^HE Class of 1Q17 offers tKis, tkeir INDEX, to 
all -pSKo maj) be interested. We Kope tkat the 
"interested" may include alumni, undergraduates, 
M. A. C. men-to-be, and friends. It is onl>) 
the dutj) of the Class to prepare and publish this 
work as an epitome of the past year and as a 
bond which shall help to connect our lives in years to come 
Vith the memories of the dajls that have gone. But there is 
a greater and more important mission that we feel should be 
accomplished — ^the establishment of some tangible povJer -o^hich 
will serve to instill into the spirits of Aggie men that fore- 
runner of fello'A'ship — Friendship. 

With this view in mind, we respectfully submit our IrJDEX.

HE subject of this sketch was bom near Kaufman, Texas. He hved 
on a farm until twenty years of age, attended the public schools, 
entered a small college — Trinity University — and received from it 
the degree of A. B., taking highest honors. He then entered the 
University of Texas, intending to specialize in biology but devoted 
the major part of his time to botany and chemistry. During his course at that 
institution he made Phi Beta Kappa, and in 1903, received the degree of B. Sc. 
The two following years he was a fellow in botany and chemistry and received the 
degree of M. Sc. During the year 1905-6 he taught chemistry and physics in the 
Corsicana high school. As early as 1901 he began taking courses at the University 
of Chicago during its summer quarter, and he continued this work until he entered 
the University as a graduate student and fellow in the auttmm of 1906. In the 
spring of 1907 he was made associate in chemistry and in 1909 received the degree 
of Doctor of Philosophy magna cum laude, the subject of his thesis being, "The 
Action of Fehling's Solution on Galactose." 

While a graduate student at Chicago he pursued his studies in physical 
chemistry with Professors McCoy and Stieglitz, and in quantitative analysis and 
organic chemistry with Professors Stieglitz and Nef. In the spring of 1909 he 
passed the United States Civil Service examination and was offered and declined 
a position in the Bureau of Standards. He was also elected to membership in 
the Sigma Xi fraternity. 

After receiving his doctor's degree he became special research assistant to 
Professor Nef, the head of the department of chemistry and continued in this 
position until his call to M. A. C. He was offered the position of instructor in 
chemistry in case he decided to remain at the University. In addition to his doc- 
tor's thesis, he published, while at Chicago, two scientific papers entitled, "The 
Relation between Configuration and Rotation of the Lactones in the Sugar and 
Saccharinic Acid Groups," and "An Empirical Relation between the Configuration 
and Rotation of Sugars." 

In the summer of 1912, Dr. Anderson was called to M. A. C. as assistant pro- 
fessor of general and physical chemistry and in 1914 he was made associate pro- 
fessor. During his three years of residence he has received a call to an instructor- 
ship in organic chemistry at Harvard University, and another call to become 
head of the scientific division of the Margaret Morrison School of Science at the 
Carnegie Institute at Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. Only recently he was approached 
by the president and dean of the University of Utah with a view to securing him 
as head of the chemical department of that institution. 


Professor Anderson has published several scientific papers while at M. A. C. 
and three men — Messrs. Noyes, Bogue and Brown — have made the degree of 
Master of Science under his direction. 

Since coming to Amherst, he has co-operated with Professor Peters in reor- 
ganizing the work in freshman chemistry. He has also enlarged and strengthened 
the course in qualitative analysis so that it is now considered fully equal to that 
given in any college. A course in physical chemistry has been introduced by him 
and is required of all men majoring in chemistry. 

Professor Anderson is an excellent teacher and full of energy and enthusiasm 
for his subject. He inspires and leads rather than commands the student. He 
is cordial in his relations with both faculty and students; the latter regard him 
as their friend and advisor as well as their superior. While he is always ready to 
help any one to a better understanding of his subject, he has little patience with 
the drone. 

He seems to care little for formal social functions; the atmosphere of the 
libran' and laboratory is evidently preferred to that of the drawing-room. Even 
administrative duties and committee meetings seem irksome and as so much time 
lost from more important work. While somewhat reserved and not inclined to 
take the first step in making acquaintances, the ice once broken, one finds be- 
neath the apparent shyness the true democratic spirit. 

Professor Anderson is not only a teacher but he possesses also the true spirit 
of research which is bound to prove decidedly helpful to the department of chem- 
istry and to the entire institution. His mind is ever busy with some problem 
requiring solution, and he communicates this spirit to his associates and students. 
Professor Nef of Chicago, in his letter of recommendation, said of him, "He is 
a young man of tremendous capacity for work and is brimful of enthusiasm for 
research." ' ' I can, therefore, recommend him to you as a very, very unusual and 
exceptionally well qualified teacher and research man". Let us hope that he 
can be retained at M. A. C.

ERE we are once more" — so sayeth the circus man. Since arriving 
on the Mass. Aggie circus grounds, we have spent two years visit- 
ing the side-shows, fakirs, and scholastic prestidigitators. 

We have seen isometric carbon atoms turn handsprings, and the 
halogen family maintaining its chemical equilibrium in an atmosphere 
of ozone. We were next regaled by a fictitious demonstration of the value of 
trained specimens of lumbrims terrestris in agriculture, a feature that might have 
been established, but for the fact that nearby the Czar was impaling one of said 
animals on his famous fishing tackle, of which sophs were even eager to swallow 
"hook, bob, and sinker." Our visit to the side-shows was concluded after hsten- 
ing to 7500 reasons wh}^ there should be another Democrat in Congress. 

Wearying of the minor attractions, we were eager to enter the main tent of our 
Senior and Junior years. Various "major" attractions caused us to separate, 
but we all gradually clustered about the main ring where a Prom was being held, 
a function at which the fairest was none too good for the fair. In another ring, 
a number of clowns were in an historic pageant, commemorating the spirited cus- 
tom of tree planting. The president acted as master of ceremonies, creating an 
enthusiasm in which all joined. It would be against "sound farm practice" and 
the principles of agriculture if the tree did not thrive after such an inauguration. 

Everybody up now for the grand finale. Knowing that we must move on, 
we mingle pleasure with regret — pleasure in the knowledge that we are to jump 
out into life with a definite purpose, and regret because to say good-bye to the 
scenes and associations we have loved is no easy matter. So as we pass out of 
the college circle, and though we may become widely separated, may we still re- 
tain the common tie which binds us to Old Aggie, whose name is dear to us all. 
And when the good call is sent out, may 1916 be sure to "Be There."

|HE Class of Nineteen Seventeen had the distinction of having the 
largest class to enter M. A. C. up to the fall of 1913, there having 
been two hundred and two members when we were freshmen. 

Sixteen was on her job from the start, and most of us remem- 
ber "Woe is me — I am a poor freshman". Has anyone forgotten 
our efforts to get a picture? Of course we got "stung" at the rope pull practice, 
and we marched down town to the tune of "How Green I Am", as all good fresh- 
men had done before us. 

Some of our members did entertain at pond parties, but Sixteen did not have 
the satisfaction of pulling us thru the pond, though they did get three feet of 

The sophs must have underestimated our ability and class spirit, when Pickard 
won for '17 the privilege of smoking on the campus. Was there a single '17 man 
that did not smoke? If so, I do not know him. 

We rather "slipped it over" on '16 again when we chose our officers, and 
we kept them "a-guessing" throughout the banquet season. It was due to the 
utmost vigilance on the part of each member of their class, that they won from 
us the decision, biit in so far as the rivalry brought the members of our class to a 
better understanding of each other and instilled a determination to "stick" to- 
gether, it was a decided benefit. 

Our plans for the discipline of 1918, were radically modified, but by watch- 
fulness, we did succeed in treating some members of that class to a bath. We 
also found out how well sixty of them could swim on the first Friday afternoon of 
the college year! None of the usual customs were omitted, and we prevented 
1918 from smoking on the campus until late in the year. 

When it came to the freshman banquet, 1918 certainly did know their rules, 
and they made use of every advantage given them. 

1917 has not been backward in supplying men for the various student activi- 
ties. We had three men play at some time during the varsity football season of 
1914. We have had men on the track team, and on the rifle team. The class has 
among its members, more than one orator and debator, and many of our men are 
active in the Dramatic Club. When you speak of hockey, we are there again, 
and some of our men have played varsity baseball. In inter-class events, we have 
seldom come out last, and whether we are winning or losing, you will find we have 
the odd-class spirit.

This man must have been born under a lucky 
star all right, for even the combined efforts of Billy 
and Doc Gordon couldn't drive him from our 
midst. "Babby" has learned the fine art of getting 
the maximum of credit for the minimum of work. 
Worry was left out when he was made and it is safe 
to say that he will always be happy as long as the 
supply of Prince Albert holds out. His chief de- 
light in the future will be as he says, "To render 
service to humanity by systematic investigation of 
the living conditions of the more dangerous bac-

He's an optomistic, pessimistic, disbelieving be- 
liever, and as such his real attitude is hard to make 
out. The only things definitely known about him 
are that after scraping putty for four hours in the 
hot sun on top of the plant house one afternoon he 
announced that the course was really practical and 
not all theory, and secondly, that he has a strong 
yearning for the gay life of Boston. As a class em- 
bassy, Bert is 100% perfect having at one time 
succeeded in seducing 50 pair of "bracelets" from 
the guardianship of Boston's law enforcers. What 
inducements he offered we don't know but the 
"cuffs" made some collection.

As night telegraph operator in Hamp. or Am- 
herst, Os makes a noise like Marconi in disguise 
and in such a capacity he has travelled over much 
of the known (and some of the unknown) world. 
When in a reminiscent mood he likes to reflect on 
that song "There's a Girl in Savanah, etc." If you 
don't recognize him any other way you can always 
tell him when you hear the call "Hey Bert, roll me 
a cigarette."

Just see how one can thrive on "Prunes, Toast, 
and Beef". Day after day, Alfred has been known 
to give up the choice viands of the "Hash House" 
for this simple training diet. And he has beautiful 
legs. We know, because his running pants are 
awfully short. Alfred's favorite amusement when 
training, is to run out for a late-afternoon-gallop 
before the admiring gaze of Informal guests.

Dick's ever-evident smile and his never-failing 
loyalty to Seventeen have combined effectively to 
make him one of the most popular fellows in the 
class. His most notable performances have been 
in connection with discus-hurling, in which art he 
now holds the college record. The only time Dick 
worries is when the Springfield mail is delayed, for 
that is where his interest lies when it is not on col- 
lege affairs.

Question for the Sphinx: What will Bobby be 
doing next? At football he is a shining light, at 
baseball he is the same, and in between he takes 
up any spare time with boxing, having mastered all 
the fine points in his "younger days". As a leader 
of a "rough neck squad" he made his reputation last 
banquet season and claims to be able to uphold it. 
His latest acquisition is a 30-footer on which he 
spends his vacations out on the "rolling deep" fish- 
ing, gunning and attempting to make some money, 
and succeeding in keeping in trim for athletics.

Grafton — that is where he' comes from, and there 
certainly was some graft on when he grew up so 
small. Though so small and quiet, nevertheless 
when he goes "over the river" to a bacon bat, he 

drops the meek expression and then — oh my . 

At any rate, he can find the peaches — he was raised 
on them. One of the sights of the campus is to see 
"Wes" riding his sword around the parade ground 
while showing the freshmen the art of preparedness.

Middletown, N. Y. If you do not know, ask Al 
and he will put it on your map for you. No, dear

This name should begin with an "n" and contain 
a "z". When the "B. & M." whistled at Pansy 
Park that fair afternoon in September of 1913, we 
began to hear Prescott, and our ears have been 
ringing with his noise ever since. However, he is 
harmless, and we are waiting with interest to see 
what he will do these two years when there are no 
sophs to bluff, nor freshies to bull-doze.

This, my friends, is the young gentleman of 
whom, were it not for his face and feet, it could 
not be told whether he was coming or going. This 
happens to be very beneficial in his case, however, 
as Dave is the official guardian of our net and op-

fai't that he has a habit of always being in the way. 
His accomplishments are notalale as he has been 
known to make faces through a cornet and has 
even draped himself over the Hop Committee. 
Although hampered by the fact that he comes from 
Arlington, Dave at times exhibits streaks of rare 
intelligence as Dr. Cance will testify.

the course a graft — much to the envy and anger of

calm and peaceful bearing among us for the last

when Walter informed him that the recruits were

In the fall of 1914, he gained undying glory for him- 
self by taking first prize in the first and only rapid- 
fire expectoration contest ever held in the Connecti-

veloped and Providence, R. I., Worcester, Spring- 
field, and Cambridge saw more or less (mostly less 
of him) until he finally furled his sails and cast 
anchor out Pelham Road. As a special, while 1917 
were freshmen, he fooled the faculty and landed 
safe with the other good '17 men in our SophnnKirc 
year, the intricacies of that unfathomable course 
called English 2, being the only stumbling blocks 
in his otherwise smooth and faultless career. Dur- 
ing his leisure hours, he may be found at the corner 
drug store handing out everything from free matches 
to Indexes. Call him "Ed.", "King", or "Kels." he 
answers to them all, and "satisfaction guaranteed or 
money refunded".

That heavy lower jaw certainly points to over- 
grown and over-worked vocal chords. When 
"Link" first appeared in Amherst, "Hank" im- 
mediately recognized the advent of a bitter rival. 
As time rolled on, he resigned himself to his fate, 
knowing there was a Worthy One to leave behind 
him to carry on the work. "Link" spends a great 
deal of time speaking in public (he says he is good 
at it), and when he is not, he may be found, like 
Demosthenes on the sea-shore, addressing the help- 
less plants in the plant-house.

say, that it is no worse than Mt. Holyoke. At

such external stimuli as the fairer sex to which he 
is at times very partial. It is not known whether 
his familiarity with the mills of Lawrence had any-

It is doubtful if "Nails" ever looked at a dough-

whether this pessimism is natural or comes from 
long association with the hard characters whose

be, he has redeemed himself with his camera, for a 
more persistent snapshotter the college never saw. 
One glance through his photo collection tells the 
whole story of the ups and downs of 1917. That 
name "Nails" is supposed to convey the impression 
of "hard guy" or some similar title of approbation. 
It must have originated with some one who knew

There is a rumor about that he has political aspira-

with the rest of us, but soon budded out and showed 
that he, too, was a man of the world. This flaxen 
haired young man has always been a deep thinker 
from the start and he has plenty of serious "dope" 
on all kinds of questions. He has a natural apti- 
tude for art but has decided to blushingly bluff his 
way through Journalism which he has chosen for his 
life work. Go to it, Al, but be careful not to lose 
your dignity.

This noisy young man slips back and forth so un- 
obtrusively that we did not know he was here until 
last June, when he, as silently as the Arab, etc., 
came forth, not departed, and classified some of 
the heavy thinkers' herbariums for SOo per. Thej' 
always did say that still waters run deep. One of 
his greatest sports is to play detective, at which he 
is adept. The only disguise he uses is a pair of 
thick "specs", and they are not shell-rimmed either.

This young man with the Sullivan-rubber-heels 
stride hails from Arlington along with "Bud" and 
"Dave" but he can't help it. Did you ever hear 
him laugh? Well if j^ou ever hear an explosion 
around South dorm followed by a gatling gun rattle, 
you may know that it is Albert laughing. His only 
vices are tooth picks and chewing gum which come 
very naturally to him as he spends his summers 
guarding the wine closet of the B. & M. He is a 
bear with the women, too, as he uses his spare time 
sailing majestically over the mountain or escorting 
the "Smith Special" on its homeward way.

"Ole Eaglebeak" is our idea of a long drink of 
water. When he is not carrying a little green bag 
around the campus, he is swinging a hockey stick 
on the pond and wondering why they do not clean 
off the ice so he can show his speed. Remember the 
time when the ice could not keep up with him, and 
Harold fell through? He carries all his inside dope 
in the green bag — we have in mind the time when 
he ran all the way to Flint to tell about the "ninety- 
five freshmen at the C. V. Station". He could 
not trust that to the 'phone. And we could not 
trust him.

Here we have a noble youth who came to us from 
Harvard, and although we still hear occasionally 
about what used to happen when "I was at Hah- 
vud", Bill has entered fully into the Aggie spirit, as 
well as the Mt. Holyoke spirit, for which place his 
"wife" says he has a hearty admiration. He has 
prospered and thrived amid his new surroundings 
to such an extent that he has become the leader of 
his class in both music and tennis.

A;j a life member of the Farm House Academy, 
the only son of a minister, and a product of Cape 
Cod, Sam's reputation and character is already 
made for him. After resting from Sept. to June 
(especially in Zoo. and Agri. Ec.) he works hard all 
the rest of the year mixing sodas and dishing out 
ice cream and then comes back here to recuperate. 
A little of his latent athletic ability showed itself in 
our hockey game with the freshmen which we won 
in spite of him. For further exercise he keeps a 
boy's club in order (?) in North Amherst and this is 
quite enough training for him.

This tiny bit of sunshine dropped in among us 
along with the rest of the Connecticut crowd, but 
soon distinguished himself by his ability to shake 
all oyer every time he cracked his half-moon smile. 
In consequence "Ev" has equipped himself with 
shook absorbei's so that now he rides easily over the 
roughest roads. His greatest failings are playing 
cards and pulling the weed and at present he is 
trying to overcome "that tired feeling" so as to be- 
come one of oiu' leading agriculturalists.

Bennington, Vt. M. A. C. Farmhouse 


Here we have one of the original Green Mountain 
boys, born under the shadow of the famous Ben- 
nington monument. He took literally the advice 
of the sophomores and for a whole year was seen 
but not heard. Then he received an invitation to 
those memorable watchnight services over the 
death of '18's picture hopes. Presto! He changed 
over night into one of the roughest of roughnecks. 
Hen's ambition just now is to land the lightweight 
wrestling championship of the college, but he is 
being crowded pretty close for first honors by Sam 
Tuthill, his partner and inseparable companion.

Kewp, finding Tech a little too fast for him, drop- 
ped his 300 pounds (more or less) on Aggie soil in 
the fall of 1913. Since then he has been the most 
"regular" of the regular guys, even going so far as 
to anticipate the millennium by fussing in Draper 
Hall. Harold is our biggest man, and we are proud 
of him, even if he was the first of us to make the 
big splash. You would never accuse him of being 
a Paul Swan, but he really is graceful, especially at 
a wax-tread at Masonic.

If it is true that the meek shall inherit the earth, 
here is a fellow who is destined to own a lot of it 
some da,y. For a whole year he labored with us 
and maintained a silence almost as profound as 
that of the faculty on the examination question. 
When at last he made himself known, our only re- 
gret was that we did not find him out sooner. Jim 
is one of those quiet philosophers who is wedded 
to his old pipe and is full of wise and timely sayings. 
If you like a fellow with an awful "line", steer 
away; but if you want a faithful friend, Jimmie's

He looks like Lincoln — when you look at his

that took away the freshmen's candy in the tug-of-

Dame Fortune must -have smiled on Bobby from

far he has succeeded in sidestepping all the ad- 
vances of the local fair ones. He is a consistent 
worker for 1917, always ready for anything, whether 
it's a fight or a frolic. Though he'd never get

Just before "Johnny O" had his day of reckoning,

shines. He got his preparation near Waltham, 
where he learned to be on the watch for flowers. 
He wanted to speciahze in aquatic plants while

interfered with his plans.

We suppose Brooklyn sent Joe up to Aggie to 
learn something about life in the rural districts, and 
to study the laws of landscape-gardening, in order 
that in due time he might return to his home city 
and make it beautiful. Joe has musical ability, 
as shown by his "woik" as he calls it, in the mando- 
lin club, and Pinkie Waugh says this is very helpful 
in studying landscraping, so we have every hope 
that Joe will be among the topnotchers some day. 
His quiet manner combined with his dry and ready 
wit, has made Joe the friend of everyone who knows 
him, and we all wish him success in his endless task 
of remodelling Brooklyn.

When this cute little thing first gushed forth from 
the rubberized precmcts of Walpole, it was difficult 
to determine whether it was a boy or a girl. A 
compromise was affected so that sometimes lie is 
seen in one role and sometimes in the other with 
perhaps a slight preference in favor of the latter. 
Actmg has always been his hobby for Charlie is a 
regular little cut-up, but his dainty, rippUng laugh 
will always give him away even when in a crowd, 
and the rising inflection of his "No, did you" puts 
him in a class by himself.

"Tim" IS the "funny-fella" from Sixteen. He 
has a great line of funny stories, and he is the only 
one that can demonstrate this particular line of 
goods. Lately he took a vacation and went back 
to the soil. His great thirst for knowledge and 
ambition to rise yet unsatisfied, he returned to the 
fold to learn how to grasp the yeast wherewith to 
do the ascending. The only things that may prove 
a draw-back are: that he did not "prep." with us, 
and that he once lived in East Entry North.

This Yankee Doodle Boy (see birth-mark) grew 
up with the rest of the little onions in Sunderland, 
where the peculiar soil imparted that particular 
quaUty to his make-up which will cause the tears 
to flow whenever he tells the story of the midnight 
jitney ride in Paterson. "LiF Arthur" — who how- 
ever is no white hope — is another one of the wax-

1918—^ $epic €pic 

Should you ask me, whence these Sophomores, 

Whence these men of might and prowess, 

With their wondrous swelhng muscles 

And their mien of higher wisdom. 

I should answer, I should tell you, 

They are from the beetling Berkshires 

Where the wildcat stalks the woodchuck, 

They are from the far Nantucket 

Where the herring flees the codfish, 

Every seat of glory sends them. 

And they come with flaunt and flourish. 

It was in the early autumn. 

In the harvest moon, September, 

That our warriors first assembled 

On the hunting grounds of Aggie. 

Our estate was mean and lowly, 

For we were but humble Freshmen 

And we suffered many buffets, 

Knocked about by cruel Fortune, 

Swatted lustily with paddles. 

Doused and soused in fetid water. 

Oftentimes we heard the warwhoop, 

"Show some Pep, you bloody Freshmen!" 

And we barkened to the warwhoop, 

Showed our Pep in scrappy struggles. 

And ere long our foes were vanquished. 

Vanquished, scalped, and drawn and quartered. 

Thus we strove for education. 


In the spring we held a banquet, 

Such a banquet! Such a banquet! 

Enemies essayed to thwart us 

But we foiled them and outfought them, 

Such a banquet! Such a banquet! 

Nevermore will it be equalled. 

Where were we in athletics, 

In the games of skill and muscle? 

We were there in athletics! 

In basketball our mighty warriors 

Elbowed onward to the champship, 

And the last sun of the season 

Saw us crush our foes in baseball. 

Thus progressed our education. . . . 

Moons passed, and once more at Aggie 
We. assembled for the slaughter, 
Breathing fire and vowing vengeance, 
Frightening Freshies into frenzies, 
Playing all the pleasant humbugs, 
All the tricks and hocus-pocus, 
That we learned when we were Freshmen. 
Victory perches on our shoulders. 
Glory clothes us and enshrouds us. 
Aureoles of pride enwreathe us. 
Truly, we are wondrous warriors. 

And we're getting educatedl 

Yes, we're getting educated.

Amherst, Mass., 
December ten 1915. 
Dere Maw: 

i am orful sorry thet i couldn't rite befour but I hed to give thet feller in the 
treasure orfic so much cash thet i didn't hev enough to buy a postij stamp even. 
I hev jest got the tew cents together, pleze inclose a stamp when you rite me if 
yer want an anser. Them new cow hide boots of paws thet he'd worn only tew 
yeres got all wore out same as my pocket book, sence i hed to stand in line so long 
to git registrared and treasurared and deaned. Pleze send me them old sneakers 
thet I hed come three j^eres last summer, stick a piece of cardboard on ter the 
whole in the bottom, an i guess they'll dew alright. 

Say, Maw, but yer oughter a scene thet rope pull. One class or the other hes 
ter hev a bath once a year jest fer the sake of keeping clene i surpose. They took 
and guv us fellers the bath this yere, but i don't think we was half es dirty as some 
of them softomores. They're cleneing out the pond now, but i don't surpose there 
is any conektion between the wash we got and the kondition of the bottom of thet 
pond, one nite the Softs gut as all out in our perjamers to perade down to Am- 
herst and make speeches and things. I put on thet pear of red and grene striped 
ones thet uncle Tom left me when he defunked. the Softs thought they was a 
good target and paddled me purty hard. The pants part got ripped orful. we 
busted up there old perade howsomever. they caught a few of us, but the most 
of us jest simply left our perjamers behind and beat it. 

We wanted ter get our pictures took but the Softs didn't think the cameras 
we hed were good enuf and so bruk them all up. They sat up all nite, too, jest 
ter keep us from getting together and getting it took. We was all in shelter, but 
them poor coots was out in the kold, except fer three of there feller conspirators 
thet we hed kapchured and kept with us. We didn't get a picture, but we didn't 
get froze, nuther. 

Say, Maw, but we hev got some ball teme in our klass. We almost bete the 
softs the first time and the second they won what I call an eleventh hour victory, 
we was a going ter stop at eleven o'clock and, rite in the middle of an inning 
with two of our teme on base, the clock struck. The softs ran rite away from there, 
jest as if they thought something was after them, i'm playing rite guard on the 
football teme, but i don't know es the Softs will play us this yere sence we are a 
pretty husky crowd, in course they don't want ter get a beating. I take after 
paw in heving a good thik hed, but it helps er lot in football. 

With luv ter the hole fambly, including Mandy Green

l^i)e Origin anb ®ebelopment of tf)e 

Jfres^bman panquet ^easion j 

The word "banquet" at once brings to our minds "big eats", good fellowship, 
and a general good time, and by putting the word "Freshman" before it we add 
to the meeting good-natured class rivalry, class spirit, and a firm basis on which 
to build the bigger and better spirit of the college. 

The ancient Hebrews banqueted; the old Romans had their festive occa- .j 
sions; the Athenians ate their dainties to the sound of soft music; and even the 
American Indians feasted on the produce of a big killing after a successful hunt. 
It remained, however, for the Freshman classes at M. A. C. to combine all the 
qualities of different types into their one momentous banquet of the Freshman year. 

Even in the very first classes of the college a Freshman class banquet was an 
accepted thing, — serving as a get-together and time for general good feeling. 
But just when class rivalry and Sophomore opposition started we cannot be sure 
of. We do know, however, that in the year 1881, when 1884 were Freshmen, they 
held a "feed" of some sort in the North room in North College which was some- 
what demoralized by the advent of a quantity of pepper from above — poured thru 
holes in the ceiling from the attic by a few Sophomores. Whether this was 
concerted action on the part of the Sophomore class, or the work of a few of them 
bent on mischief, we do not know, but it began a little opposition which has since 
borne results. 

From this time on the Freshmen continued to have their banquets, usually 
in the spring, with here and there a little spice to the occasions. Sometimes they 
were held in conjunction with the Juniors and sometimes by themselves under the 
name of "Freshman Night", nearly all the surrounding towns or cities being 
favored by one or more visits from the banqueting classes. 

Along in the late 90's, however, and early 1900's we find class rivalry coming 
in strong during the Freshman banquet. On June 6, 1902, the class of '05 had 
their banquet at the Cooley House in Springfield and in the Signal of that year we /;; 
find mention of a little disturbance caused by Sophomores during the banquet. 

In 1903 the class of '06 .showed up in strength and, after misleading the Sopho- 
mores by wide detours, almost the entire class gathered at the switch above the 
Hatch Experiment Station at midnight on May IS and then went unmolested to '-:], 
South Deerfield where the banqtiet — or class breakfast as the Sophomores termed ■ j : 
it — ^was held at the Bloody Brook House. The class returned to Amherst about !:\', 
7.30 A. M. on May 19, much elated over their success, and much to the chagrin .'ji 
of the waiting "Sophs." 1; 

The next year the class of '07 — ' ' by evading our watchful enemy at noontide" ! j i 
went to Hartford, Conn., by trolley and there held their banquet at the New Dom ~ 1 
Hotel on May 13, 1904. -^i 

Preferring a change in direction for their banquet, the class of '08 journeyed "^ 
to North Adams and there, well out of reach of the mystified Sophomores, they -4' 
enjoyed their banquet to the fullest extent. g 

Our "Freshman Banquet" or "Banquet Season" as we look upon it today 1! 
does not have its official origin buried so far back in the college annals. ^^M 



On the Senate Records for March 6, 1906, in the handwriting of Bartlett, 
Secretary of the Senate, we find the fohowing ; 

"Voted — that in the future the Freshmen shall hold their class banquet durin<; 
the first two weeks in May, onlj'." 

This action of the Senate seems to have caused a great deal of adverse criti- 
cism and serious discussion ; so much so in fact that the following is later found in 
the Senate Records : 

"March 22, 1906. Special meeting called to order by Pres. Peakes. Limita- 
tion of the Freshman banquet reconsidered and discussed. Suggested that we meet 
committee of the faculty and talk it over with them." 

As a result of further discussion and conferences on the matter the records 
of the meeting of March 26, 1906, read as follows: 

"Voted — that the Freshman class shall hold its banquet on or between April 
20 and June 1 and that they shall not be molested outside of the town limits." 

On May 4 of this year, just four months from the time Pres. Butterfleld had 
been elected to the Presidency of the college, the Freshman succeeded in getting 
away for the first successful banquet under Senate rules. 

Early Friday morning just at daybreak the class as a body started to walk 
to Hadley where they took a car for "Hamp" and then to Springfield. At the 
Hadley car bams the Sophs appeared just as the Freshman were ready to start. 
Descriptions of affairs when two classes get together are a little difficult but we 
have the word of the College Signal that the Sophs were not given a great deal of 
encouragement to enter the car and soon retired somewhat shaken and bruised. 

Although this may have been the first banquet scrap Old Hadley ever saw, 
it was not destined to be the last one as later years have sho-wn. 

The Sophs, returning from their unsuccessful attempt to break up the Fresh- 
men, found several of the latter straggling along the road toward Hadley and took 
them into custody but freed them in time to let them reach Springfield where the 
banquet was held at the Highland House at 8 o'clock with 52 members present. 

In 1907, for some unexplained reason, the banquet rules fail to appear in the 
Senate Records so all we know about them is this, taken from the College Signal : 

"The Senate has prepared concise and definite rulings on the matter of the 
Freshman banquet — rulings which no one can misinterpret, which will nulify all 
previous precedents and establish a wise and definite precedent for the years to come. 
The time during which the banquet may be held is definitely stipulated. There 
are no restrictions on the hour of day when the Freshmen can leave town. They 
may leave at any moment during the month and a half allowed them. The Sopho- 
mores are forbidden to create a disturbance in another town, and the exact rneaning 
of "disturbance" and "town" is embodied in the rulings. An exact definition of 
what shall consist a breaking up of the banquet is also given. The energies of the 
Sophomores will be directed toward retaining three or more officers of the Freshman 
Class. There will be no definite advantage gained in retaining from attendance at 
the banquet other members of the class. The rulings are simply and clearly ex- 
pressed; there will be no excuse for breaking them by citlu'r Freshmen or Sopho- 
mores. The danger of an occurrence which would l)ring tliscredit upon the college 
and its students is minimized, and yet at the same time a premium is placed upon 
the vigilance of Ixilh Freshmen and Sophomores. Again the Senate has proved 
itself a wise deliberati\'e body, worthy of the utmost resiiect and hearty support 
of the student l)ody." 


Apparently the premium on vigilance was not high enough or the Freshmen 
had successfully solved the problem of finding the unknown % for they found a 
way of getting their officers, who were known to the Sophomores, safely away and 
out of sight and reach of 1909. 

On Thursday, May 9, the officers who were closely shadowed by Sophomores, 
entered their French section and were all in the recitation room at 9.15. A little 
later a covered express wagon of the Horticultural Department backed up to the 
door, the officers jumped in, and with the horses on the run were hurried to North- 
ampton road where they took the car for "Hamp." From here they went to 
Springfield, thence to Westfield and Pittsfield. From the latter city they went 
to North Adams where they were met by some other 1910 men and rushed to 
' 'The Wilson" where a banquet was held that night. 

The other remaining members of the class left Amherst in two divisions, one 
going to Sunderland and walking across the river to Deerfield and here taking a 
special car to North Adams, while the other division went b}^ way of Northampton 
and Greenfield. 

During the evening 15 or 20 Sophomores landed in the town (arriving mostly 
by freight), but their attempts to "start something" were frustrated thru the aid 
of policeman McKane. Just after the class sat down at 8.45 the entrance ot a 
few eggs thru the windows caused a little excitement but the disturbance soon 
died down and the Freshmen enjoyed their successful banquet in peace. 

In connection with the banquet season in 1908 we get a side light on another 
of our college customs, the rope pull, which at this time came in the spring. In 
the records for April 19, 1908, the first motion reads as follows; 

"Motion made and seconded that rope pull shall not take place before Thurs- 
day night provided the Freshman banquet does not come before .the same time. 

At this same meeting the next official change or step in the growth of the 
laanquet rules appears on record : 

"Motion made and seconded that Freshman class give a sealed list of names of 
their class officers to President of the Senate, to be opened in presence of Senate 
afterwards. This must be handed in before x'Vpril 19 of their Freshman year. 
Carried." P. J. ALGER, SecH'y. 

The Freshman class had already openly elected their officers and these had 
been captured by the Sophomores, but the Signal for this period gives it best: — 

"One of the cleverest bits of strategy that has ever been accomplished about 
here was done by the Freshman during the week of April 19th. After the Amherst 
game the wily Sophomores cnpturcd the Freshman class president and officers, in 
order to break up the baufiuct wliich they thought was coming during the week. 
This done, they deemed it also wise to challenge the Freshmen to a rope pull contest 
on the following Monda}'. The Junior class, however, by virtue of their position 
as upper classmen, carried the matter to the Senate. The Senate ruled the i-ludlenge 
to be illegal provided the banquet was not held before the Thursday of that week. 
This ruling was necessary, that the Juniors might have a class day. But the Sopho- 
mores did not feel the justice of the decree, so they challenged the next day again. 
We need not draw conclusions here, but the strategic movement was evident to all. 
Of course the challenge was accepted, and the Freshmen had put their heads into a 
noose. But just here was where the Sophomores were completely outclassed by 
the superiority of the Freshman wit. A large demonstration by the Freshmen 
frightened away the Sophomores and caused the removal of the captives to a more 
secure place of concealment. Someone, however, blundered, and .so enabled the 
Freshmen scouts to very easily follow the Sophomores. Deeming four men a suffi- 


cient number to guard the Freshman officers, the Sophomores set out to carry the 
first part of their plan through successfully. Unfortunately they did not succeed 
and were badly beaten, the Freshmen walking away finally with the rope. Imme- 
diately after the usual celebration the Freshmen left town in a body to capture their 
president. Skillfully led on by their scouts they located the spot where the cap- 
tives were held and besieged it. Once more the Sophomores took flight and were 
followed and compelled to surrender their prisoners under threats of complete an- 
nihilation. What was seemingly a glorious victory for the Sophomores was 
doubly turned into an ignominious defeat. The Freshmen marched away to Holyoke 
where with cheers for 1911 and 1909 they departed for Hartford. Here in spite 
of the great number of difficulties that presented themselves they secured a Hotel 
and had menus printed for a banquet that evening. 

"At eight o'clock, April 22d, the class sat down to their banquet at the New 
Dom Hotel." 


In 1909 no changes in rules are recorded. The Freshman class used the 
"side door Pullman" method of escape, entering a freight car near Clark Hall, 
and were carried direct to the B. & M. Station just in time to get the special car 
which had been provided for them on the 3.19 Boston train. The class was joined 
in Boston by their officers who has been absent from Amherst a week (a condition 
which is impossible under present banquet rules) and at 8.15 on April 23 the class 
of 1912, with 71 members present, sat down to their banquet at the American 

1910 Panquct IRuleS 

"The Freshman class banquet shall be held on or between April 19 and June 
1. The Sophomores shall create no disturbance in another town, while trying to 
break up the banquet. A breach of peace shall be considered a disturbance. If 
the Sophomores prevent the Freshman class president or any other three class 
officers from attending the banquet, it shall not be considered successful. 

' ' The Freshman class must give a sealed list of the names of their class officers 
to the President of the Senate to be opened in the presence of the Senate. This 
list must be handed in before April 19." 

Under the foregoing rules on April 21, 1910, the class of 1913 held their ban- 
quet at the Hotel Warren in Worcester at 8 P. M. By leaving Amherst at 3 A. M. 
and walking to South Amherst they boarded the 6.08 train and went to Worcester 
direct with no "Sophomoric" interference since this class had decided, after keep- 
ing a careful watch until 1 A. M., that there was ' 'nothing doing" and at the time 
the Freshmen were "silently creeping away" the 1912 men were soundly sleeping. 

That afternoon, at the Worcester station, the only class encounter of the sea- 
son occurred when several Sophomores attempted to show a Freshman the errors 
of his ways and succeeded in manhandling him pretty thoroughly. 

"Kid" Gore's name appears in the list of officers and it is said that at the 
banquet most of the 1913 class "Pep" originated — at any rate only 10 out of the 
class of 122 were absent. 


Senate Record of Feb. 22, 1911, printed in Signal, Mar. 21, 1911: 

1 . The banquet shall be held between the first Friday of May and the second 
Monday thereafter, inclusive. 

2. Ninety per cent, of each class, including Freshman officers, must be present 






at chapel on the morning of the opening of the season. No Freshman shaU be 
prevented from attending chapel on the first morning of the season. 

3. The Freshman class shall give a sealed list of names of their class officers 
to the President of the Senate to be opened in the presence of Senate after the 
banquet season. This list must be handed to the President before April 19. 

4. The banquet shall not be a success if the Sophomores succeed in detaining 
the class president or any three other class officers, including the chairman of the 
banquet committee as an officer in this connection, or if 50% of the Freshman 
class is not present at the banquet. 

5. There shall be no breach of peace outside of town limits by either class. 
The use of firearms is considered as a breach of peace. 

6. Infringement of these rules by either class constitutes a victory for the 
other class. 

These rules were the result of an investigation and report of a committee for 
banquet rules and embody several new ideas which are still kept in the rules. 
The shortening of the season from almost two months to a little under two weeks 
is the most important of the changes, but attendance at chapel on the morning 
of the season's opening is another which has worked out well and been retained, in 
varied forms, to the present time. 

Up to this time it had only been the officers who counted in attendance at 
the banquet but here we have a clause calling for at least one-half the class to be 
present, and last, but not least, the statement that violation of these rules by a 
class, forfeits the banquet, — a rule which has never yet been put into force. 

The banquet held under these rules was a success in all ways. After a series 
of short brushes between the two lower classes Thursday night and Friday morn- 
ing the Freshmen, about noon, cut across lots to the C. V. tracks, flagged the noon 
train, and when met by the Sophomores at the Amherst station they were safely 
inside the cars and were not seriously molested. The banquet was held at the 
American House, Boston, with the officers and more than 100 members present. 

Though eluded, the Sophomores showed that they had inventive minds to 
say the least. A careful reading of Rule 2 will show that no definite chapel is 
mentioned, it being taken for granted that the college chapel was meant. Taking 
a literal translation of the rule, however, the Sophomores found room for doubt 
so that three Freshmen who had been spirited away the night before were allowed 
the privilege of attending chapel at a school twenty-five miles from Amherst in 
company with their captors. 

This little affair caused much discussion and as a result we find on the Senate 
Records for April 9, 1912: "Rules Nos. 1 and 4 to be the same as in 1911, but 
No. 2 to read 90% of each class, including Freshman officers, must be present at 
the Mass. Agri. College Chapel exercises on the morning of the opening of the ban- 
quet season and must he in their regular seats and the Freshman class must answer 
to the roll as called by the Senate. No Freshman shall be prevented from attend- 
ing said chapel exercises on the first morning of said season". 

No. 3 was also slightly changed to read as follows: "The Freshman class 
shall give a sealed list of the full names of all Freshman class officers, each with 
his respective office designated, to the President of the Senate to be opened in the 
presence of the Senate after the close of the banquet season. This list must be 
handed to the President before April 19". 

No. 5 remained the same but No. 6 had added to it: "and any one of these 

On Friday morning, May 3, 1912, the Freshmen (1915) put over a class 
get away which is remembered as the boldest and cleverest opening of a banquet 
season yet enacted. 

Leaving the Chapel in a body the class, with the officers in the center, 
started for the center of the town, opposed all the way by the Sophomores, so 
that the affair took on the aspect of a running fight. 

Students who are accustomed to going to the Post Office frequently are prob- 
ably aware of the short cut thru the allej^ way which goes do^vn beside Strong's 
Bakery and comes out a little above the Post Office. It was this alley which proved 
the undoing of the Sophomores. While the Freshmen kept up a firm front at the 
head of the alleyway their officers quietly slipped out and soon were speeding away 
in an automobile which had been waiting for them. 

They reappeared safely the next night at the Woodland Park Hotel, Auburn- 
dale, and together with seven-eighths of the class sat down, victorious, to their 


The year 1913 brings several radical changes in the Senate's Banquet rules, 
and incidentally places 1916 on record as the first losing class of Freshmen. 

The running fight thru town in 1912 was considered a little too shocking to 
the sensitive nerves of the townspeople so that the rule calling for chapel attendance 
was dropped; it being hoped that this would prevent complete massing of the 

The season was also shortened again, rtmning from S A. M. on the first Wed- 
nesday of May to the second Monday thereafter, inclusive. Also, for the first 
time, we have a banquet zone or reserve in which all Freshman officers had to be 
at the beginning of the season and could not leave until twenty-four hours before 
the banquet. To keep Freshmen from being forced out of the zone a clause for- 
bidding this was put in and the statement that the banquet could not be held until 
the first Saturday of the season gave the Sophomores a definite time to work in 
within the zone. The rule on the zone reads: "The banquet reserve shall be 
bounded as follows; west, Connecticut River, north, Fitchburg division of B. & 
N. R. R., south, Central Mass. division of the B. & M. R. R. 

Up to this time Freshman class officers for the banquet season had been secret- 
ly elected by a few, picked out by the president, or selected by a committee for 
that purpose so that oftentimes classes did not know whether their officers were 
with them or not until told by the election committee. In these rules, howe\'er, 
directions for electing officers are carefully laid down: 

"Election of Freshman class officers shall be in open class meeting. All present 
at the meeting must know the officers elected before leaving the meeting in which the 
ballot is taken. Ninety per cent, of the class must he at this meeting." 

After all the labor that went into these carefully made rules, it seems too bad 
that they were not really needed as there was very little excitement in the banquet 
reserve, the siege of a house on Hallock street being the only real disturbance on 
Saturday or Sunday. 

Although there was not mvich excitement in Amherst there was one well directed 
swoo]i on the ]:)art of the Soj^homores, — a little seance in a street in Brooklinc, a 
short auto journey and the Freshman president was safely in captivity in Soutli 


Framingham. Being of a generous frame of mind the Sophomores took their un- 
wiUing captive by electrics to Worcester and then treated him to a train ride to 
Amherst where he rested secure if not content while his classmates waited in vain 
in faraway Boston for their worthy president to appear to make the banquet a 
success. His absence, however, was just enough to lose them the banquet so that 
on May 5, 1913, at the Exchange Club in Boston and at 7 o'clock sharp in the even- 
ing the class of 1916 ate the first unsuccessful banquet under Senate rules. 


"Misery loves company" — that is one excuse, or we might begin. ''Not to 
be outdone"; but to give credit where at least a little credit is due we will say: 
"After being 'done' by 1916 the class of 1917 held the second losing banquet on 
the afternoon of Monday, May 4th at the Hotel Bond in Hartford." 

The rules of this season were little different from those of the preceding year, 
the principal changes being the cutting down of the reserve to the section bounded 
by the Connecticut River, Sunderland to Deerfield road, Sunderland Street Rail- 
way line to Amherst and the Valley electric line from Amherst to the Connecticut 
River — this section to be enlarged by the addition of the triangular piece of land 
included between Lover's Lane, East Pleasant Street and Pleasant Street. An- 
other change was in the time of the season, the rule reading "From 6 P. M. on the 
first Monday in Alay to the second Friday in May, inclusive". 




Our, the Freshman, class officers were elected in an open meeting one cloudy 
night while our friends the Sophomores were enjoying themselves at a little enter- 
tainment in the drill hall. Though they became anxious about the absence of 
"Freshies" in any number they had no inkling of what was in the wind until we, 
as a class, marched down to the drill hall and proceeded to enjoy the remainder 
of the entertainment. From that time until the beginning of the banquet season 
there was a great deal of "private investigation" (Sophomores secreted under 
beds and in closets) at the various Freshman's houses, but so well were the names 
of the officers kept that none, or at least very, very few outside the class knew who 
they were until after the season was well under way. 

The class was divided into squads of about ten men each, under a leader, and 
it was the duty of the leader to see that his men got safely away. Various methods 
were used but the main point of union was on the B. & M. tracks where a special 
train Was to pick up the class at 2 A. M. Monday morning and carry us safely 
through Amherst to Northampton, then down through Springfield to Hartford, 
Conn. The train was hired, the officers were put away in hiding and things went 
along very well until the train reached Hadley on the way back to Northampton 
with the class on board. Here, when we opened the converted freight car to take 
out our officers and carry them away with us we found to our dismay, anger and 
various other sensations that our officers were gone — abducted by 1916 men. 
And right here is where 1917 earned the reputation of running the most expensive 
banquet on record. Automobiles scoured the country high and low but the officers 
were not located and the train drew out of Hadley and headed for Hartford where 
the class spent most of the day "seeing the sights". 

Hadley, in 1906, was the scene of one "banquet scrap" and in this year was 
destined to see another one and one much lustier for its eight years growth. 

When the banquet was well under way, early in the evening, a call came for 
twenty "roughnecks" to return to Hadley and attempt to rescue the officers. 
By train to Springfield and by auto from there to Hadley in a pouring rain shows 
the method by which they made the trip. The officers were being held prisoners 
in the upper room of a shed in Hadley and this, naturally, was the center of attack. 
Just what happened none can say definitely as the light was one of the first things 
to go out, but we do know that the affair was interesting enough to have the fire 
department called out and it was only after a line of hose had been laid and a stream 
played on the scrapping '16 and '17 men that the melee subsided and affairs straight- 
ened out. Just what the chances were of getting our officers we will not say as 
we might be called boasting but the final result was a caUing off of the season and 
the leaving of the decision of the banquet to the Senate. This body decided in 
favor of '16 and 1917 went on record as the second class — and that consecutively — 
to lose its Freshman banquet. Of the class officers, five were captured in the 
freight car. One of them, the class captain, escaped — handcuffs and all — by 
jumping through a window and made his way to Hartford, but too late for the 
banquet. Just where the "bracelets" came from we do not know but they were 
of such an antique pattern that it was necessary to get a key from the old collection 
at police headquarters in Springfield in order to free him. 

The only other officer present, the historian, succeeded in so completely fool- 
ing the Sophomores that even they still tell of sitting out under his window and 
shivering in the cold of the early morning while he had gone out under their noses, 
early in the evening, dressed as a lady and, leaning back comfortably in his bor- 
rowed plumage, had ridden safely away in an automobile, leaving only an empty 
room for the waiting Sophomores. 


If reckless spending of money marked tHe banquet season in 1914, the op- 
posite was true in 1915 as the result of new rules laid down by the Senate to insure 
a less expensive celebration. The time of the season was again shghtly shortened, ju 
Rule 1 reading: V]i 

"The banquet season shall open at 3.00 P. M. on the first Saturday in May ' ijl 

and shall continue to the following Monday at midnight." ■: ..!j 

This in itself would have lessened expenses, but Rules 7 and 9 made the 
spending of much money an impossibility. Rule 7 reads: 

"The banquet must be held on Monday, May :3, not before 6 P. M. and within l^ jj 

35 miles of Amherst by rail." 

Although this limitation on the distance from Amherst of holding the ban- 
quet and the time of holding it lessened the chances of the Freshmen, it was more 
than offset by Rule 9, reading : — - , : ; 

"No member of either class shall use any automobile, motorcycle, bicycle, 
horse or street car after the special mass meeting Saturday, May 1, until twelve 
hours before the banquet, and then such use will be allowed only outside the deten- 
tion zone." 

As Sophomore activities were confined by rule to the banquet zone which was ; 
the same as the year before, the use of a good pair of legs was the only method of . , 
propelling allowed throughout the season. 'I 

Of the other rules, there were no changes worthy of note, those of the previous ; 

year proving satisfactory^ with the exception of a special mass meeting (7) which 
was called on Saturday morning instead of coming at a regular chapel time as in 
former seasons. 

Banquet season excitement began long before the season itself and showed 
up for the first time when the Freshmen class meeting at which the officers were 
announced was interrupted by a delegation of interested Sophomores. The Fresh- 
men plans had been laid so well, however, that the interruption made no difference ; j 
either way as all announcements of election results were made in code. Previous ;; 
to spring vacation, nominations for officers had been made and ballots printed. , ;■!! 
These were distributed, by mail mostly, during the vacation and the result announc- V.\ 
ed at the above-mentioned class meeting in a combination code familiar only to ^ ilj' 
Freshmen so that if Mr. "A" was announced as President and Mr. "lOU" for 
Treasurer, only Freshmen knew the winning candidate. ji 

Directly after the special Saturday morning chapel, at which the Sophomores -^jl 
were kept one-half hour longer than the Freshmen, 1918 put several of their officers ,-'.,]< 
into a wagon and covered them over with blankets to keep their identity secret j; 
and "drove off" — with students as "horse power". These officers were secreted . :;[ 
in Mr. Gaskill's house, toward North Amherst, and though several Freshmen were -J 
taken from this house by 1917 men, the officers were not molested and the President . ; ' ' 
with two others left the house dressed as "young ladies" the following Monday ',';'' 
and after crossing the car track were out of the zone and then enjoyed an auto 
ride to the scene of the banquet, keeping to the back roads and coming into Green- 
field from above. 


The other officers — several of whom were on the baseball squad at Williston — 
were to spend their time at Graves' in Sunderland where they were to go after the 
game. In these arrangements there was a little hitch as two families in Sunder- 
land answer to the name of Graves and the officers got the wrong house. How- 
ever, when they landed in the wrong one they made it a right one and stayed there 
until taken away Alonday in automobiles which waited right across the car track 
outside the zone. 

Of the two other officers the Vice-President was captured in the "right" 
Graves' house, while the second, after finding both "Graves' " surrounded by '17 
men managed to get lodging at another house and soon after daybreak Monday he 
was headed toward the boundary line which he crossed on the Sunderland side 
and headed for Greenfield. 

The main body of the class had left town as soon as the season began and 
had spent the time in various places till Monday, when all of them headed for 
Greenfield also where the banquet was held that evening, May 3, at the Mansion 

Before the banquet was over, all the officers and all but two of the class mem- 
bers were present, one officer and a dozen others being released by '17 early in the 
evening when it was found that not enough men or officers had been captured to 
make the banquet a failure. 

In the last year or two, especially since the expensive affair of 1914, much 
has been said about discontinuing the banquet season , the reasons being the sav- 
ing in time and money. To be sure, the time used for the banquet season might 
well be used to good advantage on studies and the money spent might go to pay 
up back board at the dining hall, but the fact remains that in no other activity, — 
athletic, social, or scholastic — does the freshman class as a class gain a stronger 
union, develop more class spirit, or become a stronger unit of the college of which 
they are a part. The banquet season is the solidifying factor of the freshman year. 
Previouslv demoralized classes come out of the banquet season united as one man 
and able as a whole, to do their best in furthering the affairs of their ovm class 
and the college. 

The banquet is a landmark around which all other affairs seem to hinge. 
In the past they have been bad, they have been good, they have been fair, but 
whatever dissatisfaction has been caused or whatever damage done through mis- 
applied class rivalry it is to be hoped that from now on, even as in the years past, 
each freshman class in the spring of the year may have the opportunity of gaining 
class solidity, spirit and "pep" in the continuation of the

jfoottjall^easionof 1915 

The football eleven never opened its 
season with better promise of success than 
it did this year. Only two new places were 
left to be filled, but a few changes had to be 
made, because of the graduation of a quarter- 
back, full-back, and center. Five games 
have already been played, and although the 
schedule is the hardest an Aggie team has 
ever faced, the results thus far show her an 
even break in games played and far ahead 
in points scored. Probably the most satis- 
factory result, as far as students and alumni 
are concerned, was that of the Harvard 
game. Altho the score was 7-0 against us, 
Aggie really outplayed her opponents, and a 
fluke play in the last two minutes gave the 
game to Harvard. The creditable showing 
in this game, as well as in all the others that 
have been played, has been due to the ex- 
cellent work of Coach Brides, who signed a 
one-year agreement after his three-year con- 
tract had expired. His system and per- 
sonality have succeeded in a fair way, but 
in no such way as they deserve, and our best 
hope for next season's team, is that "Doc" 
will be here to show us how.

The season of 1915 was started with 
little baseball material, a condition here- 
tofore almost unknown and hence the 
showing of seven wins and eight losses 
was not up to the usual standard of 
"Aggie Quality". "Billy" Fitzmaurice is 
to be with us again this year, and given 
material with which to work, will develop 
a team for the coming season which will 
uphold the good reputation made by for- 
mer teams at M. A. C. We have lost but 
two men, including Captain Johnson 
from the pitching staff, and although hand- 
icapped by his loss, it is the hope of all 
loyal Aggie supporters that a winning 
combination may be developed from the 
men still left in college. The football 
team has well made history with a vic- 
tory in the first game on the new athletic 
field, and so the baseball team bids fair 
to have history repeat itself when it plays

^otktv ^easion of 1915 

The hockey season of 1914-15 was played 
under very unfavorable conditions, but in 
spite of warm weather, poor ice, the lack of a 
coach and a poor rink, the team finished a 
very satisfactory season. Harvard, Yale, 
Dartmouth, Princeton and Columbia were 
among the teams met and in every case the 
reputation of M. A. C. was upheld. On pa- 
per the past season would seem to the out- 
sider to be somewhat of a failure. Biit to 
the close follower of the game who considers 
the teams played and the comparative lack 
of material, there is not a doubt that the 
team was equal to any collegiate hockey 
team in the country. This year there is 
hope for even a better team. Plans for a 
coach are already under way and the rink 
will undoubtedly be improved. Only two 
men, Archibald and Johnson, have been 
lost by graduation, but it will be hard to fill 
the places of these players. A well balanced 
team with a clear slate is the aim of the 
team this year.

^f)e ^vmk ^eagon of 1914=1915 

In the winter of 1914-15 the relay team again had the services of Coach Dick- 
inson. Matches were arranged with Tufts, W. P. I., Bowdoin, and Rhode Island 
State and were run off at the various Armory games. Prospects were very bright, 
when the season opened with a victory over Tufts in the best race of the Coast 
Artillery games. Russell '16, Mostrom '16, Sturtevant '17, Pratt '17, Babbitt '18, 
and Bishop '15 were used in the various races and made a creditable showing. 

In the spring season meet against W. P. I., the lack of men in the field events 
gave Aggie a bad handicap and Worcester opened her new field with a victory. 
At the Tufts meet in Mcdford the team was better balanced and Tufts barely won 

by the margin of two points . At the inter- 
coUegiates, M. A. C. took her first point 
when Richards '16 beat out a large field 
and finished fourth in the two mile run. 
The time of this race was very fast and 
failed to equal the record of 9 minutes, 
35 3-5 seconds by only 1-5 of a second. 


Cros^g Countrp 

The fan of 1914 saw M. A. C. with 
the best cross country team the college 
ever had. A new course over "Prexy's" 
hill and east toward the rifle range and 
back gave the men a very hard race with 
Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The 
fast Worcester men found their match 
when Richards, Aiken, and Coley finished 
before their best man was over the line. 
At the New England Inter-Collegiate 
meet, the showing was very creditable, 
Richard finished sixth and Aiken eighth. 
Maine, M. I. T., Dartmouth, were the 
only teams to beat us and Aggie in fourth 
place can feel proud over the defeat of 
Amherst, Brown, Williams, W. P I., 
Colby, and Bowdoin.

0ht to Eennep 

My purse is flat and limp and weary, 

My thoughts are sometimes dark and dreary 

When Shylock mails his little dun, 

Fond recollections o'er me come. 

I think of father's old bank-books, 

And wonder how real money looks. 

I think of days when I was young, 

And spent Dad's dollars — one by one — 

And now, by heck, I'm far away, 

My money's gone — there's hell to pay. 

My summer's wages — long since spent — 

And Kenney must know where they went. 

I worked my stint in sun and shower 

For only fifteen cents an hour. 

I work, but little can I earn, 

And so the midnight oil I cease to bum. 

These luxuries cost too much. 

And frankly, now I am "in Dutch." 

I've flunked my physics and my trig., 

My English sure "is on the pig." 

And Gordon's Zoo., I must confess, 

Has put me in an awful mess. 

Sid. Haskell's "Ag." is just like mud, 

And how to fertilize a spud. 

About the subject I don't know, . 

As much now as two years ago, 

When in the field I worked all day. 

Hoeing spuds and pitching hay. 

And now my little tale is o'er, 

I'll soon be leaving by the door 

That leads back to the farm and ease, 

And I'll go back to raising peas. 

And Kenney's bills won't bother me, 

No more Old Shylock's duns I'll see. 

On buckwheat and sausage too, 

I'll live as only farmers do. 

But when each year rolls round September, 

Then will I surely this remember: 

No longer I'm in Shylock's clutch, 

No longer am I now in Dutch, 

For when my hard day's work is done, 

I'll count my thousands, one by one.

And it came to pass in 
the days of good king Lefty ■ .-^i --j.^ 

that a great thirst spread thru 
all the land. Woe! to the 
Aggie-ites. Woe! to the Am- 
herst-ites. There was smot- 
iQg and belting of eyebrows 
and a great famine was thru- 
out all the land. Now on the 
24th day of the 5th month a 
servant of the High King set 
himself out to discover a new 
oasis. After wandering for 
many moons and yea even 
many suns, he came to a place 
called the Elmwood. Being 
sore tired he entered. But he 
found too many that came be- 
fore him and he returned sore vexed. The king then did call his wise-guys around 
him and told them of the calamity. And one being wiser than the rest did know a 
land where the peoples did labor on paper. The king entrusted this wise one with 
59 eggshells of the Royal Exchequer to go in search of this wonderful land. The 
wise-guy went and stayed three days and even three nights in this new place. 
The king was sore worried at this delay, but on the evening of the third day the 
wise one retumeth and spake in awed "tones of this great land. The king did go 
then himself and returned on the 5th night. Then the people did know that the 
land of plenty had been found and great was the rejoicing thni-out all the land.

Smashing the Smith line and racing around the Smith ends, the Wellesley war- 
riors sent the Northampton team down to defeat on Smith field Saturday by a 
score of 1-t-O, etc. 

The Wellesley captain won the toss a^id chose the north goal with the sun at 
her back. Smith ran the ball back to her o^vn 40 yard line. Here a fumble took 
place and the Boston team by terrific line plunging carried the ball over for the 
initial tally. Capt. Livermore kicked the goal. The second touch-down came in 
the third period as the result of a series of long end runs and a lateral pass. The 
goal was kicked — again. 

Tea was served at Rahar's to the visitors after the game.

Poor Cuthbert decided to end it all. Lor had trun him o'er. Picking out a 
quiet spot on a Lynn ferryboat he shed his fuzzy vest and Walk Over "hoofs" 
(not an add). Surveying the briny for a soft resting place, he prepared for his 
last "annual". Just then who should appear but Terresa, the Herring King's 
daughter. She lamped the H2O in his soulfull globes and divining his sad thoughts, 
offered him three Packards and a Ford tender to reconsider and be her'n. Cuth- 
bert told her to call at his office for the final answer. The following Monday they 
bought a little delicatessan in Chelsea and lived happily ever after. 


Mv Cot at assie 

My cot over there in the comer, 
To this room is a meager adomer, 

With dimensions only six by three, 
Some people can not really see 

How you're of any use to me. 

Thy springs are stretched, 

Thy bars are bent , 
Thy castors all are lost: 

Yet still withstand the rack and 
Of flopping down without remorse. 

Hash House 

When I've studied long and late, 
On finals or on Wordsworth's lore. 

With thee I can relax complete — 
Thou carest not how much I snore. 

No four-post high-bed tempts me now- 
In your old pillow, I sink my prow. 

You good old bed, you ne'er complain 

If I till ten in bed remain. 
Were other pleasures gone from me, 

I would not care a mite — 
I'd only ask beseechingly 

To roll up in thy blankets tight.

We are always glad to hear from the alumni, especially the younger ones, and 
to know that they are getting along in their efforts to "Boost Old Aggie". At 
the same time, we are of the private opinion that this was in the wrong stall, when 
it appeared in our letter box.

Jf irst 3fmpre£iSiion!g of a jFres!f)man asi 
(§leaneb from a l.o£it iSote=pook: 

' ' Dear ? : 

' ' Great life. First of all, I must tell you about the hazing. We have to jump 
over all the numerals, salute Profs, and Seniors, enforced by Sophs, and believe 
me they are wise. This noon I went swimming, but I didn't enjoy it because I 
had -a headache, something very unusual, I think it was the food at the "hash" 
house, but I'm feeling better to-night. It is about 90 in the shade and varsity 
football team is playing, and believe me they are sore. I would have written be- 
fore, but I put your address amongst my stationery and put that in my trunk 
which came a day late. But please excuse me. Will you? The scenery is beau- 
tiful and I just love it. 

"Now, Helen, my mail will be 0. K. because I spoke to my landlady and she 
said she would look after it. Our freshman class is very large, about 220 students. 
To-night we are going to have a secret rope-pulling practice, after dark, supposed 
to be unknown to the sophs. I am not going to play football, but I am going to 
play baseball in a series against the sophs. My room-mate is a peach of a fellow, 
very quiet, studious, and seems to be very pleasant. My room is very pleasant 
also 3 large windows and 2 large beds. 

' ' I don't like to talk about your principles, but really and truly think they are 
0. K. I am going to adopt the same principles, because I think I ought to for 
your sake or because you are observing them. Don't you believe it a good idea? 
My mother thanks you very much for remembering her, she is all broke up, es- 
pecially now that both Carl and I have gone. Last night Karl and I played at 
our house and had a very pleasant evening. 

"Now, Helen, dear, and I mean it, suppose I wait for my regular Wed. mail 
written by you, and I will receive it about Sat. A. M. and answer it Sat. P. M., 
late. Will that be all write? It is getting time to beat it because the sophs are 
gathering for supper, I am writing this letter in a summer house near the dining 
hall. Give my regards to the girls, please, goodbye. 

' ' Yours most sincerely, 



We're all in the dumps, 

For Billy is trumps, 
The results are on the Dean's 
board ! 
The sophs, are bit. 
The frosh in a fit, 
For Bilty, the Czar, is a lord. 




It was a moonlight night 

' ' On the 18th. of April in 75, 
Scarcely a man is now alive." 

The telephone rang. Leisurely laying down his copy of "Snappy Stories", 
Paul Revere strolled towards it, blinked, scratched his head, and stopped. 

"Oh, the devil! If that's for me, it will ring again". He continued reading 
— "The girl was now absolutely- at loss. Her pink chiffon, trimmed with filly de 
poo poo, was all wine stained, and really her chapeau was a mess. No, the Follies 
of 1775 were out of the question for that night and — " 

The bell rang again. This time, Paul slammed down the book with an angry 
exclamation. In one stride, he gained the phone: 

"Hello! What the h — 1 do you want?" 

"Hello! Hello! Hello! Is this Revere's house? " 

"Yes, what do you want?" 

' ' Hello ! Is this Boston 6665-M ?" 

"No. That's my motor-cycle license." 

"Hello! Is this Paul Revere?" 

"Yes, what do you want?" 

"Wait a minute, till I get a better connection." A pause. 

"Hello, hello! Is this you Paul?" 

"Yes, who is this?" 

"This is John Adams talking." 

"Hello, John, how are you?" 

"Pretty good. How's yourself, Paul?" 

"None better. What's the odds on Harvard to-morrow?" 

"I don't know, but I understand Mahan's in again." 

' 'Say, John, didn't I see you out with one of the Hancock girls to-day?" 

"Yes. Why?" 

"Oh, nothing. Pretty kippy dame, John, you old spooler." 

' ' Never mind, I saw you crawling along Revere Beach with a pretty smooth 
dame yourself. Whence the damsel ?" 

"Oh, that was one of the nurses from the British Hospital ship. Pretty wise, 
John, says she's been to England." 

"Say, Paul, are you going to the game to-morrow?" 

"Sure. Stop in on your way by. Are you going to take the State Hmousine, 
or one of those jitneys?" 

' ' I lent the limousine to Lord Howe to reconnoiter in and he found every 
crystal palace from Dorchester to Lynn, so I guess I'll walk. Oh, by the way, 
Paul, that makes me think. I got pretty good dope on the British. They are 


all going out to Lexington to a dance to-night. Perhaps you'd better spread the 
alarm before all the girls are taken." 
"Good idea, John, I'll do that." 
"All right, don't forget. See you tomorrow." 
' ' Sure . Good night . ' ' 

They hang up. Paul quickly grabs his receiver from the hook again; 
"Hello, Nellie. You on the board again to-night?" 
"Sure." (Crunch, crunch — gummy sounds). "This you, Paul?" 
"Yes, this is Paul. What are you doing tomorrow night?" 
"What do you want, Paul — dear?" (Persuasive tone) 
"What do you say to a little steak all alone at the Atlantic House?" 
"Paul, you're a dear, I'll wear my new suit." (To clinch the argument). 
"Good night, Paul." 

' ' Good night, Nell. ' ' (Smack) 
(Over the phone — smack !) 

Paul sits down, holds his head in his hand for awhile, then steps to the call 
bell. Presently a servant enters. Paul arises and hands him a slip of paper. 

"James, will you have three thousand of these printed up and distributed 
thru Greater Boston?" 

"Going to run for Congress again, Mr. Revere, sir?" 
"None of your business, James, get out." 
The circulars were distributed and greatly resembled this: 
Minute Men to Arms 
The British threaten to take all the girls of Lexington and Con- 
cord tomorrow night for their dance at Odd Fellows' Hall. To 
prevent such a catastrophe, all girls must be engaged for said 
evening, or their whereabouts ascertained. Waste no time. 
America expects every man to do his duty. 

(Signed) The Vigilance Committee. 

Per P. Revere, Sec. 
And so the British were foiled. 

In the meantime, Paul, after another cigarette and another whiskey and soda, 
finished his story and sought the downy white at an earlier hour than he had for 
many a week. 

' ' And the people will wake and listen to hear 

The midnight message of Paul Revere."

In the fulfilment of its mission the College undertakes the work of Investigation, Resi- 
dent Instruction and Extension Service. 

Invsstigation follows three distinct lines: (1) scientific research, through which are 
discovered new laws governing the growth of plants and animals, (2) experimentation, which 
seeks to ascertain the best methods of applying science to practice , and (3) the agricultural 
survev or inventory of agricultural conditions and possibilities. 

The purpose of Instruction given to resident students is to prepare them for the agri- 
cultural vocations and also to train them in the principles of good citizenship. Students 
pursuing the regular four years' course may specialize in any of the following named depart- 
ments : 

Agriculture Landscape Gardening 

Agronomy Pomology 

Animal Husbandry Agricultural Chemistry 

Dairying Economic Entomology

Floriculture Microbiology 

Forestry Agricultural Education 

Rural Social Science Rural Journalism 

Undergraduate courses are also offered in a large number of departments the work of 
which is not arranged as a "major."

chemistry, entomology, horticulture, mathematics, microbiology, veterinary' science, zoolog\', 
and rural social science.
