We have attempted, in publishing this year's 
Shorthorn, to carry out the ideals and spirit of the 
preceding editions, and, profiting by the excellent 
examples afforded us, to turn out as good a book as 
is in our power. Let us hope that following classes 
will in turn Ijenefit by our mistakes, worthily add to 
the traditions and ideals set before them, and produce 
Shorthorns of ever-increasing excellence. For after 
all, a year-book perpetuates the traditions and spirit 
of a college course in the minds of its graduates; and 
what better method of preserving them, so adding 
to the honor and dignity of the Two-Year Course, 
than to base the foundation of every edition of the 
Shorthohn upon them?

Our sincere friend and leader, whose 
advice and material aid have been a great 
help to us in compiling this edition of the 
Shorthorn, this volume is dedicated as a 
token of our appreciation for the help and 
friendship he has given us during our 
college days.

Since its organization in 1918, at the request of the Massachusetts legisla- 
ture, the Two- Year Course in practical agriculture has registered 905 students. 
There are now 354 graduates of the course. Practically all of these are in Mas- 
sachusetts or in New England, but graduates of the course are to be found in 
Florida, California, the Northwest, and even the Isle of Jersey. 

It was the intention of the legislature to create a distinctly vocational 
course and such has been the policy of administration. Seven major voca- 
tional lines are now open to the student. Six months of placement training are 
required and the assistance of the college given to students in finding positions 
when the course has been finished. 

Full provision has been made for the social, athletic, and recreational life 
of the student bodj' through clubs, organizations, committees, etc. One of the 
strongest features of the Two- Year Course is that it does provide opportunity 
for the general development of the student. 

The course has not been in existence long enough to determine what its ulti- 
mate contribution to Massachusetts Agriculture will be. It has already gained 
a worthy name for itself in the state. It has a loyal alumni and in my judgment 
an assured future. As years go by the graduates of this course become influencial 
farmers of the state. The future of the course will to a great extent depend upon 
the interest of the alumni in helping each other and through the support and loyalty 
to the college. It has Ijeen a rare privilege to know, during the past six years, 
the student body enrolled in this course. Whatever success the course may have 
already attained has been due to the democratic spirit of our great president and 
loyaltj' of our student bodj\ To this student body I am now bidding farewell 
with every good wish and with every expression of gratitude for their counsel, 
co-operation and support.

How well do we remember President Butterfield's warm words of welcome 
when Fate or Fortune guided us to the M. A. C. campus as students in the Two- 
Year Course. We may remember even more clearly the first class meeting in 
Room "F" of good old French Hall where vSwanson and Armstrong, the sages 
of the class of '23, expounded to us the traditions of the course, laid down the 
rules and regulations of campus etiquette, and conducted the election of class 
officers for the 132 students enrolled in the Two- Year Course. 

Everett Miller was entrusted with the leadership of the class. Dorothy 
Haskell was made class secretary, while Allerton Johnstone became guardian 
of the treasury, succeeded later by Cole. The constitution was drawn up by a 
committee headed by Hugh Eaton. Receptions and dances were frequent during 
the fall term and were a source of much pleasure. Athletics occupied the spare 
time of some, while others devoted themselves more to social activities. 

During the winter term basketball, dramatics and social events furnished 
recreation. However, not the least of our time and energy was expended in 
classroom and library. 

The end of the winter term marked our farewell to friends and dispersed us 
over the countryside to the farms for our practical experience. The Short Course 
Office kept us informed of campus events through the pages of a monthly newslet- 
ter. Except for that many of us would never have heard from our classmates 
during the summer. 

On our return in September close relations were soon established with the 
incoming class and we settled down to business. In November class officers 
were elected. Elwin Cromack became president; Harold Olsen, vice-president; 
Alice Goodnow, secretary; and Albert Cole was continued in the treasury. A 
corps of financiers was appointed to aid the treasurer in his stupendous task. A 
new system of handling social affairs was adopted on suggestion from the office. 
Season tickets for two-year social events were issued to each member of the class. 
This plan has proven very satisfactory. Work on the 1924 Shorthorn began 
early under the able supervision of Albert Cole as Editor-in-Chief and Lawrence 
Longley, Business Manager. 

Outdoor sports and hikes were very popular during the winter. We missed 
the class of '25 when they left in March but we feel sure that thej' will return to 
carry on the standards of the Two- Year Course. Dramatics and baseball were 
attractive to a good number and the excellent work of those participating cannot 
be too highly praised. All eyes were set toward the goal which had constantly 
inspired us — our own commencement. 

The commencement exercises were such as we never can forget. The class 
play, "Believe Me Xantippe," was excellent. The Class Day exercises and all 
other events were very well attended by friends and relatives. Sixty-nine of us 
received certificates from the hands of President Butterfield. 

No matter what our worldly lot may be, we will never forget the two years, 
the happiest of our lives, that we spent at M. A. C. Our thoughts will always 
return to Aggie and our sincerest gratitude will be with Professor Phelan, our 
constant adviser and friend.

"To the Aggie Inn on high, for tonight we dine." 

"Jim" is one of those fellows who can be insulted 
four different ways and still be good natured, always 
joking and making the party merry. We don't know 
whether for protection or from force of habit "Jim" 
takes "Wes" Howe with him everywhere. What will 
you do for a wife, "Jim," when "Wes" marries his 
North Amherst blonde? "Jim's" favorite sports are 
chewing gum and sprinting to breakfast about 7. .50 
each morning. All of '24 wishes you luck, "Jim," 
whether you shine shoes for the President or cut cord- 
wood in Belchertown.

"Well mauled about, though hard of head, on gridiron 
struggles fierce." 

This sturdy son of Vermont is one of the "Big Four" 
from that distant land about Waitsfield. Nothing 
should prevent "Bis" from being a prosperous farmer. 
He has no weaknesses — by that we mean he has not 
seen any women in this district that appeal to him. 
Those who took Agri. Ec. in his class remember his 
rosy cheeks when his cold neighbor looked his way. 
"Bis" likes to "cut-up" once in a while and his idea of 
sport is watching bottles fly around the dairy. Any 
one calling "Bis" his friend has something to be proud 
of and we all wish j'ou success, "Bis," when you return 
to your native town.

"Love may transform me to an oyster. 
But I'll take my oath on it, 
Till he has made an oyster of me. 
He shall never make me such a fool." 
About the fu'st thing we saw when we arrived in 
September, 1922, was a hungry-looking Thespian. 
That was Blanchard. Women, church socials, and 
dancing helped him while away the time "between the 
acts." He said that his major was Pomology, but we 
think it is Dramatics. We know that that was his 
big work his senior year. If you are ever in Leominster 
and hear a squeaky little voice say, "Hello, there," — 
look for "Larry."

"Then hoe it down and scratch your grabble, 
To Dixieland I'm bound to trabble." 
"Jim" has been a popular member of the class dur- 
ing our two years here, and he has developed quite a 
"rep" as chef for "Ma" Goodwin. "Jim" came to us 
from Virginia and doesn't care much for our raw win- 
ters. He plans on two years more here for special 
study. Few of us question why "Jim" likes M. A. C. 
so much. What we wonder is why they put M. A. C. 
so far from the rest of the world. Well, "Jim," we all 
wish you luck.

"Pass the sugar, Denny." 
Same being a rather small blue-eyed and sandy- 
haired son of Old England, with many of his native 
habits and prerequisites still clinging to him. We are 
minded forcibly of the following: 

"There was an old man from Dundee 
Who always put sand in his tea; 
He received a great shock 
When he found that a rock 
Had formed on the inside of he." 
However, rain or shine, good luck or bad, "Boots" 
always keeps his shadow behind him and turns to the 
world a smiling countenance and a cheery remark. 
But he's an excitable little chap. Perhaps this trait is 
accentuated by his frequent appearance in public with 
a large visible expanse of vivid green shirt. We won- 
der did the dear chappie come across via Dublin'? On 
the other hand, he is usually as shy and retiring as the 
famous violet. We would delight to know of any dates 
he has made; nor does he ever visit the Abbey. How- 
ever — be it whispered — "Boots" plans on going to 
Tennessee upon completing his arduous labors here, 
upon which much may hinge.

"All thai glitters is not gold." 

"Rusty" Bryant, alias "Kid Ripple," so-called be- 
cause of his wavy hair. His big red head is a g-g-great 
b-b-ball of f-f-fire, and it is admired by all the co-eds. 
He came to us from the great metropolis just outside of 
Lowell, known as Dracut. "Rusty" has stepped out 
three or four times this year, 'nuff sed, he don't want 
the world to know about it. Words will not express 
his beauty; the Slikum Company is losing a fortune by 
not having him in their ads. His one great weakness 
outside of women is eating ice cream. We expect this 
young man to do wonders in farm organization in the 
rural community in which he lives.

"Bill" hails all the way from Tewksburv and is a 
practical vegetable gardener. He is up here on what 
he calls a vacation and is trying to get a little dope on 
the theoretical end of it. "Bill" is a quiet little fellow, 
well liked by all, but he seldom steps out. This seemed 
funny to us when we learned that he lives next door to 
a nurses' training school.

"He prays your speedy payment." 

"That isn't the way they do it in the Hudson Valley" 
is the favorite expression of this representative of the 
scions of old Hendrick. Student Council, Class Treas- 
urer, passer of hash, are only a few of this boy's accom- 
plishments. Whatever he did he never did it by halves, 
and his marks show it. Pomology was his major, and 
sometimes he has shown evidence of a better pomolo- 
gist than the Profs. Rumor says that this good- 
natured, ever-smiling chap has some one waiting for 
him "back home." How about it. "Al""?

"Divine in hookas, glorir)us in a pipe. 
Yet thy true lovers more admire by far 
Thy naked beauties — give me a cigar." 

A whole volume might be written on this fair-haired 
vouth, but we haven't space enough for that. He 
hails from that delightful place on Long Island called 
Patchogue. That voluminous smile of his has won 
him a host of friends, including many members of the 
fair sex (if anybody doubts this just inquire at the 
Abbej), and at making love he can't be beat. He 
was caught doing it on the stage in Stockbridge Hall 
one night, much to the amusement of the audience, 
and, believe us, he certainly put it across. For "Conk" 
to be without his brief ease, though, would be like try- 
ing to smoke a pipe without tobacco. They must 
always be together; one can't do without the other.

Silent, slow, and dignified is Craig. We have often 
wondered if his children are like him. We understand 
that Kenneth is taking courses at Amherst College up 
at the other end of tlie town. We are sure he does 
Old Lord Jeff credit. His quietness was his badge of 
distinction. When he spoke the world paused to listen.

"What an excellent thing did God bestow upon man 
when He gave him a good stomach." 

Elwin drifted into Amherst on his way to the United 
States from his native town of Colrain. He happened 
to pass the sheep barn and heard the hungry blats. 
Being a good Samaritan, he stopped and fed them. He 
still functions along those lines. He is active in all 
respects — playing football, being class president, vice- 
president of the A. T. G., and the Student Council 
were four of his troubles. There seems to be an attrac- 
tion up North Adams way that troubles him more 
than Amherst and all his studies. Any one who has 
seen Elwin breeze down to the sheep barn at 5 a.m. 
when the weather was below zero will know he is bound 
to succeed. Go to it, cowboy! 

Samuel Susitin Cutler 


1903; Animal Husbandry; A. T. G. 

"Coics, horses, and such-like fill his day; 
But girls," says he, "Nay, nay, nay, nay!" 

"Sam" is a happy, good-natured lad who never takes 
life seriously or worries about anything. We saw very 
little of him last .year, and from January to March of 
this year, he spent all his time milking in our Royal 
Cow Barn. "Sam" milked four times a day for a 
while, but that interfered with eats, sleep, and studies; 
so "Sam" gave it up and is now quite a studious chap. 

"Sam" is a hard worker and is bound to meet suc- 
cess. When he gets homesick, he struts down to the 
cow barns to see his four-legged friends. "Sam" 
knows a good Guernsey when he sees one. He is a 
woman hater, but according to the Aggie Ec. and Farm 
Management profs, "a wife is a farm necessity." Bet- 
ter get one young, "Sam," and train her. How about 
that summer school baby?

"Here in a man — bid 'tis before hinface; I will be silent." 

Franklin claims this young man to be her "Darling," 
but we thank her heartily for the privilege of making 
the acquaintance of him. "Ducky" came here to 
learn how the trees and shrubs get their three square 
meals a day out of just common earth and from reli- 
able sources we find out that he has succeeded. We 
wish him every success, and feel perfectly safe in say- 
ing that he can administer the right medicine if a plant 
is suddenly attacked with indigestion.

"How can a man lire and yet be so beautiful?"

otherwise known as "Kid Botulinas." He hails from 
the swamps of Natick, well-known for its athletes. He 
is one of the Ned Mahan type, has made his lettei-s in 
10 different sport.s; of course he was the manager. 
A world-famous record was made on the Remington 
typewriter when he dashed off 30 words in 30 minutes 
with onl\- 20 mistakes. Not so bad when one consid- 
ers that he is a student of the hit-and-miss system.

He is a very cagey student and always gets a gentle- 
man's marks. He says he could do better Ijut he is so 
sensitive that he does not like to go above his brother 
students. He has learned this theory in Aggie Ec. 
The Golden Rule is his principle. He is thinking of 
taking a post-graduate course in Salesmanship so as to 
be able to sell penny cones to the children in future 
years. If the class ever decides to give EUnor Glynn's 
play, "Why Girls Leave Home," "Kid Botchy" could 
play "the reason."

"Sleep, my little one, sleep, my pretty one, sleep." 

This huslcy son of Wilbraham known as "Art" in 
society, but better known as "Joe," came to us out of 
a clear sky after attending some of the best high schools 
in the state. But on account of the large amount of 
noises, "Art" didn't get all the sleep a hard working 
farmer needed. "Art" does like his sleep — ask any 
Prof. The cure is fresh air on Stockbridge steps. If 
we work at the pace Files does, we all would sleep. 
"Art" is always willing and good-natured. He steps 
out with our co-eds now and then, but we won't hold 
that against him. "Art" and his Holsteins are going 
to be an Eastern .States special in a few years. Go to 
it, "Art."

"Bat" came to us from the Back Bay of "Bean

At any rate, we are sure she will make good in her 
chosen line and if those Indian friends of hers on that 
far-off Oklahoma Reservation don't acquire some good 
old New England farming methods when she reaches 
them (if the owner of that "frat" pin doesn't reach her 
first), it won't be her fault! Battle has always been a 
most loyal supporter of all our class activities, a gener- 
ous friend, and last, but not least, a darn good sport. 
We are all mighty glad to have known her.

Meet the Beau Brummel of our class — blond curly

yes! One can hear his blue and gray checked sweater 
coming before it heaves into sight. Combine that 
with a gray felt hat, light suit, fawn-colored overcoat, 
and spats, and you have it complete. As he joined us 
one term late, he'll be returning next year to set an 
example in dress for the incoming class — a worthy 
cause. We wonder what subjects interest the boy. 
There were varied subjects and speakers at assembly 
the past year but he always did nearly as much talking 
as the speaker and never evidenced any interest in 
either of them. Apparently he feels that his conversa- 
tion is more interesting to those about him than the 
speaker's. However, the Student Council didn't 
think likewise.

"Geesey" wandered to M. A. C. from the place 
where Woolworth's is the highest building. He came 
for Floriculture because he believes in the slogan, "Say 
it with flowers." Carl is such a quiet boy (?). Ask 
the girls. Dancing seems to be his hobby and as an 
instructor he can't be beat. Always slicked and 
spruced up, "Goosey" makes a very pleasing and popu- 
lar young man and we can't blame the girls in the least 
for falling for him. He has the good wishes of all the 
class. If we had some flowers we would say it properly.

"There is many a 'Goode' tune in an old fiddle." 

Frank may be an old man but he has young ideas. 
He also has some ideas about the way the poultry de- 
partment is conducted and never hesitates to tell the 
instructor about it. His greatest pride is that no 
woman ever bossed him until he had Miss Pulley in 
Poultry. His activities at "Aggie" have been as varied 
as they were before he came here. As an ex-ball 
tosser, he helped coach the varsity baseball team this 
spring. Having worked in the shoe industry he sold 
shoes on the campus and threatens to return to the 
industry. Because of his drafting experience he was 
the shining light of the class in Rural Engineering, but 
his greatest achievement is his newl,v gained knowledge 
in turkey raising. If you want real down-to-the-min- 
ute information on this subject, Frank will give it to 
you without any urging on your part. Just mention 
the subject. Alter placement training, Frank came 
back with a Kissel car. He says a car is a great con- 
venience but it cost him a lot of worry to learn that 
the motor won't run far without oil. It's rough on 
bearings. Experience is a tough teacher, eh, Frank?

appearance on week-ends of a certain young man and 
a certain green Hudson. We have heard it said that 
"Al" can throw a mean ball, Judging from the noise 
that can be heard in the south-end of the "Allies" at 
the Memorial Building on Monday nights, we agree. 
Alice has dragged herself laboriously through two win- 
ters here at "Aggie," but has never had the chance to 
perspire through a summer. So she has decided to 
stay and use her agricultural knowledge in the interest 
of the Grounds Department, and "Papa" Dickinson 
should find her an able and willing worker.

"A man may be down, but he's never out." 

"Haff" is one of those good old souls who would let 
you take his false teeth if he thought you were real 
hungry. "Haff" and "Sherm" English spent most of 
their time together last year. "Sherm" had hard luck 
and had to stay home and work; and we see more of 
"Haff" and think him a promising agriculturist. He 
spends more time studying than most of us prescribe, 
but "Haff" is going to win out. Good luck, "Haff." 
"Haff" has one weakness — alas, women! He sure has 
good taste and believes in importing girls for our dances. 
He considers studies a man's work; but when there is 
a dance in town, he says, "Ladies first."

that this peaceful old vallej' could produce such a per-

latter trait I s'pose we can attribute "Dot's" well- 
earned reputation for being able to swing any sort of 
a "get-together party" provided, of course, boys are 
included, from a bacon bat on Toby to a dance in 
Memorial Hall. She was also an ardent supporter of 
skiing hikes, especially the "two-sy" kind, but that 
was in '23! Them days is gone forever? Seriously, 
though, "Dot" deserves all the credit coming to her, 
for her loyal and untiring efforts in behalf of the Class

"Your grace, I fear, with dancing is a little heated." 

"Jigger" is a city guy studying how to farm. He is 
learning most rapidly. The science of milk extraction, 
however, has got "Jigger" baffled. Practice makes 
perfect, "Jig" — you will learn how to milk yet. For 
a side issue he swings a mean rag on the food counter 
at the Aggie Inn. "Jigger" can sell anything they have 
in stock there, although he seldom gets the right price 
for it. He is in "Mike's" class when it comes to sleep- 
ing through a lecture. On any Saturday night he 
can be found going strong in some dance hall in Hamp. 
But this is not his only accomplishment ; any one that 
took Rural Engineering S-.5, knows "Jigger" is an ac-

The man with the cigars. He always has a large 
supply of rope in his mouth. We think he missed his 
calling by coming to M. A. C. He should have been a 
comedian. Perhaps his wife had something to say 
about this. That line should get him by, though, if 
he should desire to try Keith's. You hear him coming, 
you see him, and now you don't. That is "Heinle" 
going by in his Ford Bug. Zip — gone. We inherited 
him from the four-year course, which in turn got him 
from Ohio state. He's a Buckej'e (not meaning incu- 
liator) and for this reason his specialty, aside from 
.\nimal Husbandry, is Ohio agriculture (pronounced 
I'hiu, in a careless sort of way).

"Wes" is a product of the wilds of Millbury. The 
monstrous mills of Millbury disturbed Wesley's peace 
of mind, so he migrated to "Aggie." His greater aim 
in life is to become a MAX; and while somewhat dubi- 
ous about his ability to succeed at first, we are now sure 
he is succeeding fine. If "Wes" isn't in the Drill Hall, 
he will be found studying how to grow onions. He 
usually takes shoe leather express to North Amherst 
every Saturdaj' evening for a conference with one of 
the leading onion growers of that section. There is 
an equal chance that she may be an Argentine, a Por- 
tuguese, or a Greek.

Wendell's chief difficulty at "Aggie" has been to 
know what Jones was meant when he was called upon

"You've got to show me, buddie.'' 

"Al" took unto himself a wife since he came among 
us. It's a good insurance to keep a man in at night 
and attending to his books. One trait is obvious : when 
he doesn't believe what you say, he says so regardless 
of whether he knows anything about the subject or 
not. He doesn't care too much for straight lectures. 
He much prefers text-books and claims he could absorb 
more knowledge by the latter method. Chance to in- 
augurate a crusade, "Al," and get into "Who's Who." 
Our educational system sure needs some improvements 
and there is no better way to become noted (and popu- 
lar) than by advocating changes in anything.

"Larry" is one of the hardest workers for the class.

hear him expostulate at times one would asssume that 
he lives on the hill. His favorite expression is, "Now

Waitsfield way. One of his war cries was, "Bisbee, 
get my papers." "Tuck" has a habit after the period 
bell rings to get his watch out and pray that the Prof, 
won't show up tor at least ten minutes. "Tuck" was 
one of "Ma" Goodwin's hash slingers and well liked by 
all. We give "Tuck" credit for coming down out of 
the hills to get an education; and the Class of '24 
wishes him every success.

"Wedding is destiny and hanging likewise." 

Clarence J. Turffs, commonly known as "The Sheik," 
is the idol of the high school girls who are young and 
foolish. He is frequently seen promenading about 
town with a girl on one arm and leading Poco, his 
police dog, with the other. Pop Peaslee maintains that 
Poco is the attraction; for the girl's sake we hope so. 
His experiences have been many and varied; he stud- 
ied nearly everj'thing in high school, so that his course 
here has not increased his knowledge to any great ex- 
tent. We are a bit skeptical about Rudolph's future 
because he has the honor of being the laziest man in 
the class.

"A mans a man for a' that." 

We expect that in about twenty years the multi- 
miUionaire, "Sandy" Walker, the nationally-known 
Pomologist, will invite the class to hold its reunion at 
his spacious estate in Westboro of which Worcester 
and Boston are suburbs. If silence was golden 
"Sandy" wouldn't have to do another stroke of work. 
We expect that if "Sandy" gets married, that the girl 
will have to do the courting, for Franklin was never 
seen with a girl nor heard to talk about one.

"Don't wait until your ship comes in — row out and get it." 

Laurence S. White, better known as "Larry," is a 
quiet, easy-going lad. We saw little of him the first 
year, but he has come to the rescue several times this 
year, and opened the doors at Stockbridge Hall on chapel 
mornings. He returned from placement training with 
a motorcycle of the antique type. After performing a 
few unusual and thrilling mishaps, the motorcycle dis- 
appeared. "Larry" has held down one of the janitor's 
positions in Stockbridge Hall all the year, and has an 
unusual faculty for determining his marks before any 
one else in the class. It is rumored that he is engaged 
to Cromack. He has one of those laughs which spreads 
rapidly, as he is very ticklish. He spends his spare 
time up at the corner or ojjposite the Experiment Sta- 
tion, winking at the pretty female tourists. His smile 
causes many an accident. Whenever you see the ini- 
tials L. S. W., it may mean either "Larry's Sweet 
Woman" or "Love-Sick White"; but according to 
him it is Laurence S. White. "Larry" is a good stu- 
dent and well liked by all. We predict that "Larry" 
will be very successful.

"/ over my hooks my head do hend, 
But do I study? No, pretend." 
"Whitie," better known in and out of class as 
"N. D.," spends most of his time in Pelham. Most 
any time he and his inseparable chum "Scotty" can be 
seen headed for some place of special attraction. 
"Whitie's" favorite song, "They Are AH Sweeties," was 
well chosen, and he is proving it, too. He is known 
to his classmates as a good-natured, hard-working, 
student, and has their best wishes for success. What- 
ever you do, "Whitie," don't study hard enough to 
make yourself sick; and remember, no matter what 
jail you spend the summer in, we all wish you every 
success and hope you are prosperous.

' 'A ivindow is usual 

But a Ford is the dope 
For burglars to function 
Or lovers elope." 
We almost lost "Slim" this year. He quit place- 
ment training this summer to resume his old trade, 
plumbing, but found it was too much for his health. 
So he's with us yet. He didn't return until the winter 
term so he must finish next year. As a student, 
"Slim" was always up with the top ones. His most 
notable trait, however, is gum chewing. He never got 
thirsty in class. Mutt and Jeff were a common sight 
about the campus. But upon approach it proved to 
be "Slim" and his side-kick Joslin. When he returned 
to "Aggie" he was quite a propertied man, having ac- 
quired a farm and a Dodge. And we understand he is 
soon to acquire a wife. Prosperous summer, "Slim." 
If he is as persistent in clearing up farming problems 
as he was in having things properly explained in class, 
he'll get the eggs all right, "won't you. Kid?" That last 
remark sounds familiar!

"You may be fast, hut you wont last, 
There is a broken heart for every light on Main Street." 
Ai-nold Clarkson, alias "Phi Beta," for whom the 
wilds of East Street and Pelham have no terrors, has a 
specialty of Midnight Tea Parties. In class he is a 
wizard; his quizz is always done first. We predict 
great things for this young farmer, when he opens up 
that ice cream plant in the wilds of Reading. If he 
doesn't care to follow up the dairy work, his knowledge 
of Animal Husbandry and Agronomy, with the aid of 
his Dairy Suit, will qualify him for a street cleaner's 
job in Reading.

"/ a?n one of those who will use the devil himself with 

"Glen" couldn't see the idea of coming to "Aggie" 
alone,so he got hitched the same month he entered the 
course. Having wandered over a good portion of the 
U. S. and Canada, we don't blame him for wanting to 
slow up. For fast walking, "Glen" wins the belt. If 
you ever walked with him, or tried to, you sure stepped 
some. He comes the nearest to wearing the fabled 
seven-leagued boots of any man we have ever met. 
Good nature should be his middle name. He's a come- 
dian. His shaving stunt on the front steps of Stock- 
bridge when initiated into A. T. G. was a star perfor- 
mance. "I — got — 'em," he says. Together with 
Thompson, he's contributed quite substantially to the 
pool revenue in Memorial Building.

"For thy sake, tobacco, I'd do anything but die.'' 

Geoi'ge Harris is well known in the Dairy circle. He 
is a great humorist. Between him and Mike, the Dairy 
majors are kept in an uproar of laughter. His favorite 
question is, "Gotcha dairy done?" He came to us with 
his mind made up on poultry, but being married he had 
to lajf off the chickens. After seeing the benefits and 
pleasures of the Dairy course, he chose to be an ice- 
cream man. ''Georgie" is always thei-e with a package 
of Fatimas or a cigar if you want it. He also has a 
flivver and any one going his waj' never has to walk, 
although many times they have to get out and push.

"A wise skepticism is the first attribute of a good critic." 

We didn't get in on the ground floor and connect 
with much info about Morrissey. Anyway, he's from 
the big city, as evidenced by his pronounced New York 
broadening of the labial consonants. Being a Hort. 
major, he, too, was exposed to park germ, but it has 
not as yet broken forth in a virulent form. One job 
that he had in view last year for placement training was 
the contract for building a grandstand around a golf 
course. He lost the job, however, as he was underbid 
by a competitor, thereby missing a chance to clean up. 
It was said that his plan for the work was the best sub- 
mitted. Better luck next time. Having missed a part 
of his placement training, he returns to "Aggie" next 
year for another term.

"For sufferance is the badge of all our tribe." 

Now we ask you, as gentlemen, how can we make a 
so-called "personal write-up" on a chap who spends the 
bulk of daylight hours in French Hall, and those of 
the night in the same approximate location, flitting 
hither and yon throughout the greenhouses'? This we 
do know, "Sol" is always doing something, always on 
the job, and absorbs all the Floriculture floating around 
in a loose or semi-detached form. "Sol" has a nifty 
little filing device which he claims should be in every 
home. Put it there, "Sol" !

"That earliest of early birds — the milkman." 

"Tommy" had a hard life this last year. He lived 
somewhere between Amherst and Worcester on the 
Belchertown Road and must have started the night 
before in order to get to morning assembly at 7.30 
(when he got there). Occasionally he miscalculated 
and got to 8 o'clock class on time, but was usually 
pretty accurate, hence late. Sometimes he pushed his 
flivver through some deep snow to get there. Aside 
from running out of gas occasionally or having a flat 
tire without a spare, he hasn't many more troubles 
that we know of. He is a regular family man, having 

a young for which reason he has been called the 

daddy of his class. Congratulations, "Tommy"! 
More power to you. We almost forgot the rubber 
boots. These were quite a common sight around Stock- 
bridge and other halls during wet weather.

"Learn while you earn — a motto, not an ad." 

"Al's" career at M. A. C. has been rather checkered. 
He entered in the fall of 1921 and should have gradu- 
ated with the Class of '23, but due to prolonged ab- 
sences for sickness, he fell by the wayside and now we 
welcome him to our class as a fellow student. Work 
got so pressing at his farm on Belchertown Road that 
he had to leave us last winter to attend to his place. 
Business before pleasure, he surely has made some- 
thing of his young farm and we hope it returns the com- 
pliment. At the last town meeting, the good people 
of Amherst voted to help build "Al" a state road, and 
he should have a good roadside stand trade when that 
is completed. "Al" couldn't always agree with the 
Vegetable Gardening Department on some of their 
teachings, for which reason he wasn't the most popular 
student who took that subject.

Junior Classsi i|is;torj> 

Shortly after our arrival in September, 1923, we held our first class meeting 
under the direction of the Student Council. At this time the following officers 
were elected: President, Ernest Hayn; Vice-President, Mary Johnson; Secre- 
tary, Marshall Moulton; Treasurer, Clyde Hartney. 

This first meeting, with its large attendance and with the enthusiasm shown 
by all the members, was characteristic of other meetings held during the year. 

Later we elected our permanent officers with the following result: President, 
Bernard Snodgrass; Vice-President, Mary Johnson; Secretary, Clarence Law- 
ton; Treasurer, Donald Harrington. 

We were afforded an opportunity to become better acquainted with each 
other and also with the seniors at a reception and dance given to us by the senior 
class. We later returned this dance to show our appreciation. During the 
winter term we co-operated with the seniors in giving several dances, which were 
very successful. 

Our class showed up well in athletics this first year. Seven of our members 
were on the football team and, when the basketball season came, we furnished 
three of the players on the regular team. Several also went out for hockey. 

Not only do we possess considerable ability in athletics but possess ability 
along the musical line as well. Our class is represented in the two-year orches- 
tra and also in one of the best college orchestras. 

Time has passed altogether too quickly this term and although we are all 
anxious to start out on our Farm Placement Work, we are going to miss the life 
at Aggie and will look forward to the time when we shall return next fall. 

We also wish to express our appreciation to the senior class for their kind- 
ness in co-operating with us in our various activities and for their assistance in 
helping us to get our organization started. We wish them all success in their 
work after graduation.

^tubent Council 

To this body of conscientious and open-minded men is due much of the 
respect which is accorded the Two-Year Course on the campus by the other 
groups and by tl;e faculty. 

By the freshmen it is regarded with mixed emotions at first, but as they later 
become acquainted with the Council and its purpose they are among the most 
hearty supporters. 

The Council has alwaj^s taken for its special task the job of setthng any dis- 
putes which may arise and to see that each and eyery man has a fair chance to 
prove his worth to the course. 

Membership is limited to eleven men except in the winter term when the 
Ten Weeks' men are asked to send one of their members as a special representa- 
tive to act on any matter relating to this group of short-course students. 

The Council has always received the support and respect of all the Two-Year 
men and much of its success is due to this support. 

Without such a spirit among the student bodj^ such a group of law makers 
would not be able to exist, and it has added much to the reputation which the 
course enjoys that it is a self -governed group. 

As Director of Short Courses, Professor Phelan has given the Council much 
timely advice and counsel, without which their task would have been exceedingly 
difficult if not impossible. 

It was he who fostered the Council in the early years of the course and to 
him is due the prestige which it has at present. 

We wish to extend to him at this time our thanks for all that he has done 
to make the way easy and our burden light. 





otial iictibities^ 

When we came here in the fall of 1922 as "green freshmen," the seniors wel- 
comed us with a dance in order that we might become better acquainted. With 
the aid of our active Social Committee we returned the dance a few weeks later. 
During that time many pleasant parties and "bacon bats" were enjoyed by vari- 
ous groups of the class. 

The winter came and we had a lot of snow which enabled us to have a few 
sleigh rides and snowshoeing and skiing parties, in addition to dances that were 
held in the Memorial Building. With springtime our pleasures ceased and we 
all started to the farm for six months. 

Upon returning in the fall, after six months of hard labor, we, as seniors, 
gave the "dear little freshies" a dance. Showing their appreciation, the young- 
sters returned the dance with great success. Many other parties were enjoyed 
by the class throughout the term. 

Due to the fact that there was but little snow and the ice was very poor this 
year, we were unable to enjoy many of the outdoor sports. In this way we 
missed many good times that we might have had otherwise. 

When the time was drawing near for freshmen to leave for farm placement, 
the two classes co-operated to give a dance in honor of the members of the foot- 
ball team. The Memorial Building was daintily decorated with balloons, and 
carnations were given to the girls who enjoyed the festivities of the evening. 

It is impossible for any of the members of the class to forget the many social 
events that took place during their stay here at "Aggie." We are all awaiting 
the time when we can join together in reunions after we go out to take up our 
life work.

The Two-Year Dramatic Club was organized in Januarj'-, 1923. It has 
been one of the foremost organizations during the past year, endeavoring to carry 
on the work which the Class of '23 had so well begun. 

The first meeting was held soon after college opened in September with a 
surprisingly large percentage of the members of the Class of '24 present. At 
the second meeting of the club, a large number of juniors joined, among whom 
were eight young ladies who proved a great asset for the Dramatic Club this 
past year. To create interest in dramatics a meeting was held for the purpose 
of reading plays. By invitation of Professor and Mrs. Phelan, the club met at 
their home. At this meeting the club was entertained with the reading of two 
one-act plays in which Professor Phelan and Professor Thompson took the lead- 
ing parts, Mr. Blanchard, Miss Merryman, and Mr. Snodgrass reading the minor 
parts. The interest shown at this meeting was so great that a second meeting 
was called and the attendance was greatly increased. Plays were read by Mr. 
Cole, Mr. Conkhn, Miss Griswold, Miss Johnson, and Mr. Joslin. The interest 
was so keen it was decided to begin stage work immediately, and try-outs were 
held from which five one-act plays were cast, three of which — "Moth Balls," 
"The Medicine Show," and "The Head of Romulus" — were presented first at 
Bowker Auditorium and later at the Unity and Methodist churches. A commit- 
tee was appointed and selected "Believe Me Xantippe," by Frederick Ballard, 
to be given as the commencement play. 



Ctuo=Pear Clubs^ 

On looking over the records we find tliat tlie clul^s are nearly as old as the course, 
for two of them, the Kolony Klub and the A. T. G., were founded in 1919, and the 
third, the S. C. S., was founded in 1920. 

The latter was originally called the Alpha Sigma Delta, but the present name 
was adopted in 1921. 

Both of the two clubs first named have their membership limited to men only, 
while the third is for women. 

This year the A. T. G. had an active membership of 48 men composed of 28 
seniors and 20 freshmen. Its alumni number close to 80 men. 

The K. K. had 39 men as active members this year and its alumni number 
also are in the vicinity of 80. 

The S. C. S. had an active chapter of 15 women and of these 3 were seniors and 
12 were freshmen.

Jfootball 1923 

The Two-Year football team, fall of 1923, played a schedule of five games. 
The response to the call for candidates for the team was mostly inexperienced 
men. It was indeed a difficult task for the coach to develop a team from such a 
squad of men. From the standpoint of scores, the season could hardly be called 
a success, as all games were lost. Three of the five teams played, however, 
were distinctly out of the class of the Two-Year team, as far as material and 
experience goes. The team improved steadily throughout the season and in 
their last two games played very creditable football against teams of much greater 
ability. The squad was small and all through the season never numbered over 
twenty men and at times dropped as low as fourteen. Only one member of the 
squad had played enough the previous year to make his letter. 

Captain Bisbee and Pickard displayed a fine brand of football throughout 
the season. The season was a profitable one inasmuch as some good material 
has been produced to form a nucleus around which to build our 1924 team. 

Cyrus Pickard was elected captain and Douglas Harrington, manager, for 
the coming season.

Paigfeettjall 1924 

Nineteen men answered Coach "Em" Grayson's call for basketball candi- 
dates on December 3, 1923. After a few days' practice we had what looked to 
be a very promising aggregation from which to pick a team. There were four 
candidates from last year's team and a very promising group of freshmen. As 
time wore on, however, the number gradually diminished until there were but 
twelve men who reported regularly for practice. The first three weeks of Decem- 
ber were spent in a great deal of hard practice, followed by a two weeks' rest 
during Christmas vacation. The squad came back after their rest ready to take 
up their training in preparation for the first game with Amherst High, which took 
place January 9. All were eager and confident that we would send the high 
school boys home with a defeat. 

The team lined up as follows: Merchant, r. f. ; Crooks, 1. g. ; Howe, c; 
Towne, r. g. ; Hartney, 1. g. 

The absence of Captain Parsons was keenly felt, he being unable to play 
because of a severe cold. At half time we were leading the high school quintet 
by five points, but with a sudden burst of speed in the last few minutes of the 
game they were able to overcome our lead and left the floor on the long end of a 
39 to 36 score. "Em" worked diligently to iron out some of the rough spots 
which showed in the Amherst game, with a marked improvement showing in 
each succeeding game. Though the season was not a success from the stand- 
point of scores the team displayed an excellent brand of basketball, always 
playing as a team and not individually. Probably the most outstanding game 
of the season was the Worcester North High game. The game was close through- 
out and at the final whistle the score stood at 20 all. At the end of the first 
overtime period each team had added two point to the score. The second over- 
time period brought forth many thrills and an excellent exhibition of basketball 
by both teams. "Wes" Howe contributed two points for our team in this period 
which tied the score at 24, with but thirty seconds to go. Gallant of the Worces- 
ter team shot the winning basket from mid-floor, taking home the victory.

Coach Ball sent out a call for baseball candidates around the middle of March 
and about thirty men reported. After a week of indoor practice "Red" took the 
boys out of doors; he also cut the squad down, keeping only the best material. 

The first game was played at home with Sacred Heart High, which ended with 
our opponents on top with a 9 to score. 

The following week we played three games on consecutive days, winning all 
three. The first of these was played with Northampton. "Jim" Blue starred with 
a home run, bringing in three runs. 

The first out-of-town game was played with Palmer High. Due to the loss of 
our captain and first baseman we lost this game, but only by two runs. 

One week later Worcester North High came to Aggie only to be defeated by a 
score of 13 to 8. This was our third game, ending with a 13 score. 

Sacred Heart High was our next opponent. Although the Two- Year aggrega- 
tion played an excellent game we lost by one run. 

The following week St. Jerome High visited the campus. We were defeated 
again by a score of 6 to 4. "Ev" Miller was our star in this game, striking out 12 

May 31st brought Deerfield Academy to our campus. The score was tied in 
the sixth inning and no one scored until "Runt" Clarkson won the game by a 
squeeze play in the last of the ninth. 

Our last game was played with Westfield High. We came out on the short end 
of a 9 to 1 score. The Westfield pitcher seemed too strong for our boys. 

We all hated to see the season end so soon. We had many good times and the 
joy of playing together will long be remembered.

When Cole slapped Prof. Glatfelter on the head thinking that he was slap- 
ping Peaslee. 

When Peaslee told Prof. Strahan to get away from his desk in none too 
pleasant language thinking he was talking to Prentiss. 

Heard in Agronomy 

Blanchard (studying varieties of corn) — "I've got poor ears." 
Walker — "What's the matter, can't you hear?"

Bedtime story. You build the fire

you any breakfast. 

Science has a new substitute for 
tea and coffee, but restaurants have 
been using one for years. 

Modern politeness consists of a 
man offering his seat to a lady when 
he gets off the street car. 

Our most famous rich American 
hunters are chorus girls. 

Much coffee was injured in Detroit 
whan a bomb wrecked two coffee 
houses, the cofTee probably being too 
weak to run. 

Tactful Que.stioner 

A beautiful young widow sat in her 
deck chair in the stern and near her 
sat a very handsome man. The wid- 
ow's daughter, a cute little girl of four 
or five years, crossed over to the man 
and said: 

"What's your name?" 

"Herkimer Wilkinson," was the re- 

"Is you married?" 

"No; I'm a bachelor." 

The child turned to her mother and 

"What else did you tell me to ask 
him, mamma?" 

Needy old women will be given the 
chorus girls' jobs in Germany. Sher- 
man spoke a mouthful. 

Gifts with Advice 

Ed Purdy was writing to his son in 
college: " — and you kin remember, 
Ebner, that college bred doesn't mean 
a four-year loaf. With vest and other 
regards. Pa." 

Professor — "You seem very 
sleepy. Were you out last night?" 

Student — "I had to sit up with the 
baby last night." 

Professor — "Oh, I see. How old 
was the baby?" — Exchange. 



A Few Only 

Stranger — "Rastus, do the people 
who Uve across the road from you

Rastus — "Dey keeps some of 'em, 

Trousers were Frayed 

"Coin' in that house over there?" 
asked the first tramp. 

"I tried that house last week," 
said the second. "I ain't going there 
any more." 

'"Fraid on account of the dog?" 

"Me trousers are." 

"Trousers are what?" 

"Frayed on account of the dog." — 

At the Zoo 
I asked the elephant 

How fast a rabbit ran; 
"I can't tell you," he said, 

"But think the pelican." 

A Receipt 

"What are you waiting for?" said 
a lawyer to an Indian, who had paid 
him money. 

"Receipt," said the Indian. 

"A receipt," said the lawyer, "a 
receipt! What do you know about a 
receipt? Can you understand the 
nature of a receipt? Tell me the 
nature of one, and I will give it to 

"S'pose mabe me die; me go to 
heben; me find the gate locked; me 
see 'postle Peter; he say, 'Indian, 
what j''ou want?' Me say, 'Want to 
get in.' He say, 'You pay A that 
money.' What me do? I hab no 
receipt. Hab to hunt all over hell to 
find you." 

He got his receipt. 

The Indians claim that hats make 
the white men's heads bald, but they 
fail to explain why many of them are 

"I'm doing this on my own ac-
