HE trials we have had, the friends we 
have made, the pleasures we have 
experienced and finally the knowl- 
edge we have gained, are the factors 
that will come back to our memories 
as alumni of "Aggie." In preparing 
this volume, the editors have endeavored to foster the 
cherishing of these four years that so soon we will have 
completed, by making this an Index to our activities, 
as a class, in the true sense of the word.

pniLIP BEVIER HASBROUCK long stood at the entrance door of the 
-*■ college as its official guardian, — the Registrar. He had a great ambition to 
keep our scholastic standard high and to raise it higher. He was very impatient 
with persons who sent students here who would not be accepted elsewhere. Be- 
lieving strongly that a farmer required as fine a preparation for his career as was 
required for anj^ other, he resented the idea that a boy should be sent to us for 
training because he was not gifted with enough brains to enter some other profes- 
sion. So it was that the first official of the college with whom the student had 
personal relations inspired him immediately with a great respect for the institu- 
tion that he was entering. 

Very few teachers have ever made such an impression on generations of stu- 
dents. His was a sturdy character, yet with a great tenderness in it. AVhenever 
he saw contrition on an offender's face, he stopped addressing him as "mister" and 
called him "son". His patience was endless toward those who were striving 
against odds to better themselves. His students will always remember his pic- 
turesque phrases: "His chance is as good as that of the butter cat chased by the 
asbestos dog through the flames of hell", "Now son, you must fish, cut bait, or 
hold the bag." "There you go! You've swalloed it all, hook, bob, and sinker." 

No man ever had greater loyalty and love for our college. He resented any 
injury or insult to her more than a personal hurt. He became so excited at ath- 
letic contests that in later years he reluctantly remained away from the field, 
because the swaying fortunes of the team placed too great a strain on him. 
Every triumph of the college was a glory to him. 

The robustness of his convictions often made him seem impulsive. In 
reality his judgments were long and carefully considered. Above all things he 
was a just man. Many a boy began by fearing him and ended by loving him. 
No one ever failed to respect him. He grew up with the growing institution 
embodying its lofty ideals. His was a grand figure. May our college never 
forget him. 


I first knew Professor Hasbrouck when he was teaching mathematics and I 
was a freshman in college. As a teacher he had the art of making his students 
see clearly the subject he taught. He was tireless in his efforts to make his lec- 
tures clear. In return he expected a student to put thought and energy into his 
work. His test of a man's ability may have seemed severe but was usually tem- 
pered with sympathetic understanding. He was even more severe with himself. 
Putting his best into his work he was not satisfied with less than the best from a 

But I knew Professor Hasbrouck better in his work as registrar. In the 
office as in his classroom he gave his best effort. He was always ready to receive 
any student who had a fair plan to present and sufficient ability to give a fair 

assurance of meeting his part of the fulfillment of the plan. He felt it was not a 
kindness to admit anyone to college who was not prepared to carry the work with 
success and that it was a serious detriment to the classes in which the student was 

How often have I seen his rather gruff manner toward some student fade 
away and the fatherly interest and "Now, my son", take its place when the boy 
showed himself in earnest. 

One attribute I shall always remember was his ability to take a joke on him- 
self. It was after the AVorld War. Hundreds of the boys were coming back to 
college in the winter term. Some few expected all past deficiencies to be forgiven 
them. Credit was allowed them for a term's work, but actual deficiencies like 
debts of money were to be satisfied. One boy was told this in no uncertain 
terms. Instead of disputing further, he turned to the crowd of boys in the office 
and said, ''Well fellows, we are back home." A good laugh was enjoj^ed by 

It did not matter how well or how poorly he felt, his "Good morning" was 
always a hearty one. He was never known to speak of his own ill health without 
a smile as though persuading himself that it was a joke nature was playing on him. 
He never complained of being overworked, although I have known that he stayed 
until eleven or twelve o'clock to interview students at the opening of college. 

His courage was moral as well as physical. No matter how unpopular an 
idea was, he championed it if it were for the good of the college. Nor did he 
leave anyone in doubt as to his stand on any question. His courage and his 
humor were two outstanding characteristics. He never sought popularity, but 
it came because of these attributes. 

A truer friend or a more willing servant the College never had. 


Simplicity, quiet determination, capacity for hard work and loyalty to his 
job were characteristics exemplified daily in the life of Philip Bevier Hasbrouck. 
The intimate picture I have of him is that of a gracious, friendl^^ oflScial and teach- 
er who occasionally, when tired and worn by the routine duties of teaching and 
administrative work, sought relief through a friendly visit to my office while he 
attempted to quiet his nerves by smoking a cigarette rolled by himself. Through 
these visits, really conferences, I discovered why it was that students loved to 
call him "Billy". He was impulsive, frank, decisive and quick to recognize real 
worth. His administrative rulings were rendered promptly, finally, yet justly. 
I miss him, in fact we all do, but his memory will ever be precious to me because 
of the many lessons which I learned as I worked side by side with him over a 
period of several years.

Prcsiibent iSlasiEfactjuscttg Agricultural College 

IN June, 1924, Kenyon L. Butterfield laid down the task of administering the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College and accepted the presidency of the Michi- 
gan Agricultural College, his Alma Mater. He came to Massachusetts at the 
age of thirty-eight, then one of the younger college presidents in the country; 
he served this institution for eighteen years, and left only to undertake a no less 
difficult problem of constructive administration in education. 

In 1906 M. A. C. was doubtless on the eve of an era of expansion, as were 
nearly all agricultural colleges of the country; but who can say what the history 
of this institution would have been had the Trustees, following President Good- 
ell's death, selected a man of narrower vision or of less administrative ability for 
this important position.^ 

President Butterfield entered upon his service with the clearly defined and 
openly avowed purpose of developing a high grade agricultural college; an insti- 
tution which should study the fundamental sciences underlying the agrioiltural 
industry; which should educate leaders in the various agricultural professions as 
well as train skillful farmers; which should disseminate information concerning 
agriculture and the farm home to the thousands of people of the State who could 
not attend the College for resident instruction. 

Thus the work of agricultural research in all its phases was encouraged by 
President Butterfield. The curriculum of the four-year course was broadened 
and enrichened; graduate courses were organized; short courses were developed 
for those unable to pursue a four-year course ; and a comprehensive system of ex- 
tension service was developed. 

His administration was characterized by a broad understanding of the prob- 
lem of agriculture in all its phases; a rare capacity in the organization of projects 
and forces; and ability to discover and enlist capable associates for the work to 
be accomplished and to inspire their best efforts and cooperation in its successful 

His interest centered chiefly in the individual. He cared most for the welfare 
of the student, the teacher or the worker on the staff, the man or woman, the boy 
or girl on the farm. All his plans for the College and for rural betterment were 
with the one purpose of making conditions better for the individual. 

But his interest, his activities and his reputation were not bounded by the 
College or by the State of Massachusetts. For twenty-five years he was recog- 
nized as one of the outstanding leaders and prophets in the field of rural affairs. 
He was one of the first to advocate and plan for a nation wide system of Extension 
Service; he was one of the first to see the problem of the famer as one not pri- 
marily of production but as one of distribution. Moreover, he constantly stressed 


the fact that the rural problem is essentially a human problem and that the social 
conditions of the rural people are a significant and important factor. In recent 
years he defined the scope of the agricultural colleges as embracing the entire 
field of food supply, including production, distribution, consumption and preser- 

His forward look and his able leadership early made him not only a national 
but an international figure. In 1908 he served as a representative of the State 
of Mas.sachusetts to the White House conference in Washington to consider the 
problem of national conservation. In 1908 also he was appointed by President . 
Roosevelt as a member of the Country Life Commission. Associated v/ith him 
were Gifford Pinchot, Liberty Hyde Bailey, the late Walter Hines Page, the late 
Henry Wallace, Charles S. Barrett and W. A. Beard. The observations and sub- 
sequent report of this Commission accomplished two significant results; one was 
the universal acknowledgment that farming is a basic industry and as such is a 
dignified calling, worthy of adecjuate support and respect. A second was the 
emphasis on the fact that economic prosperity alone is not a sufficient foundation 
upon which to build a permanent agriculture. 

In 1913 Woodrow Wilson appointed President Butterfield as a member of 
the American Commission on Rural Credits which spent four months in Europe 
making a careful study of agricultural credit and cooperation. In 1918 President 
Butterfield was selected by the International Y. M. C. A. to take charge of the 
organization of vocational education among the overseas soldiers. In 1921 a 
commission was organized to visit China for the purpose of studying her educa- 
tional needs and reporting a desirable educational program for that vast Empire. 
President Butterfield .served on this Commission as the expert in vocational edu- 

We are now too close to the administration of tiiis great leader to be able 
adecjuately to evaluate his service to the college or to society. Future historians 
will accord him his permanent place in the development of American life. But 
without hestiation, we may characterize President Butterfield as a man of wide 
vision and of able leadership; a wise administrator and builder; a man of rare 
personal charm with firm moral convictions and high ideals; a champion of the 
individual, and an advocate of all good causes.

'' I ^HE flowering season is over — the ripened fruit is at hand. Past records 
-*- have told of merits of the harvests of former years. 1925 stock has been 
used in making the most successful football and basketball teams that "Aggie" 
has seen for over two decades. Tangible memorials to many classes have been 
attempted in tree plantings for many a year, but 1925 boasts of the only successful 
stand of sturdy specimens. The group of conifers at the northwest corner of the 
Goessman Laboratory will soon become a veritable grove to which '25 alumni 
may return and seek in retrospect to relive the memorable experiences of four 
eventful years. 

But the moment of departure does not lend itself to vaunting and boasting. 
The passing seniors wish to bequeath to their successors certain cherished stepping 
stones to success. Among these we list first the steps of Stockbridge Hall whereon 
abide the connoisseurs of fair women and the goddess of Nicotine. Next come 
the belfry steps of the Library on which repose the aching hearts and terpsichor- 
eans with throttled ambitions. For those of an insatiable emotional nature we 
leave the front porch of Wilder Hall on which the nocturnal Luna directs her 
guiding beam. Certain paths thru the orchard have proven of rare value in past 
autumns, and these we gladly leave to any who can reap the harvest. 

And now, "Old Aggie", we bid thee farewell! Under thy guiding arms we 
have learned to lose ourselves in generous enthusiasms and cooperate with others 
for common ends. Here we have learned to appraise everyman for his true 
worth, including ourselves. Here we have made life long friendships. May 
we ever remember and remain loyal to the words we have sung: 

"Till death, O Alma Mater, 
Still our guide and pattern be."

ilisitorp of ti)e Clasisi of 1926 

WE came, — to college; we saw, — the Registrar; we conquered, — entrance 
exams; and so one bright September day we all found our places in Bowker 
Auditorium and stood for the first time as an integral part of the student body, the 
class of 1926. 

'26 has always been a distinctive class, partly because of the sterling calibre 
of her men, and partly perhaps in self-defence. "Try it on '26" has been for 
three years the war cry of the faculty. Do you remember the intelligence tests 
we raced through, frenziedly trying to decide all in one moment whether if Asia 
was not a vegetable, we ought not to put a cross in the circle which was not in the 
square? And the agonized moments in Agriculture when we couldn't remember 
what you did with the front teeth of a cow or where Montana was.^ 

We have weathered every gale, and come out on top. The men of 1926 are 
the brain and brawn of Old Aggie. We have had our full share of class and col- 
lege triumphs. 

Our Frosh year was notable, after a trifling set-back in the matter of losing 
a few nocturnal sleeping garments, for the long swift splash '25 made as it hit 
Aggie Pond. And in the spring, the well planned and executed maneouvers of 
our warriors resulted in a decisive Sophomore defeat, so that we feasted at the 
Bridgeway and recounted dark and daring deeds. 

Sophomore year was practically a repetition of the year before, in victories. 
But not in studies, for we qualified under the swinging menace of "Billy's" iron 
weights, and we were the last class this loved and respected professor taught. 

And now we are Juniors and our achievements speak for themselves. Our 
teams, our activities, our governing bodies, — '26 is the mainstay of them all. 
Records, prizes, and honors are ours, so that the class may well be as proud of 
every man in it as he is loyal to that class. Do you think she's not a class to be 
proud of? "Well, you're wrong!"

This seems to be proved to those of us who have become inti- 
mately acquainted with Paul. His life is characterized by the 
three W's — Wim. Wigor and Witality — though he is inclined to 
be a little pessimistic about the outcome. Paul's only regret is 
that there are only twenty-four hours in the day, because he 
says that if there were more he possibly could live up to Mr. Red- 
man's freshman agriculture schedule without giving up his sleep.

"Andy " is a versatile athlete, whether tackling under the

one in a white chiffon or throw around a tray-full of Hash House 
specialties with equal dexterity. 

Above all, "And,y " is a true friend, ready to share his last

"Bake" came into the limelight two days after entering, when 
he subdued his opponent in the class wrestling bouts. He was 
immediately enlisted for the six-man rope pull. In "Fat " we 
have a good proportion of the strength of the class. But not only 
in athletics is his presence felt — ask the profs. His success lies 
in treating them all alike.

"Bake" started in at M. I. T., but nature's calling was too 
strong, so he came to Aggie to study Entomological and Smith- 
sonian habits. And he is successful as evinced by his repeated 
journeys riverward, and his disappearance on exam week; for. 
while we cram for finals. "Bake" is on his way home, having been 
excused from them. How you do it, "Bake" is more than we can

They say that Captain Brady nearly left us when he heard 
that Colonel Barber of the Boston School Cadets could not take 

'Twas but a step from the editorship of his high school paper 
to the managing-editorship of the "Collegian", and judging from 
his work on various newspapers, his next step will be to the staff 
of some syndicated news sheet, and thus widely read.

Coming to us as he did, alone, unguarded, and eager to learn, 
this scion of the Connecticut apple country has developed remark- 
ably. With his rather subtle humour, which now, in our latter 
years of college, we are beginning to comprehend, "Russ" first 
impressed us as rather an attempter at wit, then as a wit, and now 
looms up as an erabrj-onic Neal O'Hara or Ring lardner. We 
look to him for great accomplishments.

Harry is one of our enigmas. Behind a forbidding exterior 
there is a thoroughly likable and sympathetic personality. He 
is rarely seen and more rarely heard from, but we daresay North 
College will vouch for his noise-making abilities. Harry waits 
on the co-eds and as yet hasn't shown the slightest interest in 
them. But you never can tell; he may have a poker face.

"Some wear clothes, others are costumed". Peggy is always 
costumed. She is the essence of that elusive quality, femininity, 
and her laces and ruffles make even the most hardened cynic ad- 
mit that there are still in the world a few "girls as are really girls". 
Peggy has also a talent for the solution of Math problems that 
seems incongruous until you know her and realize the capability 
that is masked by the concealing charm.

The most glorious copper-bronze hair you've ever seen, and

her genuine friendliness and cheerful comeraderie would.

After staying at Syracuse University for two weeks, Jim found 
that it was too much of a trip to run over to Holyoke every Sun-

Jim is now weather purveyor and an embryo meteorologist, and 
chemistry is his chief hobby, — next to cross-word puzzles.

Have you ever seen a girl shivering before the wintry blasts 
as she hurried from Stockbridge to Wilder with her nose tucked 
deep down into the collar of her fur coat? Ah! That was Mary 
wishing she were back in sunny Florida, provided, of course, 
that the college and her favorite diversions of the Cider Press

Her chief regret is that there are not more class hours per day —

Every habitue of the Memorial Building knows this quiet and

less popular, for it is personality that counts, and his is a thor- 
oughly likable one. His activities have a wide range, but track 
seems to claim most of his attention, although he occasionally 
indulges in the well known collegiate sport of "fussing".

One of "Beagles" greatest achievements since he entered

from various baffled profs. To his mates he has been everything 
from President of Korea, to the owner of the celebrated Russian 
Sneeze-hound. "Beagle" is majoring in Entomology, whence the 
Ephemerida and Lasiocarapidae may furnish material for new 
titles for him. That "'Ent" is THE line for him, may be judged 
by his ardent effort last summer, keeping on the trail of the elusive

Buck should have lived in the days when a smile and the 
ability to turn an apt phrase, won lands and lovely ladies for the 
fortunate possessor, for his is the silver tongue and the winning

"Twinkle-eye.s" is quite a favorite with the "Hash House" 
inhabitants, but his North College training enables him to resist 
their subtle charms. Serving hash is not as serious an occupation 
but what he always has a cheery smile for everyone. 

When spring comes, this young man's fancy turns to thoughts 
of the diamond, but the rest of the year he retires to the depths 
of the dairv lab.

and is said to leave a string of broken hearts behind wherever

"Jimmy" divides his afternoons between the Chem Lab. and 
the cinder track. He has had considerable experience in the 
English Department, but has decided not to major there.

"Stan" believes that the best way to succeed is by remem-

name of "Sheik", but gives no information as to why and where- 
fore. Later he gave us a surprise when he chose "Farm Manage- 
ment" as his major — he says he is going to farm in far-away Cuba, 
the land of sugar-cane and senoritas. He is one of the strong 
silent ones who say little and explain less.

We nominate for the Hall of Fame Kid Cassidy because: she has

an unkind remark; she is the most popular co-ed in the class; and 
finally because her dancing and singing have been the joy of the 
spectators at all good campus shows.

Big-hearted, absent-minded Joey we know as a football, 
hockey, and baseball player, as Senate and Honor Council Mem- 
ber, and as a contagiously popular gent with a ready smile for 
everyone. He now fulfills the saying "The pen is mightier than 
the sword", being a master of the first, and a past-master of the 
second. His present tendencies and his run-down Big Ben make 
us wonder if there was not a "Laud of Nod" sector in France. 
May this little Marine go over the top all his life as he has here 
with us!

"Phil" is our champion strong-man, and has always been a 
stand-by in all species of class scraps. He specializes in all 
kinds of athletics and makes good at everything he tries his hand 
(or his feet) at. A good loser at all times, he seldom has to give 
in to anyone. "Phil" may not have an ear for music, but he has 
the facilities much in evidence.

"Peanut" comes to us from Arms Academy, a young and un-

healthy he is subject to hourly fits of "sleeping sickness". 
We expect that he will recover from that, but the one great query 
in our mind is — "Where did you get that shirt?"

he does it so well that he is now that imposing personage, the 
headwaiter. He has survived the storms of Physics and Botany 
without a scar, and is now one of the bright lights on the campus. 
He is to be our next year's Manager of basketball, and we know 
that the team he manages, together with his room-mate captain, 
will again cinch the N. E. Championship for old Aggie.

To refresh his mind from his studies, "Ernie"' reads widely. 
However, we must not mistake him for a bookworm. He is a 
member of our Champion Basketball Team, and shows the quality

although his smooth appearance shows him to be good material. 
When he does start, there will be no overtaking him.

"Nay, if he take you in hand, sir, with an argument 
He"ll bray you in a mortar". 
Wherever there is an argument this youth is to be found con- 
tributing with all his heart, and soul, — and hands. And "Ed" 
is different — as unique as are his arguments is the way he parts 
his hair. 

Unfortunately his favorite quotation is: 

"'Tis better to have loved and lost. 

Than never to have loved at all". 

You mustn't debate with a woman, "Ed". It's useless.

"Cy's" cheery laugh is recognized from one end of the campus 

to the other. His good nature is his dominant trait, and even 

when playing football he has a hard time to get down to scrapping. 

He spends most of his time in the Chem Lab, but when not there 

may be seen — or rather heard — calling for "A thousand" "W"'' 

Lead" and other mysterious articles of diet.

"Red" is a natural contradiction for his fiery hair belies his

Dean's office for three years, he is figured as somewhat of a

being killed.

Far among the stores of knowledge in the library is where 
"Phil" may usually be found. At times, he takes to the track 
to do his "Nurmi" and if perseverance means anything, he should 
outstrip the "Flying Finn" in days to come. 

His activities, however, tend more toward the mental side, 
and many hours he spends trying to dissect an insect's ej'elashes 
thru a microscope. And if eyes mean anything, nothing much 
should escape "Phil", no matter what its discription.

"Ducky's" mathematical mind demonstrates itself in the

one evening after a general shifting, put her books on the bed, 
hung her coat on the bookcase, and went to bed on the bureau.

And here we have one of the younger members of the Holyoke

end address in Holyoke. "Duke" has a weakness for composing, 
and some day, perhaps, he'll be listed along with Beethoven, 
Chopin, and the rest. He's another of the "landscrapers" and 
his artistic taste is finding a vent there as well as through his

Having exhausted the bull-festing material at the L'niversity

joined us in the fall of 1923. His subjects range from summer 
school pastimes to metaphysics and he has some profound 
thoughts on both. "Late to bed and late to rise " is a part of 
his philosophy and that is why he has to get to chapel via the

happy-go-lucky, spontaneous, irrepressible, synthetic wit — an 

appreciated philosopher. He might easily have been famed as a 

student but he majored in Chemistry. 

L'nder Doc Tietz' tutelage, he bids fare to rival the diminutive 

Doc as a man of research in a varied number of lines. As 

a prospector of affections, he has found gold in that fair vale over 

the mountain. 



Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 

1905; Microbiology; Delta Phi Gamma. 

I/illian claimed once to be the seventh daughter of a seventh 
daughter, but she loves to delude the credulous, so perhaps there is 
another explanation for the avidity with which she attacks Micro 
and Chera. She is the senior partner of the "Fitz-Huke Movie- 
Coers Corporation." 


Newton, Mass. Boston High School of Commerce 

1896; Agricultural Education; Class Basketball (2); Class 
Baseball (2); Index Board (3); Kappa Epsilon. 

It's 2 A. M. and "Al" is still studying. Why.' Because he 
says his brain will not function until midnight. "Al" sells college 
banners for a living and so we find that his motto is "Service, but 
don't take too much time looking at the goods". He is always 
afraid of flunking his courses, but you ought to see his marks. 


Dalton, Mass. Dalton High School 

1903; Poultry; Alpha Gamma Rho. 

Seven-thirty, a last hurried bite and a frantic rush to Chapel — 
seven-thirty A. M. and all's well, as Bill's at the door alternating 
between duty and sympathy. Although seldom seen outside of 
the class rooms or the cloisters of Stockbridge, where with true 
"Aggie" Spirit, he is irrevocably, day or night, bound in the pro- 
ductionion of something cleaner, his good humor apd keen wit is 
always welcome. 




Westboro, Mass. Westboro High School 

Animal Husbandry; Manager Varsity Baseball (3); Theta 

Carl took such a liking to the white-washing course last year 
that he has elected military and from now on will make a uniform 
appearance with the other embryonic Napoleans. Already he 
has a good start, being very proficient as far as the Nap is con- 
cerned. Hold her, Carl — she may not be a saw-horse! 


Jamaica Plain, Mass. West Roxbury High School 

1903; Landscape Gardening; Class Football (1, 2); Fresh- 
man Baseball (1); Class Baseball (1, 2); Squib (1, 2, 3); Index 
(3); Assistant Manager of Musical Clubs (2); Kappa Sigma. 

We became acquainted with him first through his paint brush. 
And it is through that same brush that he attained the art editor- 
ship of the Squib and Index. But this is not all, for he can blow 
a wicked blast on his trombone and we may some day hear that he 
is playing with Paul Whiteman. 


South Hadley, Mass. South Hadley High School. 

1903; Agricultural Education; Kappa Gamma Phi. 

Leo started in with '25, but took a leave of absence for a year. 
No one has ever accused him of swallowing the proverbial dic- 
tionary, but sometimes we wonder if he hasn't absent-mindedly 
consumed a Mount Holyoke directory. Anyway, if you want to 
know anything about the college or its inhabitants ask Leo, he 
knows 'em all. He is also an adept at throwing away pins, 
pickets and plumb-bobs due to two terms of hard work under 
"Johnnj' O." 




Natick, Mass. Natick High School. 

1905; Landscape Gardening; Freshman Football (1); Var- 
sity Football (2, 3); Class Sergeant-at-arms (1, 2, 3); Maroon 
Key (2); Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Kappa Sigma. 

This tall goodnatured son of Erin hails from Natick, that home 
of football players. It is quite easy to distinguish him from the 
rest of the team — "Do you see that man reaching for his helmet 
after every play."" That's Fat! During the winter he turns to 
vocal exercise and his deep melodious voice adds greatly to the 
Glee Club programs. 



Reading, Mass. East Boston High School 

1904; Chemistry; Manager Class Basketball; Alpha Sigma 


"Goody" received his early education in East Boston, which 

accounts for his ability in escaping finals. His chuckling laugh 

is always a sure indication that "Goody" is enjoying life, — in fact. 

his one great distress arose when the Creeper failed to deliver 

that daily letter. His favorite occupation is riding in the great 

open spaces on the back of a cavalry horse. 



Chelsea, Mass. Chelsea High School 

190.5; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1); Class 
Baseball (1); Varsity Baseball (2); Delta Phi Alpha. 

You have to look twice to find "Louie" in a crowd, but if you 
ever play against him in football, you won't have any doubt as to 
his presence. He's well concentrated, and though he isn't 
exactly imposing in stature, he rates well both on the athletic 
field and in the registrar's office. Ag. Ed. is "Louie's "excuse 
for studying. 



Auburndale, Mass. Newton Classical High School 

1903; Agricultural Education; Roister Doisters (1, 2, 3)- 
Manager Class Football (1); Theta Chi. 

On his arrival, Ted immediately set out and made a place as 
manager of the frosh football team. Since then his activities have 
been devoted to the development of his histrionic talent. Sev- 
eral times he has graced Bowker Auditorium with his presence 
and we can take it for granted that his successes will continue. 
Last but not least, his smiling countenance is often seen behind 
the counters of the New College Store of which he is a banner 



Milford, Mass. Milford High School 

1904; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1); Varsity 
Football (2, 3); Class Vice-President (1); Alpha Sigma Phi. 

The last of a line of famous Graysons, Herb has a big contract 
to live up to the family traditions. His strong hold in athletics 
is football, altho he has been seen now and then in a basketball 
suit. His real claim to fame, tho, is his super-special piano 
playing, and many is the night the Aggie Inn's patrons have been 
regaled by the harmonies issuing from the floor above. 



Hubbardston, Mass. North High School, Worcester 

1902; Animal Husbandry; Class Baseball (2); Index (3); 
Q. T. V. 

This corner stone of our class rolled up to the registrar's door 
one September morning in 1922, and has continued to roll ever 
since, for he is one of the fortunate few to sport a fliver. Besides 
his profound interest in flivvers and typewriters, Jim delves 
deeply into veterinary work, and someda.y we anticipate seeing 
the handle of D. V. S. attached to his already extensive title. 



Brockton, Mass. Brockton High School 

1904; Botany; Captain Class Football (1); Class Basketball 
(1); Interclass Athletic Board (1, 2); Varsity Football (2, 3); 
Varsity Basketball (2, 3); Class President (2); Captain Class 
Basketball (2); Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Gus is famous as the hard-driving, never-licked signal caller 
of the "Country Gentlemen", and as*, very active member of the 
1925 New England Basketball Champs. The same grim per- 
sistance, leadership, and intelligence he carries into class activities 
and into the classroom. Unusual personal charm, expert dancing, 
and a winning way in speech make him popular everywhere from 
the campus to the neighboring colleges and back by the way of 



Melrose Melrose High School 

1904; Pomology; Glee Club (3); Pomology Club (3); Alpha 
Gamma Rho. 

" — and the bullock fled from the China Shop to escape the 
flying glass." That was in the day of cheap beef, long before 
this fury of pent up energy broke loose with unrestrained vigor, 
to break up all undone work, defying the hands of the clock and 
the mandates of common sense, to jerk soda, wait on table, study 
and bustle up other odd jobs. 

Theology missed a minister, altho, it is partially requitted by 
hearing his voice from the choir. 



Springfield, Mass. Central High School 

1903; Agricultural Economics; Inde-\(3); Phi Sigma Kappa. 
Altho "Walt" is a very quiet fellow, he is always ready to 
participate in any sort of a good time. Walt's whereabouts can 
usually be determined when one hears a peculiar sort of a high 
cackling laugh for if there is one thing that is characteristic of 
only AValt, it is that laugh of his. Altho he is primarily a student 
(?), he has various other interests especially over the mountain 
and even as far as Springfield. 




Walpole, Mass. Walpole High School 

1904; Animal Husbandry; Glee Club (2); Class Hockey (2); 
Class Track (2); Class Football (2); Phi Sigma Kappa. 

He's "Hilly" by nickname and he's "hilly" by nocturnal incli- 
nation. Mountain climbing, he maintains, was ever a pleasant 
occupation. Carefree and happy, he is a champion disperser 
of gloom, having a wide range of optimistic views on life, love, 
and the pursuit of knowledge. Although a "Nutmegger" he is 
one of the "loyalest sons of old Massachusetts." 


"DIXC " 
Providence, R. L Technical High School, Providence 

1904; Chemistry; Freshman Baseball; Roister Doisters (2, 3); 
Glee Club (2, 3); Lambda Chi Alpha. 

"Dune" is addicted to the use of a miniature pipe-organ, and 
is also afflicted with an occasional deep base voice. However, 
the former isn't objectionable when he's asleep, nor the latter 
when he's awake. 

Abigail Adams is "Dune's" favorite historical character, and 
he is quite often seen worshiping at her shrine. As a chemist he 
makes quite a musician. 


Amherst, Mass. Montpelier, Ohio, High School 

Agricultural Economics; Class Basketball (1, 2, 3); Soph- 
Senior Hop Committee (2); Maroon Key (2); Phi Sigma Kappa. 

In Dave we have a man of rare ability as a basketball player; 
in the realms of music, — an accomplished saxaphone artist; in 
the realms of society, — a "Beau Brummel". An exponent of the 
proverb that "all work and no play would make Dave a dull boy" 
will account for his willingness for any fun, and for his sunny 
happy-go-lucky disposition. 



Brimfield Hitchcock Free Academy 

1899; Pomology; Vai'sity Cross country (3); Alpha Gamma 

Give this loyal son of the great open spaces a gun, a rod, a 
tent and he is truly contented. Since we have no forestry major 
he has picked pomology to keep him out of doors. Speaking of 
apples reminds us, "Stan" admits that Eve was made from 
Adam's rib, but he refuses to agree that a bone was pulled then. 
At any rate, he frequently "Dodges" over to Brimfield on a week- 


South Hadley Falls, Mass. South Hadley Falls High School 

Microbiology; Delta Phi Gamma. 

"Barbara and Lillian!" — "Oh, we're going up to Micro now" — 
"But there's a good picture tonight", — "Well, call for us after 
supper, well go ". 

That is a common conversation in the Abbey, for Barbara 
combines the seemingly opposite qualities of a good student and 
a movie fiend. But as in Lillian's case, the interests never seem 
to conflict. 


Everett, Mass. Everett High School 

1899; Entomology; Kappa Epsilon. 

If you want to know all about the wonderful football teams of 
Everett High ten years ago, ask "Jamie". He's the greatest 
arguer on the campus and can convince you that you are wrong 
no matter how certain you are of your facts. 

Jamie was in an argument with a Packard last summer and 
for once got the worst of it, and became a familiar figure on the 
campus with his crutches and cane. A good scout is "Jamie" 
in spite of his argumentation. 




Westfield, Mass. Westfield High School 

1903; Chemistry; Varsity Basketball (2, 3); Class Basketball 
(1, 2, 3); Class Treasurer (2, 3); Interfraternity Conference (3j: 
Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

A unique nickname and a unique man. Small in stature is 
this likable chap, but not in ability, for in the realms of basketball, 
chemistry, and finance he equally excels. He does not confine 
himself to this field, however, for he has been seen more than once 
in the great open spaces of nature — and the Mt. Holyoke campus. 



.\mherst, Mass. Mount Hermon School 

1903; Economic Sociology. 

Scene: Economics bookshelf at the library. 
Cast: Philip Johnson. 
Action: None but deep study. 
"Phil" can be found most of the time engrossed in some tough 
economics book at the library. "Phil" is always busy, and for 
that reason he's a hard man to get acquainted with, but he is a 
real friend to the few who really know him. 


Salisbury, Mass. Amesbury High School 

1905; Floriculture; Class Track (1, 2); Varsity Cross-Coun- 
try (2); Kappa Gamma Phi. 

Wes is a speedy lad, — on the track, of course. Abigail Adams 
has no charm for him. Smith and Mount Holyoke aren't even 
in his vocabulary. He does write letters, though, but maybe 
we'd better not say any more. He says that Floriculture is an 
economical major to be in, though of course we can't imagine what 
he means. 



Campello Hrockton High School. 

1904; Botany: Class Football (1); Captain Class Basketball 
(1); Class Baseball (1); Class Captain (1, 2): Interclass Athletic 
Board (1,2); Varsity Football (2, 3) ; Varsity Basketball (2, 3); 
Interfraternity Conference (3); Senate (3); Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Here's one of a pair in true friendship strong bound. 

Entrenched in our hearts, a warm place he has found, 

Our captain of football, our high scoring ace 

As basketball center, he's very well placed. 

Mighty leader in council, his weighty words down 

All foolish formed thoughts with calm and no frown. 

And yet he's quite human with many a flaw; 

His head and his heart are not free from all harm, 

For his ear's ever tuned to radio's jaw. 

And, northward, the campus holds romance and charm. 



1899; Farm Management. 

And here is the bane of the existence of the class of 1927. For 
proof, ask any sophomore who participated in last year's banquet 
scrap. His pet diversion is a private barber shop in North 
College, and pity the man who disturbs him while he is busy and 
also the one who gets in his way when the dorms have a battle! 


Reading, Mass. Reading High School 

1904; Vegetable Gardening; Class Basketball (1, 2); Varsity 
Football (2); Varsity Basketball (2, 3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

When he isn't buried in the intricacies and problems of mar- 
ket-gardening, smiling George can either be found on the basket- 
ball floor where he is a veritable fool at shooting baskets or some- 
where on the Mount Holyoke Campus upholding Aggie's repu- 
tation with the fair damsels of that institution. If George proves 
as versatile in business as he has been in college, he will enjoy the 
success he deserves. 




Stow, Mass. Stow High School 

1905; Pomology; Collegian (1, 2, 3); Glee Club fl, 2, 3); 
Orchestra (1, 2); Squib (3); Index (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. 

Jack, altho quiet by nature, makes plenty of noise on his type- 
writer. He is continually running something off for one of the 
three publications of which he is a member. His literary ability 
has stood the class in good stead, for his knack of putting thoughts 
and actions into words have helped to fill the pages of this volume. 
Jack also is a budding musician, and he undoubtedly will blossom 
forth one of these days, to rival some of our present day artists. 



Fairhaven, Mass. New Bedford High School 

1904; Pomology; Class Basketball (1, 2); Varsity Basketball 
(2); Maroon Key (2); Alpha Sigma Phi. 

Hatties prosperous appearance makes us wonder why he did 
not chose the career of an alderman instead of that of a pomologist. 
He divides his time between the Pom Lab and the basketball 
court, where he has achieved considerable fame as anchor back 
on the twice-champion class basketball team. Not infrequently 
he dons his other shirt and tie, and seeks recreation at the far 
corner of the campus. 


Westfield, Mass. Westfield High School 

1894; Farm Management. 

George spends many a heart-breaking hour trying to clean 
up the wreckage left after the South College army has made a 
raid on North College, of which he is janitor, and a lot more time 
jerking sodas at the Candy Kitchen. He invariable has a 
collection of books under his arm, but is always so busy that we 
are still trying to puzzle out how he finds time to use them. 
George's pet hobby is the Cosmopolitan Club. 



Roxbury, Mass. Boston English High School 

1905; Chemistry; Freshman Show (1); Squib Board (1, 2, 3); 
Circulation Manager, Squib (3); Class Baseball (9); Kappa 

"Does that look alright?" Herbie was adjusting someone 
else's tie getting ready for a dance. "Herbie" is a real communist. 
If you don't believe it, ask his roommates. Remember the 
beautiful swan dive he made in the Aggie Revue his freshman 
year? And how he does love his books! He says they make 
fine kindling. "Herb" ought to fit well with the profs, for he 
feeds some of them three times a day at the Davenport. No 
wonder he passes his courses! 


Rockland, Mass. Rockland High Scliool 

1902; Agricultural Economics; Collegian Board (2); Band 
(2); Theta Chi. 

Many are the fellows who have listened to "Slip's " advice 
which he bases on his wide experience at Northeastern, from 
whence he transferred. He has had his time well taken up with 
the R. O. T. D. band, the Glee Club, and the Collegian. The 
New College Store claims his spare time and he is forever wishing 
that the days were twenty-four hours longer so that he could 
get a chance to sleep without cutting classes. 


Ashburnham, Mass. Drury High School, North Adams, Mass 
1905; Chemistry; Squib (1, 2); Delta Phi Gamma. 
Appearances are deceptive. Majel goes across the campus 
absorbed, aloof, grave, and formidably clever. And you look 
at her and think, "She must be very solemn and serious." She 
isn't. She has the wickedest sense of humor now extant, and a 
spirit of genuine friendliness that makes her a delightful com- 
panion and a steadfast friend. 



Dalton, Mass. Dalton High School 

1905; Farm Management; Class Baseball (1); Sigma Phi 

"Al" brought to college a ready wit, a sonorous voice, radi- 
cal ideas regarding the cut system, and an unnatural love for 
sleep. He is our nearest approach to Romeo, and has endeared 
himself to the sweet young things of Skidmore. Oberlin. B. U., 
and of course, our neighboring institutions of learning. His 
winning personality and his desire to forge ahead in this old 
world, will surely make of him a great Mann. 


Stoughton, Mass. Deerfield Academy 

Farm Management; Maroon Key (2); Class Treasurer (1); 
Assistant Manager of Baseball (2); Kappa Sigma. 

By his walk, his chuckle, and his optimism do we know "Mac". 
Stoughton claims him but Deerfield Academy made what he is 
today. "Mac" is a great booster for the Abbey and looks for- 
ward with great pleasure to the "Friday Night" dances. He is 
majoring in An. Hus., but admits he doesn't know "B from a bull's 



Brockton, Mass. Brockton High School 

1904; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1); Varsity 
Football (2, 3); Hockey (1, 2, 3); Varsity Baseball (2); Maroon 
Key (2); Class Baseball (1); Senate (3); Alpha Sigma Phi. 

Small in stature for a college football player, Buddy stuck to 
his job of punting and proved a big asset to his team. He never 
played hockey before coming to Aggie, but so naturally did he 
faH'into that sport that he was elected captain for his senior year. 
Buddy is quiet, but you could hardly call him slow! 


Amherst, Mass. Amherst High School 

1901; Agricultural Education; Roister Doisters (2, 3); 
Clothes make the man, according to an old adage, and at that 
rate we have here the ultimate in the evolution of the human 
species. Though he gets no pay for the job, Johnnie is a walking 
advertisement of "Kuppenheimer good clothes". John has a 
passion for reading, with a special weakness for the works of Mrs. 
Post, and his own attempts so far indicate that Aggie will some 
day be able to number among her graduates at least one famous 
literary artist. 


Taunton, Mass. Taunton High School 

1903; Agricultural Economics; Glee Club (3); Track (1); 
Junior Prom Committee (3); Advertising Manager, Squib (3); 
Index (3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

Long, lean, lanquorously lithe, the exemplification of Hickey 
Freeman and the Brooks Brothers, "Bay", with a rush, pro- 
ceeded to make a name for himself among the fair sex. With 
his silver-sweet tenor he has given the Glee Club an added repu- 
tation, and with his winning ways, the Abbey great material for 
discussion. Long (and he certainly is) may this son of Taunton 
score the successes he has scored here. 


Natick, Mass. Natick High School 

Varsity Football (2, 3); Class football (2); Glee Club (1, 2, 3); 
Alpha Sigma Phi. 

To see Chet meandering down the street with a book under 
his arm you would never imagine the aggressiveness of which he 
is capable. But set him inside of a football uniform and just 
watch him loop! Or wrap a tuxedo around him and notice how 
the fair ones fall. Chet and "Fat" Gavin are said to be the 
Mutt and Jeff of Natick, and might be taken for twins if they 
only looked something alike. 


Boston, Mass. East Boston High School and Girl's Latin School 
1904: HomeEconomics; Class Secretary (2); Delta Phi 

Elsie is a Dresden China Duchess, — dainty, dignified, and 
discreet. You may happen to know what Elsie does, but you'll 
never know what she thinks, for she has "the gift of lovely 
silences." For all that, she is no recluse, but in on all the fun 
that's going, and if you ask any co-ed about her, you will invari- 
ably get the reply: "Elsie.^ Oh, she's a dear". 



Brimfield, Mass. Hitchcock Free Academy 

1902; Pomology: Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Leader Glee Club (3); 
Lambda Chi Alpha. 

"Children should be seen and not heard," but Roy has long 
since ceased to be a child. Wherever the Glee Club goes he is the 
center of attraction, rivalled only by J. Rastus. 

Old friends are said to be the best, and Roys pipe is his best 
friend. Don't judge a man too severely by the company he keeps 
though, for Roy may yet be vice-president! 

Roy is conscientious and a hard worker, and we are sure he 
will some day make a success in his chosen line of growing the 
Appleus rubrus. 


Amherst, Mass. Amherst High School 

1904; Landscape Gardening: Delta Phi Alpha. 
Here we have another of Amherst's sons. Evidently he does 
not think much of Amherst, for he spends every vacation in New 
York. Take your time, Leo, you have a couple of more years in 
college. But then, love is — . 

Leo is majoring in Landscape Gardening and he is often seen 
in Wilder Hall at about midnight trying desperately to catch up 
in his work. Some day he'll catch up with it and then watch him

Ray isn't a decided blonde, — he was born that way. He was 
also born brilliant, and though he does hate to waste the mid- 
night kilowatts, still he drags down marks that the rest of us all 
envy. As a mechanic, he can drive a Willys-Knight, one-hand. 

His ambition as a landscraper should some day put him in 
"Who's Who" with Johnny O. and the rest of the notables.

key (2, 3); Theta Chi. 

Cary has high aspirations to show the farmers of old Vermont 
how to "do their stuff", and delights in running down plants for 
Prof. Michaels. The trying position that he has as co-ed waiter 
does not seem to ruffle the equanimity of this youth. Cary's 
favorite sport is getting in front of a hockey net and stopping the 
puck with any part of his anatomy, even his chin. Quoting from 
one of the Boston papers Cary "is fast on the ice and carries the 
puck well". 


Longmeadow, Mass. Central High School, Springfield 

1903; Home Economics; Y. W. C. A. Cabinet (2, .3); Delta

Another Home Ec. major; and surely "There's a reason" in 
this case, for in a few years we expect to see Betty presiding over 
one of those little vine-covered cottages the story books tell us 
about. Life should always be kind to Betty, for she has a won- 
derful disposition, and kindness and consideration for others are 
the keynotes of her character. Worry never seems to be a word 
in her vocabulary; even the difficulties of pie-crust; bias seams, 
and History and Government quizzes leave her happily serene.

.^Itho Red is very conscious of' his auburn-hued locks, he does

Meet the contributor-in-chief to "Ent. As We Know It", 
that book of amazing and esoteric insects. Ruth has also written 
a series of short skits, which invariable call forth shrieks of badly 
stifled mirth in the silences of classroom and Assembly, and her 
additions to Peggy's Fables in Slang have initiated whole epi- 
demics of giggles. For the rest, to Ruth can be applied that 
phrase which is the essence of perfection; "You can always trust

In this quiet, modest, unassuming youth from Holyoke. 1926 
has a staunch supporter and loyal friend. "Ernie" drifted into 
our midst only after he had become convinced that it would be 
more interesting to study Pomology at M. A. C. than Greek at the 
U. of Vermont. His frequent visits home (.'), however, suggest 
another reason. We all wish him the best of luck.

It took a broken arm to convince "Charlie" that he was not 
destined for varsity football, but he was undaunted, and now, 
from a point "six or seven" feet in the air, he surveys the world 
and supervises the progress of a number of activities. 

If you really want to know him, just make inquiries at a cer- 
tain nearby college, where he is said to be fully as well known as 
he is here.

Enter the owl who sees much and says little. "Ribby" took 
a taste of Bates and then one of Aggie, in IQ'Sl, but didn't like 
either. The call of Amherst was too strong, tho, and he came 
back in our sophomore year and joined us. He isn't seen much 
about the campus, but perhaps if you had a wife and home in 
town you wouldn't waste much time about campus either. Yes, 
it's true. Mrs. Ribero is here.

If you ever hear of any account of deviltry, j'ou can be sure 
that Jimmy is in it somewhere. He has played varsity baseball 
for two j'ears, as class wit he certainly upholds his title, and is a

ing us how to act, for he has been in the Aggie Revue and the

In spite of his size ll's "Ham ' gets around remarkably well, 

as his colleagues on the football field will attest. But next year 

"Kid" is going to change "Ham" from end to tackle so that he will 

not tear up the ground so much when going down under punts. 

"Ham" stands ready to aid in all class affairs, their nature is

1901; Pomology; Class Hockey (2, 3); Interfraternity Con- 
ference (3); Q. T. V. 

"Robbie" came to us from Hanover, up where men are men 
and women are hard to find. Now he is engaged in stalking 
the elusive apple in its lair up by the cold storage plant. In the 
meantime, however he finds time to break a few records on the 
bowling alleys in the "Mem" building. 

Practically his only other vice is the continual puffing of a 
fuming cigarette, while frequently he climbs into "Monty" 
White's "before using" paint advertisement, and goes over the

"Ed" firmly believes that "Silence is golden". L'nlike many 
theorists, he puts his theory into practice. However, his once 
habitual armor of reserve has finally been pierced, and "Ed" now 
becomes occasionally voluble and expounds his views of life, love, 
women, and beauty (both feminine and natural). It is only fair 
to say that the last mostly concerns the beauty of nature for 
"Ed" is learning to be one of the rising young "Landscrapers". 




Ware, Mass. Ware High School 

Agricultural Economics: Class Football (1, 2); Varsity Foot- 
ball (2, 3); Junior Prom Committee (3); Soph-Senior Hop Com- 
mittee (2). 

After spending all the summer of 1922 hunting the elusive 
Ware "alligator", "Rollie" reluctantly gave it up as a bad job and 
decided to come to M. A. C, where his strapping form became 
conspicuous on the football field and basketball court. Rollie 
soon realized that studies were of equal importance with campus 
activities and consecjuently went into hibernation; but he was 
not forgotten for he was elected to both Soph-Senior Hop and 
Junior Prom Committees. "Roll" is one of the best, good luck 
to you, "Butch". 


Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 

1904; Agricultural Education; Roister Doisters (1, 2, 3); 
Class Secretary (1); Delta Phi Gamma. 

Peggy told someone once that her grandfather was the first 
President of Scotland, but you needn't believe it, She is the co- 
star of the Abbey Artistes (Peg and Kid, Inc.) — a lovable star 
with dancing feet, a quick tongue, and a devastating pair of eyes. 
In Home Ec. labs, she blarneys her pies into unparalleled per- 
fection, and in the Abbey her war cry of "I want a !i-yun" domi- 
nates even the eternal "Quiet Hours"! 



Winchester, Mass. Winchester High School 

1904: Poultry; Lambda Chi Alpha. 

Meet "Abie" Simonds, the Sheiking Shylock. Henry denies 
his suspected ancestry. But it is futile in the face of certain of 
"Doc" Torrey's theories concerning characteristics. 

"Hen" aspires to big things in the line of an agriculturalist, 
but is majoring in a special course at an educational institution 
in South Hadley. He is also rumored to be taking a correspon- 
dence course with Rudolph Valentino, whom he threatens to 
eclipse in time. 



Worcester, Mass. South High School 

Pomology; Freshman Basketball (1); Varsity Baseball (1, 2); 
Varsity Basketball (2, 3); Maroon Key (2); Alpha Sigma Phi. 
This little flash from Worcester has been an indispensible unit 
in basketball and baseball ever since he arrived at Aggie. How 
such a tiny lad can so successfully keep the ball from even speak- 
ing distance of the basket we have never quite been able to figure 
out, but he does it, and that's what counts. The opposing 
pitchers have to bowl to him in order to put over a strike. 


Taunton, Mass. Taunton High School 

1899: Landscape Gardening; Women's Student Council (2); 
Delta Phi Gamma. 

"Peg" succeeds Emily next year as Dean of the Abbey Smith 
Family. Majoring in Landscape, she spends much of her time 
locating the elusive contour and reading a mean transit. Effi- 
cient, fun-loving, and above all dependable, Peggy is a friend 
worth having, even if she does occasionally stun you with a casual 
reference to an "Ampelopsis heterophylla" or something like that. 


Millbury, Mass. Gushing Academy 

Agricultural Education; Varsity Football (2, 3); Glee Club 
(2, 3); Business Manager of Index (3); Phi Sigma Kappa. 

The W'orld War, Worcester and work wearied Myron, so he 
came to Aggie, where he found the chemical and water warfare 
in Xorth Dorm much to his liking. His keen wit and his spirit 
of independence we know and admire; we like his singleness of 
purpose and overlook his being single on purpose. As a lover of 
work and a lover of fun he has few equals, and as a general main- 
stay and particularly as Business Manager of the Index he has 
been one of the class's most loyal members. 




Salem, Mass. Manchester High School 

1903; Floriculture; Class Debating (1); Index (3); Manager 
Class Track (2); Floriculture Club (3). 

Enter Ray Smith, hero of many a hard-fought Phys Ed class 
and aspirant' for the honors of Phi Kappa Phi or I Tappa Keg, 
or some one of those mystic organizations so often read about and 
so seldom seen. Ray started out as a debater and a track man, 
but finally decided would fit better at the further end of the cam- 
pus. Hence, when the twilight shadows commence to do their 
stuff, Ray whets his Auto-strop, shakes the dust off his shoes, 
and — sometimes goes to the library. 


Westport, Conn. Staples High School 

1903; Floriculture; Varsity Track (1, 2, 3); Class Basket- 
ball (1, 2); Varsity Relay (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. 

The fastest man in college, — but we don't mean to have you 
go to the Abbey for references. He thinks nothing of winning 
whole track meets all by himself. "A letter in every meet" was 
his motto last year, and he surely lived up to it. 

Despite the obvious lure of the cinder track, his record in the 
Registrar's office shows him to have a promising future in the 
sweet-scented fields of Floriculture. And, meanwhile, he makes 
or breaks our chapel attendance records. 


Brimfield, Mass. Hitchcock Free Academy 

1905; Agricultural Education; Glee Club (3); Class De- 
bating (2); Burnham Declamation (2). 

The thriving metropohs of Brimfield sent this son to us, and 
poor "Ray ' couldn't resist the call of the wild — we mean domestic 
— animals for long, so he got a job as a milker during his freshman 
year and spent last year as chaperone to a dozen or so females of 
the bovine species at the Hatch barns. This year, however, he 
decided to become a vegetarian, and now holds down a janitor- 
ship of Clark Hall. He has a weakness for certain company at 
the Second Congregational Church, but we don't know just how 
many times he has been caught. 



Xeedham, Mass. Swampscott High School 

1905; Agricultural Economics; Interfraternity Conference 
(3); Glee Club (2, 3); Collegian (1, 2, 3); Kappa Sigma. 

•Joe College himself — a man whose clothes and words are al- 
ways quietly right, and whose line makes even the Indian on the 
telephone nickel grunt in admiration. At his word the student 
body rises as one man and crashes out the "Long Yell" in unison 
with his agile gyrations, for Steve is our champion cheer leader. 



Xewtonville, Mass. Newton High School 

1903; Agricultural Economics; Class Hockey (1, 2); Class 
Track (1); Varsity Track (2) ; Varsity Hockey (3); Theta Chi. 

"Bill" is another of our long list of Newtonites, and character- 
istically he can't seem to forget it. He is blessed (he says cursed) 
with a line, the fluency and potency of which is beyond description. 
Majoring in Economics, "BilTs" courses and his nature seem to 
fit remarkably well. He is as much at home on the dance floor 
as on track or rink. 



Fall River, Mass. Durfee High School 

1903; Biology; Collegian (2); Alpha Sigma Phi. 

"Charlie" is a full-fledged Laboratory-hound, and may be 
found at all hours of the night exploring the unknown realms via 
a microscope. Life is a serious thing to "Charlie" and fussing is 
an intangible something off in the fourth dimension and beyond 
his comprehension. 

This youth started to major in Phys. Ed., but forsook "Red" 
Ball to become a disciple of Doc Torrey. We certainly wish him 
all kinds of success. 



Amherst, Mass. Amherst High School 

1902; Agricultural Education; Varsity Football (2, 3); Class 
Football (1); Class Basketball (1); Varsity Basketball (2); 
Kappa Sigma. 

Another member of the Brooks Bros. Campus Club — this 
time an athlete with a marked penchant for off tackle runs. An 
"Aggie Ed" shark, he swims thru the troubled waters of psy- 
chology and other courses with the ease every shark finds in his 
natural element, and when he isn't studying, he plays a brand of 
football that makes even "Kid" Gore grin. 


Stonehara, Mass. Stoneham High School 

1903; Landscape Gardening; Class Baseball (1, 2); Class 
Hockey (1); Q. T. V. 

Buck's favorite indoor sport is going to church. We are won- 
dering if this indulgence has any connection with his wide 
acquaintance among the young ladies of Amherst. Of course 
Buck won't admit such acquaintances but just walk uptown with 
him some day and notice the sweet smiles and shy greetings 
showered on him by passing flappers. 


Shelburne Falls, Mass. Arms Academy 

1905; Chemistry; Varsity Baseball (1, 2); Class Basketball

Q. T. V. 

Here we have a man of action and few words. One has but 
to glance over the sports section of one of the daily papers, or, 
better, to attend a basketball or baseball game, to see where 
Johnny shines. And to confound the critics who say that brain 
and brawn do not mix, he is one of the class's leading candidates 
for Phi Kappa Phi.

It took more than the desire for a ride on the snake line of the 
B. & M. to drag this gay Lothario from Back Ba.v and Oak Bluffs. 
"Al" hoped to be Olmstead's only competitor for the supremacy 
of the Landscape Architectural field, so he left the college on the 
hill and the sea to further his ambition at M. A. C. "Al" has 
the usual college diversions and is often seen boarding a. street 
car for Mount Holyoke and Smith. 


Shelburne Falls, Mass. Arms Academy 

1903; Entomology; Varsity Track (1. 2); Class Basketball

"Jerry's" propensities for argumentation are astounding. 
His efforts in behalf of the military department were unending 
during his first year of drill. He even gave the R. O. T. C. a 
liberal translation of the word "command". During his fresh- 
man year he proved his mettle by winning a letter in track and he 
is now striving for one in basketball. Everyone enjoys "Jerry's ' 
joyous laugh and his readiness for a good time no matter what the 
hour may be.

"His strength is as the strength of ten" sang the poet, not 
knowing how soon Tiny was to appear to fulfill the prophecy. 
He landed among us a carefree youth, and has since amazed us 
by his feats of strength and his ability to beard the math, profs, 
in their dens. His avocation is garnering "M"s to wear on his 
powerful chest.

Many a track meet has been won by the margin of Ed's high- 
jumping and pole-vaulting. He is up in the air so far to begin 
with that all he has to do is to step over and fall down on the 
other side. 

He is quite a soldier, and we understand that the co-eds greatly 
enjoy his buttons. He doesn't talk much, but he sure does 
get there somehow! 


Sunderland, Mass. Amherst High School 

1904; Chemistry; Class Football (1). 

This young giant wandered into Aggie from the onion and 
tobacco fields of Sunderland rather unpretentiously. He almost 
invariably is making use of part of the product of his labors sur- 
rounded by a piece of paper, and perhaps for this reason is a good 
imitation of the Spinx. He says little, but that little is usually 
worth while. 


1903; Chemistry; Kappa Epsilon. 

Charlie once read the story of "Notre Dame of Paris" and 
determined that he, like Quasimodo, would become a famous 
bellringer. He filled the capacity at college during his freshman 
year, and hence the nickname. The chapel bell turned his 
thoughts to words, so Charlie may now be found any Sunday 
evening leading some wandering soul to prayer meeting. His 
cheery "Mornin" helps make the day brighter for many a college 



Amherst, Mass. Kimball Union Academy 

1901; Agricultural Education; Kappa Gamma Phi. 
Here is "Joe Smooth" himself. Phil knows fussing from 

Alpha to Omega, and as a dasher he threatens soon to eclipse 

Old Man Sheik. It is rumored that Valentino would like to take 

lessons from him, but Phil doesn't want to teach such elementary 


As a student, Phil's claims are doubtful, yet unique. He 

holds the college record for cutting classes, especially those that 

come before breakfast. 


Stow, Mass. Stow High School

"Fran " has "labored and has been heavy laden " each fall of 
the last two years with all the varsity football equipment, but 
now he has risen from the ranks and can let George do it. "Fran"

From Bolton in the Nashoba district he has done his packing 
of peaches. Co-eds who wait for him, as he waits on them, 
should not take exception at another's accepting. He's in luck 

We like "EUy" and shall long remember him as a quiet, very 
busy and very efficient worker. He is unaccountably lost in the 
throes of a "Brown" pen, a seasoned romance, and a love for

A topless fliver full of bareheaded young men takes the corner 
on one and a half wheels, the driver smiling insouciantly the while. 
Look at him well, for that is Monty, the demon chauffeur, and 
at the same time the best soldier, the best dancer, and the prize 
fusser of his class, and one of the best anyway you look at him.

New-fallen snow isn't always as beautiful as the poets sing, 

for to Don it only means another work-out on the Hockey rink, 

in charge of a squad of freshmen armed with shovels. And Don 

wields a steaming shovel himself (on the hockey rink, of course). 
The coming of the mail-man is a great event in Don's life, and 

never fails to bring results. Incidentally, we enjoy his brand of

"Bert " was born in Fitchburg, but had seen the sun rise over 
the horizon of five cities in Massachusetts and eight cities in 
New Hampshire before he finally came to Amherst. In the 
intervals of making maps and studying surveys, he manages the 
Roister Doisters, and reads the daily letter from the girl in what 
he discreetly calls "one of his home towns ". "iVhich? Your 
guess is as good as ours!

Long, lean, limber Lecil is another product of the sunny South, 
but the reputation of New England was too much for him to re- 
sist. The bowling alleys occupy a good part of his time, though 
he collects money instead of spending it. That extra tall horse 
belonging to the military department was bought special for 
"Lease"' and we wonder if he will take it with him when he leaves 
Aggie as a U. S. Army Reserve Officer.

If you see a soldierly figure with a pipe projecting from his mouth and a column of smoke trail- 
ing behind him, you are probably gazing at Bob White — the fellow that hollers, "One Thousand —

change its name to "The Garden City".

Clas!£i 5|i2^torp, 1927 

IT was as a group of uninitiated neophytes that the Class of 1927 was herded 
together in the fall of 1923 by their trainers — the Class of 1926, and we had 
to learn to follow a straight and narrow path, any divergence from which might 
lead "over the dam". But submissive as we were at first, we showed our colors 
when it came to open competition. Our class games in our freshman year were 
highly successful. In football the proud '26's were forced to bow, and we proved 
a good match for the other classes in hockey and basketball. To wind up the 
season, a weary and battle-scarred class banqueted at Springfield as the victors 
of the "battle on the hill". 

When '27 returned to the campus last fall it was to administer justice to a 
herd of 180 freshmen. This year the nightshirt scrap was ours, as was also the 
six-man rope pull. We lost ground in the 60-man rope pull, but escaped the 
usual bath. 1927 won all its interclass hockey games this year, and was tied for 
second place in basketball. 

In varsity activities 1927 is well represented. "Joe" Hilyard is a letter man 
in football and Partenheimer represents us in basketball. Three '27 men were 
awarded letters in Cross-Country. In academic activities 1927 is omnipresent. 
The Collegian Board is nearly half sophomore and there are many "27 men in the 
musical clubs. The Roister Bolsters claimed three of us for last year's com- 
mencement show and there are two on the Prom Show caste. There have been 
'27 men on every debating team since we arrived. 

Every member of the Class of 1927 can, with satisfaction, say: "When I 
was a freshman, I behaved as a freshman, but now that I am a sophomore I put 
away childish things."

\ NOTHER September has come and gone. A new group of Freshmen have 
-^ *- entered upon a four year cruise at M. A. C. and may they not be found 
wanting when their Alma Mater calls for loyal support. It was with light hearts 
and still lighter pocketbook that we concluded our first week of college life; but 
we did not give a thought to such trivial affairs, when we had class scraps to look 
forward to. With the utmost pride we can claim our numerous victories over 
our so-called "relentless superiors", the sophomores. 

We commenced our victories on razoo night. Then proceeding in truly 
noble fashion, we succeeded in gaining a victory in the sixty man rope pull. 
The Sophs showed their supremacy in nightshirt parade and football, but we came 
back strongly in defeating them at basketball. Now, we are looking forward to 
the banquet scrap and, under the new rules which are to be enacted we hope to 
conclude a happy and successful year as Freshmen. 

Our resentment was keen when we realized that we must strain our noble 
voices in the chill air of the early morn. Moreover, it must have been more 
trying to our noble comrades of the Abbey. You can imagine how our sympathy 
went out to them, but it was of no avail. Roll call must be attended to, so thought 
the members of the Sophomore class, and the penalty for absence a bath in the 

AVe shall thus be up and doing. 
With a heart for any fate. 

Still achieving, still pursuing, 
On old Aggie shall we wait.

MAROON Key, the sophomore organization for the purpose of entertaining 
visiting teams, was instituted by Adelphia with the class of 1926. Using 
the societies at other colleges, such as Green Key at Dartmouth, Red Key at 
Cornell, and Key and Kite at Penn State, as models, Adelphia has endeavored to 
make Maroon Key a worthy addition to the campus organizations. 

Although the class of 1926 had little opportunity to work out a regular sche- 
dule of entertainment, owing to the fact that the members had no previous ex- 
perience to go by, they gave Maroon Key a successful initiation. The class of 
1927, using regular working schedules for meeting and entertaining teams and 
holding regular meetings, has made a permanent place on the campus for the 

Maroon Key is composed of ten sophomores, elected in the spring term of 
their freshman year. The members of the Board on Intercollegiate Athletics 
are honorary members. Active members in Maroon Key wear the white hat 
and watch charm insignia of the organization. 

Maroon Key will have a regular constitution this year, which will be handed 
on to the class of 1928 together with the interesting records of the Society.

TT is doubtful if there is any coach of varsity teams in New England who is 
-'- confronted with the difficult problem that faces our coach here at "Aggie", 
"Kid" Gore. There are very few high school and prep school stars who matricu- 
late at M. A. C to make a name for themselves on the gridiron or basketball 
court. In fact, the large majority of the men, who are physically able to partici- 
pate in sports, have had little or no previous experience. This situation is strik- 
ingly demonstrated by the fact that two of the past four captains of football had 
never played the game before coming to college. 

"Kid's" problem is to take the rugged green material and turn out a product 
that can compete with other colleges which are favored with a goodly number 
of well seasoned men. He attacks this problem with such vigor and ability that 
"Aggie" has every right to feel proud of its coach and its teams. It is the result 
of "Kid's" labors that the Maroon and White has established a reputation for 
always sending onto the field a clean playing, hard working, aggressive team. 
His ability to turn out winning teams is shown by the records of the teams he has 
coached. His basketball teams for the past college generation have produced an 
average of ten wins per fourteen game schedule, a record that any college coach 
might well envy. 

The following is a brief resume of "Kid's" activities since he first set foot on 
our campus in 1909. 

He was a member of the varsity football squad for four years, and made his 
letter the last three years as quarterback. He participated with his class track 
and basketball teams; there was no varsity basketball at that time. He gradu- 
ated from M. A. C. with the class of 1913. 

From 1913 to 1917 he was engaged as assistant in Physical Education and 
coach of Freshman teams here at the college. 

In 1917 he attended the Plattsburg Officers" Training Camp, and was com- 
missioned 1st Lieutenant of Infantry in November of that year. He was as- 
signed to the 18th infantry overseas, January, 1918. 

In May 1918 he was wounded by the premature explosion of a hand grenade. 
Later, he was gassed, while with his command in the lines at Cantigny. After 
leaving the hospital, he was assigned as Statistical Officer of Classification Camp 
at St. Aignau Noyers, from July, 1919. He returned to U. S. A. and was dis- 
charged in February, 1919. 

Since then he has been here at the college as: Assistant Prof, of Physical 
Education, 1919; Varsity Coach of Baseball, 1919-192''2; Varsity Coach of 
BasketbaU, 1917, 1919, 1921-1925; Varsity Coach of Football, 1919-1924. 

Those, who have played on his teams or against his teams, have the greatest 
respect for his ability, his ardent loyalty to his team, and his college, together 
with his other sterling qualities, have won for him a host of friends from among 
those with whom he has come in contact.

pasJeball ^ea^on 1924 

TN spite of the usual weakness on the mound, the 
-*- M. A. C. baseball team took five out of their twelve 
games last spring in what was unquestionably a much 
better season than that of 1923. Many of the games, in 
which the "Agates" failed to come out on top, were close 
as shown by the fact that the opponents total score was 
.59 against an M. A. C. total of ,55. 

Coach Grayson called the squad out even before 
basketball ceased to liold sway in the Drill Hall. After 
more than two weeks of indoor practice they took to the 
open with a squad of thirty-five, where they worked hard 
almost every day for the rest of the season. "Em" was 
faced with the problem of developing a team from a 
nucleus of five letter men, one of whom was a pitcher and 
one a regular catcher. The results have already been mentioned. 

The first game, on April 26, with Williams at Williamstown, proved to be too 
much as an initial game. The Agates were defeated 9-3 by a superior club. The 
teams seemed to start on an even basis and the score read one all at the end of the 
fourth inning. Aided by errors and erratic playing on the part of the "Agates", 
four runs crossed the rubber before the Williams team was retired. 

The second game, a much more creditable one, was with Dartmouth, who 
no.sed out the Maroon and White 4-3, on the Green's home field. Only some 
costly errors in the infield prevented a well-earned win. The hitting and base- 
running were of high order. 

The third game showed that the team was still improving, when, in its first 
home game of the season, it squelched Clark 13-3. The game proved to be a 
swatting rampage for "Em's" men who also played much tighter ball than in the 
two preceding games. 

The first Amherst game was played on foreign territory with disastrous re- 
sults, the score being 9-6 with Amherst on the long end. The game was loosely 
played thru-out. In the fourth and sixth innings, the "Sabrinas" scored eight 
runs, four apiece. The "Agates" made eleven misplays which offset the fact 


that they outhit their opponents and Amherst also had her slip-ups, altho not as 
frequently as the "Agrarians". A rally on the eight inning, however, served to 
add considerable excitement to the game. 

M. A. C. broke into the win column again, when they defeated Bowdoin, on 
Alumnus Field, 8-7. A third inning rally established a lead which held until 
the end of the game. Although the defense showed one hundred percent im- 
provement over that in the Amherst game, it slackened in the last inning, so that, 
coupled with a batting rally, the visitors made a strong bid for the game. 

The B. U. game, the third in four days, proved a disheartening one for the 
M. A. C. rooters. The visitors took the game to the tune of 7-1. Loose play in 
every department was responsible for this inundation. 

However, Nutmeg Aggies proved to be easy for the "Agates", after their 
tough luck in the three-game series. Again the play was loose, twelve errors be- 
ing the record of the Bay Staters, but Taylor held the Connecticut Agates to six 
hits, only two of which were timely. 

The team suffered its first shutout of the season at the hands of Wesleyan, 
the only "Little Three" team not met. Only one run was made after the first 
inning. Wesleyan drew seven hits to Aggie's three and made three errors to the 
latter's two, a creditable record for both clubs. 

Another tight contest was witli New Hampshire, who nosed out the Massa- 
chusetts aggregation 5-4. The Agrarians outhit the home team but lacked the 
punch to score when runs were needed. The work of the outfield is to be highly 
commended in this tilt. 

Brunner twirled the Aggie nine to a 5-1 victory in the second game with 
Amherst. He allowed the Sabrinas only three scratch hits and kept them so well 
scattered that only one tally resulted. The "Agates'" were held hitless for four 
innings until Cahill beat out a slow hit to shortstop. Temple and NicoU sacrificed 
him in for the first run. Another one in the fifth and three in the eighth while 
Amherst remained scoreless put the game on ice. 

The M. A. C. ball club took its fifth victory of the season from C. A. C. for 
the second time 6-3. The scoring started early, M. A. C scoring twice in the 
first, and once in the second. 

The last game was another 4-0 defeat by Wesleyan who were indubitably 
a better club than their opponents. 

Brunner and Taylor took the brunt of the pitching, Brunner taking two out 
of five, and Taylor three out of six. Both men did very creditable work, showing 
much composure under fire. "Bobby" Barrows and "Sug" Kane took care of 
the receiving end of the battery with "Johnny" Temple coming in from the garden 
occasionally. All three of these men played in the outfield, as well as "Milt" 
Taylor, when not in their regular positions, because of their invaluable ability 
with the stick. The initial sack was covered by "Buddy" Moberg, the keystone 
bag, by "Joey" Cormier, shortstop, by "Ray" Smiley and the hot corner, by 
Captain Nicoll. Other outfielders who figured were "Sammy" Samuels, "Jimmie" 
Richards, and Carl Cahill who, altho not a phenomenal hitter, is one of the best 
outfielders that any M. A. C. ball club has had for many years. Cahill's work in 
the outer garden earned him the captaincy for 1925. The team was a bit weak 
in defensive work in the infield, but the outfielders worked hard and few errors 
were made on long hits.

'HpHERE was not a conspicuous abundance of material for the Relay team 
-■- when the candidates were called out by Coach Derby. Captain-elect GifFord 
did not return to college, and this, coupled with an injury to another member 
of the squad, left holes to be filled before a balanced team could be obtained. 

The season opened with a triangular race with New Hampshire and Maine 
at the B. A. A. games, in which New Hampshire won and M. A. C. placed third. 
At the K. of C. meet we were defeated by B. U. by a close margin. 

After the B. A. A. meet, our rivals at Amherst, who had been defeated by 
Bates, decided to come down on our track and show us their heels. However, 
here the "Agates" dug in their spikes and the "Lord Jeffs" were returned the 
losers by a large margin. 

In our only indoor meet of the season we were defeated by Worcester Tech 
on Washington's birthday. The meet was close throughout and the deciding 
event was the relay, which the engineers won by a close margin.

^HE Spring Track team had one of the most success-

all of their dual meets, placed second to University of 
New Hampshire in the triangular meet, placed third in 
the Eastern Intercollegiates and scored three points in 
(he New England Intercollegiates at Boston, the most 
that any "Aggie" team has scored in this competition.

■P A w°T that was blowing across the field, nevertheless, the time 

W M^tai^^UV ^^ ^^^ ^^^^ events was very fast, and some hard fought 
1 ^^^H^^^Hf competition ensued. Sniffen was high scorer with 14 
points to his credit, but he was folllowed closely by Belle- 
rose of Norwich who garnered 13 points for his team. 

In the next dual meet of the season. Trinity was 
Captain Stevenson and Thurlow, two mainstays of the 
injuries, and it is probable that with them in the run- 
ning Trinity would have suffered a worse defeat. 

At the Easterns at Springfield, the "Maroon and White" surpri.sed many of 
her followers by placing third. This is the best that any M. A. C. track team has 
done against this group of institutions. 

Our old agricultural rivals. Conn. Aggie, came to Alumni Field, May 20th 
to receive a severe drubbing 78 1-2-47 1-2. In this meet Sniffen again collected 
three first places, while Nelson and Thurlow obtained two each. 

On May 23rd eight of the high point scorers in dual competition went to the 
N. E. I. C. A. A. meet at Boston. Sniffen again distinguished himself by qualify- 
ing in both the 220-yd. dash and the broad jump. He gave up his place in the 
220, however, to concentrate on the jump in which he brought back third place 
and three points for M. A. C. 

The last meet of the season was the Triangular with the Universities of Ver- 
mont and New Hampshire. New Hampshire won the meet by the scant margin 
of seven points over M. A. C, Vermont placing a poor third. 

An indication of the type of work that the team did throughout the season 
is shown by the fact that three college records were broken and a fourth tied 
during the spring. Nelson "24 broke the old record of 17 2-5 seconds in the 120- 
yd. high hurdles with a 17 1-5 performance in the Conn. Aggie meet. Thurlow 
'26 raised Birchards '17 record of 115 ft. 10 1-4 inches in the discus throw to 
116 ft. 1 1-4 inches. Sniffen '26 broke the old record in the broad jump of 21 ft. 
1-2 in. held by Nicolet '14, by a leap of 21 ft. 4 1-2 inches. Sniffin also tied the 
100-yd. dash record also held by Nicolet with 10 1-5 seconds. With a majority 
of the members remaining from this team, indications point to another successful 
season in 1925. In recognition of their good work, the student-body gave the 
outstanding members of the team watch charms consisting of a miniature gold 
track shoe.

1924 Cros^si Countrp ^eagon 

TN reviewing the Cross Country season for the past year, one finds that 
-*- the team has made a most creditable showing with the material at hand. 
The team won three of their five dual meets against worthy opponents. 

At the outset Coach Derby had no letter men around whom to build a team, 
as only two veterans remained from the 1923 aggregation, and they were not 
regular members of that team. However, the sophomore class contributed well 
toward it, four of their number winning regular berths. 

The first run against R. P. I. was lost by an overwhelming score, 15-46, 
but the team came back to trim W. P. I. decisively the following week on their 
course, 25-33. 

Perhaps the most disappointing race was the Wesleyan run which we lost 
27-28. In this race Nottabaert was leading the pack for two thirds of the distance 
when he was forced to retire because of injury. But this defeat served to spur 
the men on to win over our town rivals; Amherst, the day before the annual foot- 
ball game. The score of this meet was 25-34, and seemed to act as an indicator 
of victory in football the following day. 

The following week the Conn. Aggies were defeated on their own course 25-34. 
The entire team went to Boston November 15th for New England Intercollegiate 
run, and made a very creditable showing for the competition they were in. 

Throughout the season the outstanding feature was team work. In none 
of the runs did M. A. C. get a first place, but the manner in which the men grouped 
themselves together as a team, was the factor which spelled defeat for our op-

Jfootball ^easion, 1924 

^ I ^HE lOSi Football season opened early in September 
-*- with a fairly large squad back to work to give Aggie 
one of the best football teams in the history of the insti- 
tution. Although only three regulars were lost to the 
team by graduation, it was problematical who would 
receive their assignments from the beginning of the 
practice sessions. At the beginning of the season Cap- 
tain Marx was incapacitated with an injury he got during 
the summer, but he proved to be a most able leader both 
off the field and after he returned to the lineup. 

On the coaching end of the team Head Coach Gore 
was ably assisted by "Bob" Mohor of the '22 team, who 
came back to coach the line, and "Pop" Clark of the '83 
team who left his business to come up and coach "C" 
team. In addition, various football men of previous "Aggie" teams came back 
during the season to assist in any way possible. Thus it looked as though we 
were pretty well prepared for our opening game with Conn. Aggie on September 

The performance of "Dolly" Dole's aggregation, however, was quite a sur- 
prise, as they set us back with the close score of 12-10. The game was a thriller 
from start to finish, the lead going from one team to the other. With the "Flying 
Agrarians" leading at the end of the third quarter 10-6 it looked as if they were to 
start the season with a clean slate, but at this junction in the conflict the "Nut- 
meggers" opened an arial attack with which we were unable to cope. It was some 
consolation, however, to know that the team that defeated us was coached by an 
M. A. C. graduate, who was exceedingly clever in manipulating the pigskin, him- 
self, in his undergraduate days. 

In the second game of the season the Maroon and White redeemed itself, 
both for the game of the previous week, and for the defeat it received from Bates 


in 1923 at Lewiston. The boys from the Pine Tree state were found to be on the 
short end of a 19-6 score, after the smoke of the battle had cleared. The following 
week the team migrated into the wilds of Vermont and took the Norwich team 
into camp 41-0. It is interesting to note that this is more decisively than even 
Dartmouth beat the cadets. 

The game with Worcester Tech was nearly as easily won, 54-13 — the .second 
string playing more than half of the game. It was in this game that "Larry" 
missed his first points after touchdown of the year. It is interesting to note 
also, that the only real injury during the entire season was sustained in this con- 
flict. During one of the exciting moments of the game "Fat" Gavin was acci- 
dentally trampled on by a player. 

In the Wcsleyan game one of the most exciting battles of the season was seen 
on Alumni Field. During this struggle for supremacy the value of "Larry's" toe was 
truly realized. With the score knotted at thirteen all, he kicked the point that 
meant victory for M. A. C. The "Agates" were far more superior to the "Metho- 
dists" than the score would indicate. The features of the game were the tearing 
line plunges of McGeoch and Sullivan, and the 90-yard run, for a touchdown, 
by McLane of Wesleyan, from the kick off. This brilliant play tended to make 
Wesleyan's score decidedly more respectable and to put the spirit of "do or die" 
into both teams. 

The glorious defeat of Amherst 17-7 gave the team a lot of confidence and 
some of the "Jeffmen" will not soon forget the battle royal with "Tiny" and 
"Moury". Nothing could have pleased the thousands of students and alumni 
assembled on Alumni field more, on that eventful Saturday, than to have the 
game end as it did. The much touted "Jack" Hill and his mates met more than 
their match when they lined up against the pupils of "Kid" Gore, and this was 
more emphatically shown a few weeks later when we witnessed, how our boys 
"Cut Down", in the movies shown of the game in Stockbridge Hall. 

The Stevens game, at Hoboken, proved to be a "red letter" day for the 
Alumni in and around New York. They saw the team turn back the "Engi- 
neers" 23-3, and found out of just what stuff the team was made. After the 
game the Alumni feted the team at a bancjuet held at the New York Athletic Club. 

The Tufts game saw a large proportion of the student body present at Med- 
ford to see the final clash of the season. The score 7-7 was somewhat of a dis- 
appointment, but as one alumnus said, "the 'Jumbos' played good football and 
the 'Agates' did not come up to expectations." 

A few high points during the season might be mentioned in conclusion. 
"Larry" Jones held the record for the East, for the number of points scored after 
touchdowns, for a number of weeks. Also, Charley McGeoch, for quite a while, 
ranked third in the East on total number of points scored. In connection with 
this, there is a story that at least one member of the coaching staff likes to relate, 
that illustrates the cooperation and team work that was so instrumental in pro- 
ducing a successful season. 


"It was in the AVesleyan game, when 'Mac', who at the time was ranking 
third in the high point scorer's column, made a series of brilliant runs bringing 
the ball to the visitor's 4-yard line, at this point the quarterback took time out 
and told "Mac" that he was going to carry the ball over. 'Give it to 'Sully', 
I'm winded,' said 'Mac', giving up his opportunity to increase his individual 
score for the sake of team work. Incidentally "Sully" scored."

OlMPLY a glance at tlie season's scores would indicate 
^^ a poor season, but if the handicaps under which the 
team labored are taken into consideration, namely: 
unfavorable ice throughout the entire season, and the 
ncessity of playing against colleges that had two or more 
^ experienced teams to put into the struggle, together with 

I >W ^-<. a lack of material, it will be apparent that the team "car- 

I ■ ried on" with the characteristic "Aggie" spirit. 

'W The team was coached by "Red" Ball '21, and the 

M principles of teamwork which he instilled into his charges 

^ was well displayed in most of the games. There were 

but three veterans, Captain Crosby, "Sammy" Gordon, 
and "Buddy" Moberg, around which to build the team. 
Williams was the first team to be met and was con- 
quered only after a hard struggle. Many faults showed up as a result of this 
game, and although we realized that we had a team in the infant stage, we also 
realized that a great deal of work must be done in order to make this infant into 
a first class team. At Yale, the wealth of good material showed that we must be 
able to play practically two teams, which we did, before the final whistle, with 
the result that we were nearly buried by a Yale landslide. At Hamilton, we were 
again defeated, by superior team-work, and our first attempt to play on artificial 
ice. The next day, at Cornell, our tired team held them so well that the final 
score was in doubt until the last whistle. The Amherst game, played in a blinding 
snowstorm and on ice that was partially covered with snow after the first few 
minutes of play, was also in doubt until the final whistle. This was probably the 
best game of the season, and is one in which the score indicates nothing as to the 
relative merits of the two teams. The Bates game required 30 minutes of over- 
time playing before the victory finally came to us. Lack of practice and 


experienced substitute material accounts for tlie overwlielming defeat at Dart- 
mouth. The last two games, with West Point and Williams, were cancelled 
because of lack of ice. 

The work of Captain Crosby on the defense, and of Moberg in the forward 
line featured throughout the season, while the work of Palmer at goal should not 
pass unmentioned, as it was he who kept most of our opponents' scores as low as 
they were.

'HpHE basketball season of WiB was a season of marked 
-*- successes. The schedule consisted of fourteen games, 
out of which the Agate quintet won eleven, including the 
Dartmouth, New Hampshire, Conn. Aggie, and Williams 
games. Two of our three defeats were by New England 
teams, and it is generally recognized that the team has 
defeated better aggregations than those which defeated 
them. The Agates scored in the fourteen games a total 
of 4,S2 points to their opponent's 315, an average of 
nearly 31 points per game. This is unusually good, 
especially in consideration of the heavy schedule which 
was carried. 

The Norwich contest was possibly one of the best 
offensive games played this season. A total of 61 points 
was piled up on the rugged cadets, which averages one basket every eighty seconds. 
The Dartmouth victory is unquestionably the greatest victory in the history of 
M. A. C. basketball. Dartmouth was at the time of the defeat tied for claim to 
the Eastern Collegiate championship and was subsequently defeated only by 
Princeton. The game, throughout, was characterized by clean, hard playing on 
the part of both teams, and it was only by pluck and the Aggie .spirit that the 
winning point was .scored. The season opened with five veterans, Captain 
Samuels, Temple, Smiley, Jones, and Ferranti, and a number of candidates. 
"Merry" Partenheimer of Greenfield was finally selected to occupy the place left 
vacant by "Eddie" Bike, last year's captain. This lineup was played intact until 
"Larry" Jones was laid up with the grippe, when "Gus" Gustafson of Brockton 
broke into the lineup. "Johnny" Temple was high scorer of the team, with 118 
points to his credit. He was, however, followed closely by Partenheimer and 
Captain Samuels. 

All in all, it was the perfect teamwork and individual excellence that caused 
the "Flying Agrarians" to blossom as the New England Champions for 1925.

^i^t Marital Clubs; 1924=1925 

' I ^HE Combined Musical Clubs have given during the past season, an excellent 
-'- series of concerts. From the first of the season, there was an orchestra 
which not only furnished the music for dancing following each concert, but also 
took part in the concert program. 

An average of thirty-three men made each trip; with more Juniors repre- 
sented than any other class, and with the freshman, sophomores and .seniors fol- 
lowing respectively according to their number of representatives. 

The first concert was given at the U. S. Veterans' Hospital in Leeds, where 
the clubs had a good opportunity to prepare for the more important concerts of 
the season; the principle one being in conjunction with the Smith College Musical 
Clubs. This combined concert proved to be a huge success, altho the program 
was heavier than those customarily attempted. Instead of dancing after the 
concert, the club members enjoyed a reception given them by the Smith College 
Musical Clubs. 

The first concert of the second term was held at Brimfield and was soon 
followed by one at Belchertown under the auspices of the High School. Programs 
were given at Bernardston, Hadley, Florence and Springfield successively. 


Following these, the clubs entertained the Northampton Lodge of Elks and 
were given a supper at the "Manse". Later the clubs again travelled to North- 
ampton to give a concert under the auspices of the High School. 

The season ended with the Social Union Concert held in Bowker Auditorium. 
With the co-operation and talented performances of Mrs. Helen Fisherdick An- 
derson, pianist and accompanist, and Mr. Roy K. Patch, tenor, the clubs ren- 
dered the "Swan Song" of a very successful season. 

As to the program it.self, it has been wed balanced and more varied than in 
previous years. The dance orchestra furnished lighter music to relieve the more 
somber classics. "Ted" Grant, Emil Corwin, and George Church very adequately 
succeeded Erie Weatherwax with their skits and readings. "Pinkie" Guterman 
and George Church furnished nonsense songs and were greatly in demand. 
The quartette composed of Myron Smith, Roy Norcross, "Brad" Armstrong, and 
"Fat" Gavin also rendered several selections with great merit. "Sam" Wood- 
bury augmented the well balanced program with his piano solos and Roy Nor- 
cross supplied the vocal solos. 

The clubs were fortunate in securing the services of Ivan T. Gorockoff, of 
the Smith College faculty, as coach. He is indeed an accomplished director and 
molded the club into excellent shape by his diligent and constant efforts. 

"Pinkie" Guterman, the manager, and Roy Norcross, the leader, took upon 
their shoulders the burdens of the clubs and fulfilled their obligations in a most 
creditable manner.

'' I ^HE season of 1923-24 came to a close with a successful trip into Vermont. 
-*- The team, composed of Pickens and Ward met the University of Vermont 
and Middlebury on the question: Resolved, that the United States enter the 
World Court of International Justice. Opposing our entrance into the Court, 
the team lost a close contest to Vermont, but won handsomely at Middlebury. 

Soon after the opening of the college year, 1924-25, an attempt was made by 
Vermont and M. A. C. to form a Quadrangular League with New Hampshire and 
Maine. The objective of the League was to improve the quality of debating and 
stimulate interest in the respective institutions. But due to full schedules at 
New Hampshire and Maine it proved impossible. 

The debating season, however, opened with a promising outlook for the year 
with a full schedule. All the members of last year's team were back and anxious 
to start work on the question for the debates of the year: Resolved, that Congress 
should be given the power to declare effective, by a two-thirds vote, laws held un- 
constitutional by the Supreme Court. Due to the necessity of allowing oppo- 
nents to the side of the question so that the one subject might be used on 
trips, it turned out that M. A. C. had to uphold the Affirmative side of the ques- 
tion thru-out the season. This placed public opinion against them, a distinct 
handicap to be overcome. 

On February 18, the team compcsed of Pickens, Ward, and Haskins started 
on a trip to Maine. That evening they met a strong team from Boston Univer- 
sity in Jacob Sleeper Hall. The debate was a real "Battle", as the Chairman put 
it, and the decision very close, going 2-1 in favor of Boston. The following day 
the team journeyed to Durham to meet the University of New Hampshire. In 
this debate, the Negative failed to meet our Affirmative case, but, as the team was 
unable to convince the Judges of the fact, the decision was 3-0 in favor of New 
Hampshire. Then the team went to Bates, where they were royally entertained. 
Saturday evening, the M. A. C. team met for the first time a team composed of 
women. Their proverbial ability to talk stood the Bates girls in good stead in 
helping to impress the audience with the strength of their case. It was a very 
close, well fought contest, with the decision going in favor of the girls. 

Middlebury sent a team to Amherst for a return debate this year. They 
were greeted by a record crowd in the Upper Memorial Hall. Our team came 
thru to a well merited 3-0 victory. A week later a team from the L^niversity of 
Vermont was also overcome by a unanimous decision of the judges. 

Two debates remain on the schedule. Lafayette College is sending a team 
here April 3 to debate on the Supreme Court question. In this debate the O.xford 
plan of e.xchanging one speaker from each team will be used and the outcome 
watched with much interest. 

The middle of April a debate will be held with Mount Holyoke on the ques- 
tion: Resolved, that Co-Education is preferable to Segregated Education. 


M. A. C. is upholding the proposition, which promises to be of great interest, 
being so closely connected with the two institutions. 

In all the debates this year, with the exception of the one with B. U., the 
Oxford system has been used. This calls for extemporaneous delivery and the 
combining of rebuttal with constructive argument in a single speech for each mem- 
ber of the teams, except the first Affirmative, who concludes the debate with his 
rebuttal. This system has been found to be much more natural and to develop 
more capable speakers, who can think on their feet. With a number of exper- 
ienced underclassmen, the outlook for the future is bright. 

Do you remember the time when "Kid" and "Peg" dressed up like kids and sang 
us some of the Duncan Sisters' songs at the "Y" show? 

Do you remember the time when it took five men to hog-tie Gus Johnson 
the banquet scrap our sophomore year?

I "'HE Roister Doisters, the dramatic society of M. A. C, has been wide awake 
-^ and have created a great deal of interest for its productions both inside and 
outside of the college. 

They have produced widely differing types of plays with various degrees of 
success. As a whole, the critics seem to agree that "The Truth About Blayds" 
was one of the best performed plays ever enacted in Stockbridge Hall. This play 
was given two years ago. Last year the Prom Show "Dulcy" was produced in 
Belchertown, Deerfield, Pittsfield and at Stockbridge Hall. "Grumpy" the 
commencement show of last year, was a great success, largely due to the unusual 
acting ability of H. Erie Weatherwax. This year's Prom Show is to be "Wedding 
Bells", by Salisbury Field. It is a joyous comedy in three acts and promises 
many laughs. 

The "Aggie Revue" is getting better and each year the Revue develops new 
talent in writing, acting, and producing. The Roister Doisters are striving to 
employ local talent in the writing of the episodes and this year two out of the four 
acts were written by students. To foster the development of this talent the 
dramatic society has offered prizes for the two best one-act plays, written for the 
yearly competition. 

The society has enjoyed many good times together. There have been sev- 
eral banquets, and on one occasion Miss Lois Cann of Gushing Academy gave the 
society a very enjoyable reading. Besides this the Roister Doisters have taken 
trips to Springfield to witness productions of particular merit. 

The society has offered the thrill of a lifetime to many of its actors. For 
example, when the stage is all set for the butler or maid to appear and they do . 
not, this is the time when self-possession is at a premium and it's either "carry on 
or be carried out." 

The success of the Roister Doisters is confirmed by their excellent financial 
standing, the heavy competition for places in the casts, and the fact, that the 
student body is back of, and is proud of them. 


TT is not only our athletic teams that uphold the honor of M. A. C. against 
-*- other institutions, but throughout the year the Judging Teams, in various 
lines of endeavor, match their knowledge and abilities with those of other colleges. 
This competition is not confined to New England alone, but teams from many 
other sections of the United States are also met. As these teams go annually 
from "Aggie" to do their bit for the college, it seems only just that we should 
recognize more fully their value to this institution. A brief summary of the work 
these men have done the past season, will undoubtedly show us their value. 

The year 1924 witnessed our participation in contests, some near and some 
far from home. The most auspicious work was done by the Fruit Packing and 
Fruit Judging Teams and the Dairy Products Judging Team. For the third time 
in four years The Fruit Judging Team won the much coveted International con- 
test at Atlantic City; for the eighth consecutive year and the ninth time in thir- 
teen years, the team won the New England Judging title. The Packing Team 
won the New England Packing contest for the sixth consecutive year and the 
ninth time in eleven years. The Dairy Products Team, at Milwaukee, from the 
best teams in the country, won the contest in milk judging. 

"Aggie" may well be proud of the records these men have made. May 
the teams to follow them uphold our prestige in this line of work, as our athletic 
teams and Academic Activities strive to keep "Aggie's" record on the right side 
of the ledger.

^f)e College iSetosipaper 

WEDNESDAY night comes round and in every fraternitj^ house and dormi- 
tory students are busily reading the "Massachusetts Collegian", our college 
newspaper, and having read, they sit back to "razz" and discuss the paper, and 
finally come to the conclusion that the paper is not so bad after all. 

During the past year the form of the paper was radically changed, and 
through the interest and hard work of the members of the board, the publication 
has risen to be one of the best of the college weeklies in the East. Positions on 
the board are becoming valued, and the paper has become, during the past year, 
a newspaper in every sense of the word, with its interest centered in "Aggie", 
but also reaching out into other campuses. 

The editors of the paper attempt to express student opinion, and cover stu- 
dent activities, and new members are chosen, yearly, from the freshman and 
sophomore classes.

T? VERY year a handful of students from the junior class unite in weary weeks of 
-'---' hard work to produce a thin, leather-bound volume which is to be distributed 
to each member of the college. Why do they do it? Perhaps they have nothing 
else to do; perhaps they are seeking publicity; or perhaps they have an extra 
large amount of class spirit. We do not know, but we like to believe the last- 
named reason, that they are anxious to help in the making of a permanent and 
valuable contribution to the welfare of the class. 

But what is this contribution? And is it worth all this time and effort? 
We of the Index Board believe that it is. We hope and expect it to serve a three- 
fold purpose. In the first place, the Index is to serve as a permanent record of 
the activities of the past year. As such it should be a valuable reference book, a 
handy place to look up records of the various teams, members of the different 
organizations, and the many little facts that are difficult to find anywhere else. 
Again, it contains the story of the college. It is more than a catalog, — it is an 
exposition of the college, a panorama of its life, conveniently arranged for ex- 
amination. Lastly, it is distinctly a class book, and in this guise we hope it will 
attain its greatest usefulness. To the members of the class it may be at least 
interesting now; but as time goes on it should ever be increasingly valuable to 
renew memories of undergraduate days. For here will be found the old familiar 
faces and a line or two about each of the old friends, enhancing recollections of 
the four happiest years in life. 

In the fifty-five years since its inception, the Index has changed immensely 
in character. It progressed from a mere pamphlet to an expensive volume, 
elaborately finished, and containing almost everything that might be of interest 
to the student body. In late years the tremendous cost of materials has neces- 
sarily resulted in cutting down the size of the book and making it as compact 
as possible. Some features have purposely been omitted from this issue, and 
perhaps some have been unintentionally missed; but the board feels that it is 
serving the many readers of the Index to the best of its ability under the limited
