How futile it seems to attempt to place on the printed 
page the pleasures we have enjoyed, the wisdom we 
have gained, and the friendships we have made while 
students at Stockbridge. No books, no matter how fine, 
can hope to encompass events as powerful as these. The 
soul and mind of the individual living them, is alone 
sensitive enough to record their true meanmg. 

We have in the following pages endeavored to gather 
together only those outward happenings and experiences 
that are known to us all. If you can pick up this book 
in the days to come when the present has receded into the 
past, when memories have become dim and life has some- 
how lost its edge, turn its pages and relive those pleasures, 
revive that urge for knowledge and renew those long lost 
friendships, we shall know our work has been well done 
and our mission fulfilled. 

The Editors. 


The Shorthorn Board of the Stockbridge Class of '32 
wishes to express its sincere appreciation to those many 
friends who have materially assisted in the work of organ- 
izing and publishing the year book. 

We especially wish to thank Professor Rollin H. 
Barrett, faculty adviser, for his patience, optimism and ever 
willingness to work with us; Mr. C. A. Nichols of Chas. 
W. Burbank Co., printers, for his splendid cooperation; 
Miss Dorothy C. Cooper of Howard-Wesson Co., Engravers, 
for her criticism and advice; Mr. H. E. Kinsman of 
Kinsman's Studio, Photographers, for his interest and ready 
assistance; Director R. H. Verbeck, Miss Katharine Martin, 
and Miss Catherine Heflernan of the Short Course Office, 
for the fine spirit with which they have helped us. 

We have enjoyed our work on this Shorthorn and 
realize that whatever success this book attains has been 
made possible only through the fine spirit of cooperation 
that has existed. 

The Shorthorn Board.

"TJEW MEN who have attended Massachusetts State College can boast of as fine a record 
-*- of achievement, both as an undergraduate and as an officer of the institution as can 
Emory E. Grayson. 

"Em" Grayson, while an undergraduate was not only outstanding as an athlete but 
as a student as well. He won varsity letters in football, baseball, and basketball. If 
anyone should attempt to compile a list of the ten outstanding athletes at Massachusetts 
for all time, his name would surely be on the list. 

The war came just as he graduated and the next two years found him in the service. 
In 1919 he returned to the campus as the first athletic instructor for the Stockbridge 
School, which was just getting started. During the four years from 1919 to 1924 he 
organized and coached the Stockbridge football and basketball teams and the varsity 
baseball team. His ability as a coach won outside recognition and in 1924 he was 
appointed to the coaching staff at Amherst College and coached its varsity baseball teams 
until the fall of 1927. At that time there was a vacancy in the position of Supervisor 
of Placement Training in the Stockbridge School and he returned once more to serve 
his own college. 

Emory is a true sportsman and a gentleman in every way. He is blessed with an 
abundance of common sense and inspires confidence in those with whom he is associated. 
These qualities explain in part the wonderful record he has made in his present position. 
Few men have more real friends among the alumni. 

Ask any Stockbridge alumnus what he thinks of "Em." He has made a real con- 
tribution to the lives of most of them.

Born; July 3, 1902. School: Milton Academy, Harvard College. 
Died: August 9, 1922. 

-'i^ruv'^-m UTDxi 

The Vincent Goldthwait Loan Fund was established in 1930 by Dr. Joel E. 
Goldthwait of Boston. For many years or since 1924, Dr. Goldthwait, with the coopera- 
tion of the Short Course Office, had been extending loans to students of the Stockbridge 
School of Agriculture. These personal loans, however, began to involve more detail 
•than Dr. Goldthwait could properly handle, therefore about two years ago. Dr. Goldthwait 
thought it advisable to turn over to the treasurer of the college, the entire fund along 
with the existing notes. The Vincent Goldthwait Loan Fund became at that time the 
property of the Massachusetts State College. The fund was to be handled entirely by 
the treasurer's office and was to be made available to all students of the college. 

There are several reasons for Dr. Goldthwait's interest in the Stockbridge School. 
The first of these may easily be the fact that he was graduated from M. A. C, Class of 
'85. It was also while here at Amherst that he became inspired with the desire for 
further training in order that he might enter his present profession. Perhaps the greatest 
reason of all for his keen interest in Stockbridge students came as a result of the sad 
experience of losing his son Vincent who had definitely planned to study agriculture 
at this college upon completing his work at Harvard University. 

At first it seems strange that Vincent Goldthwait, with the opportunity to enter 
practically any field, selected agriculture as his life work. However, it does not seem 
so strange when one realizes the broad and intelligent environment in which he was 
brought up, and the strong, healthy character of the young man himself. Encouraged 
by his parents, his early desire for the pleasures to be had in the out-of-doors was no 
doubt the chief factor leading up to his decision. Realizing the importance of a broad 
education as a foundation for leadership, Vincent entered Harvard College in 1920. 
With characteristic energy and enthusiasm he entered into the college life. As well as 
maintaining a high scholastic standing, he became a member of the college pistol team, 
the college band, the manager of his class tennis team and a general participator in all 
things of an athletic nature. During his two years or more at college he was an 
infrequent participator in things of a social nature, his interests being more in other 
fellows and in activities out-of-doors. In fact, it was while on a boating trip with some 
classmates that he accidentally lost his life, due to an explosion of gasoline resulting in 
the burning of the boat. 

Much as he liked college it was during the vacation periods that Vincent really 
lived, for it was then that he could work in the soil and dream and plan for the future. 
The hard and often disagreeable work on the farm did not phase young Goldthwait. 
He tackled those jobs with such enthusiasm and energy that all the men with whom 
he worked liked and respected him. An interested and helpful assistant was found in 
his father. Together they visited the "West to study sheep raising, and together bought 
a large farm in a nearby town. This they began to operate as the first unit of a 
contemplated chain of New England farms. It was in connection with the work on 
this farm that Vincent and his father became to understand the problems of the farmer. 


-^bUTDT^^^^ UTOXI 

At that time, nearly ten years ago, they discussed many of the ideas that are being 
advocated at the present time. The chief one of these was the developing of the farm 
as a whole. Under this they recognized the woodland as an integral part of their 
farm and proceeded to improve it in order that it might produce a continuous and 
profitable yield of wood products. They realized the importance of careful selection of 
farm crops. They felt the need of the most modern machinery if the farm was to be 
made efficient. They also appreciated the values that could be received from the hfe 
on the farm that could not be obtained in quite as fine a degree anywhere else. 

Vincent had planned to come to Amherst as a special student upon the completion 
of his four years at Harvard. He was a believer in the short course program and 
intended to attend them periodically in order that he might keep up with the most 
modern methods of agriculture. In everything he did he gave evidence of unusual 
foresight and clear reasoning. Massachusetts State College as well as New England 
Agiiculture is undoubtedly the loser by his untimely death.

"Tommy" is known by everyone about campus. He 
has been a worker all through his two years here at 
Stockbridge. He likes to see things neat and tidy 
so he tries to put them that way. He studies a lot 
and certainly "puts it accross" in the classroom. 
Sometimes we wonder just what goes across but the 
"profs." seem satisfied and that's what counts.

Lois is the tiniest and youngest of the girls. De- 
spite this she capably handles her work as Secretary 
of the class and Vice-President of the Girls' Sorority. 
"Lo" likes the boys and usually is to be seen at the 
numerous social functions. 

"Lo" was not afraid to soil her hands. She en- 
tered right into any laboratory work that came along 
with a spirit that we all admired. Perhaps her 
placement training had something to do with it.. We 
hear she called on the judge while down on the 
Cape. What about it, Lois? 

"Lo" loves flowers and ought to increase the busi- 
ness of the florist's shop were she is to work.

Here is the boy who looks at the world from a 
pair of sparkling brown eyes, set in an attractive face. 
If you don't believe he is attractive just ask some of 
the co-eds, or any other girls for that mattet. 

For the past two years "Bob" has been a great 
asset to the class with his winning ways and un- 
ceasing good nature. From "man lost in the woods," 
to "hoot-hoot," "Bob" carried on his fun. It isn't 
often that people have the pleasure of knowing one 
as generous and sporting as he is.

"Doug" is just another one of these innocent faced 
boys from way up north in Athol. Don't be deceived 
by his appearance and quiet manner for it is merely a 
handy disguise for those evil designs he tries to con- 
ceal from us. Don't worry we won't tell but we are 
wise to you ! 

If we believe in the old adage, "still water runs 
deep," this boy's thoughts must be deep enough to 
drown the "Profs" as well as ourselves. 

Of all the pomologists, this one will certainly be 
able to make two apples grow where but one grew 

May you climb to the summit in the world of 
fruit as easily as you climbed to the summit of 
"Prexy's" hill during cross country.

Who's that sporty looking youth who is always as 
neat as the proverbial pin? Why, that's none other 
than "Larry." Friendly to all, but intimate to a few. 
The fellows that were pals of "Larry's" certainly owe 
him a great deal, because for them he made the two 
years at Stockbridge a regular good time. Always 
ready to cheer up the downhearted, he made a great 
many friends and whenever things grew dull and 
commonplace "Larry" stepped in, and with a few of 
his jokes and smiles things brightened up immediately. 
It is rumored that "Larry" was a fisherman of note, 
if so we believe that a great number of the fish in the 
Conn. River owe their lives to many little college 
girls. (Any college).

"Blondie" came down from the Vermont hills to 
take up Animal Husbandry and to show the boys how 
it's done in 'Vermont. We hear that all of "Blondie's" 
cows are off balance due to continual grazing in side 
hill pastures. Maybe this environment of hill and 
dale was the reason for his interest and success in 
the cross-country here at Stockbridge. 

"Blondie" is one of those few and far between 
fellows who has the consistant habit of getting out 
of "exams." It is hard to convince him with any- 
thing but cold facts, and the "Profs" have a hard time 
convincing him that the facts are cold. 

Strange as it seems, Harold has stopped going home 
week-ends. We are told that a Californian maiden, 
roaming about the campus, is the cause of this sudden 
interest in Amherst.

"Booky" came down from way up in Maine, all 
full of ambition and with a strong desire to learn 
something about chickens. One thing we feel pretty 
certain of and that is that he confined his efforts to 
only the feathered kinds. 

We shall always remember our pal "Booky" as he 
strolled across campus with his high leather boots and 
knickers; a perfect portrayal of "the hiker." 

We know, that with the determination you have 
shown, your success as a poultryman is certain. 

Cheerio, "Booky" and may the day come when 
someone of the other sex does your shopping and 
serves your meals.

this boy from the wilds of Cherry Valley; the town

enough about "Connie" with his ever-ready wit and 
good humor. Beneath the humor, however, you will 
find a serious nature hidden. Proof — his seleaion as 
fraternity president, class vice-president and com- 
mencement committee chairman. He has worked hard 
for his fraternity, his class and the school as a whole; 
for this we commend him.

"Jim" is always ready to tackle anything, a trait 
which came in very handy when we had some old 
and balky "Ag. Engine" motor to start. 

He possesses a big heart and a bigger appeute. 
The Dairy Dept., will testify to his remarkable feats. 
"Jim" often mastered (?) the sports he tried whether 
cross country, bowling or even swimming. 

By his fellow classmates he is considered an 
authority on Hadley, Providence and Chemistry 
valences. From all accounts he must have been in 
charge of the Fro-Joy plant in Providence last summer. 

He came to us as a gangling youth, he leaves us 
as a self-confident man.

Burnham has been a big name in greenhouse con-

that "Len" will uphold the reputation when he begins 
his career in greenhouse management. He will if 
he continues to act as he did when chairman of the 
A. T. G. house committee. Here Len, with his strong 
paddle arm and good nature always helped to make 
"everything rosy" for the freshman initiates. 

Due to his illness in the first part of the winter 
term we missed "Len's" cheerful countenance in 
classes and able leadership in chapel singing.

"Truck" is proof of the adage "you cannot judge 
a book by its cover" for beneath a somewhat indiffer- 
ent and hardboiled exterior there resides the heart 
of a true friend. When speaking of hearts we 
wonder if he did not lose some of his while out in 
Ithaca. He is liked by all who know him. Who 
doesn't enjoy that infrequent smile of his? We 
should advise anyone to have "Truck" on their side 
for he is sure one hard man to oppose. Ask any 
man on the opposing football teams. He has a great 
love for animals which fact will no doubt help him 
to show one of the finest herds in whatever section 
he chooses to settle in.

We will always remember that smile of yours 
"Bump" the same smile that has come up from the 
bottom of the pile on the football field whether 
you're winning or losing. That smile and your good 
nature have made many friends for you that will last 
a long time. "Bump" sure has an eye for the girls 
and we're wondering just how it will all end up. 
Sooner or later we're going to see him settled down 
on a nice little farm in Maine (?) with a nice little 
home and a fine herd of cows. His personality and 
willingness to work are bound to put him way up 
in the world of farmers.

and with his size should make a fine farmer. 

■When the dust comes swirling upon us from across 
the valley, "John" feels right at home for he has 
lived with it all his life. "When we look at the 
size of "John" we do not wonder that the onion and

The supreme example of "local boy makes good." 
"Gil" commutes from Cottage Street. He says, 
"Classes interfere with my sleep." Drop the classes 
"Gil", you need the beauty sleep. 

In spite of this "Gil" is a conscientous youth and 
is undoubtedly the highest ranking fudge maker in 
the entire Hort. Manf. Class. 

Picture him twenty years from now. You will find 
him almost any evening sitting in an easy chair drawn 
up to the fire; his shoes off, feet resting on a foot- 
stool, clay pipe by his side and contentedly sipping 
"sweet" cider. The perfect example of the wealthy 
landowner operating his broad acres from the easy 
comfort of a plush seat.

"Bud' 'is one of the best known boys on the

"Bud" has a weakness for sweat shirts. Remember 
that one that could be seen from afar? We liked 
it, for then all we had to do when we wanted to 
locate "Bud" was to look for a reflection in the sky. 

In the class play "Bud" has to be dumb or may 
we say he has to act dumb and foolish. Of course 
Prof. Smart picked the parts to fit the various indivi- 
duals so think as you will. However, the "Flori"

"Charlie" has surely done a fine job as president 
of our class these past two years. But then, this is 
only characteristic of him. 

Germany was afforded the pleasure of meeting our 
"Charlie" last summer and from all reports they hated 
to have him leave when his placement came to an end. 
He found time to mingle with German Society 
although his work was, for the most part, with the 
peasant class. On the strength of some of his stories 
several of the "An Husers" have decided to leave 
for Germany at once. 

Cresco, Pa., has also quite a hold on "Charlie." 
"It's the Pocono Mts.", says he. "It's the girls," 
says "Bump."

in a world of his own until suddenly he speaks. At 
once you wonder, for though his words are big his 
thoughts are bigger and we find he is ahead of us 
all. Beneath his slow moving exterior his mind must 
be alert and active for didn't he trip up Prof. Smart 
in the Business Law Class ! 

A friend of but few, he is liked by many.

"Desch" is our most popular dairy man and we 
are all proud of him. He secured a fine start in his 
Senior year by laboring at Flint Lab. during place-

bright spots at Flint during the summer. His pop-

"We have often heard that Lowell is a mighty fine 
city. We do not question it when fellows like 
"Desch" hail from there. 'We are sure of one thing 
and that is that Lowell is a mighty fine location for 
a milk business. 

"Desch" thought one day that one of our popular 
"profs"" drew too fine a line. To the amusement of 
the rest of us the ""prof"' remarked that, "we have 
to draw a line somewhere, '"Desch."" '"

"Nilsy" returned to Stockbridge 'U' in January 
after spending a strenuous year at Worcester. He 
immediately entered into the spirit of our class, com-

Practical, a hard worker, good scholar, and a regular 
fellow, "Nilsy" is liked by all. The height of 
"Nilsy's" ambition is to become a superintendent of 
a large dairy farm. 

Adios "Nilsy" and good luck to you.

"Tommy" is not as sm.all as he looks, in fact that is 
only the lesser half of it. He is a well liked fellow 
and has plenty of friends among us. "Tommy" is a 
good worker and no doubt will soon be planting ■ 
trees along the main road of some small town or big 
city. We often wondered "Tommy," if breakfast was 
served at twelve-thirty would you still get up just 
fifteen and one half minutes before? Even though 
you are just another "Hort" man you have possi-

to plant the trees.

the butt of many a joke but when he had had his

up pretty early in the morning to get ahead of him.

"Brad," a graduate of Essex County Agricultural 
School, and winner of two scholarships at Brockton 
Fair, well deserves to be called a typical 4-H Club 

During his year here we have noted that his 
interest is not confined to Pomology alone. He was 
one of the two seniors on the basketball squad and 
later demonstrated his ability in baseball. 

Many of us will long remember his clever imper- 
sonation of "Mandy" in that little skit — "Train Time 
in Billericky."

Henry was the only Flori. man who seemed to be 
able to hit Prof. Hubbard's courses fer anything more 
than a good sweat. Although spending a great deal 
of his time studying, he saved most of his time week- 
ends for a little Miss in the home town. 

"Dutchy" as he is known best, has two great 
ambitions, namely: becoming a would-be florist, and 
the other to be able to perch on the limb of an apple 
tree and whistle like a bird (Crow) in the spring- 
Never mind "Dutchy," if you can make monkeys 
out of your customers like you made out of us on 
the Flori. Exams, you won't have to worry where your 
next banana is coming from.

"Chet" should have felt right at home for Ambers; 
is his hometown. 

"Chet" is rarely seen with the fair sex but we do 
not choose to boast too widely for it is said that 
while in New York he was out until 2 o'clock in the 
morning enjoying night life in the big city. In spite 
of his innumerable excuses we still are wondering 
what went on. 

With an earlier background of experience, topped 
by his training here we know that he will be success- 
ful in the poultry game. His recent acquisition of 
John Storrs strain of Rhode Island Reds is an 
additional indication of his future success.

He was Howard to us at first because of his shy, 
bashful first time away from home attitude. Two 
years at the "University" has changed all this, however, 
and now we are glad to know him as "Whitey," 
a real Stockbridge man. 

"Whitey" is fond of the flaming red heads. 
Perhaps this desire for color was one reason for his 
choice of fruit growing as a profession. We think 
that it is easier and safer to deal with nice red apples, 

Reports indicate that he is a hard working, ambi- 
tious young man who rarely sleeps. Maybe he 
intends to be Edison in the fruit line. Good luck, 
there is always a place for a man who is wide awake.

Here we have one of those quiet, unassuming 
fellows who somewhat deceive you. We always 
thought that he was bashful and shy but alas, one 
night, our thoughts were rudely shattered. A street 
light proved to be too near his parked car. 

We do not see much of "Charlie" on weekends! 
Business (?) trips to Springfield and occasional flying 
trips to his home in Forestdale seems to use up the 
most of them. 

All "kidding" aside we all like "Charlie." He is 
a hard worker, being very much in demand at Flint 
Lab. when there is extra work to be done. If the 
material counts for anything we can picture nothing 
but a successful future for "Charlie."

"Bunny" has artistic talent, and especially does 
she like to spend her spare time drawing dogs. She 
has found that she much prefers dogs to cows. Her 
hair is cut shon. which is really too bad, as she is 
our only blonde; however, her long dark lashes 
panially make up for it. Her boyishness and mis- 
chievous playfulness are famed, and yet she has seen 
more of life than most of us. We were all glad to 
have "Bunny" back after absence of fall term, for 
who could help liking her? 

Go to it. "Bunny," the "An Husers" will back you

its influence. He puts his heart and soul into ever)'-

"O. K." tried football the first year and showed 
good promise but was forced to give up either 
"hashing" or football and so gave up the latter. A

He's got a good head on his shoulders and time will 
only tell how big a success he will be.

Fellows: — 

Life has been good to us, some shadow, but a good deal of sunlight. We are 
aged and eighty, sitting in front of an open fireplace letting the heat warm our 
rheumatic old joints — drifting, dreaming through the days spent at Stockbridge. Faces 
and figures appearing in the flames join us in a belated "bull session" to recall long 
forgotten fun. 

Say, remember when we first landed there in '30? We were sort of lost then, 
but the faculty threw a couple of banquets at the "Hash House," and the Profs, made 
speeches. The meals were good, too. Then the "Y M" gave a party at the "Mem" 
building. That was fun. The seniors were there, and some kind of punch, too — 
but it was too sweet. The only trouble with that party was the "fewness" of girls. 
The ones who were there sure danced, though they didn't get any peace. 

'Member the hike to Mt. Toby? Shucks, I wore out a new pair of boots that day. 

What a football team we had that year — won all but two games, and tied one 
of those. We got Deerfield the next year though — and how! 

Say, remember how we got tired of waiting for the seniors to give us a dance? 
We beat them to it and gave them one — in the "Mem" Building. Then they got 
around to having one for us. 

What did you do on Placement Training? "Geez! I was way off in the sticks, 
nothing doing a-tall." "I had a good time — the boss's daughter was dang pretty." 
"All I did was pull weeds." 

The old campus looked good after six months — back to books, and — sure, don't 
forget the "Abby." 

Didn't the team get banged up the last year? But on the whole we had a 
successful season — for didn't we take our ancient enemy into camp? 19-0 — Wheeee! 
Remember the freshman who characterized the "Stockbridge Squire" song? Hip boots, 
overgrown pipe, and wide-brimmed flat-crowned hat — that was good. 

And how about the hat rush? That was good clean fun, with plenty of rough- 
house. My favorite position was horizontal — and having six crazy freshmen doing a 
war dance up and down my spine. Yea — they won. 

But we didn't let the freshmen get ahead of us on the dance though — we gave them 
one in the Drill Hall, then they returned it in the "Mem" Building. 

After that came Easter 'Vacation, and when we returned there were no freshmen 
— sorta missed seeing them around. 

The last term! Frat dances — the picnic — the last banquet — the play — graduation 
day — Prom. — Pals — . . . 

" '11 take down . . . ol' . . . . silv' . . . goblet

The class of '33 entered the Stockbridge School with the same hopes and expecta- 
tions as previous classes of the institution. As the school lived up to these previous 
, classes, so it has with us. 

Upon enrollment we were found to be one hundred and fifty-nine strong, seven of 
our number being women. We were one of the largest entering classes in the history 
of the school. Our aim is to gain the added distinction of being one of the finest. The 
first few days on the campus consisted of being initiated to the new environment, 
causing bewilderment, surprise, and delight. The difficulties and achievements we 
experienced were those of any normal freshmen group. Our dignity was somewhat 
lessened by the necessity of wearing those little blue caps signifying frosh, but we soon 
became accustomed to them. In fact so vital a part of our person that we would have 
felt lost and unnatural without them — as we did for a period following the hat rush 
which marked the end of the compulsory wearing of this head gear. Then, too, we 
found it a very worthwhile policy to show a great deal of awe and respect (at least 
in public) for the Senior members of the school. This soon vanished, however, and 
was replaced by a sincere feeling of appreciation and respect for the upper classmen. 
They proved to be friends of the finest type. We certainly found the class of '32 a 
fine group of young men and women. 

At the final election the following were chosen to represent the class in the 
capacity of class officers : president, John Turner ; vice-president, Carl Frank ; secretary, 
Raymond A. Shulander; treasurer, Barbara Desoe. 

In athletics and other extra activities the freshmen took active and prominent 
part. The football and basketball teams were made up largely of freshmen. This 
should add greatly to the strength of these teams next year. The same is true of the 
hockey squad, although due to the weather conditions only one game was played. 

Two dances were given during the winter term by the school, one by the freshmen 
class and one by the senior class. Each occasion was well attented and enjoyed by all. 

Our term of study on the campus has now drawn to a close and we're all 
looking forward to placement training. In a few days actual, practical work will 
replace and supplement the class and laboratory exercises, the first term of which we 
have just completed. Our class will be scattered throughout New England and in 
some cases even beyond the New England borders. Freshmen will live and study 
in different localities, meeting different people and encountering different experiences. 
And six months hence when we rejoin each other in Amherst we should have gained 
a great many things from this training that will aid us in making our last year at 
Stockbridge even better than our first. 

The curtain now falls on one of the happiest and most worthwhile periods of 
our lives, our first year at Stockbridge — we depart but will return next year to 
carry on. 

Herbert Stone.

With the opening of the Fall Term the S. C. S., despite its smallness began what 
turned out to be a pleasant and most enjoyable year. Seven old members returned and 
seven new members were taken into the Sorority. 

The freshmen were given their first taste of the Sorority social life on October 
third, when the organization held a picnic in Whatley Glen. Miss Hamlin and Miss 
Foley attended as guests. 

On Friday, October 30, the Freshman Initiation was held. 

During the fall term a good old fashioned cider and doughnut party and dance 
was given. This proved to be a very enjoyable occasion. 

The winter term opened with a bang and continued with much jollity and laughter. 
A party was held in Draper Hall with Mr. and Mrs. Smart acting as chaperones. During 
this term new officers were elected for the coming year. The following officers were 
elected: President, Carol A. Rider; vice-president, Barbara E. P. Desoe; treasurer, 
Virginia Reed; secretary, Ethel B. Carroll; sergeant-at-arms, Barbara E. P. Desoe. 

The annual S. C. S. Banquet was held this year at Bate's Inn with Miss Hamlin, 
the Sorority advisor, and Miss Foley as guests of honor. 

Thus ended the social activities of the S. C. S. for the year 1931-32.

September 28th, an eventful day in the lives of the 21 active members who returned 
to carry on for Kolony Klub. The metamorphosis from neophytes to seniors had been 
completed after six months of placement training, the final act in our first year as 
Stockbridge men. Preparations were immediately begun to welcome the Freshmen on 
Open House Night, which occurred on Sept. 30. A well filled house that enjoyed the 
Home talent acts put on, repaid our efforts. Oct. 10th, bids were sent out and ten of 
the recipients accepted. 

Keeping in mind our K. K. customs, "Prof. Nite" was held every Sunday during 
the first term. The enthusiasm displayed at these gatherings and the interest between 
Professor and student brought out by them, made "Prof. Nite" something to look 
forward to. 

The Initiation Banquet was held Oct. 31, graced by five members of the Faculty 
and Alumni, who helped the active members make the evening a memorable one for 
the Freshmen. 

For social entertainment two "Vic" parties were held as well as the aforementioned 
banquet. A new Majestic radio and "Vic" combination furnished the music. 

Our second rushing season ushered in the Winter term. Of the bids sent out, 
nine men accepted and were initiated. Later on in the term five more bids were sent 
out and accepted, which closed our Freshman bidding. 

Our Winter House Dance was held in collaboration with A. T. G., at the Lord 
Jeffrey Inn on Feb. 26th. Two more "Vic" parties, in Feb. and March, completed our 
dancing program outlined for this term. The latter, a Valentine Day event, furnished 
an opportunity to decorate the House in the spirit of the occasion. 

The Farewell Banquet, which climaxed our contact with the Freshmen, was attended 
by Director Verbeck and 21 members of the Faculty and several Alumni. Despite that 
"all gone" feeling any Farewell Banquet is apt to bring on, the evening was most 
successful and thoroughly enjoyed by all. 

The last term brought out our training in some branches with the maintenance work 
done on the grounds about the house. Two more "Vic" parties, April 1st and 23rd, 
kept the active members socially prepared for the final dance of the year, and what 
proved to be an evening that will long be remembered. 

Commencement week-end was appropriately begun by our Formal House Dance, 
Friday, June 3rd, with music furnished by "Irv" Guyer and his orchestra from 
Springfield. As a closing gesture to our social life, it left nothing to be desired. The 
future will often be gladdened by memories of this night. 

Our year is ended, and with regret, but in the passing, most thoroughly enjoyed 
and profitably spent. The education derived and contacts made will ever serve to 
remind us of the days at Kolony Klub and Stockbridge, two years of utmost joy and 
happiness. And so we write "Finis" with a last wish of good luck to Kolony Klub 
and the incoming seniors. May their year be one of joy and good fortune in every way.

Another year is past and now another page is added to the history of Alpha Tau 
Gamma. Under able leadership and cooperation of all the members A. T. G., has 
made excellent progress. The house was reopened and occupied by the new delegation 
on Sunday, September 27, and attention turned at once to the pledging of new members. 
Wednesday, the 30th, we held the annual smoker and house warming. Eight seniors 
and sixteen freshmen received initiation. 

The club held its annual initiation banquet this year at the Hotel Northampton 
on the evening of November 12. The greeting of the seniors was extended by 
L. Ivan Bruce, to which John M. Turner responded for the initiates. All of us 
enjoyed an interesting program with Professors Ralph A. Van Meter, Victor A. Rice, 
Rollin H. Barrett and Instructor Harold W. Smart as faculty speakers. "Bud" Davis 
was at his best with wit, and all enjoyed the program of entertainment interspersed with 
song and other musical numbers. 

Work in and about the house was carefully carried on by Leonard Burnham, 
chairman of the house committee. Shrubbery was set out, the summer collection of 
junk moved away and the lawn was fixed up. Inside we had regular "house cleanings" 
and the fireplace room made into a trophy and banner room having in it a register for 
alumni who come back. The walls were covered with college and A. T. G. banners, 
framed campus pictures, and freshman hats. Each of the study rooms had cleaning 
schedules which were enforced. 

Several improvements were made on the house. The upstairs bathroom received 
an over-hauling and a coat of paint. At the end of the winter term the downstairs 
floor underwent complete rejuvenation. The old wall and wiring was replaced by 
new. The floor was jacked up and leveled, then a new hardwood floor laid and polished. 

It hasn't been all work here tho. We have had our good times in big ways. 
The Club held its annual fall house dance at the Women's Club. Next term came 
the inter-fraternity house dance with K. K., February 26 at the Lord Jeff. This 
,dance was one of the most pleasant events of the year and will be remembered for 
a long time by all of us. 

Inter-fraternity competition was started again this year but due to complications 
which arose in getting the cage for our activities we were unable to terminate the 
events. "Tommy" O'Connor, chairman of the Sunday night programs committee, 
opened a series of weekly entertainments. Among them was Mr. Shaugnessy of the 
American Federation of Magicians, movies of the Stockbridge-Deerfield football game 
and one Sunday evening was devoted to "Prof's night." Several members of the 
faculty were guests of the house and enjoyed a sociable evening in an informal way. 

Thursday evening, March 3, the seniors gave the freshman a farewell banquet 
at the Hotel Northampton. An interesting and enjoyable program was followed by 
election of officers of the new delegation. "Teddy" Wyckoff was elected president 
for the coming year. 

But time doesn't stand still and Commencement came with its hurry, fluster, and 
excitement. Now we join the ranks of those who look backward — and remember. 
A. T. G. means so much to all of us, its contacts, the fellowship of being and living 
together, and the everlasting friendships we've made, all blend to give us the infinite 
something that will always be with us, — that we can never forget. 

Thomas L. Abbott. 


fortn ?£ lall 

Lorin E. Ball, better known to the Stockbridge group as "Red," graduated from 
Massachusetts Agricultural College in 1921. As an undergraduate "Red" was vitally 
interested in athletics, winning his letter in baseball and basketball. He has continued 
in the field of work he has liked best. Since graduation he has served the institution 
in the capacity of an athletic assistant and in 1924 he was assigned as instructor in 
Physical Education in charge of the Stockbridge School football and basketball squads. 
With the opening of the new Physical Education Building in the fall of 1931, and the 
appointment of Coach Mel Taube to the college staff as football and basketball coach, 
Instructor Ball was placed in full charge of the Physical Education program of Stock- 
bridge. He is a coach, an official par excellence and above all else a real teacher. 

A thorough master of his subject, tireless in his efforts to make details clear, he 
has had marked success with the athletic teams and the recreation work of the Stock- 
bridge School. He is generous and loyal to a fault and whole heartedly devoted to 
his work. "Red" is respected and liked by all those who come in contact with him, 
and under his guidance the Stockbridge teams have exemplified the highest in sports- 
manship and athletic ideals. 

"Where's Red?" is one of the common expressions when Stockbridge Alumni 
return for commencement, and is indicative of the esteem and popularity he has attained. 






Coach Ball had a squad of fifty odd football aspirants when school opened but 
injuries soon claimed over twelve of them. Everything seemed to point to a successful 
season as "Red" had four letter men as a nucleus and several more promising senior 
and freshmen candidates to fill in with. Assistant Coach Tuttle took charge of the 
second squad as he did last year. Several of his charges joined the varsity squad 
later in the season. 

HARTFORD 27— S. S. A. 6 

Stockbridge opened its 1931 football season with Hartford High at Hartford. 
Coach Ball was undecided as to what combination to start and made many replacements 
during the game. 

Hartford showed her superiority early in the game and gained at will thru a 
heavier but unexperienced Stockbridge line. The High School boys scored three touch- 
downs in the first half while Captain Robinson's team could do no better than reach 
the 20 yard line where it lost the ball on a signal mix-up. Hartford scored again early 
in the third period to put the score at 27 — 0. Late in the third period, with Skelton 
carrying the brunt of the attack, Stockbridge made their only score. The final period 
was scoreless with neither team being able to advance the ball for any substantial gain. 

This game was rather disastrous as two first string men were lost for the remainder 
of the season. 


-"UTPT'-^ UTOxl 

S. S. A. 12— CATHEDRAL 6 

Stockbridge opened its home season October 16, by entertaining Cathedral high 
of Springfield on Alumni Field. Many new faces were seen in the Stockbridge lineup 
as some of the first team players were temporarily incapacitated. 

Cathedral presented her usual stubborn defense, keeping the local boys from scoring 
until the middle of the second period. In this surge Frank and Skelton carried the ball 
seventy yards on oflf tackle plays and wedges. Early in the third period with Skelton 
and Robinson as chief factors, Stockbridge started a midfield drive which terminated 
when Skelton crossed the goal line standing up, on a "quick opening play" from the 
five yard line. Captain Robinson gained the extra point on a cross-back. At this point 
Cathedral showed a punch and scored late in the third period after several exchanges 
of punts. 

Neither team scored in the final period although the Blue and White were con- 
tinually the aggressor. 

C. A. C. "FROSH" 31— S. S. A. 7 

Connecticut "Aggie Frosh" journeyed from Storrs, October 23. to meet Stockbridge 
in the second home game. The "Frosh" presented a formidable line-up in hopes of 
avenging last year's defeat. 

The visitors started off by marching the length of the field with an ease that bid ill 
for the locals. To everyone's surprise Stockbridge retaliated in the same manner with 
Faszczewski finally scoring on an end run of ten yards. Frank captured the extra 
point with a wedge. The "Frosh" dominated in the second period by virtue of a 
seventy-five yard run back by Lucani, visiting quarterback. In the third period Lucani 
again ran wild through a dazed Stockbridge team, scoring twice more. Late in the 
final period Stockbridge regained confidence and started a drive which fell five yards , 
short of the goal line as the final whistle sounded. 

Robinson and Carpenter excelled for Stockridge while Lucani of the "Frosh" was 
undoubtedly the outstanding man on the field. 


On October 30, Stockbridge and Williston fought to a tie as a result of a touched 
ball being recovered by Williston end behind the Stockbridge goal line. 

Stockbridge scored early in the opening period after a number of scintillating 
runs by Frank. One of these, an end run of fifteen yards, resulted in a touchdown. 
Frank also converted the extra point on a faked pass. Here the Blue and White settled 
down and contented themselves with holding an outweighted and inferior team. In 
the final period McGouigle, Academy fullback, punted deep into the Stockbridge terri- 
tory where the ball was touched by a "sub" quarterback and allowed to roll into the 
end zone, Shaw, Williston right-end, recovered for a touchdown. Clark, Academy 
half-back, dropkicked for the extra point. The game ended with Stockbridge putting 
on a determined drive for a touchdown. 


Stockbridge journeyed to New Britain, Connecticut, on November 7, to receive one 
of the worst lacings ever administered to a team coached by "Red" Bail. Stockbridge 
was smothered under an avalanche of touchdowns. Bay lock, scoring three times was 
the chief ofi^endor. 

The Blue and White featured a line that a strong breeze would have knocked over 
and a secondary that forgot to tackle all afternoon. Most of the touchdowns came as 
a result of off tackle plays in which the ball carriers ran unmolested thru the entire 


team without a Stockbridge man leaving his feet. New Btitain started her second 
team but soon withdrew them in favor of the first team, as Stockbridge showed power 
in the opening minutes. Wedges were the only plays that gained for Stockbridge, 
these often resulting in first downs. 


Stockbridge further added to the misery of the dopesters in defeating the undefeated 
and highly touted Springfield "Frosh" eleven Nov. 14, at Springfield. 

Stockbridge showed a complete reversal of form and overcame the odds to hold 
the "Frosh" on even terms during the first two periods and to show the way throughout 
the last two stanzas. 

Gavoni put Springfield into the lead early in the opening period with a 30 yard 
placement boot. After this the ball remained in enemy territory while Stockbridge 
hammered a practically immovable "Frosh" line with very little success. Kovar's long 
spirals kept Springfield continually on the defense. Midway through the final period 
Stockbridge forced herself into a favorable scoring position. Skelton passed to Jaeger 
for a twenty yard gain which brought the ball to the ten yard line. After a series of 
line bucks which failed to gain Skelton again passed to Jaeger who stepped across the 
goal line. Skelton scored the extra point on a line buck. Springfield spent the remain- 
ing moments in throwing futile passes. 

S. S. A. 19— Deerfield 

Realizing that the undefeated Academy team would provide the toughest of oppo- 
sition, Stockbridge journied to Deerfield with a spirit and a self confidence that could 
not be denied. 

Showing a vicious offensive and the same type' of defensive play used against 
Springfield "Frosh", the Stockbridge boys swept over a fighting Deerfield team to the 
tune of 19 — 0. Stockbridge made eleven first downs and a total of 288 yards against 
two first downs and 80 yards for the Green team. 

With Skelton and Robinson carrying the brunt of the attack the ball was brought 
from midfield to the Academy two yard line by a series of power plays, where, after 
being held for three downs, Skelton, Stockbridge quarterback, crashed through for the 
initial score of the game. Faszczewski intercepted a pass mid-way through the third 
period and ran thirty yards for the second touchdown of the game. Martin advanced 
the ball fifteen yards, to the five yard marker, after intercepting a forward pass. Skelton 
crashed through for the final touchdown while Frank gained the extra point. 

Thus Stockbridge terminated a successful season by gaining the first victory over Deer- 
field in eleven years of rivalry. 

The following men received letters: '32 — Urban Charles, Framingham; E. Warren 
Skelton, Newton Highlands; Floyd Robinson, Captain, Lexington; Dwight Williams, 
Poughkeepsie, N. Y. 

Those who received sweaters as well as letters are as follows: Class of '32 — Leonard 
Burnham, Gloucester; Duane Carpenter, Jr., Bedford; Charles Dawson, Lynn; Harold 
Ek, Brockton; Joseph Faszczewski, Brockton; Kenneth Keith, Bridgewater; Steven 
Kovar, Brookline; John Sheridan, Clinton; Timothy Rabbitt, Holyoke; Joseph 
Saalfrank, Jr., Manager, Lawrence; Manuel Soares, Fairhaven. Class of '33 — Kurken 
Amerian, Watertown; John Smith, South Dartmouth; Frank Small, New Bedford; 
Alfred Jaeger, Newark, New Jersey; John Martin, Captain-elect, Waquoit; Carl Frank, 






The 1932 Stockbridge Basketball team played its first game, January 11, on the 
new floor in the college cage. Hopkins Academy finally won out in a slow and uninter- 
esting game. 


Deerfield Academy came down to the college on the night of the 26th with the 
determination to partially avenge her football defeat. The Stockbridge team was over- 
whelmed the first half. The score at the half being Deerfield Academy 32 — Stockbridge 
■j. The second half was more closely contested, chiefly because of the scoring of 14 
points by Hagelburg. 


Stockbridge fell an easy victim to a strong Agawam team in the third game of the 
year. Unable to score through the Agawam defense, our team was held to four points 
by fouls. 


Stockbridge won its first game by defeating Smith Aggies of Northampton. Leading 
only 14-11 at the end of the first half, Stockbridge started a scoring streak at the opening 
of the second half that couldn't be headed. Livermore was high scorer. 


Led by Livermore, Stockbridge won a low scoring game from the high school boys. 
Amherst held to two baskets from the floor, could not penetrate the Stockbridge defense. 
One of the best crowds of the season attended this. game. 

Piling up a lead of 17-2 at the end of the first half, Deerfield High proved to be 
too much for the Stockbridge men. "With Hagelburg leading the attack during the 
last half, Stockbridge out-scored their opponents but were unable to top them. 

Palmer came from behind to win a close and interesting game. Woodward led 
on the scoring for Stockbridge. 

The Stockbridge men lacked team work thus they lost a slow moving game to 
Bay Path. Capt. Toko played a fine game for Stockbridge. The game was rather rough 
and Stockbridge scored many of its points on fouls. 


Playing their first game away from home our team seemed to be a little wobbly 
during the first half, the score at the end being Williston 20 — Stockbridge 6. Coming 
back fast in the second half, Stockbridge caused Williston quite a bit of trouble. With 
Capt. Toko and Hagelburg running up the points the game became fast and furious. 
It was anybody's game until the final whistle. 


Stockbridge received the severest set back of the season at Turners Falls in a game 
with the Turners Falls H. S. Outclassed and handicapped by an unusually slippery 
floor, the team still fought to the end. 

With a brand of basketball that was far better than average, the Stockbridge team 
held a fast moving St. Anselm's team to no score during the first quarter. St. Anselm's 
with its wholesale substitutions gradually got going, the score at the half being 9 — 9- 
But for brilliant work by Foulsham and Livermore in the final half, the game might 
well have become a walk-away, as St. Anselm's Prep was working smoothly and scoring 
many long shots. 

The line-up for Stockbridge was as follows: Captain, Toko; Foulsham, r. f . ; Wood- 
ward and Webb, 1. f. ; Shulander and Foulsham, r. g. ; Livermore and Doskotz, I. g. ; 
Hagelberg, c. 

Foulsham was elected captain for the following year. 




A very successful hockey season was anticipated this year as practically an entire 
veteran team reported to Coach "Mel" Taube at the beginning of the season. Unfortu- 
nately the depression overtook us also and as a result we were only able to play one game. 

Deerfield Academy came down to play us with the advantage of having played 
several games. We jumped into the lead at the outset but Deerfield triumphed in the 
end, 6 — 2 in a better played game than the score indicates. Our men lacked endurance, 
a result of their being on ice but three times during the season. 

Letters were awarded to: class of '32 — Urban Charles, Framingham ; Duane 
Carpenter, Jr., Bedford; Francis Dolan, Billerica; Leon Pearson, Lynnfield Centre; Floyd 
Robinson, Lexington; Joseph Saalfrank, Lawrence; E. Warren Skelton, Newton High- 
iands; Daniel Warren, Brookline. 

Letters and sweaters were awarded to: class of '32 — Nelson Noren, Bridgeport, 
Conn.; Maurice Ryan, Peabody; Sherwood Stedman, Manager, Brockton. 







Last fall five of the six original men came back determined to put Stockbridge 
cross-countty on the map. Several new seniors and a fine group of freshmen built up 
the squad to over 20 by the middle of October. The enthusiasm was so great that 
Coach Derby had to arrange for three meets in order for the men to burn up some of 
their surplus energy. 

On October 29, the Amherst Freshmen came and raced our team over our own 
course. This race uncovered one exceptionally good runner in the person of a Stock- 
bridge freshman by the name of Harold J. Pearson. He romped home easily to win 
first place. A strong group of runners followed to lend sufficient strength to win 
the race by the score of 221/^ — 45%. Batchelor, a newcomer from the senior class, 
came in strong to place third. 

With the record of their first win in mind, a confident and determined group of 
Stockbridge men traveled up to Amherst College to race their Junior Varsity. With 
Harold J. Pearson coasting along to place first, Ralph Dick coming thru to capture fourth 
place and then four other Stockbridge men coming in in close order, the team again 
showed both individual and team strength. The score was 23 — 39 in Stockb ridge's 

The final meet of the year was a five sided one between the Amherst "Frosh" and 
J. Vs., the Mass. State "Frosh" and "Jr. V's," and Stockbridge. This was by far the 


hardest race of the year as more than sixty men were running together. Though Mass. 
State "Frosh" team won the race by quite a margin, the Stockbridge men can feel more 
than proud of their showing for they furnished about all of the competition. Harold J. 
Pearson gave the winner a hard battle, finishing a close second. Capt. L. E. Pearson, 
the second Stockbridge man to finish, captured seventh place, while several others were 
but a short way behind. All the times were fast, the first man breaking the course 
record by about 20 seconds. The score was Mass. State "Frosh" 23, Stockbridge 55, 
Amherst Junior Varsity 123, Amherst "Frosh" 132, and Mass. State Junior Varsity 

At the conclusion of the season the Stockbridge athletic board voted to recognize 
cross country as a sport and awarded letters to the following men, Capt. L. E. Pearson, 
H. J. Pearson, Douglas Batchelor, Emil Jaeschke, and H. Bishop. 

Numerals were awarded to W. Perkins, Ralph Dick, S. Mistarka, P. Koistinen, and 
Charles Hendrick and to the assistant managers Sullivan, Nye, and Vuornos. 

The captain-elect for next fall's team is Hagelburg and the manager-elect is 
Milton Swanson. 



At the beginning of the winter term Coach Derby sent forth a call for candidates 
for the Stockbridge track team. About thirty men reported and started limbering up. 

The first meet was with the Amherst "Sophs". On account of the "Sophs" more 
balanced squad, Stockbridge was outscored 85 — 47. Two Stockbridge men, Stedman, '32, 
and Pearson, '33, starred, however, and together scored most of their team's points. 
Stedman with 21 points was high scorer. 

On February 15th the Amherst "Frosh" came across town to pay a visit. Again 
the factor cf team balance came into play and Stockbridge was again defeated. Stedman 
came through as usual and received the highest score of the afternoon. 

The last meet was with the Mass. State "Frosh". The "Frosh" team proved to be 
an easy victim, Stockbridge winning with a score of 75 — 50. This was one of Stedman's 
big days as he won the broad jump, the 220 yd. run, the 35 yd. dash and the high and 
low hurdles. H. Pearson also came through strong, winning both the half-mile and 
mile quite easily. 

Although this record appears to be unfavorable from the standpoint of wins and 
losses, Stockbridge may well feel proud of her 1932 track team. This is the first 
organized track team that Stockbridge has ever had. The spirit and talent that was 
demonstrated bids well for the future of Stockbridge track. 

The following men received letters: Sherwood Stedman, '32, Brockton; 'Walter 
Planitzer, Lawrence; Ralph Stratton, Boston; Emil Jaeschke, Adams; Stuart Thurber, '32, 
Manager, Brattleboro, Vt. ; Harold Pearson, '33, Lowell.

The 1932 Student Council has had a most active and successful year. Commencing 
at the very start of the year the senior members met with the freshman class three times 
during the first two days. Campus rules, class rules and various other points that might 
be misunderstood and cause friction were explained at this time. 

The three class meetings, two freshman and one senior, were conducted by the 
Student Council. This was a duty that the Council assumed for the first time and is 
one which they fee! should be continued by succeeding council groups. 

The constitution was found to be madequate and was therefore revised. These 
changes proved to be helpful in the council work throughout the year. One of these 
changes was in the carrying out of the hat rush which was conducted entirely under 
the supervision of the council members and proved a very enjoyable affair to all 

The Council appreciates the spirit of cooperation that the members of the two 
classes evidenced and wishes to bequeath to the succeeding council the same fine spirit 
of fellowship that we have enjoyed this year. 

James A. Sullivan, President.

An impQEOSIOD ^-^ PLAC£r22Er2T 


When I showed up for work one morning in the Green Mountain Ice Cream plant 
I was asked, "Can you shovel coal?" At the same moment I was handed a brand new 
shovel and a clean white uniform. Thus was I initiated into my work by shoveling 
good Pennsylvania Bituminous coal for the next 9 hours. The day flew by fast with 
plenty of laughs and arguments relative to the value of coke and hard coal as heating 

When a warm spell happened along and I as a newcomer was hurried a bit, I 
always heard the remark, "Wait till summer comes." One day a large number of the 
State Constabulary parked themselves in the freezing room. I remarked, "What is it, 
a hold-up?" No such luck, it was just another proof that despite the depression even 
the officers of the law are 100% in back of our old dairy products. The officers were 
all smiles and anxious to sample and O. K. our products regardless of the color or flavor. 

One morning the boss said, "Couple of you fellows are wanted at the ranch." 
Another fellow and myself went to see what was doing. We found that we were 
supposed to set up some electric light poles, Edison Light style near the factory. With 
the help of five pairs of brawny arms, a Mack truck, and ice picks we set up the first pole. 
The driver of the "Mack" gave us fair warning to fly if we let a pole bury him in his 
cab. We finally got the pole up at something approaching the perpendicular. The poles 
were not imbedded very deeply and therefore wavered slightly. The Frigidaire Man said,. 
"Why pick on me to string a light wire at the top of those poles." That part was left 
for another day so we didn't see "Johnnie" perform the steeple jack trick on top of those 
overgrown bean poles. 

On another nice busy day the lights went "out" in the hardening rooms. Lanterns 
were hung for headlights on the hand trucks which were used to convey the ice cream 
in and out of the hardening rooms. I soon found out how little I knew about where 
the sweet strawberry flavor was stocked up. The floor was very slippery and treacherous 
and when I finally secured a load and pushed it to the loading platform I would be 
informed emphatically that "I said, strawberry not cherry." Both were naturally of a 
pinkish hue. We hoped the good old days of lantern light would be over soon in 
order that we might see more clearly. They were according to a pal of mine at the 
plant only two varieties of help. One variety return the implements they borrow and 
the other variety always forgets to return them. He had some choice titles for each 
variety but I can not recall them. I often wondered into which variety I belonged 
but luckily he kept it a secret. 

On placement I learned how time and can covers can fly. I picked up a lot of 
things relative to dairy manufactures that have and will be of extreme value to me. 
I wouldn't have missed that six months placement cruise around Franklin County under 
the personal supervision of "Em." Grayson, for the world.

Arrived at Poeghquag, N. Y., my destination, late in the evening of a certain day 
in March. Was duly welcomed by the farm hostler and his dog; the hostler was 
friendly, his dog was not. I was shown to my room which was very pleasant except 
for a queer, rasping sound that seemed to emanate from the east wall. On raising my 
eyebrows interrogatively at the hostler I was rewarded with — "That's your boss, young 
fellow like yourself. He was tired." 

After a beautiful night's rest, I awakened at 6:30 to meet the members of the tribe 
I was to associate with for six months. They were all pleasant. The boss broke down 
and confessed to "being a Stockbridge man." I next met the personnel consisting of 
thirty men of mixed colors. After which I was introduced first to three hundred head 
of cattle and seven teams of horses and then finally to the orchard which comprised 
ninety-five acres out of the one hundred sixty acres total. 

From then on pruning was the question, until one day the weather seemed to warm 
perceptibly. Moanings and groanings were heard in the shops where the sprayers had 
hibernated for the winter. These instruments of torture were soon brought forth and 
I was immediately married, without ceremony, to one of them. To make matters more 
interesting in this fight against insects the boss operated one and instigated a little 
contest, without prizes, in which the idea was to throw on as much spray as humanly 
possible. Clever of the boss — what? Theme song: — "Sweetheart if you could spray, 
a million tanks a day!" 

The boss taught me all the finesse I now have in the art of manipulating a spray 
gun. Boys, the boss makes or breaks a job! Et quam! 

From then on to the picking season, when not floating in spray, my idle hours were 
spent in gassing woodchucks, hand spreading fertilizers, manipulating a Fordson with 
everything from a dead cow to a trailer load of fruit behind it, delving into the 
mysteries of the city of Poughkeepsie, and attending fruit meetings on different farms. 

These meetings put on by the Farm Bureau with "Joe" Evans, a Mass. State 
graduate, presiding, were interesting and educational. Many of the men at these meet- 
ings were either Stockbridge or State men. 

At last the sprayers had discharged their last gallon, they were stowed away and 
then the picking gang was slowly assembled. 

Harvest! Twenty men and four women worked from morning 'til night plucking 
the delectable fruit from the trees, grading, packing, and loading on trucks which 
hopped the fruit to New York City. There it was placed on market with a prayer from 
all who had a hand in any of the operations, that it might sell and yield a profit of a 

During these operations one day, I noticed a familiar character seemingly lost in 
the wilderness, coming through the trees. On closer inspection I discovered it to be 
my brother! Six months training was now over, back to civilization for me. A tearful 
leave taking and we were off. Such was the placement training of one pomology major. 

I like to look on placement as the period of awakening. It gave me first-hand 
information about my major and for the first time I became really acquainted with the 

-'i.jruT-m Lxxixi 

trials and tribulations associated with that major. I think that before I went out on 
placement I never stopped to consider the possible bad features in the field I was 
choosing as my life's work. I believe that President Thatcher was right when he said, 
"Placement is the most important part of your school work." 

The experience that you acquired while on placement cannot be measured from a 
dollars and cents view point, but you all know that your second year studies were made 
easier and you got a lot more out of them after having served six months of placement 

In opening this article I said that I liked to look on placement as the period of 
awakening. To my mind that is the most suitable name that could be applied to it. 
In a large majority of cases you had never done any practical work in your major field. 
Your training so far had been, for the most part, purely theoretical. This lack of expe- 
rience cast a glamour over a new adventure, a glamour which in most cases was quickly 
shattered by the practical everyday routine. 

In my own case the first jolt came at five o'clock in the morning. That was the 
beginning of the farmer's day. I worked from then until six at night and some nights 
until ten and eleven o'clock. To make it worse, the first of the month often brought 
no additional remuneration for the extra work accomplished. Then came a cold rainy 
day. In spite of the rain, however, there were the chicks to be fed, and the stoves 
to be fired, so I kept plugging along regardless of the rain and the cold brisk wind 
which made working out-of-doors far from comfortable. It was then that I said to 
myself, '"Why did you ever take this job anyway?" 

The test had come and in the meeting and conquering of each succeeding difficulty 
as it arose, I received my most valuable training. My eyes were opened to many of the 
unforeseen emergencies which might arise at any time. I was now seeing the practical 
side of my work, and beginning to realize that along with the good there has to be 
some bad. Perhaps I asked myself, "Are you satisfied with your chosen work or are 
you going to look for a more agreeable way to earn your living?" 

Now, has placement been a help or a hindrance in clearing up the illusions under 
which you were working? Do you know now whether or not you are getting what 
you want? If you decide that you are not, placement training will have accomplished 
one thing, at least, in putting you on the right track, and saving you from wasting 
another year in the wrong field. 

I think that if you were to ask any man who has been graduated from Stockbridge 
what he thought of placement training, he would say, "There is nothing that can take 
its place or perform as great a service to the school and student. To my mind it is 
placement training that makes Stockbridge perhaps the very best two-year course of 
its kind."

"Wiley, I think I will send you to Newton," said "Em" Grayson on a damp, 
rainy morning. "Yes, the Superintendent of the Newton Cemetery said, that he would 
take a man and you can try the job." Down dropped my jaw for my mind pictured 
a Hallowe'en nightmare on top of a mince pie and pickle feed. I knew such things 
as burial grounds existed but to ever work in such a place, how absurd. 

Nevertheless down I went to Newton that very week-end for who was going to 
sign a contract to work in Heaven or H without even an introduction. A beautiful 



bed of pansies first struck my eye as I turned in at the gate. A courteous reception by 
the women in the office and then face to face with the "Big Boss." He was quite 
human, much to my surprise. He said that he had been a kid once and would therefore 
give me a chance. "Report at the greenhouse, Monday morning, March 29th," were 
the orders. 

During the first two months I had no more idea of cemetery work than the "man 
in the moon" for my job was chiefly about the greenhouses with the occasional planting 
of a vine or bush. If I am not mistaken I planted a woodbine for one lot owner. There 
came an order at 4:45 p. m. for me to do the work. With a spade in one hand and 
hanging on with the other, I stood on the running board of a new limousine as it 
lunged and heaved around numerous bends. Every minute I expected my shovel to 
carve some modernistic design in a paint job as dazzling as the midday sun. 

Upon my returning to the greenhouses, after the planting was completed, the follow- 
ing words were exchanged during a talk with the foreman. "How did you make out?" 
he asked. "O. K. Was there any particular trick to it? I hope it will grow," I 
replied. "Well, if you are sure you buried the roots instead of the branches I guess it 
will alright," came the reply accompanied with a grin. 

Who said a cemetery was a dead place? We have listened for hours to the call 
of the Bob White and as the sun began to set we heard the moo of many cows in a 
far off pasture. Day after day we watched the squirrels play tag among the trees and 
of all the manoeuvres that man can execute with his little tin fleets none can equal 
the feats of mother duck and her squadron as they swim, first in the Big Pond and then 
in the Fountain Pond. Then, drowning out all other sound for awhile, came the sharp, 
challenging, fear instilling call of the Blue Jay. No, a cemetery in the summer is far 
from a dead place. 

Cemetery work is, of course, a business. However, if one has not that touch of 
human love for his fellow men, it is no place for him to work. The following is an 
illustration of the parts that pathos and humor play in the daily routine. 

One day as we were raking up leaves in front of the office, there drove up to the 
curb, a car containing two well dressed women both of whom seemed to be in anything 
but a harmonious and peaceful frame of mind. As the car stopped one lady stepped 
out and hastily entered the office. The one remaining in the car became more and 
more uneasy until at last she beckoned for us to approach. As we did so, she imme- 
diately asked in a high pitched voice, "Do you know what we just saw?" We looked 
dumb so she continued, "We just saw the bones of the mother of my friend. We 
do not know where the skull is. Where are you, men? Does not the superintendent 
know what is happening about his own grounds?" After this barrage had somewhat 
subsided, we inexperienced workers tried to quiet her with a few comforting words 
until the boss came along and took charge of the situation. This seemingly dire event 
proved to be nothing but the result of two sets of high strung nerves coming in combina- 
tion with an unusual but quiet natural happening. It seems that the particular grave 
they were looking at had settled, which is only natural after a few years, however, in its 
settling, it had exposed to view a few white roots of a neighboring shrub. These roots 
the women had strangely taken to be bones. 

It is experiences such as these that help to make work in a cemetery interesting. 
Perhaps no where else do you meet events of a like nature. For this reason the joviality 
of the golf course, the soddenness of estate maintainance and the touch of the nursery 


-^^^rcrr"^^ uroxi 

do not appeal to me. This period of placement training has proved of immense value 
to me. It has made me realize the attractiveness of a life in which one can render such 
a distinct and valuable service to mankind.

B-r-r-r, 4:50 A. M., dark, cold, strange, but I have got to start milking those cows 
at 5:00 o'clock. Boy, but the "Boss" looked hard boiled when he told me that last 
night. I wonder whom I'll be milking with. I never milked much but well here goes. 
These were a few of the many thoughts that raced through my mind as I tumbled into 
my clothes and struggled out to the barn exactly at five, only to learn that I was twenty 
minutes ahead of anyone else. Boy! ! was it cold and lonesome those first few moments 
of my first morning on placement. 

My first real taste of placement came with two solid weeks of trimming apple trees 
in all kinds of weather. During this time I not only learned how to trim trees but 
also learned that the "Boss" wasn't so hard boiled after all. In fact he was a darned 
"good sport." I found that the other men were used to working with us poor misguided 
placement boys and were willing to lend both help and advice at all times. 

Time went fast, too fast, and almost before I got there it was plowing and then 
planting time. This meant riding the tractor eight or nine hours a day, or setting back 
of a potato planter, or worst of all, five days of setting cabbage plants in the rain and 
mud. Then followed one continuous whirl of cultivating, spraying of apples and 
potatoes, sawing wood, taking care of a couple hundred of birds, (a before breakfast 
chore), and numerous other pleasantries, such as, piloting the "honey wagon" and like 

Of course I could go on indefinitely and tell about the haying, apple picking, potato 
digging, corn picking, and fall plowing, but it really wouldn't mean much more than 
a repetition of what I have already said. There are other much more interesting sides 
of placement to tell about. Such a one was a market trip into Boston. This required 
-the getting up at 1:00 A. M., the driving in with a load of apples, the selling of the 
load and then the getting back in time to do a day's work. There were also times when 
the "Boss" asked my advice on some matter. Did I feel big and did I expand on the 
subject in question! He probably understood and didn't laugh too hard. It wasn't all 
work, for there was the old Ford which meant good times on those days we had off. 
Even if it did pour all day and the old top on the Ford leaked, we had fun. 

It's funny how a fellow changes when he gets out among strangers. I went on 
placement with the idea that I would show the "Boss" how to feed the cows and tell 
what fertilizers to use. Boy, were most of my ideas all wet! I should not tell this 
about myself, but I actually fed the cows poultry mash for four days instead of the 
dairy feed — some balanced ration! By the time placement was coming to a close I 
began to give the "Boss" a little credit and admitted to myself that perhaps he could 
manage the farm quite well at that. I learned that to keep quiet and listen was the 
best method of acquiring knowledge. 

I finally decided that placement was the best thing that I had ever experienced. 
It wasn't just learning how to make "Susie" produce ten pounds more milk per day 
or how to make good corn grow where even weeds couldn't grow before, but rather how 
to get along with your fellow workers, how to learn new methods and to impart what 
you know, and how to form and value new friendships.

Lookout Farm, 
South Natick, Mass. 
August 4, 1931. 
Dear Friend: — 

There are many things which I could tell you about the training work that I am 
getting here at Lookout Farm. It is really difficult for one to know just where to begin 
because there are so many important features about vegetable growing. However, if 
you desire to be gainfully employed in agriculture and make good use of your time 
and money you'll find plenty of stiff problems and pleasure in associating with vegetable 
crops and all that goes with them. 

The boys who are working and living here on the place enjoy living in the 
fraternal like bunk room, at the rear of the large farm house. It is now so cool and 
comfortable here that I think I'll move in from my upstairs room. Ed Butler came 
here to work in the early part of June and two other fellows from the city were lured 
to the farm to get a healthy living and we're all just a happy family. 

During the early part of the season we had a number of crops in cold frames such 
as tomatoes, cabbage and lettuce. These crops required constant attention until they 
were set in the field. Most of the plants which I had handled didn't seem to suffer 
much when set in the field. 'With a little close attention and practice one can learn 
quite a bit about the proper handling of frame crops for setting out. Those plants 
which were grown in flats and beds simply had the moistened soil on their roots balled 
in the hands, set in empty flats and sent to the fields. Here two of us set out the plants, 
going for all we were worth while another fellow kept at a safe distance from us, drop- 
ping the plants. Tomatoes were the largest frame crop we handled and required 
careful attention in removing from pots and dropping in the fields so that the tops 
wouldn't break. More than once I spoiled a perfect plant. 

The boss of the farm usually works right with us in the fields and I never feel 
just like taking my time when an inspiring worker like him is around. If we were 
thinning and weeding carrots or pruning tomato vines it would almost be a race to see 
which one of us fellows could get the most work done. Sometimes we even got ahead 
of the boss. 

Every day after breakfast or dinner, we fellows of the bunk room would join the 
rest of the workers in the vegetable packing room to receive our working orders. Some- 
times two or three of us would be given work together cultivating the beets or onions 
while a group of five or six would be sent to pick beans. So most of us would pile 
on the market truck and ride through the fields and jump off at the places where we were 
to work. Quite often "Ed" Butler or I have to go out in the morning and cut a few 
bushels of spinach, summer squash and pull some carrots or beets. 'We wash these 
and send them down to the road side stand for sale. 'We also have quite a bunch of 
swme which are kept in two of the barns. These require daily attention and occasionally 
I am elected candidate to clean and feed them in the morning or at night. That's one 
job which I don't care about spending my time on. 

Now that our tomato crop is bearing nearly at its best, much time and attention 
must be given to it. In order to ptovide for this a gang of five men usually including 
myself have to continue pruning and training the vines and then pick the tomatoes. 
Most every morning we go up to the tomato field. On the way up each of us thins 


and weeds a row of Chinese Cabbage that lies in that direaion. Then the rest of the 
morning is spent pruning tomatoes, and before we know it 12 o'clock has arrived. 

When we return from the fields, cabbage, beets, beans, etc., are loaded on the 
truck and brought down to the washroom. Covered with dust and dirt as we usually 
are, each of us proceeds to get as much of it off as possible with scrub brushes and then 
forget about everything except eating dinner. Frequently on warm days the boys who 
bring their lunches go for a swim in the nearby river. Those of us boarding on the farm 
prefer to go swimming at night when we do not need to leave a hot meal when there's 
plenty of time to spare. 

I have had so many experiences and have learned so many things since training 
started that it's hardy possible to tell you all about them. I expected to get some work' 
with horses which was partly fulfilled because one of the teamsters was absent; and I 
eagerly tried to get as much experience as possible about spreading fertilizer and harrow- 
ing. When the tomato crop came along I went thru nearly all of the steps in the 
culture of the crop as well as the harvesting and grading of it. The latter requires 
pretty skillful handling and packing. 

If you were to ask me just what I liked most about vegetable growing, I would 
say the harvesting and preparing for market. It makes the farmer feel pretty proud to 
send well grown, cleaned and packed vegetables to market. As I remember it, about the 
biggest kick I got out of placement was the result of a trip into Boston market one 
Sunday with the foreman. We went in with a new Chevrolet truck, loaded down with 
tomatoes packed in baskets. 

A few days from now one of our fellow workers is leaving us and we are planning 
to celebrate the night before he leaves with a corn roast, marshmallow toast, and general 
good time. 

Just now as my placement training at Lookout is nearing the end I can look backf 
to the day when I first came here. How little knowledge I actually possesed of handling 
farm tools and work, and how numerous were the blunders and successes I experienced. 
This sort of training has done much to make me realize the problems of life which shall 
soon confront me and has given me fuller preparation to meet them. I'll miss doing 
chores in the morning, seeing the broad fields with crops and hearing my fellow workers 
singing as we keep plugging along at work. 

If possible I should like to have every day of my life work a day of placement. 
With its varied problems and interesting happenings one is kept continually on the 
alert and then after a few weeks, one has the pleasure of returning to school and 
renewing earlier friendships. 

Well, it is getting late and I have a hard day ahead of me tomorrow, so good night. 

"Charlie" Mavhew. 

"Bud" Davis says: — 

Now that the last of the mosquito bites have departed, and I can rest back 
comfortably in my chair without irritating last summer's sunburn, I begin to have 
recollections of that popular summer pastime for Stockbridge freshmen known as "place- 
ment training." 

I soon found out (I think it took about three days) that placement training was not 
a "bed of roses" although I was majoring in Floriculture. 


"^urDT-"-^^^ uroxi 

For my first job I was designated to work on the foundation of a new greenhouse 
that was to be erected, and for two weeks I loosened up soil and rocks with a well 
known tool called a pick, and placed the soil gently but firmly within trucks and 
wheelbarrows, sometimes being elected to the managership of a wheelbarrow. 

But I managed to keep my spirits from crashing completely by confidentially think- 
ing that better times were in store for me. 

And they were for most of my spare time during the latter part of April and 
nearly all of May was taken up with the planting of dahlias and gladioli. To get down 
in the field, with the freshly harrowed soil on a warm sunny spring day was certainly 
an oasis in the desert of my spiritual depression, and as the robins picked up occasional 
worms and birds sang I soon forgot my troubles with the pick and shovel, and life 
seemed worth living again. 

Then Memorial Day came with all of the extra work it creates and I passed a 
heaic ten days rushing from one flower pot to another and wondering what it was all 
about. It certainly was a "Memorial Day" all-right. I just can't forget it. 

After Memorial Day the rainy days were selected to plant out the miscellaneous 
annuals. You know, those days with enough rain to gradually seep through the clothing 
until one becomes not only exceedingly uncomfortable but also thoroughly wet. 

By July most of the mud had worked its way out of my hair and eyes and I was 
ready for anything. 

I didn't stay ready for anything for a great length of time, though. From planting 
annuals in the mud I graduated to benches with soil in the greenhouses. For those 
who have never been initiated into this job I will say that it is an annual sport of most 
greenhouse labors, and the game is played by filling large wheelbarrows with rich, new 
soil, maneuvering said vehicles through narrow doors, driving carefully up a narrow 
plank (generally in low gear) and depositing the soil within the sides of the bench. 
To get the full amount of enjoyment, the thermometer should register 95° F. or more, 
although it is possible to carry on when the mercury drops as low as 90° F. 

I spent the next month or so recuperating from the wheelbarrow sickness by 
carrying on my interest in Floriculture through the business end of a hoe. This 
monotony was broken up one day of each week by chasing a little motor cultivator up 
and down the rows of flowers in the field until it seemed as though I had walked two 
or three hundred miles. 

Of course there were innumerable jobs to attend to such has benching carnations, 
pinching back small flowering chrysanthemums, shifting pot plants, watering in the 
greenhouses and cold-frames, picking flowers, sorting them for sale, and many times 
attending to the wants of the customers which included anything from a Batchelor Button 
for the elderly gentleman's lapel to rescuing old ladies from bumble bees. 

As the bell rang for the last round or the month of September arrived I found that 
the work was becoming a part of me. Regardless of what the job was I managed to 
get some enjoyment out of it. The first month seemed to drag by, but the last month 
went by all too quickly. In the first month's work I disliked some of my duties, but 
the last month found me anxious to acccmplish more, and trying to improve myself as 
much as possible. The foundation was hardening, the six month's placement had 
moulded for me a firm footing to stand upon in later years. 

I now realize just what placement training means to a fellow. It makes a man out 
of a youth, or a better man out of a man, and there are very few fellows who go through 
with it without its instilling into them an indelible quality which increases their deter- 
mination and gives to them a greater knowledge and interest in their chosen field.

You, the Class of 1932 Stockbridge School of Agriculture, can well be proud of 
the departing remembrance you are leaving to the campus of your school. Your gift 
is not only extraordinary by the number and high quality of the trees, but more especially 
is it significant that this gift of ninety plants more than doubles the number of different 
forms of coniferous evergreens now exisiting on the campus, adding many new and 
much desired forms to our campus plantations. 

The first classes graduating from Massachusetts Agricultural College established the 
.tradition of "class trees." The students then went into the surrounding hills and from 
them brought the trees which now in maturity line our drives and shade our campus. 
Your trees too are class trees, in this same sense, the members of your class not only 
purchased, but also dug and planted them, and those who follow will also enjoy 
your gift. 

The trees you have given have been arranged in related groupings in three locations, 
the arborvitae and retinosporas near the old plant house, the junipers grouped as a 
natural "juniper growth" along the east hillside above the vegetable garden, and the 
larger trees, pines, firs and spruces, to the south of the "dingle" along the same hillside. 
So arranged, they form study areas which will appreciate every year both in aesthetic 
quality and in educational value. Thus they form the basis for larger groupings of 
similar trees which we hope to build into a "pinetum" as new material becomes available. 

Please accept my personal thanks and those of the College through me for this 
splendid Gift.

Adieu, Dear S. S. A., Adieu. 
We can no longer be with you. 
We came a grass green lot at most, 
With nothing much of which to boast. 
You taught us how all plants should grow, 
And how to keep their pests in tow. 
You showed us how to till the ground. 
You gave us knowledge broad and sound, 
Along the lines that we should know. 
And now we thank you S. S. A. — 
In a sturdy and heartfelt way. 
We know not what the future holds 
Though college years a lifetime molds. 
And so, if ever and anon 
Our paths seem dark and hard, or rough; 
Just thoughts of you will be enough 
To help us carry on.
