/^UR two years on the Campus have gone and it 
is with mingled feelings of joy and sorrow that 
we step out into the world to apply the knowledge 
we have gained here. That this Shorthorn may 
serve to remind us in later years of the many pleasant 
experiences which have been ours, of the trials and 
tribulations of greater or less degree which we have 
endured, and of the friends we have made, is the 
hope of those who are responsible for the production 
of this volume. 


This year, 1928, marks a ten-year period of educational service which the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College has rendered to the young men and women 
of the state thru the Two-Year Course in Practical Agriculture. Accurate 
results of any educational program are always difficult to figure — and statistics 
alone do not tell the whole story. It should be of interest, however, to observe 
the trend of enrolments in the course from its beginning. 

1918-19— 37 1923-24—169 

1919-20 — 209 1924-25 — 161 

1920-21 — 277 1925-26 — 189 

1921-22 — 293 1926-27—165 

1922-23 — 257 1927-28 — 205 

During the four years following the end of the Great War the large 
registrations are explained by the great number of ex-service men taking 
agricultural training under the U. S. Veterans' Bureau program of rehabilita- 
tion. This work practically ended with the year 1923, altho four field 
instructors were kept at work thru 1925, supervising the placement jobs of 
the former soldiers and assisting them to successful beginnings in their new 
vocations. Since 1924, then, the enrolment figures can well be interpreted as 
an index of the normal interest young people of Massachusetts are showing 
in entering agricultural occupations. For a state chiefly industrial in its 
pursuits the record is a good one. 

Year by year the graduates of the Two-Year course have been taking up 
their new duties and responsibilities which this training has helped make 
possible. And today our alumni records carry the names of over 500 graduates, 
a good percentage of whom are engaged in the business of agriculture. 

An effective system of placement training has been developed which 
enables every student to get six months of valuable experience under working 
conditions which test and demonstrate the principles of the class-room. 
Growing out from this has come an employment service for graduates of the 
course by which the College is increasing its usefulness both to the trained 
worker and to the employer. 

With the undergraduates we have seen a healthy growth in athletic 
activities, football, hockey, basketball, and baseball; the social life of the 
Two-Year Clubs is a steadying and helpful influence in the student groups; 
and problems of student government are well handled. For all this sound 
development of customs and organizations we owe much to the early founders 
of the work and to the pioneer classes whose interests and enthusiasms built 
so well. 

Today finds the College with a new leader at the helm whose under- 
standing and conception of the service to be rendered by all departments of 
the institution augurs well for the future. New problems and adjustments are 
to be faced as always. May the Class of 1928 feel their responsibility in the 
work that lies ahead and be eager to carry on the work so well begun a: —

(New Name Adopted by College Trustees — May, 1928) 

Owing to a feeling that there might be confusion in the public mind concerning 
the real purpose and plan of the Two-Year Course in Practical Agriculture so long as 
it continued under that name, President Edward M. Lewis presented a year ago a 
suggestion to the Trustees of the College that a new name be selected. No name 
seemed more appropriate than that of the first professor of agriculture of the College, 
Levi Stockbridge, who was himself a practical farmer, active superintendent of the 
College farm of those early days, and a real supervisor of placement training at a time 
when it was required of the students as a pait of the class program, with tasks assigned 
on the college farm. It was felt by the Trustees that any action towards such a change 
in name should not be taken too quickly to insure careful consideration. The Two- 
Year course had grown and prospered over a period of almost a decade and it was 
the desire of all the members of the Board to avoid any step which might hinder the 
continued development of the Two-Year course, or detract in any way from the good 
name and reputation for service which it had already made for itself. So the matter 
was tabled for later consideration and the in-coming president found it among other 
questions of college policy yet to be determined. 

Early in November, at the annual Two-Year Alumni meeting in Springfield, I 
outlined my own ideas on the question of a new name and later at the suggestion of 
Director Verbeck presented another statement for the alumni which was printed in 
the "Two-Year Alumni News" for March. In this I asked for suggestions on a new 
name so that all interested might have a chance to designate a preference. In response, 
I did hear from several of the graduates. Following this, members of the present 
senior class indicated they were much interested in the matter, especially if a new name 
were to be adopted by the Trustees before the class graduated in June. A committee 
of the class called upon me and, after learning what names were considered as suitable, 
prepared and mailed a postal card vote to over seven hundred former students of the 
course whose names and present addresses were available. 

The name submitted for alumni vote was "The School of Agriculture at Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College" and a large majority of the cards returned indicated 
approval of the change. With these suggestions available from alumni and under- 
graduates the Trustees had the question again presented to them last Saturday, May 5, 
and after careful deliberation voted to adopt the original suggestion of fotmer President 
Lewis, as one most fitting for the type of educational service to agriculture which is 
being given. 

To all alumni, alumnae, former students, undergraduates, and friends of the old 
"Two-Year Course" I therefore wish to introduce the new name of this important part 
of our college family: — 

The Stockbridge School of Agriculture 


Massachusetts Agric/dtural College 

And may I express the hope that it will soon become to all of you an old familiar name, 

honoring both the course and the name of one who did so much for the College in its 

early history, and was such an inspiring teacher and leader for earlier generations. 

The new name will go into effect at once and Director Verbeck is already 
arranging for a new form of diploma to be presented for the first time to the graduating 
class of 1928.

It was a fine autumn day when we returned to the campus, shook hands 
with old comrades and renewed old acquaintances. After acclimating ourselves 
to the change from placement training, we settled down to work and achieve. 

The class that had troubled the seniors so much the past year now 
proceeded to strike terror in the hearts of the frosh and this culminated in 
the annual hat rush, where the class of '28 turned in another sterling perform- 
ance as regards rough and tumble fighting. The class of '29 was unusually 
large and their thorough taming reflects credit on the small but capable group 
of seniors. The two clubs also got under way and social life set in. 

Meanwhile the senior class made history for itself. A social was extended 
to the frosh, who returned the courtesy in great style. The spirit of the class 
has been evidenced by the interest it has taken in sponsoring the movement 
for a name for the course, in obtaining a new and better certificate for com- 
mencement and in furthering the interests of the course as it has seen them. 
The movement for a new name resulted in the trustees voting to call the 
course "The Stockbridge School of Agriculture at Massachusetts Agricultural 

Placement training period came with the close of the winter term and 
the freshmen left us to strive as best we could without them. The last term 
was so filled with activity that almost before we realized it commencement 
descended upon us. 

The activities of the Class of '28 are truly now history. "We can only 
hope that we have played our part while here well.

"Big Boy" divides his time between cattle, and that even 
more dangerous creature — woman ! It is most fortunate that 
Dick is not absent minded, for if he were "Billie" (her 
photo is plastered all over Dick's den) would be led to the 
altar by a nose ring. Dick, like the more insignificant Beau 
Brummel before him, is a faultless dresser, and would be 
very popular were it not for his indiscriminate use of mange

even as Leander swam the Hellespont for woman, Errol

This youngster, at first seeming diffident and quiet, soon 
blossomed into very much of a live wire. The call of 
athletics was eagerly answered by this stalwart, who shone 
consistently in hockey and baseball. When the rugged 
campers sought to entrain for Toby for overnight sessions, 
they eagerly sought out Podge, who as eagerly joined them. 
This love of his for the outdoor life inspires his interest in 
horticulture. Most of us eat three meals while Podge is 
just tackling his dessert.

attention, however, at the hands of Mom. In our pea green

Harry comes from the shoe city, but has no desire to be

lilies of the field and like these lilies he toils not, but on 
the dance floor he certainly doth spin! (Biblical references 
from Dr. Elliot's five foot shelf.) New York may be 
replete with night clubs but as for Harry, he prefers Deer-

It is rather fitting that Tommy should come from down 
New Bedford way, for he is a whale of a good fellow. His 
quietness is refreshing when we consider that we have more 
than our share of noisemakers. However, he can be counted 
on to come across with a good practical joke every so often. 
Tom has decided tastes in millinery that popular opinion 
has been unable to shake. Tom's build is such that we hope 
some footpads cross his path some day. The crime wave 
should be lessened considerably then.

keeping and though small in stature has big ideas. Not 
until it was almost time for Shrimp to leave us, did we

be a bit too penetrating at times for one's comfort, bur 
which is always genuine. He knows how to talk and (here

As the time approaches when we will be alumnae too, we cannot help but 
think of the work of the past year and judgment must be passed as to our 
success or failure. 

A small but select few bore the brunt of our not too severe initiation, 
held off-campus for the first time, after we had become thoroughly acquainted 
at a tea given for our willing victims. 

To replenish our not overstocked treasury we made and sold fudge to 
our classmates of discrimination, who bought and called for more. 

Due to crowded conditions in the Abbey some of our members lived 
off-campus and for their benefit we changed the time of our meetings from 
the evening to the afternoon. 

The advent of leap year could not pass without appropriate celebration, 
so we held a leap year costume dance, well attended and very successful. 

With half of our number leaving for the more or less tedious practical 
training, we attended a banquet held at Bates Inn, resurrecting a custom for 
the first time since 1925. 

A farewell party left, we hope, a pleasant memory of seniors who will 
not be present at the next roll-call, but who hope, as our seniors have done, 
to return often during the coming year and re-awaken memories for old 
times' sake. 

With promises of numerous letters, well filled to date, our freshmen 
left us, still inspired by the ideals and aims of the S. C. S. which we have 
endeavored to impart to them, and we rest secure in the knowledge that they 
will be worthily carried on.

In years to come we will look back upon the past year and recall the 
many events in which the members of Kolony Klub participated. 

Our first real responsibility, of course, was the rushing of freshmen and 
this part of the program was well started with smokers and socials at the 
house. The freshmen will admit that we were good "to them until the selected 
group had signed on the dotted line, but from then on we impressed our 
wishes on them in an unmistakable fashion. The most anticipated affair of 
the year, for the freshmen at least, was the initiation banquet held at Draper 
Hall, because it marked the end of senior hostilities. 

One cold and stormy night, the "Hyhats" and "Inquisitors" surprised us 
with an impromptu party that no one will forget. Many of us discovered our 
ability as orators that evening and earned for ourselves lasting nick-names. 

However, all good things must end, and the freshmen's stay with us 
ended with the Farewell Banquet which was held at the Hotel Perry. The 
"Hyhats" again surprised us with another party after the banquet in honor of 
The Goddess. 

Spring term began and before we realized it Commencement was upon 
us. With it came our one big social event of the year, the Prom House Dance. 
Everyone will agree that it was the best of the year.

On the first night of our return to the campus, a small but dynamic nucleus 
gathered together in the meeting room of A. T. G. to lay plans for the ensuing 
year. Even the most optimistic of us could not predict the success that was 
to be ours during that time. A smoker was planned for the freshmen at 
which light banter, coruscating witticisms and grave wisdom were hurled at 
the neophytes without discrimination. Card games and the time honored 
refreshment of cider and doughnuts were the order of the day. That our 
advances met with response was evidenced by the fact that thirty yearlings 
pledged themselves and accordingly were duly initiated — (as the current 
colloquialism has it — "and how!"). 

A house party was held at the Women's Club House and our social lions 
claimed it to be a classic. A second rushing season held near Christmas time 
netted a dozen more freshmen. During the winter term, the club, augmented 
by so many frosh prospered to no mean degree, and a basketball team 
representing the fraternity performed nobly, its work in the inter-fraternity 
league being gratifying indeed. With the co-operation of the Kolony Klub 
a delightful inter-frat dance was put on. As placement training time drew 
near, a banquet was held and officers for the coming term were elected. 

The responsibility for next year rests on the broad shoulders of Hermie 
Hoyt as president, assisted by Jim Woodger, vice-president. Jack Hall, 
secretary, and Ed Hobart as treasurer. The club members are to be congra- 
tulated on their fine judgment in selecting these boys. 

A small group of seniors was left after the exodus of the frosh, and much 
hilarity was enjoyed by this group. A smoker given to the members of Kolony 
Klub preceded the commencement activities of the organization, where at the 
Class of '28 A. T. G. completed their school life with the pep and gusto that 
characterized their two-year stay.

By Benn W. Levy 
Synopsis — A brilliant English comedy based on the perennially interesting 
subject of misogyny, filled with clever lines, witty dialogue and a lively inter- 
play of well-diversified characters. The plot concerns five men who are banded 
together by their hatred of women. Into this Eveless Eden comes one woman 
who confesses that she is a thief and tells them to send for the police. But 
they do not and she stays. For the remaining two acts one woman upsets all 
the theories propounded by the worthy five. The result is an amusing comedy 
and a delicate satire.

mn QIlHb 

Through the interest and efforts of some of the students a new activity 
was instituted this year in the organizing of a Glee Club. Warren A. Batchelor 
was elected President, and an Executive Board was appointed, consisting of 
Bradford Butler, George Kimball and Fred Moore. 

Mr. Alexander Eickter was secured as director, and upon return from 
Christmas vacation, rehearsals began with about forty members present. 

Progress was slow at first because of the inability of many of the members 
to read music. However this was slowly overcome, with the result that by 
the middle of March a fine organization had been molded. 

At this time the freshmen members left for placement training, dropping 
our membership to about twenty-five. With the seniors attending faithfully 
and giving spirited support progress continued. 

The preliminary stage having been passed through, we feel confident that 
the succeeding classes will keep alive the interest and strive for the incorpora- 
tion of musical presentation with the Commencement execises.

One dark, stormy night the Yokelville male citizenry was assembled in 
Hank Hicks' combination General Store, Post Office and Hotel around the 
sputtering stove, boasting as usual. This particular evening the bone of 
contention was education. Finally after each braggart had exhausted his real 
and imaginary source of learning, Hiram Judkins' high falsetto voice broke 
through their heavy silence with an introductory hem and haw and he forthwith 
held his cronies spellbound and gaping. 

"Waal fellers, mebbe I ain't got nothin' much on you, but I got a cousin 
down Amherst way who went ter school even after he got outer the grades. 

He tells as how he was one of em as entered the Two-Years Course at the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College — guess that's it — in 1927, and they was 
purty nigh outer a million or mebbe a hundred and thirty-two who started 
with him. 

"The first day he says they was durn near flabbergasted, the place was so 
big, by gum, there bein' so many buildin's for 'em stretched all over the campus, 
and billions of other kids, too. 

"Seems ter me I heard Aloysius say he went to a number of shindigs up 
there — receptions, dances, and the like. He said they was al'ays gettin" 
together now'n again specially ter the football games, and almost lost their 
voices yellin'. The boys got up a hockey team, and he never see'd the like of 
the way those fellers could travel on skates — some game that! 

"They all stuck together like glue through every scrap. Besides these 
games, they played others as all of us useter do, and gosh, the co-eds (that's 
what the girls are named up there) were in some sorta thing, rifle team, think 
that's what they call it by. Guess girls ain't left out of nothin', now a days. 

"An' say, lemme tell ya somethin' right here! They held a real votin' 
thing, election 'twas, and by crackee, they certainly did purty well. I reckon 
they was afeared my cousin Aloysius was too smart ter lead 'em, so instead 
the head of the class was Henry Graf, and his sub was Elbridge Belden. Agnes 
Sullivan kept account, whilst Fred Moore passed the hat. Not half bad, 'eh.-* 

"Sure, they had clubs. Seems though they al'ays went by initials. There 
was two fraternities, seems ter me, called the A. T. G. and the K. K. Don't 
know much 'bout 'em, but Aloysius was al'ays writing' home sayin' his fra- 
ternity was havin' a meetin' or doin' somethin' or ruther. 'Member cousin says 
the S. C. S. (that's the girls' society) held a right good Costume Dance, too. 

"Waal comin' along March the fellers and girls was sent out on diff'rent 
farms for placement work, think 'twas, but I 'spect they'll all be back in the 
Fall ready ter fill the seniors' shoes. 

"Reckon 'Liza wants me ter home now, boys, but next time I'll tell yer 
more about how they came out as graduates an' all the rest. Before I go 
whaddya say to a cheer like they done? Ready! Set! Go! Rah! Rah! Rah! 
for the Class of 1929! Whoopee!"

By special arrangement with the departments concerned, we are pleased 
to print the following examination for those interested. 


Quiz No. .007198. 

1. How, if no scales were available, could the length of a hatching egg 
be determined by using an 18 grain test bottle that had been subjected to a high 
degree of pigmentation in the maner prescribed by Farrington? 

2. If the amount of available humus in a barrel of dry undrained muck 
exceeds the liters weight of the organic matter in several liters of chipped beef, 
how could the necessary amount of lime be applied to sandy loam if the coulter 
on the manure spreader was set to plow a furrow 8 inches in depth? (If the 
negative is true, could the answer be used as an ample excuse to throw broken 
glass in the laboratory sinks?) 

3. On a field trip, assuming that it was raining, how could the apples 
of any poultry plant owner be pilfered in a manner that would not lower the 
B. F. test of his 28 egg per month flock if the tile drains were plugged on 
three ends? (At some later date, an experiment of this nature will be under- 
taken. In case of snow, exercises will be held in the basement of the Drill 

4. Could an average lactometer reading of 6% be continued in case of 
hail if the operator of the test was killed by exposure to 2/3 of the run oflf 
water from three roofs of any given number of large size orchards that have 
a growth of buckwheat as a cover crop? (In case of rain, the funeral will be 
held on the following month.) 

5. Draw a diagram showing the common factors which influence the 
spread of head type disease and all the ways it may be cured by use of egg 
laying contests. (If no roosters are available, disregard the topography.) 

6. "Why is soil formed in milk? 

7. Is the slope of the Pin Bones determined by the acidity of whey or 
its equivalent? 

8. Give the average B. F. test for any given number of Southdown cows

A week before school began, about twenty men reported to Coach Ball, 
sessions being held three times daily. With the opening of classes, the squad 
was increased considerably. The team was captained by Howard G. Pulsifer, 
and Alan D. Stackpole was chosen as Manager. 

Vermont Academy 32 — M. A. C. 2-yr. 12 
A trip to Sacton River for the opening game of the season resulted in a 
loss. Our green team showed offensive ability, however, by scoring two 
touchdowns after Vermont had made 19 points in the first five minutes of play. 
Slowness in getting started, and the greater experience of our opponents were 
too great to overcome. 

WiUiston Academy 33— M. A. C. 2-yr. 
\ fruitless journey to Easthampton resulting in a clear-cut victory for our 
opponents. This was due in part to the removal of Sam Mitchell because of 
injury, and the incompetentcy of a substitute center, no score having been made 
up to the time of the substitution. During the first half we kept the ball in 
their territory most of the time, but many fumbles later in the game spelled 
our defeat. 

Trinity College Freshmen — M. A. C. 2-yr. 25 
This game proved that our team was rounding into form, and showing 
driving power as well as close defensive work. A fighting spirit was instilled 


I x I * ' — ' — ' ' ^^i^^\^^ 

into the team as the boys had promised to bring back the football to Coach 
Ball, who was ill at home. 

M. A. C. Freshmen — M. A. C. 2-yr. 
This game was the talk of the campus, and the attendance was large. 
The many prophesies of defeat for us were not realized, however, as our line 
was impenetrable, the frosh backs being stopped consistently. At the very 
beginning we took the offensive and threatened continually, reverting to 
defensive play during the last half. A thrilling game, and well-played all 
the way. 

Pittsfield High School 6— M. A. C. 2-yr. 13 
A well rewarded trip to Pittsfield, with our team playing its best brand of 
football. Repeated gains by Olsen, Graf, and Crissman, combined with real 
defensive work by the line, kept the ball in Pittsfield territory most of the time. 
Pittsfield fought hard to come back, but we were not to be denied. 

Deerfield Academy 32 — M. A. C. 2-yr. 7 
The hardest fought game of the season without our team out-weighed, 
and most of the boys playing the full game, while our opponents substituted 
freely. Our only score came as a result of a recovered fumble by Brad Butler, 
who ran 30 yeards for a touchdown. 

This team was a great improvement over last year's, and it was made up 
of practically all green men, only two letter-men returning this fall. With good 
seasoned material as a nucleus, '29 should have a successful season. 

W. Brown was elected Captain, and Parkinson Manager for next season. 

The team: L. E., Cheney; L. T., Pulsifer (captain); L. G., Taylor; 
C, Mitchell; R. G., Dibble; R. T., Brown; R. E., Butler; Q., Graf; R. H., 
Sylvia; L. H., Crissman and Pellett; F. B.. Olsen; Subs.: Line, NapoH, Kellogg, 
Skovron, White, Greene, Ashworth, Ashton, Cormell, Stevens; Backs, Farmer, 
Gillis, Hall, and Hulbert. 

Insignia were awarded to the following: Howard G. Pulsifer, '28, of 
Natick; Bradford H. Butler, '28, of Agawam; and Ralph E. Olsen, '28, of 

The following received sweaters as well as insignia: Samuel S. Mitchell, 
'28, of Salem; Thomas Napoli, '28, of Lexington; Oscar B. Taylor, '28, of 
Westport, Conn.; Joseph Sylvia, '29, of Mattapoisett; Henry Graf, Jr., '29, 
of Newburyport; Lysleford Dibble, '29, of West Springfield; Oliver F. Cheney,

Pellett, '29, of Gardner.

Directly after the Christmas vacation about forty candidates reported to 
Coach Ball, and under his direction a good team was molded. The team was 
captained by Alden W. Butters, and managed by Frank L. Lopes. 

Arms Academy 15— M. A. C. 2-yr. 28 
A line start with the team showing up well as a unit. Some polishing 
needed, but proving that we have real scoring power. 

Hopkins Academy 18— M. A. C. 2-yr. 25 
The team still working well. Hopkins led 5 — 3 at the end of the first 
half, but with Fleming leading the attack, we came back to win decisively. 

Smiths Academy 12— M. A. C. 2-yr. 33 
Another clean victory with Fleming and Olsen leading the offense, and 
Captain Butters fine at guard. Our game all the way. 

South Deerfield High School 27— M. A. C. 2-yr. 24 
A fast and exciting game in which our slowness in getting started, and 
the superior basket shooting by our opponent forwards, combined to defeat us. 

New Salem Academy 19 — M. A. C. 2-yr. 9 
Our utility men started this game and were on the short end of a 14 — 11 
score at the 'first half. Our regulars went in and proceeded to tally at will 
and win handily. 


^ 1926 (C3)^H0RTH0RN 

Pittsfield High School 33— M. A. C. 2-yr. 23 
The visitors amassed 18 points to our reserves' 4 in the first half, which 
proved too much for the regulars to overcome. 

Amherst High School 5— M. A. C. 2-yr. 48 
Our opponents were greatly outclassed, making only one goal from the 
floor. Fleming and Kelley led our attack. 

Middlesex Pre-Medical 19— M. A. C. 2-yr. 23 
A very evenly contested game with our superior offense carrying us to a 
win in the last half. Fleming again led the scoring. 

Sacred Heart High School 31— M. A. C. 2-yr. 15 
The first game on a strange, larger floor and slowness in getting started 
were accountable for our defeat. A hard-fought and closely contested game. 

Deerfield Academy 48— M. A. C. 2-yr. 30 
A visit to Deerfield resulting in a defeat for us. The first half was played 
on even terms, but during the second half our opponents tallied consistently. 

Turners Falls High School 48— M. A. C. 2-yr. 37 
A very fast game in which both teams scored freely. The weakening of 
our defense in the last half caused our defeat. 

Smith Agricultural School 11— M. A. C. 2-yr. 35 
A grand finale for the season, the team going fast with Olsen leading the 
attack. The utility men played most of the game and made a fine showing. 

The team: C, Fleming; R. G., Butters (captain) ; L. G., Pellett; L. G., 
Kelley; R. F., Olsen; Subs: Napoli, Mayo, and Woodger. 

Insignia were awarded to the following: Alden W. Butters. '28, of 
Natick; Ralph E. Olsen, '28, of Belmont; Leonard Pellett, '29, of Gardner. 

The following received sweaters as well as insignia: James Fleming, '29, 
of Ashland, N. H.; Milton Kelley. '29, of Ashland. N. H. 

^ 1926 (O^HORTHORN 

Because of the interest shown, and the recognition gained last year. 
Hockey became installed as a major sport. As soon as the ice was in good 
condition, about twenty men reported to Coach Briggs. The team was cap- 
tained by Lewis H. Maddocks, Jr., and Samuel S. Mitchell was chosen Manager. 

A schedule of ten games was prepared but due to the extremely queer 
weather, the ice being in poor condition, seven of these were cancelled. 

Greenfield High School 2— M. A. C. 2-yr. 1 
A trip to Greenfield for our opening game. A fast one with our forward 
line peppering the goal consistently, and our defense working well. The 
score was 1 — 1 at the end of the second period, but in the last period the puck 
was shot through a hole in the side of our net, counting as a tally, because the 
goal referee would not change his decision. Arguing was of no avail, so we 
accepted the decision, hoping for a return game, which was not realized. 

Deerfield Academy 1 — M. A. C. 2-yr. 2 
Our objective game of the season, and one replete with thrills, both for- 
ward lines threatening their opponents' goal continually. In the first period, 
both defenses were impenetrable, no score being made. Our forward line 
organized in the second period with the result that 2 goals were scored. Our 
opponents fought hard to come back in the last period, their efforts being 
rewarded with one goal. A good game with a very gratifying ending. 


1926 eiSHOKrHOKN 

Gushing Academy 2 — M. A. C. 2-yr. l| 
A long trip to Ashburnham, and the game played during a driving snow 
storm. Both teams were severely handicapped, but it was a fast game from 
start to finish. Gushing tallied in the first period, and we countered a few 
minutes later. No score was ixiade in the next period. The last period was 
nip and tuck, until with only a few seconds to play, our opponents with a 
well arranged attack, eliminated our defense and scored. A well-organized 
team and a fine one to keep on our schedule. 

Two practice games, against a team composed of half varsity and half 
freshmen were played, and in which we broke even, winning one 1 — 0, and 
losing the other by the same score. 

The class of '29 with a team built around Hennie Graf, a fast forward, 
and Hermie Hoyt, a hard-skating center, with good material in Gillis, Eyberse, 
Skovron, W. Brown, T. Brown, and JVIasciocchi should have a successful 

Graf was elected Gaptain, and Beals Manager for next season. 

The team: G., Hoyt; R. W., Graf; L. W., Maddocks (captain) ; R. D., 
GiUis; L. D., Kimball; Goal, Batchelor; Subs: Eyberse, Masciocchi, Skovron, 
W. Brown, T. Brown, and Stevens. 

Henry Graf, Jr., '29, of Newburyport, received insignia. 

The following received sweaters and insignia: Lewis H. Maddocks, Jr., 
'28, of Dracut; George W. Kimball, '28, of Littleton; Warren A. Batchelor, 
'28, of Stoughton; Herman F. Hoyt, '29, of Newton.

On the best authority these two methods are 
complimentary to each other. 

Sterilization should always follow the most 
careful cleaning, a cleaning such as the use of

In Building Greenhouses 

But, thanks be to Peter, YOU don't have 
to stud^ any of them. 

WHILE you've gone about your job of learning how to grow better 
flowers and more succulent vegetables, we've been building 
greenhouses to make raising them a lucrative twelve-months-a-year 

While you have studied the chemistry of soils and fertilizers, we 
have been applying chemistry to the protection of greenhouse metals 
and wood from moisture and decay. 

Every greenhouse we build is a product of engineering skill, a 
result of eighty years of tusslings with the laws of physics. 

Every improvement we make, adds just so much to the economy 
of production. 

That's why the Hitchings greenhouse is a perfected tool, ready to 
your hand, when you start out to make your mark and your fortune 
in the field of your chosen occupation. ■ 

Tell us what you'd like to do, and mayhap we can tell 
you how others have done it. Many of them with the 
aid of Hitchings greenhouses and Hitchings interested 
cooperation. Write us and let's get acquainted.
