XYTE present this annual in appreciation of that future 
period when the memories of our school friends, 
school activities and school ideals will be hidden by the 
silvery clouds of time. It is an attempt to summarize and 
outline the activities and events we have experienced as a 
group. In it we have tried to inculcate the spirit and 
tradition established by the Class of 1933. That it serves 
its purpose is our sincerest hope.

TT seems especially fitting that the man chosen to be honored this year, in the dedication 
■*■ of The Shorthorn, is a great admirer of Levi Stockbridge, first Professor of Agriculture 
in this College, and later its President, after whom both Stockbridge Hall and the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture were named; Mr. Thayer has collected many inter- 
esting anecdotes of the agricultural member of that now famous "faculty of four" of 
the early days of the college. 

As with Professor Stockbridge, farming and farm life were an inheritance with our 
good friend, and no better foundation can be found upon which to base the education 
of a teacher of agriculture. He was born in the historic old town of Hadley on the 
Connecticut, in that fertile section between Mount Holyoke and the river known as 
Hockanum, which, when his ancestors first settled there, was the landing place for the 
ferry used by the residents of Northampton and the surrounding regions when they 
traveled to Springfield and the towns "down the river". He still lives on a farm, 
studying his fields and his cattle. 

Mr. Thayer's first teaching at M. S. C. was during the Winter Schools of 1915 
and 1916 as an assistant to Sidney B. Haskell, then Professor of Agronomy. He began 
teaching in the Stockbridge School in January, 1919, just three months after the school 
was established, and ever since, his interest and helpfulness, both in and out of the 
classroom, have been known to all. As a member of the Faculty Advisory Committee 
he has always been interested in helping the practical fellow, who loves the doing, but 
finds the theory a bit difficult. His reading covers a wide range; he delights in early 
Americana, and lives in an old colonial house among his books and his antiques; 
literature, as well as the sciences come within the range of his interest and add to his 
sympathy and effectiveness as a teacher. 

The Staff know "Charlie" best as an enthusiastic member of Metawampe, the 
faculty hiking club, and as one who is always ready to help, whether it be in clearing 
trails or planning a trip to a nearby or distant peak. He is also a disciple of Isaac 
Walton and knows the haunts of the "spotted beauties" within a wide range of the 

In the words of Rip Van Winkle, "may he live long and prosper" so that his 
knowledge and helpfulness may be available to many classes yet to come to the 
Massachusetts State College.

■yvyHATEVER success this book may attain has been made 
possible only through the coopetation of the many 
friends who have assisted in its creation. To these 
persons the Editorial Board wishes to express its sincere 

We especially wish to thank Professor Rollin H. Barrett, 
faculty advisor, for his optimism and timely advice, during 
the critical periods of editing.

A McBBage ftnm to }prF0ibptit 

Though I have had but little opportunity to get acquainted with the men and 
women of the Stockbridge School since I came to the College in February, I have given 
you and your work more thought than you appreciate. The principal reason for this 
is that at the time I took my college work at the Michigan Agricultural College, and 
most of that work was taken before 1900, the courses which I took and the practical 
experience which I was required to go through were quite like the work which you are 
getting in the Stockbridge School. There is still another reason why I have been greatly 
interested in you and your work, and that is my very keen interest in and real concern 
over the land utilization problem in Massachusetts. 

Your Senior Class will soon be leaving the School and I regret greatly that it isn't 
going to be possible for me to come to know very many of you before graduation. 
I hope, however, that as you get out into practical work here in the State, I may come 
to know many of you. I shall always be interested in meeting you men and women 
from the Stockbridge School as I get about in different sections of the State. 

The land utilization problem in Massachusetts presents many rather difficult angles 
though the problem is probably no more difficult here than in the other New England 
states and in the Lake States to the westward. The most significant phase of the use 
of land in Massachusetts through the years has been the continuing abandonment of 
our farms. In 1880 approximately 41% of our land area was in farms while in 1930 
but l4fo was indicated as farms in operation. In other words, during the past fifty 
years more than one million and a half acres of the land in this State have gone out of 
use for farming. We cannot say that this entire acreage is abandoned land because a 
certain proportion of it has been absorbed by our developing cities. Really a very 
large amount of land in the State has been taken up with suburbs about various urban 
centers. How far this abandonment of farm land will go it is difficult to say. It is 
my personal opinion it will proceed more slowly from this time on. 

Including lands formerly farmed and lands that have always been in woodland, 
nearly 65% of the land area of the State is today better suited to the growing of forests 
than any other crop from the soil. Even so, there are still twenty-five thousand 
productive farms with perhaps twice as many smaller pieces of land which are farmed 
on a part-time basis largely by those who are employed in our industries or in other 
activities in our urban districts. Not only has there been great change in the acreage 
of land under the plow in Massachusetts but there have been marked changes in methods 
of farming, types of crops produced and in farm life. Farming as a satisfactory mode 
of life has unfortunately given way to farming on an income producing- or profit basis 


only. This change has brought, of course, a change in the character of crops produced 
so that today our principal production is milk, fruit and vegetables, poultry and nursery 
and greenhouse products. Wherever these particular crops can be produced under 
scientific management, and with a close tie-up with markets in congested centers of 
population, there has been and will continue to be very satisfactory results secured. 

With recognition of proper balance between production and markets and with the 
application of the sensible use of such scientific knowledge as you men and women of 
the Stockbridge School have acquired at the College, agriculture on right soils will 
continue a good business in Massachusetts. Your work in Stockbridge has given you 
a splendid foundation upon which to build for the future. As you go ahead with 
the erection of a superstructure, on the foundation gained here, I hope that you will 
continue to keep in close touch with the College that we may be constantly helpful in 
making this superstructure the kind of a building you want it to be. In other words, 
we want to keep in touch with you when you go out and we believe we can be of help 
to you through conference and suggestions wherever your work may take you.

The work in jood preservation begun by Doris Feltham in 1931 and con- 
tinued by Jane Way in 1932 is, I feel sure, destined to develop into something 
of great benefit to that whole Coast. Enough has already been done at 
St. Anthony by Doris and Jane to help that little community wonderfully, and 
other villages will follow. 

It is difficult for us to realize, with food as plentiful as it is here, what 
this problem is in Newfoundland and Labrador. The food program is pitifully 
meager at best in most families, sometimes desperately so, and the addition of 
some fine canned fish, fruits and vegetables is a wonderful blessing. The 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture should be proud to have had so important 
a part in starting this fine work. Fred C. Sears. 

Since a little child I can remember reading about Dr. Grenfell, now knighted by 
the King of England, Sir Wilfred Grenfell, and his wonderful work among the Labrador 
fisherfolk but little did I dream that I should ever have a part in it. For several years. 
Professor Sears of our own Massachusetts State College Pomology Department has been 
up on the coast experimenting to see what, if any, fruits and vegetables could be grown 
in that country where the native people live almost entirely on a diet of dried codfish 
and tea, bread and molasses. In 1930 Professor Chenoweth went up with Professor 
Sears for the summer and became interested in possibilities for food preservation work, 
even with the few native products such as salmon and berries and looking to the future 
when there will be more gardens yielding fresh fruit and vegetables due to Professor 
Sears' extensive work. It was my good fortune to be chosen to go up in the spring of 
1931 and try to start this work along the coast of North Newfoundland and Labrador. 

The trip up, with a nurse going to work at the base hospital in St. Anthony, was 
one of the many interesting experiences of the summer. We left Boston by train going 
out to North Sydney on the tip of Cape Breton Island — from there across Cabot Strait 
by boat — then about half way across the island of Newfoundland on a little narrow 
gauge railway — out to the coast by motor and from there north on the government mail 
boat. The last part of the trip up the coast was most interesting, visiting every little 
settlement where the mail boat every two weeks in the summer brings the only contact 
with the outside world, and encountering huge ice-bergs and the typical sub-arctic fog 
and wind. After a ten-day trip we finally reached St. Anthony, the base of the mission 
work where I was to carry on most of my summer's work. 

Our first venture in St. Anthony was to can salmon, as the natives had never known 
any way to keep that particular fish, because they do not salt and dry it as they do 
cod and therefore had been having it for food only during the short season that it runs 
in the water around there — generally only the month of June. We set up our can 
sealers (as we were to do this in tin cans), and pressure cookers in a little kitchen in 
the school where there was a wood stove. About thirty-five women in all entered

the project and came in groups of six, morning and afternoon as well as one group 
of ten girls which I organized into a 4-H club. Each woman brought her own salmon 
all cleaned, which saved much time and work in our limited quarters. The women 
learned surprisingly fast and were so keen about it all that it certainly was gratifying 
to work with them. Two groups of women came from across the harbor and rowed 
themselves across or on days when the weather was too bad for that, they walked two 
miles through mud and mire around to the "Mission" with salmon in hand! They 
considered it fun instead of work and they are the ones who know hard work. Besides 
the actual canning of salmon being so new, women getting out of their homes and 
working together in groups was such a change that no wonder it seemed fun having 
someone to talk with while they worked. Some of them were a little shy at first but 
soon got over it and we had loads of fun, — of course I enjoyed hearing them tell of 
their problems and stories of many bitter tragedies from getting their living out of 
the sea. 

Unfortunately it was a poor salmon season and there were a good many days when 
there wasn't a salmon to be had, but by the early part of July we had about 750 tins 
of salmon done and enough enthusiasm stirred up to can anything possible the rest of 
the summer. The women wanted to can everything they could think of and I fully 
expected to be "tinning" icebergs before I came home! Early in July when the salmon 
were practically gone around St. Anthony, I went about three hundred miles further 
north across the Straits of Belle Isle and up the even more bleak, rocky, and rugged 
Labrador coast to Cartwright, a little settlement of about a hundred people in the 
winter, but in the summer most of those were out fishing. Being further north than 
St. Anthony the salmon were still running in the waters there so I got the women in 
the town, (numbering six in all as the rest were out helping the men at the fishing 
stages) and in the basement of the school with only what equipment I had taken with 
me and a tiny little wood stove we started canning salmon. These women were quite 
as keen as those in St. Anthony and working under difficulties with limited room, no 
running water and only the tiny wood stove, we soon had about 250 cans of salmon 
done when they began to get pretty scarce. This was only a start here but the women 
were anxious to go on another year and were going to experiment with berries later in 
the season as I had to go back to St. Anthony where there was the larger group to 
work with and more to be done. 

With Professor Sears' work of the last few years proving that a few vegetables 
will grow in the short summer season, there were more gardens this year than ever 
and several of the women had greens they could can. I was anxious that they learn 
to use glass jars for canning in their own homes as the use of tin cans with the special 
equipment for sealing had necessitated their going where it was. For the next two 
weeks or so I went out into various homes and helped the women can greens or rhubarb 


and whatever they might have in their little gardens. As the few berries came on we 
canned those and made jams and jellies so the women learned to use what they had 
in their homes to do with. They have very fine blueberries and two other berries very 
different from anything we have, squashberry which makes a delicious jelly but not 
good for much else as they are very seedy; and something they call "baycapple" which 
resembles a blackberry in type but is an orange color and has a flavor very different 
from anything I have ever tasted. The people are very fond of them and they do make 
a delicious jam and are good canned in a syrup. We worked out many pleasing 
combinations of these fruits for jams and jellies and the women volunteered their services 
to can berries and make jams and jellies in large quantity for the hospital and orphanage. 
We even canned a cow! — the Mission has a small herd of cows trying to get milk 
enough for the hospital and orphanage and Dr. Curtis was planning to have 
Dr. Grenfell's first cow "Mollie" killed so he asked if we couldn't can it — the result 
was several hundred cans of beef, roasts and stews which will be a pleasant variety 
from codfish in the winter. 

Just before I left in September we had an exhibit of our work along with garden 
produce and it was gratifying to see what the women had really done and those who 
had not tried it this year decided after seeing what could be done to try it the next year. 

The salmon work will mean much, we hope, in the future for variety in food, but 
the fruit and vegetable preservation will mean most, for it is that type of food lacking 
in their diet which is responsible for so many of the terrible deficiency diseases. 

It hardly seems possible that four months could have gone by so swiftly and to 
me the most gratifying thing was the fact that the Mission sent down with me when I 
came home, a native girl who studied under Professor Chenoweth last year and went 
back last summer to carry on with her own people the work which I had so much 
enjoyed starting and it was with much joy that I learned that the work increased more 
than five-fold last summer and will be increased as the years go by. Working with 
those fine people of the Northland and the interest and support which they gave me 
will be one of the happiest memories in my life.

there was more to be had by living nearer so he took 
up his abode in the suburbs of the town. 

He is more quiet than the rest of the fellows in 
his division, but this is because he takes the work 
more seriously. He has earned the nick-name of 
"thermometer" due to his accurate work in some of

But he is a perfect example of how to get the most

Flori and seems to be picking up a little here and 

As a side line "Tony" used to wrestle with

"Cookie" has certainly brightened our stay here at 
Stockbridge and has well spent his time in the study 
of Animal Husbandry. 

He is quiet and does not bother anyone, though he 
may have visited the library frequently. We must 
admit that he is a true friend and a loyal companion, 
he has a big smile and a keen sense of humor. He 
is bound to succeed,for he is energetic, persistent and 
a clear thinker. We must look for him as being one 
of our best Animal Husbandry men. Best of luck

Vegetable Gardening. 

We wonder what makes the hit with the ladies. 
Oh! It is either his personality or his hair which is 
sort of blond in the summer and dark in the winter. 
It sure created a sensation down at the Abbey. 

Who on Campus has not seen "Joe" rushing here 
or rushing there' to do this or to do that? His in- 
tentions are good so he is excused. 

So long, "Joe", and don't get to worrying.

"Lew" is one of these fellows hard to get acquain-

have a pal. One of the reasons so few got to know 
him was because he worked for his room and board 
and so did not get into the "hash" house conferences. 
This shows that he is a hard worker and so we know 
he will go out of the "University" a success.

Needless to say, this gentleman from Conn, con-

However, Pearson and he were never separated ; 
women were probably distant thoughts. 

Studying was his mainstay, perhaps that's the reason 
for his frequent visits to the prof's office. We wonder 
if he never got his feet wet collecting material for

grasp and take advantage of in ill placed fun. You

"Mac" is 1933's gift (?) from Bridgeport. He is 
well known in Greenfield, Springfield, Hartford, 
Worcester, Mattapan and last but not least in the one

New England boy. 

"Mac", as chairman of the Initiation Committee, 
loved putting the freshmen through their paces, and 
even carried his restlessness to bed with him from 
all reports. 

Between the weaker sex and dairying, "Mac" has 
been and will be on the go, but will never be too 
busy to recall with enjoyment his pals from the well 
known Drokker Klub at the K. K.

There is undoubtedly a prominent place awaiting 
"Dick" in the Greenkeeping sphere. Coming from 
the vicinity of Boston where many of our prominent 
golf courses are located, "Dick" has had the oppor- 
tunity to study turf-growing methods and problems 
and, coupled with his own personal experiences, he 
should rise rapidly in the Greenkeeping vocation. 

Aside from studying Greenkeeping, however, 
"Dick" finds time for romance and we question the 
object of these week-end visits to Boston, but we 
dare say they are not for golf purposes. However, 
we look for big things from "Dick" in the future.

"Oh give me a home where Buffaloes roam." 

An easy going, carefree, humorous, educated, in- 
telligent, and honest gentleman. This is "Hank" or 
what have you. 

"Hank" has only taken one thing serious since 
being in the East, this being his downfall at the 
famous "Hash-house". It sent "Hank" back to 
Detroit, but he is now making up for his downfall 
by living on juices, raw meats, and "Dog Cart Food". 

We must confess that from the top of his head to 
the bottom of his feet he is every bit a man. "Wee".

Whenever our thoughts revert to Stockbridge, we 
will never fail to remember "Bob's" goodnatured grin, 
nor will we forget that he was a devotee of that 
unpopular indoor sport commonly known as studying. 

"Bob's" interest in agricultural matters is keen and 
he carries the earmarks of a successful farmer. 

Any advice to keep forcing ahead is needless, since 
"Bob" couldn't do otherwise. He knows the road 
and the two years here have given him the knowledge 
necessary to glide smoothly over the rough spots.

"Don", the third member of the Three Musketeers, 
and a typical Scotchman, is the lad from the Granite 
City. He is very quiet, idealistic, energetic, industri- 
ous and one who finds pleasure in listening to the 
radio and smoking a pipe. 

Bashfulness prevails when he is in company of the 
fair sex, but is not noticeable when it comes to exams 
for he is most always near the top and we wonder 
why, since he is found devouring "Arsene Lupin" 
and "Wild West". 

Here's hoping he succeeds not only at raising 
flowers, but also at his avocation of raising canines.

"Joe" is the star of our hockey team. When he

"Joe" is well known among his classmen and is 
sometimes referred to as "Smoothy". 

Speaking of mail, he sure does rate letters from 
some little maiden who has fallen for this dashing, 
handsome youth. He sometimes gets three a day, 
never less then two. 

We do not question "Joe's" physical strength. He 
is referred to as the love crusher. Ask O'Neil ! It 
takes "Jake", his roomate, to keep "Joe" calmed 

More power, "Joe".

IGnnking lark 

On the third of October, 1931, a large group of students from various and diverse 
points of the country entered the campus, where they hoped to poHsh, and in some 
cases harrow their minds. 

First of all we began to admire the architecture, the views and the upper classmen. 

We were tendered two banquets at Draper Hall where we met and heard members 
of the faculty and alumni speak. 

Class began, names called, books ordered, then came a week of confusion and a 
struggle for existence. After getting into the mode of collegiate atmosphere, we were 
then in stride. The confusion having disappeared, the plebes then elected the class 
officers. John Turner was elected president, Carl Frank was chosen as Jack's first 
lieutenant, Raymond Shulander was secretary and Barbara Desoe was elected to guard 
what there was of money. 

Remember those early morning trips to the "Hash-house" and the three "meals'" 
a day we had? 

Along came the hat rush. The march to the field, the hats on the 50 yard line, 
the gun, the battle, "the hat", the final shot of the pistol. What a time! 

The seniors gave us a dance in the Drill Hall which was soon returned in the 
"Mem" Building. 

March came 'round and it was time for us to leave the campus and friends, and 
sojurn to various places. Time to go out and do some manual labor in the line we 
liked so well. 

October soon came about with its call for us to return to the classrooms. Many 
familiar faces were missing because of the well known "depression", but there were 
several new ones. 

Elections for new officers to carry the class to its final post were, Henry Merrill, 
president, Robert Burrell, vice-president, Charles Bonnemort, secretary, and Lawrence 
Marston, treasurer. 

Then came our second victorious hat rush won against odds. 

Mountain day was revived in the fall of '32, and a trip was made to the top of 
Mt. Toby, where a good time was enjoyed by all. 

The freshmen were given a dance in the Drill Hall and the seniors were given 
one in return in the "Mem" Building. 

The curtain is falling on the stage of our Stockbridge days. The last bouquets 
are being flung over the foot-lights. The audience is giving its last applause. The 
curtain is drawn and we leave, with a tear in our eyes, a tear not pf sadness but regret. 
The last performance as a group is over but the show must go on. We shall not part 
or split asunder the ties that have bound us together with the knots of friendship of 
the past two years. We are bound together with a tie that can never be broken. We 
are alumni of Stockbridge. We have not said adieu, but au revoir. 

John Sullivan.

The class of '34 entered Stockbridge in October. Their goals were high but this 
means little to a group as fine and upright as these students who were starting their 
work at Stockbridge. The person we became acquainted with was Miss Martin of 
the short course office. When we first met her we did not realize that she would 
be the person to whom we would take all our difficulties that were to arise in the class 
or on the campus. 

Our first meeting with Miss Martin was on October third, the day we registered. 
It was a day of meetings and of making friends. A day never to be forgotten. "With 
registration and the receiving of our class schedules and freshman handbooks, our life 
at Stockbridge began. 

On the next day our classes began. There was much confusion and many questions 
asked. But we finally had our classrooms located and things began to run more 
smoothly. It didn't take long after this for the seniors to inform us that we were to 
wear the traditional blue caps with the large white buttons on top. These were also 
a means of the freshmen getting acquainted. The wearing of these caps was terminated 
by the hat rush, on the drill field, after our return from the Thanksgiving recess. 

Our first business was the election of temporary class officers. After becoming 
better acquainted we had a final election. Here we elected permanent class officers 
and student council members. We elected the following to represent the class of '34 
in this capacity; president, Steven Eldred; vice-president, Donald MacDonald, who 
later resigned. His place was taken by Edward Uhlman, elected at a special meeting 
of the freshman class. The secretary was Miss Mora Dunn. 

January fourteenth the freshmen gave a dance in honor of the seniors. It was to 
be given in the Memorial Building, but due to so much illness the Memorial Building 
was used as an infirmary. Consequently the dance was held in the drill hall. There 
were many other social activities in which the freshmen took prominent part. 

More freshmen received sweaters and letters for football than any other Stockbridge 
freshman class. Out of 124 enrolled students, 118 of which were men, twelve men 
received sweaters and letters. Two students were recommended to receive sweaters and 
letters and three were recommended to receive numerals in cross country. A large part 
of the basketball team and track team also consisted of freshmen. 

Our first year at Stockbridge was fast drawing to a close. We began to think of 
placement training, where we would have a chance at the practical work which takes 
the place of class and laboratory work. Poultry students were the first to go out on 
placement. They left as early as the first of March. The term ended March eighteenth 
with the rest of the freshmen leaving for placement, to return as seniors in the 
following fall.

With the opening of the Fall term the S. C. S. despite its small number began 
an enjoyable year. Four old members returned and five new members. 

There was a party in the fall at Miss Hamlin's. This was followed by a theater 
party. The last of October, the freshmen initiation was held and it proved fun for all. 

The winter term opened with a bang and continued with much fun. During this 
term new officers were elected for the coming year. The following officers were elected: 
President, Mora Dunn; vice-president, Alisoun Murry; secretary, Rosamond Patten; 
treasurer, Madeline Cannon; sergeant-at-arms, Charlotte Haartz. 

The annual S. C. S. banquet was held this year at the Davenport Inn with 
Miss Hamlin, the Sorority Advisor, as guest of honor. 

Thus ended the year 1932-33 for the S. C. S.

The house was reopened and occupied by the returning senior delegation October 3, 
1932. Preparations were immediately begun for the welcoming of the freshmen on 
Open House night October 7, 1932. The smoker went over with great success and 
pledges were sent out. 

The club held its annual initiation banquet at the Hotel Northampton on the 
evening of November 2. The greeting of the seniors was extended to the freshmen 
by John Turner to which Edward Machon responded for the initiates. We spent an 
interesting evening listening to the advice and stories of Professors Blundell, Lowry, 
Packard, C. Thayer, and last but not least, Professor Barrett. We extend our thanks 
to "Lee" Livermore and the rest of the banquet committee. 

We have had a good time at the house this year in the social part of our short 
stay here. We held a Halloween "Vic" party which was a great success. Our next 
social function was the talk of the campus for quite a while after it had taken place. 
It was our annual Fall dance which was formal this year. With our new floor and 
brilliant decorations, the house looked like a royal ballroom. To this great event's 
success we owe our thanks to "Connie" Bowen and his committee. We have held 
three more "Vic" dances since the formal dance. 

This year hasn't been all play for the fellows for we have been upholding the good 
work of our two preceeding classes. The class of '31, which was the first delegation 
to take possession of the house, did their part by furnishing the house with necessary 
furnishings. Last year's class, '32, did their part by putting in new walls and new 
floors downstairs. Our contribution to the betterment of the house is a new coat of 
paint on the outside, new walls in the second floor corridor, and both bathrooms re- 
painted. "Hank" Williams, who is our all around man, did himself justice when he 
remedied our den downstairs which put the finishing touches on the first floor. 

The new floor has been given the best of attention under the supervision of Turner 
who is chairman of the house committee and has kept the boys continually scrubbing, 
shellacing, and waxing the floor. He has also kept the boys busy doing other work 
about the house. 

We have enjoyed some of our Sunday evenings by having moving pictures of 
Europe which were given by "Hank" Williams and pictures of Stockbridge's football 
team in action at their most important games by Professor Barrett. 

Tuesday evening, March 7, the seniors gave the freshmen a farewell banquet at 
the Colonial Inn. An interesting evening was spent and again we were able to have 
Professors Smart, Grayson, Blundell, Ross, Glatfelter, C. Thayer, and Barrett with us. 

Election of next year's officers was held March 7 at the banquet and the following 
men were elected: President, Thomas F. Furze; vice-president, Chester E. Goodfield; 
secretary, Francis R. Sinervo; treasurer, William L. Pendergast; historian, J. Luis 
Zuretti; sergeant-at-arms, Edwin M. Ryder, and chairman house committee, Edward 
L. Uhlman. 

It is now time to leave although our two years together seems but a few months. 
The class of '33 has made its record in the history of Stockbridge and A. T. G. Soon 
our college days will be a thing of the past, but we shall never forget our good times 
at the house which means so much to us. Its contacts, the fellowship of being and 
living together, and the everlasting friendships we've made, all blend to give us the 
infiinite something that will always be with us and which we can never forget.

On October 2nd, twenty active members returned to the Kolony Klub for the 
beginning of a promising new year. We were now full-fledged seniors, all having 
successfully completed our placement training period of six months. 

Plans were soon made to welcome the freshmen on open house night, which was 
October 7. Our efforts were awarded with a full house, and many new acquaintances. 
Bids were immediately sent out and ten men accepted. 

Owing to the fact that we had just returned from placement, we all wanted to 
work. Everybody found something to do in the line of painting, washing, woodwork 
and giving the house a good cleaning in general. 

For social entertainment we held two "vie" dances, both of which were well 
attended and enjoyed by all. "Prof" night was held every other Sunday evening. 
These meetings brought closer contacts between the students and the "Profs" and were 
looked forward to as evenings of enjoyment. 

The winter term started off with a bang, led by our record rushing season. Of 
the bids sent out, fourteen men accepted and were initiated. Later in the term two 
more men joined the Klub and this terminated our rushing. 

Two "vie" dances were held, the latter being a Valentine dance, with appropriate 
decorations. These evenings were over, only to be remembered by all, and there was 
always a demand for more. 

The Farewell Banquet, which marked the last meeting with the freshmen members, 
was held at The Hotel Perry, March 2nd. This event was attended by Director Verbeck 
and 18 members of the faculty. Speakers, songs, and some presents for senior members, 
— a most enjoyable evening, and passed all too quickly. 

Along came the spring term and with it came the well known "Spring Fever". 
We were kept busy pruning bushes, and keeping the grounds about the house in order, 
to the satisfaaion of the "Hort" men. Two more "vie" dances were held, both being 
well attended and enjoyed, especially by several alumni, who returned to renew old 

Time passed quickly and commencement week was upon us. This week was 
opened by our formal house dance. We were kept "Swinging our Partners" into the 
wee hours of the morning by the music of an orchestra from Worcester. This was 
our final dance, and an evening long to be remembered. 

Commencement week soon passed and the time came for us to part. We are all 
going into different fields of work, but we will never forget the good times and sincere 
friendships that we have made at Kolony Klub. 

Now we say Adieu — with the best wishes for success and good fortune during 
the coming years.

Curry Hicks has been the leading hand in the development of Stockbridge athletics 
from nothing at all in the way of an athletic program to the well-rounded scheme of 
athletics and physical education now available to all Stockbridge students. I know what 
troubles and worries he has had in accomplishing this end, because I was the first coach 
chosen by Professor Hicks and Direaor Phelan to handle two-year athletic teams, as 
they were then called. 

The athletic program was inaugurated in the fall of 1919, and Professor Hicks 
started off with the three major sports, completely outfitting them and arranging for an 
outside schedule in football, basketball, and baseball. The first schedules were naturally 
rather short and games had to be scheduled with any high school, preparatory school, 
or college second team that would play us. Since that time Curry has added hockey, 
track, and cross country to that list of teams, as the demand has arisen, so that at the 
present time there is an opportunity for every Stockbridge student to take part in some 
form of athletics. Also, well organized courses in required physical education have 
been instituted, which compels all Stockbridge students to take part in some form of 
physical exercise during part of the school year. 

From my connections with athletics, both in the Stockbridge School and in the 
College, I know that Curry Hicks has always jealously guarded the interests of and 
taken care of the Stockbridge men to the best of his ability, and he has plenty ability. 
He is as square as they come, and is honest and fair in all his doings. Professor Hicks 
is a man of vision and dreams, and two of these major dreams he has made come true 
by his dogged persistence and hard work. I have reference to the Alumni Field and 
the new Physical Education Building, both of which are a monument to the spirit of 
the man. Without them, the Stockbridge students would lose many of the benefits and 
privileges they now enjoy in connection with their athletic program. 

The Stockbridge School should feel proud that they have such a man as Curry Hicks 
at the head of the physical education and athletic program.

ST. ANSELM'S 32— S. S. A. 

Stockbridge opened its 1932 football season with St. Anselm's Prep. School on 
October 15, at the Alumni field. 

Early in the game the Prep. School boys showed their superiority by making various 
gains thru the lighter Stockbridge line. The first half ended 6 — in favor of St. 
Anselm's. The score resulted from a long pass to the Stockbridge two yard line. 
From the beginning of the second half on, the overwhelming weight and aggressiveness 
of the visitors began to wear the home boys down. As a result the visitors got two 
touchdowns as the period came to an end. The final score was 32 — 0. "Captain" 
Martin, O'Conner, and Prescott excelled for Stockbridge. 


The following week Stockbridge journeyed to Williston to tackle the Academy boys 
there. During the first half the "Aggies" fought well, carrying the ball to WiUiston's 
five yard line, but lacked the push to make the score. Williston managed to cross the 
Stockbridge goal line just before the half ended, making the score 6 — at the half. 
The superiority of Williston began to show in the last period by crossing the Stockbridge 
goal line twice. The final score ended 19 — in WiUiston's favor. 

Foulsham, Jaeger, and Prescott were the outstanding players of the afternoon. 




N. F. S. 31— S. S. A. 12 

On October 29th Stockbridge traveled to Philadelphia to meet the highly rated 
National Farm School team. 

As the game opened the boys from Mass. gained the upper hand and found their 
stride. A long pass, Prescott to Jaeger, resulted in a touchdown for Stockbridge. Just 
before the half ended the Penn. boys put the pig skin across the Stockbridge line, thus 
the half ended 6 — 6. 

In the opening minutes of the second half the Farm School scored again. On 
the following kickofl "Al" Jaeger trampled 85 yards for a sensational touch down. 
The weight and power of the Pennsylvanians began to show in the last period as 
the Farm School made three more scores. The game ending 32 — 12. 

Although the boys from Stockbridge lost by score, in spirit they carried the victory. 
They had the satisfaction of being the first team to score more than one touchdown 
against their opponents in 10 years. 

The entire team played fine, clean football. 


CONN. 20— S. S. A. 6 
On November 4th the squad enjoyed a fine trip to Storrs, Conn., where they played 
their old rivals, Conn. Aggie Freshmen. The "Nutmegger's" scored twice before the 
"Baystater's" began to show signs of life. Stockbridge soon began a drive from her 
own twenty yard line, which ended in a touchdown. By virtue of a long forward, 
Prescott to Jaeger, the ball was brought to the Conn, twelve yard line. A few plays 
later Jaeger circled the end for a touchdown. Stockbridge fought determinedly on 
several thrusts to hold the "Frosh", but the "Nutmegger's proved too powerful for 
them. Many replacements were made throughout the game. The game ended with 
Stockbridge in possession of the ball on Connecticut's seventeen yard line. 

ESSEX 0— S. S. A. 7 

A long-looked-for tussle with Essex Co. Agri. School was brought to a close on 
November 11th at the Alumni field. 

The first half of the game was scoreless with neither team gaining nor giving 
ground. The morale of our boys was broken on several occasions due to injuries to 
players. In the last few minutes of play Stockbridge opened up with a long forward 
pass, Prescott to Zuretti, which gave the boys the needed fight. Two more passes, 
Prescott to Eldred, and Prescott to Jaeger, resulted in a touchdown for the home boys. 
Eldred scored the point after the touchdown, using the old dependable wedge. 

From Springfield College the "Frosh" came on November 18th in hopes of 
averaging last year's defeat. 

During the first period both teams played good scrappy football. In the second 
quarter Springfield placed the pig skin across the Aggie goal line for the first score 
of the afternoon. During the second half the Springfield boys could not be denied, 
and managed to score two more touchdowns. The excellent running by Little of 
Springfield was the feature of the afternoon. 


DEERFIELD 41— S. S. A. 7 

On November 22nd Stockbridge traveled to Deerfield to fall at the hands of 
a strong Academy eleven. 

The opening break came when Bay of Deerfield ran thru the Aggie line forty-six 
yards for the first score of the game. A determined march by Stockbridge, as the first 
quarter ended, brought the pigskin to the twelve yard line, where it was lost on downs. 
Due to the overpowering weight and speed the Academy boys ran up quite a score. 

The defence work of "Spider" Turner and Captain Martin was commendable, while 
the constant running by Jaeger gave Deerfield plenty to think about. The pass, Prescott 
to Zuretti, in the last quarter brought the ball to the two yard line. On the next play 
Jaeger slid off tackle for the lone touchdown while Eldred gained the extra point. 

The student body was treated very cordially, refreshments being served after the 
game by the Deerfield students. 

The football season of 1932 was fairly successful in spite of the fact that out of 
seven games one was won and six lost. Coach Ball's expectations of a good team this 
year were not fulfilled because of the fact that most of last year's regulars did not return 
to the squad. 

Letters were awarded to twenty-five men: Class of '33 — Captain, John Martin, 
Waquoit; Alfred Jaeger, Newark, N. J.; Anthony Castro, Taunton; Stanley Doskotz, 
Amherst ; Charles Foulsham, Bethlehem, Pa. ; John Gallagher, Middleboro ; Frank Hahn, 
Holyoke; Leland Livermore, Ludlow; George Mueller, Holyoke; Herbert Riley, Tyngs- 
borough; John Turner, Springfield; Raymond Shulander, Chicago, 111.; and Manager, 
Chilton Hastings of Lynnfield Centre. Class of '34 — Austin Childs, Worcester; Charles 
Dondero, Amesbury; Stephen Eldred, Weston; Edward Erlandson, Roslindale; Roger 
Hersey, Hingham; Thomas O'Connor, Maiden; Franklin Prescott, Concord; Edwin 
Ryder, Middleboro ; Francis Sinervo, Gardner ; Luis Zuretti, Lexington ; Edward Uhlman, 
Westboro, and Russell Wood of Westport. 

Luis Zuretti was elected captain for next season. 




(EroHfi (Enuiitr^ 

With only two letter men available at the start of the season, it looked rather 
gloomy for the Stockbridge "Cross-Country" team, but the freshmen class turned out 
some promising men that brightened up matters considerably. 

On November 2nd the Stockbridge team traveled to Pratt field to open the season 
with the Amherst College freshmen. The final score being 29 — 10 in favor of 

Next Stockbridge met the Amherst College Javees. Pearson and Pendergast tied 
for first place. The final score was 30 — 10 in favor of Stockbridge. 

For its final meet the Stockbridge team took part in a five sided affair between 
the Amherst "Frosh" and "J. V's", the Mass. State "Frosh" and "Jr. V's" and Stock- 
bridge. Although the Mass. State "Frosh" won the meet, Stockbridge not only finished 
in second place, but Pearson and Pendergast finished first and second respectively to 
lead the runners home. 

At the conclusion of the season the Stockbridge athletic board voted to award 
letters and sweaters to the following men. Captain H. J. Pearson, '33; S. H. Hanson, '33; 
W. L. Pendergast, '34; L. H. Blackmer, '34, and to Manager Milton Swanson, '33. 

Numerals were awarded to L. S. Towne, '33, M. J. Rice, '34, and P. W. Chase, '34. 

The captain elect for next year is Pendergast who was the outstanding freshman 
of the squad. 



The interest which has been shown in track during the past year was again 
manifest. We had two outside meets in addition to the inter-class meet, all of which 
took place in the M. S. C. cage. 

The opening meet was with Mass. State Freshmen on February 15, l6, and 17. 
This proved an easy victory for Stockbridge who took first place in everything except 
the 350 yd. relay. Pearson appeared to be the leading star by individually scoring 
21 points, winning the 220 yd. dash, the 440 yd. dash, the 880 yd. run, and the mile. 
Pena, Goodfield, and Soden of the Freshman class came through, winning the 35 yd. 
dash, the broad-jump, and the high-jump respectively. 

The meet with Amherst Freshmen on March 9th proved to be a set back as Amherst 
came out on top with a 60 — 46 score. Pearson's running was again outstanding. He 
took first place in the 440 yd. dash, the 880 yd. run, and the mile. Pena and Goodfield 
added two more first places in the 35 yd. dash and the pole vault. 

On February 4th Pearson won second place in a handicap 1000 yd. run at the 
Boston Y. M. C. A. meet. He also competed in the special invitation 1000 yd. run 
at the Knights of Columbus meet on January 20th and B. A. C. meet on February 11th 
against such stars as BuUwinkle. 

The following men received letters: Pearson, '33, Jennings, '33, Goodfield, '34, 
Blackmer, '34, Pena, '34, and Soden, '34. 







The Stockbridge hoopsters opened their schedule on January 24th, with American 
International College of Springfield at the M. S. C. cage. Two foul shots by Slate of 
Springfield, in the last second of play, turned our 20 — 19 win into a 21 — 20 defeat. 
The game was fast and well played, and showed promise for a good team. 

AGAWAM HIGH 20— S. S. A. 21 
On January 27th, the Stockbridge quintet journeyed to Agawam and took the highly 
rated Agawam High basketeers into camp, 21 — 20 in the most brilliant exhibition of 
basketball ever staged on the Agawam court. Regulation play ended 20 — 20, but in 
the overtime period Livermore's free try gave us the needed point. 

Hopkins Academy nosed out Stockbridge, 23 — 22, on January 30th, in the M. S. C. 
cage. Stockbridge took the lead from the start and led the Hadley boys 14 — 7, at 
the half-way mark. It looked like certain victory for Stockbridge, but in the last stanza 
a rally by the Hadley boys changed the tide, and Hopkins emerged by one point. 


PALMER HIGH 12— S. S. A. 30 
Putting on a fine exhibition of passing and team work, Stockbridge turned back 
Palmer High, 30 — 12, in the M. S. C. cage, on February 2nd. Hagelberg led in the 
scoring while the floor work of Craig and Shulander was outstanding. 
TURNERS FALLS H. S. 37— S. S. A. 15 
From Turners Falls came the valley's leading high school basketball team on 
February 6th, which gave Stockbridge its first real set back of the season. Turners 
started off sinking baskets from all angles of the floor and continued throughout. 
Donaher and Williams both played an outstanding game for Stockbridge. 
On February 7th, Stockbridge had no difficulty in trouncing New Salem Academy 
in the M. S. C. cage. This game was more of a work out for Stockbridge, as the ball 
was kept zipping in their possession throughout. 

Stockbridge fell at the hands of a strong Williston five, in the M. S. C. cage, on 
February 11th. The Academy boys had things pretty well their own way during the 
first half with the constant scoring of MacDonald. Led by Livermore and Williams 
Stockbridge came back strong in the second half by out-scoring their opponents, but 
were unable to overcome the lead held by the Academy boys. 
Stockbridge received the severest set back of the season at the hands of Westfield 
H. S. on February l4th, in the M. S. C. cage. The game was snappy throughout with 
Westfield winning its 18th straight victory. 

On February 17th, Stockbridge enjoyed a fine trip to Hawthorne, where they 
played the Essex Aggie boys. Although Stockbridge proved to have the superior team, 
they were handicapped by an unusually slippery cement floor and low ceilings. 

Stockbridge fell an easy victim to the fighting Irish of St. Anselm's at Manchester, 
N. H., on February 18th. In the opening minutes of play the Aggie boys hit their 
stride and led the Granite State'ers, but soon began to get sloppy and St. Anselm's 
began to score rapidly. 

BELCHERTOWN H. S. 17— S. S. A. 42 
Stockbridge took Belchertown High into camp 42 — 17, before an exceedingly 
large crowd on February 20th, in the M. S. C. cage. The Aggies hit their stride at 
the very start and kept it throughout. Hagelberg led on the scoring for Stockbridge 
with a total of eleven field goals. 

AMHERST HIGH 16— S. S. A. 22 
Stockbridge defeated Amherst High, 22 — 16, in a very interesting game on 
February 21st, in the M. S. C. cage. Amherst led 12 — 6 at the half way mark, but 
in the last half Stockbridge opened up with some wonderful cutting and talented defence 
to come thru and win the final game of the season. 


The team was as follows: Captains, Foulsham and Shulander, r. g. ; Donaher and 
Uhlman, 1. g. ; Livermore and Uhlman, 1. f . ; Craig and Williams, r. f . ; Hagelberg and 
Williams, c. 





Sixteen men reported to coach Mitchell soon after the return from the Christmas 
vacation, four of these being veterans. 


The Stockbridge pucksters opened their season on January 13, with the Holyoke 
High sextet at the M. S. C. rink. The game was hard fought throughout with a 
scoreless tie at the end of the second period. Regulation play ended one to one, but 
the overtime period proved fatal for the Aggie boys, as Smith of the Paper City scored 
to make his team emerge victor. 


Stockbridge next traveled to Williston to face oil with the crack Williston six, 
but the Academy boys proved to be too much for the Stockbridge ice-men. This was a 
much better game than the score indicates. The Aggie boys lacked endurance, a result 
of their being on the ice but four times during the season. 


Sweaters were awarded to the following men: Burrell, Nyland, Hunt, Mansfield, 
Young, and Manager Crouse. 

A letter was awarded to John Martin, he having received his sweater last year 
in football.

This section of the hook is devoted to the employers of placement students ; 
to obtain their view of the students, how they fit into theii work and what is 
expected of them. We have had several articles and talks relative to placement 
training but this is the first opportunity the employer has had to express his 
point of view. The Editors. 


PRIOR to 1932, and the geneial slump in employ- 
ment occuring at that time, we were veiy glad 
to co-operate with the Massachusetts State College 
officials in the placement of students during the 
growing or summer season. The young men 
placed with us at various times turned out to be 
excellent employees in every respect, reflecting 
good general training methods, we thought, with- 
out being too theoretical to tie up nicely with 
every-day nursery practices. 

Possibly the viewpoint of the employer may be 
of some value to the young man looking forward to placement with a commercial 
concern. It is hardly necessary to point out that spring in the nursery is the busy 
period, commencing about April 1st and generally tapering off about mid- June. 
During this period there is little time available to either instruct or watch employees 
in matters of detail. It is obvious that the young man who can adapt himself to these 
conditions, carry out instructions without too much supervision, and generally use his 
head to advantage, is the man who will forge ahead. Neither should the student in 
placement training regard this employment as a position in which he will be taught 
horticulture. It is simply an opportunity to acquire knowledge. Employers as a rule 
are not apt to take a personal interest in the young man who is simply holding down 
a job, even if his work is satisfactory, but they are generally more than willing to help 
the fellow who shows that he wants to get ahead. Aside from taking a real interest 
in the work he happens to be doing, this interest is indicated in various ways, one of 
which is in never failing to ask questions. 

It goes without saying that the student is necessarily in competition with his fellow 
workmen, fine bright young chaps who, without special training, have made good head- 
way and are naturally handy in their work. He must not only work with them, but 
do so in a spirit of every-day good fellowship and harmony and be perfectly willing 
to turn to, regardless of the nature of the work in hand. During the midsummer period 
nursery work is more or less of a routine nature; nevertheless there is much of interest 
in it to the young fellow who wants to learn. At that time the transplanting of young 
perennials to growing quarters, and summer propagation, is under way. With this, 
there is also cultivation and weeding — perhaps the least interesting job of all — just 




plain monotony to the average boy, but the keen student will observe much of after 
value even at this sort of work, because there is an opportunity to study varieties in 
the early stages of development, and at the same time, make comparisons with the 
finished product. 

It goes without saying that the viewpoint of the youngster taking up horticulture 
as a life work, should be considered and from a rather broad viewpoint. Naturally, he 
should first of all have a liking for this work; nevertheless, I am not altogether in 
agreement with the dictum that a love for horticulture (and all that that implies) must 
be inherent. There are so many angles to horticulture that the youngster taking it up 
is apt to wonder at first just what it is all about. First of all, in taking up nursery 
work, he finds there are various departments probably not even connected, and numerous 
activities difficult to encompass at first. He is confronted with seemingly endless 
varieties, and perhaps finds plant identification extremely difficult and confusing at first. 
A lot of the work is necessarily monotonous, he cannot at first understand why the work 
is being done, and cannot see through the various operations. This understanding, 
however, comes with time, plant identification loses its difficulties, and with that under- 
standing a genuine liking for the work is very apt to develop in the young man who 
at the earlier stages could see little of the practical value of it. 

From this point on, earlier training asserts itself. The young man with the 
grammar school education would be better with high school training, and college 
training, even a short term, proves its worthiness, because with it develops a life long 
capacity to learn. It is true that in recent years the specialist in some particular branch 
is somewhat of a commercial custom, but it is a serious oversight for the student possibly 
headed towards a specialty, whether it be perennials, rock garden plants, evergreens, 
greenhouse plants, or any inidvidual major branch, to overlook any opportunity at all 
to broaden his knowledge in every line, because the time invariably comes when he 
should be able to at least talk intelligently on any garden material. The landscape 
architect is often called upon to discuss material that he never uses. The nurseryman 
who is reasonably familiar with greenhouse products, annuals, general cut flower material, 
and can impart useful advice on these subjects, naturally has a decided advantage over 
the man whose knowledge is limited to one branch. In other words, he should make 
it a point to absorb just as much knowledge in every branch as he possibly can. He 
will find it more than worth while. Whether it is of direct interest or not, do not 
overlook the importance of this. 

The boys we have had so far have proven altogether alert and satisfactory. We 
will be very happy to see the time when we can again have them with us during the 
summer season. 

Alex. Cummings, Jr. 





WHAT experience have you had, is one of the 
questions asked the man applying foi a 
position. I beheve Placement Ttaining is essential, 
as it affords the student the experience which is 
necessary. A knowledge of practical work is 
gained, and, to do work practically, is one of the 
important factors which enters into greenkeeping. 
To be successful in your work, one should have 
confidence in himself, and this, I believe, the 
student does acquire from Placement Training. 
The work in general, is discussed with him by his employer, which gives him an idea 
of the different phases of work, also enabling him to make suggestions which often 
prove helpful. 

There is construction, repairing of equipment, general routine of work, and super- 
vision of men, all of which he will experience some part of. One of our greatest 
problems to-day that must be carried out rigidly, is economy. Placement Training will 
afford the student opportunities to see how his course in managerial problems, and cost- 
keeping, will be of great value to him. 

After a season of Placement Training, he should be better fitted to solve some 
of the problems that confront him in his classes. It will also enable him to determine 
whether he cares to follow greenkeeping as his profession. 

Placing the student, I understand, is another problem which is met with such 
answers as, "I haven't time to bother with the boys". Haven't we the time, and, isn't 
it beneficial to the greenkeeper, to have young, intelligent students, who are willing to 
co-operate, with their new ideas fresh in mind? 

To many students, the money earned during their Placement Training has aided 
them in carrying on with their studies. The students that I have had association with 
have been intelligent, capable, and willing to work to the best of their knowledge, for 
the interest of all concerned.

Animal Ifuabattlirg 

ALTHOUGH we have had only two Stockbridge 
women here for placement training we have 
been so impressed with their sound and depend- 
able qualities that we feel there must be some sort 
of magic in the Stockbridge course and spirit. 

The most outstanding virtue of these student 
employees — it seems to a hard-pressed farm 
manager — was their adaptability. Our first place- 
ment girl, a floriculture major with little practical 
experience, willingly curried cows, put baby chicks 
to bed, and helped hold down the bacteria count. 
Our second, an animal husbandry major, in the same way, shouldered endless tanks 
of spray materials, helped keep up egg percentages, and did countless other jobs she 


had not studied in theory at college. In interviewing our prospective third, again a 
floriculture major, we were pleased to note the same eagerness to be of use, the same 
willingness to accept any sort of assignment that may come her way. 

Adaptability includes almost all other qualities that an employer demands in a 
worker — resourcefulness, cheerfulness, accuracy, application, energy, tactfulness, and 
finally efficiency. We are emphasizing this quality of adaptability because in the end, 
in our opinion, it is in learning to accept and conquer all sorts of situations, far more 
than in mere adherence to a prescribed course of training, that a good farmer and a 
good individual is made. Once sound work habits are acquired, and a wholesome 
attitude toward life's difficulties developed, the rest is easy, providing, of course, one 
has an instinct and liking for soil and livestock. 

Our two placement training girls had an abundance of personal charm, a quality 
that is an almost indispensable asset to the woman who aspires to be a farmer. It goes 
far toward mitigating the assumption that women farmers must of necessity be "hard 
boiled" and masculine. Personal charm does not mean beauty of face or figure, nor 
does it mean sex attraction. It is an inherent, intangible quality that routs antagonism, 
and helps dispel the antipathy that, very foolishly, still persists toward women engaged 
in agricultural pursuits. 

From the point of view of a busy farm manager, and especially one who must keep 
the therapeutic needs of problem children constantly in mind as we must here, the 
Stockbridge animal husbandry student is an ideal employee. With the incentive for 
making good that is instilled by the Stockbridge ideals, and the enthusiasm for agri- 
culture with which farming aspirants are naturally imbued, she makes a splendid all- 
around helper for animals, children, and soil. 

A woman farm manager meets with difficulties in attempting to control men 
workers. The man of even the most humble origin feels an instinctive antipathy toward 
any woman engaged in a profession he feels a woman has no business in. The Stock- 
bridge girl is a great antidote to this discomfiting situation. A woman employer may 
have the frank and open and uninhibited business relations with the college girl that 
is not possible with men laborers. Again, the college trained girl has an understanding 
of hygiene and the S(iientific aspects of farming that the average farm hand fails to 
grasp. Her eagerness for opportunities to put her theoretical training into practice and 
her zest for the work make our whole farm organization more interesting and delightful 
for everybody concerned. 

It is regrettable that the dearth of opportunities for women in animal husbandry 
is tending to discourage agriculturally minded girls from entering the An. Hus. course. 
Women are so ideally endowed for work with livestock, and working with animals 
and soil is such a complete and satisfactory way of life, that it is a great pity the trend 
is away from, rather than toward, this fascinating occupation. 

I hope that more girls entering the Stockbridge School of Agriculture will have 
the courage to take up animal husbandry, to face the difficulties, and despite all antipathies 
and obstacles, to win for themselves a place in the grandest of all professions. 

Take it from an old-timer: it's worth the struggle!

Farm Manager,

A s an employer of graduates of the two year 
I I -^i- course in Agriculture at the Massachusetts 

III I State College I want to say that practically all 

III I the students who have come under our observa- 

111 I tion or whom we have employed during the past 

III II seven or eight years have been satisfactory. 

I ^^A^^^L ^^^^ I I Like in all other walks of life the students who 
I ^^^^^^^^B^^^^^^^^^ I ^^^e worked the hardest or we might say who 
I ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^l^l have placed their work first before outside amuse- 
■^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^■l meats, etc., have made the best employees and 
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^" we have considered it a pleasure to recommend 
these students when the opportunity has presented itself. During the past eight years 
we have had fifteen students. 

Where it has been possible we have tried to give these students an opportunity 
to gain as much practical experience as possible during their stay with this Company. 
We have allowed them to work in both the Ice Cream and Dairy Departments. We 
have found them willing to do any work assigned and never complaining if they were 
obliged to work overtime during the rush season. 

We have found that the employment of the two year students has worked well in 
our plan of operation. The students coming to us about March 1st and leaving about 
Oaoberlst. This is the period when we need extra help. Our slackest period of the 
year being from October 1st to April 1st. 

At the present time two of the pivot men of this Company, the plant superintendent 
and the man in charge of the Ice Cream Department, are former students from the two 
year course of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

We know of other students who were employed by this Company during the time 
that they were enrolled as students at M. S. C. who are now occupying good positions 
in the Dairy and Ice Cream field. 

We can not say perhaps that the work of all students was one hundred percent 
perfect but with hardly an exception the services rendered this Company were most 

The young man who takes the two year Agricultural Course and pays strict attention 
to his studies and work can make a success of himself. There is no question, however, 
that a man who takes the four year course, gives the proper attention and time to his 
studies has something that no one can take from him. For a student who does not 
care to teach or do other similar work but desires to enter our field or go directly back 
to farming, he can do so by taking the two-year course in Agriculture. When he 
finishes and starts in his life work it is absolutely up to him as to how far he will go. 
I know some of the leaders in our line of work whose only technical training was a 
two year course in Agriculture at one of our State Colleges. 

We expect the student when he comes to this Company to work to step into his 
place with the other employees and do his part. We show no favoritism and on the 
other hand we do our utmost to be certain that each student has a fair opportunity to 
display his worth and make good.

Though many difficulties were encountered during the fall term due to the attitude 
of a few individuals, the 1933 Student Council finished the year quite successfully. 

As is customary the Senior Council members conducted the first two Freshman 
class meetings. At the first one the Freshman were instructed on the matter of campus 
rules and conduct and temporary class officers were elected. The Council also conducted 
the first Senior class meeting for the purpose of the election of the new officers. 

The customary hat-rush was carried out under the supervision of the Council and 
was a great success. 

The good-will of both classes, which is very essential to its successful operation, 
was very much appreciated by the Council and we of the Council sincerely hope that 
this good-will and fine spirit will continue with our successors.

Towne, on the meats trip, rushed up 
to a turnstile in Lechmere Square and 
tried to push through it but it did not 
move so tried another and this did not 
move. To his embarassment, he looked 
down and saw a sign "Drop Dime 
Here". One conductor looked at another 
and remarked, "I'll bet he's from Ver- 

To Joseph Haney 
My Hudson 'tis of thee 
Short cut to poverty 
Of thee I chant 
I spent a pile of dough 
On you two months ago 
But still you refuse to go 
You damned old junk.

Hank Williams and Prof. Barrett did what they could during the year to stimulate 
business. According to some students, Hank had to do something drastic to pass the 
Farm Management course. He discovered by accident that Prof, had a weakness for 
good cigars so Hank made the most of it by furnishing the smokes for Prof. Even on 
the New York trip Hank had to write Prof, for advice regarding what kind of cigars 
to buy. A copy of this letter follows: 

Dear Sir: — 

I would like your advice on some cigars I intend to purchase. I find that I can 
buy cigars at $.35 each or buying in quantities I can get them at 4 for $1. I can also 
purchase some at $.65 each; in quantity at 2 for $1. 

From the Farm Management point of view which do you advise buying? 

Yours truly, 
H.P.W./A.S. (Signed) Henry P. Williams, Jr. 

(Note the Farm Management reference in the letter.) 

Of course Prof, had to supply Hank with the information which would help him 
make the decision so he sent the following telegram: 

Prof. Henry P. Williams, Jr. 
Hotel Wellington, 
New York City. 

Farm Management Department advises use own judgment in cigar purchases. 

(Page Prof. Henry P. Williams, Jr.) 

Naturally, Hank was very grateful for the important information so acknowledged 
the receipt of the telegram as follows: 



Dear Sir: — 

Thanking you for your information and immediate reply in regard to the cigar 
situation, I am acting as you advised. 

Owing to the faa of poor weather conditions Lot B has dropped twenty points; 
so am purchasing the more expensive commodity as they are of far superior quality. 

Thanking you again for your immediate reply and advice, I remain, 

Yours truly, 
Hank/Red Henry P. Williams, Jr. 

At the first class in Farm Management after the New York trip Hank presented 
Prof, with some real (?) cigars. Some of us wonder just which grade Hank bought. 

About a month later, Hank went to Boston on a marketing trip. Still desiring 
to help out the general situation he sent the following night letter to Prof.: 

Boston, Mass., Feb. 27. 
Rollin H. Barrett, 
Mass. State College, Amherst, Mass. 

Tobaccos have fallen off twenty points. Squires are showing signs of great 
gain. Should advise sale of your former stock and purchasing squires. Please advise 
me what I am to do in regard to your securities. 

Henry P. Williams, Jr. 

According to the best information obtainable this night letter got the people in 
the telegraph office all excited. Here was a real hot tip on securities! No one knows 
the far reaching affects this had on business! 

A few days later Prof, was in Boston and sent Hank the following telegram: 

Henry P. Williams, Jr. 

A. T. G. Fraternity, 

M. S. C. Amherst, Mass. 

Upon careful investigation find you were badly mistaken regarding my tobacco 


More excitement in the telegraph office. Prof, says his sister was all excited when 
she heard him telephoning the above telegram to the telegraph office. 

Prof, claims that Hank owes him $24.27 and Hank claims that Prof, owes him 
$26.80. So Hank still has a balance due him of $2.53. We have heard all sorts 
of arguments over these finances, but evidently the account was not settled when 
The Shorthorn went to press for we heard Prof, remark that he couldn't pay now 
that his salary had been cut. Hank's parting shot was, "I should worry, I passed 
Farm Management."
