We present this Book with the hope that in years to 
come it will recall pleasant thoughts, familiar faces, and 
fond remembrances of campus life. If it does, then our 
work has not been in vain. 

The Editors. 



To Dr. Ralph W. Phillips, in appreciation 
of the enthusiasm he has shown in directing 
our studies under him ; of the interest he has 
taken in our social life ; and of the thorough- 
ness with which he executes his own work, 
thereby inspiring us to greater effort, do we, 
the Class of 1935, gladly dedicate this book. 



The subject of this brief appreciation 
escaped from the wilds of West Virginia, 
where he first saw the hght of day, to attend 
Berea College in Kentucky. Graduation from 
Berea in 1930 was followed by three years 
work as Research Assistant in Animal Hus- 
bandry at the University of Missouri and 
the winning of a Master's and a Doctor's 

In the short space of two years as instructor 
in the Animal Husbandry Department at 
M.S.C. he has made an enviable place for 
Jiimself in the hearts of Stockbridge students. 
A broad grasp of fundamental, biological 
principles coupled with an ability to portray 
their practical applications in an interesting 
manner, has made him one of the most ef- 
fective and popular teachers on campus. His 
rather quiet reserve quickly inspires confi- 
dence but at the same time discourages a too 
facile familiarity. The longer he is known 
the better is he liked, and this mainly be- 
cause of his genuinely fine character and his 
thoroughgoing interest in the progress and 
achievements of his students. 

The Stockbridge class of 1935 honors 
itself in dedicating this year's Shorthorn to 
Dr. Ralph W. Phillips. 

Victor A. Rice. 



The map of the campus found on the end 
leaves of this book is an interesting creation 
drawn by J. Francis Cormier of the Class of 
1926, Massachusetts State College. It origi- 
nally appeared in Professor Frank Prentice 
Rand's book "YESTERDAYS", a history of 
Massachusetts State College, published by the 
Associate Alumni in 1933. Permission to 
reproduce it was kindly given us by the 
Associate Alumni. 

We wish to express our gratitude to 
Mr. Sievers for his splendid article; to 
Mr. Vondell for three of his photographs, 
ie., Stockbridge Hall, Flint Laboratory, and 
the "Surveyor"; to the Short Course Office 
Staff for assisting at many details ; to Mr. C. 
A. Nichols of Chas. W. Burbank and Co., 
Printers, Miss Dorothy Cooper of the 
Howard-Wesson Co., Engravers, and Mr. 
Kinsman, Photographer, for their fine co- 
operation ; and to all members of the faculty 
who in any way assisted us. 

The Editors.

Roland Hale Verbeck, a graduate of Massa- 
chusetts State College in the class of 1908, 
returned to this campus in 1924 as the di- 
rector of Stockbridge School and related 
Short Courses. Under his guidance the 
Stockbridge School has grown until it now 
enjoys the reputation of being one of the 
very best two-year schools of agriculture in 
the country. Much of its success can be 
attributed to the careful planning and con- 
stant efforts of our Director.

After hearing our Experiment Station 
Director, Fred J. Sievers, speak on two oc- 
casions, we came to realize the keenness of 
his intellectual powers and to appreciate that 
his philosophy of life was no mere chance, 
but the result of a serious pondering and 
weighing of facts. We were deeply grateful 
when he consented to contribute the follow- 
ing article. While it deals primarily with 
the future of agriculture, we feel that it will 
prove to be a source of wisdom and inspira- 
tion to all who read it. 


Most of us are victims of circumstances in the selection of our life's work to 
the extent that it might be considered questionable whether a thorough study of the 
possibilities and futures of the several vocations and professions is of any significant 
value in determining or planning a career. 

Nevertheless, it is not uncommon to have laid before us by our educational insti- 
tutions or vocational guidance services, all of the advantages and disadvantages that 
different lines of endeavor present. Unfortunately, however, this subject is frequently 
discussed on only the economic or personal phases of one field as contrasted to another. 
This is unfortunate because in a democratic nation like ours where industrial adjustments 
are not particularly hindered through a lack of flexibility, it is certain that no one 
profession or vocation can long hold any position of economic advantage. If agriculture 
today should be more profitable than other industries its economic advantage would soon 
be recognized by a sufficient number of recruits to force it in line through increased 

The choice of a vocation or profession deserves the soundest foundation because 
nothing could be more disappointing than to prepare oneself for a certain career and 
then to find that during that period one's choice had lost all of its recognized advantages 
because of certain economic or social changes. If agriculture is to be selected as a 
vocation the choice should be based on something more definitely identified with the 
industry itself and naturally the question arises "What has agriculture to oflPer?" 

The most distressing condition in present day society is the decided unrest resulting 
from an apparent feeling that "we don't seem to know what we want and we won't be 



satisfied until we get it." Without doubt much of this attitude is a direct result of 
over emphasis on a certain type of speed or so-called efficiency in industry, which leaves 
most of us in a turmoil. There is no longer time nor encouragement for much meditation 
in this highly specialized mechanical age. The worker is required to become a very 
effective cog in an organization or system with which he has little or no intellectual 
identity. There is little incentive to think clearly and eventually no interest in thinking 
or philosophizing at all. 

When it is realized that most of the enjoyments in life result from our ability to 
measure accomplishments in terms of service it becomes somewhat distressing to find 
that present day so-called progress has given very little consideration to this factor. 
Agriculture is really the only large industry which has survived and still affords the 
individual worker some opportunity for self expression. The everyday occupation and 
experiences of the farmer, in their very nature, encourage not only meditation but sound 
and constructive thinking. His whole program is one of prospect. The farmer does 
not continually look behind him. He needs to depend upon the future to exactly the 
same extent that winter and spring require the summer for fruition. 

The greatest problem that a nation faces during a period of depression is the 
demoralization of its population and we are willing to follow mob leadership in direct 
proportion to our ability or opportunity to think independently. The farmer has been 
branded a poor cooperator. This is decidedly unfair because it is charging him with 
a limitation for no other reason than that he shows evidence of attempting to analyze 
his own problems and needs. Sheep can be herded quite easily but to be called a sheep 
is not particularly complimentary. 

I would recommend agriculture as a vocation for the opportunities it offers to 
experience the thrills of accomplishment and service. If this is sound now it will be 
even more justified in the future, because there is abundant evidence that an increasing 
portion of our population will need to find its compensations and satisfactions in these 
■ terms in the future. Agriculture in possessing these advantages should make a decided 
appeal to young men and women who are not willing to concede that success need be 
measured entirely in terms of economic wealth. If economics deserves to be designated 
as the dismal science, then agriculture certainly is the cheerful science.

"Chic" has a quiet yet possessing personality which reflects 
his gentlemanly character. And maybe not so quiet either 
because he is always playing good-natured jokes and tricks 
on his brothers. His most comfortable position, we think, 
is sitting cross-legged on the floor. May the light of the 
success he has already obtained and the respect he has won 
continue to shine on him.

There is not much doubt about who is the noisiest man 
in the class ; Dan's tall, lanky body must be all chest and 
lungs. But for all that, Dan is likeable, wholehearted, and 
never appears discouraged. He is a good athlete, playing

"Wes" was to be a wrestler but "Bobo" did him wrong 
so he gave it (his mass of muscles) up to Floriculture. 
They say that he comes from a football family and it looks 
to us as if that might be a hockey family too. "Wes" is a 
fine fellow to know, his smile clears the skies and brightens 
the day. May he always be able to smile for he deserves

"Binne" is one of our more reserved classmates, never- 
theless, everyone knows him. He may often be seen strolling 
around campus with a look of determination upon his face. 
It is this same determination that has made him an excellent 
fruit major and a good football and hockey player. He 
found that he could give all his attention to his work 
because Marlboro is quite a ways from Amherst.

A local boy makes good ! "Lu" is a chap liked by all 
of us, his fine character and generous nature have won our 
admiration and respect. "Lu's" contribution to the School's 
athletics was two years of good basketball playing. Our 
best wishes to a Connecticut Valley boy who has done him- 
self and the School credit.

"Mike" is an excellent athlete and he justly deserved 
the honor of being chosen Captain of Basketball. We are 
going to miss "Mickey's" ready smile and sunny disposition, 
and there won't be anyone to swallow the big yarns some 
of us like to tell. One word of advice to you, "Mike" ; don't 
believe everything that people tell you, learn to question 
what they say.

Always sneaking around corners to surprise you with his 
smile or to answer to "Hey, B-o-b-o", few realize the high 
standing "Bobo" has in his major or that he is one of the 
hard-working men at Alpha Tau Gamma. He has also 
done an excellent job of managing the basketball team. 
"Bobo" is one of those men who is sure to succeed because 
he is always willing to assume responsibility.

"Dick" is quite a gullible person and has believed many 
of our stories. He likes to dance, is very good natured and 
affable, the latter two attributes having won for him the 
title "Smiling Dick Broughton". He is a good friend to 
have because he goes out of his way to do things for people. 
We wish you good luck, "Dick".

Choose a Scotchman if you want a good friend. "Alec" 
will cheerfully do anything he possibly can for you, he also 
gives good advice just as cheerfully. "Alec's" chief enjoy- 
ment comes from smoking his pipe or good cigars, his 
favorite pastime is discussing the Freshman Bacteriology 
class with Professor Packard. We all hope with him that 
the dairy business will be forever good. 



Fred Nelson Garter 

Animal Husbandry Hanson 

1913. Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 

Fred transferred from M. S. C. to Stockbridge during the 
middle of last year. Apparently he was impatient to learn 
the fundamentals of animal husbandry. We had to make 
all the advances to become acquainted because of his re- 
served nature. When he speaks it is in a low quiet voice. 
Silent people are difficult to fathom; this is especially true 
with Fred.

. "Cass" is a born plugger; one who can and has taken it 
on the chin and grinned. The road was difficult at first, 
but he reached the peaks in scholastic attainment by sheer 
will power and work unending and has finished by sailing 
along with the breeze. He is a friend who can be depended 
upon everytime. Good luck! "Cass," may God speed you 
on your way, you have earned it.

An unassuming, studious and courteous person is Carl

"Silence is Golden". He won't brag about his track ac- 
complishments so it is up to us to do so. He was a speedy 
leader and inspired his brother trackmen to train faithfully 
in an attempt to keep up with him. Carl is also a musician, 
playing in the orchestra and practising at Kolony Klub.

"G. L." 
Animal Husbandry Williamsburs 

1913. The first of the Clark cousins. G. L. has always 
been a commuter and so we know less about him than 
those others who live on campus. Soon after Lawson 
entered Stockbridge, his father died and his attention has 
been divided between managing the farm and his studies. 
He left shortly after the first semester this year to give all 
of his attention to the farm. Incidentally we hear that he 
is engaged. 

Robert James Clark

1913. Alpha Tau Gamma; Vice-President, 2. Editor of 
Stockbridge News. Football, 1, 2. 

The junior member of the mirthful team, Clark and Ball, 
both "p-p-p-pretty good fellows". "Bob" hails from Con- 
necticut and like all good Connecticut Yankees, has a deep 
store of humor and wisdom. "Bob" is a news-hound and 
a bit of a jokester and oftimes embarrassing items appeared 
in his columns. But, when he was earnest, earnestness 
shone in his face like the sun.

1915. Agronomy Club, 1, 2; Secretary and Treasurer, 2.

The second of the Clark cousins. Another commuter so 
we don't know him too well either. The An. Hus. majors 
know "Russ" best and they will tell you that he can display 
a sort of dry, witty humor on occasion. He is a long way 
from being as serious as he appears. We have found him 
an agreeable companion and wish him every success. 



James Underwood Crockett 

Horticulture Haverhill 

1915. Alpha Tau Gamma. 

Few of us knew the real "Jim" in his first few months 
up here as he was a quiet, self-contained chap. But as the 
time went on his inimitable humor won many laughs. His 
favorite hobby is taking pictures of "Mac" and exposing 
them. We are sure that his good scholarship and willing- 
ness to uphold high ideals will win him great accomplish- 
ments someday. 

Darrell Frayne Cunningham

"Dick" is too modest. Everyone knows him but not as 
well as they should because he won't let them. He is a 
good athlete, an earnest student and has a genial personality. 
Did you ever hear him say, "Ken do you remember down at 
Broad Meadow?" Forget vour modesty a bit, "Dick", then 
you are bound to become someone. 

Henry Willard Davidson 

Animal Husbandry Longmeadow 

1912. Shorthorn Board, 2. Animal Husbandry Club,

"Dave" has an excellent scholastic record; it takes a real 
student to get the marks he did in Prof. Rice's course in 
Genetics. Apparently he was able to prepare his work with 
a minimum amount of effort for he seemed to have his 
good times on and off campus. "Dave" likes to tell about 
his Placement Training experiences and the fact that he 
stuck it out shows that he has plenty of grit. 



Francis Paul Dolan 

Pomology Brighton 

1912. Alpha Tau Gamma. Student Council, 1, and 
President, 2. Football, 1. Basketball, 1. Religious 

The congeniality and goodwill of this outspoken figure 
on campus are only surpassed by his ability to sleep thru 
class and still obtain the desired results. This may seem 
uncanny, yet, when you know Frank you realize his ability. 
He has been a leading figure in Student Council meetings 
and class activities. His wit and actions are unforgettable. 

Samuel Toby Douglas, Jr.

1913. Alpha Tau Gamma; President, 2. Student Coun- 
cil, 1, 2. 

"Dcmg" is a diligent student, a competent leader and his 
friendship is something well worthy having. "Doug" has 
put a lot of work into his studies and equally as much if 
not more into the life and welfare of Alpha Tau Gamma. 
He did surprise us once though, the time he told us that 
he was married. "Doug" will always be of service in this 
world because people look to men like him for leadership. 

Harrison Field

1909- Football, 1, 



"Harry" is one of the very best of students, having the 
ability to learn easily and quickly. His wit is unsurpassed 
on campus and it brings forth spontaneous laughter from his 
classmates. He likes to box, play football (doesn't consider 
a game worthwhile unless he acquires a black eye, a skinned 
nose and multiple bruises) and he loves horses. We'll 
remember him by his hair cut, his car, and occasional care- 
less use of speech. 



Elizabeth Vilera Flint 


Animal Husbandry Westhampton 

1915. S. C. S.; Vice-President and Sergeant-at-Arms, 2. 
This An. Hus. major feels sure that a Poultry course has 
no place in the curriculum of Animal Husbandry students. 
While she patiently candles eggs we know she would much 
rather be discussing horses with "Bob". "Lib" sees no 
reason why a girl can't be as good a farmer as a man and 
perhaps she will prove it. She had some good Placement 
Training experience last summer anyway. 

Malcolm Randall Fobes 


Horticulture Northampton 

1914. Alpha Tau Gamma. 

The man with the "Paul Whiteman" mustache. "Mac" 
is another one of those reserved individuals whom we seldom 
hear from. Although not socially inclined as far as col- 
lege activities are concerned, we can imagine all kinds of 
things, judging by his gentlemanly poise. The best of luck 
to you, "Mac".

Y. M. C. A. 

This boy, we think, knows more about pedigrees than 
his professors for he has a prodigious memory in this 
respect. If professors really do like to answer questions 
our guess is that "Doug" must have given them infinite 
satisfaction. He is an agressive sort of chap, ready to try 
anything. "Doug" should make a reputation for himself 
as a breeder of livestock.

"Mac", the smoothy of the class, is a man of high 
standing scholastically and stands equally well in the eyes 
of his classmates. He is admired not only on campus but 
also at Smith and Mt. Holyoke, so you see he really is a 
"much admired" person. "Mac", quick of mind and quick 
to act, will surely succeed in this world and we shouldn't 
be at all surprised to see someday, "Mac's Florist Shop".

Casting an eye North Amherst way we think a dust 
storm has arisen. But no, wait a minute, it is just Frank 
raising the dust while making a dash in to campus for classes. 
Frank is an unobtrusive person, yet is a man who is very 
good at sports. He is also good at argument.

Hello! who is the little fellow following the big fellows? 
It is none other than Shorty Hochstrasser, a short man so 
far as stature is concerned but a big man so far as work is 
concerned. "Shorty" has a pleasing personality to help him 
along and all in all we think that he can take care of him- 
self even though small.

Newport's contribution to our class. A tall, blond, good 
looking fellow who may be found in his trusty Ford car 
anywhere within a radius of a hundred miles of Amherst. 
"Al" was an outstanding goalie on the Hockey team for the 
two years and has contributed much to the Shorthorns, 
especially this one. His casual and indifferent attitude masks 
a keen mind which will put him on the top. "AI", what 
are you doing to-night? 

Gordon Nelson Holt 

Dairy Worcester 

1911. Did someone hear a laugh? Yes, someone did 
hear something, maybe you could call it a laugh. Yeah 
Gods ! who will ever forget Grid? He has had us in 
hysterics more than once. Gordon is full of surprises; 
in class he is serious, dignified, earnest and worried about 
his studies. But there is another side to him, on evenings 
when he turns playboy, he is gay, witty and rhythm fills 
his soul.

This little blondy went to market, — and did very well 
for herself. "Hi, Blondy" was the cry that was heard all 
over campus a year ago. In her Senior year, to keep dear 
her Freshman memories, she adopted a husband. "Hoppie's" 
pleasant personality and other likeable qualities have at- 
tracted the attention and respect of Stockbridge men. We 
think that she can hold her own in spite of her miniature

Merrill has an air of self-confidence which all of us 
envy. We don't mean by that that he is egotistical, in fact 
he is just the opposite. There is even a certain difference 
in the style of clothes he wears, a certain something that 
reflects his individualism. He possesses a soft, slow voice 
indicating that he thinks before he speaks. We wish 
"Dunny" the best of luck. 

Grace Arline Jacobs 

Animal Husbandry Dudley 

1912. S. C. S.; President, 2. Shorthorn Board, 2. 

Grace's interest and liking for horses and animals, we 
believe, led her to become an Animal Husbandry major. 
An. Hus. at times is rather difficult but Grace copes with 
the difficult situations in a masterful way. Her genial 
nature and willingness to tackle hard jobs are real assets. 
One of her secret delights was parking her car on campus 
daily without permission.

Vice-President, 1. Football, 1. Track, 1, Basketball, 2. 

This big wiry-haired person is always in somebody else's 
business, but that is because he always wants to help his 
friends. His main ambition seems to be to tell a bigger 
story than anyone else and to make more noise. He comes 
pretty close to realizing it, but don't take this wrong, 
"Johnny" is a hard worker and can tell you a lot of things 
about fruit growing.

"Blondie's" humourous and jocular mannerisms have made 
him well known on campus. He is a good scholar, always 
presenting neat and painstaking work and keeping his marks- 
up with the top notchers. "Al" was one of Coach Ball's 
mainstays on the football team last fall. He was great on 
offensive blocking, a bulwark on defense, and knew how to 
make spectacular tackles.

We admired him so much we made him President. 
"Herb's" character, pleasant personality and admirable 
leadership have won him many lasting friends. His conduct 
has always been such that it refleas credit on him. On 
the gridiron he showed an exuberant courage and keen 
ambition ; which brought him success and a broken bone in 
his hand. He will show it to you anytime.

"Mel's" ambition is to grow turf because of, rather than 
in spite of, the shades of Professor Dickinson's influence. 
"Mel" likes to dance and play basketball; both require good 
footwork. His appearance and neatness is so evident that 
we feel we must make mention of it. Size doesn't matter 
so much, "Mel", it is the ability to use one's brains that 
does. Grass will grow under your feet and that's a

If you hear a noise like a motor boat in the winter time, 
why, it's just "Mac" ; if it sounds like a cat light, it's "Mac" ; 
if it resembles an aeroplane, it's "Mac"; any peculiar noise, 
it's "Mac". His wise-cracks make even the professors grin. 
At taking pictures with his camera he is an artist while 
anything mechanical fascinates him. "Mac", it is great to 
work in the soil, but, we fear, you will too soon be under 
it unless you drive your car more carefully.

Has he or has he not a mustache.' It seems that during 
vacation New York shaved it off for him. 'We wish that 
"Mac" would take life more seriously and get over being 
bored with class procedure, for he has those qualities which 
portend a successful future. "Mac" is an artist of no mean 
ability, the work in this book furnishes proof of that; he 
also does good drawings in class.

1910. A politician is in our midst. Wherever "Ray" is, 
so also is there political argument. One minute he is a 
Democrat, the next a Socialist, and then a disciple of Huey 
Long, in short whatever the occasion calls for. Nor are all 
of his arguments unsound. However he knows his Dairy

Floriculture Greenfield 

1916. John has been a retiring and modest chap. He is 
a dreamer of dreams, mixing about in his dreams machines 
and flowers and motorboats. But in this practical world of 
ours, flowers and flower shops are his bent and he knows 
them so well that his classmates voted him the best in 
his major. 

Chester Howard Niles 

Poultry Bellows Falls, Vt. 

1914. Outing Club, 2. Poultry Club, 2. Assembly 
Monitor, 2. 

He will not let us forget that he is from Vermont and 
will recite the state's history at any time. He is one of 
those happy-go-lucky boys who think that their wit runs 
high at the Abbey. He is a sure source of information on 
most any topic and has been an active member of the 
Outing Club. 



Frederick William Noonan 

Animal Husbandry Vergennes, Vt. 

1913. Kolony KJub. Shorthorn Board, 1; Editor-in- 
Chief, 2. Animal Husbandry Club, 1 ; Treasurer, 2. Mem- 
bership Chairman, Kolony Klub, 2. Cross Country, 1. 

Fred, without exaggerating, has been one of the most 
outstanding members of the Class of 1935. He was justly 
voted the "best An. Hus'er", won his letter in Cross Country, 
and took an active interest in all other sports and social 
activities. He was a member of the '34 Shorthorn Board 
and is "Ye Editor" of this present publication. We, the 
Class, wish to thank you Fred for the time and effort you 
have spent so effectively on our year book. 

Ralph Boothby Nourse 

Animal Husbandry Sterling 

1915. K. O. Club, 2. 

Ralph was one of our new-comers this year, a transfer 
from Worcester North High School. He and Ken Prentiss 
could always be seen together. Ralph has been pretty serious 
about his work and studied faithfully because he is here 
for a purpose. He has a ready smile, is always good- 
natured and we are glad he came to Stockbridge. 

West Falmouth 
Baseball, 2. K. O. 

John Pena 


1909. Football, 1, 2. Track, 1, 2. 
Club, 1. Horticulture Club. 

"How's You'all" is the greeting we give and receive 
from John. John has taken a lot of kidding but always 
with a smile and he usually has a comeback on the tip of 
his tongue. We feel that special mention must be made 
of John's football ability, he certainly could carry that ball 
and couldn't he punt. We admire John for his jovial and 
carefree attitude towards life. 



Rocco Pepi 

Greenkeeping Framingham 

1913. Another man who lets the grass grow under his 
feet, that's his business. Rocco has a quick mind, a quicker 
wit, and a fondness for argument, even speech making. 
We never see him at our dances, we wonder whether he 
spends his time studying or is just "being Faithful". Best 
of luck, Rocco, and may we sometime play on your golf 

John Uno Per a 

"The Flying Finn" 
Dairy Fitchburg 

1915. Football, 1, 2. Basketball, 1. Band, 1, 2. 

"Johnnie" is a fellow who loves his sleep but never let 
it be said of him that he is lazy for he is right on his toes 
when the need comes. A consistent, likeable chap he 
bolstered up the football team at guard and could always 
be depended upon to do his part. "Johnnie" is a proficient 
dairyman, no doubt, urged on by some vague incentive 
coming from down Fitchburg way. 

Kenneth Frank Prentiss 

Animal Husbandry Hubbardston 

1914. The second member of the Nourse-Prentiss com- 
bination. "Ken" goes about with the most determined look 
upon his face that one could imagine. His determination 
gets him places tho, as evidenced by his good work in 
Animal Husbandry. Apparently he feels that he has no 
time to waste on frivolities and it takes a really good joke 
to bring about a smile. 



George Osgood Putnam 

Ploriculture Andover 

1915. Hockey, 1, 2. Cross Country, 2. Winter Track, 2. 

Track and hockey have shared "Put's" time along with 
flowers the latter, very apparently, his chief interest. Argu- 
ment is another subject very much his forte and if you are 
looking for someone to share your hot air with then look 
for George; he will wind you. And still we know only a 
little about "Put", tho he has been here two years he has 
been so quiet that it has been hard to get acquainted. 

Albert Laurence Ratte 

Poultry Andover 

1914. Kolony Klub; Treasurer, 2. Student Council, 2. 
Football, 1, 2. 

Happy on Saturday, sober on Monday, don't misinterpret 
this; it is just in the first case that he is looking forward 
to a pleasant week-end and in the second he has settled 
down to work again. "Al" had a bad case of the blues this 
fall while his broken wrist kept him out of football until 
the last of the season. You are an earnest and sincere 
worker, "Al", best of luck. 

Donald Arthur Regan 



East Boston 

1915. Kolony Klub; Vice-President, 2. Shorthorn 
Board, 2. Football, 1, 2. Hockey, 1 ; Captain, 2. Track, 2. 
Boxing, 1. Baseball, 2. Student Council, 2. Band, 2. 

The proprietor of the fungus roofed crate that roamed 
the streets of Amherst! Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha, "Don" must be 
reading another letter again. "Don" has a hearty laugh 
and is quick to blush when he is embarrassed. 'We guess 
tho, that his opponents in athletic contests think him so 
tough that he could never blush. When not working, 'Don" 
plays the piano or is planning landscaping. 



Kenneth LeRoy Reid 

Animal Husbandry Noank, Conn. 

1914. Alpha Tau Gamma. Football, 1; Captain, 2. 
Basketball, 2. Baseball, 2. Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 
Agronomy Club, 1, 2. Dairy Club, 1. 

The genial captain of football who talks about trick plays. 
"Ken" seems to just bubble over with good nature and we 
rarely see him without a smile. One amusing thing about 
"Ken" is the way he makes explanations with his hands; 
it's a good thing he didn't make any gestulations while 
occupying the role of waiter at Ma Goodwin's domocile. 
"Ken" is an earnest fellow who will always have something 
to do. 

Warren Alvan Riley 


1915. Kolony Klub, and President 
Student Council, 2. Football, 1, 2. 


2. Shorthorn Board, 2. 
Track, 2. Baseball, 2. 

'Ozzie" is pretty proud of his curly hair, we'll have to 
admit that it is nice. Warren reflects his feelings by his 
actions, when he is sad he's sad and when he is happy he's 
gay. He has taken the interests of Kolony Klub to heart 
and has made a good president. "Ozzie" has been a hard- 
working Greenkeeper even tho he did go to sleep in class 
rather often. 

Guilbert Leon Ross 

Vegetable Gardening Montague 

1913. "Gil" came to us from the wilds of Montague to 
enrich his knowledge of vegetable gardening and fruit 
culture. He is rather a quiet fellow but is well liked just 
the same; there is no harm in being quiet. He is seldom 
seen at social functions, we don't know why, but those who 
know him best can probably guess. 



Russell Francis Sears 

Horticulture Plymouth 

1914. Alpha Tau Gamma. Horticulture Show, 2. 

"Russ", although he spends most of his time clowning, 
always has some weighty problems on his mind ; the chief 
one being that of choosing between certain representatives 
of McCarthy's Business School or Smith College. But, we 
feel that he is not entirely to blame for this situation. 
Yes, he does study, his marks prove that. 

Gordon Harvey Shortsleeves 

Animal Husbandry 

1915. Basketball, 1, 2. Track, 2. 

Baseball, 2. Social 

Dance Committee, 2. Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 
Agronomy Club, 1, 2. Dairy Club, 1. 

"Shorty" could usually be found with "Ken" Reid, the 
two were almost inseparable. One has to like him because 
his friendliness is sincere and he is more than willing to 
do his share. He is one of those people who get ahead 
because of their sincerity and modesty. Basketball is 
"Shorty's" sport and he plays the game very well, indeed. 

Converse Burr Smith 

Vegetable Gardening Waltham 

1915. Alpha Tau Gamma. Chairman of Initiation Com- 
mittee; Alpha Tau Gamma, 2. Vice-President, Student 
Council, 2. Senior Dance Committee. Veg. Gardening 

A cheerful smile, a helping hand, a loyal friend, and a 
student whose grades we all envy. An important cog in 
all fraternal and social life, "Smitty" devoted his efforts to- 
wards making life on campus more enjoyable. If more of 
his legs were turned under for feet they would then match 
his hands and his success as a truck gardener would be 



Lester Charles St. Jean 


Floriculture Northampton 

1915. Floriculture Club, 2. 

"Les" is the so-called quiet member of the gang from 
"Hamp", but, rumors are abroad that he is less quiet than 
he seems. His mind is alert and flexible and "Les" can 
adjust himself to all kinds of situations, a trait that more 
of us wish we could emulate. We believe that the time 
"Les" has spent here has not been in vain. 

Wilbur Clark Stocking 

Horticulture Simsbury, Conn. 

1913. Another Connecticut Yankee. "Socks" is a curly- 
haired, stalwart lad whom his classmates consider serene, 
good-natured and studious. To his closer friends he seemed 
at times to be full of the devil. "Socks" has had much 
practical experience in the field of forestry and the least 
we can expect is that someday he will make a sizeable 
contribution to that field of work. 

Harry Dewitt Thompson 

Horticulture Fort Lookout, South Dakota. 

1909. Football, 1, 2. Boxing, 1, 2. Track, 1, 2. 
Y. M. C. A. 

"Tommy" has been a distinct character on our campus. 
Quiet, good natured, and sociable, he is liked and respected 
by everyone. Those of us who have listened to his tales 
of life on the Indian Reservation will always remember him. 
While with us, he distinguished himself as a ground-gaining 
football back and the best boxer in school. His chief 
interest is in trees. May you, like your trees live long, 



James Otis Thorndike 

Horticulture East Bridgewater 

1916. Football, 1, 2. Hockey, 2. 

A fine student and a real friend in every way, this "Jim". 
He spends most of his spare time writing songs and playing 
the piano in the "Mem" building. And don't forget the 
week-ends he spends at home. Although he weighs only 
125 pounds "soaking wet" he is a two letter man and a 
sportsman in the broadest sense of the word. 

Ralph Waldo Tripp, Jr. 

Dairy North Westport 

1916. Alpha Tau Gamma. Football, 1, 2. Shorthorn 
Board, 2. Student Council, 2. 

Wavy, tousled, blond hair, a smiling face, a ready wit 
that is a picture of "Trippie". He quickly won a wide- 
spread popularity by his pleasant personality and willing- 
ness to help his friends. "Trippie" was one of the first to 
win his football letter and he earned it if anybody did. 
Beneath his sunny exterior rests a keen mind which has made 
him an outstanding "dairyman". 

Lawrence Alden White 

Horticulture East Freetown 

1915. K. O. Club, 1, 2. Agronomy Club, 2. 

"Whitie" is a quiet, hard working student who came 
with the idea of getting the most out of the Horticulture 
course that he could and followed the idea right straight 
through. But, don't think he is too serious. He has a 
much lighter and gayer side to his nature which he often 
displays in his leisure time.

Upon this body rests the responsibility for the direction of undergraduate conduct; 
for the instruction of incoming freshmen in the traditions of Stockbridge and likewise 
in the penalties attending infringment of rules and regulations thereof; for the super- 
vision of many social and class affairs ; and for the representation of student opinion and 
student needs before the faculty and Director Verbeck. 

Three accomplishments are worthy of note at this time. First the final recognition 
of the part played in the Stockbridge school by women students in the recent action all- 
owing S. C. S. to elect one representative to the council. 

A sub-committee under the direction of Converse Smith cooperated with Director 
Verbeck in arranging more interesting convocations. The evidence to date indicates that 
their efforts were highly successful. 

Lastly much credit is due to Albert Ratte and his Committee for the successful 
Student-Faculty Social and Dance staged during the past winter. It proved to be one 
of the most entertaining social gatherings of the year and we hope that this inaugural 
event will establish a precedent leading to even more cordial relations between faculty 
and student body.

The play is the story of three old men, a judge, a physician and a financier who 
share a home and live in a rut of methodical habit. The doctor thinks that they ought 
to get out of their ruts and "roll among the buttercups". Into their lives comes the 
daughter of the woman all three loved in earlier years. They try the buttercup cure, 
find a few thistles mixed in, and return to their ruts the wiser and better therefor.

Richard C. "Dick" Foley is a graduate of 
M. S. C. in the class of '27. Following a 
couple of years as herdsman for a well- 
known Guernsey establishment he returned 
to his alma mater as instructor in Animal 
Husbandry in 1930. His work as a teacher 
has been outstanding, especially his courses 
in Types and Market Classes and Meats. He 
has also become an authority on pasture 
management, and earned his master's degree 
in this field. His sincerity and thoroughness, 
together with a keen sense of humor, make 
him a prime favorite with all Animal Hus- 
bandry majors. 

As faculty advisor to this year's Shorthorn 
board "Dick" has rendered invaluable service 
and the board wishes, herewith, to express 
to him its deep appreciation for his con- 
structive criticism and his friendly council., 



Professor Lowry with his independent 
mind, his positive methods of expressing 
himself, and his definite horticultural inter- 
ests, has been a great asset to the College and 
to the student body. As a teacher he has 
the rare ability of making his students enjoy 
their work and respect the instructor because 
of the interest which he creates in the subject. 

It is his efficient, capable method in hand- 
ling the various questions pertaining to his 
work, and other activities, which are prompt- 
ly and courteously answered, with no doubt 
left in the questioner's mind as to the stand 
of the instructor, that has won the respect 
of the horticultural students. 

We have to admire him for his apparent 
freedom, for his enjoyment of nature. Many 
of the good trails on Mt. Toby show the 
efforts of his endeavors in trail cutting, 
hiking, and comradship, which are promoted 
through this love of the outdoors. We can 
all learn much from his personality, his 
earnestness, and his philosophy of life. 

Professor Lowry's un- 
timely and saddening 
death on May 20th, 
1935, causes us to dedi- 
cate this page to the 
memory of one we 
loved so well. 





It seems, unfortunately, that the students of Stockbridge School know very little 
about the history and background of the School. This is not by any means entirely 
their fault because they have had no opportunity to study or read about its history. 
There has never been an historical sketch published and we hear only a little by word 
of mouth. It is felt that an historical sketch could do much to stimulate interest and 
appreciation. It would give a feeling perhaps that we have traditions. Perhaps it will 
make us appreciate that Stockbridge School has played a more vital part in our lives 
than we have realized. The Class of 1935 hopes that it has made a real contribution to 
the future of Stockbridge by making this attempt to publish this, even though it be 
modest and short. 

We had better begin perhaps with the actual acts that created the school. There 
were, of course, circumstances, thoughts, and ideas which preceded by many years the 
actual beginning of the school. In fact some of these circumstances take us back to 
1893 and there is at least one very interesting effect that those years had. 

Our first reference is to the annuals of the Legislature of the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts. Looking back we find an extract from the "Journal of the House" of 
Tuesday, May 14, 1918, as follows: — "Resolved, That in the opinion of the General 
Court there should be established at the Massachusetts Agricultural College a two-years 
course in practical agriculture in completion of which certificates of graduation should 
be granted; that the course should be open to all residents of the Commonwealth who 
have attained the age of seventeen years and who possess the educational qualifications 
necessary for admission to any public high school of the Commonwealth." 

And next, looking to the proceedings of the Trustees of Massachusetts Agricultural 
College we find that in October 1918 — "It was voted by the Trustees that the College 
oflfer a course of study that will meet the intent and spirit of the Legislature of 1918 
embodied in Senate Resolution No. 374". And so now, at this date, the responsibility 
of organization finally rests with the administration. 

But let us look to the events preceding these steps. There had been for some time 
a Ten Weeks Winter School at which practical men already in the field of agriculture 
could get special training at the College during the slack winter months. And still 
further back, in 1893 to be exact, there was organized under President Goodell a two- 
year school. Evidently it did not prove successful for it lasted only two weeks. Professor 
Rand in his book "Yesterdays" says this about them (referring to the two-year students) : 
"The Trustees voted NOT to call them the Wilder School of Agriculture but the Four- 
Year students did vote to call them Shorthorns". 

The four-year students were very much perturbed about these two-year men being 
on campus. They thought that there was a grave danger that M. A. C.'s scholastic 
reputation would fall into disrepute. This same feeling, just as strong as before, was 
present when the new rwo-year school was organized in 1918. The title of our Year- 
book as you see has an interesting origin. 

There were many influences and reasons which caused the Legislature to enact that 
fortunate piece of legislation. It was at the end of the war period and agricultural 
prosperity was at its peak. At that time the future of agriculture looked bright and 
the war-time experience had shown a need for trained men in that field. Too many, 
it seemed, of the graduates of agricultural colleges while they went into fields related 
to agriculture did not become "dirt farmers". There were many men who felt them- 
selves to be too old to go to college, but still felt the need for some vocational training. 
There were men who for one reason or another could not meet either the scholastic or 
financial entrance requirements of college. And finally there were men who left grammar 



school to go to work and later in life realized the necessity of education. So, it was 
with such people in mind, particularly, that the school was created. 

Immediately after the vote of the Trustees, President Butterfield requested that a 
four months course be organized to start in November or December with courses wholly 
elective. Professor John Phelan was called from his chair in Rural Sociology to take 
over the directorship of the school and other related short courses. A committee made 
up of Professors Cance, Sears, Foord, Fernald, and McNutt was asked to frame a tentative 
course. Similar courses which were being given at Ohio, Maryland, Nebraska, Michigan, 
Maine, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Missouri, Mississippi, and Wisconsin were studied 
and a program was formulated. The announcement, embodied in a 29 page catalogue 
dated November 1918, offered ten courses and stated that women were as free to take 
them as men. Fifteen names appeared in the list of faculty. Classes were to meet five 
times a week in each subject for one hour at a time with one additional laboratory hour 
for each class hour. Tuition was free to residents of the State. 

On December 2, 1918, thirty-five students had the honor of becoming the entering 
class of a school which was to quickly become a success. 

The Recess Committee on Education of the Legislature visited the college later in 
the year and made very close inquiries as to the steps the college was taking to make 
effective the resolution of the Legislature. It was recommended that the school should 
avoid as far as possible entering the field of secondary agricultural education. This 
could be done by eliminating as mach as possible the courses providing for general 
education and by confining the courses to teaching practical work. 

Other pressing problems were coming up. How long should the school year be? 
Finally it was decided that it should begin in the fall at the same time that the college 
opened for four-year students. For the entering classes the year would end at the 
end of the winter term at which time they left to do their placement work on farms. 
As for the Seniors, they were to remain the full three terms. Then, something had 
to be done about instructors. A special staff was needed. Hitherto professors and 
instructors of the college had been giving the lectures and supervising the laboratory 
work. Some of them were to continue but more instructors were needed and in adding 
to the staff care must be taken that only men who were well versed in their field, who 
were good at teaching and who had broad human sympathies were chosen. The second 
catalogue, 1919, listed thirty-two instrucrors on the faculty. The problem of handling 
the placement training was perplexing. The requirements for this part of the course 
made their first appearances in the 1919 catalogue too. It looked as if a special officer 
would be required to take charge of this work. However, it was not until the 1921-22 
school-year that the first real Supervisor of Placement Training, whose work was solely 
this field, was added to the staff. 

It was no simple task, this organizing of the two-year school. It was started at a 
time when the military situation was tense. The four-year college had been disrupted 
somewhat by men leaving as volunteers or because of the draft. The age requirement 
for entrance had been set at seventeen but this had to be lowered to sixteen temporarily 
because of the draft. The economic situation was abnormal at the time too. Director 
Phelan was indeed working under difficulties. He had in front of him a spectre, as it 
were, of former attempts to establish a two-year school all of which had failed. But, 
Director Phelan had much respect and admiration for President Butterfield and if 
President Butterfield wanted the school to be successfully established it must be done. 
All references to the early history of the school speak of him in terms of praise and 
today we write in terms of praise also. 



The second school year began September 22, 1919, and ended June 22, 1920. 
This year the catalogue listed sixteen courses for entering students and thirty-four courses 
for the second year. It stated too that there would be weekly Assemblies on Wednesday 
afternoons and special Chapel Services on Sundays during the winter months. Refer- 
ence was also made to the library facilities of the college: "The College Library occupies 
the entire lower floor and basement of the Chapel-Library building". Two hundred and 
nine students were enrolled this year. 

In 1920-21 we find that the faculty list has increased to forty-three. There is 
some mention made of a Two-year Council formed for the purpose of representing the 
student body. A partial description of the social advantages of the college includes a 
few words about the "Trophy Room" in North College: "A room for lounging, music, 
reading, and study", also reference is made to a game room in the basement of North 
College. Remember, the Memorial Building was not in existence then. But, the big. 
item of interest is found in the statement of regulations: "Students are allowed ten 
percent cuts from Chapel, Assembly, and classes". 

This same year was rather a trying one. An act called the "Vocational Rehabili- 
tation Act" which provided for vocational instruction for veterans of the World War 
had been passed by Congress. All Land-Grant Colleges were supposed to aid in this 
work and at Massachusetts Agricultural College it fell to the lot of the two-year school 
to provide a "Special Unit Course in Agriculture". Now Kipling once said something 
to the effect that "Soldiers ain't painted angels". There were about two hundred and 
thirty Veterans enrolled and an heterogeneous crowd they were. Some of them could 
neither read nor write. Special teachers had to be added to the staff to teach English 
and Arithmetic. A letter from one of these men to Director Phelan said that when 
he came he could neither read nor write but thanks to his good teachers he could read 
a newspaper now as well as anyone. So, at least some of these men took full advantage 
of their opportunities. 

June 6, 1921, was the date of the first commencement. Seventy-nine men and 
ten women were graduated. Class Day exercises were held in the Rhododendron Garden 
on Saturday afternoon. On the same afternoon the Class Memorial Fountain was- 
dedicated in front of Wilder Hall and President Butterfield accepted the gift for the 
college. Prexy was the first to drink from the fountain although it must have been 
with some misgivings because the water of the newly installed fountain was probably 
rusty and dirty. To some of us the reason we were required to salute the fountain as 
freshmen has never been clear, now it is explained. A banquet was held in Draper 
Hall that evening; a Baccalaureate Service was held on Sunday; and Commencement 
exercises were held in Stockbridge Hall on June 6th with Senator Ladd of North Dakota 
delivering the address. The climax came with the Prom that night. We read that 
the music was good, the decorations excellent, and favors were given to every person 

The Class of 1921 did something else too. They published the first Year-book, 
the first "Shorthorn". And, after looking it through we are convinced that they did it 
very well. We discover in this Year-book that three Fraternities or "Clubs" have been 
established. Alpha Tau Gamma and Kolony Klub were founded in 1919 and the 
W. T. E. Club was founded in 1920. There is a Sorority called Alpha Delta Sigma 
which was founded in 1919 also. 

In the 1921-22 catalogue we find some interesting statistics as to the trend of 
enrollment. In 1918, 35 students; in 1919, 209 students; in 1920, 280 students; and 
in 1921, 324 students. Who could deny that the Two-year School was growing? Rules 
were apparently increasing too because now, besides the Wednesday afternoon assembly, 
attendance at Chapel exercises on two mornings a week is required. Placement Training 



has definitely come into its own now because at last there is a man named in the Staff 
who carries the official title of "Supervisor of Placement Training". Among descriptions 
of social life on campus it is announced that a new building called the "Memorial 
Building"" had been erected in memory of the "Aggie" men who died in the war. 
The social center on campus is now this building. The main floor is composed of a 
Memorial Room, a lounging room and offices; the upper floor provides a place for 
dancing and parties; and in the basement there are pool and billiard tables and bowling 
alleys. The Year-book this year tells us that the sorority, Alpha Delta Sigma, has been 
reorganized and now calls itself the S. C. S. The W. T. E. Club has ceased to exist 
for some unknown reason. 

The 1922-23 school-year is full of new developments. A student organization, 
the Student Council, has definitely crystallized. It is composed of twelve members ; 
six seniors, four juniors, one representative of the Vocational Poultry Course, and one 
delegate-at-large. The Student Council was formed: "For the purpose of fostering 
the traditions and customs of Massachusetts Agricultural College among all Short Course 
students relative to the action and discipline of such students. Duties shall consist of 
the general duties of such a body where self-government is practiced". The Clubs are 
oraginizing still further by adopting "rushing rules". Alpha Tau Gamma is seeking 
new quarters. We read in a letter dated April 27, 1923, from the Direaor of Short 
Courses to President Butterfield that "The A. T. G., an organization of thirty-five or 
forty men, has been organized for four years now and wish a permanent home. They 
seem to be doing a lot of good for the school and they deserve consideration. 
They would like to secure the top floor of North College formerly occupied by the 
"Commons Club". And they did secure the top floor and made it their home until 
they bought their present house on Pleasant Street. Kolony Klub it seems had bought 
a house in 1920. 

Again we go to the Year-book to seek information and again we find some. In 
the middle of the book we stumble on a cartoon. It is a picture of a man throwing out 
a life preserver to some one in the water. On the life preserver is painted the words, 
"For Freshmen Only". The title of this cartoon is, "Gone Forever are the Days of 
Pond Parties". What significance this innocent drawing has! There is a story behind 
it and it goes something like this: It seems that all cases of misconduct on the part of 
the freshmen were duly considered by the Student Council and if a verdict of "guilty" 
was rendered, it automatically carried the sentence of a complete ducking in the pond. 
So, on occasions, a staging with a long plank extending out over the water was built at 
the end of the pond where the cross-walk is. The offending freshman was sought out, 
escorted down there and charges were solemnly preferred against him. The freshman 
then walked out on the plank and was followed by the President of the Council. The 
freshman would then jump in but the President didn't. Well it seems that this year 
the President of the Council, who was also President of one of the Clubs, took his 
duties pretty much to heart, so much so that the Freshmen considered him a trifle over- 
bearing. A case of misconduct occurred and the President performed his duties to 
the letter by following the freshman out on the plank, but, as the freshman leaped into 
the water he seized the President and both were ducked. The dignity and morale of 
the Council suflFered considerably because of this happening and pond parties of this 
type ceased, never to be resumed. 

Perhaps this is a good time too to speak of the hat rushes of those days. They 
proved to be rugged encounters and the hats often were the least important souvenirs 

During the next few years apparently few outstanding events have occurred. Place- 
ment Training occupies the first position in the catalogue and the Social Union activities 



of the four-year college are consistently mentioned. Early in the life of the school it 
was realized that provision should be made for athletics. The two-year men were 
ineligible for playing on the four-year teams. Other two-year schools could not be 
studied as examples because they had done veiy little in providing an athletic program. 
Professor Curry Hicks who was at the time and still is Professor of Physical Education 
at Massachusetts State College bent his efforts towards organizing an athletic program 
for the school. Emory E. Grayson was made Coach of two-year athletics in 1919 and 
remained until 1924. Football, Basketball and Baseball games were played with teams 
"in and out of Amherst". The task of coaching the teams when the Veterans were in 
school was indeed arduous. Lorin E. Ball was the one to succeed "Em" Grayson as 
Director of Athletics. 

We have now reached the school year of 1927-28 and a most important change 
has occurred. Residents of Massachusetts who have hitherto had to pay no tuition 
woefully find that from now on they will pay sixty dollars per year. 

A year later another change has occurred. This is a momentous one. In May 
1928 the Trustees of the College vote to change the name from "The Two-year Course 
in Practical Agriculture" to "Stockbridge School of Agriculture". It was felt that this 
would more clearly differentiate between the two-year, non-degree courses and the four- 
year, degree courses offered at the same college. It was named Stockbridge after Levi 
Stockbridge the first Piesident of Massachusetts Agricultural College. Levi Stockbridge 
was a man possessing many fine attributes and he commanded the respect of all who 
knew him. As the first President, his eflforts to make the College a permanent and 
successful institution never ceased. We feel that it is an honor to bear his name and 
a better one could not have been chosen. There is in possession of the Stockbridge 
family a silk hat that Levi Stockbridge wore when he was a member of the Massachusetts 
General Assembly. We have a fond hope that someday it will be given to the school 
as a memento of a great leader. 

Looking through the 1928-29 catalogue we find that the "Shorthorn" and the 
Clubs are mentioned for the first time. Rather tardy recognition we should say. 

We are now going to skip a few years because this span seems to have been rather 
lean as far as historical information goes. We have now arrived at the 1931-32 school 
year and not a bit too early it seems, because classes this year start promptly at seven- 
thirty in the morning and continue to five P. M. Well, anyway, it is just as hard on 
the professors as on the students. This year the new Physical Education Building is 
ready for use. What a lot that means to us: a team room for Stockbridge athletic teams, 
a big indoor cage, a swimming pool. Stockbridge athletics now embrace cross-country, 
winter track, and hockey as well as the two major sports, football and basketball. 

Next year we go to Assembly on Wednesday mornings instead of Wednesday after- 
noons and there are no more weekly Chapels for us. 

Finally we come to the year when we, the Class of 1935, entered. We are the 
first class to enter under the semester plan. Formerly the college year consisted of three 
terms. The fitst term extended from October to Christmas, the second from New Years 
to March 21st approximately, and the third consumed the rest of the year. We saw 
President Baker inaugurated and were represented at the ceremony. We have witnessed 
the erection of two new buildings on campus, namely Thatcher Dormitory and Goodell 

There are numerous objects on the campus and in the buildings which we have 
often seen but we wonder how many have recognized them as gifts of previous Stock- 
bridge classes. We spoke about the fountain in front of Wilder Hall that was given by 
the Class of 1921. We have saluted it often if not well. But, we wonder how many 
know about the drinking fountain in the basement of the Memorial Building, that was 



the gift of the Class of 1922. We wager that almost every one of us has at some time 
or other sat out a dance on the lounge in front of the fire-place in the "Mem" building. 
The clock facing you over the fire-place was given by the Class of 1923. And across 
the hall in the Council Room is a table and chair presented by the Class of 1924. In 
the beautiful Memorial Room itself is a Stand of Colors and the State Flag, the class 
gift from 1925. Outdoors over on the east side of the campus in the formal garden is 
a sun-dial given by the Class of 1926. We wager too that as you sat in the reading 
room of the Library and watched the clock to tell when you should leave for classes 
or to see if it wasn't almost five o'clock so that you could go swimming you never knew 
that you were looking at the clock given by the Class of 1927. The Class of 1928 
contributed their gift to the Physical Education Building Fund. The American Flag 
and the State Flag in Bowker Auditorium are held by the bronze flag holders given by 
the Class of 1929. The Class of 1930 aided the Stockbridge Dramatic Club by 
purchasing a rug for them. The Class of 1931 spent their money for Prom favors and 
of course took them home with them. In 1932 the Campus was enriched by a one 
hundred and fifty dollar gift of Evergreen plantings. In the Herd-Book room in Stock- 
bridge Hall there hangs a large and beautiful picture of Sir Galahad given to the 
Department of Agriculture by the Class of 1933. Our friends of last year left a 
collection of Catawbiense for the Rhododendron Garden and a marker made from a 
granite boulder. And as to our gift, well, we will have to come back to the "Amherst 
Game" next fall and see the Band wearing the smart uniforms which we have helped 
to purchase. 

We leave behind also, this history, sketchy and incomplete though it is. We hope 
that it will refresh our memories and increase our respect for our Alma Mater and may 
it inspire future Stockbridge men the same way, if perchance they read this. There was 
a time when there was a bitter feeling between the students of Stockbridge and the 
College. That has nearly disappeared now and may it be entirely erased in the near 

These last few weeks in April and May have been enjoyable ones, but, we won't 
really live them to the full until at some future date our memories bring us back to the 
beautiful little town of Amherst, the sloping, green campus of Massachusetts State 
College, and we hear again the bell in the Chapel tower calling us to hurry-hurry-hurry. 




The Placement Training division of the Stockbridge School curriculum is unique. 
There has been some discussion in the past, on the part of college administrations, 
concerning the advisability of requiring the entering student to have had at least a year 
of praaical work between graduation from high school and his entrance into college. 
The idea has many merits which will be put forth later, but, the difficulty lies in the 
fact that to meet such requirements would be impossible for most students. 

Placement Training successfully overcomes this obstacle. It is one of the very few 
such programs carried on in the field of education and carried on successfully. So, we 
consider it an outstanding part of our education. 

It is not like a trade school program where work and study are intermingled during 
the school year. The freshman student enters and gets six months of intensive practical 
study which furnishes him a general background of knowledge in his chosen major. 
His mind is stimulated to think about the things he wishes to learn; he is made alert 
so that his mind is more observing ; he has been taught the theory and now he is anxious 
to test it. In the meantime he has been enjoying the social life that is found at college 
and he has had the opportunity of participating in organized sports. 

Then he takes a job and sticks to it for six months. It is not a job directed by 
impractical theories, nor is it one where money is of no consideration. On the contrary, 
Tie is put to work for an employer in the practical field who runs his business to fit 
into the scheme of things as they are in this practical world, and who makes his living 
from his business. Truly the student comes into contact with the work he has chosen 
for his living in an intimate way and he soon learns his fitness or his failure to qualify 
in that field. 

Let us consider reasons why the Placement Training we Seniors have been through 
and which others will go through, is much an important event in our lives. 

It is universally agreed that responsibility of one sort or another develops self- 
reliance, initiative, and foresight ; at least it does if the man takes his responsibilities 
seriously. Placement Training perhaps more than anything else occurring in our normal 
life, at our present age, serves to develop our character, to stabilize our ideas, and to 
bring us face to face with the fact that the world does not owe us a living, but rather, 
we have to fight for what we get. 

Development of character, self-reliance, a more mature philosophy of life, experi- 
ence in making contacts with strangers; these things alone, to say nothing of the value 
of the experience one gets from his work, are enough to make Placement Training 

A majority of the students come to Stockbridge directly from high school. Their 
life has so far been relatively easy ; they have not had to work too hard ; they have not 
had too many worries, for their parents bore them; and to some of them this was their 
first time away from home. All is changed now. When they go to work for their 
new employer, life is no longer easy and pleasant. They must bend their backs and 
skin their knuckles. It makes no difference to the employer who one's father is or what 
his reputation is, the man himself is all that counts. He has to use judgment in executing 
his assignments for otherwise he is at cross-sticks with his boss and the latter has all 
the advantage. The student automatically has a reputation which he must live up to. 
He has been to college and studied for six months therefore, why shouldn't he be more 
intelligent than the average young man of his age? The ambitious student dares not 
do anything but live up to this expectation for his employer is a possible source of a 
^ood recommendation which he will sorely need in landing a job after graduation. 



When the student goes out on Placement he is living away from home, rubbing 
shoulders with the rest of the world. This is good experience, too, because it teaches 
him to adjust himself to living with the people he finds next to him. It offers an 
opportunity to apply some psychology or to learn it, whichever the case may be. And 
the student must adapt himself because he has to stick to the job and life might just as 
well be enjoyable as disagreeable. 

Perhaps it may seem that this character building is being stressed too much because, 
after all. Placement Training is intended to give practical experience in the particular 
field of work the student has chosen. But, curiously enough, that seems to be the out- 
standing result. Ask any Professor about the effect on the student and he will invariably 
answer that he notices a tremenduous change in the man who comes back as a Senior 
from the boy who went out as a Freshman. There has been a change from youth to 
man. He is more poised; he knows better what he wants from his studies and conse^ 
quently seeks it; he has grasped the realization of the necessity of education and fully 
appreciates the opportunities offered him. Small wonder that these men are able to 
take up the work of organization such as the Student Council and the Fraternities. 
The weaker ones have been eliminated. They have either quit or could not hold their 
job, in either case they could not return as Seniors. 

But, we must not forget the value of the practical experience the students get. 
Experience is the best teacher; there are certain things that one can not learn from 
books. The student goes out with a good bit of theory stored away in his mind which 
has been taught him by his professors. Is this theory stuff practical? Well, here is 
an opportunity to put it to test and an opportunity for observations. Innumerable 
questions arise as his work goes along, these he puts away in the back of his head with 
the thought that next fall he will have the chance to find the answers. 

It is indeed fortunate that Placement Training has been made such an important 
part of our work. When, as a prospective applicant, we studied the Stockbridge School 
■catalogue, we were apt to scoff at the idea of Placement, with the words, "I don't want 
to spend my time doing that work, I had rather be studying". But, now, after we have 
been through it we fully realize that the idea is sound and farsighted. 

Much credit is due to the Directors of the Placement work who laid the foundations 
and who have so successfully guided its growth. Indeed this is an apt time to express 
our appreciation to our present Placement Supervisor, "Em" Grayson. We have all had 
intimate contact with him and found him to be fair and helpful and thoroughly in love 
with his work. He believes very sincerely that what he is trying to do will be a benefit 
to us. 

So we may well be proud of the fact that we. Seniors, have experienced Placement 
Training and have succeeded. We may consider ourselves fortunate to have gone to 
a school which placed us on a job in order to broaden our experience and which helped 
us to make the best of it.

Steady improvement, consistent football, and courage in the face of misfortune 
characterized the 1934 football campaign. Handicapped by a late start, a lack of letter- 
men, and short practice periods. Coaches Ball and Tuttle whipped the team into 
shape for the opening game with Wilbraham Academy at Wilbraham. Excellent team- 
work on the offense, and a stubborn defense — featuring Don Regan — produced a 
6 — win. 

A hard game against the Conn. State freshmen at Storrs ended with Stockbridge 
on the short end of a 26 — score; but, not a bit discouraged by this set-back the team 
journeyed to Saxton's River, Vt., on Oct. 27 and took Vermont Academy into camp 
7 — 0. It was an expensive victory, however, as Harry Thompson, smashing fullback 
broke his thumb and was lost to the team for the rest of the season. This was a severe 
blow for not only his presence in the line-up, but the grit and determination he displayed 
were sorely missed by his team-mates. 

A rugged Springfield Freshman eleven out generaled, but did not outplay the 
"Ballmen" on the home field Nov. 2, to make it two and two for the season at the half- 
way mark. 

The following week. Coach Ball picked a squad of 22 men for the annual tilt with 
the National Farm School at Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Playing their best game of the 
season and one of the best ever put on by a Stockbridge team against the Farm School 
gridmen, the team held the powerful Pennsylvania team to two touchdowns. 

Inspired by Capt. "Ken Reid", who was ably assisted by Blondy Juhnevicz and 
"Wes" Ball, the team re-entered the win column at the expense of Essex Aggie 7 — 
on Alumni Field. 

The 1934 football team closed a successful season with 4 wins and 3 losses by 
scoring an impressive 12 — victory over Deerfield Academy on Nov. 23. This was 
the second Stockbridge team to beat Deerfield in the history of S. S. A. Deerfield 
Academy football relations and the accurate punting of "Dick" Robbins, '36, and the 
consistent line-plunging of Tom Goodwin, '36, augured well for the 1935 season. 

Capt. Reid by his all-round leadership and sturdy defensive play stamped himself 
one of the best ends ever to represent Stockbridge on the football field.

The Stockbridge Basketball team ended the season this year by breaking even with 
five wins to balance five losses. 

The opening game was dropped to Amherst High School by the narrow score of 
16 — 14. Captain Bemben was the outstanding player for the Stockbridge team. 

The second game started us winning, and Deerfield was beaten by a score of 26 — 20. 
Captain Bemben and Earl Johnson scored eleven points apiece in this game. 

The third game, this time with Vermont Academy, brought us another win by 
the overwhelming score of 23 — 10. Earl Johnson scored ten points in this game. 

The next game was a decisive defeat by a score of 42 — 13 administered by a very 
rstrong Westfield team. 

Then Suffield added another game to our list of defeats by beating us 27 — 15. 

The "Ballmen" apparently felt that they had suffered the sting of defeat long enough 
for they took the following three games by good scores. The Smith School was beaten 
17 — 12. Palmer High was beaten 20 — 12. Captain Bemben was again high scorer 
this game. And finally the Essex Aggie team was outplayed, and outscored 24 — 20. 

But this stretch of wins was ended when the Stockbridge men met the Agawam 
High quintet. The score turned out to be 32 — 22. Agawam High had a very strong 
team which reached the finals in the Small High School Basketball Tournament. 

The final game of the season was lost to Hopkins Academy, after a nip and tuck 
battle 21 — 18. 

Captain Bemben and Earl Johnson were the high scorers while Shortsleeves and 
Phil Craig did excellent work as guards.

While the season was unsuccessful as a whole, Stockbridge had the satisfaction of 
defeating Amherst High. A change of coaches at the beginning of the season caused 
a considerable delay in assigning the players to their most effective positions. Likewise 
the lack of playable ice cut the number of practice-sessions and caused the cancellation 
of several games. 

The first game was with Amherst High and netted as a 3 — 1 victory. 

The second game was skated against a fast, smooth, well groomed Holyoke High 
team, and while the score was 7 — in their favor, it is no indication of the spirit 
displayed by our team up to the end of the game. 

Our next game was with the State Freshmen and was a hard fought game throughout 
the three periods, the freshmen finally winning 7 — 3. 

The fourth and last game was the hardest fought game of the year. 

Both teams skated well but Deerfield took the game with a 4 — 2 score. Captain 
Regan, Dick Robbins, George Putnam, and Ken Mason all starred in this last game. 
The fine work of the defense and particularly the excellent work of Al Harlow at goal 
kept the score from being any higher. 

Captain Regan, '35, and Dick Robbins, '36, were the outstanding players throughout 
the season.

Only two Seniors responded to Coach Derby's call for Cross-Country men last fall. 
However, there were several Freshmen who were eager to take up the chase and the 
team numbered nearly fifteen men. 

Captain Carl Chaney proved to be a good pace-maker for his juniors since he never 
finished far from first in any race. Fred Anable from the Freshman squad was also a 
fast and consistent runner. 

Races were run against the State Freshmen, State Junior Varsity, Amherst Freshmen, 
and Amherst Junior Varsity over both the Massachusetts State College and Amherst 
College courses.

It was shortly after ten o'clock and I was lying in bed at my room on McClure St. 
Across the room was Davidson who was valiantly but vainly trying to get some sleep. 
As you might have guessed Pera and Barnes were making their usual racket across 
the street and sleep seemed almost impossible. 

Suddenly I heard a noise on the stairs, a muffled laugh, and the door swung open. 
Vaguely I sensed that something was coming towards my head. A size twelve shoe 
(identical in size to those worn by Chet Niles) hurtled thru the air and found its mark. 
A terrible darkness interspersed by livid flashes of lightning settled over me. I felt weak 
and dizzy. Things whirled thru my mind until finally these kaleidoscopic pictures 
resolved themselves into a clearer picture. 

Now I am riding in a taxi driven by Bill Macomber through the streets of an 
unknown city. He seems to be a fine driver and he points out the main sights of the 
town in a friendly manner. Apparently he doesn't recognize me for he says nothing 
of our school days together. I shall have to refresh his memory. 

"On the left", says the driver, "is the famous Chateau-de-la-Ritz apartments owned 
by Francis Dolan the Dean of "Wall Street. The doorman is a former Princeton football 
star, Don Regan, who was injured in the great Yale-Princeton game of 1945." 

We continued along this street in this strange city but we were somewhat impeded 
by a big sixteen cylinder Cadillac operated by Connie Smith with his bodyguard, Walt 
Bobowiec, at his side. Mac told me that they were probably going to the flower show 
where Johnnie Nichols and Jack Newman had exhibits of formal gardens. The Chairman 
of this great show is Rocco Pepi. 

As we ride along we come in sight of a large theatre, owned I found out later by 
Blondy Juhnevicz. The blinking electric sign tells me that "It Happened in New York", 
starring Ralph Nourse and Elizabeth Flint, is now playing. A vaudeville bill is headed 
by Dick Broughton and his "Casa Madrid" band with Helen Morgan Hopkins as the 
featured vocalist and also includes the Revellers Musical Trio; Mutter, Putnam and 

The program was so attractive that we stopped to see the show. While looking 
at the murals in the grand foyer we noticed a mahogany door bearing in gold lettering 
the words, 'Alexander Campbell, Manager". Alec was indeed glad to see us and gave 
us some of his famous Peter Schuyler Briefs to smoke. Jimmy Crockett, Usher-in-Chief, 
had a staff of as pretty ushers as I had ever seen. Grace Jacobs and Bud Forrest were 
seated a few rows in front of where we sat. Soon the show began. In the Hanieski 
and Hochstresser Metrotell News I saw pictures of John Pena, Southern California Sprint 
Champion, posing with Dan Bailey and Carl Chaney, International High Jump and 
Mile record holders respectively. Next came the comedy which featured Bob Clark 
and Earl Johnson in "Partners Forever". Then followed the feature picture. 

After leaving the show we left the city for a ride thru the country. We stopped 
at a large farm owned by Chick Abbot and Herbie Kimball. The head Herdsman is 
Gordon Shortsleeves who had hired Fred Carter as his assistant. We also meet George 
Cassidy, State Milk Inspector, who happened to be testing the herd. They tell us that 
about five miles down the road Wes Ball and Mike Bemben are running a combination 
market garden and flower farm. Jimmy Thorndike and Wilbur Stocking are employed 
there as specialists in the research department. 

All of a sudden the country around us seems to vanish and we find ourselves (Mac 
is still with me) in the Hollywood Club which is owned by Russell and G. Lawson 



Clark. After watching the floor show we leave with regret and in walking up what 
appears to be Broadway with all its glittering and dazzling neon signs shining in my 
eyes, I nearly walked by a very exclusive men's haberdashery owned by Harry Field. 
I stopped to look over his showing but left without buying because his advanced styles 
did not suit my conservative tastes. I now realized that I was in New York City 
because as I rounded a corner the brilliantly lighted sign of the Hotel Times Square 
stares me in the face. There is an empty feeling in my pocket as I remember my last 
visit there. I couldn't resist entering the lobby where to my surprise I find Dick 
Cunningham, Gordon Holt and Merrill Hunt whose company is graced by three young 
ladies who are introduced to me as school teachers from New Britain, Connecticut. 
After reminiscing awhile it finally came out that Fred Noonan is Editor of the New York 
Times and that Leslie MacRobbie has charge of the art department. Bert Ratte is the 
Desk Clerk at the hotel and is working for no salary other than his board and room 
for he is still paying for the damages resulting from the shower he left turned on his 
fust stay at the hotel. 

The fellows suggested that we have something to eat before retiring, so we adjourn 
to Steuben's. There we find that Mac Frink is the manager and that Lester St. Jean 
is his assistant manager. While we are eating, Luther Barstow accompanied by Guilbert 
Ross come in and join the party. "We learn that they are on their way to New Jersey 
to study conditions in the vegetable markets there. They tell us that Ralph Tripp is 
manager of the Dairymen's League's main plant in this city and that Ken Reid is 
supervisor of the country farms maintained by that organization. 

Upon leaving Steuben's we find that Mac is arguing with two cops who prove to 
be Harry Thompson and Warren Riley. They do not seem to recognize us at all and 
are just about to arrest us when Russ Sears and Sam Douglas come along. They have 
seen our plight and step up to the officers and speak to them for a few moments. 
The officers immediately become apologetic and leave. It turns out that our two former 
classmates are now politicians with a great deal of power, Tammany Hall again being 
in the saddle. 

That incident settled, Mac and I are riding serenely through traffic when suddenly 
I feel the cab swerve and lurch and I think I catch a glimpse of Mai Lucas and Lawrence 
White running across in front of us. Immediately there is a sickening crash and total 
darkness as a hydrant gets in Mac's way. 

Intermingled with ringing bells and blowing of policemen's whistles I hear a voice 
say, "Come on Al, let's get to class on time for a change". Then I realized that all 
had been a dream and that I had been visuaHzing my classmates as they might be in 
the future. 

Allen S. Harlow. 







Bits of Philosophy Ratte (Telling everyone to come to the 

Prof. Phillips: Freshmen bring a little mid-winter social and dance): If you 

knowledge into college and Seniors don't can't find a woman to bring we will give 

take any out. you something else to play with. 

Director Verbeck: The world's richest 
man is one who has a cigarette lighter and 
a wife both of which work. 

Prof. Lentz: A parasite is one who 
goes thru a revolving door on someone 
else's power. 

Prof. Smart: Do not appear to be 
choosing but with a quick glance select 
the best. 


In the Class room 
Prof. Lentz: How is bovine 

culosis spread? 

Ken Raid: Through the sputem. 
Prof. Lentz: Well! don't ever say I 

told you to buy spittoons for your cattle. 

Mr. Moser (Lecturing in Farm Manage- 
ment) : What could the farmer do with 
the money he has available for spending. 
Well, he might buy machinery, he might 
buy livestock: — 

Harry Field (In an undertone) : He 
might get plastered. 

Mr. Moser: Yes, he might get some 

Student: Has Mr. Bell got back from 
the Marketing Trip yet? 

Prof. Lindsey: Yes, we had to keep 
his cats while he was gone and he came 
and got them yesterday. He brought over 
three but he only took two back and the 
third one didn't get in my way either. 

Ratte (Asking about the Marketing 
Trip to New York) : Mr. Bell, what are 
the night hours on Broadway? 

Mr. Bell: All night I guess. 

Prof. Lindquist: Bailey! no tobacco 
smoking in the building. 

Bailey: That's not tobacco it is one of 
the cigars you gave me last night. 

Bailey (To his girl-friend) : Let me 
hold your hand. 

Girl-friend: Never mind, it is not 

Pena (At football practice) : Chet says 
"Come Back". 

We recently discovered that Professor 
Banta's desk is only the second worst on 
campus. There is a Professor over in 
Fernald Hall who has to walk into his 
office sideways. 

A Surprising Lineage 
Abbot was telling about his Placement 
Training experiences one day in Convo- 
cation. He worked on a farm where 
Guernsey cattle were kept and in telling 
about it he said: "I said I came from a 
Holstein herd". 

A Study in Rural Sociology 
Mr. Forbush, speaking at the Alumni 
Seminar: The only difference between 
the country today and five years ago is 
this: If you walked down the street five 
years ago with a bottle of whiskey and a 
five dollar gold-piece in your pocket you 
would be arrested for having the whiskey 
and today you would be arrested for 
having the gold-piece. 

Installment plan buying is like Mac- 
Robbie's mustache, a little down and a 
little each week.
