I Hit JOHN F. DUFFEK Editor-in-Chief MALCOLM S. BEATON Managing Editor LOUIS SANTELLE Business Manager • " • v ROBERT G. TIMKO Managing Editor 1959 ! GRIST I UNIVERSITY TO THE CLASS OF 1959 As a newcomer at URI this year, I feel particularly indebted to the Class of 1959 for welcoming me so warmly to the campus and intro- ducing me to the undergraduate life of the University. I have enjoyed getting to know many of you and through you learning the nature and temper of our student body as a whole. I regret not having become acquainted with each of you, because I shall always have a special affection for the Class of 1959 — the first URI class to which I shall present diplomas. A freshman like myself is in a good position to evaluate what you who have been here longer now take for granted. I congratulate you on your choice of a college and on your successful completion of what I know were four rewarding years. The pages of this Grist reflect the many facets of your learning and living here — from the very informal hours in the Union and the residence halls to the time spent in classes, examinations, and library study. I trust that these years here have laid the foundation for much success and satisfaction in life. One thought I would like to leave with you. Whatever you have gained of practical information, of training in thinking and in the ability to get the facts and analyze them, is of value only if you use these achievements for a worthy purpose and in a spirit of service. The world these days sadly needs not only educated people, but dedi- cated people who have set their goals far beyond personal gain and advancement. It’s a challenging world ahead of you with peace and brotherhood not only a possibility to work toward, but a condition of survival. My hearty good wishes to you. We will follow your careers with interest and pride and hope to welcome you back often to your alma mater. Francis H. Horn, President BOARD OF TRUSTEES Row 1: Mrs. Jose M. Ramos; Dr. James P. Adams, Chairman, Board of Trustees of State C olleges; Miss Catherine M. Casserly, Secretary. Row 2: Mr. Frederick C. Tanner, Vice Chairman; Mr. Robert S. Sherman, Dr. Michael F. Walsh; Mr. Walter F. Farrell. GOVERNOR ' S MESSAGE Perhaps no other decade in our his- tory has posed such awesome challenges to our university graduates than the one now drawing to a close. The 1950 ' s have been marked by a war in Korea, the hydrogen bomb, the per- sistent political intrigues of West versus East and, more recently, man ' s attempt to conquer outer space. Each of these cataclysmic events has prompted mankind to ponder the question, " Where are we going? " You - the sons and daughters of Rhode Island, of our sister states and of foreign countries as well - will now be asked to aid in the search for the answer. Our University of Rhode Island, con- stantly improving its academic depart- ments and physical plant, has done an inspired job of preparing you for your diverse careers. The good people of the state have invested willingly in your success. Now, it is up to you, the future leaders of America. In behalf of the people of Rhode Island, I extend sincere congratulations to you, the Class of 1959, and pray that Almighty God will invoke His Divine blessings upon you.

This man, who is now retired from col- lege administration, had never failed to aid us during the ever-hectic registration per- iods that came with the opening of every semester. This man is among the very few, whose name, when it is mentioned by students, is spoken with sincere respect and admiration. He completed his own college studies in 1926 at Iowa State College, where he re- ceived his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. He was both Dean of Administration and Registrar at URI. Yes, this book is dedicated to Dr. John C. Weldin, who will always be remembered as Dean Weldin. Who can forget the words of the advice, the orders, the directions of those who said, “Go see Dean Weldin.” We consider it our priviledge and good fortune to have known him. Four scant years ago President Woodward welcomed the class of 1959 in the new Keaney Gym as the finest and largest group ever to attend our University. For three years your College activities were under his guidance, and in your last year you were privileged to be under the jurisdiction of President Horn. You are therefore the first class in almost eighteen years to be endowed with the leadership of two capable administrators representing over a half century of educational experience. As Freshmen, you were conditioned by your secondary school experience. Higher education appeared awesome and to some, impossible, but to those of you who have weathered the intellectual storm are seasoned candidates at the portals of success. The door is open wide — you must enter with a firm step, head held high — for you have the encouragement and resource of the entire University. Your tools shall be Knowledge and Skill, integrated with a reverence for Truth. Think for a moment of the painting of Plato’s allegory of the cave, describ- ing as it does the plight of a company of men bound by massive chains of ignor- ance, prejudice, shallow perception and drugged dogma, staring at their shadows on the wall. Education will break the chain and awaken the soul of man and have him face the light of living truth. You must turn and face the light and let Truth be the symbol of total fitness; the mental, physical, emotional and social qualities that result in “mens sana in capore sano” a sound mind in a sound body.

Two delegates from each of the eight sorority units form this repre- sentative body. The six objectives of the group are: To maintain on a high plane sorority life and inter-sorority relations within our University. To further fine intellectual accomplishment and sound scholarship. To co-operate with the university administration in the maintenance of high social standards. To compile rules governing rushing and pledging. To be a forum for the discussion of questions of interest in the university and sorority world. To establish procedures by which potential sorority groups may he recognized and admitted to Panhellenic membership. This year has seen the recognition of a local sorority, a very successful philanthropic clothing drive for the Ladd School, a profitable workshop and an enjoyable Greek Week. 92 ALPHA CHI OMEGA Row 1: Morin, L.; Francis, A.; Sardelli, A., Rec.

The renewal of our annual Harvest Haunt which, after four years was once again a success. The Christmas holidays were a short but glor- ious reprieve before everyone cracked down on the books again — Exams! Wow! After the mid-term vacation we awakened to find planning was necessary for our Pledge For- mal and Initiation which were quickly ap- proaching. As the semester closed more frequent were our visits to Scarborough. Interviews are over, Senior Week is a party of the past, and graduation is a monument to our four fruitful years at U.R.I.

Most of all we’ll remember the friend- ships shared by all, the talks in the living room, the Big Butt room and even the Deck parties, and Chi Omega itself — what it stands for and what it means to each girl. We’ll always remember Mrs. Walker, the most wonderful housemother one could ever imagine. Chi Omega is dear to the hearts of us all, and will always bring back memories of a friend and a home. 97 DELTA ZETA Although this was the last year at Delta Zeta for the class of 1959, we will always have our fond memories of DZ. The wonderful sight that hit our eyes the minute we walked into our redecorated first floor in September, our twenty wonderful pledges after three weeks of rushing, 6 A.M. work ses- sions to work on our Homecoming float, Christ- mas parties, initiation and the initiation ban- quet, sorority sing, and fun filled weekends are but a few of the memories DZ has given us. Uppermost, though, are all the lasting friend- ships made, including that of Mrs. Randall, our housemother. With all these happy thoughts, the seniors now bid adieu to DZ and U.R.I., to con- tinue on their separate ways. DIANE F.

LAMBDA KAPPA SIGMA Lambda Kappa Sigma is an international professional Pharmaceutical Sorority which was transferred from the Rhode Island College of Pharmacy to the University in September, 1957. One of the main social functions of the organization is the annual coffee hour which is held to acquaint the members with the faculty of the College of Pharmacy. This event is held in the fall. In the spring, a dinner is given for the newly initiated members. Mrs. Youngken, wife of the Dean of Pharmacy, is our advisor. 101 HELEN PECK HALL i Peck Hall has proved its stable founda- tion simply because it has survived its first big year!

LOUIS SANTELLE President INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL As stated in its Constitution, the purpose of the Interfraternity Council at U.R.I. is to “promote cooperation among fraternities and to formulate rules and procedures for the rushing and pledging of new fraternity members. It further serves as the regulator of fraternity affairs and insures cooperation between fra- ternities and the University administration.” The IFC is fortunate in having the able assistance and counsel of Dr. John F. Quinn, Dean of Men, and Dr. George E. Osborne. The Faculty Committee on Fraternities, composed of fraternity faculty advisors and the Dean of Men, has served as a medium of advising the IFC on various matters and of reviewing the Council’s actions. The IFC now has the power to “regulate and control any fra- ternity affair that might be considered detrimental to fraternity interests.” It now has full disciplinary action over any and all fraternity activities. 105 ALPHA EPSILON PI Another year for Rho . . .

CZARSTY President KAPPA SIGMA KAPPA The second year in our history, here at the University, has been completed, and we must admit that it has been one of profound importance to both our- selves and National, which was founded in 1867 . The past year has been a memorable one indeed, for the chapter has grown and enriched itself in many respects. We hope that memories of our years together will always be cherished by the seniors. Remember the nights at the turntable — or was it the roundtable? The Homecoming display and return of alumni for the party, the Iris Ball, the Sweetheart Ball, the Conclave, and nights at the “apartment.” The brotherhood of Kappa Sigma Kappa bids farewell to its seniors, and wishes them success and happiness in their respective fields of endeavor. 108 LAMBDA CHI ALPHA Row 1: Lewis, A.; Thibaudeau.

Who could forget the waterfall at the Fiji Islander, or the blizzard during the Pledge For- mal, or the midnight trench drills? And we’ll always look back upon the Newport Homecom- ing Party, Sully’s grievances, “Moonbeam” and “Step-and-a-Half” with fond remembrances. This was the year we got our efficient fire escape and spacious parking lot and the Grand Canyon in miniature across our front lawn, but again, we lost “The Mayor,” “Tucker,” “Wally,” “Ray,” and “Easterbunny.” We’ll never forget Kappa Rho or our heart-warming experiences there, and yet, as we reminisce, perhaps we Fijis are glad that the future is here.

And so as we leave these hallowed halls of Ivy, we have with us only memories of the good, the better, and the best. Long will be re- membered the socials, the “Tea Parties,” the “Mechanical” Functions, the Homecoming Dis- play — “Oh why didn’t it work?” The Beach Parties, the sandwich runs to Iggy’s, and of course dear old “Uncle” Moy. Who could ever forget the traditional Phi Kap Hayrides — we almost broke even this year. Although the treasury looks sick, it was all well spent — espe- cially that which was spent on the pinnings. It was well worth the roses to see our “die hard” Prexy fall by the wayside. Again this year the Rose Formal was a smash- ing success, imparting the finest traditions and feelings within the outgoing seniors. And to our beloved Housemother — not good- bye, just — so long for now. WILLIAM F. LOVETT, JR. President PHI KAPPA THETA Row 1: Garreau, R. ; Allen, E.; Teubert, B.

Few will forget, much less the seniors, the changes that occur in the house from year to year, this last year included. Phi Mu — as ever, still allied to the Union, physically and spiritually — a treasure chest bulging with pledges with names few could pro- nounce — a heaven for the “Lord” and a tele- phone booth for “Sweets” — an arena for the Redhead — a reception room for “Smiley” Hackett, the pledges’ delight — a hangout for the old pros, Dan, Al, and Jim — the “Cut Capi- tal” of campus where Howie and the “Nibbler” give and take ’em, “sorry Nib” — where L. S. sits and steers at the top of the triangle — and, let us not forget the first women ever to be al- lowed within these hallowed walls as part of Phi Mu — our new cook, B.

PHI SIGMA KAPPA Another year has sped quickly by leaving many fond memories for graduating seniors to cherish and for underclassmen to recall in the fraternity bull sessions held in our little white house on the corner. This was the year of our addition, the winning of three football games, the three-point averages on the new system, the rule of the Fabulous Rock, and one of the best pledge classes in recent years. It was also the year that our bowling team was way out in front. The problems of the world were debated and solved by the infallible few, who never did have a quorum. Through this myriad of social events, arguments, sing practices, beach days, and so forth, our tertiary brothers, the seniors, mutate into our esteemed “alums” to whom we wish the best of luck and a hearty “Oom Ya Ya.” RHO IOTA KAPPA The active chapter and the alumni chapter of Rho Iota Kappa proudly announce that PIK, founded in the year 1908, is now enjoying its 50th anniversary year. This fact is significant for two reasons, the first being that PIK has been strong enough and flexible enough to weather the many changes and controversies that came about during these 50 years and still retain all the glory, good fellowship, and tradition inherent in being the first and oldest fraternity on the campus of U.R.I. The second is a boast by the University of Rhode Island that she has matured enough to have a fraternity on her campus with 50 years of successful growth and development behind it. The association has been a very pleasant one for both the University and Rho Iota Kappa. The trend among fraternities all over the United States is toward national organization. PIK not having lost any of her flexibility is contemplating the possibilities of national organization. If the decision is made to go national, I am sure that the choice will be an organization that will be a credit both to the University and to PIK. No matter with which national organization PIK chooses to affiliate, she will add to it dignity and above all tradition. EVERETT S. McDANIEL President RHO IOTA KAPPA Row 1: Alolslo, A.

Keeping within the trend, we decided to expand our own facilities. This caused some confusion, needless to say, blended as it was with rallies, parties, football games, parties, follies, parties, pledging, parties, vacations, parties, the Metacomet, the Shuffle, and oh yeh! exams. As we collect more trophies for scholarship under the watchful eye of big brother, we fore- see a future that couldn’t be brighter. College forms a basis for life, and fraternity adds to the base with all that a man will take. S.A.E. is a distinctive way of life that completes a college career. As our seniors leave and pledges take their places the idea of our fraternity lives in the success of our graduates. JOHN B. McGARRAHAN, JR.

In scholarship, we were second among seventeen campus fraternities. Our social calendar was not neglected by any means. The annual Sigma Chi Derby and Bar- bary Coast being noted as outstanding campus events, and our Sweetheart Weekend, a beauti- ful and memorable event for each member of our fraternity. Pledges, wet-behind-the-ears and sophisticated seniors all had a part in extending our chapter’s record of achievement. May we all profit forever from the brotherhood we shared at Sigma Chi.

Brown Weekend, Homecoming, Pledge Formal, Christ- mas, New Year’s Eve, initiations, Dogpatch Daze, White Rose Formal, and a few Caldwell specials kept the house jumping. Pinnings, pledge train- ing, intramurals and other activities aided in making a memorable year at the fraternity. A farewell to our graduating brothers, who have been an important class in the advance- ment of the fraternity. We would also like to welcome our new pledges and wish them suc- cess in carrying on in as fine a way as did our departing seniors.

Another year has passed, a year of happiness, progress, and memories. Memories of rallies, Christmas parties in November, spaghetti at Giro’s — working on Homecoming display at 5:00 a.m. — long walks to North Hall through mud and over bridges. Memories of our Pledge Formal, Initiation Banquet, parking tickets — bull sessions — climbing four flights of stairs — the constant cry of “Let’s get this meeting over with because I’ve got exams tomorrow” — study, study, study — “Curly and Magoo” — Al’s at the Union again? And we remember beach days when every- body ate frankforts and potato chips on an is- land nearby. Of long assignments left in those dusty books, reports and term papers started at 2:00 a.m. and due at 8:00 a.m. the next morning, the Orchid Ball, and a hard working bowling team. We’ll be looking forward to sleeping on the decks again next year when we move into our new house, and hope we progress as much next year as we did this year. Good-by class of ’59. We’ll remember your contributions to U.R.I., and to dear old Sigma Pi. We extend to you a “well done,” and good sailing. TAU EPSILON PHI Tau Epsilon Phi commenced the year by ful- filling a project long overdue. A new coat of paint made the old house perk up and sparkle ready to unfold the many traditions of which TEP is so proud. On 22 Campus Ave., the white house with the black shutters represents some- thing more than Brotherhood; it represents an awakening of the individual to his duties to his fellow man and cooperation with him always. We know that this feeling has rubbed off on our departing seniors. TEP bids adieu and salutes the “Class of 1959.” We are very proud of the vivacity given us during their school years. They leave mem- ories not soon to be forgotten. Tom Cutler — house boy in the green hornet, Paul Waitze — peculiar antics and charming temperament, Howie Irving — El Rojo and his suaveness, Robert Aldrich and Larry Wilson — walking hand in hand throughout life, Murray Zaretsky — Freudian theories, Lou Rochira — the commuter, and Bruce Burns — the out- spoken one.

CAPUANO President THETA CHI As we end another year, we glance back with fond recollections of an unforgettable year in our life. There is much to remember. The social events which have been so enjoyable — The Pledge Formal, Paddy Murphy’s, Beaux Arts Ball, and The Spring Formal — not to mention all the good times which have no title. The intramural athletic contests; many won, some lost. Classes, books, and cuts and the exams for which we studied too late. The pledges who had their long sought goal to become Theta Chi’s fulfilled. This Spring, we have picked up an- other excellent pledge class. These are all won- derful memories as are the other enjoyable events which meant so much to all of us here at 14 Upper College Road. As Senior Week draws near, college life at Eta will end for many of us. They will not return next September, but what they have done for the University of Rhode Island, Theta Chi, and all of us will not be soon forgotten. May they be as successful in the business and professional worlds as they have been here and may they return often.

RICHARD BUTTERFIELD President BRESSLER HALL Our Bressler Hall Dormitory Association has certainly been successful in achieving its primary purpose of promoting fraternal atmosphere within the dormitory. The as- sociation has realized a large increase in membership over preceding years, with a result of having great interest and enthu- siasm among its members. Many improve- ments have taken place because of the fine work accomplished by our Executive Dor- mitory Committee. A successful season in intra-mural athletics as well as a fine Homecoming display are just a couple of our achievements. Our stay at Bressler Hall will not soon be forgotten for it has made its way into the hearts of its residents. BUTTERFIELD HALL Row 1: Jacquart, H.; Dwyer, J., Sec.; Leach, L. R„ V.

BUTTERFIELD HALL When listing experiences to be remem- bered, we speak first of those treasured — friendships both old and new. Then we sing of parties, rallies, and sock-hops. We curse that too-loud noise next door, pro- fessors, courses, exams; snear at inspec- tions, lunch lines, and alarm clocks; snicker at hidden hot-plates, dusty comers, floor- sponsors; and then down the line — to glassy eyeballs, smoke, juke-boxes, “that girl”; anticipation of frat-bids, vacations, finals. Then to return to the warm pride of mom and dad — to hear . . . “You’ve changed!” 124 ' I gfe r Vs . • • ■ VU» b , V e Vl • ■ • • ' .WV . . • 9« ■•■ ' T a f ' ! ° o J The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897, the charter for the local chapter being granted on April 25, 1913. There are two guiding philosophies. One is the conviction that by recognizing and honoring those who have excelled in scholarship, other students may be inspired to work for high rank. The other is the equally strong belief that scholarship is not limited to any single field of endeavor, but may be, and should be, universal. The highest undergraduate honor is election to membership during the seventh semester. Most students are elected toward the close of their college course. Spring elections are also concerned with outstanding graduate stu- dents and members of the university faculty. 126 SIGMA XI Seated: Fish, C. J.; Fish, M.; Palmatier, E.

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 on campus 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 establish- ment 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. 127 r TAU BETA PI Seated: Cooney, R.; Garreau, R.; Pezzullo, R., V.

WILLIAM F. LOVETT, JR. President TAU BETA PI Tau Beta Pi is a national honor fraternity of engineers. This fraternity is, in engineering, 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 undergraduated in Engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in the engineering colleges of America. An engineering faculty rating system is one of the many projects of Tau Beta Pi. 128 ' I ARTHUR K. LEWIS President ALPHA ZETA Seated: Leath, K., Treas. ; Bell, R.

ALPHA ZETA Alpha Zeta, the national honorary agriculture fraternity, maintains its purpose by fostering and developing high standards of scholarship, char- acter 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 scholastic honors. In addition to the customary activities, an annual steak roast stages in the Fall for member-alumni, and an initiation ceremony and banquet in the Spring constitute this Chapter’s objective — dedication of agriculture through achievement. 129 PHI ALPHA THETA Seated: Peekham, E.; Swinden, C.; Kelley, M.

Pi Sigma Alpha Fraternity is the National Political Science Honor Society. Its chapters are established in colleges and universities of accredited and rec- ognized standing which offer at least the prescribed minimum of work in political science. The University of Rhode Island chapter was initiated in the spring of 1955, and the names of eighteen students and faculty charter members are inscribed on a scroll in Quinn Hall. Primary qualifications of student candidates for active membership include high scholarship, manifested interest in political science, and promise of achieve- ment in their standing is a distinction that is worthwhile and an encouragement toward continued intellectual effort. PHI SIGMA The Phi Sigma Biological Society has the Alpha Xi Chapter on this campus. It was char- tered on May 17, 1935. The society consists of active alumni, faculty, and honorary members. Juniors with an average of B, or better, in Bio- logical subjects are elected on the basis of their interest in the field of biology. 131 OMICRON NU Omicron Nu is by definition an honor society. Our aims include the promotion of scholarship, leadership, and research as our part in the world-wide home economics movement. The program of activities here at Alpha Mu Chapter with honors luncheons, book and scholarship awards, orientation lectures, and finally our tapping of new members has given us a year to remember. Our greatest pride this year has been in having the national president of Omicron Nu, Mrs. Elizabeth W. Crandall, on campus in the College of Home Economics faculty.

Member- ship is based upon active participation in campus activities and creditable scholar- ship. By fostering cooperation among the administration, the faculty, and the student body, the organization attempts to find so- lutions to campus problems. Among the responsibilities of the Sachems are: the care of Rameses, the University mascot; the supervision of freshmen traditions, the planning and execution of the football rallies, the Rhody Revue, and their own Convocation in the spring. Since their for- mation, the Sachems have contributed to a more active school spirit. BLUE KEY Row 1: Collins, G. ; Robinson, B. L. ; Pitchersky, J. Row 2: Finizio, N., Treas. ; Berghman. J., V.

During 1958, the Blue Key has, in addition to its usual host functions, participated in Freshman Week and Open House programs. The activities of Blue Key have continued to grow in scope and importance, so that now, in 1959, Blue Key is taking its place among our campus groups as an honorary organization of students, leaders and coordinators, second only to Sachems, and cooperation more and more with that group. 134 SCABBARD AND BLADE Row 1: Wrigley, R.; Scungio.

With its members elected on a unit basis, the Senate is a truly representative organization which supervises extra-curricular activities involving the students. Some of the activities of the Senate are control of all class elections, spon- sorship of the Campus Chest, and the approval of constitutions of all newly formed campus organizations. The Senate is justly proud of its achievements over the past year. The tra- ditional fine for unexcused cutting of classes before and after a holiday is no longer imposed. A new undertaking was the scheduling and supervision by the Senate of Homecoming events. The election of a Homecoming Queen was instituted as a part of the day’s activities with the float and lawn display competition highlight- ing the program. Conducting another successful Faculty Curriculum Evaluation program in the College of Business Administration strengthened the value of this program which was initiated by the Student Senate.

SCROLL Scroll is one of the smaller and more informal campus organizations. Its goals are to enjoy, discuss, and encourage creativity in the Fine Arts. Meet- ings are consequently relaxed, or sometimes strongly controversial, and generally devoid of rules of procedure, which tend to cripple creative and spontaneous discourse. For the writers we publish a journal. The field of art still has plenty of room for development, while music has been some- what neglected. We often show films, either documentary, or fictional class- ics considered works of art alone or good portrayals of great novels. It is impossible to please everyone; thus attendance at meetings may range from ten to two hundred, with an average of about twenty. Serious thinkers and artistic creators come in small numbers; but they are the salt of our society, and indeed, of the Earth. 149 Managing Editors Robert G. Timko, Malcolm S.

Included within this year’s meetings were numerous excellent speakers and films upon which interesting discussions were held. The culmination of the year’s efforts is the publication of our own Socius An- nual which was a limited distribution to those interested in it’s literary contents. ARLENE A.

President ASTRONOMY SOCIETY Organized in October of 1958, the Astronomy Society is the University’s youngest organization. With today’s accent on space and other related sub- jects, many people are taking a serious interest in astronomy. The Astrono- my Society does not restrict its membership to students alone, but has provision in its constitution for honorary members, who would be people around South County who are interested in astronomy. Ground work for the organization of the society was done by Adelbert McIntyre, graduate student in physics. The society’s first officers are: Wil- liam Ferringo, President; Rudolph Hempe, Vice-President; Allan Sinclair, Secretary; Bernard Tubert, Treasurer. The faculty advisor to the society is Professor Scott Umsted, professor of astronomy. 159 LITTL E REST DEBATE SOCIETY “Remember the issues” is a phrase the Rhode Island debaters will long remember after they stop packing their bags to go to tournaments. Spending long hours in the library, analyzing evidence, learning to think logically — these are things the debaters will never forget. 160 MEN COMMUTERS’ ORGANIZATION Seated: Johnson, N., V.

GRENIER President MEN ' S COMMUTERS The Men’s Commuters’ Club was organized here, at the University of Rhode Island, in February of 1958. Initially devoted to advancing facilities for the growing commuting element, it has, upon realizing its immediate goals, developed into a social organization as well. The men commuters’ officers, in addition to their regular duties, officiate over the club. Residing at “Club 400,” the Men’s Commuters’ Club maintains sight of its original purpose while entering into social and athletic activities. The club offers men commuters the first really unified organization, for which their number has so long been in need. The culmination of the years efforts is a club sponsored outing. Although, founded by and for men commuters, membership in the club is open to all interested male students. 161 YACHT CLUB Row 1: Mintel. J.; Ayotte, R., Treas.; Mawby, N., V.

DAVID R. SCOTT President YACHT CLUB The University of Rhode Island Yacht Club was established for the pur- pose of gathering together all the students interested in sailing, to improve their skill by instruction and experience, and to encourage and promote good sportsmanship in racing competition. The club maintains a club house and boats on Salt Pond in Wakefield for the use of its members. Socially, the Yacht Club sponsors two picnics and a campus Shipwreck Dance each year. The club is an active member of the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association, and is responsible for the intercollegiate Dinghy Team which represents U.R.I. in racing competition with other New England Colleges and Universities. 162 INTERCOLLEGIATE DINGHY TEAM Seated: Mintel, J.; Cohen, M., Race Chmn.; DeGoey, A.

The members are chosen on the basis of elimination regattas held on Salt Pond. The team has freshmen competing in various freshmen regattas. Roth the varsity and the freshmen teams race during the fall and spring seasons. The sailors have had a successful season. The leading New England teams provided the opposition 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 Cup, and the New England Elimination. 163 UNIVERSITY PETER G. BRADLEY President It is difficult to evaluate the success of a theatri- cal season as most of our endeavors are judged by the reaction of the audience. And by these stand- ards we are able to relate, although hearsay, that the current year was well received in every aspect. Much of this can be attributed to the success of last season’s Brigadoon, but a growing interest in the theatre is very evident on our campus. The Phi Delta Players returned to a precedence lost in recent years. This was with the all student production, directed as well as acted. Dirty Work at the Crossroads, a gay-nineties melodrama in three acts. Inherit The Wind was the door to which another precedence was established, the presentation of a Homecoming Show. In its five performances. Inherit The Wind played to an audience of about a thousand, an attendance record never before equaled by the University Theatre. The fifth performance of Inherit The Wind was presented at the annual High School Theatre Workshop in December. In this Workshop visiting schools from all over the state were given the op- portunity to perform their own work before critics chosen from the faculty and nearby colleges. The George Latshaw puppets performed for the fourth graders of the neighboring grammar schools as a joint Christmas gift from the University Theatre and the South County School Department. In the evening Mr. Latshaw presented a sophisti- cated spoof in a Revue for adults. While many University Theatre personnel were busily engaged in the success of Rhody Revue — 1959, the organization presented in March Squaring The Circle, a Russian comedy on the extreme hous- ing shortage in modern Russia. In May the University Theatre presented its last show of the season, Part I of Shakespeare’s Henry IV. Throughout the year, program meetings with guest speakers, play readings, and experimental acting were conducted as part of our curriculum. Honorary members, chosen from the faculty and friends of the University Theatre, were elected into this growing organization. Honorary members for 1958-1959 include Mrs. Robert E. Will, Dr. Grace B. Sherer, Miss Sandra Genter, Mrs. Del Carlson, Miss Marie Metuza, Dr. Warren Smith, Prof. Ward Abusamra, and Mr. Henry Kimner. All those connected with the University Theatre, whether it be the stage or the audience, have real- ized the outstanding quality of the past presenta- tions. There is a single person who is responsible for this. Prof. Robert E. Will has been the very life-blood of the existence of the University Thea- tre since he first came to Rhode Island.

The Pershing Rifles are composed of a select group of students in the R.O.T.C. They exert a strong influence for the highest ideals of the military order. Only those men who have the strength and interest to maintain the ideals of Pershing have remained with the company, making it stronger than it would otherwise be. 171 WRIU The campus radio station, WRIU, which was formed in 1939, adds to the University commun- ity the service of radio broadcasting from a stu- dent’s viewpoint. 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 cam- pus. Music, news, sports, and special programs constitute WRIU airtime. WRIU, a member of the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, as a special service to the campus community, cov- ered this year’s national elections with the aid of two other collegiate stations. To increase our usefulness to fellow students, a plan for an all day broadcasting schedule has been initiated. SCOTT UMSTED, JR. Station Manager WRIU Row 1: Pilton.

Our departing seniors may ponder in retrospect the parties, sessions, arguments, and pledge uprising which were dispersed through their final year of schol- astic endeavors. Especially will they recall the coveted John C. Weldin Trophy and the unusual entertainment at the Formal. This certainly has been a rewarding year, and we leave in confidence knowing that those remaining will maintain our standing on campus both professionally and socially. FREDERICK S.

RHO PI PHI Rho Pi Phi International Pharmaceutical Fraternity was transferred from the College of Pharmacy and Allied Sciences in Providence to the campus as a result of the acquisition of the College of Pharmacy by the University of Rhode Island. Of prime importance to Rho Pi Phi is that of achieving a professional attitude and schol- astic success while incorporating social functions into the yearly calendar. Open invitations are continually extended by other chapters of Rho Pi Phi in surrounding states. Rho Pi Phi was formed in Boston in 1919 and since then has grown in size until the chapters extend throughout the United States and into Canada. Delta chapter is honored to have as one of its alumni, a founder and past Supreme Coun- cellor of Rho Pi Phi, Bud Weiser. Although just newly activated the enthusiasm displayed by our brothers is without hounds. Plans for the future are such that they will be felt not only throughout the campus but through- out the state. We, of Delta Chapter, Rho Pi Phi, hope to fulfill all those characteristics which are asked of by the University and to become an inter- grated part of the University’s community. 183 ■jm AMERICAN PHARMACEUTICAL ASSOCIATION The American Pharmaceutical Association is one of the newest organizations on the U.R.I. campus. This branch had its beginning at the R.I. College of Pharmacy and Allied Sciences in Providence, and came to the U.R.I. campus with the College of Pharmacy. The A.Ph.A. is a na- tional organization with student branches lo- cated in most colleges of pharmacy in the United States. The purpose of the A.Ph.A. is to encourage in the broadest and most liberal manner the advancement of pharmacy as a science and as a profession. Membership consists of students who are in good class standing in the U.R.I. College of Pharmacy. Among the annual activities of the A.Ph.A. are, the freshmen reception for pharmacy stu- dents, a Christmas party, a picnic and a semi- formal dinner dance. We would like to thank Dr. J. De Feo for helping us to get organized here at U.R.I. and Dr. Leonard Worthen for helping us this year. FREDERICK J.

This was the first time in seven seasons that the Huskies were able to down the Rams. Tom Flaherty of Northeastern was a valuable asset to Northeastern’s offense, scoring three touchdowns and ac- counting for 215 yards with his outstanding running and passing. There was no score in the first period and it wasn’t until early in the second quarter when Souzette of Northeastern intercepted a Pearson pass that Northeastern’s scoring drive was set up. After many attempts to crash through the Ram’s defensive line, they finally tried a roll-out pass from Flaherty to Allen which was good for 50 yards and set the ball on Rhody’s five yard line. The score came when Flaherty crashed through on a keep play to the left. The point after attempt was unsuccessful and the Huskies were ahead 6-0. The Rams, still in there fighting, got back into the game with a pass from Pearson to Rollins for 23 yards. This put the ball on the Huskies 30 yard line, and it was further ad- vanced to Northeastern’s 18 by efforts of “Big Bill” Pol- land, Donny Brown,’ and Roger Pearson. Then on a success- ful pass from Pearson to Charron, the Rams found them- selves on the Huskies five and by a right side plunge through the line by Rollins, the score was tied 6-6. The Rams also were unsuccessful in their attempt to score the extra points when Poland’s drive was halted. Northeastern’s Flaherty was able to score in the last 55 seconds of the second quarter, making the score 12-6 at halftime. The third quarter was evenly balanced except when Rhody’s John Rollins took a punt on his own 40 and surged ahead to Northeastern’s five. This might have been an im- portant turning point in the game, except the Huskies were quick to retaliate with their strong defense and pushed the Rams back to the 15 where they took over. Northeastern was able to score twice in the last quarter. The first score came when Flaherty drove over from the Ram’s ten yard line. Again the point after attempt was un- successful, the score remained 18-6. The last tally for North- eastern came when Jim Hennessey fired a pass to Allen who made a terrific 87 yard run to score. The point after attempt was good when Hennessey passed to Herringway and this made the score 26-6. Although the second half was dominated by the Huskies, the Rams made many fine attempts both offensively and defensively and showed plenty of spirit and fight. RHODE ISLAND 8 — MAINE 37 The URI Rams received their second consecutive defeat at the hands of the Maine Bears. The score in this game does not show a true picture because the Rhody 11 had many bad breaks. There was not much action in the first quarter until Rollins fell back to kick on his own 46. A bad pass from center bounced back to the Ram’s 27 where the Bears took over. After nine attempts they finally scored when Jack Therrault stepped across from the one. They scored the point after on a pass making the score 8-0. In the second quarter, the Bears registered two more TD’s on sustained marches of 75 and 11 yards. Pickett scored both the touchdown and the point after in the first drive, and Jack Welch scored on the second after a Maine lineman blocked Roger Pearson’s punt. A pass from Pickett to Champion made the score 24-0 at half time. The Bears scored again in the third period when they went 64 yards in nine plays. Welch did some fine running in this series and he scored the touchdown from the one. They missed the point after, but led 30-0. Rhody also scored in this period on a pass from Pearson to Ray Char- 204 Row 1: Perkins, E.; Charron, R.; Smymios, G. ; Peltier, R. ; Lindemann, A.; Dickey, D.

Coach. ron. The play covered 73 yards with Charron running 53 yards after taking the ball on his own 47. The point after attempt was good on a toss from Pearson to Smyrnios mak- ing the score 30-8. The last touchdown for the Bears came in the last quar- ter when Wayne Champion drove from his own 48 to score. This time the Bears kicked the extra point making the final score of the game 37-8. The Rams played well, but were unable to muster enough power to keep up with Maine’s heavy scoring. Bill Poland and Gene Peck made some fine gains offensively, and defensively Jack Dusel and Frank Morey did a fine job. RHODE ISLAND 20 — NEW HAMPSHIRE 13 Tired of being on the losing end and determined to get in the winning bracket, the Rams journeyed to Durham, New Hampshire to turn the tables on the New Hampshire Wildcats. In the first period, neither team scored and it wasn’t until the second quarter when Sam Paul tossed to Dick Southwick that the first score came. The point was made on a placement and UNH led 7-0. Rhody then took the kick-off and marched into New Hampshire territory. Un- able to get the yardage for a first down the Rams were forced to punt which was returned to the Rhode Island 40. Ruskiewics scored on a 34 yard run. Maine did not make the conversion but the score still put them ahead 13-0. Rhody then took the kick-off and drove the length of the field. Rollins made the score on an off-tackle. The point after attempt failed and the score at the half was UNH 13- URI 6. In the third quarter, the Rams scored twice. The first score of this period came on a run by Donny Brown for 89 yards. The Rams tried for two more points but failed and left them behind the Wildcats by one point, 13-12. Rhody’s final score came late in the third period when they took over on the New Hampshire 49. On a pass from Pearson to Rollins the ball was moved to the Wildcats 13. Pearson finally cinched the victory on a quarterback sneak. He then passed to Charron for two more points making the score COACH HERB MAACK URI 20-UNH 13. Rhode Island played a terrific game. An alert backfield and a stubborn line proved to be very valuable in this vic- tory. There were many outstanding performances by Brown, Pearson and Charron. CONNECTICUT 36 RHODE ISLAND 8 The Huskies of UConn ruled the Rams 36-8 to net the Yankee Conference title plus sole possession for a year of the Beanpot, before a Homecoming crowd estimated at 4,500 at Meade Field. Gunning for its first undefeated season in Conference tests, UConn came from behind 6-8 at half time to smash through the fading Rhody eleven with touchdowns in each of the remaining periods. Rhode Island, the underdog, gave a brilliant perform- ance in the first half. Bill Minnerly dashed over from inside the one for the first game score after the Huskies rode downfield 57 yards. The TD-maker was unable to add the two points when stopped by the aggressive Ram, Bill Po- land. Later in the period Don Brown halted Connecticut when he picked a Harry Drivas pass out of the air at the Ram 46 and wound up on the UConn 15 to set up the only R.I. score. Under the guidance of Roger Pearson the light blues made a first down on the Huskies four and Pearson scooted over from the one off right end on the fourth down. Pearson tossed to Brown for the point. Connecticut marched 31 yards for their second score fol- lowing the kick-off with Boh Horan carrying the last five yards for six points. Again the Rams resisted the extra point. Rhode Island continued to attack and moved into enemy territory and got as far as the Connecticut 11 before Gerry D’Avolio intercepted a Pearson pass in his own end zone. When the play had ended D’Avolio had covered 73 yards, knocked out of hounds by fast traveling Pearson on the Rhode Island 27. Minnerly then scampered 14 yards for another score with Horan carrying the ball for two points to widen the margin to 20-8, going into the fourth quarter. The spent Rams were unable to stop Connecticut’s attack as Larry Day scored on a 15 yard run and received Drivas’ pass for extra points. Horan also made his second TD on a pass from Drivas in a 31 yard romp and D’Avolio rushed for points. Pearson hurled for 180 yards completing six in 16 at- tempts. Two of his bullet-like forwards covered 47 and 55 yards. The former to Jack MacDonald with the latter hit- ting Brown. Johnny Rollins’ broken field running brought the fans to their feet when he returned Norm Chaban’s kick-off 60 yards. Don Brown was also a smart runner for the Rams. A1 Lindemann, Bob Peltier, and George Smyrnios ended their collegiate careers as game Co-captains. RHODE ISLAND 20 — SPRINGFIELD 14 Rhode Island avenged the past two season’s losses to Springfield by trimming the Indians 28-14 at Pratt Field before a large Homecoming audience. The great work of the line plus a commendable performance by Pearson, who hit his receivers on seven of his first eight passes, contrib- uted to the victory. Following its loss to Brown a week before, the Rams were in from the beginning although the Indian’s George Redman crossed with the first touchdown of the game. Earle Perkins broke up the rusli points try by Skip Suth- erland. Displaying a revived spirit, the Rhody Blue took the kickoff and marched for their initial score with Don Brown going the final 19 yards with Pearson’s forward. Bill Poland grabbed the quarterback’s toss for the two points. Spring- field’s second touchdown came when Brown was hit hard and fumbled the hall. It rolled over the goal line where AI Estey was credited with the possession. Estey caught Bob Ford’s pass in the end zone to give the losers 14 points. Brown, Rollins and Poland smashed through often to rack up many of the yards gained in the first half which 206 ended with the score tied 14-14. Poland dove over from the one in Rhody’s second scoring march. The Kingstonians charged back in the third period to cover 65 yards in their drive for T.D. honors. Brown’s dash for pay dirt covered 34 yards. Jack MacDonald gathered in Pearson’s toss for the extra point. Gene Peck managed the final travel over the goal line after Boh Peltier recovered a fumble on Springfield’s 32. Peck took off the final four yards in the fourth quarter to insure victory. Outstanding for the Rams were front liners, Bob Straut, Al Lindemann, Rollie Bettez, Frank Morey, and Earle Perkins. RHODE ISLAND 52 — BRANDEIS 22 Rhody made it two straight as it downed the Brandeis Judges 52-22. The outstanding players for Rhody were Johnny Rollins, scoring two, Roger Pearson scoring one, and Bill Polland also getting two. Rhody started piling up its score early in the first period when, because of a bad kick, they had the hall on the Brandeis 34. After a series of seven plays, Polland finally scored from two yards out. Pearson then passed to Charron totaling two more points and making the score 8-0. Rhody scored again when John Rollins went into the end zone. Again Pearson passed for conversion, but the attempt was in vain and the score now tallied 14-0. In the second quarter, Brandeis came back fighting and blocked one of Rhody’s punts on the Rain’s 24. Bill De- laney scored from the right after four plays. Dougherty ran for the conversion and the score stood Rhody 14 and Brandeis 8. The next Rhody touchdown came on a 24 yard right sweep by Smyrnios, set up by a pass play from Pear- son to Smyrnios. Pearson’s pass for the extra point was good. The second half proved to be even stronger for Rhody as Bill Poland galloped for 54 yards and the Rams’ fourth touchdown in the opening minutes. The point-after attempt failed. Rollins romped to score again and put Rhody ahead 32-8. The Judges would not give up and bounced back to score two more in this third quarter. The first score came when DeSimone scored from the one yard line after the Judges put on a drive of 56 yards. They scored again when they recovered one of Polland’s blocked punts and raced into the end zone for the tally. The conversion was good, and this reduced the score to Brandeis 22-URI 32. Pearson scored in the early minutes of the fourth quarter when he scampered 46 yards for pay dirt. After this touch- down the pressure on Rhody was off, and many of the sophomores saw action. Bill Baxter was responsible for an- other touchdown when he scored from the two yard line on a quarterback sneak after a 30 yard march. The last Rhody score came when “Snooky” Traficante tossed a jump pass to Dave Dickey. This touchdown was set up by Bob La- Roche who went 45 yards with an intercepted pass. RHODE ISLAND 24 — MASSACHUSETTS 8 Rhode Island made it three in a row by topping the Redinen from the University of Massachusetts, 24-8, at Rhody’s Meade Field. Don Brown proved the thriller of the game when he streaked through UMass for 58 yards after he grabbed a lateral from Jack MacDonald, who was credited with the pass interception. Another outstanding performance was the play of the Rhode Island line which held the losers just inches short in a tremendous goal line stand late in the fourth period. The Rams also stopped UMass on their first march on their five when guard Earle Perkins broke through and re- covered a fumble on the Rhody seven. From there, Pearson generated the squad downfield with a 36 yard pitch to Jack MacDonald and alternating carries with Brown picking up 15 and 13 yards and Gene Peck plunging valuable yardage for first downs. Pearson, on an option, scored from the five yard stripe. MacDonald com- pleted Pearson’s pass to make it 8-0. The Redmen looked as if they were headed for pay dirt in the third quarter when Gerry Walls intercepted a Pear- son pass on his 37 from where they went downfield to the R.I. 12 when the Rams resisted and Perkins again recov- ered a fumbled pitchout on the 31. Brown of the Rams had his feature romp in the third period, but had a 40 yard scoring interception nullified early in the game. High winds prevented a UMass kick from traveling far- ther than their 27 line, from where Rhody made good their third touchdown after Johnny Rollins ran for 10, George Smyrnios followed for 11 and Peck crossed the broad stripe in two plunges from the four. Pearson ran the point after. Following the fourth R.I. score, UMass took the kickoff and scored four plays later. Bill Maxwell went to the air and hit Walls, who was in the open. Walls ran 49 yards for six points. Reynolds made it 8 points on a run. This was the sixth straight win for Rhody in this series. BROWN 47 — RHODE ISLAND 6 Outmanned and outweighed, the URI eleven couldn’t match the Bruins. Rhode Island ran into trouble early with the Bears, Frank Finney setting up the first charge on a fumble recovery at the Rhody 29 and then pranced seven i __ — — a SCO re. Finney added the point after on a slice through. Ray Barry capped a long march with a two yard plunge and Dick Beland made good a boot for another point. Be- fore the first half ended, Barry again scored from the four, and Charlie Olibri took Finney’s pass to widen the margin. John Phipps ended an 85 yard march when he received Mick Pannes pass, good for 15 yards. In the next play Pannes ran for the point after. The Rams played their hearts out against steep odds. Backs John Rollins and Don Brown were completely stopped and the Bruin forwards tore holes consistently in the Ram’s first line of defense. The line-backing and defending by Bill Poland and Earle Perkins plus hard charging Rollie Bettez at center, were some of the brighter contributions for URL Don Brown saved a shutout when he ran 15 yards on a pass play from Pearson in the final period. Brown’s Bill Cronin scored in the third on a 15 yard run with Finney’s toss. Beland ran for the points after. Jack McTigue concluded the scoring in the fourth when he car- ried off tackle for the last touchdown. Paul Choquette pushed through for the two points. The Bruin’s depth totaled 52 players as Brown won its 2 07 40th game in the 44 year rivalry. CROSS COUNTRY Cushmac. G.; McElroy, J.; Macintosh, T.; French, E. Row 2: Coach; Brown, D.; Petitpas, R.; Warren, R.; Wilson, F. 5 4 . c= CROSS COUNTRY Due to injuries to captain Tom McIntosh, Rhode Island’s cross country team went winless in six dual meets this year. George Cushmac and Ed French were tops in a losing cause. Coach Tom Russell’s forces were comprised of Tom McIntosh, George Cushmac, Ed French, Frank McElroy, Frank Wilson, Wayne Nordquist, Nason Henry, Bob Warren, Dale Brown, and Dick Petitpas. In their first meet in early September, U.R.I. bowed to Fordham. Cushmac, finishing sixth, was top man for Rhody. In the following two meets with Springfield and New Hampshire, Cushmac again led the U.R.I. harriers home finishing second and fifth respectively. Against P.C. and Brown, Ed French took over the front running position for Rhode Island, placing second and fifth, while at UConn, Cushmac, in third place was tops. The Yankee Conference Championship, held this year at UMass, found Rhody in fifth place. Cushmac again led the Rams home placing fourteenth. In the New Englands, R.I. finished tenth with French taking the leading roll. The Freshmen team, however, was undefeated in dual meets. They placed third in the New Englands. Karl Steimle was their top runner for the season. FRESHMAN TEAM Row 1: DeLucia, T.; Clark, G.; Dunn, D. Row 2: Steimle K.- Lees, D.; Fishburn, W.; Russell, T., Coach. BASKETBALL The University of Rhode Island’s progressive return to the scene of basketball prominence is in its second rebuilding year under the astute and capable Ernest Calverly. Faced with a major building problem since his inaugural as varsity mentor at U.R.I., the former All-American ace of the forties has undaunt- edly attempted to enhance the basketball fortunes of the Univer- sity amidst problems that would probably have perplexed the immortal Keaney. Building a basketball team capable of competing in today’s rapid paced collegiate competition is virtually impossible with a squa d that is completely void of the talent and experience of a senior factor. In such a situation, further complicated by the premature departure of several solid court performers, Coach Calverley has endeavored to instill his basketball know-how and determination into a courageous and willing young team and has obtained some encouraging and often glamorous results. His win and loss record is respectable although unimpressive, but in the near future he assuredly will produce quintets characterized by his spirit, inspired by his love of the game and truly repre- sentative of the fine U.R.I. basketball tradition. At this point, credit must be given to the amiable Bill Baird who has worked harmoniously and enthusiastically alongside of Coach Calverley for the past two years. Assistant Coach Baird has faithfully and unselfishly carried out the many unseen and thankless tasks that are so essential in fostering a successful ven- ture on the collegiate athletic scene. In the season’s opener Tom Harrington led the Rams to an easy 84-43 victory over the Quonset Flyers. Captain Tom regis- tered 25 points and sophomores Harry Edmonds and Barry Multer combined for 28. Row 1: Bourgery, R.; Caswell, P. ; Edmonds, H.; Boyle, A.; An- derson. J. Row 2: Baird, W., Coach; Lamb, D.; Holland, W. ; Dav- enport, D.; Hirsch, A.; Multer, B.; Harrington, T.; Joyce, J.; Calverly, E., Head Coach. and Coach Ernie Calverly On the following evening Rhody played host to the high-rated Eagles of Boston College. B.C. won the nip and tuck battle 67-80, with a late splurge over the undermanned forces of U.R.I. Captain Harrington contributed 28 points and Harry Edmonds 17 in the losing cause. Fordham University romped to an easy 56-86 victory over Rhody despite Barry Multers 27 markers. At Providence Harry Edmonds put on a bril- liant ball handling and shooting display in steer- ing the Blue and White to a 65-52 win over Brown University. The extraordinary rebound- ing of Don Brown was a prime factor in nhody’s first intrastate victory. In a tremendous team effort U.R.I. stormed from behind to take a well deserved 80-65 vic- tory from New Hampshire. Multer, Edmonds and Jack Anderson kept the Rams in contention until Capt. Harrington broke the game wide open with a sparkling shooting display in the second half. U.R.I. split two hotly contested games on suc- cessive nights at Burlington, Vt. The five Rhody regulars, Harrington, Multer, Edmonds, Brown and Holland all hit double figures in the Rams 84-77 victory on Friday night. The Catamounts of Vermont wrested a closely disputed win on the following day, 76-77. Sophomore Harry Ed- munds tallied 44 points and Tom Harrington 40 in the two day set. Highly rated Holy Cross ran roughshod over the hapless Rams at Keaney Gym, 62-102. Jack Anderson and Barry Multer provided the only offensive threat against the crusaders. On January 10, Northeastern University won a loosely played game at Boston, 61-77. Rhody lost the game at the foul line as both teams regis- tered a like number of field goals. Multer and Edmonds collaborated for 29 points. In their fourth Yankee Conference tussle Cap- tain Harrington’s sparkling 37 point effort sty- mied a fine team effort by Maine, as Rhody won their fifth game in ten starts. Hirsch’s rebound- ing and hustle spirited the 83-78 victory. Rhody’s year long lack of height was further accented by the injury to ace rebounder Donnie Brown, which sidelined him for the season. Springfield College completely dominated both boards as they trounced the weary Rams 72-102. Capt. Harrington and Multer showed the only offensive punch, connecting for 42 points. On February 4, Harrington rewrote the U.R.I. record book with a thrilling 50 point perform- ance, as the Rams won the freewheeling contest from Brandeis University 119-106. Capt. Har- rington broke the 44 point Keaney Gym record of Adrian Chrust and the alltime school record of 48 points set by Ernie Calverly in 1943. Some- what overshadowed was the 35 point effort by Barry Multer. Against Providence College, U.R.I. was sub- dued by a 59-71 count in a thriller at P.C.’s Homecoming, with Harrington providing the scoring. The Rams matched the Friars for forty minutes of play but faltered in overtime, victim of the sensational play of potential All-American John Egan. Jack Anderson and Bill Holland turned in a tremendous performance against their taller adversaries, but the all-out effort of the team fell short. In a Yankee Conference thriller in Keaney Gym, Captain Tom Harrington’s scoring talent paced the Rams to their seventh win of the sea- son, beating U Mass 83-82. The lanky junior tal- lied 34 points in the close tilt that was tied no less than nineteen times. Barry Multer bombed in 23 points from the outside, teaming with Har- rington in bringing the crowd to their feet throughout the battle. 211 BASEBALL The 1958 edition of University of Rhode Island Baseball failed to achieve preseason expectations and although displaying much ability and determination finished the schedule with a subpar record. The over- all record of six wins and ten losses was indeed an ebb for the incomparable William Beck, who had coached Ram Nines to two consecutive state championships in 1956 and ’57. In Yankee Conference play, the sopho- more studded team placed fifth with a three and six record. Rhody began with its annual opening day victory over the Quonset Flyers, as they put on a devastating offense while winning 21 to 5. Bob Peltier’s four hits paced the twenty hit attack, while Roger Pearson’s three hits drove in four runs. John Garafolo, Jim Wilcox, Tony Verdi, and Bobby Wells each connected for a brace of hits. Peltier and Garafolo each homered in the onslaught and Larry Cargill received credit for. the win in a relief role. On April 17, a strong Springfield team succumbed to another display of Ram power at the plate. The fiery Jake Jacome’s three hits and Rog Pearson’s two singles sparked the 9 to 6 win that was highlighted by pinch hitter Sal Augeri’s three run homer. Winning pitcher Tony Rao drove home the clinching run with a booming triple in the sixth. Springfield rallied for three runs in the eighth but Tom Harrington’s relief work stymied all further scoring. The Ram win streak came to an abrupt halt as the UConn Huskies posted a 13 to 2 victory at Kingston. Work-horse Dick Pisaturo, starting his third consecu- tive game, absorbed the loss while Rhody was limited to five hits. Sophomore right hander Tony Rao lost a heart- breaker to Brown 3 to 2, at Brown Field. Rao hurled a three hitter and struck out nine, but Brown scored three unearned runs on two walks, two errors, and three stolen bases. Rhody’s two runs came in the sev- enth on singles by Peltier and Verdi and a double by Bob Humphrey. Rhody stranded the tying run on third in both the eighth and ninth innings. At Providence College, Rhody suffered its third de- feat 8 to 5. Losing hurler Larry Cargill deserved a better fate as P.C. collected three unearned runs on two Ram miscues. Dave Como collected two hits and Howie Levine smacked a two run double in the seventh. The University of Maine took two from Rhody on consecutive days at Kingston. The Black Bears jumped off to a five run lead in the first two innings and coasted on to a 6 to 2 win. Roger Pearson and Bob Peltier each singled and scored in the eighth. Bob Humphrey pitched nearly eight innings in relief while giving up only one run. The following day Dan Dearborn pitched the only shutout of the year over URI as Maine won 3 to 0. Dick Pisaturo hurled eight complete innings and gave up but one earned run. Pearson, Verdi, and Bob Man- cini collected the three Ram hits. On the first of May, Rhody blew a four run lead and lost to UMass 8 to 6 at Amherst. The Blue and White collected all six runs in the third inning; four of them on Dave Como’s grand slam homer. Mass scored four runs on two hits to overcome the Ram lead in the seventh, and hand R.I. its sixth straight defeat. Row 1: Como, D.; Verdi, T.; Warren, J.; Jacome, J.; Pisaturo, R.; Humphrey, R.; Peltier, R.; Wells, R. Row 2: Rao, T.; Carr, R.; Augeri, S.; Tryhubsack, J.; DiAmbra, T.; Wilcox, J.; Har- rington, T.; Beck, W., Coach. Row 3: Pearson, R.; Capalbo, J.; Garafolo, J.; Johnson, P.; McCormick, J.; Mancini, R. Dick Pisaturo pitched the Beckmen to their third victory of the season in a ten inning game at Vermont. John Garafolo and Dave Como collaborated for the winning run in the top of the tenth, and Rao came on in the bottom half to strand runners on second and third by retiring the side in order. The alert Garafolo had two hits and scored three runs while Como singled thrice. Big Tom Harrington threw a five hitter the follow- ing afternoon and Rhody had its second victory over Vermont, 3 to 1. In going the route, Harrington struck out eight and did not allow an earned run. Tony Verdi’s two run double provided the winning markers in the seventh. The next home engagement was won by Brown 7 to 4 as Dave Manson gained his second verdict of the year over Rhody on three unearned runs. John Gara- folo doubled and tripled driving in two runs and Tony Verdi singled twice in the losing cause. Northeastern took the Rams easily at Boston with a seven run uprising in the middle innings. Jimmy Warren had three hits, one a lead off homer in the first inning in the 8 to 3 loss. Harrington absorbed the brunt of the N.U. attack and was charged with the defeat. The return match with UMass again found Rhody on the short end; this time 6 to 4. Dick Pisaturo started his fifth game of the season and received the loss. John Garafolo belted a three run homer in the third inning but Rhody couldn’t hold the lead. At the close of the season, Garafolo signed a professional contract with the Milwaukee Braves. In the first game of a double header at Durham, N.H., Tom Harrington hurled his second five hitter of the season as URI chalked up its fifth win of the season 2 to 1. Jim Warren doubled opening the sixth and Garafolo singled him home. Garafolo moved to third on a walk and a sacrifice and scored the winning run on Jim Wilcox’s timely single. In the nightcap, New Hampshire reversed the score and beat Tony Rao 2 to 1. Billy Beck’s boys could garner only five hits, Rao getting two, and committed three errors allowing the first N.H. run to score. The season ended on a happy note as URI defeated Providence College 9 to 6 at Kingston. Tony Verdi’s triple highlighted the second inning when the Rams sent twelve men to the plate and scored eight runs before P.C. could recover. Bob Peltier singled and doubled and Joe Mancini, who missed most of the season with a broken hand, homered. Tony Rao re- lieved Harrington in the fourth and received credit for the win. The 1958 season spelled finis to senior outfielder Jim Warren and Pitcher Dick Pisaturo, who wore the Blue and White spangles of URI as well as the heroes of yesteryear. Sophomore John Garafolo also closed out a brief but often brilliant collegiate career to join the Milwaukee franchise. The 1958 team gave their all for Rhody and were a credit to themselves, their coach and the University. Row 1: Neigle, J.; Lisa, C.; Hoffer, M.: Broomfield, S.; Kojian, S. Row 2: Whatley, R., Asst.

Thus far, the U.R.I. mile relay team enjoyed its best season since Tom Russell has been at the helm. The quartet opened its season in Boston Garden at the annual Knights of Columbus meet and came home a winner by 30 yards over Boston U., Boston C., and Bates. The following week, Jan. 31, the Rams faced a real stiff test as they flew to Washington to appear in the Washington Star Games. Here they drew the best opposition the Middle Atlantic States could offer and once again came home a winner over Catholic U., Westchester College, Seton Hall and a good Maryland team. With two straight wins, Tom Russell’s squad headed into Madison Square Garden for its first of four appearances in the garden. That evening they were matched with Holy Cross, St. John’s, and N.Y.U., all previously unbeaten, and Bates. Rhody crossed the line ahead of Holy Cross, St. John’s and N.Y.U., but ran second to Bates, a team they had previously beaten in Boston Garden. From Madison Square Garden, the Rhody quar- FRED LAKEWAY GEORGE CALISE 214 L. to R.: Lisa, C.; McAloon, V.; Russell, T., Coach; Car- ter, T.; Lakeway, F. tet went up to Boston to participate in the annual B.A.A. Games for the Yankee Conference Championship. Every Conference school was entered but Vermont and once again R.I. was victorious. This time they had in addition to winning the Conference Crown eclipsed more than two full seconds off the Yankee Conference record for the mile-relay run. An interesting sidelight to this team’s success is that it began its season with only one regular quarter-miler. Vin McAloon became all-Rhode Island 440 yard selection. Theodore Carter, who had never raced before coming to U.R.I., was the second member of the Rhody quartet, while the other two members were two converted sprinters, Fred Lakeway, New England sprint champion, and Carl Lisa former all-Rhode Island selection in the 220 yard dash. R.I. looks forward to many more successful seasons. The team will be well represented in the next three seasons with both Lisa and McAloon as sophomores, and such promising freshmen as Bob Brennan, Karl Steimle, and George Clark. TRACK GOLF With the loss of Paul Butler and a few other graduati ng seniors, the golf team faced a major rebuilding program last year. Coach John Chironna who replaced Paul Cieurzo last year was confronted with a team composed mostly of inexperienced players with no competition background. With the return of Archie Boulet, Harry Hampson, and Murray Zaretsky and the addition of sophomore Bob Fitta, this team now has the experience and the ability to do an excellent job. Under the guidance of Coach Tootell, the tennis team did a creditable job consid- ering the fact that it was composed mostly of juniors and sophomores who were inex- perienced. Coach Tootell called his tennis candi- dates in the Fall and worked them on the tennis courts near the gym. With the com- ing of bad weather, play was resumed in- doors and the players have been working- out every afternoon. With the return of experienced players, as Tucker Welch, Dick Haut and Bob Carl- son, plus tbe addition of Frank Cain from last year’s freshman team, this year’s team should do an excellent job.

Row 2: Dummer, R.; Webber, D.; Dziok, T. ; Phillips, H.; Winiarski, P. ; Thorpe, T. RIFLE ASSOCIATION The 1958-59 Rifle Team season was begun with a great deal of expectation. The team was coached by M Sgt. Hartfo rd. This year’s varsity captain was Homer Leighton. Returning Varsity shooters were last season’s co-captains, Elton Cohen and Taylor Cook, as well as Homer Leighton, Pete Winiarski, and Fred Goodrich. These men plus Robert Anson, Dave Webber, Bob Mooza, and Paul Dutra up from the fresh- men team, gave the depth that was lacking in the preceding season. The freshmen rifle team showed a great deal of potential. The leading scorers were T. Dziok, B. Saunders, R. Dummer, P. Ab- brust, and S. Edwards. These men also fire for the R.O.T.C. Rifle Team. The varsity team fires in the Southern Division of the N.E.C. R.L. which includes Providence College, Coast Guard Academy, University of Connecticut, Boston College, University of Massa- chusetts, Boston University, Brown University, and Worcester Poly Tech. It also participates in the Yankee Conference Tourna- ment and the Coast Guard Invitational which includes such teams as Saint John’s, West Point, Harvard, University of Mary- land, M.I.T., and Villanova. The season is closed with the Na- tional Rifle Association Collegiate Championship. In the match Rhode Island competes against all the college rifle teams in the country. 1957-1958 SCORES Rhode Island Opponents 1368 Coast Guard Academy 1379 1368 Providence College 1391 1368 Connecticut 1374 1368 Boston College 1360 1362 Massachusetts 1350 1362 Boston University 1383 1363 Brown 1354 1375 Worcester Poly Tech 1396 217 INTRAMURAL SPORTS Another successful intramural season came to a close with Sigma Chi winning its second straight All Sports Trophy. After a poor start in football and cross-country, Sigma Chi came on strong to win the trophy with 583.5 points to Sigma Nu’s 563.5. Sigma Chi also won the Intramural and Intercollegiate par- ticipation trophy with 6000 points, followed closely bv Theta Chi with 5400. Tau Kappa Epsilon and Sigma Alpha Epsilon were tie for third with 4700 points. September found the boys down under the spotlights at Meade Field playing touch football. Sigma Nu won the touch football crown with the help of the tremendous passing of Skip Whidden. They were followed closely by Tau Kappa Epsilon. Sigma Chi began their march for the crown by defeating Bressler Hall in the cross-country meet. The winter saw Sigma Alpha Epsilon capture the basketball crown. They picked up 200 points with the help of the high scoring efforts of Gabby Warren. Sigma Chi was a close second. Sigma Chi increased their lead with a victory in foul-shooting. Lambda Chi Alpha and Bressler Hall followed close behind. Sigma Nu won two close victories in tennis and horseshoes. They were followed closely by Sigma Chi and Sigma Alpha Epsilon respectively. In the wrestling division. Beta Psi Alpha took the champion- ship. In the softball competition. Phi Mu Delta, led by Bill Fall’s pitching, came on strong to defeat Sigma Chi in the final by a score of 16-2, bringing to a close a very successful and enjoyable intramural season.

RHODE ISLAND CLUB 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 Uni- versity. In the past, the club has taken part in many campus activities, the feature of which was the annual Spring Banquet. At the close of each school year, honorary keys are presented to outstanding members. 219 Row 1: Johnson, E.; Sullivan, B., Sec.-Trcas.; Berghman, J-, Capt.; Fredette, N., Co-Capt.; Norton, B.

CHEERLEADERS Rhody can always rely on the spirit and pep of its cheerleaders to encour- age a victory. At rallies, football games, or basketball games the cheerleaders are out in front of the crowd with a cheer whether Rhody is winning or losing. This year the cheerleaders worked out many different routines. The use of a trampoline and a set of ladders was an exciting innovation this year. Mr. Carl Slader coached and trained the cheerleading squad in these skills. WOMEN ' S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The Women’s Athletic Association is one of the few single campus activities offering a vari- ety of opportunities for the U.R.I. coed. In con- nection with women’s sports the W.A.A. awards points to individuals participating in intramu- rals and club sports. Upon accumulation of the required number of points a shield, key, or blazer is awarded. Trophies are also awarded to the winners of intramural tourneys. Aside from conducting the women’s athletic program, the W.A.A. sponsers co-recreation sports, a door decorating contest, a money-mak- ing project, Orchesis, and annual Fall picnic, and a Spring banquet. Besides conducting this program the W.A.A. also offers a wealth of opportunities within the council. Interested women can hold such diver- sified positions as photographer, Beacon sports editor, publicity chairman, head sports manager, or social chairman. How many other organiza- tions boast such a diversified program for its members? EVERY WOMAN STUDENT is a MEMBER of W.A.A. The Association has a place of interest for all.

FIELD HOCKEY Freshman girls were introduced to field hockey early in the semester with a “model” game played by more experienced upper-class girls. An introduction was given by Helena Koechling, hockey manager. During the game the duties of each player and some of the plays were outlined by “Chip” Santagata. This well-played exhibi- tion was attended by an enthusiastic group of 200 . Hockey club activities offered ample oppor- tunity for development and practice of new skills, as well as the fun and excitement of com- petition. The Rhody team was host to the Provi- dence hockey team for a hard-fought game. The Providence team, recruiting new members, in- vited Rhody to practice with them during the season. An All College Sports Day held at Wel- lesley was attended by 12 team members. There the Rhody team met with girls from other New England colleges and participated in a lively Round Robin tournament. Close games and tense moments highlighted the inter-house double elimination tournament this year. Scheduling during the season was made difficult by poor weather and the change from daylight savings to standard time. The final game, a battle between Alpha Chi Omega and Chi Omega, was finished in total darkness, with Chi Omega victorious. Row 1: Chin, S.; Donnelly, B.; Santagata, L.; English, M. Row 2: Whaley J.; Randall, J.; Lambertson, B.; Dollar, G.; Clough, P.; Crooker, J., Adv. BASKETBALL As winter approached, anxiety and excitement swept over Lippitt Hall as the Intramural basketball season began to get under way. It continued until undefeated Delta Zeta triumphed in the double elimination tournament. Immediately after the close of Intramural basketball, the “pros” took over the gym. They did a good job, too, when they played teams from Salve Regina, Bridgewater State Teacher’s College and the University of Connecticut. And then there was U.R.I.’s own playday at Keaney Gymnasium. After lunch at Butterfield Hall, the girls, from such colleges as Pembroke, Wheaton, Bouve, and Clark University, spent the day on the basketball court. TENNIS The ever-popular game of tennis is familiar to all at Rhody and is enjoyed by experts and beginners alike. Even those who at first miss every ball become proficient players after a little practice. The crowds at the courts each spring day until well after sunset is evidence of the game’s popularity on our campus. Last Spring the women’s tennis team met weekly to improve their back- hands, serves, and knowledge of the finer points of the game. An inter-house tourney was played by a singles player and a doubles-team from each women’s housing unit. After several thrilling matches, the trophy, offered for the first time, was captured by an excellent team from Alpha Chi Omega. L. to R.: Lambertson, B.; Chin, S.; Whaley, J. ARCHERY Archery is rapidly gaining popularity as a spring sport’s activity for the Rhody women as the club gains more members each year. This game of skil , enioved bv all who participate, offers each individual a chance for personal achievement and satisfaction. In addition to playing with the club, Rhody women may elect archery as their spring class activity. SOFTBALL Shouts of “Batter up,” the crack of a hat, and the cheers of the spectators all add to the excitement of a women’s softball game. Perhaps because of the warm weather, spectators, both men and women, turn out to cheer their favor- ite team to victory. Encouraged by teammates and side-line coaches, many players surprise even themselves with their ability. Tbe softball club practiced every week during the Spring to prepare for competition. Games were played against more experienced teams from UConn and New Haven State Teachers College. An enthusiastic team from each house entered the softball tournament last year. As usual, the competition for the prized trophy was keen. In the final game, the hard hitting Alpha Chi Omega team won the trophy by defeating Eleanor Roosevelt Hall in an exciting extra- inning game. L. to R.: English, M.; Santagata, L. BADMINTON As in past years, the arrival of the Badminton Club met with enthusiastic approval. The first game, and varsity highlight of the season, was the basketball- badminton play day at Keaney and Lippitt gyms February 14. Various colleges in New England participated in the round-robin type tourney and the result was the best playday to date. Individual practice at Lippitt continued into March and the skill which developed made all the effort seem worthwhile. The sport terminated after games with Pembroke, Providence-Barrington Bible College, and Salve Regina. CO-RECREATIONAL SPORTS Co-Rec Sports, becoming increasingly popular on the URI campus, enjoyed greater participation this year with the number of teams competing more than in previous years. The successful union of both male and female in the world of sports has attracted many individuals. You would be surprised how athletic Sally Jones becomes when she finds out her sorority is playing with Zeta Zeta Fratern ity in the volleyball tournament. The same applies to Bob Smith when he hears about the game with Iota Kappa Sorority. In addition to a mixed doubles tournament of badminton in which there were two leagues with seven teams in each, there was a double elimination Co-Rec volleyball tournament. As spring approached, the male participants were again surprised at the athletic ability of the women on campus. This time it came when the women picked up a baseball bat in the baseball elimination consola- tion tournament. VOLLEYBALL You’ll find the tall girls in position to “spike” at the net and a strong back line when the volleyball season rolls around. In ad- dition to the cries of “watch out, I’ve got it” echoing from the different girls on the team, you can also hear the referee calling “side out” or “point” from the sidelines. Volleyball is one of the most popular sports among the women for it allows the greatest number of girls to participate. The house games are played in a double round elimination tourna- ment permitting each team to play at least two games and this year an especially exciting and tense tournament was seen. RIFLE TEAM The rifle team is affiliated with the National Rifle Association and through this organization our team has fired many postal matches, and in person matches with other colleges and uni- versities. Dead eye aim and a steady trigger finger is required of a com- petent rifleman. Thus practice starts in the Fall and continues until the end of the season with each girl spending a part of each week shooting. URI can certainly boast of its many Annie Oakleys.
