HE struggles, the conquests, the 
])leasures, the friendships and the in- 
spirations of four years spent at 
"Aggie" form the mould from which 
every one of her loyal sons spring 
forth. That the "Aggie Man" may 
never forget to love and cherish the Alma Mater who 
has so faithfully shaped his destiny is the task to which 
the editors humbly dedicate their efforts in prepara- 
tion of this volume.

WHEN it became evident to tiie administration that the department of 
chemistry needed further development, a search was made to find a man 
who had received a broad training in the science and who, at the same time, was 
able to use his chemical knowledge in ways most helpful to agriculture. 

After considerable inquiry, Joseph S. Chamberlain, who was at the time 
studying in Berlin, Germany, was chosen and he began his work at M. A. C. in 
the autumn of 1909. 

Who is this man Chamberlain, where did he grow uj) and receive both his 
early and advanced training? What has he accomplished and why is the class of 
192.5 dedicating this volume to him? These are some of the questions that 
naturally will be asked and to which answers are sought. 

It can be said with truth that his was a goodly heritage. His grandfather, a 
farmer in Sharon, Connecticut, went to Ohio when William I. Chamberlain, the 
father of Professor Chamberlain, was four years of age. The father of Joseph 
was a graduate of Western Reserve College and while spending riiost of his life 
in practical farming, occupied several public positions of importance. Thus, from 
1881 to 1887 he was Secretary of Agriculture for Ohio and from 1887 until 1890, 
president of the Iowa Agricultural College. Later he became editor of the 
Ohio Farmer as well as the National Stockman and at the time of his death was 
still serving in the staff of the former publication. 

Into such an environment Joseph S. Chamberlain was born in 1870 at 
Hudson, Ohio. He had the usual experiences of most farmers' boys growing up 
on a middle western farm. He attended the public schools in Hudson and was 
graduated from the high school at Columbus where the family resided while the 
father was Secretary of Agriculture. Professor Chamberlain entered the Iowa 
Agricultural College and was graduated in 1890 with the degree of B.Sc, taking 
the regular course cjuite similar to the one given at M. A. C. at that time. He 
occupied a position of graduate assistant at his alma mater for two years after the 
completion of his undergraduate course and received the degree of M.Sc. in 1892. 
He then decided to go back onto the farm and become a real dirt farmer and he 
followed this decision with two years of farm practice. The longing, however, for 
a continuation of educational work got the better of him and in 1894 we see him 
back at his alma mater as assistant in chemistry, a position which he held until 
1897. The long vacations at Iowa were then in winter and he took advantage of 
them by studying chemistry at Johns Hopkins University. He finally severed 
his connections with Iowa and continued to pursue his studies intensively at 
Hopkins, receiving a scholarship in 1897-98 and a fellowship in the following year, 
working particularly witii Professors Ira Remsen and H. N. Morse. 

In 1889 he received the degree of Ph.D. for an original investigation in 
organic chemistry entitled "A Fnrther Study of Two of the Products of the 
Transformation of Parasulfamine Benzoic Acid When Heated to iiO° C". From 
September, 1899 till January, 1901 he was instructor in chemistry at Oberlin and 
for the balance of the academic year 1901, he acted as research assistant to 
Professor Renisen at Johns Hopkins. During tlje two summer vacations while 
connected with Oberlin, he worked in the laboratory of the noted agricultural 
chemist, W. O. Atwater at Middletown, Connecticut. In the summer of 1901 
we find him permanently employed at the Bureau of Chemistry in Washington 
and he served continually until November, 1908 when he received leave of absence 
to study in Germany. He went to Berlin and entered the laboratory of the noted 
physiological chemist, Emil Abderhalden. While abroad he received the call from 
Amherst to take the newly created position of associate professor of organic and 
agricultural chemistry and began his duties in September, 1909. Later he was 
made full professor and at the present time has general supervision of the academic 
department of chemistry. 

He made a number of contributions to chemistry in its relation to agriculture 
prior to his coming to this college among which may be mentioned: "Determina- 
tions of Gliadin and Glutenin in Flour by the Fleurent Magnet Method", Bureau 
of Chemistry, Bulletin 81; "Investigations on the Properties of Wheat Proteins", 
Jour. Am. Chem. Soc, 1906; "A Study of the Variations in the Course of the 
Nitrogen, Sulfate and Phosphate Excretion, as Observed in Short Periods Follow- 
ing a Small Increase in the Protein Ingested", Journal of American Physiology, 
1904 (with P. B. Hawk); "The Commercial Status of Durum Wheat", Carleton 
and Chamberlain, Bulletin 70, Bureau of Plant Industry; "Feeding Value of 
Cereals as Calculated from Chemical Analysis", United States Department of 
Agriculture, Bulletin IW, the latter being made when he was chief of the Cattle 
Food and Grain Laboratory. 

In spite of the many demands upon him since coming to M. A. C, he has 
found time to prepare two text books in chemistry entitled "Organic Agricultural 
Chemistry", published by the Macmillan Company, and a more comprehensive 
work under the title of "Organic Chemistry", put out by P. Blakiston's Son & 

As an illustration of his interest in science and of his reputation in his cho.sen 
field of chemistry, it may be mentioned that he is one of the councillors of the 
American Chemical Societ.y and for two years was chairman of the Connecticut 
Valle.y Section. He is also a fellow in the American Association for the Advance- 
ment of Science and for several years was a member of the Washington Academy 
of Science. 

Professor Chamberlain has devoted him.self, heart and soul, to the welfare of 
Old Aggie. He has served on several faculty committees and for a long period 


has lieen a member of the committee on course of study. He has sliown especial 
interest in the religious life of the institution and in promoting the interests of the 
college Y. M. C. A., acting as a member of the Advisory Board of Interchurch 
Student Secretaries. He has always shown a deep interest in the success of all 
students with whom he has come in contact, offering them friendly advice and 
encouragement, and with Mrs. Chamberlain, frequently entertaining them at his 
home. He has cooperated with the students of the graduate school and been a 
regular attendant at their scientific meeting's. 

Professor Chamberlain has specialized jjarticularly in the chemistry of 
organic compounds. He is preeminently a teacher and is whole-heartedly devoted 
to his work. When not in the class room or engaged in executive work, one is 
likely to find him in the laboratory engaged with his students. It is his desire to 
be in personal touch with each man, find out his difficulties and help him to a more 
complete understanding of his subject. 

Any student who really wants an education and whose desire is to familiarize 
himself with the science of chemistry and its application, will find in this man a 
genuine helper, teacher and loyal friend.

So reads the inscription, cut in stone, over the entrance to the latest of the 
many fine l)uildings on our campus. 

This splendid laboratory stands as a lasting tribute, of honor, respect and 
love, to the first Professor of Chemistry in the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College and, in spirit, is the fulfillment of the dreams of the Department of 
Chemistry which he founded. The College is proud to thus recognize his .service 
to the institution and to the Commonwealth and all who knew him or knew of 
him; his students, his friends, his associates and his successors, are gratified that 
such a monument should be raised to his memory. 

Those who were his students or who knew him while he walked about this 
campus and town need no biography to tell of his life and work; but those of this 
later day who have watched the new laboratory grow and those in after years wlio 
read his name above the door they enter may pause to ask: 

Why the name and who the man? To let answer be made that; 
Charles Anthony Goessmann 

was the first Professor of Chemistry in this college and the first Director and 
Chemist of the Massachusetts Agricultural Experiment Station. He was a 
native of Germany, a pupil of the great Woehler, and received his degree of Doctor 
of Philosophy from the University of Gottingen in 185^2. In 18.57 he came lo the 
United States, and for ten years was chemist for sugar and salt industries in this 

In Gottingen he was a fellow student with William S. Clark and when the 
latter became President of this college, Goessmann was invited to become its 
first Professor of Chemistry, in which position he began his work for the 
college in 1868. From that day until his retirement in 1907 the man Goessmann 
was a strong power in the young and growing college, and, for all time, the 
name of Goessmann will be a yet stronger influence in the institution which he 
heljjed to start. 

As a teacher he was honored and loved by his pupils, and many of those whom 
he taught and inspired continued their studies beyond the walls of their Alma 
Mater, in universities at home or abroad, and devoted their lives, as he did his, 
to the promotion of Chenii.stry in its relation to Agriculture. The greatest work 
a teacher can do is that which he does in instructing and influencing those whom 
he teaches to use their lives in service and to carry on the work they share in 
common. Thus in the lives and work of the chemists he has inspired is the 
greatest honor which Professor Goessmann earned. 

While he taught others to work he himself was busy with investigations, and 
the contributions which he made to chemical literature were very many and dealt 


with many of tlie problems of chemistry as related to agriculture. The exact 
number of such articles is unimportant, and their names would mean little in 
this connection for the fact to emphasize is, simply, that both as teacher and as 
chemist he worked with all his talents and all his strength to promote the best 
interests of his pupils, his science, his college, his commonwealth, his community. 
In these ways and with these results he worked here at M. A. C This is the man 
whom the college delighteth to honor, and the man whom all future teachers, 
chemists and students, as they enter the portals of this new laboratory, will 
likewise honor. May they all, in the years to come, realize their privilege and 
their responsibility. 

With the name of Goessmann, cut likewise in stone, are the names of seven 
other chemists, together signifying the devotion of the building to the science of 

WOEHLER, the beloved teacher of Goessmann and one of the most loved 
and one of the greatest of chemistry teachers and investigators. 

LIEBIG, the Father of Agricultural Chemistry and the one who first sug- 
gested the use of chemical fertilizers. He was also the first to introduce laboratory 
instruction as a part of university teaching of chemistry, and under him the first 
student laboratory of chemistry was built. 

BOUSSINGAULT, the greatest of the early French agricultural chemists, and 
the one to first conduct field experiments in connection with the chemistry of 

LAWES-GILBERT. The names of these two men, the former Agriculturist 
and the latter Chemist, will ever be associated with the establishment of the 
greatest of agricultural experiment stations at Rothamsted, England, and with the 
investigation of some of the great problems of agricultural chemistry such as the 
fixation of atmospheric nitrogen by plants. 

JOHNSON. Samuel W. Johnson is known the world over by his tw^o books, 
"How Crops Grow" and "How Crops Feed" which were pioneer books on agricul- 
tural chemistry and exerted a tremendous influence for scientific agriculture in 
this country. He was the first American chemist to suggest the chemical control 
of commercial fertilizers, and was the first Chemist and Director of the Connecti- 
cut Experiment Station at New Haven. 

HILGARD. An American chemist of German parentage and university 
training, whose work on soils, mostly at the California Experiment Station, 
exerted a lasting influence on the work in American Experiment Stations. 

Thus the names which help to adorn our new laboratory are not simply 
architectural ornaments, but signify the true purpose to which the building is to 
be devoted, and typify the spirit of true science in the service of agriculture as 
the spirit in which the work in chemistry in this Agricultural College will always 


be carried on. It is interesting to note that of these men three were Americans, 
two Germans, two English and one French. 

A few words about the plan of the building. Unlike the old laboratory 
which underwent a spectacular chemical reaction, September 6, 192''2, the new 
laboratory has been planned for the definite purpose to which it is to be devoted, 
viz., to the teaching of chemistry, and the investigation of problems in the chemis- 
try of agriculture. The general plan may be described in units of the east and 
west wings and the main central portion. Each floor of each wing, with adjoining 
small rooms in the central part is devoted to work of a related character. The 
main auditorium with 165 seats is in the center rear, and in the west wing base- 
ment are two 75 seat lecture rooms opening directly outside and available for 
general classes as well as for those in chemistry. The basement, so-called, is no 
basement in fact but is as fully used and as light and roomy as any other part of 
the building. The east wing, basement, holds two large laboratories, one for the 
freshman classes and the other for sophomores in qualitative analysis. The east 
wing, main floor, accommodates, in two large laboratories, the work in organic and 
physiological chemistry. The west wing on the same floor consists of two labora- 
tories for physical chemistry, while above it on the third floor are the laboratories 
of analytical chemistry. On this floor in the east wing is the home of the research 
laboratories of the Experiment Station. The library suite of main room, Goess- 
mann Memorial Alcove and seminar room, occupies the third floor, center, rear. 
The remaining small rooms in the central part are for offices, research rooms and 
supply rooms.

MEN of foresight and vision were those who, sixty years back, founded the 
agricultural colleges. It was a new and untried field. There was no body 
of organized agricultural knowledge on which to base instruction. There were 
no standards of perfection in agricultural teachings. The e.xperiment stations 
had not been brought into existence. The teachers of agriculture in the early 
days of these colleges were required almost to "make bricks without straw", and 
to this general rule M. A. C. was no exception. Yet the definition of service 
expected from these new institutions was sound. It was formulated in a single 
sentence : 

"Without excluding other scientific and classical studies, 
and including military tactics, to teach such branches of 
learning as are related to agriculture and mechanic arts in such 
manner as the legislatures of the states may respectively 
prescribe, in order to promote the liberal and practical educa- 
tion of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and profes- 
sions of life." 
To this ideal the Trustees of the College have always held true. The education 
given at M. A. C. has prepared for life service as well as for specific vocations. 
At the very beginning, however, there was no knowledge of the type of men which 
the College would attract, nor yet of the fields of service which these men would 
seek. The alumni of the earlier classes were trail blazers. In the path outlined 
by them have gone most of the graduates of the College. 

Many men went into practical agriculture. Clark '72 was one of the few 
men of his generation who appreciated the possibilities in commercial orcharding 
in New England, and who stuck through many recurring periods of discouragment, 
to win finally a notable success. Following him were such men as Howe "81, 
Richardson '87, Howard '92, Taylor '92, in as many different farming activities. 
The final results of offering to men who go back to the farm the benefits of an 
agricultural education are shown by the fact that men of this stamp are now 
valued in every community, whereas formerly they were viewed with suspicion. 
To the tremendous field of agricultural business many of the earlier alumni 
were attracted. Inspired by the teachings of Goessmann in chemistry and 
Stockbridge in agriculture, Bowker '71 developed the commercial possibilities in 
the manufacture and sale of chemical fertilizers. The first years were hard, the 
jjroduct was new, untried, mysterious and viewed with suspicion. State chemical 
control had not been developed, and honest men were at a disadvantage in 
competition with those having no scruples. At the time of his death, however, 
Mr. Bowker was the dean of the American fertilizer industry, known far and wide 
for the courage and forcefulness with which he pressed his views and the faith 
which he had in the service of his business. Today alumni lists show that many 
graduates of Old Aggie have sought service in this same field. Likewise Aggie 


men may l)e found in many other branches of agricultural industry: notably in 
the manufacture and merchandising of insecticides and fungicides, in the commer- 
cial feed industry, and to a more limited extent in the manufacture and sale of 
farm ecjuipment. 

The College, however, through the type of education which it gave, was 
destined to give even broader service. On it fell the duty of preparing scores of 
teachers, whose function was to help develop other colleges and spread throughout 
the country the doctrine of better farming based upon a better, knowledge of real 
science. The spectacular service, and in many ways a far reaching service, 
was the sending of a number of graduates of the College to Japan to found the 
Sapporo Agricultural College. A party of three left this country on the second of 
March, 1877, the leader President Clark, on leave of ab.sence from M. A. C, and 
with him Wheeler '71 to serve as Professor of Mathematics and Civil Engineering, 
and Penhallow '7,S to serve as Professor of Botany and Chemistry. About half a 
year later came Brooks '75 to serve as Professor of Agriculture, and in 1878 
Cntter '72 in Physiology and Comparative Anatomy and Peabody, a non-graduate 
of the class of '75, in Engineering. Some years later Brigham '78 and Stockbridge 
'78 were added to the faculty. 

The romance of this service appeals to the imagination. Even more so, 
however, does the later service of these men who ventured forth from M. A. C. into 
untrodden fields. The service of the leader of the expedition. President Clark, is 
too well known to require further description. Wheeler for many years has been 
a valued and most efficient Trustee of the College. Dr. Penhallow entered the 
service of McGill University in Canada, and at the time of his death was con- 
sidered to be one of the foremost of American botanists. Dr. Cutter was one of 
the first alumni to take an advanced degree in medicine, in which profession he 
made a distinct success. Dr. Brooks was called back to his Alma Mater to serve 
for years as Professor of Agriculture, was at two different times Acting President 
of the College, and later Director of the Experiment Station. Dr. Stockbridge 
made a name for himself in agricultural journalism. Dr. Brigham was for many 
years a Trustee of the College. Through the influence of these men, many 
Japanese boys came to Aggie for their college education. One of these, a member 
of the class of '88, Viscount Mishima, was at the time of his death president of the 
Bank of Japan — a bank which in Japan is equivalent in its power and influence 
to the Bank of England in the British Empire. Viscount Mishima has been the 
greatest financial figure of the Aggie alumni body. 

The group of men who saw service in Japan included men who made names 
for themselves in science, in agricultural education, in general education, in 
medicine, in engineering, in agriculture. Following in the paths which they 
blazed are many other men of equally distinguished service. In the field of 
education, the names of Stone 'Si, Howe '78, Plumb '82, typify the service of 
tlie institution. In medicine Dr. Cutter has been followed by scores of other 


men who made use of the broad education given at M. A. C. as a basis for ad- 
vanced work in medicine, — cjuite recently by Dr. J. E. Goldthwaite "8.5, remem- 
bered with appreciation by those cognizant of his great work with the A. E. F. 
In agricultural journalism Myrick 'Si has been an outstanding figure. In 
chemistry Wellington, I.indsey, Wheeler are known in all parts of the country. 
In research administrative work the service of Allen '85 is without parallel. 
The work done over a period of many years by Harwood '75 with the Dairy 
Bureau of the Massachusetts State Department of Agriculture has been out- 
.standing; while in an entirely different field, that of landscape architecture, 
Parker '76 was probably the first of numbers of Aggie men who have given a good 
account of their earlier training. Maynard "72 was among the leaders in our 
earlier horticultural work. 

Two other members of the earlier classes. Holmes 'li and Webb '73, attained 
distinction as jurists. Rev. Henry Hague "75 capitalized his college training in a 
far different way, took advanced .study, prepared himself for the Christian minis- 
try, and had a long and successful pastorate in the city of Worce.ster. 

Such were the paths marked out for alumni of succeeding years by the gradu- 
ates of the earlier classes. Such has been and is the service of the institution. 
Impossible is it to measure in terms of money the vaJTie of this .service to the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

ONE happy September afternoon in 1920, one hundred thirty slightly be- 
wildered boys and girls met together for the first time at M. A. C. as the 
class of '24. Ahead of us lay an unknown mountain, and we started gladly up 
the trail with a spirit of adventure, a desire to meet difficulties, to face new tasks, 
to lay aside tradition and memories of old achievements, and to scale the heights 
to a fresh vision. 

Day by day on the trail we have met teachers and friends. Great men have 
spoken to us from books. From the inspiration of their fellowship has come the 
desire to understand and love humanity, to build our ideals into the structure of 
the world, and to feel in our souls the beauty and truth of a noble human life. 
Some of us have wandered from the main road to visit shrines in secluded by- 
paths. We have come to feel the joy of mingling with our comrades. What a 
wealth of friendships has surrounded us! Of how many lives have we been a part 
in these four years! 

The time draws on when we must say farewell. Our pilgrimage divides into 
many smaller pilgrimages. The trail leads upward still, but it has a multitude of 
branches. Each one chooses his own pathway and continues on, stronger, hap- 
pier, more serviceable, for having shared in the common life of the Alma Mater. 

We look back to see the stream of new students who are taking our places. 
We are glad they are going to follow us, and we want them to build and improve 
the trail for those who are to come after. We hope that they will set new stand- 
ards of attainment in every department, and that they will protect and encourage 
the spirit of liberalism which is growing in our college. 

We look ahead and are glad that there will be reunions when we can talk of 
years we spent together. In our hearts is a keen new realization of the meaning 
of the lines which we have so often sung : 
■'Aggie, my Aggie 
My heart yearns for thee, — "

iligtorp of tlje Cla^s; of 1925 

HEAR ye one — hear ye all — a blast from the lists of 192.5! A survey of the 
ranks reveals the stamp of hard struggle, which nurtured into being a grim- 
ness and a well tempered virility capable of withstanding all odds. 

Retrospect brings forth visions of a freshman year in which Fate seemed to 
hold us in the dust of defeat at her feet. Class victories were rare, yet the seed of 
hope was born. The freshman football and baseball teams were the fear of the 
countryside and the pride of "Aggie". The basketball team won the interclass 
championship. It was in the spring of the freshman year that '25 completed a 
master stroke of prowess. The sophomores had not expected the supposedly 
fearful freshmen to turn out on the eve of the appointed date for incinderating 
freshman hats. But lo — a mighty blaze issued triumphantly forth from the 
brow of the campus slope back of Wilder Hall, while all the sophomores were snug 
in their cots! 

The sophomore year added momentum to the already increasing forces. 
The six-man rope pull was easily won from the best the incoming freshman had to 
offer. A freshman football team, feted and trained to the limit, had to exert its 
utmost powers to keep from being scored on. The basketball team again cap- 
tured the interclass championship. A freshman baseball team suffered a 5-3 
defeat. Hat burning day in the spring found the freshman class in fear and 
tremble of '25. But kindness graced the acts of the sophomores. Three score 
freshman bonnets were saved from oxidation for safe keeping in the hands of '25. 
What few bonnets were retained by '26 were carefully burned considerably beyond 
the campus limits. 

The intellectual progress of the class has shown a steady evolution. The 
truth of Darwin's theories have been clearly demonstrated. Only those of highest 
mental equipment remain in a junior class of what was once a freshman class of 
more than twice the number. The major choices of the members of the present 
'25 show an unusual enrollment in the annals of science, proving a high standard 
of mental capacity.

Here is something that '24 lost and '25 gained. After entering 
with '24 he saw his mistake and decided to wait. Here we have 
the one and only "Kensington Kid". We have been told that 
Kensington is in close proximity to Washington, D. C. If that is 
the case it may be easily seen how "Brad" during his younger 
years "osmosed" qualities from the Capitol's law makers. He is 
always ready to state his opinion on any matter and we also find 
him spending many hours studying the beauties of nature. Some 
day we may find "Brad" among the noted naturalists, lovers of 
birds, flowers, and trees.

This long somewhat attenuated, easy-going Adonis with the 
characteristic Weymouth drawl is a well known figure in the 
Landscape Department and may be seen any day in the wild 
exodus of the hash-slinging Elite from our dining hall accompanied 
by his satellite and complementing Gold-Dust twin "Lewie " 

A seeming ardent exponant of bachelorhood, "Dug" is a 
photographer of some note and he exposes at times some very 
incriminating evidence — like a true sailor he has a girl in every 
hotel along the Atlantic seaboard. 



Bradford, Mass. Haverhill High School 

1901; Farm Management; Q. T. V. 

"Frankie" entered as a sophomore transfering from the U. of 
Maine. We don't know why he left Orono, let alone Bradford, 
but is has been said he heard that the military students down here 
drill on horseback and not on foot. He claims to have done 
enough footwork at the girls' finishing school, Bradford Academy. 
This year Frankie has confined his activities to the "\orth End" 
of the campus during the evening hours. He has no mean 
ability as a rider of U. S. Cavalry horses. As a French student 
his claims are doubtful. He has taken several courses in French 
altho all his efforts are concentrated on the same one.

Did you ever wonder what made Helen choose for her Alma 
Mater M. A. C. instead of Mt. Holyoke, as she had originally 
planned? It's a secret — but this is the reason. Helen knew that 
at M. A. C. there were good Floriculture courses and she had an 
ambition — to make a rock garden of the Holyoke Range. There- 
fore she came to Aggie and is taking several Floriculture courses. 
In chapel you always have to look twice to see Helen, for she is 
very seldom talking. You can be sure that she is present, how- 
ever, for not even the coldest and stormiest of winter weather 
can keep her from traveling over the miles between Belchertown 
road and campus to attend her classes.

.^fter the United States got through with the mixup on the 
other side of the pond, Binner felt the call of the West and started 
to pursue the art of floriculture in the state college of Montana. 
He soon discovered that he could not make the prairies bloom like 
the rose, so he plucked the sweetest flower there was and brought 
her back to our campus. If the interest he puts into his major 
is an.y indication of his future success, Boston will never need to 
fear for its flower supply. 


Framingham, Mass. Framingham High School

"Short.y" we call him for short, but he goes by the moniker of 

"Shorty" wanted to major in Agronomy but his first course in 
that subject turned him from a landscraper to a landscaper. 

He hails from the wilds of Framingham, the home of the 
Framingham Normal School and many pretty women. "Shorty" 
believes in patronizing the home town. All his attention is not 
towards figures, real or artificial, however, for he is also a fast 
man on the track. "Shorty" aspires to be a baseball player and 
while you wouldn't think so, it is hard to put one over on him

Although "Hank" was rather put out, at first, by the evolu- 

tionistic attitude expressed in some of his Freshman courses, he 

became inured to it. and even asked for more as evinced by his 

study of plant life from alpha to omega; he has accepted 

evolution, with reservations. 

He is always cheerful, and brightens the world by his presence. 

He believes that it is better to have loved and lost than never to 

have loved at all.

Carl came into our midst seemingly a much sophisticated youth 
with a blase air from the wilds of Newburyport. Since the first 
he has hidden his interests in many campus activities behind a 
mask of quiet and aloofness which has seldom been torn aside. 
Carl has not been idle, winning numerals in fall track and class 
basketball. Then it was in his freshman year that he won his 
"M" in track and baseball. In the latter he is one of our best 
men. Strange as it may sound he was enough of a social light to 
be elected a member of the Soph-Senior Hop and Prora Com- 
mittees. Smith too commands quite regular attendance.

Rita comes from Fall River — don't hold it against her. Nearly 
as soon as she landed on campus, she was elected class secretary — 
an office which has been hers almost every term since then. Rita 
puts heart and soul into everything she undertakes, whether it is 
pruning trees or baking pies in R. H. L. She is always good- 
natured; she can smile even in the face of a Physics quiz (or any 
similar strain on the disposition). A perfect attendance record for 
all dances, from Victrola parties to Proms, from the beginning of 
her Freshman year is hers. 

To her class she has always been staunchly loyal; woe to the 
person she hears say a word against it! At all interclass contests 
during her Freshman and Sophomore years, she spent most of her 
time wishing she were a boy and could "help win for '2.)".

A graduate of Essex Aggie and yet he comes to M. A. C. tn 
study. Why.' Future career as a County Agent so therefore his 
knowledge must be well sorted and arranged for future use of 
backyard farmers. As for debating, did you ever argue with 
Joe!^ Well you don't stand a chance as he has proofs, right or 
wrong. "Ma" Goodwin recognized this feature of Joe's and made 
him Head Waiter. Now we hear, "Something wrong? See the 
Head Waiter, please", and then Joe will prove to you that the 
eggs are fresh. Joe also made quite a name for himself among the 
females his freshman year. He went to church to look over the 
girls in the choir.

The lofty brow, the far-off look, the nervous manner, the 
lengthy pseudopodial extremities and the somewhat attenuated 
morphology give an air of intensive scholarship to this classmate 
of ours. To us he is a witty, good-natured, learned companion, 
at times overcome by the exuberance of his verbosity — a good 
scout for all of his 9,5% average. Though George is a busy man — 
anyone can see that by the way he lopes around the campus- — he 
manages to find time to "russal" around doing work coincident 
with several non-athletic activities, besides .studying and slinging 
hash three hours a day.

What's the use of worrying — it never was worth while! This 
might well be the slogan of this fair haired boy. The word 
"blues" is not in his vocabulary. He doesn't like to throw 
away his time in studying, yet majoring in Aggie Ec. forces his 
occasional indulgence. Often in the evening he disappears and 
it is rumored that he is trying his clear tenor voice on some 
river maid. Late has many lasting friends because of his happy 
smile and he likes nothing better than a practical joke — when it 
is not on him.

In a sequestered corner of Berkshire County there may be 
found (after enough diligent search) the town of Richmond, a 
place unheard of until it gave to the world this voluble, ambitious 
son of the soil. With a burning ambition to achieve, our hero 
descended upon the Aggie campus, where he received a few hard 
but beneficial jolts — one of which was an introduction to the 
Aggie pond via the aerial route at the first pond party of his 
Freshman year. A cheerful sort of gent with pep enough for half 
a dozen jack-rabbits, Cookee may be found participating in any- 
thing from running down "bugs" in the Ent. Lab. to shaking a 
wicked pair of feet at a dance. Bob lives down near Boston now 
and is taking on a real urban polish.

Emil is a little man with quick steps and pensive brow. His 
alertness of both physical and mental action may possibly be due 
to the air of the briny deep that encircles his native city of East 
Boston. At any rate, Emil has been known to solve a problem in 
"trig" and construct a working thought for a theme simultane- 
ously. His nimbleness of finger is not daunted at even the most 
fiery outbursts of Chopin. Emil's pensiveness is usually taken 
as a criterion of his aspirations to do great things. His capacity 
in this line was most admirably demonstrated in his management 
of a domestic complex in the Commencement Show of 1923. 
May the blessing of the gods rest with thee. Einil!

He was only a Veg. Gardener's son, but he knew his peas and 
lettuce, say right now. and he came to Aggie with the class of 1925. 
Silent John has been in several of the mysterious escapades of the 
class. He is a charter member of the O. P. club. He has main- 
tained the puritanical standards which he had at the time of his 
entrance into college — Consequently "Father" John has been the 
counsellor of the class. They say that John makes frequent trips 
to Smith. The girls simply adore the silent youth with his 
cavern-like, suggesting-depth-of-thought eyes, and his Sultanic 
atmosphere. Suffice it to say that John is well-liked and popular.

The mermaids of the rock-bound coast of Marblehead could 
not restrain this dashing young Apollo, for he ventured far and 
wide in his quest for love. 

Along with An. Hus. "Lee" is incorporating military training, 
and he certainly cuts a bold figure when mounted. 

"Lee's" fiery dash hasalso been oft displaced pushing the puck 
on the ice where even the coolness of the air cannot dampen his 
ardor to reach the goal. 

"Abigail Adams" will most bitterly mourn the loss of this faith- 
ful son of hers when he departs this blissful realm. 



Belchertown, Mass. Belchertown High School 

1902; Vegetable Gardening; Track (1). 

The week ends can't roll around fast enough to suit "Dave", for 
almost invariably does he wend his way to Belchertown on 
Fridays. We are inclined to think that these weekly jaunts are 
prompted not so much because of the proximity of his native town 
to Amherst, as it is because he suffers from nostalgia. 

"Dave " is rustically inclined, and when he is not seen sampling 
soil, you may be sure he has taken to the woods in search of 
"bigger game". As class rustic, he merits a good "honorable 

"Dave" is cjuiet and hopeful. — particularly the latter, for his 
most often quoted words are, "Hope so ".

We have in this youth from the city of Benjamin Franklin 
fame a plugger of the first water. Speaking of roll calls, his one 
ambition in life, next to being a successful insurance agent, is to 
be a modern version of Napoleon and in event of his troops being 
licked his thunderous "Hot Dog" would turn defeat into victory. 
DeVito, however, changes his brogans for pumps, boils his shirt, 
and cements his hair every so often and he may be seen over in 
Hamp where he is rated as a passable exponent of the nimble 
toed art.

'Twas a misfortune of the war which gave to the class of 1925 
the dauntless, decomplex, dedecorous, delinquent, dicephalous, 
ducal "Duff". The ideas of the "Profs" were revolutionized by 
the revelations of "Duff" on "How we farmed it down in Palmer". 
Duff is a firm believer in the worship of Morpheus. Absences 
from classes are his open manifestations of this addiction. When 
he is not importuning this god. his beaming face appears on the 
campus. Hard work and his mania for entering into activities 
placed him on the Soph-Senior hop committee and gained him 
the managership of varsity basketball. Duff's main line is 
Entomology. He was associated with bugs in the army. In the 
near future we .shall hear him referred to as the "buggy professor 
of bugs".

"Fritz" first saw the light on St. Patrick's day, and ever since 
then life has been one joke after another. Ever since his entrance 
into the class of '2.5, he has been ever in the midst of its activities. 
Being versatile, he has been prominent in the various athletic 
activities on the campus. His value to the football and basket- 
ball teams has been demonstrated by his hard clean playing. He 
is a card player of note, and has taken the measure of Dr. Cramp- 
ton in many hard fought bridge games. 

Whenever you hear a funny laugh, you can bet "Fritz" is 
around. Although he has been beseiged by the ladies, none 
have got him in their grasp, in fact "Fritz " is a charter member 
of the O. P. Club. He is very strong for science, when applied to 
athletics, and we feel sure some dav he will make a noted scientist. 



North Amherst Phillips Exeter Academy

"Gil" is a veteran of two wars and one of the distinguished 
men in the class. He is, as well, a leading citizen of Slab City. 
The only thing we are afraid of is the vile pipe that followed him 
from France, much to our discomfort. "Gil" is apt to turn 
into a zoological specimen any day, because of his associations 
in the zoo. lab. If one desires to see the "old gentleman " at any 
time day or night, he should look in Fernald Hall. "Gil" is 
preparing to spray some poor unfortunates with his zoological 
learning after he graduates. We all wish him the best of luck for 
his perseverance.

The rural village of Chester has the distinction of calling itself 
the home town of Hal. even though he does hesitate to admit it. 
"Happy-go-lucky Hal" has no other care in the world than that 
of losing his hair. Our "Agricultural Philosopher" has spent a 
large amount of time trying to solve the world's great problems. 
Hal also would make us think that he is an upholder of Schopen- 
hauer's ideas of women, yet those who know him say that he is 
very different. Ask some of the Co-eds.

In spite of his excess avoirdupois, this rotund individual from 
Bean Town is as graceful as Ted Shawn. To see him wrestle, box, 
or wriggle his way through a football defense is truly a treat, for 
he does these things with the grace of an aesthete and with the 
gusto of an athlete. Sol is majoring in chemistry, and he wears 
a visage that well befits his pursuit, for already he has been 
mistaken for that other well known chemist — Harvey W. 'Wiley. 
Sol manifests enthusiasm in things other than football and 
chemistry. It is not uncommon to observe him perched upon a 
pool table (a la Jeff) trying to get around some vexatious billiard 
situation. Besides being a shark at his intellectual pursuits, he 
is a good-natured side-kick. Strangely enough, his favorite 
literature is "The Married Life of Helen .iiid W^irrcTi ".

Here is a quiet mannered chap if ever one could be found, for 
anger is a thing unknown to him. Champ is naturally studious, 
but being desirous of keeping the profs from discovering it, he has 
been fairly successful in the past. This fair faced Adonis has an 
easy road to the hearts of the fair sex, for he could well be the 
author of a slogan, "Keep that College youth complexion". 
Aside from Bernardston and Amherst, he may be found occasion- 
ally in Fitchburg. "There's a reason."

"Pinkie " is a native of Springfield — that cannot be held against 
him, however. He came to "Aggie " with a firm determination to 
teach the Botany Department all that there was to be taught but 
he has gradually lost his vast supply of knowledge. Soon he will 
leave us with nothing but an enviable record of 90's. 

Like most of us, he has had his venture with Cupid but being the 
better shot escaped and since has entered his name in the Lonely 
Hearts Column hoping to correspond with some nice girl, as one 
in China, whom he will have no chance of meeting. Nevertheless 
■Pinkie " is popular; he may be seen at any game leading the

Springfield, Mass. Springfield Tech. High School 

1904; Entomology; Collegian (1, 2, 3); Kappa Sigma. 
It is generally understood that "Gil" has some fair friend in 
Springfield, and his embarassed pecuniary status, following his 
return from Springfield, is thus readily accounted tor. Having a 
peculiar calling for flivvers and other creeping insects, it is no 
small wonder that our hero majors in entomology. Besides 
being of material aid to his class in producing "Aggie Revues", 
"Gil" is an enterprising newspaper man, — being one of the main- 
stays of that well known publication, "The Collegian". 

Pertinacity, that marked characteristic of Gil's, will win for 
him all he hoped for.

Here we have one who will raise the pride of Glastonbury, for 
Larry has something to do with almost everything here at Aggie. 
Being in the social whirl, it seems as though he would be a 
frequenter of the neighboring colleges. But he believes in the 
advice, "Go west, young man, go west". "When it comes to 
business, put Larry in the leadership and it will succeed. He 
could sell people a keyless typewriter, as a new noiseless model. 
Here's to the smiling future political boss of the "Nutmeg State".

The wordly wise, the conscientious, the faithful, the executive,

the Index and a worker for Squibby he burns his candle far into

"midst the snows of winter. "Doc" has been known to perform 
among the athlete's fields, but his main field of endeavor is among 
the cloisters of the Abbey, or its suburbs, — Wilder, chapel steps, 
and the campus in general, before ten o'clock and the fatal key-

1901; Agricultural Economics. 

That Clarence should have transferred from Syracuse to this 
institution is not surprising in as much as he has that jejune, 
rustic bearing which characterizes him outwardly as an ardent 
agriculturist. Outside of class he is readily discerned by his 
jaunty gait and by the pipe he everlastingly pulls at. Although 
this lanky individual is majoring in Ag. Ec, he shows aptitude in 
his other pursuits. We are awaiting the day when Clarence will 
lay aside for good that R. O. T. C. uniform, in order that we may 
more fully appreciate his trim appearance. 


Quincy, Mass. Quincy High School 

1902; Class Baseball (2); Kappa Gamma Phi. • 
This curly headed nordic entered our civic institution in the 
class of '24, but after an absence from school, his mind cooled and 
he returned to college among the men of 192.5. He has readily 
adapted himself to his environment and now plods his way toward 
perfection in landscaping. While his stamping grounds are 
extensive he has no special attraction as yet and so goes on getting 
experience. He throws lefthanded and thus was of benefit to his 
team around first base during Freshman year. Quincy enjoys 
his presence semi-occasionally and expects to rejoice in his 
career as a topographical beautifer.

'".Johnny" will never live down his title of "President Hyde" 
that he acquired because of his energetic work on the banquet 
committee Freshman year. This energy has lasted in all the 
work he undertakes and whenever there is something to do for the

He has a very artistic taste which he hopes to use in the realm 
of landscape gardening and has made good use of that taste by 
contributing much that adds to the attractiveness of this Index.

If the frosh had only the power to read this youth's dark eyes 
or had they watched the company he kept, they would have 
possibly had a few score hats to burn and not a large number to 
mourn for; had they nailed him to a tree in the banquet scrap 
they would have had no loss of a large number of cuffs. 

Altluiugh Eddie has never been seen at the Abbey, he has 
brought more co-eds into the limelight than any "fusser" — he 
pulls the curtain at the Roister Doister shows. Those who know 
him feel that he is cut out for something big, although he modestly 
says that the farm is sure to claim its own. 



Lowell, Mass. Lowell High School 

1899; Animal Husbandry. 

This son of the gods is just full of energy and musical tempera- 
ment. Any one living in the North Dorm Sophomore year will 
vouch for the fact that if anything was up "Jim" was sure to have 
a hand in it somewhere. Many a door panel has yielded under 
tlie added pressure of "Jim's" shoulder. Then again the college 
at large has not had the benefit of his musical ability since the 
orchestra of today does not call for a mandolin. Those who have 
roomed near him tho have sat for hours under the spell he wrought 
by his playing of classics.

Enter, pride of Bridgewater. Fresh from hometown, this 
budding young landscraper has managed to hang on with us for 
three years and is still going strong. Aside from his studies, for 
he is something of a student, Lewie has quite a list of accomplish- 
ments. A model soldier for two years, he has elected to grace 
military circles with his influence and presence for two years 
more. In fact, even now he is the class soldier. Being a better 
manager than player he proceeded to annex the baseball manager- 
ship, as a Sopli. In great addition too, "Lewie", being one of the 
most efficient hash-slingers of recent years has been added to the 

ancient and d able order of "S. S. S.". As for his future — 

he'll care for that! 


Holyoke, Mass. Kosary High Scliool 

1896; Entomology; Alpha Sigma Phi. 

After "Jack's" two year "tour" in France, he dropped in on 
"Billy" and convinced him that his credits from Clarkson Tech 
were good enough to allow him to enter the class of '25, in our 
Sophomore year. He gave the Phys. Ed. '27 class a surprise in 
spite of his "Alderman's", and this spring he's out to make the 
younger generation step for a berth on the baseball squad. From 
the number of "seegars" the Ent. Lab. receives from Jack, it looks 
as if he'll be Holyoke's next mayor. 


Worcester Classical High School and Worcester Academy 

1895; Landscape Gardening. 

We at first supposed that this placid and erudite individual 
emanated from some elite suburb of Boston — Back Bay, perhaps 
— but it was a distinct shock to learn that Worcester was his 
burgh. He has, nevertheless, proved himself capable of big 
things at this institution. In the dining hall, for example. Palmer 
works at break-neck speed with big "Tarzan" Mouradian and goes 
about his task nonchalantly and unmindful of those about him. 
Palmer is a great lover of the novel and would more readily be 
discovered reading a good Sinclair Lewis or Hutchinson story than 
he would an agronomy or a physics text. This bibliophile never 
suffers ennui from books, for he applies himself with inexorable 
determination to everything pertaining to the intellectual. When 
Palmer has attained adequate experience as a landscaper, his 
classmates should be informed of the fact, so that they may have 
their little "nests" planned by one who knows how.

Lord of all things in the avian realm was John F. when he 
departed from his father's chicken farm in Methuen. 

The calm gaze and thoughtful air of the inhabitants of the 
poultry farm seem to have inculcated themselves into the heart 
of the pensive lad. John prefers to put his thoughts on paper 
instead of wasting them in thin air as i.s manifested by his collec- 
tion of English themes. 

But John is not always ruminating. The -most terrifying dash 
of the wildest cock is not to be compared with the speed and 
dexterity of a plunge made by John thru the opposing line on the

When Love departed from North College, the freshman 
inhabitants began to learn of a new variety other than the 
species "Andrew Wyllie". If ever the poor class of "26 suffered 
some heart-rending injustice, the blame was sure to go to '25 and 
land principally on "Huck", as we prefer to call this noble 
defender of our rights. 

Needless to say, "Huck" has been active in class activities, 
especially in athletics. As a twirler on the baseball diamond his 
"English" on the ball approached very nearly a similar outward 
curve in the morphology of his pseudopods. "Huck" is a bright 
lad mentally and aspires to great things in the field of agriculture.

1903; Pomology; Class Baseball (1, 2); Class basketball 
(2, 3); Kappa Sigma. 

Enter "Sam", class pessimist and pride of Maine. The old 
Pine Tree State was conscious of her act when she sent her 
Samuel to "Aggie". Pomology is his major; we expect that 
Maine will lead in apple production in a tew years as she does 
now in potatoes. Tho he is very modest we remember him as the 
"King Swat" on our freshman baseball team from his numerous 
triples and home runs. As far as we know Sam is "woman 
proof" — yet, with his smile and fair face we cannot guarantee 
permanent immunity. 

Altho pseudo-pessimistically inclined he is a favorite with all 
of his classmates. 



Millville, Mass. U.xhridge High School 

1902; Agricultural Education: Alpha Sigma Phi. 

"Duke"' hails from the metropolis of Millville. Thoroughly 
disgusted with the roar of machinery in this busy town, he came 
to the backwoods of Amherst for a rest. 

But lo and behold — poor Duke was soon officiating in the 
kitchen of Draper Hall where the "clank" of dishes soon com- 
menced another deathly din in his poor brain. 

Duke has finally decided to relegate most of his pleasure to 
the realm of tobacco. He firmly maintains that if you have a 
good supply of the old nicotine in yer, yer all set'

"Moxie" came to M. A. C. with "Mog" as his side kick. When 
the collegiates saw them, they swore that Goliath and David had 
made up. For the first two years "Moxie" managed to lumber 
between classes by the aid of his peda! extremities. With the 
beginning of his Junior year "Moxie" realized that walking was 
too strenuous, so he purchased a Ford. That Ford has caused 
his downfall, for now "Moxie" goes out with the women and 
everything, and some say that he has even had his arm around 
them. He has taught several fellows to drive so that they 
could operate the car while he sat on the rear seat. "Moxie" is 
Captain of Varsity Football, and under his leadership the team 
is sure to go big. He is liked by everyone.

Mighty Charles, fighter, puckster, baseball player, and football 
hero — he was the one, who on 1925's first "razoo" night, with 
padded mits, exhibited his goods and extinguished the sweetest 
hope of the Sophomore class. On the gridiron he has proved 
his worth. "Mac" has a bad habit — bad for someone else — of 
plunging through the line or through a pile with men all over him 
unwillingly taking a free ride. If a dash for liberty is any criter- 
ion, we have the possibilities of a marvelous runner in "Mac". 
He would only need to be handcuffed and chased by a few howling 
Frosh a whole track team. 

"Mac" is yet to be reconciled to prolonged study, though such 
conditions as he has met up with have failed to stop him.

It seems that "bugs ' and "Don ' are inseparable in as much as 
he has elected to major in Entomology and that another one, the 
"radio bug" has bitten him rather hard. "Joe Radio" as he is 
playfully called by his most intimate acquaintances may be seen 
at any of the wee small hours twirling a set of dials to see if he 
can't pick up something new or rearranging the hookup on a .set 
already so complicated that one gets dizzy trying to figure it out. 
It is rumored that he is to install some sort of a sending set so 
that he can keep a heavy line going to "the one" back in Hudson 
without having to wield a pen.

As a member of our freshman eleven this big boy was a wonder 
at removing all obstacles from a schoolboy opponent to a ref- 
eree's decision to gain a victory: since then majoring successively 
under "Pat". "Bull", "Car!", and "F. P. R", has prevented 
his participation in the King of all college sports. 

This easy-going, big-hearted youth intends to spend his days in 
animal husbandry; we feel that his summer sojourns at Dutcliland 
Farms and his training here in the class-room, to say nothing of 
that in the hash-house, will fit him preeminentl.y for such. So 
long. "Mouri"! Don't forget us. for we won't forget you. 


Holyoke. Mass. Holyoke High School 

1901; Microbiology; Class President (1); Collegian ("2, 3);

"Mogen David" came to M. A. C. from Holyoke. "Mog" has 
a kind of literary instinct, and releases it by getting advertismeiits 
for the Collegian in the capacity of Advertising Manager. He is 
one uf the triumvirate of Marx. Zwizler. and Moxon. All started 
in school together in the kindergarten, and all are in the same 
class in the same college. "Mog" is not as strong as the other 
two for the women, but there is one in Holyoke who he has 
brought to house parties many times. "Mog " hopes to be a 
great Microbiologist. His cheery "how do", and good fellowship 
will be great assets to him when he starts to conquer the world. 



Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 

1903; Chemistry. 

Because his original habitat is within such close proximity to 
Amherst, we see little of Paul about the campus except when 
class or college calls. Few get to know this quiet, unassuming 
lad but once you have penetrated his silence and get to under- 
stand him you will find a fellow with a dry sense of humor and a 
keen mind. Maybe he will startle the industrial world with 
some chemical discovery, but it will not arouse him a bit.

.\lthough he helped win the war "Cap" is otherwise O. K. He 
does not grace the camp\is except between classes and the daily 
seminar at billiards in the "M" building. "Cap" is gradually 
becoming an enthusiastic protegee of "Doc" Beaumont and he is 
intending to go into the fertilizer game for which he is admirably 
fitted. Botany 25 is "Caps" favorite sport, outside of his 
family. Sometimes we are afraid we are going to lose our "Cap" 
because of his fondness for Arizona, and the dry climate out 
there. But for all of "Cap's" failings we are proud oF him and 
also thankful that we weren't under him in the army.

Did you ever see him wrinkle his nose in smiling? If so, you 
know "Charley" Oliver. We know him as an embryonic hellion, 
a darn good scout, and a tireless worker. The complete wrecking 
and nailing up of No. 3 North, and the nocturnal thunderings of 
the rolling ash can on the ironclad stairs of North College's East 
entry have proven the first fact; the second is self explanatory; 
his tireless work on the Collegian and Index as well as that of 
being ass't-manager of football speak for the last. Somebody 
else knows him differently — pictures don't lie. However, we will 
always remember Charley as the one who gave more for his class 
than any one else in it. We know that you have the stuff.

Down from the hills came our "Red " Prom his fold, 
His quick wit abounding; his fame yet untold. 
And now he has shown of the triumverate 
Wine, women and song he'll ne'er satiate. 
At home with the ivories — a producer of song — 
.\'rolling the ivories, he never goes wrong. 
Smooth boy, forsooth, yet his humor's well known — 
We like all his jokes e'en tho they strike home. 
Hourly his smoke brings him nicotine joy 
From trials of the classroom where studies don't cloy. 
Jazzing the keys, cracking wise in "Enl" class 
Have left us bright memories of "Red " that never will pass.

The "wire" city boy came to us without a nickname but "Joe" 
Peltier soon arrived via "Hamp". His chief activity is Carnegie 
while the remainder of the time he is remarkably inactive until 
someone says bridge or bed. "Joe" is majoring in the course 
"Mastery of Eucking Bronchos". He has succeeded well so far 
having only dismounted once when no order was given to dis- 
mount. Joe's chief attribute is humor of the driest sort altho 
that word dry sounds only too natural now-a-days. He has 
also been known to serenade the Abbey without ill effects altho 
he lived in close proximity during the early part of his college

This easy going, yet most efficient business manager of ours is a 
well known figure on the campus and one to figure on when any 
work is to be done. He gave up a business (?) trip to New York 
to labor on this Index; he has accounted for many points in our 
track victories — an incarnation of flying Mercury may be seen 
in this fast flying quarter-miler. 

The facts that he studied in New York last summer, that he 
writes there occasionally, that he has a reserved seat on the 
last trolley from "The Mountain" and that, with lame excuses, 
he romps home very often force us to conclude that his feminine 
affinities are strong.

Straight up from the land of balmy breezes, silvery moon, and 
lovable women Freddy eame and seemed to bring some of that 
romantic spirit with him. The fair damsels of the North mar- 
veled at his rapid fire flow of words and his wavy hair, and he has 
his pick of the lot from several women's institutions. 

It was thought at one time that Freddy had induced about half 
of Cuba to join him here, but they came and went and he alone 
remains to see his course through. 



Bernadston, Mass. Powers Institute

A lad of agricultural proportions and even bearing a generic 
designation savoring of his agronomical lineage, "Pete" has 
proven true to type and cast his lot in the field of animal hus- 
bandry, although for a while he was trying to attempt a major in 
English. So far his training has been quite extensive, as 
evidenced by his association with the cows of the dairy barn, the 
horses of the cavalry unit, and the "fair lambs" from over yon 
mountains to the south.

Out of the West came '•Charlie" like Lochinvar of old and he 
won his way into the hearts of his classmates from the very start. 
He has no need of the proverbial steed since his own legs can 
carry him over the endless miles without weakening. As a 
member of the relay team he has shown a clean pair of heels to 
many a runner. 

•'Charlie" absolutely affirms that he has no need of any course 
in statistics since he has compiled them for this book and says that 
he has spent enough time digging out facts and figures to give him 
five credits. Take it from him that if you are looking for a ••gut" 
activity stay away from this department of the Index.

"Red" is another of the favored few of us that tasted the mud of 
France. He survived the battle, became a benedict and joined 
our class. "Red"" takes his exercise crabbing a lev/ of us and rid- 
ing his bicycle. He took a hand as a football trainer; and well — 
"enuf said"". Around the campus "Red"" is a valuable man, a 
dangerous man, and a liability because of his propensity for 
tossing the javelin and at the same time ruining them. "Red " is 
quite a chicken fancier (only the feathered kind now) and we feel 
that if he keeps on at the .=ame rate that he is going now he will 
Hood the market with eggs some day. Go to it "old redhead""

This downy chinned youngster came to Amherst with many 
fixed ideas. He is almost a Cape Codder and his town boasts the 
shipment of most of the fruit for which Massachusetts is famous. 
Fred played baseball freshman year but soon the Amherst Gas 
Company found that they could not get along without him so 
he puts in the early hours of the morning to good advantage there. 
He is ambitious as is evidenced by the zeal with which he enters 
into his work. His ambitions lead him into another field; 
mention South Amherst and notice the most becoming blush. 
If he puts his ideas into practice, we will be proud to have known

"Sammy" first attracted attention when our class was but a 
week old, by defeating, in a most decisive manner, his towering 
opponent in the Freshman-Sophomore boxing scrap. "Sammy" 
lias played varsity baseball, but he leaves his greatest impress on 
I lie basketball court. None who have seen the Aggie basketball 
I cam in action can deny the important part played by this dim- 
inutive whirlwind. "Sammy"" shoots baskets as easily as he wipes 
L'lasses in the "hash"" house. 

His modesty and geniality have won for him the respect of his 
ilassmates, and these very qualities will win for him in life even 
greater laurels than he gained in college.

This very learned-looking, light-hearted, happy-go-lucky 
satirist hails from "Hamp" and so far the charms of Smith 
have failed to divert him from an assiduous bachelorhood. "Saz" 
is our proverbial woman-hater. 

After collecting a unique list of nicknames from the baffled 
members of many departments of learning he has become a 
prepotent champion of Entomology, in which, as his present 
avocation and potential vocation, he ascintillates alone. There 
are no flies on von, Saz.

Quietly this dark, husky hermit has moved among us, taking 
his share of honors on the football field and in the Senate chamber. 
"Shum" is well known to most of his classmates by his deep 
forceful personality and his dignified, manly bearing. Though 
very studious and cautious, his curiosity and unparalleled indepen- 
dence led him to the production of a familiar "Sulphuric" reaction 
in Chem. 25. 

Though posses.sed with no known affinities, he has such, we 
suspect from his eagerness to make the Friday afternoon train 
for Monson still, the "Waking the Baby" may have something 
to do with it. Ask "Mac" about that.

Young in body, but old in mind — yea, an apostle of Ben Frank-

could .see any sense to reading pretty poems about violets and the 
stars and fair maidens that die of lovesickness. "But now you

enured to the effects of six guns and hard licker. Which environ- 
ment probably explains his habitual quietness. 

As a student, fame has come to him thru his ability to contort

As a man of society we have little to report exce])t that he has 
been wary of women and especially wary of red hair.

Another of the Smith species — yet she is a very special variety. 
Though Emily has a tame Ford that bounds merrily about the 
campus and which is trained to stand still any length of time 
without tying, chauffering is not her only accomplishment. If 
she does not get a Phi Kappa Phi key it will be because she does 
too many things outside of her studies for some one else. With a 
calm quiet air she rules the Abliey as House Chairman; as secre- 
tary of the Woman's Student Council and as one of the Collegian 
editors she wields a mighty pen. Beneath a quiet exterior she 
hides one of the richest senses of humor that ever broke into

With undaunted courage and confidence, he has attained more

us of his good work in class hockey, his unexcelled marks in

in dampening the clothes and spirits of Florida's pride. More than

inconsiderable success, besides holding many important offices in

tuned to the ".4bbey".

Woe be to the prof, who soars above the heads of a class of

vidual very often pipes up with a "Well, I don't see how you can 
say that", or, "How do you expect us to get all that?" Many a 
time a prof, has been brought down from the ether to terra firma 
by the point blankness of this outspoken youth. Walt looks as 
serious as a fire in a powder mill, yet much humor underlies his 
emotionless exterior. If you particularly desire to derive enjoy- 
ment from his companionship, just ask him to whistle a tune. 
If you are not lifted into a state of exuberance by the blithesome- 
ness of his chirp, then you lack aesthetic appreciation. Walt 
cannot help but make good, for he is always diligent and cheerful.

From Springfield there has never sprung a lad of more globose 
proportions. In fact, poor Sam has such a huge reverberating 
space for his voice that when he speaks one hears but a shrill, yet 
hardly perceptible echo. 

Kunning true to conformation Sam aspired, on his arrival at 
Aggie, to big things in the field of Animal Husbandry. But. alas, 
Sam found, to his sorrow, the life of a herdsman to be too strenu- 
ous — since his motto is "Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow 
we 'pass out"". So Sam had to content himself with something 
of a more aesthetic nature, and thus he has decided to rest his 
blissful soul in the wreaths of Floriculture. 

May peace be thine, dear Samuel, fairer than Adonis over whom 
the Goddess of Beauty wept.

Clasig ftisitorp, 1926 

IN September, 19'-2''2, the class of 1926 made its first appearance on the campus, 
and was joyfully hailed by the faculty with a cry of "Welcome to the Cultural 

We have never been formally designated as part of the Massachusetts Experi- 
ment Station, under some such title as "Educational Experiment Group" or 
"Scholastic Proving Ground", but we have served in an experimental capacity from 
our first verdant appearance. We puzzled over pots and boxes of assorted grasses 
and grains, — and they don't give Freshman Agronomy any more! We read re- 
ports and publications and looked much and learned little, and finally Freshman 
Agriculture was established as a three-term course. 

Non-academically, 19^26 has proved her brain equals her brawn. For two 
successive years, she has dragged '2.5 thru the cold, wet waters of the Pond, — the 
first class in ten years to accomplish this. Altho '25 won the Night-shirt Scrap 
our Freshman year, we have proved that the so-called fragile Freshmen can grow 
to stalwart Sophomores by winning the Id'iS Scrap. 

The Banquet Scrap.' 1926 won it, and banqueted afterwards at the Bridge- 
way in Springfield, where many weird tales of the night's happenings were told. 

1926 has representatives on all the varsity athletic teams, and supports her 
class teams as loyally as she does the varsity. '26 men are on the Squib and Col- 
legian boards, and in the Musical Clubs. Wherever there is work to be done, 
there is a '26 man to do it, might easily be adopted as a class motto.- 

But above, and after, and thru all, we are the Experiment Station. For two 
years more the following dialogue will take place whenever anyone has an idea or 
even a theory concerning class work — 

Any Professor: How would it do to have a course in Basketry (or Ford Husbandry 

or Plowing) ? 
All the Faculty: It might work out very well. To be sure, we will — 
Chorus: Trv it on 1926!

\ XOTHER class has come to old Aggie, and all its members no matter whence 
■^ *■ they come, from Provincetown to Williamstown, unite in declaring that 
M. A. C. and 1927 are sure to be the best combination seen on campus for a long 
time. To be sure the year started rather inauspiciously with the sophomores 
winning the nightshirt parade and rope pulls; but after we got used to the ways 
of the world, (as portrayed by the class of '26) we got down to business and 
started to show just how good we were! 

In football we were more successful. Under the skillful guidance of Coach 
Gordon and Captain "Joe" Hilyard the team had a very good season. The ob- 
jective game, that against the sophomores, was fought and won in a way which 
pleased the class mightily. In hockey, our team defeated both '2-1 and "25, but did 
not meet '26 as the ice was in poor shape. Basketball with "Red" Ball as coach 
and "Ken" Bond as captain had an unusually good season, although defeated in 
the interclass series by '26. 

It is, however, in academic activities that the spirit and loyalty of "27 has 
been most apparent. Our men have made good in debating. Pickens, Haskins 
and Harris were members of the Varsity debating team against the University of 
Maine. Several made the musical clubs. On the Collegian Board and Squib 
Board there are freshman members. In Roister Doisters the class is well repre- 
sented, for there are three freshmen in the cast of "Dulcy". 

The Banquet scrap is before us. and whatever the outcome we will meet it as 
good men and true, for we are true to Aggie, our Alma Mater.

"VTO man has done more to promote the physical well being of the students 
-^ ^ upon this campus than he whose name heads this article. It has been 
through his earnest endeavor that athletics are now on a firm basis in this institu- 

Prof. Hicks was born in the state of New York in the year 1885. During 
the years 1902 to 1903 he attended the Michigan Agricultural College, from 1908 
to 1909, he was instructor of Physical Education in the Michigan State Normal 
College, at the duration of which period he received the degree of B.Pd. The 
next year he became a Hitchcock Fellow in Physical Education at Amherst 
College, Amherst, Mass. In the year 1910 to 1911, he returned to his native 
state and fulfilled the position of Director of Athletics in the Michigan State 
Normal College. The succeeding year he received the appointment as Assistant 
Professor of Physical Education and Hygiene at M. A. C. Today he is Professor 
of Physical Education and Hygiene and Director of Athletics. 

For many years prior to 1912 the construction of a new athletic field had been 
considered but for various reasons such a project failed to materialize. In the 
fall of 1912, Prof. Hicks asked permission from the President to visist several of 
the state institutions for the purpose of examining their athletic fields. Consent 
was given, with the result that twenty-three of the state colleges and universities 
were visited and their athletic fields carefully inspected. These investigations 
were the beginning of plans for the new field. 

In 1914, the actual construction of the field began, and was developed accord- 
ing to the plans recommended and drawn up by Prof. Hicks. 

M. A. C. is proud of this field and of those who lent their hands in its con- 
struction, but they will never lose sight of the fact that it was through this 
man who so untiringly gave himself to the task, that the dreams of her sons might 

All this time he has been working towards a program of athletics which will 
bring physical recreation for all on a strictly amateur basis. Furthermore he 
was one of the instigators of the New England conference; the eligibility rules 
of this conference are practically the same as those that he has had working in this 
college for the last ten years. 

Today, Prof. Hicks is held in high esteem by all that know him. With a 
man of such aggressiveness at its head the Athletics Department of this college is 
bound to continue its improvement and prove an invaluable asset to the college.

HAROLD M. GORE, Head Coach 
At the head of our coaching staff we have a man whose dynamic energy has 
been a source of inspiration both to the athletic teams which he has coached and 
to the student body as a whole. For several years Coach Gore assumed the 
responsibility of coaching football, basketball, and baseball, but for the past two 
years he has devoted his time almost entirely to football and basketball. Since 
the start of his coaching every team which he has produced has been of such high 
calibre as to build up for him an enviable reputation. However, Coach Gore's 
interests are not centered on athletics alone, for he also works for the elevation of 
student morale. We have in Coach Gore the spirit of "Aggie" personified. 


After graduating from Hudson High School in 1910 "Derb" attended M. A. 
C. as an unclassified student. During the late war he served in the medical 
department overseas for a period of one j^ear. Since the war he has served as 
Instructor in Physical Education at this college. For the past three years he has 
coached the track teams. From meagre material he has developed teams which 
have placed well in all meets participated in. 


"Red" is one of the best known of local talent who have graduated from 
"Aggie". While attending college he played both basketball and baseball with 
great ability. Since graduating in '21 his time has been devoted to athletics, 
serving in the capacity of trainer of varsity teams and coach of freshman and 
two-year teams. 


"Em" Grayson graduated from this college in '17 after completing a college 
course filled with many athletic honors. He captained the 1917 basketball team 
which is one of the three outstanding teams developed at this institution. During 
his coaching period here he has asserted his versatility by aiding in the instruction 
of both varsity and class teams in football, basketball, and baseball. 


The latest addition to our coaching staff is a member of the class of 192.S. 
During "Doc's" college career he played both baseball and hockey, captaining 
the latter team his senior year. His efficiency on the diamond and on the rink 
were very i)ronounced. At the duration of his senior year he received the ap- 
pointment as coach of Freshmen Athletics. A fine spirit of cooperation manifests 
itself in the teams with which he has worked.

^ ^J)ort ^urbep of Pagfeetball at M^ ^. C 

T) ASKETBALL was first introduced in M. A. C. in '98 by the Freshmen class 
-'-' of '01. The popularity of the sport steadily increased until in 190''2 the 
first varsity basketball team of intercollegiate calibre was organized. The team 
was captained by J. M. Dellea 'O^ and the record of five games won out of eight 
played was a very creditable performance. 

For the next few years the sport suffered indifferent success due perhaps to 
difficulty in arranging schedules and finances. Indeed basketball was being 
censured by the students of many colleges resulting in the loss of popularity of 
the sport. From 1909 to 1917 varsity basketball on this campus was a thing 
of the past. Again in '17 mainly through the efforts of Physical Director Hicks 
varsity basketball was reestablished with E. Grayson as captain and Harold M. 
Gore as coach. A successful season that year resulted in the permanent installa- 
tion of the sport at M. A. C. From '17 on this branch of intercollegiate athletics 
has become more and more popular. M. A. C. has had sixteen varsitj' basketball 
teams and has played one hundred and seventy-five games, winning 8.5 and 
losing 90. In the eight seasons from '02 to '09. "Aggie" played seventy-four 
games; won twenty -nine and lost forty-five. The eight teams following the 
resumption of the sport in 1917 have played one hundred and one games; won 
fifty-six and lost forty-five. There have been only six winning M. A. C. basket- 
ball teams in the history of the sport; '02, '03, '17, '22, '23, and '24. The last 
three "Aggie" varsity teams have won twenty -nine games and lost twelve; 
they have only lost one game in the Drill Hall in three years, and have won one 
third of all the games "Aggie" has won. M. A. C. leads all state colleges in the 
New England Conference except New Hampshire. 

Since the reestablishment of basketball at M. A. C. three of the varsity 
teams have been outstanding; the 1917 team with four out ef six; the 1922 team 
with eleven out of fifteen; and the 1924 with eleven out of fourteen. The 
lineups of these three representative "Aggie" teams were as follows:

PASSING through the most disappointing season that any baseball team could 
be asked to go through, the Aggie team emerged the winners of but one game 
out of the schedule of twelve. It can be easily called the most unsuccessful season 
that an Aggie team has ever gone through, but M'hen the individual games are 
studied it does not seem so disheartening. 

The team began the season with the highest of hopes, for under the coaching 
of Herbert L. ("Hubba") Collins, well known in Aggie athletics for four years, the 
men felt that they were prepared to give a good account of themselves against all 
comers. But in the first game, with Wesleyan, the 19-6 defeat which was handed 
the Aggies was a poor index of a successful season. One bright spot in this game, 
however, was the work of Gordon with the willow, for he hit safely four times in 
five trips to the plate. 

Syracuse was the second opponent of the season, on Ahunni Field, and they 
also handed the 'Aggie team a sound beating by the score of 10-,S, The Maroon 
and White did not find themselves until the ninth inning, when a vain attempt to 
equal ten runs of their opponents resulted in three. As in the AVesleyan game the 
fielding was ragged, and although Brunner pitched a good game as his first in 
collegiate ball he was not given the support due him. 

The game with Harvard at Cambridge was the best that the team had 
played thus far, but ten errors are a hard handicap to overcome, and though the 
boys came within one run of tying the score at one stage of the game. Harvard 
soon drew out of danger when Captain Owen,smashed out a home run, scoring 
two runs. 

The next two games, with Dartmouth and Williams, were also reverses for 
the Aggies, Dartmouth proving herself the better by a 17-5 score and Williams 
settling the outcome with a 12-5 defeat. 


The first game with Amherst, on Pratt P'ielcl, also turned out disastrously for 
Aggie when Leete pitched a shutout game while Amherst piled up five runs. In 
this game it was claimed that Leete pitched a no-hit, no-run game, but a scratch 
hit by Barrows which several of the scorers refused to credit him with prevented 
such a feat. 

In the game against Colby Coach Collins' nine showed a marked improve- 
ment, but though the game was played on a wet field, under severe conditions, 
bunched hits by the Colby players resulted in a 10-6 victory for them. Aggie 
totalled more hits than their opponents, but were unable to come through when 
they were needed the most. 

In their game with Trinity, the eighth on the list, the Aggie players went like 
veterans and buried their opponents under a 10-1 score. In three innings nine 
Aggie hits went for eight runs and again in the seventh bunched hits and clever 
base-running brought in two more. Trinity scored their lone run in the first 
inning, but from then on, Brunner, pitching for Aggie, kept the hits few and well 
scattered, thus preventing any rally. 

The next game was with Bates, the visitors taking the long end of a 6-2 score, 
but again Aggie hit safely more times than did its opponents. Costly errors at 
crucial moments were the cause of the defeat. 

Aggie entertained Amherst in their second game of the season the following 
week and humbly bowed to the Sabrinas by the score of 15-5. Leete again 
pitched a fine game for Amherst, fanning fourteen batters, and issuing only two 
passes. The Aggie team did not play a consistent brand of baseball and weakened 
at times, not giving Brunner the support he deserved. 

In their second game with Wesleyan, on Alumni Field, the Aggie team did not 
fare so badly as in the first, but they were defeated by an 8-4 score which was a 
bit better than the 19-6 loss at Middletown. 

Winding up the season with a game at Williamstown, the Aggie team lost 
their hardest fought and best played game of the year by a 4-3 score. Playing 
heady baseball and giving Johnson and Brunner the best of support the team put 
on a pretty exhibition of baseball. The hitting was hard, Barrows and Cahill 
both getting home runs for Aggie, while Monjo poled out a circuit clout for AVil- 
liams. Barrows' drive came in the first inning, and was a long hit to left field. 
Cahill, leading off in the second inning, duplicated it and had no trouble in getting 
home. Again in the sixth frame bunched hits by Gordon and Hilyard with an 
error by Fricke produced another tally. With Aggie in the lead in the ninth it 


looked like victory, hut Fisher singled and scored on Monjo's home run, clinching 
the game for the home team. 

The team seemed to be particularly weak in the pitching staff, Coach Collins 
being forced to use all men who had never figured in college ball before. Gordon 
played a fine game in left field and was a sure sticker at the plate. Marshman 
played consistently at first base and was by no means weak at the bat. Barrows 
received in the battery, continuing his excellent work of the year before, and he 
played every minute of every game except against Wesleyan, when Kane went in 
in the ninth. Captain Sargent covered his territory well in right field and though 
small he proved an able man with the stick. Nicoll did good work in the infield, 
and was elected to lead the team in its effort to come-back during the coming sea.son.

I ^HE lO^S season brought a revival of indoor track meets on the athletic pro- 
-*- gram. The past schedule included two indoor track meets; with Worcester 
and Northeastern respectively. 

The season opened Jan. 20th with a race with the fast Williams team which 
decisively defeated the M, A. C. quartet. The second race was at the B. A. A. 
Meet at Boston, Feb. 3rd. The team came in second being beaten by inches by 
the University of Vermont. "Don" MacCready, captain of the relay team, en- 
tered the 1000 yard handicap race at this meet and won the event easily with a 26 
yard handicap. 

At the K. of C. meet Feb. 17, the team succeeded in beating B. U. in a closely 
fought race, evening up for the defeat of the previous year. Roger Friend en- 
tered the two mile handicap held at this meet and by sprinting the last two laps 
placed second. 

MacCready gave Aggie's name a decided boost in the athletic world Feb. 24, 
at the N. E. A. A. U. Meet at Boston, when he placed second in the 1000 yard run 
and third in the 600 yard run. This deed is more commendable since he was 
pitted against such men as Cavanaugh and Welch of B. C. 

The weakness in field events proved the downfall of the track team in the 
dual meet at W. P. I. The relay team won. MacCready captured one first 
and one second besides running on the relay team. The final score hung on the 
outcome of the shot put, and a .second place was not enough to draw the team into 
the lead, the final score was 35-33. 

At Northeastern in the dual meet the team was defeated 54-24. The relay 
team was defeated. MacCready won the 600 yprd run and Iloger Friend won the 
one mile run.

'HpHE Spring Track Team won the first meet with Norwich, Apr. 28th by the 
-*- score of 62-5.5. Owing to the inclemency of the weather both the runs and 
the field events were seriously hampered and time was slow. Captain Mac- 
Cready was the individual star for M. A. C. with nine points. 

The dual meet with Conn. Aggie on May 5 was lost 68-58. "Ed" Tumey won 
the broad jump and placed second in the discus throw. Tumey and Salmon 
broke the college shot-put record with a throw of 35 feet each. "Eddie" Bike es- 
tablished a javelin throw record of 153 feet 4 inches. MacCready was unable to 
compete in this meet because of injuries. 

On May 12 the entire track team went to the Eastern Inter-Collegiate Meet 
at Springfield. The team scored eight points. Captain MacCready placed second 
in the 4-iO, Thompson second in the low hurdles, Stevenson fourth in the two mile, 
and Bike fourth in the javelin throw. 

Captain MacCready, Irish, Bike, Snift'en, Thompson, Nelson, and Stevenson 
were chosen to go to the New England Inter-Collegiates held at Tech. Field, Cam- 
bridge, May 18-19. The following four men cjualified to compete in the finals; 
MacCready placed second in his heat in the 440 yard trials, Thompson came in 
second in the trial heat of the 220 low hurdles. Bike placed fourth in the javelin 
throw, and Sniffen qualified in the trials of the 100 yard dash. In the finals Bike 
was the only man to score a point, placing fourth in the javelin throw. The point 
scored in the New Englands was the first scored in that meet since the 1920 season. 

The season ended with the Triangular meet held at Durham with the Uni- 
versity of Vermont and the University of New Hampshire. The University of 
New Hampshire won the meet with a total of 84 points. M. A. C. was second 
with 42 points while Vermont scored 37 points. New Hampshire showed unex- 
pected strength in the dashes and scored heavily in the field events. Stevenson 
won the two mile run for the second time. "Ed" Tumey won the discus throw 
and he again broke the college shot put record which he held jointly by a throw 
of 36 feet 4 inches. The mile relay team composed of Tisdale, Alger, Pierce, and 
MacCready won for the second year in succession. Captain MacCready estab- 
lished a new college record in the 440 yard run which he won in 50 3-5 seconds.

'TpHE loss cross country team was developed from new material since only one 
-*- veteran of the previous season returned. The Sophomore class furnished 
some good men. A Freshman cross country team was also inaugurated but it was 
impossible to arrange a schedule to give them competition owing to lateness of 
the season. 

The schedule opened with a race with W. P. I. over the home course. Cap- 
tain Stevenson was individual winner. Beem, a Sophomore, ran a very credible 
race and placed third. The race was close and the outcome was not certain till 
the end of the race. The final score was 26-30. 

The second race was with Wesleyan at Middletown, Conn., on Oct. 27. The 
race was close and fast. Captain Stevenson finished second. The race was 
scheduled to finish between the halves of the Wesleyan-M. A. C. football game. 
The final score was 28-29. 

The race at Williams was also held in conjunction with the football game with 
Williams, on Nov. 3rd. The men were troubled somewhat by the slippery condi- 
tion of the course. Captain Stevenson placed fourth and Beem placed fifth. The 
final score was 37-19. 

The race with Amherst was held over our course Nov. 9th. Captain Steven- 
son was individual winner in the exceptionally fast time of 27 minutes 3 seconds. 
Beem finished fourth. The score: M. A. C. 31, Amherst 24. 

The entire team went to Boston to the N. E. I. C. A. A. Cross Country Meet 
Nov. 17th. Captain Stevenson, the first man to score for M. A C, finished 31th 
in a field of 78. The team finished 10th with a score of 391 points.

TT^OOTBALL has always held an important place in Aggie eaiiii)us life and tliis 
-*- year was no exception as evidenced by the number of men who tried out for 
the team, and the large body of students at the games away from home as well 
as those played on Alumni Field. The spirit of the team that was to represent 
Aggie was forecasted when thirty-five men gave up a part of their summer vaca- 
tion and put in ten days of drudging work in the heat of an exceptionally late fall 
in preparation for the opening games. Many men took advantage of the oppor- 
tunity to learn football and to help out the development of the varsity, irrespective 
of the fact that they would not make the team this year. Of a possible two- 
hundred and seventy men in the upper classes seventy drew equipment. Much 
emphasis was placed in giving the second team careful instruction, and Coach 
Abele did an excellent job with the squad which averaged from thirty to forty 
men during the season. Among the men on the scjuad there were only five letter 
men from the 1922 season, but with a wealth of material from the previous Fresh- 
man team. Rightfully was this team dubbed the "Little Green Team." In spite 
of its name, the team took for a slogan "a real battle for every team we meet" 
and a majority of the opponents will testify that the slogan was followed up. 

The season opened with Rensselaer Polytech, a team that lost but two games 
in the last two seasons. This was one of the hardest opening games that Aggie 
has had in many years and it was a harder game to lose. The "Little Green Team" 
started off with a bang and after repeated efforts pushed across a touchdown and 
made good the extra point. A bad break gave R. P. I. two points on a safety. 
What looked like a sure 7-2 victory was turned into a 9-7 defeat through the 
line plunging of a two-hundred eleven pound fullback through a light line. 

Without question Aggie should have deserved to win the game against Bates. 
They completely outplayed them, making twelve first downs as compared with a 


lone one that Bates made. They were doomed to defeat though when a punt 
earomed out of the arms of an Aggie player was scooped up by an alert Bates end 
who went for a touchdown. The point after touchdown gave them the victory. 
Captain Salman showed exceptional ability at his end. 

The "Pratt Field Jinx" held its sway and our old rivals, Amherst, won a bitter 
but clean fought game by a 7 to 3 score. A beautiful field goal by Jones looked 
as if Aggie would win by this means, but the forward passes used by Amherst 
were always dangerous, and a thirty-five yard pass paved the way for a touch- 
down iind victory. 

The team showed its real power when greatly outweighed by the Wesleyan 
club defeating them 13-0. From the very beginning the result was never in 
doubt, as the Aggie boys drove through the husky Wesleyan line on every play. 
They made three times as many first downs as their opponents, and carried the 
ball 337 yards to the 9.5 it was carried by Wesleyan. The line played a wonderful 
defensive game and time and again threw runners for a considerable loss. 

Williams, with a big, fast team, ran rough shod over Aggie '2.5-0; the wet 
slippery condition of the field gave their weight added advantage. Several regu- 
lars were kept out of the game due to minor injuries which could not be taken a 
chance with. In spite of the defeat several men showed well on the defense, Cap- 
tain Salman, Marx and Gustafson tackling like demons. 

Against Stevens the team showed some of its power and cleverness by running 
its opponents oft' their feet and pushing over four touchdowns against one that 
Stevens made. Nothing but straight football was used, but this was sufficient to 
carry the ball 324 yards. All through the game the Aggies played smashing, hard 
football and many times it was necessary to take time out for Stevens men who 
could not stand the gaff. It was also noticeable that not an Aggie man had to be 
taken out of the game on account of injury. 

Feeling their power displayed in the Stevens game and eager for revenge for 
the last year's game, the team put in a week of the hardest kind of work in prepa- 
ration for Tufts. As in every other game of the season, Aggie was again out- 
weighed. She put up a wonderful battle in spite of the handicap. As was the 
case last year, Ettleman's toe was the cause of Aggie's defeat. From the 35 yard 
line he booted a wonderful drop kick that gave them the necessary three point 
margin that won the game. Toward the end of the game Aggie was again driving 
down the field but the time was too short to make another touchdown. 


It has been remarked that Aggie has wonderful material for the coming year, 
but the coaching realizes that games were lost this past season due to the inex- 
perience and greenness of the raw material, and the fall of 1924 will see a better 
Mass. Aggie team only through the application of the same formula that started 
to produce results the past season: "Work, work and more work." 

To the casual observer of the M. A. C. aggregation lost five games and won 
two, but to the student of the great autumn sport there are some interesting points 
about these games contained in the following statistics.

\ GLANCE at the season's record gives no indication of the actual performance 
■^ ^ of the hockey team of 1924. Handicapped by an erratic weather program, 
suffering a severe setback by the loss of its captain and playing against colleges 
represented by twelve or more men of equal ability, this little team "carried on". 
With the exception of Yale and Dartmouth games the outcome of each struggle 
was in doubt until the final whistle was blown. 

The team was coached by "Doc" Gordon, captain of the '23 team. The 
spirit and knowledge of the game which he instilled in the members of the squad 
was reflected in each game. Four veterans, Capt. Goldsmith, "Art" NicoU, 
Eric Lamb, and "Chick" Tewhill, formed the nucleus with which he had to work. 

Amherst opened our season here and although we lost the game it brought 
out the fact that the "Agates" had a real team in the making. At Hamilton 
the team, though defeated, again showed a powerful attack and good teamplay. 
Albany Country Club was defeated with; the score being limited by the 
poor condition of the ice. The wealth of able substitute material accounted for 
Yale's overwhelming victory. Springfield was decisively beaten, but the joy 
of victory was lost by the serious injury to "Goldie". Perhaps the best and 
closest game of the season was lost to West Point by 2 to 3 score. The result was 
in doubt until the last second. The same conditions prevailed at Dartmouth as 
at Yale, where an affluence of substitutes again spelled defeat. A whirlwind 
finish by a presumably beaten Williams sextet resulted in a five to one setback 
for our team. Amherst, our final opponent, was overcome in a struggle marked 
with fast and aggressive team work. 


Capt. Goldsinitir.s leadership was inspiring in the six games in which he 
participated. Play during the entire season gave evidence of teamwork rather 
than individualism. As a possible exception to the above was the performance 
of "Shug" Kane whose work in guarding the net kept the opponents score re- 
duced all season.

^ea£(on of 1924 

WITH three letter men a.i veterans. Coach Gore had a very unpromising out- 
look on the 1924 Basketball season. The 1923 Freshman Varsity team 
was very successful and it showed up some good material. The question was not 
material, but team work. These youngsters certainly proved that "Aggie" has at 
last got a system of which we may well be proud. When the men reported for 
practise, "Kid" looked them over hoping optimistically. He discovered that 
"Larry" Jones had a long reach and so he decided he would make a center 
of him. His judgment was sound for "Larry" fulfilled all contracts. While 
all these things were worrying the coaching staff. Temple and Smiley were 
steadily improving their game, in fact, their improvement was so great, it 
made two of the letter men watch the game the most of the time from the 
bench. Samuels, a substitute from the last year's team, was a demon for sinking 
the pill. "Eddie" Bike, of course, needed no extra coaching as he had his heart 
and soul in the game and, because of that fact, he nearly finished his playing days 
from overwork. 

Now the team was ready for its first game, which was looked forward to \vith a 
great deal of eagerness. Everybody wondered how the little green team would 
stand up under fire. Results tell. Wesleyan took the small end of a 40-19 score. 
There was a very little competition to this game. The next game was with 
Trinity. Well it's an old story with Mass. Aggie winning its second game 31-14. 
Now everybody looked forward to the next game. Aggie was on the map in the 
basketball world. "John" Harvard was the next victim. It was "Fritz" 
Ferranti that turned the "Crimson to Maroon" by sinking two neat baskets in 
the last few minutes of play and so placing the Agrarians to the fore. The 
next evening M. I. T. lost to the invincible "Agates" in a ragged game to the 
tune of 21-14. The team then came back to Amherst with a confident mien. 
They were praised and admired by everybody. Some of this admiration 
gradually seeped into the team and made them a trifle overconfident, which 
fact was brought out in their defeat at the hands of Stevens Tech. to the score 
of 21-23.

team and oiffered very httle resistance. The team soon had its chance to show its 
mettle by beating Conn. Aggie on its own floor. The winning streak was on again. 
Tufts was the next opponent and the game was a classic. Bobbie Barrows showed 
his worth in this game, after sitting on the bench the most of the season. 

AVorcester Tech. gave up hopes of beating the Agrarians and they carried 
home the light side of a 23-9 .score. "Kid's" fighting Agates then traveled to 
Kingston. They considered Rhode Island State not much to worry over, but 
they awakened at the last part of the game too late to bring home another 
win. Rhode Island got the game by one point 19-18. 

Williams put over the only bad defeat that the Agrarians had suffered by 
the score of 43-26. The Agates appeared to have lost or forgot all they knew 
about basketball. AVilliams had an extra good night combined with a good team. 
The ball did not seem to go through the hoop that night, although the Agrarians 
had plenty of chances. 

The schedule ended with a hard fought win over Univ. of Maine to the score 
of 32-21. The New Hampshire game was cancelled because of sickness.

WITH the new eligibility ruling in effect, future freshman baseball teams will 
be materially strengthened. The lO^G baseball team would have met with 
greater success if it had not been for the fact that four of its best men joined the 
varsity squad. As it was the team won but two of the seven games played. 
The new ruling, no doubt, will be a boon to freshman baseball. 

The 1927 football team was coached this year by "Doc" Gordon. Despite 
the lightness and inexperience of the team and the consequential mediocrity of 
record, the team gave each of its opponents a run for its money. The first game 
played away from home was lost to the heavy Vermont Academy team by a 16-0 
score. Greenfield and Deerfield next defeated the Frosh by the respective scores 
of 6-0 and 14-0. The season was happily concluded however, for after subduing 
Northampton High 19-6, the Frosh trimmed the Sophs in the annual classic by 
a 13-6 score. 

The 1927 basketball team enjoyed a fairly successful season, having won 7 of 
its 18 games. After having lost the first two games the team won four straight, 
losing the next game to the Conn. Aggie freshmen at Storrs by a close margin. 
For the remainder of the season the team met with invariable success, losing to 
Holyoke, Drury, and Arms Academy, and winning from Hopkins, Natick, and

THE National Defense Act of June, 1920, gave the United States its first 
well-defined military policy. Included in this legislation is specific provision 
for the training of collegians as potential officers for national emergency. It is 
held that young men with college education are the logical leaders of the masses 
in time of conflict and large sums of money are appropriated by Congress to quali- 
fy students as members of the Officers' Reserve Corps. 

Since the establishment of a cavalry unit of the Reserve Corps at M. A. C. 
in 1920, the squadron has made marked advance and is now commonly recognized 
in the ofiice of the Chief of Cavalry at Washington as an efiicient student-military 
organization. As an indication of progress it may be cited the opening of the 
school year 1920 there were five upper classmen enrolled for the advanced military 
training, 1921 found this number increased to sixteen, 1922 to twenty-five, and 
1923 to thirty-three. 

The custom of awarding the grade of Cadet-Major to a senior was started in 
the spring of 1922 when Harold E. Wentsch was in command of the student body. 
Lieutenant Wentsch, 0. R. C, subsequently was ordered to active duty by the 
War Department and detailed to the Cavalry School at Fort Riley, Kansas. 
Lieutenant Eyrie G. Johnson, Cavalry, U. S. A., was the second squadron com- 
mander. He took examinations for the regular army, prior to graduation, passed 
them successfully and is now assigned to Troop "A", 5th LTnited States Cavalry, 
at Fort Clark, Texas. The present Cadet-Major, James L. Williams, while at- 
tending the R. 0. T. C. Camp at Camp Devens last summer won the pistol cham- 
pionship in competition with cadets from eleven New England colleges. He was 
the only student to receive a Pistol Expert's badge. Major Williams, at the fall 
horse show conducted by the Military Department, was awarded the handsome 
William A. Stowell cup for the greatest proficiency sho-«Ti by a cadet officer during 
the course in equitation. 

At the 1923 Training Camp the presfent senior cadet officers, in company with 
a unit from Norwich University showed such proficiency that they were twice 
complimented by being detailed as a mounted escort of honor by General Malvern- 
Hill Barnum, once for the Secretary of War and at another time for the Chief of 
Infantry. The latter. Major General C. S. Farnsworth, was so impressed with 
the military conduct of the collegians that he ordered the troop drawn up for his 
inspection upon arrival at Camp headquarters. At that time he addressed the 
troop in glowing terms, praising them for their interest in national preparedness, 
primarily, and secondly for their excellent showing. 

The War Department recognized the high morale at this institution when it 
granted the upper classmen distinctive uniforms at the beginning of the present 
college year. Lack of funds prevented the outfitting of the entire cadet corps 


with other than the regulation clothing. Recent inspections, however, have so 
impressed visiting officers on official trips that they have promised their aid in 
securing the commutation for the entire squadron. 

M. A. C. is one of the six essentially academic institutions in the country 
where cavalry units are maintained. In addition to this number there are five 
military schools which are furnished with horses. The expense incurred by 
mounted instruction causes the number to be sharply limited and only colleges 
with splendid military records are considered in the allotments. 

There has been military training at M. A. C. under the Morrill Lsind Grant 
Act, which makes two years instruction in the duty of a soldier compulsory, since 
1867, when the college was founded. The college has been enrolled at various 
times for instruction in field artillery and infantry but it is conservative to record 
that the highest morale has developed since the arrival here of the fi'-st government 
horses for cavalry training on September 13, 1920. A comparison of equipment 
available at the time of the artillery training — two old brass field pieces — and that 
of the present time — sixty cavalry horses and equipment, the total value of which 
is $43,000 — shows to a marked degree the advancement of the college in the 
military department. 

Probably nothing has gone to give M. A. C. its present efficiency in this de- 
partment more than the development of the cadet officers. The squadron is 
administered in almost every phase of its practical work by the student officers. 
Their attention to duty and willingness has caused their training in command 
leadership to progress as outlined by the War Department General Staft' with the 
result that they would be readily available to assist in the construction of a huge 
army of defense in time of national emergency. The need for leaders of the type 
of college graduates is emphasized when it is stated that of the 4,000,000 men in 
service during the World War, only 600,000 would be available if a call to the 
colors were issued in 1925. 

In his first year at college, a cadet is assigned to a troop as a private and re- 
ceives disciplinary drill. His duty is such as would be allotted to a soldier in the 
ranks if an army were mobilized. During inclement weather, instruction is 
theoretical. At the end of his freshman year, the collegian should be qualified to 
act as a junior non-commissioned officer in a war-time army. 

At the start of the second year, a sophomore takes small groups of the enter- 
ing class and carries on the instruction, thus starting immediately their practice in 
command and leadership. Men who were outstanding during their first year are 
given such sergeant and corporal grades as are available at the beginning of the 
second year after the assignment of the upper classmen. Equitation starts during 
the second year. The theoretical work gives the sophomore a comprehensive 
view of the duties of a senior non-commissioned officer of the regular establish- 


For those who elect to continue the course every opportunity is given to ac- 
quire the ability of actual command. iVs a result of three years training, seniors 
are found in the upper commissioned grades while the juniors are given appro- 
priate commands of their rank. Selection of the cadet officers is made by the 
Professor of Military Science and Tactics alone and consideration is given to 
scholastic work, ability to handle men, military bearing, popularity, and work at 
the R. O. T. C. camp at the end of the junior year. This field training is compul- 
sory and lasts for six weeks. Upper classmen are paid for attendance at camp and 
also receive remuneration during their junior and senior years at the rate of the 
daily government ration. 

Following his four years" course in military work, the student is commissioned 
as a Second Lieutenant in the Cavalry branch of the Officers" Reserve Corps. 
Subsequent promotion is provided for by examinations for the next higher grade 
which may be taken every three years. The army conducts correspondence 
courses with a view to equipping the young officers for higher command. The 
newly-commissioned reserve officer is then assigned to a unit of the Organized 
Reserves, a component part of the Army of the United States. Cognizance of his 
home or place of Inisiness after graduation governs the assignment. He is so de- 
tailed that should he be called to active duty in time of grave danger he would 
mobilize and lead to duty, men from his immediate locality. Upon proper appli- 
cation, a reserve officer may be ordered to active duty and sent to Fort Riley for a 
course at the Cavalry School. During such a time he receives the pay and allow- 
ances of his grade in the regular army. 

M. A. C. is proud of its World War military record which will become tradi- 
tion. One has only to read of the stirring patriotism of Alumni, Under-Graduates 
and faculty in the hectic days of 1917-1918 to appreciate the great loyalty and love 
of country throbbing in the breast of every man of "dear old Massachusetts"'. 
Fifty-one sons of the institution made the supreme sacrifice under the colors and to 
read of their devotion is to cause the heart to beat a trifle faster and to revere the 
beautiful Memorial Building which will ever stand as a reminder of their sacrifice. 
And in the shadow of this memorial, drill M. A. C."s troops, hopeful that they may 
never have to hammer the plow'share into a saber but mentally confident that if 
the sanctity of their land is theatened their instruction in personal preparedness 
and ability to lead their fellows has not been in vain.

THE combined musical clubs have enjoyed a rather limited schedule of concerts 
during the past year. The season was started without a dance orchestra, it 
being thought the clubs could arrange a good program without one. This was 
later found to be futile. Since January a dance orchestra has been organized 
under the leadership of '"Buddy" Frost and "Rus" Noyes. Needless to say there 
has been no difficulty in scheduling concerts since then. 

The try-outs held in October revealed a wealth of material in the upper classes 
heretofore latent, and also several possibilities in the freshman class. The seniors 
and freshmen have more men represented than either of the other two classes at 
the present time. 

The first concerts were held at Conway and Hadley. Both of these served to 
polish off the clubs and give them poise for the Christmas trip and also laid a foun- 
dation for further engagement.j. Only one concert was given on the Christmas 
trip — that at Rockland, Mass., the annual entertainment under the auspices of 
the Boston Alumni Association being omitted because of a falling off of attendance 
during the past few years. Both alumni and undergraduates feel secure in the 
hope that this concert will be revived another season. 


During the second term concerts were given in Belchertown under the 
auspices of the High School, Northampton under the management of the Eastern 
Star, Florence with the patronage of the Unitarian Laymen's League. Amherst 
under the auspices of the Social LTnion, and Northampton at the Elks' Home. 
The members of the clubs feel that the latter was the most successful of the year. 

Another notable feature on this year's schedule was the concert given by the 
clubs, Mme. May Fogg Benedict, Milo E. Benedict, and Mrs. May Rees Cance. 
It was intended that tliis concert should replace the annual concert given in the 
Amherst Town Hall. The entertainment was a huge success and will without 
doubt become an annual affair. 

As to the program, the individual acts deserve much credit. Erie Weather- 
wax has added to his collection of readings and pantomimes and holds his audience 
with undivided attention. The quartet composed of "Hank" Darling, "Jim" 
Williams, "Buddy" Frost, and "Rus" Noyes also rendered several numbers 
worthy of not a little credit. The trio selections by Loring, Perry, and Wood also 
added much to the program. 

In addition the clubs were fortunate in securing the services of Ivan T. 
Gorockhoff of the Smith College faculty as coach. He is indeed an accomplished 
man and the bearing and technicjue of the clubs bear witness to his constant ef- 


forts. Much credit is also due the leaders and manager of the clubs, "Ken" 
Loring, "Rus" Noyes, and "Kip" Belden. They carried the burdens of the or- 
ganization and certainly fulfilled their obligations in a creditable manner. 

AVhile the clubs have doubtless experienced seasons more successful when 
viewed from the .standpoint of finance or number of concerts held, the season of 
'23-'24 will stand unique as the one with the best skill and esprit de corps on the 
part of the members.

THE organization of the Debating Society in the spring of 19^23 marked the 
beginning of a new epoch in the history of this activity on the campus. Ben- 
jamin Gamzue '23, was the moving force in the formation of the society. The 
membership is made up of those who have taken part in a Varsity debate, either 
as speaker or alternate, and the student manager of debating. Men eligible for 
the society were Gamzue, Gold, and Sandow of '23, Dimock 'ii. Batal, Church, 
Guterman, Taube, and Ward of "25, and Dodge '26. These were all elected char- 
ter members and officers for the following year chosen, President, Ward; Vice- 
President, Guterman, and Manager, Dimock. 

A debate with the University of Maine was arranged to be held in Amherst 
during the first part of 1924. With this debate, the Triangular debate in the 
M. C. R. I. Debating League, and one or two debates with Western teams touring 
the East, a better year for debating was looked forward to. But things did not 
materialize as hoped for. The Manager resigned and the President had to be 
appointed to fill the position. Then the Triangular League was dissolved by the 
withdrawal of Rhode Island. When the call was sent out for candidates for the 
team, there was not enough response to fill the positions on the team. The men 
on the teams last year were too busy with other activities. 

The Society thus spurred to action found two Freshmen Haskins and Pickens 
who had done well in their dual debate with Williston Seminary and were willing 
to try for the team. With Dodge and Ward and the two Freshmen to constitute 
the team, the outlook was more hopeful. However Dodge's health broke and 
another Freshman, Harris was found to take his place. The debates with teams 
from the west failed to materialize and others had to be found in their stead. 

The debate with the University of Maine took place in the LTpper Memorial 
Hall on the evening of February 18th before a large audience. The subject for 
the debate, as in the subsequent debates, was: Resolved, that the United States 
enter the World Court of International Justice. The M. A. C. team upheld the 
Negative side of the question, as in the subsequent debates, and put up a strong 
argument. However, the Maine team won by a vote of two-to-one. The follow- 
ing week the team met Boston University in Jacob Sleeper Hall in Boston on Mon- 
day evening. The oratory of the Bostonians won the contest for them by a 3 to 
vote from a doctor, a sanitary engineer, and an attorney. That Friday a third 
debate was held at Springfield with the Y. M. C. A. College. Here again the 
team lost by a close two-to-one decision. 

On March 27 and 28 a two man team will go up into Vermont to debate Mid- 
dlebury College and the University of Vermont. Both of these contests promise 
to be very interesting and close in the results.

HE Roister Doister Dramatic Association was formed and named on Octol^er 
19, 1916; the name being derived from a pre-Shakespearian Morality play 
"Ralj)li Roister Doister" by Nicolas Udall. It was the first English comedy and 
was written in 1550. The aim of the association is to foster and enconrage 
dramatics at the Massachusetts Agricultural College. Membershi]) is open to 
any four-year student and is automatically obtained by participation in one show. 
Previous to 1916 we find a spark of dramatic interest in 1910 when the 
M. A. C. Dramatic Society was formed and presented "The Private Secretary" in 
Amherst, Montague, and Ware. In 1912 we find renewed interest and the adoi)- 
tion of the name "Roister Doister". This organization, the "Roister Doister 
Society" presented one play a year until 1914 when both "Mr. Kelly from Kala- 
mazoo" and "The Comedy of Errors" were produced. In 1915 the only musical 
comedy in the history of the college was written and produced here — "Pluto's 
Daughter". In 1916 the name "Roister Doister Dramatic Association" was 
adopted and still holds. Under this organization the following plays have been 
produced : 

"The-Arrival of Kitty" (farce) — by Norman Lee Swarton. 
"Are You a Mason.''" 
"Officer 666". 

"Nothing But the Truth" (comedy) — by James H. Montgomery. 
"The Witching Hour" (drama) — by Augustus Thomas. 
"Student Vaudeville." 

"The School For Scandal" (farce) — by Richard B. Sheriden. 
"Clarence" (comedy) — by Booth Tarkington. 
"John Epps" — by Frank Prentice Rand. 
"You Never Can Tell" (Pleasant play) — by Bernard Shaw. 
"A Successful Calamity" — by Clare Kummer. 
"The Truth About Blayds"— A. A. Milne. 

Also a dramatic recital of Ibsen's "The Doll's House" by Hortense Ncilsen 
was presented under the auspices of the Roister Doisters. 

In 1921 the Aggie Revue was enrolled as an annual production to take the 
place of the Fraternity vaudeville. The Aggie Revue is a class affair, presented 
the week before the final examinations of the fall term, and is usually com])rised of 
a series of varied and entertaining acts. It is under the direction of the Roister 

Unlike many, most we may say, of the activities on the campus the Roister 
Doisters is self-supporting and money-making. As a result of this the organiza- 
tion presented the Memorial Building with $^150 to be used in buying furniture for 


that building. In recent years it has come out of each production well above 
board on the performance given at home. 

The season of 1923 is marked with two splendid productions, "A Successful 
Calamity" by Clare Kummer, given at Prom time, and "The Truth About 
Blayds" by A. A. Milne given at Commencement. Besides presenting "\ 
Successful Calamity" at the college during Prom, the cast travelled to Stamford, 
Connecticut, where they met with singular success, and to Boston where the play 
was presented at the Elizabeth Peabody House. An afternoon performance was 
presented in charity to the children of that district of Boston, while in tlie evening 
it was presented before an audience interested in the college, its affairs, and its 
students. "The Truth About Blayds" presented but once at the college was ex- 
tremely well played, and represented something new in the type of play presented 
by the Association. 

This year the members are working on "Dulcy" by George A. Kaufman and 
Marc Connelly, to be presented at Prom. It is a three act comedy and relates to 
the difficulties experienced by the business man who has a loving wife that insists 
on helping him solve his troubles, by arranging a week-end party for all his busi- 
ness associates. 

It is intended that this account will convey some idea of the extent and type 
of work of the Roister Doister Dramatic Association, but there is more. The 
members are awarded small mask pins in recognition of their connection with the 
association. In the winter it is not unusual for the members to journey "en masse" 
to Northampton when a good production is staged there. The Association has 
been generous with the surplus funds and has weathered many storms. The 
time has come when there is no need of a plea for support. The college is inter- 
ested in the Association, as is manifested by the large numbers which report for 
every tryout. On the whole its productions have pleased the audiences and now 
there is no doubt that each performance is looked forward to with interest and 
expectation by the student body. We may expect a future of better dramatic 
presentation, with an ever increasing interest in an organization of much worth- 
while intent and sincere backing as its members and associates have enjoyed.

'^f}t College iSeiusipapet 

THE work of the Collegian is perhaps as little understood by the student body 
as the work of any other undergraduate activity. As long as the paper arrives 
every Thursday afternoon and does not contain too much advertising matter in 
proportion to the news the student body is uninterested in the "modus operandi". 
It does not consider the hours spent in gathering and writing news nor the labor 
of editing and making up the dummy. It forgets the work of the business staff in 
getting advertisements and in securing prompt distribution of the paper both to 
students and to alumni. It does not realize the time necessary to balance the 
books or to read the proof. This condition accounts for some of the fault-finding. 

The first attempts to inaugurate a college paper were taken about 1890 but 
the present form was not adopted until 1909. Since that time the calibre of the 
work has been steadily improving until at present the Collegian is recognized as 
a college newspaper of the highest class. The work is all done systematically and 
thoroughly and in such a manner that members of the board get either a complete 
literary or business training merely from the performance of their weekly duties. 
We have seen it stated that the man who is on the board of his college paper is one 
degree worse than the man who never goes out for any activity whatever. But 
it is probably true that a man on the staff of the Collegian needs more real ability 
than does a man in any other organization on the campus. 

Within the past few years the Collegian board has gone through a period of 
total reorganization. Members are now assigned to definite departments accord- 
ing to their individual abilities and each department head is personally responsible 
to the editor for the news in his field. This has lead to a greater feeling of respon- 
sibility and to better development of individualistic style on the part of the 
members of the board. 

The hardest problem with which the board has to deal is that of competition 
for the board. Altogether too few men enter the competition and many of them 
become discouraged and drop out before elections. This is largely due to misun- 
derstanding on the part of the students as to the work done. Many men under- 
estimate their own abilities and many more are unwilling to spend so much time 
and get such a small tangible reward. Competition is open yearly to both fresh- 
men and sophomores and at least twice as many men should take advantage of it. 

The Collegian is primarily a newspaper of the student body. It endeavors to 
set forth student opinion and to bring out student comments on student problems. 
Its success or failure lies with the student body. At its present stage it is consid- 
ered successful but its future lies with you.

W^ht ^ssie ^quib 

LIFE would be a pretty dull existence were there no expression of humor in it. 
Likewise a college campus without a comic publication would lack what goes 
to make up its life. Among men of college age and educational rank humor of a 
very sprightly nature flourishes and requires some sort of outlet. For this reason 
practically every college and university publishes a humorous magazine edited 
and managed by members of the student body. 

So the Squib serves as an organ of expression of this humor on the Aggie 
campus. It is one of the college academic activities, gaining a position on the 
Academic Activities Board in the college year of 1921-1922. Since then the staff 
has been able to put out a better magazine each year, one that has gained a more 
appreciative response from the student body. The issues published by the board 
in the past year are good testimonials of this fact, the magazine being on the 
whole, the best for several years. 

Beside fostering the humorous instinct of the student body, the Squib offers 
the student an opportunity to express his artistic ability. In this respect it has an 
advantage over the other college publications. That clever drawings are given 
rise to by such a magazine is testified to by the skillful work of Noyes '24 and Fras- 
er '26 in the issues of 1923-1924. 

A new aspect taken on by the Squib is its appeal to the "co-eds". For the 
past two years two representatives from the "Abbey" have been members of the 
board and have made important contributions to the success of the paper in that 
time. Many of their jokes are stamped with the "Abbey" atmosphere, thereby 
giving the general student body a conception of the life at Abigail Adams Hall, a 
conception which otherwise would be limited to a few. In this way the Sq}iib has 
come to be still more representative of the entire student body. 

When compared with other college comics the Squib stands on a high level 
in its type of joke. Not relying upon the "low" type of humor and not employ- 
ing personal references, it maintains a standard of humor not unworthy of the 
student body and a position as one of the academic activities.

'T~^RADrriON, the thing that forms tlie basis of lialf the life of a c'ollege. the 
-*- thingwhich the student body wishes toperpetuate,hasbeenthe force which has 
acted on the class of 102.5 to induce them to turn out this volume. The reason why 
it should be the Juniors who turn out this book is part of the tradition which has 
been handed down without any particular explanation. May we venture a guess 
at the reason in saying that the Juniors are supposed to iiave little to do other than 
resting in preparation for receiving the responsibility of the college from the out- 
going Seniors. Along towards its- second year in college, each class finds itself 
facing the problem of putting out the book and at the meeting of the class, it 
unanimously votes to put out a book without thought of cost or work which 
necessitates its publication. A perilous undertaking it is both from a financial 
and from a physical standpoint. To start with it is a fact that never has an issue 
of the Index come out financially above board and the cost of production increases 
without any increase in the amount that the student body pays in taxes. Physi- 
cally members of the board need to be absolutely fit to stand the nervous strain of 
getting the material "dragged out" of those who are best fitted to write it. 

From the insignificant-looking phamphlet put out by the class of '71, the 
Index has pursued its wandering career down through the history of the college, 
recording this history in a somewhat complimentary manner. Soon as the art of 
printing became more common, the books enlarged. Then they started to include 
fancy decorations with here and there a picture of a noted faculty member or some 
outstanding individual in the class; this idea grew into having the pictures of all 
the members of the Junior class. The expensive cloth bindings of the old days 
gave place to splendid leather bindings and it seemed as if each class tried to outdo 
the class before it. Cuts of every conceivable group were incorporated into the 
book; there was nothing in the college that was omitted. But with the tremen- 
dous rise in cost of putting out such a book there has come the tendency to cut 
down the book so that it may be put out at as low a loss to the class as possible. 
In cutting down on the number of things to be included we may have missed 
some of the things which it should contain, it may contain some things that should 
be left out: but the editors have striven to incorporate into this book those things 
which would make it as representative, as accurate, and as interesting to the stu- 
dent body as was in their power possible.
