We have attempted to make this volume of the 
Shorthorn the most interesting and valu- 
able to its subscribers. We hope our 
work has not been entirely in vain, 
and that novi' and in future 
years this Shorthorn will 
recall many happy

IN MEMORIAM 

Life was sweet to her 'cause of the friends she had made 

And the things which in common she shared; 
She wanted to live, not because of herself, 

But because of the people who cared. 
It was giving and doing for somebody else; 

On that all her life's splendor depended. 
And the joy of the world, when she summed it all up 

Was a new friend made, ere day had ended.

The Two Year Course in Practical Agriculture was established by the 
State Legislature early in 1918, the first class entering M. A. C. in Septem- 
ber 1918. 

The course was designed primarily to fit young men and women for 
life on Massachusetts farms. It aims to give them a chance to specialize 
along some chosen line, and then offers a general knowledge of various 
other branches of farming. For major courses Animal Husbandry, Poultry 
Husbandry, Pomology, Vegetable Gardening, Floriculture, Horticulture, 
and Dairy Manufactures are off'ered, with Domestic Science courses for 
the girls. 

The time is not all spent at the college, for during the spring term 
and summer of the first year, a farm placement training period is required. 
Under careful supervision this important part of the work is carried on, 
and now counts more heavily towards graduation than formerly. Begin- 
ning last year the time was extended to a full six months, so fall classes are 
now resumed in early October. The second year, students continue classes 
for another term, graduating in June. 

Athletics and other forms of recreation are participated in. Football, 
basketball, and baseball teams are maintained and a schedule arranged. 
As yet we have no varsity hockey team but class games are played. This 
year, for the first time, our clubs were included in the interfraternity 
basketball schedule of the college. 

The Two Year students have their own social functions. In addition, 
they join with the four year students in supporting the athletic and non- 
athletic activities of the college. 

In the Kolony Klub and the A. T. G. Club the male members find all 
the good times, dignity, and friendships which go with such organizations, 
while the women have the S. C. S. to aid them in their work. These clubs 
all play an important part in creating a spirit of helpfulness and goo^ 
spirit. 

Classes in the short course are conducted separately from those of 
the college course; a separate budget being provided by the state, all 
expenses being paid from it. We enjoy the privilege of having college pro- 
fessors instruct our two year classes, and some two year instructors handle 
college classes. 

A Student Governing Body is elected, consisting of representatives 
from both the first and second year classes. This group looks after fresh- 
man rules and aids in maintaining a high standard of conduct. 

As we the class of 1926 leave Aggie and the Two Year Course, we wish 
to express our appreciation to all those who have made our work at the 
college possible, and give them our assurance that we will prove the value 
of the course in years to come as other graduates are now doing.

Many are the good turns these young ladies have done for all of us._ 
The Class of '26 as a whole takes this opportunity of showing thejr 
appreciation for the many kindnesses they have received from them in 
one form or another. 

Someone who has helped make our path at Aggie a smoother one, we 
wish to remember them as our friends.

Ollass iitatnru 

OT such a very long time ago, one bright September day, we 
found ourselves heading for Amherst, a town about which 
many of us knew little. Let that be as it may, we all succeeded 
in finding the Social Union Room, where thru the able guidance 
of Miss Mercier, Miss Martin, Miss Schuler and others, our first 
program was made out. 

After this event, classes and the endeavor to keep a trouble- 
some freshman hat on became our main difficulties. Occasionally 
President Murphy of the Student Council would lecture on 'Obeying the 
Rules' or Mike Hartney would attempt to reap support for the football 
team, but like all freshmen we were so green that action was a bit slow. 
Among other things cam.e club and social activities. A night on the 
burning sands, was part of initiation menus dealt by kindly Seniors. 
Several Friday evening dances were held. Then came our first stumbling 
block, the finals. 

Soon after New Years found us starting out on the winter term. We 
had become accustomed to the life and were profitting greatly. Frequent 
visits were made to Mr. Viets' office with the result that Aggis was forsaken 
after the winter term for our period of placement on a farm. 

Emerging from a most beneficial six months' ex-Qerience, we, the 
Senior class returned to Aggie again, very nearly 100% strong. As it 
was our turn to take the initiative we organized at an early date, electing 
Charley Parker to fill Chick Potter's place as President, Betty Rowell to 
again serve as vice-president, Janet Whitcomb to continue writing a bit 
about nothing, and MacCulloch to succeed Hayden in handling our cash. 

As our predecessors had done to us, so wa did to the freshmen. A 
little advice now and then, 'a little razzing' too. plus a fairly strict enforce- 
ment of the rules showed them who we were. Starting with the customary 
M. A. C. C. A. reception we became acquainted with our frosh. Then came 
the dances. As Seniors we enjoyed the rushing season of the clubs, gave 
liberally of the paddle as we had so freely received it, and begged matches 
and Life Savers to the best of our ability. The football season brought 
another good team on the field captained by Ted Johnson. 

With the winter term came another period of study which was helping 
to round us into trim for our work after graduation. As sidelights came 
a very successful Football dance, the usual ten-week dances, and hops 
sponsored by the A. T. G. and K. K. The Shorthorn staff which was well 
under way had us DOse for our pictures in the 'M' building. The basket- 
ball team captained by Hal Parsons gave a good account of itself. As we 
had done, the freshmen left us at the close of the term. 

Starting the last lap of our "school days" we felt somewhat alone but 
cur pride took care of that. Now came the baseball season which was 
ours for the first time, the team headed by Ernest F. Riley. Plans 
for the coming events and Commencement exercises took up all spare time, 
until finally the term, which as previous ones had flown quickly, drew to a 
close. As all Seniors we were given our certificates and cast out upon 
the tidf' of life to make a name for ourselves and the short course of old 
M. A. C.

K. K. 

Swansea, 1904. Vegetable Gardening. 

Sam came to us from Bristol County Agricultural 
School last fall to put the finishing touches on Iris educa- 
tion. Tliough young in years Sam is no amateur at 
growing the succulent vegetable and we can picture Mm 
in the near future, dragging away on a Camel while 
telling the neophyte on Placement Training just how 
it is done in Bristol County. A quiet lad and an earnest 
reader but when properly aroused we find an inexhaust- 
able fund of stories at his command.

A. T. G.; Class Orator. 

' ' Great Tilings Come In Small FacJcages. ' ' 

Al came with us to study the poultry game but very 
early demonstrated his qualities of leadership in our 
class activities, thereby receiving the title of Prof, from 
some of the class of 1927. Now that he has all the 
tricks of the trade packed awa_y in his head we know 
that he will be a great benefit to the community in 
which he hangs out his shingle.

' ' She stands like a clvUd on the edge of the world 
Brown eyes wide, red hair curled." 

Yes, that 's our baby. A strong east wind blew lier far 
away from the briny deep iuto the very settled agri- 
cultural district of Amherst. We understand that Bessie 
is an Home Ee. ma,ior but somehow she is getting very 
much interested in ' ' An. Hus. ' ', especially horses. This 
summer she became very much attached to some horses 
in Vermont and we hear that she is thinking of giving 
up "life in a cottage by the sea,"' and cast her lot 
with her equine pets among the hills of Vermont.

K. K. 

Grafton, 1905. Vegetable Gardening. Football (2). 

Audy is one of our few Veg. Gardening majors but 
whether he takes up this particular line of business 
after leaving college remains to be seen. Personally, we 
believe that we will be more apt to tind him in a roof 
garden than a vegetable garden. Wherever he goes or 
Avhatever he does after leaving us we feel sure that Andy 
will accomplish liis goal for tho quiet and unassuming 
around campus he has evidenced a spirit of "stick-to- 
ativeness ' ' that we all might well copy.

"Apple" 

Orange, 1906. Dairy Manufactures. 

"Doing nothing ivith a great deal of sl-ill." 

After graduating from New Salem Academy, Apple 
decided to come to Aggie. Here he soon found that 
automobiles have hard bumpers and besides we didn't 
want applesauce anyway. This is one of the few times 
that he has been brought to earth. After passing the 
rest of the year more carefully he went to the Brockton 
Producers Dairy, there he toiled for six long months 
and after returning to us soon learned to shoot hash 
with marked precision. We will not , predict anything 
certain but wish him the best of luck.

Everett, 1904. Horticulture. Treas. Dramatic Club. 
Senior play. 

Sherrold came straight from the arms of Everett High 
to M. A. C. where he at once became known for his 
marked dramatic ability. His freshman year he was a 
tender flower from the hot houses of Boston but Farm 
Placement came and with it a change. He is now a 
rough and ready "Jerry" with a chin that needs shav- 
ing every other week. Has been known to smoke, goes 
to the movies, and takes in all the dances but we cannot 
get it out of his head that there is a Santa Glaus. Be 
all this as it may we find Sherrold a throughly likeable 
chap.

"Belch" 

A. T. G. 

North Abington, 190'7. Animal Husbandry. 

It is rumored around campus that Belch is one of 
the best little ladies men in the far from meagre field 
hereabouts. As a freshman he waxed prosperous and 
fat but Placement training in Lee returned him to us 
a mere skeleton of his former self, and while he no longer 
has to pass the same place twice in order to cast a 
shadow he is yet far from being the buxom boy of his 
first year at "Aggie." As long as the cows are Guernseys 
he will gladly arise at 4 A. M. to attend to their every 
whim and if, in addition to a herd of this breed, the 
gods of chance locate him where tliere is a flock of 
pigeons also, Belcher will ask no more of this life. 




Cfjarlcs ^nbreta Jfletcfjcr Ploob 

"Andy" 

K. K. 

Pepperell, 1906. Poultry. Vice-Pres. K. K. 

Tall, fair-haired, with blue eyes, Andy stalks to and 
from his abode but not alone as a second look will 
reveal his abbreviated shadow, Al. Nash. When it comes 
to driving Flints he seems to be an authority on the 
subject and there is yet to be a Prof, who can make 
a slip without a quick check-up from Andy. Ask any 
of them. This lad, one of the ' ' Eiot Twins Inc. ' ' is 
an ardent admirer of the 30O egg hen and hopes to 
have such birds on his plant. Who knows, he may yet 
put Peppierell on the map.

"Brad" 

A. T. G. 

Seekonk, 1903. Animal Husbandry. Student Council 
3-4-5 ; Class Song Leader ; Two-Year Orchestra ; 
Treasurer A. T. G.; Shorthorn Staff. 

A two-year quartette was formed at Aggie for which 
Brad was chosen tenor, being a successful basso with 
a decided trait for harmony he filled the capacity ad- 
mirably. The Growlers Quartette vdW go down in the 
history of the Two Year Course as one of gi-and and 
glorious harmony. A social lion also both ' ' over the 
mountain ' ' and at the Abby where no party is complete 
without his smiling face and syncopated feet. Do not 
be surprised to hear of a cow orchestra or quartette in 
Seekonk one of these days. — Success.

' ' Farmer ' ' 
K. K. 

Worcester 1905. Animal Husbandry. 

"In the college he's a mild one 
Tarn him loose and he 's a wild one. ' ' 

Little did we suspect any application of the old song 
to Brownie until Placement reports began to trickle in. 
Developing a temperament rivalling a Prima Donna, 
Brownie's overlord never knew whether he would find 
'"Farmer" at work or just hitting out for home. 
Perhaps the milk was not from "contented cows;" if 
so that is the answer. Always individual in dress we 
wonder if this individuality was the reason for the eight 
mile walks home from the Wianno Club dances. 



Sugugtme S?um£iteai> 

"Bummy " 

A. T. G. 

iledford, 1904. Animal Husbandry. 

Has this apple cheeked lad been mis-cast? Turn to 
"Pom" Bummy and raise apples to rival your cheeks 
and your fortune is made. No mere cow can ever 
aijpreciate and be inspired by those cheeks as would 
a Baldwin or a Mcintosh. "Bummy" is quite a loyal 
member of the "keep yourself to yourself" club and 
tlio the Abbey and K. of C. hall call to him now and 
then his social complex is pretty well restrained.

"Cupid" 

A. T. G. 

Port Chester, N. Y., 1906. Floriculture. Football 1-2; 
Basket Ball 1; Student Council (1); Senior play; 
Shorthorn Staff. 

When ' ' Cupid ' ' struck campus it did not take him 
very long to become accjuaintpd. His ample proportions 
tilled the eye and his ready wit and humor made him 
a welcome member of any party. Football called to 
him for the first time and for two years he has been 
a substantial guaid and in this his last year he has 
become an ardent devotee of hiking, clamoring for more 
and bettei' tramping. Truly a college "eddication" is 
:i wonderful thing tho we can hardly expect even that 
to give us the experience of seeing "Cupid" mounted 
on skiis. From "Port Chester's Purple Press" we learn 
that the Burgevin greenhouses are to be renovated and 
that Paul Louis Burgevin, after a complete course in 
Floriculture, Landscape Gardening and Horticulture at 
Mass. Agric. College is to be the proprietor. 



iHurrap Austen Callanber 

' ' Cal ' ' 
A. T. G. 

Boston, 1902. Poultry. 

How ' ' Cal ' ' ever heard of the 2-yr. course in chickens, 
given at M. A. C, way dovra in Kouchibaguac, N. B. 
is a mystery. He managed to make his way to Amherst 
by the way of Toronto, Detroit and Boston. It is 
thought that he has shares in the electric light company 
from the hours he keeps his light going but ' ' Cal ' ' 
says that the letters he Avrites to Xorth Adams and Bay 
du Vin, N. B, require a lot of thought and light. His 
future location while uncertain is, we feel sure, in the 
vicinity of Lakeville, Mass, Despite a few handicaps 
' ' Cal ' ' has come through in the game and we all hope 
for liis success as a poultryman. 



^ibnep (garbncr Carl 

" Sid " 

K. K, 

Hatfield, 1905, Shorthorn Staff 1925, 
Animal Husbandry. 

"Sid's" major interest lies in beef cattle and he is 
known throughout New England and Chicago as a 
shower of fine Herefords and Sheep. As a classmate 
he is also able to give us many pointers on tobacco and 
onion culture and it is an acknowledged fact that Farm 
Management S. 1 could not have stood the strain but 
for ' ' Sid 's ' ' sound judgement and snoring. One admir- 
able trait (among many) is his adaptibility to circum- 
stances, for whatever turns his way "Sid" puts his 
shoulder to the wheel and keeps it there.

"Doc" 

A. T. G. 

Burlington, Vt., 1901. Dairy Manufactures. 

"// you want anything well done, do it yourself." 

' ' Doc ' ' came here to learn the dairy manufacturing 
business and also to play "Skipper" on the "Tooner- 
ville Trolley" over the Notch. Just because he is not 
interested in the co-eds does not mean that "Doc" is 
a ' ' she-hater ' ' ; girls, he is already spoken for. Always 
an excellent scholar and a conscientious worker we know 
that succes lies ahead of him unless the Toonerville 
Trolley kicks him when liis back is turned.

"Better late than never." 

If we only knew something about you we would en- 
deavor to proclaim it, but you are so quiet, a man 
of so few words, your secrets seem to be all your own. 
Coming from Northampton to study sows, irving joined 
us last fall. To those who know him he is a very likable, 
amiable pierson. He is so moderate, we wonder if he 
were ever ruffled, except of course, that strenuous even- 
ing of the club initiation.

"Stewy" 

A. T. G. 

Conway, 190-7. Animal Husbandry. 

"Stewy" hails from the metropolis of Conway where 
he spent his early career as specialty salesman in his 
father 's general store. He can sell anything from a 
cow's manicuring set to a pair of shoe laces. The coal 
strike does not worry Conway, for when Stewy learned 
to drive he got in enough wood to last the town for 
years. The electric poles were like magnets to 
him. At present Stewart's Ford rung finely, it hits 
on all four — rims. We expect to see Stewy on a large 
dairy farm and wish him all kinds of good luck.

to revolutionize the cattle world as soon as she shakes 
the Amherst mud from her feet. She doesn't know just 
liow but she is going to do it, and we know she will be 
a success and will not let her cows fall down on the job 
at milking time ("ask her about it). Sarah is one of 
tliosc efficient people who always knows what to do and 
how to do it. She makes a specialty of eluding finals, 
Init her pet hobby is pruning orchards in North Amherst.

HoUistoii, 1905. Floriculture. Prom. Committee. 

Everyone knows and likes Ealph for his quiet ways 
and his good natured attitude towards everyone and 
everything in general. He sure is a good floriculture 
student, probably because he puts a good deal of time 
on his studies and rarely "steps out." The reason for 
this is because he is very much interested in the ' ' Old 
Home Town," or rather someone living there. If Ralph 
in future years tackles the growing of flowers as he has 
the study of them we know that a verj' few years will 
find him at the head of his own floral company. May 
all the success in the world be your's Ralph.

mencement Committee Chairman. 

Blind dates were Henry 's hobby until he came to 
realize the ' ' Truth ' ' was best. Though the cares of 
putting our likenesses in the Shorthorn added greatly 
to the seriousness of this serious young man, he can when 
the occasion demands crack a .joke, second to none in 
appropriateness. As a main stay on the A. T. G. basket 
ball team and also a premier bowler Henry has demon- 
strated that his athletic ability is not of the ilexican 
variety. We wonder if he will continue to stick to the 
"Truth" so faithfully when he departs to Connecticut 
to chase apple scab from prize Mclntoshes.

This sunny lad from the far famed Berkshires, and 
Drury High, is certainly the embodiment of happiness. 
Whoever nick-named him knew what they were talking 
about as we have yet to see "Happy" with a grouch, 
an enviable reputation, truly. ' ' Happy ' ' is one of the 
handsome and efficient waiters at the ' ' Hash House, ' ' 
and tho he may be little he has a mind of his own. 
It takes a good man to change his point of ^dew. 
Of late we hare, noticed him taking the 6.30 for 
Hash house Sunday evenings. Where do vou go on 
Sunday, "Hap"?

K. K. 

Eiclimond Hill, X. Y., 1905. Poultry Historian. Short- 
horn Staff 1925; Student Council 1. 

"For lie's a jolly good fellow." 

Another member of the Growlers with the heavy voice 
to carry the anchor part (no! he was never dragging). 
' ' Del " is a quiet sort of chap and outside of his 
quartette and classroom activities is seldom heard from. 
The Abbey, Smith, or Mt. Holyoke knoAv him not as 
his heart is at all times at Richmond Hill. Poultry being 
his major he has devoted most of his time to the subject 
and we know that he will gain success.

■ ' ^4 wise man speal's little, l>ut listens well. ' ' 

Quiet, conservative Joe. Still those who have pene- 
trated the mask have found true friendship and a 
generous heart beneath. Joe is always ready to femile 
but he also thinks before he leaps. He may have ob- 
tained this particular characteristic from constantly 
emerging victoiiously from a checker game. He will 
give Plymouth and environs something to think about 
when he introduces his strawberries, ' ' Only eight dollars 
a quart! One at a time, please don't crowd."

Orange, 1903. Football 1. Dairy Manufactures. 

"I know my mind, and speak plainly, as it hids." 

Although a stranger to nearly all that a 2-yr. course 
implies it did not take Rosie long to get his bearings 
and rank second to none. Making the football team 
lii.s freshman year, when previous to that time it had been 
just a name, then very soon establishing a regular and 
frequent calling schedule at The Abby, and withal making 
rapid strides daily in liis major subject so that now he 
takes his hat off to no one as an ice cream maker par 
excellence. It was injury alone that kept Eosie from 
a back field jjosition on the Football team this year, and 
nothing can take from him the courage of his convic- 
tions which promjit his every word.

A. T. G. 

Sherborn, 1907. Animal Husbandry. 

"Ding" drifted to M. A. C. in the fall of '24. Not 
long did it take the boys to find where his interests 
are focused. Take a walk through the library at most 
any period of the day and there mil be the Master 
Mechanic, studying a " book on tractors or a copy of 
"Motor". "No horses on the farm," is "Dings" 
motto. You can see .just how firmly motors are im- 
pressed in his mind by his reply in class to a question 
regarding the intimate make up of dairy cattle, his 
answer was a masterly description of the "piston 
displacement" of a Holstein-Friesian cow. His "tractor- 
farm," as near as we can understand it, means buying 
in a Case and a Holt for foundation stock and raising 
little Pordsons. Well, Fulton was laughed at.

Waltham, 1903. Animal Husbandry. Dramatic Club. 

"Ed" is one of these never-falling, can't go wrong, 
always-on-time guys, the answer being, he comes from 
W-A-L-T-H-A-M, the Watch City. As chief engineer 
and stoker and also as organizer on the K.K. basket ball 
team Eddie has won renown outside his chosen haunts, 
and speaking as an obser^-er we have failed to notice, 
of late, any more ardent disciple of the Terpsichorean 
art than our "Ed." One of those cow punching animal 
husbandry men, we wish him all kinds of good luck 
when he leaves Aggie.

Ipswich, 1905. Floriculture. Dramatic Club. 

Not for the jazz orchestra does Foster 's trombone 
yearn; no indeed! His instrument is no raucous slip- 
horn, but a mellow toned trombone uttering sweet music 
worthy of an Arthur Pryor. Bill rates an unusual honor 
— a room in South College and a pretty keen room it 
is as all who have been in it can vouch. If your 
larkspur will not ' ' lark ' ' or your ' ' glads ' ' belie their 
name, break out your horn Bill and play to them and 
all will be as it should be.

There can be no question but that this "Joe Apple" 
will come thru handily, for he has had one season under 
'■Duke" Hazen, '24, and is planning to put in another 
season at Elm Hill Tarm. Of course it may be like 
Postum. ' ' There 's a Eeason, ' ' for his wanting to put 
in a second year in this vicinity, besides apples.

"Goldie" 



Dunstable, 1905. Vegetable Gardening. Dramatic Club. 

"There is no time lil~e the present." 

The lad humorously known as ' ' Goldie ' ' spends most 
of his time dodging the women for he is a tiue member 
of the "Tappa Haffa Kegga." Pinal examinations and 
the possibilities of flunking have always been the least 
of his worries. Quite a quiet lad, but he has developed 
an expertuess in the art of making a "pie-bed" which 
is almost uncanny. When he is not exereisin,g this 
gift he is taking us in at wliist, but what sweet revenge 
ivhen we take him out to bowl, tho frankly we feel that 
if Goldie could only devote the time to knocking them 
down that some do we would have to 'number that as 
another accomplishment, for he does notliing poorly.

This soft spoken, dark haired fellow, is, we are sure, 
Pair Haven's pride and joy. Tho sleep hangs heavy on 
his pent house lids and soporific Profs, find Tommy the 
first to succumb to their sleep inducing ways. It simply 
(jroves that he has the courage of his convictions — 
' ' tliere is no time like the present for a nap. ' ' However, 
when interest forces Morpheus into the background we 
are surprised at the keenness and assiduity with which 
he pursues knowledge to its lair and claims it for his 
own.

A. T. G. 

South Sudbury, 1907. Floriculture. 

Ealph and his parentheses strolled to ' ' Aggie ' ' to 
take up the study of raising plants with pretty flowers 
on them. Although he industriously slings hash twenty 
consecutive times a week he finds time to follow ' ' Hap ' ' 
to ' ' Hamp ' ' every Sunday evening and if you want to 
know the fine points about the fair sex just give Ealph 
the floor. Tho '"Bottle's" legless Big Ben rattles in 
vain every morning, we know that when he and his 
ice-tongs repair to Georgia to grow pretty posies the 
sun will find him already up and away.

Hayden must have money for he is always talking to 
himself in classes and when he is not doing that he is 
reaching out into the mental ether and pulling down 
extraneous questions. The Short Course office seems to 
be a very interesting place for Charles to visit, possibly 
for the same reason that he is often seen on the last car 
in from Xorth Amherst. Charlie tells us that he intends 
to raise apples and ' ' apples-of -the-eye. ' ' Frank you 
are, but more power to you.

This tall, lanky, big fisted and big hearted lad came 
here purposely to learn Dairy Manufacturing, but it has 
been said that he has specialized in ice cream making. 
For two years he has labored, getting out of finals and 
keeping the dishes clean at the Davenport, "Thus scoring 
three more points for the farmer." Under the able 
tutelage of Cepurneek '25 "Sterile" learned all the 
fine points of the game at the Pittsfield Milk Exchange

Here we have "The boy from Spring-field." Just ask 
liim. "Digit's" explanation that the razors slip was 
responsible for the loss of his moustache does not con- 
vince us, in truth, it was a woman's smile. A great 
.iflmirer of the great open spaces and B. B., no you 
are Avrong it is neither basket ball nor yet baseball. 
We wiB let Frank explain that one. Tho his outdoor 
sports seem to consist mostly in running to and from 
Hasli and then to the Abby his love for nature is 
genuine and we expect to see incorporated the Hess Snow 
Shoveling Co. of Alaska soon after his departure from

"Fighting His Way Through School." 

This sounds like the title to a Eing Lardner story but 
Humphrey was forced to sacrifice his amateur standing in 
order to insure completing his course. A doughty boxer to 
be sure but his quiet manner successfully conceals his .un- 
doubted ability in liis avocation. Having withstood the 
buffetings of unkind fate for two years and never- 
theless maintained a high grade in his class work we 
cannot but predict a speedy and sur6 success as a 
poultryman.

"Its love, its love, that makes the world go round." 

A .sailor's life is wild and free, with a girl in every 
I port. "Its wild all right," says "Jerry", but the free 
stuff was out aboard the good ship Nantucket. So he 
for.sook the navy and came to Aggie. He surely showed 
rare judgement in picking his major, for Horticulture 
is a vocation wliicji does not call for early rising and 
how he loves his bed o 'mornings. This may be warranted 
by his frequent visits to " Tlie Abby" where this dashing 
"Carl Campus" is always welcomed. With demon- 
strated executive ability and an abundance of "go-get- 
'em ' ' we believe that ' ' Jerry ' ' will be a success in his 
cliosen field of activity.

Ted first appeared on the campus in September and 
lost no time in becoming acquainted with the "Abbey". 
He very shortly followed tliis up by familiarizing him- 
self with the high-ways and by-ways of the surrounding- 
country side. Before coming witli us his specialty was 
Ayrshires and it Avill not be long before he is one of 
the recognized authorities on this sterling breed of 
cows. His fellow students have recognized "Ted's" 
true worth, witness his election as Captain of the foot- 
ball team and to the long term of the Student Council. 
Tho somewhat of a dreamer, his dreams all point fo a 
worthwhile goal, his own herd of Ayrshires and that 
cozy bungalow. Good luck, Ted.

Milton, 1906. Poultry. 

A quiet man indeed given to earnest pursuit of his 
studies, saying little but thinking much. On rare occa- 
sions "Swede" upon due provocation will call upon 
the tongue of his Fatherland .-ind floor all within hearing 
by an awe compelling flood of pure Swedish. At least 
we imagine it to be pure, for could Tage be other than 
that?

Fitchburg, 1904. Pomology. Dramatic Club. 

Ted is one of the most studious fellows in the class 
and being a bit bashful is never heard to speak out of 
turn. Last winter one of his fellow countrymen came 
to tliis country and burned up the board tracks with 
his speed. Ted, not to be out done by Nurmi, burns 
up the dance hall floor with his fancy stepping. 
Perhaps he may join hands with Anderson and run that 
roof garden with Ted as the dancing instructor.

Dramatic Club ; Senior play. 

Our second term at "Aggie" we were joined by this 
cheery blue-eyed maid who decided that Floriculture 
was her calling in life. She percolates around the 
"Abby" looking for fun and usually finds it. She 
is a good sport and craves much out-door life. Her fun 
loving nature isn 't the only side of her for she can be 
very wise and dignified as she shows in guiding the S. 
C. S. through it's years program. 

Barbara has many plans and some day we expect to 
find the sweepstakes at all prominent flower shows being 
carried off by the above mentioned young lady.

else was neglected — friends or studies — that letter had 
to go at all costs. 

Joe is a devoted Jersey admirer and plans to journey 
to the Island of Jersey to make a further study of 
these famous cattle. (It is rumored that he w-ill not 
go alone). Another thing of interest to Joe is bees 
and he expects to have some in connection with hite

But the major things were minor things.

And the mind of this particular man 
Consists of minors too. 
Yes, "Lou" has a wonderful mind. Perhaps it origi- 
nated in Boston ; the evening we played follow the

with them he has paved a long and friendly way. We

change of heart. 

This "Winsome Waif from the Witch City" loves 
his home town. When joshed about it he never fails 
to retort, "They may build ships in Peabody, but they 
have to take them out to Salem." 

Little need be said about Mac's scholastic standing. 
Suffice it is to mention the four following honorary 
degrees: T. D. S., B. Y. A., F. W. B. B., H. S. S. 
If Mac doesn't change his major again, we hope to

"Mac" is a son of the White Mountains, (where

tendencies. The main one is getting up early, which 
he finds very useful as he is janitor at Kate Walsh's. 

' ' Mac ' ' has taken the agency for a well known 
nursery firm, and has been very active as a salesman. 
He is already on the road to success as he has sold one 
hundred apple trees, which he purchased for the start 
of his own orchard. He has a fiery disposition and a 
mind of his own. Woe be to the man who intentionally 
runs against his grain.

Does anyone w-isli to know something about Po-

who spent his summer in Connecticut, found that Georgia 
isn't the only state where peaches are raised. 

Markert has often been heard to exliale in a long and 
convulsive sigh, "Gee, but this subject is too deep for 
me. '' ' We have noticed, however, that somehow he 
always manages to solve the deep stuff. 

He has never been known to have escorted any of the 
fair sex to a dance, still, there are suspicions that he 
has something in reserve. Will he succeed? Success is 
stamped across his brow.

"Andy" is one of our old stand-by's — one who puts 
liis Avhole heart and energy into every thing that he 
attempts. "Andy" likes nothing better than to go out 
and make a sensational attack on a man tAviee his size 
and receive a dozen or so broken ribs as long as he is 
doing what Red said to do and is "getting his man." 
Women do not interest "Andy," at least we have no 
evidence that they do. 

' ' Andy 's ' ' pet sayings are ' ' Hey Buddy ' ' and ' ' Bend 
Ovali". Maybe "Andy" wants to train men for base- 
ball candidates, thus the last saying is explained. 
' ' And}' ' ' expects to go out for baseball himself you 
know. 

This fellow spends most of his time either up at the 
A. T. G. or in the Library studying Animal Husbandry. 
We hope that he will invite us all down to a reunion at 
his farm.

forward a fellow as ever sailed forth from Dedham. 
A man of experience, one who has traveled consiijerably, 
he knows the ways of the world better than many of us. 
In the musical line just speak to him, for whether it 
be a banjo or a Jew's harp it's all the same. 

He must be good as an orchardist for he went all the 
way to Maryland for his farm placement training. 

We wonder why he so often elects to leave 
.\ndierst to spend the weekends elsewhere. This is none 
of our business, but it makes us envious just the same. 

Here's to you, George.

We are sorry to say that Amherst presents none of 
the thrills one might experience on the great plains of 
the west, but the Chevrolet company has done wonders 
in assembling a car which so highly satisfies the needs 
of such a famous horseman, cow puncher, and bronco 
buster as Duke. As an aid to all our friends, we feel 
sure that he is the best authority on which one of the 
Xew England standard nine is best to use for the 
liiopagation of a cover crop on the upper lip. His 
horticultural touch certainly would be valuable. In fact 
if you have any problem weighing on your mind, whether 
it be of local or world-wide interest, the solution will 
be gladly given you. Duke has it on his tongue's end, 
he never fails.

the opportunities at M. A. C so attractive that he has 
torn himself away from his beloved state for two long 
years. Although a Pom. major "Mac" longs for the 
time when each succeeding day means five hundred more 
white pine trees planted. We really believe that this 
boy from New Hampshire would ask nothing better than 
to sit down in the middle of a quarter of section planted 
solidly with Pinus strobi and there spend the rest of 
his days communing with his coniferous friends. In- 
cidentally ' ' Mac ' ' was quite a keeir student in Forestry

A while ago ' ' Mac ' ' came to us from distant Maine. 
He immediately acclimated himself away down town 
where the tall buildings and churches grow. He took 
up Flori. and Hort. and has a natural love for growing 
things in general. All the while he counted the days 
when back home again he would be. Just why we don 't 
know, but then, from our observations ' ' Mac ' ' would 
make a good liusband. He takes to everything with that 
unbounded enthusiasm of his and the pine trees will 
surely strut around when he gets back.

not seen much of her, at least at the Abbey, this year, 
for she has been keeping house for Tilly and her 
family. In this we hear that she has been very success- 
ful, tliey say that all look liappy and healthful. We 
understand that Alice liopes to have a — shall we say — 
"cosy little greenhouse" all her own some day. No, now 
don' t get the wrong impression not ' ' green ' ' house, but 
a greenliouse. She does not know just what is in store

To our list of quiet unassuming members we must not

his broad shoulders and stealthy gait. You wouldn't be

in forestry. Until lately Jim has been a bit shy socially, 
but we are glad to say that he has at last found him-

Banta by his classmates. He studied and worked with 
liens before he joined us, and whenever any discussion 
is in order, one may see him constantly in the fore- 
ground. Socially, this wee lad is on his toes. The 
Abbey, Mount Holyoke, and other places are all ac- 
customed to his visits, and the M. building may require 
a new dance floor if he stays at Aggie much longer. 
He is always jolly and good natured even in the face 
of a returned genetics quiz. We are sure that we will 
hear from "Benny" in the future, possibly as the first 
breeder to have a 365-egg flock average, or as a top-

The "Fairy" traveled the longest distance in his 
career when he dropped into Amherst in 1924. Consider- 
able enjoyment has been his, to spend, leisure hours 
with the ' ' local attractions, ' ' but occasionally he re- 
members the ' ' only one ' ' back home. This has been

trip this week end and by his frantic periods of saving. 
If Phil leaves ' ' Aggie ' ' with proof that Candytuft is 
not a confection and that Euphorbia is not a disease 
his time has been well spent. Visitors to Manchester, 
dont forget ' ' by-the-Sea ' ' will in later years find 
"Fairy" peddling daisies on the Manchester dry dock. 
Success.

Rockland, 1903. Pomology. Football 1; Dramatic Club. 

About the "Pomuiiest" of our Pomology majors is 
Bill. Not content with starting his placement training 
before the end of his freshman term Bill extended his 
practical experience long past the date, the tlioughts of 
which kept most of us going while demonstrating our 
practical worth. As an inspector of apples for the State 
William became a traveled, broadly experienced po- 
mologist so can we question his positive statements in 
class or is it to be wondered at that we designate him 
as our "Pommiest" Pomology major.

"He was always late on principle; Ms principle being 
that punctu-ality is the thief of time." 

Piouty is very much interested in the fuel situation. 
Whether they use hard or soft coal in Furnace you will 
have to ask him. We are inclined to think; hard. 
Socially; Avell, we will refer you to the girls of "Hamp" 
tlieir secrets to impart. As to classes, if they only 
started at nine instead of eight perhaps he would be 
on time. Prom the "Furnace" thou art; into the

"// I can only get going I'll do it." 

Prank really does not mean that at all for he is 
always "going" at something and doing it well. All 
ready he has made a start on his poultry business, not 
for iiim to take a vacation after graduating. "Puts" 
real pleasure in life is in perfoiming on the "traps" 
in the oreliestra and nobly does he do his share _ at 
tickling the ear and putting the itch in dance-itching 
feet. .

"Perpetually Good Natitred." 

Dick comes from the little hamlet of Draeut and is 
a product of the LoAvell High School. He is one of the 
midgets of the class and for this reason is known as 
"The Kid." His placement training was spent in Bed- 
ford and "vve understand that there is a special attraction 
which might take him back there after graduation. Upon 
no consideration does Dick believe in getting up before 
breakfast and this is why his three chapel cuts are al- 
ways taken early in the term. His cheerfulness and 
goodfelloW'Ship have served him to good advantage wliile 
lie has been iiere at Aggie, and we hope it continues for 
he is an all round boy.

Frankie lauded here in Amherst in the fall of the year 
of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and twenty-four 
with one idea — ^Success. He gave up selling shoes in the 
'Bean City' to become a farmer, but aside from all this 
we '11 tell you one or two of his adventures during the 
past two years. The jioor boy nearl_y lost his life in 
No. Adams when he narrowly escaped falling five stories, 
ask him. With a hockey stick he is pretty keen, but 
candidly admits that, "Football is no game for him." 
We all hope that Frankie does not take too many cuts 
after he gets on his own beef ranch. The best of 
success to you old man, also a new pair of khaki pants. 
See you in Stoneham !

Colrain, 1904. Animal Husbandry. 

"A man's condiwt is an indication to liis worth." 

Hail Busty, the sheik of Colrain, widely known in 
Springfield and North Adams. W. S. came to M. A. C. 
to learn all he could about Animal Husbandry in general 
and Ayrshires in particular, but he has also distinguished 
liimself as head waiter at ' ' Wildner 's eating empori- 
um. " When Worth goes to Springfield he travels light, 
two blocks of wood and an alarm clock. His rather dry 
humor and cheerful disposition have w'on him many 
friends during his two years at college. Busty intends 
to return to Colrain, the home of the "dry land farms," 
after graduation, and we wish him the very best of 
luck.

"Please go 'waiy and let me sleep." 
Sleep was invented for Betty. Her dream of a perfect 
existence would be, sleep — sleep — and more sleep. Not 
that her classes suffer — not at all. She merely eon- 
serves her energy. An ardent and conscientious worker 
of tlie AVoman's student council, she is also one of those 
people who ' ' walk with their heads in the clouds, and 
hope they won't stumble." An idealist. Sherborn 
provided a background for her farm placement last 
summer, and having partially reformed the inmates, she 
is going back in June to complete- the job. Betty plans 
to have a prize herd of Ayrshires, and some day Ted 
Johnson is going to find stiff competition in the show 
ring. We certainly wish her luck!

"Student" 
Manchester, N. H., 1893. Poultry. 

In Mayer we liave a hard working, diligent person who 
must solve the most difficult problem and take all the 
extra courses possible. A deep thinker, a thorough 
student, there is nothing in !iis books that goes over- 
looked. Whether it is figuring nutritive ratios or check- 
ing the spread of white diarrhea Safran is right there. 
Along Avith the poultry game Mayer has taken up 
automobiling. A few months ago we w-ere hardly safe 
on tiie campus walks, but now even his garage doors 
feel at home on their hinges, and our danger is over. 
Along with Ids studies here at Aggie, "Student" teaches 
a class in Hebrew at Holyoke, which takes him to that

record than Safran, who is a good-natured jolly fellow 
under all conditions.

"Great oalcs from little acorns grow." 
Groton can justly be proud of "our little RoUie." 
He has always been a willing worker for the class and 
the entire course. Pleasing of personality, an ardent 
backer of athletics, and a bluffer in tlie 'nth degree, 
is he. The "2 in 1" of the 2-year course, not shoe 
polish but a real manager, well liked by both the coaches 
and players. Then, too, in Rollie we have a promoter 
of the "Hop" and the "Charleston" who has the 
reputation of wearing out more shoes than anyone else 
on the campus. He has been christened the "Shrimp 
of the Dirty Dozen ' ' and is a very creditable member of 
that elite group With Guernseys his success can be 
assured and we all wish him the success he deserves.

Student Council 1. 

Here is one of our prominent Guernsey boosters from 
South Boston. He has been active in athletics, social 
functions, and love aifairs. During his freshman year 
he was inteiested in no less than a score of -women 
located at various intervals between Somerville and 
Sprinofield — including Amherst, but this year, well we 
just simply can't keep him away from Viet's office and 
— I guess that we had better let Charley tell the rest. 

Charley is also noted for his caiiabilities in pulling 
off successful banquets at Draper as head waiter. 

We cannot help but wish Charley the best of luck and 
we know that it will come to him.

" 'Tis better to be out of the world than out of style." 

Edith, though quiet, has made a place in the class for 
herself. Her wonderful sense of color and harmony with 
her decorative ability has often helped us out of a tight 
squeeze Avhen we did not know what in the world was the 
matter, but still the thing did not look just right. She 
also has designing ability and has lent her hand in 
designing the new S. C. S. seal. 

We shall be very much disappointed if some day in 
our tours over the country we do not run into Edith as 
the owner of a model greenhouse, perfect to the last 
detail. We are sure that she will tell all about her rise 
from a $10,000' investment to the present large and 
beautiful establishment. We are sure that the walls 
will be all decorated mth first prizes, as she has already 
showed us lier ability to win them.

Peabody, 1899. Horticulture. Base Ball Manager. 

Here is a chap from the city of Hides and Tallow. 
Before entering college to study roses Sully w\as engayed 
as clerk in one of the large leather concerns. Perhaps 
that is w-hj' he is so hard to beat. 

Instead of studying like the rest of us. Sully spends 
his time in reading the sporting' section, .and in visiting 
the Abbey, but in spite of this, final exams are entirely 
unknown to him. An apt scholar, a quick thinker, so 
true of the Celtic type, he is well liked by all who know 
him. 

Like his neighboring townsman, lie is another member 
of the Course Droppers League, having changed from 
flowers to grass manicuring. We hope that you reaUy 
have found just what your calling is now.

of only one real failure, but we must admit that when

still on our list of "woman haters." Should Babe 
change his mind in the future we certainly hope he will

famous, was her drawings — if you have never seen 
"Paul Revere" ride, just look on the back of our Co-ed 
horse-woman 's sweatshirt. It has his own personal 
sanction, so you must 'nt fail to see it. If Helen hadn't 
also had poetic genius, many an amusing incident on

links up with goat farming we hardly know, but we will

THE OPEN DOOR 

A Mournful Ballard of Bygone Days 
As sung bij Bessie Ames 
There was a place we used to know — 
At M. A. C. not long ago, 

When nights were damp — or nights were chill 
We used to wander up the hill. 
A shadow loomed up in the dark 
And said, "Here, kids, come in and park." 

Chorus 
Three nights a week — or more — or less 
I used to walk up there with Wess, 
We'd laugh and talk a while and then 
We'd laugh and talk some more again — 
We'd stay till ten o'clock or more 
Oh ! How I miss the "Open Door." 

Gone are the days — those open doors 
Have slammed ker-bang forevermore, 
Micro, Chapel, Fernald Hall, 
A cruel hand has closed them all. 
Now cold nights in the sleet and snow 
We up the lane to Cushman go. 

Chorus 
Three nights a week — or more — or less 
I used to walk there with Wess, 
We'd laugh and talk a while and then 
We'd laugh and talk some more again — 
We'd stay till ten o'clock or more 
Oh ! How I miss the 'Open Door."

From the Diary of A Shorthorn Brave. 
(Ed. note — Meaning a fresh Freshman.) 

The signal smokes from the surrounding hills sent out the message 
which caused the gathering of the various members of the povi^erful tribe 
of infant "Shorthorns" on the camping grounds at M. A. C. 

The incoming members of the tribe located their wigwams and soon 
were seen around the encampment wearing the headdress of a tenderfoot. 
Tho weak in strength the members of the tribe presented an impressive 
sight as they over ran the "Heap Big Hash" tepee eagerly searching 
for food. 

Around their first camp fire the young bucks and maidens selected 
their chief tans for their stay in camp. A ceremonial dance was soon given 
by the "Shorthorn Braves" in honor of the presence of the tenderfeet 
in camp. The first great trial came when one of the "Medicine Men" gave 
us a test of mental strength requiring the remembering of many ex- 
periences. 

Many wishing to become classed as "Braves" tried out their strength 
in games and some few were quite successful in their contests. 

Many more ceremonial dances were held and numerous tests were 
given the tribe by the "Medicine Men." Nearly all survived these ordeals, 
and worked faithfully toward reaching their goal of being classed as braves. 

At the end of the third moon the young bucks and maidens gathered 
their blankets around them and spread out over the great hunting ground 
to pass the final t3st which all must pass before being raised to a "Short- 
horn Brave."

The Student Council, the elected governing body of the students and 
their representatives before the faculty, heartily commends the high morale 
and tolerance of the student body in their problems of college life and 
activities. 

It is notev^'orthy that individually as well as collectively standards 
have been maintained that hold great promise for the coming years.

The fii-st dance, held shortly after the opening of the Fall term, was 
v.ell attended and the floor was taxed to its limit. The freshmen, to whom 
the dance was given, entered into the spirit of the occasion with a zest 
that assures their dances next year to be very popular. Although the 
ladies were outnumbered 2 to 1 still it was felt that "a good time was 
had by all." 

In January, a reception and dance was given to the Winter School 
group and many new acquaintances were made. We were honored by the 
presence of Acting President Lewis whose welcome hand and cheery smile 
made the "short" short-coursers feel right at home. 

The football dance, at which sweaters were presented to the warriors. 
was very successful from all standpoints. Director Verbeck not only made 
the presentations but offered his efforts as a movie camera-man with a 
picture of the 2-year — 4-year Frosh game and "shots" taken in various 
courses of required work. The hearty approval manifested of them must 
have been very gratifying to him for it not only proved his success as a 
"news-man" but showed his effort to make the 2-year course a more virile 
one by establishinr;' a living library. 

The committee takes this opportunity to thank the student body for 
their helpful suggestions and splendid co-operation as well as members of 
the faculty who so graciously served as chaperones.

DRAMATIC CLUB 

One of the early organizations of the Two Year Course was the 
Dramatic Club, organized in January 1923. It has been well supported 
and has had a remarkable career. 

Every June the Seniors have put on a professional play for commence- 
ment. During the winter term several one-act plays are given to aid in 
preparing the students for the commencement show. 

Previously the Dramatic Club activities have been supported jointly 
by the receipts at commencement and a special fund. As this fund is no 
longer available, and to assure a strong financial status, the classes voted 
this year to permanently establish a fee of fifty cents per term for each 
individual. This wall pay all the general expenses- and any extra receipts 
will be used for new scenery and other necessaries. Under the new plan 
each freshman receives three and each senior four complimentary tickets 
to the commencement paly. 

This year the club also voted to have a Dramatic Club Manager to 
attend to all the general management of the organization. 

Splendid support has been given the club by the freshmen and we are 
assured that they will carry it on with even greater success than it has 
experienced before.

IftHtnrti of tlt^ (Emu f ^ar Clubs 

The Two Year students early felt the need of sorhe organization to 
draw them together for companionship and social inspirations. With this 
end in view two clubs were organized among the men and one among 
the w^omen. 

Both men's clubs, the Alpha Tau Gamma Club and the Kolony Klub 
were organized in 1919. They started as merely social organizations but 
they have developed into really something more : — into fraternal bodies 
with a keen sense of loyalty and responsibility. Class spirit has been 
aroused and inter-club activities are carried on. The Kolony Club pur- 
chased a house on Pleasant street and this affords a splendid headquarters 
for their group, many of the member residing there. The A. T. G. Club 
make the entire top floor of North College their rendezvous. Here some 
twenty members reside, and the club holds its meetings. 

The women students also formed a society known as the Alpha Sigma 
Delta, but this was reorganized in 1921. It is now known as the S. C. S., 
due to the fact that Greek letter Sororities are not allowed in state institu- 
tions. Just a social club at the start, but this year the girls have taken on 
responsibilities of a more serious nature. 

The clubs thus far have fulfilled the needs for which they were created, 
and we hope that they will be of a great value to the following classes as 
they have been to us.

FOOTBALL TEAM 

As the Extension of our Placement Training period gave us only one 
week to prepare for our first game October 12, Coach Ball sent out a call 
for material to report a week early with a response which was very grati- 
fying as we had two full squads out for practice at the opening of school. 
As Captain Davis and Manager Cree did not return to school, elections were 
held and Johnson and Sawyer were chosen to fill the respective positions of 
responsibility, which they did most admirably. 

DALTON 6— M. A. C. 2-yr. 8 
This was our first real game as the score evidences and although 
Dalton scored first, Kelley, later in the game broke through their center 
and ran 40 yards for a touchdown, tying the score. From this point on 
the steady brand of football played by both teams prevented further 
scoring. 

SPRINGFIELD COMMERCE 0— M. A. C. 2-yr. 12 
Previous to this game the word had been passed around in Springfield 
that we were to furnish Commerce a practice scrimmage. So it was but 
not for them as we scored one touchdown as the result of a sustained 70-yd. 
march down the field and followed with a well executed forward pass which 
netted us our second goal. 

M. A.C. FRESHMEN 7— M. A. C. 2-yr. 16 
A game to go down in history, truly. As the first victory ever won 
by a Two-Year team over the Freshmen and also as we have a permanent 
record of the high spots in the games, thanks to the Two-Year moving- 

76 




picture camera. Our first point was made on a safety which was quickly 
followed by a touchdown, by the freshmen and things looked black but 
responding to the cheers of the enthusiastic crowd the Two-Year team 
pushed over two touchdowns in the last minutes of the game. 
VERMONT ACADEMY 20— M. A. C. 2-yr 13 

This was a sightseeing trip followed by a game. The opposftion 
afforded us was not strong and the only reason that the score was not 
larger was because of loose handling of the ball which however did not 
prove at all costly. 

DRURY HIGH 14— M. A. C. 2-yr. 

Our first defeat, but at the hands of a strong well coached team. 
Altho hahdicapped by the loss of Kelly and Ryan through injuries Drury 
found our line mighty hard to penetrate, it being their superior speed in 
the backfield which carried them to victory. 

CONN. AGGIE FRESHMEN 8— M. A. C. 2-yr. 

This was the hardest game to lose of the three which went against us. 
Forced to play on a field literally under water the breaks were against 
us as they contributed materially both to the touchdown and safety which 
were scored against us. The fact that we made 20 first downs to their 
one shows that the breaks, not playing beat us. 

DEERFIELD ACADEMY 21— M. A. C. 2-yr. 13 

A fighting Two-Year team went down to defeat in their last game 
of the season. Behind by a score of 21 — at the end of the third period 
the team came back and Johnson and Kelly pushed the ball over for touch- 
downs. This team was the only one to score at first down against us during 
the season which speaks well of our line ; which was made up as follows : 
L. E. Burrill, (Capt. elect) ; L. T. Caffery; L. G. Burgevin; C. Lovejoy; 
R. G. Shelnut; R. T. Ryan; R. E. Viale, with a hard hitting backfield be- 
hind it; namely Q. B. Truelson; R. H. B. Tribe; and Massa; L. H. B. John- 
son, (Captain) ; F. B. Kelley. 

No little part in the success of this season was contributed by Manager 
"Rollie" Sawyer who gave of his time unstintingly and cheerfully and at 
all times could be depended upon to be where he was wanted and needed.

BASKETBALL 
Captain, Harold Parsons. Manager, Roland W. Sawyer. 

The basketball season started with about 30 candidates out for the 
team, and after playing several interclass games, daily practice began soon 
after the Christmas vacation. Under the coaching of Red Ball the team 
gave a good account of itself. A summary of the games foUov^'s : — 
Hopkins Academy 14— M. A. C. 2-yr. 12. 
A tough beginning to lose by one basket, but it showed up our weak 
points which was a great help. 

Turner's Falls H. S. 12— M. A. C. 2-yr. 23 
This was rather a fast game and our offense had increased appreci- 
ably since the Hopkins' game. The guards played well and West scored 
10 points for the Shorthorns. 

Arms Academy 15— M. A. C. 2-yr. 40 
The first game away from home, the team certainly made good as 
the score indicates. Although Arms scored first it made little difference, 
for Holland, our star forward came through with 26 points. 
Amherst H. S. 13— M. A. C. 2-yr. 20. 
Victory was sweet, for here was a team that had never been beaten 
by Shorthorns. It was anybody's game until the final whistle, close guard- 
ing by both teams being the outstanding feature. Holland, West, and Ryan 
did the scoring for the 2-yr. 

St. Josephs 20— M. A. C. 2-yr. 18 
Way up in Pittsfield, this was the closest game of the year, requiring 
an overtime period to decide it. Capt. Parsons did some excellent guard- 

78 



ing, while Ryan and Viale, both graduates of St. Josephs, played well. 
The team certainly will remember this game. 

Sacred Heart 32— M. A. C. 2-yr. 17. 

A heart breaker from start to finish, with an inexperienced referee, 
the team was greatly handicapped. Holland, our star forward, was put 
out via the foul route in the first few minutes of play, and Massa our hard 
playing utility man played an excellent game in his place. 

Northampton Commercial College 18 — M. A. C. 2-yr. 24 

After playing on foreign floors for several games this team was met 
in the Drrill Hall. It was an exceptionally good game, Holland scored 
13 points. 

Drury H. S. 34— M. A. C. 2-yr. 14 

This trip to No. Adams will be a landmark in the memories of those 
who made it. With plenty of snow we rode about 175 miles to go 75, and 
did not arrive until five minutes before the game. While in poor condition 
to play, this championship team did not completely squelch us. Holland 
did all the scoring for the 2-yrs. 

Clark School 37— M. A. C. 2-yr. 33 

Arriving back from Drury at 1 A. M. the team played a good game 
with Clark that same night. As the coach was away Andy Massa took 
charge of the team. Ryan was high scorer despite an injured hand. 
Arlington H. S. 9— M. A. C. 2-yr. 36. 

Having traveled a good many miles after playing the night before, 
Arlington did not show up their best against us. The whole squad got 
into this game and gave a good account of itself. 

Holyoke H. S. 21— M. A. C. 2-yr. 13. 

Although we lost, out team showed up well against this outfit which 
clinched the championship of western Massachusetts. 
Cathedral H. S. 5— M. A. C. 2-yr. 13. 

Defensive play won this game for the farmers for they allowed the 
Parochial league champs but two baskets from the floor. Holland secured 
8 of our points. 

Greenfield H. S. 6— M. A. C. 2-yr. 14. 

Due to ineligibility. West was unable to play this contest, so Dutch 
Holland was shifted to center and Massa went in forward. The change in 
lineup and a strange floor could not hold a good team down. Holland 
scored all the points. 

The season ended with this game witch made a total of 13 games 
played with 8 wins and 5 losses. Probably this has been the most success- 
ful season that a Two Year basketball club has ever experienced. The team 
owes its success to its coach "Red" Ball, whose careful work showed itself 
throughout the season. The letter men elected Holland captain for next 
year and Felton manager.

As soon as the basketball season had closed candidates foi- battery 
started practice in the Drill Hall, coached by George Shumway. The man- 
ager called out the whole squad at the opening of the spring term, about 
30 reporting. 

The season started with a game at Greenfield. They triumphed 3 to 2 
after a close game which went 11 innings. Our battery was, Clark pitcher, 
and McCloskey catcher. The whole team showed up well, there being no 
errors made. Massa's and Riley's playing was outstanding for the 2-years. 

Belchertown was next encountered on the home field, a very poor 
exhibition of loose ball was given by our men. The score resulted in a 
10 to 4 victory for the visitors. Tribe sprained his ankle but finished the 
game out. 

A journey to the other end of the town was next in order, where the 
Amherst frosh were taken on. This game was featured by hard hitting by 
both teams, but timely hits by Amherst and several costly errors gave 
the Lord Jeff's a 9 to 3 win. There were men enough left on bases to even 
the score, but the hits to make them count never came. 

This same weekend the Aggie freshmen were played. Although out- 
hit by the 2-years, loose pitching and several scattered hits at opportune 
moments gave them a victory by the score of 10 to 3. Sawyer injured his 
hand in the first inning and was replaced by Truelson, who caught the 
remainder of the game. 

The following are the games scheduled for the rest of the season, and 
it is hoped that the team will show up better than in previous contests.

GRAY'S ELEGY IN THE M. A. C. CHURCHYARD 

Here lies Benny, sad to say 

At M. A. C. he passed away 

In delirium he was heard to state — 

She m-m-must've 1-laid b-bout n-ninety-eight ! 

Poor Elisabeth she is dead 
A gravestone up above her head 
There comes a tear to every eye 
As we look at the stone — and Cy. 

In this grave lies little Nash 
He died from something he ate at Hash 
Up or down? In which direction 
Went the "Standard of Perfection?" 

'Neath this stone so warm and cozy 
With plenty of time to dream, 
Sleeping sweetly is poor Rosie — 
In dairy lab. we made ice cream. 

We miss Sarah heaps and heaps 
As underneath this rock she sleeps 
Her thoughts and deeds so kind they were 
That even a cow once fell for her. 

He is gone — we must confess 
We all will sure miss Wesley Hess 
Bessie's sandwiches gave him a spasm 
And now he's only protoplasm. 

By this stone we pause and sigh 
For underneath friend 'Apel' lies 
The highway broad he tried to cross 
An auto hit him — Applesauce. 

Among these stones with countless names 
We see that of Bessie Ames 
To the pond she went to skate 
"Open loide ye golden gate!" 

— Helen Wood

"FAT" 

Who is it in our blooming class — 
Whose greatness ever will surpass — 
All other men of great renown ? 
Why, "Fat" — the biggest man in town! 

Who is it needs to have two seats — - 
To sit in, when our chapel meets — 
And three strong men to wedge him down? 
Why, "Fat" — the biggest boy in town! 

Who was it, on the team, they say — 
He sat on men and held them down — 
Who? — "Fat," the biggest man in town! 

— Helen Wood

Here's A Way to Make Money 

After Graduation 

In Your Own College Town 

TAKE this Flower Shop at Wellesley, Mass., for example. It 
is located handy by, just outside the college grounds. 
It wasn't so long ago that all there was to it was a plain little 
frame building, with some rather diminutive green-house'? latched 

to It. 

Now the shop is a most attractive brick building, with up to 
date greenhouses, and this show house opening right off it. 

You should see the way the college girls come here and buy 
flowers! Christmas and Easter week, the Western Union brings a 
private wire right into the shop, and has an operator on the job 
to take the Florist Telegraph Delivery orders that come from 
parents and friends, for flowers to the girls. 

From one of his rose houses alone, this man took $9,000 last year. 

Doesn't all this start you thinking? 

Man alive, where is there a business as healthy, fun-filled and 
profit yielding? 

Just the kind that to-be- wife-of yours would like. 

Had you ever stopped to think how many graduates are going 
into the greenhouse flower growing or shop business? 

Hadn't we better start in getting acquainted so you can have the 
facts. Write us. 

Ask us the hundred and one questions you have on your mind. 



If interested write to the Manager of our Serv- 
ice Department, 30 E. 42nd Slrect, New York 
City, wlio will give it his personal attention.

MONEY MAKERS 
FOR THE GROWER 

A Bean makes money and saves money 
for the grower every spraying L'ay in the year. 
It makes money by delivering continuous 
trouble-free service day in and day out straight 
thru the spraying season, insuring rapid thoro 
work, clean trees, big production, and clean 
fancy fruit — the kind that enjoys the best 
market and brings the top price. 

Low-Cost operation 

It saves money by its simple, sturdy con- 
struction, freedom from mechanical troublrs, 
the ease with which the grower can make my 
necessary repairs or adjustments, and the fact 
that any parts that become worn after years 
of hard service may be quickly, easily, and 
cheaply replaced. 

Long years of good service — long years of 
low'cosi semice — these make a Bean the best 
sprayer Investment for any grower. 

Good Service Everywhere 

We build a complete line of hand and 
power sprayers and offer the best possible 
service thru two complete factories (Lansing, 
Michigan, and Snn Jose, California) ; a com- 
plete stock of parts at many important cen- 
ters : and dealers everywhere.

Not the favorite or the one

Reserve for the last lap is 
important for people, too. 
Make sure of it through the 
Life Income Plan, which pro-

when nine in ten men begin
