19 THE INDEX 13 


HEN the drifting mists of time have 
enveloped our college years; when 
the exploits and experiences of the 
present have become but fading 
memories; when we sit before the 
glowing embers, watching the lazily 
curling smoke circle upward, dreaming alone in the 
twilight; — then may we find in this Index those things 
for which it was written: — companionship in solitude, 
consolation in disillusionment, and "Just a Memory."

ALEXANDER ANDERSON MACKIMMIE was born in Nova Scotia, of 
Scotch parents, and studied in the public schools of Nova Scotia, until he 
was sixteen. At this early age he began to teach school, inspired perhaps by the 
same urge for the dissemination of learning which prompted Duncan Ross, his 
grandfather, to found the first school in Durham, and which impelled James Ross, 
a kinsman and the first president of Dalhousie College to strive so hard for the 
kindling of the fire of knowledge. For six years did Professor Mackimmie teach 
school, laboring over his books in the same persistent way which has characterized 
him all his life, — and then an opportunity for foreign travel presented itself to him. 
The next three years were spent in the South of Europe and so precise was the 
observation of the student-traveller that European History loses its drabness and 
takes on a new fulgency when Professor Mackimmie makes the subject live and 
breath, by his tales of his travels in Northern Africa, or Italy, or Spain. 

But at the end of three years he returned to the New World, and the fall of 
1903 found him at Princeton, and a member of the Sophomore class. Three 
years later he graduated from Princeton with the degree of Bachelor of Arts, 
magna cum laude and the reward of the Boudinot fellowship in modern languages 
for 1907. 

For the next two years Professor Mackimmie taught at Truro Academy, but 
in 1908 he came back to the state and town where he was to make his home for 
many years and began to teach at M. A. C. as instructor in French. In 1909-10 
he served as assistant to the Acting Dean and in 1911 he received his appointment 
as assistant professor of French. 

Professor Mackimmie, the student, was as yet unsatisfied and in 1914 he 
received his degree of Master of Arts from Columbia University. A year later he 
was made associate professor of French, a position which he held until 1919 when 
he was appointed Professor of French. Even then, however, the quest for learn- 
ing proved dominant, and in 1922 he studied in Spain. As a result of his labors 
he received the Diploma de Competencia, Centro de Estudis Historicos, Madrid. 
It is a most unusual and difficult task for a man who has taught for many years 
to begin to teach an entirely new subject, and yet Mackimmie showed again his 
tremendous versatality when, in 1924 he was appointed Professor of Economics, 
and thus forsook his languages for laws of living. Two years later he was made 
head of the Division of Humanities here at the Massachusetts Agricultural Col- 

This then is the abbreviated history of one of the most popular professors on 
our campus. A sketchy biography such as this is wholly incompetent and useless, 
for nothing of the personality of the man is in evidence. One cannot say in a 
few words that, which would of necessity take pages, if it were to be said well. 



19 INDEX29 

Twelve years ago another Index was dedicated to Professor Mackimmie, 
and in that Index, Professor Hasbrouek, perhaps the most revered professor that 
our campus has ever seen, wrote of him, 

"to him all men are brothers, and his sympathy extends from the student 

who needs his help to the Italian laborer who has learned to watch for the 

Professor and to expect his 'buon giorno," a welcome echo from the home 


"Alike, all who know Professor Mackimmie honor him as the scholar 

par excellence, as the friend tried and proven." 

In the twelve years which have elapsed since this tribute was paid to Professor 
Mackimmie many things have happened which have firmly implanted his name 
in the annals of pleasant memories for "Aggie" undergraduates. His classes are 
not hours of boredom, or dragging irritating lectures. When he takes charge of a 
class he seems to have the power of interesting the most indolent in the very stuffi- 
est of rooms. His courses are not courses in Economics but rather, are summaries 
of the experience of life. One who studies under Professor Mackimmie learns, 
not merely the subject being taught, but also an appreciation of the great in art 
and literature and life. As one student said, "If you want to go to Europe and 
are broke and will be for the rest of your life, take a course in history with Mackim- 
mie. You'll know more about Europe at the end of the course than if you want 
yourself." And this is representative of student opinion on the entire campus. 

We have dedicated this Index to Professor Mackimmie because we realize 
his breadth of outlook; his scholarly attainments; his fascinating personality 
his knowledge of the unusual; his marvelous memory; his depth of character; 
his optimistic philosophy; but most of all because he is not only a learned scholar; 
but also an ideal humanitarian and a student of life.

AT the close of the last college year, it was announced by the Board of Trustees 
that Roscoe Wilfred Thatcher had been appointed President of the College. 
We were told that our beloved "Prexy" Lewis was going to the University of New 
Hampshire. Who, we asked, is this man to whom our glorious standard has been 
intrusted? And well we might ask, for great, indeed, must be the man who was 
to measure up to our fine heritage. 

The curious soon learned about President Thatcher's lineage and earlier 
career. He was born and bred of sturdy pioneer stock. His grandfather went 
from Lynn, shortly after the Civil War, to join in the great sweep of emigration 
westward. While journeying to the land of promise, he unexpectedly met death, 
so leaving to a young boy, President Thatcher's father, the whole responsibility 
of carrying on in this unknown land. By dint of constant struggle and toil, a 
farm was built up in Ohio, and on this farm in 1872 President Thatcher was born. 
His boyhood there was filled with continuous hard work and trial. After a rather 
pieced together elementary education, he, by means of ambition and sheer will 
to win, managed to procure enough high school training in Nebraska, to which 
his family had moved, to enable him to matriculate in the University of Nebraska. 
He was graduated from there in 1898. At once he embarked upon the course 
which, after thirty-five years of experience as a student, a faculty member, and 
administrator, was to lead to the presidency of M. A. C. His actual practical 
experience coupled with his control in executive positions has peculiarly fitted 
President Thatcher to understand and help solve the great problems in the sphere 
of both agriculture and education. He rose steadily from one position to another, 
finally serving as Dean of the Department of Agriculture of the University of 
Minnesota and later as Director of the two Agricultural Experiment Stations of 
New Y„ork. From the splendid work that he was doing in New York, M. A. C. 
called him to her campus. 

Then gradually, we learned first-hand about the personality and characteris- 
tics of our new "Prexy." We made his acquaintance in assemblies, in chapels, 
at social gatherings, and then best of all on October 28, 1927, inauguration day. 
We have learned to rejoice in his strength as a leader, his scholarly attainments, his 
poise, his facility of expression through which he imparts his ideas clearly and 
forcefully. His convincing sincerity, hismoralcourage.andeducationalvisionstand 
out as the three brilliant lights by which we are to be guided. A man who prefers 
to "meet issues squarely," "to state unequivocally" his position or convictions, 
who has the highest ideals of education both as "liberal and practical," and who 
radiates an atmosphere of sympathetic understanding and genial good comrade- 
ship, is the man who now heads our institution. We feel that as long as men of 
his calibre are chosen to fill our positions of authority, ever will our standard fly 
proudly in the sky.

FAR. CHARLES EDWARD MARSHALL was born on a farm near Port 
■*— ' Clinton, Ottawa County, Ohio, on October 6th, 1866. With this beginning 
and with a sturdy line of ancestors back of him one might have predicted from the 
start that strong, reliable, forceful character which he developed. Here he grew 
to young manhood, working on the farm and attending the local schools until he 
was about eighteen years of age when he entered the State Normal School at 
Fredonia, New York, where he graduated in 1889. Following this he was principal 
of the Academy at Ellicottsville, New York, for two years and then entered the 
University of Michigan intending to study medicine, but after two years he be- 
came so much interested in bacteriology that he changed his major to that science. 
He graduated with the class of 189.5 with the degree of Ph.B. and received his 
Doctor's degree from that University in 1902. 

It is interesting but not surprising to note Dr. Marshall's steady professional 
advancement from one position to another. He was appointed Assistant in 
Bacteriology at the University of Michigan in 1893 and in 1899 went to the Michi- 
gan Experiment Station at East Lansing as Bacteriologist. In 1902 he became 
Professor of Bacteriology and Hygiene in the Michigan Agricultural College which 
position he held for ten years when he came to the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College as Professor of Bacteriology and Director of the Graduate School. 

Three times Dr. Marshall visited Europe for graduate work. In 1898 he 
studied at Jorgensen's Laboratory in Copenhagen; in 1903 at Pasteur Institute, 
Paris and at Ostertag's Laboratory, Berlin; and in 1913 at Koch Laboratory 

He was among those able lieutenants whom President Kenyon L. Butterfield 
called to assist him in the work of developing the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College during the greatest period of growth which this College has ever seen, and 
as Director of the Graduate School he did a splendid piece of work in organizing, 
expanding and systematizing that part of the activities of this college. 

Dr. Marshall was the author of a notable text book in his special field entitled 
"Outlines of Bacteriology" and wrote many bulletins and scientific papers. He 
was also president of the Society of American Bacteriologists in 1914 and a mem- 
ber of many other scientific organizations. 

Dr. Marshall's friendly interest in all those with whom he came in contact, 
his high ideals, devotion to duty, and solicitude for everything which concerned 
the welfare of the community in which he lived endeared him to all. But to fully 
appreciate his character one must have tramped with him over the hills of New 
England, or rowed with him on Lake Sunapee, one must have played golf with 
him or fished with him or have sat with him of an evening in front of an open fire! 
It was under such circumstances as these that one learned to know a side of his 
character which comparatively few saw, but which all those who were privileged 
to see will hold in their memories as one of the choice things of this life.

THE aim of the Division of the Humanities at the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College is to maintain its heritage from the past and to advance in usefulness 
to the student as the college itself advances, and within the bounds determined 
by the Trustees. It is not unmindful of the fact that this college has never suc- 
cumbed to vocational demands to the exclusion of humanistic culture. The 
fine old word "Humanities," so little used in American colleges and so long used 
in this one, reveals the quality of the college interest in culture. 

The Division does not forget that Latin was a part of the curriculum at this 
college, up almost to Dean Lewis's day. It remembers with pride the many 
graduates who have gone from this college to teach languages, literatures, and 
social relations in high schools and private schools, or the number of its graduates 
who have pursued graduate study at Harvard and other LTniversities, or the gradu- 
ates who are now instructors or fellows in these subjects in other colleges. 

The Department of Languages and Literatures in this Division appreciates 
the fact that President Goodell, President Lewis, and Dean Mills were heads of 
the Department and conferred not merely recognition on the Division but en- 
during honor. This official recognition reveals also that the Division has not 
gone beyond its proper scope within the aim of the college. Thus the heritage 
of the past is precious to the Division. 

Never has the Division been unaware that this college occupies a peculiar 
place in the educational system of Massachusetts. By its charter bound to give 
a "liberal and practical education," this college finds its unique field in instruction 
for pursuits related to Agriculture, but has thruout its history developed to the 
highest efficiency in that field without at any time omitting the liberal subjects 
taught in other colleges. And not only this Division but other divisions have 
assisted the cultural aim of the college. This Division remembers the inspiring 
humanistic teaching of men like Clarke, Goessman, Wellington, Hasbrouck, and 

The Division aims to reveal the changing ideals that dominated different 
periods and sent peoples and their literatures to grandeur or decay. It would 
bring students into companionship with the great spirits of the past who have 
done the great deeds and sung the great songs and uttered the inspiring words, 
by which men and women shape their lives. It would reveal such a knowledge 
of the past as would enable us "to form just calculations with respect to the fu- 
ture." It seeks to enable men and women to express themselves in speech effec- 
tively and it may even now and then free imprisoned talent! 

In history and social studies, in languages, literature and music it seeks to 
respond to the needs of those who are to earn a living but also to live. The large 
number of students interested in both the services rendered in the Division seems 
to show that it meets the same demand that exists in other colleges.

' I A have conferred degrees upon 2,163 men and women and to have admitted 
■*• some 5,000 students in all to its portals of learning during the past sixty years, 
and yet, not to have produced at M. A. C. a graduate who has been an outstand- 
ing national figure in humanities, may indeed seem strange to some. 

There have been no great historians, no noted novelists, playwrights, or poets, 
who may claim M. A. C. their Alma Mater. And why? Simply because Aggie 
has devoted her time and energies in strict accordance with the provisions of her 
charter. She has been busily engaged in producing leaders in agriculture, scien- 
tific research, business, and education. Many significant achievements and im- 
portant movements in these fields are attributable to the endeavors of M. A. C. 
graduates. Those who have followed the first three fields are not interested pri- 
marily in the humanities. The field of research unquestionably belongs to the 
scientist, in which M. A. C. alumni are numerous. 

Education, on the other hand, is in the field of humanities. It is a popular 
vocation among the graduates of other colleges and universities, and the alumni 
of M. A. C. are no exception to the rule. This fact is shown in a recent survey 
relating to the occupation of M. A. C. alumni in which that of a teacher rates as 
second, being headed only by farmers. This survey included only M. A. C. 
graduates of known occupation, of which there were 1,624. A summary of the 
five leading occupations of alumni as shown by the survey shows their relative 

Farmers 351 

Teachers 310 

Industrial workers 307 

Scientists 189 

Agricultural engineers 99 

In addition to the above, one must class with the alumni in humanities those 
29 who are authors, artists and journalists, and 15 who are engaged in teaching 
English in colleges and secondary schools. Aggie numbers among her more 
noted alumni the following who are or have been leaders in the educational and 
literary fields: 

Charles S. Howe '78, college president 

Joseph L. Hills '81, college dean 

Herbert Myrick '82, publisher and editor (deceased)

/ I ^HE year of 1928 marks the final lap of our four years journey in this, our 
■*■ "Pilgrim's Progress." What a wonderful experience it has been for us, too! 
What narrow escapes some of us have had in our travels avoiding the dangers 
lurking in the Valley of Low Marks, the threats of the Chemistry Goblins, the 
Zoology Sharks, and whatever other weird shapes have ever haunted our journey. 
Others of our number have tracked these creatures to their very lairs, coming out 
victorious conquerors, thus distinguishing themselves in the Field of Scholarship. 
Still others have made their fame in the Realm of Athletics. With our combined 
forces, we have staged victorious combats with opposing bands, such as the 
Strugglers of '29. In short, we feel that the time spent in these past four years 
has been filled with worthy pursuits and has given us strength and courage with 
which to continue on our way. 

And yet, it is a queer feeling which each one of us experiences now as we try 
to realize that for the future, it will lie in the power of each one of us to prove the 
strength which we have gained, and to so forge ahead by ourselves. 

Thus we look to the future with feelings of regret mingled with anticipation, 
feelings of reluctance, yet a hope that we may show ourselves worthy of our 
Alma Mater.

Another Class has come and gone, 
Another game is played and won; 
The future's colored rose and gold, 
The past is splendid to behold; 
Success achieved at Aggie here, 
Will surely grow from year to year. 

Flushed by their conquest, another class is about to sally from our portals. 
The portcullis of professorial surveillance will drop behind them — they shall canter 
across the Stygian moat of ignorance — out into the world. And we regret to see 
you go. Enemies you were once, — friends you are now; conquerors, when we 
were Frosh; companions when we are Juniors. Though you leave our college 
and ourselves, — to face the struggle of life with the same indominatable determi- 
nation with which you came to Aggie four short years ago, — yet bide with us 
awhile — at least in memory. And when the time shall come that you will scan 
reminiscently our year book, think of us, — your friends and may there be com- 
panionship in that memory. 

TO YOU '28 — May success attend you, good fortune guard you and the gods 
of Chance be your footmen. Some day we will meet in common — '28 and '29 in 
the distant future just for "Auld Lang Syne." We'll say farewell and wish you 
luck in just the way you want us to. 



GTJje Puilber 

Like a cathedral. 
Seeking the sky, 
Would that my life 
Might tower on high. 

But ere I begin 

To build the spire. 

I must dig deep, 

In the mud and the mire. 

I must delve away 
Till I strike bed-rock; 
There lay a foundation 
No tremor can shock. 

Stone after stone, 
Firm and secure, 
Beauty unfolds, — 
Lofty, and pure. 

Past the rose w-indow, 
No blemish to mar. 
At last, on the top 
A cross, — and a star.

Joyfully eager to Aggie we came, 
Uniting together to bring our class fame. 
Nobly we pulled o'er the pond on the rope. 
Invading the Soph's haughty precincts of hope. 
Overcame them in football, in ring and on mat, 
Rejoicing so much we were mostly high-hat. 

Changing old Fate in the night played us dirt — 

Leading the Sophs in the march of the shirt 

Anon though, we scrapped and we suffered and swore, 

Showing our manhood in banquet scrap war. 

Soon found we out we were Freshmen no more. 

Highly elated outspread we our wings, 
Insisting that '30 should know we were kings. 
Swiftly in football and drill hall they found 
That we with the victory always were crowned. 
Or being defeated, we hope we did right — 
Regarding not glory, but joy in the fight. 
Years yet to be, w r e await you with light!

There are some folks we meet, as we travel along 

Whom we think of at once as our friends 

But we soon find their friendship is weak, and not strong 

We give these friends up in the end. 

There are others we meet as we wander thru life 

Like "Robby" much harder to know 

But it's friends just like him who will weather the strife 

And be constant wherever we go.

And in all things reveals 

A spirit we highly commend.

He plays a conspicuous role 

In M. A. C. life on the whole, 

In class, it's his voice, 

At dances, "his choice," 

In football, 'tis sometimes the goal.

You cannot say quite, 

That he's nothing but "Red" barbarism.

"Dick" Adams will be great. 

The rest of us will use our gall, 

And try and crash the gate, 

While he parades around next fall 

As if he had a date. 


Northampton, Mass. Smith Agricultural School 

1906; Dairying; Kappa Gamma Phi.

In his studies, and someday he surely will be 
A wrestling farmer, as we all can see.

With ladies whose shapes are a scream.

In the least thing she'll do, 

And she'll finish, or else will not start.

1906; Entomology; Glee Club Orchestra (2): Alpha Gamma

Carl Bergan can travel quite fast — then some more.

An Aggie Beau Brummel — a Phoebus forsooth. 

Fall River, Mass. B. M. C. Durfee High School

chestra (2, 3); Phi Sigma Kappa. 

The Glee Club can surely boast loudly of "Itchy"

But baseball, next springtime, will make him detested 
Among all the freshmen whose peace he's molested.

When you're lacking in vim and you need the punch 

Of an understanding smile; 

When you're down and out and you've got a hunch 

That nothing in life's worth while; 

Just go to a man who is really a man, 

An athlete, a wit and a "Pal", 

And "Denny" will offer the best that he can — 

Then you won't mind your worries at all.

In that way he's different from both you and I.

Braintree, Mass. Weymouth High School

At winning loves he's clever and he's bold.

A girl more practical than Ruth 

Cannot be found among our youth;

For those who see things as they are 

Are born beneath a lucky star. 

Her friends, — she treats them all the same 

And asks for neither praise nor blame.

If I were a poet, —

Not effervescent, never morose, 

He's too sincere to adopt any pose. 


Onset, Mass. Natick High School

Though books for "Marg" hold small delight, 
The Ent. Lab claims her day and night;

'Tis said that things in parcels small

Now Guila is quite "La petite,"

We like to see her "Bob" about

Her we'd be lost; her business eye, 
Has seen good things for Delta Phi.

In the realm of athletics John Kay has his place

Why! he's a Paladin.

Whatever pathway she may choose to tread.

A tired world with winsome smiles 

As backstop he's precise.

Listen my children and you shall hear 

Of the midnight ride of a horse that's dear, 

Brought from her stable and out of the gate, 

Prudence was stolen one night rather late. 

Her captors then put her on top of a cart 

And soon after that the procession did start. 

Out of the campus and down Pleasant Street, 

Challenging loudly whom e'er they did meet, 

This wild gang of hoodlums went rambling along 

Disturbing the night with their laughter and song. 

And ever anon Prudence's rider did cry, 

"The British are coming, to arms, farmers, fly." 

The cart rumbled onward with Prudence atop, 

And finally down by the Town Hall did stop. 

Then Amherst's police force advanced to the fray, 

And bravely across the broad street made his way. 

"What Ho! you brave Agates, What beast have you there? 

How dare you disturb my sweet dreams by your blare? 

Go back to your campus. Bring back that fierce beast. 

I'll pinch this whole gang from the first to the least." 

Our captain, disdaining this post of the law 

Did sign to the rest with a cold, grimy paw. 

They then started back toward the campus that night 

To see Prudence carried was surely a sight. 

The Fire Station was then the next parking place, 

And speeches and singing indulged in apace. 

Then backward sweet Prudence was brought in her ride 

With many a bold Aggie man at her side. 

They took her and dumped her right off her sedan 

And sweated and heaved to the very least man. 

They carried her down to the old Aggie pond 

And handled her carefully as if they were fond 

Of their old wooden burden. At last by the shore 

They stood her upright. Quoth they "Nevermore." 

Two brave men did boldly take off their new pants 

And quickly put Prudence where she had a chance 

To wash off her ankles without even bending 

While winds up her spine, cold shivers were sending. 

And here she remained till she one day was stolen 

And 'tis said that her most shapely ankles were swollen. 

Where is she now? Well, we'd sure like to know 

For that is a place where we surely would go. 

So here's to old Prudence. Long may she reign 

As the queen of good fellows, of dullards the bane.

/^\N September 13, 1926, a fresh shipment of 185 would-be-college seedlings 
^-' were sent to to be transplanted on the M. A. C. campus. To produce the 
most luxuriant growth for the development of Aggie men, they were advised to be 
guided by these commandments: 


1. Bathe thy superiors. 

2. Pull their fighting six across the line. 

3. Let the opponents be conquerors in the rough arts of "razoo." 

4. Leave few whole nightshirts on the "sophas moras." 

5. Defy thy rivals, burn thy caps, and refresh thyselves in Aggie's noble 

6. Do thy level best, but break not the recent precedent in the big rushes. 

7. Remember — "Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny." 

8. Be thou the last yearlings to lay aside the old "prexy." 


1. Be ye the first Sophs by whom the new head is tried. 

2. Continue thy way as thou didst as seedlings in the first three acts of 
college custom. 

3. Bow to thy inferiors and be bereft of thy shirts by defeat. 

4. Stoop again and give laurels to thy supplanted ones in the sports of the 
field but not on the floor. 

5. Take into hand thy charges and inflict due penalty for their disobedience 
of the regulations set by our worthy Senate.

A LARGE army of neophytes arrived on this fair campus early last September. 
No band was there to meet it nor was it given any real notice at the time. 
To the college, this group was not unlike any other first-year class. 

The college body, however, soon became aware of the presence of the new- 
comers. In an amazingly brief time, the sophomores recognized us, and it was 
just a matter of a few days before we became the lowest of the low and the meek- 
est of the meek. But this situation could not exist, for, presently the student 
body began to refer to us not as "a class of freshmen" but as "the freshman class". 

Meekness and submission were gradually thrust aside. Revenge began to 
have a place in our lowly lives. And how sweet it was! The sophomore class 
will long remember Razoo night, and the freshmen will gleefully reminisce how 
they enjoyed piling up the Class of '30 in their enclosure. 

Football proved to be the big triumph of the year; the sophomore football 
team was beaten by a score of 7 to as a matter of course. Somehow the Rope 
Pull managed to slip through our hands, but we were very considerate and did not 
wish to see the sophomore class go barren of honors. The hockey team beat 
their superiors in a close game 3 to 2. We now look forward with pleasure to the 
remaining term in which we hope for additional successes.

people Malktns 1®p 

I can see them in my dreams, 

People walking by, 

Up and down the long dull streets. 

Paved with destiny; 

Whence so many? For what end? 

Vain to wonder why; 

People walking up the streets, 

People walking by. 

I can see them in my dreams 

People walking by, 

A sad face here, a bright face there. 

Laughter and a sigh; 

I look at them, they look at me, 

Still there's no reply; 

People walking down the streets, 

People walking by.

' I A HE honorary scholastic society of our college is Phi Kappa Phi. An honor, 

■*■ indeed, as well as a scholarly triumph, to be elected to this select group. 
Twice a year, members from the senior class are elected to Phi Kappa Phi. 
The principal election is in the fall, and a supplementary one, in the spring, to pro- 
vide for additional senior students who may have qualified for election during the 
fall and winter terms of their senior year. Those members of the senior class 
whose scholarship average has been eighty-five or above, are eligible for election 
to the Honorary Scholarship Society of Phi Kappa Phi. Not more than fifteen 
percent of the class can be elected, however. 

We are becoming accustomed to seeing, twice a year, the initiation of the 
new members into Phi Kappa Phi. It is a very solmen occasion. The faculty 
members of the society, numbering some fifty grave looking personages in cap 
and gown, sit upon the rostrum of Bowker Auditorium. The inititates are given 
their keys of membership with fitting ceremony. Do we appreciate the honor 
that is being conferred upon a few of our fellow students? They are to be con- 
gratulated that they have used their time and talents to such good advantage; 
that they have reached the goal which lured them on, over the paths of earnest 
endeavor; that finally they have been honored as was their due. Incidentally, 
we may be proud that it has been our experience here at M. A. C, that the students 
who are elected to Phi Kappa Phi, are also representatives of practically every 
organization and activity on our campus. We may be glad that we have a double 
standard of excellence walking as one. 

This year a new feature has been added to Phi Kappa Phi regime. The 
Massachusetts Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi has decided to offer annually an award 
for outstanding work in scholarship. The Phi Kappa Phi scholarship, which 
carries a remuneration of $250, was awarded this fall to Harold E. Clark of Mon- 
tague. It is to be given each year to one of the three ranking seniors, and is to 
take into consideration both scholarship and character. The award is to be based 
on the record made during the first three years, and is to be used for the further- 
ance of educational studies. 

Attention! We are being doubly tempted to attain scholarship and nobility 
of character. Certainly we all will strive. And may the best win! 



I would idle as the river 
As it flows across the land; 
And move the tall swamp grasses; 
And roll the bits of sand; 
And whirl in rock paved eddies; 
And rush with lightning speed 
The length of rocky caverns 
And then into the mead, 
To tumble colored ducklings 
And drift them at their play, 
To show them dainty morsel 
Then snatch it quick away; 
And be a bath for birdlings; 
And a fountain clear and cool. 
Oh! I'd idle as the river 
And rest in every pool. 



iiiimimmiiiTTTnTnnnii ri 



The sky above is deepest azure blue; 

The sun's gold warmth is pulsing earth with life; 

The fragrant air with melody is rife; 

The bobolink's mad glee, the dove's low coo; 

The warbler's trill, the lark's repeated notes; 

The zephyrs softly whispering in the trees; 

The brook that murmurs secrets to the breeze; 

While meadow flowerettes dance like sunlit motes. 

I kneel beside your grassy resting place, 

And warm fingers trace upon cold stone 

Your name. I pull a weed. Then fill, with one 

Great purple lilac tear, your tall glass vase. 

I think I feel your kindly presence near, 

And wonder if you know that I am here.

having injured his knee the week previous, and lost to Bates. 

The Worcester Tech meet came on February 22nd. Rivalry was at blood 
heat as the lead shifted from one team to the other with each event until W. P. I. 
won the relay, last event of the meet, thereby gaining enough points to nose into 
a victory, 39-38. 

The team closed its season in March with the Springfield Armory Meet. On 
the cancellation of the relay with Springfield, several of the team entered the open 
events and brought back medals for places. Henneberry, '27, brought home the 
Rolls Royce Cup, prize of the evening, by winning the special Rolls Royce Mile. 
His time for the race was 4 :50, and so was entitled to put his name to a new indoor 
mile record for the college.

1927 Spring Crack ^>easion 

' I ^HE "Agate" track season opened inauspiciously with a defeat by Wesleyan. 
■*■ A period of rain followed by a cold snap immediately preceded the meet, 
resulting in the track lacking condition, a state which was clearly reflected in the 
men's form. In spite of the bad start the team recovered and hung up an 
enviable record, lacking perhaps in victories, but not in times. 

Wesleyan brought up an unexpectedly strong team for the opening meet, 
April 23rd, and overwhelmed the home team, 112-23. Some of the veteran men 
came through in their events, but many of the men had not yet become used to the 
cinder track which was still a bit soggy and wet, so that Wesleyan swept a majority 
of the events. 

A dual meet with Trinity followed. The team staged a comeback winning 
the meet, 96-30. The team showed good form with Hall high scorer with 16 
points in the field events. Schappelle broke the first record of the season, lowering 
his own half-mile record to 2:03. 

The Worcester Tech Meet the following Saturday was nip and tuck, Wor- 
cester finally winning, 64 2 3 — 61 1/3. Milde and French of Worcester hung up 
new W. P. I. records in their events, the 220-dash and the 220-hurdles. Schap- 
pelle broke our second record by winning the mile in 4:34 2/5. Then surprised 
the crowd a few minutes later by winning the half-mile in 2:02, bettering his own 
record by a second. 

The E. I. C. A. A. Meet took place the next week, and Aggie scored seven 
points with a second place in the half-mile and two thirds in the mile and the broad 

At the New England Association Meet the week afterwards, Captain Swan 
and several men competed, Hall making a point for Aggie with a fourth place in 
the broad jump. 

The Tufts Meet on May 28th came as a climax to the season. After a long 
struggle for a majority of the points, Tufts finally secured the winning points on a 
long javelin throw by Soule. Each event was hotly contested. Schappelle and 
Lester of Tufts fought through a two-man race in the two-mile with "Schap" 
winning, and hanging up a new two-mile record of 10:10 1/5. He was the out- 
standing runner of the meet, tying Henneberry in the mile, making a new record 
in the two-mile, and easily winning the half-mile. Coukos broke our fourth record 
shortly afterwards heaving the shot 36 feet 5 1/2 inches.

r I S HE cross country season for 1927 started off with rather poor prospects, as 
-*■ Captain Charles Preston was the only veteran left to the team. However, 
after several weeks of practice the team journeyed to Middletown, Conn, to com- 
pete against the Wesleyan Harriers. In this meet Preston led his team of untried 
runners across the tape closely followed by "Dutch" Schappelle; the team won 
by a score of 22 to 34. 

In the next meet with Worcester Tech the race was over a much more difficult 
course and the Aggies barely managed to come out with a winning score of 26 to 29. 

The following week-end saw the team at Harvard College. Here the team 
suffered a severe beating by a stronger and more experienced team of runners. 
"Charlie" Preston made his best showing of the season in this race, even though 
led by nine Crimson Harriers, as the course was of an entirely different nature 
from what the team was used to. 

The next race was held on our own course against Boston University. This 
run was interesting because of the close fights at the finish. "Dutch" Schappelle 
led the pack over the entire course but was finally beaten out of his victory by 
Lockhart of B. U. "Charlie" Preston followed Broad of B. U. around the route, 
but managed to sprint at the finish to win out for third place. Three other Aggie 
men then finished in order and clinched the meet by the score of 26 to 30. 

At the New England Intercollegiates in Franklin Park the following week-end 
the team showed up rather poorly due to adverse conditions and finished in 
eleventh place. The season as a whole, although not as eventful as of past years, 
was very good considering the lack of experienced runners.

T) ASEBALL has always held an important place in Aggie campus life, and last 
-'-' season was no exception as is evidenced by the large squad which reported 
for practice and the group of students that followed the team to nearby encounters. 

Baseball opened during the middle of the spring vacation with morning, after- 
noon, and nightly practices at the Amherst College baseball cage. Owing to an 
early spring, the Aggie team was able to get out on the diamond early. Among 
the squad there were six letter men, and consequently high hopes were held. 
Taking it as a whole, the season was not exactly successful, yet one cannot stamp 
the record as poor. Out of the sixteen game schedule, seven were victories and 
one was called off because of rain. A notable victory was the Commencement 
game with Amherst, when Aggie conquered her old rival before one of the largest 
crowds to witness an Aggie home game by a 2 to 1 victory. The victory is sig- 
nificant in its exemplification of Aggie's fighting spirit which shook the jinx that 
had followed the team for the six previous games. It was the first victory over 
Amherst after five consecutive defeats and made us logical champions over the 
"Little Three." 

The team began its season against a veteran Williams team, which had given 
a good account of itself on its southern trip. However, the yet untried Agates 
felt confident of their ability. With "Norm" Nash on the rubber, the team won a 
very close and exciting game to the score of 1 to 0. Nash's pitching was well 
worth the commendation he received, allowing but two hits and striking out seven 
men. It was Captain McVey's base hit that brought in the winning run. 

Worcester was the next victim by the crushing score of 14 to 5. Aggie dis- 
played a hitting combination that batted four two base hits and nine base hits. 
It might be said that the score was close until the eighth inning when the team 
accounted for four runs, and in the ninth inning for five more. 

Maine was the victor by a count of 8 to 3, by virtue of seven errors, all of 
which were costly to the Aggies, and allowed the Maine team to score her eight 
runs unearned. The team outhit the Maine rivals by three hits. All in all the 
game was loosely played, and must be classed as one of the "off-days of the club." 

Wesleyan was decisively beaten on High School Day before a large crowd. 
The day was perfect for a baseball game, and the team showed exceptional ability. 
Nash struck out ten men while Griffin and Thompson each connected for a three 
base hit. Briggs and Moriarty batted safely to second. The score was 6 to 2. 

Clark was easily beaten 15 to 7. The team gained an early lead of eight runs 
by the third inning, and batted around in the first inning. It was in the ninth 
inning when Coach Ball replaced his team with substitutes that Clark gathered 
four runs. 


At Hanover the game started vigorously with Dartmouth taking the lead, 
when rain caused the termination of the game in the third inning. 

At Lowell the Agates again went on a batting rampage, collecting twenty 
hits to Lowell Textiles' five. In the end the score stood 15 to 1. Bowie played 
brilliantly as pitcher and besides he hit timely in the second inning for a third base. 
Moriarty starred in this game at short stop and hit safely five times out of as 
many times at bat. 

Tufts' superior team whitewashed the M. A. C. nine, 9 to 0. While Nash 
pitched a very creditable game the Jumbos hit hard in the first inning for a home- 
run and a three base hit. Robinson's exceptional pitching allowed but a few 
scattered hits. 

Aggie topped her New Hampshire rivals, and somewhat avenged the bitter 
defeat a year ago by a 2 to 1 score. Honors were even on both sides, each team 
played a hard and fast game. Aggies' two runs both came in the eighth when 
Slagton of New Hampshire seemed to weaken under the gruelling contest and al- 
lowed a two base hit which placed Haertl in scoring position. At this time Horan, 
batting for his initial appearance as pinch hitter, "came across" with a pretty 
single between third and second which brought Haertl home. Thompson then 
batted safely to first and Horan slid into the home plate. 

Amherst overcame M. A. C. on her own diamond, in another hard, closely- 
played game. The winning run came in the ninth on a squeeze play by a bunt 
from the Amherst freshman pitcher, Nichols. This run was the only score of the 

At Middlebury the team met defeat on one of the coldest, windiest days of 
the spring. Both teams played with "hoods", a uniform which hampered their 
style. After establishing a "2 to lead early in the game, the Agates played 
loosely thereafter and allowed Middlebury the long end of a 4 to 2 score. 
Kuzmeski did a creditable job of pitching. 

Vermont nosed out the Agates by a score of 2 to 1. Two costly errors ac- 
counted for the defeat, while Bowie did exceedingly well as pitcher. A double 
play Bowie to Nitkiewicz was one of the bright spots of Aggies' playing. 

In one of the most hectic games of the season Union overcame a 5 to lead 
by batting completely around in the sixth inning and tying the score. Union 
scored the winning run in the ninth. Coach Ball's team outhit the rivals and 
allowed but one earned run. The two errors of the game came in the sixth and 
spelt ruin for an otherwise perfect day. 

Northeastern batted itself to a 5 to 2 victory in a loosely played contest at 

Perhaps the most hectic spectacle of the season took place at Springfield 
College when Springfield batted Bowie for three home runs in the first inning and 
collected ten runs at the same time. Here Kuzmeski stepped into the game and 


presented the physical instructors with a slow ball which they found exceedingly 
hard to hit safely. Aggies' two runs came early in the eighth inning on errors. 

At Commencement, the jinx which had followed the team on its games away 
from home left, and the team recovered completely to suffer Amherst a 2 to 1 
defeat. Nash pitched his last game very ably, and the club used every oppor- 
tunity offered to advantage. A base on balls to Nash and later a passed ball 
accounted for the winning run of the eighth. It was a noble victory and closed 
the season for a hard fighting club. 

As a whole, the batting of the team showed much more strength than previous 
teams have shown. The infield was inclined to err at costly moments, but the 
outfield was steady, and it was not until the close of the season that the team met 
defeat. In Nash and Bowie Aggie had two effective twirlers, and Briggs, their 
battery mate, was equally as effective. Captain McVey at first base was always 
dependable and served as an excellent leader.

tEjje 1927 Jfootball Reason 

npHE 1927 football season opened about a week before the opening of college 
■*• with the usual comparatively large group of men present. Among those 
men to report for practice were nine letter and a good many sophomores. Thus 
we started the season with a fair group of veterans, but veterans that were perhaps 
the smallest that the college had ever seen. It was, in fact, a veritable fly-weight 

"Kid" Gore was assisted this past season by Louis Black '27 as line coach 
and the unfailing "Pop" Clark '87 as coach of C team. At the pre-season practice 
we also had on the field "Red" Sullivan '26, "Larry" Jones '26, "Roly" Sawyer 
'26, "Eddie" Bike '24, "Larry" Briggs '27, "Red" Ball, Prof. Markuson, and 
"Vic" Butterfield of Cornell, the son of former President Butterfield. 

Much time was put in each day to get the team into its traditional good con- 
dition and slow motion pictures were taken for instruction in technique. 

The opening game of the season with Bowdoin at Brunswick gave us all hope 
for the little team. They were greatly outweighed but not only held their own, 
but played a far superior game than their opponents. However they lacked the 
weight for the final push over the line for a touchdown and the game ended in a 
scoreless tie. 

In the second game of the season the teams were more evenly matched, but 
both were handicapped by a hot day and a bright sun which turned out to be our 
stumbling block. In the second half Bates kicked a punt into the sun and it was 
lost by our safety man to be recovered by them and thus give them their, only score. 

Again in the next game we were outweighed but fought against these odds 
with the true college spirit. It was interesting in this game to watch "Kid" 
Kneeland, 128-pound back, actually carry along the heavy Middlebury men on 
his shoulders. For the second time the team came away from heavy odds losers 
but not beaten. 

In the Williams game the Aggie midgets went up against a team which was 
heavily favored, but succeeded in scoring for the first time in the season, and that 
in the first few minutes of the game. At the start of the second period the Wil- 
liams "Vanzetti backfield" was put in and Howe succeeded in practically winning 
the game single handed. The team came out of this game at the short end of a 
31-7 score after a well fought game against AVilliams' flashing latteral passes. 

On October 22 Aggie met Worcester Tech only to have last year's score re- 
versed by a fluke when Converse after receiving a kick reversed his field and made 
the only score of the game. The team didn't have the necessary punch to put the 



ball across the line, altho it was several times brought within the very shadow of 
the goal posts. Altho it bettered Worcester in first downs, it failed to smash thru 
the best team that the latter has ever had. 

In the annual clash with Amherst, Aggie was again materially outweighed, 
but the line put up a good fight and several times held Amherst on first downs. 
Amherst's forward pass attack did much toward winning the game, altho our own 
passes gained much ground. It is rather interesting to note that one of these 
passes, Rudquist to Kneeland, which netted twenty-five yards, was performed 
while both were more or less out of their heads and had little idea where the play 
was going to go. This game cost us two serious injuries "Kid" Kneeland and 
"Jack" Quinn, the latter being replaced by Tuttle, who played his first game of 
varsity football like a veteran and did some of the best tackling of the season. 

The team entered the Springfield game with a great handicap in the loss of 
five regulars and an entirely new backfield. The Springfield team with its full 
strength proved to be too fast for the Aggies. Our aerial attack in this game 
proved to be on nearly equal terms with that of Springfield, and "Bob" Bowie's 
cool passing was the best work of the game. Springfield's heavier and faster team 
spelled the defeat of our crippled and reorganized team in a score of 26-0. 

Our game with Norwich University, one of the few home games which was 
scheduled for November 12 unfortunately had to be cancelled because of the flood 
which made it impossible for the cadets to reach Amherst. 

The final game of the year was to my mind a fitting climax to the 1927 season. 
Altho faced by a much heavier, faster, and more experienced team; in fact, one 
that outweighed them by twenty pounds and was the best in Tuft's history, 
the Aggies showed real spirit and genuine fighting. Beaten all year, they did not 
quit, they came up with super-human strength and battled in their last fight with 
a courage that must be commended. 

The game was lost by a 32-6 score but there is much consolation in the 
knowledge that two of the touchdowns were made on flukes. The referee did not 
see the plays and his failure to blow his whistle gave Tufts their chance to score. 

In closing, I might say that I believe that the team did their best. This year 
as in the past the team was made up of men who were seldom absent from prac- 
tice, always faithful in keeping training regulations and serious in their work. 
They played a disheartening season full of losses but were not beaten in spirit. 

The season was one full of handicaps of weight, speed, and experience and 
yet the team lived up to the well known motto, "A winner never quits and a quit- 
ter never wins". They ended the season fighting to the last with even doubled 
strength and in the closing game of the season on Alumni Field demonstrated a 
spirit of which the college may well be proud.

THE 1928 Hockey Team played and lost six games. Of the regular team, three 
men were seniors playing their third year of varsity hockey for M. A. C, one 
man was a junior who saw much service in 1927, the fifth a junior transfer playing 
his first season for M. A. C, the sixth was a sophomore playing his first year of 
regular hockey. The team was captained by Joseph H. Forest of Arlington, 
Mass., who was also captain of the 1927 team. Lorin E. Ball '21 served as coach. 
To what extent the weather permitted, two rinks were maintained, one on the 
Pond and the other on the rink level. 

The winter was about as "open" as any winter in the memory of the grounds 
department. The freshmen, no doubt fail to appreciate that fact, for each year 
the grounds department usurps more and more the power of the freshmen. Of 
the eleven games scheduled, five were cancelled: the games with Williams, Union, 
Vermont, Middlebury, and the second Amherst game. 

The first game was played at Amherst against Bates College, on January 
twelfth. Winter descended on the campus just long enough to provide fair ice for 
the game. Ice for the squad to practice on had been rare, but displaying consid- 
erable resourcefulness and versatility, the team had worked themselves into con- 
dition on "dry land" by playing a modified form of field hockey. The Maine sex- 
tet had also been handicapped by lack of ice, so that several of the Maine League 
games had to be cancelled or postponed. The team that started for M. A. C. was 
as follows: Patch, r.w.: Forest, l.w.; Frese, c; Abrahamson, r.d.; Nash, l.d. ; 
and Devine, goal. This was the first-string line-up the rest of the season, except 
that after the second game Phinney took the place of Devine at goal. The game 
was quite fast, rather rough at times, and quite erratic, as first games are inclined 
to be. The Bates team, with Captain White shining, shot two deceptive goals 
past Devine for a score of 2 to 0. Violette, the experienced goalie of the Bates 
team, played as good a game as any man on the ice. 

On the evening of January 17th, the hockey team and basketball five made 
the first lap of the trip by bus to West Point. Again the ice was soft, even at the 
Bear Mountain Park Skating Arena where the game was played. The play 
throughout was rather unorthodox in style. The whole affair was a somewhat 
rough-and-tumble fight in which the chief features were the wounding of "Al" 
Cook who relieved "Joe" Forest at left wing, and the fierce but vain onslaught of 
an Aggie five man offense in the closing few minutes of play. The final score was 
3 to 1. 



The Hamilton game was played on perfect ice on a closed rink. Much 
travel and little practice showed itself in the condition of the Massachusetts team, 
but after a fast game the score was 2 to 1 in favor of Hamilton. Phinney, a 
sophomore, starting his first game for M. A. C, played a splendid game at goal. 
Forest's score was a pretty bit of individual play. 

At New Hampshire, in a rough and ragged game, the home team won, 4 to 2, 
the two outstanding men on the ice being Captain Forest and the New Hampshire 

At Bates on the following night, the team played again on an indoor rink, 
but after an all-Aggie first period, condition began to tell, and the Bates men 
scored twice in the third period to Nash's one goal for M. A. C. 

In the last game of the season, Amherst beat M. A. C. on the latter's rink, 
4 to 1, in a game not at all one sided. This game started at twilight and was at 
least to some extent a matter of fortune and lamplight. 

So much for the fortunes of war. There is no gilded frame about the picture 
of the 1928 hockey team. If the percentage of games won is the sole criterion of a 
team's success, the less said the better. Yet there must be something more to 
any sport than the mere percentage column. Some luck here, a good play there, 
and positions are reversed. Of this team be it said that with all things dark for 
them, with defeat ever following them, they never once gave up the fight; and 
the 1928 team, and with it the Frese-Forest-Abrahamson senior trio, rendered 
well their charge — the Aggie Spirit!

1928 pas&etball Reason 

THE record of winning fifty percent of the games played in basketball at Aggie 
established by the 1922 team was increased to seven consecutive years. This 
season we had what might be termed an in and out club. The interesting part of 
it was in the rise from apparent mediocrity on occasions to a team displaying an 
errorless type of basketball. Coach Gore was quite fortunate in having four 
seniors with considerable experience whom together with "Freddie" Ellert, made 
up the "Doctor Denton's" of 1928, now known among other things for their 
display of so-called "sweat pants" which provided considerable interest all the 
way from West Point to the Hub. 

Opening the season with three straight victories seemed an auspicious begin- 
ning for any team and especially for our remodelled Drill Hall. Perhaps the best 
game of the season on the home court was with Maine. A typical Aggie team 
stepped onto the floor that night and played both a heady and flashy game and 
when the gun announced the end of the game every Aggie regular had counted 
from the floor once. Following this game came the appearance of Springfield 
College with a championship five and they were held to their lowest score. 

Up in Williamstown a large prom crowd were given a treat to be sure, in see- 
ing a great Aggie team come from behind and overshadow the "collegiate purple" 
with the best basketball of the season. A real defense and a successful offence 
proved beyond a doubt that a position defence can be played on any floor and the 
Aggies know how to play it. "Blondie" Thomas led the scoring with five baskets 
ably assisted by Capt. "Rollie" Reed and "Freddie" Ellert, whose scores came at 
the so-called psychological moments. Featuring at the other end of the court 
were "Line" Murdough, "Squash" McEwen, and "Ray" Mann with the result 
that the noted Williams forwards contented themselves with looking on. This 
victory marked the fourth defeat of Williams in four successive years. 

Again the Aggies rose to the peak of their form and conquered a well primed 
Worcester Tech team with a brilliant second half offense. Champs they were 
that night and played Tech off their feet. Captain "Rollie" Reed gave all present 
a treat with his six long shots in the second half. It was "Rollie's" night and a 
great one. "Blondie" came in for a large share of credit with four baskets and 
providing his prominent opponent an evening which turned out to be busier than 
successful. The team worked as a unit and "Freddie" Ellert turned in some fine 
passing along with his usual bag of tricks. The story of the defense is best told 
by the fact that Tech scored only eight times from the floor. 

"Line" Murdough, and "Squash" McEwen capably assisted by Ray Mann, 
took care of the back court in suitable fashion all season. The average number of 



i . ' : i '. ■ ' ' . '. ; : i : . i . ! : ' ■ 1 1 '..'.. 


baskets scored against Aggie was nine per game and makes their achievement 
worthy of mention. Captain "Rollie" Reed led in individual scoring and was fol- 
lowed by "Blondie" Thomas. "Squash" McEwen from his guard position, scored 
enough to bring him in third in this respect. At the end of the season "■Rollie" 
Reed was presented with the George Henry Richards Memorial Cup for Improve- 

Next year "Freddie" Ellert will be the only representative from this season's 
regular five. Along with him will be "Ray" Mann who got into most of the games 
this season and "Andy" Coukos who played so well again at Harvard this year. 
The Doctor Dentons extend best wishes to "Freddie" Ellert to lead Aggie to the 
top as representing the peer in Intercollegiate Basketball.

SINCE M. A. C. is a land grant college, the college and this department started 
together, in 1867, and the Military Department is an integral part of the col- 
lege life. 

Professor Goodell was the first military instructor. He later became Presi- 
dent of M. A. C, and in 1870 the first Army instructor came. This was Captain 
H. E. Alvord, and the drill was Artillery. Later it became Infantry, then during 
the World War the cadet corps became a Student Army Training Corps, and in 
1920 a Cavalry unit of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps. 

The frame stable built at that time was destroyed by fire in 1925 and was re- 
placed by a nice concrete block stable which is one of the show places of the 

The cavalry drill has stimulated interest in the cadet corps so that about 
twenty-five percent of each class elect to continue the course in the Junior and 
Senior years. It also offsets to a large extent the "inalienable right of the under 
classman to growl" at being required to take military for two years. 

There are a number of interesting things going on in the Military Department 
besides the prescribed course of instruction. All classes are involved in the Gui- 
don Competition for which a silk guidon is given to the troop having the best 
record in drill, shooting, riding, and general excellence in military subjects. The 
Stowell cup is presented annually to the Junior who makes the greatest improve- 
ment in horsemanship during the year. The Hughes Cup is in competition for 
the first time this year. It is presented by Captain Dwight Hughes, Jr., Assistant 
P. M. S. & T. 1922-1920, to the Senior or Junior who shows the most interest in 
extra-drill riding. The Night Ride, really one of the best sporting events in New 
England, is a matter of annual Senior competition, and is the only R. O. T. C. 
Night Ride held in the country. The fact that a four hundred mile march to 
Fort Ethan Allen, Vermont and back is required at the end of the Junior year 
does not keep it from being a glorious trip for those who have to go and for the 
few volunteers and guests each year. 

Then, of course, the whole department, instructors, cadets, horses, and all, 
enjoy showing what they can do on High School Day and at Commencement. 

Riding classes are held for the Faculty, the Staff and the Co-Eds. There 
are rifle teams competing with colleges all over the country, R. O. T. C. teams, 
Student teams, and Co-Ed teams. The Amherst Horse Show of which we are 
very proud is managed by the Military Department. In addition to showing- 
horses at home, students show horses at the Northampton and Mount Holyoke 
Shows. M. A. C. horses also accumulated ribbons and trophies in 1927 at the 
Hartford, New Haven, Springfield, and Turkey Hill Horse Shows. 

We drill when it's hot, we study when it's not, 

We get all sweaty parading in the sun, 
This uniform we earn while tactics we learn, 

But after all it's quite a lot of fun.

/CONVENTION demands that a write-up of this kind be most eulogistic. The 
^^ writer must ennumerate all those persons who have contributed to the glori- 
ous success of the organization. Mention must be made of those incidents, inter- 
esting or otherwise, which occurred during the concerts. And above all, no men- 
tion must be made of the fact that the club is not as good as it should be. 

Occasionally, however, there will come a time when the truth may be told, 
without elasticity of conscience. This year is among those times. The Musical 
Clubs have had a good season this year. Under the able direction of Mrs. Arthur 
B. Beaumont, the Glee Club developed into a strong organization, and with 
"Red" Marsh as a very efficient leader, the club proved itself capable of satisfying 
the most critical of audiences. Mr. M. H. Cubbon coached the orchestra and as 
a result of his work combined with the leadership of "Rocky" Smith, the orchestra 
became a very satisfactory unit. 

The number of "special acts" on the program was not as great as in previous 
years — but "Dave" Nason, with his trumpet, "Dutch" Ansell with his dancing, 
Don Tiffany with his dependability as a piano soloist, and "Jack" Guenard, 
with his banjo — contributed a very great deal to the success of every appearance. 

The Quartette composed of "Jack" Quinn, "Blondy" Thomas, "Red" Marsh 
and Don Tiffany made a tremendous hit whenever they appeared. During the 
latter part of the season "Ham" Nelson took the place of "Blondy" Thomas, who 
could not remain with the Glee Club because of the basketball season. 

Probably the only criticism which could be justly directed at the Glee Club 
was that there was not enough variation in the program. A little more contrast 
in the grouping of the songs might have been desirable.

THE Girls' Glee Ckib has completed its third year as a recognized college or- 
ganization. This year it has been managed by F. Dorothea Williams '28. 
Guila Hawley '29 has been the leader of the club for the past season. Lora 
Batchelder '28, our excellent pianist, ends her career with the club this year. 
Mrs. Arthur B. Beaumont, the coach of the club, has trained the various groups. 

The personnel of the Girls' Glee Club is made up of twenty-four girls from all 
four classes; the juniors and freshman make up the largest groups in the organiza- 

The club has had a good schedule this year. Many concerts have been given, 
and the season has been very successful. The programs presented, with slight 
variations, have been the same for each concert. They have consisted of college 
songs and three groups of six selected songs by the entire group and two numbers 
by the double trio and single trio. 

Solos have been rendered by Josephine Panzica '28. Piano solo by Lora 
Batchelder '28, and a piano duet by Lora Batchelder and Esther Perkins has 
added a novelty to the club. The clarinet solo and reading of the negro verse 
by Eleanor Caldwell '29 have helped give variety to the program. The old 
fashioned dancing by Esther Perkins and Edith Bertenshaw has been very 
popular; the Spanish Dance and Arkansas Traveler, by Josephine Panzica and 
Dorothea Williams has added color to the program. The three jazz numbers 
with their colorful costumes have been adjudged the "hit of the program".

T XriTH only one member of last year's team remaining, it was with by no 
' ' means an encouraging outlook that debating got under way last fall. Yet 
the relatively large number of men who started in on the preliminary practice, 
compensated for the lack of veteran material in a certain measure. 

It was, however, after all an essentially green team that received a decisive 
defeat at the hands of an experienced, aggressive team at Clark University on the 
thirteenth of March. The team consisted of Kreienbaum, Crowley, and Gold- 
berg. Smarting under this defeat, the two-man team, consisting of Crowley and 
Goldberg, which met Springfield College on March 23, succeeded in winning a 
3 to decision, on the negative of the question, the affirmative of which they had 
upheld at Clark, — the abandonment of the policy of protection of foreign invest- 
ments of American citizens by armed force. The next debate, held at M. A. C. 
on March 5, was a non-decision affair with the University of Vermont. Goldberg, 
Marcus, and Crowley upheld the affirmative of the proposition, Resolved, that 
the Philippines be granted their independence, subject to a Piatt Amendment, 
within five years. On March 10, the M. A. C. team, composed of Crowley, Mar- 
cus, and Goldberg, won an undivided decision here at Amherst in a debate with 
the representatives of the University of Maine. There still remain two debates, 
both of them here at Amherst, and both of them on the question of protection of 
foreign investments by armed force. 

Turning to the work of the Freshmen, we find that a small group made up of 
Frank T. Douglass, Zoe E. Hickney, Arnold W. Olsson, and Leopold H. Taka- 
hashi, has been persistently working since the middle of the fall term. Their de- 
feat at the hands of the Williston Academy team in the dual debate held on March 
3, was due not to their own weakness, but to the greater strength of the opposition. 
To James Cunningham, who directed the Freshmen during the fall work, and es- 
pecially to Dennis Crowley, under whose guidance they have continued their 
work, much credit must be given. 

It is not alone through individual effort that the great improvement which 
the debators have shown has been achieved. A large proportion of it is to be 
attributed to the patient criticism and sound advice which the coach, Professor 
Walter E. Prince, has at all times given.

tKJe Eoteter Boaters; 

THE Roister Doisters this year have maintained the high standing set by the 
Dramatics Club in previous years. 

The Prom Show for 1927 was a mystery play "In the Octagon" by Professor 
Rand. It was based on college life and was well adjusted for presentation by a 
college dramatics group. Professor Rand's directing did much to bring out fully 
the possibilities of the plot. It is rather difficult to say who had the leading part, 
since the honors were fairly well divided among Neil C. Robinson, Maxwell H. 
Goldberg, and Henry W. Jensen. There was no leading lady. The play was 
presented at Deerfield Academy and at 
Northfield Seminary, before large audi- 
ences. At college the presentation was 
so well received that the play was given 
again to conclude the High School Day 

The 1927 Commencement Play was 
"Captain Applejack." In view of the 
difficulties under which this was staged, 
and the short time in which it was pre- 
pared, it was a decided success. Neil G. 
Robinson stood out as the leading man 
portraying the dual part of a pirate Cap- 
tain Applejack and an English gentleman, 
Ambrose Applejohn. Hilda Goller showed 
great versatility in portraying Madam 
Valeska, a Russian dancer, a Portuguese 
captive, and a woman of the underworld. 
They were well supported by the other 
members of the cast to whom great 
credit is due. 

The 1927 "Aggie Revue" provided 
the usual round of fun and entertainment. 
A freshman play "The Truth Will Out" 
and a skit "Mother's Mistake" were coached by Maxwell Goldberg and were 
well received by the audience. "Red" Morrison, The Campus Quartet, and 
Bates' Collegians were among the headliners. 

This year the Prom Show is to be the "The Youngest" by Philips Barry.

^fte Collegian 

/^VNCE more the MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN has climbed to a place of 
^^ honor and is now recognized by most students as one of the most worthwhile 
of the academic activities. The struggle to regain its lost supremacy has been 
going on for over four years, but now the publication has been elevated to a place 
worthy of its name. 

The culmination of this comeback is due to a large extent to the cooperation 
between the Editorial and Business Boards. The men who have held the execu- 
tive positions on these Boards during the past year were all taken on in their 
freshman year and, therefore, rose side by side to their present offices. Ernest 
L. Spencer and Ellsworth Barnard of the Editorial Board and Edwin A. Wilder 
of the Business Board have been responsible to some extent for the present rating 
of the publication. 

Several new features have made their appearances in its columns during the 
past year. The most noticeable is the column devoted to the Bull Pen, a depart- 
ment developed and managed by Harold E. Clark, as a continuation of the Cider 
Press. The box devoted to the Outstanding Performance of each week has 
created much interest among the students. The Faculty Department has been 
expanded so that now the women members are interviewed and consulted as well 
as the men. 

In the Business Department the most noteworthy change has been made in 
the circulation division. Under the present system students may secure their 
copies at the office on the days of issue instead of waiting three or four days for 
mail delivery. A change has also been noticed in the number of outside subscrip- 
tions which goes to show that the campus activities are being followed by a large 
number of alumni. 

During the past year the Editorial Board has successfully undertaken four 
feature issues. The first, a rotogravure issue, was published last Commencement. 
The other three were all new undertakings and reflected much credit to the Board. 
They consisted of the Presidential Inauguration issue, a special faculty issue, and a 
Leap Year Number. The last two of these features were published during the 
winter term. 

The past year has been outstanding in the history of the Collegian because 
of the personnel of the Editorial and Business Boards. Neither Board was com- 
pelled to drop any of its members because of ineligibility produced by inefficiency 
in studies, a record unique in the history of the publication. This goes to show 
that the Collegian is able to elect its new members from the student body as a 
whole instead of being forced to elect from a chosen few.

h I S HE primary purposes of the Index are two: the first to be an index of all the 
-*- activities, athletic and academic, on the campus and the second to be original 
and interesting. In the first we have succeeded. As to the second, well, we leave 
that to you. 

Each year as a new Index Board comes into existence many and varied are 
the plans which are being aired, concerning the novel ways in which their year- 
book can be made the best ever. About Christmas time the ardor of the mem- 
bers of the board has somewhat cooled, in fact one might almost say that it has 
become frigid, and from then on originality becomes a matter of minor importance. 
This year, in an attempt to show originality, we have tried something which has 
never been done by any Index board before; we have abolished the usual form of 
write-up for the members of the Junior Class and have substituted another. 
There are also several other innovations, such as an elaboration of the statistics 
regarding the Freshmen and the inclusion of material from the Inkhorne. 

After all is said and done, just what is the value of publishing a college annual? 
The value is threefold: in the first place it gives the undergraduates of the institu- 
tion an insight into the comparative values of all of the activities which are going 
on; in the second place it acquaints the faculty, not only with those professors 
with whom an opportunity for daily contact does not present itself, but also with 
those students who are active in fields of interest about the campus who do not 
directly affect certain members of the faculty; and finally it presents to the alumni 
of the college a summary of all that has been accomplished during the year. In 
these three ways our present yearbook has certainly fulfilled its purpose and now 
it is about to be subjected to the greatest test of any college publication; namely, 
the criticism of the students. If this Index is not a good one you may all have 
guilty consciences, for it is a book representing the class of 1929, and you are 
members of that class. 

And now, to conclude, we are presenting to you an Index over which we have 

spent many a weary hour; into which we put the very best which we could offer; 

on which rests our only claim to fame. We hope that is the kind of a book in 

which you may take pride, the kind of a book which will be vividly remembered, 

"Lest we forget, lest we forget."

1929 Snbex Character* 

MANY are called, but few are chosen" expresses very aptly the feeling which 
overcame us, when we were confronted with the task of selecting class 
characters. And task it was! Picture, if you can, a class all of whose members 
are outstanding. Then imagine yourselves called upon to choose a certain few to 
stand out more especially. 

We herewith set forth our class characters. In presenting them to you, we 
maintain that they are but the prototypes of the class as a whole. Accept them 
as such. And you who cannot see wherein justice has been done in all cases, con- 
sider the difficulties which faced us in this big undertaking, and reflect upon the 
maxim, "There ain't no justice anyhow."

THE Inkhorne was organized and remained under the surveillance of the Aca- 
demics Activities Board the winter of 1927. There was a group of modest 
writers who wished to gather, that they might subject their work to group criti- 
cism; which allows for a more sound basis and constructive advance than an in- 
dividual's judgment; that they might form a literary fellowship which would 
serve as a bulwark of encouragement when failure follows failure. Even though 
the failure may be one of the ultimate steps toward success, in a college where 
art is rather overwhelmed by science, it is often more than the individual's courage 
can bear to stand the buffetings of defeat. So the individuals have joined in 
fellowship of industry and fraternity of spirit that none aspiring may be unduly 
daunted. The group has been further inspired by the graciousness of the fol- 
lowing who have opened their homes to it: Professor Frank P. Rand, Professor 
Charles H. Patterson, Professor Walter E. Prince, Professor Frank A. Waugh, 
Professor Laurence R. Grose, Professor Edna L. Skinner, Mr. Alfred Nicholson, 
Mr. Walter Dyer, and Miss Elizabeth Hallowell. 

As a result of this banding together, the members of the Inkhorne have found 
delight in progress in the art of writing. It is a delight such as may rise in any 
venture, as, after arduous labor, successive stepping stones are passed over. 
After various and numbered attempts at rhyming and rhythm, the group mem- 
bers feel a greater tolerance and a keener appreciation for the work of others; 
and have succeeded in developing a degree of literary expression. Twice in recog- 
nition of excellent work the best manuscripts of a year have found their way to 

As this 1929 Index has emphasized the aims and accomplishments of the 
Division of the Humanities it is fitting that the best works of the year along 
literary lines should appear in the pages of this book. 

The aim of the Inkhorne group is to seek and record in excellent literary form, 

beauty in the common, everyday things of life, and to go forth from the group 

with a certain culture of their own making, and a lively interest which they may 

carry with them through life.

THE task is completed. The Index is done. And we, who have been privileged 
to guide this — our yearbook — through the vicissitudes entailed in the struggle 
for publication — can now drop our pens, sit back, wipe our gleaming brows, and 
mouth wordless phrases of unutterable relief. 

And so we give this volume to you — our classmates and you may sit in judg- 
ment upon us — but don't let us hear you. 

There has been pleasure in the formulation of this book — the pleasure 
arising from creative work, whether it be the erection of a cathedral, the planning 
of a great park, the delicate construction of a cello, or the publication of an 

Just one last word before you close the covers of this tome — for so it some- 
times seemed to us. If one of you has been slighted, the slight was unconscious. 
If your virtues have not been sufficiently emblazoned — deepest apologies. If 
there has been any grievious omission, we plead for forgiveness. Remember that 
when, in twenty years, as you dreamily ruffle the pages of this Index your 
memories will be too golden to perceive the dross of failure in our yearbook. 
Criticism will be dulled and judgment kinder, then.
