The undergo years of the class of 1949 have been highligjJS by a betterment of Rho sland State which might more ajJtl cscribed as rapid. This year marks the fifty jovCntfi anniversary of the college.

The voters state of Rhode Island, the board of trustees, ministrative officials of the state and the fcAnTe alumni and the student body, the Wff ' and Patrons Association — all have lfnbutyd their time and energy toward the d betterment of the college. The senior class extends sincere thanks to them all. 4 The Class Adviser’s Message Forty-niners of the twentieth century: As our gold rush of four years comes to an end my heart is full. Naturally, as your friend, I share your joy in the prospect of pushing farther westward to newer and bigger mines. But also, as your native guide, I regret being left behind. Many of you have proved yourselves out- standing prospectors in the most rapid develop- ment these parts have ever witnessed. New build- ings, new curricula, and a new degree in four swift years are surely strikes worth laying a claim to. But what of your personal stakes made dur- ing the same rush? They are what interest me most. Only the greenest tenderfoot could still feel that our venture has been but a series of dances from Frosh Frolic to Senior Strut. Some of you have even discovered the false glitter in q. p. de- posits and extra-curricular pans. And I hope most of you are finally aware that a few years will rob your claims of both the ore and silt of academic facts. What of value will remain? If your digging has taught you that self satis- faction contains more carats than success, that love is a purer nugget than “tolerance”, that wisdom is more precious ore than skill, in short, that knowing how to live pays more than know- ing how to make a living, your claim is solid gold. Forty-niners, then you are rich — and the mine you leave at Kingston is also so much the richer for your having worked it. 5 The Champ Returneth! The President’s Message A college yearbook is both a mirror and a witness. A s a mirror, its pages reflect the campus scene from day to day, flashing glimpses of the multitude of activities that crowd our busy hours. It interprets the life of the college, both to the members of the college community itself and to outsiders, by picturing the people and the events that together make the college what it is. As a witness, it testifies of the events and achievements of the year, and thus becomes a permanent record, indispensable to the future college historian. In my office is a file of THE GRIST, dating back to 1898. When I look through these volumes, my admiration for our college is quickened. They tell as nothing else has done how this institution has grown from small beginnings to the great things it is doing today. Their pages unfold the splendid story of ever expanding service to the state. In the faces of the young people here pic- tured from year to year, we read the promise of the achievement their subsequent careers have so richly fulfilled. You will value your GRIST now, as it comes from the press, but you will prize it still more highly years hence when you reach the age of reminiscence and can look back upon your col- lege experience in perspective. I can foresee the day when the children and the grandchildren of the Class of 1949 will take this volume from the shelf and pass many a gleeful hour scanning its pages and rediscovering their forbears, even as today we are intrigued by the college scenes pictured in THE GRIST of fifty years ago. This has been a significant year in the life of the college — in physical and academic growth, in program of service, and in responsibility to state and nation. In like manner, THE GRIST of 1949 will surely take a significant place in the ever growing annals of the college. 8 Left to Right.

Shutak SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURE Rhode Island State College, originally founded as a land-grant college under provisions of the Morrill Act of 1862 and the Hatch Act of 1887, offered agriculture as its first course. The School of Agriculture provides agricultural training for young people of the state, conducts research of value to every resident and home-owner of the state as well as to the farmer, and disseminates this research information through local farm bureaus to the citizens of Rhode Island. Students in the agricultural curriculum are aided in their training by the many acres of land devoted to the production of crops. The col- lege dairy herds afford the student of animal hus- bandry the opportunity to gain practical experi- ence in that field. At East Farm the department runs its own poultry farm along with extensive orchards. Greenhouses and experimental plots of land arc available for agronomy courses and classes in horticulture. The graduate of the School of Agriculture is qualified to enter the field of research, to conduct a farm or a business related to farming, and to instruct others in agricultural pursuits. 16 Mason H.

The Accounting option prepares the student for specialized training and practice in the use of modern accounting methods. Many of the gradu- ates of this curriculum go on to take a certificate as a Certified Public Accountant. The Marketing and Advertising option prepares the student in the ever-widening fields of wholesaling and re- tailing, as well as the newer, but equally popular, advertising field. The Insurance option is to pro- vide a broad background of business education with professional training in insurance. The aim of the Industrial Management curriculum is to furnish students with a knowledge of planning and control both in the office and in the factory. It also trains him for work in the field of indus- trial relations. Students in the School of Business Administration are urged to take courses in the natural and social sciences in order to supple- ment the specialized business courses. George A.

Phy- sics and Engineering Mathematics. All curricula have a common first year and during the second semester of that year, the students arc given a course in Engineering Orientation so as to enable them to select their field of specialization more intelligently. Through the Engineering Experiment Station, the School is expanding its program of indus- trial research and providing added facilities to aid the industries of the State in solving some of their problems. A new laboratory ' in Sanitary Engineering has been equipped and is being used both for instructional purposes and for research in industrial waste pollution. Also, in the metal- lurgy field, a laboratory in Heat Treating is in the process of being installed and should be ready for operation in the fall of 1949. 20 T.

Christopher SCHOOL OF HOME ECONOMICS Home Economics as a branch of education at Rhode Island State College began in 1908. In a re-organization of the College in 1938, Home Economics and Agriculture were combined in one school. In 1946, Home Economics was re-estab- lished as a separate school. In addition to the lab- oratories and classrooms in Quinn Hall, the School of Home Economics conducts a Nursery School in Watson House and classes in institu- tion management in the Lippitt Hall Cafeteria. In addition to these facilities there is a Home Management House used by the students for actual family living experience. The objectives of the program of study in Home Economics is to provide educational opportunities for the development of the individual as a person and as a citizen, for home and family life, and for professional and pre-professional training. In the early history of its development, education in Home Economics consisted largely of teaching the efficient performance of household skills. The field has broadened its scope as women’s status had changed and as vocational opportunities have opened for women. Basic study in the bio- logical, physical, and social sciences is an impor- tant part of the required study during the fresh- man and sophomore years. Opportunity for spe- cialized study in one of the five curricula is planned for the junior and senior years. 22 Olga P.

Wi thin the objectives of the several curricula offered, the School of Arts and Sciences serves three general purposes. The provison of pre-pro- fessional and professional training in the techni- cal fields of Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics; the training of teachers for secondary schools, both private and public, and in a wide variety of subjects, including physical education; the offer- ing of a liberal education, providing a broad back- ground of general education and giving opportun- ity to major in several fields of study, including Economics, English, History, Language, Political Science and Sociology. 1st row: P.

The Reserve Officers Training Corps can date its origin back to July 2, 1862, the date on which Abraham Lincoln signed the Land-Grant Bill, commonly known as the Morrill Act. R.O.T.C. has been a part of Rhode Island State College since the school was established as the “Rhode Island State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts” on May 19, 1892. Since that time the enrollment steadily increased until it reached an all time high of 624 Basic and Advanced Course students in 1939. During the war years, the Advanced Course was suspended, and the basic course enrollment dropped to as low as 40, due to the great number of members being drafted into the Armed Forces. In February of 1946, the Advanced Course was reactivated at Rhode Island State College with an enrollment of 19 veterans. Twelve of these original members re- ceived commissions as Second Lieutenants in the Officers Reserve Corps in February 1948. In June of 1948, thirteen more men were commis- sioned in the Infantry, Engineers, Signal Corps, and Chemical Corps. June 1949 will see 22 com- missioned Second Lieutenants in the Officers Re- serve Corps. A Quartermasters Corps was established in September 1948 which now has a membership of 72. To take care of the expanding enrollment, a sub-unit has been activated at the Providence Center, with an enrollment of 162. The anticipat- ed enrollment for the basic course for next Sep- tember is estimated at 800 with a corresponding increase in the Advanced Course. The courses, re- quirements, benefits, etc., of the ROTC course are outlined in the current college catalog. 26 R.O.T.C. STAFF Colonel B. R. DeGraff Captain Leslie F. Coates Captain Gabriel A.

Representatives are sent to the National Inter- fraternity Conference to discuss common prob- lems with undergraduates from colleges in every section of the country. Closer ties have also been Rho Iota Kappa Theta Chi Beta Phi Sigma Chi Lambda Chi Alpha Sigma Alpha Epsilon Alpha Epsilon Pi Phi Mu Delta Tau Kappa Epsilon Phi Sigma Kappa Alpha Tau Gamma Beta Psi Alpha Tau Epsilon Phi Sigma Pi effected with the Interfraternity Alumni Council founded here during the war years. Governed by officers selected impartially from among the representatives of each fraternity, Polygon cannot be influenced unduly by any single unit or small clique. Always a governing board, Polygon now has become a sounding board for the fraternities. Fred Lopes, George Hanuschak Raymond R.

The years from 1908 to 1949 have seen many strides forward with P.I.K.’s good fellowship and brotherhood continual- ly growing stronger. From its origin at the Peckham Homestead to her present chapter house, P.I.K.’s main purpose has been to further the interests of Rhode Island State College. Perhaps its most important con- tribution to the college in the past few years has been in the field of athletics. It has led not only in intramural competition, but its members have also played a leading role in the success of the varsity teams. 32 Michal Balzano Conrad Darelius James Dubee Harold Hagopian George Hanuschak Elliott Johnson Louis Kelley Fred Lopes Raymond Malone Albert Palmieri Grafton Rice Anthony Roderick Richard Rutherford John Smith Stanley Wesolowski Henry Zabierek CLASS Paul Boghossian OF Alton Andrews 1950 Leonard Euart Albert Hanson Louis Josselyn Thomas Keenan John Livingstone Salvatore Soscia Francis Spilecki Robert Squadrito Salvatore Vcnto CLASS Arthur Adamopoulos OF Raymond Dalton 1951 Everett Doll Stanley Grabicc Duncan McCrae Maurice Murphy John O’Neil Charles Pyne William Redding Bambino Soscia Walter Waitkin Charles Varney Joseph Ventetuolo FACULTY George E.

Bruno THETA CHI Founded as a local fraternity in 1909, Eta Chap- ter of Theta Chi Fraternity bears the distinction of being the second oldest fraternity at Rhode Island State. In 1911, the fraternity set a pre- cedent by being granted a Theta Chi Charter and was initiated as the first national fraternity on campus. As of October 1947 the national fra- ternity boasted of 73 chapters throughout the country. It is sometimes called the “Fraternity of Deans”, since it numbers on its rolls many deans and presidents of U. S. colleges and uni- versities. Noted for setting precedents, Eta Chapter was the first to secure the services of a full time housemother, a practice still continuing and since adopted by other fraternities. It also set up the first dining unit with a resident chef. Theta Chi’s have always been noted for their participation in sports and other extra-curricular activities, having officers and members in Sachems, Polygon, Student Senate, and other professional and honorary societies. 34 CLASS Frank Averill Roland Jenkins John O’Gara OF Harold Browning Walter Jenkins William Orme 1949 Robert Curtis Wm.

Its charter members, occu- pants of East Hall, or- ganized Beta Phi and found temporary hous- ing in the Watson House. Ground was broken in 1913 by Dr. John Bar- low for Beta Phi, the first fraternity ' house to be built on campus. In 1926, with the mortgage burning, Beta Phi became the first fraternity on campus to own a house. During the recent conflict more than 250 of the Brothers carried with them into all parts of the globe the fraternal ideals, Unity and Progress. 36 CLASS Harold L. Bloom Charles W.

DELTA ALPHA PSI Delta Alpha Psi, the fourth oldest fraternity on the campus of Rhode Island State College, was founded in 1910. The fraternity received offi- cial recognition from the college April 6, 1912. In 1913, through the co- operation of President Edwards, the fraternity was given a lease on the Perry House on Upper College Road. Ground was broken in 1917 for the erection of a perman- ent dwelling, and construction was completed the following year. On the twenty-fifth anniversary of the found- ing, Delta Alpha once more expanded. The house was completely renovated and a new wing was added. Of the fraternities on the campus, Delta Alpha Psi has the largest alumni body and an active alumni organization which meets regu- larly in Providence. 38 CLASS Arthur Anderson OF Jack E.

A total of 1 10 alum- ni associations actively participate in current fraternity functions. The total membership of both undergraduate and alumni now exceeds 40,000. Eta Zeta was installed at Rhode Island State College in 1914. The present chapter house af- fectionately known as the “Ranch”, was first oc- cupied in September 1936. During the war, our house was utilized as a faculty dining hall and a men’s dormitory. In September 1946, Eta re- opened and promptly regained pre-war stand- ards and efficiency. The Chapter has established and maintained an enviable record in scholastic, athletic and social activities since its activation 34 years ago. 40 CLASS Robert J. Bainton OF Edward C.

Rhode Island Alpha Chapter, formerly the local fraternity, Zeta Pi Alpha, was incorporated into the national fra- ternity in 1929. In 1934, a new chapter house was occupied by the members. Many improve- ments have made the chapter one of the lead- ing houses on the campus. Rhode Island Alpha Chapter has strived over the years to further the interests of her college and her fraternity. The activities of her members both in athletics and scholastic endeavor have been in keeping with the standards and goals of both the college and the student body. 42 CLASS William Parker OF James Duffy 1949 Robinson Hindle William Sharry Leo Sullivan Roswell Bosworth Matthew Bozek Isaac Gorham Merrill Pierce Edgar Freeman Stephen Quinn Burton Hall Salvatore Sclafani CLASS Edwin E.

Bazar ALPHA EPSILON PI The local fraternity of Beta Nu Epsilon came into existence in the spring of 1922 with a charter membership of ten men. As the chapter prospered the idea of nationalization became an important factor of the policy. Finally in 1928 it was decided to affiliate with Alpha Ep- silon Pi. At the time of the induction, Dr. Howard Edwards, President of Rhode Island State College, was initiated as an honorary brother. During the war years the house was used as a dormitory by the college, but with the end of the emergency, AEPi has returned to its former status. Both before and after the war Alpha Epsilon Pi has had a record to be proud of on Rhode Island State’s campus. 44 CLASS Albert Abramovitz OF Irving Berman 1949 Burton Blazar Martin Cohen Sidney Dubinsky Irwin Galkin Marvin Geller Daniel Glasbcrg Stanley Grossman Arthur Klein Harold Krasner Asher Mclzcr Richard Paster Stanley Slom Julius Krasner Erwin Summer Robert Tiemann Charles Cohn Justin Abrams Allan Bernstein Robert Bolusky David Feinman Allan Fine Junius Gertz Charles Grcenstcin Solomon Katzen Irving Kelman Samuel Kcstcnman Richard Klein Milton Pierce Jerome Port Arnold Riback Herbert Sackett Harold Schwartz Franklin Simon Alvin Stallman Calvin Sugarman Marshall Weiss Milton Zalk Morris Zarchcn CLASS George Abrahams OF Banice Bazar 1951 Herbert Emcrs Paul Fradin Irwin Freedman Mitchell Geller Leonard Gilman Philip Ginsburg George Handler Herbert Horen Bernard Jacobvitz Owen Kwasha Arthur Levin Irwin Lecht Jay Lustig Marshall Rakusin David Rosenfield Norman Solish David Sopkin Irving Sugerman Merrill Temkin Bruce Zimmerman FACULTY Dr. Edward M.

The charter was granted on the sixteenth of that same Jan- uary. Delt a Sigma Epsilon, located in what is now the Village Church House, was absorbed by Phi Mu Delta and chartered as Nu Eta Chapter in 1929. The present house was occupied in 1932. Eleven non-fraternity men, drawn together in 1923 by common inter- ests, gradually grew to realize that their power and ideals could be strengthened only by the formation of a local fraternity.

As the membership grew, the group petitioned and became a local fraternity, Phi Beta Chi, making it the seventh Greek Letter organization on campus. In 1937 the chapter joined Tau Kappa Ep- silon and became the sixth national on campus. Professors Billmycr and Coggins were among the charter members installed with Alpha Rho Chapter. Our aim is to set forth the true spirit of man’s traditional feeling of fratcrnalism. 48 CLASS Errol Carpenter OF Albert O. Gentes 1949 Alfred Johnson William V. Lceburn Robert E. Marcille William T.

The first home of the group was Tavern Hall. Prior to the purchase of the present location in 1933, the fraternity was incorporated as the “Order of Phi Sigma” by the Secretary of State in 1930. The war curtailed the house’s activity. It was closed in 1943, entered the “fraternity pool” in 1945, and was reactivated in 1946. It then petitioned successfully for affiliation with the national fraternity, Phi Sigma Kappa, and was inducted officially on February 22, 1948. 50 CLASS Bruce Britton OF Alfred Campagnone 1 949 Raymond Cardin Walter Carleen Arthur Hull Charles Manfredi Charles McCormack Francis Perry Harry Stransky Saul Saila Richard Benvenuti John Brady Earl Brown Domenic Campanella Robert Downey Donald Dumelow William Fcrrigno Joseph Giusto Joseph Keegan Alfred Louzon David Manning Conrad Skogley Claude Thulier James Baldwin George Pinheiro Albert Russo Richard Steadman FACULTY Dr. Robert S.

Total membership numbers 210, of which 37 are active members. The original group lived at the Fortin House for three years before occupying its present home, the former Beta Phi house. Professor Joseph W. Ince, our faculty advisor for a period of 19 years, retired last spring. His services and assistance over those years played a major role in the development of the organi- zation. Dr. Theodore Odland has succeeded Professor Ince as ATG’s faculty advisor. Founded in 1929, Alpha Tau Gamma looks forward to many more years of success. 52 CLASS OF 1949 Richard S. Baker William R.

Having a stron g and active alumni, the fra- ternity recognizes such honorary members as His Excellency the Governor, John O.

Sheehan TAU EPSILON PHI In the fall of 1946, sev- eral students became imbued with the idea that a fraternity could, and should, be represen- tative not only of the fraternal spirit, but also of the ideals of freedom for which this country stands. These men resolved to organize a fraternal group in which all men, regardless of race or religion, could live together with a feeling of true brotherhood. The new year saw the constitution completed and ratified by the group. In April 1947, a petition for recognition as a local fraternity was submitted. After approval by Polygon and the College administration, a provisional charter was granted on November 19, 1947. On April 11, 1948, the fraternity was initiated into Tau Epsilon Phi national fraternity. 56 CLASS Ralph Aden OF Richard Blaine 1949 Jack Fradin Morton Gollis Milton Kilberg Alan Klein CLASS Leon Carpenter OF Rudolph DeQuattro 1950 John Fyffe Carroll Martus Leo McCusker Richard Meyer Robert Seaberg Eugene Sherman CLASS Richard Blackinton OF Stephen Cohen 1951 Donald Decof John Faulkner Stanley Fine Murray Miller Roger Plante FACULTY Dr. William Itter OFFICERS Chancellor, Leo X.

As an or- ganization, Tau Sigma functioned continuous- ly until its recognition by the College adminis- tration late in 1947. The group stood as a local fraternity at Rhode Island State College until its affiliation with Sigma Pi National Fraternity in September, 1948. The national fraternity, Sigma Pi, was found- ed at Vincennes University of Vincennes, Indiana on February 26, 1897. At present there are thirty-seven active chapters of Sigma Pi, in ad- dition to six units which are in a state of coloni- zation. With chapters located in all parts of the country, the Rhode Island State affiliate is the Alpha Upsilon Chapter. 58 CLASS Ernest G. Ashton OF James W. Cheever, Jr. 1949 Donald M. Grant Earl R.

As a result of the meeting a club was formed which was named the Aquinas Club after St. Thomas Aquinas, a noted philosopher and scholar. The organization has grown rapidly through the addition of new members and in February 1949 a petition for recognition as a local fra- ternity was submitted. Pending action on the petition, the organization continues to function as the Aquinas Club.

Brown SIGMA KAPPA Sigma Kappa Sorority was founded at Colby College, Maine in 1874. Since that time the or- ganization has expand- ed until there are now forty-nin,e chapters spread throughout the country. Phi chapter was founded in 1914 at Rhode Island State College as Sigma Tau Delta, the first sorority established on the campus. Miss Helen E. Peck, former Dean of Women, was one of the founders, and later an esteemed ad- visor to the group.

From this date it has grown until now there are twenty-six active chapters throughout the United States and Can- ada with a total of 4,100 members. The sorority started on this campus as the Rhode Island Campus Club in 1933. It was reorganized as Nu Alpha in 1935. On January 25, 1947, Nu Alpha became incorporated as Alpha Beta Chapter of Sigma Delta Tau. The members of Sigma Delta Tau, by living and working together, aim to achieve one goal — that each and every member shall receive by active participation all the benefits of campus activities so that she, in future years, will know how to live a rich and satisfying life. 70 CLASS Lucille Bernstein OF Leona Berlow 1949 Harriet Brouth Barbara Cantor Rosalea Elowitz Ernestine Levin Bernice Schuster Eveline Sherman CLASS Adele Birenbaum OF Braina Chernov 1950 Arlene Eisenberg Naomi Freedman Beverly Klein Evelyn Mines Matilda Nemtzow Harriet Podrat Norberta Salk Annette Silverman CLASS Jacqueline Cohen OF Deborah Frank 1951 Miriam Goldstein Dolores Lovett Avis Shapiro Marilyn Stone Beverly Strauss OFFICERS President, Ernestine Levin Vice-Pres., Naomi Freedman Treasurer, Evelyn Mines Secretary, Matilda Nemtzow FACULTY Faculty Advisor, Miss M.

It was a group of ten young women who had in mind an organi- zation to cultivate friendship between its members, protect them in all ways, and maintain honor and duty, that first put it into active existence. Alpha Xi Delta has grown until there are now 75 chapters. Eta Phi became Beta Upsilon, the sixty-sec- ond chapter of Alpha Xi Delta in May of 1948. Eta Phi was founded on October 30, 1945, by fourteen girls and recognized as a local in June of 1946. Work was recently completed on the chapter room.

Tower ALPHA DELTA PI Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, the oldest secret society for college women in the world, was founded on May 15, 1851, at Wes- leyan Female College, Macon, Georgia. Known first as the Adel- phean Society, in 1904 it was organized nation- ally as Alpha Delta Pi. In 1944, four girls formed a new society for women on our campus, which became recog- nized by the college on March 13, 1947, as Tau Alpha Epsilon Sorority. A little over a year later, on May 22, 1948 the group was installed as the Gamma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi. There are now seventy-two chapters active throughout the United States and Canada. Our purpose is to maintain a high standard of mutual betterment — in group responsibility, personal conduct, scholarship, and campus re- lationships. 74 CLASS Janice Bostrom Marion Kent OF Mary Dingwall Esther Marino 1949 Lois Erickson Nancy Reynolds CLASS Mary Deluca Jeanne Joy OF Esther Depardo Felicia Juras 1950 Joanne Forsythe Anna Kempenaar Nancy Jenks Priscilla Lees Phyllis Johnson Sally McCaughey Virginia Jones Dorothy McKenna CLASS Elizabeth Corry Barbara Kenyon OF Eileen Hebert Nancy Rawlinsoi 1951 FACULTY Faculty Advisor, Miss Bacon OFFICERS President, Nancy Reynolds Vice-President, Lois Eri Secretary, Felicia Juras Caro Shute Serena Tudisca Geraldine Tower Marie Pantalone Marjorie Saccocia Roberta Smith Nancy Spencer Ruth Townley Alice Tefft Shirley Whitcomb Treasurer, Esther Marino 75 1st tow : N.

One senator and one alternate are elected for every forty students enrolled. It is vested with legislative and executive powers to regulate all student activities which involve the whole student body and which arc not covered by the charter, by-laws, and regulations of the college. Among its major accomplishments of the past year arc changes in the election regulations for both upper and lower classmen, and complete charge of Athletic Association ticket distribution and ticket taking at the games. It is hoped that with the erection of the new Student Union and its “Senate Chamber”, in honor of Stephen O. Metcalf, that one of Stu- dent Senate’s prime aims, to promote closer re- lationships between the administration and the entire student body, will be realized. 93 1st row: E. Maljanian, J. Hayden, M.

The paper is sub-divided in- to various departments so that each of its mem- bers is afforded an op- portunity to gain valuable experience in the writ- ing of news, sports, and features. In addition to writing, the newspaper offers experience in make- up work and co mm ercial aspects of journalism such as advertising and circulation. The election of officers is held in the early part of the second semester so that the incom- ing officers may still have the benefit of the graduating seniors’ experience. The Beacon is representative of student ideas, publishing all letters and articles on student or college problems. 96 OFFICERS Editor-in-chief Ros Bosworth Managing Editor Leo Sullivan News Editor Bob Mason Assistant News Editor Bill Ryan Desk Editor Bob Almeida Sports Editor Frank Pritchard Assoc.

WHOE, the Rhode Island State College Radio Network, was initiated in the Fall of 1946. After a year of planning and design by the technical department, construction of the equipment was started in the summer of 1947 and completed in the fall of that year. It was in late November that WHOE aired its first broadcast. Now, after two years of broadcasting, WHOE has a membership that numbers over seventy. As a campus radio station, WHOE has brought to the students the best in programs and all spe- cial events such as basketball games, musical pro- ductions from Edwards Auditorium, ground breaking ceremony for the new dormitories, cam- pus news items and special interviews. WHOE has been active in the Student War Memorial Fund, the Building Bills campaign of 1947, and the Gymnasium-Armory referendum. WHOE is distinctive in being the only campus activity that serves the students every day, bring- ing the programs to the campus every night dur- ing the school week.

Pease The various religious groups of the campus, Asbury Club, Canterbury Club, Hillel Founda- tion, Lutheran Association, Newman Club, and the Student Fellowship, have united in forming the Inter-faith Organization, which seeks to en- courage membership in the religious organiza- tions on campus, promote better understanding among them, and further their common inter- ests. The program of the Inter-Faith Organization is designed to stimulate interest in religion and religious activities, and to erase the prejudices which may arise among adherents to different faiths. Its governing body is the council to which each member organization annually elects three dele- gates, and its advisory board is composed of mem- bers of the faculty. 113 ASBURY CLUB OFFICERS President Jack B. Mitsock Secretary-Treasurer Pat Shailer Director of Publicity George Mona Religious Advisor Rev. Wesley Hodge, Wakefield The Asbury Club was organized November 14, 1946. It is named for Bishop Francis Asbury, one of the earliest Methodist Bishops in America. The purpose of the Asbury Club (The Rhode Island State College Methodist Student Organi- zation) is four fold: 1. To provide Christian fellowship on the col- lege level. 2. To develop Christian leadership for the local churches. 3. To help the students with their personal problems through the assistance of a relig- ious counselor. 4. To aid in the development of the total man — intellectually, physically, and spirit- ually. The club meets every second Thursday from 7:00 P. M. to 8:00 P. M. o’clock in Room 109, Quinn Hall.

Previous to this, the organiza- tion was known as the Canterbury Group, but this year we were able to join the national asso- ciation of Canterbury Clubs. The Canterbury Club is sponsored by the Episcopal Church as one unit of the countrywide organization for college students. Its purpose is to develop among students an intelligent and growing knowledge of the Christian Faith and an increasing com- mitment to the mission of the Christian Church, as well as to foster fellowship and sociability. The group is vitally concerned with the devel- opment of knowledge of the Christian Church as received by the Episcopal Church, but this is not to emphasize differences but to enable each organization to make its own unique contribution to the welfare of the whole group. 115 a k ISjrnHK M In “ ' ; j . | 1 i rM Ti m M VI Jlj V V - " m • v i Sherman, S.

OUTING CLUB The Outing Club, an organization for students interested in outdoor activity, was started on this campus in 1935 by Coach Bill Beck. With the advent of war, its activities were curtailed. In 1 948 a group which had previous contact with a similar club at another college, organized the R. I. State College Outing Club with Mr. Weis as faculty advisor. He had previously been an active member in such an organization at Har- vard and M.I.T. Spring activities include hikes and bicycle trips through New England and Cape Cod. An added feature is the annual square dance open to the entire campus. During the warmer weath- er, beach parties are very popular. Winter activities center around ice-skating and skiing. Weekend ski trips to New Hamp- shire and Vermont are planned and prove to be most successful. Coach Beck has assisted the club by giving dry land ski lessons to interested students. The club operates in cooperation with Mr. Berry on weekend activities. It is open to the entire student body, faculty, and staff.

Thuotte BOAT CLUB The Rhode Island State College Boat Club was formed in 1935 for the purpose of providing pleasure and experience for all students interest- ed in sailing The club was on the inactive list during the war, but was reorganized in 1945 and became an active member of the Inter- Collegiate Yacht Racing Association. The Club has been an active participant in many regattas this year and is now the proud possessor of three Dyer Dinks. However, a still larger fleet is the goal of the club. The addition of these boats has made it possible for the Boat Club to have home regattas on Salt Pond where the new boat house is located. After serving very ably as the faculty advisor for the Rhode Island State College Boat Club since its founding in 1935, Professor Schock has resigned and Mr. Jerome Gilbert and Dr. Eugene Winslow are the new faculty advisors. 129 11-- i Ip 1 Jaw A m - ■ f 1st row: Basil DeWolf, Howie Boardman, Patsy Benesch, Billie Benesch, Suzan Miller, Christy Kramer, Craig O’Rourke, Mark and Judy Johnson, Lynda Wales, Susan Brunnckow, Leslie Belanger, Jackie Brissette. 2nd row : P.

McCauley, has expanded to a membership of over one hundred and fifty, thus making it again one of the largest organizations on campus. This year as in years past, several outstand- ing concerts have been presented by the Choir. These included a Christmas and an Easter pro- gram. In addition to making trips to other col- leges to present programs, Rhody Choir held an Intercollegiate festival here on campus, with several New England colleges participating.

Band had a highly successful year. With membership at a new high the marching band came out with new uniforms, marching formations, and musical arrange- ments, to inject an added element of pep into the football season. Making a quick change over to concert band status during the winter months it gave the cam- pus a spirited performance of the latest in con- cert music. R. I.

Its organization was officially approv- ed by the college authorities in the late spring of 1948, and the group began to function during the fall term, 1948. During this term, it was accepted into the Engineering Council. The purpose of the society is to acquaint the student of physics with the objectives and methods of modern research physics and thus better pre- pare him for a career in this field. To accom- plish this, regular meetings are held at which taken part in the annual Christmas Concert and a formal Spring Concert. OFFICERS Manager Robert Kettlety Director Arnold Clair SOCIETY speakers prominent in certain fields of research talk to the group of the various problems that are being met and of th e progress that is being made.

STATE COACH OF K BASKETBALL S everal years ago Frank Lanning, the Evening Bulletin sports cartoonist, observed Frank Keaney’s twenty-fifth anniversary as coach at Rhode Island State College with a cartoon which contained the following words: " This is Frank Keaney’s Twenty-Fifth Year as coach at Rhode Island State College. To stay at the helm of any college athletic department for a quarter of a century requires having considerable on the ball. More than any other individual, he symbolizes sports in this state. His theories and practices have often been termed unorthodox, but his unique system produces winners. Above all, he has done a great service for this state because an outstanding athletic team advertises a community better than can any other medium.” As the summer of 1948 drew to a close, Frank Keaney resigned as coach of basket- ball and baseball to devote his full time to his duties as Athletic Director. Frank Lanning’s words are even more applicable today and they aptly express the apprecia- tion of the countless thousands who have benefited from Frank Keaney’s work as a coach. 136 WOMEN’S SPORTS BARBARA O’BRIEN Bouve — Boston Tufts College PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT NANCY C.

The object of this Association is “to promote and carry on a co-ed athletic program with the op- portunity of participation open to every girl, and to promote a feeling of friendship, good sportsmanship, and respect among the co-eds themselves and toward other institutions with which we participate.” The administrative power of the W. A. A. is vested in the council which awards all cups and individual awards. Awards are given on a point basis which are earned by being a member of a class team, house team, honor team, class or house manager, scorer, timer, and linesman. The W. A. A. blazer shall be awarded to any girl who has acquired a total of 2000 points. Any girl earning 1300 points shall be awarded a W. A. A. key; a total of 500 points, the W. A. A. shield. At the annual banquet a cup shall be awarded the Senior who has received the high- est number of points in her four years of com- petition. The officers of the W. A. A. for the current year are as follows: President, Barbara Had- field ; Secretary, Ann Budlong; Senior Represent- ative, Elizabeth Maljanian; Junior Representa- tive, Peggy Tefft; Sophomore Representative, Lillian Grocott; Social Chairman, Ann Randall. 139 Betty MacDonald, Singles champ. BADMINTON - SPRING - 1948 Healthful exercise, fun, and W. A. A. points add up to make this an inviting and enjoyable sport. The turn-out this season was commendable. Singles and doubles matches are played by the elimination-consolation method. Betty Mac- Donald defeated Sally Keleher in the finals to win the singles championship. 140 TENNIS - SPRING - 1948 Though the weather was against them, many enthusiastic tennis players competed in the class tournaments. Heavy rains prevented the completion of the tournament so that, for an- other year, the individual championship cup could not be awarded. The individual class winners are pictured above. They are “Snit” English, senior, Ann Obradovich, junior, and Sally Keleher, sophomore. 141 SOFTBALL - SPRING - 1948 This season showed that it takes more than stormy weather to dampen the spirits of softball enthusiasts. Both class and intra-mural competitions brought forth their quotas of fun and sport. The Junior class took the honors in the former, while Sigma Kappa, whose team is pictured above, captured the intra-mural championship trophy. 142 ARCHERY - SPRING - 1948 The Rhode Island varsity archery team participated in an Interscholastic Archery Tournament last Spring and placed thirty-second in competition with sixty other colleges. The competition consisted of a Columbia Round shot by six players on a team. The round is made up of six arrows shot from each of the 50, 40 and 30 yard lines. The score received by each of the six players on the Colum- bia Rounds was totaled and sent to the National Archery As- sociation as the team score. A rating of either A, B, or C was given by the Association to the player shooting over a certain required average. One member of our team, Anna Louzon, received a score which gave her a Class B rating. Other archers from this college who are not pictured are Jean Cruickshank and Joan Forsythe. 143 First Row — M.

We really had “hockey” weather straight from the latter part of September to Thanksgiving. About two-hundred coeds attended scheduled practice for the annual Women’s Field Hockey program. The sparkling senior team under the leadership of “Liz” Maljanian, as Captain, and Claire Asadorian, as Manager, won the interclass tournament. The honor team, also captained by “Liz” and managed by Doris Pellegrini, journeyed to Wellesley College in October to attend the Boston Athletic Association’s Playday. During the day’s competition, the team tied Lowell but was defeated by Sargeant. Two of our most outstanding players, Liz Maljanian and Carol Reid, were chosen to play on the all-star team which played against the Boston Athletic Association. 144 Left to right: D. PeHigrini, C.

BASKETBALL The basketball season extends from December through February, and is divided into three sections, inter-class, intra- mural, and varsity. This year, the senior class, under the able leadership of captain “Jo” Narducci, and the sparkling play of “Liz” Maljanian, Joan Sawyer, and Jean Laity, won the championship. The intra-mural competition was won by Eleanor Roosevelt Hall, w ' hose team was captained by “Liz”. After these two tournaments are completed, the varsity, or honor team is chosen, which is composed of the most outstand- ing players of the season. This team competes with other col- leges, such as, U. of Conn., Pembroke, Bryant College, and Mass. State. Front row — V. Jones, J. Littlefield, E. Hebert, E. Eisenberg. Back row — J. Forsythe, A.

They have become members of the National Rifle Association, an organization in which the team will try for the National Women’s Intercollegiate Team Championship Trophy. The team has also enrolled the five highest scorers to compete in the National Women’s Individual Matches. This new program is in addition to postal matches with other colleges from New Hampshire to California. There will be fifteen matches altogether. This year the girls’ team defeated the boys’ varsity team with a twenty point handicap in a five-rounds-in-four-positions match. The score was 926 to 867. Since Sergeant Frank L. Doggett will depart for his com- mission overseas, the team will be under the supervision of Captain Howard K. Welch. 147 Front row — B. Skoogland, J. Tomellini, C. Bourne, B. Bosworth, E.

They cheer at all of the home games and at as many of the “away” games as possible, such as St. John’s in New York, Holy Cross in Boston, Providence College and Brown in Providence. They also cheer at all of the home games that are held in the Provi- dence Auditorium. Selection of new members to replace the graduating seniors is made each year by a process of elimination following a series of tryouts. Joan Sawyer and Louise Reilly, who are pictured at the left, are the only members of the squad who arc graduating this year. 148 MEN’S SPORTS Tom Muddiman Norman Monks Francis Knight R. I.

VARSITY FOOTBALL Head Coach Bill Beck Backfield Coach Hank Soar Line Coach Vic Palladino Co-Captains John McLaughlin Herb O’Rourke Manager Lenny Bressette With 50 candidates reporting September 1st, the 1948 R. I. State football squad began prep- aration for its season under Head Coach Bill Beck, Backfield Coach Hank Soar, and their newly appointed Line Coach, Vic Palladino, for- mer Boston College star. Herb O’Rourke and John McLaughlin were named Co-captains to lead the Ram eleven thruout the ’48 season. With a new double wing T formation added on to their offensive prowess, the Rams started their season off with a powerful offensive show of 56-0 against the Quonset Naval Air Station at Meade Field. Scoring more than half as many points in this one game as they did all last sea- son, the blue-clad warriors were never threatened and had little to bar their course. Charlie Var- ney, a sophomore from last years Freshman squad, and our ever-dependable Sal Vento were the big guns in the State onslaught with 2 T.D.’s apiece. The other five T.D.’s were ably made by little Bobby Squadrito, Rene Fredette, John Martin, Ed McNulty and Ray Dalton. Flushed with their crushing victory over a hapless Quonsett Flyer eleven, the Rams travel- ed to Orono to square off with the Black Bears of Maine. Rated the underdogs, the Rams sur- prised the crowd of 6000 as they forced their opponents to go all out for their close victory of 13-7. A pass from Varney to Johnson, with the latter runn ing 35 yards, produced R. I.’s only score. Johnson also added the extra point. 152 WJtr The board of strategy, Coaches Palladino, Soar, and Beck. Despite heroic efforts the Rams suffered their second defeat of the season at the hands of the Wildcats of New Hampshire, 19-7 at Lewis Field, N. H. With the Wildcats leading 7-0 in the 2nd quarter, Sal Vento intercepted a pass and ran 90 yards to score. Elliot Johnson pro- ceeded to kick the extra point to knot the count at 7-all. New Hampshire came back in the sec- ond half with vengeance and scored two T.D.’s, which ended the scoring of the day. “Maybe next year!” That’s the feeling on che campus after the annual visit to Brown. The powerful Brown eleven crushed the hopes for a long awaited football victory by bowl ing over the valiant Rams 33-0. Despite the score the Rams showed plenty of spirit and fight; there- fore, the Bruinites knew they were in the ball game every minute. Battered but unbowed after absorbing three straight defeats, the Rams outplayed a heavier University of Massachusetts eleven and chalked up their second triumph before a Parent’s Day crowd of 3000 at Meade Field. The Rams spot- ted the Redmen six points in the opening per- iod, but after two beautiful runs by Ben Curtis and Ray Dalton, Eddie Edgar went over for the tying score. Then Rhody’s own version of the V-2, Chuck Varney and Sal Vento, roared downfield for two touchdowns which spelled de- feat for our guests. After a week’s rest, the Bcckmen traveled to Springfield to play host to the highly rated Gymnasts. The Rams suddenly realizing their own potentialities, outplayed a bigger and better manned eleven by sheer fight alone. The final score was 2 1 all, but actually it was a tremendous moral victory for the underrated Rams. De- Edgar plunges over for 6 points against Massachusetts. 153 Scores 1948 Season Varsity Quonset 0; R. I. 56 Maine 13; R. I. 7 New Hampshire 19; R. I. 7 Brown 33; R. I. 0 Massachusetts 12; R.

The Rhodyites were a poor imitation of the team that tied Springfield the week before. Ben Curtis Ben Curtis reels off 20 yds. against U-Conn. 154 An anxious moment on the Rhody bench. Both Vento and Vamey ran well, but the UConn line was as tight as the crowds in Moy’s on a Friday night. Rhody’s only score came on a beautiful 84 yard run by Bob Underhill on a pass interception. Captain John McLaughlin turned in a stellar performance to close his col- legiate career. Donning the Blue and White for the last time were: Captain John McLaughlin, Slim Rod- erick, Swede Johnson, Buck McSweeney, Art Carlin, Bing Miller, Bob Curtis, Eddie Edgar, Ed Becker and Tom Muddiman.

The Ram line looked good by breaking up the Prep school’s attack. The next week, Maritime Academy came to Kingston. The Frosh beat them easily by a score of 1 3-0. Paul Shaughnessy, Hank Orabone, Gordon Munroe and Art Palmitessa were stand- outs for the Rhode Islanders. The following week an undefeated and un- scored on State team met Marianapolis Prep, a power in the football world. Bill “Tiger” Wright scored two touchdowns, but the “dark- green” lost a 13-2 verdict. End “Whitey” Mc- Comb and Joe Venditto were strong in the line. State dropped their second straight game by losing to Brown. This game was the best of the season. A Brown team with over fifty battled a Ram squad of only 18. The “18 faithful” put up a gallant struggle. In the last quarter a pen- alty gave the ball to Brown on State’s one yard line. This broke the game wide open and Brown won 14-0. Tufts Freshmen came next on the list. The Rams wanted to regain their winning stride, and they did just that by thumping the Jumbos, 26-0. Hugo Vigoroso, Jim Santos, and Tony D’Amico came to life and played superb ball. Vigoroso made the longest run of the season with an 80-yard jaunt. The team journeyed to Springfield, Mass., and defeated the Gymnasts, 16-0. Bill Wright, the Kingston express, scored ten of the sixteen points for Rhody. The Frosh made it a pleasant “Homecoming Day” for the Alumni by defeating the Connec- ticut Freshmen 20-13. “Big Ed” Pernaveau played a good game. With Wright hurt and Lombardi still suffering the effects of an injury, Ed took over the running spot. State ended the season scoring 117 points to their opponents’ 40. They certainly offer Rhody fans and Alumni high hopes for the future. 157 SPRING TRACK The Rhode Island State College outdoor track team of 1948 proved to be one of the strong- est aggregations produced by coaches Tootell and Williams in recent years. The team opened the season by receiving a stunning defeat at the hands of Harvard, (the first dual meet loss for Rhody in twelve years) but recovered quick- ly, and went on from here to capture the Yan- kee Conference and the New England Inter- collegiate crowns. In dual competition, the forces of Fordham, Springfield, and Brown felt the full fury of the Kingston cindermen. Lopsided scores were the rule in these meets. The single defeat by Har- vard was attributed to overconfidence on the part of Rhode Island ; however, the Cambridge boys displayed excellent performances when they were most needed, thereby snapping one of the finest collegiate track records in history. Penn Relays . . . April 24 Bob Black, and Horace Ashenfelter, of Penn State electrified the crowd with a shoulder to shoulder sprint over the last two hundred yards of the Invitation two mile run. Thirty yards from home, Ashenfelter broke his stride and Black won going away. Bob Miller placed sec- ond in the 16 pound hammer throw, and Art Sherman won second place in the pole vault. The two mile relay team, featuring Joe Hall, Rhody’s IC4A indoor 600 yard champion, in a spirited anchor leg, copped first place. Ray Dwyer, Manny Caetano, and Danny Cashman by turning in top times for their half mile tests enabled Hall to get away among the leaders on the final leg of the race. Rhode Island 93, Fordham 42 . . . May 2 It was Ram against Ram, on a wind swept Meade Field, but the Kingston version smoth- ered the guests from Fordham. Outstanding events were the two mile run in which Danny Cashman, Norm Monks, and Norm LaFlamme finished in that order for a Rhode Island sweep; Tony Roderick’s throw in the javelin, and Charlie Spielberg’s record leap in the high jump. Charlie set a new Rhode Island field record of 6 ' 334 " . The day was cold, but the spectators stayed to watch him clear height after height. It was on his last attempt that Spielberg made the jump that carved a niche for him in Rhode Island State College’s Hall of Fame. 160 Charlie Speilbcrg Rhode Island 98 V 2 , Springfield 36Vi May 9 With Bob “Bing” Miller. Ram weight star, clinching three first places in the hammer, the shot and the discus, Rhode Island completely dominated Springfield in a show of real power. Ebba Dahl, won both high and low hurdles, and Bill Bcnesch got off a leap of 23 ' % " to win the broad jump. This was one of the best col- legiate performances in the broad jump in the East. Rhode Island 77, Brown 58 . . . May 13 Rhody’s Rams splashed their way to a great triumph over a determined Brown team in a meet that was held under horrible conditions. Black, Cactano, Laflammc and Cameron via Brown A cloudburst fell on Brown Field just prior to the start of the meet. However, the meet was run off despite the sea of water that covered the track and runways of the field events. Brown started off well by winning the high hurdles and the hundred yard dash, but Rhode Island’s strength began to tell when Bob Black won the mile run and Doug Graham clinched third spot. Ebba Dahl was defeated by Ray Leeth in the high hurdle event. Roycc Criinmin, of Brown edged Joe Hall in the quarter mile run; however Hall returned to win the half mile event, with Danny Cashman running a close second. The biggest surprise of the meet was Charlie Spielberg’s first place tic in the high Laflammc leads Black and Cactano in mile run against Brown jump with Dick Phillips, Brown’s nationally famous high jumper. Both cleared 6 ' 4 " . With Charlie making it on his first try, while Phillips cleared on his last attempt. Spielberg’s perform- ance was remarkable, considering that he was suffering from bronchitis. Other Rams out- standing in this traditional meet were: Bob Corb and Nat Chase in the high hurdles; Bob Squadrito and Bruce Britton in the sprints; Manny Cactano, Frank Knight and Norm Monks who got the first three places in the two mile run; Bob Miller, first in the hammer and the shot; Art Carlin, second in the hammer and third in the shot behind Bernie Bernstein; Rob- ert Rowe, who won the discus with Roily Jen- kins placing third; Bill Bencsch who led Ray Dwyer and Bruce Britton in a clean sweep of 161 High Jumper Charlie Spielberg the broad jump; Ernie St. Louis who tied for third in the high jump, and Art Sherman, who tied for first in the pole vault. Yankee Conference Championships May 16 Capturing eight individual titles, and scoring in every event, the Rhode Island State College trackmen captured the inaugural Yankee Con- ference championship, held at Durham, New Hampshire. Rhode Island scored 79 points to clinch the win with New Hampshire finishing second with 43 )4 points. Maine slid into third spot with a total of 23 J a points ahead of Connecticut in fourth position with 19. Rain hampered the athletes, but the execution of the meet by the host team. New Hampshire, was superb. The following Rams won individual titles, thereby setting records for the meet: Ebba Dahl, high hurdles in 15.2, and the low hurdles in 24.3; (Bob Corb finished third in the high hurdles) Bob Miller, 16 pound shot, distance 45 ' 5 " ; (Ber- nie Bernstein finished third in the shot) ; Joe Hall, 440 yard dash, in 50.00, with Eliot Roberts finishing fourth; Manny Caetano, in the mile run with a 4:33.4 timing, leading Danny Cash- man and Doug Graham to the wire; Bob Black led Norm Monks, who displayed a great kick in beating Silas Dunklee, New Hampshire’s captain, in the two mile run with a timing of 9:38.1; Danny Cashman, in the 880 yard run in 1 : 59.9, leading both Joe Hall and Manny Caetano to the finish; Charley Spielberg in the high jump at 6 ' , with Bill Benesch tieing for second; Art Sherman, in the pole vault with a tic for first with Emerson of Maine, and Tom Miller getting third place. Sherman’s best ef- fort was 12 ' . Bill Benesch lost the broad jump- ing title to Lopes of New Hampshire by Y% of an inch. Lopes winning jump measured 21 ' 8)4 " . Rhody’s Bruce Britton salvaged a third place tie in this event. Tony Roderick nailed third place in the javelin throw, while Bob Squadrito finished fourth in the 220 yard dash. New England IntercoIIegiates May 23 Rhode Island State won five individual titles, tied for a sixth, scored in 10 of the 15 events and became New England Intercollegiate track champion by rolling up 45 points in the section- al meet at Brown Field. It marked the seventh time that Rhode Island State has won the N. E. crown. After a tense duel with Brown through the first half of the program, the Ram’s superior strength began to assert itself, and steadily the State score mounted until it had soared out of reach of all rivals. Brown, with three individual winners, finished in second place with 27 points, seven better than third place New Hampshire. The other totals were: Wesleyan 15, Holy Cross 12, M. I. T. 11 5 16, Springfield lD 3 , Maine 10, Boston College 3, Tufts 2)4, North- eastern 2, Connecticut 1)4, Bates, Boston Uni- versity, Williams and Worcester Tech 1 each. State’s hurdling star, Ed Dahl, retained his title in the ‘highs’, and added the low hurdle crown to his collection after a terrific last surge in the final 20 yards. Bob Black won the mile in 4 : 24, but the big thrill in this event was Doug Graham’s last lap kick that carried him from twelfth place into fifth, a half stride behind Nelson Horne of Bates. Joe Hall won the 880 yard run in the blistering time of 1 : 56.9, lead- ing Danny Cashman by two yards at the finish. Charlie Spielberg garnered second place in the high jump with a leap of 6 ' 2 " , and ‘Hard Luck’ Bill Benesch had to concede the broad jump title to his arch rival, Dick Lopes of New Hamp- shire, by 54ths of an inch. Lopes’ winning leap was 22T " . Art Sherman tied again with Bob Emerson, of Maine in the pole vault at 12 ' 6 " . Bob Miller placed first in the shot with a 46 ' - 10)4 " effort, second in the hammer throw with a heave of 171 ' 8)4 " , and fourth in the discus 162 Art Sherman 1948 IC4A Outdoor Pole Vault Champion throw with a scale of 12-9 ' 5}4 " . Bob Rowe of Rhode Island took second place in the discus with a throw of 132 ' 6 " . IC4A Championships . . . May 29 Coach Fred Tootell took six members of the squad to Randall’s Island for the Outdoor IC4A championships. Yale upset N. Y. U., the defend- ing champions, winning this collegiate classic with 35 points to the Violet’s 33. Michigan State came third with 2 1 J 2 points, with the Fighting Rams clinching fourth place by one- half a point over Princeton. Originally, Prince- ton was awarded fourth place with 17 points and Rhode Island fifth with 15 s points. How- ever, motion pictures of the finals of the 120 yard High Hurdles showed conclusively that Ebba Dahl had finished second instead of fourth as the officials decided when the race was com- pleted. This decision gave Rhode Island two more points which helped the little band of Kingston Kids to vault into fourth place. Horace Ashenfelter, Penn State flash, em- ployed different strategy than he had a month previous in the Penn Relays, when he jumped Bob Black just before the start of the seventh lap in the two mile run. This sprint carried Mai Williams Assistant Track Coach him 20 yards in front of the Jet, and though Black cut down the margin he was unable to catch the flying Keystone-stater. Bob Miller took third in the 16 pound hammer throw, and Joe Hall running in an all star final placed fourth in the 880 yard run. Art Sherman gave Rhode Island its only IC4A title when he was tied by John Eustis, Yale vaulter, in the pole vault at 13 feet. Joe Hall ran 1:55.3 for the 880, beating out the sensational Reggie Pearman for fourth place. Charlie Spielberg just missed placing in the high jump. New England AAU . . . June 12 The New England Outdoor AAU champion- ships were held at Brookline, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island State College athletes made their presence felt by giving a good account of them- selves in the various events. The tracksters com- peted as individuals rather than a team. Bob Black broke the American Citizen record in the six mile run. Joe Hall won the 880 crown with Sammy Levine finishing in third position. Ebba Dahl scored in the hurdles along with Bob Miller in the weights, while Art Sherman placed sec- ond in the vault behind Boo Morcom, New Hampshire’s star vaulter. 163 Bob Black National Collegiate Championships June 18 Coach Fred Tootell and Mrs. Tootell drove Rhode Island State College’s representatives to the Midwest in the family cars. Minneapo- lis, Minnesota was the first stop, and the site of the 1948 National Collegiate Track and Field championships. Bob Black, after a long auto- mobile trip, copped the National Collegiate 10,000 meter championship with a timing of 32:13.5. He led Vic Twomey of Illinois, by 300 yards, in winning his first National Col- legiate crown. Art Sherman pulled a major surprise when he cleared 13 ' 8 " in the pole vault. This was an increase of eight inches over his previous best vault. Warren Bateman of Col- orado and George Rasmussen tied for first in the vault at 14 feet. Harry Cooper of Minne- sota placed third with a leap of 13 ' 10 " . Art Sherman was in a four way tie with John Mont- gomery and Bob Hart of USC, and Bill Larsen of Stanford for fourth place. Bob Miller placed fourth in the 16 pound hammer throw behind Sam Felton of Harvard, George Marsankis, Maine star, and Jim Burnham of Dartmouth. By placing in the first six in each event these three Rams qualified for the Olympic Trial final. Joe Hall and Ebba Dahl went unplaced in their respective races. National Senior AAU Championships June 4 After the National Collegiate Meet Rhode Island State’s representatives journeyed to Mil- waukee, Wisconsin for the National Senior AAU Track and Field Championships. In this meet two of Rhody’s favorite tracksters bowed out of Intercollegiate competition. Little Joe Hall, who holds the Rhode Island State College rec- ord in the half mile, just missed a qualifying spot in the 880 by the slim margin of two feet. This was the IC4A indoor 600 yard champion’s final effort in behalf of Rhode Island State Col- lege track. Ebba Dahl, running with the best low hurdlers in the country, gained fifth place in the 220 yard low hurdle championship race. This proved to be his last race for Rhode Island, because, although placing in the first six, it was announced that the low hurdle event would not be held in the Olympic Trials. Bob Miller finished fourth in the hammer throw behind Henry Dreyer, ex-Rhode Island star. Leon Dumbrowski, who trained under Coach Tootell while on leave from the Air Force, also qualified for the Olympic Trials. This shows just how 164 good Coach Tootell is in coaching hammer throwers. Bob Black, Rhode Island’s chief hope for an Olympic berth, ran the Olympic 10,000 meter final in this meet. The race was run in a temperature of 101 degrees, and many of the favorites in the race fell by the wayside. At the three mile mark Coach Tootell waved Black off the track because the heat had weakened him badly. With this action Rhode Island’s last chance of qualifying a runner for the Olym- pics went by the board. When Black was weighed in after the race it was found that he had lost six pounds. Arthur Sherman failed to score in the pole vault, but was still qualified for the Olympic Trials by virtue of his place in the National Collegiates. July 10 . . . Final Olympic Track and Field Tryouts The Rhode Island State College Qualifiers for the Olympic Final Tryouts participated in the tests at Evanston, Illinois, before a sell-out crowd. In the hammer throw Bob Miller finish- ed in fifth place, just two positions away from qualifying. Henry Drcyer, one-time Ram great and 1936 Olympic team member in this same event, finished third and qualified for the team. Bob Bennett, ex-Brown and Maine star, won the event. Arthur Sherman, competing in the pole vault, finished out of the placing. After a shaky beginning the 1949 Rhode Island State College outdoor track team came along very fast. It rates as one of the best teams ever developed here at Kingston. Much credit should be given to Coaches Tootell and Williams for their untiring efforts. Rhode Island’s track teams and athletes have made their presence felt sectionally and nationally. Last, but not least, credit should be bestowed on those un- sung heroes of the track team — the managers. 165 VARSITY TENNIS The Rhode Island State College tennis team, under the capable direction of Coach Robert “Red” Haire, completed a highly successful sea- son during the spring and early summer of 1948. Although rained out of their scheduled open- ing match with Brown at Kingston, the Rams finally got rolling on April 20 against Bryant College and emerged with their first victory, 6-3. From that point on the State netmen racked up 8-1 verdicts over both Maine and Massachusetts before bowing to M.I.T., 7-2. The Rams then came back to blast Trinity, 9-0, and although cheated out of another chance at the Bears from Brown by the weatherman, the Rhode Islanders took it out on Holy Cross, 6-3. At Storrs, Connecticut, State emerged vic- torius over its other Yankee Conference rivals for the Y.C. crown. Don Gamble defeated his team mate, Dick Sargeson, for the Yankee Con- ference singles championship later during the year on the Kingston courts. The Gymnasts from Springfield topped the Rams in the next match, 7-2, and Connecticut turned in an upset by taking the Rhode Island- ers, 5-4, in a tightly contested match. State came back in its final match to humble Brown, 6-3, to wind up a successful year. SUMMARY R. I.

VARSITY GOLF Coach Paul Cieurzo’s 1948 golfers, although under the .500 mark at the conclusion of the season, showed a great deal of improvement in their last few matches of the year. The Rams launched their season at Quantico, Va., where they opposed the strong Quantico Flyers. George Conrad, the No. 1 man on Coach Cieurzo’s roster, was matched against his broth- er, a marine flyer. The Rams came out on the short end of a 6-0 score, but they picked up a great deal of experience. State dropped its next two matches to St. Joseph’s and Maine, but the Rams broke into the win column at the expense of Babson Insti- tute on April 30 by the score of 6-3. The next match with Trinity College was cancelled. The University of Connecticut’s Huskies took the Rams into camp in the following match, 5J4-3 2 , and the Hawks of St. Joseph’s upended the Rhode Islanders for the second time, 4-1. During the New England Intercollegiates held at Boston, the Rams placed seventh. Coach Cieurzo’s charges finally got together with the golfers from Trinity College on May 18, with the Rams winning out, 5-4, and start- ing on their winning streak which carried them through four matches. Amherst, Connecticut and Tufts fell victims to the Rams in that order, but the Bears from Brown prevented the Rams from ending their season on a happy note by taking the State putters, 5 2 -3 2. George Con- rad won the State Junior Golf Tournament later on in the summer. SUMMARY R. I.

Sal Sclafani Coach Keaney Coach Haire Kenny Goodwin 169 VARSITY BASKETBALL ( 1948 - 49 ) The 1948-49 basketball season marked the first time in 27 years that Frank W. Keaney was not guiding the Rams. Coach Keaney was succeeded by one of his former outstanding students, Robert “Red” Haire, ’28. Coach Haire accepted a tre- mendous task. Not only was Haire attempting to replace one of basketball’s most renown coaches, but the Rams were facing the toughest schedule in their history. R. I. State was to face Villanova, Holy Cross, and St. John’s in its first three games. All three opponents were rated as top quintets in the nation. At first it appeared that the “fast break” had slowed down. Keaney’s famous cry of “fast, fast, fast!” seemed to be forgotten. Even Co-Captains Sal Sclafani and Ken Goodwin could not equal their brilliance of last season. In the opener against Villanova the Rams were unable to pene- trate the ‘Cats’ defense and the Rhody shooting from outside was poor. The Main Liners won, 75-68, and this was the first unsuccessful debut for a State five in over 30 years. It was the same story in Boston Garden the night of Dec. 7. But here, the Rams faced the classy Holy Cross dribblers and they were thor- oughly trounced, 65-48. The play of the Cru- saders’ Kaftan, O’Connell, and Cousy could not be matched. Then, travelling to New York’s big Madison Square Garden, Little Rhody engaged its perennial rival, St. John’s. The Rams played poorly. Only for a short interval during the early moments of the second half did Rhode Island look like the Rhody of old. Led by Bruce Blount and John Mitchell, the Rams crept to within one point of the Redmen in the second half. But the quick-breaking drive soon petered out and R. I. had lost its first three games. The Rams had 19 games left and the question was: when would State win? The University of New Hampshire became State’s first victim. But the Wildcats were inferior and the initial victory was not impressive. State continued on the vic- tory trail by trouncing Brooklyn College and Maine. Goodwin’s play brought the team even in the win and lost column. This .500 percentage was soon broken as the Rhody dribblers invaded Storrs to meet a crack Uconn team. Hampered by excessive fouling by Goodwin, Sclafani, and Mitchell, the Rams were easily conquered by the Huskies. Again the Rhode Islanders were below .500. At this point in the campaign State appeared to find itself. A strong Rutgers team, led by big Bucky Hatchett, invaded Rodman Hall. But the Ready to Roll Rams displayed a better brand of basketball and ran the Scarlets into the floor. Leon Golem- biewski pl ayed brilliantly. He held Hatchett to eight points while scoring 18 himself. After an easy victory over Springfield, a good Brown team travelled to Kingston. This was the first game for the Rams for the mythical state championship. Co-Captains Sclafani and Good- win led the men in blue to a hard-fought win. They chipped in 20 and 1 7 points respectively as the Rams eked out a 68-61 victory over the Bruins. In the remaining 12 games, R. I. lost only to St. Joseph’s at Philadelphia and again to Holy Cross at the Auditorium in Providence. But even in defeat the Rams showed a vast improvement over their early season play. The men from Kingston won their last nine games in a row. In- cluded in their sweep were two ringing victories over Providence College, and revenge victories for earlier season defeats over St. Joseph’s and 172 We’ve Stopped Fiddling Around Connecticut, and finally, a sparkling victory over Brown at Marvel Gym. This final win gave R. I. State the mythical state crown for the fourth consecutive year. The Rams definitely reached their peak in this final encounter. Goodwin, Sclafani, Blount, Golem- biewski, Mitchell, and Don Shannon all played brilliantly. There was no individual stand-out. The team stood-out. Coupled with this fine team play was the coaching wisdom of Coach Hairc. With seven minutes remaining in the ball game, Haire advised his boys to employ a “fake freeze.” This strategy fooled the Bruins, forced them to press for the ball because they were behind, and resulted in leaving big Goodwin unguarded under the Hoop. Goodwin dropped in easy game- clinching baskets. The Brown victory was a masterpiece. It was a combination of spirited team play and shrewd coaching. This final game of 1949 also ended the outstanding play of seniors Goodwin and Scla- fani in a State uniform. They will be sorely missed next season. 173 John Mitchell, Sal Sclafani, Ken Goodwin, Walt Baslcr, Don Shannon Bill Shannon VARSITY BASKETBALL R. I.

All three defeats were suffered on foreign courts, although the return game with Providence Col- lege at Rodman Hall was a real thriller all the way. The Ramlets finally won out in this game, 72-67, and they avenged a previous humiliating defeat by the Friars at the Auditorium, 77-56. The other two defeats suffered by the State yearlings were administered by Connecticut at Storrs early in January, and Holy Cross in Prov- idence a month later.

The starting five of Chuck Stewart, Jerry Ferrara, Fred Congleton, Walt Dalbey and Ed Hole showed a great deal of promise as a future varsity unit. All five demonstrated a great deal of shooting accuracy and Stewart’s blazing speed and playmaking ability pleased the Rodman fans no end. The remaining four all excelled in re- bounding also.

Over the season the Rams were rained out of no less than four contests (New Hampshire, Brown, Massachusetts and Providence College) . This particular season wound up a brilliant 27-year record for Coach Kcaney in the coaching world, a record that saw the old master guiding his charges to twice as many victories as defeats on the diamond. Keancy was succeeded as head varsity baseball mentor by Vic Palladino, ex- Boston College football star, who took over dur- ing the 1949 season. In the season’s opener against Vermont, April 16 at Kingston, the Rhode Islanders walked off with a richly deserved 4-1 triumph behind the masterful flinging of big John Smith, State’s num- ber one hurler. Big Smitty ended up the year with five victories as against three losses. The Rams pinned back the ears of the Maine Black Bears in their second start, 5-1, at Kingston, and then the State nine trounced Providence College in the Friars’ own back yard, 10-3, to run the streak to three. The hard-hitting Boston College Eagles pounced upon righthander Bruce Blount at Kingston April 26 for seven big runs while righthander Steve Stuka blanked the Rams and held them practically hitless. The Rhode Islanders climbed back onto the victory trail on the first day in May by eking out a hard-earned 3-0 verdict over the Connecticut Huskies. Big Smitty was the winning pitcher, spacing out eight Uconn hits over the route. But the Boston College nemesis cropped up again and the Rams were handed an 8-0 pasting up in Boston on May 4. Smith was roundly stroked by the big bats of the Eagles and charged with his first loss of the season. Maine’s Black Bears fell at Orono, Me., to the tune of 4-1, and the Rams followed this with a trip to Storrs, Conn, with hopes of taking the Huskies in tow once more. But the Uconns had other plans as they got to Smith for five big runs, enough to win out, 5-3. Brown University’s Bruins added insult to in- jury by taking the Rhode Islanders at Kingston in the next game and the only meeting of the two clubs all year, 7-3. The next day, May 20, saw the Rams edge out Coast Guard Academy, 4-3, to give Blount his only pitching victory of the year. Ed Becker was the hero of that game when he stole home in the last of the ninth. State took New Hampshire in their only meet- ing of the year when they skinned the Wildcats at Meade Field, and the Rams wound up their season by splitting a doublchcader with Spring- field. 179 VARSITY BATTING AVERAGES Name G AB R H BB SB AV.

Paced all year by the strong right pitching arm of Bob Underhill and the equally strong right arm of one Mr. Joe Malikowski at short, the Ramlets came from behind more than once to cinch a decision in the late innings. Malikowski, along with center fielde r Ira Mur- phy, did most of the heavy stickwork for Coach Paul F. Cieurzo’s diamond dusters. Cieurzo re- placed Coach Bill Beck as tutor of the Frosh after the latter suffered a severe back injury and was forced to temporarily give up coaching. Judging from the opinion of a great many observers, Cieurzo did better than a fair job in handling the Ramlets. The State yearlings opened their season by dropping a 6-3 verdict to Brown on April 28, but they recovered and came back to hand the Uconn Huskies a 1-0 defeat despite a lack of hits. The Rhode Islanders were rained out of their next two games with Leicester Junior College and Dean Academy, but they returned to the dia- mond wars with a 6-1 victory over the Providence College Friars, May 1 1, at Meade Field. The Ramlets smeared Brown in the return game, 12-0, were rained out again by the per- sistent weatherman in the second match with P.

The Ramlets closed out their season in grand style, however, when they journeyed to Coach Cieurzo’s old alma mater (Dean Academy) and handed the home forces another defeat, 2-1. This was a closely-fought pitchers’ duel, with Underhill hopked up with the Academy’s ace righthander. The State Frosh pulled it out of the fire in their half of the ninth inning. 182 INDOOR TRACK The Rhode Island State College indoor track team competed in all of the big time meets in the 1949 season. Opening up with the Washing- ton Star Relays, January 12, the team competed in the following meets: Knights of Columbus, Boston; Melrose Games, New York; BAA, Bos- ton; New York AC, New York; New England AAU, Boston; National AAU, New York; IC4A, New York; New York Knights of Columbus, New York. Rhode Island was represented on the boards by the following men; 60 yard dash, Bill Benesch, Alton Wiley and Bob Squadrito; 600 yard run, Sam Levine; mile and 1000 yards, Danny Cash- man, Larry McLay and Johnny Johnson; high jump and broad jump, Bill Benesch; two mile run, Bob Black and Norm Monks; pole vault, Arthur Sherman; hurdles, Nat Chase, Jack Bul- leit, Howard Nicholson, and Bob Corb, and in the 35 lb. weight throw the Ram had Ed McNulty and Don Sprague. The season was highlighted by Bill Benesch’s second place in the NEAAU broad jump; the one mile relay team’s victory in the Yankee Con- ference mile relay, and Danny Cashman’s bril- liant effort in the 1000 yard runs. Art Sherman placed in every m eet in the pole vault. Most worthy notice must go to his second place in the IC4A meet, (13 ' 8 " ), and his third place in the National AAU meet. Bob Black had a hard time of it in the early meets, but finished the season in grand style by winning the IC4A 2 mile run. He completed the campaign by running second in the New York KC meet 2 mile run in 9 : 09. This time is believed to be the fastest ever turned in by a collegian for the distance on the boards. 183 184 1st row: P. Lennon, R. Dwyer, S. Levine, G. Mona. 2nd row: N. Laflamme, B. Black, D.

In their first meet of the season State’s cross- country team had little difficulty in beating Springfield. The team this year was composed of veterans of last year’s New England Championship team including Bob Black, Norm Monks, Hugh Cam- eron, Neil Barney, Frank Knight, George Mona, and Norm Laflamme. Dan Cashman returned to the squad along with newcomers Larry McLay, George Mona 186 Ray Dwyer Rhode Island 16 Octobei Bob Black again led the way as State’s har- riers copped their second victory by defeating Fordham here at Kingston. Black who holds the course record here at 19:57.2, coasted home in front of the pack in 21:03.7. Norm Monks edged out Danny Cashman for third place honors with Larry McLay in second position. The team was again prevented from making a perfect score when Norm Laflamme was beaten by John Lynch of the visitors for fifth place. Larry McLay Fordham 47 9, 1948 Ray Dwyer, aggravated an old injury and had to drop out of this race. It was feared that he would be through for the season. Order of Finish: R. .

This race indicated that Black had lost none of the speed with which he won the New England championship. The race was run over the same New England Intercollegiate course which Black ran 22:29 on last year to win the race. The time for this race was 21:32. This victory for R.

Rhode Island 23 Brown 38 Placing five men among the first seven, State added Brown to its list of victims. Black came in about three minutes before the second place runner, and people were be- ginning to think that he must have taken a short- cut. Although Black cut nearly 800 yards off the course, he was still declared the winner. State’s next man to finish was Larry McLay who came in fourth, behind the Tobey brothers from Brown. This was State’s fourth consecutive victory for the season. 188 Sam Levine R. I.

This race marked the end of dual meet com- petition for the Rams who next ran at the New England Intercollegiate Championship at Cam- bridge. Dan Cashman, Norm Monks and Larry Mc- Lay finished in a tie for second place. Frank Knight who had been bothered with knee trouble throughout the early part of the season, showed signs of regaining his old form as he finished fifth for Rhody.

New England Intercollegiate Championship Rhode Island State Winner With 51 Points It was Bob Black again who paved the way for the Blue and White Harriers as he won his third consecutive New England Championship. Black’s time of 21 minutes 26.2 seconds was more than a minute faster than his winning time of a year ago. After a quarter of a mile Black had nearly a 50 yard lead over Ted Vogel, who later finished third. Rhody’s first five men all finished within the first twenty places to easily annex the crown. Danny Cashman came home in seventh place, followed by Norm Monks, 10th, Larry McLay, 15th, Frank Knight, 20th, Elliot Roberts, 29th, and Norm Laflamme, 30th. This was Rhode Island’s fifth consecutive vic- tory of the New England Intercollegiatcs and its tenth in the last thirteen years. R. . Black 1 Cashman 2 Conn. Rubin 8 Bray 9 189 Paul Lennon Black Takes IC4A Crown Breaking his own record by over a half min- ute, Bob Black won his second consecutive IC4A cross-country championship in the remarkable time of 25 minutes and four tenths of a sec- ond. Although Black repeated last year’s victory over Horace Ashenfelter of Penn. State, Mich- igan State romped away with the team cham- pionship. Black let Ashenfelter set the pace until the half way mark before taking over, to win by 200 yards. As one sports writer puts it, “Black runs as if he owns the course.” It was one of the finest fields in the long history of the IC4A and it took fast going to finish in the first fifty. There were nearly 200 starters and over 25 colleges finished full teams. Dan Cashman was again Rhode Island’s sec- one man as he finished 23rd. Larry McLay came in 24th followed by Norm Monks 51st, Frank Knight 57th, Neil Barney 74th and Norm La- flamme 80th. This meet marked the finish of cross country for 4 of State’s team who are seniors, namely, Cashman, Monks, Laflamme, and Knight. Black, N.C.A.A. Winner Bob Black broke Gregg Rice’s nine year-old record as he won the National College A. A. Cross country Championship in 19:52.3. His nearest competitor was Don Gehrman of Wisconsin who finished 75 yards in back of Black for second place. Last year in this race Bob was hindered by the snow, but this year under perfect running conditions he easily outclassed the field. Black was given a warm welcome on his re- turn home to Kingston by over 400 of the stu- dent body. Athletic Director Frank W. Kcaney was one of the first to congratulate the surprised and slightly embarrassed speedster. Coach Tootell had high praise for Black in a short speech in front of Lippitt Hall. Black Nips Stone by Inches to Win National A.A.U. Cross Country Crown In one of the most incredible foot races ever run, Bob Black edged out Curt Stone by inches to win the 10,000 meter (6)4 mile) A.A.U. grind. Black and Stone ran side by side for nearly six miles of the race before Stone started to pull away. With only 500 yards to the finish, Stone had a good 10 yard lead on Black. At this stage Black thought he’d get second, but not content without victory, Black put on one final spurt which carried him across the line inches ahead of Stone. Black’s time for this race, which gave him the season triple crown in cross-country, was 30:02. 190 191 Sitting: Betty Connaughton, Sam Hall, Candy Reynolds. Standing: Dick Soderberg, Dave Macaulay.

But the normality soon turned into an era of abnormality as the rush of returning veterans, taking im- mediate advantage of the G.I. Bill offered by the government as part of its debt to its warriors, soon be- 193 gan to swell the enrollments of the colleges. Rhode Island State’s student body, which had hovered around the one thousand mark before the war, multiplied itself to twice that amount with the largest freshman class in its history, and the return of the men whose education had Albert Abramovitz ae n Science, Pre-Medical 17 Burnside Ave., Newport Justin E.

Class of 1949 195 ties, however, without the same restrictions to hurdle, were in full swing.

Class of 1949 197 That year also saw the inception of another school project. Shortly after the opening of school in September, a Student War Memorial Union Committee was formed with the project being highly endorsed by Honorary Alumnus J. Howard McGrath. Plans for the proposed 198 Elaine Alice Barry ERH Science, Teacher Training 101 Whitford Avc., Providence Raymond William Barry General Business Portland, Maine Union were published in the Beacon, appeals were sent to alumni and friends of the college, and funds began to roll in. Among the new members of the faculty were Dr. W.

Nearly three hundred couples danced to the music of Elliot Lawrence and his orchestra. Pat Kennedy was chosen queen and also received her diamond engagement ring dur- ing the same evening. 301 Queen Lois Ibbotsen The Aggie Bawl Lippitt Hall, decorated appropriately and elaborately, was the scene of the first major dance of the year — the famed Aggie Bawl. It was held on October 11 so that everyone was able to catch up on lost sleep the following day. Gen- eral chairman of the affair was Bob Hindle who with his committees did a grand job of making the Bawl successful. All the animals didn’t detract attention from a bevy of beauties who vied for the title of Aggie Queen. At the dance, Lois Ibbotson was ac- claimed the winner and was presented with a beautiful trophy. Ernie George and his orchestra satisfied the requests for good dance music. 302 The Soph Hop Queen Irene Brusi The typical Kingston weather didn’t mar the- good time had by all who attended the Soph Hop on November 10. Pat Nappi, class social chairman, and his committees were responsible for a very successful dance. Music was supplied by Ralph Stuart’s orchestra. Decorations at the dance were pretty; half of the floor was set up to give the Hop a cabaret atmosphere. The feature of the evening was the selection of a Soph Hop Queen. The lucky girl was Irene Brusi, East Hall’s candidate, who was presented with a beautiful trophy and a crown of recognition. 304 ISmCOME RLUMN [Al UMNi.

Festivities began -on Friday night, November 5, with a hangup pep rally which started with a Torchlight Parade at Edwards Hall and featured the band, numerous posters, and beautiful floats. Ceremonies led by Asher Melzer were conducted in the field next to A.E. Pi fraternity. Flonored speakers were Presi- dent Woodward, Coaches Beck, Keaney, and Tootell, and the Mayor of Kingston, Iggy Bailey. First place award for the best display of the evening was presented to Delta Zeta, with Alpha Xi Delta a close runner up. Our cheer- leaders, with the help of the largest rally turn- out in years, cheered our Rhody Rams on until their lungs gave out. Bright and early on Saturday, November 6, each housing unit was busily raking lawns and putting the final touches on their Homecoming Displays. And they really were superb! The judging committee found it difficult to select the winners, but someone had to win. Honors of the day went to Theta Chi and Sigma Kappa. Congratulations on a grand job, and that goes for the team too. The game against the Connec- ticut Huskies was a grand end to a great foot- ball season for Rhody. The R. I. Club sponsored a novel Carnival Dance in Lippitt Hall Saturday Evening. Alumni and undergrads alike enjoyed them- selves to the utmost having fun and dancing to the music of Jim Maher’s orchestra. Sigma Kappa Sorority Winner Lambda Chi Alphs The All Star lineup Mayoralty Campaign Campus politics were in full swing on March 19, 1948, as six roaring candidates vied with each other for the title of Mayor of Kingston. Campaigning by each of these six aspirants was still at a high tempo as the voters flocked to the polls. Promises such as these were made : a “straight from the shoulder” administration by “Big Ben” Benevenuti; a razing of Ranger, Davis, Quinn, and Edwards to provide parking space by Count Alec von Voight; more fight for the new men’s dorm and the execution of the new Union by Colonel Swede Anderson; and the death of “Hip- pendale Hair” avowed by Fearless Northdick (Ken Northup). “Joltin Joe” Ostigny, last years mayor, was not greeted enthusiastically. It seems he failed to fulfill his former campaign promises and the voters just wouldn’t listen to him. Better dishwater in the Lower Caf at lower prices and a three o’clock night for girls. These last went over with a bang ( probably from “Big Ben”) for Iggy Bailey was elected the Mayor of Kingston amid wild shouts and cheers. 306 I Mayor Iggy Bailey dances as thousands cheer The Count arrives! May Queen Anna Petrarca May Day The annual May Day Festival sponsored by the Women’s Athletic Association took place in 1948 on the lawn in front of Green Hall. Following a colorful procession, led by the girls of the senior class carrying chains of laurel leaves, Anna Petrarca mounted the steps to her throne from which she watched the dances. Her court consisted of the ten seniors who had received the next highest vote of the stu- dent body. They were: Joan Butler, Norma Carroll, Joyce Ann Dawley, Trudy Famum, Jean Hoyle, Ann Nixon, Joy Palm, Marian Sund- quist, Nancy Waite and Alice Wallander. With an early American festival as a theme, the freshmen presented appropriate folk dances including square dances, a minuet, a schottische, and an original Indian dance. The traditional Maypole dance was put on by the sophomores with the assistance of a little brown dog. Committee chairmen in charge of arranging the program were : Janice Hayden, general chair- man; Pat Grant, publicity; Ginny Reid, cos- tumes; Nonie Berlow, music; Helen McGuigan, ushers; Gloria Guisti, folk dance; Phebe Hof- ford, maypole dance; Betty Fletcher, programs; Ruth Jenison, staging; Phyllis Johnson, modem dance; and Cecilia Gouveia, properties. The Misses Lillian Nardone, Dorothy Massey, and Barbara O’Brien were faculty advisors. 308 The 1948-1949 Music Series Vienna Boys Choir Iva Kitchell Silvia Zaremba Colonel Audrey Kenyon MILITARY BALL The local R.O.T.C. unit found itself under the jurisdiction of a lovely new commanding officer when Alpha Xi Delta’s Audrey Kenyon was voted Co-ed Colonel at the annual Military Ball held on the eve of Washington’s birthday. Miss Kenyon was duly commissioned Colonel and new co-ed honorary commandant in a ceremony conducted by Scabbard and Blade, the military society on Campus. The first official act of the “Colonel” was to initiate twenty-nine new members of Scabbard and Blade. After she had dubbed them members at a special ceremony, they kissed their partners and danced around the hall which was decorated with massed flags. A historic display showing the evolution of the American Flag was the fea- ture of the dance. 312 ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Any enumeration of people to whom the Board of the 1949 GRIST would like to express its gratitude would be incomplete.
