Therefore we dedicate this book tp®ie continued realization in bur lives of this idea and ideal. Class of 1955 Table of Contents Dedication President’s Message Class Advisor’s Message Senior Class Officers Senior Class Campus Queens Union Dedication Societies Professional Organizations Student Executive Councils new Rhode Island Memorial Union: It is fitting that our yearbook should find its home in this splendid structure, the heart of campus life where the varied program of extracurricular activities comes to a focus. The Union is indeed a laboratory of democracy. Through the pages of the Grist will be a record of the democratic process at work in the various facets of university life — self-government marked by free speech in the Senate Chamber; free speech also over the radio station; a free press producing the Beacon and the Grist — freedom with responsibility on the part of the students, counseling and advice without censorship on the part of the faculty. These are the experiences and the kind of teamwork that are typical of the American democratic tradition. You members of the senior class have reason to be gratified that a long-time co-operative effort was climaxed in your senior year and you were privileged to enjoy the benefits resulting from an effort in which you have played an important part. We are sure that for years to come you will treas- ure the Grist as a record of your undergraduate days, and that it will serve as a lasting bond with your alma mater. With every good wish, CARL R. WOODWARD President Watching this physical expansion fortable perspective of our peaceful college, you may have easily forgotten the transitory nature of mortar and bricks. The secure individual in a troubled age such as yours must possess a solid foundation of basic intel- lectual principles, a framework of absolute ethical concepts, and a facility for adjustment and conversion to unpredictable circumstances. His greatest fear will lie, not in the destruction of his familiar physical surroundings, but in his inability to realize his great- est human potential; the constant struggle to improve his small corner of the world. In becoming such a fearless individual, each of you has the fondest hopes of your academic associates of the last four years, the faculty of the University of Rhode Island.

East Hall September, and East Hall welcomed us to the glorious Uni- versity of Rhode Island campus. Our two rather unladylike predecessors; hurricanes Carol and Edna, had slightly upset the beauty of the campus, but nevertheless, our early days of the school year were off to a successful start — both socially and scholastically. We all had an opportunity to plan a surprise party [pr the upperclass members of our house. This unexpected party cer- tainly caught our friends off their guard! In the campus SQcial whirl East Hall again made its debut; our candidate for the queen of the Aggie Bawl brought home the beautiful loving-cup. To East Hall our fondest thanks for a year of happy friend- ships and successful intellectual endeavors. Row L: E. Sargent, D. Armstrong, R. Labush, B. Baxter, C. Cha ves, F. Townsend, E. Smith, J.

The basis of this is, of course, its residents who make up a fine versatile group of girls. The biggest thrill of the first semester was the winning of the basketball trophy, which brought with it much honor and pride. The girls gave their annual Christmas party for the orphans which made many children happy and gave Eleanor Roosevelt girls a feeling of satisfaction. The Home- coming float added much color to the biggest week- end of the year. With all this well-founded organiza- tion we can easily see even better and more wonderful years for Eleanor Roosevelt Hall. Polygon Row 1 : E. Kerins, H. Henn, Vice-Pres., R. McDonald, Pres., G.

The purpose of Polygon is to promote a friendly spirit among the fraternities, to formulate and oversee rushing rules and resolutions relating to fraternities, to regulate interfraternity activities, and to promote the welfare and interest of the fraternities associated in this organization. All fraternities on the U. R. I. campus are represented in Polygon, and each house has one vote. 108 Row 1 : D. Yarlas, S. Wexler, L. Gluckman, J. Burzon. Row 2: E. Karp, H. Goldstein, M.

Beta Psi Alpha Beta Psi Alpha was established in 1932, and 8 years later, through the efforts of the Brotherhood, a fine chapter house was built. The house accommodates 42 students very comfortably, and also pro- vides for its commuters. In a relatively short period of time, Beta Psi Alpha has grown into a brotherhood that exceeds well over 400 members. Although Beta Psi Alpha is one of the youngest fraternities on campus, its members have certainly won a great deal of recognition by their scholastic, athletic, and social achievements. no Row 1: C.

For the first time in many years the house did not smell like the Rhody cow barn, reason — no aggies. Fraternity pins were as scarce as ever and several more became members of the ball and chain gang. The past has been a pleasant one and let us all hope there is more of the same for all in the future. 112 Row 1 : W. Mulhall, A. Rogers, D. Todd, F. Varieur, N. Soderberg, W. Munk, R. Buser.

Phi Kappa Theta This past year, Phi Kappa Theta has made its mark in intramural ath- letics by creditable performances in basketball and football and the winning of the Softball trophy for the 1954 season. Homecoming, the Hayride in the rain, the pledges who got lost, bull sessions, and the meetings will be the cherished memories of our graduating seniors. Behind him, each senior leaves a part of himself. Through Brother- hood he has strengthened his Fraternity. Through the Fraternity he has strengthened HIMSELF. In 1947 at Rhode Island State College, several intimate friends decided to form a club for the purpose of placing their " friendship on a firmer and more lasting basis.” The Acquinas Club formed by these men became the Phi Kappa Theta Fraternity on June 6, 1949- In the six years since the birth of Phi Kappa Theta, we have seen our College grow into a University. Our Fraternity has steadily progressed toward becoming a strong and lasting organization. y 1 , iv Row 1 : J. Abizaid, A. Smith, J. O ' Donnell, E. Sangster, D. Hall, R. Harrison, R. Anderson, F.

Phi Mu Delta Phi Mu Delta was founded in 1918 by the universities of New Hamp- shire, Vermont, and Connecticut. The Rhode Island chapter was originally a local fraternity founded by eleven students who petitioned the college admin- istration in 1924 and received a charter for Delta Sigma Epsilon. Shortly after, what is now the Village Church House became the first chapter house. In 1929 the local was absorbed by the National Phi Mu Delta and chartered as Nu Eta Chapter. The recent building was occupied in 1932. 114 Row 1 : A. Hutnek, T. Croasdale, J. Short, R. Rochefort, Sec., R. Follett, Pres., Dr. Bell, Fac. Adv., P. Cofoni, Vice-Pres., J. Monti., Treas., R.

Phi Sigma Kappa 1954-55 will leave many memories for us at Phi Sig — a lively, hard- working pledge class, who brought home the Alumni Cup for the Home- coming display — the dedication of a punch bowl to the New Student Union in memory of those of Phi Sigma Kappa who gave their lives in World War II — coffee hours — pledge formal — Christmas party for underprivileged children — costume dance — the beach party — and of course, all the fond greetings of brothers, and the bull sessions. To the graduates, the best of luck and success, and to the remaining brothers — keep up the good work. 115 Row 1 : E. Lindquist, N. Sefton, D. Norton, Treas., K. Apkarian, Pres., E.

Rho Iota Kappa The past few years have been great ones for Rhody’s first fraternity. They have marked the burning of the house’s mortgage, the completion of a program of renovation, the repetition of intramural cross-country, football, and basketball successes, the retiring of the intramural debating cup, the out- standing performances of PIK varsity athletes, such as Marozzi, Von Weyhe, Apkarian, Schult, and Foster, the realization of truly great Nut House Bawls, and finally the publication of a new house magazine, THE PIK DIAMOND. Most important, however, is the fact that Rho Iota Kappa has continued to maintain and nurture the indestructable principle of fraternity that has typified her spirit since her founding almost a half century ago. 116 Row 1: J.

It is impossible to recall all the good times we have had, and equally difficult to forget the friendships we have made. Who can remember everything about the Metacomet or the " Shuffle?” and how about Homecoming weekend? These are some of the things we will never fully recall yet we will think of them often. Although many will never actually live here again, we can always return and be welcome, because that’s the way it is with Sigma Alpha Epsilon. 117 JL _ ff ' jr (M JnJ| 13 Row 1 : P. McGinley, B.

Sigma Chi We, the brothers of Sigma Chi, will remember this year as one filled with happy events and experiences that have further enriched our lives scholastically, fraternally, and socially. As the year comes to a close, we wish the graduating class much happi- ness and success after a hard fought four years. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Sigma Chi and it is our wish that this chapter will someday reach the centennial year and still be a part of the University of Rhode Island, which according to the ideals of the fraternity is our first loyalty. 118 Row 1 : W.

A1 Germani, Bruce Lang, and Bruno Beer were just three of this great pledge class. After two days of getting paint all over our clothes and not on the walls we settled down to the serious business of wine, women, and song. We also did a little studying to break the monotony. The year was loaded with color including a certain Blue Tip. We will miss our departing seniors. They are Muscles, " Basil,” " Count Profanity,” " Ibn,” " Chippe,” " Wee Willie, " Willie Loblatt,” " Nervoue,” and " Bernie.” We wish them all luck and we look forward to an even greater success next year.

Theta Chi We’ve had some good times this year. For example, the social season with such stalwarts as the Beaux Arts Ball, Paddy Murphy’s Wake and the Formals were supplemented by social hours, faculty guests for dinner, Vic dances and, of course, the spontaneous Saturday night parties. It got so bad even Too ly had a date. In the house there were the friendships, laughs, those insidious bull ses- sions and other items too humorous to mention. Then, there ' s the I. A.

The main purposes of our organization is to develop so- cial life in the dorm, to achieve a voice in campus activities, and to promote self-government within the dormitory. During the past year we have held many successful social events — a vie dance in the rec room, a re- ception for the alumni on homecoming, and a Christmas party. We feel that ours has been a very prosperous year and are looking forward to a much better and stronger organization in the coming years. 124 Row 1 : J. Foley, M. Manekofsky, Sec., D.

Butterfield Hall With a lot of ambition the Butterfield Dormitory got started on its activities last May, and notwith- standing the difficulties, it has placed itself on the map. There was a picnic, a coffee hour, a Christmas Party, and other events which all of us enjoyed. The fireplace kept going all Winter and gave atmosphere to the lounge. A lot of struggling took place and it resulted in a stronger association. Our student sena- tors, floor representatives and officers tried hard to do their best. Today, Butterfield is a campus entity. " Education conies not from books alone. " ACTIVITIES Row 1 : N. Peterson, C. Chapman, A. Shaw, Treas., B. Lewis, Vice- Pres., Rev. Fetter, Fac. Adv„ D.

Apart from having representation on the R. I. Council of Nursing Students, a delegate is sent yearly to the National Student Nurse Association Convention. The students also sup- port the Isabel M. Stewart Scholarship Fund. Missing from the picture are the Juniors and Seniors who are at present in the clinical areas. Nutrix Row 1 : J. Nichols, P. Cunningham, N. Foster, M. Sykes, Fac. Adv., R.

Wranglers Portia " Remember the issues” is a phrase the Rhode Island de- baters will long remember after they stop packing their bags to go to tournaments. Spending long hoflrS ' fn the library, ana- lyzing evidence, learning to think logically — these are things the debaters will never forget. This year the debaters went to New York University, University of Connecticut, Brown, and the University of Vir- ginia. In addition to the tournaments, there were bi-monthly radio shows, the College Congress, and the High School Con- gress to round out a busy year. 142 The main purpose of the Economics Club is to enlighten students on domestic and international affairs in the economic sphere and is composed of any member of the student body who wishes to join. However, it is also open to any member of the community who wishes to attend its meetings. It was or- ganized in February of 1954. In conjunction with the main purpose of this club is the purpose of hearing as many speak- ers on as many subjects in the economic world as possible, e.g. international trade and business cycles.

Staff membership is open to anyone interested and willing to work, and contributions of sufficiently high ' caliber are accepted from both on-campus and extension students. This year for the first time, THE PURITAN gave up its intimate pocket- si 2 e format in favor cffi the larger t)” x 12 " , size preferred by " big-college” magazines. The staff members also offered a twenty-five dollar prize for the best short story submitted to them. Puritan Row 1 : L. Sarkisian, Editor; E. Northup, Art Editor; E. Bliampcis. Row 2 : W.

In 1948, equipment for a 400 watt station, KIKMV, was constructed, making it possible to contact other amateurs throughput the United States and Canada. Membership in the Radio Club is open to anyone in- terested in amateur radio communication. 146 This year’s University Band set a new high for fineness of performance and appearance. We are all indeed grateful to the Patrons’ Association whose efforts made possible our new uniforms. A special word of thanks goes to Professor Mary C. Whitlock, College of HomeEconomicsjforher time and effort in assisting the Music Department in the design pf the new uniforms. Strengthened b y the increasing enrollment of music majors, the marching " blue and white| assumed a greater role in college activities. Under the leadership of Professor Frank Van Buren, the Band performed at all home football games and added new dolor to rallies. The annual Christmas and Spring concerts were greatly lenjoyed jjy 1 all. Each member of the organization deserves a hearty " thanks” for an admirable job. BAND OFFICERS President Vice President Secretary-Treasurer Social Chairman Band Manager Drum Major Laura Cook Madeleine Bousquet Alexander Gavitt Douglas Richardson William Croasdale Conrad McKnight University Band UNIVERSITY ORCHESTRA The University Orchestra made up of stu- dents and augmented by faculty members and a few townspeople was increased this year to a total of thirty members. Instrumentation has been improved to the point where the standard symphonic literature can be included in its repertoire. The Orchestra rehearses once each week and has played one major program each semester. Soloists in the Spring concert were Madeleine Bousquet, pianist, and Carl Jack- son, violinist. Thomas Worthington is the manager, and Professor Arnold Clair of the Music Department, the director. UNIVERSITY CHORUS The major performances of the University Chorus for the past year included a Christmas Concert, the feature work " The Christ Child, by J. C. Bach. In the Spring semester a joint concert with Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Becker College in Worcester, Massachusetts, will be held on campus. Music of J. C. Bach, Mozart, Wagner, along with " Showboat Med- lies” by Kern wil l be sung as major portions of the performance.

WRIU The campus Radio Station, WRIU, which was formed in 1939 adds to the University community the service of radio broadcasting from a student’s viewpoint. This organization, open to any interested regularly enrolled student of the Uni- versity of Rhode Island, has grown in size and popularity into one of the largest student organizations on campus numbering 125 active participants. Music, news, sports, and special pro- grams constitute WRIU airtime. WRIU has grown from a small group of radio enthusiasts, to South Hall where it be- came a member of the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, and then to new quarters in the Rhode Island Memorial Union, which is now housing the " Voice of U. R. I.” 150 151 Row 1 : B. Wilson, A. LaPrise, D. Walker, Sec.; W. Arnold, Pres.; A. Dressier, Vice-Pres.; B. Boss, Treas.; R. Halt, D. Chaplin. Row 2; P. Gladue, R. Carreiro, T. Turner, N. Turner, H.

The Beacon The college weekly paper, the BEACON, was first printed in 1908, and was a small ten page booklet printed once a month. At present, the BEACON operates in a professional manner, published each Wednesday, with a twelve jto sixteen page issue and a circulation of over 2,400 including students, faculty, and alumni. Experience in all fields of writing: news, sports and fea- tures, are open to any interested student as well as opportuni- ties in makeup work and in the contaercial aspects of journal- ism such as advertising [and circulation. The election of op|§b is held in the early part of the to afford the incoming officers the benefits of pub- second graduating seniors’ experience. The BEACON is representative of student effo lishing editorials, information, articles, and ideas of si: college problems. 158 The Rhode Island Club is an honorary organization of varsity lettermen. The club enforces the rules regarding the wearing of the letter and aids in the promotion of athletics at the college. In addition to its athletic guidance program, the club takes part in many campus activities, the feature of which is the annual spring banquet. Also, there is the Rhode Island Club Alumni Carnival Dance, featured for each Homecoming Weekend. At the finish of each school year, honorary keys are pre- sented to the most outstanding members of the club. R. I. Club 160 Row 1 : R. Conde, R. Conde, Treas.; H. Tremblay, Pres.; J. Wojcik, E.

Cheerleaders Rhody’s cheerleaders are an enthusiastic and vivacious group of students who promote good sportsmanship and add a spark to the football and basketbalLgames. They can always be seen leading the spirit at all the home games and as many of the " Away” as possible. Our squad this year . sparked the athletic events with or- iginality, pep, and color. With Doris Thomas as their Captain, they introduced new cheers and flashed Pom-Poms, never used before at Rhody. They also added a. touch of " Ivy” with their gray Bermuda shorts. 161 As a member of the New England Collegiate Rifle League, the varsity rifle team represents 1 a serious threat to member teams as they vie for league honors. This year’s team has benefited greatly from the experience of such sharpshoot- ers of past years, as Alan Wright and Art Schreiner, to say noth- ing of the outstanding performances by the Goldman twins, Art Tougas, Joel Rosen, Robert Heisienger. Old timers, with an eye to the future, are keeping close watch on some very promising Freshman material which should serve to bolster the Varsity Team when competition commences again this fall.

Intercollegiate Dinghy Team The 1954 season found Rhody consistently among the country’s top dinghy teams. Their most noted performance was finishing second out of a 13 team field in the Boston Dinghy Club Cup. Among the teams placing lower than the Rams, was MIT, which later became the 1954 National Champions. Led by their national ranking skippers, Brad Boss and Bruce Loring, the outlook for the 1955 Spring season is bright and includes an expected birth in the National Championships to be held at Boston, as well as an invitation to sail the 42 ' Annapolis yawls in the McMillan Cup Regatta at Annapolis, Maryland. 163 Row 1 : P.

NORTHEASTERN AT KINGSTON A couple of inconsiderate and uninvited guests, Carol and % slowed pre-season training considerably. , " ith the traning thus set back several days, and being short-handed to start with, the Rams entered the opener against M «.v, eastern slight underdogs.

The lone R. I. score came on a three-yard punch by sophomore Montanaro. This was the game which eventually decided the Yankee Conference championship. The Wildcats and the Rams finished 1-2. AT BROWN Fed people gave Rhody a chance in this contest. Pat Ab- bruzzi managed to get into the game, but he aggravated his ankle and was put out of action again. Cahill and Ed DiSimone also received injuries. The great Brown team, itself injury-rid- dled, plastered Rhode Island with its only shutout of the sea- son, 35-0, before 15,000 fans at Brown Stadium. This was the game in which Les Peavy, Bruin guard, crashed head-on into DiSimone and received a brain concussion. MASSACHUSETTS AT KINGSTON The Redmen come to town with a 3-0 record. They were overrated, but heavily fa- vored; the Rams were mad. All of the Kingstonites played well that drizzly after- noon and UMass took a 52-6 beating from an undisputably better team. Ed DiSimone turned in a spectacular five TD-performance. Four of his scores were on short bucks and one a pass from Mon- tanaro. Sophomore Johnny Leach, starting his first game at URI, announced himself as future potential when he legged it 48 yards for a score. Montanaro and a third sophomore, Ken Seal, scored the other touchdowns. Hail! Hail! The gang ' s all here . . . 165 Excuse My Back! HOFSTRA AT KINGSTON Rhody almost matched its UMass performance with a 46-14 win over Hofstra. Ed DiSimone con- tinued his yeoman work with two touchdowns. Ka- zar Apkarian, returning to the football wars after a year ' s absence, also scored twice. Leach contributed one and even Chris Latos, Rhody ' s outstanding guard and game captain, scored after intercepting a Hofs- tra pass. The game marked a return to action of tackle Charlie Gibbons and back Pat Abbruzzi. The latter scored on a play which was probably the prettiest of Full House the season. The Rams lined up for a field goal. Dick Grann kicking and DiPiro holding. Dipiro took the pass from center and threw to Abbruzzi on the left as Grann blocked out the oppositions. Pat carried two men into the end zone with him. This play was repeated successfully against Connecticut, although Abbruzzi was stopped this time on the two-yard line. AT SPRINGFIELD Rhode Island threw a big goose-egg at the In- dians in a game which featured defense. Abbruzzi and DiSimone scored the two touchdowns in the 13-0 decision. Clear The Road! CONNECTICUT AT KINGSTON Rhody closed its season with another shutout, this one a 20-0 kick in UConn’s face. Pat Abbruzzi, playing his last collegiate football game, gained 221 yards alone and scored two touchdowns, one a 37-yard jaunt. DiSimone rang up the other tally. The Homecoming crowd of 6,200 saw the Rams defeat the Huskies for the third straight year. ODDS AND ENDS Pat Abbruzzi was named on the first All-Yankee Conference eleven for the fourth straight year. Tackle Dick Grann, guard Henry Brenner, and back Ed DiSimone were second-team selections. Guard Chris Latos received third-team honors . . . DiSimone was the team ' s leading scorer, ground gainer, and punter . . .

Credit is due head coach Jack Guy and his assist- ant, Herb Maack, for a job well done. The Rams won seven of their last ten games; hit the century mark five times; broke the Keaney Gym record against New Hampshire; broke four records against Massachusetts at Amherst; and compile an excel- lent won-lost percentage while playing a schedule which most observers think to be their toughest in recent years. Highlights of the season were: the appearance of the Rhody team in the All-American City Invitational Tournament at Owensboro, Kentucky, during the Christmas holidays; the return of Holy Cross to the list of opponents; and victories over St. Joseph’s and Colgate. The Rams started their season by playing an ex- hibition game with UConn to help the Huskies dedi- cate their new field house at Storrs. Connecticut had already played several exhibitions and their team was in mid-year form. Rhode Island absorbed its worst beating of the season in its opener, but showed considerable improvement in the two other UConn games. Rebounding Rhody upset St. Joseph’s in an ex- cellently played contest which opened Kingston ' s home season. In the Owensboro, Kentucky tournament, the Rams started off with a bang, breaking a record against Kentucky Wesleyan. Two games later, Evans- ville reset the record, using Rhody as victim. Two victories over Brown preceded the Holy Cross game in which All-American candidate, Tom Hein- sohn, led the Crusader team to a decisive win over Rhody. The Colgate game had as an exciting a climax as we have seen in Kingston in recent years. Behind, 65- 55 at the half, Rhode Island staged a near-miraculous rally to send the game into overtime, and subsequent- ly pulled it out by one point. Against UMass, the one-and-two team total rec- ords fell, as did the individual field goal mark. Billy VonWeyhe broke the mark by sinking fourteen two- pointers. Sophomore VonWeyhe and two other second-year men, Ron Marozzi and Angelo " Junior” Dagres, were standouts all season long. Co-captains Dave Sten- house and Art Hellwig, the only seniors on the squad, played their usual excellent brand of ball. Two jun- iors, Eric Anderson and Bob Stairs, contributed their height efficiently in the backboard wars. Stairs han- dled the all-important job of spark-plugging Rhody ’s second-half rallies. With all but two of this year’s lettermen return- ing, next season promises to be even better. At last, the Rams are ready to resume their status as one of the top small-college teams in the East!

Tootell and Malcolm M. Williams. The squad consisted of Henry Tremblay, Stu Smith, Ed LaPierre, Bill Turnbull, Bill Hammond, Ray McGuire, Glenn Smith, Bill MacQuattie, Harry Hampson and George Brown. Seniors included Tremblay, S. Smith, Hammond and Mc- Guire. The record stood at fi ve wins, one loss and one tie. The tie was the first in Coach Tootell’s experience of thirty years while here at the university. Rhody open their season by downing Springfield, 20-30. Tremblay and Hammond were two-three, while Hampson and Smith took the fifth and sixth spots. The second meet found the Ram harriers winning impressively, 20-35 over Ford- ham as MacQuattie, Hampson, S. Smith, Tremblay and Hammond finished 2-6 respec- tively. Rhody’s third encounter was a loss to Northeastern’s Huskies, 27-30, but the Rams did take the first position as Harry Hampson outlegged the crew. Following Hampson were S. Smith (3,) Tremblay ( 5 ), MacQuattie (9) and LaPierre (12). Providence College fell to the Rams under a 24-31 assault in Rhody’s fourth meet. Bill MacQuattie led the parade with a second position followed by Hank Tremblay, third, Harry Hampson, fifth, Bill Hammond, sixth, and S. Smith, eighth. The Bruins of Brown University underwent a very sound trouncing as the Ram har- riers " went to town, " 17-41. Hank Tremblay garnered a first position in this one with Hampson, second, MacQuattie, third, LaPierre, fifth and Hammond, sixth. Tremblay covered the Bruin course of 4.3 miles in 22:03. In the first tie in thirty years of cross-country varsity competition at the University of Rhode Island, the Connecticut Huskies deadlocked the Rams, 28-28. Although the team ran its fastest individual time of the season, not enough members finished high to score effectively. Harry Hampson was first for Rhody and third in the meet followed by MacQuattie, fourth, Tremblay, fifth, Hammond, seventh, and LaPierre, ninth. In the final dual meet of the year, Rhody downed New Hampshire 25V2-29V2 in a thriller. Harry Hampson and Hank Tremblay finished 3-4, while Bill MacQuattie tied for fifth spot, 5. 5-5.5, and S. Smith, seventh, and Ed LaPierre, eighth, finished up. The remaining meets of the season found the Rams third in the Yankee Confer- ence Championships with a 72 team total. In the NEICAAA, they were fourth in a field of fifteen schools, and the ICAAAA found them in seventeenth position of 24 participants. The Rams didn’t score in the NCAA. 171 Track and Field TRACK RECORD Rhode Island 971 2 Boston College 37 2 Rhode Island 83Vi Springfield 531 2 Rhode Island 95 Providence College 40 Rhode Island 90 Brown 45 In Varsity Track and Field, during the Spring of 1954, the Rhode Is- land Rams garnered a 4-0 slate. The track squad, again coached by Fred D. Tootell and Malcolm M. Williams, consisted of Indoor trackmen Joe Pizzo, Bill Morris, Don Walsh, Stu Smith, Kazar Apkarian, Francis Brown, Bob Horton, and Charley Guber. Outdoor trackmen found the above men minus Horton, plus Hank Tremblay, Steve Cook, Sherwood Friend, George Dodson, Joe Short, Stan Chorney, Vic Nerses, LeRoy Grinnell Bill Mac- Quattie, Charlie Gibbons, Bob Taylor, Bob Conde and Bob Sands. Also, Bob Avila, Ron Bedard, Joe Coleman, Bob Carulo, Joe Dawson Dick Fuller, Bill Hammond, Ray McGuire, Dave Makiri, Dick Oster Tony Rufo, Paul Sullivan, Vern Tuxbury, Hugh Wright and Don Yarlas. The first meet of the season saw the Rams take Boston College 97 y 2 - 371 2. Rhody captured first place in ten of the fifteen events and swept all placings in five contests. One of the most exciting events of the day was in the 880 when Stu Smith bested Bill MacQuattie by a very slim margin. Bob Sands was handed his only defeat of the season in the 100 yard dash in this meet. Springfield was the next team to fall, 83! 2-53l 2. Rhody, in meeting their toughest test, boasted ten firsts which provided the margin of victory. The surprise of the meet was Don Walsh’s win in the 440, where the Rams copped all three places. Another high point was Kazar Apkarian’s shot-put throw of 49 feet, 7 inches. Bill MacQuattie ' s photo-finish over Stu Smith in the half-mile made him a double winner of the day since he had earlier won the mile. This was Smith’s only defeat in the half-mile of the season. 172 After rain said good-by to the Connecticut meet, the Rams chased the Providence College Friars all over the field to the tune of 95-40. The Rams scored heavily in the weight events in this meet. Rhody took twelve first places and four complete events. Bill Morris took two spots for the meet’s only double winner in the broad jump and low hurdles. Morris made a jump of 22 feet, 10 inches in the broad jump for his finest effort in dual meet competition. Bob Taylor ' s record breaking hammer throw and Bob Sands ' ten second 100 yard dash were other highlights. Rhode Island ended its dual meet season with an impressive 90-45 victory over Brown. Bill Morris again was a double winner, taking the broad jump and low hurdles in fine form. Joe Pizzo was high point man for the Rams, scoring in the 440, javelin and 220. The half-mile provided the best race of the day as Stu Smith won by a few strides over the nearest Bruin. Bill MacQuattie and Bob Con- de finished three-four. MacQuattie earlier had won a thriller in the mile with a 4:30 clocking. The Yankee Conference Champion- ship meet found Coach Tootell’s forces winning an unprecedented sev- enth consecutive track title. Tootell has won every Yankee Conference track meet since the six state univer- sities became a playing conference back in 1948. Rhody’s all-time scor- ing mark is 474% 2 . In the NEICAAA competition, Rhody finished third of 23 entered schools. The records set by current track performers at Rhode Island include the following: 100 yard dash — Sands — 1954 — 9.9 (tied) 440 yard dash — Pizzo — 1954 — 4:23.4 220 yard dash — Guber — 1954 — 21.9 Shot-put — Apkarian — 1953 — 49 feet, 8 Vs inches. Javeline — Pizzo — 1954 — 179 feet, 8 inches. These records are all for Yankee Conference Championship meets. 173 Row 1 : Coach Paul Cieurzo, J. Marble, R. Scorpio, E. Cohan, B. Mendes, D. Foster, E. Golden, F. LaPiana. Golf The Universiry of Rhode Island Golf Team, coached by Paul F. Cieurzo, had a fine season on the links in Yankee Conference play and other matches. As their record indicates, the team had some tough, close defeats, but always played with determination and dexterity. Ben Mendes and Ed Golden were co- captains, while other squad members found Ed Cohan, Jim Marble, Dave Foster, Ralph Scorpio and Fred LaPiana competing throughout the Spring. Of these seven members, Golden, Mendes, Cohan and LaPiana were seniors. The season opened against Maine where the Ram " divot diggers " prevailed 1414-121 2 over the Black Bears. With the combinations of Mendes-Scorpio, Golden-Cohan, and Foster-Marble, the team won its first two. Af ter Maine came a 2314-314 trouncing to Bates and then losses to Colby, Maine, Brown and Connecticut. The NEI-YC play found Rhode Is- land with a combined total of 330 strokes and a 17th place rating of 21 participating teams. Ben Mendes had the top individual score for the Rams and was among the top 16 scorers of the tourney. The final match of the year came against Trinity when Rhody absorbed a 2014-614 loss. The overall record stood at 2 wins and 5 defeats. Tennis Rhode Island’s varsity tennis team, under coach John L. Chapman, turned in a good net season. Paced by lettermen Pete Vieria, Joe Diurni, Ken Aldrich, John Reardon, Jack Bailey and Art Helmus, the squad played a total of nine matches, five of which were Yankee Conference play. Vieria, Dunrni, Aldrich and Reardon were the senior team members with Duirni as Captain. Bailey was a junior while Helmus was a sopho- more. Sometimes playing in poor conditions, the team lost its first two matches to Maine by the combined totals of 5-4 and 6-3. The Rams’ only win of the season came when they blanked New Hampshire’s Wildcats, 9-0. The team then fell into a tailspin, los- ing its final six matches. However, conditions of playing areas due to the weather and many other factors did much to influence the outcome of the season. The overall slate stood at one win and eight losses. 174 Baseball BASEBALL RECORD Rhode Island 7 Rhode Island 0 Rhode Island 9 Rhode Island 2 Rhode Island 1 Rhode Island 1 Springfield Rhode Island 9 Maine Rhode Island 0 Rhode Island 0 Rhode Island 0 Rhode Island 5 Rhode Island 0 Rhode Island 0 Rhode Island 1 Rhode Island 11 Rhode Island 2 Rhode Island 1 Trinity Boston College Newport N. T. S. Brown Maine New Hampshire Brown Providence College Providence College Connecticut Massachusets Massachusetts Quonset Springfield Connecticut 2 Coach Bill Beck with a squad of seventeen players, thirteen of these lettermen, turned in a very fine year of the diamond sport with a record of 5-12. The over- all slate does not actually tell the true story at first glance. The actual results can be supplemented by a few statistics showing the hard luck in which this team was playing. During the season, the Rams lost a total of six one-run affairs while winning only two of this variety. They were whitewashed six times whereas the pitching staff blanked the opposition but twice. Extra-inning contests were in order, as the team played four of these, three of which they lost by a score of 1-0. The fourth was a four hour, 17 inning affair against Springfield which the Gym- nasts took 5-2. The team consisted of the starting nine composed of regulars, Jack Wojcik, Dick Cahill, Pete DiMasi, Dick Lendrum, Pat Abbruzzi, Gene Edwards, John Pagano, Ken Dellner, and a pitcher. Of these regu- lars, Captain John Pagano was the only senior on a squad of six juniors and ten sophomores. The re- maining lettermen who alternated quite regularly at their respective positions were Pete Barchi and Doug Hopper. The remainder of the squad found Bill Tweedell, Jim Norman, Bill Considine, and John " Whitey” O’Donnell. Of course, the pitching staff consisted of Dave Stenhouse, Carl Stahl, Dick Nord- berg and Tony Horton. Rhody’s first game saw Trinity fall under an eleven hit barrage, 7-2. Stenhouse and Nordberg combined on a five-hitter with ten walks and thir- teen strikeouts. Lendrum collected the first base-hit while Edwards had three and Wojcik two. 175 Boston College took the Rams into camp by shutting them out, 7-0 in the second encounter for Rhode Island. Rhody garnered only five singles through- out the afternoon while Stenhouse needed late inning aid from Stahl. The next seven games went into the lost column for the diamond sport. The baseballers, with a 9-8 win over Newport Naval Training Station in a practice encounter, won only this game in eight consecutive. Brown began the losing streak by a 3-2 count as Stenhouse again started and went the distance. The ninth inning saw Pete Barchi, in a clutch pinch role, spank a ringing two-run double to left, but the Rams couldn’t quite squeeze it out and lost by one marker. Dave allowed nine hits and four bases- on-balls while whiffing ten Bruins. Maine ' s Black Bears plus Old Man Weather chilled Rhody ’s winning as- pirations 3-1 in a rain-abbreviated five-innning at Meade Field in the fifth game. Carl Stahl went the shortened distance, allowing only three hits, but hav- ing poor support as evidenced by four errors afield, thus resulting in three un- earned runs. The Springfield Gymnasts won a 4-1 game over Rhody after the Maine setback which saw Dick Nordberg, Tony Horton and Stenhouse as the com- bined mound staff. Nordberg hurled the first four frames, allowing four safe- ties, while striking out one and passing four. Horton came on in the fifth and blanked Springfield for three frames with only two singles. Stenhouse mopped up by fanning two of the five batters he faced in the eighth. Ken Dellner’s line double, which scored John Pagano in the ninth, was the only Ram threat. In a hectic encounter which saw five pitchers, twenty-five hits, five errors, and nineten runs, Maine once again defeated Rhody; this time by the score of 10-9. The game featured just about every type of in- cident which could be c6nnected with base- ball what with rhubarbs, errors, spectac- ular defensive plays and timely hitting. The Rams ' defensive highlight came when left- fielder Gene Edwards made a circus catch of a towering fiy ball in the eighth, and offensively, Jack Wojcik turned in a fine afternoon with two singles and three runs batted across. Stahl started, followed by Nordberg and Horton, with Tony the even- tual loser. New Hampshire’s Wildcats set down the Blue and White in their eighth contest, 5-0 at New Hampshire. Stenhouse went seven frames with Nordberg finishing. The Rams could get but five singles all afternoon while Dave gave up the identical number to the Wildcats. Brown next took Rhody by 1-0 in a ten inning affair at Meade Field. Stenhouse saw complete action and lost a heartbreaker after allowing seven hits in ten frames. He walked only two, while whiffing ten. The Rams then traded games and victories with Providence College in successive encounters. The Friars took the first game, 7-0 as Tony Horton started followed by Carl Stahl who allowed one run on one hit over the final two innings. The next date of play saw the Rams finally break out of their slump and win a ball game. Stenhouse spun a superb two-hit shutout, walking three, striking out thirteen and facing thirty men in nine innings. The big blow for the Rams was Ken Dellner ' s screaming triple with the sacks jammed in the seventh which actually accounted for four runs and the ball game, as Ken later scored. This game marked the first scoring by Rhode Island in 28 consecu- tive innings. The next two encounters were of the " squeaker” type where Rhody lost both by a 1-0 count. Connecticut and Massachusetts were the culprits. Stenhouse absorbed both losses, which were rather hard to take. The Massachusetts game was an extra-inning con- test and the first game of a twin bill. The second game was taken by Rhody as Carl Stahl threw a two-hitter at the Redmen. Stahl walked only one man in his brilliant effort. The winning run was fashioned by John Pagano ' s first-inning double, one of Rhody ’s three hits. After an 11-3 win over Quonset Naval Base in a practice affair, the Rams went on to a tedious seventeen-frame duel with Springfield’s Gymnasts. The game lasted four hours, fifty-five minutes and saw only three hurlers. Stenhouse and Sanford started with Sanford going the route although allowing 11 hits, and Dave going the first fifteen. Stenhouse gave but four hits while fanning 18 in the fifteen frames, but passed four- teen Gymnasts. Carl Stahl absorbed the loss as he took over for Stenhouse in the final two frames, giving three runs and four hits. Rhody ’s final encounter found Carl Stahl losing to Connecticut 2-1. Carl allowed but five hits, but two teammate errors opened the floodgates. The team had a poor hitting season, as a whole, but showed flashes of brilliance at moments. Pagano was the only senior. The second-short combination of- DeMasi and Cahill was excellent. Edwards, Pagano and Dellner patrolled the picket line while Len- drum and Barchi split the chores at third as did Abbruzzi and Hopper at first. Jack Wojcik turned in an all around job behind the mask. 177 Track Led by John Helmus, who took first in the shotput and tied for first in the high jump, Phi Mu unseated Lambda Chi as track champions. Phi Mu ran up a total of 32 4 points and Beta Psi was their nearest rival with 24 ] a , T.E.P. was third and S.A.E. fourth. Other winners were Bernie Pina who took first in the 100 and broad jump, and Doc Kennedy who took first in the 880 yd. run. PHI MU DELTA TRACK Row 1 : J. Evans, G. Morrison, J. Hereld. Row 2: E.

Football After one of the closest and, on paper, confusing finishes in the fall battle for Intra- mural Football Champion, Theta Chi finally came out on top. This team, which could be termed as " great in the clutch, " emerged from a five-way tie in League 2 to gain a play- off berth for the championship. In the playoffs. Theta Chi was matched with Phi Gam and SAE opposed Beta Psi. The finals found Red and White prevailing, 9-6, over the " Basin Street " boys. Basketball For the first time in many years a dorm team won the basketball championship when the Bressler " A” team un- seated Phi Mu as champions. Bressler took the title by beat- ing Lambda Chi in a best-of-three playoff series, after both teams had finished first in their respective leagues. Ken Isher- wood, Jim McPhee, and Don Palagi were the high scorers on the team; and the rebounding of Don Haworth helped them along. Other members of the team were John Long, Gordon Annon, and Don Salisbury. 178 BRESSLER " A " BASKETBALL K. Isherwood, J. Lons- Missing from photo: G. Annon, D. Haworth, D. Palagi, J. Macphee, D.

Second place went to Bressler " A " with 90 points and Lambda Chi was third with 89 points. John Hel- mus led Phi Mu with 22 points, to tie for first with Jim Mc- Phee of Bressler, Dick Sisco of S.A.E., and Harry Mathews of T.K.E.

Women’s Athletic Association The Women’s Athletic Association is an organization in- tended on fostering interest in competition through Field Hockey, Basketball, and a host of other sports. The promotion of good sportsmanship and teamwork is its primary interest. With the beginning of the new school year we returned with Pauline Hogan as President, Natalie Peterson as Vice- President, and Marsha Satnick as Secretary-Treasurer. These girls were assisted by a council of representatives from all the housing units, the head managers of the various sports, and our new addition, a Freshman representative. This council is the governing body of the WAA — setting rules and directing the whole group. At the end of March the WAA will send its officers plus another delegate to the National Conference of the Athletic Federation of College Women to be held at Smith College. Finally in the Spring at our annual banquet will come the rewards for work well done — shields, keys, and jackets will be awarded as a token of appreciation for their participation. Row 1: M.

Field Hockey September 21, 1954 marked the opening of our inter- house elimination field hockey tournament. The clear Fall weather, with help of daylight saving time lent itself grac- iously to our benefit. The house season drew to a close on October 21, 1954 with the final game held between Gamma Nu and Sigma Kappa. It was a very close game, with both houses exercising their greatest ability. The hockey plaque was held over for another year by Gamma Nu who won it for the first time in 1953. The Field Hockey Honor Team began its practices early in the season with fourteen active participants. During the season we played such colleges as the University of Massa- chusetts, Bridgewater, Colby Junior, Radcliff, Endicott Jun- ior, and Bouve Boston College. We were invited to partic- ipate in the New England Intercollegiate Field Day at Wellesley College. At the Field Day, Natalie Peterson was chosen as goalie on the All College Team to play against the Irish Touring Team. Nat went on to further her hockey career by playing for the North Hampton Club team in Massachusetts and from there being chosen for the North- eastern team to play aga inst the West in Michigan.

Basketball Close on the heels of the hockey season comes that old standby, Basketball. Excitement and tension are high as the female " dead-eyes” line up for the keen house com- petitions. It was a hard-pressed Eleanor Roosevelt team that finally succeeded in downing the enthusiastic Commuters for the coveted house trophy. Intramurals are immediately succeeded by club activities. Despite a heavy schedule, the club managed to compile an impressive record. Unforgettable were the Massachusetts playday and that exciting UConn game, not to mention our own playday at Keaney. Happily our " covet aces” fold up their " new” pinneys and say good-bye to another season .gone past. Volleyball Spike It! Side Out! These are all part of the game of Volleyball. A slower game than basketball to be sure, but a game in which enthusiasm and skill run high. Every member of the team is important, from the shortest to the tallest. The excite- ment builds high and every effort is aimed at keeping that ball in the air, although sometimes it appears as if it is going to hit the ceiling or bounce off the wall, which it oftentimes does. Very few intercollegiate games re played, but fun is had by all who show up at the practices. 186 Row 1 : B. Schmidt, C. Lowensohn, J. Anderson, J. O ' Rourke, N. Peterson. Row 2: M. Satnick, L.

Lacrosse As Spring comes to URI, so comes Lacrosse. Although Lacrosse is the oldest North American game, it is still in its primary stages here at URL Its aerial nature and team positioning make it a sport requiring good co- ordination and well developed skill. It is a source of dis- couragement to the beginner, but as time goes on dis- couragement undergoes a transition to satisfaction and enthusiasm. Each year the URI Women’s Lacrosse Club, under the capable guidance of its faculty advisor, Miss P. J. Harris, progresses to keep pace with clubs from neighboring col- leges. Instructional playdays and field trips to exhibition games as well as regular practice sessions are integral parts of club activities. It is certain that if present en- thusiasm survives, the attributes of Lacrosse will soon be realized along with those of other major women’s sports on campus. 187 Row 1: P. Petrone, J. Jelke, Capt.; Sgt. F. Pellerin, N. Peter- Row 2: M. McGrath, M. Madsen, S. Smith, A. Shepley, A. son, Mgr.; M. A. Kirkland. Wenderoth, E. Conn, E. Losiewicz. Women’s Rifle Team If you should see some of the gals headin’ ’cross the campus for Rodman Hall in the early evening hours, dressed in faded denims, saddle shoes, and the ole man’s best white shirt, don’t be too alarmed, it’s just members of the URI Girls’ Rifle Team en route to the range to participate in a little recreation of the type that made Annie Oakley the " Queen of the West.” The team boasts of such modern day " Annie Oakley’s” as Natalie Peterson, Joanne Jelke, Trudy Little, Pat Petrone, Mary McGrath, and Edith Conn. These gals rep- resent one of the top Girls’ Teams in New Eng- land, so beware boys; they seldom miss. Row 1 : E. Berg, B. Sands, B. Broomfield, Miss Starr, Advisor; A. Gursky. Row 2: M. Mainland, L. L ' Heureux, J. Averbach, S. Heller, F. Bernstein, E. Anderson, S. Silverman, M. Johnson. Row 3: M. Johnson, R. Rainon, G. Whitman, R. Allegretto, J. Nichols. Modern Dance Let’s dance — for health, re- laxation, and entertainment. Modern dance is a form of art through which a person ex- presses a deep emotion or feel- ing by means of bodily move- ment. Each movement is pecul- iar to the particular dance and mood she is interpreting. There is no set pattern of dance steps as there are in ballet; hence there is a greater range in free- dom of composition. This is il- lustrated by the wide variety of beautiful dance compositions that are seen on television. On any program where there are dancers and music, there is modern dance. 18? Row 1 : M. Passannanti, N. O ' Connor, C. Lowensohn, R. Alle- Row 2 : M. Satnick, M. Rider, J. O ' Rourke, J. Marriott, B. gretto, L. Mosher. Schmidt, N. Peterson. Tennis Spring and Fall, the E. R. tennis courts resound to cries of " match point,” and " deuce,” as the Tennis Club struggles with form and the one hundred and ten factors that are incidental to it. Although tennis is primarily a Spring activity, the club practices in the Fall and the members use the indoor backboards in Lippitt dur- ing the winter. When Spring finally rolls around, the instructor wonders to what avail the winter workouts have been as a fierce backhand smash turns into an in- nocuous lob. The twenty foot screens prove inadequate as a powerful forehand soars over them, and the swamp dwellers have added another ball to their collection. Amazement at a perfect placement, laugh- ter as the ball dribbles under the net rather than over, the healthy ping of a new stringing job, sore muscles the first three times, matches with UConn, Brad- ford Junior College, they all go to make up the genteel pastime we call Tennis. 190 Events Sigma Kappa Rhody Revue One of the most elaborate variety shows to hit Rhody ’s campus in many years was presented when, after weeks of rehears- ing, " On Stage Rhody” was produced successfully around the theme of various T.V. variety shows. Participation in the Star-studded cast was from various housing units and mem- bers of the faculty. The fast-moving, clever antics, of our renowned perform- ances delighted the packed houses and showed the public once again the hidden talents on the social side of campus life. Delta Zeta Mr. Moulton and Guy Lillis Helen Amoriggi Chi Omega Alpha Xi Delta Sigma Kappa PANHELLENIC SING The floating strains of sweet music drifted over the campus . . . the all-girl chorus’ tin- gled spines and the rest of the students sat in amazement . . . certainly these weren’t the same hollow sounds that had drifted out from sorority row for weeks previously? ... the smart guy said " four part giggles,” but every- one knew it was a night not to miss. FRATERNITY SING A party for all win or lose . . . who’s singing what part? . . . Campus clowns become croon- ing Carusos as the men display their finer talents . . . The mood is informal, but the music slips well from parched lips . . . unbelievable! not Phi Mu again, but let’s hurry up judges . . . things to do. The tension is over . . . " You’ll Never Walk Alone,” " The Drink Song” . . . sound appropriate? Phi Mu Delta A Night to Forget Cigar smoking card sharps test talents against the " house” ... the wheels are crooked and the dice loaded, but who cares . . . what! only $50,000 this time? . . . The Nevada atmosphere quickly instills the gambling spirit, but more than that . . Profs wink slyly as they slip one out of their sleeve and shou students they not only fool them at exams . . . time to count money, the dancing stops, prizes awarded and in a few hour; back for the coffee before church . . . the atmosphere ha; changed and Monte Carlo so far away. w 4 9 The Coronation March OPEN HOUSE Parents, Alumni, Friends, all welcome . . . Our University, we’re proud and we’ll show you . . . concert, exhibits, rodeo and the parade . . . girls in gowns, the procession, a queen . . . our guests browse, our University and everyone is proud and aware that the shaded elm campus and ivy entwined facilities are fulfilling expectations . . . boys to men, scholars and leaders . . . night falls, people depart and we all are so impressed . . . Our School. R. I. CARNIVAL Everyone turns athlete and there are prizes for all . . . nail driving and blue fingernails, dart throw- ing, but still the balloons stay . . . maybe the “spirit” of Homecoming was too much, but dancing, refresh- ments and reminiscing tops off a day when the ath- letes turn from helmets to top hats and bark bar- gains instead of signals. Paddy Murphy’s Wake Sigma Chi Derby FREAK DAY Ever see a Chinese Eskimo? . . . Dancing la- dies, fluorescent shoes, veils, mustaches . . . casual glances add embarrassment to insult as lectures become side shows and the Union strangely deserted by Freshmen girls . . . night falls, so do costumes . . . Sophistication stuns onlooker as the " freaks” turn real . . . not even such a demonstration slows down nightly calls to E. R. ... a day quickly forgotten but long standing in the tradition of campus life. SIGMA CHI DERBY The gals invade the gym this night... a display of power, tricks and skills ... the coveted derby is the incentive for the grasping, gasping, gig- gling gals. Bruises, blisters and raspberries . . . at least the men were shown how it was done or at least . . . how " ladies” do it and the girls could discount their aches and pains to a night of fun and laughter for •all.
