Kopech. 9 LT HOUGH this year commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the found- ing of Rhode Island State College, the history of the organization of the institution dates back almost eighty years. On that day in 1863 when the General Assembly of this State passed resolutions authorizing its Governor to accept and receive the land script which was its due according to the Agricultural Land Grant Act signed by President Lincoln in 1862, the real foun- dation was laid, upon which the college was developed. Thirty years of experiment, organization, and planning for the future development of the school intervened before the Agricultural College attained the growth and necessary requirements to eam the name of the Rhode Island State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. During the first tedious years, the land script of 120,000 acres was tranferred to Brown University, which was forced to sell the land on account of lack of funds to meet the taxes on the property which, by the way, was located in Kansas. A fund of $50,000 was derived from the sale, and in 1888, a bill was passed establishing from this original land grant fund income, a State Agricultural School on an independent basis. Development of the Agricultural School was slow but steady. Five different land sites were inspected before it was finally voted to buy the “Oliver Watson” farm in Kingston. In 1888, the first Board of Managers, headed Pres. John H. Washburn 1892-1902 18 9 2 19 0 2 Watson House 1892 10 Taft Laboratory 1895 Watson House 1942 by Mr. Charles O. Flagg, held its first meet- ing in an old corn crib which was located near Watson House. The first building construction did not take place, however, until 1890, when Taft Laboratory was com- pleted. The first public acknowledgment that a college was in the making was made by fifty people who attended the laying of the cornerstone for this building. The same year money was appropriated to provide proper housing for the school, and College Hall and South Hall were erected. All was finally in readiness for the first class to enter the institution in September 1890. Thirty- three stalwart students gained admission by meeting the requirements which “embraced the ordinary English branches, arithmetic through square and cube root, geography, reading, spelling, and elementary knowledge of United States history”. The members of the first class paid three dollars a week for their board, and room rent was five dollars per annum respectively. With the year 1892, we arrive at a mile- stone in the history of the institution. It was at dawn one day that year when, with the help of several undergraduates, “Old Ben Butler” roared his last mighty roar to boom forth the news that Rhode Island had pro- gressed from a school to a college with a schedule for two four-year courses, one in agriculture and one in mechanics. There were eleven departments of instruction, and 136 courses of instruction offered within two years after the founding of the college. 11 OUTHFUL Rhode Island State College grew enormously in its first decade under the new status. At the end of two years the faculty was doubled. In 1894, the first drill was held for cadets. Soon, in response to the need for winter drilling quarters, additional classrooms, and a library, an appropriation was deemed necessary. The next year was a critical and progressive one, historically, for although College Hall, the only men’s dormitory at the time, was destroyed by fire, the first provision for boarding women students was arranged by the remodelling of Watson House. Many other noteworthy incidents occurred in these ten years during which the college was served wisely and well by its first presi- dent, Mr. John H. Washburn. In 1897, Volume I of the Grist was published, and Lippitt Hall was built. It was in this year that the organization of the poultry course took place, the first of its kind in American agricultural colleges. In 1898, a preparatory school was established under the direction of Marshall H. Tyler, for young people who were unable to attend college because they did not have access to a high school course or other proper means of preparation. In 1902, Dr. Washburn resigned his office as President of the college. In several months he was replaced by Mr. Kenyon L. Butterfield, who directed the affairs of Rhode Island for over three years. In 1904, the first Student Council was organized and member- ship in Phi Beta Kappa was restricted to “those who have not received less than four A’s in any one term record.” In 1906, at the Pres. Kenyon L. Butterfield 1902-1906 I 11 0 2 19 12 Davis Hall Afire 1895 12 fisir W Taft Laboratory 1942 Davis Hall 1942 same time that Dr. Howard Edwards took over the presidency, the preparatory school was abolished because after eight years of its existence, it seemed to be crowding out the regular college work. The ascension of Dr. Edwards to the president’s chair marked the beginning of another era of progress at Rhode Island College. In 1907, four degrees were obtain- able for the first time, in agriculture, engi- neering, home economics, and applied science. In this year, the first Beacon was published, the first “Soph Hop” was held, and the “Hobo Club — to promote grace in walking and prevent Sunday studying” was organized. Great organization took place among the students in this period. In 1905, the Young Men’s and Women’s Christian Associations were prominent undergraduate organizations. In 1908, the first fraternity, Rho Iota Kappa, was organized, and in 1909 the first girl’s basketball team was started. 1910 saw the establishment of the Honor System and the introduction of Freshman Rules. Rhode Island’s athletic relations with Brown also date from this year. In 1908, the system of the division of the school year into two semesters instead of three terms, was first arranged. The social calendar at this time included such functions as the Military Ball, musicales, informal hops, and an annual informal reception given to the Freshman by the Junior class. It was decided that new buildings were needed due to the over- crowded conditions that had begun to appear in classrooms and dormitories, for the attendance had increased to 170. 13 T was also decided that because the full name, Rhode Island College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts was too lengthy for such a progressive organization, it should be shortened to Rhode Island State College. In 1910, owing to the increased interest in sports and the growing importance of football and athletic teams at the college, work for the needed funds for an athletic field and clubhouse was started by the students. During the decade from 1912 to 1922, two new buildings appeared on the campus, Science Hall in 1913 and Agricultural Hall in 1921. The main event of the Freshman calendar in these years was the Freshman- Sophmore rope pull. In 1912, Junior Week was instituted at Rhode Island State College, with the Junior Prom as its feature attraction. It was the custom for the Juniors to give a commencement ball to the Seniors. During these years a great many of the extra curricu- lar activities gained in importance on the campus. The first annual varsity debate was held in 1916, Pan-Hellenic Society made its beginning in 1919, the Chemistry Society was formed in 1920, and Phi Delta’s first play was produced in 1921. 1921 was an especially memorable year for the Rhody sports enthusi- asts, for Rhode Island was the victor by 1 point in the clash of its basketball team with that of Harvard; although the Brown Uni- versity football squad took the upper hand in their conflict, with R. I. by 1 touchdown. At the close of the decade, five national fraternities and two national sororities had placed chapters on the Rhode Island campus, Pres. Howard Edwards 1906-1930 19 12 19 2 2 East Hall 14 and there were sixteen clubs of a widely varied nature in existence. Favorite college expressions in the “twenties” included “bum- ming”, and coeds were defined as the “femi- nine species of student usually distinguished by a dumb expression and a corn fed appear- ance.” The Rhode Island campus was coming of age. From 1922 until 1932, the campus pros- pered in every way. The Business Adminis- tration course was added to the curriculum in 1923. Edwards Hall, Memorial Gateway, Bliss Hall, and Rodman Hall were erected before the “thirties”. Rhode Island under- graduates began to gain prominence in the New England sports world. In 1926, a scrappy coed basketball sextet and hockey team entered their tenth undefeated season of matches with Connecticut College. The men’s Rifle Team lost only three of its thirty-three matches, and Rhode Island’s debating squad won its first triangular debate with New Hampshire. In 1927, the H Company of the 6th Regi- ment of Scabbard and Blade was organized at Rhode Island. In 1928, the interfraternity council was reorganized to be all-inclusive, and the Women’s Glee Club first appeared in conjunction with the Men’s Glee Club. But two years later the campus was sobered by misfortune when, in the spring of 1930 the college mourned greatly the death of its president, Dr. Edwards, who had faithfully seen the college through many prosperous years. In December of the same year, Dr. Raymond G. Bressler was appointed to the presidency. 15 3 N 1932, East Hall was converted into a cafeteria for men and women, the infirmary was established, new roads were laid and the president’s house was built. At the close of 1932, the campus numbered twelve fraternities and three sororities, and its extra-curricular activity had expanded to include some twenty-six clubs and organiz- ations. Socially, the campus was progressing, and with the introduction of “talkies down the line” on Saturday nights, the usual Satur- day night silent movies with the dances which followed, were failures. As a result, in 1932, the dances were turned over to organizations, and for the first time a fixed fee was charged by the sponsors. The last ten years, have been stormy years and progressive years, Rhody sons have seen hurricanes blow, revolutions in teaching methods take place, and they have seen the college come close to its goal of becoming a university and another exchange of presidents take affect. In the last decade, the student body has gained its prominence in college student government. From the establishment of the Sachems in 1932, the students have progressed to a form of Student Senate, es- tablished in 1941, which is more democratic and progressive. The Glee Club, which first presented the Messiah in 1933, has in less than ten years gained reknown in New England’s musical realm. Beginning in 1934 a custom of electing a mayor of Kingston has prevailed and is now becoming a campus tradition. Pres. Raymond G. Bressler 1931-1940 19 2 2 1 9 3 2 Ranger Hall 16 Early Chemical Laboratory These ten years have seen great physical progress in the building up of Rhode Island State College. In May 1934, an appropri- ation was made which provided for a new women’s dormitory, a new library and ad- ministration building, an improved dairy barn and the remodeling of Lippitt and Edwards Halls. In 1935, a new Home Economics Building was completed. Three years later, dedication ceremonies, attended by Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Mr. Robert Quinn, who was Governor of Rhode Island at that Bliss Hall time, gave these buildings their official titles. The next step in the building program it is hoped, will be an enlarged gymnasium to fulfill the needs of the expanding Rhode Island sports activities. Rhode Island State College athletics have gained prominence in the last decade. In 1938, four Rhode Island men made the all- conference basketball team and now Rhody boasts the national scoring champion in basketball. The Keaney teams are still thrill- ing the basketball world with their two- point-a-minute scoring ability, and they have traveled to Madison Square Garden for two years to bring fame and honor to the college sports record. The Rhode Island track team has also built up its strength and power. In the last four years the campus has seen records smashed right and left, with the final victory of a national championship for the track stars of Rhode Island. The graduating class of 1942 was ushered into Rhode Island by a hurricane in 1938. 17 3 N four years on the campus, the class has seen the institution of the college carnivals which appeared in the fall of 1939 and 1941, for the benefit of the Scholar- ship Fund. In the Spring of 1942, they participated in celebrating the fiftieth anni- versary of the birth of their college. This year the college is undergoing another great change in its curriculum. Wartime measures are making it necessary to reorgan- ize the college system on a quarterly basis. At present it is only necessary to let facts speak for themselves in relating the progress of the college. In 50 years the college enroll- ment has expanded from 33 to 1200, while the faculty is over ten times its original size. It is hard to estimate what advances the next half century will bring. Probably none! The physical growth of the college is of historic significance and an effective indica- tion of the maturity of the college. Rhode Island State College is growing old grace- fully, showing its age in the comparison of its meager beginnings with the facilities which it has to offer now, at the close of a half century. Rhody has progressed from a small settlement of three buildings and a vast amount of rock-strewn, overgrown New Eng- land swamp land until the school now numbers nine halls of learning, three dormi- tories, Home Management house, Watson house, sixteen privately owned fraternity and sorority houses, a field house, football field, tennis courts, the experiment stations, and the President’s residence. From fifty people watching eagerly the laying of a cornerstone. Pres. Carl R. Woodward 1941 19 3 2 19 4 2 Lippitt Hall Quinn Hall Green Hall the college has progressed to a position of importance to merit dedication ceremonies of one of its buildings conducted by the First Lady of the United States. It’s semi-centen- nial anniversary will be celebrated by twenty times those fifty earnest souls who witnessed the lowly birth of Taft laboratory. Rhode Island State College has gained fame through the achievements of its gradu- ates and undergraduates. Its Glee Clubs have gained an enviable reputation in New England. “State” basketball and track teams have spread its name nationally. In addition to the Rhody graduates who have won ac- claim for their college in diverified fields, professors and instructors, while studying on the campus, have advanced revolutionary theories in science and research. Rhode Island farmers and those from other states as well, have come to depend on the Depart- ment of Agriculture for their farming infor- mation and the latest developments in agriculture. The Home Economics depart- ment has introduced many a new wrinkle in the realm of nutrition and home management. The brilliance of the Rhode Island engineers is recognized each year as a result of their labors. The college is rapidly assuming its responsibilities of service to the nation as well as to the state. It is hard to estimate what advances the next half century may bring. Perhaps when Rhode Island reaches the ripe old age of three score and twenty it will boast university rating in the higher ranks of educational institutions. 19 RIIAIII) OF TRUSTEES A.

Those first few weeks were a whirl of learning our class song, getting acquainted with the 400 odd others like us — the largest frosh class ever to enter Rhode Island State up to that time; taking English tests, aptitude exams, physical exams; getting talked to and at; trying to learn in a cataclysmic rush the campus gossip and vernacular; and attempting to become State-wise in a few activity packed weeks. We came from practically every Rhode Island secondary school, with talents sufficient to stage a seven ring Rhody Revenue boasting a drum majorette, pianists, violin- ists, and stage dancers. In our midst were seven sons and daughters of retired or active Army and Navy officers, eight fac- ulty “children”, two sets of twins (one distinguishable, the other not at all), eleven family combinations, and one stu- dent from Christobal, Canal Zone. All this before the literal whirlwind, in the shape of a mere hurricane, on Septem- ber 21. Trees falling, lights failing, wind howling - - something none of us will for- get for a long time. After a nightmare of dangling electric wires, blocked roads, and lashing wind, scenes of terrific deso- lation and destruction confronted us. Dr. Bressler announced that classes were sus- pended until electric and water repairs 37 Myrtle Beatrice Abedon Home Economics, General N A 558 Hope Street, Providence Arnold Sigfrid Anderson Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautics i A K RKD No. 2, Forest Ave., Middletown Doris Elinor Argentieri Home Economics, Institutional Management E R H 81 Broad Street, Providence were completed. All pitched in to do the very necessary relief work — including the “lowly frosh”. The college cafeteria em- ployees, working under the seemingly un- surmountable difficulty of not having any electric power, performed the Herculean feat of serving 3000-4000 hot meals daily to all those engaged in repair work. One week later we came back to classes — to a rather somber campus minus a few trees. On October 1, we were able to see a national personage pay her first visit to our college. Mrs. Franklin Delano Roose- 71 Ardway Avenue, Conimicut 38 vclt Hall — hitherto known as the “Brick Dorm”. Amid craning necks, curious stares, and clicking cameras, the gracious First Lady lighted a dedicatory fire in the fireplace of the Great Room — spacious room of the dormitory ' now bearing her name. Three other buildings were also christened that day, in the presence of Governor Quinn. The Home Economics building was named Quinn Hall, in honor of the Governor; the gymnasium was called Rodman Hall, in honor of Thomas C.

This month was also the occasion of the nineteenth year of Frank Keaney’s athletic directorship — who, incidentally, was one of the greatest athletes ever turned out by Bates College.

The building expansion pro- gram, for a successful handling of oversized enrollments, was an $800,000 project which was to have included a new Chemistry and Physics building; a recreation center feat- uring swimming pool, an indoor track, basketball and badminton courts and class- rooms, and a plan to enlarge the bleachers and walls at the athletic field.

We contributed chorus “gals ”, gagsters, make-up men — even janitors. 43 Elm Street, Newport 46 “Frosh Beacon” published the night before the Freshman banquet, under the editor- ship of Albert Kopech (know which one?) and Mae Burt. Reading through that paper we find that the afore-mentioned Stanley Modlezewski worked his way up from the reserves to smash Chet Jaworski’s record of 209 points by garnering 288 markers in 12 games, or an average of 24 points per game in his first year of college basketball.

Guests and speakers present consisted of President Raymond Bressler, Class Advisor Thomas Cox, Dean of Fresh- banquet part of the Banquet being dis- pensed with (without undue difficulty), numerals were presented the class athletes by Coach Beck, followed by a demonstra- tion of necromancy offered by Dr. Weldin.

The Newman Club was started that fall Edward Maher and “Bobby” O’Neill were among the new members and have continued active participation in the club program. Agitation about distribution of the Blanket Tax fund money was under way, the Beacon pioneering in this effort. Results of class elections were announced 50 dent Anne Peterson (Babbitt), Treasurer William Martin, Secretary Betty Ben- heimer, and Social Chairman William Rutledge. Also made public were the scholastic achievements of the various classes, 45 of our number making honors for the year, i. e. having an average for the preceeding year of 2.0 or over. Important events in November were: the Harriers’ placing third in the N.E.I.C. 3A meet, under the leadership of Les Nichols; the first Homecoming Day Carni- val — a huge success, and winning Dr. Austin Christopher Daley Civil Engineering 1 1 2 Briggs Street, Providence Mary Albina D’Aquanno Science, Biology E R H 1247 Plainfield Street, Johnston Mary Teresa D’Arcy Science, Biology X U 6 Hope Street, North Providence 51 Jeanne Marie Davis Home Economics, Textile E R H Landover, Maryland James Francis Dean Business Administration, Accounting 119 Bucklin Street, Pawtucket don being awarded a trip to Chicago as state winner of a 4-H Rural Electrification Contest. A blow to a number of those on the “borderline” was the announcement that the probation program in effect would be discontinued. The new order decreed that total quality points must equal re- quired credits, and seniors who had de- ficiencies at the end of the first semester or first semester deficiencies at the end of the third quarter would not graduate with their class.

Two announcements of importance were made in this month. Dance regu- lations were drawn up by faculty members concerning permissions, engagement of the hall, deposits, refreshments, and smok- ing rules; and participation by ten Rhode Island State students in the Civilian Pilot Training program of the Civil Aeronautics Authority was approved by the Board of Trustees. A sad blow to the student body 3 Lewiston Street, Kenyon 54 Starting the new year, Dr. Bressler ar- ranged for election, by the entire student body, of four students to serve as a com- mittee to consider management of the Blanket Tax Fund, still a sore issue with a number of students.

Another interim offered by a storm came in the form of the worst ice storm to hit Kingston in a decade.

In March, Dr. Bressler was granted a sabbatical leave, harbinger of the spectacu- lar events which were to develop during the next month. The Junior class assumed leadership in the student agitation which arose over what was unexplained admini- strative action.

A student committee of 39 members from all organizations on campus conducted mass meetings to de- termine how the student body wished to express their demands for explanation of the dismissal, and an impartial committee was sent to see the Governor, but the matter ended there, as far as student action was concerned. Under Dr. Bressler’s ad- ministration of nine years, Quinn, Green, and Eleanor Roosevelt Halls were built, 58 the alumni body was increased by a number of 1472 in eight years. The student-faculty committee which had been appointed to study the blanket tax situation, submitted a lengthy report, after two months’ study of the situation, which showed a need for revision of the set-up as it existed.

The new plan was to determine honors on a percentage basis with the standard set on the upper ten percent of the class. Senior honors would be based on maintaining an average in the upper ten percent of the class for three years. Under the old system, to make the honors list, a student was required to have a 2.0 average or, better. Once again we had to attempt to study for final exams when the beaches were Paul Francis Hines Agriculture, Horticulture H X Hines Road, Valley Falls 62 us didn’t heed the call — the beaches were sprinkled with students boning up on courses while basking in the sun. But exams ended, as they always do, and we left for the summer again — a few of us not to return. In September, we viewed with less superciliousness the smallest freshman class in recent years our new attitude, as befitted Juniors, was detachment, rather than “debunking”. Buying books proved to be a pleasant interlude, rather than an ordeal.

It was the start of the forty-eighth college year, and our third campus year. Of the original 400-odd students, 271 were left, — a rather large toll, but something to be expected in the weeding out process which is an integral part of an educational institution.

With October came the news that all our boys over 21 had to register for the draft — so critical were conditions in Europe. Wild speculations as to the amount of time it would take to find out draft numbers and worried faces were rampant on campus. In time, as we all know, some of our “eligible” students started to leave us — voluntarily and other- wise.

A Willkie club was formed and election issues were debated in many lively discussions, a Beacon survey showing that students favored the G.O.P. After months of agitation, choosing com- mittees for investigations and having a final report submitted, the first Blanket Tax meeting was held, with three faculty committee members and a student com- mittee comprised of one member from each Fred Paul Kostka Mechanical Engineering K H A 27 Ashmont Street, Providence John Joseph Kozak Civil Engineering I I K 12 Miller Lane, Woonsocket 66 Scholastic honors for the year 1939-1940 were achieved by forty-one of our group. Class executive honors were won by Presi- dent William Rutledge, Vice-President Anne Peterson (Babbitt), Secretary Mary Clarkin, Treasurer Eddie Maher, and Social Chairman Arnold Anderson. Two major events turned the public spotlight on Rhode Island State College during the month of November, 1940 — one participated in by the college as a whole, the other by an athletic team.

Six hundred students stormed the Kingston station to greet the cross country champs, and an exuberant stream of cars wound back to the campus, wildly acclaim- ing its heroes. Among the Tootellmen who conquered the first national title for Rhode Island State College, were Lester Nichols, Charlie Tingley, and John Moran, faithful and victory-producing athletes.

A special train was char- tered to convey about 1100 thrilled fans to see Rhody’s first appearance on the floor of the basketball capital of the nation. “Success or failure spelled success or fail- ure for that year’s campaign to break into the inner circle of competition”. We won the game, 57-42, and Rhode Island’s rip- roaring style of play came to stay. Even Josephine Patricia McMahon Business Administration E R H 1260 Greenwich Avenue, Apponaug William Richard McNally Physical Education P I K CO Kersey Road, Peace Dale 70 38, could not diminish the glory of that first victory in the Garden. The girl’s hockey team was not without glory, either. A very sucessful season resulted in a statement by Bill Mokray that it was probably the best college female hockey team this side of Philadelphia, “hotbed” of hockey. Veterans Shanley, Clarkin, Barlow, and D’Arcy were still turning in their usual good performances.

February was a month eagerly awaited by Junior co-ed and “ed” alike, for this month saw the Military Ball in all its uni- formed splendor, with the tapping of junior officers by Scabbard and Blade, and the election of a junior girl as Co-ed Colonel as features of the brilliant affair.

The honors list was the smallest in years, probably due to the new method of com- puting honors, but our class predominated with 40 honor students out of the school’s total of 137. Many junior Roosevelt Hall girls will never forget this fateful month, because they were quarantined for a week-end (the week-end of a P.

Earl Shannon’s (a Pawtucket lad), aggres- siveness and sportsmanship on the court have been commended by all. Hank Sperling and Howie French have also shown ability. Our track team has become famous this year for breaking records. Bob Nichols, our track star with the per- sonality smile, has led our team home to victory every time. The co-eds have displayed great skill on the hockey field, basketball and tennis courts and are not to be outdone. Nan Carpenter is the star of the Junior Ram- lettes. Chi Omega can be duly proud of Muriel Dickenson, their representative for co-ed colonel. She was chosen by Scabbard and Blade to be their leader for the year 1942 and 1943, succeeding Ruth Oldrid. The Junior Co-eds took an active part this year in the Ivy Chain, part of May Day activities, with Margaret Easter- brooks as the leader. Abrams, Shirley B. Home Ec., l. M. 900 Main Street.

Donald Dwyer Elizabeth Lincoln Ruth Whitaker Granville Stearns David Hedison Mrs. Margaret Parks 100 W E, the Sophomores salute you. In our two years on Rhody’s campus, we have tried to live up to the reputation of those who have come before us by keeping up our high scholastic rating and participating in extra-curricular activities. In our Sophomore year, we again chose the same leaders with the exception of Betty Lincoln who was elected to the Vice- Presidency. Donnie Dwyer, has been a triple threat throughout his short football career and deserves much acclaim. Armand Cure has contributed much to Rhody’s aerial circus in football and in basketball. George Meams deserves mention here for his ability to pick the basketball off the back- board. Then who can forget two of our better harriers, Larry Barret and Bill Allen, or those breathtaking catches of the pigskin by Larry Panciera? The co-ed ramlettes must not be over- looked in the panorama of sports for they have added much zest to our spirit. Betty Lincoln, Ruth Whitaker, Dottie Angell, and Harriet Stene are prospective letter women. Darthea Bacon, an outstanding Sopho- more in scholarship, has great literary ability which is so aptly displayed by her many contributions to the Rhode Island Review. The Soph Hop was a success due to Dave Hedison’s managerial ability. The queen of the affair this year was Mary Lightbody. Our class also had another queen in the person of Betty Lincoln who ruled over the Aggie Bawl. We shall carry on under our leaders for the endurance of the accelerated pro- gram and make Rhody proud of us. 101 102 Furlong. Hope F. Science , Biol. 19 Dayleston Drive, Edge wood Gahan, Estelle F.

" HE CLASS OF 19 and 45” entered Rhody in September and experienced a week of orienting by faculty and student leaders. The usual dances were held and get-acquainted programs started. At the end of the football season, the boys were allowed to remove their Fresh- man caps because of our victory over Connecticut, but the girls had to wait until after Christmas before they could discard their green ribbons. Miss Reilly was voted class advisor of the “frosh” and under her guidance they are bound to be a great group. Many from this, our baby class, have won scholastic honors. Yvonne Hunter leads them on. The traditional May Pole dance was done by the freshmen women with much enthusiasm. They entered into the spirit of the occasion and made it a success. Dick Morse, who left college in Febru- ary, was beginning to show great possibili- ties on the basketball court. We all miss his keen Rhody spirit and winning per- sonality. As Freshmen, we arc still looked upon as an insignificant group, but the time will come w ' hen we too shall be dignified upper-classmen.

State titles, sectional titles, and national titles were added to the al- ready large list of extraordinary achieve- ments in State athletics. The national title was the first one won by a Rhode Island athletic team and was a distinct mark of the sports’ progress at Kingston. The football team, in its first season under a new coach in 2 1 years, contributed one of its best seasons. William M. H. Beck, Jr., a Rhody alumnus succeeded his former chief, Frank W. Keaney at the helm of the gridders and did an outstand- ing job in producing five victories and one tie out of a possible eight game schedule. A near victory over Brown University was one of the feature highlights. Another was the fact that no less than 56 candidates were out for the team, the largest football delegation in the history of the college. Coach Fred Delmont Tootell developed the best cross country team in the history of the sport, here or elsewhere. Besides winning all of their dual meets, they went on to smash all records, team and individu- al, and win the New Englands, the I.C.4A’s, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association meet as well. This feat had never before been performed since the inception of harrier racing. Quite a feat and quite an honor for little Rhody. In Bob Nichols they boasted the greatest distance runner ever to matriculate at Rhody, and the outstanding runner in New England at the present time. Pres. Woodward Congratulates Coach Beck o 116 Conti Leaves the Game The basketball team, under the expert guidance of Coach Frank W. Keaney, once again performed in top condition, gaining recognition as the best team in New Eng- land, winning the New England Confer- ence Crown for the sixth time, and playing the nation’s best in the Sportwriters’ Tournament in Madison Square Garden, “the world series” of the hoop sport. In Stutz Modzelewski, the hoopinen had the new national intercollegiate scoring leader and in Stutz as well as Bill Rutledge, they boasted two men mentioned on numerous all-star and All-American fives. Being as it was the Golden Jubilee of basketball and that of the College’s founding as well, these outstanding performances coincided favor- ably. The baseball team coached by Frank Keaney, won the New England Confer- ence title, for the third time and compiled an outstanding record of 1 1 victories in 14 starts. This achievement was second only to that of Holy Cross, the tops in this section. Three members of the varsity nine, namely: Warner Keaney, a pitcher, Bud Conley, a shortstop, and Duke Ab- bruzzi, a very classy first-baseman were good enough to be scouted on more than one occasion by major league scouts. The outdoor track team regained its New England title and performed in creditable fashion to finish fourth in the I.C.4A. meet. The Tootellmen also stretched their dual meet win streak to 22. The team also boasted its first I.C.4A. in- dividual champion in Bob Nichols, title- holder of the two-mile run. Norman Wilcox was also the leading weight thrower in the East. The tennis, golf, and rifle teams also performed in capable fashion to keep up with the general tendency of outstanding performances by Rhode Island teams. The 1941-42 sports season was the best ever had in the fifty-year existence of the college. Never before, in one whole year, had the college sports representatives so completely dominated the sectional athletic picture or figured so prominently in national sports competition. It is indeed a fitting tribute to our coaches, Frank W. Keaney, F. Delmont Tootell, Bill Beck, Paul Cieurzo, and Kenneth L. Knicker- bocker and the undeniable result of good, hard, smart tutoring. If Rhody continues to progress in the future as it has in the past, then it will be the nation’s best in everything in no time. 117 National 13koai :asti c Pompan y.

When William M. H. Beck, Jr. assumed command of the gridiron forces in September of that year, it was the first time since 1920 that someone other than Frank W. Keaney was directing the foot- ballers. Beck, a Rhody alumnus and former pupil of Coach Keaney, succeeded his mentor after having served as his as- sistant for the past seven years. His capa- bilities may have been doubted at first, but at season’s end, all uncertainties as to Bill’s qualifications had disappeared even from the most ardent skeptics, as he piloted his team to one of the best gridiron 120 Ed Mahn Walt Blecharczyk Warren Dubcc seasons in the college’s fifty years of exist- ence. With only a dozen experienced hands available with which to start the campaign, Coach Beck with the unexcelled assistance of his backfield coach Paul F. Cieruzo, molded one of the largest and best all- around small college football squads in the East. Bill’s popularity grew daily and po- tential aid came from all sources. At one time as many as 56 candidates were in uniform ready to do battle when called upon. The climax in numbers was reached in the Massachusetts State encounter, when 46 players, in all, saw action on the field of play at one time or another. The 1941 football squad, by far the largest in Rhody’s existence, was one of the most spirited, capable, and dependable ever to represent the Ram banner. It displayed the qualities of its tutors on the field of play to such an extent that it was able to win five games out of an eight game schedule, while losing two and tieing one. One of the Kingstonian’s oldest rivals, the Coast Guard Academy from New London, Conn., was the first football ma- chines in the Ram’s path to success. Not having beaten the Rhode Island entry since 1922, in the past 1 1 contests between them, the Cadets assured themselves of their initial triumph early in this game. Benefit- ting from abundance of manpower, and home grounds, the Coast Guardsmen ran Front Row : Dubce, Bleckarczyk, McCabe, Co-captain Narducci, Co-captain, Maher, Carpen- ter, Conti, Harvey, Coates, Flynn, Flori. Second Row: Bowen, Thayer, Strehlke, Morel, Merolla, Del Gizzo, Conyers, Grupposo, Holm- berg, Coach Beck, Coach Cicurzo. Third Row : Panciera, Hanna, Tanner, Smith, Siegelman, Pierik, Heditsian, Cure. Fourth Row: Manager Kopech, Dwyer, Bcrtwcll, Magee, Allen, Duffy, Fournier, Zweir, Hilde- brand, Trainer Cole, Asst. Coach Orlando. ' I ' argo Flori Ralph Narducci Roy Conyers roughshod over the Beckmen. It was the initial contest for both clubs, but the vic- tors had been at practice for over a month before the Rams began their pre-season training. Furthermore, they boasted one of the strongest small college elevens in the country, a fact which was later very well displayed as their season progressed, and they annihilated all of their opponents with ease. The Merrimen displayed a devastating attack from the start and scored twice in the first period and once in the second stanza. The spearheads of these attacks were their Captain Bill Thompson and Buck Carter, two excellent backs. Inci- dentally, the sailors had a veteran team operating, the only newcomer being at the center slot. Meanwhile, the Rhode Island- ers’ attack failed to materialize consistenly enough and injuries to four key men before the first half was over further hampered their efforts. Having chalked up a 19-0 lead at the completion of the first half, the Cadets came back in the second half to complete the rout, with the aid of three intercepted passes and triumph by a 38-0 score. The defeat failed to dampen the morale of the squad but instead, it spurred them on to greater achievement to prove to their followers that they were better than the result indicated. With four regulars in- jured, Coach Beck went searching for replacements and came up with the sea- son’s sensation in Bill Rutledge, one of the 122 Rhodv Strikes Once More outstanding all-around athletes Rhode Island has ever produced. Blond Bill made good in his first start against Maine Uni- versity. A regular gridder in high school, Bill had not participated in the sport since matriculating at college, three years before. However, he proved his mettle by sparking his team to a 20-13 upset victory over a strong Bear eleven at Orono. Rutledge ran 95 yards for a touchdown, and tossed two passes, one each to his ends, Jim Har- vey, and Larry Panciera, for tallies. This contest also proved that the club was im- proving with each contest and that mis- takes made in previous games had been adjusted. The third contest for the Ram eleven proved to be a warmup. The Kingstonians had a field day at the expense of the Lowell Textile team, their opponents at Meade Field on that occasion. The final tally was 39-0 in Rhody’s favor. The contest was not as loosely played as the score may tend to indicate, but the opposition was not of too strong a variety. It enabled the Rhody coaching stafT to make use of the large number of substitutes, and thus give them experience for later games to come. It was a game without injuries and put the Rams in good condition for their all- important contest with Brown University on the following week. The first intra-state football contest for State with Brown proved to be one of the outstanding football games ever played at Brown Stadium in many a year. The Rams had been pointing for this contest and played from start to finish with a venge- ance and courageous spirit that was won- derful to watch. The capacity crowd had not one dull moment in the entire 60 minutes of play. The Beckmen outplayed their more highly touted rivals from the start and the first half ended with neither team having scored. The local offensive machine functioned well, but on several occasions fell just short of completing a pass or a run that would have meant a score. George Conti gave one of the finest exhibitions of field generalship seen in years in addition to producing the out- standing defensive plays of the entire after- noon. In the latter department, Walter Blecharczyk was also immense. The de- fensive play of the Rams had been taken as something to be proud of, but in this game, it attained the pinnacle of excell- ence. The Ram forward wall continuously outcharged and outplayed their opponents, and in the end it was the reserve strength of the Brunoians coupled with the smile of Lady Luck which spelled victory for the Stahleymen. The second half began in much the same fashion as the first had been. The Kingstonians stuck to their guns and pressed their opponents constantly back- ward. Near the end of the third quarter, a long run by Swingler, a penalty, and a successful pass put the Bruin in scoring territory. However, the Ram defense stiffened and two attempts to pierce the Rhody forward wall from the two yard line failed. Then in desperation Coach Close to Pay Dirt 123 Jim Harvey Skip Stahley sent in his f irst-string back- field and Dick High just managed to sneak over on the next try. The point after was good. Brown 7, Rhody 0. The clubs continued to battle on even terms for a while and then the Rams made their bid. A long pass from Rutledge to Harvey placed the Rams on the five yard line. On the next play, Narducci went over the goal line on a line buck, but it was nullified by an offside. The next play brought the Rams back to the two yard line: then Rutledge attempted to pierce the line for what would have been a sure score, but as he hit the line he was tackled, and in the process, Bob Priestly, the Brown right end came in stole the ball and raced 98 yards for their second tally. He also kicked the point-after-touchdown to make the score 14-0 in their favor. The steal was disputed by our team but to no avail, the referees failing to agree with the Rhody reasoning, which was later proven to be absolutely correct in the motion pic- tures taken of the contest. Coaches Cieurzo, Tootell, Beck. 124 Front Row : Coates, Flori, Maher, Blccharezyk, Flynn, Carpenter, Harvey. Second Row: Narducci, McCabe, Cure, Conti. Following this saddening turn of events, the Beckmen surged back to score on a long pass from Armand Cure to Jim Har- vey, the point was good and the score was 14-7; it remained that way till the end. It was really a heartbreaker for Rhody to lose after having fought so valiantly throughout the contest, and then to have all efforts nullified by a referee’s decision. It was a game that Rhody could well be proud of. The next home game was a replica of the first one with Lowell Textile, the home forces winning by a comfortable margin of 34-6. The loser’s tally did not materialze until the latter part of the fourth period when the substitutes were holding sway. Coach Beck used 46 men in this contest, an all time high in Rhody gridiron annals. Donnie Dwyer, the sophomore sensation continued his amazing display of running and punting, and as the individual spark- plug in the rout. This contest enabled the coaches to rest their regulars for their next game, that with Providence College, their other intra-state rival. This was a night game, and the Rams’ third in the span of 1 1 days, quite a burden. It was one of the outstanding battles of the entire season and produced enough thrills for the capacity crowd of 12,000 to last them for another year. The tide of battle sec-sawed back and forth, with first the Friars in command and then the Rams. This game was for keeps and neither team would give an inch. There were several attempts for successful scores, but in the end neither team had managed to penetrate past the final chalked line of the other and produce that highly desirable tally. Rhody’s air attack was more than troublesome to the Smith-hillers and the latter’s ground attack had like effect in the Rhody camp. At the end of the 60 minutes of relentless battle, the score was still 0-0. The defense of each team was strong enough to repel the offensive on- slaughts of each forward wall as was ex- emplified by the failure to score. The game was played at La Salle Field and attracted the first capacity crowd since the inception of the arc-light classic five years ago. Rhody went after its fourth victory on the following Saturday in a game with Worcester Tech at Worcester. It was one of the worst days on which to play, for the field was drenched from continuous rain, and the going was treacherous. The elements hampered the Ram attack which functioned well on dry territory and after scoring a touchdown on a Rutledge to Conti forward pass, the Rams settled down to protect their lead. Only straight foot- ball was resorted to for fear of injuring one of the players by the employ of razzle dazzle. This win gave the Beckmen a record of four wins, two losses, and one tie in seven games. A win in their last en- counter would provide them with one of 125 the best records ever recorded by a Ram gridiron machine in recent years. A Homecoming Day atmosphere was in the air as the State and University of Con- necticut varsities took the field. Earlier in the morning, the Ram yearlings had walloped the Husky Frosh by a 26-6 score and the varsity was eager to do the same. Being the last game of the season, it marked the last collegiate appearance of the seniors, namely: Co-captains Edmund Maher and Albert Carpenter, Bill Rut- ledge, and Maurice Flynn. A banner crowd was on hand to watch the proceed- ings and they were not disappointed. Connecticut had had a mediocre season and they were out to gain a triumph in order to salvage something from their dis- appointing campaign. However, the Rams had other ideas and thwarted their oppon- ents’ attempts to tally time and again. They were not idle themselves and man- aged to score in the first quarter to make the count Rhody 6, Univ. of Conn. 0. No scoring was done throughout the remain- der of the game but the complexity did not change. The struggle gained in intensi- ty as the minutes ticked off and the U- Conns became desperate; only some brilliant pass interceptions by George Conti saved the Rams from being scored upon and possibly defeated. The colorful con- test added to the star-studded all day celebration which included a gala carnival highlighting the evening’s festivities. Friday Night Rally 126 FOOTBALL VARSITY Bud Carpenter The 1941 football team had no individu- al brilliant star, such as Duke Abbruzzi was in the 1940 eleven, but it substituted brilliant teamwork, undaunted courage, spirit, and fighting determination in its place to be regarded as one of the best elevens ever to represent the Blue and White in its half-century of existence. There were no individual standouts in this group but an interdependent machine which functioned smoothly under the guidance of Coaches Bill Beck, and Paul Cieurzo. With one successful season under their belts, these two mentors will no doubt be able to continue their highly commend- able coaching careers. In Conti, Blechar- czyk. Cure, Heditsian, Conyers, Harvey, Panciera, Fournier, Narducci, Flori.

Th eir contentions were on the support of the brilliant showings that his charges had made during the cross-country season of 1940. They based their beliefs on the fact that the Ram Varsity harriers of a year ago had won all of their dual meets, swept the New Englands, captured the I.C.4A. crown and finished third in the N.C.A.A. But they had evidently under- rated the much esteemed and highly re- garded Toot. Those rooters had probably forgotten that the impossibilities of one are the possibility of F. Delmont Tootell. The proof in these statements is simplicity in itself. With a veteran team back from the successful campaign of 1940, Coach Too- tell with the aid of his assistant Doc Erwin moulded the greatest cross-country team ever to run in the country. The latest edition of the Ram harriers won all of its dual meets, the New Englands, the I.C4A’s and climaxed this collossal season by also capturing the N.C .A.A. meet. It was the first time in the history of the sport that one team had swept all honors. It is also the first undisputed national title to come to Rhode Island. This is the greatest achievement that any team can ever accomplish and the greatest honor that any coach can ever earn. The first dual meet with Fordham Uni- versity at New York City provided Ram followers with some very cheering news. With Bob Nichols pacing the way, the Rhode Island contingent had the first five men across the finish line and thus scored a shutout against their namesake from Gotham, a rare occurence, indeed. The final score was Rliody 15, Fordham 51. The next dual meet with a supposedly strong University of New Hampshire team, proved without doubt that the Rams had not scored their first shutout on a fluke, because they again turned the trick and again on foreign te rritory. This time the score was 15-40 in our favor. A very strong harrier five from North- eastern University came to Kingston late in October intent on resting sectional laurels from our favorites. However, when the final tally was made, they had to be content with a 17-43 beating and had to consider themselves lucky to escape being Front Row: Mgr. Wright, O’Sullivan, Tingley, R. Nichols, Barrett. Second Row: Coach Erwin, Moran, Taylor, Roche, L. Nichols, Coach Tootell. 129 the third victim by a perfect score. The fourth place garnered by Mike Pronodsky was all that saved them from being shut- out. Bob Nichols again led the pack. Then came Rhody’s arch sports rivals, the University of Connecticut runners. They managed to extend the Rams to a slightly greater extent than the others had done but succumbed to a 20-38 trimming. The race was contested on Rhody’s course and was witnessed by a large throng. Rob- bins of the visitors was the only contender but he finished far in the wake of Bob Nichol’s blazing finish. It marked another undefeated harrier season in dual com- petition, the third in a row. Continuing their winning ways, the harriers went on to Boston early in Novem- ber and captured the N.E.I.C4A. meet with a record breaking team total of 23 points. Bob Nichols was the individual winner and he also set a new ' record of 20 minutes flat for the 4-mile course. They bunched their first five finishers in the first ten, bettering last year’s result by seven points. The 4-mile course record at Franklin Park has been set and reset by the Ram runners in their victory cam- paigns over the past few years. One week later, at Van Courtland Park in New York City, the Tootellmen re- captured their newest laurels, the 1.C.4A. trophy which was won by them for the first time in the previous year. This victory proved to the racing public that the 1940 feat was justly deserved. They set a new mark of 31 points as a team total. Although Bob Nichols failed to win, he was not far behind the greatest runner of the present era, Les Mac Mitchell, the N.Y.U. flash who won the solo crow n for the third con- secutive time. The new team total of 31 130 points shattered the previous standard, set bv the Kingstonians in 1940 by 41 tallies. The Rams had a tremendous margin of points over their nearest rival. This victory clearly stamped them as the tops in the East in cross-country. Just one week later, the undefeated runnners traveled to East Lansing, Michi- gan in quest of their first victory in the Nationals. This time, they succeeded in defeating over 100 teams from all over the United States, and become the first team in the history of the sport to win the N.E.I.C.4A., I.C.4A., and the N.C.A.A. titles all in one year. It was the culmi- nation of the greatest record in harrier history by the greatest team in history. The Rams notched their triumph with a spark- ling 83 point team total with Bob Nichols again showing the way finishing in 7th place. Coach Tootell’s axiom of work, work, and more work sure produced the results. CROSS-COUNTRY VARSITY R.l.

The Keaney coached courtmen competed in 2 1 scheduled contests with the strongest fives of this section in addition to the post- season clash at the Garden. The Hoopsters won 18 games out of 21 during the regular season defeating such highly talented quintets as Fordham Uni- versity, St. Joseph’s College, Holy Cross, Springfield College, and the University of Connecticut among the stronger teams in the East. Providence College and Brown University, our local rivals also were beaten during the campaign. Tufts College, Maine University, the University of New Hampshire, Northeastern University, and American International were other teams to feel the power of the galloping Rams. Each of the New Conference members were defeated twice and the Kingstonians thus captured their sixth conference title in six successive years. Twice they scored more than 100 points against the Uni- versity of New ' Hampshire. The first time, they set a new intercollegiate scoring record when they trounced the Swaseymen by a 127-50 margin. This surpassed their previous record of 103 points which they posted in the first clash with the University of Connecticut at Kingston in 1940, and won 102-81. Front Row : Coach Keaney, Cure, Modzclcwski, Rutledge, Applebee, Shannon. Second Row: Sperling, Pansa, Lownds, French, Obradovich. Third Row: Coach Cieurzo, Mearns, Manager Goldman, Federico. 133 The only losses suffered by the Rhody- ites were at the hands of Temple University in Convention Hall in Philadelphia, Pa- Providence College at the Auditorium, and Brown University at Marvel Gymnasium, in a much disputed contest, as well as in the post-season classic, by Toledo Uni- versity at New York. The Rams were led this year by their two outstanding co-captains, Stanley Mod- zelewski and Bill Rutledge. Modzelewski, the nation’s highest individual scoring champion for the past two seasons gained additional honors by setting an all-time recognized mark for total points scored in four years in college. He shattered the previous mark by 1596 points set by Hank Luisetti of Stanford University in 1939 by tallying 1 730 points bettering the form- er total by over 125 points. Stutz was again named to numerous All-American quintets and gained national recognition for his talented court achievements. He established new individual scoring marks for Rhode Island State, New England Conference, sectional, and national com- petition. Rutledge on the other hand, while not as dominant in the public eye, contributed IN ROUTING- FORDHAM.Hfc FEU.

The blonde forward’s steady brilliance was matchless at home. His cool- ness under fire, and an enlightening play at the opportune moments was once again clearly displayed in his exhibitions at Madison Square Garden as well as at home. He became the fourth man to join the select circle of Rhody “1100 point” scorers joining such other stars as Chet Jaworski, Stutz, and Bud Conley. Invaluable aid came from two new regu- lar members of the hoop squad in the persons of Earl Shannon and Bob Apple- bee. Shannon replacing the talented Bud Conley at forward, the latter having gradu- ated, did a splendid job. He covered the court with deftness and speed and played a major portion of each game. He tallied 360 points for his first regular fling on the varsity ; last year he alternated with Apple- bee on the forward line. Applebee was the most improved player of the entire squad and contributed some magnificent defensive work to combine with his out- standing offensive efforts. From his guard position, he managed to score a total of 289 points, a very high mark for a guard. The other defensive post left vacant by the graduation of Flip Kcancy was alternately filled by Armand Cure and George Mearns. An injury to the latter’s right hand early in the season, lessened his effectiveness and Cure saw action the ma- jority of the time. Both were sophomores and will probably each see regular service next year. Cure excelled defensively on several occasions. The 1941-42 basketball season was one of the most successful in several years and gained in significance by the fact that it was the Golden Jubilee of the hoop sport as well as the Golden Jubilee of the found- ing of the college. Once again the Keany- men captured the Conference crown and were ranked tops in this section as is proven by their selection for the Sport- writers’ Tournament in New York. The 135 latter is generally regarded as the “World Series” of collegiate basketball, and to be chosen to compete in it, is surely a dis- tinguished honor, of which few teams here- abouts can boast. The Rams opened their hoop campaign without the usual “soft touch” quintet as their opponent. Instead, they were op- posed by a very powerful St. Joseph’s team here at Rodman Hall. The visit- ors displayed one of the best players seen here in years in Bud Senesky, a 6 ' 2 " for- ward who did a magnificent job in holding Bill Rutledge to a low total while tallying in double figures himself. The visitors played without their regular centre and this was a decided handicap. The nip and tuck struggle ended with the home team out front by a 75-62 margin. It was the opening contest for each team, but despite this the quality of the contest was of mid-season variety. The Hawks once again proved to be one of the best attrac- tions by packing the gym, although minus their scoring star of a year ago, Larry Kenney. The game was very cleanly played and much to the liking of the spectators. Tufts College then invaded Kingston and was smothered by a 73-39 score. The Keaneymen swarmed all over the visitors and scored with reckless abandon thus avenging the farcical contest which the Medfordites produced last season on their home court. The only satisfaction they gained from this game was that they held the Rams to a figure lower than their ac- customed “two-points-per-minute” total of 80. Modzelewski and Shannon again led the Ram attack with Rutledge and Apple- bee not far behind. The first victim of the Ram “100 point” surges was American International College from Springfield. They succumbed to the tune of 103-64. This game was an easy one for the Rhodyites and they went to town. The game was fairly rough but never close. The regulars saw little action 136 Trainer Cole in the contest leaving soon after they had established a very comfortable lead. The substitutes took over and performed credit- ably for the remainder of the contest. Frank Obradovich The first 1942 appearance of the Rams in Madison Square Garden occurred when the Rams met their Gotham namesake on January 3. It was the feature contest on George Mearns 137 one of the more prominent double-headers sponsored by Ned Irish in his New York emporium. The fast and fancy passing and shooting of the Keaneymen once again captured the fancy of the crowd and they proved their appreciation by cheering loudly at each opportunity. The game was very closely fought and wasn’t won until the teams had entered an overtime period. At the end of the regulation time, the teams were tied at 52 points each. The herculean efforts of Bill Rutledge enabled the Rams to tie up the ball game in regu- lation time and to win in the extended session. He more than capably filled the breach after Stutz had been dismissed from the game on personals soon after the second stanza had begun. The latter had tallied nearly one half of his team’s total at the half-way mark. The Kelleher- coached squad fought the local entry to the finish but the smooth-working Rhode Islanders managed to come out on top at game’s end. It was marked by another “Ram Special” under the full supervision of Bill Mokray. The proceeds from the trip netted approximately $600 to the Fiftieth Anniversary Fund, a worthy cause indeed. It marked the fourth consecutive tri- umph of the season for the Rams and stamped them as possible candidates for the tournament later in the season. Rut- ledge tied the all-time Garden record for field goals by netting an even dozen and his all-around play met with the approval of all. Cure played an exceptionally good game defensively. Fitzgerald and Loeffler of the visitors were thorns in the Rams’ cause until their departure late in the game via the foul route. Maine University was the first confer- ence casualty. The Oronomen lost by a 79-48 margin having little to offer in the way of opposition for the smooth working Rams. It was their first game of the season and they were not ready for the opposition supplied by the local quintet. Modzelewski 138 again led the team in the offensive depart- ment while Applebee, who had begun to find the range, contributed a good share of points. Shannon and Rutledge per- formed their usual competent roles. This was the first New England Conference victory for the winners and started them off toward their sixth consecutive confer- ence title. The first loss of the season was supplied by Temple University at Convention Hall in Philadelphia. The elongated Owls had too much height for the Rhode Island delegation and scored a 57-49 triumph. It was the second loss in as many years to the Messikomer lads in the same place. Rhody started off in grand fashion and had built up a 9 point lead in a short span of playing time, but the Quaker City lads, led by their tall sophomore forward, Bob Dorn and set-shot ace Angelo Musi pulled even and then passed the Keaneymen near the end of the first stanza. Try as they might the Rams, could not close the gap and their late surge was for naught. A small band of faithful rooters, students, alumni, and fans made the trip to cheer the team on. The Rams recovered from their initial setback to defeat Northeastern University a few night later by a large margin, 98-60. It was their second conference win in as many starts. The scoring power of the Rodmanites was too much for the Dunn- men and they failed to give the Rams the expected brand of opposition. Once again Coach Keaney resorted to wholesale use of his substitutes in order to keep the game from being a total romp. The scrubs just missed bringing the total up to the century mark by two points. Providence College provided the next upset on the Rams’ schedule when they nosed out the Keaneymen, 60-54, at the Auditorium in Providence. The triumph was the first for the Crottymen in some years and was well earned. The Friars outplayed their intra-state rivals most of the way and struggled to the end to gain the triumph. For the Kingstonians it was the second loss of the season and the first 139 Hank Sperling Artie Pansa to local competition. The game was not indicative of the capabilities of the local aggregation and their style of play that night was not the type which the Rhody fan is accustomed to see. The loss of Applebee and Modzelewski via the person- al foul route midway in the second stanza decidedly hampered their chances for victory. Rhode Island had to come from behind to triumph over the University of Con- necticut in a game at Storrs by a margin of 66-59. The visitors trailed all of the way with the exception of the last ten minutes when a late surge brought them out front where they stayed till the con- clusion of the contest. There were no tickets available for Rhody fans, the ath- letic authorities at Storrs deciding not to sell in order to exclude any possibility of another disturbance resulting from an over-crowded gym as was the case a year ago. The Ram sharpshooters found their range late in the game and Stutz, Rut- ledge, and Shannon fired in enough points to win. This was the third consecutive conference win for the Keaneymen and placed them in the top spot. Massachusetts State and Worcester Tech were also added to the list of Ram victims in the same week marking the resumption of school after the mid-year recess. The Statesmen were trimmed by an 83-68 score, while the Bigler quintet was trampled by an 86-59 margin. Neither game was closely contested as neither of the two teams had a team equal to the task of making the game close. The Rams had begun to hit their stride and would be hard to beat. Both games were played away from home, the Mass game at Am- herst and the Tech contest at Worcester. The weakest team to face the Rams all year came to Kingston soon thereafter to play the Rams. It was their misfortune to meet the Rams when they were red-hot 140 and a new intercollegiate scoring record was established. The Rams waltzed to a 127-50 win. Coach Keaney pulled his regulars out after about ten minutes of play and did not send them in again, but even that could not keep the score from mount- ing. The Durhamites just could not cope with the offensive strength of the local quintets and had little in the way of an offense of their own. No less than six Rhode Islanders scored in double figures. This was a new record total for one team in regulation 40 minute contest in recog- nized college basketball circles. Brown University, Holy Cross, and Springfield College were the next victims with Connecticut and Northeastern victims for the second time in the interim. The Holy Cross game was a special contest for the Navy Relief Fund at the Auditorium. It provided a highlight in being the night when Stutz broke the existing 4-year scor- ing record. A capacity crowd saw this contest which was part of a charity double- header. The Crusaders provided unex- pected opposition. Maine, New Hampshire, and Providence College were the next victims on the Rams’ list. The first two games were away and the last one at home. Rhody again tallied over 100 points against the Swaseymen winning by 102-54. The victory over Providence College avenged their early season setback and placed them in the lead for the mythical state championship. The score was 68-54 in favor of our team but the Smith-hillers fought to the end. Brown provided the third defeat of the regular campaign by being declared the victor 83-82 in a very shaky decision by 141 the time-keeper. Stutz scored a basket as the gong sounded which many believed to be the winning points for State; the timer then ruled it had been made after time had elapsed and Rhody was the loser in- stead of the winner. The game, other than being the last collegiate contest for Co- captains Stutz Modzelewski and Bill Rut- ledge, had little bearing on State’s chances of being picked for the Writers’ Tourney in New York, and the announcement of their selection was made on the following day. In the Tournament contest, the Keaney- men ran afoul a good ball club in Toledo University from Ohio and a scoring star in Bob Gerber, who led his team to victory by scoring 37 points breaking all existing records for individual scoring in the Gar- den in the process. The team scores also established new Tourney marks. The game was fast from start to finish and had the fans reeling at the end. Although beaten, Rhode Island gave a good account of themselves and were still favored to come back by many of the fans, and writers. Bill Rutledge was the individual Ram brilliant displaying a magnificent brand of play, but he failed to get the needed sup- port from the rest of his teammates to come out on top. However, he was selected on the All-Tournament team along with Stutz Modzelewski and both competed in an all-star game at the Garden several days after the tourney ended. This was one of the most successful sea- sons in Coach Keaney’s 22 year reign. The loss of Rutledge and Modzelewski through graduation will leave large gaps to fill on next year’s quintet. However, the Menty can usually be counted upon to produce another winning combination. This team 142 Showing How It’s Done won the New England Conference crown Obradovich, Lownds, and Pansa will also and was again tops in New England. be lost through graduation.

Stutz Modzelewski, the peer of the nation’s scorers, was the coaches’ sole unanimous choice for the All-Conference team, in addition to being the only repeater of last winter’s all-star five. Modzelewski, for the third successive year, led the league in all departments of offensive play, with a total of 189 points for Conference competition. Winzler, of Connecticut, Bob Applebee and Billy Rutledge, of Rhode Island, missed winning unanimous choice for the All-Conference team by a single point, while A1 Pajonas of Northeastern and Earl Shannon, of Rhode Island, had six of the eight possible votes. 1941-1942 ALL-NEW ENGLAND CONFERENCE TEAM First Rutledge (Rhode Island) If Panjonas (Northeastern) ) , Shannon (Rhode Island) ) Modzelewski (Rhode Island) c Winzler (Connecticut) Ig (Rhode Island) rg Second Mugavero (Connecticut) If Jaskilka (Connecticut) rf Small (Maine) c Monica (New Hampshire) lg Cure (Rhode Island) rg FINAL STANDING W L Rhode Island .... 8 0 Connecticut 6 2 Northeastern 4 4 Maine 2 6 New Hampshire. .. 0 8 PC. 1.000 .750 .250 .000 147 INDOOR TRACK HE varsity indoor track team once again competed with the top-flight relay teams in the nation during their 1941-1942 season. Although, they failed to win any of the races in which they were entered, it was really no fault of their own. The relayers were again matched against the finest mile relay teams that the country can boast. Their mediocre showings were due mainly to the lack of experienced run- ners and reserves, and also to the lack of adequate facilities to capably train them for the indoor competition. Forced to run their practice sessions on the small wooden oval aside the gymnasi- um, they were no match for the teams that could train on the wooden tracks laid out in spacious field houses, where the elements come into very little play. The Tootell- men also had lost two of their starting quartet from last season and the two new- comers, Jim Cole, and Mai ShurtleflF, were forced to produce without previous experi- ence. Only Lincoln Bagshaw and Dick Fournier were available from last year’s team. The Rams competed in six meets, name- ly: the Millrose meet in New York’s spacious Madison Square Garden, the B.A.A. Games in the Boston Garden, the New York A.C. Games in the 49th Street Arena, the A.A.U. meet in New York, and 148 Bullock, Dahl, Platt, Burdick. the K. of C. and I.C.4A. meets also in Gotham. In all of these meets they were matched against the best in the field, as was exemplified by the fact that the heats in which the Rams competed, were usually the fastest heats of the night. Running against such teams as: Syracuse University, Pittsburgh University, Boston College, Tufts College, Villanova University, Wil- liams College, Seton Hall College, St. John’s College, and Colgate University, the indoor-men performed creditably al- though they failed to win any of the races. They did manage to gain one second, three thirds, and two fourths out of their efforts. The team which was composed of Dick Fournier, Lincoln Bagshaw, Jim Cole, and Mai Shurtleff ran in that order through most of the meets. The relayers’ performances were some- what augmented by the competition of the weightmen, who also competed in several of the indoor fracases. Norman Wilcox managed to win the 35 pound weight throw in the A.A.U. meet and also gain a fourth in the same event in the I.C.4A. championships. Jack Kreuger, Rhody’s ace shotputter, earned a third place in the A.A.U. meet, and a fourth in the I.C.4A. in his specialty. Bob Nichols, State’s out- standing distance runner competed in several of the invitation two-mile runs but failed to place. Lack of experience proved to be his biggest handicap in running against the nation’s best. The indoor trackmen once again swept the Cambridge Intercollegiates, the in- formal meet sponsored by Harvard Uni- versity. Many of the Rhody second- stringers competed but still gained enough points to win the meet unofficially. 149 BASEBALL Conti, Bellino, Toppin, Holdsworth, McCabe, Flori.

Front Row: Second Row: Third Row: OACH FRANK W. KEANEY, regarded in these parts as an out- standing baseball mentor, proved his wizardry in the diamond game by pro- ducing one of the best nines to operate in New England. His 1941 team won 11 games and lost only three, a record bettered only by the consistent Holy Cross nine. Speed and smart baserunning were the factors which helped the Rams garner outstanding success on the ball field. They set new base stealing records for the New England Conference and unofficial records for intercollegiate competition. Weakness at the plate, a constant ail- ment at State, was almost eliminated, being supplanted by some very good all-around hitting. This fact can very well be illus- trated when one realizes that the Rhody team scored a total of 85 runs to their opposition’s 23 in the 14-gamc schedule. Besides capturing the conference title, the Keaneymen tied with Brown University for the mythical State championship, and defeated Providence College twice. The hurling was of the better variety and was capably handled by Warner Keaney, Bob Tanner, and George Conti. Bud Conley, the regular shortstop also took a successful fling at twirling. Bill Rutledge was the hitting star of the Rams finishing the sea- son with a .354 average, while Duke Ab- bruzzi captured the fielding honors. The Duke was regarded as one of best all- around initial-sack guardians to be seen in New England. Keaney and Conley were also under the scrutiny of major league scouts. 150 The Keaneymen scored three shutouts in their winning total. The goose-eggs were chalked up at the expense of Lowell Textile, in the season’s opener, Providence College in the game at Kingston, and the third shutout was pinned on Brown Uni- versity also at Kingston. In winning their fourth conference crown, the Kingston forces defeated Maine twice, both here and away, the University of Connecticut twice, also at home and away, and split with Northeastern University, winning the game at Kingston and losing the Boston encounter by respective scores of 7-1, and 0-1; New Hampshire University was the only team in the conference on whom the Rams failed to pin a defeat. The Durham- ites scored a 2-1 victory over the local team in the only meeting between the two Tanner Scores Another clubs. The game at Durham was post- poned. It was the only home defeat of the season for the Rams. The Rams also boasted victories over Worcester Tech, by a score of 10-2, and Boston University, to the tune of 10-5. Brown University was defeated by a 2-0 score here, while they nosed out the King- stonians at Aldrich Field by a 3-1 margin. Providence College was a double victim, having a shutout pinned on them at Kings- ton, 3-0, and being walloped at Hendrick- ens Field by an 8-2 score. Besides Co-captains Warner Keaney, Duke Abbruzzi, Bud Conley, and Frank Zammarchi, State also boasted among its veterans, Bill Rutledge, Rene Duranleau, Lyman Cranston, Bill McNally, Bud Jones, Elmer Cornell, Hike Hedison, and Artie 151 Final Score: R. I. 3— P. C. 0 Pansa. With the exception of Jones, Cor- nell, Pansa, and McNally, all of the rest were regulars and saw action in each con- test. In addition, considerable aid was received from sophomores Bob Tanner, George Conti, Tobey Coates, and Frank Bellino to mention the more prominent ones. The invaluable aid in the pitching department of Tanner and Conti cannot be rightly enumerated in the allotted space. They, together with Warner Keaney, ac- counted for all of the victories with the exception of the Boston University one which was chalked up by Bud Conley. The hitting and fielding of the Ram nine was of a very fine variety and was very instrumental in the Rams’ victory string. Abbruzzi and Cranston were the chief base-stealers and pilfered more than a dozen bases between them. Their hitting, along with Conley’s was also very timely. Hedison cared for the majority of the backstopping duties and proved his worth. Only Cranston, Rutledge, Tanner, Con- ti, Pansa, Bellino, Coates, and Hedison are left for this year’s team. However, several promising candidates are available from last year’s frosh team in Dave Hedison, a brother of the capable Hike, and Donnie Dwyer. Both of these lads are excellent outfielders and will probably greatly aid the Ram cause on the diamond come spring time. Jim Cole and Bob Magee, shortstop and pitcher respectively on last year’s freshman nine, are expected to pro- vide Coach Keaney with two very needy reserves. All Eyes Front 152 R. I.

The Tootellmen conquered all foes with ease, including some of the most formid- able teams in the East. Manhattan Uni- versity, always a power in New York track circles, was soundly trounced at Kingston by a 95J 2-39 2 margin. Boston College one of the best teams in New England was handily defeated by an 82 2 3-52 2 3 score. The University of Connecticut, Brown University, and the University of New Hampshire were the other victims by respective scores of 121 }4- 13 2 , 94-41, and 98-37. These scores were previously unheard of in track circles and the margins of victory, sometimes nearly 90 points, were unbelievable. However, the quality of Ram track and field aggregations has never been questioned, not since F. Delmont Tootell took charge in 1924, and their fame has spread far and wide. Many of the larger schools in the country will no longer com- pete with the Kingston track outfits for fear of having little chance of winning and not willing to risk a loss. Coach Tootell had one of the best all-around track teams in his coaching career last spring. In the field events, he had such outstanding stars, as: 154 Jack Kreuger, A1 Gudcczauskas, Norman Wilcox, Mel Jewett, Dick Forte, Joe Weis- man, Bill Forsstrom. In the running events, his performers included: Bob Nichols, Bob Black, Boh Dixon, Bill Mc- Nally, Herb Gosling and Link Bagshaw among others. Frank Cromwell, John Ma- honey, and Forsstrom, Jewett, and Forte were the competitors in the jumps. Aside from again completing an un- defeated season, the Tootellmen won the New Englands with a total of 30 2 3 points, from Holy Cross, thus recapturing the title they relinquished a year ago, and finished fourth in the I.C.4A. meet in New York. In the New England meet, the Rams won five individual titles to capture top honors more easily than heretofore. In the I.C.4A’s, they managed to win only one individual crown, Bob Nichols winning the two-mile run, but managed to obtain additional points on the fine showings of Wilcox, Kreuger, Forsstrom, and Crom- well in their respective specialties, to gross a total of 1834 points to finish behind New York University, the titleholdcr, Pittsburgh University, and Penn State in that order. Nichols and Forsstrom established new Rhode Island records in competing in their favorite events. Bob won the two-mile run in 9 minutes and 26 seconds, and Bill jumped 6 feet three inches in the high Front Row : Tavarozzi, Spooner, R. Nichols, Gosling, Black, McNally, Dixon, Creech, John- son, Wilcox. Second Row: Roche, Wainwright, Mahoney, Tingley, Hunter, Natal, Shurtleff, L.

Third Row: Bagshaw, Forsstrom, Cardin, Forte, Fournier, Dubee, Weisman, Harvey, Bander, Balfour, Romano, Platt, Gudecyauskas, Jewett, Coach Erwin, Kreuger, Coach Tootell. 155 jump. This feat gained him second place. Kreuger gained a third in the shot and a fourth in the discus, while Wilcox took second in the hammer. Forsstrom also finished fifth in the broad jump and Crom- well gained a tie for fifth in the pole vault. The 1941 squad was not regarded as a very strong aggregation at the beginning of activity. However, the skeptics must have underrated the ability of the nation’s top ranking coach to formulate winning com- binations from mediocre talent. Those who follow track closely at State have taken the latter achievement for granted and will become “peeved” if it fails to materialize in any one year. The five dual victories boosted the Tootellmen’s total to 22 consecutive dual wins and made it 29 out of the last 30 meets. Just try and beat it. The 1942 aggregation has lost few of the veterans from last year and will prob- ably prove as formidable as their pre- decessors. Forsstrom and Weisman have left school and newcomers will be counted on to take their places. 156 I.C.4A. Meet, at Randall’s Island, May, 31, 1941 I.C.4A. MEET 1 . New York Univ. 31 6.

KNICKER- BOCKER, mentor of Rhode Island’s second youngest varsity sport, tennis, is rapidly falling into the pathways marked by his older brethren in the coaching field. With limited funds, facilities, and interest as only a few of the obstacles to contend with, the varsity net coach is slowly but steadily moulding a team which will be worthy of carrying the Rhody colors. At present, Coach Knickerbocker has at his disposal six tennis courts which he must share with the women candidates and the predominant “would be” hopefuls that tend to flood the playing surfaces at the wrong times. In 1940 the team won 2 games and lost 5. In 1941 the tennis team was triumphant in 5 matches and defeated in three, a de- cided improvement. Winston Hey is the only member of last year’s team who has gone. Back for another season are: A1 Villatico, Ray Bayha, Ed Allen, Howie French, Richard Sayles, Fred Tew, and Michael Pierik, all Iettermen. In addition, a very capable player from last year’s frosh aggregation in the personage of Don Gamble will no doubt aid the cause. The 1941 netmen chalked up victories over Brown, and Springfield.

Coach Paul F. Cieurzo had only Larry Harrigan around whom to form the nucleus for his golf team. The green hands that filled in the rest of the positions, did a creditable job, but their inexperience, especially, in com- petition against other performers, some of them top-flight, proved too much of a handicap. The divot-diggers opened the season with a loss to Harvard ; then came a victory over Maine University, and a loss to St. Joseph’s, from Philadelphia, and a loss to our intra-state rival, Brown University. Trinity College then tied the Cieurzomen, but they hit the skids again and lost to Boston University; they recovered in time to score a victory over the U. of Connecti- cut, then turned around and lost to the Huskies in the second half of the round robin series. Their final defeat came at the hands of Worcester Tech at Worcester. Although there are no lettermen return- ing for this spring’s competition, some of the players who saw action last year will be returning and the experience gained from last season’s contests should put them in somewhat better stead for the 1942 campaign.

Although, they managed to win no titles, either sec- tional, or national, they did indicate some promise for future use. They won three out of their four meets, losing only to the University of New Hampshire harriers. They defeated Westerly High in the opener by a perfect score, thus equalling the feat of the varsity which performed in like fashion in their initial 1941 start. The score was 15-49. Their next start was the only defeat they suffered, when they were nosed out by the Durham runners, 28-27. The foreign course hampered their efforts, the men getting confused in trying to follow the strange distance. The Ram- lets then went on to lick Northeastern Uni- versity’s representatives by a 23-32 score previewing the result of the varsity tangle between the two schools which was even more lop-sided and won by Rhody. The U-Conn frosh were the last victims bow- ing by an easy score of 18-40. Gordon Davis was the star of the frosh harriers. He led the team to the finish in every meet except the last one, which he missed through illness. He received much assistance from Mannie Furtado, Bob Mc- Elroy and Ken Taylor. Davis and maybe some of the others will be of future use to Coach Tootell. Since he loses three men through graduation this spring, Toot will be able to use any promising newcomers. The Ramlets avenged their defeat by the New Hampshire runners by trimming them in the New Englands. Davis was the in- dividual winner and led his team to triumph. 161 FUESHMAN FOOTBALL C OACH FREI) D. TOOTELL finally realized one of his main ambitions. His 1941 frosh football team completed its season with an unblemished record. The yearlings won four games and tied two in their six-game schedule. It was one of the strongest first-year squads to be seen here in several years and forbade cheerful news for the football campaigns to come. The powerful Ramlets defeated the North- eastern University frosh by a 24-7 margin in their first game, tied Brown University 0-0 in their second encounter, and also tied Providence College 13-13 in their third contest. Then they went on to trample Boston University’s yearlings by a 26-6 margin, wallop the University of Connecti- cut ’45 27-6, and smother the Narragansett Harbor Defenses eleven to the tune of 27-0. In all, the freshman team tallied 117 points while holding their opponents to a meagre 32 point total. Several times in recent years Coach Tootell has had teams that looked like they would end the season with a perfect record, but this is the first time that it really occurred. The backfield performers were especially good displaying a variety of talented passers, kickers, and runners which will aid Bill Beck next season. Ed Dahl, Frank Wright, Teet Topazio, and John Stellitano were the starting backfield quartet. They received plenty of help, however, from other talented runners in Front Row: Miller, Dinwoodic, Weiner, Ferra, Drecof, Zito, Carroccia, Ellis, Rocciolo, Morosco, Hinley, Topazio, Lanphear, Pyne, Stellitano, Wilbour, Stead. Second Row: Beaver, Wright, Friangolo, Antonio, Niemczura, Dahl, Bennett, Aldrich, Brown, Kapowich, Roth, Coach Tootell, Klein, Hanna, Hill. Third Row: Cole, Cressy, Pyne, K rieger, Suddard, Hathaway, Coulahan. 162 On His Way Narducci Evading Tackier Johnnie Carrocia, Jim Lamphear, and Frank Linehan. The linesmen were not overshadowed on this squad boasting such formidable stars as A1 Niemczura at the center slot, Zeus Aldrich, and Russ Bennett at the guard position, and John Miller, and Bob Knight at tackle and end respectively. The passing and kicking of Wright and the running of Dahl were the standout performances for the frosh. The record that these lads compiled is far better than last year’s team could accomplish and shows a distinct improvement in the calibre of play of the freshman elevens. Considerable aid in coaching these young- sters was given Coach Tootell, by Lt. John Moss and Nick Orlando, both ex-under- graduates of Rhode Island State. Their help in teaching these youngsters can be more fully appreciated when one considers that the coaching staff was undermanned, and in addition, Toot was also busy with his championship cross-country team dur- ing the same part of the scholastic year. 1941-42 FRESHMEN FOOTBALL K.

HE 1941-42 Freshman basketball team found the Rhody style of basketball playing much to their liking and although they managed to win only three games out of nine, they did manage to roll up the points and average 65 points per game. The latter feat speaks well for their future use, since that is the only worth of yearling team, to get them in readiness for varsity competition a year hence. The frosh quintet lost twice only to Brown University’s frosh. The latter had one of the better first-year teams in their history. The other losses were to Provi- dence College, University of Connecticut, Northeastern University, and Rogers High School. The latter was an informal con- test for the Newport U.S.O. fund and was not on the regular schedule. They did manage to avenge the defeats at the hands of the Providence College, Connecticut, and Northeast ern quintets, by defeating them in return engagements. One sched- uled contest with the St. Paul’s School of Garden City, Long Island, was cancelled. The club is coached by one of Rhody’s outstanding luminaries of several decades ago, Red Haire. Lack of height and reserves hampered the yearlings no end throughout their ab- breviated campaign. In several of the losing contests, they found themselves out in front but later relinquished the lead after having had one of their key men dis- missed from the game via the foul route. The replacements were far below the regu- lar in playing ability and as a result they lost the game more than not. 164 Harry Donabcdian, ex-star for Aldrich High School, was the outstanding individu- al performer. A good shot with either hand, Don was the play maker of the quintet. He played well throughout the entire cam- paign and led the team offensively with a total of 187 points, a season’s average of nearly 21 points per game. However, he received plenty of aid from his two for- ward mates, Hugh Holburn and Gordon Davis, who tallied 128 and 117 points, respectively. Holburn, a lanky boy, was hampered throughout by a malignant charley-horse in his right leg. The injury was instrumental in reducing his effective- ness offensively and defensively because it forced him to play at a slower pace than he would otherwise be able to do. Davis, on the other hand, looked very promising, and his aggressiveness is sure to stamp him as a likely candidate for the mentor’s varsity hoop squad next season. He dis- played a good front shot and was excellent defensively, constantly harrying his op- ponent and in all covering himself in capable fashion. The defensive duties were cared for by A1 Niemczura, Dick Morse, and Jim Cooney. Niemczura was a tower of strength in the backcourt and often came up the floor to sink some beautiful set shots, more often than not in crucial moments. Morse, was well on his way as one of the best of the yearling squad when he was forced to leave school at the expiration of the first semester. Cooney, his replacement, did a very fine job from there on, and played in the fifth slot for the remainder of the season. It was not the best freshman team that Rhody has had but one of the scrappiest. 1941-1942 Freshman Basketball R.I.

Although his team won only four out of seven games, they man- aged to whitewash the Gilbert School by a 6-0 score and pin a no-hit-no-run verdict on them in doing so. This is one of the rare occurrences in the sport. Boasting of few capable ball players, the club per- formed in a static fashion winning their first three games then turning around and dropping three out of their last four en- counters. The Frosh managed to defeat Provi- dence College, Gilbert School, Brown Uni- versity, and the University of Connecticut, all yearling nines. The scores in these games were: 11-4, 6-0, 3-2, and 7-4, re- spectively. They lost contests to Boston University, by a 5-6 tally in 10 innings, to Providence College by a 6- 1 1 margin, and to Brown University by a 0-4 score. 166 Bob Magee and Ben Ferrazzano were the pitching stars on the frosh. Dave Hedi- son was the hitting star with an average of .345 in 29 times at bat. He also boasted a perfect fielding average. Anthony San Martino and Jim Cole were the other offensive aces with respective averages of .368 and .333 in 19 and 18 times at bat. Jack Doherty was the fielding star handling 84 chances with only two miscues. Vin Grupposo, Les Stauff, and Mitchell Merol- lo were other regulars on the club. Don Dw ' yer, the regular centerfielder also boast- ed a perfect fielding percentage, and batted well in the pinches. Magee was the twirler of the 6-0 no-hit-no-run game against the Zam Belts One Gilbert School. He together with Hedison and Dwyer will probably see multiple ser- vice with the varsity this spring.

Their meets may not have brought about as much interest, but they did produce similarly large scores. Last spring, however, they finally lost a meet. It was a triangular meet, not a dual meet. Their conquerors were in the person of the two best scholastic track and field teams in the State. Nevertheless, Coach Tootell has developed some capable talent which he feels sure will perform to satis- faction come this spring. In their first meet with Westerly High, the Ramlets scored 119 2 points out of a possible 126. But in the next meet, they Bill Allen, Star Frosh Trackman 168 Link Makes His Bid repeat the performance of their scholastic brothers, but were not as successful. In- stead, they absorbed a sound trouncing with Rhody gaining a substantial victory with a total of 92 points, while the best the visitors could do was to garner 62 points between them, 37 for La Salle, and 25 for Central. The Ramlets went on to trip the University of Connecticut frosh by a 97-38 margin and ended their season with a 77-49 shellacking of Brown Uni- versity’s first-year men. One of the outstanding yearling track- men in Rhody history competed for the Kingstonian newcomers. Bill Allan, a star in the hurdle and dash races, was the pivot- ing factor in the Ramlet’s performances. He established an all-time individual record for one season, either varsity or frosh, by compiling the amazing total of 79J4 points in the 5 meets he competed in. Among his achievements, he numbered 14 first places, two seconds, one third, one tie for third, and one fourth. He is one of the sure bets for the varsity this spring and comes at an opportune moment when hurdlers are scarce in the Rhody camp.

INTRAMURAL BASEBALL Last spring P.I.K. easily clinched the Intramural Baseball championship by roll- ing over Alpha Tau Gamma in both games of a two out of three series in the finals. Dave Lownds, P.I.K. twirling artist and best individual player, pitched both championship games. He has the distinc- tion of being undefeated for the entire season besides pitching two no-hit, no-run games. Roland Lavalee also contributed some excellent mound performances while twirling for P.I.K. He pitched one no- hitter and several low-hit games. Effective hitting by Ed Maher, Bill Smith, and Jim Moreau added to their skill and won the pennant for them. 173 WOMEN ' S ATHLETICS Clarkin, Benhcimer, Richmond, D’Arcv, Shanley, Platt. Up to the fall of 1934, Mrs. Winifred Keaney and Miss Jo Less controlled the policies and procedures of the W. A. A. and operated the organization by a con- stitution drawn up by them. In this set-up arrangements and provisions were made for the offering of points for each sport, intramural, class and varsity, participated in by each co-ed. In 1934 it became neces- sary to revamp the constitution because the sports program changed appreciably. Roosevelt Hall, constructed on the women’s track layout, removed the possi- bilities of a track team; horses at the Kingston stables were taken to Narragan- sett Pier, and riding was eliminated from the program; girls were not able to secure enough points in swimming; lack of enough ice during the winter months pre- vented point accumulation for winter sports; interest in hiking lagged. With in- creased enrollment, the advent of men’s varsity tennis, and too few tennis courts to accommodate the tennis inter-class or intramural program, points were difficult to acquire for tennis. Thus the sports ac- tivities which provided points for accumu- lation since 1922 were replaced by varsity hockey, basketball, and tennis. Therefore, Vera Rock, president of Women’s Athletic Association in 1934 submitted with Miss Jo Lees and Helen Boardman, a new system of athletic awards whereby a girl might earn a sweater through participation for two years on one varsity team. Also since the spring of 1935, the W. A. A. sponsor an annual banquet at which awards are formally presented and outstanding luminaries from other years renew old times. This year the Rhody W. A. A. became a member of the American Federation of College Women. Ruth Whitaker, Virginia Spencer, Dorothy Nicholson and Kay Browning, freshman representative to W. A. A. attended the conference at Wellesly College. In 1931, Miss Jo Lees, assistant to Mrs. Keaney then and late head of the women’s physical education department, organized the first women’s varsity hockey team. The youngest of the Ramlettes intercollegiate sports is tennis. The first match was played Annie Bristow Bobby Edmonds in 1935 and since then great advances have been made toward providing New York and Connecticut trips. Thus hockey, basketball, tennis are the varsity sports along with the rifle team which are offered for the co-ed athlete. This year, Miss Lillian Wellner, the new head of the co-ed physical education de- partment, has encouraged an enlarged folk dancing and intra-mural program. Also this year for the first time, the Pembroke College speed-ball team met our sopho- more speed-ball class in a minor sport competition. As in other years, the sopho- more manager of basketball, Miss Ruth Whitaker, was in charge of the intra-mural Betty Lincoln basketball program with the members of the coaching classes refereeing and acting as umpires. Single and double tourna- ments in ping-pong and badminton were also carried on.

Stick work, routine plays and scrimmages were worked out intensively during Freshman Week and during the pre-school period. Practices are now held on the hockey field designated for that pur pose. Since 1931, hockey has been played on various fields: On the quadrangle with the pucksters dodging the walks and the students, on- lookers and behind Edwards Hall. Finally in 1935, the area in front of Green Hall was designated as the regular hockey field. Each year the team follows a precedent started in 1932 to play its first game with the Alumnae and its last game with the football team in a Tarzan-Amazon contest. This year the Ramlettes faced the strongest and best hockey teams in the east especially in its advance to Philadelphia where it met Ursinus and Drexel Institute. At these schools, the Ramlettes were defeated, 12-2 and 5-2, respectively, in hard fought, but futile battles. To compensate for the Front Row.

As the years of varsity basketball advanced, the schedules became more quite complete and full. In its em- bryonic stage, they did not venture too far away from home. Each following year there was a decided increase in the number of games played, the number of players reporting for practice and the total number of points scored were also increased. It was also found necessary to have two schedules, a varsity schedule and one for the junior varsity. That practice was not carried out this year however. This year’s season passed comparatively unsuccessfully with the varsity winning four and losing five of its games. The junior varsity played two games with Posse and broke out even, with one win and one loss. High scorers this year were Nancy Car- penter and Janey Barlow ' . Co-captain Mary Clarkin was missed in the starting line-up, since she was unable to participate in sports because of illness. Mary D’Arcy and Annie Bristow ' can be considered as two steady and stalwart guards who played this season. 178 Coach Lillian Wellner SCHEDULE - 1942 R. 1.

A great deal of progress has been made in the past twenty years of women’s sports towards the promotion of friendship, ad- miration and respect among the co-eds themselves and toward acquiring these qualities from the various institutions with which they have participated. The begin- nings of a co-ed sports program at Rhode Island State College embodied track, basketball, tennis, soccer, folk dancing and coaching theory under the direction of Mrs. Frank W. Keaney. The first varsity basketball game, and the first game of any varsity series was played at the University of Connecticut in 1922 where the hoopsters were victors by one point. During the past decade the co-eds have extended their varsity trips in major sports to Philadelphia and New York. Co-ed athletics have expanded to an intensive varsity and intra-mural pro- gram with the opportunity of participation opened to each and every girl who enters Rhode Island State College. Due to the accelerated program, intra-mural sports have been enlarged. 182 Florence Hornstein Ruth Whitaker Ruth Philips Clarke 183 (Ill i; A N I Z T I (I 184 185 POLYGON Front Row: Jewett, Johnstone, Cowell, Kenney.

This organiz- ation has done a great deal to establish and retain a spirit of cooperative effort between the numerous fraternities on campus. The most important function of the organization is to oversee the rushing campaigns; rules are formulated and enforced by this body in relation to rushing. Be- sides determining and regulating rushing rules the Polygon settles disputes between the fraternities and acts as an intermediary be- tween the college and the fraterni- ties. The membership of the Polygon consists of two representatives from each fraternity and three faculty advisors. In order that the organization remain impartial, officers are elected by a rotation system and an entirely new set presides each year. The Polygon is the voice of the fraternities. 187 mill IOTA KAPPA OFFICERS President Edmund D. Maher Vice-President David E. Lownds Secretary Walter Rooney Treasurer William P.

Sigma Delta’s petition for a charter was granted by Theta Chi fraternity on March 18, 191 1. 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 Vital Statistics Founded at Rhode Island 1909 Charter Membership — 16 Total Membership — 390 Hall; in the fall of 1910 the Church House; and in 1921 moved to its present location.

In 1936, the fraternity celebrated its 25th anniversary of national affiliation with the publication of a book that reviewed its history. Theta Chi was destroyed by fire in 1937, but by 1938 the Theta Chis once again took possession of one of the finest buildings associated with the college. 190 FRATRES IN FACULTATE Dr. Harold W.

From the beginning, Dr. John Barlow ' has been associated with the fra- ternity and much can be credited to his interest and efforts. Beta Phi built its second home in 1913. This building was the first to be built as a fraternity house at Rhode Island State. In 1931, this house being too small, plans were made and by 1932 the present house was finished and occupied. This house is a tribute to the effort, work, and sacrifices of the brothers who made possible this beautiful home.

The following year with increased membership the group secured quarters in the old Lambda Chi Alpha house. As the chapter prospered the prospect of nationalization became an im- portant factor of policy. Offers from many nationals were considered and finally, in April, 1928 it was decided to affiliate with Alpha Epsilon Pi. At the time of the in- duction Dr. Howard Edwards was initiated as an honorary brother, the first faculty member in the national fraternity. It was with his aid that the present site of the chapter 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 ob- served 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 activities of the college. 200 FRATRES IN FACULTATE Dr. Ralph K.

Members are selected at the end of their Sophomore year by their respective sorority sisters and serve on the Council during their Junior and Senior years. Officers are active for one year only 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 Freshman girls, which is followed by the preparation of freshman date books, to systematize the calendar of rush parties. Pan- Hellenic Council supervises rush- ing itself, and the final presenta- tion of bids. Meetings of the Council are held every other week, during which time inter-sorority relations are discussed and Greek letter problems attacked. Pan-Hellenic holds an annual ball in March, usually in Roosevelt Hall. The proceeds of this dance are used for scholarships each fall, which are presented to the girl in each class who attains the highest scholastic record of the previous year. The Pan-Hellenic shield is awarded at the same time to the Sophomore girl who made the highest record during the first semester of her Freshman year. In 1941 this was awarded to Darthea Bacon. The two scholarship awards were made to Marjorie Cowan and Darthea Bacon. 213 SIGMA KAPPA OFFICERS President Barbara Emery Vice-President Harriet McOsgar Secretary Miriam Hyland Treasurer Shirley Peters Sigma Kappa, the first sorority on Rhode Island State College’s campus, was established as the local sorority, Sigma Tau Delta in 1914.

It was opened in 1937, and called the Brick Dormitory until its formal dedi- cation ceremony on October 4, 1938, with Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt present. Many imposing social functions have been held in the beautiful Great Room of the dormitory, including the faculty re- ception for Dr. Woodward last fall; the Women’s Student Government tea for our new president, and the tea given by the Board of Trustees in honor of Dr. Wood- ward, to which many state dignitaries were invited. In addition each year the Pan- Hellenic Ball is held in Eleanor Roosevelt Hall. Nu Alpha has a chapter room in this building, and Women’s Student Gov- ernment also has its room here. Girls living in the dormitory are mem- bers of the association, and membership is not restricted. The association entered into scholarship competition with sorori- ties and the Phacacians in the fall of 1938. 226 UNDERGRADUATE MEMBERS Ruth Clark ' 0 Muriel Deziel Marilyn Bensois Evelyn Berlow Gladys Caswell CLASS OF 1942 Mary DAquanno Florence Ho Jean-Marie Davis Renee Kahn CLASS OF 1943 Beatrice St. Germain Jane Votta Mary Macari Ann MoRtARTt Jesse Sn Nathalie Williams Marjorie Wyllie fro " ' — ass? v« ' : ' cS:tn hiul[r ' K — • “• H SiU ™ Burt - Gu “’ pu,t - F ' " k FmR - 227 TAVERN HALL Front Row.

Organized a year ago by a group of interested students and faculty members under the sponsorship of the Sachems, the Student Senate fills a long-felt need on the campus. Its chief function is to serve as the student governing body, but it also pro- vides a medium through which direct and close contact can be maintained between the students, the faculty, and the adminis- tration. The Senate is, in addition, the only campus organization which is truly repre- sentative of the entire student body. At the beginning of its second year, the foundations having been solidly laid, and the inevitable preliminary adjustments having been made, the Senate is prepared to assume ever-increasing responsibilities. But, however important the successful operation of the Senate may become to the college, it will be of still more vital significance to the nation because of its democratic ideals and system. 232 SACHEMS Front Row: Second Row: Tingley, Johnstone, A. Kopech, Richmond, Shanley, Hornstcin, Kershaw, Anderson, Masterson. Modzelewski, Friedman, Fine, Withe, Carpenter. OFFICERS Moderator Arnold Anderson Secretary Betty N. Richmond Treasurer Isadore Fine The Sachems is an honorary organiz- ation made up of fifteen Seniors, eleven men and four women, and three faculty advisors. In May of their Junior year, these students are tapped for membership on the basis of their participation in cam- pus 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 their program has been a busy one in efficiently enforcing Freshman rules under the supervision of the Vigi- lantes, in conducting class elections, run- ning the Mayorality campaign and spon- FACULTY ADVISORS Professor Donald E. Stearns Dr. Kenneth E. Wright Dr. Daniel T homas soring campus dances. The Sachems have also established an honor roll of Rhode Island men who have joined the services and endeavored in many ways to maintain the traditions of Rhode Island State College. From the Sachems group, committees have been appointed to work out solutions of various campus problems. A student government association has been formed with their cooperation, to act as a connect- ing link between students and faculty members in discussing campus difficulties. The members of the Sachems are dis- tinguished by their blue jackets, with the Indian Head emblem on the pocket. 233 WOMEN ' S STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOC Front Row. E.

OFFICERS President Miriam Shanley Vice-President Nancy Carpenter Secretary-Treasurer Lillian Baker The Women’s Student Government As- sociation is composed of all the women students in the college. It is the only women’s student governing body, and was established to cooperate with the adminis- tration in making and enforcing rules of co-ed conduct. The Student Council of W.S.G.A. is composed of annually elected officers, representatives from the various classes and women’s organizations and Presidents of the women’s dormitories. The Council is directly concerned with the enforcement of rules regulating co-ed conduct; violat- ors of rules are brought before this Council of fifteen for hearing, trial and punishment at its bi-monthly meetings. W.S.G.A. sponsors a fall tea to acquaint Freshman women with the upperclass girls, women faculty and wives of the men faculty members. The Association sponsors an organization of Junior Counsellors who FACULTY ADVISOR Dean Amy M. Gilbert act as guides to Freshman girls and con- duct Freshman Stunt Night. In the future this organization strengthened this year, will be responsible for the enforcement of the Sachem’s rules regarding Freshman women. W.S.G.A. supervises, also, the traditional May Day activities on campus. At this time Junior and Senior girls from high schools in Rhode Island are invited to cele- brate the crowning of Rhode Island’s May Queen and to visit the women’s houses and dormitories. Each year the association has sent two of its officers to the New England confer- ence of student government representatives from various eastern colleges. This prac- tice of teaching and instruction for officers helps the organization to improve its func- tions in governing and controlling the students with a minimum of control from the faculty. 234 PHI KAPPA PHI Front Row : Boule, Richmond, Dr. Hunter, Burt, Shusman.

With the decla- ration of war, most of the available subjects for debate and discussion had to be discarded. Also, some colleges dis- continued inter-collegiate debating. In spite of these handicaps, the Portia Club had both an active and a successful year. There were a few home debates, and three long trips. The most outstand- ing trip of the year was made to Jackson College and Dartmouth College, in De- cember. Besides debating and participating in panel discussions, members of the Portia Club also took active parts in the Model Congress and debate receptions. Professor George E. Brooks, who has been the club’s advisor since he came to the campus, was his usual invaluable self. 247 WRANGLERS OFFICERS President Milton H. Searle First Vice-President, Arnold S.

Annually, they participate in intercollegiate debates with colleges in New England, New York, and in the South. Members of the Wranglers must first pass the tests of intra-club debates before being initiated into the debating society. The debating season is brought to a close each year with the Cup debate. 248 ENGINEERING COUNCIL OFFICERS President Phillip Duffy Secretary Richard Houghton Treasurer Dexter Picozzi FACULTY ADVISOR Dean Royal L. Wales The Engineering Council of Rhode Island State College was organized in 1938. This group is made up of two mem- bers from each of the four engineering 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 a view toward stimulating improvement of engi- neering as a whole. The council sponsors a smoker and banquet each year. Two years ago 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 ap- paratus as a background and has been received with such enthusiasm by the student body that it has developed into a popular annual affair.

It was founded in 1937. Not for long did it remain a local, for on De- cember 15, 1938, Dr. M. E. Molstead of Yale University, Secretary of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, installed the Rhode Island chapter as a member of the national student organization. Rhode Island followed Yale, M.I.T., and North- eastern in its affiliation with the Institute. Although it is still fairly young, the Chemical Engineering Society has lost little time in stimulating professional inter- est among its members in the wide field of chemical engineering. This has been accomplished through periodic conferences and field trips to many industrial plants. Front Row: Shusinan, Bloom, Parnigoni, Dr. Crawford, Carter, Burkhardt, Horowitz.

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 meetings, those students who have the desire to develop into the designers of bridges, parkways, buildings and dams of tomorrow, have the opportunity to become better acquainted with professional engi- neers, their work, and practices. Those who attend the periodic meetings of the society hear lectures by men with first- hand information in the field of engineer- ing. Movies, discussion, 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. 251 AMERICAN INST.

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 so- ciety is the promotion of student interest by encouraging full participation at the regular meetings of the society, by arrang- ing field trips that will be beneficial to the members, and by the entertainment of guest speakers, usually men who are ex- perienced and prominent in the field of electrical engineering. The society has been instrumental in fostering friendship among the different students and classes in electrical engineering and has provided contacts with men in this field on the outside. 252 AMERICAN SOC. OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS OFFICERS President Richard Houghton Secretary.. Vice-President Robert Osborne Treasurer. FACULTY ADVISOR Prof. E. L. Carpenter .Frank Nascenzi .. .Dexter Picozzi The second oldest of the engineering societies at Rhode Island State College was founded in 1904 as the Mechanical Engineering Society. Since that time it has developed into the largest of the engi- neering societies. This group fosters in- terest in the 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 affiliation 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 engineer- ing. 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.

OFFICERS President Raymond Page Vice-President Abraham Seigelman The Radio Club was organized several years ago in order to be of assistance to those members who wish to pass the government’s tests for licenses ; at the same time the club could enable licensed mem- bers to continue their radio work. In 1938 the club’s importance was realized when it handled radio traffic for South County during the hurricane of that year. The club keeps daily schedules with New England stations as well as with other western and southern stations. The Rhode Island Radio Club belongs to the Rho Epsilon Fraternity which is a national fraternity for amateur radio clubs in colleges. Recently the club was very instrumental in organizing and starting on its way the present Radio Network. 256 R. I. S. C. NETWORK PERSONNEL General Manager Raymond Paige Program Manager Robert Landry Business Manager William Bloom Technical Manager Abe Siegalman Control Manager Quentin Frazier FACULTY ADVISOR Professor Wesley B. Hall Through the efforts of the students of R.I.S.C., the Network became a reality in March, 1940. A charter member of the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, the Rhode Island State College Network, after months of experimenting and actual oper- ation, has become a most efficient college broadcasting system. The control room and studios are lo- cated in Edward’s Hall with transmission lines leading to all dormitories and houses. The studios were originally designed as music rooms and are therefore semi- soundproof. The present operating fre- quency is about 575 kc, but with the FCC changing the alloted broadcasting frequen- cies, a better frequency may be chosen.

Masterson The Newman Club of Rhode Island State College is a member of the National Newman Club Federation whose aim is to foster Catholic thought and culture. An intensive program of discussion on religious and ethical topic, is conducted as well as a varied social program. The outstanding feature of the club’s activities is the three-day Spiritual Retreat conducted annually. The students ap- preciate the opportunity offered and show their appreciation by their excellent at- tendance. A Communion Breakfast is held each year in the spring. Corresponding Secretary, Margaret A. Gallogly Social Chairman Robert McCabe Chaplain Rev. Paul Lloyd As part of its social program the club conducts a dance annually during Fresh- man week. The Freshman officers respond to this invitation with a social of some sort later in the year. Outside lecturers are brought on cam- pus for the open meetings of the club. This year, in place of regular business meetings, the club has sponsored a series of studies of the Christian Apologetics, conducted by Reverend Paul Lloyd. As Chaplain, Reverend Lloyd has been the club’s inspiration for continual advance- ment, and is largely responsible for its successful program of activity. Front Row: Ballirano, Donlon, T.

Aldrich Secretary Ruth E. Brown Vice-President Betty J. Martin Treasurer Vernon A. Harvey FACULTY ADVISOR Rev. Roy J. Schramm The Student Fellowship, an organiz- ation of young people, is sponsored by the village church and is open to all college students. Its meetings are held each Sun- day evening, offering social and education- al entertainment to all who gather at the church house. The first meeting of the year is usually an informal party for the purpose of getting acquainted with the freshmen. Other meetings which follow are made interesting by speakers who are invited to talk on social, moral and general topics of interest to people of college age. Sometimes the speakers are college pro- fessors, well known lecturers or writers. Panel discussions have been held in the past and have proved most successful and enlightening to those who participated. Outdoor meetings are held occasionally. One of the most outstanding meetings held this year was one at which a trio of travel- ing collegians, one of each of the three sects, a Protestant, a Catholic and a Jew, spoke and conducted an informal discus- sion. Program arrangement is placed in the hands of a Cabinet of able representa- tives from houses and dormitories on the campus, who are ever alert to the collegi- ate interest. Under the advisorship of Rev. Schramm, the Student Fellowship has done much toward getting students together informal- ly and in fostering friendly relationships between them. 259 FOREIGN RELATIONS CLIIR Front Row : Wood, Prof. Jones, Prof. Rockafcllow, Dr. Thomas, Tew Second Row: Cute, Masterson, Dean Gilbert, Nunes, Cordin.

This year the organization has come of age and at the same time has been awarded a new faculty advisor, Dr. Colby Lewis. An able director and coach. Dr. Lewis has given guidance and aid of many kinds to the organization and during his first year of association, he has instigated new improvements for better dramatic productions and more sound organization. On Friday, December 5th, Phi Delta demonstrated three kinds of comedy by presenting as a trio of Freshman plays, E. P. Conkle’s, “Sparkin’’, Thornton Wild- er’s, “The Happy Journey” and Arkady Averchenko’s, “The Power of Fate”. Pre- sentation of the Freshman plays has been an annual fall acitivity of the club. The outstanding feature of the club’s activities until last year, had been the production, each each spring, of a musical Revue. This was, traditionally an all- Rhode Island, all-student production. The costumes, dance-routines, make-up lighting, scenery, staging, writing of the script and music were all handled by the students of Rhode Island State College, under the direction of Phi Delta members. In 1941, the year’s full-length production however, was not a musical comedy, but a presentation of Oliver Goldsmith’s 18th century comedy, “She Stoops To Con- quer”. As the Grist goes to press, the club’s plans are undecided as to the 1942 major production which is still unnamed and uncast. Through membership in Phi Delta and participation in its activities, students are given an opportunity to develop initiative and ability. In addition to acting there is open to members activity in other lines, such as make-up designing, music, lighting and other back-stage performances. Mem- bership in Phi Delta which this year totals near sixty, is acquired only through par- ticipation in Freshman plays or work be- hind the scenes.

The organiz- ation was founded at the University of Wisconsin in 1904 with the idea that such a society would be vital in developing and fostering the ideals and practices of mili- tary 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. This year Miss Muriel Dickinson of Chi Omega Sorority was selected Co-ed Colonel of the Rhode Island Scabbard and Blade. 271 272 MAY DAY FESTIVITIES 1892 273 THE AGGIE KAWL COMMITTEE Chairman Paul Hines Music Decorations John Simeone Patrons Francis E. McVay Tickets Robert Simpson Refreshments David Lownds Publicity Richard Peck Say, I hear tell by the papers here thet them Rhode Island Aggies held their big annual Bawl last October 11th. And lookit these here candydates in the evenin’s beauty contest. There’s Claire Callahan, Janet Joyce, Helen Oakland, Barbara O’Neil, Winnie Silvermann, Harriet Watts, and Florence Wynn, with the queen her- self, Betty Lincoln a’ headin the whole bunch, settin on the throne all dolled up in wagon wheels, pumpkins and corn and suchlike. Right smart looking bunch of beauties, ain’t they? Wisht I could ha been thet Happy Hines standin there pre- sentin thet there crown! 274 Queen Candidates: Barbara ’Course they had the reglar festive deco- rations with animuls, calves, rabbits, and goats, and a ceiling all covered over with fall leaves and whatnot; John Simeone saw to that. Looks as if Dick Peck’s pub- licity attracted quite a crowd, don’t it? Bob Simpson had the tickets to look after. The paper says here thet the orchestry, that is Sam Donohue and the boys, which John Beck hired, did up the music for the evenin, right proud. Say, thet musta been O’Neill and Helen Oakland a whale of a good time! They oughta pin the blue ribbon onto the rest of the com- mitty for puttin on sech a first prize show fer 1942. There was Francis McVay, who had charge of the patrons, and David Lownds who put on the refreshments, and Arthur Holsworth, headin the floor com- mitty. As one Aggie to another, doncha wish you’da been up to Lippitt Hall thet night to see the fun? There’s no use talkin, we farmers is just got to modernize! Betty Lincoln and Harriett Watts 275 SOPH HUP In a decorative nautical setting, the Soph Hop, first formal dance of the year, was successfully presented in Rodman Hall on November 10, 1941. The colored spot lights shone on the largest gathering this outstanding event has ever occasioned. More than two hundred couples danced gaily to the unusual and versatile orches- trations of the nation’s newest top-notch band. Hal McIntyre, a protege of Glen Miller and his band, came to us after completing a sensational engagement at the Glen Island Casino. Featured by Hal himself, one of the best sax players in the country, and his two capable vocalists, Penny Parker and Carl Denny, the band gave a smooth and diversified performance that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. As a fitting climax to the dance of the class of 1944, Mary Lightbody, representa- tive of Sigma Kappa, was selected queen of the sophomore class by a trio of judges consisting of : Coach William Beck, vocal- ist Carl Denny, and Hal McIntyre. Mary Lightbody and Her Court 276 SLIDE IUILE STIUIT COMMITTEE Chairman Philip Duffy Decorations Dexter Picozzi Richard Houghton Tickets Robert Gammons Music Edward Sweeney Patrons Tevis Shusman Refreshments Noel McKinnon Programs Robert Carter The fourth annual Slide Rule Strut was held on January 30, 1942 in Lippitt Hall. Through the earnest efforts of Phillip Duffy, general chairman, and his commit- tee the dance was a brilliant success. Amid the surroundings of working models of engineering accomplishments, a gay crowd enjoyed the pleasing rhythms of Billy Carlin and his orchestra. Each couple attending the dance was awarded a cash prize of P dollars. P was determined by a mathematical relation which varies directly with the “coefficient of affectance,” whose significance was de- termined by a newly designed “Affectance Meter.” In contrast with past years, the candi- dates for Queen were selected from co-eds attending the dance. During the evening Chairman Duffy and Queen Jessie Small five candidates were selected ; then the final decision was made, and Miss Jessie Small was crowned Queen of Engineers. 277 MIUTAHY HALL Muriel Dickinson and Pres Woodward In an atmosphere of war activity, the Military Ball surpassed former ones in decorations and impressive ceremony. The Ball was held on Friday evening, February 20, 1942 in Rodman Hall. The Ball is an annual one held yearly prior to Washing- ton’s Birthday by the Scabbard and Blade, National Honorary Military Society. The motif of the dance, as might be expected, was military. This year it seemed especially appropriate with the United States at war. An archway of red, white, and blue streamers decorated the entrance to the dance, and the gymnasium itself was tranforrned into a beautiful ballroom by the use of bunting, varicolored lights, and American Eagles. The numerous uni- forms of the cadet officers and students, the colorful dress uniforms of the guests and the returning alumni, who are once again in the Nation’s service, increased the mili- tary atmosphere. After dancing to the music of Dick Rogers and his orchestra and listening to several of the clever arrangements and specialty numbers, the military program began. Silence reigned ; first came the im- pressive ceremony of the Senior Cadet Officers, and then the sabre arch by the Juniors. All this heralded the unveiling of the new honorary co-ed. Stepping out Jeanc Yare and Co-ed Colonel Ruth Oldrid 278 Candidates Marie Ballirano and Anne Palow of the darkness with a sole spotlight shining on her came Muriel Dickinson, one of the prettiest Co-Ed Colonels ever selected. The manner of selection of the Colonel is very secretive. Five candidates for the honor were selected by the Scabbard and Blade Members. During the week pre- ceding the dance, students enrolled in the military courses at college voted. The new Co-Ed Colonel was presented to the public by her predecessor and her title was be- stowed upon her by Dr. Carl R. Wood- ward, president of the college. Junior Cadet Officers were then tapped and presented for membership in the Honorary Military Society. Perhaps the most inspiring moment of the evening oc- curred when with the dimming of lights, the flick of sabres, the flag was unfurled while the orchestra played the Star Spangled Banner. To Albert Evans, general chairman, and his committee, goes a lot of credit for making the forty-sixth annual Military Ball on the campus of Rhode Island State College the most successful one ever held. 279 lllMim N1(IM The night of May 5, 1941, belonged to the Junior class. In a haze of soft colors and beautiful surroundings, to the ac- companiment of music from an outstand- ing band, class members and guests danced away an evening exclusively theirs. The colors were lent by the gowns of the co-eds and the blossom theme of the decorations; the beautiful surroundings were the Biltmore Ballroom and its attrac- tive foyer; and the outstanding band was Tony Pastor, whose theme song “Blossoms” was the inspiration for the Ballroom’s festive attire. A few sharp notes of reality penetrated the dreamy quality of the evening, how- ever the over energetic conga enthusi- ast who fell with true enthusiasm; the lovely blond vocalist who had a few of the girls a bit apprehensive about their respec- tive escorts; and the photographer who punctured the nicest moments with glaring flashlight bulbs. Two lines w ' cre formed during the even- ing - a wieldy, winding conga line, and one that formed in front of the elevators during intermission. The fortunate ones in the latter congregation were the girls with football players for e scorts. Those receiving included : Lieutenant Colonel and Mrs. C. G. MacLeod, Dr. and Mrs. John Barlow, Miss Josephine T. Lees 280 and guest, Dr. and Mrs. Harold W. Brown- ing, Dr and Mrs. Vernon I. Cheadle, Lieutenant Colonel and Mrs. Frank U. Greer, and Professor and Mrs. Herbert Hofford. After the many couples, approxi- mately 275 had been formally introduced to the patrons and patronesses, dancing pro- ceeded in full swing to such favorites as the novel “Parradille Joe” and “Java Jive”, superbly executed by a top-notch band, with Maetro Pastor continuously and graciously autographing the various sundry articles offered him by the throng around the bandstand The climax of the evening came when the seven lovely candidates for the coveted title of “Prom Queen” danced before the judges and spectators, resulting in the crowning of class vice-president Marv Clarkin as Queen of the 1941 Junior Prom. The success of the dance was due largely to the untiring efforts of the Prom Com- mittee, composed of : Arnold Anderson, chairman; Charles Hazard, orchestra; Robert Gammons, tickets; Barbara O’Neil, patrons; John Joyce and Donald John stone, Publicity; Lester Snider and Ray- mond Giordano, decorations; and Richard Forte, programs. They made of our most important Junior class function one that we will not easily forget. And incidentally, it was the only financially successful Junior Prom held by a State class, to our knowledge. 281 282 ON THE RHODY SPECIAL Warming Up for Their Evening’s Work 283 » BEFORE Dave Hedison, George Martin, Frank Cromwell AFTER Rutledge and Cure Enjoying Victory Shower 284 SIGNS OF VICTORY Rhody ' s Victory Dance in the Abbey Ballroom President and Mrs. Woodward and Family 285 TIS A WEARY ROAD HOJVIE 286 287 CLASS VOTE Betty Richmond Most Brilliant VOTED BY THE ENTIRE CLASS CO-EDS Most Beautiful Most Respected Best Dressed Most Glamourous Most Collegiate Most Dependable Best All-Around Best Athlete Most Popular Most Brilliant Most Likely to Succeed Wittit st Biggest Campus Politician Biggest Drag with the Faculty.

This is your sports announcer, Fred O’Connor, speaking. It’s November 11, 1962 and we’re on the air coast-to-coast, to broadcast the 22nd Annual Rhode Island State College Carnival from Keaney Stadium in Kingston, Rhode Island. The Stadium was named for Coach Keaney who you know is now serving on the Advisory Board of Athletics at Columbia University. This year’s carnival promises to be one of Rhody’s best, according to our sponsors, Giordano, Goldstein and Golu- bowski, makers of that fine “Three G’s Gingerale”, “the ale that tells the tale.” The major attraction at Kingston today is to be this fiery clash between the un- beaten, and unscored-upon Rams and plucky neighbors from Connecticut Uni- versity who were the 1961 All-New Eng- land champs. Rhody’s out to grab that title today. But it’s ten minutes to game time, so we’ll just take a minute to give you listeners a bird’s-eye view of the mam- moth crowd gathered here. It’s the Twen- tieth Anniversary of the Class of ’42, and the stadium is infested with the loyal sons who have come back to cheer the Alma Mater to victory. Wait a minute! What do I see at the far end of the stadium? No, it’s not the score board, it’s Maurie Flynn! He’s watching the beauty contest being staged for the Carnival guests by the Sanik Super Markets. The winner, I hear, is to receive a free manicure at Madame Oldrid’s Beauty Salon, newly opened on North Road, across the street from the Rutledge Lubritorium, Gasoline Station and Park- ing Lot. And whom do I see as judges in the contest, but five of my Rhody class- mates of ’42, McKeon, Kershaw, D’Avan- zo, Fine, and Belsey. The R.O.T.C., under the direction of Colonel Louis Hampton and Major Joe Sullivan, has just taken its place on the 20 yard line, and here come Dr. and Mrs. Richard Knight, Mr. and Mrs. Laboisson- niere, and the Ryans, along with Elaine and Dick Cotter who have just come from a tea at Barbara and Fred Hancock’s new home at the army post on Point Judith, where Fred has recently been made Gen- eral. The Cotters are doing very well with their Florist shop in North Kingstown. The Carnival Committee has asked me to remind you of the dance being held in the Gymnasium this evening. You are all invited to attend and hear the music of Sam Barker and his band, featuring Rosalie Burt, blues vocalist, and the Four Music Makers quartette, Benson, Gammons, Johnson and McKenna. Oops! One of the fair spectators — it’s Betty Hyde — has just fainted at the sight of “Al” and Marilyn Crandall who have appeared, bringing their family of six girls, who are ardent football fans, and haven’t missed a game this year. Dr. T. J. Master- son is running to her assistance with black bag in hand, but it is all right folks, for Ruth Hannah has already brought her to with First Aid treatment. 290 The boys have just come on the field now, followed by their coach, Eddy Maher, who is making a record for himself in the sports world. His assistants, Obradovich, Tingley, and Romano are giving the play- ers their last minute instructions. Also on the bench is “Doc” Friedman and his as- sistant Myrtle Meyer, to sec that no harm comes to the players. I hear a fanfare of trumpets, for who has just appeared but Rhode Island’s new representative to U. S. Senate, Morton Goldman, and his business managers, the Kopechs. Misses McCrudden, Potts, Goff, and Easterbrooks, his honor’s secretarial staff, are following in his wake. Lester Snider, his chauffeur, is talking to the new Dean of Women, Dr. Shirley Peters, and telling her of their trip over the new Provi- dence to Wakefield Highway, just com- pleted by engineers, Stella, Piozzi, and Miska, former Rhodv graduates. Why, there are all sorts of notables in the crowd today! There comes Mae Burt, the writer of this year’s best seller “The Moon Was My Upcoming”, with her proteges Vici Lazarek, and Dorothy Barber, and the boys who print their books, Wilson, Pickett, McGarry and Sons. My colleague report- ers, Dick Peck, Paul Pignolet and Bob Davis, are all here to catch the highlights of today’s game for tomorrow’s news. Photographers Fuyat, Scigelman and Gudeczauskas, headed by the Journal New’s ace cameraman, George Buivid, are covering the action of the game for the theatre fans. And there is that female camera-shark, O’Neil, snapping pictures of Meola, Curtin, Clarkin and Farnworth for use in the Stylish Women’s Wear maga- zine which she and Marguerite Quinn are publishing. Everyone is looking aloft now at the planes which are flying overhead in salute to the day. It is probably McCaskey, Sweet, Evans and Hazard, who will take you up in their private planes for a slight charge. I see Drs. Cubler and Cardillo eyeing the possibilities of an accident, while Ruth Crandall, Renee Kahn, and Pearl McDonnell admire the perfect formation and anxiously await their sons’ display on the field in the line-up for today’s game. Thomas Matthews and Stutz Modzelew- ski look a little nervous too, for their sons are co-captains of the Rams this year. Also among the notables we sec Betty Moore, art critic, Wilton Sunn who writes the Philosophy Corner for the N. Y. Ga- zette, and Richard Tobin, who has just discovered a new formula for crystallizing Vitamins A, T, and G. He and his as- sistants, Perry, Phillips, Thomson, Erhardt, and Brown are working on a new process in which they plan to utilize the Rhode Island clam shell chemically. Working in conjunction with them are researchists, Hankins, Sayles, Moreau and Robert. Martha Corrigan and Josephine Mc- Mahon have willingly offered themselves as human guinea pigs in the experiment. The fleet must be in, for there is Vice- Admiral Andy Anderson and Captains Thomas, Simeone and LaPidus from the 291 S. S. Dunes, anchored at Narragansett Pier. They look as if they enjoyed them- selves last night at Roily Parent’s new dancing emporium in Peacedale. Parent’s Emporium features Bristow and Brown, comediennes, nightly in its floorshow with Sumner Halsband acting as Master of Ceremonies. Dance instructions are off- ered, for no extra charge to patrons, by the world famous John Moran, and you may learn voice culture and piano under the supervision of the Greer course, for a small additional fee. Here comes Paul Hines, Head of the State Board of Public Roads, with Hen- rickson, Di Maio, Barnes, Wilson, Kechi- jian, and Chiulli who work with him. They are trying to help Pat Walsh through the crowd with her nursery school class of twelve. Little Juniors, Frances Maguire, Noel MacKinnon, and Bob Townend, 2nd, are having trouble keeping out from under the feet of the score-keepers Ray Dyer, and Gilbert Hicks, and linesman, John Mooshoian. There is a handsome gentleman pacing the track here in front of the press box, who must be paying off a bad bet. It’s David Lownds toting a sandwich board announcing the opening of Jim Dean’s new Sporting Goods store in Biscuit City. Morris Baram is the Vice-President and Charlie Bergesson will manage his adver- tising. Demonstrations of sports equip- ment are free and you may be instructed in tennis by Fred Tew, in skiing by Dick Forte, in golfing by Lloyd Conrad, and in rifle by Miriam Shanley. You may receive practical training in archery and bowling from Miss Benheimer who is also Assistant Director of Athletics at Rhode Island. Dave Barlow has opened up a riding academy nearby, with the help of Edith Robinson and Bob Simpson. There have been several valuable ad- ditions to the faculty from the Class of ’42. Palazzo and Rossi are Dean Wales’ new assistants, while Moroney and Martin have taken over the teaching of the marriage courses. The new Dean of Agriculture, Dr. Francis McVay has recently appointed Professors Johnson, Warren and Northup to preside over the classrooms in Washburn Hall. The new waitress system that you noticed in the cafeteria was inaugurated by the St. Germain sisters, who are in charge there now. The delicious meals served are the products of cooks, Argen- tieri, Norton, and Monti. They are rapidly building up Lippitt’s reputation as one of the choicest of South County’s eating places. The remodeling of South Hall, another great campus change, won the State Architectural Prize for contractor George Boule. Other contestants were Daley, Frazier, and Davis, who received honorable mention for their renovation of East Hall, including the transportation to its new location on South Road. It is almost time for the presentation of the cup which is awarded each year to the alumnus who has done the most for his Alma Mater. Here comes the Alumni 292 Committee, Calenda, Taber, and McCul- lough, headed by the President, Dexter Haven. President Haven is about to pre- sent the cup to Albert Carpenter for his excellent work in landscaping the Rhode Island campus, especially the area extend- ing behind Roosevelt Hall. His associates in this venture, Arthur Fishbein, Jack Joyce and Louis Corsi, are being awarded blue ribbons for their services. There is great excitement at the far end of the stadium. Anne Denico, Motion Picture Academy Award winner for 1962 has just arrived with her publicity agent, John Beck. No wonder there is such ex- citement, for she is accompanied by her leading man in her latest picture, Walter Siravo, and her director, Milton McVay. Other starlets who came in on the special train from Hollywood to be present at their 20th Anniversary are Barbara Emery, Myrtle Abedon, and Mary Healey. The photographers are going wild now, trying to keep track of the public figures in this crowd, for here come former Olympic stars, Les Nichols, Norm Wilcox and Mel Jewett. By the way, if any of you young ladies haven’t escorts for the dance this evening, you may arrange for dates through Thomas Ashworth’s Supreme Escort Service which is meeting with great success on the cam- pus. Bob Goodman, Lyman Cranston, Ray Bliss and Ira Bomstein help him choose his clientele and we assure you that service is cordial and dignified. Most of the fans here this afternoon have been talking about the success of the new clinic opened up at Scarborough-by- the-Sea, by Drs. D’Arcy and Edmonds. The wonders worked by Chiropodists, Barry and Barwich are renowned and are surpassed only by the work of Bargamian and Barlow, who are researching in the use of ultra-violet ray for the cure of neural ailments. Fred Kostka, Dick Houghton and Bill Webster admit that they have been aided greatly by the treatment they have received, and the new taxi service inaugu- rated by Jack Ferris and George Ganiin between Point Judith and Kingston has boosted the trade. Russell Dubois and Yale Gordon are making a success of the bus line from the Railroad to the campus be- cause it provides comfortable, inexpensive commutation for campus week-enders. I have just time before the game starts to publicly thank Harry Hedison and Frank Donilon for the donation of the new Rhody Ram mascot from their sheep farm in North Scituate. I’d like to have time to read Flo Hornstein’s prediction about today’s game in her sports column, but the referees, Sweeney and McNally are run- ning out to the field and there is the whistle! — Sorry folks, Phil Duffy, chair- man of the network, has just notified me that further details of the game are im- possible due to a special program about to be presented. So we must sign off with the hope that tomorrow’s news will be of the Rhody champs of ’62. That is all. 293 CLASS DAY May 17. 1942 Chairman — Jack Ferris Honorary Member — Dr. Vernon I. Cheadlf.

Annie Bristow j Co ' ch Virginia Spencer Margaret Easterbrooks Marie Meola Jeanne Pyne Nancy Carpenter Myrtle Abedon Ruth Phillips Clarke Darthea Bacon Mary D’Arcy John Sanik The women students of Rhode Island State College presented their annual May Day celebration on May 2nd. Sponsored by the Women’s Student Government Association the event marked the “capping” of the presidents of all women’s organizations for the coming year by the out-going presidents and featured the climactic crowning of the queen of the May. The freshmen and sophomore women then presented the Queen and her court the folk dance and the May Pole dance, respectively. The Queen of the May was chosen from a court of senior women including, Rosalie Burt, Ilene Barber, Barbara O’Neil, Helen Curtin, Renee Kahn, Elizabeth Healy, and Helen St. Germain. The senior class procession was lead by Dorothy Barber, vice-president of the class, and the junior ivy procession was lead by Muriel Walling, secretary of the junior class. Each senior girl other than the vari- our organization presidents “capped” a junior to whom she thus passed on her seniorality. As in other years the senior girls from the various Rhode Island high schools were the honored guests during the festival and were entertained at tea in Eleanor Roose- velt Hall.
