TT'OR fifty-nine years an unbroken line of 
-*- Indexes has portrayed the yearly life of 
M. A. C. They have expressed student 
opinion, pictured student activities, and 
recorded administrative changes. This is 
volume sixty, and is commemorative of the 
passing of six decades of college history. 
It is intended to summarize the preceeding 
volumes and to show the birth and evolu- 
tion of our present institutions. It has, in 
short, the same motif as the first thin 
pamphlet issued by the pioneer class of 
1871 — "to represent the internal growth 
and status of the college."

/^NE does not think of a writer as a man of action. Yet one of the busiest 
^^ men on this campus is the administrator of academic activities, committee 
man, advisor, author, editor and teacher, Frank Prentice Rand. When his name 
is mentioned among the students they think of the inspirational, the sensitive 
criticism given to their pubHcations; they think especially of the successful pro- 
ducer of the college plays. Students do not know, but members of the faculty 
recollect the lowly state to which our public offerings, particularly dramatic per- 
formances, had come before Mr. Rand took full charge of them in 1920. This 
college now has public presentations of a high class because of Mr. Rand's advice 
and direction. For his interest and success every one connected with the college 
must be grateful. 

If one were to mention the name Frank Prentice Rand in the hearing of a 
member of the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity, that member would say enthusias- 
tically "Why, that's the Editor of our fraternity magazine." It is a difficult trick 
to edit a fraternity magazine that anyone will care to read, but Mr. Rand actually 
does it. The Inkhorne that caused so much surprise because no one except the 
English faculty knew that such talent could be found among our students, owed 
its inception and the careful selection of its contents to Mr. Rand. 

Mr. Rand is best known as the author of "Garlingtown," a collection of verses 
dealing with life in a rural New England community. Here is sympathetic inter- 
pretation of the problems of everyday life. A fair estimate would be that the 
poems portray these people and scenes just as they are in verse of true poetic form 
and quality. Who that has read it can fail to enjoy "Criteria" a farmer's judg- 
ment of his hired man.^ David Grayson said of Mr. Rand's "Dr. Ben of Butter 
Hill" "We can feel in these verses the courage, the loyalties, the beauty, — the 
wistful beauty of New England country life." Mr. Rand's plays too must not be 
omitted; especially "John Epps," an understanding treatment of the beginnings 
of the college under President Clark; and the beautiful play in verse dealing with 
the life of that mirror of chivalry, Sir Philip Sidney. 

Mr. Rand loves the country of Shakespeare and the English Lakes which he 
has so often visited. Traveling is an inspiration to his teaching. It may be 
understood that the English Department feels especial pride that it has, to conduct 
its course in Contemporary Poetry, one of the younger American poets. 

Is it necessary to say of such a man that his interest in the student is genuine 
and that his time belongs to the student? This interest is enduring. Few men 
on the campus retain as sincere an interest in our alumni. Mr. Rand's heart is 
given to the college. It is pleasant to know that the students recognize the value 
of such a force as this, so actively exerted, in the life of the institution.

(Greeting from 71 

AT the gracious invitation of the "Index," the Class of 1871, the pioneer class 
- in the honorable procession of nearly three score classes, once more makes 
its bow to the undergraduates of M. A. C. and congratulates them on the splendid 
heritage into which they have come. To few men is granted the privilege en- 
joyed by the living men of '71 to have been part of, and watched over, as brothers, 
the growth of the now great family, each member of which has enjoyed the nurture 
of four years under the Maroon and White. 

The twenty-eight men, who fifty-nine years ago received their diplomas 
from the hand of President W. S. Clark, learned the topography of Amherst 
and the Connecticut Valley largely on foot and not by the automobile; nor 
could they "listen in" to King George before breakfast as we did this morning; 
but they did have a personal intimacy with Clark, Stockbridge, Goodell, and 
Goessman under circumstances hardly possible to the student of today. Result: 
a loyal band that, though dwindled from twenty-eight to seven, plus a few loyal 
non-graduates, hopes to be with you at Amherst in June to celebrate their six- 
teenth reunion on their fifty-ninth anniversary. 

In these days when the value of college training is so often challenged let us 
remember that four years spent in studious effort under guidance of men of the 
type of our best teachers makes for a life comradeship and an inspiration to a 
life of useful service found nowhere else. Long live the high standards and ideals 
of M. A. C. 


For the Class of '71.

The College 



i:ije 0xim of iH. ^. c. 

HE honor of conceiving the idea of a college for the scientific investigation of agricul- 
tural problems belongs to M.l'Abbe Rosier, who broached it to the ministry of Louis 
XVI in 1775. But his plan, like many another great idea, was coldly received by the 
government and the world at large. More than sixty years later (1837) far sighted 
Americans began to see the need of such an institution and in 1849, thru the eflforts of 
Marshal P. Wilder, a bill for the founding of an agricultural school passed the Massa- 
chusetts Senate. It was defeated in the House of Representatives by men who could 
see no need for "book farmers." The agitation, however aroused national interest, and 
in 1858, Senator Morrill of Vermont, then a representative, presented a bill for the 
founding of state agricultural colleges. President Buchanan vetoed the bill, and the 
honor of approval was reserved for Abraham Lincoln in 1862. The total grant under the 
Morrill Act amounted to over nine million acres of land — the share of Massachusetts 
being some 360,000 acres, which when sold, brought about $236,000. In the acceptance 
of this grant in 1863, Massachusetts became the proprietor and patron of the college, 
and bound herself to provide for, and maintain it forever. 

Once the money was available for the college, a great controversy started as to its 
location. Most of the existing colleges wanted to take the funds and add agricultural 
courses to their curricula. Harvard in particular expected to get it. Amherst and 
WiUiams also had hopes. As the national endowment required a department of mechani- 
cal arts, three tenths of the income was given to the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology. A board of Trustees was appointed, and, after studying the existing colleges, 
decided that, in as much as collegiate instruction in agriculture was a new field in Ameri- 
can Education, Massachusetts should have an independent Agricultural College which 
should work out its own destiny. 

Four towns competed for the location of this college: Northampton, Springfield, 
Lexington and Amherst. Each raised the $75,000 required by the State, and the 
trustees chose Amherst because of the surpassing beauty of its natural scenery, and 
because the Connecticut valley was "the foremost section in rural pursuits." 

The Hon. Henry Flagg French was elected the first president in 1864, but resigned 
soon after when he felt that his wishes had not been consulted in the controversy over 
the building of North and South Colleges. He was succeeded in 1866 by Professor 
Paul Ansel Chadbourne, whose health forced him to resign in 1867. William S. Clark 
then became president, and M. A. C. had the unusual distinction of having had three 
presidents before it had any students. 

Commumcatioit Jfrom tfje Clasisi of 1881 

THE College was at its nadir in 1881. No less than five men — Clark, Flint, 
Stoekbridge, Chadbourne and Greenough — served as presidents during five 
years 1879-1883. The faculty could be numbered on the fingers of one's hands, 
the student body, on the fingers of eight pairs of hands. The State gave it a mere 
$10,000 a year, the Federal Government nothing. Governor Thomas Talbot 
tried to close its doors or, as an alternative, to turn it over to Amherst College — 
anything to get rid of it. Its constituency, the farmers, scoffed at "book farming" 
and there were none so poor as to do it reverence. The stork was just about to 
bring the newly born Experiment Station. The very word "extension," as 
applied to agriculture, had not been coined. The physical plant included two 
dormitories; a barn-like wooden structure in which was a bleak room used for 
miscellaneous purposes, including compulsory chapel exercises, as well as mathe- 
matics and chemistry classrooms and laboratores, gymnasium, drill-hall and 
armory — a veritable blunderbus of a building; an uninviting hash house; barns; 
a botanic museum; and greenhouses. The farmlands were still in part untamed. 
The writer grabbed many alder roots with his classmates, doing unpaid student 
labor of an "educational" character. 

However, the instructional staff was a good one and, with limited resources, 
it wrought out of somewhat unpromising material a product of which Alma Mater 
need not be ashamed. At least one great captain of industry, three or more uni- 
versity and college presidents, four or more experiment station directors and 
deans of agriculture and kindred subjects are numbered among the graduates of 
that day. 

Eighty-one salutes thirty-one and bids it Godspeed!

Q. Was the Gymnasium Association organized merely for gymnastic activi- 
ties (Indian clubs, flying rings, parallel bars, etc.) or was it also intended to pro- 
mote indoor track and field athletics? 

A. Only for the first mentioned, and you might leave off the etc. as we only 
had a trapeze, horizontal bar, and a few pulley tots. Four of us as freshmen 
used the gym between 11 and 12 p. m. by candle light. This was the only chance 
we had at the place. 

Q. Did the Gymnasium Association have anything to do with outdoor 
track and field athletics? 

A. Yes, in baseball, and later football, which were the only sports. Little 
later tennis came in, and we had a few walking matches. 

Q. Two Field Days were held, in '75 and '76; did the Gymnasium asso- 
ciation have anything to do with these events? 

A. Before my time — I entered in '77. 

Q. How was money raised for a track team or general track athletics? 

A. By using a club with students in general, but this was only for uniforms 
as at that time there was no such thing as gate money. 

Q. Where can I obtain records of expenditures for track and field athletics 
during the early years of the college? 

A. I doubt very much whether any records were kept for future supervision. 

Q. Where was the Hampshire Park where the first Field Days were held? 

A. I went there a number of times, but my mind is hazy just where it was, 
somewhere southeast from Amherst. 

Q. What was the attitude of the students toward track and field athletcis 
while you were at college? 

A. I would say 75% of the students were fond of some kind of sport. We 
used to walk to the Conn, river to swim, and in winter to play Hockey. I remem- 
ber at one time at least 20 of us, swimming across the river, and then having a race 
back again. To show how easy it was to raise money, the rifle team had to steal 
lead pipe and such, melt it down for bullets with which to use in matches with 
other teams, and we had one man that made as high as four bulls' eyes out of five 
at 100 yds. shooting at a 4" bull's eye — when the regulation was 8" for 100 and 
200 yds. We shot at the 4" for sometime both at 100 and 200 yds. before we 
discovered our error, and made bulls' eyes at 200 yds. with old rifles pulling at 14 
lbs. instead of 7 lbs. A visit of the team to the Springfield aresenal corrected this.

The Classes 


^fte €arlj> ©aj^sJ of tfje College 

T7R0M the moment of its conception, the college faced opposition of all kinds. The 
^ legislature was opposed on the grounds that first, it would not receive any students; 
second, if it did receive any they would be infants; third, if they did, have any and they 
were not infants, they would be boys who had never seen a cow, but had always drunk 
"pump milk." a regular white-livered set of boys sent out into the country for their 
health. The people as a whole were skeptical of the advantage of "book learning" for 
farmers. Only a few of the educational leaders of the age realized the possibilities of the 
college, and had hopes for its future. Fortunately for the college, four of these leaders 
were its faculty, — "the Big Four" — President William S. Clark, Hon. Levi Stockbridge, 
Professor Charles A. Goessmann, and Professor Henry H. Goodell. These men had 
vision, and faith to work for it. They were the greatest men the faculty ever had, and 
with the whole world watching the experiment, proved that an agricultural college could 
be of immense importance to civilization. 

The college opened its doors in October 2, 1867, and the first students presented 
themselves for the entrance examinations. Every thing was crude and unfinished. 
Four buildings were ready for use: South College, a boarding house north of the ravine, 
a chemical laboratory, and a botanic museum on the east side of the campus. The 
college farm was composed of six estates, and was intersected with old Virginia rail 
fences, hedge rows, and old apple trees. In spite of these difficulties the enrolment in- 
creased, and by December 17, totaled forty-seven, none of them white-livered. These 
pioneers of the Class of 1871 became imbued with the enthusiasm and optimism of the 
faculty, and faced the ridicule of the world in general and the classical student on the hill 
in particular. They divided into squads and went to work grubbing out apple trees, 
digging drains, husking corn and levelling the land, while Professor Stockbridge, his 
pants tucked into his boots, superintended the work. 

Amherst College cooperated and gave valuable assistance to the new institution. 
Many of its faculty came down and gave lecture courses, the museum and library were 
open to M. A. C. students, and for the first two terms the newcomers marched, two by 
two, up to the Old Amherst College Chapel for their Sunday religious worship. 

President Clark was keenly aware of the need of attracting visitors and of keeping 
the embryo college before the eyes of the public. To accomplish this agricultural socie- 
ties were invited to hold conventions on the campus, various new machines were tested, 
and important experiments were conducted. Professor Goessmann worked on the sugar 
beet and the value of commercial fertilizers, and President Clark studied the flow of sap, 
and the expansive force of growing vegetable tissues. This latter experiment obtained 
more newspaper publicity than the others because of its uniqueness. A young squash 
was "harnessed" to a lever and as it grew lifted the weights attached to the other end. 
By the end of the summer, the forty-seven and a quarter pound squash had lifted more 
than two and one half tons of iron! 

By 1876 the new college was so firmly established and had such a world wide reputa- 
tion that the imperial government of Japan determined to use it as a model for their 
college, and asked President Clark to help them. In nine years, thru the efforts of a few 
inspired leaders and an enthusiastic student body, an experiment in education had 
become the greatest college of its kind in the world. 

jfrom tlje Cla^s; of 1891 

npHE "old timer" of the class of '91, looking back over forty years sees a vastly 
-'- different college than the present "Aggie." Trees which we set out now shade 
the walks, and the pond which we dammed now reflects the setting sun. Gone 
is the old Chem Building, the compulsory labor and the North College piazza. 
Yet '91 advocated, in its college days, many of the things that '31 now has. We 
started the first college newspaper in our Junior year, the "Aggie Life." It has 
persisted, and stands as one of the greatest college accomplishments. We also 
advocated the building of dormitories for women so that M. A. C. could be co- 
educational and tried to get a "cut" and an elective system put into effect. All 
these the present students enjoy, — thanks to our efforts as we like to believe. 

In those days almost everyone lived in the "dorms," and we had only three 
fraternities; D.G.K., Q.T.V., and Phi Sig. We ate together in boarding clubs for 
about $2.50 per week. Everyone knew everyone else and we all played either 
class or varsity Baseball, Football or Tennis, these being the only sports. We 
also had our midnight escapades, and they still linger in our minds, particularly 
our protest against chapel. We took the benches out and put them on the lawn, 
stole the desk, and substituted an encyclopedia for the Bible. Yes, the days were 
different, but '91 got a good education and enjoyed every minute of its Aggie Life.

U'OR many years the Index contained a

happenings of the college year. This diary 
has, in the course of time, degenerated into 
the present "Calendar." The following 
items were picked as being of interest to the 
present day .student, and are indicative of the 
rest. Perhaps they prove that there was 
more "College spirit"' and less restraint in 
the "Good Old Days'" than there is now, 
perhaps they do not prove anything.

Senior Clagg ||i£itorp 

ON September 13, 19'26, 210 of us were subjected to the throes of "How many 
legs has a Zulu?" Our class was the first to enjoy the abolition of the pond 
parties and at first impulse give the Sophs a quick, but thorough splashing. Our 
Freshman class was the first in 20 years to defeat the superiors in the night shirt 
parade. To most of us the memory of the burning of the Frosh caps will be most 
dear. We were also the last Freshman class to be greeted by Prexy Lewis. 

Sophomore year found us afflicted with the whys and wherefores of Zoology, 
Physics and such. But though buried deep in studies, we found time to drag the 
Frosh through the muck and mire and send some of our own men into Varsity 
teams. We started one of the biggest social functions of the year: The Mardi 
Gras. Thus passed the second year, — for most of us a year of adjustment. 

As upperclassmen we had to delve deeply into our various majors. Each one 
began to take care of his individual work. 1930 has not shirked in its output 
of students, athletes, or social leaders. In this year the latter carried over a 
glorious prom without the loss of one precious "shekel." It was in this year that 
there came the first tragedy of our class; the sudden death of one of our leaders 
and students: John B. Howard, Jr. 

Our Senior year truly was the climax of all the preceding years. The year 
had barely started when one of our fondest dreams came true. The Physical 
Education Campaign was a success and classes after us can enjoy the comforts 
of the new structure. Victories were a common occurrence to our football team, 
and the basketball team of the 1930 season will always be one sweet memory. 
Our famous Freshman team had not weakened during the intervening years and 
came out strong and victorious in the winter of 1930 with "Freddie" Ellert as a 
floor coach. 

Thus time has overtaken us and our four years of college have come to a close. 
Though without apparent success we have made earnest endeavors to change the 
name of the college, nevertheless we hope to give back to it as much as it has 
given us. "Massachusetts, we are here."

last reason is good enough to get you anywhere. Tell me about that wonderful 
class of yours." 

N. A. — "We claim distinction, Pete, not only as the 60th class to enter Massa- 
chusetts but also as a class of unusual prowess. Back in the fall of '27, when we 
first made our appearance in Amherst, the Dean early recognized our worth and 
implored us to stay. Some of us disappointed him by leaving a little early, but 
fortunately, they were few in number. 

Our first year was filled with interclass triumphs of which the football and 
hockey games, and Razoo Night are outstanding. 

Our sophomore year was colored by victories in both the 60 Man and 6 Man 
Rope Pull, and a tie in the football game. The Old Clothes Party and Mardi Gras 
were successes not to be ignored, while the crowning accomplishment was the way 
in which my classmates supported the Physical Ed. Building Fund. 

As Juniors, we made a name for ourselves in varsity athletics and academic 
activities. This year found everyone conscientiously pursuing his major courses.

We may be thankful that "Scottie" does not always chatter as 
fast as she did in "Craig's Wife," not because she wouldn't talk 
sense, but because we would be too lazy to keep up with her. 
Even tho she does get high marks she has not the bulging brow 
and weak eyes of the true student — she always looks fresh and 
wholesome. We like to remember her as leading the Glee Club 
or making us laugh at one of her well known impersonations.

"Stretch" had an advantage over the rest of us, because from 
the first we had to look up to her. She is one of those cheerful,

color, but as yet the formula hasn't been revealed.

things scholarly does not exclude him from innumerable class 
offices or extra-curricula activities, nor do they in turn exclude 
him from the Honor Group. Paradoxical as it may seem, he is

"Norm" is that intangible thing "class spirit" personified. 
He is always willing and eager to keep things going and if things 
are not lively enough he starts something new. For constant 
cheerfulness, he can't be beaten and if all else fails he can make a 
living by posing for Pepsodent ads. "Norm" is equally impres- 
sive when declaiming "Henry of Navarre"; speaking in behalf 
of some drive or disciplining some freshman in his position as a 
member of the Senate.

We cannot overlook "Cy" in our reminiscences; that burly 
figure before whose weight many a football hero has bowed. A 
fighter to the core! We cannot forget his extreme modesty in the

qualities which have made him so popular among his classmates 
and which seem to foretell his success in the future.

We think of "Breezy" as an energetic spirit with only one mood, 
possessing an irrepressible effervescence of good humor. When 
his wit threatens to cloud over with melancholy, his imagination 
keeps the ball rolling. As a Landscape artist, however, his 
imagination aids him the most, for he enjoys exercising that 
peculiar possession, — particularly in colorful decorations, as those 
who attended the Military Ball can testify.

that of writing verse, and we congratulate her.

When someone defined a gentleman as "One who never unin-

is the gentleman of the class, quiet, refined, unobtrusive, kindly,

appreciates music, loves dancing, and has the highest ideals of 
anyone we know. Altogether a very unusual man, and a great

and in some cases gets the answer that he wants. "Happy" is

when anticipating a week-end trip. The reason for his extra joy 
at week-ends is his secret so we won't even hint at it.

goal — the Honor Group.

In spite of a fine appreciation of the futility of life, "Dan" has 
done much towards making our lives less futile. It was "Dan" who

his ridiculing pen made Ag. Ec. 26 almost tolerable; his work on

It is comforting sometimes to find in the midst of our thought, 
our skepticism, and our turmoil, one such as Arnold, — one whose 
life is an open book, with no regrets, and with a naive moralistic

bonded with rigid ideals. With his philosophy we may not agree, 
yet when weightier problems have lead us to disillusion we can

in ideas, in gesture, in people, in language (she speaks fluently in 
five and is conquering another) — all these are among her greatest 
loves. So, from this you must infer vibrant, almost inexhaustible 
energy and rapid change of mood. Conversation is her favorite

which the Roister Doister productions take place is due in part to

"Marge", with her winning smile and her jolly "Hi ", is the one 
girl on campus who treats everyone alike. She is a typical college 
co-ed, who is fascinatingly charming, very kind hearted and who 
doesn't care for studies particularly, but when she works, works 
hard. "Marge" doesn't have to try to make friends for she 
captures them from the start, and may she always admire people 
who are "frank! "

We suspect that when everything else is gone that smile will 
remain, for Clyde's love of roughhousing is chronic. We always 
look for him when there are disturbances at "Campions". His 
optimism is a true novelty in contrast with the soberness of many 
of our classmates, yet there must be serious ambition behind it 
all for he is majoring in Chemistry.

This dashing, dapper, debonaire youth is by common acclaim 
our smoothest male and the best dancer. In spite of these pop- 
ular qualities, in spite of an enviable address list of Nordic Beau- 
ties, even in spite of the proximity of three thousand other charm- 
ing women, he has never deserted the Abbey. He is versatile 
as well as cosmopolitan, and he performs equally well on a dance 
floor, a trumpet, a sofa, or a drawing board.

this romance turns his heart to the great out-of-doors. Hunting,

pulls himself away from his studies. Above all Johnny is a

"end runs " and "cross bucks" with mystic terms of "Loepe-

to write verse and draw, but he exhibits his talents only to his 
most intimate friends. He owns a sense of humor that he imparts 
only infrequently, but he is kind enough to laugh at other's jokes 
He is a woman hater and a philosopher but the latter is not the 
cause of the former.

an entomologist, Lou indignantly denies any relation with bugs. 
He insists that he is no longer in the "larva stage", and those who 
know something about his marks and his smooth way with the 
women easily share his conviction. Lou's chief motto is: "Na-

Poor Rubin, he only got 84 in his last exam and he's dreadfully 
worried; he might even flunk out of college with such low marks. 
We can remember vividly the many times that "Ted" won the 
various prizes in "Drippy" Drains Hort. classes, but the place 
where he excelled was in Public Speaking. He did not hide 
behind the desk but stood out in the open and made his speech 
with appropriate gestures and we may say that (contrary to the 
general custom) he talked about interesting subjects.

him, ever does.

in mystics and dozing felines. But behind that dreamy, tolerant

know because "Herb " is a gentleman: hence rarely shows what he 
thinks. Philosophy is his weakness, and he spends most of his

he cannot bear ridicule from those who cannot understand.

Leclair he is the most conscientious worker in the Art Department

will someday sing the hymn that is announced in chapel instead 
of one of his own choosing. When it is a question of doing some-

believe it. 

But we're game! We've won our way through a memorable freshman year — 
a year that will live in our memory — and we are well on our way to conquering the 
second year — and the freshman! We won the pond rope pull, razoo night, the 
football and hockey games, staged a brilliant Mardi Gras, and innovated a suc- 
cessful Soph-Freshman social. (Note: — Keep this under your hat! We lost the 
six-man rope pull, the nightshirt parade and the basketball game.) 

The campus.'* Lord, how we love it! Else why, oh why did we return to 
those nightmares of "hogs in the corn belt" or those ghostly moments when we 
first faced our grinning classmates in public speaking. 

In all seriousness, though — we really think that we are a very good class. 
As for the other classes — they have our loyal backing. And Bay State! We love it! 
Need we say more?

TN September of this previous fall, a strange, yet not unusual, band of converts 
appeared on campus. These followers of Athena at first believed themselves 
to be sateUtes of the goddess of knowledge, but after a few experiences in the 
Goessman Auditorium of no longer than three hours duration, they became firmly 
convinced that they had followed Orpheus into the land of Pluto. However, as 
fearless as the class of '33 will always prove itself, they decided to fight their way 
back to earth with spears poised against the temptations of the inhabitants of the 
underworld, the Sophomores. 

The 60-man rope pull proved to be one of the first set backs, although we suc- 
ceeded in keeping ourselves from becoming "all wet". However, after a little 
more struggle against the evils of Hades, we succeeded in reciprocating by winning 
the six-man rope pull. 

Razoo Night resulted in another proof of victory over evil. Although it first 
appeared as though we had weakened, when we lost the wrestling and boxing 
matches, yet we rallied once again in the night shirt parade. 

The loss of the Football game only strengthened our toilers to defeat their 
would-be masters in both inter-mural games, basketball and hockey. 

To date, we have arrived at the opposite side of the Styx and await only a few 
more tests of valor to have Charon return to earth where they may again strive 
for recognition in the eyes of Athena.

XX 71X11 the year 1879, hard times and dark days came to the college. For several 
* ' years its current expenses had considerably exceeded its income, and it had incur- 
red a debt which grew larger and larger each year. On April 24th, the Legislature passed 
an act granting thirty-two thousand dollars to the college to pay existing debts, and at 
the same time made the trustees personally responsible for any debt thereafter incurred 
in excess of the income. Professor Stockbridge helped the college with personal loans 
and with endorsements of its notes, and Charles L. Flint, who was elected president, 
served without pay and made many gifts, particularly to the library. Thru the work of 
these two men, and the rest of the faculty, the trying situation was passed, and the college 
regained financial security. 

During this troublesome era, — perhaps because of it — the students began to offer 
criticism and suggestions concerning the management of the college. It is worthy of 
note that here, in the first student criticism, was the birth of the movement which has 
evolved into the present demand for a State College. At this time the Index was the 
only medium thru which student opinion could obtain publicity, and every issue had a 
series of editorials. It is by reading these that one gets the best perspective of the 
student mind, and of the development of many of our present day institutions. 

From the start the students wanted more "liberal courses." Originally special 
emphasis was laid only upon Agriculture, Horticulture, Veterinary Medicine, Chemistry, 
Civil Engineering and Military, but these were deemed too vocational to stand alone. 
The following quotation from the '80 Index shows the student thought on the matter. 
"The editon? would here express their regret that no more time is devoted to the study 
of the mental sciences. We most cordially indorse the words of the Professor of these 
sciences, that the supreme object of the Agricultural College is to 'make farmers, men' 
in every sense of the word." By 1881 the faculty, who were products of a classical edu- 
cation and hence in sympathy with student requests for cultural courses, had added the 
following subjects to the original curriculum; Physics; Mental, Moral and Social Science 
Modern Languages, and Bookkeeping. 

As time passed more demands for liberality were made. A cut system was requested 
and also some elective courses. An alumni letter urged an increase in the study of Art, 
Music, Political Science, English, and Modern Languages and everyone worked for an 
educational as well as a vocational college. 

Another student worry was the smallness of the classes. Lack of advertising was 
thought to be the cause of this, and for many years demands were made for more publicity. 
One of the best, and most naive of these appeared in the '81 book. "The small 
entering class ('83, with fourteen members) is due to the lack of information in regard 
to the college. We earnestly hope that the President will take means of keeping the 
institution before the public so that young men may know where to get a liberal scientific 
education, and so that any of our friends who are about to die may be reminded to leave 
us a modest bequest." 

In time, the students began to realize that more than advertising was needed to 
overcome the state-wide ignorance as to the nature of the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College. At the same time the increasing demand for liberal courses was leading to the 
general questioning as to the real purpose of the college. These two forces led to the 
same answer, a STATE COLLEGE. The students realized that publicity would never 
sincreae the enrolment as long as the word "Agricultural" obscured the real opportuni- 
ties the college offered. They also decided, after "careful investigation of the past and 
present," that "when the name M. A. C. was given, a mistake was made; and further- 
more they would add that public opinion never supplied, and never would supply enough 
encouragement to justify the continuance of a strictly agricultural college." 

The above quotation did not appear until 1890, but even as early as 1884 the idea 
of a change in name was popular. In that year, the '85 Index appeared "Published by 
the Junior Class of the Massachusetts State College." Every reference throughout was 
to M. S. C, and in a report of the progress of the college, it expressed the following opin- 
ion: "The original purpose of the college was to teach those branches which relate to 
the agricultural and mechanic arts. But the idea has expanded, and now the curriculum 
is one of the most liberal. So that, altho a man may be a farmer or a mechanic, he shall 
stand on the same basis with the professional man as regard intellectual training." 


jaotesi Jfrom tfte Clasig of 1901 

IN so far as we know at the present writing the ranks of the Class of 1901 as 
graduated nearly thirty years ago contains but one vacant place. Ralph I. 
Smith is the member who has completed his work and journeyed on. 

The members of the class are following very varied occupations and are scat- 
tered from the Atlantic to the Pacific and as far south as South America. Among 
our numbers we can boast of experts in Agricultural vocations, professors, engi- 
neers, professional men, leaders in the business world and some who have attained 
heights in political circles. 

While in College the Class of 1901 was defeated a few times in athletic 
events but it was never "licked." Each individual member has carried this spirit 
out into the world with him and without exception each one has made good in 
his chosen line. 

At our twenty-fifth anniversary over sixty percent of the fellows were back 
and we had a reunion long to be remembered. At each reunion a larger per- 
centage return and the thirtieth year of our graduation promises to be the best 

Our four years in college were history making years for during that time we 
held Amherst to a tie score in football one fall and the next year handed them a 
defeat. During that time also there was much discussion relative to changing 
the name of the College and the Class of 1901 was severely censured for inscribing 
the letters M. S. C. in a certain conspicuous place. We were obliged to remove 
the S. at considerable expense to our lean treasury. 

We are all pulling for our Alma Mater and are much gratified to see it growing 
and taking the important place it should with the other Massachusetts institu- 
tions of learning. 

J. H. Chickering, Sec, Class 1901 


'''mt warn meep sm imai) Sou 

»f)o Hit ^gleep" 

THE war exerted little influence on the enrollment at M. A. C. until January, 
1918. At that time some thirty-five undergraduates left college to become 
members of the Third Officers' Training Cani]) which was also attended by about 
the same number of alumni. Most of these men were sent directly overseas upon 
the completion of their three month's course and received their commissions after 
having seen actual fighting. During the Spring term of 1918 men were contin- 
ually leaving college to join some branch of the service. Then two weeks after 
college closed on the 18th of May, the Fourth Officers' Training Camp began at 
Devens. We were represented there by more than twenty men, mostly from the 
classes of 1918 and 1919. 

Every college or university feels that its war record is the best in the land, 
but it may be fairly challenged whether any college in the country has, on the 
whole, a better record than the Massachusetts Agricultural College, — a total of 
1,304 students, former students, and faculty in the war service; 440 Commis- 
sioned officers; 454 overseas; and 51 deaths. — Massachusetts men have the rep- 
utation of being hard fighters and our men upheld their reputation in battle for 
M. A. C. men participated in every major action on the Western Front. Many 
received citations for bravery in battle and some have received two war crosses. 
Because these men went into the war with such zeal and fought so desperately, 
it was preordained that a large number would have to pay the supreme sacrifice. 

It is but fitting and proper that some memorial should be erected to com- 
memorate our honored dead. The Memorial Building is our best effort, pos- 
sessing as it does both virtues of being a monument to our heroes and at the same 
time useful to the living generation. The world must advance; but in the onward 
development we should find time to honor those who have sacrificed themselves 
in the process of world progress.

Senate ftisitorp 

A AVAR RANT was handed to Joe Frosli by the sophomore sergeant-at-arnis 

as he was bhthely hopping "nines" under tlie close supervision of several of 
his superiors. Promptly at 7.30 P. M. Joe was at the "M" Building wearing his 
oldest clothes for although he had been told that pond-parties and paddling were 
extinct he was taking no chances. Two hours later (time is merely relative) it 
was 8.00 and no Senate Members had appeared. About half a day later they 
began to straggle in and the case of Joe Frosh was called. It does not matter 
what the punishment of Joe Frosh was but one may be sure that, if he had any 
intelligence at all, he left the Chamber with a respect for the power and the 
ability of the Senate. What he did not realize was that the prestige of the Senate 
was based upon thirty years of more or less wise rulings and meting out of 

We find that in "94's Index a small editorial appears which inquires petu- 
lantly, "Why can not we have a Senate at M. A. C?" We can surmise that their 
desire was keen for they were even willing to let a member of the Faculty be the 
president of the Senate. Other than this nothing more is heard about the Senate 
until October 4, 1899. Then in a column on "Aggie Life" conducted by the 
"Idler," we find the following paragraph concerning the Senate and the esteem 
in which it was to be held. 

"This institution will continue to be the ruling power, more to l)e feared 
than the secret Senate of Venice, more to be respected than the venerable Senate 
of the Roman people. The 'Idler' extends caution to those who would tamper 
with the chained dog." 

Then again we have a few years of silence until '02 makes the first mention 
of a Senate in an Index. The Senate then consisted of eight members and its 
president was C. E. Gordon '01, the present Head of the Department of Science. 

Two years ago the Senate was given very comprehensive powers by popular 
vote of the assemblied student body. These new powers allow the Senate to place 
offenders on probation and to prohibit their participation in any extra-curricular 
activities. It is to the credit of the present Senate that they have not openly 
flaunted their powers to show the power of their position but have used their new 
weapons judiciously. 

The present Senate consists of seven Seniors and four Juniors elected yearly 
by the student body. These men bear the responsibility of maintaining college 
traditions and customs and also referee all Freshman and Sophomore contests.

TF you are as incredulous as the ideal student should be you may not believe at 
■*■ first that the grand-parent of Adelphia was banished from this campus. Yet 
of course, since you are also open minded and tolerant, you will permit us to say 
our little piece before you reach your final conclusions. Contrary to the usual 
custom, Adelphia had only one grand-parent, Theta Nu Epsilon. 

For many years a sub rosa chapter of T N E existed at M. A. C. It prospered 
mightily and as it grew older it threw off the mantle of secrecy and openly pro- 
claimed itself as the Eta Eta chapter of Theta Nu Epsilon, and initiated many 
new members including some of the Faculty. Not for long was it to display its 
newly acquired position, for the national chapter was soon to be condemned by 
the National Interfraternity Conference for taking too active and too under- 
handed a part in college politics as well as for other nefarious practices. Our local 
chapter, although perfectly innocent, shared the stigma of the national society 
and because of Faculty opposition was forced to disband. 

However the very next year — 1913 — two Senior honorary societies appeared 
on campus. One was Thecedes which was composed of most of the former 
members of T. N. E. The other was Karatid, among whose members was Harold 
M. (Kid) Gore who can testify that the society never had to be reprimanded. 
Their main aims were recognition of leadership and the advancement of M. A. C. 
in all branches of college life and work. 

Two honor societies proved too much for one small college so in 1915 the 
present honorary society Adelphia was formed by a merger of Thecedes and Kar- 
atid. Its aims are to promote the highest type of friendship and to aid in the 
betterment of our college. Membership is an honor for it carries with it a high 
measure of responsibility and it is to Adelphia that we owe many of the improve- 
ments in student relations. 

Adelphia holds several Open Forums each year where it presents such topics 
as it believes need consideration. The students have the privilege of stating 
their views, but the few who do speak seem to think that they have spoken suc- 
cessufuUy if people laugh at their attempted humor. In spite of the lack of re- 
sponse from the Student Body, Adelphia has accomplished several things in the 
past year. The agitation for changing the name of the college was launched on a 
successful campaign; the student body was taxed to provide warm winter wear 
for the Band; library hours on Sunday were changed from morning to afternoon; 
action has been taken concerning the constant stealing of books from the library; 
and, a lot of talk was expended on the subject of a college mascot, but as yet 
nothing has been done about this problem.

' I "*HIS body was organized in 1919 under the name of the Women's Student 
■*- Council, for the purpose of controling all affairs pertaining to the conduct of 
women students. 

The council was formed only when the Senate found itself incapable of legis- 
lating wisely for the co-eds, although the truth of the matter is that the co-eds 
discovered it first. Not only was the Senate unable to legislate for the Women 
Students, but it was also unable to punish women for infractions of the rules as 
their sole method of enforcing laws was through pond parties, and the co-eds 
objected to a public bath. (Only a woman can rule a woman effectively anyway. 
And who but a woman can elect the "Custodian of China" and decide whether or 
not three "dates" a week are enough, or too many?) 

The W. S. G. A. has instuted the rites and customs to be observed by all 
co-eds, but it is not to blame for the weird color combinations to be seen adorning 
lower appendages of the freshmen girls. The Sophomores see to that. 

At present the W. S. G. A. stands equal in importance with the Senate, and 
election to it requires the same judgment, leadership and ability, as does mem- 
bership in the latter body, and with the increasing number of co-eds, it becomes 
more important in student life each year. 

^f)e ^onor Council 

'HpHE old empirical statement ("Whitey's" bugbear) that "There is nothing 
-*- new except what is forgotten," seems to hold true whenever attempts are 
made to discuss the history of anything at the Massachusetts Agricultural College. 
A few years ago the Class of '21 was given the credit of introducing the Honor 
System in its Freshman year. Now here is where the chroniclers of the recorded 
facts made their mistake. The Class of '21 did not introduce the Honor System 
at M. A. C, they reintroduced it. In so far as we were able to discover the system 
was introduced by the Class of '99 with a constitution very similar to the consti- 
tution now in use. How and why the Honor System fell into disuse we do not 
know but we surmise that it was forgotten during the AVorld War. 

Great credit should be given to '21 for their persistent effort in running the 
Honor System as many attempts were made to discourage them and it was due to 
the protracted efforts that they succeeded. At the present time the System is 
again on a firm basis and apparently functioning at its best although the students 
do not seem to believe that misappropriating books from the Library is as wrong 
as cheating in an examination.

Mnibersiitp of Jlasigacftugetts; Club 


The University of Massachusetts Club was organized in September, 1929, by 
a group of alumni of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. It has branch chap- 
ters in Boston, New York City, Ithaca, N. Y., Stamford, Conn., and an Under- 
graduate chapter at Amherst. 


The Club feels that the name of the Massachusetts Agricultural College 
should be changed by action of the Legislature and Trustees, to the "University 
of Massachusetts" and is organized solely for that purpose. 


1. The population of the state is not predominantly rural or agricultural 
and the state college, therefore, should carry on its work under a more meaningful 
name than at present. This name is undesirable in our estimation, not alone 
because it is not indicative of the major cultural, economic, and technical needs 
of the states but for other definite reasons: 

2. Prospective students who are desirous of pursuing courses in chemistry, 
economics, education, and other subjects which are, and have been, offered at 
M. A. C, are in doubt as to their ability to secure such training due to the 
common expression particularly in the eastern part of the state that M. A. C. is 
a "farm school". 

3. Graduates seeking opportunities in fields other than pure agriculture 
are handicapped because of the inability of the prospective employer to reconcile 
journalism, business, etc., with the training of an agricultural college. This 
psychological impediment is solely the result of an unnecessary misnomer. 

Bequests, collections, libraries, etc., rarely find their way to M. A. C. because 
of the confusion as to the character and scope of the institution. 

An injustice is being done to the taxpayers of the state who contribute to the 
support of the institution and yet are not aware of the real opportunities offered 
by M. A. C. to their sons and daughters. 

4. Enrolment of Massachusetts men, socially and culturally desirable is 
increasing at other New England State colleges often to the point of limitation 
(as at the University of New Hampshire) and showing no healthy increase at 
M. A. C. The enrolment of women at M. A. C. on the other hand, has increased 
626% in ten years. 

It is not the desire of the Club to urge any cessation of the work now being 
carried on in agricultural extension or experiment station work. This could be 
carried on, even more efficiently, by a College of Agriculture within a University. 
The University of Massachusetts Club is anxious to enroll all alumni who are 
convinced of the necessity for a change in the present name of the Massachusetts 
Agricultural College.

'TpHE twenty-fifth class, that of "96, enrolled in 1892. By this tinse the college had 
grown considerably and had an enrollment of 190 students. It had passed thru its 
experimental stage, and the "dark days," and was now beginning to prosper and, as one 
editor expressed it, the "Golden Age was at hand." The curriculum offered Agriculture, 
Botany, Zoology, Veterinary Science, Mathematics, English, Modern Language, Politi- 
cal Science, and Military; the library contained 12,000 volumes, and the pond had just 
been built. The following year other important changes were made. The entrance 
requirements were made greater, Senior subjects were made elective, 85% was made the 
exemption mark from all "finals," and Botany was broken up into Botany proper. Horti- 
culture, Floriculture, and Forestry. 

It was also a "Golden Age" for student influence. The "Aggie Life," the college 
newspaper, had come into existence and helped the Index in bringing student opinion 
before the public. Fired by their success in getting Senior electives, the students now 
asked for Junior electives, "to save wasted time on courses." They also requested a 
student Senate and more college publicity, — the latter to be obtained by changing the 
name. Every article reminded the public that "the object of this college is to give a 
good general education that will be a foundation for any kind of business." 

This force moved swiftly the next few years. In 1896, editorials demanded the 
change of the name of the college because only one third of the class "majored" in agricul- 
ture. The best of these concluded as follows: 

"Is it one of our American doctrines that one third of the constituency of 

an institution should give it its name while two thirds stand passively by and 

have no voice whatever? 

Why not then, name this the Massachusetts State College, extending the 

curriculum on broader lines, providing agriculture but as an elective, and this 

opening the way for a 'boom' at 'Aggie'? 

You say this is taking away a right from the farmers of Massachusetts. 

We say the farmers have had forty-six years enjoyment of a good, big right, 

and no doubt it will be a thousand and forty years before they know they have 

lost it." 

In 1899 the college athletic awards were changed from the letters "M. A. C." to 
the present "M.", because it was more dignified and would not be mistaken for some 
"athletic club." The use of "Massachusetts" in the cheers was also requested because 
there seemed to be no need to advertise the courses of study in the cheers. ... in 1900 
the entrance requirements were changed to include more English; German was made a 
Sophomore subject, and French was made a Junior elective. The long asked for 10% 
cut system was also inaugurated. In 1901 the student body voted to eliminate the word 
"Aggie," which "caused so much grumbling," from all college publications. As a result, 
the "Aggie Life" became "The College Signal." The '03 Index published this same 
year, had a long editorial headed "The Massachusetts State College" which contained 
a letter from Senator Gardiner in which he said, "I could learn of no cause for the reluct- 
ance to abandon the present name beyond the natural conservativeness which exists 
among your alumni and faculty." In 1903 a fiery editorial asked for some universal 
name that would do away with the multitude of names the reporters of the state delighted 
in using for M. A. C. By 1905 the students had made a survey of possible jobs open to 
non-agricultural graduates of an Agricultural college. Then, when events seemed about 
to culminate in an action of the Legislature, President Goodell died, and was succeeded 
in 1906, by Kenyon L. Butterfield.

\^7^HEN an old grad of the Class of 1911 looks back on Old Aggie, the picture he sees is 
' ' different from the one that the old grad of the Class of 1931 will get when he looks back 
twenty years from now. 

He sees "Daddy" Mills retiring after his years as Dean, Professor Goessmann, Father of 
Agricultural Chemistry in America, celebrating his 80th birthday and his 40th year as a "Massa- 
chusetts" man, and Prexy Butterfield just starting his second year. He sees "Billy", "Doc" 
Paige, Captain "Blokey" Martin, "Bill" Hart, Peter Hickey Holcomb, and "Tab" Wellington, and 
a lump rises in his throat at the thought that they are gone. He sees Gordon and Osmun just hit- 
ting their .stride after a year or two on the faculty and "Doc" Chamberlain beginning the years of 
service and devotion to Aggie that he hopes will go on for many years to come. "Sid" Haskell, 
"Doc" Stone, "Billy" O.strander, "Squirt" Neale and Gribben also come to mind. 

When he glances north of the Ravine, famous for its famous Lion, instead of the many splendid 
buildings now located there, he sees only the Hash House and, of course, the Experiment Stations 
East and West with their barn. He sees the "Old Bug Lab," still doing yeoman service, helps 
christen Clark Hall, and again watches the construction of the wing of French Hall. While 
he is still looking at things "On the Hill," his vision will be poor indeed if it fails to bring back the 
vineyard and orchard on a Fall evening with a foraging party and its rich reward of lusciousness. 
He shudders a bit at the two eyesores, the "Old Chem Lab" and the Drill Hall. One of these, 
putting across a stupendous chemical reaction as a farewell gesture, has been replaced by the fine 
new Goessmann Laboratory. The other eyesore never burned down, but, thank Heaven, the new 
Physical Education Building is definitely on the way. 

In sports and other non-academic activities are events to catch his reminiscent eye. He sees 
again the no-score football game with Amherst, bitterly fought that November afternoon of 1 07, 
in the mud that was the old Pratt Field after two or three days of soaking rain. Sixteen long years 
passed before there was another meeting of these two on the gridiron, and by that time much of the 
old bitterness had died out, fortunately. He sees the first Aggie Indoor Realy Team covering it- 
self with glory at the B. A. A. meet in Boston and the first of the long string of Hockey Teams taat 
have made Aggie a much respected foe on the ice. Intercollegiate Rifle Shooting, with Indoor and 
Outdoor Teams winners of their respective Intercollegiate Championships, the first three years of 
M. A. C. Tennis Teams, the organization of the Dramatic Society later to become the Roister 
Doisters, the .start of the Fraternity Conference, and the first Stock Judging and Apple Judging 
teams are part of the view that the 1911 man sees in Memory. 

In detail, the picture is different decade after decade, but back of it all and woven through it 
is the Old Aggie Spirit and Fight that changes not nor dies.

DURING the Fall Term of 1928 a small group of students on this campus became enthusiastic 
over an idea that has existed since 1898, namely to change the name of the Massachusetts 
Agricultural College to Massachusetts State College. The idea was presented to the student body 
through a publication called "The Mass Action." During the Christmas vacation that same term 
a group of students representing the student body presented a petition signed by about 90% of 
the four year course to the Governor of the State, who, however, declined to accept it as he was 
going out of office very soon. The petition did go to the Board of Trustees who again declined 
to act upon it; — instead the Honorable Board decided to wait until the Land Grant College Sur- 
vey was published some time in 1930. During the meeting with the Trustees the statement that 
such a movement as one to change the name of the college amounted to nothin but a display 
of student sentiment that has arisen and fallen every few years greatly surprised the committee 
representing the students. So with this statement in mind the group decided to form a permanent 
committee approved by the Senate and the Adelphia whose main purpose was to carry on work of 
agitation in regard to changing the name of the college until some definite decision had been reached. 
The committee was to include seven members — four seniors and three juniors. The committee 
was formed and received the approval of both the Senate and Adelphia and called itself "The 
Agitation Committee." 

The members were L. S. Ronka, Chairman, William Bosworth, Secretary, Louis Lynds, Henry 
W. .Tenson, Herbert Allen, Frederick Troy, and Paul Smith. 

The committee immediately proposed certain actions, such as eliminating the word "Aggie" 
whenever possible, revising the songs, and obtaining as much publicity as possible for the college. 
The student body co-operated and the movement became a vital force upon the campus. 

Enthusiasm in the student body decreased somewhat during the Spring of '29 and the com- 
mittee wondered if the idea expressed in the Trustee Meeting was to become a reality, but during 
the Fall of '29 the student body again became enthusiastic about the idea and the committee again 
began to work with increased vigor. In the meantime however, the Secretary of the Committee 
for reasons known only to himself offered his resignation which was accepted. H. Daniel Darling 
'.SI was elected to fill his place and no more enthusiastic worker can be found. "Dan" was elected 
as secretary. During this term the committee met once with the President of the college. Mat- 
ters of intense interest were discussed amongst them the listing of the students with different 
majors on this campus. The question was asked of the President as to how the students had been 
listed in the report to Washington. He had nothing definite to say in regard to this issue so the 
committee wrote to Washington for information. The answer was a surprise — for all of the 
students in the college had always been listed under one major, namely — Agriculture. An explan- 
ation was in order and was requested through The. Collegian. The President however did not deem 
it necessary to answer this request, but did admit that the lists had always made out as having 
students in only one major — agriculture — and that there had been no other majors on this campus 

In the meantime Professor Hicks had been working on the Phys. Ed. Building Campaign. 
The committee decided to drop everything for the time being and to assist Professor Hicks as far 
as possible. After the Prof.'s successful campaign was finished, the committee again decided to 
attract as much attention to the college as possible. But the Alumnae now showed a keen interest 
in the issue and had formed four chapters of the L'niversity of Massachusetts Club, the purpose 
of which is to form a University of Massachusetts with the Massachusetts Agricultural College as 
a nucleus. This announcement on the part of the Alumnae came as a glad surprise to the Agi- 
tation Committee and they petitioned for an Undergraduate Chapter here on this campus. The 
petition was accepted and the Agitation Committee dissolved and became the LIndergraduate 
Chapter of the University of Massachusetts Club. The following officers were elected: — 
President — L. S. Ronka 
Secretary — Daniel Darling 
Publicity — Louis Lynds, Herbert Allen 

The other members of the committee are Henry W. .lansen, Frederick Troy, and Paul Smith.

^ijpgical Cbucation 

T N the Spring of 1928 the hopes of many 
years began to be more than a dream, 
and with the hiunching of the drive for 
funds, the New Physical Education 
Building began to be a reality. 

The colossal task of raising the 
necessary $350,000 by subscriptions from 
friends, alumni, and undergraduates of 
the college was undertaken. The first 
few months saw a total of $40,000 con- 
tributed, but from then on the income fell 
off to some extent and a year and a half 
later found the total fund at $70,000. 
It was at this point that the tide began 
to turn and due to the excellent work of 
Prof. Hicks the State agreed to share 
the expenses on a 60-40% basis. There 
were but three months left before the end of the year and some $75,000 was needed 
to insure the success of the building. This campus is surrounded by history and 
tradition of the highest type but there are very few events that can equal the 
splendid way in which the Alumni and undergraduates met the challenge. It 
was a time to test the loyalty of every "Son of Massachusetts" and from the ven- 
erable classes of the 70's through the lads of '33 the stalwart sons of the Old 
Bay State remained true. The climax was reached in that memorable assembly 
when President Thatcher announced the successful culmination of our effort. 

The drive was headed by one who was familiar with both the Alumni and the 
undergraduates. A man of unfailing optomism and high courage. One who 
faced the difficulties of the undertaking and carried the conquest to victory. 
When the last stone is laid and the work finished on the New Physical Education 
Buildings, it will stand as a fitting memorial to the unselfish and whole hearted 
efforts of one of our finest— Prof. CURRY S. HICKS.

THERE seem to have been various activities in track and field sports ever 
since the first classes entered college. The first few Indexes make no 
references to track as a sport but, since running was considered part of the train- 
ing for the football team and many of the other members of the college ran with 
the team either for encouragement or their own personal exercise, we may con- 
sider that track activities, at least in this form, were known in the earliest days 
of the college. 

In the Indexes published by the classes of '77 and '78 we find reference to the 
first and second annual Field Day. These Field Days were held under the aus- 
pices of the Athletic Association which was probably the offspring of an earlier 
Gymnastic Association of whose activities we have no record. Every one in the 
college belonged in the Athletic Association and was eligible to compete in the 
various events. It is interesting to note that the program contained several 
events not common to track meets at the present time. The event which sounds 
most interesting and exciting was the wheelbarrow race (blindfolded) altho the 
"sack" and "three legged" races were not without their thrills. Instead of the 
present day shot of 14 pounds these early participants put a 20 pound weight 
and the hammer throw used an 18 pound shot instead of today's 16. There were 
also baseball throws both for distance and for accuracy. 

From the second Field Day in 1876 we have no further mention of the 
Athletic Association or its activities until 1890 when '91's Index gives a list of its 
officers. The next mention of a Field Day comes in '93's Index when we get the 
interesting information that all previous college records were broken, but no 
actual record of events is given. 

From this time until about 1908, track enjoyed ranging successes. Some 
years it was very successful and in other years it was dropped because of scarcity 
of funds or lack of interest. In 1894 the students held what was claimed to be the 
first Field Day in the history of the college. Altho they were wrong in their 
numerical designation, they did have the most ambitious program so far at- 
tempted. The Athletic Association had been revived and when interest was felt 
to be high enough the program for a field day was conceived and to the winning 
class was given a banner as a prize. This program was really divided into two 
parts for the class that won the honor had to make the highest score in both the 
indoor meet held in the Drill Hall in the winter, and in the outdoor meet which 
was held at Hampshire Park. There were no recitations on the day of the meet 

IB 3i 



and the classes attended en masse to see '94 win the banner and the athletic 
championship of the college. For the next few years track flourished, but only 
as an intramural sport. In '94 the Index says, "The field day of the spring has 
become one of the events in our college life." In '95, weekly athletic meets were 
held in the gym in the winter, and the next year two meets were held in the gym, 
and one outside in the spring, the banner being won by the class of '95. From 
this time until 1900, track was inactive because sufficient money could not be 
raised to support both a baseball and a track team. 

In 1900 we find the first Index record of an outside track meet, if we except 
those individuals who sometimes competed in bicycle and foot races with outside 
teams. This meet was a dual meet with Williston which we won by a score of 
88-47. 1900 also marked the first year in which "M's" were awarded to men par- 
ticipating in track or other sports. Previous to this unwritten laws had governed 
the wearing of insignia and letters. Under the new system a council made the 
awards on the basis of a man's fulfillment of certain qualifications which varied 
to suit the sport. Track captains, managers, and all others who won at least 
three points in a dual meet, were entitled to wear an "M". We believe that E. B. 
Saunders and L. C. Claflin, both of the class of '02, were the first to be awarded 
letters in track. From 1900 until the class of '08 entered M. A. C. there were no 
track activities mainly because there were insufficient funds to support both a 
baseball and a track team. The class of '08, in its freshman year, organized a 
track team, elected a captain and manager and took steps to arrange a meet with 
the Amherst freshmen. Their plan was not successful because certain upper- 
classmen chose to recall an old feud with the Amherst students and so prevented 
the meet. In 1909 the first physical director of M.A.C. was appointed. Dr. 
Percy L. Reynolds who greatly stimulated the interest in track and other sports. 
It was under his influence that cross-country running was taken up by the stu- 
dents. The season of 1911 was the first really successful one in the history of 
track at M.A.C. The team defeated Rhode Island State and W. P. I. The 
next season outdoor track was reintroduced, and cross-country was adopted by 
M.A.C. as an inter-collegiate sport. This (1912) was also the year when two 
M.A.C. men qualified for the Olympics. These men were Bruce Caldwell, and 
"Dan" Young. Since this time track has always had varsity recognition and every 
few years the existing records are broken. Track is now a popular sport altho it 
does not attract the crowds that other athletics do.

'HpHE season opened with a meet with Amherst on Pratt Field, April 27, the 
-■- Massachusetts team losing 110-25. Bartsch, Coukos, and Magnuson won 
fii'sts for the Bay Staters. The next meet was with Trinity on Alumni Field on 
May 4, resulting in a winning score of 64-62 for the Massachusetts team. First 
place honors went to Kay, Snell, Captain Webber, "Hal" White, Coukos, and 
Bartsch. The next event was a mid-week meet with the University of Vermont 
on Alumni Field, the visitors winning by a narrow margin, 72-63. Home team 
first places were won by Little, Snell, Herman, Davis, Bartsch, and Captain 
Webber. The last dual meet was on May 11 with Worcester Tech at Worcester 
where the Maroon and White lost 89-45. Snell, "Hal" White, Magnuson, and 
Bartsch won first places for Massachusetts. 

The season saw the breaking of three Massachusetts records. Bartsch '31 
threw the javelin 154 feet 7 inches; Coukos '29 heaved the shot 37 feet 7 inches; 
Magnuson '30 sent the hammer 113 feet 9 inches. 

During the season the Maroon and White gathered 198 points to the op- 
ponents' 330. Of the Massachusetts points, 87 were gained in runs, and 111 in 
field events.

TN spite of a number of serious injuries 
-'-which seriously handicapped what appeared 
to be an unusual cross country team, the 
varsity cross country team turned in a suc- 
cessful season. The harriers scored victories 
over Wesleyan, Boston University, and St. 
Stephens. Both the meet with Worcester 
Tech and the meet with Amherst were lost by 
very close scores. 

The first race on the schedule was run 
against Wesleyan on the Middletown course. 
There Captain White's team nearly made a 
perfect score against their opponents. Only 
one Wesleyan man finished before the Massa- 
chusetts team crossed the finish line. In 
this case. Gross of Wesleyan managed to get 
fifth place. Crawford and McGuckian were 
tied for first and second places while Captain 

White and Hernan were tied for third and fourth. West was the fifth State 
man to finish. 

The following week, the team made a trip to Worcester where they lost a meet 
to Worcester Tech by the close score of 24 to 31. Crawford made a fair bid for 
first place but was nosed out by a last minute spurt by Pierce of Worcester. 

The next meet was a triangular one between x\.mherst and St. Stephens on 
the Amherst course. The race took place between the halves of the Massa- 
chusetts-Amherst football game. Amherst won the meet with a score of 23. 
Massachusetts was second with 38, and St. Stephens last with 66. Crawford was 
just two seconds behind the winning Amherst harrier. 

The only meet run on the home course was the last one and the opponents 
were from Boston University. The race was very close and only teamwork on 
the part of the Bay State runners made a victory possible. The final result was 
26 to 29. Crawford again finished first and just missed equalling the Massachu- 
setts course record by 33^ seconds. 

The varsity cross country team entered the New England Intercollegiates 
but did not have as much success. Injuries prevented the club from asserting 
its full strength. Crawford finished in 22nd place among 72 runners and the team 
placed tenth in the meet. 







T3EF0RE the 20th century broke over us, bringing with it science and luxury 
-^-^ and robbing us of physical vigor and mental quietude, our incipient baseball 
squad did many wondrous things. In those good days of yore, farm work, (at 
ten cents an hour) was compulsory. No wonder that one old timer casually 
tells of running down to the river, rowing six miles and then running back to play 
baseball with Amherst and beating them 33-32. That was in 1875. But to begin 
at the beginning: 

The first team was organized in '68, the spring following the entrance of the 
pioneer class. Due to the untiring energy of Lewis A. Nichols '71 who organized 
the team and to the generosity of Honorable Marshall P. Wilder who financed it 
and gave it its name, the team immediately began to win games under the title 
of the "Wilder Nine." For a long while, lack of transportation limited the com- 
petitors to Williston Academy, Amherst High, Springfield Baseball Club, and the 
town teams of Belchertown and Granby . However, those early years were hard ones. 

Equipment was lacking; competitors were hard to find and interest lagged 
so that Nichols had a hard time finding nine men for the "Wilder Nine," The 
class of 1873 produced only one candidate. It was 1877 before the team had uni- 
forms or protectors. Before then the catcher played without a glove or 
mask and sustained full many a broken nose or finger. He usually stood well 
back from the plate, catching the ball on the first bound. When, in a tight play, 
he stood directly behind the batter he was flirting with death. In order to make 
the game interesting the batter was allowed nine balls. The ball itself was larger, 
softer, and heavier than the one used at present. It was usually in the outfield, 
as home runs were common with the pitchers using a straight, underhand, tossing 
motion of delivery. Perhaps the greatest of them all was "Bill" Nye '76 who 
could throw 350 feet. 

In 1887 uniforms and gloves were bought and the name changed to the 
"Aggie Nine". These first uniforms had the letters M.A.C. across the front and 
were laced up at the neck. The class of '99 produced the Spartan, Cooley, who 
caught five innings after he had had five teeth knocked out. This same Cooley 
figured in a unique umpire's decision in an earlier game. He was playing outfield, 
and while running after a fly his belt became loosened and slipped, and the de- 
scending ball, missing his glove, bounced off his stomach and went down his 
pants. Was the batter out or not? The "ump" said "yes", and "yes" it was. 

With the advent of the new century better transportation widened the field 
of competition until it included, Maine State College, Williston, Trinity, Vermont 
Academy, Mt. Hermon, Bates, and Colby. Now the sport flourished as never 
before. Then came the war. The players answered the call of their country 
to play the greatest game and baseball languished and died. In 1920, the Physi- 
cal Education Department revived the dead game and inadvertently saved from 
extinction one of the oldest sports on campus. Since than it has prospered and 
produced good teams.

1929 ^easion 

THE Bay State team had a rather poor season last year only winning three out 
of their fourteen encounters. In the opening game, the varsity team was 
defeated by the Clark University team, by a score of 7 to 5. Springfield College 
next took the Aggie ball-tossers by a six run margin. The loss of this game was 
due largely to the pitching of Lipp of the Springfield team. The score of this 
game was 10 to 4. 

A few days later the town rivals had their first tilt. The Bay State men 
played a fair game, but they were out-hit by the Sabrinas. The book at the end 
of this first town game read Amherst 7, Massachusetts State 3. 

Each of the next two games were lost by a single run. Lowell Textile and 
Williams were our opponents. The scores were 8 to 7, and 9 to 8 respectively. 

Our next game came on High School Day. Much to our delight and the delight 
of our visitors, we won this game by a score of 2 to 1. Wherity, the Bay State 
pitcher, and Richardson, the twirler for Northeastern, each allowed only three hits. 

We next suffered defeat at the hnnds of Wesleyan. The Agates had a good 
chance of winning the game until the last of the seventh inning. In the eighth 
inning, however, something broke, and Wesleyan pulled through with a score of 7-4. 

In an extremely wet game played on the Varsity Field a few days later, the 
Massachusetts nine, playing against the University of New Hampshire, managed 
to pull through with a score of 4 to 3. 

Trinity surprised everyone by coming out on the large end of a 5 to 1 score. 
This defeat was largely due to the pitching of Adams of the Hartford team. He 
struck out eleven men and allowed only five hits. 

Our old rivals. Tufts, next defeated us to the tune of 11 to 2. The Bay 
Staters did well for six innings, but from then on they fell down badly and Tufts 
easily won the game. 

On the trip to Vermont, the Bay State team lost both games. Middlebury 
came out ahead in a game that could be well characterized as a pitchers' battle. 
A home run by Sorenson in the fourth inning was the run that decided the contest, 
the score of which was 3 to 2. The following day, the University of Vermont 
took Massachusetts by a 10 to 1 score. 

Coach Ball's team then journeyed to Worcester to play the game that had 
previously been postponed on account of rain. The score at the end of the ninth 
showed that the Bay State team had won by one run. The score was 6 to 5. 

In the second town tilt, Amherst pulled out on top by a score of 5 to 4. 
This game should have gone to Massachusetts as the team played well, making 
only one error as compared to five by the Sabrinas. 

The season on the whole was not very successful, but we are hoping for a 
better one this year, although the prospects, as far as pitchers go, are not bright.

FOOTBALL— the king of sports— has ruled on this 
campus ever since 1878. Francis Codman ex '80 and 
J. J. Delano ex '82 were the principals in organizing the 
first team for they were the only ones in college who 
had played the game before coming to M. A. C. In the 
early days of football history the team consisted of fif- 
teen members; eight forwards, four half backs, three 

backs; and a man could toss the ball to a teammate 

after being tackled. The ball was downed only when the ball carrier cried "Held" 
or "Down". We won the first football game ever played by an M. A. C. team. 
This was in 1879 when the Amherst freshmen were defeated one touchdown to 
nothing. The next year the number of players was reduced to eleven, possibly 
because other teams thought that eleven corn-fed huskies could not possibly be as 
hard to play against as fifteen. In 1880 the players were known as rushers, 
half tends and tends. 1880 also marked the first time that a Bay State eleven ever 
appeared in a uniform. This uniform represented satorial perfection in football 
equipment in the '80s. It consisted of a white canvas jacket with sleeves, white 
canvas pants, maroon stockings, and a maroon and white stocking cap. In those 
days a touchdown counted two, a goal four, and a safety two for the opponents. 
Training was rather strenuous — there was a daily practice and then about ten at 
night the entire squad had to take a run of about a mile along the col'ege drives. 
The players were cautioned against eating 'pickles and ice dream and like dainties' 
before a game so that they would not need to be dragged off the field in the 
middle of the battle suffering with a stomach ache. 

Instead of giving a detailed resume of football year by year until the present 
time we will mention instead a few of the most outstanding teams. "The first 
team to play football 'to any extent' was 1881." The team record was. Won 2, 
Lost 1, Tied 1. This team played the first football game with a college in our 
history. The game resulted in a tie. The next outstanding team was that of 
1885 which beat Amherst twice in the same season. The season of '92 produced 
the highest scoring team in our history. This team scored 200 points in one 
season. The last two outstanding teams have been those of 1922 and 1924. 
The '27 outfit won five out of eight games and also played the first intersectional 
game in our history although we lost by a very one-sided score. The team in 
1924 won six, tied Tufts 7-7 and lost one, scoring 184 points to its opponents 61. 

We could, of course, tell you all about every season but "Kid" Gore is working 
on a History of Football at M. A. C. and we do not want to steal the glory; 
anyway, the team does enough each fall to make further history unnecessary. 


^easion 1929 

THE season of 1929 found the coaching 
staff, headed once again by "Chick'' 
McGeoch '25, faced with the usual handicap, 
a lack of football material. However, a small 
light, Init fif^litiiig team was soon whipped into 
sliaiie. 'I'lic team, captained by Ray Mann 
";50, opened the season in fine shape by beating 
a fighting Bates team at Lewiston to the tune 
of 7-6. In the next game with Bowdoin, on 
Alumni Field, a real fighting, line-smashing 
Bay State team was beaten by the powerful 
Maine aggregation by an 18-6 score. 

The next game, with Middlebury, was 
even more closely fought, and the home team 
lost by the narrow margin of 14-12. The 
home team opened up a spurt in the last half, 
but did not have sufficient time to nose out a 
victory. The following week, the Bay Staters 
took revenge on Norwich for last year's defeat 
CAPTAIJ.-KLECT MnNKhiEiN by beating the Horscmen 12-6. 

The next week the Massachusetts gridsters journeyed to Worcester to pin a 
19-12 defeat onto the Engineers. In this game, Holmberg, Ellert, Brown, and 
Bond, the famous midget backfield men showed their wares to the crowd, and were 
the means to end in gaining the victory for old Bay State. In the annual game 
with Amherst for the mythical town title, Amherst again walked off with a 13-0 
prize, but not one easily earned. A fighting, smashing Massachusetts team 
showed its superiority again by gaining the most first downs, and playing scoreless 
game for three quarters. 

In the game with Springfield the following week, the visitors were defeated 
13-0, by a powerful, experienced Springfield aggregation. The final game of 
the season with Tufts resulted in a scoreless tie. Thus, the season ended with 
the count standing three victories, one tie, and four defeats. 





TTOCKEY as we know it today was first played 
-*- A in 1909, but before that time the students 
played at the direct ancestor of Hockey, Polo, which 
some of us may know better as "Shinny". Polo was 
played even before there was a Pond on campus, the 
players walking two miles to the nearest ice at East 
Street or North Amherst. The Pond was formed 
in 1899 and in that year we have the first men- 
tion of Polo in an Index. The early teams consisted of five men — center rush, 
first rush, second rush, half back and goal. The puck was a round ball, not the 
present thick disk. '89's Index is the last to mention the Polo Team but in 1909 
we find information concerning the first Varsity Hockey team. In the first sea- 
son of varsity Hockey four games were played and three lost, but the following 
seasons were more successful and have continued so to the present day. We do 
not like to boast but some of our Hockey teams have furnished material for the 
Olympic Teams. The Hockey Squad picked for the 1924 Olympics included 
Justin McCarthy, forward, captain of the 1921 sextet and John J. Lyons, defense, 
of the 1922 team. 

^easfon 1930 

1930 proved another banner year for the Maroon and White hockey team. 
Under Captain "Dicky" Bond, the team won seven games and lost four. Only 
one game on the schedule was cancelled, even though we did have a rather open 
winter. A group of lettermen composed of Bond, Frost, Davis, Waechter, Manty 
and Myrick, gave "Red" Ball, ample material to build a strong club. "Herb" 
Forest, brother of Captain "Joe" Forest '28, played his first year of varsity hockey 
and lead the team in scoring, though "Ed" Frost ran him a close second. 

The season opened with a 5-0 win over C. A. C. in the West Springfield Arena. 
In a fast, hard-fought game with Hamilton at Clinton, Frost, Forest and Gunness 
scored successively to put the team on the long end of a 3-2 score. This was the 
first time in over five years that an M. A. C. sextet has downed a Hamilton outfit. 

In the following encounter, Captain Lindquist of Army proved the Nemesis 
of the Massachusetts team. The game was played on the Bear Mountain Rink, 
in such a fog as to make the ends of the rink indistinguishable. Lack of practise 
and condition forced the Maroon and White to accept a 5-3 defeat. The St. 
Stephens game, scheduled to be played on the same trip, was cancelled due to 


lack of ice. In a weekend game at Providence, Brown was victorious to the tune 
of 7-0, though the game was not quite as one sided as the score seems to indicate. 

In the first campus game, Bates was defeated 2-1. "Art" Brown made his 
debut as a hockey player and proved a find for the second forward line. Captain 
Cogan of Bates deserves great credit for his fast skating and clever stickwork. 
On the Maine trip the Bay Staters scored two more wins. Davis won the first 
from New Hampshire when he got a quick one in the beginning of the first over- 
time period after New Hampshire had tied the score at one-all in the third period. 
"Norm" Myrick was the shining light in the Bates game making many spectacular 
saves. Bates was snowed under for the second time this season by a 4-3 score. 
In the next game which was played at the Boston Arena, Captain Kerins of 
Northeastern made a spectacular dash to register the only tally of the evening. 

In the game to decide the town championship, Amherst was never more com- 
pletely outclassed. "Dicky" Bond and "Herb" Forest paired up twice and "Herb" 
counted each time for the only scores of the game. Only the great work of Han- 
son, the Amherst goalie, prevented a worse defeat. After a spell of mild weather 
and a lay-off from practise, a much improved C. A. C. team was taken into camp 
by the count of 2-1. In the last game of the season at Williamstown, the superior 
team of the Royal Purple of Williams shaded the Maroon and White by a score 
of 4-2. 

Bond, Waechter and Zuger are the only members of the team to be lost by 
graduation. Davis, Manty, Myrick, and Captain-elect "Ed" Frost, have had 
two years of varsity experience, while Brown, Forest and Gunness are members 
of the present sophomore class. With these lettermen as a nucleus, the prospects 
for the 1931 season look bright.

"■HE 1930 Basketball Season was an out- standing ex- 
ample of the comeback Bay State has made in athletics. 
A season with eleven wins out of fourteen starts has been 
equalled by only 3 preceeding teams at Massachusetts. The 
Ellert coached and captained team can justly claim the 
mythical New England championship since it had the highest 
percentage of wins of any college team in New England. 

The phrase "Stars in Stripes" justly describes this outstanding court team 
but at the same time it was one of harmoniou.sly working fellows who played 
the game to the utmost because they admired their coach and captain, "Freddie" 
Ellert. It was a do or die spirit for his sake that prevailed during the season. 

Fred Ellert was a hero of this season's team. Although he was not a high 
scorer in each game, he had the ability to get the ball and hold or pass it to the 
astonishment of his opponents. If Fred could not dribble through a group of 
men he could pass the ball with bullet-like speed to place it in scoring position. 
As a sportsman and leader few Bay State men will ever equal him. 

"Basket-sinker" Stanisiewski, tall black haired center, deserves much credit 
for our wins. "Stan" shot with such ease and adeptness that one cannot find his 
equal. He was high scorer of the team and among the first ten high scorers of 
the East. One cannot predict too much of a future on the court for "Stan" in 
another season. 

"Tim" Minkstein, that left forward that fought for the ball every minute of 
every game he played, was another high scorer of the team. "Tim" had the un- 
canny ability to make "hook-shots" count just when they were needed. It was 
"Tim's" chance shot that gave us the win over Williams at Williamstown. 

"Jack" Foley and "Ray" Mann as guards played their best in preventing 
their individual opponents from scoring. No little credit for our successful season 
can be given these men who prevented such men as Symoncyk of Northeastern 
and Good of Williams from raising havoc with our score. 

"Sneaky" Davis and "Grekky" Paksarian deserve full credit for the games 
they played; each was a valuable asset at mid-season when the real battle 

Just a word about some of the games that we played. It was during the 
Connecticut game that we were out-towered by height but were not outplayed. 
The W. P. I. game was the greatest thrill of the season when the lead changed 

IS 31 

eleven times during the game, only to have our team surge ahead by six points 
in the last minute to play. The New Hampshire game which came the night 
before the W. P. I. game was also a hard game, but the boys came through with a 
nine point free margin. 

The Wesleyan game with its 26-25 score resolved itself into a fault shooting 
contest with "Jack" Foley sinking the double decker to win the game. Trinity 
and Amherst in the same week were no set ups for the team. Both teams desired 
to win but they received only the small end of the score. 

The Williams game is the outstanding example of a game where the team 
came back after almost sure defeat. Trailing by 15 points after playing seventeen 
minutes put us in a very poor situation but to forge ahead and win in 23 minutes, 
trade marks a team with nerve and "guts." 

The season ended in an unpleasant manner at Tufts. On the whole it was a 
joyful one however, and a season that everyone connected with the team put his 
heart and soul into. Led by the diminutive Coach, Captain and Herr, Fred 
EUert the team attained its name "Stars in Stripes" because they loved and 
admired Fred, the smiling, thinking, and cool headed leader.

T) ASKETBALL is the youngest sport played on campus; polo and soccer are 
less aged but they have not yet been accepted as varsity sports. Basketball 
was introduced in 1898 by the class of '01 from Springfield College where the game 
was originated by Dr. Waismith. The first inter-class contests were played the 
following winter in the Old Drill Hall (not the present one) altho "the lack of heat 
greatly cooled the ardor of the players" and the students frequently criticized the 
faculty for giving them no better a place to exercise than the old hall when the 
temperature ran "from 5 to 10 degrees below freezing." These conditions could 
not last, for the enthusiastic way in which basketball was received soon convinced 
the college authorities that better playing facilities were needed and, as a final 
result, we have our large, airy, well-equipped Drill Hall. We will soon have our 
new Physical Education Building however and then all worries about playing 
room will be over. The first varsity basketball team of intercollegiate grade was 
organized in 1902 and it "made not a bad beginning to our basketball history" by 
winning 5 out of its 8 games. For the next few years basketball had indifferent 
success until it was given up entirely between 1910-1916. In 1917, mainly thru 
the efforts of Prof. Hicks varsity basketball was reestablished and under H. M. 
Gore as coach it won 4 out of 6 games. We have had a basketball team on the 
floor every year since then with more than moderate success. Four basketball 
teams have been outstanding; The "Big '17 Team" won 4 out of 6 games; The 
1922 "All Valley 5" won 11 out of 15 games; The "Flying Agrarians" of 1929 won 
11 out of 14 and the "N. E. Champs" of 1925 also won 11 out of 14. This last 
team made the highest score of any team in our history scoring 61 points against 
Norwich. It is interesting to note that during the four seasons from 1922-25 
only one game was lost on our home floor and that only the '29 and '24 teams were 
able to beat Harvard. Interest in basketball at the present time is at a high 
pitch and any one who has tried to get a seat for an important game knows that 
student enthusiasm and support is not lacking.

^i}t M^ ^. C, 0ntm Club 

' I ^HE M. A. C. Outing Club was formed in 1926 by a group of students wlio 

knew the quiet satisfaction to be found in woods and hills. From this begin- 
ning is growing an organization which seeks to preserve and encourage this spirit 
amid the fevered rush of college life. 

At a convenient distance from the campus is the Mt. Toby Reservation, a 
broad preserve of streams and wooded hills, threaded with old trails awaiting 
re-discovery. Within ready access, too, are the Pelham Hills, the rugged Holyoke 
Range, the vantage points of Sugarloaf, Warner and Lincoln, and the everchanging, 
charming Orient. These are the true meeting places of the Outing Club. But 
also regular monthly meetings are held, when foresters, naturalists and travelers 
are called upon to speak. 

The club business is divided into several heads. The Trails Commitee 
maintains the standard trails on Toby, and, when time permits, restores a disused 
path, or scouts out some new spot of beauty. The Cabin Committee has charge 
of Camp Macoc on Toby, and each year adds something to its utility as a shelter 
for overnight hikers. The Activities Committee schedules the weekly hikes, 
arranges such special events as steak-roasts and bacon-bats, and has charge of the 
winter sleigh ride and spring sugaring-off party. Each winter, precraious weather 
conditions permitting, the club plans to run an all-college Carnival; and an annual 
banquet takes place in May. 

Within the club is the Order of the Guides, an Honorary gToup of members 
who have passed certain requirements of woodcraft, first aid, trail-knowledge, 
and active club work. The purpose of this order is to provide a nucleus for a 
stronger organization, which will develop Mt. Toby to a natural retreat of the 
finest order, and awaken the student body to the silent call of this mountain of 
beauty. KENNETH W. HUNT.

"npHE history of rowing at M. A. C. is a very brief but a very interesting and 
-*- important one. The one event of outstanding importance and absorbing 
interest was the remarkable achievement of the crew of 1871 — the first college 
crew of M. A. C. — in its magnificent victory over the crews of Harvard and 
Brown in the first intercollegiate regatta of American colleges at Ingleside on the 
Connecticut River near Springfield on July 21, 1871. This was the first and last 
victory for M. A. C, altho crews were entered the next two years. 

The crowd was impatient, hints of pink were tinging the few clouds in the 
west as a warning that the sun was ready to set, the river was still and blue mirror- 
ing the three slim shells lined up before the judges' boat. The six athletes in 
Brown's shell were stripped to the waist and their style was followed by four of the 
Harvard men, two still clinging to their shirts. "The Amhersts (M. A. C.) 
brown and brawny as Greek pirates and somewhat fantastically clad in white 
sleeveless shirts and white trousers, with Phrygian caps of the same material on 
their heads (these were white handkerchiefs with maroon borders prepared and 
presented to the crew by young lady friends of Amherst) sat motionless. Their 
weeks training had been sadly broken into, and their development somewhat 
vitiated by the air of commencement studies, but they seemed confident that their 
rivals were predestined to defeat ." At 7.04 the Judge's voice, "Are you ready?" 
Nods of assent and the starting gun is fired. Six short, fast, powerful strokes and 
the Massachusetts shell is in the lead, not to be overtaken during the race, and a 
new intercollegiate record is made. 

The best way of revealing the greatness and significance of this victory is to 
quote two extracts, one from the Springfield Republican and the other from an 
article written for the 1909 Index by Gedion H. Allen who was a member of the 
crew that won the race. 

"The crew have practised but ten days under Josh Ward, and their boating 
knowledge has been gained in an old boat, but they seemed to be possessed of a 
great deal of it. Their boat is that which the Amherst College crew had last year 
at Worcester. It is 50 feet long by 19 inches wide. Ward says that the time was 
so short that he concluded not to put the boys on severe training. So he has given 
them coarse food and plenty of advice. 'Let me have ten days longer,' says Ward, 
'and I'll make a crack crew of my boys.' 

It was considered a severe strain on the propriety of things that the crew of 
the Amherst Agricultural College should defeat both Harvard and Brown in the 
recent University race at Ingleside; but a discovery has now been made that 
renders the brilliant victory of the 'Aggies' still more extraordinary and surprising. 
They not only defeated the old University crews, but the time-keepers now show 



that they made, in so doing, the fastest time on record. There was, it seems, an 
error of just one minute in the time as announced on the day of the race, which, 
being deducted, gives the Amherst Agricultural crew the absolutely unprecedented 
time of 16 minutes, 46^/2 seconds." 

"As a result of the great victory, the college, with but four years of life as an 
active educational institution and hardly known beyond the boundaries of the 
Bay State, sprang immediately into prominence, and its name and fame were 
heralded thruout the country. The victory became the theme for the press for 
the time being far and wide, and unstinted praise and honor was bestowed upon 
the victorious crew and the college by a rejoicing public. The stimulus of the 
achievement gave new courage and energy to the officers and faculty of the college, 
and opened the way for the broadened scope, the higher reputation, and the 
fuller patronage of the institution, insuring the successful career which followed. 
It marked the coming out, the debut, of the college into the open arena of educa- 
tional life and effort, giving it a place and standing among the colleges of the 
countrv .'ind finallv the world at large."

IN years gone by, Massachusetts has always had a Men's Glee Club and a 
Girl's Glee Club, but in recent seasons, they have not fared too well. That is, 
the Men's Glee Club has had difBculty in obtaining concerts, and the Girl's Glee 
Club was getting concerts only within close proximity. Because of these cir- 
cumstances, it was decided to unite the two clubs, have a mixed troupe travel, 
and have a Campus Chorus to take care of the combined singing that would dis- 
appear with the cutting-out of the Glee Clubs. 

Lo! Out of this combination there grew two organizations, the Bay State 
Entertainers and the Campus Chorus. Both of these have been a success far so. 
This year the Campus Chorus is putting on only one concert, a Social Union Pro- 
gram. They meet once a week for an hour rehearsal and are trained by an effi- 
cient coach in group singing. It is a well-attended function with fifty to seventy- 
five members, and should prove a favorite activity in future years. 

The Bay State Entertainers is an organization of talented students whose 
various acts go to make up a delightful program. The program, composed of 
vocal numbers, musical numbers, dancing, readings, and a short play, lasts about 
one and one-half hours, and then the Orchestra, which travels with the Enter- 
tainers, supplies dance music for the remainder of the evening. As this is a new 
institution, it will take some time to build up a reputation, and we are sure that 
it will then be a popular organization throughout the state.

**^olpoke ^ills! prolong tfje Strain*' 

T TOLYQKE hills have been prolonging the strains of some musical organ- 
ization ever since the "Pioneer Class" entered M. A. C Many clubs, from 
the College Choir to the Bay State Entertainers have made the welkin ring since 
1869. The first musical bodies at M. A. C. were the College Choir and the Glee 
Club. The Choir was organized by the college fathers to insure devoutness during 
the service, but the Glee Club was a voluntary organization determined to add 
cheer to any and all gatherings. The Glee Club frequently had its own orchestra, 
but at other times the College Orchestra was independent of the Glee Club. 
As time went on banjo and mandolin clubs appeared until finally the combined 
musical clubs began to give several out of town concerts every season. The 
development of the College Choir into today's present Bay State Entertainers has 
been one of steady progress. The present combined Musical Clubs give several 
outside concerts each year with remarkable success and the teeming auditorium 
at campus concerts gives proof of the popularity of the clubs. 

In 1879, the "Morris Drum Corps" appeared. This was the military band 
and was named after the then reigning P. M. S. and T. Lieut. Morris. Four years 
later the name of the band was changed to the "Aggie Band," and by a gradual 
evolution was finally known simply as the "Military Band." Old residents of the 
town sometimes tell how they used to strut along the streets (when young) in- 
forming all, and sundry that, "Here comes the Aggie Band," meanwhile beating 
with vigor, if not with harmony, on an old tin wash tub. They were not making 
fun of the Band for the great ambition of most of the boys of the town was to 
grow up and play in the "Aggie Band" and wear a snappy uniform with a dark 
blue coat and white trousers. Today the band is more or less voluntary. Cap- 
tain Sumner and the Military Department do all in their power to help along the 
cause and enthusiastic support has resulted in getting a maroon and white opera 
cape for the leader, and maroon zipper shirts for all the members. The band had 
to bargain to get these costumes however, for now they have to appear at a certain 
number of games and mass meetings.

ITXACTLY sixty years ago, the junior class produced the first student pub- 
■*— ^ Hcation of the College, the Index. This was just the beginning of a long line 
of monthlies and weeklies put forth by the students in their literary and journal- 
istic endeavors. The Index throughout its long history has been a worthy and 
representative achievement of the students of this College. It has been a real 
criterion of Bay State literary prowess. 

Massachusetts men have taken another means of expressing their thoughts 
and sentiments in a literary way. The College newspaper has been from its be- 
ginning, one of the most prominent activities here. In 1870, the Amherst College 
Record had a department conducted by the senior class of M. A. C. News and 
notes of the College sometimes covered a full page. This page was an indirect 
ancestor of the Collegian. Up to 1890, when M. A. C. was separated from Boston 
University, the Beacon contained news of the College in a department conducted 
by Bay State men. Meanwhile, two student publications, the Register, an 
annual, and the College Monthly, were published at the college It was not until 
1890, however, that a regular weekly newspaper, Aggie Life, appeared on campus. 
Since then, it has enjoyed a continuous existence except for the changes in name. 
As a result of the student body's demands for a name without the word "Aggie"in 
it, the title was changed to the College Signal in October, 1901. Again, in 1914, 
in accordance with the wishes of the student body, the name was changed to the 
Massachusetts Collegian. This name has remained ever since. 

In 1914, a new publication made its appearance. This was the Friday War 
Cry, a comic magazine. The name was later changed to The Squib. After ten 
years of successful publication, it died a sudden death because of faculty censure. 
From that day to this, the Massachusetts man has been forced to read Life for its 

The latest publication on the Campus, the Inkhorne, a magazine of student 
poetry, made its appearance in 1927 and 1928. No issue came out in 1929 but 
work on the 1930 number has been going on during the past year. 

From the above, it can easily be seen that the tendency among the students 
has been towards a more liberal and artistic atmosphere in the field of literature. 
As the College grew more liberal, the students did also, and vice versa, so that we 
have now both a liberal-minded student body and a comprehensive curriculum.

THE early days of the college saw many plays and skits presented, but these 
were the results of the efforts of the individual classes and did not represent 
the college as a whole. One cold night in January 1910, a small group of earnest 
players met in the Chapel to discuss plans for a dramatic union that would include 
all the talent of the college. The result of this meeting was the Dramatic Society 
which began its formal production the next year. By 1914 the students felt that 
Dramatic Society was not a sufficiently distinctive and colorful name and so the 
Roister Doisters — named after the first true English comedy — came into existence. 
The organization was under the supervision of the Non-Athletic Association. 
Because of the war the society was largely inactive until 1919, after which people 
found that they had time to play again. 

The purpose of the Roister Doisters is to bring before the undergraduates of 
the college, strictly by means of student talent, the best productions obtainable 
in tragedy and comedy As a result of this liberal policy the society has enjoyed a 
most enviable record among student activities. 

Besides the three entertainments given every year: "Aggie Revue" (when 
will its name be changed?), "Prom" Show and the Commencement Play, the 
Roister Doisters have presented at least two shows which were well-received by 
people not intimately connected with the college. The first of these was "Pluto's 
Daughter," a musical comedy, which was presented at the Academy of Music in 
Northampton in 1915. This was M. A. C.'s first original musical comedy and 
was written and presented entirely by the students. The three joint authors 
were Sidney M. Morse '15, Hyde Smith '15, and Frank Anderson '16. The Acad- 
emy was crowded for the show and the abundance of little devils, the catch music, 
the clever lines and dancing took the audience by storm. 

Another outstanding, and permanent production of the Roister Doisters is 
the movie, Aggie Men Are Gathered. This film took three years to make and only 
the skillful editing by Jane Patterson '29 made its production possible, for it had 
nearly been abandoned as hopeless. The plot is more or less the usual one where 
the hero wins the big game at the last minute but there are two things which we 
especially remember. The first is the tremendous speed at which the Dean's car 
travels, and the second is the crowd which carries the hero from the field after he 
has turned defeat into victory. We were in it. 

During the past year the Roister Doisters enjoyed a very successful season. 
The "Prom" Show was Craig's Wife. "Blondie" Mills and Jane Patterson, both 
'29 were largely responsible for the success of the play. Macbeth, with the same 
two playing the leads, was the other outstanding feature of the season.

T^EBATING activities began earlier than usual with two intramural debates 
*~^ on November 7 and December 5. The second of these served to introduce 
the Oregon plan of cross examination which gives promise of usurping the pop- 
ularity of the Oxford plan. 

Varsity debating began with a promising outlook of one veteran of two year's 
varsity debating, two members of last year's freshman team, which was unusually 
good, and two freshmen who had some debating experience. The subject selected 
lacked much in appeal to the student body, but there was not much choice because 
of the insist ance of our opponents. The subject was Resolved: "that the nations 
should adopt a plan of complete disarmament except of such forces needed for 
police duty." 

The team has yet to meet its first opponent, but with the careful grooming 
which each debating team receives from Professor W. E. Prince who is the coach, 
there is no doubt that the team will be worthy of Massachusetts.

T N the midst of life, progress, and development, we feel that we must pause to 
-*- include a mention of one of our heritages which has been closely tied up with 
the early years of the college, and which, alas, has not received the veneration due 
it. It is in hopes therefore that through out efforts the students will pass with 
more reverence and greater appreciation the "Old Stockbridge House," that we 
borrow the following article from the 1927 Index. 

"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 th 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 against which the first settlers fought with cush 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. I/ike other 
old homes in this part of the country, its principle beams and windov sills are hand 
hewn, what nails that are in the house are hand made and the latjhes 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 seriously 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 be'ig versed in country things'."

Clasfsi Cljaracters; 

'TpHIS is the sixth time that we have started this damned thing and from the 
-■- looks of things we may have to try six more times, for we really ought not to 
say anything that might be construed as being radical. The editor told us to be 
funny and that was enough to nip the whole thing in the bud. 

But seriously now we must get down to business and write something about 
our Cla.tfi Characters. The picking of characters is a dangerous job fraught with 
potential perils for people have to live up to other's conceptions of them. Suppose 
the printer confused the names of the most popular co-ed and the smoker. 
Imagine "Pee- Wee" inhaling vigorously on an evil smelling pipe and "Dan" pat- 
tering around in a short dress with no stockings? Or suppose the most popular 
prof, were confused with the smoothest man; then "Doc" Torrey would have to 
invade the "Abbey" and give the little girls a "line" (individually) and "Dave" 
would have to study almost twice as hard as he does now. You can conceive of 
the ensuing "weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth" if many mistakes of this 
sort were made, so we will not tell you any more for even you can probably see the 
inherent danger of picking Class Characters even with no malice aforethought. 

The one thing that we can pride ourselves on is that there is no Rustic in the 
class of '31, but the rest are to be found below. 

"All the ivorld is queer save thee and me, and sometimes even thee are a little queer."

^upresisiion anb Eebibal of Hihttalitv 

TT'ENYON Butterfield was the first President of M. A. C. to be the graduate of an 
■*^ Agricultural College. He definitely determined to make M. A. C. agricultural. 
He repeatedly emphasized, in his public speeches, that "We must never forget that this 
is solely an Agricultural College." During his administration, many courses were 
added, but always with the nomenclature "Agricultural." For eighteen years he suc- 
cessfully stifled the "State College idea." When he resigned in 1924 Edward M. Lewis, 
then Dean, was made acting President, and later was elected to the chair. In 1927 he 
resigned, and Roscoe W. Thatcher, another graduate of an Agricultural college, became 

The latter years of President Butterfield's administration saw the beginnings of the 
renaissance of liberality which now seems about to culminate in definite action. More 
and more courses have been added to the curriculum of the Department of Humanities, 
particularly studies in English and Modern Languages. Thru the interest of Professors, 
many courses, as yet too liberal for the college curriculum, have been offered in seminars, 
and these have proven exceptionally popular with the students. For several years Dr. 
Torrey has held private lectures on Philosophy and Metaphysics; Professor Waugh has 
given seminars on Art Appreciation, and the English Department has held weekly 
lectures on special scholarly problems. In 1928 Professor Dunbar conducted a volun- 
tary course in Greek. 

With the revival of student desire for cultural courses has come the revival of the 
"State College idea," It was presented to the students in "Mass Action," a North 
College production, in 1928 and resulted in the formation of the "Agitation Committee" 
to keep the interest alive. The report of the committee is given elsewhere in this volume, 
but it has done its work, even going so far as to interview Governor Fuller in hopes of 
legislative action. The Alumni have carried the idea farther and in 1929 formed the 
"University of Massachusetts Club," a national organization whose purpose is to sup- 
plant the Agricultural College by a University. In 1930 the Agitation Committee voted 
to disband and reorganize as the Campus Chapter of the University of Massachusetts 
Club. Now for the first time, an organized alumni body is cooperating with the students 
to remove the word Agricultural from the name of the College. 

Sixty years of student criticism have passed. Almost every great change for the 
broadening of the scope of M. A. C. has been preceeded by student demand. Almost 
every insistent student demand has been granted. There has been a continuous move- 
ment for growth from the first suggestion that the college advertise to the latest demand 
for a university. Judged by past successes, it is but a question of time before the hope 
of a generation of students will be realized and Massachusetts shall have a State College. 

Communication Jfrom tfte €la^^ of 1921 

TN being called upon to write a communication in behalf of the Class of '21 for an historicalissue 
-'- of the Index I feel that it would not be out of place to say a few words concerning the college 
customs in our time. The class of '21 entered M. A. C. in 1917. The total enrolment of the col- 
lege was rather large, but in the short time of one year the enrolment had fallen to almost nothing. 
Nearly everyone had gone to the war and in 1918 the college was made up, largely of S.A.T.C. men. 
By January, however, nearly all of those who had left had returned and the of '21, for this 
reason, contained men from each of the three preceeding classes. During the war nearly all 
college customs had disappeared so it was up to us to revive the old traditions. One of our most 
effective means of making a Freshman conscious of his college was to hold Arena Parties at which 
he was bathed in tar and then gentlj' rolled in the soft shavings covering the floor of the Arena. 
(Gasoline and a good stiff brush usually removed the tar). 

Another pleasant custom was the Banquet SCRAP. The Freshmen tried to hold a banquet 
in some nearby city with their officers at the head of the table; in fact, the banquet was considered 
a failure unless the officers were there. It was the duty of the Sophs to see that these men were 
not there to respond to the "Bottoms Up, " The rules specified that neither class should leave 
Amherst during the few days preceeding the scrap but '21 decided that the Freshman Banquet 
should not be a success in spite of the rules. We therefore hired handcuffs from the Amherst and 
Springfield police and proceeded to ask as many Freshmen as we could find, "Want a ride.'" 
We then took our guests to an old barn in Levrett and handcuffed them in a circle around a large 
post in the center of an old barn. The few guards we left were slightly under the weather so the 
"Frosh " had little difficulty in undermining the post and reaching a farmer who cut the handcuffs. 
(Cost to the Class of '21, $250). The next day the two classes met in a pitched battle in front of 
French Hall and again '21 had to pay — this time for a mutilated fire hose. As a further bit of 
ignominy the stocks which we had, prepared for the reception of the Freshmen were found to be our size, and the Freshmen had their Banquet after all. 

It is with regret that we see the passing of the old customs. We realize that it maj' be a change 
for the better, yet we had a lot of fun in the old days.

'T'^HE history of the Military Department seems to have varied as the type of 
-*- uniform issued to the Cadets. The first uniform consisted of a panama hat 
and a grey flannel shirt with the letters M. A. C. worked into a shield on the 
breast. Altho these made up the entire uniform the cadets were expected to wear 
trousers and were even made to tuck the shirts inside the trousers. At this time 
four years was the customary length of service, but in spite of such prolonged drill, 
the percentage of survival was high. Student enthusiasm for military was not 
very high at this time, perhaps because their uniform would never cause feminine 
hearts to flutter. The next issue of uniforms was still grey, but the authorities 
recognized masculine needs and supplied trousers. Public opinion thought that 
the wearers of these uniforms looked like the inmates of a reform school but when 
the cadets donned their thirty dollar dress coats they were often taken for gen- 
erals. In 1875 the West Point uniform was adopted with its two rows of bright 
brass buttons which made the shoulders of most anemic specimen look as wide as 
those of a blacksmith. These uniforms were blue with white trimmings and a reg- 
ular army coat was worn instead of a blouse and so did away with dress coats. 
This was the time of artillery units, student fire-departments and forage caps. 
These also were the days when the Cadets clamored for week-end hikes and 
patroUings of Mount Toby and when extra drill was given as punishment for 

Of all the branches of Military tried here at M. A. C. — Cavalry, Infantry, 
and Artillery — Artillery was the most popular. The cannon could always be 
used to make noise at all sorts of celebrations and meetings. As a matter of fact 
the cannon were so well-liked that the Amherst students frequently tried to borrow 
them without our permission in order to celebrate their victories. These acts of 
vandalism, of course, gave delightful opportunities for the students of both col- 
leges to indulge in free fights. 

These simple joys could not last forever for soon the World War came and 
with it kahki uniforms and frenzied preparations for overseas. In 1917 the mili- 
tary Department was organized as an infantry unit of the Reserve Officers Tram- 

IS 31 


ing Corps. Too much cannot be said in praise of the wartime services of our 
students and faculty but the Memorial Building expresses this feeling much 
better than we can put it on paper. In the Fall of 1920 the R. O. T. C. was con- 
verted into a cavalry unit, and the students have been pounding the saddles ever 
since. At the present time only two years of military are required at the end of 
which time the student is able to function as a full-fledged corporal of cavalry. 
If a student desires, he can "major" in Military by taking an advance course 
which consists of two years of intensive study with a trip to Fort Ethan Allen 
between the Junior and Senior years. At graduation a military "major" is given 
a commission in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps and is fitted to serve his 
country whenever called upon. 

They buried Private Higgins 
With his rifle by his side 
But instead of laurel wreaths — he got 
Demerits 'cause he died.
