It has been said that human activity is a mirror which gives back accurate images of men. The activity of this man in the spiritual, intellectual and athletic facets of human life have endowed the environment of the University with a priceless heritage. His unselfish efforts for twenty six years on the URI faculty helped guide thou- sands of young Americans, that were privileged to have Kirn as an instructor, a coach, or a friend. Indeed it is an honor to have had such an honorable and respected man guiding our school athletic teams and those who knew him and worked with him can al- ready see the void left by his retirement. His determination, courage, and desire to win that he instilled in all his players made them and the University more rich. He is a man that gave much to URI, its students and its athletic teams, and in doing so wrote an incomparable chapter into the school’s history. To you Billy Beck, do we make this humble gesture in dedicating the i960 Grist, for your loyal devotion to URI and the character and personality that your name will mirror always as part of the University of Rhode Island. 5 On being told, four years ago, that the Class of i960 had chosen me to be its academic adviser, I felt an awe- some burden descend upon me: I envisioned myself handing out, Solomon-like, counsel and solace to an end- less number of you afflicted with psychic, amatory, gastric, academic, and heavens knows what other prob- lems of overwhelming dimensions. Such a task would require superhuman resources of mind and heart, and why then, I wondered, had you chosen one so obviously unequipped and green that he still has trouble differen- tiating himself from the Freshman. For we came to this University together. But it occurs to me now that half- consciously you may have selected a faculty member who appeared as bewildered as yourselves. Since then, of course, we have all become older and wiser. But perhaps the bargain has been too one-sided in that I learned from you and your sober spirit of in- dependence, whereas you have merely had your class funds protected against embezzlement, if not against foolish expenditures. On the other hand, there may be a certain symbolic significance in the fact that you now go forth into the world prepared to leave your indelible mark on it, while I stay behind. How then should I pre- sume to add my Parthian shot of say advice to those that will inevitably be inflicted upon you, so that, bearing the ritual scars—milder than those of a former age—, you can be released into the great outdoors? But since your kind editor has given me permission, I cannot re- sist the impulse to fire off at least a parting volley. Kven so, it is in the form of a hope rather than an in- junction: may the University have provi ded you nor only with the skills and knowledge needed to part- icipate in the solemn ritual of adult existence, but also with that true expansion of the intellect and imagina- tion which has been envisaged as the final goal of a university education. I do not even think— oh heresy ! that it matters so much whether in later life you are happy or not: only preserve the magnanimity, largeness of spirit and outlook, which is the mark of the truly ed- ucated. Remember, as one wise New Englander put it, that man’s capacities have never been measured. With that sense of the endless possibilities of human existence, we can engage in life joyously: without it we fail our- selves and the society around us. But pretense to wisdom, as Socrates said, is the worst of follies, though he was also the first to see that we begin to be wise when we realize our own foolishness. Therfore, go forth prudently, magnanimously, but do not hesitate to be at times just a little foolish, With the very best wishes of your ‘Class Adviser’ Dr. Richard T.

I .1 TO THE CLASS OF i960 My congratulations to the members of the Class of i960 upon the completion of your undergraduate work at URI. You have been students at the University during one of the most exciting periods, certainly the most significant one, in its history. At no previous time has there been such an expansion of the physical facilities on campus. But more important, the academic program has been broadened and strengthened, until now at the time of your graduation, your alma mater has become a true university. You have shared in the intellectual ferment this transition has occasioned, and you leave the campus knowing that a great future is assured for URL I hope that you will cherish your alma mater even more warmly, that you will support her generously and loyally, and that you will be increasingly proud of the institution which has provided you with the education so necessary to your success and happiness. You are fortunate to be graduating at this time, far more so than I was, when I received my bachelor’s degree just thirty years ago. Never before has the world had such need of trained intelligence, of broad understanding and specialized compe- tence, of dedication to the ideal of free minds in a free society. We hope that your education at URI has helped you lay the foundation of these qualities, and that you will build upon that foundation a life of service to your community, to your coun- try, and to your fellowmen everywhere. In such services lies life’s richest satisfac- tions; and in our precarious world, in such service may indeed rest man’s survival. My best wishes go with you. No matter where you go or what you do, the Kings- ton campus is your educational home. We hope we can welcome you back to it often. Francis H. Horn President December 17, 1959 “Now understand me well — it is provided in the essence of things that from any fruition of success, no matter what, shall come something to make a greater strug- gle necessary.” — Walt Whitman This admonition, couched in different phrases, has been given to us time and time time again by poets, by philosophers, by statesmen, by historians. Old though it may be in concept, it continues to bring a challenge not to be ignored in our day. You graduates of the University of Rhode Island bask in the brilliant and glori- ous light of success. You have struggled to achievement and in the struggle you have grown in stature, both intellectually and spiritually, and have arrived at Com- mencement Day fully aware that this is the commencement — and only that — of a life of fulfillment. I call your attention to the struggle ahead with no intention of casting a shadow. Rather, I send my message to you with somewhat of a feeling of envy, for even the obstacles in your path will present a challenge that is thrilling, and overcoming them will make possible a future of greatness unlimited. If I were given some magical power to bestow upon you a gift that more than any other would help you face the challenge of tomorrow, I think I would ask for you the gift of curiosity. The world in which we live is not for the complacent. Progress is not born of satisfaction. Answers find no fertile soil in the unquestioning mind. Graduates of i960, meet the challenge that is before you. Meet it with awareness, meet it with courage, meet it with curiosity, and may God be with you all along the road.

September 9th a day which we will long remember — 689 strong we began our four year career on the University of Rhode Island campus — Freshman Week — “You’re in Group C, What’s a sorority forum, How do you fill out these registration forms?” — these were commonly heard questions during our initiation into life on the campus. After all this came — classes — and with the advent of classes we added a new word to our vocabulary — cut. Thirty-two new faculty members were appointed in order to aid us in our search for knowledge. Freshmen Traditions were no longer in effect and so we did not have to face the dreaded Vigilante Court. Then came our first football game as we marched to Meade Field complete with our ever-present beanies; Rhody emerged the victor, beating the Northeastern Huskies 13-12. Our only other victory that season was over the U Mass Redmen 34-13- We managed to hold Brown until the last period — then the bottom fell out. 20 ANTHONY D.

New treat at the Student Union — “Ramburger” introduced. However, you had to be quick and eat it before “Sadler” arrived. Bond issue of 55 , 000,000 very much in the news — Referendum rallies — “Re- member November” — We were all urged to help persuade the citizens of the state to vote “yes.” We elected Skip Finizio prexy of the class — Carol Cole, veep— Nancy Gordon as secretary — Charlie Randall, social chairman and Kenneth Perlow, treasurer. Our first Aggie Bawl and we were very proud as Pat Martineau, a member of our class was crowned queen of this dance. Sorority bids came out on October 20 th and we were very happy and excited to march around campus with our brand new sorority blazers and pledge pins prom- inently displayed. IFC was the sponsor of the first Bachelor’s Ball — Pete Kohlsatt became Rhody’s first “Most Eligible Bachelor.” Many sighs of relief as our Referendum was approved. Mayoralty Campaign was staged, but quickly shot down as it was pretty uncon- trolled. Golden Budda, Alley Kahn, Humphrey, Elegante (a lady mayor? ? ?), Mighty Moe Young — This campaign proved to be the END for the Mayor of Kingston. GERALD M. BRENNER IRA S.

Water fight on Lower College Road — the Gaza Strip was crossed. Time for pre- registration so soon ? Time rolled around for a much needed rest — Christmas vacation was upon us — Then, too soon, back for finals — our numbers had already begun to dwindle. Beacon Staff changed — Greek World replaced Pipeline. Sorority elections held, but we were still lowly pledges. A Nite to Forget officially opened second semester. CARMINE J.

SACHEMS, SENATE, AND BEACON fought to revive Freshman Traditions. MERC Week — Donnelly’s, Giros, Neptune — at the expense of the co-ed’s too! Male members of the class thought that it should have lasted much longer.

As sophomores, we played the dual role of guiding and then harassing the Fresh- men — “Where’s that Beanie?” Many welcome back parties as we renewed old ac- quaintances and moved into our respective housing units. Freshmen Traditions had been reinstated and once again Beanies dotted the cam- pus. SENATE and SACHEMS preached and attempted to help the Frosh struggle through the first week.

First Greek Week at URI — Fraternity Sing — Theta Chi taking the honors. Herb Pomeroy presents Jazz Concert — Fred Katzenstein -“Most Eligible Bach- elor.” Pan Hel and IFC fostered relations. WSGA Career Day — something new at U.R.I. New officers elected — Skip Finizio and Nancy Gordon re-elected as president and secretary — Patti Rainone, V. P. — Warren Ferriter, treasurer and Guido Di Biasio as social chairman. Asiatic Flu created havoc on the campus — house after house hit just as mid- semesters did same. Infirmary could offer “Standing room only.” Sputnik became the leading topic of conversation. Time for pre-registration — again ! Happy Hour and Friday afternoon club established at B.V. Home again for Christmas — time for many pinnings and engagements. Bowling alleys installed in Union — a good excuse for spending more time in the “lower regions.” Faculty evaluation forms released — our turn to be the judges. Social season opened after everyone had recovered from exam-itis. ROBERT I. GLOVIER Chemical Engineering Phi Kappa Theta 39 Kersey Rd. Peace Dale, R. I.

Mary Lou Brashears named queen of the Soph Hop against the background of a winter wonderland. Fraternity bids given out followed shortly by Spring costume dances. Dr. Francis Horn named sixth President of U.R.I. after extensive search by facul- ty committee. The question uppermost in our minds was — “What will he be like?” TKE’s hearse became a familiar sight around campus with Freckles in the seat of honor. We caught the “Beach days fever” and spent many days on Narragansett’s sunny shores — with our books close at hand, of course. Ray Eberle was featured at the Junior Prom which was an affair that many of us enjoyed. Senior Week — a few of us were thrilled to be invited. We returned as high and mighty juniors feeling very happy, looking sun-tanned and reminiscing about summer adventures and escapades. Dr. Horn, our new president, welcomed the 814 members of the Freshman Class and their parents to the campus. ROBERT G. HENDERSON DANIEL J.

Rameses VI, Rhody’s new mascot, made his official debut at the URI-North- eastern game — Rameses not much help as URI is downed 26-6. Sorority rushing got underway early with informal parties. Frosh entertained amidst Chinese gongs, pizza, highland flings, and milkmaids. New women’s residence halls opened — named Hutchinson and Peck — “Just like living in the Waldorf.” Our contribution to medicine — 17 junior nurses capped in traditional ceremony. You were suddenly “out of it” unless you could twirl a hula hoop. Athletic skill was also measured by how many times you could catch a “Frisbee.” We saw history being made on October 15th, as Dr. Francis H. Horn was inau- gurated as the sixth president of U.R.I. We also had the opportunity to see many notables march in the academic procession. Fines before and after holidays were suspended on a trial basis. The responsibility for making this suspension a reality depended on the students. ROBERT W. KEIGHLEY Mathematics Phi Kappa Theta 15 Barber Circle Rumford, R. I. THOMAS A.

Finizio again heads class. Ann Haseotes served as secretary, Gail Austin, V. P., Charles Donovan, treasurer and Guido Di Biasio was re-elected as social chairman. Rhody tied for second place in the Yankee Conference race after 24-8 victory over Massachusetts. Twenty-eight students elected to “Who’s Who” — six juniors were among those selected. WRIl’ covers National Elections. Returns broadcast direct to lounge of Student Union — Ike again emerges victorious with Del Sesto moving into the governor’s spot. “Dirty Work at the Crossroads” well received by campus audience. Homecoming- and again the rains came down — Jane Ann Mairs crowned queen — Alpha Chi, (Sleigh the Huskies) and Phi Gam (Husky on a Hot Tin Roof) win with their float and lawn display — Rhody unable to overcome U Conn — lose game 36-8.

Honor societies elected the scholars of our class. Marilyn Sanborn chosen Co-ed Colonel. Art Russo coordinated a very successful Rhody Review. Skits presented ranged from “Mating Time in the Ozarks” to the “Can Can.” This would be the last Rhody Revue for two years. Our Junior Prom at the Sheraton Biltmore — Neil Hefti played — Ann Haseotes elected queen of the dance.

Open H ouse followed by Sorority Sing — Dianne Kaufman as Miss URI — the girls wore pastel-colored gowns that changed the quad into a river of flowers as they followed the queen to her throne. New Sachems tapped — eleven outstanding juniors are rewarded for a great deal of hard work — Skip Finizio is elected moderator. Senior Week arrived. This year we happily helped the Seniors celebrate their last week as students of URI. We couldn’t help thinking that very soon we too would be alumni. At Long last we had reached the heights of accomplishment. We faced the Fresh- men from our exalted position and thought to ourselves, “How young they look.” Many of us took advantage of our prestige as SENIORS and enjoyed back-to- school-daze down the line. Class elections and seniorities prevailed — we were getting old — For the fourth consecutive year we chose Skip Finizio to lead us . . . Gail Austin — veep . . . Ann Haseotes — secretary . . . John Capalbo — treasurer, and Guido Di Biasio was re- elected to the all important spot of social chairman.

We heard stories of great military maneuvers from our summer camp heroes. PIK became affiliated with KSK. Co-Captains Bill Poland and Frank Morey led Rhody to an 8-6 upset over North- eastern. Next Maine was battled to a o-o tie. Our first defeat came at the hands of UNH who walloped Rhode Island 45-0! Not much celebrating that night! Spirits were raised again when the “Cinderella” Rams beat Brandeis 20-0 and U Mass ,30-6. Menezes, McCormick, Lombardi and Rollins contributed some out- standing ball playing. Brown, however was too much. I J.R.I. bowed 6-0 in the “Mud Bowl.” This was by far the wettest game of the season, and the Rhody rooters had a hard time deciding just who was on their team. Poland and Peck were the outstanding players of this game. Springfield beat us too, 21-0 on a wet Homecoming Day. Kate Winfield was named Homecoming Queen — Alpha Xi and Tau Epsilon Phi won the display awards. Grads returned to attend the many reunions and get-togethers.

Apeda studios — sittings and retakes. “Is this really what I look like?” Frank Morey and Bill Poland named to All Yankee Conference Team upon com- pletion of football season.

New student apartments now fully inhabited. Sorority girls lucky enough to move in think, “This is the life!” Appointments with the placement office — more forms to fill out — Interviews — the third floor in Davis that meant success or failure with a company. “Will I ever get a job?” Boris Bell became URI’s new Director of Student Activities succeeding Dr. Ches- ter Berry who had accepted a position at Stamford University.

Two new buildings opened — Woodward Hall and new Administration Building. We heartily approve of the new working conditions. Rameses I, granite mascot donated by the Class of 1958 is dedicated in front of Memorial Union. AEPi volunteered for guard duty before the Brown game. “Ring Around the Moon” opened University Theatre — many new stars take their bows before the footlights. Rena Pazienza named queen of annual Aggie Bawl. Ground broken for $ 40,000 addition to Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity. More expan- sion and construction on campus. “Who’s Who ” — 28 classmates chosen. We found out who the “brains” of our class were with the announcement that twenty seniors had maintained honors for three consecutive years. Sorority rushing ends — last year for us to rush — 139 pledges under new rush system administered by Pan Hel. Dean Browning retired as Dean of Arts and Sciences after long and faithful service.

Donnelly’s boarded up for the winter — Pier pretty dead — no Reading Day to spend in the Union. Flunk second semester seniors? . . . not a chance . . . but we’d better study just the same. Only one more set of finals to go — a big sigh of relief is heard! Vacation between semesters is spent going on interviews and trips to companies. Or, by the more fortunate among us a trip to Florida was welcomed with joy. Spring social season opened in February and we buckled down to enjoy our last semester on campus. Parties, dances and socials — all received our hearty approval. Soon members of the junior class were taking over gavels, typewriters, and ink- stained experiences. These were our successors and to them we wished a heartfelt “Good Luck.” Sigma’s May Breakfast — those strawberries sure hit the spot! LEE C.

The Panhellenic Association is the governing body for inter-sorority relations on campus. Two delegates from each of the eight sorority units form this representative body. The objectives of The Panhellenic Association are: To maintain a good sorority life and foster inter-sorority relations within the University. To further intellectual accomplishment and sound scholarship. To cooperate with the University administration in the maintenance of high social standards. To compile rules governing rushing and pledging. To act as a forum for the discussion of questions of interest to the university and sororities. To establish procedures by which potential sorority groups may be recognized and admitted to Panhellenic membership.

There are many fond memories of Alpha Delta Pi, of working together harmoni- ously, living up to our motto: “We live for each other.” Fall: Fun and hard work on our Homecoming Float; hot dog roasts over a huge warm fireplace which symbolizes the ever pervading warmth of the friendships made here; the joy of having fifteen wonderful new pledges who will keep up the tradition of ADn. Winter: Christmas time — singing of Christmas Carols, a Christmas party for the orphanage; then vacation followed by final exams the fun stops for a while and the work concluded. Spring: Pledge Formal, Initiation, and banquet, more socials. Enjoying the warm spring days on our patio — basking in the sun. Prospect of summer vacation and satisfaction upon looking back at a well rounded year. The “Fuzzies” had a great year beginning with our suave new apartments which are very conducive to gab sessions, listening to Belafonte and Mathis, a great deal of eating — and, of course, studying! We were mighty proud of Kate, our Homecoming Queen and our beautiful win- ning Homecoming Float. This year the fads were knitting, new hair-dos by B. C., nail polish and the Kings- ton Trio. Other memories are our wonderful pledge class, the Christmas party, “Help” week, the Pledge Formal, Initiation, Sorority Sing, seniors’ party, beach days and for the seniors the wonderful time at Senior Week. From all of the sisters and pledges we wish happiness and success to “Rules,” Chris, Lynn, Kate, “C. T.,” Pris, Judy, “Stewie,” Cathy, Lynne, and Jan. Row : Tangrcdi, B., Treas., Whitehead, D., V.

Remember this past year — quite a year for the “Babes In Toyland.” We remember our rushed “rushing season,” the war paint we donned for our Homecoming float, and our new house and chapter room. Could we ever forget the “March of the Toy Soldie rs,” “We Can’t Do the Sum,” or the many hours we spent in front of the T.V. set? We remember most of all our wonderful pledge class and what the name of Beta Kpsilon has come to mean to all of us. It means friendship, happy memories, and a place to bring and leave our problems. BK bids good-bye to its Seniors — those who founded it — and turns to look ahead to a progressive future. Another wonderful year for Lambda Beta of Chi Omega. The little grey house with the yellow shutters was the scene of many happy occasions: Homecoming, pledging, our annual Christmas party, our Founders’ Day Banquet, and many more out- standing events which will remain in our memories long after we have left U.R.I. Every Chi O will remember the many intangible things which have made this year so wonderful; but most of all we’ll remember the warmth and understanding of our housemother Mrs. Walker and Chi Omega itself, with its friendships and mem- ories to cherish forever.

What Sigma will never forget — the sun rising after a night of Books, cigarettes, coffee and chatter — Homecoming and our “balloon” that never got off the ground — our leaky pipes — our new furniture, at last, — rushing — pinnings, engagements, weddings and babies — our own “beatnicks” — Santa’s annual visit with “Ugly Elf- Ant” and “Snowflake” — hour long five minute meetings — “fourth for Bridge” — Studying on the porch in the spring — getting a ride down to the beach, have to get that first of the season tan and or burn — parties down at the big house — and of course our May Breakfast. These are only some of the memories of our beloved Sigma Kappa. We shall re- member them always — “Adieu Seniors” Due to an overcrowded freshmen class, 30 optimistic and enthusiastic frosh gals took up residence in the “Little Campus” — a row of sparkling brick buildings ad- jacent to the men’s dorms. The name, by the way, was suggested by our delightful and extremely patient cleaning woman. But never let it be said that the Little Campus wasn’t right on the ball! How can we ever forget — participation in basketball and tennis — the Christmas door display — the pains and bruises incurred in making our Homecoming Float — our socials with the men’s dorms — our nightly get togethers — the wonderful friends we’ve made — the old acquaintances we renewed — our representation in WSGA and WAA. These and countless other things, great and small, will live forever in our minds and hearts as we leave the “Little Campus” as freshmen to the thrilling “sopho- more world” in the unknown.

Eleanor Freshmen, as we see you walk down the long pathway of cherry trees to our red brick building, we look back upon the day when we first entered, and we know that you will also share some of the wonderful experiences we have had here. Here we made our first major decision — we chose between sorority or independent living — a choice affecting the remainder of our college career. For those of us who remained here, E. R. symbolized a home away from home. Smiles, tears of joy, weary eyes, and roaring laughter have all been a part of our life in E. R. The Homecoming it rained and our display fell apart as the judges went by — Niagara Falls in the laundry (the overflowing Bendixes) until we got our new machines — hide and seek with wastebaskets at room inspection time — rows of pin- curled heads out of front windows as a sweetheart is serenaded — Christmas time with our children’s party full of beaming faces when Santa arrived. Busy knitting needles along with the familiar cry — “Block it!” He’ll never know one foot’s bigger than the other — those gorgeous beach days when no one studied and those even- ings we burned the midnight oil cramming for finals — You freshmen are frightened by it all — the sophs are used to it — the juniors are tired of it — and we seniors are going to miss it all. Roosevelt 102 Anne A new season, a new school, and new students flocking noisily, with eager faces and anxious hearts into a new experience. These were the freshmen whom Ann Hutchin- son Hall welcomed one Sunday in September 1959. Then, after only a few days in which the freshmen could get settled in their rooms with new surroundings and roommates whom perhaps they’ve never known before, the upperclassmen made their return — their invaluable experience proved very helpful concerning courses, pro- fessors, homecoming, sororities, appropriate attire, and a number of the other intri- cacies of university life. One of our great thrills was listening to our recently-pinned girls being sung to by “that favorite fraternity”. Napkins and endless chickenwire gave us busy days in preparation for our float. Those few weeks of rushing, neg- lected studies, and endless “coffee dates” finally came to a welcome end with bids and ribboned pledge pins. Formals and parties, term papers and averages to be made — these and much more through the year have made our days full of fun and fascinating.

For most of us it was our first year at URI and with it many first impression s — Peck Hall, our new home, saw us through both. We’ll never forget: registration and those charming beanies — our first demerits — we learned the hard way — the rallies and the football games — our first fraternity parties — the Aggie Ball, our first for- mal; we were so proud of Rena, our sweet, dark-haired Sophomore who was crowned queen — Brown weekend and Homecoming How it poured — singing together ac- companied by that familiar banjo — sorority rushing and the smiling faces of the new pledges — those gab sessions in the lounge until 4 A.M. — those good suppers down the line — Christmas parties and holiday vacations — waiting anxiously for those long distance phone calls from that certain someone — stuffing ourselves and then exer- cising until dawn — Sarah, our cute little “mascot” — History 7 — one of our biggest problems — the familiar cry, “Who’s buzzer?” — warm spring days — studying on the Helen Peck Hall beach — the “joys” of telephone duty — sorority sing and spring week — those upper- classmen who helped so much — our wonderful “housemoms” — Mrs. Young and Mrs. Quirk. But most of all, when recalling the happy “daze” of our freshman year, we will remember the warm and lasting friendships we made in Peck — the girls with whom we could share both our good times and our problems. 1 04 Row i: Mancini, R., Treas., Schachner, R., V.

The Interfraternity Council, originally founded as the Polygon in 1911, has made many advances in recent years. The IFC has increased cooperation among frater- nities, has formulated rules and procedures for rushing and pledging of new fra- ternity members and as a regulator of fraternity affairs. It further serves to ensure cooperation between fraternities and the University administration. Serving as faculty advisors to the IFC are Dr. John F. Quinn, Dean of Men, Henry A. Dux, Assistant Dean of Men and Dr. George E. Osborne. The Faculty Committee on Fraternities, composed of fraternity faculty advisors and the Dean of Men serves as a reviewing body for the council’s disciplinary actions. The IFC sponsors the Interfraternity Sing and Greek Week, also awards for scholarship and improvements within the fraternity.

Kappa Sigma Kappa The brothers of Kappa Sigma Kappa can look back on this year and be justly proud of the many firsts that we have achieved with the knowledge of a job well done. Our merger with Rho Iota Kappa became official. It was the first year we officially moved into our own fraternity house. The scholarship trophy was won by the brotherhood for the first time. The first year the parents of the brotherhood formed an organization. The vie dances, homecoming, the Christmas party for the orphans, pledge formal, Sweetheart Ball and the crowning, the Iris Ball, and finally the blast for the seniors. As the seniors leave with mixed emotions of joy and regret who can forget — hippity hop’s horses, the winning team of general george and the golden animal, tony and roberts’ rules, buddha’s jazz, sledge’s pear, pop’s house, orgy’s grass, trash and the spirit, and midge’s meetings.

A great year for Eta, one to be remembered. The fastest year of all has passed for the Fiji seniors. All of us will miss Heathcliffe and Pwinkle, King Pharr and the Pharaohs, and jokes about the brown-baggers. Gone will be the conversation around Mrs. Wertz’s coffee table and above all the inexpressible feeling of oneness that was felt by all at Phi Gamma Delta. We hope even better years lie ahead, but their foundation was built here in the common bonds of fraternal relationship.

Once again the graduation march summons a group of “Phi Kaps” to make their way in the world. We carry with us fond memories of college life enlivened with fra- ternity living. Those “mechanical” functions, the late runs to “Uncle” Moy’s and Iggy’s, and the mad rush to complete our thirty foot dismembered Indian for our lawn display will long be remembered. The Homecoming banquet under the capable direction of “Dad” was superb, the Pledge Formal and Rose Formal were sublime, and our annual Harvest Hayride even showed a slight profit! Our picnic, socials, co-rec sports — ah, what a life — all these things bring priceless and unforgettable memories and a depleted treasury. And so we carry our treasures and leave these halls of learning, not saying good- bye — just so long for now. Once again a solid, active part of Phi Mu prepares to leave and join the ranks of the alumni. Remembering the pledging, especially “that” week, those house meetings, sing practice, intramurals, the pledge dances, the Fiestas, the various trips to Iggy’s, Giro’s, N. Y., and that Anchor Bar, and all that goes into the Phi Mu tradition which holds from year to year even though the factor of change has been pressing hard, the Moose, Mac, a suave Chick, Party Miniati, Smiley Randall, Stroutman, Wiles, Wheezer, Chimpaneze, Laz, the Head, Munch, Agates, Chicky, Buzz Corry, Clark Kent and Max J. (don’t lie to me, kid!) Loudenslager will make their exit. Come back and see us in the future fellas, and see if old Phi Mu has changed as much as you thought it would. Best of luck — always.

This has been one of the most momentous years at the Phi Sig house in the last dec- ade. With our addition completed the chapter no longer takes a back seat to any other house. This has been a year when Phi Sig produced its own Kingston Trio, Quartet, Quintet. Fond are the memories of the Saturday night assemblies at the Wheel. The problems of the world were no longer solved over the Lippitt Hall meals but at our own “gourmet’s palace.” For the second consecutive year the bowling team was right up top fighting for the league lead. And then there is our football team (?). It is the year when Phi Sigs from all over New England descended on Keaney Gym to battle their way through a basketball tournament. All these things the seniors cherish and the underclassmen recall. To our new “alums” the best of luck and a hearty “OOm Ya Ya.” Upon completion of its thirty-first year at U.R.I., Sigma Alpha Epsilon reached an all time high in membership, scholastics, and campus activities. We are proud to say, that with the completion of our new wing, the house capacity has reached sixty, and we are now operating at full efficiency. This year has been a very enjoyable one socially. Our social calendar was full with such prominent and entertaining functions as Homecoming, the Sweetheart Dance, the Seaweed Shuffle, and our annual Formal. Through the cooperation and guidance of Dr. Osborn, our faculty advisor, and Mrs. White, our housemother, we were able to understand and achieve many new goals.

The seniors who leave us now will never forget the memorable events o f the year; Homecoming, with its happy turnout; the Sweetheart Ball, with its beautiful coeds and nostalgic moments; the Barbary Coast Brawl, with its rocking and rollicking; the Sigma Chi Derby, with its “brawrL against brawn;” the Turkey Bowl game and its undefeated Brotherhood. All this against a background of Rhody’s increasing spirit, growing campus, Union activities, and intense curriculums. All this at 73 Upper College Road with lovable Ma Thornley, the chilly winter decks; the newly planted, newly trampled grass; the hand stands; the cha-cha-cha. “Chairs!” “Telephone!” “It’ll never get off the ground!” “Study hours!” “You’ll never make it!” “Wonderful!” “Line call’.” None of this is ever to be forgotten by those who partook of it. Since 1959 is the thirtieth anniversary of the founding of our fraternity on this campus, we have a very special year to recollect. Our never-to-be-forgotten house meetings — the missing peanut butter — Lien A.’s napkins — the pledge follies — the cold deck serenaders — the hole in the treasure — the T.G.I.F.’s — the formals and the blasts — rushing — and so many others. There were rowdy moments, but there were quiet ones too. We would not have had it any other way. And we look back in pride at our senior class which successfully achieved the expan- sion of our chapter house both physically and fraternally, and we look forward in ex- pectancy to the remaining activities and our pledge class for higher objectives and greater accomplishments in the name of Sigma Nu.

Proud brothers and pledges moved into their new house at 99 Upper College Road — “God bless our mortgaged home.” We welcomed our new housemother, Mrs. Niven, knowing that she would be very help- ful in guiding us through our college years. Our fine seniors are graduating, but they leave us memories that will not be too soon forgotten. Recall the work-parties, when all pitched in to get the cleaning and painting done — pledge pranks — Sam, our ever-so-nervous mascot — initiations — Homecoming — “Flush” — parties at the Pier — and elsewhere — Mag’s coming of age -the Pledge Formal and Orchid Ball. We wish you success Mag, Magoo, Leo, Nells, and of course, “Lover,” you finally made it. The brothers of Tau Epsilon Phi look back at 1959 and i960 as a very successful year at 11 Campus Avenue. We won first place in the lawn display contest of Home- coming. The fraternities greatest accomplishment of the year was the building of our new addition which doubled the size of the house. We at Tau Epsilon Phi con- gratulate the thirteen brothers who are graduating and wish them good luck in their endeavors. We are sure that the seniors will always remember the great times that we had by all of our parties down the line, Homecoming, Brown game, and the Spring formal. Good bye and good luck to the class of i960. Row 1: Beerman, J., Sec., Rosenblatt, R., Treas., Lubusky, J., Pres., Newman, S., V. Pres.

Buffalo, King, Luke, Swan, Moto, Uni, Mac, Gus, Dobes, and Ma — these are all memories that will live with us forever. Each one holds a deeper meaning for every senior that will not be among us come next fall. Four years go quickly. As we prepare ourselves to enter our respective fields of endeavor we look back at more than our book and classes. We recall the social life and the activities and most of all we recall the many friends that we have made. Most of these memories will center around Eta chapter for it is here that we have lived and studied and it is here that we have made most of our close bonds. These memories will be more con- cerned with these friendships than with the many parties, the numerous dances, the formals and the Beaux Arts each years, and thousands of impromptu gatherings that have taken place over our four years. These friendships have allowed us to have the other things. We must also part with “Mom” Whelan who came to us when we were pledges in the house. The guidance and warmth that she has afforded us will always be with us. Fraternity life has been a wonderful thing, an education in itself. We drink a toast to Theta Chi now as we have done so many times in the past and will continue to do in the future.

Bressler is mighty proud of its athletes, too. Con- gratulations you did a great job. A new ping-pong table really has taken abuse — but we have to ad- mit that it did set us back a few pennies. These are only a few of the things that kept us busy. Of course, we can’t forget the famous words, “Hit the Books,” The Bull sessions, the jokes, and of course our terrific housemother. She deserves a medal.

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 dur- ing the seventh semester. Most students are elected toward the close of their college course. Spring elections are also concerned with out- standing graduate students and members of the university faculty. 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 establishment of a chapter of Sigma Xi at U.R.I. was accepted by the National Executive Council in the Spring of 1949. The instal- lation took place in the Spring of 1951. Sigma Xi is the foremost science society on the campus. Row i: Salomon, M., Hyland, K., Sec., Miller, C., Pres., Youngken, H., V. Pres., Parks, M. M.

The society was founded in 1885 at Lehigh University; the charter for the U.R.I. chapter was granted February 13, 1954. The primary purpose is to make in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished schol- arship and exemplary character as undergraduates in engineering and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in the engineering colleges of America. Tau Beta Pi Alpha Zeta Alpha Zeta was established as an honorary society as well as a pro- fessional fraternity in whose membership shall be combined the qual- ities of high scholarship, fine fellowship, and sound character. Our purpose is to create and bond together a body of technical men who by scholarly attainment, faithful service, and maintenance of ethical ideals and principles have attained distinction and are cap- able of honoring achievement among others; to strive for breath of vision, unity of action, and accomplishment of ideals.

Its chapters are established in colleges and universities of accredited and recognized 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 mem- bers are inscribed on a scroll. Primary qualifications of student candidates for active member- ship include high scholarship, and promise of achievement in their standing is a distinction that is worthwhile and an encouragement toward continued intellectual effort. Pi Sigma Alpha The Alpha Chi Chapter of the Phi Sigma Biolog- ical Society was chartered in 1935. The mem- bership is comprised of undergraduate, graduate, faculty, and honorary members. An overall B average with no less than a B in any biological subject are criteria for selection in the Junior and Senior years, for students who have shown an interest in the biological sciences.

The Student Senate is the voice of the student body which acts as an intermediary between students, faculty, and administration. With its members elected on a unit basis, the Senate is a truly representative or- ganization which supervises extra-curricular activities involving the students. Some of the activities of the Senate are control of all class elections, sponsorship of the Campus Chest, and the approval of constitutions of all newly formed campus organizations. A new undertaking was the scheduling and supervision by the Senate of Home- coming events. The election of a Homecoming Queen was instituted as a part of the Student Senate 138 Inter-Residence Council The objects of this organization shall be to promote closer relations and liason with other campus organi- zations, among dormitory residents, and to improve living conditions in the dormitory; also to supply the residents with such comforts and recreations as lie within the scope of the organization, and to offer an opportunity for self-government.

It includes: Holy Communion (and breakfast) on Wednesdays, Sunday services in St. Augustines Chapel at 9:30, 11:15, and 5:30, weekly coffee hours with a faculty guest, lively Can- terbury meetings and a Sunday evening supper group, and Maria our “adopted” Greek child. Our chief asset is Canterbury House, our base of operations so to speak, which is open to all, all day, seven days a week. Whenever the University is in ses- sion you can always find a number of Canterburians and their friends enjoying the fellowship at Canterbury House. Canterbury Association 146 Scroll is a relatively small organization. Its members are people who are interested in the Fine Arts. This interest is not limited to a passive appreciation or discussion of the Arts but is an active interest. Many of the members of Scroll write poetry and short stories for the journal published by our organization. It is one of the objectives of Scroll to encourage creatively not only in writing but also in other fields of the fine Arts. We often show films, either documentary or fictional classics considered works of Art either alone or good portrayals of great novels. Our meetings are re- laxed and not bound by rules of procedure. Discussions are generally varied, heated, and lively. The members of Scroll are indeed individualistic, a necessary ingredient in a creative, thoughtful person. Society is indeed richer by the presence of these serious thinkers and artistic creators. Grist Row i: Wilkie, C., Wiley, E., Bogacki, B., Editor-in-chief, DiBiasio, G., Man. Ed., Smith, R.

University Theater In 1952 the University Theater officially became the ou tstanding organization it is today. Since that time it has made considerable progress, culminating this season with the addition of a Radio Workshop, a project of the Speech Department under the direction of Mr. John Price, in conjunction with the theater; a new Technical Director — Mr. Steve Travis from the Tulsa Civic Theater, Tulsa, Oklahoma; and a schedule of exceptional plays. The Theater began the year with a production of Jean Anouilh’s Ring Round the Moon. This romantic, sophisitcated comedy was an overwhelming success on Home- coming Weekend not only for the student body, but also for the Alumnae. The sec- ond project of the Theater was the High School Workshop. Eleven High Schools from the State performed and observed, under the guidance of members of the Uni- versity Theater. This year the High School Workshop had a greater attendance than ever before. Dark of the Moon, a grass roots drama of the Smoky Mountains, based on the legend of Barbara Allen, was certainly a success. The University Theater’s first attempt with a Tragi-comedy of this type, the performance excelled because of Pro- fessor Robert E. Will’s able direction, Mr. Steve Travis’ technical assistance and unique set designs, and cooperative efforts of cast and crews. The Radio Workshop presented its first production “The Plot to Overthrow Christmas” by Norman Corwin. As its third production the University Theater chose Tennesee Williams’ Glass Menagerie, under the direction of Mr. Steve Travis and the technical assistance of Professor William Jones. Glass Menagerie was a delicate, artistic and unconventional treatment of a deeply-moving memory play. Along with the productions on campus, The University Theater was invited to attend the special Theater session of the annual New England Speech Association, and presented a demonstration of creative theater in the form of an original play, Heritage, by Sherwood Collins, assist ant director of the Wisconsin Idea Theater. The University Theater also expanded the opportunities available for the indi- vidual interested in creative theater. This was done through Dramatic Arts Course Twelve, fundamentals of theater production, the special aim of which is to enable students to create, produce, and direct original experimental productions. Two other segments of the University Theater, often not acknowledged though intrinsically important to any production, were also enlarged. These two segments, namely Business, and Public Relations, offer opportunities for people interested in the managerial aspects of the Theater. The University Theater concluded the 59-60 season with its participation in the All-University Musicale — Carousel. The University Theater is one of the very few organizations capable of utilizing talent as diverse as the transition from electrician and actor to writer and artist im- plies. The University Theater is growing and growth means rewarding opportunities for new members. 161 University Orchestra The University Band has many varied activities. During the foot- ball season it is turned into a marching band and besides playing at football games it adds spirit to the many pep rallies. The Concert Band plays two concerts during the year. One is the annual Christ- mas convocation and the other is a Sunday afternoon concert in March. Small groups of the band also play at basketball games, march with the alumni on Alumni Day, and participate in the New England Inter-Collegiate Band. The .University Chorus under its director, Professor Ward Abusamra, has in seven years grown to a membership of 130 voices. Drawing upon singers from all colleges of the University, the chorus sings music representative of all styles and periods — Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Modern. Last spring they sang concerts in five high schools throughout the state, and also a performance at the State House before the Rhode Island General Assembly. For this they received a resolution of commen- dation. The Christmas program included music of Tomas Luis da Victtoria, Healy Willan and the Christmas section of the Messiah by Handel. For the Spring Concert the University Chorus combined with Brown University and the Rhode Island Chorale, to perform the Cherubini “Requiem Mass” in Roger Williams Park. “Carousel” was the musical for the Spring Production.

The station is located on the second floor of the Memorial Union Building. The club encourages its new members to obtain their ama- teur radio licenses from the F.C.C. so that they may operat e the club station, and set-up stations of their own. The club is active in Civil Defense radio networks, and on their own 6-meter network, with transmitters located in the dorms and housing units on campus. Radio Club WRIU is a student owned and operated radio station operating at 550 kc. on the standard AM dial. WRIU brings to the students of the university music, news, special events and specialized training in radio station operations broadcasting techniques and technical operations. WRIU welcomes all students of the university who wish to learn more about broadcasting to audition. The philosophy behind the present operations of WRIU is simply that the station is open for both the educational and entertainment aspects of radio. We feel that WRIU provides a valuable facility to the student within which he can learn about radio , about personality development as well as a facility within which he can find recreation and relaxation.

The primary objective of the Club is to help students achieve skill in skin and SCUBA diving and places emphasis on the importance of safe diving techniques. The Club conducts both wet and dry meetings. Features of the dry meetings include guest speakers, films and discussions of new develop- ments in the fields of skin and SCUBA diving. The wet meetings are training sessions held at the Quonset Naval Station Pool. Skin Divers Club 168 Rifle Association The 1959-1960 season finds Coach Miller’s rifle team sighting in on bigger and better targets. Some unprecedented events have already taken place. Caught up in the whirlwind of expansion at the University, the team has emerged with an enlarged firing range with twice its former capacity. The team has posted a score of 1409 in shoulder-to-shoulder competition which appears to be a record for a University of Rhode Island team. Captain Ted Dziok fired a 290 out of a possible 300 which ranks him the best. Bob Mooza came up with a perfect target shooting in the kneeling position, a feat of no little merit. Veteran shooter Elton Cohen has returned to the fold and is resuming his position as one of the top scorers. Sophomore Bob Saunders, who has a growing collection of perfect prone targets, and classmate Henry Phillips are proving to be very capable competitors. Another of the “big guns” is fired by Junior Dave Webber who, along with return- ing letterman Bob Anson and Sophomore Steve Edwards are major contributors to the team. Interest in shooting is reaching new heights and along with the interest comes accomplishment. The men of the University Rifle Team are doing a good job repre- senting their University.

The Accounting Association was founded in March 1949, to supplement the study of accounting, to inves- tigate the possibilities of employment for graduating members, and to promote social activities. Another purpose is to acquaint all students at the University with the uses and functions of accounting. Each year the name of an accounting major, who over the first three years has attained the highest average in class work at U.R.I. is inscribed on a plaque in the College of Business Administration. Alpha Delta Sigma is a national professional advertising fraternity that include active undergraduate chapters and alumni chapters in the principal cities of advertising activity. The undergraduate chapters are dedicated to “Bridging the Gap” between advertising theory and experience, our own chapter attempts to foster interest in the advertising profession, to promote an atmos- phere 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 major projects of the fraternity are the composition of an advertising blotter and a social calendar. Row i: Steen, M., Carnevale, R., Pres., Bretsch, L., Advisor, Donovan, C., O’Toole, A.

The Economics Society is primarily interested in the informal discussion of contemporary economic prob- lems. Meetings are highlighted by prominent speakers from the various fields dealing with economic matters. The purpose of the organization is the development of an awareness in the minds of its members and other campus citi zens of the important economic and politi- cal problems which are constantly arising in the mun- icipal, state, national, and international scene. Economics Society 172 Insurance Association The primary function of the Insurance Association is to provide a bridge for the gap between theoretical and practical insurance knowl- edge. We accomplish this by inviting prominent insurance men from various fields of insurance to speak of their professions. Each semes- ter we take a field trip to the home office of an insurance company for a one-day trainee program. The direct contacts with the business world combined with our courses in insurance have provided us with an excellent foundation for work in the insurance industry. Scholarship in insurance is fostered by two annual awards pre- sented by Rhode Island Insurance Agents Associations. Row .- Lubusky, J., Giordano, J., Treas., Feld, D., Pres., Arnold, H., V.

Bill Poland FOOTBALL ’59 Rhode Island 8 Northeastern 6 The University of Rhode Island Rams opened the 1959 campaign with an 8-6 victory over the Northeastern Huskies before 4,500 fans at Brookline. The Rams got off to a flying start as they marched 96 yards in 18 plays for their first score of the year. John Rollins and Bill Poland did most of the carrying. After Rollins made a first down on the Huskies 15, quarterback Roger Pearson crossed up the opposi- tion with a wide keeper to the left which carried to the 2. Rollins, hitting oflf the left side, spun into the end zone for the score. Pearson then fired a short pass to Rollins for the two point conversion which ultimately proved to be the margin of victory. Tom Flaherty, the Huskie’s fine quarterback, guided Northeastern from its own 15 to its T.D. When the Rhody line had stalled the Huskie’s ground attack, Flaherty took to the air and was credited with a completion on an interference penalty. He then threw a 35 yard pass down the right side to end Brian McKenna for the touchdown. Jim Hennes- sey was downed attempting a pass for the conversion and the Huskies trailed 8-6 from that point on. The Rhody line contained the opposition’s attack in the 3rd period but the Huskies picked up steam in the 4th quarter and pounded their way down to the 8 yd. line. On a fourth down play with only inches to go, the U.R.I. line piled up the Huskie ' s McGonagle and shook loose the ball. Pete MacDougall recovered for the Rams on the 6 yd. line. Pearson continued his fine play by getting off a long punt in the last quarter that put the Huskies in the hole and the game in the bag. U.R.I. was down to the Northeastern 21 when the game ended. Rhode Island 0 Maine 0 The first home game saw the Rams battle the Black Bears of Maine to a scoreless tie in their Yankee Conference opener at Meade Field. Maine’s powerful running team had a slight edge in the statistics, but these figures did not tell the story of the Rams fight, drive, and determined defense. The Black Bears started rolling in the first period but Roger Pearson stopped them when he intercepted a pass on the U.R.I. 13. A few minutes later, after a vicious tackle by Earle Perkins, the Rams recovered a Maine fumble on their own 1 j. Later in the quarter the Maine squad started from its own 39 and drove down to the U.R.I. 5. After three unsuccessful cracks at the U.R.I. line, quarterback Art Mills took to the air, but Rhode Island 20 Brandeis 0 The Rams bounced back from the New Hampshire defeat to down Brandeis University 20-0 at Gordon field in Waltham. John Rollins, Bill Poland, Gene Peck, and Roger Pearson provided the offensive punch as Rhody scored in each of the first three periods. Rhode Island took the ball on its own 38. Poland made 13 yards on a smash at the right side. Rollins set as a flanker to the left, went downfield and cut in to catch Pearson’s perfect pass. The speedy halfback reversed his field and outran several judges to the goal line. U.R.I. went 65 yards in 14 plays for its second touchdown. Rollins, Poland, and Peck carried with Poland gaining all but three of the final 21 yards. Poland rammed over from three yards out for the touchdown. A Pearson to Rollins pass clicked for the two point conversion and Rhody led 14-0 at halftime. After Rollie Bettez recovered a Brandeis fumble in the 3rd quarter the Rams started to roll again, this time on the strength of some fine running by Gene Peck. “Doberman” gained almost all of the Rams 41 yards and scored on a plunge from the 1 yard line. The Judges were unable to mount a serious threat as they were held to 56 yards on the ground by the U.R.I. forward wall. Billy Baxter and Charlie Vento guided the Rams into touchdown territory in the fourth quarter but Rhody fumbled on the three. Co-Capt. Bill Poland, who gained 69 yards with an average of over J yards per carry, provided the offensive power while Frank Morey, Rollie Bettez and Jim McCormack contained the opposition. Rhode Island 30 A lass. 6 The University of Rhode Island football team came up with its finest performance of the season in crushing the Massachusetts Redmen by a 30-6 count. With John Rollins spearheading a top notch team effort, the Rams battered their way across the field con- tinuously for their victory. Quarterbacks Roger Pearson’s understudy, Charlie Vento, cleverly directed a well planned attack in moving the ball 60 yards in 8 plays for Rhody’s first score. A Vento to Nick Grosz pass climaxed the drive. Co-Capt. Bill Poland saved the day by batting the ball down in the end zone. That goal line stand was easily the defensive highlight of the season for the Rams and one of the best stands a Rhode Island team has turned in over several seasons. It undoubt- edly saved the game for U.R.I. as neither team came close again. Rhody made a determined bid for a score just before the half ended. With John Rollins running brilliantly and Pearson clicking with his passes the Rams marched 75 yards to Maine 9 before time ran out. Rhode Island 0 UNH 45 Jack Welch took the second half kickoff and it looked as if the Maine back would go all the way but Rollins caught him at the U.R.I. 44. Late in the game the Black Bears tried a field goal from the 1 5 and once again Rollins rose to the occasion, roared in and blocked the kick. Rhode Island made its last bid and moved the ball from its own 15 to the Maine 21 on a series that included sizeable gains by Rollins and Bob La Roche but Maine held and took over on the 19, retaining possession until the clock ran out. The outweighed and outmanned Rams, showing the effects of their rugged tests against Northeastern and Maine the last two weeks, were never in contention against the Wild- cats of New Hampshire. U.N.H., led by quarterback Sam Paul and halfback Charlie Beach pushed across a score in the opening quarter and then, gathering momentum, registered twice in each of the remaining three quarters. It looked as if Rhody was going to have an easy time of it in the early minutes of the game when Bob Humphrey recovered a U.N.H. fumble on the Wildcats 38 but a Pearson to MacDonald pass went astray after the latter had gotten behind the U.N.H. secondary on the 15 yard line. The Wildcats moved 46 yards for their first score mainly on the strength of two Paul to Lou D’AlIesandro passes. Rushiewicz banged over from the 4. After an exchange of punts in the 2nd quarter, New Hampshire drove 77 yards for its second touchdown, which Beach highlighted with a 34 yard gallop to the one. He went over on the next play. Rhody threatened midway through the period on two Pearson to Humphrey passes but the Wildcats tightened their defense, took over on downs and promptly marched to their third score. Paul completed a pass to Mezquita on the 2 and the latter scored on the next play. U.N.H. continued to pour it on in the second half as Beach, Denncn, Glennon, and Klopfer scored for the victors. Rhody never stopped trying but it just could not cope with the bigger, deeper, and speedier Wildcats. Co-Capt. Frank Morey Rollins and Bob LaRoche lugged the ball to the Mass. 13 midway in the third quarter. Pearson then slid into the end zone from inches out for the second score. Later, Rollins intercepted a pass and returned it to the jo. A Vento pitchout to Rollins was good for 19 yards and Gene Peck later barrelled over from the 11 yard stripe. Jack MacDonald took Vento’s pass for the extra point. The final touchdown by Co-Captain Bill Poland was set up by a Rollin’s 48 yard jaunt. Billy Baxter tools Vento’s pitchout and passed to end Ev. Greer to end the scoring for the day. Rollins was the outstanding man on the field with 233 yards gained and a fine perform- ance in defense. Tackles Rollie Bettez and Co-captain Frank Morey held the Mass, offense to 89 yards rushing. Bevo Menezes, Jim McCormick, and Felix Lombardi played well in a tremendous team effort. Rhode Island 0 Brown 6 The Rhode Island Rams football team fought a determined but vain battle with the Brown Bruins before an estimated 7,000 rain-drenched spectators. The sea of mud con- tributed to the sloppy ball handling in this " mud bowl.” With 39 seconds remaining in the first half, one of the East’s top ground gainers, Paul Choquette, slanted off tackle on fourth down with less than a yard to go for the game’s lone score. Nick Grosz blocked the attempted conversion. Sophomore quarterback Nelson Rohrback, a converted end, teamed up with Dave Tyler to grind out the yardage for the Bruins. Tyler established a new Bruin record in carrying the ball 30 times for 1 19 yards. Brown piled up ij first downs to State’s 6. Bill Poland rushed for 51 yards and remained a bulwark on defense in thwarting repeated end run attempts by the Bruins. Gene Peck also contributed yardage with his bull-like rushes. Rhody’s only two serious scoring attempts were stifled by an interception and a fumble. Rohrback snagged a Vento pass on the Bruin 12 after the Rams had moved it to their opponents ' 20. Choquette pounced on an errant lateral and mix-up in Rhody signals to remove a second threat by the Rams. The superior size and strength of the Brown line offset the fine play of the Rhody linemen. Rhode Island 0 Springfield 21 The University of Rhode Island’s football forces suffered their third defeat of the sea- son in bowing to Springfield 21-0, before a rainsoaked Homecoming crowd. The score is not indicative of the ballgame as a whole. The Rams were in contention up until late in the third quarter, when they were repulsed on the Maroon’s 2 yd. line. This goal line stand broke the back of the Rams and culminated an afternoon of frustration. At the outset the Rams had things pretty much their own way, as Billy Baxter directed the Rams to the Springfield 21, before Roger Durant picked off a pass on his own five. Springfield bounced back and drove 65 yards in notching their first of three touchdowns. John Barth, Springfield’s fourth string quarterback up until this Saturday proved to be their hero of the day with his passing and running. He repeatedly ran an option play which the Rams could not contain. The score was 7-0 in the fourth quarter when Barth passed for a T.D., and added the The turning point of the game was when the Maroons held the Rams on their own 2 yd. line with the score 7-0. It was a long afternoon for the Rhode Island crowd who had little to cheer about. The one bright spot was the standout performance of Bill Poland who gained 84 yds. in 19 carries; the top ground gainer in the game, and backed up the line with his usual effec- tiveness. Rhode Island 6 Buffalo The strong University of Buffalo Bulls handed the Rhode Island Rams a 41-6 thrashing in a grueling test for the out-manned Rams. The Bulls, winners of the Lambert Trophy last year and the seventh-ranked small college team in the nation this year, banged across two touchdowns in the first quarter for a 12-0 lead. The Rams scored their only touch- down of the day on an 8 yard plunge by halfback John Rollins. A Roger Pearson to Bob LaRoche pass set up the touchdown. Pouncing on Rhody miscues, the Bulls rolled up a 21-6 edge behind the flashy playing of one of Buffalo’s quarterbacks, Steve Bukaty. The second platoon field general of the Bulls, Dan Querie, also passed and ran flawlessly as he continued the assault on the hap- less Rams. The Rams dominated the play in the third quarter as they forsook their conventional T offense for a modified single wing. The team attempted 30 passes, with Pearson hitting on 1 1 of 25 for 101 yards. The powerful Bulls used three platoons in offsetting the spirited play of the Rams. Rollie Bettez, Frank Morey, and Bevo Menezes went almost the whole distance for Rhode Island. Center Jim McCormicks played both on offense and defense for 58 min- utes of the game. The fine play of junior Peter MacDougall, continuing in an ever-improv- ing performance, also was a highlight of an eventful but dismal day for the Rams. The powerful University of Connecticut football machine methodically outplayed the injury-plagued Rhode Island Rams in the 49th meeting of the teams at Storrs, Conn, and won 34-0. A total of 11,000 homecoming fans viewed the onslaught led by Jim Browning, ex-South Kingston star who lives but a few miles from the U.R.I. campus. U. Conn scored the second time they had the ball. Browning carried the pigskin to the three yard stripe and on the next play carried three defenders into the end zone for the tally. Bobby Humphrey saved a score by bringing down Minnerley after the Huskie had turned the end for 28 yards. Three plays later D’Avolia scored making it 12-0 Conn. Joe Kopp then ground out the brunt of 82 not meager yards for the third touchdown. Following a goal line stand Rhode Island came alive in the third quarter, as QB Rog Pearson engineered a drive to the Conn 37. Browning then intercepted a Pearson aerial and rambled unmolested for 63 yards to pay dirt. Sophmore Bob Frost ran 24 yards through the U.R.I. defense to end the days scoring. Junior Pete MacDougall, in his first starting assignment and Bevo Menezes filling in for the injured Frank Morey performed admirably. Roger Pearson, Bob La Roche, John Rollins, Rollie Bettez, and Bill Poland were also outstanding, as was sophomore end Ted Stebbins. Rhode Island 0 U.

Head Coach, Lasala, T., Stenhouse, R., Davenport, D., Weiss, M., Nast, W., Ricereto, D., Andersen, J., Schacter, S., Steinhardt, R. Mgr. The University of Rhode Island under the able coaching of Ernest Calverly opened the 1959-1960 basketball season with an impressive victory over the University of Hartford. Starters, Tom Harrington, Don Brown, Barry Multer, Dave Ricereto, and Gary Koenig with the assistance of Bob Chaplin, Ron Stenhouse, and Stu Schachter rolled up a decisive 86-40 victory. Multer and Ricereto lead the scor- ing attack with 13 points each. Rhody then traveled to Marvel Gym and lost a closely fought ball game to Brown University by the score of 89-83. The Bruin quintet set a fast pace, jumping to an early 15 point lead and Rhody just couldn’t come close to tightening the gap. Sophomore Dave Ricereto counted for 26 points. Harrington and Multer scored 24 and 12, respectively. A near capacity crowd at Keaney Gym witnessed a close battle with Dartmouth. Rhody pressed hard all the way but fell short in a 74-65 defeat. Ricereto, Multer, and Harrington contributed the bulk of Rhody’s points with Donnie Brown doing a fine job under the boards. Down by 10 points shortly after the beginning of the second half, Rhody battled its way to upset Fordham 79-77 in a thrill packed contest in New York. Co-captain Tom Harrington was the game’s top scorer with 26 points, followed by Multer with 17. Donnie Brown not only played his usually brilliant game under the boards, but counted for 16 big points. 212 Co-Capt. Tom Harrington Co-Capt. Don Brou n On the following evening Rhody again faced Vermont in a much harder contest. F orty thrilling minutes of basketball was played as Dave Ricereto’s scoring for the second straight night lead Rhody to Victory, this time 83-77. Ricereto scored the first seven points of the game and ended up with a total of 27. Brown, Stenhouse, and Multer scored 16, 15, and 12, respectively. On January 14, Rhody traveled to Worcester to play a strong Holy Cross five. The Crusaders jumped off to an early lead in the first half, fought off a stubborn Rhody bid in the second-half, and finished the evening with a 77-65 victory. The absence of Donnie Brown because of a back ailment was greatly felt under the boards and in the scoring column. Ricereto was high man with 22 points. Rhody won its third straight Yankee Conference game by defeat- ing an aggressive New Hampshire team by posting a 66-57 triumph. No one individual dominated the playing, but Bob Chaplin turned in a terrific performance in rebounding along with Gary Keonig. The pair snatched a total of 32 rebounds and fought off the rangy Huskies when the going got tough. Stenhouse was high scorer with 14, Ricereto and Koenig had 13 apiece, and Multer had 11. The Rams travelled to Amherst, Mass, to meet the University of Massachusetts who were undefeated in Yankee Conference play. The Redmen took a 69-66 decision from the Rhody team with a closely 213 Ronnie Stenhouse Barry Muller Dave Ricereto Gary Koenig Stu Schacter fought game all the way. Sophomore Mike Weiss made his debut for Rhody after transfering from Houston by scoring 16 points. Ricereto lead the scoring with 22 points. The free throw line proved to be the deciding factor, as the Rams dropped another 69-66 decision to Rutgers. Rutgers made 21 out of 30 shots from the foul line while Rhody connected on only six of 12. Weiss, playing his second game, scored 23 points and had 18 rebounds. Stenhouse tallied 18 and Ricereto 14. In one of the most exciting and heartbreaking games of the season Rhody dropped its second Conference game to the University of Connecticut, defending Yankee Conference champions, by a score of 66-62. The game was tied 1 1 times and the lead changed hands on 14 different occasions. Neither team had a lead of more than 6 points at any time in the game. Donnie Brown made a surprise appearance, not having played since he had injured his back in December, and played a terrific game under the boards and contributed 11 points to the cause. Ricereto scored 14, Weiss 14, and Stenhouse 13. Row i: Nordquist, W., Warren, R., Wilson, W., French, E., Wilson, F.

COUNTRY The Rhode Island Cross Country Team went winless in their first five dual meets this year. This was partially due to the injury of Ed French. French, one of the runners on last year’s team, returned to the line up and sparked the Rams to their first victory, over the Uni- versity of Connecticut. In the meet, U.R.I. took five out of the first six places. Willie Wilson, French, Bob Warren, Karl Steimle, and Arnie Robinson were the top five runners for Rhody in the meet. Fred Wilson, Wayne Nordquist, Dave Dunn, Bill Fishburn, Dick Marciano, and Carl Rietz, also turned in some fine running this year. Next year’s team should be aided by the members of this year’s freshman club, who finished a very successful season, lead by Dave Edmond’s. MacAloon, V., Steimle, K., Brennen, R., Lisa, C. This year, the U.R.I. Mile Relay Team enjoyed another highly suc- cessful season. This year, as was the case last year, Rhode Island was again rated the number i relay team in New England and was one of the finest in the East. Starting the season in Boston, Rhode Island defeated a very pow- erful Syracuse team. Two weeks later, competing in the annual B.A.A. games, Rhode Island was pitted against all New York Schools and again came home a victor over such formidable foes as Seton Hall and Fordham, the latter which had placed 3rd in the National Indoor Championships in Madison Square Garden. Two weeks later, Rhode Island again appeared before 14,000 people at Madison Square Garden, and although the team was weakened by having two of its members stricken with the flu, it defeated Providence College and a strong Maryland team. Art Zarrella Dutch ]ac quart John Joyct 216 George Cushmac TRACK Sarkis Kojain Competing in the National Indoor Championships, Rhode Island failed to qualify for the finals through poor seeding of the teams. Its time was good enough to qualify in almost any other heat. The fol- lowing week, Rhode Island participated in the annual Knights of Columbus meet at New York, where it again, ran another fine race. Its opponents were: Bates, Georgetown, Syracuse and Maryland. Another promising sidelight is that every member of the starting team will return next year. Lisa and McAloon are juniors, while Brennan and Steimle are both sophomores. Next year, Rhode Island again is expected to reign as one of the better teams in the East. BASEBALL ’59 The first two games of the 1959 season were cancelled as a result of rain and wet grounds. The Ram nine planned to open the season at Springfield, but the game was called off after an hour and a half delay. The home opener against Northeastern was also cancelled because of wet grounds. The games were not rescheduled. Rhody finally got the baseball season under way at Amherst where they lost a 10-2 Yankee Conference game to the University of Mass- achusetts. The Redmen jumped off to a quick 2-0 lead in the first and held the lead until Rhody tied it up in the sixth. UMass. bounced back and picked up seven runs in their half of the sixth and one more in the eighth. Don Harrington and Bob Peltier had two hits apiece. Tony Rao was the losing pitcher. The University of Connecticut handed Rhody its second straight Yankee Conference defeat by the humiliating score of 23-4. Rhody was held to four hits, while four Rhody pitchers were shelled for a total of 23 hits. Roger Pearson collected two of the four Ram safeties. Brown tagged Rhode Island for Rhody’s third straight defeat by a score of 6-2 in the first home game of the season. In the eight with the score 4-2 Rhody loaded the bases with one out, but relief hurler Dave Manson retired the next two Rhody batters and retired the side in order in the ninth. Tony Rao, Rhode Island’s starting pitcher, collected two of Rhody’s five hits. Vermont visited Rhode Island on April 24 and 25. Vermont won the first game by a score of 6-0. Rhody’s Pete Kearns broke up Ross Arters bid for a no-hitter when he singled as a pitch hitter in the ninth with one away. Bobby Humphrey, made his first start of the season on the mound and pitched very well except for a five run fifth inning. On the following day the Ram nine picked up their first victory of the season as they whipped Vermont 8-4. Tony Rao went the dis- tance for U.R.I. The Rams broke up a 3-3 tie in the seventh by scor- ing three runs on a walk, an error, and two hits including a double by Bob Peltier that drove in two runs. Rhody added two more in the eighth. U.R.I. traveled to the University of Maine the following weekend only to drop both games of a doubleheader, each by one run margins. Tony Rao looked impressive as he went the distance in the first game, but lost a 2-1 decision on a ninth inning rally by Maine. One of Nick Trebisacci’s three hits, a double in the sixth, combined with a single by Bob Humphrey provided Rhody with its only run. In the second game, Bob Humphrey allowed only one earned run, but six errors and a couple of walks allowed Maine to register a 4-3 victory. Whitey Fell and Roger Pearson collected three hits apiece. Pearson hit a home run with one on in the eighth. In a return game with UConn, the Rams nearly upset the Yankee Conference Champions. Connecticut finally pulled the game out with a six run tenth inning and won it by a score of 12-6. Rhody trailed 6-1 going into the last of the ninth. In the ninth Rhody picked up five runs and would have won the game if an attempted squeeze play hadn’t backfired. The nine hit pitching of Rony Rao in 13 innings lead Rhody to a 4-3 victory over Providence College. Rao went 13 innings after pitch- ing nine innings the day before against UConn. Providence College broke a i-i tie in the first of the 12th by scoring 2, but a walk to Don Harrington and a triple by Bob Peltier followed by a bad throw allowed Rhody to tie it up. In the 13th Rao was hit by a pitch, received second on an infield error, and scored on two wild pitches. In a heartbreaker at Durham, N. H. the R. I. nine lost a 3-2 game to the University of New Hampshire. With two out in the last of the ninth Bill Marshall blasted a 340 foot homer for the winning run. Howie Levine led ofF the second and seventh with singles and scored both of U.R.I.’s runs. Bettez, Sheridan, and Humphrey com- bined to hold New Hampshire to seven hits and only one earned run. In a return game with New Hampshire, the Rams lost their sec- ond game of the year to N. H. by one run. The Wildcats scored one run in the ninth inning to defeat the Rams 5-4. First baseman Hugh Marshall of New Hampshire, led the Wildcats with three hits, in- cluding two doubles that drove in two runs and scored twice. Tony Rao was charged with the loss. Brown’s Dave Manson pitched a 7 hit, 4-2 victory over the Rams in the next encounter. This game was the last of the season for Brown and left them with an 11-3 record for the year, the best Brown record since 1919. With the victory Brown wrapped up its second straight state title. Roger Pearson lead the Ram’s hitting attack with three hits. Tony Rao went the distance for U.R.I., allowing only nine hits. Five Rams errors allowed Providence College to post a 10-3 victory. The victory was the second of the season for the Friars and the loss was the eleventh for Rhody. Providence out hit Rhody eight to seven, but some costly mistakes were capitalized on by the Friars. Roger Pearson was the big man with the stick for Rhody, collecting two for three. UMass. game on May 19 was conceded by rain after one and one- third inning with the Rams leading, 3-0.

TENNIS ’59 After a disappointing 2-5 record last year, Coach Tootel’s tennis forces rebounded to a respectable 6-5 record this season. The loss of senior Dick Haut this year undoubtedly hurt the team’s chances for a more successful year. Coach Tootel’s netmen split their first four games by losing to Hartford (4-5) and Massachusetts (3- 6), and by beating the Coast Guard Academy (5-4) and Providence College (6-3). In their next match Rhody was swamped by Trinity (1-8). The Rams won their next three matches against Connecticut, Maine, and Vermont by identical scores, (6-3), only to be drubbed by Brown (0-9). Rhody’s net forces split their two remaining games by beating New Hampshire (6-3) and losing to Springfield (2-7). In the Yankee Conference Championships held at Kingston on May 8-9, Rhody tied Vermont for second place while Massachusetts walked off with top honors in the conference.

Following a trend of gradual improvement over the last few years, the team has posted several very fine scores and defeated a number of formidable opponents. The shooters, coached by M Sgt. Howard Miller, and captained by sophomore Ted Dziok, consists of a strong complement of juniors and sophomores and shows great promise for the future. Taking their places with returning lettermen Elton Cohen, Bob Mooza and Bob Anson were junior Dave Webber and sophomores Bob Saunders, Henry Phillips and Steve Edwards. One of the notable achievements of this 1959-60 rifle team was a record breaking 1409 out of a possible 1500 posted in a shoulder- to-shoulder match. The record of this year’s varsity rifle team is impressive and a result of long hours of careful practice.

RHODE ISLAND CLUB The Rhode Island Club is an honorary society of varsity lettermen. The major function of the club is to bring the athletes closer together into a bond of brotherhood. Closely allied with this is the promotion of friendship and understanding among all athletes, coaches, fellow students, the faculty, alumni, and all others who show their interests in the University athletic program. The enforcement of all rules regarding the wearing of athletic insignias, which are presented at the annual athletic awards convo- cation, is a major responsibility taken by the club. A special recognition award, an honorary key, is presented to out- standing senior members. The latest item of apparel of the club was the initiation of the R.I. Club blazer jacket which along with the familiar R.I. sweater will distinguish the blue and white athlete wherever he may travel. 22 3 U.R.I. INITIATES HALL OF FAME The URI Hall of Fame was formally inaugurated with the old Master of Basket- ball, Frank William Keaney as it’s first member. Preceding the URI-UConn hoop tilt. Coach Keaney was cited as the foremost promoter of sports ever to have entered into the Rhode Island athletic picture. Members elected to this Hall of Fame must receive the unanimous vote of the Athletic Council, for outstanding performance in, or service to, the athletic pro- gram of the University. Coach Keaney revolutionized the game of basketball with his firehouse style offense which led to the NIT when URI basketball was in its heyday. Keaney ’s award was not for basketball alone but for his all around contribution to Rhode Island athletics in every sport that he coached. It was indeed fitting that this award was given to this incomparable and color- ful builder of men in the gymnasium that bears his name and which becomes the “House that Keaney Built” whenever his deeds and accomplishments are recalled. 224 Edward E. Puletz brought national fame and recognition to the L ' .R.I. campus dur- ing the spring of 1959 with his outstanding performance at the National Intercol- legiate Bowling Tournament at St. Louis. As an 18 year old freshman, Puletz teamed with Jim Davis of Pace College to win the national intercollegiate doubles championship. The Ridgefield, N.J. agri- culture student rolled games of 197, 153, and 241 contributing 591 pins to the win- ning total of 1167. Trailing by 65 pins going into the third game, Puletz chalked up the high single of the tournament to clinch the championship by two pins. By accomplishing national recognition in the bowling world, Puletz demon- strated that URI’S athletic expansion may realize glamorous dividends. The URI coed team won the regional championship and placed sixth in the country against fourteen other women teams. Members of the men’s team which finished twenty seventh in 56 team field were Puletz, Dom Mitcheroney, Daniel Confalone, Larry Wagner, Guy Alba and Edward Saddow. 225 Row : Regan, G., Edmond, J., Sullivan, B., Parise, T., Captain, Dauray, M., Norton, B., Reynolds, J.

The Women’s Athletic Association is more than the legislative body of women’s sports activities, it is also an organization which strives to promote interest in women’s sports, not for competition, but for development of sportsmanship and team work. It accomplishes these ends through interhouse and varsity competition. The W.A.A. also seeks to develop leadership in women students by offering them the opportunity to represent their housing units as members of the Council, and as team and head managers. Various activities which require organization and com- mittee work are also provided. Under the capable leadership of the Executive committee, the W.A.A. has spon- sored activities of varied interest. Among these are the basketball-badminton play- day, Door Decorating contest, and annual Banquet which terminates the year’s activities. The W.A.A. Council is composed of the Executive committee, team managers, head managers, representatives from each housing unit, and freshman member at large. Via officers and committees, the Council is primarily concerned with organ- izing the activities of th e W.A.A., nominating the slate of officers, tallying indi- vidual and house points, publicizing events, and in general, assisting the advisers in carrying out the entire W.A.A. program.

Under the capable directions of Bonnie Donnelly, the 1959 Tennis club had an active season. Although most of the games were rained out, the girls did practice quite faithfully, both on the court, and with the aid of the blackboard. On May n, U.R.I. was host to the high school tournament con- ducted at Keaney. South Kingston, West Warwick, and Barrington competed for honors. At the conclusion refreshments were served. Both coaches and students exchanged ideas and discussed improving their games. Everyone in attendance remarked on the success of the tourney and are looking forward to repeated invitations in the spring. 228 The 1959 hockey season began with the usual demonstration game as the east bank of the women’s athletic field became filled with eager freshmen. The honor club practiced every Monday night preparing for any outside games we would have. A team of Freshman women went to Warwick High School to play them to a 0-0 tie. The honor club team went to Pembroke and battled a fine game in the brisk autumn air. An invitation was received from Southern Connecticut State College to challenge them, but inclement weather changed our plans. Under the able coaching of Miss Kyvallos, we should see our varsity team become a threat to any of the schools with which the field hockey team will compete. Row : Randall, N., Mgr., Cook, S.

BADMINTON Badminton is a sport where there is a lot of enjoyment involved, and at the same time, affords an opportunity for each girl to participate in an individual sport. The Badminton Honor Club offers a chance to instruct those who do not know how to play, and increase the skill of those who can play. These “experts” are taught various advanced techniques. During second semester there is an interhouse to urnament in which the majority of the houses participate. This is a marvelous oppor- tunity for advancing skills on a competitive basis. If one sees unfamiliar female faces on the U.R.I. campus during the month of either March or April — do not be surprised. They are girls from different colleges who come to participate in a WAA- sponsored Playday. On Feb. 14, 1959, the basketball, badminton playday was con- ducted at Keaney Gym. A reception in the foyer followed. The play- day has become one of the major highlights of the badminton season. 230 © VOLLEYBALL Enthusiastic coeds practiced faithfully for the tense and games they finally played. became chaotic when new rules collided with the old. one which will show a record of many games won.

Here, in this humble edifice, U.R.I.’s coeds are defending the hoops. Last year, the fun-filled season began with the first game on Jan. 7, 1959, at New Haven State Teachers College. The games that fol- lowed were played with Salve Regina, The University of Connecticut and the University of Bridgeport. This year something unique has been initiated. Instead of the usual club team, Miss Crooker, with the aid of Donna Ballinger, divided the club into three teams. It is hoped that by this division more people will get a chance to play and that working units of players can become coordinated by playing together.

RIFLE TEAM Once again the University of Rhode Island Women’s Rifle Team has upheld its reputation for producing several excellent modern day “Annie Oakley’s.” Leading the expert sharpshooters is Cindy Petit with her outstanding average of 99. Closely following Cindy are Sandy Berthiaume and Lua Barnowich. After a long season of hard practice, the girls will show their marksmanship next fall when they once again become Intercollegiate. The Rifle Team is affiliated with The National Rifle Association, and through this organization our team has fired many postal matches, and in the past, in shoulder-to- shoulder matches with other colleges and universities. All Intramural Sports Trophy — Sigma Alpha Epsilon INTRAMURAL Tennis Alpha Epsilon Pi Horseshoes Phi Gamma Delta Norman Finizio pictured above holds the Intramural Sports trophy which is presented to the Men’s Organization that amasses the highest point total in all areas of Athletic Com- petition. S.A.E. won their league title in Football and Bas- ketball but lost both championships in the playoff games. They won the softball title and tied for second in Volleyball. Their winning total was 646 points. Sigma Chi finished second with 546, and Phi Mu Delta third with 467. Sigma Chi captured the foul shooting tournament for the second year in a row. Phi Mu was runner up with Sigma Nu third. The cross-country romp was won by Arnie Robinson of Phi Mu but Sigma Nu won the team championship. Jerry Creeden and Angie Ferrara paced Sigma Nu’s team which crossed the finish line among the first fifteen. Phi Mu’s grapplers scored nearly a clean sweep of the six classes in the wrestling tournament. Mike Traficante, in the unlimited class, Pete MacDougald, Felix Lombardi, and Charlie Nelson all were title holders. Beta Psi Alpha placed second and TEP third. Spring track was won by Sigma Nu, followed by Phi Mu Delta and T.E.P. Peter Guimond sparked the Sigma Nu forces with blue ribbons in the 100 and 220 yard dashes. Alpha Epsilon Pi won the trophy for tennis and volleyball. Barry Emanuel and Bob Missle were victorious in tennis while Barry Multer led the volleyball squad to victory. S.A.E. and Sigma Chi tied for second in volleyball while Theta Chi took a third. CHAMPIONS Softball Sigma Alpha Epsilon Volleyball Alpha Epsilon Pi Basketball Phi Mu Delta Sigma Alpha Epsilon walked off with the laurels in the soft- ball behind the strong right arm of Dale Brown. Brown pitched every game for S.A.E. as they won their league easily. In the playoffs Brown bested Skip Whidden of Sigma Nu 2-0 in a pitching duel. Burly Lou Placella knocked in both tal- lies for S.A.E. one with an inside the park homer. Sparked by Jim Cavanaugh and Vic Rebello, Phi Mu Delta went on to win the 1959 Basketball title by defeating S.A.E. by a score of 31-38. Other members of the quintet included Joe Giordano, Nick Trebisacci, and Ned Cunning- ham. Phi Mu’s overall record was 8 wins and 1 defeat. S.A.E. had finished the regular season undefeated but dropped the title game as they had done in the football final. Bob Warren and Dale Brown played well in the losing cause. Football Theta Chi The touch football league was decided in a hotly contested tilt under the arc lights at Mead Field as Theta Chi defeated S.A.E. 20-12 for the title. S.A.E. had gone undefeated through league play and had won their first playoff game against Phi Gam. Theta Chi who had lost to S.A.E. 6-0 during the regular season won their semifinal game to set the stage for a rematch. Led by QB Jerry Plumb’s passes and the defensive play of Bob Silvestri, Theta Chi clinched the championship. For S.A.E. Vin MacAloon, Skip Finizio and Buzzy Basilico per- formed well as did Aldo Sammartino and Jim Hill for Theta Chi. Joe Arruda and Charles King paced Phi Gam’s horseshoe team to victory over runnerup Theta Chi. Field Hockey Chi Omega W.A.A. Participation Trophy Alpha Chi Omega This year’s hockey tournament will never be forgotten either by the harried participants or the myriad spectators who lined the bank to watch. In the exciting semi-finals Alpha Chi played Peck four times. The initial game and two play- off games remained scoreless till darkness which made it impossible to play further. The last playoff game seemed to be doomed to the same fate as the others, but in an exciting second Alpha Chi scored a goal and prevented retaliation by Peck Hall. The events of the previous games stirred up excitement for the final game that was played between Chi Omega and Alpha Chi Omega. All speculated on the outcome of the con- test since both houses showed their prowess during previ- ous games. In the final moments of the game, Chi O’s Willa Lauder, swatted a drive into the goal cage and scored the W. A A INTER The Participation Trophy was won this year by Alpha Chi Omega. This trophy is awarded each year by the Women’s Athletic Association to the Women’s housing unit that has accumulated the largest number of points throughout the year. This is awarded on the basis of the number of mem- bers participating in relation to the number of members of the entire house. The points are given to each member for participating in both House and Honor Club sports, which are, field hockey, basketball, volleyball, badminton, softball and tennis. The trophy was first awarded in 1955 and Alpha Chi Omega has been the recipient each consecutive year. Unlike all other sports trophies, the Participation Trophy can never be retired. The purpose of this award is to instill enthusiasm and interest in Women’s Athletic events. only point of the game. They defeated Alpha Chi Omega and brought home the plaque. The softball tournament got underway on April 24, 1958 at the Women’s Athletic Field. Rhody was finally blessed with fair weather enabling the coed stars of the softball diamond to wield a bat. Cheers and cries of victory sounded across both diamonds as the games progressed. At the close of the season, E. R. Hall staged a gallant attempt against Alpha Chi Omega. After five innings the score was tied 12-12. Although the sun was setting, hopes didn’t dim and an extra inning was called. For a while, it looked as though another inning would be necessary to break th e tie. But suddenly, the game was decided. Sunny Nevin blasted a home run over the bank while another girl was on base and helped Alpha Chi defeat E.R. 14-12. Softball Alpha Chi Omega 236 HOUSE CHAMPIONS Hutchinson Hall Roosevelt Hall Basketball Volleyball Congratulations go to two freshman dormitories, Hutchin- son and Peck, who played in the final game of the inter- house basketball tournament after eliminating teams of upperclass sorority women! This goes to show that expe- rience is not all that is important in playing basketball. The final game was a thriller as Hutchinson and Peck fought to the very end. There was much excitement as Hutchinson finally won by a score of 18-17. After a fall season of practice, April, 1959 marked the open- ing of our interhouse tennis tournament. Although there are singles and doubles matches, there is only one trophy and only one recipient. In the three final exciting playoffs, Eleanor Roosevelt won the first two matches. To turn the tables and to prevent a landslide victory. Alpha Chi won the singles matches. In this final playoff game Chip Santagata beat Joan Taylor and won the interhouse trophy for Alpha Chi Omega. Shuttlecocks whizzed back and forth across the nets as interhouse badminton made its 1959 debut at Lippitt Hall. For the first time, the tourney was conducted on two nights rather than during the duration of the season. While the singles match was being played, Bonnie Don- nelly and Sunny Nevin bested Alpha Xi’s doubles team to win the doubles tournament. Chip Santagata defeated Bar- bara Lincoln to clinch the trophy for Alpha Chi. The inter-house volleyball season was brought to a close last year with Eleanor Roosevelt Hall victorious over Alpha Chi Omega, the previous trophy winner, in the final game of the double-elimination tournament. It was anybody’s game as the two skilled and enthusiastic teams went into the third game of the two out of three series. Players and spectators alike were tense and excited as E.R. battled to the finish. Records were made and broken each week as the women fought for first place in the co-ed bowling league. Chi Omega took top position as they defeated Alpha Chi Omega in a playoff match. These teams were tied for first place after the regular league season. Eleanor Roosevelt Hall placed third in the league made up of six sororities and housing units. With scores of 722 and 1957 Alpha Chi Omega won the honors in high team game and high team three. CO-REC Volleyball Alpha Chi Omega — Beta Psi Alpha Bowling Alpha Chi Omega — Phi Sigma Kappa Every member of the team is important, from the shortest to the tallest. The ball sometimes appears to rebound from the wall or ceiling, which often happens. This year it was difficult to determine who would win but after several close and tense games, Alpha Chi Omega and Beta Psi Alpha proved to be most skillful and expert in the volleyball game. Their victory was the result of defeating Phi Kappa Theta and Beta Epsilon. For the second consecutive year Theta Chi joined forces with Alpha Chi Omega in mixed doubles badminton. Bob Mah- ler and Chip Santagata played in League A and went on to win the tournament. Sunny Nevin and Don Feld rallied in League B but lost in the final match. This season’s tournament marks the second consecutive win for Bob and Chip who also teamed up last year. Next year’s competition should hold many surprises as the season progresses. The outcome should be a source of speculation. Badminton Alpha Chi Omega — Theta Chi 2 3 8 The bowling season was filled with cries of strike! spare! Competition grew keener. The rumble of balls speeding down the alleys and the banging of battered pins echoed through- out the Union game room. Phi Sigma Kappa and Alpha Chi Omega combined talents and captured the crown in both leagues. The competition took an amusing turn when these two victorious teams vied for the championship. The final winners were lauded for their excellent play. Under the capable leadership of Buz Basilico, Alpha Chi and S.A.E. staged many hard-fought battles. Many games were dotted with home runs by Skip Finizio and Lou Placella. The guys who coached at third and first were a constant source of strategy and amusement. Phi Mu Delta and Alpha Xi Delta were almost successful in defeating their opponents. However, in the final moments of the game, S.A.E. and A.X.O. displayed winning form and defeated their challengers.
