J i r H I R T ^ ir - S E V E N % \3 >JO i\ FOREWORD We are a trifle awed when we think of the responsibilities automatically placed upon us when we undertook the editing of this book, for we realize that there are a number of obligations which we have to fulfill. We present this book with the fervent hope that none of these obligations have been neglected. It would be deviating a trifle from the truth to say that our task has always been a pleasure. The editing of a school annual can be an arduous task at times. But if we could be sure that this, the 1937 SHORTHORN, would be worthy of its predecessors, its class and its school, we could rest with the feeling that our work had not been in vain. So, with these thoughts in mind, we present to you, in behalf of the class of 1937, this volume of the SHORTHORN. The Editors. TO VICTOR ARTHUR RICE, ft SCHOLAR AND A TRUE FRIEND, THE CLASS OF 1937 RESPECTFULLY DEDICATES THIS BOOK. CO 02 CO 2: PROFESSOR VICTOR ARTHUR RICE As a student at North Carolina State College from which he graduated in 1917, he gained prominence as a scholar, leader, athlete. He was Swine Specialist for the state of Massachusetts from 1917 to 1913, after which he was appointed Assistant Professor of Animal Husbandry at our college. From this position he advanced to Head of the Department of Animal Husbandry and Head of the Division of Agriculture. He is the author of the textbook Breeding and Improvement of Farm Animals, a standard work which is used in about 35 colleges and universities. He is in great demand as a public speaker, and as a hobby, he plays golf much too well. Professor Rice married Laura Bussels of Fernandino, Florida, in August 1921. They have two very charming daughters, Zipporah, 15 years old, and Mary Virginia, 13. Mrs. Rice in her own right is a woman of accomplishments. She has an enviable reputation as an actress. You have the rare opportunity of seeing her portray the character Darlin' in your class play Wappin' Wharf. Her friends recognize her in real life as a darling: a most charming and gracious one. G. V. G. DEDICATION To Professor Victor Arthur Rice The compliment which you pay to Professor Victor A. Rice is well de- served. Undoubtedly, however, this dedication to him of the written record of your college years has deeper significance. You are setting up a person- ality to serve as an ideal. You might well strive to imitate him in those qualities which he possesses so abundantly: PERSISTENCE. He sticks everlastingly to the task until it is mastered. Obstacles do not frustrate, he accepts their challenge and conquers them. INTELLIGENCE. He is efficient in the use of mental faculties, and by his example inspires other to do the same. This is the test of a great teacher. PROMPTNESS. He is a man of immediate action. Whatever is to be done is accomplished without procrastination. FORCEFULNESS. He is a super dynamic personality, — a whirlwind lecturer whose power overcomes classroom force of gravity. HELPFULNESS. He is ever ready to give advice and instruction in order to round out a more efficient, acceptable human being. INSPIRATION. He has the faculty to make one do his best, to rise above the commonplace, to reach those rare heights of excellence to which we all aspire, but so seldom attain. IMAGINATION. He has the insight of the artist and the philosopher. He sees deeply, and eloquently delineates his visions for others to see. COURAGE. He is not afraid to face facts, to assume responsibility, to make mistakes, to do his duty. This is the man you honor, — one worthy of emulation. Guy V.

The Editors. 24 STUDENTS 25 flNIMflL HUSBANDRY The breeder of domestic animals — an artist working with flesh and blood. 27 William R. Burnham Windsor, Vermont 1917 Big Bill Burnham, hailing from the Green Mountain State, has used a most unique method of pulling down good grades — spending many class hours in peaceful slumber. In spite of this Bill has been wide awake on his job as president of K. K. According to Bill, Vermont has SWEET soil, SWEET maple sugar, and some very nice' SWEET-hearts. Kolony Klub, President, 2; Football, 1, 2; Student Council, 2; Agronomy Club, 1; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, Treasurer, 2; Sociology Club, 2. Gordon F. Cahill Springfield 1917 K. K.'s chief night watchman and man about town deserves a place in our hall of fame for his unsur- passed knowledge of the fairer sex. June will see Grandy's losing one of the senior members of their selected clientele — and the school one of the its most liked students. Kolony Klub, Secretary, 2; Football, 1; Basketball, 1, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2; Baseball, 2. Arthur W. Ecklund Pittsfield 1917 Swede is one of our silent, hardworking pals. This tall Nordic coming from the Berkshires has carved for himself an enviable niche in the memories of his class- mates because of a pronounced liking for Ayrshire Cattle, Connecticut Hill-billies, and Swedish women. Cross-Country, 1, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1; Secretary, 2; Baseball, 2. Edwin K. Fife West Springfield 1917 Although Ed has been with us for only one year he has made himself many good friends. Active in extra- curricula activities, successful scholastically, and lucky in "Fords", Ed also has proved himself a diplomat off the campus. Whenever you see his light blue hat or his bright red hair, you can be sure of a smile just below. Cross-Country, 2; SHORTHORN, Activities Editor, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 2; K. O. Club, 2. 29 Elwyn M. Fowles Southampton 1915 Winn has the makings of a good Animal Husband- man, based on his success here at school and his many years of active 4-H Club work. He is to be admired for his achievements here accomplished vifith the hindrance of everyday chores at home. He is the most promising farmer in the group, as evidenced by his election to Master in the Grange. Kolony Klub, Basketball, 1, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. Douglas B. Graves Ashfield 1917 In Mrs. Graves' son, Douglas, we have one of our strong, silent men. During his two years at Stockbridge he has made a marked success of studies and ath- letics. If Dame Rumor has it straight, Westfield, New Jersey, is going to lose one of its fair daughters to Massachusetts. Alpha Tau Gamma, Historian, 2; Cross-Country, 1,2; Basketball, 1; Poultry Club, 1; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. Welland S. Horn Brandon, Vermont ^^^^ Coming from the hills of Vermont with a strong liking for "Dodies" (Aberdeen Angus cattle to you) Farmer Horn has been most quiet in the accomplishment of his daily tasks here. Among the many mysteries surrounding him is the outstanding one concerning the Amherst Tea Room. What? Why? Wherefore? Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. Arthur W. Hoyt Merrimac 1915 Little can be said of the freshman, Arthur Hoyt. However, he chose to live at the K. K. during his senior year and shortly after school opened last fall, he made his historical debut into social life — from which he hasn't quite recovered yet. Nevertheless, it has never interfered with his accomplishments here and at home. Kolony Klub, Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2; Baseball, 2. 30 Alvin R. Kellogg, Jr. Feeding Hills 1917 Tall, dark and handsome — with all the accessories and a winning way — it is little wonder that they say the girls of Feeding Hills are thrilled every time Al comes home. His ever present smile and good fellow- ship will always be remembered by his classmates. Cross Country, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. Roger P. Levreault South Hadley Falls 1918 This commuting Frenchman is a jolly lad. A very, very romantic sort of a chap, he always finds it hard to suppress his emotions. Being a second Barney Old- field, he has developed a very close acquaintanceship with Tom Moran — the gendarme of our campus. Alpha Tau Gamma; Football, 1. William V. McCormack Arlington 1915 Bill is Stockbridge's gentleman farmer. Although he comes from New York's social life and makes regular weekend trips to Boston, he has made a very enviable record in our school. Here's hoping that Fox Hill Farm will prove to be a happy place for a life's honeymoon, and that he will be as successful there as he was here. SHORTHORN, Statistical Editor, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. John A. McCoy Belmont 1914 Coming from Belmont (at least once a week) John has been most influential in making our class periods interesting and amusing. FHs commanding way is ad- mired by all and will bring him out on top when the chips are counted. We'll be hearing a lot about John in the future. Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 31 Ronald A. Nelson Bernardston 1914 Cold New England winters will never be an obstacle to rugged Ronnie. Seen, but not heard, this local lad has done well for himself, and his future looks very bright. A great man with the horses, he is certain to plow a straight and admirable furrow in the field of life. Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. W. Nelson Newell Kaysville, Kentucky. 1916 Cur Kentucky Colonel came up to us from the blue grass region with a practiced and appreciative eye for fine livestock, good crops, and beautiful women. A loyal son of his native and distant state, Bluegrass' career has been marked with those things which go to make successful farmers and breeders. Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2; K. O. Club, Treas- urer, 2; Sociology Club, 2; Baseball, 2. James P. Powers Green"wood 1914 Spending his Freshman year with the class of '36, Jim has been with us but a few months. During that time he has been a constant source of amusement, good fellowship, and worthwhile advice. He is an ardent student, and as a result of his efforts is an authority on Animal Husbandry and co-eds. Kolony Klub; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. Malcolm Riddle Cambridge 1917 Our best Spanish athlete and man about town, Mac has created for himself an unparalleled record. He's handy with horses and women and is enthusiastic about cooperatives. Whether he combines these abili- ties and enthusiasms or not, he is sure to overcome any obstacles he may encounter. Cheer Leader, 1, 2; Glee Club, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 2. 32 Richard N. Buggies Hingham 1917 A genuine sportsman, an accomplished wrestler, and a successful scholar — that's Dick. Probably the biggest "little man" on the campus, Dick has won a host of friends with his happy smile and pleasant ways. We're wondering why he chose to live up in the Sorority Country this year. Has Hingham no attractions? Wrestling, 1, 2; Sociology Club, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 2. Robert V. Shattuck Pepperell 1916 An easy-going chap. Bob was a staunch supporter of the "early to bed, early to rise" theory. He was always punctual, and his good habits show their effect in his scholastic success. If we are any judges of human nature, it's our opinion that Bob is going to be a power in the agricultural field some day. Kolony K!ub, Treasurer, 2; Football, 1; Hockey, 1, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2; Baseball, 2; Sociology Club, 2. Harrison E. Smith, Jr. Lexington 1912 We could always count on Smitty to say the right thing at the wrong time, and make our class periods more enjoyable. The oldest, most ambitious fellow in the group, coupled with being a veteran of the show circuit with world record cows — Smitty is bound to go to the top if experience and character are necessary for success. Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. Robert L. Smith Newburyport 1918 October, 1935, saw a shy, blond lad from Newbury- port enroll at S. S. A. to study cows. June, 1937, will see a changed personality — one who knows his cows, and, no longer shy, also his women. Always full of fun and willing to try another blind date, he has never neglected his work, as his record shows. Kolony Klub; Agronomy Club, 1; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 33 David N. Stiles Southbury, Connecticut 1915 The "Senator" from the Nutmeg State came north to learn how to farm. He has asked more questions, eaten more ice cream, and walked farther than anyone else on campus. It is said that when he retires he intends to re-write the dictionary. Animal Husbandry Club, 2; Agronomy Club, 1; Glee Club, 1, 2; Sociology Club, 2; De Molay Club, Presi- dent; Senior Play. Oliver H. TuUer West Simsbury, Connecticut 1916 From the rolling hills of Connecticut to the level plains of Massachusetts in a quiet and unassuming way came Ollie to make many friends at S. S. A. Back with his cows and chickens, Ollie will achieve success if his determined nature and good fellowship continue to be a part of him. Animal Husbandry Club, 2. Arihur L. Whitcomb, Jr. Charlton 1916 Although small in stature. Art more than made up for it with his over-grown good-naturedness. His ever- present smile, his unceasing search into the mysteries of wine, women, and song, and his clever handling of the faculty has made him a never-to-be forgotten mem- ber of our class. Boxing, 1; Baseball, 2. Carleton H. Whittaker Danvers 1917 Besides his scholastic endeavors, Whit has spent a large portion of his time promoting A. T. G., tractors, and Danvers. His overflowing enthusiasm and sense of humor are bound to carry him far. Already experi- enced in his field, Whit will always be remembered for his authoritative discussions with the profs.

The program consists of speakers prominent in the agricultural field who present their views and experiences. These talks prove to be most interesting and helpful to the members. The speakers and their topics for the past year. were as follows: Mr. Milton Case — Agriculture in Burma. Mr. P. D. Young, M. S. C, '29— Sugar Farming in Porto Rico. Mr. Dewitt C. Wing — The Next Quarter Century in American Agriculture. Mr. Shaun Kelley — Problems Facing the Dairy Farmer in Mass. Mr. Cliff Cleavenger — Animal Husbandry - An Industry for N. E. Mr. Richard H.

Acker Hartford, Connecticut 1918 A steady, stolid, dependable and truly likeable chap, Harry will take over the reins of his Highland Dairy with a firm hand. With the little woman to guide him a successful future is inevitable. Football, 1, 2; Dairy Club, 2. Arne John Aho Maynard 1917 Diminutive in stature. Shorty, the hard-boiled editor, possesses a mighty brain. His retentive memory and his knack for marshalling facts has made him one of the most brilliant students in Stockbridge. His out- standing ambition is to become the manager of a Co- operative. SHORTHORN, Editor-in-Chief, 2; Dairy Club, 1, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1; Sociology Club, 2. Alex J. Amenda Amherst 1917 Quiet, but well liked, Alex, a home town boy, hasn't given us much opportunity to get acquainted. He is seldom seen at social functions on campus, but we understand that he is quite a night owl elsewhere. We recognize brawn coupled with dogged perseverance. Dairy Club, 2. Joseph J. Bauks Marlboro 1915 Possessor of a melodious voice, and "willing to use it, Joe was a mainstay on the football squad. Joe has tried, to no avail, to set a good example for the rest of the class during the past two years. Even though he intends to make singing his life's work, we think he would make a better dairyman. Football, 1, 2; Hockey, 1, 2; Track, 1, 2: Glee Club, 1, 2; Dairy Club, 1, 2; Sociology Club, 2; Freshman Dance Committee. 38 Irene Boguslawski Amherst 1918 Entering her Freshman year with the reputation of a hardened man-hater, Buggy found herself the only girl in a class of twenty-four fellows. She handled them in a splendid manner, although we think the "rep" was lost in the process. Keep up the good work, Irene. SHORTHORN, Art Editor, 2; S. C. S., Student Council Representative; Class Secretary, 1; Student Council, 2; Senior Play. Frederic D. Callahan Hadley 1916 Fred drives in every day from Hadley, bringing a cheery hello for everyone, together with a boisterous sense of humor. He is a stellar athlete, starring in basketball and baseball. All in all, Fred was a big addition to the Dairy class. Basketball, 1, 2; Dairy Club, 2. Harry I. Cunningham, Jr. Framingham 1917 Huge of stature and caustic of tongue — that's our class clown who kept us jumping at a furious pace. Cunny, sometimes known as Prime, kidded anyone and everyone mercilessly. He is, however, a likeable chap and we are glad to claim him as one of us. Football, 1, 2; Hockey, 1; Dairy Club, 2. Armando Emanuele Revere 1916 Independent and strong-willed, with original ideas, Armando is an industrious student. During his stay with us he seemed to be very unwilling to talk about himself. A broad-shouldered bulwark on the football squad, he is another letterman from the dairy class. Football, 1, 2; Hockey, 2; Dairy Club, 2. 39 Alpheus O. Fulton Waltham 1916 All seriousness in everything, Al, who has chosen lab work as the object of his endeavours, really should have been a minister. Although his name isn't Pete, he surely goes to town on the piccolo. We award Al with the title of all-class grind, but still he finds time for much cheerful banter. Hockey, 2; Sociology Club, Secretary, 2; Band, 1, 2; Dairy Club, 2. Joseph R. Goldrick Jamaica Plain 1916 Smart, but som.ewhat self-conscious, Joe surprised us and himself at times with his differences of opinions with certain profs. But for all his modesty, he was a determined competitor for the hockey squad, and that same determination is applied to his studies and work. SHORTHORN, Athletic Editor, 2; Hockey, 1, 2; Basket- ball, 2; Dairy Club, 1, Vice-President, 2. Elmer E. Hair Worcester 1916 At first glance one would think Emmie only a quiet, well-mannered lad, but underneath he would find a perservering spirit v^hich wins him immediate recog- nition on the athletic field and in the classroom. A veteran dairyman, Emmie has been showing the boys how it's done for the past two years, and will continue that same practice in the future. Football, 1, Co-captain, 2; Basketball, 1, 2; Class' Vice-President, 1; Dairy Club, 2. Samuel R. Lowery Arlington 1915 Arlington's playboy and our fair-haired class bluffer, Sam could model for Esquire. He was a prominent figure on the track and the rink, and we're told that he is a second Fred Astaire on the dance floor. We'll remember Sam as a true friend, always ready with a new gag. Cross Country, 1; Indoor Track, 1, 2; Hockey, 2; Baseball, 2. 40 Donald N. Mercer Palmer 1916 Wavy-haired, well dressed, good-looking, keen, with a pleasant personality — this describes to perfection Don, the musician and socialite. With several queer, but still contemplative ideas about the origin of life on this planet, he has impressed us with his inquiring mind. Kolony Klub, House Manager, 2; Class Vice-Presi- dent, 2; Band, 1, 2; Orchestra, 1; Dairy Club, 2; Senior Dance Committee, Baseball, 2. Anthony R- Merino Waltham 1916 Tony, the boy from Waltham, proceeds to mow down all opposition on the athletic field with the same pre- cision as others mow it down scholastically. A dark, handsome lad, Tony has a secret yearning to raise a moustache, but he hasn't quite the courage to stand the loudly spoken opinions of his classmates. Football, 1, 2; Hockey, 1, 2; Dairy Club, 2. William E. Prindle Springfield 1914 Short, diplomatic, and entirely original. Bill, a drum- mer-boy by choice, seems to find plenty to do at all times. He cuts a mean figure on the ice and ■we are told he doesn't do too badly on the dance floor. He will be remembered as a loyal friend, always ready "with a helping hand. Hockey, 1, 2; Student Council, 1; Baseball, 2; Dairy Club, Treasurer, 2; Freshman and Senior Dance Com- mittees. Robert L. Rosenfield Dorchester 1918 Tall, slow to move, but quick to think, Rosey has been the buffer for all practical and impractical jokes, but he always comes up smiling. We have all ad- mired his artistic nature, and his ability to converse intelligently with the professors. Good luck, Rosey, and don't cut yourself with that razor. SHORTHORN, Assistant Editor, 2; Dairy Club, 1, 2; Sociology Club, 2. 41 Manton P. Spear "Wakefield 1916 Known as Tex because of his pronounced drawl, this lad with his very inquisitive nature, hopes to become a world traveler. Tex is interested in skiing and almost anything that provides excitement. With many years of practical experience in the dairy field, we feel sure that he will make a name for himself in this line. Dairy Club, 1, 2; Outing Club, 2; Sociology Club, President, 2; Senior Play. Benjamin J. Swatson Amherst 1913 A calm, unruffled friend, always on time and never caught unprepared, Bennie comes to us from Ohio State College. Under his quiet self-containment, he is ever alert and on his toes. With his limitless ambition, it is written in the stars that he will go far in his chosen field of work. Cross Country, 2; Dairy Club, 2; Sociology Club, 2. Walter C. Wanczyk Hadley 1917 A local flash on the basketball court, Walt is well known for his athletic ability here in the Connecticut Valley. He is quiet in class, but we hear that he is capable of creating quite a rumpus in the locker room with the other commuters. With all his experience at Flint Lab, he should become an expert ice cream manufacturer. Basketball, 1, 2; Baseball, 2; Dairy Club, 2. 42 DAIRY Class of 1338 Sanford Bookless Pitlsfield Edward R.

Surgen Hadley 43 DAIRY CLUB The Dairy Club has been very active this season and has brought in many prominent men in the dairy field to discuss timely problems concerning the industry. Attendance has been large at these meetings, as the club is composed of both State and Stockbridge students. The Stockbridge freshmen, however, were conspicuous by their absence. A few of the speakers and their topics were as follows: W. H. Bronson — Dairying in Europe. C. Foskett — Experiences in Retailing Milk. Mr. White — Qualities Necessary for Advancement. Dr. Keenan — Good Housekeeping and Sanitation in the Dairy Plant. A. W. Smith — Personal Experiences in the Dairy Industry. Stockbridge men in office: Joseph R. Goldrick, Vice-President William E.

Wanczyk 44 FLORICULTURE Flowers — they toil not, neither do they spin — yet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. **^^^^ 45 Irving S. Anthony New Bedford 1916 Self-confident, but with a likeable personality, pro- moter Tony missed his real calling — he should be selling bonds to old maids. With a fine memory for facts that many do not possess, Tony has made an excellent record here at Stockbridge. He was also a social suc- cess as a partner in the Morrice-Anthony combination. Football, 1; Horticultural Show, 1, 2. John M. Eastman Gill 1918 Keen, always ready with a good story, John has made an enviable scholastic record. He has formed with Olson a companionship on campus that rivals the Anthony-Morrice combine. John travels to and from Greenfield every day and so we saw very little of him outside of class. With all the gadgets on his car, he should enjoy commuting. Bernard J. Jackimczyk Florence 1915 A fine athlete, Jake lacked only size to make him- self a serious threat on the football field. He is modest and carefree, but with a natural talent for arranging flowers that should make him a very good florist. His pleasant disposition has kept him out of many in- volved discussions on floriculture and will certainly help him in the business world. Football, 1, 2. lack J. Kelleher Brockton 1913 With a helping word where-ever needed and with warm friendliness toward everyone. Jack has become a familiar figure on campus. His Irish diplomacy and his unbounded confidence coupled with his seriousness and his willingness to learn will carry him ahead in the world. Do you know anyone in Maynard, Jack? Horticulture Club, 2; Horticulture Show, 1, 2; Band, 1. 46 Peler W. Minkus Westfield 1915 Easy-going, affable but determined, ex-govemment man Pete was the gay Lothario with the Amherst beauties. We think he must be cursed with a con- science because he at least worried about the studying he didn't do. Aqua vitae (whatever that is) was never his downfall, but it made him pleasant company. He is such a handsome lad that we don't blame the Amherst girls for succumbing to his charms. Kolony Klub, Historian, 2; Sociology Club, 2. James F. Morrice Vineyard Haven 1917 Good-looking, wavy-haired Jim with his flair for art will probably become noted for his floral creations. As one of the three Stockbridge members of the band, he revealed that he is also gifted with musical talent. His popularity at Smith College is a sure sign that he will be successful as a retail florist. Alpha Tau Gamma, Vice-President, 2; Football, 1; Horticultural Club, 2; Band, 2. Marion W. Newhall Peabody 1917 Good-natured Marion; her amiability was the quality that permitted her to put up with our horse-play. We think that Olie and Marion would make a great pair, having a similar make-up. Can't you two do something about it? Her genial nature and her perseverance have earned for her the respect of her classmates. E. C. S., Secretary-Treasurer; Horticultural Show, 2. Edward F. Norberg Arlington 1915 Ruth, the Radcliffe girl, took our school giant around weekends. This may explain why Ed was the class bluffer. We don't consider Norberg studious, but we believe he will be a thoroughly practical florist. As well as being the best hockey player in Stockbridge, he is one of the most popular fellows in the Floriculture group. Kolony Klub, Vice-President, 2; Hockey, 1, Captain, 2. 47 Edward M. Olson Belchertown 1916 Slow, but persevering, Olie has worked hard here and deserves success. He has very little to say in class, but he is decidedly aware of what is taking place. He is invariably seen on campus with his bosom pal, Eastman. Cross Country, 1. Marshall N. Winkler Wakefield 1917 Red is an expert skier who bored us constantly with his lengthy monologues on the art of skiing. He is deeply interested in carnations and has heated argu- ments with the professors over the finer points of carna- tion culture. Red has a fine scholastic record, probably due to the fact that he is a convincing bluffer.

Bartlett Springfield 1909 A clear thinker and a reserved, polite sort of a fellow is Bartlett. Respected for his industriousness and liked for his quiet humor, Stan usually has a very loud burp for any occasion. Winter Track, 1, 2; Cross Country, 2; Horticultural Show, 2. Joseph E. Broughton Brookfield 1918 A trackman and a student with a very, very serious outlook on life, loe puts his heart and soul into his work and produces excellent results. With a job that has been v/aiting for him for two years he should have a rosy future. Cross Country, 1, 2; Winter Track, 1, 2; Horticultural Show, 1, 2; Horticultural Club, 2; Sociology Club, 2. George B. Bush Nev^rfane, Vermont 1916 An expert ski-jumper, Barry sailed for Stockbridge at the first winter carnival and captured the prize. He is also a fine football and baseball player, contributing more than his share toward putting our teams in the winning columns. His congeniality is expressed in his friendly greeting, "Hi-ya, fella." Football, 1, Co-captain, 2; Baseball, 2; Basketball, 1, 2; Horticultural Show, 1, 2; Class Treasurer, 1, 2; Horticultural Club, President, 2; Freshman Dance Com- mittee. Vincent J. Callahan Harvard 1917 Silent and attentive, Cal is rather shy, not given to saying much in class. His sincerity and his ability to work hard will be remembered by his professors and by his fellow students. His likable unassuming man- ner will probably aid him greatly in becoming a suc- cessful horticulturist. Horticultural Show, 1, 2; Horticultural Club, 2; K. O. Club, 1, 2. 52 Clifford E. Cummings West Springfield 1915 Quiet, and slow in answering, angular Cliff is always ready with his broad smile. We expected his dilapi- dated motor conveyance — too venerable to be called an automobile, to blow up any day, but it virill probably stay under him for many more contented and slightly bacchanal miles.

Meetings for the year were planned and officers were elected. On February 25 the second meeting was held and Mr. Walter Woodward, Manager of the Park and Pollard demonstration farm, gave an interesting talk on "Poultry Problems."

Roy Howes, '20, Vice-President Forrest Haffermehl, '24, President Botlom, left to right — Miss Clara Dillaway, '29, Executive Committee Allen Pomeroy, '25, Executive Committee 80 STOCKBRIDGE ALUMNI flSSOCIflTION The Stockbridge Alumni Association was founded in 1926 by a group of loyal graduates who had been out into the world for several years busily mastering life's struggles, but not too busy to realize the lack of strong ties to hold their interest in Alma Mater and keep old memories and friendships ever fresh. The Stockbridge School of Agriculture, or the "Two-Year Course in Practical Agriculture," as it was known prior to 1928, is a very young School, registering its first class in 1918. The type of training which was offered in this non-degree vocational course was entirely different, a new plan of practical education in agriculture not available at any other college in New England. So it was really pioneering 'work when Professor John Phelan and his Faculty Committee set up the standards and courses of study which should be followed in those earlier years. Thus we find the trial efforts of yesterday with necessary modifications and change, fast becoming the accepted practices of today. It was this training, academic, practical, and social, which has made it possible for our group of Alumni to go out into the world and become not only skilled workers in the world's oldest and most useful pro- fession, but good citizens as well. Stockbridge School has a very large percentage of graduates who are holding positions of responsibility, com- paring favorably with other types of colleges and institutions. These loyal sons of Stockbridge are becoming the real backbone of agriculture, not only in New England, but in many neighboring states. With such a loyal undergraduate body as there is on the campus each year, it is only natural that an active Alumni Association should be organized. Starting as it did during the time when business was good, it had a period of rapid development and was able to get well established before the begin- ning of the depression; otherwise it would not have been able to weather the many years of hard times which came so unexpectedly. The first meeting of the Alumni organization was held in Sherer's Restau- rant at Worcester in November of 1926. The committee members who started the association were Sidney A. Smith, Walter B. Shaw, Arthur R. Taylor, Gordon E. Steele, and Roger B. Estey, all of the class of 1921. Plans were formulated at that dinner gathering for the constitution and by-laws which later that summer were adopted and have been our guiding plan ever since. The Stockbridge Alumni News first known as Two-Year News was published by Paul W. Viets, the Supervisor of Placement Training from 1921 to 1927, as a mimeographed sheet, and was sent to all graduates whether they were active in the Alumni Association or not. Later the Alumni Associ- ation took over the cost of publishing a printed news letter which is issued three times each year. The practice the last few years has been that only those who have paid their alumni dues shall receive this publication. Dues in the Association are $2.00 annually, which is a very nominal fee when one considers the cost of circularizing such a large group as we now have on the School records— 600 in 1924, more than 2000 names in 1937. 81 STOCKBRIDGE ALUMNI flSSOCIflTION (CONTINUED) It should be the object of each graduate or former student of the Stock- bridge School to join the Alumni Association before he leaves the College and thereby make a permanent contact between him and his classmates. One little realizes how much you value the associates whom you have enjoyed during the two years spent on the campus, until after a year or so when you find your classmates spread out over the greater part of this country. It is then that you wish to have some means whereby you can keep informed as to what each one is doing. Often it so happens that a graduate upon receiving his credentials at commencement time feels that now he will be able to go out into his chosen type of work and have everything pretty much his own way. But, such is far from the true course of things. The training which is received while studying here at the College is merely outlining a course for the development of one's abilities. Whether or not one will follow the proper course and have ability lead straight to achievement, will depend entirely upon one's own self. It is like two contractors building a house. One uses good judgment in choosing materials and planning, while the other does not have knowledge to back his plans, and soon after the houses are completed the latter needs constant alteration to secure the desired results. The old saying, "Experience is a dear teacher," still holds true even in the case of Stockbridge graduates. It will be found that one may learn much by matching experiences with those who have had the same training and are employed in much the same kind of work and thereby save oneself the mistakes and errors which would otherwise have to be endured. Reviewing all that has been said, it is easy to visualize a year or two hence the value of belonging to the Alumni Association of your School and keeping posted on the activities of the College and of your classmates and acquaintances . Loyal alumni who have held offices in the Association since its organi- zation are listed below with the periods of their service indicated. Presidents Sidney A.

To increase competition, the Senior class is divided into four sections during the Spring semester. One group is com- posed of the members of the two fraternities, and is known as the "Club" team. The second team is made up of Seniors majoring in Dairy Manu- factures, and is called the "Dairy" team. The "Hort" team is composed of students majoring in Horticulture, Floriculture, and Pomology. The "Wild Life" team is made up of Seniors majoring in Wild Life Management, Animal Husbandry, and Poultry Husbandry. The Spring program is divided into three parts — an indoor track meet held in April, an outdoor track meet held in May, and an intramural base- ball league schedule, with each team playing the other teams at least twice. The trophy will be awarded each year to the team having the highest average standing in all three events, and may be retained for a year in that department. The plaque was won in 1937 by the Dairy team. ^ 'M^t^^ ■ -^r^ P*PPFW I J ■ ' ::,: I w ■?•, J, -i*^ J. 1 m i^..-^- ■ ■ ■ - d 11. ■„j. 84 STOCKBRIDGE HONORARY SCHOLASTIC SOCIETY Early this year at one of the regular meetings of the Stockbridge Faculty Advisory Committee, Miner J. Markuson, Assistant Professor of Agricultural Engineering, presented the suggestion that a plan be adopted by which Stockbridge students who achieved a high scholastic record during their two years here could receive some recognition for that work. It has been a custom in the School for many years to award letters, sweaters, and certifi- cates to students who compete successfully for places on the various athletic teams; the members of "The Shorthorn" staff receive a place of prominence in the yearbook; the Student Council this year has selected special hats as an emblem of the duties and responsibilities vested in them; and all of these are extra-curricular activities, not definitely scheduled or required on the study program, but, nevertheless, playing a very important part in the broadening influences of our Stockbridge life. To the faculty group this idea of encouraging high scholarship appealed strongly and it was voted to appoint a special committee to submit full plans. As a result of this committee's careful work a plan of procedure has been adopted which the Faculty Advisory Com_mittee hopes will serve to emphasize the importance of sound scholastic standards among all Stockbridge under- graduates. The name selected was "Stosag", the original suggestion of Professor Markuson, and comprises the first three letters of Stockbridge, the central S for "School" and the last two letters representing the first two in the word "Agriculture". Thus, it combines effectively letters from the three main words in the name of the School and yet is short, dignified, and easily pronounced. The "O" is given the sound as in "stone", and the "a" as in the word from which it came. The purpose of the organization is "To honor and publicly reward those graduates of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture who have attained high scholastic standing and have shown the attributes of good citizenship." Selection of honor students is made from those graduates of each year, beginning with 1937, whose records show no grade below 70 in any subject and whose average for the first three semesters is 85 or better. Other students may be considered when outstanding records in placement training or in other studies may justify special consideration. Special regulations are simple and specific. They are: (a) there shall be no future organization of members of this society; (b) there shall be no dues of any sort; (c) there shall be no election of faculty to honorary member- ship; (d) the weighted method of striking averages shall be followed; and (e) placement training grades shall be used to guide the Faculty Advisory Committee in making selections, but shall not be included in averages submitted. Awards shall be made by the Director or his selected representative at the annual Commencement exercise in June. The award shall be an engraved certificate signed by the President of the College and the Director of Short Courses. The first group of honor students ever to be selected in this way has been chosen from the Class of 1937 and we take pride in recording their names in this yearbook of the class as a tribute to their effort, persistence, and ability.

VERBECK 85 HORTICULTURAL SHOW The twenty-eighth annual Horticultural Show was held in the cage of the Physical Education Building on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November sixth, seventh, and eighth. The main feature of the show was a very attractive formal garden, constructed by Stockbridge students, and sponsored by the Horticulture Club. Stockbridge students also received numerous awards in individual and group exhibits. 86 ACTIVITIES 87 RING COMMITTEE The Class of 1937 introduced the new Stockbridge ring which is intended to start a tradition which will continue to symbolize the Stockbridge School and all its achievements. The ring is set with a blue spinel stone, signifying one of the school colors. On one shank of the ring is the seal of the State of Massachusetts. The other shank contains the authentic coat-of-arms of Levi Stockbridge, after whom the Stockbridge School of Agriculture is named. The Stockbridge coat-of-arms consists of a shield with three crescents arranged triangularly. The crescents symbolize the three crusades against the Saracens during the Middle Ages. The crest of the coat-of-arms is a knight's helmet with a closed visor, indicating preparedness to do battle for truth and righteousness and to relieve the oppressed. COMMITTEE MEMBERS Frederick C. Tucker, Chairman Thomas J. Boyce, Jr. Donald E. Baldwin Elizabeth A. Pieper Henry T. Griffin id* W* Oa The year began with the first meeting held at the 4-H Clubhouse. All Senior members and ten Freshmen were present. After the functions and activities of the club were explained to the new girls, Miss Hamlin gave a very interesting description of her recent trip to Alaska. She illustrated her talk with postcards, photographs and several native-made souvenirs. The meeting was adjourned after refreshments were served. At the last meeting, during which next year's officers were elected, a social hour was held. Although the year did not hold many social events for us, it was quite successful and enjoyable. We hope that next year's members will arrange a more active program and carry on the traditions of the S. C S. Officers for 1937-1938 President, Charlotte L. Cox Vice-President, Virginia I.

Mr. Monosmith has been a constant and most helpful friend and we take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation for his assistance. 93 STOCKBRIDGE SOCIOLOGY CLUB This organization has developed from the series of discussion group meetings which have been led by Rev. K. C. MacArthur. Protestants, Catho- lics, and Jews have all participated in the discussions of social and religious problems. Among the topics treated during the current academic year have been: Religion and Communism, Evolution and Religion, The Meaning of Thanksgiving and Christmas, Choosing a Life Partner, Home Life, and The Place of Suffering in Experience. The thanks of the group are due the Kolony Klub and the Alpha Tau Gamma for their generosity in opening their houses for these meetings. OFFICERS 1937 President, Manton P.

The team opened the season with a flying start, but slowed down as the season advanced, due largely to the many injuries to the players. The objective game with Deerfield was lost in the last half when they recovered our fumble and converted it into a touchdown. The second and third teams had an excellent season, coming through undefeated. There are several promising stars, some of whom will be regulars next year, forming a fine nucleus for a bigger and better team. Letter awards to Seniors are as follows: Co-captains, Elmer Hair and Barry Bush, Howard Andrews, Harry Acker, Donald Baldwin, Thomas Boyce, Joseph Bauks, Irving Christensen, Joseph Drago, Armando Emanuele, Frederick Fischer, Bernard Jackimczyk, Anthony Merino, Winthrop Sanderson, Frederick Tucker, Carleton Whittaker, and Manager Wilbur Young.

The opening game at Williston was lost by one goal after a hard fought battle. The team then traveled to Deerfield to lose a see-sow game when Deerfield scored in the last few seconds of play. In the return game, Williston overpowered us by a fast skating aggregation. The final game with the State Freshmen was played on the College pond on ice which made skating almost impossible. The game was called after the first overtime period, with both teams scoreless. Letter awards to Seniors: Captain Edward Norberg, Donald Baldwin, Joseph Bauks, Armando Emanuele, Joseph Goldrick, John Keenan, Samuel Lowery, Anthony Merino, William Prindle, Robert Shattuck, and Manager, Joseph Drago.

Far above, on a stormy crag, clinging by its toes, there stands a pirate's hut. We had hoped we might see a pirate ship at sea, a swaying mast, full set with canvas, a victim walking off the plank into the roaring sea. But alas, our pirates grow old and stiff. They have retired, as we say, from active practice and live in luxury on shore. Yet their villany still thrives. We are quick to think that childhood passes with the years, that its fine fancy is blunted with the practice of the world. But, if man permits, a child keeps house within his heart. For him, long will live the timid Patch-eye, the evil Duke limping on his wooden leg, the roaring Captain flourishing his hook. Darling and her one tooth, sinister Old Meg, Red Joe and Betsy who are, — but if the child in your heart still lives, you have always known who they are. And once again in Wappin' Wharf, despite the sign-post of the years, we have run on the "laughing avenues of childhood". The Duke .— — Joseph E. Drago Patch-Eye Frederick C.
