-V RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE KINGSTON, RHODE ISLAND presents 74e threat for nineteen fifty zad ' Dedication , the graduating class of 1950, do hereby dedicate this booh to you, the student body at Rhode Island State College, in the express hope that the theme of our yearbook - College Life - will convey to you the essence of this school which is, we feel, too often unrecognized by the undergraduate student. It ' s trite but true to say that college is what you make it. Here is your college and here are your possibilities for four years at livii ig on Rhody’s campus. Take full advantage of all the facilities and initiate yourself info the realm of those who are fully rounded, vital persons. M j 1 9 ' " r ' i V % « 1 The Class Advisors Message TO THE Cl ASS OF FIFTY: As graduation brings you to the end ot your four-year college career, it is well to re- flect a little on the impact of your presence here. Yours is, of course, the largest gradu- ating class in the history of the college. It was because of you and for you that great expan- sion in facilities and in staff were undertaken. Many of you have been able to attend school only because of considerable sacrifice and with a measure of personal inconvenience and hardship which at times has tempted you to give up on your effort. But in spite of many vicissitudes, you have come through to the successful completion of your objective. Your departure leaves a void that will indeed be difficult to fill. You have contributed much to your alma mater, and those of 11s who re- main behind hope that each of you will carry some part of the college with you. You leave the campus with a great and grave responsibility. The second half of the Twentieth Century can see the fulfillment of men ' s dreams of a safe and secure world, or it can see the total devastation of the world and the destruction of modern civilization. The management of the next half century is in your hands. Yours is a task of tremendous magnitude. I know that you will succeed. John O. Stitfi.y I Books are men oj higher stature; the only men that speak aloud for f uture times to hear. — Barr ii Wi!iIi!?!!Hi1 The President ' s Message Board of Trustees of Stale Colleges Francis I.

Senc n CLASS OF 1950 The fall of 1946 witnessed the largest regis- tration of students at Rhode fsland State Col- lege with t he undergraduate body exceeding 1800. With the entrance of the class of 1950 the college began to return to pre-war status as the fraternities reopened and additional housing units were established, such as ' ' Hut City " anti the “Chicken Coops. " We were indocrinated into the social life of the campus by the Aggie Bawl, Soph Hop and Sigma Kappa Barn Dante. Recreational facilities were now supplied by the new tempo- rary Union composed of Quonset huts. Joe Ostigny, running under the auspices of the Hut Association, became our first “Mayor of Kingston. " " WHOE. 550 on your dial. " became a reality as the radio network gained official recognition. A member of our class, Fran Welch was chosen Co-ed Colonel of the Mil Ball. Ray Dwyer was elected to lead the class as President; Hope Lennon. Vice-President; Bob Gammcl, Treasurer; Jean Stump, Secretary, and Janies Francis, Social Chairman. In anticipation of the new buildings, which we have seen become a reality, a mass assembly and torcli-light parade was held to open the campus campaign for an increased building program. rite return of Red Haire to his alma mater, as assistant coach to Frank Keaney in basket- ball and tennis heralded a new era in sports, l ' lte Inter-House Sing cup was won by Delta Zcta and Phi Mu Delta. Under the guidance of Adam Wisniewski, President; Ann Randall. Vice-President; Don Cole, Treasurer; Nancy Spencer, Secretary; Ray Dwyer, Social Chairman; we entered our second year with the sophistications of old sophomores. The Soph Hop entertained the campus with a name band, Skitch Henderson, and Wissy Armstrong reigned as queen. The faculty con- tributed to the Memorial Student Union Fund with the presentation of the " Faculty Follies, " which netted $1200 to the fund. Again a member of our class became Co-ed Colonel. This distinction went to Sally Kele- her. The resignation of our renowned Coach Keaney in the fall of our Junior year, ended his long profitable career as basketball coach. His brand of " fast break” basketball made the Keaney blue teams famous all over the coun- try. More recognition in the sports world was achieved by “record shattering” Bob Black, as he captured the National Cross Country Triple Crown. The dream of a new gym became almost real with the passage of the Gym-Amory Bill. The Class Officers for our Junior year were: Ernie St. Louis. President: Mary DeLuca, Vice-President; Sally Keleher, Secretary; Eddie Nans, Treasurer; Joe Duggan, Social Chair- The long-awaited construction of two men’s dorms began in December, and in July ground was broken for the new chemistry building. The members of our class who gained mem- bership in Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities were: Bob Black. Ray Dwyer, Sally Keleher, Betty O ' Don- nell. Ernie St; Louis, and Joyce Stockton. Betty O’Donnell reigned as queen of the Junior Prom at the Sheraton-Biltmore and Charlie Barnett’s Orchestra supplied the Another exciting campaign for “Mayor of Kingston” was climaxed with the election of George “Pinhead " Pinhiero. Ann Randall and Betty O ' Donnell were elected for presidency in the W.A.A. and W.S.G.A.. respectively. The student body presented the Rhody Re- view, a variety show, to contribute to the Me- morial Student Union Fund. Sigma Kappa and Beta Psi Apha became the possessors of the Inter-House Sing cups for the following year. Our last year on campus witnessed the arrival of the first freshmen class with a minority of veterans. The Aggie Club was proud to crown a member of the Agricultural School, Jeanne Burke, as queen of the Aggie Bawl. School spirit broke forth at the Home- coming Rally with the first actual float parade. A huge bonfire in the middle of the quad- rangle climaxed the activities. Jack “Super” Bulleit was the victor in the race lor “Mayor of Kingston.” The Student Senate moved smoothly along under the direction of President Bill Hartnett; Vice-President Ernest St. Louis, and Secretary Dorothy McKenna. The resignation of Coach Bill Beck as mentor of the football squad was accepted late in the fall. The men ' s dorms were finally ready for oc- cupancy and rapid progress was made on the construction of the chemistry building. In December the Faculty Follies was again presented to the delight of the student body. Harold Kopp, Yale line coach, accepted the job as new football coach at Rhody. Reflecting upon the happy four years, we entered into the gayeties of Senior Week tem- pered with the realization of the future. Joyce Stockton Robert M. Abisch General Business 56 Mount A vc..

Also giving honor by his presence at the banquet was Coach Frank Keaney, who estab- lished R. I. S. C. as a power in basketball. His talk held the attention of all and was great- ly enhanced by his original poems, which were both amusing and instructive. The " Mente” will remain as one of the R. I. Club ' s guest speakers for many years. Homecoming Day for the past two years has been climaxed by the R. I. Club Alumni Car- nival Dance. This event, which will be an annual affair, is enjoyed not only by those who like to dance, but also by those who are at- tracted by the booths set up in carnival style in one-half of the hall. Of the ten various booths, basketball and two putting greens proved to be the most popular. A total of pants throughout the evening. This year as guest speaker at its banquet, the R. I.

The season of 1949 found him trying to repeat his cross- country grand slam, but an injury to the pcc- toralis muscle brought on cramps which caused him to lose to lesser lights jn the IC4A and National AAU Meets. He did manage to win the New England Intercollegiate Crown, and in so doing set a record of four consecutive victories in the event. Running in severe pain he showed his heels to the best in the country by winning the National Intercol- legiate Championship Cross-Country run. held at Lansing, Michigan. This was the greatest cross-country comeback in foot-racing history. Bob Black is for all his fame just a regular young man. He has made a host of friends on campus. The ovation given to him at the Kingston Railroad Station, when he returned from winning the National Inter-Collegiate cross-country run in 1918. rivalled anything like it that had been done before. Black ' s popularity on the campus earned him election into the Sachems, the senior honor society, and selection into Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges for 1948 and 1949. He has been named All-America Cross-Country and 10.000 meter All American for three years. All of these honors have come to a young man who four years ago first donned the Baby Blue of Rhode Island and placed himself under the guidance of Fred Tooiell. From an obscure freshman in 1910 to the most famous figure on Rhode Island Slate College ' s campus in 1949. That ' s the record set by Bob.

BASEBALL Schedule Boston College Away 256 The Rams, playing under a new varsity coach, “Vic” Palladino, opened their 1949 sea- son with a 7-6 (12-inning) victory over Brown at Kingston. After Brown had taken a 5-0 lead in the second inning Jack Smith relieved Bruce Blount and pitched 4-hit ball the re- mainder of the game. The Rams tied the score in the ninth and in the twelfth pushed over a run to win the game. Sal Vento was the hero as his perfect squeeze bunt allowed Bill Heffernan to score the winning run. Maine ' s seasonal debut was spoiled as the Rams paraded 5 runs in the seventh inning and went on to win 9-2. Three Maine hurlers made it easy for the Rams, allowing 10 hits and giving up 10 walks. Our next two games were bitter pills to swallow, as we lost them both, one to Con- necticut 4-3 in ten innings and one to Provi- dence College 4-2. In spite of collecting 14 hits the Uconns had to depend on Rhode lapses to eke out a one-run victory. Providence College ' s ace southpaw, Tom Keenan, held the Rams to 6 hits and two runs while his mates were collecting 4 runs off two Rhode Island hurlers. Errors proved costly for Rhode Island as the visitors collected two unearned runs. Sophomore Bob Underhill won his first varsity game as he pitched the Rams to an easy 12-1 over Lowell Textile at Kingston. A spirited Rhody team went to Storrs and avenged their setback the week after by shel- lacking Connecticut 9-0. Jack Smith pitched the shutout, giving up only 4 hits. He was in trouble only in the ninth inning when he gave up 2 of the four hits. Shortly after the victory over Connecticut Ed Becker R. I.

The Rams defeated Bates at Lew- iston easily, 7-0. Bruce Blount duplicated Jack Smith when he shut out Bates, giving up only ' 1 hits. The very next day Milkonian turned in a hne pitching performance, giving up only 2 hits against Maine at Orono. The Rams won easily. 9 1. The following day at New Hampshire the Rams jumped to an early lead and then out- lasted the Wildcats, 9-4. Ray Mansolillo suf- fered a badly sprained ankle sliding into home and had to be carried from the field. At home again and rested after their road trip the Rams turned in the New England collegiate baseball upset of 1949 when they snapped Boston College ' s 1 0-game winning streak, 4-1. Capt. John Smith, State ' s star submarine bailer, pitched five-hit ball and set 10 of the Eagles down on strikes. He struck out the side in the fifth inning. Third base- man Buck McSweeney led the Ram attack with two hits in four trips and three stolen Bob Underhill won his second game for Rhode Island, allowing only 6 hits as the Rams downed Massachusetts 9-4. The Rams stole 10 bases, a new record for them this season. Buck McSweeney, Joe Malikowski and Ira Murphy led an 1 1-ltit attack with 2 hits apiece. Rhode Island ran their victory string to 8 as they rolled over New Hampshire at Meade Field. 9-3. Clutch hitting and fancy base- running again paved the way to victory. Joe Malikowski got 3 hits including a double, and drove in 3 runs. Bill Hclfernan stole 4 bases, and A1 Johnson stole home. Hal Malkonian went the route scattering 8 hits. 258 Springfield snapped Rhode Island ' s eight- gamc winning sireak at Springfield, 54 in 13 innings. With the score tied 4-4 at the end ot nine innings it took a long triple to left to break up the game in the 13th inning. Both teams played good heads-up ball and deserved Rebounding from their deicat at Spring- field the Rams routed Brown 19-5 at Aldrich Field. Buck McSweeney led a 17-hit attack with 1 hits while Malikowski and Johnson had three apiece. Brown replaced their entire first team but could not halt the Ram onslaught. The Rams remained on the road traveling to Newton to play Boston College who had lost only one game — to Rhode Island. While John Smith hurled steady seven-hit ball Joe Malikowski paced the Rams with 3 hits — one a 380-ft. home run. The final score— 7-3, Rhode Island. Kelley slides back safely. Becker tries to beat out a ground ball to short. At home again the Rams played a tough Springfield team. The Rams lost an early 5- run lead and had to score 2 runs in the ninth to win 9-8. Blount and Becker both hit long triples to spark the Rams in the late innings. Rhode Island ended their baseball season by tlefeating the Providence College Friars 6- 1 at Providence. John Smith pitched his last collegiate game. He allowed 7 hits and got 10 strikeouts while walking one. The Rams won the game in the first inning when Mali- kowski homered with McSweeney aboard. The season ' s record for the Rhode Island Rams was I I victories and 3 defeats. They won the state collegiate baseball championship with a record of 3-1. The Rams nailed down the Yankee Conference pennant with a record of 6-1. They were the only team to defeat the powerful Boston College Eagles, who repre- sented New England in the N. C. A.

R. I. S. C. Rifle Team The R. I. S. C. Rifle Team, firing for its fourth year in the New England College Rifle League, finished this past year in fourth place in the Southern Section with a record of two wins and three losses. The wins were over Connecticut and W. P. I. anti the losses were to Brown. Massachusetts, and the Coast Guard Academy. In their postal matches with colleges all over the country and Hawaii the team broke about even. In these matches the targets are fired at in the respective ranges anti the results ex- changed by mail. The rifle team this year, firing under the coaching of Sgt. 1st Class Burl Baker, is show- ing great improvement and promise. Robert Duval. Roger Wilder, and Sheldon Hockman have been consistently filing 270 out of a pos- sible 300 for three position — prone, kneeling and standing — to qualify for the National Rifle Association Expert Marksman rating. The officers elected by the rifle team are: Captain Ken Avery Manager Paul Lennon 26 1 m [Nf OUTDOOR TRACK Yankee Conference For the third straight year Rhode Island reigned over the state colleges and universities in New England. Scoring in fourteen of the fifteen events, Rhode Island had little trouble in retaining their conference title. The broad jump once again was the big factor in victory. Chuck Varney won the event with a jump of 21 feet. 10 inches estab- lishing a new record, he was closely followed by Hill Benesch and Art Sherman for a total of 10 points. The Rams set two more records before the meet ended with Sherman breaking his own record in the pole vault and Cashman break- ing his record in the 880. Rhode Island added three more first places to its credit when Rowe won the discus. Bob Black the two mile run and Larry McLay the one mile run. A bad accident in the trials hurt Rhodv ' s chances of scoring. Ray Dwyer fell in the low hurdle race and was badly cut. He tried to run again in the aft ernoon but the loss of blood made him too weak. When the final tabulations were made. Rhode Island had 01} , points in second place was New Hampshire with 17 j4 points, third Connecticut with 33 points and in fourth place Maine with 23 points. Sherman clears 13 feet. Slim Rodeiick and Bangor the team mascot. Brown Brown entered Kingston the favorites of the meet, the first time in many years. The out- come of the day. however, proved that dip- pings do not win irack meets, the Rams won 76 to 59. Two races provided excitement for the spec- tators, the -HO and 880. In the 1 10 Jon d obey nipped Ray Dwyer at the tape for the closest finish of the day. Rat ' s right arm was still heavily bandagetl from his fall in the Yankee Conference Meet. The other close one came with Dan Cashm an nosing out Jon Tobey in the last few yards of the 880, his time was One of the biggest surprises of the meet came in the pole vault. Art Sherman didn ' t bother to jump as a four way tie for first place existetl between Kenyon. Miller, DiMaio and Reilly all of Rhode Island. The sweep in the broad jump and the two first and two secontls in the sprints were the main factors in the Rams dumping the favored Bruins. New England Intercollegiates Although the New England Championship remained in Rhode Island it changed schools. Brown took to]) honors with a total of 33J4 263 264 points with Rhode Island State 11 points be- hind in second place. I ' hc team managed to lake three individual titles which helps to clean our slate a little. Bob Black turned in the best performance of the meet with a fast timing in the two mile run, his time was 9:29.6 just 6 tenths of a sec- ond oil the record. Art Sherman won the pole vault and also took second in the broad jump to become the team ' s highest scorer. The third first place tame in the broad jump with Bill Benesch winning the event with a leap of 22 feet. 2 inches. The 880 which was the closest race of the day (ountl Dan (ashman being edged out of first by inches. Bill Onley of M. I. T. just managed to catch Dan at the tape. IC4A Championships Traveling to Randall ' s Island. New York to compete for the Rams were our two out- standing trackmen, Bob Black and Art Sher- man. These two men represented the school in the pole vault and the two mile run. Bob look second in the two mile behind Horace Ashenfeltcr who set a new record of 9:09.2. Bob stayed with Horace all the way but because ol a better kick Ashenfeltcr was able to pull away from Bob in the last few In the pole vault Art tied with Neil King of Yale for first place. It looked for a moment that Art would win but he knocked the cross- bar oil on the way down on his try at 1 3 feet, 6 inches. National Collegiates Blot k and Sherman journeyed west to com- pete in the nation ' s top collegiate track meet. They both did well with Bob taking third in the two mile and Art a tie for fourth in the pole vault. The two mile again was won by Ashenfelter with Drexler second and Bob a close third, the time was 2 tenths of a second faster than the IC4A meet. Art Sherman made the best vault of his ca- reer clearing 13 feet, 8 inches. Although he tied for fourth it proved that Art is one of the country ' s best vaulters. National AAU In this meet Bob competed in two races and scored in both. He was second in the 10,000 meters and third in the 5.000 meters. In the 10.000 Bob ran one of his best races of the season but was unable to catch Will of the New York Athletic Club. Bob set the pace most of the distance but Wilt caught Bob with a lap to go and won easily. Wilt won the 5,000 also with Ashenfelter second anti Bob third. This was the last race of the season and a very successful season for Rhode Island State. 265 i lie ball deep into N. H. territory.

Hopes of a ' surprise upset " were very slim as the Bruins boasted its strongest club since the 1929 Iron Man Team. State ' s chances, if any, rested in the pitching arm of quarterback Bob Under- Thc Bruins, receiving the opening kickoff, fumbled on their own twenty-yard line. State recovered. Three pass plays failed to make a first down and Slate punted. From this point, of the game the Bruins found it quite easy to penetrate the Rhotly defenses. At halftime Brown led 33-0. In the secontl half the Bruins pushed across two more touchdowns. State showed some de- fensive prowess by stopping the Bruins first string in the last quarter. Score — 46-0. (Mass. State) State, after dropping three consecutive games, journeyed to Amherst to meet the U. of Mass. The Rams hopes of moving to the win col- 268 (U. of Conn.) With only two games left in which to enter the win columns, the hapless Rams journeyed to Storrs. Conn. The first half of this encounter saw the ball move back and forth on the field. State quar- terback. Bob Underhill, moved the Rams to within the Huskies twenty-yard line on several occasions only to lose the ball on downs. The first half ended 7-0 in favor of Conn. A victory-hungry State eleven entered the second half with high hopes. The Ram line held well but a fake kick and a pass netted U-Conns second T.D. Two more points were added when the Huskie line nailed “Ed " Per- naveau in the end zone. Passes from Bob Underhill to Don Gavin often put the Rams in scoring position but they lacked that all important scoring punch. The game ended with R. I. on the short end of a 23-0 score. (Buffalo) Prior to State ' s last game ol the season. Head Coach Bill Beck handed in his resignation. In an effort to salvage one game at the ex- pense of the Buffalo squad. Coach Beck shifted two of his players. Center Frank Scarafile was moved to tackle to strengthen the right side of the line. Guard Tony D ' Amico was shifted to fullback. The game ' s opening kickoff was fumbled by the Bisons and recovered by the Rams, fn five plays State moved the ball from Buffalo ' s twenty to the three-yard line. The Rams hit the line twice with no gain. On the third try State fumbled and this time the Bisons re From this point the Buffalo team went on to subdue the Rams by a score of 33-0. This game climaxed one of the most dis- astrous seasons at R. 1. State since 1926. Stel- lar defensive performances were turned in by A1 Bernstein and Frank Scarafile. Playing their last game for the Blue were Co-captains Ben Curtis and A1 Bernstein. 270 sli m 271 secuiive year that the Blue and White captured the Yankee Conference title. The opposition was rendered by the University of Maine, Uni- versity of Connecticut, Massachusetts State University respectively. Art Sherman again vaulted thirteen feet, but failed to gain a place in the scoring column. The next weekend found the Ram forces in Madison Square Garden again competing in the New York Athletic Club meet. The Blue and White quartet was given a second place in what looked to be a dead-heat with Tufts College. Anchor man Ray Dwyer was in second place by four yards when he received the baton and staged a gallant effort in trying to pass Tufts ' Armand Fury at the wire. Bos- ton University was third. The winner ' s lime was 3:26.5. The Ram quartet was made up of .Squadrito, Wiley, Johnson, and Dwyer. Again in this meet the ever dependable Sherman vaulted thirteen feet for a third place tie. On February 15 a sparse Rhody force trav- eled to Providence to compete in the New England AAU meet which was held in Crans- ton Street Armory. Once again State ' s own Bob Black brought glory to himself and our school by winning the three mile champion- ship and setting a record in the process. Bob covered the distance in 14: ' !6.7 which bettered the old mark by several seconds. Also gaining a first place was Art Sherman who became New England champ in the pole vault. The NAAU and IC4A were held on con- secutive weeks in Madison Square Garden. New York. In the former the relay team was seeded in the heal w T ith some of the best teams in the East, the highlight of this race was the battle between ‘ ' Johnny " Johnson and NYU ' s Dick Maiocco in which Johnson emerged the victor. The team was unable to gain a spot in the finals, however. The same situation resulted in the 1C4A, with the relay team again failing to qualify. Several individuals performed well in these meets. They were: Bob Squadrito and A1 Wiley in the 60, Ray 272 Dwyer in ilie 600, “Johnny " Johnson and Larry McLay in the 1000. Bright spots of the meets were Art Sherman ' s tie for fourth in the NAAIJ and his tie for third in the IC4A the height in both cases being 13 feet. The last meet of the season found the Rams once again in the familiar confines of Madison Square Garden. The matchmakers for this race reached into their hat and came up with Colgate, Fordhatu. Holy Cross, and Boston College as opponents for the " Midgets " , Ray Dwyer, who was shifted to the second leg from his customary anchor spot, was timed in 49.8 seconds, but in spite of his tremendous per- formance the Rams could do no better than fourth against this select group. There was consolation in the fact that they were well ahead of Boston College who had previously beaten them. Art Sherman brought more laurels to himself and to Little Rhody by top- ping the cross-bar in the pole vault at 13 feet which gave him a tie for second. This meet drew the curtain on the 1950 indoor season, which could be considered fairly successful. It was the last performance on the boards for Bob Squadrito, Aldcn John- son, Ray Dwyer and Art Sherman, all of whom deserve a place in Rhode ' s Hall of Fame for outstanding athletes.

SUMMARY 276 Franklin Park Oct. 14 Neil Barney Van Cortlandt Park Oct. 8 It was a Ram versus Ram in the sweltering heat at New York City. The flock from Ford- ham was subdued but not until after Ray Lis- ter and George Mona had shaken off Curran of Fordham to make it a 1. 2. 3 finish for Rhody. Yes, Blackie won the race in the good time of 26:14 for the better than 5 mile course. THE SUMMARY While they did sneak off with 2nd and 4th place, respectively, both Holy Cross and Har- vard succumbed to a stronger Ram team. The Rhode Islanders were too much for the re- maining Crusaders and Crimsons. Hob Black warmed up on the -1 4 mile championship course as he won the race in 21:38. Larry Mc- Clay, running very smoothly was nosed out by Ahern for 2nd spot.

Running over a remeasured 4-mile course, Bob Black established a record of 20:16. Romping home first he led the Rams to a 23-30 butting of the Brown bears. Despite his su- perlative effort, Ray Lister could not quite catch the much-improved Tobey twins, who garnered 2nd and 3rd places. The Tobey ' s did not have a team comparable to the one following Black, and the " blue wave " again flooded across the line. Storrs Oct. 27 Exuding an unwarranted confidence, the ram was almost shorn of its victory string. One point, or more precisely, two feet was the margin of victory. Gambling from the start, three U-Conn huskies were quick to follow right behind Bob Black and they were never caught by the rams who were in hot pursuit. After them came Larry McClay, George Mona, Neil Barney and the 4lh U Conn runner, all close enough to cover with a blanket. Black broke his own record for this 4 1.4 mile course. The time was 21:22. 278 THE SUMMARY U (.iorchmo IS Ehihartll finishes: Ash, Roberts and Franklin Park Nov. 7 N. E. I. C. 4A and Yankee Conference Picking up two individual and team titles in one race, the Rhody runners sent staid Bos tonians away wondering if the rams would ever lose their New England supremacy. Bob Black crosses the line 600 yards in front. Black, despite mild stomach pains, ran over the oft-changed course in 21:18. He was a full minute ahead of Fred Schoefller of Tufts. The team honors were just that: a victory by a well bunched team that won on its own abilities. Ray Lister was 16th, followed by Rob- erts (20), Barney (21), and McClay (25). George Mona and Ed Quirk also ran. Brown was a strong second. The scoring: R. 1. 83, Brown 95 and U-Conn 119. Vail Cortlandt Park Nov. 21 I. C. 4 A. This was a sad day for Rhody followers.

The team finished as follows for 10th place in the scoring: McClay (66) , Barney (71), Roberts (83), Mona (142), Lister (176) and Quirk. Dick Shea and Army walked off with the first place honors to displace favored Michi- gan Stale. Shea ' s time of 25:14.7 was off Blackie ' s record time of 25:00.4.

I. 51 — University of Maine 48 Behind by 8 points with 8 minutes left to be played, the Rams went on a last minute scoring spree which enabled them to pull past a vastly improved Black Bear five. Only six players were used as the Rams won No. 15. Stewart had 15 points and Golentbiewski 12. R. I. 71 — University of Conn. 74 Overcoming a first half deficit of 16 points the Kingston kids lost a heartbreaker to an improved Huskie team in the last five seconds of the ball game. UConn scored at the five second mark on a free toss, and later added two more. Golembicwski got 21 points and Blount 16 as they led the scorers. R. I. 60 — Providence College 58 Five seniors made their last home appear- ance in this tilt and they were intent to rectify the earlier defeat at the hands of the Friars. With 6 minutes and 40 seconds remaining and sporting a 56-49 lead the Rams decided to freeze the ball, a move which almost cost them the game as the Friars pecked away at their lead. Johnny Mitcheli was “the people ' s choice " to hold the ball, and hold it he did. Golembiewski gathered 16 points and Blount 14 to lead the scorers. Rhode Island 60 — Springfield 58 A determined Springfield team led the Rams 56-54 with slightly more than two minutes re- maining in the game. Blount put one up and in to knot the count. Then with 30 seconds showing on the fieldhouse clock Golembicw- ski dropped in his only two free throws of the evening to put the Rams ahead. Springfield quickly tied the score and the stage was set for the dramatic finale shot of reserve Walt Basler who sneaked in underneath and scored with but ten seconds left. R. I. 67 — Brown University 53 Outscored from the floor 21-20. but getting 27 of 40 free throws while the Bruins could muster only 1 1 of 27, the Rams went on to win their 18th game of the season and capture the State Collegiate title again. Blount had 20 points and Shannon 15 as five seniors de- parted from the Kingston basketball scene. The Rams ended the season with an 18-8 rec- ord and were crowned State and Yankee Con- ference Champions. CROSS COUNTRY S. A. E. again proved to be the power on campus in Cross Country, winning the title for the t hire! straight year. Pierce Donovan also made it three in a row by taking the in- d ividual crown for his third successive year. Although Donovan trailed Art Willey across the finish line, he was declared the winner when Paul F. Cieurzo. Director of Intramurals, disqualified Art Willey. Art had competed in a varsity meet against Harvard and, al- though dropped from the squad, he failed to obtain written permission to compete in In- tramurals. S. A. E. placed four men within the first six finishers to win the championship with ease. The live men who placed in the scoring for S. A. E. were: Donovan (I) . Mulvey (3) . McCarthy (5) , Staton (6) and Johnson (II). The first five fraternities finished as follows: First Plan- S. A. K 29 Points Second Plan- PHI MU 65 Points Third Place I.AMBDA CHI 82 Points Fourth Place SIGMA PI 102 Points Fifth Place SIGMA CHI 150 Points 289 FOOTBALL The Touch Football league proved to be the most interesting Intramural sport of the year with the last game of the season deciding the championship. S.A.E. was the ultimate winner with but one loss and one tic on its record. Beta Phi, the runner up, had two defeats, one at the hands of S.A.E. and the other defeat by Alpha Tau in the last game of the schedule. Alpha Tau continued its winning streak by beating Beta Phi 6-0, its ninth straight win. Although Alpha Tau had no chance of win- ning the title, they showed championship form in their last games. S.A.E. whose only loss was to Sigma Pi 2-0, played good ball consistently throughout the season. It was " Rebel " Murry whose fine kicking kept the Violets back in their own territory and out of the scoring column for the Theta Chi gave the Violets the best game of the season, the game ended in a 0-0 tie. Neither team could come within twenty yards of scoring. It was by far the greatest display of defensive power in the league ' s competi- Great passing by Ken Panciera, pass receiv- ing by Ira Murphy and fast running by Ray " Scat-back” Dwyer, kept the team a constant threat throughout the season. 290 BASKETBALL The Intramural basketball season ended in a photo finish with two teams tying for first place in both leagues, l ying for first place in the Fraternity league were S. A. E. and P. I. K. and in the Dorm-Hut League, the Dons and the Indians. The Fraternity League had the closest fin- ish it has had in many years. At the end of the season with each team having but one game to play there was a four-way tie for first place. Lambda Chi, P. I. K... Theta Chi, and S. A. E. all had an 8-2 record. Both Theta Chi and Lambda Chi met with disaster in their last game. In the play-offs in each league competition was very tight. S. A. E. and the Dons came up with victories to win their respective leagues. The Dons had little trouble in win- ning over the Indians by eight points while S. A. E. had trouble in winning by the same score. The Dons scored early and held it. S. A. E. and P. I. K. changed leads seven times before S. A. E. finally pulled away. Avedisian played well for the Dons setting up many of their scoring plays. Frank Scara- file played one of the greatest defensive games played at Rodman Hall breaking up I’. I. K. ' s scoring attempts in the last minutes, the rea- son for S. A. E. ' s victory. A play-off between the Dons and S. A. E. will be played to determine the Intramural Cham- pionship. 291 SOFTBALL A total of twenty-three teams entered the softball league, played on six diamonds, laid out on the sides of Rhody ' s spacious Athletic Field. These games may be the last to be played on this field as it is the site of the new gym. The teams were divided into three leagues, two fraternity leagues of seven teams and one league composed of the huts and the off- campus groups. The games which were six innings in length were scheduled daily for 6:30 P.M. Including the playoffs there were more than seventy games played. Several hundred spectators were on hand each night to watch the highly spirited games. P.l.K. and Phi Mu Della tied for first place in one league. A play-off between the two teams placed P.l.K. in the play-offs for the championship. Theta Chi anti the Rams were the winners in the other two leagues. The Rams defeated Theta Chi and won the right to play P.l.K. for the championship. In two closely fought contests. P.l.K. proceeded to win their second consecutive softball cham- pionship. by defeating the Rams. P.l.K. had one of the heaviest hitting teams in the league, and although their fielding at limes was poor their hitting more than made up this weakness. Costly errors put them be- hind in both play-off games but their hitting pulled both games out of the fire. TRACK The Intramural Track Meet was won by Beta Phi, with S.A.E. taking second place. Beta Phi gathered 2(i points, 15 of which came on first place performances. The big gun for the winners was Ken Gavin who took first place in the 100-yard dash and broad jump and also anchored the winning relay team. S.A.E. also took three firsts with Donovan winning the 880-yard run, Robert Brown tak- ing the High Jump and Leon Golembiewski walking away with the shot put. A total of 178 men competed in the meet and 800 spectators were on hand to enjoy the meet and root for their respective favorites. Although only six fraternities scored in the meet, other fraternities had teams. These teams failed to score by the narrowest of mar- gins. Many decisions were slow in coming because of the many photo-finishes that took place. The following is ihe standing of the teams: BETA PHI 26 Points • S. A. E 20 Points A. E. PI 7 Points PHI MU I Points PHI SIGMA 1 Point 293 VOLLEYBALL Volleyball, which is becoming one of the most interesting of intramural sports, finished with P. I. K. as champions. A total of seven- teen teams, which composed two leagues, took part in the competition. The two top teams in league Two and the three top teams in League One were in the playoffs. When the smoke cleared from the quarter finals, P. 1. K„ Lambda Chi, S. A. E., and Beta Phi remained. P. I. K. edged Beta Phi in two games while S. A. E. was getting trounced by Lambda Chi, 15-5 and 15-6. The finals between P. I. K. and Lambda Chi was a four out of seven series. This series required the entire seven games and took three and one-half hours to complete. The three top teams in the two leagues were: LEAGUE ONE LEAGUE TWO A. E.

During this year, the Sophomore Class, managed by Gloria Sousa and captained by Sally Hoyle, won the championship after a difficult final game with the Seniors. The intramural cup was captured by Elea- nor Roosevelt Hall but not without a fig ht from Delta Zeta girls. Eleanor Roosevelt was led to glory by Captain “Liz " Maljanian. BADMINTON In 1949, the W. A. A. completed three suc- cessful badminton tournaments. This sport was received with a great deal of enthusiasm and a record participation. The Singles were won by Ginger Jones alter a dose match with Jean Cruchshank. Mary Dee and Adele Shuster played Sally Keleher and Ginger Jones in the finals of the regular doubles. After three games it was won by the latter. The mixed doubles were won by Sally Kele- her and Ken Goodwin after a battle in the final round with Jean Royal and Sam Katzen. Royal, S. Katzc L.

The Freshman champ was Anita Merson, Anne Budlong was victor of the Sophomores, Sally Keleher of the Juniors, and Mina Koning came out on top for the Seniors. After the individual class champions were crowned, a play-off between the top four was held. In this. Sally Keleher and Anne Budlong emerged victorious and met to try for the laurels of the school. After a hard-fought battle Sally was ac- claimed as our women ' s tennis champion. It ended as one of the most successful tourna- ments of the school year. 300 ARCHERY 301 SOFTBALL m Spring of 1949 came a little too fast for the W. A. A. Because of the rainy weather and lack of time, the softball tournaments were a little rushed. However. the spirit was there and the turnout was one of the largest that we have ever had. Eleanor Roosevelt Hall came through to win the trophy after a great deal of competition in their final round robin game. They had such outstanding players at sluggers Peg Tefft and Doris Pelligrini. The all powerful Sophomores proved again that they have a fine group of athletes in their class by defeating the second place Seniors, 11-9. 302 303 S04 307 308 THE JUNIOR PROM The Shcraton-Billmore supplied the glam- ir and glitter for the Junior Prom held on ay 3. 1919.
