"No bookless life — however full and rich — can 
ever give a modern man any satisfactory sense of just 
exactly what he is or where he belongs. For, at best, 
such a life must be lived in the world as it is to-day. 
And the world as it is to-day is a result of what the world 
has been in the past. Unless we understand that past 
we cannot understand what we are." 

J. L. Bennett.

Lawrence Sumner Dickinson 

His Alma Mater, once his creditor, 

Is now in debt to him; she realizes 

His scorn of plodded paths, his liking for 

Exacting and enduring enterprises. 

She traces his contributive career 

To nineteen-ten, his talisman and token; 

In play-production he was pioneer; 

His relay record still remains unbroken. 

To-day she owes to him preeminence 
In golf course maintenance and mysteries; 
In Academics too, his business sense 
Inspires and steadies student energies; 
And thus he gives expression to intense 
Albeit discriminating loyalties.

"Massachusetts State College may be 
thought of as a family of four persons liv- 
ing together in the closest relationship. 
We may think of these four persons as the 
student body, the Alumni body, the Fac- 
ulty and the Administration. 



Mutual respect, mutual friendliness, 
and mutual interest are the factors which 
make these four groups function success- 
fully as a family. Four groups with their 



eyes fixed on a common goal — the con- 
tinued success of the College — cannot fail 
of accomplishment."

In Memoriam 





WILLIAM PENN BROOKS, Ph.D. 

Born — 
November 19, 1851 



Died — 
March 8, 1938 



[40] 



WILLIAM PENN BROOKS 



The career of Dr. William Penn Brooks is suggestively the story of the Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College. Tenth of a good old New England family of eleven children 
and having both studied and taught in the public schools, he came up to college, 
belatedly by a couple of terms, as a member of the Class of '75. Those were the pioneer 
days of President Colonel Clark. Brooks and Clark were of the kind of men who 
inspire each other. They did. 

There is significance in the following story: Brooks had been collecting data in con- 
nection with a sap-running experiment which was later to elicit compliments from Louis 
Agassiz, and Clark interrogated him in the presence of a Legislative Committee, "So 
you can tell which trees will run freely and which will not?" "No, sir," answered Brooks, 
"I can tell which trees hare run freely and which have not." 

It was in 1873 that Brooks and five classmates brought into being the fraternity Phi 
Sigma Kappa, which at the present time has a roll of forty-five chapters. At a recent 
anniversai-y of the founding in the local chapter house the speaking program was as 
follows: National President Hamilton, Founder Brooks, his son-in-law George A. Drew, 
and his grandson, William Brooks Drew, the two Drews, together with his son Sumner 
Brooks, all being members of the parent chapter. 

Brooks followed his president to our scion college at Sapporo, Japan, and from 
1877 to 1888 was there in residence as professor of agriculture and botany and for four 
years president ad interim. When he resigned this post he was decorated with the 
Fourth Order of the Rising Sun by the Emperor, and in 1919 he was recipient of the 
honorary degree Nogaka Hakushi by the Japanese Department of Education. The 
cherry trees on Farview Way are a lovely symbol of his decade in the Orient. 

Brooks came back to Amherst to take up pioneer work in agriculture under his 
old teacher, Hem-y H. Goodell. In connection with his professoi-ship of agriculture he 
acquired a doctorate magna cum laiide in Germany in 1897 and published a three volume 
textbook under the title Agriculture. As manager of the college farm he built the "new 
barn" on the present site. From 1905 to 1917 he was Director of the Massachusetts 
Experiment Station. For two years, 1905-06, he was President ad interim of the College. 
In 1921, at the age of seventy, he retired and was made professor-emeritus. Two 
years later Dr. Butterfield was to resign his presidency and the agricultural program 
as the dominant institutional policy was over. Thus Dr. Brooks came in with this 
program, accompanied it around the earth, and with it retired from active life. 

His sunset years have been as one would wish them. After the death of his first 
wife, Eva Bancroft Hall, he was again married, to Mrs. Grace L. Holden, who survives 
him. He sometimes wintered in Florida, but not until after he had given his Christ- 
mas party for the children on Farview Way. He had three great-grandchildren of 
his own now: Marcia and Cynthia, the daughters of William B. Di-ew; and Benjamin 
W. Drew, Jr. A liberal in religion he was none-the-less a zealous member of the Unity 
Church to the time of his death. In 1932 his Alma Mater conferred upon him an 
honorary Doctorate of Agriculture. At the age of eighty-four he flew to California, un- 
attended, to visit his son. Dr. Sumner C. Brooks at the State University. Throughout 
his life he was a forward-looking, scholarly, kindly and high-minded gentleman. This 
College is proud in his memory.

THE ASSOCIATE ALUMNI 



Yesterdays at Massachusetts State College by Frank Prentice Rand is a fascinating, 
informal story which tells, in dramatic narrative, of the inception, growth, and develop- 
ment of our College from 1864 through 1933. 

The Associate Alumni engaged Professor Rand, in 1931, to write the book. In 
the fall of 1933, after nearly two years of careful reseai-ch, of editing and checking, the 
volume was ready for publication. 

Yesterdays received immediate and enthusiastic acclaim. Louis Lyons '18, 
writing in the Boston Globe, called the story "as exciting as a football game." Dr. 
Joel E. Goldthwait '85 said, "I wish it might be used as a textbook in English, letting our 
students see, among other things, how much of poetry can be part of prose."

THE ASSOCIATE ALUMNI 



The publication and distribution of this history is but one of numerous projects 
which have been undertaken and carried to successful completion by the alumni 
organization. Alumni Field, Memorial Hall, the Physical Education Building were all 
planned and built through concerted, organized alumni effort. 

The Associate Alumni was founded in 1874, its object "to promote, in every proper 
way, the interests of the College, to foster among the graduates a sentiment of mutual 
regard, and to promote and strengthen their attachment to their Alma Mater." To 
this day the organization has continued — with that object in view — as a helpful, vital 
influence in the history of Massachusetts State College. 

There is a Board of Directors composed of sixteen elected members who meet 
several times each year, with the other officers, to discuss and plan the work of the 
Associate Alumni. The Directors are.

Four short years ago, a group of neo- 
phytes arrived on the State campus 
amidst a veritable flood. Although rather 
disappointed in our first impression of 
the muddy net-work of entrenchments 
criss-crossing the campus, we soon be- 
came acclimated to our environment and 
attached to it. During our first few weeks, 
we became acquainted with our fellow 
classmen, electing the following as offi- 
cers: Francis Riel, President; Ruth Wood, 
Vice-President; Jessie Kinsman, Secre- 
tary; Frederick Sievers, Treasurer; David 
Mildram, Class Captain; Jack Slocomb, 
Sergeant-at-Arms. Class spirit was strong 
from the beginning so that when the 
traditional clashes came with our rivals, 
the class of '37, we were not outdone. 
Victory came to us in the events of Razoo 
Night, Freshman-Sophomore field day, 
soccer, football, and basketball. Our only 
defeat was in the rope pull. Though a 
few of our members found the final exams 
really final, the majority of the class of 
'38 survived to emerge as sophomores in 
the fall. 



And now it was our turn to show our 
ability in class rivalry. But our super- 
iority proved to be in age alone, for we 
were defeated by our "inferiors" in the 
majority of athletic events. We proved 
to be men of brains, not brawn. To the 
class offices, we elected Francis Riel, 
President; Ruth Wood, Vice-President; 
Jessie Kinsman, Secretary; Frederick 
Sievers, Treasurer; David Mildram, Class 
Captain; and Frederick Riel, Sergeant-at- 
Arms. Later, due to the withdrawal of 
our first two officers, we elected Herbert 
Brown and Elthea Thompson to fill these 
vacancies. In the Burnham Declamation 
contest, the class of thirty-eight shone — 
thanks to John Hoar and Frank Brox, 
who won first and second places respec- 
tively. The Sophomore-Senior Hop came 
as a fitting climax to the achievements of 
our second year in college. Due to the 
success of the dance, our future position 
of prominence in social life on the campus 
was guaranteed.

Our junior year was successful, though 
unmarked by outstanding events. Class 
officers that year were Herbert Brown, 
President; Ruth Wood, Vice-President; 
Frederick Sievers, Treasurer; Jessie Kins- 
man, Secretary; David Mildram, Class 
Captain; and Frederick Riel, Sergeant-at- 
Arms. Members of the class achieved 
honors by elections to Adelphia, Honor 
Council, and Senate, as well as to leader- 
ship in other outstanding college activ- 
ities. 

Evolving from freshmen to stately 
seniors, the class began its final year with 
the spirit and zeal typical of a well- 
balanced group of students anxious to 
cooperate in academic, athletic and social 
activities for the ultimate benefit both of 
the College and of itself. 

In the fall of the year, through the 
medium of Adelphia, the senior class 
stirred up college spirit in the form of 
several successful football rallies. Mean- 
while, the Senate leaders continued to 



mold student life and to guide student 
government along the proper course. 

Naturally enough, all of the College 
athletic teams were headed and supported 
by many hard-working members of the 
class of 1938. 

As for social life, seniors did much to 
make this phase of college life successful 
by planning, attending, and enjoying the 
dances and Social Union programs as well 
as other forms of entertainment. 

Scholastic development was by no 
means neglected, as shown by the fact 
that almost 250 students are to be gradu- 
ated in June, several of whom were 
elected to the honor society. Phi Kappa 
Phi. 

The day rapidly approaches when we 
will leave behind four years of memories 
and will carry away with us the experi- 
ence and the culture that was granted 
to us not only by twenty odd years of 
time but by four glorious years at Massa- 
chusetts State College.

In the fall of the year nineteen hundred 
and thirty-five, nearly three hundred and 
fifty new students were greeted by Pro- 
fessor Lanphear as the first class of post- 
war-babies — the class of Thirty-nine. 
Like all freshmen classes, we felt utterly 
green and confused. But it was only a 
short time before we had started on the 
road that has led us, and is still leading 
us, to prominence and prestige on the 
campus. 



That first fall, class elections brought 
to the front Richard Bowler as our 
President; Eleanor Nugent, our Vice- 
President; Constance Fortin, Secretary; 
Donald Calo, Treasurer; Lloyd Copeland, 
Captain; Walter Zajchowski, Sergeant-at- 
Arms. With the exception of the usual 
fall battles between the fi-eshmen and 
sophomores, our class quietly and un- 
conspicuously went its way on campus 
until the spring brought the Roister

Bolsters' presentation of "Othello". At 
that time, one of our members, Constance 
Fortin, rose to great prominence and 
made us very proud when she alternated 
in the leading women's parts with a noted 
upper-class woman. Then Maroon Key 
elections made Robert Packard President 
of that honorary society; Howard Steff, 
Vice-President; John Click, Secretary; 
and Robert Cole, Donald Cadigan, Gordon 
Najar, Robert Swanson, Richard Bowler 
and Stephen Kosakowski, members. 



The fall of '36 brought our class back 
to Amherst eager for great accomplish- 
ments. Due to the fact that many of our 
athletes were on varsity squads, we were 
forced to submit to the fresh force of the 
class of '40 in the rope pull and interclass 
games — but we could not feel too badly 
about that. Gordon Najar was our new 
President; Constance Fortin, Vice-Presi- 
dent; Dorothy Nichols, Secretary; Robert 



[119} 



eicai c4 1939 



Glass, Treasurer; Howard Staff, Captain; 
and Charles Rodda, Sergeant-at-Arms. 
Roger Cole and Frank Southwick were 
newly elected to the Maroon Key. Then 
came the first snowless Winter Carnival. 
Even though the weatherman ruled out 
sports and did his best to dampen our 
spii'its, he could not spoil the big Carnival 
Ball, the Chairman of which was a mem- 
ber of our class — John Glick. It de- 
finitely became our big night when one of 
our classmates, Marjorie Damon, was 
chosen Carnival Queen. 

Then in the spring came the important 
elections to the Senate. William Howe, 
Robert Cain, Francis Riel, and Frank 
Southwick were chosen to be our 
senators. The Roister Doisters' presenta- 
tion of "The Night of January 16th" 
brought before the footlights several class 
members, to whom we cannot help point- 
ing with pride. We cannot neglect to 
mention that one of our members, Beryl 
Briggs, won the second place in the Burn- 
ham Declamation contest, bringing more 
honors to our class. 

As the last undertaking of our Sopho- 
more year, we took in hand the Soph- 
Senior Hop, which was very successfully 
run under the chairmanship of William 
Howe, assisted by his committee — Mabelle 



Booth, Constance Fortin, John Glick, 
George Haylon, and Gordon Najar. 

This last fall saw the class of '39 as a 
dignified and serious-minded group of 
juniors. One of its first acts was the re- 
election of all the officers of the previous 
year. During Christmas, we were be- 
reaved of one of our very best members. 
It was a sad blow to all of us when we 
heard that death had taken Thomas 
Enright. 

The last event occuring before we sub- 
mitted this history was the second snow- 
less Winter Carnival. Once again we 
took in hand the Carnival Ball, with 
William Howe as chairman and Mabelle 
Booth and Robert Cain on his committee. 
The Roister Doister play, "Not Without 
Hope", one of the highlights of the Carni- 
val, again brought members of our class 
before the footlights. 

And so we leave this history with the 
promise of many other activities to come 
with our members at the helm. Clifton 
Morey has already been elected to the 
captaincy of the 1939 football team. More 
recently Emery Moore and Mabelle Booth 
have been elected to the posts of Editor- 
in-Chief and Associate Editor of the Col- 
legian for the coming year. Thus we look 
forward with great expectations to our 
last and biggest year as undergraduates.

The September of 1937 blessed our 
College with the reappearance of the class 
of 1940 — the same, yet not the same; for 
with its return, the members had proudly 
cast aside their humble status as fresh- 
men, and from the elevated position of 
sophomores looked down with kindly pity 
upon the bewildered neophytes of the 
class of '41 whom they sought to initiate 
into the ways of sophistication. Thus, 
having attained collegiate maturity, they 



assumed the responsibility of guardians of 
the frosh; the morning sun witnessed 
strange scenes before the Abbey and 
Thatcher Hall as ranks of freshmen, 
marshaled by able sophomores, strained 
their lungs in learning the gentle art of 
serenading. It also might be said that 
certain freshmen will not soon forget the 
exercise of sophomoric might on the 
memorable evening of November 16, 
when the lions of their class were tamed

by having their manes clipped, and were 
afterwards given an object lesson at the 
college pond in the old analogy of the 
"little frog in the big puddle." 

But the sophomores had not forgotten 
their previous year, when they elected 
Frederick Watson, President; Marjorie 
Smith, Vice-President; Virginia Gale, 
Secretary; Robert Jones, Treasurer; Larry 
Reagan, Captain; and Alan Smith, Ser- 
geant-at-Arms. Nor did they forget the 



defeat of their traditional enemies in the 
rope pull and soph-frosh football classic; 
nor the ducking they gave their sophist- 
icated rivals in the swimming meet. To 
be sure, they tasted occasional defeat, 
as on Razoo night; yet they rose undaunt- 
ed to stand high on their established re- 
putation, and forged ahead in their second 
year. Thus in 1937-38, the class of 1940 
is fulfilling the brilliant promise of its 
past. 



[135] 



etadd CK^ 1940 



The sophomores are now firmly estab- 
hshed in the Hfe of M. S. C— They, as 
academic veterans, have successfully 
counter-attacked three barrages of exam- 
inations, with few casualties, and they 
look forward to a successful campaign 
throughout the remainder of their college 
career. In athletics, the class generally 
distinguished itself — not only as a class 
group, but also through the support of 
many of its members in inter-fraternity 
and varsity sports. Socially, the sopho- 
mores were represented at every campus 
dance, both formal and informal. More- 
over, their delegates served well on vari- 



ous dance committees, while two of their 
number, Erma Alvord and Lorraine 
Creesy, were among the regal attendants 
of the Carnival Queen at the Winter Car- 
nival Ball. In addition, the class was well 
represented in all other extra-curriculcir 
activities. Two sophomore girls, Erma 
Alvord and Alberta Johnson, were chosen 
as drum majors of the College Band, thus 
having the honor of being the first co-eds 
ever to become members of that organiza- 
tion. 

Thus stands the class of 1940, and such 
is its present history as it looks forward 
with confidence to its future.

The President, the Dean, and the Regis- 
trar sat back and wiped their respective 
brows. And with very good reason — 
they had just finished accepting the last 
of the 360 members of the class of 1941, 
and the school year of 1937-38 was for- 
mally ushered in. 

Freshman week — callow youths walk- 
ing with naive maidens who had a weather 
eye out for scavenging seniors. Psycho- 
logical tests — conclusive proof that we had 
forgotten more than we ever knew. Fra- 
ternity rushing — eager upperclassmen 



breathlessly shaking hands, discussing 
college life, serving cider, doughnuts, and 
bologna, for the benefit of the already be- 
wildered freshman. 

Classes start — dazed neophytes 
stumbled out of Dr. Torrey's first lecture, 
uncertain whether they were in three 
dimensions or six, but firmly convinced of 
one of two things — either Dr. Torrey is 
one of the most brilliant men on earth, or 
he is thoroughly pixylated. Under the 
tutelage of Dean Lanphear, the new- 
comers were made aware of the phases of

Venus and the location of the Abbey, and 
were in other ways oriented in space and 
time. 

Hazing started and incipient Romeos 
serenaded the fair damsels in the Abigail 
Adams House. Under the influence of a 
piece of pine an inch thick, four inches 
across, and about two feet long, the new 
collegiates committed to memory the 
cheers, the Medley and the Alma Mater 
in time to be well prepared for the first 
football game. The next week the women 
carried their books around in pillowcases, 



refused to speak to boys, wore mismated 
shoes, and were otherwise duly initiated. 
All through the fall, the men wore on 
their heads ridiculous bits of maroon 
cloth which they smirkingly tipped to the 
sedate senators during the first weeks of 
school; and the girls tried to discover the 
most becoming angle for their white 
berets in hopes of attracting an upper- 
classman. This bit of horseplay ended 
on Columbus Day for the girls, but the 
"men" suffered the indignity until the 
Thanksgiving Recess, when refractory

freshmen explored the submarine section 
of the campus. But first the sophomores 
took due precautions so that the plebes 
would not get their hair wet. (This pre- 
caution consisted of removing the offen- 
sive stuff with a horse-clipper.) 

The first red-letter day of 1937 was 
September 25th, at precisely 13 minutes 
before five o'clock, w^hen the sophomores 
reached the end of their rope and took 
a bath as a consequence. A few minutes 
later, fireworks started in the young-stock 
barn. With characteristic masculine forti- 
tude, both classes rushed to the rescue 
of any damsels in distress, to be greeted 
only with "moos". In spite of this first 
disappointment, the valiant heroes worked 
side by side with the Amherst fire chief. 
They didn't save the barn, but few of 
them will every forget the day. 



Two other red-letter days of the fall 
were Razoo Night when the freshman 
showed what the sophomores were made 
of, and Mountain Day which taught the 
hikers of the virtues of patience and per- 
serverance if they hoped to get any 
supper. 

The freshman were proficient in other 
sports besides hiking. The swimming 
team won the inter-class meet, the cross- 
country team had a fine season, and intra- 
mural basketball proved to be one of the 
most popular winter afternoon pastimes. 

During the winter the freshmen faced 
their first final examinations. But most 
of the class came back for the second se- 
mester in order to become, older, wiser, 
and sophomores.

STATE COLLEGE

. ASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE is concerned with the intellectual, moral, 
social, and physical development of its students. As a State-supported institu- 
tion, it must also prepare each student to assume the responsibilities of useful 
citizenship in the society and state in which he will live upon graduation. 

With these ends in view, the college recognizes five objectives. 1. Intellectual 
training, that the student may think, judge, and appreciate better and become 
more intellectually interesting to himself and others. 2. Training for productive 
work, that he may have both the desire and the ability to engage in successful 
and useful work after graduation. 3. Social training, that he may live harmoniously 
with others. 4. Health training, that he may come to understand his own health 
resources and maintain the bodily and mental vigor necessary for a useful and 
happy life. 5. Recreational training, that he may leam to use his leisure time in a 
wholesome way and refresh himself for the work ahead.

*'CARRY-0\^ER VALUE" 

Most educational institutions einpliasize — in 
llieir catalogues at least — the theme of "ath- 
letics for all." Massachusetts State College at 
Amhersi, is now proceeding a step further, Be- 
iieving correctly that skill in the major games 
like football and baseball (which, incidentali\'. 
:t. still encourages) is of little use to a man 
after he leaves college, the athletic directors are 
requiring freshmen to learn the essentials of 
golf, tennis and swimming, sports which ha\e 
an obvious "carry-over value." Later they may, 
if they care to, develop their talents in badmin- 
ton, archery and hiking. 



"Sports tor all" is more than an idle 
dream; it is a program which has been 
realized at Massachusetts State.

DEAN MACHMER 
OF M. S. C. PLEADS 
FORiNDIVIDDAL" 

AMHERST, April 19, (.'P).— Pat- 
terns in education to fit the "in- 
dividual" student rather than Ibr 
"typical" student wore urged to- 
day by Dean William L. Machmcr 
of Massachusetts Statf> Collese. 

In a public statement, Deait 
Machmei- said that undue ernphasis 
upon "curriculum" in education hs^ 
tended to shape individuals into 
"types." 

While admitting that standards 
of scholastic achievement must be 
maintained, Dean Machmer said 
these standards "must make more 
allowance for individual differ- 
ences." 

"The principal task of a college 
is to lead students to independent 
mental accomplishment." he said. 
"Educators must constantly keep 
in mind the conduct, habits, atti- 
tudes, and particular inrerests, in 
addition to the scholarly nature, of 
I he individual student." 



HEADLINE-Courses For Women Are Well Planned 




All courses are open to women students. Many however, like those shown in the dress construction class above, study 
dietetics, home-making, clothing and other phases of Home Economics.

HEADLINE-M.S.C. Still Leads In Agriculture 



F 



ROM the day when it was chartered, in 1863, to the present, 
Massachusetts State College has always recognized its obliga- 
tion "to teach subjects related to agriculture and the mechanic 
arts, so as to promote liberal and practical education." The 
College has never lost sight of this obligation and its courses 
in the Divisions of Agriculture and Horticulture are stronger 
today than ever before. Many of its Alumni in these fields have 
acquired international reputations which are evidence of the 
achievement of the College in these studies. 

Agricultural research at Massachusetts State has laid the 
ground work for many important agricultural industries. Its 
service to the Commonwealth in these fields has long been 
recognized as significant.

COMMENCEMENT 







N Commencement Day students step from the undergraduate 
body into the Association of Alumni. They are sent into the world 
prepared to make their way in life. Graduates of Massachusetts 
State College are found in practically every field of human 
endeavor and many of them have so built upon their sound 
college training that they are now leaders in business, in industry, 
in agriculture, and in the professions. 

A certain obligation is recognized by graduates of Massa- 
chusetts State College. As recipients of education at this state- 
supported college, they cheerfully recognize their obligations to 
turn their education to the benefit of society as a whole, not only 
through their work but also through their very mode of living, 
their every contact with the society which helped provide their 
education. 




Commencement Exercises Are Held in The Rhododendron Garden.

FRATERNITIES 

T 

The aim of the fraternity is to unite individuals of divergent tastes and interests in 
a common bond of fellowship, to integrate individual desires, and to focus them in the 
welfare of a higher entity, the fraternity. While some try to raise the member to a 
contemplation and exemplification of the high ideals of wisdom, truth, and righteous- 
ness, while others strive to infuse merely a spirit of social companionship, all frater- 
nities succeed in binding together their members in mutual fellowship and good will. 



INTERFRATERNITY AWARDS 



At the first meeting of the school year, the Interfraternity Council decided which 
three fraternities should receive cups for their ranking in the Interfraternity Comipe- 
tition of 1936-37. The purpose of the annual competition is the promotion of friendly 
rivalry among the various fraternities. Prizes are awarded on the basis of academics, 
which consist of the Interfraternity Sing, Snow Sculpturing, and House Inspections; 
scholarship; and athletics, which include football, soccer, basketball, volley ball, track 
and baseball. Theta Chi received the first prize; Kappa Sigma was a close second, and 
Q. T. V. ranked third.

The Interfraternity Council, which meets on the first Wednesday of every month, 
is composed of two men from each fraternity. Its purpose is the strengthening of the 
bond of friendship between these organizations. 

Besides renewing the annual competition, the Council also sponsors an Interfra- 
ternity Convocation every spring. It also holds a banquet, at which the junior mem- 
bers of the Council are given keys in recognition of their work. President Baker, Dean 
Machmer, and one other interesting speaker are invited. 

The Council was represented at the National Interfraternity Conference in New 
York by Donald Silverman, '38. 

This year an entirely new set of rushing rules was instituted, the main feature 
of which was the elimination of second semester rushing. A "Fraternity Bible" was 
published for the first time in order to give the freshmen the history, meaning and 
importance of fraternities in college life. A new committee was formed to work in 
conjunction with the Student Life Committee in an effort to attain greater harmony 
between the students and faculty.

Q. T. V. FRATERNITY 

Founded at Massachusetts Agricultural College 
May 12, 1869 

Colors: White and Brown 



As the oldest fraternity on this campus, Q. T. V. 
has a history that is nearly as long and fascinating 
as the history of the college itself. But since last 
year a brilliant new phase of development has com- 
menced. In the late Spring of 1937, the house 
instituted an annual formal dance as a part of the 
regular fraternity program. Last Spring the dance 
was held on the 15th of May and was a tremendous

Soon after this, a project was started to improve 
the beautiful interior of the famous old Fearing 
estate which has been the home of Q. T. V. since 
1915. A timely examination of the woodwork re- 
sulted in having the entire house redecorated on 
the inside. This work was supplemented by re- 
conditioning the tennis court in the rear of the 
house, a task which will take two years to com- 
plete satisfactorily. When the house has been re- 
painted on the outside, the ambitious program which 
began this year will be completed. 

The fall term found Q. T. V. activities shifting 
from improvement of the estate to preparation for 
the inter-fraternity competition. The announce- 
ment of awards in 1936-37 inter-fraternity competi- 
tion came out in October, and found Q. T. V. in 
third place. As a result of fall rushing, the house 
pledged fifteen men — eleven freshmen, two sopho- 
mores, and two juniors. And as the first semester 
came to a close, Q. T. V. was leading in inter- 
fraternity football and volley ball leagues, later 
emerging in first place in both. 

In retrospect, the scholastic, academic, athletic, 
and social activities of Q. T. V. during this past year 
have heralded a new era of accomplishment for the 
fraternity, as well as a period of even greater service 
to the ideals of the college. Such a year justifies 
the reverence which Q. T. V. men feel for the tradi- 
tions of their long-established brotherhood. The 
chapter thus becomes more than a mere fraternity; 
it becomes an admirable heritage, on this same 
campus where it was founded as a literary society 
so many years ago.

The Alpha Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa has kept 
up its reputation of being an active fraternity. Last 
spring, it held its annual celebration of Founder's 
Day in mid- March. A program of speakers at the 
house was followed by a visit of undergraduate 
members, alumni, and friends to the shrine of the 
national fraternity — the metal seal situated on the 
south side of old North College where the fraternity 
had its beginning. After the pilgrimmage refresh- 
ments were served at the chapter house. 

During the spring, the environs of the house were 
re-landscaped, and a parking space was constructed 
in the rear of the house. At Commencement, twelve 
members were lost to the house through graduation. 

With the return to college in the fall of 1937, the 
entire house was re- decorated and repainted inside 
and out to put it in order for the fall rushing season. 
Nine freshmen and three sophomores pledged Phi 
Sig. The chapter was fortunate in having as guest 
during rushing "Pop" Clark, well known State and 
Alpha alumnus and former football coach of the 
college. Fall initiation resulted in the addition of 
four men, swelling the membership to one of the 
largest on campus. 

Beginning a winter of social activity, the Amherst 
House dance set a festive note. During the season, 
several successful "Vic" parties and the annual 
Faculty Whist Party were held. One of the chap- 
ter's five junior military majors was on the Military 
Ball committee, and will be chairman of this com- 
mittee next year. 

On February 15, 1938, the chapter was host to the 
National Grand President of the fraternity. Earl F. 
Schoening of Chicago. 

Interfratemity competition in sports was especial- 
ly keen during the fall season. Alpha reached the 
semi-finals in football and the finals in soccer, losing 
in the latter to Alpha Sigma Phi by one goal in the 
third overtime period. The winter sports season 
was not as successful. Defending champions in 
volley-ball, the chapter team was defeated in the 
semi-final game, and split two tournament basket- 
ball games. The house was fortunate, however, in 
having as members the captain and manager of the 
newly formed ski team. In addition, two of the 
brothers were chairmen of committees for the 
Winter Carnival. In all, the Alpha chapter of Phi 
Sigma Kappa has had a very successful year.

GAMMA DELTA CHAPTER 

T 

Established May 18, 1904 

National Organization Founded at the 
University of Virginia, December 10, 1869 

One Hundred and Seven Chapters 
Eighty-six Alumni Chapters 

Publication: "The Caduceus" 

Colors: Scarlet, Green and White 




In the approximate college year that this takes in, 
the history of Gamma Delta chapter of Kappa 
Sigma has been both eventful and progressive. 

Within the fraternity itself study rooms have 
been redecorated. The dining room has been re- 
modeled and attractively panelled. Partitions have 
been built around the furnace, thus making a 
furnace room and improving the game room. New 
rugs and furniture have improved the appearance 
of the main rooms. The latest acquisition is a new 
combination radio and victrola that adds much to 
the many social activities. In addition to inside 
improvements, the house was painted during the 
summer vacation. A more permanent step in the 
history of Gamma Delta was the acquiring of an 
option of an ideal building site close to the campus. 
TTiis is a definite step toward the acquiring of a 
new chapter house which expansion will make 
necessary in a few years. 

While the improvements and changes within the 
fraternity have been progressive, campus activities 
have been more eventful. In scholarship, academics, 
social activities, and athletics Kappa Sigma has been 
well in the fore. In scholarship Gamma Delta was 
fourth out of the eleven fraternities for the second 
semester of last year. In addition to the general 
scholarship, one member was elected to Phi Kappa 
Phi. 

In Interfratemity competition, Gamma Delta was 
runner-up in volley ball, winner in soccer, and 
winner of the Interfratemity Track Meet last year. 

As a result of the three aforementioned activities, 
scholarship, academics, and athletics. Kappa Sigma 
took second place in last year's annual Intefratemity 
Cup Competition, adding another cup to a pre- 
viously won cup for first place. 

This year members of Kappa Sigma have been 
active in the Horticultural Show, on the Informal 
Committee, and in the Winter Carnival. In social 
events at the fraternity, the Amherst House Dance 
and the Christmas Party were outstanding. 

Equally outstanding was the part played by Kappa 
Sigma men in college athletics. In addition to 
members on all State teams, Kappa Sigmas held 
the following captaincies: swimming, hockey and 
football. 

The aim of a college education is to develop a 
well-balanced personality; the aim of Kappa Sigma 
is to develop such a well-balanced personality based 
on good fellowship.

THETA CHI 

THETA CHAPTER 

▼ 

Established December 29, 1911 
National Organization Founded at 
Norwich University, April 10, 1856 

Fifty Chapters — Twenty-five Alumni Chapters 

Publication: "The Rattle" 

Colors: Red and White 




An intensive drive for athletic and academic 
honors culminating with the award of the Inter- 
fraternity cup has brought Theta Chi a high posi- 
tion among State College fraternities. In competi- 
tions, Theta gained first honors in the annual house 
inspection, captured the baseball crown for two 
victories late in the '37 school year, and has con- 
tinued to win semi-final berths in football, basket- 
ball, volley-ball and soccer. Theta Chi men are 
found on all varsity teams with its largest represen- 
tation being ten men on the football squad. 

The chapter led all fraternities in rushing with 
a total of thirty-one pledges. Since that time, four- 
teen of them have been initiated into the fraternity. 

Socially the house has more than held its own. 
At Amherst week-end house dances, Theta had 
the largest number of guests, some of whom came 
from places as far distant as Ohio and Florida. 
Bowery Ball, the outstanding social event in the 
chapter year, was held May 14. Johnny Newton's 
band supplied the music and guests attended 
dressed in the costumes of the early 'eighties. Under 
the direction of social chairman Bob Packard, the 
house held many "Vic" parties during the year, 
including the annual Christmas party, the tea dance 
the Saturday of the Winter Carnival and the tea 
dance following the Boston College baseball game. 

Under the direction of the four majors in land- 
scape architecture in the house, Theta is landscap- 
ing the grounds with the intention of improving the 
outside appearance of the new house. Other work 
to be done includes the surfacing of the driveway 
and remodeling of the chapter room in the house. 

Theta has a Senate member and officers in both 
the Junior and Freshmen classes. House members 
serve on the Collegian and Index staffs, and they 
have been members of committees for the Winter 
Carnival, A. B. Degree, and various dances. Four 
hold high ranks in the R. O. T. C, being promoted 
for the spring drills. A Theta is a member of the 
Honor Council while three serve on the interclass 
Athletic Board. Two members of the house were 
elected to the Maroon Key, sophomore honorary 
society. 

The Theta Chi Glee Club, under the direction of 
Dick King, gained a first place in the stunt night 
competition of the Boston Tea Party, annual frater- 
nity regional convention.

The outstanding event of the year 1937 for Sigma 
Phi Epsilon was its twenty-fifth anniversary 
banquet which was held at the Hotel Kimball on 
April 10, 1937. Among those present at this banquet 
was W. L. Phillips, one of the founders of the 
fraternity and at present the Grand Secretary. 
W. L. Phillips was this year cited by Banta's Greek 
Exchange as one of the thirteen greatest living 
fraternity Greeks. Others presents were David 
Caldwell, who represented this school in the 
Olympic Games, Albert W. Dodge, Arthur N. Ray- 
mond, and many other alumni of the College and 
of Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

The National Conclave of the fraternity, which 
was held on September 7, 8, and 9 in Cleveland, 
was attended by Dick Powers and Bill Avery of 
this chapter. Bill Avery went as the guest of the 
Philip Morris Company, for he was one of the ten 
winners of the prizes awarded by that company to 
oustanding Sig Eps. 

In athletics, Sig Ep was well represented. In 
interfraternity sports last year Sig Ep finished close 
to the top. Sigma Phi Epsilon has four men who 
are military majors, one of whom had the honor of 
escorting the honorary colonel to the Military Ball. 

There have been three extremely novel parties 
held at the Sig Ep house during the fall of 1937. 
The first of these introduced the "Big Apple" to 
the campus. Because the house was too small for 
this dance, every one moved out on the front lawn 
for an hour! Another of these parties was the barn 
dance held as "open house" on October 16. Many 
couples attended to try out bam dancing for the 
first time. 

On Amherst Week-end Sig Ep presented the 
most novel stunt of the year. At ten o'clock that 
Saturday night, twelve men from the house pre- 
sented the RUSTY BALLY (Ballet Russe de Monte 
Carlo)! The costumes were scanty and the dancers 
a bit cold, but all the spectators seemed to enjoy 
the mock ballet! 

The rest of the year was also successful, not 
only in social activities but also in all other phases 
of college life.

For twenty-five years Gamma Zeta of the Lambda 
Chi Alpha Fraternity has been prominent in the 
history of Massachusetts State College. Today we 
see our alumni outstanding in the professions of 
medicine, law, journalism, agriculture, and other 
fields of endeavor. While the former sons of 
Gamma Zeta have already won their positions in 
life, the present undergraduate body is making 
commendable accomplishments upon the campus. 

The present group has done so well in the extra- 
curricular activities which this campus offers that 
today it possesses a record of achievement second 
to no other campus group. At all times in the 
history of this fraternity at least three-fourths of 
its members have been actively engaged in such 
widely diversified activities as football, soccer, base- 
ball, track. Student Senate, Maroon Key, Adelphia, 
Roister Doisters, Glee Club, special campus com- 
mittees, class offices and social committees. Yet 
the prestige of Gamma Zeta extends even beyond 
the Massachusetts State campus in that it is con- 
sidered a leading unit within the powerful Inter- 
national Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. 

Although the house itself is, perhaps, one of the 
older houses upon the campus, it is, nevertheless, 
one of the most completely appointed dormitories at 
Massachusetts State. Yearly purchases of furniture 
and accessories insure Lambda Chi of comfortable 
and presentable accommodations. Prudent house 
management has kept the house in an excellent 
state of repair, and today the maintenance costs 
are exceedingly slight. 

Execution of the plans which have already 
materialized will call for the complete renovation, 
remodeling, and refurnishing of the present struc- 
ture, offering suitable accommodations for forty-five 
men. Re-building will commence within a year. 

The personnel of Lambda Chi Alpha consists of 
sixty-one men — forty-five members, and sixteen 
pledges. Although ten men were lost by gradua- 
tion this June, the initiation of fifteen candidates 
in April insured the fraternity of maintaining its 
maximum house strength. Restricted pledging has 
assured this group men of high quality who will 
continue to uphold the high traditions and accom- 
plishments of Lambda Chi Alpha.

Gamma Chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi, an out- 
growth of the old College Shakespearean Club, de- 
veloped from 1913 to the present from a strictly 
literary club to a group with cosmopolitan interests. 

Winning second place in scholarship for the 
second semester of 1936-37, and receiving a com- 
plete house renovation both outside and inside, the 
fraternity began the first semester of 1937-38 with 
a strong membership of twenty-four pledges. 
Thoroughly equipped for the interfraternity sport 
contests, Alpha Sig entered the lists for football 
and soccer. Winning the soccer championship and 
capturing second place in football, the fraternity 
completed the fall competition in interfraternity ath- 
letics. Although somewhat handicapped in volley- 
ball. Alpha Sigma Phi won the basketball cham- 
pionship, thus ending the first semester of 1937-38 
with the highest number of points among the eleven 
fraternities at Massachusetts State. 

Alpha Sigma Phi also has an adequate repre- 
sentation in the varsity sports of football, cross- 
country, basketball and baseball. 

In addition to the usual "Vic" parties and the 
dances of Amherst Week-End, this fraternity held 
a Spring Formal and Alumni Card Party in the 
Spring of 1937; but in 1938 the Spring Party was 
restricted to a formal dance. 

The highlight of the social season was the banquet 
on March 12, 1938, celebrating the twenty-fifth 
anniversary of the Gamma chapter of Alpha Sigma 
Phi. At a reunion of such unusual significance, the 
spirit of fraternal life shows in all the great tradi- 
tions of fellowship and brotherly love. Preceding 
the Initiation Banquet, Gamma held an alumni 
reception at the chapter house, welcoming the re- 
turn of the largest alumni gathering which has been 
held in many years. 

At the National Convention of Alpha Sigma Phi 
held in Chicago, Gamma chapter was represented 
by delegates Phillip B. Anderson and John Town- 
send. The significance of such a gathering of 
fraternity delegations lies in the fact that the 
subsidiary chapters of the national organization are 
drawn into the parent body, revivified and sent 
forth with renewed spirit and a sense of national 
unity.

The most important event of the year for Alpha 
Epsilon Pi was the moving of the chapter from its 
old house on Crosby Avenue to its new home on 
Fraternity Row. Plans were completed in June, 
1937; and at the beginning of the school year in 
the fall of 1937, after the house had been com- 
pletely redecorated and refurnished. Alpha Epsilon 
Pi was ready for a happy and prosperous regime 
in its beautiful home "on the Row" 

In spite of the loss of outstanding seniors through 
graduation, Alpha Epsilon Pi was still well repre- 
sented in the various campus activities, both ath- 
letic and academic. In the Interfrateniity Com- 
petition, Alpha Epsilon Pi was again among the 
leaders. 

Throughout the year, numerous "Vic" dances 
were held. The most successful dance of the year, 
however, was the one held on Amherst Week- End. 
The house was gaily decorated, and was filled to 
overflowing by many alumni as well as under- 
graduates. The feature of the night was, of course, 
the "Big Apple." 

Another outstanding event for Alpha Epsilon Pi, 
was the annual Convention held at the Hotel 
Pennsylvania in New York City on New Year's 
week-end. Phi chapter was represented by Don 
Silverman, Al Carp, and Bernard Kohn. 

On March 5, Alpha Epsilon Pi held its annual 
induction. Three freshmen were initiated. After 
the ceremony, a banquet was held at the "Lord 
Jeffery Inn". The speakers at this affair included 
Dr. Goldberg and Dr. Fraker. At the conclusion 
of the banquet, everybody adjourned to the house 
to enjoy a gay "Vic" dance. 

Not only in social activities, but also in other 
fields the members cooperated to make their frat- 
ernity life successful.

The annual initiation and alumni banquet of the 
Mu Chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho was held on 
March 20, 1937, at the Hotel Northampton. This 
banquet marked the largest turn-out of alumni in 
recent years. Nine new initiates were also present. 

Alpha Gamma Rho placed first among all national 
fraternities at State in scholarship for the 1936-37 
semester with an average of 78.48. The chapter also 
reached the finals in the interfraternity baseball 
competition, but lost the final and decisive game to 
Theta Chi. 

The members of the house started the new college 
year off right by returning early to redecorate the 
interior of the house, which had been rewired dur- 
ing the summer. The kitchen equipment was also 
improved by the purchase of a new refrigerator. 
As a result of the fall rushing season we obtained 
thirteen freshmen pledges. 

In interfraternity sports we were less fortunate. 
In touch football we won the first game, but were 
defeated by a slight margin in the second game. 
In the soccer competition we also won one and lost 
one. In basketball we made a very poor showing, 
losing both games, but in volleyball we reached the 
finals only to lose to another strong team. 

Socially, Alpha Gamma Rho has had a big year. 
Of course, the Amherst house party was the biggest 
social event. The house was decorated in an eve- 
ning sky motif and "The Georgians" of Worcester 
provided the music. We have also held our share 
of "Vic" parties this past season. A very successful 
house function was the alumni-freshmen smoker. 
This brought into closer understanding our alumni, 
pledges, and members. Perhaps the most important 
outcome of this affair was the forming of an alumni 
chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho at the Massachusetts 
State College. We have now received our charter 
and have a full-fledged alumni chapter. 

The men of Alpha Gamma Rho have been very 
active in campus affairs. Because of the snowless 
winter carnival, we were denied the opportunity of 
competing for the snow sculpturing cup which we 
won last year. The financial condition of Alpha 
Gamma Rho is very good; and, to sum it all up. 
Alpha Gamma Rho has had a very successful and 
enjoyable year.

The history of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at Massa- 
chusetts State College is at present not very vol- 
uminous. It may be considered as having its be- 
ginning in the Spring of 1937, at which time the 
local fraternity of Kappa Epsilon presented its 
petition for acceptance into the national fraternity. 
This petition sponsored by Leon C. Stowell, now 
a trustee of the national organization, was heartily 
received by its national officers as well as by all 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapters. The actual decision, 
however, was not to be made until the assembling 
of the National Convention of S. A. E. at Chicago 
in August. To this meeting four representatives of 
Kappa Epsilon were sent. These men were: Edward 
H. Glass, Douglas D. Milne, Ellsworth Phelps, Jr., 
and Edward B. Willard, who presented the case for 
acceptance in person. And a very able job they did. 
On August twenty-eight the National Convention in 
session unanimously declared the acceptance of the 
local Kappa Epsilon Fraternity as the Massachusetts 
Kappa Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. 

The former members of Kappa Epsilon will long 
remember having received post cards bearing the 
single word, "accepted." This meant that they were 
about to become members in one of the nation's 
strongest and largest fraternities, a distinction that 
amply repaid the efforts expended in seeking ad- 
mission. 

The early months in the fall of 1937 were filled 
with excitement and anticipation; for the date of 
informal initiation and installation had been set 
for October thirtieth. Slowly the date approached. 
Preparations reached a climax; the long-awaited 
day arrived. With representatives from nearly every 
New England chapter present, the "informal" initia- 
tion began and lasted throughout the morning. In 
the afternoon the guests attended the Mass. State- 
Amherst football game. In the evening, the formal 
initiation and installation took place. Thus the 
Massachusetts Kappa chapter, the 110th of Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon, came into existence. 

Since October thirtieth, the chapter has initiated 
nine undergraduates and four members of its 
alumni, including Doctor G. Chester Crampton, 
Professor of Entomology. The fraternity has several 
members active in many phases of athletics and 
academics. As a new chapter of S. A. E., Mass. 
Kappa, believing that a college fraternity should 
justify its existence not only by giving men a home 
and companions, but also by helping to develop their 
potential abilities, has established monthly speaking 
contests under the direction of Brother Garrison, 
Head of the Department of Public Speaking of 
Amherst College. Based on such sound accomplish- 
ments, the future history of S. A. E. at Mass. State 
is full of promise.

TAU EPSILON PHI 

TAU PI CHAPTER 

T 

Established March 12, 1938 

Formerly Phi Lambda Tau 

Founded February 14, 1934 

National Organization Founded at 

Columbia University, October 10, 1910 

Forty Chapters — 35 Alumni Chapters 

Publication: "The Plume" 

Colors: Lavender and White 




In May 1937, the members of Phi Lambda Tau 
unanimously voted to become legally organized and 
established as a corporation. 

The headlines of the first issue of the Collegian 
the following September announced the high schol- 
astic standing of Phi Lambda Tau for the previous 
spring. It was the seventh consecutive semester 
that Phi Lambda Tau was ranked highest among 
all the fraternities on campus. Also, four of its 
seniors were honored by election to Phi Kappa 
Phi. 

Upon return to their Eames Avenue house in 
September, the fraters were engaged in improving 
its usefulness and appearance. Several pieces of 
new furniture were added and the entire house was 
redecorated. 

During the fall season, the fraternity took active 
part in interfraternity athletics. In basketball, 
volleyball, and soccer the number of defeats and 
victories was about equal. 

The social activities of the house included several 
informal dances and smokers. The most elaborate 
and colorful of the dances was the annual Round 
Robin, held on the Amherst week-end of October 
29th. In keeping with the Hallowe'en spirit, the 
house was decorated with a truly "Aggie" barnyard 
scene and a memorable field scene in orange and 
blue. Less elaborate but equally successful were 
the several smokers, which were characterized by 
companionable discussion and singing. Most note- 
worthy was the smoker held during the early part 
of February of 1938 in celebration of the fourth 
anniversary of the fraternity and in honor of its 
founders. 

Upon the unanimous decision of the fratres. Dr. 
Nathan Rakieten of the Physiology Department was 
approached on the matter of his becoming affiliated 
with Phi Lambda Tau as a faculty advisor. He 
expressed an earnest interest in the fraternity and 
a desire to offer his services. 

The main business of Phi Lambda Tau during 
the winter was the petitioning of the National 
Fraternity, Tau Epsilon Phi, for membership. After 
the approvals of the Student Life Committee and 
President Baker were received, final arrangements 
were made with the central office of Tau Epsilon 
Phi. On January 11, 1938, the local fraternity was 
formally pledged as the Tau Pi chapter of this 
national fraternity. All members and pledges were 
included in the ceremony, which was conducted by 
representatives of the national office. The final in- 
duction ceremony and banquet were planned for 
March 12, 1938. 

The old local organization of Phi Lambda Tau 
looks forward hopefully to an active future as a 
member of the nation-wide organization of Tau 
Epsilon Phi.

INTERSORORITY COUNCIL 



The Intersorority Council, which is composed of tv/o representatives from each 
of the five sororities, meets once a month to regulate business and social relationships 
and to promote harmony and good will between the sororities. Besides supervising 
the rushing rules, the Council has charge of such social functions as the Round Robin, 
Patroness' Tea, Mother and Dad's Day entertainments, the Sing and Declamation Con- 
test, and the annual Intersorority Ball. 

The Council annually presents two plaques, one for the sorority maintaining the 
highest scholastic average, and the other for the sorority winning the Sing and 
Declamation Contest. This year the scholarship plaque was awarded to Sigma Iota, 
and the latter plaque went to Phi Zeta. 

The Ball, which is always a highlight of the spring social season, is open to all 
co-eds. The dance this spring was held on April 22. Many couples spent an enjoyable 
evening dancing to the popular music furnished by Ken Reeves and his Orchestra. 

At the banquet, which is held in May, the junior members of the Intersorority 
Council receive gold keys.

Founded at Massachusetts State College 

October, 1931 

Colors: Blue and Silver 




The purpose of the sorority is to develop charac- 
ter in achieving scholarship, in strengthening friend- 
ships and in maintaining high moral standards. After 
it was founded in 1930, Alpha Lambda Mu's first 
reports are packed with evidence of enthusiasm, 
good fun, and real sisterhood. In the fall of 1934, 
the sorority established its first home at 70 Lincoln 
Avenue. The following year, 1935, found the soror- 
ity at 51 Phillips Street, which is the present resi- 
dence. Last fall, the sorority pledged fourteen 
freshmen. The pledge formal, which is an annual 
affair, was held on January 15 at the Lord Jeffery 
Inn. The Knights of Rhythm furnished the music. 
On January 8 we held an alumni banquet at the 
Farley Club house. Thirteen former members at- 
tended and an enjoyable time was had by all. 
Several "Vic" parties, sleighrides, and banquets have 
made this year a memorable and an enjoyable one.

LAMBDA DELTA MU 

ALPHA CHAPTER 



Founded at Massachusetts State College 
October, 1931 

Colors: Green and Gold 



Lambda Delta Mu was founded in the fall of 1930 
when the old open sorority, Delta Phi Gamma, was 
broken up to form three separate smaller groups. 
This sorority was founded with the aun of forming 
deep friendships among girls bound together by 
mutual interests in academic and social activities. 

In the fall of 1934, Lambda Delta Mu secured a 
house on 4 Sunset Court, which it has proudly 
maintained ever since, and which has consistently 
won places in house inspections. 

From the beginning it has been the purpose of 
the sorority to maintain a well-balanced group that 
will cooperate among themselves and with the rest 
of the college. It has been rather successful in 
carrying out this purpose, judging from the schol- 
astic, academic, and social prominence of its mem- 
bers. In addition to its own social functions, among 
which are formals, teas, and "Vic" parties, it co- 
operates with the rest of the college to make such 
events as Dad's Day and Mother's Day successful 
by providing entertainment of all kinds.

SIGMA BETA CHI 

ALPHA CHAPTER 

T 

Founded at Massachusetts State College 

October, 1931 

Colors: Blue, Black and White 




In the 1930's a club was formed on campus open 
to any girls who wished to join. This group divided 
into two sections, one of which became Sigma 
Beta Chi. Since then it has rapidly grown in num- 
bers and in spirit. 

Last spring Sigma Beta Chi received a plaque 
for winning the Intersorority Sing and Declama- 
tion Contest. On April 23 a banquet was held for 
the alumnae at the Mount Pleasant Inn. 

In the fall the house was materially improved by 
the addition of new furniture, curtains, and rugs in 
time for rushing. Twelve freshmen were pledged. 

Members of Sigma Beta Chi have shown leader- 
ship in various campus activities, such as student 
government, various clubs, and literary publica- 
tions. They have also been prominent in social 
affairs. 

In the sorority itself there have been many novel 
"Vic" parties in addition to two annual formal 
dances. But these social functions did not prevent 
the sorority from winning second place among the 
sororities in scholarship last year, thus approaching 
its ideal of well-balanced development for its mein- 
bers.

PHI ZETA 

ALPHA CHAPTER 

T 

Founded at Massachusetts State College 
February 11, 1932 

Colors: Black and White 




Phi Zeta Sorority was founded at Massachusetts 
State College on February 11, 1932, with nineteen 
charter members. In 1933 the sorority occupied its 
first house on Lincoln Avenue. This same year the 
first issue of the sorority publication, "The Philum', 
was published, and the custom of having an 
Alumnae Banquet before the Amherst- State foot- 
ball game was established. 

In 1934 the sorority moved to its present home on 
Pleasant Street. Two Alumnae Chapters, the Alpha 
Chapter in Boston and the Beta Chapter in Spring- 
field, were formed, and the Phi Zeta Mother's Club 
was organized. 

The list of twelve patrons, patronesses, and ad- 
visors, chosen from faculty members, was completed 
in 1936-37. 

In the fall of 1937, Phi Zeta took in eighteen fresh- 
men pledges, making a total number of fifty-two 
persons connected with the sorority. Phi Zeta 
ranked first among the sororities in scholarship at 
the end of the first semester. 

Phi Zeta has always taken an active part in all 
academic activities and since 1934 has continually 
won house inspection. This year Phi Zeta won the 
Intersorority Sing and Declamation Contest held 
in the Memorial Buildmg on AprU 13. The out- 
standing social function of the sorority is the an- 
nual Pledge Formal, which is always held at the 
Lord Jeffery Inn. It has become the annual custom 
for the underclass sisters to give a Farewell Banquet 
for the Seniors of the sorority during Commence- 
ment week-end.

Adelphia is the sole senior honorary 
society at Massachusetts State College. 
It is composed of men chosen for their 
outstanding work on campus by the de- 
parting members of Adelphia. 

In May 1937, the departing Adelphia 
chose Herbert E. Brown, John S. Hoar, 
Mitchell F. NeJame, George Niden, Fred- 
erick J. Sievers, Donald L. Silverman, and 
Richard W. Towle to continue as mem- 
bers of Adelphia. A faculty member, 
George "Red" Emery, was also elected to 
the society. 

The group commenced the 1937-38 col- 
lege year by sponsoring a series of rallies 



before the important home football games, 
— those with Bowdoin, Amherst, and 
Tufts. A novel combination of fireworks, 
torchlight parades, and excellent speakers 
plus the customary bonfire, singing, cheer- 
ing, and band music helped to make the 
rallies a success. Among the outstand- 
ing speakers were Frederick D. Griggs, a 
Trustee; M. O. Lanphear, Assistant Dean; 
Eb Caraway, Head Coach; Guy Glatfelter, 
and Doctor Bradley. 

Adelphia sponsored a highly successful 
Red Cross drive, collecting for the worthy 
cause a sum over $200.

During the past year the Senate, student 
governing body composed of juniors and 
seniors at Massachusetts State College, 
made many important contributions to the 
Avelfare of the student body. It participated 
in many campus activities, managing a 
freshman-sophomore track meet last 
spring and Razoo night this fall. It took 
disciplinary measures with reactionary 
freshmen when necessary, revised class 
election rules to prevent campus politics, 
and made appointments to student com- 
mittees and sent delegates to two college 
conventions. As representatives of the 
student body, it voted for the return of 



the Senior Fence in front cl South Col- 
lege. 

In addition to handling student affairs, 
the Senate made many material contri- 
butions. It gave the infirmary sixteen 
earphones for the radio and an electric 
razor. It purchased uniform and baton 
for the drum major of the band, made 
part payment on new jackets for Adel- 
phia, and donated $10 to the Red Cross 
Drive Committee and $100 to the Winter 
Carnival Committee. 

Thus the Senate has fulfilled its func- 
tion as the student governing body.

The Maroon Key is an organization of 
ten sophomores elected by their class. The 
members are chosen from eighteen can- 
didates which are selected by the Senate 
from a list of thirty-two nominees sub- 
mitted by a forum of fraternity and non- 
fraternity men. 

The Maroon Key acts as host to visiting 
athletic teams and to other visitors to 
the Campus. It also gives counsel to fresh- 
men in regard to their conduct. 

This honorary society has chapters in 
many of the leading colleges of the United 



States, the name being determined by 
the college color. During the past few 
years there has been an increasing spirit 
of brotherhood among the societies in 
these colleges. Rensselaer Polytechnic 
Institute has expressed their appreciation 
of the service rendered to them by our 
Maroon Key, and Bowdoin commending 
the efficiency of the Key society not only 
at Massachusetts State College but at 
other colleges, has expressed a desire to 
form a like organization.

In its eighteenth year at Massachusetts 
State College, the Honor System as a 
method of conducting examinations is one 
of the most significant and far-reaching 
institutions on the campus. Throughout 
its history it has periods of great efficacy 
and periods of indifference on the part of 
the students. Its history during the past 
year has been one of renewed enthu- 
siasm and energy. Cases treated (up to 
March 1938) numbered eleven. At a 



forum held on February 24, faculty and 
student opinion about the system was 
expressed. It was overwhelming in sup- 
port of the system. The O'Connell case 
was a highlight in the year's work, a case 
which asserted the power of the Honor 
Council to interpret its constitution even 
above faculty ruling. A new liberalizing 
trend is seen in the future of the system, 
together ^vith a spirit of cooperation.

The W. S. G. A. includes in its member- 
ship every woman student of the four 
year course at the college. The seven 
officers forming a council are chosen by 
the vote of all the co-eds. This council 
represents the interests of the Student 
Government on the campus and also acts 
as an advisory and governing body for its 
members, its decisions subject to faculty 
approval. Each year two representatives 
of the council attend a conference wtih 
girls from other co-educational colleges 
in New England, to discuss matters of stu- 
dent government and to bring back new 
ideas to this campus. Marian Becher and 



Martha Kaplinsky were the delegates last 
Spring. 

The W. S. G. A. presents a scholarship 
in the spring to a senior girl with out- 
standing scholastic ability and personality. 
Jessie Kinsman was the winner of this 
award last year. The W. S. G. A. helps 
the freshman to become acquainted in 
the fall by sponsoring teas in the Abbey, 
and by giving a co-ed party. The Council 
also sponsors a Mother's Day weekend in 
May, at which the girls entertain their 
mothers with athletic events, a tea, a 
banquet, and a program of formal enter- 
tainment.

OFFICERS 

President, Lawrence Levinson

Secretary, D. Roberta Walkey 



The Religious Council at Massachu- 
setts State is comprised of three repre- 
sentatives of the three religious organ- 
izations on campus: the Newman Club, 
the Christian Federation, and the Men- 
orah Club. The Religious Council ar- 
ranges and sponsors the Sunday evening 
Vesper services in the Memorial Build- 
ing, as well as an annual series of lec- 
tures for the student group. This year. 
Professor James T. Cleland of Amherst 
College gave three well-attended lectures 
on Feb. 17, 18, and 20 on "The Basis of 
the Christian Religion". 

A significant innovation in Vespers this 
year was the service conducted by the 



Student Religious Council on Sunday, 
March 20, at which a representative of 
each of the three religious organizations 
presented very interesting lectures. The 
three lectures were: "The Message of 
Amos for Today"; "The Message of Jesus 
for Today"; and "The Message of New- 
man for Today"; which were given by 
Lawrence Levinson, '38; Robert W. Gage, 
'38; and William G. Foley, '40; respect- 
ively. 

This service with the three representa- 
tives speaking side by side from the same 
platform is symbolic of the harmonious 
functioning of the Student Religious 
Council.

The Academic Activities Board is a 
good example of cooperation between 
students, faculty, and alumni at the Col- 
lege. The Board is composed of two fac- 
ulty appointees, two alumni appointees, 
the general manager of Academics, the 
President of the College, and business 



managers from each of the student organ- 
izations represented. The Academic 
Activities Board is the group which deter-

THE 1938 INDEX 



In June 1937, the Index Board was reorganized. 
The Board changed from a Junior Board to one 
composed of members from the three upper 
classes. In this .system, the seniors hold the 
major positions, while the juniors and sopho- 
mores act as assistants. 

Under the new arrangement, many develop- 
ments have been made. Extension of competi- 
tion has been insured and the interest in the 
Index has been more widely distributed through 
the student body. The Index has become a 
major academic activity, with the successful staff 
member given opportunity for participation dur- 



ing most of his college career. Continuity of 
experience and spirit in the Board is assured, 
and there is a better representation of the 
classes in the recording of college activities. 

In addition to the reorganization of the staff 
last June, there was a restatement of general 
policy. Application of this policy has tended to 
make the Index a continuous history of college 
events from the undergraduate point of view. 
The Index also has undertaken to record the 
less spectacular, but often the more important, 
forces now shaping the Massachusetts State 
College of the future.

THE 1938 INDEX 



The success of this book is due to the co- 
operative endeavor of all the members of the 
Board. Special recognition should be given to 
those who were most instrumental in carrying 
this book to successful completion. The Board 
wishes to thank the following; Ruth Bixby, for 
her excellent handling and expansion of the 
literary department; Lane Giddings, whose ser- 
vices were indispensable, for his outstanding 
work in making a photographic Index a reality, 
and also for his willingness to assist in all other 
phases of the work; Ann Gilbert, for her super- 



vision of the art department and her collabora- 
tion with both Mr. Giddings and Mr. Fisher in 
selecting and arranging photographs; and Myron 
Fisher, for his clever sketches and artistic ideas. 

We present the 1938 Index as a history of 
Massachusetts State College during the year of 
1937-38. Through literary endeavor and photo- 
graphic representations, we hope to aid the 
readers in recalling to mind the pleasant inci- 
dents and outstanding events in their college 
lives.

COLLEGIAN 

NOTE: A critique of New England Collegiate 
news publications, in the Colleg/iile Revieiv. char- 
acterizes the Collegian as: "Solid, substantial, and 
with a definite editorial policy." 

The ALusach/isetts Collegian has occupied 
a well-deserved position of prominence at 
Massachusetts State College during the past 
year. Published weekly, the paper is recog- 
nized as representing the student body and 
voicing its opinions. The Collegian has been 
rated highly in several surveys of collegiate 
weeklies, receiving a "First Class Honor 
Rating" by the Associated Collegiate Press. 

The Collegian, read by students, faculty, 
administration, and alumni, keeps them in- 
formed about student and faculty events, as 
well as the general development of the 
College. 

In its editorial column, the paper presents 
the attitude of the student body. During the 
past year, the Collegian has continued its 
support of the movement in favor of grant- 
ing an A. B. degree and on January 19, is- 
sued an "extra" at the close of the Trustees 
meeting at which action on the degree was 
again postponed. The Collegian again ex- 
pressed itself in favor of a reading and study 
period before final examinations. The paper 
has followed closely the movement toward 
the establishment of a "University of Massa- 
chusetts", stimulating interest in having such 
a "University" established at Amherst. The 
Collegian cooperated with the Brown Daily 
Herald in its nation-wide peace poll on col- 
lege campuses. 

Co-operating with the committee in charge 
of preparations for the Diamond Jubilee 
celebration of the College, a special twelve 
page issue of the Collegian was prepared 
under Editor Julian H. Katzeff. This special 
edition which appeared on February 10, at- 
tempted to give a bird's-eye view of the Col- 
lege — "a survey of its growth and develop- 
ment during the past seventy-five years, its 
present status, and its potential value in the 
future." Other "extras" of the Collegian 
included one about the Winter Carnival 
week-end, and another about the Model 
League of Nations which was held at Massa- 
chusetts State College this year.

COLLEGIAN QUARTERLY 



"Blessed by the administration, the 
academic activities board, and the depart- 
ment of languages and literature, and 
financed and edited by the Collegian, the 
first number of the Collegian Quarterly, 
a literary supplement, is appended to to- 
day's issue." 

With these editorial words, the Colle- 
gian Quarterly, a two-page experiment, 
came into the limelight at the beginning 
of the second semester of the year 
1936-37. 

To Kenwood Ross, '37, go the honors for 
providing a base upon which the Quar- 
terly could be planned and published. 
Mr. Ross contacted some sixty colleges in 
an attempt to determine the best methods 
of producing a college literary publication. 
After a year and a half of research, 
enough information was gathered and the 
actual work was begun. 

Shirley Bliss Goldberg, '38, was ap- 
pointed Editor and Sidney Rosen, '39, As- 
sociate Editor. The policy of the Quarterly 
was clearly defined: "to publish under 
student editorship undergraduate, faculty, 



and alumni creative work four times a 
year." Two successful issues during the 
semester proved that Mass. State had 
plenty of latent literary talent, in spite of 
any comments as to "farmers" or "Aggie". 

The year 1937-38 saw a change in the 
editorial board. Sidney Rosen, '39, be- 
came editor, and Janet W. Campbell, '40, 
Associate Editor. The first issue also 
marked a change in the Quarterly itself; 
it had grown from two to four pages, and 
it was made more attractive by the ad- 
dition of cuts. The second issue of the year 
saw even a greater change; the size was 
reduced by one-third, and two more pages 
were added. 

The Collegian Quarterly is no longer an 
experiment — it is now well established. 
It has grown rapidly, and shall, with the 
College, continue to grow until, perhaps, 
it becomes an independent campus activ- 
ity. The presence of a course in Creative 
Writing in the college curriculum has 
shown the need for an outlet for student 
creative Uterary work; the Collegian 
Quarterly is the answer.

It has often been said that entertainment of the 
audience is the first requirement of a dramatic 
presentation. That the maxim is true, at least 
to the extent that failure to hold the attention 
of the audience renders a play worthless, few 
dramatic enthusiasts will deny. If, however, 
entertainment is the first requirement of drama, 
it is likewise the lowest. A play must rise above 
the level of mere entertainment in order to be 
of lasting interest. To a large degree contem- 
porary drama of the stage and screen does not 
so rise. Shakespeare's plays, on the other hand, 
though they provide some of the richest of 
entertainment, attain the heights of artistic 
achievement largely through other values. 

College di'amatic societies, favored by audiences 
of higher than average intellectual capacity, are 
in a position to take unto themselves an elevated 
mandate: to provide with their entertainment 
some morsels of spiritual nourishment which 
may prove worth the while of the audience, and 
to test new and interesting dramatic forms which 
the professional theatre does not dare to attempt. 
In the adoption of such a mandate the Roister 
Doisters are no exception. A glance at their 
activities of the last two years may serve to 
indicate their policy. 

The Nighl of Janu^iry 16. a modern murder 
mystery, was rendered something of a psycho- 
logical experiment by the presentation of two 
dramatically different readings of the same evi- 
dence, the reactions of the audience and jury 
being tested by independent verdicts. The 



program of three one-act plays at Commence- 
ment, 1937, was in recognition and encourage- 
ment of the promising work of an amateur 
playwright, Cornelius A. Wood. Make-Believe 
Angeline. given its premiere by the Roister 
Doisters in the Bjy Stale Revue, was written 
by Louis Breault, '37, a former member of the 
Society. Not W^ithout Hope, written by the 
director of the Society, involved the reproduc- 
tion of considerable historical detail not only as 
to fact but as to character and mood, and cannot 
fail to be of significance to members of the 
audience in their future associations with the 
two great poets, Wordsworth and Coleridge. 
Ralph Roister Dotster. chosen by the Society for 
the 1938 Commencement, holds an important 
place in literature as the first regular English 
comedy, is the source of the Society's name, and 
has peculiar interest in connection with the 
Diamond Jubilee celebration of the founding of 
the College. In addition to producing these 
plays, the Society has sponsored as speakers 
Walter Pritchard Eaton, and Mr. Kennedy of the 
cast of Orson Welles' modern Julitis Caesar. It 
has also visited Springfield en niasse to see 
Othello and the Pulitzer Prize play, Yoti Cant 
Take It With You. 

The Roister Doisters are sincere in trying to 
follow a policy which offers educational and 
cultural values as well as entertainmer)t, on a 
plane as high as the intellectual level of the 
College — and the Society — will permit.

The band this year completed the most suc- 
cessful season since its reorganization three years 
ago. The fall program included, besides the 
customary appearances at all of the home foot- 
ball games, a trip to the night game with the 
Coast Guard Academy at New London, where- 
the Band combined with the Service Band for a 
street parade and concert late in the afternoon. 
At the Bay State Revue it presented a concert 
program. The Band did much in the way of 
radio work with a half hour broadcast over a 
Springfield Station on Alumni Night and with 
the making of electrical transcriptions of college 
songs to be used on other college radio programs. 



[228} 



Bxuid 



The winter period was marked by an appear- 
ance on the Winter Carnival program and also 
a concert at the High School Basketball Tourney. 
The annual convocation program was held earlier 
than usual this year, on February 24. This 
concert featured solos by Miss Erma Alvord, '40, 
on the Chimes; Vernon Coutu, '38, on the Trum- 
pet; and Conrad Hemond, Jr., '38, on the Bass 
Horn. 

The spring season consisted of the feature 
concert of the year which is presented annually 
as a part of the Mother's Day celebration. This 
concert was the last public appearance in the 
Band of six senior members who are all charter 
members of the reorganized band and have 
played with the group for four years. They are 
Edward Clapp, Vernon Coutu, Richard Mabie, 
Lane Giddings, Harold Hemond and Conrad 
Hemond. Other events on the spring program 
included an appearance at the Diamond Jubilee 
Celebration, radio appearances, short trips, a 
combined concert and dance held late in May. 

The greatest innovation of the year was the 
introduction of two co-ed Drum Majors into the 
personnel of the band, as assistants to senior 
Drum Major Stanley Bozek. The two girls, who 
were chosen as a result of competition in which 
fifteen young women participated, were Miss 
Erma Alvord and Miss Alberta Johnson, both 
of the Class of 1940. These two were trained 
for their fine performances at the Amherst and 
Tufts games, respectively, by Drum Major Bozek. 




Other innovations were the adoption by vote 
of the Band of a Constitution of management, 
thus completing the formal reorganization of the 
band started four years ago; and the awarding 
of emblems for service in the Band. The Band 
also received an increase in appropriation from 
the Student activities taxes which was used to 
purchase some new instruments, uniforms and 
music.

Under the direction of Frank B. Stratton, the 
college orchestra has played for several success- 
ful seasons, giving an annual spring concert, 
assisting at the production of the operetta, 
Ruddigore. and playing for the Annual Bacca- 
laureate and Commencement exercises for the 
respective years of 1937 and 1938. During the 
season of 1936-37 the Orchestra assisted at 
several informal concerts given by the Com- 
bined Music Clubs, and accompanied the Glee 
Clubs in their presentation of the operetta, 
Utopia Limited. 



THE COMBINED MUSIC CLUBS 



In the Fall of 1936 the three music clubs, the 
Women's Glee Club, the Men's Glee Club, and 
the Orchestra, combined under the management 
of one board, consisting of the Manager and 
Assistant Manager of each club. The success 



of this combination has been demonstrated by 
the joint production of the operetta, Utopia 
Limited, in 1937, and by the later production, in 
1938, of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, Rud- 
digore (or The Witch's Curse).

Of the three Gilbert and Sullivan operettas 
presented by the musical clubs in recent years, 
popular as well as critical approval has definitely 
placed "Kuddigore" as the best work done so far. 
Much of the credit for the success of "Ruddigore" 
is due to the work of Mr. Frank B. Stratton. 
The careful choice of an appropriate cast, the 
excellent vocal and acting ability displayed, and 
the technical excellence of production were also 
contributing factors toward success. 

The story of "Kuddigore" presented a number 
of difficulties that had to be overcome. There 
were two roles that required the actors to com- 
pletely change their character: The part of 
"Robin Oakapple", taken by Ivan Cousins, '39, 
demanded a change from a bashful, hesitant 
nature to one of villainy; the other role, that of 
the wicked, scheming "Sir Despard Murgatroyd" 
was well handled by Albert Sullivan, '40, espec- 
ially in his transformation to a respectable, mild 
citizen. Marian Maschin, '39, as "Mad Margaret" 
and Myron Hager, '40, as "Richard Dauntless" 



presented creditable performances both m sing- 
ing as well as acting. Among the leads, Barbara 
Strode, '38, displayed the outstanding feminine 
voice, while Isadore Cohen, '40, took high honors 
with what was probably the best male voice. 
The support given by the other characters and 
the orchestra were important in making the 
operetta a high-rating production. 

Another obstacle was found in the second act, 
when the ancestors of the House of Ruddigore 
were to come to life by stepping from picture 
frames. The life-like work done on the portraits 
by Mr. James Roberston of the Landscape Ar- 
chitecture department was largely responsible 
for the effectiveness of this scene. This added 
to the weird effect of the scene and made it 
one of the most impressive parts of the operetta. 

It can be said that the excellent presentation 
of "Ruddigore" has set a high standard for pro- 
ductions to come, and the increasing importance 
of the musical clubs will undoubtedly sei-ve to 
make future productions even more successful.

Under the direction of Mr. Frank B. Stratton, 
the Men's Glee Club has given very successful 
concerts for several years, both on campus and 
on tours. In 1936, for example, the Club, in 
conjunction with the College Radio Program, 
presented a few numbers over Station W.B.Z. 
in Springfield. This broadcast met with such 
favor, that the club was invited to give a similar 
concert from Station W.G.Y., Schenectady, N. Y. 
En route, stops were made at Cummington and 
North Adams, where the Club presented musical 
programs of great variety. In 1937, the Club 
confined its travels within the boundaries of 
Massachusetts. At the present writing, proposed 
concerts are scheduled in Boston, Cummington, 
Athol, and Schenectady. 



As has been the custom, the Men's Glee Club 
took part this year in the annual Social Union 
program sponsored by the Musical Clubs. For 
their effective work in this program they re- 
ceived great praise in campus circles. They 
sang the following five numbers: 

"Ave Verum" Mozart 

"De Animals A'Comin' " Bartholomew 

"Ode to Big Business' Mason 

"The Long Day Closes" Sullivan 

"Landsighting" Grieg 

In line also, with the musical work on campus, 
the Club has taken a prominent part in establish- 
ing ^ Gilbert and Sullivan tradition which began 
in 1936 with the presentation of "Trial by Jury", 
followed by 'Utopia Limited'' in 1937. This 
year, the Club participated in the presentation 
of "Riiddigore'' . a performance which won the 
acclaim of all who saw it, and it is sincerely 
hoped that this presentation has won a host of 
new Gilbert and Sullivan admirers. 

The future of the Men's Glee Club is bright 
indeed, and is a true reflection of the talent 
which the men of Massachusetts State possess 
in things cultural.

The Women's Glee Club was founded in 1934, 
and since that time it has achieved a position 
of importance in the musical activities of the 
college. Early in the year 1937 the club com- 
bined with the Orchestra and Men's Glee Club 
to be governed under the board of the Com- 
bined Musical Clubs. In the spring of 1937, the 
Women's Club, combined with the others, gave 
concerts at Sunderland and Belchertown. 

In September, 1937, the Women's Glee Club 
started the year with thirty-five members. They 



gave a short program in the Old Chapel in con- 
junction with a play written by Barbara Strode. 
This program was repeated by them in one of 
the Tuesday afternoon Fine Arts Programs in 
November. 

The Women's Glee Club sang six numbers in 
the Social Union of April 8, 1938: 

"Sapphic Ode" Brahms 

"O Can Ye Sew Cushions Bantock 

"Maidens of Sandomir" Moussorgsky 

Prayer, from 

"Hansel and Gretel" Humperdinck 

"As Torrents in Summer" Elgar 

"Twenty-Eighteen" English Folksong 

The women's chorus and the feminine 
leads for the operetta "Riiddigore" by Gilbert 
and Sullivan were chosen from members of the 
Women's Club. This operetta was presented with 
great success on April 29 and 30. 

In April a new assistant manager was named, 
Jean Davis. Under the management of Virginia 
Pushee, the Women's Glee Club looks forward 
to a successful year for 1938-39.

the first meeting. The Society ran training practice ses- 
sions until Christmas vacation ; afterwards it held 
weekly practice debates before Coach Professor Walter 
E. Prince until spring recess. 

During this period a schedule was built up which in- 
eluded a dual debate with Amherst College on the reso- 
lutions, "that the Consumer's Co-operative System is a 



more satisfactory system of consuming and producing 
goods tlian our present system." This was the first for- 
ensic relationship between these two colleges ever to take 
place. In addition, nine debates on a ten-day southern 
tour and three home debates were scheduled on the 
Pi Kajjpa Delta Debating Fraternity Resolution; "Re- 
solved that the National Labor Relations Board should 
be empowered to enforce arbitration of all industrial 
disputes.' ' 

In the three home debates State defeated William and 
Mary College and Loyola College, and in the first inter- 
collegiate convocation debate in the college history, John 
Hoar and Alfred Swiren defeated American Inter- 
national College by an audience decision of 395 — 159.

Because of the keen interest in this contest it is

1938 WINTER CARNIVAL 




The 1938 Winter Carnival, February 11th and 
12th, marked the third consecutive year that the 
event has been held. It also marked the second 
consecutive year that the event has been held 
without benefit of snow. And, perhaps, the very 
absence of snow was a factor in making this 
year's carnival unique among carnivals and 
firmly establishing it as a student function and 
tradition. 

Certainly the Winter Carnival, as an annual 
affair, can now take its place in the front row 
of student activities, for by virtue of its unusual 
position it was enabled to score several "firsts' 
in student affairs, both at M. S. C. and among 
our colleagues. The election of candidates for 
carnival queen, for example, marks a "first" in 
this section of the country. Wide and favorable 
publicity was gained for the college through this 
election, and it is worthy of note that A. I. C. 
and Springfield College, as well as several non- 
coUegiate groups, quickly took advantage of the 
idea. 



The roller skating derby which supplanted the 
skiing program, was another "first", as was the 
interfraternity golf tournament. These were new 
and novel, and it was pictures of the former 
events that obtained the benefits of the large 
circulation figure of the Boston Record for the 
first time in the history of the College. 

But now for the Carnival itself. The highlight 
of the weekend was, of course, the Ball held in 
the Drill hall with Frank Dailey and his band 
supplying the music. During the Ball, Jessie 
Kinsman was elected queen by the judges, to 
be crowned "Queen Jessie I" by President Baker 
the following evening. 

Another important milestone was passed 
during the two-day frolic with the Roister 
Doister presentation of Professor Rand's play, 
"Not Without Hope". 

The skating program under the direction of 
Frances Merrill was an entertaining feature of 
the Carnival. Skating races, figure and comic 
skating by professional skaters, and informal 
skating to music were all enjoyed by participants 
and spectators alike. Another interesting feature 
was a series of boxing and wrestling matches 
conducted by Robert Perkins. 

Other events followed rapidly. An informal 
dance, swimming meets, basketball game, hockey 
game, band concert, and Social Union aU 
combined to create what will pass down in 
student history as the "Snowless Snow Carnival 
of 1938".

THE 1938 WINTER CARNIVAL BALL 



Whether we have skiing or golf, ice-skating 
or roller-skating, we still have the Winter Carni- 
val; and regardless of any weather conditions 
we still have the Carnival Ball. The highlight 
of each carnival season is the Ball with its 
happy crowd of dancers, its charming queen and 
her escorts, and its joyful spirit of carnival 
rejoicing. This year's Carnival Ball truly lived 
up to all expectations. 

After the last echos of the Old Chapel bell, 
as it tolled nine o'clock, died far up the valley 
the first couples arrived at the Drill Hall. They 
were the first of a merry throng of revelers who 
soon would jam the old Hall to the corners. 
As they entered, they heard the inusic of Frank 
Dailey's Orchestra — the band with the "Stop-Go" 
rythm and the "dead-pan" leader. Then while 
Mr. Carnival Reveler climbed to the top floor to 
stow his coat. Miss Carnival Reveler fixed her 
hair and powdered her nose again to make sure 
that she would look her best when the time came 
to select the queen and her court. Then they 
went down onto the dance floor. At the door 
she was given a souvenir Carnival bracelet and 
then they both were ushered thru the long line 
of patrons and patronesses. Later as they danced 
around the hall they noticed that they were in 
a large ice cavern accompanied by a few stray 
penguins, who were also in tuxes (minus bow- 
ties). The orchestra was on a throne of ice- 
cakes. All in all there was much more of the 
appearance of winter about the Carnival Ball 
than about the Winter Carnival itself with its 
Maytime atmosphere. 



After a few short hours of dancing the grand 
march was formed and the judges prepared to 
select the Queen of the 1938 Carnival. The 
Orchestra played a march and school songs 
while everyone marched, singing the Alma Mater, 
up through the middle of the hall in the face of 
the bright spot-light, while Prof. Barrett took 
moving pictures. The following few minutes 
were minutes of real suspense; but soon the 
judges announced that Jessie Kinsman, '38, had 
been chosen queen and that her court of honor 
consisted of Lois Macomber, '38, Evelyn Savage, 
of Mount Holyoke, Constance Fortin, '39, Erma 
Alvord, '40, Lorraine Creesey, '40, and Constance 
Carney of Dedham. Queen Jessie was then pre- 
sented with a large loving cup and regally 
crowned by President Baker. 

After this there was a short intermission, and 
the crowd which once jammed the Drill Hall 
now spread out in several directions in search of 
refreshments. However they soon returned to 
dance until two o'clock in the huge ice-cavern 
and to live to the utmost those few fleeting hours 
in the spirit of the 1938 Carnival Ball. 

But at last the orchestra played "Goodnight 
Sweetheart." Mr. Carnival Reveler climbed — 
a bit wearily — upstairs for his coat, and Miss 
Carnival Reveler slipped into hers; and as the 
last couples left the darkened hall the Old 
Chapel bell again awoke and rang out twice, 
symbolizing that for each couple that left the 
hall there were two happy people who had really 
enjoyed the Ball — and . . . that it was quite late, 
in fact high-time to hop in bed and relive the 
dance in the magic of dreamland.

DAD'S DAY— 1937 



The eleventh annual Dad's Day was held 
November 13, 1937. In spite of the poor weather, 
a record crowd of dads enjoyed the day on cam- 
pus as guests of their sons or daughters. 

The dads were greeted at Memorial Hall by 
some of our attractive co-eds and, at ten o'clock 
witnessed a horse show conducted by the R. O. 
T. C. cavalry. The sophomore class of twenty 
cadets were shown in a walk and trot class, 
the junior class displayed their skill in horse- 
manship, and the seniors closed the show with 
a well-executed drill and exhibition jumping. 
The committee for the horse show consisted of 
Floyd Townsley, chairman, Robert Buzzee and 
Donald Cadigan. 

In the afternoon, the Massachusetts State foot- 
ball team met R. P. I. on a mud-covered field. 
The dads braved the rain and cold to watch the 



Statesmen defeat the surprisingly strong eleven 
from R. P. I. and, between the halves, the 
sophomores and freshmen staged their annual 
six-man rope pull under the supervision of the 
student Senate. 

The program for the day was completed by 
the presentation of the Bay State Revue, a show 
entirely staged by the students. Just before the 
show President Hugh P. Baker, presented by 
George Haylon, '39, chairman of the Dad's Day 
committee — greeted the dads and other guests. 
The highlight of the program was the presenta- 
tion of a one-act play written by Louis A. 
Breault, '37 and directed by John Hoar, '38. Also 
on the program were the Ballet Maroon, a com- 
edy dance, two student magicians, and a musical 
novelty presented by the combined Sororities. 
Thus ended another successful Dad's Day.

SOPH-SENIOR HOP— 1937 

Chairman, William W. Howe, '39 



The last big event before the class of 1937 left 
this campus was the Soph-Senior Hop, held 
on the fourteenth of June. President and Mrs. 
Hugh P. Baker and Dean and Mrs. William 
L. Machmer were guests of honor. Major and 
Mrs. Leo B. Conner and Dr. and Mrs. Ernest 
J. Radcliife acted as chaperons. 

The Drill Hall, where the affair was held, was 
very effectively decorated in a black and white 
silhouette motif. On the walls were figures of 



students in cap and gown and of other people 
engaged in campus activities. The orchestra for 
the affair was Mai Hallett's, which delighted 
everyone and helped to make the Hop a great 
success. 

The members of the Hop Committee were: 
William Howe, Chairman; Constance Fortin, 
Mabelle Booth, John F. Glick, George Haylon 
and Gordon Najar.

INFORMAL COMMITTEE 

Chairman, Richard W. Towle, '38 



The Informal Committee launched the social 
season at the College on Saturday evening, 
October 2, following the Bowdoin game. Students 
danced to the music of the Knights of Rhythm 
from Holyoke. 

Continuing in the same mood, a "Big Apple" 
dance was held on Saturday evening, November 
20, after the Tufts game. Johnny Newton's 
orchestra from Greenfield, featuring our own 
Vernon Coutu, supplied "hot" rhythm, much to 
the pleasure of those attending. As has been the 
custom in the past, the members of the Tufts 
football team were guests. 



With a change in mood the Committee spon- 
sored an "Old Clothes" dance on Friday evening, 
January 21. Johnny Newton and his popular 
orchestra again manvifactured swing in a modern 
manner. Prizes were awarded to the two couples 
with the most original costumes. 

The yearly series of informals, including such 
varied entertainment features as "Big Apple" 
dances, "Old Clothes" parties, and dancing con- 
tests, has become one of the more popular col- 
legiate functions.

INTERSORORITY BALL 

Chairman, Elthea Thompson, '38 
FROM A CO-ED'S DIARY 



April 23, 1938— 

I had a wonderful time at the Intersororiiy 
Ball last night. Dave looked smooth, even though 
he was tired after his long ride on the train. 
The boys at Mass. State aren't the only ones 
who have imports! 

The programs were cute. They were white 
with a dainty green design and a green tassel. 
Mine went very well with my new green eve- 
ning gown and my corsage of white roses. 

We arrived at the Drill Hall at 9:30. It was 
fun going through the receiving line because I 
knew most of the chaperones and guests quite 
well. They were President and Mrs. Baker, Dean 
and Mrs. Machmer, Major and Mrs. Conner, 
Prof, and Mrs. Smart, Dr. and Mrs. Goldberg, 
Dr. and Mrs. Neet, and Mr. and Mrs. Burke. 
Two of the co-eds on the dance committee, 
Elthea Thompson and Stella Crowell, were also 
in the line with their escorts. Other members 
of the committee were: Sylvia Randall, Martha 
Kaplinsky and Beryl Briggs. 

The decorations were unusual and effective. 
Steve Hamilton and his student helpers cer- 



tainly did a grand job. There were evergreens 
and snapdragons and forsythia on a background 
of blue crepe paper, and the band played behind 
a colonade decorated with flowers and vines. 

Speaking of the band, it was very good. And 
Ken Reeves was cute-looking. Everybody was 
surprised and pleased when two students, 
Fletcher Prouty and Bill Cox, sang special 
numbers. 

During intermission we went with Bob, who 
had his dad's car for the occasion, and his girl 
friend and another couple to Van's. Loads of 
kids from the Ball were there. It was funny 
to see them dancing to the nickelodeon long 
after the intermission had ended, but I shouldn't 
say anything because we did too! 

We didn't exchange many dances because I 
wanted Dave to myself. I was having such a 
good time that I couldn't believe it when it was 
2 o'clock. But I consoled myself by remember- 
ing that there will be another Intersorority Ball 
next year, and I'll certainly be there!

INTERFRATERNITY BALL 



chairman, George J. Haylon, '39 



Boy, oh boy! It seems that the Interfraternity 
Ball gets better and better with each successive 
year. I think that I'll always remember Friday 
night, May 6, 1938. It still remains clear in my 
mind. 

.... it was a typical warm Amherst spring 
evening ... as we drove down the road towards 
the "Mem" building we caught the sweet lilting 
strains of soft music as it floated across the 
hushed campus . . . hurrying to the Drill Hall, 
and satisfying the ticket taker, we moved on 
through the door onto the dance floor to be 
astonished by the unique, artful decorations that 
had transformed the plain hall into a beautifully 
majestic ship, even to the extent of realistic 
life preservers and rigging . . . well up at the 
prow we found a congenial group of guests and 
chaperones: President and Mrs. Baker, Dean 
and Mrs. Machmer, Major and Mrs. Conner, Dr. 
and Mrs. Radcliffe, and Prof, and Mrs. Thayer. 
Not until we had finally become settled did we 



appreciate the novel metal programs that bore 
the intials of every fraternity on the cover — truly 
an interfraternity affair with all groups included. 
The band ... I can still picture it ... in formal 
dress seated aloft on the deck of the S. S. 
Fraternity . . . tall, handsome Charlie Barnett 
with his melodious saxophone . . . the blending 
harmony of a coordinated group . . . the one 
word that best describes the band is smooth 
. . . well do I recall the colorful sight at inter- 
mission as the beautiful women in their smart 
evening gowns and the tall men in their well- 
fitting white jackets strolled out arm in arm 
to have a chat, sip a "coke" or take a walk. . . . 
After a short spell we all returned to thoroughly 
enjoy the remainder of the nicest Interfraternity 
Ball ever held on this campus . . . I'm certain 
that all of the three-hundred couples thank the 
committee composed of George Haylon, Donald 
Silverman, John Glick, Marshall Allen, and 
Harry Blaisdell for a perfect evening . . . I'm 
sure glad that I'm a fraternity man.

1937 HORTICULTURAL SHOW 

Chairman, Richard R. Irving, '38 



The 1938 Horticultural Show was a history- 
making event at Massachusetts State College. 
Good weather combined with excellent publicity 
saw a record-smashing attendance of 23,752 
people — the largest attendance at any college 
event. 

Headed by Richard Irving, the committee 
consisted of Philip Smardon, Robert Dewey, 
Doris Jenkins, John Dunlop, Jack Slocumb, 
Charles Elliott, Frank Southwick, Kenneth Ben- 
son, and the Stockbridge School members, James 
Jenkins, John Jessel, and Vaughan Kochakian. 
Professor Clark L. Thayer was faculty advisor 
and mainstay of the student committee. 

The central feature was a formal garden en- 
closed by a white lattice fence. Grass panels 
bordered by paths and beds of brilliantly colored 
chrysanthemums completed a pleasant picture. 
The whole was terminated by a latticed summer 
house on a raised terrace. Human interest was 
added by a croquet set on the lawn and by per- 
sonal effects in the summer house. 



Careful attention to arrangement provided 
much needed circulation and maintained an un- 
equaled feeling of "show unity". 

The outstanding new exhibit this year was 
that of 30 Christmas wreaths entered by the 
Garden Clubs of Massachusetts. This exhibit 
was well received. 

Awards were given Richard Irving, Student 
Chairman, James Jenkins and Jack Slocumb for 
outstanding work toward the success of the 
show. Exhibitors awards were given to Marjorie 
Harris, largest number of points winner in vase 
arrangements of flowers and vegetables; Stanley 
Hitchcock, sweepstakes winner in pomology; 
Alfred Forbush and Harry Blaisdell, informal 
arrangement covering 100 square feet; Clifford 
Lippincott and John Kennedy, S. S. A., miniature 
100 square feet arrangement. 

Judges were E. I. Farrington, Secretary of the 
Massachusetts Horticultural Society, A. Kenneth 
Simpson of the Berkshire Garden Center, and 
Miss Dorothy M. Anderson of Smith College, a 
member of the Botanical Department.

MILITARY BALL 

chairman, Robert S. Lyons, '38 



On Friday evening, December 10, 1937, the 
Military Ball opened the formal dance season 
with the best dance put on by the soldiers in 
recent years. 

An innovation at the affair was the colorful 
ceremony accompanying the appointment of 
Honorary Colonel Dorothy Nichols, who was 
selected by the vote of the junior and senior 
cadet officers. Miss Nichols, escorted by William 
Avery, walked to the front of the hall beneath 
the arch of sabers formed by a double line of 
cadet officers. She was officially recognized by 
Lieutenant-Colonel Aplington, and then led the 
column of cadets from the hall. 



The decorations of blue and gold added much 
to the colorfulness of the occasion, the silhouettes 
of soldiers being especially effective. 

The music, provided from 9 P. M. to 2 A. M., 
by the Fenton Brothers' Orchestra, was tho- 
roughly enjoyed by the couples attending. 

Invited guests were: President and Mrs. Hugh 
P. Baker, Dean and Mrs. William L. Mackmer. 
Lieutenant- Colonel and Mrs. Horace G. Apling- 
ton, Major and Mrs. Leo B. Conner, and Major 
and Mrs. Harold P. Stewart were the chaperones.

ANNUAL ROTC NIGHT RIDE 

The tenth annual night ride open to members of the Senior Class, held May 25, 1937, was won by 
Cadet Captain Wendell E. Lapham. A tie resulted for second place between Cadet Colonel David 
A, Peterson and Cadet Lieutenant John Ruffley, Jr., with fourth place going to Cadet Captain Fred- 
erick W. Whitttemore, Jr. 

The ride featured the regular controlled ride, with an added test in leadership and reconnaissance. 

The name of Cadet Lapham was the last name to be placed on the 316th Cavalry plaque. The 
plaque was presented to this unit by the officers of the 316th Cavalry in the spring of 1926, at the 
time of our first night ride, and has ten silver name plates on which the names of each year's winner 
is engraved.

1937 MARCH TO ROTC CAMP 



The present class of senior military men at 
Mass. State College will always remember a six 
weeks' hike of approximately five hundred 
miles. The experience gone through by these 
men during the past summer was one which, 
it is generally agreed, turned a class of proud 
though poor horsemen and soldiers into a group 
of better trained and thinking cadet officers who 
began to realize the more important and valuable 
aspects of a sound military training. 

But for a brief resume of the trip itself. . . . 
The entire trip was planned to be travelled over 
back roads, through beautiful country: gorgeous 
lakes, green forests, and magnificient mountains. 
Starting on the third day out, a five day rain 
tried without success to dampen the spirits of 
boys whose soreness of the first few days was 
rapidly disappearing. I suppose the routine camp 
duties are much the same each year — K. P., with 
its pots and pans and potatoes to peel; guard de- 
tail, with its sleepy-eyed "guards" armed with 
rake and lantern and chasing runaway horses at 



midnight in the rain; and fatigue detail, with its 
own unique complications. 

The route of the trip took us through small 
country towns, and each noon we pitched camp 
in another spot, each one so much nearer to our 
destination and ideal for our purpose. Our camps 
led from Amherst to South Deerfield; to Colrain; 
to Wilmington; to Jamaica where the pleasure 
of our Sunday layover was enhanced by the 
nearness of a natural swimming pool; to Man- 
chester Center where, as protection from the rain, 
beds were made on the seats of the fair-grounds' 
grandstand; to Wells; to Lake Bomoseen; to 
Lake Dunmore where wrinkled dress uniforms 
became center of attraction at the local dance 
hall; to Bristol where camp was well provided 
with orderlies ranging anywhere from five to 
ten years of age; to Fort Ethan Allen where a 
welcoming band ushered us in as the horses 
pawed the ground in anticipation of a well- 
earned rest. The route home consisted of the 
same camping grounds except for the omission 




[248] 



R. 0. 0. e. 




of South Deerfield as the last day was spent in 
coming directly to Amherst from Colrain. 

Familiar sayings such as, "Currycombs and 
brushes — Stand to heel" and "Two men on a 
horse", kept us on our toes; but the trip was by 
no means all work and no play. The class of 
'38 military men boasted an undefeated baseball 
team which successfully downed six out of six. 
The Jamaica town team was plowed under on 
their own pasture; at Bristol the town team 
finally succumbed in the tenth innmg, the 
"army" winning by one run; at Fort Ethan Allen 
the Mass. State men combined with Norwich to 
form a powerful nine which took over in stride 
the local C. C. C. unit, the Winooski town team, 
and the Ethan Allen Post champions; and the 
final game in the series was at Manchester Center 
where the reputed champions of the C. C. C. 
camps in Vermont were doomed in an atmos- 
phere so full of insects that one could hardly see 
the ball coming. 

Again at the Fort routine was undoubtedly 
similar to that of years past. Mornings were spent 
on the range while sore shoulders and bruised 
eyes became general expectancies. The red flags 
in the pits were waved with the usual enthu- 
siam while the bullets cracked overhead. After- 



noons were spent in mounted drill followed by 
a not-too-welcome, "Currycombs and brushes", 
after which real showers in real wash-rooms 
would daily run out of warm water. 

The class of '37 had the distinction of being the 
first class to have a mythical orderly whose name 
was Julius; the class of '38 had the honor of 
having Julius, in person, accompany them during 
the entire trip. Julius received attention galore, 
even to the extent of being bathed in citronella 
when mosquitoes were abundant, but evidently 
Julius' horse-sense was unappreciative of all 
his attention, because he was definitely the "men- 
ace" of the picket line. The class of '38 also had 
its own mythical orderly, "Walter" by name, who 
reigned over the camp and kept peace and quiet 
or otherwise. 

But to be serious, though, we of the class of 
'38, who are now senior military men, should 
like to say that the understanding, kindness, and 
efficiency of Colonel H. T. Aplington and Major 
H. P. Stewart along with the co-operation of 
Tech. Sgt. Warren and Staff Sgt. Tanner was 
fully appreciated and was responsible, to a great 
extent, for making the 1937 march to camp an 
unforgettable and pleasant experience.

CHEMISTRY CLUB 




OFFICERS 

President, Walter C. Mayko, "38 
Vice-President, George H. Bischoff, '39 
Secretary, Gertrude J. Hadro, '38 
Treasurer, Cyrus E. French, '38 
Reporter, Jeanette Herman, '39 



In this second year of its existence the Chem. 
Club has broadened its selection of speakers t^ 
include representatives from practically all 
phases of industry. The club year 1936-37 closed 
with a banquet, held in Draper Hall, at which 
the retiring president, Anthony Ferrucci, turned 
over the duties to his successor, Walter C. 
Mayko. 

The present club year opened with a meeting 
held on September 28, 1937 at which the business 
of the coming year was discussed. It was de- 
cided to hold two meetings each month when 
possible. The meeting place was to be Goess- 
mann Laboratory. At the meetings speakers 
talked on subjects of interest, such as petroleum, 
gas, paper, and water purification. On December 
16, 1937, the CIu'd, in conjunction with the Place- 



ment Service, presented Mr. A. V. H. Morey, a 
nationally-known chemist, who spoke on "Per- 
sonnel and Educational Requirements for Car- 
eers in Industry ". The Club acquired from the 
Dupont Corporation for showing on March 10, 
1938, a technicolor talking picture "The Wonder 
World of Chemistry". Students of nearby col- 
leges were invited to attend this meeting. Trips 
to nearby industrial plants were planned by the 
Club in order to see practical applications of 
theories learned in the classroom. 

The Club sponsored the placing of two bronze 
plaques on the trees in front of Goessmann Lab- 
oratory in honor of Dr. Joseph S. Chamberlain 
and Dr. Joseph B. Lindsey. 

This year closed with a banquet and the in- 
duction of the new officers of the Club. 



BACTERIOLOGY CLUB 



OFFICERS 

President, Robert Rustigian, ' 
S-^ice-President, Justin Martin, 
Sec.-Treas., Gertrude Hadro, ' 



The Bacteriology club, reorganized in 1937, entered 
its second year with a strengthened three-fold purpose 
similar to that which brought the organization into 
existence: namely, to acquaint the students with present 
day activities in the field of bacteriology by means of 
speakers, to give them a sense of their importance as 
a professional group, and to bring the students in 
closer contact with the department. The success of 
the organization in its first year was again repeated in 
1938. With the generous aid of the faculty and the 
support of the students the club has no doubt made a 
permanent place for itself among campus organizations. 

Meetings this year were held once a month, at which 
times outside and campus speakers presented talks on 
various phases of the science of bacteriology. An attempt 



to mnke the meetings more informal was successful, and 
the discussions and refreshments that followed the 
talks added to the enjoyment of the meetings. 

New membership rulings instituted this year have 
done much to enliven the club. Membership was for- 
merly open only to seniors taking advanced bacteriology 
courses and to graduate students. Juniors were taken 
in as associate members with the possibility of becoming 
members if they continued in bacteriology. At present, 
however, membership requirements are such that a 
student taking any course in bacteriology and interested 
in the science is eligible. This change has enlarged 
■the group and given to beginning students in bacter- 
iology a chance to see the value of the profession in a 
better perspective.

SEuli 



FERNALD ENTOMOLOGICAL CLUB 



OFFICERS 

President, Elmer R. Lombard, '38 
Secretary, Seaton Mendall, '39 




The Fernald Entomological Club was founded 
on this campus in 1925. It was named in honor 
of Dr, Henry T. Fernald, who founded the en- 
tomology department at this College and who 
was one of the pioneers in the field of economic 
entomology in this country. 

The purpose of the Club is to acquaint its 
members with the outstanding men in this field 
and the outstanding advances that are contin- 
ually being made. Besides visiting speakers, the 
students offer short talks of different types. Such 
talks include personal experiences in entomology, 
results of research work, and book reviews. The 
subject matter is also varied, including all phases 
of entomology. Thus the members receive a 
complete survey of the current work in ento- 
mology. 

The activities of the past year included the 
third annual Fernald Club Picnic which was 
held on May 2, 1937, at Pine Island Lake in West- 
hampton. The picnic was a great success with 
the largest number ever attending. 

At the first meeting in the fall several members 
gave short interesting discussions on their sum- 
mer experiences, including state work on the 
Dutch Elm disease, government work as student 
technicians, and a trip to Europe. At the next 
meeting of the club, held October 7th, Wilfred 
Winter '40 gave an illustrated lecture on his 



trip with MacMillan to the Ai-ctic Circle. Dr. 
K. D. Roeder of Tufts College was the speaker 
for the following meeting on December 10th, 
having as a subject, "The Nervous System and 
Sexual Life of the Praying Mantis". At the 
January meeting many humorous and educa- 
tional incidents during Dr. Alexander's travels 
to the Gaspe the past summer were described. 
Another prominent speaker was Dr. Harold H. 
Plough of Amherst College, who discussed muta- 
tion, temperature and evolution. The United 
States Department of Agriculture was repre- 
sented by the next speaker, Dr. C. H. Batchelder 
of the Connecticut Experiment Station who spoke 
on his work in the control of the European Corn 
Borer. 

In addition to the monthly meetings of the 
Fernald Club and the annual picnic, the club 
sponsors and publishes a year-book which is 
sent to all Entomological Clubs, interested friends 
and alumni. This year-book includes surveys 
of recent entomological work in the department, 
alumni news, brief articles on each junior and 
senior member, a summary of the graduate work 
and other articles of contemporary interest. The 
1938 Yearbook, under the editorship of Charles 
Elliott, assisted by Elizabeth Dolliver with con- 
tributions from all student members of the de- 
artment, is one of the most complete and out- 
standing accomplishments of the Fernald Club. 



THE PSYCHOLOGY CLUB 

OFFICERS 

President, Lois Macomber, '38 

Vice-President, Julie Whitney, '39 

Secretary, Gladys Corkum, '38 



The purpose of the Psychology Club is to 
serve as an agency through which the students 
at Massachusetts State College may gather to 
discuss topics of psychological interest and to 
hear authoritative speakers on such topics. Mem- 
bership is open to any student at the college, 
without obligation. The speakers this year were 
chosen from the faculty and graduate students. 
Francis Ollry, a graduate assistant in psychology. 



introduced the subject of "Heredity" at an early 
meeting, which was followed up a week later 
with a presentation of the same topic by Prof. 
Victor A. Rice. Dr. Claude C. Neet gave a re- 
view of vocational opportunities in the field of 
psychology, and Dr. Harry N. Glick spoke on 
the "Power of Suggestion", after which he gave 
a demonstration of hypnosis. Other programs 
with outside speakers were also planned.

The Math. Club was foxiiided seven years ago through 
the efforts of Professor Moore, who has been active in 
the Club and instrumental iu its success.

Treasurer, Douglas Wood, '3f 



Organized in the spring of 1936, the Pre-Med. Club 
has aimed to promote the interests of the ever-increasing 
number of students who come to Mass. State for their 
preliminary medical training. Its program consists of 
bi-weekly meetings, at which various aspects of the 
medical profession as well as related topics are pre- 
sented by competent and outstanding men. Dr. L. N. 
Durgin of Amherst, presented in a very vivid manner the 
contribution which the Electro-cardiogram is making to 
the understanding of cardiac irregularities ; Dr. Zawaiki, 
of the Northampton State Hospital gave a realistic pic- 
ture of the problems of an institutional doctor, especially 
in connection with disorders arising from venereal dis- 
eases; two outstanding dentists of Springfield outlined 
the various preventative dental health measures to 
which the profession is attempting to direct attention. 
One of the most outstanding meetings of the year was 
that at which Dr. Gage of the Physiology Dept. of the 



College gave generously of his research and experience 
on the problem of "Blood Typing". Two meetings of 
unusual interest were one at which a fascinating surg- 
ical moving picture was shown, and another at which 
some of the seniors \v}\o had been accepted at medical 
school told of experience.? during the all-important inter- 

Beside planning for the regular meetings, it has been 
an object of the Club to make occasional trips to near- 
by institutions where first-hand observation can be made 
of medicine in practice. This year, with the aid of Dr. 
Zawaiki, a trip was arranged to the Northampton State 
Hospital, wiiere several of the type cases which he had 
previously mentioned were actually seen. 



In the absence of Dr. Warfel, our regular ad 
enjoying a year's leave for study, Dr. Woodside ha 
irved very capably as our advisor.

Treasurer, Lawrence Bixby, 




The first organized 4-H Club on this campus origin- 
ated in 1928. Previously there had been many 
clubs formed only for short indefinite periods. The 
enthusiasm of the increasing number of former 4-H 
members in the student body instigated the formation of 
liiis club with its definite project of leadership and 
leader training. The name K. 0. Club was chosen in 
recognition of the fact that former 4-H members wished 
to "Karry-ou" in college. As Miss Gladys E. Sivert, 
one of the early founders of the club said, "We named 
our club Karry-On because of the joy we had received 
from our 4-H club work before we came to M. S. C. 
and because we wanted to carry on our 4-H Club work 
to others." 

Gradually the club broadened in scope. Prominent 
speakers and members of the faculty addressed the club 
and a variety of entertainments "were included in each 
year's program as the club grew-. 



In 1934 under the capable direction of President 
George Simmons, a new constitution was drawn ui). 
setting forth not only the necessary rules and regula- 
tions, but also the ideals of the club. This firmly entren- 
ched the K. 0. Cub as a campus activity. 

Last year the club became a member of the Youth 
Section of the American Country Life Association. A 
representative was sent to the annual conference and 
in February the M. S. C. 4-H Club was host to the 
annual conference of the New England Youth Section 
of the Association. 

Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each 
month. An educational, a recreational, and an inspira- 
tional phase 'is included in every one. Former 4-H Club 
members and all other interested students are welcome. 

The Club has grown successfully with the College 
until now it is one of the largest organizations on 
campus with the potentiality of being the largest.

The purpose of the Home Economics Club is to 
develop a professional spirit among the members; to 
keep up with current topics of the home economics 
world; to bring members in contact with larger home 
economics organizations and to cultivate friendships 
among girls in this field. 

Any girl is eligible for membership if she has taken 
ten credits in courses required of Home Economics 
majors. All Home Economics majors are active mem- 



The Club originated in 1929 with Ruth Sivert as 
president. The small club grew with the increasing en- 
rollment of Home Economics majors. Today more than 
44% of the women students at Massachusetts State 
College are majoring in Home Economics, which accounts 
for the breadth of the Club's activities. 



Tlie Club is afaiiated with Home Economics Clubs of 
four other colleges in Massachusetts. This association 
holds an annual meeting at the time of the Massachusetts 
State Home Economics meeting. 

In the summer of 1937 Dorothy Morley, '40, was 
chosen to represent all the college Home Economies Clubs 
in Massachusetts at the meeting of the American Home 
Economics Association in Kansas City. 

Five club meetings are held yearly, including a tea in 
the Abbey Center in December and a banquet in May. 
Speakers who will be of general interest to the club 
members are obtained. 

The Home Economics Club does not center all its 
interests within the club. It strives to aid a worthy 
cause annually. This year a sum of money was pre- 
sented to the Woman's Club to provide a Merry Christ- 
mas for a needy family in town.

Agriculture were sliown with each program, making the 
meetings more interesting and valuable. 

In addition to the series of talks, the Club sponsored 
for the first time a judging contest, which gave exper-

fortunate in securing excellent speakers for its meetings, 
The topics that have been covered are: sanitation, 
dairy plant machinery, wholesale and retail marketing, 
organizations of research, dairy products judging, by- 
products of the dairy industry, and current legislation. 

At the March meeting of the club an interesting talk 
and exhibit was given on "Advertising and Salesman- 
ship", by a member of the N. W. Ayer advertising con- 
cern of Boston. The members were shown the various 
types of advertising done in the dairy world and also 
in other products. The comparison showed the lack of 
advertising for dairy products and it also showed the 
need for it. 

A discussion on "Qualities of a Milk Inspector" was

Graham and MacCurdy journeyed to New Orleans, La. 
to participate in the National Dairy Exposition's Stu- 
dent Judging Contest. MacCurdy was awarded second 
place in milk judging, and Graham received third place 
in cheese judging, fourth place in butter judging, and 
fifth place in judging all products. The team was third 
in rank, out of the seventeen colleges competing, in 
judging all products, and was the recipient of a $600,00 
scholarship for graduate study. The scholarship was 
awarded to Robert MacCurdy for excellence in scholar- 
ship by the dairy industry department of the college. 

Several members of the club made a tour of the larger 
dairy plants in Springfield, Worcester, and Boston. The 
(rip offered an opportunity for first-hand information and 
inspection of modern dairies. Professor J. H. Frandsen 
accompanied the members on the trip.

The Massachusetts State College Outing Club 
was founded about ten years ago by enthusiastic 
hikers who foresaw the advantages of organized 
hiking. Since this time the Club has grown so 
that its program includes many different kinds 
of hikes. During the past year scheduled hikes 
were to Mount Haystack, Greylock and Mon- 
adnock, short hikes to Mount Toby, and Warner, 
and also supper hikes to Sky Pastures and a 
joint overnight trip with the Mount Holyoke 
Outing Club to Northfield. The Club also holds 



monthly meetings at the 4-H Club House at 
which various speakers offer camping suggestions, 
relate their experiences as hikers, or tell other 
things of interest to those who enjoy hiking and 
the out-of-doors. 

Cabins and trails on Mount Toby are main- 
tained by the Club which also has charge of 
guiding on Mountain Day. In the past year the 
Outing Club assisted with the Winter Carnival 
held by this College.

Harrison serve as advisors. 

The Alumni Conference of Landscape Archi- 
tecture was of particular interest to the mem- 



bers and gave them a better insight into the 
various aspects of the field. 

It is expected that this spring numerous 
Alumni speakers will be entertained by the Club, 
and a trip for viewing landscape developments 
may be taken.

Advisor, Prof. Harold C. Gary 



The International Relations Club of Massachusetts 
State College is oue of many such clubs to be found 
among New England colleges. Collectively these clubs 
form the New England International Relations Club As- 
sociation, a federation formed for the purpose of ex- 
changing information and ideas. Tlirough its connection 
with the Carnegie Foundation of New York, the club 
is periodically supplied with the newest books on world 
topics of all kinds. This outstanding collection of ref- 
erence works is to be found in the reference room of 
Goodell Library. It numbers over ninety bound books, 
not including many more pamphlets and leaflets. 

The purpose of the organization is to encourage stu- 
dent interest in international affairs, both current and 
historical. Speakers are sponsored who discuss per- 
tinent contemporary topics, almost always tracing their 
interesting origin and development. Prof. A. A. Mac- 
Kimmie of M. S. C Prof. Laurence Packard of Amherst 



Evan P. Derby of the London, (Eng.) 
were three of the speakers of the 



College and P: 
School of E 
1937-38 session. 

In addition to sponsoring speakers, the club partici- 
pates in discussions of subject material centered about 
one theme. Much of this work leads toward preparation 
for participation in the sessions of the New England 
Model League of Nations, which are held each spring 
at some New England college or university and to which 
each I. R. C. unit of the New England Federation sends 
delegates. The meetings of the League are patterned 
directly after those of the Geneva League and provide 
excellent experience for those participating. The most 
recent session of the Model League was held on the 
M. S. C. campus in March, 1938, at which time the 
college entertained over three hundred visitors from 
leading New Englaud colleges. 



THE WESLEY FOUNDATION 

OFFICERS 

President, Martti Suomi, '39 

Vice-President, Richard Taylor, '41 

Sec.-Treas. Ruth Crimmin, '41 



The Wesley Foundation was established in 1935, by 
Rev. Stead Tliornton, former pastor of the Wesley 
Methodist Episcopal Church of Amherst. He wished to 
promote an opportunity for a small group of Methodist 
students, though not excluding students of other faiths, 
to meet Sunday evenings at the home of Dr. and Mrs. 
Adrian H. Lindsey for the purpose of discussing vital 
religious and social questions. Under the guidance of 
Rev. Thornton and Rev. Arthur Hopkinson, Jr., its 
present leader, the organization has grown to its opti- 
mum size of twenty members. The aim of the M. S. C. 
Wesley Foundation is to instill within its members a 
conscious realization of the power of Christianity and its 
application to both the common and the crucial problems 
of society. 



The program for 1937-38 was as successful as it was 
varied. Its members took an active part in the Con- 
necticut Valley Student Christian Movement Mid-winter 
Conferer ce at Northfield and the Greater Boston Method- 
ist Student Conference at Cambridge. Several members 
of the Foundation served the Amherst Methodist Episco- 
pal Church as Sunday-school teachers and leaders of 
the Epwortli League. On one occasion they conducted 
the regular morning service. In addition to its regular 
discussion meetings, the group was privileged to have 
as ii. formal speakers. Dr. Hornell Hart, Dr. J. 
P. Williams, Rabbi Fishman, Dr. Harry N. Glick, and 
Miss Georgia Harkness.

Tlie purpose o£ the Newman Club ot Massachusetts 
State College is to unite the Catholic students of the 
College in order to promote their spiritual, intellectual 
and social development. 

Chief among its activities this year were the Com- 
munion Breakfasts, held at least twice a semester. At 
these occasions the Club sponsored guest speakers who 
ably presented the Catholic viewpoint on world problems 
I'ud lay action. On the third Thursday of each month 
the Club held its regular meeting.

The Christia

n Federation was formed in the spring of 
ning the former Christian Association for 
JT. \V. C A. for women; as such it is a 
the New England Student Christian Move- 



ment. Membership is open to any one enrolled in the 
College who earnestly desires to cooperate in fultilling 
its purpose of seeking the meaning of life and living in 
realistic awareness of the relationship of this meaning to 
our present-day society. 

The work of the organization is varied in accordance 
with the emphases which are considered most vital. This 
year a very active Dramatics Group has produced plays 
pertinent to a religious interpretation of modern prob- 
lems. These plays have been presented several times 
both in Amherst and neighboring communities. Perhaps 
most lu table was their presentation as the basis of a 
week-end deputation to Sterling, Mass., a project under- 
taken in cooperation with the Amherst College Christian 
Association. Another outstanding feature of the year's 
program was the Armistice Day meeting, at which a 
condensed version of "Bury the Dead" was offered by 



Beryl Briggs. Lawrence Levin son. John 
Walter Epstein, all prominent members oi 
matic circles, to a large and deeply-mo^ 



college dra- 
d audience. 



In December, two members were sent with representa- 
tives tiom the Menorah Society and the Newman Club 
to participate in an Intercollegiate Interfaith Conference 
at Brown University. On the week-end of March 5, 
nine members were sent to the Mid-winter Conference of 
th New England Student Christian Movement at North- 
luld, Mass. These intercollegiate conferences are an 
important part of the program, since they aid in keep- 
ing our organization in contact with other active groups 
throughout New England. 

This year special emphasis has been placed upon work 
with the freshmen. Sunday evening meetings have been 
held at which the new members of our Collge community 
could come into more intimate contact with the work of 
the Federation than had previously been possible. Later 
in the year a Freshman Cabinet was formed to ad- 
minister to the needs of the group.

PHILLIPS BROOKS CLUB 




OFFICERS 

ddent, John Bale 



The Phillips Brooks Club of the Massachusetts State 
College was founded in 1937 by the Reverend George 
Leslie Cadigan of Grace Church, Amherst. Its purpose 
is to unite the Episcopal Students of the college and of 
the Stockbridge School of Agriculture in an organization 
of mutual religious interests, and problems, and to pro- 
mote their spiritual, social, and intellectual development. 
Talks by professors from this college and others and 



informal discussions are held weekly in the Goodell 
Library Music Room. 

This year we have had Reverend Henry N. Parsley 
of Grace Church as our advisor. Each year the Rev- 
erend Charles Cadigan, Rector of Grace Cliurcb invites 
all Episcopal students at Massachusetts State and 
Stockbridge to a supper at the parish house, at which 
time the plans for the coming year are discussed.

The Menorah Club includes in its membership every 
.le-vvish student in the college. Its purpose it two fold: 
(1) to keep alive or awaken a vital sympathy for and 
enjoyment of Jewish customs and traditions; and (2) to 
encourage an understanding of the Jewish cultural 
heritage. The Menorah Club cooperates with other 
religious groups and integrates its activities with the 
larger religious purposes of the college through The 
Student Religious Council. 

To carry out its general aims the Menorah Club spon- 
sors numerous activities both to secure variety in its 
programs and to appeal to different interests. It brings 
outside speakers to the campus; it sponsors the Friday 
evening services, holiday parties, study groups, the 
Menorah Bulletin and the purchase of books and 
periodicals. 

The outstanding event during the first semester of the 
scholastic year was the freshman reception. Attended 
by almost all of the Jewish students it was very "impres- 
sive through its happy combination of interest and dig- 
nity. Tlie most notable fact of the meeting was the 
clear indication that a larger group of students were 
now more actively interested in the Menorah Club than 
in any previous year. 



The Purim party stood out above all other Menorah 
undertakings during the second semester. Sidney Rosen, 
'39, presented his closely knit play "Hamantaschen and 
Stiches", which he wrote, produced and acted virtually 
unaided: Rabbi Habas delivered an amusing and infor- 
mative talk on Purim, while the reading of the story of 
Esther gave everybody the opportunity to get vicarious 
vengeance by hissing and stamping at the mention of 
Haman. 

The two memorable speeches of the year were given 
by Abraham Lipsitz of Amherst College on his experi- 
ences during the preceding summer in Palestine and in 
Switzerland while the Zionist Congress was going on; 
and by Carl Alpert, editor of the Jewish Advocate, on 
Zionism. 

The Menorah Bulletin, edited by Sidney Rosen, was a 
new venture of the Menorah Chib. Its general purpose 
was to keep the students informed about the activities 
of the Menorah Club. 

Through its two representatives the club took an* 
active fart in arranging the programs of The Conference 
of the Connecticut Valley Association for Jewish College 
Students. Tliese conferences were well attended by Mass. 
State delegations.

VESPERS 



The Vesper Services sponsored by the United 
Religious Council are held each Sunday at five 
o'clock in the Memorial Building. At these 
services, religious leaders — Catholic, Protestant, 
and Jewish — and laymen who are interested in 
religious topics address the students and faculty 
who are seeking the spiritual \-alues which such 
a service can give. The series was opened in 
1937 by Dr. James Gordon Gilkey of Springfield. 

One of the outstanding speakers was Professor 
William Lyon Phelps, whose topic was "The 
Platform of Christianity". Mrs. Marguerite H. 
Bro, of the Congregational Council for Social 
Action, spoke with great vitality and enthusiasm. 
She urged her audience "to dig the wells our 
fathers dug and dig them deeper". Rabbi Milton 
Steinberg gave an address upon "Religion and 
Democracy", in which he stated that it is only 
through political democracy that religion has a 
chance to survive. Bishop Charles Wesley Burns 
of Boston emphasized the great need of knowing 
the eternal verities in the present day when 
times are so disjointed. Dr. Brewer Eddy of 
Boston spoke on the importance of world 
Christianity achieved through missionary work. 
Other religious leaders included in this program 
of Vesper services were Professor S. Ralph 
Harlow, whose subject was "Does Psychic 
Research Throw Light on the Christian Hope 
of Immortality?"; the Reverend Jeffry Campbell, 
who spoke on "Isaiah — A Prophet of God"; 
Rabbi Abraham Feldman of Hartford; Bishop W. 
Appleton Lawrence of Springfield; Dr. Grady 
Feagan of Arlington; Professor Hans Kohn of 
Smith College and Father T. Lawrason Riggs 
of Yale University. 



Several members of the faculty also spoke at 
these services. Professor Frank A. Waugh had 
as his topic "Discipline". In an address on 
"Humility and Tolerance", Dr. Maxwell Goldberg 
emphasized the theme of "Live and let live." 
On the Sunday before the Christmas vacation 
Dean William L. Machmer spoke on "A Prophesy 
Fulfilled — Some Reflections." 

An outstanding event of the year was a series 
of three talks given by Professor James T. 
Cleland of Amherst College on "The Basis of 
the Christian Religion". The first lecture during 
the convocation period on February 17th was 
"Thou Shalt Love Thyself". The subject of the 
second lecture on the next evening was "Thou 
Shalt Love Thy Neighbor". The climax was 
reached in the final talk at the vesper service 
in which Professor Cleland took up his third 
point— "Thou Shalt Love Thy God." 

Another highlight was the service on March 
20. For the first time in the history of the 
College, the speakers were student representa- 
tives of three divergent religious faiths on 
campus. Lawrence Levinson, '38, told about the 
ideas of justice which Amos emphasized. Robert 
W. Gage, '33, described Jesus Christ's search for 
truth and his interest in human beings. William 
G. Foley, '40, contrasted the idealism of Newman 
with the lack of tolerance in modern society. 

"This vesper service", said one of the student 
speakers, "with the representatives of the three 
religious groups on campus speaking side by 
side from the same platform, is symbolic of the 
cooperative spirit which translates into effective 
form the best in our respective religions." 



SOCIAL UNIONS 



Of great interest this year have been the 
Social Union programs, which have done well 
in carrying on the tradition of preceding years. 
First came the Boston Srnfonietta under the 
direction of Arthur Fiedler, who is recognized 
for his work at the well-known "pop" concerts. 
The varied program which was presented was 
enthusiastically received by all who attended. 

After this came the annual Bay State Revue, 
which was haUed as "one of the best". The 
program opened with a few selections by the 
college band. Then came James Lee and Robert 
Marsh with some old Irish songs, the intersorority 
skit with its chorus and specialty numbers, 
Foster and Freeman with their magic, and the 
college orchestra with its selections. The first 
performance of "Make-Believe Angeline", a one- 
act play by Louis Breault, '37, was given by 



members of the Roister Doisters. The high spot 
of the program proved to be a ballet specialty 
done by five male "co-eds". A detailed descrip- 
tion follows this article. 

Then to our campus came Blanche Yurka with 
her dramatic monologues. She presented comedy 
sketches of the past and present, which were of 
great interest to everyone. In January, Earle 
Spicer, the baritone soloist, delighted his audience 
particularly with his ballads. 

Soon after this the Jitney Players again came 
to our campus and presented "Diplomacy", a 
revised and modernized version of Sardou's play, 
which was an important late nineteenth century 
drama. Its humor and interest held the audience 
from beginning to end. As a part of the Winter 
Carnival program, the Social Union sponsored 
the Varsity Club Male Quartet. 



[259] 



ActLmitie^ 



SOCIAL UNIONS 



The last of these programs for this year was 
the combined Musical Clubs Concert, with both 
Glee Clubs and Orchestra doing a fine piece of 
work. Julia Lynch afforded her audience much 
enjoyment with a group of violin selections, and 
the guest artist, Lorin Clark, contributed much 



to the pleasure of the program with his baritone 
solos. And so another year of pleasant Social 
Union programs ended. We only hope that we 
may continue to have equally enjoyable pro- 
grams in the future. 



THE BAY STATE REVUE 



A few years after the War a group of students 
here gave expression to their pent-up abilities 
and produced the first Bay State Revue. For 
several years the Revue was one of the events 
of the year. In the early thirties, however, the 
depression hit the Revue and enthusiasni ran 
low. At that time, had it not been for the 
whole-hearted support of a few people, we might 
have lost our annual Revue. Then along came 
the Revue of 1936 to bring the show to life again. 
The spirit of this new awakening carried over 
into 1937, and one of the best Revues of all time 
was produced as a part of the Dad's Day Pro- 
gram before two capacity crowds. 

After nearly drowning during the afternoon 
while watching State beat Renssalaer in th? 
pouring rain, and then enjoying dinner at the 
various fraternity houses, about four hundred 
Dads assembled at Bowker Auditorium to wit- 
ness the second presentation of the "1937 Bay 
State Revue". Gene Gieringer, as master of 
ceremonies, introduced the band for the first 
number. Here again the band showed that it 
could truly be called the best in State's history 
as it played several numbers and then introduced 
one of its drum majors, Erma Alvord, who played 
a chime solo. After this our genial Gene stepped 
before the curtains and introduced those two 
ragamuffins from old Erin — Jim Lee and Bob 
Marsh. Their "harmonious" duet soon had the 
crowd roaring with laughter. 

This was followed by a bevy of Floradora girls, 
a specialty dance by that famous dance team of 



Fagan and Gaskell, a very "sophisticated" act by 
that charming little charmer, Joan Sannella, and 
finally a real Rippling Rhythm Tap-Dance by 
Betty Eaton. This fast succession of good acts 
had the audience on the edge of their chairs 
throughout the first half of the program. 

Those two mystic magicians, Freeman and 
Foster, then showed us some real trickery as they 
produced a package of lighted cigarettes and 
"burnt" dollar bills from nowhere. 

During the intermission, the orchestra played 
some music until Master Gene returned with 
his greatest find — the one and only Ballet 
Maroon. The graceful "co-eds" tripped fan- 
tastically to the lilting tune of "Narcissus". They 
were resplendent in ribbons, pink tarleton skirts, 
and extraordinary eyelashes. 

After this act the audience was so overcome 
that it did not appreciate the short serious play 
which ended the Revue. The Roister Doisters 
presented "Make-Believe Angeline" written by 
one of our recent alumni, Louis Breault, '37. 
It was ably acted and although not in the same 
light vein as the rest of the program, it was 
very interesting. 

When the final curtain fell on the Revue, ade- 
quate proof had been shown that there is talent 
in this college, that the Band, Orchestra, and 
Roister Doisters are worth seeing and hearing, 
and that State really has some "Co-eds". 



FINE ARTS SERIES 



The second annual Fine Arts Program which 
was held Tuesday afternoons at the Memorial 
Building, was popular not only with people con- 
nected with Massachusetts State College, but also 
with other people of Amherst as well. The Fine 
Arts Council, in charge of the series, was com- 
posed of eight members: Frank A. Waugh, 
chairman, Stowell C. Coding, Miss Edna L. 
Skinner, Frank Prentice Rand, Harold W. Cary, 
Miss Ethel W. Blatchford, Orton L. Clark, and 
Basil B. Wood. 



The two meetings in October were given to 
members of our faculty, — Professor Frank A. 
Waugh and Professor A. Anderson Mackimmie. 
Mr. Waugh, flutist, who was accompanied by 
Miss Laura Kidder at the piano, was the first 
composer to have played his own compositions 
on this campus. Professor Mackimmie, having 
just returned from a tour in Europe, gave us, 
with the aid of slides, a vivid description of the 
city of Florence, which has been the cradle of 
much in the fine arts of the world. In November,

FINE ARTS SERIES 

(Continued) 



Robert Wolcott, a native of Amherst, but at the 
present a resident of Springfield, gave a lecture 
on the art of mural and landscape painting, il- 
lustrated by the exhibit of his own works which 
was in the Memorial Building at that time. At 
the second program of the month, Robert Francis 
of Amherst, was featured, this time as a violinist 
instead of a poet, as he was last year. His recital 
was accompanied by Mr. Stratton, instructor in 
music at our college. Selections by Handel, 
Bach, Brahms, Fauve, and Ravel comprised the 
program. 

For pleasant variation, Mr. Duncan Phillips, 
well known art critic, in his talk entitled "The 
Artist Sees Differently", led a discussion on 
the differences between the classic and romantic 
types of painting. Mr. Phillips was sponsored by 
the American Federation of Arts. 

Miss Barbara Strode, of the class of 1938, 
wrote, directed and acted in her own one-act 
play, "Maids in a Muddle," for the Fine Arts 
audience on November 23rd. The purpose of 
the playlet was to show the need for a new 
women's building. It had numerous showings 
throughout the state. 

The month closed with one of the most out- 
standing programs in the Fine Arts series this 
year. Mr. Doric Alviani, Supervisor of Music 
in the Amherst Public Schools, presented a song 
recital in his rich baritone voice. So thoroughly 
did he captivate his audience that encore upon 
encore was requested. 

In December, Professor Walter E. Prince, 
whose subject was "Another Dark Lady," gave 
a brief survey of the theories which have been 
set forth to explain the identity of the woman 
who seems to have been the subject of many 
of Shakespeare's sonnets. The latest theory, 
which is aired by Pauline K. Angel, is not the 
one to which Professor Prince subscribes. It 
is based on a poem written in 1594. Professor 
Prince showed how this poem supports the 
theory, but he takes his stand with those who 
grant Shakespeare a margin of privacy which 
he obviously wanted; for the poems were not 
written for publication, nor does the sonneteer 
mention the young lady's name. 

In another Fine Arts program of December, 
one of the most unusual and fascinating arts, 
that of Japanese prints, was described by H. 
Irving Olds, who is connected with the F. A. R. 
Art Gallery of New York. Japanese prints as 
we know them were not made after 1850. In an 
attempt to perpetuate the old prints by making 
accurate copies, Toyohisa Adachi, with Mr. Olds 
as American agent, established the firm of 



Adachi-Olds. Mr. Olds demonstrated the art 
of Japanese printing from the carving of the 
cherry blocks to the affixing of the last color to 
the mulberry bark paper. A survey of the 
history of this art, from the works of Moronobu 
to Hiroshige, further enlightened the audience. 
Many of the beautiful prints that had been on 
exhibit in the lounge were shown again, and the 
unexpected pleasure of viewing the rarest trea- 
sures of the art, the triads, was offered by Mr. 
Olds. Three panels, each made with a separate 
set of carved blocks as if they were single pic- 
tures, compose one large scene. Members of 
the audience lingered, even after the lecture had 
closed, to inspect the prints. 

The new year opened with a most interesting 
program by Mr. J. B. Newlon of the Agricultural 
Engineering department of the College. The 
history of Iron Working, from, the time of the 
Egyptians, 6000 years ago, up to the present day, 
was summarized. Mr. Newlon then explained 
fundamental formations in ironwork, and showed 
some of his specimens of antique locks, latches, 
hinges, andirons, slicers, and other articles made 
of iron. 

Madame Sahla, mother of Mrs. Hugh P. Baker, 
was one of the outstanding artists on the Fine 
Arts' calendar for January. Her songs were 
featured as part of the program in which Mr. 
Stratton gave a recital on the orgatron. In a talk 
of the same month Professor Julian, of our Ger- 
man Department, presented two reels of motion 
pictures of Germany. One depicted the life of 
the Hessian peasants, and the other one, which 
met with great favor from the audience, con- 
cerned a Hessian wedding, showing the bride's 
fancy costume with its elaborate head dress and 
fourteen skirts, and the peculiar wedding cus- 
toms. In this month, too, Professor Frank 
Prentice Rand gave an informal talk on Eugene 
Field — his idiosyncrasies and his works. This 
was one of the most delightful programs of the 
season. 

The two meetings for February, that of the 
eighth, and that of the fifteenth were provided 
for by the Music and Literature departments 
respectively. The first was a joint music recital 
with Amherst College, and the second was a 
review by Dr. Helming entitled, "Two Southern 
Novels". The long anticipated two-piano recital 
by Mr. and Mrs. Stratton opened the meetings . 
for March. This recital was one of the most 
popular programs of the Fine Arts series. The 
brilliant work of these two pianists received the 
enthusiastic acclaim of the listeners. Next came 
the Dance Recital under the direction of the

Physical Education Department. It attracted a 
very large audience. The interesting and novel 
program included twelve dances by the co-eds, 
and an unforgettable Sword Dance by the men. 
Professor Clark discussed on March 15th, the 
Family Art Exhibit in the Memorial Building. 
Contributors were all connected with the College. 
The meeting was very interesting. 

At the last meeting of the season, Mme. Ii-ma 
Labastille, in one of her series of lectures, showed 
examples of the colorful costumes and designs of 
Mexico and South America. 

After the season was formally closed, the Fine 
Arts Council sponsored a two-day visit by Pro- 



fessor Asplund of the Stockholm Institute of 
Technology. One of the Professor's lectures 
treated of "Swedish Architecture Since 1920: Its 
Problems and Trends." Professor Asplund's 
visit to the campus proved of great interest to 
those who are patrons of the arts. 

Thus the successful series of programs pre- 
sented by the Council came to a close. On the 
basis of attendance, the most popular programs 
were: the Dance Recital, the Song Recital by 
Doric Alviani, the Song Recital by Mme. Sahla 
and the Orgatron recital by Mr. Stratton, and 
finally, the Recital for Two Pianos by Mr. and 
Mrs. Stratton. There was a marked increase in 
attendance this year as compared with last year. 



ART EXHIBITS 



For several years the college has enjoyed art 
exhibits in the Memorial Building and the Goo- 
dell Library, and occasionally at Wilder Hall and 
the Physical Education Building. To Professoi' 
Frank A. Waugh goes most of the credit for 
beginning and continuing these exhibits which 
arouse so much interest among students and 
faculty. 

In the Memorial Building there are almost 
always exhibits of oil paintings, water-colors, 
etchings, woodcuts, Japanese prints, or repro- 
ductions of famous paintings. The best liked 
collections were the oil paintings of New England 
by Robert Strong Woodward, Herschel Logan's 
wood cuts, the set of colorful Japanese prints, 
the collection of prizewinning etchings, and the 
Family Art Exhibit. 

As a result of the recent developments in pho- 
tography, there has been a growing interest and 



appreciation of this medium as a form of art- 
istic expression. Through the cooperation of Mr. 
John H. Vondell, instructor at the college and 
secretary of the Amherst Camera Club, and Mr. 
Basil B. Wood, head of the Goodell Library, 
students and others who are interested have 
had, since November, 1935, the opportunity of 
seeing the best photographs of today. In addition 
to the prizewinning prints of the monthly con- 
tests of the Camera Club, which is mainly a 
campus organization, but also includes members 
from surrounding towns, there are always on 
view photographs on a variety of subjects. They 
include exhibits from other camera clubs in the 
United States, one-man shows of photographs 
by such noted experts as F. Allen Morgan and 
Avery Slack, and photographs from technical 
magazines, including "American Photography" 
and "Camera Craft." 



FOREIGN MOTION PICTURES 



students from Massachusetts State College, 
Amherst College, and Amherst High School, with 
the cooperation of the Amherst Theater, liave 
the opportunity to see every year at least five 
moving pictures in French or German, for only 
fifty cents. This year the German pictures were 
given on Tuesdays, at 4:30 from the 16th of Nov- 
ember to the 14th of December. The films were 
"Das Madchen Johanna," "Masquerade in 



Vienna," "Emil und die Detektive," "Amphitry- 
on," and "Hermine und die 7 Aufrechten." 

The French pictures were shown on Mondays 
at the same hour, from February 14 to March 21. 
They were "Merlusse," "Une Soiree a la Come- 
die Francaise," "Helene," "Mile. Mozart" (with 
Danielle Darrieux) "Les Bas Fondes" and "Ma- 
thies Pascal. 



THE COMMUNITY CONCERTS 



The Community Concert Series, which is held in 
Bowker Auditorium at Stockhridge Hall, is open both 
to townspeople and the college. Tlie concerts are given 
on a subscription basis. Members are permitted to at- 
tend, without additional charge, community concerts in 
other cities. The Community Concert Series presents 
well-known musical artists, especially in opera and 
symphony. 

Helen Jepson, leading soprano of the Metropolitan 
Opera Association, gave the first concert before a large 
group of appreciative listeners. Captivating the aud- 
ience with her grace and charm and with her beautiful 
renditions of the aria, "Un fel di vedremo" from Madame 
Butterfly, another aria, "Ah fors e lui" from La Ti-a- 
viata, and her last piece, "Thy Sweet Singing", by 
Olmstead, Miss Jepson gave proof of her superlative 
position as operatic interpreter. 

At the second concert, Dalies Prantz, brilliant young 
concert pianist, delighted the audience with his delicate 
and restrained renditions of Bach's "Three Choral Pre- 
ludes" and with his facile and scintillating performance 



of the Chopin "Etudes" to which the latter part of the 
program was devoted. 

The third concert marked the first appearance of an 
interpretive dance group at the Community Concerts — 
Miriam Winslow and her Dancers, accompanied by a 
versatile pianist. The audience enjoyed particularly 
Miss Winslow' s interpretation of the swift emotional 
sweep of Chopin's "Prelude", and her comic dance, 
"Hornpipe", by LuUy-Purcell. Four of her dancers. 
Misses Cousens, Maclaren, Magrath, and Morse, delighted 
the audience with their clever and capricious "Little 
Women", by Tschaikowsky. At the conclusion of the 
performance the entire ensemble gave an exquisite and 
delicate interpretation of Handel's great Hymn, "Lai-go".

M. S. C. CONCERTS 



The Music Committee of Massachusetts State 
College, which has charge of the musical pro- 
grams in the Social Union and Fine Arts series, 
also brings to the campus annually four out- 
standing musicians or groups of musicians. The 
Committee brought honor to the College by in- 
stitutmg two years ago, the practice of securing 
musicians for two-day visits to our campus. 

The first of the four musical programs during 
this school year was offered on November 17, 
1937, when Ben Haggin, well-known music 
critic, gave a lecture on "American Music: Im- 
provised Jazz," illustrated with recordings of 
"swing" music. 

On December 13, and 14, Richard Lorleberg, 
violin-cellist, and his sister, Crete von Boyer, 



pianist, gave three informal concerts, culminated 
by a formal concert in the Memorial Building. 
A varied and interesting program, featuring 
a composition by Mr. Giorni of Smith College, 
was given on January 16, 1938, by the Spring- 
field Symphony Civic Orchestra. 

The last event in the series took place on 
March 22 and 23. Mme. Irma Goebel Labastille, 
pianist, gave four lectures on "The Romance of 
Latin America in Melody and Rhythm." The 
lectures included a piano recital, group singing, 
sound motion pictures, slides, and talks on in- 
struments and costumes. 

The M. S. C. concerts, which are varied and 
educational, are well attended. 

They are free and open to the public. 



CARNEGIE ROOM 



A few years ago, Massachusetts State College 
was one of the colleges which received a music 
set from the Carnegie Corporation. This col- 
lection consists of a Capehart phonograph, 130 
albums of records preserving the best music 



from the earliest times to the present day, many 
scores, and numerous books on music. It is 
housed in the music room in the basement of 
Goodell Library. Every afternoon except Sat- 
urday it is available to anyone who likes music. 



THE MODEL LEAGUE OF NATIONS 



With world sanctions and the preservation of 
international peace as its principal problems, the 
New England Model League of Nations conducted 
its eleventh annual assembly at Massachusetts 
State College on March 18 and 19, 1938. More 
than three hundred students, representing the 
majority of New England colleges, gathered to 
act as delegates of the various nations of the 
world in an effort to reach a greater understand- 
ing of the problems and intricacies of inter- 
national relations. 

Each nation, through its delegates, presented 
its difficulties and individual problems to the 
assembly for discussion and consideration. The 
major questions considered were: political inter- 
vention in affairs of small countries; intellectual 
cooperation between nations; protection of rights 
of political minorities; international trade and 
tariff barriers; the mandate of Palestine; and 
political conditions in the Far East. 

Individual committee meetings drew up pro- 
posals and resolutions, as a result of their invest- 
igations and discussions, which they presented to 
the plenary sessions for consideration and ap- 
proval. The discussion, conducted as similarly 
as possible to that of the League of Nations, was 



made doubly interesting in view of the European 
crisis which existed at that time. 

High points of the assembly were: the Russian 
resolutions to brand Germany, Italy and Japan 
as aggressor nations and to take action against 
them; Austria's dramatic withdrawal from the 
League ; and Lithuania's unconditional acceptance 
of the Polish ultimatum. 

The Collegian, in an editorial published dur- 
ing the convention, expressed the following opin- 
ion: "Although the League of Nations itself has 
appeared to lack the harmony necessary to bal- 
ance and judge world problems, members of the 
Model League are well able to discuss situations 
without the weight of reality, greed, and self- 
ishness driving them to seek individual rather 
than collective weKare." 

The invasion of delegates for the first assembly 
of its kind on campus was handled by a com- 
mittee of State students headed by Warren 
Bray, '38. Fraternity and sorority houses and 
local inns solved the housing and food problems. 
The two- day convention was concluded with a 
tea dance in the Drill Hall, Saturday afternoon, 
March 19. 



CONNECTICUT VALLEY STUDENT SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE 



On April 23, 1938, the Eighth Annual Conn- 
ecticut Valley Student Scientific Conference was 
held on the campus of Amherst College. Dr. 
Selig Hecht of Columbia University, one of the 
most prominent men in the field of vision, opened 
the Conference with an illustrated lecture, "The 
Nature of Vision." 

Included in the 175 papers and demonstra- 
tions presented at the Conference were seventeen 
papers by students in various scientific depart- 
ments at Massachusetts State College. 

There were 534 guests attending the Con- 
ference, representing eleven Connecticut Valley 



Colleges: Mt. Holyoke (the originator of the 
Conference in 1930), Smith, Connecticut College 
for Women, Connecticut State College, Amherst, 
Williams, Wesleyan, Trinity, Springfield, Dart- 
mouth and Massachusetts State. 

Martha Kaplinsky, '38, acted as chairman of 
the Home Economics Division. 

At the dinner and business meeting which 
closed the Conference, Williams College was 
designated as host for the Conference in 1939. 

The local departmental chairmen, Samuel J. 
Golub, '38, Frederick R. Theriault, '38, Richard

All the papers were exceptionally well done 
and invited attention and praise for the students 
who presented them. They will provide the 
goal for the next conference. 



STUDENT BROADCASTS 



Since January, 1937, students of Massachusetts 
State College have taken part in numerous radio 
broadcasts. Most of these broadcasts were edu- 
cational in nature, with both faculty and students 
participating. The greater part of them went 
on the air from a local station, but not a few 
were over a network. 

The first series of broadcasts in which under- 
graduates took part was entitled "Humanizing 
the Classics". These broadcasts were sponsored 
by the Department of Languages and Literature. 
Messrs. Dow, Fraker, Goldberg, Lyle, Prince, 
Rand, Stratton, and Troy were in charge of var- 
ious broadcasts from January 18, until May 17, 
1937. Students did not take part in all broad- 
casts, but in many of them. For example, the 
prize winners of the Burnham Declamation 
Contest of last year declaimed at the broadcast 
which was directed by Mr. Dow. Another time, 
a miracle play modernized by Professor Rand 
was dramatized by meml^ers of the Roister 
Doisters. The purpose of these broadcasts, as 
the title indicates, was to arouse the interest of 
the listeners in literature and help them to gain 
a better appreciation of it. These broadcasts were 
put on from Station WSPR. 

Another group of broadcasts was called "The 
Old Naturalist". Cast in the title role Professor 
Charles H. Thayer, of the Agronomy Depart- 
ment, assisted by various college scientists, gave 
talks to a group of nature students. The parts 
of these students were played by undergraduates, 
who asked questions of "The Old Naturalist". 
Any technical points which arose were settled by 
the visiting scientist on the program. These 
talks covered a wide variety of topics concerned 
with nature, and included such subjects as earth- 
worms, insects, amphibians, and forest laws. 
These programs started on March 19, 1937, and 
appeared for the succeeding twelve weeks over 
the Colonial Network from station WSPR. 



Beginning on May 16, 1937 and running for a 
month were four talks sponsored by the Place- 
ment Service called "From School to Work". 
The purpose of these broadcasts was to help high 
school students decide upon then- life work. 
Here again, the parts of high school students 
were taken by members of the student body, who 
sought information from Professor Glatfelter, Mr. 
Grayson, and Miss Hamlin of the Placement 
Service. 

A program alo?ig practical lines has been put 
on by the Extension Service under the direction 
of Mr. G. O. Oleson in conjunction with students. 
These discussions have been concerned with 
various subjects, such as home economics, 4-H 
Club work, markets and gardens. Various 
problems have been considered, and solutions 
to them have been offered in an interesting 
manner. 

The College Band has gone on the air twice 
during the past year, once in April, when station 
WBZ invited it to play because of the fine rep- 
utation which it has established; and again, on 
October 28, 1937, for an Alumni broadcast. It 
has become the custom for the band to play on 
one Alumni broadcast a year, and it has been 
very well received. On both programs spirited 
marches were offered, and, in addition, some 
classical pieces jmd the Alma Mater, 

Finally, a unique broadcast of "the man in 
the street" type was sponsored by the Winter 
Carnival Committee on February 10, 1938, in 
order to gain publicity for the Carnival. The 
seven candidates for Carnival Queen selected by 
the students, were interrogated by the announcer 
about the different activities that were to be 
a part of the Carnival program. Stanley Flower 
provided the comedy relief in a very entertaining 
way by his attempts to procure a partner for the 
Carnival Ball. WSPR was the medium for this 
broadcast.

THE NEW CURRICULUM 



This year marked an important and widely 
approved change in the number of credit require- 
ments for graduation. Now, instead of 72 credits, 
Juniors and Seniors are required to struggle with 
a mere 60 credits in order to graduate, that is, 
if they have successfully completed the re- 
quired and elective work of the first two years. 
Under this new plan. Juniors and Seniors are 
now normally carrying five three- credit courses 
or 15 credits a semester. In fact, they are not 
allowed to take more than 17 credits during the 



semester, unless they have an average grade 
above eighty in all previous courses. The mini- 
mum number of credits for specialization in one 
department has been fixed at 15 credits; the 
maximum, at 30 credits. According to Dean 
Machmer, the Chairman of the Faculty Com- 
mittee on the Course of Study, the aim of this 
new system is not less work, but "more effective 
and thorough mastery of definite course con- 
tent."

TOWARD THE A. B. DEGREE 

The present movement for the adoption of the A. D. degree at our College is an expression of 
a strong tendency that has been active here for a number of years. It is part of a slow and steady 
general movement toward the liberalizing of our undergraduate curriculum so as to realize to the 
full the spirit and the tradition of the Land- Grant Colleges. This general movement, comparable to 
similar movements at other Land-Grand institutions, has made itself felt, to some degree, ever since 
the founding of our College; but it has been especially active for at least a decade. 

Three major currents of conviction have united to give momentum to the present movement for 
the Bachelor of Arts degree at the Massachusetts State College: (1). the active sentiment of Alumni 
and other friends of the College; (2) cooperation of the Faculty and of the Administration; and (3), 
the persistent conviction of the student body. The dominant expression for the Arts degree at our 
College has come from the undeigraduates, beginning, approximately, with the class of '27 or '28. This 
expression has arisen from an inner need whichstudents have increasingly felt for the full and free 
development of liberal arts courses on our campus, and for the adoption of the degree that would both 
recognize and consolidate this development. 

The steadily growing wave of student sentiment toward the A. B. degree has been revealed in 
a number of ways, — especially since the spring of '34. Student forums have emphasized undergradu- 
ate concern for the degree. "Various college clubs have gone on record as favoring the degree, — 
among them, the Chemistry Club, the Dairy Club, the Fernald Entomological Club, and the Pre-Med 
Club. Answers to questionnaires submitted to the student body have similarly shown the student 
desire for the Arts degree. The Collegian, too, under the successive editorships of Raymond Royal, '34, 
Theodore Leary, '35, Charles Kshbach, '37, Louis Breault, '37, Fred Lindstrom, ex'38, Julian Katzeff, '38, 
and Emery Moore, '39, has published communications from students and alumni, news reports, and 
editorials — all pointing in the direction of the A. B. degree. 

Two student committees have occupied themselves especially with the matter of the Arts degree. 
The first of these was the special Curriculum Committee, appointed in the fall of 1933 by President 
Baker, and made up of seven members of the class of '34: E. J. Clow (Physical and Biological Sciences) 
Harriette Jackson (Social Sciences), H. C. Potter (Agriculture), Nelson Wheeler (Horticulture), Elizabeth 
Wheeler (Home Economics), Alvan Ryan (Social Sciences), Donald Smith (Physical and Biological 
Sciences). In its report submitted in June, 1934, this Committee recommended the recognition of a 
Division of Humanities, which would offer majors leading to the Arts degree. 



[266} 



TOWARD THE A. B. DEGREE 

(CnilthlUrd) 

The second committee was a logical sequence to the first. Appointed by the Senate to represent 
officially the student interests in the degree, the first Student A. B. Degree Committee began activity 
in the fall of 1935. Calvin Hannum, '36, was chairman. Other members were: Leonta Horrigan, '36, 
Dorothy Nurmi, oG, George Munroe, '36, Shirley Gale, '37, Lucille Monroe, '37, Henry Moss, '37, and 
Carl Swanson, '37. Smce then the Student Arts Degree Committee has been replenished as original 
members have been graduated. To date, students who have served on the Committee are the follow- 
ing: Herbert E. Brown, '38, Karl Burnett, '38, Shirley Bliss, '38, Cyrus French, '38, Ann Gilbert, '38, 
Frederick Lindstrom, ex'38, William O'Donnell, '38, George Haylon, '39, and Arthur Noyes, '40. 

Following its appointment, the Arts Degree Committee worked for two college years in its 
attempts to make a full study of the whole problem. Its members interviewed students, faculty mem- 
bers and officers of the administration ,alumni, trustees, and others interested in the College. They 
made inquiries of state colleges that had already adopted the Arts degree; and, in order to make 
certain that the degree was warranted at our College, they made a careful comparison of our offer- 
ings in the Liberal Arts with those of over a hundred reputable colleges and universities granting the 
A. B. degree. At last, in the spring of 1937, this Committee drew up and, with the approval of the 
Senate and the W. S. G. A., presented to the Board of Trustees, a petition requesting, in the name of 
the student body, the immediate institution of the Arts Degree. The full text of this historic document 
follows: 

PETITION 

I. whereas we, the duly constituted representatives of the undergraduate students of the Mass- 
achusetts State College are firmly convinced: 

(1) That college degrees should correspond to the courses pursued for such degrees; 

(2) That for certain of the courses of instruction, (namely some of those in the Division of 
Social Sciences) offered and pursued at the Massachusetts State College, the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts is the traditional and appropriate degree; 

(3) That similar courses of instruction pursued at other reputable colleges do lead to the Arts 
degree; 

(4) That approximately a third of the students at the Massachusetts State College are pursuing 
such courses; and that the number of these students is increasing; 

(5) That such students, erroneously awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science, find themselves 
inconvenienced and even handicap)ied by lacking the degree consistent with the studies that they 
have pursued, and the professional endeavors that they wish to follow; 

II. Whereas we note: 

(1) That the Massachusetts State College is at present engaged in modification and expansion 
of its curriculum; 

(2) That a careful survey of the present curriculum at the Massachusetts State College has shown 
that the introduction of the degree of Bachelor of Arts for properly qualified students would involve 
little or no immediate special costs, or administrative inconvenience; 

(3) That, far from working to the disadvantages of undergraduates not pursuing courses lead- 
ing to the proposed degree, the adoption of the degree of Bachelor of Arts would actually work for 
their benefit; 

(4) That the introduction of the degree of Bachelor of Arts would thus, without appreciable 
expense, cooperate with the efforts of the College to be of wider, more comprehensive, more representa- 
tive service to the sons and daughters of the citizens of Massachusetts, and, hence, to the Common- 
wealth as a whole. 

HL And whereas we further note: 

(1) That the granting of the degree of Bachelor of Arts is in full harmony with the history and 
the tradition of the Land Grant institutions; 

(2) That the Charter of the Massachusetts State College permits the adoption of a degree such 
as that of Bachelor of Arts, by action of the Board of Trustees of the College, without special action 
by the Legislature of Massachusetts; 

[267] 



:7Ae /t.YS. ©.e^ee 



TOWARD THE A. B. DEGREE 

(Continued) 

(3) That the Admmistration of the College has already emphasized, in public, the soundness 
of the principle of the Bachelor of Arts degree for the College; 

(4) That the Board of Directors of the Associate Alumni of the Massachusetts State College 
have expressed themselves in favor of the immediate adoption of the degree of Bachelor of Arts by 
this college; 

(5) That numerous Alumni, both as groups and as individuals, have expressed themselves as 
heartily in favor of the same procedure; 

(6) That the undergraduates of the Massachusetts State College, irrespective of their own 
immediate lines of study, have more than once declared themselves to be in favor of the immediate 
adoption of the degree of Bachelor of Arts for properly qualified students; 

(7) That the special Student Committee, appointed by the Administration to make a study of 
the undergraduate curriculum of the College, has recommended the adoption of the degree of Bach- 
elor of Arts; 

(8) That the special Faculty Committee, appointed by the Administration to make a similar 
study, has recommended the adoption of the degree of Bachelor of Arts. 

IV. And furthermore, whereas we heartily endorse the sentiment of the Father of Land Grant 
Legislation, Senator Justin L. Morrill, who said: 

"The design was to open the door to a liberal education for this large class [in- 
dustrial] at a cheaper cost from being close at hand and to tempt them by offering not 
only iotind liter.iry imtniction. but something more applicable to the productive enjoyments 
of life. It would be a mistake to suppose it was intended that every student should be- 
come either a farmer or a mechanic, when the design comprehended not only insrtuction 
for those who hold the plow or follow a trade, but such instruction as any person might 
need — ^with all the world before them where to choose — and withont the exclusion of those 
who might prefer to adhere to the cLissics [now more generally known as the liberal arts]." 

v. We, therefore, do hereby seriously and respectfully petition the Board of Trustees of the 
Massachusetts State College to take such action as is necessary for the immediate institution of the 
degree of Bachelor of Arts, to be awarded to the undergraduates who are pursuing courses of study 
traditionally and appropriately associated with that degree. 

At its next meeting, the Board of Trustees acknowledged the student petition by appointing a 
committee of its own to consider the question of an A. B. degree for our College. Before this 
Committee, on Tuesday, December 14, 1936, there appeared several representatives of the student 
attitude, as well as representatives of the faculty and the alumni. Among the students who came 
before the committee were the following members of the Student Ai-ts Degree Committee: Georjie 
Haylon, '39, and Cyrus French, '38. In addition, there were others chosen from the students at-large: 
Barbara Strode, '38, Marion Becher, '38, and John Hoar, '38. Those who heard the students present 
their case commented very favorably upon their manner and upon what they had to say in justifica- 
tion of their Petition for the Arts degree. 

Two days later, on December 16, 1936, the student delegation submitted documents, statistics 
and arguments supplementing the evidence that they had offered during the hearing. Among the 
inclusions were the following: (1) A report by John Hoar concerning steadily solidifying student 
opinion in favor of the A. B. degree; a report by Cyrus French concernmg the strong majority sen- 
timent in favor of the Arts Degree among the M. S. C. scientific clubs; a statement in favor of the 
A. B. degree by Marion Becher, representing majors in Home Economics and the W. S. G. A.; a report 
by Barbara Strode concerning the lively interest in things esthetically cultural at our College; a copy 
of a very significant letter (March 3, 1936), from Dean H. D. Newton, of the Division of Arts and 
Sciences at the Connecticut State College to Carl Swanson, then Secretary of the Student A. B. 
Degree Committee; a summary of the study made by the Student A. B. Degree Committee concerning 
A B degree curricula at one hundred varied, at least reputable, and, in a number of instances, noted 
colleges and universities; an excerpt from an address by Dr. Goldberg to the Essex County Alumni 
(November 1935), in which the speaker pointed out the fundamental errors of those who msisted upon 
practical justifications for the adopting the Arts degree; and a statement from Professor Mackimmie, 
who, speaking as Head of the Department of History and Sociology, justified his sympathy with the 
student petition for the degree. 

[268} 



TOWARD THE A. B. DEGREE 

(ColllilUltMl) 

In her statement, Marion Becher affirmed that, in the interests of the other students to whom 
the Arts degree would bring greater advantages, all Home Economics majors were hoping for the 
adoption of that degree; and that the women students of the three upper classes were "one hundred 
per cent in favor of the degree." 

In his letter, Dean Newton assured Carl Swanson that, as regards the recently adopted A. B. 
degree at Connecticut State College: (1) No cost was connected with the installation of the A. B. 
curriculum; (2) No new courses had been added especially for use in the A. B. curriculum; (3) No 
new administrative or department set-up was necessary; (4) The new curriculum seemed to be 
attracting the attention of the better prepared high school graduates. Dean Newton closed his letter 
with best wishes for the success of the student movement for the A. B. degree at the Massachusetts 
State College. 

The summary of the study made of one hundred colleges and universities concluded that "our 
curriculum is sufficiently broad to make possible our granting an A. B. degree without additional 
courses"; and that a "graduate of M. S. C. who has majored in the Department of Languages and 
Literature, and who receives a B. S. degree upon graduation, has completed a course of study that 
is equivalent (and in many cases identical) to the course of study that a person receiving the A. B. 
degree has completed." 

Hopes for the immediate granting of the A. B. degree, however, were disappointed when, at 
its meeting of Wednesday, January 19, 1938, the Board of Trustees cast a large-majority vote to 
postpone final action of the Petition until September, 1938. Yet student efforts towards the Arts de- 
gree, by this time exerted over a period of about ten years, had not been altogether in vain. At 
this same meeting, the Board of Trustees requested President Baker and Dean Machmer to "devise 
administrative machinery for the granting of the degree." 

Undergraduate opinion was quick to express itself, in an "Extra" put out that very day by the 
vigilant Collegian : 

John Hoar, '38: 

"We should recognize that further postponement in granting the degree is likely to 
be a serious detriment to the college." 

William Graham, '38, President of Interfraternity Council: 

"The trustees are probably doing the wisest thing. At least, they're showing more 
interest than they did last year." 

Barbara Strode, '38, member of the Student Committee on the A. B. degree: 

"I think that the student body of the college will be disappointed. The senior 
class will consider themselves still under a handicap they hoped to be rid of, and we will 
all be uttering silent prayers when the trustees meet again next September." 

Frederick J. Sievers, '38, President of the Student Senate: 

"The decision of the Trustees, I'm sure, is a disappointment to those of our student 
body who have eagerly and hopefully awaited a decision which would have prompted 
more immediate action." 

Gordon Najar, '39, President of the Junior Class 

"The action of the Trustees is a disappointment to the Juniors." 

Marion Becher, '38, President of the W. S. G. A.: 

"It is my conviction that, as students of this college seriously want the advantage 
of the A. B. degree, their appeal should continue to be heard. I hope this decision does 
not mean a negative attitude on the part of the Trustees." 

Mitchell F. NeJame, '38, Editor of the Index: 

"Although I expected some definite action at this last meeting, I believe the 
Trustees made a cautious and wise move in referring action to their next meeting. I do 
hope, however, that at that time they will act, giving serious consideration to the desires 
of the student body." 

[269] 



TOWARD THE A. B. DEGREE 

(C(,ntiiiueil) 

Chairman of last year's A, B. Degree Committee: 

"The decision of the Trustees in regard to the A. B. degree is certainly regrettable. 
The granting of the degree should be, by now, merely a matter of administrative rou- 
tine. The desire on the part of the Trustees to put off their decision may be interpreted 
as a challenge. Since they are making an issue of it, we should no longer consider it 
necessary to treat the matter with caution and delicate whispering for fear of being 
called agitators. 

"I am tempted to say 'come on, let's fight' but perhaps we should be philosophic 
about it; for, after all, there must be a limit to the supply of pretexts for delay, and that 
limit must soon be reached." 

Julian Katzeff, Editor-in-Chief of the Collegian: 

"Once again the Board of Trustees has seen fit to postpone action on the granting of 
the A. B. degree at the Massachusetts State College. Once again, this time apparently 
to make certain of a "mandate from the public", the Trustees have "shelved" the im- 
portant issue of the day. After the opinion of students, faculty, alumni, and friends of 
the college, throughout the state, has been vehemently expressed, this decision was en- 
tirely unexpected. It was a blow to those who expected, confidently, that, after having 
had the opportunity to study the situation the Trustees would act favorably, and that 
the A. B. degree would at last become a reality at the State College. Nothing of the sort 
has happened; and once again we are left to wonder about the ultimate outcome of this 
important issue. 

"Up till now, discussion of the granting of the A. B. degree has been for the most 
part confined to those who are immediately connected with the College. If the Trustees 
now feel that they need reassurance from the people of the Commonwealth, the matter 
must be taken off our campus and brought before the citizens of the State. If the stu- 
dents feel the need of the A. B. degree — and there is no doubt that they do — it is necessary 
for them, as well as for all others interested, to impress the rest of the people of the State 
with the need that the College has for the degree. 

"The Trustees will meet again in September of this year to take a final vote, which 
may be favorable or unfavorable. During the time that elapses between now and next fall, 
it is imperative that public opinion should be expressed once again in favor of the imme- 
diate granting of the degree. Students, faculty, alumni, as well as all the other people who are 
interested in the welfare of Massachusetts State College, should take it upon themselves 
to make their opinions in this matter known." 

In the columns of its regular weekly issue for January 20, 1938, the Collegian offered more 
detailed comment concerning the stand taken by the Trustees with regard to the student petition for 
the A. B. degree: 

"In spite of the fact that the decision of the Board of Trustees came as a surpris- 
ing blow to all of us, the present situation as regards the granting of the A. B. degree 
is not at all without hope, and the outlook for the granting of the desired degree may be 
considered somewhat favorably. 

"Since the time that the present movement first saw light, over ten years ago, much 
progress has been made; and yesterday's action may be regarded as one more step toward 
the granting of the A. B. degree. Since the time that students and faculty first voiced 
themselves in favor of the degree, many arguments against its adoption have been raised 
and discarded. The argument that it is not within the province of a Land Grant college 
to award an Arts degree, that this college did not have the facilities to ofl'er such a degree, 
that a great immediate expense would be incurred, . . . these and many other arguments 
have been raised and discarded in the past. 

"Similarly, the points made yesterday against the immediate granting of the A. B. 
degree will, in all probability, suffer the same fate as those raised in other years. That the 
awarding of an A. B. degree will increase the pressure for admission to Massachusetts 
State College, and thus cause an expensive expansion of the college, need never be a 
reality. In past years, just as at present, we have had enrollment quotas which have been 

[270] 



Oht A.B. ©^^e 



TOWARD THE A. B. DEGREE 

(C.nlinu.Ml) 

adhered to, and which dehnitely restrict the number of students of each year's entering 
class. There is no reason why such quotas could not be sustained after an A. B. degree 
has been granted. A quota regulating the number of qulaified students to be admitted 
each year would safe.guard against any inadvisable expensive expansion which, it is felt, 
might burden the taxpayers of the State. The A. B. degree should be considered, not with 
any fear of an increased expense, but with the purpose in mind of granting an Arts 
degree within the limits of the college's present enrollment. 

"The desire of a 'mandate from the public' which was recommended at the Trustee 
meeting seems unnecessary after the vigorous appeals that have been made for the degree 
by the students, faculty, alumni, and other friends of the college, who are a substantial 
part of the public. The desire for an Arts degree at M. S. C. by the public has been 
expressed in no uncertain terms. 

"If, because of the awarding of an A. B. degree at the State College, a large number 
of students will desire admission here,— and fears to that effect have been expressed,— we 
should have, in that very situation, the 'mandate from the public' What better indication 
that an Arts degree for this college is desired by the general public than that more sons 
and daughters of Massachusetts citizens will apply for admission after an A. B. degree 
is adopted? Do we, then, not already have the 'mandate from the public'? 

"We hope that the Trustees will reconsider their objections to the immediate grant- 
ing of the A. B. degree. In the meantime, once again everyone interested in the College 
should raise his voice in favor of the Arts degree at Massachusetts State College." 

Since January, the students have been acting in response to the Trustees' call for a "pubhc 
mandate". In the Collegian for March 3, 1938, there appeared the following brief but pointed editorial 
by Emery Moore, '39, new Editor-in-Chief of the Collegian, who continues this publication's tradi- 
tional championing of the A. B. degree: 

"BOOST FOR A. B. DEGREE" 

"More to be desired now than any one other influence on the question of the 
A. B. degree is news of accomplishments such as that of William O'Donnell, whose literary 
efforts have been accepted by the American Mercury. 

"When a college of our type, striving for a Liberal Arts degree, can show that there 
are produced from the student body, men and women, who are truly accomplished in 
the so-called 'cultural subjects,' and who have creative ability sufficient to write articles 
accepted by leading literary magazines, it has taken a stride toward an Arts degree, 
which can have a great influence on those people now contributing to the 'public man- 
date.' 

"The growth of the Debating Team, both in membership and program, is one more 
fact which is before the public eye. With such increase in interest as it and various 
other clubs are now enjoying, there will eventually reach the public eye some of these 
activities which denote interest and participation of the student body in cultural affairs." 

Durmg the first week of April the need of an Arts degree at our College was again emphasized 
when Mr. Reardon, State Commissioner of Education, publicly expressed himself in favor of the grant- 
ing of an A. B. degree at the Massachusetts State College. In addition, there is hope in President 
Baker's statement at the Annual Boston Alumni Banquet on April 2: "An A. B. degree from the Col- 
lege—why yes, of course. If the work leads logically to such a degree." The Collegian editor wrote 
concerning the significant statements of Commissioner Reardon and President Baker: 

"After nearly ten years of agitation and thorough investigation on the part of the stu- 
dent body and faculty of the College, hope for the A. B. degree has taken a new rise with 
these statements from President Baker and Commissioner of Education Reardon. . . . That 
President Baker has expressed favor toward the A. B. is welcome news. Commissioner 
Reardon's approval, the appointment of two new trustees with liberal ideas, all point to 
an Arts degree in the near future. The concerted effort of students and faculty has 
partly finished its work." 

[271]

TOWARD THE A. B. DEGREE 

(Conduded) 

Meanwhile, the Student Committee continues to operate. New members: Mabelle Booth ,'39, 
Franklin Davis, '40, John Filios, '40, and Myron Hager, '40 — ^have been added to our ranks. The 
next move it would seem, is the correlating and the close uniting of the three main currents of 
conviction for the A. B. degree: that of the students, that of the faculty, and that of the alumni 
and other friends of the college, especially the parents of students. By adopting a unified program 
of action, they will then be able to marshal that "public mandate" which the Trustees have called 
for. Students have welcomed the news concerning a report of an Alumni Committee, composed of 
Ralph F. Tabor, '16, Chairman; Alden C. Brett, '12, and Joseph Forest, '28, and instructed to make a 
carsful study of our College, — first, in comparison with other Land Grant institutions, and, second, 
in relation to the educational needs of the state. This committee, on the basis of its independently 
conducted study, has unanimously recommended that "The Associate Alumni make every effort to 
secure action by the Board of Trustees favorable to the offering of the A. B. degree." Similarly wel- 
come has been the news that at last one Alumni class, that of 1928, through its President, Jack 
Quinn, has recently appointed a Class A. B. Degree Committee to work in conjunction with the 
students for the adoption of the A. B. degree by our College.

CONVOCATIONS 



Although it may seem difficult at times to 
give up an hour every Thursday morning at 
11 o'clock, what would the students do without 
the opportunity to meet in one body? There is 
much more to be derived from this weekly 
assembly than mere educational benefit; its 
social values are vastly important. Before con- 
vocation itself, you will see numerous groups 
of students who may not have any classes 
together chatting about approaching social events. 
Sororities or fraternities may form their little 
cliques, but no one is ever left standing alone. 
Every one seems to feel himself an essential 
part of a large, vital institution. As the groups 
stand on the steps of Stockbridge Hall or in the 
lobby, there is a feeling of reluctance about 
entering the auditorium; all are engrossed in 
their conversations. At last, however, as the 
final bell rings, there is a surge toward the 
inside doors. The majority of the students are 
seated by eleven o'clock, but there are always 
a few laggards who make themselves conspicuous 
by coming in late. 

The students quiet down as President Baker 
or Dean Machmer rises to make announcements. 



Then other announcements are read by the 
President of the Senate. Sometimes these may 
elicit hearty laughter from students and faculty 
because of incongruous wording of statements. 

The speaker is then introduced by some mem- 
ber of the faculty. Economics and International 
Relations seem to be the most popular subjects 
(from the speakers' point of view, not from the 
students!) In spite of their lack of interest or 
understanding, however, most students are 
courteous enough to put on a semblance of 
attention. 

As the hands of the clock slowly approach 
11:50, a little uneasiness is apparent in the 
assembly. Students begin to shuffle their feet 
or slip on their coats. If the speaker is human 
and at all sympathetic (and most of the speakers 
are) he will quickly come to a conclusion. He 
then sits down amidst an enthusiastic hand- 
clapping contest. On the edges of their seats, 
the students await the final dismissal. Then 
ensues a mad rush into the lobby for copies 
of the Collegian. Then there is an even madder 
rush for the Cafeteria. 



THE "LI BE' 



On campus all roads lead not to Rome but to 
the Goodell Library, or as it is more popularly 
known, the "Libe". Witness the "Abbey" signing- 
out sheet. How often the destination is the 
library! And you may be sure that co-eds 
aren't the only ones who frequent the "Libe." 

But actually, the Library offers something to 
everyone. The studious come here in search of 
a quiet place to study; the socially-minded, to 
meet someone; the musically inclined, to listen 
to the phonograph; the men students, to find 
a date — dare we say the co-eds do the same? 

In the morning, before eight o'clock, there are 
students standing on the steps waiting to be 
admitted. And at ten o'clock at night there is 
a general outpouring of students, mostly in 
couples, in response to the warning bell for 
closing. 

Let's visit the Library in the afternoon. As 
we enter, we notice that the lobby is rather 
noisy. The upholstered settees provide students 
with a convenient place to sit and relax from 
the strains of studying, or just to loaf and talk. 
Immediately in front of us, in the stacks, is a 



student searching for a book, carefully repeating 
its number lest he forget. Another one has taken 
his troubles to the charging desk where he is 
explaining them to a member of the staff. In 
the catalogue alcove some freshmen are learning 
how to look up books. 

In the reference room, newspapers lie scattered 
about on the table. Someone is leaning over 
the unabridged dictionary. Someone else is look- 
ing through the "Reader's Guide to Periodical 
Literature". What is that fellow doing with six 
volumes of the Encyclopedia ByiLiniiica? Prob- 
ably, he is writing his weekly theme for fresh- 
man composition. 

On the other side of the lobby is a reading 
room. How quiet it is! On the wall above the 
shelves of magazines the minute hand of the 
clock audibly jti'ks out the passing minutes. 
Suddenly the high spot of the "Pilgrim Chorus" 
is heard coming from below. Evidently the 
phonograph is in use downstairs in the music 
room. 

Let's go upstairs. In the upper hall we stop 
to look at the current Camera Club exhibit.

THE "LI BE' 

(Concluded) 



We can also look into the College history room 
where all books and papers pertaining to the 
history of the College are preserved. At the 
end of the hall is the "Reserve Cage", where 
books are kept which are to be used for assigned 
reading. Inside, a student is always on duty. 

Beyond is the upstairs reading room. It is not 
so crowded now as it is in the evening, when 
it is often difficult to find an empty chair, espe- 
cially the night before a "Pat's" exam. 

It is never really quiet here. Lights click, 
papers crumple, notebooks snap, and chairs 
scrape. Several couples are studying together. 
A big fellow with an "M" on his maroon sweater, 
judging by his scowl, is less at home over his 
chem-books than he is on the gridiron. Some 



students are diligently studying. Others are ob- 
viously day-dreaming. And there is one in the 
corner taking a nap. 




As we go downstairs again and leave the 
Goodell Library, we can look across the way to 
the Old Chapel in which the library used to be 
not so very long ago. and can better appreciate 
the advantages of the new building. 



LIFE IN THE ABBEY 



What stories the Abbey walls might relate if 
they could talk! What humorous, pathetic, ironic 
tales they would be. New faces appear regularly 
(and often disappear rapidly), but the same 
stories might be told year in and year out with 
only the slightest variations. But let's take a 
peep into this namesake of old Abigail Adams 
and see for ourselves what the life is like. 

In the daytime a more unpopular place is not 
to be found on campus — that is — with the ex- 
ception of a few minutes when the ever looked- 
for mail-man arrives with his cargo of pleasures 
and disappointments. From 8:02 A. M., when 
the last student bangs her way out to an 8 
o'clock class, until dinner time the dormitory 
is as quiet as a real abbey. 

But, classes over, life begins. Down in the 
"center" the "Vic" blares forth D/psy Doodle and 
some swing arrangement of Loch Lomond, while 
an ardent trucking enthusiast shows her less 
accomplished sisters how it is done. Draped over 
the chairs are a few more serious students, en- 
grossed in the latest issues of Lije. One wonders 
how they can concentrate even on that, in such 
noise. 

Down in the laundry the water is running full 
blast from all the faucets. Some one yells in an 
attempt to be heard above the din, "Where's my 
other stocking?" and dives frantically into a 
pile of miscellaneous clothes. 

In the hall the buzzers all seem to be ringing 
at once. From one of the rooms comes "Fresh- 
man — answer the buzzer!" All over the building 
comes the cry "Marie-e-e! — Telephone!" But 
Marie is never to be found. 

But later on in the evening things quiet down 
— they have to. If any unruly student does 
start an outbreak, down comes the stern proctor 
with the sharp command "Girls, quiet hours!" 
Woe be it unto the practical jokers who will 
persist in setting off alarm clocks, making pie- 
beds, and doing all sorts of mischief. 

Late at night the grinds and social butterflies 
alike seem to be bothered by the hunger urge. 
Down the coiTidor to the kitchenettes can bs 
heard the shuffle of bedroom slippers, accom- 
panied by much giggling. A few moments of 
silence, and finally burnt odors of cocoa or tea 
issue forth, proclaiming that a midnight snack 



is in order. Without fail a whole crowd collects 
in the room which boasts the most food. Crackers, 
peanut butter and cheese, cookies and cakes from 
home disappear as if by magic. This kind of a 
party almost always leads into one of the most 
predominate phases of dormitory life — the "biill 
session". 

Now these sessions provide an opportunity for 
all parties to air their opinions about sororities 
and fraternities, religion, movies, professors, and 
almost any other topic of common interest. More 
often than not, they hinge on a deliberation of 
the defects and merits of a certain male element. 
Imagine the embarrassment of the members of 
one "bull session" when they discovered that 
the other side of the campus had been under 
the window listening in. 

Once in a while, frightening blasts of the fire 
alarm late at night arouse the inmates of the 
Abbey to much excitement. Out of the doors 
pour sleepy-eyed damsels with their hair done 
up in curlers, and sleepy scowls on their faces. 
The belle of the ball would scarcely be recog- 
nized in this condition. 

The fire proctor demands, "Where's your flash- 
light and towel?" 

"Uh?" grunts the dazed Freshman. 

But now, shall we examine a typical Abbey 
room? After all, the rooms are used to sleep 
in and even to study in at times. On the door 
is a big sign "Keep Out", but that doesn't mean 
a thing. You walk in just the same. The walls 
are well covered with banners and drawings. 
Draped around the mirrors are dance programs 
and numerous souvenirs of "conquests", while 
"the one and only" smiles affectionately from 
the bureau. Incidentally, each year the awful 
sophomores collect these love tokens, display 
them before the whole dormitory, and make the 
poor Freshmen sing for them, if they want them 
back. But one must admit that the girls rooms 
are, for the most part, pretty and cozy, in spite 
of the fact that "kittens" do like to crawl under 
the beds. 

Yes, life in the Abbey has its ups and downs, 
but it is lots of fun. And every year when com- 
mencement comes around and trunks and bags 
are packed, the girls turn for a last look at the 
home they are leaving and sigh as they remem- 
ber the happy days they have spent there.

I. 0. TESTS 



I. Q. (Intelligence Quotient) tests have become 
as much a part of the first week at college as 
freshman caps. They are just one of those 
burdens which all freshmen must endure. Even 
though the neophyte may have no desire to 
determine the amount of gray matter under his 
skull, he must, nevertheless, submit to the tests. 
Each potential graduate must be classified. He 
is either a moron, or a genius, or an idiot. The 
intelligence tests will give the answer. 

When the time for the intelligence tests has 
arrived, all the freshmen are herded into a huge 
auditorium. Here the newcomer must struggle 
with the bewildering tests which are supposed to 
determine his abilitiy as a student. He finds that 
most of the tests are about the same. Starting 
off with relatively easy questions and problems, 
the tests always end with complicated enigmas 
that Einstein himself would hesitate to tackle. 
The artificial language tests are noteworthy in 
this respect. The freshman may master the first 
few sentences, but when he comes to the last 
few, he is utterly perplexed. Nowhere could 
he find a more confused mass of nonsense. When 
he tries to write Franklin's famous saying which 
begins, "Early to bed, early to rise ..." in the 
artificial language, he may end with something 
like this: 

"Igi tigokogo, igi tiyako nigno umpa nono, 

dodo, esco nutto." 



The bewildered freshman may slip by the ar- 
tificial language tests somehow; but when he 
comes to the mathematics tests, he is trapped. 
These tests go from the mildly insane to outright 
demeniia praecox. If a freshman obtains the 
correct answers, it means one of two things. 
Either he, too, is insane, or he has misunderstood 
the questions. Here is a typical mathematical 
problem which a freshman might receive: 

"If four were sixteen, and five were ninety- 
three, what would the reciprocal of the square 
root of twenty-two be?" 

It is no wonder that most freshmen, thinking 
that they are playing a game of golf during this 
test, try for the lowest score. 

The freshman finds that the rest of the intelli- 
gence tests are as bad as the artificial language 
and mathematics tests. There are memory tests, 
vocabulary tests, and general information tests. 
When the freshman has completed all the tests, 
he is in a quandary. He probably has come to 
believe either of two things. He may believe 
that he is a moron even though he never sus- 
pected his feeble-mindedness before, or he may 
believe that all psychologists are completely in- 
sane. Personally, I favor the latter belief!

ROPE PULL 



Dear Dad, 

We met the enemy and we beat them; they 
are now as wet and as muddy as the water and 
mud of the college pond could make them. Yes, 
sir, we pulled the sophomores through the pond. 
(Confession: I was so hot when the tug of war 
■was over, that I envied the sophomores splash- 
ing in the pond's cool water.) 

Though freshmen have traditionally battled 
sophomores at Mass. State College's rope-pull, 
no freshmen were ever more eager to win than 
we, as we gathered in the cage to organize. From 
the balcony, my roommate, who watched our 
snake dance grow out of the confusion, said we 
were a blurr of freshman caps and old clothes. 
As our snake dance left the cage and paraded 



across the meadow, where we took our positions 
along the heavy rope stretching across the pond, 
we were outwardly gay and confident, and in- 
wardly anxious. While the Senate examined the 
rope and supervised last minute preparations, we 
dug footholds for ourseh-es. Wlien the starter's 
gun exploded, we fell on the rope and then 
pulled to the chant of, "Catch, catch, heave." For 
a hot, sweaty, exhausting eternity we strained on 
the rope; but the sophomores also were straining, 
and the rope only whipped the surprised waters 
of the pond. Then slowly, as the sophomores 
became exhausted, we pulled the center marker 
of the rope toward our shore. When the time 
was up the sophomores were still on the opposite 
bank, but they had lost twenty yards of rope 
and had to swim the pond.

MOUNTAIN DAY 




Mount Toby had been slumbering, its deep 
pine-scented seclusion undisturbed by Outing 
Club members and forestry students. But one 
day in October it was suddenly aroused by an 
invasion of youthful humanity pouring out of 
trucks, cars and busses. Soon mobs of noisy, 
carefree students scrambled and swarmed every- 
where. 

It was Mountain Day! The Alnid Mater had 
rung out on the chapel chime. Classes were 
dismissed for the afternoon, ending the possi- 
bility of further excuses — "I know it was assigned, 
but I didn't prepare it because 1 thought today 
would be Mountain Day." Students had piled 



into busses and trucks near the Abbey, and had 
competed with the rattling by singing lustily. 
Finally they reached their destination. 

Then the long climb began. After the first 
mile or so, the line of hikers became thinned and 
elongated. Finally, the top of the mountain was 
reached. Most of the students rested on the 
grass around the two fire towers, but other 
would-be explorers looked for springs, caves 
and cabins, following a leader cr the conflicting 
directions of those who had "just come from 
there." Many climbed the tower to admire the 
view, display their Tarzanian dexterity, or take 
candid camera shots of their less energetic 
friends. 

As the afternoon began to wane, all descended 
the mountain to Roaring Brook, where they 
satisfied their appetities with cider, coffee, sand- 
wiches, rolls, apples and hot dogs which they 
roasted over campfires. "Twilight shadows deep- 
ened", but soon a bonfire blazed high. Around 
it gathered the tired but happy students to 
cheer and sing "the songs they love so well." 

The crowd gradually dispersed in couples and 
groups to the waiting busses. A few brave souls 
walked the six miles home. At last the mountain 
was deserted, but it, like the students, looked 
forward to the next Mountain Day. 



POND PARTY 



Suddenly I was aroused from the depths of 
a math problem by a cry from the dormitory 
hallway — "The freshmen are being thrown into 
the pond!" A sly grin broke out upon my face. 
Those poor freshmen had been caught without 
their maroon caps, but I, who had not been wear- 
ing my cap, had been wary enough to evade the 
eyes of the Senate members. Without stopping 
to think, I slipped on my jacket and dashed over 
to the section of the pond in front of the Mem- 
orial Building. 

The blackness of the night hid me from pry- 
ing upper-class eyes, as I stood watching the 
events with a feeling of security and condescen- 
sion toward my less fortunate classmates who 



were being heaved bodily into the animated frog 
puddle. All at once, as if in a dream, I heard 
a voice exclaim, "There is a freshman without 
his cap on!" I suddenly became wide awake as 
the upperclassmen milled around me. I struggled, 
pleaded and swore. An unexpressible feeling 
of helplessness spread over me as I described 
half an arc in space prior to my "dip"; then, 
with a resounding splash, I felt myself suckecl 
into the depths of the clammy mud. Wet, cold, 
muddy, sheepish, and resentful, I hurried back 
to my room without waiting to get one of those 
"peachy haircuts" my brethren were given — "just 
a little fuzz." And I remembered a quotation I 
had read once — "Pride cometh before a fall." 



HELL WEEK 




"Bang! Wham!" 

No, nobody's been shot; that's just two big 
brothers warming up their paddles on the 
posteriors of two pledges. The time is Monday, 
March 14, 1938, at seven in the morning; the 
place is the fraternity house, and the occasion is 
the beginning of Hell Week. These two fresh- 
men pledges have arrived fifteen minutes late 
for the setting up exercises scheduled for 6:45 
A. M. On the sixth and last stroke of the paddle, 
one big brother, in an attempt to give his all for 
his fraternity, cracks six inches of wood off the 
end of his paddle. He claims that the paddle 
was weak anyway. With this parting shot still 
in their minds, the two tardy pledges are sent 



[276] 



Ca^e^ £t^ 



HELL WEEK 

(Coiiohuird) 



scurrying after their more fortunate brethren, 
ah-eady on their way to breakfast. 

It often occurs during the day that a pledge 
has the misfortune to meet one or two fraternity 
brothers between classes. Each brother assumes 
his prerogative of aslcing the neophyte for a 
cigarette, a large wooden match, and several 
unbroken Necco wafers. Woe to the dog who 
hands the frater a broken wafer! 

Next morning the pledge delegation is at the 
fraternity house promptly at 6;45; that is, ail 
but two initiates who arrived at 5 o'clock to 
polish shoes and brush clothes. Until 7 the 
whole group is put through a very rigorous 
routine of exercises, the agony being in charge 
of a very capable sophomore. The exercise 
consists of such manly feats as full-knee bends 
on one foot, running in place with the knees up 
to the chin, duck-walking up and down a bank- 
ing, and doing twenty-five or more "push-ups". 
If a pledge is unwise enough to feel tired during 
the course of the exercises, he is allowed to 
"rest"; that is, he is directed to stand on his 
right leg, extend the upper part of the left leg 
forward, let the lower part of the leg hang loose 
from the knee, place the right elbow on the 
left knee, the chin on the heel of the hand, and 
relax. (Try it!) 

This "neophyte slaughter" continues through 
the week till Friday night. Then, feeling that 
they should illustrate their real ingenuity in 
humiliation, the brothers invite all of the pledges 
to attend a conference to be held that evening. 
Almost as soon as the prospective members begin 
to arrive, the fun commences. Till about ten, 
the brothers are entertained by neophytic en- 
deavors at poetic recitations, strip-teases, vocal 
solos, and wrestling and boxing matches. Then 
an hour of reckoning is held, and each pledge is 
called to account for his misdemeanors of the 
past week. According to the extent of his short- 
comings and the whim of the judge, a penalty 
of whacks with a paddle is then meted out to 



each one. Then, feeling that the neophytes need 
lelaxation in the free, open air, the members 
inform them that a hike will take place the 
following evening. 




1=^ 



Accordingly, Saturday evening finds the group 
starting out from Thatcher Hall, walking out to 
the railroad tracks, counting out 1,792 railroad 
ties to find the next clue, then walking, walking, 
and ividking. About three-thirty in the morning 
they meet several of the fraternity brothers on 
a lonely road. The first impulse is to seize and 
quarter the devils who are responsible for this 
wet, cold, snowy outrage; but on discovering 
that the fraters are there to lead them to food, 
the pledges check the impulse. The food, as it 
turns out, consists of hot dogs roasted over a 
campflre. Needless to say, this repast tastes as 
pood to the cold and hungry group as a chicken 
dinner would at home. The snack has a great 
deal to do with the almost cheery spirit, which, 
in spite of the weather, prevails on the five-mile 
trek home. Once back at the fraternity, cold, 
wet clothes are changed for warm, dry ones, 
frowns are changed for tired smiles; and the 
animosity which has prevailed during Hell Week 
is a thing of the past. 

—William T. Goodwin, '41 



THEME WRITING AT TWO 



From the one light left burning, the long cor- 
ridor sinks away into a shadowy gloom. Since 
midnight (two hours ago) scraping chairs, clos- 
ing doors, and rising voices have faded into a 
silliness weighted with sleep. To me, as I sit 
propped at my desk, the unreality of it all is 
emphasized by the metallic ticking of the clock 
on the bureau; this is the time for clocks to tick 
and corridors to brood, seemingly free of all 
human existence. I am out of place. 

In my room, I stare down at a half finished 
theme. Over and over, I read the last sentence; 
my mind revolves slowly about the idea but 
cannot penetrate it. My thumb aimlessly rolls 
a twisted shred of an eraser, and the words 
"Let Dave Do It" look up monotonously from 
the advertisement on the blotter. The bitter 
smoke of my pipe feathers my mouth, and a 
rank smell of stale steam and smoke deadens 



the air. Now, the steam pipes begin to knock 
and grind. As though trying to sneak up on 
me, the noise starts softly, then works into a 
crescendo of banging, and giving up the attempt, 
dies away; but I know it will start again, and 
I wait for it. It tortures my nei-ves exquisitely, 
and my hands twitch until the "thing" finally 
stops. Finally silence settles again, and even the 
rushing wind outside dies away. 

_ As time moves on, I begin to despair of ever 
finishing the theme, of ever being able to say, 
"That's done", and go to bed. I cannot think. 
Goading myself on, consciously, and offering 
myself sleep as a reward, I blink my smarting 
eyes and find words and form sentences. Out 
of the silence, I form sentences. At last I finish 
what I call a theme (I hope the professor will!). 
And now ... to sleep! 

William F. Warren, '41

CROSS-SECTION 




MORNING—! 

BRRRIIINNNGGG. "Oh, somebody set that 
alarm early again! What, it can't be seven 
o'clock." 

Slowly dragging one foot after the other, John 
Frosh wearily makes his way up the corridor, to 
begin another day. The sounds of the wash- 
room, the splash of running water, the bristling 
of tooth-brushes, the gentle slap-slap of wash- 
cloths on tender faces, the patter of the showers 
upon naked bodies, suffice to bring the unhappy 
freshman partly awake. He notices the varying 
stages of dress and undress of the late risers, 
the expressions on their faces, from those with 
eyes half- closed with sleep, hair rumpled, a 
sour expression marring their visages; to those 
with faces shiny from recent washing, hair 
plastered down, a smile wrinkling the corners 
of their mouths, as they prepare to depart for 
the morning meal. He sees the sun shining 
through the window. Another day has begun. 
He must be off about his business. "Cheerio, 
mates, see you at breakfast." 

HASH—! ! 
"Oh, good night! a line of waiting people to 
the front door again this morning. Must I always 
stand in line? I stand in line at every meal. 
I stood in line to get my military uniform, to 
pay my bill, to get my registration card, to gei 
my registration card signed, even to see the 
President and be officially welcomed. I stand 
in line every time I go to a game or a show. 
Now, here I am in line again." Tray clashes 
on tray. Glasses clink. Here someone tips over 
his orange juice, the orange liquid spilling all 
over his tray and himself. Here someone stops 
at a table to speak to a friend. The low hum 
of conversation is broken by an exclamation as 
some one notices that the hands of the clock 
are at seven-fifty. A few late arrivals dash in 
just before the line closes. Gradually, the noise 
of conversation dies out as most of the students 
disappear classward. Only the hurried clash of 
dishes is heard as the boys clean up the tables. 
Soon even that is gone. 



MORE HASH—! ! ! 

Euclid alone has looked on Beauty bare — It is 
eight o'clock in the Math, building. A few 
students have arrived in the classroom early, to 
study till the roll is called. The others filler in 
gradually, talking in loud voices, discussing the 
day's assignment or the latest choice bits of 



campus gossip. By the time the instructor ap- 
pears, only a few seats are empty. All but two 
of these are filled as he prepares his papers for 
the day's work. He calls the roll, and, as he 
comes to the name of the boy who should be 
occupying one of the empty places, the sound 
of feet, pounding up the stairs is heard; and the 
voice that belongs to the owner of the feet 
breathlessly answers "Here", as the boy himself 
crashes headlong into the room. Five minutes 
later the other fellow walks in nonchalantly, and 
assumes his seat with a bored expression on his 
face. The day's routine has begun. 




' l^l'l^ ^ 




MASS ACTION 

Chemistry, the hated enemy of the many, the 
beloved of the few, takes foremost place with 
all. Poor John Frosh attempts in vain to take 
coinplete notes as the learned professor mumbles 
on and on of protons, atoms, electrons, nuclei, 
and other incomprehensible objects of which the 
dazed freshman has only a vague idea. The 
lecture room is waiTn, it reeks of hydrogen sul- 
fide or something. The murmur from the front 
of the room continues. There is a vague un- 
comfortable stirring, a shifting of feet. The seat 
is hard. John's thoughts drift to more enjoyable 
scenes. The lights grow dim. Soon he is fast 
asleep. In a moment he is awakened by a rude 
kick from behind. Again he strives desperately 
to appear aware of the proceedings, and scribbles 
something in his notebook. It is not long until 
the lights fade again. He will wake up at the 
end of the semester to find that he is passing 
with a flat sixty, because the professor does not 
want him in his class again next year. 



LET SCHOOLMASTERS PUZZLE THEIR BRAINS 

In English class a grammar test is returned. 
John hardly dares look at his. It has a red "45" 
neatly marked at the top. John wishes that 
there had been a decent grammar course in the 
high school he came from. He reflects un- 
comfortably that if it weren't for good grades 
in themes, he wouldn't be passing the course. 
The instructor is lecturing on paragraphing. He 
quotes Cardinal Newman, and immediately there 
is a two-man discussion between the instructor 
and that know-it-all in the back of the room. 
The class listens in disgust. Finally, the lecture 
is lesumed, and is ended with a reminder of the 
topic of the next theme, as the class streams 
out the doors.

ONTOGENY RECAPITULATES—! 

Botany lecture is over. Hear the boys rave! 
They worship the unconventional doctor, with his 
hatred of all that is feminine, his unorthodox 
ideas of God and man, his beliefs in fourth, 
fifth, and nth dimensional worlds. It is the 
most interesting course they have ever taken. 
But wait till the lecturer falls from metaphysics 
to onions. Wait till later in the year when there 
will be no time for expounding profound theories. 
Wait till the freshmen find themselves unable 
to take notes fast enough to keep up with the 
lecturer. Then Botany will be just another 
course to grumble at. Life will go on as before. 



RAPID TRANSIT 

"Isn't it a glorious day? The sun is shining. 
Of course, there is a cloud over there, but 
nothing will come of that." John is on his way 
from French Hall to Stockbridge. As he tops 
the rise at the north of the College pond he 
can see students going in all directions on the 
various walks. The crunch of many feet on the 
gravel and the hum of voices, is broken by an 
occasional shouted greeting to a friend headed 
somewhere else. As a group of girls passes, the 
freshman gets a faint whiff of powder. He feels 
his books slipping from his arm as he runs to 
catch up with the gang ahead. As they climb 
the steps of Stockbridge, the bell in the Old 
Chapel strikes the hour. All dash madly into 
the classroom just as the instructor attempts to 
close the door. 



ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE! 

In Orientation, John Frosh listens vaguely to 
a sketchily scientific e.xplanation of the universe 
and its units, from super-galaxies down to cor- 
puscles. He can't go to sleep, the seats are too 
uncomfortable. He could listen to the lecture; 
but why should he? He has it on good authority 
from the sophomores that he can pass the course 
merely by copying the outline as it is written on 
the board. He feels the heat of the room, packed 
to capacity with other bored freshmen. White 
is hotter than red. Therefore, Venus must show 
phases. He gazes at the back of the neck of the 
girl in front of him. He draws pictures on his 
desk-arm. He doodles all over the pages of his 
notebook. He jumps up when the bell rings — 
like a punch-drunk pugilist, and is away to the 
next class. 



—FOOD FOR POWDER, FOOD FOR POWDER! 

Now the sun is gone; there is a cold breeze, 
and John has to tote an eight-pound rifle around 
a muddy field for fifty minutes. He comes to 
attention as the sergeant barks a command. He 
snaps the bolt clear out of his rifle at "Inspec- 
tion Arms". He swears inwardly at the blankety- 
blank that snapped up the cut-off on his rifle. 
He carries a heavy pair of boots up and down 
the field to "Hun, 'Too, Hree, Hor; Hun, Too 
Hree, Hor", till he no longer has any feeling in 
his legs. Again he greets with relief the end of 
the period. 



ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY 

In convocation John Frosh assumes his seat. 
President Baker, Dean Machmer and a speaker 
are on the platform. The speaker is just or- 
dinary, neither more nor less boring that usual. 
About ten minutes before convocation is over, 
two or three of John's classmates take it into 
their heads to leave. Immediately the rest of the 
freshmen start hissing those who have more 
courage than they. Mitchell NeJame looks dis- 
gusted. The sophomores look amused. The 
seniors look bored. President Baker looks in- 
dignant. Dean Machmer looks worried. The 
speaker just looks. With the end of convo, comes 
the rush for Collegians, and the dash for the 
hashhouse. 

MENS SANA IN CORPORE SANO 

At one-fifty-five the freshmen must report for 
hygiene. What a course! John assures himself 
and the world at large that he knows more 
about the subject than that doctor with his 
eternal "we further recognize", who, "if he does 
know anything about the facts of life, is too 
bashful to tell it." Oh, well, cheer up, John, 
the course lasts only half a semester. 

WHERE, OH WHERE, HAS MY LITTLE DOG GONE! 

John is trying to find his friend Bill. He's 
been to the library, where some are studying 
and many are relaxing, but Bill isn't there. He's 
been to Bill's room at North College, but Bill's 
rommate hasn't seen him since breakfast. He's 
been to the Memorial Building, found it thick 
with smoke, bridge players, and couples gazing 
soulfully into each other's eyes; but Bill is not 
there. He's been all through the Physical Ed. 
building with its trophy room, its cage, lighted 
by the afternoon sun, its locker room, bristling 
with sweaty athletes, its pool, spotted here and 
there by splashing boys. But Bill is not there. 
He has searched all over campus, by the pond 
covered with ripples from a light westerly breeze, 
down the walk by Goessmann Laboratory, getting 
a faint whifl: of some mysterious chemical, along 
the walk from Stockbridge to Alumni Field, over 
the culvert under which the overflow from the 
pond trickles, by the College Store, in front of 
South College and to the football practice field, 
where at last he finds Bill, deeply intent on 
watching the scrimmages of the sport he intends 
to star in. 

RUNNERS GOING ROUND THE TRACK 




Having carried his message to Bill, John, out 
for track, goes to the locker room of the Physical 
Education Building to change into his track 



{281] 



eMe^e£ile

(Coiu-ludcd) 



outfit. Thence down to the cage to run around the 
oval two or three times and be checked off. Back 
again to the locker room and into the shower 
room, where a quartet of voices tries to render 
some of the college songs. Down a short flight 
of steps, a short run, a jump, a headlong dive, 
and he lands well out in the pool. Back in the 
locker room he weighs himself carefully, dresses, 
argues with Bish, drinks of the best water on 
campus, and departs. So much for official exer- 
cise. 



THE HEART OF A UNIVERSITY 

Next stop is the library. Listen to that boy 
and girl over in the comer. If Basil happens by 
they'll catch it. John goes back down stairs to 
look up a couple of words for English. Then, 
upstairs again to study. What a lot of women 
in here today. Say! wait a minute, there's one 
he hasn't noticed before. She's got something 
there! He'll have to try to date her up. Lookl 
She smiled! Is that Mary with her? Here's 
where he gets introduced. No. They're leaving. 
Oh, well, better luck next time. Guess he'll go 
out among the shelves. He enjoys just browsing 
around to see what he can find. Anyway it's 
nearly time for supper. Guess he'll go back 



and stand in line again. He ought to see George 
and argue that point out tonight. 

SANCTUARY 

Two hours later all is quiet in Thatcher 
except for the loud tick-tock of the clock. 
The room smells of tobacco smoke. John 
and his roommate have been trying to study. 
Suddenly the loud sound of voices in altercation 
is heard down the hallway. The door of the 
next room opens, and a positive voice announces, 
"It's after seven-fifteen." All is quiet again for 
a while. A shuffling of feet and a few sibilant 
whispers are heard, then a sharp explosion. The 
door of the next room opens again and the boy 
with the positive voice pops out like a jack-in- 
the-box: "Whawt the blaank yew tryin' tew 
dew, blow the door off?" Again silence reigns 
supreme, but not for long. A bull-session de- 
thrones it. And it has to center in John's room. 
Later, much later, when the doiTnitory is quiet, 
he finds time to study history for tomorrow. That 
finished, he crawls into bed. He tosses and turns 
for what seems hours, wonders if he'll pass that 
math exam tomorrow, hopes the German teacher 
will not pull a surprise test, thinks of the girl 
he saw today, finally, sleeps.

JOINT COMMITTEE ON INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 



Regulating intercollegiate athletics at M. S. C. 
and setting policies for the athletic program, is 
the duty of the Joint Committee on Intercolle- 
giate Athletics. This body governs all matters of 
finance, fields, construction, and athletic policy. 

Among its several duties the Committee must 
approve of all intercollegiate athletic schedules, 
of all managerships, and of awards made for 
excellence in athletic competition. These are 



but a few of the matters considered each year 
by the Committee. 

The joint committee is composed of the follow- 
ing members: the student managers of each of 
the recognized Varsity sports; two members of 
the faculty appointed by the President of the 
College; three alumni of the college; the Director 
of Athletics; the Dean of the College, and the 
President of the college ex officio.

INTERCLASS ATHLETIC BOARD 



The Interclass Athletic Board is composed of 
eight members, two elected from each class. Its 
purpose is the promotion of interclass athletics 
and the awarding of class numerals and certifi- 
cates to members of winning class teams in the 
various sports carried on. Numerals and cer- 
tificates have been awarded this year to sopho- 



mores in football, and to freshmen in cross- 
country, basketball, and soccer. Other sports 
such as interclass tennis have been suggested 
and worked on, but interest seems to favor inter- 
fraternity sports and upperclassmen are difficult 
to organize for competition in interclass sports.

THE SEASON 



The 1937 varsity baseball team completed one 
of State's most successful years on the diamond 
when it closed its season with a 3-2 win over 
Amherst for its eighth straight victory. The 
season's final record was eleven wins out of 
fourteen games. 

Thirty-five candidates answered Coach Eb 
Caraway's first call for cage practice. The squad 
included five pitchers and eight catchers. Prac- 
tice continued indoors until the first few days 
in April when the squad took to the outdoors in 
preparation for the season's opener with Williams. 

On Saturday, April 17, the season opened on 
the home field as Fran Riel, pitching his first 
game for State, set the Ephmen down with one 
hit as State won 3-0. In both the first and third 
innings Fred Riel opened with a single and 
double, respectively, and scored on singles by 
Russ Hauck. Hauck also scored in the third on 
Towle's single and Mildram's long fly. The 
game was saved in the seventh when, after the 
only hit of the game and a walk, Couper at 
shortstop speared a hit and doubled a Williams 
runner at first to end the threat. 

The following Monday, however, State was set 
down by Conn. State at Storrs with three hits 
to lose 5-0. Fran Riel, playing in the outfield, 
Towle and Lavrakas were the only Statesmen 
to garner hits while the Nutmeggers were col- 
lecting eleven off of Lyons and Bokina. Couper 
was the fielding star of the day handling eight 
chances at shortstop without a miscue. 

Playing again on the home field on Saturday, 
April 24, the Statesmen lost to Trinity, 8-1. Six- 
hit pitching by the Trinity hurler and eight 
State errors combined to lose the game for the 
Statesmen. Outstanding was the home run of 
Mickey Kobrosky, Trinity outfielder, who later 
gained fame in the 1937 Collegiate All-Star New 
York Giants Football Game. 

Coming up in the last half of the ninth with 
John Lavrakas on base and two outs, Fred Riel 



singled sharply down the third base line to bring 
in the winning run in State's 5-4 win over 
Bowdoin Friday, April 30. Bucky Bokina went 
the route for the locals giving up five hits. 
Bemben led at bat with a triple and single in 
three times up. On Wednesday, May 5, Fran 
Riel took over the pitching burden against Am- 
herst in the third inning with the bases loaded, 
and proceeded to strike out Benny Myers, Am- 
herst captain. After Riel allowed only six hits, 
a scratch single in the tenth inning set the 
Statesmen down 5-4. Bemben hit a terrific 
home- run in the third inning. 

A week later John Bemben in his first mound 
appearance set a strong Wesleyan team down 
with two hits, and State won 2-0. The Riel 
twins featured the game with two double-steals. 

Fran Riel set Worcester Tech down with two 
hits, and every Statesman but Bemben hit safely 
as State won 16-1, on Thursday, May 20. Two 
days later Norm Blake set New Hampshire down 
with three hits to give State its third straight 
win 6-1. On Tuesday, Bokina allowed Tufts 
only four hits, but a dropped ball by Towle 
gave the Jumbos two runs to make the score 
3-2. The next day the Statesmen went on a 
13-hit spree while Bemben was giving the 
Springfield Maroons two hits to win 8-0. Morey 
provided the fielding gem of the day when he 
speared a sure home run. 

Playing away on the road Fran Riel held 
Vermont to six hits for a 5-3 win, and Norm 
Blake set Union down with four hits for a 13-0 
win. Steff and Bemben were the leading hitters 
on the trip. 

State closed its season with its eighth straight 
victory when on Saturday, June 12, John Bem- 
ben, after pitching twelve innings, hit a double 
to score John Bush with the winning run, 3-2. 
After the game Fred was re-elected captain for 
the 1938 season and on the following morning 
he was presented with the Southern Alumni 
Baseball Cup.

ATHLETICS FOR ALL 

Defending intercollegiate athletics as one of the 
greatest forces for character building yet de- 
veloped by modern education, athletic directors 
all over the country have touched off a half- 
truism that seems destined to explode in their 
own faces. It is true that intercollegiate athletics 
build character. Football, baseball, basketball, 
and the other common games of the college sport 
world are all important forces in the building 
of many qualities. But who do they build them 
for? In the average college or university some 
thirty to two hundred students take part in the 
active intercollegiate athletic program. What 
happens to the thousands who sit in the stands, 
who take no part in the competition? 

The average college student, the average stu- 
dent at Massachusetts State College, comes in 
contact with intercollegiate competition only as 
far as his student activities ticket will carry him. 
The character-building qualities of sporting 
events, boasted by athletic directors, is lost to 
him. What should be done for the student in 
the stands, is the question that boomerangs back 
to the physical education heads. Are athletics 
for the many or for the few? The obvious 
answer to this question, now asked on college 
campuses all over the country, is that there 
should be a program of sports for all — a progranr 
that gives the average student a chance to get 
the same benefits that his more skilled, phys- 
ically superior contemporaries have enjoyed for 
many years. 

Massachusetts State College has recognized this 
important problem and with a program of 
"athletics for all" is endeavoring to offer every 
student an opportunity to develop proficiency in 
some sporting line. Intra-mural athletic sched- 
ules are an accepted program of the Physical 
Education Department while non-competing 
teams in winter sports, boxing, wrestling and 
fencing are supported. Limited funds keep the 
department from developing a program that offers 
athletic competition to all, but the college is 
headed in the right direction. 

Intercollegiate athletics are a necessary part 
of the college program, and are a strong force 
in the moulding of character, as the directors 
contend; but the most important phase of the 
collegiate sport program concerns the college, 
itself, and the thousands of students whose 
athletic ability, or rather lack of it, limits their 
sport participation to intra-mural games. To 
realize the true objectives of the physical edu- 
cation directors, athletics for the many must be 
as well supported as athletics for the few.

THE SEASON 

(Continued from piige 288) 



With a few outstanding stars but not enough 
balanced strength, the 1937 spring track forces 
finished their season without a win but boasting 
three new marks for the record books. Led by 
Captain Ted Thacker, the Maroon scored well 
in every meet but lacked the necessary man- 
power. 

M. S. C. — B. U. 
The season opened April 24 with a 77-58 loss 
to Boston University on the Hub school's 
Aubumdale oval. The Terriers were paced by 
Solly Nechtem, basketball star, who turned in 
winning performances in the sprints and the 
Jiigh jump. 

M. S. C. — TRINITY 
The second meet of the season was lost to the 
Blue and Gold of Trinity on the local track as 
the Hartford one-man-track-team Truex dom- 
inated every event from the century to the 
javelin. Captain Thacker turned in a winning 
race in the 440 and Norm Grant cracked the 
State pole vault mark with a leap of 11:9.8 feet 
for first honors. Mike Little turned in a winning 
880 for the locals when he edged Tom McLaugh- 
lin of the victors in the last few feet of the race. 
Wally Green, Bill Riley, Spike Roberge, Larry 
Pickard, Mitch NeJame and Corky Adams were 
others who added to the local total. 

M. S. C. — W. P. I. — TUFTS 
The following week the Statesmen pulled the 
wrong type of a surprise when they trailed both 
Worcester Tech and Tufts in a triangular meet 
631/2, 56, 461/2. In this meet Grant again soared 
to record heights to cop the pole vault honors 
but the other Maroon point-winners had to be 
satisfied with seconds and thirds. 

EASTERN AND N. E. INTERCOLLEGIATES 
Coach Derby sent a few of his outstanding 
men to the Eastern Intercollegiates at the Uni- 
versity of Vermont and the Maroon gained a 
seventh place ranking among the New England 
colleges, when Norm Grant tied for first honors 
in the pole vault; Bill Riley gained a second in 
the high jump; Mike Little placed second in the 



half-mile, beating many of the best small college 
middle distance runners in the east; and Corky 
Adams threw the javelin for fourth place honors. 
The next week the State representatives at the 
New England Intercollegiates at Harvard were 
held pointless by a fast field. 

M. S. C. — CONN. STATE 
The season closed with a 751/3-59% decision 
to Connecticut State College at Storrs, May 29, 
as Bill Riley and Wally Green jumped to a new 
college record on 5:11 in the high jump. George 
O'Brien also posted a college mark when he 
tossed the hammer 136 feet, 51/2 inches. Roberge, 
Stevens, and Laphsmi gained a clean sweep in the 
discus while Thacker and Little finished up front 
in the 440 and 880 events. 

Mike Little, stellar half-railer, was elected cap- 
tain of the 1938 team at the close of the season.

THE SEASON 



Although its record showed only one victory 
and one tie in nine games, yet the 1937 State 
Football team played hard, clean ball all season 
against top-flight teams, week after week with- 
out a let-up. It was a team which maintained 
fine spirit throughout although they failed to get 
any sporting breaks. The play of Captain Fred 
Sievers in the line and George Niden in the 
backfield was outstanding all season. 



M. S. C. 



A. I. C. 



Opening with American International College 
at Springfield on September 25th, State was 
held to a 6-6 tie. State had two touchdowns 
called back before Towle ran back a punt forty 
yards to the five-yard line and Steff scored to 
equal the touchdovim the Yellow Jackets had 
made on an intercepted pass. Linden missed the 
point after touchdown and Fred Sievers' would- 
be winning touchdown on a blocked kick was 
called back giving the Statesmen only a tie. 



M. S. C. — BOWDOIN 
Against a strong Bowdoin team on the follow- 
ing Saturday, State played superior ball through- 
out the first half. Sievers recovered a Polar 
Bear fumble on their 34, but State lost the ball 
on an intercepted pass. Roberge later recovered 
another Bowdoin fumble, and State carried 30 
yards to Bowdoin's three, but here the State at- 
tack, led by George Niden, bogged down and 
they were unable to score. In the second half 
the teams were pretty evenly matched except 
for the first and closing minutes when Bowdoin 
made two touchdown marches to win 12-0. 

M. S. C. — CONN. STATE 
Unleashing a powerful attack, the Connecticut 
State football team defeated the Statesmen 36-7 
on October 9th. The Nutmeggers scored a field 
goal in the first quarter, two touchdowns in each 
of the following periods, emd added a fifth in the 
final quarter before Towle completed two long

passes, the second to Al Smith, who scored from 
the five-yard line. 

M. S. C. — R. I. 
Although showing their best form of the early 
season the following week at Kingston, the 
Statesmen wers defeated 12-6 by a strong Rhode 
Island team. In the opening minutes State re- 
covered a Ram fumble on their 20, and on the 
first play Towle passed to Larkin in the end 
zone for a score. State played superior ball 
throughout except for two 60-yard Ram marches 
in the second and third periods which gave R. I. 
the lead 12-6. A blocked punt in the fourth 
period gave the Statesmen an opportunity to tie 
the score from the Ram 34-yard line, but the 
Rhode Island defense tightened, and the States- 
men lost the ball on downs on the 25. 

M. S. C. — W. P. I. 
State went down 14-0 before a revamped W.P.I, 
team on a rain-drenched field in Worcester, Oc- 



tober 23rd. Perkins recovered a Tech fumble 
on their 30, and Towle immediately tossed a 27- 
yard pass to Tappin, but four plays failed to give 
the Maroon a score, and Tech, taking the ball 
on their 20, marched 80 yards for a score. A 
59-yard punt run-back in the second period gave 
the Engineers their second touchdown. 

M. S. C. — AMHERST 
The Amherst game October 30th found a top- 
rate Sabrina team winning 41-6. A 59-yard run, 
a 20-yard pass to State's three, and two line 
plunges gave Amherst their first touchdown in 
the opening minutes, and a place-kick gave them 
a 7-0 lead, but State came right back as Towle 
threw a 35-yard pass to Putnam, who carried 
five more yards to the five. Niden picked up 
a yard, and then Santucci scored off-tackle. 
Amherst, however, unleashed a fast running at- 
tack to score twice in the second period, twice 
in the third, and once in the fourth.

THE SEASON 



M. S. C. — COAST GUARD 
Playing the following Friday night at the Coast 
Guard Academy, State had three touchdown 
drives stopped only inches from the goal line 
before Zelazo scored around end from the one- 
yard line for a State touchdown, but Linden 
missed the point-after. The Middies came right 
back at the start of the second half to score seven 
points. State marched 80 yards, with Niden and 
Santucci starring, to the Middies' five before 
they were held for downs, and the Middies 
won 7-6. 

M. S. C. — R. P. I. 
In a driving rain. State won its initial victory 
over R. P. I. 13-0 on Dad's Day, November 13th. 
Towle and Niden marched 55 yards for State in 
the first quarter and the latter made the first 
score of the day on a line plunge. Late in the 



third quarter Niden and Santucci carried sixty 
yards with Santucci getting away for two 20- yard 
runs, and Towle scored again for State on a line 
buck. Santucci bucked over the extra point. 

M. S. C. — TUFTS 

In the season's final, State lost a heartbreaker 
to Tufts 7-0. Halfway through the first period 
Tufts scored from the 26 on two plays, and 
although State, with Niden and Towle doing 
most of the carrying, carried from their own 
22 to Tufts' six, they lost the ball on a fumble. 
Later Santucci and Towle made three first downs, 
but Santucci was held inches from the goal line. 
George Niden's 55-yard placement punts with a 
rain-soaked ball was the feature of the game. 

At the close of the season. Cliff Morey, out- 
standing end for two years, was elected Captain 
of the 1938 team.

THE SEASON 



Finishing a seven-game schedule with four 
wins, two losses, and a tie, the varsity soccer 
team fell just short of its pre-season forecast 
of being the best local hooters' club in recent 
years. 

M. S. C. — CONN. STATE 
The Statesmen jumped into an early lead in 
the New England Intercollegiate Soccer League 
when they defeated Connecticut State 7-0, in the 
season's opener on October 9 th. The Maroon 
outclassed the Nutmeggers all the way as Bud 
Rodda scored four goals supplemented by single 
tallies by Sam Golub, Don Osley, and Tom 
Lyman. 

M. S. C. — DARTMOUTH 
On the following Monday, the Statesmen de- 
feated a strong Dartmouth team 2-1. Don Silver- 
man scored both goals for the Maroon, his first 
after five minutes of play, and his second goal 
in the final period broke up a two-period tie. 
Captain Vin Couper, Don Osley and Bob Fein- 
burg played outstanding ball. 

M. S. C. — YALE 
Traveling to Yale on October 20th, the States- 
men lost the game 2-1. Playing on a mud-soaked 
field. Bud Rodda scored for State in seven min- 
utes, but late in the second quarter the Bulldogs 
pushed a goal by Bob Feinburg. The score re- 
mained one-all until late in the final period 
when a fluke goal from a scramble in front of 
the net gave Yale a 2-1 victory. 



M, S. C. — TUFTS 
Three days later the Maroon came back with 
a vengeance to defeat Tufts 4-1. Don Silverman 
scored first with a goal scramble, and then Bud 
Rodda sank two goals, one on a corner kick from 
Don Osley and the second on a pass from the 
latter. Captain Vin Couper scored the final 
State counter on a penalty kick before the 
Jumbos made their only score. 

M, S. C. — AMHERST 
In the town rivalry game with Amherst on 
October 29th, the Sabrinas won 4-2, scoring both

their winning goals in the second overtime 
period. They got away to a two-goal lead in 
the second period, but Bob Cain scored for the 
locals just as the half closed. In the third period 
Tom Lyman sank a long drive to tie the score, 
but the Sabrinas came through in the second 
overtime period to give State its second defeat 
of the year. 

M. S. C. — TRINITY 
On November 6th, Bud Rodda regained a tie 
for leading New England scorer when he scored 
three goals, one in the second period and two 
in the fourth, in State's 4-1 victory over Trinity. 
Bob Cain made the other State tally in the third 
period. 




M. S. C. — WESLEYAN 
In the final game of the season the Statesmen 
fought a 4-4 tie with Wesleyan to gain fifth place 
in the league standing. Don Osley scored three 
goals for State and Bud Rodda made the other. 
Meanwhile, playing goal for goal, Wesleyan ran 
up four markers to tie the score and two over- 
time periods failed to produce any further score. 

The season was officially closed with a ban- 
quet at which eleven letters were awarded, and 
Bud Rodda was elected captain of next year's 
team. The highlights of the season were sum- 
marized as follows: 

Corky Adams — aggressive halfback from 
Springfield — the songbird of the seniors — 
recently renamed "Sorky". 

Bob Buzzee — his throw-in was the envy of 
all opponents. 

Vin Couper, Captain — led the team throughout 
the season and got a black eye for his trouble. 

Bob Feinburg — his shift to the goalie's position 
had plenty to do with the successful season. 

Sam Golub — another Springfield lad who came 
through for M. S. C. He worked hard — to 
grow a moustache. 

"Don Osley" — late as usual.

THE SEASON 



Led throughout the season by Captain Mitchell 
NeJame, Larry Pickard, and Obie Ingram, Coach 
Derby's varsity cross-country team enjoyed a 
successful year with three dual wins out of 
five meets, a second in the Connecticut Valley 
championships, and a sixth in the New England 
In tercollegiates. 

M. S. C. — NORTHEASTERN 
Opening the season on October 9th, the States- 
men, still in early season form, were nipped by 
Northeastern 27-28. Larry Pickard came in 
ahead of NeJame and Ingram, who followed him 
respectively, for third place. Evi Scholz placed 
seventh for State, and Ed Slater's brilliant sprint 
at the finish gave State the ninth place also. 

M. S. C. — M. I. T. 
On the following week State, running against 
M. I. T. in Boston, won 23-32. NeJame, Pickard, 
and Ingram tied for first for State, Mike Little 
placed eighth, and Scholz and Bixby tied for 
ninth. Ed Slatei hurt his ankle on the second 
mile, but finished up ahead of four other runners. 

M. S. C. — W. P. I. 

On October 23rd, the Maroon traveled to Wor- 
cester where Larry Pickard and Captain NeJame 
set a strong pace all the way in the Worcester 
Tech meet and again triple-tied with Obie 
Ingram for first place. Mike Little, Larry Bixby, 
and Evi Scholz tied in eighth place for State. 



CONNECTICUT VALLEY CHAMPIONSHIPS 
In the first running of the Connecticut Valley 
Championships here at M. S. C, the Maroon 
followed a strong Wesleyan team to gain second 
place ahead of Amherst, Conn. State, Trinity, 
Springfield, and Coast Guard. Pickard finished 
best for the locals with a seventh, followed by 
NeJame at tenth and Ingram at eleventh. 

M. S. C. — AMHERST 
The above meet was also scored as a dual meet 
with neighboring Amherst and the Maroon gained 
a 23-36 win. Moyer of the Jeffs was credited with 
first, but Pickard, NeJame and Ingram counted 
before the next Amherst score. 

NEW ENGLAND INTERCOLLEGIATES 
The Statesmen placed sixth on the following 
Monday at the New England Intercollegiates in 
Boston which was won by Rhode Island, with 
Tufts and Maine in second and third places. 
Pickard was 14th, NeJame 21st, and Ingram 23rd, 
which places, along with the other State scores, 
gave the Statesmen a total of 154 points. 

M. S. C. — R. P. I. 
In the season's closing meet against R. P. I., 
Captain Mitch NeJame turned in the finest per- 
formance of his career as a State runner, although 
State lost 26-31. NeJame was the only runner 
who could keep pace with Hitchccx of Tech, 
and he finished second, 25 yards ahead of Pickard. 
Little placed ninth for State in a sprint finish. 

The season was closed with a banquet at the 
"Manse", Northampton, and Lawrence Pickard, 
outstanding during the last two years, was el- 
ected as Captain of the 1938 cross-country team.

THE SEASON 



Winning eight games and losing six on a four- 
teen game card that held some of the stiffest 
competition in this section, the State Basketball 
team wound up a successful season to finish in 
eleventh place in New England college hoop 
circles. 

The Maroon averaged better than 47 points a 
game for a total of 663 as Fred Rial and Ed 
Czelusniak took top local scoring honors with 
158 and 125 tallies respectively. John Bemben 
was a point behind Czelusniak with 124. 

MIDDLEBURY AT M. S. C. 
State ODened its season with a 46-27 win over 
Middlebury. Fred Riel, who scored 12 points 
that night and 23 in the first two games sank 
the opening tally, and Zelazo immediately fol- 
lowed with another counter. Play slowed down, 
however, and Middlebury rallied to trail at the 
half by only 21-18. A second team started in 
the next period; Fran Riel and Rudge sank five 
baskets to give State a lead from which they 
were never headed. 



M. I. T. at M. S. C. 
State defeated the Engineers on the next night 
53-29. John Bemben, who scored 16 points in 
the first half, opened the scoring as he dribbled 
down the floor to sink one from underneath the 
basket. He followed immediately with two floor 
shots and another short shot. State rolled up 
20 points before Tech scored its second basket. 
In the closing five minutes of play, Bokina, 
Putnam, and Southwick sank five baskets for the 
second team. 

SPRINGFIELD at M. S. C. 
On Saturday, January 8, the Statesmen were 
nosed out 38-37 by Springfield College on Jack- 
son's last minute basket. Fran Riel and Zelazo 
gave State a 7-1 lead, but Springfield kept plug- 
ging away and the score at the half was 16-15 
for Springfield. The Indians jumped away to a 
28-20 lead in the second half, but Ed Czelusniak 
and Fred Riel led a rally to within three points 
of the leaders, and then baskets by Zelazo and 
Putnam gave the home team a one-point lead, 
but Jackson scored his final counter of the night, 
to give him 15 points, and the game ended a 
few seconds later. 




M. S. C. at WILLIAMS 
The next Wednesday the team traveled to 
Williamstown, where they were defeated 36-21. 
Although the Maroon was pretty well bottled up, 
Zelazo and Bemben gave State a 6-4 lead at the 
quarter and 11-9 at the half. Fred Riel started 
the second half with long baskets, but then the 
Ephmen, led by Captain Mike Latvis, who netted 
19 points, went on a scoring spree. Repeated 
attacks by the Statesmen were blocked continu- 
ally and the game ended with the Statesmen far 
behind. 

M. S. C. at AMHERST 
After a 63-31 romp over R. P. I. on Saturday, 
the Statesmen went to the other end of the town 
on the following" Wednesday to meet Amherst. 
Fred and Fran Riel started the scoring, but the 
Jeffmen, paced by Captain Schweizer, soon ran 
up a lead which the Statesmen nearly overcame 
when Fred Riel, went on a lone scoring spree to 
make the score 16-14, but the Jeffmen came right 
back to make the score at the half 26-16. State 
came back with a rally that was climaxed when 
Fred Riel sank a basket and Czelusniak two foul 
shots to put State within two points of Amherst, 
but Michell and Meyer put Amherst ahead

again. State again rallied and a basket by Bem- 
ben tied the score at 35 all. Then Michell missed 
a foul shot which would have put Amherst in 
the lead and Ed Czelusniak, with a minute to 
play, sank a long shot from the floor. The game 
ended when Keesey of Amherst was about to 
shoot, and State won 37-35. 

M. S. C. at WESLEYAN 

On January 22nd, the Maroon hit another snag 

against Wesleyan and went down to a 57-23 

defeat as Morningstar, Phelps and Sonstroem led 

the Cardinal attack for the second straight year. 

RHODE ISLAND at M. S. C. 
Against Rhode Island on Wednesday, the Riel 
twins and Bemben led in the victory over a 
club which boasted only one defeat and New 
England's two leading scorers, but after the lead 
see-sawed for the first ten minutes, State built 
up a 13-point lead at the half and they were 
never headed afterwards. State won 54-48 with 
Fran Riel scoring 17 points, Fred Riel 12, and 
Johnny Bemben 15. 

IVI. S. C. at COAST GUARD 
Paced by Captain Ed Czelusniak, the State 
hoop team racked a 48-27 win against the Coast 
Guard Academy in Billiard Hall, New London, 
Saturday night. 



With the opening whistle, Czelusniak and 
Bemben spearheaded a fast attack, and the 
Maroon kept widening the margin until the end 
of the game. 

In the second half, Fran Riel caged some spec- 
tacular shots as the locals staged an effective 
display of team-work, passing and shooting at 
a fast clip. Frigard used two full teams and two 
extra men, and only three of the entire squad 
used in the game failed to score. 

AMHERST at M. S. C^ 
The following Wednesday the Amherst court 
combine came down here to play and succeeded 
in annexing a 47-43 thriller that went into an 
overtime period. With Amherst leading by eight 
points in the last three minutes of play, Fred 
Riel scored six points and Fran Riel sank th3 
tying counter with only seconds left to play. 
In the overtime Fred Riel put State ahead with 
a basket from the floor, but Kydd, Amherst sub- 
forward, sank another to tie the score at 43 all. 
Then Keesey sank a long basket from the center 
of the court and Kydd followed with another to 
give Amherst a four- point winning margin. 

M. S. C. at CONNECTICUT STATE 
In spite of Ed Czeluniak's 19 points, the Maroon 
bowed to Conn. State on Saturday night, 60-51.

keep State in the running but they trailed 29-18 
at the whistle. In the second half, State scored 
heavily and almost rallied to tie the score but 
they could not quite overcome the 18 points each 
scored by Peterson and Pringle, two outstanding 
New England scorers. 

TUFTS at M. S. C. 
On February 23, Tufts jumped ofi' to an early 
15-2 lead, but State fought on and the half ended 
with State trailing 38-21. In the second half, 
however, Bemben, Fred Riel and Czelusniak 
went on a scoring spree to bring the Maroon 
within seven points of the Jumbos at the quarter 
whistle. Fred Riel, Zelazo and Czelusniak scored 
for State and Fran Riel sank a set shot to give 
State a 51-49 lead with four minutes to go. Then 
after Benny Collier, Tufts stellar guard, was 
banished for fouls, State had little trouble in 
rolling up a 61-52 win. 

M. S. C. at WORCESTER TECH 
Apparently troubled by the Engineers' zone 
system, the home team lead 31-17 at the half. 
In the second half. State rolled up 20 points in 
ten minutes to trail 45-42 with eight minutes to 
go. Baskets by Fred Riel and Putnam gave 
State a 49-48 lead with five minutes to play, but 
then McEwan scored two baskets and Tech 
went on to win, 59-55. 

M. S. C. at BOSTON UNIVERSITY 
In the final game of the season Ed Czelusniak 
played the best basketball of his college career 
to lead his team to a 65-61 win over B. U. 




Racking up another upset for the Maroon, he 
paced a second period spurt that caught the 
Terriers' defense powerless and went on to score 
28 points, five more than Boston's celebrated and 
high-scoring So! Nechtem. 

At the Insignia Convocation of Thursday, May 
5, the Dean announced the election of Stanley 
Zelazo as Captain for the coming year. Stan 
has shovim himself from his first game last year 
as a sophomore, as a rugged, fighting, aggi-essive 
player. An excellent defense and floor man, he 
possesses more scoring power than the average 
guard. 

At the same time, Fran Riel was awarded the 
Samuel B. Samuels cup for the best average in 
foul shooting, and John Bemben was given the 
George Henry Richards trophy as the most im- 
proved player on the squad.

THE SEASON 



Boasting a record of five wins in the six-meet 
schedule, Coach Joe Rogers' 1937-38 swimming 
edition compiled the best record of any Maroon 
team of the past years. Faced with a seemingly 
hopeless lack of material at the start of the 
season, Rogers was able to form a combination 
that bowed only to strong Williams. 

M. S. C. — B. U. 
The squad opened with an easy win over 
Boston University to the tune of 47-28, when 
both Captain Dean Rounds and George Pitts, 
produced two firsts each. 

M. S. C. — W. P. I. 
The following week Worcester Tech's swimmers 
fell easy prey to the Statesmen with Anderson, 
Calo, Rounds, Morse, and Howes all taking 
honors in the swimming events, while Salmela 
and Palumbo finished 1-2 in the dives. 

M. S. C. — WILLIAMS 
The only loss of the season came on January 
22, when the Purple of Williamstown took every 
first to dunk the locals 55-20 in the local pool. 




M. S. C. — WESLEYAJSr and 
M. S. C. — COAST GUARD 

On February 15, Pitts paced the Maroon to a 
close 45-30 victory over Wesleyan. Three days 
later the balance of the team was again shown 
when Gard Anderson smashed the Coast Guard 
pool record in the 220 free style, and the relay 



outfit of Howes, Anderson, Pitts and Rounds 
splashed to a new record as State swamped the 
Middies, 58-17. 

M. S. C. — CONN. STATE 
The dual season ended as the locals outclassed 
Conn. State in the local chlorine 49-26. 




N. E. INTERCOLLEGIATES 
Finishing behind Brown, Williams and triple- 
tied Bowdoin, Amherst and Springfield, the 
Statesmen made a good record in the New Eng- 
land Intercollegiates at Amherst with George 
Pitts gaining five of the Maroon's nine points.

THE SEASON 



Boasting an upset win over Northeastern, one 
of the strongest clubs in New England, a tie 
with Army, and a 4-2 defeat of A. I. C, Coach 
Lorin Ball's 1938 hockey edition finished with a 
fair showing for the seven game schedule. Led 
by Captain Bill Bullock, ace defenseman, the 
Maroon made a good showing in every game 
and finished strong to make up for the early 
season losses. 

M. S. C. — N. H. 

Opening January 5, at New Hampshire, the 
Statesmen put up a strong battle before bowing 
to the Wildcats 6-4. Outstanding for the locals 
were John Lavrakas, who rang the bell three 
times, and Captain Bullock who played a strong 
defensive game and added the other State 
marker. 

M. S. C. — HAMILTON and M. S. C. — BROWN 
Handicapped by poor ice conditions that al- 
lowed but little practice, the Statesmen were 
forced to meet Hamilton and Brown before their 
attack was functioning on all six. On January 8, 
Hamilton took a 2-0 thriller from the Maroon at 
Clinton as Cliff Morey, State goalie stole the 
day, with a goal-studded performance of 33 
saves. Three days later the Ballmen dropped a 
5-2 decision to Brown at Providence as Linden, 
Niden, and Towle looked best for the local cause. 
A game with Union was rained out. 



M. S. C. — A. L C. and M. S. C. — ARMY 
The Statesmen gained their first win of the 
season on the local ice at the expense of A. I. C, 
4-2 with Bullock again the star. January 15, 
the Maroon traveled to West Point for the annual 
game with Army, and after two overtime periods 
the score remained 3-3 and was entered in the 
books. Lavrakas, Linden and Towle were high- 
lights in the State machine. 

M. S. C. — NORTHEASTERN and 
M. S. C. — B. C. 

The outstanding upset of the season was scored 
on January 18, when the highly-touted North- 
eastern University club with its equally highly- 
touted Johnny Byrne bowed to Massachusetts 
7-3 as Linden, Bullock, Lyman, Mayo, Towle, in 
fact the whole team enjoyed a field day. The 
season closed with an anti-climax loss to a Lefty 
Flynn-paced Boston College team on the College 
pond 6-3. Off to a bad start the Statesmen were 
not able to catch the Newton team. 

M. S. C. — Amherst 

An informal game was played with Amherst 
College as a Winter Carnival attraction and the 
locals gained a 7-4 win over the Lord Jeffs who 
played very well considering their lack of prac- 
tice. Next year the Statesmen will be led by 
Cliff Morey, but the only varsity men returning 
are Mayo and Lyman and the outlook is anything 
but bright.

THE SEASON 



The winter track season opened with the 
relay team, attending two meets at the Boston 
Garden. In the opener on January 29, at the 
Knights of Columbus Meet, the State team placed 
third behind Boston University and Worcester 
Tech. The State runners in the mile relay were 
Rossman, Little, Boyd and Guenard, in that 
order. 

In the second meet, the B. A. A. Meet on 
February 12, the State team came in second 
ahead of Colby, but trailing the Tufts Jumboes. 
Mike Little, running second man for the Maroon, 
registered the best time for the State team, and 
his work in these two meets indicated his po- 
tentialities as a short distance runner although 
in the past he had run only the half and one mile 
distances. 

Winning two dual meets and finishing second 
in a triangular encounter. Coach L. L. Derby's in- 
door track forces finished the 1937-38 season 
with a better than average record, losing only 
to Wesleyan in the dual competition and to Tufts 
in the three-cornered meet. 





CONN. STATE at M. S. C. 

The Statesmen opened February 19, with a 
surprise win over Connecticut State 41V4 to 
to 39% in one of the most thrilling finishes ever 
witnessed in the local cage. Going into the run- 
ning broad jump eight and one half points be- 
hind the Nutmeggers, the Maroon needed all 
three places to gain a victory. Dick Towle, Bill 
Riley and Bill McGowan came through in the 
clutch to sweep the event and the locals were 
able to eke out a win. Captain Mike Little raced 
to a new college record in the 1000 yards against 
Connecticut, covering the distance in 2:26. 

W. P. I. at M. S. C. 
The following Tuesday weak Worcester Tech 
visited Amherst and had to be content with 25% 
points in bowing to the Derbjrmen's 46% total. 
Against W. P. I. the Maroon made a clean sweep 
in the dashes, the mile and the 1000 yard events. 
Bob Feinburg tied his own mark in the 35 yard 
dash with a clocking of 4.1. 

M. S. C. and W. P. I. at TUFTS 
At Medford the next Saturday, Tufts took all 
but one first place to swamp State and W. P. I. 
74-28-8. Roberge captured the pole vault for 
the Maroon's only win, while the Engineers took 
but one second and five thirds.

WESLEYAN at M. S. C. 

In the final meet of the season three Statesmen 
posted new college records but the balance of 
Wesleyan won out 72^^ to 41%. Captain Little 
turned in a record breaking 2:04.2 half mile in 
the local cage while Gus Guenard broke the 
440 mark and Wally Green reached a new height 
in the high jump. 

SPRING OPENERS 

The record of the spring track team at pres- 
ent shows defeats at the hands of Boston Univer- 
sity and Trinity, both of which colleges boast 
well-rounded track teams. 




B. U. at M. S. C. 

Opening at Alumni Field on April 23, the 
locals lost a 76-59 decision to B. U. The Maroon 
showed considerable strength in the dashes and 
field events, but not enough to outscore the Ter- 
rier runners. In the dashes Bob Feinburg and 
Ed Rossman finished one-two in the 100 with 
Guenard placing third and two-one in the 220, 
respectively. Mike Little placed second for State 
in the 880 and Healy took a third in the mile run. 
In the hurdles, Merrill placed third in the 120 
and Joyce second in the 220. Bill Roberge broke 
the only record of the day throwing the discus 
126 ft. 2 in. Riley and Green tied for first in 
the high jump with a height of 5 ft. 8V2 in. and 
Wally Green tied Palumbo of State for a second 
in the pole vault. Corky Adams won the jave- 
lin throw for State with a heave of 164 ft. 11 in. 
and Tappin won the broad jump followed by 
McGowan. Frank Slesinski was the final point 
wiimer for State with a third in the hammer 
throw. 

M. S. C. at TRINITY 

On the following Saturday, the team travelled 
to Trinity where they were defeated 76-50. 



Featuring Captain Mike Little, who took two 
firsts, the State track team went down before 
a powerful Trinity aggregation on the Dutch- 
men's saucer at Hartford. 

Little won both the quarter and half mile for 
local high point honors, turning in a 52.1 in the 
440 and a 2:05 in the half. 

Corky Adams set a new State College record 
with the javelin, whipping the spear 170 ft., 2Vi 
inches. 

Pacelia soared 11 ft. 3 in. to win the pole vault, 
and leaped 21 ft. 2% in. to take the broad jump 
to star for the Hilltoppers. 

Outside of Little's victories, the Maroon was 
out of things so far as track events were con- 
cerned, making most of their points in that 
section on second and thirds. 

The Derbymen did better in the field events 
Sievers winning the discus and Riley the high 
jump while Roberge and Tappin helped out in 
the shot and broad jump.

THE WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 

The Women's Athletic Association was founded on the campus early in the spring of 1925, for 
the purpose of providing athletic recreation for the women students. Its function is to regulate the 
women's athletic activities; and it provides opportunities for all, as all the women students automatic- 
ally become members. The Association is divided into clubs, one for each sport; with the clubs the 
contests are regulated and awards made. The Women's Athletic Association awards keys to the girls 
outstanding in the separate sports. The Executive Committee of the Association is made up of the 
managers of the different clubs, who cooperate in presenting an attractive recreation program to the 
students.

INTRAMURAL ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES 

The purpose of intramural activities is to help all students acquire favorable attitudes toward 
recreational sports, to educate the students concerning the outcomes of participation in the different 
types of sports so that they may select wisely and according to their needs, and to encourage all 
students to acquire regular habits of athletic recreation. As only a small percentage of the students 
constitutes the varsity squad in any one sport, the opportunity for the less skilled student to get into 
competitive athletics can only be made possible through intramural athletics. The intramural athletics 
are also of social importance; they bring together in a friendly spirit of rivalry, students from all 
branches of the college. Participation in intramurals gives a better appreciation of varsity contests 
and awakens interest in them. The program of intramurals is presented for the purpose of supplying 
every pupil with enjoyable physical recreation. No man is fully educated who has not learned to 
play, to compete, to keep himself physically healthy. It is the purpose of intramural athletics to help 
teach this important division of education. 

In interfraternity sports all teams are placed in divisions which play round robin schedules. All 
active members and pledges with proper standings are eligible for competition with the exception of 
varsity players. Leadership in the different sports brings cumulative points to a fraternity; to the 
fraternity which accumulates the greatest number of points, certain points are given towards the inter- 
fraternity cup. But the number of men which a fraternity has placed on the various athletics teams 
also enters into this scoring. 

For the year 1936-1937, Theta Chi won the interfraternity athletic competition by acquiring 496 
points and winning two first places. Kappa Sigma scored a close second by accumulating 455 points. Com- 
petition included meets in touch football, soccer, basketball, volley ball and baseball. The champion 
in touch football was Theta Chi, which scored a total of 120 points, 36 points more than any other 
fraternity. Kappa Sigma took the honors in soccer, leading the field by 36 points, and Phi Kappa Sigma 
won the volley ball contest by a large margin. Sigma Phi Epsilon won the basketball tourney by a 
large lead. Theta Chi won the baseball championship by a margin of 50 points, and Kappa Sigma 
contributed the largest number of varsity men. 

This year Alpha Sigma Phi is leading the league with 356 points and the soccer and basketball 
championships, followed closely by Q. T. V., the football winners, with 350 points. The baseball tourney 
will close the interfraternity year. 

MINOR SPORTS 

During the past year the campus has evidenced the growing interest of minor sports. Last 
spring a tennis tourney was held which drew 32 entries and ran three weeks. Paul Putnam, '38, 
was the medal winner defeating Bob Mosher, '40, in the finals. 

This winter the college sent an eight-man ski team up to the Middlebury College Winter Carnival, 
but due to adverse weather conditions, the team did not compete. The team was composed of Quast, 
Farnsworth, and Green, '38, Smart, '39, and Fuller, Van Meter, O'Brien, and Jones, '41. 

At present the preliminary rounds of a campus golf tourney are being run off to choose a 
six-man team to send to the New England Intercollegiates at Oakley. Last spring Johnson and 
Crowley, '37, MacCurdy, "38, and UUman, Burgen and Alfieri, '39, attended the tourney and Bill John- 
son placed seventh in the tourney.

COMMENCEMENT 



1 937 



1937 Qjomjmjejnjcjejtnejni 




DIARY OF THE SIXTY-SEVENTH COMMENCEMENT 



Friday, June 11 — 

As the long awaited completion of my college 
career approached, I found that a wall had been 
gradually built up between myself and actuality, 
which could only be surmounted by a pseudo- 
actuality — memory. 

"Something there is that doesn't love a wall, 
That wants it down." 
wrote a neighbor. In the future we will pause 
at the gate of the campus to look back; we 
will come in our mind's eye to recall these 
happy days now ending; and, so that the picture 
may hold more to be cherished, we feel that 
before we leave we owe a tribute, as did those of 
the class of '71 at the First Commencement as 
expressed in William Wheeler's Class Ode: 

"Ere these sacred bonds we sever 

Ere we roam life's shadowy sea, 
To the golden clasp, a tribute! 

Friendship, be our praise to thee!" 

Yes, that's it — the "golden clasp". 

The week of festivities opened with the Horse 
Show. The first and second squadrons, spon- 
sored by Misses Muriel and Marjorie Cain res- 
pectively, were led by Cadet Majors Anthony 
Nogelo and Leroy Clark. Dick Towle of Co- 
hasset and Fred Whittemore, Jr., of Canton were 
judged the best men from the junior and senior 
class of Horsemanship by the Cain sisters. After 
the show of local saddle horses, which was won 
by Mrs. Floyd A. Thompson of Amherst, the 
Co-eds displayed their knack for Horsemanship 
with Doris Jenkins of Shrewsbury gaining first 
place. Our sophomore class was represented by 
John J. Galvin of Northampton as winning con- 
testant. "Kid" Gore's son Harold came through 
with the laurels for the Children's Class. The 
final competition was senior pair-jumping, which 
was won by Tony Nogelo and Louis A. Breault. 



Floyd Townsley, '38, of Ashfield won the 
Stowell Cup for the greatest improvement in 
Horsemanship; and the trophy for excellence in 
Marksmanship was presented to Warren S. Baker 
of Hanson. 

An unfortunate accident occurred during the 
senior jumping exhibition, when Allen S. Ingalls 
of Methuen received a broken collar bone as the 
result of a spill at hurdle three. 

Tonight those gifted in oratory entered the 
Flint Oratorical Contest. Al Swiren, '38, won 
the thirty- dollar first prize with his speech, 
"American Liberty — What Has Become of It?" 
Louis Breault received the fifteen- dollars second 
prize with "Our Democracy and the Free Press". 
After the presentation of the speeches, attention 
turned to the judges: Walter E. Prince, Chair- 
man, Dr. Maxwell Goldberg, Vernon P. Helm- 
ing, all of the College and R. W. Haskins, Prin- 
cipal of Amherst High School. 

Saturday, June 12 — 

One could not possibly attend all of the various 
meetings and reunions held today. The Roister 
Doister Breakfast, several Alumni meetings, and 
fraternity and class reunions occupied the morn- 
ing. In the afternoon there was a concert by the 
College Band, the Varsity baseball game with 
Amherst College, an Alumni Tea, and supper 
engagements at the fraternities. I heard the 
band and went to the game. There's something 
about a game when you're sitting on the winning 
side, that gives it an added interest, especially 
if the score ends up 3 to 2 — as in this game. This 
evening the Roister Doister Plays were pre- 
sented The Tumbler of Noire Dame; The Last 
GepHire; and Peggy Plum. Professor Rand can 
well be proud of the actors in these three plays 
of Cornelius A. Wood.

COMMENCEMENT 



p. S. I found this article by Dr. Goldberg in 
the Alumni Bulletin: 

1937 COMMENCEMENT PLAYS 

It was almost midnight when the curtain was 
drawn at the close of the Commencement offer- 
ings of the Roister Doisters. Yet, though most 
of the spectators had been in Bowker Auditorium 
since before nine o'clock, they did not hasten 
to the exits. They rather remained — to applaud, 
in the hope that they might be favored with at 
least one curtain call. 

The Roister Doisters had added one more dis- 
tinctive success to their already impressive roll 
of achievements. 

Credit for the effectiveness of the production 
must be widely distributed. Much of it goes to 
the maker of the plays, Mr. Cornelius Ayer 
Wood, of Andover, Mass. The creations of this 
enthusiastic amateur's dramatic imagination af- 
forded a wide range of theme, setting and mood. 
The first play, "The Tumbler of Notre Dame", 
took us back to the monastic life of the Middle 
Ages, with its incongruous mixture of winebibb- 
ing and self -mortification; of greed and spiritual 
generosity, of time-serving and service to Eter- 
nity made manifest in time. The second play, 
the "Last Gepuire", recalled to us the strife of 
the Irish Revolution of 1918 by depicting what 
happened when, during the tumult, a colleen, 
working on a piece of intricately patterned lace 
that had already cost her mother her sight, 
looked up long enough to fall in love with one 
of the hated Black-and-Tan, and to suffer grief 



and blindness in the chaos of confllicting loyalties. 
The third play, "Peggy Plum", transported us 
to the indefinitely medieval locale of enchanted 
castles, fairies, witches, and young damsels of 
gentle lineage, who spoke in startlingly realistic 
and modern accents. 

But if Mr. Wood has won much credit as 
creator of the plays, others are to be noticed for 
what they did to realize the potentialities that 
he created: Professor Rand, director of the 
production; the technical staff, especially for the 
lighting effects in "Peggy Plum"; and the actors. 

Each of the actors deserves specific comment; 
yet since that cannot be, I must content myself 
with mention of the following: the versatility of 
Robert D. MacCurdy, '38 of Watertown, Lawrence 
Levinson, '38, of Arlington, and John Hoar, '38, 
of Amherst; the vigorous interpretation of young 
Nora, in the "Last Gepuire", by Lucille Monroe, 
'37, of Southbridge; and the effective character 
work of Donald W. Cadigan, '39, of Greenfield, 
B«ryl F. Briggs, '39, of Ashburnham, Barbara 
J. Strode, '38, of Marblehead, and Olive Norwood, 
'39, of Worcester. Nor must we forget Mrs. Alan 
Chadwick, who contrived to keep little David 
Snyder and Casandra Caraway awake until their 
entrance at the very end of the third play. 

Two years ago, in the pages of the Alumni 
Bulletin, I congratulated the Roister Doisters for 
their successful handling of "On Corpus Christi 
Day". I now congratulate them again for suc- 
cess in a far different type of dramatic under- 
taking.

DIARY OF THE SIXTY-SEVENTH COMMENCEMENT 



Sunday, June 13 — 

Gold medals were awarded to Cornelius A. 
Wood, Harvard, '17, of Andover, for his contri- 
bution to the academic life of the College in the 
form of the Commencement Plays which he 
wrote; to Louis W. Ross, '17, of Newton, for his 
work as architect in charge of the construction 
and design of Thatcher Hall, the men's dorm- 
itory built in 1935; and to Bernard H. Smith, '99, 
of Brooklyn, whose contribution was a tribute 
to his friend, Dr. W. E. Hinds, noted entomologist 
made manifest in the gift of a chime of 10 bells. 
This was the main business of the Academics 
and Varsity Club Breakfast which was held this 
morning. 

It was an ideal day for Baccalaureate Sunday; 
and while the fellows were seated on the lawn 
awaiting the start of the procession, and rem- 
iniscing away the time, several attempts were 
made to give an all-inclusive definition of 
college. One cited the familiar definition which 
states that college is the place were you learn 
more and more about less and less until you 
finally know everything about nothing. But the 
one which received the most response was 
similar to the above but perhaps it embodied more 
local color in its underlying thought: "College is 
the place where you learn to do more and more 
in less and less time until you soon can do 
everything in no time." 

The procession began at 4:30; and the exercises 
were preceded by a scripture-reading by the 



ed) 

Dean. Valensin's beautiful Minuet followed the 
scripture. "Freedom Through Truth" was Rev- 
erend Penner's Baccalaureate Sermon: "If we 
are ever to be freed from ignorance, hatred, 
superstition, prejudice, tyranny, exploitation, 
injustice, or anything which holds the mind and 
the body of man in bondage, we must allow 
men everywhere to pursue and seek the truth. 
And we must allow it in every field — in religion, 
in philosophy, in sociology, in economics, in busi- 
ness, and in politics. . . . You who are grad- 
uating from this college have learned something 
of what it means to seek truth and pursue it in 
laboratory and classroom. If your college ed- 
ucation has given you what it should, it has 
given you a love for truth." Thus ran the con- 
text of his sermon. 

Betty arrived in Amherst in time for supper 
so I missed the reception at "Proxy's" house. Of 
course the usual "cap and gown" photographs 
had to be taken for the Memory book, Hope 
Chest or what have you, but because of the 
way the breeze affected my robe I'll bet when 
she gets those pictures I'll look like a disappointed 
observation balloon. Oh well! 

Monday, June 14 — 

Class Day! Rain! 

The moment has finally come — and gone; 
already a memory! I heard the mantle oration 
delivered by President Dave Rossiter, who pre- 
sented the mantle to Herbert E. Brown of Ash- 
land, President of the junior class. I heard 




[328] 



1937 Sammeftcement 



DIARY OF THE SIXTY-SEVENTH COMMENCEMENT 

(Conchulod) 



Francis Thomas give "A Condemnation of Com- 
muting", and "Chick" Cutter talk about the 
"brethren of the warpath" and the "pink-cheeked, 
starry-eyed maidens" in his Hatchet Oration. 
Ken Ross told of the decline of class rivalry 
in the past years in his Pipe Oration. Also 
the changes at M. S. C. in the past four years 
as revievi^ed by Walt Guralnick in the Campus 
Oration, the Class Ode by Lucille Monroe, and 
the Ivy Oration by Ruth Todt, were presented 
before the class. But I can remember nothing 
of these (due perhaps to a sort of lethargj' that 
occupied my mind) save this from the Ode: 
"This youth, when years have made them wise; 
This eagerness for life within their eyes — 
May nothing earthly bring that to defeat." 

These speeches aren't for us — but for posterity 

This afternoon, the close of the final ceremony 
of Commencement left me perplexed. 

Baccalauraus Scientiae! What does it mean? 
What have I learned? I have learned to live, 
because I now can recognize my weaknesses and 
adjust myself to society. Not that I know more 
than those without a college degree, but rather 
that I know more of myself in relation to the 



external world than I would have, had I not 
chosen higher education. And more directly 
associated with the degree: a set of tools which 
I can handle with skill and with which I shall 
carve and fashion a livelihood. 

And now we take our leave. The Chapel Bell 
will toll the hours — hours when we are not 
here; the hills of Daniel Chester French will 
still fade in the winter only to burst forth with 
triumph in the spring. But now Dame Future 
takes us by the hand; sorceress, enchantress, she 
tantalizes us with her wand, Indeterminacy. And 
for our years with Alma Mater we pause to 
shed a tear, to clasp a hand, to sing a song, to 
look within ourselves and count the jewels she 
has given us, which grow brighter as the years 
slip away — even as the golden tones from the 
Chapel bells. 

I can only find true expression of my feel- 
ings at leaving State in Waller's poem "Of the 
Last "Verses in the Book": 
"Stronger by weakness, wiser men become. 
As they draw near to their eternal home. 
Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view, 
That stand upon the threshold of the new."
