THE CLASS OF 1950
Published \by the Senior Class
NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE
FARM SCHOOL PENNA.
To us, the Class of 1950, Commencement Day means far more than the receiving
of a college degree. It means the termination of a pioneer spirit that was kindled
within us four years ago.
In May 1946 The National Farm School became a junior college and it was
shortly afterwards that we arrived as the first class. Our first year was indeed both
trying and discouraging for us as well as for the administration in many respects,
but the strong and the determined survived. The folloAving year brought another class
to help in the pioneer endeavor and the efforts of all ^\ ere finally rcAvarded in Mav 1948
Avhen The National Agricultural College was established as a senior college and author-
ized to grant a bachelor degree in agriculture.
Being a four-year college entailed many more headaches for an already over-
burdened junior class. It meant the writing of a student council constitution, runniufr
the kind of a prom expected of us, indoctrinating another ne^v class with the pioneer
spirit, designing of a new college seal, and finally the inauguration of an annual Field
Day. Doing all these things for the first time and establishing certain other precedents
has had its thrills and satisfactions as well as its hardships.
As our last official pioneer act we have compiled in this book of memories a record
of the days spent at the National Agricultural College, the tangible events and acts
which have been our part in helping to establish this new college.
There is, however, a great deal that does not appear within these covers. The in-
tangible spirit of the Class of '50 we coidd neither sketch nor photograph. Thus, the
most important part, has no record here. The contents herein are behind us now, but
to us it is more than you see here. It is the spirit, the determination, and the zeal
we are taking with us.
And so, in a spirit of gratitude and of farewell, we offer this, our vearbook. as a
tribute to the ideals for which our alma mater was instituted.

"I believe that happiness is the highest ffood,
and that peace and good- will are the best
means for its attainment."
A Tribute . . .
'UT FOR the vision and foresight of Dr. Joseph Krans-
kopf, our founder, ^ve would not have had the oppor-
tunity to receive this integrated education in practical
and scientific agriculture.
In return for the wisdom he showed many years ago,
we offer this ^^ork in humble tribute to his ever inspiring
EVERY college needs someone to give it a special kind of love.
We have a great deal more than this in oiur President, Mr.
James Work, whose untiring and unselfish devotion has
guided our college through the turbulent waters of the transition
He has done more than any other to make the hopes and
dreams of the foimder. Dr. Joesph Krauskopf, come true.
We owe him so much yet we can offer him so little. We
hereby signify how much and how little by dedicatuig this record
of our memories in grateful affection to hun.

WITH the rest of the world tr\ing to
retire to a state of normal routme. there
arose in quiet Bucks County a fearful
anticipation of a new invasion at the National
Parni School and Junior College. A multitude
of the local populace weren't aware of the
charm, potency and energy of the new in-
vaders . . . but they were soon to learn
that the capabihties of the new class were
unliirited. In this case however, the ag-
gressors were hardly dangerous, for they were
the first class of the newly formed National
Farm School and Junior College. So. on a
warm mid-September day in 1946, the Class of
1950 came into being.
Our mtrodiiction to the college was a pleas-
ant one. Most of us picked up the tempo and
lollowed in the scheme of thuigs rather
smoothly. We learned fast, both from the
tours of inspection of the campus and from the
extended efforts of the professors. We metic-
ulously investigated the various buildings and
departments of the school and finally resigned
ourselves to fate.
\^ e soon found that there was more to college
life here than just stutUes. There were details
to perform. Everyone took his turn at waiting
on tables in the dining hall. The speed of the
waiters was amazing. Some possessed the
speed of a sphtting atom, while others com-
pared to the Lumbricus terrestris. It took us
some time to master a heavily loaded tray,
especially with such booby-traps as shppery
floors and swinging doors.
The clubs were organized, a student comicil
was formed and our class gradually began to
take shape as officers were elected and class
meetings were held. One of the greatest
imifying forces durmg the first year was a
reasonably successfid football team. We won
four and lost two.
It was a terribJy cold winter confining us
most of the time. The topics of conversation
generally dwelt aroiuid our reasons for being
in school, the fairer sex, world aifairs, spirits
(not to be confused ^nth spiritualism), agri-
cidtural progress, personal experiences, fairer
sex and spirits. A very cultured group indeed!
With the advent of the new year we were
blessed with the smiling, sober faces of our
second section, who were as motley a group
ever to set foot on the hallowed soil of the
National Farm School and Jmiior College.
This group of cultivated students came to be
a great bimch of fellows and a credit to an)
college. Of course, some of the professors
viewed the mass with much scepticism. And
small wonder, when some of the grades were
It finally dawTied on the more mentally alert
students to initiate the newly introduced
group. So on a particularly miserable night,
the orgy took place. It was beUeved in higher
circles that too many students took fiendish
delight in carrying out the orgy. Many of these
forms of introduction have subsided since then
possibly due to the strong protests of individ-
uals, who were suffering from the paranoia of
The oncoming of spring found many of the
Atlas-Dimaggio combination straining their
thirty -four chests and forty -four waistlines at
home plate. Various ball teams were organ-
ized and the season began. Mingled with the
shouts of the mnpires strike and ball decisions
were selected caustic innuendoes usually cU-
rected at the more prominent placers. The first
season ended with a minimum of casualties.
The dance sponsored by the Varsity Club in
the g) m was probably the finest dance ever held
at the college. The decorations were so luiusual
that they would have been worthy of a first
prize in any flower show. This particular dance
had a great effect in setting a high standard for
all the dances that were to follow.
With final examinations rounding out fresh-
man year, anxious eyes were focused on the
impending field work of the summer. This was
probably the first real introduction to the
various phases of agriculture for many of us.
It was remarkable how many students de-
veloped phjsical impediments that summer.
The summer program was organized in order
that we, the potential agriculturists, could
boast that we had at least started a tractor.
The more mechanically inclined were allowed
to operate the machinery. Those of us assigned
to the Dairy Department were social outcasts.
The Poultry Department had its short-
comings too. Ask the men who were detailed
to clean and scrape the roosts during those hot
days. Ah, what sweet memories! The horti-
cultural assignees were destined to be either
fruit pickers, vegetable pluckers or wheel-
barrow operators. We could never determine
which was the worst of the three evils. No
matter where we were assgned, the response
always seemed to be that a great injustice had
been done. Regardless of aU the wailing and
lamenting, we all felt that we had benefited by
our exposure to the routine.
To help offset the intensity of the program,
lighter moments were enjoyed by all. We had
our swimming parties and other parties too.
Phone numbers will cheerfully be submitted
by men who were more nocturnal in habit.
W hen the curtain dropped at the close of the
first year, many fast friendships and dynamic
roommate combinations had been formed.
Some of them developed a tint of notoriety
during the years to come.
September 1947 found everyone with com-
pletely refreshed minds but still wondering
how the Amoeba functioned (with all respect
to the Biology Department). .After going
through the ordeal of formulating a schedule
and receiving our forthcoming program, we
sophomores entrenched and readied ourselves
for the bombardment of equations, biological
terms, excerpts from American Literature and
the ever popular details.
None of us lost much time in getting back
into harness, whether it followed academic
studies or social activities. Renewed vigor
was observed in both. New quarters were
dusted and bull-dozed clear of debris. Many
home coming parties were held from the hal-
lowed sanctuaries of the first floor to the in-
famous dens of the third floor. It appeared as
though Mr. Miller would lose weight from the
repeated foot race she was forced to make.
We assure you, it was all in fun Mr. Miller,
and we complunent you for your unflagging
energy in trying to redeem the wayward and
still maintain law and order.
The new Freshman Class had arrived by this
time and what a group! We, the Sophomores,
could have quaUfied as Sunday School teachers
after viewing the exhibitions of the "Mutts."
The initiations failed to subdue the more
hardy of the species and they unflinching-ly
continued to shatter the tranquility of Ulman
Hall. At this writing, they were still quite
The call of the wild began to echo through-
out the campus by now. Grotesque figures
began to emerge, bedecked in the armour of
the gladiator, in this instance, they took the
form of our football squad. Small but mighty,
the team shaped into a comparatively potent
aggregation that went through the campaign
vindefeated although tied once by powerful
The invigorating, colorful weather of the
Fall began to fall victim to the harsh bleak-
ness of old man \vinter. The wandering men
began to draw their social circles tighter. In
general, the entire college group resigned
themselves to academic work. Nothing oc-
curred of mention during this period of hiber-
Examinations were upon us without much
warmng and we seemed to have no tune to
prepare for them. Much midnight oil was
burned but to no avail.
Winter finally gave into spring and again
the harsh voices could be heard on the softball
field with "Lenny's Loons" defeating the
"Marauders" or the "Stanley Steamers." No
one without a sense of humour could have
possibly lasted more than one inning in one of
these contests. Errors were the rule rather than
the exception, and the comments passed back
and forth between players and spectators
would have kept a comedian in gags for years.
Spring, in true fashion, appeared and dis-
appeared with accelerated movement. Final
examinations aroused the Van Winkles and
once more there were sleepless nights and
The big gamble we all took when entering
paid off in May 1948 when the Administration
informed us that the State Board of Education
had approved us as a senior college. It was
indeed cause for celebration and once again
parties were in order throughout the dorm.
The summer schedule for the potential
juniors was set forth by the Administration and
each member of the class had to locate himself
working in his respective field. Many inflated
reports accompanied us on our return in the fall.
Cupid had begun to take his toll for some
old faces were no longer with us. But on
taking another look, we saw various and sun-
dry strange faces in our midst. It wasn't long
before they became an integral part of the
Class of 1950. As juniors we began to wear ties
with our shirts. Up to this point neck ties in
the class were about as common as filet mignon
in the dining hall.
New officers were elected and we were off
on another cruise on the far from placid
academic waters. Bigger and better automo-
biles were being used by what appeared to be a
more prosperous group of underclassmen. With
our football team experiencing success on the
field, the National Agricultural College seemed
to be starting very successfully. Before the
interruption of the Christmas holidays, we
were beseiged by a series of automobile acci-
dents which took Jim Peters and Frank Clancey
from our ranks. Jim is stiU convalescing while
Frank is continuing with the Class of 1951.
Following Christmas, our existence was a
dreary one with most of us living in continual
fear of finals. By some miraculous stroke of
fate, most of us were spared from the guillotine.
The one thought uppermost in our minds at
this time, was the Jimior Prom. The Cedar-
brook Country Club proved to be an ideal
setting for a spring formal and the affair was a
liuge success. Recuperation from the prom
had to be quick in order to prepare for the first
amiual "A" Day which followed shortly. This
first field day was the brain child of the Dairy
Society and it proved to be the outstanding
practical demonstration of our abilities to
The remainder of the semester was usually
spent enduring those long, sleepy walks to
eight o'clock classes, those energy depleting
Softball games and those measured foot races
set to music.
After well wishing, handshakes, and assorted
adieus, we again embarked on a summer tour
over the sea of grass.
That long awaited day finally arrived when
we returned as Seniors. How proud we must
have felt to reahze we had suffered through
three years of bookish imprisonment and lived.
This was the last roimd up and no one enter-
tained thoughts of remaming out in pasture.
So here we were, a conglomeration of thinking
potential, with limitless thinking to do. Little
time was lost in getting organized and back
into the orbit of learning.
The much anticipated football season began
late, but the coaches lost little time in rounding
us into shape for what later proved to be a long,
hard, somewhat disappointing season. Some-
how the team was lacking in the most vital
positions and although we got off to a good
start, the end of the season found us with but
three wins compared to five losses. The foot-
ball season however has its brighter side and
Although the college received little notice
for its gridiron accomplishments we did
manage to hit the headlines in another way.
About thirty members of Junior and Senior
classes made a midnight trip to Glassboro
State Teachers College, where they proceeded
to redecorate their campus with whitewash
and paper streamers. What began as a college
prank ended more spectacidarly. An impul-
sive night watchman called the poUce. After a
short one-sided gun battle about eighteen of
our army were captured. However, no one
was hurt and even the poUcemen seemed to
enjoy themselves after the purpose of our
presence in Glassboro was explained. What
was to be the main event of the evening,
placing several live chickens in the girls dormi-
tory, was foiled. Those not caught spent
several cold hours hichng behind bushes and in
a nearby swamp. After several hours the army-
managed to reorganize in a local diner and
returned to the college.
The event was not without its reprecussions
both favorable and otherwise. Among the most
favorable aspects was a mutual admiration
between the girls of Glassboro and the men of
N.A.C., which up to this time, has been in-
creasing in intensity. The following game with
Glassboro was a hard fought battle that we lost
by a close margin.
The end of the football season brought out
the college band in their new uniforms to high-
light the final game which we won by a safe
margin. Another outstanding fall event was
the Junior Prom at the Broad wood Hotel,
"which many of the Seniors attended. It was an
unusually successful dance attended by an
exceptionally friendly group of about one
hmidred couples all of whom were in high
Other favorable aspects of this last year
have been the fine showings of the Glee Club
and the successful basketball season.
The writing of this history finds us looking
forward to the Senior Ball and graduation
which are only a few months off. On weekends,
many of us can be seen carrying large loads of
belongings home as we are starting to climb
out from underneath the accumulation of four
The end is definitely near.
Unfortxmately, this class history cannot go
further, but at this writing it seems safe to give
a prediction of things to come; we will go on, a
united class, accepting and conquering our
problems in the best fashion. We shall en-
deavor to make the first graduating class of the
National Agricultural College a difficult one

The club has endeavored during these years
to instill and encourage a high rate of interest
among its members. The primary objective of
the club has been to give each member,
whether a poidtrv major or one maintaining
a secondary interest in poultry, a practical

NATIONAL AGGIES, 12
MONTCLAIR STATE TEACHERS, 7
The Aggies, under the direction of their new
coach, Hugo Bezdek, opened their 1949 foothall
campaign on October 1st with a last minute 12-7
victory over Montclair State Teachers.
Freshman Ted Rodriqne opened the scoring
when he raced 65 yards through tackle on the
Aggies first play from scrimmage. Play then
settled down, with Montclair retaining possession
of the ball most of the first half. However, they
were unable to tally till the final minute of the
second quarter when Don Dreher plunged over
for the score. Seconds later. Bill Gray converted
with a dropkick and Montclair led 7-6 as the
teams left the field at half time.
Play in the third quarter was again dominated
by Montclair, but it was in the final stanza that
the Aggies came to life. The winning touchdown '
was scored by Ted Rodrique on a pass play from
Bucky Zajaczkowski which covered 40 yards.
NATIONAL AGGIES, 32; N. Y. AGGIES, 7
In their second encounter, the Aggies ran
roughshod over a confused N. Y. Aggie team by
the score of 32-7. The visituig Aggies drew first
blood when they raced ten yards through the
middle to pay dirt. However, the Bulldogs re-
taliated in quick order as three plays later Mike
Scheier skirted end for 69 yards and a touchdown.
Before the half ended Mike carried the ball on
another long javmt, but was forced out on the
visitors' 4 from where Joe Fulcoly carried it
over. The second half saw play dominated
again by the Bezdek men as Joe Fulcoly scored on
a 10-yard end run. Mike passed about 25 yards to
Pete Kerkhoff for the fourth touchdown and
finally, in the last period, Pete intercepted a pass
and ran unmolested for 60 yards and the score.
NEW HAVEN TEACHERS, 12
New Haven Teachers handed the Aggies their
first defeat of the season on October 15th at
Almnni Field to the tune of 12:0. This game was
marked by New Haven's abihty to capitalize on
the breaks and the inability of the Aggies to
cross the goal line when within striking distance.
The outstanding performers for New Haven were
Griffin and Toplitsky. The mainstays for the
Aggies were Mike Scheier and Joe Fulcoly.
KINGS COLLEGE, 19
NATIONAL AGGLES, 13
An inspired and ever-driving Kings College
handed the Aggies their second straight defeat
19-13. Throughout most of the game the Bezdek
line was unable to stop the relentless Kings'
backs. This difficulty and two costly fumbles
when on the march seemed to be the main factors
in spelling defeat for the Aggies. Mike Scheier ran
around end for 21 yards and a touchdown which
tied the score in the first period shortly after
Kings had driven 65 yards to their initial score.
Early in the third quarter the Aggie line re-
covered a Kings fumble deep in their territory and
capitalized a few plays later when Joe Fulcoly
scored from the 8 on an end run. Mike converted
the extra point on another end run which gave the
Aggies a 13-12 lead. This one point margin
remained till midway through the fourth quarter
when Kings tallied on a long pass for what proved
to be the final scorin".
POTOMAC STATE, 19
The Aggies traveled to Keyser, West Virginia
on October 29th only to lose a thrilling game to
Midway through the first quarter, the Potomac
offense started to click as the) pushed over from
the four. Play continued to be dominated by the
Mountaineers and just prior to the end of the first
period they scored their second touchdown on a
partially blocked pass.
Early in the third period Potomac climaxed
another sustained drive by pushing their third
tally over from the three.
At this point Walt Riggins took over the
quarterbacking position and within six minutes
Mick Scheier had scored twice on runs of nineteen
and thirty-four yards. The game ended in excit-
ing fashion as the Bulldogs were again on the
move but time ran out just as Mick Scheier was
pushed out of bounds by the lone man between
him and the goal line.
GLASSBORO 20; NATIONAL AGGIES, 6
The Glassboro passing attack spelled the fourth
defeat in a row for the Aggies on November 5th
when they travelled to the Teacher's campus for
the rival encounter.
The first period was dominated by the Aggies
but every time they got within scoring position
the Teacher's recovered a fumble. Both of Glass-
boro's touchdowns in the second quarter came as
the residt of Aggie fumbles.
Scoring ceased till midway through the fourth
period when Chuck Raskin blocked a punt and
Dick Clark recovered the ball in the endzonc. for a
touchdown. On the ensuing kickoff the Teachers
fumbled deep in their own territory and as the
Aggies recovered, it looked as though their
offensive power would finally click and pidl the
game out of the fire. However, the Teachers held
the Bezdek gang on downs and took over on their
WILKES, 53; N.A.C., 7
November 12th was a very sad day for N.A.C.
as they were beaten by a more powerful Wilkes
team at Wilkes-Barre, 53-7. Hard running
(Conlinned on page 8j)
The 1949-50 basketball season was a great
success as it was the first winning court team
produced by N. A. C. Much of the credit be-
longs to Coach Tom Miller who had the
ability to mold promising freshmen and sea-
soned veterans into a formidable unit.
While winning ten and losing seven games,
Coach Miller's boys showed signs on many
occasions of being nothing less than terrific,
but at other times they were disappointing.
In spite of their erratic performances, the
Aggies aroused in the students and faculty an
interest and following that was phenomenal.
Many of the away games found as many stu-
dents in attendance as did the home games.
The highlights of the season were the home
and away series with Temple Pharmacy, Phila-
delphia Textile, and our arch rivals, Glassboro
State Teachers. However, the greatest in-
dividual exhibitions witnessed by the Aggies
were the uncanny shooting demonstrations put
on by George Dempsey of Kings College.
Dempsey scored 80 pouits against the Bull-
dof'S in two games which left the team and
their supporters spellbomid.
The Aggies were paced by the prolific scoring
of freshman Phil Sekerchak whose 314 points
along with the 225 of Dick Reeves and the 222
of Jim Varaitis gave the club a terrific offensive
punch. Reeves, playing his last season, had
his most successful year. His ball handhng
and backboard work left little to be desired.
Lou Serridge, the senior flash from Fleminglon,
while lacking in size, was a constant scrapper
who averaged nine points per contest. Bill
Clancey completed the starting quintet by
lendino- it balance with his leadership and ball
This season terminated the college careers of
Chick Ginsburg, Jimie Long, Lou Serridge,
Dick Reeves and Bill Clancey who have done a
fine job during the past four years. The rest of
the squad; Bill Larder, Carl Lynn, Phil Seker-
chak, Jim Varaitis, Ed VanSant, Cal Kidder
and Jim Lipari will form the backbone of what
promises to be a great team next season.

With the arrival of spring a young man's
thoughts rightly turn to the national pastime
which plays an important role on this campus.
Coach Ray Wodcock, with his fatherly
leadership will be back for a second year at the
hehn of what looms as a pretty fair club.
The team is well balanced in spite of the
fact that four otherwise sure starting seniors
will not be available becau.se of practice teach-
ing. However, Coach Ray has "Junie" Long,
Bill Orapchuck, Dick Clark, and Bill Larder
to serve as the nucleus of a winning ball club.
What he lacks in pitching depth and catch-
ing experience, Coach Wodock knows will be
more than evened up by the hustle and fighting
spirit of a team that possesses the will to win.

On November 19th the National Agricultural
College ended its '49 campaign with an impressive
13-7 victory over Lycoming College. Besides
being the last game of the season, it was the last
game for nine seniors.
Lycoming drew first blood in the opening period
when it recovered Rodrique's fumble on the Aggie

third down Bob Manville went through a big
hole for 22 yards and a touchdown.

the one. John Holtzheimer converted the extra

When Grandpa went to school, good yearbook engravings
were truly a luxury; expensive hand methods were neces-
sary to turn out plates that would be considered mediocre
today. But now, the Basil L. Sniilh System, utilizing the
latest in machinery and production methods in its eastern
and mid-western plants, assures you of fine craftsmanship
and personalized service at a price your school can afford.
