ITHIN the past two years a large proportion of" our men students have 
gone to war. So also have great numbers of the M.S.C. alumni, many of 
whom we remember well as students and friends on this campus. Now they 
are fighting men, at their posts in all parts of the world. Some have been 
decorated for heroism beyond the call of duty. Some have given their lives. 
We are sadly aware that in coming months, or years, there will be more — 
perhaps many more. 

We have a special right to be proud of these men of M.S.C. — 

of their character, their service, the record they have made.

Yes, our faithful faculty has had 
double trouble this year in complying 
with the army program of instruction in 
addition to teaching our diminished 
student body. Whether or not engaged 
in actively teaching aviation students, all 
the faculty has shown enthusiasm and 
pride in doing its best to aid the war 
effort. Many have been burdened with 
increased hours of classes, inadequate 
classroom and laboratory facilities, and 
the strangeness of the courses they were 
assigned to present in routine army 
fashion. Indeed, there are many instances 
in which instructors have adjusted them- 
selves and their modes of teaching to 
fields of study far removed from their 
realm. Unusual arrangements have be- 
come usual and common as language pro- 
fessors instruct in ])hysics, psychologists 
explain math, and "land-arch" professors 
teach geography. 

The success of our double-trouble pro- 
fessors is measured by the number of men 
who have profited by their instruction to 
the extent of obtaining their goal in avia- 
tion. This success in turn is indicative of 
the eagerness and conscientiousness with 
which our faculty accepted this strenuous 
program of adjustment and hard work. 

All is not work, however, for many 
have found in the new adventure, oppor- 
tunities for using creative ingenuity. One 
physics professor found it cumbersome to 
carry storage batteries from one end of 
campus to the other as his schedule led 
him from Physics 25 lecture to the air- 
student labs. As a time and trouble saver, 
he devised a rear compartment on his 
bicycle to hold the cells. Many such 



contraptions have resulted for expediting 
the profs' daily work. 

It has seemed strange to professors 
during the past few months to have rows 
of khaki-clad men before them in the 
classroom in place of the civilian men and 
women of a year ago. But their presence 
was in keeping with the many changes 
wrought on our campus by the war. Soon, 
the air students grew to be an integral 
part of our campus life, showing interest 
and willingness to cooperate with students. 

Because the air students realize the 
great job ahead of them, they accept 
their work and assignments seriously, 
and are in most cases a credit to their 
instructors. In turn, the instructors find 
pleasure in teaching men who are so 
interested and at times really humorous. 

In a certain professor's class one 
morning, there was a very sleepy soldier. 
Bill. Bill had studied the material for the 
day and knew every rule and formula 
verbatum, but was so tired, he just 
couldn't stay awake in class. His buddy 
tried to keep him from dozing, but found 
it hopeless. Suddenly the professor called 
on Bill to state the rule under discussion. 
In his sleep but in a clear tone, Bill quoted 
the rule, verbatum, to the astonishment 
of the entire class. The professor let him 
sleep. 

As air students march out, and coeds 
saunter in to take their places, the pro- 
fessor demasks his scientific being in 
preparation for a forty-minute English 
lecture. Such inner transfigurations occur 
many times throughout each day as our 
wartime professor gives his "all" for the 
education of students.

Old Chapel, the vivid symbol of our college and 
number one memory of Massachusetts State Col- 
lege's men and women, holds, as do the following 
few pages, many of the treasured remembrances 
of the khaki-clad cadets of the 58th College Train- 
ing Detachment as well as of the graduating Class 
of 1944, underclassmen, and faculty members. 



estate, Attfuf. SttfU. 

Here they come gals! Tromp, tromp — 
"Peek a boo! Is there a Sarge in there?" 
"Nope!" "Well, guess we'll have — a 
soda ! — a frappe ! — a dish of ice-cream ! — " 
"Yea, me too! — " "I was here first! — " 
"Hey sis — I'd like — " "Hey, Blondie, 
remember me? I like lots of ice-cream — " 
So it goes. They beg. They yell. One easy 
lesson in how to go definitely balmy. 

Once upon a time, long, long ago, there 
were just civilians on the campus. Then 
came war, then came the 58th, the 
hungriest bunch of fellas in the world. 
They eat ice-cream at 11:30, lunch at 
12:00, ice-cream at 12:30— they eat all 
the time ! 

During World War I 'twas said the 
boys used to shoot crap. Now they flip 
coins (in public — don't know what goes 
on behind closed doors). Winner gets 
double of everything gooey while looser 
digs down for that last two bits. 

Joe College is no more — now A/S Doe. 
There are types of cadets: the wolf type, 
the were-wolf type, the shy type (only one 
or two of these), and the definitely slap- 
happy type. The wolf is known by his 
pepsodent smile and come hither looks 
(one eye on the coed and one eye out for 
the Sarge with the gig sheet). The were- 
wolf — he's the one who howls at the sight 
of any female, 8' x 2' or 5 x 5. (He's been 
away from civilization for some time — 
anything looks good to him !) And the shy 
type — he's the one who says, "Oh, I'm 
not fussy. Give me anything." Then he 
seats himself and never looks at the girls. 
(Low blood pressure, cause.) As for the 
"slaphappy" A/S; oh! he's just the regu- 
lar guy. He comes in big as life — thinks 
he's in the Ritz bar room — says, "I'll 
have a small beer and a shot of rye." He 
gets a short coke with a stick of lemon — 
and he's satisfied. 

There are cadets from the north and 
cadets from the south. The only way you 



can tell them apart is to try short-chang- 
ing one. If he yells — "Hey, sis, my Uncle 
Sammy only gives me 7c per hour," he's 
a northern man. If he says, "Ma'm, I'm 
just a pore boy working ma' way through 
the Air Corps," he's from .south of the 
Mason-Dixon line. 

There are cadets who will take you 
into their confidence and tell you that 
girls mean nothing to them, 'specially 
these coeds, for "Well, you see, there's 
a certain gal back home." But don't be 
surprised if you see one of these "Don't 
sit under the apple-tree'ers, " with a win- 
some coed. Cest la guerre] — you know. 

Really though, they're a fine bunch of 
fellows. They lent pep to our old campus 
and taught us much — 'specially army 
tactics and maneuvers. We've learned 
to respect their apparent jollity when we 
realize the hell they are headed for in the 
war areas. We have benefited by their 
coming and hope that they have benefited 
by being here on this "friendly" campus!

The blue beret tenderly hung away, and 
the gold watch carefully placed on the 
table, Dr. Fraker is ready to begin Span- 
ish class. The assignment was "Oh, trans- 
late the next ten pages, " but what with 
one thing and another, class discussion is 
never where Dr. Fraker suspects the next 
ten pages are. 

Translation starts, and Miss Jones 
mispronounces a sentence starting "Un 
hombre con un paraguas." After correct- 
ing the clumsy-tongued coed, Dr. Fraker 
observes that the umbrella'd man is one 
with something for the rain — para from 
the Latin "for the purpose of" and aguas 
from the Latin "water," and thus 
"rain." Logical? And thoughts of ten 
pages to be translated drift merrily to the 
four winds — "four" from the German 



10 



"vier." And it so happens that the um- 
brella and the man were walking as far 
as Norzagaray Street, where he was going 
to catch a bus — or — well, something 
vehicular. Now, any queer name like 
Norzagaray undoubtedly belongs to the 
Basque tongue. The Basques come from a 
high country in the Pyrenees; they have 
never been conquered; their language is 
the most difScult in the world. Unamuno, 
the brilliant philosopher, is a Basque. 
And there is a dose of geography, mil- 
itary strategy and biography, courtesy of 
Dr. Fraker. Then, too, our hero, besides 
protecting himself from the rain, had 
another purpose in mind. He was going to 
Colorado. Introducing American History. 
Dr. Fraker was born in Colorado, which, 
until 1919, was Indian Territory. The 
people planted crops and herded cows, 
and, when the men were away, the women 
fought the Indians alone. This is the be- 
ginning of an American Saga. Spanish 
becomes, not a jumble of verbs and rules 
for using the subjunctive, but a living, 
working language. 

Often, under the stress, the professorial 
pencil breaks and, very seriously. Dr. 
Fraker produces a pen-knife and very 
seriously whittles his pencil into a sym- 
metrical pin-point. At which point, a 
bell rings and Dr. Fraker collects his 
watch and beret. Spanish class is over.

Once upon a time when butter was 
plentiful, nylons purchasable, and MEN 
on the campus, the student body was too 
large for the auditorium. To the indigna- 
tion of the upperclasses, it was, therefore, 
decreed that the juniors and seniors should 
attend convocation during alternate sem- 
esters. Those were the days! Awed fresh- 
men used to stand at respectful attention 
while the senior class strutted out, to 
the strains of the "Alma Mater." And 



when the turn of the juniors came, they 

usurped regretfully-surrendered seats of 

giggling sessions and self-importance. 

It is not now as it has been of yore. 

The student body has adjusted itself to 

the auditorium. Juniors and seniors, in 

merry company, knit and write letters at 

the same convocation. A junior can no 

longer occupy the seat of her senior friend 

who has an aversion to military speakers 

or has run out of stationery. Outnumbered 

and robbed of their masculine poise, the 

upper classes tiptoe to their conspicuous 

position under the watchful eyes of the 

monitor and the platform, and sneak out 

between the self-possessed glares of 

freshman womanhood. „

An in-a-word description of Doric 
Joseph Alviani, Ed.M., is "enthusiasm." 
Descriptive as the term may be, it is 
nonetheless an understatement. Doric's 
vitality, pep and "go" have put the snap 
into many a campus frolic. Just like one 
of the gang, he is always ready for fun, 
and his grand sense of humor and hearty 
laughter make him welcome everywhere. 
A broad grin, a whiffle, and, come zero 
zephyrs, an extraordinary fur coat are his 
trademarks. 

Happy-go-lucky as he may seem, Doric 
is not just a rah-rah boy; those who have 
seen him work have been conscious of a 
strong current of seriousness beneath the 
carefree exterior, and of his understand- 
ing, sincere love for music. Never is this 
feeling more evident than when he raises 
his fine baritone voice in song or plays so 
expressively on the organ or piano. He 
does not completely betray his appear- 
ance, however, for he can tickle a mean 
ivory in a hot bit of boogie-woogie. 

With all these accomplishments comes 
one inevitable question — "Temperamen- 
tal?" Well, that's hard to say. After the 



11 



way he vanished without awaiting his 
present after the first operetta we won- 
dered — and so did the audience — but 
Doric's seeming patience at rehearsals is 
really a study in self-control — maybe he 
uses yogi. Speaking of rehearsals, there is 
Doric's habitual "relaxing." Many a coed 
has wondered audibly why he bothered 
to get all dressed up anyway. Almost 
invariably Doric arrives at rehearsals 
with jacket, sweater, shirt and tie. Right 
at the beginning, he lays aside his jacket, 
preparing for action, then at intervals in 
the succeeding ten minutes, he rolls up 
his shirtsleeves, loosens his tie, opens his 
shirt collar, takes off his sweater and 
removes his tie in approximately that 
order, meanwhile stretching his sweater — 
while he retains it — nearly down to his 
knees. 

It is almost impossible to picture Doric 
as a member of the faculty. One of the 
first profs incoming freshmen meet, he 
has been taken frequently for a senior, 
so lacking is all pomp and most dignity. 
Informal, friendly, "collegiate," admired 
and liked for the verve and spirit he 
brings to campus doings, he commands, 
nevertheless, as much respect as docs the 
most austere professor. 

To put it briefly — a really swell guy, 
that's Doric.

"Where are you going .^ " 

"To the infirmary, to have my throat 
sprayed. Haven't you been yet?" 

The flu epidemic on campus seemed to 
be reaching alarming dimensions. Rumors 
of a-patient-every-other-minute records 
were being spread and made to appear 
plausible by the migrations headed away 
from classroom buildings toward the 
ex-Phi-Sig house, now the Student In- 
firmary, since the Army took over the 
original di-spensary of bandages and cold- 



pills. Late one night, a merry group of 
freshman girls skipped and giggled down 
Fraternity Row. Asked where they were 
going, they replied in chorus with the old 
refrain: "To the infirmary." 

Soon, every healthy person left on 
campus hesitated to confess to his ab- 
normal condition. The feeling seemed to 
prevail that, if one did not manifest one's 
school spirit by sharing the common 
torture of having his throat painted, one 
might at least co-operate to the extent of 
sniffing and coughing a bit. Other means 
had failed to get the Christmas vacation 
extended. Surely the Board of Health 
could be convinced, by mass action, that 
an epidemic student body should not be 
subjected to contaminated last-minute 
hour examinations. 

"Did you hear that we are going to be 
dismissed at Convo?" 

"Not until then? I thought we weren't 
going to be here after Wednesday noon." 

At any rate, rumors, as usual optimis- 
tic, soon made rosy results out of the 
yearning snifl's of coeds. There was even 
supposed to have been a faculty meeting 
called on the subject. A specific professor 
was praised for having advocated the 
cause of the long vacation. 

But Wednesday came and went, and 
nothing happened. Thursday arrived, 
and students sneezed and yawned through 
Convo; still the administration was silent 
and unmoved. There were reports that 
the infirmary was not quite so crowded on 
Friday morning. The pilgrimage had been 
unsuccessful; and the frustrated pilgrims, 
equipped with coughdrops and red noses, 
were homeward bound.

jbocto^ Q. 



Have you seen the little man with 
the large straw hat digging up the Butter- 
field Terrace Victory gardens? Armed 
with felt cap and rake, he labors among 



12 



the fall leaves. At 7:58, he whizzes down 
Fraternity Row and pedals up the Old 
Chapel hill just as coeds break into a run 
for their eight o'clock class. (It's his gear 
shifts that get him there.) 

He is present among innocent gather- 
ings of students everywhere. Bull sessions 
inevitably turn from the last U.S.O. dance 
to a baffling discussion buzzing with 
" f utilitarian irony," and "religious hu- 
manism" (not to be confused with 
"moral humanism"), "natural super- 
naturalism," and the "twofold law of 
righteousness." The outsider is left some- 
what in the dark; but when he hears the 
Renaissance discussed in terms of "per- 
vasive dualism" and "master dilemma," 
he knows he is dealing with a student of 
Dr. Goldberg. 

"So what's" and curlecues which, upon 
deciphering, turn out to be question 
marks printed across a freshman's scru- 
pulously composed argumentative theme, 
are another clue to identification of this 
remarkable professor. 

"Which comes first, the chicken or 
the egg?" is the Doctor's paraphrase of 
the more usual comment, "illogical se- 
quence." Is it surprising that Dr. Gold- 
berg's marginal remarks rate high in the 
appreciation of his students? Recently, a 
freshman even received personal advice 
on a margin, after having emphatically 
explained the purely Platonic nature of 
his interest in a girl. Quoth the wise 
counsellor, "Watch out!" 

In class. Dr. Goldberg is famous for 
austerity, but strangely so ; for Li'l Abner 
often makes an appearance in his literary 
discussion; and he dramatizes effectively 
the spitting schoolmaster from J. A. 
Rice's / Cavie Out of the Eighteenth Cen- 
tury. For many, the onion will long 
impersonate Beowulf. And, as we peel 
tearfully, Dr. Goldberg's analogy of the 
"accretive layers" in Beowulf's character 
will be painfully evident at the disclosure 
of each additional layer. 



When Dr. Goldberg reverts to serious- 
ness, all sorts of things may happen. 
Once, when he had just expounded the 
difference between "moral" and "re- 
ligious humanism," — at that crucial 
moment — a string of pearls broke. 
"There," remarked Dr. Goldberg with 
gratification, "you see how emphatically 
I stated that?" 

As a matter of fact. Doctor G. is usually 
emphatic, except in asserting his privilege 
of closing the period, which the class 
grants him with exceptional generosity. 
There is an alarm clock on his table; but, 
much to the secret disappointment of 
students, it does not "go off" with a loud 
clamor, for it is not set. Invariably, 
therefore. Dr. Goldberg carries his in- 
spiring enthusiasm to a rapt audience 
several minutes beyond the end of the 
period. His are some of the very few 
students who do not object to running to 
their next class, in exchange for a closing 
remark on the "compleat gentleman" 
or on Daisy Mae. 

"Skip" 

If the scurrying figure of a small- 
statured man is sighted in the Mathemat- 
ics Building, it is undoubtedly Professor 
Moore — better known to the students as 
"Dinty". Besides being head of the 
mathematics department, he is also the 
motivating force behind the Mathe- 
matics Club. 

To those who lack the opportunity of 
becoming acquainted with Dinty, he may 
at first appear to be gruff and abrupt. 
However, those who are acquainted with 
him realize and enjoy the real Dinty, for 
under his seeming harshness is as friendly 
and sympathetic a professor as can be 
found on campus. Perhaps it is through 
his apparent brusqueness that he com- 
mands the attention, awe, and respect 
of so many students, particularly the 



13 



traditionally timid, fearful freshmen. 

A favorite tradition handed down from 
class to class and associated with Profes- 
sor Moore is that of his two definitions of 
infinity. Selecting a lengthy piece of 
chalk, he proceeds to the last blackboard 
in the far corner of the room, draws a 
continuous line from blackboard to black- 
board until he has exhausted all the avail- 
able board space in the classroom and 
approached a window, opens the window 
and casts the chalk out into space — and 
there, students, is his first definition of 
infinity. His second is similar to the first. 
As before, he continues the line until all 
the board space has been used, but now 
he approaches the door. The chalk — and 
Professor Moore — leave the room, and 
are seen no more during that hour. Such 
are the legends of Dinty — and infinity ! 

A habit for which Professor Moore is 
also noted pertains to the cleanliness of 
his boards. This he accomplishes by 
clutching an eraser in his left hand while 
writing with his right. The eraser chases 
the chalk at a fairly constant distance of 
about two words. In accordance with the 
Lamarckian theory students in his classes 
have developed remarkably keen and 
quick eyesight, as attempts to see the 
writing interposed between chalk and 
eraser, and screened by Dinty 's body have 
provided effective exercise for the visual 
nerves. 

A brilliant man, Dinty often fails to 
comprehend the difficulties that many 
encounter in mathematics. He expects 
the student to have a thorough under- 
standing of the subject before taking the 
course. Unfortunately, the average stu- 
dent cannot measure up to his standards. 
However, all enjoy his eccentricities and, 
congratulating him on his twenty-fifth 
anniversary, wish him twenty-five more 
years of teaching here.

1944 is the Index's anniversary too — the 
seventy-fifth.

Doctor Torrey refers to him as "Red 
O'Donnell who never said much but had a 
good head " in Botany. Those who do not 
know him often mistake him for a stu- 
dent. Those who say they know him often 
mistake him. As he walks the campus 
with a dreamy smile, eyes on the ground, 
or with an intense stare, many have 
drawn the conclusion that he is not pre- 
occupied with the harmony of cadet 
spirituals. They may call him a dreamer, 
but his is not so flimsy a thing as a reverie. 
When a student brushes by and bids him 
good morning, he looks up "a little bit 
scared" and answers only after bringing 
his mind from Kubla Khan's pleasure 
dome or Plato's Republic. 

When Dr. O'Donnell walks into the 
classroom, a student reports, she feels a 
kindly impulse to take him by the hand 
and say reassuringly, "It's all right — 
come on in. Don't be afraid." What a 
change in him, when once he stands, very 
straight, behind the lecturn. He is seldom 
hilariously funny as his is the subtle 
humor that not all understand, not many 
remember, and few quote. Yet it spices 
his lectures and stimulates alertness. 
Shuffling his notes, he embarks upon his 
perilous method of drawing class argu- 
ment — or, rather, of provoking it. This he 
often attempts by taking a stand contrary 
to his own opinion. In one such instance, 
he found the class unanimously agreeing 
with the argument which he wanted them 
to refute. He was faced with the problem 
whether to leave them in ignorance or, 
for their enlightenment, to expose his 
deception. He redeemed himself by con- 
fession. 

One may well suspect, too, a transfer 
of this reliance upon the effectiveness of 
opposition to his treatment of grammar. 
Does he concentrate on this delight to 
freshmen so conscientiously so as to stim- 
ulate a craving for literature.^ Such seems 



14 



to be the result among his students. 
Only his own classroom students know 
Dr. O'Donnell as an outstanding student 
of such men as Voltaire, Carlyle, and 
Plato, but the nickname "O.D." is con- 
tinuously acquiring a more familiar, ap- 
preciative ring among under-graduates, 
who keep an eye of friendly interest on 
his actions.

While performing the more menial

juggling from the dummy, in the far

room, the editor is often aware of the 
radio serial taking place in Room 20. 
Shades of "Ma Peters" or "John's Third

A young faculty assistant begs Prof. 
Dickinson for counsel. Should he become 
a deck officer, or wait to be drafted? 
Should he leave his wife and infant for 
a better-paying job, or should he stay 
with them longer, and give them only a 
private's pay later.' 

A coed comes in and babbles of her 
sweetheart. Everyone else has been 
bored stiff at the recital of this super- 
man's qualities and adventures, but Pro- 
fessor Dickinson patiently listens while 
packing film. 

A faculty member lately come to these 
shores rushes in to ask which word of 
three he should use in his lecture. Pro- 
fessor Dickinson advises. 

The Glee Club's trip to New York is

"^OC'' llo4A, 

If he were not such a self-contained 
individual. Doctor William Ross would 
be one of the most harried professors on 
campus today. For "Doc" is handsome, 
young, athletic, and a bachelor — in a 
college which is now predominantly fem- 
inine. Perhaps he does find relief from the 
demure glances and the genteel "wolfing " 
of some of his students in teaching the 
cadets. The army is primarily interested 
in his subject, physics, not in him ! 

Independent as a sophomore believes 
himself to be, "Doc" doesn't care for 
others' opinions, but does as he wishes. 
On the other hand, his humor, though 
effective and tinted with sarcasm, is 
never personal. 

A pendulum, a gyroscope, or a cylinder 
is "Little Bessie" to "Doc, " for he seems 
genuinely fond of the apparatus he uses 
for his lectures. At times he varies the 
nomenclature — and then the instrument 
is "Esmerelda." 

Besides being one of the best-liked and 
most efficient professors on the campus, 
"Doc" is always vividly in the memories 
of his students — "Doc" Ross standing 
on his head to discourage a soporific 
atmosphere in class, and incidentally 
illustrating a law of physics; or "Doc" 
Ross casually munching an apple while 
presenting his lecture !

For ages men have sworn that the female mind does not move in a straight hne. To 
reassure any male readers who are beginning to doubt that masculine theory, the Index 
submits this almost purely connotative table of contents. Literal-minded readers hunting for 
any specific article are advised to look for it in the appropriate section among the following : 
Recognition, Memories, Superiors, Government, Mental, Spiritual, Physical, Homes,

Deans Machmer, Lanphear, and Skinner, 
"superiors" of the State College student body 
. . . Besides these directors with direct student 
relationships, the President, the trustees, and the 
administrative officers also control activities of 
M.S.C.'s coeds and few men. Then, too, it is the 
faculty who determine, through length of assign- 
ments, the amount of student sleep. 



^Uai Be" 



The board of trustees, legislative body 
of Massachusetts State College with two 
stated meetings a year, is composed of the 
governor of the Commonwealth, the com- 
missioner of education, the commissioner 
of agriculture, and the president of the 
college, all serving ex-ofBciis; and not 
more than fourteen appointive members. 

The governor, with the advice and 
consent of the council, appoints new 
members for a seven-year term of office. 
Although personal expenses are paid, the 
appointive members receive no compen- 
sation. 

Most important among the duties and 
responsibilities of the trustees are the 
following: management and upkeep of all 
property belonging to the Commonwealth 




and occupied or used by the college; 
determination and regulation of instruc- 
tion in the college; election of the presi- 
dent, professors, tutors, and instructors 
and determination of their salaries, duties, 
and tenure of office; maintenance of the 
College Farm and provisions for its use by 
students; maintenance of experiment 
stations for practical demonstrations in 
gardening, planting, and growing.

It is fitting that the 1944 Index is 
dedicated to Massachusetts State College 
in the Armed services. The College is 
proud that through its sons and daughters 
it can share directly in the war for human 
freedom, and is backing them and the 
war effort in a series of war programs. 
The College is training Army Air Force 
cadets; our teachers go out to other 
communities to train industrial workers; 
the Extension Service has taken leader- 
ship in Massachusetts food-production 
and preservation; teachers and adminis- 
trators are working the year through on 
the aviation teaching program and in 
the summer session. The College produc- 
tion departments — orchards, poultry 
plant, et cetera — have expanded to 
reduce our food purchases. New courses 
have been added, war-important research 
studies made, and short training courses 
for new farm workers provided. The 
College is glad to serve actively, and 
shall find new ways to do so. 

Another marked change has come to us. 
For the first time women students out- 
number the civilian men — 533 to 147. 
We welcome them, as it is increasingly 
apparent that women must play an im- 
portant part in America's war eflfort and 
in the peace and rehabilitation to follow. 
I know that our women students join 
with me in pledging to Alumni and stu- 
dents in the Armed Forces our determin- 
ation to . carry on with the same high 
standards, to be ready for the readjust- 
ments of peacetime, and to keep the 
college high on the Nation's honor roll.

Back of the smooth running of Massa- 
chusetts State College, there is an ad- 
ministrative group who keep it so. This 
is no simple task, especially during these 
war years, which, with the shortages of 
labor and supplies alone, furnish many 
new problems for administrative officers. 
President Hugh P. Baker is the personal 
link between the trustees and the faculty; 
Dean William L. Machmer and Registrar 
Marshall O. Lanphear administer en- 
trance procedure and the curriculum. 
Miss Edna L. Skinner, as Dean of Wom- 
en, is concerned with their problems. And, 
with the 58th C.T.D. here, Professor 
Ralph A. Van Meter was appointed 
Associate Dean in charge of the Army Air 
Force Academic Instruction. 

The College secretary is W'illiam J. 
Burke; while treasurer Robert D. Haw- 
ley, and assistant treasurer John K. 
Broadfoot see that financial ends meet 



each year. Gunnar S. Erick.son, as bus- 
iness officer, buys college supplies in addi- 
tion to other financial responsibilities. 

Guy ^ . Glatfelter is now Acting 
Director of the placement service for 
students, as Mr. Emery E. Grayson is 
in the service. Placement Officer for 
women is Miss Margaret Hamlin. Di- 
recting the Experiment Station and the 
Graduate school, is Fred J. Sievers; Ro- 
land H. Verbeck is Director of Short 
Courses, including Stockbridge School; 
and Willard A. Munson, Director of the 
Extension Service. The organizations 
they control are closely allied with the 
regular college program. 

Basil Wood commands the tacking up 
of little signs in Goodell Libe, and in the 
Alumni Office George E. Emery is the 
medium between the great beyond (the 
Alumni) and the souls here on campus.

Western door of Memorial Building. . .through 
which class officers pass to hold informal meetings 
on the sofas before the student-lounge fireplace. 
Memorial Building still has an air of authority 
about it, for the Army Air Corps officers have tak- 
en over the Senate and W.S.G.A. rooms, and the 
Panhellenic and Inter-Fraternity Councils still 
meet there.

As the men students' government body, 
the Senate, despite war curtailments, 
is very active this year. Since some of 
last year's members were inducted into 
the Army, the organization adopted the 
name Senate Associates to distinguish 
it from the original organization. Some 
of the present members were elected to 
substitute for war-absent members. As 
always, it supervised hazing and stood 
upon its right to take disciplinary meas- 
ures against recalcitrant freshmen with 
the traditional paddle and pond-dunking 
methods. Blushing boys with girls' white 
berets were evidence, also, of the Senate's 
stern justice. 

The main concern of the Senate, how- 
ever, is the welfare of the student body 
and the control of the activities of the 
men students. In this capacity, it set up a 
freshman governing board and organized 
the entire freshman class; as last year, 
members of the Senate facilitated class 
voting by carrying the ballots to the 
dormitories; it appointed the male mem- 
bers of all campus committees such as the 
Community Chest, the War Bond Com- 
mittee, and the Winter Carnival Com- 
mittee; it supported the Winter Carnival 




and the Community Chest financially 
from funds allotted to it as part of the 
student taxes; it organized informal 
dances and supplied the college infirmary 
with magazines. The Senate's major 
objective, this year, is the launching of a 
post-war construction program solidify- 
ing the opinions of students, parents, and 
alumni as to the necessity of constructing 
several new classroom buildings for such 
subjects as physics and home economics 
which at present have classrooms and labs 
scattered among several buildings. 

The members of the Senate, who are 
elected in spring by all male students are, 
for this year, James Coffey '45, President; 
Frank Jost '44, Vice-President; Joseph 
Kunces '45, Secretary; Edward Putala 
'44, Treasurer; Curtis Wilson '44; Paul 
Sussenguth '45; Robert Monroe '44; 
Elmer Clapp '44. 

One of the organizations which the 
Senate governs, but whose members have 
no direct affiliation with it, is the Maroon 
Key. Fifteen freshmen are elected to this 
sophomore honor society shortly before 
the spring Commencement, by the entire 
male student body, and become active 
members as sophomores. 

The function of the society was to act 
as hosts to visiting teams at sport games 
and to visitors at High School Day, and 
is, therefore, together with such activities, 
suspended for the duration of the war. 
The president of the Maroon Key, to 
which societies similar in function exist 
at such colleges as Bates, Middlebury, 
and the University of Connecticut, is 
Alec Campbell, with the Navy V-12 pro- 
gram at Trinity College. 

"Women's Rights" received quite a 
boost this Spring, when women of '45 and 
'46 voted for next year's Senate from a 
slate of all male classmates.

As mediator between the administra- 
tion and tlie coeds, the Women's Student 
Government Association acts as the legis- 
lative and executive organization of wom- 
en undergraduates. It looms behind the 
hazing committee and keeps the white 
berets perched on the freshmen's curls 
until Thanksgiving. It glowers, stop 
watch in hand, at tardy arrivals panting 
toward the signing-in sheet. And it per- 
sists in calling meetings the night before 
hour examinations. 

This year's officers, elected by all 
women students, are: Cynthia Leete, 
President; Helen Beaumont, Vice-Presi- 
dent; Marjorie Cole, Secretary; and Jean 
Burgess, Treasurer. 

This year a record number of women 
students are scattered in the ex-fraternity 
and off-campus houses, which, within the 
jurisdiction of the W.S.G.A., are subject 
to the off -campus council headed by Anne 
Tilton '46, and consisting of the chairmen 
of all off-campus houses. Since the Senate 
is temporarily represented merely by an 
acting senate, the W.S.G.A. is the only 
unchanged student government body at 
the Massachusetts State College.

Isogon is the women students' honor 
society, composed of eleven upperclass 
girls selected on the basis of scholarship, 
personality, extracurricular activities, and 
versatility by the old members. Seven 
juniors are tapped in the spring and four 
seniors at mid-winter commencement 
exercises. 

One of the society's activities consists 
of the yearly publication of Coediqiiette, 
an advisory handbook for freshman girls. 
It represents Kay Tully's '41 humorous 
compilation of campus rules, plus reputed- 
ly useful information on campus clothing, 
and dating techniques, and was this year 
enlarged with Mary K. Ilaughey's war 
supplement, for adjustment to the pres- 
ence of cadets on campus. Isogon mem- 
bers also serve as ushers at graduation 
exercises in spring and provide for junior 
hostesses at the Amherst U.S.O. 

This j'ear's members are Marian Whit- 
comb, President; Laura Williams, Vice- 
President; Lucille Lawrence, Secretary 
and Treasurer; Barbara Bemis, Cynthia 
Leete, Jean Burgess, Mary K. Haughey; 
and new senior members, Shirley Mason, 
Aileen Perkins, Miriam Le May, and 
Margaret Deane.

Behold, they come — the mighty, noble, 
haughty, proud — the seniors. Though 
still the awe of freshmen, the scourge of 
sophs, the aim of juniors, they are now 
more serious. Facing the world with sadly 
depleted numbers, it is their task to carry 
on the traditions and glories of Massa- 
chusetts State College for those who gave 
up their diplomas to join in the fight for 
freedom. This year's officers were: Doug- 
las Hosmer, President; Lee Filios, Vice- 
President; Ruth Symonds, Secretary; 
Irving Nichols, Treasurer; Bob Monroe, 
Sergeant-at-Arms; Bob Stewart, Captain. 

This class is the one with the most 
varied college experience, for it knew 
M.S.C. when there was a 2 to 1 proportion 
of boys to girls on campus, when a certain 
Stockbridge professor named Parry Dodds 
caused many a flutter, when probably 
the most popular English classes given 
were those conducted by Barney "Hu- 
manism" Troy; when freshman boys and 
girls ate in Draper, and the frosh girls 
lived in the Abbey before Butterfield 
House was finished. 





The Class of 1945 has conducted a 
most successful social year under the 
leadership of the following officers: Jim 
Coffey, President; Kay Dellea, Vice- 
President; Allison Moore, Secretary; Joe 
Kunces, Treasurer; Paul Sussenguth, 
Captain; and Walter Goehring, Sergeant- 
at-Arms. Co-operating with class mem- 
bers, they have been influencial in pro- 
moting a part of the social program for 
underclassmen and Aviation Students. 

In providing its share of entertainment 
for the year, the Junior Class sponsored 
and planned the annual Winter Carnival 
program, thinking it fitting that such a 
vivid example of Massachusetts State 
College social life should be maintained as 
a shining tradition for the many students 
of the college now unable to enjoy such 
an event as a campus ball. The Class 
Party was not restricted this year to those 
in the Junior Class; rather, all classes 
were invited to enjoy the informal affair. 
In short, officers of the Class of 1945 have 
strived to keep college traditions and 
customs as unchanged as possible.

Of all classes, sophomores are rumored 
hardest to teach. No wonder! A sopho- 
more looks down with condescending pity 
or paternal interest on the freshman, who, 
filled only with enthusiasm for campus 
life, jitters and giggles around with child- 
like ignorance and eager receptiveness. 
The junior, wasting his life with grinding, 
is an incomprehensible thing, beneath 
contempt. The senior is pitiable, either 
waiting for graduation or sentimentaliz- 
ing on Alma Mater and his waste of her 
generosity. In either case, he misses the 
opportunity which the soph seizes with 
self-assurance and holds with self-satisfied 
equilibrium: the chance for dictatorship. 
His, or rather, hers, is the right of hazing, 
the easiest class schedule and the domin- 
ance of extra-curricular activities. To the 
sophomore belongs the campus. 

Class officers are Donald Smith, Presi- 
dent; Dorothy Johnson, Vice-President; 
Marion McCarthy, Secretary; John Del- 
evoryas. Treasurer; Steve Waldron, Cap- 
tain; and Dick Chin, Sergeant-at-Arms. 



Since the Freshmen were not well 
enough acquainted with the members of 
their class to follow the example of the 
upperclassmen in electing class officers, 
an executive committee was chosen as it 
had been in previous years. This commit- 
tee, consisting of two representatives of 
the men of the Class of '47 and two repre- 
sentatives of their "better halves," as- 
sumed the responsibilities of directing the 
activities of their cla.ssmates throughout 
the academic year. The girls chosen were 
Barbara Hanley and Helene Parker, and 
the members of the "stronger" sex were 
George Little and Stanley Sugarman. 

Later in the year, this number was 
reduced to three when Stanley Sugarman 
joined the Armed F'orces. The three re- 
maining executives carried on, however, 
and led the Freshman class. 

Most noteworthy fact about the class 
was its overwhelming femininity. Butter- 
field couldn't hold the lasses of '47, so the 
smooth corridors of both the Kappa 
Sigma and the Theta Chi houses became 
the haunts of the boisterous overflow.

Rushing, establishment of an all- 
national-sorority campus, and inter- 
sorority spirit have been the outstanding 
topic of Panhellic Council discussions 
this year. As mediation board in sorority 
affairs, the Council's aim is to put into 
practice all laws put forth by National 
Panhellenic Congress. Aileen Perkins, 
president, in cooperation with Peg Deane, 
vice-president, Wilma Winberg, secre- 
tary-treasurer, Kay Dellea, Miriam Le- 
May, Pearl Wolozin, Laura Williams, 
Lucille Chaput, Marilyn Hadley, Jean 
Burgess, Pat Kenyon, and Dot Colburn, 
held long meetings among themselves 
and with members of the administration 
to formulate a plan for rushing to be held 
later than usual in the academic year, 
allowing freshmen and upperclass girls 
to become better acquainted before 
bidding began. They also shortened the 
formal rushing period to two weeks — a 
round-robin tea, three afternoon teas, 
a closed date, and pledging. Members of 
the council met with the freshman girls 
and transfer students to explain fully 
the system's operation. 

Again this year, in December, Pan- 
hellenic Council arranged 
a Patroness Tea to which 
were invited the patron- 
esses, housemothers, and 
presidents of all sororities. 
The affair was held at 
Sigma Kappa as a house- 
warming in observance of 
their first year as an organ- 
ized group on the campus. 

This spring the Council 
sponsored a series of open 
house dances to be held on 
Saturday nights at each of 
the sorority houses proceed- 
ing alphabetically. 




Traditional Intersorority Sing and 
Declamation was held on April 26th in 
Bowker Auditoriiun under the direction 
of Panhellenic Council. Each sorority 
was allowed to render two musical selec- 
tions with from eighteen to twenty-one 
girls participating in the chorus and one 
declamation in the form of various 
literary types suitable for monologue. 
Judges were chosen from the faculty, 
and graded each sorority from a standard 
form in singing and declaiming. 

Because of the absence of active fra- 
ternity chapters on campus this year, a 
group of students representing them met 
and decided that there would be no 
fraternity rushing or pledging of fresh- 
men throughout the year. Frank Jost, 
president-elect of the Interfraternity 
Council for 1943-44, acted as chairman 
of the fraternity representatives. All but 
four of the fraternity houses were rented 
by the college as girls' dorms. Phi Sig 
became M.S.C.'s student infirmary; Alpha 
Sig now bears the sign, "State House"; 
A E Pi is now the Hillel House for State 
of the Pioneer Valley Foundation; 
and Sig Ep was rented as a private 
house. The few remaining 
fraternity men look long- 
ingly as they walk by the 
houses they once strolled 
nonchalantly into, and 
some of the Alpha Gams 
call their Nutting Avenue 
rooming house the "Alpha 
Gam Annex." As Super- 
visor of Fraternity Leases, 
Professor John H. Vondell 
has charge of handling these 
"frarority" houses, which 
is only another proof that 
1944 is a woman's year 
here at M. S. C. 




Checking out reserved books for overnight, 
Goodell Libe's ten o'clock closing .... Noteworthy 
among student aims is that of high scholarship 
and the satisfaction of reaching the dean's list, or 
of being elected to Phi Kappa Phi. Realizing that 
the purpose of a college is education, conscientious 
underclassmen spend hours in study, and respect 
the honorary keys of their teachers.

The Massachusetts State Chapter of 
the Sigma Xi seeks to express the So- 
ciety's motto "Companions in zealous 
research" and maintain the object "To 
encourage original investigation in sci- 
ence pure and applied " by electing qual- 
ified investigators to membership and 
sponsoring meetings for the discussion of 
scientific subjects. During 1943-44, three 
public meetings were arranged ; on Novem- 
ber 30, "The Development and the Use 
of Penicillin in Treatment of Diseases" 
(led by Dr. J. W. Foster, M.S.C. '36); 
on January 26, a joint meeting with the 
Four-College Genetics Group on "Some 
Phases of Plant Genetics"; and on March 
29, an initiation meeting, followed by a 
discussion of "Psychology and Military 
Aviation." 

These are the men and women to whom 
"To test for sulphate add barium nitrate 
and nitric acid to the unknown" and 
"Vitamin C prevents scurvy" and such- 
like bits of information aren't even con- 
sidered knowledge. They are the experts, 
the authorities, on pomology, entomology, 
physics, bacteriology, botany, chemistry, 
agronomy, zoology, geology, food tech- 
nology, poultry, mathematics, etc.

The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi 
was established here when Massachusetts 
State College was Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College — back in 1904, when 
"Aggie" boys courted girls who wore 
rats in their hair, rubbed their noses with 
chamois, and buffed their fingernails. 
The descendants of these possessors of 
"scholarship and character" now "pitch 
woo" with, or are, girls who wear feather 
cuts, plaster on pancake makeup, and 
parade green fingernail lacquer. Scholar- 
ship seems to survive all fashions.

Although there is no chapter of Phi 
Beta Kappa at Massachusetts State Col- 
lege, people on the faculty who hold mem- 
bership in the Society from other chapters, 
long ago began the custom of meeting 
from time to time in informal association. 
The original ideal of the Society, that 
philosophy is the true guide to a well- 
lived life, is still a profoundly appealing 
one; and the attitude it implies naturally 
draws together those who aspire to it and 
share it. The local group includes men of 
widely different interests, but underlying 
them all is the conviction that wisdom is 
more important than knowledge, that 
character is indispensable to the right use 
of the mind, that the man is more im- 
portant than the profession. 

The local Association has endeavored 
in its own programs to extend its knowl- 
edge of the ideas which shape the thought 
of liberally educated people in our time; 
it also participates in the objects of the 
national Society. Locally it has enter- 
tained speakers capable of sound scholarly 
addresses on a variety of subjects con- 
sonant with the range of the members' 
interests: for example. Dr. Ernest F. 
Scott, The Meaning of the "Higher Crit- 
icism" of the Bible; Dr. O. E. Schott's 
Regeneration of Organs: the Action of 
Embryonic Organizers on Adult Tissue- 
Dean Marjorie Hope Nicolson, Science 
and the Literary Imagination; President 
Roswell G. Ham, In Pursriit of John 
Dryden; Dr. Warren K. Green, Modern 
Aids to Air and Sea Navigation. 

As for the national Society, it has 
sought in recent times to encourage its 
ideal in the world of affairs by fighting for 
the cause of liberal education. The local 
association tries to give expression to the 
ideal by electing from the senior class 
each spring, a Phi Beta Kappa scholar. 



whose record expresses the ideal of the 
Society. The scholar is to be one whose 
academic record and attitude toward his 
college experience indicate intellectual 
maturity, an inquiring and reflective turn 
of mind, and a sense of the importance of 
the ideals a man lives by. The Phi Beta 
Kappa scholar for 1943 was Ephraim 
Morton Radner of Springfield. For Phi 
Beta Kappa scholar of 1944, the group 
chose Miss Charlotte Eigner of Swamp- 
scott. 

The following members of the local 
association are connected with the col- 
lege: Dr. Vernon P. Helming, President; 
Mrs. Kenneth L. Bullis, Vice-President; 
Dr. Walter M. Miller, Secretary-Treas- 
urer; Dr. A. B. Beaumont, Dr. G. C. 
Crampton, Lieutenant Charles H. Du- 
Bois,* Mrs. William B. Easton, Jr., Mrs. 
G. E. Eriokson, Dr. Stowell C. Coding, 
Professor Arthur N. Julian, Dean Wil- 
liam L. Machmer, Dr. A. Anderson 
Mackimmie, Dr. Helen S. Mitchell,* 
Professor Frank C. Moore, Dr. William 
H. Ross, Mrs. Frank R. Shaw, Dr. Marion 
Smith, Mr. Basil B. Wood, Dr. Gilbert L. 
Woodside.

"He ventured Far to preserve the Liberties of 
Mankind," is inscribed over the mantel in the 
Memorial Room dedicated to those State College 
men who gave their lives in the last war .... Today, 
with friends, relatives, and sweethearts fighting 
for those same Freedoms, Massachusetts State 
College students turn for spiritual peace to their 
religious clubs even more than usual. 



To create a spirit of un- 
derstanding among students 
of differing religious beliefs, 
the United Religious Coun- 
cil was established. Under 
the direction of Rev. ^^'. 
Burnet Eastou, it consists 
of three representatives 
each from the Hillel Club, 
the Newman Club, and the 
Student Christian Associa- 
tion. 

The Council realizes that 
although there are funda- 
mental differences in con- 
viction among Catholics, 
Jews and Protestants, there 
are also areas in which 
these denominations can all 
work together. It was the United Religious 
Council which instituted the Sunday 
Afternoon Vesper Services, now such an 
integral part of campus life. 

Big event of the U.R.C.'s year was 
an informal tea and discussion led by 
Mr. Lewis Fox of Hartford, on the sub- 
ject, "Living Your Own Religion." The 
Social Hall of Memorial Hall was crowded 
with students, all eager to hear this 
gentle Jewish exponent of the inter-faith 
movement. 

This year's Council consists of Miriam 
LeMay, Dorothy Maraspin and Walter 
Goehring, from the Student Christian 
Association; Shirley Mason, Lucille Cha- 
put and Mary Vachon, from the Newman 
Club; Sylvia Rossman, Charlotte Eigner 
and Irving Saltzman from the Hillel Club.

M. S. C.'s Religious Director 



The Student Christian 
Association replaced the 
Christian Federation of 
Protestant Students a year 
after the coming of Rev. W. 
Burnet Easton in 1941. 
Eager to support nonsec- 
tarian Christianity, the col- 
lege S.C.A. is connected 
with the N.E.S.C. Move- 
ment and the World S. C. 
Federation. All Protestant 
students are associate mem- 
bers, while the work is per- 
formed by the "active" 
members. 

Activities include pub- 
lishing the Handbook and 
the bi-weekly, Sca7i; con- 
ducting Sunday evening services at the 
local Hope Congregational Church; hold- 
ing Friday afternoon worship services and 
freshman discussions; organizing visiting 
committees and groups to go to local 
churches. 

The S.C.A. is directed by the Cabinet 
which meets weekly. This year's cabinet 
members, selected for interest in S.C.A. 
work, ability to lead, and scholastic 
standing, are Dorothy L. Maraspin, 
President '44; Walter Goehring, Vice- 
President '45; Elizabeth Jordan, Secre- 
tary '44; Fred West, Treasurer '45; Ruth 
Steele '46, Miriam Le May '44, Claire 
Healy '46, John Delevoryas '46, Carolyn 
Whitmore '46, Goon Lee (Dick) Chin '46,

Most noteworthy achieve- 
ment of the former Men- 
orah Ckib, the rehgious 
organization for Jewish stu- 
dents at Massachusetts 
State College, since its affil- 
iation to the national Hillel 
Society, is the acquirement, 
last summer, of the Alpha 
Epsilon Pi fraterntiy house 
for the duration. This was 
obtained through the inex- 
haustible energy of Dr. 
Maxwell H. Goldberg, fac- 
ulty advisor of Hillel, and 
of Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg, 
who, as the new Hillel 
director, divides his time 
between Smith and State 
College. As the only religious club on 
campus with its own community center, 
Hillel is now in a position for close co- 
operation with the inter -faith work. This 
year, the Student Christian Association 
holds cabinet meetings at the Hillel house. 

The club's program includes classes 
in elementary Hebrew, taught by Rabbi 
Hertzberg, which are open to all students; 
the weekly publication of the Calendar: 
regular Sunday night meetings with 
speakers and discussion groups; and peri- 
odical Saturday night dances. As the 
Jewish center for military and civilian 
students of Amherst and State, Hillel 
holds Sunday afternoon services. 

This year's officers are; Golda Edin- 
burg. President; Laura Resnick, Vice- 
President; Hyman Hershman, Inter-faith 
Representative; Barbara Brown, Record- 
ing Secretary; Beatrice Shapiro, Corres- 
ponding Secretary.

This year the Newman 
Club celebrates the fif- 
teenth anniversary of its 
founding as a local campus 
organization by joining 
the National Federation of 
Newman Clubs, including 
chapters in colleges all over 
the United States. The aim 
of the club is to bring the 
Catholic students closer to- 
gether and to promote a 
greater understanding of 
their faith. Advised by 
Father Alfred J. Lane, pas- 
tor of St. Brigid's Church, 
its members usually meet 
in Old Chapel on the first 
Wednesday of each month. 
In the year's program were discussions, 
speakers, and communion breakfasts. 
At various meetings. Father John Power, 
popular young curate of Saint Brigid's 
Church, gave lectures on the different 
parts of the Mass and their significance, 
as well as on the vessels and vestments 
used in celebrating the Mass. Outstand- 
ing student-led discussions were held on 
birth control and Protestantism. On 
December fifth, a communion breakfast 
was held in Parish Hall, with Father 
Johnson, of Northampton, as guest of 
honor. Also, the members of the Club are 
helping to collect funds towards purchas- 
ing a new organ for St. Brigid's Church, 
where members have listened to the 
wheezes of the old one for years. 

The officers of the Newman Club for 
this year are: President, Shirley Mason; 
Vice-President, Joseph Kunces; and Sec- 
retary-Treasurer, Mary Vachon.

Methodist students on campus have 
reaUzed in the Wesley Foundation, this 
year, a spirit of comradeship which 
strengthened to a deep interest in, and 
knowledge of, the fundamentals of their 
religion. The club has been especially 
active under the leadership of the follow- 
ing officers: President, Peggy Merritt; 
Secretary, Claire Healy; Devotion Chair- 
man, Martha Harrington; Co-recreation 
Chairmen, Allison Moore and Alma Rowe. 
Director of the club was Rev. Harold H. 
Cramer, pastor of the Methodist Church. 

Deputation teams were delegated to 
speak before student groups on campus 
and in the near vicinity; a discussion 
series, conducted at the home of Profes- 
sor Adrian H. Lindsey, consisting of four 
Lenten Vespers given Sunday afternoons 
followed by a social hour and supper ; and 
regular Sunday evening discussions con- 
ducted throughout the college year. 

Among the featured lectures were: 
"The Future of Christianity in America" 
by Dr. Paul Johnson, Professor of Re- 
ligion at Boston University; "The Future 
of Christianity in Mexico" by Mr. Wes- 
ley Matzigseit, noted Alumni traveller in 
Mexico; "The Future of Christianity in 
the Far East" by Timothy T. Fang Leu, 
a member of the legislative council of 
China; and the "Future of Christianity 
in Rural America" by Professor C. M. 
McConnell, world authority on rural life. 

The Wesley Foundation Club has 
shown quite clearly by its successful and 
enlightening program of the year, that 
students (especially women) are now 
turning to their religious organizations 
more than ever before, during a period of 
crisis. 



As in previous years Episcopalian stu- 
dents on campus were united in the 
Phillips Brooks Club, organized in 1937 
by Rev. George Leslie Cadigan of Grace 
Church and an integral part of campus 
life ever since. Under the guidance of 
faculty adviser Dr. Charles F. Fraker and 
Rev. Charles Lawrence of Grace Church, 
the club held regular monthly meetings 
throughout the year. At these meetings, 
justly-famous student-planned suppers 
preceded talks by well-known speakers. 

The members were fortunate this year 
in being able to hear, among others. Miss 
Eleanor Snyder of Northampton, who 
spoke on women's work in the church; 
Mary Ellen Chase, authoress and instruc- 
tor in English Composition at Smith 
College, who spoke on the Bible; and 
Dr. H. Karl Lutge, instructor in German 
here at State. These informal lectures 
were followed by round-table discussions 
under the direction of Rev. Lawrence 
which were both profitable and enjoyable 
to the students and others who attended. 
These meetings were well-attended and 
drew students of other denominations. 

When Rev. Lawrence entered the 
armed services early in 1944, the guidance 
of the club was taken over by Rev. Jesse 
M. Trotter, an inspiring leader. 

Early in March, the student-planned 
lunches were superceded by more sub- 
stantial suppers which proved extremely 
successful. 

The student directors of the club were 
Dorothy Maraspin, President, and Ethel 
M. Libby, Secretary-Treasurer, who have 
held well-attended Communion services 
in Old Chapel Seminar Room on Thurs- 
days. 







Terpsichorean Interlude a la Drill Hall 
Strenuous programs to keep State students in war- 
time condition have been promoted this year by 
the Physical Education department under the 
supervision of a comparatively new teaching staff. 
In conjunction with these Physical Education 
schedules, student organizations have been spon- 
soring hikes, dances, and interclass sports events.

During wartime in a college where 
women students carry on for Statesmen 
now in the armed services, a women's 
physical-fitness program acquires new 
significance. The Physical Education 
Department has undergone many changes 
with a new head for the department, a 
new instructor, a record-breaking class of 
freshman girls, and a junior-and-senior 
course in physical education. 

Miss Ruth Totman and Miss Winifred 
Schoenleber, the new head of the depart- 
ment and new instructor, respectively, in 
co-operation with Miss Shirley Winsberg 
have revised the physical-fitness program 
introduced last year, to suit prevailing 
circumstances. The requirement of juniors 
and seniors to take physical education is 
in part suspended ; they are not compelled 
to take a winter sport as the Drill Hall 
cannot shelter this year's unusually large 
number of coeds from Amherst's northerly 
breezes. The limited time and space is 
devoted to the freshman and sophomore 
classes. This did not prevent those juniors 
and seniors who so desired from partici- 





a^ <^ 



pating in an indoor sport, but most upper- 
class women prefer to exercise more se- 
dately, by writing letters or knitting. 

Another provision of the fitness pro- 
gram was that one of the three periods a 
week was to be devoted to calisthenics. 
This year, calisthenics is offered at the 
opening of every physical education class. 

Before graduating, each girl must now 
pass a swimming test, consisting of a 
demonstration of ability to swim three 
hundred feet, and to stay afloat for 15 
minutes. There are no longer swimming 
classes during the day, as the Army has 
priority on use of the swimming pool for 
the duration; however, classes are held in 
the evenings, with preference being given 
to those seniors who have not passed their 
swimming test. 

Miss Totman had a hopeful vision. The 
freshman class must take, during one 
season of the year, the course offered in 
modern dancing, to insure, optimistically, 
the continuance of grace and shapeliness 
among State coeds!

The Outing Club has continued to 
function this year even though the ma- 
jority of the members are in the armed 
forces. The girls have carried on a sched- 
ule similar to that of last year, although 
on a much smaller scale due to trans- 
portation difficulties, the accelerated pro- 
gram, and crowded schedules. 

During the fall, several bike trips were 
made through the surrounding towns. On 
a trip to Northfield and Winchester, N. 
H., the members mapped an A.Y.H. ski 
trail to be developed after the war. Two 
weekends were spent climbing Mounts 
Toby and Warner, while plans are being 
laid for a trip to Mount Tom this spring. 

Only winter activities the club par- 
ticipated in, were skating and a little 
Amherst skiing. In co-operation with the 
4-H Club, four successful square dances 
were held. 

Officers are: President, Margie Reed; 
Treasurer, Ginny Tripp; Corresponding 
and Recording Secretaries, Lucie Zwisler 
and "Twink" Bousquet; Publicity Man- 
ager, Bob Young.

The M.S.C. 4-H Club has been just as 
active this war year as ever, for the 
4-H-ers have worked to fulfill their pledge 
of service with "head, heart, hands, and 
health." Refreshments and entertainment 
at monthly meetings gave the many ar- 
dent members on campus an added incen- 
tive for participation. In addition to other 
activities, the club has taken part in radio 
programs. Among these was a New Year's 
broadcast put on entirely by State stu- 
dents with the assistance of Grunow O. 
Oleson, extension editor. 

Until February, the club was under 
the able leadership of Elmer Clapp, 
President; Barbara Bemis, Secretary; 
Betty Mentzer, Treasurer ;Marjorie Reed, 
Entertainment Chairman; and Mary 
Milner, Refreshment Chairman. After 
elections, these officers were relieved by 
an equally efficient executive board con- 
sisting of Mary Milner, President; Jack 
Blalock, Vice-President; Betty Mentzer, 
Secretary; Claire Healy, Treasurer; Pat 
Jennings, Recreation Chairman; Faith 
Clapp, Refreshment Committee Chair- 
man; Emerson Hibbard and Mary Alice 
Cande, Executive Committee.

The Swimming Club of the Women's 
Athletic Association came into being 
when a group of girls organized a swim- 
ming pageant for Mother's Day in 1939. 
Since then its popularity has been contin- 
ually increasing. In 1940-41, the swim- 
ming team, later to expand into a fully- 
organized club, was national champion 
in the Eastern Region National Inter- 
collegiate Telegraphic Meets, against 
some of the country's leading coed and 
women's colleges. 

During the 1941-1942 season, the club 
was newly organized and began to hold 
regular weekly meetings. The training 
program concentrated on two phases, 
formation and speed swimming. That 



year set the precedent for the water ballet 
which has been a popular feature of the 
Freshman Play Day for the last three 
years. Also introduced were an inter- 
sorority tournament and inter-class meets. 
In January, a ballet team of ten girls 
was invited to appear in a New England 
Championship meet at Whitinsville, 
Massachusetts. The ballet proved so 
successful that, at the meet, the team re- 
ceived an invitation to reappear at the 
Junior Nationals in Worcester the same 
month. Complying with the request of 
the campus, the team exhibited their 
famed performance at Winter Carnival 
in M.S.C.'s own Whitcomb Pool. The 
ballerinas swimming were Ruth Howarth

Frances Albrecht, Mary Mann, Barbara 
Cramer, Mildred Eyre, Margaret Deane, 
Mary K. Haughey and Doris Sheldon. 

At its final appearance for the year, on 
Mother's Day, Martha Hall, Margery 
Reed, and Margaret Perkins were added 
to the group. 

Again, that year, the swimming team 
was National champion at the Telegraphic 
Meet, with Skidmore second, and North- 
western University third. Having been 
the winner of the nationals the previous 
j^ear also, they were qualified as Eastern 
Region sponsors. Two new national rec- 
ords were set: the 100-yard free style re- 
lay timed at 52.8 seconds by Dorothy 
Colburn, Martha Hall, Mary K. Haughey 
and Ruth Howarth Baer; and the 75-yard 
relay by Baer, Hall, and Colburn in 44.5 
seconds. Then, after Ruth Howarth Baer 
had won the 100-yard backstroke set in 
1:11.8 and the 100-yard breaststroke in 
1:21.8, the Mass. State girls held four 
national records. 

In 1942-1943 Frances M. Gasson '43 
entered her second year of managing the 
club, feeling fortunate that it was one 
of the few organizations on campus that 
did not sufl^er severely from war eft'ects. 
The water ballet was again staged at 
Freshman Play Day. Inter-house meets 
created a warm enthusiasm and swim- 
ming became foremost among girls' sports 
at M.S.C. 

At the Telegraphic meet in March, 
1943, Skidmore and the University of 
Pennsylvania won first and second places, 
while the team from State College won 
third. Ruth Baer broke her own record by 
swimming the 100-yard breaststroke in 
1:19.4. 

This year, with Carolyn Whitmore '46 
as manager, the Club, under the name, 




"The Naiads," had as its aim the im- 
provement of strokes, formation swim- 
ming, and speed. Again, it presented the 
Play Day pageant. At the weekly meet- 
ings, games were played for practice and 
entertainment. An interclass meet was 
held, at which Barbara Cole was manager 
of the freshmen, Ethel Libby of the sopho- 
mores, Marjorie Huff and Barbara Burke 
of juniors and seniors combined. The 
meet, from which the junior-senior group 
emerged as champions, consisted of the 
following: 25-yard crawl, 25-yard back 
crawl, 50-yard back crawl, 100-yard comic 
relay, 100-yard free style, 25-yard breast- 
stroke, 75-yard medley relay, and diving. 

This year the girls plan to keep up the 
reputation won by the Men's Swimming 
Team of M.S.C. in the past, as well as 
their own. 

Now, as to whether the gentle art of 
navigating the human body through 
chlorine-colored H2O is conducive to 
streamlining said cellular structure so as 
to present a pleasing appearance, or not, 
may be deduced from a mere glance at 
the accompanying photographic evidence 
which is here exhibited as scientific proof 
of this commonly-held hypothesis.

A year has passed since the campus 
reverberated with cheers of sports' fans. 
Football games are only memories of 
sunny fall days and maroon sweatshirts 
of football players. Now M.S.C remem- 
bers plodding through snowdrifts to wit- 
ness basketball games in the cage, and 
reading of the victories of M.S.C. 's track 
and swimming teams. 

Absence of varsity teams does not mean 
that the physical education department 
has stowed away its equipment and 
locked its doors for the duration. On the 
contrary, Curry Hicks, director of the 
department, reports that the building and 
facilities have been in constant use since 
the government sent 750 air cadets here. 
In the Army Air Force physical training 
program, the building is used ten hours 
in an eleven-hour day. In addition, the 
cadets may use it during open-post. 

The remaining hour, between five and 
six is important to M.S.C.'s men, as they 
can then use the building and all the 
equipment. They can also organize teams 
for any sport desired. Freshman boys 
have their required "Physied" course 
then. However, the equipment may be 
used by M.S.C. students any time of 
the day if they wish to hold activities 
outside of the building. Proof that men's 
sports have not been stifled by the Army 
program, is found in the freshman swim- 
ming team which competed with several 
high schools this year, and in the intra- 
mural basketball tournaments. 

The "ole apple" isn't being swatted 
about this year, but the Index presents 
a short resume of the 1943 season, es- 
pecially for M.S.C.'s few men. 

Although formal baseball was impos- 
sible, a small, enthusiastic squad took 
part in a satisfactory informal .schedule. 
The team was handicapped by lack of 



pitchers, only five in the squad, and only 
one with varsity experience. However, 
this was balanced by fair hitting and 
exceptional fielding. Coaching was cap- 
ably undertaken by Coach "Herb" Gill, 
while the manager was Elmer Clapp '44. 
Captain was catcher "Matty" Ryan '43. 

The season's battles included two easy 
victories over the Amherst College Junior 
Varsity at the hands of inexperienced 
pitcher Ray Kneeland '44 and freshman 
Joe Segel. The scores were 6-2, and 9-3. 
The next game was an 8-2 defeat by Fort 
Devens. However, three double plays, 
the three hits of shortstop Dick Maloy 
'43, a miraculous shoestring catch by 
freshman outfielder, Ed McGrath and 
throws to second by catcher Matty Ryan 
were all features of the game. The sea- 
son's successful conclusion was a sensa- 
tional 1-0 upset of Springfield College's 
winning team. The pitching assignment 
was handled by "Ted" Brutcher '44, who 
held the visitors to five hits that day. As 
in other games, superb fielding was re- 
sponsible for the fine showing. 

Because of the informality of the team, 
letters could not be awarded to all who 
would ordinarily be eligible. However, 
letters were awarded to "Les" Rich '43, 
Merwin "Spooks" Magnin '43, and 
Elmer Clapp, manager, on the basis of 
their previous varsity record.

The Homestead, model home .... One of the 
greatest problems presented by our changed 
campus, has been that of housing. Innumerable 
alterations were necessary to change a sufficient 
number of ex-fraternity houses into satisfactory 
girls' dorms. Because of excellent co-operation and 
hard work, they are now functioning efficiently 
under the supervision of Professor Vondell. 



2>o*te ^<Ud Me 



"Housemothers? What are they for? 
To keep us quiet when we want to talk, 
shoo away our men when we want to 
entertain, and make life generally miser- 
able?" 

"Well, maybe so. But that isn't what 
we coeds think this year, and we should 
know. We've had housemothers enough — • 
eighteen of them of all sorts and sizes, 
ranging from ex-students to women who 
have spent years in South America or 
other fascinating places." 

A "frarority" girl speaks: "'What do 
we think of them'? That they're pretty 
swell. 'Why?' Because they've done so 
much for us. They've helped us clean up 
the houses we were to live in, and brought 
their pictures and books and personal 
treasures to brighten up living rooms. 
Exam time came, and with it coffee and 
our favorite kinds of sandwiches to keep 
us awake since we would stay up. And 
later in the year, if we were found up 
studying at three in the morning, were we 
pre-emptorily sent to bed? No, a clucking 




of the tongue, a shake of the head, and the 
housemother faded away into darkness 
to return with a blanket for our feet and a 
box of crackers for our morale." 

A sorority girl speaks: "Our opinion? 
Well, we heartily concur with all that the 
'frarority' girl says. In whom can we 
always confide our daily problems and be 
sure of receiving consolation? Why, the 
housemother. And when 'possessed' by 
the various human ills, ranging from 
a simple headache to the 'clutches' of the 
prevalent grippe, we can always count 
on her to see that we have proper care, 
relieving 'mother' of the worry of her 
'dotter' wasting away to a shadow with 
no one to witness her sad demise. She's 
lots of fun — always good for a 'fourth' at 
bridge and a cup of hot coffee afterwards 
to revive the 'gals' who got 'set' proper. 
She's interested in us — a real friend. Our 
blessings on the housemother!" 

This year's housemothers are: Mrs. 
Gertrude Bedell, Pi Beta Phi; Mrs. 
Henry Broughton, Kappa Sigma; Mrs. 
W. W. Buis, Alpha Gamma Rho; Mrs. 
Abby Jane Campion, Sigma Kappa; 
Mrs. Sara Coolidge, Homestead; Miss 
Doris Drury, Draper; Mrs. L. F. Eaton, 
Q.T.V.; Mrs. Thorkil Fog, Kolony Klub; 
Mrs. Morley S. Linton, Tan Epsilon Phi; 
Mrs. Dorothy Phillips, Theta Chi; Mrs. 
Edith P. Pickell, Chi Omega; Mrs. 
Ernestine Reed, Sigma Alpha Epsilon; 
Mrs. H. Wilson Ross, Kappa Alpha 
Theta; Miss Ethel Rowland, Alpha Tau 
Gamma; Mrs. Ann Runyeon, Kappa 
Lappa Gamma; Miss Lucy Thayer, 
Lambda Chi Alpha; Miss Kathleen 
Tully, Sigma Iota; and Mrs. Bolles 
Whipple, Kenyon L. Butterfield House.

Where once there were heavy dark 
drapes, there are now white curtains with 
gay tiebacks. Where once boys' battered 
bikes httered the lawn and porch, girls' 
bikes lean against the house or stand on 
the sidewalk. Instead of the familiar thud 
of men's feet pouncing across the porch 
there comes the scuffling of women's 
loafers. Instead of "Alpha Gam" broth- 
ers tying ties, struggling into sweaters as 
they scramble for their eight o'clock class- 
es, M.S.C. coeds come sauntering forth. 

The inside of the house, too, has under- 
gone a drastic change. It has been cleaned, 
painted, and repaired for occupancy by 
fifteen upperclass girls. Alpha Gamma 
Rho's first floor is composed of three com- 
fortable living rooms, and the quarters 
of Mrs. Frederick Buis, well-liked house- 
mother of the "frarority." Second and 
third floors are used for studying and 
sleeping. The cellar serves as "rec" room, 
and the kitchen in the cellar affords a 
handy place to keep and prepare food for 
those important midnight snacks. 

Alpha Gamma Rho's notorious "bull" 
sessions have capitulated to the "gab" 
fests of a girl's dormitory. 





Counting the few boys at the Hillel 
House, there are now two male-inhabited 
fraternity houses. 

When North College became the home 
of half a hundred Officer Candidates, 
former M.S.C. mili-majors, in December, 
the male underclassmen moved to the 
Alpha Sigma Phi house. One of the first 
official acts was the changing of the name ; 
a shiny new "State House" sign now 
reposes over the front door. Since then, 
nine of the twenty "State Housemen" 
have gone into the services. 

Except for guests at the gala Christmas 
vie party, the house remained strictly 
a masculine stronghold — with one excep- 
tion — Ruler of the Roost was mascot 
Baroness Heddy, an English Bull. 

Probably banded together for protec- 
tion against the feminine hordes, they 
formed a compact, closely-knit, little 
group which contributed much to campus 
life this year, having two members in the 
Mikado and two on the Winter Carnival 
Committee. Officers elected at the be- 
ginning of the year were Dave Eldridge, 
President; George Little, Vice-President; 
George Fairchild, Secretary; and Bill 
Courchene, Treasurer.

It was "Cherchez la t'emme!" when 
you entered Alpha Tau Gamma this fall, 
for something had been added. Gleaming 
new paint and feminine fripperies had put 
a new face on the former Stockbridge 
fraternity. 

A.T.G. was the center of much excite- 
ment at the time of the robbery (see page 
136) for it was there the thief "lifted" 
$40 from one of the girls. Another "fra- 
ternity" sister saw a face at her window 
that fateful night. 

Seeking refuge from the ordeals of 
student life and the unfeminine parts of 
the house, the seventeen girls frequently 
visited the room of Miss Ethel Rowland, 
the housemother, who listened to all coed 
problems with an understanding mind. 

Decorating the house stairway was 
the skull of a cow with the initials A.T.G. 
written on its forehead — Altogether Too 
Gruesome as far as the inhabitants are 
concerned. Also notorious is the tele- 
phone, which is very public. The sighs 
that accompanied, "Why yes, I'd love 
to!" were much too well-known to the 
sixteen housemates who lived behind the 
surrounding five doors. 



/7. 7. g. 



Stockbridge men, too, have left the 
hallowed halls of their domain — K.K. — 
to the coeds. Dismayed by its rundown 
appearance, some withdrew, but eight 
hardy souls stuck to their paint brushes. 
The girls scrubbed, painted, and var- 
nished. Their charming and co-operative 
housemother, Mrs. Thorkil Fog, lent a 
decorative hand and made new curtains, 
and slip-covers for the living room chairs. 
This room, with its attractive fireplace, 
is now a paragon of comfort and charm 
through everyone's help. 

Until frigid temperatures drove them 
in, the girls slept on the porch. A foraging 
expedition into the attic brought forth 
trophies for decoration. One enterprising 
young lady made use of a "reflector" 
arrow — commonly found in the possession 
of the State Highway Commission. 

Always on hand to help was friendly 
Mrs. Fog, who proved herself a good 
sport and jolly companion as well at 
K. K.'s rollicking Hallowe'en party. At 
the beginning of second semester, a few 
girls from other houses moved in and 
Carolyn Whitmore was chosen house- 
chairman to replace Ruth Howarth Baer 
when she graduated.

Incredible, but true: Kappa Sigma, no- 
torious for its consistent lack, why, re- 
fusal, of men callers, a house of seriously 
minded diamond-wearers and students. 
The one steady guest is Kappa Sigma's 
house brother, who calls not only on his 
"gal" but on the entire 35 girls. 

Peggy Bishop is house chairman over 
thirty-two freshmen and three seniors. 
To help in their house cafeteria, presided 
over by Mrs. Graves, popular cook, the 
girls have established a system of co-oper- 
ative waitress duty. 

In each of the second and third floor 
dorms, the coeds have pushed their 
double-deckers together in sets of three, so 
that five or six girls can occupy one bed. 
During finals week, they slept in shifts 
of half an hour in a rotating manner which 
kept the lights burning and the girls 
grinding all night. Freshman fancies! 

Kappa Sigma has come to recognize 
strange stirrings at dawn, gratefully, as 
Mrs. Broughton thoughtfully rises to 
turn on the heat before sleepy eight 
o'clock fans shiver toward the bath room. 
During Mrs. Broughton's unfortunate 
absence due to ill health, Mrs. Loomis, 
her substitute, won the girls with candy.

Lambda Chi is no exception to pre- 
vailing fraternity invasion, and halls 
once sacred to the male element are being 
called "home" by nearly thirty upper- 
class girls. The rooms have gone through 
a transformation to be expected with the 
advent of the skirted population. In the 
study rooms especially, bright new cur- 
tains have been hung, windows scrubbed, 
and even rugs laid! Pictures of men in 
uniform (not Vic Mature) have taken 
over the Varga Girl's position of honor. 
The success of the change has been due 
in no small part to the housemother, Miss 
Lucy Thayer. 

One thing unchanged, however, is the 
hospitality extended to all. Open house is 
held every evening until eight o'clock for 
the special benefit of State's air students. 
"Vic" parties are on the list to keep up 
the morale of both soldiers and civilians, 
but in these, the famed fraternity vic- 
party "blackouts" will go down under 
the coed thumb, and the multicolored 
bulbs will be tossed in the ash can. 

Lambda Chi is also the weekly ren- 
dezvous of the Quadrangle Club, who 
invite faculty members to their meetings 
to better student-faculty relationships. 




2. v. V. 



At Q.T.V. in September, the ladies 
finally gained entry into the sanctum 
sanctorum of the fraternity brothers. 
Instead of masculine monstrosities, tiny 
feminine feet trod the spacious lawn; and 
magazines had changed from Esquire to 
Vogue — at least according to the evidence 
scattered in the parlor. 

As their predecessors had done, the 
twenty-one girls slept on two levels on the 
third floor amid the groans and squeaks 
of the 40-odd-year old house. Occasionally 
a little excitement was produced. In the 
middle of one night, the girls were awak- 
ened by blood-curdling screams and 
"leaped from their beds" just in time to 
see one of their number take to the stairs 
in record time. They followed, demanding 
to know the cause of the disturbance. 
The nearly hysterical revelation of the 
advent of a bat resulted in a mass exodus 
to the lower regions. 

The coeds living in Q.T.V. were for- 
tunate in having for their housemother 
gracious and lovely Mrs. Eaton, and 
capable Sybil Minkin for house chairman; 
and, more materially, a muralled rec- 
room. 





Upon entering the S.A.E. house with a 
visitor's inquisitive politeness, some of 
the feminine inhabitants will attempt to 
show off the modernly-equipped kitchen 
with the ironing board (object of pil- 
grimage from A.T.G.); the penthouse of 
two proud roommates; the absence of 
double deckers in the dormitory; the 
green light that is kept burning all night 
as in "the third degree torture chamber." 
Stories are prevalent about the nocturnal 
tiptoeings to trace the snorers, who are 
invariably soothed to silence by the floor 
creaking under the snoopers. 

Downstairs, the girls have large study 
rooms, in which three or four roommates 
combine a dozen radio programs, includ- 
ing those from A.T.G. by means of open 
doors and windows. Here, too, they enjoy 
the coziness of having one closet — with a 
tie rack — for four girls. 

Despite this apparent incongruity, the 
S.A.E. feminine inhabitants realize a home 
through the thoughtful guidance and 
attention of their housemother, Mrs. 
Ernestine Reed; and live as happily as 
fifteen girls can.

"Can't we paint it dusky rose? It'd 
look so much more cheerful at 6:30 in 
the morning." — "But maybe the boys 
like it pea green and royal blue." — "Oh, 
gee, Mrs. Linton." — "Well, I'll see what 
I can do." 

So forth goes the emissary, T.E.P.'s 
housemother, to the higher powers, to do 
battle for the decorative taste of her 
brood of coeds. 

They still brush their teeth in a sickly 
green atmosphere each morning, but there 
icere improvements. T.E.P. house had its 
face lifted by application of soap and 
water, new drapes, and a cheerful picture 
here and there. Only one thing was 
lacking. 

Then came Junior and Jimmy and their 
G. I. pals, and life for the T.E.P. girls 
was quite complete (almost too much so 
when an ungallant G.I. started popping 
out from behind sofas to see how the 
Tepites looked on the "morning after" 
New Year's Eve.) It was, however, a 
peaceful life in the main, though second 
floor ablutions embarrassed first floor 
social life and first floor good night hand- 
shakes occasionally awoke third floor 
greasy grinds. For hearty hospitality, may 
it long be remembered that "T.E.P. was 
Hep." 





Theta Chi is in the novel situation of 
being the only fraternity house on campus 
to have an equal number of freshman and 
upperclass women living together. Ob- 
viously, this proved to be a bug in the 
carefully laid rushing plans of the Pan- 
hellenic Council. As a result, it ruled that 
for the duration of rushing, upperclass 
girls living in the house were to have 
nothing to do with the frosh, thus creating 
a difficult situation, easily understood by 
anyone who has attempted to completely 
ignore another person who eats, sleeps, 
and studies under the same roof. 

Mrs. Dorothy Phillips, who was house- 
mother at North College last year, is 
housemother at Theta Chi this year. 
She is well-known for the active and 
sympathetic interest she takes in every 
one of her charges. 

A cafeteria has been opened in Theta 
Chi which feeds forty girls of all four 
classes who live not only in the house, 
but in nearby fraternity houses. Es- 
pecially gleeful are those damsels who 
spent the summer contemplating the joys 
of climbing up Butterfield hill in a Feb- 
ruai-y blizzard for a meal.

Butterfield House is the place from 
which coeds coasted down the hill, last 
year, during the "ice days, " and to which 
mud-caked summer school dungarees 
panted home from after-class work on the 
farm, last summer. The freshman girls' 
dormitory, its situation is particularly 
appropriate. The view from the terrace — 
campus and valley — furnishes material 
for sentimental dissertations on sunsets 
to which only freshman themes can do 
justice in their gushy rapture. With Mrs. 
Whipple's housemotherly help, the girls 
provide for the cadets a cheerful place 
to spend free time. 

Butterfield is the house with corridors 
that are periodically blocked with maple 
furniture and stuffed animals, while half- 
dressed roommates slide over the floor 
within on black-and-blue knees and a 
little wax. Besides being officially fresh- 
man dorm and a dining hall, Butterfield 
is regarded with personal affection as 
the house on the hill, from which troups 
of coeds come singing to Social Union 
programs. Despite its 150-gal capacity, 
Butterfield was able to hold but two- 
thirds of the freshmen.

At five o'clock in the morning, the 
clanging milk cans are the daily seren- 
aders of the fifteen girls living at Draper. 
The discordant clangor presents itself as 
warning to the girls that six o'clock is 
approaching. At this time, the drowsy 
damsels arise to serve the seven hundred 
fifty soldiers of the 58th College Training 
Detachment in Draper Dining Hall. 
Theirs is the responsibility of satisfying 
the gastronomical needs of the cadets. 

In a sense, these girls are regimented, 
as they must not only be students in col- 
lege but must also adjust themselves to 
working a number of hours at each meal. 
The cycle of work, study, sleep is broken 
only by nightly "discussion groups," 
which invariably consider what "that 
cute cadet in Company C" said. Many 
of the girls relinquish their own vacations 
to see that the holiday-less cadets are 
fed; and on Christmas they gladly gave 
up their time to create decorations and 
suitable atmosphere for the soldiers who 
are far from home. 

Co-operation, necessary to systematized 
work, has broken down any barriers which 
might have existed. Hence, the atmos- 
phere is the friendliest on campus.

QoUeae, 



North College, headquarters of the 
"Ec" Department and site of the C- 
Store, used to be a girls' dorm. When the 
Air Corps occupied the dormitories and 
girls took over the fraternity houses, 
MEN invaded North College. 

They were to lead no peaceful life. In 
the middle of the first semester, forty-five 
R.O.T.C. majors returned to campus 
while waiting for places at the Officers' 
Candidate School in Georgia. The girls 
greeted them with enthusiasm, and the 
North College fellows moved to the 
fourth floor. Thence they could be seen 
filing every morning before eight o'clock, 
armed with towel and tooth brush, to 
their basement bath room. Then, too, 
some moved to Alpha Sigma Phi, now 
"State House." 

When the R.O.T.C. left unexpectedly, 
a month after its arrival, the civilians 
moved back to the second floor. Then one 
joined the Naval Air Corps and another 
was stationed with the A-12 program at 
Amherst College. At present, eleven fresh- 
men share the house with two upper class- 
men welcomed back from service — Arnold 
Murray and Stanley Sherman. 

The inhabitants of North College es- 
pecially pride themselves on having been 
the leaders in what they call "the revolt 
against the Senate." During hazing week, 
there was disagreement with the Senate's 
verdict at a freshman trial at which the 
dunking sentence was pronounced. Half 
of the freshmen present at the execution 
were inhabitants of North College and 
took part in turning the tables on the 
sophs. 

For intellectual stimulation. North 
College commonly adjourns to its house 
library, the barber shop. 



Down past the Abbey on North 
Pleasant Street stands a typical old New 
England farmhouse that has been there 
over two hundred years watching Am- 
herst, and particularly Massachusetts 
State College, since its founding. Once, 
this was the college farmhouse, but now 
it is the Homestead, practice house for 
seniors majoring in Home Economics. 

Every six weeks sees about eight 
seniors moving in and out of this pre- 
Revolutionary house. Here the girls learn 
to put into the actual practice of every- 
day living the theory that they have 
gathered in the last three years. The girls 
plan balanced meals and prepare them in 
the scientifically planned kitchen. They 
do the marketing and take complete care 
of the house. Each girl has an opportunity 
to be "homemaker"; that is, to direct 
the group under the able leadership of 
Mrs. Coolidge who presides as house- 
mother and counselor to the girls. 
While they live in the Homestead, the 
Home Ec-ers make interesting studies 
and experiments to test their own effi- 
ciency in meal preparation and time 
planning. Especially stressed is the plan- 
ning of well balanced meals on various 
actual-cost levels. 

But the Homestead is not only a place, 
for seniors. About once a week, early in 
the morning, members of the junior class 
may be seen entering to prepare early 
breakfast for the still slumbering resi- 
dents. Many of the Home Economics 
Club meetings are held in this model home 
atmosphere, and annually the clothing 
classes display their latest creations at a 
tea given here at the center of all the 
Home Ec-er activities.

Dean "Wee Willie" Machmer . . . one of the 
solid, unchanging things the seniors will remember 
about their Alma Mater. Now, instead of the safe, 
dependable routine of classes and labs, C-Store 
coke fests and bull-sessions, the Class of 1944 
faces a weary, war-damaged world in need of 
youthful energy, noble ideals, and high hearts.

The Board of The 1944 Index in a Woman's World wishes to thank the following for their admirable 
spirit of co-operation. 

Professor John H. Vondell contributed the frontispiece, the shot of the Memorial Room fireplace, the 
"State House" and Quadrangle groups, the portrait of Edith Lincoln, and that of Queen Elaine. 

Doctor Theodore C. Caldwell contributed the dedication admirably expressing M.S.C. out-of-the- 
Services' feelings towards M.S.C. in-the-Services. 

George "Red" Emery of the Alumni Office furnished the pictures and information on the Alumnae. 

President Hugh P. Baker sent the Index a message that emphasized M.S.C. 's help in the war effort, and 
seconded the Board's opinion that 1943-44 is a woman's year on campus. 

Doctor Vernon P. Helming of the Division of Liberal Arts wrote on the ideals of the Phi Beta Kappa; 
and Doctor Leon Bradley of the Division of Physical and Biological Sciences on Sigma Chi. 

"Kay" Tully of the College News Service presented the Index with a lovely scene of the Rhododendron 
Garden and the graduation picture. 

Doctor Maxwell H. Goldberg, Index literary advisor, calmed the exuberant enthusiasm of the Editor- 
in-Chief down to a working level, and inspired the Board to strive for accuracy in the interest of future 
historians. 

Professor Lawrence S. Dickinson, financial advisor, not only provided an example of indefatigable 
energy, but figured out proportions for senior informals and was figuratively a handy shoulder for upset 
editors. 

"Hermie" Gottesman contributed the pictures of the Freshman fishing party, the Carolers, and Sigma 
Kappa House. 

"Bettye" Huban volunteered an afternoon's typing; Elmer Clapp wrote of baseball; and "Kits" Thayer 
contributed two articles. 

Other students besides "Ellie" Dudley and Board Members wrote articles for the "Memories" section, 
but as the subjects treated were professors, pseudonyms have been used in the interest of normal faculty- 
student relations. 

Harold Johnson of Andover Press was generous with helpful suggestions, and technical information about 
fitting titles to the pages. 

Margaret Saunders of Greylock Photo-Engraving Company made the question of cuts and such even 
enjoyable. 

Arthur Alvin, South Hadley photographer, took pictures about campus just as directed, and made sure 
M.S.C.'s coeds looked their glamorous best. 




Underclassmen made rapid social adjustments 
to the army-invaded campus. . . .Through the 
efforts of the U.S.O. successful dances have pro- 
moted friendly relationships between underclass 
women and air students. In academic adjustments 
they have gladly given up classrooms and labora- 
tories, and have attended classes at unusual hours 
so that the army program might run smoothly.

Leaving Bowker Auditorium after Glee Club 
rehearsal. . . To compensate for loss of intercol- 
legiate games and other traditions, many students 
participated in extracurricular activities this year. 
They find enjoyment in working for literary pub- 
lications, dramatic and music societies, which are 
Academic Activities and thus profitable in credits 
toward the coveted Academic Activities pins.

Despite many war-time obstacles, the 
Collegian is one tradition that Massa- 
chusetts State College has carried fore- 
ward with little outward sign of change. 
However, the inner workings have gone 
through quite a revolution. Barbara 
Pullan, '45, the second woman ever to 
hold the position of Editor-in-chief, has 
carried her responsibility with an ease 
and enthusiasm worthy of a veteran. 
Editor Pullan was at the disadvantage, 
as was the rest of the weekly's staff, that 
there were few, if any, of the old guard 
left (Pun on national situation possible 
here!), to advise and assist at the crucial 
times. For the first time in the history of 
the College, the Collegian's staff has been 
predominatingly feminine. 

When elections were held early this 
March, students became even more con- 
vinced that this is a woman's world, on 
campus, at least. Editor Pullan was 



chosen to fill, for another year, the post 
that she had so faithfully held this past 
year; Alma Rowe was appointed Asso- 
ciate Editor. Irmarie Scheuneman be- 
came Managing Editor, to be assisted by 
Pauline Lambert. Kay Dellea was re- 
appointed Collegian secretary. For the 
first time in the history of the paper, as 
far as is known, a freshman, Rosemary 
Speer, became News Editor. Lonely 
male, Dick March was re-elected Business 
Manager. 

Keeping in step with the times, a new 
column has appeared on page two of this 
year's Collegian. Not only does State keep 
in touch with her sons in the service by 
sending them the Collegian regularly, but 
she also has Joe Kunces tracking down 
their latest activities, adventures, and 
addresses. Joe also records the visits 
made to the campus by State's warriors.

week? What a howl!" seems to be the 
general comment upon the newest column 
where anything and everything goes . . 
into print. Carol Goodchild and her 
beloved pal, Donkeydust, are co-editors 
of this masterpiece of humor, burlesque 
and satire all rolled into one short weekly 
column. Nothing is too small, too trivial, 
to escape the attention of these writers; 
even the ever-present puddle between 
Draper and Stockbridge has gained fame 
and recognition through them. 

During the first semester, Bob Young's 
column, "Musical Revue," greatly inter- 
ested the music lovers on campus. Here 
could be found news of concerts sched- 
uled for Amherst and surrounding towns. 
Bob kept track of what the critics were 
saying and thinking, and passed this on 
to his fellow students. 

"Quarterly Clippings," now a regular 
weekly feature of the Collegia?! made 
its debut as a result of war-time factors 
making impossible the publication of a 
separate magazine as in former years. 
Instead of discontinuing the literary 
efforts of the campus for the duration, 
the Collegian agreed to cooperate and 
each week on page four is found quite a 
sizeable section devoted to the more 
literary type of writing. 

Believing that we know too little about 
our own professors, there is a new oifering 
in the Collegian called "Faculty." Each 
week, the column's writer does a combin- 
ation character sketch and biography of 
some member of the faculty in an at- 
tempt to make the student more familiar 
with the professors on campus, and know 
them as human beings, not as classroom 
robots that lecture five and a half days 
a week. 

"Co-editing" is still carried on in all 
its pertinence or, as some think, im- 




pertinence. In this column, is a definite 
reflection of co-ed opinion and the frank 
presentation of the feminine point of view. 
Many of the co-ed's problems are dis- 
cussed in this column, and often, it might 
be called "advice to the feminine ele- 
ment." Since Ruth Sperry's retirement, 
great secrecy has been maintained about 
who wields the pen behind this feature. 

With all the current interest in the 
post-war future and what it holds in 
store, the Collegian has a new angle with a 
column called "Yesterdays," recounting 
events in the opposite direction, the past. 
Present-day students are really amazed 
at the long-ago vitality of the little college 
at the northern end of the country town, 
Amherst; and the writer deserves a great 
deal of credit for thumbing through 
archives to dig out this information. 

Despite the difficulties that it faced, 
the Collegian Staff has conscientiously 
written up Massachusetts State College's 
weekly history, as is evidenced by the 
"midnight mazda" burned consistently 
in the basement of Memorial Building. 
Yet, like the Index Board, the Collegian 
Staff gets little recognition for its efforts. 
Salud, amigas!

The 1944 Index Board would have 
been inconceivable before the World War, 
when only a handful of women had 
braved the masculine stares of Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College. In fact, it 
was not until 1940 that the Index had its 
first woman editor, Edith "Micky" 
Clark; and she had only four women on 
her staff, including Lois Doubleday (now 
Mrs. Kuralowicz) and Meg Marsh, who 
were later to be Editor-in-chief and 
Photographic Editor respectively of the 
1942 Index, but Micky's board had 
twenty-one men! Just as the number of 
women in the student body of Massa- 
chusetts State College almost equalled 
that of men just before the War of the 
Four Freedoms began, the Index Board 
was about equally divided then, with 
male ideas still dominant through the 
force of tradition. But when most of 
M.S.C.'s men marched off to military 
action, the Index Board, like Byron, 
woke up to find itself — not famous, but 
feminine. It also discovered that its 
campus world had become strikingly 
feminine, had shaken oft' some of the 
shackles of shan'ts long established by a 
masculine student body, and that the 




5=^^= 



yearbook had a chance to mirror this 
historically interesting change of sex. 

As planned and directed by Editor-in- 
chief Annette (Twink) Bousquet, the 
1944 Index was written from the wom- 
an's angle. In the Literary realm, ruled 
by Ruth Murray, there was a Mementoes 
section of memories women would like 
to redream in future years, a page of 
nostalgic, and still, a page of flip- 
pant remembrance; articles of women's 
interest such as those on the swimming 
club, girl's gym, housemothers; and other 
articles — summer session, frosh hazing, 
and alumni — slanted to the coed's view- 
point. In the Statistics department, 
headed by hard-working Sally Boyden, 
the personal touches beloved of women — 
nicknames and descriptive phrases — 
made their appearance; and dry statis- 
tics (darling of the male) were eliminated 
as far as possible. As for illustrations, 
newcomer Connie Dorgan's pen was 
lightly satiric — and altogether feminine. 
In her drawings the same tender or teas- 
ing humor which peeked from headlines 
and "boo!"ed from articles made itself 
very clearly visible. 

Beulahmae Kolb, dynamic, blond Busi- 
ness Manager, and her assistants, Ellen 
(Red Efficiency) Kane, and new member 
Ruth Reynolds, attended to the Board's 
business dealings — buying the cover, 
scheduling senior portraits and campus 
shots with the 1944 Index photographer, 
selling advertisements, taking orders for 
books on into April — with feminine 
methods and business success. 

Other members of the Board were Lee 
Filios, Associate Editor, who wrote edi- 
torial letters to absent students and the 
Board's non-College associates, and filed 
the informal snapshots of the seniors; 
Literary members, Kay Dellea and Marie

Hauck; and newly-elected writers, Ele 
Bryant, Lois Banister, "Jidge" Gould, 
"McGee" O'Hagerty, and Eva Schiffer 
who slaved in that ascending order; 
Statistics members, Ethel Whitney, Dotty 
Beach, Midge Gunther, and Mary Carney 
and newly-elected statisticians Barbara 
Crowther, Ellie Nason, Nancy Newell, 
and Millie Griffiths. 

All worked, in the Index's corner of 
the College War Information Service 
room, to make the "woman's yearbook" 
an annual that could be compared only 
favorably with those published before 
the men left and after they return. In 
this they had the assistance of two com- 
panies. The Andover Press of Andover, 
and Greylock Photo-Engraving Company 
of North Adams, who repeated the good 
work they had done the previous year; 
and the help of a new photographer. 



South Hadley's noted Arthur Alvin. 

The only male influence on "The 1944 
Index in a Woman's World " was that 
furnished by the advisory reins of Doctor 
Maxwell H. Goldberg, and the financial 
brake of Professor Lawrence S. Dickin- 
son. 

Thus the Index reflects a war-year 
on campus through the eyes of women left 
behind. War is also apparent in the 
small number of photographs, due to the 
copper and film shortage, and the sub- 
sequent substitution of sketches, which 
are line-cuts, and thus processed with 
the more-abundant metal, zinc. And the 
greedy maw of war, has reduced, too, the 
student fees on which the Index budget 
is based, and thus the slimness of this 
volume which hopes to claim quality — 
even to its pre-war paper, please note — 
if not quantity.

In 1936, the Collegian Quarterly was 
born as a literary supplement to the 
Collegian. Then, with growth of interest 
in things more literary than agricultural, 
it metamorphosed into a separate booklet 
issued thrice yearly in its own covers. 
This year, the Quarterly again appeared 
as one sheet inserted in the Collegian — 
but only because of the war-drawn limits 
of the Collegian budget rather than 
because of any lack of interest and spirit 
among readers and contributors. 

In this very emergency, the strength 
of the Quarterly idea, that of a literary 
organ to reflect the ideas of the portion 
of the student body literarily-creative, 
proved itself. Last year's editorial board 
had adjourned to the war; but under the 
guidance of Dr. Maxwell H. Goldberg, 
its faculty advisor since it came into 
being, a group who believed in the 
Quarterly met to read, discuss, and select 
contributions for a potential issue. An 
executive board, consisting of David 
Balise '47, chairman; Roberta Miehlke 




'44, secretary; Barbara Cross '46, Jason 
Kirshen '46, and Eva Schifl^er '46, was 
elected to compose the issue. After four 
two-hour sessions, the material selected 
by fifteen to twenty students was turned 
over to the editorial board, who prepared 
the two-page issue. Though, because of 
lack of funds, there could be no second 
issue of the Quarterly this year, the gen- 
erous interest of the Collegian dedicated 
a weekly section to "Quarterly Clip- 
pings, " articles for which there was not 
enough room in the issue. 

The Quarterly is a mosaic. Its contribu- 
tions are of many sizes and forms, of vary- 
ing brilliance and color. It strives for 
excellence; but, as a mosaic, it seeks 
artistic balance. Poetry and fiction — 
short stories and character sketches; 
critical and familiar essays, serious, 
whimsical, and satiric — all these compose 
it. Written by undergraduates, faculty 
members, aviation students, and alumni, 
some in the Armed Forces as far away as 
India and the Middle East, — written by 
that part of M.S.C. with an urge for 
written expression, these bits of literary 
tile make for the mosaic which is the 
Quarterly. 

The Quarterly needs more than the 
interest of contributors and critics and 
the patience of compilers. An artistic 
effort, it needs the effort of all writers 
to make it grow; the appreciation of all 
readers to want it and judge it. Only 
then is the Quarterly's creative circle 
complete. 

In April, election of the 1945 Board 
was held with those chosen determined 
to carry out the Quarterly policy decided 
this year.

The familiar maroon-and-white "M" 
book, edited by the S.C.A., gave the 
freshmen information about the customs 
and campus of Massachusetts State Col- 
^ lege again this year under such headings 
as Religious Activities, Student Govern- 
ment, Academic Activities, Traditions 
and Customs, and Sports. M.S.C., as 
usual indoctrinated its newest members. 

If a freshman girl wondered, wide-eyed, 
about some detail of fall or spring rush- 
ing, she had only to turn to that section 
headed "Social Activities" to find com- 
plete Rushing Regulations. Convenient, 
too, was "Who's Who at M.S.C." by 
which the unenlightened could learn the 
names, at least, of some of the campus 
celebrities. Under "Music," the so- 
inclined members of the newest class 
could find "vital statistics" concerning 
musical organizations. Pictures of the 
various governmental groups aided in 
orientation. Invaluable, too, to the be- 
wildered class of '47, was the guide map 
of the campus with its helpful key, and 
pictures of buildings. 

The board is made up of students in- 
terested in writing for the "M" book, 
each choosing his own assignment. This 
year the Frosh Bible was compiled by a 
staff consisting of Anne Stafford and 
Claire Healy, Co-Editors; Hyman Hersh- 
man, Business Manager; Mary Jane 
Bolton, Marjorie Brett, Barbara Cross, 
John Delevoryas, Diane Kelton, Florence 
Melnick, Anne Merrill, Eleanor Nason, 
Eleanor Rockwood and Helen Timson, 
Editorial Board; Lucy King and Phoebe 
Wood, Business Board; and Rev. W. 
Burnet Easton, Faculty Advisor. 






Despite greatly reduced membership, 
this is the second year that the Debating 
Club has continued under the able direc- 
tion of Mr. Mark Rand, debating coach 
at Northampton High School. President 
Emerson Hibbard '46, and Managers 
Roger Richards '46 and Genevieve Novo 
'46 are striving for an expansion and 
strengthening of the club. 

At weekly meetings, the members 
Roger Richards '46, Ruth Reynolds '46, 
Jason Kirshen '46, Joseph Kunces '45, 
Jack Blalock '46, Genevieve Novo '46, 
and Emerson Hibbard '46 test their 
forensic ability through intra-club de- 
bates. A sample was presented at the 
January 13th convocation, in the form 
of a debate on the subject, "Resolved: 
That an international police force should 
be established after the war." The club 
lost Richard Joyce '46, former president, 
to the Army in January. 

Though lack of transportation re- 
stricted inter-collegiate debates, a debate 
was held here against Rhode Island State 
College.

Femininity took over the Roister Dois- 
ters, State's dramatic society, this year 
just as every other campus Academic 
Activity was transformed. Lack of actors 
and over abundance of actresses led to the 
temporary aboHshment of the customary 
Inter-class Play Competition Social Union 
program. In its place, Ophelia Takes the 
Cup, written, directed, produced, and 
acted by M.S.C. students, provoked roars 
of laughter. A satire on campus life, the 
play was based on a fictitious sorority, 
Omicron Xi, as it conducted its rushing, 
cattily reviewing the prospective ad- 
vantages and disadvantages of having 
Susie Freshman as one of their hallowed 
society. Entwined in the story, were 
exaggerated pictures of an informal con- 
vocation, daytime library study, busy- 
body housemothers, college store, both 
as a rendezvous and as a place for long 
hours and hard work, a freshman dormi- 





tory in its confusion, and cadets. The suc- 
cessful satire was produced through the 
efforts of Professor Rand, club advisor; 
Pauline Bell and Ruth Steele, authors; 
Lee Filios and Kim Strong, creators and 
directors of the dances; and Shirley 
Spring, stage manager. 

Officers this year were: Pauline Bell, 
President; Lee Filios, Vice-President. 
Members were Helen Murray, Martha 
Treml, Roberta Miehlke, Betty Huban, 
Mary Quinn, Doris Roberts, Kay Dellea, 
Lucille Chaput, Betty Mentzer, Kim 
Strong, Ruth Ewing, Barbara Bigelow, 
Shirley Spring, Ruth Steele, Connie 
Scott, Elaine Jones, Alice Motyka, Dor- 
othy Morton, Daphne CuUinan, Jason 
Kirshen, George Fairfield, James Coffey, 
Ruth Symonds, Ray HoUis, Jean Gould, 
Albert Caron, George Pushee, Hyman 
Edelstein, Virginia LaPlante, Mary Vir- 
ginia Rice, Esther Goldstein, Dorothea 
Smith, Dorothea Beach, Frances Judd, 
Irmarie Scheuneman, and Herman Got- 
tesman. 

Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost was 
given the 29th of April and at Com- 
mencement. Intriguingly stylized, the 
play was presented in all its unrealistic, 
euphuistic comedy to the spring-fevered 
audience.

The instrumental group of Massachu- 
setts State College, the Sinfonietta, this 
year has contributed its efforts toward 
developing soloists and perfecting the 
difBcult art of accompaniment. 

The first and only project undertaken 
this year by the Sinfonietta as a group 
was the important task of rehearsing the 
score of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, 
"The Mikado." The success of the per- 
formance was in large part due to the 
ability of the Sinfonietta members in co- 
operating with principals and chorus. 

Fine accomplishment has been shown 
in supplying soloists for campus affairs 
and numerous concerts held in nearby 
towns, thus bettering the reputation of 
M.S.C.'s talent. The Cadet Band has 
been thankful for the contribution of 
Barbara Beals '47 and her trumpet. 
John Delevoryas '46, who distinguished 
himself last year as a freshman pianist, 
presented a joint concert with Doric 
Alviani as a Fine Arts program, and 
played a special arrangement of Ravel's 
"Pavanne" with the Glee Club as a 
background at their concert, "My Coun- 
try." Claire Healy '46 and her violin 
have become well established in many 
campus clubs, especially on the radio as 
participant in 4-H Club programs. 

The organization, composed of many 



M. £. e. 



more girls than boys this year, chose this 
sophomore as their concertmistress. Reg- 
ular rehearsals of the Sinfonietta were 
held in the Memorial Hall on Wednesday 
evenings under the direction of Doric 
Alviani. 

"Sinfoniers" and their instruments 
were as follows : 

Claire Healy, violin, concertmistress; 
Audrey Townsend, cello; Ruby Almgren, 
tuba; Cecilia Hansen, violin; Dorothy 
Barrett, flute; Faith Jillson, flute; Gladys 
Geiger, violin; Nancy Love, clarinet; 
Barara Beals, trumpet; Lorna Calvert, 
cello; Richard Swan, trombone; Jane 
Turner, clarinet; Natalie Hay ward, vio- 
lin; Jane Londergan, violin; Joseph 
Cohen, clarinet; Carol White, violin; 
Amy Clark, trombone; Dana Jost, trom- 
bone; Dorothy Holly, oboe; Jean Cum- 
mings, clarinet; John Delevoryas, piano.

Just as women seem to have taken the 
men's places almost everywhere else, so 
they have in campus music. 

First big event for the Women's Glee 
Club after the fall operetta (see page 122), 
was the Social Union concert, "My 
Country, " during the Winter Carnival. 
The Glee Club opened the program 
singing "My Country" with Ruth 
Steele as narrator. Then the coeds' ver- 
satility was really shown. Soloists Ruth 
Steele and Betty Bates provided the 
humorous element while Lucille Chaput 
and Irene Strong carried on where Joe 
Courriveau had left off in the spirituals 
last year. The male contingent did well 
with John Delevoryas combining with 
the Glee Club to score a hit with "Pa- 
vanne" and Jimmy Coffey, complete

with nightgown and cap, following suit 
to bring down the house with "Dangerous 
Dan McGrew." The Glee Club also lent 
their support to Jean Thomas and 
Roberta Miehlke in a duet, and soloist 
Elaine Schultz. Carrying on in their 
accustomed role though reduced to three, 
Bea Decatur, Lee Hodges and Barbara 
Bird, the Statettes, "gave out" with 
"People Will Say We're in Love" and a 
superb arrangement of "St. Louis Blues." 
The customary sextette, the Bay Sta- 
tettes, were back in action this year with 
Lucille Lawrence, Betsy Tilton, Jean 
Thomas, Barbara Baird, Mary Milner 
and Betty Bates. First they convulsed 
the audience with "The Martins and the 
Coys" and then impressed them with 
Shostakovitz's "United Nations." The 
coeds again replaced the men when an 
octet, known as the "Statesmenettes, " 
took the place vacated by the Statesmen. 
The Statesmenettes are Wilma Winberg, 
Marguerite Krackhardt, Eleanor Mon- 
roe, Ruth Murray, Dorothy Johnson,

Martha Harrington, Rosemary Jeffway 
and Marie Hauck, who did a "sharp job" 
on "Johnny Comes Marching Home." 

The Glee Club, Statettes and Betty 
Bates put everything they had into the 
lilting, catchy tunes from "Oklahoma" 
to finish the performance on a high note. 

In the "Mikado," too, the dearth of 
males was evident. The role of Pish-Tush, 
usually male, was jointly handled by 
Lee Hodges as Pish and Barbara Bird as 
Tush — or maybe it was the other way 
around — anyway, they did it ! The chorus 
of nobles, too, though as lusty as ever 
before, had amazingly high-pitched voices. 

Women's music came brilliantly into 
its own in the March production of 
"Hansel and Gretel. " The special adapta- 
tion of the opera by Humperdinck was 
produced with an all-girl cast and chorus, 
of which half were Hansels and half 
Gretels. The scenery was simple but 
effective and the action was limited, 
novelly enough, to the principals. 

Grand Central Station was next as the 
club presented "My Country" to the 
New York alumni in the Hotel Roose- 
velt. Then the girls entertained at the 
famous Stage Door Canteen. On April 
21, the hospitalized men of Westover 
Field said of the girls and their concert, 
"They're all right!" Doric was justly 
proud. 






Again, Glee Club aspirants in the 
freshman class donned the maroon robes 
so familiar to Vesper-goers to provide a 
beautiful musical background to the 
religious services every Simday afternoon 
in Memorial Hall. This womanly year, 
the voices were all feminine, emphasizing 
even in religion that the 1943-1944 M.S.C. 
campus is a woman's world. 

But Vespers is not the only place these 
hardworking freshmen were heard blend- 
ing their voices. Doric Alviani in his 
convocation program, "Fresh Music," 
presented his choir in their first appear- 
ance on the stage of Bowker Auditorium 
offering the popular "People Will Say 
We're in Love," "You May Tell Them 
Father, " an early American hymn tune, 
and "Oh Holy Father." There again on 
Scholarship Day they rendered very effec- 
tively the New England folk tune, "Oh 
Bury Me Not on the Deep Sea." 

As traditionally at Christmas Vespers, 
the Glee Club and Choir again combined 
their talents. They presented "O Holy 
Night" and arrangements of Christmas 
carols.

This year saw the breaking of two 
precedents in connection with operettas. 
For the first time, a Gilbert and SulHvan 
operetta was repeated, wlien the "Mi- 
kado" was produced in December. The 
second precedent was smashed by the 
production of two operettas in one year 
when "Hansel and Gretel" was put on 
in March. As usual though, Doric di- 
rected. 

The "Mikado" was produced under 
many handicaps, not the least of which 
was the shortage of men. Some of the girls 
successfully substituted for tenors and 
basses in the male chorus, however, and 
enough enterprising young men were 
found to take the principal male roles. 
The rest of the girls were shy and innocent 
little "maids from school" and proved 
very adept in the use of their fans. 

The leads were taken by Bea Decatur 
as Yum-Yum and John Weidhaas as 
Nanki Pooh who made a fetching pair of 
sweethearts. This "man and maid" were 
supported by Jean Thomas as Katisha, 
the villainess, horrifying and shrewish; 
Abe Reisman as Ko-Ko, the Lord High 
Executioner; Donald Schurman as the 
impressive if slightly screwy Mikado; 
Steve Waldron, pompous and padded, 
as Pooh-Bah, Lord High Everything Else; 
versatile Betty Bates as Pitti-Sing, Ruth 
Steele as Peep-Bo; and Lee Hodges and 
Barbara Bird sharing the role of Pish- 
Tush, usually a male undertaking. In the 
first performance, of the operetta, Lucille 
Chaput did an impressive job of substi- 
tuting as Peep-Bo when Ruth Steele was 
in the infirmary. 

The unobtrusive Sinfonietta accom- 
panied the chorus and principals alike 
with its usual skill. 



Margarete Ziegengeist was in charge of 
the costuming and Kim Strong supervis- 
ed the exceptionally well-done make-up. 

The second operetta, a special adapta- 
tion of Humperdinck's "Hansel and 
Gretel" was presented in March with an 
all-girl cast. The parts of Hansel and 
Gretel were taken by Betty Bates and 
Ruth Steele, respectively, and were done 
with a finesse which left nothing to be 
desired. The Cookie Witch, addicted to 
baking little children into cookies, was 
portrayed with skill by Wilma Winberg. 
Betsy Tiltion took the part of the 
children's mother and Lucille Chaput 
was a lusty father. Elaine Schultz, Jean 
Thomas, and Bea Decatur were fine 
Sandmen; and Marguerite Krackhardt, 
Lee Hodges, and Ruth Symonds were 
Dewmen. 

Witches were Patricia Bangs, Delight 
Bullock, Esther Coffin; and the Angels 
Jean Cummings, Barbara Davis, Mar- 
jorie Flint, Elaine Jones, Betty Julian, 
Jane Londergan, Pauline Morlock, Laura 
Resnick, Connie Rothery, Louise Sharp, 
Frances White, Patricia Bangs, Delight 
Bullock and Esther Coffin. The Cookie 
Children, enacted by the Glee Club, 
stayed in the orchestra pit. 

The scenery was anything but elab- 
orate, being all "flats" and merely sug- 
gesting the setting, but the lighting 
played an important and effective part. 

With a surprisingly few number of 
rehearsals, the operetta proved a shining 
success. Some of the particularly memor- 
able scenes were the enchanting little 
dancing scene and the beloved "Evening 
Prayer." The Physi-Ed. Department's 
"Flit" classes provided the groups of 
dancers, who did praiseworthy work.

Wednesday evening, October 20th, the 
Social Union season opened with a pre- 
sentation by Ted Shawn, internationally 
known dancer. He opened with a lecture 
on the development of the dance, follow- 
ing the decline of this plastic art upon the 
rise of the Christian church through to its 
rebirth in America after the Civil War. 
Mr. Shawn then demonstrated his ability 
in a series of dances based upon religious 
themes and various folk dances. 

October 28th, M.S.C. once again bene- 
fited by the presence of a talented artist. 
Lillian Gish, noted star of stage and 
screen, gave an autobiographical lecture 
entitled "Odyssey of a Trouper." She 
recalled several anecdotes from her acting 
career and travels, and answered many 
questions from the audience. 

The third program, presented on the 
evening of November 16th, was a varia- 
tion from any previous entertainments, or 
any to come, for the artist was the nine- 
year-old prodigy, Richard Korbel. How- 
ever, knee socks and Eton suit proved no 
limitation of pianistic ability, as his rendi- 
tions of Scarlatti, Bach, and Chopin 
proved. 

A noted American sculptor, Randolph 
Johnston, lectured in Bowker Auditorium 
on December 9th to an enthusiastic audi- 
ence. As he discussed the difference be- 
tween two and three-dimensional art, he 
sketched and modeled a bust to illustrate 
his points. Dr. Adrian H. Lindsey, head 
of the Department of Agricultural Eco- 
nomics, and well-known, especially to the 
Wesley Foundation group, was the "vic- 
tim." Mr. Johnston is a noted author 
and illustrator as well as being an emi- 
nent sculptor. 

The first Social Union of the new year 



originated with the students themselves, 
when on February 5th, the Roister 
Doisters presented "Ophelia Takes the 
Cup," an hilarious satire on campus life. 
(See the article on Roister Doisters.) The 
play was skillfully bound together by 
burlesques of well-known campus places 
and personalities, such as the College 
Store, the Libe, and Dean Burns. Not 
forgotten in the production were the air 
students, several of whom generously 
donated their services to add to the suc- 
cess of the presentation. 

The last evening program of the year 
was another student-produced entertain- 
ment. Opening the Winter Carnival 
Weekend, on February 18th the Glee Club 
produced a concert entitled "My Coun- 
try." (See articles on the Women's Glee 
Club, Winter Carnival, and Events of the 
Year.) Songs from the Broadway produc- 
tion "Oklahoma," were featured — songs 
which, oddly enough, returned to New 
York when the Glee Club sang them at 
the Stage Door Canteen and the Alumni 
Meeting on their trip to New York in 
April.

Purposing to cultivate greater interest 
in the arts, Professor Vondell, chairman 
of the Fine Arts Council, started this 
year's programs Avigust 15-22, when, in 
cooperation with the Amherst Women's 
Club and under Doric's general adminis- 
tration, an "Amherst Festival" was held 
in honor of the late Professor Frank 
Waugh. The week's program included 
Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being 
Earnest," directed by Mr. Varley and 
acted by State students; a concert of 
voice, flute, and piano by faculty wives 
and students; a program of poetry writ- 
ten by Amherst people; a square dance; 
and a choir concert. 

On November 7, a joint concert by 
John Delevoryas '46 and Doric Alviani 
presented them as baritone and piano 
soloist respectively. The second faculty 
recital, in the Old Chapel on November 21 
offered Esther Strong Clapp, mezzo- 
soprano. 

On January 4, 1944, "I Have a Son" 
was produced by Professor Rand's dra- 
matic production class, which designed 
and made scenery, and did all — even 



Hugh Hodgson 







put on its own make-up. Kasha Thayer 
directed, and Marjorie Reed was stage 
manager. Then Miss Horrigan and Pro- 
fessor James Robertson of the faculty led 
a panel of constructive criticism. Another 
play, "Chimney Corner," was produced 
on January 13, with Edna Greenfield as 
director and Pauline Bell as stage man- 
ager. 

On February 20, Elaine Schultz '46, 
soloist of the Glee Club concert, and Jean 
Thomas '45, distinguished Katisha of 
"The Mikado," presented solos and three 
duets, accompanied by Doric, at the fifth 
annual Student Recital of the Fine Arts 
Program. 

"Mask-Making as a Hobby" by Pro- 
fessor Frank P. Rand, was given on 
March 5 at Butterfield. Talking while 
molding clay, he gave the general back- 
ground of mask-making, while produc- 
ing a face from plasticine. 

Beginning March 14, the musical or- 
ganizations, under the direction of Doric 
Alviani, sponsored a four-day music 
festival of "American Musicians." The 
first recital, a program of American 
music, was given by John Duke, pianist, 
and Louise Rood, violist. The following 
afternoon, Robert McBride, oboe, clari- 
net, and English horn player, was ac- 
companied by Gregory Tucker. The next 
evening, they were joined in a recital 
by Hugh Hodgson, also a pianist. At the 
last festival program. Parallels and Con- 
trasts, Hugh Hodgson demonstrated his 
ability at the piano. Each teaches at 
Smith, Bennington, or the University of 
Georgia. 

On April 12, Miss Horrigan's Literary 
Interpretation class presented poetry 
declamations.

"Oh, to be on campus, now that sum- 
mer's there!" sighed many a Statesman 
amidst the thump and roar and sputter of 
a Victory machine. Meanwhile, to the 
scales of the chimes and the harmonized 
choruses of the Air Corps, Massachusetts 
State marched, ambled, and pedalled to 
its seven-thirty classes. 

Down the hill the students came, for 
Butterfield House was both a college 
dining hall and the women's dormitory. 
They were a mixed group: four-year stu- 
dents accelerating their course, February 
freshmen, summer freshmen, and guests 
from other colleges. Formerly, fifty to 
seventy-five percent of a summer's group 
consisted of students from other colleges 
and, especially, high school teachers. This 
time, guests from Vassar, Simmons, 
Syracuse, and A.I.C. were in minority. 

So, while cadets were marching in 
platoons and Smith girls were loading hay, 
preoccupied chemists reveled in the com- 
pany of hydrogen sulfide. Though some 
eager .scholars argued that one might 




U'fi/S/<^'^.f^>\ UjiiiW-^^"- ^'^ 



easily carry a three-course curriculum for 
each of the two six-week periods, the ma- 
jority enjoyed the intimacy reached with 
only two courses, with two lecture hours 
given daily in each. 

The days of some of the coeds were 
filled by weeding at the college farm, 
whence they emerged to shock Doric's 
class with dungarees and shirts caked 
with dirt. To cool off after honest sweat, 
they often dragged their weary limbs up 
Butterfield Hill and gave themselves to a 
shower from Mr. Dumpsey's hose. 

Two hours of tennis after supper 
stimulated appetites. The obvious remedy 
was ripe tomatoes in faculty victory 
gardens. One dark night, as the group was 
sneaking along Prof. 's rows (cen- 
sored for safety), their arms laden, they 
heard the watchman preparing for pur- 
suit in his car. In headlong flight, they 
rushed for shelter from the headlights 
and threw themselves flat under some 
convenient bushes — into a bed of poison 
ivy. They escaped the watchman 

Saturday night, one o'clock permissions 
for Amherst cadets — twelve o'clock cur- 
few for girls — was a problem to tax Mrs. 
Whipple's patience to the utmost. At a 
house meeting, she finally announced in 
exasperation, "This is too much. Twenty- 
three girls came in one door last night 
after one, and eight in the other. I know, 
because I counted them !" 

There were other pleasant distractions: 
dances at Butterfield; Mr. Varley's pro- 
duction of Oscar Wilde's farce. The Im- 
portance of Being Earnest, at the Jones 
Library, during the Frank K. Waugh 
Festival Week held in memory of Profes- 
sor Waugh; a scavenger hunt; successful 
U.S.O. dances.

In the spring of 1943, the people on 
M.S.C.'s campus gaped, while the rem- 
nants of an already depleted male student 
body moved out of Lewis and Thatcher 
dormitories. Still bewildered, the faculty, 
coeds, and administrative body saw 
truckload after truckload of army equip- 
ment draw up before the dorms on the 
hill, khaki-colored supplies dispersed, and 
trucks rumbling back where they came. 
Sunday evening, February 28, 1943, the 
Army Air Corps students moved into the 
dorms, and marched down to Draper for 
meals and into the hearts of the people 
who had been waiting for them. 

Coeds flocked to Miss Skinner's office 
to procure U.S.O. Junior Hostess cards. 
They danced, laughed, talked, and joked 
with the cadets, and learned more about 
their country than they could ever hope 
to in four ordinary college years. 

The faculty vaulted into long hours of 
concentrated teaching — history, geogra- 
phy, government, mathematics, physics, 
English — all the subjects required in the 
pre-flight course. 

The administration did serious planning 
in the summer of 1943. The "Abbey" 
was no longer a dorm for upperclass 
women; it had suffered the same fate as 
Lewis and Thatcher. The vacated fra- 
ternity houses became upperclass hang- 
outs, after being cleaned, repaired, and 
painted. 

A cadet-coed formal was held on 
October 30th. Representatives from wom- 
en's organizations on campus cooperated 
with cadet representatives to make the 
formal dance a great success. The cadets' 
esteem of M.S.C. coeds was shown when 
they chose Elaine Schultz '46 queen of 
their ball. The students of M.S.C. then 



sponsored a Winter Carnival weekend, 
mostly for cadets. An "open house" 
program was proposed by Panhellenic 
whereby cadets were entertained in 
sorority and "frarority" houses. 

Cadets entertaining M.S.C.'s campus? 
Sure, by their antics in marching from 
class to class. It was not unusual to see 
them split ranks, surround a coed and 
escort her to class, much to her individual 
embarrassment and to the great delight 
of her friends. The hilariousness of 
"frosh" hazing was heightened by the 
presence of the 58th, who cooperated 
fully in making them feel like complete 
"duds." 

The memory of the "singing 58th" 
will never fade from M.S.C.'s memory. 
Here could be heard strains of "Six- 
pence," there could be heard "God Bless 
America," far away "She's Just a Per- 
sonal Friend of Mine," and nearby "Oh, 
My Feet Hurt, Ugh!" All were combined 
into a glorious medley, with a rhythmic 
ba.ss of "hut, hoo, hee, hoe."

One of the few State traditions not too 
affected by the war, Winter Carnival 
was once more the highhghted weekend 
of the winter season. Although every 
devoted Statesman during the two weeks 
before Carnival prayed at least once daily 
for snow, only a few patches of white 
could be seen scattered on the brown 
stubble of the fields. 

A month before the event, plans were 
laid by the committee, Joe Kunces, Jim 
Coffey, Lucille Chaput, Kay Dellea, 
Barbara Bird, Art Teot, Abe Beisman 
and Doris Roberts. Helen Beaumont and 
Ruth Ewing designed attractive posters 
advertising the Ball. 

Because of lack of snow, there were no 
cross country ski races Friday afternoon. 
In the evening amusicale,MyCo«w<r!/,was 
presented by the Women's Glee Club. The 
lack of male voices was hardly noticed 
as the girls put their best into such songs 
as "This is My Country" and "Oh! 
AVhat a Beautiful Morning," to make 
the affair the musical hit of the year. 
Special numbers were sung by the Sta- 
tettes, the Bay Statettes, and a new octet, 
called the Statesmenettes. Ruth Steele, 
Betty Bates, and Jim Coffey added to the 
success of the production by adding their 
humor. Who could forget that handsome 
figure in a nightshirt? 

Saturday morning there was no change 
in the usual routine of classes. At two 
o'clock, the braver and more hardy souls 
among the ski club obtained permission 
from Captain Congleton to risk their 
necks on the 13/2 inches of snow covering 
the hill behind Thatcher. Slaloms and 
obstacle races were run by both men and 
women, with no bones broken. 

At eight o'clock the Music Maestros 
from Springfield began a four-hour session 
of .swing as couples were deposited at the 
Drill Hall by the wagon load. The hall 



was again decorated with The Storm of 
Colors. 

At 10:30, the Queen of the Carnival, 
lovely Elaine Schultz, and the members 
of her court were announced by the 
judges, Mrs. Whipple and Doctors Ritch- 
ie, Fraker, Cary, and Helming. The eight 
girls chosen for the court were Helen 
Beaumont, Ruth Steele, Roberta Miehlke, 
Frances White, Ruth Sperry, Kay Dellea, 
Mary A'achon and Eleanor Barber. 

Another high point of the dance was 
Dean Burns' demon.stration of his well- 
known scarf dance, followed by an oration 
on the merits of M.S.C.'s Winter Carnival- 

A great many ex-Statesmen returned in 
uniform for the one big formal of the year. 
It was these familiar faces that increased 
the spirit of tradition permeating the 
weekend, and left the feeling that in 
spite of the war, M.S.C. was still M.S.C.

Frosh hazing — that deHghtful week in 
autumn when new girls have an oppor- 
tunity to work off excess energy at the 
leisure and discretion of the sophomores. 
The thought of hazing struck terror into 
the lasses of '47 from that first Sunday 
evening when the regulations of the com- 
ing chaos were delivered to them. 

The blossoming of two-hundred snowy 
berets on that last Wednesday in Sep- 
tember marked open season on freshman 
girls. At any time during the following 
week a stranger to the campus would 
have wondered at their mental state. 
Would anyone in her right mind wear a 
raincoat and boots on a sunny day and, 
what's more, carry an open umbrella 
with brightly colored socks hanging from 
the spokes? Would a normal person 
plaster makeup on half the face only, or 
wear a red skirt with an orange sweater? 
However, what the sophs ordained, the 
frosh fulfilled. 

Of all the planned enterprises, none 
was anticipated with so much glee as 
were the two sunrise serenades. Thursday 
morning about five-thirty, the girls were 
awakened by the gentle touch of the 
solicitous sophomores, Carolyn Whit- 



more, Jean Gould, Holly James, Martha 
Harrington, and Ruth Kitson, who herded 
them out into the inky blackness. After 
rollcall was taken, the girls were urged to 
trot around to the sorority houses where 
they demonstrated their vocal ability, 
much to the li-steners' delight. Glad to see 
someone else out at that early hour the 
air students, too, appreciated this diver- 
sion. 

On the following Saturday, this routine 
was repeated, but after rollcall was taken, 
the jaunt was called off, due to hesitancy 
on the sophs' part to accompany the eager 
freshmen in the pouring rain. Rumor has 
it that this turn of events put the damper 
on a carefully planned sit-down strike! 

Biggest event of the week was the Pond 
Party. Due to the moist condition of the 
air, the request that housecoats be worn 
was revoked in favor of dungarees and 
shirts. Fishpoles, varying from curtain 
rods to yardsticks, were the order of the 
day; and business-minded girls made a 
profit by providing the specified number 
of live worms for a small fee. In the time 
allotted each girl for trying her luck, four 
fish were hooked. Entertainment at the 
party was provided by any frosh who had 
erred during the week. Excitement ran 
high. In fact, one member of the hazing 
committee came rather near raising the 
water level of the college pond! 

In the next three weeks, hopping 
numerals, singing "Alma Mater" in the 
C-Store, and carrying books of more 
privileged sophs, became everyday oc- 
currences, until berets were doffed, and 
the freshman girls became undergrad- 
uates. 

Freshman boys wore their usual ma- 
roon Eton caps, serenaded coeds at sun- 
rise, and were duly dunked in the Pond by 
the Senate for any misdemeanors.

The Commencement program this year 
emphasized the greatly reduced size of the 
student body. Arrangements were made 
to hold the soph-senior dance, by tradi- 
tion a memorable part of the graduation 
weekend, three weeks before commence- 
ment while all four classes were still on 
campus. Held semi-formally, in accord- 
ance with the vanity of the ladies and the 
war-time facilities of the men, the dance 
was a great success, perhaps especially 
because neither of the classes sponsoring 
it had dared hope for its realization. 

The program, as arranged by the Com- 
mencement Committee, consisting of 
Douglas Hosmer, Robert Stewart, Rob- 
ert Monroe, Irving Nichols, Marion 
Whitcomb, Jean Burgess, Ruth Symonds, 
and Lee Filios, began with the Senior 
Convocation, on May 4. Following the 
Processional, President Baker delivered a 
short address. Edward Putala gave the 
class oration. Then Douglas Hosmer, 
president of the Class of 1944, presented 
the class gift, a sum of money to be added 
to the gift of the Class of 1943 for the 




purchase of a memorial plaque to the 
heroes of this war. Though Adelphia was 
not functioning this year, Isogon, the 
women's senior honor society, proceeded 
with its customary tapping. A short fare- 
well address by Dean Machmer, the sing- 
ing of the Alma Mater, and a Recessional 
concluded the ceremony. 

When all but the seniors had left 
Stockbridge Hall and were strolling 
along the walks, students turned at the 
sound of song. The seniors had taken 
possession of the Stockbridge steps, in the 
traditional manner, and were singing the 
Alma Mater. 

^Likewise set ahead to the week of the 
Senior Convocation was the Flint Ora- 
torical Contest, under the direction of 
Mr. Clyde Dow. Among this year's con- 
testants were James Coffey '45, Barbara 
Bemis '44, Elizabeth Mentzer '45, and 
Wallace Hibbard '44. 

Friday night was held the senior class 
party, combined with the alumni recep- 
tion, renewing the traditional acceptance 
of the seniors into the ranks of the alumni. 

On Saturday, May 20, the Alimmi 
Meeting was held, at which William V. 
Hayden '13 was re-elected president of 
the Alumni Association. Because of 
transportation difficulties and other war 
impediments, class reunions were this 
year restricted to the presence on campus 
of members of the Classes of 1894 and 
1899. Of the former, celebrating their 
fiftieth reunion, 11 members of the 17 
now living were present. It was an- 
nounced that the alumni are again, this 
year, as in the past two or three years, 
using the alumni fund set up by classes to 
l)uy war bonds instead of using it for 
the needs of the Alumni Association.

After the meeting of the Board of 
Trustees at 11 o'clock, followed the an- 
nual dinner given by President Baker. 
Meanwhile, the senior class had assembled 
in front of the Memorial Building to pro- 
ceed, under the leadership of the two 
marshals, in smaller groups than usual, 
to Bowker Auditorium for Class Day 
exercises. Features of the program were 
the customary Hatchet oration, delivered 
by Bob Stewart, the Pipe oration by Ray 
Hollis, the Campus by Irving Nichols, 
the Class by Norman Bornstein, the Ivy 
by Lee Filios. The Class Ode was written 
and presented by Pauline Bell. 

On Saturday evening, at seven o'clock, 
took place the President's Reception, 
held at the President's house rather than 
in the rhododendron garden, where Am- 
herst weather had too often played for the 
seniors its typically unpredictable finale. 

The eventful day was culminated with 
the presentation, by the Roister Doisters, 
of Love's Labour's Lost, the first Shake- 



spearean play to be presented for several 
years by the society. The stage setting 
was stylized, stimulative to the imagina- 
tion of the audience, and somewhat sug- 
gestive of the scenery employed in 
Shakespeare's own day. 

That night, too, though no official 
class reunions were scheduled, sorority 
houses were open to their alumnae, and 
bull sessions were numerous and long. 

At 10 o'clock on Sunday morning. May 
21, 1944, Commencement exercises were 
held in Bowker Auditorium. Dr. Julius 
Warren, State Commissioner of Educa- 
tion, delivered the commencement ad- 
dress, following the Invocation by Rabbi 
Arthur Hertzberg. Because of crowded 
schedules, the customary baccalaureate 
was this year omitted. Various prizes 
were announced, and the degrees were 
conferred in the ceremony that released 
for their various jobs another group of 
men and women who, three days before, 
had been steeped in examinations.

The word, "Alumni," as used by the 
Alumni Office at the College, is commonly 
understood to include both men and 
women — and in the lists of Alumni in 
Uniform, as maintained by the office, 
there appear the names of a good many 
women. Alumnae of Massachusetts State 
are serving in the WAC, WAVES, 
SPARS, Marine Corps Reserve, Army 
Nurse Corps, Navy Nurse Corps, the 
American Red Cross. 

Sergeant Catherine M. Birnie, '37, 
WAC, summed up, perhaps, the feeling 
of Alumnae in Uniform when she recently 
wrote to the Alumni Office, "As a mem- 
ber of the WAC, I am glad to be doing a 
part in our campaign for victory and an 
enduring peace." Then she added, "I 
hope to go overseas soon." 

Sergeant Eunice M. Johnson, '33, 
WAC, is laboratory technician at the 
medical replacement training center at 
Camp Grant, Illinois. She is assigned to 
the laboratory of the Station Hospital 



which, she wrote, is "an excellent one." 

Lieutenant Elizabeth M. Clapp, '39, 
WAC, is dietitian at the Station Hospital 
at Camp Davis in North Carolina. 

Ensign Geraldine I. Bradley, '39, NNC, 
has served at the Chelsea, Mass., Naval 
Hospital and at the St. Albans Naval 
Hospital, Long Island. Now she is as- 
signed to the Naval Operating Base at 
Norfolk and recently wrote, "I'm all 
enthusiasm over my new duty." 

Lieutenant (2nd) Nancy E. Luce, '40, 
WAC, now overseas, wrote to the Alumni 
Office last fall about some phases of her 
army training. Her experiences, no doubt, 
are typical. Nancy wrote, in part, as 
follows : 

"Training in officer's school is all that 
you hear about it. There is nothing easy 
to it. Everything you do is 'on the double.' 
The only answers you dare to make are 
'yes ma'am', 'no ma'am', or 'no excuse 
ma'am.' The rest of the time you say 
absolutely nothing and rush from close-

order drill to classes in physical training, 
company administration, military sanita- 
tion, military customs and courtesy. 
Board and Court Procedures, Map read- 
ing (evidently I still can't understand a 
back azimuth), mess management, supply 
(which is one grand headache); and you 
find your notes look something like this 
— TlA equals TBA minus UPO plus 
CO divided by PPO subtracted from MR 
certified by USO and subdivided by SOS. 

"It certainly doesn't make a great deal 
of sense to you, I know — and it didn't to 
me, either, for quite a while. 

"The entire training is pretty inten- 
sive, and when you near the time for 
commission, you wonder if you shouldn't 
be appearing before 'the section 8 board' 
(ask any army man what I mean by this). 

"You know — as time goes on you find 
that this world gets smaller, and here is a 
good example of what I mean. 

"When I was traveling east on my 
leave from Iowa, I was talking to a 



soldier who was returning from Guadal- 
canal. This was his first time in the States 
for 18 months. I recalled that the Alumni 
Bulleiin had mentioned that Captain 
Willard O. Foster, Jr., '40 and Captain 
George T. Pitts, Jr., '40 were somewhere 
in Guadalcanal. I thought that by some 
queer twist of circumstances this soldier 
might have known these clas.smates of 
mine. He certainly did, and corrected me 
on the fact that they now had captain 
ratings and were not 1st Lieutenants as 
I had thought. (As the 1944 Index goes 
to press, both men are Majors.) 

"It seems to me that in reading the 
Alumni Bidletin, and seeing other reports, 
the R.O.T.C. unit at the College has 
turned out some of the best trained men 
the Army can boast. Massachusetts 
State College should be proud of her 



Ed. Note: — Massachusetts State is proud of her 
men and of her women.

Wednesday, September 22nd, Presi- 
dent Baker took his familiar stance on 
the platform of Bowker Auditorium to 
welcome back what was left of the three 
predominently female upper classes. Also 
on the welcoming committee were the 
freshmen, who after three days in resi- 
dence, already owned at least half the 
campus. However, during the next two 
weeks, through practice of the old institu- 
tion of hazing, the sophomores corrected 
any false impressions the frosh might 
have acquired. 

At the first convocation in October, 
Agnes Smedley gave an interesting lec- 
ture on China and its part in the war. 
The following week, convo was turned 
over to the Community Chest who began 
a campus-wide drive to collect $1500. 
Throughout the next few weeks, a 
thermometer in front of South College 
kept everyone up to date on the progress 
made in reaching the goal. 

The annual series of Social Unions be- 
gan on October 20th, when Ted Shawn 
gave a lecture followed by an exhibition 
of Denishawn dancing. On the 28th, 
Lillian Gish held her audience spellbound 
with tales of her life on the stage and 




screen. By this time those who had not 
wrenched their backs trying to imitate 
Shawn, were contemplating a glorious 
future on the stage. 

Then came Hallowe'en — "What! 
Dean's Saturday so soon!" Perhaps to 
compensate for those who were posted, 
and to celebrate for those who were not, 
the air students sponsored a formal dance 
in the Drill Hall. Elaine Schultz upheld 
the M.S.C. coed's claim to beauty by 
being crowned Queen of the Ball and 
Sweetheart of the 58th College Training 
Detachment. 

The following weekend the cadets took 
a back seat when the junior R.O.T.C. men 
returned from Fort Riley to State as part 
of the A.S.T.P. More than one coed 
pranced around in a state of blissful 
enchantment because "her man" had 
come back. Even those who had a less 
personal interest were more than glad to 
welcome the familiar faces back from the 
"Hole" in Kansas — otherwise known as 
Fort Riley. 

This same Sunday, the coeds opened 
the fall hunting season with the first 
Round Robin Tea of the year. Rushing 
was concentrated into two weeks during 
which time four teas. Closed Date, and 
pledging were held. 

The noise on campus had hardly 
abated to a dull roar that weekend of 
November 6th and 7th, when on Monday, 
the occupants of six fraternity houses 
awoke to find that they had been robbed 
of jewelry, money, and even bobby pins! 
For a few days Fraternity Row was over- 
run with police who measured muddy 
foottracks, and lifted elusive fingerprints. 
In spite of many attempts to track down 
the perpetrator(s) of this crime, it has 
remained State's unsolved mystery — 
page Ellery Queen.

The next week, too, was hectic. At 
Social Union on the 16th, Richard Korbel, 
nine-year-old pianist, held his audience 
open-mouthed as he whizzed through a 
program of diflBcult classical pieces. 
During this week Amherst's first snowfall 
was heralded with much glee by Southern 
cadets who went through the same antics 
Northern boys had performed in their 
distant childhood. Friday night was 
Closed Date for the six sororities who on 
Saturday shared 109 pledges. 

Thanksgiving vacation, November 21- 
27th, was a welcome rest. As relaxation 
from holiday effects, nearly everyone 
attended the Mikado, given December 
4th, successful despite lack of males. 

Friday, December 11th, Butterfield, 
Chi Omega and Tau Epsilon Phi House 
held the first vie parties of the semester, 
carrying out a favorable decision of the 
Student Life Committee as to the advis- 
ability of keeping on with the old tradi- 
tion during wartime. At about this same 
time, the much discussed petition was 
sent to the governor. Sunday, State once 
more parted with the Mill Majors, who 
left this time for Fort Benning's O.C.S. — 
future infantry officers. 

Christmas vacation, from the 17th to 
the 28th, was terminated before New 
Year's, regardless of the petition. To cele- 
brate the big night, students and air 
students danced and bowled in the Drill 
Hall and Memorial Building until one. 

January 6th, students were given the 
rare privilege of viewing an Air Corps 
hero in person when Major George Spel- 
man of the Class of '39 was awarded his 
B.S. degree at convo. An equal attraction 
was Dr. Osbert Warmingham, who spoke 
on "The Art of Successful Living." 

From the 17th to the 22nd, Statesmen 
once more took on that well known air of 
dejection and sleeplessness caused by 
semester finals. A brief break of four days 
(just long enough to get home and back 
again) was followed by mid-winter grad- 







uation on the 27th. Thirty-eight seniors 
were speeded on their way into a world 
at war by the principal speaker. Rear 
Admiral Wat T. Cluverius. 

With February came the sad news that 
the "beavers," those singing cadets, 
would be at M.S.C. no more after the 
1st of May. 

February 5th, at another Social Union, 
the Roister Doisters produced a satire on 
campus life, called Ophelia Takes the Cup. 
Perhaps the brand of humor produced 
had something to do with the fact that 
when, on February 11th, the Mobile 
Blood Donor Unit arrived at State, sever- 
al people were found to be anemic. 

For two weeks after the 18th and 19th, 
there was no violent excitement on 
campus. Carnival Weekend seemed to 
have done a thorough job of removing all 
surplus energy. 

On March 4th and 5th, Alpha Lambda 
Mu took the long-waited for step by 
joining a national sorority. Pi Beta Phi. 
It was also an open secret that the Beta 
Delta girls were accepting the aegis of 
Sigma Kappa later in the spring. 

As this year's Index goes to press, the 
history of the year is incomplete; but 
notwithstanding the continued decrease 
in numbers of the masculine element, 
there is still a prospect of good times yet 
to come. M.S.C. coeds can hope.
