Reflections- 



Herein you will find a few familiar scenes 
and friendly faces, records of class achieve- 
ments and impressions of fellow students. 
Only if these stimulate pleasant memories 
of Stockbridge and of "36 have we accom- 
plished our purpose.

Dedication- 



The Class of 1936 respectfully dedicates its 
Shorthorn to one who has ever been found 
a friendly and willing adviser and whose 
fine, energetic spirit has maintained high 
standards for our attainment . . . Profes- 
sor Clark L. Thayer. 

The Editors 



CLARK L. THAYER 

When another freshman comes to college he does not make much of a splash — that 
is, unless somebody throws him in the pond. Thus when Clark L. Thayer arrived in 
the fall of 1909 there was hardly a ripple on the surface of our quiet academic life, even 
when the Class of 1912 pulled him through the fragrant w^aters of the lake; and I am 
sorry to remember that it was two years later before I began to notice his modest move- 
ments about the campus. From that time to the present he has constantly gained in 
public notice and esteem. 

After a while he went away to Cornell University for a period of work, study and 
development. This development was so marked, and so many other favorable testi- 
monies were constantly coming to light, that we were glad in 1919 to invite him back 
to a permanent place in our Department of Floriculture and in his Alma Mater. Here 
he has become one of the solid fixtures — a man of poise and character on whom the 
whole college community implicitly relies. 

Professor Thayer has always taken a hearty interest in students as persons and in 
their peculiar affairs. His work for years as chairman of the Student Life Committee 
has stood in evidence of this sincere and effective interest. 

He has also made a high professional reputation with the florists of Massachusetts 
and of New England. He was one of the leaders, for example, in the organization of 
the New England Flower Producers' Association and is still their very active secretary. 

Finally, Professor Thayer is an established and highly appreciated citizen of his 
community, not merely upon the college campus, but in the larger neighborhood out- 
side. To illustrate here again, he is a deacon in the church. And, unless my memory 
tricks me, so was his father before him. All of which just goes to show that fine 
character, piety and old-fashioned Yankee common sense still run in families — that is, 
in some families.

Robert W. Adams 

General Horticulture Housatonic 

1914. Basketball, 1. 2. 

His ever cheerful greeting reveals a pleasant nature. 
Though a native of the Western hills, he has in- 
terests elsewhere. At Mt. Auburn he acquired the 
art and science of digging graves — with the corners 
square. 





Edward H. Allen 

Poultry Husbandry South Hadley 

1913. Alpha Tau Gamma; Football, 1, 2; Student 
Council, 2 ; Poultry Club, 2 ; Class President, 2 ; 
Freshman Committee Chairman, 2. 

We are glad to have our class represented by 
Prexy. The Poultry majors recall their revels with 
him. His prowess on the gridiron and his scholastic 
attainments merit our sincerest approbation. 



Fred H. Allen 

Animal Husbandry Sterling 

1913. Wrestling, (State), 1, 2; Religious Council, 

2; Animal Husbandry Club, 2. 

Fred's ambition and unmeasured ability have placed 

him among the first in scholarship. Very naturally, 

he stands high in the well-merited regard of his 

friends. 





Kenneth W. Alton 

Dairy Manufactures 

Kolony Klub; Football. 



Dudley 
2; Basketball, 1, 



1914. 
2; Dairy Club, 2. 

All envy Ken for his ability to sleep through classes 
and still secure favorable reports. His athletic record 
is notable, and w^e cannot forget his cheerfulness. 



19 




Fred A. Anable 

Floriculture Westboro 

1915. Kolony Klub; Cross Country, 1, Captain, 
2; Track, 1, Captain, 2; Athletic Council, Secretary, 
2. 

Fortunately this red-head has a smile quicker than 
his temper — a true indication of his good nature. 
Above all else, we shall remember how successfully 
he slept through his classes, and we shall not forget 
his splendid leadership of an undefeated cross coun- 
try team. 



Norman S. Bailey 

Floriculture Newton Centre 

1912. Shorthorn, Editor-in-Chief, 2. 

A grand friend is Norm. He is capable, rather 
quiet, and possesses a distinct sense of humor. Since 
the surprise he sprang while on placement, he has 
become the confidant of enamored classmates. 





Lawrence F. Barry 

Dairy Manufactures Roslindale 

1915. Dairy Club, 1, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 

1. 

Coach is an ardent debater and he is especially 

fond of exposing his opinion on the fundamentals of 

football. He consistently applies himself to his work 

with characteristic persistency. 



Fenwick Beekman, Jr. 

Animal Husbandry Katonah, New York 

1913. Alpha Tau Gamma, Secretary, 2 ; Animal 
Husbandry Club, I. 

Foreign training developed in Beekie certain admir- 
able manners that demand our approbation. Week- 
end trips to Poughkeepsie seem a part of his school- 
ing. We shall remember his expressed liking for fine 
horses. 




20 



Frank S. Bishop 



Dairy Manufactures Springfield, Vermont 

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

President, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 

Because of his modesty, it is difficult to make 

Frank's acquaintance. His scholastic record is worthy 

of commendation. 





Randolph C. Blackmer 

Animal Husbandry Hardwick 

191 S. Cross Country, 2; Band, 2; Agronomy 

Club, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 2 

Blackie is an able, conscientious student who gives 

his best to his work. We have real evidence of his 

athletic inclinations. His apparent shyness will not 

hinder his future achievement. 



Robert E. Bossardt 

Animal Husbandry Winchendon 

1916. Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 
With us only a year, Bob has impressed all with 
his capability, his fair hair, and his blue eyes. Friend- 
ship with a notorious threesome has not lessened his 
potentialities, we trust. 





J. Emerson Bransford 

Floriculture Patchogue, New York 

1915. Shorthorn, Assistant Business Manager, 2; 
Orchestra, 1, 2; Band, 1. 

His wholehearted application to his work brings 
merited reward. Here knowledge is his aim, and he 
seeks it relentlessly — yet there is time for his music, 
and, lately, Em has been acquiring other social amen- 
ities — of which we fully approve. 



21 




Edward T. Brown 

General Horticulture Marblehead 

1916. Kolony Klub; Freshman Class Treasurer; 

Hockey, 1, 2. 

Prominent in Class activities and important as chef 

and valet in his apartment, the good natured Brownie 

is invaluable to us. What he has so well done here 

will surely bring its reward. 



Walter M. Bryant 

Animal Husbandry Hyde Park 

1912. Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 
Coming here with advantages of a literary back- 
ground, Walt has shown himself to be a very en- 
thusiastic student in a distinctly different field. The 
ardent spirit which he gives to his work indicates 
splendid achievement hereafter. 





Kenneth H. Buell 

Dairy Manufactures Petersham 

1915. Kolony Klub; K. O. Club; Dairy Club, 2; 
Band, 1; Baseball, 2; Basketball, 1, 2; Shorthorn, Staff 
Assistant, 2; Student Council, 2. 

Doubtless Ken will make sizeable holes in the in- 
terference he meets with in life. He has a congenial 
personality, and placement training revealed the in- 
herent determination of a good worker. 



Harold F. Carlson 

Floriculture Brighton 

1914. Alpha Tau Gamma, President, 2; Hor- 
ticultural Show, 1, exhibit, 2; Basketball, 1, 2; Stu- 
dent Council, 2. 

Alpha Tau Gamma recognized his capacity for 
leadership. Hal's asociates respect him for his char- 
acteristic responsibilty, fairness, and willingness to 
cooperate. Furthermore, there was always Ann — our 
sincerest wishes for your happiness. 




22 



Hugo E. T. Carlson 

General Horticulture West Roxbury 

1914, Track, 1, 2; Horticultural Show, 2. 
So eager for learning is Hugo that he adds classes 
to his curriculum. Previous experience has given him 
a practical and useful knowledge of landscaping. His 
steady pursuit of problems to a satisfactory solution 
is a worthy trait. 





Alfred M. Chace 



Dairy Manufactures 

191 S. Alpha Tau Gamma; 
President, 2; Athletic Council, 
ball, 1 , Captain, 2 ; Basketball, 

Prominent in Class affairs and activities, Al will 
be remembered for his boisterous good nature, his 
generosity, and his capability on the gridiron. 



South Dartmouth 
Student Council, 1, 
1, President, 2; Foot- 
1. 



Robert A. Chapin 

Animal Husbandry, Special Sheffield 

1917. Kolony Klub, Historian, 2; Animal Hus- 
bandry Club, 2. 

A welcoming hand and a ready smile make Bob a 
pleasant companion. We wonder if it is the Green- 
field air that has such a noticeable effect upon him? 





Nelson C. Christensen 

Vegetable Gardening Wilson, Connecticut 

1914. Alpha Tau Gamma; Football, 1, 2. 
Chris, as a guard on the eleven, always hit the line 
squarely. As a practical vegetable grower he will 
meet all exigencies in the same manner. His deter- 
mination to conclude whatever he starts is remark- 
able. Remember the Deerfield Rally talk? 



23 




Ralph D. Cooley 

Animal Husbandry West Granville 

1916. Cross Country, 1, 2; Track, 1; Agronomy 
Club, 1, 2 ; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 

Applying himself diligently, Ralph has made a fine 
record for himself in his studies. Our fine Cross 
Country team was strengthened by his presence. An 
authority on Ayrshires, he ever gladly exposes their 
merits. 



Harold W. Corkum 



Animal Husbandry 
1913. Shorthorn, 



Sutton 
Statistical Editor, 2; Animal 
Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 

Steadied by wider experience and greater respon- 
sibilities, Hal is frequently a much needed balance 
for his classmates. He enjoys thorough discussions 
with his professors of problems that arouse his prac- 
tical interests. 





Pardon W. Cornell 

General Horticulture Dartmouth 

1914. Kolony Klub; Shorthorn, Activities Editor, 
2; Football, 1, 2. 

Puddy apparently enjoys the icy blasts of winter 
while most of us on the campus shiver. Always 
ready to assist others and ever a good student, he has 
a marked capacity for success. 



Alfred M. Davenport, Jr. 

Floriculture Watertown 

191J. Kolony Klub, Secretary, 2. 

AI says he came for a good time, and his acknow- 
ledged attendance on six dances a week would in- 
dicate success. However that may be, his blond hair 
must be partially responsible for all the feminine 
company he enjoys. 




24 



Russell B. Davis 

Animal Husbandry Westport 

1917. Animal Husbandry Club, 2. 

Through his friendly ways Russ readily became a 
part of our school life this year. His activities at 
the "Mem" Building will long be remembered. 





Ellison D. Dodge 



Floriculture Belchertown 

1914. Horticultural Show, 1, 2. 

Why Buzz? We cannot surely tell, but it may be 
that his size coupled with his constant occupation 
with one thing or another — such as tales of his 
hometown which often interrupted class routine, to 
our enjoyment — gained for him the title. 



John G. Donovan 



General Horticulture Cohasset 

1914. Basketball, 1; Horticultural Show, 1, 2; 
Dance Committee, 1. 

We are told that Shotgun is highly rated as a 
public speaker — probably a reflection of his uncle, 
the Governor's, abiUty. If a smile is truly indicative 
of happiness, may he ever wear one as he does so 
frequently. 





William E. Doty 

Floriculture West Springfield 

1917. Kolony Klub. 

Even his fraternity brothers know little of Bill, 
for he is most unobtrusive. He pays exclusive at- 
tention to his own affairs — which many might profit- 
ably exemplify. We learned that he is well ac- 
quainted with nature; his glance is observant and 
quick. 



25 




Lloyd A. Douty 



Animal Husbandry Worcester 

1916. Animal Husbandry Club, 2. 

Having won fame as a public speaker at North 
HigK, Hank merits our commendation for his con- 
scientious efforts here in overcoming such obstacles 
as genetics. 



Albert O. Fischer, Jr. 

Poultry Husbandry Vineyard Haven 

1914. Alpha Tau Gamma, Vice President, 2; Foot- 
ball, 1, 2; Basketball, 1; Baseball, 2; Poultry Club, 
Secretary, 2; Senior Reception Committee, 1. 

The jovial spokesman of the division is Al. His 
greeting might falsely indicate a Fascist relationship. 
On the athletic field, he plays in all seriousness and 
gives earnest support to his team. 





R. Everette Fish 

Animal Husbandry Gill 

1914. Football, 1. 

Ev has safely sailed the rough waters of commu- 
ting, placement training, and academic! life. It is 
our wish that the future fulfill the present promise 
of good fortune. 



Francis E. Fournier 

Animal Husbandry North Dartmouth 

1916. Kolony Klub; Football, 1, 2; Animal Hus- 
bandry Club, 2. 

Nonchalant Fran accepts obstacles casually. He is 
most serious when wrestling. Incidentally, if there 
still be any doubt, we would establish the fact that 
a ham is (or was) part of a pig. 




26 



Daniel A. S. Gleize 

General Horticulture Stockbridge 

191 S. Cross Country, 1, 2. 

Out of the Berkshires strode thoughtful Danny 
with his khaki book bag over his shoulder. Many 
classes have been made interesting by his pointed 
questions. Surely his "why" attitude will enrich his 
life through an increased knowledge. 





August J. Gomes 

General Horticulture Plymouth 

1912. Alpha Tau Ganama; Horticultural Show, 2. 
Lefty entertains us by poking fun at his classmates 

in a blustering, good spirited manner. He is an 

authority on Aboriculture, for he repaired, sprayed, 

and fed elms in Plymouth. 



Thomas J. Goodwin 

General Horticulture Newton Upper Falls 

1916. Football, 1, 2; Track, 2; Horticultural 
Show, 1, 2; Stockbridge Winter Carnival Chairman, 
2. 

In his freshman year, Tom upheld our tradition 
in the Deerfield game. Lately he took a vital interest 
in the first Winter Carnival and helped to lay the 
foundation of another Stockbridge tradition. 





Malcolm L. Graham 

Floriculture Bradford, Pennsylvania 

1916. Kolony Klub, Treasurer, 2; Basketball, I, 
2; Cross Country, 2; Horticultural Show, 1, Refresh- 
ment Booth, 2; Shorthorn, Staff Assistant, 2. 

A true representative of the coal and oil regions, 
Mac is always ready with information on these sub- 
jects. We found him ever willing to assist. No 
wonder the Kolony Klub telephone rings with his 
popularity. 



27 




Elliott D. Hall 

Animal Husbandry Dudley 

1917. Kolony Klub; Animal Husbandry Club, 2; 

Baseball, 2. 

Twitch seldom, if ever, uses grindstone methods, 

but he does well in his work. His capacity for 

learning quickly will prove an asset both to himself 

and to his associates. 



Roland Hall 

Floriculture New Bedford 

191 S. Kolony Klub, Marshal, 2; Student Council, 
1; Class Vice President, 2; Class President, 1; Short- 
horn, Staff Assistant, 2; Dance Committee, 1. 

Remember the "buttercup" curl so well trained 
by certain small fingers? Sleepy is reported an ex- 
cellent adviser on matters of the heart — and why 
not? But, seriously, our stalwart has such manly 
characteristics that success is predetermined. 





William A. Harris 

Pomology Springfield 

1886. Horticultural Show, Assisted in past three 

shows, exhibited fruit in 193 5. 

His absorption in his studies should yield truly 

remarkable returns. So serious is Bill that we arc 

only aware of his presence when he freely offers his 

assistance on class problems. 



Donald Harrison 

Pomology Jamaica Plain 

1916. Shorthorn, Literary Editor, 2. 
A leader among the Pomologists, Don's spirited 
friendliness is contagious. We admire his talented 
sales-talk — as the Fords go by. He and a certain 
blond (don't misunderstand!) are almost inseparable. 




Edwin H. Hartley 

Animal Husbandry Westfield 

1915. K. O. Club, Chairman of Recreation Com- 
mittee, 2; Basketball, 1, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 
1, 2. 

Wc address him as Shorty, but be not misled. He 
towers above us. Ed is an enthusiastic wearer of the 
four leaf clover and a fine student. "We admire his 
candid spirit. 





Ann Haskell 

Floriculture Lynn 

1916. S. C. S., Secretary-treasurer, 2; Student 
Council, Secretary, 2; Horticultural Show exhibit, 2. 
Fortunate is Ann, for her charming personality 
secures many friends. Her classmates will never for- 
get her snowy irruptions. And the mention of 
Hal should not be taken amiss. 



Hammond C. Hosmer 

Poultry Husbandry Arlington 

1912. Cross Country, 1, 2; Hockey, 2; Poultry 

Club, 2; Freshman Reception Committee, 2. 

Hammy is a reliable, sincere friend. May the 

weekly trips to Arlington lay the foundation for a 

lasting happiness. Whatever he undertakes will 

surely be accomplished. 





John W. Howe, Jr. 

Dairy Manufactures HoUis, New Hampshire 

1912. K. O. Club, 2; Basketball, 2; Dairy Club, 
2, 

How well John applies himself to his work we 
may judge from his good use of his time on Campus. 
The humorous side of his nature displays itself fre- 
quently and enjoyably. 



29 




Roger A. Hunt 

Animal Husbandry Leicester 

1916. Kolony Klub; Basketball, 1, 2; Baseball, 2; 
Animal Husbandry Club, 2. 

Being a landlubber, Lucky knows nothing of shore 
leave in strange ports. However, his life is replete 
with social affairs. But, somehow, they do not in- 
terfere with his studying and class attendance. 



Frank Innes 

General Horticulture Barre, Vermont 

191 S. Alpha Tau Gamma, Treasurer, 2; Cheer 

Leader, 2. 

Under Frank's able leadership the cheering section 

encouraged our eleven with many lusty yells. His 

standing in scholarship and in athletics well indicates 

his ability. 





Nicholas B. Jacobson 

Animal Husbandry, Special New York, New York 
1912. Agronomy Club, 1 ; Animal Husbandry 

Club, 2. 

His devotion to the good he finds in life and his 

impatience with all that stands in its way is an 

inspiration to his friends. He chooses to be a rebel; 

we choose to consider him fondly as a fellow man. 



Charles W. Jacoby 



General Horticulture Newtonville 

1 9 1 S. Kolony Klub, Vice President, 2 ; Hockey, 
1, 2; Horticultural Show, 1, 2. 

Because of obstacles to his inter-class transporta- 
tion, we have, fortunately, seen more of Wes. His 
Thayer Academy training wa^ of great benefit to our 
Hockey team. The ease with which he finds satis- 
factory employment is notable. 




30 



Carl W. Jekanowski 

Dairy Manufactures Hadley 

1916. Alpha Tau Gamma; Basketball, 1, 2; Dairy 

Club, 1 , 2 ; Animal Husbandry Club, 1 , 2 . 

We do not know Jek very well, for he is puzzling- 

ly nonchalant. However, he has proven himself a 

capable student and a good athlete. 





Paul Jenkins 

Animal Husbandry VoUaston 

1916. Basketball, I, Captain, 2; Animal Hus- 
bandry Club, 2. 

This city bred lad has taken to Animal Husbandry 
as a duckling takes to water. Jenkie's scholastic 
ability is outstanding, and he is a good athlete. His 
achievements here are indicative of subsequent 
success. 



J. Henry Jennings 



Poultry Husbandry Shelton, Connecticut 

1910. Baseball, 2; Poultry Club, 2. 

Because he takes inventory after the eggs hatch, 
John is chief statistician of the department. After 
successfully putting himself through school, we know 
he will make good. 




William J, Jennings 

Floriculture South Natick 

1914. Cross Country, 1, 2. 

We know little of Joe from himself. But in him 
we see a conscientious student and a perservcring 
runner who will carry on against odds. And there 
must be a charming reason for those visits home. 




31 




Charles D. Keefe, Jr. 

Poultry Husbandry Bellows Falls, Vermont 

1915. Alpha Tau Gamma; Football, 1, 2; 

Hockey, 1, 2; Basketball, 1, 2; Baseball, 2; Student 

Council Vice President, 2; Poultry Club President, 2; 

K. O. Club, 1, 2; Freshman Dance Committee, 1. 
Chick's personality reflects the confidence of one 

who knows his work. Fortunate are we to have 

associations with this amiable fellow. 



Jason T. Kelley 

Floriculture, Special Framingham 

1916. Kolony Klub, House Manager, 2; Hockey, 
Assistant Manager, 1, Manager, 2. 

Though Irish of tongue, witty J — who makes 
classes uproarious at limes with his remarks — vigor- 
ously denies such descent. It's his smiling manner 
that takes the edge from otherwise caustic expressions. 
We cannot refrain from wishing — "Orchids to you, 
Framingham!" 





Ransom P. Kelley 

Vegetable Gardening, Special Fairfield, Maine 

1913. Alpha Tau Gamma, Chairman of House 
Committee, 2; Horticultural Show, 1, 2. 

Kel (or should we address him more formally 
since his recent marriage?) usually bustles into class 
Monday morning from a pleasant week-end on liis 
Maine farm. Happiness to you and your bride. Sir! 



E. Richard Kelly 



Gilbertville 
Animal Husbandry 



Animal Husbandry 

1914. Alpha Tau Gam: 
Club, 1, 2; Football, 2. 

Here comes Dick, just ahead of the bell again! It 
seems that he cannot see well out of one eye. Per- 
haps there is a place for paddles. 




32 



Frederick O. Lawrence 

Dairy Manufactures Weymouth 

1914- Cross Country, Manager, 2; Basketball, 1; 

Baseball, 2; Dairy Club, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 

1. 

We admire Fred's pleasant disposition and respect 

his honest, generous nature. Surely the effort he has 

so earnestly made here is the foundation of future 

achievement. 





John J. Loncar 

Poultry Husbandry Worcester 

1915. Kolony Klub; Poultry Club, 2; K. O. 
Club, 2. 

Swimming is John's favorite recreation, and his 
interest in photography is a close second. He posses- 
ses many fine qualities, as his friends are ever willing 
to testify. 



H. Pearson Macintosh 

General Horticulture Longmeadow 

1914. Shorthorn, Staff Assistant, 2; Football, 1, 

2; Hockey, 1, 2; Horticultural Show, 1, 2. 

Mac is an outstanding athlete — a three letter man, 

in fact. His social activity and his domestic training 

demand recognition. His earnest, genial nature has 

made him many friends. 





Kenneth Randall Mason 

Dairy Manufactures Maiden 

191 S. Kolony Klub; Hockey, I, 2; Shorthorn, 
Athletic Editor, 2 ; Collegian Reporter, 2 ; Dairy 
Club, 1, 2; Dance Committees, 1, 2. 

One of the fastest things on ice is Ken — if seeing 
is believing! This well-dressed dairyman is prom- 
inent in student activities, which indicates his popu- 
larity. 



33 




James D. N. Mayo 

Poultry Husbandry Arlington 

1911. Alpha Tau Gamma; Poultry Club, 1. 
Jim is one who has learned to appreciate the value 
of money. He has an understanding of business that 
assures him the success we desire him to make. 



Sherwood A. Moore 

Greenkeeping Leeds 

1915. Horticultural Show, 1, 2. 

Dickie is a smiling fellow with a yen for sur- 
veying and general problems. He is a proficient 
member of the well known "three musketeers", our 
only remaining greenkeepers. 





Earl L. Morey, Jr. 

Animal Husbandry Sturbridge 

1917. Kolony Klub; Football, 1, 2; Boxing, 1; 

Baseball, 2; Agronomy Club, 1; Animal Husbandry 

Club, 1, 2; Class Treasurer, 1, 2; Dance Committee, 

1, 2. 

Though rather quiet. Earl has become one of our 

outstanding men. He has the good faculty of always 

keeping himself occupied. That, doubtless, will be 

of real value to him. 



Katherine B. Offutt 

Animal Husbandry Southboro 

1915. S. C. S., Vice President and Sergeant at 

Arms, 2; Class Secretary, 2. 

Kay's ability, courage, friendliness, and charming 

boyish air have been to both classmates and faculty 

a constant source of amazement and inspiration. 




34 



Oscar E. Olson 

Dairy Manufactures Belchertown 

1915. Dairy Club, 1, 2; Outing Club, 1, 2. 
"Quiz today fellows?" With these words Oscar 
usually announces his presence, and his scholastic 
attainments suggest that he is always prepared for 
that exigency. Above all, we enjoy his company. 





Warren R. Parker 

Pomology Braintree 

1914. Shorthorn, Assistant Editor, 2; Agronomy 
Club, 1, 2. 

Warren is a quiet and industrious student respected 
by his classmates for his reliable knowledge of his 
major subject. The blond member of a well-known 
partnership, he is a loyal friend and a pleasant com- 
rade. 



James W. Patten, Jr. 

Animal Husbandry Sterling 

1916. K. O. Club, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 
1, 2. 

Jim's smile is plainly visible, but his stored up 
humor frequently takes us by surprise. Studies do 
not ruffle his composure. His alertness at lectures 
accounts for scholastic success. 





V. Lewis Payson 

Greenkeeping North Dartmouth 

1915. Horticultural Show, 2; Football, Assistant 
Manager, 1. 

The numerous friendships Viva made here are re- 
liable indicators of his congenial nature. His sound 
judgment is well shown by his thoughtful planning. 
We know he will grow fine turf.

Robert E. Pratt 

Animal Husbandry Florence 

1915. 

Bob likes work and tackles it courageously. He 
firmly believes in the saying, "If at first you don't 
succeed, try, try again." 



John F. Prentice 



Animal Husbandry Plymouth 

1914. Alpha Tau Gamma, Sergeant at Arms, 2; 
Football, 1, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 2. 

The misfortune of illness has disturbed his educa- 
tional routine. But John has come through with our 
respect for his courage, his quiet capability, and his 
obliging friendliness. 





Merrick B. Price 

General Horticulture South Weymouth 

1915. Shorthorn, Photographic Editor, 2; Horti- 
cultural Show, 1, 2. 

At the Horticultural Show Red was a capable assis- 
tant, and much of the success of the Department's 
exhibit was due to his efforts. Photography is his 
avocation, and, though generally quiet, he delights 
to talk of his hobby. 



Robert H. Ralston 



Framingham 
Horticultural Show, 2; Glee 



General Horticulture 

1915. Orchestra, 1; 
Club, 2. 

Bob is a noted hunter and spends much time fol- 
lowing his hounds. Consequently, he enjoyed the 
trips to Mt. Toby. After we made his acquaintance, 
we found him good company. 




36 



Raymond W. Richardson 

Pomology "West Brookfield 

1915. Cross Country, 2 ; Track, 2 ; Agronomy 
Club, 1 , Vice President, 2 ; Dance Committee, 2 ; 
Animal Husbandry, 1, 2; Outing Club, 1, 2; Glee 
Club, 2. 

Ray, a fellow native despite his continual praise of 
Connecticut, is admired by his fellow pomologists 
for his indifference, his expressed knowledge of fruit 
growing, and his determination to succeed. 





Richard A. Robbins 

General Horticulture South Natick 

1913. Football, 1. 2; Basketball, 2; Hockey, 1, 2; 
Freshman Dance Committee, 2. 

Dick occupies himself seriously with various ath- 
letic activities. We shall long remember the games 
in w^hich he gave so much. Nonchalant and friendly, 
his company is most enjoyable. 



William C. Ross 

Dairy Manufactures North Quincy 

1917. Hockey, 1, 2. 

Supposedly Bill utilizes his time out of class with 
research work in Flint Laboratory. His constant 
scholastic excellence supports this supposition and 
foreshadows his success. 





John J. Ruda, Jr. 



Dairy Manufactures Dudley 

1917. Basketball Manager, 2; Shorthorn, Business 
Manager, 2; Athletic Council, 2; Dairy Club, 1, 2; 
Animal Husbandry Club, 1, Treasurer, 2. 

His capacity for doing all assignments well has 
demonstrated his reliability and won our sincere res- 
pect. John is recognized as an important member 
of the Class, and we are glad to have known his 
fine, friendly personality. 




Donald Samson 

General Horticulture Florence 

1915. Kolony Klub; Football, 2. 

Silent, attentive, and immaculate — these character- 
istics are the keys to his fine nature. Don is a good 
student and a good companion. 



Clinton F. Savery 

General Horticulture Marion 

191 S. Football, 1; Track, 2. 

After completing his first year with the Class of 
193 5, Clint joined the C. C. C. for a while. Then 
he came to finish his work with us, skilled in the use 
of an axe, interested in Northampton, and liked by 
those who know him. 





Barbara E. Schulte 

Floriculture Tyngsboro 

1915. S. C. S., President, 2; Shorthorn, Art Edi- 
tor, 2; Horticultural Show, 1, 2. 

Charming B it is who gaily trips from class to 
class displaying such quiet zest in life that we who 
know her are bound to share her enthusiasm. Feeling 
that we owe much to her inspiration, we must sin- 
cerely wish her ever the best. 



Lauchlan A. Smith 



Vegetable Gardening, Special 
1914. 



Westport 



Although this was his first year with us, Smitty 
readily made a plice for himself. His quiet friend- 
liness reveals an anxiety to become independently 
established. 




38 



Philip F. Smith 

Floriculture Methuen 

191 S. Cross Country, 1, 2; Track, I, 2; Horti- 
cultural Show, 1, 2. 

Though neither his hair nor his name are remark- 
ably distinguishing, his lively personality — which 
frequently expresses itself in laboratory periods — is. 
Congenial, red-headed Phil will get along towards his 
goal, for he has perserverance. 





John D. Sprague 



Poultry Husbandry Weston 

1916. Poultry Club, 2. 

John is a reserved classmate well-liked by those 
who know him. His scholastic record indicates his 
very real ability. 



Robert F. Strong 

Dairy Manufactures Allston 

1916. Manager, Cross Country, 2; Shortborti, 

Staff Assistant, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1; Dairy 

Club, 2. 

Quiet and studious as he is, we were slow to make 

the acquaintance of likeable Paul. We often wonder 

if he will return to Danbury to renew Placement 

friendships? 





Richard C. Sturtevant 

General Horticulture Halifax 

1916. Horticultural Show, 1, 2. 

While we played, Dick worked. This willingness 
to sacrifice pleasure for an opportunity to prepare 
himself for the future well illustrates his earnest 
purpose. To such, success is assured. 



33 




John Sutherland 

Pomology Springfield 

1914. Shorthorn, Staff Assistant, 2. 

John inspires us with his friendliness, his wit, and 
his ability to put up with his notoriously playful 
classmates. "With many accomplishments, he approves 
of life as a song and only regrets his vain attempts 
to sell Plymouths. 



Gordon M. Taylor 

Animal Husbandry Granby 

1916. 

If traveling some distance westward you may find 
Granby. He has a reputation for deer hunting, and 
following a woodland trail gives him great pleasure. 





William E. Thomas 

Animal Husbandry Hadlcy 

191 S. Animal Husbandry Club, 2. 

Discussing basketball is one of Bill's chiet enjoy- 
ments. But we see little of him since he commutes. 
Sincere and conservative, he will progress unaided. 



Ernest H. Thorpe 



Framingham 

Football, 1 ; 

Student Council, 2; Ani- 



Animal Husbandry 

1916. Kolony Klub, President, 2 
Basketball, 2; Baseball, 2 
mal Husbandry Club, 2. 

Smiling, curly-haired Ernie has won himself many 
friends. He has been very active in furthering the 
social interests of his Klub and of his Class. 




40 



Andrew Timoshuk 

Greenkeeping Whitescone, New York 

1915. Agronomy Club, I. 

An authority on golf and grass, Andy won renown 
for his success in playing a par 71 course in 73 under 
par. All in all, he is a very likeable fellow with a 
cheery smile. 





Frederick Tompkins 

Poultry Husbandry Lowell 

191 J. Poultry Club, 2. 

Romantic Fred enjoys the wee hours of day and 
night most in bed. His motto, "To the nest — Try 
hard!" will prove helpful, we hope. 



Edwin A. Toth 

Poultry Husbandry "Wallingford, Connecticut 

1916. Kolony Klub; Football, 1, 2; Basketball, 1, 

2; K. O. Club, 1, 2; Poultry Club, 2. 

When not attending classes and such, Ed may be 

found haunting the "Mem" building. His lusty 

sneeze is as disturbing as a March blast. 





Arnold V. Trible 

General Horticulture Worcester 

1913. Basketball, 1, 2; Band. 1, 2. 

As a member of the colorful College band, Arnie 
did much to increase its volume of music while 
wrapped in his huge bass horn. He may yet compete 
with the greenkeepers. 




Herman Waldecker, Jr. 

Floriculture Braintree 

1916, 

A very retiring member of our group is Pete. But, 
in spite o£ his quiet self-containment, we now feel 
that we know him, and his likeable nature leaves a 
pleasant impression. We admire his independent 
spirit. 



William G. Waldron 

General Horticulture Pittsficid 

1917. Horticultural Show, 2. 

"Going to Amherst?" inquired Bill unwittingly 
(and unfortunately!) of a cruising car. As a mem- 
ber of the bachelor apartments, he is rapidly qualify- 
ing for the rating of mother's helper. 





Walter D. Williams 

Poultry Husbandry Stamford, Connecticut 

1915. Alpha Tau Gamma, Club Historian, 2; 

Dance Committee, 2; Poultry Club, 2. 

Hour after hour he diverts interested listeners 

with his Placement experiences in Spencer. Jocular 

Cy is well liked. 



Grace R. Yukl 

Floriculture Turner's Falls 

1911. Horticultural Show, 1, 2. 

How easy it is to understand why Grace is so 
happily married! "We are glad to have had her help- 
ful, encouraging company. May her happiness con- 
stantly increase.

FOOTBALL 

With eight lettermen returning to claim their positions, Coaches "Red" Ball and 
Alden P. Tuttle filled the vacancies with abundant new and promising material. The 
team was successfully organized and gave our first opponents a surprising upset, although 
two strenously contested defeats followed. The next game was a decided victory for 
our team. But then they lost a close match which did not, however, dull their spirit. 
Later they played a scoreless tie and, finally, closed the season by winning their objec- 
tive game. A favorable record, resulting from fine morale and splendid sportsmanship, 
is the notable achievement of Captain Chace and his followers. 

Lettermen are as follows: 

Seniors: Captain Chace, Allen, Alton, Christensen, Cornell, Fischer, Fournier, Keefe, 
Macintosh, Morey, Robbins, Toth; Freshmen: Boyce, Bush, Cunningham, Hair, Tucker.

CROSS COUNTRY 

Under the guidance of Coach Llewellyn Derby, Captain Fred Anable, and Manager 
Frederick Lawrence the cross country team established an undefeated record, the first 
in the history of the school. The squad of thirty men was composed of a few veterans 
and several promising freshmen. In the Senior Class letters were won by Captain Fred 
Anable, Randolph Blackmer, Daniel Gleize, Hammond Hosmer, Raymond Richardson, 
Philip Smith and Manager Lawrence. Freshmen earning letters were Captain-elect 
George Baker, Douglas Graves and Ralph Harris.

HOCKEY 

The Stockbridge Hockey squad played a sxiccessful season and made only a slightly 
less spectacular showing than the Cross Country Team. Some of the games were met 
without an opportunity for practice because the ice was unsuitable. However, from two 
tied games, the team progressed under Coach William Bullock to win their following 
contests. During the Winter Carnival they played a splendid game and defeated the 
State Freshmen. 

Letter awards to Seniors: Edward Brown, Wesley Jacoby, Pearson Macintosh, Ken- 
neth Mason, Richard Robbins, William Ross, and Manager Jason Kelley; Freshmen: Don-

BASKETBALL 

Coached by "Red"Ball and led into an active, successful season by Captain Paul 
Jenkins, our team won seven of their scheduled games. Supposedly handicapped by lack 
of court practice and material, the outlook for the team was dull. However, it subse- 
quently proved itself the most capable since 1930. With efficient supervision and fullest 
cooperation from the players, letters were earnestly won by Captain Paul Jenkins, Edwin 
Hartley, Carl Jekanowski, and Manager John Ruda of the Class of 1936. Among the 
Freshmen, Captain-elect Frank Wojtklewicz, Walter Wanszyk, and Robert Eisenhauer 
were awarded letters.

WINTER TRACK 

Our Winter Track Team made a very creditable showing in spite of its inability to 
capture first honors. Competing with the State students in the inter-class meet, the 
team fought for a deserved third place. In the second, a triangular meet with Freshmen 
of State and Amherst College in competition, Stockbridge won second place. The final 
event with Wilbraham and Suifield Academies was as successful, for our team again took 
second honors. 

The following trackmen received letters: Seniors; Captain Fred Anable, Philip 
Smith and Manager Frederick Lawrence; Freshmen; Captain-elect Arthur Hartshorn, 
Sam Lowery and George Baker.

lips. And each member wishes personally to express his earnest hope that the future 
will more than fulfill all present expectations of splendid achievement and that it will

AGRONOMY CLUB 

Under the able guidance of President Frank S. Bishop the beneficial activities of the 
year reached their climax in the discussion of the relation of agronomy to agriculture. 
Many earnest students attended the meetings to hear authorities expose their particular 
work. Among the most important lecturers were Mr. Ralph Donalson, whose subject 
was "Potatoes in Particular", and Mr. John Abbot, who answered the question "Do you

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY CLUB 

Having been a recognized activity for several years, the club sponsors lectures by 
capable persons on topics of general agricultural interest. Since both State and Stock- 
bridge men support it, the attendance is always large. This year a judging contest was 
held, and Nelson Newell, '37 won first prize. 

A splendid program was presented by the following: 

Mr. J. B. Parker, Washington, D. C. 

Mr. Lewis C. Watt, S. S. A. 1928, Medfield State Hospital 

Mr. Orrin S. Pierson, Otisville, New York.

DAIRY CLUB 

The Dairy Club was organized to foster intimate relations among the dairy men, to 
broaden their concept of the business by engagaging outside speakers, and to promote 
discussion of timely problems within the group. 

Professor and Mrs. Fransden were instrumental in outlining this season's successful 
program and in obtaining the desired lecturers. 

A most interesting appreciation of the Physiological Conference in Russia was given 
by Dr. Mitchell of the nutrition department who attended.

POULTRY CLUB 

At a social given by Poultry professors on November 6, 193 5, Professor. J. C. 
Graham suggested the reorganization of the club. This aroused such enthusiasm that 
officers were immediately elected. With the first session since 1929, the new members 
successfully attempted to promote interest in the poultry industry. Constant assistance 
from the department enabled club members to enjoy several educational lectures. Some 
of these were: 

Dr. Charles L. Gibbs, M.S.C. Veterinary Science Department 
Dr. K. L. Bullis, M.S.C. Veterinary Science Department

The STOGKBRIDGE PLAYERS Present 

THE BLACK FLAMINGO 

by Sam Janney 

Glittering jewels entice peasants to attempt fiendish crimes and lure French nobles 
to recoup their losses in this stirring drama of the days just following the fall ofi the 
Bastile. The social classes of France are all involved in this rapidly moving interpreta- 
tion of the mysterious disappearance of the Queen's priceless necklace — a string of dia- 
monds which even the bloody revenues of that corrupt government could not afford. 

interest is intriguingly sustained by the strange Cagliostro and the scarcely less 
singular Trigaud. Horror is ever imminent but mostly avoided. Not soon shall we 
forget the suspended weirdness of the theme which a ghostly violinist intensifies nor 
the skillful portrayal by classmates under the able direction of Mr. Harold W. Smart, 
who is well assisted by Mr. James Robertson, Jr.

OUR EXTENSION SERVICE 



Feeling that graduation should but mark an advance in 
our search for kno^vledge, it seemed very appropriate to 
indicate the educational opportunities provided by the Ex- 
tension Service and by the Waltham Experiment Station. 
Through them we are enabled to keep in touch with the 
progress made in our respective fields of endeavor, and it 
is in the sense of their relation to the College that we may 
always retain an active connection ivith it. 

Editor's Note. 



A progressive nation such as ours realizes that education should not stop when an 
individual has completed college or other school training. Therefore, we find innumer- 
able adult education programs which are available to citizens. 

To the Stockbridge School of Agriculture graduate, cooperative extension work in 
agriculture offers an unusual opportunity to continue education after graduation. But 
before outlining these opportunities, let me sketch for you something of the history and 
organization of extension service work. 

Popular education of farming people, known as agricultural extension work, had its 
beginning in the early agricultural societies, the first one being organized about 1785. 
In 1792 the Massachusetts Society for Promoting Agriculture recommended that "the 
members in different parts of the state should meet at stated times in places convenient 
to themselves and invite the aid of others who are desirous of forwarding improvements 
in agriculture." This society as early as 1812 sent out letters to stimulate farmers! in 
improving agriculture. These letters were read by town clerks at town meetings and 
by the clergy. 

In 1839 there was begun a series of weekly meetings in the hall of the Massachu- 
setts House of Representatives for the purpose of discussing agricultural questions. 

When the Massachusetts State Board of Agriculture was established in 18 52 one of 
the duties of the secretary was to deliver lectures on the practice and science of agricul- 
ture. Charles L. Flint, for whom Flint Laboratory was named, was the secretary of this 
board. 

The state board of agriculture disseminated information through their annual vol- 
ume known as "Agriculture of Massachusetts" and also printed circulars on renovation 
of pastures, grain crops, fruits, fencing, cattle husbandry, diseases of vegetation, and 
culture of grasses. These were distributed to teachers to be read publicly in schools and 
loaned out from week to week to be read in the families in the farming districts. 

In 185 5, a speaker stated that "women should be invited to attend the meetings of 
these agricultural clubs and some subjects such as butter making should be of special 
interest to them and that the state would do well to give financial aid to the clubs." The 
clubs referred to were local and county farmers' clubs. 

Farmers' Institutes Develop 

About this time farmers' institutes were developing in many states. In fact, by 
1890 institutes or equivalent public meetings were estabJshed on a more or less perma- 
nent basis in twenty-six states. In some cases these institutes were conducted by the 
state board of agriculture, in others by the land grant college, and in others by private 
organizations interested in agriculture. 



67 



In 1889 there was introduced in Congress a bill providing for federal support of 
farmers' institutes. Up until this time farmers' institutes were supported with state, 
county, or individual funds. Our own Dr. Kenyon L. Butterfield played a considerable 
part in the development of these institutes and in later agricultural education. 

Of course, during all of this time the land-grant colleges had been gradually devel- 
oping their extension work. In fact, by 1905 extension work in the colleges had become 
sufficiently important to attract the attention of the Association of American Agricul- 
ural Colleges and Experiment Stations. At that time they created a standing committee 
on extension work. By 1910 more than thirty institutions had organized extension de- 
partments. 

In 1914 Congress passed the Smith-Lever Extension Act and its acceptance by the 
states put the extension service work on an entirely new basis. Naturally with this new 
organization in the field the farmers' institutes gradually declined. 

The Smith-Lever Cooperative Extension Act provides — 

"that cooperative agricultural extension work shall consist of giving instruction and 
practical demonstrations in agriculture and home economics to persons not attending or 
resident in said colleges in the several communities and imparting to such persons in- 
formation on said subjects through field demonstrations, publications, and otherwise, and 
that this work shall be carried on in such manner as may be mutually agreed upon by 
the secretary of agriculture and the state agricultural college or colleges receiving the 
benefits of this act." 

Each state receives a set amount of federal funds and additional funds on the basis 
of its rural population. A certain portion of these funds must, however, be offset by 
appropriations from the state legislature or by contributions from county, college, or in- 
dividuals within the state. 

All Counties But One Start Work 

In 1914 there were sixteen extension service workers at the Massachusetts Agricul- 
tural College. By the end of 1918 all counties of Massachusetts, with the exception of 
Suffolk, had formed organizations to conduct extension work. Dukes and Nantucket 
counties cooperatively employed agricultural and home economics agents. If a county 
employed only one worker, it was usually an agricultural agent. Whether the next 
worker was a home demonstration or a club agent depended upon the character of the 
work in the individual county. 

Work with homemakers and the young people had been developing so that with the 
passage of the Smith-Lever Act they were made a definite part of extension work; the 
work with young people is now known as 4-H club work. 

The impetus given extension work by the war conditions of 1917 and 1918 proved 
the value of organized aid to farmers. In 1918 the farm bureaus in Massachusetts began 
to re-organize in accordance with that year's legislation which made these organizations 
public agencies. It was from this re-organized system that the present extension system 
in Massachusetts grew. Today there is an organized extension force in Massachusetts 
of thirty-four state workers and sixty-eight county workers. 

A Cooperative Enterprise Publicly Supported 

Cooperative extension work is, as has been pointed out, a cooperative enterprise by 
the United States Department of Agriculture at Washington, the land-grant colleges in 
the various states, and the extension services in the counties. Being organized in this 
manner and since it is supported by public funds, the service is free to all citizens. 

Heading the work up for the nation as a whole then is the extension division of the 
United States Department of Agricu ture. The workers there disseminate information 
and assist state workers in the organizing and coordination of the work. 

The administrative officers and specialists from the state extension services in turn 
assist the county workers in organizing and in disseminating the necessary subject matter 
material; this latter being done through printed material, radio, and numerous other 
methods. There is no need to say that the knowledge of the extension service workers 



68 



is based on the work of the agricultural experiment stations and upon practical demon- 
strations in the field. 

The county worker acts as an organizer or clearing house for the information which 
is available. With the help of the state workers, these county workers schedule study 
groups according to the needs and desires of the county or community. They arrange 
for demonstrations to prove better practices and then arrange meetings to bring these 
demonstrations to the public. They distribute printed or mimeographed leaflets. And 
the)'^ of course give individual service through farm and home visits. 

Make Contacts Through County 

If an individual wishes information or to take a part in these study groups, his first 
point of contact should be through the county office: the agricultural agent for agricul- 
tural material, the home agent for home economics, and the 4-H club agent for work 
with juniors. 

In many instances the county worker is able to supply the information desired. If 
not, he calls upon the college worker who specializes in the particular subject. The 
college extension worker turns, if need be, to the federal service for help in solving the 
problem. 

The extension service not only assists people in solving the individual problems of 
the farm or the home, but assists farm organizations in cooperative endeavors such as 
marketing and county and state program planning. It also assists in the administration 
of the national program for the betterment of agriculture. It should be understood, 
however, that the service has no regulatory powers. Its service and programs are en- 
tirely free and voluntary. 

Each state, of course, offers agricultural programs which are particularly adaptable 
to its farming areas. In Massachusetts the principal programs conducted are economics 
and farm management, animal husbandry, forestry, horticultural manufactures, fruit 
and vegetable storage, plant pathology, pomology, home grounds improvement, agron- 
omy, poultry, engineering, and vegetable gardening. 

For the homemaker, the Massachusetts service offers programs in clothing, child 
development, nutrition, home management, home furnishings, and recreation. 

In the 4-H club or junior activities, Massachusetts has various projects in domestic 
science, general farming, forestry, handicraft, ornamental gardening and many allied 
subjects. 

A statement of this length can hardly do credit to an idea which has been develop- 
ing for one hundred and fifty years, perhaps longer, and to a vast national organization, 
which for the past twenty-two years has been responsible for the carrying out of that 
idea. I hope, however, that I have given to you men and women of the Stockbridge 
School of Agriculture, some indication of the opportunities which extension work offers 
to continue your education after graduation.

THE WALTHAM FIELD STATION 

Twenty years ago, a small group of vegetable gardeners, representing the Boston 
Market Gardeners Association was instrumental in securing an appropriation of eight 
thousand dollars from the State Legislature for the establishment of an experimental and 
demonstrational station to study the problems relating to vegetable gardening in the east- 
ern part of the State. Directed and encouraged by Professor H. F. Thompson, then Head 
of the Department of Vegetable Gardening at Massachusetts Agircultural College, twelve 
acres of land on Reed Street, Lexington, were purchased and a small greenhouse and 
office building erected thereon. From this modest but hard won nucleus, the Field 
Station began its career of service to the commercial and amateur gardening public. 

Among the first problems demanding immediate attention was the need for better 
control of the celery blight fungus. The trained plant pathologist who was assigned to 
this investigation worked out treatments which are in general practice today. Seed 
improvement work was also started and the first steps were taken in the selection and 
breeding of the now well known Field Station strains of Hutchinson carrot and Bel-May 
lettuce. 

Early in 1923, Professor Thompson resigned to enter a successful career as a market 
gardener at North Attleboro, being succeeded by Professor R. M. Koon, who is the pres- 
ent Head of the Field Station. 

During this same year, the College was able to convince the Administrators of the 
Cornelia Warren Estate at Cedar Hill, Waltham, that it could use advantageously a 
portion of that property for educational purposes in accordance with the terms of the 



70 



late Miss Warren's will. As a result, about twenty-five acres of excellent farm land 
(formerly a corn field) and a large section of meadow land was deeded to Massachusetts 
Agricultural College. With this improved location available, arrangements for moving 
the Station from Lexington to Waltham were put into operation immediately. The land 
and bviildings at Lexington were sold and early in 1924 the work was officially trans- 
ferred to the new office and greenhouses at Cedar Hill, Waltham. 

In 1925 the Staff was enlarged by the appointment of an entomologist who was 
charged with the development of improved methods of insect control. 

Throughout this period the demands for service in all lines of horticultural endeavor 
had been steadily increasing, and in 1929 an insistent group of florists secured a legis- 
lative appropriation to enlarge the office building, erect another greenhouse, and to main- 
tain a research worker in floriculture. 

Heretofore, this branch of the College was known as the Market Garden Field Sta- 
tion, but with the increasing expansion of its activities this obviously misleading name 
in 1930 was changed to that of THE WALTHAM FIELD STATION, its present desig- 
nation. 

During its early life, the Field Station was an administrative orphan, decisions re- 
garding its operation and existence being arbitrated by a board composed of the Director 
of Experiment Station, Director of Extension Service, and Head of Division of Horti- 
culture. In September, 1930, however, its financial and administrative responsibilities 
were completely absorbed by the Experiment Station. 

In 193 5 the Field Station was still suffering from growing pains, for in that year 
the Massachusetts Nurserymen's Association secured the appointment of a specialist in 
problems of nurseryculture together with additional office space and greenhouse equip- 
ment for work with hardy plant material. 

At present, the Staff of the Waltham Field Station is actively engaged in research, 
demonstrational and service work in general horticulture, vegetable gardening, floricul- 
ture and nurseryculture as well as in the biological sciences of plant pathology and ento- 
mology. No regular college courses of instruction are given, but short courses consis- 
ting of two to ten lectures in both commercial and amateur gardening have been con- 
ducted n recent years. In 1935-1936 over one thousand men and women enrolled for 
these classes. The experimental plantings of vegetables, fruit, flowers, and woody plants 
receive much favorable newspaper publicity and now attract almost ten thousand visitors 
annually. In fact, during the past two years, it has been necessary to provide special 
attendants in the evenings and an Sundays to care for these visitors. The correspond- 
ence regarding professional subjects exceeds seven thousand letters annually. 

Foremost among the featured activities is the Annual Field Day held the first Wed- 
nesday in August. On this day the work of the Waltham Field Station is officially open 
for inspection and interest is increased by friendly competition among rival manufac- 
turers of tractors, cultivators, and other gardening equipment. In 1919, forty-nine 
vegetable growers attended the first Field Day at Lexington; in 1935, at the seventeenth 
Annual Field Day the Station grounds at Waltham were thronged with twelve hundred 
visitors interested in all phases of horticulture. 

Favored by a liberal policy, the Waltham Field Station has been able to keep up-to- 
date with horticultural progress and also to contribute its share of new discoveries. Its 
keynote is Service, and its future growth depends entirely upon its capacity to meet the 
continually increasing needs and demands of the public. 



THE FIRST WINTER CARNIVAL 

February sixth, seventh, and eighth 1936 were devoted to the official introduction 
of organized winter sports to our Campus. Many energetic students participated in the 
colorful events and their ardent support made the first Winter Carnival a successful 
venture. Stockbridge, represented by Thomas J. Goodwin, '36, was ready and willing 
to give State strong support on the occasion. 

The thunder of miniature bombs announced its inception on Thursday as Stock- 
bridge defeated the State Freshmen 3 -0 in hockey. Entertainment enough was given that 
evening by a thrilling basketball game in which a somewhat superior Springfield College 
Team managed to subdue State. 

Friday the clear, crisp weather was ideal for the skating events in which Jackim- 
czyk, '37, won a second and three thirds despite keen competition. At the same time, 
a fashion show sponsored by clothing stores was being staged in Stockbridge Auditor- 
ium. In the early evening the Vienna Boys' Choir evoked great admiration with their 
singing. A Military Ball,' followed at which the Carnival Queen and her attendants 
were selected. 

Skiing was featured Saturday at Bull Hill in Leverett. Foley, '37, was third in the 
difficult solaming contest. Then he and Jackimczyk gathered more honors by winning 
fourth and fifth places respectively in the fatiguing two and-a-half mile cross country 
race. Finally, Bush, '37, masterfully took first place in the ski jumping. Assuredly, 
Stockbridge had a very real part in this memorable innovation to student activities. 

That afternoon State defeated the Amherst hockey team, 1-0. Later, college cham- 
pions did exhibition swimming. And figure skating, accompanied by a display of fire- 
works, completed the carnival program. 

As official photographer of the Carnival, Professor RoUin H. Barrett filmed many 
interesting episodes subsequently enjoyed by all. His interest typifies the favorable, co- 
operative attitude of the faculty. Everything indicates that the Winter Carnival will 
become an established tradition.

TT HAS again been most pleasant to 
have been permitted to assist in the 
production of The Shorthorn. 

A marked feature of our entire expe- 
rience with Stockbridge Shorthorn Staffs, 
has been their unfailing ability and desire 
to work understandingly and conscien- 
tiously, and we can truthfully say that we 
do not, in our daily work, find anywhere, 
finer co-operation, more pleasing con- 
tacts, or greater intelligence, in school and 
college work. We salute the Shorthorn 
Staff of 1936. 

And we wish to add a word of earnest 
appreciation of the faculty supervision 
and co-operation. It is superb.
