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
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-

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
"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.

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.

"Al" and his Whippet have been very popular
among his classmates. "Al" has been a quiet fellow
but whenever there is an argument, he is one of the
participants. He has led K. K. in a successful sea-

"Al" contributed several points. He played an
exceptionally good game in hockey.
"Al" is a wizard in his major. "He knows his

let's hope he continues to find success in vegetables.

"Crissy" is another of our ambitious Animal
Husbandry men. He has proved his working ability
as manager of the Shorthorn. "Crissy" has worked
earnestly to give the basketball team a successful
season. In all of Christopher's undertakings he has
given his best work at all times. He seems to like to
spend his week-end in his native town, altho it is
often hard to locate him there over the week-end.
He is a capable driver, and is particularly noted for
his ability to drive without lights over unknown icy
roads. "Crissy's" smile is always present and it
certainly is good to have it around. He plans to
take up the business of raising pure bred Guernseys
and we are sure that he will be successful. We all
wish him the best of success in all of his undertak-
ings, and we will expect great accomplishments from
him in a few years.

she will teach her leghorns to sing is a question
worth considering. She certainly has enough

"Stoney" is a fellow of small stature, and may be
usually seen around the Floriculture department.
He is quite a studious fellow, little heard about, but
is known by many. "Stoney" tried for the football
team, but due to his stature he gave it up, but not
before he had shown plenty of grit. His general
fellowship has admitted him to the A. T. G. and we
are sure that he has made strong friends.

Joe's one aim in life is to be a successful poultry
man and successful he will be, if he applies himself
to his work as he has to his studies. As far as we

"Bill" IS one of these fellows that can pick up
most any kind of an instrument and before you can
wink, he has started off in a tune. We all have
appreciated his willingness to help us in our musical
programs, and if it hadn't been for him the "Glee
Club" would have been sunk. Every few weeks
"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."
"Bill" is a whale of a nice fellow and takes great
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
passing through his home town, a vast area of fruit
orchards bearing a sign on the side of the road
"Taft and Sons, Fruit Growers." Good luck to you

Mere words cannot do j ustice to the record which
Fernald has made during his years at Amherst.
Even the fact that he hails from Flatwood, Pa.
cannot be held against him, as he has established
himself in the hearts of all lovers of a fighting spirit
and true sportsmanship.
Besides his huge towering frame, we will always
remember him for his unassuming nature and genial-
ity, qualities which made him a friend worth claim-
A jovial and loyal companion with a pleasant

The little village of Cornish, N. H., feeling the
need of some information about ths outside world
and the best method of raising "corn and taters"
picked Tracy for its representative.
So in the fall of 1928 this youth from the wide
open spaces became Dick to his buddies and has
remained so ever since.
His support of outside activities as well as getting
good marks has been noticeable. We feel sure that
when Dick returns to Cornish, they will learn that
he has not been away in vain.

Amherst in the fall of 1928. However, they were
consoled by the thought that some day he would
return as a great animal husbandryman, to put up
model barns and raise better cows.
Besides living up to their anticipation Ed has
made a host of friends, through his happy disposi-

Ed's two years here represent the aggregate of
days of good fellowship and pleasant memories.

DURING our two years' stay here at M. A. C. our original number of Classmates
has slowly diminished. Many of these Ex-members did not leave on account
of failure in their studies, but other reasons such as illness, lack of funds, and secur-
ing of positions made their withdrawal necessary.
This page is dedicated to those members of 1930 that were at one time a part
of our class, and whom we all missed upon their departure.

qX Tke- 1930 " Sliortliorii fS
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
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.

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
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.

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.

' 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
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,

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.

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
WiLLISTON 4, StOCKBEIDGE 1
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.

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
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.

^tocfebribge (§lee Club
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.

1\ /TANY of our Stockbridge students are taking active part
-'- ~ -^ in some of the college organizations. One of the new-
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
club for girls formerly 4-H Club members, but this year the
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
the members of the club are Stockbridge Students. Doris

Stockbridge members are: — Margarite Bancroft, Charlotte

T 1 /"E the class of 1930 take great pride in being termed as
' ' the most oustanding class ever to be graduated from the
Stockbridge School of Agriculture. From our entry in 1928
we have accomplished things unheard of prior to our day.
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.

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.

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..

New Officers Elected for C. P. A.
Worcester, Mass., May 7, 1954- The annual
convention of the Country Peoples' Associa-
tion being held here, elected the following
officers last night. These men will hold office
through the coming year. Henry Zimmerman
of Auburn, Mass., president, Sarah Mintz of
Gloucester was unanimously elected vice presi-
dent. Norman Quick of West Springfield
barely won out over Ed Godin of Hatfield, for
treasurer, and Betty Sherman of Marshfield
easily became secretary. Agnes Tamm of
Astoria, N. Y., retained her office of corres-
ponding secretary, but Everett Dimock of
Oxford takes over the duties of visiting agent.
These illustrious men ought to strengthen
considerably the presidential hopes founded
by Clinton Roberts, the great "milking king"
New Contract Given for Snow
The removal of snow m the town of Amherst
will be done by the Ziomek and Holt contract-
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
two years ago, when it was called in to aid the
Barr and Morrill Company in removing the
snow after the blizzard which was said to be
the worst since the storm of '30.

and Joseph Schwartz, operator and owner of
the ring were arrested and held in $200 bail.

^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?
