Text from Pages 1 - 288 of the 1961 volume:

foreword 1 1 is rather difficult in the year 1961 to bring a mes- sage of universal assurance to our graduates as other editors have done in past years. These are unusual times and any attempt to project into the years ahead with rose-colored glasses would be sheer folly. We live in a period that appears to be shaping new dimensions, new outlooks, new horizons, yet we find it impossible to exude the same confidence and optimism that has characterized URI graduates for many decades. We confess that we are at a loss to know how to anticipate the events of the future. In any event, the 1961 GRIST has been compiled and takes its place among the yearbooks that have recorded the history and activities of our university. We have tried to make an interesting book without losing the flavor of tradition and simplicity that has marked other volumes of class memoirs. Despite our cautious foreword and our general anxiety concerning the future, we are confident that URI graduates will meet the challenges of the times. It is our problem to secure a sense of order and stabil- ity in the future that confronts us and at the same time to fulfill the design of our personal lives. For inspiration we submit the following lines from Words- worth: “—Whom neither shape of danger can dismay, —Nor thought of tender happiness betray; — Who, not content that former worth stand fast, — Looks forward, persevering to the last, — From well to better, daily self-surpast: — Who, whether praise of him must walk the earth —Forever, and to noble deeds give birth, — Or he must fall, to sleep without his fame, —And leave a dead unprofitable name — —Finds comfort in himself and in his cause; " kingston, rhode island r - »g 5SS ; L— fL i the class of 1961 of the university of Rhode Island presents THE GRIST the honorable John A. Notte governor of the state of rhode island and providence plantations To the class of 1961 : I greet you at this time of fulfillment and re- newed challenge. You have sustained and proven the con- fidence reposed in you by your parents, your professors and the St ate of Rhode Island. Regard this academic accomplishment of yours as an event of great significance, but in the whole scheme of things, as your arrival on a new and solid plateau. At the University of Rhode Island you have received an excellent foundation of learn- ing. I say foundation because you will find that each day of your life, you will continue to learn. Your ability to gain from the experience of life will be based on the skills in thinking you have learned from your formal studies. Your ability to think, to analyze, ' and synthesize material, to search out facts will allow you to benefit from the knowledge and experience of reality. New heights of endeavor remain to be scaled, and you are now splendidly equipped for achieving the noblest rewards that life can offer. You will be successful if you continue to learn and if you hav e the moral and spiritual courage to stand and be counted. To take some position and stand on it. Greatness, success and happiness will come to those who have the courage to live strongly with their convic- tions. With you go my most sincere wishes for a rich, satisfying and rewarding life. dedication Dr. Mason H. Campbell 1894-1960 The entire university family deeply mourns the passing of an admired educator and warm friend, Dean Mason H. Campbell. His contribu- tions to the academic and research programs of the College of Agriculture during his 17 years as Dean stand as a memorial to a man whose dedication and sincerity were limitless and whose insight and ability were an inspira- tion to professors and students alike. The national reputation enjoyed by our College of Agriculture is a tribute to Dean Campbell’s record of service here. It is evi- dence, too, of the great personal popularity he enjoyed throughout the country. His ability to command respect, confidence and friend- ship prompted his colleagues throughout the country to honor him with election to many high professional offices, all of which prog- ressed under his able leadership. After his retirement last year, Dean Camp- bell continued his lifelong interest in agricul- ture and had been available at all times when faculty or students sought his advice or counsel. The death of such a fine administrator and teacher leaves a deep void in the college com- munity. But the affection and esteem which Dean Campbell earned throughout his life will continue to be an inspiration to all who have known him, and this is the richest legacy of all. Homecoming Queen, Carol Lagin and Capt. Roland Bettez. president’s message TO THE CLASS OF 1961: The end of your college career and the earning of a bache- lor’s degree are indeed cause for congratulations and celebra- tion. The green and sunlit years of college will for some of you be the pleasantest period of your lives, but I hope that they will not be the most exciting, or the most challenging, or the most productive. Important as college is, it merely lays the founda- tion for what comes afterward; college is essentially a period of growing and maturing in knowledge and in wisdom. You are now about to show yourselves and those of us who have tried to help you during these four years what this period has meant to you. The intellectual internship is over and you are now going into practice. If I could make only one wish for you at graduation time, it would be that you may find great adventure in life. For this it is necessary that into life’s conflicting demands and pres- sures, you take a good sense of values and a deep concern about the great issues in the world today. It is only when one ' s life has these at its core, that the crowding decisions and diffi- culties of one’s personal and professional life can be met squarely and effectively. You will have, I’m sure, great joys and inevitably some sorrows in your life, but the greatest tragedy for an educated person is a life lived in the opiate of security and creature comfort where little is ventured and nothing lost in any noble cause. The great adventures in life come to those with courage and with purpose. May you have both. But whatever you do and wherever your career takes you throughout the many years ahead, I hope that you will come back again to refresh your spirit at your alma mater and to share with us again your accomplishments and satisfactions.

Barron The completion of these four years of study, during which you have acquired skills and knowledge as well as the ability to employ these through reason, distinguishes you from the majority of mankind. This distinction im- poses upon you the moral obligation to use these faculties. Authority will be thrust upon you and the responsibility to administer it wisely. In serving, it will be your task to discern Beauty and Truth. This is God’s demand of us all. Under this yoke of service there is one thing you must not give completely — it is your Individuality, that unique combination of quali- ties which composes you and is for all time. Know it, cherish it, and defend it. For, from the struggle between Conformity and Self are born Poetry and Art. This is man’s gift to God. Robert A.

GIORNO 228 high street westerly, r.i. general teacher education delta zeta A decade ago thirty-five personnel of the U.S. Naval underwater Ordnance Station and the Navy Central Torpedo Office entered into a program of study administered jointly by the Navy and the Extension Division of the University. Most of the group were graduates of the 4-year Apprentice Machinist Course and had a burning desire to further their education. Because of full-time jobs, a necessity since all were married and had families, a regular educational pro- gram was impossible. In the course of the ten years many could not stand up to the strain of six hours of class per week throughout the year including sum- mers. As a result, only about one third of the original group will receive their degrees this year — the degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engi- neering. Messers. Ferris, Huttler and Ochab have been elected to Tau Beta Pi and Phi Kappa Phi. Seated: James F. Irons, Cletus V. Dennis, William J. Fitzpatrick, Walter G. Swistak, James R. French. Standing: Warren R. Neville. William J. Ochab, John F. Kane, Ernest R. Tonnes, Vincent J. Ferris, James 0. Banks, Joseph Huttler ass story freshman year . . . That first day on campus ... we all dressed up . . . parents helping us move in . . . traffic patterns in the dormitories . . . campus tours staged from the middle of the quadrangle via the pointed finger . . . classes started and “freshmen don’t cut classes,” and we didn’t — for a week . . . the first football game and we all marched down the hill “in a group. " We beat Northeastern that day 12-7 and we all went home happy. We had our first taste of the romance of fraternity life with an IFC innovation— Greek Week . . . “an oppor- tunity to promote better relations among sororities and fraternities,” quoteth the Beacon. We sat back and listened intently as President Woodward an- nounced his retirement ... we watched him accept a Sterling tea service, the student body gift at his final Convo ... his message, the development of a ful l appreciation of URI by students and faculty members. And Coach Keaney received his trophy at the Athletic Awards Convo. His service, 30 years of basketball coaching. His message, “get off third base.” Polo coats were being shed for raccoons . . . “ten pins” were coming. Football ... we were out to jeopardize the pre-season predictions . . . downed Maine 25-7 and beat New Hampshire with Adams scoring. ECAC All East Team selected John Gerlach. Adams, McDaniels, Mairs, and Warren led Rhode Island to a 32-7 victory over the Judges. And the " Cinderella” Rams went on to take UMass 27-13 . . . TD’s by Mairs and soph Bill Poland ... but the winning streak vanished as we succumbed 21-0 to Brown . . . post-game parties all over Providence and some of us went. A good omen for the future. The Aggie Bawl was our first major dance. Kathy Mooney reigned as queen. We took time out to choose our leaders and elected Dick Reynolds to the presidency.. Sorority rush began . . . parties and more parties. “Is it all right to wear the same gown to two different formals?” Bids came out and when the dust had settled and the tears were dried there were 122 pledges. The girls went to the Union in their new jackets. Mil-semesters and the flu epidemic . . . what a combination. The infirmary was bulging, and even “Mary of Scotland” was delayed. Kathy Doyle was the Homecoming Queen. A wet campus plus a 14-0 defeat. DZ, Theta Chi, and SAE copped the display awards. UConn and a Ram moral victory . . . we held the Huskies to a 0-0 tie. The familiar forewarning followed by the inevitable party crashing. Greek Week ... the IFC Sing and Theta Chi took the honors . . . Herb Pomeroy’s “Living H istory of Jazz” . . . Fred Katzenstein as “Appealing Appollo.” “The Philadelphia Story " at Quinn, starring Mickey Kane and Jay Draper. WSGA inaugurated its Career Day. Finals came and we found that you can’t cover course work in an hour . . . Second semester and resolutions to keep up with studying. The girls got a 10:30 one evening a week and spent every Tuesday night in the Union. The Arts and Sciences faculty-curriculum evaluation forms ... we were the judges this time. The Sachems cancelled Rhody Revue, but “Brigadoon” compensated. Dianne Dickerson and Pete Taudvin shone. Fraternity rushing started and the boys got awfully tired of ice-cream pie and coffee. 162 pledges and more celebrat- ing. Headlines: DR. FRANCIS H. HORN NAMED NEW URI PRESIDENT . . . A week later, we packed Keaney to hear Dr. Woodward speak at his last Convo . . . " In Retrospect and Prospect” ... his voice of experience told us that today’s student is decidedly superior in financial resources, interest in current affairs and world issues, personal appearance and social adaptability. Pan-Hel’s “Sorority Slave Day " and a female labor force took over the campus . . . Car Wash 75c . . . Shoe Shine 10c ... the males gloated and the girls worked. Preregistration ... $10 to change a course? Beach days ... cut classes and red faces went hand in hand. Then the search for summer jobs and the year was over too soon . . . sophomore year . . . This year we guided the freshmen instead of being guided and it felt good . . . the freshmen outnumbered us by almost a hundred. The school was growing. The campus had changed ... we were suffering growing pains . . . ■■■ holes and mud marred our paths — we were putting our five million to good use — new women’s and men’s dorms, child development center, classroom and administration buildings, apartment buildings — and even a new infirmary. Honors at Entrance program for freshmen . . . John Duffek emceed Rhody Night . Dr. Francis H. Horn became a familiar campus name . . . Convo, and we listened anxiously — this was the first meeting with him for most of us. He stressed three qualities of the liberally educated individual: “rational judge- ment, independence in thought and action, and commitment to high values.” We were impressed, and we waited and hoped. Sororities inaugurated a new first — three week rush. (Campus Romeos frowned: no dates). We wondered how the seniors could be blase about the whole thing. Fears, smiling faces, a pin, and pledges. Football rallies and a new beanie . . . President Horn even threw his into the fire. The BEACON introduced us to the new family at 56 Upper College Road. Coach Herb Maack was faced with a line building job. Surprise opener with the Huskies ended in 26-6 defeat. Don Brown and soph Roger Pearson starred. Rams went on to succumb to Maine 37-8 but overcame New Hampshire 20-13. Judges were trounced 52-22 by the Rams to even our record at 2 and 2. Offensive stars were John Rollins, Bill Poland, and Pearson. Massachusetts upset 24-8 by the Rams. But the Bruins rolled over Rhody 47-6 ... we compensated at the now-traditional parties. Pearson, Poland, Brown, and Gene Peck led the Rams to a decisive 28-14 count over Springfield . . . but UConn overpowered Rhode Island to finish the season . . . 36-8. Rhody led at halftime, but Connecticut’s strong second half surge clinched the victory. Class elections and few of us took an interest. We chose Herb Simmons again, along with Gail Collins, Veep, Mike Hoffer, Treasurer, and Judy Feroce, Social Chairman. Kathy Doyle was our lovely Aggie Bawl Queen. Honors Day Convo . . . " Who’s Who and 22 familiar names . . . Kappa Psi and Chi 0 — highest scholarship for the Greeks. URI election coverage with Brown and PC . . . DelSesto buttons all over the campus . . . Democrats controlled the house. The econ department was overjoyed. Don Carlson’s " Dirty Work at the Crossroads” — student directed and produced, and well received. We were featured in the “Brown Daily Herald.” The BEACON retaliated, “Competition between rival institutions is a healthy situation — but only when it can be carried on in an ethical manner.” Homecoming and a cheer for the Queen — cheerleader cap- tain Jane Ann Berghman . . . record crowd of more than 5000 ... we suc- cumbed to the Huskies, who captured the Yankee Conference with a 36-8 victory . . . Rams gave their all and we managed to hold out till the third quarter. Rollins, Pearson, Brown starred. Phi Gam ' s “Husky on a Hot Tin Roof " took the lawn display cup. Sigma Chi and Phi Mu captured second and third places. A Chi 0 won the float competition with “Sleigh the Huskies” — Chi 0 2d, DZ 3d. University Theatre’s " Inherit the Wind,” with Peter Bradley and Lyndi Cooke. First annual Pharmacy Clinic . . . Campus Chest Drive hit a new high . . . Convo and Richard Thomas discussed Russia. The BEACON replaced “Greek World” with a socal column, “The Party Line”: many comments. Basketball prospects looked good ... the team was captained by Tom Harring- ton, ’57 Y.C. runner-up in scoring. But we were downed by BC and Fordham. Christmas spirit cheered Rhody . . . Mother Nature obliged. The campus looked beautiful, but it was rough trudging across the Quad. WAA’s Xmas Door Display Contest . . . Parties for underprivileged children . . . fraternity formals . . . pre- Xmas parties . . . vacation time and second semester. Organizational elections ... our time was coming. The spring costume dances — Fijiland, Roman Holi- day, Beaux Arts, Seaweed Shuffle, Barbary Coast — we made the rounds. Beach days again, and not enough of them. Senior week — some of us crashed it. Then, suddenly, exams and endless cramming, and we were home. junior year . . . We wondered how the freshmen could be so young . . . Did we look like that? PIK became affiliated with KSK. Football season . . . Poland and Morey led the Rams to an 8-6 upset over Northeastern . . . Maine battled to a scoreless tie ... our first defeat of the season at the hands of UNH, 45-0 ... not many vie parties that night. But we beat Brandeis 20-0 and UMass 30-6 Menezes, McCormick, Lombardi, and Rollins looked good. But Brown was too much . . . URI bowed 6-0 in the “Mud Bowl” ... the rooters had a hard time deciding who was on whose team. Springfield beat us, too . . . 21-0 on a wet Home- coming Day. Kate Winfield was the Queen . . . Alpha Xi and TEP won the dis- play awards. Frank Morey and Bill Poland named to All Yankee Conference team ... we became world-conscious when Premier Khrushchev made a widely publicized visit . . . with few good results. The new student apartments were fully inhabited . . . sorority girls lucky enough to move in think, “This is the life!” Boris Bell became the new Director of Student Activities ... Dr. Berry went to Stamford. Two new buildings, Woodward and the Administration Building, opened up ... we heartily approved of the new working conditions. Rameses I arrived, the gift of the class of 1958 . . . AEPi volunteered for guard duty on the night before the Brown game. The theatre season opened with “Ring Around the Moon” . . . new faces in the footlights. Rena Pazienza was named queen of the Aggie Bawl. More construction and expansion . . . ground was broken forTEP’s $40,000 addition. Sorority rushing and we began to lose interest . . . Pan Hel’s new system gave us 139 pledges. Dean Browning, “URI’s elder statesman, " retired from his duties with the College of Arts and Sciences . . . fifty years of affiliation with the school. The Pier was pretty dead . . . even Donnelly’s was boarded up. Exams were upon us, and we hadn’t even a Read- ing Day to spend in the Union. The Mil Ball opened the social season of the second semester . . . Patti Page was the Queen . . . Scabbard and Blade pledg- ing was impressive. We took over the reins of the campus organizations ... it was our turn, and we felt the responsibility . . . Pete MacDougall in the Senate, Bill Newman headed the BEACON, and Austin O’Toole took on the GRIST . . . reluctantly. The Junior Prom at the Biltmore . . . Herb crowned Bobby Sanders. “Carousel” with Judy Worrell and Mike Kroian was a smashing success, but the stage wasn’t the same without Bradley. Sachems tapping, and we were overawed ... is it really our class? Senior year seemed awfully close . . . it was a good spring, to the gratification of the sun-worshippers. We went to Senior Week and thought of our own ... we planned our schedules so we could have an easy senior year . . . finals again . . . graduation . . . and then we became the campus leaders. senior year . . . The final stretch . . . this was our last year and we resolved to make the most of it ... we heard war stories over and over from the summer camp heroes. Class elections ... we elected Bob Parente. Carol Lagin was Homecoming Queen, crowned by Captain Rollie Bettez at halftime. But we lost the game . . . wonderful parties. Next year we would be returning ... it was hard to believe. Sittings and retakes by Loring in the Union . . . “But it doesn’t look like me!” Appointments with the Placement Office . . . more forms to fill out . . . inter- views . . . Davis Hall meant success or failure. “Well, I reached the second plateau.” Sorority rushing ... our last year. We thought of it with mixed feel- ings of relief and regret. Preregistration for the last time! Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties . . . the last chance for many of us to be together. We spent the vacation with trips to companies or to Florida. One more set of finals . . . a sigh of relief. Flunk second semester seniors? Not a chance. But just in case . . . Soon the junior were taking over the gavels and typewriters . . . Good Luck! Fraternity bids and the last time for spring dances . . . graduation was getting awfully close. Our last finals, then senior week with all of its bittersweetness . . . the picnic and the beach party and the dances . . . graduation practice and then graduation and we were alumni. We took memories with us, though . . . memories of golden days and things we’ll never forget . . . dances and parties . . . beachdays . . . midnight bull sessions . . . last minute cramming for finals with the hour-long coffee breaks in the Union . . . farewell to the old Union forever . . . those endless lines ... the campus after the first snowfall and the snovyball fights that followed ... the trays from Lippitt. The good and the not so good . . . yes, these are the golden days we’ll always remember. 97 panhellenic association Row 1: Carr, R., pub. chairman; Rifkin, L., sec.; Nelson, L., pres.; Anderson, C., treas.

Modern day friendships, longlasting, never forgotten, always a part of us as is our motto . . . " We Live for Each Other.” Work ... on the homecoming float, with rush- ing (the reward— seventeen wonderful pledges), in Rhody Review, the Interhouse Sing, and all the rest of the activities that mean the Greek World. However with this work there is fun. The fun of climbing into short-sheeted beds coated with granulated soap powder or waking up to alarms ringing at 3:00 in the morning, a pledge prank. Studying ... ah well, that’s why we came to college. We give our best wishes to the seniors who are leaving. They were such an integral part of our chapter. r v Joan Wilkinson Sandra Field Elsie Palmgren Constance Allen Carolyn S.

Beta Alpha chapter of Delta Zeta said goodbye to its past housemother, Mrs. Randall, and warmly welcomed Mrs. Dove, our “freshman” house- mother, both informally and formally at a tea given in her honor. Many memories were in the offering of the new year; sophs moved in, and “w-e-l-l,” we studied, with “spirit. " Football ral- lies were bigger and brighter than ever— Home- coming, Brown, U-Conn. Then came basketball, 16 happy pledges, fraternity formals and a blizzard that cancelled classes. Christmas va- cation — some primed for finals while some headed north to ski. Finals over and a fresh start — firm resolve for that 4 point. Initiation, and then Eastern vacation ushered in fair skies and thoughts of Narragansett for an early start on that tan. Co-rec softball, lots of fun. And again finals come and go. Senior week, and graduation of 13 seniors who will surely be missed. Summer seems long as June begins but soon green blazers and tanned faces meet again with news from the summer and plans for the coming year.

Fall semester brought football games and pep rallies with us winning first place in the rally competition. Then our adorable " Snoopy” helped us to place third in the Homecoming float display. We received our national philan- thropic award and a visit from Congressman Fogarty because of our gerentology projects. We had a successful rush perio d. Then came the snows — the results being broken windows and snowball fights. Before we knew it exams were here. We studied and relaxed at the coffee hours. Spring Semester brought more snow and parties. Later there was the suave " P.H.”, the Interhouse Sing and the Rhody Review. Before we knew it, beach days were here and we all migrated to the Pier to get that first tan. Then Senior Week plans were completed — the con- clusion being graduation for many of the Sig- mas. We will miss you all and the good times we had as Sigmas Together. Good luck and good fortune in the future years. Good-bye, seniors.

Dean of Men The Interfraternity Council, originally formed as the Polygon in 1911, has made many ad- vances in recent years. The I.F.C. has increased cooperation among fraternities, has fo rmulated rules and procedures for rushing and pledging of new fraternity members and as a regulator of fraternity affairs. It further serves to insure cooperation between the fraternities and the university administration. Serving as faculty advisors to the I.F.C. are Dr. John F. Quinn, Dean of Men, Henry A. Dux, Assistant Dean of Men, and Dr. Edward M. J. Pease, faculty advisor. Within the last year the I.F.C. has taken a step forward in its own administration. The Faculty Committee on Fraternities, composed of fraternity faculty ad- visors and the Dean of Men, no longer must ratify action of a disciplinary nature taken by the Council for it to go into effect. The I.F.C. sponsors the Interfraternity Sing and Greek Week, also awards for scholarship and improvements within the fraternity. beta psi alpha Row 1: De Tora, S., Carson, G., Narciso, A., Buonomano, V., Andreoni, 0., Di lorio, E., Spicola, F., Ruggiero, A., Messore, J., Pichette, C.

These were the freshmen whom Ann Hutchinson Hall welcomed one Sunday in September 1960. Then, after only a few days in which the freshmen could get settled in their rooms with new surroundings and roommates whom perhaps they’d never known before, the upperclassmen made their return — their invaluable experience proved very helpful concerning courses, professors, homecoming, sororities, proper attire, and a number of other intricacies 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, neglected 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. Our first year — our first campus home — Hutchinson Hall — the beginning of four wonderful years at URI. Row 1: Cinquegrana, E.; Rossi, L.; Santagata, S.; Mancini, B.; Vallone, S.

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 Bawl, our first formal . . . Brown weekend and Home- coming . . . singing together . . . 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 exercising until dawn . . . History 7 . . . the familiar cry, “Who’s buzzer?” . . . warm spring days . . . studying on the beach . . . the " joys” of telephone duty . . . sorority sing and spring week . . . those upper- classmen who helped so much . . . our wonderful housemothers. 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.

A mad scramble for a little closet space, and we ended up hang- ing things on bunks and backs of doors. We were too bewildered to be cross, but that wore off soon and “Temper! " was the word of the day. We learned later how to squeeze and share. Sigma Nu and Sigma Pi found us out and we felt wanted. We learned to feel at home in the Union. The Aggie Bawl, rushing and pledg- ing, Christmas, the Mil Ball and Iggy’s — these were all a part of it. And by the time beach days arrived, we found that we had, too. We were a part of it. From green-as-grass freshmen to sophisticated sopho- mores. That’s our year at Tucker House. eleanor roosevelt hall 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 inde- pendent 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 Niagara Falls in the laundry (our 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 evenings 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.

The Student Senate is the official voice and government organization of the student body. The Senate is com- prised of over eighty members elected from the individual housing units and commuter organizations. The activities of the Senate are many and varied — running class elec- tions, approving of the constitutions of campus organizations, administration of the Student Tax Fund and a host of other duties which fall in the normal operation of a student governing body. The Senate is a member of the National Student Association and along with schools throughout the nation this past year has passed resolutions condemning compulsory ROTC and backing the Sit-ins; plus a broadened interest in national and international affairs in matters which affect “stu- dents in their role as students. " This year, the Women’s Student Govern- ment Association again strove toward fulfilling its main objects by providing a sense of co- operation, respect, and friendship among women students. The association consists of specifically elected officers, and the highest women officers from nearly every organization on campus. Some of the many annual activities for which the WSGA is known are Career Day, the Blue Book, organizing the Open House Activi- ties, and of course MERC Week. MacKenzie, M., V.

The big event each year is the annual banquet given in honor of those athletes excelling in their sports for all the lettermen and their fathers. Last spring, the banquet ' s principal speaker was Bill Beck, son of the former Rhode Island baseball coach and, in his own right, coach of the 1960 United States Olympic ski team. The immediate goal of the organization this year is the establishment of a convocation sponsored exclusively by the Rhode Island Club, with a well- known professional athlete as guest speaker.

A 12 to 16 page professional newspaper, it holds membership in both the Asso- ciated Collegiate Press and Intercollegiate Press. Practical experience in all phases of journalism— reporting, editing, make- up, photography, business, advertising, and circulation — is available to any interested students. The Beacon prides itself on being the voice of the U.R.I. campus. It seeks to promote greater interest in U.R.I. on and off campus, by presenting edi- torials, news, and feature stories and an open look at problems confronting a university and university students. 159 mmgw - fi||j|Jiu Vi m . mo 1 ■ L V | I f LSI J j .1 llrPmJt mM The University of Rhode Island Debate Council offers a diversified program of forensic activities. In the course of the year, the Council sponsors a High School Debate Tournament, a high school Model Congress and sends teams to intercollegiate debate tournaments in many states.

This group of students, with the sincere guidance and advice of Dean Morris, serves not to punish but to advise, with the primary interest that of helping women students adjust to college life and to its necessary regulations. 161 university theater The University Theatre has fast become one of the leading organizations on campus. With an eye to increasing interest and appreciation in theatre arts, the players’ group strives each year to present the University audience with the best possible in theatrical productions. This past year has been no exception. After proving their hand in Carousel, an all-University musical produced in Edwards Auditorium last spring, the Theatre moved back to Quinn in September, and began work on a challenging production program. First on the agenda was Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, then came Life With Father. The Theatre moved from Quinn to Edwards in January, and produced Rashomon and the year’s finale, Robinson Jeffers’ Medea. For members of the University Theatre it has been a profitable year: much has been learned and jobs have been well done. For the University audience the year’s productions have been polished, professional, and enjoyable. Many thanks to the director, Professor Robert E. Will, the technical director, Steve Travis, and all those who have made our adventures in drama worthwhile!

A special dance pro- gram was presented for the Union Coffee Hour entitled, “Moods in Movement.” This demon- stration was also presented for the University of Rhode Island faculty coffee hour. Miss Yose- pian conducted a Master class at Keany Gym- nasium for Rhode Island high school girls inter- ested in dance. The Senior Orchesis group pre- sented their dance demonstration to various high schools in the area. On May 12, 13, and 14, Senior Orchesis and the University Theater, respectively, gave performances as part of the Fine Arts Festival. 164 The Judo Club was organized this year by a group of students interested in learning and practising Judy as an art and as a sport. The club’s activities consist of practising the tech- niques of Judo and holding contests among its members. Judo is the art of hand-to-hand combat in which the weight and momentum of the oppo- nent are used to bring about his defeat. To really master this art requires many years of dedicated study. To aim for complete mastery in a campus organization is fruitless, and thus the objectives of the Judo Club here are simply to maintain an interest in the sport and to attempt to teach the fundamentals of Judo.

For the Christmas concert the chorus numbered 120 singers and filled the stage of Edwards to overflowing. The unique program was very successful. It performed with the orchestra, Charpentier’s “Midnight Mass” and a delightful setting of Christmas carols only performed in this country eight times. Secondly, the program included a selection “All Round de Glory Manger. " This work was in- scribed and dedicated to the University Chorus and its conductor, Professor Ward Abusamra. For its spring programs, the chorus sang in Worcester, Massachusetts with Clark University and Worcester Technological Institute groups. The University Chorus was host and also par- ticipated in the first Rhode Island Intercolle- giate Choral Festival at Keaney Gymnasium. The chorus encourages students from all the colleges of the University to participate in this worthwhile activity. Its aim is to sing music representative of the various periods and styles of history from the early 17th century to pres- ent day composers, keeping in mind the task of education is to present the best of music, be it serious or light, popular music. 167 band “The U.R.I. marching band came on with all the zip and spirit of those big outfits.” (Quoted from John Hanlon ' s “Sportscope,” the Providence Journal, Brown-U.R.I. game.) After the Connecticut game, the president of the Con- necticut marching band wrote: " It is the general concensus of opinion here at Storrs, that yours is by far the best band that has appeared here in quite some time. " Truly, our band was an enthusiastic and inspired one during rehearsals, half-time shows, and rallies. The high stepping drum major, Paul Mancini, and the band officers were invaluable in assisting Mr. Burns in the organization and preparation of band activities and performances. The first band banquet and awards program was honored by the presence of President Horn, Vice-President Browning, Dean Zorn, Dean Morris, Dean Quinn, Chaplain Green, and Professor Clair. This affair ' s success encouraged future plans to include a Spring Clambake April 29, a parent-student social after the Concert Band program April 16, and a two day pre-school schedule for the preparation of personnel for next year’s marching band. 168 majorettes 169 Row 1 — I. to r.: Kenny, J„ Sec., Macomber, W„ V.

Once the club got itself reorganized in the new quarters, club members resumed participating in the bi-weekly Civil Defense alerts held by the Rhode Island Council of Defense. The club participated in Operation Opal-60, the nation- wide Civil Defense alert on May 3rd and 4th. Club members, operating in shifts, manned the station during the two-day drill, maintaining constant radio contact with the State Control Cen- ters in North Scituate and at the State House. When Hurricane Donna whipped up a storm in R.I., the Radio Club was the only place on campus with electricity. Using the Club’s emergency generator, club members kept radio channels of communication open to state and local level disaster personnel. The club also participated in the Charity Bazaar held in Keaney Gym on February 17. Fifty-seven Radiograms were sent by people attending the bazaar, and donations were accepted for the Campus Chest Fund. As the Club’s activities began with a change in location, so they will end for this year. A move to new quarters is im- minent, and the prospects of a 120 foot antenna tower and a 5000 watt generator, to be supplied by the R.l. Council of Defense, make the prospects for the club’s future activity bright. 170 WRIU is a student owned and operated radio station operating at 550 kc. on the standard AM dial. WRIU brings to the stu- dents of the University music, news, special events, and spe- cialized training in radio station operations broadcasting tech- niques and technical operations. WRIU welcomes all students of the University who wish to learn more about broadcasting to audition. The philosophy behind the present operation of WRIU is simply that the sta- tion 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 person- ality development, as well as a facility within which he can find recreation and relaxation. wriu Row 1 — I. to r.: Hill, R., Treas., Hicks, B., Sec., Grossman, E., V.

Our purposes are to develop leadership, responsi- bility, and friendship among agricul- tural students; to foster a closer rela- tionship between students and faculty; and to promote projects of value to the University and the College of Agri- culture. The club’ s largest project is the annual and traditional “Aggie Bawl,” the University’s first major dance of the year. The club also as- sumes responsibility for the college mascot, Rameses IV. Among other ac- tivities are the annual Christmas party at East Farm, the spring picnic for the College of Agriculture, and the publica- tion of the " Aggie Newsletter.” The club awards, each year, tie clasps to the outstanding senior members and recognizes the outstanding Junior Aggie of the year. aggie club 172 Row 1 — I. to r.: Benson, B., Fairbrother, J., Higher, V., Adv., Coombs, K., Adv., Loughery, J., Tucker, N.

To do this, the club sponsors the Dairy Products Judging Team, the Dairy Cattle Judging Team, and the Poultry Judging Team. The members of these teams engage an- nually in competition with other col- lege judging teams of the northern eastern states. men’s commuters The Men’s Commuters Club was organized in February of 1958. Initially devoted to advancing facilities for the growing commuting element, it has, upon realizing its immediate goals, developed into a social organization as well. The men commuters’ officers, in addition to their regular duties, officiate over the club. The club maintains sight of its original purpose while entering into social and athletic activities. It offers men commuters the first really unified organiza- tion, for which their number has so long been in need. 174 women’s commuters The Women’s Commuters Association, using the old infirmary as its base of operation, has as its goal the extension of facilities for commuting women students. This constantly growing organization maintains a comfortable lounging, studying, and dining area affectionately known by its patrons as “the shack. " Partial realization of the Association’s ultimate goai has been effected through its representation on the two University student government organizations — Student Senate and W.S.G.A. Women commuters are also active in other campus activities and are proud indeed of their recognition in the Christmas Door Display Contest. 175 Row 1—1. to r.: Horridge, D., Garcia, H., Carter, E„ Clingham, J., I. to r.: Costello, B., Tillinghast, E., Argus, R., Hallett, F„ DeWolf, Mantecon, R., Sutton, K., Blank, P., Peck, W„ DeRuosi, J.

With Homecoming, came our chrysanthe- mum sale which was bigger and better than ever. Later on, we developed and carried out a community welfare program financed by the Sears-Roebuck Foundation; held our annual Silver Tea at the Home Management House for the American Home Economics Association’s International Scholarship Fund; and ended the year with a picnic of farewell for all our graduating Home Economics seniors. The officers and members of the club would like to express their sincere thanks and appreciation to Mrs. Goshdigan and Miss Kay, our advisors, for their help and guidance throughout the year. 178 Nutrix is a word derived from Latin meaning nurses. The purpose of this association is to provide opportunities through its activities and meetings, for all the nursing students at the univer- sity and in the clinical areas, to gain acquaintances and friendships, to gain a realization of being part of “The " pro- fession and to keep one group in touch with the other. Nutrix members also belong to Rhode Island Student Nurses Association to which most all of the other student nurses in Rhode Island belong. nutrix Row 1— Reynolds, J., See.

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 con- ducts both wet and dry meetings. Features of the dry meeting include guest speakers, films, and discussions of new developments in the fields of skin and SCUBA diving. The wet meetings are training ses- sions held at the Quonset Naval Station Pool. 180 Row 1 — I. to r.: Mollica, J„ Grant, J., Torman, L., Feroce, J., Sec., Reese, R., Pres., Gottsegen, S., Crowley, M., Treas., Quinn, R., V.

Information on world problems are presented to the campus via speakers, movies, and discussions. Delegates are sent to conferences of the collegiate I.R.C. and to meetings of the World Affairs Council of Rhode Island. The club attempts to interest members and others in foreign places, people, ideas and situations. The All Nations Club has taken a giant step forward in taking a very active part in the com- munity life of the University during this aca- demic year while at the same time it fulfilled the usual task of providing an opportunity to bring together the foreign and the few inter- ested American Students. It is hoped that in the years to come this organization will be in a position to perform the many duties that are expected of it in this ever growing University through mainly the support of the students. international relations club all nations club 181 Row 1 — I. to r.: Cimino, B., Collins, G., Viccione, D., Berliner, E., Waring, B.

We accom- plish this by inviting prominent insurance men from various fields of insurance to speak of their professions. Each semester 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 in- surance industry. Scholarship in insurance is fostered by two annual awards presented by Rhode Island Insurance Agents Association. insurance association 184 accounting association The Accounting Association was founded in March 1949, to supplement the study of accounting, to investigate the possibilities of employment for grad- uating members, and to promote social activities. Another purpose is to ac- quaint 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.

The campus Physics Society is a student section of the American Institute of Physics. One of its important functions is to initiate the transition from physics student to professional physicist early in the student’s career. Mem- bers of the society attend lectures given by members of the profession noted for their work in specific areas of physics. They are kept posted on scientific developments in their field through periodicals published by the parent organization. Field trips to scientific labora- tories give the student a three dimensional view of the work for which he is preparing. And last, at the campus level the Physics Society brings together students and faculty members with common interest who may discuss their work in an informal atmosphere. physics society Row 1—1. to r.: Davis, T., Mania, P., Willis, J., DeQuattro, A., Tavernier, R.

There are two guiding philosophies. One is the convic- tion 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 elec- tion to membership during the seventh semester. phi kappa phi 209 phi sigma The Alpha Chi Chapter of the Phi Sigma Biological Society was chartered in 1935.

At the start of the 1960 football campaign Ram coach Herb Maack was faced with the near impossible task of replacing three All- Conference graduates: quarterback Roger Pear- son, fullback Bill Poland, and tackle Frank Morey. Maack welcomed back thirteen lettermen from the preceding year’s squad and several outstanding prospects up from the freshman team — all striving for a starting position. Heading the cast of returning lettermen was Capt. Roland Bettez who was shifted from tackle to end. Also back were John Rollins, Bill Baxter, Bob LaRoche, Bob Humphrey, and Bob Matje. Outstanding freshmen up from last year’s squad were Marv Glaubach and Alan Arbuse, two tackles over 230 pounds and Hank Kapu- sinsky, a bruising halfback. The University of Connecticut Huskies, un- defeated in Yankee Conference play during the last four years, again were favored to cap- ture the conference title. The Huskies with their powerful backfield headed by Bill Min- nerly, Tom Kopp, and Jim Browning, appeared to pack too much overall strength for the rest of the conference, although considerable in- terest had been shown in Massachusetts.

D. as Billy Baxter carried over for the tally. The try for the conversion failed and the Rams led, 6-0, at halftime. Rhody struck again in the third period as Hank Kapusinsky scored on a 5-yard pass from Baxter and added two more points on the con- version try. With only 35 seconds remaining in the con- test, Mike Pariseau lofted a 30 yard pass to Paul Driscoll who made a circus catch in the end zone. After yielding a touchdown as a result of a first-quarter fumble, the Rhody Rams came storming back and posted a 22-10 victory over Springfield College. Ram defense gangs up on Huskie ball carrier. Baxter unleashes outlet pass for long gain. After long gain, Ram ball carrier is hauled down. With the Rams holding a seven point lead at halftime, thanks to touchdowns by Nick Grosz and Bill Baxter, Springfield tallied on a 37 yd. field goal early in the third quarter mak- ing the score 14-10. Rhody put the game out of reach in the fourth period as Glen Woodbury hauled in a pass from Baxter and romped 54 yards. When Grosz banged over for the two point conversion the score stood, 22-10, until the final gun sounded. The Ram’s defense was superb and they limited their counterparts to only 105 yds. rushing, due to the inspired line play of Scar- pulla, Bettez, Hoder, Glaubach, Menezes, and Arbuse. Game tension is evident as Rams watch the proceedings intently. Maine Upsets Rams, 7-0, In Thriller Bears Tally In Opening Minutes Fumbles Costly As Rams Bow, 13 - 6 Defense Continues To Sparkle For their third contest of the campaign, the Rams traveled to Orono, Maine, where they lost a heartbreaking 7-0 decision to Yankee Con- ference foe Maine on a touchdown scored in the opening minutes of play. After Dave Cloutier tallied the lone touch- down of the game, Rhody drove to the Black Bear two before being halted by a fine defen- sive effort by the Maine forward wall. In the third period, the Rams were stymied twice on touchdown drives deep in Maine terri- tory as the Bears rose to the occasion and halted Rhody on the 9 and 20 yd. lines. As the Rams hit the road for the second week in a row the feeling prevailed that the team would defeat Yankee Conference foe New Hampshire. But it was another day of failure as Rhody dropped a hard-fought 13-6 decision to the Wildcats. Huskie stopped short of a first down by Rhody forward wall.

Rhody drew first blood as Bob Hoder re- covered a Wildcat fumble and after moving the ball to the 7, Bob Humphrey smashed over for the score. The lead was short-lived as UNH drove for two scores and an extra point. Rhody’s last chance to tally was ended by a fumble deep in Wildcat territory.

The score was tied at 8-8 at the end of the first period on a 5-yd. run by Bob LaRoche and a pass conversion to end Bob Hoder. A 1-yd. plunge by Nick Grosz and a 54-yd. pass to end Glen Woodbury enabled the Rams to increase their halftime lead to 24-8. After a scoreless third period, the Rams countered with three more T. D.’s as Hank Kapusinsky ran back an intercepted pass 60 yards for a tally and Mike Pariseau fired two touchdown strikes to sophomore end Paul Driscoll. Defensive stalwarts for the Rams were Capt. Rollie Bettez, Al Arbuse, Ernie Menezes, Bob Matje, Phil Saulnier, Dick Swift, Charlie Scar- pulla, Marv Glaubach and Bob Hoder. Woodbury is hauled down after catching a Baxter pass.

Maackmen Stunned By Umass, 34-16 Mass Breaks Game ()|»en Willi Three TD ' s In I ' inal Quarter Playing an inspired game for the first three quarters before a Homecoming crowd of more than 5,000 fans, the Ram football team ran out of steam and dropped a 34-16 decision to the University of Massachusetts. With UMass leading 7-0 at the half, the Rams roared back on a 67 yd. punt return by Bob Humphrey. Baxter carried over for the two points and an 8-7 lead. After the Redmen bounced back with a tally, John Rollins bulled into the end zone for the score. His pass reception for the two points gave Rhody a 16-14 lead with 5 minutes re- maining. At this point Mass tallied three times within a matter of minutes on a pass inter- ception, a recovered fumble, and a long run, thus squelching the Ram’s bid for a Homecom- ing victory. This loss to UMass ended all aspirations that Rhody fans may have had for the Yankee Con- ference title. Rollins returns punt to 50 yard line.

Rhody regulars take a rest before ball changes hands. Brown University’s football team, scoring the first time that they had possession of the ball, rolled up an impressive 36-14 win over the Rhody Rams in their annual intrastate game. The Bruins recovered a Mike Pariseau fumble on the third play of the game and scored as Bobby Myles passed 9 yds. to end Dick Laine for the score. Ray Barry converted and the Rams were losing, 7-0. With Rhody again in possession Billy Baxter lofted a sideline pass which was intercepted by Paul Murphy who went 22 yds. for the score. Myles rushed over for the two points. The Bruins increased their lead to 22-0 in the second period as John Rohrback passed 23 yards for the T. D. and Barry added the extra point. With the half drawing to a close Charlie Vento engineered a Rhody drive to the Bruin 8 where he tossed to Glen Woodbury for the score. Rollins caught a pass for the two points and as the half ended, Brown led 22-8. Early in the third period Rhody struck again as Vento passed 5 yds. to Hank Kapusinsky. The try for the 2 points failed. Just as it appeared that the Rams had their opponents on the run, Brown struck back with sudden quickness and scored two T.D.’s within the next 4 minutes of play. This just about ended Rhody’s chances for an upset as they ran out of steam and could not muster another scoring drive. Finizio is caught from behind while teammate blocks out Bruin defender. UConn Romps Over Rams, 42-6 Kapusinsky Tallies Lone T. D. Playing their final game of the 1960 football season, the University of Rhode Island Rams suffered a crushing 42-6 defeat at the hands of powerful Connecticut. The Rams played inspired football and com- pletely outplayed their counterparts in the first period, which ended with neither team scoring. As the second period got under way and the Rams in UConn territory, a Tom Kopp pass in- terception led to the first score of the after- noon for UConn. Hank Kapusinsky then fumbled the kickoff and UConn recovered and pushed over their second touchdown of the period. With four minutes remaining in the half, UConn took over and drove for their third tally of the period as Jim Browning smashed over for the T. D., and the score was 22-0 as the half ended. As the third period got under way, the Rams commenced their lone touchdown drive as Chuck Scarpulla intercepted a UConn pass on his own 13 and ran it back to the 23. With a backfield of Baxter, Kapusinsky, La- Roche, and Humphrey moving the ball in for short gainers, the Rams scored their only touchdown. Baxter completed two passes to Kapusinsky and Glen Woodbury, and Finizio and Kapusinsky each ground out 12-yd. gainers as the ball rested on the UConn 5. From here Kapusinsky crashed over for the score. Baxter’s pass for the two points failed and UConn led 22-6 as the third period ended. The Huskies scored 20 more points in the fourth period while holding the Rams score- less. Only once did Rhody move into Husky territory and this drive was halted on the 2 yd. line. On the next play from scrimmage Gerry White took a hand-off and raced 98 yards for the score. Kapusinsky goes for long gain down the sidelines. Najjar tries to outdistance two Huskie defenders. BASKETBALL The University of Rhode Island basketball team successfully launched their 1960-61 hoop campaign with a one-sided 96-52 victory over Hartford University. Capt. Barry Multer and Dave Ricerto tallied 19 and 17 points, respectively. Two nights later the Rams traveled to Marvel Gym and edged Brown in a thriller, 78-71, as Mike Weiss came off the bench and scored 20 points. Ricereto contributed 21 points and was supported by Charlie Lee and Multer, who scored 23 points between them. Boston College, although pressed to the final seconds, outclassed a scrappy U. R. I. five for an 85-79 verdict. High scorers for the Rams were Ricereto, Lee and Multer with 21, 19, and 17. Coach Ernie Calverley and Downeast runner-up trophy. , u.

In their opening game of the Downeast Basketball Classic, the Rams edged Colby College, 67-66, in overtime as Charlie Lee and Dave Ricereto led all scorers with 19 points apiece. The outstanding rebounding and ballhawking of Gary Koenig proved to be the ingredients for the initial victory. In the second game of the tourney, Lee ' s nine consecutive points mid-way through the second half enabled Rhody to move into the finals as they eked out a 60-57 decision over Harvard University. In addition to Lee’s 15 points, Capt. Barry Multer and Mike Weiss contributed 14 and 12 points, respec- tively. On the following evening, the University of Maine Black Bears turned back the Rams, 69-64, in the finals of the tourna- ment before more than 6,600 fans, in spite of Lee’s sensational 33 point production. The score was tied on 12 different occa- sions and the lead changed hands 17 times. Koenig contrib- uted 9 points and 20 rebounds. Lee’s amazing play in the three games earned him the Most Valuable Player trophy as well as a berth on the All- Tourney team. Koenig was chosen for second team honors on the basis of his 57 rebounds — a new tourney record. Mike Weiss drives past Harvard defender in Downeast Tourney. SEASON’S HIGHLIGHTS After losing a 10-point lead at half-time, Rhody’s hoop squad lost to Fordham, 86-79, in overtime before 3,000 fans at Keaney Gym. Mike Weiss contributed his stellar play as he tallied 20 points. In displaying an impressive show of marksmanship, the Rams turned back Brown, 85-76, thus sweeping their home and away series. Sharpshooters Multer and Ricereto combined efforts for 47 points. On the following evening, the Rams roared back from a 34-37 deficit at halftime for a 77 -72 win over Yankee Con- ference foe, Maine. Multer and Ricereto’s scoring, together with Koenig’s rebounding, proved to be the formula for success. Two nights later the swift-moving Rams, playing with re- serves in the lineup for a good part of the game, outclassed the University of New Hampshire, 97-67. Lee led all scorers with 19 points. Paced by an awesome display of shooting power through- out the game, Rhody breezed to an easy 108-67 win over Brandeis University. Capt. Multer played a brilliant game as he tallied 25 points on 11 field goals in 14 attempts. In winning their third consecutive game in Yankee Confer- ence competition, the Rhody Rams, led by Multer and Lee, romped over the University of Vermont, 90-69. In addition to scoring 23 points each, Multer and Lee sparkled on defense. Weiss and Larry Schiner battle for rebound in Maine game. After holding a 2-point lead at halftime, Rhody unleashed a devastating second-half assault and downed Vermont the following evening, 75-48. Stu Schachter broke the game wide open with his spectacular set shooting. Following Lee’s 20 points were Schachter and Multer with 14 and 12 points, respectively. Against the 1960 N. I. T. finalist, Providence College, U. R. I. suffered its most heartbreaking loss in recent years as they were defeated in overtime, 68-66, before a near-hysterical crowd of 5,000 fans. Outstanding in a losing cause were Koenig, Ricereto, Lee, Multer, and Weiss. In their last game before the mid-year layoff, the Rams dropped a 74-68 decision to defending Yankee Conference titlist, UConn. Rhody was ahead at 2:58 of the final period before eight consecutive free throws by Dale Comey sewed the game up for UConn. High scorers for the Rams were Multer and Lee with 19 points apiece. Showing the ill effects of the mid-year layoff, U. R. I. came from behind in the second half and posted a 62-58 win over Northeastern University. Rhody was led by Weiss who tallied 10 points on five field goals and 10 of 10 from the foul line. Big Jim Hadnot outleaps Gary Koenig for tap in P.C. game. SEASON ' S HIGHLIGHTS Trailing by six points with only four minutes remaining in the game, Rhody scored 12 straight points and edged the University of Massachusetts 71-65. The Rams were sparked by Capt. Multer who contributed 14 points offensively and Gary Koenig who picked off 26 rebounds. Four nights later the Rams traveled to Providence and upset the N. I. T.-bound Friars, 78-76, as Stu Schachter and Mike Weiss provided the impetus with 22 and 19 points, respec- tively. Gary Koenig and Charlie Lee scored 27 points and picked off 25 rebounds between them. Led by Jack Foley’s 41 point production, the Crusaders from Holy Cross outclassed a scrappy Ram five, 96-72. Rhody trailed throughout the contest and could not overcome the Crusader’s shooting average of close to 60 per cent. Koenig led the Rams with 16 points and 12 rebounds. In warming up for their crucial contest with the University of Maine, the Rhody Rams scored an, 84-65, win over Yankee Conference foe, New Hampshire.

Tourna- ment, as they scored a, 76-66, victory over the University of Maine Black Bears. The other team led by more than 6 points in the game, and only after four consecutive free throws by Ron Stenhouse, with 1:35 remaining, were the Rams assured of the victory. In addition to Ricereto’s 22 points, Lee and Multer scored 16 and 12 points respectively. Mike Weiss (10), Stenhouse (9), and Koenig (8) completed the scoring. Georgetown University invaded Keaney Gym four nights later and defeated the Rhody Rams, 92-84, in a hard fought contest. After the lead had changed hands on numerous occasions in the first half, the invaders led, 48-46, at intermission. Early in the second half, Georgetown increased their lead to as many as 13 points but a final bid by the Rams fell 8 points short. Lee led all scorers with 24 points. He was aided by Ricereto’s 17 and Koenig ' s 12. On the following evening the travel-weary Rams had to come from behind in the second half in order to achieve a, 62-56, triumph over a stubborn Springfield College quintet. Koenig starred for Rhody as he tallied 12 pbints, 8 in succession dur- ing the second half splurge, and collected 16 rebounds.

The 1960 University of Rhode Island track team completed one of its most successful seasons in recent years, as it won four of five dual meets and captured the Yankee Confer- ence Championship in a meet held at the Uni- versity of Massachusetts. Outstanding for the Rams all season were Vin McAloon in the 440 yd. dash and low hurdles; Carl Lisa, dashes; Al Torgan, shot put and discus; Sarkis Kojian and Bob Patton, pole vault; Dick McClure and Bill Fishburn, javelin; Ray Kells, high jump; Peter Pella, hammer; Herman Jacquart, hurdles; and Art Zarella in the broad jump. John Joyce— High and low hurdles Stevie Newman — 440 yd. dash Four records were broken by Ram track stars during the 1960 campaign. In their win over Northeastern, Vin McAloon broke a 22-year-old Meade Field record for the 440 yd. dash as he ran it in 49 seconds flat. He also broke the Yankee Conference record with a clocking of 49.1. Four weeks later, with UNH providing the opposition, Herman " Dutch” Jacquart raced over the low hurdles in 24 seconds flat, which bettered the old U. R. I. record of 24.2. At the Yankee Conference Track and Field Championships held at UMass, Carl Lisa bet- tered the U. R. I., field, and conference records as he won the 100 yd. dash in the blazing fast time of 09.5 seconds. The final record was set in the same meet by Al Torgan as he heaved the discus 157 ' 1 1 " . This also established a new school, field, and conference record. With the return of many lettermen in 1961, Coach Russell is very optimistic about the out- come for the season.

One of the major reasons for Rhody ' s suc- cessful season was the excellent play of sopho- more Barry Emmanuel who went undefeated in singles play throughout the regular season. In addition to Emmanuel, the Ram net team was composed of seniors Bob Carlson, Mel Miller, Bob Keighley, Ken Slater, Bill Berman, and juniors Dan Libutti and Frank Cain. After splitting their first two meets of the campaign, the Rams won their next five matches in a row until Massachusetts broke the string of victories. Included in these wins was a notable one against a powerful Trinity College team. At the Yankee Conference Championships in New Hampshire, the Ram netmen placed fifth with a total of 10 points. New Hampshire, Vermont, and Connecticut tied for first with 13 points apiece. Frank Cain— Captain Opp. R.l.

The 1960 University of Rhode Island Cross- Country team was picked by many experts at the beginning of the season to finish last in Yankee Conference competition. Favored to win the title was either the University of Massa- chusetts or the University of Connecticut. This dismal prediction of Rhody ' s harrier fortunes was based on the fact that three of last year’s top runners graduated. With the graduation of Ed French, Bob Warren, and Willy Wilson, only Karl Steimie remained. Coach Thomas Russell was more optimistic about his team’s chances for the coming sea- son. A total of 17 candidates reported for the start of practice, led by returning lettermen, Capt. Frank Wilson and Steimie. In addition to these two top runners, Coach Russell counted heavily on Eric Phillippi, Bob Lund, Ernie Drew, Dave Edmonds, Danny Goff, Joe Marandola, and Frank Perrin, all members of last year’s freshman squad which lost only one dual meet. Bob Lund strains at the finish line of P.C. meet. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SEASON The University of Rhode Island Cross Coun- try team, with sophomore Bob Lund crossing the finish line in first place, dropped a 20-37 decision to Fordham University at Van Cort- landt Park in New York. Lund, a wiry six-footer, toured the five mile course in the time of 21:11.3 and won going away by 20 yards. Fordham’s depth proved too much for the Rams as the former garnered the next five places which assured them of victory. Rhody dropped their second straight meet of the season as they bowed to Springfield Col- lege, 21-34. Lund led the field until the final 25 yards where he was overtaken by Spring- field’s Paul McDonald. Capt. Frank Wilson fin- ished in sixth place while Karl Steimle placed seventh. For the third week in a row the Ram Harriers ran second to their opponents as the University of New Hampshire bested them, 19-42. The only bright spot for Rhody was the running of Lund who placed second behind Doug Mac- Gregor of UNH. The next four places behind Lund were captured by the victors who missed a perfect score by only four points. In quest of their first victory of the season, the U. R. I. Harriers were edged out by North- eastern University by a mere point, 27-28. The Rams displayed much more depth in this meet as their top runner, Bob Lund, ran second and was followed by Capt. Wilson, Eric Phillippi, Karl Steimle, and Ernie Drew who placed fifth through eighth, respectively. After four futile attempts at victory, the Rams won their first meet of the season as they bested arch-rival Providence College, 26-31. Lund’s third place finish, behind Bob Bam- berger and Stan Blejwas, was supported by Steimle, Drew, and Wilson, who finished fourth, fifth, and sixth, respectively. When Phillippi crossed the finish line in eighth place, the Rams were assured of victory. Brown easily defeated their Rhode Island counterparts, 15-50, as the undefeated Bru- ins swept the first seven places for a perfect score betore Lund could cross the finish line for Rhody. In their final dual meet of the season, Yankee Conference foe, Connecticut, handled Rhody with relative ease as they swept to a 22-42 victory. Lund again starred for Rhode Island, but the Ram’s lack of depth proved to be their downfall. The Rams ended their season with a record of one win and six losses in dual competition. Rhody surprised many as they placed fourth in the Yankee Conference Championship. Once again, Lund proved to be Rhody’s top runner as he finished in seventh place. C ' vfo.Vj BRB ilftS rePIra?

Row 2: Orban, J.; Hotter, M.; Moffet, T.; Rodan, H.; LeBreque, A.; Fish, R.; Soloman, B.; Silver, J.; Sevl, T. For the first time in U. R. I. sports history, soccer was initiated as a varsity sport. Under the dire ction of Coach William Baird, the soc- cer team was formed with a moderate four game schedule and one pre-season scrimmage. After a respectable showing in their pre- season scrimmage against Brown University, the Rhody hooters opened their 1960 season with a 4-1 victory over the Coast Guard Acad- emy, as Laszlo Siegmund scored all four of Rhody’s goals. The following week the Rams suffered their first defeat of the young campaign as they dropped a, 4-0, verdict to New Bedford, one of the top teams in New England. Rhody dropped their final two games of the season to Brandeis University and Hartford. The lone goal in both of these games was registered by Siegmund. Perhaps the most encouraging aspect of this season is the fact that 8 of the 11 starters and all of the reserves will return for the 1961 campaign. Graduating are Jules Orban and Jay Draper who played on the forward line, and Mike Hoffer, defensive fullback. Ram goalie sets to block attempted shot by teammate in practice session.

After having placed second in the Tech Dinghy Championships and fourth in the Fowle Trophy Cup races, the Ram skippers, led by Gary Winslow and Ned Caswell, embarked on a win streak which enabled them to qualify for a trip to Annapolis. On Homecoming day the Rams easily out- distanced four teams in winning their first meet of the season, and on the following Saturday, Rhody won a hexagonal meet at Cambridge, Massachusetts, as they amassed 67 points with Caswell and Winslow leading the way. In winning their third consecutive meet of the season, the Ram skippers outraced four other crews from New England colleges. Once again Winslow was the top point-getter as he garnered four firsts and one second. In their final meet of the season, Rhody con- tinued its winning ways in capturing its fourth in a row, thanks to the superb performances of Winslow and Caswell. With the fine showing of the Ram sailors this season, the outlook for next year looks exceedingly bright. Greg Arthur attempts to overtake team-mate Ned Caswell in a race on Salt Pond.

The Rhode Island baseball team of 1960 compiled a season record of 7 wins, 5 losses, and one tie, a marked im- provement over the 1959 team which won 2 of 13 games. Rhody commenced their season with a heartbreaking 3-1 loss to the University of Connecticut who, the previous year, were Yankee Conference Champions and semi-finalists in the N. C. A. A. playoffs. Despite a four-hit pitching performance by Rollie Bettez, UConn scored two unearned runs in the first inning for their margin of victory. The University of Maine then split a pair with the Rams on successive days. The Black Bears from Orono jumped on the pitching of Dave Ricereto, Tom Harrington, and John Sheridan for six runs in the six th inning and coasted to an easy 8-3 win. Harold Fell, Sal Augeri, and Capt. Roger Pearson got the only hits for Rhody in the game. On the following day, Rqllie Bettez spun a masterful four- hitter in setting down Maine, 4-2, for Rhody’s initial win of the season. Capt. Roger Pearson and Tony Verdi led the hitting barrage with the former knocking in 3 runs and the latter connecting for 3 hits. On April 19, the hustling Rams achieved a well-deserved 7-3 triumph over the Brown Bruins from Providence. This was Rhody’s first win over Brown in three years. Tony Rao hurled seven innings and only allowed four hits and two runs. The hitting attack was led by Don Harrington and Dick Hagopian who collected three hits apiece. The following day Rhody made it three wins in a row with a 7-4 verdict over a strong University of Massachusetts squad. With the score tied at four-all in the bottom of the ninth, Don Harrington stepped to the plate and blasted a three-run homer for the margin of victory. Dave Ricereto, who had relieved Rollie Bettez, received credit for the victory. FIVE MAJOR LEAGUE CLUBS Ram hurler, Tony Rao, sets to deliver pitch Three days later, the Rams faced Springfield College, one of the New England powerhouses. With the score tied at four-all in the last of the eleventh, Sal Augeri’s run-producing single broke the game up. Hitting star for Rhody was Don Harrington who collected three hits. Rhody continued their hard hitting and fine pitching as they coasted to their fifth victory in a row in downing the University of New Hampshire, 11-0, at Kingston. Rollie Bettez won his second game of the season as he went the distance. The hitting power was in evidence once again as Roger Pearson, Don Harrington, Alan Alarie, and George Cairo provided the batting power that was the undoing of three New Hampshire pitchers. The Rams coasted to their sixth win in a row as twenty players combined their efforts in downing the Quonset Flyers, 8-0, in a no-hit, no-run game. All five Ram hurlers had a hand in baffling the Navy hitters and Sal Augeri led the hitting attack with three straight hits and two runs batted in. Rhody continued its winning ways as Tony Rao pitched the Rams to their seventh consecutive win in shutting out Provi- dence College, 6-0. Sal Augeri and Capt. Roger Pearson proved to be the batting power for U. R. I. as they collected six of the twelve hits. After having won seven games in a row, the Ram baseball team lost a heartbreaker to the University of Massachusetts, 7-6. The loss was the first for Tony Rao as the Rams collected 13 hits with Sal Augeri getting a double and 3 singles. The following day Rhody moved into Burlington, Vermont, for a two game stand. The Rams were defeated, 3-1, on Friday night as three unearned runs beat Tony Rao who yielded only 6 hits. Tony Verdi led the hitting attack with a brace of singles. In an eleven inning ball game that was called because of rain, Rhody played Vermont to a 3-3 tie. The Rams scored a run in the top of the fourth to take a 3-2 lead but the home club countered with the equalizer before the rains came. A week later, U. R. I. traveled to Brown for the second game of their home and home series. They were shut out, 7-0, on the strong 4-hit pitching of Dave Manson. Don Harrington collected two of Rhody’s four hits. In the final game of the 1960 baseball campaign, the Rhody Rams dropped a 6-3 decision to Connecticut. The Rams were held in check by UConn pitching until the seventh when singles by Don Harrington and Tony Verdi, coupled with a walk and error, gave the Rams the tying runs. The tie was shortlived as UConn stormed back with a 3-run outburst of its own, sewing up the victory. GOLF The University of Rhode Island golf team successfully opened its 1960 campaign with a 5-2 victory over Trinity College with Rod Brus- ini leading the way with a medal score of 75. In their next match Rhody encountered a much stiffer test as they won over Colby, 4-3, thanks to an extra hole victory by Dick Gagnon. In a triangular match against the University of Maine and Bates, the Rams won decisively with Bob Fitta pacing the scoring with a fine 76. The scores were 6-1 over Maine and 5V2 to IV 2 over Bates. The undefeated University of Massachusetts golf team handed Rhody its first defeat of the season, 7-0, and left the Rams with a record of four wins and one loss.

Co-recreational and Interhouse Sports— Door Display Con- test— Orchesis — Open House— Intercollegiate Playdays— Fall Picnic— Annual Spring Banquet. Each of these functions is sponsored by the W.A.A. Coun- cil, composed of officers, head managers, house representa- tives, and freshman members at large, who are elected by the women students and under the supervision of the Women’s Physical Education Department. Culminating the season’s activities, is the spring banquet, at which time, the winners of interhouse tournaments are awarded trophies and individuals having accumulated the re- quired number of points, receive either the shield, key or W.A.A. blazer. Climaxing the evening’s events, is the presentation of a trophy to the outstanding senior, who over the four years has shown the greatest interest and participation in women’s sports at the university. Let it be remembered that every U.R.I. co-ed is and should be an active member in her athletic association to stimulate interest and opportunity for all. Row 1 : Steere, C., Mgr.

Matches scheduled with Pembroke College and R.I.C.E. had to be canceled because of inclement weather, but the spirit of the team remained undampened. Dr. Massey and Miss Mandell worked with the individual team members on style and technique. The results were quite satisfactory and this season promises to be a good one, weather permitting.

Although it is a relatively new sports at U.R.I., hockey is fast becoming popular under the able leadership of Miss Kyvallos. The hockey program offers experience through participation either on the honor club or interhouse teams. Also, there is a summer hockey session held annually at the Poconos Mountains, Massachusetts, which will be attended this year by twelve U.R.I. students. This past fall the Interscholastic Hockey Club played two home games against Pembroke College and the University of Connecticut. Three other games were played away at Bridgewater State Teachers College, R.I.C.E., and Elmhurst Academy. Even though U.R.I. did not win every game, many important techniques were mastered by those who participated. The Inter- scholastic program also included a sportsday held at Wellesley College where eighteen teams from New England competed against each other. It is hoped that an ever increasing number will participate in the hockey program offered each fall, for all those who have participated in the past found the experience rewarding. 245 badminton The Badminton Honor Club, under the direc- tion of a manager and a faculty advisor, offers girls who are interested, opportunities to im- prove their badminton skill and to learn the game. The club officially meets once a week in order to plan the schedule of the semester’s tournaments. Through various playdays and sportsdays that are held at Rhode Island and other colleges, the girls develop competitive technique and enthusiasm among themselves and their opponents. The club organizes an interhouse tournament during the season in which the sororities and the women’s resi- dence halls compete for a trophy in doubles and singles games. Being one of the few sports offered by the W.A.A., which gives the participants the thrill of individual competition in a winter indoor sport, badminton is becoming an outstanding favorite on campus. Under the dual leadership of Miss Mandell of the Women’s Physical Education Depart- ment and Joan Mason, Student Manager, volley- ball really hit an all time high this year. There were many Intercollegiate games held both at Rhode Island and away and next year promises to have even more exchange competition. Volleyball is one of the best loved sports of girls for it enables many to play and, although it is a game of excitement and fun, it also re- quires skill and accuracy— such as knowing where to place a serve, how to return a volley and many other tricks of the trade.

Tucker, N„ Jackson, J., Connors, S. basketball Basketball has been a popular sport since it was first introduced at R.l. College in 1908. It never fails to capture the interest of both spectator and player. Today at U.R.I., Lippitt Hall is still the scene of many a thrilling game. Honor Club is enthusiastically attended by a large number of students who practice faithfully under the guidance of Miss Crooker and Miss Kyvallos. The girls are trained in shooting techniques, court rules, and game situations. The many hours of practice paid off when U.R.I. played host to Salve Regina. The games played were close and well played. Each team winning one game. Yet to be played are games with UConn, Sar- geant, and R.I.C.E.: each promising to be a match of skill and good sportsmanship. Honor Club basketball is open to any girl who has the interest and love for one of Ameri- ca’s oldest sports. 248 rifle With a challenging spirit and proven markmanship, the University of Rhode Island Women’s Rifle Team started off another season with a bang. Several of the sharpshooters showed their tal- ents in the many intercollegiate rifle matches, both postal and shoulder-to- shoulder. Each girl, of course, aiming for that coveted perfect score. Unknown to many the U.R.I. team is affiliated with the National Rifle Asso- ciation, and through this organiza- tion, our team has fired many postal matches. The girls hope to arrange sev- eral shoulder-to-shoulder matches with other schools for the spring semester in order to foster healthy competition and to bring honor to the university. 249 Participation Trophy Sigma Kappa The W.A.A. Participation Trophy among the many is the most coveted. Repre- senting the most participation by one housing unit in women’s athletics, under the veil of good sportsmanship and sincere effort by the individual team mem- bers, this honor for the year 1960-61 has been awarded to Sigma Kappa sorority. Our heartiest congratulations for their fine performance and interest in furthering women’s sports at the University of Rhode Island. Fostering competitive spirit between housing units, the W.A.A. Interhouse Tournaments were highlighted with many tense games and spectator thrills during the 1960-61 season. With a clash of hockey sticks, the fall season of events got under way. The double elimination tournament ran late into the season because of the battle between Chi Omega and Alpha Chi Omega. It is noteworthy that these two teams have always shown exceptional skill on the hockey field, with Chi Omega being victorious the last two years. This year, after another set of hard fought games between the two houses, Alpha Chi finally defeated Chi Omega in the last few minutes of the game with a goal by Sue Johnson. The final clash pitted Alpha Chi Omega against an equally strong team from Beta Epsilon, with the girls from Alpha Chi making the winning goal. With the winter season set upon us, interhouse action now turned to Lippitt Hall, first for the individual tournament of badminton. Little Campus easily dominated the singles matches with six straight victories to carry away the trophy for their housing unit. Mention should be made of Eleanor Roose- house champions velt’s victory in the doubles matches. Their fine playing and enthusiasm placed them on top; however according to the governing rules of the tournament, the final trophy is awarded only to the singles winner. With a quick change of nets, we find ourselves in the middle of wild and smashing competition for volleyball honors. Again the Greek world and upper- classmen suffered defeat at the hands of one of the housing units, Eleanor Roosevelt. With a skillful- combination of freshmen and upperclassmen, E.R. scored victory after victory, to recapture the winners trophy for the second consecutive year. As soon as the volleyball nets were taken down, the basketball tournaments got under way. All teams were in good form with Sigma Kappa remaining un- defeated until finals. Since the freshmen had again shown a great deal of interest, Hutchinson Hall wound up in the final eliminations battling it out with Sigma. In the semi-finals, Hutchinson was able to win a grueling game against Sigma; had Sigma won the game, the trophy would have been theirs because of the double elimination rule. However, a final game had to be played between the two teams and it was a well fought game, with Hutchinson Hall victorious. Another credit to the freshmen. Spring set the background for the softball tournament games which were well attended and well played. All the teams showed a great deal of enthusiasm and the end of the season found Chi Omega and Little Campus battling it out for top honors. In the last inning of the final game the sluggers from Little Campus batted across three runs to win out over Chi Omega with a close score of six to five. After a fall season of practice, the opening of our interhouse tennis tourna- ment was marked with much activity. Although there are singles and doubles matches, only one trophy is awarded to one recipient. In the final exciting playoffs, Peck Hall was able to capture the trophy under the excellent playing abilities of Ann Bertozzi and Ann Haber. With records being made and broken each week, Chi Omega and Hutchinson Hall battled it out for top honors. Exceptional playing ability was displayed by Ann DeGoey who had a high single score of 208, Jeanette Peretta scored 547 for the highest three game total, Chi Omega had the highest total pinfall of 2105 for three games, and Hutchinson Hall with a total of 754 for high score in one game. Doris Vanderbeek maintained high average for both semesters with 133. With Chi Omega taking first semester honors and Hutchinson Hall, a new- comer to the bowling league, capturing the second semester lead, a thrilling playoff was held between the two teams. Again the freshmen triumphed with a well fought victory.
