Realizing the fact that our Two- Year Course is 
still in its infancy and that we, the Pioneer Class, in 
our activities will have considerable bearing on the 
welfare and future of the classes to follow, it is our 
desire to leave for the coming classes a high standard 
of action, both in the class room and among our asso- 
ciates on the campus. Tradition and custom are a 
determining -factor in promoting fellowship and loy- 
alty. Not only must this loyalty be evident while 
we are in college; we must make it felt when we go 
out into our life work. We feel that the establish- 
ment of this annual publication will help bind us 
together, and especially will it tend to make us loyal 
to our college, and our Two- Year Course, when we 
are alumni.

The members of the Class of 1921, the first large class to be graduated from 
the Two-Year Course, have lived through the pioneer days of the organization 
of the course. They are familiar with the proljlems arising in connection with 
its growth and development, and this history can be for them but a record of 
past experience. It is, however, a real pleasure to express at this time sincere 
appreciation of the spirit of loyalty and co-operation that has been shown by 
the members of this class, and to acknowledge that whatever progress may have 
been made is due in no small measure to the good sense and good will of this 
group of men and women. 

The position of Director of Short Courses was created in September, 1917, 
with a view to the further development of this type of service rendered by the 
college to the state. At that time plans for the further development of short 
courses were under consideration. One of these plans involved action on the 
resolution that had been passed in May, 1917, by both houses of the legislature 
of the Commonwealth (Senate No. 374) relative to the establishment of a Two- 
Year Course. At a meeting of the trustees held soon afterward it was voted 
that the resolution of the legislature should be carried out in letter and in spirit. 
The resolution adopted in concurrence is as follows: 

"Resolved, That in the opinion of the general court there should be estab- 
lished at the Massachusetts Agricultural College a two years' course in practical 
agriculture upon the completion of which certificates of graduation should be 
granted, that the course should be opened to all residents of the commonwealth 
who have attained the age of seventeen years and who possess the educa- 
tional qualifications necessary for admission to any public high school of the 

That the legislative resolution voiced a real demand for the organization 
of such a course in this state is shown by the increase in enrollment during the 
past three years in this course.

Though the attendance was small the first year, on account of the Federal 
draft, and unusually large the second year, owing to the fact that disabled men 
were sent to the college by the Federal Board for Vocational Education, the 
demand for this course in this state is shown by the fact that one hundred Fresh- 
men, exclusive of Federal men, were enrolled in September, 1920. The organi- 
zation of such courses in agricultural colleges is not a new departure in the serv- 
ice these institutions are rendering in the several states. Thirty-six of the forty- 
eight agricultural colleges offer one or two year short courses, and among these 
colleges are numbered some of the most powerful agricultural educational institu- 
tions. Short courses are another means of carrying out the. spirit of democracy in 
education that inspired the Morrill Act. 

The first term of the Two-Year Course was offered in December, 1917, and 


closed in March, 1918. On account of the labor conditions due to the war emer- 
gency it was deemed inadvisable to attempt more than a four months' course. 
During that winter, the course was organized on the two-year basis — the first 
year consisting of six months' study at the college, plus six months of farm prac- 
tice: the second year to consist of nine months' resident study. The experience 
of the past three years has shown that the course must provide education in 
certain fundamental subjects for all students, and offer at the same time provi- 
sion for a student to specialize in the particular lines of work in which he is inter- 
ested. At this writing the course is being reorganized to make greater special- 
ization possible. 

The objective of short course work is very clearly defined. It is to provide 
such practical instruction and training as will fit men and women for Massaichu- 
setts farms and Massachusetts farm life. The development of agriculture in 
Massachusetts necessitates the training of larger numbers of men and women 
who will have had such instruction as will enable them to make the farms pro- 
duce more and pay better, and to realize the opportunities offered by agriculture 
in the state. Many groups of men and women demand this kind of instruction. 
They vary from those who have finished the eighth grade to the college graduate, 
but the majority of short course students come with a background of practical 
farm experience and a certain maturity of thought and judgment arising out of 
life experience. 

No course would, however, serve the needs of young men and women which 
did not recognize fully the fact that the chief characteristic of farming is that it 
is both a life and a living. From the beginning, it has been part of the policy 
in the development of this course to create social and recreational advantages. 
The first step was the engagement of a coach, "Em." Grayson, who has built up 
baseball, basketball, football, track, etc. The fraternal life of the student body 
has been supported by class and other organizations. Thus far three clubs have 
been organized — the Kolony Klub, the A. T. G. Club, and the W. T. E. Club. 
A beginning has been made this year in the development of dramatics. It may 
be well to state here a few of the general policies of administration: (1) Sepa- 
rate classes are maintained for the two-year students in order that the instruc- 
tion may be adapted to the group and the fundamental principles of the courses 
be maintained. (2) The course is distinctly vocational in its nature and as 
intensive and practical as time and money permit. (3)' It is maintained by a 
separate budget, granted by the legislature, and is not a charge on the general 
college. Funds are provided for both instruction and maintenance. (4) In 
the employment of instructors, it has been the policy to secure men of college 
grade. These do not form a separate staff, but teach all classes and groups of 
students in the institution. (5) A large measure of personal responsibility is 
laid upon the student body. The student body is represented by the Two-Year 
Student Council, an organization which has rendered excellent service in the 
development of men and morale. The Two- Year Course has now passed the 
experimental stage. It seems destined to have a powerful influence on the 
agricultural interests of this Commonwealth.

Ilisitorp of tfje Cla^s^ of 1921 

On September 27, 1919, the Two- Year Class of 1921, the f rst class to com- 
plete a full Two-Year Course at Massachusetts Agricultural College, made its 
appearance upon this campus. The class numbered one hundred and ninety- 
six members, of whom eighty-six were ex-service men, sent here by the Federal 
Board for Vocational Education, and eight were women students, commonly 
called "Co-eds." We far outnumbered the senior class, and as they had no rules 
with which to govern us, we proceeded to govern ourselves as best we could 
until some satisfactory form of student government should be established. 

As the first large class of its kind, we found ourselves confronted with 
numerous obstacles and difficult problems in which there were no precedents to 
guide us. We very naturally felt that our actions and decisions would have a 
lasting influence that would be felt by future classes, and, with that in mind, 
we organized the class and elected officers in order that we might better direct 
our progress toward the firmer establishment of the Two- Year Course. The 
first permanent class officers, who were elected in December, and guided us so 
ably, were; Gordon P. Loomer, President; Mary E. Bruce, Vice-President; 
Zorayda K. Owens, Secretary; Stevens F. Dole, Treasurer. 

During the fall of 1919 a football team was organized, and, although some 
difficulty was experienced in obtaining games, a fine start was made, with pros- 
pects of a brilliant future. In the winter term a basketball team was developed, 
but did not have a very successful season if scores alone are considered, due 
largely to the raw material with which the coach had to work. 

On November 15, 1919, a temporary Student Council, appointed by Presi- 
dent Butterfield, held its first meeting. Members of 1921 have served faithfully 
on the permanent organization which grew out of this meeting, and largely 
through their efforts the Council has developed into a stable and influential gov- 
erning body. We feel that the first year of our course was a profitable one, 
and that when we left in March, we left a record of accomplishment behind us. 

We returned to the campus in September, 1920, after an absence of six 
months, somewhat depleted in numbers, and found a Junior Two- Year Class, 
fully as large as ourselves, waiting for us to train it in the way it should go. In 
this regard, we are well satisfied with our efforts, and although a little cold water 
was required to dampen the superfluous ardor of certain Freshmen, we certainly 


are proud of our Junior Class, which we are depending upon to take up our work 
where we lay it down. Mr. Loomer, our president, did not return to college, 
and it is well to mention here the work of Miss Mary Bruce, our vice-president, 
who served so ably in his stead during the first term of the current year. At 
the January meeting, new class officers, as follows, were elected: President, 
Carl E. Libby; vice-president, Gordon E. Steele; secretary, Norman F. Mac- 
Leod; treasurer, Stevens F. Dole; sergeant-at-arms, Walter R. Trafton. 

Feeling that we wanted something worth while at Commencement, when we 
leave Massachusetts Agricultural College, after two happy years, to enter our 
life work, a committee was chosen, the results of whose endeavors are published 
elsewhere in this volume. In taking this step we feel that we are establishing a 
precedent to be adopted by future classes, and to which we can look back with 
justifiable pride. 

The Two- Year Class of 1921 has to the best of its ability upheld and fos- 
tered the traditions of this college. It entered here not knowing what problems 
and difficulties might confront it. It leaves here with a clean record, one 
which is a credit to the college and a credit to the men and women who helped to 
make it. . .

A cheerful man, worth knowing. Prominent in col- 
lege and town activities, C. C. is well liked wherever he 
is known. If you receive a rousing slap on the back 
and some one says, "Hello, bum," 3'ou can at once tell 
it is Allen. Just at present he is making Springfield 
appreciate good dairy products. He is trying out some 
of Prof. Judkins' theories on the people of that city. 
Experiments so far have been without fatalities. Chet 
has theories of his own on successful and desirable 
farming. One is that the farmer should work union 
hours at union wages. We wish him all success and 
will be glad to work for him some day.

Coming from a whaling town, one might expect 
Roger to be a whale of a guy. But he isn't; he's not 
very big and he doesn't blow a bit. Before we knew 
Roger well, we doped him out for a deacon, but time 
has told. He has never been seen in the vicinity of 
the Adams House, but he has absent-mindedly left 
circumstantial evidence around at times. Roger is a 
model youth; he doesn't smoke, and he never misses 
chapel, even seems to enjoy the short nap he gets 
there. His one bad habit is betting, and he is a con- 
sistent loser. How he manages to keep cheerful in the 
face of his losses we don't know.

One of the hardest working girls on the campus. 
This ambitious young lady manages to keep busy from 
morning till night. We are sure that some time she 
will reap that reward which is the recompense of 
all hard work. Maude pitches right into farming 
with all her energy. She can tell you more about the 
college farm, live stock, and crops than half the men 
that work on it. She is quiet and reserved but mighty 
likable. Maude is a little girl with a big heart, an 
example to any who think they are working hard.

This tall, bespectacled youth hails from the same 
town that Alvin H. Fuller made famous, and promises 
to make it even more famous in the future. He's very 
quiet except when he gets warmed up to his subject, — 
and then ! Evidently he intends removing his residence 
from Somerville as we understand most of the farming 
land in that city is largely devoted to the raising of 
city blocks. Frank is alwaj'S in a hurry to get home 
after finals, and it is said that home possesses more 
than ordinary attractions. If the Slow and Easy 
should stop running to Boston Frank would make it 
on his bicycle.

Every one knows Barney. ■ Did you ever know any 
one with that name who wasn't popular? One letter 
is left out. It should be Blarney. The name, good 
nature, and popularity just naturally go together. 
Barney comes from Maine, Aroostook County, in fact, 
the place that made potatoes famous. He is down 
there now raising a bumper crop, we have no doubt, 
and is causing the old boys to sit up and take notice. 
Barney says there is just one precaution to be observed 
in successful potato planting, and that is not to get 
the sets in upside down.

A man of many attainments is Bal; a snappy dresser, 
a good entertainer, a conscientious student, and a 
peach of a dancer, in fact, for most anything on the 
list Bal fills the bill. He likes a good time and is strong 
for the chickens, as Mr. Banta, or most any one else, 
will vouch for. The conductors on the Holyoke line 
hold the last car a half hour three nights a week when 
Sam goes visiting. Over in Hanip they are not so 
accommodating, so Sam walks home from there. 
Bal's ambition is to supply New York City with eggs 
and broilers.

This spirited young citizen from the wilds of Spen-

here a week before he was firmly convinced that he 
had a little edge on the profs. Be it cattle or swine, 
farm management or crops, that is the topic for dis- 
cussion, this boisterous son of the soil throws a smooth 
line. Last year Ray joined the Grange in Amherst, 
and since then he has been well known in the town 
society. At present "Lawnmower" is down in Rhode 
Island raising hogs. Even if he doesn't make any 
profit, he figures he'll have the use of the hogs for six

"Rab's" supreme good nature and ready wit have 
won for him a high place in the regard of his class- 
mates. " Rab" jokes on every day of the week, every 
hour of the day, and we suggest a visit to him as the 
very best treatment for the blues. He has made quite 
a reputation as a liar. We hasten to add that this 
was not in his everyday life, but was behind the glare 
of the footlights. " Rab" is, we will have to admit, a 
most convincing talker and can make you believe al- 
most anything if he has the chance. He is going to 
try his powers on fruit trees after leaving here and we 
wish him success.

ne.xt best known at the Hadley Center town hall 
where he and "Dutch" are prone to stray of an even-

"Chub" is holding down the captaincy of the team, for 
which we hope a successful season. Once in awhile 
he goes to class, but he's majoring in baseball.

"Bozzie" is one of those likable chaps who win your 
friendship by saying nothing except when necessary 
and by always making themselves agreeable. He 
ranks high on all his class work, indicating a conscien- 
tious scholar. His future work is to be with fruit 
trees, an occupation he enjoys very much, with one 
exception. He objects very strongly to pruning a 
tree when some one above his head is scraping bark. 
Earl is a member of the Commencement Committee

Rather a quiet chap, this man Broqker, probably 
because he prefers to do things rather than talk about 
them. "Rocky" comes from the city, the one which 
claims Boston as a suburb, Ro.xbury. Some one has 
complained of the distance one has to travel in order 
to get a train in Amherst, but John maintains that 
that is nothing compared to the miles he has traveled 
hunting for an "l^" train for Dudley Street. Between

of our Commencement plans, and is a member of tl

worker for the welfare of the Two Year Course. We 
are indeed proud of Mary Bruce.

Here's the man with more excuses for going home 
over week-ends than we've ever seen. It started with 
"going to help dig potatoes, cut ensilage," etc. When 
such as these gave out, Frank worked hard to try to 
catch the mumps from Bill. At last he said he had the 
mumps, went home, and came back in time for finals. 
Wonder who she is? Frank was a good boy, but, by 
some misfortune, he began to eat with the gang over 
the hill. Instead of reforming them, they reformed him. 
He has taken up cooking under Prof. Chenoweth this

The big noise of the class of 1921. " Burkie " made 
himself heard the minute he hit town and has been 
blowing his horn ever since. Prof. Hart can testify 
quite satisfactorily as to the strength of Burke's vocal 
cords and his conversational ability. Prof, even 
rnaintains that Burke would make a good lawj'er, pro- 
vided he had arguments which were in as good condition 
as his voice. A hard worker for all that and one who 
has accomplished much during; his sojourn here. We 
surely hope, however, that his voice will never fail 
him. "Boikie" wouldn't be able to talk fast enough 
with his hands.

"Bunnie" is one of our best athletes, starring in 
football, basketball, and as a waiter in the "Hash-

for it's the fellows who sit at the table. "Bunnie" is 
none other than that foghorn you hear on Sunday when 
you are near the Unity Church. As a member of the 
Student Council he worked well for the Two Year 
Course. He is our only representative from New 
York and he doesn't live on "Toity-toid Street" either. 
"Bunnie" will make good wherever he goes, even if 
he does go into the movies.

surprise when on returning this year we found him in 
long trousers and nearly a foot taller! "Cupe" enjoys 
himself most if he can find some one to tease, and de- 
lights in making himself a nuisance. He is a smart 
kid, however, and when he grows up will make quite a 
man. He claims he is grown up now, but actions 
speak louder than words. However, we e.xpect to soon 
be able to park the baby carriage.

"Fat" leads, he is a champion bluffer. If he could get 
away with it he would be wonderful, but, alas! he 
doesn't. Howard bought a motorcycle, thinking that 
a sure way to reduce. At last reports he had reduced 
the motorcycle to junk, but he had actually increased. 
His favorite sports are fishing and cheering. He's a

with the dog, for often you may hear her say, "Moosh," 
and he does, so she will tell you. She just dotes on 
fussing with machinery, particularly anything very

hold her own with any of the best of them.

awful howl when he goes as low as that. "Chris" is 
the personification of cheerfulness, except for two days 
in the week, when he sometimes looks worried. It is 
said that the absence of so small a thing as a pink enve-

It is said that Mr. Whiting doesn't agree with him. 
Colton hails from Springfield, and actually seems will-

marvel at it. Homer missed his calling; he should 
have been a newspaper reporter or an artist; he's good 
at filling a notebooli with sketches instead of lectures. 
He has a reputation as an actor, both in school and in

full of pep despite the fact that she originally hailed

"Dan" assists Doc Lentz in keeping his classes awale 
by snoring so loudly that no one else can get a chance

A bunch of muscle, strung on a live wire, is a good 
description of "Jerry." "Jerry" never had seen a foot- 
ball or a basketball when he landed in Amherst, so natu- 
rally they attracted him. And what a player he has 
made! Besides his natural ability "Jerry" possesses that 
characteristic so essential in a good athlete, namely, 
good nature. In the class room and on the campus 
"Jerry" has never been found wanting. Always with a 
ready answer and ever willing to help out, he has made 
himself one of the most popular men in the class. A 
real man. Good luck to him!

"Louie" believes in being frank. He would sooner 
speak his mind and have it over with than to try to 
smooth a matter over. As a member of the baseball 
team, both junior and senior years, "Louie" has cer- 
tainly done his bit for the class of 1921. A remarkable 
voice has he; reminds one — well, it's about halfway 
between a croak and a chuckle, and we give him the 
benefit of the doubt as being nearer a chuckle, for that 
is more in keeping with his nature. He is always 
happy, even during finals.

"Artie" made his entrance upon this campus very 
quietly and has moved about it quietly ever since. 
However, he "gets there" just the same. When he 
speaks he says something, a valuable attribute. "Ar- 
tie" is working hard on the baseball team and has de- 
veloped into one of the team's mainstays in the bo.v. 
He is noted for knowing his own mind and is not afraid 
to give e.xpression to his convictions. "Grif" is bound 
to be successful, as he makes a practice of always doing 
his best.

Why this versatile young lady took up Agriculture 
we do not know. It is our opinion that she would 
have made an excellent movie actress. She used to 
drive a "Flivver," but of late the chariot has disap- 
peared, reason unknown. We suspect, however, that 
she tried some well-known movie stunt to which the 
long-suffering descendant of Henry I. would not sub- 
mit. As a hiker she has no peer, it being said that 
she was, in former years, a commuter from Milton 
and found that she could walk into town considerably 
faster than the elevated could convey her.

One of our quiet, earnest class-room wizards. Grant 
is always on the exemption list. He is quite a cattle 
man, too. "Ham" is right there when it comes to 
show-ring judgments. Also, he's a Guernsey man. He 
has no use for a cow that gives chalk and water, even 
if she does give a pailful of it. Down in Rowe Grant 
says everything is quiet in spite of the name, as they 
never raise one. On the stage "G. E." has displayed 
considerable hitherto latent ability.

Our handsome boy. "Hank" is always dressed up, 
his shoes are always shined, his hair is always combed. 
We sometimes wonder if "Hank" will crease his over- 
alls and polish his rubber boots when he gets down on 
the farm. He spent his boyhood raising clams down 
on Martha's Vineyard; they say the soil's just right for 
them down there. "Rus's" chief specialty is getting 
his sleep in class and then staying up all night trying 
to master what he might have got in class if he only 
would stay awake. He has rendered good service to 
the class as a member of the football, basketball, and 
baseball squads and has been very active in all social

Quite a superior looking youth is tliis young man. 
He wears an air of self-satisfaction, which is always 
accompanied by a faultlessly neat appearance. "Bill" 
is an expert at raising crops and hopes to raise very 
large crops of corn and alfalfa when he gets on to the 
farm. What! Did some one say that you can't 
raise alfalfa in Massachusetts? Well, we'll say you 
can; just take a look at "Bill's" upper lip. If "Bill" 
e\'er takes to raising crops he'll soak the seed in gaso- 
line and irrigate with ether to help it along.

This red-headed youth, who comes from back in the

modest. He never speaks unless he is spoken to, cer- 
tainly a most commendable virtue. Otherwise, "Bob" 
is perfectly normal ; he seldom places the classes of live 
stock right in Animal Judging, and agrees with the rest 
of the bunch that the last should be first and the first 
should be last. He is an expert at packing spray pumps 
so that they won't work and all in all is sure of a place 
in the sun along with the rest of his faultless classmates. 
"Bob" is thought to be rather easy going, but it is be- 
cause he doesn't make a great fuss when he accom- 
plishes a piece of work.

This lad was runner-up for first honors in the elec-

cept on the way to or from classes, we are not surprised 
that Wilder is such a shark in the class room. Some- 
times "we guys," who never crack a book, almost envy 
him. Home is near for Wilder until the mud season 
comes, and he misses a car. He can tell you the exact

"Pat" must have been issued a pass on the North-

isn't in class, and sometimes when he's supposed to be 
there, he is "absent, but accounted for," on the front 
line at Smith. "Pat" enjoys raising flowers, at least 
enough to supply his personal needs. At present Mr. 
Hayden is gardening near Boston, where we are sure 
his quiet, pleasant nature will stand him in good stead.

A rather wild but wholly earnest youth landed at 
M. A. C. in September, 1919. By hard work on the 
part of Mr. Holden, "Heinie" acquired a conception 
of what a good animal really looks like, so that when 
in March he returned to the farm, Molly, the brindled 
cow, and Dan and Jim, the team, worked themselves 
to shadows trying to meet the new standard. At any 
time now 'Ban" will show you pictures of his county 
fair blue winners. It is rumored that "Hylife" will 
graduate despite the time he gives to his pin-boy duties 
and seeing the country from a bicycle.

We'll bet old Punkinville steps around and opens its

for a spell. No wonder Henry is getting lazy with 
this young whirlwind to do all his work for him. Per- 
ley does make a fine janitor; he has missed his calling. 
"Poiley" is a good student, a hard worker for the class, 
ever ready to do anything he can, and seems always to 
retain his pleasant nature, cheery smile, and request 
for a cigarette.

"down in the dumps." He is a hard worker, when he 
works, a good student, and a heavj' sleeper. An elec-

tends to soon electrify the agricultural world with 
some remarkable, noteworthy discovery. According 
to reports, "Bob" is quite a consistent letter writer.

When this young harum-scarum was first dropped 
off at Williamstown, the natives stopped and stared in 
amazement. As the story goes they continue to stare 
whenever "Oak" appears upon the scene, for they 
never know when and what to e.\pect next. To be the 
proud owner of a herd of prize-winning (Uiernseys is 
his fondest ambition, and whenever one speaks of those 
noted bossies from the Channel Islands, "Oak's" ears 
can always be seen to ]iv\ck up. A man of strong mind

Many are they who have gone away chuckling, feeling 
overjoyed at putting one over on "Pete," only to come, 
in tli'e due course of time, to the realization that the 
chuckle had come a bit too soon. Raynham is going 
to see some good stock when "Pete" returns to his

loses sight of the Shropshires or Holsteins. "Mat," 
by the way, lugged off first prize in the recent student

having a perfect attendance at Adams Hall. A modest 
young man is "Kim," but when it comes to entertain-

fine example of a hard working, prosperous fruit and

Not satisfied with just attending church regularly, 
Henry had to move right down an.ongst them, so he 
could go more often. The "General's" future plans 
are unknown to us, — and to him.' He will never make 
a live stock breeder, for it's impossible to get him to 
accept the theory of evolution. Any one who believes 
in that comes prettj' close to being an atheist, in Henry's 
opinion. There is one crop that Henry will always be 
able to raise, with a high crop index, too. That is a 
crop of questions. He may tale to raising Herefords 
for their fine hams.

didates was issued, "Helen" was one of the first to 
report. For two seasons he helped to checlc the driv- 
ing, smashing onslaughts of the first team's backs. 
"Helen" is really quite clever when it comes to playing 
with a hammer and saw, while the purr of a gasoline 
motor is music to his ears. "Helen" may never be a

him on the tennis court. Harold is another of our

" — And it don't feel very darn good now, either." 
This is an echo of "Red's" story of how he got hurt

by somebody's else vehicle. "Red" wasn't satisfied 
with a bicycle. He has just secured a motorcycle. 
Not having received his license yet, he practices riding 
it around on rainy days when the police department 
is at home. The force has lost one of his rubbers 
and can't find a mate among the old ones. "Red"

He makes an ideal man because there is no place large 
enough for a hen to go through that will not accommo-

It requires as much red tape to get an interview with

unless you arrive before breakfast or after 10:30 P. M. 
We don't know when he sleeps, for he accomplishes an 
enormous amount of work. "Mac" has done a great 
deal for 1921. A dark horse our first year, he was un- 
discovered until this year, when his talents came to 
light. His greatest service has been the making of

Some of us "pepless deadheads" would profit by 
obser\'ing "Pop." He has as much class spirit as any 
one could ask for. Since his arrival in our midst his 
enthusiasm has never waned. Oood natured, cheerful, 
willing, he is ready to give you sound advice, or sub- 
stantial backing, be it class meeting or pond party, 
"loop's" ability to adapt himself has made him a great 
favorite in the class.

Some twenty-two years ago this belligerent lad 
arrived in the Berkshire hills. He started howling at 
once and has been howling ever since. It's so long 
ago since he began that he has forgotten what he's 
howling for, so now it's just habit. He earned his 
title of "Skipper" swabbing decks for Uncle Sam. We 
wonder they didn't use his hair for a brush. Howard 
plans to spend his life rising in the wee small, hours to 
milk and feed the cows. They will probablybe Black 
and White.

This young man's bountiful supply of alibis, every 
one reasonable, would seem to- indicate a successful 
future. His work with poultry is of interest to his 
classmates. We have seen very little of "Tom" this year, 
but wish we could have known him better as he gives 
evidence of being a cheerful and entertaining compan- 
ion. He is an enthusiastic dancer. Aside from this, 
he may often be seen driving a "Flivver" madly about 
town. His shrewdness and Yankee business traits sig- 
nify accumulation of fortune.

And he has the goods to back it up, if he is interested 
enough to deliver the goods. He was elected first vice- 
president and did a good share of the work in organiz- 
ing the class. His work in basketball is known to 
and applauded by all who watched him. His pep won 
him the place of cheer leader. Life's a game of give 
and take with "Dud." He takes what comes with 
nonchalance and watches the world play with an air 
of easy indifference. We can't help liking him though 
He always has the same cheerful, serene smile for every-

Walter was chosen first president of his class and in 
this capacity- ser\-ed us well, in the matter of organiza- 
tion. He has since retained his interest in class affairs, 
and has been an enthusiastic supporter of all projects 
adopted by the class. If his work in his studies is of 
the same caliber as for his class Walter will have found 
much profit in his two years with us. He may be 
small, as his nickname "Pewee" indicates, but his ideas 
are right and his start is good.

••Ray" belongs to our more serious group of students. 
Vet he is never too busy, nor too engrossed in his 
thoughts to always pass a pleasant word of greeting 
and a friendly smile. His standing among his fellow 
classmates may be easily seen from the fact that he is 
a member of Student Council and as such has done 
much for us through serious thought and good judg- 
ment. His popularity brought upon him the election 
of historian and we could wish for no better repre-

"Sid" is an easy-going sort of person, with a some- 
times slightly worried look about his eyes; but he's 
certainly shown pep as stage manager of our Com- 
mencement Show. He has been a loyal supporter of 
class affairs and does not hesitate to give his opinion 
upon occasion. From all appearances dancing is his 
favorite pastime, although all class activities receive 
a share of his attention.

"Bill" is a big fellow — oh, somewhere around 200 
pounds. No wonder he can play football. However, 
it is not only physically that he is large, but his good 
sense and broadmindedness have placed him on Student 
Council. He is a hard worker, mentally and physic- 
ally. When there is work to be done "Bill" "sails in" 
without making further conversation. He has made 
quite a reputation packing fruit in class. We have no 
doubt that he will continue making an enviable record 
for himself when he goes out.

Back in the woods somewhere between here and the 
Atlantic Ocean lies a little burg called Brimfield. 
From out of this wilderness in the fall of 1919 there 
appeared a youth in overalls and a last year's straw 
hat. "Kid" was a typical farmer when he arrived here, 
but has improved to some extent since. He was a 
couple of days late getting here and he has been late 
ever since. If the office counted all his half cuts he'd 
still have another year to go before he finished college. 
"Kid" likes to farm and the harder the job the better 
he likes it.

A man of few words and these few seldom spoken, 
we know but little of Earle Spring though he has been 
with us since we started in 1919. One habit of his we 
have learned well. It's so hard for him to get to class 
on time, but he does arrive eventually and keeps 
awake a good part of the time. May he have a life of 
peace and quiet.

After observing the string of activities after "Gor- 
die's" name you probably wonder when he finds time 
to attend college. So do we. If every one liked to be 
as busy as "Gordie" they would have to invent a lot 
more activities in order to keep every one happy. 
There is no need to comment on the work he has done 
for the class, it speaks for itself, and we are grateful to 
him for it.

"Art" is a cheerful sort of person if everything is 
going smoothly, but how he does fret at a hitch! He 
has some pretty good ideas about remodeling the uni- 
verse and has made various attempts at a start. All he 
needs is time. However, he has done good work for 
the class and his management of the class play is com- 
mendable, and we are hoping his efforts have not seri- 
ously affected his nerves.

Coming from as famous a little town as Deerfield, 
it's not surprising that there should be something dis- 
tinguished about "Doc." He packs more muscle in 
that little frame of his than seems possible, and when 
he sticks out his chest, well, you just can't help admir- 
ing him. Apparently some one else must have admired 
him somewhat, too, because "Doc" got married over 
a year ago and is the proud possessor of our first class 
baby. He is a living proof of the statement that good 
things often come done up in little packages.

Let us introduce to you the man with the biggest 
heart and the kindest nature in the class. What "Traf" 
won't do for any one certainly is not worth doing. He 
never kicks, but just puts his shoulder to the wheel and 
pushes, no matter how disagreeable the task. "Traf" 
introduced "Cozy Corner" candies on to the campus 
last fall and has been depriving us of our spare change 
ever since. He says if he didn't like candy so well 
himself he'd make a fortune, but so far he has eaten 
lip all the profits. His record in baseball is a wonder 
and all the class looks to Walter for grand home runs 
when he gets started on his job.

One of the learned men of the class. "Vart" knows 
more about national and international affairs than 
most any other ten men. His good nature has made 
him very popular, and one always feels safe in starting 
an argument with him because he doesn't know how 
to get mad. "Justice" says we ought to take what the 
profs, say with a grain of salt, because they are only 
average men after all. That's good philosophy out- 
side the class room, but we find it doesn't work in exam-

Helen came to us through'^the influence of a Boys' 
and Girls' Canning Club and;we're glad she happened 
this way. Always quiet and possessed of a reserved 
manner she remained in her shell for some time, but a 
masquerade revealed rather than disguised her and 
she has since been increasingly popular among her class- 
mates. Her latent fun and quiet good humor have 
made her a favorite, but her hypersusceptibility to 
teasing often makes her a victim to circumstance and 
"others." Her conscientiousness is sometimes her un- 
doing, but she is dependable and depended upon "many 
a time and oft."

The only time this gentleman has awakened since 
he arrived in Amherst was when he figured in the col- 
lision of the co-ed and bicycle. His best sleeps are in 
vegetable gardening laboratory when the class is busy. 
However, he is a quiet sleeper. Once a prof, said, "If 
you must sleep, do so quietly, like Warner." It has 
always been a problem to us how Harry gets to the 
hash-house on time to wipe dishes. "Nellie" will 
never make a farmer until farming is done by wireless, 
the operator pushing a button from the veranda for 
each piece of work.

to get him to display his prowess as a warbler.

That desperate-looking character with the wide

fob who moves about in our midst is not a Western 
bandit or desperado. That is "A!" Watson. When 
he first arrived we didn't know whether to smile or 
run. Now we laugh. "Doc" proves to us that looks 
are deceiving. He is a good-natured, big-hearted pal, 
a favorite with every one. June sixth will be a red- 
letter day for Rhode Island fruit growers, for on that 
day "Al" completes his pomology course at Aggie. 
We hope the trees are headed low so "Al" can pick 
from the ground.

This handsome lad uses his good appearance to ad-

carries on. If he had his chariot up here all the year 
'round there wouldn't be much class work done by 
"Lonnie." He is another of our classmates with a 
nature as unruffled as a mud puddle. We never saw 
him out of sorts with the world. On that account 
alone he should get along; but he is also energetic, con- 
scientious, and willing. Harold is going to follow in 
his father's footsteps, and turn to that famous apple'

path until the first thing they know they are reacting 
the same way. "Ted" can get into more mischief and 
enjoy himself at other people's expense than a six-year- 
old youngster. We lost "Ted's" company recently. 
He went to California, via Illinois, to try his hand at 
citrus fruits. We expect some day soon to receive a 
lemon from him. We are sorry to lose him, but know 
that his good-hearted, happy-go-lucky, yet consci- 
entious self will be a success.

Alice has started a craze for fortune telling. She

Her talent, however, is not confined to this one line. 
Her work with photographs and paintings has won 
her much renown at Aggie. She is a conscientious 
worker and an interested one, in her studies and in her 
other activities. She participates in all sports possible 
and has a love for woods which leads her on many a

us to believe she will meet with success in whatever 
work she chooses.

Thoroughly harmless to look at, perfectly gentle to

two years has been one of our mainstays in the back- 
field. Not only in athletics does he excel. A perfect 
attendance at two other colleges is his. The way we 
look at it he must have some constitution, for along 
with all his accomplishments, for two whole years he 
has not only eaten but worked at the "hash-house." 
"Wig" has been a loyal supporter of class and college. 
To get along most rapidly in his chosen line he must 
change in only one respect. He can ask a surprising 
number of foolish questions.

When we arrived on this campus in September, nineteen hundred and 
twenty, total strangers to everything and everybody here, we only began to see 
our way when the Student Council took us in hand, guiding us in our actions, 
presiding at our first meeting for organization, and furnishing the familiar skull 
cap which turned out to be a very important factor in helping us to know each 
other and get together to organize. 

The officers we elected at the first meeting were: President, W.J. Harrington; 
vice-president, M.S.Brown; secretary, MissE. Russell; treasurer, MissK. Powell. 

Our constitution states that new officers be elected at the end of the first 
term. The only change in the list was for secretary. Miss Davenport. 

TheSocialCommittee,with D.M.White as chairman, became promptly active, 
and made it possible for the class and its guests to enjoy some very good times. 

During the fall term four of our members, guilty of infractions of rules, 
were tried before the Student Council and sentenced. They were given punish- 
ment on an old-fashioned ducking stool in the College Pond. 

The Glee Club, under J. E. Worthley's direction, struggled hard to get a 
good foundation for next year. No concerts were given, but prospects for the 
future are encouraging. 

A Dramatic Club became rapidly active under the direction of President 
Harrington and with Professor Patterson as coach. A fine act was staged at the 
Aggie Revue. An attempt to present "The Dictator" was unsuccessful before 
the close of school, but this play will be given on our return to college next fall. 

Our first year has been a busy one, just filled with new experiences. The 
class has been confronted with many difficulties and has found its way out satis- 
factorily in every case. We look forward to leaving a fine record behind us when 
we graduate in 1922. 

We should like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks for 
the Kind Word and the Helping Hand extended to us by the Class of 1921 and 
its members individually and collectively. May they who are going from us to 
start out on the journey of life feel that they have faithful friends in the Two- 
Year Class of 1922 at Massachusetts Agricultural College.

Cfje ^Jort Course ^tubent Council 

On November 5, 1919, a temporary Short Course Student Council, appointed 
by President Butterfield, held its first meeting. Through the efforts of this tem- 
porary body a constitution was drawn up and a foundation laid on which the 
first permanent Council elected some weeks later could build. The purpose of 
the Council is to guard and foster the traditions and customs of this college 
among all Short Course students, and to consider all matters relating to the 
action and disciplining of Short Course students. 

The membership in the Council is made up of six men from the Senior Two- 
Year class, four men from the Freshman class, one man from the Vocational 
Poultry Course, one man from the Rural Engineering Course, and one delegate- 

The work of the Council has been very varied, but in all matters which have 
come before it, it has acted wisely and justly. Among the many duties which 
the Council has it seems worth while to mention the following: 

It conducts at frequent intervals joint mass meetings of both classes for the 
consideration of any matters which are common to the interests of both classes. 

Early in its career the Council interested itself in the development and in 
the recognition of the Two-Year Athletic teams. A glance at the records of the 
Two-Year teams for the current year shows the results of its endeavors along 
this line. 

The Council has been called upon to act in several cases regarding the action 
and discipline of certain individuals and has always acted with the best of judg- 

It is continually working in co-operation with the faculty for improvements 
in the courses of study. 

These are but a few of the many duties of the Council, which it always 
meets with open mind and willing spirit. The Short Course Student Council 
has lived up to the purpose for which it was formed and has proved itself to be a 
valuable asset to the Course and to the college.

Social ^ctibitp 

Clagsi of 1921 

The Social Committee of the class has been active during the past year and 
a half and several successful social functions have been held. Although the class 
as a whole has not held many distinctly class functions, different clubs and social 
groups have held many enjoyable events which have done much to develop the 
social life of the course. 

The first social event was a dance held in the Drill Hall and attended by 
nearly every one in the class. Director and Mrs. Phelan were present to help 
us enjoy a very pleasant evening. This affair served to make the students 
acquainted with each other and thus helped lay the basis for the Spirit of the Class. 

As our college is situated in the historic valley of the Connecticut River, 
and the hills and towns abound in lore of Indian and early Colonial days, the 
hope of an opportunity to visit these places became an actuality. On fair days 
many groups of class members could be seen hiking over the countryside in 
"stag parties," or the more fortunate in company with "co-eds," and with those 
large packs familiar to all who like to tramp, — the ever popular hot dogs and 
rolls. Many a pleasant day has been spent and many firm friendships formed 
about a campfire in' the evening. 

On Columbus Day twenty-four students tried their luck on the Holyoke 
Range. Rain set in before the top was achieved, but it failed to dampen the 
waterproof ardor of the hikers. It took quite a while to convince a constable of a 
near-by town that they were only harmless students out for a lark, before he finally 
believed. Some real cider at the old Hadley Mill on the way home helped keep up 
spirits, and a memory of a great time is retained by those who made the trip. 

The women students have from time to time seemed possessed with a keen 
desire to cultivate the acquaintance of several of the most interesting places 
near by, and have very kindly invited different members of the class as guests 
on some of their very pleasant "bacon bats" and "wieney roasts." In spite of 
many handicaps they still remain loyal boosters of the sport and are ever ready 
to participate in a real hike. Our co-eds are indeed good sports. 

The year ending in March, just as we were beginning to know each other 
well, prevented our having any more jolly times until September. However, 
all felt that when college opened again they would proceed to make more of the 
pleasant social side of college life than they had this first year. 

A reception to the entering Freshmen of the Two-Year Course was held in 
the Drill Hall shortly after our second year of college began. Practically every 
one from both classes was present. The early evening was devoted to forming 
acquaintances with the new men and women, and helping them to feel at home. 
Dancing followed. Director and Mrs. Phelan, Professor and Mrs. Strahan, 
and Mr. and Mrs. Viets were our patrons and patronesses. The hall was prettily 
decorated with autumn colors, with pumpkins, cornstalks, leaves, and even the 
old-time cider barrel where Steve Dole and Gordon Steele served refreshments. 
When the guests had departed, Steve and Gordon asked Russell to help carry the re- 


maining refreshments home. They were very nearly successful. This very success- 
ful and pleasant function paved the way for other pleasant interclass affairs. 

After a long wait for the busy Drill Hall, the Social Committee gave us a 
dance of unusual brilliancy. The hall was decorated in our class colors, yellow 
and blue, in a very artistic arrangement. The Freshman class was again our 
guest. We were fortunate in securing the presence of Mr. and Mrs. Viets, Miss 
Skinner, and Mrs. Bacharach as chaperons. Very fine music, a pleasing collation 
of ice cream and cake, and a congenial gathering insured all a very happy evening. 

We now look forward with a great deal of expectation to a very wonderful 
Commencement Prom. This will be the first Two-Year Commencement Prom 
held on this campus and we want it to be an unqualified success. A very capa- 
ble and efificient committee in charge enjoins us to live in hopes, to look fprward 
to "The Event" of our two happy years at Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

Class of 1922 

The first appearance of the Freshman class in social activities at M. A. C. 
was in their attendance at the reception tendered them by the Class of 1921. 
This affair was very valuable to us in forming helpful friendships among the men 
who have been over the road we must travel. Practically every Freshman 
attended this function and was rewarded with a very pleasant evening. 

On Saturday, October thirty-first, the Freshmen held their first dance of 
the year in the form of an informal Hallowe'en party in the Drill Hall. Guests 
of the evening were Director and Mrs. Phelan, Mr. Tirrell, and Mr. Grayson. 
The party was a great success. Prizes were awarded for the prettiest costumes, 
many of which were very original and unique. Games were provided for those 
who were not dancing. A good orchestra provided lively music for the dancers. 
Appropriate Hallowe'en decorations lent a finishing touch to the whole affair. 

At the Social Union rooms on December eighteenth the class held an infor- 
mal party. Miss Skinner and Mrs. Bacharach were the guests of the evening. 
In the hall, prettily decorated with evergreen, were held dancing and games, 
interspersed with corn popping and toasting of marshmallows. 

A Welcome party to the entering ten-weeks students was held Saturday, 
January ninth, in Social Union rooms, with Miss Skinner and Mrs. Bacharach 
as guests of the evening. Marshmallows were toasted before the open fire and 
games and dancing helped all present to spend a very enjoyable evening. 

The class bid farewell to the Senior class on Sai;urday, March nineteenth, 
before leaving for the summer's work. The Farewell Party was in the form of 
a masquerade at the Drill Hall. Prettily decorated with palms and crepe paper, 
the hall presented a pleasing appearance. Guests of the evening were Director 
and Mrs. Phelan, Professor and Mrs. Gunness, Mr. and Mrs. Banta, Professor 
and Mrs. Denman, Mr. and Mrs. Viets, and Professor and Mrs. Patterson. 
Judges awarded prizes after much meditation for the prettiest, most complete, 
and original costumes. There were many fine costumes. A sleight-of-hand 
entertainment was presented by Mr. W. S. Smith during intermission. Every 
one enjoyed a very pleasant evening. Much favorable comment was heard 
from the Seniors to whom our party was tendered. 


^fje (§(ee Clulj 

During the early part of the year, Director Phelan suggested that the 
classes develop the social side of college life to a great extent, not to develop 
only the intellectual mind, but to broaden out and get in touch with our fellow 
students. The committee on music. Dill, Taylor, and Dole of the Seniors, and 
Woodworth, Delano, and Worthley of the Freshmen, decided that organization 
of a glee club would be of real benefit. Accordingly they set about getting men 
interested, and selecting music, toward the cost of which the students contributed 

Early in January a large group of men had become interested and appeared 
at the practice sings. Rehearsals were held regularly every Wednesday in Room 
114, Stockbridge Hall. No concerts were planned for this year on account of 
the late start made, but it is hoped that next year at least one outside concert 
will be given. A professional coach will be obtained in the future, and the work 
will thus be made much more effective and interesting. Director Phelan and 
Professor French have rendered valuable assistance and advice to the committee 
in charge of the club. The members of the club have worked together faith- 
fully to make it a success. Their effort has not been in vain. An early start 
and a successful season is promised for next year.

Among the members of the Class of 1922 there are many with dramatic 
talent who are vitally interested. At the November meeting the question was 
brought up for definite class action. A committee comprised of Nicholas P. Har- 
rison, Stanley F. Blish, and Elizabeth Russell was chosen to investigate the ques- 
tion and organize a Dramatic Club. 

With the "Aggie Revue" about a month distant, the committee secured 
Professor Patterson as coach and selected a one-act play for presentation. The 
play chosen was a humorous sketch in Irish dialect entitled "Marriages are Made 
in Heaven — and Elsewhere." The cast settled down to serious work and soon 
had the play in shape for presentation. On the night of presentation at the 
"Revue" the members of the Two-Year Course had the satisfaction of seeing as 
splendid a performance of their program as any one could ask for. The little 
production was a credit to cast, coach, and course. Those who participated 
were Stanley Blish, Katherine Powell, Elizabeth Russell, and Fred Margreve. 

In January the problem of organizing a permanent Dramatic Club was 
undertaken. Professor Patterson was secured as coach, and presided at the 
first meeting which was held at Draper Hall. At this meeting the following 
officers were elected: Nicholas P. Harrison, president; Stanley F. Blish, vice- 
president; Miss Elizabeth Russell, secretary. 

The Club became immediately active. A three-act play entitled "The 
Dictator" was selected for presentation. Each rehearsal indicated progress, 
the cast settlingdown at once to earnest endeavor. It was impossible to present 
this production before placement work in March. The Club will resume its 
activities and furnish a splendid entertainment to an appreciative audience upon 
the return to college this fall.

Not the least important of the organizations within the Two-Year Course 
are the' clubs, which are at present four in number. As the course has been 
developed the clubs have been formed as a natural outgrowth of that develop- 

These organizations should and do play an important part in the life of the 
student body. It has been truly said that fifty per cent of a man's education 
while in college consists in the friendships which he makes and the benefits 
which he derives from those friendships. The club offers an opportunity of 
close association and acquaintance not to be found in the casual meetings in the 
class room and on the campus, and for this reason the club occupies a place of 
high importance in the life of the college. It offers to the members a chance to 
discuss freely and frankly their own individual problems. It enables every man 
to meet every other man on an equal plane and to learn the true nature of the 
individuals who are his fellow members. In short, it is in the club that a man 
finds the true expression of what college really means and is. 

The clubs stand for the promotion of the interests of the course and of the 
college. They make it a policy to stand aside when it is found the college and 
club activities tend to conflict. This is as it should be and as we hope it always 
will be. It is possible to develop social activities to a larger degree in the club 
than in the course as a whole, and men must have some social activities or they 
will become as mere machines. It is our hope that these clubs will continue to 
prosper and will live up to the high purposes for which they were formed.

i:tt)o=iear ^tfjletics; 

Two-Year students at Massachusetts Agricultural College are not eligible 
to play on M. A. C. varsity teams. An athletic department for the course was 
therefore organized, and a team representing the course in three major sports, 
football, basketball, and baseball, plays a schedule of outside games. 

"Em" Grayson, a graduate of M. A. C, and a star athlete who played end 
on one of Aggie's best teams, was appointed coach, so we were indeed fortunate 
in that respect. Coach Grayson has turned out some very good products from 
the raw material available. The teams have been a credit to the course. Two- 
Year athletics has been given a good start; a valuable precedent has been estab- 

jFootfaall, 1919 

The response to the call for candidates for the team was answered by a 
large squad of eager but mostly inexperienced men. It was indeed a difficult 
task for the coach to develop a team from a squad of such varied experience. 
However, with the spirit and pep that has ever been shown by the Two-Year 
students, and under the direction of the athletic department, the most difficult 
problems were soon cleared away. 

It was rather late in the season to begin to schedule games for the current fall, 
but the newly elected managers succeeded in arranging a schedule of four games. 

Professor Hicks, in charge of athletics, ordered complete outfits for the 
team, and they arrived in plenty of time to be christened in our first game. 

Coach Grayson had been working industriously with the squad and had 
managed somehow to select two teams from the "would-be's" who had been 
out every day showing him how the game should not be played. A few of the 
men had previously played, either on high school teams or elsewhere. With 
"Em's" coaching, their assistance, and the eternal practice, a team began to 
round into shape. 

After a short two weeks of practice the first game with Williston Academy 
was played. As Captain Pickard says, "It sure was some game!" We were 
soft, green, and with insufficient practice. They really did have a powerful 
team that season. They won! 

Then we played Springfield College 2ds and they won. Our next game was 
with varsity "C" team when we put over our first victory. We duplicated with 
Rosary High in the final game of the year. The team continued to practice, 
however, and gave Coach Gore's varsity team some good practice scrimmaging 
for their final games. 

All in all it was a profitable season. Some valuable experience had been 
gained, a nucleus for the 1920 team was developed, and the activity of the team 
helped considerably in imbibing spirit into the new Two-Year Course.

Jfootball, 1920 

It certainly was a great team! Spirit and pep! Every one had the spirit 
of "Let's go!" and there were four and five teams out daily, all working to make 
the Two-Year varsity team. Coach Grayson certainly had his hands full to 
keep them all busy alone. Twenty men from the 1919 season reported. The 
rest were recruits, most of them raw. 

The season looked promising. Six games had been scheduled with the 
strongest "prep" school and college second teams in the section. "Pick" was 
again elected captain, and under his leadership and "Em's" coaching the team 
soon began to get into swing. 

The season's first game was unavoidably cancelled and that left us with the 
Springfield game on hand without any previous practice games. Nearly the 
entire student body journeyed to Springfield for that game, and the team put 
up a game fight but lost, 21 to 7. Much, yea, very much experience was gained 
in that game. The following Saturday the team went to Connecticut to play 
Suffield Academy. It was a wonderful game, a "regular heart-breaker," for 
with fourteen more first downs than our opponents we lost. The team was 
swinging into its stride, however, and although the next game, with Gushing 
Academy, was supposedly our hardest game, the team literally walked away 
with it. It was "Let's go!" every minute and every fnan on the team fought 
e\'ery second of play. The next game, with Connecticut Aggie 2ds, was played 
on about the coldest day of the year. Despite the cold raw wind which swept 
the field, almost every Two-Year student was out there cheering the team on to 
the last minute of a 53 to victory. 

Truly a successful season, not only in games won, but in the wonderful 
spirit shown by all. It was always M. A. C. first, as was shown by the willing- 
ness to help out Coach Gore's varsity teams with practice games once or twice 
each week.

^gasikettjall, 1920 

Our first basketball team was started in 1920, and although there were not 
quite the difficulties encountered as with the first football team, it was not all 
smooth sailing. The question of scheduling games was a difficult proposition, 
the same trouble being encountered as with our first football team, — the Two- 
Year Course and its teams were unknown in athletic circles. The manager 
finally arranged a schedule of ten games. 

Coach Grayson had a difficult proposition on his hands to develop a team 
from the material available. Repeated calls were made for candidates, but 
there were only a few who had played before. The team worked hard, and with 
"Em's" coaching and the daily plugging it improved rapidly. There were two 
teams, a varsity and a class team. This allowed a greater number to play .and 
provided competition. The team was given excellent support by the student 
body and at both varsity and class games great enthusiasm was shown. 

Not a very large per cent of the scheduled games were won, nevertheless 
the season cannot be called anything but successful for it stimulated the already 
fine spirit of the course and laid the foundation for a splendid team for the 1921

?Pa£(feetWl, 1921 

The basketball season of 1921 produced a Two-Year team successful in 
every true sense of the word. It was successful in the large number of games 
won, successful in that it had that true Aggie spirit, that quality which is essential 
to a real team, sportsmanlike playing, earnest effort, and the determination to 
play its best the entire game. 

There was hearty response to the first call for candidates. Practically all 
of those who played in 1919 responded, besides a number of new men, and mem- 
bers of the Freshman class. With the services of Coach Grayson and the large 
squad out, the season looked very bright to those who watched the practice 
games. With the start of practice, "Bunny" Burnett was unanimously re elected 

Practice started off enthusiastically, the only handicap being in the large 
squad out. Two teams, a varsity and a second team, were soon picked and lively 
practice games took place daily. There was strong opposition for every posi- 
tion and every one was given a chance to make good. After a period of hard 
daily practice a very promising team was developed under the efficient direction 
of our coach. 

The season started off with a "bang," the first game being a win over Clark 
School with a good score. The next three games were also wins for our Two- 
Year team. The first upset came in the game with Suffield Academy, but we 
shall always claim that if a return game had been played the score would have 
been reversed. The next two games resulted in victories for our team. These 
were followed by a defeat at the hands of Deerfield Academy on their court. 
However, this score was evened up later in the season when our boys succeeded 
in vanquishing the Academy in the final game of the year. The team finished 
its brilliant season with five straight wins, making the total of eleven victories 
and two defeats. 

The support given both the class team and the varsity team by the members 
of the student body was no small factor in spurring the team on to its best effort. 
The spirit of the team was excellent at all times. As in the case of the develop- 
ment of every one of our fine athletic teams no small credit is due Coach "Em" 
Grayson for his fine spirit and painstaking interest in the welfare and success of 
our teams.

Pageball, 1920 

The first baseball team to represent the Two-Year Course at Massachusetts 
Agricultural College was organized in the spring of 1920. It was composed 
principally of Federal Board students who were not out on placement training. 
There were among the players three men from the first graduating class of the 

"Em" Grayson, our competent coach of Two-Year athletics, took the squad 
in hand in preparation for a successful season. Although a late start was made, 
the manager was able to secure a schedule of seven games besides several practice 
games. It was not long after the squad settled down to serious effort that a 
promising team began to develop. 

The first game, with Williston Academy, resulted in a rather decisive defeat 
for the team. However, that defeat was such a lesson to them that they never 
let another team catch them napping the entire season. As a result, the season 
ended with a record of one defeat and six victories for the Two-Year team. 

Although the team had few "rooters" due to the fact that the class of 1921 
was then out on farm placement for the summer, the same determination of 
purpose and fine spirit was shown by this team as has been shown by every Two- 
Year team developed under Coach Grayson at M. A. C.

Pagetjall, 1921 

Practice for the 1921 baseball season was started indoors immediately on 
the close of the basketball season. There were at least a dozen battery men out 
daily and the smack of ball and glove could be heard In the Drill Hall at any 
time of the day. Enthusiasm ran high and everything was indicative of a very 
successful season. 

Fourteen games had been scheduled and a hard but promising year was 
looked forward to by the team. The early spring allowed the squad to be soon 
out on the diamond, with an occasional "skull practice" of an evening "in the 
Drill Hall. The team had been doing very well in practices and showed its 
strength by winning handily in its first game with Amherst High. 

In baseball, possibly more often than anywhere else, the unexpected will 
happen. It certainly happened in the second game of the season, when, in a 
very weird game with Holyoke High, the Two-Year team was defeated, although 
in an attempt to redeem themselves they scored seven runs in the ninth. 

Perhaps this upset was a good thing for the boys, for it seemed to put new 
life and purpose into the squad, and with much "pep" and' playing excellent 
ball they won the next six games against the strongest academy teams in Western 
Massachusetts, until the second time they met defeat on the sand-lot diamond 
of the unbeaten Rosary High of Holyoke. 

The team came promptly back into its stride and won the remaining five 
games of the schedule, the most notable of these being the games with Spring- 
field College 2ds, Rosary High, and Deerfield Academy. 

The victory over Deerfield at Commencement was a fitting climax to a 
gloriously successful season. The Two- Year baseball team of 1921 was a team 
of which to be proud. It played excellent sportsmanlike baseball with a spirit 
and determination that is not often found, but which we hope will always be 
characteristic of "Aggie Two- Year" men. This great team of 1921 furnished 
an appropriate ending to the athletic career of the pioneer Two-Year class at 
Massachusetts Agricultural College.

ally all kinds of glass enclosures, from garden 
cold-frames to greenhouses that cover consider- 
ably over an acre. We tell you these things so 
you may know the scope of our experience. 

It matters not whether the house you want be 
large or small, we can give you a service and a

"It's a Gift" 

It rtally is, this art of looking cool and nifty, 
tliesc hot sianmer days. But if s easily acquired 

It' s quite likely that if you ask one of these 
spick-and-span fellows how he does it you' II 
find that he' s wearitig shirts and collars which 
we have professionally laundered — not merely 
washed and ironed. 

His linen has had the benefit of a process 
of ours which closes the pores of the fabric, 
strengthens the fibres, and protects from grit 
and grime. 

And Willi shirts and collars such as these 
you'll find it an easy matter to always look 
your best. 

fust send us your bundle and we' II gladly 
show you. Phone and our driver will call.
