We are striving to pattern the Shorthorn of 1925 after 
Shorthorns of the preceding years, believing that only in 
this w^ay may traditions come into being. 

The inculcation of new features will undoubtedly add 
to the value of subsequent publications, as ours does not, and 
we here desire to set up or to continue a temporary standard 
which may be raised as time and conditions will warrant. 

This autobiography of individuals and classes, for 
such it is, is designed to develop unity, build up tradition, 
afford some amusement and, later, to provoke reminiscence. 


To our friends:

acknowledge our humble thanks for the active cooperation 
of our present Director, the ideals and precedents of our 
former Director, and the invaluable advice, indefatigable 
zeal and real help of Miss Marie Mercier, Chief CIei;k of

our book had been a failure. We wish at this time to thank 
all of our other friends who have in any degree assisted 
in the development of this publication.

The two-year course was organized by the State Legislature in 1918 to give 
a more practical course than had previously been offered. This fulfilled a real need and 
two-year graduates are, at this date, holding important positions in New England 

This department now offers seven major courses, and subjects allied to these courses 
are offered in conjunction with them. 

This year it was decided that the six months placement training, which is an im- 
portant feature in connection with the Short Course Department, and which has been 
usually abrogated in the past, would better run its full course and count heavily toward 
graduation. This will necessitate the return of the prospective Seniors at a later date 
in the fall. 

Two clubs for the men and one for the women have arisen and provide the human 
contact so necessary in general education. 

Recreation and amusements are enjoyed by the two-year students. Football, basket- 
ball and baseball are our recognized major sports and we hope to add hockey to the 
list. By identical payments for non-athletic amusements we enjoy excellent concerts 
which are provided by the college. 

Last year it was our misfortune to lose one who has been the Director of Short 
Courses since their inception. Professor John Phelan has gone to Michigan Agricultural 
College with ELx-President Kenyon L. Butterfield and we now have in his place. Director 
Roland H. Verbeck, a M. A.C. graduate of the Class of 1 908. Mr. Verbeck bids fair 
to ably take over the many duties of his position. 

It is our privilege to assist m starting activities which may develop into traditions 
in later years and we are sure that we express the sentiment of this graduating class when 
we say that we will do our best after graduation to make this course worth something 
to the citizens of Massachusetts.

Everything happened at once when we arrived here for the first time in September, 
1923. After an address of welcome in Stockbridge Hall we were marshalled to French 
Hall where Longley, Paddock and Duke Hazen told us what was what and what 
wasn't. As a result the next day saw all of us (?) wearing our prescribed head covering 
and saluting all people who looked as tho they knew more than we did. My arm still 

Ernest Hayn was our first temporary Class President and was superseded about 
one month later by Bernard Snodgrass who left us at the end of the winter term. 

Our first year was a creditable attempt to locate ourselves in our studies, and 
few dropped out for any reason. 

Our six months' training was not without a beneficial effect, especially on those to 
whom work on a farm was a new thing, and we returned in the Fall, Seniors. We 
missed our older brothers at that time as we miss our younger ones now. 

Class Officers were elected. Earl Breckenndge was elected Class President: 
Janet McGregor was chosen to help him do nothing: Dorothy Chilson was considered 
worthy to sharpen pencils and it was the opinion of the class that Donald Harrington 
should pay for them. 

We went thru the usual formalities of giving a reception and dance to the Frosh 
and received one in return. A similar dance and reception was tendered to the ten 
weeks' students in the winter term and was reciprocated. Our dance to the Football 
team was a huge success and was attended by a number of the Varsity team by 

At a later election Earl Breckenridge was chosen to be Class Orator at Commence- 
ment Day exercises, Ivory A. Hall to be Class Prophet and Harold K. Ansell as Class 
Historian. The writing up of the Class Elections was entrusted to Rebecca E. Merryman. 
Their performance at Commencement was very creditable. 

It is not strange to those who understand, that such a brief history can be of 
extreme interest to us, but never can we forget our wholesome associations with our 
class mates, our teachers and friends at the best college we know of, M. A. C.

"To he there or to be late, that is the question." 

Charles the 13th said, "The only happy man is he 
who has found his work-" Randolph has found his 
and we think that he knows more about all kinds of 
chickens now than he did when he came here. Although 
he has not been much in evidence at social events, the 
work which kept him from attending will undoubtedly 
be the cause of his expected success.

"None but himself can be his parallel" 

Dutch is not interested in anything except dancing. 
Guernseys, women, Buicks, clothes, studies, baseball, 
hockey, etc. Having sampled the atmosphere of 
iM. A. C. for two years he might decide to come around 
again and stay longer. At present Guernseys loom 
large in the field of his ambition but more mature 
deliberation might result in almost anything, in that 
he has the ability to extract much from a subject if 
he will apply himself to it. We will not predict any- 
thing certain.

"A sadder and a wiser man 
He rose the morrow morn" 

Benn}' is a good fellow after he wakes up in the 
morning. Unfortunately his rising date could be 
earlier. That is probably one of the main reasons why 
he did not learn to milk on farm placement. He is also 
one of the reasons for the existence of four clothing 
stores in Amherst. His brain and feet are the import- 
ant functioning parts of him. We might predict a 
brilliant career for him after his expected continued 
studying at Cornell.

"The lady doth protest too much, methinks." 

He raises Holsteins and nothing else but. He took 
Carnegie by persistence and not by storm. One good 
thing which he will do is to revolutionize the Holstein 
breed. We wish the reader's opinion of the nerve of a 
chap who will take a dog into class with him and then 
run a mile to avoid speaking to a co-ed. He has a 
nerve all right but it must be of a different kind.

He had the patience of Job and was always late. 

Nurmi blew into .Amherst and Aggie on the run and 
he has been on the go ever since. If, reader, you should 
chance to wander among the orchards on the hill, and 
suddenly hear a long 0-o-o-o-h, Pro-o-o-f-f-, and see a 
blue-sweatered individual come stumbling along, you 
may rest assured that it is Nurmi, late as usual. Once 
it was reported that he was to be ijiarried to a blonde 
in Three Rivers but he was late for that too. We ex- 
pect to hear much of Berry's orchards in the future 
and the class wishes vou "Good luck," Nurmi.

"When I ope my lips, let no dog bark" 

Breck is to the Profs, what variation is to the 
breeder, at once their hope and bane. Their hope in 
that they expect to receive the correct answer to any 
question they may propound and their bane in that 
he should ask involved questions. Breck is disgusted 
when he obtains less than a ninety and his many learned 
discussions have earned him the title of Asst. Prof. 
His best work is done in Red Parker's orchestra on the 
trombone, it is rumored that he fell asleep in Rural 
Engineering one day. Breck deserves to make his way 
as he has worked hard and long.

"Extremes in Nature equal good produce" 

As the Class Optimist he was misnamed. In his 
club he is called the "Dissenting Vote." We trust that 
Buzz' terrible mistake in An. Hus. during his freshman 
year has been corrected. Although we understand that 
he is to take a position in Swift's packing concern when 
he has completed his course here, he claims that he is 
going to breed Holsteins as soon as he has made his 
first million.

Introducing the sponsor for the Broken Back Dance step. 

We will tell only the truth. He is lazy, likes the 
girls, has one in No. .Adams, makes wise cracks that 
don't get away so large in class, etc. Andy is a basket- 
ball player of promise, a baseball pitcher when he has a 
lemon in his cheek, and a bluffer in the nth degree. 
However, an optimist is always handy to have around, 
and Cep can see the bright side of a piece of coal. He 
will go to South America immediately after being grad- 
uated for the purpose of making ice-cream for export 
to the San Bias Indians.

"Turn away those cruel eyes, 
The stars of my undoing" 

A sunny smile and a ready wit has made many 
friends for Dot, both at the Abbey and around the 
campus. How one small person can accomplish so much 
in twenty-four hours is a puzzle to us all. Counting 
calories for "Joe Diet" is her favorite pastime. We 
hope to be putting in our order for her jellies at an 
early date, if she can bear to leave the potatoes alone.

"Greatness ,comes only to those who seek not how to

Probably that is why he is usually leaping about. 
Shorty likes the girls, though few of us know it. He is 
good-natured as is evidenced by the fact that we caught 
him breaking in a pair of new shoes for his cousin. He 
has two mottoes: "Copy and slide by" and "Cheer up, 
the term will soon be over." On account of a weak heart, 
we can only advise him to get married and raise 
chickens. We fully appreciate your handicaps, Shorty, 
and love you just the same.

A jump, a cough, it stops, it's dead — NO GAS. 

The illustrious people of North Brookfield banded 
together and sent two of their citizens to the Two-year 
Class of 1925. One of them, H. B. by name, was en- 
dowed with a flivver and therein lies my story. Many 
a cut class and missed breakfast can be laid to the door 
or other parts of that flivver. Sometimes it was be- 
cause the engine was cold, then again a flat tire, but the 
one unanswerable argument was— NO GAS. No girl 
can sav that she ever had to walk home when she went 
riding with Harold, because he never asked any to ride. 
Come, co-eds, testify. We understand that II. B. is 
going back to the old home town to show the natives 
why he majored in Pom- A gala day when North 
Brooklield comes into her own.

"growing them where they ain't." If anyone can grow 
trees, he is the one to do it. Of a rather quiet, fun- 
loving, easy-going disposition, he is a man for a' that. 
They do say that Frank is well known in Troy, N. Y., 
but a fellow must have some room to move around. 
Bennington, Vt., where he spent his time on farm place- 
ment, has a few lurid tales to tell about him and they 
have since started a girls' college there.

Jim is a real quiet boy, so quiet, in fact, that no

writes to Northfield Seminary, seven letters a week. 
What a pity the week is so short! We learn that Jim 
is to go back to the home farm and boss the job while 
his brothers do the work. That's farm management,

"You can't eat that." by which it would seem that he

We often surprise Rudy in dreamy moods, doubtless 
dreaming of the ones he left behind in Springfield. His 
chief delights are informals. women and art. Ernie's 
artistic talent has decorated many a slicker on the 
campus, and, incidentally, he has carved many a girl's 
heart, we fear. His future lies either in Landscape or 
Hollywood. Rudy always wears pink pajamas, lavender 
mules and a green night cap.

Fat is the oflicial information bureau of the two-year 
course. He knows every thing about everybody, plus 
their ambitions. He has been known to give out marks 
near the end of the term before the Profs, have corrected 
the papers. His weakness is "Good Grub." We predict 
a brilliant career for him, not as a poultry fancier but 
as a newspaper reporter.

His music hath charm to make the breast savage. 

You don't have to talk long to Johnny to find out 
where he comes from. He is continually telling about 
the Belles of Berkshire. John's laugh has no equal — 
we hope. He is valuable to a motor mechanic in that 
it requires the services of another mechanician to start 
the car after John gets through with it, thus making 
more work for the starving garage men. His voice is 
his outstanding feature. It stands out above everything 
in morning chapel. If Cadman or IVlcDowell were to 
hear him the market would be flooded with Indian or 
Chinese music.

much about this chap. He is always doing something, 
but we can't find out what it is. One thing is sure, he 
knows how to get by and maybe it is no one's business 
how this is done. We all have our trials. His ambition 
is to raise the 58th variety. He would like to raise 
celery or pick up rags for a living. He is now Assistant 
Housekeeper at the Abbey, which accounts for his usual 
smile. The smile -couldn't be laid to the fact that he 
lives almost next door to the Nut House at Westboro?

but not in their habits of growth. A deep student of 
sociology of the masses, he should do much good to his

recommend jazz music to the hoi polloi and everyone 
else. Good luck to you, Gordon.

Our history, I find, is rather short. When we first arrived at Aggie, we registered 
and began to find out what we had come here for. We were then addressed in a 
very friendly spirit and were taken m hand by a few of the upper class who read to us 
the rules that were to govern our conduct while on the College Campus. Some of us 
didn't like the idea of some of the things we had to do, only to find that if we did 
them we invariably forgot that they might injure our vanity, and from that time forward 
everything progressed rapidly. 

I think we may say, with no idea of bragging, that we brought good material for 
football team and basketball team alike. We were unable to furnish good baseball 
players on account of our having to go out, at the close of the winter term, for a period 
of six months, on farm placement, but we all expect to be back for next year's team. 

We have a large class with quite a good deal of pep, and after making all 
the statements which I have made, I think the Class of 1926 will have to work harder 
than it did last year in order to have more to talk about when we publish our Shorthorn.

tubent Council ^ttibities( 

It is the aim of this body to correct, if necessary, the actions of all two-year 
students on the campus, to promulgate good feeling between all students and to so con- 
duct itself that it will be respected by all. 

In spite of some good-natured raillery, the Council is so regarded and has en- 
deavored, in its suggestions and actions, to display fairness. 

The possibility of unpleasantnesses arising from its actions is always present and 
has been avoided only by the intelligent tolerance of the students themselves for which 
we take this opportunity of expressing our thanks. 



Social ^ctibities; 

The Social Committee has had quite a bit of work to do this year and we have 
all enjoyed their efforts to make each function a success. Since all entertainments are 
paid for from the treasuries of the classes acting as host, it has not proved as expensive 
as the enjoyment derived would have warranted. The class wishes to extend a vote 
of thanks to Ivory A. Hall, George Frieh, Ernest Hayn, Miss Madelon Keyes and 
Miss Rebecca Merryman. 

The dances were; Senior Reception and Dance given to the Freshmen; Return 
Dance by the Freshmen to the Seniors ; Reception and Dance to the Winter School 
Students and a dance in return from the latter; a Football Dance given by both classes 
to the members of the Two-year football team and to the members of the Varsity foot- 
ball team by invitation. The Freshmen also enjoyed a reception and short dance given 
by Director and Mrs. Verbeck in the fall term, which was greatly appreciated by 
those present.

The Two-Year Dramatic Club is a unique organization. It is unique in that it 
always has money in the treasury, which is something to its credit, in comparison with 
some of the other organizations in the course. Though only two and one-half years 
old, it is already one of the important organizations in the two-year course. The Club 
was organized in January, 1923, and received popular attention from the outset. 

Several meetings were held during the fall term, last year, under the direction of 
the present officers. During that term several Seniors and a goodly number of Fresh- 
men were received into the Club. 

During the winter term two one-act plays were presented at Unity Church, 
Amherst, under the direction of Charles H. Patterson, Professor of English at this 
college. We owe much of our success to Professor Patterson, whose able coaching 
and direction has been of the greatest benefit to us. 

The "Full House," a three-act comedy, was the play chosen and presented at 
Commencement and was very gratifyingly received.

l^i^totv of tfje tE:ttio#ear Clutjsi 

As in all college life fraternities are appreciated for the purpose they have in 
providing social and intimate contact between classmates and schoolmates, so the 
Two-year course found it advisable to start two clubs. 

They were founded in 191 9, not with the idea of having any secret organization, 
but as ordinary clubs. Of later years some has doubtless been added to the initiation 
ceremonies, but they do not yet have any marked secrecy. 

The Kolony Klub has been able to secure a separate house which suited them, 
and the A. T. G. club has the matter under consideration. 

Since all the women live in the Abbey, they do not as yet need any separate 
house but the time may come when, owing to the increasing number of co-eds in the 
two-year course, it may be necessary to have a house, since the Abigail Adams House 
is not large enough to accommodate the large numbers of girls now attending college 
in the different courses. 

Soon after the organization of the two-year course in 1918, a sorority was 
formed, known as Alpha Sigma Delta. Meetings were held weekly. The fall 
term of 1921 saw the society reorganized and renamed, becoming known as the 
S. C. S. 

Meetings were held every two weeks. The purpose of the club was to promote 
sociability among its members and to help prepare them for a happy, useful, rural 
life. All two-year girls and special students enrolled for at least one year are eligible 
to membership. During the past two years the enrollment has included twenty-eight 
girls. The activities have been social and educational — initiation parties, dances, 
movie parties, dog roasts and talks on their experiences by Senior girls after their 
period of farm placement. Especially to be remembered are the evenings spent at 
the homes of Miss Hamlm, Agricultural Counselor for Women, and Miss Skinner, 
Dean of Women. 

The future of the club rests with the nine members of the Freshman class. 
With their spirit and enthusiasm, the prospects point toward an active, useful, grow- 
ing organization, well meriting the loyal support of the widely separated alumnae.

Jfootball 1924 

In response to Mgr. Harrington's appeal for football candidates, the season opened 
with an exceptionally strong squad reporting for practice. 

With the opening game of the season only a week off. Coach Ball worked hard 
to whip his material into shape. 

The team started the season by playing the annual game with the M. A. C. 
freshmen, which resulted in a tie score, 7 — 7. 

The following week the squad journeyed down to Palmer to tackle the local high 
school eleven. This aggregation, which later developed into the strongest school team 
in the valley, was held down to a scoreless tie by the Shorthorns. 

Worcester North was the next in line and went home on the short end of a 6 — 

Red Ball's charges went down to Springfield on Oct. 24th and romped away 
with the Central High eleven, 39 — 0. 

Handicapped by the loss of Capt. Pickard, who was on the casualty list, we 
bucked up against the fast Deerfield Academy squad, who had defeated everything to 
date. The game was a fast one, the score being 7 — up to the last two minutes of 
play, when a costly fumble gave our opponents a touchdown. Knowing that the game 
was practically lost, with only a few more minutes to play, the Deerfield team ran 
through for another touchdown, making the score 1 9 — 0. 

From the standpoint of games won, tied and lost, it might appear that the team 
did not have a very successful season, but the fact that the teams played were the best 
or among the best in their class, it would seem that the team played well. 

The playing of Capt. Pickard featured in every game he took part in throughout 
the entire season. 

A fine schedule is being arranged for the coming season which will be played by 
a strong squad of veterans who will return next year, together with any new material 
which may enter in the fall. 

Palmer, who was the strongest man in the line, received injuries in the game which 
made him retire for the rest of the season. 

With the sting of the previous defeat still fresh, and two of our best men on the 
sick list, the team was in poor shape when we met the strong Springfield Commerce 
eleven. The game was hard fought and full of thrills, but when the whistle blew, the 
visitors won the game, 9 — 0. 

The Conn. Aggie Frosh, who had beaten all comers including their own Varsity, 
played us the last game of the season. The Shorthorns suffered a defeat of 1 9 — 
at the hands of the "Nutmeggers." 

The 1925 team will be led by Davis, who was elected Captain. 

Harrington hands the reins over to Cree, who was elected Manager. 

Letters and sweaters were awarded at a Football Dance given to the team by 
the two classes.

Pagfeetball 1924=1925 

The basketball season of 1 924 was started late in the fall term of ] 924. In 
answer to Red Ball's call for candidates, 24 men turned out to help produce one of the 
most successful "Aggie Two-year" teams in the history of the course. The daily grind of 
hard practice was started at once and lasted until the Xmas vacation. 

Coming back after a two-weeks' vacation, the men were full of "pep." Practice 
was continued from the begmning of the term and lasted to the end of the season with 
beneficial results. 

The first game of the season was with Springfield Evening High. As evidenced 
by the score we came out at the small end of the horn. This defeat was more than 
made up by the fighting spirit which was instilled into the team by the defeat. 

The best game of the season was with Northampton Commercial College. We 
presented them with their third defeat out of eighteen straight. The "two-years" showed 
their mettle in the game as well as all the others and this battle will be remembered by 
many spectators for a long time. 

The season closed with the two-year club game, which resulted in a complete vic- 
tory for the A. T. G. Club over the K. K. Club. 

Captain Towne showed his ability as a basketball player by being one of the 
high scorers, an excellent commander and one of the best floor workers. Hartney, the 
other veteran, played his usual fast and snappy game which was always looked for by 
the spectators. Cepurneek played a fine game, being high scorer for the team. Parsons, 
Captain-elect for 1925-1926, showed great ability as a floor worker and defense man. 
Burgevin, another new man, could always be depended on to get the jump as well as 
to block many shots from the hands of our opponents. 

Hal Parsons has been elected to guide the destiny of the 1925-1926 team, and 
with Rollie Sawyer as a manager, there should be some regular games next year. As 
there are five or six men from A team to return next fall, "Hal" will have plenty of

The ) 925 baseball season was not as brilliant as that of last year, as can readily 
be seen by the scores. Considering, however, the material we had on hand and the 
hard schedule which had been arranged, the team did very well. 

The schedule called for nine games. After two weeks of hard training the team 
opened the season on April 28th, when they lost to the strong Amherst College Frosh 
by the score of 1 4 — 2. 

The following game was to be with Amherst High School, so a period of hard 
training followed the first game. The team showed a marked improvement in this game 
but were defeated by one run, the score being 2 — 1. 

In the Williston game of May 6th, the score was 1 — 1 until the eighth inning, 
when a rally on the part of Williston netted them the victory. 

Cummings and Dennett were the outstanding heavy hitters of the team as both had 
a very fine average. Montague pitched wonderful ball all through the season and it 
has been claimed by many that he is as good a pitcher as the Two-year teams have had 
for some years. Cepurneek was forced to quit in the middle of the season owing to 
illness and the pitching staff was considerably weakened.
