Born 1820 in North Hadley, educated in Hadley public schools and in 
Hopkins Academy. Did not attend college. Inventor and patentee of the 
Stockbridge fertilizers. Very active in securing the acceptance by the State ot 
Massachusetts of the provisions under which, the so called "Land Grant" col- 
leges were established by the national government and later securing the loca- 
tion of the Massachusetts Agricultural College at Amherst. In 1866, elected 
farm superintendent and instructor of agriculture. From 1872 to 1882 he held 
the office of professor of agriculture. In 1880 he was elected president of the 
college, which position he held for two years then resigning. He died in the 
year 1904 on May 2, at the home of his son in Lake City, Florida.

For the largesse so freely given of his 
brilliant mind. 

For his loyalty and keen intellect. 

For the years of unselfish labor and 
inspiring teachings. 

To a loyal father of "Old Aggie" 

We dedicate this book in grateful 
acknowledgement and loving memory.

FTEBl our two years spent on Aggie Campus, we 
are urged by a desire to compose this book; for 
the purpose of honoring the name of Levi 
Stockbridge, after whom our school is named; 
for the purpose of furthering a tradition long 
established; and for the purpose of bringing back 
to us, in years to come, pleasant memories of 
hours spent in study and learning, of days full of 
happy anticipation and pleasure, of the seasons 
with their respective sports and the struggles, 
victories and defeats therein.

"We believe that now, after a period of some ten years of trial and experi- 
ence, our collegiate non-degree vocational two-year course, under its new name 
of "Stockbridge School of Agriculture" meets a very specific need in education 
and has a brilliant future before it. 

This need is for technical vocational education which is beyond the trade 
school or high school grade but of shorter duration and of more definitely 
vocational character than is supplied by the degree courses of the college or 
university. The need for this type of education in other industries than 
agriculture has been recognized by prominent educators in this country and 
commented upon as an apparent lack in the American school system. This 
type of education has been provided in other countries for a long time, by 
Germany in the "gymnasia" and "realhochschule," by France in the so-called 
"agricultural colleges" and in many of the British colonies in vocational col- 
leges of less than university grade. 

In all such schools, it is essential that the on-campus instruction shall be 
conducted in an environment which is favorable to the development of voca- 
tional interest and pride and that there shall be as much opportunity as pos- 
sible for the acquirement of handicraft skill in the actual operations of the 
vocation itself. The latter aspect of our school is provided in the six-month's 
placement training which we require before the beginning of the senior year. 
This practical experience serves also to determine the student's aptitude and 
liking for the actual routine of his proposed vocation, and as an inspiration 
for and appreciation of his final year of preparation for it. 

I believe sincerely that Stockbridge School of Agriculture at Massachusetts 
Agricultural College fulfills excellently a definite need in vocational education 
for agriculture and has a most promising future. Further, I think that it is 
destined to serve as an example in this country for vocational education of 
Junior College grade for many other industries. Hence, I congratulate both 
the students and the College on the presence here of this special form of 
education. 

R. W. THATCHER, 

President.

As the class of 1929 approaches the completion of its two years of training in 
the Stockbridge School of Agriculture there comes a time for casting up accounts, as 
in any well run business organization, such as your own farm businesses are going to 
be some day. This analysis of values, this profit and loss statement, which I have in 
mind, will not deal at all with mere dollars and cents, but will rather endeavor to 
estimate those intangible factors of personality and character development without which 
any educational program would be poor indeed. 

Has the College given me something to profit by besides the lessons of lecture 
and laboratory? Have my associations with my fellow-students and teachers helped me 
to recognize character values which I can profitably use in my own life-building? And, 
on the other hand, do I discern the errors and mistakes of others, by which I can avoid 
similar difficulties? Have I grown in my judgments and discriminations, do I see my 
own faults and weaknesses clearly, and am I striving earnestly to correct them? Have 
my experiences during these two years taught me to appreciate the true factors that 
make for a successful and happy life? As the mariner charts out his pathway across 
the trackless seas to avoid rock and reef, am I now making full use of my oppor- 
tunities and privileges by laying down for myself a program of self-study and self- 
improvement, of discipline and self-control, which will help me to be the kind of man 
I want to be? All these are questions that come to each one of us in times of quiet 
thought and self-analysis, when we are taking stock of things, — and they must be 
answered one way or another, for good or for ill. 

After all, we must have gained something of higher ideals and clearer purpose, 
of nobler ambitions, even while we have been acquiring the scientific truth of nature 
to help us toward successful attainments in our life-work. And it must be true, too, 
that higher education, as you have enjoyed it here within these college walls, even tho 
the time has been so short, can only justify itself, as you demonstrate in your daily 
tasks and toil, in your communities and your homes, that life has a broader, deeper 
meaning to you. It is our sincere hope that you are taking away with you a new vision 
of your responsibilities, to yourself, to old Massachusetts that has so carefully fostered 
you, and to this great country which needs worthy, high-minded citizens, imbued with 
a full sense of civic duty. 

May your vision in all your undertakings be that of the old gardener about whom 
Liberty Hyde Bailey (former dean of agriculture at Cornell, great writer and poet) tells 
us in his book "The Harvest": 

"I once asked an old gardener how much land he had and he said with pride 
that he had one acre; and he added, 'It is a wonderful acre; it reaches to the center 
of the earth in one direction and it takes in the stars in the other.' This man's farm 
included not only the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but it contained the entire 
rainbow. 

"The size of an acre of land varies directly with the size of the man who manages 
it. The larger the man, the larger the acre. I do not know that anyone has yet 
determined how large an acre of land really is; but judging from the size of a plant 
that a woman grows in a potful of soil, it must exceed all calculations that have yet 
been made .... A man is not the best farmer until his acre grows larger every year, 
in produce or in serenity or in both." 

Roland H. Verbeck.

"Bus" 
A. T. G. 

"He knoirs his corsages." 
Mittineague, 1908. Floriculture. Glee Club. 

"Bus" thoroughly enjoys sleeping, dancing, talking, 
smoking and writing long epistles to certain of his numer- 
ous friends of the fair sex. He is an asset to all and — 
Oh yes, he has a special bed of his own and its similiar to 
a Buick car for he "gets on top of the mattress to get the 
facts." He owns a car or rather a Ford which we all en- 
joy riding in and he also has a-girl-or-two-or-more, while 
he himself may boast of two (old fashioned) blue eyes. 
Watch the man function with Floriculture as his main ob- 
jective, but Mt. Holyoke College also takes a portion of his 
time. "Bus" seems to dust away to Springfield most every 
week-end, but he has a reason. Practice Floriculture "Bus" 
and best of luck.

Westboro, Mass., 1908. Floriculture. Glee Club, '28. Foot-

"Ash" is our short, dark haired Romeo who hails from 
■Westboro. Ash always disappears on Fridays and just be- 
tween you and I, — well anyway, ask him about "Lake 
Chauncy". 

His buddie is the famous Hero and between them they 
have concocted a high pitched language with pet expressions 
thrown in. Ash majors in Flori, — it's the best course there 
is — } Ask him about it.

"Barney"

Roslindale, 1910. Pomology. Glee Club, '28. 

"Like Noah and His Ark" — Tom Mix and Toney — Alad- 
din and his lamp — so Barney and his Chevrolet are down in 
history. This dashing Romeo makes Arrow collar ads look 
like cartoons. Even magazines do help circumstances. Barney 
rates high in social life and studies. As a pomologist the girls 
think him the apple of their eye. The fruits of his efforts 
should spell success. Barney has gone through S. S. A. in a 
thoroughly unconcerned and happy go lucky manner. Home- 
work is of as much consequence to him as girls' ever- 
changing fashions.

"Joe" 
A. T. G. 

Dorchester, 1909. Horticulture. 

Joe is the tall, slim boy with the gunboat feet. He sure 
knows his Hort. and more power to him. Joe's easy going 
and his sauntering way reminds us of Ichabod Crane. At 
grub time when everybody is almost through Joe trots in — 
but walks out with the rest of us. You can always tell 
Joe by, "You finatic" or "Say boy." Joe is a friend of every- 
body and is bound to succeed.

New Britain, Conn., 1908. Horticulture. Hockey Mgr., '29. 

A. T. G. 

Anything from record buying to managing a hockey team 
George was right there. 

He proved very helpful to his brother students in giving 
them what knowledge he had (?) on various subjects. 'We 
all like George because of his willingness to do things. 

As in fiction and movies so it is here, there is a girl in 
the case and our story would not be complete without 
"Sweet Sue." George proved to us that some can secure 
good marks without the maximum of study.

"AI" 

K. K. 

Springfield, 1907. Horticulture. President Class, '29, Assistant 
Editor, Shorthorn. Secretary of Student Council, third 
term. Prom. Committee. Baseball, '29. 

■We all know AI, and who could help it. He's the boy 
that's into everything where everything is going on. AI 
makes himself scarce on week-ends and just between you 

and I — he doesn't leave because he's sick three guesses. 

AI and Mac are a tough combination to beat. Both belong 
to different clubs and even Smart cannot separate them. AI 
is always in on the fights at the fraternity between freshmen 
and seniors. His main casualties being torn pants, shirt, and 
a broken tooth. This handsome brute is also the great 
grand nephew of our namesake Levi Stockbridge, but AI 
hasn't the mustache. Ask him why Springfield is such a 
wonderful city.

"Jake" 

K. K. 

Woburn, 1908. Vegetable Gardening. President K. K. 

Vice-President Freshman Class. Vice-President Senior 

Class. Student Council, 3, 4, 5. 

"Jake" is an ambitious fellow, although he doesn't get out 
of all his finals. He says that his hobby is learning to play 
a sax. From our acquaintance with him, however, we should 
think that he was more at ease trying to keep a miss-placed 
eye brow on his face. From general appearances "Jake" is 
very quiet and nonchalant, but those who have had the 
pleasure of knowing him intimately find him just the 
contrary.

A. T. G. 
Chepatchet, R. I., 1909. Animal Husbandry. Corre- 
sponding Secretary, A. T. G. Baseball Manager, '29. 
Animal Husbandry Club. 

Here is a young man that should have been an orator 
instead of a student for he "slings" a mean line and gets 
away with it. He is cautious toward women and their 
ability to dance. It may be profitable? Everyone enjoys 
good nature and takes advantage of testing it quite often. 
Our "Rusty" keeps us amused and also keeps us from going 
to sleep nights but that's all part of the game. Never- 
the-less we'll miss his comical sayings and hope he'll not 
hibernate in Chepatchet. 





■ iartf)uc aa. Placfetaell 

A. T. G. 
"Art" "Pinkie" "Sonny boy" "Red" 
Wellesly, Mass. Pomology. Baseball. 

Do any of these nicknames suggest what sort of a chap 
this fellow is? 'Well, here he is, in plain English — Rather 
tall, red headed — you know what that means — a few 
freckles here and there and white sport shoes, rain or shine. 
There you have 'Pinky', one in a million. He claims he 
was born in England and seems rather proud of it — he 
certainly has that bull-dog determination when his girl 
friend is concerned. He manages to get to the Dining 
Hall, each morning in time to murmur, "Coffee and a 
main, Herm" — and yet at times during the day you might 
hear him say to some fellow student, "Hustle up, will you," 
such audacity. We blame the red hair for that. 



17 







"Lloyd" 
K. K. 
Randolph, 1909. Baseball, '29. Dairy. 

A quiet sort of chap and very short, but this is from 
dipping his fingers in the ice cream tubs at Flint Lab. 
Lloyd spent his summer showing the Pittsfield Dairy Co. 
how Stockbridge students do their pasteurizing of milk and 
churning of ice cream. Lloyd has been the most ardent 
supporter of S. S. A. athletic teams besides doing his share 
as a baseball player. The sleeping porch at K. K. hardly 
ever hears his vocal chords as he believes in that saying, 
"Peace on earth, good will toward men." 



Hennetf) ilJl. JSratfelcp 

"Brack" 

Strong, Me., 1909. Animal Husbandry. Football, '28. 

An. Hus. Club. Agronomy Club. 

"Brack" is one of a few who feels the call of the good 
'Old Bay State.' He is one of these fellows who says little 
but gets the things he is after by attentive listening and 
never failing vision. He can hold his own end up in any 
phase of work from selecting the best sheep to coming out 
on top in the hat rush. 

"We can readily see that he will make a success with his 
prize flock of sheep in the wilds of Maine.

Holliston, 1909. Poultry. Poultry Club. Baseball, '29. 

■With Robert quietness is a virtue and his one sole 
object in life is Poultry, "^ou will always find him at the 
library laboring studiously over the art of Chicken Raising. 
His aversion to the opposite sex is well known but let's 
hope in after life that "chicken choosing" will not be con- 
fined to poultry culling. Good luck, old top; time will tell.

"Jimmy" 

A. T. G. 

Lowell, 1903. Animal Husbandry. Baseball, '29. 

"Did you ever hear this one?" and then Jim has a story 
for you, sometimes pure and sometimes not so pure. 
Jimmy's theory is, the less studying the higher marks and 
he has proved it to be true in his case. Jim is not so keen 
for social life but we have an idea his Ford could tell 
some tales which would be worth money to a "True 
Story" writer.

"Bill" 
A. T. G. 
Marblehead, 1907. Horticulture. Hockey, '29. 

Bill came to us this fall after spending a year at Essex 
Aggie. We find ourselves wishing that he had been here 
last year as we enjoy his society and slow drawling manner. 
Bill was our goal-keeper on the hockey squad. His cease- 
less line of chatter during a game, was good to hear. His 
pet expression is "you too", and is sure to be thrown at 
you at least once during your conversation with him.

Pres., 3, 4, 5. A. T. G. Sergeant-at-Arms. Athletic Edi- 
tor of the Shorthorn. Football, 1 ; Captain, 2. 
Hockey, 1, 2. Athletic Board, 2. 

Win is a fellow of good size and well he might have 
to be to stand up under this long list of activities. He can 
hold his own in about any argument. 

From the athletic field to the class room he is a leader, 
and getting out of three or four exams is no trick for him, 
but yet, "They tell me Winsor sleeps in class". Often Win 
can be seen sitting at his desk far into the night figuring 
out how much he will make on his pure bred Jerseys and 
what to put in his diary. Good luck to you. Win, we 
know you can bring home the prize.

A. T. G. 

Framingham, 1908. Floriculture. Football, '28 and '29. 

"Chick" is a fellow whom every one of his classmates 
knows as a flower lover, a football player or lastly as a 
quiet retiring yet talkative boy. He is quite interested in 
Hair-Tonic and is easily led into a discussion about the 
quality and merits of various preparations. "Chick" has 
been called, on many occasions, "Check-up-Cheney" be- 
cause of his habit of commenting upon others' ways, say- 
ings or actions. These methods of "Checking-up" may 
come in quite handy some day, "Chick."

"Ray" 
A. T. G. 
East Brimfield, 1909. Pomology. 

A jolly good fellow whose pursuance of the theoretical 
at Aggie was interrupted by the practical at Middlesex 
Fruit Farm, West Acton, Mass, Everything will be all 
right with us, Ray — Abraham Lincoln chopped wood for 
his start, so our expectations from you are numerous. To 
the farmer belongs the soil and, they say, good complexion. 
'Tis an ill wind that blows nobody good, Ray, but a few 
lessons from Aeolus would improve your style.

"Mert"

Chester, Mass., 1909. Animal Husbandry. An. Hus. Club. 
Basketball, '29. 

"Mert" is one of our tall boys who is always trying to 
come back with a better wisecrack than the other fellows. 
The first year "Mert" spent with us he was light-hearted 
and carefree, but placement changed him considerably. 
Now he looks forward to those two letters a week and we 
can often see him in very deep thought as he is wondering 
how soon he will be able to get back to his placement job 
which is waiting for him. 

"We often wonder whether he will be a part of the well 
established farm in Bedford.

"Bill- 
North Cambridge, 1906. Pomology. Baseball, '29. 

Not a traveling library but just a man with a thorough 
interest in all literature. 

We are told that one can get out of a thing only as 
much as they pur into it and if this is the truth Bill's two 
years here have been a howling success for he has studied 
(apparently) in the library by the hour. 

In Pomology Bill is a leader for he knows his assorted 
fruits. 

Bill has tentative plans he tells us regarding systematic 
crop raising, money saving plans, and if raising pigs he 
wants them near at hand. 

We wish you good luck in the fruit world and are de- 
pending on you for success.

"Denny" 
A. T. G. 
Quincy, 1907. Horticulture. Baseball, '29. 

"Denny" is one of those quiet members of the class, who 
probably wouldn't break any records as a movie star, but 
he is certain to succeed in anything at which he tries his 
hand. When it comes to knowing golf "Denny" takes 
the cake. He says little but it goes a long way. He has 
an active body and an able mind, and if you do not know 
him it is time you became acquainted.

"Red" 
A. T. G. 

Wilbraham, Mass., 1908. Football, '28, '29. Baseball, '29. 
Poultry Club, '28, '29. 

You cannot mistake him, the only one of his kind on 
the campus, such a tall clean-cut individual and of course 
his red hair predominating. 

Each week-end "Red" would journey to his home to see 
how his chicks were getting along and applied the knowl- 
edge he received in Poultry here at Aggie to his "flock" 
at home. Then of course he goes deer' hunting in the fall 
and dear hunting in the spring. 

"Red" was very prominent in his two year stay at Stock- 
bridge, football being his specialty, followed by frat bas- 
ketball. 

We feel certain, "Red", that you'll succeed in your 
Poultry endeavors.

A. T. G. 

Manchester, 1909. Floriculture. Prom. Committee. 

"Sometimes I'm happy and , sometimes I'm blue" is the 
name of a fox trot and Cliff reminds us of it although he is 
most decidedly happy here at Aggie. 

They say "Cliff" is erratic when fooling about in his 
room with pillows and bricks yet his major is Floriculture. 
At times "Cliff" enjoys hiking, dancing and indoor hockey 
but occasionally he really enjoys studying by the hour. 

We hope you enjoy your Floriculture work, "Cliff ", and 
never expect to find you in the ministry.

A student from the part of the country made famous by 
Joseph Lincoln's books. "Finn" is good company, but 
somehow we get the impression that he takes life a little 
too seriously. You never hear him complaining about his 
studies, he likes them, every last one. Approach him any 
time of day or at any respectable hour of the night and 
you will find him struggling with his books.

"Doc" is one of our worthy Hort. majors who hails 
from Pittsfield. 

"Now, listen, boy, if I go home this week-end, I ought 
to be able to clean up about fifty bucks." However, his 
pocketbook runs with the average. "Doc" is related to one 
of the town policemen but we might add that that has no- 
thing to do with his discipline over the Freshmen. We 
hear him say, "What are you doing this week-end? Oh! 
Guess I'll go to Holyoke." If you want to laugh ask him 
about his love affairs.

Tom is a sort of quartermaster general for the rest of

more he lets us have it. A fellow who is unusually willing 
to work for what he gets and to take what life gives him. 
His work was always conscientiously and creditably done 
and in his senior year he became our prize photograph 
manager. He is not a social fan but his friends know that 
any gathering is pleasanter for his presence.

Just as John is seen appearing in the distance a shout is

John is started. 

A very popular lad as he always has some good time 
pictured in his mind and likes going places and doing 
things. It is funny how Ebbie never fails, and to tell the 
truth usually is the first pupil to complete any assignment 
given to him by the Profs. This only goes to show that 
John is utilizing his time efficiently here at Stockbridge. 

Oh yes, John did go on placement in New Hampshire 
on a private estate known as the "Rocks," a very valuable 
general training as John has told us many times. We 
understand that New Jersey will be John's abode after 
graduating from Stockbridge and there display his skil' in

Charles is the much kidded boy from Whately. We

French's genetics course for a loop. Charley came to us 
from the tobacco fields to take horticulture in general. 
From what he thinks of last year's placement it will be 
tobacco growing again. A clever athlete and a lanky boy. 
He was of much help to the K. K. basketball team the past 
season. His cigarette habit did not seem in the least to 
hamper his wind and he sure was tested when the fresh- 
men thought they would relieve a certain senior of a 
mustache.

Ashland is the name. We do not know exactly what to 
say about Jim, but when anything is being done or some- 
thing is going on, Fleming is the center of it. Carnegie 
and Keene go pretty well for Jim, but lately we see him 
sporting a new Buick. From reports we know the home 
has rare beauty, — figure it out yourself. Basketball is where 
he shines brightest. In the frat games and as captain of

Charlie came to us in our second year from the Bristol 
County Agricultural School. Much was heard from Charlie 
when the Poultry Majors went on their famous strike. 
Charlie has the queerest and loudest laugh in the class. 
At first it was taken as a boisterous good-natured laugh 
but as we became used to it the laugh was very upsetting, 
especially to those who wished to sleep on cold balmy 
nights at K. K. Charlie is the best natured fellow and one 
of the fastest and flashiest men on campus. It was his 
speed which gave K. K. a fast moving quintet.

As for the golden part that remains to be seen. Silent

Floriculture fits him to a tee and believe me he sure 
knows his 'Posies'. According to John, Hort. majors do 
not rate like Flori men. Ask Gale what kind of a place

sleeping during dry lectures. Ed takes his Hort. seriously 
and we hope that his hours of study have not been wasted. 

Ed comes to us from Lenox, the home of New York's 
playground, and we expect that that is where his ideas on 
Italian gardens come from. Not so very long ago Ed 
walked into a lecture class. Part way through the hour he 
came to with a start and all eyes were focused on him at 
once. The professor asked what he wanted and "Gal" 
immediately said, "May I journey back to the math room 
and get my Genetics book — it's worth $3.00 to me." Then 
we wonder why profs get gray.

Archie is one of our staunch finger route boys. Holidays 
always find Archie on the road between Amherst and Man- 
chester-by-the-Sea. "Red" hopes to form half of the S. S. A.

Towering over all of us in height, "Stretch", with his

short ones of the class, listening to his never ending stories. 
Unfortunately "Stretch" was among the missing when we 
returned for the Spring term. He took advantage of an 
opportunity to secure a position that appeared to be worth- 
while. Poultry was his Major while here, so we presume 
he is doing some "tall" work with the chickens.

"Hennie" is one of the best known fellows on the cam- 
pus, and why? He was class president during our freshman 
year, has participated in a sport every terra while here at 
college and lastly, but not least, he has an active tongue. 
"Hennie" picked a good major, for Pomology seems to be 
very satisfactory to him and he has eaten more than a few 
apples and small fruits during his stay here. 

After he discharged his pucksters he distributed eggs and 
"Creeper" says it never rains but it pours. From "Hennie" 
we learn that enjoyment defers old age so he helps us with 
any fooling which is quite in his line, especially in the frat. 
Good luck in your endeavor, "Hennie", to raise the pro-

and keep the caterpillars in their tents.

He majors in Poultry, but don't think that that pleases 
him a bit, because most any morning will find him sleeping. 

Herb used to flash around in a "1492" Dodge Roadster 
which would go when it felt like it, — it never felt like it. 

Herb and "Pic" are the very best of friends which goes 
to show that sandwiches do help out a lot but no matter

Here's another boy who sports a new car every time he

Fords, but there are a few who still think Kenneth is a 
little flighty on the subject. Graves is really a married man 
and this is the chief reason he has been so much in our 
background. We sure have liked our rides to chapel 
although the ravine next to Flint Lab has scared us at times. 
Kenneth, by the way, is a real 'wheat' as he hails from 
Conway, the land of the free and the home of Animal Hus- 
bandry. Graves, in our minds, is doomed to success and 
we wish him the best of luck.

cording to "Ed" it's a mighty fine place to live in. He is 
quite prominent in social events and popular with all who 
know him, both men and girls. The Abbey as a whole 
calls him "Eddie." There is no doubt about it, he has that 
certain undefinable something that attracts. "Pickering" has 
been known to send flowers up to the Infirmary, and he has 
practically ruined the shrubbery outside one of the windows 
of said building. One gathers that there must have been 
an attraction within, and it was not the flowers, which had 
preceeded him, that he must see. We hope "Ed" will drive

He was noticeable about campus — tall, well-built with blue

he gave the hair a tug and the head a slap, with the air

action spelling "determination" — and laughs no end from 
the crowd as this or that offender went down under the

became this man as he assumed the duties of President of

He miraculously battles his way through another season of

had proven that capability topped his long list of assets.

But that's all right, "Bud," keep it up and who knows but 
what you will be a great farmer in the years to come.

We thank "El" for his interest in carrying on our financial

liberate enough hot air in the form of Guernsey dope, to

what his Hupmobile can do. Ayrshires seem to be his 
hobby just at present and his intentions are to run the home 
farm.

Roxbury, 1909. Horticulture. Hockey, '28. 

"Bunker, the Beau Brummel" devotee who sends the nice 
white bail sailing over the links. Add to this accomplish- 
ment, the perpetual recurrance of his name on the list of 
"those out of the final," and you have an idea that this man 
can afford to sprinkle his work with play. From his ardent 
interest in golf and golf courses we venture to predict that 
he will yet win national fame in his chosen line.

"Cap"

Club, ,28, '29. Baseball, '29. 

Cape Cod in person ; slow, good natured and as rugged 
as they make them. Although "Cap" hails from the Cape's 
largest duck farm he does not confine his enthusiasm en- 
tirely to ducks as he proved to us while in New York. We 
don't mean by this that "Cap's" a ladies' man. Far from 
that, for far indeed is the dance hall or female dormitory 
that has enclosed the captain. "Cap" is that fellow with 
the perpetual grin and the marvelous appetite from what we 
have observed. But epicure though he is he was the only 
senior on the '28-'29 basketball team and we the class of 
'29 take our hats off to him.

"Mac"

Northampton, 1908. Horticulture. 

"Mac" is from Northampton which with Coolidge's co- 
operation he has succeeded in placing on the map. He rates 
high at Stockbridge. I wonder how it is at Smith. In classes 
you can always find him at the back of the room taking it 
easy, checking-up on the Prof, or else snoring. It is too 
bad Prof. Towne hasn't a better eye for throwing chalk. 
"Mac" is another of the K. K. Basketball runnerups. It 
was his great playing that gave the K. K., the championship 
of Class A. "Mac" is one of those fellows who has taken 
his rounds behind the Physical Education Building. It is 
too bad he slipped and got a black eye. A cool man at all 
times, a dangerous man when old "Ireland" is up.

"Mac" 

New Bedford, 1907. Poultry. Poultry Club. Animal Hus-

An efficient poultryman from New Bedford. Bill sure 
knows his assorted poultry. He holds all records for speed 
in killing and dressing fowl at S. S. A. He is one of the 
lucky few who is able to support a new Ford. Bill is a 
quiet soul and a conscientious student. 

He is probably going to start a poultry farm down home 
and specialize in dressed poultry of all kinds.

A. T. G. 
Lowell, 1909. Horticulture. Art Editor Shorthorn. 

"Bill" is the ladies man. He is not only popular with 
the girls but also with the student body in general because 
of his carefree manner, he relieves the tension of work and 
worry. His one great weakiless is sleeping sickness. We 
all wonder what Bill tells the Director for his absences from 
classes. Mac, also, has a girl in every port, this is why we 
never see him around the "University" during the week- 
ends. The one thing that tones "Bill" down however is his 
room-mate and buddy Al. "Bill" is short, which is some- 
times a great hindrance to him for he is such a marvelous 
dancer, but he doesn't let his shortness worry his mind 
however.

Southington, Conn., 1909. Pomology. Baseball, '29. 

The little chap has won the heart of all who know him. 
"Sandy" has a manner of his own that appeals to everyone. 
He is chairman of the A. T. G. House Committee and how 
he asserts his authority. "Sandy" is quite short and dark — 
he has a Grecian profile that any one might envy and many 
do. He is a Pomology major so therefor has ample time 
to roam about campus with his "partner in crime," "Henny." 
If you can't find "Sandy" in bed or "Checking-up" about 
the Frat, try the Amherst theatre, he'll be sure to be there 
if he hasn't been thrown out.

We have several other students from Conn, enrolled in

and most unassuming. He is helpful in his relations with 
his fellow students and a fine friend when one really knows

When he gets his chickens however he will make them

North Dartmouth, 1909. Poultry. 

"Ozzy's" vocation is studying — especially poultry hus- 
bandry; his vocation is argumentative debating especially 
about poultry. Cape Cod claims him and a successful 
poultry business on that same Cape is the very zenith of his 
ambitions. At college his inseparable companionship with 
Cap Mayo should be noted — A Mack and Moran team in 
the embryo. It seems that extra-curricular activities do not 
interest him. Poultry seems to be a part of religion with 
him. Best wishes old boy, may good fortune attend your 
flight thru the years.

And simple truth his utmost skill."

All football men, animal husbandry majors and in fact 
all of his classmates know "Sparky." We have enjoyed 
having him with us a lot and missed him during his illness 
but for him, an appendix is a thing of the past. 

"Sparky" has sort of been our photographer and has done 
some good work, we find him following athletics, studying 
animal anatomy and, oh yes — he is fond of food and sleep. 

Best of luck "Sparky" and you are sure to win with 
animal husbandry as your partner.

The "Singing Fool" of Stockbridge. Floriculture is his 
forte and he is a pronounced florimaniac. He is a great 
man with the ladies, (Yeh?). He has quite often sworn 
off smoking for good and probably will continue to do so. 
He is, most doubtless, the greatest student North of the 
South Pole and a 95 drags his mark way down. He is 
either Damon or Pythias of a team of Damon and Pythias, 
and where you see one, the other is apt to be handy. They 
lived together for two years and its going to be tough 
to stop. 



"Bud" 

K. K. 

Lexington, 1909. Pomology. Baseball, '29. 

We all know "Bud" as an energetic Pomology major who 
seems to be on his way somewhere. "Bud" finds spare 
time, of course, during which he beats Joe in checkers or 
chess. He has the game down to a science all his own. 
At the pool table also he may be found, so you see he has 
a variation of accomplishments. Once we had the pleasure 
of riding in Bud's car — but not longer. We expect you, 
"Perk", to go down in history, as a good "apple" so we 
hope to learn of you raising them with great success. 





"Phelpsie" 
Lexington, 1909. Pomology. 

The man of renown who is one of the representatives 
we have of the famous battle of Lexington and Concord. 
As a class mate, he is known as one who is always inter- 
ested in us, sympathetic and ready to assist. Outside of 
classes he has been an active member of the Glee Club and 
a friend to all. He has many accomplishments but only 
under the most pressing conditions did he ever give us any 
knowledge of them. Noel has none of the characteristics 
of his birthplace about him now, as he can't even speak 
French. He is another one of those lucky fellows whose 
father owns a garage and salesroom. He really doesn't drive 
a horse and buggy although you often hear him say "Whoa 
Mare."

This young pool shark has, during his stay at the Stock-

Darwinian theory. He is planning on working at the college 
this summer teaching the profs, the art of Floriculture. 
"Dick" still maintains that the Baldwin originated in 
Woburn. "Dick" is very much alive but has not as yet 
become a feudal lord though he assumes the role of one 
here on campus. 



Clarence a. Pratt 

"Al" 
K. K. 
Bernardston, 1903. Horticulture. 

A jolly good fellow in every respect. "Al" is older than 
the rest of us so naturally takes his work a little more 
seriously than we do. Pratt's tardiness to classes was 
excusable because he worked, during his spare hours, at the 
extension office. He was one of the fortunate ones among 
us to have a girl friend with a car. Fortunately she lived 
in Conn, so "Al" was not able to have the car often. Pratt 
is a dogged worker and is sure to make a name for himself 
as well as for the school.

education, with the intention of showing the darkies how 
to get more milk out of their cocoanuts.

trial city of Lowell. He is a quiet and very likable sort of 
fellow — just under medium height, neat in appearance and 
well mannered. Glen certainly gave some of us a surprise 
when he delivered his first oration in Public Speaking class. 
He talked like a veteran and demonstrated, to us, that he

"Frankie" is a true friend and to know her is to love her. 
You can't stick her on her vegetables, except when she is

He is one of the few tillers of the soil who is majoring

health, wealth, and happiness. If you want to spend a few 
hours just talking, single out Smitty and he will meet your 
requirements gladly. He sure knows his parliamentary law, 
but this fact did not help him in Bus. Law. In the fall he 
was elected cheer leader of our class. He conscientiously 
attended all activities and endeavored to cheer for S. S. A.

Westboro's favorite son came to the campus as a woman 
hater but most any Saturday night you might see him 
promenading down the street with some fair lady. You of 
course realize that "Smitty" is one of our youngest class- 
mates so that explains in part why he admires high school 
girls. He is majoring in Dairy Manufacturing so he can 
economize on the soda fountain specialties, "Smitty" is 
small in stature but big at heart. He is always cheerful, and 
has a smile for everyone he meets. 



"Al" 
K. K. 
Brockton, 1907. Floriculture. Floriculture Club. 

Probably the outstanding event in this fellow's school 
career was the fall flower show. It was largely through 
his efforts that the main exhibit was displayed so attractively. 
His one aim in -life has been to flee from the shoe factories 
into the quiet and solitude of a greenhouse all his own. 
Do be careful of the little flowers, Alwyn, for you know 
you are a big boy and may not realize what pressure you 
are exerting on them. "Al" never has cared for the girls 
since his freshman year. He will fall some day tho, and 
great will be the fall thereof. Old reliable "Al" was made 
our monitor in Jan. 1929. From that time until commence- 
ment he eagerly checked our absences.

The word "Druppy" may not exactly typify George but 
perhaps it could be applied to him as he sits comfortably 
at the wheel of his Rickenbacker and tours the campus. 
His outstanding feature is that left hand of his. Its ac- 
complishments are astounding. If you have not seen 
"Druppy" in his track paraphernalia, you should consider 
your education sadly neglected. His "line of chatter" should 
insure at least partial success in life.

This illustrious son of Marlboro is quiet at times but 
beware when he wants to play pool or bridge. He has a 
voice that has volume and he certainly can use it if it so 
pleases him. "Steve" started school here with the intention 
of studying poultry but changed to pomology. If you want 
to know anymore about him — ask any member of the 
Economics class who went to New York with him. He 
has a keen sense of humor that is an asset to any man.

"Steve" who is a clear cut, good looking young man,

Our proficient treasurer and secretary of S. C. S. has helped

with a winning way, which gained for him many friends 
during his short stay here. We regret that he had only one 
year to spend with us. To all appearances, Warren, as he 
prefers to be called, attracts the attention of several of the 
co-eds, as well as some of the school teachers over in 
Hadley. We often wonder if it is him or the coupe that 
is the big drawing card. Perhaps he has that something 
known as "It." 'Well, Warren, take our advice and go to

then you won't give yourself away by falling asleep during

take a chance in the floriculture course at S. S. A. We were 
less fortunate than George in many respects. When our

"Ken" is another aspirant from West Hawley who de- 
cided that a little knowledge along Pomological lines would 
do him no harm ; thus his presence on the campus for the 
past two years. He is small in stature but that doesn't 
mterfere with his ability as a bowler, he is certainly pos- 
sessed with an eagle eye for the alleys. As a student, he is 
well up with most of the fruit men and doesn't burn an

the kind any fellow likes to have.

We wonder how this curly haired blonde evades the

he is human, and besides he goes home many week ends 
for no good reason at all. You wouldn't think to look at 
him that he had a temper would you? Actions speak 
louder than words. "Blondie" is usually docile enough but 
occasionally he goes wild. If you want to know the correct 
style in neckwear, seek out "Blondie" and he will be dis- 
playing it. Nothing ever worries this chap, not even final 
exams. He absolutely refuses to be hurried. "Never run 
to class even tho' late," is his motto.

North Brookfield, 1908, Animal Husbandry. Animal Hus-

Witt is another one of those practical thinking men that 
withdrew from the four year course to enroll in the Stock- 
bridge School. At first glance you can easily tell that 
"Witty" is not looking for a white collar job, because he 
rarely wears a necktie. He always has a long story to tell 
us about last night's show at the Amheist. He says he'd 
buy a season ticket, probably two, if they were on sale. 
'"Witty" works on a farm so that he can put his theories 
into practice. He is making sure that the Profs, are giving 
him the right dope. He has the right idea.

Easy going, never excited, one that stands out among all

first year at college was very quiet as far as we were con-

to his room seemed to take most of his time, although he 
would not let anything interfere with his attending the 
fraternity's gatherings such as house parties and dances. 
When Jim returned to his second year he began in a blaze 
of glory. Presiding over the fraternity and student council 
meetings when the presidents were away gave Jim an oppor- 
tunity to show us how meetings should be supervised. It 
was not long before all of us realized his ability and we 
acted accordingly by electing Jim Editor-in-Chief of the 
Shorthorn, a very responsible position. In everything he 
participated from the Glee Club to taking the boys for a 
ride in his new Ford. Jim has rated as a fine clean cut

"Chick". Folks, if you do not know "Bob." do not worry 
for he knows more about you than you yourself do. It is

but a fast worker. We wish we had the time and space to 
permit a revelation of "Bob's" life, occupation, and his 
unbelievable knowledge of everything and everybody. "Bob" 
has a jovial nature and is liked by everyone. He has no

As we compose our list of graduates, we become aware of a fact common 
to all graduating classes — that is, that the number of students completing 
their studies here is considerably smaller than that which registered two 
years ago. 

Illness, lack of funds and failure in studies made it necessary for some 
students to leave us. Still others took advantage of opportunities to secure 
worthwhile positions. 

It is to these friends, chums and comrades that we dedicate this page.

It was a day of hand shaking and renewing of old acquaintances when 
we once again set foot on Aggie's Campus, after having our six month's leave. 

There was a goodly score of freshmen for us to keep an eye on and make 
"toe the mark." This was accomplished with ease, and more honors were 
bestowed on the class of '29 when we thoroughly trounced our frosh, in the 
annual cap rush, without any casualties. 

The three clubs progressed rapidly and gained new members of sterling 
character. 

Receptions and dances made popular progress throughout the year and 
our athletic teams brought honor to our school. 

At the close of the winter term the placement training period started and 
we bade farewell to our frosh. With our numbers greatly diminished we 
continued our progress. The last term was filled with activities and before 
we could realize it commencement descended upon us. 

"We feel that the Class of '29 has done it's duty and made history. May 
the spirit be carried on.

"the old order changeth 
Yielding place to new." 

June again brings the age old conflict of pangs of regret at parting with 
the old, and keen anticipation to grapple with the new. 

Looking back over the year's accomplishments, we first recall the joy with 
which we four welcomed the ten in-coming co-eds. Then we remember the 
skepticism of our ability to properly initiate this chosen band. However our 
fears were ill grounded, as the freshmen came through initiation, and in fact, 
the whole year very creditably. 

Due to the fact that the majority of the members were "off campus" the 
question of a meeting place was vital until an available room in the "M" 
building was secured. 

The fall term was marked by "getting acquainted," initiation, Sunday 
night suppers at Miss Hamlin's, and the usual meetings. 

By the winter term we felt the desire for something more spectacular, so 
decided to celebrate the "Day of Hearts" namely Valentine Day, by holding 
the annual dance, which proved to be a successful event. 

The winter term marked the formal adoption of a new name, which 
incidently is secret. 

Lastly came the farewell banquet at the Lord Jeff, with the freshmen 
leaving for placement soon after. 

And now to you Freshmen we intrust the spirit of the sorority with the 
confidence that it will be adequately cherished.

On return to the campus after a hard six months work, a small enthusiastic 
group gathered together, in the much improved A. T. G. rooms, to discuss 
plans for the coming year. Several smokers were held so that we might become 
better acquainted with the many new freshmen. Twenty-eight responded to 
the bids that were sent out, and they were soon seen around campus carrying 
out the many rules given them. This was followed with plenty of paddling 
and later a hike around the Pelham hills. They went through the stiff initiation 
with the spirit that proved them to be a fine bunch of fellows. 



Our social functions started off well with a formal house party at the 
nen's Club in Amherst. Our ranks were strengl 
of eight new members at the second rushing season. 



Women's Club in Amherst. Our ranks were strenghtened with the addition 



During the winter term a tournament was held with the Kolony Klub 
consisting of bridge, bowling and basketball, A. T. G. meeting the stiff opposi- 
tion to win the cup and to enjoy a smoker given at the expense of the losing 
frat. In the winter term the two clubs enjoyed themselves immensely at an 
inter-frat dance. As the time came for the freshmen to go out on placement 
a banquet was held and a very fine group of officers were elected for the 
coming year. Elmer Crockett, Pres.; Walter White, Vice-Pres.; Norman S. 
Felch, Sec, and Cloyes Gleason, Treas. 

In closing our fraternity life a reunion was held, followed by a frat dance 
which proved to be the big event of the year.

Fraternity life is an experience and education that many of us have' 
enjoyed and benefited by, along with our other courses of study. There has 
existed a relationship of closer contact within the chosen few that will be 
looked back upon in years to come, when old memories are revived. 

The fall term started off with a bang and the rushing season was on. 
For over a month their smallness and their insignificance was impressed upon 
the freshmen initiates. This ended, to their great joy, with the Initiation 
Banquet, at Draper Hall. 

A fall house party was held, and proved a great success. With the 
assistance of A. T. G. an interfraternity dance was held at the Memorial 
Building, during the winter term. This was an event to be long remembered 
by all those present. 

Another interesting feat during the winter term was the triangular tourna- 
ment that was arranged with A. T. G. Basketball, Bridge and Bowling were 
the chosen events. A. T. G. was the winner of this competition and was 
presented with a loving cup. 

It is a pleasure to note that K. K. placed second highest in the inter- 
fraternity basketball league. 

The freshmen's stay with us ended with a Farewell Banquet, at the Lord 
Jeffery Inn. 

With the coming of spring term our plans naturally turned to Commence- 
ment, and before we realized it, our fraternity life, on campus, had practically 
ended. There remained the Prom House Dance which was given due con- 
sideration with the result that it was the best event of the year.

THE GLEE CLUB 

The Glee Club, which was organized in '28, started its activity in the fall. 
The Club was fortunate in again obtaining, as director, Mr. Richter who is 
an able leader and well versed in music as shown by the type of work he did 
last year. In the organization of the club it was necessary to select officers. 
The following were elected: President, Robert Leland; Vice-president, 
Stillman H. Parks; Secretary and Treasurer, William T. Hermann; Librarian, 
Keith G. Eldridge. Taft, a member of the class of '30, served as pianist. The 
Club progressed so well, that Mr. Richter felt that it was capable of pre- 
senting a group of songs in Chapel. The purpose of the club is to promote 
music in the Stockbridge School. Because of the keen interest that was shown 
by the members of the class of '30 in the Club, it is felt that the organization 
will be even more of a success in the future than it has been in the past. 



STOCKBRIDGE SCHOOL ORCHESTRA 

Through the capable efforts of Kenneth C. Leonard, '30, a new organiza- 
tion. The Stockbridge School Orchestra, has been introduced, and no doubt, 
has come to be a permanent establishment in our group. The call for musi- 
cians resulted in the forming of a fair sized orchestra with which Mr. Richter, 
our music director, was able to secure quite noticeable results. At the last 
chapel exercise of the term, the organization made their first public perform- 
ance, which we hope will stimulate more interest in music, so that in the 
coming years we can look forward to the continuation of this new feature.

TOMMY 
By Howard Lindsay and Bertrand Robertson 

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French of N. Y. 

Tommy, is the story of the youth who brings candy to his would-be- 
mother-in-law, cigars to his would-be-father-in-law, and shows himself such a 
paragon of virtue that the daughter's natural tendency to love him is checked. 
Her parents, you understand, are eternally pushing her into Tommy's arms. 
An uncle in the house, who, being a local political boss, has little other moral 
feeling than an admiration for Abraham Lincoln, detects the destruction of 
the romance and puts into Tommy's mind a scheme to mend matters. This 
is to do something awful, and get himself thrown from the house. Tommy 
succeeds in so doing, not only by seemingly repudiating his word of honor to 
his prospective father-in-law over a land deal (manipulated by the political 
moralist just mentioned), but also by certain unusual exhibitions of bad 
manners. Tommy finally clears himself of the insinuations against his char- 
acter; and the girl, who has meantime nearly tied herself up to a young fellow 
of the go-getter type, is brought to happiness in Tommy's arms.

One sunny day last fall saw the inception of one hundred thirty-three 
verdant freshmen to the fair campus of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. 
The large trees, which contribute in a vast measure to the beauty of the Aggie 
Campus, the spaciousness of the college grounds, and the number of buildings, 
as contrasted to the high schools with which most of us were familiar, made a 
good impression upon our minds. 

We, the class of 1930, S. S. A., represent eight states of the union, and 
two foreign countries, one on this side of the ocean and one on the other. 

The first two nights after arriving, we were entertained at two banquets, 
at which the Director and several professors addressed us, introducing Aggie 
life and the various departments here. After being cordially greeted, we were 
made to feel at home and at ease, which meant a lot, and helped to 
acclimate us. 

Of course, before coming here, we had heard rumors concerning the status 
of freshmen at institutions in general. We were not to be disappointed, as 
our friends the seniors, levied upon us certain impositions; one being the 
constant wearing of the little blue caps which indicated to the world that the 
wearers were freshmen in the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. 

Some of us had the opportunity to be pledged to either fraternity or 
sorority, where we found an atmosphere which proved to be a large factor in 
our college life. We discovered also, that fraternity life is a course in soci- 
ology itself. 

After having been tendered a reception by the upper classmen, we in turn, 
entertained them for an evening. Both of these functions, which were held 
in the Memorial Building, helped us to become acquainted with each other, 
and the members of the graduating class. 

The freshmen are represented on all varsity athletic teams, in fact making 
up the majority of the letter men of the basketball. The boys' class did very 
creditable work, while the girls' team hopes to do better next year. Co-ed 
athletics were supplemented by the riders.' unit, and gym classes. 

Although not a major part of their work the co-eds took active interest in 
supposedly masculine pursuits. 

About three months after electing Lester Morrill as temporary class chair- 
man, the following were elected as permanent officers: President, Elmer 
Crockett of Rockport, Maine; Vice-President, Charles Y. Becker of Westport, 
Conn.; Secretary, Agnes K. Tamm of Astoria, N. Y., and Treasurer, Thomas 
E. Curran, a loyal son of Bay State, from Danvers. 

Now that our school year is coming to a close, we wish to extend our 
thanks and appreciation to the class of 1929 for their helpful guidance and 
keen interest in us. After having gone through that mystic adventure called 
"Placement Training," we hope to fill the shoes of those seniors, who have so 
ably taken up the reins of their predecessors.

Jfoatball l^cam 

Through the winter term of 1928 football interest ran high. About fifteen 
of this year's seniors reported regularly to Coach Ball at the Drill Hall for 
winter practice with the aim to build a team that would take our old rival, 
Deerfield, in the fall. A week before school opened regular football practice 
was resumed with a squad of approximately thirty men including some promis- 
ing freshman material. The team was captained by Winsor C. Brown and 
managed by Leonard R. Parkinson. 

Newburyport High 6 — Stockbridge 
Our season opened with a long overnight trip to Newburyport, but there 
we found misfortune's cards stacked against us. Our regular center was sud- 
denly taken sick having not a single man with experience at his position to 
take his place. Though our offense was completely crippled we put up a de- 
fensive line of fighting strength that our opponent's backfield could not even 
bend. Try as we would, continued fumbles and a misinterpreted signal which 
resulted in a blocked punt cost us the game. 

Keene Normal School 2 — Stockbridge 13 
We took a long trip to Keene to play an unknown and undefeated team. 
It was a grim battle in a drizzling rain with every man giving all he had to 
throw off our losing streak. That steadily smashing drive that Jack Hall put 
into every play, an eighty yard run by Ed Hill and the line bucking of Tom 
Curran drove us through to our first victory.

South Deeriield — Stockbridge 13 

After watching our second team beat Bennington High 35 — 6 we played 
South Deerfield High on our home field. Though a fast fighting team they 
were rather light and we easily held them scoreless. 

Vermont Academy 19 — Stockbridge 6 

"With a slightly revised system of plays we went into this game with a 
driving offense that took our rather confident opponents completely off their 
guard and netted us a touchdown early in the first quarter. But though the 
rest of the game we stopped their famous end runs cold, some beautifully 
executed forward passes resulted in three touchdowns for them and we were 
forced to take our second defeat. 

Holyoke High 7 — Stockbridge 6 

A trip to Holyoke resulted in a game played under rather trying condi- 
tions. On an unlined field with only the referee's imagination as to where the 
ball was or should be we suffered offside penalties to the total of over one 
hundred and fifty yards. Fight as they would the team could not throw off 
that handicap and went down to a third defeat by one point. 

Pittsfield High 6 — Stockbridge 13 

Our opponents came here with one of the strongest teams they have had 
in a number of years but our team had set their pace and was not to be 
stopped. Though the game was rather slow and uninteresting we made two 
early touchdowns and held them to only one. 

Deerfield Academy 13 — Stockbridge 6 

This was the game we had for months looked forward to and it proved to 
be a battle that we will never forget. Stockbridge scored first but it was soon 
balanced by a touchdown for Deerfield through a beautiful forward pass. 
Though our opponents were at the peak of a most successful season, Stock- 
bridge repeatedly took back every yard that Deerfield gained. Twice each 
team with its back to its own goal line held the other for downs. A second 
forward pass in the last quarter gave our rivals the winning touchdown. The 
defense work of both teams set off by the ball carrying of Hall and Hill, the 
tackling of Oksanen and the two beautiful Deerfield forward passes provided 
a game full of thrills. The atmosphere of it all spoke of many men, who were 
giving their best in the last game of football they would ever play. "We had 
lost our objective game but there was a lot of consolation in the words of the 
Deerfield coach when afterward he said, "That was the cleanest and hardest 
fought game played on our field this year." 

81 




1^2^ ^ )SAorijFLorT}^ f 

All in all we had a fairly successful season, scoring 57 points to our 
opponents 53. One of the hardest blows we had to take was the loss of two 
of our best backfield men, Henry Graf because of a severe neck injury and 
"William Chace who had a bone broken in his foot. Jack Hall was our out- 
standing star through his ball carrying and tackling. To our coach Red Ball 
we wish to express our appreciation for the effort he has spent in molding us 
into a team that should come the nearest to beating Deeriield of any club from 
our school. We look forward to '30 having a still more successful season than 
ours has been. 

Edwin Hill was elected captain and Hans Stephansen manager for next 
season. 

The team: L. E., Cheney; L. T., Curran; E.G., Brown (Capt.); 
C, Skovron; R. G., Sylvia; R. T., Oksanen; R. E., Dibble; Q., Hall, R. H. B., 
Hill; L. H. B., Hakkinen; F. B., Hirst. Subs: Eine, Greene, Smith, Durkin, 
Hero, Eeonard, Mann, Sawyer, Caldwell, Hart; backs: Ashworth, Hayward, 
Parks. 

Insignia were awarded to Captain "Winsor C. Brown of North Attleboro, 
William S. Chace of New Bedford, Oliver F. Cheney of Framingham, Eysleford 
A. Dibble of Wilbraham, and Henry Graf of Newburyport. Sweaters and 
insignia were given to Servetus T. Ashworth, Jr., of Westboro, Thomas Curran 
of Danvers, Harold Durkin of Waltham, Albert M. Greene of Ashland, Arvo

S?a£tfeetball tEeam 

The season opened with rather a strange situation confronting our coach. 
There was not a single letter man on the squad and no captain. Early in the 
season William C. Bower was chosen leader and Gordon C. Hulbert managed 
the team. 

Hopkins Academy 8 — Stockbridge 23 
The first game of the season was played on our own floor. Though the 
men had never played together before they worked smoothly and were easily 
victorious. 

Northampton High 30^Stockbridge 11 
With four regulars out because of sickness the team put up a good fight 
but it was to no avail against their opponents' championship quintet. 
Arms Academy 15 — Stockbridge 14 
This was a slow game throughout. At the end of the first hali Stock- 
bridge led 8 to 3 but failed to hold their own in the last period. 
South Deerfield High 23 — Stockbridge 16 
Through a lead of 7 points gained in the first half we were forced to take 
our third defeat though through the excellent work of Captain Bower, Stock- 
bridge held its own in the last half. 

New Salem Academy 19 — Stockbridge 56 
A complete walk away in which our team at once took the lead and was 
at no time threatened. Captain Bower scored 18 points. 

83 




1^2^ -^ )SAortjfLorri^ c 



Clarke School 29 — Stockbridge 27 
With a fast passing attack developing, our team went to Northampton to 
play Captain Bower's Alma Mater. Both teams dickered for the lead through- 
out the game and, as one spectator puts it, the final whistle happened to blow 
while Clarke was holding it. 

Northampton Commercial 27 — Stockbridge 24 
Playing against a much heavier and faster quintet our team put up a 
stubborn fight but their opponents were not to be denied. 

Sacred Heart 14 — Stockbridge 19 
Another fast and hotly contested game against opponents who were pretty 
confident having piled up a big score last year. Capt. Bower and his team 
mates squared matters very nicely though. 

Keene Normal 34 — Stockbridge 16 
A long trip was taken to New Hampshire only to have our team beaten 
very decisively on our opponents' floor. The loss of Captain Bower and Morrill 
during the game because of injuries crippled the team a good deal. 

Amherst High 13 — Stockbridge 19 
Although our team came through with their fourth victory, this game 
was rather a poor exhibition of basketball being slow and uninteresting 
throughout. 

Turners Falls High 16 — Stockbridge 19 
Against an over-confident team Stockbridge came into its own and held 
their high scorer to only three baskets in place of his usual eight or ten, in 
the meantime piling up a score of their own through the excellent work of 
the forwards. 

Smith Aggie 13 — Stockbridge 14 
A very close fast game with neither team really able to break the other's 
defense. 

Holyoke High 30 — Stockbridge 9 
Our last game, played away from home and against a far superior club. 
Holyoke had everything their own way throughout. 

The team: C, (Capt.) Bower; R. F., Sarris; L. F., Swain; R. G., Morrill; 
L. G., Coyle. Subs.: Mayo, Cottrell, Oksanen, Shats, Hayward and Smith. 

Andreas Sarris was elected captain and Arthur Cutrumbes manager for 
next year. 

Sweaters and insignia were awarded to Captain William C. Bower, Joseph 
Coyle, Walter H. Mayo, Lester Morrill, Andreas T. Sarris and Gordon C. 
Hulbert.

Under the guidance of our new coach "Chick" McGeoch hockey practice 
opened with many promises of a good season. The team was captained by 
Henry Graf, Jr., and managed by George C. Beals. 

Greenfield High 3 — Stockbridge 2 

For our first game we took anotlier trip up the valley. From the begin- 
ning our forward line outskated and out-played our opponents but some of 
our unfortunate breaks from the football season seemed to be still following us 
for in an unlucky moment Hoyt accidentally flipped the puck into our own 
goal. Then again after some beautiful stick work in which Graf sucked the 
goalie out he drove a perfectly placed shot against the back of the net for 
almost in the same instant some one rammed the cage and turned it around. 
Deerfield Academy 5 — Stockbridge 

Here we were completely outclassed. Hoyt and Graf were working hard 
and fast as usual but somehow the old team work was lacking. Loss of our 
regular goalie. Bill Brown, hurt quite a lot also. 

Williston Academy 5 — Stockbridge 1 

Another game away from home and our Jinx still seems to follow us. 
Throughout the first two periods we kept the fight constantly on their side of 
the ice. Though our forward line worked perfectly the excellent work of 
their goalie and an off day for ours spelled our third defeat. 
Brattleboro High 4 — Stockbridge 3 

This was the most discouraging defeat of our whole season for while our 
whole team was giving their very best and playing tip top hockey we were 
forced to go down before a club that we were skating circles around. Simply 

85 




CThe ^1^2^ --^ )SAorijfhori}^ r 



because our regular goalie was kept out of the game and an absolutely green 
man took his place. He did his best but almost every goal was made on long 
easy shots from center ice. 

Greenfield High 4 — Stockbridge 5 

Our first reward in a season of hard work and rather unfortunate breaks. 
With our old goalie back we went up against Greenfield on our own ice. 
Once given the support that it deserved our forward line showed that they 
had the real scoring punch. 

WiUiston 1 — Stockbridge 2 

Although we were late in breaking into the winning column, this game 
closed the season in a most satisfactory manner for our opponents had been 
beaten only once before and were considered one of the best prep school teams 
in the east. Both teams were hindered by soft ice but the determination of 
our men and a little over-confidence on their part gave us the edge and for 
two periods had things pretty much our own way. At the end WiUiston was 
sending everything they had down the ice but it was too late to deprive us of 
our victory. 

A series of class games were played evenings under the lights. In these 
we held second place having lost one game early in the season to the Fresh- 
men by a 3 to 2 score. The other scores were as follows: S. S. A. 4 — 
Seniors 1, S. S. A. 2 — Juniors 1 and S. S. A. 5 — Sophomores 1. Although the 
Frosh took the series it is interesting to note that they scored only 7 points 
against our 13- 

Although all but one of the letter men graduate, White, the only fresh- 
man regular will have some good material to build his 1930 club around in 
R. Brown, H. Durkin, Baummer, D. Parks, and J. Hastings all of whom did 
creditable work this year in relieving the regular men. Walter White was 
elected captain and William Hodges manager. 

The team: C, Hoyt; R. W., Graf, Capt.; L. W., White; R. D., Brown; 
L. D., Hall; Goal, Wm. Brown and Stevens. Subs: Eyeberse, R. Brown, 
Durkin, Parks, Baummer, Hastings, Hohman, and Caldwell. 

Insignia were awarded to Captain Graf of Newburyport, Herman Hoyt 
of Newton, Winsor C. Brown of North Attleboro, and John W. Hall of 
Andover. Sweaters and insignia were given to Walter White of Marlboro, 
Clarence E. Stevens of Marlboro, and Manager George C. Beals of New 
Britain, Conn.

TRY AGAIN 
Why worry over failures 
And mistakes that you have made? 
They're just a lot of burdens 
On your hands for which you've paid. 
Use all your energy and strength 
To master self control. 
Make up your mind to forge ahead 
Until you reach your goal. 

You can not turn time back again. 
No matter how you try, 
So what's the use of brooding 
Over faults that have gone by? 
Use them all for stepping-stones 
And if you slip or fall, 
Get right up and start again 
And climb above them all. 

There's one advantage which you have. 

And that's a help to you; 

At least you know the bad results 

Of what you have gone through. 

And in the future you can tell 

From your experience 

Just what is good or bad for you, 

You know the consequence. 

If we didn't have to struggle 
With ourselves for victory 
Over obstacles and habits 
And temptations' urging plea. 
Where would be the triumph 
Or the joy that comes to one, 
And that inner satisfaction 
Of knowing you have won. 

If God decides to let you live 
Throughout the coming night, 
And gives you one more chance to see 
The glorious morning light, 
Rejoice within thy weary heart 
That He has given you 
Another day to try again. 
And then begin anew.
