CLASS oonr DAuc; FYIT UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND OFFICE OF THE lECISTEAl REGISTRAR COPY A question that’s been asked before, but think Do we really allow ourselves to have such serious doubts about “our education?” Do we really question what’s happening around here at all? Start with the cycle of registration enough to make us all go completely insane (or at least be- lieve that we are), pushing and shoving and com- peting to be first through those golden doors, waiting for hours on line only to hear those two glorious words — “CLOSED OUT.” Knowing you might if you’re fast enough and lucky enough, be able to get a seat in a second or third choice class, and finally ending up having to sell yourself, body and soul, to get into the courses that “you really need” or “just must get into!” Damn it! This is the norm. But, asked very sheep- ishly . . . what can ya do? WELL, WHAT CAN WE DO? 17 19 English 252A met in a second floor lounge this year. The quality of education has nothing to do with the environment in which it is taught; rather it depends upon whether the students want to learn or not. Or so the administrators say when asked why there are so many problems with education to- day. And when the University asks the in- structors about these problems, the instruc- tors say, “the students don’t give a damn.” Whereupon the Administration has an out; it is the students’ fault. Ask a student why there are so many problems with education here at U.R.I.; he will most likely answer, “the instructors don’t give a damn.” From a strict point of view it is the instructors’ fault. The teach- ers on campus often don’t put a lot of ef- fort into their work, and yet how can they? How can a teacher stand in front of 499 students and keep their attention or their interest when they can’t even see much less hear him properly? And moreover, because of the present tenure system, which the in- structor must face in working for the Uni- versity; the ‘publish or perish rule’ is not one an instructor can afford to overlook. These rules, and others, lead to the disillu- sionment of new instructors, even though they may start off trying to work for the students; for they soon reach the point where they must start working for the Uni- versity or leave. These administrative problems at U.R.I. in turn lead to the main educational prob- lem. And it is a two-sided problem; the students lose interest because they get lost 20 in the shuffle between the Administration and the teachers, and the teachers lose in- terest because none of the students seem to be learning anything. Education at U.R.I., for many, has be- come a part-time attempt. After all, why go to a class with 400 other people? Just stay at home in bed and get the notes from someone else who was crazy enough to go. And if you don’t get the notes it doesn’t matter, because most of the teachers don’t care enough to hassle you, just as long as you show up for the exams and can bullshit enough. If you can fill enough blue-books up then obviously you must know what you’re talking about. Of course, attitudes like this can cause problems, or at least the University of Rhode Island thinks so. And the proof of that statement is that this attitude exists here at U.R.I. A final word to those instructors on campus who still give a damn; thanks for the effort but watch out for the University. Most students would rather put up with half your interest than the whole interest of the University. Eric Peterson 21 There is a dorm in Kingston, Rhode Island. On the third floor it keeps a room, like any other, of scattered clothes and mis-laid books. A rocking chair, treated by stories untold, extends the arms of an open door. With 4 o’clock shadows of petals detached against mosaic love, reflections color the people of our days. They are the adhesive for piecing together our understanding not only of classroom learning, but comprehensive education. We wandered here merely as students; we have learned to become persons. And this is our home. Lynn McCrae A Living and Learning Experience: That is the present billing for Project 70, a dorm-classroom experiment set up by the University in 1969. It is the attempt by interested students to unify their lives as students. These students set up their classes in the buildings in which they live. Osten- sibly, this enables them to relate what they learn in the classroom to everyone else. Project 70 is one of the few organizations on campus to sponsor educational events; whether these events be a lecture from a Sociology instruc- tor or a discussion of the health problems at U.R.I. with the campus medical coordinator. But perhaps the most surprising aspect of the Project is the sense of unity within the dorms themselves. Too often a student’s dormitory experience at U.R.I. consists of a few years in a building with 3 or 4 hundred other people whom one never knows, until the student gets fed up enough to leave and go ‘down the line’ and start his own system of education, whatever that might be. Within the Project, however, students get together and learn about each other and what’s more — learn how to adapt to each other. There is no sense of isolationism, if one doesn’t get along he is able to leave but encouraged to stay. This is perhaps the Project’s greatest aspect. For on a campus that is becoming more and more deper- sonalized there is still a place where you can have a say in what goes on and not just follow every- one else. 25 26 ATHLETIC ENDEAVORS U.R.I. BASKETBALL 1971-1972 YANKEE CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS 32 33 This Space Reserved For R.O.T.C. 34 UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND AFRO-AMERICAN SOCIETY 35 As Blacks, we do not look at ourselves as stu- dents, in the limited sense of the word, but rather, as people who are continually redefining ourselves to that which is most expedient. We, as people, have come to an educational system, which in turn shows no difference from the society that it is a part of; to be subject to the same acts of racism which that society has shown for two hundred years. In order to survive and grow on a predomi- nately white campus, the Black Student Union has to establish a power-base on that campus. But in order to establish a power base, there has to be active participation and commitment by a major- ity of the Black members of the college commu- nity; and not only a commitment by the students, but by the faculty and administration as well. In order for students to increase these goals they must search out faculty and administrators; they must ask and answer questions which can give di- rection to the movement. And it is not enough to organize the Black campus members, but also nearby campuses and communities. These major concepts, coined by Don L. Lee as the Develop- ment of an Ethnic Identity, typify the way the Afro-American Society feels in reference to the University of Rhode Island. We find ourselves caught in a vacuum, trying to make the University live up to the goals it set for itself. We find ourselves trying to educate the so- called educated. We are looking for an alternative to this dying system — a system which consist- ently believes that education is our passport to the future, yet won’t let us take advantage of opportu- nities to get that education. Everywhere we turn we have to deal with the blatant inequities of the system. As racism is a part of the University foundation, it is hard not to view how the admissions policies are carried out. At no time can the inadequate University recruit- ing procedure bring answers to all your questions. In trying to help the University over and over again we have learned that inadequate is putting the position mildly. In an attempt to help the University, at the end of April, 1972, the Afro- American Society organized a High School Da ' to let interested students find out about the Uni- versity. This only points to the fact that the University is not actively involved in the current recruitment program for Blacks. Year after year, this Univer- sity continues to lean on the Talent Development Program for security, but this will not solve the problem. S.P.T.D. is limited to Rhode Island Res- idents and the University is in dire need of out-of- state Black students. The out — ofjstate enrollment probably numbers about fifteen blacks and the athletic program takes up that number. To further illustrate the University’s racist pol- icy, there is the question of Black Studies. Though I admit that many black studies programs are be- ing re-evaluated all over the country, at least other parts of the country have Black Study Pro- grams. Judging by the University of Rhode Is- land, black people went another way when Co- lumbus discovered America. In effect, what I am saying is that if we left our plight at the mercy of the University, we would exist as physical beings, nothing more. Yet after a long struggle on the part of the blacks, the University finally established an inter- disciplinary Black-Studies Program for under- graduates. Too bad they won’t let anyone know about it. Though the Program did not take effect until February, 1971 there has been ample time for its inclusion in the 1972 Catalogue. But still the University has not sent out any information concerning the program at all. This all brings up the fact of racism, which is what we were talking about to begii) with. Just because you have colleges and universities doesn ' t mean that you have education. The colleges and universities in the American educational system are skillfully used to mis-educate. The kind of ig- norance and greed that the American educational system adheres to simply illustrates how messed up the system really is. However, if the students on this campus wouldn’t just accept the analysis 36 which has been presented to them, but would take it upon themselves to research the problem of rac- ism, they would never be able to bring about a solution to the racism on this campus as long as they rely on the University to do it. There are some who will say that my attitude is radical, and that I am practicing reverse racism, whatever that is. In reality these are the same elite intellectuals who uphold racist practices day in and day out. It is these same people who are re- sponsible for a lot of the problems which exist to- day, not the radicals. However, whites who are sincere don’t accom- plish anything by joining the Afro-American Soci- ety and trying to make it integrated. White stu- dents who are sincere should organize among themselves and figure out some strategy to break down the prejudice that exists on the University of Rhode Island campus. This is where they can function most effectively and intelligently in the white organization itself; this has not been done. We realize that education has served its pur- pose — the training and qualifying of people to fit into jobs for the perpetuation of a system which has historically exploited and oppressed the masses of Black people. In the process, many blacks who have survived the educational system, have been raped of their identity and creativity, while the masses of black people have remained the powerless pawns of an educational system which is incapable of meeting their needs. As, people, if we are to rely on an institution, it should expose us to the totality of our history and role in human experience. They should help us to learn about where we came from, and where we are now, in order to help us determine exactly where we are going; and they should help to de- velop us in creativity, knowledge, and the skills to get us there. RIGHT ON! Thomas Ellison, Pres. Afro-American Society 37 URI FOREIGN STUDENTS I remember the day I first climbed down from the train at Kingston station. I was hor- rified by the thought that I would be stuck here for such a large part of my life. I also remember the first time I walked among the American students on campus. I felt uneasy at the thought that these cold and indifferent people would be the ones I would be living amongst. Now after three and a half years, I have seen American youth vascillating between an enthusiastic search for justice and truth and apathetic inaction. 1 have known students who sacrificed their time and grades to chal- lenge the system. I have seen those who still cling to that antique game for security, the Greek system. And of course, I am also aware of those who eagerly gulp down what- ever the educational system grinds out; in or- der to obtain their license for the rat-race. No matter which category they belong to, the American students at the University of Rhode Island usually ignore or avoid us, the creatures from another world. This is espe- cially true in the case of Asian students. They are considered timid, unsociable, and even weird. Although to a degree this is probably true; I feel this is due, in a large part, to the American students on campus. I am amused to find that the same American students, who are so rigid in their American values, protest the Indo-China War as an accumulation of arrogant refusals to respect and understand another’s culture and values. I find myself wondering sometimes what they a re really protesting, or if they even know themselves. In the midst of this, all foreign students swim through the confusing mess to search 38 39 for whatever they came here for, even if at times it seems that there just isn’t anything to find. Some end up on Mustangs and Play- boy; others end up on grass and long hair; others have reached the ultimate status of tossing footballs with the fraternity brothers. But the ones in the worst situation are those who try to obliterate the fact that they are in the United States, by hiding themselves in shells of laziness and cynicism. This is done so successfully that few people know that there are actually 250 foreign students on this campus. Perhaps a local tour through Fortin Road and the graduate apartments will con- vince you that plane tickets to China and In- dia can be saved. Thus, to say the least, communication be- tween American and foreign students is un- fortunately poor. Internationalism, on this campus, is a word for fools only. And since, through careful and painful adaptation, I am no longer a fool; I sometimes have to stop and search for the reasons behind the apath- etic attitudes here at the University of Rhode Island. I suppose that it is simply a phenome- non, much as the bloody ones which we ob- serve between different nations and races, in our world community. Nevertheless, every foreign student has his package of memories when he leaves the University of Rhode Is- land. They are probably different from the ones he searched for when he first arrived; but as all memories, some are bitter and some are sweet. I just pray that w hen this American experience at the University of Rhode Island ends for each of us foreign stu- dents, we will have more of the sweeter taste; even with the odds against us.

Where else are you going to find someone to help you study at 3 am? Or to lend you her best jeans for a special occasion. Did you ever try to make and live on a budget for 70 girls?! Experience — that’s what it is. For what? Who knows, but someday we might. We are people who share a keen awareness of the potential of community living. The close relation- ships in our houses enable us to grow socially and intellectually in a meaningful way. Our commitments to each other are strong. As unique individuals we are willing to share our talents with one another. Whether it is in the realm of art, science, or humaneness we all have something to contribute to our community, and we give gladly. Sorority people are exciting. Whether it’s at a pledge party or tipping a toast at the pub, we enjoy life to its fullest. We embrace each new experience and weave it into the colorful fabrics of our lives. Philanthropy is another facet of sorority life that we share. Trips to Ladd School, blood drives and Big Brother-Big Sister are a few demonstrations of our willingness to give of ourselves. We strive for higher standards of scholarship. Intellectual achievement is a valuable asset. It is a wealth which can never be lost. Such a gift adds profound pleasure and fulfillment to our lives. One final note. We are women who are sharing in common a progression toward all that womanhood can be. We seek a higher intensity of warmth, responsibility, personality, and intellect. The dorm I lived in as a freshman offered nothing more than a bed, desk and a roommate whom I didn’t know. I had a need to relate to people and associate with them. In a large dorm complex, people are just faces with their eyes turned away. A dorm couldn’t offer me comfort and the ability to relax among people I knew. When I was shown the opportunity to live with a small group of people, who I could meet and talk to, I moved into a Sorority. In the Sorority I found people who worked together and shared their experiences. It was the atmosphere I needed, at the time, in order to expand myself. However as I developed, the structure of the sorority began to appear less important. My time, I felt, could be better used without the mandatory activities of a sorority, and I found that my personal interests were more important to me. I feel that for me, the system is dying yet I appreciate the relationships that I made. In the death of the sorority system, though, I feel that there would be a loss to those people who need a small, structured security. 45 More than anything else, I think belonging to a House is an experience in sharing. The Greek System is based on concepts of brotherhood and sisterhood — but, in order to make these qualities really exist, everyone must be committed. A great deal of time and effort is involved in running a house, rushing prospective members, doing goodwill projects, having social functions, representing a house in athletic competitions, caring about your other brothers and sisters. I think if a person joins a House with high expectations in terms of personal rewards, he or she will most likely be disappointed. You don’t acquire instant friendship, a booming social life, security, popu- larity, or anything else. Basically, it is a group of people living together — the rest is what you make it. 46 To members of the Greek system, a fraternity is many things. A fraternity is an experience, it is in- volvement, and it is development. In short, fraternity is Phi Sigma Kappa. Phi Sigma Kappa offers op- portunities for men to come together, to understand, to learn and to unite in a feeling of Brotherhood; a Brotherhood that goes much further than superficial amenities. Phi Sigma Kappa is a vehicle for the establishment of relationships ... for fostering a deep sense of commitment to a young man and his needs. Our bond is a deep and enduring Brotherhood and our purpose is excellence. This chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa offers the opportunity for each of its members to develop more fully those traits which identify him as a man — A TRUE PHI SIG! 47 5 CA Vv, 0y VAO 1 T«_ TU oc4 Jor.4; d-.(W+ tYlVfe- aJIQ T.lv- S ' ■ ' is v n IS YvO 0 , iLffidi ( I ] UsAi ™ t ' A-l I 4 ' 4 1 )ke. t (S avs L nifel M 4h j a f a At a a . a RURKE M !!! v I am a homosexual and this singular fact col- ors my entire point of view. Why? If it were up to me my sexuality would be only one of many things which would influence my outlook. How- ever, the life around me powerfully overempha- sizes my sexuality and makes me see everything only as it relates to my being gay. This overemphasis is wrought by suppression, for I am hemmed in from all sides by fear of discovery, by the potential accusation of perver- sion, by the twisted ugliness of the gay ghetto mentality, and by sheer loneliness I feel because I cannot truly, freely, and honestly reach out to the men I love. Were all these forces not pres- ent, one could live easily with his homosexual- ity, but as it is one is constantly being restricted and is never allowed to forget that he is gay. The attitude not only implied but blatantly stated by this suppression is one of condemna- tion. It is a condemnation before which I feel an impotent rage, for it is based on ignorance and, as such, is incapable of listening to reason. Furthermore, that blind condemnation will be a force which I, as a homosexual, will have to contend with throughout my life, and I will al- ways have to become aware of how it effects me in my attitude towards myself. In studying this matter one becomes aware of an enormous struggle between natural growth as a homosexual and the forces of suppression implicit in the life around me which constantly try to hinder that growth. Those forces will ei- ther make me into a stereotyped ‘fag’ or a pre- tentiously heterosexual ‘closet-queen,’ unless I can resist and simply become myself. It all in- volves an individual fight for freedom to be true to the self, a fight unknown to those not considered to be blatantly abnormal. Herein lies an internal problem for because of the struggle with suppression I can easily be- come overtly obsessed with trying to be hon- estly gay, almost to the point of being dishon- estly blatant. The solution requires a lack of self consciousness and a sense of proportion. It requires a sense of being at home with the self, which involves a self-knowledge with its result- ing freedom and naturalness. In going through both the internal and exter- nal struggle one can hardly advance unless one hits upon that simple but essential source of all freedom, the knowledge that one is not free; and it is the full awareness of internal and ex- ternal suppression which forms the first step to- wards gay liberation. With a critical insight into 50 one’s imprisonment one can break down the walls. In realizing the value of this knowledge I thank The University of Rhode Island for the restrictions it imposed on me as a homosexual. I thank the fraternity I once pledged for fright- ening me with its pretensions of virility and masculinity. I thank the friends who turned from me in disgust when they came to know my sexuality. I thank the pretty girls who sys- tematically rejected me when I would not per- form. I thank the atmosphere of the male dor- mitories for forcing me into an underground and paranoid existence. Most of all, I thank the complete lack of sensitivity towards the homo- sexual, the lack which was exhibited throughout my four years in Kingston. I thank these things and people, for because of that cold ignorance I was forced to seek a liberation which both ex- tended my awareness and gave me pride in my si sexuality. My only regret and apprehension is for those who still have to go through Kingston, for those who must experience four years of sick and de- structive suppression in a place theoretically at- tuned to growth, learning and free expression of self. How many have there been . . . living in fear and guilt because they are what they are? Will the University of Rhode Island permanently cramp their lives or will it spur them on to personal revolt??? How many are there already . . . 54 55 Afro-American Society: President - Thomas D. Ellison. Vice President - Louise Francis All Nations Club: President - President - Alan Kaplan.

The center has relations with local hospitals. Potter Infirmary, The Dean of Stu- dents Office, the Campus Police, and the South Kingston Police, to mention a few. Students with problems which pertain to crisis counseling, drug in- formation, or “anxieties found in the middle of the night” are urged to call the center and it will help refer you to one of the above mentioned institutions. And if they can’t refer you to them they will try to talk with you and ease the burden of your problem. The students working there are trained by either the Counseling Center or by other experienced students. All their work is voluntary. They are available be- tween the hours of 8 pm and 6 am, seven days a week. In 1972-73 they will be located at 18 Lower College Road, the psychology building and will still be on call to help you with any problem you feel you can’t handle alone. You, the U.R.I. student, will be able to find them via their advertising posters. 58 59 DAVE MASON URI STUDENT ENTERTAINMENT COMMITTEE CONCERT CALENDAR Sept. 16 Seals and Crofts Loudon Wainwright III 19 Jonathan Edwards Schooner Vesta 28 Beach Boys Oct. 4 Traff ic Fairport Conv. 10 Youngbloods England Dan and John Ford Coley 25 Cat Stevens Mimi Farina 27 Sweet Rush 29 Kris Kristofferson Nov. 9 Procol Harum Uncle Vinty BIG TIME T V WRESTLING 62 QVM PN(1 FreeOmctft+ ' MARK ALMOND Dec. 4 The Byrds Blue Oyster Cult Maha- vishnu Orch.

You must be happy when you’re happy And sad when you’re sad. And never never feel you have to feel you have to. If you’re old we’ll grow together; If you’re young then take me with you. (A knock at the door. Pause. Enter a woman.) Ah, another. What game shall we play tonight? Who shall we be? I’ve a bag full of costumes. And if the dialogue is right I’ve a neon light to flash. If not, well we can fix it. There ' s ways for that. If not, we can move on. What do we do first, speak? Is that the way to travel? If you like, there’s music And a candle for mood, Over there by the wine Yes that too. I don’t miss a trick. Want a piece of candy? Should we walk? We have a room to come back to. Besides, leaves add a nice touch to silence. The words will follow. I speak fluent Shakespeare. What’s that? Really you’re free to go. The door’s locked? Then stay awhile. You’ll call the police? Come now, please, there’s no phone here. I’m not all that hard to get used to. I shave regularly. Shower occasionally. I bathe on holidays. Can we make a go of it? So tell me: how shall it be? (She’s fainted.) 45 46 The picture in the lower left hand corner was taken on the grounds of a Buddist Mon- astery outside the city of Quang Tri in South Vietnam in April of 1969. It is a simple yet beautiful, ceremonial incense burner. The Vi- etnamese people daily burn incense to the spirits of their ancestors, a practice of the Buddist faith. The hole in the pot was caused by a burst from a mortar shell, showing that nothing escapes the devastation of war. The picture in the upper left hand corner is a shrine at that same Buddist Monastery. I call the shot “Reflections of past Glory.” And surely all the glory is in the past, be- cause as we all know, the culture is being sys- tematically destroyed. When I took this pic- ture, the beauty of it all was that these tem- ple grounds were a sort of oasis in the middle of a desert. Surrounding these grounds were military complexes, where grass and trees re- fused to grow. As a student of the Seventies, I see clearly the role that the University graduate must play. Would it be presumptuous of me to say that we must not ask new questions, but find relevant answers to the Age-Old question: Why? Would it be further presumptuous of me to say that we must all patch up that hole in the incense burner and we must all create more oasises the world over. — I think not. David J. Medeiros 49 Moon solo and the eyes of night are shining. On stage, the skin of darkness rubs against the trees Taut, sensual. The breeze licks the dew drops dry. 50 51 Into the hollows of night A furry racoon burrows. Dawn and trees that shake droplets of light Rise up to meet the pathways of the eye. Turtles do turtle things, their world below the lowest branch Bugs, delicate and perfect, fly and crawl And snakes rub their skin against the morning. 52 the river picks up the music and spreads the dream. Gathering the speed of dancing leaves. Sounds run through the undergrowth Deep, throaty calls: A bird stops to perch on a low, light limb Cackles, stares, moves with the wind. The sun warms like good wine drink slowly. 53 You told me once That little girls Grow into women. I didn’t understand. Your hands were small then, And everything you said Could fit into a single room. Remember when we played house And you would dress up and burn the brownies? I was a doctor that year, And very busy. All that was a long time ago. I look at you sometimes when you sleep And smile at your eyelids and your curls. The ribbon around your hair Makes me think That women grow slowly into little girls. 56 57 58 59 60 61 63 64 65 66 r , 1 • ' o ' ' Jt " T 3 r i» - K V •Jt - - e J l !• 67 69 72 73 74 75 76 78 79 80 U.R.I ENCYCLOPEDIA 81 Apartments: Accomodations: the Tower Hill Motor Inn — 138 and rt. 1 ACI: the Adult Correctional Institute.

Since coming to work in the Game Room Area six years ago, I have met many young people and wherever I travel, I always meet someone who greets me with “Hi Reggie!” The game room is a busy place — the billi- ard tables are in use most of the time. Usu- ally there is a waiting list, for there is a one hour limit on billiards and ping-pong. There are 13 billiard and 5 ping pong tables. There are many excellent ping pong players at URI and the champions are mostly foreign stu- dents. The last three were from India and Yugoslavia. When school starts in the fall, freshmen seem to take over, but when I see some who play too much, I try to impress on them that if they skip class to play pool they will flunk out. Some have taken my advise and some have flunked out. Many girls enjoy a game of pool and we have about 10 “regulars”. Most ever- yone is well behaved, but as in all cases there are the very few who I have to “holler” at once in awhile. Vandalism is at a low ebb this year, and most try to keep the rooms clean, especially since we put carpets on the floors. My job is very busy at times — mak- ing change, answering questions, giving direc- tions, fixing equipment, etc. but when I leave URI, I will miss it, as will most of the under- graduates who are here now.
