I'rofessnr ol Agronomy
Technical and scientific prof!;rcss has l)een so rapid
during the past half century that many fields have felt
its force. Agriculture in the United States has probably
felt the force of progress more than any other single
field. Lammont du Pont once said, "What is funda-
mental research today is applied research tomorrow."
In modern agriculture it may well be said that today
and tomorrow often meet.
Every farmer actively engaged in the production of field crops can be considered
a practical, operating agronomist. Agronomy is that division of agriculture dealing
with the study of environment, in regard to the basic and applied sciences in the
skill of field crop production and soil management. The future welfare of the world's
population is dependent upon an adequate food supply. Agronomy furnishes the
farmer with the necessary information which enables him to produce not only
efficiently and economically but permanently. The study of Agronomy prepares men
to be practical agronomists and in addition offers a foundation for the many other
careers in this field.

Animal Husbandry deals basicall) with the
breeding, feeding, and management of livestock.
Although many graduates in this field are engaged
in the practical phases of purebred and commercial
beef cattle, swine, sheep, and horse production a
great variety of allied fields are also open to the
graduates of this major. These allied fields may be
government work in research, extension services,
marketing, or inspection: in the meat packing or
commercial feed industries: or in the profession
of teaching. Whatever the graduate chooses for his
life's work he is well prepared. He receives his
theoretical background from courses in the basic
sciences and applied animal sciences, while he gains
practical experience from actual work with farm

Associate Professor of
A college graduate in the field of Dairy Hus-
bandry may enter many fields of endeavor related
to this science. Aside from the fields of commer-
cial dairy farming, dairy farm management, breed-
ing purebred dairy cattle, and dairy supervision
he may enter the professions of teaching, adminis-
tration, research, and sales. The Dairy Husbandry
majors at N.A.C. are instructed in the latest com-
mercial practices, as well as the techniques and
theories lying behind them. Practical work is com-
plemented by technical courses and courses in the
varied sciences. It is this varied program that
enables graduates in this field to meet the keen
competition found in the dairy industry today.

Demands the Best Techniques
The Food Industry is devoted to training its
students in the practical and technical aspects of
food processing and preservation. The men may
either major in Dairy Processing or General Foods.
Besides courses dealing with specific foods there
are also manv subjects applicable to the general
realm of chemistry and microbiology which have
been found to be of great value. The methods of
study are such that first the physical and chemical
aspects of a particular food are discussed thor-
oughly, and only then are processing procedures
taught. Stress is placed on laboratory work which
demonstrates the problems in industry on a small
scale, and offers corrective procedures. With such
rapid advance and changes in industrial technology
and equipment, frequent field trips to modern food
factories have been found to be very helpful.

The OrnaiiuMilal Hditiculture field offers a vast
horizon to its majors. Graduates are capable of
ohtaiiiiiif; siieh positions as greenhouse and nursery
managers, landscape nurserymen, and landscape
architects: besides positions in the flora divisions
of the field. In addition to the preceding oppor-
tunities one can also gain a good knowledge of the
subjects of cytology, morphology, pathology, physi-
ology, and taxonomy. On our twenty-seven acres of
campus the principles of this field may be amply
seen and practiced. We become capable of observ-
ing the processes .going on within the flora before
us each day. and the correlation between the plant
sciences and landscaping is very close. In order to
landscape properly one must have a wide knowledge
of plant material — their characteristics of growth.
Our training enables us to work for graduate de-
grees or to begin our own business.

Freeman S. Jacoby
Associate Professor of
Poultry Husbandry is a science of huge dimen-
sions. A major in this field must study not only
different fowls, breeds and varieties in a given
fowl, eggs and egg production, but. must also be
well versed in the basic sciences. A graduate may
engage in research or management work related to
egg and poultry production in regard to quality
production and the economics of production. Prac-
tical work and numerous field trips to modern
poultry processing plants in conjunction with class-
room and laboratory work are essentials necessary
to gain a full understanding of this field.

A teacher ajjecis eternity : lie can never tell
ivhere his influence stops. H. B. ADAMS
No one should sjiecialize to the point where he
knows nothing other than his own field. Over-
specialization is one of the gerat dangers facing
students and educators today. A well rounded
individual must have some knowledge of a variety
of subjects. These subjects are classified as the
Liberal Arts and Humanities. Courses falling into
this classification are designed to enlarge the hori-
zons of a student and adjust his perspective as
well as train him in "free thinking." Among the
Liberal Arts and Humanities offered at N.A.C.
are English, economics, political science, logic,
mathematics, art. music, philosophy, psychology,
and foreign affairs. It is through these studies
that our personalities are molded; to shape the
adult we become.

After completing two years of business administra-
tion at the City College of New York, "Bud" trans-
ferred to N.A.C. His business-like manner has been
exemplified in the outstanding management of the
dining hall during his two years of service as head
waiter. In his senior year the class elected him treas-
urer. Bud showed his ability in his chosen field last
year as a member of the colleges' Horticultural
Judging team in the Eastern States Intercollegiate
Judging Contest. He has been a member of class
intramural baseball, basketball, and football teams.
Bud also found time to serve on the yearbook staff
and was an active member of the Horticulture and
Contemporary Clubs. His ultimate goal is to be an
orchardman and his combination of business and
agricultural knowledge should be the key to his
If we want the world to live in tranquility
"Bronk" is the man behind the scene who is out-
standing whenever a job has to be done. He is one
of the most active members of our class. He has
actively participated in A-Day and was its treasurer
for the past two years; as well as being vice president
of the class. The Glee Club, Varsity Club, and the
GLEANER also took his interest. In his senior year
he was chosen as one of the co-editors of the year-
book. We will always remember him as being on
the ball in all of the activities in which he partici-
pated. We'll never forget our intramural teams with
Bronk as one of the regulars. With a background
such as this he can be nothing but a success in his
career and any other task he may undertake.

Sincere, honest, and conscientious are most de-
scriptive of Alan's character. Since he set foot on
campus he has been recognized by his friendly smile,
and friendly gab. Alan's favorite hobby is working
with dogs and following the dog shows and clubs in
the vicinity of his home. An active participant in the
activities of the Horticulture Club and A-Day, Alan
also supported his class and nearly all of the school's
social activities. His ambition and earnest desire for
success are sure to carry him far in his chosen field.
As for the future he hopes to continue working in
the field of Horticulture in a business of his own.

RONALD LEROY STAMMEL
Ronald is better known to his classmates as "Ron-
nie." In his four years here he has been more active
in student activities and sports than anyone else in
tlie class. In his sophomore year Ronnie was elected
"Back of the Year" for his great work on the grid-
iron. He also served as co-captain of the baseball
team and co-captain of the football team in his
junior year. Ronnie is the first student to graduate
from N.A.C. with twelve varsity letters. In student
activities he has been an active member of several
clubs; serving as president of the Varsity Club, presi-
dent of the Student Council, and president of the
class of '56. He has always been an active partici-
pant in the animal shows on A-Day. After graduation

JUAN M. UMANA
Calle 76 No. 4-76
Known to all of us on campus as "South America's
answer to the student prince," Juan ranks as one
of the best liked students at N.A.C. Although he gives
the impression of an easy going, never worrying
fellow, Juan is actually a top-notch student bent on
knowing (he answers to any problems that may arise
in agriculture. His love for sports prompted him to
organize the soccer team, on which he excelled as a
forward. As Juan has gained the respect and friend-
ship of us all by his keen sense of humor and a
facility for getting along in a strange country, so
will he accomplish his goal through an unending
will to defeat the problems at hand by work and

Carrera 42 No. 49-68
One of the best liked students on campus (where
he is better known as "Uribity" ) is the perfect de-
scription for Alberto. He has been an active member
of the Animal Husbandry Club for the past four
years; and while participating in Art many of his
works were displayed in the annual A-Day Art ex-
hibition. Alberto also played on the soccer team as
a center. Alberto's greatest interests beyond the scho-
lastic field are flying airplanes and motorcycle rac-
ing. In the past he was often seen coming through
the main gates on a cold morning, calmly sitting on
his little red motorcycle. His ambition is to manage
Uribe Enterprises in South America, and to do this,
he will take back to his country many of the new
and modern techniques he has learned at N.A.C.

Roy will long be remembered for his outstanding
work as president of the Dairy Club and for his out-
standing contributions to the success of A-Day. He
has also been an active member of the Poultry Club,
Glee Club, and the Varsity Club. Roy spent his last
three years at N.A.C. living off-campus, and com-
muted from his farm in Collegeville to school every
day. He enjoys farming and definitely intends to
make a career out of it. We, of the senior class, feel
sure that his natural ability to farm and his many
unmeasured characteristics and abilities will make
him a success in this, his chosen field.

Sewell R. F. D.
Turnersville, New Jersey
Irv, widely known as the "Turnersville Terror," is
strictly a turkey man from way back. While major-
ing in Poultry Husbandry throughout college Irv
found the time to participate in quite a few extra-
curricular activities; among which were the Glee
Club and the Poultry Club. Irv is never at a loss
for words, and is well known all over campus for
his gift of gab. He also is well known for his
chocolate sundaes. One of Irv's plans for the future
is definitely the turkey business. The other, a beauti-
ful wife, has already been taken care of.
HARRY B. WEBER
R. D. No. 1
Harry's activities were both many and varied. He
served the class as president during our freshman
year; he was an active member of the Dairy Club,
Student Council, and Varsity Club. For several years
now, Harry has divided his time between scholastic
work and managing Dr. Lee's Guernsey Farm. After
graduation, Harry intends to remain at Dr. Lee's
farm. He has two "firsts" to his credit. Harry was
the first member of the class to become a father.
His greater maturity and keen sense of values are
sure to stand him in good stead in later life.

There are few people in whose constitution fun-
loving and seriousness are so well combined. Art,
who is always regarded as "one of the boys," has
shown his serious side often. He has been an active
member in the Animal Husbandry Club, Dairy Club,
and has been the business manager of the GLEANER.
Art's major is Animal Husbandry and his interest
in. and love for animals is unbounding. His efforts
to learn as much of the practical side of his chosen
field as possible, has led him to travel over a great
deal of the country. His hard work, perseverance,
and business instinct will undoubtedly lead him to
success in the future, as it has done here at N.A.C.
HENRY E. WIRTH
126 Callender Street
"Heinz," as he is known to his fellow classmen,
joined our ranks in the spring semester of 1953. A
vital contribution made bv him to the class was
giving it that "continental" touch. He was an active
member of the Food Industry Club. Glee Club, and
Contemporary Club during his four year stay at
N.A.C. An avid fan of the "Chrysler products" and
a humorist at heart best describes his everyday char-
acter. In his senior year "Heinz" tied a major colle-
giate (N.A.C.) record by carrying an academic load
of twenty-six credits. Upon graduation "Heinz" hopes
to contribute to the progress of his chosen field by
employing the latest technical methods he has learned

EDWIN L. WORSTALL, JR.
As a member of the N.A.C. Poultry Club, "Ned"
has aided the club as well as the College immensely.
His talents in the field of poultry science earned him
a top position on the poultry judging team. Ned was
also a member of the Glee Club, and football team;
and was one of the best all-around guards the Col-
lege ever had. Ned was formerly a student at the
Drexel Institute of Technology in Philadelpia, but
found agriculture more to his liking. Ned's quick
wit and sincere personality, combined with his driv-
ing ambition, will certainly carry him far in his
life's work, regardless of what it may be.
GLEN G. WRIGLEY
R. D. No. 1
"The Rig." hails from the suhurbs of Perkasie
Pennsylvania. He is an exceptionally likeable fellow
and has clone much for the class in the way of sport;
and education. His sports-mindedness led him to par
ticipate in varsity football as well as intramural has
ketball and baseball. "Rig" is seen at just about every
social function, both on and off campus. He was an
outstanding member of the Dairy Club and spent
four years in the Glee Club. "Rig" is also noted for
the familiar expression "are you kiddin' me?" A
combination of the many facets that go to make up
his personality are seldom found in one person. We
feel sure that this combination will prove unbeatable.

"Your name, please?"
"Class of 1956."
The man looked stern and happy as the horde of
young, inquisitive men signed the register. This
was the beginning of four fabulous and memorable
years in the annals of the National Agricultural
The class of '56 assembled on campus that
September day in 1952 — a group of noisy young
men; some shy, some forward, all secretly study-
ing the expressions and actions of the others in an
effort to gain their bearing in this new world.
Those early days were hectic — making friends,
meeting roommates, and for some getting over that
"lonesome feeling." During the first week meeting
the faculty, taking tours of the campus, and being
subjected to tests I Oh, those tests!) headed the
orientation agenda. By the end of test week every-
one was thoroughly confused and ready to run
home — which was exactlv what they did!
However Monday morning dawned and everyone
had come back for more. By this time, the upper-
classmen had returned to the campus and the stage
was set for classes to begin. But then there were
more faces to study, especially the class of '55.
We had learned, via "the grape vine," the terrors
the sophomores had planned for that extra-curricu-
lar activity known as "freshman hazing." We soon
learned that we were to be blessed with another
duty, namely, waiting on tables. What a sloppy
mess that turned out to be!
From the ranks we chose Harry Weber as our
first leader, and not too long after his inaugura-
tion he presented us with the rules of hazing with
which we immediately complied — signs, dinks,
wearing ties to meals, and using that famous pas-
sageway to the east, for which Columbus was once
searching — "ginko lane."
As our minds filled with the fear of what was
in store for us on that "night" we were always
relieved and inspired by the sounds that came from
the corner room, "Let's organize!" But the "night"
finally came, cold and dark, and we were led like
lambs to the slaughter. The cows were awake, the
"pile" was high, and the pool was deep and slimy.
Yes, our punishment for being freshmen was to
clean the dairy by hand. Those ornery cows just
would not hit the shovels we held for them! Then,
one by one. the "wise men" were called to the
summit to answer for their crimes; what a mess!
"The organizer" said a mouthful! and he paid for
it by swallowing a mouth full. Two gladiators per-
formed for the crowd, trying desperately to sink
each others ship.
When the first light of day appeared in the east
the dairy was spic and span and weary freshmen
plodded back to the dorm. The encounter at the
dairy humbled our pride until our day for revenge
came. Eyeing our opponents fiercely from our side
of the pond we stood taut and ready, manning
our end of the rope. Having been briefed in this art
previous to the "big pull" by that wise old pugilist,
we were confident that victory was within our
grasp. What a rewarding sight those sophomores
were as they dripped back to the dorm, and how
wonderful it felt to no longer squash the ginkos
under our footsteps.
Time passed, and exams were upon us. Most of
us weathered the storm and sailed on to the calmer
water of the second semester. With one semester
down and seven to go we felt like veterans and
took to our tasks of murdering chickens and giving
haircuts to peach trees.
In Spring a young man's fancies turn from
thoughts of school — a party was in the air. This
shindig turned out to be a tremendous social suc-
cess but a dismal administrative failure. At this
time we received the delightful news that we would
spend our summer at N.A.C. Groans and gripes
filled the air but after we helped produce a great
A-Day show (in which the class took many prizes),
completed our exams, and watched the seniors grad-
uate, we resigned ourselves to the task of learning
Fun was had by all that summer.
Thinned peaches found their mark on another
"Peaches." Early in the morning, the chickens were
fed by tired poultrymen. Horse stories flew thick
and thin; apprentice blacksmiths and construction
crews built equipment and tools of tomorrow; and
breakage fees ran high ! Near the end of the sum-
mer we assumed a more serious attitude and chose
our majors. At long last our summer vacation began
and we were mighty glad to depart for home.
But we had just gotten settled at home when Sep-
tember rolled around again. No, the place hadn't
changed much but the situation was the opposite
of last year's. We were sophomores now and our
minds were busy dreaming up tortures which we
could apply to the freshmen.
After we had registered as sophomores, we
realized that a few of our members hadn't returned.
But our spirit was still there. We surveyed the
incoming class of freshmen and found that they
greatly outnumbered us, so we had to show our
strength by enforcing stricter regulations; such as
exact dimensions of signs and the wearing of dinks
at all times. When the night came for giving the
freshmen a rough workout, a couple of the boys
decided to give spice to the occasion by setting off
fire crackers. The result of this display was not
beneficial to our class.
Acceptance of the freshman challenge found us
assembled at the pond, dressed in white shirts,
ready to uphold our previous record. The twenty
strong men that faced us looked mighty but were
obviously green in the art of rope pulling. After
an exhausting stalemate, our superior skill and
spirit brought them crashing through the mud to-
ward our stronghold. Our class holds the distinction
of being the first in the history of the college to
win both years. Also, our victory extended freshman
hazing for another two weeks.
Everyone will remember the extravagant Snow-
ball Dance at which a beautiful campus queen was
elected. No one can forget the hard work and spirit
of cooperation that went into making this dance
a huge success.
At the end of the summer of '54 we were at the
stage of life where we were mature men who had
gone through many battles and could face the
everyday problems of the next two years. We were
more serious in our thinking, and in some ways
drifting away from the underclassmen, to think of
the future years ahead of us.' This year was rela-
tively a sober one compared to the previous years.
One of the many interests taken up by our class
was the chess tournament which took place in Elson
Hall. During this period we also arganized "De-
Sousa's Boys" and rapidly they gained a reputation
throughout the school.
Ahoul the middle of ihal >c;ir we ordered our elass
rings, wliieli will always remind lis of the good
times we had at N.A.C. When the haskethall season
came around there was a little flare-up created by
the misunderstanding of our student activities card
which resulted in a pi-tition. This pelition exploded,
which left eighty students skating on thin ice. The
Student Council managed to freeze the whole mat-
ter. When the peaches were in full bloom, the sen-
iors were bid fare .veil 1)\ their succe-ssors. Who got
their feet wet that night? The following week was
consumed by final exams and then finallv off to
the fields of work for the summer. During this time
everyone's mind was on the final year and gradua-
tion, which had been our optimistic goal.
Anxiously awaiting our return to N.A.C. for our
big, final year we were disappointed by two won-
derful letters which told us our vacation had been
extended. When we finally did return we were
fascinated by the beautiful new dorm which we saw
awaiting us. But. brother, when we got inside 1 We
shoveled our way through sawdust, climbed over
two by fours, and those poor boys who slept late
were rudely awakened every morning to the tune
of hammers and saws. We suffered through it all
and it was certainly worth it. We graduated from
hammocks to real beds.
The class finally got around to taking over the
campus. Club presidents started club activities in
motion, yearbook work got under way. and the
Student Council began the tough job of executing
the campus law.
"DeSousa's Boys" rolled through the intranmral
football league tieing the "Cruds" for first place
and topping the league by the toss of a coin. Darts
and TV became the newest fads for the boys and
everyone had a great time at the third all-college
weekend. The Sweetheart Dance was the climax
of the social endeavors of the seniors and a good
time was had by all.
As our history goes to press the Class of '56 is
looking forward to a successful Prom and a com-
plete roster at Graduation exercises. When the Class
of '56 steps out into the world we will know that
with the background we possess we are certain
to achieve success in every challenge we may meet.
"Hats off" to the underclassmen; for without their
constant push, keeping us on our toes, we would
have surely fallen by the wayside.

Every member of the Class of '56 has contributed in one way
or another to the success of this yearbook; as have certain under-
classmen. The task of producing a yearbook is by no means a
small one and a combination of many people, possessing various
skills is essential. However, our job has been a gratifying one and
the success of our yearbook is a reward well worth the work. We
of the CORNUCOPIA staff would like to express our appreciation
to Gil Finkel and Howard Destler, two of the underclassmen whose
help has been invaluable.

In September forty candidates turned out for
football, hopeful of another successful campaign.
The squad had fourteen lettermen returning, but
suffered a severe setback with the loss of Co-
Captain Wilber Miller, who had to drop out of
school for personal reasons. The first gaine was
played at Kutztown State Teachers College in a
pouring rain. The Teachers got three quick TD's
in the first half. In the second half the Aggies
made a comeback which fell short as they lost 21
to 13. The next week the team traveled to Mont-
clair State Teachers College, only to lose another
close one 7 to 6 in another rainstorm. Oti the
road for the third week the Aggies got their first
win at the expense of Brooklyn College, which
dropped football from its athletic activities as
they were handed their twenty-ninth straight loss.
Finally at home the team played its fourth straight
game in the rain, this time against Susquehanna
University. The homecoming crowd was treated to
a 32 to victory on three long TD runs by Ron
Stainmel. Back on the road again the Aggies ab-
sorbed their third defeat at the hands of Millers-
ville State Teachers College, 21 to 7. The Aggies
picked up their third win with a 20 to victory
over Wilson College on Alumni Field. With the
squad really hitting its stride thev rolled over
Gallaudet College by another 20 to score. Co-
Captain Willis Thompson led the way to victory in
the final game over Long Island Aggies. 33 to 0.
This game featured the senior backfield of five
seniors: Fenyves, Bonowski. Richardson, Stammel.
and Wrigley who played their final game for N.A.'C.

The 1955-56 season found the Aggies
playing the toughest schedule that they
had ever encountered. However, the en-
tire team returned to action from the
previous year, in which they compiled
a nine won and seven lost record. Lead-
ing the scoring for the second straight
year was Dick Prins, whose two year
total reached 7.S() points. Captain Char-
lie Indek and Ronnie Stammel are the
only two members of the squad to be
lost through graduation.

In tlie latter part cil' \lar(li pcoiili- in tht- northern
part of the linited States look forward to the com-
ing of spring. To the students cd' the National
Agricultural College this time (d the year has a
much greater significance — A-Day. To them it
means that the months of planning are now coming
to realization and that the work is just about to
begin in earnest. A visitor at the college would
find students patiently working with animals they
are going to show on A-I)ay: other students would
be found working on their designs for a garden
retreat or naturalistic scene, and as the first Sat-
urday in May draws closer you would find the
clubs making their last minute changes and prep-
arations for A-I)av. Then comes the climax every-
one has worked for — A-Day is here. Friends, rela-
tives, and visitors from the surrounding states,
along with the judges come here to make their
critical inspection and comparison of each stu-
dent's exhibit. The Grand Champion awards are
given by the judges to those students who have
excelled in their particular field. Although every
student does not receive an award he feels that
none of his efforts were wasted, because he has
gained many things by working with this big team
of men who in the future will be the core of agri-
culture in the Lhiited States.

But since we've been here, new horizons
And what we knew wasn't half as great as
In our four years of college
We've tasted, of the Tree of Knowledge,
And were driven out of the Eden of our
To the world of cold hard fact.
And now as we leave we must learn how to
And use our knowledge to act.
And use each fact as a tool.
And use each tool the best we can
