence, and promise in the field of education.” This fall Joey undertook another task — for years she has tried to find a hockey hook that contained new 1 techniques and ideas. Upon not being able to find such a publication she pro- ceeded to write an up-to-date book entitled “Field Hockey for Girls.” This book will lie released by the Barnes Publishing Company in the fall of 1941. The book was accepted by the publishers over various other hockey manuals because of its fine presentation, explanations, and descriptions of hockey. This is a tribute to Joey’s system of hockey for her work will be distributed and copied throughout the United States. Joey’s fine, all-around record reassures us that the absence of this dynamic person will be greatly felt by the administration and the stu- dents. After nine years of sincere hard work in the Physical Education Department, Joey leaves this campus to work for a Doctor’s degree at Columbia University. We, the class of 1941, realize how fortunate we have been to have Joey remain with us during our four years at Rhode Island Slate — an experience and pleasure for which no amount of money can be laid down as an initial payment. Good luck and the best of everything to you, Joey! GRIST 159 WOMEN’S FIELD HOCKEY Co-Captains Anna Moskalyk and Margaret T iiackeray Manager Lee Clarke Coach Josephine T. Lees The gate receipts from the infamous Tarzan-Amazon game played in 1937 helped to send three members of the hockey squad to hockey camp at Mt. Pocono, Pa. Co-captains Margaret Thack- eray and Anna Moskalyk, and Miriam Shanley were instructed by Constance K. Appleby. A squad of 24 members returned Freshman Week to start hockey practice. The first game was played September 28th with the Alums. The Kingston las- sies easily won this opener by a score of 5-0. The Rhode Island hockey team ended the 1940 season with only two defeats. The Boston Field Hockey Club composed of players who have been on the All American team edged out the Ramleltes by a 4-3 victory. This was the first time the All-Stars performed in Kingston, and it is hoped that this game will remain on the Rhode Island schedule. Rhode Island also bowed to the powerful Ursinus Team; the Ramlettes could not hold the famous stick handlers from Philadel- phia, who scored a total of 6 goals — more than all of the other Rhode Island oppon- ents could total combined.

Nancy was high scorer with 10 goals; Marjory Whitaker ranked second with 7 goals. The fine defensive work of Co-Captains Moskalyk and Thackeray, Jane Sanborn, Ann Chaharyn, and Miriam Shanley, helped to keep the number of goals scored by opponents down to 11. The varsity team was most successful while on tour in New York. There games with Hofstra and N. Y. U. were won. The hockey game at Hofstra was played after four days of rain — mud packs were the vogue. While playing the N. Y. U. game the R. I. team had a bit of difficulty in scoring because of the snow. In this con- test, Marjory Whitaker’s stick broke and upon receiving another she immediately scored the only goal of the game. This year Coach Lees loses eight varsity players; these are Captains Thackeray and Moskalyk, Barbara Webster, Betty Williams, Hazel Joyce, Jane Sanborn, Ann Chaharyn, and Alice Jewell. Ann Chaharyn GRIST 161 WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Mary Clarkin Co-Captains Hazel Joyce and Jane Sanborn Manager Phyllis Arnold Coach Josephine T. Lees Kingston, “the center of the basketball kingdom,” was also the center of some fancy shooting by the women athletes. After eliminating many girls, Joey still had 36 athletes who were worthy of re- maining on the basketball squad. With such a large number the coach was able to schedule both varsity and junior varsity games. This year the Ramlettes played 11 teams, the majority of which came from outside of New England. The opening game was played with the alums; al- though many former stars returned to the scene the Rhode Island hoopsteretles were able to overcome this strong team. Front Row: Selby, Williams, Sanborn, Moskalyk, Bristow Second Row: D’Arcy, Carpenter, Barlow, Benheimer, Clarkin 162 For the third consecutive year Betty Benheimer was the highest scorer with a total of 79 points. Nancy Carpenter came in second with 58 points. The basketball team will greatly miss the nucleus of the team with the graduation of the two fine guards Hazel Joyce and Jane Sanborn. Co-captain Mary Clarkin will be the only guard remaining from this great trio. The following girls made varsity bas- ketball this year: Co-captains Hazel Joyce and Jane Sanborn, Mary Clarkin, Betty Benheimer, Jane Barlow, Betty Williams, Anna Moskalyk, Nancy Car- penter, Muriel Selbey, aud Mary D’Arcy. With the majority of the regulars re- turning plus the additional stars dis- covered on the junior varsity, the Rhode Island basketball team should soar to new heights in 1942.

The skill of the Rhode Island sharp-shooters is proven by the fact that in a match the girls’ team was able to out-shoot the men’s team. Last year for the first time the Wom- an’s Rifle Club awarded letters to two of its senior members. Marguerite Kent and Patricia Damon. The club has par- ticipated in both postal and shoulder to shoulder matches. In the postal matches Rhode Island has “covered the country” shooting with teams from the University of Maine to the University of California. In March, the team travelled to Philadel- phia to shoot with the strong Drexel Club. Making the trip were Captain Mar- guerite Kent, Louise Platt, Patricia Damon, Myra Palmer, Jeanne Smith, ami Ruth Goeckel. First Rote: Platt, Damon. Kent, Crandall.

The first game was played with Hofstra, a strong New York team — the Rhode Island out- fit lost this match 4-1. St. Joseph’s, Rhode Island, and Connecticut participated in a round robin at Storrs, Connecticut. In this match the Rhode Island team came in second with 5 points. A third match was cancelled because of inclement weather. This year tennis again made another step forward. A trip to New York has been planned and as the Grist goes to press several colleges are trying to sched- ule tennis matches with Rhode Island. The Women’s Athletic Association voted to award a sweater to Betty Rich- mond, the star tennis player for three years. Betty is the first and only tennis player to whom such a presentation has been made.

The most important function of the organ- ization is to oversee the rushing campaigns; rules are formulated and enforced by this body in re- lation to rushing. Besides de- termining and regulating rush- ing rules the Polygon settles dis- putes between the fraternities and acts as an intermediary between the college and the fraternities. The membership of the Poly- gon consists of two representa- tives from each fraternity and three faculty advisers. In order that the organization remain im- partial, officers are elected by a rotation system and an entirely new set presides each year. The Polygon also takes charge of interfraternity events such as the annual interfraternity sing which is held each spring and supervises the intra-mural sports programs.

Its first home was at the Peckham Homestead, the present N. Y. A. Head- quarters. From here P. I. K. moved to quarters in East Hall. The next home was the Boardman House. The present chap- ter house was opened in 1927 and the social-room enlarged in 1937. During the World War, P. I. K. con- tributed some sixty men, seven of whom failed to return. A plaque at the house is dedicated to their memory. Among the more prominent Rho Iota Kappas are: Dean Emeritus George E. Adams, former Dean Paul F. Burgess, Colonel Thomas W. Freeman, William Whelan, Lucius Whipple, President of R. 1. C. E., Leslie Keegan, William Clarke and Harold Q. Moore. Founded with the underlying princi- ples of good fellowship and brotherhood, P. 1. K. has continually grown stronger. The fraternity has seen one generation pass and is now looking forward to the second. 1941 170 FRATRES IN FACULTATE Professor Howland Burdick Mr. Edmund V. Godowski Professor Leslie A.

Knowledge of the society’s exist- ence first became known to the campus on December 22, 1909 when a formal “coming out” party was held in Lippitt Hall. Sigma Delta’s petition for a charter was granted by Theta Chi fraternity on March 18, 1911. It is interesting to note that Eta chapter was the first national on this campus. Theta Chi has maintained several places of residence. At first the meetings were held in the attic of “Star Gables,” a house on North Road; then at Tavern Hall; in the fall of 1910, the Church House; and in 1921 moved to its present location. Eta chapter of Theta Chi the first fraternity house to maintain a boarding department and also the first to have a house mother. In 1936, the fraternity celebrated its 25th anniver- sary of national affiliation with the publi- cation of a hook that reviewed its history. Theta Chi was destroyed by fire in 1937 but by 1938 the Theta Chi’s once again took possession of one of the finest build- ings associated with the college. 1941 172 FRATRES IN FACULTATE Dr. Harold W.

From the beginning. Professor John Barlow has been associated with the fraternity and much can be credited to his interest and efforts. Beta Phi built its second home in 1913, and burned the mortgage in 1926. This building was the first to be built as a fraternity house at Rhode Island State. In 1931, this bouse being too small, plans were made and by 1932 the present house was finished and occupied. The ef- fort, work, and sacrifices of the brothers who made possible this expansion is exemplified in the spirit that is character- istic of the fraternity; the ideals of unity and progress upon which the fraternity was founded can be traced not only in the history of the fraternity, but can be seen in the contributions made to the college. 174 FRATRES IN FACULTATE Acting President John P.

Gilchrist, B. R. Robinson, W. C. Matthews, C. B. Edmonds, and P. E. Freeman. In 1913 the fraternity was large enough so that a residence could be rented. By 1917 the ground was being broken for a new home. Finished in 1918, it was oc- cupied as an officers’ headquarters during the First W orld W ar. In 1935 the chapter was completely rebuilt and a large wing was added to it.

The original Chapter was formed at Boston University on November 2, 1909. Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity now embraces a representa- tion of undergraduate chapters all over the United States and in Canada; and alumni representation in all parts of the globe. There are over 108 alumni associa- tions and the total membership is nearly 30,000 men, 1,600 of which are under- graduates. In the fall of 1914, on October 9, Eta Zeta was installed at Rhode Island State College as a charter member of that grow- ing young National fraternity. Lambda Chi Alpha. Since then it has been the pleasant task of the various historians to record a series of events marking a period of almost thirty years of uninterrupted progress for Eta. Likewise the life of the national organization to date has been marked by more than a decade of sound expansion and progress almost without parallel in the history of American Col- lege Fraternities. Rhode Island may be justly proud of Lambda Chi Alpha’s achievements to date, both on Kingston Hill and throughout the nation. 1941 178 FRATRES IN FACULTATE Dr. Vernon I. Cheadle Professor Donald E.

During the period 1929 to 1934 the fraternity was domiciled in what is now known as the Phi Sigma House. In 1934, after the completion of a new home, the chapter was moved to its present loca- tion within the college gates. During its activity as Sigma Alpha Epsilon the fra- ternity has been prominent in the divers fields of endeavor open to its members.

Needing larger quarters the Club bought the Boardman House. The name Rhode Island Campus Club was changed in 1929 and the name Phi Beta Chi was adopted, making it the seventh Greek letter fraternity on the campus. Early in 1934 the present site was chosen. The new home was occupied im- mediately upon completion in November of the same year. Since 1935 the fraternity had been seriously considering nationalization. Tau Kappa Epsilon was petitioned to this end. The inspection was passed with fly- ing colors, and at a regular meeting of the fraternity on April 9, 1937 an unani- mous vote of the members indicated their willingness to take immediate advantage of this grant.

The fol- lowing year with increased membership the group secured quarters in the old Lambda Chi Alpha house. As the chapter prospered the prospect of nationaliza- tion became an important factor of policy. Offers from many nationals were considered and finally, in April, 1928 it was decided to affiliate with Alpha Epsi- lon Pi. At the time of the induction. Dr. Howard Edwards was initiated as an honorary brother, the first faculty mem- ber in the national fraternity. It was with his aid that the present 6ite of the chap- ter house was secured and in 1930 the construction of the new building was completed. The tenth anniversary of the founding of Rho chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi was observed in 1938. The fraternity could look back at a decade of rapid growth and internal organization. In this period the men of A. E. Pi had developed a tradition of outstanding achievement in scholarship and participation in activi- ties of the college. FRATRES IN FACULT ATE Dr. Ralph K.

Members are selected at the end of their sophomore year by their respective sororities and serve on the Council during their Junior and Senior years. Officers are active for one year and are chosen in rotation from the sororities in the order of their establishment on campus. The first problem confronting Pan-Hellenic each year is the ex- planation of rushing rules to the freshman girls, which is followed up by the preparation of fresh- man date-books, the governing of rushing itself, and finally the presentation of bids. The meetings are held every other week, during which time inter-sorority relations are dis- cussed and Greek letter problems attacked. Pan-Hellenic holds its annual hall in March. For the past few years it has been in Roosevelt Hall. Themoney taken in each year is used for scholar- ships in the fall. A scholarship is presented to the girl in each class attaining the highest scholastic record for the previous year, and the Pan-Hellenic shield is awarded to the sophomore girl who made the highest record during the first semester of her freshman year. In 1940 this was awarded to Lura Mae Odland. The three scholarships went to Barbara Webster, Elinor Whe- lan, and Lura Mae Odland. GRIST 195 Front Rote: Webster, Jewell, V. Williams, Farnsworth.

It might he said in closing that the Association is looked upon more favorably than non-frater- nity organizations on most other campuses. 204 FACULTY ADVISERS Dr. Lee C. Wilson Dr. Edward M. J.

Thackeray Milton Waltcher Tin Sachems is an honorary organization made up of fifteen seniors who are tapped in May of their J unior year by the outgoing senior members. The eleven men and four women students are chosen on the basis of their participation in campus activities and creditable scholarship. The name Sachem is the Indian name for “chief”, and although not a campus governing body, the Sachems are regarded as leaders and are respected for their sincere interest in student affairs. During the past year, they have engaged in a busy program and have shown their efficiency by enforcing Freshman rules, under the super- vision of the Vigilantes, by conducting class elec- tions, and running the Mayorality campaign. From the Sachem group, committees have been appointed to work out solutions for various col- lege problems. Progress has been made on the establishment of a student government associa- tion. The members have discussed campus prob- lems and have tried to act as a connecting link between students and faculty members. The mem- bers of the Sachems are distinguished by blue jackets, with Indian Head emblem on the pocket. 1941 214 WOMEN S STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION Women’s Student Government Association is one of the most important, active, and respected organizations at Rhode Island State College. All the women students in college are members of the W. S. G. A.; student council is composed of officers, and representatives of the various classes, elected by the women students. This organization is concerned with seeing that the prescribed rules of co-ed conduct are enforced and regulated; at regularly held bi-monthly meetings violators of the rules are brought before the council for trial and punishment. W. S. G. A. sponsors and super- vises the annual May Day activities. Judging from the effectiveness with which the organization functions, it is evident that W. S. G. A. is an excellent example of how stu- dents can cooperate and govern themselves with a minimum of control from the faculty.

The members of the staff are all seniors who have shown an interest in their respective positions and who have, to the best of their ability, tried to portray the college in all its activities. The Grist holds a banquet each year together with the Beacon, at which time the publication is previewed and keys are awarded to the staff. Front Rote: Pansar. Belisle. Wallcher, I.adouceur. Conley.

It is issued each Thursday evening. This year has been an exceptional one for the paper, with numerous excellent editorials, good sport write-ups, biogra- phies of faculty members, columns, and a com- plete report on all campus events. With The Beacon, the students receive the Collegiate Digest, every two weeks. The Beacon board and staff is chosen in Febru- ary and until the next February its members spend many late and hectic evenings in the office in Davis Hall, calling for assignments, rewriting, typing, counting space material, setting up, and just generally worrying. Each class has a chance sometime during the year to put out a special edition of its own. The junior issue comes out just before Prom, the sophomore before the Hop, and the freshman before the Freshman Banquet. The staff ' s for these issues are especially selected by members of the regular Beacon. The last paper of the year is the Commencement issue which is dedicated to the Senior Class. The paper is representative of student ideas, and will publish all letters, answers, and articles on college problems or individual ideas. Often the paper is instrumental in bringing about much-needed changes in college routine. BEACON BOARD 1940-1941 Editor-in-C h i ef Milton Waltcher Managing Editor, David M.

Picketl, Brousseau OFFICERS President Edmund Lebrun Vice-President Robert Taylor Secretary Sylvia Howland Adviser Dorenzo Kinney In the fall of 1929 the Rhode Island State Col- lege Chapter of the 4-H Cluh was founded. The club membership is made up of those college stu- dents who were 4-H Club members in previous years, and attempts to carry on and coordinate the w ork started by the members in their local organ- izations. Two of the aims of the club are educa- tional and social which play an important role in all the affairs which the College 4-H Club con- ducts. Important among the clubs activities for this year were hot dog roasts, bowling parties, and the sponsoring of the meeting of the 4-H Club All Stars, at the college, in the spring. At this time a banquet and dance were given for the members and the All Stars. 1941 218 THE FRESHMAN BIBLE The Freshman Bible is the small, compact handbook which freshmen students purchase along with freshman caps and green rihhons. By the time they are seniors, they wish they still h ad it around. The Bible is a small encyclopedia of the col- lege ; it contains its history, description of campus organizations, songs, cheers, thumb-nail sketches of the Professors, and is a general reference book for students to use during the year of orientation, and during the remainder of their four years in Kingston. The staff is chosen each spring from the Junior class. Members of the staff are usually people who have shown journalistic interests by writing for the Beacon.

The first issue ap- peared in May, 1940, and through the efforts of Miss Reilly, Dr. Knickerbocker, and a few mem- bers of the old staff, the idea of a campus maga- zine was kept alive. The Review attempts to stimulate and encourage creative writing as a challenge to our student body who find little enough chance for self expression. The magazine is a forum and restricts neither contributor nor type of subject of contribution. The Review looks forward to the day when it will be a quar- terly publication. The present staff members are: Editor-in-Chief Helen Leon Assistants, Albert Levine Estelle Thorpe Emerson Mowry Betty Richmond William Bucklin Darthea Bacon Parker Wood Mabel Barcamian Business Manager Robert Brennan Assistants, Gardner Earle Morris Baram Mary Macare Feature Editor Mae Burt Assistants, Harriet Hall GeorceFenley Virginia Siravo Evelyn Wilkins Art Editors.

Smith. Since then it has become recognized as a campus society of worthwhile pur- poses, and its membership has increased to ap- proximately thirty members. Dr. Kenneth L. Knickerbocker and Miss Mary A. Reilly are faculty advisers. Meetings are held weekly in a classroom in Quinn Hall, at which time speakers are presented to the club. During the past years, talks were given on poetry, old literature, drama, purposes of the Scroll, and vari- ous programs were planned by the students themselves. In March, Scroll presented Mr. John Gainfort, a dramatist and critic from Broadway, who spoke on the current theatre. Many members of the Scroll have writing ability, and individual crea- tive work has been encouraged. Scroll members often enter the writing contest sponsored by the English department each spring.

Richard Treasurer Robert Taylor Secretary Virginia M. Walsh Organized twenty years ago this spring. Phi Delta, the only dramatic organization on the campus at the present time, is a student-run, student-financed, and student-supported organi- zation. Through membership and participation in Phi Delta students are given an opportunity to develop initiative ami ability. In addition to the regular acting there is open to members activity in several other lines. These include make-up, decorations, music, designing sets and costumes, dancing, properties, and all other activities that take place behind the scenes. 1941 222 Phi Delta membership this year has reached the total of fifty-eight, thirty-one of whom are members of the Sophomore Class. Annually Phi Delta produces a series of one-act freshman plays and one or more full-length plays. This year the Rliody Revue is again being presented after an absence of one year. Membership in Phi Delta is acquired only through participation in the fresh- man plays or work “behind the scenes.” This year’s full-length production, “She Stoops to Conquer” by Oliver Goldsmith, is a gay 18th century comedy. Dr. Lee C. Wilson of the Eng- lish Department directed the play which ran two nights. Make-up was under the management of Paul Dunham who trained a special group to work under him. The outstanding feature of the club’s activities is the eagerly anticipated Rliody Revue. As the Grist goes to press, this year’s Revue, which is in the form of a musical comedy, is in the stages of of rehearsal. Costumes, dance-routines, make-up lighting, scenery, acting, singing, writing of the script, and music are all handled by students of Rhode Island State College under the capable direction of Phi Delta members.

It is the highest scholastic honor, and probably the most cher- ished honor at Rhode Island State College, that a student may obtain. The membership is limited to ten per cent of the Senior Class, and students are required to have well over a two point average in order to he eligible. A few members are elected in the fall, the remaining in the spring. Phi Kappa Phi sponsors an Honors Assembly program in the fall at which time individual prizes for scholarships are given, and the schol- lastic ratings of houses and dormitories are an- nounced. The members also hold an evening program each year for freshmen whom they be- lieve to be prospective Phi Kappa Phi members.

The organi- zation was founded at the University of Wisconsin in 1904 with the idea that such a society would he vital in developing and fostering the ideals and practices of mil itary education in the United States. H Company, 6th Regiment of Scabbard and Blade was established on the Rhode Island State College Campus in 1927. Scabbard and Blade sponsors the annual Military Ball at which the Junior Cadet Officers are tapped for membership and the selection of the honorary Co-ed Colonel is announced.

Membership is based on honor standing in biology subjects during freshman and sophomore years, as well as good character, and a positive interest in the field of biology. The chapter here at Rhode Island State College has emphasized the value of individual research, and during the past year many of the members have been doing experimental research on botany, physiology, and marine zoology. Professor DeW olf and Dr. Hunter, as advisors of the society, have shown a great deal of interest in its advancement. The Biologist is the national publication which is issued four times a year. Alpha Xi Chapter also has its own publication. The Cell, which appears at the annual banquet. This year’s Cell was efficiently edited by Arthur Kelman and David M. Smith. 1941 226 ALPHA ZETA Alpha Zeta Fraternity is a national honorary agricultural fraternity. It is composed of agricul- tural students of high standing in “scholarship, character, and leadership” and represents a goal which all members of the agricultural curriculum do their utmost to attain. This fraternity was established at Ohio State University on November 4tli, 1897, and on May 29th, 1936, a chapter was installed at Rhode Island State College. Since that time Alpha Zeta has been of very great im- portance in promoting interest, scholarship, and leadership among the students of agriculture on the Rhode Island State College campus. Each year on Honors Day the Rhode Island Chapter of Alpha Zeta offers, in recognition of outstanding achievement, a silver cup to the stu- dent in the freshman class of the agricultural course wdio makes the highest average grades for the year.

Edmund Maher The Rhode Island Club is an athletic honorary society which includes all men who have earned a letter in any recognized sport of the college. The main purpose of the club is to promote friendship and good-will among the athletes in the interests of the college by demanding team work, clean play, and loyalty to the college. The society acts as a governing body over men’s athletics and regulates the awarding of letters. During the past year the club has increased its activities to a very great extent and has proved beyond a doubt that the organization is more than just an honorary society. The work of the group has been very much in evidence. By spon- soring Saturday night dances and by selling re- freshments at all the college’s athletic events the R. I. Club has come to be recognized as one of the more active associations at college. On the ‘ " Ram Special” to Madison Square Garden on January 29th the society had a whole dining car and served refreshments to those Rhode Island fans making the trip.

Executive power is vested in a council composed of sweater- wearers, and officers and representatives elected by all the women students from a group of women who have actively participated in varsity sports. Sweater-wearers receive their awards for two years on a varsity team, for one year on a varsity team and two on a squad; or for four years on a squad; sweaters are also awarded to varsity man- agers in their senior year. W. A. A. is the governing body over women’s athletics: this organization makes the rules in regard to the awarding of sweaters and awards an intra-mural trophy. Each spring the association holds a banquet at which aw ards are made for the year and captains and officers are announced for the following year. This year the Women’s Athletic Association in- cludes eleven sweater-wearers from the senior class and six from the junior class: this is believed to be the largest number of co-ed letter-wearers that Rhode Island has even had at one time.

Meetings are held weekly, at which time there are practice debates and discussions, and cases are reviewed. Under the leadership of Nathan M. Shippee, winner of the 1940 Cup Debate, and advisorship of Prof. George E. Brooks, the society has had one of its most successful seasons. Trips were made to New York, Connecticut, Wesleyan, and nearby colleges, enabling all upperclassmen to partici- pate in an off-campus debate. The most interesting home debate was held with Harvard University. Radio debates were much in evidence, and the Model Congress kept the Wranglers busy for weeks. The season was brought to a close with the men’s Cup Debate. OFFICERS President Nathan M. Shii»pee First Vice-President, Elmer Cornell Second Vice-President, Angelo J.

The group studies and renders selections in the field of sacred and secular choral music. This year the R. I. S. C. Concert Choir, besides taking part in local concerts at the college and in the state, participated at the New England Inter- collegiate Glee Club Festival which was held at the University of New Hampshire, April 18th and 19th. Here ten New England Colleges were represented, and programs were presented by the individual college choirs and by all the college groups acting as a unit. Plans for joint concerts with the University of Connecticut have also been made. OFFICERS MEN Manager Walton Scott, Jit.

Bugielski Director, Professor Lee C. McCauley The Rhode Island State College Little Sym- phony Orchestra, which performs under the direction of Professor Lee C. McCauley, has this year been received with greater enthusiasm than ever by the student body. Although the orchestra does not receive as much publicity as do the other musical groups it is yet of equal importance in the musical picture at Rhode Island State College. The members of the orchestra meet regularly and work faithfully under the direction of Professor McCauley. The group studies and presents works of the classical, romantic, and modern composers. In addition to regular concerts which are pre- sented by the group at the college, this year the idea of having joint concerts with the University of Connecticut brought greater activity to this organization. 1941 234 R. I. S. C. BAND ASSOCIATION The popularly known “Blue and White” Band completed one of its most active years since its beginning under an improved program of organ- ization and performance. The Rhode Island Band became one of the active charter members of the newly-formed New England College Band Asso- ciation, and participated in the first annual New England College Band Festival at Amherst, Mass- chusetts. In addition to playing during the foot- ball season, it widened its scope of activity by playing at many of the basketball games, both at home and away, and by being the first New Eng- land College Band to play in Madison Square Garden, New York. Several concerts were given by the Symphonic Band in the spring, the high- light of which was the annual assembly program. OFFICERS Faculty Adviser , Lt. Col. Frank U. Greer Director of Music .

I. S. C., the Network became a reality in March, 1940. A charter member of the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, the Rhode Island State Col- lege Network, after months of experimenting and actual operation, has become a most efficient col- lege broadcasting system. The control room and studios are located in Edward’s Hall with transmission lines leading to all dormitories and houses. The studios were originally designed as music rooms and are there- fore semi-soundproof. The present operating frequency is about 575 kc, hut with the FCC changing the alloted broadcasting frequencies, a better frequency may be chosen. Through its relationship with the parent organ- ization, the IBS, the Network offers valuable training for those interested in all phases of the radio industry. Personnel cards of all members of the Network are placed on file in the New York offices of the IBS where they are easily accessible to CBS and other large networks. Front Roic : Feibelman.

In 1938 the club’s importance was realized when it handled radio traffic for South County during the great hurricane in the fall of that year. Recently the club was very instrumental in organizing and starting on its way the present Radio Network. The club is also affiliated witli Rlio Epsilon, a national fraternity for amateur radio clubs in colleges and universities.

An intensive program of discussion on religious and ethical topics is conducted as well as a varied social program. The outstanding feature of the club’s activities is the three-day Spiritual Retreat conducted an- nually. The attendance is excellent and the stu- dents appreciate the opportunity offered. A Com- munion Breakfast is held each year in the spring. This year Angelo Mantenuto, Betty Benheimer, Edward Maher, Barbara O’Neill and Margaret Gallogly attended a convention of the New Eng- land Confederation of Newman Clubs at the Uni- versity of New Hampshire. Outside lecturers are brought on campus for the open meetings of the club. Rev. Leo Row- lands, O.S.F. Cap., Chief McNulty, Rev. Delaney, Rev. McConnell, and Dr. John Turco have been guests of the club in the capacity of guest speak- ers. Rev. Paul Lloyd, as chaplain, has been the inspiration for continuous advancement, and Miss Mabel Dickson has been a friend of the Newman Club and a loyal supporter of its activities. 1941 238 STUDENT FELLOWSHIP The Student Fellowship, a young people’s organization in connection with the village church, is open to all college students. Meetings are held each Sunday evening in the church house. The first meeting of the year is usually an informal party for the purpose of meeting the freshmen. This is followed by an outdoor meeting. The weekly meetings are made interesting as well as educational by inviting outside speakers to talk to the students on social, moral, and gen- eral topics. The speakers are college professors, writers, and well known lecturers. Panel discus- sions have also proved most successful. Programs are arranged by a Cabinet made up of representa- tives from houses and dormitories. The Student Fellowship, under the advisersliip of Reverend Harry S. McCready and President Walton H. Scott, Jr. has done much toward get- ting students together informally, and in fostering a friendly relationship between students who rarely have the opportunity to meet one another except at Student Fellowship gatherings.

The Aero Club was organized at Rhode Island State College in 1935 through the efforts of Dr. Alexander and Professor Sikorsky. Since that time the club has increased greatly in size and in importance. Al- though the first members of the Aero Club were practically all engineers, with the increasing in- terest in aeronautics, students from all curricula eventually came to join the society. In addition to to the instruction which the members of the club receive from Dr. Alexander, and the valuable in- formation that may he obtained from Professor Sikorsky and other pioneers in the world of aviation, the air-minded students conduct fre- quent field trips and eventually become familiar with the rudiments of general aeronautical science.

It was founded in Novem- ber, 1940, through the initiative of Dr. Nicholas Alexander. The purpose of the Club is to foster flying and to enable CAA pilots to continue flying after the completion of their course. This organ- ization is unique in that it is probably the only one on campus that is a corporation having a state charter. The club owns a Taylorcraft, “The Fly- ing Rams”, which is kept at the State Airport in Hill sgrove. All members are allowed to use it. Two aims of the club are to have a suitable hangar and field built closer to the campus in the near future, and to increase its membership suf- ficiently so that it may join the National Aero- nautic Association of ashington, D.

Lectures given by professional people show how sociology is related to many different fields, and movies presented to the mem- bers of the club give to them some indication of what has been done and what remains to be done in social welfare work. The group takes occa- sional trips to prisons, institutions, and similar places, and here the members get first-hand infor- mation on the work in which they are interested. 1941 242 AGGIE CLUB In addition to being probably the oldest of the organizations on the campus, the Aggie Club also is one of those having the greatest number of members. The society is represented by all the students enrolled in the School of Agriculture. The chief function of the association is the pro- motion of professional interest on the campus in agriculture. At the regular monthly meetings dis- cussions are conducted concerning recent happen- ings in the field of agriculture. The Aggie Club starts off the social year by one of the annual highlights, the colorful “Aggie Bawl.” This is one of the best attended dances of the year.

Ever since the time of its formation about two years ago, the Camera Club has gained steadily in both popularity and mem- bership. This club offers to those students who are interested in photography a chance to get to- gether so that they might discuss some of the problems which confront the beginners, and to those students who are more experienced in photography the opportunity of exchanging ideas more freely is given. Besides the lectures which the club sponsors in order to keep its members abreast in the photo- graphic world, the club holds an annual photo- graphic contest.

Everyone taking the Home Economics course in the college is eligible for membership in the organization. The Club aims to bring to its mem- bers some features of domestic science which will add to their experience and information and in different ways prepare them for work after col- lege. The organization meets twice a month at which times an outstanding speaker in some line of domestic science is presented. An interesting feature of the Home Economics Club is the An- nual Food Bazaar; ordinarily this is presented around Christmas time but this year the members have changed this custom and are presenting the Bazaar on May Day. A fashion show which is presented in the spring is always of great interest. In it the students display the clothes they have made.

This society, an organization composed of stu- dents majoring in the field of chemistry, offers an extensive program to its members. Regular meetings, interesting lectures, moving pictures, and discussions all help to promote interest in chemical research and problems. It not only fos- ters greater cooperation between instructor and student but also aids the student in making a more definite decision as to his chosen field of special- ization in the larger field of chemistry. The year’s activities are concluded with a chemical exhibit displayed in conjunction with the annual Inter- scholastic Field Day in May. 1941 246 ENGINEERING COUNCIL The Engineering Council of Rhode Island State College was organized in 1938. This group is made up of two members from each of the four engi- neering societies. Its chief function is to create a closer relationship between the societies and thus to coordinate the affairs and activities of the four societies with the end in view of stimulating im- provement of engineering as a whole. The council sponsors a smoker and banquet each year where speakers are presented. Last year the council was instrumental in publishing the first engineering magazine at the college, The Integral. The Engineering Council sponsors the Slide Rule Strut which was presented for the first time in 1939. This semi-formal dance uses technical surroundings and apparatus as a background and has been received with such enthusiasm by the student body that it has developed into a popular annual affair.

E. Molstead of Yale University, Secretary of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, in- stalled the Rhode Island chapter as a member of the national student organization. Rhode Island followed Yale, M. I. T., and Northeastern in its affiliation with the Institute. Although it is still fairly young, the Chemical Engineering Society has lost little time in stimulating professional in- terest among its members in the wide field of chemical engineering. This has been accom- plished through periodic conferences and field trips to many industrial plants. Front Row: Raymond, Carter, Mr. Beatty, Horowitz, Dr. Crawford, Nurmi, Miga Second Row: Shusman.

Since that time it has developed into the largest of the engineering societies. This group fosters interest in the hroad field of mechanical engineer- ing through the media of lectures by engineers, movies, and discussions on topics which are of importance to those students who wish to become future mechanical engineers. Through its affilia- tion with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers in 1928 the smaller group was given the opportunity to see and hear professional men in the field of mechanical engineering. Of very great importance to the members of the society are the Society’s Employment Service and Engineering Council for Professional Betterment which will be sources of great benefit to the members after they have left college.

AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS OFFICERS President James F. Hasney Vice-President, John E. Stasukevich Secretary-T reasurer , Edward L. Stene Faculty Adviser, Professor Wesley B. Hall The Electrical Engineering Society, which was founded way back in 1898. has the distinction of being the oldest of all the Engineering Societies at Rhode Island State College. In 1923 the local society joined the national organization, the American Institute of Electrical Engineers. The main service performed by the society is the pro- motion of student interest by encouraging full participation at the regular meetings of the society, hv arranging field trips that will he bene- ficial to the members, and by the entertainment of guest speakers, usually men who are experi- enced and prominent in the field of electrical en- gineering. The society has been instrumental in fostering friendship among the different students and classes in electrical engineering and has pro- vided contacts with men in this field on the outside. 1941 250 AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS In 1932 the Civil Engineering Society of Rhode Island State College became affiliated with the American Society of Civil Engineers. Since that time the local group has progressed rapidly in interest and activity. Through the excellent pro- gram afforded the society by means of its meet- ings. those students who have the desire to develop into the designers of bridges, parkways, buildings and dams of tomorrow, have the op- portunity to become better acquainted with pro- fessional engineers, their work, and practices. Those who attend the periodic meetings of the society hear lectures by men with first-hand in- formation in the field of engineering. Movies, dis- cussions, conferences and field trips all do their part in helping the Civil Engineers at Rhode Island State College to increase their knowledge and experience in that field in which they are interested.

Through the efforts of Phil Monte, chairman of music, the Aggie Club was honored with the reap- pearance of the Fenton Brothers’ sixteen piece orchestra. This musical organiza- tion again proved to be as popular with the 300 couples in attendance as it had been at the Aggie Bawl of 1939. The dance, already well known for its exten- sive ami pertinent decoration, was ac- centuated by a specially erected booth for the patrons. This construction was outlined with horse collars and other pieces of harness, plus various imple- ments such as plows, planters, and cul- tivators, which were all secured from nearby farms. One portion of the booth was set aside to house the first four- wheeled gig w hich the interior of Lippitt Hall has ever seen, and probably ever will see. During the “dance set” that pre- ceded intermission, this gig, powered by four powerful football men, carried the Queen and her attendants in a review 1941 254 which ended before a throne. The throne, composed of two wagon wheels as sides and covered by a thatched roof, was the scene of further festivity. With the crowd attentively watching. Miss Bar- bara Whaley was crowned by Howard Bardsley, energetic president of the Aggie Club, with a wreath of flowers, and presented with a cup symbolic of her honor. Miss Whaley comes from nearby Wakefield and succeeds Miss Muriel Dickinson last year’s lovely Harvest Queen. The general setting was of an agricul- tural nature. As you entered the hall, there w T as overhead a solid mass of boughs which, played on by several colored spot- lights, gave the autumn colors that har- monized with the thoughts of harvest time. These boughs were cut and trans- ported from nearby stands of wood by the hard labor of the committee. Sur- rounding the bandstand were pine boughs interwoven with squash, pump- kins, apples and other harvest products which gave the necessary autumn color- ing. At the eastern end of the hall, stables were built to house several favored goats and calves. From these enclosures came the occasional moo of the calf of which we have spoken. Flanking these were several pens of R. I. Red chickens which gave w ' ay to eight eggs during the evening despite the unusual excitement for them. From a nearby South Comity farm, the Aggie Club w as able to acquire a large, snarling raccoon. This raccoon was kept in the hall during the entire dance and remained in good humor, also, not break- ing the chains which kept him in good custody. These animals were all made available through the courtesy of those who have, for several years, shown a genuine interest in the welfare of the Aggie Club here at Rhode Island. To these people, and the forty-two agricultural students who wholeheart- edly combined their efforts under the general chairmanship of Norman Chase, goes the credit of staging a most success- ful dance — the first major dance of 1940, the Aggie Bawl. GRIST 255 SOPH HOP Jean Yare The Soph Hop, traditional formal dance of the class of 1943, entered the scene of campus socials in a gala manner on December 12, 1940. Rodman Hall, transformed by colorful spotlights play- ing on an unusual winter scene, was oc- cupied by some one hundred and ninety couples. All those who attended w ere very much pleased with the selection of the hand. Claude Thornhill, who previously had played at the Roseland Ballroom in Boston and entertained at the Boston University Military Ball, was the man who led his fifteen piece orchestra in the pleasing chords of music. The features of the evening’s music were Claude Thorn- hill at the piano and xylophone, and his charming singer, Jane Essex, plus the unforgetable Boy Jenney, the had humor man. Upon a throne resembling a snow chair and with spotlights focused. Miss Jean Yare representative of Delta Zeta, was officially crowned by Claude Thornhill as the Sweetheart of ’42. 1941 256 SLIDE RULE STRUT The most successful Slide Rule Strut ever to be held was presented by the engineers on March 27, 1941 at the Lip- pitt Gym. Amidst the surroundings of working models of engineering accomplishments, a gay crowd enjoyed the pleasing rhythms of Eddie Quinton’s orchestra. The feature of this year’s Strut was the selection of a Queen Engineerette. To Miss Peggy Armbrust went the honor of being chosen the first Queen. In addi- tion to her regal crown the new queen received a key to Bliss Hall, the home of the engineers.

Scahhard and Blade, National Honorary Military Society on the campus, con- ducted this successful dance in Rodman Hall on its traditional date, the eve of Washington ' s Birthday, February 21, with probably more appropriate sur- roundings and sentiment than any formal has ever had on this campus. The interior was skillfully arranged and completely transformed as if by a magic wand. Divisional and regimental insignia, standards and color predom- inated. These, coupled with the numer- ous uniforms of the cadet officers and stu- dents, the colorful dress uniforms of the guests and the returning alumni, who are once again in the Nation’s service, lend- ing a most distinctive military tinge. The program opened with a Grand March led by his Excellency J. Howard McGrath and the retiring honorary Co-ed Colonel, lovely Blanche Richards. Many couples joined in this march neces- Ri th Oldrid 258 sitating strategic maneuvers by the Governor to keep it from entangling. This he managed so skillfully and ably that it is still the subject of discussion here and away from Kingston. Following a period of general dancing to the sweet strains of Red Norvo’s Orchestra, the evening’s most awaited moment came. The impressive ceremony of the Senior Cadet Officers, the sabre arch by the Juniors served as a prelude to the unveiling of a new honorary Co-ed Colonel. Singled out of the darkness by a sole spotlight as she stepped forth from behind closed curtains, pretty Ruth Oldrid was acclaimed with much awe and joy by all present. Our new Colonel was chosen by all students enrolled in the military course by ballot during the week preceding. The utmost secrecy always surrounds this vote. She was chosen from a field of five worthy candidates all of whom were nominated by Scabbard and Blade members. The new Co-ed Colonel was presented to the public by her pred- ecessor and her title bestowed upon her by Governor McGrath. Junior Cadet Officers were then tapped and presented for membership in the Honorary Military Society. Governor McGrath was presented with a service bar and inducted as an honorary member of Scabbard and Blade by Cadet Captain Sherman Bailey. The most climatic and thrilling mo- ment of the evening came with the dim- ming of lights, the flick of sabres, the unfurling of the flag, and the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. No event or situation could convey in so short a time all the feeling and meaning that this moment held for the cadet officers and the general gathering. Many couples passed through the long receiving line of Military, State and Col- lege dignitaries. Governor and Mrs. J. Howard McGrath headed this group among whom were Congressman Aime J. Forand, Brigadier General and Mrs. Herbert R. Dean, Brigadier General and Mrs. Earl Webster, Colonel and Mrs. Frank U. Greer, members of the Board of Trustees and other college representatives. All in all the Scabbard and Blade presented a fine dance and one which will leave an important imprint in the tradition of Rhode Island State College. Chairman Jack Hyland and his commit- tee are indeed deserving of every praise given them. JUNIOR PROM ‘‘The Prom’s the thing.” Truer words have never been spoken as far as this annual dance is concerned. For days and weeks and months, the student body, and we understand the faculty too, of Rhode Island State College look forward with joy to this gala event. For many years now our Junior Prom has been on a par with the quality of any similar dance of any New England College. In the past years, Ozzie Nelson, Ray Noble, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey have all performed. Last year. Chairman Herbert Woodbury, through his extended efforts brought Larry Clinton. Ford Leary, and the ever popular Bea Wain to the Biltmore Ball- room. This dance, best remembered by recent classes, proved to be very popular as many current remarks will guarantee. We believe that we too, the class of 1941, have staged a Prom that will not only be one well remembered, but one set as a goal for following classes to shoot at. In fact, we might say that this year’s dance was the unusual or unique in more than one way. It all goes hack to the days when the chairman was worrying about a satis- factory date that would be suitable to all. After much debate, one date was picked, but the ballroom was not available. Then 1941 260 came a huddle with the Class Advisor Doc Pease and the committee. From this meeting came the decision to ask the Ad- ministrative Council to cancel classes on May first, which they did. Thus, the Junior class was able to have this favored dance on April 30, 1940 at the Biltmore Ballroom. Finally, on the evening of April 30, the elite of the campus met in formal attire in the atmosphere of beauty and dignity that only the Junior Prom affords. The class was not to he outdone by previous years in the matter of hands, for they secured Glen Gray and his famous Casa Loma Orchestra. Thus, with his famous theme song, “Smoke Rings”, Gray, co- featured with Kenney Sargent and Pee Wee Hunt, took over the bandstand to open the evening’s pleasure. Before the evening was over everyone was speaking of our handsome six foot, four inch maestro, Glen Gray. Virginia Gilman Glen Gray and Queen We have said the Prom was unusual. Here it is again, for a 30-minute coast-to- coast hookup broadcast over the Colum- bia Networks brought the Prom and its sweet music to the parents and friends of those present. Previous to the broadcast, the official r eceiving line of patrons which included Governor and Mrs. Van- derbilt, Dr. and Mrs. Raymond G. Bress- ler. Dr. and Mrs. John Barlow, Colonel and Mrs. Frank Greer, and Colonel and Mrs. Skinner, met the many guests. To usher the couples through the reception line were Walt Lysak, Elmer Ladouceur, and Eugene Greene. In a deserving ceremony, the candi- dates for Prom Queen were escorted to the handstand and with the assistance of Glen Gray, Pee Wee Hunt, and Kenney Sargent, Miss Virginia Gilman was selected for the honor, and duly named the Queen of the 1940 Junior Prom.

Most Brilliant Leon Goff : Most Dependable Elmer Ladouceur CLASS VOTE The class vote was not complete but we believe that there was enough of a majority of voters to give a fair idea of the trend. In the vote for the most beautiful, Blanche Richard was the winner, with Peggy Ambrust a close second. Blanche and Peggy were on every ballot with the votes very close. Peggy was voted the Best Dressed and Biggest Society Lady. Anna Moskalyk had little competition in the final count for the Best Natured and Most Collegiate Co-ed. alton Scott and Bud Conley were in a close vote for Most Handsome Ed with Bud the winner. Warner Keaney was unanimous choice for Best All Around Athlete and Best Natured. There was a very ' close vote be- tween Maurice Belisle and Bud Conley over the title of Best All Around Ed with Bud the winner. Maurice received a majority over Elmer Ladouceur in the vote for the title of Most Thorough Gentleman. The wittiest Seniors of the year had no trouble being identified for the votes were unanimously ' in favor of Anna Moskalyk and Roland Gagnon. Jane Sanborn was voted the Best All Around Women Athlete and Margaret Thackeray the Best All Around Co-ed. Basketball was the favorite sport of the class with a great deal of interest in football as brought out by ' the voting. There was a tie vote on prospects for a job which is a good sign, as in former years the answer has been “No”. The graduation age varied from 20 to 29 with 22 the average age upon graduation. We have one in the hooks for Ripley for there are some here that say the average cost of a date is 10c while others spend $5.00. The average for the class, however, is $2.00. The New York trip was apparently a great success for the Seniors proved in the vote that the trip should be a yearly one. Gone With the Wind was our best movie with Philadelphia Story the next choice. In the magazine questionnaire we found that the most read was Life, followed by Readers Digest and Esquire. What happened to Vogue ? GRIST 265 266 GRIST 267 CLASS PROPHECY The marvels of this age! I never realized so many people could be assembled in one place. Noise! tbe drone of a formation of army bombers would sound like the hum of bumble bees compared to this din. I’m literally being pushed and jostled about by the terrific onslaught of spectators who have mobbed Madison Square Garden tonight. Each seems intent on procuring the few available seats remaining. You can hardly blame them. The outstanding athletic event of the year has materialized, limes Square News Tower has been screeching these headlines for the past few weeks: “Tickets now on sale for Indiana-Rhode Island St ale Basketball Game — Madison Square Garden — Saturday, March 22, 1961.” More significant than any of tbe last year’s national tournament games, this fracas promises a thrill for every action packed minute of the fray. Coach Warner Keaney, following much the same style his illustrious father made famous in ’41, is confident that the Rams will take Indiana by a good margin. Bud Conley’s son, Fred Jr., is R. I. star forward and tbe mainstay of the quintet this year. There seems to be some excitement at the northeast entrance of the Garden. The Governor of Rhode Island, His Excellency James Butler and his staff are arriving. Some of them seem familiar — there’s Ralph Millspaugli, Rene Duranleau, and the new Secretary of State, Elmer Ladouceur. New York s Commissioner of Roads, Herb Wisbey is on hand to welcome the delegation and present the keys of the city to Rhode Island’s third woman mayor, little Patsy Murphy, whose father, one time Mayor of Kingston, now owns and operates “Murphy’s Mysoginist Mansion”, a better class boarding house for bachelors. It would seem that the ’41 alumni are well represented. Upstairs in the press box, I found Dave Smith, Art Kelman, and A1 Pcckham, ace reporters of Callahan’s News Syndicate busily engaged making last minute preparations to wire their stories in. Columbia’s ace sports commentators Vin Morrissette and Jolin Stasukevich were testing microphones and Nick Orlando, manager of the Garden, was doing some heavy speculating with his assistant man- ager Larry Gates. New York has really been Rhody conscious these last few years. With an annual schedule that now includes Seton Hall, Long Island University, City College of New York, Westminster, and last year Wisconsin, the Rams have steadily risen in popularity and favor with the fans. The President of the College, Nathan Shippee, and Dean of Women, Helen Leon, agreed to suspend classes for a week if the team manages to overcome Indiana in this final tournament game. Everyone of the 18,000 Garden seats has been sold out in advance. In the reserved section, I find several members of the Puerto Rican Board of Education — Helen Beaven, Leon Goff, Burton Froberg, and Florence Skoog- who had been flown over from the island by that famous team of TVA Transport Pilots, Anna Moskalyk and Boh Irons. I was pleased to learn that Alice Jewell and Elaine Walcott were stewardesses on the same plane. I stopped long enough at the lunch counter to hear that the new drink “Pansar-Cola” discovered by A1 Pansar is gradually outselling all other popular brands. As a matter of fact, tbe new elite restaurant of Fifth Ave. operated by tbe Misses Bailey and Briggs lias been urging customers to sample tins new ' taste thrill. In tbe lobby, John Creech, prosperous from his discovery of oil on Block Island, was speaking most enthusiastically of the newly constructed series of bridges joining the islands of Narraganselt Bay the masterpiece of engineer Milt Waltcher. However, Milt modestly admits that he couldn’ 1 have done it without the assistance of Walt Novack, Anthony Caputi and Bob Afflick. Third assistant Garden Manager, John Gillespie, told me earlier this evening that a special dele- gation of Rhode Island Girl Scouts were to be guests of the New York Athletic Association of which Elmer Cornell is acting President. Scout Master Margaret Thackeray and her counsellors. Bettv Williams, Barbara Webster and Peggy Kent accompanied the group. According to Walt Scott, publicity director at the college, the co-editors of “Live” Magazine, Sher- man Bailey and Gordon Pennoyer, have planned an extensive publicity campaign for the famous Ram team. So dynamic has been Rhody’s rise to fame that it is rumored on good authority that Herb Repass, who has done well for himself in Hollywood, is attempting to pursuade head of MGM, Harold Werner to make a series of Ram shorts for National Athletic Week. 1941 268 Several prominent alumni are to he featured in this National Athletic Week program. Louis “Duke” Abhruzzi, one time star quarter back of the State team, will lecture to undergraduates of Rockwell Prep School on the “aesthetic value of athletics”. In the tennis world the indomitable Wimbledon cup team of a few r years ago. Windy Hey and Bob Larrabee are planning several demonstra- tion matches in the Garden. The winners of the National Open Golf Tournament of 1945, Larry Harrigan and Bob Conrad, will demonstrate the new club grip responsible for their phenomenal success. Rumor has it that with proper financial stipulations arrangements may be completed to present the popular roller skate dancing team Hazel Joyce and Herb Gosling. The team created quite a sensation last year in their invitation performance before the “Crown Head of Europe”. Currently co-featured with the masculine part of the N.A.W. Program, Woman’s Athletic Club Director Nancy Williams promises events of outstanding interest to the feminine world. Innovations in the women’s field of athletics were startlingly heralded in 1946 with Ruth Thornton’s breathtaking 100 foot swan dive and Muriel Selby and Barbara McBride’s pine ski jumps. Jane Sanborn, All- American Sports Week Queen, will wear a gown made of a new secret plastic material, the discovery of chemist Pat Kayes, and designed by Peg Armbrust, of “La Maison de Charme” swank Park Avenue style salon. Most of the sports fans at the game tonight have been speaking enthusiastically of the Photography exhibit which wealthy philanthropist Carroll Billmyer has been sponsoring this week. The winning portrait was an action shot of Metropolitan Opera Maestro Roland Gagnon expressing a very pro- nounce “Pianissimo” during an interlude of Monte’s Fifth Symphony in 6 flats. The work of ace photographer George Buivid, this composition was decorated with a blue ribbon for excellence by judges Helen Abrams, Marcella Czubak, Stephen Zweir and A1 Tavarozzi of the National Association of Retail Artists of America. Creating quite a sensation in the field of expressionalistic art, the com- position “Sea Gull Gathering Grapes” by Surrealist artist Frank Zammarchi initiated a new style in technique. The sculpture of Virginia Holley and Margaret Boyle was very enthusiastically received by art lovers everywhere. Several prominent people in the field of arts and letters are in the Garden tonight. Norman Chace, Pulitzer Prize winner for his autobiography Wedded Bliss is conversing with Phyllis Arnold, famous for her weekly articles in Science Digest. Barbara Penney and Vincy Ruggieri collaborators of the new text hook on Nutrition and Vitamin Research are discussing lunch counter problems with Shel Salisbury owner and manager of the nationally famous line of Salisbury fountains. The loud speaker in the Garden has just announced that Maurie Belisle is the winner of the Mantenuto Sweepstakes this year, Manty and his staff of able assistants, George August, Howard Bardsley, Lester Bills, and Henry Capotosto initiated a pool in 1941 which has increased to such pro- portions that its popularity and financial receipts now eclipse the Irish Sweepstakes. There is much excitement in Kingston over the announcement that “Premiere Ballerina” Norma Joyce of the Russian Ballet has offered her extensive dancing experience to take charge of the chorus in the 1961 Rhody Revue. Head of BMI, A1 Gadrow promises that he will hack the songs written by that inimitable song writing team the. Babbitt twins. Rated in collegiate circles as one of the out- standing musical comedies of the year. The Revue, financially bac ked this year by alumna Virginia Gilman, will be presented in Hyland’s State Theatre in Kingston. Palumbo’s Advertising Agency, with headquarters in Waltham, has been contracted to arrange for a nation-wide billboard publicity program. While walking down Forty-Second Street this afternoon, I met and chatted with Theresa Ferrazzoli, the college nurse. She was very elated about the physical condition of the undergraduates at Rhody this year. It appears that the ruling of the State Health Commissioner, Eleanor Suitor, that one of Hobson’s Health Capsules be consumed by each student per day has had fine results. Just managed to say hello to three of Saks’ superior buying staff, Lee Clarke, Ann Chaharyn, and Pat Damon. They are anticipating a busy spring as a result of the tremendous turn to Town and Country sport clothes as advertised in Petersen’s “Gentlemen’s Guide” this month. At least there seems to be ample money in circulation according to statistics in Machon’s Stock Market Report issued yesterday. Here comes the Rhody team now for a few minutes of practice shooting before the game. Coach Flip Keaney, Doc Heffeman, and trainer DeCesare have taken their positions on the bench and are nervously awaiting the whistle. Of course, I have no way of predicting who will finish with the top edge on the score but I might suggest that you read your Journal tomorrow ' — March 23, 1961.
