When this college becomes a university, we need not apolo.gize for the term "Little Rhody"; in fact, this expression will be but a reminder of f ormer, bygone days. And not only in size of scope, but in depth also must we develop. The students must look upon their ~olle_ge as a growing, live, educational institution, aiding the expansiOn Ill every possible way. When, in future years, we refer to our Alma Mater, we will proudly say, "The University of Rhode Island-long may she reign!" -B. F.

Dear Sir : At last, our c ollege , h as purchased one of the greatest n ecessities to our fire department-that of a siren. During the past yeat·s, a small bell, similar t to the one that tolls out every hour, was used to notify the students of a fire. The bell was large enough to serve its purpose during· those years b ut it became in effective owing to the t he ·stud-ent c ommittee i n charg·e of fact that the f r aternity ·houses wer e bringing the Annual Inter scholastic built away f rom the cam pus.
