Agricultural (l^pportumties! in Jgeto Cnglanb 

'TpHE fundamental cause for the present agitation for "economic equality for agriculture" is 
•*■ that deflation after the War hit agriculture harder than it did other industries and vocations. 
This is not mere opinion or resentment as some city-dwellers seem to think. The actual fact is 
that the purchasing power of the farmer's dollar, which represents the results of his year's efforts 
in contrast with that of other workers whose products he has to buy, fell as low as 68 cents at one 
time. It is now gradually coming back, but is still too low to give agriculture its fair share of the 
national prosperity. 

Many of the present efforts to improve the situation are misguided. The solutions offered 
would fail to relieve the situation if put into operation. This is because they are directed toward 
a purely local situation rather than a national policy. But others have a very definite purpose 
back of them to decrease the spread between the rising costs of production and lowering selling 
prices of farm product?. 

From any of these which may be put into successful operation, New England agriculture is 
bound to receive very considerable benefit. The present status is that we are competing with 
products of other states for a market which is overstocked. It is the intent of all sound legislation 
to relieve excessive marketing costs, promote more rational production programs, and adapt 
agricultural procedures to modern industrial needs and conditions. 

When any of these efforts succeed, Massachusetts farmers are in a peculiarly favorable posi- 
tion to profit from them. Nearness to markets, with consequent low transportation costs and the 
absence of excessively inflated land values, are two very favorable features of our farming 
situation. We do not have so abundant a store of native soil fertility to draw upon as do the mid- 
west prairie farmers; but our agriculture is already finding programs for production which success- 
fully meets this handicap. These programs call for the production of farm crops and animal 
products for which New England has natural advantages which permit our farmers to compete 
successfully in our great markets with similar products from other parts of the country or world. 
These are usually the high-quality and high priced products which constitute the "cream of the 
market" trade. It is in this particular type of products that the largest opportunity for profit is 
to be found, rather than in the so-called "staple foods" to which the farming possibilities of large 
areas of the West are limited. Hence, it is in this field that future opportunities for New England 
farmers are very hopeful. 

With general conditions improving, I look for favorable days ahead. I even expect to see 
some of our "abandoned farms" brought back into production again. Also, I should not be sur- 
prised to see the trend of industrialization of the State lessened at least to the extent of an increas- 
ing rather than a decreasing percentage of rural population. 

Seasonal exchange of labor between agriculture and manufacturing will help with some of the 
labor problems of both, and provide better labor incomes for some types of workers. Decentraliza- 
tion of city dwelling, resulting both from city congestion and from the possibility of rural homes for 
city workers now that good roads and automobile transportation are available, will help to improve 
rural living conditions. 

Altogether, it seems to me that the outlook for New England agriculture is really better than 
it has been for the past fifty years. It no longer has to compete with a constantly increasing new 
agriculture in the West, on newer fertile lands and with more favorable climatic conditions for 
crop production, as it has had to since the post-Civil War developments in the West. 

Hence, I believe that the young man who is now preparing for intelligent work and manage- 
ment on a farm in New England has now an excellent outlook and opportunity for a highly satis- 
factory future.

I THINK we sometimes need to have recalled to our minds how much the spirit 
and determination of a man have to do with his ultimate success in life. Educa- 
tion itself is a tremendous lever for success, but the dynamic force called courage, 
determination, grit, or what you will, is the spark which releases the energy in the 
explosive mixture of life and work. I think the two terms cannot well be separated 
if we consider the importance of joy in and love for one's task. True work must be a 
Uveable, loveable part of a man's existence if the finest satisfactions are to be secured. 
Neither can the best work be done without a zest in the task, a spirit of enjoyment 
and pleasure in the job confronting us. And right here comes the art in the job, 
the true culture and appreciation that come from doing the task, no matter how 
humble or routine, just as well as is humanly possible, and with a professional under- 
standing of the skill and craftsmanship which you have employed in the work. 
Such results, such satisfying reactions, do not come to the unskilled, untrained 

And so, to you men and women who are completing your two years of training 
with us this June, I want to urge the importance of that age-old cry of the Psalmist: 
"Create in me a clean heart, O God; 
And renew a right spirit within me." 

A recent article in the press summarizes nicely the elements of training for the 
best citizenship. 

"The most desirable citizen will have good health and also the habit of observ- 
ing the laws of health ; a taste for sports and the 'safety habit' ; besides the learning 
of his country, he will desire to enlarge his knowledge of the world. He will seek at 
least such an elementary acquaintance with the sciences as will enable him to under- 
stand fairly well the phenomena and machinery of the world he lives in ; he will have 
command of the common arts. The men will have certain manual skills and the 
women others, but both will have the ability to dig in the dirt and to plant and cul- 
tivate vegetables, flowers, and fruit." 

"This most desirable citizen will have a vocation intelligently chosen and ade- 
quately prepared for and a character that will insure the permanence of his social 
duties, first to the family and then to the State, including an obligation to be in- 
formed, to vote and to accept office when called upon to do so." 

What has your education here given you to meet these standards? Has it, 
like the well-coached athlete, helped you to better run your race of life?

/^UR two years on the campus have terminated. To most 
^^ of us they have been two years of extreme joy, pleasure, 
and good fellowship. Perhaps not all of us have fully 
appreciated all that has been done for us during our stay here 
and if this annual. The Shorthorn, will help us to remember 
those who have so untiringly strived to help us, its purpose 
will have been accomphshed. It is with mingled feelings of 
joy and sorrow that we approach the last days of our two 
years stay at M. A. C. and as we are about to start on a new 
journey in life, we hope that we will be able to live worthy 
lives, lives that will honor those that have stood by us so 
faithfully during the two years, and that we will be able to 
carry the standard of Stockbridge to new heights.

"Smoky" is a young man who is friendly to all, 
but intimate with few. He seems quiet to those 
who do not know him, but his real friends tell us 
that he is full of fun. He has majored in Vegetable

successful in his business career.

Skip has charge of the V.ctrola at the K. K. house. 
He sure keeps it in good condition and believes in 
giving it a lot to do. His chief indoor sport is play- 
ing records on this Vic or else trying out new ones 
at the music store. He is quiet sometimes (when 
asleep). He bursts into his room at the "Frat" like 
a lion but usually goes out like a lamb after his room- 
mates get through with him (?). 

Women are not dominant in "Skip's" life at pres- 
ent, but he seems to have a weakness for them some- 
where in his heart (We wonder why). 

"Skip" stands high in his class, and when it comes 
to flowers, the boy is right there. 

His ambition is to own a greenhouse some day. 
Go to it "Skip" you're the kind who delivers the 
the goods.

Although "Dick" always sits in the front row in 
class he manages to get more than his share of sleep 
there and it is one of his accomplishments to be able 
to get out of bed and make class in nine minutes. 

As manager of the football team Dick certainly 
did a fine job and should be congratulated for it. 
Dick is always around when there is a good discus- 
sion going on and he also has some good arguments. 
It's a sure thing that Dick will make good in what 
ever he attempts, and we all wish him success.

If you see a dejected looking object, wrapped in 
an old black sheepskin, big white soled overshoes, 
concealing their share of tight legged, thread bare 
pants, and the entire pathetic outfit topped off with 
a moth eaten blue watch cap, ambling about campus, 
why don't call out the blood hounds for it's only 
"Charlie" going to class. Likewise if you see a tall 
slim well turned out young man, dressed to the 
limits of fastidiousness, with his Stetson set at a 
rakish angle — walking briskly toward town, why 
don't pull your daughter off the sidewalk in fear of 
the city slicker, for it's no other but Charlie again —

at Holyoke. However — good luck Charlie — and

Colonial Gardens and the history of the rocking

or dreaming. The rest of her activities are too 
numerous to mention. Any job she undertakes is a

over the forty odd miles of road, to the "wife." 
Gene is a "one man dog," literally speaking, with 
eyes for no other but "the one and only." He took 
his studies seriously however, and though we all 
know of his humorous side, he never let his play

If Prof. Packard had kept his mind on this particu-

would have been gratified to note that at least part 
of his lectures on preventing colds was observed. 
Ralph put on his rubbers with the first drop of rain 
last fall and for all we know he may wear them to 
bed as he has never appeared without them since. 
But "Brownie," is like that, always considering the 
sober side of life. However, he does have his 
moments, so to speak, much the same as everybody 
else does. When Ralph comes out with one of his 
sudden outbursts which reminds one of an extremely 
heated sermon at church everyone is forced to sit 
up and take notice, Ralph generally says something 
worth listening to. His particular "hobby" the 
past two terms seems to have been, "Plant Insects 
and Diseases." He was completely wrapped up in 
this subject, he even discussed it with the Director. 
Ralph is really an excellent student and a good all 
around fellow and is well liked by all, and Stock- 
bridge could use many more just like him.

A studious man about Campus, always on his

His excellent work throughout his two years stay at 
Stockbridge has always been preceeded by frequent 
visits to the office of the Prof, in question. This 
may account for the resulting high marks, or then 
again it may only account for his weakness in pounc- 
ing upon misplaced "don'ts," and other common 
grammatical errors of his fellow classmates. But 
Richard is an earnest student and should go far in 
upholding the traditions of Stockbridge, providing 
his early whistling does not evoke the wrath of his 
neighbors to too great an extent. His whistling is 
generally welcome among his classmates, however, 
even if he doesn'nt always keep in tune. We all

Charles Henry, entered the Stockbridge School of

rather shy and modest during his first year, but, oh, 
how he blossomed out in his second year. He enjoys 
flattery, but it really doesn't seem to make him con- 
ceited. He may be easily identified on the campus 
by his walk and collegiate style of dress. When 
he joined the A. T. G. in his second year he was pick-

without a squeal and has proven himself a fine frater-

When he wasn't taking dancing lessons at Draper, 
he could be found doing "nite inspection" at the 
poultry plant. Alone? Oh, no! We expect to 
find Frank running a big Wyandotte farm in Brain-

"Have you got a butt?" seems to be an economical 
expression. As a Greenskeeper he knows his grasses

"Bill" has been one of those, that we all expect to 
be, "a married man." Evidently marriage life does 
not interfere with choosing a vocation, because 
"Mister Eva" certainly has shown extreme interest 
in his choice. Bill's ability to raise flowers is un- 
limited and he should be on top within a month or 
two after leaving the "University." We all wish 
him luck in all of his undertakings and hope that we 
will hear from him in a big way in a few years.

"Norm" is the official A. T. G. hash slinger in the 
dining hall, if he makes use of all the criticisms he 
receives he should be pretty good. 

This handsome fellow with the nice, curly, black 
hair should make a big hit with the girls, but he 
won't have anything to do with them. Poor boy, 
he doesn't know what he is missing or maybe it is 
the girls that are doing the missing. 

Well Norm if you can sling flowers the way you 
sling hash you should be a big success.

This outstanding individual did not have any

weeks before he was unanimously elected by the 
Student Council as "Wise Guy No. 1." As we 
came to know him better we found him to be a great 
fellow who hides a depth of sterling quality, that 
only his closest friend can gain. We are undecided 
as to beliefs about the fairer sex, at social events we 
find him with the cream of the Abbey. Also due to 
the fact that most every week-end he leaves Amherst 
we are inclined to believe there is a great attraction 
elsewhere. His trip to New York brings to us many 
interesting tales. 

Seriously, Mike is a first class pomologist. He 
has done some very fine things on his orchard in

him in his line.

is to the most of us. He's our example of a perfect 

That he still does possess more or less of his bash- 
ful nature is exemplified by the fact that he has been 
endeavoring for two years to get up sufficient courage 
to make himself known to a certain member of the

this goes to press and it begins to look as tho he will

expert in animal nutrition, pugilist, toreador, and 
Irishman. "Rosie" has a wonderful brain, but like 
all masterminds his methods baffle us at times. 

One night he took "Duke" and "Lord" sleigh 
riding. Result — "Lord" rode the horse home bare- 
back while "Rosie" and "Duke" walked. If Animal 
Husbandry gives Rosie a fair deal the fairer sex have 
then his success is well assured and we wish him well.

"Peab" is the kind of a fellow who does not say 
much, but when he does speak there is golden com- 
mon sense in every word and real deep thought too. 
Because of his quietness he always had the advan- 
tage over the fellows at the boarding house, for he 
would eat while the rest talked. 

For a long time "Peab" disappeared every other 
Friday night and we finally ran him down one night 
and found him at the Grange, where he had a special 
attraction of his own. 

We have heard that "Peab" has a great weakness 
for Sculptury, and generally carries a ladder with 
him while studying it. 

Peab is bound to succeed with his quiet straight 
thinking ways, and we all wish him the best of suc- 
cess at whatever he undertakes.

Art is a very quiet appearing fellow, but all who 
know him, will say that he is very much the opposite 
when a good time is too be had. 

He has done some good work with the Y. M. C. A. 
here and has been prominent in his fraternity. Art 
was one of the unlucky students who had a Saturday 
class thru one term, but he did not accept it without 
protest. However they still have the Saturday 

Among other things Art is one of the leading meat 
cutters in S-7 and doubtless he will be a leader in 
whatever work he takes up after leaving school.

is ouiet. However, on becoming better acquainted 
with Norm, you discover that behind that quiet 
look is a very five spirit. His cheery disposition 
seems to brighten the darkest day, and make us all 
glad to be numbered among his friends. 

Norm is always the same — jolly, happy, and self- 
reliant. He is bound to succeed and we wish him

His pleasant and easy going personality always has

Harold is another of our class who seldom spends 
his week end with us, but we fear that he does not 
spend them all at home. Harold thinks Mt. 
Holyoke is a very nice college, although at one time 
we thought he would go to Cambridge to live. 

Harold is generally near the top of the class 
scholastically and it is not unusual for him to get of 
two or three finals each term. 

Just now he is planning to go to South America 
after graduation and his earnestness and experience 
should be a great help to him in whatever he takes up.

Red goes home nearly every week-end and he 
seldom has to ride it alone as there ae always plenty

with him. 

He hasn't been able to figure out yet whether he is 
homozygous or heterozygous for red hair but when 
graduation comes he will doubtless know all about it. 

He is planning to go back home when he graduates 
and he has the best wishes from all of us.

Bob has ideas of his own — and how. The com- 
mercial floriculture worid is about to receive another 
ardent supporter as Bob believes in more and better 
flowers from stock grown by the "Prof. Hubbard" 

He came here last fall for business and business it 
was. West Springfield gave him a tall boost and 
there was also a certain unknown incentive trom 
North Amherst which, by the way, is as much as 
we know. It is for this reason, that we wish him 
the best of luck with his flowers.

Quiet, yet persistent seems to be Roy's outstand-

yet we admired his courage in asking them. But 
there is one thing that puzzles us. We wonder 
what it is that Roy mumbles to the Profs, at the end 
of every class. He is always right there. The Hash 
House will lose a good waiter when Roy leaves, but 
he can sling hash and prune shrubs with equal 
dexterity. We expect that Roy will become an 
estate manager when he leaves here and we wish 
him the best of success and happiness.

Amandy grows some flowers in her gard;

To think of her without those flowers 'round. 
But in the kitchen she does like a sound 
Of stirring, and clatter and a smell 
Of gingerbread, and pies, and things, and — well 
She likes her flowers pretty they and sweet, 
She also likes old furniture, and things to eat. 

"Betty" hails from the home of the cranberry, the 
pilgrim fathers, and the antique. She likes all 
three. Just where she gets her energy, we have been 
unable to discover. She strides about among us, 
removing easily all that would block her path. She 
knows her roses, too, and why plant roots earthward, 
and what good nature means. Some one is going to 
have pleasant gardens when "Betty" gets on the job. 
Whether it will be perenials, or temperamental 
wild flowers is not decided. We wish her well.

"Bill" has a great alibi, "Gee but I just got to get 
home and see the family." It sounds good and all 
that, but knowing him as well as we, the story 
wouldn't be complete without a girl in the case, and 
that said one happens to be in "Whitinsville."

interest in his pomology, but for the rest of the 
subjects he rather be playing the banjo. We know 
"Bill" will make good, and expect to see when

HISTORY is a narration, dealing with the events which characterize the progress 
of man thru the ages. It deals not only with governments, wars and con- 
quests, commerce and politics, but also with groups of men and women, and their 
relationships and activities. We, the Class of '30, have made history. We have 
met with and triumphed over problems inherent in the athletic, social, and intellec- 
tual life of a college. It is with pride and yet with feelings of regret and remorse, 
that we look back upon the indelible years spent here at Stockbridge. Years of 
concentrated effort and study yet blended with inestimable friendships and pleasant 
associations, never to be forgotten. 

A group of timid freshmen, we gathered on the campus, in the fall of '28. 
Homesick were we and looked down upon by the lordly seniors. We were obliged 
to subject ourselves to certain regulations laid down by the seniors, the most evident 
being the one of wearing blue caps. However, we soon became acquainted with the 
members of our own class and with the seniors thru banquets and receptions. 
Many of us were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to pledge ourselves 
either to one of the fraternities or the sorority, which created a new and very inter- 
esting experience for many of us. The first term passed by quickly and the second 
even more quickly and we were thrust out among strangers into a new life, placement 

Many thrills and adventures were in store for us during placement. We made 
new acquaintances and friendships and gained much valuable information. But 
nevertheless we looked forward to our senior year at Stockbridge. 

When October came, we once more gathered on the campus. Our football 
team, Ed Hill, captain, had arrived several days before us, and were well along in 
practice, for a successful year. Over a hundred freshmen joined our forces and 
the fraternities opened their rushing season. Aside from this, things went fairly 
smooth, with Ken Leonard going home week-ends regularly for some unknown 
reason — we think there must be some great attraction in Abington. In November 
we gave a reception to the freshmen at the Mem Building, in the form of a dance. 
They returned it in the winter term. 

During the second term, basketball and hockey held our attention. Toward 
the end of the term the Interfraternity dance was held, which was a great success. 
We soon bade farewell to the freshmen wishing them luck on placement. 

Spring approached and our last term came into view. With spring came base- 
ball and tennis, — and of course the new moon was beautiful. An honor system was 
started, so that those whose scholastic record was high could do special work, during 
the spring term, along lines in which they were especially interested. The term was 
filled with various activities and before we realized it, commencement was upon us. 

Now we, the Class of '30, are gathered together for nearly the last time. Our 
years of study and enjoyment are behind us and the doorway to the future is open 
before. We are well prepared to combat the obstacles which shall ever confront 
us as we go down the pathway of life. But the ideals and inspirations we have 
received here will forever remain within us, and shall we never lose the spirit which 
has been ours here at "Aggie." g jj Worthington.

Dedicated to the Class of 'ji 

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

We are fed on definitions 

And words fit to crack the jaw; 

But our troubles have only just begun 

In dear old Business Law. 

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

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

'' I ^WO happy banquets were the foundation of our work and play at Stockbridge. 
-'- On Friday, October 4, we had the memorable "get acquainted" reception. 
Our class was well represented. 

In December the Seniors gave a dance for the Freshmen and revelers danced 
until the late hour of 11.00 o'clock. 

We started off the month of March by giving the Seniors a dance in the Me- 
morial Building. Both classes had a large "turnout" and, speaking on the whole, 
the dance was a splendid success. 

Now we are looking forward to our placement training and the return to 
Stockbridge as all-knowing Seniors.

'HpHE end of placement training found twenty of us back to carry on the work 
-*- of previous years. 

Immediately we began preparing for the coming year. Smokers were held and 
bids sent out. We were successful in having forty-six bids accepted; fourteen 
seniors and thirty-two freshmen. We were then confronted with the problem of 
initiation. The new class of candidates seemed to be a large number for such a 
small number of initiators to handle. But with everyone working hard, it went over 
with creditable success. 

About midnight of that eventful evening Hampshire County roads were full of 
hikers, going in all but the right direction. However, the following morning found 
all initiates back in time for chapel exercises. Shortly after initiation was over a 
welcoming banquet was given to the initiates at the Lord Jeffery. 

Time passed swiftly and in the late fall a formal House Party was held at the 
Women's Club. Music was furnished by the Silvery Slipper Orchestra of Spring- 
field under the management of "Bus" Aseltine. 

The beginning of the winter term found us in the midst of the second rushing 
season. We were successful in getting one more senior and four freshmen. 

We received notice during this term that the present quarters of Alpha Tau 
Gamma would not be available after this year. Action was immediately taken, 
committees were appointed and plans for next year were drawn up. This coming 
fall the seniors will have the pleasure of living in the new Alpha Tau Gamma House. 

With keen competition from Kolony Klub, in the tournament which consisted 
of Bridge, Basketball and Bowling, Alpha Tau Gamma was the victor for the second 

Following the tournament a very enjoyable smoker was given to us by Kolony 

Next came the Interfraternity dance, held in the Memorial Building, a dance 
which will be long remembered by all of its participants. 

As the time approached when the freshmen must leave for placement training, 
a Farewell Banquet was given them and at that time officers were elected for the 
coming year, they are: Thomas Burke, president; Richard Lewis, vice president; 
Ralph Henry, secretary; Earnest Peterson, treasurer. 

With the coming of spring our fraternity life here on the campus grew shorter. 

Our Fraternity Prom was the last social event of the yar, and it was hailed as 
one of the most successful dances ever held in the history of Alpha Tau Gamma.

THAT wonderful experience which we call fraternity life has been a big factor in 
our life here on the campus. No one of us, who has had this enjoyable and help- 
ful experience, would ever cast it aside, if it were possible to live again these two 
years at "Aggie." As we look back, we realize our college days would not be com- 
plete without this experience. To many, it has meant a turning point in life; it has 
given them new ideals, and inspiration to accomplish greater things. 

Many events marked the history of our two years in Kolony Klub. Initiation, 
not as enjoyable when we went through it but most interesting when we put our 
freshmen through it; banquets, scenes of brotherhood and fraternal spirit which 
will remain with us throughout our lives; house dances, where we spent many 
happy hours; interfraternity competition where we won and lost with good spirit. 
All these afforded fuel for the unquenchable fire, — Kolony Klub spirit.

"npHE new Physical Education Building which is soon to be erected has been made 
-*- possible by the generosity and cooperative efforts of the alumni of the College 
and School, trustees, faculty, and friends. They have contributed for this building 
$115,000 to which is to be added an appropriation by the State of $172,500, making 
a total of $287,500 available for construction and equipment. Thus, what President 
Thatcher described at the beginning of the campaign as "the outstanding need of 
the College at the present time," is about to be met. 

The new building will be located on the site between the Drill Hall and the 
Paige Veterinary Laboratory. This location will place the building convenient to 
the Athletic Field, Memorial Hall and the Drill Hall. This is important since the 
Drill Hall main floor and locker rooms will then be given over to the girls exclusively 
as a gymnasium and the swimming pool in the new building will be convenient for 
their use. 

The building is planned in two distinct sections. The front section is a two 
story brick structure facing 210 feet on Lincoln Avenue with a depth of 50 feet. 
Attached at the rear is a dirt floor recration hall 180 feet long, north and south, by 
150 feet, east and west. The first floor of the front section contains main locker 
room, supply room, basket room for locker system, shower room, toilets, laundry, 
janitor's room, swimming pool 30 feet by 75 feet, and a women's dressing room for 

The main entrance is to the second floor, central section, of the front building. 
This floor contains three team dressing rooms with room for treatment of injuries, 
shower and toilet rooms, all in the south end. In the center is a commodious lobby, 
trophy room, offices for the department staff, and public rest rooms for men and for 
women. The north wing contains an office for the Medical Supervisor of the 
Student Health Service, examination and corrective exercise room, photographic 
room, class room, faculty dressing room with showers, and one hand ball court. 

The dirt floor area at the rear will have a cinder track 12 feet wide around the 
outside boundary with a 12 foot flat balcony directly above the track. Each winter 
a temporary board floor 48 feet by 96 feet will be placed across this area near one end 
for basketball. Spectators can be seated both in the balcony and in bleachers set 
on the dirt floor at the sides of the playing court. This basketball floor and seats 
will occupy less than one half the enclosed area thus leaving ample space for other 
types of recreation and games. After March 1st the whole area will be available 
for early preparation for the spring out-of-door program. 

This plan is the result of a study of a large number of college physical education 
plants throughout the country, and embodies the most up-to-date and useful 
features found in these buildings. 

It should make it possible to overcome the limitations of the New England cli- 
mate and provide. facilities for a year around well balanced program of physical 
education for all students.

•npHE first call for football candidates was about a week before school opened. 
-*- About twenty-two men reported, mostly freshmen. With the opening of school 
the squad was doubled with many prospects for a good team. There were only 
three lettermen that reported for Coach Ball to build his team around. They 
were Captain Hill, Arne Oksanen and Harold Durkin. There were other seniors 
that had some experience in the games the year before but had not played enough 
to win their letter. 

Richmond Barr reported as manager and did a creditable job. 

Palmer High 0, Stockbridge 7 
Our season opened on Oct. 12 with a very poor showing because most of our 
material was green and were not used to playing Coach Ball's type of football. Al- 
though the score seems small. Palmer never threatened score for Stockbridge; held 
them in the center of the field most of the game. We finally got organized and 
marched down the field and scored. Hueg took the ball over from the three-yard 
line. He also rushed over the extra point. 


(3^ The- 1930 - Sliorthorii fd 

October 18 — Conn. Aggie Frosh 13, Stockbridge 

We entertained Conn. Aggie Frosh but with no avail. We outplayed them in 
the first half and were in the shadows of their goal posts most of the time, but failed 
to have that last punch to put over the ball. 

The second half was a different story for they had strengthened after a little 
talk from their coach. The teams played evenly the third period until at the begin- 
ning of the fourth period one of their men caught a long forward pass and raced 
down the field 30 yards to make a touchdown. After that our team blew up and 
started playing loosely until late in that period they ran back a punt fifty yards 
for a touchdown. 

October 25 — Wilbraham 6, Stockbridge 7 

After a few practices our team finally hit its stride and started working together. 

We took a short trip to Wilbraham which proved very successful. This was 
the best team we met during the season and we played our best game as the score 
shows. We held them many times when they were ready to score. This was done 
mostly by Orsanen who played both sides of our line and baffling the Wilbraham 
backfield. When they saw a nice hole in their line, so did Okanen and he filled it 
with his two-hundred pounds. 

They finally scored on us in the fourth period but missed their try for point 
after the touchdown. On the next kick off Ed Hill received the ball and ran 60 
yards down the field only to be tackled 8 yards from the goal line. In two plays 
we put the ball over and made our point after the touchdown. 

November 1 — Amherst Frosh — Stockbridge 7 

Amherst Frosh came down to play us which was more or less a practice game, 
but we didn't consider it so. We played hard and clean football constantly gaining 
through their line. We made one grand march down the field and scored the only 
touchdown of the game. 

Everyone played his hardest because we wanted to be one Aggie team that 
beat Amherst. 

November 9 — Pittsfield High — Stockbridge 21 

We journeyed to Pittsfield and took this game with ease. Our superior weight 
won the game for us without much effort. 

November 16 — Keene Normal School 6, Stockbridge 7 

Another interesting game was with Keene as the score indicates. They scored 
first on a forward pass but missed their try for point after touchdown. A little 
later Stockbridge tightened up and marched down the field for their touchdown and 
made the point after touchdown giving a one point margin. 


qA TtLe- 1930 - Stortliorii jc) 

November 22 — Deerfield Academy 13, Stockbridgb 7 

This was our final game of the season, the one we had been looking forward to 
and it proved to be a very good game. Stockbridge scored first but Deerfield came 
back with a strong forward passing attack and scored their first touchdown. The 
teams battled hard and Stockbridge was always threatening to score. At the begin- 
ning of the fourth period Deerfield scored after a series of line plays which spelled 
our defeat. The boys played their best and gave all they had. 

Even though we lost our objective game, we finished our schedule with a very 
good showing by winning five out of seven games. We scored 49 points to our 
opponents' 25. We are looking forward to '31 to have a more successful season. 

Floyd "Ducky" Wheaton was elected captain and Ernest Petersen manager for 
next season. 

Letters were awarded to Captain Edwin Hill of Gardner; Arne Oksanen of 
Fitchburg, Harold Durkin, Waltham; Kenneth Leonard, Abington; Lincoln White, 
Abington; A. W. Smith, Northampton; Edgar Boardman, Sheffield; William 
Touhig, Springfield; Frank Lee, Norwood; Floyd Wheaton, North Dartmouth; 
Russel Wiman, North Dartmouth; Joseph Hueg, Wellesly; Clyde Keene, Concord; 
Ogro Fish, Concord; and the manager Richmond Barr of Worcester.

' I ^HE large number reporting for basketball made it necessary for Coach Ball to 
-'- form two squads. The first squad consisted of Capt. Coyle, White, Boardman, 
Baker, Wittington, Moulten, Smith, Andrews, Griffin, Lee, Mongillo, Lewis, Bower 
and Hill. 

The schedule was opened Jan. 13 by defeating Arms Academy 27 to 17 on the 
Arms court at Shelburne Falls. Bower, Boardman and White starred for Stock- 
bridge gathering in 21 of the 27 points. The game was well played and showed a 
promise for a good team. 

Palmer High School defeated Stockbridge 35-15 at Palmer on Jan. 21. The 
team could not get either offensively or defensively in the first half and Palmer led 
27 to 6. In the second half the defense tightened and they outscored their oppon- 
ents 9 to 8 with Bower scoring 13 baskets. 

Jan. 28 another victory was added by defeating Amherst High, in a well played 
game on the Drill Hall floor, by the score of 21 to 17. Stockbridge took the lead 
from the start led by White and Boardman who tallied six points apiece, and was 
on the larger end of a 13 to 9 score at the end of the half. Shortly after the start of 
the second half Amherst rallied and took the lead 14 to 13. However, the lead was 
short for Baker tallied three double deckers, placing Stockbridge in the lead and 
on the winning side at the close of the game. 

Turners Falls High defeated Stockbridge 16 to 6 Jan. 30 on the Drill Hall floor. 
Baskets by Baker and White kept Stockbridge in the lead during the first quarter 


(3| The- 1930 - Sliortliorii 

and at the end of the first half Turners Falls led by but 7 to 6. During the second 
half Stockbridge failed to score and Turners Falls substantially increased their lead. 
The game was quite rough and fouls numerous. 

Feb. 4 Easthampton High came from behind in the second half of a hard fought 
game at the Drill Hall, to win 31 to 20. Stockbridge lead at the end of the first half 
17 to 15, due to good shooting by Baker and White. In the scond half the Stock- 
bridge defense cracked and Easthampton scored 16 points while Stockbridge added 
but 3 to their total. 

Feb. 11 the Stockbridge quintet defeated Smith Academy 25 to 17. Stock- 
bridge presented a strong offense and defense so that at the half they were on the 
large end of a 14 to 5 score. In the second half Smith Academy rallied and made a 
game effort to overhaul the Stockbridge lead but Stockbridge raised their early 
advantage to win. Boardman played a very good game and added materially to 
the score by tossing in six baskets. 

Feb. 14 Stockbridge took the Sacred Hearts of Holyoke into camps 31 to 27. 
During the first half although the offense and defense functioned well, the game was 
slow and uninteresting. Stockbridge had everything their own way so far as scor- 
ing goes, amassing 15 points to their opponents' 6. Boardman and Baker played 
well and did much to keep their team in the lead. During the second half the game 
became faster with Sacred Hearts passing continuously. With Boardman out of the 
game on fouls the Blue and White were hard put to keep their lead. 

Stockbridge journeyed to Suffield, Conn., Feb. 19 and met a 25 to 13 defeat at 
the hands of the Suffield School. During the first half Stockbridge played well and 
outplayed their opponents more than their 9 to 8 lead seems to show. However, 
Suffield rallied in the final half, played a fast and skilful game and held Stockbridge 
to four points. Boardman and White played a very good game for Stockbridge. 

Smith School of Northampton were defeated 21 to 15 on Feb. 25 at the Drill 
Hall. Stockbridge took the lead from the start and were never headed. The 
game was snappy and hard fought. Stockbridge was on the top of a 12 to 7 score 
at half-time. During the second half Baker and White kept the team in the lead. 
Baker- and White starred with eleven and six points respectively. Boardman and 
Coyle also showed up well on the floor and added two points each to the final score. 

Feb. 28 the Stockbridge quintet completed their schedule by taking the Middle- 
bury Pre Med. into camp 17 to 10. The game was slow, quite rough and not very 
interesting to watch. Both teams presented a fair defense and missed baskets time 
and again. However, Stockbridge was easily the better team and showed up well 
as compared to their opponents. Boardman, Baker, and White who have played 
so well all season starred for Stockbridge. Baker shot 4 baskets, Boardman sunk 2 
doubledeckers and 2 fouls, and White tallied once. The floor work of the three was 
expecially worthy of note. 

The season was fairly successful winning 6 and losing 4. Due to the large 
turnout of Freshmen and 3 lettermen Coach Ball has prospects of a fine tem next 
year. The team will be led by Ed Boardman captain and manager. 

The letter men are Capt. Joseph Henry Coyle, Somerville; C. F. Smith, 
Holyoke; John J. White, Fall River; Edgar Boardman, Sheffield ; Lawrence Baker, 
East Bridgewater; Charles P. Whittington, New York City; Arthur J. Cutrumbes, 
Dracut, Mass.

'T^HE hockey candidates reported to Coach McGeoch soon after their return from 
-'- Christmas vacation. A large squad reported, but the team was handicapped, 
due to its lack of experience. Ralph Brown was chosen Captain and Richard Lee 
appointed Manager. 

Deerfield 2, Stockbridge 
We opened our season with Deerfield Academy on our home rink. In spite of 
lack of practice our men put up a fairly good exhibition, holding our strong oppon- 
ents down to two goals. 

HoLYOKE 2, Stockbridge 4 
In second game we defeated a weaker team. The coach used numerous substi- 
tutes and the team showed up well as a whole. Our opponents fought hard to come 
back in the last period but our team was not to be denied a victory. 

Gushing 3, Stockbridge 
This was to be our first trip to Ashburnham, but due to poor ice, the game was 
played on our home rink. During this game our forward line worked to perfection, 
but due to a few unlucky breaks and their good goal tender we failed to score. 


qA The- 1930 - Sliortliorii 

Greenfield 5, Stockbridgb 1 
Our first trip was a game with Greenfield at Springfield. The team played its 
customary type of clean hockey, but we couldn't progress against the type of play 
used by our opponents. The game was exceptionally fast and our men showed up 
wonderfully well. 


A trip to Easthampton and another fast game with Wilhston. The team voted 
this game as our best exhibition. The result was uncertain until the last five min- 
utes when our defence collapsed and Wilhston scored three goals. The opposing 
goalie had the misfortune to be hit in the eye by one of Captain Brown's sizzUng 
shots just as the whistle blew ending the game. 

Greenfield 6, Stockbridge 1 
A return game with Greenfield and our first evening game. Our team took the 
lead immediately when Durkin scored with a low skimmer, which the goalie hasn't 
seen yet. In the second and third period our opponents scored at will with shots 
that came by way of the air route. 

M. A. C. Freshmen 0, Stockbridge 3 
In a practice game on the "Aggie" pond rink our team defeated the Freshmen. 
After a scoreless first period, we made a few changes in the defense, and our forward 
line began to score We scored three goals while holding the Freshmen scoreless. 
The game was most satisfactory as it was the only defeat for the Freshmen during 
the season. 

Wilbraham 8, Stockbridge 1 
In this game we were completely outclassed. The whole team worked hard 
but we couldn't keep up to the pace set by our visitors. Al Shats scored on a sola 
dash through the entire team and one of the neatest goals of the season. 

WiLLisTON 5, Stockbridge 

A final game played in a blinding snowstorm, resulted in our final defeat. We 
were handicapped by poor ice, a slightly disorganized team. 

Prospects are good for a strong team next year as only four men are lost through 
graduation. Ralph Henry was elected and Purdy was chosen manager. 

Insignia were awarded to Captain Ralph L. Brown of Portsmouth, N. H., 
Judson W. Hastings of Agawam, Harold Durkin of Waltham, Sanborn A. Caldwell 
of Lynnfield, Alfred F. Warren of Medford, Richard G. Lewis of Framingham, 
Henry S. Murray of Concord, Ralph Henry of Maiden, and Richard H. Lee of 
Northampton, manager.

In the interclass track meet Stockbridge '30 won second place with a score of 
48J points. The freshmen won fifth place with a score of 7 points.

THE Stookbridge Glee Club is still a young organization, since it has only been in existence two 
years. It is nevertheless an active one, and is becoming more so from year to year. The truth 
of this statement is brought out by the fact that the Stockbridge co-eds have seen fit to ask for 
membership into the "Club," and have been gladly admitted as a welcome addition, since their 
soft voices greatly influence the harmony of the voices. 

To those who have any musical talent, and wish to cultivate it, the Glee Club will be found a 
great aid, since it is under excellent supervision and is very well financed. Then too, it is one of 
the few cultural groups among the Stockbridge organization and we sincerely hope that many will 
avail themselves of its opportunities and benefits in the years to come. 

The members of the Glee Club all wish to extend their sincere thanks and appreciation to Mr. 
Marc Parlow for his excellent and talented supervision, and hope that he will continue to be with 
them in the coming years. They are also very grateful to Director Verbeck for giving them an 
opportunity to display their ability in several concerts given as a part of the chapel program. The 
Club is also indebted to Mr. Harry Purdy for his efforts and successful mustering together a very 
interested Glee Club. We hope Mr. Purdy will continue the good work in 1931.

est of these is the college 4-H Club known as the "K. O." Club. 
Each year prominent club members from all corners of the 
state are coming to M. A. C, having learned throughout their 
years in club work what the state college offers them. Many 
of these students are enrolled in our Stockbridge School and 
are preparing themselves to carry on in some specialized 
field of agriculture, the interest in which started when they 
were youngsters in club work back on their own farms. 

The K. 0. Club has been in existence for several years as a

boys were asked to join and we now have more former club 
boys in the college 4-H Club than girls. About one-third of

Having been so outstanding during our stay here we have all 
reason to believe that we will continue to be so as we journey 
thru life. If we but bear in mind a small portion of the 
knowledge that has been put before us, as well as benefit by 
our contacts with our fellow classmates we surely will con- 
tinue to progress. We all have had many experiences both 
beneficial and disastrous, but if we have learned thru our 
experiences we have gained much. As we leave the campus, 
many of us for the last time, we realize that it has meant 
much to us, and if we have obtained nothing more than a 
knowledge of human nature our time has not been wasted.

Carlon and Chadwick Indicted by 
Grand Jury 

Boston, Feb. 16, 1943. John J. Carlon and 
Richard Chadwick sons of prominent busi- 
ness men m Northampton and Boxford, were 
today indicted by the Grand Jury for conduct- 
ing a correspondence designed to bring to- 
gether young couples desiring to marry. Ac- 
cording to evidence, they have mailing lists of 
all important cities, writing passionate letters 
to all young women explaining their methods 
and endeavoring to have them call at one of 
the apartments, where they always had an 
ample supply of young men. It seems that 
many innocent girls were led astray by this 
means since their business flourished so widely 
and popularly.

Holds Most Dangerous Job in World 

New York Jan. 3, 1960. It is believed that 
Edwin Milligan of Groveland, Mass., holds 
the most dangerous job. He is keeper of the 
Lion House at the 300 and after 10 years of the 
tasks, admits that it may be rather risky to 
life and limb. Mr Milligan cannot be accused 
of holding this job for the thrill in it for he is 
now turning the ripe old age of 75, when thrills 
are over and a good three "squares" are more 
satisfactory. He says he hopes to hold the 
job for the rest of his life, barring accidents.

ning program at Station X Y Z has been

E. Burkhardt, who narrates wonderful bed- 
time stories each evening at 7:00 for the bene- 
fit of the youngsters among his listeners. His 
stories are full of such wonderful places and 
people, and told in such a charming way and 
lovely manner that the kiddies are easily 
lured off to bed. After hearing his soft voice 
Mr. Burkhardt's popularity with the children 
is undeniable as he has received hundreds of 
letters since he began and has to apologize 
each evening for not having had time to an- 
swer all he would like to. It is probable that 
he gained his winning ways from his own 
family of which there are six, 4 boys and 2 
girls, who by the way are twins.. 

Messrs. Shats and Taylor Retire from 
Head of the Cooperation Oil Company 

Houston, Texas, Dec. 4, 1963. Messrs E.

return to his wife and six children at once,

dent. Norman Quick of West Springfield

Astoria, N. Y., retained her office of corres- 
ponding secretary, but Everett Dimock of

ing company. The change is one which is 
desirable to all inhabitants of the town, as the 
Barr and Morrill contracting company was 
unable to cope with the situation last winter, 
due to the fact that it did not have enough 
trucks and tractors. The Ziomek and Holt 
Co., was brought to the attention of the town

Barr and Morrill Company in removing the 
snow after the blizzard which was said to be 
the worst since the storm of '30.

^0 potential Enockers; 

The pages of this book you've now perused, 
You've frowned at things we thought were funny, 
You've cried and do not seem amused, 
You don't think you've the worth of your money. 

But we've done our best, which is all we could do, 
We've strived many nights to succeed. 
And now we are asking a favor of you. 
That you sit, ponder, criticize, yet read. 

Our book is not perfect, we could not have such. 
There's perhaps a mistake in each letter. 
But the opinions of knockers are never worth much, 
So we ask could you have done better?
