Our MOTHERS and FATHERS, who have so 

generously aided us in obtaining an education; 

and in reverence to them whose advice 

has been most beneficial, we 

afl'ectionaly dedicate this book 

as a token of our esteem. 


Mother, there is ne'er a day goes by 

But what I think of you and sigh. 
A thought of some loving kindness done 

That I might live as one who knows no care or trial. 

That tender smile and knowing look, 

For my most trivial desire 
Burned in my heart, and lo, my very 

Soul does fire to do not that which might your faith beguile. 

I sit and let the cool, calm breeze 

(Just strong enough to stir the trees) 
Sooth me, as you used to do. 

When in distress I turned to you. 

Years slip by, and I have yet to find 

Half your worth left here behind. 
'Tis enough for me, to know 

That while you lived, you loved me so. 

I have my life to live and work to do. 

And may they both show through and through, 

In everything I have said or done 

I have kept this in mind, I am still your son. 

Roland W. Smith, '27 


Who guides the growing child through life? 
Through that tedious path which onward leads; 
Who's knowing hand protects us with the right? 
Who teaches us the truth, the well known creeds? 

Who waits upon us patiently when small? 
Who listens to our every whim and cry? 
Who watches us with secret pride? 
Who tells us, we must not tell a lie? 

Who makes our pathways smoother ones? 
And guides us toward our final aim. 
Whose strength is ours at any time? 
Whose heart and soul, is ours, the same? 

To manhood, womanhood, now grown, 
Many are the trials of life we've had ; 
Yet still we turn to him with fondness. 
We come to him; just dear old Dad! 

Robert F. Hallbourg, '27

Class Btstorg 

We were the first class to enter Aggie late, but we soon found out 
the reason. It was to give the present Seniors a good six months to work 
out in and see how they might benefit from it. We freshmen were green, 
but we soon faded as we got. into the swing of class recitation and social 
activities. We wore the usual "frosh" caps and didn't mind it, much. 

The term progressed rapidly, the Club rushing season was rushing 
in more ways than one, and we attended football games and social affairs 
until we realized that the dreaded finals were fast approaching, and then 
we studied seriously. 

Returning after celebrating New Year's we were a rather serious lot 
but we became lighter hearted and mixed our studies and other activities 
in the right proportions. We began to give serious thought to our place- 
ment positions and were interviewed by Mr. Viets. We drew various 
assignments and went out to profit greatly, and we did. 

Coming back after six strenuous months, (count them) we were not 
the green bunch of the previous fall. We had freshman to lecture to and 
admonish, and they received much free advice. The class then elected 
"Al" Parker, president; Janet Weeks, as vice-president; "Al" Bullard, 
secretary ; and John Gibbs, the boy financier, as treasurer. Thus organized, 
we put on the field a good football team led by "Art" Burrill. A cap rush 
featured the Fall season, on somewhat of an organized basis. Let us call 
it a draw for the peace of all concerned. 

During the Winter term we all studied, we admit it, and we also 
enjoyed a very good series of dances, and entertainments. Mrs. Verbeck 
very graciously opened her home during the Winter months on Saturday 
afternoons, and many of us enjoyed her hospitality. The basketball team, 
captained by the "Flying Dutchman" Holland, acquitted itself well at home 
and abroad. 

After the departure of the "frosh," we felt somewhat deserted and 
began to realize that our "school-days" were nearly over. However, plans 
for baseball and graduation, together with our wondering where our 
future work would be, absorbed our attention. 

The Spring term, the most beautiful from any standpoint, was all 
too short, and we went out from the college, much the better for our two 
short years spent within her halls and always to cherish and never to 
forget old Aggie. 


(Alma Mater) 

Bay State's loyal sons are we, 
In her praise our song shall be, 

Till we make the welkin ring, 

With our chorus as we sing. 

With the tribute that we bring. 
Holyoke's hills prolong the strain. 
Echoing to the glad refrain. 
And the gentle winds proclaim 
Far and near thy peerless fame. 
Praising e'er thy honored name. 


Loyal sons of old Massachusetts, 
Faithful sturdy sons and true, 
To our grand old alma mater 
Let our songs resound anew. 
Cheer, boys, cheer for old Massachusetts, 
Give our college three times three ; 
Sons forever of the old Bay State, 
Loyal sons, loyal sons are we. 

For thy colors pure and bright, 
For thine own Maroon and White, 

Glorious victories we crave. 

Symbols of thy spirit brave. 

May they long in triumph wave. 
All thy sterling worth reveal 
Grant us nobler, manlier Zeal, 
So though borne by time's command 
Far beyound thy sheltering hand. 
Still devoted sons we'll stand,

Fat came to us from the Cape, where the balmy ocean 
breezes invite summer visitors. He intends to develop 
a Nursery which will supply the Summer homes on the 
peninsula with shrubs and flowers. He is a boisterous 
lad and often can be lieard from the fourtli floor of 
North College. We expect some day to liear of Fat

Dorchester, 1906. Poultry. 

Andy is high up in this world in more waj's than one. 
He is another of our famous poultry shaggers. He 
is a familiar sight around Amherst especially in his 
favorite parking space, tlie front seat of Al Plude's fliv- 
ver, but never goes further than Xortliampton. The 
rest of the time is spent very studiously and he was once 
rewarded by a prize at the annual Poultry Show. We 
predict a "long'' and happy life for Andy as he has 
lived "long" already and certainly his cheery smile and 
pleasant manners will help him over all the hills of life.

This cjuiet and studious lad came to us from the wilds

year transfering from the Smith School in Northampton. 
Socially Simon is not in the lime-light but we hope he 
will soon overcome this shyness. We know that Simon 
will be successful and we wish him the best of luck.

To our list of quiet members we must not forget to

Sweet Pea industiy when he starts iu business in Abing- 
ton. One of Don's favorite pastimes is getting ninety 
in Floriculture. ' ' Always see Atwood for the best in 
Sweet Peas," is his motto. Success.

Happy-go-lueky Dot has laughed her way thru two 
years of study. She is a good sport and is usually head 
over heels in mischief. Few have escaped her pranks. 
But Dot can be serious. Her heart is set on a tea room 
where she can use some of those famous Hort. Man. 
recipes. We '11 guarantee the name ' ' Laugh Inn ' '. 
Success to you.

West Eoxbury, 1905. Poultry. 

Jim came to us from Eoxbury to learn the latest 
methods of handling a first class poultry establishment. 
He is a studious chap and deserves all possible success 
when he leaves us in .June. His quietness and playing 
the game clean, have passed on to us memories that will 
never be forgotten.

Dutch came to this country from across the sea and 
has acclimated liimself here in a short time. He has 
always been a willing worker in class and for the entire 
course. We do not know whether his interests lie in 
Ayrshires or Guernseys but we know he will be success- 
ful in his cliosen line. We cannot help but wish Dutch 
the best of luck and we know that it will come to liim.

This clean-cut, handsome, rosy-cheeked lad is another 
who maintains that chickens are his sole aim in life. 
Brad is working through College at the Music Box, and 
as a waiter he makes a good poulti-yman. He tries to 
give us the impression tliat he hates women but we know 
better than this and we wouldn't be surprised if she 
hailed from Lee, also. His secret ambition is to gradu- 
ate with a degree from the Two-Year Course.

We are all looking forward to the Althea brand of canned 
goods, which will be the result of her courses in Hort.

haunts he has fast acclimated himself to tlie Amlierst 
surroundings, although he probably misses his afternoon 
sail around the Island. Perhaps his house cleaning ex-

to Connie by and by. We certainly hope so. Good

Bill is another boy from the Nutmeg State. He loves 
tlie little state and is ready to defend it at any hour of 
tlie night. Bill is one of those dashing dairy ma.jors 
and we are sure that the Nutmeggers are soon to be fa- 
voi-ed witli a new and better ice cream. He may even 
put Cromwell on the map. When Bill came to M. A. C. 
he soon found his place on the football team and has 
successfully bucked the line for us in each of his two 
years. We all appreciate his sportsmanship and feel 
tliat he will always be successful as a dairyman.

When Kay came from Dorchester it didn't take long 
for her clever wit and active ways to make friends every- 
where. Floriculture is her majoi', and in this she is one 
of the best ; although lately she has decided to change 
her vocation. "We know that she and John will always 
live amidst a garden of flowers. Kay has done much 
for the S. C. S. and the Dramatic Club. We wish her 
the best of happiness and success, and know that she will 
find it wherever she may go.

Brooke, one of the Belchertown ' ' Dodge Brothers ' ', 
comes rolling into Amherst everj' morning at 8:05 from 
the distant hamlet. We wonder Avhat the attraction is 
in Belchertown, we have never been able to find out as

we wish him the best of luck when he leaves Aggie.

Eoy surely has shown the best of judgement in picking 
his major, for Horticulture does not call for early rising 
in the morning and how he loves Iiis bed. However, we 
are told that he is interested in golf maintainanee work 
and when it comes to shacking the little ' ' pill ' ' around, 
he is right there. As ofhcial news reporter for the 
A. T. G. he has been very successful and should golf lose 
its present standing Eoy would make a fine Staff man.

future. Bux had seen very little of the country before 
he came to Amherst, but as Basketball Manager he has 
since journeyed to Lenox and North Adams and other 
distant points thus broadening his intelligence to a high

Fitzie landed from Leominster with lots of pep and 
loads of smiles and soon became acquainted and well liked 
by his class-mates. He believes in picking apples rather 
than picking hens but his only weakness lies in picking 
chickens, not that he hasn't good taste but never is con- 
tented for any great length of time. Perhaps there is 
a reason. He is never home, but it is not hard to find 
liim, just call Amherst 8770. He has many room-mates 
all not living at the K. K. house but that is nothing. 
We often wonder just where lie rooms the most. Best 
of luck.

Avas a man who spoke to everybody as a friend, he is a

Par off the mainland of America is a small insignicant 
island called Nantucket. It is here that John has spent 
his youthful days working in the only grocery store on 
the Island. Thinking tliat opportunities in animal hus- 
bandry were more favorable, Jolm took the once-a-week 
boat and landed in Amherst. It would have been very 
unfortunate if there never had been an Ayrshire breed 
of cattle, as Nantucket is admirably adapted for them.

Lyman came here fiom the little town of Conway, 
located in the hills of Franklin County, to increase his 
already bountiful knowledge of Animal Husbandry. 
Although lie appears to be rather bashful at times we 
suspect that if a certain member of the fairer sex were 
to appear that he would change our ideas somewhat. 
There is no question in our minds but that Lyman is 
destined to be a great success and will put Conway on 
the map when he gets his herd of pure-bred Holsteins

Dutch has graced our campus for two years. Even 
though lie haOs from Holyoke we can find nothing to 
mar his countenance. While on the basketball court 
he is known as none other than ' ' Dead eye Dutch, ' ' for 
he was one of the surest sliots on the 1927 quintet. Due 
to his generosity and congeniality, we expect big things 
of Dutcli in the future.

Ed bails from Dalton and came here to study Pom- 
ology, but not all his time is spent on this work. There 
are other attractions ! Ed is a fun loving lad and en- 
joys a good time. Although quiet in class, the baseball 
field re-echos with his shouting and laughter. We know 
that ire will be successful and we may some day find him 
growing pineapples on pine trees. Good Luck.

Bunny is another one of the poultry majors. During 
his six months of placement he was located in the wilds 
of Maine. We are wondering wliat the attraction is 
' ' down East ' '. Perhaps the ' ' chickens ' ' there havo 
added attractions. Bnnny is at least one person who 
knew just what he was up here to take, Avhen he strolled 
into the office to make out his first schedule, as he is a 
poultry enthusiast thru and thru. We are sure that we 
shall hear from Bunny in tlie future, and we wish him

Andy is the second of the "Dodge Brothers" who come 
into Amherst at 8:03 every morning. Altho Belcher- 
town is only eight miles away what can one expect when 
he rises at 7:45 a morning. His rather dry humor and 
cheerful disposition have won him many friends during 
his two years at College. Andy intends to go West to 
the wUd and open spaces after graduation, and we wish 
him the very best of luck.

The call of the wild was too great for Stan and hence 
he came to us from the cradles of Lynn and Shellcrest 
Farm. After placement spent in the great fruit region 
of Littleton he returned to us with his usual smile and 
good humor. He has made frequent visits to the Abbey 
and rumor has it tliat he holds an interest in a local dry- 
goods store, and also a certain Chevrolet. In his spare 
hours his mind is forever in the deep interests of promot-

the fair sex never interfere with his studies and he main-

It is rumored that a certain j'oung lady will be pleased

With such a good start he has won the good esteem of

The Fall term brought numerous receptions and dances. We tendered 
the Freshman Class a dance and to show their appreciation they gave us 
one in return. Although the men out-numbered the young ladies, everyone 
entered in to the spirit of things with a great deal of zest. Also during 
this term the Clubs held House Dances which were greatly enjoyed. The 
S. C. S. held a masquerade in the Memorial Building which was largely 
attended. The variety of costume and the beauty of decoration added 
greatly to the occasion. 

At the beginning of the Winter term the Student Council was host 
to the Football Team at a reception and dance. At this time the sweaters 
were given the players by Prof. Hicks. The following week a reception 
was given the Winter School students in order that they might become 
further acquainted with our group. During the month of January, the 
Dramatic Club was very fortunate in securing Miss Ammon, who read 
the play, "The Country Cousin." Toward the close of the term the members 
of the Winter School returned their appreciation to us in the form of a 
Minstrel Show and Dance. A most enjoyable evening was had, and the 
Show under the coaching of Professor Muller, won considerable applause 
from the Student body. Both the Kolony Klub and the A. T. G. Club held 
dances in the Memorial Building, which were largely attended. Another 
feature of this term was the election of officers for the Clubs for the 
coming year. This was done at the Club Banquets which were held at 
the Lord Jeffery Inn. 

The Spring term passed all too swiftly. Dances sponsored by the 
two Clubs were held, and the Baseball season was well under way. At 
last we were in the rush of Commencement and thus our social life at 
the college was brought to a close. 

We take this opportunity to thank those who so kindly acted as 
chaperones at these events, and to Mrs. Verbeck who so generously opened 
her home to us during the Winter months.

CLASS OF 1928

Will any of us ever forget our first vision of the Aggie campus, where 
we were to spend the greater part of our next two years in obtaining an 

I am sure we will always remember our first walk under the stately 
elms that line the campus highways, that eventful day we were to register 
as Freshmen in the Two Year Course. Through the efforts of the Short 
Course office we were very kindly assisted in obtaining a room and given 
all sorts of advice and directions which we were to follow during our stay 
at M. A. C. 

We soon found that we had for our help and guidance the Class of 
1927. We were their guests at a reception and it was there that we 
received instructions of what was to be expected of us and what we were 
to expect of our elders. We were told in an amiable fashion the usual 
"do's and don'ts" and also that we must adorn our "fair locks" with the 
usual Freshman hat. 

Now that we had become an organized group known as the "FROSH," 
we proceeded to give a party to our venerable Seniors, which met with 
great success. 

As time rambled on with our studies most in mind, we attended dances, 
and parties and soon Thanksgiving was upon us. Soon, however, the be- 
ginning of a new term found us still plugging and still enjoying to our 
utmost, these "school days." Fraternity dances, class dances, our football 
dance, all gladdened our happy days. 

Soon winter closed in on us and brought its sports. The Basketball 
and Hockey teams were well supplied with men of '28 and the spirit to 
V7in was uppermost in our voices that lent themselves to urge our warriors 
onward and give them courage. Then as the days began to lengthen, we 
were presented with a new surprise ; namely that of having Mr. Verbeck 
stand in chapel with a paper in his hand and state : "Mr. Viets would like 
to see the following, today." Ah, me ! It was to discuss our placement 
training and we were told that the time had come when we must go forth 
and obtain the practical knowledge that our course calls for. Was there 
a more frequent expression among our classmates than, "Where are you 
going to work this summer?" Then after talking it all over we decided 
that we had good jobs and were ready to "gird our loins and go forth to 
battle." Even now as I am writing this, I can hear the echos of my 
comrades' well wishes still ringing in my ears and I see also their 
determined faces as they set forth to do their best. 

And so we trickled off in little groups, some going one way and some 
another and each with a glad smile on his face. 

In years to come we will all experience that wonderful sensation of 
allowing our thoughts to wander back to old Aggie, and I picture my class 
mates sitting by the fireside, while they dream about what they did when 
they were initiated, the hat rush, the football games, our roommates, our 
friends, our Profs, our joys and sorrows, our dances and parties, and our 
studies and exams ; until the arms of Morpheus gather them and they slip 
into the land of nod with a sigh of contentment issuing from their lips.

It seems it is a custom 
Among the Shorthorn chaps, 
That on the day before Thanksgiving 
Will come the capture of the caps. 

However, the peppy neophytes 
Enjoyed the reputation 
Of never giving up the ghost. 
Under any situation. 

So thus ensued a bitter fight. 
Fought at a goodly rate ; 
When the high and mighty Seniors 
Met the Class of Twenty-Eight. 

The staid old Aggie campus 
Was the scene of many scraps, 
When the classes fought heroicly 
For possession of those caps. 

When the fight was o'er, the Seniors 
Had a lot of headwear, BUT 
Don't you forget it, they earned 
Every one they got! 


We amble slowly to the pit, 
Our faces stamped with awe. 
For we are to come in contact 
With that demon, Business Law. 

We are feed on definitions 
And words fit to crack the jaw; 
But our troubles have only just begun 
In dear old Business Law. 

On Thursday, we went to the pit. 
And on the board we saw — 
"Tomorrow there will be a quiz" 
In good old Business Law. 

So that is why we tear our hair 
And rub our knuckles raw, 
For Napoleon met his Waterloo, 
And we've met Business Law.

President, Janet Weeks

Treasurer, Dorothy Bennett 



As we review the events of the past year it is with a sigh of satis- 
faction that we leave to our successors the task of carrying on. 

We started our frosh off with a real initiation. A little later we 
tempered this with a tea. And before the close of the fall term we had 
successfully handled a masquerade ball. This was made possible by un- 
precedented support. 

In our meetings we took one step ahead by making them regular and 
with a definite aim. We introduced an entertainment feature which altho 
sometimes conflicting with dormitory rules served to enliven our gathering. 

By collaboration with the faculty women we were privileged to have 
regular swimming classes during the winter term at the Amherst tank. 

Many of us still remember the Abbey party winter term. We were 
joined by some of our Winter School friends who did much to make our 
evening a memorable one. 

This year for the first time the S. C. S. has adopted a pin. The design 
was a matter of long discussion and forethought and the result is most 
gratifying. This we recount as our year's greatest achievement. 

At a farewell party tendered the freshmen we tried to impart to them 
some of the ideals of our Sorority, some of its hopes and aims. We further 
wish to express a vote of thanks to every member whose splendid efl'ort, 
cooperation, and love made these activities possible. 



Listen, my classmates, and you shall guess. 

The nature and workings of S. C. S. 

"Will the meeting come to order," says fair Janet with a smile, 

And Althea seizes pencil and secretary's file. 

I wonder where can Izzy be, two bits will be her fine. 

Perhaps its worth a dollar to hear that fellow's line. 

Dot, the treasurer, smiles wisely, she's a knowing little lass, 

And takes care of "little roommate" in that awful Hort. man. class 

Mim's been rather quiet, still waters oft run deep, 

■'Three foot six, cute and bashful," to some one means a heap. 

The meeting's getting noisy, the 'phone rings in the hall, 

Connie's ears are peeling, it's that unexpected call ! 

Gently Ruth recalls the members to the topics of the day. 

That awful flori problem with which majors have to play 

Is waiting for solution. Blanche wants to know. 

Is a swimming class desirous of a bath on Tuesday night. 

Well, roommate Mildred likes fresh water, it's going to be all right 

Of course we want a party, the number'll be just right, 

And we'll have it in the Centre, shall we say on Friday night? 

It is a vote, Ruth Larned's thinking of some dainty sweet. 

For the way to reach a man's heart is a dietitian's feat. 

Joan's doing a lot of wondering as to whom she will invite, 

She broke a date with Shorty, 'twas just the other night 

And Eileen's counting quickly to get in one more walk 

Cross country. Yet two nights a week is rather common talk 

In the corner quiet Alice sits patiently by. 

Those dreadful An. Hus. rations must be solved for how and why. 

One minute ! Eleanor's stopped laughing long enough to say 

She thinks 'twould be fun if we could have a play, 

At next meeting. A good suggestion — A committee we'll now name. 

To make our next reunion a truly laughing game. 

Will Kay propose adjournment, her realm of study calls, 

No light is gained, mere darkness reigns, in some of Aggie's halls. 

What's this? Why, 'tis a meeting of the last remaining five, 

'Tis spring term nature's working our spirits to revive 

Our freshmen gone, some classmates shy. 

Good times to come, good times gone by. 

We've little left, and many a care. 

We wrote our page, we hope 'twas fair 

We'll carry on, staunch loyalty. 

Our S. C. S. we pledge to thee!

I. tl. (g. Scenes about Campus! 



Be it remembered that we, members of the class of twenty-seven and 
of the A. T. G. Club of the Massachusetts Agi-icultural College, Two Year 
Course, of Amherst, County of Hampshire, and Commonwealth of Massa- 
chusetts, being of sound mind and memory, but realizing the uncertainty 
and shortness of this life ; do make our Last Will and Testament. 

After the payment of all our just debts, we do give, devise, and be- 
queath as follows : 

First: To Director Verbeck and the Faculty of the College, our 
lasting gratitude for their earnest efforts to make something of us. 

Second: To Miss Martin, Miss O'Donnell, and Miss Toole, our 
sincerest thanks for the many kindnesses they have done for us. 

Third: To John Gibbs, the right to say Nantucket in our midst, if 
he whispers it. 

Fourth: To Roland Smith, the privilege of singing in a Glee Club, 
providing it does not conflict with "orther" organizations of a similar 

Fifth: To Paul Viets, a few new jobs, fully realizing his great need 
for them. 

Sixth: To James Smyth, pleasant dreams. 

Seventh: To some deserving freshman, Arthur Burrill's unequaled 
success in athletics. 

Eighth: To Errol Cook, the robes of our various sheiks, that he may 
be more successful in his visits to Northampton. 

Ninth: To Harold Stewart, our assistant cheer leader, all the extra 
steam that ever reaches the fourth floor in North College, with the request 
that he use it, should his own supply run out. 

Tenth: To Walter John James Shea, the privilege of making his bed 
each morning before twelve o'clock. 

Eleventh: To the Amherst Alms Department, all the splinters we 
have taken from our shoes, accumulated from the floors of North College 
with the request that they be given the poor as firewood. 

Twelfth: To Ralph VanMeter, a new Pomology Building, as we know 
he will make good use of the same. 

Thirteenth: To Edwin R. Young, Jr., a life contract on Keith's 
vaudeville circuit. 

Fourteenth: To the proposed new College Museum, the fourth floor 
of North College, as it is a model of Mid-Victorian Antiquity. 

Fifteenth: To our incoming Senior members, the fourth floor of the 
above mentioned building, providing they pay the rent when due. 

Sixteenth: To everybody with whom we have been associated while 
at Aggie, a fond farewell, with the assurance that we will never forget our 
good old Alma Mater. 

In witness whereof, we of the A. T. G. of the Class of 1927 hereunto 
set our hands and seal, this sixth day of June, in the year of our Lord, 
one thousand nine hundred and twenty-seven.

plays were given, books reviewed, and talk of the Senior Play discussed.

Marks: "Are you a musician?" 
Russ : "No, but I own a saxaphone." 

Fat Aalto : "Milly, there is something the matter with this old tub

A room-mate is a person who never has anything of his own but 
designates all of your possessions with the word OUR. 

Father Marks: "What kind of a town is Amherst?" 

Stan: "A college town." 

Father Marks : "And what do the people who don't go to college do?" 

Stan : "They do the people who do go to college." 


We have a plump playmate named Young,

the position of manager, which he did most admirably. 

CONN. AGGIE FRESHMEN 25— M. A. C. 2-yr. 7 

Along the first of October, the Conn. Aggie '30 squad paid us a visit, 
to start off our schedule, the results did not prove very gratifying, as the 
score will show. Only one touchdown was made by Butters, after Kelly 
had battered his way down the field for gain after gain. 

VERMONT ACADEMY 19— M. A. C. 2-yr. 

Vermont Academy next paid us a visit much to their advantage. In 
this game, our team lost the services of "Bill" Kelley, around whom, the 
back-field combination had been built ; "Bill" had dislocated a shoulder 
the previous year at Vermont Academy, and had been nursing it carefully, 
but in this game his shoulder was dislocated three times, the last, making 
it necessary to take "Bill" out, never to return. However, the Academy's 
aerial attack proved too much for our team. 

M. A. C. FRESHMEN 16— M. A. C. 2-yr. 

This was a game looked forward to on the campus, for the Freshmen 
had gone down in defeat to a fighting Two Year team last year, so that 
while we were out to repeat this, the Freshmen were out to retrieve lost 
honors. It proved to be a hard fought battle, but Phil Couhig's shifty 
Freshmen were not to be denied. 


PITTSFIELD HIGH 20— M. A. C. 2-yr. 7 

This team paid us a visit, coming with an established reputation of being 
pretty good. It developed into a hard fought battle, the visitors finding 
it hard to gain through our line, reverted to the forward passing game and 
performed remarkably well. Our only score was made by a long march 
down the field, the gains being small but consistent, several other marches 
were made by our team, but as we neared the opponent's goal we were 
held for downs. 

TRINITY JR. VARSITY 20— M. A. C. 2-yr. 

This was our first game of the year on a foreign field, the trip to 
Hartford, Conn., was by bus. This game turned out to be one of the type 
without any particular high spots, both teams using the line bucking style 
mainly, and as the score denotes we were out bucked. 


Our last game of the year, we traveled to Deerfield hoping for a 
victory, for a victory over Deerfield would have atoned for the team's past 
record. We received kickoft' and immediately our team commenced to 
march down the field to the opponents' five yard line, there to be held ; from 
then on. It was a hard fought game ; yes, they scored, but they earned 
every point they received. 

And so was the final curtain rung down, a season of defeats, with no 
apologies to make; every man had done his best but it proved to be not 
enough. To Coach Ball it must have been a trying year, for there were 
games in the early part of the season when he was forced to keep men in 
the game that needed a breathing spell, but could not be spared, because 
there were no substitutes to fill their shoes. 

The team: L. E., Chase; L. T., Pulsifer; L. G., Young; C, Warren; 
R. G., R. W. Smith; R. T., Nilsson; R. E., Caffrey, and Butler; Q., Holland; 
R. H., Peabody; L. H., I3urrill (captain); F. B., Butters; Subs.: Line, 
Mitchell, Waldo Doherty, Roche ; Vining : Backs, Olsen, Dodds, and Lawson. 

Insignia were awarded to the following men who received sweaters 
1st year : Arthur W. Burrill of Wellesley, William J. Caflfrey of Cromwell, 
Conn., and Leslie C. Holland of Holyoke. 

The following men were awarded sweaters as well as insignia : Brad- 
ford H. Butler, '28, of Newburyport; William S. Chace, '28, of South 
Dartmouth; Mario Nicolai of Somerville; Gustaf C. Nilsson of Wor- 
cester; Samuel S. Peabody of Manchester; Howard G. Pulsifer, '28, of 
Natick; Roland W. Smith of Southbridge; Theadore E. Waldo of Boylston 
Center, Vt. ; Edwin R. Young of Worcester. 



Immediately after the Christmas vacation the call went out for 
Basketball candidates, and under the efficient coaching of Red Ball the 
team gave a good account of itself. Leslie C. Holland was made Captain, 
and Lindley Felton, Manager. A summary of the games follows : 

Attleboro H. S. 7— M. A. C. 2-yr. 16 
A good beginning, the team rounding into shape in fine form, a few 
weak spots showing. Capt. Holland scored 12 points. 

Amherst H. S. 5— M. A. C. 2-yr. 25 
As the score indicates the opponent's defense was rather weak and 
Capt. Holland took advantage of the fact by scoring 19 points. 

Turners Falls H. S. 5— M. A. C. 2-yr. 19 
Another one sided contest, Holland and Olsen penetrating the visitors' 
defense consistently, while our defense was holding them to a very few- 

Vermont Academy 7 — M. A. C. 2-yr. 16 
This was a hard fought battle in the first half of the game, the score 
being 7 — 7 when the gun closed the first half. A whirlwind finish was 
made, however, with Holland and Parsons scoring enough points to win. 

Smith Aggie 10— M. A. C. 2-yr. 17 
Our team still going strong, our superior defense combined with the 
scoring of Holland, Parsons, and Olsen netted us another victory. 


Holyoke H. S. 22— M. A. C. 2-yr. 15 
Our first defeat of the season was lost to a representative team of 
Holyoke. Williamson of Holyoke scored 10 points. Capt. Holland was very 
closely played at all times. 

Hopkins Academy 10— M. A. C. 2-yr. 20 
A well played game, our five man defense keeping the opponents away 
from the basket, while Holland, Parsons, and Olsen were piling up points. 

Drury H. S. 18— M. A. C. 2-yr. 11 
A trip to North Adams to meet our second loss, probably a strange 
floor for the first time of the season may be held somewhat accountable 
for the showing. It proved a hard fought battle from beginning to end 
and a hard one to lose. 

Lenox H. S. 12— M. A. C. 2-yr. 15 
Our team paid a visit to Lenox High and after a hard fought game 
annexed another victory. Stewart and Napoli, a pair of our utility men 
entering into the game in the second half, gave a good account of them- 

Clarke School 6— M. A. C. 2-yr. 16 
This was a harder fought game than the score may indicate, but 
playing heads-up basketball in the last half brought a decisive victory. 

Sacred Heart H. S. 11— M. A. C. 2-yr. 4 
In this game our team did not seem able to get started, the score at 
half time being 2 — 1, Sacred Heart leading. In the second half the visitors 
began to penetrate our defense and ran up a score of eleven points. 

Northampton H. S. 15— M. A. C. 2-yr. 5 
A visit to "Hamp" resulted in the most severe defeat of the season. 
Our team was leading at the end of the first half, by the score of 4 — 2, 
but our opponents came back in the second half and scored six baskets 
for a decesive win. 

Pittsfield H. S. 17— M. A. C. 2-yr. 14 
This was one of the hardest and best played games of the season. 
Pittsfield was leading 8 — 4 at half time, but our team came out in the 
second half and played a brand of Basketball that most likely made the 
closing gun sound very pleasant to the Pittsfield rooters. Holland and 
Butters did very good work. 

We cannot measure the value of the coaching of the team by, "Red" 
Ball and the reader cannot but notice the eff'ects of his half time talks on 
the strong and weak points of play. 

Butters was elected Captain and Lopes Manager for next season. 
The Squad: *Holland (Capt.), C; *Butters, R. G.; *Chace, L. G.;

Thru the efforts of some of the students who were interested in 
Hockey, this sport won the recognition of the Athletic Board. This inter- 
est was partially stimulated by the setting up of a Hockey rink on the 
Campus pond, this rink being kept clear by the grounds department. 

As soon as recognition was gained, Mr. Aalto was appointed manager 
and a call was sounded for Hockey players. About fifteen men reported 
for practice, the coaching being done by Mr. Wason a Winter School 
student. He had formerly played with Harvard. He was ably assisted 
by Doc. Peabody who was later elected captain. 

Following is a summary of the games : 

M. A. C. Freshmen 1— M. A. C. 2-yr. 

Our first game. Altho we lost, the results were gratifying, for the 
Freshmen had been organized early and had the advantage of good 
coaching. Our team played a good brand of Hockey at all times. 

M. A. C. Juniors 1— M. A. C. 2-yr. 2 

This game proved to us that our team was developing "team play." 
It was a hard fought game and every man did his share toward the victory. 


Deerfield Academy 1— M. A. C. 2-yr. 1 

A flying trip to Deerfield and an abbreviated game for only two periods 
were played before darkness called a halt. A hard fought game with a 
general feeling that the score would have been different if the other period 
had been played. 

M. A. C. Freshmen 0— M. A. C. 2-yr. 1 

A return match with the Freshmen team, which necessitated an over- 
time period to bring about the above results. Art. Burrill shot the only 
goal. This game showed that our team was improving and greater interest 
was being shown in this sport. 

This proved to be the last game of the season, for altho it was still 
early in the winter, the weather became so unsettled that it was found 
impossible to keep the rink in proper condition to play upon, this forced a 
cancellation of any further scheduled games. 

We hope that the fine start of this year, in this branch of sports, will 
be continued with greater success in the years to come. 

The Team : Bunny Batchelor, Goal ; Frankie Smith, R. D. ; Jimmie 
Smyth, L. D. ; Shrimp Haddocks, L. W. ; Doc. Peabody, R. W. ; Art Wells, 
■Center; Subs.: Burrill, Wason, Gale, and Kimball. 

All the aboved named men were awarded numerals. 



Stewart — shortstop 
Hoxie — pitcher — right field 
Holland — 1st base 
Pickard — center field 
Smith — pitcher — right field 

Shepard — c. f . 
Caffrey — c. 

Hannigan — 2nd base 
Burrill — catcher 
Graves — left field 
Marks — 3rd base

Roy — r. f . 



The battery candidates were called out in the early part of March for 
indoor limbering up and instructions. Immediately after the opening of 
the spring term the call was sounded by the manager for the remainder 
of the squad, about twenty four reporting. The coaching of the team was 
assigned to Ray Smiley, a four year alumnus, and Captain Sumner of the 
Military Dept., the team shaping up very slowly as a playing unit. 

After several scrimmages with the Aggie Freshmen and Varsity, our 
first opponents, the Palmer High team paid us a visit, this game proved 
to be a walk-away for the opponents, our team could not seem to collect 
themselves, with the final result being a score of 26 to 1 in their favor. 

A visit to Palmer for a return game was cancelled on account of rain. 

Our next opponent was the Belchertown High team, the game being- 
played on our home field. In the first part of the game our men did not give 
"Roily" Smith, our pitcher, the support he deserved, with the result that 
the out come of the game was rather unfavorable, but in the last three 
innings our team began to find themselves, and coming from behind in 
splendid fashion won the game by the score of 18 to 14. 

A journey to Deerfield was next in order, where the Deerfield Academy 
was taken on, altho our team went down to defeat by a score of 12 to 3, 
the team play showed a marked improvement, and Deerfield's victory was 
by no means as easy a task as the score would lead one to believe. 

It is hoped that the team will continue showing improvement in its 
remaining games. 

Our schedule for the remainder of the season is as follows : 

April 29- 




May 11-

Here^s A Way to Make Money 

After Graduation 
In Your Own College Town 

TTAKE the Flower Shop at Welleslev, Mass., 
■*■ for example. It is located handj'^ 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-houses hitched to it. 

Now the shop is a most attractive brick build- 
ing, with up to date greenhouses, and the 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 Deliverj^ or- 
der.s 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 
liealthy, fun-filled and profit yielding ? 

Just the kind that to-be-wife-of vours would 

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.

have on your mind.
