In the arrangement of this year-book, the second 
of its kind, we have attempted to follow the excellent 
example set for us by the Shorthorn of 1921. It is 
our earnest hope that the next class will be able to 
do better than we have done, for by such means the 
traditions, customs and ideals of the older classes 
are perpetuated, added to and improved upon for the 
betterment of the new classes. The Two- Year 
Course is well established, but still in its infancy, and 
anything helping to lend it dignity cannot fail to 
make it more widely appreciated.

Jlisitorp of tlje l^Ujogear Coursie 

Massachusetts Slgricultural College 

In May, 1917, both houses of the legislature of the Commonwealth passed 
a resolution known as Senate No. 374, relative to the establishment of the Two- 
Year Course in practical agriculture at the Massachusetts Agricultural College. 
The resolution 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 educational 
qualifications necessary for adm.ission to any public high school of the Common- 

At a meeting of the trustees held soon afterward, it was voted to carry out 
in letter and in spirit the resolution of the Massachusetts Legislature. Accord- 
ingly, the first term of the Two-Year Course was offered in December, 1917. The 
first course of study was uniform for all students. The work of the first year 
consisted of six months' study at the college followed by six months of farm 
practice on selected farms in the state. The second year called for nine months 
of resident study. In 1921 the Two-Year Course was reorgainzed in order that 
greater opportunity be given for specialization. There are now seven major 
lines of work; animal husbandry, dairy manufactures, floriculture, horticulture, 
pomology, poultry and vegetable gardening. 

The organization of short courses in agricultural colleges is not a new de- 
parture in the service these institutions are rendering in the several states. 
Thirty-six of the forty-eight agricultural colleges offer one or two year short 
courses. Among these colleges are numbered some of the most powerful agricul- 
tural institutions. That the establishment of the Two-Year Course met a 
real demand is shown by the enrollment during the past few years. The number 
has varied and will vary from year to year. The attendance in the past has 
been from 275 to 325 students. There are now 285 graduates of this course. 

The Two-Year Course is so administered that it is a school in itself. Separate 
classes are maintained for the Two-Year students in order that the instruction 
may be adapted to the group and the fundamental principles of the course be 
maintained. In the employment of instructors it has been the policy of the 
institution to secure men of college grade who teach all classes and groups of 


students in the institution. Though paid from short course funds they do not 
comprise a separate staff. The Two-Year Course is distinctly vocational in its 
nature. Its purpose is to train men to farm profitably and to live happily in 
Massachusetts rural communities. 

From the inception of the course, provision has been made for the athletic, 
social and recreational needs of the students. The first step was the engagement 
of a coach, "Em" Grayson, who has developed baseball, football, basketball and 
track activities. Three clubs, the Kolony Klub, the A. T. G. and the S. C. S. 
meet the social needs of the life of the student body. A beginning has been 
made in dramatics by the presentation of class plays and the organization of the 
dramatic club. 

The Two-Year Course has ceased to be an experiment, it is now an established 
organization. In the organization and development of the course much credit 
is due to the Two-Year student councils of this and previous years. In leader- 
ship, in development of morale, in good sense and judgment, this group of men 
have been always dependable. 

In conclusion may I take this opportunity of a formal expression of appre- 
ciation of the loyalty and cooperation of the class of 1923. They leave behind 
an enviable record of achievement.

l^i^toxv of ^Ije Class; of 1923 

When the prospective graduates of the class of '23, the fourth Two- Year 
class, first congregated on this campus, we found a well-established organization 
waiting to receive us. Our numbers were one hundred and fifty-five, five being 
of the fairer sex. 

Following the opening Assembly we were gathered in well-remembered 
Room "F", French Hall, where the Student Council members from the Senior 
class explained the purpose and workings of their organization and helped us to 
elect temporary officers. These were William F. Mulhern, President; Frederick 
W. Marshall, Vice-President; Beatrice B. Kleyla, Secretary; and John S. Arm- 
strong, Treasurer. Harold N. Bacon was elected chairman of the constitutional 
committee, and immediately began to draw up our covenant of government. 
Representatives to the Council for the first term were: Rivet, Merrifield, Scribner 
and McCarthy. 

Various college activities soon absorbed our interest. Football drew a large 
number, and several hard fought games were played. 

About the middle of the first term permanent class officers were chosen to 
serve for one year. These were : John S. Armstrong, President; Everett B. Wood- 
ward, Vice-President; Beatrice B. Kleyla, Secretary; and Paul F. Swanson 

The winter term saw the height of the social season. Several dances were 
held in the Memorial Hall, and all voted them a success. An attempt was made 
to form a hockey team, but lack of ice and equipment proved to be insuperable 
obstacles. A few found diversion and an outlet for success energy on the basket- 
ball team, which had a long and formidable schedule. . 

Late in March we scattered to our farm placement jobs and heard very little 
from one another until fall, when the joyful return occurred. 

With football, classes, dances and good times generally where old friendships 
were renewed and new ones formed, the fall passed swiftly and happily. The new 
class entered into the spirit of things enthusiastically, and their wiUing co-opera- 
tion with us made possible a very pleasant interchange of dances. 

In November class elections were again due, but the class refused to consider 
new faces in office, re-electing the entire executive group of the first year. 


The winter term passed rapidly, altho the heavy snow-fall kept us close to 
the campus, and almost before we knew it the Junior class had departed for their 
farm training. In this class we feel sure we have a worthy successor and a group 
that will carry on and improve the customs and ideals of the course. 

How time has flown this spring! Baseball, dramatics, commencement 
plans, etc., have consumed the time of many. A highly successful baseball 
season was enjoyed. Out of eleven games played the team won seven, Deerfield 
alone getting away with better than an even break. 

The dramatic club was constantly busy with rehearsals, the success of which 
is well attested by the favorable reception of the play "Caste" at the commence- 
ment exercises. 

The commencement exercises were well attended by parents, relatives and 
friends, all of whom seemed to enjoy the campus and the activities. 

Ninety-eight of us received our certificates, and are now ready, supposedly, 
to take the world by its horns and wrest a living from it. We cannot fail to have 
benefitted from the instruction and training received here, and it is to be |hoped 
that we will not forget the institution nor one another, and that, as the years 
go by, we may occasionally return to renew the memories of these happy days.

Manj' and varied have been the activities of this 
sterling youth in his two years here. He first rose to 
prominence on the football field, but soon appeared in 
about every activity on the campus. "Jinks" has 
a great weakness — <leer hunting, — both kinds. He 
can be found most any evening at one of the local 
ballrooms and when it was open season on the other 
variety, he cleared out for the wilds of his home state 
bringing back a handsome buck as a samjile of his

At the time of falling leaves and sweet cider in the 
year 1921, Frank's smiUng countenance was first seen 
around the poultry plant. Being an Animal Hu.sbandry 
major he decided the second year to keep away from 
the chickens, because he didn't want to make the cows 
jealous. Ask Frank about his find, during his farm 
placement training. He will reply, she is quite the 
berries. He has already secured a job in the same 
locality. We are sure Frank will make good although 
many of us envy him for his drag with the Profs, here 
at the college.

he has set a high example in grit and sportsmanlike

In the fall of 1921, Brattleboro, a southern Vermont 
town, delivered to us one of its carefully moulded 
products. This town is especially noted for its Insane 
Asylum and Deaf and Dumb School. So my dear 
reader look at the picture and then judge for yourself. 
As a rule Avery is a very busy lad ; eats, sleeps, attends 
his fuss and dancing courses and assists the noted Greek 
to shake a mean soda. Here is a Httle secret about 
Avery. Do you know the day he had this picture 
taken, he spent $1 .50 for grub ? Some one asked him 
why he did it, and he replied, "I didn't want to look 
hungry in the picture." He goes about not saying 
very much, but we know he thinks a great deal. We 
are sure Avery v\'ill succeed and to him we wish the best

we found out that he had accepted a position that

It must be the latter for recently he did a flying somer-

"Ted" suffers from sleeping sickness — during class, 
but when he works he works hard and is a good student. 
He is a shark at identifying evergreens. His easy good 
nature makes him popular everywhere, especially 
among the co-eds. We don't know whether "Ted" 
plans to be a golf coui'se architect or a highway sur- 
veyor but are sure that he will design attractive links 
or build solid roads. He does things that way. May 
success be his.

"Eat, drink and be merry." 

This quiet conscientious man from Waltham who 
can do about anything from judging cattle to telling 
a professor how to make a graft,, may be often seen 
holding a group of fellows spellbound with one of his 
famous stories. 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 scrajjing bark.

"Drck" is a conscientious and persistent student. 
His pet diversion is the study of human nature. He 
c:laims that landscape gardening is his chosen work, 
but in our judgment we are inclined to think that he 
missed his calling. He should be a lawyer or a diplo- 
mat, or whatever it is they call those people that 
argue for a living. He is always well posted on world

where he is wrong. If the landscapes can stand his

"The price of learning is much earnest study." 

"Pete", is a quiet chap but has been known to un-

generally show the result of considerable earnest 
thought. All things growing interest "Pete." Most 
of his work here has been with poultry, but it is well 
known that bees exercise not a little attraction for him 
too. Although "Pete" seldom appears to be bubbling 
over with optimism and high spirits, we would hardly 
place him in the pessimist class. In whatever line of

was up against as he had lived in Amherst all his life. 
He is seldom seen around during the week ends, but 
he has never forgotten to come back with a big smile 
and a light heart on Monday morning. As a loyal 
and conscientious supporter of class activities "Les" 
has no superior, but the toot of the five-ten car will 
generally suffice to draw him away from the most 
absorbing affair and speed him toward the waiting 
bossies and biddies.

the position at half back where he made himself famous 
during his career at "Aggie." As a pitcher, he reminds 
us of Walter Johnson, and was responsible for several 
of our victories. When not pitching he covered first

"Kel's" twirling has baffled and beaten opposing batters

Shaking the light fantastic exerts a great puU on "Le"

keep clear of all the various forms of amusement en-

well on the surpassing beauties of many Venus de

"Matt" is a hard, conscientious worker with the pro-

Thus far he has killed no one, but our advice is keep 
away from there the days he is mixing bug poison in

The real "Buddie" is hidden behind a mask; blase 
and carefree to only those who know him best. More 
than a little a humorist and a trickster "Egroez Donas" 
can delight anyone when he chooses. In home circles 
he is supposed to have a steadying influence on his 
"wife" "Rosie" but we fail to see any evidence of it. 
On one or two occasions he has created considerable 
excitement in Hamp but for the most part he is a steady 
going fellow for whom the future can only bring

There are a lot of us who have never become as fam-

always seen going to class and from class at a moderate

somewhere downtown which may go to solve it all. He 
also is a good hard worker in college, and as far as the 
editorial staff is concerned we really can't find a good

"The farmers are the strength of the nation," 

Richardson, the man of the hour, dressed in his 
snappy knickers and King Tut golf socks, would never 
give the impression that he came from the little back- 
woods town of West Brookfield. Almost every night 
in the week our friend "Richy" can be found in the

"You can't tread lightly with heavy shoes." 

As quiet in disposition and manner as is imaginable 
except when late for supper. Harry has always been 
willing to carry the bats and extra footballs for the boys 
(in the different trips. We expect to see him in the 
future carrying the brimming pail for some blushing 
miUimaid as they return from the green pastures. We 
are not saying how his other hand and arm will be 
occupied. When "Kel" was in the box Harry gathered 
in the high ones in center field with ease and dispatch 
but one of the opposing outfielders always seemed to be 
faiiijied right on the spot where Harry elected to drop 
liis long wallops. Better luck in the future.

"A foot more light a step more true.

"Schnitz" swings a mean clotli behind the counter 
at the Aggie Inn, during his spare hours. His cheery 
grin and friendly word sells many a miimmified dough- 
nut or piece of stale pie that otherwise seemed "born 
to bloom unseen." On occasion he retires to the 
Idtchenctte and O! what luscious dainties then come 
forth! We often wonder what percentage he receives 
from the local druggists and physicians, not to mention 
undertakers. "Schnitz" certainly ought to be able to 
satisfy the appetites of his flock when his chicken 
ranch gets under way.

"Now by two-headed genius, nature hath

This easy going chap has an almost fatal failing for 
school teachers. The fatal part comes in when an 
irrate prof lands on this luckless lad for an over-due 
lab. report. Perhaps some later date may prove the 
fatal failing to take on a more personal touch. Who 
can tell? John's other faihng is Rural Soc plus dramatic 
rehearsals. We wonder where he got his little originals 
(?) before his indulging in these collegiate pastimes. 
His chief hobbies are athletics and half cuts. As all star 
center for the Mcintosh Red quintet in their desperate 
encounters with the Butter Fats he displayed rare and 
remarkable talent. When "Slats" gets thru here he 
intends to raise tobacco in the famous little town from 
which he comes and we expect to hear consideratjly 
more of this town from then on.

"Dizzy" is very much interested in all subjects 
agricultural and surely finds out all there is to know, 
while in the classroom. He is easy to pick in a crowd, 
his walk is distinctive, he dotes on radio, and is in his 
glory when he is picking agricultural news from the air. 
He hasn't much time to spare for campus activities 
other than the classroom. We understand he likes to 
step out and surely shakes a wicked leg. We, predict 
big things for him, for his interests are varied; perhaps 
he may rival "Marconi" or may fool us and go back to 
the soil.

"Smiddy" is interested in Animal Husbandry and 
says he has picked up many pointers along this line 
while with it.. We think he has qther interests away 
from "Aggie" for he has been slipping away, very 
quietly on week-ends, perhaps to the "Home Town." 
"Smiddy" has a disposition which many envy and you 
can tell him by his pleasant smile. Much of our team's 
success this season has been due to his hard work 
behind the bat, and his ability to nip them at second. 
We know he will make good after leaving us and wish

Outside of class the only thing we have over seen 
"Bob" get really warmed-up over is bowling. During 
the cool days he was a steady customer at the Memorial 
Hall alleys. For a man of few words he sure can make billets talk when he goes into action with a fast 
cross-alley ball. Seldom is he seen on the short end 
of a match whether it is "two-some" or a "four-some". 

We hope he doesn't forget himself and use the same 
tactics when he gets to shooing chickens into their 
coops at night.

"Ed's" major is Vegetable Gardening and therein 
lies his chief interest. Next to that he loves an argu- 
ment and never fails to arouse the professor's ire with 
his fool questions. However, his good nature is as 
unruffled as the pond on a June day and all his boyish 
pranks are done in pure innocence. His favorite one 
seems to be a double share of half cuts, but we under- 
stand that a brother of "Ed's" went before himsothat 
he is burdened with a reputation to hve up to. Those 
of us who were privileged to sit near "Ed" on chapel 
mornings are going to miss the inspiration for a day's 
work when no longer we can hear him carry the bass 
of No. 195. "Ed" is going back to the plains of 
Brimfield to show them down that way how to grow 
vegetables and we will bet he can do it.

the success of this book. He has worked unceasingly

"Pop" is not graduating with us as he did not enter

be located at his study on East Pleasant Street where 
all is quiet and serene. "Steve" sure is a "Bookworm,"

slowness of speech which is characteristic of his section 
of our fair land. "Stick" is a conscientious worker and

This boy is a regular information bureau. There 
are not many questions pertaining to botany or agri-

and always wilUng to help a fellow. We have oftened 
wondered whether "Swanie" came up here to attend 
college or to attend to class affairs of the Two- Year

Gardening, many would get the impression by observ- 
ing his activities that he had many majors. Paul had 
long cherished the idea of going out West but having 
heard so much about China during his two years here, 
he has decided to go over there and teach the Chinese 
how to farm. A good student, popular with everyone,

This is not "Bob's" first offense at an agricultural

the Essex County Aggie, but its limited offerings did 
not fit with his ambitious nature. His hard work has 
made him one of the leaders of his class and got him the 
job of rusthng photos for the Shorthorn. That he has 
not done all that was required of him and more, no-

Upon our arrival on the campus in September, 1922, the Student Council 
took us in hand, explaining that organization and its purpose, assisting in the 
election of temporary officers, and outlining the course we were to follow in regard 
to conduct. Officers elected at this meeting were: President, Everett Miller; 
Secretary, Dorothy Haskell; and Treasurer, Allerton Johnston. 

At the election of permanent officers the office of vice-president was done 
away with and the secretary was authorized to serve as president in the absence 
of that officer. The president, secretary and treasurer were re-elected, but 
Allerton Johnston resigned and his place was taken by Albert Cole, assisted by a 
committee of collectors. 

A reception and dance tendered us by the seniors was attended and enjoyed 
by a large part of the class. This proved to be a valuable means of establishing 
contacts, not only with the seniors but also among ourselves. We gave the 
seniors a return dance to show our appreciation. 

Several men turned their attention to football, and, under Coach Maginnis' 
direction, developed into competent players, greatly strengthening the team. 

During the winter dances and basketball took up the spare time and provided 
diversion. Most of the regulars on the basketball squad came from our class, 
so a good team should be forthcoming next year. 

While the snow still lay deep on the ground the winter term came to an end, 
and we parted for our farm placement work. Even in the short time we have 
spent here we have come to feel the helpful and broadening influence of Aggie, 
and we all look forward to a happy and profitable senior year.

Wf)t ^fjort Course §tubent Council 

This organization which had its inception in November, 1919, has risen to a 
place of considerable importance and influence in setthng infractions of conduct. 
The Council has proven its value to the course by bringing the two classes into 
closer contact and making possible unified action on matters of importance. 

With the practical discontinuation of Rural Engineering and Vocational 
Poultry courses the membership of the Council has been reduced to eleven. All 
nominations and elections are now carried on at a regular assembly. This has 
served to heighten the general interest and to insure the selection of satisfactory 

A conscientious group has always characterized the Council, which has 
earned the respect of not only the Two- Year students but also of the Four- Year 
men and faculty.

Social ^ctibitp 

CIa0S of 1923 

The Social Committee of the class has indeed been an active one during its 
reign of office of one short year and a half. The outstanding feature has been 
the co-operation and class spirit which has crowned the social event with success. 

The first event which remains vivid in the memory of all was given in Novem- 
ber under the name of "A Farmers' Ball." This was enjoyed by all, especially the 
loyal co-eds, who entered into the spirit of the masquerade whole heartedly. 
Director and Mrs. Phelan, with other members of the Faculty, added much to the 
pleasure of the evening. It passed with much merriment and fun. 

Not only have the members of the class enjoyed indoor activities, but the 
lure of this wonderful and interesting valley has been quite keenly felt, especially 
by the co-eds. Bacon bats and hikes have been enjoyed from time to time. Mt. 
Sugar Loaf and Toby have been explored by various members of this large and 
energetic group of j'oung men and women. 

On returning as Seniors last September we gave a Welcome Reception and 
Dance to the large Freshman Class of 1924, in Memorial Hall. The guest of 
honor was President Butterfield, who had just returned to us from China. Mem- 
bers of the Faculty were present, and the spirit was one of warm appreciation. 

The ensuing months passed by on wings! The next event was a Farewell 
Dance to the departing Freshman Class. Both classes entered into this last 
social of the year with a feeling of comradeship which has left a lasting influence 
upon us, who leave this campus in June. We shall not forget the good times 
here, and look forward to future reunions after we have gone out into our life

. ^. C. i:b30=gear dramatic Club 

All organizations pertaining to dramatics which had been formed previous 
to 1923, were composed of senior students, and, altho excellent work was done in 
the production of the commencement plays, the disbanding and breaking up of 
each club thru the graduation of its entire membership necessitated the organiza- 
tion of a new club before dramatic work could be resumed. This has been a 
very serious obstacle in attaining that high standard to which the Two-Year 
group aspires. Plans for overcoming this weakness in organization were present- 
ed to Director Phelan, in January, 1923, and with his approval a meeting of those 
students interested in dramatics took place. 

The question as to whether or not we should have a permanent dramatic 
organization met with a favorable answer, and temporary officers were elected, 
with twenty students signing as members. A committee was elected to draft 
the necessary constitution and by-laws. 

At a meeting on January 31, the Constitution was presented and accepted 
by the club members, who, at this time, numbered forty. 

February 15th an election of officers took place, and the temporary officers 
were re-elected to hold office for the remainder of the year. 


In accordance with the constitution of the club an election of officers was held 
March 22nd, and a full staff of officers elected among the junior members of the 
club. This junior staff will assume office at the termination of the Spring college 
term, and will take up and continue the dramatic work upon their return to college. 
In this way the organization is perpetuated from year to year, obstacles of re- 
organization are largely overcome and better work should be done. 

It was hoped that in this club all short course students might meet on an 
equal standing and not be separated by grades or factions of any kind. Therefore, 
all short course and special students are eligible for membership, and faculty 
members are welcomed thru invitation by the executive chairman. 

As soon as organization was fairly complete it was decided to begin stage 
work at once, and tryouts were held from which seven one-act plays were cast, 
two of which — "Lend Me Five Shilhngs" and "The Brink of Silence" — were 
later presented at Bowker Auditorium. 

At a meeting in March two committees were appointed, one to select a com- 
mencement play and one to organize an orchestra. The committee on plays 
selected "Caste," by T. W. Robertson, for commencement, and an orchestra 
was organized under the leadership of Miss Fredonna Leitch. 

A cast for the commencement play was soon chosen, and the work of prepara- 
tion moved along spiritedly. The orchestra, composed of five pieces soon gave 
every indication of success. 

Altho there are many things about the organization and policy of the club 
that can be very much improved, yet, up to the present time, the club has been 
thoroughly successful. It is hoped that the class of twenty-four will take up the 
work where we are obliged to drop it, and, over the trail which we have lilazed, 
build a broad and permanent road straight on to higher standards in dramatic

^toogear Clubs; 

Nobody of any vision can fail to recognize the importance of social life in a 
college, and in the clubs that have been developed in the Two- Year Course is to 
be found the highest type of fraternal life. 

In 1922, there were four of these clubs on the campus, three for boys and one 
for girls, but one of the boys' clubs was forced to drop out. Of the two remaining 
boys' clubs, one has a house of its own, and the other is hopeful of being likewise 
established in the not too distant future. 

The clubs have shown themselves to be of great value in drawing the alumni 
back to various occasions on the campus. 

A healthy spirit of rivalry exists between the clubs, and a series of twilight 
ball games were played this spring. During the winter the clubs combined forces 
on several occasions to stage dances in the Memorial Hall. 

Let us hope that none of the present clubs will wither away, but that each 
will prosper and expand, continuing to hold the same broad outlook which now 
characterizes them.

Coach Graj^son's call for candidates for the team was answered by a large 
squad of mostly inexperienced men, there being only three veterans back in the 
line-up. Coach Grayson and Captain Betterley immediately got to work, and 
soon the Two- Year Course was represented by a fast and snappy team. 

The first game was against the heavy varsity "C" team, and the boys sure 
did look good in there. The Two- Year showed superior tact and skill, decisively 
defeating their opponents with a 10 — score. 

Our next game was with the fast Stevens Institute eleven. It was a hard- 
fought contest, but we had to suffer a 14 — 7 defeat. 

After two weeks of hard practice, "Aggie" lined up against Worcester North 
High. We started off with a "bang" and every man was in there every minute, 
and we were never in danger. The Worcester boys put up a good fight, but the 
superior playing of their opponents sent them home defeated with a score of 

Our team next journeyed down to the "Nutmeg State" to play the Conn. 
Aggie 2nd team. The teams were quite evenly matched, l)ut the "Conn" boys 
finally succeeded in putting over their second touchdown, and we left the gridiron 
on the small end of a 14 — 7 score. 

The two hardest games of the season were to come next — the heavy Spring- 
field College second team and the speedy Lowell Textile eleven. Our opponents 
outweighed us twenty pounds to the man, and we were defeated by both teams 
with final scores of 31 — and 3.5 — 0. 

However, it was a profitable season, and material for the 1922 team was

Jfoottiall 1922 

About thirty candidates answered Coach Maginnis' call for candidates, but 
of this squad the green material was far in excess of the veterans. This squad had 
hard workouts daily under the supervision of Coach Maginnis and Captain Bangs, 
and a fighting team was developed. 

The season was unsuccessful from a standpoint of victories, but this was not 
due to the fact that they did not play the game to win. The boys played hard 
and clean in every game, but were unsuccessful in pushing the pigskin across for 
the winning points. 

Altho the season was unsuccessful, much valuable football knowledge and 
hard earned experience were gained by the undergraduates, and a good season 
next year is looked forward to. 

The exceptional work of Captain Bangs at quarter and Outhuse at center 
were the outstanding features of the games, and too much credit cannot be given 
to the untiring efforts of Coach Maginnis.

Pagfeettjall 1922 

The 1922 Two- Year basketball season opened with several familiar faces on 
the squad. A hard schedule of sixteen games had been arranged by Manager 
Nettleton. There was a lot of good material out for the team, but they lacked 
experience, and Coach Grayson had a difficult proposition on his hands to develop 
the needed material. After several calls for candidates "Em" was able to whip 
two full teams together, and lively practice games took place daily. Soon a very 
promising team was developed under the efficient direction of Coach Grayson and 
Captain Ross. 

The season started off with a victory over Amherst High. The next game 
was our first defeat at Sacred Heart. Three more defeats followed, but we 
didn't give up the ship. After a long cold ride to Arms Academy we lined up 
against the Strong "Arms" team; it was a closely fought contest from the start 
to the finish. After playing two over time periods we finally succeeded in defeat- 
ing our opponents to the tune of 21 — 20. 

Five victories and five defeats were the results of the rest of our season. Too 
much credit cannot be given to Captain Ross. He worked hard every minute, and 
his foul shooting was far superior to his 0]3ponents.

JBasifeetijaU 1923 

The basketball team of 1923 was composed of practically all raw material, 
there being but two members of the 1922 team which formed the nucleus around 
which the team had to be built up. There was a truly large response at the 
calling of candidates, and much enthusiasm was displayed by all. Every indiv- 
idual was given a thorough tryout to display his mettle, and under the watchful 
eye of "Em", those of this year's team who come back next ye^r, together with 
what raw material may be developed, should put the Shorthorn Quintet back 
into the winning column and uphold the reputation of Two- Year teams in days 
gone by. 

Altho this season's record was on the face of it rather disappointing from the 
standpoint of victories won, yet let it be said that it was thru no lack of spirit 
or gameness that the scores do not read differently; for every player exemplified 
the same Aggie spirit which has ever been prevalent from the beginning of the 

The team seemed to gain in strength toward the end of the season, and 
the fact that the strong Natick High School team was taken into camp tends to 
bear this statement out. 

So, after taking into consideration the fact that the men were all new to 
each other and did not have the big advantage of ever having played together, 
it should not be said that the team was entirely unsuccessful, and the experience 
gained by the Junior members is sure to make itself manifest during the years

PafiJeball 1923 

Immediately after the close of the basketball season indoor baseball practice 
began in the Drill Hall. About thirty candidates reported to Coach "Em" 
Grayson, all of whom had more or less previous experience; but each had a de- 
termination to do his best for the course, for the team and for "Em." 

The season started with a 23 — 5 victory over Turners Falls High, which 
gave evidence that a hard-hitting and snappy team was to represent the Two- 
Year Course this season. 

The next game against Sacred Heart High was opened with a homer by 
Micky McGrath on the first ball pitched. Armstrong dupUcated Micky's feat 
a few moments later, and the game was on ice. Carl Henry's excellent pitching 
could not be solved by the Holyoke boys who did not connect safely throughout 
the game. 

The first out-of-town game was played with Wilbraham Academy at Wilbra- 
ham, and the team continued in its winning stride by bringing home an 11 — 3 
victory. The hard hitting of the Aggie boys and Kelley's excellent work on the 
mound featured the game. 

One week later the Wilbraham team journeyed to Amherst to even things up, 
but "Em's" strong aggregation started in where it left off the previous week, and 
the visitors left on the short end of a 19 — 5 score. 

Monson Academy's strong team visited the campus a few days later, confident 
of a win. Both teams hit the ball hard and handled it carelessly, but the final 
count showed the two-year boys on the long end of a 17: — 14 score. 

At this stage of the season the boys lost their batting eyes and suffered three 
defeats at the hands of Sacred Heart, Deerfield Academy and Monson Academy. 
The absence of Captain Bangs in the first two of these games was keenly felt, 
and his value to the team became very evident. The following week the boys 
returned to the winning column by defeating Palmer High 14 — 2. 

June second the Deerfield nine visited the campus, and won in the ninth by 
a score of 8 — 6. This was a close, interesting game, and a fine exhibition of 

The season was ended in the proper manner by annexing the Commencement 
game with Worcester North High by the score of 11—1. The season proved to 
be one of the most successful any of "Em's" teams have thus far experienced. 
All hated to see it end so soon, and the joy of playing together will long be re-
