School Spirit 


Much has been heard and said 
about school spirit here at Nat'l Agr. 
College since this writer arrived on 
the campus. It is with this thought in 
mind that I would like to write a few 
lines about school spirit as I see and 
feel it should he. 

To me the term school spirit as used 
by the students is grossly misunder- 
stood. It is often used in the wrong 
way. It is my opinion that students 
feel they are expressing school spirit 
merely by being noisy in their support 
and in attendance at the school's ath- 
letic functions. This of course is a 
good thing if done in a proj^er manner, 
but it is only a part of what is expect- 
ed of one who wants to display a spirit 
of loyalty for his school and class- 

A person really shows his schcK)l 
spirit bv his interest in all the acti- 
vities of his college and of his fellow 

It includes, by all means, the work 
of the classroom. One simply cannot 
display true sch(K)l spirit without do- 
ing to the best of his ability the work 
which is offered in the classes. This 

is the type of school loyalty which is 
not always easy to display. It takes a 
great deal of sacrifice, interest, 
thought and hard work. This is the 
true criteria for the basis of real 
school spirit. 

Everyone I think will agree that it 
takes more zest and concentration to 
hold one's self to tasks which require 
mental effort than it does to holler, 
wave frantically and kick and stamp 
in support of the team, especially if 
the team is a winner. Everyone wants 
and will support the team when it is 

School spirit is also more than 
scholarship. It means an attitude of 
friendliness and helpful cooperation 
toward fellow students. Developing 
these attributes lays the foundation 
for a career of public service which in 
later years can be of great benefit to 
one's self, community and nation. 

School spirit is also shown by will- 
ingness of the students to obey the 
rules of the administration. They will 
consider the observance of the rules 
important and necessary for a well

On Saturday, November 10, at 1:45 
A.M. fire swept through the Louch- 
heim pymnasium, which is situated on 
the main campus of the National Agri- 
cultural College. Within the short 
space of a half an hour, despite the 
efforts of several members of the Vol- 
unteer Fire Depts. the gym had burned 
completely to the ground. 

The students and their dates, who 
were on campus for the College Week- 
end had been square dancing in the 
gym only a few snort hours before the 
fire broke out. They and people for 
miles around, were aroused by the 
fire alarms and the bright red glow in 
the sky. Those on the scene saw that 
nothing could be done to save the 
building, and confined their efforts to 
preventing the fire from spreading. 

The loss of the gymnasium was driv- 
en home to^many students the follow- 
ing week. The basketball team had to 
find a new place to practice; the Phys 
Ed classes were left shivering on the 
field for lack of indoor facilities, and 
many students who had used the gym 
for a friendly basketball game with 
fellow classmates where left out in the 
cold. The possibility of Intramural 
basketball was also ruled out for this 
year. Hope was to rise again after the 
shock of the fire had subsided. The 
next day. President Work held a prev- 
iously scheduled Board of Directors 
meeting and it has been reliably re- 
ported the main topic of discussion 
was how to replace the valuable asset 
the college lost. Speculation was ram- 
pant throughout the student body on 
the plans of the new gym, and wheth- 
er it might include a swimming pool. 
As one student put it, "It would reallv 
help if we could bring our basketball 
games back on campus plus have a big 
enough building in which to hold all 
our Social Activities." 


The first issue of the Furrow came 
about through the efforts of the stu- 
dents with a big assist from Mr. Smith 
and Dean Meyer. At the present time, 
the paper is experiencing rocky finan- 
cial sailing. This little problem, we be- 
Hpve, will be plowed, disced, and 
seeded by next issue. 

We wish to thank the Student Coun- 
cil and junior class for the fine Col- 
lege Weekend just passed. I am sure 
a hot time was had by all. There is 
talk of another weekend in the spring. 
It will be extremely hard to match the 
fine frolic of this fall. 

Talking of frolic, the Senior class 
is sponsoring a dance to be held at the 
Moose Hall in Doylestown called the 
Winter Frolic. It is expected that it 
will be a nice ball for all, so we hope 
to see you all there with your dates. 
Check with any senior for tickets or 
more information. 

The basketball season is just around 
the corner and the coach says the boys 
are shaping up nicely. He hopes that 
all of you will turn out like you did 
last year. The support was very good. 
We only hope the band plays at evqry 
home game. They raise the moral of 
the players to unknown heights. 

It has been noticed by the editors, 
that this years' Student Council is 
"hot to go". Too bad the Student 
Court couldn't do likewise. One in 
every ten thousand get caught red 

handed "Whot Hoppen men?" 

—get cold feet? 

Many students have asked what is 
the policy of this newspaper. Our pol- 
icy is to report the news from whom- 
ever or whatever is news to the stu- 
dent body. So, if you want to be news,

Last September 16, Dr. Pelle and 
the Animal Husbandry Judging Team 
went to the Eastern States Inter-col- 
legiate Livestock Judging Contest. It 
has always been a sore spot here at 
N. A. C, that our judging teams have 
come through individually, but as a 
team on the low end of the scoring. 
However, this year. Dr. Pelle and his 
team have turned the tide and started 
it going the other way. 

During their stay at the Bridgeway 
hotel, the boys worked out the final 
flaws in the team on the first night. 
The next morning at 8 o'clock sharp, 
pre-judging of four classes of cattle, 
three of swine, two of horses, and three 
classes of sheep. The actual judging 
began on the following day. The pre- 
judging was over by 12 o'clock. Now 
came the difficult part. From 1 o'clock 
in the afternoon, to 6 o'clock in the 
evening, they had to give oral rea- 
sons for their individual placings. 

When the scores were tallied, Har- 
vey Wacker was the top man of the 
contest, from among 45 contestants. 
The team, as a unit, placed eighth out 
of nine, beating only New Hamp- 
shire. The placings were as follows: 

1. Cornell 

2. Conn. 

3. Pennsylvania State 

4. Rutgers 

5. Ohio State 

6. Mass. 

7. Maryland 

8. National Agricultural College 

9. New Hampshire 

The comments made by the team, 
when they returned, pointed out 
where we fall short in our judging, 
and was duly passed on to the next 
years' hopefuls. One comment that 
impressed this reporter was the fact 
that some members of the other teams 
had judging scholarships. 

The 1956 judging team consisted of 
Harvey Wacker, Tom Watson, Ed 
Adams, William VanKueren, and Birk- 
ett Howarth. 

'Plow -Plant' Corn Gets Better Yield

Basketball Preview

"Aggies bow in season finale to 
Ursinus, 20-6." 

Fresh from a brilliantly played 
game in Washington in which coach 
Pete Pihos's eleven humbled Gallau- 
det College by a 28-0 ^core, the Ag- 
gies prepared to meet Ursinus Col- 
lege on Saturday, November 10. Ur- 
sinus, having battled Haverford Col- 
lege to a 7-7 tie the week before and 
sporting a 2-3-1 record, were faced 
with the dreary aspect of having to 
win to even their season's log, to face 
Juanita the following week. 

Bob Famous, the thunderous half- 
back, had another of his fine days, 
with an 84 yard punt return for a 
touchdown. He opened the scoring in 
the first half. The Aggies outplayed 
the red and black eleven during 
the first two periods, 5-1 in first 
downs, in rushing and also in passing. 
As the first half ended, the Aggies 
threatened to score but were stopped 
short on the 1 foot line after a sus- 
tained drive featuring the fine run- 
ning of backs Blair, Markovic, Scott, 
Exley and Sturm. The rushing and 
passing of quarterback Bob Rush to 
sure-handed Joe Faline (a bear cat 
on defense ) , moved the ball from Ag- 
gie territory to the goal line. Bob 
Famous' attempt for the extra point 
was missed as the team headed for 
the dressing room the score remained 
6-0. Countless times this season home 
spectators realized it was missed con- 
versions that made the difference in 
points. Attempting to score, the Ag- 
gie split T offense took to the air as 
Rush passing into the flat with a 
screen pass saw it intercepted by line- 
man Ray Paine, who galloped 58 
yards for the touchdown. Famous 
passed for the extra point which ef- 
fectively stifled the defense. Half- 
back Chris Rohm broke through for 
a ^ yard scoring sprint in the fourth 
period for the final tally. The Aggies 
threatening desperately, stx)red on a 
set-up pass play. Faline snaring a 20 
yard aerial from Rush, and minutes 
later scoring the touchdown on a short 
pass from the quarterback. 

Although the Aggies had a wide 
edge in the statistics, the Hawkeyes 
had the edge where it counted. 

The season's team compiling a 3 
win, 4 loss record under the coaching 
staff of bead coach Pete Pihos and as- 
sistants Ted Gehlmann, Lou King and 

Steve Ferdo deserve hearty congratu- 
lations for a year of thrilling gridiron 
play. "We" certainly enjoyed working 
with the team both writing and broad- 
casting the games, and "we sure like 
the team" expresses the feeling of the 
student body. 

Congratulations to the graduating 
seniors who have been standouts in 
the Rock and Sock Trade, back field 
—hard running Joe Carstens, one of 
the Aggies' favorite runners when the 
going gets tough. 

Linemen, rugged • tackles Wayne 
Hoffner, who will be remembered 
for his brilliant kicking which had 
won 5 games during his varsity career.

working men on the squad. Bill 
Plenge, the tobacco chewing moun- 
tain farmer from New Jersey, varsity 
letterman, will be missed by the 
coaching staff and the team next year.

ball season and interviews with head 
coach Ted Gehlmann and this years'

In earnest anticipation of the cur- 
rent basketball season are, co-captain 
Don Grim, Head Coach Ted Gehl- 
mann and co-captain Tony Cabrales. 
Beginning his initial season as coach 
of the Aggie cagers,, Ted Gehlmann 
is no stranger to football follower.s 
during the past gridiron season, ser\- 
ing as assistant coach. Stressing many 
hours of hard work during practice 
sessions, he concentrates on funda- 
mental drills as well as play patterns. 
Theorizing on handling his players, 
Coach Gehlmann states, "if I'm hol- 
lering at you, I'm noticing you". The 
coaching methods are meeting with 
acclaim, as reflected by the fine at- 
titude and spirit of the '56-'57 team. 

Co-captains Grim and Cabrales ex- 
emplified the type player character- 
izing the team's ambition to win the 
Delaware Valley Conference Champ- 
ionship. This is the first year we have 
participated in the Conference. The 
Aggies will play 8 out of their 9 home 
games at the Central Bucks High 

Saturday, December 1, the Aggies 
opened the initial season at College- 
ville by defeating Ursinus College by 
a score of 59-50 behind a 33 point con- 
tribution by Dick Prins. The battle be- 
tween tight defenses featured a thrill- 
ing game before an overflow crowd. 

Remember, if you can't play a sport, 
be one.

functioning college and will gladly 
abide by them. If they enter into and 
abide by them while in college they 
also will do so when they enter in to 
society. Play and live by the rules is 
a good motto to live by. It is very es- 
sential in our form of government. 

The football season is over and the 
basketball season upon us. In conclu- 
sion I would like to draw up a set of 
rules that I would like for every stu- 
dent and participant to accept and 
abide by while attending and playing 
basketball this year. It would do un- 
told good for the school spirit of NAC. 

1) Show self control at all times 
during and after the game. 

2 ) Consider athletic opponents and 
officials as guests. 

3) Accept the officials decision as 

4) Commend and cheer good plays 
by either team. 

5 ) Support the cheerleaders whole- 

6) Respect the judgment of the 

7) Be modest in victory and grac- 
ious in defeat. 

8) Consider it your privilege and 
duty to encourage everyone, players 
and spectators alike, to live up to the 
spirit of fair olay and sportsmanship. 

And finally every individual stu- 
dent should live by the Golden Rule: 

"Do unto others as you would have 
them do unto you." 

Council Clippings 

By Eu. Adams 

What We the Council 

Are Doing for You the Student 

When the construction of the new 
parking is completed there will be am- 
ple parking for everyone on campus. 
Alumni lane will be paved for your 
added convenience. The parking sys- 
tem this year has gotten favorable ac- 
claim from the administration. 

The sound system which was set up 
recently in the chow hall has been ac- 
cepted favorably by you the student 
body for which the student council is 
pleased. The system can be used at 
the athletic games and along with the 
record player for the dances. This is 
one big improvement for the entire 
college which was obtained as a gift 
from the Class of "56". 

For the thirsty students on campus 
there have been placed in the dorms 
Coke machines which are very con- 
venient. The student response is .self 
evident, they are always empty. The 
council felt that they are a necessity 

in the dorms. Going along with this 
we hope you have noticed and used 
the pencil sharpeners placed at num- 
erous spots in the dorms. 

Those outstanding emblems which 
are on the new band uniforms were 
partially purchased by the student 
council in order to help the band out. 
They will be sold in the student store 
at a nominal price. 

A bid of thanks from all the stu- 
dents on campus should go to Presi- 
dent Work for the fine pool table 
which he is donating to the student 
body worth $1200. He is also donat- 
ing some good furniture and an almost 
new ping-pong table. These will be 
set up in the game room for use in 
your leisure hours. The student coun- 
cil seniors are going to move it up 
here with Mr. Hopkins. 

There are many proposals in the 
council for the coming semester. It 
has been decided that the winning 
team of the intramural football 
league get individual trophies for 
their efforts in winning the league. 

Probably the most talked alKKit 
campaign on campus is the dress up 
campaign. The student council feels 
that this will increase the standing and 
caliber of the school as a whole. We 
feel that it is for the students own 
good if this idea is accepted. The re- 
flection of the school is carried re- 
gardless of where the students go: so 
let's dress up better for classes and 
for meals and most of all when we 
leave the campus. 

The college weekend was a bang up 
affair this year. We hope all our ef- 
forts gave all who attended a swell 


ment at N. A. C. and the other year 
with the Union County Mosquito 
Commission. He wants to go into buy- 
ing and inspection of fruits and vege- 
tables after graduation. 

Paul Chechle—?di\i\, an Agronomy 
major, is from West Pittston, Pennsyl- 
vania, near Scranton, in the heart of 
the Coal region. He's a participant in 
the Agronomy Club, the Varsity Club, 
and the "A" Day Committee. His main 
reason for coming to N. A. C. was his 
decision to change from underground 
to surface farming. Paul spent his sum- 
mers working at the school dairy and 
with John Giusti learning landscap- 
ing and crop and equipment manage- 
ment. He hopes to get a plush job in 
the Agronomy sales field after gradua- 
tion. "Check's" famous saying around 
campus is "Yo Dere."

Tiie SERVICE And YOU Shodow IsIc Pnn€e Eric, nth 

BY Dave Caplan 

(This is the first of a series of articles to 
he presented concerning the U. S. Armed 
Forces and should he of interest to all. Dave 
Caplan is a veteran of the U. S. Army from 
the Panama campaign). 

Before we begin our discussions 
into the individual services, I yould 
like to express the spirit in which these 
articles are presented. They are not 
designed to encourage you to enter 
any particular branch of the Armed 
Forces, They are merely intended to 
show you what opportunities each 
branch has to offer, since most of us 
will face this problem in the near fu- 

Well, Anchors Aweigh, and come 
aboard to view the opportunities the 
U. S. Navy has to offer. If you wish to 
remain in close contact with agricul- 
ture, and be a commissioned officer, 
there is a slight possibility. If you are 
over 21, have a selective service status 
of 1-C, 4- A, or 5-A and are physically 
qualified, the Navy will directlv com- 
mission you as an Ensign in the ad- 
ministration and supply branch of the 
Naval Medical Service Corps. This 
will engage you in the field of food 
purchasing, medical supplies, etc. This 
is the only direct commission the Navy 
offers which parallels agriculture, 
since it is a field far from their needs. 

Other commissions are also avail- 
able if you attend an Officer Candi- 
date School (OCS) in Newport, R. I. 
After a concentrated 16 week course, 
you are commissioned as an Ensign. 
Then you may be trained as a line of- 
ficer for sea duty or as a staff officer. 
If you are a Staff Corps Officer, you 
may again be assigned to the Medical 
Service Corps which is more closely 
connected to agriculture and its' allie^ 
fields than any other part of the Navy. 

Other commissions are offered 
through the Aviation Officer Cadet 
and the Naval Aviation Cadet pro- 
grams. These are known more pop- 
ularly as the AOC and the Nav Cad 
programs. After qualifying physical- 
ly, you are sent to Pensarfola, Florida,

BY John Lesko, chairman, A-Day Committee 

A-Day and the National Agricul- 
tural College are two terms that are 
in the minds of the many people that 
have seen previous A-Days, and the 
students who have participated in 

A-Day is the annual agricultural 
show conducted each May by the 
students of the college. The students 
have always shown a great deal of in- 
terest in the production of A-Day, the 
committee believes there is little 
chance of the students not making 
the 1957 A-Day a successful one. 

A-Day involves the participation of 
every major at the college, and also 
represents many of the extra curricu- 
lar activities. 

The Animal Husbandry Club along 
with the Dairy Society presents A-Day 
activity with the judging, showing and 
grooming of animals. The Hort Club 
members have always made an excel- 
lent showing with their many fine 
exhibits. These are really a wonder-

Prince Eric is the thirteenth son of 
Prince Eric of Sunbeam, "Bull of the 
Century" and was sold as a calf by 
Shadow Isle Farms (his original 
owners ) , Prince Eric of Sunbeam him- 
self was sold for $200,000. Jesskin of 
Bordulac, the dam of our Prince Eric 
is well known for her ability to pro- 
duce fine calves. 

Shadow Isle, Prince Eric 13th is 
now a part of the National Agricultur- 
al College herd. He has all the ear- 
marks of developing into a good breed- 
ing bull, being short coupled, thick, 
and containing plenty of bone and a 
good set of legs. All of these traits go 
with his excellent pedigree to make 
one of the finest prospects for the im- 
provement of our present Aberdeen 
Angus herd. You must remember that 
it takes three things to make a good 
sire; he must have a good pedigree, 
he himself must be of superior type, 
and his progeny must be good. We 
have seen his calves and they are all 
above average, therefore, all of these 
requirements have been met. 

The College does not have any 
calves from him to date, because he 
was received on August 31, 1956. 
However, we are expecting great 
things from him for his calves will be 
grandsons of Prince Eric of Sunbeam. 
Prince Eric's calves are known wher- 
ever top quality stock is to be found. 
In our college we will not produce a 
great deal of stock for beef produc- 
tion, we will advance slowly, surely, 
and correctly in the production of 
quality stock. The "13th" is an out- 
standing step toward our goals for 

The bull is a gift to the college from 
Mr. Oscar Hammerstein 2nd, owner 
of "Highland Farms" and was present- 
ed to Dr. Tibor Pelle, Head of the 
Animal Husbandry Department in be- 
half of the college. Prince Eric was 
brought to the college by Peter Moen, 
superintendent of "Highland Farms", 
and his son, Walter Moen, manager of

Here we go to press again with an- 
other issue of THE FURROW. We 
hope it is up to the standards that* 
have been set by everyone. 

A difference of opinion arose be- 
tween the Poultry Chib and the Orna- 
mental Horticulture Club over who 
should have the upper floor in the 
Farm Machinery Building. It was set- 
tled by an informal meeting with the 
Faculty and the "A" Day Committee. 
Poultry is upstairs and Horticulture is 
downstairs. Next year and thereafter 
each will alternate for the coveted up- 
per floor. I am sure everyone will be 
watching the Ornamental Horticul- 
ture boys to see the swell job they 
will do under these adverse conditions 
and will the Poultry boys eat crow? 

Dick Prin's Night was a fine gesture 
to a good ball player. More of the 
same for all sports is very much in 

By the way, what are you doing for 
"A" Day? 

If you have a pet gripe, write it out 
and give it to any member of THE 
FURROW. It will get into print. 

The Sophomore Dance was a bang- 
up affair. All who went had a good 
time and the "Ed" thanks all the 
Sophomores who helped put it over. 
Once again it's proof there is a way to 
put over a good dance off campus. 

A side light — This year McGrat- 
tan fell for Mr. Brown's old, old joke 
in "Meat & Meat Products." 

The baseball season is coming 
around soon. Tom Watson will cover 
all the games in sports column but let's 
make it a rehash because you will 
have seen them all, right? We hear 
Scotty is going to win 20 this year.

The Club al§o took a field trip to 
the Dairy Industries Show, which was 
held at Atlantic City. 

Future plans of the Club include 
such things as two speakers (possibly 
Joe Bushel and Harry Weber), a field 
trip and exhibits for the A-Day show. 


Last semester was also an active 
one for the Poultry Club. They held 
a banquet at the Old Water WTieel 
Inn, and featured Cornel Kendall as 
their guest speaker. 

Great plans are being made for a 
really outstanding A-Day display 
this year by the club. There will be 14 
exhibits in all, featuring such things 
as a wild life display consisting of 
partridge, grouse, pheasants and also 
a rare bird exhibit. They will again 
this year sponsor a judging contest 
in which 5 high school FFA teams 
will compete against each other. 

Some very interesting events are 
planned for the coming semester. 

Movies of poultry diseases will be 
shown: opportunities after graduation 
will be discussed; and speakers on 
feeds and feeding practices have been 
scheduled for the coming semester. 

The Hort. Club has also been hav- 
ing its share of activity. They pre- 
sented three speakers last semester. 
Dr. Clark of Rutgers University lec- 
tured on the effect of radiation on 
plants and its possibihties. Mr. Wil- 
liam Yerkes spoke on the hybridiza- 
tion of field corn; and a third speak- 
er lectured on nursery business and 

Two field trips, movies, and addi- 
tional lecturers are all planned for 
this coming semester. The club will

in March and Koster Nursery and Sea- 
brook Farms later in the year.

The first Delaware Valley Confer- 
ence game the homeside played was 
Rutgers in a squeaker, dropping the 
contest by a low score of 53 to 48 on 
December 6. The score was tied four 
times during the first half which saw 
each club ripping the cords for 24 
points as the half ended. Dick Prins 
was high scorer for the Aggies with 
19 points trailed by Jack Briggs with 
13 tallies. Joe Bretscheider averaging 
17.0 per game in the conference was 
high man for Rutgers with 24 points. 

The doubleheader program fea- 
tured a win for the green and gold 
however, as the J. V. team defeated 
the "Pioneer" J. V. by a 40-33 score. 
John Merrill, who shuffles up between 
the J. V. and the varsity topped the 
point makers with 25. 

On December 11, the Aggies tra- 
veled to Philadelphia where they 
defeated Temple Pharmacy 66-59 
Jack Briggs, averaging 12 points per 
game led the Aggies, scoring 23 
points. This game featured the return 
to action of Charlie Indek, contribut- 
ing 12 points in the scoring column. 
Temple Pharmacy currently holds a 
3-3 won-lost record, while averaging 
69 points per game. 

The third winning contest came at 
the hands of Newark State Teachers 
College on December 13, with a 68-46 
score. The locals actually swamped 
the visitors, who, ironically enough, 
beat them in both games last year. 
The Aggies jumped into the lead at 
the opening tap and stayed ahead 
throughout the game. Almost every- 
one wearing a green and white suit 
entered into the scoring column to 
accumulate the 68 points. 

Dick Prins, fifth currently in scor- 
ing in the loop, averaging 21.5 points 
per game, led the scorers with 20 
points while sitting out the last ten 
minutes of play. Dave Bjornson, av- 
eraging 10 points per game was hot 
during the first half, dunking 10 
points. Gene Campbell, paced the vis- 
itors with 15 points. 

Philadelphia Textile, which heads 
the Delaware Valley Conference, 
presently sporting a 6 and 1 won-lost 
record and averaging 77.7 points per 
game, rallied twice to defeat the Ag- 
gies 74-64 in an away game played on 
December 18. The Aggies led through 
the opening minutes 8-7 but Textile 
scored eight straight points, paced by 
Dick O'Donnel, high man for Textile 
with 18 points. Led by their high scor- 
er, Dick Prins, with 20 points, the 
home side narrowed the score to 35- 
33 at the half, matching the Weavers 
basket for basket, on their fast breaks. 
During the second half. Textile pulled 
ahead by as much as 16 points. The 
Aggies rallied to close the gap some- 
what to 10 points. 

Charlie Indek did an outstanding 
job guarding the league's high scor- 
er. Chick Barnes, averaging 27.0 
points a game, holding him to 13 
points while scoring 15 himself. 

Saturday, January 5, saw the Ag- 
gies receive their third setback from 
Susquehanna University, with a score 
of 71-65. This was a disheartening 
loss as the team led throughout the 
game only to lose in the final min- 
utes. Dick Tyler gave Susquehanna 
the lead with two quick goals and led 
the way for the six point spread. The 
Aggies led at the half (35-29), but 
the second half saw their field goal 
shooting percentage fall off to allow 
the home team to creep up. Purnell 
led the winners with 17 points, closely 
followed by Susquehanna's "big man", 
Frank Romano, with 14 points. Again 
our hats are off to Charlie Indek for 
his brilliant defensive guarding of Ro- 
mano, who had previously been av- 
eraging 29.9 points a game. 

Four Aggies hit for double figures; 
Prins with 21, followed by Bjornsen 
with 15, Briggs with 11, and Don 
Grimm collecting 10 points. 

"Philadelphia Textile tops Aggie 
five, 93-74, Barnes scores 44." 

The National Aggies sustained their 
fourth loss in 11 games this season, 
and their third loss in 7 Delaware 
Valley Conference Games, Thursday 
night, January 31, at CBHS. In un- 
doubtably one of the most crucial 
games played this season for N.A.C. 
we faced a Textile team leading the 
Conference with a 7-2 record, with 
the Aggies in the runner-up position. 
A win for the Aggies would have tied* 
both teams for first place. Hampered 
severely by the loss of star center and 
scorer Dick Prins, out for 10 days 
with an ankle injury, and CharHe In- 
dek, who is no longer with the team, 
the home side was defeated 93-74. 
The large crowd witnessed a brilliant 

performance by the leading scorer in 
the Conference, Chick Barnes, (also 
third highest scorer in the nation) as 
he ripped the cords for 44 points on 
16 field goals and 12 fouls. In addi- 
tion, Barnes scored his one thousandth 
point of his career, (he's only a Jun- 
ior) and eventually go on to break the 
Textile College record for individual 
game scoring. 

The Aggies showed that they might 
win the contest in the first half, de- 
spite the absence of Prins. Constant- 
ly coming from behind to narrow the 
margin, they almost tied the score and 
at half time trailed by ten points. 

Don Grim subbing for the injured 
Prins did a workmanlike job scoring 
11 points, converting 7 of the 9 free 
throws in the first half. 

The Textile trio of Webb, O'Don- 
nell and Barnes scored frequently 
creating a 12 point spread midway 
through the first half when the tem- 
pers were hotter than the' scoring. At 
the half time, Textile led 47-37. 

The Aggies bounced back in the 
opening minutes of the second half 
with Briggs and Bjornson scoring to 
narrow the lead to 7 points. Howe\ er, 
Barnes began scoring his 25 points of 
the second half to add to his 19 m the 
first, and there was no stopping him. 
High scorer for the Aggies was Dave 
Bjornson with 23, who played a bril- 
liant game both offensively and de- 


We would like to announce that 
Coach John Maskas has signed a con- 
tract to coach the Aggie Varsity base- 
ball team for 1957. A former All Am- 
erican and All Professional football 
player, he played baseball extensive- 
ly both in high school and college. 
Our hats off to the new coach for a 
successful season. We're predicting 
the Aggie Nine to finish well up in 
the first division of the Delaware Val- 
ley Baseball Conference this season. 


Dick Woolsey, senior dairy major, 
has recently been seen blazing a trail

SERVICE & YOU (continued) 
for a period of 4 months for indoctrin- 
ation training. After successful com- 
pletion of this training, you are a full 
fledged Ensign. This training is fol- 
lowed by 18 months of flight and ad- 
vanced flight training. It should be 
noted here that if you don't qualify in 
flight training, your commission is 
still valid. (But only as a ground of- 
ficer). If you fajMn AOC, OCS, or 
Nav Cad while m basic training you 
must fulfill your obligation with the 
Navy by remaining as an enlistj^d man 
for the balance of the 2 year period. 

If you enter the Navy as an enlisted 
man, it is a 4 year enlistment unless 
you enter under the Reserve Plan, in 
which case you are offered the oppor- 
tunities of the technical schools ( elec- 
tronics, radar, etc.). 

Advancement in rank is of slow na- 
ture in the Navy as it requires an ex- 
amination for each grade. This is 
necessary because your mark competes 
against the other men in your area 
vying for the same grade. 

I hope this covers your immediate 
questions pertaining to Naval service.

A-DAY (continued) 

Lasker Hall is a perfect spot for 
anyone interested in art or photog- 
raphy, for the exhibits there, are 
beautiful and quite complete. 

Let us not forget the fine demon- 
strations the Food Industry Club pre- 
sented last year in Segal Hall. They 
are still a topic of conversation by the 
many people who saw them. 

A-Day could not exist without the 
help of the student body, for they are 
the ones who make it successful. The 
A-Day committee itself, could not 
produce a good show without their 
support and help. 

We should remember the faculty 
and maintenance men of the college, 
for, without their help, our tremend- 
ous feats could not be accomplished. 

Last years' show was televised and 
brought our A-Day into the homes of 
thousands of families, many of whom 
had never heard of A-Day before and 
many of whom could not get away 
to see the actual show. It was a great 
success and we know that the people 
who could not get to the show last 
year will be here in person for the 
1957 A-Day. 

The A-Day committee, composed of 
a chairman, co-chairman, secretary, 
treasurer and club representatives, 
have already begun the planning of 
this year's A-Day. The committee 
hopes to produce a bigger and better 
A-Day than any other committee has 
produced thus far. 

A cordial invitation is extended to 
the freshmen, to enter the 1957 A- 
Day. We hope they will take advan- 
tage of the knowledge that they gain 
from participating in any one of the 
many A-Day events.

WITH D. Caplan 

Here we go again with my favorite 
branch of the Armed Forces, the Unit- 
ed States Army. This, the largest of 
our military services offers many op- 
portunities to a college graduate. 

Direct commissions in the Army are 
almost unheard of in our bracket. They 
are usually given to physicians, den- 
tists, chemical engineers, and bio- 
chemists. To say the least, direct com- 
mssions require a masters degree in 
a specialized field. 

To become a Second Lieutenant, 
you must attend Officers Candidate 
School. At the present time there are 
only two Officers Candidate Schools: 
The Infantry O.C.S. in Fort Benninj?, 
Georgia, and the Artillery O.C.S. in 
Fort Sill, Oklahoma. These schools 
require the following prerequisites: 
passing of the O.C.S. test upon en- 
trance into the Army, eight weeks bas- 
ic training, eight weeks advanced bas- 
ic training and then you enter O.C.S. 
This is a grueling 22 weeks course. 
Upon receiving your commission you 
are required to serve 24 months on ac- 
tive duty as an officer. During this 
tour of duty, you may request of- 
ficers schooling in other branches of 
the Army. There is definitely a good 
opportunity for graduates of our col- 
lege as the Army needs men in the 
food inspection service as well as the 
Veterinary Corps. 

The men in the food inspection ser- 
vice have the big task of purchasing 
food, storing and transportating the 
food to all the branches of the ser- 
vices. The base for the R.I.S. is located 
in Chicago and it specializes in dif- 
ferent fields of Agriculture, Agrono- 
my, Food Industry. Animal Husban- 
dry. Dairy Husbandrv. and Horticul- 
tural specialists should easily qualify 
fo'- this officer category. 

Enlisted men in the Army also may 
enter part of the food inspection 
service. This is a very simple process 
granted when you enlist for 3 years 
and request the Meat and Dairy Hy- 
giene School. As an ordinarv draftee

N,AX. Wins Again 


BY Harvey Wacker 

With the approach .of warm weath- 
er, we again begin to think of the 
Philadelphia Flower Show. This "pre- 
view of spring" consists of four acres 
of multicolored flowers and plants ar- 
ranged in exhibits and displays rang- 
ing from small potted plants to breath 
taking formal gardens. 

To many people, thoughts concern- 
ing the Flower Show begins about two 
weeks before the show. This is be- 
cause they are only drawn to the show 
by articles in the local papers, or the 
colorful posters advertising the event. 
However, people actually associated 
with, or responsible for these exhibits, 
start combining ideas early after the 
"New Year." 

The Flower Show committee must 
make their decision as to who will be 
invited in the centre aisle. These ex- 
hibitors are given the honor to display 
their talents in Ornamental Horticul- 
ture, while not being in actual compe- . 
tition. The remainder of the show is in 
open competition. As W. Atlee Bur- 
pee, Jr., show president, stated, "The 
flowers are valued at more than 
$1,000,000 and approximately $75,000 
in prizes will be awarded to exhibitors. 

The college first entered the show in 
1950 and has entered every year since 
that date. We have been asked to ap- 
pear in the center aisle on two differ- 
ent occasions, which is a great honor 
to the college and the students. Mr. 
Frederick Blau, Professor of Land- 
scape Design at the college, has been 
and will continue to be instrumental 
in our success at the show. We have, 
over the years, received two Silver 
Medals, which is the highest award 
which can be given an exhibitor. 

Mr. Blau started working on the de- 
sign in the early part of January and 
by February plants had already been 
brought into the greenhouse in pre- 
paration for the show. By this time, 
construction of the various structural 

material was also in "full swing". Dur- 
ing the month of March, the Ornamen- 
tal Horticulture department worked 
on all phases of construction, planting, 
designing until just a few days before 
the show opened. On Tuesday, March 
19, Mr. Richard Bateman, Mr. Blau 
and the Junior Ornamental Hort. stu- 
dents transported all the necessary 
props, plants, and building material 
down to Commercial Museum in 
Philadelphia, where the show was to 
be held. The final touches were com- 
pleted by three p.m. of Friday, March 
22, and all those responsible gave a 
sgh of relief. However, no one com- 
pletely relaxed until Monday morn- 
ing when the exhibits were judged. 
This year we were again awarded first 
prize for our Garden Retreat. 

To illustrate what a garden retreat 
is and what ours looked like I would 
4ike to quote an NAC Ornamental 
Hort. major. "The purpose of a gar- 
en retreat is a place for leisure in the 
garden, for the gardener to relax in 
comfortable chairs in attractive sur- 
roundings and enjoy the fruits of his 
labors. Our (?xhibit consisted of a 
terra cotta patio covered by a check- 
erboard grid; rai.sed flower beds sur- 
rounding the exhibit on three sides 
with mixed plantings of yews, axaleas,

Last Monday evening at 7 o'clock, 
the Student Council held its weekly 
meeting in Lasker Hall lounge, yet 
there was hut a handful of students 
in attendance. More students should 
attend to see just how your Student 
Council operates. This year's Student 
Council is quite a liberal spender, not 
unwisely, but in an almost wanton 

In making awards, the President 
has always been the chief promoter. 
In previous years, the Student Coun- 
cil members have always disqualified 
themselves from receiving such awards 
because they considered it sufficient 
honor to be chosen to represent the. 
students on the council. This year, 
however, such a policy has not been; 
observed, particularly with regards to 
the "Outstanding Senior in Sport.**" 
award. Of course, the rules are ar- 
ranged so that they eliminate almost 
everyone, but what's one award- Just 
a piece of metal costing $15.00. 

We must commend the Student 
Council for the excellent work they 
have done this year. The food situa- 
tion has improved and the game room 
has been used considerably more of- 
ten since the new games and ping 
pong table has been installed. One of 
the most outstanding achievements is 
the student award program, for hon-

Thus far this semester, the Varsity 
Club has been very active. The club 
took a trip to New York City to at- 
tend a hockey game, following by a 
tour of Greenwich Village. The club 
also plans to show quite a few movies 
during the semester. "Father Was a 
Fullback" was one of the recent at- 
tractions. "Kid from Left Field" will 
be seen shortly. A trip to Philadelphia 
to see a baseball game is also being 

To enrich the club treasury, the 
members are compiling a Student Di- 
rectory of all NAC students and their 
home addresses. It will be placed on 
sale shortly. 

The underclassmembers of the club 
are planning to give gifts to all the 
senior members to show their appre- 
ciation to the seniors for their par- 
ticipation in sports and NAC athlec- 
tic activities. 


The Animal Husbandry Club has 
shown several movies on the cattle 
industry this semester. One of which 
concerned the activities of the rumen 
and the digestive tract of the cow. 

On April 4 and 5, the club is plan- 
ning a field trip to Penn. State to visit 
the College of Agriculture. 

"A-Day" was discussed at length at 
the meetings. The officers hope that 
all the members will cooperate to help 
produce the best "A-Day" the college 
has known. 


If you want to know which is the 
most active club on campus, ask any 
"F. I." man. He'll say "Food Industry, 
of course". You may disagree with him 
but he has a good reason for saying 
that his club is the most active. The 
FI Club is the only club on campus 
that meets at least once every week. 
In the last semester, they have had 7 
movies pertaining to Food Industry 
and related fields. 

On March 15, the club accompan- 
ied by Dr. Elson, Dr. Turner, and Mr. 
Frazer, took a field trip to the Nu- 
clear Congress at Convention Hall in 
Philadelphia. At the Congress, there 
were exhibits pertaining to Atomic 
Energy, Isotopes for soils in Agricul- 
ture and many other interesting sub- 

Future plans of the club include 
field trips to Fairless Steel Co. and the 
USD A Research Lab in Philadelphia. 
The possibility of sponsoring a dance 
has also been discussed.

"Aggies Wind Up Basketball Set- 
son, Prepare for Baseball Opener". 

Hi sports fans, let's bring you up 
to date with the going's on in the 
sports world at one of the better small 
colleges in the U. S.; N.A.C., of course. 

The Aggie varsity completed the 
1956-57 basketball season March 7th 
winning over King's College, 95-84, 
thus posting all win, 10 loss record. 
This win enabled the locals to remain 
in the 3rd place in the Delaware Val- 
ley Conference and by winning 
shoved King's College into 2nd place, 
thereby enabling Philadelphia Textile 
to win the conference title. 

Record wise, the Aggies placed 14th 
out of 26 teams in scoring averages in 
the Philadelphia area with their 11-10 
log showing an average 70.5 points per 
game, edging Princeton, Swarthmore, 
and Penn. In the individual scoring 
department the Aggies number one 
scoring threat, Dick Prins placed 12th 
in scoring among some 40 odd scor- 
ers with an average of 19.7 points per 
game. This figure was based on Dick's 
20 games played and 161 field goals, 
72 fouls for a total of 394 points. Dick 
is a fine tribute to the college he re- 
presents. One other note on Prins, 
congratulations on being named to the 
Philadelphia Area's small college bas- 
ketball team and also being invited to 
a banquet honoring him and the other 
plavers named to the team on March 

Speaking or rather writing about 
basketball, how about Dave Bjorson 
this season? Dave performed bril- 
liantly throughout the second half of 
the season winding up 29th in scoring 
in the Philadelphia area with a scor- 
ing average of 14.9 points per game 
based on 20 games, in which he scored 
122 field goals and 68 fouls for a total 
of 312 points. Picking up the season 
where we left off in the last edition 
of our "Scoureboard" column, we'll 
run down the finals. On Feb. 5, the 
Aggies lost to Jersey City State Teach- 
ers College by 10 points 69-59 at Jer- 
ser City. Still missing Prins, who was 
hampered by an ankle injury, the lo- 
cals lost their 2nd straight contest. A 
collection of 10 straight in the last 
period gave the Gothics their sixth 
win. Don Grim who played in spring 
ball this season led the scoring for 
the home side with 13 points, while 
Don Brandes led J. C, with 20 points. 

Feb. 7th found the Aggies home at 
C.B.H.S. where thev defeated the 
league's cellar dweller Philadelphia 
Pharmacy, 71-61. Pacing the victors 
with 24 points, on 11 field goals and 
two fouls, was 6-4 Dave Bjorson. This 

game marked an ankle injury to for- 
ward Jack Briggs in leaping for a 
loose ball in the third period. Briggs 
had to ^ leave the game after scoring 
13 points. Vince Morone led the losers 
with 19 points.' The junior varsity 
won its sixth win in their victorious 
season 45-30. The scoring leaders in 
the J. V. game were shared by Dick 
Bauman, Dave Linde and Bob Grim, 
each contributing 7 points. 

Feb. 11th the green and gold tra- 
veled to Kutztown where the State 
Teachers handed the Aggies their 
sixth loss 80-71. Dick Prins banking 
shots in from all angles led the losers 
with 22 points. This was an extremely 
well played contest, with the lead 
changing hand 15 times and being tied 
seven times. Kutztown winning on 
foul shots although the Aggies had a 
better percentage from, the line. 

Feb. 14th, Dave Bjornson led the 
Aggies to 67-53 win over Temple 
Pharmacy scoring 23 points. In a 
rather loosely played contest the lo- 
cals had littl«f trouble irt subduing the 
Druggists. The highlight of the even- 
ing was at halftime at which time Dick 
Prins Night took place, honoring the 
athlete on behalf of his contributions 
to sports and student life by the Stu- 
dent Council and Junior Class. The 
gifts presented to Prins totaling over 
$.W, included a clock radio from his 

The Aggies were hosted at Briar 
Cliffe Manor on Feb. 16th by King's 
College in which the locals lost a 
squeaker, 100-93. Prins scored his 
1,000th point of his college scoring 
career in this game, totaling 19 for the 
evening. Probably playing the best 
game to date the varsity hit on 45 per 
cent of their shots yet were outdone 
by King's, 50 per cent. Bjornson led 
the team with 23 points with Tony 
Cabales contributing 18, and Grim 16. 
Dick Crawford led the Purple Knights 
with 32 points. 

Feb. 18th, Cheyney State Teachers 
College defeated N.A.C. by a 101-92 
tally. This road game was marked by 
the fine playing of Dave Bjornson who 
ripped the cords for 30 points fol- 
lowed by Grim's 23 and Prin's 22. 

On Feb. 21st the Aggies reversed 
their lost to Jersey City State Teach- 
ers by winning at home, 78-71. 

Feb. 26th Glassboro State hog tied 
the l(K'als by an 82-69 score, their 
( Glassboro's ) .seventh win against 9 
losses. The varsity was hampered by 
the small court. Aggies ace Prins was 
high for the losers with 30 jwints and 
Bob Belle led in victors with 26. The 
j. V. dropped a prelim contest by a 
70-6^ score, on a foul shot by Kayek. 
John Merrill who played a brilliant 
season for the J. V. scored 28 points.' 

The scheduled game with Haverford 
College was postponed due to bad 
weather and road conditions and 
could not be re-scheduled. 

Mar. 1st the Aggies lost to Cheyney 
in a home game played at the Doyles- 
town Armory, the score 69-68. Dick 
Prins was taken ill before the game 
was more than a few minutes old and 
had to be removed. The Wolverines 
in the remaining time continued to 
build up a lead and remained ahead 
even though they were almost being 
overtaken in the last period. Tony 
Cabrales was high with 15 points. 

The season's, finale against King's 
College was the team's finest moment 
fired by a large crowd and adequate 
support with a 95-84 win over King's 
College. We don't regard this win as 
an upset nor did the team, as many ob- 
servers have stated the locals simply 
outhustled their opponents at every 
turn and the surprised Knights lost 
their chance for a tie for the confer- 
ence lead. Dick Prins led the varsity 
with 23, but was outdone by Don 
Wrigley with 29 for King's. 

The J. V. also won for a double 
header treat, 54-48 in the opener. John 
Merrill led the J. V. with 25 points 
plus an additional 10 points in the 
varsity game for a total of 35 points 
for the night. Bruce Hoick and Barr\- 
Tomshe played a standout game for 
the victors. Hoick electrified the 
crowd with his defensive play guard- 
ing Don Crawford. 

Congratulations to Coach Ted Gehl- 
man for his winning season as a fresh- 
man coach with the Aggies. We expect 
N.A.C. to win the Conference title 
next season. 

Next issue will feature the pre .sea- 
son predictions and a run down on 
the 1957 edition of the Aggies Varsity 
baseball team. Remember, if you can't 
play a sport, be one , . .

On April 27, the freshmen class will 
hold its annual prom. This year the 
location is the beautiful Huntington 
Valley Country Club. There will be 
refreshments and dancing till one ac- 
companied by the music of a well 
known orchestra. 

Like all the other freshman classes, 
this year's class is having a rough time 
collecting dues. Bill Kennedy, class 
treasurer, has mentioned the fact that 
quite a few have not paid a cent and 
are not going to until it is aKsolutely 
necessary. Come on men, get going! 

The upper two floors of Ulman Hall 
are usually a hubub of noise, laughter 
and strange odors. Let's try to keep it

there is a slight chance you may be 
sent for 8 weeks to this in Chicago, 
and the only prerequisite is basic 
training. Lester Ludwig class of '55 
did not attend this school but was put 
on the job directly as a food bacter- 
iologist in Walter Reed Hospital, 
Washington, D. C. He was a Food In- 
dustry major. Here is one branch of 
Meat and Dairy Hygiene School that 
teaches the student inspection of 
food and food products prior to pur- 
chase and during the course of Manu- 

The Army also has a 8 week basic 
training school for enlisted men in 
Fort Belvoir, Virginia, specializing in 
water purification. This branch deals 
with the control of water supply at 
various military bases. The men in this 
branch not only do lab analysis of 
water but are thoroughly familiar 
with the set up of temporary and per- 
manent water filtration plants. Also at 
Fort Belvoir there is a 9 week course 
for the qualification of soils techni- 
cians, teaching men the procedure for 
standard tests on soils, concrete, ag- 
gregates, bituminous and other base 

Another popular branch of the 
Army for draftees with agricultural 
background is the Medical Goros. In 
the Class of 56, Glen Wrigley, Henrv 
Carpenter and Charles Green were all 
sent for Medic training in Fort Sam 
Houston, Texas, among the many 
medic branches, are such jobs as lab 
technicians, field Corpsman and hos- 
pital corpsman. 

The chemical school at Fort McClel- 
lan, Alabama, is set up to instruct en- 
listed men in the use of smoke and 
chemical agents in the atomic, biolo- 
gical and chemical warfare. Men in 
this branch have duties to perform, 
laboratory tests to analyze, and iden- 
tify and develop a variety of organic 
and inorganic substances. 

Naturally the Army places draftees 
where they are qualified and where 
the need is greatest. Although you 
may be asked to request a school upon 
entering the Army needs at the parti- 
cular time. Several N.A.C. students 
and graduates who were in the ser- 
vice at the time I was serving, had the

dogwood, and birches. As one enters 
the retteat, attention is focused on a 
two-level pool with a spouting foun- 
tain. At the left of the fountain is a 
small section of ground cover and 
grass area. At the extreme left end of 
the exhibit is a paper birch in a tile 
retainer. Two sides of the entire re- 
treat are enclosed by bamboo lath 

In conclusion, I would like to ex- 
press the feelings of the entire Furrow 
staff in giving thanks and recognition 
to Mr. Blau, Mr. Bateman, the Orna- 
mental Hort. men, and all others con- 
nected with the exhibit and wish them 
success in future years.

it will give a little incentive to the 
other students to refrain from tossing 
trash onto the drives and lawns. 

"A-Day" is just around the corner 
and we are glad to see that all the pro- 
jects are beginning to take shape now. 
We hope that all the Freshmen are 
doing something for "A-Day" because 
we know that Mom and Pop will want 
to see something accomplished by 
"our Johnny."

The Dairy Club recently had Dave 
Borsoi (class of '51) as their guest 
speaker at a recent meeting. Dave is 
connected *with the Lehigh Valley 
Artificial Breeding Coop. Dave spoke 
on the opportunities for graduates in 
the artificial breeding service. 

Future plans of the Agronomy Club 
include such things as a possible trio 
to Cornell University. The club will 
sponsor the farm machinery display. 
It will be held at the Segal Hall park- 
ing lot. 

There will also be individual ex- 
hibits in the Botany Laboratory con- 
cerning Soil Conservation, Forage 
Crops and Seed Identification. 

The Hort. Club has been very busy 
this semester in preparation for "A-

ment of Allman Hall for the exhibits, 
they are running into many difficul- 

Students are invited to enter the

The club is planning a trip to Belts- 
ville, Md., and Washington, early in

The biggest blunder that has oc- 
cured lately in the student body was 
the worm situation. This not only 
caused disruption here at the college 
but also attracted unfavorable outside 
attention. The entire subject was com- 
pletely misunderstood by both the 
students and the outsiders. There was 
no cause for such talk as the entire 
matter was based on rumors. We hope 
that the individuals responsible for 
this falsehood will realize the ser- 
iousness of it. It definitely lacked good 
judgment on their part. 

The council is definitely pleased 
with the response from the student 
body with regards to the weekly room 
inspection. It is a definite asset to the 
college to have the rooms neat and 
orderly. The dormitories look much 
more attractive and impressive to vis- 
itors and guests. 

All Sports Night, scheduled for 
sometime in March, has been can- 
celled due to the lack of interest with- 
in the student body. 

The intramural baseball league is 
in full swing and everyone is more 
than enthusiastic. Dick Prins will head 
the league this year. Trophies will be 
awarded to the top scoring team. Al 
Cavallo and the seniors are really out 
to get the trophy this year. Good luck, 

An athletic trophy will be presented 
at graduation to the senior who has 
participated in athletics and attained 
a high academic average along with 
leadership qualities. 

The administration is disturbed by 
the excessive noise and banging on the 
tables at meal time. The seniors are 
accused of being the instigators of 
this rioting. This doesp't accomplish 
anything and is most annoying to all. 
We are expected to set an example of 
the college, so let's do it the right way. 

The Student Council is planning to 
award merit certificates to club mem- 
bers who have done outstanding work 
in their organization. The certificates 
will be presented at a banquet which 
will be held near the close of the 
school year. 

"A-Day" is creeping up on us rather 
cjuickly, so let's all pitch in and make 
it the best one we have ever had. 

That's about all for this issue, but

Library Notes 

By Evelyn H. Allen, Lihramm 

Back in 1868, a man bv the name of 
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote in his 
Jonrnal, "In the perplexity in which 
the literary public now stands with 
regard to university education, wheth- 
er studies shall be elective or compul- 
sory, whether by lectures . . . whether 
the stress shall be on Latin or Greek, 
or on modern science . . . the one safe 
investment which all can agree to in- 
crease is the Library". 

We know that we are serving in- 
stead of a "literary public", a public 
determined to know all they can in 
their special field, and it has been our 
aim, not entirely achieved, as you all 
know, to supply the information tlvit 
you seek in the Library, efficiently 
and quickly. A great deal of our trou- 
ble is due to the gap in our files of 
Periodicals, Reports and Documents, 
due to the fact that some students in 
the past did not recognize that this 
material might be needed by other 
students so they neglected to retiun 
it to the Library. The same situation 
is true with many books. This year 
- we have been open every week, twen- 
ty-six hours more than previously, and 
these hours have always been super- 
vised. Each book and periodical has 
been charged by us to a card made out 
for every student and every faculty 
member, yet we are still missing mate- 

Ethically you can't be casual about 
property that belongs to some one else, 
so we beg all of you to take a look 
around your dormitory and your 
rooms, and when you see a periodical 
or book belonging to the library, bring 
it in. No questions asked! No recrim- 

Now this Library is your "safe in- 
vestment". Many of you have seen that 
and have added to the book collec- 
tion by gifts of books for recreational 
reading. We are especially grateful 
to Edward Cooper for almost a hini- 
dred volumes of popular titles and to 

(Continued on page 4) 


Since the last report on "A-Day", 
which appeared in the last issue of 
the Furrow, we have come a long way 
in accomplishing the many activities 
which will take place. 

Each meeting of your "A-Day" Com- 
mittee brought the many ideas closer 
together and now to reality. There 
has been considerable response by the 
student body in this year's "A-Day". I 
have asked the Freshmen to take ad- 
vantage of this day and the know- 
ledge they will gain by their partici- 
pation. VVell, much to my surprise, 
the response was excellent. All the 
clubs have reported that close to 90 
per cent of the members have respond- 
ed. Do not think that the remaining 
10 per cent are backing down because 
there are many jobs which are done 
<W "A-Day" which we never hear of. 
The paper work and advertising which 
is such a vital part of "A-Day" is just 
as important as the exhibits or show- 

Here is a list of events that you will 
sec at this year's "A-Day".

With this issue, the Furrow con- 
cludes, what we feel, was a very suc- 
cessful year. It is the first printed 
paper in the history of the College. 
This year the Furrow came out month- 
ly, but next year, if the financial sup- 
port becomes assured, we hope to 
make the paper a biweekly one. The 
Furrow will also expand to six pages 
and include more photographs. 

We have received very favorable 
comment from the student body, the 
Faculty, and the Administration and 
it was these comments that kept us 
going. As retiring Editor of the Fur- 
row, I would like to thank new Editor 
Tom Dall for all the help and coop- 
eration he has given me, and Student 
Council President Tom Watson for 
the support he gave us by financing 
the first issue of the Furrow. I believe 
that without Tom's help, we would 
still be in the planning stage. Tom also 
served as our Sports Editor. My thanks 
also the the Seniors and Freshmen 
who wrote, typed and edited faith- 
fully, and without whose help we 
could not have gone to press. 

I hope all the Seniors make it to 
the refreshment party to be held May 
6. A tentative place is the Doylestown 

. The Senior Sports Trophy which 
was to be a>yarded seems to have been 
forgotten about. The Student Council 
must have decided that it would not 
be very useful. 

NOTE: I have already given Tom 
Dall my two bucks for my subscrip- 
tion to the Furrow, so that I will know 
what's going on after graduation. I 
hope that every one can do the same.

The ALUMNI of N.A.C. 

by Lorenzo Fonseca M. 

Even if you have not heard too 
njuch about the alumni of N.A.C. they 
are very active and have a wonderful- 
ly organized association. 

There are two chapters, the Doyles- 
town Agricultural Chapter which in- 
cludes tne Philadelphia Chapter and 
the New England Cfiapter; a thu-d 
one, the New Jersey Chapter, is in 
process of being started by Arthur 
Collings (Class of 53). Each chapter 
has a monthly meeting which is main- 
ly dedicated to social activities. These 
meetings are held at the homes of the 
members of the chapters. 

There are approxmiately 300 grad- 
uates of N.A.C. The president of the 
Alumni Association is Ken Mayer 
(Class of 25); the secretary, David 
Segal (Class of 37) and the corres- 
ponding secretary, Oskar Larson, As- 
sistant Dean (Class of 52); each chap- 
ter has its own secondary president. 
In the Doylestown Chapter it is Mar- 
ty Brooks (Class of 54) and in the 
New England Chapter it is Norman 
Berkowitz. There are also two men to 
contact all the alumni for mailing con- 
tributions, they are Joshua Feldstein 
(Class of 52) and Aaron Lavine 
(Class of 37). 

The alumni have a publication, "The 
Alumni Gleanings" which contains in- 
formation only about alumni activi- 
ties and keeps them in touch with the 

They are now collecting money to 
contribute to the new extension of the 
library and the New England Chapter 
is obtaining books to put in the library, 

About this time of the year the of- 
ficers of the association start to busy 
themselves trying to organize the an- 
nual reunion weekend of all the alum- 
ni of N.F.S. and N.A.C. 

This year, on March 10, there was 
a meeting of the Executive Committee 
to plan the reunion weekend for this 
year and the first home coming game. 
At the meeting it was decided to have 
the reunion on the weekend of June 
22-23 and the program was arranged 
as follows: Saturday, June 22, recrea- 
tion and sports activities such as swim- 
ming, playing baseball, volleyball and 
others; in the evening, dinner and at 
the Country Side Inn and dancing. 

The alumni and their families will 
sleep in the new dormitory. Sunday, 
June 23, the Foundation Committee 
will have a meeting at 10:00 a.m. and 
then from 10:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. the 
Alumni Association will have another 
meeting after which lunch will be 
served. They all are looking forward 
to the first home game on October

"Aggies Split with Rutgers" 

The National Agricultural College 
baseball team opened its season April 
12, at Rutgers of South Jersey. Last 
year the Aggies finished in the and 
star in the Delaware Valley Confer- 
enc eafter a playoff which they lost to 
Glassboro State on a mishap. Last sea- 
son's record was 5 wins, 3 losses, with 
several games rained out. 

The Varsity once again this year 
will be led by Bill Scott, both pitching 
and hitting, and undoubtedly one of 
the best players we have seen in Ag- 
gie uniform. This year's captain, fami- 
liar sight with his lusty bat, is Sid 
Blair. Slated as the number two pitch- 
er, Blair started the season in center- 
field and is likely to remain in that 
position at which he was named to the 
Delaware Valley Conference All State 
Team in 19^. 

At first base, a new face, former 
outfielder pitcher, Malcolm McCarty. 
Mai takes over the spot vacated by the 
departed Aggie star Ronnie Stammel. 
At shortstop, a newcomer who hits for 
the distance and a smooth fielder and 
glove man is Emory Markovic. Sec- 
ond base finds a returning veteran in 
the presence of Senior Tom McMinn, 
together with Markovic comprise a 
formidable double play combination. 
At the "hot corner" returns letterman 
and ace glove man Dave Weinberg. 
The outfield is rounded out with vet- 
eran Bernie Bunn and Tom Watson. 
Bunn shifted to left field this season 
from his all star position in right field. 

Behnd the plate, another new addi- 
tion in the presence of catcher Mai 
Maldonado from Springfield, Pa., 
former University of Delaware receiv- 
er. Other familiar faces from other var- 
sity seasons include reserve catcher 
and pinch hitter, John Lesko, and all 
around utility man. The very flashy 
glove man from Camden, New Jersey, 
Walt Kendzierski ( Good luck on your 
big day in May, Walt). Underclass- 
men back with the Varsity include Jon 
Potashnick, outfielder. Junior, Al 
Smith, and Soph, outfielder Richard 
Wilkins. The new faces of the 1957 
team include Seniors, Bernie Burg- 
hardt, Dave McCarthy; Junior, Carlie 
Max; and Freshmen, Carl Blatt, Joe 
Siatkowski, Ralph Sturm and Dave 
Wise. Managers this season are Sen- 
iors Hal (Jeff) Jefferies and Merald 
(Sock) Sockwell. 

Coach this season is John Masciis, 
associated at the present time with 
Central Bucks High School. 

The season's opener found the Ag- 

gies winning at the expense of the Rut- 
gers team at Camden, by a crushing 
lO-l score. Bill Scott pitched a bril- 
liant, one hitter missing a no hitter 
by a single over shortstop in the sec- 
ond innmg. Rutgers scored their only 
run in that inning on a run facili- 
tated by an error by Scott, a single by 
Hermann and 2 bases on balls. Fol- 
lowing this "jam", Scott was in com- 
plete control allowing only 2 runners 
as far as second base in the eight inn- 
ing contest. "Billy" struck out 8 and 
walked 4. Swede Larsen was the los- 
ing pitcher, going the route striking 
out 5, walking 4. Hitting stars for the 
Aggies were Sid Blair who drove in 3 
runs with a double, (he also added a 
single later) and Emory Markovic 
who had 3 hits including a double. 
Bernie Bunn also chipped in 2 hits. 

The locals scored 4 runs in the third 
on 4 hits, and picked up four more in 
the eight innings.

With Dave Caplan 

At the present time, the most glam- 
orous of all the services is the U. S. 
Air Force. Because of its comparative 
youth, increased use and the use of 
newer equipment it is a very popular 
service for recruiting. 

Let us look at the opportunities it 
offers graduates of an agriculturel col- 
lege. The Air Force offers no direct 
commissions to male applicants. The 
only way to obtain a commission is 
to attend Air Force Officer Candidate 
School to become a ground officer, or 
to go thru the Aviation Cadet Program 
for pilots and aircraft obser\'ers. 

Attendance in the Air Force OCS is 
not particularly encouraged because 
of the over-abundance of ground of- 
ficers at the present time. Upon ask- 
ing for literature for this phase, the 
recruiting service turned my request 
down. So the Air Force is evidently 
looking for flying officers and aircraft 

To become an Air Force pilot you 
must be physically fit, between 19 and 
26)2 years of age, be a high school or 
college graduate, single and pass the 
Air Force aptitude test. The training 
consists of 4 phases : 

First, the Pre Flight, for 3 months 
of intensive officer training, orienta- 
tion, and physical conditioning. 

Secondly, you are given 6 months of 
flying training before entering Basic 
Training. This is known as the Flight 
Screening and Primary. This includes 
20 hours of light plane training and 
120 hours of flight training in the T-6 
or 'Texan". This is when the cadet 
takes his solo flights. Classroom sub- 
jects in this part include leadership, 
military law, supply and logistics, and 
military management. 

The next phase consists of having 
an assignment to either a single or 
multi engine training. This lasts ap- 
proximately 5 months. Single engine 
training consists of flying the T-33 
trainer jet and the T-28. The multi- 
engine plane flown is the B-25 for a 
total of 100 hours. This is known as 
basic training. Upon completion of 
basic training, a second lieutenant's 
commission is awarded. 

The final phase consists of 12 to 20 
weeks of advanced training in combat- 
type aircraft. Such planes as F-86, 
F-94 and the B-47 are used. 

Upon receiving your commission, 
the Air Force requires you to serve 
3 years of active duty. 

To be an aircraft observer, a 12 
week pre-flight course is required fol- 
lowed by 40 weeks of primary basic 
training. This training principally 
deals with navigation skills. After this 

your commission is awarded. These 
men are designated as aviators, 

Cadets receive $109.20 per month 
dur^g training plus the usual free 
room, board, dental and medical care 
and uniforms. When commissioned, a 
Second Lieutenant is paid $438.53 
per month plus an uniform allowance. 

As for enlisted men, the Air Force 
offers a variety of technical schools 
that are too numerous to mention. Col- 
lectively, the Air Force has little to 
offer other than Air transportation and 
combat flying. Additional information 
may be secured at 202 DeKalb Street, 
Norristown, Pa. 

LIBRARY NOTES (continued) 
William Antao for a^ excellent collec- 
tion of the same type. With the added 
hours of opening, we believe the Li- 
brary can also be a good place for re- 
creational reading. From Poultry to 
Poetry, isn't such a far cry; and from 
Co-operative Farming to the coopera- 
tion between nations is a logical path 
to travel. 

In the Library we should like to 
know that those who leave the Colle?»e 
will not only know how to produce the 
world's finest food but will also have 
food for thought, and when the work 
in the field is done and it is time to 
put up your feet and relax with a good 
book you will know what you want to 
read, so try browsing around amon<^ 
some of the best books in the gal- 
lery now. 

A happy vacation to all of you, and 
when you return in the Fall, we may 
have a New Look. 

"A-DAY" (continued) 

all the students will try to make this 

sale a profitable one. 

The first part of the show will begin 
with the judging of animals followed 
by the many events listed in the pro- 

I would also like to say a few words 
about our dedication of the "A-Day" 
program. TTiis year, it took many hours 
of di.scussion to find someone worthy 
of this honor. We have found someone 
we feel is worthy of this dedication 
because of his past help and fine 
sportsmanship in past "A-Days". The 
dedication will remain a secret until 
"A-Day", so see the first page of your 
program for the dedication. 

We are looking forward to the best 
"A-Day" ever, but the one thing which 
we cannot determine is the weather. 
So, with good weather, goes the best 
"A-Day" yet.

President Work announced today, 
that plans for construction of the new 
gym are nearly completed and con- 
struction will begin in early spring. 
The announcement was welcomed by 
students and faculty alike for both 
have felt the need for a new gym- 
nasium since fire destroyed the 
Loucheim Auditorium in November 

The building, designed by the archi- 
tectural firm of Martin and Gilmour 
of Doylestown, will be of the most 
modern and efficient design. Seven 
different plans had been submitted 
before the final choice was made. 
Construction data is not yet confirmed 
and many points are still to be de- 
cided upon but the building will prob- 
ably be constructed of brick veneer 
with wooden trusses supporting an 
asplialt shingle roof. 

The building will be located on the 
West sidf of the campus between 
Segal Hall and the parking lot facing 
Alumni l^ane. This location was care- 
fully selected so as to have the build- 
ing centrally and conveniently located 
near the playing areas and adjacent to 
other buildings. 

The gym, when built, will be one 
of the very few full size gymnasiums 
in the according to the N.C.A.A. 
The dimensions of the room proper 
will be 90 ft. by 108 ft. and that of the 
playing floor 50 ft. by 90 ft. in com- 
parison with the 50 ft. by 80 ft. playing 
floor of Central Bucks High School in 
Doylestown. The seating capacity of 
the gym will exceed 1500 with 650 
seats on two sides of the floor and an 
additional portable platform on an- 
other side. 

Facilities in the new gym will in- 
clude: two dressing rooms complete 
with showers and toilets, a 15 by 20 ft. 
training room, an equipment room, 
drying room and an office for the 
coach. Although the original plan in- 
corporated a book store and a student 
lounge, the idea was rejected and in- 
stead will be added to the National 
Agricultural College Development 

Along with the preceding informa- 
tion, the student body will also be 
pleased to learn that all of next sea- 
son's games in the new gym, have 
been scheduled as home games. 

The Furrow Staff, on behalf of the 
student body, extends to Dean Meyer 
a most cordial and hearty welcome on 
his return to the college. Dean Meyer 
returned in January after an absence 
of almost 5 months. 


On the 2, 3, 4, and 5 of March, a 
team from the Middle States Associa- 
tion of Colleges will visit the campus 
to decide whether or not we should 
be granted membership in that organi- 
zation. For the past two years the 
College has been preparing for this 
visit. The curricula have been revised; 
plans for new buildings completed; 
our present physical plant recon- 
ditioned. All this and more the Col- 
lege has done in preparation for this 

These men will evaluate our pro- 
gram, using our self-evaluation report 
as a guide, and will detennine and 
show us our faults and weaknesses. 

If they decide our program is a 
sound one, membership will be 
granted. If they find us to be weak or 
lacking in some respect, membership 
will be denied for the present. 

Membership in this organization 
will mean much to the College. We 
will be recognized throughout the 
country. Our graduates will find it 
easier to gain admittance to graduate 
schools and obtain certain govern- 
ment positions. The College would be 
eligible for Ford Foundation and 
other educational grants. 

If we do not achieve membership, 
we must not feel that we have lost. 
We must remember that the College 
is young . . . we have only enjoyed the 
status of a senior college for ten years. 
Many of our graduates at present do

The College then is well prepared 
for this visit, the job now is ours. We 
must show this team the respect we 
have for the College and be loyal in 
our support of it. 


On Wednesday, December 19, a 
student-faculty convocation was held 
in the Segal Hall Auditorium to pre- 
sent awards to the various judging 
teams. President Werk opened the 
program and spoke to the student 
body concerning accreditation. He 
stated that the library, which has been 
overlooked in the past, will become of 
growing importance in the future. The 
library now has almost 1,000 books on 
order and more are to be ordered in 
the future. President Work announced 
that classes in the proper use of the 
library and its facilities would be 
given in the near future for all 

Don Grim, Student Council Presi- 
dent, introduced Dr. Pelle, who pre- 
sented the awards to the Animal Hus- 
bandry team. Dr. Pelle commented on 
the toughness of our competition in 
all these contests inasmuch as we are 
the .smallest college (the only pri- 
vate agricultural college), competing 
against large universities. This year 
the Animal Husbandry team traveled 
to Timonia, Virginia, and to Spring- 
field, Mass. At Timonia we ended up 
11th out of 12 and at Springfield, we 
were 5th out of 8 teams. Awards were 
presented to John Dolan, Ray Heinzle- 
man, Jerry McMahon, Bill Scott, and 
Norm Weisgarber. The four Junior 
alternates receiving awards were Leon 
Furth, Bart Glass, Jay Watson, and 
Sam Wilson. 

Mr. Brown, Prof, of Dairy Hus- 
bandry, was then called on to speak. 
He mentioned all the work, diligence, 
and heartache which goes into the 
preparation for these shows, which i.s 
never really appreciated. The Dairy 
team attended onlv one contest— at 
Springfield, Mass., where we won 

ninth pl^ce out of fourteen, tieing 
Penn State. The team consisted of 
Warren Buckman, who received first 
in the Ayrshire class; Pete Stollery, 
Agronomy major; and Bob Grim, who 
was high man on the team. Kenneth 
Sausville, a sophomore student, was 

Presentation of awards was made to 
the Horticulture Judging Team by 
Professor Purmell. This year the Col- 
lege entered only the Eastern States 
Collegiate Contest which was held at 
West Virginia University, Morgan- 
town, West Virginia. The College won 
second place with 84%; West Virginia 
was first with 86%; Rutgers placed last 
with 83%. The team was composed of 
Richard Haas, Malcolm McCarty, and 
Richard McLoughlin', Mr. Feldstein 
coached the team and accompanied 
them to the contest. Mr. Purmell an- 
nounced that next year a new course 
would be offered in Fruit Judging. 


Each college student . . . invests in 
his education nearly $1600 a year, 
covering tuition, fees, housing, meals, 
books, etc. This means that by the 
time he reaches the first semester of 
his senior year he has invested in his 
education a minimum of $5,(XX). Is it 
worth jeopardizing this investment 
simply to get a better grade on a quiz? 
Does the student who is tempted to 
cheat think his classmates are not 
aware of what he is doing? He should 
realize that these are in all probability 
the people with whom he will be 
doing business when he graduates. 
Also some teachers, at least, will be 
asked to rate the students for many 
things, among which will be honesty. 
These ratings are available to pro- 
spective employers when the time 
comes for job interviews. 

Considering all this, I do not see 
how any student in his right mind 
could live with his own conscience 
and chance jeopardizing his career by 
cheating on any examination, quiz, or 
final examination. (The foregoing ar- 
ticle by Professor George Byler of 
The Philadelphia Textile Institute, ap-

The basketball squad this year 
under Coach Ted Gehlman is a typical 
Aggie team with plenty of spirit and 
hustle. Co-captains of this year's team 
are Senior Dick Prins, the perennial 
Aggie high scorer, and Tony Cabrales, 
the dribbling specialist from El Salva- 
dore who returns for the second year 
at this position. 

At the forward positions, the start- 
ers will be picked from lettermen 
Dave Bjornson, a Junior, Senior Bill 
Haller, Don Grim, 1956-57 co-captain, 
and Junior John Merrill. Two promis- 
ing forwards are Dave Linde and 
Frosh Carl Pfeufer. 

At center is Co-captain Dick Prins 
who does a terrific job. Dick is a team 
player who has set about every scor- 
ing record at N.A.C. 

In the guard posts, returning letter- 
men include Tony Cabrales, Jack 
Briggs, a 3-year member of the team, 
Barry Tomshe, a fast Senioif and 
Senior highlight Bruce Hoick. Emory 
Markovic, a fast improving Soph, will 
be seeing some action also. 

The schedule this year is extremely 
tough and full. It is even tougher inas- 
much as we have the disadvantage of 
having no home floor on which to 
practice. However, Coach Ted Gehl- 
man and his team have worked hard 
and— win or lose— every game will be 
hard fought by our men. 

The results thus far:

The Annual Football. Banquet was 
held in Lasker Hall December 3, hon- 
oring the players on their excellent 
record of six wins and one loss for the 
1957 season. 

Ken Mayer, President of the Alumni 
Association, acted as toastmaster and 
did a great job. President Work wel- 
comed the alumni and guests, con- 
gratulated the team, and spoke about 
the new gymnasium he said will be 
erected soon. 

Mr. GHck, athletic director, outlined 
next year's program and assured us 
that we would be playing 8 games 
instead of 7. Head Coach Pete Pihos, 
and his assistant Ted Gehlman, also 
said a few words to the team. 

The guest speaker for the evening, 
through the courtesy of Mr. Forbes 
and the Contemporary Club was Mr. 
Leonard Watters, head coach of Wil- 
liams College. Mr. Watters spoke on 
the future of football in small colleges 
in the United States. 

Mr. Pihos made the presentation of 
awards. Bob Rush was selected as 
outstanding back and Bernie Bunn as 
the outstanding lineman. Captain Don 
Grim received the President's Trophy 
and was also cited for outstanding 
sportsmanship and leadership. The 
presentation of the President's Trophy 
was made by Mr. Click in Mr. Work's 
absence. Bob Rush was selected as 
next year's captain. 

We extend our hearty congratula- 
tion to the players, coaches and every- 
one who helped make the 1957 foot- 
ball season the best in the school's 


There have been several official 
College functions this year which 
students and faculty attended, yet at 
none of these functions was the Col-

sung at last year's Commencement

absent from these affairs? In fact, I 
often wonder just how many students 

Music for the Birds 

"Music hath charms . . ." says an 
old adage. Can it also help raise bet- 
ter chickens? Well, Aaron Bisberg, 
owner of the Pot of Gold chicken 
farms at Tariffville and East Granby, 
Conn., thinks so. As the poultry -trade 
monthly Cackle and Crow reports in 
July, Bisberg has installed music-by- 
Muzak for his flock of 27,000 rock 
cornish meat birds, and he insists that 
the 8 A.M. to 1 A.M. background of 
soothing orchestral music makes his 
birds healthier and happier— and, of 
importance to him, heavier. He's even 
launched a test comparison with two 
identical sets of chicks to prove his 
conviction that the music-lulled chick- 
ens are superior. "Everything is fine," 
he says. "Muzak has promised they 
won't play 'Chicken Little' and 'Chick- 
en Reel,' but," he smiles, "I still hold 
my breath every time they play a fox

On Monday, December 9th, the 
Board of Trustees met in Philadelphia 
to discuss the new gymnasium. The 
design and blue prints have been com- 
pleted and by the end of this month 
the contractors bids will be in. Calcu- 
lations show that the gymnasium will 
take about four months to build. 

The 1958-59 catalog is now in the 
process of being printed and will be 
available in a few weeks. The catalog 
has been completely revised and will 
include many changes and new course 
listings. Physics will be offered next 
semester, and will be required for the 
Food Industry majors. The new Phys- 
ics Lab will be located in the base- 
ment of Allman Hall. 

Chemistry will be added to the 
curricula next fall as a major. There is 
also a possibility of having Busin^'ss 
Administration and Biology majors in 
the near future. 

The Accreditation Committee will 
visit our campus on the 3rd, 4th, and 
5th of March. It is again mentioned 
that the students' attitude toward the 
college will be extremely important. 


One of the busiest buildings on 
campus this jftst year is the Joseph 
Krauskopf Memorial Library. The Li- 
brary, under the direction of Head 
Librarian Evelyn H. Allen, has under- 
gone a period of unprecedented 
growth and expansion. Mrs. Allen and 
Assistant Librarian Natilie Coltman 
have brought to the Library and the 
College an efficient and professional 
manner which has resulted in making 
the Library truly the centre of the 
campus and the heart of the College. 

Mr. Frederic Blau, Chairman of the 
Library Committee, announced that 
the plans for the new Library addition 
are almost completed and construc- 
tion will begin in the near future.

Well, here we go again. The first 
issue of the Furrow has hit the press 
and we are proud to say that this issue 
marks the beginning of an entirely

all you could desire in a campus news- 
paper. So, keep on the look-out for 
your bi-weekly copies of the "New" 

As everyone knows, the National 
Agricultural College is trying to elimi- 
nate hazing completely. Many of you 
are probably angered at this, but why? 
Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary 
defines hazing as "a harassment b^ 
abusive or ridiculous treatment." Isn t 
this true. We seem to agree with the 
administration that in the past few 
years hazing was becoming more and 
more intense. This was true not only 
in our college but in many others as 
well. There's only one question that 
remains in the minds of all the stud- 
ents. Has this year's approach to elimi- 
nate hazing been successful? 

We'd like to extend a hearty wel- 
come to this year's Freshman Class, 
"The Class of '62." We know that this 
group of over 115 men is an able one 
and is eager to prove themselves as 
college students. 

Class of '62! We hope your follow- 
ing four years here at the National 
Agricultural College is both produc- 
tive and enjoyable.

Professor Tibor Pelle accompanied 
ten student representatives of N.A.C. 
to the Eastern States Intercollegiate 
Livestock Judging Contest, held at 
Springfield, Mass., on September 13. 
Albert Bennett, Bart Glass, John Flog, 
Robert Stevens and Sam Wilson com- 
posed the team, with Joe Exley and 
Harold Dietrich as alternates. Lorenzo 
Fonseca, Dave Kantner, and Frank 
McConnell participated in the judg- 
ing, but not in the statement of reas- 
ons for their judgments. Team scores 
were as follows: Ohio State Univer- 
sity 3514 points, Pennsylvania State 
University 3503 points, University of 
Connecticut 3342 points, University of 
Maryland 3299 points, Cornell Univer- 
sity 3225 points, National Agricultural 
College 3169 points. 

Although out-distanced as a team 
by our larger and more experienced 
competitors, we are not discouraged 
by our showing in the close contest. 
We were 4th in the sheep classes. 
Among individuals, Bart Glass was 
tied for 4th in judging sheep, was 1st 
in horses, and 8th highest in all classes 
combined; Bart, Dr. Pelle reports, was 
mentioned by the official horse judge 
as giving better reasons than the judge 
herself would be able to give. Joe 
Exley, whose score as an alternate's 
did not count, was also congratulated 
by the horse judge for a perfect score, 
150 points out of a possible 150 in 
horse judging. 'The memory of man 
runneth not to the contrary" that this 
feat has not been duplicated in the 
Eastern States Contest. 

Two days later an N.A.C. team of 
three men— David Ainsworth, Joseph

Aggies vs. Montclair State Teachers 

Both the Teachers and the Aggies 
made the costly error of going for two 
points after the TD, instead of the old- 
fashioned one point, on September 27, 
opening game for both squads. 

The rainy day crowd witnessed a 
12-12 tie game at the Aggies field. All 
the scores were made in the first half. 
Senior Aggie quarterback, Bob Rush, 
gained 135 yards on seventeen at- 
tempts and eleven completed passes. 
Emory Markovic, Junior fullback, 
added ninety-five ground yards to the 
126 yards. The total 'Teacher" gain 
was 180 yards vs. total Aggie gain of 
261 yards. Aggie Rush accounted for 
both scores, a two-yard plunge in the 
first period and a second quarter pass 
to Bill Sturm for fifteen yards. Mont- 
clair scored on the kick-off after the 
Aggie touchdown and again in the 
second period on quarterback John 
Richardson's three-yard gain. 

The "Pihos-men" iniposed two seri- 
ous threats in the second half but 
failed to score. 

Aggies vs. Drexel Tech. 

The Aggies in their most important 
game of the year scored a 13 to 8 upset 
over Drexel. 

Bob Frantz, a Freshman quarter- 
back, replaced ailing Bob Rush. After 
a forty-two yard pass from Frantz to 
Markovic and a five-yard plunge by 
Frantz, the Aggies were on Drexel's 
six-yard line. Bill Sturm bolted off- 
tackle for the first tally of the game. 
The place kick by Bill Keyser was 
good, giving the Aggies a 7 to lead. 

Drexel scored on a twenty-five yard 
pass and chose to pass for the two 
extra points, giving them a 8 to 7 lead 
over the Aggies. 

After a scoreless third period Drexel 
threatened the Aggies. Frank Radican 
intercepted a pass, giving the Aggies 
possession once again. Ailing Bob 
Rush came off the bench and led the 
Aggies on a sixty-five yard march for 
the winning TD. The winning TD was 
made by a pass from Rush to Faliue. 
This gave the Aggies a 13 to 8 lead 
after the extra points failed. 

Drexel once again threatened from 
the Aggie five-yard-line in the final 
seconds of the game. Sophomore Pat 
Mihlfried broke through the heavy 
Drexel line to throw their quarterback 
for a ten-yard loss, as the final gun 
sounded, it brought the Aggies big- 
gest victory to a close. 


For the first time. National Agricul- 
tural College exhibited livestock at 
the New Jersey State Fair at Trenton. 
The Fair was held this year on the 
week of September 15. One sheep, 
three swine, and four beef animals 
scored the following prizes: 


Medium weight cross-bred barrow 
class: First and third prizes. Heavy 
weight cross-bred barrow class: sec- 
ond prize. All cross-bred weights bar- 
row: Champion. Penn of three cross- 
bred barrows: First prize. 

Beef Cattle 

Hereford bull: Third prize. Here- 
ford heifer: Second prize. Aberdeen 
Angus heifers: Fourth and fifth prizes. 


Hampshire ram lamb: Fourth prize. 

Prize money on the eight animals 
totalled $141, and the three swine 
were subsequently auctioned for 
something over $160. 

The following Aggies fitted, pre- 
pared, and showed the College en- 
tries: John Bertz, Bart Glass, Dave 
Kantner, John Plog, and Jon Potash- 
nick. Dr. Pelle .said that these men did 
"wonderful jobs"; in his opinion our 
swine were the best fitted of all ani- 
mals in the Trenton show. Our beef 
cattle lacked somewhat of weight and 
finish; the judge was said to have 
stated that only a slight defect in the 
mouth prevented our lamb from plac- 
ing first. 

Junior and Senior majors in Animal 
Husbandry visited the Trenton Fair as 
part of their field laboratory. 


The Doylestown United Nations 
Committee will play host, over the 
weekend of October 25, to about forty 
foreign students from the Philadelphia 
area and the National Agricultural 
College. These students will be taken 
on a tour of Doylestown, and will be 
shown the principal features of a 
typical small American town. They 
will also be house guests of families 
in the town over the weekend. Details 
may be obtained from Mrs. Frederic 
Blau, who with other faculty members 
or their wives, has been active in pro- 
moting suitable local observation of 
United Nations Day, October 24. 


Mr. Feldstein continued for the 
fourth year his experiments with the 
irrigation of peaches in the College 
orchards. Seasonal rainfall was such 
as to confine the irrigation this year 
to one application, on July 18 and 19, 
at the critical moment just preceding 
the final swelling of the fruit, 14 to 30 
days before picking. Twelve trees, of 
three varieties, were irrigated and 
twelve comparable trees received no 
extra water. The yield, in bushels, of 
the two groups of trees proved to be 
as follows: 

Variety— Newday : irrigated 121.44; 
non irrigated 91.7. Variety — Golden 
Jubilee: irrigated 93.84; not irrigated 
74.52. Variety — Elberta: irrigated 
99.36; not irrigated 81.88. 

The increases in yield attributable 
to the supplemental water was there- 
fore from 2 IX to 32^, being greatest 
with Newday. Mr. Feldstein recalls 
that in the very dry year of 1957 the 
increases ran up to 5(B. In 1956 rain- 
fall was so adequate and well distri- 
buted as to make any irrigation un-

Mrs. Webster and the three Webster 
children accompanied Dr. Webster to 
Guelph, Canada, late in August, for 
the regional ( North Atlantic ) meeting 
of the American Society for Agricul-

Village, visited the Canadian National 
Exposition in Toronto, saw Niagara 
Falls, and eventually journeyed to 
Stratford, Conn., to see Shakespeare's 
"Much Ado About Nothing."

Class of '62 Elections 

On Wednesday, October first, in 
Segal Hall, the Freshman Class held 
elections. The following men were 
elected: Wayne "Gus" Crissmen, pres- 
ident; Marvin Brandt, vice-president; 
secretary, Bob Frantz; treasurer. Kirk 
Brown, and representative to the stud- 
ent council, Craig Maxwell. 

Pep Rally 

On Friday night a pep rally was 
held for the football game with 
Drexel. The Freshmen, led by head 
cheerleader Dave "Goldy" Goldstein, 
cheered loud and long. It was a great 
pep rally, but there was a slight delay 
in starting the fire. It was finally 
started however, and was still smold- 
ering after the game on Saturday. 

Freshman Scuttle— But 

A certain Freshman whose name we 
cannot mention but whose initials are 
Jim Matro, is not very well i^iought of 
by the female population of Sellers- 
ville. In his attempt to carry out an 
experiment to prove that chivalry is 
dead, he has failed to keep two dates, 
and made three phone calls to the 
aforesaid female population. 

Another Freshman in a comment 
about the difficulty of Freshman chem- 

istry, states that he hasn't had chem- 
istry in the past two years. But since 
he has no time for anything but sleep- 
ing and writing to his gii*l, this makes 
the third. 

As a public service we now bring 
you this lost and found section. 

LOST — Small black and white dog, 
eats anything, especially fond of

FACULTY (Cont'd) 

Dr. Turner and his family also 
visited Ontario this summer, with a 
stop at the Coning Glass works at 
Corning, New York. , 

Professor R. D. Forbes has attended 
the following meetings this summer 
and fall, of interest to foresters: two, 
in Harrisburg, of the Pennsylvania 
State Forest Commission; the annual 
meeting, in Bellefonte, of the Penn- 
sylvania Forestry Association; and the 
Conference on Small Forest Owner- 
ships, held in Philadelphia, but cover- 
fng the entire Northeast, on Septem- 
ber 16. Mr. Forbes, for nearly thirty 
years a director of the State Forestry 
Association, was appointed to the 
Commission by Governor Leader in 
1956. As representative of the English 
faculty, Mr. Forbes on September 26 
attended the second annual meeting 
of the Pennsylvania Council of Teach- 
ers of English, at State College. Earlier 
he had been enrolled for six weeks 
in the summer school of the Pennsyl- 
vania Academy of the Fine Arts, in 

Professor Arthur Brown attended 
the meeting of the Northeast Section 
of the American Dairy Science Asso- 
ciation at Springfield, Massachusetts, 
on September 15. He reports that 
'Tony" Grifo, NAG '51, a former 
student of his, presented a paper at 
the meeting. Mr. Grifo has just ob- 
tained his Master of Science degree at 
the University of Connecticut, and is 
now working on his Doctorate. 

Mr. Brown, a devotee of NAG 
sports, was absent from the football 
game on October 4. The reason: Fred- 
erick Julian Brown, his first child, ar- 
rived on that day!

On June 12, 1923, Rabbi Dr. Kraus- 
kopf, founder of the National Farm 
School in 1896, passed^ away in At- 
lantic City, New Jersey. It's to Dr. 
Krauskopf that the school owes its 
stimulus for growth and its very exist- 
ence. His last will and testament re- 
flected his love of our institution as, in 
part, it read, "... I trust that the board 
of directors of the National Farm 
School may find the means of repro- 
ducing ... the architecture of my own 

Thus, the school acquired a 5,000 
volume library which reflected upon a 
man whose interests were varied and 

At the time of Dr. Krauskopf s death 
the School was going through a stage 
of development and addition spurred 
on by the Silver Jubilee Fund Drive 
of 1922. 

The Board of Directors approved 
the idea of a school Hbrary and con- 
tracted the architectural firrh of Saur, 
•^and Edwin H. Silvennan to do the 
building. The result was the Joseph 
Krauskopf Memorial Library, of mod- 
ern colonial design, built in 1926. The 
library cost $81,000 to construct, of 
which $15,000 was subscribed by 
friends and relatives of Dr. Krauskopf. 

Today, the main reference room 
houses books of physical and applied 
sciences, and the gallery, those of 
history and literature. The reference 
room, as we on campus popularly 
know it, is an exact replica of Dr. 
Krauskopf's library in Germantown. It 
is lined with sculptures and paintings 
which, coupled with the books them- 
selves, reflect the broad appreciation 

of art the founder possessed. The re- 
production is complete to the most 
minute detail. 

In the model of Dr. Krauskopf s of- 
fice, which is adjacent to his library, 
the remains of both Mr. and Mrs. 
Krauskopf are preserved for posterity. 
There also the shelves are lined with 
books, many of them written by the 
founder himself. 

As a whole, the library appears 
small from the exterior, but the inside 
reveals an entirely diflferent story. 
Fourteen thousand books line the pol- 
ished wood archives, together with 
155 periodicals — and that number is 
growing every day. Eighty-five books 
were added in August and another 
eighty-six in September. Most of the 
new books pertain to science and his- 
tory, but increasing emphasis is being 
placed on literature, both fiction and 

Students seem to realize the impor- 
tant role the library plays in their 
studies— the librarian reports that 609 
students used the facilities during the 
first two weeks of school. 

Well ,that's your library— make good 
use of it. 


By Ray Hendricks 

I would like to extend a hearty wel- 
come to all persons connected with 
the National Agricultural College; 
students, faculty, and administration, 
in behalf of Mrs. Natalie Coltman, 
Mrs. Margaret van Ingen, Mrs. Flor- 
ence Trelawny, and Mrs. Baum. 

These women who form the staff 
of the Joseph Krauskopf Memorial 
Library here on campus, with the 
cooperation of the administration, 
have, since the conclusion of the last 
semester, received and cataloged a 
large and varied selection of new 
books and periodicals, which I'm sure 
the student body will find helpful and 

These new books not only deal with 
agriculture and its related fields, but 
other and varied subjects including 
the fine arts, religion, history, travel, 
fiction, science, literature, etc. 

It might be of interest to all to kn(»w 
that many of the new books we have 
can be found on the best seller list of 
the New York Times Book Review. 
The list consists of two categories, 
each with sixteen books. The first per- 
tains to the best fictional books, and 
the second, to the best in general. Of 
the later we already have "Aku Aku" 
by Heyerdahl, "Inside Russia Today" 
by Gunther, "Baa Baa Black Sheep" 
by Boyington, and "Master of Deceit" 
by J. Edgar Hoover. * 

Students interested in books of his- 
torical significance will be glad to find 
such books as "The Battle of Gettys- 
burg," "The Texan - Sante Fe Pio- 
neers," "Why the Civil War?", "Na- 
poleon's Russian Campaign" and many 
others at their disposal. One may also 
find many other books written by 
other noted authors such as Pearl S. 
Buck, Ernest Hemingway, Sinclair 
Lewis, O. Henry, Charles Dickens, 
Arthur Conan Doyle, and Edna 

In addition the student can find 
many periodicals covering more sub- 
jects than he ever imagined could be 
found in a library the size of ours. 
Besides the more popular magazines 

such as "Life," "Readers Digest," 
(Cuntinued on Page 4) 


We, the editors, want to thank all of 
you for the magnificent welcome given 
to the first issue of this newspaper. We 
will continue doing our best to main- 
tain and perhaps raise this standard 
in following issues. 

What made the first issue of The 
Furrow a success? Was it the work of 
the editors or the articles and news 
collected by the individual staff mem- 
bers and the faculty members? No. It 
was the effort and cooperation of 
everyone: the office and the student 
body in providing the necessary in- 
formation, the faculty in providing the 
notes and news, and helping the staff, 
and the staff members in supplying 
the information correctly and on time. 

But this interest to help the news- 
paper is decreasing day after day. Like 
a spark, it was full and bright in the 
first issue and now it's begun to dim. 
We ask of you — faculty, office and 
student body to cooperate and help 
not only The Furrow but all the school 
publications as much as you can so 
they can continue appearing period- 
ically and successfully. What we mean 
by cooperation is not only writing the 
articles that you are assigned to, or 
answering the questions you are asked 
but supplying articles and information 
voluntarily of happenings and things 
you think can go in the publications. 

Let's keep that spark of interest and 
cooperation full and bright so we can 
give you in return the best possible 
newspaper we can.

Freshmen Enrollment 

Dean Meyer reports that one hun- 
dred and seventeen new students en- 
rolled in the College this fall, includ- 
ing nine men entering from other Col- 
leges. In addition to the usual large 
number from Pennsylvania and New 
Jersey, the following areas are repre- 
sented: New York, 8 men; Connecti- 
cut, 2 men; and one each from each 
of the follo\ying: Ohio, Massachusetts, 
and two foreign students from Colom- 
bia and El Salvador. 

There are twelve veterans in the 
group. There appears to be consider- 
able exti^-curricular talent possessed 
by members of the class, to judge by 
their membership in various campus 

Freshman testing results indicate 
them to be an able group academically. 

Improvements on Campus 

A larger and more modern oil 
burner just installed in the base- 
ment of Segal Hall, has been supple- 
mented by a remodeled piping system. 
The building now has two heating 
zones, an arrangement which it is 
hoped will correct the deficiencies in 
heating class rooms on the ground 
floor and the second-floor laboratories. 
Ulman Hall has been equipped with 
two electronic thermostats, considered 
to be the most modern development 
in heat control. The hot-air system in 
Elson Hall has been replaced by a 
hot-water system, comparable to that 
in the New Dormitory, and also with 
electronic control. Interior remodeling 
of Elson Hall has, among other im- 
provements, replaced the old metal 
closets with built-in wooden ones 
which combine bureau and closet 
space. Nearly half the rooms now have 
improved built-in bunks. 


An intercollegiate conference on 
"Careers in the International Field," 
will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on 
Monday, November 11, in Greek Hall 
of the John Wanamaker Store, Phila- 
delphia. Competent speakers from a 
variety of organizations, looking for 
Americans to work or study in foreign 
countries, will describe the oppor- 
tunities for college-trained men. 

The Contemporary Club will ar- 
range transportation to and from the 
NAC Campus for those wishing to 
attend this conference. Write to the 
President, Contemporary Club, N\C, 
for a reservation.

The lucky lady was Miss Rita Szeferski 
of Conshohocken, Pa. The couple is 
now living in Conshohocken. Their 
aim is to raise bubshka's. 

The former Janice Comstock, of 
Duryea, Pa., wife of Tom Koes, a

Aggies vs. Lincoln U. 

A pair of last quarter touchdowns 
made the winning difference as the 
Aggies downed Lincoln 21-13, for 
their second straight win, on windy 
Lincoln field. 

After a scoreless first half, Lincoln 
scored on a screen pass from the Aggie 
25 early in the third period. The strong 
Lincoln defense held back the Aggies 
until an interception by Aggie quar- 
terback Frantz midway through the 
period placed the Aggies in scoring 
position on the Lions 26. The Aggie 
offense took 5 plays to move the ball 
to the 7-yard line. Frantz handed off 
to fullback Markovic who scored on a 
dash around left end. The conversion 
by Soph Bill Keyser evened the score 
at 7-7. The tie did not last long as the 
Lions charged into the 4th quarter 
with a score on a 12-yard pass. The 
conversion failed, bringing Lincoln 
into to lead 13-7. 

A lull came over the cheering Lin- 
coln section as the Aggies marched 
down the field, climaxing their drive 
with a 1-yard plunge by Schultz for 
the second Aggie score. Minutes later 
Sophomore Pat Mihlfried received a 
pass from quarterback Rush for the 
third tally. Bill Keyser accounted for 
the third consecutive conversion as the 
Aggies defeated the Lincoln Lions 

Aggies vs. D. C. Teachers College 

The undefeated Aggies brought 
their record to three wins and one tie 
as they defeated D. C. Teachers 19-14 
on Alumni field. 

Junior Emory Markovic did not 
seem to be hindered by his injured 
leg as he accounted for all the Aggie 

The Teachers received the opening 
kickoff and scored on the second down 
with a 45-yard run off right end. The 
extra point attempt was good, as the 
Teachers took the lead 7-0, and held 
it until the half. The Aggie eleven 
seemed rejuvenated as they received 
the kick-off opening the second half. 
The Aggies marched down the field 
for a total of 58 yards. Sophomore 
tackle Huck Johnston's block opened 
the way for Marcovic to tally from the 
2-yard line' The conversion failed, but 
the Aggies rallied again in the same 
quarter with a net gain of 73 yards. 
Jack Schultz accounted for 22 yards 
on an end run and Marcovic romped

Glee Club 

The Glee Club under the direction 
of Mr. Ross has made plans for pre- 
senting a number of concerts, the first 
of which will be a Christmas Concert 
given either here in school or in a 
nearby church. The Glee Club meets 
every Wednesday evening from 7-9 in 
Lasker Hall— members are urged to be 
present at all rehearsals. 

The officers are: President, Robert 
Stevens; Vice President, Jack Criswell, 
and the Secretary-Treasurer, Roger 


The members of the band under the 
instruction of Mr. Merald A. Sockwell, 
Sr., have, to date, playted and marched 
at all the home and away football 
games and will continue doing so until 
the end of the season. Their future 
plans include giving a number of con- 
certs not only for A-Day and gradua- 
tion but also for the Mental Hospital 
in Vineland, New Jersey, and the V. A. 
Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware. 

The election results: President, Jon 
Potashnik; Vice President, Jack Cris- 
well; Secretary -Treasurer, Roger Blatt. 


Donation from Col. L. D. Kendall 

The Poultry Department received a 
donation of a sixty foot by twenty-four 
foot pheasant pen and Ringneck Mon- 
golian Pheasants from Poultry instruc- 
tor Col. Lewis D. Kendall this summer. 

During the summer Field Labora- 
tory, the class of '61 assisted in con- 
struction of the pen, and along with 
poultry practicums this fall, the pen 
was finally completed. 

The new addition will provide an 
opportunity for the students to ob- 
serve the propagation of game birds, 
which includes breeding and selec- 
tion, incubation and management 

practices. With the ever increasing 

number of shooting preserves, "pay 

as you hunt," game bird propagation 

is becoming more and more popular. 

Future plans inchide the division of 
the present pen into ten breeding pens 
in the latter part of March. Each pen 
is satisfactory for a mating of a male 
and five or six females. Pheasants not 
selected for future breeders will be 
sold or liberated during the spring 


On the seventh of October, the 
poultry majors went to Harrisburg 
where the North East Poultry Pro- 
ducers Council was holding its annual 
convention and exposition. 

NEPPCO is an organization that 
helps its members keep up with Agri- 
cultural advances in all phases of the 
poultry industry. 

The displays covered a wide range, 
from baby chicks and formula feeds, 
to many kinds of equipment. The 
Poultry majors had a good opportunity 
to examine an extensive line of the 
most modern poultry supplies. 

Ornamental Horticultural 

At the first meeting of the Orna- 
mental Horticultural Society, Joe Siat- 
kowski introduced the club officers 
and club sponsor, Mr. Bateman, to the 
Freshman members. 

Mr. Bateman, club advisor, sug- 
gested the organization of a project to 
make the Club and College known to 
the community. He also explained that 
the college plans to improve the cam- 
pus and spoke of the various oppor- 
tunities in the allied fields of Orna- 
mental Horticulture. 

This year's club program was dis- 
cussed and the members decided to 
have many guest speakers. They are 
also planning a field trip either to the 
New York Botanical Gardens or Long- 
wood Gardens. 

Meetings are scheduled for the first 
and third Wednesday evenings of 
each month. Results of the election of 
officers are as follows: President, Joe 
Siatkowski; Vice President,* Don 
Gregg; Secretary, Leslie Garrett, and 
Treasurer, Ron Bauman. 

Photography Club 

The Photography Club held its first 
meeting this semester on October 6. 
The members have decided to make 
the photography club one of the most 
active clubs on campus. After the elec- 
tion of officers, the members decided 
on the setting up of a darkroom on 
campus. Equipment for the laboratory 
will be acquired through the donation 
of the members, Mr. Frazer, club 
advisor, and other means. The 
meetings, which will he held monthly

or more frequently if necessary, are 
going to be dedicated largely to the 
showing of the members photographs, 
which, for improvement, will receive 

Guest speakers will be invited to 
speak on art in relationship to photog- 
raphy, camera use, darkroom tech- 
niques, etc. 

The members of the club are sev- 
eral, but many more are needed. 
Therefore everyone is cordially invited 
to become members of the Photog- 
raphy Club. 

Animal Husbandry Club 

This year's first Animal Husbandrv 
Club was held October 2, 1958. 

Dr. Pelle, club advisor, addressed 
the officers of the club and upper 
classmen to the freshmen members. 
Then Sam Wilson, President, took 
over and asked the club members to 
cooperate in the diflferent projects of 
the A. H. Department, and explained 
the participation and the importance 
of A Day to the Freshmen. The possi- 
bility of a field trip either to Baltimore 
Swift Plant or Beltsville Research 
Center was discussed and voted on. 

Some of the upper classmen were 
put in charge of the A.H. Department. 
Glass and Cabrales, Beef; Kantner and 
Diamond, Sheep; and Criswell, Swine. 
Besides this the members of the club 
will participate in nursing the show 
calves at Farm #3.

clude the showing of U.S.D.A. movies, 
appearance of various speakers from 
agronomic enterprises and discussion 
on particular phrases of Agronomy of 
interest to the members. Club officer 
Roger Blatt believes the club may go 
to Cornell's Farm and Home Week 
again next spring.

On Monday, October 27, at 6 p.m. 
there will be an Agronomy meeting. 

Dairy Society 

The Dairy Society began its first 
session, October 1, with the election 
of officers for the '58 and '59 school 
year. Bob Grimm was elected Presi- 
dent, Dave Ainsworth was elected 
Vice President, and Joe Bittman was 
elected Secretary-Treasurer. 

Mr. Brown, faculty advisor for the 
club, addressed the new members of 
the club and gave a brief history of 
the school's dairy and suggested some 
projects which may be undertaken by 
the Club as a whole. 

The main topic of conversation was 
the possibility of field trips to Penn 
State, Rutgers Experimental Station 
and the Artificial Breeders Associa- 
tion. Every other week the "News Let- 
ter" will be distributed to each club 

Food Industry Club 

The election of officers marked the 
beginning of the Food Industry Club 
activities for the '58-'59 school year. 
Election results are as follows: Joe 
Faline was elected president, Al Sil- 
verman was elected vice president, 
Emory Markovic was elected treas- 
urer, and James Jackson was elected 

Contemporary Club 

At a meeting in Segal Hall on Oc- 
tober 22, the Contemporary Club 
elected Bud Charlick as President for 
the college year, and Charles "Tony" 
Remsen, III, as Secretary. The club de- 
cided to hold a student forum on Na- 
tional Politics, to which all students 
are invited who wish to express their 
political views, or to listen to those of 
others. This meeting will be held in 
Segal Hall Auditorium from 8:00 to 
9:00 P.M. on Thursday, October 30, 
and a straw ballot will conclude it. 

Members of the club and other in- 
terested students will visit the current 
exhibition of contemporary paintings 
and Sculpture at Phillips' Barn, near 
New Hope on Saturday afternoon, 
November 8. Transportation will be 
free by private cars, which will leave 
the faculty parking lot behind Segal 
Hall at 1:00 P.M., and return before 
4:00 P.M. Admission to the exhibition 
is 25<^, but the club hopes to have this 
formality waived for club members. 
Notify Bud Charlick if you would like 
to visit this exhibition. 


"Post," "Coronet," and 'Time," we 
have the very important periodicals, 
namely: "Business Week," "Atlantic 
Monthly," "Scientific American," and 
varied agricultural magazines. 

The above mentioned are but a few 
of the new, widely interesting and 
informative selection of books, period- 
icals, and reading matter available to 
you. I encourage you all to pay a visit 
to your library, for whatever your 
literary taste may be, I'm sure you'll 
be satisfied. 


21 yards for the second Aggie score. 
The extra point attempt failed. 

The last period saw the Aggies in a 
bad situation as the Teachers drove 78 
yards for a score. The conversion was 
good and the Aggies were trailing 
14-12. The clock showed 4 remaining 
minutes when Frank Radican returned 
the Teachers' punt 40 yards to D. C 's 
25. The clock was the Aggies' biggest 
enemy as three quick plays brought 
the ball to the 1-yard line and Mar- 
covic bolted over for the score. Key- 
ser's conversion was successful as the 
Aggies edged the Teachers 19-14. 


Last Saturday evening was the 
scene of the fourth Annual Varsity 
Drag, which was the "Kick-Off" dance 
of this new school year. 

Lasker Hall was decorated with 
cornstalks, pumpkins, and other things 
all symbolic of the fall season. And in 
the midst of these surroundings, a 
capacity crowd danced to the music 
of Tony Fecca's orchestra. 

The first highlight of the evening 
was a surprise to everyone. Tony 
Cabrales, a senior, sang "Blue Moon." 
Tony seems to have a good voice. 
He"ll probably be another "Frankie." 
The second highlight was the selec- 
tion of the Queen of the Varsity Drag. 
Miss Sue King, Ken Bergman's date, 
was chosen queen of the evening. 

It was evident to all that the "Drag" 
was the first social success of the 
season. And because of this, the Var- 
sity Club would like to thank all the 
students who made this success pos-

NOVEMBER 7, 1958 

No. 3 


By Jehhy Mulnick '61 

It is with no doubt that all of us at 
NAC have seen some big changes 
made on campus within the last year 
and there are more changes on the 

New classrooms have been built at 
the Horticultural Building and Lasker 
Hall; the gym is being built; new sub- 
jects have been added to the curricu- 
lum (i.e., Physics and History); and 
two new dormitories are to be erected. 

Since every modernization program 
must have some sort of stimulus this 
is no exception. In this case the stimu- 
lus is the issue of accreditation. 

Just what is accreditation? How 
does it aflPect the college, and how 
does it affect you, the student? 

Accreditation is recognition ac- 
corded to an educational institution 
by some agency; in our area this 
agency is the Middle States Associa- 
tion of Colleges and Secondary Schools. 
, Actually NAC was accredited by the 
State Council of Education of the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 
1948. However, it was this initial ac- 
creditation which gave NAC the 
status of a Senior College with the 
|X)wer to grant the Bachelor or Science 
Degree in the following majors: 
Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, Dairy 
Husbandry, Horticulture, Ornamental 
Horticulture, and Poultry Husbandry. 
The Council granted the power to the 
college to defer the degree of Bachelor 
of Science in Food Industry in June, 

When NAC gains membership in 
the Middle State Association of Col- 
leges and Secondary Schools it will 
then be recognized as having the same 
status as other member colleges. This 
will make for easier transfer to and 
from other colleges. It will also ease 
entrance for NAC graduates to mem- 
ber universities for post-graduate 

After a year of preparation, the Col- 
lege was visited in March 1958, by an 
evaluating team of educators repre- 
senting the Association. Although ac- 
creditation was not granted immedi- 
ately, a generally favorable report was 
rendered • by the visiting committee 
and certain recommendations refer 
principally to curriculum and facilities 
(not mentioned above). When the 
college has followed up the remain- 
der of the recommendations, the As- 
sociation will be notified and an addi- 
tional evaluation will be made. It is 
difficult to set the date at this time, 
but all reasonable effort is being made 
to hasten its attainment. 


The Class of '59 is running away 
with the intramural football cham- 
pionship for the third year in a row. 
Unbeaten and scored on only by the 
juniors, it looks like a definite cham- 
pionship. The sophomore team shows 
good potential in their "razzle-dazzle" 
plays. The freshman class has two 
teams entered and so far, they have 
tied each other twice and can boast of 
only one win. It was the freshman 
team which defeated the sophomores 
7-0 in a hard fought game. The sopho- 
more team tied the juniors once and 
in their second tilt with the seniors 
they allowed only two touchdowns. 

The scores are as follows: 



Freshman 1

The "Annual College Weekend" of 
the National Agricultural College will 
be held on November 21. All students 
are cordially invited to bring their 
dates for a weekend of fun and fes- 

The girls will be housed in the 
vacant senior dorm and will be chap 
eroned by the professors' wives. They 
will have their meals in the dining liall 
at a rate of $1.00 per meal which, ob- 
viously, will be charged to the students 
who invited them. 

The "weekend" will begin imme- 
diately after classes on Friday. In the 
evening there will be a record dance 
in the dining hall during which hay- 
rides will be touring the campus. Cur- 
few for the girls will be at 12:00 p.m. 

That Saturday afternoon the Aggie 
eleven will buck Trenton State Teach- 
ers College in the final game of the 
season. Usually, after the game, the 
Aggies take their dates out to a rest- 
aurant for dinner. Saturday evening 
the senior class will sponsor a semi- 
formal dance which will be held off 
campus. Curfew for Saturday evening 
will be 1:00 a.m. 

Sunday morning every student is 
encouraged to take his date to the 
church of their choice and this will 
end the college weekend. Girls must 
be off campus by Sunday afternoon. 

In order to make this weekend a 
success all students are encouraged to 


Due to unavoidabl*" circumstances 
the next and following issues of the 
Furrow will be circulated on Mondays 
instead of Fridays. 


For the past two years the Aggie 
football team has been making the 
headlines of the newspapers in the 
Philadelphia area because of the good 
games they have played. Their hard 
work and long preparation for the 
games have always been helped, not 
only by the magnificent coaching of 
Mr. Pete Pihos and Mr. Ted Gehlman, 
iMit also by the Aggies' cheers from 
the grandstands. 

The 1957 football season ended with 
six victories and one loss and it seemed 
that almost everyone remembered tht^ 
game we lost, by a close score, to 
Trenton but no one thought of the 
other six excellent games we played 
and won. 

Last week, imfortunately, we lost 
the first game of the five we have 
played this season and the same thing 
has seemed to happen again— everyone 
is disappointed. Perhaps the trip to 
Washington, D. C, was too long and 
the players were tired; perhaps there 
are other reasons; perhaps there is no 
reason. Let's not forget the other 
games we have played this year: our 
\ictorv over Drexel, a school four 
times our size, with a score of 13-8, 
or the victory over Kutztown State 
Teachers with a score of 12-0. Let's 
look back at last week's loss as an 
encouragement to buoy up our morale 
and help us continue supporting our 
team the rest of the season.

Varsity Club 

The election of officers marked the 
beginning of the Varsity Club activi- 
ties for the '58-'59 school year. Elec- 
tion results were as follows: President, 
Robert Berke; vice-president, Emory 
Markovic; treasurer, Ed Stickle; and

Food Industry Club 

On Wednesday, October 29, the 
Food Industry (Jlub traveled to New 
York City to visit The National Frozen 
Foods Distributors Association at the 
Statler-Hilton Hotel. 

Thirty-two food industry members 
accompanied by Dr. Turner, one of 
the club advisers, made the trip. Here 
the club members were able to see an 
acre and a half of displays, showing 

the most recent methods in processing, 
packaging, and displaying frozen 

At the meeting in Segal Hall on Oc- 
tober 21, the problem of dues was 
brought up and it was voted that 
$L00 per member must be paid by 
Tuesday, October 28, in order to be 
eligible to go on the field trip to New 

A four-month program committee 
was set up, Joe Faline, Jerry Mulnick, 
Saul Nadler and Lenny Hilson offered 
to serve on this committee. The next 
meeting will be held November 10, 

Poultry Club 

At the first meeting of the Poultry 
Science Club on Wednesday, Octo- 
ber 22, election of officers was held. 
President, Tony Mazzocchi; vice-pres- 
ident, Phil Dodge; secretary, Ron. 
Schneider; treasurer, Dave Steely, 

It was decided that meetings be 
held on the second and fourth Wed- 
nesdays of each month. This is be- 
cause Bucks County Poultry Pro- 
ducers Co-operative meets on the 
fourth Wednesday of each month in 
Segal Hall and poultry majors are 
urged to attend. 

At these meetings poultrymen are 
brought up-to-date as to the latest 
happenings in the poultry field. 

On October 27, 1958 the Poultry 
Club traveled to Lancaster, Pa., where 
they were the guests of Red Rose Feed 
Company's research farms and their 
feed plant. At the plant, the students 
saw the importance of accurate and 
up-to-date machinery in modern feed 
rations. The research farm carried on 
experiments to pro\ e the efficiency of 
their feed ration. 

At this time the poultry majors are 
trying for top honors in Poultry Judg- 
ing of upcoming contests. The 
first contest will be at Rutgers on 
NoNcmber 21 to the 22nd and the 
other will be in Chicago from Novem- 
ber 30 to December 6. Details of the 
contest and the students who will be 
judging will be in the next issue of the

Aggies vs. Kutztown St. Teachers 

The Aggies extended their record to 
4-0-1 lis they shut out Kutztown on 
the "Teachers" windswept and rain 
drenched field. 

The weather conditions seriously 
hampered the effectiveness of both 
squads. After a scoreless first half, the 
Aggies tallied twice in the 3rd period. 
The Aggies recovered a fumble on the 
Kutztown 3-yard line and Rush ac- 
counted for the first tally on the sec- 
ond play with a quarterback sneak 
from the one-yard line. The second 
tally was a drive of 83 yards, climaxed 
by Emory Markovic's six-pointer from 
the four-yard line. 

The "Teachers" offense was sparked 
b\' the running halfback Al Mac 
Olerson and the signal calling of 
quarterback Jameson. 

A sure "Teacher" score was a\'erted 
when sophomore Pat Mihlfried batted 
down the pass play, a high pass from 
the outstretched arms of the Kutztown 

The action was limited due to the 
adverse conditions of the field. 

Aggies vs. Gallaudet 

The undefeated record of the Aggies 
terminated as Gallaudet nipped the 
Aggie eleven 14-13. 

The first half followed the .same pat- 
tern as the Kutztown game, with 
neither team scoring. In the second 
half the Aggies scored once in the 
third period and once in the fourth 

In the third period the Aggies were 
in possession on their own 41-yard 
line. Exley kicked on the fourth down 
and the ball was fumbled by Gal- 
laudet. Senior end Joe Faline recov- 
ere'd the fumble on the Gallaudet 19- 
yard line. After two attempts at the 
line by Markovic and Exley netting 
18 yards, Markovic scored from the 
one-yard line. Joe Faline touched on 
the extra point. 

In tile fourth period Gallaudet 
punted to the Aggie 20-yard line. 
Exely returned the ball to the 22-yard 
line. The Aggies were penalized 15 
yards to their own 7-yard line. The 
Aggies started their down at the seven- 

yard line. Two offside penalties against 
Gallaudet advanced the ball to the 
team's seven-yard line. At this point 
Rush and his receiver finally estab- 
lished contact. A 23-yard pass to Mar- 
kovic, an eight-yarder to Faline, and 
the largest single play of the game, a 
39-yard pass to sophomore Pat Mihl- 
fried advanced the ball to the Gal- 
laudet 13-yard line. Ed Stickel gained 
eight yards to the five-yard line. Rush 
passed to Mihlfried in the end zone 
for the final Aggie score. The extra 
point, which later proved costly, was 

With four minutes to go in the 
fourth period, a punt was blocked by 
Gallaudet tackle Ginty, who advanced 
the ball to the Aggie one-yard line. 
Gallaudet made their second score on 
a quarterback sneak on the one-yard 
line. The winning point in the game 
was touched on by MacFaffen follow- 
ing the pattern of last season's sixth 
game at Trenton. 

Midway in the fourth period, Rush's 
pass was intercepted on the Aggie 10- 
yard line and the ball was carried to 
the end zone. 

The extra point was scored on a 
plunge by MacFaffen. 


\'{)lume 50 of the Agranamy Journal 
for 1958, pages 438-440, carries an ar- 
ticle entitled "Certain Characteristics 
of Land in Relation to Tendency of 
Farmers to Establish Conservation 
Practices." Dr. Julian Prundeanu is 
the senior author, associated jointly 
with Dr. Paul J. Zwerman of Cornell 
University. Studies carried out by the 
authors in the Ontario County ( N. Y. ) 
Soil Conservation District indicate 
that "there is little or no relationship 
between the slope, drainage, erosion, 
or use capability of the land and the 
kind and amount of soil conservation 
practices established by the fanner." 
— "The farmer's attitude toward - 
specific soil conservation practices 
seems to be the most important single 
factor in the acceptance of certain 
practices and the rejection of others." 

Dr. Prundeanu participated in the 
recent annual meeting of the Amer- 
ican Society of Agronomy, held at 
Purdue University, Lafayette, Indiana. 
Over a thousand delegates, from the 
United States, Canada, Europe, and 
New Zealand, attended this meeting. 

During the meeting several hun- 
dreds of scientific papers were pre- 


Here is a story that has been making 
the rounds that we thought you might 
enjoy. It's all based on a letter sup- 
posed to have been written by a 
Louisiana farmer to the Secretary of 
Agriculture. The letter follows: 

"Dear Mr. Secretary: 

"My friend Bordeaux over in Terre- 
bonne Parish received a $1,000 check 
from the government this year for not 
raising hogs. So I am going into the 
not-raising-hog-business this year, 

"What I want to know is, in your 
opinion, what is the best kind of hogs 
not to raise? I would prefer not to 
raise razorbacks, but if that is not a 
good breed not to raise I will just as 
gladly not raise any Berkshires or 

"TTie hardest work in the business is 
going to be keeping an inventory of 
how many hogs I haven't raised, 

"My friend Bordeaux is very joyful 
about the future of this business. He 
has been raising hogs for 20 years, and 
the best he ever made was $400 until 
this year when he got $1,000 for not 
raising hogs. 

"If I can get $1,000 for not raismg 
50 hogs, then I will get $2,000 for not 
raising 100 hogs? I plan to operate on 
a small scale at first, holding down to 
about 4,000 hogs, which means I will 
have $80,000. 

"Now, another thing: These hogs I 
will not raise will not eat 100,000 
bushels of corn. I understand that you 
also pay farmers for not raising corn. 
So will you pay me anything for not 
raising 100,000 bushels of corn not to 
feed tne hogs I am not raising? 

"I want to get started as soon as 
possible as this seems to be a good 
time of year for not raising any hogs. 

"Yours very truly, 

"Octabe Broussard."

one of the outstanding events on our 
campus. Carols and other traditional 
Christmas songs will be sung. 


The band has a new look. The green 
and gold uniforms were finally taken 
out of mothballs. The band has a new 
drum major ill Rom Zimmer, a fresh- 
man, and along with him, Eleanor 
Walton, one of the top majorettes in 
the country. Miss Walton was a finalist 
in the National Baton-Twirling contest 
in Chicago last year. 

The band now consists of 25 mem- 
bers and is large enough to form let- 
ters at the football games. 

The band is doing a tremendous job 
at all of the games. Let's hear a big

Dairy Society 

The third meeting of the Daiiy 
Society was held on October 28 in 
Segal Hall. The main business dis- 
cussed pertained to the Dairy Society's 
projects and a field trip. The club 
voted to take a field trip to individual 
farms such as Lee's Hill Farm and 
other well known farms. 

The first guest speaker of the Dairy 
Society was Orville Yoder, the assist- 
ant County Agent. Mr. Yoder gave a 
very interesting and informative talk 
on the advantages and disadvantages 
of Extension Work for young men. 

Congratulations to the Dairy So- 
ciety on their Moo's Letter. The Letter 
gives us a bird's eye view of what 
progress the Society is making. 

Horticultural Society 

The Horticultural Society kicked ofi 
the college year with the election of 
officers: president, Marty O'Donnell; 
vice-president, joe Kapushnac; secre- 
tary. Bill Roberts; treasurer, Bill 
George. , 

The Society, headed by Mr. Feld- 
stein and Mr. Purmell, is planning 
to cultivate tropical fruit trees to add 
beauty to the Hort. Building and for 
educational purposes. 

Membership in the Society is open 
to all students interested in Horticul- 
ture. Meetings are held the first and 
third Thursday of every month. 

Ornamental Horticultural Society 

A float is planned for the Doyles-

discussed but nothing definite was 

Animal Husbandry Club 

The third meeting of the Animal 
Husbandry Club took place Tuesday, 
November 4 at 8:00 p.m. Due to the 
well chosen program over 75 students 
were present at the meeting. 

The president, Sam Wilson, dis- 
cu.ssed the first field trip to the Na- 
tional Farm Show in Harrisburg on 
Wednesday, November 12. He then 
introduced the speaker for the night, 
Mr. Jim Shearer, manager of Erden- 
heim Farms, an enterprise well known 
by most of the Animal Husbandry 
upper classmen. 

Mr. Shearer talked about his man- 
agement work at Erdenheim. His talk 
was supplemented by the following 
three films: "Sheep," "Western Sheep" 
and "Shearing Hygiene." Besides these 
films three other movies were shown, 
one of which was the "American 
Brahma Cattle in America."

Christmas Float 

For the first time in the history of 
the National Agricultural College, one 
of its clubs is entering a float in the 
Doylestown Christmas Parade. 

The Ornamental Horticultural So- 
ciety, newly formed after dissolving 
the Horticultural Club— a Club which 
included both Ornamental Horticul- 
ture and Horticulture majors— has, in 
an eflFort to gain esteem both in col- 
lege and in the surrounding com- 
munities, inaugurated a program of 

The Society's idea of entering a float 
in the Annual Christmas Parade in 
Doylestown, was heartily approved of 
both by Mr. Bateman, Club's adviser, 
and by the administration of the 

The float will be erected on one of 
the College's trucks and its approxi- 
mate measurements will be 23 feet in 
length and nine feet in width. The 
Club's float committee is composed of 
the following four men: Joe Teller '62, 
Bob DeRosa '61, Tom Herr '60, and 
Ray Steidinger '59. These students, 
along with the entire club, will co- 
operate in the designing and erection 
of the float. 

The Club's entry is entitled "Santa's 
Workshop." The design will incorpo- 
rate Santa's snow-covered house and 
his reindeer and sleigh awaiting the 
Christmas Eve Journey. Various plant 
materials such as hemlock and clump 
birch will supplement this design. The 
Club designed this float not only for 
the adults but primarily for the chil- 
dren seeing the parade. 

Fruit Judging Contest 

The Eastern Intercollegiate Fruit 
Judging Contest will be held here at 
the National Agricultural College on 
December 6. The following colleges 
and universities will participate in the 
contest: Rutgers University, West Vir- 
ginia and the National Agricultural 

Grant From Princeton 

By R. M. Bateman 

Campus Improvement Committee 

On November 12 the National Agri- 
cultural College was presented with a 
grant of about two hundred varieties 
of ornamental plant materials, three 
specimens of each variety, by Mr. 
William Flemer, HI, of the Princeton 
Nurseries in Kingston, New Jersey. 

Beginning with the transplanting 
season we will receive these varieties 
as they are dug at the nursery and by 
Fall 1959 the transfer should be com- 

The grant was made so the National 
Agricultural College would be able to 
develop its own Arboretum and facili- 
tate further coverage of plant ma- 
terial identification, growth and en- 
vironmental habits. The designing of 
an organized planting plan is under 
way to best display this extensive 
selection of plant materials. 

Note is made that the above grant 
initially started with the assistance of 
Frank Rosade '58 who is now Head 
Seedsman at Princeton Nurseries. 

Livestock Judging Contest 

On November 15, 1958 the Eastern 
National Livestock Show in Timon- 
ium, Maryland, was the scene of the 
Intercollegiate Livestock Judging 

The ^following eleven colleges and 
universities participated in the con- 
test: University of Kentucky, National 
Agricultural College, Cornell Univer- 
sity, University of Maryland, North 
Carolina State College, University of 
Connecticut, Penn State University, 
Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Ohio 
State University, West Virginia Uni- 
versity, and University of Tennessee.

Since this is the last editorial before 
our resignation as Editors of the 
Furrotv, we'd like to discuss a very 
controversial subject, "The manner of 
dress on campus." 

If you're familiar with the new 
edition of the Student Handbook, 
you'll probably know that point nine 
(9) of Campus Procedure states as 
follows: Students will be dressed pre- 
sentably when attending college func- 
tions, classes and meals. Work clothes 
are not considered presentable for 
these functions! 

How many of you adhere to this 
rule? Or how many of you have ever 
read the Student Handbook'* Evi- 
dently only a few of you have, judging 
by your manner of dress. Obviously 
there are exceptions to this rule. For 
instance during the week all students 
have Field Laboratory at one time or 
another. Since they are expected to 
work, they may wear dungarees, old 
clothing or anything they please. This 
by all means doesn't apply to the stu- 
dents attending other classes! 

In class, students should dress 
neatly, wear clean pants, clean shirts 
and decent shoes — not "levis" and 
work boots. Remember, first impres- 
sions are lasting ones. Visitors will 
always remember the improper attire 
of students after leaving the campus. 
So we challenge you, the students of 
this college, to better your mode of 
dress. Keep in mind that proper attire 
will not only benefit you but the 
college also.

LETTERS TO THE EDITORS Members of Dean's Office 

Dear Editors: 

I want to acknowledge with thanks 
the several issues of the N.A.C. "Fur- 
row" which you have sent me recently. 

I have read every word of these 
publications, and think them terrific. 
Vou certainly cover the doings at the 
College. Your recent articles on the 
Krauskopf Library, Accreditation at 
N.A.C, etc., have been well written 
and accurate in content. 

Please extend my best wishes to 
your entire staflF, not only as Chairman 
of the Board, but personally as one 
who is interested in the College. 

My kindest personal regards. 
Sincerely yours, 

Manfred R. Krauskopf 

Dear Sir, 

Enclosed is a check for a year's sub- 
scription to the "Furrow." 

May I be among the first to con- 
gratulate you on a well written and 
very informative college paper. 


KiRKWooD G. Ahnolx), '56 

Furrow StaflF: 

This is just a note to let you know 
what I think of the "Furrow." 

Personally, the paper is getting bet- 
ter all the time and it keeps me well 
informed about what is going on. You 
men are doing a great job. 

The club notes and information on 
new classes, buildings, and any new 
improvements always make good 

Too bad there is not much Alumni 
News in there, but maybe we'll get 
our own news letter soon. 

Keep up the fine job. Thanks to all 
the staff and Mr. Forbes and other 
faculty who help. 

Sincerely yours, 

Leonard Goldentyer 
Class of "1958" 


Seeing the need for betterment of 
both the Furrow and the Gleaner, we 
the editors abdicate our positions on 
this publication so as to devote more 
time to the Gleaner on which we are 
Editors-in-chief. We thank one and 
all for the encouragement and con- 
gratulations we received on initiating 
the new policy of fortnightly publica- 
tions of the Furrow, and we're sure 
that upon our resignation. Bill Mayer 
and Kim Johnson, both of the Class of 
'61, will be the best possible men to 
hold the title of Editors-in-chief of 
the Furrow. 

Attend Educational 

June 19-20, 1958, Dean Meyer, Mr. 
Larson, and Mr. Fulcoly attended a 
College Admission Officers and School 
Counselors Conference at Pennsyl- 
vania State University. Thursday eve- 
ning consisted of a banquet at the 
Nittany Inn and Friday morning the 
conference was divided into small 
groups to discuss admission proced- 
ures. A luncheon was held and after 
that all topics discussed in the morn- 
ing were summarized by the chairman 
of the conference. 

October 14, 1958, Dean Meyer, Mr. 
Larson, and Mr. Fulcoly attended a 
School and College Conference at 
Cedar Crest College, AUentown, Penn- 
sylvania. The meeting started at 3 p.m. 
and the panel discussion theme was 
"Reducing Multiple Applications." Dr. 
E. Kenneth Smiley, Vice President of 
Lehigh University, was the evening 

October 23, 1958, Mr. Click, Mr. 
Larson, and Mr. Fulcoly attended the 
Rutgers University Guidance Confer- 
ence at New Brunswick, New Jersey, 
for the guidance personnel of the State 
of New Jersey. The meeting was at- 
tended by approximately 300 coun- 
selors and guidance directors. Julius

sition of the Negro in higher edu- 


Mr. Alan D. Williams, Special In- 
structor in Law at N.A.C, was re- 
cently elected State Representative at

Nov. 14-15. Dr. Turner was particu- 
larly interested in an address by Ed- 
ward H. Litchfield, Chancellor of the 
University of Pittsburgh, on "Higher 
Education in Russia— a Challenge to 
America." Dr. Litchfield, chairman of 
a delegation of American educators 
who visited Russia last summer, 
summed up his conclusions by saying: 
"America should emulate the enthusi- 
asm with which Soviet Russia ap- 
proaches higher education, but should 
not emulate its methods." 

Mr. Click attended two recent 
meetings of New Jersey associations 
interested in personnel: the Personnel 
and Guidance Association, at Atlantic 
City Nov. 8, and the College Personnel 
Association, at West Long Branch, on 
Nov. 17. (Continued on ;«ige 4)

Aggies vs. CW Post College 

The Aggies bounced back from a 
narrow defeat at the hands of the 
Gallaudet to trounce C. W. Post 24-0 
on the rainy Akimni Field. 

C. W. Post was held to minus five 
yards ground coverage by the pow- 
erful Aggie line. Senior quarterback 
Bob Rush at the helm of the Aggie 
eleven mastered the job of calling 

Four plays originating from mid- 
field advanced the ball to the Post 
four-yard line. Spearheading the drive 
Rush passed to Faline for thirty-five 
yards. The score was made by Jack 
Schultz on a hand-off from Rush. Rush 
attempted to pass for the extra two 
points but failed, leaving the score 6-0 
in favor of the Aggies. 

Midway through the second period 
Post in punt formation lost the ball to 
the Aggies deep in their own territory 
on a bad pass from center. The Post 
line maintained a solid front, holding 
the Aggies within their five for two 
consecutive downs. However, Rush 
managed to sneak through from the 
one for the second Aggie score. Bill 
Sturm attempted the two points but 
was held. 

The rainy day crowd witnessed a 
powerful Aggie drive of 80 yards on 
17 plays at the beginning of the sec- 
ond half. Bob Rush led the drive by 
completing seven consecutive passes 
to his "nimble-fingered" receivers. The 
march was climaxed by Emory Mar- 
kovic's plunge from the one. The 
Aggies again failed to add the two 

Two fourth quarter passes by Rush 
accounted for the final Aggie tally. 
Sturm received the first pass for 25 
yards and Faline gathered in the sec- 
ond pass in the end zone. Faline failed 
on the conversion. 

Statistic-wise the Aggies played their 
finest game. Rush accounted for 152 
yards on aerials and his ground yard- 
age is totaled at 84. Post's only gains 
were 32 yards by passing. The Aggies 
held Post to four first downs while the 
Aggies earned 13. 

The season's record now stands at 
5-1-1. The big test came Saturday 
when the Aggies faced the powerful 
Trenton Lions. Results of that game 
will be published in the next issue of 
the Furrow. 


Ornamental Horticultural 

At the meeting of the Ornamental 
Horticultural Society on November 5 
a number of plans were suggested and 
agreed on by the members of that 

Firstly, it was decided that the em- 
blem for the society's jacket be 
changed. A final design was selected. 
The leaf of the Sugar Maple is now 
the official emblem of the club. In con- 
junction with the emblem, the circle 
between the library and Segal Hall 
will be re-landscaped, having a sugar 
maple,, donated by the club, serving 
as a living memorial of the club. 

The New York Botanical Gardens, 
it was decided, will be the scene of 
the first field trip. Cornell will be the 
scene of the second field trip. 

Ideas for club activities at A-Day 
include along with the usual plant 
stand, garden exhibits and flower show 
such things as individual educational 
exhibits and the decoration of the 
usual exhibits more so than ever 

It was decided that trophies be 
given to prize winners instead of the 
usual ribbon awards. 

Horticulture Club 

At the second meeting of the Horti- 
culture Club, held on Nov. 5, ideas for 
A-Day and club field trips were dis- 
cussed. Suggestions for field trips in- 
cluded visiting the experimental sta- 
tions of Cornell University, or of the 
U.S.D.A. in Beltsville, Md., the experi- 
mental department of Campbell Soup 
Co., or the Long Island project where 
plant mutations are produced. The 
club will decide on one of these edu- 
cational trips for this semester. 

Also, a committee was elected to 
select Horticulture Club jackets and 
emblems, both have to meet the Club's 

The third meeting on Nov. 18 was 
highlighted by a representative of the 
California Spray Chemical Corpora- 
tion who spoke and showed films. Re- 
freshments, supplied by Mrs. Jack 
Snope, were served after the meeting. 

Club meetings are open to any one 
at all who may be interested. Please 
feel free to drop in on any of the 

Contemporary Club 

On Thursday, November 6, the Li- 
brary was the scene of the first chess 
tournament between the faculty and 

students. Results are as follows: Gabe 
Bruck lost to Mr. R. D. Forbes and 
Leonard Hilsen lost to Mr. J. Feld- 
stein. The Faculty won! Although the 
participants in this first tournament 
were but a handful, the Contemporary 
Club plans to sponsor another tourna- 
ment on a larger scale compared to 
the last. 

At the meeting of the Contemporary 
Club on November 20, Chan Ho Lee 
spoke on a subject entitled "What 
Buddhism Means to Me." This was in 
preparation for an Interfaith Forum, 
which will be held at Kutztown State 
Teachers College. 

Agronomy Club 

At the meeting of the Agronomy 
Club on Nov. 10 the Program Com- 
mittee proposed a number of field 
trips to such places as out-of-state 
agricultural station, preferably Belts- 
ville, chemical companies, and brew- 
eries. So far the trip to Cornell in the 
next semester is definite. In the near 
future the Agronomy Club name will 
be changed to the National Agricul- 
tural College Agronomy Society. Be 
sure to attend the next meeting. In the 
case that no speakers and movies are 
available, the upperclassmen will dis- 
cuss their summer experiences, work- 
ing in the field of Agronomy. 

Poultry Science Club 

At the second meeting of the Poul- 
try Science Club on Tuesday, Novem- 
ber 4, a number of proposals were 

One dealt with a "Get-Acquainted 
Dinner" in the very near future. The 
date for this dinner and other details 
will be worked out at the next meet- 
ing. Last year at this time, a successful 
Thanksgiving raffle was run by the 
Poultry Club. This year the club is 
sponsoring a Christmas raffle with two 
turkeys and two or more pheasants as 

Glee Club 

At the meetings of the Glee Club on 
both November 5 and 12 plans were 
discussed concerning the Christmas 
Concert. To date the club's activities 
have been centered mainly around the 
rehearsals and location for the concert. 
Roger Blatt, secretary, has announced 
the probability of having the concert 
in the lobby of Lasker Hall, using the 
stairway as risers. 

In addition to this concert the club 
has been given the chance to sing on 
a Philadelphia radio station Dec. 21.

The members of N.A.C.'s team in- 
cluded: Leon Furth, Bart Glass, Albert 
Bennett, John Plog, Bob Stevens, and 
two alternates, Anthony Cabrales and 
Charles Phillips. 

In the contest twelve classes of live- 
stock were judged and reasons were 
given on eight classes. Our team fin- 
ished last, losing by three points. The 
University of Tennessee had the high- 
est score of 4,078 points, while we 
finished with 3,703. John Plog was 
third highest individual and Bart Glass 
ninth in the beef judging category. 
Bart Glass was the eleventh highest 
individual in all the classes and first 
in judging Shorthorn Cattle, for which 
he received a trophy from the Short- 
horn Association. Albert Bennett 
placed eleventh in the swine judging 

Dr. Tibor Pelle commented that the 
contest was considered a complete 
failure, not only by our college but 
also the other ten, even the winner! 
The official judges wer incompetent 
and demonstrated their poor abilities 
by incorrectly judging four classes 
among the twelve. Their mistakes 
were evident when Penn State ended 
in sixth place. Penn State's coach, 
along with the coach of Ohio State, 
considered two of the top beef judges 
in the country, placed only fourth or 
fifth in all twelve classes. The judges 
of these four controversial classes must 
have realized their mistakes, because 
they missed the banquet at which they 
were to give their reasons. 

Dr. Pelle would also like to mention 
that the winning team's total score 
was 4,078 out of the possible high of 
5,000. That never happened before. 
The difference between them and us 
was about 7%.

Report from Temple University 

A report submitted by Temple's 
Student Council Committee on cheat- 
ing calls for student representation on 
the University's Academic Discipline 
Committee and second, urges Univer- 
sity officials to make the necessary ar- 
rangements for the institution of a 
system whereby all students may have 
access to old final examinations. Other 
conclusions in the report include: 
1— "Cheating is an almost totally ac- 
cepted practice at the University. 
2— "Since it is apparent that any exam 
which is re-used will be accessible, 
no examinations should ever be re- 
used. Exams should be varied dis- 
tinctly every semester. 
3— "It seems that is some cases new 
examinations leak out to students. 
This may call for tighter super- 
vision in the makeup and duplicat- 
ing of exams. 
4— "All too often proctoring is a farce. 
More attentive and alert proctors 
should be utilized to discourage 
any cheating that may take place 
during the examination itself. 
5— "The action taken by the Academic 
Discipline Committee should be 
publicized to make students aware 
of the penalties incurred through 

In comparing Temple to N.A.C. 
with reference to the five conclusions 
listed above we will say: 
1— Cheating is certainly not an ac- 
cepted habit at N.A.C. and it never

will be accepted by students or 
faculty. We grant that cheating is 
and will be prevalent in any college 
as long as there are those who do 
not study or those who want to be 
assured of a suitable mark, but con- 
versely, cheating will always be 
shunned and kept to a bare mini- 
mum by students and others here 
at N.A.C. and other colleges. 

2— Here at N.A.C. some past exams are 
available as at any college and if 
these exams help the students in 
learning the subject it is a good 
thing. To our knowledge all exams 
given at N.A.C. vary. If the student 
knows the exams will be the same 
he should feel cheated of a chance 
to test his abihties. 

3— At some colleges it is known that 
examinations are available at a 
price or from the connections of a 
fraternity or other sources. Attempt- 
ing to acquire a new examination 
at N.A.C. is as foolish an attempt 
as trying to steal from Fort Knox. 

4— The vast majority of the proctoring 
here at N.A.C. is certainly no farce. 
It would take a crafty student to 
do any cheating in the presence of 
such eagle eyes as those of Dr. 
Elson, Dr. Turner, Dean Larson, 
and several others. Certainly no one 
can call such men as these inatten- 
tive or lax. 
5— The cheating done here at N.A.C. 
is hardly enough to make such a 
committee as the one above prac- 
ticable. Certainly most of the 
students here realize the penalties 
given for cheating. Generally they 
are a zero on the exam, and— or a 
failing of the course. 
In the five comparisons made above 
it is evident that N.A.C. has a good 
record concerning the amount of 
cheating that occurs here as compared 
with the amount that occurs else- 
where. This may be due to the relaxed 
atmosphere resulting from our small 
student body and close association 
with instructors or possibly to the 
scrutinizing of the students by each 
other since everyone knows everyone 

No matter what the reason is, we 
would like to ask you to keep up the 
honorable work, and help to decrease 
the amount of cheating even more. 


We, the Editors of the N.A.C. 
Furrow, wish to thank all involved in 
helping us in our new position. In 
keeping with the past Editors, we will 
try our best to bring the news of 
interest to the Students of N.A.C,

In keeping with the policy that 
was previously stated in the second 
issue of The Furrow, the library is 
continuing to add new and highly in- 
foiinative books on a variety of sub- 

Some examples of these are in the 
field of science: "What's Going on in 
Space?"; "Introduction to Evolution"; 
"Biology and Human Progress"; and 
"North with the Spring." In the field of 
Art and Literature the following can 
be found: "Art Through the Ages"; 
"Doctor Zhivago" (current Nobel Prize 
winner); and Mediaeval and Early 
Renaissance music up to 1525 from 
"Man and His Music." 

In the widely interesting subject of 
History: "A Night to Remember"; 
"Wai-Wai Through the Forests North 
of the Amazon"; "Day of Infamy"; and 
"Mark Twain America" are but a few 
of the new books that can be found 
for those interested. 

So once again I urge all students, 
faculty and others who are interested 
to pay a visit to the library and I'm 
sure regardless of your interests you 
will find new books to satisfy them. 
And who knows, you might create a 
new interest?

Students in various majors at N.A.C. 
participated in a field trip to the East- 
ern Region Research Laboratory of 
the U.S.D.A. at Wyndmoor (Phila- 
delphia) on Tuesday, November 25. 

The building is modern, spacious 
and incorporates many diff^erent lab- 
oratories. Each of these laboratories 
are equipped for work in a specific 
field of Agriculture. A few of these are: 

1. The removal of hair from hide with 

2. Research on economics of Maple 

3. Tanning of hides with aldehyde 

4. Super concentration of various fruit 

5. Dehydrating such things as cream, 

There are so many interesting things 
to be seen in this building, that an 
afternoon trip is hardly sufficient to 
see it all. Because of this, several dif- 
ferent tours were conducted at the 
same time. When the tours were over, 
notes were compared and in this way 
it was possible to get an idea of the 
extent of the work being done. 


Regional Meeting 

On November 15, Dean Meyer and 
Dean Turner attended a meeting of 
the Delaware Valley Council. 

The Council's interests are focused 
on studying the needs and planning 
facilities for the development of the 
Delaware Valley area. Its work in- 
cludes such aspects as highways, wat- 
erways, aviation facilities, industrial 
development, housing, and educa- 
tional needs. 

At this recent meeting of the Coun- 
cil various committee chairmen re- 
ported on the present status of their 
projects and pointed to future develop- 
ment in these areas. 

The guest speaker was Donald V. 
Hock, Mayor of Allentown, Pa. Mayor 
Hock spoke on the theme of the plan- 
ning and developing, as he has par- 
ticipated in this program, in the Allen- 
town area. 

Study of N.A.C. 

Dr. Henry C. Herge, Dean of Rut- 
gers University School of Education, 
and seven Doctoral Candidates of this 
school visited our campus Nov«n 
her 29. 

These students, who are college and 
secondary school teachers and admin- 
istrators, are going to study N.A.C. as 
their seminar project, and will be on 
our campus periodically for the next 
four months. Their study will concern 
nature, strength, limitations, direction, 
and future of N.A.C. Such questions 
will be reviewed as: What are the 
educational needs of the immediate 
area? Is the college able to supply 
these needs? 

Upon completion the results of this 
study will be made available to N.A.C. 
and will thus be helpful for future 
development of the College. It will he 
of value to the faculty in curriculum 
planning and will assist the Adminis- 
tration and Board of Trustees in their 
self-study of the institution and its 
potential for development.

cago in connection with the Inter- 
national Livestock Exposition on No- 
vember 29, 1958. 

Forty colleges from the United 
States and Canada were represented 
at this contest. N.A.C. beat Alabama

Charles Phillips, Al Bennett, John 
Plog, and Tony Cabrales. Bart Glass 
and Charles Phillips were highest on 
the N.A.C. team with Bart getting 813 
points and Charlie 792. 

A dinner was held on Sunday and 
several excellent speakers were heard. 
This along with the judging made the 
trip a great experience for all who 

This was the first time N.A.C. was 
represented at the international event. 
Dr. Pelle and the members of the 
team are grateful for having been 
given the opportunity to attend, and 
as Dr. Pelle said, "I believe it is a

ing up the women's morale. " 

"I come here with mixed emotions 
(after having a losing season at Swarth- 
more)— definition— It is like watching

Cadillac over a cliff." 

He reminisced about a Drexel - 
Swarthmore game a few years back. 
"You can put players on a field but 
you can't make them play" quoted by 
Drexel's coach. "A good thing about 
coaching is the lasting friendship you 
make with your men." 

"Football is a great game, and you 
are better men for having played it. 
But it is what you do after you stop 
playing and after you graduate that 
really matters."

Vol. Ill 

FEBRUARY 9, 1959 

No. 6 


On the night of Thursday, Janu- 
ary 15, the National Agricultural Col- 
lege had the honor of having as a 
guest speaker the internationally known 
writer. Pearl Buck. The subject of 
wh'ch Miss Buck spoke was "How 
Communism Came to China." 

?Miss Buck in private life is Mrs. 
Richard J. Walsh. She and her hus- 
band reside on their large Guernsey 
farm in the vicinity of nearby Dublin. 

Although born in the United States, 
Miss Buck, whose parents were mis- 
sionaries, spent most of her early life 
in China. She had thus become one of 
America's top authorities on this tre- 
mendously populated Asian nation, hi 
1938 she was recipient of the Nobel 
Prize in literature for her book, 'The 
Good Earth." 

Miss Buck was introduced by Bud 
Charlick, president of the Contem- 
porary Club. In her talk Miss Buck 
acquainted the audience (which com- 
pletely filled the Segal Hall auditor- 
ium) with a brief history of Chinese 
civilization and how its ruling dy- 
nasties came into power down through 
the centuries. She then went into a 
more detailed accoimt of how twen- 
tieth century China developed, begin- 
ning with the fall of the Manchu 
dynasty and concluding with the cur- 
rent establishment of the commune 
system. This forced-settlement pro- 
gram may be strengthening the eco- 
nomic position of China but it is surely 
lowering the human dignity of the 
Chinese people. 

Miss Buck gave a running account 
on the internal conflict between the 
well organized Communist organiza- 
tion and the weaker, corrupt go\'ern- 
ment of Chiang-Kai-Chek. She criti- 
cized the foolish stand which our gov- 
ernment takes on the non-recognition 
of a nation of 65() million people — 

by Jerry Mulnick 


one-quarter the population of the 
earth. She mentioned the extremely 
hostile view against America which is 
constantly being cultivated amongst 
the Chinese through a vast propa- 
ganda machine. She stressed the fact 
that the quicker the "bamboo curtain" 
is lifted, both by our state department 
and— to a lesser degree— by the Chi- 
nese People's Republic, the better off 
we will be. Contact, she asserted, be- 
tween the people of the United States 
and China, is the major factor that can 
lead us to lasting world peace. 

The audience found Miss Buck's 
talk very interesting due to her man- 
ner of speaking and her mentioning 
her own personal experiences. The 
college wishes to thank Miss Buck and 
Mr, Foihcs of thf C'oiitcniporary Club 
ior an enjoyable eseiiing.

The Snowflake Ball 

On the snowy Friday evening of 
January sixteenth, the sophomore class 
held its Snowflake Ball, which was the 
first dance of the new year. 

The cheerful gathering danced to 
the music of the Metronomes at the 
Lansdale Eagles which was decorated 
symbolically for the winter season. 

The first highlight of the evening 
was the selection of the queen of the 
Snowflake Ball. The alternates were 
Misses Susan Miller and Nancy Ward 
escorted by Michael Kopas and Craig 
Maxwell, respectively. Miss Susan 
Cook, Ernest Jordan's date, was chosen 
Queen of the Ball. All the girls re- 
ceived very nice gifts donated by 
merchants in the Doylestown area. 
The second highlight was a surprise 
to Harris Osborne, who won the .50-50 
club raffle for a profit of $40.25. 

In the first s(Kial success of the 
new year, the sophomore class would 
like to thank e%eryone for their sup- 


One of the familiar gripes being 
heard around N.A.C. these days is: 
"What can we do for recreation while 
on campus?" At this time last year, it 
would have been possible to say that 
this is not a truly justifiable gripe, 
but things have changed since then. 

At this time last year we had real 
paddles to use while playing ping 
pong. Where are they now? There 
were records in the juke box and 
movies were being shown on occasion 
to help break up the monotony. What 
has happened to these things? 

The only people on campus who 
can possibly answer these questions 
are the members of our Student 
Council. When a member of the 
Council is asked about the condi- 
tions which exist, the usual answer 
is a shrug of the shoulders and a 
"What can we do" attitude. Well, 
maybe they can't do too much, but 
they could at least try. 

Possibly because of financial or 
other problems, there may be some 
weak excuse for the recreational con- 
ditions, but there is no excuse for the 
Council not carrying out some of its 
so-called "Duties." Perhaps the Coun- 
cil members would like to tell us what 
has happened to the room inspections 
which were such a big thing at one 
time and what has happened to that 
justice dealing Student Court? 

A question we would like to ask the 
Council is, "Just what is the problem?"

You may feel that you don't have the 
backing of the student body and, if 
you don't, you certainly won't get it 
without at least attempting to do 
something. Why not make use of the 
school publications or try some other 
ways to gain more contact with the 
student body? ^^,^^ 

The students have honored youhy 
electing you to the Student Council 
and you certainly have done little 
to be proud of this past semester. Now 
that a new semester is just starting 
why not get to work and see what can 
really be done? We are certainly be-

them a chance, the student body will 
be, too. 

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Sir: 

We would like to take this oppor- 
tunity to extend our appreciation to 
the Contemporary Club for their ef- 
forts in engaging Pearl Buck to ad- 
dress the College. 

As students at N. A. C. we have 
looked forward to the opportunity of 
hearing such a prominent speaker as 
Pearl Buck. This informative and en- 
tertaining speech was certainly perti- 
nent in that it has given us keen per- 
ception to a problem which might one 
day play a prominent part in our 
responsibilities as citizens of this 

Perhaps it is only in this method of 
receiving first hand knowledge that 
we as future voters can fill with 
acumen the flaws left by newspaper 
coverage. We believe that contact 
with such learned and thought provok- 
ing people is a necessary factor in the 
education of prospective electors and 
responsible community members. 

We sincerely hope that the Con- 
temporary Club has set a precedent 
which will continue to grow and we 
are confident that the administration 
and the student body will find ways 
and means to continue this valuable 
form of education.

Mr. Editors, 

With respect to the editorial I read 
in the December 15 issue of the 
Furrow, "On Cheating at N.A.C." I 
think it timely and necessary that the 
true picture be brought to your atten- 
tion. I say "your" because I'm sure 
you are the only individual on campus 
who are uninformed about the excess 
of cheating that is done on campus. It 
isn't any secret to the administration 
or the faculty that cheating is a "com- 
mon practice" at N.A.C, wherever 

and whenever the opportunity avails 
itself (and that seems too often to use 
the expression uncommon). Your edi- 
torial stated that with the proctors 
present at exams, cheating, just as 
acquiring an exam preceding the exam 
itself, was virtually impossible, "like 
breaking into Fort Knox." It would be 
senseless to state names and places, 
but I'm sure it's common knowledge 
that these statements were and are 
untrue. The statement that offenders 
were always punished with either a 
zero in the respective course, or a 
failure in it, is also an unseen practice 
at N.A.C, In total I feel that your en- 
tire editorial was based on falsity 
which was stimulated by a desired 
mirage. There are many ideals on 
which the "press" is supported and 
your article showed disrespect to all 
of them. I sincerely feel that your in- 
tentions were noble but you feared 
meeting the problem head on, which 
resulted in printing a farce. You 
praised where you should have con- 
demned. Now that the problem is 
before the administration and faculty 
it would be in complete disregard of 
their responsibilities if the situatiofi 
were not altered. An appeal to the 
students would be an appeal for the 
"wheels to stop turning." My appeal 
to the faculty and administration is an 
appeal to the intelligencia and edu- 
cators of our society to apply the 
brakes and bring cheating to a halt. 
"Dignity exists not in possessmg hon- 
ors, but in deserving them"— Aristotle 

Editor's Note: We want to thank the 
writer of this letter for his acknowledgment 
of our "noble" intentions. We are sure he is 
not the only one who realized our intentions 
and motives. 

This column is not limited to a few per- 
sons — anyone may write a letter and all are 
welcome to do so.

On January 26 the club met again 
to discuss the program that the club is 
going to have for "A" Day. It was 
accorded that the exhibits will be 
classified as follows: One category for 
the club members only; another cate- 
gory for students who are not mem- 
bers of the club. These two categories 
are going to be divided into black and 
white sections; the entries in black and 
white by the club members are going 
to be classified separately as home or 
commercially processed. 

The deadline for entering pictures 
was set two weeks before "A" Day for 
those exhibitors not members of the 
club, and one week before "A" Day 
for club members. The prizes for each 
class are going to be: one first prize, 
one second, and one honorary mention.

N.A.C. Dairy at Farm Show 

The Dairy Department showed a 
dry three-year-old cow named NAC 
Roburke Pansy. She placed seventh in 
her class of three-year-olds out of 
nineteen competing animals. Much at- 
tention was paid to Pansy's pedigree 
by the visitors of the Farm Show, es- 
pecially in view of the fact that she 
made a record over 600 lb. of fat with 
her first calf. Pansy was sired by Pabst 
Sir Roburke Rag Apple who along 
with his son Moonheart Excellent 
have been heavily used in the NAC 
herd this past year. 

Our showing at the Farm Show was 
mentioned by Bill Bennett on the "Bill 
Bennett Show" of WCAU-TV Phila- 
delphia on Monday, January 12, 1959. 

Some time at the Farm Show was 
spent with David Gibson, Secretary of 
the Ayrshire Breeders' Association and 
Gus Bowley, manager of Strathglass 
Farms, Port Chester, New York. They 
accepted an invitation to visit the Col- 
lege on their way home and students 
in Animal Breeding course were able 
to meet and talk to them at that time. 

They also showed some interest in 
our developing a strong Ayrshire herd 
at the College. 

The Sophomore dairy majors had 
the good fortune to have John Morris, 
of the University of Maryland, who 
judged Holsteins and Ayrshircs at the 
Farm Show, present them privately 
his reasons for placing several classes 
at the show.

Food for Thought 

When you are a student in college, 
seize upon the good that is there. You 
get good by giving it. You gain ^l^y 
giving. Give sympathy and cheerful 
loyalty to the institution. Stand by 
vour Professors; they are doing the 
best they can. If the place is faultv, 
make it a better place by an example 
of cheerfully doing your work every 
day as best you can. 

The Furrow salutes the distinguished 
writer of the following letter:

Dear Dr. Work: 

This will acknowledge receipt of 
your letter of December 22, in which 
you inform me that your College is 
presently in the process of expanding 
the College Library, and inquire as to 
whether or not the Congressiotml

your school at this time. 

I am pleased to learn of the expan- 
sion of your College program, and you 
are certainly to be commended on the 
splendid progress the Agricultural 
College has made imder your direc- 

Of course, I will be most happy to 
designate the College as one of the 
recipients of the Record, and I hope 
that it will be helpful to your faculty 
and student body. 

Whenever I can be of furthe« as- 
sistance to you or the Agricultural

call on me. 

With kindest personal regards and 
all good wishes for the New Year, I am

Distinguished Visitors 

National Agricultural College re- 
cently had the honor to be chosen by 
the United Nations as the institution 
where an in-service training group of 
African Government Economists could 
best learn details of the science of 
agriculture— knowledge that could be 
passed on to their respective govern- 
ments and assimilated in the nations' 
overall development. 

The group consisted of eight Afri- 
can government officials. They arrived 
at the College on the morning of Jan- 
uary 29, accompanied by Mr. Carl 
Major Wright, Chief of the Bureau of 
Economic Affairs, United Nations. Dr. 
Turner, Dean of Agriculture and 
Science, and Mr. Meyer, Dean of Stu- 
dents, had arranged an instructional 
program for them. 

By means of lectures, various mem- 
bers of the faculty explained many 
phases of our educational program, 
including those covered by our seven 
majors and farm mechanization. After 
the on-campus activities, we took our 
guests on an off-campus tour which 
included visits to the egg hatchery 
Auction in Doylestown, and to the 
Summer Maid Creamery. At the 
creamery they studied processing and 
marketing procedures for both dairy 
products and eggs. 

At the end of their full day, the 
African group and Mr. Wright were 
entertained by President James Work 
at a dinner held at the Yorktown Inn, 
Elkins Park. Attending this dinner to 
assist Mr. Work in entertaining our 
distinguished guests were the follow- 
ing members of the Executive Com- 
mittee of our Board of Trustees, and 
their wives: Mr. and Mrs. Morris H. 
Goldman; Mr. and Mrs. Samuel 
Cooke; Mr. and Mrs. Fred L. Rosen- 
bloom; Mr. and Mrs. Leon L. Berko- 
witz; Mr. and Mrs. David Levine; Mr. 
and Mrs. Edward Rosewater; and the 
honorable Harry Shapiro, former State 
Senator and Secretary of Welfare of

New Name for N.A.C. 

Jerry Mulnick '61 

Approximately eighty per cent of 
the student body now attending 
the National Agricultural College 
will receive diplomas with a name 
other than the National Agricultural 
College engraved on them. For the 
third time in sixty-three years the 
name of this institution of learning will 
undergo a change of designation. This 
is due principally to the addition of 
two new majors, Biology and Chemis- 
try, which will be offered in the com- 
ing college year. Since the college is 
expanding, there is a possibility that 
other mjaors may be added to the 
College curriculum in the future and 
therefore the name selected must be 
broad enough to cover these fields in 
addition to agriculture. 

President James Work has suggested 
such names as National Agricultural 
& Scientific College, National Poly- 
technic Institute, and Delaware Val- 
ley College. Since the administration 
of the College has stated that all the 
suggestions from the study body will 
be given careful consideration, this 
reporter polled sixty per cent of the 
students (excluding the Seniors, since 
they are the final NAC graduating 
class) on their opinions as to the 
posible new name of our College. 
Taken into consideration was the 
question as to whether the traditional

N.A.C. Animal Husbandry 
At Penna. Farm Show 

The Animal Husbandry Club didn't 
capture the prize of "Grand Champion 
Hereford Bull" as it did last year but 
was honored with ribbons of which it 
may be proud. 

Our pride and joy Hereford bull, 
Jug-Head, placed second in his class. 
Our Hereford heifer placed first in her 
class and two of our Angus heifers 
placed third and fourth in their class, 
thus making a good showing in their 
fields of competition. 

Of the one Hampshire ram two 
Hampshire ewes, and two Cheviot 
ewes, there wasn't a champion but we 
did have good showings. 

The reason no hogs were shown was 
because there wasn't a class for cross- 

The Animal Husbandry Department

cattle. Jim Diamond and Dave Kant-

all other persons who participated in 
preparing the animals for the show.

Letters to The Editors 

Mr. Editor: 

After reading your editorial "What 
Can We Do for Recreation While on 
Campus?" I have one question: What 
can we do for recreation while on 
campus? This editorial was no more 
stimulating than revealing, for in its 
cynical lines lay unjust criticism for 
the Student Council at N.A.C. 

In a small college such as N.A.C. 
the individual is a name and not a 
number. Every student has the oppor- 
tunity to find and engage in activities 
which will develop his maximum ca- 
pacities. An opportunity to participate 
means a chance to develop self-con- 
fidence, initiative, leadership, and 
character so needed in all levels of 
life today. 

Student activities include: An inter- 
collegiate athletic program with foot- 
ball, basketball, and baseball. Clubs in 
the animal, dairy and poultry sciences, 
horticulture, ornamental horticulture,

agronomy, food industry, photog- 
raphy, and contemporary affairs. In- 
tramural sports for football, basket- 
ball, and baseball, and with the com- 
pletion of the new gym many more 
will be added. 

The "A" Day Show is coming up in 
the near future. Students are asked to 
join the judging teams, which com- 
pete at intercollegiate judging con- 
tests, the staffs of the Gleaner and 
Furrow, the band and the Glee Club. 

In spite of these activities it might 
be true that the jukebox isn't working, 
but this problem would not have 
arisen if someone had not broken it. 
You do have new or, as you so vividly 
put it, "real ping pong paddles." 

Movies are not shown at night be- 
cause they would interfere with the 
scheduling of club meetings and night 
classes, where a fellow student may 
pick up a few credits necessary for 
graduation. As for room inspection, 
are we still so young that "you" think 
Mother must check up on us or tuck 
us in at night? We no longer are col- 
lege students that have some pride for 
common cleanliness, clothes or habits, 
and to tidy up the room or sweep it 
out would be unheard of. If you look 
at the recreation room you will find 
the new equipment spread all over 
and never hung in its proper place. 
Or have you noticed the work that has 
been done for the completion of a 
skating rink? This and the new equip- 
ment that is so misused came about 
through efforts of the Student Council. 

But are we over-organized? No, we 
are by no means over-organized! How- 
ever, organizations are not imposed 
by the administration or Student 
Council but grow out of the special 
interest of some group of students. A 
lot of us would like to have our edu- 
cation put in a manuscript and handed 
to us. There are always people who 
are constantly complaining, but don't 
try to get the most out of what is 
offered to them. There are quite a 
number of things to be done on cam- 
pus—take advantage of them! 

It is noteworthy that the Student 
Council does not have the student 
backing on many matters. Everyone 
on campus knows the rules but, in 
most cases, does not try to obey them. 
As an example, students park where 
they please with no consideration of 
anyone. But when the Student Coun- 
cil was instructed to act upon this 
problem, revolution almost evolved 
from the fact that they did. "Obedi- 
ence is what makes government, and 
not the names by which it is called." 

The Student Council has been len- 

ient because they place themselves in 
the spot of the offended. They feel as 
a lot of good judges do— that some- 
times an offense is committed without 
proper consideration and it is con- 
sidered a mistake rather than an in- 
tended offense. No court, in school, or 
good law, should penalize a first of- 
fense when an investigation reveals 
that it was a natural incident that 
most any human being would indulge 
in without proper consideration of the 
outcome. And that is why the Student 
Council had acted in what they feel 
is a just manner. 

The Student Council is like the 
shifting sands, it stands without roots 
challenged by the emotion and inter- 
est of the student body. You elected 
your fellow students to the Council. 
Try to support them and give them 
some good, sound suggestions for 
school improvement, if you have them. 
A good organization cannot exist with- 
out problems that teach us to help 

It is unfortunate that the print coin- 
ing from our newspaper turns to pub- 
lic speculation and idle social com-

Gentlemen : 

After reading your "gripe" column, 
we have decided that you should be 
enlightened so that you will seek facts 
before writing and so that you may 
censor yourselves and inform other. 

First of all, we wish to assure you 
that the Student Council appreciated 
suggestions and justifiable criticism. I 
hope you are aware that anyone can 
criticize but students who are "doers" 
don't find time to criticize. If you must 
criticize, please direct this criticism to 
the proper persons. 

Now to discuss the points which you 
mentioned. This year you have "real" 
ping pong paddles (they are new). 
You also have new tables but suitable 
facilities are not yet ready. Can't you 
please be patient and take these facts 
into consideration? 

The comments referring to the juke- 
box is your one and only justifiable 
gripe. I will not mention the Student 
Council's difficulties regarding this 
problem for you may feel we are mak- 
ing excuses. Incidentally, the Council 
wouldn't have had a jukebox problem 
if the box hadn't been tampered with. 

If you analyze our school activities 
schedule you will see why we haven't 
been able to schedule the movies. The

At the time of the last printing, 
Emory Markovic and Carl Pfeufer 
were not playing basketball because 
of study conflicts. It is good to know 
that they have rejoined the team and 
have given it the added strength it 

On February 24 the Aggies play 
Trenton State Teachers College. Keep 
this evening free for one of the biggest 
games this season. Let's have the fac- 
ulty and student body come to the 
game and cheer the boys to a victory! 

The J. V. basketball team has been 
coming steadily under the guidance of 
former Aggie basketball player Duane 
'Flecks" Bair, 

A baseball meeting was held on 
February 16. Forty boys turned out 
for the meeting. Emory Markovic said 
that practice won't start until the sec- 
ond week in March or whenever the 
weather permits. 

Aggies Top Eastern Baptist 

On Saturday, Dec. 6, the Aggies 
topped Eastern Baptist College 68-47 
on the latter's court. This was the 
Aggies first official game of the '58-'59 

Only five points ahead at half-time 
the Aggies came back in the second 
half with some fine shooting from Jack 
Briggs and Dave Bjornson. High man 
for the Aggies was Jack Briggs with 23 
points while junior Dave Linde was 
next in line with 18. 

Aggies vs. Trenton 

On Tuesday, December 9, Trenton 
Teachers topped the Aggies 88-82. 
The Aggies were hampered through- 
out the game by 35 fouls. High man 
for the team was Dave Linde with 28 
points and Carl Pfeufer was second 
with 22 points. Pfeufer did a spec- 
tacular job on the rebounds, as he 
controlled both backboards. 

The J. V. also tasted defeat at the 
hands of Trenton. The score was 
68-49 with 36 fouls called against the 

It is interesting to note that the 
Aggie J. V. matched Trenton in the 
field goals, and lost the game on the 
many extra points the Teachers picked 
up on the foul line. 

Aggies vs. Phila. Pharmacy 

The Aggies won their third basket- 
ball game of the season as they 
downed Phila. Pharmacy. Everyone on 
the team enjoyed a good night as the 
Aggies racked up 97 points to Phar- 
macy's 71. High man for the Aggies 
was senior Bjornson. 

In the J. v. game which preceded 
the varsity romp, the J. V.'s won 61-38. 

Club Notes 

Poultry Science Club 

Ken Bergman '59 

At the last meeting of the Poultry' 
Science Club held on Wednesday, 
February 18, Colonel Kendall loaned 
a booth to the Poultry Club which in 
turn loaned it to the "A" Day Com- 

The N.A.C. Poultry Club, has been 
designated to write up a "Newsletter" 
which is printed every month by a 
different college or university poultry 
department. It tells of that particular 
college's activities in the field of poul- 
try in the past, present, and future. We 
are to print it up for the month of 

"A" Day Committee 

Ken Bergman '59 

At a meeting of the committee of- 
ficers and the faculty on February 4 
it was agreed that "A" Day would be 
two days as it was last year. President 
Work approved of this also. 

At this meeting it was suggested 
that the new gym may be dedicated 
on "A" Day. 

At the last regular meeting of the 
"A" Day Committee on February 18 
the information booth, discussed in 
the last issue of the Furrow, was 
promised to the Committee by the 
Poultry Club and Colonel Kendall.

Lincoln vs. Aggies 

Lincoln University, seeking revenge 
for the defeat which the Aggies 
handed them this season in football, 
showed that they had better cagemen 
than gridders by downing the Aggies 
97-71. Dave Linde was high for the 
Aggies with 23 points. 

Aggies vs. Eastern Baptist 

Dave Bjornson with 29 and Dave 
Linde with 26 points were the main 
contributions for the Aggies in their 
defeat of Eastern Baptist. The Aggies 
took the honors with a score of 81-71. 
Earlier this season the Aggies downed 
Eastern Baptist 68-47. The difference 
in these two scores shows that the 
Aggies are missing the services of 
recent team member Carl Pfeufer. De- 
spite real hustling by Freshman Bob 
Frantz and Junior Emory Markovic,

Intramural Basketball 

Stew Meacher 

The Intramural Basketball League, 
composed of two teams from each 
class, has been in full swing since 
December 8. 

Leading the league at present is the 
Senior team headed by Dick Bowman. 
This team is not running away with 
the league, however, as was earlier 
expected. The Junior team number 
one under co-captains Al Silverman 
and Frank Radican is a hot second. 

The Sophomore team headed by 
Rudy Mesnak, was second until they 
dropped out of the league, in conse- 
quences of a happening with Bow- 
man's team. 

The games are played in the Pres- 
byterian Church in Doylestown under 
the direction of either Ed Baker or 
Gus Crissman who faithfully keep 
score. Most of the games are poorly 
officiated, except when Huck Johnston 
is in charge of the foul calling. The 
games will continue until March 10 
and then the All-Star game will be 

The Senior team number two under 
Jim Jackson has a lot of potential if 
they would only show up for their 
games. The Sophomore two team has 
been making a good showing, with 
Girth, Klein and Gontek starring. The 
two Freshman teams have not won 
many games. The Freshman two team 
did however upset the Senior two 
team 30-21. 

New Additions To Library

the election of Wes Merz to the Stu- 
dent Council. 

On Student Indifference 

You simply detest a "Big Joe" or a 
"Little Joe" yet you seem to lean to- 
ward a formidable "Uncle Joe" by 
your apathy. 



Council has been hampered all year 
trying to schedule a meeting without 
conflict. For one semester our meet- 
ings were restricted to noon time, 
which limited us to about 45 minutes 
when our usual meetings last 13t hours. 
You made a statement, "When a 
member of the Council is asked about 
the conditions which exist the usual 
answer is a shrug of the shoulders and 
"What can we do?" attitude. How true. 
Yes, there is no excuse for the Council 
not carrying out its "so-called duties" 
but have you ever admitted that you 
as students have duties? Do you really 
support us? Just take the parking situ- 
ation for example; who does not know 
the parking regulation? Yet, how many 
violate the regulation? Is the Council 
an enforcing body or an intermediate 
representative legislating body? This 
also applies to your inquiry about 
"what has happened to that justice 
dealing Student Court?" Do you hon- 
estly feel that we as your fellow stu- 
dents can judge you with sincerity and 
moderation and still maintain tran- 

"What happened to the room in- 
spections?" I'm sure you deem this a 
necessary function of the Council. Do 
you keep your room clean just because 
it's going to be inspected. Everybody 
in College ought to be sociable and 
mature enough to realize that every- 
thing has a place and that cleanliness 
is a personal matter. 

As you recognize the Council does 
have a problem. It's not financial or 
otherwise, it is trying to satisfy every, 
one, all the time. Is this possible?

CLUB NOTES (cent d) 

A motion was pas.sed that the clubs 
with no income on "A" Day will com- 
bine to run the Bar-B-Que, if they 
want to. 

Four new committees were formed: 
a ribbons and trophy committee, fi- 
nance committee, special events com- 
mittee and a dedication committee. 

Pennsylvania. Other representatives of 
N.A.C. at this dinner were Mr. Wil- 
liam A. Smith, Assistant to the Presi- 
dent and Controller; Mr. and Mrs. 
Meyer; and Dr. and Mrs. Turner. 

In his address of welcome President 
Work emphasized the principle upon 
which N.A.C. was founded and upon 
which it has continued to operate for 
63 years. He then called upon Mr. 
Jambo of Sudan to explain in behalf 
of the visiting group the program of 
study set up Mr. Wright which they 
have followed during their five month 
stay in this country. 

Mr. Jambo told of the great need in 
the young nations of Africa to educate 
their peoples in all aspects of agricul- 
tural, industrial, and financial econ- 
omy. He expressed great appreciation 
of the cooperative help he and his 
fellow Africans had received from the 
In-Service Training Program of the 
United Nations. He made an urgent 
plea for as many Americans as could 
do so to visit the various countries of 
Africa, so that we might learn at first 
hand how great are the potentials 
there, not only in the material, but 
also in human resources. Other mem- 
bers of the African group expressed 
their appreciation of what they had 
learned during their visit to N.A.C. 
and the hospitality we had shown 

Speaking for the United Nations, 
Mr. Wright explained the work that 
it is carrying out through its In-Service 
Training Program to further the de- 
velopment of new nations. This is a 
phase of the United Nations' work 
which it is safe to assume is unfamiliar 
to most Americans. 

Speaking for the College, in addi- 
tion to Mr. Work, were Messrs. Gold- 
man, Cooke, Rosenbloom and Shapiro. 
The consensus was that as a result of 
the visit of this distinguished group 
the College had greatly sharpened its 
concept of the importance of its con- 
tributing, in what way it can, to the 
education in economics of struggling 
young nations. 

Our visitors were as follows: From 
Ghana, Daniel Baisie, Deputy Ac- 
countant General, Treasury Paul Tid- 
ings Asem Steiner, Senior Executive 
Officer, Ministry Finance. From Libya: 
Abdel Salem Aly El Mehdawi, Deputy 
Director, Development Council, Office 
of the Prime Minister; Ahmed Jamil 
Hasan Bey, Controller of Price, Con- 
troller of Trade Registrv and Trade 
Marks, Administration of Tripolitania. 
From Somalia: Ahmed Mohamid Ali

della Somalia", Italian Trusteeshin 
Administration; Abdi Mahamid Farah

Military Administration. From Sudan: 

NEW NAME (cont'd)

name would be applicable to any new

names such as Agricultural & Scientific

$239,200 Boost by 

U. S. Senate 

The National Agricultural College 
has been notified that a bill is now 
before the State House of Representa- 
tives in Harrisburg, calling for an 
appropriation to the college amount- 
ing to $239,000. 

The money will be for maintenance 
for the two-year fiscal period begin- 
ning next June 1. 

Sponsors of the bill are Repub- 
lican Reps. Alan D. Williams, Jr. of 
New Britain and Mrs, Margarette S. 
Kooker of Quakertown, and Democrat 
James J. A. Gallagher of Lower Bucks 

College president James Work said 
today that he was pleased to learn that 
our Bucks County legislators in Har- 
risburg are going all out to ha\e this 
bill passed. 

Rapid strides are being made at the 
college and a number of improvements 
are under way, including improved 
courses and the addition of se\'eral 
new courses. 

At the present time the new $190,000 
gymnasium is nearing completion on 
the college campus, through the gen- 
erosity of benefactors of the college. 
It is planned to dedicate the new 
building in May. 

Coach Applicants 

At the present time the hundred or 
more applications for the football 
coaching job at National Aggies, are 
undergoing screening by a committee 
headed by President Work. The new 
coach will succeed former Philadel- 
phia Eagles star, Pete Pihos whose 

Fellow Students 

It's a shame that in every barrel 
there is a "bad apple." It seems that 
in our barrel there is, a "bad apple" 
that doesn't care for our gym or other 
property. I think it is a shame that 
some people carry a destructive atti- 
tude and want to destroy college prop- 
erty and what recreational facilities 
are offered. I am not making an appeal 
that this student or these students 
stop, because all other appeals seem to 
have fallen on deaf ears. My appeal is 
to those students who know of the 
students responsible for this destruc- 
tion. Let us help our college and our- 
selves by casting out this type of un- 
desirable student. If you have a "bad 
apple" in the barrel, it will continue 
to spread harm. So let us prevent 
more harm from coming, take and turn 
this "bad apple" over to our Student 
Council, then maybe we can once 
again enjoy our gym windows, audi- 
torium seats, recreational facilities, 
and other surroundings, along with 
the desirable students.

Breed Program at N.A.C. 

In view of the increasing importance 
of artificial insemination in the dairy 
business, and in view of the demand 
by students for some training in this 
field, the Dairy Department at the 
National Agricultural College is or- 
ganizing a program of instruction in 
artificial insemination. The instruction 
will be offered to seniors in Dairy Hus- 
bandry in connection with their Field 
Laboratory, a course designed to en- 
able students to acquire practical 
skills in their field of specialization. 
Associated with Arthur Brown and 
Webster Allyn of the National Agri- 
cultural College faculty, the following 
men will serve as instructors: John 
Schwenk, manager of Lehigh Valley 
Cooperative Farmer Dairy Herd Im- 
provement Center; Robert Young and 
David Borsoi, inseminators at Lehigh 
Valley; and Dr. Robert W. Elkins, 
veterinarian at Buckingham Animal 
Hospital. Mr. Borsoi is a graduate of 
the National Agricultural College. 

Instruction will be offered in the 
following phases of artificial insemi- 
nation: history, organization, and op- 
eration of bull studs; semen collection; 
examination, dilution, and storage of 
semen; handling frozen semen; anat- 
omy, physiology, and pathology of the 
reproductive systems; and, practice in 
insemination of cows. Contemplated 
also are trips to the Lehigh Valley Bull 
Stud in Allentown and to the South- 
astern Pennsylvania Artificial Breed- 
ing Cooperative, managed by David 
Yoder in Lancaster. 


In the January, 1959 issue of Journal 
of Dairy Science is an article by Rob- 
ert A. Marklev entitled "Effect of Ni- 
trogen Fertilization Supplementation 
Upon the Digestibility of Grass Hays." 
Mr. Markley is a graduate of NAC, 
class of 1953, and majored in Dairy 
Husbandry. He recently received his 
M.S. from Rutgers University and is 
currently working on his doc^^orate.

Letter of Thank You 



TE 326/ 1 ( 1-5 ) 6 February 1959 

Dear Mr. Work, 

This is to thank you for the won- 
derful day we spent with you and your 
staff at Doylestown last week. 

It was indeed a very tired group 
that returned to Philadelphia on 
Thursday evening, but my African 
friends were all full of praise for the 
way in which the programme had 
been arranged and the many things 
they had seen and learned, which, be- 
yond doubt, will prove of great value 
to them when they return to their 
respective countries. 

With regard to the dinner which 
you arranged with the members of the 
Board of Trustees, I would like to 
say that I have seldom in iny life seen 
such a cordial welcome and enthusi- 
astic response from the guests. As an 
international official whose function in 
life is nothing more than to be au 
"iphon," I felt a profound gratitude to 
our hosts for what they had done for 
all of us. 

As you have already heard fron> the 
speeches, they have joined me in a 
most cordial thank you. 

With best personal regards, I am. 

Yours sincerely, 

Carl Major Wright,

Changes in the Penn Relays Baseball Season at N.A.C. 

There have been some changes an- 
nounced for the Penn Relays Carnival 
at Franklin Field, April 24-25. We 
would like to pass these changes on to 
our readers. As you probably know, 
the feature race of the Relay Carnival 
is the One-Mile Relay Championship 
of America. Starting this year the race 
will be restricted to the fastest six 
teams filing an entry. The sprint med- 
ley relay championship of America 
will also be limited to the six fastest 
teams. Additional sprint medley races 
(440, 220, and 880) will be scheduled 
for the other colleges. 

For the first time there will be two 
races in the 440- and 880-yard relays. 
On the basis of the Friday qualifying 
heats, the six fastest foursomes in each 
race will be in the relay championship 
of America event with the second six 
fastest teams running a separate race. 

The six outstanding men will com- 
pete in the shotput, discus throw, jave- 
lin throw, hammer throw, high jump 
and pole vault. All other college men 
will compete in a separate event run- 
ning concurrently with the champion- 
ship. This last event is new this year. 
Up until this year this was just one 

These important changes have be"bn 
made in the organization of the Penn 
Relay to make the world's largest track 
meet more palable to the spectators. 

For those who don't know much 
about the Penn Relays, it is essentially 
a gathering place for the college track 
teams of the East. 

The Penn Relays started in 1895. 
That year they had only the one-mile 
relay championship. Today the Penn 
Relays have become the world's larg- 
est track meet. 

Some of the outstanding athletes in 
this year's carnival are John Thomas, 
Boston University's freshman, world 
indoor titleholder for the high jump; 
Don Bragg, world indoor recordholder 
for the pole vault; and Bob Gutowski, 
world's outdoor recordholder for the 
pole vault. 

N.A.C. Band News 

On Tuesday night, March 31, the 
National Agricultural College Band, 
in conjunction with members of the 
Owens-Illinois Co. Band, presented a 
concert for the veterans of the Wil- 
mington, Delaware, Veterans Adminis- 
tration Hospital. The combined bands, 
ably directed by Mr. McWilliams, in 
the absence of N.A.C.'s Mr. Merald 
Sockwell, presented compositions 

Spring is in the air, and with spring 
comes the national sport of America, 

The baseball season at NAC brings 
strong hopes that we can repeat as 
champs of the Delaware V^alley Con- 

Coach Maskas will build this year's 
team around Emory Markovic and Bill 
Shull. These two players make up one 
of the best keystone groups in the 

Practice started Wednesday Mar. 1 1 
but as we had our annual spring snow- 
fall that night, only the pitchers and 
catchers were called to work out in the 
Doylestown Armory Thursday and 
Friday. Practice was in full swing 
starting Monday, March 15. 

There was a big turnout for the 
team this year with a total of forty- 
eight signing up. 

Pitching will be the big problem 
this year, as with the loss of Bill Scott 
we are left with a big hole in our 
pitching staff. It is hoped that Bill 
George and John Merril can fill some 
of this gap. 

All in all, things look pretty bright 
for the baseball season. Let's get out 
and support the team this year. The 
first game will be played at home on 
Thursday, April 9. The Aggies play 
Kings College and the following 
schedule is planned.

Let's Organize All Our 
Alumni Chapters 

When the college was visited by 
representatives of the Middle States 
Association of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools in March 1958, one of the 
questions was: "How active are your 
alumni chapters?" 

According to our records we have 
listed chapters in Doylestown, Phila- 
delphia, New York, Boston, Baltimore, 
Pittsburgh, Chicago, St. Louis, and 
Los Angeles. To my knowledge, the 
chapters that have an active organized 
program are as follows: 

1. Doylestown-Philadelphia Chap- 
ter; President, Victor Ranso '54. 

2. New England Chapter ( Boston ) ; 
President, Nonnan S. Berkowitz '42. 

3. New York-New Jersey Chapter. 
This chapter has been recently orga- 
nized by Edward Cooper '57. Meet- 
ings are held at the Host Restaurant, 
Jersey City, New Jersey. 

The articles and by-laws of the 
alumni association (revised April 15, 
1950) states under article VI that 
chapters should be organized as fol- 



"Section 1. Each Chapter shall be 
designated by a geographical loca- 

"Section 2. Each Chapter shall have 
at least 10 members." 

"Section 3. An active Chapter shall 
have regularly elected officers and 
hold at least one meeting annually." 

"Section 4. Upon formation of an 
active Chapter its constitution shall be 
submitted to the Executive Committee 
of the Association for approval. Any 
revisions of its constitution shall be 
submitted to the Executive Committee 
of the Association for approval." 

Section 5. A copy of the constitu- 
tion of each Chapter shall be filed 
with the Secretary of the Association." 

"Section 6. Each Chapter shall no- 
tify the Secretary of the Association of 
its duly elected officers immediately 
upon their election." 

As our alumni chapters are an im- 
portant function of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation it is our desire that the above 
named chapters become active organi- 
zations. Please write to me and I will 
be happy to furnish more detailed

Past Poultry Dept. Head 

Joins Penn State 

Extension Staff 

Dr. Ranio K. Lanson, University of 
Maine, today was named food tech- 
nologist on the agricultural extension 
staff of the Pennsylvania State Uni- 
versity, effective July 1, 1959. 

Dr. H. R. Albrecht, extension di- 
rector, said Dr. Lanson's work will be 
in poultry and will deal with sanita- 
tion and quality control in both eggs 
and poultry meat. It is designed as 
an aid to an improved marketing pro- 
gram. Dr. Lanson will have the rank 
of associate professor of agricultural 
economics extension. 

From North High School, Wor- 
cester, Mass., he entered University 
of Massachusetts, graduating there in 
1942 with a major in poultry science, 
and returned in 1946 for his master's 
degree in agricultural education and 
poultry science. He majored in poul- 
try science at Rutgers University for 
his doctorate. 

He taught vocational agriculture in 
the high schools of Cabot and Marsh- 
field, Vt., for a year, and for five years 
at Worchester High School. From 
1948 to 1953 he headed the poultry 
department of National Agricultural 
College, Doylestown, and since then 
has been with the University of Maine 
as assistant poultry scientist. 

As a high school instructor, he con- 
ducted evening schools for farmers, 
and served as adviser to the Future 
Farmers of America. He was president 
of the Worchester County Poultry 
Association and secretary-treasurer 
of the Massachusetts Association of 
Vocational Agricultural Teachers. 

While at Doylestown he helped to 
organize the Bucks County Poultry 
Association and served on the board 
of Directors. He is the author of 
twenty-six research papers and 
general articles on poultry manage- 
ment, marketing and physiology. 

Penn Relays 

For the first time in the history of 
the College we entered a Relay Team 
event was the College 440-yard Relay 
Championship of America. The team 
was comprised of Joseph Teller '62, 
Bill Wilson '62, Frank Radican '60, 
Ed. Vinecour '60, and alternate 
Everett Menkens '60. Competing in 
the same heat were teams from 
Abilene Christian (holders of the 
World's Record in this event), Navy, 
North Carolina A. & T., Maryland 
State, and Montclair Teachers'. 

Although N.A.C. finished last in 
this heat, they missed qualifying for 
the finals by one-tenth of a second. 
The boys are certainly to be admired 
for their fine showing, and they have 
gained valuable experience for the 
future. Plans have already been start- 
ed for a Track Team for next year. 
"Congratulations" to Frank Radican, 
who has been elected to Captain this 
team. We also should give a hand to

I have a chemistry teacher, 

I shall not pass. 
He maketh me to show ignorance 

At the front of his class. 
He giveth me more than I can learn 

He lowereth my grades 
Yea, though I walk through the valley 
of knowledge, 
I do not learn. 
He fireth questions at me 

In the presence of my classmates 
He annointeth my head with 
My eye runneth over, 
Surely atoms and molecules 

Shall follow me all the davs of my 
And I shall dwell in the cht'mistry 
lab forever. 

Tour of Four Famous 
Montgomery Co. Gardens 

On Friday, May 8th, the Junior 
Ornamental Hort students were the 
guests at a spring garden tour and tea 
given by the Women's Auxiliary of the 
National Agricultural College, for the 
benefit of the library fund of the Col- 

Four distinctively different gardens 
were open from 1 until 4 P.M. They 
consisted of the Gardens of Mrs. Bert- 
ram F. Roland, 1050 Dixon I^ne, 
Rvdal, a contemporary Garden; Mrs. 
Howard A. Wolf, Tockington, 856 
Meetinghouse Road, Jenkintown, a 
colonial Garden; Mrs. Lessing J. 
Rosenwald, Alverthrope, 511 Meet- 
inghouse Road, Jenkintown, a garden 
and pool with a woodland setting; 
and the garden of Mrs. Leon C. Sun- 
stein, Spring Heather, Spring Avenue 
and Heather Road, Elkins Park, a 
small formal garden and terrace set- 

Tea was served at the home of Mrs. 
Murray Makransky, Chairman of the 
club, from 3 until 5 P.M. 

There were four hostesses at each 
garden and the gardeners were on 
hand to answer pertinent questions. 

The program was headed by Mrs. 
Richard Becker, President of the 
Woman's Auxiliary, National Agri- 
cultural College; Mrs. Leon Merz, 
Secretary of Woman's Auxiliary Gar- 
den Club; Mrs. Murray Makransky,

As the academic and journalistic 
year draws to a close, the editors wish 
to make their grateful acknowledge- 
ment to Henry H. G. Rose, of the 
class of 1957. 

Prior to the spring of his gradua- 
tion year much wishful thinking had 
been indulged in by students, faculty, 
and administration about a regularly 
printed news sheet at N.A.C. This 
campus newspaper was intended to 
supplement, but in no sense supplant, 
the long-established Gleaner. The 
thinking, however, was not transform- 
ed into a reality until Henry Rose 
"ram-rodded" Volume I of the N.A.C. 
Furrow. By good-humored persist- 
ence, and with intense devotion to his 
dma mater, Henry somehow achieved 
three very ceditable issues of the new 
publication in the spring of 1957. 

A combination of circumstances— 
chiefly lack financial support— pre- 
vented the appearance of more than 
one issue of Volume II during the '57- 
'58 academic year. But the interest in 
a college news sheet had meanwhile 
built up to a point where an allotment 
to Furrow was included in the 1958- 
59 publication fee collected of all 
students. With this modest but assur- 
ed financial backing, Lorenzo Fon- 
seca and Anthony Fritchie, both of the 
class of 1960, launched Volume III of

Spring Judging Livestock 

The first day judging was at Rally 
Farms, Millbrook, New York. The stu- 
dents judged six classes of Angus Cat- 
tle and gave reasons on three classes; 
on that day the team finished fifth 
place with 1,898 points. Junior stu- 
dent Joe Exley was ninth highest in- 
dividual with 392 points. The highest 
score on that day for the winning team 
of Penn State was 2,031 points and the 
score for the highest individual from 
Penn State was 408. On that day our 
team consisted of Joe Exley, Dave 
Kuehne, Lorenzo Fonseca, Dave Kan- 
tner. Ken Lipton; they scored in the 
above sequence. 

The second day the students judg- 
ed at the University of Connecticut- 
nine classes of livestock, three sheep, 
three beef cattle, and three hogs and 
a special contest was on two Morgan 
Worses counting s( paratelv. Thev pavp 
five sets of reasons in the general live- 
stock contest and one set of reason.s 
on the horses. On this day our team 
consisted of Frank McConnell, Harold 
Dietrick, Dave Kantner, Al Jablonsky 
and Joe Exley. They scored in tlie se- 
quence of their listing. The team end- 
ed up in fifth place with 2,575 points 
in the general livestock classes and 
in the third place with 625 ix)ints in 
the horse classes. 

The team was fifth in beef, third 
in sheep, third in swine, and third in 
horses. We would have been in the 
second place in the horse classes but 
one of our students turned a blank 
card in and lost forty-six points. In 
the horse judging, Harold Detrich was 
second and Lorenzo Fonseca eighth 
highest individual. 

Judging the third day was at the 
University of Massachusetts two hog 
classes, three sheep classes, three beef 
classes and gave three sets of reasons. 
The team, on that day, consisted of 
Lorenzo Fonseca, Pat Mihlfried, Dave 
Kantner, Frank McConnell, and Joe 

They ranked in the sequence of 
the listing. On that day our team 
finished second with 2,266 points. The 
team was first in sheep, third in beef 
and hogs. Lorenzo Fonseca was 
second highest individual with 480 
points (on placing he was first high- 
est individual.but he lost by II points 
on his reasons). Pat Mihlfried was 
fourth highest and Dave Kantner 10th 
highest individual. 

The participating Colleges were: 
Penn State University, Cornell Uni- 
versity, University of Connecticut, 
University of Maryland, University of

What is a Football Player? 

by Gary Stapleton 

Between the innocence of boyhood 
and the dignity of man, we find a 
sturdy creature called a football 
player. Football players come in as- 
sorted weights, heights, jersey colors 
and numbers, but all football players 
have the same creed: to play every 
second of every minute of every pe- 
riod of every game to the best of their 

Football players are found every- 
where—underneath, on top of, running 
around, jumping over, passing by, 
twisted from or driving through the 
enemy. Teammates rib them, officials 
penalize them, students cheer them, 
kid brothers idolize them, coaches 
criticize them, college girls adore 
them, and mothers worry about them. 
A football player is Courage in cleats, 
Hope in a helmet, Pride in pads, and 
the best of Young Manhood in mole- 

When your team is behind, a foot- 
ball player is incompetent, careless, 
indecisive, lazy, uncoordinated and 
stupid. Just when your team threatens 
to turn the tide of battle, he misses a 
block, fumbles the ball, drops a pass, 
jumps offside, falls down, runs the 
wrong way or completely forgets his 

A football player is a composite- 
he eats like Notre Dame, sleeps like 
Notre Dame, but, more often than not, 
plays like Grand Canyon High. To an 
opponent publicity man, he has the 
speed of a gazelle, the strength of an 
ox, the size of an elephant, the cun- 
ning of a fox, the agility of an 
adagio dancer, the quickness of a cat 
and the ability of Red Grange, Glenn 
Davis, Bronko Nagurski and Jim 
Thorpe— combined. 

To his own coach he has, for press 
purposes, the stability of mush, the 
fleetness of a snail, the mentalitv of a 
mule, is held together by adhesive 
tape, bailing wire, sponge rubber and 
has about as much chance of playing 
on Saturday as would his own grand- 

To an alumnus a football player is 
someone who will never kick as well, 
run as far, block as viciously, tackle 
as hard, fight as fiercely, give as little 
ground, score as many points or gener- 
ate nearly the same amount of spirit 
as did those particular players of his 
own yesteryear.

March 23, 1959 


I thoroughly enjoy receiving "The 
Furrmv" and wish to express my sin- 
cere thanks for the same. I think it is 
probably one of the best publications 
ever put out at N.A.C. 

I am especially glad to see the 
publication of the conditions, feats, 
opinions, and views just as they exist, 
without being censored. This was not 
possible a few years ago. I was par- 
ticularly interested in your "gripe" 
columns. It may please you, and all 
other gripers, to know that these very 
same gripes existed ten years ago. 

Among my many activities, I was 
a member of the student council and 
chairman of the student activities. In 
both of these cases, the success or fail- 
ure of the organization depends al- 
most entirely on the cooperation re- 
ceived from the student body. More 
than once we were ready to give up 
in despair. But, it's a challenge. 

The "plight of the ping-pong pad- 
dles", and the juke-box is not only a 
concern of the Student Council, but 
of every member of the student body. 
Our juke-box and records were pur- 
chased by contributions by the stu- 
dent body (occasionally solicited), 
and a coin box kept in the canteen 
where students would deposit their 
"odd pennies" and their bottle -deposit 
refunds. Room inspections were not a 
major gripe of many. Those who do 
gripe about it, usually are the ones 
that make inspection necessary. The 
condition of the dorms is certainly a 
major concern of the college. 

Wishing you all the very best of 
luck and more griping ahead, I re- 

Very sincerely yours, 

Samuel Silver '50 

When I was a student at N.F.S. the 
seniors placed a cigar-store Indian 
over the entrance of Segal Hall and 
every day each freshman had to bow 
before this wooden figure and intone, 
"Hail, chief Za-Za!" 

Who is this "Chief Za-Za" of N.A.C. 
today, before whom each student 
must ceremoniously remove his shoes 
before entering the portals of the 
Gym for the dubious pleasures of a 
"Sock dance"? 

I can visualize our basketball team, 
not daring to mar the sheen of that 
gleaming floor, playing in pedicured, 
barefoot splendor, with carefully cul- 
tivated corns. We are no longer the 
"Bulldogs": we are now the "Hairy- 
Bares". Our coach is now known as 
'Teddy Bare". 

While removing his shoes before 
entering, each of you should soulfuUy 

Blessings on thee, little student. 
Bare-foot boys we pass through this 

We wish that they had used cement 
Instead of this darn wooden floor. 

Fraternally Youn. 

Frank O. Pin von 


Your paper is really great. The best 
I have ever seen and one N.A.C. can 
be particulary proud of. Keep up 
the good work. 

I hate to see the N.A.C. name 
changed. Hope the words "National" 
and/or "Agricultural" can be includ- 
ed in the new name. 

Much success in the future with 
the "Furrow".

Government Loans for Students 

The United States Office of Educa- 
tion is now offering loans to selected 
colleges under the new federal loan 
program. The college contributes $100, 
the government gives $900 for every 
$1000 loan. 

Top priority will be given to su- 
perior students in education (ele- 
mentary or secondary) and to top- 
ranking students preparing themselves 
in science, mathematics, engineering 
or a modern foreign language. Only 
needy students will get the attractive 
new loans and the Office of Education 

estimates the average loan will be for 
$600 a year, although it may be for as 
little as is needed or for a maximum 
of $1000. 

No payments are made on the loan 
until one year after the student leaves 
college. Ten years are allowed for 
repayment with interest set at the rate 
of three per cent. Death or total dis- 
ability cancels the obligation. 

The state colleges lue now accept- 
ing apphcation for the loans. 


the Furrow on a regular schedule of 
fortnightly publications, which the 
present editors, beginning with issue 
No. 4, have endeavored (not wholly 
successfully) to maintain. 

Mailing of the first issue to all 
alumni resulted in an appropriation of 
$200 by our Alumni Association for 
future mailings, and this enterprise 
has been enthusiastically backed by 
the college administration. 

To all who have worked with us 
in an undertaking which we believe 
has great possibilities for progress 
here at N.A.C. we extend a hearty 
"Thank you"! And again we take off 
the editorial hat to Henry Rose. 


A football player likes game films, 
trips away from home, practice ses- 
sions without pads, hot showers, long 
runs, whirlpool baths, recovered fum- 
bles, points after touchdowns and the 
quiet satisfaction which comes from 
being part of a perfectly executed 
play. He is not much for wind sprints, 
sitting on the bench, rainy days, after- 
game compliments, ankle wraps, 
scouting reports or calisthenics. 

No one else looks forward so much 
to September or so little to December. 
Nobody gets so much pleasure out of 
knocking down, hauling out or just 
plain bringing down the enemy. No- 
body else can cram into one mind as- 
signments for an end-nm, an off -tackle 
slant, a jump pass, a quarterback 
sneak, a dive play, punt protection, 
kickoff returns, a buck lateral, goal 
line stands or a spinner cycle designed 
to result in a touchdown every time it 
is tried. 

A football player is a wonderful 
creature— you can criticize him, but 
you can't discourage him. You can de- 
feat his team, but you can't make him 
quit. You ean get him out of a game, 
but you can't get him out of football. 
Might as well admit it— be you alum- 
nus, coach or fan— he is your personal 
representative on the field, your sym- 
bol of fair and hard play. He may not 
be an Ail-American, but he is an ex- 
ample of the American way. He is 
judged, not for his race, not for his 
religion, not for his social standing, 
not for his finances, but for the demo- 
cratic yardstick of how well he blocks, 
tackles, and sacrifices individual glory 
for the over-all success of his team. 

He is a hard-working, untiring, 
determined kid doing the very best he 
can for his school or college. And 
when you come out of a stadium, 
growling and feeling upset that your

Rabbi Speaks at NAC 

by Jerry Mulnick 

At an assembly held in Segal Hall 
on the afternoon of April I5th, the 
National Agricultural College had the 
honor of having as guest speaker 
Rabbi Nathan Bark, of the congrega- 
tion of Temple Judea in Philadelphia, 

Dr. Bark elaborated on the con- 
troversial question "does scientific 
knowledge make it difficult to accept 
religious faith?" He brought out the 
fundamental differences between 
science and religion, i.e. science ex- 
plores, theorizes, and classifies, where- 
as religion essentially evaluates and 
appraises, the phenomena and occur- 
rences happening since time im- 
memorial. Also mentioned in the 
young rabbi's discussion was the ef- 
fect upon religion of Darwin's theory 
of evolution and vice versa. 

Dr. Bark's discussion was indeed 
most stimulating. 

Rabbi Bark received his Ph.D. at 
Johns Hopkins Univ. in 1950, und is 
a graduate of the Hebrew Union Col- 

The students and faculty oi NAC 
wish to thank Rabbi Bark for pre- 
senting this discussion in an interest- 
ing and stimulating manner.

Dairy Team Best Yet 

by Walt Whitman 

The National Agricultural College 
has good reasons to be proud of its 
dairy judging team this year. On 
September 21 the team competed at 
the Eastern States Intercollegiate 
Dairy Judging Contest at Springfield, 
Mass. As a result the team proved to 
be the best N.A.C. has ever produced 
for this event. 

This year's team was coached, on 
the trip, by Doctor Webster. The 
judges were: Jim Hoover, Richard 
Sheidy, Chuck Klein, and alternate 
Jack Kuyper. 

N.A.C. was one of twelve colleges 
and universities participating in tnis 
contest. Through the combined efforts 
of our team members N.A.C. placed a 
fabulous sixth place. The placings, in 
order, were as follows: 

Maryland, V. P. I., Cornell, Ohio 
State, Connecticut, N.A.C, Vermont, 
Rutgers, Penn State, West Virginia, 
New Hampshire, Rhode Island. 

N.A.C. breed placings were: 







Brown Swiss 




In individual placings Richard 
Sheidy placed first on the N.A.C. team 
and eleventh in the contest. Last year 
Dave Ainsworth placed 6th in the con- 
test. I understand that Dean Larsson 
placed second in the contest when he 
was a member of the team. His record 
will be a hard one to beat. 

On October 2nd the Dairy Judging 
Team left for Waterloo, Iowa, where 
thev were entered in the National 
Intercolegiate Dairy Judging Compe- 
tition. The coverage of this trip will be 
in the next issue of the Furrow, 


Dean Meyer reports Ahe enrollment 
figures as of Sept. 21, 1959 as follows: 
forty-nine seniors, seventy juniors, 
ninety-five sophomores and one hun- 
dred and thirty-one freshmen and 
transfer students. 

The total student enrollment is 
three hundred and forty-five. 

The breakdown of home state of 
freshmen and transfers is: Pennsyl- 
vania, 72; New Jersey, 40; New York, 
9; Connecticut 2, and Massachusetts, 
Ohio, Virginia and Delaware, one 
each. There are four foreign students, 
two each from Iran and Venezuela. 

These figures include four all time 
highs: the greatest total number in 
the student body, the largest freshman 
and sophomore classes, and the great- 
est number of freshmen from Penn- 

Three hundred and three students 
are housed on campus including the 
Alumni House and Lasker Hall On 
this subject it is good to see the two 
additional dormitories going up be- 
hind Ulman Hall. These two-story 
buildings will hold a total of one hun- 
dred and thirty students and are 
scheduled for completion at the end 
of this academic year. This will mean 
that next year we can ease up on pres- 
ent facilities and still have room for 
a further increase in enrollment. 

The new majors in Chemistry and 
Biology are under way with a total of 
sixteen students in the freshman and 
sophomore classes. 

Additional facilities include a Quali- 
tative Chemistry Laboratory in the 
former forge room. 

A total of ten new faculty members 
have been engaged including six full 

Animal Husbandry Judging 
Team at Springfield, Mass. 

For the eighth time since 1950 our 
Animal Husbandry Dept. entered a 
judging team at the Eastern States 
Exposition this Fall. Even though 
N.A.C. did not take top honors we 
gave good stiff competition that put 
us in fifth place. This placing was 
based on our scores in the Beef, Sheep, 
and Swine classes. If our score in the 
horse class had been considered wc 
would have placed fourth. 

Our competitors at the Inlercckl- 
legiate contests were: 

University of Ohio 
University of Connecticut 
University of New Hampshire 
University of Maryland

In the past and most likely in the 
future many long harangues criti- 
cizing the student body heavily for its 
manifold failures and shortcomings 
will be a subject of discourse among 
many. Very little praise is given for 
what has been accomplished and of 
course, we all felt very noble for our 
conscientiousness in stopping to tell 
our neighbor his faults. 

Many times The Furrow as well as 
other campus organizations has been 
deluged, inundated, literally swept oflF 
our trim size eights, by floods of the 
most highly colored (and in some 
cases ratner vitriolic) language, anent 
our mental faculties. We were sur- 
prised, flattered and discouraged. All 
of this, however, whetted our appetite, 
and more meditation is being given to 
the subject. 

The results of our meditations has 
been that we have assumed a broad 
attitude of mind. We have come to the 
conclusion that every year, with the 
going of the Seniors, and the coming 
of the Freshmen, the Student Body 
takes a deep breath and makes a new 
start. We sincerely believe that every 
year we mean to do better. The fault 
then is not with the "intention". Clear- 
ly it is the "capability" of the Student 
Body that tends to make a year bril- 
liant or otherwise. We believe that 
every student wants to do his best to 
promote the name of his Alma Mater; 

Ediforial Comments 

and does so— to the best of his ability. 
Thus we see why all Student Bodies 
are not the same; why we sometimes 
climb to the highest pinnacles of many 
glories at other times remain in the 
shadowy valleys; why at times we are 
a pride and "joy forever" to the Fac- 
ulty, and why we are not. 

For a better mental attitude it is 
good to remember that, "He that wres- 
tles with us strengthens our skill. Our 
antagonist is our helper." 

Again this year the Editors would 
like to encourage any comments, criti- 
cisms and the like by our readers. We 
believe this is a good means of bring- 
ing your feelings on matters pertain- 
ing to past or future events or situations 
to all the readers of the publication. 

This invitation is also extended to 
the colleges to which we exchange The 

All correspondence may be addres- 
sed to Editor, The Furrow, Box 83, 
National Agricultural College, Doyles- 
town, Penna. 

We are sorry to hear of Prof. Arthur 
Brown's hospitalization. On Septem- 
ber 9 Prof. Brown complained of severe 
chest pains. He was taken to the Doy- 
lestown Emergency Hospital and put 
under the care ot Dr. Victor Fred- 
rickson. Two days after his arrival at 
the hospital he suffiered a heart at- 
tack. Prof. Brown remained in the 
hospital for a thiree week period leaving 
the 30th of September. 

We are glad to hear he is now home 
and resting comfortably. The admin- 
istration, faculty and students are 
looking forward to his speedy return. 

The editors of the N.A.C. Furrow 
and student body wish to welcome a 
new and pretty face to the campus: a 
teaching fellow of German language 
and the wife of Dr. Prundeanu, head 
of the Agronomy Department. 

Mrs. Prundeanu is a graduate of 
Heidelberg University, Germany 1950. 
She taught at Cornell University for 
three years (1952-55), and Bucks 
County high night school last year. 

Frau Prundeanu was born in Hom- 
berg, Rhineland province, close 
to Dusseldorf. Came to the United 
States July 4, 1952 by way of Canada. 
She was married on December 23, 
1951 in Montreal, Canada, became an 
American citizen in 1957, and is now 
the mother of a four-year-old boy. 

Mrs. Prundeanu lived in Germany 
most of her life. During the war most 
of the surroundings were bombed near 
her home. Luckily she was able to 
survive the war, and has travelled 
throughout most of the countries in 
middle Europe. 

I'm sure the students taking German 
this semester will agree that Mrs. 
Prundeanu, with her musical way of 
speaking, helps you to learn without 
being pushed. 

Lots of wishes and the best of luck.

He asked her on the back porch, 
On a moonlit starry night, 
Alas, he was excited, 
And did not get it right; 
"You cannot live without, I 
And each other must us have we 
So are you tell I will me 
If us marry won't she? 

The pcx)r girl was dumb founded. 
And knew not what to say, 

But opened up her mouth 
And poured forth words this way. 

"Oh, dear boy, how me love us 

And me too love I we. 
But you we I are never 

Is able can us marry." 

"Me are a husband has got, 

Him is I much do loves, 
Alas, I is not are you have I, 

Nor care it ever was.

Aggies Down Lincoln, 22-7 

After an opening game defeat the 
Aggies came back with a thrilHng 
team victory to down Lincoln for their 
first victory of the young season. 

Our defensive Hne played a terrific 
game, holding the visitors to only 
twenty yards on the ground and 
four first downs. John Holm, Herb 
Harris, Gene Schultz, and Jim Hoover 
were some of the players who did an 
outstanding job on defense. 

The Aggies kicked oflF. After Lin- 
coln failed to get anywhere on their 
four downs, they punted. We ran back 
the punt to Lincoln's twenty-three 
yard line. Although, after Lincoln re- 
gained the ball, Hoover and Schultz 
caught the Lincoln halfback behind 
the goal line for a safety. 

Early in the second period the Ag- 
gies were held for the second time by

yard lin^ On this try though, after 
Lincoln regained the ball. Hoover and 
Schultz caught the Lincoln halfback 
behind the goal line for a safety. 

A few minutes later after a driving 
forty -eight yards in eight plays, Frantz 
went over, from the one and again 
McGuigan converted to make the 
score 16-0 at the halftime. Ron Stein, 
Brodie Crawford and Frantz spear- 
headed the next drive only to lose the 
ball on the Lincoln three yard line. 

Pat Milfried intercepted a Lincoln 
pass early in the fourth period putting 
the ball on the visitors twenty-seven 
yard line. The Aggies lost possession 
of the ball on the Lincoln four yard 

Lincoln tried to punt over but was 
rushed by the Aggie line and the ball 
rolled on their own two yard line. 
Crawford went over for the touch- 
down. McGuigan's kick was wide. 

The Lincoln team scored after 
Coach Chiodi put in the Aggie reserve.

by Gary Stapleton 

The Furrow sports staff wants to 
welcome all of our old readers back 
and to wish the class of 1963 a lot of 
luck in theiF four years at N.A.C. The 
purpose of our sports articles is to 
keep you up-to-date on all the sports 
activities at N.A.C. 

If you happen to watch our team at 
practice on any afternoon, you will 
notice that there are four newcomers 
out on the field, not including the 
players. These are the four coaches of 
our team, replacing Pete Pihos and 
Ted Gehlman. These include Head 
Coach Robert D. Chiodi, who comes 
from the University of Maryland; the 
assistant coaches are Joseph Fulcoly, 
backfield coach; Steven Ferdo, line 
coach; and Richard Carney, end coach, 
from Lehigh University. 

This year's team which is a rela- 
tively young team, made up primarily 
of Sophomores and Juniors, has a lot 
of potential even though we lost our 
first game to Montclair State Teach- 
ers College by the score of 10-7. 

Our team this year is led by Cap- 
tain Emory Markovic, and seniors Ed 
Stickel, Frank Radican and Whitey 

Juniors who are in the starting 
lineup are Pat Mihlfried, Gene Schultz, 
John Holm, Jim Hoover, and Wheeler 
Aman. Sophomores are McGuigan, 
Harris and Frantz. The Freshmen are 
Barnett, Crawford, and Sheets. 

We want to wish the team a lot of 
success during the coming season. The 
best way to show our team that we 
are backing them is to go out to the 
games and cheer them on to victory.

highest and Dave Kantner was third. 

In the top ten individual scores 
Lorenzo Fonseca placed sixth and Joe 
Exley placed eight.

N.A.C. at Trenton State Fair 

Several Aggie Animal Husbandry 
students helped represent N.A.C. at 
the Trenton State Fair this Fall by 
caring for, and showing, some of our 
livestock. The boys who took part 
were: seniors Joe Exley and Dave 
Kantner; and juniors Al Dablonki, Pat 
Milhfried, and Ray Piotrowiz. Mr. 
Holloran was also present. 

In the hog contest N.A.C. entered 
six light market barrows. They placed 
3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th, and 9th in their 
particular class. 

When these hogs were sold, four of 
them were classed as Top Grade. As a 
result these hogs brought sixteen dol- 
lars a hundred which is several dollars 
above market price. The other two 
hogs brought fifteen dollars and fifty 
cents a hundred which is also above 

N.A.C. also entered two two-year- 
old an^us heifers and one senior bull 
calf. The heifers placed 3rd and 6th, 
and the bull calf placed 5th. 

Former Aggie Bart Glass, class of 
1959, did very well in representing 
Hasty Hill Farms. He captured the 
Grand Champion Bull and Reserve 
Grand Champion Heifer prizes.

held at Millersville State Teachers 
College, September 11 and 12. 

Mr. Forbes has been re-appointed 
to the State Forest Commission of 
Pennsylvania by Governor David L. 
Lawrence. The appointment, for a 
four-year term, had the approval of 
the Pennsylvania Senate. The 5-man 
commission of which the Secretary of 
Forests and Waters is ex-officio chair-

and Switzerland. Their Alpine travels 
took them over many famous passes, 
including Passo dello Stelvio, the high-

College Weekend 

N.A.C. was swinging the weekend 
of November 23. Friday night before 
Homecoming Day, the seniors and 
sophomores were busy decorating the 
gym for the Homecoming Dance 
which was held Saturday night. 

The members of the different clubs 
were putting the finishing touches on 
their exhibits which would be judged 
on Saturday. 

Saturday was dark, bleak and rain- 
ing, which threatened to ruin the plans 
which were set for the whole day. 
There was a hope in every Aggie's 
heart that the day would clear up. 
Everyone would have been disap- 
pointed if the game with Kutztown 
would have been postponed. 

The afternoon started a little bright- 
er than the morning. The sun had man- 
aged to break through the clouds and 
it stayed that way most of the after- 

Before the start of the game the 
exhibits were judged and the winners 
received prizes. The Chemistry and 
Biology Club won first prize, Dairy 
Club was runner-up, and the Hort 
Club received third prize. 

The game started under the obser- 

•vation of a large number of Alumni 

and students. Our team lost by a 7-6 

score but we were proud of them for 

their fine show of sportsmanship. 

When the game was over there was 
a meeting of the Alumni after which 
a buffet supper was served to them in 
Lasker Hall. 

Saturday evening a sizable crowd 
of Alumni and students danced to the 
popular music of Bill Carter and his 
band. The dance was held in the new 
gym. Dicing the intermission they 
were entertained by Ron Zimmer, who 
played a few selections on the marim-

istry Clubs presented this billboard wel- 
come at Homeconung Day to greet all 
Alumni. It was placed well, at the N.A.C. 
main entrance, and won first prise. 


Through the suggestion of the 
Alumni, the Football Banquet will be 
held at an off-campus location. Mr. 
Ned A. Linta, Chairman of the Col- 
lege Department of Physical Educa- 
tion, Health, and Intercollegiate Ath- 
letics, has made arrangements for the 
event at the Warrington Country Club 
on Route 611, Warrington, Pennsyl- 
vania, on Tuesday, November 24, at 
7:00 P.M. 

In order that this be a highly suc- 
cessful banquet, we are appealing to 
the Alumni for their whole-hearted 
support. We hope to have this event 
become a tradition at N.A.C. and we 
can think of no better way of insuring 
this than by your interest and support. 

The cost is six dollars ($6.00). These 
moneys collected will be used to cover 
the cost of dinners for the players, 
coaching staff, and special guests such 
as high school coaches, sports editors, 
and special guest speakers. We would 
appreciate for Alumni and all parties 
wishing to attend to send their reser- 
vations in before November 20, 1959. 

N.A.C. at the King Ranch 

On October 14, Dr. Pelle and a 
group of eighty-three Aggies, repre- 
senting the Animal Husbandry Club, 
visited the Buck and Doe Run Valley 
Farms Co. near Unionville, Penna. 
This ranch is owned by the famed 
King Ranch (approximately 1,000,000 
square acres ) in Texas. The Buck and 
Doe, itself, consists of approximately 
12,000 acres. 

The necessary arrangements for the 
trip were made by Senior's Joe Exley, 
our Animal Husbandry Club presi- 
dent, and Sam Wilson, whose fatrier is 
general manager of Buck and Doe. 
Mr. Miller kindly arranged a breakfast 
for the group which was served at 
6:00 o'clock. 

They left the school at 6:30 and ar- 
rived at Bucks and Doe around 8:45, 
where they were met by Mr. Wilson 
"down at the ole corral." For a short 
time, they watched the hired help 
separate some stock. The Buck and 
Doe has about 5,000 head of cattle, all 
of which are Santa Gertrudis (three- 
eighths Brahman and five-eighths 
Shorthorn ) . 

From the stock pens the group went 
to see Buck and Doe's pelleting opera- 
tion which proved very interesting. At 
this point they were joined by Albert 
O. Rhoad, top Geneticist at the King 
Ranch. Mr. Rhoad and Mr. Wilson 
were very generous in giving informa- 
tion and answering questions in rela- 
tion to Buck and Doe operations and 
management. It was interesting to dis- 
cover that Mr. Rhoad and Robert J. 
Kleberg, Jr., president and general 
manager of King Ranch, are both men- 
tioned in the book "Modern Breeds of 
Livestock" which is used by Sopho- 
more Animal Husbandry majors here 
at N.A.C.

highlights of Buck and Doe, three

All Asghar Alemi and Dariush Faz- 
lollahi are the names of the students 
from Iran that began their studies in 
N.A.C. this fall, entering as freshmen. 

Ali came to this country in Febru- 
ary of this year as a visitor, and after 
he saw the educational opportunities 
that this country offers he decided to 
stay in America to acquire a college 

Ali was working for the government 
before leaving his country as Chief of 
the Exchange Office in the Depart- 
ment of Accounting in the Adminis- 
tration of Fine Arts. His family owns 
several farms in the desert region and 
thanks to ingenious means they aie 
able to irrigate land and raise some 
crops like cotton, wheat, beans, etc.; 
they also raise pistachio, which is a 
crep well adapted to the dry lands of 

Ali has decided to major in agron- 
omy and is expecting to return to his 
country after graduating to practice 
his knowledge. 

Ali has been married for 5 years; 
his wife and his three-year-old daugh- 
ter are now in Iran but he hopes to 
bring them here soon. 

Ali is always eager to answer ques- 
tions about his country and their cus- 
toms; he is planning on giving talks 
about agricultural practices, art, cul- 
ture and other subjects about Iran. 

Dariush was born in Teheran 18 
years ago; he came to the United 
States to finsh his high school studies 
in the West Nottingham Academy of 
Colora, Maryland. 

Faz, as he is familiarly called, has a 
city background, although his family 
owns a large farm of 10 square miles; 
his purpose of coming to America was 
to undertake studies in agricultural 
engineering; he wants to study agron- 
omy here at NAC, for he sees that he 
will be able to make great improve- 
ments on his farm witn this kind of 

Faz explains that the farms in his 
country are very large because of the 
very dry climate prevailing there; the 
livestock that consists mainly of sheep 
is grazed by Nomadic tribes; another 
curious fact about their methods of 
farming is that farms are operated by 
tenants and pay the landlords 20? of 
the crops raised. Faz wants to return 
home and transfonn his farm into a 
modern one and he is sure that he will 
have success in bringing this about. 


Agronomy Club Visits 
G>rnell University 

On the weekend of October 30 and 
31, Dr. Priindeau and 13 members of 
the Agronomy Club spent a very in- 
teresting and informative two days on 
the Cornell University campus. 

Friday afternoon we were intro- 
duced to Dr. Zwerman who was our 
guide. He took us to the Aurora Farm 
where we learned of the work being 
done with out major crops in relation 
to various sprays that will control 
weeds and increase the yields. Foiu 
large plots had been replicated and 
randamized to keep conditions as near 
to real and average as possible in re- 
lation to soil and environmental con- 
ditions. We also viewed intricate ap- 
paratus used for measuring wind ve- 
locity, temperature at different heights 
above the ground, radiation, etc. We 
learned how samples of each crop are 
taken, dried, and analyized for water 
percentage and nutrient value. 

We saw many plots and crops in 
experimentation to show cover drain- 
age by tile, mechanical practices, fer- 
tilizer recommendations in various 
combinations and how they affect the 
crop and soil. 

On Saturday a.m. we visited the 
soils lab for a short talk with Dr. 
Lathwell and learned of his work and 

Joe Shinn, an N.A.C. Agronomy 
Alumnus, and now attending Cornell 
for his Masters degree, took us on our 
last tour, to a site which had apparatus 
and computers to calculate the radia- 
tion from the sun and soil. This data 
gives an idea of how much heat is 
lost to the air. There were other instru- 
ments used to detect wind velocity, 
temperature at certain levels plus a 
device for determining temperatures 
below the surface at certain levels. 

This wound up a very worthwhile 
trip which helped us gain quite a bit 
of new knowledge to supplement our 


Anyone See Napoleon? 

When the N.A.C. Dairy Judging 
Team arrived at Waterloo ( Iowa, that 
is) on Friday, October 2, Napoleon 
wasn't there to greet them. However, 
despite this blow to their morale, our 
boys proceeded to the National Dairy 
Cattle Congress where they were to 
participate in the National Intercol- 
legiate Dairy Judging Contest. 

On the team were: Juniors Richard 
Sheidy, Chuck Klein, and Jim Hoover. 
Sophomore Jack Kuyper was an alter- 
nate. Chet Raught and Dr. Webster 
were the accompanying coaches.

Citizenship Probation 

Fifty-seven members of the sopho- 
more class who admitted participation 
in the hazing, or preparation for haz- 
ing, of freshmen on the night of Octo- 
ber 6 and 7, have been put on Citizen- 
ship Probation for the remainder of 
the current semester. This is the most 
drastic action which the College has 
yet taken to enforce the ban against 
hazing, in all forms, adopted by the 
Trustees two years ago. The imme- 
diate events leading up to it are as 

The traditional rope-pull between 
the freshmen and sophomores was 
scheduled for October 7. Because the 
small ravine where this contest is held 
was practically dry, the president of 
the Varsity Club, in charge of the 
rope-pull, was given permission to al- 
low a limited amount of water from 
our new 50,000 gallon tank to flow 
into the ravine and create a muddy 
barrier between the teams. The water 
was then turned off. After dark, how- 
ever, on October 6 sophomore enthusi- 
asts again turned on the water. Other 
members of 1962 "borrowed" a pbw 
and tractor from the College, and with 
them endeavored to ruin the footing 
on the freshman side of the ravine. 
Erosion will start on the steep slope, 
and the plow will require expensive 

Bent on emulating the example of 
the 1961 hazers who a year ago had 
invaded the freshman dormitory and 
kept up all night the members of the 
1962's rope-pull team, many sopho- 
mores defied their class president and 
entered the several dormitories early 
in the morning of October 7. One 
dormitory counselor kept the would- 
be hazers out of the area under his 
jurisdiction, but the others were not 
so successful. 

Before the night was out the doors 
of two dormitory rooms had been 
kicked in, and other vandalism in- 
dulged in. That morning Dean Meyer 
notified the classes concerned that the 
rope-pull was cancelled. 

The Faculty Committee on Disci- 
pline met later in the day, and unani- 
mously approved the Dean's proposal 
to require the student authorities— the 
officers of the sophomore class, and if 
necessary those of the Student Coun- 
cil, as well as the dormitory counselors 
—to furnish him with a list of the of- 
fending sophomores. At a meeting on 
October 8 sophomore president Frantz 
laid before his classmates the Dean's 
demand, and warned them that all

It looked as though the Aggies were 
in for another heartbreaking game as 
Gallaudet scored a TD in the opening 
minutes with their McFadden around 
our right end for 42 yards. 

Near the end of the first quarter 
Bob Frantz went over from the one 
yard hne. McGuigan converted for the 
poitn after the TD. Sparked in the 3rd 
quarter by Brodie Crawford and 
Wheeler Aman the Aggies scored their 
final two touchdowns. Crawford went 
over from the four yard line. Aman 
recovered a blocked punt in the Gal- 
laudet end zone. 

Aggies met Kings College under the 
lights November 7 for their second 
away game.

We have been asked, who is the 
oldest playn on the football team? To 
keep all oi;« readers informed we 
checked on this and decided to write 
an article. 

This player has reached the age 
when a lot of men are sitting back in 

their rocking chair, but at 27, just like 
the old sun, he keeps rolling along, 
playing first string guard. He was first 
string in his sophomore year. 

Born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, 
he attended the Johnstown Catholic 
High School where he played both 
baseball and football. He was a catch- 
er on the varsity team there for two 
years and was a guard on the football 
team for three years. 

After graduating from high school 
our "Big Daddy" went to work in the 
steel mills. After four years of this he 
received an invitation from Uncle Sam 
to join the armv. He reached the rank 
of corporal in the army. While serving 
his country from January 1953 to just 
before Christmas 1954 our old man 
served in Germany, playing football 
one year. The army food must have 
agreed with him, which can be at- 
tested by his chubby little tummy. 

After leaving the army we can find 
our hero back again in the steel mills. 
He stayed here until 1957. When he 
thought to himself, where am I going 
to get without further education. So 
fortunately for the National Aggies we 
find the "Big Daddy" starting his 
freshman year in September of 1957. 
He is attending college on the GI bill 
and the work payment plan. 

In the summer between his Sopho- 
more and Junior year we hear wed- 
ding bings, and our old man marries 
Miss Nancy Keim. 

By now most of you have guesed 
who we have been describing, but in 
case you want another clue, he is a 
Junior, majoring in Horticulture. 

Our old man is none other than 
Gene "Big Daddy" Schultz. 


N.A.C. Mascot 

Dear Dr. Pelle: 

We, the members of the Student 
Council, as representatives of the Stu- 
dent Body of the National Agricultural 
College, wish to extend to you our 
thanks and appreciation for your time, 
patience, and excellent choice in pro- 
curing the Dorset Ram to be used as 
the College Mascot. 

Thanking you again on behalf of

The College Library 

The college library is open this year 
every day— from nine in the morning 
until five, and six-thirtv until nine in 
the evening, Monday tnrough Friday. 
On Saturday the library is open nine 
until eleven in the morning. On Sun- 
day evening from six until nine o'clock. 

On duty during the day of Mrs. 
Blood and Mrs. Van Ingen. Mr. Blood 
is on duty during the evenings and 
weekends. Mrs. Trelawny assists in 
case of need; and the student assist- 
ants will be Frank Ratican on Tuesday 
afternoon and James Koenig on Friday 
afternoon. Mrs Coltman, who is taking 
her Master's at Drexel School of Li- 
brary Science, manages to give one 
day a week to the National Agricul- 
tural Library— Wednesday. 

Of the new books received there are 
valuable reference books: the 1959 
Encyclopedia Brittanica, Statesman's 
Yearbook, and Larousse Mythology. 
There is a representative number of 
books for leisure and cultural reading 
as well as useful and up-to-date books 
for class work, adding to the large and 
interesting ones already on the shelves. 

In a study by a national group of 
educators, it was found that one of the 
principal causes of failure in acadariic 
work was the lack of knowledge and 
inability to use college library facili- 
ties. So this year the staff of the Li- 
brary of this college is giving talks to 
all freshmen about what the library 
has to offer in the way of pamphlets, 
periodicals and books which can make 
work on research papers and debates 
and class assignments with collateral 
reading, quicker and easier. 

It has come to the attention of the 
FuRBOW that a copy of "How to Read 
Better and Faster by Norman Lewis, 
can be obtained in the library. This 
book is highly recommended for fresh- 
men and other students who feel they 
are lacking in some of the funda- 
mentals of reading techniques. 

The book has helped other students 
in other schools and should be a help- 
ful addition to our library. 


A revision in placings was received 
from authorities of the Eastern States 
Exposition in relation to the judging 
trip of September 21. 

N.A.C. placed second in the Jersey 
class instead of the Ayrshire class. Jim 
Hoover, placed second, one point be- 
hind the top individual. Chuck Klein 
was ninth in the breeds. 

This revision had no effect on the 
team's original overall standing.

Administration News 


Over 125 Alumni members returned 
on October 24 to see a very exciting 
game between the Aggies and Kutz- 
town. After a heartbreaking game, 
which the Aggies lost by one point 7-6, 
they retired for a general meeting in 
Segal Hall Auditorium, where Presi- 
dent Work outlined the future devel- 
opment plans of the college. High- 
lights of his talk were: 

The college is embarking on both 
an Annual Giving Campaign and capi- 
tal investment drive of $1,926,000. Of 
this sum, $1,018,000 must be realized 
within two years and the remaining 
$908,000 by 1965. The present expan- 
sion needs are: 

( 1 ) Two wings attached to the library, 

(2) Student Center building, $425,000 

(3) Three dormitories and also three 
faculty houses. $600,000 

( 4 ) Ulman Hall, Faculty House, Lask- 
er Hall, and Allman Hall are ex- 
pected to be modernized at a cost 
of $136,000 

( 5 ) Additional development projects 
are: a farm machinery building, 
maintenance shop and store room 
building, sewage disposal plant, 
recreation field, parking lot, out- 
door amphitheater, addition to 
gym, and blacktop roads and 
walks to cost $908,000. 

Mr. Harold Greenspun explained 
how the fund raising is organized. 
More detailed literature will be sent to 
all Alumni. 

After a delicious buflFet style supper 
in Lasker Hall, many Alumni mem- 
bers attended a dance in the gym. 
They were entertained by Bill Carter's 
Orchestra. Among the highlights of 
the evening were marimba solos 
played by Ronald Zimmer and a 
Peresian dance performed by Ali 
Alemi, a freshman who is a foreign 
student from Iran. 

Dean Meyer and Mr. Larsson re- 
cently represented the National Agri- 
cultural College at the Eleventh An- 
nual School and College Conference 
at Cedar Crest College, Allentown, 
Pennsylvania. High school guidance 
counselors and college admissions offi- 
cers from Peimsylvania, New Jersey 
and New York attended this confer- 
ence. The theme of the conference 
was "Nonacademic Factors in Learn- 
ing." The panel members consisted of 
Dean H. Hudson, Randolph-Macon 
Woman's College; Dr. M. Burns, Fox 
Lane High School; Mr. R. Palaia, Penn 
Charter School, and Dean C. Cole, Jr., 
Lafayette College.

1944-The Class of 1944 had almost 
perfect attendance at their reunion 
held on campus July 4-5, 1959. Tobi 
Goldoftas and Dave Goodman or- 
ganized the meeting and everyone was 
very happy to see their classmates and 

1950-Charles Wollins, 1430 Tu- 
lane Ave., New Orleans, Louisiana. 
The State of Florida has awarded Mr. 
Wollins a scholarship to study for his 
Masters degree in Public Health at the 
Tulane School of Medicine, New Or- 
leans, Louisiana. Charles has worked 
previously in the public health depart- 
ment in Miami, Florida, for several 
years and we know he will do well in 
his new endeavor. 

Campus Quickies 

Various and sundry odors were de- 
tected 'round about campus the other 
dav, what with shortages of hot and 
cold water respectively. In view, how- 
ever, of the recently-constructed di- 
version-ditch behind Segal Hall, it 
wuold seem to this correspondent that 
upper-classmen will have more water 
this winter than they bargained f or . . . 

No attentive student can have mised 
the frantic attack upon the leaves 
which annually carpet our campus in 
red and gold. While this innocuous 
beauty and potential mulch is being 
snatched from sight, the mounds of 
ginko-fruit mount higher, filling the 
air with smells too delightful to be 
described here. Perhaps an experiment 
in natural seeding is underway, but in 
the opinion of many, this is oringing 
coals to Newcastle . . . 

The Furrow, having been a trifle 
tardy, may be going out on a limb in 
asking whether the student body may 
expect to see an issue of The Gleaner 
some time before Christmas. The War. 
ren-Lipton coalition is seen burning 

the midnight oil, but as yet the end- 
product of this seeming diligence ap- 
pears to be merely an enviable accum- 
ulation of cigarette butts . . . 

Things have come to a pretty pass 
when some light-fingered rascal with 
what must have been a strong back 
can make off with a whole P. A. system. 
The fair-haired Mr. Stapelton has all 
our sympathy at noon chow, when he 
makes a gallant effort at communica- 
tion. Bellowing is a strain, 'tis true, but 
every cloud has a silver lining. It does 
wonders for the chest expansion. 

Next week it seems that hollow eyes 
and cigarette-cough will be the order 
of the day. The great college institu- 
tion, the Mid-Term Exam will be upon 
us again. (And probably upon our 
children unto the nth generation . . . ) 
One asks oneself, "Is this mental mis- 
ery necessary?" After all, look at Ox- 
ford. There, it's a case of tea and 
terminal trials. Here, it's coffee and 
constant confusion. That's what we 
get for winning a war . . .

Thank You 

I would like to express my deepest 
appreciation to the many members of 
the Faculty, Administration, Student 
Body, and Alumni who remembered 
me during my recent illness. I also 
wish to thank those on the Faculty 
who have so willnigly assumed the 
burden of some of my work, particu- 
larly Mr. Raught, Dr. Pelle and Dr. 
Webster. I am especially grateful to 
President Work and Dr. Turner who 
have been more than kind in their con- 
cern that I take as much time as 
needed to recuperate. 

Please accept my sincerest wishes 
for a banner journalistic year.

taken to enforce the ban against

The traditional rope-pull between 
ie freshmen and sophomores was 
iheduled for October 7. Because the 
nail ravine where this contest is held 
as practically dry, the president of 
|e Varsity Club, in charge of the 
^e-puU, was given permission to al- 
y a limited amount of water from 
Ir new 50,000 gallon tank to flow 
ito the ravine and create a muddy 
arrier between the teams. The water

Bent on emulating the example of 
le 1961 hazers who a year ago had 
ivaded the freshman dormitory and 
ept up all night the members of the 
k}2's rope-pull team, many sopho- 
lores defied their class president and 
itered the several dormitories early 
I the morning of October 7. One 
onnitory counselor kept the would- 
e hazers out of the area under his 
irisdiction, but the others were not

Before the night was out the doors 
two dormitory rooms had been 
icked in, and other vandahsm in- 
ulged in. That morning Dean Meyer

groups were formed, and descended 
"en masse" on the nearest diners and 
restaurants to have lunch. After lunch 
they .went to the New Bulletin Center 
which is a division of the Pennsylvania 
University Veterinarian School. This 
Center is only a short distance from 
Buck and Doe. 

The New Bulletin Center specializes 
in teaching, research, and Veterinarian 
service. In relation to research their 
biggest concern is with dairy cattle. 
They are doing some work with goats, 
sheep, and horses. They do no work 
with dogs and cats. They have two 
clinics in Philadelphia which take care 
of research on small domestic animals. 

In relation to teaching, the New 
Bulletin Center takes in 20 or 30 senior 
Veterinarian students every year. In 
their final year Veterinarian students 
have no classes as we know them. In- 
stead, they spend the year engaged in 
original research and practical experi- 

Four groups were formed this time 
and members of the staff took them on 
a tour of the Center. They were given 
a general idea of the work that is 
going on at the Center and of the im- 
provements that are expected in the 
near future. One of the interesting 
features of the tour was a (X)lt owned 
by President Eisenhower. The colt 
was recuperating from a broken neck. 

The tour of the New Bulletin Center 
marked the end of the trip. 

The Animal Husbandry expresses its 
sincere thanks to the men at Buck and 
Doe, and The New Bulletin Center for 
their time and friendly cooperation. 
Even though the weather was cold 
and rainy, we are sure everyone en- 
joyed the trip and benefited from it in 
many ways.

the older couples at the dance. Aly

of the unordinary as well as educa- 
tional to the evening. 

On Sunday, October 25, the women 
guests checked out of the senior dorm 
at 10:30. The men, of course, were 
sorry to see their young women leave. 
Their presence added a touch of pleas- 
antness to the N.A.C. campus.

thank-you is extended to the chape-

this college weekend a success.

The teams were required to give rea-

The team was pitted against some 
tough competition in this contest. This 
fact, combined with tension and the 
pressure of judging and giving rea- 
sons, forced our team to last place. 
However, the boys did place ninth in 
the Brown Swiss Class, tieing Oregon. 
The top five teams in the contest were, 
respectively: Kentucky, Mississippi,

Convention at Hershey 

When the Pennsylvania Association 
of College and Universities met in the 
Hotel Hershey, in Hershey, Pennsyl- 
vania, from October 18-20, N.A.C. was 
represented by Dr. Paul R. Bowen. Dr. 
Bowen has been the college's delgate 
to the Association's annual convention 
for the past several years. 

The Association's main objective is 
to collectively organize an appeal for 
better recognition of educational needs 
by the Legislature in Harrisburg. 
Through its executive secretary, Mr. 
Reidenbaugh, the importance of high- 
er education can be brought directly 
to the law-making body. 

This year the theme of the conven- 
tion was strengthening the Association 
by inviting the State Teacher's Col- 
leges to become members; formerly 
the teacher's colleges and junior col- 
leges had met in separate conventions 
from that of the Association which in- 
cluded only schools of the arts and 

Our thanks to Dr. Bowen for his 
work with the Association; every stu- 
dent here at N.A.C. can realize the 
organization's value simply by notic- 
ing the many recent improvements 
here on our campus which might have 
been possible without the aid of ap- 
propriations from the Legislature.

Book Review 


by William J. Reilly, Ph.D. 

A rewarding and satisfying life can 
be achieved only by establishing a 
working philosophy - a philosophy 
which one not only professes but lives 
by. The author outlines the procedures 
for developing such a philosophy and 
suggests the principles that should be 

Life is divided into 3 acts (even 
Shakespeare decided on 7 ) — youth, 
middle age, and later years. These 3 
divisions are subdivided into 2 groups 
each, that is, the thoughtful and non- 
thoughtful people in each group. The 
preparation one makes for life in the 
division succeeding the one he is pres- 
ently living in, determines the success 
he will achieve in that division. One 
prepares for the next act by forecast- 
ing one's desires, usefulness to him- 
self and others, and one's place in the 

A primary rule in establishing a 
working philosophy is acknowledging 
mutual dependency and endeavoring 
to understand people. Furthermore, to 
realize that there is one earth to serve 
his fellowman. The author states, "In- 
deed, we are warned that man's prog- 
ress in development of his social in- 
telligence is so far behind his scientific 
achievements that, if he does not im- 
prove his ability to get along with his 
fellowman, he may well destroy him- 
self." Thus, he suggests impending 
scientific annihilation of mankind. 

The author also warns that man 
must climb the ladder of human rela- 
tionship (the rungs of which are the 
"laws of human environment" ) as rap- 
idly as man has climbed that of the 
laws of physical environment. The 
basis of man's attitude toward others 
should be to give and serve readily, 
and walk humbly with the knowledge 
he has acquired. With Biblical over- 
tones but with slight revision Dr. 
Reilly states that "those who serve 
shall inherit the earth." And this is 
man's primary purpose in life. 

Closing the book with a chapter on 
religion. Dr. Reilly separates reason 
and faith. He recognizes an equal and 
important role for both in a working 
philosophy. He implies that the only 
good working philosophy is one which 
includes faith as the answer to all the 
unanswerable questions. 

Presenting authoritative, and in 
many instances enlightening direc- 
tions for building a working philos- 
ophy of life, Dr. Reilly has over- 
stepped the boundaries of authority 
by applying them to international 

N.A.C. Float in Lonsdale 
Mordi Gras Parade 

Early arisers, on the morning of 
Tuesday, the 24th, might have been 
wondering where the comical but 
handsome float that was parked in front 
of the Administration building came 
from. To satisfy the curiosity of many 
of the students, it was the hard work 
of the Ornamental Horticulture Club. 

The float was entered in the Lans- 
dale Mardi Gras Parade. It had very 
stiff competition from many clubs 
from different towns. Some of these 
groups had better facilities and more 
money to spend on their floats, but 
due to the hard work of the Orna- 
mental Florticiiltiire Club, they reaped 
a rich reward: the float won third prize 
which was twenty-five dollars. 

The float which the club entered 
was a great female clown, made of 
paper mache, nearly two stories high. 
It made a big hit with the "kiddies" 
that were there. 

We extend our congratulations to 
the club, especially to the Chairman, 
Robert DeRosa and Joseph Gall, who 
directed the work, and to Paul Boutin, 
who designed the costume. Additional 
work on the float supplied by the 
members of the club.

Krai'skopf Library 

Recently a national association made 
a study of reasons why men fail in 
their college work. They had a sus- 
picion that the cause might be teach- 
ing method, but they found that there 
were many other causes. However, in 
almost every case of failure they found 
that the student knew little about his 
college library. To make such condi- 
tions unlikely at the National Agricul- 
tural College, a course in the use of 
Library resources has been incorpor- 
ated into Freshman Orientation. 

For the past nine weeks, groups of a 
dozen or more Freshmen have re- 
ported to the library on Friday, to 
learn how to find books through use 
of the card catalog, indexes to perio- 
dicals, the Verticle File and the Refer- 
ence collection. The forms of making 
out Borrower's cards, learning the 
layout of the Library (including the 
stacks), and the few regulations gov- 
erning use of material, have all come 
up for consideration. 

The next phase of this work will be- 
gin after the Thanksgiving recess, and 
will begin a practical applicatior. of 
what has been discussed. Professors 
of the college departments have sent 
in suggested lists of subjects for term 
papers. The collection of a biblio- 
graphy of books, periodicals, etc., on 
the subject which each man will draw 
from the professor's lists of subjects. 
The following and last nine weeks of 
(he year will be concerned with writ- 
ing up the material accumulated in 
the bibliography. This should be use- 
ful in scientific and journalistic reports 
and papers, both in College and later.

N.A.C. Student Wins State 
4-H Club Award 

John R. Adams, a student majoring 
in dairy husbandry at National Agri- 
cultural College, will have an all- 
expense trip to the National 4-H Con- 
gress in Chicago as a result of his tak- 
ing top honors in achievement in the 
New York State 4-H awards. 

In addition to the trip to Chicago, 
Mr. Adams will have a chance at win- 
lung a $4(X) college scholarship from 
the Ford Motor Company in Dear- 
born, Michigan, and will be eligible 
for a silver trophy awarded by Presi- 
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Mr. Gurzynski joked about Mr. Linta 
and told of the fine job he is doing 
here. He then told how football helps 
to build character. He made a plea 
for the a\ erage person. "Sure we need 
scientists and liright boys, but we also 
need the axcrage boy. By playing 
football, the axerage boy is given the 
same chance as the bright boy. Don't 
discriminate against the average stu- 
dent, and let him get into college." 

Chiodi, Speaker, Emory 

Emory Markovic, captain of the 
team, was introduced. Emory is a 4 
time letter winner while at N.A.C. He 
was the leading ground gainer on the 
team and was the most valuable 
plaver on the team. As President Work 
said, "without the coaches and Marko- 
vic we would ha\ e had a much worse 
season than we did." This was a fine 
tribute to a great competitor. 

Emory presented ties to all the 
coaches and a gift and game ball to 
Coach Chiodi. 

Coach Chiodi then introduced next 
year's captain, Pat Milfried. We of the

The Furrow would like to express 
the thanks of the entire strident body

Preview of the Coming Basketball Season 

Our new basketball coach, Mr. Chi- 
odi, is going to have a fairly young 
team this year. Dave Linde, using a 
one hand push as his favorite shot will 
lead this young team. Dave is a 6' 2" 
senior beginning his second year as a 
starter. Along with Dave, the only let- 
ternian returning is Bob Frantz. Bob 
is a 5' U" guard. Last year he was a 
very valuable sub. 

Behind the t>vo will come three 
freshmen, Roy Benson, a 6 footer, Lou 
Furman, a 5' 10" guard, and Bill Mer- 
tens, a 6' 5" boys, who is expected to 
share with Dave Linde the rebound- 

The rest of the team includes: Dick 
Hillman, 5' U"; Wheeler Aman, 6' 2" 
Soph.; Joe Moroski, 6' 2" Soph.; John 
Van \'orst, 5' 11" Junior; Ruff, 5' 10" 
Fresh.; Dave Irons, 6' 2" Soph.; Den 
Irons, 6' 1" Fresh.; J. Bullette, 5' 11" 
Soph.; and J. Shafer, 5' U" Freshman. 

These boys opened the season 
against the Eastern Baptist College, 
Saturday afternoon. 

These boys are scrappy and full of 
desire. We are playing a zone defense 
this year which will change to a man 
to man, as the boys gain experience. 

We wish the players a lot of suc- 
cess in the coining season.

N.A.C. Fruit Judging Team 

A team from the National Agricul- 
tural College, Doylestown, Penna., 
competed with teams from Rutgers 
University and the University of West 
Virginia in the Eastern Inter-collegiate 
Fruit Judging Contest which was be- 
ing held at Rutgers University, New 
Brunswick, New Jersey, on Saturday, 
December 5. 

The teams, composed of three judges 
and two alternates, judged twenty- 
four varieties of apples including the 
more important commercial types. Ap- 
ples were judged on the basis of form, 
size, color, uniformity, and condition. 
Each of the competing schools pro- 
vidW a number of classes of apples 
thus assuring a more even basis of 
judging. The judges selected the best 
of three rows of five apples each. Indi- 
vidual judges scores were added to 
arrive at the team score. 

Of the twenty-four varieties judged 
in the contest, twelve types are grown 
in the extensive orchards of the Na- 
tional Agricultural College and a prac- 
tice grove of some twenty kinds will 
reach bearing age within the next two

Campus Quickies 

In view of the rain of shot (To say 
nothing of grape and cannister . . .) 
which has been descending on the 
Junior and Senior dorms with the on- 
set of the hunting season, it is quite 
pleasant to see an occasional result. 
Ed (White Hunter) Stickel, bloody 
but victorious, emerged from the for- 
est the other day with enough fur and 
feathers to maintain a stewpot for 
many a moon. It might be noted here 
that Ed, in accordance with the LAW, 
did his gunning off-campus. Mean- 
while, back at our various college 
ranches, a horde of unaffiliated hunt- 
ers are plugging everything in sight, 
including unarmed students. 

As any graduate will be only too 
willing to tell you, we live in a dog- 
eat-dog society. The much-publicized 
cranberry faux pas is a case in point. 
The industry has been dealt a mortal 
blow, but before the last gasp was 
heard, the vultures had settled on the 
body. Witness the following recent 
radio commercial: (Urchin singing) 
"I just love Appleheny] Ap;)/eberry! 
Appleherry] MMMMMmmmmm! So 

good for you! . . ." Announcer, in hon- 
eyed accents: "And for your Thanks- 
giving feast this year, nothing could 
be better than . . ." 

If this be the much-touted American 
competition, I suggest it leaves much 
to be desired, if only from the stand- 
point of good taste. 

We've noticed quite a large amount 
of personal mail coming in over the 
past month with "Delaware Valley 
College" used as an address How 
strange. These correspondents have 
discovered that address. The United 
States Postal Service knows where to 
send it . . . When do we find out 
what's going on?

You, the student body, are now wit- 
nessing the disentegration of an organ, 
ization which could be one of N.A.C.'s 
biggest assets. The organization— the 
N.A.C. band. And why do we say that 
it is falling apart? Mainly because it 
is down to 15 members This is really 
disheartening when one considers the 
number of students here to play an 
instrument. And, also, because our 
membership is so poor, our activities 
are limited. 

Why do we say that the N.A.C. 
band could be one of N.A.C.'s biggest 
assets? Because the band carries the 
name of the college with it wherever 
it goes. The importance of building a 
good reputation via this representa- 
tive capacity is recognized when foot- 
ball teams or judging teams go on the 
road. But when the band travels little 
concern is shown. 

Something has to be done! But what 
and by whom? Those who have the 
ability to play know what could be 
done in this part— need I say more? 
But what about the rest of us who 
can't play? First of all, give credit to 
those who do have the talent and are 
making use of it. Second, you as an 
individual take notice of the perfor- 
mances and all the student organiza- 
tions. Not only will this stimulate your 
interest, but give you a better appre- 
ciation of the student body, of which 
vou are members.

their esprit de corp. It was Napoleon

At N.A.C. the question is raised, 
"Why isn't there more school spirit? 
What is wrong, and how can this de- 
sired result be effected? 

If Napoleon was correct, then per- 
haps the N.A.C. Kitchen could bear 
some scrutiny. Let us realize that the 
budget is limited and concede that 
the food is acceptable though not ap- 
pealing. But could not just a little 
more be appropriated in order to ob- 
tain a competent, permanent chef? 

Then as we travel to and from clas- 
ses and march to and from the chow 
hall, our stomachs if you please, an 
appetizingly prepared and served meal 
might raise our esprit de corp: not 
raze it, as at present.

Dear Sirs: 

Apparently there are several stu- 
dents on campus who are appalled by 
the student conduct in the N.A.C. din- 
ing hall— how right they are. Yet, I 
wonder whether the students would 
willingly undertake to reform them- 
selves, or whether the conditions in 
the dining hall are conclusive to con- 
duct improvement. 

I refer specifically to the food served 
therein. Certainly the powers that 
have been undertaken to establish a 
diet from which the student body 
can gain the elements necessary for 
a studious, healthy existence; however, 
they have failed time and again to in- 
clude the foremost requirement in the 
diet of our present generation— notibly 

I do not question that all dietetic 
requirements are supplied by the 
meals served, nor that they are fit for 
human consumption; I do, however, 
seriously doubt that the delicate hu- 
man mechanisms known as "taste 
buds" can allow one to eat enough of 
the food to satisfy many of the cx)n- 

This is very closely related to hu- 
man conduct as has been witnessed by 
the prison riots and other items which 
appear in the nation's headlines peri- 

I therefore appeal to someone to 
remedy the situation as it now stands, 
lest our own "Furrow" should ni the 
future, have to feature an ugly article 
on outrageous student conduct stem- 
med from just such a thing.

you go on campus you hear one com-

complain about the food in the cafe-

true or not there's no reason not to be 
polite about it.

A Riddle for Wits and 

The great King Midas has a treas- 
ury. In this treasury the king has 20 
men employed in making gold corns. 
One day, while looking over his gold 
coins, the King discovers that some of 
the coins are shy 1 gram of gold. "One 
of my 20 coin makers is stealing one 
gram of gold for every coin he makes," 
said the King. Determined to find the 
thief the King orders that each of the 
20 coin makers must put the coins he 
makes, which may vary, in a bag with 
his own name on it, and, that at the 
end of the day the 20 bags must be 
brought before the King. 

The next day the 20 bags of coins, 
respec-tively numbered, and each with 
the coin makers name on it, were 
brought before the King. Now, the 
King was a very busy man. He didn't 
want to waste a lot of time going over 
each of the bags of coins. So he sat 
down and thought. Finally he came 
up with a method by which, with one 
iveighiriff on a scale, he could deter- 
mine which of the 20 men was the

Alumni Giving Campaign 

Mr. Samuel Cooke, President of 
Penn Fruit Company and member of 
our Board of Trustees, has accepted 
General Chairmanship of an expansion 
and modernization program for the 
college. President of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation, Frank LaRosa, has been se- 
lected to head the Annual Alumni Giv- 
ing Campaign. 

After several organizational meet- 
ings of our Alumni Steering Commit- 
tee, Class Agents were selected from 
each class. The functions of Class 
Agents will be to talk to or contact 
members of their class in helping to 
make this campaign a financial suc- 
cess. We sincerely hope that everyone 
will cooperate fully with their Class 
Agents and give or pledge generously.

Most rules of etiquette have good

Have you ever watched two hun- 
gry dogs before which some food is 
placed? They will growl at each other, 
and perhaps fight. In the end, the big-

food. Two normally polite people in 
the same situation would share the 
food between them. The difference 
between the dogs and the people is 
that the people have been taught to

All people are born entirely selfish. 
A baby cares about his own comfort 
and well-being. If he is hungry, he 
grabs any food he sees. If he sees some 
object which attracts him, he takes it, 
no matter what or whose it is. If he 
wakes up in the middle of tlie night 
and is hungry or uncomfortable, he 
cries. He does not care whether or not 
his parents want to sleep. He goes 
right ahead and disturbs them. These 
same facts are true of some N.A.C. 
students whether they want to believe 
it or not. The point is, are the students

"We are not the largest but we like to consider ourselves the best." 
This was a statement made by Dean Meyer in an informal address to a 
visiting group of African economists. The occasion of the visit was the 
Third Training Program for African Government Economists sponsored 
by the Bureau of Economic Affairs of the United Nations. 

The pun^osi' of the traininu program 
was to actiuaint the African etonoinists 
witli the several aspects of tin- science of 
agriculture as practiced in the United 
States. N.A.C, the only privately coii- 
cluctecl agricultural college in the ct)ini- 
try, was considered the most appropriate 
for the puriM)se of the training program. 

The economists came from such na- 
tions and territories as Liberia, Tunisia, 
Guinea, Ghana, The United Arab Repub- 
lic, Togoland, British Somaliland, Soma- 
lia, Ethiopia, and Libya. 

Trips to the various departments of 
the (College were planned for the group 
which was imder the guidance of Mr. 
Garl Major Wright, of the Bureau of 
Economics Affairs. David Bogai.skv, a 
Senior agronomy major, gave a talk on 
soil conservation to the group. 

An assembly was held at noon during 
which the economists were introtluced to 
the students. Mr. Thompson, of Lilx^ria 
mentioned that his group was glad to hv 
here. He brought up the fact that since 
the world is getting smaller the people 
of the United States and Africa should l)e 
closer together. "We need exchanges of 
ideas and materials for wi' are depemlent 
on each other," he stated. He closed his 
short talk with, "We cannot thank you 
for we shall return again."

Development Program in Full Swing 



by Jerry Mvlnick 

N..A.C. is now in the midst of its most 
rapid development and expansion since 
its founding as a 4-year college in 1948. 
Since the new gym was put into opera- 
tion last semester, four new buildings 
have risen and another is in the blue- 
print stage. 

Two of these buildings arc the one- 
family faculty h(mies located near the 
Dean's residence. The other two build- 
ings arc the two-floor dormitories which 
are s^hedided for c<mipletion by June 1st. 
The two dorms are to house a total of 
126 students. However, the enrollment 
of on-campus students will increase by 

ily 46 since the population of Ulman 
will Ix^ decreased by 5() students 
and dorm facilities in Lasker Hall and 
the Alumni House will be eliminated. 
The latter two residences currently house 
alxnit 30 students. 

Each of the dormitories will contain a 
faculty apartment and a student lounge. 
A book store, with injproved facilities, 
will be located in one of the dorms. The 
total cost of the dormitories and faculty 
homes comes to approximately $4(K),(X)0, 


which is being fully financed by the Fed- 
eral Housing and Home Finance. Agency 
of the Federal Housing Administration. 
The architects are Martin & Gilmour, 

In Ulman Hall, plans are uwlerway for 
a large-scale renovation of all plumbing 
and heating, and modernization of rooms 
f(ir two students c«ch. Impiovcinents in 
closets, furniture and fl<K)rs (probably 
isphalt tile) and modernization of bath- 
rooms and hallways are also planned. 

In the prfK-ess of*^ eliminating the Alumni 
House as a student residence, this build- 
ing will be converted for use as faculty 
offices, clubrooms for the campus publi- 
cations, and a much needed darkroom 
for the Photography Club which is pres- 
ently located in the basement of the Fac- 
ulty Building. 

Presently in the blueprint stage are 
plans for a library wing, equal in size 
to the existing ground floor facilities. This 
is only part of a proposed $9(),0(X) ex- 
pansion prograu which includes two 
wings and a renovation of the existing 
facilities. When completed the library 
will have a capacity for 600 students. 

View showing the progress of new dorrna due for completion June 1st. The two 
dorms will houae 126 students.

At the last meeting of the Furrow the idea for the exjmnsion of the

and also discuss all matters of vital concern and provide most important 
of all, a medium for the free exchange of ideas. 

We our pkm to increase the benefits of the Student Cottncil 
to the student hodtj. In doing so, we suggest to the Student council that 
provision be made to admit to membership representatives from each of 
the extra curricular activities on campus in an attempt to strengthen our 
present system. 

We think that one irf the reasons for the present .system not being up 
to par is the lack of interest on the part of the student body. No group 
can fulfill its assigned task without the interest and cooperation of those 
who are to be benefited by it.

Yes! we Agcics ha\e an unknown 
friend; un until this past Saturday the 
6th of February it wasn't known. 

There were five of us, Goldie, Roger 
West, Herh Rosinsky, Howie Bunin, and 
Matt Herman, on our way eastbound on 
U. S. route 22 around Plainfield. N. J. 
Our chauffeur Matt was cautiously pas- 
sinK a slow ?no\er. 

Out of the clear hluc, Goldie an- 
nounced s(iuimiishly that a hlue un- 
marked state police car was trailing us. 
Matt playing it cool, proceeded without 
much disturhancc. This lasted only a 
moment, and before we knew what hap- 
pened the hlue monster hailed us off to 
the side of the road. 

Matt promptly popped out of the car 
and started gi\ing the yes sir! routine. 
After the pa.ssage of a few hrief ques- 
lions, the stately loking officer told us 
why we were under survailance. 

He was Mike Shier "51" a Ag Educa- 
tion Major. Up(m .seeing our "Aggie" 
Jackets he started after us in order to 
find out how things were at his Alma

Aggies Win Second 

AftiT w'inninj? their first of the season 
iiKiiiist Phila. Pharmacy 64— 6;3, N.A.C;. 
upset Seton Hall University of Paterson, 
New Jersey 72-62 in a rematch of a 
Home-and-Home series. The team was 
ayain led by its "firery" freshman guard 
Fnrman who hit for 20 points including 
twehe for twehe at the free throw line. 
Da\e Linde, after a slow start bagged 
18 while Bill Mertens and Da\e Ruff had 
13 and 12 respectively. The success of 
our te. ni of late has come from the re- 
turning of senior Emory Markovic and 
the steday impnnement o fRufl and Mer- 
tens. "Big Bill" as he is known to his 
classmates pulled down twenty-fi\e re- 
bounds against Pharmacy and took up 
where he left of} in the Seton Hall g '.me. 
Another happy note has been our J.V.'s 
led by Dick Hillman, John Hillmann, and 
Joe Morosky. Their record of 5-2 comes 
from the fact that all three b«»ys ha\e 
hit in double figures in our last two con- 
tests. Morosky seems to own the boards 
and Hillman and Bulette alternate "hot 
nights." Both of our teams are to b" com 
mended for their "up-bill" perforniaiurs.

Textile Overpowers Aggies 

Philadelphia Textile's overpowering of-

Seton Hall Triumphs 88 to 81 

Seton Hall University of Paterson, New 
Jersey came from behind with a 53 point 
second half spree, to edge the Aggies 88 
to 81. Taking a 41 to 35 lead to the locker 
room at h df time, the Aggies were a 
victom of sharp Seton Hall shooting in 
the second half! Three Aggies hit double 
figures, they were Dave Linde with 24, 
Lou Furman with 21, and Bill Mertens 
with 17. Bill Orovitz and John Ebner 
lead the victors with 24 and 23 respec- 
tively. Ebner a fine soph, jump shot art- 
ist, proved to be vilian for the Aggies 
when he poured in 8 pts. in the final 
minutes, after his teammate Orovitz had 
left the game on personals. Although tlu- 
game marked the fourth loss for the Ag- 
gies, it prAved that they are not to Ix^ 
counted out for this year. Bill Mertens 
and Joe did a fine job on both 
boards while Dave Linde and Louis Fur- 
man were deadly on jump shots. The see- 
saw battle has proved we are in for an- 
other exciting basketball season.

backboard with 20 and 19 rebounds res- 
pectively. Bulette seemed to own the 
bucket as he proceeded to pour in 26 
points. The v ictory was further paced by

Aggies Drop Three in Row 

In the past two weeks the Aggie court- 
men have lost three games in a row. 
Haverford, Newark State and Rutgers of 
South Jersi'y in the order. They have all 
had "hot" niglits against N.A.C. Haver- 
ford rolled to an easy win while Rutgers 
pulled their game out of the fire in the 
last five minutes of play, to put N.A.C. 
out of the rumnng for the Delaware Val- 
ley Conference Championship. Newark 
State on the other hand had to go into 
overtime to defeat a fired up Aggie five. 
With seconds remaining in the game and 
the Aggies down by two points, Dave 
Linde hit on a fifteen foot jump shot to 
send the game into overtime. Late at the 
end of the overtime period of the Newark 
game, VVoj'hsky was fouled by Aman as 
the final buzzer sounded. Awarded two 
shots by the refen-es, mi.ssing tlte first 
and convtrting the second, he won the 
game for Newark by the score of 67-66.

Agricultural News and Outlook 

Hofis — It is believed that the hog 
market has hit the lowest of the price 
cycle and is on the way back up. It is 
predicted that in summer the prices may 
be from $16-$17. 

Corn — It's suppo.sed to be a good time 
to sell high moisture corn. Fairly severe 
winters in different .sections have in- 
creased demand for feed grains. 

Barley and Grain Sornhttm — Prices 
should benefit from the steady corn 

Wheat — Most of your cla.sses of wheat 
.should be .sold now. 

It is predicted that Secretary Ben.son's 
new wheat program will be turned down 
this year. Chairman Ellender the Senate 
Agricultural Committee proposed a high- 
ly supiiort rate, a cut back in acreage 
allotments and other tightening controls. 

Over-aU winter wheat prospects are 
average or above at the time. 


The newest addition to the extra cur- 
ricular clubs at NAG is the Science So- 
ciety which was organized last semester. 
The nucleus of the club is the Chem. and 
Biology majors but any student with an 
interest in such activity may becimie a 
member. The Society meets <m the first 
and third Tuesdays of the month in the 
Biology lab. Faculty advisors are Dr. 
Bowen, Mr. Trelavvny and Mr. Adelson. 

I At present the Society has a project 
under way which lies in the area of the 
effects of various inorganic compounds 
on plants and animals. Specifically the 
first part of the project is to substitute the 
t'lemen tstromtium for calcium in the diet 
of white mice. Six pairs of white mice 
will bt^ fed soluble strontiimi in their 
drinkingw ater correlated with calcium — 
free c(mcentrates. The stnmtium will be 
fed to 5 pairs of mice in (juantities vary- 
ing from one to forty parts per millicm. 
The sixth pair will serve as controls. Vari- 
ables such as age, weight, sex, focnl con- 
sumed, stnmtium consumed and weight 
deviations will be noted and from this 
data, charts, graphs, and general analy- 
sis will be made. This experiment will be 
expanded in the to include substitution 
of strontium for calcium in the environ- 
ment of radishes and in a bacteria cul-

Friday, March 11,1960 



By Paul Blatt 

Junior Oniainental Horticulture majors prcsoiitt'd an exhibit at the 
33rd annual flower show in Philadelphia, which is being held March 7-12. 
The display, using as its theme, the "Rose Retreat," blended the lieauty 
of massed roses and e\ergreens with the pleasing structural lines of a 

garden retreat. 

Mr. Fre'dt-ric Blau, Professor of Laud- | 
scape Design, directed tin- v^ork on the 
retreat done by the juniors. The retreat 
had as its highHjiht two rectangular pools 
on two levels joined by a spillway. A 
large asymetrical pine o\crhung the iip- 
l)er pool which was fronted by a nia.ssing 
of roses which were horded by yews. The 
lower p«M)l was placed in a corner of the 
gravel-floored retreat which was enclosed 
by a retaining wall with grey flagstone. 

A screen of redw(K)d slates l>oarderetl 
two sides of a canopied seat which was 
also constructed of redw(M>d. The cap 
boards of the screen and leading edges 
of the .seat's canopy were painted white 
to pro\ide contrast to the mellow, nat- 
ural tones of the redwood. C^ontemporary 
influences wen- .seen throughout the re- 
treat's construction from the angeled can- 
opy of the .seat to the artistically alter- 
uatetl slats of the screen. Mas.sed roses 
l)ordered three sides of the retreat with 
twt» dogwoods and yews giving contrast. 
The back was screened with hemlocks. 

Junior Ornamental Horticulture majors 
Peter J. Smith and John Van Vorst look 
on as Mr. Frederic Blau points to area 
where roses are planted. 

This retreat, designed by Mr. Blau, is 
adapted to fit a corner of the a\erag<' 
surburban lot with a minimum of diffi- 
culties and expense. 

The flower show pro\ided ttie pfactical 
experience which was applied to the prac- 
tices taught in the course of Landscape 

The w(M)d work was done by Mr. Wil- 
liam Covington and his assistants. 

The roses which were u.sed in the 
display were purchased from the Conard 
Pyfe Company (Star Roses). Some 
of the roses were special varieties and 
records were kept on their progress due 
to forcing. Mr. Richard Bateman, instruc- 
tor in Floriculture at the college, directed 
the setting up of the retreat with the 
help of the following junior Ornamental 
Horticulture majors:

Ass't Dean Interviewed 
On Radio 

It was revealed on February 22, by 
Oskar Lars,son, Assistant Dean of Stu- 
dents, in an interview conducted by Dr. 
George Turner over liK-al radio station 
WBUX, that N.A.C. is ready to admit fe- 
male students. In more detail, Mr. Lars- 
S(m explained that girls will be accepted 
now if they are day students, since hous- 
ing for girls is not available on campus 
at the present time. Coed dormitory hous- 
ing is planned in the near future. 

Mr. Lars.son dso expli.ined that the 
$L926,()0 expansit)n program planned for 
the college is to be completed in fi\e 
years. The program itself is built around 
an enrollment increase, of more than 
double the present enrollment by 196.5. 

First priority on th«' building ajjenda 
is the expansion of the library, a student 
center building, and renovation of older 
buildings. The double-wing expansion of 
the library, at an estimated cost of $90,- 
(KK), will give the library room for an 
additional 18,(KK) lx)oks, this in itself is 
a valuable cultural as.set to the college. 
The student center costing $425,(X)0 will 
havt' a kitchen, club ro<mis, seminar 
rooms, the post office and a dining hall 
to accomwlate 50() students. La.sker Hall

barn. The Doylestown Fire Department 
iirrived at the scene when the raging fire 
was in the advanced stages. Nothing 
could 1k' done to save the building. Chal- 
f(mt Fire Company arrived next. 

Many pigs jx^rished in the main liarn. 
But through the team work of the two 
fire company's tlie hlaze was checked in 
three hours. Thus stopping the spread 
to adjacent buildings. 

Many Aggies moved the pigs trapped 
in this barn to safety. While this was 
going on another group of students were 
moving machiner\' and e(juipment out of 
the wake of the fire. 

According to Mr. Derstine the farm 
manager, the cause of the fire was light- 
ning. Eightv tons of cattle feed were lost 
and the damage all told was estimated at 
$.5{),(KK). One consolation is that it could 
have proved far more disasterous if a 
ga.soline tank directly in front of the barn 

caught fire. //. Rosinsky

Now tliat the basketball season has ended the respect was not what 
it should have been for our team, opponents and the officials of the basket- 
hall games. The support for our team hm been inadequate. Instead of 
one or two students using the megaphone— why not have a group of them 
cheer the Aggies. Yes, a few will give tlie cheer— Give me an A-G-G-1-E-S. 
W hat happened to all the other cheers^ What respect do you have for 
our opponents with a cheer— Give me a R-V-T-G-E-R'-S—What does it 
sped!' Garbage"— This certainly isnt respect for a team. This doesn't add 
to the game nor does it add to the name of the college. Furthermore these 
ridiculed teams will very likely not renew their contracts for additional 
intercollegiate sports with the college. 

Hav» you ever tried being an official? It isn't an easy job. And for 
one to see all the actions in a basketball game is almost impossible. Sure, 
they may make a bad call. It might happen several times. This is the 
way they see things. The respect for the officials should be just as much 
as that for our team, professors, and college. 

Yes, wise cracks once in awhile can't be helped. But when the official 
has to siop the game and talk to spectators about their uses of language 
it is time to change, and the change should start now. 

As long as we are on the subject of students and basketball, it has 
come to the attention of many members of this publication that at most 
of our basketball games tve have become known as the farmers. True 
there is no disgrace to this title but let us look at this more closely. 
Although most of the students take great care of the type of clothing 
thetj wear to many of our social events, there are always a few who do 
not. It's hard to believe that these few could give our .school this name 
but this is the way it seems. 

Looking around at most basketball games you can see many of our 
students in what is becoming the typical N.A.C. dress uniform that of 
dungarees, dungaree jacket, cowboy hat, and engineer hoots. This is 
fine for work and maybe not to much can be said about it in 
since there are no set rules on dress on campus. But surely there should 
be a sense of respect for your college that would want you to dress 
decently when there are guests on campus. 

You must remember that we are a college and are expected to act 
in such a manner that this fact can be seen. Vm not saying that white 
shirts and ties are necessary hut at least sport shirts and jackets are or 
should be the dress of the day. School pride is something we all musi 
have to make our team fight till the end and have others respect us. 

Letters to tlx Editor 

Dear Sir: 

I am writing tu you because I feel that 
what I have to say concerns everyone who 
reads your paper. 

The students at the College do not 
like it when the townsf)eopl€ make ad- 
verse comments about them, hut tlieu 
(the students) have much to do with 
these comments. One thing in particular 
that really makes me angry is to see a 
few students going into "Ed's Diner" 
dressed like they just came from the 
Dairy. This in itself causes unfavorable 
comments, but I should think these fel- 
lows would think of themselves a little. 
It doesn't say very much for them and 
does nothing for the college. I'm not 
flying everyone should wear a shirt and 
a tie, but wear something clean and pre- 

I think if you printed this in the Fur- 
row, maybe some of the students would 
feel a little more self conscience when 
going into town. They shmdd remember 
that their actions will draw the favorable 
or unfavorable comment from the towns-

Aggies Bow to Trenton 

Trenton State Teachers College made 
a last home appearance, a losing one for 
(mr Aggies, as they ripped the nets for 
a one sided 79-67 victory. Four of the 
five Trenton starters bit in double figures 
with Bill Richie leading the pack, scoring 
20 points. Dave Linde wbo played his 
last home game was able to put in 19 
in a losing effort. Dick Hillman who 
scored 33 points in the J.V. game had 
15 to make his total for the night 48 
points. Wheeler Anian and Emory Mark- 
ovic balanced out the rest of the scoring 
with 15 and 10 points respectively. 

Leading at half time by the score of 
41-36 Trenton put a fast breaking offence 
together which was too much in the fad- 
ing minutes of play. Although the Aggies 
controlled the boards, Trenton hit for 
an amazing 56% from the field. 

The Aggies will play their two re- 
maining games on the road.

Table Tennis Team 

By Jake Sensenich 

As the table tennis season nears the 
end, . N.A.C.'s team members are still 
practicing for the Delaware Valley Table 
Tennis Conference Champion.ships. This 
year the meet was played here at th(> 
N.A.C. gymnasium on March 8th at 4:00 
r.M. Other teams that were represented 
other than N.A.C. were Eastern Baptist, 
Rutgers of South Jersey, and, favorite, 
Philadelphis Pharmacy. 

< Our team was represented l)y five 
of the following best mi-n: P»ul Kirsch, 
Tony Remton, Neil Trager, Bill Keyser, Hal 
Roberts, Carl Bayha, George Shelly, Bud 
Charlick, Ira Soloman, and Jake Senaenich.

Lincoln Wins 70-56 

By Chuck MiUer 

After a fast start the N.A.C. "hoop- 
sters" went down in defeat to a "fast 
breaking" Lincoln five, by the score of 
70-56. The game saw Capt. Dave Linde 
pacing the Aggies with 23 points. Linde, 
who was the only man for the Aggies in 
double figures, pulled dowii twelve re- 
bounds ah)ng with Whieler Aman who 
had fourteen. Although Lincoln was out- 
played on the boards they managed to 
hit 27 field goals to the Aggies 20 and 
that was much the story of the game. 

Len Clo.ssen 6 ft. 1 in. forward poured 
in 28 points, while team Capt. Bill Smith 
helped the cause with 16 for Lincoln. 
Playing on a strange court the Aggies 
played one of their !>etter games of the 
year, only to have it tmed into a loss. 

The team is looking for some better 
brakes when they meet Trenton State for 
the second time this year. This game will 
close the home game season and shoidd 
prove to be a real scoring battle. Trenton 
(5-11) beat the Aggies 85-55 on Dec. 
9th. This game will mark Uie farewell 
appearance at home of two outstanding 
Aggies, Capt. Dave Linde and Emory 

It is interesting to note that Linde has 
scored 265 points this year in 17 games. 
He has 122 field goals and 39 foiil con- 
versions. His single high, of 32 points and 
a court record was against Phil. Bible

Linde's 32 Scuttles Bible 

Captain Dave Linde hit for 32 fioints 
to lead the Aggie attack against Phila. 
College of the Bible f)n Saturday, Feb. 13 
and set a new floor record for the Aggie 
gym. Linde's 32 point.s, on 15 of 24 field 
shots and two foul conversions, bettered 
the record set on December 19 by Al 
Kapczynski of Glassboro State who scored 
27 points. 

In defeating the College of the Bible 
82-69, the Aggies brought their season 
record to 5- 1 1 and broke a four-game 
losing streak. 

Bible threatened the Aggies midway 
in the first half hut the home club pulled 
into the lead to stay with eight minutes 
left in the opening period and took a 
comfortable 46-31 count off the floor at 
the half. 

The Crusaders of Bible could not come 
closer than 7 points during the second 
half and were held to 6 points in the 
closing moments while Bob Chiodi's 
Aggies widened their lead.

J.V.'s Win 75-71 

Dick Hillmann set a new court high as 
the Aggies T.V. dumped Trenton 76-71 
in their last home game. Playing with out 
their big forward VValt Peterson, the team 
was still able to ccmtrol the boards while

ed amazing scoring strength. Hillmann 
who possesses a fine one-hander could not

and had a good night at the foul line 
with an 88* total.

Mr. Forbes told the forestors that one 
of the surest ways to increase public rec- 
ognition of forestry would be to upgrade 
the professional training in the field. His 
se\en years of teaching at an agricultural 
college conxinced hinj, he said, that in 
forestry in agriculture, tlie professi»mal 
man sliould have three years of general 
education in language, basic sciences, and 
the humanities before undertaking two 
years of intensive training in his profes- 
sicm. He cited industries which are t(xlay 
seeking men with a broad educational 
background for their top policy-making

Student Council to Have 
Awards Banqnet 

At the last meeting of the Student 
Council, memlxTS of each of the extra- 
curicular acti\ ities were told of the forth- 
coming awards banqu<'t. The awards will 
be presented to club members who have 
done outstanding deeds but have not 
gained recognition for th(<m. The clubs 
will nominate as many members as they 
deem necessary and the council will vote 
on each candidate and the winners will 
reccixe the awards. 

Also di.scus.sed was a plan to rid the 
college's parking problem. The Doyles- 
lowii Township police will Ix- patrolling 
the campus to Keep the students cars 
properly parked. Effective March 1st stu- 
dents who park their cars in illegal park- 
ing places, will be issued parking tickets. 
The college will not gain any revenue 
collected through the fines, but will bene- 
fit through the result of having the stu- 
dent parking problem imder ccmtrol. 

The ccmncil then voted on the resolu- 
tion of student Edgar Mullen, '61 who 
will have the authority to start a student 
coiK-ession in the dormitories. Mullen 
will sell sandwiches, hot dogs, and coffee. 

Students using the front d(X)r of Lasker 
Hall had better beware of councilman 
Dick Jordan's plan for the discourage- 
nx-nt of use of this entrance. Dick's plan 
is to gi\e tickets for the illegal use of 
the d(M)r and fines will be collected. 

She Student Lounge has been a topic 
for criticism at the last .several meetings 
of the Student Council. It seems that the 
students aren't taking the proper care 
that they should of the Lounge. All soda 
bottles should be placed in the nroper 
place aixl paper and shold also be 
dispo.sed of in a similar manner. 

At the next meeting of the Student 
Council, a representative from the "Fur- 
how" will bring up the issue which was 
brought forth in the last issiic of the 
"FunBOw", that is, the enlargement of 
the Student Council by pla'-iug a repre- 
.sentative of each dub on the council. 
Any views on the part of the student 
body in regards to this plan please ad- 
dress al correspondence to:

The Parking Problem We 
Brought Upon Ourselves 

Due to the lack of student ctH)ix'ration 
with the parking rules .set down by tht; 
Student Omncil, " the repeated parking 
violators, the inconvenience to faculty, 
and the damage to the campus, a park- 
ing resolution is seen for the xery near 

Because of this reix-ated annoyance the 
college has recjuested the Doylestown 
Township Police to take complete con- 
trol of this self-createtl parking pniblem. 

Firies and |X'nalties will Im- issued and 
carried out bv flu- D«>ylestown Township 
Police and all the revenue collected frouj 
these fines will go to the Police Depart- 

This ruling will effect both student and 
facility violators. Only certain required 
cars on campus will be immune to this 

Before this goes Into effect the student 
and faculty Ixxly will be notified. 

This idea was retiuested by the Stu- 
dent Council they felt they could- 
n't handle the problem luiless it was put 
on a full time basis. 

Many of us hoix- that it won't be ne- 
cessary t<» carry this enforcement out. We 
still feel it would be a lot easier if we 
stayed out of the facility parking lot 
which is directly Ix'hiiid Si-gal Hall and 
If we ilidn't park on Alunmi Lane. Off 
camput ttudentt mutt alto ute the main 
ttudant parking lets. Let us all try to .soKe

efforts and enthusium toward preparation 
foi their spring engagements. 

This will be the first time that the 
N.A.C. voices have carried to a larger 
Hiiladelphia college. It is the sincere de- 
sire of the Glee Club that this concert 
will be a stepping stone to a greater ex- 
pansion of their future spring scheduals. 

Abo on tlie club's calradar for the near

N.A.C. Students Express Their Views 
On Presidentiol Hopeinls 

By Jerry Mulmck 

With political convention time getting near it is logical for us to ask 
ourselves who will be nominated to run K)r President come next Novem- 
ber's election. 

The Republican convention will undoubtably nominate the Vice Presi- 
dent, Richard Nixon. Nixon has no competition whatsoever particularly 
since New York's Governor Nelson Rockefeller has declined to throw his 
hat in the ring. However, it is the Democratic convention that has every- 
body guessing. For here five men are in the limelight: Minnesota's Hu- 
bert Humphrey, Massachusett's Junior Senator, John Kennedy, Missouri's 
Senator Stuart Symington, Senate Majority Leader from Texas, Lyndon 
Johnson, and of course the man from Illinois, Adlai Stevenson. 

The first two mentioned have already 
thrown their hats in the ring aiKl are 
batthng it out at various primaries. 

In an effort to get public opinion work, 
ing at NAC I asked several students to 
give their views on the potential candi- 
date most likely to receive their vote. 
Due to the impromt questioning the an- 
swers were very brief. 

NIXON: Jim Hoev*^— I feel that Nixon 
has been the first vice President to take 
an active interest in intemationai affairs. 
Due to the split within the Democratic 
party I think Nixon would be a sure 


Ed Stkkal — Nixon has had excellent 
experience in foreign policy (which we 
are now lacking) and I feel he would 
continue the good policies set down by 

KENNEDY: Tom F«isth»m«l— Although he 
is a millionaire I feel he has lots of ap- 
peal toward the common people and tne 
youngest candidate ever to be considered 
for the Presidency (Kennedy is only 42 
years of ageh This is mainly because of 
his cliarm, family background and the 
way he handles himself. But beware of 
the shadow of the late Al Smith (who 
lost the 1928 elw^on against Herbert 
Hoover because he was a Catholic as is

Di. Tomer Addresses 
Conncil Rock High 

On February 24, 1960, Dr. Georee E. 
Turner, Dean of Science, and professor 
of Food Industry, here at the college, 
presented a seminar to a group of Sen- 
iors at the Council Rock Hi^ School ni 
Newtown, Pa. 

The seminar dealt with the technologi- 
cal problems in Food Processing and 
methods used for their treatment. One 
of the areas covered dealt with the viru- 
ses in industrial fermentations. 

For background material a film was 
shown on cheese making. Tlie role of 
Bacteriophage in preventing the normal 
manufacture of cheese was discussed and 
slides indicating how such a study is 
made formed part of Dr. Tuner's illus- 
trated talk.

Artists and Poets of N.A. C. 

We at the coUege shotdd feel privileged, for we have a host of poets 
and artists among our student body. Their works of "art" can he found on 
the waUs in every part of the campus. Witty myinss and pictures of every 
type and description are among their great "works of art." 

When an individual enters coUege it is believed that he has both ma- 
turity and intelligence. A student needs both. One can not have one of 
these traits without the other to be a student in every sense of the word. 
These "artists" are ordy in school for one thing, "Kicks." A student should 
be tolerant of others, not try to degrade them. Tryir^ to degrade others 
only shows trie immaturity of the person or persons who think this is fun. 

Most of us at one time or another have had relatives and friends, visit 
us on campus. Think how it would feel to walk down one of our halls 
and there before you stand one of these sayings about you. 

We all krww that there is no place to eat extra food on campus, but 
this is no reason for many of the utensUs to be taken from the dining hall. 
Dishes, cups, sUverware, and pitchers have disappeared so fast that it is 
impossible to keep up with their need in the dining haU. Lets all find a 
way of returning these objects to the kitchen. 

'It has also been reported that gasoline is disappearing from the 
cars of students in the parking lots behind both the gymnasium and the 
senior dorm. It is a terrible thing when boys can not trust their own 
buddies on campus. We know this act has infuriated the student body as 
well as some of the faculty and administration. This act must be stopped 
at once. WE ask the Student Coimcil to set up a punishment of suspen- 
sion for anyone caught doing this.

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

Many thanks for the "Editoriar 
in the 11 March issue of the "Fur- 
row." It was needed to slunv tfw 
N.A.C. men that bad actions are re- 
membered long after the good ones 
are fogotten. 

As soon as a student is identified 
as being from N.A.C. each of his 
actions speak for the whole coUege. 

1 believe class officers arid the 
Student CouncU sfwuld show the 
few "bad eggs" the harm they are 

There's no sense in trying to build 
up the college at all as long as there 
ate one or two students whose ac- 
tions break it down. 

N.A.C. needs ar\d is getting good 
publicity thru Radio, T.V., News- 
papers, "A"-Day exhibits, Fhwer 
Shows, etc. 

Let's hope each student puts in 
a good word for N.A.C. when ever 
he can. 

N.A.C. uAU ordy become what 
the students make it. 


Leonard GoLDE^r^YER '58 

Dear Editor: 

In addition to the new parking 
resolution which is seen for tlw 
very near future, I suegest that the 
student council inchme some reso- 
lutions on personal appearance and 

When I speak of personal ap- 
pearance 1 speak rwt otdy of the 
appearance shown by the students 
outside the campus but also the 
appearance shown by many on the 
campus. The manner in which a 
few individuals dress for dinner is 
a good indication of the lack of 
good personal appearance on cam- 

In speaking of conduct I refer to 
the damaging of coUege property 
and to the blocking of our fir0 en- 
gine in the Farm Machinery budd- 
ing by students who use that space 
to do work on their cars. 



Mr. Popham Injured 
In Fall 

On February 16, 1960, Mr. James H. 
Pqpham, Instructor in Chemistry, slipped 
and fell while walking, the resulting in- 
jury was a broken arm with a compound 
fracture just below the shoulder. 

Mr. Popham was rushed to the Doy- 
lestown Efmergency Hospital for first aid 
tn-atment, he was later transfered to the 
Abington Memorial Hospital where his

under traction will be requir^ before the 
bone is sufficiently knit to be put in a cast. 

Mr. Popham is now staying in room 
353 at the Abbington Memorial Hc^pital

Honor Aggie 

President of the Band, Glee Club and 
Agronomy Club; Secretary-Treasurer of 
the A-Day Committ^ — that's Carl Roger 
Blatt, senior Agronomy major. 

"Rodge", as his friends call him, hails 
from Chatham, New Jersey. It is here 
that he attended school as his younger 
brother and sister are currently doing. 
His father is an insurance investigator 
and adjustor for a firm in East Orange. 

"Rodge" was jmt as en^getic in high 
school as he has been h&e at NAC. He 
has always been active in Club work, 
intramurals, and all sports — horn baseball 
and skiing to fishins and trailing. Ac- 
cording to his hi^ ^o(>l yearbook 
Rodge had an "Ambition . . .to study 
Forestry." Although his ambition has 
been altered he is still a lover of the 
creat outdoors, farm and forest alike. He 
has traveled out west with his family 
three times visiting such places as the 
Black Hills of Souui Dakota, Yellowstone 
National Park in Wyoming, and Colorado 

Although he was accepted to other 
colleges Rodge was attracted to N.A.C. 
due to its size and was influenced by A- 
Day, 1956. Just before entering N.A.C. 
Rodge gained some practical experience 
by growing hybrid com for the Allen- 
town (New Jersey) S^d Growers Asso- 

Rodge has always been an exceptional 
student and has made the Dean s List

Year ne was co-chairman of the A-Day 
Committee, and Secretary-Treasurer of 
the Band, Glee-Club and Agronomy Club. 
This year he is President of the latter 
three organizations and Secretary-Treas- 
urer of the A-Day Committee. 

Ever since his Sophomore year Rodge 
has had plans for continuing his educa- 
tion in graduate school. He currently has 
applications with Rutgers and Cornell 
and plans to major in soil fertility and 
minor in plant physiology. He has taken 
extra courses in the scienc-es ( i.e. Physics, 
Qantitative and Quahtative Chemistry) 
to prepare himself for graduate school. 
In the future he hopes to work for pri- 
vate industry' doing re^arch but will 
insist on outaor work. 

The Furrow wishes to congratulate 
Rodger Blatt '60 for the fine work he is 
doing for himself and N.A.C.

terrain, animal population, politics and 
professional game hunters. 

During the^ showing of the films Mr.

N.A.C. English Professors 

Took Port in Pone! 

The English faculty of the college par- 
ticipated in a sectional meeting of the 
Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of Eng- 
lish held at Philadelphia Textile Institute 
on March 19th. Presiding over the meet- 
ing was Mr. Howard Carlisle of Rox- 
borough High School. 

Mr. Reginald D. Forbes, associated 
professor of English at the college, served 
as the chairman of a panel discussion on 
"Sentence Mastery -When and How to 
Teadi It." Composing the panel were 
Miss Jane Kohler of Central Bucks Joint 
High School, Doylestown, Mrs. Erma 
Shearer of the Forest Avenue Grade 
School in Ambler, Mr. Anthony Ridge- 
way of Episcopal Academy, Overbrook, 
and Brother Edward Patrick of La Salle 

English teachers from grade, junior 
high, and hig^ schools as well as colleges 
and universities in Southeastern Pennsyl- 
vania attended the day-long sessions 
which began at 9 a.m. 

Mr. Forbes expressed the hope that 
English teachers of all grades attend 
this meeting. "Only by a joint attack," 
he said, "can we solve the problem of 
teaching our young people to write and 
speak our native tongue."

Stndeat Improvement, QectioB of Clus Officers, 
Highlight Sophomore Meeting 

On Wednesday March 16, the sophomores at N.A.C., had a long, argu- 
mentative class meeting. Three main subjects were discussed at the meet- 
ing, the improvement of our personal appearance and other wise, on and 
off campus, improvements of meals, and the election of class officers. 

The personal appearance of the stu- 
dents was discussed first, the class as a 
whole believes that wearing work clothes 
at lectures, to meals, or in town should 
be completely abolished. The respect and 
language of the students on and o£F cam- 
pus can be bettered, especially in town 
where the public eye is on us. The class 
suggested wearing jackets to the evening 
meal. Then the old question of improve- 
ment of meals came up, here Dick Jordan 
spoke up, he gave a very good report on 
exactly now he has been carrying out our 
grievances in anticipation of improving 
the meals. At the present time Dick is 
heading a one man grievance committee 
and police force, but in the future the 
class said they will try to aid him in his 
efiForts. He explained that every day he 
makes a report on our complaints and 
suggestions and gives it to Mr. Miller. 
The class did agree that there has been 
considerable improvement in the break- 
fast meals. Again Dick explained to us 
how well oflF we are and we do not real- 
ize it. He told us how some other col- 
leges are getting fed and the exact in- 
gredients of their meals, some other stu- 
dents elaborated on his comments, the 
class agreed we are eating better than 
most colleges and getting food in more 

In order to venture into this problem 
of improvement a little deeper and to 
find a way to enforce rules, the class 
elected an Improvement Committee of 
nine men. The committee's job will be 
to take all the suggestions, disquss them 
and arrive at improvements arul ways 
to enforce such improvements. If neces- 
sary the committee will hold discussions 
with the faculty and administration. 

The sopliomore class hopes that the 
other classes wjll follow suit to help im- 
prove the college through the students 

The new class officers elected for the 
1960-61 term are: Kirk Brown, president; 
Robert Frantz, vice - president; John 
Murch, secretary; Dennis Trexler, treas- 
urer; James Matro and Edward Kennedy, 
Student Council Representatives; and 
Norwood McGuigan, Sergeant-at-Arms; 
Robert Frantz vice-president Will also 
serve 6n the Student Council.

To Cheat Or Not To Cheat 
Is It Really A Question? 

EdUor^a note; TM$ orNcb it rtprinUd by pemU»$km from the Lincoln Unfotfrafty ntwtpaper, "The 
LtncobUat%." C/Matfiig ocewt in aU coUmget, N. A. C. being no exception. 

I know that this topic is one of the 
most pertinent questions on the minds of 
students at this university. Students will 
lie, steal, cheat and do anythii^ for good 
grades. I am only one of the mass major- 
ity of the "dieat experts" at Lincoln. 

I have seen honest students study hard 
and long. Then I go into the examinations 
with them and do as well or better than 
they. I wonder why the foob study. I 
laugh at them. While they are studying, 
I have a rollicking good time and make 
my weekend runs. However, I do find 
time to fix up my illegitimate aids for 
examinations. I find time to copy the 
homework assigiunente ht)m the students 
in niy various classes who study their 
courses diligently. For example, I get my 
math from James Doe; my English from 
J(An Doe; my French from Joe Smart; 
my [^)^cs from James Atom; and my 
German from Herr Schlitz. I've had two 
years of German and the only thing that 
I know from having the course is that 
the beers which are luuned Budweiser 
and Schlitz have German names and that 
Black Label is not a German name. I 
have become worried, hwvever. I am 
having a hard time finding students at 
this K:hool that study honestly and dili- 
gently to do my homework. 

Several of my collegian friends have 
been fortunate enou^ to make the dean's 
list. Isn't that a laugh? These cheaters 
are honored along with th& hard work- 
ing students. How can anyone honor dis- 
honest people? Yet the university and the 
student body honor them. You might 
know one or two of my good friends that 
made the dean's Ust by being discreet in 

Sometimes I get laboratory reports (es- 
pecially in physics) from people who have 
had the course. Of coune all my physics 
laborat(Hy reports are perfect. Several of 
my cheating friends used this practice to 
get on the dean's list. 

I'll cheat as long as I am at Lincoln. 
My cheating friends look up to me. The 
student body respects me and they would 
never squeal on me. They are afraid that 
my powerful friends might have them 
ostracize. The examinations are given in 
such a manner that facilitates cheating. 
There is only one proctor and he can't 
look every place at once. That is only a 
feat that God can do. I carry my pointers 
and aids up my sleeves; in my shoes, un- 
der my coat; on my arm, leg and hand; 
awl in ball-point pens. I have a twenty/ 
ten vision. My eyes are the roviiig type 
and they can focus a formula, an idea, 
a cue or an answer from a neighbor three 
or four seats away. 

I don't have much to worry about if I 
am caught. I'll never be put out of sdiool. 
The worst thing that could happen to me 
is that I mi^t fail the course. That 
should hai^n, if I am caught. I think 
that it is better to cheat than to repeat. 

Let's face facts. This world is evil. 
How can an honest man advance in a dis- 
honest world. I know two yottng men 
here at Lincoln who have a sign on their 
door which states "STUDY HOURS, 8 
A.M. to 10 P.M. DO NOT DISTURB." 
I know that they are honest and study 
diligently every minute of this time and 
probably more. Yet, sometiines I make 
better grades than both of them. One of 
these two young Lincolnite; is so kind 
that he will lay down his own studies to 
help you, even though his help may cause 
you to get a better grade than he. I re- 
member during the finals that he sto{^)ed 
preparing for his own examination to help 
one of his classmates. I think that he is 
sick in the head. I would never waste my 
time helping someone else. Even if I 
wanted to, I couldn't, I don't know any- 

I sure hope that I will be able to score 
on the GRE. I hear that it is di£BciJt to 
cheat on it from good sources. I hope that 
I will pass my M^ Ap exam also. 

I am going to be a professional man. 
I am going out to represent my school. I 
may be a surgeon, {^ysicist, madiemati- 
cian, chemist, historian, teacher. 

Could* you picture me working out 
chemical, mathematical, or physical for- 
muli? Gould you picture me telling my 
congregation or pupils to be good and 
righteous when I, myself, am dishonest. 
Could you picture me dissecting a hu- 
man body if I didn't have at my side that 
diligent student who did my anatomy 
for me. You know it's fun to know that 
you have pulled a fast one over on the 
professor. The joke becomes morbid, 
however, when you reahze that you have 
pulled one over on yoiu^elf, too. 

I believe that most of the cheating 
would cease at Lincoln if we would find 
another system, other than grades, for 
rating students. Most students think that 
good grades are a sign of status and hon- 
or. They, like myself, will do anything to 
attain this status and honcHr. I think that 
I could break my habit of cheating if 
you had to pass the course or either fail 
and there were no grades involved. Sev- 
eral members of the administration might 
think that this system would be disas- 
trous. They would think that the students 
would only study hard enough to pass. 
In a school as small as this one, every 
instructor knows the capabilities of his 
students. If they don't work up to their 
capabilities, they should be failed. I think 
that students would put a more serious 
interest in their studies rather than their 
grades and cheating would vanish from 
the campus of Lincoln. 

I hoTOStly believe that this system will 
bring back honesty and dignity to the 
ranks of the students at Lincoln.

N*ll Tragw — I believe he has the best 
civil rights platform. His election would 
surely prove the truth of freedom of re- 
ligion within our democracy. However, 
his young age may seem to unjustifiable 
indicate lack of experience.

and has made his own fortune in doing 
so. Since the President is the leader of 
the worU's greatest corporation I feel he 
would be a great asset. He is a gocxl 
speaker, is backed by the party arS is 
supported by much of die public media. 
He has great ability and has i^ver yet

JOHNSON: Sill KMinMly— He'd make a 
popular candidate because he advocates 
the nnaU businesonan. 

Nmv ieney 0*v*nier MEYNEIt: Oidi Nor-

Track Added To Athletic Program 

Aimittant Track Comch J<aeph Fulooly, txxmptmm Fraa^ Rmdioan mtd John Hoim, 
mnd Track Coach Nad Linta. 

Track has been added to the inter* 
collegiate athletic proeram of the Na- 
tional Agricultural College, Doylestown, 
Penna., this year. Ned A. Linta, chair- 
man of the College's athletic department, 
will coach the new sport which brings 
then umber of intercollegiate sports to 
four. Football, basketball, and baseball 
schedules have been maintained by the 
school since the turn of the century, long 
before it achieved college status. Mr. 
Linta explained that the broadening of 
the College's athletic program will keep 
pace with its proposed academic and 
campus building development which is 
presently underway. 

Some forty students reported out for 
the new sport when the call was issued 
a month ago. Most of the runners are now 
working out on a foiu'-and-a-half-niile 
cross-country course which was estab- 
lished on the campus in anticipation of 
a cross-country team next fall. Field men 
are now working indoors on weights but 
are preparing to move outdoors within 
the next two weeks. Overall conditioning 
is the current stress. 

Since the College's present athletic 
facilities do not incUide a track, arrange- 
ments were made to use the oval at Doy- 
lesto^yn Memorial Field, a short distance 
from the campus. Future plans of the 
College include the erection of a new 
football field with a quarter mile track 
with a 220 straightaway along Route 202 
which Iwrders one portion of the 970 
acres owned by the College. 

Mr. Linta is confident of team depth 
in sprints and middle distance as well as 
field weights and javeUn. His squad is 
rather young, being dominated by fresh- 
men and sophomores who are talented 
in their events but lack the polish of ex- 
perience. Judging by the keen interest 
displayed by the participants, the deficit 
of polish should be easily overcome once 
the weather breaks. Joseph Fulcoly, Asst. 
Dean of Students and backfield coach of 
football, will .serve as asst. track coach 
working especially with 440 and field- 


Co-captains for botli track ami field 
events are, Frank Radican, a senior, htads 
the track men while John Holm, a junior, 
. is captain of the field men. A track sched- 
ule is presently under preparation for 
the coming spring.

Aggies Lose 65-64 

By Chuck MiUer 

Philadelphia Pharmacy with senior Er- 
nie Bryant defeated N.A.C. in a return 
match on the victor's court 65-64. Ernie 
Bryant 6*5" center and Jerry Pflug S'S" 
guard did most of the damage with 18 
and 14 points respectively. Bryant sank 
all of his 8 foul shpts and this was the 
story of the game. Pharmacy hit 21 for 
the 28 at the free throw line while our 
Aggies were 10 for 21. 

Lou Furman, freeshman guard, was 
high man for the Aggies with 18. Cap- 
tain Dave Linde poured in 12 and cen- 
ter Wheeler Aman had 14. With eight 
seconds remaining in the game the Ag- 
gies brought the ball up the floor. They 
set Furman up for the shot but it was 
blocked and fell short of the hoop. Ag- 
gie fans seemed to feel that Furman was 
fouled but the referees said no and that 
was the game. Soph. Joe Morosky who 
came off the bench, contributed 17 re- 
bounds to the cause. It was Pharmacy's 
fourth victory of the year (4-10) while 
Aggies lost number fifteen.

Aggies Bow to 
Jersey City 

The Aggies closed their season on a 
losing note, dropping a 77 to 56 decision 
to Jersey City on the victor's court. TTie 
game marked the last final varsity ap- 
pearance of Captain Dave Linde and 
Senior play-maker Emory Markovic. 
Linde hit ofr 16 pointo to pace the Ag- 
gies. Wheeler Aman was the only other 
man to hit double figures with 12 points. 

Jersey City playing without two of 
their regulars depended on their "sharp 
shooting' Sesser Peoples. The flashy for- 
ward scored 19 points while Soph, cen- 
ter Qiris Mohr helped die cause with 17. 

One happy note for the future was die 
scoring power of the aggie bench. Widi 
two minutes remaining in the game, 
coach Chiodi put the sub^ into action. 
The remainder of the game saw John 
Bulette and John Van Vorst combine for 
13 points.

Aggies Finish Season With 5-16 Record 

Although our Aggies had a tough Basketball season there were 
many happy suprizes. One, was the fine J. V. record of 11-5. If Ais is 
any indication of future varsity teams we should see some exciting 
basketball in the future.

kovic, Robert Frantt, John Bulette, John Van Vorst, Richard Hillmann, Ray

Mertens and Dave Ruff. 

The Aggies will miss Captain Dave 
Linde and Emory Markovic who will 
both graduate in May. Wheeler Aman, 
Lou Furman, Bob Frantz, Joe Morosky, 
John Bulette, Dick Hillmann, Ray Ben- 
son, Bill Mertens, Dave Ruff, and John 
Van Vorst will all be returning next year. 

Much of the responsibility will fall on 
the shoulder of these men for a success- 
ful season next year. 

We would like to thank the men be- 
hind the "scene" for a wonderful job. 
Coach Chiodi did a fine job developing a 
young Aggie team. Assistant coac-n Jim 
Radcliff also did a fine job as his J. V. 
records show. We would also like to 
thank the man who has done so much

The whole squad would Hke to thank 
the Aggie rooters who followed their 
team faithfully. See you next year with 
some exciting basketball and what we 
here at school feel will be the team to 
win the Delaware Valley Conference.

Francra C. Brcmm (Mi), prmaident of Schenng Corporation, pnaenia the veterinary 
divimort§ "Sahnnmn ot the Year" award to Frank A. Germa during oeremorty at 
the Bloon^ld, N. J., Home Offica oi the cotz^mny. 

''Salesman of the Year" 

Frank A. Geraci of Saratoga Springs, 
New York (Crommelin Drive) today was 
named the "Salesman of the Year" in the 
veterinary division of Schering Corpora- 
tion, Bloomfield, New Jersey pharmaceu- 
tical manufacturer. Francis C. Brown, 
president of Schering, presented Geraci 
and his wife, Kathleen, with a trophy 
emblematic of the award, and an all-ex- 
pense trip to Nassau. 

Geraci received the award on the basis 
of his outstanding results in the year- 
long "Salesman of the Year" contest. The 
contest is governed by an index of 12 
sales factors computed on a national basis 
for all veterinary sales representatives. 

TTie original Schering veterinary rep- 
resentative in eastern New York State 
and Vermont, Ceracia has been associated 
with Schering since its veterinary divis- 
ion was organized in 1955. Prior to that, 
he was employed as a chemical salesman 
for Diversay Corporation in Newark, 
New Jersey. 

He holds a B. S. degree in animal hus- 
bandry, class of 1951 from the National 
Agricultural College in Doylestown, 
Pennsylvania. He has also taken courses 
in preventive medicine at Denver Uni- 
versity and in insect and rodent control 
at ;the Communicable Disease Center. 

Geraci, who served in the U. S. Air 
Force for four years, is a member of the 
National Association of Sanitarians. 

Following the presentation by Mr. 
Brown, the couple toured Schering's fa- 
cilities and were feted at a dinner in their 
honor. They will leave for a one week 
stay at the Emerald Beach Hotel in Nas- 
sau on Sui^ay, February 28, traveling 
by BOAC 707 jet from Idlewild Inter- 
national Airport. 


All National Agricultural College grad- 
uates will receive shortly a questioiniaire 
which answers are needed in preparation 
for our visit by the Middle States Asso- 
ciation of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools. This information will help the 
future of National Agricultural College 
planning for proposed majors in areas 
other than ardculture and the sciences. 

It is urged mat all graduates complete 
fullv the questionnaire and mail it to the 
College as soon as possible.

Band Concert 
Held at Vineland 

The N.A.C. Band played its first 
concert on Tuesday evening March 15 at 
the State School for Women in Vineland, 
New Jersey. The concert was conducted 
by Mr. Sockwell, the band director. 

The music consisted of a few marches 
to which Eleanor Walton twirled her ba- 
ton, and several standard numbers, such 
as "Margie" and "Who's Sorry Now." A 
novelty number entitled "Mexican Mom- 
bo," to which the band sang parts, was 
included along with a feature solo, "Clari- 
net Boogie," by Roger Blatt. Danny Whit- 
field's playing of "Have Horn Will Tra- 
vel" on his trumpet added a delightful 
addition to the concert. The program 
climaxed with the entire band playing 
several additional sel^tions.

The Sterling Forest Gardens will open 
to the public for the first time on May 1, 
1960, when more than one and a half 
million fidips, hyacinths, daffodils, and 
many other oulbs come into flower in the 
dramatic setting of lakes and woodlands. 

The gardens cover 125 acres and from 
spring through summer and into late fall 
c^er a splendor of blooms and new floral 
tlienies which will be introduced week 
after wek straight through the season for 
additional beauty.

Student C!ouncil 
Members Applaud 
Furrow Expccnsion Plan 

In the last issue of the Furrow a plan 
for the expansion of the student council 
was announced. This article caused some 
.comment annong the members of the Stu- 
dent Council. Tne following are the views 
expressed by the council members. 

President Ed Stickel-"The plan is good 
if not carried out too far. It would 
strengthen Council by closer contact with 
the student body." 

Senior Ron Liggett-"Goad in the sense 
that it will have closer contact between 
Council and the student body. But 
stronger representation should come from 
the classes. ' 

Senior Emery Markovic - "Good idea 
would have broader concept between 
Council and the student body." 

Junior Pat Milfried - "Bv representa- 
tives being there the clubs will have 
closer contact with Council." 

Sophomore Bob Frantz-"Good idea. It 
would have better representation of stu- 
dent body. Small representation from 
each class cannot give thejdea of what 
should be done."

Aggies + Talent - A-Day 

by Walt Whitman 

A-Day is just around the corner. Many Aggies are utilizing their spare 
time preparing exibits, fitting animals for show, and many other acbvi^ 
ties. This is the time of year that gives the students at N.A.C. an oppor- 
tunity to really show their stuff. 

Tliis is the time of year when all the 
skill, ingenuity, determination, stored 
knowledge, and just plain knowhow 
builds up and burets out almc»t over- 
ni^t from every direction. The hustle 
and bustle continues ri^t up to the last 
minute; and then, for two exciting days, 
the general public has the opportunity to 
witness, first haixl, the fruits of our ed- 
ucation here at N. A. C. 

Hard work and many houn of it is the 
price we pay for a successful A-DAY. But 
our rewani makes it all worth while. That 
reward ^. a large and imprest atten- 
daiKe along with a deep satisfaction and 
pride in our own contribution. Yes, it is 
an annual pleasure fully enjoyed by par- 
ticipants am) spectotors alike. It is an out- 
put of talent and complete cooperation 
between students and faculty that will be 
hard to match by other schools of our size. 
A pat on the back to the students, tiiree 
dieers for the faculty, and long live A-

Background of A-Day 

A-Day is a student-inspired id^ dating from 1948. It's program has 
grown yearly, it's attendance has numbered in the thousands yearly and 
the percentage of students participating has been high. 

Library Notes 

In the libraiy diese days the librar- 
ians have been making new lists of addi- 
tional books to be placed on die shelves. 
The addition which will be on the east 
side of die library is slated for construc- 
tion soon. TTiis wing alone will more than 
double the present size of the library. 

More reibreiKe boob we being m- 
dered from requests ot professors who 
responded to a memo from the library. 

A notice to all seniors: All semors must 

get a ckaraiK^ from the librarian for all 
brary kx)ks before gr^uation. 
Hie use of tiic library has increased 
frcnn the usuage per day erf last yelur. In 
die rast where approximately 70 students 
uMed the library each day, now more than 
100 come to study, research or glance at 
the new books coming in each week.

No Admission Charge 

The Ornamental Horticultural Society at the College is always one of the 
main attractions of "A" Day. Students in this field erect various types of 
Landscape Gardens, Retreats and create floral arrangements. These displays 
have been compared to those exhibited at the Philadelphia Flower Show, 
in a reduced area. 












Students in the Animal and Dairy Husbandry Departments participate in 
the showing of animals they have prepared for this event. There will be 
classes of Beef Cattle, Dairy Cattle, Sheep and Swine.

The programs have been planned and

mum of guidance from faculty and admin- 

One of the original major piu^ses of 
A-Day was to attract the local farmers. 
Past programs have not been successful 
to any extent in diis regard, and it s^ms 
(at least with the type of program which 
we now offer) that although we are glad 
to have local farmers attend, tlus is not 
a major objective. 

A-Day is by its very uttW) a demon- 
stration of die educational trd agricul- 
tural program as exj^essed ttirou^ the 
exhibits m the students. 

Parents and friends of the stu(knts and 
of the (X)llege greatly enjc^ s^ing the 
students in action on A-Day and attend 
in large numbers, to the great enjoyment 
of the students. Tliis is one of the great- 
&st incentives for the students to make a 
a success of the A-Day program. It should 
be maintained as a maj(»r objective. 

This is a real value to be derived from 
A-Day and this objective should be main- 
teinra and expaiuled, as this is the most 
spectacular program which the college 
produces and can be a growing source 
of publidty. 

The educational value of A-Day is 
three-fold, both for the student-partici- 
pants, for the other students and for the 
guests. We are concerned mainly with 
the edcational value derived by the in- 
dividual exhibit and feel that this type of 
educational objective should be a major 
purpose of die program. 

Aft E^bit for A-Day 

Mr. James O'Reilly special instructor 
of Art at N. A. C. is going to have ex- 
hibits by students of his art classes on 
A-Day. Among dio^ he mentions to be 
outstanding are the works of Joe Moors 
who has a "ReUef* to his credit and 
Tony Fritchey who has several oil paint- 
ings ccHnpleted and sand castings com- 
pleted. Lorenzo Fonseca is also going to 
display his acccnnplishn^nts. 

The Junior Om Hort majors who take 
Basic £^ign will display their Design 
notebooks ccmsisting of several of their 
projects. Odier exhibitors are those stu- 
dents in the Studio Art Class.

Choosing The ''Righf Major 

(Reprinted from the Ohio State Univeraity Publication "The Agricultural Student") 

By Frank Leuthold 

One out of three agricultural seniors have changed their major. What 
was in their backgrounds that might influence them to change? 

It was found that students who are farm-reared change majors less 
often than non-farm-reared students. This was also true for students with 
F.F.A. and 4-H Club experience. Farm-reared students also receive better 
grades than non-farm students. 

Farm-reared students make up a higher 
portion of the senior agricultural classes. 
In recent years approximately four out 
of ten agricultural freshmen were farm- 
reared, but seven out of ten present agri- 
cultural seniors were farm-reared. The 
decrease in proportion of non-farm-rear- 
ed students from agriculture is attributed 
to them having changed to other colleges. 
Many agricultural departments also have 
students from other colleges. Fourteen 
percent of these agricultural seniors origi- 
nally majored in colleges other than agri- 

Why do students change majors? Near- 
ly one-half replied that experience with 
course wrok is the main factor, either a 
lack of interest in course work in the old 
major or greater interest in the course 
work of the new major influenced stu- 
dents to change. 

This suggests that the departments do^ 
ing the best job of teaching introductory 
courses will receive most of the students 
who change majors. Job opportunities and 
work experience were other reasons, that 
influence students to change majors. 

A change in majors is not iMcessarily 
desirable or undesirable, but it does re- 
quire additional course work and time in 
some cases. Almost four out of ten stu- 
dents who change majors must take extra 
hours of course wrok. One out of four 
must attend at least one additional quar- 
ter before they graduate. The later the 
change is made in the college program, 
the greater the chances are that addi- 
tional college work will be required. 

It was thought that a student might 
be better able to choose the "right" ma- 
jor if he decided upon a career before 
selecting a college major. Of the agri- 
cultural sem'ors in the study only six out 
of ten have chosen any career. 

By the sophomore year seven out of 
ten students have declared a major, while 
only two out of ten have chosen a career 
at this time. This indicated that career 
choice has little effect upon the selection 
of a college major. If career choice does 
not guide the selection of a major, what 

It was found that seven out of ten sen- 
iors selected a major in a department 
with which he was familiar. Of the stu- 
dents who were not familiar with their 
original major, over half were not famil- 
iar with any other department. 

The students familiar with their origi- 
nal major were familiar with more than 
two departments. This indicates that for 
the majority of students there is little 
real choice for selecting a department 
major. On the average the agricultural 
seniors were familiar with less than two 
departments out of the twelve agricul- 
tural departments. It was also found that 
students unfamiliar with their original 
major, declared tl^ir major one quarter 
later. It seems thai a student's lack of 
knowledge concerning the requirements 
and opportunities of the various depart- 

ments delays the selection of a college 

There is a definite association between 
the number who were familiar with a 
department and the number in a depart- 
ment. Besides this, most agriciHtural de- 
partments show little change from the 
number of freshmen who are enrolled 
in the department to the number of sen- 
iors in the department. Most departments 
only gained or lost a few. The one ex- 
ception to this is the Department of Ag- 
ricultural Economics and Rural Sociol- 
ogy. This department shows twice as 
many seniors enrolled as were familiar 
with it as entering freshmen. 

Deciding on a major is an important 
decision for you. Although selecting a 
major does not completely govern the 
career you may choose, it does limit the 
career alternatives available. 

Students in selecting the "right" major 
should visit advisors of the various de- 
partments in which he is interested. The 
best way of finding out about the op- 
portunities in other departments is to 
investigate them yourself. There is no 
magical method whereby you can choose 
the right major. Only by assessing your 
ambitions, abilities and interests can you 
dedde what major is "right" for you.

History of Intramurals 

Tin' athletic program itself is generally 
divided into three seasonal groups of 
sports— fall, winter and spring. Each sea- 
sonal program includes hoth team and 
'individual competition sports. At the con- 
chision of each season a champion will 
he (1( tcrniined and trophies awarded. 
Team trophies will he presented in touch 
foothall, volley biill, basketball, and .soft- 
ball. Individual trophies will go to cham- 
pion.s in bowling, archery, table tennis, 
tennis, wrestling, and horse shoe pitch- 
ing. The presentation of these awards 
will he made at an AH-Intramural Sports 
Night when the individual championships 
will be nm off and several team all-star 
events held. 

Thus far the touch foothall trophy will 
eo to Dairy "A" the volleyball trophy to 
Ornamt ntal Horticulture. With the bowh 
ing .season drawing to a close Dairy "A ' 
is assured of 6rst place. Basketball was 
won by Hort in a playoff with An. Hus. 
A . 

Tlie intramural program thus far is a 
sound representative sampling of an ath- 
letic program but there are m\( more 
areas that may po.ssibly be included in 
the near future. Rifle facilities are now 
being gix en serious consideration with 
cooperation from the Bucks County 
Shooting Association. Any additional 
worthwhile suggestions from students 
will be welcome and given careful study. 

.With the opening of the new gym, the 
intrmaural sports program at N.A.C. was 
given a tremendous boost. Under the 
guidance of Mr. Ned Linta, intramural 
activities have reached an all time high 
in percentage of .students participating 
and in \ariety of activities offered. The 
success of the effort is seen by the wide- 
spread acceptance of the intramural 
sports program and the principles upon 
which it is based. 

The purpose of the intranmral sports 
progfam. as put forward in the tonstitu- 
tion of the Intramural Council, is to pro- 
mote participation according to indiv idual 
interests, to provide activities for all 
levels of skills, to provide competition, 
encouragement to maintain better health 
habits, to promote social contact, indi- 
vidiuil cooperation and self control, and 
physical development. These are, in a 
general way, some of the goals of the 
program and, while many are very high- 
sounding, it should be understood that 
marked success with students in anv one 
of these areas is justification enough for 
the program. Any student who has not 
read the con.stitution would \w amazed to 
discover the direct bearing it has on.most 
of his activity in intramural sports. 

Aggies Bow to Trenton 

N.A.C, op<'ned its season on a lossing 
note with a 11-5 loss to Trenton State 
Teachers College on Wednesday, April 
13th. If was Trenton's second win (2-0) 
and tl id time relief hiirler Ed Mor- 

ris has saved the day this year. The game 
sa wthe Aggies come from behind three 
times, only to have Trenton break the 
gaifle wide open in the 5th inning, when 
ten mei came up to the plate. 

One happy note for our team was 
short-stop Bill Shull's homer with no one 
on base. The ball sailed into a nearby 
corn field and was the longest hit hall 
of the day. 

Bill Cieorge was the los.sing pitcher. 
He was relieved by Mike Kopas in the 
5th inning after the basei were loaded.

A^^ies Nipped By Trenton 

Mr. Linta had every right to be proud of his Aggies today. The Aggies, 
featuring a very green bunch of boys, pulled a moral victory from the 
Trenton Teachers. The Aggies weren't supposed to do much this year. 
However the boys on the team had a 

different idea. They lost by a shm margin 
of em to 61X. 

Led by Van Vorst, Teller, Mertens 
and Wilson, who all scored 8 points 
apiece and Remsen, with 5, the Aggies 
did a tremendous job. Every boy on this 
team and the coaches deserve all the cred- 
it we can give them for all the hours of 
hard work and practice which went in 
to make this meet a sucess. 

. I'm sure we surprised Trenton. But 
this team deserves a little note for the fiiw 
sportsmanship shown at the meet. As a 
matter of fact the sportsmanship exhibit- 
ed by the Aggies was one of the finest 
exhibitions this writer has seen in a long 
time. As Grantland Rice once said, "It's 
not if you win or \me but how you 
played the game." The school can be 
proud of the way the boys acted. 

The spcnts staff wishes to thank the 
following profes.sors - Joe Fulcoly, as- 
sistant coach and referee. Timers Mr. 
GUck, Mr. Ferdo, Mr. Fulcoly, Mr. Web- 
ster, Mr. Km)rr, Mr. Forbes. Field judges 
Mr. Allyn. Inspectors Siatkowski, Mor- 
osky. Stem, Schultz, Kuhne, Mihlfried. 
Also to the Announcer Alvin Silverman. 
Official scorer Ross Koenig. Coordinat- 
ing runner Girard Stapleton, 


Mr. Schemieder said that this was the 
fa.stest he ever saw Joe Teller move. 

A wonderful turnout and fine sports- 
mamhip of the student body. 

Thanks to Mr. McGurk for all his time 
and effwt in handling the publicity. 

Next meet is at Lincoln April 26. 

Thanki is also due to Dean Meyer for 
all his help. 

As usual the Colonel was out to cheer 
the boys.

Reprinted from th« CONGRESSIONAL RECORD 
Proceeding* and Debate of the 86th Coagreu, Second Seuion 

Speech of HON. EVEREH McKINLEY DIRKSEN of Illinois 
in the Senate of the United Statet— Monday, January 11, 1960 

Mr. DIRKSEN. Mr. President, the present occupation of the Chair, 
the Senator from Ohio [Mr. Young] will be interested in at least the open- 
ing paragraph of my remarks. 

f believe it is in Adiland, Ohio, that 
there is a marker to Johnny "Applese^" 
Chapman. He was one of the dedicated 
persons who in the early days in tibe Mid- 
dle West, gathered and scattered appb 
seeds. Whi& others were foraging with 
guns and fighting with Indians, Johnny 
Appleseed" Chapman went about witn 
a canoeload of apple seed, if he could 
contrive it He left a very ridi l^ritage; 
and I suppose the genetic ctf spring of 
some of those apple trees are still ex> 
tant in the great Buckeye State, toge^er 
with the wholesome fniit they provide. 

It seems to me that in every genera- 
tion there are such people. They are un- 
selfish and devoted, even as Jtmnny Ap- 
pleseed was. 

I consider David Burpw, of Philadel- 
phia, a member of a long line of very 
distinguished seedsmen, as a person of 
that bnd. Interestingly enou^, he is a 
cousin of the late Luther Burbank. So, 
much of his life has b^n devoted to 
techniques which make the great com- 
plex of sun and soil and moisture pro- 
duce more abundantly, and even improve 
upon nature, and, particularly, produce 
flowers of great beauty and perfection. 
In so doing a vast improvement on natu- 
ral processes has been broudit about. 

For two generations, David Burpee has 
experimented with flowers, in the hope 
of producing one that is of American 
origin, and so hardy, so lovely, so easy 
to grow, so diffused, so long-blooming, 
that it might properly claim a place as 
the national floral emblem of this country. 

At long last, he felt that the marigold, 
a flower first discovered by the explorer 
Cortez in Mexico, the seeds of which 
Cortez took back to the Old World, was 
the flower that should rightly become our 
national floral emblem. 

I emphasize the term "our national 
floral emblem" because, of course, a floral 
emblem must be in the form of a flower. 
In the West they have been presenting 
the cause for the com tassle as the na- 
tional flower. I am not enough of a plant 
geneticist to knOw exactly whether it is 
a flower. The experts disagree about that. 

In any event, this flower from the New 
World, which was taken to the Old 
World, and improved upon, was in those 
days used for church functions and was 
called Mary's gold. SulMequently it be- 
came the marigold. 

I can say I have taken real deh^t in 
producing a few prize marigolds. 

Over the years, David Burpee has 
worked tirelessly to improve the marigold 
and develop greater ranges of color, 
larger flowers, greater hardiness, and foli- 
age with a more agreeable scent, so that 
it might with the least effort be produced 
in every part of the United States and be 
rightly considered as our national floral 

I am not insensible to the fact that 
selection of a flower as our national floral 
emblem has been a matter of high con- 
troversy. The rose, the carnation, a»e com 
tassel, the aster, and others have aU been 
advanced for consideration. 

I believe that an ontstanding seedsman 
and florist who has devoted incalcuable 
hours and untold sums of money to re- 
search in this field is fully entitled to 
have the product of a Uie^me of ^(»t 
properly considered. 

To tnat end, I assured him, when he 
was in my office, that by request, I would 
be glad to introduce a measui^ to desig- 
nate the marigold as our national flower.

How Mony Con You Driiric? 

Penn State University holds the 
"telephoiw booth cramming" re- 
<x)rd, and Rutgers University holds 
the "barrell rolling" record, so never 
let it be said that the National Ag- 
ricultural College doesn't bear some 
honor themselves. The student body 
of this institution can be proud of 
the fact that they represent a col- 
lege that has the distinction of hold- 
ing the "milkshake drinking" re- 

That record now stands at the unbe- 
lievable figure of ten. The name of the 
person that has the title of the "Milk- 
shake Kid" is being withheld from this 
article at his own request. 

You mi^t say that to go to Ed's Diner 
and drink ten milkshakes doesn't require 
too much effort. Did you ever try it? Lis- 
ten to a voice of experience and youll 
learn that it takes more intestinal forti- 
tude than m(Kt of the student body poss- 
esses. It has been tried by many students 
and proven time and time again that it 
can't be done. 

Those listed below, together with their 
score, attempted this feat in vain only to 
fall by the wayside.

Old and Nm 

Married life holds no threat to an Ag- 
gie, which will soon be proven by thirteen

Soph Improvement 
Program in Full Swing 

It seams as though the Sophomore 
Class Improvement Program is catching 
on to the rest of the campus. The Fresh- 
men have picked up the idea and meal 
time is loking much more handsome, 
since most of the students are wearing 

A couple of the students on the im- 
provement committee asked Mr. Miller 
about fixing the rock markers along the 
main campus roads. Mr. Miller cooper- 
ated very graciously by placing new 
stones along all the roads and having 
them painted white. 

The improvement committee along 
with other students of the sophomore 
class is going to seed the area in front of 
Elson Hall and between Elson Hall and 
the senior dormitory. 

The committee also thought of re- 
painting the name plaques on the var- 
ious trees around campus. Now these im- 
provements may seem small but they will 
definitely contribute to a better looking 

"A"-Day is almost here which means 
a lot of people, prospective students and 
friends of the family will be touring the 
campus. Although they will be mainly 
interested in the various exhibits, newly 
planted grounds and the freshly painted 
rocks and signs will xvclt go unnoticed. 

The committee was very gratified with 
all the cooperation that diey have been 
obtaining from everyone. Tney all hope 
that the enthusiasm tlw students have 
will not die, Iw^cause although you can 
already see definite improvements, you 
can iM)t expect things to happen over

George Named 

by Jerry Mulnick 

"I know that witliout the training I 
have received here at N.A.C. it would be 
impossible for me to be the success I 
someday hope to be." These are the words 
of William L. George, Valedictorian of 
the Class of '6p. 

Bill was bom June 1, 1938, in River- 
side, New Jersey. He has resided most of 
his life in Vcverly, directly across the 
Delaware River from Philadelphia. He at- 
tended grade school in Delanco and is a 
graduate of Palmyra High School. (Bill 
fs a second cousin of another Palmyra 
graduate, last issue's Honor Aggie, Ed 
Stickel). Bill Maintained a high academic 
average throughout high school. He was 
a member of the Honor Society and was 
President of his class in his junior year. 
He once had an ambition to become a 
poultry farmer. His ambition later 
changed to agricultural engineering. But 
this ambition also faded when Bill was 
nvcmimonded to attend N.A.C. as he did. 

B\ the time lie was a Sophomore Bill 
decided to major in the subject he knew 
he could excel in. Horticulture. Bill has 
been Vice President of the Class of '60 
for three vears, Secretary-Treasurer of 
the Hort. Club for three years, a member 
of the Hort Judging Team in his junior 
year and is a n)ember of the varsity club. 
But the most spectacular item on Bill 
George is the fabulous 3.89 average 
which he has achieved from his freshman 
ye«r up to tlie first semester of his senior 
year. This is certainly a record to be 
proud of and is the main reason why Bill 
is Valedictorian of his class. 

During the last three summers Bill 
worked in the research department of 
the Campbell Soup Co., Riverton, N. J. 
Here he tested tomato, potato and car- 
rot varieties as to yield, a}lor, disease 
resistance, etc.

New Magazine for 
''College Eggheads'' 

Seeks Contributors 
and Correspondents 

Colla^, a magazine subtitled "Enter- 
tainment and Enlightenment for College 
Eggheads," will appear at college book- 
stores and newstands across the country 
this September. According to the editor- 
publisher David Preiss, Collage will be 
the first serious magazine dedicated to 
the nation's college audience. 

Preiss believes Collage will become as 
popular with students as College Humor, 
a national magazine which aroused great 
campus enthusiasm during the 20's and 
30's but did not return after World War 
II. He adds, "We do not intend to mimic 
College Humor or any other magazine; 
it is our belief that college students to- 
day are interested in more intelligent and 
creative extracurricular pursuits and will 
read and contribute to a magazine they 
can respect, identify with and afiFord." 

The staff is presently overstocked with 
fiction, poetry and humorour works, but 
they seek non-fiction dealing with the 
arts, academics, athletics and one 5,000- 
word survey of the benefits, drawbacks 
and pecularities of a specific college or 
university. They will also reproduce un- 
published works of art in any medium by 
nationally unknown arti^.

Mascot Named 

Our college mascot was named Satur- 
day evening at the varsity club square 
dan(% held in the new gym. The winner 
of the Furrow's $10.00 cash prize was 
John Hobn from the class of '61. The 
wiiming name for the ram is Ceasar. 
Because this is the first mascot the ram 
will thus be called; Ceasar the 1st. 

At this time the editor of the Furrow 
would like to thank all the students, fac- 
ulty and the many alumni who responded 
tf) this contest. From them many entries 
received by the Judges, Dr. Pelle, head of 
the Animal Husbandry department, Mr. 
McGurk, public relations, and three stu- 
dents, Edward Stickel President of the 
Student Council, and Joe Exley and Dave 
Kantner both seniors majoring in animal 
husbandry, narrowed the names to five. 
Ceasar was the final choice after miuh 

Jobs in Chicago 

A campaign to encourage college grad- 
uates to come to Chicago immediately 
upon ^aduation for many "new and old" 
job opportunities, was launched today by 
the Zinser Personnel Service, 79 West 
Monroe St., Chicago. 

Mrs. Anne V. Zinser, director, said 
that the Chicago area is booming with 
employment opportunities for bom men 
and women. 'Here is the place where 
college graduates with proper guidance 
can get a moving start in applying their 
educational training to a successful ca- 
reer," Mrs. Zinser said. "We want to help 
graduates to find their right place in the 
business world," she added. 

Counselors of the personnel service are 
geared to help college men and women 
to (1) bridge the gap between school and 
the job; (2) constat on job opportunities 
now available; (3) encourage creative 
thinking; (4) interpret new job opportun- 
ities in new industries; (5) interpret em- 
ployer attitudes, and (6) discus; eadi stu- 
dent's background, personal interest, 
training and education for a specific job. 

"We know the employers* thinking. 
Our assignment right now is to find the 
right people for the many jobs available 
in the business and protesstonal fields," 
Mrs. Zinser said. 

The Zinser Personnel Service has help- 
ed over 100,000 men and women to ca- 
reer opportunities since its 1922 found- 
ing. It represents over 10,000 employer- 
clients in the Chicago area alone, and 
works with many colleges and universi- 
ties on the placement of their graduate.

One of the most industrious students 
on this campus in the past four years has 
l^en Harold Dietrich. "Zeke" as every- 
one calls him was born in Philadelphia 
in 1938. He presently resides at 168 Eas- 
ton Road, Horsham, Pa. 

Befon» attending N.A.C. he went to 
Hatboro Horsham High where he gradu- 
ated in 1956. He ranked 10th in his class 
of 89 students. In the 12th grade he re- 
ceived the Crooked Billets award for 
showing greatest improvement in attitude 
and cooperation toward school affairs. 

Here at N.A.C. "Zeke" has shown out- 
standing ability on the An. Hus. Judging 
team. He is also known for his huge ap- 
petite and eating contests that he has 

"Zeke" is one of tlie few students that 
has worked his way through college do- 
ing odd jobs and still maintaining a res- 
pectable acedemic average. 

"Zekes" warm smile and calm dispo- 
sition have made many friends for him at 
N.A.C. and in Doylestown. Above all 
"Zeke" has always been a gentleman and 
a great guy to be around. 

The Furrow is taking this opportunity 
to extend g()(xl wishes to you, Harold

After graduation Bill will attend Rut- 
gers graduate school on a graduate as- 
sistantship (doing research for the Hort. 
Dept.) and will major in Plant Breeding 
and minor in Plant Physiology. He plans 
to go on to his Ph.D and to continue to 
do research for private industry. 

Bill's hobbies consist of baseball, foot- 
ball, and hunting. He also enjoys deep 
sea fishing. However, the thought upper- 
most in Bill's mind right now is his forth- 
coming marriage May 21, to Miss Marilyn 
Richard of Riverside, New Jersey. 

The staff of the Furrow and students 
of N.A.C. would Uke to congratulate Bill 
George on his achievements and we

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

I see by your Editorial that you 
are having problems with campus 
and off-campus dress and manners. 

I take exception to your Editor- 
ial itUiminating that you do not like 
to be called "farmers." 

You see, I was a member of the 
class of 42, before the time you 
became an accredited college. W^ 
were farmers then and a good manu 
of us are stUl farmers. It is with 
pride that I point out to uou that 
to be called or knoton as a farmer is 
not derogatory for Farmers belong 
to a select group of individuals and 
are members in a genuine society 
having one of the most honest ana 
honorable ways of life in the world. 

I take pride in the fact that my 
Alma Mater was the National Farm 
School and that as a restdt, I stiU 
associate with farmers as an Engi- 
neering Specialist with the Soil 
Conservation Service, U. S. Depart- 
ment of Agriculture. Also t have 4 
children growing up in a rural com- 
munity. (My oldest daughter has 
just married a dairu farmer) My 13 
year old son has 3 horses, 4 heifers, 
and 2 hunting dogs, my youngest, 
age 6, is an expert horseman. I also 
take pride in the fact that I am a 
4-H Horse Club leader with 30 
children between 10 and 17. In ad- 
dition, I am President of the Salem 
County Agriculture Fair. You see 
these activities are with and for 

If the present student body re- 
sents being caUed "farmers" per- 
haps they have not dressed and 
acted in a manner which would 
credit either the college or the 
farming profession. 

Perhaps if some of these things 
were pointed out to the present stu- 
dents they might see fit to operate 
in a manner which would bring 
credit to them and their select fu- 
ture profession, which is the basis 
of any country s prosperity.

Aggies Defeat Phila* Pharmacy 

In the Aggies first encounter with P.C.P, April 28 at the Central Bucks 
High School field it took a 6 run seventh inning rally to ice the game for 
the Aggies. After a rocky start Aggie pitcher, Bill George, who gave up a 
grandslam home and a total of 6 runs in the first three innings, shut the 
door on Pharmacy. 

He gave up one more run in the 
last inning. Some timely Aggie hits 
and Pharmacy errors made it a tie 
ball game after 4 innings. 

The game remained tied until the Ag- 
gies showed a tremendous display of hit- 
ting power with their 6 run rally. To 
start the inning Pete HoflFman was hit 
by a pitch. Ken Johnson walked and Bill 
Kennedy hit a base clearing triple. Then 
Ron CuUana tripled, Bill ShuU singled 
and Emery Markovic capped the rally 
with a two run homer. 

The Aggies first four batters accounted 
for 10 of the 11 hits. Kennedy and ShuU 
had 3 apiece. Guliana and Markovic two 

Note: Freshman outfield Ron Guliana 
has iiad 12 hits in his first 16 appearances 
to the plate. 

The Aggies now stand 2-1 in the Del- 
aware Valley Conference. Another vic- 
tory over P.C.P. would clinch a confer- 
ence co-championship.

Aggies Trample 

The Aggies ended their first track sea- 
son on a winning notevlast Wedn^ay by 
romping to a 88-43 victory over Kutztown 
State Teachers College. The team led by 
next year's running captain, John Van 
Vorst, who was a triple winner in the 
one mile, 880 yd. run, and the two mile, 
exhibited fine times and distances in all 

Sophomore Bill Wilson, ran his spe- 
cialty, the low hurdles for the fifth time, 
never to be beaten. Bill also won the 120 
yd. high hurdles to become the Aggies 
first double winner. Other first place win- 
ners were Max Heflich in the 440 yd. 
dash, Joe Teller in the 220, John Hobn in 
the shot, and a tie for first place in the 
high jump between Jim Roland and 
"Wild" BiU Mertens. 

At this time recognition is due to all 
the boys who participated on this years 
team: Chuck Meyers, Steve Colbum, 
Arnold Radi, Bob Sabol, Ron Cole and 
Gary Stapleton were the distance runners. 
While "Butch" Agnew, Ken Roinos, Al 
Hanser ran the middle distance events. 

In the field events Dave Martin, and 
Carl Bayha pole vaulted. Tony Remson 
and Jim Polam high jumped. Bill Hop- 
kins, Ned Guardnier participated in Jave- 
lin and Shot Put. 

In the hurdles Terry Scheetz and Doug 
Brown got the Aggies their needed points. 

Senior running captain Frank Radican 
helped jell the nucleus for next year's 
team with all of his fine abilities along 
with senior manager Al Silverman. 

Aggies Split with Rutgen 

N.A.C. won their first game of the sea- 
son as they spht a pair vdth Rutgers of 
South Jereey in Camden, N. J. Mike Ko- 
pas pitched a four hitter to lead the Ag- 
gies to a 6 to 4 win in the opener. Tlie 
Aggies weren't as fortunate in the night- 
cap as they went down in defeat 10 to 3. 

Kopas one of the finest pitchers to 
come along for our Aggies in recent years 
had a no hitter for 4 1/3 innings until he 
fell victim to a infield scratch single. Ron 
Guliana, freshman centerfielder had 4 for 
5 in the first game and 3 for 3 in the 
nightcap, to raise his average to a respect- 
able .458. 

Senior Emory Markovic had a fine day 
at the plate with 2 RBI's and 3 hits out 
of 6 trips to the plate.

The Contemporary Club was honored 
on Thursday, April 28, I960 with a guest 
speaker, Mr. Teller an outstanding author 
and also father of sophomore student Joe 
Teller. Bud Charlick President of the club 
invited Mr. Teller to speak on one of his 
latest books but due to so much enthu- 
siasm shown by the clubs members, time 
didn't allow for it. 

The topic of discussion ranged from the 
educational systems of South America to 
the beat generation. A wide range of 
opinions and comments were expressed 
quite vividly. 

At the request of Mr. Forbes the club 
faculty advisor; ^r. TeUer has agreed to

Welcome To Delaware Valley College 

Nome Changed To Delaware VaUoy 
College of Scieoce and Agricnltnre 

The National Agricultural College changed its name to Delaware 
Valley College of Science and Agriculture on September 20th. It was 
appropriate that the new name become effective September 20th since 
on that date the incoming freshman class, the first group of students to 
pursue their four-year study programs under the new name began their 
college orientation. 

Eight Faculty Acquire 
New Offices 

Offices for eight faculty members and 
a faculty conference room will be pro- 
viaed here at the college, under plans 
to refurbish Lasker Hall. The work rep- 
resents the first step in the modernization 
of the building which will house^ in time, 
all administrative and faculty offices. Un- 
der the College's development program, 
(Continued on page 2) 

The new name reflects the important 
changes in curriculum which have al- 
ready taken place and those proposed for 
the next few years. The college has ad- 
ded majors in biology and chemistry and 
plans to incorporate majors in the fields 
of busings and liberal arts. 

Since its inception in 1896 the school 
has now undergone three name changes 
tn indicate significant changes in its pro- 
grams. All three changes have t^en 
place under the administration of Presi- 
dent Work who was elected to his post 
in 1945 and pioneered the development 
of the institution to fuU collegiate rank 
in 1948 as National Agricultural College. 
During its transitional years from 1946 
to 1948 it was known at National Farm 
School and Junior College. 

In announcing the new name President 
Work said that it repr^ents the begin- 
ning of a new era of service by the Qcl- 
lege to the higher educational needs of 
one of the nation's most rapidly develop- 
ing areas. He emphasized that the College 
would always retain its agricultural ma- 
jors and encourage research in this vital 
field, "With this in mind," President Work 
said, "our plans were laid several years 
ago and carefully implemented to build 
lAfisely and well botn in our physical 
development program and our educa- 
tional programs." While D.V.C. is the 
only college located in Bucks County, 
where great population growih has been 
noted in the past decme, the present 
five-year development program and those 
envisioned for me future will enable the 
school to keep pace with the needs of the 
area for an institution with broad degree- 
granting powers for both men and wo- 

New Chemistry Lab. 

Construction of new chemistry labora- 
tory facilities, which will provide more 
than 2,900 square feet of floor space, has 
been virtually completed at D.V.C. Presi- 
dent James Work, said that the enlarge- 
ment of science facilities is a major part 
of the College's current development pro- 
gram and that the new laboratories rep- 
resent the initial phase of a planned re- 
furbishing of the AUman Administration 
Building where all chemistry clasa-ooms 
and lalxwatoriis will be located. 

The new facilities, which more than 
double existing laboratory area, will be 
located on the ground floor of the All- 
man building and include laboratories 
for general chemistry, organic chemistry, 
analytical chemistry, and physical and 
advanced chemistry. Also included are 
an analytical balance room with sufficient 
space for twelve instruments, a chemical 
storage room, and a supply room. 

President Welcomes New Faculty 

Left to right, Pnmdent Jatma Work, Boyd W. Glmrring, Jr., Clarinet B. 
SteirAeri, and Ronald C. Deering. 

President James Work, umounced the 
appointment of three new faculty mem- 
bers and a change of status from part- 
time to full-time for two others in pre- 
paration for the College's largest enroll- 
ment to date. Appointed to the post of 
assistant professor of Biology was Ronald 
C. Deering; to the post of assistant pro- 
fessor of agronomy was Boyd W. Gner- 
ing, Jr. and to that of instructor of En- 
glish was Clarence B. Steinberg. Raised to 
full-time status were James H. Popham as 
assistant professor of mathematics, and 
John W. Taylor as assistant professor of 
physics. The new appointments bring the 
number of faculty to fortv-four. 

Mr. Deering, is a graauate of Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology where 
he majored in chemistry and carried a 
minor in biochemistry. He comes to 
D.V.C from Nasson College in Spring- 
vale, Maine, where he was assistant pro- 
fes.sor of biology from 1954 to 1959. He 
has abo taught at St. Louis University 
and at the University of Pennsylvania. 

Mr. Ghering, a graduate of Pennsyl- 
vania State University where he received 
both his B.S. and M.S. degrees, waf 
formerly professor of agronomy at the 
William H. Miner Agricultural Research 
Institute at Chazy, New York. A mem-

Praise from Chamber 
of Commerce 

Soon the term Farm School will be a 
designation of the past. Of course it's 
heritage and fond m^nories will be for- 
gotten by the men who attended it or 
others who were closely associate to the 

Probably any student who attended the 
college while it was under the name of 
National Agricultiiral College will agree 
that he was to as one of the fellows m)m 
the Farm School. Reference to the Farm 
School and National Agricultural College 
are fading into oblivion, giving rise to the 
newly formed Delaware Valley College. 

At the last Chamber of Cmnmerce 
meeting Frank X. Shelley, the president, 
praised the progress made by the college. 

Mr. Shelley said: 

The ann(mncenient of the change of 
the name of the Natk)nal Agricultural 
College to the Delaware Valley CoUege 
of Science and Agriculture adds anodier 
piece to the emerging picture of a rapidly 
growing Bucks county."

consistendy cooperated with loctJ sarvice 
groups to provide speakers and ev^i 
meeting facilities. 

In conclusion he statoi that "the Doy- 
lestown Chamber of CfMoamen^ is protui 
to direct attention to the beautiful cam- 
pus and the impressive new structures. 



Pag* Two 



"What's new?"— a hadcneyed question that usually is answered with 
a non-commital "Not much." But the student body returning to campus 
this year finds that much is new. Since 18^ when the National Fann 
School was founded the trustees have been alert to the need for the new 
to improve the old. In this respect 1960 is a banner year in the life of 
the college. 

"What's new?"— Two dormitories on the growing list of campus build- 
ings. They are necessary to house the st^idily increasing enrollment. The 
freshman ckss in 18^ numbered six. The fr^hman class of 1960 has in 
it 160 members. In order to meet the needs of the enlarged student body 
five new teachers have been added. The new courses and broader edu- 
cational ideas have also made this increase of faailty essential. Last year 
two faculty houses were completed to accommodate the growing teach- 
ing staflF. This year two apartments have been added to the faculty hous- 
ing facilities. 

Noticed also by the observer will be the new look of the campus. 

The appearance has been much improved by the addition of shrubs, 
walks, roads and most of all, perhaps large expanses of lawn. New tennis 
courts are available for those interested. 

The gym, new last year, has not been neglected. It has a new floor 
dressing, clock, and mats. A new enlarged list of intercollegiate and intra- 
mural athletic events have been added. 

One of the biggest changes is the metamorphisis of the parking lot 
from a conglomeration of stone, pebbles, dust, and debris to a smooth 
elegant hard top lot. Needless to say there are several new cars among the 
older familiar ones. 

New teadiers, new students, new ideas and courses, new buildings 
and building improvements — that's a lot of newness. But what's new 
tpday will be old tomorrow unless it is taken care of. It is up to us 
students to cooperate with the faculty and trustee in their effort to 
constantly improve the college. After all it is we who will be getting 
degrees. It is we who will be the alumni. What we are the alumni of, 
'depends a good deal on our attitude and actions durii^ the years we 
attend college, what ever the number be. 

Agriculture has become a comphcated, diversified and scientific study, 
demanding the best in teachers and equipment. Our college has grown 
from it's original beginning as the National Farm School to a fine scientific 
and agricultural college and so perhaps the most fitting change is our 
new ofiBdal name, from. National Agricultural College to Delaware Valley 
College of Science and Agriculture. 

The philosophy of the old Farm School has been retained and de- 
veloped for 64 years. Delaware Valley S and A wiU continue to "develope 
character, tolerance, and the ability to think"— an old philosophy which 
will help us do new things.

1913 Farm School Graduate 

Dr. Louis I. Helfand who graduated in 
1913 (in the same class as ft-esident 
Work) helped out in the Food Industry 
exhibit on A-Day 1960 last May. He 
showwl a fihn from the United States 
Department of Agriculture entided, "Your 
Meat Inspection Service." It is Dr. Hel- 
fand's intention to show this or a similar 
film during A-Day 1961. 

It is Dr. Helfuid's ambition to secure 
for A-Day 1961 a display from the Meat 
Inspection Division in Washhigton. Dt. 
Turner has written to Washington for this

The Buay Freahmen 
"Bemmeif' — and Signa 



Some members of the freshman class have questioned why they are 
being asked to participate in certain traditions of this college. This article 
is intended to explain the value of these traditions. Freshman customs are 
intended for the benefit of the freshman students and the college. 

If freshman students note on the list 
of customs that they were given, there 
is nothing that can possibly do physical 
harm to them. 

The first and most prominent mark of 
a freshman on the campus of the Dela- 
ware Valley College S&A, is the card- 
board sign that he proudly wears. This 
sign gives practically all the necessary 
information about him that could be de- 
sired. The purpose behind this sign is 
the most important of all customs. It 
allows his classmates, his upperclassmen. 
and his professors to become aquainted 
with him more rapidly. 

Then there is the traditional "beany." 
This along with learning the Alma Mater, 
the college cheers, and the building of a 
bonfire, is intended to establish a school 
spirit among the freshmen. The purpose 
of this is to make him feel proud of this 
institution of which he is now a part. 

Learning discipline and respect for pro- 
fessors and upperclassmen is the value 
that stems from addressing these people 
as "Sir." To some extent, Ginkgo Lane 
has the same purpose. 

Wearing neckties and jackets should 
have an obvious material value. A neat 
appearance plays a very essential roll on 
me college campus. 

All freshman students are expected to 
abide by these traditions. There is only 
one direction that this College is headed 
. . . forward. The freshmen, the largest 
class can really help achieve this goal, 

by becoming a part of the college and ROGER W. KRAUT 

forwarding her good name and traditions. 

Freshman customs are intended to help JEWELER 

the newcomers become a part of the stu- 
dent body.

Mr. McNally, who received bodi his 
Bachelor of Music degree and Master of 
Education degree widi a music major 
from Boston University, directed the Bos- 
ton U. Marching Band in 1949-50. While 
a student at Alexander Hamilton Hi^ 
School in Brooklyn, New York, he was 
active with the school's band, orch^tra, 
dance band, and brass choir as well as 
the football, baseball, and track teams. 
His extra-curricular activities at Boston 
University included dramatics, opaa, 
football, and swimming. 

(Continued on page 4) 

I welcome all of the returning upper classmen and 
all of our new students to the College. 

Since my welcome of last year many changes have 
taken place in the College - a new name, new dormitories, 
new laboratories - and a number of fine additions to 
the faculty. 

We visualize the coming year embracing many more 
advances. We hope to have under construction a Student 
Union Building and two new dormitories. We now have 
four hundred and five students - we look for four 
hundred and fifty in the next College year. 

All of these things have been and will be 
accomplished by "hitching your wagon to a star" - as I 
hope every one of you will do in your own lives.

Open Fri. & Sat. from 8 p.m. 

Once again "The Furrow" takes time 
to honor a student whose efforts have 
been of great benefit to our college, his 
class, and to himself. In this issue we 
bestow the honor upon Wesley Ben Merz. 

Wes was bom in Oakland, Calif, in 
1939. Six years later he and his family 
moved to meir present residence in Penn 
Valley, Narbeth, a suburb of Philadelphia. 
The senior Mr. Merz is an industrial en- 
gineer. Wes* mother is a housewife: his 
brother attends Harriton High School. 
Wes is a graduate of Lower Merion High 
School where he participated in varsity 
lacrosse, track, and crew. 

Here at D.V.C. Wes is a senior major- 
ing in Poultry Husbandry. Wes has been 
treasurer of me Poultry Club for the past 
three years and has been on the Povfltry 
Judging Team in his sophomore and jun- 
ior years. He has also been a member of 
the Dairy Society, Animal Husbandry 
Club, The Gleaner, and The Furrow. He 

has been of great help to his classmates 
as Dance Committee chairman each year. 

Wes is the current Student Government 
President. He has represented his class 
for the past two years on the Student 

Although Wes has been an active mem- 
ber in extra-curricular activities he has 
maintained a hi^ enough average to 
place him on the Dean's List. 

During his sophomore and junior years 
Wes worked for Wyeth Laboratories in 
Radnor, as a research aid and general 
laboratory technician. Wyeth is a manu- 
facturer of general pharmaceuticals and 
antibiotics. Wes did some work on cancer 
research this past summer and following 
a post graduate tour of Europe he hopes 
to resume his research. He plans to at- 
tend the University of Pennsylvania grad- 
uate school of Liberal Arts. Eventually 
Wes intends to work his way up to an 
executive position within the pharmaceu- 
tical or chemical industries. 

Wes enjoys jazz (Simone), show music, 
painting (modem), poetry (Frost plays), 
and sailing on the Chesapeak Bay. He is 
an ardent believer in strong and efficient 
student government and in good interna- 
tional relations between these future 
world rulers of tomorrow. 

When asked if he had any particular 
advice to pass on to the underclassmen 
he repUed by quoting Oscar Wilde, 
"Pleasure is the only thing worth having 
a theory about."

may Jbe taken at 11 a.m. on Saturday to be returned Sunday evening at 
6 P.M. They may be signed up for at the Circulation Desk. 

BUT BEWARE! The fine for overdue 
Reserve Books is very stiff — 10^ an hour 
or any fraction of an hour the book is 
overdue. Don't take a book home for 
the weekend, unless you are going to be 
back by 6 p.m. Sunday evening. Reserve 
Books must be in the Library for every- 
one's use whenever the Library is open. 

This is an experiment and overnight- 
loan privileges will be discontinued if 
they are abused. 

Are you interested in having a Student 
Library Committee? Such a Committee 
would be your spokesman if you have 
suggestions of books you would like to 
see in the Library, questions about lib- 
rary mles, or if you just want to air a 
gripe. Mrs. Cojtman promises that each 
suggestion or criticism will be carefully 

The Faculty Library Committee is the 
liaison between the Faculty and the lib- 
rary. A Student Library Committee could 
be just such a haison between the stu- 
dents and the library, and would help 
the library staff to make the Library use- 
ful and attractive to the students. If you 
are interested, contact Wes Merz, Presi- 
dent of the Student Council, or speak to 
Mrs. Coltman in the library. 

The hbrary has added 470 new books 
over the summer months. Many of these 
have been additions to the reference 
shelves in the humanities. Several collec- 
tions of pla^/s — many of them recent 
Broadway hits — have been added, and 
Mr. and Mrs. Roger Mason of Perkasie 
have made us a gift of Grove's Dictionary 
of Music and Musicians. 

Four excellent biographies are on the 
shelf of new books-Elizabeth Nowell's 
Thomas Wolfe, Norman Cousin's Dr. 
Schweitzer of Lambarene, The Shining 
Brow, the biography of Frank Lloyd 
Wright, by his wife, and Elizabeth Ser-

held his position throughout the remain- 
der of the race, placing first with a time 
of 29.5. Following Van Vorst was the

Aggies Bew to Cheyney 

The Cross Coimtry team entered their 
tiiird meet of the season on October 18, 
at< Cheyney State College. The young 
team did a fine job against the veteran 
teacher squad. 

The fii^t three runners who crossed 
the finish line in the five mile course (in 
a tie) were from Cheyney. Tlje time was 
29.36 minutes. Aggie captain John Van 
Voret arrived foui^ with a time of 30.0. 
He was followed by two men who have 
shown much improvement and promise; 
they are Arnold Radi and Ron Cole both 
juniors. Two new freshman hopefuls that 
also participated were Joe Curtis and 
Conrad Fisher. 

Highlights of Cheyney Meet 
The Aggies did manage to set a sort 
of unofiicial record. Tom Napier, a fresh- 
man running in his first and last X-Coun- 
try meet after joining the team late, had 
the misfortune of getting lost. It seems 
like Tom didn't make the turn at the 
right comer since he was behind the rest 
of the team and dius couldn't see where 
they turned. 

Well Tommy set a new record of two 
hours aiul some minutes for a new 15 
mile Cross Coimtry Course at Cheyney. 
Needless to say there was near panic 
by the coach and half the searching 
team. Departure finally came; the team, 
Tom, and Coach Linta with several more 
gray hairs.

To All Students: 

By the unanimous decision of the Exec- 
utive Council of the Student Government, 
RULES OF DRESS have been drawn 
up, and will be enforced by them. These 
regulations apply to all students of Dela- 
ware Valley College of Science and Agri- 

TTiey are: 

1. All students will be required to 
wear sport jackets and collared 
shirts to all evening meals and 
Sunday dinners. 

2. Work clothing including dungar- 
ees, uncoUared sweat shirts and 
tee shirts, are not to be worn to 
any college function, classes, meals 
and sports events. 

3. Students are expected to change 
immediately before and after all 
laboratories requiring work cloth- 
ing. It is further suggested to wear 
lab. aprons to ehminate work 

The reason that these regulations have 
been drawn up is because a large per- 
centage of the students have asked that 
thev be made. Let us all cooperate and 
mate it an individual responsibility, so 
that we may continue to build the reputa- 
tion of Delaware Valley College of Sci- 
ence and Agriculture. 

The RULES OF DRESS become effec- 
tive on October 17, 1960. 

Any questions concerning these regu- 
lations may be referred to Kirk Brown, 
Chairman of the Clothing Committee.

Aggies Defect Lincoln 

The Delaware Valley Aggies sewed an 
impressive 21-8 victory over Lincoln Uni- 
versity on the loser's grounds on Satur- 
day, October 1, to notch tiheir second 
straight football succeiss of die season. 

Two interceptions and a recovered 
fumble put the Aggies in business each 
time. They scored twice in the second 
period ana once in the third. 

Pat Mihlfried fell on a Lincoln fumble 
on the latter's one yard line to set up the 
first score, Ron Stein plimged over on Ae 
next play. 

A few moments later, Daryl McCrabe 
intercepted a pass from the arm of Lin- 
coln quarterback Horace Judson and re- 
ttmied it to the Lincoln 39. Six plays 
moved the ball to the 10 and Vem Brown 
carried it the rest of the way on an end 

Judson had another of his aerial at- 
tempts intercepted in the third quarter. 
The Aggies Wheeler Aman grabbed this 
one at midfield and was downed imme- 
diately. It took the Aggies 11 plays to 
hit paydirt with Brodie Crawford going 
over from the one yard line for the score. 

Lincoln's long tally came in the final 
period when Judson raced 25 yards.

Democratic Vote Getters 

William R. Wister, Jr. and FranUin L. 
Kury, co-chairmen of the Pennsylvania 
Stuaents for Kennedy and Johnson, today 
initiated an intensive educational pro- 
gram to explain absentee balloting to 

"Many students will find themselves 
away from home on el^Hion day, but 
everyone who is registered can vote by 
making use of tiie absentee ballot." 

'Teimsylvania's recent absentee bal- 
lot law is a great advance toward the 
democratic selection of ofiBce holders. 
However, no law, no matter how good, 
is effective unless it is used. The stu- 
dents," they explained, "must apply for 
an al^entee ballot in order to exprea 
their penonal dioice of candidate." 

HOMKOMING (Continued) 
Also during half time the Varsity Club 
and Band will honor former Aggies foot- 
ball captains. Twenty- five of me 37 liv- 
ing ex-captains are expected to be pres- 
ent for this observance. 

The Alumni will be the guests of the 
Varsity Club at a "Green and Gold 
Dan<»" that will be held in the gym 
Saturday night. Music will be supplied 
by the Dan Napier Band. This should 
prove to be a gala and memorable event 
for all who Attend. A very unique feature 
attraction during intermissions will be a 
mens fashion show. Through the courtesy 
of Ely's Clothier's of Doylestown, the 
latest in Ivy League fashions will be 
modeled by members of the varsity dub.

ter explained the procedure for absentee 

"The student attending college away 
from home and who is registered to vote 
should make application for an absentee 
ballot from the Chief Clerk of the Coun- 
ty Board of Elections in his home com- 
munity within tliirty days preceding the

tual al»entee ballot, with instructions." 

Kury and Wister stressed the fact that 
the outcome of this election will greatly

Homecoming Events Are Great Success 

125 Alumni Registered 

Green and Gold Dance End Day's Activities 

Friday night members of the varsity club put the finishing touches 
on the decorations for the Green and Gold Dance which was held Sat- 
urday night. 

TTie cause of the dance was D.V.C.'s homecoming day. However, the 
dance was only a part of the events that took place. 
At 10 o'clock, Saturday October 29, 

members of the Alumni began to register 
in the administration building. There 
were 125 members >*^io registered. It is 
also believed that quite a few didn't reg- 
ister, which brings the total number of 
alumni present to well over 125. 

At 11 o'clock the new dormitories, 
which have been refered to as A and B, 
were dedicated under the names of Cooke 
Hall and Bamess Hall. Mr. Morris H. 
Goldman of the Board of Trustees intro- 
duced all the honored guests, among 
which were Herbert and Dr. Lewis Bar- 
iiess and Samual Cooke, sons of the par- 
ents who the two dormitories were named 

The judging of the homecoming ex- 
hibits took place at 11:40. The winner 
was the Ornamental Horticulture Society 
with a flat of a football field. 

All through the day students arrived 
with their girl friends. At 1:30 all the 
people assembled at the football field to 
see the Aggies play Western Maryland. 

Freshman Rally & Bon Fire 

After a short discourse by Joseph Kap- 
usnak, the "pep rally" for homecoming 

To start the proceedings President 
Work gave the opening speech. He was 
followed by Dean Meyer, Frank LaRosa, 
alumni President, and Mr. Cecil J. Toor, 
member of the board of trustees. 

The football team was then introduced 
by its captain, Pat Mihlfried. The Fresh- 
man of the college then bellowed cheers 
for the team. This paved the way to one 
of the largest bon fires seen on this cam- 
pus (so say some of the old-tlm»s). The 
freshman proceeded to trot around the 
fire, boicetrously shouting "Beat Western 
Maryland." Upon throwing these signs 
into the fire, customs terminated. 

Congratulations Freshman Class for a 
fine fire, and a fine show of sportsmanship. 

At half time the band played while 
marching on the field and 25 ex-football 
captains were introduced and given var- 
sity club emblems. Among these men were

Curriculum Committees 

Minutes of Meeting 

A meeting <rf the newly constituted Curriculum Committee was held 
after the regular faculty meeting. 

The new members are Mr. Meyer (Chairman), Dr. Turner, Dr. 
Bucher, Mr. Click and Mr. Feldstein. Mr. Adleson sat with the conunittee 
and represented the Biology Department. 

As the conmiittee was newly appointed there was no announced 
agenda for the meeting. The major part of the meeting concerned the 
curriculum of the Biology major and the newly formed Economics 
Department (Dr. Webster, head). 

The science majors (Biology and Chem- 
istry) are entering dieir thira year in the 
curriculum. There will be five juniors and 
five sojAomores in the Biology major 
this year. To quote from the description 
of the Biology major on page 70 of the 
1960-61 College catalog: "The curricu- 
lum in biology has been established to 
train students in botany, zoology and mi- 
crobiology. A student with this training, 
having selected, by his senior vear, one 
of the subdivisions for specialization-" 

The matter of whether it is feasible to 
offer all three options to such a small 
group (5) of sophomores was discussed. 

Fortunately the majority of the juniors 
are inclined toward Zoology. Therefore, 
only this option will be offered to juniors 
this year. 

The Botony inclined junior Biology ma- 
jors can elect appropriate botany courses 
being (^ered in other major curriculums 
this year. 

It was suggested that Histobgy be sub- 
stituted for Cytology for both Botony- 
inclined and Microbiology-inclined Bio- 
logy majors. 

It was pointed out that there are only 
three -courses in the curriculum for Bio- 
lo^ majors which are peculiar to Micro- 
iMologically-inclined students: Inmiimo- 
logy and Serology, Virology and Bacter- 
ial Phydolo^. 

In discussing the curriculum for next 
year's Biology seniors, die question was 
raised as to whedier courses can be off- 

ered to Botany-indixted students but not 
to Microbiologically - inclined students. 
TTie former are offered in the curriculimis 
of other majors. 

The reconunendation was made that 
the Biology major maintain the duree 
above mentioned options as a general 
policy, and that the above described mod- 
ifications be made as an exception for the 
present jimion due to the small size of 
the group and the fact that the majority 
of its memben are Zoologically-inclinea. 

It was also recommended that die Col- 
lege make every reasonable effort to make 
available to the Microbiologically-inclin- 
ed members of the class of 1962 during 
the next two years the following three 
courses: ^Serology. ^Bacterial Hiysiology,

friend, Joseph Maxwell, who is a vice 
president of Camax Co., vanilla bean im- 
porters bcated in Philadelphia and 

Ramon is an Animal Husbandry major. 
He hopes upon gradaution to return to 
Mexico and go to work with his father. 

Rafael Aramburo of Cuahulemoc, 53 
Teziethlan, Puebla, Mexico, is now living 
in Elson Hall. Rafael graduated in No-

USNSA js the only completely student- 
controlled organization devoted exclusi- 
vely to serving the needs of all American 

USNSA was founded by representatives 
of some 350 colleges and universities 
meeting at the University of Wisconsin 
in the late summer of 1947. At that time, 
the rising number of college students, the 
increasing recognition of the importance 
of these students to society, and the deep- 
ening involvement of Americans in the 
international student movement made it 
obvious that the United States needed a 
national organization which would be 
representative of the country's entire stu- 
dent community.

USNSA has worked since its founding 
to discover and to re|H«sent accurately 
the interests, problems ai^ aspirations 
of the American Student. 

USNSA provides valuable leadership 
training for students; opportunity for ex- 
change of ideas on a national scale; an 
effective and democratic voice for the 
American student in national and inter- 
national affairs; many concrete services, 
such as special publication a national 
intercollegiate newspaper, extensive re- 
search and information fadllti«^^s, oppor- 
tunities for participation in national semi- 
nars and in international student ex- 
change programs, and low-cost student 
travel; and other forms of assistance in 
meeting the manifold needs of the stu- 
dent community. 

USNSA has served the educational 
community for over a decade. Cutting 
across political, religious, racial and social 
differences, USNSA has furthered the 
ideal of a genuine community among 
students based on common problems, 
common commitments and common goals.

The Aggies won the toss of the coin and elected to receive. After 
a drive from their own 35 yard line Bob Frantz scored a touchdown from 
the 6 inch line. The try for two extra points failed. 

No sooner than the Aggies scored a touchdown, W«tem Maryland 
scored one on a 58 yard pass play from their 42 yard line. The try for two 
points was successful, thus making sa)re 8-6 in Western Maryland's favor. 

After an exchange of ptmts. Western 
Maryland started a drive from their 11 
yard line but they were halted on the 
Aggie 13 when Frantz intercepted a pass 
on his own 7 yard line, lateraled to Pat 
Mihlfried, who took it to his 25 yard 
line. That play ended the first quarto: 
with Western Maryland leading 8-6. 

The second quarter started with first 
and ten for the Aggies on their own 25 
yard line. After a successful 75 yard drive, 
Rich Lasasso, on a beautiful second ef- 
fort, scored a touchdown from the 9 yard 
line of Western Maryland. The drive for 
two extra points failed. 

On the return kickoff, Western Mary- 
land returned the ball to the Aggies' 46 
yard line. A few minutes later Pat Mihl- 
fred intercepted the ball on his 17 yard 
line and returned it to the Aggie 40 yard 
line. The Aggies could not move the ball 
as Western Maryland intercepted a pass 
on their own 30 yard line, but they could 
not move the ball and the half ended 
12-8 in the Aggies favor. 

During halftime there was a short cere- 
mony for 23 former Aggie football cap- 
tains. They all received awards from Ross 
Koening, the present Varsity Club presi- 
dent. Among the captains were backfield 
coach Joe Fulcoly, who represented the 
class of '58, Steve Ferdo, Une coach '54, 
belovwl chemistry professor Dr. 


Jesse Elson '32, and James Work '13, 
president of Delaware Valley College of 
Science and Agriculture. Mr. Work re- 
a varsity club jacket from Ross Koening 
and gave his thanks. 

Western Maryland received the open- 
ing kickoff and on the very first play from 
their own 46 yard line they scored a 
touchdown on a 54 yard run through left 
tackle. The try for extra point failed. The 
score was 14-12 in Western Maryland's 

On the return kicko£F die Aggies fumb- 
led the ball and Western Maryland re- 
covered on the Aggie's 40 yard line. Their 
drive was halted on the Aggies' 13 )^urd 
line. A few minutes later Western Mary- 
land intercepted a pass on their own 44 
yard line. All of a sudden Jim Hoover 
knifed in and recovered a fumble on 
Western Maryland's 38 yard line. The 
third quarter ended 14-12 in Western 
Maryland's, favor. 

At the beginning of the fourth quarter 
the Aggies were closing in and they made 
a very important first down on the 1(H4 
yard line, which enabled Stein, seconds 
later, to score from die 1 foot line. The 
try for two extra points failed for the 
third strai^t time. After Western Mary- 
land failed to move the ball on the re- 
turn kickoff, Fruitz intercepted a pass on 
his own 33 yard line and returned it for 
43 yards but the play was nullified as 
pass interference was called against the 
Aggies and it was first and ten on the 33. 
The Aggies threw Western Maryland back 
for 17 and 5 yard losses, respectively, and 
forced th»n to give up the ball. 

A few minutes later Western Maryland 
intercepted a pass on their own 42 yard 
hne but a 15 yard penalty moved the ball 
to the Aggies 43 yard line. After a series 
of penalties, Western Maryland finally 
scored a touchdown from the 8 yard line 
and the try for two extra points was suc- 
cessful thus making the score 22-18 in 
Western Maryland's favor. 

The Aggies started a touchdown from 
their own 20 yard line but it was stopped 
on Western Maryland's 27 yard line by 
the time clock. After a seesaw battle, the 
final score was a heartbreaker. Western 
Maryland 22— the Aggies 18.

However, the Aggie defense stood out 
well as John Holmes, Tom Moore, and 
Ron Stein made the key defenseive plays 
while Vernon "Buster" Brown and Bob 
Frantz made the key offensive plays to 
set up these TD's. The final score was 


After losing its first game to Montclair State Teachers' College, the 
Aggies rolled to three strai^t smashing victories over Callaudet, Lin- 
coln, and more recently over Kutztown. 

Kutztown received the opening kickoff 
but they couldn't move the ball so they 
punted. But we couldn't move the ball 
either and they won the exchange of 
punts. A short time later Tom Moore inter- 
cepted a pass on the fifty yard line and 
returned it forty yards to Kutztown's ten 
yard line. On the next play Stein ran 
from the ten yard line for tfie TD. The 
try for extra point was unsuccessful. In 
the second quarter, with a short time 
remaining in the half, Stein crashed over 
from the one yard line for another TD. 
The try for extra point was again unsuc- 
cessful. The Aggies were on their way 
for another TD, whea one of our passes 
was intercepted and the clock ran out 
shortly after ^t. 

In the fourth quarter it was all Aggies 
as two TD's were scored. Brodie Craw- 
ford scored from the one yard line and 
this time the point after touchdown was 
added by senior big Gene Schultz. 

Then, with the game pretty well over, 
coach Chiodi sent Aird string quarter- 
back Tom Vitale into the game. He moved 
the ball well with the climax being an 
eleven yard TD pass to Jerry Gall for the 
last TD. The point after touchdown was

AgroiHmiy dub to Cornell 

On Friday the fourteenth of Octoba 
at 6:30 a.m. a representaticm of the Ag- 
ronomy club set out ^(wgh the fog for 
Cornell. Five hours and some 250 miles 
later we arrived tired, hungry, and sore 
in many places. We met E&. Prundeanu 
and Mr. Garry at one o'clock. 

The itinerary on Friday afternoon in- 
cluded the Soil Analysis Lab. and the 
Micrometiorology Experiment of the U.S.-

the correlation between the sun's energy 
striking earth and its use by plants and 
soils. Joe Shinn, a '59 graduate of N.A.C.

Master's degree. 

Friday evening was left open so that 
the students could get a sample of the 
social life at Cornell. Saturday found the 
group at the Aurora Experimental Farm, 
26 miles north of ComeU. Four experi- 
ments were explained, plowing and di- 
rect planting of corn, soil management, 
maximum yield (on several crops), and 
water absorption and runoff on soil. The

On the afteraoon of November 24, Thanksgiving Day, the Animal 
Husbandry Judging Team left for the International Livestock Judging 
Contest at Chicago, Illinois. After doing poorly at the Harrisburg, Penn- 
sylvania and Timonium, Maryland contests the team was a bit skeptical 
as to how well they were going to do at the country's largest intercol- 
legiate judging contest. 

However, the team was as en- 
thusiastic as ever and silent deter- 
mination was evident. This was go- 
ing to be the last o£Bcial contest 
the team would be in and they sure 
wanted to do well. All Dr. Pelle 
could do was sit back and hope for 
the best. 

When the big day finally came 
we were all as nervous as a cat in 
a briar patch. This was to be the 
longest, most tensive, and exhaust- 
ing day of judging we had ever 
been through. But, when it was all 
over, our efforts had been reward- 
ed, much to our own surprise. 

As it turned out we placed 29th 
out of 38 schools and colleges that 
were entered. This fact in itself is 
not very significant but added facts 
will make it more so,

In this issue the Furrow takes 
pride in honoring two industrus 
Food Industry seniors, Walt Hoog- 
moed and Bill Bums. 

Although acx^pted by Rutgers, 
Iowa State and Michigan State 
Walt Hoogmoed chose the Na- 
tional Agricultural College to be 
his educational "home away from 
home" due to its typical small 
school advantages. Walt has used 
these advantages in both maintain- 
ing a good academic average and 
in participating in a good share of 
extra-curricular activities benefit- 
ting himself, his class and his 

Walt is currently President of the 
Food Industry Club, Secretary of 
the Student Council, and a member 
of the Yearbook staff. In the past 
Walt has played Varsity Football 
and baseball and junior varsity 
basketball. In his freshmen year 
Walt was Vice President of his 
class and was a member of both the 
Glee Club and American Animal 
Husbandry Club. It was not until 
the end of his freshman year that he 
decided to major in Food Industry.

decision by his parents and also in 
his observation of the Food Indus- 
try cirriculum being of a more 
technical group of studies oflFering

sports staff of the school magazine, 

The Arrow. After graduating high 
school Walt worked as a tree sur- 
geon for the Ridgewood Shade 
Tree Commission and attended 
night classes at Rutgers. The fol- 
lowing year Walt entered NAC. 

During his sophomore and junior 
summer Walt learned the ice cream 
business from production to destri- 
bution as an employee of the T. &

As soon as the Spring semester 
rolls around we can all be sure of 
Bill Burns becoming the Big Man 
On Campus, for as chairman of the 
"A-day** committee he will become 
the student in most demand. Up to 
and including now Bill has been 
known as Mr. Photography for the 
role he has played in developing 
the Photography Club (President, 
Sophomore and Junior years) and 
for his responsibilities as Photogro- 
phy editor of the Gleaner, FUR- 
ROW, and the Yearbook. He says, 
"I fel that photography is not Hmit- 
ed to any one club or activity, but 
rather can be used for great bene-

Bill hails irom Northport, Long 
Island, New York, where he was 
bom January 31, 1938. (It may be 
interesting to note that Bill's Fa- 
ther, a senior sanitary inspector for 
the Sulfolk County Board of 
Health, graduated from the Na- 
tional Farm School in 1933). At 
Northport High School Bill went 
out for football, track, was Photog- 
raphy Club President, Photography

Deciding on a possible vetinary 
medicine career Bill planned to 
major in Animal Husbandry at 
N.A.C. However, at the end of his 
freshman year his decision turned 
towards Food Industry. His other 
extra curricular activities have in- 
cluded Glee Club, Contemporary

Food Industry Club. 

During his sophomore and Jun- 
ior summers Bill worked as a food 
handler for the huge link's Log 
Cabin Restaurant," Centerport, L. 
I. Here Bill learned the culinary 
arts and used his background in 
Food Industry to save money for 
his employer. His conscientious at-

College Demobolized 
Chsxx Start Wednesday 

The first winter snow stoim really hit the campus on Sunday noon leaving by 
Monday morning nearly 12 inches of snow and drifts up to 3 and 4 feet deep. 

Electricity and heat were off for 12 hours starting Sunday midnight and finally 
coming back on at noon Monday. All classes were cancelled Monday while very very 
few wa-e held on Tuesday . . . Oh, those profs! The campus parking lot was a sight 
for drivers eyes, how could they get their cars out? By Thursday many were still 

Bill Covington and his workers on the maintenance department did as \ml as 
could be expected in the sub-freezing weather. With one snow plow attachment in 
operation (tlie only one which the college has) snow was removed at both entrances 
to the college by Tuesday afternoon. 

the basketball game between Eastern Baptist College and the Aggies was post- 
poned because of insufficient parking. 

A cantpua demobilized by 12-inch anowsiuTui — as viewed by Bill Bums, camera 
auai tor "Furrow." 

A aight uncommon in the student parking lot is this where students try desperately 
to get their precious cars on the go again — first to get out oi the srtaw driited 
parkirtg lot. 

The Holiday Season is a special time when families 

draw together, reaffirming well-loved customs 

and fundamental beliefs. It is a joyous, eager time 

for the children, rich with make-believe 

and laughter— for their elders a tiritie of pride and 

pleasure, of memories of things past 

and imagining of things to come. It is a time 

of ' gratitude, compassion, hope ami faith. 

Gratitude for the many blessings on this land and for 

trials withstood. Compassion for the le!» fortunate. 

Hope for a better world of peace and justice. 

Faith in our ability to grow and to build. 

For our way of life is a good one — strong and free 

and full of promise — ^and one in which 

we may rear our children with confidence. 

It is in this spirit that we of The FURROW Staff 

extend to all our warm greetings and 

good wishes this Christmas season.

Library is too small. Grovdng college like ours should have larger library. 

Need individual study rooms. 

Fine agricultural science collection; need to improve books of general culture. 

Don't think new annex will be used much because atm(»phere in present library

Need complete selection of USDA pamphlets for reporb. 

Student Library Committee can help in a time like Ais when Library is growins 

so rapidly. ( Didn't mention how — Ed.comrMra)

PlayiNiy Mkigoziiie Launches ''Playboy Tours" Designed 
To Appeal to Sophisticated Young Men and Women 

A new approach to group travel will be introduced early in 1961 when Playboy 
Magazine launches the first of its "Playboy Tours," a new activity of the famed 
national men's magazine. According to Hugh M. Hefner, Editor-Publisher of Playboy, 
"Playboy Tours" initially vdll feature tours to Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, Jamaica, the 
Pacific and specially tailored individual itineraries. ^ 

Design^ to appeal to the sophisticated 

urban young Playboy reader, these es- 
corted tours are also being oflFered to 
college men and women of 21 or older. 
Hefner noted that Playboy, selling over 
1,100,000 copies each month, represents 
"a vast, virtually untapped travel mar- 
ket." He added that Phjyboy's regular 
editorial coverage of the travel field has 
established the magazine as a leading 
authority on distinctive touring. 

Hefner explained that the "Playboy 
Tours" will de-emphasize regimentation. 
"Participants will not feel that they are 
traveling with an army and be herded 
about or made to follow a rigid schedule. 
Instead, they will be encouraged to take 
part in activities that have especial ap- 
peal to them. There will be a wide variety 
of conducted day-time tours and private 
invitations from which to choose." 

"Playboy's European Tours" will fea- 
ture an artist's studio party on Paris' Left 
Bank for a showing of contemporary 
paintings and an impromptu jazz session. 
There will be swimming oflF a private 
yacht in Switzerland, candlelight dinners 
in medieval casUes, and buffet cocktail 
parties with notable European stage and 
screen celebrities. 

"Playboy" travelers will also view vin- 
tage automobile collections as well as 
cellars of vintage wines. They will test 
drive the latest European sports cars, 
scrutinize the collections of the most cele- 
brated couturiers, Iffowse through the 
smartest shops and boutiques, and visit 
the most colorful country inns with real 
old-world atmosphere. 

Evening entertainment will be included

From Havana come charges of sabotage, economic aggression, counter-revolutiony 
intrigue, air raids on Cuban sugar fields, sugar mills, and homes. Against this back- 
rgound, the great news agencies and a powerful section of the U. S. press raise a 
barrage of equally grave accusations. What can we believe in the welter of con- 
flicting reports? 

On The Infemafional Scene 

'We only report the facts," U. S. news- 
men are accustomed to say. Is this true? 
Compare the following — "Facts." 

COMMUNISM: "A pro-Conununist state 
has been established in Cuba with the 
clear objective of bargaining with Soviet 
Russia for the munitions of war . . ." — 
Sokolsky in the New York Journal-Ameri- 
can. True or false? 

FALSE. Not a shred of evidence has 
been produced to support such allega- 
tions as the one above, chaises consis- 
tently used to create a smoke screen be- 
hind which the social objectives of the 
Cuban revolution can be attacked and 
sabataged. Cuba's recent trade pact with 
the Soviet Union represents an effort to 
find new markets for Cuban sugar, and to 
obtain, not arms, but agricultural imple- 
ments and industrial machinery for which 
credit has b«n deni^ in the United 
States. Many other American republics 
trade with the Soviets — as does the 
United States itself. Cuba's Communist 
Party is a tiny minority, with about 
16,000 members. In the 1959 labor elec- 
tions. Communist candidates won in only 
eight of the 243 locals of the 5000,000- 
member Sugar Workers Federation, and 
none were elected to the executive coun- 
cil of the national organization, the 
C.T.C. In international affairs, Cuba finds 
its natural affinity with the other small, 
under-developed nations of the world. It 
is true that a profound social and eco- 
nomic revolution is in progress in Cuba, 
and that the sweeping reforms that are 

being inaugurated undoubtedly must af- 
fect the one-biUion-dollar U.S. invest- 
ment on the island. But only those who 
equate Communism with all forces that 
threaten the status quo of property inter- 
ests will find the Cuban Revolution 

CONFISCATION: "In Cuba, Castro 
is stealing American property with im- 
punity. — U. S. News & World Report. 

FALSE. Although the word "confisca- 
tion" has often been used by the press 
in a context which would suggest illegal 
seizure, nothing has bee nstolen from any 
American — or any Cuban. The Agrarian 
Reform Law, designed to diversify Cuban 
Agriculture and to give 100,000 landless 
peasants a stake in their own rich agri- 
cultural country, conforms in all respects 
with international law and the practice 
of all civilized coimtries. In some cases, 
it has been necessary to put property 
under the supervision of government rep- 
resentatives, pending a decision as to 
formal, legal expropriation. Owners whose 
property is to be expropriated have been 
promised compensation in 20-year gov- 
ernment bonds, bearing interest at the 
rate of 4\%. This compares favorably 
with, for example, the U. S. land reform 
imposed on Japan by General MacArthur 
after World War II, providing for com- 
pensation in 24-year bonds, at 3XX.

Castro to give the world, and the Terror, 

MOSCOW, USSR— Three hundred stu- 
dents from 65 countri^ began a regular 
four year course at Friendship UmVersity

PARIS, FRANCE— A pohUcal rally 
for peace in Algeria ended in a riot on 
the Paris Left Bank on October 27 as 
students favoring inunediate cessation of 
war with Algeria batded with those 
against peace negotiations and police 
clashed with both. 

At least 10,000 persons were involved,

the ruthless hunting down and shooting 
of Fidel's opponents, will begin." — News- 

FALSE. Despite the above prediction, 
Nov. 3, 1959, and the incessant references 
to "terror," "chaos," and "dictatorship" in 
the U. S. press, the great work of revolu-, 
tionary reform and reconstruction now in 
progress in Cuba is going forward in an 
atmosphere of extraordinary optimism 
and energy, as any toiurist can testify. 
The island is being governed by a pro- 
visional government under the Constitu- 
tion of 1940, which is notable in the hem- 
isphere for its liberality. 

What Have We Done . . ? asks a new 
and hopeful generation of Cubans, view- 
ed with hostility in Washington and Wall 
Street, accused of "impudence" for seek- 
ing their independence, threatened with 
economic and diplomatic isolation in the 
hemisphere. Perhaps their crime is their 
youth. (The average age of the Cuban 
revolutionary leaders is 29) Perhaps they 
have aspired toward too much, too soon.

than 7,000 classrooms, hundreds of miles 
of new roads, flourishing agricultural co- 
operatives, thousands of jobs created in 
new industries established throuf^ the 
voluntary contributions of a million Cu- 
ban workers.) Perhaps the explanation 
is simply that there are, in the United 
States, powerful int^^ests bent on frus- 
trating the primary purpose of the Revo- 
lution: to give Cuba back to the Cubans. 
It is true that the young leaders of the 
Cuban Revolution have litde patience 
with considerations of profits and loss, in 
the face of poverty and human need. Nor 
have they any saving experience with and 
amenities of public Relations, or the in- 
trigues of dollar diplomacy, or the sophis- 
try of journalistic "facts" which distort 
truth. Certainly they deserve a hearing.

Freedom of the Press Debated at California 

The p(»ition of the Universi^ of Cali- 
fornia-Berkley Daily Califomian remains 
uncertain, awaiting result of an all cam- 
pus election, following the walk out of 
the senior editorial staff last mondi. 

At the end of November students will 
vote on two amendments and a referen- 
dum to the Assoc. Students' Constitution. 

The first amendment, proposed by die 
CaK Committee for a Free and Inde- 
pendent Student Press, involve removing 
control of Daily Califomian finances from 
the Executive Committee and provides 
for a new consultative board for the 
paper which would have final authority 
on the budget, appoiutment of the busi- 
ness manager, senior editorial board ap- 
pointments and the bylaws. 

The second, proposed by Ex Onn, 
maintains the committee's control of die 
Daily Califomian finances and provides 
for a board similar to that of the first 

The referendum proposes reinstate- 
ment of the form^ senior editorial board. 

An election held earlier in November 
was labeled invalid due to improper 
coverage in the Daily Califomian, biased 
summaries of the proposals in voting 
booths, and improper wording of die 

The senior editorial staff resigned en 
masse last month protesting that Ex- 
Com was trying to curtail the paper's 
freedom. The controversy erupted when 
ExCom denied the Daily's right to en- 
dorse a candidate for an ExCom post.

ACE Civil Defense Commiffee 

To Prepare Special Report 

Arthur Adams, President of the Ameri- 
can Council on Education, recently an- 
nounced the appointment of Thomas 
Hamilton, President of the State Univer- 
sity of New York, as chairman of a com- 
mittee to prepare a special report on 
higher education and civil defense. 

Operating under a contract with the 
U.S. Office of Civil and Defense Mobili- 
zation, the committee will bring up to 
date a 1954 publication of the council 
entitled, "Civil Defense and Higher Edu- 
cation." The pamphlet discusses the gen- 
eral problem of civil defense, contribu- 
tions through regular instructional pro- 
grams, special contributkins to die im-

Dr. Cifford Albright, assistant professor 
of engineering, Pennsylvania State Uni-

vision, University of Colorado; C. O.

University; Dr. Jack T. Johnston, vice

candidate for each office and then either 
approve or reject the entire list. If the 
board passes die list, it then refen it to 
the executive committee (technically the 
publisher of the paper) for final approval. 

Senior staff recommendations is con- 
tinuing. The investigation are almost al- 
ways accepted, said student body presi- 
dent George Link, "because the student 
organization doesn't have enough guts 
to stand up for what it believes and 
veto the list." Link feels this system leads 
to a self perpetuated state where only 
those who conform to the ideology of the 
senior editors have a chance for advance- 

Under the new by-law, the con-

be empowered to approve or veto ap-

the staff to petition for the editorial 

The Independent Califomian, edited 
by ex daily editor Dan Silver, fimctioned 
as a daily for two weeks, then went 
weekly for lack of funds. Semester sub- 
scription rates are $1.75 for undergrad- 
uates, and $2.00 for graduates. Individual 
issues sell for five cents. 

The Berkeley campus is divided over 
the issue, with the student honor society 
and dormitory women backing the for- 
mer daily staffers and the Associated Wo- 
men Students siding with ExCom. 

The matter was brought to die atten- 
tion of NSA, which sent a telrgram to 
ExCom supporting the senkir staM and 
declaring that "the student press must be 
completely self directed (and) must be 
permitted to function free of all student 
or non-student administrative devices."

CEEB Initiate Program To Improve Language 

The first nation-wide program to halt 
the deterioration of high %hool English 
instruction has been established by the 
College Entrance Examination Board 

The detail^ plan calls for retaining 
teachers with the cooperation of college 
and secondary school experts, use of kine- 
scopes for television films, and the adop- 
tion of a set of ground rules for sound 
English instruction. 

The recommendation opposed the use 
of digets and "snippets" instead of whole 
works of literature in the classroom. 

EngUsh teachers were urged to devote 
themselves to the formal teaching of 
language, composition and literature. 

rather than to general education. 

To accomplish its goals, the commis- 
sion announced the following program: 

In the summer of 1961, sixty selected 
college and high school teachers will 
meet for three weeks at the University of 
Michigan to prepare a teacher training 
course in English literature, composition 
and language. 

In the siunmer of 1962 this planning 
group will retain 900 high school teach- 
ers in groups of 45 at institutes to be 
conducted at 20 institutions. Harvard, 
Tulane, New York University and the 
Universities of Michigan and Washing- 
ton have agreed to cooperate in the pro-

on Homecoming Day. 

President LaRosa selected Steve Ferdo 
to Chairman of the Alumni program for 
"A" Day and Homecoming Day. He will 
be assisted by Cecil Toor and Joseph 
Fulcoly, Jr. 

President LaRosa commented on the 
election of officers and felt there should 
be a better way to get more Alumni in- 
terest«l in the elections of officers. Ken 
Mayer and Max Steinberg commented on 
this, stating that the active members are 
usuaUy selected. The nominating com- 
mittee should have a list of the nominees 
publish^ in the Furrow and ask for 
additional names before an election. 
Emory Markovic suggested running a 
Poll Vote in the Fuirow. Joseph Fulcoly, 
Jr. suggested that the nominating com- 
mittee should be more active before elec- 

Emory Markovic suggested that news 
of classmates channel through Class 
Agents. The Class Agents would then 
send in news to the recording secretary 
so that it will be published in the Fur- 

Recommend^ was that an Alumni 
Representative should speak to the mem- 
bers of the Senior Class and inform them 
of the importance of keeping activities 
of all Alumni up-to-date and available to 
the school. 

R-esident James Work commented . on 
the Football Banquet and stated the 
Cross Country Team will also be honored 
at tikis banquet.

The assembly of January 4, 1961 was 
opened by Dean Meyer who introduced 
Mr. Peter Glick as chairman of a com- 
mittee of self evaluation. 

Mr. Glick informed us that this com- 
mittee had been formed to make a self 
evaluation report on the school and give 
a copy to each of the members of the 
Middle States Association of Colleges and 
Secondary Schools who will be here ex- 
amening the school on the 16, 17, and 18 
of this month. Some members of this 
committee are Dr. Turner, Mr. McGurk, 
and Mr. Glick. Advising this conmiittee 
are two outside consultents from other 
colleges who are members of the asso- 
ciation. Mr. Glick then point«l out that 
there are some 94 questions answered in 
the report. These are broken up into such 
headingss as objects, trustess, library, 
faculty, and admissions. He said that one 
of the main points of these is, objects 
and how the school is going about achiev- 
ing them. 

Dr. Turner then told us that one of 
the other things they will be looking at 
are the curriculums. He said that the 
average curriculum in the school now 
contains about 5055 hberal arts cources, 
the other 50% being technical cources in 
the majors. The last time the school ap- 
plied for membership to the association 
the liberal arts program wasn't developed 
to the extent it is now. 

President Work then showed his con- 
fidence in the school by saying he was 
sure that the school would meet the spe- 
cifications of the association.

Tho K«yttone, Kutztown State College: 

Kutztown students are currently having mid-day lectiu-es, sponsored by the student 
cooperative association, several times each month. The lectures, whose purpose is the 
broadening of the culttural program, are followed by question and answer periods. 
The first two lectures were on the subjects of "Juvenile Delinquency" and "Fall 

The Spotlight, Eastern Baptist College: 

During Freshmen Orientation, the class of 1964 enjoyed a funpacked week. 
Some of the events included in the week's activities were a scavenger hunt, a picnic 
and a treasurer hunt which led the students to their starting place, the swimming 
pool. After a refreshing dip, the freshmen enjoyed a slice of watermelon. 

The Selonian, Seton Hall University: 

At tile outset of the basketball season the Setonian sponsored a Basketball contest. 
The object was to pick the winning team in the first four games and the scores. The 
winnar of the contest got two free tickets to one of the later games. 

Miami Hurricane, University of Miami: 

The Florida Inter-Institutional Student Government Association has recently been 
formed under the backing of the UM administration. This organization will try to 
promote better relations among Florida's colleges, promote improvements in the 
educational program, and solve student government problems. 

Swapper, Millersvilie State College: 

Millersville has recently received permission to convert to a four quarter system, of 
academic study. Among other things this plan will do away with the period extending 
from the end of November to the end of January which does not give enough con- 
secutive study time to students. 

Textile Engineer, Philadelphia Textile Institute: 

FTI students were asked to give their views on the draft, since it is a subject 
uppermost in the minds of all male college students. A majority of opinoin was in 
favor of the present draft laws because if being in the service was on a voluntary 
basis, our highly technical army wouldn't have enough capable men. 

Doiry Breed Associotions' Representatives Speak 

Representatives of three dairy breed associations addressed the members of tlie 
Dairy Society at Delaware VaUey College of Science and Agriculture on Tuesday, 
January 17th, at 8 p.m. The speakers for the program were: Joseph O. Canby, Jr., 
National Director of the Holstein-Friesian Association, of Greenwo(xl Farms, Lang- 
home, Penna.; Parker Sanborn, Northeast fieldman of the Jersey Cattle Club; and 
George Gushing of Penbuck Farm, Reigelsville, Penna., a member of the Nationa' 
Executive Committee of the Ayrshire Breeders Association. The three speakers debated 
the merits of the various breeds of dairy cattle and held a question period after their 
presentations. Interested members of the public were invited to attend the talks. 

On January 3rd, members of the Dairy Club heard Lloyd B. Westcott, vice-presi- 
dent of the American Guernsey Cattle Club and owner of Mulhocaway Farms, Rosc- 
mont, N. J., outline the merits of the Guernsey breed.

Gary Stapleton 

When you're smiling, the whole world 
smiles with you. Synonymous widi the 
lyrics of that old song is the cheerful dis- 
position of our smihng headwaiter Gary 
Stapleton. He is one of the best-liked stu- 
dents among his classmates and can def- 
nitely serve as a shining example for thej 
rest of the students to follow. He claims 
that "Seniors should command respect by 
setting good examples, for one of thg 
main objects at college is to learn to get 
along with people, not to show disres- 

Gary was bom Febmary 20, 1940, in 
Buffalo, N. Y. After living in Connecti- 
cut and New Orleans he now resides in 
Media, Pennsylvania. He is a former 
Eagle scout and attended boyscout jam- 
borees in California, (1953), and New 
Mexico, ( 1955). As we can see Gary has 
been around somewhati Before graduat- 
ing Media High School Gary participated 
as class Vice President, basketball man- 
ager, and stafF member of both the school 
paper and the yearbook. He is now a 
Sunday school teacher at the Rosetree 
Lutheran Church. 

What prompted Gary to attend DVC 
was his interest in horses. He had pre- 
viously worked part-time for a stable and 
had gained enough interest in horses to 
make him think of majoring in Animal 
Husbandry. He had also previously gain- 
ed some experience in landscaping and 
later, in his Sophomore summer, he work- 
ed as manager of the Garden Mart near 
his home. Ironically Gary majors in 
neither Animal Husbandry or Ornamen- 
tal Horticulture but rather in straight 
Horticulture. His specific interest hes in 
mosquito control. As part of his Junior 
summer program he did research on en- 
cephelitis and mosquito identification for 
the Delaware County Board of Health. 
He now hopes to go on to gradaute 
school to study entomology with the em- 
phasis on the Ufe and whereabouts of the 
mosquito. Without forgetting his former 
interest in horses Gary feels that there 
lies a good income jpotention in the shoe- 
ing of horses — particularly since the pop- 
ulation of this four-legged animal is ex- 
panding due to the increase of the racing

Letter from Lincoln 

Post Office Box 71 
Lincoln Univ., Penna. 
November 22. 1960 

Members of the Faculty 
Lincoln University 
Lincob University, Penna. 

D^ur Sirs and Mesdames: 

We, the members of the Student Sen^ 
ate, propose to have an annual Lincoln 
Day on Lincoln's Birthday. We feel that 
it wouU be vary beneficial to generally 
orientate tf»e student body and Ae fac- 
ulty. We further f^l it would cultivate 
entiiusiasm for our school and give every- 
one a better understanding of Lincoln's 

The annual Lincob I^y program 
would consist of the following: 

A. No classes 

B. Program in Chapel 

1. Life of Lincoln 

2. History of School 

C. A Lincoln Dance 

We also feel that the Dean's List Stu- 
dents should have some type of special 
privilege for their excellence. It would 
also serve to motivate other students to 
strive for the Dean's List. For this spe- 
cial privilege, we propose unlimited cuts 
for Dean's List Students. We know that 
because they are exceptional students 
they \vt)uld govern themselves wisely and 
not abuse such a privilege. 

We would highly appreciate your im- 
mediate actions upon the above proposals. 
Thank you vary much. 

Sincerely yours, 

James A. Donaldson

Witconsinitet Sign 
For Voluntary ROTC 

Three hundred and ei^ty-eight h&ti- 
men and 226 sophomores have sign^ up 
for voluntary ROTC at the University of 
Wisconsin Uiis fall, the first year since 
World War II that Wisconsin's ROTC 
curriculum has been voluntary rather 
than compulsory. 

Last spring's decision to put ROTC 
un a voluntary basis contained a clause 
which stated that the ROTC program 
vvvuld automatically revert to a comjml- 
sory basis if the number of students 
entering ROTC in the fall of 1961 or '82 
should fall below 75 per cent of the num- 
ber entering these programs in Ae fall 
of '59. 

To maintain the required 75 percent, 
150 men would have to enter the program 
as juniors, and Professor Gerard Rohlich, 
head of the faculty committee on ROTC 
has stated, "Applying all factors we have 
experienced in previous y^ars, we esti- 
mate that with the number we now have 
enrolled we will make the 150 required 
on this campus witfi room to spare." 

Rohlich is currently preparing a full 
report for the next meeting of the regents. 
He said he was "satisfied with the ROTC 
enrollment figures and fairly siwe that it 
will remain voluntary." 

Starting more than foiir years ago, re- 
peated attempts were made by students, 
headed by the Wisconsin Student Asso- 
ciation, to repeal the compulsory pro- 
I gram. 

Iconomia Inftructor Cited 

Russel J. Knorr of Perkasie, instructor of economics at Delaware Valley College 
of Science and Agriculture, Doylestown, was cited by the Chapel of the Four Chap- 
lains, Philadelphia in recognition of his "outstanding service to all people regardless 
of race or faidi" and was made a member of the Chapel's Legion of Honor. 

For some fifteen years Mr. Knon has been active with the American Legion in its 
Junior Legion and Knee-Hi baseball programs and in hospital rehabilitation work for 
veterans. In the past, he served as Chairman of the Legion's Defense Committee 
which coordinates local civil defense operations. Mr. Knorr has been a member of the 
faculty at Delaware Valley College for the past five years.

for interviews with Aese representatives one week prior to the scheduled campus visit. 


Do you think a phone on the second 
and third floors of Ulmar Hall would be 
beneficial? < 


It would eliminate unnecessary yelling 
of names from the first to the other floors 
in the dorm. 
Harold GRifrrrH '64 

It would eliminate the necessity of stu- 
dents on the first floor having to run up 
to the third floor to find someone who is 
wanted on the phone. The time spent in 
running after other students could be 
used for studying. For the number of stu- 
dents in this dona, one phone isn't suffi- 
cient for their i»eds. 


I feel it would be beneficial for all the 
boys in the dormitory If phones were to 
be put on all three floors. There would be 
less noise and the boys on the first floor 
wouldn't be continually annoyed by hav-j 
ing to run up to the second and third

A garden haven which stresses the virtues of easy maintenance will be the exhibit 
of Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture, Doylestown. The haven will 
be dominated by a geodetic-roofed shelter of wood witli white canvas panels laced 
to the triangular planes of the roof. A wood decking is featured as the floor of the 
haven and is laid in a parquette form. Four large, portable planters, also of wood, 
allow for seasonal changes of plantings. 

Following die eiisy-care theme of the haven, the plan of the pennanent planting 
follows simple lines in which evergreens play a major role. Two groupings of^azaleas 
provide a note of color as do tlie arrangements in the wood planters. Two of the 
planters are placed in a ground cover of English Ivy on one side of the entrance. A 
low retaining wall of concrete capped by flag stones separates the two levels of the 

The evergreens used to seclude tlie shelter are: clipped yews, false cypress fronted 
by rhododendrons, and a large spruce. Spreading junipers and an "L-shaped pool on 
the upper level complete the design which was planned by Frederic S. Blau, professor 
of landscape design and chairman of the Department of Ornamental Horticulture at 
the College. Junior students in tlie department will execute the plans at the Flower 
Show which is being held in Philadelphia.

State Senate Passes Resolution . . . 


Harrisburg, Penna. 

ofiFce of the secretary 

In the Senate, 
January 16, 1961 

In 1896 Joseph Krauskopf, D. D. purchased a farm of one hundred acres, arranged 
for the construction of a small class room byilding, established a faculty of two, 
enrolled a student body of six and so founded the National Farm School at Doyles- 
town, Bucks County, 

It is a wonderful tribute to the founder and to tliose who have followed him that 
his philosophy, which was the development of character, tolerance, and the ability to 
think, the acceptance of students and faculty members without regard to race or creed, 
the teaching* of both theory and techniques and the turning away of no (}ualified stu- 
dent due to his economic position, has been followed and broadened for sixty-four 

As the science of agriculture became more complex and as educational processes 
became more complicated the school met these challenges and in 1946 was accredited 
by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as the National Agricultural College, author- 
ized to grant Bachelor of Science Degrees in tlie various fields of agriculture. 

By 1960 the original buildings had grown to over sixty buildings, the one hundred 
acres to a thousand acres, the student body to over foiur hundred, the faculty to forty- 
eight mtJmbers and the college had enlarged its field to include degree granting majors 
in biology and chemistry. * 

Reflecting the broadening program of studies the name of the college has now 
hik-u cIiHuged to Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture. The college 
has kept abreast of the times, has made significant contributions not only to agricul- 
ture, but to the sciences and is now engaged in a development program which will 
result in far greater facilities for service to its students and the entire community; 
therefore be it 

RESOLVED, That die Senate of Pennsylvania extends Its commendations and 
congratulates the Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture, their members 
of its Board of Trustees, and to James Work, its President, a man of vision and 
dynamic enterprise. 


I certify that the foregoing is a true and 
correct copy of a resolution introduced by 
Senators Marvin V. Keller and Israel Stiefel 
and adopted by the Senate of Pennsylvania 
the sixteenth day of January, one thousand 
nine hundred and sixty-one.

The Glee Club Dance 

By Charles Schuck 

The Glee Club held their first dance 
at Delaware Valley College on Friday, 
February 17, 1961. The students, faculty, 
and guests danced from 8 until 12 to the 
wonderful masic of Harmand Farr and 
his orchestra in the Neumann Gymnasium 
which was very beautifully decorated 
with valentine red and white. 

"Sweetheart Serenade" was originally 
scheduled for Saturday, February 4, 
1961, but due to the weekend's 12 inches 
of snow and 4 foot drifts, the dance was 
cancelled and rescheduled for February 
17, 1961. 

During the first intermission, evervone 
was entertained with the music by "The 
Monsters," a dixieland band composed 
of young boys and girls from the Lans- 
dale area. During the second intermis- 
sion, Dan Wliitfeild, the president of the 
Glee Club, extended special thanks to 
Mr. Charles R. McNally, the director of 
the Glee Club; Mr. Ned A. Linta, for 
his help on decorating the gymnasium; 
Mr. Milton Holmberg, who was the head 
chairman of the dance; and to all mem- 
bers of the various committees that help- 
ed to make the djince a success. 

After the second intermission, Tom 
Merker, a member of the Glee Club, and 
his date, Joyce Piersanti, danced the 
Charleston. Joe Moors, another Glee Club 
member, and his fiancee, daiKed very 
Ixautifully to a waltz. Everyone attena- 
ing the dance enjoyed the entertainment 
as well as the hi^ly successful dance 
sjwnsored by the Glee Club. 


Carl Fitzgerald 

Carl Fitzgerald, also known as "Kil- 
ler," was born April 23, 1935, in Cross-* 
roads, Pennsylvania. He now lives in 
Lewistown, Pa., and is a graduate of 
Orbisonia Aera Joint High Sch(H>l. Here 
Cial participated in varsity f(M)tball, the 
class play, the school newspaper, and was 
a member of both the hbrary staff and the 
yearbook staff. 

Carl's chief interest is in pomology, the 
study of fruit culture. Naturally he is a 
devout Hort major. However, upon grad- 
uating high sch(X)l Carl entered Perm 
State to persue his chief interest only td 
eventually find out the disadvantages of 
such a big school. Upon entering DVC 
Carl quickly "found himself and took 
advantage of the superior methods of 
teaching which can only be found in a 
small college. Since then he has main- 
tained a good academic average and has 
participated moderately in extra-cariculaij 
activities. He is a member of the Hort 
Club, Glee Club, and is the Secretary of 
the DVC Bowling League, This past 
November Carl represented DVC at the 
Intercollegiate Horticultural Society Con- 
vention, held at Penn State. 

Carl comes from a family of fi\e broth- 
ers (one is an assistant professor al Penn 
State) and three sisters. His father is a 
retired Methrxliit minister and his mother 
is a sch(M>l teacl^r. 

During his Sophomore summer Carl 
worked for Mr. Feldstein in the DVC 
Hort. department. The following sunim* r

James E. Diamond 

Its getting around to that time of the 
year again when a sheep shearer gets 
out his sheep shears, and cleans off the 
rust, sharpens the blades and prepares 
for the shearing season. Also, at this time 
of the year die sheepmen are in the 
most lal)orious part of the year in sheep 
management. Good management and the 
shepherds skill in raising sheep will de- 
termine in dollars and cents wise, tlm 
success of a wool and lamb crop. 

During the winter months and tiic first 
iiiontl) or so of spring, the shearer is 
wondering how good of a job the sheep- 
men are doing in taking proper measures 
to prepare their sheep for die clip. A 
shearer will wonder during tliese montlis 
if the wool growers are doing the follow- 
ing practices, in order to produce a good 
quality fleece: 1) Do the sheep have suffi- 
cient shelter to protect them from wind^ 
rain, and snow? 2) From what type of 
hay rack do the sheep eat from, in order 
to protect them from the hayseeds get- 
ting into tlie fleece, especially about the 
head and neck? 3) Are the sheep well 
bedded, so the fleece will lie kept free 
from moisture and manure? 4) Do the 
barn doors have sufficient width and 
heighth for the sheep to pass through? 
And fifth, what condition are the sheep 
in, becaust' skinny, undernourished sheep 
are much nM)re difficult to shear than 
sheep that are in fairlv good condition? 
These are some of the major factors that 
wool growers should be aware of if h(^ 
wants to get the niaxiiuum lx*nefit of his 
wool i-Top. Also, if the alK)ve measurers 
ar( followed properly, the shearer will 
[jc able to do a mueli better shearing job 
for the producer. 

Here in Eastern United States, you will 
find that the majority of the sheep are 
found in small farm flocks, ranging from 
.50 to .500 head per flwk. Most of these 
flocks are mutton type sheep that pro- 
duce the medium grades of wool. Due 
to the small size in tlie flocks, sheep 
here in the east receive much more at-. 
tention than the range sheep. So conse- 
quently, the fleeces of these sheep should 
be of much better ({uality than range 
sheep. But this does not always hold 
true. Kami flocks are exposed to more 
dirt, hayseed, burrs, barb wire, moisture 
and manure, than flocks on the range. 

About April 5, when the weather is 


warmer, tlie sheep growers should begin 
thinking about getting thei rsheep shear- 
ed. Actually, sheep should be sheared by 
this time, because when they are put on 
green pasture, the sheared sheep will put 
on much better gains than sheep carry- 
ing their fleeces. Also, when sheep are 
put on a lush pasture, they become loose 
in their bowel movements, causing great 
accumulations of manure about the pos- 
teiror or britch portion of the fleece, 
causing degrading of the fleece quality. 
But most generally wool growers do not 
get their sheep sheared .until after the 
22nd of April, or after they have been 
turned on pasture, which is undesirable 
for the wool buyer. Another disadvant- 
age of not shearing sheep early, is in- 
sect infestation. Usually the last part of 
April and all of May, there is much pre- 
cipitation, and flies will lay eggs about 
the dock, which is usually contaminated 
with manure, and the next thing you 
know, the animals have maggots, again, 
degrading fleece quahty. 

When the shearing day arrives, the 
sheep shouldn't be fed the night before, 
because hungry sheep are much more 
{|uiet to handle. The sheep should be 
penned up in the barn so the fleece will 
rx' dry because sheep should be shorn 
only when the wool is perfectly dry. 
Wool that is shorn and rolled when damp_ 
or wet will mildew and spoil. Also be- 
fore shearing, all "tags" or lumps of 
manure should be removed before start- 
ing to shear. A good sheepman will keep 
tiie tags removed from time to time, so 
that none will he present at shearing 

When the shearer begins the annual 
clip, he should have a clean dry ar.;a, 
free from straw, dirt, chaft, and moisture 
to work in. A wootlen floor is about the 
best type of floor to shear on. If a solid 
floor is not available, a clean canvas can 
be used to keep the fleece clean. 

After the sheep are shorn, the fleeces 
must be rolled and tied properly. Many 
sheepman do not realize the importance 
of rolling and tieing a fleece in the proper 
was. There is only one correct way to 
roll a fleece. After the fleece is off the 
animal, it should be in one piece. The 
flet'ce should be turned over with the 
flesh side on th<' floor. The sides are each 
folded U) the center, and the neck and 
head W(M)1 is folded as far as the shoulder. 
Then you begin with the britch end and 
roll toward the neck. In this manner, the 
finest andl liest wool of the fleece will lie

Aggies Beat PC of B 

Just before the game, the Aggies were 
treated to a little pre-game entertainment 
featuring a girls basketball game be- 
tween Hiiladelphia College of the Bible 
and King's College of New York. King's 
College had the height of advantage, but 
the Bible College took advantage of 
many very bad passes and good hook and 
jump shooting to win the game 56-44. 
King's fought valiantly, but too late to 
win the game. 

The Aggies won their fourth game of 
the season as they got by in the last few 
minutes of the game, 60-55. The high 
man for the Aggies was Bob Frantz with 
16 points and runner up was Bill Mer- 
tens with 14 points. The high nian for 
Philadelphia College of the Bible was 
Don MacCuUough with 16 points and 
runner up was Don Lyon with 14 points. 
In the first half it was Bible all the way 
28-18. In the second half the Aggies 
began to nibble away at that lead until 
Ray Thompson put the Aggies ahead 39- 
38 witli 16:37 left. The lead began 
changing hands for more than 13 minutes 
until Ken Mathieson put the Crusaders 
ahead for the last time with 1:37 left at 
55-54. Then Ray Thompson put the Ag- 
gies ahead to stay 56-55 with 1:01 left. 
Not long afterwards Wheeler Aman stole 
a pass, fed to Bobby Frantz, who madq 
the score 58-55 with 37 seconds with a 
driving 1 layujp. Then Wheeler Aman 
made his only basket with 5 seconds left 
and that was the game. 

All the Aggies played well though the 
Crusaders gave them a scare for a while. 
Joe Morosky didn't do too badly for hav- 
ing a swollen ankle, cause imlcnown, in 
addition, he scored four points. Wheeler 
Aman, Bob Frantz, and Ray Thompson 
played great, but non^ of them stood up 
to Bill Mertens performance as the big 
man scored 14 jwints.

Delaware Valley Hands Newark State 7tli Loss 

Newark State was handed its 7th loss 
of the season by Delaware Valley 77-70 
at Doylestown, Pa. Newark moved into 
a quick lead on the fine shooting of Art 
Salley. The Scjuires gradually increased 
their lead as Mike Duffy began scoring 
from the comer on set shots. The Newark 
cagers led by 16 points with 3 minutes 
left in the £u"st half, but they could no 
longer find the range and saw the Aggies 
close the lead to eight points as the half 
closed out. 

The second half was a completely dif- 
ferent picture. The Aggies practically ran 
the Squires off the court. The Newark 
team's eight point lead was soon gone 
and they found themselves trailing by 
three points with only 5 minutes elaf^ed 
in the second Half. Dave Ruff and Joe 
Morosky increased the Aggie lead to 9 
points with 10 minutes left in the game. 
The Squires again showed signs of life as 
Mike Duffy and Tom Kuc began pene- 
trating the Aggie zone defense and came 
within three points with 4:50 left in the 
game. With 4:11 left in the contest the 
Squires knotted the count at 65-65 
and then went ahead 66-65 on a 
foul shot by Mike Duffy. However, three 
Newark Staters fouled out in rapid order 
as the Aggies reeled off eight straight 
points to put the game on ice. Newark 
State was led by Mike Duffy aikl Art 
Salley with 23 and 18 points respectively.

Why do students cheat? Do they think that they are helping dieniselves by getting 
better marks or do they cheat because they do not want to tax their minds with 

Now don't get me wrong. I uni not saying that tliere are people that never cheat. 
If someone were to lome up to me and say that he had NEVER cheated, I would 
q^l that person a liar to his face. For example, every person at one time or another 
overhears something whispered by another student or by a profe.ssor who is answering 
a question during a quiz 6r test. This comment, whether right or wrong, leads that 
person to thinking as to whether his answer is correct or not and this is one form of 

I am referring to tliosc persons who bring to a test a "pony" or "crib sheet" or 
whatever they might call their "helping hand." These people, if they would only stop 
to think, would see that they are only cheating themselves. By being honest they 
might get lower marks but-and a big but-they would probably learn more. 

Sure, good marks might help one get a job easier, but how can one cheat his way 
ahead in business. In business, what "pony" can one use to get a sale or make a 
contact or do a job. 

I know by now that you, the reader, are probably saying to yourself, "Sure, this 
is true, but what can be done about it." Well, I am not going to ask you to turn in 
anyone that is cheating, for I know I wouldn't. What I am trying to do is reach the 
person that cheats and to tell him— Let your conscience be your guide and why cheat

Would you like to see fraternities at 
U. V. C? 

John Van Vorst '61 

I think if a fraternity housi' was on 
campus it would give the boys a place 
they could have respect for and in doing 
so tfie food would ne much Ix'tter than 
that found in the present place. Kratern- 
itit^s have a place on campus and D. V. C. 
is no exception. 

Ronald Colo '62 

Yes, I feel fratern- 
ities would help 
l)ring about b etfer 
relations between 
students engaged in 
the fraternity and I 
think the students in 
frats would get bet- 
ter marks, and I feel 
if there are fraternities, there would be 
dances, and parties and thus less weekend 

Ronnie Stein '63 

Fraternity life 
would create better 
friendship and bet- 
ter atmosphere. On 
the whole I think 
fraternity would be 
good for the school. 
Fraternities have a 
few bad points but 
it has many good points. Sometimes fra- 
ternities have been known to hurt aca- 
demic standing hf too much .social hfe. 
But they also liave been known to help 

David Mullen '64 

No, I don't be- 
lieve fraternities nor 
any type of limited 
membership organi- 
zation would be real- 
I istic on the D. V. C. 
campus. My reasons 
for tJiis feehng are 

that it would divide 

the college into small individual groups. 
As it is now our social life is limited, but 
what about the Student Council dances 
planned for the future? 

Tom Vitale '64 

Yes, 1 would like to see fraternities on 
this campus, because it would bring bet- 
ter friendship among the students and 
the faculty. The Membership of the fra- 
ternities alone would help the school

Each fleece should he tied with paper 
twine, which is made especially for tfiis 
purpose. The use of sisal, cotton or jute 
twines is not desired because a vegetable 
fiber cannot be removed from the ffeece 
in the scouring process. The fibers of a 
vegetable twine become mingled with 
the wool fibers and show up in the dye- 
ing process. In the dyeinjg process tiie 
vegetable fibers are not affected by the> 
dyestuff applied to the wool. So conse- 
(|uently, removing such fibers becomes 
very costly to the mills. Some mills re- 
fuse to buy fleeces that are not tied with 
paper twine. Tie the fleece by making 
one wrap of paper twine around it, turn 
it at a right nagle and make another wrap 
around it. Tie the two ends and the job 
is completed. 

After the wool is rolled it should be 
stored in a dry place, free from dirt, dust, 
bird droppings and mice.

Monday, April 22, 1961 



Years of wholesale collecting resulted in this potpourri of work objects at the 
Mercer Museum — wagons, sleds, skiffs, fire wagons, churns, buckets, and such. 

Two hours from New York, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, you can visit 
a 55-room Graustarkian citadel built by a brilliant, eccentric archeologist 
who lived in it — and an equally romantic museum that houses his 
collection of Americana. 

Early in the century, curiosity seekers 
with "nowhere else to go" in tJieir new 
automobiles used to drive out to Doy- 
lestown, Pennsylvania, look at Fonthill 
Castle being built, and shake their heads 
in wonder. Now, 50 years after its com- 
pletion, people still go— about 4,()00 last 
year— to see this concrete dream castle 
two hours by car from New York. They 
learn about the place by word-of -mouth, 
because it's seldon publicized and has no 
road signs leading to it. 

Mrs. Frank K. Swain is the voice of 
Fonthill. named for its hilltop site and 
nearbv spring. At 78 she's as agile as a 
schoolgirl— running up and down tower 
steps and giving guided tours. She came 
as housekeeper 50 years ago for Dr. 
Henrv Chapman Mercer, original de- 
signer and owner of the castle, which is 
now a community trust. Mrs. Swain ad- 
mits it'c cold in winter; she sjivs a vear's 

fuel bill is $1,000. She bundles up in 
warm clpthes (a jacket, red knit glove's, 
saddle oxfords, and socks) for winter 
tours through the 55-ro(An concrete 
monolith, which is about 70 feet high. 

On the tour Mrs. Swain talks about 
Mercer (1856-1930)-on one hand a ro- 
mantic who built castles and wrote 
Gothic tales, including a privately pub- 
lished book of stories called "November 
Night Tales"; and on the otlier, a lawyer 
and respected anthropologist and arcne- 
ologist with two honorary doctorates. A 
lay architect, Mercer was a pioneer in 
reinforced concrete, which is chose for 
its plasticity and durabilitv. Fonthill was 
built without a blueprit from only a scale 
model, with Mercer on the scene— and 
.sometimes in residence to direct the lab- 
orers. It encases a small 18th centurv' 
fannhouse he wanted to preserve.

Woman's Auxiliary of D.V.C. Gives College $6,000 

Mrs. Michael Brylawski ot 606 mkma Avenue, Elkins Park, president of the 
Women's Auxiliary of Delaware Valley College of Sc/enoe and Agriculture, ia shown 
presenting check for f 6,000 to James Work, president of the College, aa Hon. Harry 
Shapiro, trustee, and David Levin, treasurer of the College, look on. 

Representing proceeds of projects un- 
dertaken by the auxiliary during the year, 
including House and Garden Tours, con- 
tributions to its Remembrance Fund and 
the annual Cake Sale held in conjunction 
with "Agriculture Day" on the campus 
in Doylestown, the check presentation 
highlighted a luncheon meeting hosted 
by Senator Shapiro and Mr. Levin last 
week to interpret to Philadelphia leaders 
projected plans for expansion and devel- 
opment of this only Jewish-sponsored, 
non-sectiuian College in Delaware Val- 

Plans call for intensification of support 
effort after the Allied Jewish Appeal 
campaign in Philadelphia during which 
organizational plans will remain in abey- 
ance in deference to the appeal. 

The Women's Auxiliary concerns it- 
.self primarily vn'ih the needs of the col- 
lege library, and is spearheading efforts 
to expand library facilities to keep pace 
with increasing student enrollments. The 
present Expansioa and Development pro- 
gram calls for the addition of two wings 
to the Joseph Krauskopf Memorial Lio- 
rary. The late Rabbi Jo.seph Krauskopf 
was the founder of the original Farm 
School in 1896 from which evolved first 
a three-year junior college in 1946. In 
June of 1948 the college was accredited 

by the State Council of Education as a 
senior college with the power to grant 
Bachelor of Science degrees in seven 
branches of agriculture, and changed its 
name to the National Agricultural Col- 
lege. In September 1960 the new name 
of Delaware Valley College of Science 
and Argiculture was adopted by the 
Beard of Tru.stees and approved by the 
State Council of Education and the 
Court of Common Pleas of Bucks Coun- 
ty, reflecting the broadening of degree- 
granting curricula including degrees in 
biology and in chemistry. 

The expansion and development capi- 
tal needs program seeks a goal of two 
million dollars by 1962 for a student 
body enlarged from the present 410 to 
600 and for the necessary construction 
of additional dormitories, classrooms, 
laboratories and modernization of older 
structures. The college looks to the time 
when its degree-granting curricula in- 
clude business administration and liberal 
arts, subjects of which are now an es- 
sential part of all its courses. 

The Garden Club of the Women's 
Auxiliary of Delaware Valley College of 
Science and Agriculture meets every sec- 
ond Tuesday at 10a.m. at John Wana- 
maker. Community Room, Jenkintown. 
New m<'mbers are most cordially invited.

place like it, but Dr. Mercer said he 
wasn't going to read by a lamp during 
the day," Mrs. Swain comments. This 
explains the seemingly random place- 
ment of windows on Bie exterior of some 
of the wings. 

At night the doctor read by a kerosene 
lamp. "You don't think I'm going to read 
by that electricity and ruin my eyes, do 
you?" he'd tell her. "He finally installed 
electricity for me, so I wouldn't have to 
polish lamps and trim wicks all day." 
The electricity is still minimal, with wires 
and light hulks mostly hanging naked. 

"It took 10 years to build the castle 
and 18 to put in all the nice things," 
Mrs. Swain says as part of her guide's 
lecture. Among the "nice things" are a 
library of technological books, an Etrus- 
can vase encased in a pillar. Lord Balti- 
more's clock, an Egyptian tear bottle, a 
cr(X'<xlile suspended from the ceiling (a 
conuuon practice among scientists, Mrs. 
Swain claims), a pirate's chest, and more 
than 100 Hograui engraving. 

Castle Isn't Haunted-Y«t 

Imaginations go rampant in castles, 
and Mrs. Swain's is no exception. "I call 
this tlie Romeo and Juliet balcony," or 

Part ol the c»^h, nmimaoBnt of the 
Rhitmlmnd, built by Dr. Hemy Chapman 
Mercer a twit-century ago in rural Perm- 
sytvania. It's now open to the public. 

"Architects called it blind architecture 
and said it would never stand, but here 
it is," says Mrs. Swan with a sweep of 
the hand, as if shooting cM c-ynics. 

Tiles cover the floors, walls, mantles, 
vaulted ceilings, and stairways, and ex- 
cept for the ancient Babylonian and 
Persian tiles and Chinese roof tiles, all 
of them were made under .Mercer's di- 
rection in the concrete, cloister-like pot- 
tery he built behind Fonthill. "I'm not 
going to be walked on all my life," Mrs. 
Swain remembers he said, referring to 
the floor tiles, so he perfected decorator 
tiJes— a rariety in America 50 years ago. 
His tiles tell in pictures the Bible story 
of Lazanis and the beggar, Mr. Pickwick, 
and the discovery of America. 

Tiles on a bathroom wall at I'onthill 
greet you with "Top of the morning." 
Over a stairway they list the workmen 
who built the castle and Lucy, the horse, 
who "uplifted" the cement; on the side 
is a portrait of Lucy. Tiles at the en- 
trance once read, "Except the Lord build 
this house,/Thev labor in vain that build 
it," but minor repairs have erased the 
first line. 

"The house for the master, not tlie 
master for the liouse," the philosophy of 
Mercer-as-arehit('( t. is t'lnhcddetl in tile 
along a stairway. "He designed the house 
from the inside to let in all the daylight 
possible, architects said then was no

Wayne Hunt 

Without a doubt, Wayne Hunt is the 
top senior in his major of Agronomy and 
is an active participant in many school 
activities. Wayne has been a member of 
the Agronomy Club for the past four 
years and was Vice President in his jun- 
ior year. He is active eadi year on A- 
Day. Wayne has done much of the typ- 
ing for both the Furrow and the Gleaner 
for the past three years and he is cur- 
rently typing manager of the Furrow. 
In addition, he has been active in intra- 
mural football, basketball and volleyball 
and is currently co-captain of our var- 
sity baseball team on which he has plw- 
ed since his sophomore year. Naturally, 
he is a member of the Varsity Club. 

Although a life-long resident of Mt. 
Airy, New Jersey, Wayne was bom right 
here in Doylestown just twenty one years 
ago. His father and his older brother 
tend the family dairy farm while his 
mother teaches fourth grade. 

Wayne was just as active at Lambert- 
ville High School as he has been here at 
D.V.C. He is a past member of the Fu- 
ture Farmers of America, an active mem- 
ber of his chiuch group, an ardent horse- 
man and, as his name mi^t imply, a 

Although Wayne has always main- 
tained an interest in dairy farming, the 
trip that he made out west may have 
been the factor that influenced his major- 
ing in agonomy. This past semester, 
Wayne was a winner of tn.; Harry Bur- 
stein Annual Prize for his essay on 

Wayne has been accc pted to Cornell 
and plans to major in Field crops and 
minor in plant physiology. His long range 
ambition is to someday manage a large 
scale grain growing oj«ration in Cali- 
fornia. From seeing his fine academic 
standing arid his wonderful school spirit, 
we all know that Wayne Hunt will al- 
ways be a credit to D.V.C.

Topeka's throwing error to first, and 2 
runs scored and Sheracantes went to sec- 
ond, Paul Snyder took a' called third 
strike as Sheracantes stole third, Jerry 
McCullough singled to left scoring Sher- 
acantes and Miles Bass flied to center to

was talking to me, he quoted "You're 
number one and two men will go places, 
they're the best number one and two

Mr. Linta's Track Team 
Scheduled for Four Meets 

Four meets at home and four on the 
r(»d have been scheduled for the track 
ami field team of Delaware Valley Col- 
lege of Science and Agriculture, Do)4es-. 
town. In {uidition to the dual mt^ts, the 
Aggies will also make appearances in 
the Penn Relays according to the sdied- 
ule released by Ned A. Linta, chairman 
of the Athletic Department. 

The Aggies opened their season on 
April 8 lojing 87% to 43 V4 to Pennsyl- 
vania Mihtary College on Memorial Feld, 
Doylestown, where the Ag^es hold all 
their home meets. Other opponents to 
be met on the home grounds are Sus- 
quehanna University, Lincoln University, 
and Kutztown State. Road engagements 
witfi Gettysburg College, Lycoming Cc^- 
lege, Millersville State, ai^ Cheyney 
State will be met along with the visit 
to the Penn Relays. 

This is the second year for tfie sport 
at the College. In the inaugural season 
last year, the Aggies defeated Kutztown 
State but lost to Gettysburg, Lincoln, 
Millersville State, and Trenton State. 
Having lest only one runner throu^ 
graduation, Ned Linta, m^ serves as 
coach of the sport, can cotuat on a host 
of runners and fieldmen who have had

Strange Castles of Doylestown 

(Contimikt from page 2) 

Storytelling tilea above the library fire- 
place are pmnted out by Mra. Frank 
Swain, 78-year-old cmretaker oi Fonthill 
castle. Note tiles on arched ceiling. 

"This is the Tower of London," she says, 
as you mount a narrow stairway. It may 
be spooky, but it isn't haunted. "Why, 
this place is only 50 years old; it's not 
old enough to be haunted." She visited 
allegedly haiitned English castles when 
she aixi her late husband, also in Mer- 
cer's service, traveled in the British Isles 
in 1925. The trip was the doctor's wed- 
ding gift to them, and they had assign- 
ments from him to visit certain castles 
and send him reports. He never married. 
"He said that with building the castle he 
didn't have time for women," Mrs. Swain 
explains, and except for his staflF, he lived 
alone. ' 

As the machine age came in, Merccr- 
as-anthropologist collected Bucks County 
manual work implements of tl\e passing 
era. His collection is one of the world's 
largest pre-power tool collections, and 
it's housed, along with other museum 
objects, in the Mercer Museum of the 
Bucks County Historical Society. 

The independently wealthy Mercer 
designed, built, and endowed the mu- 
seum in 1916. Like tfie castle, it's of rein- 
forced concrete and was built from the 
inside. Neither blueprint nor model was 
used, and it seems to have been designed 
on the spot. As the house was "for the 
ma.ster," so was the museum built for 
the collection-some of the larger exhibits 
were e\en put in place first and the 
building constructed around them. 

A huge roofed court nearly 100 feet 
high dominates the building, and galler- 
ies and display rooms are built laound it 
on four levels. Suspended from galleries 
and pillars is a collection of "things," 
including early fire engines, wbaleboats, 
chairs, baskets, and 21 cigar-store Indi- 
ans. One display room contains dozens 
of spinning wheels, another has stills, 
while anotlier holds Early-American 
medical and sickroom e(|uipment. Fin- 
ally, at the top are a gallows and wagon 

"People like to joke about the mu- 
seum. They say that if it has one object, 
it has 20 examples of it," says Jack C. 
Potter, the museum's young new curator. 
"I've been here since June, and almost 
ever)' time I wal)( through I see some- 
thing for the first time." 

Potter hopes to introduce some modern 
museum methods — weed out duplica- 
tions, set up displays, and spotlight some 
of the unilluminated objects that hang 
half-hidden in the court. 

The mu«eum contains some 30,000 
objects (over half of which Mercer col- 
hcted) plus the Historical Society lib- 
rary. (The library is heated; the museum 
itself isn't.) "During his collecting days 
Dr. Mercer would go out in the wagon 
with my husband and come back with it 
full; sometimes we'd stay up all night 
going over every little screw and bolt, 
seeing what it was, and laln-ling it," Mrs. 
Swain remembers.

Scouts look on as Aggios down GalUudot. 

More than twenty-five hundred Boy and Cub Scouts, reportedly one 
of the largest single turnouts of Bucks County Scouts, attended the 
second annual Scout Day at DVC on Saturday, September 30th. 

Scout units began arrivkig at 10 a.m. 
for tours of the College's campus and 
farms with members of the Student Coun- 
cil serving as guides. The Scouts, their 
leaders, and many parents remained on 
campus for picnic lunches and stay»l for 
the afternoon football game with Call- 
audet College which the Aggies won 27- 
6 to the delight of the assembled Scouts. 
The Scout attendance at this year's event 
was more than diree times that of the 
first annual Scout Day when 800 boys 
saw the Delaware VaUey-Montclair State 
game on September 24th, 19O0. Boy 
Scout Day will be held each year at the 
College in conjunction with a home foot- 
ball game on Alumni Field. 

According to Raymond W. Hoxworth, 
Scout Executive for the Bucks County 
Council, the College's Scout Day at- 
tracted one of the largest single gather- 
ings of Scouts on record. Robert Rorric, 
District Scout Executive for the Lenape 
District, reported that units from all 
parts of the County attended the event 
which he considered among the most 
successful of such gatherings he has at- 

President James Work commendcKl the 

Scouts and their leaders for their excel- 
lent conduct during the tours and the 
game. He said that it was very gratifying 
to see such wide-spread Country interest 
in the College and its sports program. 


DVC's pond is becoming a reahty. The 
area behind Lasker Hall has been sur- 
veyed by die U.S.D.A. Soil Conservation 
Service, plans have been drawn up, and 
bids are being accepted for its construc- 

Specifications for the pond are a one

depth, depending on costs. Groundwork 
and pipe installation will go to the lowest 
bidder. Dr. Prundeanu and Mr. Blau will 
act as consultants on landscaping and 

Bids have been submitt^ but one 
more is needed to clear legalities. Some 
bids have been within the means of the 
Student Council, which is handling the 
expenses in conjunction with the Class of 
'61, '62, '63, and '64. Construction is 
expected to be completed this fall.

The staff of the FURROW welcomes each and every one of you to 
DVC. We are proud of our school and we hope this pride will grow in 
you, also. 

You are now in the middle of freshman customs and we hope you are 
taking them in the proper light. Freshman customs are not intended to 
harass the freshmen hut to install unity in the freshman class. The name- 
card, the beany, teaming the Alma Mater, and "Button, Frosh," aM have 
good reasons behind them. It doesn't take much thinkmg to see the 
importance of friendship and companionship to young men now out on 
their own; many for the first time. 

In any organization there must he spirit. It is even more necessary 
in college. Don't let our college die but keep its spirit high. Support 
DVC in everything, and let's start by backing it to a Homecoming

DVC on the Move 

Frantz (20) intercepts GalUudet pass and returns for nice yanlage. 


About 4,000 spectators turned out for the Gallaudet— Delaware Valley 
fo^ball game on Alumni Field. The Aggies scored all of their 27 points 
in the first half but that was all they needed to win. 
In the first quarter Bobby Frantz cap- 

ped a 57 yard drive by diving over the 
goal line for a T.D. from one yard out. 
0n the return kickoff Hal Nightwine re- 
covered Rocco DeVito's himble on Gall- 
audet's 27 yard line. Five plays later 
Bobby Frantz threw a 12 yard pass to 
Jerry Gall for a T.D. To finish the quar- 
ter Frantz scored again on a sneak from 
the two. Just before the half ended Tom- 
my Moore threw a 53 yard pass to Jerry 
Gall for another 6 points from a short 
punt formation. Out of four attempts Hal 
Ni^twine kicked 3 conversions success- 

The only score for Gallaudet occurred 
in the last play of the third quarter when 
James Macfadden ran for a T.D. from 
the Aggie 19 yard line. Gallaudet had 
another drive going for them in the forth 
quarter but it was stopped when Pete 
Zanette recovered a fumble on the Ag- 
gie S yard line. 

The Aggie line stood out offensively 
as well as defensively as they were inter- 
cepting passes and recovering key fumb-

The combined pep rally and bonfire 
held Friday night symbolized the first 
home football game for DVC. President 
Work gave an inspiring talk to the @roup 
gathered saying that, "Fighting hearts 
can't be beat." Also present were Mr.

thing else, each member of the team 
must play with his whole heart in order 
to have a satisfactory season. The coach 
of the football team, Mr. Robert Chiodi 
gave the closing words — "a combination 
of spirit and desire is the formula of a 
successful team." 

AGGIES, 40-13 

Montclair scored 3 TD's in the first 
half and 3 TD's in the second half as 
they defeated the Aggies 40-13. Dorni- 
nick Deo scored all three touchdowns in

For the Aggies in the second half, 
Bobby Frantz scored a TD, from the one 
yard line. Hal Nightwine's kick was good 
for the extra point. The only otfier time 
the Aggies scored was in tfie last mo- 
ments of the last quarter when Peter 
Blodgett recovered Pete Carmichael's 
fumble in the end zone. The kick was no 
good. The Aggie leaders for the day 


For once the Aggies came out on the 
long end of a squeaker as they defeated 
Lycoming College 7-6. 

The Aggies 8 pointer came in the 
closing minutes of the second period 
when Jerry Gall took a pass from Tommy 
Moore on the Lycoming 25 yard Hne and 
scampered the rest of the way for a TD.

wine kicked the PAT which turned out 
to be the deciding point of the game. 

Lycoming set up their tally early in 
the third period when they recovered a 
fumble on the Aggie 13 yard line. Five 
plays later Harry Whitehill scored from 
one yard out. 

The Aggies stood out defensively as 
Tommy Moore, Terry Scheetz, and Dick

Intramural sports at D.V. are provide 
for the enjoyment of the entire student 
body. There are ten intramural sports 
which are open to members of all classes. 

Those sports which are ofiFered include: 
touch football, volleyball, basketball, 
Softball, golf, tennis, aerial tennis, table 
tennis, horseshoes, archery, and bowlin.g 

These intramurals create interest to- 
ward the winning of the Supremacy 
Award, which is given to the club cwn- 
piling the most points. These points are 
earned by winning the varimis intramtiral 
sports. This award is usually won through 
good team play, good sportsmanship, 
and the proper attitude. 

The intramural program has had con- 
tinued success in tfie past years. It is 
hoped that this interest yviSt continue to 
rise in the years to come. 

Any Freshman desiring to compete for 
any club may do so by signing up vdth 
the Intramural Chairman of that club, 
or by seeing Mr. Linta in the gym.

Barn Lost to Flames 

A College bam, located on farm No. 
4, burned to the ground on Monday, 
September 25. 

According to College business mana- 
ger, Daniel Miller, the bam contained a 
quantity of hay and straw. He estimated 
the loss at $12,000 to 15,000. 


Dr. Louis Leibovitz, professor of avian 
pathology, and Director of the Regional 
Poultry Diagnostic Laboratory at the Col- 
lege, presented a research paper at the 
thirty-third Northeastern Conference on 
Avian Diseases which was conducted 
from June 19th to 21st at West Virginia 
University, Morgantown, West Virginia. 

The paper, which dealt with imusual 
parasitism found in birds brought to the 
CoUege's Diagnostic Laboratory diuing 
a five-year period, presented a series of 
case reports and data covering parasitic 
infestations in both domestic and wild 
birds. Acc(»ding to Dr. Leibovitz, par- 
asitism is one of the most important 
causes of disease in birds and is, there- 
fore, a vital segment of avian pathology 
and is often inter-related to the induction 
of other forms of disease conditions. By 
focusing greater attention on the prob- 
lem of parasitism, Dr. Leibovitz hopes to 
encourage further contributions to the 
knowledge of avian pathology.

Alumni Homecoming Meaing to Feature Fomm 

\ £ I It jL £ A A* • .• ^C Constitution Chanm up for Vote 

Marked by Many Activities ^ 

PrMid«nt James Work 0r««tt junior Jack Wiiliamt and his data, Connio Clamonts, at tho 
Varsity CIvb's Groan and Gold Donco which climaxod an svantful Homocoming Day. 

The combined field activities and the dsoice sponsored by the Varsity 
Club, made up of those students who participate in the college sports, 
commenced this years program to acquaint the students' parents and 
friends with D.V.C. 

The finale of the day was Ae Dance, 
beginning at 8:30 and ending at 12:30. 
The gym had been converted into a gala 
baUroom by the club members, who gave 
their time for the enjoyment of all. One 
could easily see that many hours of work 
went into the decorating of the gym. A 
cozy atmosphere was created by lights 
that dianged color throughout the ni^t. 
A hi^ly talented twelve piece orchestra, 
led by Eddie Holmes, provided fine qual- 
ity music for the evening. 

During an intermission a drawing was 
held for a transistor radio, rafiled by die 
Varsity Club. The winner was Robert 
Sabol, cUiss of '63. 

Homecoming Pep Rally 

There was a pep rally held on Thunday 
night, October 12th, before the Home- 
coming Football Came. In the past, a 
combing annual Homecoming boi^e 
and pep rally has been held on die Friday 
before Homecoming, but this year 
changes were to be had; the bonfire was 
a prelude to the first home football game. 

For die October 12th rally the fresh- 
men were gathered on the football field 
were they were hit with "button Froth" 
from the Sophomores. Then they were 
marched around the campus, led by die 
Aggie band, yelling BEAT KUTZTOWN, 
which the football team proceeded to do. 


Despite the cold and rainy weather, 
many loyal D.V.C. fans, including many 
returning Alumni, cheered the Aggies on 
to victory at d« annual Homecoming 
game. The weather failed to dampen the 
spirits of the Aggi^ rooters. Because of an 
ahnost continuous downpour, the half- 
time activities had to be canceled until 
four o'clock, when they were held in 
Segal Hall Auditorium. Many former 
Aggie players were present at this time 
and each received a certificate from the 
Delaware Valley College signed by the 
Alumni President, President Work, and 
our Athletic Director, Mr. Linta. 

All the clubs did a very good job in 
setting up some terrific floats and dis- 
plays, which added greatfy to the Home- 
coming activities. Aftor much considera- 
tion on the part of the judges, the Animal 
Husbandry Club came out on top with 
the Ornamental Horticulture, Dairy So- 
ciety, ami Poultry Club taking the next 
three places in that order. Although the 
rain ^aked almost all concerned, the 
1961 Homecoming was considered a real 

Pond Construction Begins 

The work on the pond behind Lasker 
Hall has been progressing with amazing 
speed. The freshmen who have failed to 
follow customs are doing the majority of 
the work, led by the sophomore class. 

All the bids are in and the aproximate 
cost will be around $2,000. 

The brush and trws in the immediate 
area have been cleared away and the 
workers have been cleaning the edges to 
lend to the beauty of the pond. The work 
crew consists of approximately 15 work- 
ers each day. The bulldozer started work 
on Thursday, Octob«- 19. 

Praliminary work of cloorin« trooa from 
pond sito has bof vn. 

Work is expected to be completed this 
fall and ice skating should be one of the 
pond's fint uses. Fishing should follow in 
the spring. 

The pond was made available by funds 
from the student council and donations 
from the Classes of '61, '^, '63, '64. 

The $500 donation from last year's 
graduating class was very much appre- 

The pond will be a welcome addition 
to die campus and will serve as a means 
of many hours of enjoyment for die 
student body. 

The Stud«it Council, under president 
Kirk Brown, has called a meeting of the 
entire student body for Wednesday, No- 
vember 1st, at 11 a.m. in the gymnasium. 
The meeting, which replaces for the day 
the regular bi-weekly student assembly, 
will serve to acquaint the students with 
the members of Council and its several 
standing committees and to orient them 
to the functions of Council on our campus. 

Highh'ghting the meeting will be a vote 
by the assembled students on the i»o- 
posed changes to Council's constitution. 
These proposals have been posted on the 
bulletin boards and due to their length 
cannot be read at the meeting. K\\ stud- 
ents are requested to familiarize tfiem- 
selves with the suggested revisions and 
be prepared to vote at die mating. 

Attendance is required at tlte session 
and attendance slips wfil be ci liected. It 
is hoped that the students \dll give 
serious consideration to the proposed 
changes since Student Council's purpose 
is fo serve the varied mterest$ of our 

An open forum, during which Council 
members will answer questions from the 
floor concerning the constitution revisions 
will be featured. Ceneral business and 
recommendations will also be in ord^ at 
that time. 

The interest and support of all die 
students is of extreme importance if 
Council is to provide proper repre-

Aggies Down Kutztomt 

Ground and Aerial Attack Upend Upstaters 

Kutztown State became the Aggies* third victim of the current jprid 
campaign as they fell before a spirited assault on Alumni Field before 
a large and enthusiastic Homecoming audience 12-6. The Aggies lost no 
opportunity to draw first blood as they took the opening kicko£F and 
marched eighty yards to score. Dan Leaty's plunge from the 2 capped 
a series of eleven plays which featured halfbacks Brodie Crawford and 
Ron Stein on most of die carries. Hal 
Nightwine's extra point try was wide of 
its mark. 

Not to be outdone by the Aggies, Kutz- 
town took die next series pf plays and 
tied &e score after a 51-yard drive led to 
Gary Sinjon's 14-yard nm to paydirt. 
Darryl McCabe blocked K'town's try for 
the extra point. 

In the fourth quarter the Aggies took 
to the air behind the talented aerial 
combo of quarterback Tom Moore and 
end Jerry Gall to score on a 17-yard pass- 
run play. This was the third score this 
season to come from the Moore-Gall com- 
bination and was the cUncher against the 
visitors. In all, Gall accounted for three 
passes for a total of 35 yards. Bob Frantz 
tossed one and Moore was credited with 
two. Freshman fullback Richard Baughn 
was die day's leading ground gainer with 
77 yards made in 22 carries. Defensively, 
the Aggies were led by Darryl McCabe, 
M^o recovered a K'town fumble in the 
Aggie end zone, Wheeler Aman, Terry 
Scheetz, Dick Keglovits, Pete Zanette, 
Tony Perri, and Bob Frantz. The game

Intramural Corner 

The 1961 Touch FootbaD and Volley^ 
ball Intramural League season got off to 
a rousing start October 18, with 2 games 
played in each sport 

The two football batdes were staged 
on the immense stretch of level ground 
between the Alumni House and the Poul- 
try Lab. Chalk-lined fields, laid out by 
Ned Linta, athletic director, provided an 
added incentive for the players. 

In one contest the Food Industry Club 
scored an impressive 19-6 victory over 
the Dairy Society. The ability to connect 
with the long pass was instrumental in the 
triumph for the F.I. men. 

The other game was an excituig come- 
from-behimi victory for the Horticulture 
"B" Team over the Omamentel Horti- 
culture "B" Team. After trailing 8-0, the 
Hort. Team started to click and went on 
to win, 13-8. 

In die evening, in Neuman Gymnasium 
two volleyball contests took place. In 
both events tiM victcmes were clear-cut 
and decisive. The Science Club defeated 
the Food Industry Club 2 g^mes to 0, 
and the Horticulture "A" Team beat the 
Animal Husbandry "B" Team, also by a 
2 to score.

G. C Homecoming Spoiled 

Aggies Bring Back 6-0 Victory 

Fast gaining the reputation as spoilers of homecomings, the Aggies 
added another victim to the list by making Grove City win nmnber 4 of 
the current campaign. The Aggies were anything but gracious guests at 
the western Pennsylvania College's elaborate homecoming observance as 
they handed their hosts a 6-0 decision. The Aggies started on the trail 
as spoilers of homecomings by picking oJ0F favored Lycoming 7-6 and 

repeated their e£Forts against Grove City, 

Aggie Hoopsters Set 
20-6ome Schedule 

Delaware Valley's badcetball team, 
under new head coach Bob Finn and as- 
sistant Henry Geerken, will play a twenty 
game schedule according to an annoxmce- 
ment by athletic director Ned A. Linta. 
Opening on Tuesday, December 5, wiA 
Philadelphia College of Bible and closing 
on Tuesday, February 27, with Eastern 
Baptist College, the card features eleven 
road engagements and nine home en- 
counters for the Aggie hoopsten. Bob 
Finn took over the coaching helm after 
Jim RadcliFs job aligned him to Harris- 
burg, Pa. The new assistant coach Hank 
Geerken is a member of the College 
faculty, teaching in the food industry 
major. Firm, a membor of the faculty at 
Central Bucks High School, is a graduate 
of East Stroudsburg State College and 
former Central Bucks High basketball 
coach. He joined the Delaware Valley 
coaching stafiF last season as RadclifTs 
assistant and j.v. coach. Geerken is a 
graduate of Cornell University who 
joined the Delaware Valley faculty tfiis 
year. As new j.v. coach, Geerken will 
prepare his charge for their eighteen- 
game card which will be played as pre- 
liminary games for the varsity contests. 

The schedule will pit die Aggies in 
home-and-home clashes with their Dela- 
ware Valley Conference rivals — ^Eastern 
Baptist College, Philadelphia College of 
Pharmacy and Science, Rutgen College 
of South Jenwy, and new member Lin- 
coln University. Other lK)me-and-home 
games have been set with Seton Hall 
University of Paterson, Kutztown State, 
and Philadelphia College of Bible. Single 
games with Haverford College, Pennsyl- 
vania Military College, Jersey City State, 
Newark State, Fairleigh Dickinson of 
Madison, and Glassboro State are also 
listed on the schedule. Varsity home 
games in die Neumaim Gymnasium will 
start at 8:15 p.m. with j.v. tapoff set for 
6:45 p.m. The lone exception to this 
home starting time will be the game with 
Penna. Mibtary College on Saturday, De- 
cember 16th which will start at 3:15 p.m. 
with j.v. tapo£F at 2 p.m. 

Last year's varsity turned in a 5-15 
record while Finn's jayvees were 7-9. 
Finn plans to go with a fast-breaking club 
whenever possible as he exiiects more 
polished performances from the varsity 
which will be composed mostly of juniors 
with two seniors. A good bit of help is 
expected from several sophomorM and 
freshmen who should give the dub suf- 
ficient fast and taU personnel to carry out 
Finn's plans. Practice sessi<ms opened on 
Wedn^ay, October 18, in preparation 
{<« the campaign. 

again in the role of underdogs. 

After a scoreless first half, the Aggies 
took the second half boot and went 74 
yards in 12 plays. Quarterback Bob 
Frantz went the last two on a sneak. 

Twice DelVal stopped Grove City 
drives within the Aggie 20. 

But the Aggies had offensive punch of 
their own, too. Tom Moore stopped one 
Grove penetration with an interception 
on the Aggie 1. The ex-Pennridge quarter- 
back ran the ball out to the Aggie 19. 
Eighty yards and eleven inches later, the 
Aggies were halted one inch from a TD. 

Offensively Frantz had his bf:st day of 
the year. The Agg e flipper completed 10 
of 12 passes for 105 yards. Dick Baughn 
gained 59 yards in 14 carries. 

Brodie Crawford raced 53 yards in 11 
tries, Jerry Gall grabbed 5 passes and 
Earl Howett snared 2. 

Defensively, in addition to his inter- 
ception, Moore batted two tosses down. 
Center Terry Scheetz intercepted a pair 
of passes, Frantz grabbed another. 

Dick Keglovits, Pete Zanette, Tony 
Perri, Dick Haggan, and Darryl McCabe 
led a stout hne, particularly on defense, 
with bruising play that wrecked every 
Grove City caper.

S. G. Constitution Approved 

Forum Attracts Large Turnout 

On November 1st, 1961 at 11a.m. in the Neumann Cumnasium, 
throngs of the student body and their oflBcers overwhehned the portals 
of the massive structure. This v^ras die chosen day when the Student 
Government Constitution of the Delaware Valley College was to be 
ratified. This was the formal sanctioning of the revolutionary new 
Constitution, revised from the antiq uated one. 

Dean Meyer opened the meeting by 
revealing the pohtical philosophies of the 
Student Government. Our Government 
was founded on firm purpose; guiding 
and protecting the welfare of its found- 
ers and their posterity. Our Student Gov- 

ernment reafiirms this truth by practic- 
ing the ideologies of those it represents. 

The formal session started after Dean 
Meyer completed his speech. The Stu- 
dent Govenunent President, Kirk Brown, 
presided. The president introduced the 
Student Goverrunent Members; among 
the representatives was Mr. Fulcoly, 
Faculty Advisor to the Student Govern- 
ment. After Kirk had finished introduc- 
ing' the elected ofiBcers, John Mertz, Sec- 
retary of the Student Govenunent, gave 
his report. It consisted of a list of achieve- 
ments and aspirations of the Student 
Government and Student Body. 

James Rothschild's report was then 
submitted to the assembly. He being the 
Treasurer of the Student Government, it 
naturally encompassed the financial end 
of the business. 

The session was again turned over to 
Kirk to direct the meeting towards the 
main order of business, the revision of 
the Constitution. Before proceeding im- 
mediately into that he primed the Stu- 
dent Body and Student Govenunent to- 
ward thinking on matters of such import, 
ance as the Constitution with a short 
speech. He stated the functions of the 
government on our campus, and the need 
of the students to voice their opinions to 
their representatives. He also advocated 
the attendance of the student body to the 
Student Government meetings. 

His provocative presentation indicated 

lasting e£Fects during the open forum of 
the meeting. 

During the fonun members of the stu- 
dent body were invited to pose questions 
and suggestions concerning the Consti- 
tutional revisions. The response of tlw 
student body was overwhehning. 

Several members of the student body 
took the limelii^t by attacking Article 
IV concerning the chosing of officers by 
and from the members of the Student 
Government. This attack was bombarded 
by artillery by Student Goverrunent.

Freshmen Elect Officers 

At I P.M. on Wednesday, October 25, 
the first meeting of the class of 1965 was 
called to order in the auditorium of Segal 
Hall. Presiding were the presidents of the 
three upper classes, Darvin Boyd of the 
class of '64, Peter Hoffman of the class 
of '63, and Kirk Brown, of the Senior 
Class. The purpose and the outcome of 
the meeting was the election of the first 
set of officers of the Freshman class. The 
following were elected: 

President— James Harteis (from Eb- 
bensburg. Pa., a dairy Husbandry ma- 

Vice President — Charles Roth (a Hort. 
major from East Patterson, New Jersey.) 

Treasurer — Duane Rodes (Aiwther 
Dairy Major from Middletovm, Pa. 

Secretary — William Smith (from Ab- 
bington. Pa., an Agronomy student.) 

Student Council — Doiiald Day (An 
An. Hus. major from Upper Darby, Pa.) 

Congratulations to the new Freshman 
Class Officers, and the best of luck to 
each of you! 

Freshman Customs End 

Freshman customs came to a fiery end 
last week at the annual bonfire built by 
the freshman and directed by the Sopho- 
more class. The freshmen ended customs 
with a pep rally and a march around 
campus led by the band and the Sopho- 
mores' familiar cry of "Button Frosh!" At 
the end of the march the band played 
the Alma Mater and President Work and 
Coach Chiodi gave words of encoiuage- 
ment to the football team. 

The freshmen then started their an- 
nual jaunt around the bon fire with every 
member shedding his sign and dink. 

The staff of the funow would like to 
congratulate the Sophomore Class on the 
fine job they performed in initiating the 
freshman and helping them to bind to- 
gether into a strong and unified class. 
Special credit must be extended to Bob 
Hoffner for taking the responsibility of 
seeing that this year's Sophomore Class 
had its "Norm" 

The talk of the campus is that there 
were a few wet Sophomores roaming 
campus that night seeking refuge from 
the freshman. 

College Mixers 

Football, Cross-Country Teams 

To Be Honored At Awards Dinner 

Special Student Tickets Available at Gym for $1.50 

D.V. C.'s football and o-oss-country teams will be honored at an 
Awards Dinner which will be held at the Warrington Country Club on 
Tuesday, November 14th, at 7:30 p.m. 

Highlights of the event will be the 

conferring of special awards for outstand- 
ing performances on both teams and the 
awarding of varsity letters and sweat^s 
to those athletes who meet the standards 
established for each team by the Col- 
lege's faculty committee on athletics. 

Included among the special awards is 
the coveted President's Award, presented 
annually by President Work to the noiem- 
ber of the football team, preferably a 
senior, who is judged to be the team's 
outstanding play» and has won one of 
the three specific football awaids. The 
three specific awards are the Ross Triol 
Memorial Award, presented to the mem- 
ber of the football team who best demon- 
strates qualities of leadership, sportsman- 
ship, and loyalty, the Samuel Rudley 
Award to the outstanding lineman, and 
the award to the outstanding backfield 
man. Also to be presented at the diimer 
is the loyalty award, sponsored by the 
Central Bucks Junior Chamber of Com- 
merce, presented to a student for out- 
standing loyalty to and support of the 
College's intercollegiate athletic program, 
and the Edwin H. Weil Trophy emble- 
matic of a .500 or better season. 

The Student Government, with Wil- 
liam Patchell as chairman of the Social 
Committee, is trying to arrange danc« 
between D.V.C. and girls colleges and 
nursing schools to be held in the near 
future. So far Bill has made contact with 
Abington Nursing School aiid things look 
pretty hopeful. The plan is to have one 
dance here at the college and one dance 
at Abington. Also Bill and Mr. Fulcoly 
went down to Beaver College during the 
week of November 6, to arrange for a 
dance to be held either here or at Beaver. 

The dances that will be scheduled at 
D.V.C. will be held in Lasker Hall. The 
dress will be informal and the music will 
be furnished by records. In most cases 
the girls will receive their transportation 
by means of buses. 

The success of these mixers depends on 
you, the student. This is another way in 
which the Student Govenunent helps to 
serve the student body.

pointed Supervisor of Housing at D.V.C.

Students"; "Office Machine Equipment"; 
and "Graduate School Admissions." A 
special report on the latter topic, to be 
formally considered for the first time by 
the admissions officers, will be given to 
the entire convention at 11 a.m. on Satur- 
day, November 25th, after additional 
workshops on "College and University 
Admission for 1962" and "Hints and 
Helps for New Registrars."

The independent student body mem- 
bers felt that the President of the senior 
class should not hold the office of Stu- 
dent Government President. They also 
felt that the president should be elected 
by the Student Body and not by the 
Student Government. 

This recomnoendation was disputed un- 
til the technicalities of the Federal Gov- 
errunent came into play. Even the Elec- 
toral College System of the United States 
was disputed at this time. It did indicate, 
however, the enthusiasm and serious 
thoughtfulness of the individual students 
toward matters of government which are 
in play affecting the society in which 
they live. 

Article IV concerning the quorum was 
also disputed. It was recommended and 
passed that attendance should not be 
taken at Student Body meetings. 

The rest of the revised Constitution 
was accepted by the Student Body. 

It was pointed out by Dean Meyer 
that this was the first meeting of its 
type ever to be held on the campus. The 
response and democratic procedure of the 
meeting was inspiring. It is sincerely 
hoped that all future meetings display 
at much individual inititive. 

Judging Team Competes 
In Two Shows 

The hvestock judging team represented 
DVC at two inter-collegiate competitions 
held in conjunction with livestock ex- 
hibitions in Harrisburg, Pa., and Thimon- 
ium, Maryland. 

The team, with its coach Dr. Pelle, at- 
tended the Pennsylvania Livestock Ex- 
hibition in Harrisburg and judged twelve 
clasps of livestock, including five classes 
of beef cattle, three of sheep, and four of 
swine, on Thursday, November 9th. After 
the awards breakfast on Friday, Novem- 
ber 10th, the team left for Ae Eastern 
National Livestock Exhibition in Thimon- 
ium, Maryland, where an intercollegiate 
competition is being held Saturday, No- 
vember 11th, with twelve classes of live- 
stock being judged. The team returns on 
Sunday, November 12th. 

At the Pennsylvania Exhibition, the 
College exhibited three Hampshire lambs, 
one Hereford heifer, and one Aberdeen 
Angus heifer. The animals were under 
the charge of Ira Salomon, Douglass 
Brown, and August Sauer. 

In addition to Ira Salomon the live- 
stock judging team was comprised of 
seniors Philo Chapman, Walter Cross, 
Norwood McCuigan, Anthony Steiert, 
and Charles Wira, and juniors Robert 
Sabol, Max Heflich, and Roger Vander 

Comacopiii Piogresses 

Under the able leadership of its Co- 
Editors, Dick Swaddiammer and Neil 
Gabriel, the Cornucopia this week is mak- 
ing progress towards its first deadline, on 
November 15. The first deadline will con- 
sist of the preliminary plan of the year- 
book. Layout Editor Bob Frantz is mak- 
ing plans for one of the nicest Yearbooks 
in many years. The typing of the Cornu- 
copia is going ahead smoothly under the 
able direction of the Typing Editor, Ron 
Cole, and his staff. Advertising manager 
Fred Armbruster and his staff are pleased 
at the response of the student body with 
respect to the purchasing of "Boosters." 
Those among the student body who have 
not yet done so, are urged to support 
this, the College's most impressive pub- 
lication, by purchasing a "Booster." 

The Co-Editors and their staff wish 
to thank all who have co-operated with 
them in the support of the Cornucopia, 
and hope to publish a book that you, the 
student body, will be proud to show 

Federal Service Exam 

The U. S. Civil Service Commission 
annoimced that the Federal Service En- 
trance Examination will be conducted 
on this campus on Satiu'day morning 
November 18. 

The FSEE is used to fill entrance posi- 
tions with starting salaries of $4,345 and 
$5,355 a year, in such fields as general 
administration, economics, social scien- 
ces, business analysis and regulation, so- 
cial security administration, management 
analysis, personnel management, agricul- 
ture, biological science, and statistics. 

It is also used to fill a limited number 
of management-intern jobs at $5,355 to 
$6,435 a year. Shortage category jobs in 
such fields as engineering and the physi- 
cal sciences, accounting, and a few odier 
technical occupations are filled through 
separate examinations. 

The tests are open to college jimiors, 
seniors, and graduates, plus others with 
equivalent experience. Because the list of 
ehgibles from the new FSEE will super- 
sede the list from last year's examination, 
persons wishing to have continuing eli- 
gibility must re-establish it by taking the 
new examination. 

CSC urges interested persons to take 
the FSEE as soon as possible in order t0| 
receive early consideration for full-time 
appointment. In addition to being the 
gateway to full-time careers, die FSEE 
enables college juniors to compete for a 
limited number of summer jobs between 
the junior and senior years. 

Vliet, all majoring in animal husbandry. 
The team doing the actual judging was 
made up of five members and two alter- 
nates selected from the nine students who 
made the trip. The team members had 
to support their reasons for classifying 
the animals in at least eight classes. The 
two students who were not included on 
the official team also judged but did not 
give reasons and their success in classi- 
fying did not count in the team score. 
Chiefly, they gained experience to aug- 
ment certain areas of course work and 
prepared for future contests. The com- 
petition results will appear in the next

The first program, popularly known as 
PLC (Platoon Leaders Class) can be 
simimed up briefly by the following 

(a) Remain in school with draft de- 

(b) No on-campus meetings or drills 
— just two (2) six week sunMner courses 
at Quantico, Virginia. 

(c) Pay while in summer tarining — 
and increased pay later as as o^er by 
reason of seniority. 

(d) Commissioning on graduation day 
followed by three (3) years active duty. 

Under the Officer Camlidate Course, 
for seniors and recent graduates, com- 
pletion of a ten vi'eek Officer Candidate 
Schiol at Quantico, Virginia, is followed 
by commissioning as a second lieutenant 
and three (3) years of active duty. 

In the case of aviators, the active duty 
obligation is approximately a year and 
a half longer because of ffight training. 

Those young men who are interested 
in becoming a part of the finest military 
organization in the world are invited to 
contact the Officer Selection Team when 
it visits D.V.C.

Nightwine Boots Kings to 16-12 Loss 


The Aggies, though injury riddled, de- 
feated King's CoUego at Kingston Sta- 
dium in Willces-Barre, 16-12. 

The Aggies scored first when they re- 
covered a fumble on King's 35 yard line. 
Since they couldn't score a TD, Hal 
Nightwine kicked an 18 yard field goal. 
It was the first of the year for him. 

The Aggies scored again when Tommy 
Moore unleashed a W yard pass to Jerry 
Gall. This was the only play in this drive. 
King's scored their TD in the second 
period when Joe Delinsky took a pass 
from Milo Moran for 16 yards. King's 
went ahead in the third quarter when 
John Vatsock busted over from the one 
yard line. This was the final play of a 
65-yard drive which took 14 plays to 

The Aggies scor«i their final TD in the 
third quarter when Brodie Crawford 
plunged over from King's 2 yard line. 
It was Brodie's first TD of the year and 
Nightwine converted the extra point. The 
TD climaxed a 72 yard drive which took 
8 plays to complete. The two key plays 
in this series were a 24 yard pass from 
Moore to Gall and a 33 yard pass inter- 
ference play also from Moore to Gall. 
This pass interference play was an auto- 
matic first down for the Aggies. 

Delaware Valley played defense for 
most of the night as Pere Zanette, Ed 
Taggart, and Darryl McCabe recovered 
a fumble each. Tommy Moore intercep- 
ted a pass late in the fourth quarter 
•which finally put King's out of commis- 
sion once and for aU. Others who stood 
out defensively were Dick Keglovits, 
Terry Scheetz, Richard Haggan, Tony 
Perri, Brodie Crawford, Jerry Gall, Tom 
Oswald, Bob Frantz, and Pete Blodgett.

Aggies 30-0 

Susquehanna's ground game was too 
much for the Aggies as the Crusaders 
scored a touchdown in each quarter to 
defeat the Aggies 30-0. From the open- 
ing kickoff Susquehanna moved 54 yards 
in 11 plays with the final play being a 
9 yard run by Don Green. Green passed 
to Larry Kerstetter for the extra 2 points 
Kerstetter scored a touchdown in the 
second quarter from the 1 yard line cap- 
ping a 37 yard drive. Green passed again 
to Kerstetter for the extra 2 points. 

In the third quarter, on the opening 
kicko£F, the Aggies used the shotgun to 
get to Susquehanna's 34 yard line but 
Green intercepted a pass on his own 17 
and returned it to his own 23. Thrw 
plays later he ran 69 yards to paydirt. 
In the last moments of the fourth quar- 
ter, Terry Kissinger romped 25 yards for 
a TD. Tom Samuel kicked 2 extra points 
for the afternoon. 

The Aggies used the shotgun for most 
of the afternoon as Bobby Frantz com- 
pleted 8 passes for 90 yards and Tommy 
Moore completed 6 passes for 72 yards. 
Richard Baughn carried the ball 8 times 
for 50 yards. Pete 2^nette, Darryl Mc- 
Cabe, Terry Scheetz, Dick Keglovibi,

The fight for the Intramural Touch 
Football Title appears to be a rough one 
as all the teams are extremely well 

However the Food Industry Club, un- 
defeated in four games, looms as the 

favorite on the strength that they ave 
already knocked oflF tei two closest com- 
petitors, Hort and Dairy. The F. I. Team 
is a well balanced one with Tom Day at 
quarterback, Jim Russo and Jim Hower 
at the halfs, Ned Guardenier and Steve 
Ck)lbum on the ends, and a stalwart line 
in the presence of Dave Lustig and Jim 

This year the games have all been 
ertraordinarily close. Both An. Hus. or 
Agronomy, so far with only one win be- 
tween them, could both have been in 
contention had a few breaks gone their 
way. In many instances the extra point 
has been the deciding factor in the game. 

Following are the standings through 
November 6:

Hort Volleyball Champs 

The intramural volleyball season ended 
November 2 with the Horticulture Club 
emerging as the victor. They were un- 
defeated in 8 gaxnes. 

There was no question about the top 
three teams in Ae league, as Dairy "A" 
with 7 wins and 1 loss came in second, 
followed J)y An. Hus. with a 6 and 2 
record. Only one oth^ team managed to 
play .500 ball and that was Science with 
4 wins and 4 losses. 

The big game of the season was on 
October 31 when the Hort team clashed 
with Dairy "A". At tibe time both clubf 
were tied for first place, and sported 
identical 6 and records. It was evident 
that this game would mean the cham- 
pionship. In the exciting and close play 
that ensued Hort won two contests to 
Dairy's one, providing the victory mar- 
gin for the game and eventually the 

Members of the Hort team were: Tom
