HERE will come a time, in the years 
ahead, when the memories of these 
vital college years will be lost in the 
hazy depths of time. When these 
now seemingly unimportant every- 
day experiences which we consider 
an inseparable part of our lives, will be shrouded in a 

great indefiniteness Then will be the 

hour of this Index, upon which the board has expended 
its best efforts. 

Now, its pages scarcely dry of the printer's ink, it is 
little more than a collection of campus incidents; 
then, it will be a precious chalice brimming with recol- 
lections of the delights of these, the golden years. 

It is for this purpose the board has worked; that 
the memories of the greatest experience in our lives 
shall not be lost to the men of "Massachusetts".

TN THE AUTUMN of 1908 Professor E. L. Ashley came to the Massachusetts 
-'- Agricultural College as Instructor in German Language and Literature. 
Holding a Master's degree in Arts from Brown LTniversity, trained for his special 
work by study and research in the University of Heidelberg, he brought to our 
College the dignity and the poise which is characteristic of the liberal thinker 
disciplined by the classical tradition. 

The biographical events which bear upon Professor Ashley's preparation for 
his life's work may be simply stated. He was born at Medford, Mass., Sept. 6, 
1880. First a country school boy, then prepared for College at the Boston Latin 
School, he entered Brown University, graduating in 1903 and remaining three 
years more as instructor in German and graduate student in Germanics. During 
this period of study he received the M.A. degree. The year 1906-7 was spent at 
the LTniversity of Heidelberg. Then followed a year at Bates College whence, 
in 1908, he was called to head the Department of German at M.A.C. In regard 
to his attainments in the world of scholarship it is sufficient to .say that he is a 
member of Phi Beta Kappa, and furthermore that American students of merely 
average intelligence do not study Germanics at Heidelberg LTniversity. 

The qualities which now distinguish the man were manifested at an early age. 
Even as a boy he seems to have possessed the gift of a vivid and creative imagi- 
nation. He is thrilled by stories of the dogs of St. Bernard; he revels in the 
exploits of all-conquering story-book heroes; he dreams of crossing the seas and 
visiting strange countries and stranger peoples. But rarer than the gift of imagi- 
nation is the ability to incarnate the vision in deeds. This boy was a practical 
idealist; he prepared hijnself in Greek, and without a teacher, for admission to the 
Boston Latin School. Furthermore, he took up by himself and under rigorous 
self-discipline made considerable advance in the piano before he had received a 
single lesson in music. 

It can be seen that the child was truly the father of the man for the youthful 
enthusiasms and interests all bore fruit. Creative imagination has ripened into a 
delightful, whimsical and ironical humor which accompanies a keen insight into 
human nature; on the objective side it has led to a passion for gardening and 
decorative art. The dream of travel in foreign lands has been realized and 
Professor Ashley is our most traveled faculty member. Summer vacations find 
him in France, Spain and Italy, while in 1911 he extended his travels into Egypt 
and Palestine. His early conquest of a foreign tongue has gone on to the mastery 
of German, French, Spanish and Italian. The interest in music has developed 
into the thorough and exhaustive accfuaintance with musical history and theory 
which has enabled him to direct some of our students away from the current 
vulgarisms misnamed music and into a world of keen satisfaction and ever 
increasing pleasure. 

There is yet another field which this versatile man has made peculiarly his 
own. Professor Ashley is recognized as one of the very few American connoisseurs 
on French, Spanish and Italian antiques, particularly textiles such as laces, 
tapestries, velvets, brocades and ecclesiastical vestments. Certain of the leading 
art museums of the country owe not a few of their choicer pieces to this modest 
and indefatigable worker. 

His position at M.A.C. has been somewhat unique. In an atmosphere 
inimical to humanism where scientific practicality all too easily slips over into 
commercialism, and where the exigencies of democratic control are sometimes 
trying to the liberal spirit, he has maintained a commendable loyalty to the stable 
though subtler values of life and has not sacrificed principle to expediency or sin- 
cerity to personal preferment. 

The Profes.sor Ashley known to students in the class-room is an unassuming 
gentleman — quiet, poised, impersonal, patient and sympathetic with stumblers, 
gently ironical when dealing with pretence and conceit, firm in discipline. Year 
after year these qualities exert their silent, steady influence. He knows that 
there are no short cuts to knowledge, no magic formulae for the acquirement of 
foreign tongues; he asks for rigorous sustained effort, and those who make the 
sacrifice are never disappointed with the results obtained. It is the constant 
judgement of the students, and one with which, as a member of his first class at 
M.A.C. we can heartily concur, that "you learn the language with Ashley". 

It is an encouraging index of the growing liberalism and deeper intuition of 
our student body that the Class of 1927 has seen fit to dedicate this book to one 
who represents so richly the qualities which intelligent men in all ages have 
regarded as their most precious heritage.

d^ur iHajors; 

'TpHEE.E is one subject in which both alumni and undergraduates of any college 
-*- are interested. That interest is embodied in two questions, — "AVhat is he 
doing now?" and "What is your Major?" It would be interesting to combine 
these two questions and answer them by a comparison of majors and life-work for 
all alumni of the college. This, unfortunately is impossible, as majors, as such, 
did not exist prior to 1915. An interesting summary can be made of facts about 
majors of students from 1915 up to the present graduating class, however. 

Probably we have all, at some time or other, wondered what major was the 
most popular on the campus. In the order of their popularity, as expressed by 
the number taking them, the majors rank as follows: Pomology, Animal Hus- 
bandry, Agriculture, Agricultural Economics, Chemistry, Lansdcape Gardening, 
Entomology, Agricultural Education, Floriculture, Microbiology, Poultry, 
Botany, Dairying, Agronomy, Farm Management, Rural Sociology, Forestry, 
Rural Journalism, Vegetable Gardening, Home Economics, Plant Pathology, 
Economics Sociology, Biology. Not all these majors have been in existence 
during the whole time of 1915-1926. Some have been discontinued and others 
have been instituted as need for the change was felt. The Farm Management 
major was created in 1923; and Home Economics; and Economic Sociology, 
and Biology were founded as majors in 1925. 

Among the majors. Pomology has always held a prominent place. In 1923 
it reached the height of its popularity, claiming in that year 20 per cent of the 
graduating class enrollment. Animal Husbandry is a close second, but has 
dropped in rank from 21 per cent in 1921 to 6 per cent of the class of 1926. Agri- 
culture has been discontinued as a major, giving way to more specialized fields of 
agriculture, but in 1917 it had an enrollment of 25 per cent of the class in its ranks. 
Agricultural Economics rose in popularity from 1 per cent in 1917, when it was 
started, to 17 per cent in '23, which year marked the crest of its popularity. 
Chemistry has always been a steady runner in the field of popularity and had 
at least 10 per cent of the student body in its major labs in the last decade. Land- 
scape Gardening is a favorite because of its appeal to the scientifically artistic 
student. Its claims are substantial, as it has had 8, 9, and 14 percent of the last 
three classes, respectively. M.A.C. is in good repute in the field of Entomology, 
and the major has been well patronized, having in 1925 graduates 19 per cent. 
Agricultural Education has risen steadily in the ranks from 2 to 15 per cent. 
Floriculture has ranged from per cent to 1 0. Microbiology has been on a steady 
decline from 6 to 1 per cent. Poultry is always a minor major, usually under 
5 per cent. Botany has never accounted for more than 3 per cent of a class. 
Dairying shows a record of several years without patrons. Agronomy has had 
two students in its work since '18. Farm Management has reached a percentage 
of 7 in one year of its four in existence. Rural Sociology, Forestry and Journalism 


have never been strong, and Journalism and Forestry have died a natural death 
as majors. Vegetable Gardening attained the 4 per cent mark last year. Home 
Economics is the youngest major, but bids fair to grow strong among our feminine 
constituency. Economic Sociology and Biology each had a representative in '26. 

This then, is the situation as regards majors at M.A.C. As far as the relation 
of work after graduation to major in college is concerned, it is hard to obtain 
sufficient information on which to base conclusions. The class of 1920 is the 
only one that has approximately correct and complete information on the present 
work of its members. From a survey of the available information, it would be 
safe to say that at least 90 percent of the graduates follow up their major with 
work that is correlated with it in some way. This has not been true among the 
earlier alumni of M.A.C. to such a great degree, for it is found that, among the 
alumni during the period from 1871 to 1921, approximately ,5.5 percent were en- 
gaged in agricultural pursuits and -15 percent in non-agricultural pursuits. 

We have not tried to draw any conclusion from this mass of data, but merely 
to present it for the reader's edification. Perhaps it will throw some light on 
where our major stands among many. Perhaps someone will evolve a theory 
about the present trend of student requirement as far as majors are concerned. 
At least, we are able to learn something about the history of our major that we 
did not know before, and our curiosity may be satisfied to some extent by the 
acquisition of this knowledge.

Senior Cla^si ||isitorp 

THE plaintive assertion that "The class of 'SG is merely a means to an end for 
the faculty" appeared • in our Freshman Class History. In our Senior 
History we can only change the tense of the verb and reafBrm the truth of the 
statement. We, the M.A.C. Experiment Station extraordinary, have contributed 
— in many cases quite involuntarily! — to many changes in our Alma Mater. 

We have seen Agronomy go, and Agriculture come. To our joy, we have 
seen Goessmann Lab. rise to its stately completion; to our sorrow we have lost 
President Butterfield to another M.A.C. far away from our "certain valley". 
We have studied and survived amidst a wild maze of new majors, sub-majors, and _ 
an increditably intricate credit system. We have seen Arena parties go, and 
field parties replace pond parties; We were the last class to draw those complex- 
ities known as "Botany lab. work"; and we were the last class to learn Physics 
under "Billy" Hasbrouck of beloved memory. 

Our voluntary contributions, however, have been no less. 1926 men have 
been responsible for M.A.C's most successfull athletic teams in many years. 
'26 men have been the mainstays of every team; they have also made for the 
class records in Scraps and Rope Pulls that will not soon be forgotten. Academic 
Activity achievements are also ours. Among other things, the Aggie Revue 
offering this year was, for the first time since 1915, an original musical comedy, 
with all the music by a 1926 man. 

Now the time has come when we must bid farewell to our college and our 
class mates of four years all too swiftly passed, and, with many memories of joys 
shared together, and of the self-taught lessons of friendship and co-operation as 
well as the lessons taught us in the classroom, we may truly say "Long will we 
cherish— M.A.C."

Junior Clasisi i|igtorp 

AFTER a persistant pounding on the door, the drowsy occupant of the room 
yielded and a member of the INDEX Board burst in. "See here! Where 
is that Junior Class history?" 

Junior Class history! The class historian was left somewhat perplexed. 
The Class of 1927! Just what had happened to the Class of 1927? The historian 
went back three years in his memory and recalled that excited group of strangers 
who had been "rounded up" in the Arena 'way back in September, 1923, for their 
first class meeting. He recalled how their defeat in the nightshirt parade has 
served only to bring them closer together; how they had pulled as a unit in the 
rope pull; how they had stood as a class behind the football, hockey and basketball 
teams that won for them a name on the campus; how they had fought together on 
the hill, until when they banciueted together at Springfield, the Class of 1927 had 
become a vivid reality. 

Then they had returned to the campus for their sophomore year, to stand 
firmly together for the enforcement of the Senate rules. The victory of the night- 
shirt parade and the defeat in the rope pull had been brilliant class experiences. 
'27 men had pointed with pride to their class teams, to their members in varsity 
athletics and to their virtual dominance of the field of academics. 

But the Junior year! What had become of 1927 as Juniors? The historian's 
reflections were at an end. He thought of the hurried little groups, busily segre- 
gated in their majors, that curtly elbowed past each other as they met on the 
cross-walks. He thought of the '27 men who had just finished their work for the 
football season. '27 men were everywhere in athletics: in basketball, in hockey, 
in cross country, in track — they would be in baseball uniforms in the spring. 
In academics '27 men were always present. They were on the Collegian, they 
were in the musical clubs, they were in dramatics, they were in debating. In 
their Junior year, '27 men were a lot of busy individuals. 

History of the Junior year! Histories are written for Freshmen and Sopho- 
mores. Seniors write their prophecies but Juniors — as individuals the Juniors 
buckle down to business and work for their majors and for the college; as a class 
they simply hibernate.

This studious gentleman is one of those fortunates 
that start out from college with something more in 
their possession than the customary education. "Bob" 
is a watch maker of no mean ability. The brilliant 
suggestion has been made that Bob take Rural Engi- 
neering! Decidedly! Perhaps we may some day see 
him president of the Gruen Guild! The patience and 
perseverance that he applies in repairing cantankerous 
watches no doubt serves him in other fields, for no one 
has ever heard a prof, complain of Bob's scholastic

This is "Joe Chemist" as he styles himself. Gerry 
claims that he has the record for apparatus breakage 
in Organic chem. One might say that as a chemist, 
Gerry is a good football player; because he is there on 
the gridiron. He merely forgets to change his tactics 
when he reaches into his chem locker full of glassware, 
that's all! Gerry's major, however, is Pom. so he is 
not very much upset by his remarkable technique! 
Gerry has a disposition and a grin of such good nature 
that he would melt a Galatea to life again.

Amherst, Mass. Amherst High School 

1905; Microbiology; Index (3); Kappa Gamma Phi. 
Young "Phil" is a member of the local four hundred. 
He feels at home in a gathering of a certain group of 
young scientists, with whom he frequents the Chem 
and Micro labs. He has tried hard for the last two 
years to impart his enthusiasm to the cheering section 
at the games. We hope he will eventually succeed. In 
the short intervals of rest between micro labs and ath- 
letic games, Phil rushes several mysterious young ladies 
of the neighborhood. Phil is known to be extremely 
accurate in his attendance in chapel and classroom.

Stout seaman — this virile blond from the whaling 
town, whose fine vigor helped our six-man rope-pull 
to a victory over '28 — this roving spirit who can boast 
of his peregrinations to any landlubber. On the verge 
of wading into a new matriculation he decided to stick 
with us — good judgment, eh? He is accomplished with 
the pen — ask Major Kobbe — and more, he is a friendly 
chap whose acquaintance is an inspiration. A cogent 
sense of humor pervades his thoughts — but be careful — 
he shoots from the hip. As for autographed letters, 
he is Edward Bok's kid brother — a worthy collection. 
Larry, — if the Golden Rule is worth anything — you 
are worth a million!

Look at him! What flashes into your head imme-

efficiency hounds personified. He can, if he so desires, 
run his marks so close to 60's that he keeps his friends 
in deathly anxiety, or he can, by exerting himself, take 
differential calculus and get away with it. Will he get 
on in the world? Look at that face! He will!

No wonder Raphael majored in Entomology! It is 
finite logical that a Tick should be found in an en- 
tomological laboratory. By the same reasoning, it is 
cilwious why our child retires so early evenings — 
there's only a hyphen between bed and tick. The bug 
plans an innovation for next falls Cross Country races, 
when a shrill and tremulous whistle will replace the 
starting gun and cause our dissector to finish before his 
competitors have started.

"Blackie" comes over from Williamsburg to major in 
An. Hus. In everything he is a hard worker, from 
football to his studies. "Blackie" is a mighty nimrod 
(■') and every once in a while lays aside his books to 
heed the call of the open to fish and hunt for a day. 
However, deer season is only open for a week and so we 
are suspicious of the true reason for his weekly trips to 
Williamsburg. If "Blackie" continues to work as hard 
after he leaves college, we expect the hills of old Wil- 
liamsburg to flourish like the green bay tree.

Boston, Mass. Jamaica Plain High School 

1900; Poultry Husbandry; Collegian (2, 3); Kappa 
Gamma Phi. 

A quiet and inconspicuous boy as a freshman, Botts 
has shown his real character only in his sophomore year, 
when he resided in Stockbridge Hall. Stockbridge was 
that year a gathering place for the class of '27. Botts 
is really majoring in Poultry Husbandry, but he is 
somewhat sensitive on the subject, and claims that his 
major is Avian Pathology. It is to the credit of Botts 
that he is embued with a strong college and class spirit, 
and has never missed any athletic events on the campus. 


Dorchester, Mass. Chelsea High School 

1906; Agricultural Economics; Varsity Track (2); 
Statistics Editor, Index (3); Menorah Society; Fresh- 
man Track; Delta Phi Alpha. 

The redoubtable editor of Statistics for this im- 
portant publication is here pictured with his ever- 
present smile. "Mac" seems to fill the much needed 
role of the man-of-all-work, for Ma.\ has given us that 
aid which is most necessary in a publication of this kind, 
the procuring of statistics. Much drudgery goes with 
this work and it is to Max's credit that in the most 
arduous tasks his willing aid and ready fund of sug- 
gestions has been most helpful. Max, I think, aspires 
to Phi Kappa Phi and there is no doubt in the writer's 
mind that he will make it. 


Great Harrington, Mass. Searles High School 

1903; Landscape Gardening. 

Roily often distinguished himself in Freshman and 
Sophomore physi-ed. classes. He was always one of 
the most active runners and the loudest yellers. Later, 
he succeeded in running through his studies in the same 
efficient manner. What Roily will be when he gradu- 
ates is a matter for deep conjecture. But we have pro- 
found faith in one who can manipulate his brain and 
drafting pen with such dexterity! 



Rockland, Mass. Rockland High School 

1903; Entomology; Varsity Baseball (2); Varsity 
Basketball (2, 3); Class Basketball (1, 2, 3); Index 
(3); Class Baseball (1, 2); Six Man Rope Pull (1, 2); 
Theta Chi. 

Laughing, lovable "Larry" tired of women and the 
seashore and came to Aggie. He is quite heavy and 
makes a good man behind the bat. His smile is noticed 
as he toddles across the basketball floor. His favorite 
pastime is swinging on grapevines and since he can't get 
hurt enough on those, he uses either an axe or hash- 
house dishes. Mebbe the grapevine experiment helps 
to keep him away from the clinging variety. 


Easthampton, Mass. Easthampton High School 

1905; Agricultural Education; Collegian (2, 3); 
Girls" Glee Club (2, 3); Index; Delta Phi Gamma. 

We call her "Fannie"", but she will tell one confiden- 
tially that she really prefers to be called "Fran ". 
"Fran" represents efficiency when she dons her glasses 
and prepares to write up "'Co-Ed notes"' in the Collegian. 
Last year she developed an heretofore unheard of talent 
and she is now a member of the Girls' Glee Club and 
helped to make the last Aggie Revue Musical Comedy a 
"howling" success. 

"The sweetest noise on earth, a woman's tongue; 

A string which has no discord." 


Pittsfield, Mass. Pittsfield High School 

1905; Agricultural Education; Sec'y Women's 
Student Council (2, 3); Class Historian (1); Class 
Secretary (2, 3) ; Delta Phi Gamma. 

Ella is our best cheerer and most popular co-ed of '27. 
We owe much to Ella who has boosted Co-Ed life in 
many ways — Pep does not express it and Ella keeps 
something going most of the time, and uses all her 
efforts in making things a booming success. Life is not 
all play, however, and on Ella rests much of the re- 
sponsibility of the Women's Student Council. We also 
know her by her unusual success in the 4-H Club Work. 





Abington, Mass. Abington High School 

1905; Entomology; Freshman Football; Freshman 
Track; Varsity Track (2, 3); Aggie Revue (1, 2); 
Theta Chi. 

Burly "Bob" Burrell comes to us from the South 
Shore in earnest pursuit of knowledge or, we might say 
in pursuit of bugs, for Entomology is his major. If 
he puts the energy into chasing bugs that he does into 
heaving the discus, we pity the bug he lands his hands 
on. As a true descend — Ent. of Adam, "Bob's" fate is 
closely allied with the fatal apple. If you don't believe 
it, ask him. 



'West Medford, Mass. Medford High School 

1904; Agricultural Education; Girls' Glee Club. 
Too few of us know Jean well, for she is one of the 
newest of our classmates. We cannot help wishing 
that she had spent all of her time with us, instead of 
those two years at RadcHfle. Jean is a combination 
of three splendid qualities: good nature, remarkable 
humor, and as for pep — Jean has enough for half the 
"Abbey Girls". "Beanie" is an excellent pal, always 
ready for a good time. You don't know what you're 
missing if you don't know her! 


Boston, Mass. Huntington Preparatory School 

1893; Agricultural Education; Kappa Epsilon. 

As we recall it, this gentleman was very fond of 
proving to Prof. Halliday in French class the superiority 
of Sweden to France. They would both argue until 
they got quite red in the face and out of breath and 
then console themselves with the reflection that both 
countries were supreme in the realm of the intellect! 
Had the arguments been conducted in French, I think 
that Prof. Halliday would now have a rival to reckon 
with in excellently spoken French! 




Northampton, Mass. Smith's Agricultural School 

1902: Pomology; Varsity Baseball (2); Varsity 
Football (2, 3); Kappa Epsilon. 

Another of our midweekers. Tiring of the life of a 
machinist, "Cal" came to Aggie as a special but quickly 
decided to be a regular member of the gang, and cast 
his lot with 1927. Stalwart and true, he is as true a 
friend as he is solid. "Cal" was one of the fortunate 
men who travelled all last summer at the expense of the 
state, and if you want to know anything about back 
roads or apples, ask the boy from Easthampton.

How deceptive looks are! Who would think that this 
gentle, good-natured visage concealed the turmoil and 
turbulence of a mind almost Byronic in temperament.^ 
Rodge is our artist nonpareil, of which one may be 
easily convinced by studying his sketch of the Old 
Stockbridge House. As Art Editor of this volume 
Rodge has worked harder than he ever wishes to again. 
We await impatiently the appearance of his signature 
with N. A. in addition to his B.Sc. 


Barnstable, Mass. Everett High School 

1904; Entomology; Varsity Track (2, 3); Collegian 
(2, 3); Freshman Baseball; Freshman Basketball; 
Freshman Track; Class Track; Alpha Gamma Rho. 

Behold Paddock, General Pershing, and Lothario (or 
Romeo) rolled, (or should it be stretched?) into one! 
Our elongated "Abbey shadow" is a glutton tor staying 
out until the "wee sma' hours" and believing it his 
rightful college spirit, has refused to leave the M. A. C. 
library until he has been absolutely sure that all the 
doors have been locked. At the dish machine in Draper, 
on the cinders, or grandiloquently surveying his troops, 
he is a marvel to behold! Stay with it Charlie! 



Wrentham, Mass. Wrentham High School 

1905: Pomology; Burnham Declamation Contest 
(2); Freshman Debating Team. 

"Roge" is a gay young blade from down in the eastern 
part of the state. He once confided to .me the fact that 
the only thing he has read previous to an argument 
between us regarding the relative merits of Shakespeare, 
was the Bible! How our youngsters change! Al- 
though still of an extremely religious nature, Roger 
now has even greater aspirations. The technique of a 
Valentino now appeals to his dashing temperament. 
View Halloo! Roge!

There is no one in our class who could do Ed justice 
in a writeup of this kind. Familiarity with "Eddie" 
breeds only admiration! 

Rising out of obscurity first as a co-ed waiter and 
later as the president of Maroon Key his countless ac- 
tivities resulted in his being aptly nick-named "Joe 

Nothing further need be said of Eddie's literary abili- 
ty after pointing out that he was unanimously chosen 
Editor-in-Chief of this Index. Socially, Ed is the envy 
of his class as our "Best dancer". 


Townsend, Mass. Townsend High School 

1904; Chemistry; Alpha Gamma Rho. 
"Cookie" is ex-26. We're afraid to say much about 

him, not knowing him too well, but we appreciate his 

friendliness. He is probably the only man who lives 

in a "harbor " but has not seen salt water!

"Teedy"' is one of these quite, unassuming souls who 
ever form a very necessary part of every college com- 
munity. As a consistent point winner for the cross- 
country team, "Teedy" is an unqualified success. 
Majoring in Entomology seems to have no terrors for 
him as one may see him daily poring over his desk in 
the Ent. lab. with all the enthusiasm of an "Arrow- 


Cambridge, Mass. Mount Hermon School 

1903; Agricultural Education; Index (3); Theta 

This Apollo-like person is a minister's son. At least" 
so the gentleman himself avers! Well! That "well" 
contained super concentrated skepticism, suspicion 
and incredulity! We go no further! Mac will some 
day, (to change the subject), be a magazine editor. 
He has that capacity for digging out things of historical 
value and interest, as is manifest in the several articles 
he has written for this volume, notably those on 
"Alumni" and "College Customs". He has a ready 
wit and a huge smile that make him welcome wherever 
he may be. Mac isn't sure, however, that he's going 
to be a minister!

tion Contest (2); Delta Phi Alpha. 

Yes, he belongs to the G. A. R. O. T. C. In a uni- 
form he looks like Marshal Haig (& Haig). And sing — 
say, if you sat near him in chapel, you couldn't go to 
sleep on your feet while singing "Faith of our Fathers", 
for a steam calliope hasn't a chance against Sammy, 
when it comes to a question of volume of sound, though 
of course that doesn't mean that he always hits the right 
note. As for his major, Sammy is one of the most 
Ag. Economical boys there is. Keep it up Sammy, J. 
P. Morgan the First will be looking for you after next 
year; mebbe.

"Ruthie" needs no introduction. She is small 
enough to escape general attention, but don't good 
things come in small packages? Once you have heard 
of the Co-Ed Glee Club you must applaud her, for it is 
Ruth who gave it the impetus to get on its feet and once 
it was on its feet she has managed to keep it there. 
She is our Porto Rico Star and is really fluent with

"Ray" left us at the end of our junior fall term, but we

We'd like to see him return!

"Bill " is quite popular on the campus, particularly 
with members of the baseball team to whom he has 
often distributed "Lucky's" and "I'd walk a mile for 
em's" when his gum ran out. He finds time to type 
his very gushing "line" and see it come into print once 
a week through the columns of the "Collegian" of 
which he is one of the editors. 



Turners Falls, Mass. Turners Falls High School

"The lid's off," he cried, and dashing madly out of 
bed he essayed to put it back on, only to find his 
pajamaed self exposed to the gaze of his open mouthed, 
wide eyed brethren. No 'copper' ever swung a meaner 
stick than 'Farwell' once seated before his well worn 
drums. 'Ted" is quiet in his manner, and his pleasing 
personality will certainly remain a memory to we who 
know him.

Flying feet and a Titian thatch distinguish our 
'■Paavo Nurmi". Dick is one of our most consistent 
pluggers on the cinders and in the study room. If one 
can only break through his armour of modesty and 
reserve he will find one of the most sincere and likeable 
chaps in the class.

Here, reader, is energy personified! "Demmie" is the 
most efficient little arranger of class smokers on record! 
There is a crying need for such organizers in the world 
today and we are sure that Demmie will be ready and 
willing to fill the need. Demmie came to school in'end- 
ing to earn his way through cutting hair. "VN'ith all due 
credit to Demraie's tonsorial ability it is interesting to 
note that he now works in the Hash house!

1904; Agricultural Education: Band (1, 2, 3); Class

tan Club: Menorah Society; Delta Phi Alpha. 

Fond (?) memories of the band are recalled at the 
sight of this rubicund visage smiling at us. "Goldy" 
wields some kind of horn about twice as big as himself 
with such energy that when the awful mouth of the 
thing was turned toward us parade days, the screaming 
commands of our captain were lost in its awful thunder! 
Vastly unlike his horn, "Goldy" never speaks unless 
spoken to. It may be that in this tremendous reserve 
of his is hidden a mind that will one day be up and doing 
poetry or philosophy; who knows.'

When you see a beautiful girl tripping across campus, 
note — has she dark, snappy eyes? If so, that is Hilda. 
"Her very frowns are fairer far, than smiles of other 
maidens are." Did you know that Hilda has a practi- 
cal hobby? It has been of long standing, but is now 
progressing by leaps and bounds toward her life work. 
As a florist she has earned her entire expenses to enable 
her to be a student at M. A. C. For her success she 
will long be remembered. Hilda is also one of our 
successful actresses.

"Goodie" will long be remembered for her sweet, 
modest, and self-conscious disposition. We doubt if 
she has ever committed a wrong deed or broken a single 
rule. Just peep into her room at any time and"Goodie" 
is quietly and diligently studying — such a studious, but 
happy little body we have never met before. 
"On one she smiled, and he was blest. 
She smiles elsewhere — we make a din? 
But 'twas not love which heaved her breast. 
Fair child! — it was the bliss within. "

Our model librarian! Em, in common with all the 
rest of us, has vacillated from one thing to another in 
his choice of his life work. He claims it's all settled 
now. "Huh!" we exclaim, very skeptically, unenthus- 
iastically, and hopelessly! Any one that knows just 
what they are going to do before they leave college 
ought to be shot! They're too lucky! Are you sure,

From the city of whips we have "Ray", our blonde 
athlete, student and good fellow. His popularity with 
his classmates is evinced by his election to Senate. 
His ability to "trip the light fantastic" brought him 
election to both Soph-Senior and Junior Prom Com- 
mittees and his fleetness of foot has been a marvel in 
basketball, track, and baseball. Week-end trips to 
Hartford, supposedly to study the tobacco situation in 
view of his life work, have caused us wonder because 
Ray seems unusually light-hearted after these journeys. 
We all admire and like him — long may he "Ray-ne"!

Although Jake claims to hail from Jamaica Plain, 
he really makes his home in Springfield. As a freshman 
we knew him as the "Crabbing second baseman" but he 
has developed into a multitude of characters: — one of 
M. A. C.'s few three-letter men, drummer and saxo- 
phonist extraordinary, and good .student. 

In brief, he is an all-round good kid, even though he 
does get called "Jake". 



Dracut, Mass. Lowell High School

"Danny" is another member of the great order of 
silent doers. As an "asst. manager" along with all the 
other neophytes, Danny stuck, with the result that he 
now holds the enviable position of next in line for foot- 
ball managership. Danny, in common with all the 
other members of this and any other college, is in doubt 
concrning his future work in life. The only observa- 
tion we can make is, that if he goes after it in the same 
determined manner with which he obtained his present 
enviable position on the football squad, complete suc- 
cess awaits his efforts.

Rarely does this devotee of Hazlitt and Shakespeare 
fare forth from his hive at the Apiary, where, "tis 
rumored, he sought lodgment in order that, being in an

he might pursue his entomological researches, practice

During his college career "Bill" has tried hard to 
follow out two ideas, one: — never to have any afternoon 
classes, and two: — never to take the same girl to a col- 
lege function twice. 

Bill is addicted to Ag. Ed. but seems unusually fond 
of our English courses. It is rumored that the passion- 
ate outbursts of Keats, Shelley, Byron, etc., as de- 
lineated by Prof. Patterson in English 50, so enthralled 
Bill, that he forgot the necessity of studying the hum- 
drum memory passages and nearly listened to the afore- 
said geniuses another year.

Ralph is a debater. Is that enough? He is also an 
extremely hopeful prospect for Phi Kappa Phi. He is 
also — er — witty! This last is his weakness! Ralph is 
clever in a debate, though. He seems to have an in- 
exhaustible vocabulary, which he unlimbers like a 
verbal roman candle, approaching, but not quite reach- 
ing, the sophomoric. He claims that he is going back 
to work on the farm; but he'll probably end up in the 
State House as Congressman for the district.

"Bud" is one of the budding, yea, blossoming mem- 
bers of '27. Although he impresses one as being very 
serious, he undoubtedly has an active sense of humor 
which sprouts in that little smile of his. As a member 
of the Senate and of the Honor Council, he is a repre- 
sentative of the best of college institutions. His nick- 
name of "Incubator" does not necessarily mean that he 
knows a flock of chickens.

Manchester-By-The-Sea, — this curly-haired beauty 
is as romantic as the name of the town he comes from. 
Singing Beach might have produced his vocal ability 
but it probably served more to condition his timbers 
racing with the waves. He races the seconds up here 
in the "college town", much too fast for a number of 
aspirants. He says that he may have not won many 
races but he played Milanion one day and captured the 
fair Atalanta. Dids't use golden apples, Vin? When 
Tom is not running, or studying his bugs, or rushing 
trays, (just step in the caf 'n see him sometime), he is 
urging some lively tunesout of a cornet.

If you want to establish hostilities with this prodigy

When his own country turned red hot, Krass shipped

A quiet, dreamy lad in Freshman English, John has 
decided that there is a greater need for his painstaking

If John succeeds in mastering his chosen science with 
the same sure thoroughness he exhibited in English 1, 
2. and 3, the coming generation may some day struggle 
through the complexities of Chemistry with the aid of 
some well written text-book from his hand. The best

Tommy, our self-convicted woman-hater, revels in

elusive." If history exams were ducks, we would have 
no fear for the feathered Anatidae. "Puddle" is quiet

his tenacious spirit and level head, success is certain.

The memories of the famous class of 1923 were re- 
vived with the arrival of "Spike" on the campus, after a 
pleasant vacation in the Marines. A great contribution 
of this "Half-wit", as he likes to call himself, was to in- 
troduce into our vocabulary many forceful expressions, 
such as "cut down", "work out", "take it easy", "tough 
racket" and others. We shall always remember 
"Spike" in connection with the brilliant victory of the

argumentation and horse back riding. However, other 
accomplishments may be placed to his credit. He is a 
"shark" in mathematics and professes the greatest con- 
tempt for all conventionalities. Although "Joe" 
majors in Ag. Ed. he will probably switch over very 
soon to Politics. "Joe" is pleasantly eccentric.

Apollo is passee! Despite his grecian profile and 
resemblance to Dan Cupid you can't trace "Mac" to 
mythology although he is a bit of a mystery. Though 
this careful, canny Scot is a wee bit taciturn, verj' pre- 
cise, and somewhat dignified, he has a taint of the 
"Deil", a love for good hard work, a heart for football, 
and of late — yes, it's work in the library, but not always 
with books, "Mac" "averring" otherwise without "loss 
of color '. Chemistry claims him.

"Ede" entered with the class of '26, but left and tried 
Skidmore for a year. As a result she found she pre- 
ferred "Aggie" as her Alma Mater and we are glad she 
did. Though she is apparently quiet and reserved, a

"Stretch" prepped a year at Westbrook Sera in Maine, 
which institution, following his graduation, became a

Not all of us can be athletes, musicians, artists, but 
here in the dark-eyed "Angle" we have the exemplifica- 
tion of Johnny Beckman, Paul Whiteman, and John 
Held, Jr. "Angle's" staunch support of 1927 activities 
and his contributions to "Squib" and "Index" are 
certainly noteworthj'. His philosophy of life is unique. 
To the professors, in his inimitable Latin manner, he 
states his iron-bound views and proceeds to either dis- 
miss the course with a wave of the hand to be taken 
later on or to pass it with such a grade as to make even

This determined looking person is the Business Mana- 
ger of this publication. He sees that none of these un- 
scrupulous business men take advantage of us innocent, 
callow college youths! He manages efficiently, too. 
Ken had the honor of being the first class president of

he has the business of the Index. We all predict that 
he will make a wonderful business man, — can you

Clayt is at least logical in majoring in Pomology, for 
lie is very well acquainted with peaches of one kind, and 
it is easy to see where his interest would extend to 
I lie kind that grows on trees. Far be it from us to say 
(hat he is a sheik, or anything like that, but at least it 
seems to be the truth that he is not out of his element 
when he finds himself in the company of the fairer por- 
tion of the population of this region. As a student, he 
seems to know his stuff, and that's saying a lot.

"Mull" never cared to exert himself along scholastic 
lines, altho he maintained his grades above the average 
with ease. 

Dancers will not soon forget him as the pianist shak- 
ing his head in rhythm with the efforts of his "Melodious 
Music Makers."" "Mull" has always been more than 
willing to lend his services to campus activities and tha 
college owes him a good deal. 

He is far from being a mollycoddle and his humor has 
a caustic subtlety which has gained him the utmost re- 
spect among his classmates.

If you care to see an exact replica of this burly brute, 
look in the works of Praiteles for a study of a Satyr. 
The statue that I saw was so much like Link that I 
should have been willing to swear that the model was a 
direct ancestor of our little Lincoln! Link is one of 
the few old men on our football squad that Kid Gore 
has to work with this coming season; so anyone can tell, 
when they see this six feet of beef and brawn going over 
for a touchdown, that it is Lincoln, '27!

"Norm" is one of our class problems, inclined to be 
moody and hard to understand. On the diamond he 
certainly is a wonder to behold, because there he often 
gives vent to six or seven of his unlimited stock of moods

this lanky youngster starts to stretch out into his cus-

Harry is one of the innumerable possessors of the

Harry is going to be a meteor!

padour you may at once mark them as a radical. 
Simple, isn't it? Radicals, you must know, are prone 
to argue. "Park" will argue with any one upon any 
subject from why they should have refrigerators in 
Greenland to the need for fur-lined razor blades among 
the Australian Bushmen! "Park" will no doubt end 
up in Congress; Start your campaign. Park!

"Joe" hails from the big city of Northampton and in

by his intermittent presence, and acclaims itself as his 
legal domicile. As a basketball player, — well words 
just won't suffice, you'll have to see him play, at least, 
it is true that he holds down a regular berth on the 
'Varsity, and that says a lot. He elects to battle with

If you meet a little fellow who is puffing in a curious 
syncopated time, you may be sure that it is "Ev" 
trying to work out a snappy new ending for the jazz 
that pours forth from that silver voiced trumpet of his. 
It is fitting that he be chairman of the Junior Prom

couple of hands at the daily meetings of the Ancient and

To his friends he is an easy-going, merry, "King Cole"

quite human, leaning strongly and romantically to the 
normal — (located at North Adams.) Despite his

The boy with the voice! Otto is the possessor of 
one of those awe-inspiring bass rumbles which he de- 
lighted in using at roll-call at drill. Otto's popularity 
is attested by the fact that several times has he held 
the office of class president. He is the best of com- 
panions having a choice collection of clean stories quite 
refreshing amid all the smut we are forced to laugh at 
shame-facedly here at school. Best of all, however, is 
Otto when he sings, in that gorgeous voice, those fine 
old German Beer Songs!

It takes perseverance to work for six years to get into

the best of the bug-hunters. He tends to Coleoptero-

bie has been the life of two of our Aggie Revue acts,

from the center of the stage in the premiere of Prof. 
Rand's Sidney. He played on our Frosh football and 
baseball teams and on our class teams the next year as 
well, winning the '27-'28 football war with a sixty-five-

one of the outstanding heroes of our first banquet scrap

Since that time he has "Hit" his studies as efficiently as 
he did his opponent on that memorable night. Russ

"Don" will ever remain in the memory of the writer

Don gazes upon the seething life of the campus with a 
sardonic quiet rather confusing too many of the little

this can be sensed in his very bearing, (he rides a bi-

that purpose!

"Brute" is not short for Brutus. No, this is not a 
diminutive, but the whole works. If you had seen the 
man work in a banquet scrap, you would agree with 
those who know. He, nevertheless, gives the impres- 
sion that he is a very modest young man, in spite of his 
abilities. Ag. Ec. is his major, and although he isn't 
very big, his brain must have a lot of wrinkles in it, for 
that is a major that gives a lot of opportunity for the

Ctosi of 1928 

THE CLASS OF '28 has assumed a position of some importance in this insti- 
tution. What we lack in talent we certainly make up for in numbers! 
When the end of our first college day was at a close the present juniors, (then 
sophomores), gazed at one another in consternation. There were frosh every- 
where! We easily won the boxing and wrestling bouts Razoo night and as easily 
lost the nightshirt parade. When we were allowed another chance at the doughty 
class of '27 in the rope pull we heaved gloriously with the result that innumerable 
sophomores ran their clothes through a wringer that evening! With much fear 
and trembling we approached the eve of the banquet scrap. Although we out- 
numbered the sophomores three to one the terrors of the unknown were too much 
for us and we went down to defeat, "battling gloriously"! This, of course, was 
all in our freshman year. Now, as proud and haughty sophomores, we are en- 
deavoring to deflate the egos of the class of '29 with very little success, it would 
seem. The various interclass events were won and lost in about an even ratio, — 
who cares about inter-class events anyway once they are over.'' So far goes the 
history of '28. The open door of our next two years beckons us. May we make 
more renowned history in these two great years before us.

Clagg ?|igtorp, 1929 

WE, the class of 1929, started out on the biggest adventure of our humdrum 
lives when, some few months ago, as a rather motley and leaderless mob, we 
came into a new land called "College". At the boundaries of the "Land of 
Learning", we were met by the er-er friendly Sophomores, each of whom carried 
an olive branch in one hand, and a paddle in the other. We were allowed to be- 
come a part of the college group under certain rules which, at first, seemed rather 
strange, but which, we were assured, had been so modified that they would not be 
difficult to obey. No longer are offenders punished by "Pond Parties". A new 
form of punishment was instituted by the Sophomores which furnished much 
more amusement for everyone. Our Sophomore friends soon challenged us to 
several pleasant scraps. The first encounter, the sixty man rope pull was won by 
our valiant Freshmen. The football game came next; here the Sophomores went 
down to defeat. We showed our supremacy in the boxing and wrestling matches; 
but neither the Sophomores nor we would admit defeat in the six man Rope pull. 
Then, as obedient Freshmen, we decided that it would be well to let the Sopho- 
mores have a victory or two; so we allowed them to tear off our nocturnal attire 
during the Night Shirt Parade, and shoot baskets without interruption at the 
Interclass Basketball Game. It is with great pleasure that we are looking for- 
ward to future scraps with our "superiors", the Sophomores.

College Cusitom^ 

A MONG the most pleasant of our memories of four years at college will be 
-^ ^ those that have to do with our experiences with college customs, and so, 
with the lack of accuracy and the abundance of aureate hues that usually char- 
acterize the reminiscences of the old-timer, we shall proceed to give a little light on 
those college customs that the undergraduate of today is accjuainted with in one 
form or another. 

The oldest activity which is internal as regards the college, is the historic 
six-man rope pull or tug-o-war. It dates back to pre-historic days, but is first 
mentioned by the class of '84. '87 is the first class that is named as having won. 
Back in the good old days, there was always a great deal of secrecy about practice 
for the annual rope pull between the Frosh and Sophs, for when the two classes 
came near each other when practice was in progress, there was a violent explosion, 
with the rope as the objective: and many was the secret sortie that had as an aim 
the possession of the opposing class's practice rope. The rope pull was always 
by challenge, and has been won by lengths varying from one and one half inches 
to over thirty feet. 

Chronologically parallel to the six-man rope pull has been the rush, in various 
forms. It was always impromptu up to the time when cane and pole rushes were 
tried for a few years. Now it is in existence in the form of the Night Shirt Parade, 
which we know. The predominating form of the rush was the campus rush, when 
the Sophs attempted to push the Frosh off from the campus, and this was a 
frequently recurring affair, until "0-t and "05 abandoned the idea in face of threat 
of expulsion in the event of its occurrence. 

Banciuet scraps have been in existence for some time, and '96 counted it a 
coup by being the first to have their banquet off campus, and went to Brattleboro, 
Vermont. AVith the spread of the activities, a sort of skirmishing warfare was 
conducted within a wide radius in the Connecticut Valley. In '07 and for 
several years thereafter, considerable money was paid for property damage by 
the classes, so the scope of scraps was limited to the campus, in self-defence, by 
the faculty, for the college was being criticized severely for the activities of the 
undergraduates. In '14, the scrap was on the common in Hadley, and the town 
fire department turned the fire hose on the combatants and cooled their ardor. 
When the banquet scrap was limited to the campus, property protection required 
rules that soon reduced the procedure to an all-night bivouac of the two camps 
with a battle by the dawn's first illumination. As a cure for this, rules were 
revised so that the '27-'28 scrap lasted all night, with recurring attacks by the 
Frosh on the encampment of the Sophs. This was a distinct improvement, and 
called for considerable strategy on the part of both classes. 

The custom of pond parties, that noble institution of the past was unofficial 
until '09, and it was not always the Frosh that went in, for '05, '07, '09 threw their 


elders, the Sophs in for a swim. In '09, the parties were supervised by the 
Senate. This supervision was an indication of the trend of the times, for in '08, 
the class of '12, in atonement for their violent hazing, agreed to use their influ- 
ence in the cause of the abolition of hazing. Pond parties were the order of the 
day until the time of their abolition in '2.5, when the general trend of several 
years culminating brought about their end. 

The inter-class activity best known by people off the campus is the sixty 
man rope pull. This was designed to take the place of the class rushes, and was 
first introduced in '06. Although there were some misgivings as to its success, 
the fears were ungrounded, for it is the most successful event that is open to the 
public. At the time of the first pull, to preclude the shirking of the defeated 
team when the time for the wade came, the class captains were put on the part of 
the rope nearest the pond and the results were favorable. 

About the minor customs, nothing very definite is on record. Frosh caps 
seem to be a comparatively recent innovation, for the class histories say nothing 
about them, with the exception of that of '96, which says; "when we laid aside the 
Freshman derby to take the tile and cane", which may indicate that Frosh were 
obliged to wear derbies, and again may only indicate that tile hats were "ver- 
boten". The class of '13 is the first to appear in their Index picture wearing 
frosh caps of the present style. The reference to canes in the '96 history is inter- 
esting, for it indicates the struggle of the early classes to forbid the entering men 
the right to carry canes. '78 was the first class to substitute class canes for class 
pins, and evidently set a precedent for the succeeding classes. Jumping "nines" 
is a recently established custom, for, as far as records show, there were not set-in 
numerals until recently. Ringing the bell after victories was evidently a gradual 
acquisition among the privileges of the Frosh. 

In 1900, the college athletic letter was changed to an "M" It had hitherto 
been M.A.C., but was mistaken for the insignia of some athletic club so it was 
changed. The class of '04 first took action in composing their class yell with 
"Massachusetts" in place of the former "Aggie." This was soon ratified by the 
college and the present long yell was inaugurated. The Index contained an 
editorial at that time stating among other things that "Agricultural" for "Aggie" 
was neither acceptable nor appropriate, while agriculture held a minor place in 
the curriculum of the college. The name "Massachusetts State College" was 
suggested as fitting. With the class of '03 the first co-ed came to M.A.C. With 
the succeeding classes the registration of co-eds increased to its present size. 
With their advent, there came into existence the society of "Peek-a-boos" which 
is perhaps the ancestor of the present "sororal" organization. Delta Phi Gamma. 

These college customs, and a few interesting facts for good measure, make the 
burden of this treatise. We do not pretend to have mentioned all the college cus- 
toms, for many of them are lost among the cobwebs of history and reminiscence. 
Times have changed greatly, for the college used to be self-contained, with all the 
students, or, shall we say, those present, in North and South Colleges. Then 
dormitory life and college life were one, and the dormitory doings added then, as 
they sometimes do now, a tang to the activities current to our sojourn here. But 
even without the dormitory life, the college customs in their varied manifestations, 
give a zest to the days that will soon be only memories.

T70R those of us who have spent any time at all in the 
-*- Infirmary this writeup will hold singular interest. It 
certainly has come to be a campus institution and entitled 
to its place in our yearbook. 

And not a little of its fame is due to the most con- 
genial, helpful, and sincere resident nurse. Miss Christopher, 
or "Cris" as she is known by her "gang". From nursing 
our six foot athletes with their bruises and scrapes, 
to daubing a blister with whatever she does daub it, 
(is it iodine?), "Cris" has performed everything connected 
with minor surgical and medical work. 
The patients in the quarantine ward during the scarlet fever epidemic will 
not soon forget their sojourn, which ordinarily should have been a most apa- 
thetic and listless vacation, but which turned out to be a pleasant six weeks. 

The class of 1927 appreciates the work which the Infirmary is doing and as a 
slight evidence of this appreciation is dedicating this space in its book.

^tpsiical Cbutation department 

THE Department of Physical Education at M. A. C. was first organized in 
1909, the first director being Dr. Percy L. Reynolds who also coached the 
track team. Professor Curry S. Hicks, the present head of the department, came 
here in 1911 from Michigan State Normal College, and it has been under his 
guidance that the work of the department has been expanded. 

Priorto 1911 the program of intercollegiate athletics was entirely independent. 
Coaching of the various teams was carried on by men hired for the season only. 
Harold M. Gore, who took charge of freshman athletics in the fall of 1913 follow- 
ing his graduation from M. A. C, was the first department staff coach. From 
then on the personnel and scope of the staff increased until in 1919 came the regu- 
lation requiring all teams to be placed under the tutelage of a department staff 
member. M. A. C. was one of the first colleges in New England to adopt this 

One of the notable achievements of the department was its inauguration and 
direction of the construction of Alumni Field in 1914. Before that time the sole 
athletic field available was the one between South College and the Drill Hall 
where football and baseball were played. The history of the building of Alumni 
Field is a long and interesting tale in itself, but suffice it to say that Professor 
Hicks visited twenty-three state universities and examined their athletic fields 
to gain an idea of the most desirable features to incorporate into ours, and then 
the students of Aggie "dug down" with picks and shovels and laid drains on the 
sight selected. The sole contribution made by the state was the donation of the 
land which it already owned. 

Although fortunate in providing outdoor facilities, the department has never 
received the requisite funds for improving the indoor equipment, which is no 
better today than it was 15 years ago. The Drill Hall floor was condemned for 
required sports in 1916, so only those who take part in voluntary athletics are 
forced to congregate in this absolutely unsafe and unsanitary apology for a gym- 
nasium. Due to the need for sanitary accommodations, the only required 
classes in physical education are those for freshmen and sophomores which are 
given during the fall and spring terms, and which consist only of outside organized 
athletics. A desirable innovation in recent years has been the encouragement of 
winter sports like skating, skiing, and hiking. Hikes to Mt. Toby take place 
every Saturday during the winter term, and facilities for enjoying profitable 
exercise nearer home have been provided by the construction of a toboggan slide 
and the purchase of an ice-planer for the Aggie Pond. 

The prime requisite of the department is at least the basement of a gymna- 
sium with sanitary showers, locker rooms, a swimming pool, and dressing rooms. 
Lack of funds rather than lack of definite aims restricts the department in its en- 
deavors. In its efficient conduct of intercollegiate athletics, the department ranks 
second to none, but in its task of reaching the man who really needs physical 
development, who cannot participate in voluntary athletics, the staff is hindered 
by the scarcity of necessary equipment.

1925 ^eagon 

THE 1925 baseball season, although not extraordinarily successful, was the 
most satisfactory season in the relation of victories to defeats since 1922. 
The schedule of sixteen games was the longest attempted since 1921. Coach 
"Red" Ball developed a nine which won six contests and tied two out of a total 
of sixteen played. 

Captain Carl Cahill proved to be of invaluable aid as a leader both offensively 
and defensively. He covered a wide range of territory in center field, and when 
at bat, showed phenomenal speed in reaching the initial sack. 

The first encounter of the season at Alumni Field against Norwich proved to 
be a thriller, the game finally being called at the end of the fourteenth inning on 
account of darkness. The score then read 1 to 1. The game was essentially a 
pitchers' duel with the advantage going to Williams, the Norwich southpaw, who 
lasted the entire distance. 

Williams was the victor by the count of 4 to 3 in another long struggle at 
Williamstown on April 29th by virtue of two costly errors made by the Agates in 
the unlucky thirteenth. The hitting of the M. A. C. nine was much better than 
that displayed against Norwich; but errors were too frequent. 

The Aggie team gained its first triumph of the season by defeating Wesleyan 
3 to 1, on Alumni Field. The visitors were unable to tally after their first term 
at bat. Nash pitched a very effective game, but was accorded poor support by 
his team-mates. 

"Em" Grayson's Amherst nine overcame the Agates on Alumni Field in a 
well-played encounter which was decided by Woodruff, the visiting pitcher, in 
the sixth inning. His hit brought in the winning run, each team having previously 
shoved one man across the rubber. 

"Red" Ball presented a changed line-up in the next game at Alumni Field, 
and Bowdoin succumbed to the Maroon and White by a score of 3 to 1. Excellent 
pitching, improved stickwork, and errorless fielding by the home team marked this 

The Aggie nine went on a batting rampage against Clark at Worcester on 
May 16th and piled up more runs in their first appearance at the plate than they 
had in any previous game. Rainault, a portsider, and Malley, substitute re- 
ceiver, received their baptism of fire by serving as the M. A. C. battery until the 
fifth frame. 

The Agates subdued the M. I. T. Beavers in a prolonged encounter on Alumni 
Field which finally resulted in a 1 to victory. Taylor scored on a beautiful 
squeeze play with Captain Cahill at the bat in the last half of the twelfth. 



Another whitewash was applied by the M. A. C. nine for a fourth consecutive 
win with B. U. as the victim. The Agates tallied thrice, but the visitors could do 
nothing with the smoky offerings of "Milt" Taylor, who registered the only no 
hit no run game of the season, and the first one for at least a decade here at Aggie. 

The Sabrina nine, with "Gerry" Woodruff on the mound, humbled the Mass. 
Aggie club a second time by timely hitting and heady defensive work. The 
Agates outhit their opponents, but threw away several chances to .score by careless 
base-running. Nash pitched craftily and certainly deserved better luck. 

New Hampshire topped the Massachusetts boys in another contest in which 
the losing team outhit the winners. The visitors pushed across five runs in the 
hectic eighth inning to sew up the game. The final score was 8 to 6, for the 
Aggies managed to come back and score three times themselves in the final session. 

The second tie game of the season was played at Medford against Tufts in a 
pouring rain which necessitated halting the fray in the eighth inning with the 
score knotted at 5 all. Several long drives were poled out, but errors were fre- 
quent, and the lead wavered from one team to the other. 

The next day, which was Memorial Day, the Agates journeyed to Middle- 
town and met an improved Wesleyan nine which secured sweet revenge for their 
earlier defeat at M. A. C. When the .struggle was over, AVesleyan boasted a 10 to 
2 lead. The Aggie batters simply had an off day, while the Middletowners ac- 
cepted everything the Aggie pitchers offered and sent it back with vim. 

The most hectic spectacle of the season took place at Springfield College. 
Springfield was held scoreless after the fourth inning, but up to that time they had 
amassed a total of 14 runs, while the Agates scored only once. The Aggie nine 
completed three double plays, but to offset this, they committed eleven misplays 
Only seven of Springfield's runs were earned. 

Union nosed out the M. A. C. team at Schenectady in a game notable for 
its heavy hitting. Both teams collected a total of 24 hits, the individual star 
being Temple, who drove out a single, a triple, and a long home run. Union did 
its best work in the sixth session by tallying five times and driving Taylor from 
the mound. 

The Massachusetts Aggies triumphed over their Connecticut rivals at Storrs 
on June 12th by a score of 4 to 3. Nash pitched a very creditable game. M. A. 
C. scored once in the second inning and three times in the third. Connecticut 
then monopolized scoring honors for two appearances at the plate and counted 
twice, but neither nine made the circuit after the sixth inning. 

The following day the Connecticut Aggies reciprocated for our kindness in 
defeating them at home by trimming the M. A. C. team, 8 to 0, in a commence- 
ment season game on Alumni Field. Only three of the visitors' runs were earned. 
Costly lapses by the battery were responsible for several scores. 

As a whole, with the exception of a short period in mid-season, the stickwork 
of the team was rather weak, gaining for them the appellation of "the hitless 


wonders". The infield was inclined to err a little too frequently, but the outfield 
was steady, and it was not until near the close of the schedule that large scores 
were amassed against the Agates. In Taylor and Nash, Aggie had two effective 
hurlers, and although McGeoch, their battery mate, had had little previous ex- 
perience, he played an aggressive game. 

The no hit no run game pitched by Taylor, and the fourteen inning tie 
against Norwich in which Nash and Taylor both worked, were the two most un- 
usual occurrences of the season.

A LTHOUGH ten candidates responded to Coach Derby's call for material 
■'■ *• for the relay team, Captain Ross was the only veteran. This necessitated 
the training of a team made up almost entirely of new and unexperienced men. 
The season cannot be considered a failure in spite of the fact that the team won 
only one of the three meets scheduled because it helped to prepare some of the 
undergraduates for the coming season. 

The season started with a triangular relay with U. of N. H. and U. of Me., at 
the B. A. i\. games in Boston in which M. A. C. finished last, the U. of M. finishing 
first. The Maine runners outclassed the M. A. C. team but the latter might have 
worried the N. H. quartet had not one of our runners slipped at the start thereby 
losing 10 yards which he was unable to make up. 

The M. A. C. runners went down to defeat in their second meet by losing a 
dual meet at the K. of C. meet in Boston to the B. U. quartet. 

Smarting under two defeats the M. A. C. team ended their winter track season 
by winning from W. P. I. in Worcester 38-30. Sniffen was high scorer of the 
meet, taking two firsts — in the 30-yard and in the quarter mile. His quarter 
mile was the best race of the meet. He started well and held his own pace for 
over three laps regardless of the position of his opponents. Then he opened up a 
sprint which carried him past Thompson, Worcester's star dash man in spite of 
the latter's futile burst of speed and finished many yards ahead.

1925 Spring ^ratfe ^eas(on 

THE spring track team established a record wliicli is one of the most successful 
in the past few years. The team won three out of four dual meets, placed 
third in the Eastern Intercollegiate Meet at Springfield and scored three points 
in the New England Intercollegiate Meet at Boston, the same number of points 
that was scored last year and which is the highest number which any M. A. C. 
team has scored in this competition. 

The initial track meet of the season resulted in a decisive win for M. A.C. 
over Norwich 69-47. The runners were handicapped by a strong wind, but in the 
field events a better showing was made. Thurlow won the discus throw by throw- 
ing the discus 114.2 feet, over 17 feet further than his nearest Norwich rival. 
Sniffen was high scorer in the meet, capturing first place in three events: the 100 
and 2'20-yard dashes and broad jump. 

In the second dual meet M. A. C. won from Tufts in one of the closest and 
most hotly contested meets ever entered. The final score was 64-62, but the result 
was in doubt up to the last minute. White, who would have been a point winner 
in the broad jump and pole vault was unable to compete because of injuries. 
Sniffen proved his versatility by taking three firsts and one second. In the 100- 
yard dash he equalled the college record of 10 1/5 seconds and in the 220 he broke 
the record by running it in 22 2/5 seconds. 

At the Eastern Intercollegiate Meet at Springfield the team scored a total 
of 25 points and landed third place. It lost second place to Northwestern who 
scored 30 points. 

On May 16 the M. A. C. team won its third dual meet of the season by defeat- 
ing W. P. I. 64-62, a struggle which saw two of the M. A. C. records fall. Tucker 
broke the pole vault record of 10 ft., 6 in., made by Burton Googins '16 by clearing 
the bar at 10 ft., 7 in. In the broad jump Thompson broke the record made by 
Sniffen the year before at the New England Intercollegiate Meet by making a 
jump of 21 ft., 9^ in. 

In the New England Intercollegiate Meet at Boston Snift'en repeated his 
record of the year before by being the only M. A. C. man to score. He placed 
second in the broad jump, one place better than last year. His best leap of 22 ft., 
6 in., broke the college record of 21 ft., 9)4 in., which was established the previous 
week at Worcester by Thompson. 

In the last meet M. A. C. went down to defeat at the hands of the University 
of New Hampshire 90-36. The University of New Hampshire was the strongest 
opponent the M. A. C. team faced, the team having scored 11>^ points in the

' I ''HE cross country seasonof 1925 was one of the most successful the college 
-*■ has enjoyed in many years. The harriers lost only one dual meet out of a 
total of six. Wesleyan won the honors of being the only team to defeat M. A. C. 
this fall. 

The first meet against Rhode Island State at Kingston, Rhode Island, re- 
sulted in a victory for M. A. C, the score being 27-29. This is the first time in 
five years that the Rhode Island State harriers have su.stained a defeat on their 
home course. 

The next meet resulted in a decisive victory over Williams with a score of 21- 
■36, nearly an exact reversal of the score at Williamstown two years ago when 
Williams won 19-37. Crofts, who finished eighth in the New England Intercolle- 
giate Meet at Boston last fall, was the first to cross the line, but he was closely 
pressed throughout the race by Nottebart. 

Wesleyan came next and handed M. A. C. its only defeat of the season at 
Middletown by an over-whelming score 15-43. Wesleyan, later in the fall, was 
tied by Williams in a triple meet in which Amherst was the third entrant. Both 
Amherst and Williams were decisively conquered by the M. A. C. harriers in dual 

The following meet resulted in an over-whelming victory for M. A. C. over 
W. P. I. by a score of 15-50. In this meet W. P. I. was completely outraced from 
start to finish. The entire M. A. C. squad, finished seven abreast and thus ran 
up the lowest score of the season. 

The victory over W. P. I. seemed to stimulate the team and the following 
week the squad defeated Amherst in the last home meet of the season by a score of 

In the final meet of the season the M. A. C. harriers annexed another victory 
to their record by defeating Boston University with a score of 25-32 over the 
Franklin Park course in Jamaica Plain. 

Following the B. U. meet the team went to Boston to take part in the New 
England Intercollegiate meet. In this meet the team finished seventh, the best 
showing since 1919. 

The outstanding feature of the record made this season was team work dis- 
played. Only once did an M. A. C. man come in for a first place and in this case 
the entire squad finished seven abreast to conquer AV. P. I. This season's team 
is by far the best team that M. A. C. has produced in many years.

THE l!)'2.i FOOTBALL SEASON will vie with the preceding year for honors 
in the history of the pigskin at Aggie, for "the little red machine" of 1925, 
forced to "travel on the rims at times," brought home victories in six out of eight 
contests, bringing the total number of games won in the last two years to twelve 
in comparison with three losses and one tie. 

The Agates had an exceptionally strong running attack which would not be 
denied, its tackle-to-tackle offensive working to perfection. The real strength 
of this assault is best revealed by statistics which show that Aggie outrushed every 
single one of her opponents in 192.5, amassing a total of 133 first downs to 43 by 
her opponents, an average of 16 to 5 for each game. The team, directed by one 
of the best quarterbacks Aggie has seen in recent years, displayed teamwork and 
cooperation of the highest order. The work of the line was unexcelled, but the 
backfield was considerably retarded in their defensive work by knee injuries which 
were particularly troublesome during the past season. In nearly every case, the 
opponents scored as a result of a long run in which a speedy opponent eluded the 
Aggie backfield. 

Assisting Coach Gore in this year's work were several M.A.C. Alumni. 
George Cotton'22 of Woburn, captain of the 1921 "White Rats", the last team 
to defeat Tufts until this year, had charge of the line. Prof. Curry S. Hicks 
coached the ends, while "Pop" Clark '83 returned again to drill C team. In pre- 
season workouts many interested Alumni helped develop the squad, among whom 
were "Red" Ball '21, "Ed" Tumey '23, "Eddie" Bike '24, "Charlie" McGeoch '15, 
"Sol" Gordon '25, George Shumway '25, and "Joe" Cormier '26. 

Although the squad which the coaches first viewed was the smallest to report 
since the war, quality rather than quantity seemed to be in evidence. The former 
characteristic was well demonstrated in the first game at Lewiston, Maine, on 
October 3rd, for Bates was literally submerged by a 19 to score. The rain was 
pouring and the mud was ankle deep, but the visitors sailed through the Bates 
team at will. During the first half, the Bates team had the ball in its possession 
just twice, and they chose to kick on the first play on each occasion. At no time 
during the entire game did Bates succeed in rushing the ball within sixty yards of 
the Aggie goal. 

Norwich was the next victim of the Agates by a score of 19 to on the fol- 
lowing Saturday in a game played on Alumni Field. This encounter was dis- 


tinguished for a powerful M.A.C. offense and an equally strong wind which ren- 
dered playing difficult and chilled the spectators to the bone. Moberg and 
Sullivan made several long gains and "Sully" scored early in the first half. 
Shortly afterward a forward pass from Moberg to Hilyard advanced the ball 22 
yards to the Soldiers" 10-yard stripe from where "Buddy" Moberg went through 
the line for the second count. A new Aggie luminary appeared in the third 
quarter when "Eddie" Haertl emerged from the Norwich line, dodged the 
secondary defense, and dashed 20 yards for a touchdown. 

For the third time the M.A.C. goal line remained uncrossed by virtue of a 
13 to victory over Conn. Aggie at Storrs before a record-breaking Alumni- 
Day crowd on October 17th. Coach "Dolly" Dole, a former team-mate of 
"Kid" Gore's, boasted an eleven-letter-men team which had been the only eleven 
to triumph over the Agates in 192-1.. Their sterling defense was equaled by that 
of their visitors', however, who, moreover, flashed an irrestible attack in the 
second period which netted two touchdowns. The second half saw the Connec- 
ticut defense tighten, but they never came nearer the M.A.C. goal line than the 
-10-yard mark and were able to make only one first down. 

Worcester Tech, although badly defeated in the next contest on Alumni 
Field, gained the distinction of being the first team to score on Aggie during the 
season by tallying 19 points against 64 by the Agates. Sullivan, with three 
touchdowns to his credit, and Moberg, with four, featured the day for Aggie, 
but "Dick" Converse, All-New-England backfield star, and "Joe" Guidi of 
W.P.I, provided breath-taking excitement for the spectators. The former 
dashed 90 yards down the sidelines after receiving a punt on his own ten-yard 
stripe, while the latter broke loose and ran seventy-five yards for another score. 
A different type of offensive was staged by M.A.C. in this game, a battering of the 
ends which proved remarkably effective with excellent interference. 

The courageous Agates failed to break the Pratt Field jinx on October 31st 
and were vanquished by the best team that Amherst has had in twenty years. 
The final score was 27 to 0, but it does not indicate the relative merits of the two 
elevens. M.A.C. made three more first downs than Amherst, but could not show 
the needed punch at the right time. At the close of the first half Aggie had ad- 
vanced the ball to Amherst's 2-yard line, but the Jeffmen held three times and 
then intercepted a pass on the fourth down. The speed of the Amherst back- 
field was the only point of superiority over the Agates who had a line fully the 
equal of the Purple and White's and who had a perfected offense capable of gain- 
ing 64 yards in an unbroken march. Captain-elect "Joe" Hilyard distinguished 
himself in his support of the line by his hard, sure tackling and his alertness in 
intercepting forwards. 

On November 14th the Agates returned to the winning column at the 
expense of Lowell Textile, which was forced to accept the short end of a 41 to 6 


score on Alumni Field. "Eddie" Haertl provided several spectacular gains for 
M.A.C., a 70-yard sally being his most notable achievement. 

The most exciting and probably the best-played game on Alumni Field 
during the 192.5 season came on the following Saturday when Tufts was con- 
(juered by a score of 6 to 4, the first time that the eleven from Medford has bowed 
to Aggie since 1921. The series between the two rivals (started in 1886) is now 
even, each college having won ten games while three have been ties. Tufts only 
scores came as a result of safeties, the first after a blocked punt in the second 
quarter, and the second, an intentional safety in the final period. In the latter 
case, Aggie had held the Jumbos on the three-yard line and gained possession of 
the ball. From the unfavorable position of the team, a kick would have been 
likely to have been blocked by the cross-bar, so the Agates took the safety, thus 
receiving the oval on the 30-yard stripe from whence Moberg kicked out of danger. 
The M.A.C. eleven, featuring straight football, made several long marches giving 
them a chance to score, but on only one occasion, in the third quarter after five 
successive first downs, was a tally forthcoming. 

Those loyal rooters who were among the holiday throng at Pratt Field in 
Springfield on Thanksgiving morning witnessed a thrilling exibition of football 
between two well-drilled, well-conditioned teams. The Agates were leading, 
13 to 12, well into the final quarter when Springfield, growing desperate as the end 
of the struggle approached, attempted a "shoestring" play which proved suc- 
cessful. This play, proved to be M.A.C's undoing. Springfield's other touch- 
downs had followed long runs by "Bob" Berry, but the Home City boys were able 
to make but 8 first downs against the 14 rolled up by the Maroon and White. 
The polished tackle-to-tackle offensive of the Agates was the cause of both their 
scores, the second tally coming after a 63-yard drive which included six successive 
first downs. "Buddy" Moberg's punting was even better than usual in his final 
football game for Aggie. 

The line-plunging ability of the Agates has led the press to speak of them 
frequently as "the husky farmers", but a glance at the weights of the backfield 
letter-men: 154, 154, 151, 146, and 144 pounds respectively show no excess 
weight. This is characteristic of the team as a whole. In fact, Worcester Tech 
was the only team played in 1925 which did not outweigh the Agates or at least 
equal them in weight. 

Another prevalent opinion is the belief that football players here at M.A.C, 
as well as elsewhere, are poor students. As a matter of fact, the three-year 
averages of the ten senior members of the squad range from 70.4 to 86.8 with a 
composite average of 79.4, which is considerably higher than the general average 
for all students in the college. 

Statistics show that Capt "Larry" Jones has played every minute in at least 
sixteen consecutive games, never having missed a play during his last two years 


as varsity end. In addition he was chosen again as an All-New-England end, 
while "Hal" Thurlow, our "Tiny"guard, was awarded a position on the same 
mythical combination. 

The Class of 1926 will take away one of the strongest groups of football men 
representing a single class at M.A.C. "Larry" Jones, "Al" Gustafson, "Red" 
Sullivan, "Buddy" Moberg, and "Fat" Gavin have all won the coveted "M" 
three times. "Phil" Couhig, the Agates' scrappy little center, and "Hal" Thur- 
low are letter men of two years' standing, while "Chet" Nichols, "Dick" Fes- 
senden, "Johnnie" Tulenko, Myron Smith, "Fat" Baker and "Ham" Richardson 
have each one letter to his credit. A nucleus of only four letter-men remains for 
the 1926 eleven. Captain-elect "Joe" Hilyard'27, "Gerry" Amstein'27, "Eddie" 
Haertr27, and "Al" Cook'28. Upon these men will rest part of the responsibility 
of attempting to equal the record set by "the little red machine" of 1925.

I ^HREE veterans from the 19'-25 hockey team reported for practice on New 
-*- Year's Day, Captain "Buddy" Moberg, Royal W. Potter, and Cary D. Palmer. 
"Red" Ball '21 was again given the coaching assignment, and the season's 
record gives adequate testimony to his ability, when the condition of the weather 
and the lack of capable substitute material are taken into consideration. The 
lack of suitable ice caused the cancellation of four games out of the original 
schedule of twelve, and although a larger number of candidates than usual tried 
out for the team, many of them were ine.xperienced. 

Three sophomores, Howard J. Abrahamson, Joseph H. Forest, and Paul F. 
Frese were selected to complete the team which played the major portion of nearly 
every contest. Frederick W. Swan saw the most service among the substitutes. 

The season opened rather inauspiciously on January 9th with a loss to 
M. I. T. at Amherst by a score of 3 to 0. The visiting se.xtet showed the effects 
of its practice in the Boston Arena, while the Agates, who had been handicapped 
by warm weather and poor ice, were unable to bring much teamwork into play. 

The next contest, which was held at Clinton, New York, on the following 
Friday, resulted in a defeat for Aggie. Hamilton emerged on the long end of a 5 
to 2 score, but only after a strenuous battle which was decided in the final minutes 
of play. The count was tied at 1 all at the opening of the final period, but Van 
Vleet, the Hamilton captain, tallied, and fresh substitutes were sent in against 
the tiring Agates, who were unable to withstand the reinvigorated assault. 
"Joe" Forest scored the two Aggie goals. 

The M. A. C. sextet won its first game the next day, however, by outplaying 
R. P. I. at Troy. The score was 2 to 1, and Captain "Buddy" Moberg featured 
the struggle, shooting both the Aggie goals in the final session to gain the victory. 
Although the work of the team was not so good as that displayed in the Hamilton 
game, nevertheless, the Agates justly deserved to win. 

Following this encounter came an enforced vacation of more than a week 
owing to the mild weather which prevailed. During this period three important 
games were canceled, games with Dartmouth, New Hampshire, and Bates, all 
three of which would have been playeil away from home. Cold weather returned 
just in time to give the Agates a single day's practice before meeting Amherst in 
the only clash of the season between the two rivals. The teams met on Pratt 
Rink on January 26th, but a scoreless tie was the outcome, the game being called 
because of the glare of arc lights on the ice. The town championship therefore 
remained undecided, for a second game between the two colleges, scheduled for 
February 18th, was never played on the account of the lack of ice. 


One of the most exciting struggles took place on Mid- Winter-Alumni-Day 
when Middlebury was declared the victor after two overtime periods. Play was 
extremely fast, and the Agates outplayed their opponents throughout the game, 
yet they could not lodge the puck in the Middlebury cage, largely because of the 
exceptional guarding of the visiting goalie. "Joe" Forest scored the only M. A. C. 
goal in the third period to match the single point which Whittemore had made 
in the opening session. No further score was forthcoming until the second over- 
time period when Whittemore tallied again. 

The Army bowed to the Agates in the next game played on February 10th at 
West Point in a snowstorm. The ice was in excellent condition, however, and an 
aggressive, speedy contest ensued, which was marked by the good passing and 
.sterling defense of the M. A. C. pucksters. The Army made its lone tally in the 
initial period, but "Red" Potter tied the score at the beginning of the second. 
With four minutes to play. Captain "Buddy" Moberg took a pass from Forest 
and turned the puck into the net for the deciding margin. 

New Hampshire was the second victim of the Maroon and White sextet within 
a week, losing by a score of 1 to 3 to the Agates on February 13th. This game, 
originally scheduled in Amherst as the second of a home-and-home series, was 
staged at Durham on New Hampshire's new rink as one of the attractions at their 
winter carnival. New Hampshire continued the record set by all the other 
opponents of the Aggie team by scoring first, but Forest, Moberg, and Frese 
tallied successively in each period to decide the contest for M. A. C. 

Williams shut out the Agates with a vengeance in the final encounter of the 
winter, the final score reading 7 to 0, but the M. A. C. sextet played hard 
the superior Purple aggregation and kept them from tallying in the last period. 
This was the largest number of points amassed against Aggie during the 19'-26 
season, a much better record than that of the previous year. 

It is almost impossible to give special mention to any one member of the 
team, so well balanced was the sextet, but the skating and stickwork of Captain 
Herbert E. Moberg stood out in nearly every encounter. His scoring record was 
equalled by "Joe" Forest, who was also particularly aggressive at all times. 
The excellent work of Aggie's reliable goalie, "Dinty" Palmer, also deserves recog- 
nition. Potter, Moberg, and Palmer will all be lost to the team next year, but a 
promising nucleus of four men, Forest, Abrahamson, Frese, and Swan remains.

^eagon 1926 

T)Y winning twelve out of fourteen games on the schedule, the Aggie quintet of 
-'-' 1926 surpassed the record of the victorious 1925 team which won eleven of 
its fourteen games. Both of the defeats this season were lost by a few points, 
Springfield College winning with a two point nargin and Conn. Aggie with a four 
point lead. Many of the best teams in New England fell before the Aggie power- 
ful offense among which are Brown, one of the three teams to defeat the 1925 
quintet. New Hamphire, Williams, Wesleyan, Middlebury, Vermont and Maine. 
The team averaged 27 points per game against 19 for its opponents or a grand 
total of 378 points. This is exceedingly good considering the opponents and the 
fact that six of the fourteen games were played within a period of two weeks. 

Unquestionably the greatest victories of the season were those scored over 
Williams, Wesleyan, and Middlebury. These three games were played within 
the short period of four days. In the Williams game the Aggie quintet played 
against great odds in that the game was played at Williamstown under a much 
stricter referee than usual and on a much smaller court. The Wesleyan game was 
an exhibition of speed and accurate shooting as far as the home team was con- 
cerned. A 12 to score was run up before Wesleyan came to and scored her first 
point. By the victory over Middlebury the quintet equalled the record of nine 
successive wins made by the Aggie All- Valley five in 1922. It was "Larry" 
Jones' one-handed shot in the last five seconds of play which broke the 14 to 14 
tie and won the game. 

The success of the team as a whole is attributed to the phenomenal team 
work of everyone who wore the Maroon and White and not on indicidual stars. 
The season opened with four veterans in the line-up, Captain Temple, Jones, Par- 
tenheimer, and Smiley. In the first few games the line-up was constantly being 
changed until "Ray" Grifiin was finally picked to take the place left vacant by 
Samuels, captain of the 1925 quintet. It is of interest to note that four of these 
five men won places or honorable mention on the 1925 All-New England quintet. 
Captain Temple, who was leading scorer throughout the season, was at his best 
in the closing game with Tufts. In this contest he showed a great exhibition of 
basketball in accounting for nineteen points, shooting seven out of eight fouls 
and six baskets from the floor. Smiley in spite of his handicap in height ex- 
cellently filled his position as guard because of his speed. Partenheimer by his 
accurate shooting and Jones with his ability to jump center both lived up to 
their last year's reputation. Grifiin filled to perfection the position of the missing 


link in the quintet because of his speed and shooting. Thomas who shifted with 
Griffin in practically every game will be one of the foundations for the 1927

ilusiical Clubs; 

'T^HIS year the Musical Clubs have certainlj^ experienced one of the most suc- 
-*- cessful seasons in recent years. With Roy Norcross, — who has now had two 
years of experience — leading the glee club, the club has exhibited a brand of music 
not heretofore thought obtainable. 

A material aid to the concerts was found in the person of "Dutch" Ansell, the 
"boy with the sputtery feet". As a trick step dancer, Ansell has given us a kind 
of dancing that is of the quality customarily found in professional circles only. 

The Orchestra this year has produced a really good quality of dance music 
and has certainly won popularity with its audiences through sheer merit. 

Of the club itself, little need be said. Every concert given has been success- 
ful. A comparatively small number of Freshmen were admitted to the club this 
year; however, what they lacked in quantity they certainly made up for in 
quality. With so few new men entering the club, and so large a number of seniors 
leaving, it will devolve upon the class of '29 to fill the depleted ranks. 

Once again the club has been favored with the coaching of Prof. Ivan T. 
Gorockhoff of Smith College. Prof. Gorockhoff is highly popular with the men. 
His energetic leading of the "Cossack Lament" is an incident to be remembered 
by the choristers.

Co eb mn Club, 1925=1926 

A MONG the newest of the organizations on the campus is the Co-ed Glee Club, 
■^ *- which has spent its time during the past year in gaining recognition. The 
Glee Club is the culmination of several years' attempts to establish such an 
organization among the Co-eds. For several years there has been a Music Club, 
and under its auspices the present glee club was formed. 

From the first, the club has been successful since they were fortunate enough 
to obtain the services of Mrs. Arthur B. Beaumont as coach. Mrs. Beaumont is 
indeed an accomplished directress and has moulded the club into excellent shape 
through her constant, diligent efforts. There has been an average attendance of 
twenty-four girls in each concert, with more freshmen represented than any other 

The first concert work was done on the program for High School Day together 
with the combined Musical Clubs. The work was evidently successful for the 
club was given academic recognition for 1925-6. The club also furnished enter- 
tainment at a conference of the Girls' Clubs of the district which was held on 
campus during spring term. In spite of its late start the Glee Club may be con- 
sidered successful. 

The Glee Club has been able to furnish a varied program for concerts during 
the present year. There has been a successful attempt to raise the standard of 
the music used by the Glee Club so the concerts represent a popular choice of 
songs which are not too commonly used. Variety has been given the program 
since "Kid" Cassidy and "Peg" Shea sing the songs for which they are famous 
and render their interpretation of the "Duncan Sisters". Janet Jones '29 adds to 
the program with her special dancing features. A soloist and several trios add to 
the variety of the concert. 

Ruth Davison, the manager and organizer, and Evelyn Davis, the leader, 
have carried on their work in an excellent manner.

TN spite of the scarcity of candidates the team has enjoyed one of the most 
-*- successful seasons in the history of debating in this college. 

The team began its season by a 2 to 1 victory over Maine. After Maine 
came Colby and again our team triumphed with a 3 to decision. It was after 
this Colby victory that the real contest of the year occurred, the debate with the 
team from Bates College. Two of the men on this team were members of the 
internationally-known team which, in 1925, crossed the water to meet the best 
teams of Oxford and Cambridge. Without a doubt the smoothness and ease of 
the experienced Bates men gave them the edge and a 3 to decision. 

It is unfortunate that debating is not given better support by the student 
body than it is at the present time. Debating contests are very poorly attended. 
This alone would be enough to discourage a good many college debating teams 
and result in the dropping of the activity. With the debating team which we 
have here it is difficult to really understand the apathy towards the forensic art. 

It is not fitting that this article should close without some reference to Pro- 
fessor Prince, the coach of the team. Of his time, experience, and kindly advice, 
he has given unstintingly. He has nursed the activity through its most adverse 
periods and has worked unceasingly to cultivate, in the men under his training, a 
spirit of keen analysis and quick, clear thinking that will be of inestimable aid 
to them in later life.

THE Roister Doisters enjoyed an unusually successful season during the past 
year. Aggie Revue was certainly a novelty, taking the form of a light musi- 
cal comedy, "Doris", both the plot and lyrics of which were composed by stu- 
dents; both seniors, incidentally. The number, "Doris" was a decided hit. 

The Commencement Show of June, 1925, was "Sidney," by Prof. Frank P. 
Rand of the faculty. The interpretation of Queen Elizabeth by Emil Corwin '25 
and the acting of Miss Margaret Shea, '26 were particularly good, altho the entire 
cast acquitted themselves in a truly professional manner. 

A new experiment, already tried in professional circles, is being attempted 
for Prom Show this year. "She Stoops to Conquer" will be presented in modern 
dress. Rehearsals are already under way and give promise of a successful pre- 
sentation of Goldsmith's classic in its modern attire. 

Increased interest is being manifested in the dramatic society this year if 
Prom show try outs are an indication. Much of the success of the past year has 
been due to the efficient coaching of Prof. Rand and the fine example of dramatic 
efforts set by President T. J. Grant '26 and the other members of the society. 

The Roister Doisters have witnessed several interesting performances of the 
Repertory Company in Northampton this year.

THE M.A.C. Christian Association was established in 1871 under the name of 
the Young Men's Christian Union. In 1914 it became affiliated with the 
National Y.M.C.A. The name was changed in 1922 to the M.A.C. Christian 
Association. It still operates in connection with the National Y.M.C.A. but 
has withdrawn its voting power in order that it might expand its purpose and 
reach more students on the campus. 

The officers of the association are elected each spring by the student body and 
serve for three terms. The object of the association is to promote the growth of 
the Christian spirit on the campus and thus help every student to come to know 
what it means to be a Christian and to live up to the full measure of that knowl- 
edge. The association is assisted by Mr. John B. Hanna, Interchurch Student 
Secretary, who serves as advisor. 

The first duty of the M.A.C.C.A. is to welcome the freshmen, to help them 
get settled and acquainted with college life. It is with this object in view that the 
"freshman handbook" is revised and published each year. A copy of this hand- 
book is presented to each new student, whether freshman, upper classman or grad- 
uate student. It serves to make the new man more at home and gives him those 
facts about the college which he will find useful and which every student should 
know. During the past year the editorial board was headed by Elmer E. Barber 
as Editor-in-Chief. He has now been succeeded by Earl F. Williams who is 
busily engaged in preparing the handbook for 1926-1927. 

In addition to the handbook the association endeavours to procure various 
well-known religious speakers. During the past year a number of persons have 
been heard under the auspices of the association. Rev. A. Ray Petty of New 
York City gave a talk on "Immigrants" in which he vividly described the living 
conditions of Italian immigrants in the New York slums. Dr. Henry H. Crane 
spoke on "The Paradox of Power". Other topics of religious and social interest 
have been discussed by autliorities in these fields.

npHE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, published weekly by the students, 
-*- is the official newspaper of M.A.C., although its views do not always repre- 
sent the beliefs of a majority of students. The members of the Collegian Editorial 
Board feel justified, however, in publishing articles which will arouse discussion 
among the students for the good which comes from a discussion of any debatable 
subject, as well as printing the more routine campus news. If you think the 
Collegian isn't appreciated, just try and secure a copy at any fraternity house on 
Wednesday afternoon. 

The Collegian has been established under its present name for about eleven 
years, but its history as a college newspaper covers a period of thirty-five years. 
The first Aggie newspaper was established in 1890 and was entitled "College Life", 
although it was not as humorous as its name might suggest. "College Life" 
appeared every two weeks, as did its successor, the "College Signal", which 
reorganized the original paper in the fall of 1901. The "College Signal" was 
published from that time until the fall of 1914 when the present weekly "Col- 
legian" came into being. 

For the first time in the annals of M.A.C., a Co-Ed has directed the publi- 
cation of the campus newspaper. Mary T. Boyd' 26 of Ortega, Florida, 
well known for her unique "Cider Press", has been Editor-in-Chief for the past 
two terms. She was elected to serve as a successor to Arthur V. Buckley'26 of 
Natick, who headed the board during the spring term of 1925, but who failed to 
return to college in September. She had previously held the position of 
Managing Editor for a term. To John F. Lambert'26 of Gleasondale goes all due 
credit for the artistic arrangement of the front page and the catchy headlines, 
for he has been the Managing Editor. Alvin G. Stevens'26 of Needham, the 
Business Manager, has supervised his department and has been responsible for 
the successful financial conduct of the paper. His first assistant has been Charles 
P. Reed'26 of West Bridgewater, who has had charge of advertising. 

The work of producing a creditable paper involves more detail than the 
average student appreciates. Although the printer reads all the proof under the 
present system, there remains a major portion of work for members of the board. 
First, the reporters must scout around and pick up stray bits of news; the editor- 
in-chief must compose his editorials; the cider-presser must grind his grist. All 
contributions must be typewritten before they are handed in to the managing 
editor at the weekly meetings on Monday night. He then proceeds to make 
corrections, to compound headlines, and to make a tentative "dummy" for the 
printer's guidance. In the meantime the business department has been busy 
scouring about for advertisers, and when the printed papers arrive on Wednesday 
afternoon, the same department must distribute them on the campus and send 
out large numbers through the mail. This work is not seasonal. It comes every 
week of the year, and it must all be done if the Collegian is to appear. 

The Massachusetts Collegian is under the supervision of the Academic 
Activities Board and receives general oversight by that body.

THE 1927 INDEX BOARD has attempted to present in this book something 
slightly different from the type of annual which the few preceding classes 
have compiled. We feel that too much information of a highly statistical nature 
has been given in too systematized a manner. While we have retained all the 
information which is necessary and appropriate for our yearbook, we have inter- 
spersed this information with articles of a literary nature, but which, in them- 
selves, are of real value and interest to the student body. Such articles are 
those on "The Stockbridge House", and "College Customs". 

Unusual co-operation has been shown in the work of the board this year. 
Odd though it may seem, we can honestly say that the task of publishing this 
book has been one which, although entailing a deal of hard work and a few "sleep- 
less nights" has certainly not been devoid of pleasure and interest. The enjoy- 
ment we have derived from working together has been great enough to warrant 
the dismissal of the routine phase of the work as negligible.

BETWEEN Wilder Hall and Clark Hall, half hidden by the elms, pines, and 
masses of grape vine, is a little old farmhouse known to Aggie graduates as 
"The Old Stockbridge House" because President Stockbridge lived there during 
his administration and kept his office in the small room over the woodshed. 

There are few people who appreciate what a gem this old house is, for in its 
present ramshackle condition it catches the eye of only those who are versed in 
the charm and beauty of the old New England homestead. The symmetry and 
simplicity of the lines of the house, the tiny window panes, and the sunken door- 
way, mark it as one of the old homes, which, like old people, should be cherished. 
In this Connecticut Valley, rich with the history of the early struggles of this 
country, such a home fills the imagination with pictures of staunch settlers living 
their rigorous life, of Indian wars and massacres, of hard winters taking their toll 
of life, and of all the odds which the first settlers fought with such courage 
that we are proud to call them our ancestors. 

The house is built in the old colonial manner with the first floor covering more 
area than the second so that the sloping walls brace the house. Like other old 
homes in this part of the country, its principle beams and window sills are hand 
hewn, what nails that are in the house are hand made and the latches and hinges 
are beautifully wrought. The hair-plaster and four foot paneling on the walls 
and the old corner-closets fill the heart of the antiquarian with delight. The 
ancient chimney, now removed, covered an area of 196 square feet and contained 
three fireplaces and a smoke-oven. On the inside of the windows are the old 
wooden shutters which could be closed to keep out molesters or Indians. The 
wells under the house gave clear cold spring water. On rainy days children in 
the house played hide-and-seek in the dark attic, which they invested with 
ghosts, and in the secret closet in the wall of the living room, near the chimney. 
It was large enough for a man to sit or lie in comfortably but there are no records 
of it ever being used seriou.sly as a hiding place. In the same wall were two 
secret drawers for the safe keeping of the family valuables. 

For forty years the house has been used as the home of college caretakers and 
now it is occupied by a workman. It is no credit to the state that she is letting 
such a heritage fall to ruin for lack of proper care and appreciation. There seems 
to be a "need of being versed in country things." 


Social Hife at M^ ^. C. 

OOCIAL LIFE AT M. A. C. is of an exceptionally high order. Excellent facili- 
^^ ties for dances are found in practically all fraternity houses and the Memo- 
rial Building, of course, is certainly ideal for social affairs. 

The Junior class has been very successful in its social activities. Soph- 
Senior Hop of June, 1925, was very well attended. Music was furnished by the 
famous Morey Pearl Brunswick Recording artists and the Harrisonia Manor 
broadcasting team from Nashua, N. H. 

Prom in April, 1926, was also well attended. The 1927 Prom committee 
made a radical departure from custom in doing away with the usual drab cabaret 
and changing Prom dance from Thursday to Friday night of Prom season. 
Worthy Hills Orchestra of Hartford furnished the music. 

The Delta Phi Gamma Prom, the first this sorority has attempted, came in 
J'ebruary. Starting with a formal dance at the Memorial Building Friday night, 
a successful tea dance was held at the Amherst Women's Club, Saturday after- 
noon, a sleigh ride to Hadley came Sunday night and Monday night the girls 
were entertained by their men at a dancing party at the Sig Ep house. 

Informal dances, conducted by a student committee, are held two or three 
times each term and Friday night dances are given frequently.

0nt Character? 

^TyTE had quite a time this year trying to get our class characters definitely 
^ ' straightened out, but after numerous voteoffs, etc., we eventually selected 
the fortunate, or unfortunate, people. 

Our most popular junior is none other than long, lean, Ernest G. McVey, and 
he certainly deserves it. Whether rapidly (that's the wrong word!) making 
change in the bowling-alley, or stopping rapid grass-cutters on the diamond, 
Mac never loses his temper. His support in class activities has been remarkable. 
And we might here mention that Mac was also voted the class Cigarette Fiend. 
The speed with which he consumes the filthy weed is marvellous! 

And our soldier! Raphael A. Biron, of Amesbury, or "Tick" if you don't 
recognize this name. "Tick" caught Captain Brady's eye during the automatic 
rifle dissembling orgy our sophomore year and since then "It's been easy" as 
"Tick" puts it. 

Ella M. Buckler of Pittsfield is our Most Popular Co-Ed. We all know Ella's 
genial disposition and her sincerity. Our class secretary par excellence certainly 
deserved her honors. 

And speaking of honors, maybe our Class Actor, Neil C. Robinson isn't 
entitled to his share! The star of several Aggie Revues and Prom Shows, this 
scion of Booth and Irving is "much at home" on the boards. And "Robby" is an 
athlete of no mean stamp, incidentally, which is a convenient way of bringing up 
the name of our class Athlete, Joe Hilyard of Beverly. 

"Joe" is captain of the 1926 football team. Isn't that enough? No! He 
isn't the class dancer, but "Eddie" Connell, our Class Dancer says that he'd 
swap his patent leathers any day for Joe's "M". "Eddie" has danced his way 
through several Hops and Proms and also edited this year book to many a mel- 
ancholy tune in the stilly night when our Class Fusser, "Vic" Verity was out 
calling the silvery moon and fleeting cloudlets to witness his heart-rending 
proposals to some fair one. 

Our Class Wit (or half-wit as he himself puts it) is "Spike" Malley of Water- 
town, the home of arsenals and Malleys. He is the originator of "work out" 
"green paper", etc., some of our favorite junior terms. And Spike maintains 
that if he'd got started sooner he would have easily copped the forensic and 
scholastic laurels which rest lightly (?) on the head of Herman E. Pickens of 
Stoneham, but even "Spike" in his serious moods admits that "Hermie" deserves 
them. He also maintains that the title of "Class Rustic" conferred by the class 
upon Roger M. Cobb of Wrentham is the one most to be desired, since this is an 
agricultural college. However, well, we won't say it — let us on, as far as we are 
able and then stand in the dust left by the rapidly vanishing form of our junior 
"most likely to succeed" on his way to the pinnacles, George F. Hatch, Jr., of 
West Roxbury. 


However, we won't stand still long for faintly in the distance we hear the 
trilling of ivories. It is our Class Musician, Francis R. Mullen, of Becket, tick- 
ling the keys, which he can without a doubt, witness: the redoubtable "Moon 
Mullen's Melodious Music Makers". 

And last but not least, our most popular Professor, Ray E. Torrey, of Am- 
herst. We all, no doubt, remember with a great deal of pleasure, our experiences 
with this most sincere and gifted of scientists. We are of the opinion that time 
alone will show his inestimable worth and feel that we, as a class, have certainly 
made no mistake in selecting him as our popular professor — he, if anybody, 
deserves the title!
