Text from Pages 1 - 272 of the 1957 volume:

Jforetoorb Our modern University in this great state and nation has come to embody a mode of existence with a remarkable number of different qualities. More than has been possible in the past, our centers of higher learning are able to develop their own individualities. This individuality of " Rhody” is reflected by the activities of the undergraduate as well as by the professors who pedagogically instruct and assist them. The purely academic phase of one’s education here aims at the achievment of that degree of versatility and breath of per- sonality essential to making a genuine contribution to society. If our Senior has in four years acquired some understanding of these principles, his education at Kingston may legitimately be pronounced a success. But of considerable significance also, in complementing the work of classroom and library, are those important endeavors which lie outside the curriculum and yet contribute meaning- fully to the realization of the purpose of our institution. The enduring friendships which develop and the valuable experience in the unpredictable area of human relationships gained through extracurricular activities have long been recognized as a vital part of " Old Rhody.” Presented here as a reflection of the undergraduate person- ality are the many varied features of our college community. The 1957 GRIST seeks in this way to capture a part of the true meaning of the individuality of the University of Rhode Island.

Gone are the teams of old, coached by the greatest of them all, but the memories linger on. A great gymnasium named in his honor stands as an ever-lasting tribute to a man who always will remain in the minds and hearts of every person he has come to know. We dedicate the 1957 GRIST in his honor; to a man who was a coach, teacher, scholar, scientist, father and friend to thousands; to a man who led his players into more athletic contests in every major sport than any one-man coaching staff in history; to a man called many affectionate names such as " Menty,” " Old Man,” " Mr. Chips,” " Mr. Basketball,” " F.W.” or just simply and reverently, " Coach;” to a man who can recall colorful and romantic escapades down the paths of memory; to a man that changed sports’ ways and made All-Americans out of average athletes; to Coach Frank William Keaney we dedicate this yearbook — to a truly great person — a " Builder of Men.” 6 DENNIS J. ROBERTS Governor To the members of the Class of 1957: A t the opening convocation last fall, I ventured the forecast that the year ahead — your senior year — would be " a year to remember. " As I write this in the middle of November, only two months later, events have already indicated that, indeed, the year 1956- 57 will be a year to remember, for noteworthy things have been happening here on the campus and throughout the world. Having seen senior classes come and go, I know how quickly this year will pass for you. Also, as commencement time approaches, you will have a sense of regret that your rich experiences must come to a close. Undergraduate years are now receding in the background, and more and more as these months have passed, you have been concerned with the pro- fessional and specialized phases of your study and with your post-graduation plans. You are about to make the transition from undergraduate to alumnus. You will take with you many fond and lasting mem- ories of your past four years. Sometimes the college years have been defined as the richest years of one ' s life. True, college is and should be an enriching experience, but if it has accom- plished its purpose, you will not be able to say, at some future time, that those were your richest years. Rather they have been the preparation for a greater fulfillment which lies ahead. If while at college you have achieved the dual objective of learn- ing how to live and how to make a living, then the college is but the foundation upon which you will build the structure of a still happier, more rewarding time to follow in the achievement of life ' s great objectives. Because of the role college has played in your growth, it should become a permanent part of your life. Your alma mater has become an inseparable part of your personality. You may leave the campus physically, but will always carry it with you spiritually. Yes, 1956-57 will be a year you will long remember. And the 1957 issue of THE GRIST will help you to remember it. Our best wishes will always attend you. Sincerely, 8 CARL R. WOODWARD President DR. CARL R. WOODWARD President DR. RICHARD A. SABATINO Class SbbisorS jWeSSage To the Class of 1937: Greetings! Congratulations! Well Done! What good luck, too, to be graduating at the peak of the boom! No class has ever had better opportunities. Lest you become intoxicated by the prospects of material success, however, let me remind you of a few sobering facts. We have a literary rate of above 90 per cent of the population. We have radio, television, movies, and a newspaper a day for practically everyone. But instead of giving us the best of past and present literature, music and thought, these media fill the minds of men with the cheapest trash, lacking any sense of reality or good taste. We have reduced the average working hours to about one-half what they were one hundred years ago. We have more free time than our forefathers ever hoped to have. But what has happened? We don’t know how to use it. We try to " kill” the time we have saved. Instead of thirsting for knowledge and seeking the truth, we strain for riches and release from boredom. Beware! Good Luck! Sincerely, d ' DR. RICHARD A. SABATINO Class Advisor 15oarb ©f Trustees Members of the Board of Trustees of State Colleges meet on alternate months at Kingston. They are (l.-r.) Walter F.

We added a new word to our vocabulary-cut. Senator Pastore came to the campus and we marched down to Keaney. We heard him say something about “silence not breeding security.” It was food for thought. By this time we had learned the Alma Mater . . . the Vigilantes were hot on our necks. We started to grope our way out of the shell. 28 ®. m. 3. Class of 1957 JOHN H.

We were still groping our way around cam- pus but found time to listen to Milton Eisenhower, Paul Hoffman and Admiral Strauss who made us realize there was an outside world. MERC Week was initiated and drew many “At Last” from the men . . . but it only lasted a week. The pledges at Alpha Tau Gamma now found that they belonged to a national, Sigma Nu. The boys celebrated. “The Skin of Our Teeth” and “Down in the Valley” appeared at Quinn. The girls practiced for the Sorority Sing . . . tough to get a date . . . but the Sing was worth it. 42 ®. ft. 3f. Class of 1957 PAUL H. DANIS 21 A Church St., Peace Dale, R. I. Elec.

ALPHA XI DELTA Suntanned faces and tales of summer vacation marked the arrival of the Alpha Xi’s in September. Before we realized it rushing had come and gone, and we welcomed our wonderful new pledges. Homecoming was the next event on our calendar, then Thanksgiving, and Christmas and the nights we went out caroling ... the midnight oil we burnt trying to cram for finals. We began our last semester on campus with our pledge formal . . . a dance we will never forget. At last the snow melted and spring brought thoughts of " beach days” and Scarborough . . the sen- iors with their schedules with plenty of time for sun, sand, and surf. Finals, Senior Week, and Gradua- tion Day, — and we leave our Ranch House with memories we will always cherish — of Alpha Xi Delta. 114 C — Cheers for the nineteen pledges on October 20th.

SIGMA KAPPA Sigma Kappa — the house of fond memories. Sigma’s together — studying, football games, parties, hide and seek. Our wonderful pledges — so willing to give and share. We have accomplished many things in the past year . . . Our three class secretaries, our queen of the Freshman dance and Slide Rule Strut, our Sachem, our " stars” in the theater and cheering squad. Such close friendships shared in our house that seems a home to all. The seniors are leaving — but their hearts are still close to Sigma in every way. 118 Another year has come to a close. For seven of us it means the end of four years spent in East. Four years in which we had the oppor- tunity to make many new acquaint- ances in the friendly atmosphere of our small dormitory. For many more of us it is only the beginning of our college careers. We learned that being away from home cannot be too trying if we are among friends. Crowded rooms — Freshmen party — sorority rushing — friend- ly surroundings — parties — our Aggie Bawl Queen — Freak Day — srudying — football games — rallies — Homecoming — beach days — final exams — our graduat- ing seniors — these and many more events will make the past year a memorable one, and many will say, " quite a year.

ALPHA EPSILON PI A very successful year for the " cup-cake” House has become a memorable part of our past. RHO ' s ranks were swelled by 21 pledges — the social calendar was filled with many parties and socials, including the fall and spring caba- rets, Jam session, and the " Great Arab Water Fight. " Who can for- get the 7:30 deadline for Bose’s breakfasts, " Ma” Fernald ' s impec- cable teas, " Z” Day, " Schnooky " with the free gas, and the whole house behind " Moe” in the mayor- ality campaign??? Good Luck to " Gooch,” Les, Bob, Herb, Max, Lou, Louis, Dick, Rich- ard, Jerry, Al, Manny, Milt and " McCrae.” Remember Rho and U.R.I. 124 Beta Psi Alpha was established in 1932, and eight years later, through the efforts of the Brother- hood, a fine chapter house was built. The house accommodates forty- two students very comfortably, and also provides 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 cam- pus, its members have certainly won a great deal of recognition by their scholastic, athletic, and social achievements.

The spontaneous Friday night parties, socials, vie dances, suave formals from which we are still re- covering and of course the one o’clock gab sessions. The times we have sung to Fiji Sweethearts must have broken a record. Last minute preparations for Fiji Islander and homecoming produced little work but a keg of fun. The impressive athletic and scho- lastic achievements cannot be over- looked. The men on these athletic teams did a fine job and placed well in all their respective leagues. Along with the team achievements, scho- lastic averages rose to new heights. The memories could fill a book. Maybe some will be forgotten but most of them will live on as inspira- tions in the hearts of all Phi Gams.

PHI SIGMA KAPPA The little white house at 22 Up- per College Road has miraculously survived another year’s onslaught of vie dances, coffee hours, pledge training (The non-humiliating kind, of course), costume dances, jam sessions, snowball fights, and just plain parties, that go to make up a successful school year. We obtained a mascot and named it Tahnuk, a name whose deriva- tion is as improbable as the cat’s ancestry . . . We are invaded by calypso music, The Dialogues of Plato, and Rock n’ Roll . . . We hold lengthy bull sessions, wherein are solved the problems of the world, the specific volume of various movie actresses, and the alcoholic content of numerous beverages . . . A large segment of the brotherhood is infected early in the year with senioritis, a disease which results in lack of sleep at the end of the semester . . . Yet, through it all, the seniors maintain their equanimity and at last pick up their sheepskins . . . Good Luck, guys. Rhode Island’s first fraternity, Rho Iota Kappa is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The growth of this fraternity can be paralleled to the growth of the University. From humble begin- nings in the old Wells house, to the occupancy of the present chapter house in 1926, P. I. K. has shown the individualism of spirit and non- conformity of action that typifies our New England background. When finally we, as seniors, leave this institution, the traditions fos- tered by our association with P. I. K., will travel with us throughout all our endeavors.

SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON Another year comes and all too soon goes, leaving another crop of seniors to go out into the cold, cruel world, fortified by memories of SAE. " Our” boys on the football team, overturned wastebaskets . . . " The Phantom strikes again. " Fred’s union hours, well dressed for the Metacomet, half dressed for the shuffle, and the many good times, both organized and unorganized . . . Who stole the demerit sheet any- way? We’ve run the course from " scut” slinking in and out through the side door, to a tyrannical brother holding a " Line up " in the social room after dinner, then to a senior, a bit weary at times, a bit enthusi- astic at others, a bit worried about next year but confident. Those of us who have gotten this far can face the world. We leave behind the house and all the physical property, but we take with us many happy memories and leave confident that the new faces we left behind us will con- tinue to foster the spirit of brother- hood we enjoyed at SAE. 132 This has been a BIG year for Sigma Chi. The house doubled as Executive Mansion for the Junior and Senior classes. A couple of bright, shiny trophies, the IA..C. Award and the Improvement Cup came to rest on our mantle. Physi- cally we improved ourselves with paint and polish. In the " other” de- partment the M.S.P. award found many takers at the Brown weekend, the B.C. and at Huskie Homecom- ing. Again the Derby was a success and who can forget the Sweetheart Ball? (Then there was Jordan, gal- ley chief-coach Cook who produced a win . . . Lakey eater of all shrimp, S. A. Carvahlo and the inimitable Bingo.) Frank’s added a Sigma Chi An- nex — the pledges stormed many sororities — pins disappeared left and right. Most of all, this has been a year of growth for Sigma Chi and we are proud.

SIGMA NU Sigma Nu is rapidly becoming one of the leading fraternities on the U. R. I. campus . . . progressive in development and constructive in purpose. This year has been another typical year for us here at " the barn.” A typical year, of course, be- ing one in which success of the extra-curricular activities has far surpassed our fondest hopes, and the social roster indicates that there is a great deal more to come. Well planned and varied social programs provided many pleasant diversions for the fraternity. As much as we like to participate in extra-curricular activities, we realize the prime purpose of our college career is scholastic achieve- ment, as testified to by the late- burning lights on the study deck. One of the highlights of the first semester was the annual Pledge Formal. The attendance was indica- tive of the Sigma Nu spirit! The White Rose Formal and the other remaining activities of the year promise to be even more successful than our opening endeavors. 134 Another year — a happy year — when the tree fell over at the Christ- mas Party — watching the men walk up the snowy road on pledging day — taking another step towards the new house — easy-going get- togethers around the fireplace — hearing church bells ring — sere- nading our new sweethearts — crowning the new Queen — initiat- ing the pledges. Fun — pledges racing for the phone — By-Law of the Week Club — Pledge Formal — intramurals — stuffing napkins for the homecom- ing float — writing home for money — excursions to Flatrock — pulling cars out of the snow and mud — looking for missing type- writer ribbons and ROTC brass — bull sessions in the opium den — early morning chess games — the Orchid Ball — meeting the new co-eds. Here and there, work — house duties — running to Lippitt Hall — meetings — all night cramming sessions — reports — term papers. Then the certificate and ribbon — the smiles and handshakes — leaving to the others — fraternity life.

So good-bye class of " 57 " we’ll never forget you and what you have done 136 Our mighty fraternity is in her one hundredth and first year of brotherhood. The first one hundred years marked Theta Chi as a fra- ternity of distinction, integrity, and fulfillment. Here is the second Cen- tennial! Avast, pledges, get those decks cleaned! Scrub those walls! Well here we go again with an- other period of pledge training. As in the past, our pledges need a lot of shaping up, but it has been ru- mored that they will make it. Magoo appears to have reached her goal as King of Beasts on cam- pus. The rumors to the effect of " giving her the hook” still prevail. Our social calendar has got off to a very nice start with such events as Paddy Myrphy ' s Wake, The Beaux Arts Ball, The Pledge Formal. With other sparkling events, the year promises to be socially active. To our seniors may we extend to you our heartiest and most sincere wishes for all that the future holds in store for you.

BUTTERFIELD HALL A year of progress and achievements by the Butterfield Dormi- tory Association may now be seen with a backward glance. Hav- ing one of the most active memberships in its history, the asso- ciation was very successful socially — a " Homecoming Day” reception for Alumni and friends, a Christmas dance, and a few social hours. Scholarship awards to two freshmen members of the associa- tion for having the highest scholastic average in our group, and participation in the " Interfraternity Sing,” were held this year for the first time. A " Tug of War” between Bressler Hall and this dorm also made its debut, with the intent of having initiated an annual tradition. After such an eventful year, spiced with informal happenings which we all experience at one time or other, we all have Butter- field Hall in our thoughts, but especially in our hearts.

Phi Kappa Phi The organization was established to provide an honor society dedicated to the unity and de- mocracy of education and open to all students. It is a national scholastic society which was established on this campus in 1913. Each year students of outstanding scholarship are elected for membership in the society. During the eighth semester students are selected on the basis of their previous seven semesters. A few students are selected during the seventh semester. 142 Sigma Xi The National Society of Sigma Xi was founded at Cornell University in 1886 for the purpose of encouraging research in various sciences. The Sigma Xi Club was organized in the Spring of 1947 at the University of Rhode Island by members of the faculty who had been initiated into the society at other institutions. A petition for the estab- lishment of a chapter of Sigma Xi at Rhode Island State College was accepted by the National Executive Council in the Spring of 1949. The installation took place in the Spring of 1951. Sigma Xi is the foremost science society on the campus. 1 I ljj( j! j ! 1 ' 111 ; j If II III Ijj |:j 1 1 : |i|j 1 11. 1 mil u n|l ' Jl; Ml L 7 % LkifL iiP f 1 ' ■ j Y 1 ‘ K fl W S mFI ; j k J j 1, . l f I 1 T (1 jfcj K i sgi Row One; Lepper, R.; Christopher, E.

This fraternity is, in engi- neering, equivalent to what Phi Beta Kappa is in the Humanities. The purpose is to recognize in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their alma mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as undergraduates in Engineering, and to fos- ter a spirit of liberal culture in the engi- neering colleges of America. An engineering faculty rating system is one of many projects of Tau Beta Pi. 144 Alpha Zeta, the national honorary agri- culture fraternity, maintains its purpose by fostering and developing high standards of scholarship, character and leadership and a spirit of fellowship in the agriculture profession. Each year the Rhode Island Chapter of Alpha Zeta awards a loving cup to the freshman in agriculture with the highest scholarship honors. In addition to the customary activities, an annual steak roast staged in the Fall for member-alumni, and an initiation cere- mony and banquet in the Spring constitute this Chapter’s objective — dedication of agriculture through achievement.

Each year the Women’s Student Government Association instills a spirit of cooperation and friendship among the women students here at the university. Being composed of several elected officers and highest women officers of the various organizations on campus, the Women’s Student Government Association has contact with nearly every organization. Among the projects of the Women’s Student Government Association this year, were the annual Philanthropic Project, two coffee hours, MERC week, a week in Spring when the women students take the men out, and other projects which have especially benefited women on our campus.

The Aggie Club is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, organized club on the URI campus. Its main function is t ideyelop leaHgrship, responsibility and friendship among students and to promote projects of ' value to the University and College of Agriculture. The club’s largest undertaking is the annual and traditional " Aggie Bawl,” the university! first major dance of each year. Among other activities are the annual Christmas party at East Farm and the spring pic- nic for the College of Agriculture. Each year the dub publishes a magazine, " The Rhody Ag Review, " jvhich re views the year’s activities. The outstanding Junior Aggie of the year j| recognized and Aggie Keys are awarded to Senior Aggies who have been outstanding in the lu acnvifies during their years at the University. 157 AGGIE SHOWMANSHIP CLUB The Showmanship Gub is one of the more recently organized clubs on campus. Within a period of four years its popularity has been rapidly increasing. This organization is made up of students who are interested in preparing, showing, and judging plants and animals. The club sponsors a dairy judging team and a poul- try judging team. It is noteworthy to mention that both teams have done exceptionally well in New England competition.

AGGIE JUDGING TEAMS The Judging Team is officially known as the University of Rhode Island Dairy Cattle Judging Team of 1957. They finished fourth in the Eastern States Exposition this year. Placing first in New England, they retired one cup, having won it three consecutive years. Out in Waterloo, Iowa, at the National Dairy Congress, the team placed twenty- first out of over fifty entries. It was the second time a Rhode Island team has entered this contest, and the men who went as representatives leave no doubt in our minds that the trip was both educational and enjoyable.

Strengthened by the ever-increasing enrollment of music majors and by the addition of majorettes, the marching " blue and white” assumed a greater role in campus activities. Under the leadership of Professor Frank Van ' Buren, the band performed at all home football games and added needed color to our rallies. The annual Christmas and Spring concerts cannot be forgotten and each member of the band can be justly proud of the organization. Sullivan, J.; Feller, C.; Edwards, G.; Davis, C.; Front; O’Brien, J. Majorettes and Chorus The University Chorus, with a surprising number of male voices, prac- ticed each Tuesday during the year. The Chorus is directed by Mr. Ward Abusamra and includes in its repertoire the works ' of such composers as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, and Wagner, along with more modern and contemporary composers. The Christmas Concert, in conjunction with the other music organ- izations, was extremely successful, and Mr. Abusamra has seen fit to organize a Men’s Glee Club as well.

Membership in the Radio Club is open to anyone interested in amateur radio communication. 166 The Socius Club is an organization of students, interested in Sociology, who desire to better acquaint the campus and themselves with the problems of man- kind and their solutions. Our informal meetings on alternate Thursday evenings include discussions of pertinent social conditions, and ad- dresses by a selected group of speakers.

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 view- point. This organization, open to any interested, regularly enrolled student of the University, has grown in size and popularity into one of the largest student organizations on campus. Music, news, sports and special programs constitute WRIU airtime. WRIU has grown from a small group of radio enthusiasts in South Hall to a member in the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System and is now housed in the Rhode Island Memorial Union. During the past year, WRIU has been installing new technical and programming equipment and is now known as the " Voice of U.R.I.” 170 MEN’S COMMUTERS ORGANIZATION Row One; Bennett, D.; Ellen, S., Sec.; Dubuque, Pres.; Dansereau, J.; Dowiot, F.

This group of fellows meet Tuesday evenings at 10:00 p.m. in the Choral Room for an hour or two of relaxation through singing. The reason for the late rehearsal hour is that it is expected and desired that the fellows will study for the greater part of the evening and then come together for a song session. Their first guest appearance was for the Christmas Convocation when they sang on the pro- gram featuring the University Band. It is the wish of the conductor, Mr. Ward Abusmara, that the men will avail themselves to participate in this worth-while activity. A spring program was also in the offering. " THE SEPTONES This year it was decided to organize a small men ' s singing ensemble, with the hope that this will be a training for the men’s glee club. After many weeks of rehearsal, the group is now arranging dates to sing for organizations on and off campus.

University Theater " BIRD IN HAND " This year marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of Phi Delta, formerly one of the strongest of several groups formed by students to provide an outlet for dramatic talents, and always one of the most popular. Phi Delta, the originator of the Rhody Review, is now an honorary theater fraternity within the University Theater. Membership in this honor society is based upon a point system in rela- tion to the amount of work done in the organization. Honors are due those past members of Phi Delta who persevered an interest in theater on our campus under the worst possible conditions, and thus provided the small group of enthusiasts from which the University Theater has evolved. Our Spring production of ' Tiger At The Gates, " will climax a highly suc- cessful season that included " The Corn Is Green,” " The Rainmaker,” and a state- wide High School Drama Workshop. Later in the Spring the University Theater will join efforts with the University Chorus to produce Gilbert and Sullivan’s " Trial By Jury.” Under the able direction of Robert E. Will the University Theater has continued to grow and is looking forward to many more entertaining seasons.

Hillel Foundation The Hillel Foundation here at the University of Rhode Island was organized to provide students of the Jewish faith with an opportunity to engage in religious, cultural and social activities. The main activities are threefold: the religious program with its Friday evening services enables the student to understand his religion through a spiritual atmosphere — Sunday brunches and card parties pro- vide the student with an opportunity to meet others of his own faith socially — the study groups held with Rabbi Rosen presents the student with a cultural insight into his religion. However, through events like the Model Seder, commemorating the Jewish Holiday of Passover, the Hillel foundation hopes to better acquaint all members of the university campus with the Jewish faith in an effort to bring about a better understanding among religious faiths. 177 Row 1; Anderson, E.; Arwill, P.; Brown, M.; Skoglund, J.; Rev.

Office Scene GRIST EDITORIAL A college lives only in its students, and this year ' s Grist staff has tried to present to you, the student, a book that the University will con- tinue to live in, and be remembered by. One that will be a favored and cherished reflexion of happy moments, minutes, hours, days and years spent at Kingston in the pursuit of knowledge. We have earnestly tried to fulfill the purpose of the Grist, as de- scribed by Dr. Woodward in his address to the graduating seniors where he said, " Here, permanently recorded, are the very incidents of college life, which pieced together, from the background scene before which you have played your role in the campus drama of the coming year. " I and the rest of the Staff hope that as he said, " For years to come your copy will serve as a reminder of the people and the events which have con- tributed to your personal development and helped to prepare you to be of service to the world.” In the words of our president, " You could not take away with you a more appropriate momento of your college days, " and we have tried to make it as worthy a momento as we know how. Since the day last Spring when the staff met in Adams Lounge to informally acquaint ourselves and formulate plans for the past year ' s work, much sweat and blood, lost sleep, and headaches have gone down the drain. But determination and pride have come up with a product I hope will appeal to each and every student on campus. Thus after floundering through many new ideas and confronting numerous obstacles, we finally present to you the completed product of our labors. John Renfrew, Photography Editor; John Long, Editor-in-Chief Charles Hirsch, Managing Editor §rist Charles Hirsch, Thomas Wright, Managing Editors At this time I would like to congratulate all the editors and their staffs for their earnest efforts, determination, cooperation, and fine jobs done in collecting and preparing the immense amount of photos, copy, and art work necessary to form this book. Also many thanks to our two business managers, two advisors and those who unhesitatingly offered their services in the tremendous and noteworthy job of typing copy. To all and everyone who contributed, even in some small way, to the com- pletion of the 1957 Grist, many thanks. A special page of acknowledge- ments, for all those outside the student body, who generously contributed, may be found later in the book. We received much enjoyment from putting this book together and I sincerely hope that you will get as much enjoyment from reading this edition. May this Grist for 1957 depict those things which you, looking back on your college career in years to come, would want to remember of your under-graduate days at the University of Rhode Island. 182 Charles Hirsch, Managing Editor Bill Gould, An Editor Dick Yeaw, Circulation Ed Samelin, Business Manager Mercedes Goashgarian, Features Editor Gordon Hall, Rosanne Cohen, Sports Editors 1957 nsit Charles Hirsch, Managing Editor Barbara Barsamian, Midge Grills Activities Editors Edward O’Brien, Advertising Editor Audrey Bennett, Fred Katzenstein, Janice Marcille Residence Editors 183 Fr „„.

The undergraduate chapters are dedicated to " bridging the gap” between advertising theory and experience. Our chapter attempts to foster interest in the advertising profession, to pro- vide an atmosphere in which the advertising neophyte can be introduced to the practical problems in a dynamic field, and to instill in its members the high ethical standards that are needed in creative advertising. The principal project of the fraternity is the composition of an advertising blotter. They also act in an agency capacity in handling the advertising of the Puritan, the campus literary magazine. 186 The Economics Club is an organization pri- marily interested in the informal discussion of contemporary problems. Meetings are high- lighted by many prominent speakers from the various fields. The purpose of this organization is the devel- opment of an awareness in the minds of its members of the important problems, both economic and political, that are constantly aris- ing, on the national and international scene.

It is an annual dance held at Keaney Gymnasium. The gym is beauti- fully decorated and the false crepe paper ceiling lends a beautiful effect to the dance. Every year the members of ROTC choose a co-ed colonel to reign over the dance. This year’s choice was Elaine Hilkene. THE JUNIOR PROM The most successful Junior Prom ever held by a junior class was staged at the Biltmore Hotel in early May. We elected the beautiful and radiant Judy Henry as our queen as we danced to the incomparable music of Les Elgart ' s orchestra. Many parties added to the enjoyment of this memorable dance. The beautiful gowns and the summer tuxedos added to the over-all effect of a wonderful evening. OPEN HOUSE On Open House Day the University of Rhode Island welcomes alumni, parents and friends to the campus. Open house is held in the middle of May and includes many varied activities. In the afternoon there is a procession on the quadrangle. The girls are attired in pastel gowns and form an honor guard for Miss U.R.I. Miss U.R.I. is chosen by an all campus vote from all the girls in the senior class. The ROTC troops pass in review in honor of the queen. Dotty Manganelli was chosen as Miss U.R.I. last year and she was surrounded by a court of ten senior girls. THE AGGIE BAWL The Aggie Bawl is the first formal dance of the year and is held at Keaney Gym. The decorations are those of a fall motif. This is an annual dance and is well-attended by the students. The highlight of the evening was the crowning of Pat Martineau as this year’s Aggie Bawl Queen. 209 Man, Those Helmet Liners Get Hot Visit From Dr. Woodward Chow in the Field with the Ants R.O.T.C.

" Come to Papa, Baby " On September 1st, Coach Herb Maack and the 1956 edition of U.R.I. football team began its daily double practice sessions. The Rams were a veteran team and were favored to capture the Yankee Conference championship again. Although the team only lost seven players from last year ' s eleven through graduation, there were several others that dropped out of school or chose not to play this year. When Billy Montanaro decided not to play this season. Coach Maack had to replace an entire backfield excepting the quarterback position. Five of the six tackles were gone from last year ' s roster. The most vital factor concerning the graduating seniors, was that of the four starters gone, three of them were linebackers. Coach Maack stated that this would be a rebuilding season and was more or less scoffed at. As week after week passed, his earlier predictions and fears came true. Injuries and unusual circumstances took their toll of players too. After the first game it was very seldom the entire squad was physically fit to dress for a game. One of the really disasterous factors was the loss of Don Massie due to a serious knee injury. Don had been counted on to vary the Rhody attack with his passing. Because of this, the coach had de- vised numerous new passing plays to offset the loss of our great backs from the previous season. Massie was also a first rate defensive back and was a veteran. While the season as a whole was disappointing, there were some bright spots. The play of the senior linemen throughout the season is to be applauded along with the fine running of John Leach, Jim Adams, Jim Warren, Bob Gallucci and Bob Sammartino. Pete Dalpe, Jocko O’Leary, Bob Novelli and Dick Gourley all played outstanding ball for Coach Maack. Jim Gerlach, Everett McDaniels, Bob Mairs, Bob Peltier and Joe Almonte also are to be congratulated on their fine play. Coach Maack, John Chirona, Dick Whatley and Connie Pensce- valle also did a fine job with the material that was available. With his first season as head coach under his belt, perhaps Herb Maack will surprise everyone and produce a winner next season after losing practically his entire line and his top ball carrier. We ' ll wait and see and hope for the best. NORTHEASTERN AT KINGSTON In the season ' s opener against Northeastern the Rams put on an impressive show for the large crowd at Meade Field. The veteran line and the swift Ram halfbacks threatened early in the first half to break the game wide open. The opening drive carried from deep in R.I. territory to the Northeastern five yard line where a Rhody fumble and a Northeastern recovery stalled our attack temporarily. North- eastern was forced to kick and Rhody was not to be denied as Bob Sammartino carried the ball on a four yard jaunt for Rhody’s first 1956 score. The extra point try was wide. Adams and Leach were the big ground gainers on this drive while Jim Warren had done most of the carrying on the first drive. An eleven yard pass play from Sammartino to Adams which moved the ball to our own 41 set up our second score. On the next play Jim Adams went through tackle, cut to the inside, and ran 59 yards through the open defense to score our second touchdown. Jim Ger- lach converted to make the score 13-0. Northeastern had different ideas concerning a rout and came storming back. Paced by Mike Altieri and John Giroruard they scored twice in the period but failed to convert either of their extra point tries. 218 The second half was a stalemate as each team’s line began to shake the ballcarriers loose from the ball and recover the errant pigskin. It looked as if Rhody was off to another good year. Northeastern who had tied us last year, was beaten 13-12 and the team had looked much better winning than last year’s club had in tying the Huskies. MAINE AT ORONO The powerful Maine Bears, out to avenge last year’s loss in the rain and mud, routed the butterfingered Rams by the score of 40-7. Maine scored in 11 plays and at half time led by a 19-0 score. A steady parade of backs paced by Ken Parady with his pinpoint pass- ing quickly ran up the score to 40-0. Maine’s forward wall opened gaping holes which allowed the Maine backs to ramble almost at will. Late in the second half Rhody unveiled its passing game. Don Massie came into the game and began pitching strikes. First he threw to Bob Mairs on a play that covered 71 yards. Rhody fumbled and Maine recovered only to lose the ball a few plays later. Massie then pitched again to Mairs on a 10 yard pass play for the touchdown. John Leach kicked the point to make the final score 40-7. Outstanding in a losing cause were Leach, Hal Fayerweather, Peter Dalpe and Paul Fitzgerald. NEW HAMPSHIRE AT DURHAM The sophomore laden Wildcats of New Hampshire nipped the Rams 13-7 in a real thriller at Durham. Rhody ’s leaky pass defense allowed Bob Trouville to complete a long pass to John D’Angelo who scored the first Wildcat touchdown with just nine seconds remaining in the first half. The scoring play covered 66 yards. Pete Dalpe blocked New Hampshire ' s try for the extra point. The Wildcats’ Basil Gregorious recovered Jim Adams ' fumble on the first play of the second half to start the Wildcat attack rolling again. A series of rushes and a 27 yard Trouville to Montagano pass play brought the ball to the Rhody one yard line. On their third try from the one they finally scored and Southwick kicked the extra point to make the score 13-0. The Rams finally scored after a 59 yard drive with Hal. Fayer- weather taking a pitchout and racing the last 12 yards into the end zone. Jack Leach kicked the extra point to close the gap to 13 to 7. Rhody just missed tying the game when Leach broke loose for 31 yards to put the ball on the New Hampshire 12. The Wildcats managed to hold on for the remaining minute and clinched a hard fought victory. VERMONT AT KINGSTON In their worst played game of the season, the Rams were belted by a mediocre Vermont team 39-13. The first half found the lead changing ' hands five times as the two teams played a loose defensive game. Vermont struck through the middle of the Rhody line time after time for sizable gains. All of their scores came comparatively easy compared to Rhody’s two that had to be ground out slowly, yard by yard. Jim Adams scored both the Rhode Island touchdowns on short rushes of 4 yards and 2 yards and Leach kicked the extra point. Vermont kicked off to the Rams just seconds before the first half ended. Jim Adams took the kick on the 12, went up the middle and cut to the left side at the 45 and appeared to be going for another Rhody score when he was caught from behind by Leroy Williams at the Vermont 18 yard line. There was no time left and this ended the last serious Rhode Island scoring, threat. Leach and Adams were standouts for Rhody in probably its worst game in several years. MASSACHUSETTS AT KINGSTON Our ’’cousins’’ from UMass came to town determined to gain revenge for their Homecoming Day loss last year at Amherst. They had a veteran team with a diversified attack. They had three passers and several fine runners but they had the misfortune to run into a " Too Hot To Handle” - 3 " Special Delivery” " A Rambling Ram” f whq WMT ' umbzglla DROUGHT £WD=D 5CRTHS SRUINS ASTWSr-TSOK B r?HGOE ISLAND W 27-7 IT WAS A TIGHT GAME !=CR50 , Minutes JACK -Leach OUTSTANDING- .MAN OH-TH FIELD ’ EVEN W DEFEAT " fired-up " Rhody team which was hungry for a victory. Coach Maack ' s boys really went to town and had a field day for themselves as they swamped the Redmen 34-13- It was our best effort of the season as yet. Rhody ' s granite-like forward wall managed to contain the Red- tnen ' s running game and their crashing tactics harassed the quarter- backs enough so as to make their efforts ineffective. Rhody opened their scoring spree early in the first quarter as Johnny Leach bucked over from five yards out following a 33 yard Adams to Gourley pass play. Bob Sammartino crashed over from four yards out for the second score. Bob Novelli ' s recovery of a UMass fumble on their 35 yard line set this one up. Late in the second quarter Sammy again scored, this time from two yards out. In the third period Jim Warren scored the fourth R.I. touchdown following Bob Peltier ' s recovery of a UMass fumble on the ten. Art Boulet, Bob Mairs, and Ray Charron collaborated on a pass and run play which went for a long gain. Boulet scored from the eight to wind up the scoring. Jack Leach kicked three extra points and Dave Dickey kicked the last one. The entire Rhode Island team played an outstanding game in breaking their three game losing streak. BROWN AT PROVIDENCE After their fine performance against UMass the Rams came right back with another top-notch effort. The improving Bruins met an un- dermanned but determined Ram club that outclassed them com- pletely the first half but finally yielded because of Brown ' s superior manpower. By the fourth quarter there were few of the Ram ' s starters who remained uninjured from the rough, bruising contest. The tired Rams left the field at halftime leading 7-6. Leach ran the kickoff back to our 48 yard line to get the second half underway. Our drive carried to the Brown 12 yard line before they braced and held us for four downs. This was Rhody’s last serious threat. The turning point of the game proved to be Brown ' s score in the third period when MacDonald completed a pass to fleet Jon Jensen who sprinted to the end zone to give Brown the lead. Brown added two more touch- downs in the last quarter to ice the decision. Though outmanned, they were not outfought and the Brown players and coaches had praise for several of U.R.I.S performers. Jack Leach, Bob Novelli, Jack O ' Leary, Jim Gerlach, Bob Peltier, Ev McDaniels, Dick Gourley, Paul Fitzgerald and Pete Dalpe all had a hand in this fine effort and played well enough to win most games. SPRINGFIELD AT SPRINGFIELD The battered and weary Rams were hardly a match for the power- ful Springfield team which was ranked as the top small college team in New England. It was simply a matter of too many fresh Indians against too many tired Rams. Les Plumb, Sprinefield ' s top flight quarterback, threw three touch- down passes and directed the Springfield attack to a 40-0 romp. Charlie Redman was a pleasant surprise to coach Solem as he reeled off three touchdowns while replacing the injured Charley Feid. Most of the time the Rams were bottled up inside their own 35 yard line but late in the game they made two unsuccessful thrusts which petered out. The first saw Jimmy Adams and Hal Fayerweather collaborate on a 49 yard pass play that carried from the Rhode Island 3 yard line to the Springfield 15. Jim Warren ran well in this series of plays. In the final seconds Art Boulet connected with Don Daubney on a 20 yard pass play that put the ball on the Springfield 35. Sev- eral plays failed and the game ended. CONNECTICUT AT KINGSTON T jP n Homecoming Day the Rams were host to the Huskies from UConn. This game promised to be a thriller with the conference championship at stake for the Huskies. The day was dark and cold and rain fell during the entire game. The Rams had had two weeks to recover from their bruising games with Springfield and Brown. Herb Maack had worked with the linemen himself during the last week of practice. The team was " One Point Landing” " Over Standing Up " " Happy Landing” ♦ sm UConn was big and tough with plenty of depth. Rhody started the game by holding UConn twice before the Huskies picked up a first down and while our boys had the ball they moved it deep into UConn territory. But once again our pass defense failed us and two long wobbly passes set up easy scores for UConn. A fumble recovered in the end zone by their own center, Joe Dubiel, gave them another gift score. Fumbles set up the fourth Connecticut score of the after- noon. UConn held a 26-0 halftime lead and we had practically handed them every score. The third quarter was scoreless but Rhody had a sustained drive underway that produced a score in the first minute of the fourth quarter. After the score. Coach Maack sub- stituted freely and the Huskies rolled up 25 points against the second and third teams. The final score was 51-6 but it really failed to show a correct picture of the game. All our seniors played their hearts out in a losing cause and they all received fine ovations from the crowd when they left the game. John Leach, Dick Gourley, Jack O’Leary, Paul Fitzgerald, Bob Novelli, and Pete Dalpe all will be missed next year along with Don Daubney, Buz Turano and Harry Bogosian when the football season rolls around again.

V THE 3 PD pep OD, B t-t-f ser IPPUD 1955-1956 SEASON Seriously hampered by the loss of last year ' s co-captains, Eric Anderson I and Bob Stairs, the Rams are expected to have a tough go of it this year. However, so far this year, Bill Von Weyhe has been doing a great job in rebounding and if he keeps up his early season form Rhody could finish higher than expected. Von Weyhe and Ronnie Marozzi are again top scorers, with both averaging about 20 points a game. Steve Madreperla, with some good rebounding and scoring, Jim Adams using driving lay-ups, and Pete Kohlsaat, an all-around hustler, have composed the starting team along with co-captains Von Weyhe and Marozzi. Brad Southworth played some good ball in the early part of the season. Dusty Mormando and Kenny Peckham were two hustlers who played in quite a few games. Rounding out the team were Ron Smith, Bob Timko, Red Hann and Fred Han. In the last few games, Rhody has shown superior team efforts. At this writing, the Rams have pulled to a tie for the lead in the intra-state league. They still have a game with Brown left to be played. Two im- portant games with UConn which will decide the outcome of the Yankee Conference also remain. If the Rams can keep up their pace of late and have a little luck, they can have a successful season. For a team that wasn ' t given a chance in the beginning of the season, the Rams have come through. In the season ' s opener at Keaney Gym the Rams just couldn ' t score and St. Joseph couldn’t miss. The Hawks were led by outstanding Kurt Englebert who poured 33 points through the hoop. Englebert also com- bined with teammate Ray Randziowski to lead in the rebound depart- ment with 14 each. St. Joe ' s had a definite advantage in height. Rhody had to make it on their first shot or give up the ball. U.R.I. ' s co-captain Bill Von Weyhe played a good game considering that he had not completely recovered from an attack of virus. His 11 points total was not too impressive but he did a good job defensively, pulling down 13 rebounds. The boys from Philly completely dominated play in the first half, outscoring the Rams 40-19. TTie closest the Rams came to the Hawks was four points, 15-11, but St. Joe ' s went to work and quickly ran it up to 24-12. Englebert popped in 14 straight points midway through the first half. He was set up by beautiful passes from all members of the squad. Rhody ' s star Von Weyhe, on the other hand, was cold in the scoring column and did not score until after half of the opening period had gone by. To sum it up, St. Joseph ' s was too tall and too good for U.R.I. They played as if in midseason form and they will probably be one of the leading college teams in the East this year. The U.R.I. Rams lost their second game in as many starts to Boston College at Keaney Gym. However, the Rams looked much improved over their only other appearance. It was a see-saw battle until the last five minutes when B.C. pulled ahead 78-71. Rhody closed the gap to three points, but the Eagles added a pair of baskets to insure their victory. U.R.I. showed a good team effort with co-captains Marozzi and Von Weyhe leading the way. Ronnie had high scoring honors with 29 points while Billy had 22 and 21 rebounds to lead in that department. Close behind was Steve Madreperla with 15 points. Jim Adams and Brad Southworth rounded out the starting five. Coach Jack Guy used only six men in the contest and they all played a much improved game over the opener. The Rams showed promise of polish that was to come in some of the later games. U.R.I. won its first game in three starts when the Rams journeyed to Providence to play Brown at Marvel Gym. The Rams and the Bruins exchanged leads quite often in a contest that was loosely played. Brown was playing possession basketball and Rhody had some cold streaks. These two factors account for the low score. Rhody scored 8 straight to move to a halftime lead of 27-21 and were never headed thereafter. Brown did close it to 37-39; however, U.R.I. ran through ten straight point to rebuild its lead. Coach Jack Guy played his starting five the complete game. Bill Von Weyhe led in the scoring honors with 25 points. Madreperla (9), Marozzi (8), Adams (8), and Brad Southworth (5) rounded out the Ram scoring. High scorer for Brown was Joe Tebo with 11 points, even though he left the game in the first half because of an ankle injury. At Madison Square Garden, Rhody met St. John ' s and barely man- aged to escape with their lives. St. John’s set four Garden records as they slaughtered the hapless Rams 115-70. Von Weyhe scored 26 points and played a brilliant game. He received a standing ovation from the partisan New York crowd when he left the game. Ron Marozzi scored 30 points to lead both teams in scoring. U.R.I. lost its fifth game in six starts to Providence College Friars 70-56 at Keaney Gym. P.C. was superior in every department. Bill Von Weyhe was limited to 18 points and 12 of these were from the foul line. However, Bill missed 5 fouls to drop him from third position, which he held in the national racings. Ron Marozzi, co-captain with Bill and usually a big scorer, was limited to one field goal late in the game and two foul shots for a total of only four points. Meanwhile, the Friars were showing their tremendous offense. They set up a good percentage of their baskets with " picks " . Mike Pascale had 14 points and almost all of them were scored from the same spot on the floor. Big John Ritch tossed in fifteen points for the winners. He seems to have improved vastly over last year. Ed Donahue was the high man for the evening with 20. The Rams were again at a disadvantage in height, however, Bill Von Weyhe and Brad Southworth kept the visitors honest. Jim Adams played one of his best games down here. He drove well and was second to Von Weyhe in the scoring department with 15. The Rams dropped a six point verdict, 72-66, to the H oly Cross Crusaders after outscoring the Cross in the second half by four points. Ron Marozzi scored 27 points in 10 field goals and 7 fouls to keep UR1 within striking distance. Von Weyhe played his usual top game off the boards, but scored only 13 points as he sat out the first quarter of the game in a strategic move by Jack Guy. Fordham University visited Keaney Gym and took an 85-71 victory from a hustling Rhode Island team. Marozzi, the Head, gave a top performance in scoring 12 field goals and 28 points. Von Weyhe and " Brad Man " Southworth added 16 points respectively. Fordham s probable All-American Jim Cunningham and 6 1 " Jim McCadney scored 42 of the visitors points. Rhode Island started a four game winning streak by whipping Mass, at Kingston, 71-63. Rhode Island used only five men in the game with all the starters getting double figures. The scoring list had Von Weyhe 19, Marozzi 14, Adams, 11, Madre- perla 12, and " D.U. " Mormando with 10. The University of Rhode Island basketball team, playing like pros, swamped the U. of Maine five 100-60. The passing attack used by Jack Guys charges had the boys from ' down Maine completely baffled In fact, to some of the older fans, the Rhody attack seemed somewhat reminiscent of the teams of old. After U.R.I. ' s Jim Adams broke the ice on a beautiful pass from Von Weyhe, Maine jumped to a 9-5 lead. Madreperla and Von Weyhe 223 dropped in two field goals apiece but Maine’s Mahaney scored six straight points and Kosry two, to match the Rhody effort. With the score tied at 25 all, Rhody took time out. They switched to a man-to-man defense and that was just about it for Maine. U.R.I. then outscored the visitors 12-4 to make the score 37-29 at the half. The second half was all Rhody. The men from Kingston more than doubled the Maine total as they outscored the visitors 63-31. Bill Von Weyhe, high scorer for the night with 31 points, started off the second half with four straight field goals. This seemed to completely unnerve the Maine five and their sloppy passing aptly helped the R.I. cause. The whole team played tremendous ball. They passed and shot with uncanny accuracy. One example of this was the out of bounds play they used on one occasion. Pete Kohlsaat threw die ball up in the air in front of the basket and Von Weyhe tapped it in, similar to the Cousy to Russell play used by the Boston Celtics. . Marozzi followed Von Weyhe in the scoring column with 22 points. Ronnie played his usual smooth game, both offensively and defensively. Steve Madreperla also had a notable 16 points for his evenings labor. However, the points were pretty well spread around, evidence of the superb team effort. Coach Guy cleared the bench late in the game and gave everyone a chance. The boys showed their merit too, .as they kept up the scoring effort, climaxed by a 20 .foot jump shot by " Red " Harm. This enabled the Rams to hit the century mark for the first time this yC Mass. held a 35-28 half-time lead which dissolved slowl in the second half when the Rams moved the ball faster and shot better from all positions. _ ... The second victory in a row was a 77-65 win over Northeastern at Boston. Northeastern stubbornly stayed with URI until the last five minutes when they folded. Von Weyhe scored 30 points while Marozzi, the other half of Rhody’s main offensive punch, tallied 20. In a home test against Colby, Rhode Island edged their northern rivals 83-80. With just over a minute to go the Rams held a seven point lead. Jack Guy again used only five men in winning his fourth straight. Von Weyhe headed the scorers with 25. Marozzi scored 19. Pete Kohlsaat and Steve Madreperla had 14 apiece, and Jim " Touch " Adams scored 11. The team that started Rhody on its winning streak ended it by hand- ing URI its first loss of the year, 84-61, in Yankee Conference play. The Mass, zone defense and a fantastic outside shooting display by Adarnczyk were too much for the Rhody attack and defense. Rhody was in the game until the last 10 minutes when they were outscored 26-8. Von Weyhe (20), Marozzi (18), and Madreperla (16), did most of R.I. ' s scoring. Rhode Island kept the Wildcats from New Hampshire winless in conference play as they won a loosely played game with a stretch drive after yielding a 15 point lead. N.H. was outgunned easily in the first quarter and appeared to be coasting just to finish the game. After the half the Wildcats surprised the Rams and the spectators by pulling even with four minutes to play. Then mysteriously Rhody came out of their deep sleep to score 1 1 quick points for the win. Von Weyhe (19) and Madreperla (16) were the high scorers. The Rams journeyed to Providence for their second game with the high flying Friars. Given little chance against the fifth ranking team in New England, the Rams were down by 18 points at the start of the second half; then they started to move with Von Weyhe taking over. Controlling both boards and throwing in his usual fantastic shots, he paced the Rams as they overtook the Friars and tied the game in the final seconds. His performance was nothing less than spectacular as he seemed to be all over the court at once. Marozzi, scoring 17 of his 19 points in the second half, aided Von Weyhe in the Rams late surge. Adams sank two foul shots in the exciting overtime and Madreperla added the last point in this 73 to 70 upset. As we go to press, the Rams have a seven and eight record with fine prospects for a winning season. rnkn m Ram Scoring Punch Billy and Ronnie For the past seven years Rhode Is- land ' s basketball twins, Ron Morozzi and Bill Von Weyhe have played on the same basketball teams together. And during this time it would not be a misdemeanor to say that they have been two of the best players on the court in any of the games they have played. Their amazing abilities mingled with a modesty and supposition of team play have made them invaluable. Early in the year Marozzi scored 30 points against St. Johns in the Garden, and though he is one of the top scorers in the East, he took only 8 shots in the next game against Providence College. Von Weyhe took up the game after he was injured in grade school foot- ball. His mother bought him a basket- ball, and with Togo Palazzi ' s help (Togo now plays for Syracuse) Billy made the freshman team at Union Hill. Marozzi started basketball while in the eighth grade in a more in- genious manner. " The Head” as he is sometimes called by his teammates be- gan playing on the school team be- cause they were let out early for prac- tice. They played in the same high school in New Jersey under George Faltings who also developed Bill Baird and Togo Palazzi. Bill averaged 23 points a game. In his last encounter he tallied 51 to give him the scoring champion- ship over this year’s teammate Steve Madreperla when Steve played for Weehawken. At that time, Marozzi was more noted for his playmaking and elusiveness than for his scoring, even though he averaged 19 points per game. Weyhe also led all foul shooters in the nation last year shooting 85%. Marozzi at 6-0 and Von Weyhe at 6-4 are great rebounders who can out- jump opponents inches taller than they. Von Weyhe usually pulls down the defensive rebound, and with a wind- mill throw down court he starts the fast break. If Ron is on the other end he will dribble down his center, try to make a play to a forward running on both sides of him. If he can’t he will wiggle up over the rim and under- handed, drop in the two pointer. Last year and this year they have averaged over 20 points a game. Billy’s top scoring performance was 36 against St. Joseph’s of Philadelphia. He also dumped 35 on Connecticut and 34 on William and Mary. Marozzi scored 30 against St. Johns. Off the court they have " C+” aver- ages with Ron majoring in general business and Bill majoring in physical education and minoring in English. They are in the same fraternity, PIK, where Ron is the Athletic Director and Billy is the House Manager. As for the future, professional ball is very inviting, but whatever Rhody’s basketball twins do they should be very successful, if past performances mean anything. When Ron and Billy came into col- lege they were mostly offensive men but coach Jack Guy stressed defense and taught them to become two way players. They have wonderful praise for Guy, who they think is a wonder- ful coach on and off the court. From their first varsity games as sophomores, Von Weyhe and Marozzi have kept Rhody in a battle for con- ference honors. Last year Marozzi’s swish jump shot at the buzzer against Connecticut was ruled no good by the referee and deprived URI from enter- ing the NCAA tournament. Connecti- cut won the game in overtime. Both of them score on outside jump shots and drive in layups. Marozzi is a faking, twisting driver and Von Weyhe tosses up unorthodox overhand and underhand hooks, layups and one handers. This play made them victims of personal fouls in the opposition’s vain attempts to stop them. Both have alternately held the NCAA record for consecutive fouls converted.

U.R.I. - BASEBALL - 1956 In 1956 under the guidance of Coach Billy Beck, the Rhode Island baseball varsity compiled a 7-win, 10-loss record. The Rams played a much better brand of ball than the record indicates, however, since several of the losses resulted in games that were very much in doubt until the end. In the Yankee Conference, the boys from Kingston won only two of the nine games played, those victories coming over Maine and a highly regarded Connecticut team. The Rame played four doubleheaders, splitting two and dropping two. They were in- volved in four shutouts as well. Ray Peltier, Rhody ' s strong-armed righthander, pitched all four of these games, beating Quonset 12-0 and Brown 4-0, while losing to Providence College 1-0 and New Hampshire 4-0. Although the sea- son as a whole was a rather disappointing one, the Rams won the state championship with a 3-1 record, topping Brown twice and splitting with P.C. Against our old rival, Connecticut, Rhody also managed one of the two games played. Rhody started the season with a bang as the invading Quonset nine went down to defeat, 12-0. Ray Peltier coasted through six innings, allowing the Navy men but one hit. Dick Nordberg and A1 Clegg finished the job by giving no hits. The Rams jumped on Quonset’s starter, O ' Brien, in the first inning for three runs on Jack Wojcik ' s base-clearing triple. From there on the home team had a field day and ended up the afternoon with a total of twelve hits. Johnny Long whacked out three singles, while Leach, Warren, Jones and Wojcik had two hits each. Wojcik drove in four Rhody runs as he added a two-bagger to go along with his triple in the seventh. Leach slugged a homer leading off the fourth, the longest shot of the day. Rhode Island made it two shutouts in a row by turning back Brown in the second game, 4-0. Once again, Peltier got the start; this time going all the way, allowing the Bruins just two singles. The Rams could muster only six singles themselves, but made the most of them. Errors by Brown gave Rhody their first two runs, but it was Peltier who drove home the third and fourth runs with a ninth- inning base hit. Ferrara and Peltier had two hits apiece. It was the Ray Peltier, Pitching Mainstay for the Ram Nine 1957 GAME CAPTAINS John Long John Leach Ram ' s first win over Brown since Coach Beck took over the baseball reins four years before. Dick Nordberg picked up where Peltier left off in the third game, stopping Maine, 5-3, and giving up 3 hits in the process. Bob Becker and Jack Wojcik whacked out a pair of hits each, while Ferrara and Tomellini each picked up a double, pacing the Rams at the plate. A few minutes after Tomellini’s double chased home Gus Edwards in the second inning, Ron stole home as a squeeze attempt failed. Two of Maine ' s runs came as the result of a wind-blown base hit in the top of the second. Rhody traveled to Quonset for the next game, where the Navy men sought revenge for the earlier defeat at the hands of the Rams. Revenge they found, but only after a wild, free-for-all slugfest. Quon- set pounded Peltier this time for ten runs in the first seven innings, and went on to win, 14-12. Right-fielder Bill Becker paced the home team at the plate, while Tomellini (3 singles and a double), Lend- rum (2 triples and a single), and Edwards (a home run and a single) were the big stickers for Rhody. New Hampshire took Rhode Island into camp in the fifth game of the season, 6-1. Lefty Joe Kazura worked on the mound for the Wildcats, giving the Rams only two hits, walking two, and striking out ten. Jim Warren tripled in the second with one out and scored as Gus Edwards bounced out for the Rams only run. Johnny Leach ' s single leading off the game at Durham was the only other hit collected by the boys from Rhody that day. Nordberg took the defeat. The sixth and seventh games of the season were played in a doubleheader with Providence College at Providence. The first of the twin bill was a pitchers ' duel in the full meaning of the term. For Ray Peltier it was a real heartbreaker. Going into the bottom of the ninth, Ray had a no-hitter. But then disaster struck as P.C. got two bloop singles and one solid hit to win the game 1-0. Peltier struck out three and walked four over the course of the game, and truly deserved to win it. Bob Ritacco, the Friars ' hurler, was equal to the task, however — he also deserved to win. Jack Wojcik led the Rams at the plate with two of his team ' s five hits. In the nightcap, Rhody answered back with a 13-4 bombarding of four Providence pitchers. Di t k Nordberg went the first seven innings to get the win, with Dick Pisaturo pitching the seventh (and hnal) inning. Sal Ferrara had a great time at the plate, connecting for a homer, a triple and two singles in four trips. His four hits netted him eight runs-batted-in and one of the greatest days ever celebrated by a Rhode Island athlete. Leach, Lendrum and Edwards had two hits each. Leach proved his worth as a base-runner when his hits and three base-on-balls netted him five runs scored. , The Rams next journeyed to Vermont for another doubleheader. This time they dropped both ends, 16-11 and 3-2. In the opener, the Catamounts sewed it up early, scoring eight times in the third and six times in the fourth. Pisaturo, relieving Peltier in the fourth, kept the Green Mountain boys runless over the last four innings. Ferrara had another fine day, belting a home run and a pair of one-baggers; Warren and Wojcik also slammed out three hits apiece, including a triple for Jim and a double for Jack. The second end of the twin-bill was a much better played ball game; Vermont pulled it out 3-2, staving off a belated Ram threat. Rhody spotted the Catamounts a three-run lead at the end of four innings, then the Rams bounced back in the top of the fifth with a pair. Walks to the reliever Nordberg and Johnny Long, combined with base hits by Leach and Becker, put the visitors back in the game. That was the end of Rhody ' s offensive for the afternoon though, and Vermont swept the double header. Leach picked up two of the Ram ' s five hits. The tenth game brought the Brown Club to Kingston for a return match. This time the Rams ripped into the Bruins ' pitching in the late innings to blast out a 10-1 win, making it a clean sweep over the Ivy Leaguers for the year. Dick Nordberg and Bob Nelson hooked up in a tight pitchers’ battle for the first five innings, then Rhody broke up the scoreless tie in the sixth with a single run. In the seventh and eighth the roof fell in on Nelson as the boys from Kingston picked up four and five runs respectively. Dick Lendrum and Johnny Long were the hitting stars, each driving in three runs. Dick had three hits and John, two. Nordberg scattered five Bruin hits, walked only two and struck out four; Brown did not dent the plate against him until the ninth frame. Northeastern was the next foe in a game played in Boston. The Huskies came from behind to take Rhody by a score of 8-6. It ap- peared that the Rams meant to make short work of their hosts as Bob Becker doubled home three runs in the second. The Huskies bounced right back, however, with a pair in the fourth and six big runs in the fifth. That closed out Northeastern ' s scoring for the day, but Rhody pecked away to pick up three additional tallies in the later innings. Sal Ferrara ' s homer with a mate aboard in the seventh accounted for two of the runs. Sal ' s three hits and Becker ' s two singles led the Rams at the plate. The Redmen from Mashachusetts were next on the Rhode Island schedule, in a doubleheader. Once again the Rams blew a lead in the waning innings to lose 6-5 in the first game. Going into the bottom of the seventh they led 2-1; but then Massachusetts came up with a cluster of three. Rhody found themselves down by two runs as they came up to hit in the ninth. With two out and two on, Peltier reached on an error scoring one run, putting it up to Leach. John slapped a clean single to left to tie up the game, and when the ball got past the left fielder Peltier legged it home to put the Rams back in the lead. The Redmen came roaring back, however, in their half of the inning to win the contest by chasing across two runs. Peltier took a tough loss in relief, while Leach ' s three hits paced the Rhody attack offensively. The nightcap went to Massachusetts as well, by the score of 8-5. The fourth frame was a big one for both teams, with Rhode Island tallying four times and UMass answering back with six. Ray Peltier dropped both ends of the twin-bill by losing this one. However, he banged out two-for-two at the plate, to supplement Warren ' s two singles and Ferrara ' s home run in pacing the Ram batters. Three hits by shortstop Gobielle aided the Redmen to victory. Rey Peltier Bob Becker 1957 GAME CAPTAINS The New Hampshire team made the trip to Kingston for Rhody’s fourteenth game and Joe Kazura fame along with them. The south- paw, who had stopped the Rams the first time on only two hits and one run, this time did himself one better. He gave up three hits here at Keaney Field, but shut the hometowners out. Ferrara, Warren and Peltier managed the only base hits off Kazura ' s offerings while Joe ' s teammates eked out their runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh. Having dropped four in a row, the Rams took on Springfield and went to work early to down the Gymnasts, 7-3. Dick Nordberg kept seven hits well spaced over the full route, running into difficulty in the fifth stanza only, when Springfield sent three men across the plate. Rhody had given Nordberg a cushion in the first two innings though, and Dick was equal to the task of holding his opponents away the rest of the game. One of Gus Edwards ' two singles accounted for a couple of runs in the first. A base hit by Becker, a three-bagger by Ferrara and Lendrum ' s single brought home two more scores in the second. Becker had two hits along with Edwards, as Nordberg won his fourth game as against three losses . The Rams closed out the season with a doubleheader versus our big rivals from Connecticut, at Kingston. In the first game Ray Peltier showed his best form since early in the season. Ray turned back the Huskies 3-2, limiting them to four hits and one walk. He also came through with the game winning hit in the last of the ninth. With the score tied 2-2, two men out, Johnny Long on first via a base-on-balls, Peltier lashed a line double to left sending Long scooting home with the big tally. " Tink” Kilbreth of UConn had matched Peltier throughout the game, until the ninth. Ferrara and Warren h amm ered out a pair of hits each, as did Peltier. Sal ' s hits included a triple, while Jim and Ray each picked up a double. Bill Risley returned UConn ' s compliments in the nightcap by posting a four-hitter in return, leading the Huskies to a 6-1 victory. Dick Nordberg took his fourth defeat, while Becker, Warren, Wojcik, and Long collected the hits. Left to right. Row 1; Kohl- saat, P.; ' Leach, J.; Jerue, J.; Krause, K.

Cross Country team showed a marked improvement over the 1955 season under Coach Tom Russell in his first season at Rhode Island. The sea- son record stood at three wins, four losses, in dual meets, fourth place in the Yankee Conference, sixth in the fifteen school NEICAA and twenty-first in the twenty-six school IC4A meet. The squad was made up of Tom McIntosh, Harry Hampson, Tucker Wright, Dave Horne, A1 Vilardofsky, Luke Conboy, Ralph Fostin, Bill Schnitzer, Angelo Mangili, Jim Brady, Dale Hinchdiffe, Bill Turnbull, Art Lewis, Ed Sozanski and John McGarrahan. The entire squad with the exception of Turnbull, a 1955 letter winner who was unable to complete the entire season this year, will be returning for the 1957 hill and dale campaign with the Freshman team led by George Cushmac and Ed French. In the season’s opener the Rams toppled Spring- field 22-37 with Tom McIntosh and Harry Hampson, settling what was to become a familiar pattern, fin- ishing one-two. The Russell men made it two in a row when New Hampshire fell 25-30. McIntosh and Hampson again led the Rams to victory at Durham. The harriers met Northeastern in their first home meet of the season. Tom McIntosh set a course record and Hampson was close behind in the number two spot, but Northeastern ' s group-running tactics couldn’t be broken up by the remaining Rams and the Rhode Islanders suffered their first set-back 26-30. Next it was Providence College at Kingston with the Friars prevailing 26-30. Bill Hanlon of P.C. snapped Tom McIntosh’s course record in this meet. McIntosh (3), Harry Hampson (4), Tucker Wright (5) and Dave Hoane (7) were the outstanding per- formers for the Rams. At Providence the Rams got back into the win column at the expense of arch-rival Brown. In this meet Harry Hampson reversed the pattern of pre- vious meets and defeated Tom McIntosh. The Rams won 26-31. At home again the Rams lost to UConn led by New England Champion Lew Stieglitz, 24-33. Stieg- litz also lowered the course record. In the final dual meet of the season the Rams, minus Tom McIntosh, couldn ' t cope with the Ford- ham Rams. Hampson ran first for Rhody. Due to the illness of Tom McIntosh, Rhode Is- land ' s performance in the Yankee Conference, NEICAA, and IC4A was not up to par. Aside from this, Rhode Island performed creditably in these meets. » J Y2 TRACK AND FIELD 1956-57 Row 1: Horton, R.; Maiello, A.; Dubois, C; Ferrara, G.; Krause, K.; Roberti, C Row 2: Kiska, T.; Blake, D.; Williston, K.; McDaniels, E.; Vilar- dofsky, A.; DiMaio, A.; Grinnell, L.; Devine, J.; Mellone, j.

The popular Mai Williams took over as head coach after serving as assistant to former track coach and now athletic director Fred Tootell. Unfortunately Mai resigned his new post after one season . In the season ' s opener, the Wil- liamsmen defeated Connecticut by the lopsided score of 93-42. Superi- ority in the field events provided the Rams with the wide margin of victory. Bob Mairs, with three firsts and a tie for first and a third for a total of 19 points, was the leading scorer. 230 SUMMARY OF RHODE ISLAND SCORING 120 H.H. — 1st, Bob Mairs 220 L.H. — 1st, Bob Mairs 100 — 1st, Bob Mairs; 2nd, Kurt Krause; 3rd, Sal Rebe 220 — 2nd, Bob Horton 440 — 1st, Hal Voorhees; 3rd, Dick Dubois 880 — 2nd, Bill McQuattie Mile — 2nd, Bill Macquattie High Jump — 1st ( three way tie) Bob Mairs, Chris Seegar, Jerry Ferrara Broad Jump — 1st, Chris Seegar; 2nd, Jerry Ferrara; 3rd, Bob Mairs Pole Vault — 1st, Wayne Strawderman; 3rd, (tie) Kiska, Devine Shot — 1st, Carl Roberti; 2nd, Everett McDaniels Discus — 1st, McDaniels; 2nd, Roberti; 3rd, Charley Kachougian Hammmer — 1st, Roy Gammell; 2nd, Roberti; 3rd, McDaniels Javelin — 1st, Seegar; 2nd, Joe Short; 3rd, Tony Dimaio In the second dual meet of the season the Rams made it two in a row with a 91-44 victory over Springfield.

Led by its ace, Paul Butler, the Ram linksmen defeated Maine, Brown, Trinity and Connecticut. They lost two tough matches to the P.C. team whose leading player was Ron- nie Quinn and also to Maine, Bates and Colby. Paul was ably supported by Don Dinger, Bun Rosen, Ernie Greenhalgh, Bob Hammarlund and Ricky Gammage. All these boys had several fine rounds during the season. One of the big disappointments of the season was Butler ' s failure to qualify for the New England Intercollegiate Tournament. Paul was the indi- vidual champion the previous year and went to the National Intercollegiate Tournament where he was finally defeated. Nevertheless, his outstanding play during the season more than compensated for this one bad day which everyone is entitled to have. Golf TENNIS Our netmen, laboring under adverse conditions, failed to win a clash with any of their foes. Our outstanding competitors, Mike Hattub and Art Helmus, have both graduated. Coach Tootell, who replaced Charlie Swanson at the end of the season, faces a complete rebuilding job. He started his rebuilding by calling for candidates in the fall and had them working out on the new tennis courts down on the Plains. With the coming of bad weather, the players went indoors and have been working out every afternoon under Coach Tootell’s supervision. With such determination, progress is inevitable. The future holds bright prospects for a winning team in the future.

From football to basketball the cheerleaders help to keep the Rhody spirit high. This year an enthusi- astic group of boys as well as girls shouted for the " Baby Blue. " The squad followed both the football and basketball teams to quite a few away games, from a Maine game, to basketball in Madison Square Garden. A spirited cheering squad is always a great asset to any team, whether they win, lose, or draw. Our cheerleaders can be depended upon to come through with a " Rhody Locomotive " whenever the going gets a little bit rough, or when Rhody has just sunk the winning basket.

Intercollegiate Dinghy Team is sponsored by the U.R.I. . YACHT CLUB. The members are chosen on the basis of elimination regattas held on Salt Pond. The team has freshmen competing in various freshmen regattas. Both the varsity and freshmen teams race during the fall and spring seasons. Led by Neil Turner and Jim Mullervy, the U.R.I. sailors had a suc- cessful fall season. The leading New England teams provided the opposi- tion and since New England has the best teams in the nation, the Rhode Island skippers matched their skill against the best. Some of the regattas which the Dinghy Team participates in are the C. Sherman Hoyt Trophy Invitation Regatta, the Boston Dinghy Club Gip, and the New England Eliminations. Varsity Rifle Team The University of Rhode Island Rifle Team started firing practice sessions in late September and after a slow start, showed marked improvement throughout the season. In their postal matches with colleges all over the country the team broke even. In these matches the targets are fired in the respective ranges of the competing teams and the results exchanged by mail. The rifle team this year, fired for the first half of the season under the coaching of M Sgt. William J. Mc- Donald and for the second half, under the coaching of M Sgt. Raymond E. Hanford. Outstanding members of the team were Captain Anhur Schreiner and Elton Cohen. These two men con- sistently led the team by firing scores which ranged be- tween 275 and 285- On one occasion Schreiner fired the record total of 291, high for the past three seasons. The team worked under the overall supervision of Captain Robert R. Ruddy for the first semester and William Collins for the second semester.

Phi Mu Repeats Again Another successful intramural season came to a close with Phi Mu Delta winning its fourth straight All Sports Trophy. After being disqualified in foot- ball, they were undefeated at the time, they came on to win the track meet, volleyball and softball to clinch the trophy with a total of 544 points to second place Beta Psi ' s 416 points. Dick Fuller, Don Daubney, Don Riley and Brad Southworth paced Phi Mu to victory in the 1-M track meet. In the softball competition, Phi Mu, led by Bill (No Hit) Fall ' s pitching and hitting, came on to cop the title after dropping an early season contest to Phi Kap. Lambda Chi was a strong contender and tied TKE for second place points. Trian Nacu, with his brilliant slamming game, along with Bill Fall, An Helmus, Brad Southworth, Ted White and Dick Buba had the volleyball league sewed up. Ten points was the greatest point total scored against this talented crew. Phi Sig captured the horseshoe title with Sigma Nu taking second and a two-way tie for third between TEP and PIK. INTRAMURALS September found the boys down under the spotlights at Meade Field play- ing football. This season found the same fast tricky football being played as in the past. Beta Psi ruled League A while SAE and Lambda Chi battled it out for the League B title. Lambda Chi won the League title and defeated TKE to advance to the finals. SAE defeated the powerful Beta Psi team and met Lambda Chi once more, this time for the championship. In as tough and fast a game played this year, SAE defeated Lambda Chi in the upset of the season. In the annual cross country race. Sigma Chi romped home with the title. Rheinhardt, Alvarez and Beauchamp were well up in the scoring for the victors. Phi Mu placed second, Sigma Nu third and SAE fourth to complete the point scoring. The basketball season saw Sigma Chi again emerge as the champion. They picked up 200 points to sweep into the lead in the race for the All Sports Trophy. Paced by A1 Alvarez, Dave Carrill, Wilson, Hamblin and Shaeffer, Sigma Chi coasted in as easy victors by soundly beating Ed Calandra and his Beta Psi boys for the title. Sigma Chi was victorious also in the Foul Shooting Contest as they canned 92 of a possible 125 to garner first place. Phi Mu was second with an aggre- gate total of 86 scored. Ted White, Phi Mu, took individual honors with 23 out of 25. As we go to press the volleyball has just begun and promises to offer the same healthy, keen competition that is provided in the other sports. Following are the final totals for 1955-56 and the present totals of 1956-57. i STANDINGS IN INTRAMUR.AL SPORTS FOR SEASON OF ' 1955-56 1 1 c ,S 2 J 3 (3 1 Organization 1 1 1 1 « " a 5 £ H £ S S X Totals 1 U Dis- 544 Phi Mu Delta qual. 15 200 15 5 35 3 168 100 3 Beta Psi Alpha 168 150 35 20 3 40 416 Rho Iota Kappa 143 86 10 25 18 71 18 371 Lambda Chi Alpha 118 25 30 25 10 3 111 31 353 Phi Gamma Delta 71 89 18 86 75 339 Phi Kappa Theta 71 78 20 3 81 44 3 300 Sigma Chi 50 35 93 25 57 38 298 Tau Epsilon Phi 75 5 89 5 15 2 4 10 71 18 29054 For- Sigma Alpha Epsilon 86 78 30 10 64 feit 3 271 Theta Chi 79 72 10 64 35 260 Phi Sigma Kappa 50 57 35 75 35 252 Sigma Nu 64 10 50 15 81 25 245 Alpha Epsilon Pi 64 71 2 Vi 63 40 24054 Sigma Pi 57 50 56 35 3 201 Dis- 195 Tau Kappa Epsilon qual. 5 79 111 Butterfield 64 78 142 Bressler Rams 64 64 Bressler Tigers 50 50 Bressler 10 10 1956-57 INTRAMURAL STANDINGS Fraternity Touch Football Cross Country Basketball Total Sigma Chi 71.7 35 200 306.7 Beta Psi Alpha 143.4 92.5 235.9 Lambda Chi Alpha 145.6 87.5 233.1 Sigma Alpha Epsilon 141.5 5.0 62.5 209.0 Tau Epsilon Pi 84.2 87.5 171.7 Butterfield 1 2 1.0 169.0 Tau Kappa Epsilon 90.3 75.0 165.3 Phi Mu Delta 87.2 15.0 62.5 164.7 Sigma Nu 75.2 10.0 68.7 153.9 Theta Chi 79.0 62.5 141.5 Phi Gamma Delta 71.7 68.7 140.4 A.

The Association acts as a coordinator for all in- tramural sports and promotes good sportsmanship. The Association not only sponsors inter-house sports in all seasonal games, but also arranges various trips for the intercollegiate field hockey and baketball teams. At the Association’s annual banquet in May, awards are bestowed upon winning teams, and are also received by those women who have accumulated sufficient pointage by participation during the year. They are eligible to receive a shield, key, or a blazer. This year the W.A.A. sponsored a carnival, and all women’s housing units participated, showing once more that the board is constantly striving to promote and sponsor inter-house activities.

Field Hockey A spirited, double elimination tournament was seen this year with an especially exciting duel between Alpha Chi Omega and East Hall, who fought several tied score games, with Alpha Chi finally taking the title. They were evenly matched teams and Alpha Chi had a struggle to the finish. Daylight saving time helped the teams a great deal, but many a game had to be called because of darkness and continued the following day. As this is the first sport of the year, a very enthusiastic group turns out at the field to start another sports year. 238 Basketball The ever-popular basketball season got off to an enthusiastic start this year in another double elimination tourney. The lights blazed all during the dinner hour as Alpha Chi and Alpha Delta Pi fought to an exciting finish. Alpha Chi Omega was the victor, and another season for the keenest competitive sport in the schedule came to a close. Badminton The badminton partial round robin doubles tournament was played off dur- ing the noon hours so as to fit it into busy schedules. Delta Zeta was victorious and they were awarded with a beautiful new trophy, that is now in circulation, and is coveted to be placed on many a mantle. Two members of the badminton club, Sandra Burbank and Loretta Santa- gata participated in a play day held at Pembroke, along with other New Eng- land Colleges. 239 Volleyball Just as soon as the basketballs are put away, out come the volleyballs and nets for another high spirited season. The house games are played in a double round elimination tournament, permitting each team to play at least two games. This sport is very popular with the women, as it allows the largest number of participants to play in a sport. With the tall girls in position to " spike” at the net, and a strong back line, an all out effort is made in a true team spirit. Tennis A Tennis tournament is held in the early fall, due to popular demand, and also during the spring. During the winter months it does not become dormant however, for the practice boards in Lippett are used. Matches are played with University of Conn! and other New England schools. An energetic tourney between houses is enjoyed by two members of each house, who participate in a singles and doubles match. Before the snow is even off the tennis courts ambitious people are out practicing up on their fore- hand and backhand strokes. With the addition of a dozen new tennis courts on campus the sport has taken on a greater appeal than ever. ’ Women’s Rifle Team The Freshman women were enthusiastic about the rifle team this year, and a great many turned out for practice. The rifle team is affiliated with the National Rifle Associa- tion and through this organization our team has fired many postal matches, and in person matches with other colleges. One of the team members, Joyce Doscher, was the first U.R.I. woman to ever fire a perfect score of 100. Joyce Doscher Archery This is a fast growing pastime, and many a pleasant hour has been spent on the arch- ery range. The club has increased two fold and its popularity is spreading constantly. It is offered in both the spring and fall, therefore a double season accounts for the large membership. Under the capable direc- tion of Miss Crooker the club members have made great strides towards improving their skill.

MODERN DANCE CLUB This has become one of the most popular clubs on campus in a very short time. Under the direction of Miss Sandra Genter, the girls have derived much enjoyment by participating in the techniques of the art. The club spon- sored a recital in the spring and presented a selection of very talented numbers, with the entire choreography being executed by members of the dub. The group also presented an exhibition to a number of Junior High School teachers, showing them new and different teaching methods and demonstrating the benefits that can be derived from a club of this type. Graceful Balance A serene study Co-Recreational Badminton The Co-Rec program, sponsored by the W.A.A. is composed of residents from the Men’s and Women’s housing units on cam- pus. The men and women joined together in the badminton doubles tournament; the women matched their skill against the men in the singles tourney. Following an exciting badminton season, the volleyball season com- menced, with teams composed of 4 members from a men’s housing unit. This has become a very interesting tournament, and many a male has come away from the gym realizing that athletic skill may very well be hidden by beauty, and that the sport world does not belong solely to the men. Softball As baseball is America’s favorite pastime, so also is baseball a favorite with all Rhody women. The baseball diamond is invaded by the girls, much to the chagrin of the boys who usually like to play a " pre-chow” inning or two. The cry of " batter-up” summons an enthusiastic group each spring, just as it does on corner lots all over the country. The honor team puts in many hours of practice, warming up for playdays and inter-school games. 243 admotolebgement£ We wish to extend our thanks to the following people ivith- out whose help this year hook tvould not have been possible.
