BROWNING, Faculty Advisor THEME AND DEDICATION This 1951 edition of the Grist is dedicated to those students who have in the past and present carried on the traditions, ideals, and spirit of the University of Rhode Island. Placed with you are the hopes of future success and recognition. Thus by time, effort, loyalty, and devotion, our college will continue to flourish. Within these pages the theme " Spirit is embodied. May it never lag or be broken. " THE CLASS ADVISOR’S MESSAGE As students of the Class of 1951 you have had the good fortune to be at Rhode Island State College during a period when the college has made rapid strides toward its goal of becoming a “quality ' ’ institution of higher learning. Many of the improve- ments which have taken place have not been readily observed by students and friends of the college. For example, I think the faculty has grown considerably, not only in numbers but also in the quality of the instruction which this body can give to the students. It is easy to understand why such improve- ments might not have been noticed by the people of the state. My purpose in this message is not to " advise. " (You will get enough advice from your elders during graduation week.) My purpose is to ask that you become " Am- bassadors of Good Will” for Rhode Island State College. It is up to you to convince the people of the state that their state col- lege is now truly an institution of higher learning and that the money which they are spending for Rhode Island State College will pay increasing dividends for the state. Make Rhode Island State College your hobby. Eugene Winslow W ISDOM IS THE PRINCIPAL THING; THEREFORE GET WISDOM; AND WITH THY GETTING GET UNDERSTANDING. Proverbs iv. 7. THE PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE To the Members of the Class of 1951: " The most important single factor in a modern liberal education, " says Harvard ' s President Conant, " is education students receive from one another. " For evidence of these educational values, look through the pages of the 1951 GRIST. Here, in picture and in printed word, is a record of the things you have been doing in your pursuit of a college degree. Your academic program, of course, has been your main college objective. But the academic is only a part of the education you have received. In your informal associations with fellow students, with the faculty, and with other members of the college community, you have gained educational experience equally valuable, equally important, in your preparation for a happy, useful life. The broad scope of activity that comprises college life finds graphic expression in the year- book. To each of y ou these pages will have a special meaning, according to your own special experience — the friendships that spring from fraternity and sorority, the mental stimulus that comes from a clash of wits in a club meeting, the inspiration of a confidential talk with a faculty advisor, the discipline that attends a contest on the field of sports, the thrill of seeing one s team snatch victory in a close-fought game, the poise and social ease cultivated on the dance floor, the self-confidence gained by one who holds office in a student organization, the sense of responsi- bility which accompanies student self-government, the appreciation of spiritual values nurtured by religious activities. All these, whether you realize it or not, have been an essential part of your education; and their importance will grow upon you through the years to come. You face a future fraught with danger and uncertainty. The kind of education you have re- ceived will enable you better to meet that future. Throughout the years you will increasingly treasure the memory of the rich experiences recorded here. Faithfully yours, Carl R. Woodward lit Row: Mr, MacLeod. Miss Kerr Snd Row: H J. Blais. A.

Representatives are sent to the National Inter- fraternal Conference to discuss common problems with undergraduates from colleges in every section of the country. Closer ties have been effected PRESIDENT VICE PRESIDENT Kenneth Parris Richard Blackington with the Inter-fraternity Council founded here during the war years. Governed by Officers chosen impartially from among the representatives of each Fraternity, Poly- gon 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.

On October 15, 1908 Rho Iota Kappa, the first fraternity on campus, was organized The present chapter house was opened in 1927 and is indeed a tribute to the fraternal organizations on the campus. The Grist of 1909 said of the movement for fraternity organization: " Fraternity spirit, if cultivated in the proper direction, is of inestimable value to the college man in creating that feeling of brotherly love which all college men should have toward one another. The fraternity experi- ment is still in its infancy on the campus and it is everyone ' s hope that R.I.K. will show the way. " Throughout the years Rho lota Kappa has continued to follow the principles of good fellowship and brotherhood. Excell ng in athletic and scholastic ways, R.l K. has indeed fulfilled the desire of the Grist of 1909. 18 Arthur Adamopoulous Bamby Soscia CLASS OF 1951 Everett Doll Raymond Dalton John O ' Neil William Redding Charles Varney Hrire Oneyan James Nugent Charles Pyne Maurice Murphy Joe Ventetuolo Thomas Conroy Bennett Foster CLASS OF 1952 Donald Roche Joseph Hillstrom Roy Corr John Lennon Robert Spilecki Everett McPhilips Anthony D ' Amico Kenneth O ' Brien Donald Tinty Peter Calo Joseph Lizette CLASS OF 1953 Edward Murphy Wilfred Sardelli Alexander Falcone Victor Maggelli Arthur Panteteakos John Redding Norman LaGaeux Robert Magi II Raymond Roy George Comisk PRESIDENT Bamby Soscia OFFICERS VICE PRESIDENT SECRETARY TREASURER James W.

In 1911, the fraternity set a precedent by being granted a Theta Chi Charter and was initiated as the first national fraternity on campus. As of April 1950, the National Fraternity boasted 100 active chapters throughout the country. It is sometimes called the " Fraternity of Deans " since it numbers on its rolls many deans and presidents of United States colleges and universities. Noted for setting precedents, Eta Chapter was the first to secure the full time services of a housemother, a practice still continuing and since adopted by other fraternities. Eta also set up the first dining unit with a resident chef on this campus. 20 CLASS OF 1951 Herbert Bailey Robert Beaton Edward Berling Francis Bolduc William Bucklin Joseph Byrnes Charles Casey David Chase Austin Dwyer David Grimm John Martin Joseph Mel lor Philip Moore Robert Potter James Leslie Robert Simpson Richard Sweet Francis Wilcox Joseph Ostigney CLASS OF 1952 John Baxter Roger Boucher Mark Gifford Joseph Gulizio Robert Harrop Francis Higham Philip Hopp William Jackson Robert Kalberer Russell Kalberer Hubert Keenan Robert Love Richard McLaughlin Robert Melocarro Edward Pernaveau Robert Potter John Reardon Charles Reid David Sweeney Kenneth Talbot Joseph Venditto Robert West Thaddeus Zachadnyk CLASS OF 1953 Roy Allen Joseph Arnold Gustin Buonaito Bruce Crowell Ralph Etherington Ralph Fowler Fred Lennon Pat Pesseili John Randall Edgar Reed HOUSE OFFICERS PRESIDENT Joseph Byrnes VICE PRESIDENT Richard Sweet SECRETARY Robert Simpson TREASURER Robert Potter MARSHAL Joseph Mel lor FACULTY Prof. John E.

PHI GAMMA DELTA At the last Ekklesia of The Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta, held in September, 1950, at Atlantic City, New Jersey, a charter was granted to the former Beta Phi Fraternity. Beta Phi, founded in 1910, the third oldest fraternity at Rhode Island State College, had as its original home the old Watson house. In 1913, it built the first fraternity house on the campus, and in 1932, built and occupied its present quarters. The Kappa Rho chapter was installed on December 9, 1950, be- coming the eighty-first chapter of Phi Gamma Delta. The newest group of ' Fijis’’ are fully aware of the high standards and traditions of the fraternity and are united in their desire to be second to none in upholding and forwarding these traditions in the years to come. 22 Frederick Anthony Gabriel Caroselli Elmer Devolve John Eaton CLASS OF 1951 Edgar Ellis William Henshaw John King Robert Libby William Marcil John Mitchell Charles McLeish Dana Sibley Raymond Smith William Anderson Gordon Archibald Frank Cherms Arthur K.

Even as a young chapter in the international fraternity, it has made traditional at Rhody the Sweetheart Formal at which the chapter ' s sweet- heart is crowned and serenaded with the “Sweetheart of Sigma Chi. " The annual Sigma Chi Derby, a maze of humorous and trying athletic field events for the girls is also a campus favorite. Here the girls compete as housing units for the individual medals and final team award, the Bronze Derby. The fraternity furthers the interests of scholarship under a well planned system. Sigma Chi seeks to instill in its members the spirit of cooperation and the ability to assume and carry out responsibilities. Athletic and social programs help round out the factors the fraternity hopes will make better citizens. 24 CLASS OF 1951 Pasquale Bdrbd John Bulleit Robert Fleck Pdul Froeberg Dondld Gdvin Foster Heseltine Robert Hiller John Hutchinson Charles Kernan Donald MacDonald Robert Mason Pasquale Nappi Stephen Onysko Raymond Steen Albert Thibodeau Alec Voight CLASS OF 1952 Richdrd Almy Edrle Binckley Robert Cdlldhdn John Cdrroll Fred Codtes Jdmes Cooper Howard Hall Asa Holton Bernard Mathews Albert Peckham Anthony Pitochelli Irving Potter Robert Sciotti Wal ter Vargas Hugo Vigoroso CLASS OF 1953 Thomds Boyd Russell Burbdnk Michael Correrd George Donnely Gerald Faneuf Gerard Ferrara William Hutcheon William Marine Norman Peckham Richard Rene William Servant Rodney Stoll Joseph Worrall OFFICERS PRESIDENT Dondtd N.

There are also more than 120 alumni associations actively participating in current fraternal functions. Eta Zeta Chapter was installed on this college in October 1914, with twelve charter members. It was originally located on Lower College Road at the place where Sigma Delta Tau now stands. It remained there until September, 1936, and then moved to its present site at 11 North Road. During the war years, Lambda Chi was utilized as a faculty dining hall and a men ' s dormitory. In the fall of 1946, it reopened and promptly regained its pre-war standards and efficiency. Eta Chapter house has established and maintained enviable records in scholastic, athletic, and social activities since its founding thirty-five years ago. 26 CLASS OF 1951 Richard E.

Rhode Island Alpha chapter was founded on February 23, 1929. We now hold the Interfraternity Alumni council cup given for the first time in 1950 for outstanding achievement. We also hold the Intramural all-sports trophy. Throughout their entire history the Sig Alphs have been prominent in all the activities of the college, and their accomplishments have brought prestige to both the fraternity and the college. 28 James Beckett Hugo Key J.

As the chapter progressed, the idea of nationalization became an important factor. Finally, in 1928, it was decided to affiliate with Alpha Epsilon Pi. Through the efforts of an active alumni group and undergraduates, this chapter of A. E. Pi has grown to become one of the outstanding chapters in the national fraternity. Our fraternity stresses a well-rounded program, consisting of scholar- ship, culture, intra-mural athletics and extra-curricula activities. We feel that these aims are being fulfilled. 30 CLASS OF 1951 Georse Abrahams Banice Bazar Melvin Blazer Herbert Emers Aaron Fox Paul Fradin Erwin Freedman Mitchell Geller Leonard Gilman Philip Ginsburg George Handler Herbert Horen Bernard Jacobvitz Owen Kwasha Irwin Lecht Jay Lustig Marshall Rakusin Kenneth Resnick Norman Solish David Sopkin Irving Sugarman Merrill Temkin Bruce Zimmerman Theodore Zitserman CLASS OF 1952 Morris Applebaum Richard Berger Sanford Cohen Herbert Frank Edward Goldin Philip Gordon Morton Gross Irwin Gutterman Jay Halpert Norman Namerow Marvin Pivnick Donald Pokras Arnold Schaffer Joseph Zendlovitz CLASS OF 1953 Harold Bernstein Eugene Black D.

Realizing that a mere informal group lacked power, these men petitioned the college administration in January of 1924, and received a charter for Delta Sigma Upsilon. Three months later this new local fraternity moved into its own house next to the Kingston Church. In January 1929, Delta Sigma Upsilon was absorbed by the national fraternity of Phi Mu Delta as the Nu Eta Chapter. The present house was occupied in 1932. Phi Mu Delta is still expanding and will continue to expand. Our fraternity is very young and its possibilities are unlimited for the future. 32 CLASS OF 1951 Neil 1. Barney Clyde D.

The history of Tau Kappa Epsilon at Rhode Island State College dates back to the fall of 1920 when a group of non-fraternity men living in East Hall banded together and organized the Campus Club. As the membership grew, the group petitioned the college and became a local fraternity. Phi Beta Chi, making it the seventh Greek Letter organization on campus. Phi Beta Chi became interested in the ideals of Tau Kappa Epsilon, whose aim is to set forth the true spirit of man’s traditional feeling of fraternalism, and was installed as Alpha Rho Chapter on June 10, 1937. 34 CLASS OF 1951 Robert E.

PHI SIGMA KAPPA Phi Sigma, from its beginning in 1925, has been an exponent of progress. This progress continued on when it joined the national fraternity of Phi Sigma Kappa. Phi Sigma was formally inducted into Phi Sigma Kappa in February, 1948, and has continued to play an important role in campus affairs. Our membership has grown steadily to where we now have a large alumni. With this growth and an eye toward the future, plans for a new Phi Sigma Kappa house have been completed and it is our hope to move into our new Phi Sigma Kappa house soon. 36 CLASS OF 1951 Lewis Ball Donald Benvenuti Frank DeSantis Walter Diggles Eric Dober John Grossomanides Charles Moll Michael Natale Philip Paquin Kenneth Parris George Pinheiro Anthony Pusateri Albert Russo Norman Steadman Hal Melkonian CLASS OF 1952 Andrew Boris Irvin Drake John Eldridge Frank Gabron Spencer Howe Kenneth Howells John Jagchitz Daniel Kleber Raymond Nardone Robert Peck Ernest Petropoulos Everett Poole Robert Ruggiero John Shields Robert Smith Donald Steen CLASS OF 1953 Henry Berry Anthony Chrones Richard Clauson Alexander Hutcheon Robert Lees Thomas Matheson Arnold Slight HOUSE OFFICERS VICE PRESIDENT SECRETARY TREASURER Walter Diggles Kenneth Parris John Grossomanides PRESIDENT Michael Natale 37 Alpha Tau Gamma was founded in the spring of 1929 and held its first meetings in Washburn Hall. The nucleus of the organization consisted of twenty-eight men with Professor Ince as faculty advisor After living for three years in the Fortin House, they moved into their present home, the former Beta Phi house. The building was remodeled extensively at that time and again in 1941. Alpha Tau Gamma is looking to the future, and plans have been made to expand the present facilities to meet the requirements of a steadily expanding organization which now has a membership of 267 men. 38 CLASS OF 1951 Charles Baronian Robert Clark Robert Gilmore John Rogler Ovila Bergeron Thomas Fanning Thomas Lules Joseph Solmonese Clifford Burke Joseph Foglia Wilfred Marchand George Sprague CLASS OF 1952 Edward Brennan Salvatore Butera Donald Guinan Robert Lavallee John Penhallow CLASS OF 1953 Charles Aube Winthrop Collins Ernest Hanke Wilfred Lavergne Charles Chase John Clayton Vernon Follett Raymond Kaszyk Ernest Simpson HOUSE OFFICERS PRESIDENT VICE PRESIDENT SECRETARY TREASURER Joseph C.

In spite of its relatively late entrance to the family circle of fraternities, it has progressed rapidly in every respect It has participated freely and willingly in extra-curricular activities; and in intramural competition it has won its share of sports, sing ing and other trophies. The fraternity house is a beautiful brick building located in the north section of campus adjacent to the tennis courts and the hut area.

M Barad TAU EPSILON PHI In the fall of 1946, several students became imbued with the idea that a fraternity could and should be representative 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. 42 CLASS OF 1951 R. Blackinton H. Gratt W. Martindale S. Rosen S. Cohen M. Hamer M. Miller M. Wallick S.

PHI KAPPA THETA In the Fall of 1947, a group of students living in the hut area met to discuss the establishment of an organization which would serve their common scholastic, moral, and social interests. The outcome of this meeting was the formation of a club by the students named for St. Thomas Aquinas, a renowned philosopher and scholar. The aims of the Aquinas Club were furthered by the combined efforts of the original group and additional new members, and, after two years of persistent work, a petition was submitted in February of 1949 for recog- nition as a local fraternity. On June 7, 1949, the recognition was granted, and the Aquinas Club became known as Phi Kappa Theta, the youngest fraternity on the campus. 46 CLASS OF 1951 Anthony Abate Louis Beauregard Leonard Benoit Ronald Danis Andre Desaulniers Richard Downing William Drury Francis Feeney Donald L ' Heureux Robert Manuel Charles McOsker Raymond Milot Marcel Monier Rocco Quattrocchi Frank Renzulli Herbert Rogers Vincent Stifano William Thibodeau Francis Urrico Thomas Wylie CLASS OF 1952 Gerald Bousquet Arthur Hammarlund Donald Leys Leo Turgeon CLASS OF 1953 Raymond Ameen John DeCosta Philip Dilorio Michael Cassidy James Kimmer Lee Lamb William Larkin, Jr. Robert Wong OFFICERS PRESIDENT Donald L ' Heureux VICE PRESIDENT Frank Renzulli RECORDING SECRETARY Francis Urrico CORRES.

The mem- bers of Panhellenic stand for " high scholarship, guarding of good health, whole-hearted coopera- tion with college ideals and serving to the best of their ability, in the college community.’’ On this campus, one senior and one junior, elected by each sorority compose Panhellenic. The laws that concern all sororities are passed and regu- lated by this organization. Rushing of new students by the sororities is the major function governed each year. Other activities include the awarding of scholarship prizes to the highest standing soror- ity women of each class for the preceding year, and the organization of the annual women’s inter- house sing.

Theta Delta Omicron was estab- lished as a local sorority in 1924 at Rhode Island State College, and four years later this group became the Beta Alpha Chapter of Delta Zeta. The main social function of the Chapter is the annual Tennis Ball usually held in the fall. The object of the sorority is to unite its members in the bonds of sincere and lasting friendship, to stimulate one another in the pursuit of knowledge, to promote the moral and social culture of its members and to develop plans for guidance and unity in action. 54 CLASS OF 1951 Cynthia Bennett Anne Budlong Carol Heald Elizabeth McCarthy Cynthia Meyer Barbara Skooglund Marilyn Stake Shirley Steere Carol Wood CLASS OF 1952 Barbara Allen Avis Buxton Lucille Cashman Sally Davenport Patricia Heath Lois Ibbotson Theresa Majeau Ann Moran Marie Newmarker Dorothea Usher Margaret Wood CLASS OF 1953 Winifred Barber Patricia Byrnes Patricia Colwell Terre Dougherty Jane Drummond Claire Emerson Marie Gilbert Joan Haslam Jean Harnden Muriel Huling Elizabeth Kilguss Joan Lundblad Charlotte Panzner PRESIDENT OFFICERS VICE PRESIDENT SECRETARY TREASURER Shirley Steere Avis Buxton Carol Heald Theresa Majeai FACULTY ADVISOR Miss Muriel Fletcher 55 1st Row: B.

Students may major in general agriculture or one of the following fields of study: Agricultural Chemistry, Agricultural Economics, Agronomy, Animal and Dairy Husbandry, Horticulture, Poul- try Husbandry, and Rural and Urban Sociology. Courses recommended by the State Department of Education may be elected by those wishing to qualify as teachers of vocational agriculture. Train- ing in one or more of the major fields prepares the graduate to enter work in the field of research in the agricultural experiment stations, in labora- tories of commercial organizations, or to enter the field of commercial work allied to agriculture. As an aid to the training of students and for the purpose of research work the school maintains herds and flocks of livestock. Information concern- ing the advancement of agriculture gained through the research program is relayed to the people of the State by the Agricultural Extension Service. 72 DR. MASON H.

SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION The School of Business Administration offers professional and technical instruction in theoretical and applied economics and the organization, oper- ation, and regulation of business institutions. These programs are so developed as to combine a well rounded background in the allied fields of Busi- ness Administration and an adequate amount of specialized training in each of the particular branches of business so as to prepare young men and women to become competent professional workers in their chosen occupation. Curricula offered by the School of Business are: Accounting, Marketing and Advertising, Insur- ance, Industrial Management, Secretarial Studies, and General Administration. The Accounting op- tion prepares the student for specialized training and practice in the use of modern accounting methods. The Marketing and Advertising option is designed not only to place emphasis on sales, but to consider psychology as affecting sales tech- nique and buying habits. The program in Insurance is designed to qualify students to meet the educa- tional requirements of various states which are essential to become licensed insurance brokers. The Industrial Management Curricula prepares stu- dents for work in human relations as applied to personnel administration, labor relations, and re- search in related fields. Students preparing for advanced study in the professional schools of law, merchandising, social work, public administration, or graduate study in economics are encouraged to select the curriculum in General Administration. 74 PROFESSOR GEORGE A.

SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING The School of Engineering has made an effort during the past few years to meet the increased demands of industry and research. Seven curricula are now offered — Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Industrial, and Mechanical (with an option in Aeronautics) Engineering. In addition to these a student may major in Physics or Engineering mathe- matics. In recognition of the fact that the funda- mentals of all branches of engineering are the same, the work of the freshman year is identical for all curricular, and specialization begins with the sophomore year. The Engineering Experiment Station serves as the research and development department of the School of Engineering. Its chief purpose is to give assistance to industries, particularly those in the State, in supplying technical information, aiding in the development of new and improved materi- als, processes and equipment and carrying on original investigations which may contribute to progress in engineering. Graduate work has in- creased during the past year through the Experi- ment Station. It is expected that military require- ments will further stimulate interest in such work as upper air research in the future, and thereby increase the role of the Experiment Station. 76 DR. T.

Four of these deal with biolosy in its various aspects, one deals with Chemistry, and one with Mathematics; two are concerned with the preparation of those desiring to become teachers in the high schools, and one is a general and liberal course of study with major emphasis in certain so called ‘‘cultural” subjects. A student may major in General Biology with an option in Bacteriology, Botany, or Zoology,- or he may select Ecology, Pre-medicine or Biologi- cal Laboratory Technology. The Curriculum in Chemistry is designed to furnish the student with the practical applications of chemistry and provide a basis for further study into the field. The Cur- riculum in Mathematics is particularly designed to fill the needs of persons who wish to continue on to graduate schools. Prospective high school teachers may select from a wide choice of subjects, including Physical Education, in preparing them- selves for a professional career in education. The Liberal Studies Curriculum makes available a course of study that is broader and more " liberal than is offered in the more technical or professional curric- ula. Concentration may be based upon Economics, English, History, Languages, Political Science or Sociology. DR. HAROLD W. BROWNING, Dean and Vice President PROFESSOR FRANK W.

C. has been a part of Rhode Island State Collese since the school was established as the " Rhode Island State College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts " on May 19, 1892. The enrollment steadily increased until it reached a peak of 624 Basic and Advanced students in 1939. During the war years the Advanced course was suspended and the Basic course enrollment drop- ped to as low as forty, due to the great number of students being drafted into the Armed Forces. Since reactivation of the Advanced course in February 1946 many graduates have received com- missions as 2nd Lieutenants in the Officers Reserve Corps. In the future a few of the most acceptable Advanced students will be selected as recipients of Regular Army commissions. The number of stu- dents currently enrolled in basic and advanced is at an all time high. The serious military situation and the rearmament program has boosted the en- rollment of the Advanced R. O. T. C., and has led to the establishment of an Engineering Corps in the past year. 82 Colonel LEROY C. WILSON Major GORDON E. SAYRE Captain WILLIAM L. BIBBY Captain MILTON P. CHAMPLIN, JR.

The curriculum includes college courses in the arts and sciences, and basic preparation in all aspects of general nursing Opportunity is thus offered for both personal and professional devel- opment, and a sound foundation is assured for further preparation in advanced areas of nursing, such as administration, teaching, public health, and all clinical specialties. The College is affiliated with several institu- tions and organizations of high standing in provid- ing a well-rounded period of clinical instruction and experience. Throughout the course, emphasis is placed upon the importance of skill in bedside nursing as the basis for all future professional work. Upon the successful completion of the pro- gram, the student receives the Bachelor of Science degree and is eligible to take the Rhode Island State Board examinations and become a Registered Nurse. 84 DIVISION OF GRADUATE STUDIES DIRECTOR Vernon I. Cheadle Graduate work in all Schools at Rhode Island State .College is administered by the Committee on Graduate Studies, whose general policies are executed by the Director of Graduate Studies. The Director is responsible, administratively, directly to the President. Although Master ' s Degrees in courses have been offered by some departments in the College for many years, the graduate program first expanded rapidly in the decade beginning in 1930. The recent growth of the graduate student body is in proportion to the rapid increase in the under- graduate enrollment. Over 90 students were regis- tered for part or fulltime graduate study in the fall of 1949. The aims of graduate work vary somewhat primarily because an effort is made, within certain limitations, to provide for the particular needs of each student. The programs thus developed serve as a means, not only of obtaining more detailed acquaintance with broader aspects of subject mat- ter, but also of affording opportunities for express- ing initiative and resourcefulness in research. 85 these honors these groups 1st Row: F.

It has the largest enrollment of any band in Rhody history. However, that fact alone does not make for a good organization. The College Band has lots of spirit. Hampered by lack of funds to play at out-of-state football games, the Band sent a small group of its members known as a pep band " to follow the team, to keep their morale up.

Its duty is to promote a fair standard of scholarship, particularly among athletes. 141 We attended and enjoyed these events VARSITY FOOTBALL Head Coach Harold Kopp Backfield Coach John Chapman Field Captain The 1950 football season was anxiously awaited by both State rooters and the alumni. This season was to mark a new football era at R. I. State. Several days before Labor Day, the Ram foot- ball team gathered at Bressler Hall. All in all, there were thirty-five players to represent the Blue and White. Under the watchful eyes of Harold Kopp and his two assistants, John Chapman and Vic Palladino, the Rams started their vigorous training program. Good spirit and fine condition- ing were evident from the start. Line Coach " Vic ' ' Palladino Trainer Red McIntosh Frank Scarafile After two weeks of rigid conditioning the Rams were first tried against the Yale Bulldogs. This scrimmage revealed a fine running attack and a good defense. Two additional weeks of training found the team ready for their first game with the Bates eleven. Named field captain was center Frank Scarafile. R. I. 34 BATES 7 Coach Kopp s debut as the new Rhody mentor was successful. The Ram eleven, in seeking their 144 first win in eleven games, completely outclassed the Bobcats. The spirited Rhody eleven piled up twenty first downs with 270 yards rushing. The passing attack totaled 162 yards. Both offensively and defensively the Rams were effective. The accurate passing of Gadrow and Roche enabled ends Smith and Monroe to com- plete 14 out of 19 forward passes. Constant ground gaining by Cawley, Wright, Martin, and Vigoroso kept the Bates defense busy all afternoon. The 3500 fans were more than pleased with the fine spirit displayed by the team. R. I. 0 MAINE 13 Even with a crushing victory over Bates, the Rhody eleven traveled to Orono, Maine, a slight underdog. The teams were evenly balanced, but Rhody’s failure to take advantage of the breaks proved very costly. The Maine Bears were quick to take advantage of State s fumbling and miscues to rack up thirteen in the first half. In the second half the Rams outplayed their opponents in every way, but failed to make up the difference in score. Outstanding for their line play were Bob Hurley, Gus Buonaiuto, Joe Ven- ditto, Capt. Frank Scarafile, and Don Gavin. R. I. 14 NEW HAMPSHIRE 27 Despite heroic efforts, the Rams suffered their second defeat of the season at the hands of the Wildcats of New Hampshire 27 14, at Lewis Field, New Hampshire. Football Coaching Staff: Red McIntosh, Trainer,- Ass t Coach Chapman, Head Coach Kopp ; Ass ' t Coaches Cieurzo and Palladino; and Dick Cole, Trainer. 145 Co-captains Chuck Varney and Bob Hurley with Coach Kopp and the Ram-Napping Trophy, presented to the team for their victory over Connecticut. After a few exchanges of punts, the Wildcats drew first blood with a disputed 30 yard pass to the three yard line. In scoring, the Wildcats took a 7-0 lead. With several minutes remaining in the first quarter, the Rams climaxed a 60 yard march with Vigoroso smashing off right tackle for a T. D. Score 7-7. In the third quarter, the Wildcats registered two more T. D.’s after sustained marches of 72 yards and 49 yards. As in the previous game, the Rams dominated the second half, but could only register one more T. D State led in the statistics, but the score told a different story. At the end of the game, the Wildcat coach, Chief Boston, told the Rhody squad that he was happy to win over such a spirited and hard-playing team. The next day the Rhody Rams journeyed to Brown Field in high spirits. A spirited Ram eleven held the baffled Bruins at bay for five minutes. The Brown eleven fumbled and miscued to the delight of the Rhody fans. What followed turned out to be a romp for the Bruins. The Rams fought hard, but the damage had been done The only joy in the Rhody camp was the two touchdowns scored by DeSpirito and Foster. Despite the score, the Rams showed plenty of spirit and fight. R. I. 38 MASS. STATE 27 Battered but not beaten, the Rhody eleven thrilled the R. I. fans by edging out the high scoring University of Massachusetts the following week by a score of 38 27. The spectators watched the lead pass from team to team until it finally rested with the Rams. The Rams took the initiative and scored with Vigoroso racing 61 yards on a pitchout. Mass, was quick to retaliate with a 55 yard drive of their own. The missed conversion gave the Rams a 7-6 edge. The second quarter saw Mass, take R. I. 13 BROWN 55 Preceedmg the traditional R. I. -Brown game a spirited football rally took place. Members of the 1935 team, who beat Brown, were the principal speakers. 146 the lead on the fine passing of Anderson, the con- version was good, and Mass, led 13-7. Several minutes later a pass from Roche to Cap Smith connected for the second Rhody tally and State tied the score at 13-13. State’s third T. D. came after Reggie Gadrow intercepted a Mass. U. pass and raced to midfield. At this point, Martin and Vigoroso combined for forty yards and Cawley raced over from the ten. Score at the half, 19-13. At the start of the second half, a pass from Roche to Cawley went for ninety-one yards and a Rhody T. D. Mass. U. again drove fifty-five yards and scored. Score 25-20. Cap Smith again ex- tended the Rams lead by nabbing a pass and racing thirty-nine yards. Mass., still full of fight, could not be denied. Marty Anderson led his tribe to their fourth and final T. D. climaxing a sixty-seven yard march. With several minutes to play, Varney clinched a Rhody victory by intercepting a pass and racing fifty-five yards to the goal line. Final score — R. I. -38 Mass.-27. R I. 12 BUFFALO 33 The Rams, seeking their initial victory on the road, traveled to Buffalo to play the Bulls. A homecoming crowd of 2500 watched the Bulls romp to a 33-12 victory. It was the pitching arm of Art Holland that kept Buffalo moving. The Rhody ground defense held well, but accurate passing kept the Bulls rolling. Buffalo scored in every period and twice in the second. Rhody’s scores came in the third period when Roche un- corked a 30 yard aerial to Cap Smith, who ran it over. The second tally for the Rams came when Bob Underhill took in a Bull punt and handed off to Roche. Superb blocking enabled him to cover the sixty yards for a T. D. Entire line halts Brown ball carrier 147 R. I. 0 SPRINGFIELD 32 After a week ' s rest, the Koppmen traveled to Springfield seeking their first road victory. The game was played under a steady downpour of rain, which placed Rhody at a great disadvantage. The heavy rain made ball-handling difficult. The Gymnasts thrived on it as they employed the single- wing. State could not stop the short gains of the Springfield eleven. The Ram line, although greatly outweighed, fought well. The Gymnasts tallied three times in the second half to clinch the game. The Rams played well in the second half and on four different occasions penetrated to within ten yards of the Springfield goal line, but could not muster the power to score. Five fumbles in the Rhody backfield proved costly. R. I. 14 U. CONN. 7 Entering the U. Conn game a two touchdown underdog, the Rams closed out a victorous season with a win over the Huskies. A homecoming crowd of 4712 watched the Blue and White triumph in the 40th game of the traditional en- counter. The first half saw the two teams battle to a standstill. After five minutes of the second half had gone by, the Rams quickly scored twice. The accurate passing arm of Art Roche threw a strike to Cap Smith for one T. D. and Chuck Varney crashed the line for the second tally. DeSpirito made good both extra points. An alert backfield and a stubborn line held the Huskies to short gains. Playing their last game for the Blue and White seniors Don Gavin, Bob Hurley, Joe Ven- tetulo, Eric Dober, Chuck Varney, Pepper Martin, Bob Underhill, Ed McNulty, and Capt. Frank Scarafile. After the game the Ram-Napping trophy was presented to State and received by the game s Co-Captains, Bob Hurley and Chuck Varney. This cup is awarded to the winner each year and retained until the following season s contest. State rooters and alumni can well take pride in the new coach at State. Coach Kopp and his assistants have started a new football era at Rhode Island. A winning season for the varsity and a strong freshman club for added strength brings promise for the coming year.

Ray Lister led most of the way on the Butler course but was overtaken by Molineux of Brown in the last mile of the rac e. One last sprinting kick gave Lister the victory by a body width. His time of 22:34.9 was the fastest of the year over the Bruin course.

Ray Lister, finding the home course the hardest to 152 KINGSTON NOVEMBER 3 Bruno Giordano ran the fastest time over the Kingston course since the days of Bob Black to lead the Uconn huskies to a 26-29 victory over the Rams. He led by a wide margin. His time was 20:59. Lister, bothered by stomach trouble, was clocked in 21:22. It was the last race over the home course for seniors Larry McLay and Al Ash.

I. as New England cham- pions. The Rams finished 10th in the team scoring. The highlight of the meet was Ray Lister’s near- victory for the individual title. Moving from 6th place at the 2 mile mark, he closed with a rush and was only 10 yards in back of Giordano of Connecticut. Giordano’s winning time over the 4J4 mile Franklin Park course was 21:27. The other Rhody runners finished as follows: Negris (30), McLay (70), Pantelakos(71), Hardman (82), Ash (83) and Penny. I. C. 4A NOVEMBER 25 While Ray Lister was having his worst day in running, senior Larry McLay paced most of the New England harriers as he finished 36th in the championship race at Van Cortlandt Park, N. Y. C. The other Ram runners were Negris (65), Lister (101), Ash (1 1 7), Hardman and Plante. Pantelakos could not finish. R. I.’s 449 points put it ahead of all the N. E. teams except Yale and Maine. Penn. State won the team title and Dick Shea of Army was the individual champ with a winning time of 25:21.4, Black’s record for the 5 mile course is 25:00.4. NATIONAL A. A. U. NOVEMBER 25 R. I. was fourth in the national championships run over a 6 l A mile course in Franklin Park. Browning Ross won the race and the N Y. A. C. won the team title. Ross bucked 40 mile-an-hour winds as he beat out Curt Stone with a time of 31:34. Ray Lister in 10th place led the collegian entries across the line. The other Ram runners finished as follows: McLay (23), Negris (37), Ash (44), Pantelakos (50), Hardman (57) and Plante (64). The team loses only two letter men by gradu- ation; Larry McLay and Al Ash. These two will be sorely missed for they finished 2nd, 3rd or 4th men in most races. 153 OUTDOOR TRACK PROVIDENCE COLLEGE In the first outdoor meet of the season, the Rams posted an impressive 91-44 victory over the Providence College Friars. In their victory, the team garnished eleven first and swept five events while limiting P. C. to four firsts and one sweep. Bob Black and Ray Dwyer were double win- ners for the Rams,- Bob in the mile and in the half mile and Ray in the 440 and broad jump. Alexander was outstanding for P. C. in the javelin. HARVARD A mighty Harvard team was just too much for the Rams, for they overpowered Little Rhody 99-41 in meet number 2. The Rams weakness in the field events was the main cause of their downfall. In the running events, the old reliable, " Rapid " Robert Black, came through with a double win again in taking the two mile and mile runs. Art Sherman scored first, second, and third in the pole vault, broad jump and high jump respectively. Jack " Superman " Bulleit tied for first in the high jump and was third in the high hurdles. Coach Tootell s son, Geoff, was outstanding for Harvard, copping the shot and discus. SPRINGFIELD It was the old combo of Sherman and Black that carried Rhody to its second victory of the season. The Rams outclassed the Redmen, and after overcoming a two event defe at were never headed in handing Springfield an 83 11 12 - 51 1 12 defeat. Sherman won the vault, high, and broad jumps and the mighty splinter tucked away the mile and 880. Wiley and Squadrito ruled the sprints, finish- ing first and second; Al won the 220 while Squid copped the century. 154 BROWN Rhode Island’s depth proved to be too much for the team from the hill as Rhody piled up six firsts, eleven seconds, and eight thirds to slip by Brown for a 73-62 victory. There was plenty of excitement and thrills right down to the last event. In the mile it was a great race all of the way between the Ram ' s ace and Josh Tobey of Brown. Both Black and Tobey are tops in their field and in this one, a last desperate kick by Tobey took the victory away from the Splinter. Art Sherman was tops for the Rams, winning the broad jump and pole vault. Art just missed a record in the vault by springing up over the bar at a height of 13 feet 6 7 A inches, but X A of an inch short of the record. Squadrito and Wiley again combined in the hundred and two-twenty. YANKEE CONFERENCE Rhode Island breezed to their third straight Yankee Conference championship by scoring in all but one event and setting two new records. Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Vermont and Massachusetts finished in that order behind the Rams. Black captured the one and two mile events and posted a new 4:31.9 record for the mile. Sherman set a conference and field record in soar- ing to a height of 13 ' 3H " in the vault. Al Wiley ' s 21.6 record in the 220 was not official because of a favoring wind. In the shot, Ted Meyer was nosed out of first place by J4 of an inch. NEW ENGLAND MEET The Rhody track men were jolted from the top of the heap by a strong Bowdoin team and finished third in a tie with Boston University at 15 3 7 points. Handicapped from the start by Squadrito’s ill- ness, Rhody’s hopes were shattered when they qualified only seven men for the finals. Black took the two mile and Sherman ruled the pole vault by going one foot higher than his nearest rival. John " Slim ' ' Baxter finished second in the high jump at 5 ' 10 " and Bob Rowe fastened down a fourth in the discus with a 136 ' 6% " toss. Al Wiley was fourth in the hundred. It was a talented field of performers and the final outcome was dependent on individual per- formance rather than team strength. 155 Leading Finishers of the Intramural Cross Country run: Bob Love (4), Russ Mulvey (1), Jim McNamara (3) and Art Tingley (2) INTRAMURAL CROSS COUNTRY Phi Mu ended S. A. E.s three-year reign as cross country champions by winning easily. The defending champion finished fourth. Mulvey of S. A E. was the winner, breaking the meet record with a 9:16 mark. He was closely followed by Tingley of Phi Mu and McNamara of Beta Psi. Other finishers in the top ten included Potter of Sigma Chi, Love of Theta Chi, Berard of T. E. P„ Redding of P. I.

The finish, however, is being pro- tested by Captain Champlain and Sergeant Baker because of violations by the second and third place teams. In the meet, Coast Guard Academy was victorious, with Boston University second and Uconn third. In season ' s matches, the Rhody riflers won six and lost three. The defeats were at the hands of Uconn, undefeated Coast Guard, and Boston Uni- versity (by one point). Members of the team included Bob Sharpe, Elmer Devolve, George Prytula, Sheldon Hochman, Bob Callahan, Robert Duval, Frank Blount, Malcolm Lanyon, George Brown and Roger Shawcross. The other teams in the southern section were Boston College, Brown, Massachusetts, W. P. I., and Yale. 158 t -.3 i A t (.♦ ' a i 1 INDOOR TRACK The Rhody track team took part in the Prout and BAA Games in Boston, as well as the NYAC, Melrose Games, IC4A and National AAU Meet in New York’s Madison Square Garden. The season c losed on March 24 with the Providence College Relays. For the most part, the school was represented by a mile relay team and pole vaulter Bob Linne. Art Sherman, last year ' s New England champion, performed under the colors of the New York Athletic Club. Although the relay team was unable to win a race, they performed creditably on many occa- sions. In the Prout Games on January 20, the quartet finished second in a race to the wire with Boston College. The Melrose Games resulted in a fourth place finish to a strong Colgate team. However the Rams finished ahead of B. C. The Rams lost their Yankee Conference mile relay crown in the BAA meet to Maine by one yard. In the NYAC in New York, a third place finish resulted, with Tufts first across the line. The relay team included Al Wiley, Ray Lister, Larry McLay, Perry Silverman, " Red " Tingley and Paul Wilson. Bob Linne reached a height of 13 feet in his last two meets, tying for first place in the Providence College Relays. Other performers on the team were Bullock in the hurdles, Wiley in the sprints, McLay and Lister in the middle distances, Baxter in the high jump, Meyer in the shot putt and Goodwin in the pole vault. 159 BASKETBALL After an arduous twenty-eight game schedule the Rhode Island Rams finished the season with a record of 1 3 wins as against 1 5 defeats. Not once after the second game were the Rams able to reach the .500 mark in games won and lost. It was a tough season and the Rams received their share of tne bad breaks, so let ' s take a quick rundown through it. Rhode Island began the season with a starting five composed of one senior, Captain Johnny Mitchell; one junior. Chuck Stewart; and three sophomores, Fred Congleton, Bill Baird, and Rollie Kubiskey. Kubiskey was forced to leave school in order to comply with a request from the Marine Reserves soon after the Dixie Tourney and Coach Haire was faced with his first problem: who was to take his place as the rebounder of the team? Fred Lennon, another sophomore, was chosen for the vacant starting berth, but he was replaced by George Handler, a senior, who was in turn replaced by Ed Hole, a member of the junior class. 160 Hole finished out the season as a member of the starting quintet. The end of the year saw Capt. Mitchell named to the N.C.A.A. District 1 team as picked by Look magazine, while Chuck Stewart was given a start- ing berth on the all-New England squad as picked by Collier ' s. Billy Baird and Fred Congleton, while leading the Ram scorers, received honorable mention on the United Press all-New England squad. The season began with Chuck Stewart shoot- ing the ball through the hoop with amazing con- sistency, but after the Dixie Tourney he seemed to lose his " magic ' ' touch and Fred Congleton and Bill Baird took over the brunt of the Rhody scoring chores. Captain Mitchell remained the peerless ball handler and playmaker of the varsity five and on his capable shoulders lay the responsibility for the direction of the attack. Ed Hole gave invaluable assistance to Congle- ton in the rebound department and his all around steady play counted for much in the final days of the season. Seeing plenty of action as reserves were George Handler, Joe Comstock, Bob Underhill, Bobby Mitchell, Ray Rossi and Fred Lennon. All of these men performed creditably in their roles of replacements for the starting five. Madison Square Garden was the scene of the opening game of the season and Seton Hall was the opposition. It was a close, fast game all the way, but the Pirates had too much height in the erson of their 6 foot 11 inch center, Walter ukes and the Rams wound up on the short end of a 70-64 score. Baird was outstanding as he led the scorers and teamed with Mitchell in harassing the Seton Hall sharp shooters. The following week saw the Rhodyites playing host to their perennial foes, St. Joseph s Hawks from Philadelphia. With Mitchell freezing the ball for the last three minutes before a screaming audi- ence, the Rams compiled a 41% shooting average and romped to a 78-68 victory. Billy Baird again led the scorers with 20 points to be closely fol- lowed by Stewart and Handler. Boston College journeyed to Rodman Hall the following week and 1100 cheering Kingstonites were treated to one of the most thrilling basket- ball games ever played on the campus. The Eagles finally won out, after two overtime periods, by a 79-76 score. The first half was fast and rough as each team matched basket for basket. The half ended with the Rams on the short end of a 34-31 score. In the first nine minutes of the second half, Congleton, Kubiskey and Handler fouled out and the Eagles quickly moved out in front, 46-39. The boys in blue came back strong and with two minutes remaining in the half they had jumped out to a 61 55 lead. The Eagles called time out and then cooly returned to action, tieing the game, 63 all, at the end of the regular playing time. The following overtimes were hard fought, desperate affairs with each team doing its utmost 161 to salt away the game. Only four points were scored by each club in the first overtime and the score was 67-67 at the start of the second over- time period. A battle as bitter as any seen on the Rodman floor took place in the five minutes of the second overtime period, but the loss of Stewart, who after a shaky first half had come back strong, proved to be too much for the undermanned Rams and B. C. came through triumphantly to the tune of 79-76 Chuck Stewart was high scorer in the hectic battle as he set and drove for 21 points. Captain John Mitchell and Baird hit the strings for 13 points. The middle of December came along and the Rams traveled to Pennsylvania where they dropped two games in two days to Penn State and Bucknell. Penn State, a fine defensive aggregation played steady, but uninspiring basketball as they outlasted the Rams 61-55. The following evening, in Lewisburg, Penn- sylvania, the Bucknell University five whipped a tired R. I. quintet by the score of 80-68. The Rams could not get coordinated at Bucknell; a consistent five could not be found on the R. I. bench and the Rams were decisively beaten. Coach Red Haire took his charges to Raleigh, N. C. for the second annual Dixie Invitational Tourney during the final week of December. 162 The first tournament same saw Wake Forest, after being behind the Rams at the half, 31-24, come back to hand the Rhode Islanders another overtime loss, 57-53. Charlie Stewart again led the scorers with 17 points. The consolation tourney, the next night, found the Rams pitted against a tall, talented Tulane aggregation who were able to do just as they pleased against the faltering Rhodyites and won easily, 81-62. Stewart, once again, was high scorer as he hit consistently from outside for 23 points. North Carolina University furnished the oppo- sition in the final game of the tourney and the Rams found themselves as they set a tournament record for the most points scored in a single game while trouncing the Tarheels, 93-69. Four of the Rams swished enough points to almost equal the North Carolina total as Lennon, 19, Congleton, 17, Baird, 16 and Stewart, 15 cut in and out of the North Carolinian’s defensive setup at will. Defense of their Yankee Conference crown began for the Rams, with the visit to Kingston of the University of Maine on the 6th of January. The game was a perfect one for the Rams as they ran, passed, and shot their way to a 93-59 victory. The Black Bears compiled a 44% shooting average to the Ram’s 41%, but stellar defensive play on the part of Fred Congleton, Chuck Stewart and John Mitchell did not allow Maine to get into position to shoot. Fred Congleton with 21 points was high scorer for the Hairemen, but he was not alone in amassing a high point total as Johnny Mitchell (16), George Handler (14), Bill Baird (13) and Chuck Stewart (10) also were high in the scoring department. In another close game Brown defeated Rhode Island 59-57 on the Rodman Hall floor. This was the first time since 1935 that a Bruin club had been able to inflict defeat upon the Rams on the boards of Rodman. Fred Kozak, an old R. I. nemesis, scored the two winning points with four seconds remaining in the game. The first half ended with Brown leading by six points 32-26, but five minutes after the start of the second half the Rams had jumped into a 36-32 advantage. At this time, however, Congle- ton and Handler incurred their fifth personal foul and the Rams lost the services of their most pro- ficient rebounders. The Rams hooped two more field goals than did the Morrissmen, but Brown’s superiority from the foul line (21 for 27 as against State’s 15-31) made up the difference. Bill Baird was chief point getter for the Rams with 17 and was followed closely by Congleton and Stewart with 14 and 13 points respectively. After a slow start during which they were eleven points behind, the Rams caught fire at Rodman Hall and overcame the Springfield Indians by a 66-51 score. It was a wild rough contest with Baird, Rossi, and Congleton forced to leave the game midway in the second half after drawing the maximum five fouls. The final seven minutes of play saw Mitchell and Stewart combine their ball-handling talents 163 to effectively freeze the ball while also drawing the Gymnasts from their tightly-knit zone defense. Ed Hole and Congleton did yeoman work under both backboards while Congleton led the scorers with 20 points, followed by the 13 and 12 points collected by Hole and Stewart A road trip to Storrs and a tremendous effort by the Rams resulted in a 77 72 upset victory over the Uconn Huskies. It was a standout performance by a fired up State five, but the playing of Fred Congleton was truly outstanding as he scored 24 points including the final eight counters registered by the Rams. The Rhodyites raced into a quick lead and were 7 points to the good at the termination of the first half 35-28. Play in the second half was fast and rugged as the two rivals for Yankee Conference suprem- acy played all-out basketball. The Rhode Islander ' s hopes dimmed somewhat with the exit of Captain John Mitchell (after he had scored 10 points) with only three minutes having been played in the second half, but the performances of Ray Rossi and Bob Sullivan were beyond rebuke and the Rams were able to go on to win A beautiful dribbling exhibition by Stewart and Baird with a minute and forty-five seconds of play remaining effectively held the Ram s lead and they won going away. The next four games on the schedule saw the Rams run into some of the toughest luck imaginable as they went down to defeat in three of these games, but by an aggregate total of only six points. Fresh from their upset of Uconn, the Rams traveled to Boston Garden to engage the highly rated Crusaders from the college on the hill. The gigantic struggle ended on a controversial note with the Crusaders on the long end of the final tally. With 45 seconds of playing time remaining and the score tied 66 all, the Rams called time out only to be penalized with a technical foul for c jj] ' n S their sixth time out, one over the limit. The official scorer had failed to notify the R I. bench that State had used its allowable time outs but Coach Haire’s protests were of no avail The Cross failed to score, but they retained possession of the ball and were able to win by the score of 69-66. Fred Congleton again exerted a tremendous influence under both backboards, helped immeas- urably by the fine play of Joe Comstock. Bill Baird and Chuck Stewart hit the scoring column with regularity from outside the tight Holy Cross defense, but the Ram ' s foul line weakness was again apparent as they scored only 4 fouls out of 17 attempts while Holy Cross made 17 of its points from the foul line. The Providence Auditorium was the scene of the next Rhode Island game Behind 37-30 at the half, the Rams came back in the second period to take the lead from the Providence College Friars, but a 20-foot hook shot by Fran Pelligrino forced the game into an overtime period from which the Friars emerged victorious, 68-67. 164 As in the Holy Cross same, the foul line told the final story. The Friars scored 22 points on foul shots while the Rams connected for 17 in a roughly-played contest. An inept University of New Hampshire five fell prey to the Rams by a 90-38 score. The regular R. I. starters saw only about 21 minutes of action during the entire game as the Rhode Islanders were able to score at will through the porous defenses of U. N. H. Another overtime game was lost by the Rams as the St. Joseph’s Hawks, in a return contest, defeated the R. I. team by two points, 70-68. Trailing 61-55 with three minutes of the game remaining, the Rams began clicking and tied the game at 65 all at the end of the regulation time. The overtime saw the Hawks able to score only five points, all from the foul line, but the Rams could score only one field goal and a foul and were edged out, 70-68. Returning to Yankee Conference competition, Coach Haire and his hard-luck five were pounced upon by an alert, scrappy Vermont team that trampled the Rams by a 70-38 score. Handicapped by the absence of Captain John Mitchell due to illness, the State squad compiled a terrible fifteen percent shooting average, as they suffered their first loss in conference play. The University of Massachusetts Redmen were next on the schedule of the Rams. In this contest at Amherst, the Rhode Islanders captured their fourth Conference victory as they easily defeated the Redmen by a 75-58 score. Paced by Baird, Congleton, and Mitchell with 18, 16 and 13 points respectively, the Rams were never in any serious trouble, although it wasn t until four minutes had elapsed in the second half that a ten point flurry killed all hopes the Redmen might have had of adding the scalp of the Ram to their trophy room. The return engagement between Holy Cross and Rhode Island promised to be another ding- dong battle which everyone had come to expect from these bitter rivals, but Coach Sheary’s Cru- saders were not to be denied revenge for the closeness of the week’s previous contest and the high flying Crusaders made it " no contest " as they out-maneuvered the Rams by a score of 76-54 Only Baird and Congleton played up to their capabilities, while Joe Comstock was effective under the boards, but the height and experience of the Crusaders proved too much of a handicap for him. It was Fred Congleton and Bill Baird pointing the way once again as a far superior Rhody quintet completely subjugated the Bates Bobcats, 85-63. The Rams set a torrid pace from the opening tap and had run up a 51-27 lead at half-time. The remainder of the game continued in the same pat- tern, even as the R. I. reserves finished things up. Continuing their tour through Maine the Kings- tonites met and defeated the University of Maine Bears by a 71-49 count. The Rams jumped off to a quick 11-0 lead and were never in any difficulty from that point on. Maine was unable to score a field goal until after seven minutes had gone by in the opening half. 165 The Uconn Huskies, determined to avenge a previous defeat inflicted upon them by the Rams, moved into Rodman Hall for the game which would decide the Yankee Conference championship. The Rams started off as if they had never heard of the impressive 21-3 record which the Huskies had amassed and with but three minutes remaining in the first half the " Boys-in-Blue had dashed off to a seemingly comfortable fourteen point lead But then the roof fell in and the half ended with R. I. still in the forefront, but by only a compara- tively slim 31-27 score. Scoring in the second half was fast and furious as both teams found the range with unexpected ease. The lead changed hands several times, but the tall and rangy Uconns were not to be denied and with two minutes remaining to be played the Huskies were leading the hapless Rams by three points. Connecticut went into a semi-freeze as State desparately tried to close the gap The opportunities were given to the Rams to do just that, but opportunity is only fleeting and the Rams could not cash in their chips as they went down to defeat, 75-70. Providence College returned the visit of the Rams, but the Rams decided that it was not for them to play the part of the perfect host and while displaying some of their best basketball of the season, soundly trounced the Friars by a score of 86-62. It was the last home appearance for three grad- uating seniors, Captain John Mitchell, George Handler and Bob Underhill. The Rams certainly were " up” for the occasion as they put on one of the finest shooting exhibitions seen in many a moon. Within twelve minutes after the start of the second half, the Rams had raced to an insurmount- able thirty-three point lead and the reserves were placed in action to finish out the ball game. Pacing the Rhody scoring parade was Billy Baird as he caged 27 points in a spectacular scor- ing exhibition. Fred Congleton continued his fine work under the backboards and dumped in a total of 16 points Ed Hole and Johnny Mitchell con- tributed 13 and 12 points to the total score. Captain Mitchell, in his last home appearance, was given a tremendous, standing ovation by the overflowing crowd of enthusiastic rooters. The Varsity squad then traveled to Springfield where they scalped the Indian, 90-67. The game was a beautiful team accomplishment as all five members of the starting squad hit the hoop for double figures: Stewart and Baird 19, Congleton, 18, Mitchell, 16, and Hole, 11. Boston Garden was the scene of the next encounter for the Rhode Islanders, and Boston College, previous victors over the Rams in two overtime periods, was the opposition. Revenge was on the minds of all, but B. C. proved to be just a bit more opposition than the Rams were ready for that evening and a thorough lacing was dealt out by the Eagles as they countered 68 points to the Rams total of 54. 166 Rhode Island was ahead 30— 27 at the con- clusion of the first half. This margin was shortlived, however, as the Eagles clawed their way into a lead which reached fifteen points at one instance during the second half. A late R. I. drive closed the gap to 5 3-59 with two minutes left in the game, but Boston College continued their hard driving tactics and finished out the contest on the long end of a 68-54 score. Hitting on 41% of their shots, a smoothly functioning Rhode Island State basketball team easily gained revenge for a previous defeat by outclassing the Brown University cagers, 79-70. The game itself was not as close as the score would indicate. With two minutes remaining in the con- test the Rams sported a nineteen point lead, but the Bruins, against the Rhody reserves, put on a last ditch scoring spree which narrowed the score. Bill Baird led the scoring again as he dumped 30 points through the hoop. Hole, Congleton and Stewart each hit double figures with 15, 12 and 10 points respectively. With their scheduled season over, the Rams accepted an invitation to play in the first annual New England Tournament. The tourney field was composed of eight outstanding New England teams and was run off in two sections. The Rams com- peted in the southern section of the tourney which was held at the Tufts College gymnasium. Entered with the Rams in this section were Trinity, Tufts and Williams. The first day of play saw the Rams go down to another heart-breaking loss, 87-86. Trinity College was the opposition in a game which proved to be a free scoring contest with the accent on offensive play. The Rams led at intermission by one point, 41-40. In the second half, both teams found the range as they swished a phenomenal 60 percent of their shots. No more than three or four points separated the two teams and the lead changed hands ten times. Bill Baird led the Ram scorers with 28 points and Johnny Mitchell collected 20 points in one of his best scoring nights as a Ram. The following night the Kingstonites engaged Williams College in the consolation round of the southern section. Leading by only one point at intermission, the Rams put on a scoring spurt in the last ten minutes of play and ran Williams College right off the boards of the gym with a 77-69 victory. Baird and Congleton scored 23 points apiece as the flying Rams easily won their final game of the season. The departure of Captain Mitchell from the game signaled the time for an ovation by his teammates as Mitchell, Handler and Underhill made their last appearance in a R. I. basketball uniform. A backward glance over the past season shows that the Rams were very inconsistent. On occasion they could play ball with the best teams in the country, while at other times the worst team in the country would not have been hard put to defeat them. The twenty-eight game schedule, longest ever played by a Rhode Island basketball squad, was very tiring, and only eight games were scheduled for Rodman Hall The quality of the opposition was higher than has been the case in the past. Last, but certainly not least of the things to be taken into consideration, was the fact that the past year’s team was primarily composed of young, inexperienced ballplayers. The future, as far as basketball is concerned, is an unknown quantity. Less emphasis may be placed on the sport due to the past year’s revela- tions concerning the alleged bribery attempts and " fixes” of some of the more publicized games. The inroads of the draft will be felt by every school and team throughout the country. As the situation remains now, the Rams may be expected to give an excellent account of them- selves next year. The loss of Captain John Mitchell will be felt, as will the losses of George Handler and Bob Underhill. The remainder of the squad has picked up the poise and the experience neces- sary in order to play in fast company and by next year they should be well able to have a good season. 167 INTRAMURAL TRACK In a three-way battle, S A. E. won the spring track meet with a total of 14 points. Phi Gamma Delta and Phi Mu tied for second with 12 each. Leon Golembiewski led his team to victory by capturing two firsts. He threw the 12-pound shot 48 feet, 6 inches, and high-jumped 5 feet, 4 inches. Ken Gavitt of Phi Gam won the 100-yard dash, for the second consecutive year, in 10 8 seconds for a new record. He also anchored the winning and defending champion 880-yard relay team, which won in 1:47.2. Nickerson of Phi Mu won the broad jump INTRAMURAL A speedy Lambda Chi five won the intramural basketball title in a two-game c»lay-off with the Has-Beens, Hut League titlists. The close of the regular Fraternity League race was a " natural. " With Lambda Chi and Phi Mu holding identical 11 and 1 records, the two clubs met in the closing game. The first half ended with the score tied at 15 all, but with five minutes to play. Lambda Chi held a five point lead. However, baskets by Buba and Bennet, along with a foul by Hoss, tied the score and sent the game into over- time. The winners took the lead in the extra session and successfully froze the ball for a 38- 35 victory. In both play-off contests. Lambda Chi was forced to overcome early leads by the Has-Beens. with a leap of 19 feet, 1T6 inches. Art Wiley of Sigma Pi won the 880-yard run in 2:15.8. Defend- ing champion Pierce Donovan finished second. The following is the standing of the teams: First Place S. A. E. 1 4 Points PHI GAM 12 Points Second Place PHI MU 12 Points Fourth Place T. K. E. 7 Points Fifth Place SIGMA PI 5 Points Sixth Place BETA PSI 3 Points Seventh Place SIGMA CHI 1 Point BASKETBALL The losers, presenting a flashy and well-coordi- nated attack, were handicapped by a lack of suffi- cient number of substitutes, which proved fatal in the closing minutes of both encounters. The scores were 32-28 and 30-24. Lambda Chi’s effective center, Jack Kelly, was double-teamed in both contests, which forced the Kelly Green to do the majority of their scoring from the " outside. " Set-shooting by Jerry Loeber and one-handers by Kelly proved to be the differ- ence. The ball-hawking and key scoring of Bill Johns, along with Al Pinheiro, Jack Cawley and Phil Niles were essential in the victories. The com- petent officiating of Ray Smith and Joe McElroy held to successfully close the intramural basketball season. 168 INTRAMURAL VOLLEYBALL The volleyball teams were combined into one league, in contrast with last season ' s two-league system. Phi Gamma Delta walked off with the honors, remaining undefeated in 13 contests. The next three teams each had two defeats. S. A. E. ended second with 12 wins, A. E. Pi ALL-STAR TEAM FIRST TEAM Conners — Phi Gamma Delta Golembiewski — S. A. E. Helmus — Lower Dorm Basler — Phi Gamma Delta Katzen — A. E.

Although Boston Uni- versity could gather only two hits off the combined hurling of Hal Melkonian and Bruce Blount, they capitalized on eight Ram miscues to score single runs in the third and fifth innings. Rhody had men on third five times but, good defensive playing by B U. prevented any scoring. B. C. GAME 7-6 The Rhody Rams lost their second game of the campaign as their five-run ninth inning rally fell one short, thus ending up on the short side of a 7-6 score. The Rams took an early one-run lead in the first inning, but for the next seven, literally starved to death as the B. C. mound forces, headed by Frank Shellenbach, limited them to three singles. Meanwhile the Eagles trotted across the plate twice in each of the second, third, and sixth innings; and then in the seventh, knocked in what proved to be the winning run. 170 BROWN GAME Brown University’s Joe McOsker came on in relief in the sixth innins at Meade Field and set the Rams down to their third successive loss by allowing one run and two hits. Brown scored first on Gauthier ' s sinsle and a triple by Chuck Nelson. In the last of the first, R. I. got two as Kopf walked three, hit one, and then gave up a clean single to Joe McElroy that allowed Ira Murphy and " Weepy " Mansolillo to scamper home. Brown came up with a run in the second and the Rams went ahead again in the fifth on three walks and another single by McElroy. The win- ning run was scored in the ninth as Gauthier counted on an error in the outfield. BATES GAME 8-1 The Rhody baseball squad chalked up its first win of the season as they defeated the Bates " Bobcats " by a score of 8-1. Bob Underhill, making his first start, hurled a one-hitter. Going into the ninth inning, Underhill looked as though he might turn in a no-hit, no-run performance. Bates scored their lone tally in a fatal ninth when a hit batsman, a single, and two successive walks combined to ruin Underhill s bid for a perfect game. Johnson and Wright took batting honors with 3 hits in 4 trips to the plate. MAINE GAME (11 innings) 6-5 The Rams dropped the last game of a road trip to the University of Maine in a hard-played 11 inning game. The final score was Maine 6, R. I. 5. The score was 5-5 in the tenth, and then Maine ended the scoring on an error, a walk, and a single which was good enough for the game- winning run. B. C. GAME 4-2 With a four-run outburst in the fourth inning, the Rams won a hard-fought victory over Boston College at Boston, Mass. Joe Malikowski ' s towering four bagger over the left fielder ' s head to the barrier, with two mates on, led a blistering twelve-hit attack against the B. C. hurler. The Ball carried 380 feet on the fly, and had enough authority to roll to the wall, a distance of 415 feet. Aiding in the base-hit barrage were Murphy, with three hits, and Santo and Mansolillo, with two hits each. U. CONN. GAME 19-14 In a slugfest battle at Meade Field, the Uconn Huskies banged out 19 hits for 19 runs to crush the Rhode Island Rams 19-14. Four pitchers went to the hill for the Rams and all were soundly slugged by the Connecticut stickers. On the other side of the picture, the Rams teed off on three Huskie hurlers for 13 hits. Malikowski led the attack with 3 hits in 5 trips to the plate. SPRINGFIELD GAME 8-7 The Rhode Island State Rams met the Springfield Gymnasts at Springfield and went down 8-7. Hal Melkonian pitched well but came out on the losing end of a tight ball game. Ira Murphy and Sal Vento were the leading hitters for the Rams, with 2 for 5 and 3 for 5 respectively. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE GAME 9-8 Providence College invaded Meade Field on May 19 and dropped a 9-8 decision as Hal Melkonian pitched again and gave an outstanding performance. Murphy, Malikowski and McElroy paved the way as they collected 8 out of the 9 hits the Rams received. NEW HAMPSHIRE GAME A pair of shutout performances by Hal Mel- konian and Lou Josselyn brought the Rams a twin killing in a double-header with New Hamps hire by scores of 2-0 and 3-0. 171 Melkonian save up only 7 hits and allowed nary a man to walk as he had the Wildcat batters eating out of his hand. Josselyn proved even more effective as he twirled a three hitter in his seven inning stint. Only two men reached third against Josselyn, but Lou was invincible and retired the side without giving up a run. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE GAME The Providence College Friars were out for revenge as the Rams entered Providence. The city team took an early lead of three runs in the first three innings. Josselyn pitched the whole game, but lost in the sixth inning 5 to 3. Murphy collected the only hit for the Statemen. The Rhody runs were scored on errors and walks. MASS. UNIVERSITy GAME Vento, Johnson, Andrews, Murphy and Man- solillo paced the Rams to a 12-5 victory over the Massachusetts Nine at Amherst. The R. I. State team took an early lead and led all the way. BROWN GAME The R. I. State Nine avenged the 6-5 licking they received from the Bruins as they gained a 6-4 decision over the Brownmen. Bruce Blount pitched superbly for eight in- nings, but the two teams were all tied up going into the ninth. Sal Vento walked in the ninth and Blount powdered the ball to deep left field for a homerun. Blount then set the Bruins down in order. Mansolillo, Andrews, and Malikowski col- lected two hits each. UNIVERSITY OF CONN. GAME Going into the Connecticut game, the Rhody- men had a 7 and 7 record. The Uconns broke a two-game Rhody winning streak by shipping them 7-2. Verone suffered the loss, as the R. I. team could only scrape up five hits.

The opener against Maine was rained out with the score standing at one apiece. Brown invaded the Kingston courts on April 27 and squeeked out a 5-4 decision. The netmen traveled to Spring- field on May 2 and were downed, 7 2. The match with New Hampshire resulted in the third straight defeat, 5-4. May 8 proved to be the turning point in Rhody fortunes, for the team traveled to Worcester and decisively defeated Holy Cross, 8-1. Trinity Col- lege was the next victim by a 7-2 count. The Yankee Conference championships were next on the agenda, with Massachusetts breaking the Ram ' s two-year reign as titlists. Bob " Red " Love lost in the finals to Cleverly of Urnass, while Love and Ed Hole lost in the doubles finals. A win in either of these matches would have won the championship. Massachusetts, Yankee Conference titlists, were soundly defeated by 7-2 to conclude the season. Red Love paced the racqueteers with six con- secutive victories. Ed Hole won five of seven matches, while Wally Bergman and Dick Klein had 4 and 2 records. In the doubles, Klein and Staton won four of five matches to pace the team. SUMMARY R. I.

Under the able leadership of President Johnny Mitchell, they have maintained the prestige of their predecessors. The club takes part in many campus activities, the feature of which is the annual banquet in the spring. The guest speaker of last year ' s banquet was Adolph Rupp, coach of the famed University of Kentucky basketball team. Coach Rupp amused the assembled guests with his anecdotes of his trip to Europe as representative of the U. S. Olympic basketball team. He also spoke highly of Ernie Calverly, present at the banquet, and the 1945-46 Ram basketball team that nearly defeated Kentucky in the N. I. T. finals, 45-46. The R. I. Club Alumni Carnival Dance, the climax of Homecoming Weekend, has been in- creasing in popularity. One half of Lippitt Gym wa s provided for dancing, to the music of Ace Adam’s Band. The remainder of the gym was devoted to the carnival, which included basket- ball and baseball throws, a putting green, pitching pennies and hoop-throwing. Prizes were awarded to all winners. Among the other duties performed by the Club are ushering at basketball games in Rodman Hall and running the concessions at home football games. Keys are presented to the most outstanding members of the Club. Because of the increase of interest in football on campus, the R. I. Club is planning to have a football coach as this year’s guest speaker. Two choices are Frank Leahy, head coach at Notre Dame and Herman Hickman, head coach at Yale University. These men would be welcome addi- tions to the list of previous speakers at such banquets. 176 HOMECOMING RALLY The FHomecoming Rally was the fuse that lit up the big week-end. Floats, torchlight parades, brass bands, a huge bonfire and a spirited speaker set the pace for what was to follow the next day. Mr. Jesse Teft, captain of the 1894 football team, told the fans of the first three games that State played, and of the first State-Uconn game from which Rhody emerged as victor. AEPi and ADPi were those houses having the most outstanding floats in the parade. Following the announcement, the crowd gathered around a roaring bonfire where they were led in cheers and songs. 179 HOMECOMING DAY Uconn ' s Huskie was brought under control by the powerful Ram before capacity-filled stands of cheering alumni and undergraduates at Meade Field. After the game, jubilant, but hoarse, fans climb- ed the hill to attend the open house activities held on campus Individual trophies were awarded by the Alumni Association to the men ' s housing unit and the women ' s housing unit having the most attrac- tive and original outside decorations exemplifying the spirit of the day; Sigma Chi and Sigma Delta Tau were the proud possessors of these. The trophies were awarded at the R. I. Club Carnival Dance in Lippitt Hall that evening. 180 THE SOPH HOP It was just a little bit of heaven in Lippitt Hall on the evening of November 10, 1950 when the sophomores took over for their annual hop. Tommy Reynolds’ orchestra set the mood for the dance which was enhanced by the crowning of lovely Terry Doherty as queen. tSrrrij Ouhrrtii 181 THE AGGIE BAWL The annual harvest dance, the Aggie Bawl, sponsored by the Agricultural Club, was held October 11, 1950 in Lippitt Hall. Aspects of an autumnal farm scene transformed the girl ' s gym into an agricultural paradise. A ceiling of leaves with colored lights shining through onto the dancers added the proper atmosphere to the music of Tommy Masso and his orchestra. Invited guests included two young calves and several Rhode Island Red hens. Pumpkins and corn shocks helped to carry out the theme of the dance. At intermission, thepetite and vivacious queen, Joan Lunblad, held the red ribbon reins to a one- horse shay, pulled by six Aggie students, and circled the dance floor to the coronation stand, where she was crowned with a tiara of pink roses and fleur d’amour and presented with a gold loving cup. 182 I FACULTY FOLLIES Late in the second semester, on a Sunday in May, a day of tribute to the senior girls is planned which is called May Day. The program begins with the senior girls march- ing towards the unknown May Queen ' s throne. The girls carry ivy over their shoulders and the last girl in the line wears a white gown and a blue robe,- it is at this time that one learns who the May Queen is. The May Queen, who is always a senior, walks to her throne and the musical part of the program starts. MAY DAY A modern dance group dances around a May- pole, winners of the Fraternity and Sorority Sings entertain, and the Band supplies music, and a few housing units put on acts to entertain the many spectators, most of whom are parents. Somewhere in the middle of the program The Queen is crowned by the Women’s Athletic Associations president and the W. S. G. A. president. The program ends with all the senior girls marching around with their ivy chain and away from the platform and audience. 185 SIGMA CHI DERBY Rodman Hall was the scene of festivity when the Sigma Chi Derby was introduced last May. Co-eds were picked up at their respective housing units to the tune of a brass band, then on to Rodman where screams of mirth and encouragement accom- panied the various and sundry contests of skill. The evening consisted of pin-up races, egg-throwing contests, three-legged races, tire rolling and was climaxed by a tug-of-war, which was won by East Hall when the occupants of that dorm dragged the girls from Sigma Kappa over the line after a long and arduous struggle. The ADPi ' s copped first place and were pre- sented with a bronze derby for their efforts. 186 FREAK DAY AND STUNT NIGHT Freak Day is an old tradition at Rhody where the Freshmen sirls must try to dress themselves in the funniest ways imaginable. Freak Day is sponsored and controlled by the Women s Student Govern- ment Association. Stunt Night is the evening of Freak Day when the girls, each in their respective Junior counselor groups, put on a humorous skit before the women students, female faculty members and house mothers. No men allowed! A typical Freak Day will find the girls in their pajamas, nightgowns, or old-fashioned clothes and carrying toy animals, sacks, toothpaste and other odd equipment. They must wear the freak clothes all day long and many paint their faces until they are unrecognizable. 187 fiija (Sriuthrgan THE JUNIOR PROM One of the Highlights of the college social season was the Junior Prom, held on May 3, 1950, in the ballroom of the Sheraton-Biltmore Hotel in Providence where three Hundred tux’s and gowns danced to the music of Blue Barron and his orchestra The crowning of the charming queen, Rita Geoghegan, topped the evening ' s enjoyment. 188 NEW DORMITORIES More students live in the two newest dormi- tories at State College — Bressler and Butterfield Halls — than in any other two residences on the entire campus. The two dormitories are made up of more than comfortable rooms and college students — they are a cross section of the State college campus. Living side by side in the dormitories are freshmen, seniors, fraternity and non-fraternity men, graduate students and under-graduates,- thus the two buildings are more representative of the col- lege campus than any other residence, or group of residences. Besides the four floors of student residences, the dormitories have between them a pair of com- bination home-office apartments for their house- mothers, two lounges, mail-boxes, a cafeteria, and a recreation room. For this reason the dormitories have been called almost self-sufficient units. These dormitories are self-liquidating, as the $85.00 per semester charged each student is used to pay off the bond issue floated to build them. The basement of the dormitory contains a large room with candy and coke machines, ping-pong tables, comfortable chairs and a piano. In addition a smaller room nearby contains a washing machine and other laundry units. Subject of curiosity to all those who have never visited it is the new cafeteria in the dormi- tories. Visitors who usually come on the one day a week when Lippitt meal-books are good in the dormitory, find things pretty much the same, as those found in Lippitt Hall. A significant difference is the abundance of coats and ties that are in evidence during the evening meal. This can be traced to a requirement in the otherwise liberal regula- tions which have been accepted by the dormitory student. Students living in the dormitory enjoy the ut- most in comfort. Two young men share a comfort- able room furnished with two very comfortable beds, two desks, two bureaus, two good chairs, and a closet. These rooms have excellent light, sufficient heat, and are conducive to real effort on the part of the occupant to do good school work. Students also find their backwoods location convenient for many purposes. Freshmen taking physical education find that they can reach Meade Field quicker by traveling through the cross country paths leading out of the woods. The dorms are near the Roosevelt tennis courts and almost all of the women’s residences. The new buildings such as the gym, the new student union, the chemistry building, and others which will soon be in opera- tion nearby, promise to endear the dorm location to those students who do not enjoy long walks. The two large dormitories represent the prom- ised land to many students who came to Rhody after the war and found that a very definite housing shortage was in existence. After many delays the first of the two dormitories was opened in 1949, but not before 1 50 students spent almost six weeks living in Rodman Gym. The two dormitories contain the normal amount of politicians but most of their residents being independent students, have refused to organize. After several unsuccessful attempts at organizing, the dormitory residents undertook to write demo- cratic constitutions for their residences. This has already been done and the constitutions are now in the process of receiving final ratification. When put into effect they will serve as a democratic model of self-government of which the whole campus can be proud — just as it can be proud of the residents and the buildings in which they live — Butterfield and Bressler Halls. 189 Little did the Freshmen who came to Rhode Island State Collese in September, 1947, realize that they would be graduating from the University of Rhode Island in June, 1951 . After a long period of anxiety this Spring, the students left their respec- tive classes and attended a convocation where President Woodward formally announced the ex- istence of the University of Rhode Island. Certain sections of this book were already printed or delivered when the Legislature con- ferred the University status upon us. This will explain the appearance in some places of the name Rhode Island State College, and in others, Univer- sity of Rhode Island. The Editors of the 1951 GRIST take pride in being the creators of the first yearbook of the University. 190 REVIEW The audience’s mood of hilarity and good humor was maintained by the musical numbers, skits, and comedy acts, presented in a truly pro- fessional manner. RHODY Edwards Hall, April, 1950, was the scene of the second annual Rhody Revue presented by the undergraduates, and coordinated by Sam Kestenman. 191 PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT WOMEN ' S PHYSICAL EDUCATION STAFF 1st Row: Miss M.

The purpose of this Association, as stated in its Con- stitution, is " to promote and conduct a variety of wholesome and healthful sports and dance activi- ties designed for participation by all. " The administrative power is vested in the W. A. A. Council composed of officers of the Association, the Publicity Chairman, Representa- tives from each class, Head Managers of each sport, and a faculty advisor. The officers of the W. A. A. for the current year are: President Anne Budlong Vice President Barbara Haigh Secretary-Treasurer Alice Schulz Social Chairman Terry Majeau Assistant Social Chairman Genevieve Garvey Faculty Advisor Miss M. Dorothy Massey The W. A. A. Council decided to have each women ' s housing unit elect a representative to the W. A. A. Council starting in the Spring, 1951, semester. It is believed that such representation by each house will help develop a greater interest in ail W. A. A. activities by all. Awards were presented and the W. A. A. Booklet was dis- tributed to members at a W. A. A. Party held early in February and at the annual W. A. A. Banquet held in May. W. A. A. Banquet, May, 1950 193 W. A. A. AWARDS The W. A. A. has set up a system where awards are presented to the co-eds on a point basis. Points are earned by participation on various sports teams, by being a manager, scorer, timer, linesman, or member of the W. A. A. Council. The four awards given by the Association are: (1) W. A. A Shield - awarded to any member who has 500 points. (2) Key — awarded for earning 1 300 points. (3) Blazer — awarded to any member accu- mulating 2000 points. (4) Cup — awarded at the annual W. A. A. Banquet in May to the Senior who has received the highest number of points in her four years of competition. (Sally Keleher, Class of 1950, was the first girl to receive this cup at the W. A. A. s Spring, 1950, Banquet.) Two Seniors, Anne Budlong and Jean Cruick- shank, earned their blazers in their Sophomore year, the first time that such a feat has been accom- plished at State. These two girls have been out- standing athletes during their four years at Rhody and have done much to develop women ' s sports activities at State through their understanding, good sportsmanship and effort. 194 1st Row: T.

Ten houses participated in the February games with Alpha Deita Pi and Delta Zeta coming through to play in the final. In this championship game the most notable asset of each team was their remarkable team cooperation cou- pled with excellent serves and assists. Delta Zeta captured the house volleyball cupdefeating Alpha Delta Pi 29-14. In the round-robin Class Tournament those Juniors (Class of 1951) did it again! Facing almost sure defeat in their final game against the Freshmen, the Juniors pulled out ahead by the excellent serves of Sue Gendron in the last minutes of the game, winning 23-20.

BADMINTON Joan Blease, Sophomore Champion Badminton is one of the indoor sports most enthusiastically participated in by girls; over one hundred girls entered into the class singles tourna- ments in January, 1950. Besides the healthful recreation and fun provided, participants are also awarded points towards the various W. A. A awards. The singles championships of the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes were won respectively by Ruth Rutledge, Joan Blease, Jean Cruickshank and Ginger Jones. In a close match for the championship, Ruth Rutledge defeated Jean Cruickshanlc. Time did not permit the scheduling of a doubles tournament or a mixed doubles tournament this year. 196 J.

Heditsian (Head Manager) ARCHERY Rhode Island State ' s varsity archery team, which begins practising as soon as the weather is warm enough to permit the setting up of the targets, had a rainy season this year. Consequently, they with- drew from the National Archery Association ' s competitions during this 1950 season. Twenty girls were signed up for archery at the beginning of the season but only seven girls practised regularly and were eligible to recieve W. A, A. points. Those girls who were regular varsity members this season were: Joan Blease, Avis Buxton, Carol Coombs, Pat Heath, Alice Heditsian (Head Manager), Evelyn Wittig and Jean Royal. On April 25, Mr. R. J. Guyer, instructor in archery at the University of Connecticut, and seven Connecticut women who were on the Uconn archery team, gave an archery demonstration here at Rhody on the Women s Hockey Field. A large number of girls watched the instructor and his Uconn students put on the demonstration of archery techniques. If weather permits, the 1951 archery season ought to be a good one for the Rhody girls with many varsity members returning to join the team for another year. 197 SOFTBALL C. Quinlan, A. Ferreira Every year when spring comes to Rhody s cam- pus, there is much activity on the Women s Athletic Field. Softball is one of the best liked outdoor sports, and when the whistle blows and the umpire yells " Batter up! " there is always an exciting game. In the Spring, 1950, softball season, only the class tournament was held, with the Sophomores win- ning the championship because of a default by the Juniors (Class of 1951), who could only manage to recruit nine players on the day of the big game. The Sophomores broke the winning streak of the Juniors (Class of 1951) who, in the 1949-50 college-year, captured all the class tournament championships (hockey, basketball and volleyball) except the last — the Softball Class Tournament. When the class tournament was completed the end of the semester was so near that plans for a house tournament were canceled. 198 Anne Budlong, Junior Champion Sue Devine, Freshman Champion TENNIS This spring, the tennis tournaments were ac- tively popular. A new system was initiated for the class tournaments whereby tennis activity began in the fall for all but the freshman class with the idea in mind that the early start would mean an early end in the spring. The sophomore class com- pleted its tournament in the fall of 1949 and the seniors finished in early spring. The junior and the freshman tournaments did not finish until exam week in June. As a result, it was impossible to conduct playoffs to determine the school champion. The weather also played a part in delaying the tournaments, as it has done for most outdoor sports this spring, 1950. Sally Keleher defeated Jean McIntosh to be- come the senior champion; Anne Budlong defeated Jean Cruickshank in the junior tournament; Betty Wagenknecht defeated Pat Heath for the sopho- more championship and Sue Devine won over Carolyn Draper for the freshman championship. Attempts were made toward forming a varsity women ' s tennis team this season. However, be- cause of insufficient time for practice, plans for the team were not as highly successful as anticipated, it is hoped that the 1950-1951 season will bring more activity in the formation of an active tennis honor team. Two students, Anne Budlong and Jean Cruick- shank, participated in an invitation college tennis tournament at the Longwood Cricket Club, Brook- line, Massachusetts, which was sponsored by the Women ' s Athletic Association of eastern colleges. This was the first time Rhody girls participated in tennis competition away from the campus. J. Cruickshank, A. Budlong 199 R. I S. C. HOCKEY HONOR TEAM 1st Ro« J. Mortn, J. H«l«m, J. Ptckhtn.

FIELD HOCKEY Alpha Xi Delta vs. Davis Hall House Championship Game The field hockey season opened on September 25, 1950, when the first practice for house teams was held at the Women ' s Field Hockey Field With many spectators watching from the sidelines, Alpha Xi Delta, last year ' s champions, and Davis Hall met to play the house championship game on October 5. The teams were evenly matched; both played a superb game of hockey, the game ending in a score- less tie. The teams met again the next day to replay the game. After twelve minutes of scoreless play- ing it was decided to play a sudden death game. Davis Hall won the inter-house hockey champion- ship on Lee Thuotte ' s drive into the opponents goal cage. The Class Tournament was won by the un- defeated Senior Team. The Seniors won their last game against the Freshmen 2 to 0. The s tandings of the classes were as follows: Class Seniors Juniors Sophomores Freshmen Wen Lost Tied 3 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 3 0 200 The 1950 Hockey Honor Team, numbering about thirty-six girls, had an unavoidable short season. This was the twentieth year of varsity hockey at Rhody, the first women ' s varsity hockey team being organized in 1931. Plans were made for a playday at Kingston but the dates were not accept- able to colleges invited. On Saturday, October 21 , the honor team traveled to Bradford Junior Col- lege, Bradford, Massachusetts, where they played to a 1-1 tie with that team. A practice game was played with Elmhurst Academy on October 26, Rhody losing 4-0. The Honor Team was scheduled to play at the annual college playday held by the Boston Field Hockey Association at Wellesley College on November 4, but rain interfered with their plans. A new highlight to field hockey at Rhody this year was the sending of two girls in September to a field hockey and lacrosse camp, Camp Merestead, in Camden, Maine, with funds raised by a food sale held last Spring by the Women’s Athletic Association. Lee Thuotte and Jean Cruickshank, two Seniors, were chosen to attend the camp from all the members of the 1949 Honor Hockey Team. Under the able guidance of some of the best United States field hockey teachers and players Lee and Jean learned some new field hockey and lacrosse techniques.

Things have changed since the first women’s varsity basketball game, and the first game of any of the Rhody co-ed varsity sports, was played at Uconn in 1922 where the Rhody girls were victors by one point. The 1950-51 Basketball Season began with house practices held in November and will continue into the second semester, until March. The basketball season, like the hockey, is composed of three parts: the inter-house elimination tourna- ment, the class round-robin tournament, and the Honor Team games, in that order. Many girls par- ticipate in this popular sport, as they do in the other two major sports, hockey and volleyball. Davis Hall, the winners of the inter-house hockey tournament, also captured the inter-house basketball tournament this year, defeating Delta Zeta, last year ' s champions, by a slim one-point margin, 10-9. The game was a battle between two extremely evenly matched teams. Both houses em- ployed a tight zone defense which proved to be almost impenetrable in the first half of the game, for the half-time score was only 2-1 with Delta Zeta in the lead. The game was really won from the foul line, Delta Zeta converting only once in eight tries while Davis had five chances and made four conversions. 202 In the Class Tournament the Seniors conquered another championship; they were the basketball champs in their Junior year also. Their first game played against the Freshmen was an easy victory for the experienced Seniors,- they won 24-7. In their second game of the class tournament the Seniors won over their closest rival, the Sopho- mores, 11-4. In the last game, the Seniors enjoyed an easy victory over the Juniors, beating them 24-5 and conquering the basketball championship. The standings of the classes were as follows in the inter-class round-robin tournament: Class Seniors Sophomores Juniors Freshmen Won Lost Tied 3 0 0 2 1 0 1 2 0 0 3 0 The Basketball Honor Team started its varsity schedule on Saturday, January 13, by defeating the Providence Bible Institute 37-20 in a fast, thrilling game at Rodman Gymnasium. Cynthia Bennett, ’51, Rhody forward, tossed in eight baskets for the team and was high scorer of the game. The Rhody girls were out ahead throughout the whole game but the P. B. I. girls put on a good showing in the second-half. The Honor Team expects to have some basket- ball playdays in the Spring, 1951, semester and will probably play against Uconn and Pembroke teams.

Batar WOMEN’S RIFLE TEAM The Women ' s Rifle Team ended the 1949-1950 season on a high note at the Connecticut Gallery Match, New Haven, Connecticut, where they fired the highest score of all out-of-state women s teams. The first shoulder-to-shoulder match of the 1950-1951 season was lost to the R. I. S. C. Men ' s Rifle Team in November. The team has won its first two postal matches against women ' s rifle teams from the Universities of Colorado and Vermont. The first semester ' s firing ended with the losing of a dose-score shoulder-to-shoulder match against the Brown Naval R. O. T. C. team at Brown. During the second semester the team will again fire against the Brown N. R. O. T. C., the Univer- sity of Connecticut and the University of New Hampshire in our Rodman Range. More postal matches are also scheduled. The rifle team will travel to Connecticut in the spring to again enter the Gallery Matches. The Women ' s Rifle Club, National Rifle associ- ation members, elected the following officers for the 1950-1951 season: Terry Quonstrom, Captain Dorothy Silva, Co-captain Anna Ferreira, Manager Jeanne Moren, Assistant Manager Coaching the Women’s Rifle Club this year are Captain Milton Champlain and Sergeant B. Baker. 204 When the one great scorer Comes to write against your name He marks not that you won or lost ButTiow you played the game. — Grantland Rice 205 Planetarium During Construction PLANETARIUM The Planetarium reproduces the stars, planets, and other heavenly bodies in their true perspective and relationship as if the audience were outdoors on a clear night. It comfortably seats forty-four people Although it is primarily intended for students of astronomy, lectures and demonstrations are given from time to time to outside organiza- tions. Both the building and the projector were presented to the College anonymously and are the forerunners of a student observatory with all the necessary equipment, laboratories and lecture halls. The Planetarium is, in reality, a " visual aid " on a grand scale. It serves to bridge the gap between the text book and the skies and in par- ticular to help the student learn the constellations. Rhode Island State College is one of very few colleges fortunate enough to own a Planetarium such as this. 206 207 . . . . and now we leave CLASS OF 1951 Eager and filled with ambition, a new Freshman class descended on the Rhode Island State campus in September 1947. This class was destined to bring great fame to Rhody. Very shortly we were indoctrinated into the social life of the Campus by the Aggie Bawl, Soph Hop, Sigma Kappa Barn Dance, Sigma Delta Tau Candy Bawl, Military Bawl, Slide Rule Strut, and the many Fraternity formats. Bob Mason was elected to lead the class as President; Mary-Ann Hartley, Vice President; Ian Harrington, Treasurer, Dianne Kacena, Secretary; and Pat Nappi, Social Chairman. Delta Zeta’s Sally Kelleher became Co-ed Colonel and Lambda Chi’s Iggy Bailey became Mayor of Kingston after an exciting campaign. Our Sophomore year started with Fran Wilcox chosen President; Gloria Guisti, Vice President; Betty Corry, Secretary, George Nazarian, Treas- urer; and Charlie Moll, Social Chairman. The resignation of our famed Coach Keaney in the fall ended his long and profitable career as our basketball coach. Irene Bruisi reigned as queen of the Sophomore Hop and Ralph Stuart s orchestra supplied the music. George " Groucho Marx " Pinheiro won a superb mayoralty campaign by an overwhelming margin of votes. His motto was " Quinn fora Day. " The spring of this year witnessed such social affairs as Sigma Chi’s Barbary Coast Bawl, A. E. Pi’s Cabaret Vic Dance, Beta Phi ' s Nut House Brawl, Lambda Chi’s Ranch Dance, Phi Mu ' s Mexican Fiesta, Theta Chi’s Paddy Murphy’s Wake, and the Speak-easy Dance at T. K. E. We looked forward to attending them in future years. The student body presented the Rhody Revue to contribute to the Student Union Memorial Fund. Sigma Kappa and Beta Psi Alpha became the possessors of the Inter- House Sing cups for the year. September once again saw the energetic class of 1951 in the role of hard-working Juniors. Class elections were held with the following results: President, George Nazarian, Vice President, Bar- bara Skooglund, Secretary, Sally Hoyle,- Treasurer, Johnny Mitchell; and Social Chairman, Charlie Moll. Jack " Super Bulleit was the victor in the race for Mayor of Kingston. Fae Tilley was crowned Co-ed Colonel. The faculty Follies and Rhody Revue were a huge success and our Union plans started to materi- alize. With the passage of the bond issue R. I. State began to gain a constructive appearance as the Men’s Dormitories and new Chemistry Building proceeded to take shape. With the resignation of Coach Beck and the introduction of Hall Kopp as our new coach the Rhody football picture looked very promising. Dan Bolhouse was elected Editor-in-chief of the Beacon; Norm Steadman and Owen Kwasha were elected Editor and Business Manager, re- spectively, of the Grist. The following members of our class were tap- ped by Sachems: Marshall Rakusin, Fae Tilley, Ruth Norwood, John Mitchell, Clint Kennedy, Ira Murphy, George Nazarian, Joan Beattie, and Bob Mason. With the assistance a nd guidance of Dean Quinn an honorary society, the Blue Key, was formed. Members in our class elected to this were: Marshall Rakusin, Paul Lennon, John King, Fae Tilley, and Beverly Strauss. Rita Geoghegan was crowned queen of the Junior Prom held at the Sheraton-Biltmore Hotel and we all danced to the beautiful strains of Blue Barron’s orchestra. June, the Pier, and exams were upon us as we left this illustrious year of our college life. Our last year on campus witnessed the return of Freshman " Beanies.” Chosen to lead the class were: George Nazar- ian, President; Sally Hoyle, Vice President; Shirley Steere, Secretary; John Hunniwell, Treasurer; and Charlie Moll, Social Chairman. The football season was a moderate success as far as scores were concerned, but spirit rose to the A-1 rank. Draft notices were being issued once again and threats of a third world war loomed on the horizon. Twelve Seniors were listed in ' Who s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Univer- sities " and they were: Joan Beattie, Sally Hoyle, Clinton Kennedy, John Kitchin, Robert Mason, John Mitchell, Ira Murphy, George Nazarian, Ruth Norwood, Marshall Rakusin, Beverly Strauss, and Fae Tilley. The Student Senate moved smoothly along under the direction of President Marshall Rakusin, - Vice President, John Hutchinson,- and Secretary, Tricia Lovett. The Men ' s Dorms were named Bressler and Butterfield Halls in honor of two past Presidents of the college. We now look forward to the festivities of graduation, and plans for the future are finally becoming a realization. Beverly N. Strauss 210 GEORGE S.

Hall ' 32, alumni secretary and Raymond H. Stockard ' 39, director of placement. ALUMNI AND PLACEMENT OFFICES Upon graduation, members of the senior class automatically become “members-for-life ' of the Alumni Association. Through the Alumni Office, the Placement Office, the alumni clubs and class organizations, the more than 6000 graduates of the College are kept in constant touch with events at Kingston. Down through the years, members of the Alumni Association have acted as College ambassadors-at-large, interpreting the College to the general public through personal contacts and by means of a continued public information pro- gram. With their help, monies for new buildings have been appropriated, curricula have been ex- panded, larger budget appropriations assured, and scholarships and loan funds for needy students have been established. The work of the Associa- tion is financed by subscriptions to the Annual Alumni Fund. The Placement Office provides its services for Rhody men and women in all three phases of their association with the college. First, it is a central agency for all student part-time work during under- graduate days. For seniors the office offers oppor- tunities for vocational counseling, arranges for personal interviews and supplies innumerable con- tacts for personal follow-up. Finally, through its contacts, both locally and nationally, the office is able to put experienced alumni in touch with desirable job opportunities. Through integrated records, the Alumni and Placement Offices attempt to keep track of the activities of all our alumni. Changes of addresses, marriages, births, changes of employment, out- standing achievements, service records and the like are all part of the record. Rhode Island State College never forgets a graduate. The history of their lives is part of the nistory of our College. We, the Class of 1951, have the opportunity to keep our class spirit strong and our personal enthusiasm for the College alive by co-operating with these two offices. 309 SENIOR OFFICERS SECRETARY Shirley Steere TREASURER SOCIAL CHAIRMAN John Hunnewell Charlie Moll 310 1st Row: Jackie Kenyon, Ruth Benson. 2nd Row: Stephen Aldrich, Hugh Vigoroso JUNIOR OFFICERS TREASURER Hugo Vigoroso SECRETARY SOCIAL CHAIRMAN Ruth Benson Roger Shawcross PRESIDENT Stephen Aldrich VICE PRESIDENT Jackie Kenyon 311 1st Row: Patricia King, 2nd Row: Bruce Crow Sandy Zambarano. ell, Arthur Roche, R.chard Buba.
