STOCKBRIDGE SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURE
MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE
In appreciation of the gracious coopera-
tion and sympathetic helpfulness of
MISS KATHARINE M. MARTIN
MISS CATHERINE F. HEFFERNAN
Secretaries of the Stockbridge School of
Agriculture, we gratefully dedicate this
There will come a time, in the
years ahead, when the memories of
these vital college years will be lost
in the hazy depths of time. It is for
that distant hour that the 1941 board
has prepared this SHORTHORN.
Today its pages contain little more
than a brief account of our activities
as a class and to the campus events
of the past two years. Some day
its meagre outline will enable us to
bring back more forcibly, memories
of our life at Stockbridge.
The key to a memory —

THE CLASS OF 1941
In our prejudiced minds, this class
is one of the most outstanding ever to
have earned their diplomas at Stock-
bridge. With an approximate number
of 130 members graduating, the class
of 1941 has set a new high.
Among such a large group, it is only
natural that there will be much varia-
tion in the personalities and abilities of
the different members. It has added
much to our joy here to have had
several fellow students who have been
so gay and everlastingly lighthearted
that, although they just about "got by"
in their studies, they were an unending
help in keeping the rest of our spirits
from drooping during discouraging mo-
ments. To balance this group we are
also proud to say that there have been
many in our class who have really
studied hard and who have brought
honor to themseves as well as their
The class as a whole has cooperated
extraordinarily well, and under the
able supervision of President Ray
Johnson both our scholastic and social
activities have all been very successful.

Charlotte Elizabeth Abbey
Horticulture Hobby: Dramatics
With twinkling blue eyes and a contagious smile, this "Vermont
Maid" was everlastingly trying to convince us of all the merits of her
home state. "Betty's" ultimate ambition is to manage her Dad's nursery,
but at present she'd like to get more experience working with perennials.

Did you say there's a dance tonight? Then "Mickey" will be there,
making sure that the evening doesn't get dull. Outside of his social
activities he also has An. Hus. to worry about. However, he asks odds
of none when it comes to butchering. If you haven't met "Mickey",
you've missed one of the personalities of Stockbridge.

Horticulture Hobby: Drawing
Tweed suits and hand knit sweaters and socks are "Andy's" identi-
fication tag. All this at first glance might make you think he was
English, but three minutes conversation would disclose that he's
Norwegian and proud of it. "Andy's" ambitions seem to be unknown
to the world in general, but perhaps he'll return to Chatham.

"Mike" was a quiet type of fellow who was well liked by all of his

his performance was outstanding. His keen sense of humor combined
with his good nature will bring him luck.

Animal Husbandry Hobby: Horses
A live wire and a member of a certain wellknown trio in the Animal

a Beau Brummel wardrobe and always with a cheery greeting for
everyone, Paul could ayways be found deep in either a hearty laugh
or friendly argument with one of his pals.

Besides being an authority on agriculture in the Connecticut Valley,
"Steve" is an ardent hunter and woodsman. Being a musician makes
him a very versatile individual. Upon his graduation "Steve" plans to
start his own florist business and we all wish him immediate success.
Peter Michael Bemben
North Hadley, Massachusetts
Vegetable Gardening Hobby: Athletics
"Pete," one of the best althetes ever to enroll at Stockbridge, comes
from the "Valley". With a personality and wit that just fitted his crop
of red hair, he was one of our outstanding members. Growing super
vegetables is to be "Pete's" job in the future.

Stanley William Bernotas

"Barney" was sincere, full of fun, and a good football player. His
placement training was spent on the coveted Mt. Toby demonstration job,
where he gave a good account of his mature judgement and ability.
His love for good times and hard work is certain to carry him far.

studies. He proved his fitness for wildlife work by his remarkable
placement record at the Ayer State Game Farm. More hard working,

The prize mathematician of the W. L. class, Ken was the lad who
usually solved their forestry problems amid the din of the prof's snapping
chalk. Many is the fruitless hunting trip that "Brownie" made out of
Amherst. Never mind, son, you'll get that d-e-e-r yet.

Mary Louise Brown
Animal Husbandry Hobby: Horse Back Riding
A very pleasant addition to the Animal Husbandry class was this
attractive young lady. In her freshman year Mary was very quiet and
unassuming, but after six months on placement she returned minus her
shyness. Always top ranking in her subjects, especially Genetics, Mary
will never be forgotten by the scores of friends she made here.

Wildlife Hobby: Nature Study
Bob had considerable woods experience which provided a good
background for his studies here. "Now, down at Cummington", and
"When I was in 'Burgy' " are familiar cries to the ears of the W. L.
boys. An intensely serious student, his sincerity and quiet good will
should carry him far.

"Tony" was one of the few boys who played basketball and football

Bob has been one of the rare quiet boys in the Animal Husbandry

attained his purpose with high marks. As house manager at K. K. he
did a great job. Here's hoping you can manage your farm as well. Bob.

Did someone mention Maine? Or did someone mention the latest
in men's styles? Whichever it was. Bob could well be classed as an
authority. "Clarkie's" ambition is to grow bigger and better perennials
back in the home state, and it's no idle dream either, for he's already

Another one of our commuters, "Welly" came over from Williarns-
burg every day. Since he was a quiet and reserved thinker, his mind
seemed to be taken up all the while with one thing or another. Some
lucky flock of chicks can look forward to having a competent fellow
picking up their eggs.
^mond H. Cook
A cloud of smoke rolls toward the campus and upon its arrival,
"Cookie" steps out of his Willys-Knight. Although somewhat cynical,
he is one of the easy going members of the Hort. Class. School wouldn't
have been the same without Ray and his "jalopie."

Animal Husbandry Hobbies: Horses, Guns
With his pleasing familiar Ashfield drawl, Ralph could enlighten
any one on the matter of raising horses up in the "hills". He always
managed to keep his marks high, although he was not essentially a grind.
Although one of the more quiet type, he acquired many friends.

Floriculture Hobby: Boxing
Hailing from the Big City, George brought with him a note of gaiety
with his witty remarks and good nature. He is rated as a fine boxer

Animal Husbandry Hobbies: Photography, Horse Back Riding
Wonderful invention — the bicycle! At least "Buzz" must have
thought so for very rarely was he ever seen without his. Likeableness,
a love of good horses, and a bit of shyness all got together under one
crop of dark curly hair to be one of the finest lads of '41.

Speed in running and learning were some of "Vandy's" accomplish-
ments. When it came to square dancing his rhythm and good looks put
him on top. "Hoop", though a little on the bashful side, has made a
big hit with all his classmates.

Here is the story of the local boy who made good. Conscientious
work and the ability to get along with people have shown that "Junior"
has one of the best personalities in the class. No one worked harder on

credit is due

This little miss could well be called our most popular girl. With her
cute ways she "flitted" around campus, always singing in that mighty

WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT MAJORS — 1941

A belated effort is now being made
to restore and conserve the wildlife of
our continent. The alarming decrease
of game, fish, and fur-bearing species
has caused grave concern to the cus-
todians of wildlife, and much effort
is being expended to bring back these
animals. Research projects on funda-
mental wildlife problems have been
started in a dozen different states, and
Massachusetts is beginning to under-
stand the necessity for such projects.
In the year 1935 the Stockbridge
School of Agriculture announced the
opening of a course in Wildlife Man-
agement in the fall of that year. The
course was to be limited to ten students
and this quota was filled with ease.
Dr. R. E. Trippensee was persuaded to
leave his native state of Michigan and
become the head of the Wildlife Man-
agement Department at our college.
He arrived early in 1936 and proceeded
to teach his class the fundamentals of
Since that time the course has de-
veloped and improved tremendously.
Courses have become more firmly es-
tablished and the scope of the curric-
ulum has been enlarged by the intro-
duction of various related courses.
For the last two classes the curric-
ulum has been the same, beginning
with an introductory course to Wild-
life Management in which the students
learned to identify and name scientifi-
cally the various species of birds, mam-
mals, reptiles and amphibians. Related
subjects in Forest Mensuration, Plant
Identification, Soils, Breeding and Pro-
pagation of Game Birds, Agricultural
Engineering and Public Speaking were
also part of the first semester's
The second semester was essentially
a continuation of our introduction to
Wildlife Management with instruction
in cover mapping, lake and stream sur-
vey and the preparation of skins for
laboratory study. A continuation of
Forest Mensuration and Breeding and
Propagation with the addition of an es-
sential course in Animal Ecology made
up the rest of our studies until the
Placement Training period began.
The Placement Training began April
1st, with students working for the
Mass. Department of Conservation at
various game farms, fish hatcheries,
game refuges and on stream survey
The second year started in October.
The members of the class came back
to school with an increased interest in
their chosen field. Wildlife Manage-
ment began to be a reality rather
than a dream. The Theory of Man-
agement was our major study with
a library problem as an associated
subject. Related subjects in Silvicul-
ture, General Biology and Farm Shop
were also a part of this semester's
The final semester was upon us be-
fore we realized it. The main issue
again was Wildlife Management. A
field problem was undertaken by each
student to get the experience in the
gathering of data and preparing it
for publication. The class work was
a study of the Technique of Manage-
ment. Related subjects in Diseases
and Predators, Fish Culture, Forest
Management and Business English
were studied at this time.
In the spring of 1940 the Stockbridge
School of Agriculture announced that
the class of 1941 would be the last class
in Wildlife Management. The closing
of this course was based on the lack of
positions obtainable and the number of
Throughout the years members of the
Wildlife classes have been active in
athletics and social gatherings about
Several graduates from this course
are employed in important positions
with the Mass. Department of Conser-
vation. Gene Moran and John Prouty
are assistant culturists and James Mc-
Donough is a laboratory technician.
Many other graduates are employed in
less important positions.
In a few years the Wildlife course
will be forgotten at Stockbridge, but
it will linger forever in the memories
of the few fortunate students that were
able to complete the course there.

THE CLASS OF 1942
October of 1940 saw another fine
bunch of students come into Stock-
bridge. The Class of 1942 entered, as
carefree and gay as could be expected
of any group.
They were a very friendly lot, and
before long, each and every one had
found a steadfast companion in some
other student on campus.
After the class learned (from exper-
ience) how to keep from being thrown
into the pond, it settled down and the
efforts of all were turned toward be-
coming more industrious and clearer
thinking young men and women.
Two outstanding features about this
class are the facts that it is the largest
group ever to enroll at one time and
also that it entered in the midst of a
worldly conflict. Because of this im-
pending situation, a few of these men
may not be able to complete their
courses at Stockbridge immediately.
However, we hope that most of them
will return this fall to pick up where
they left off, and to assume the new
role of seniors and lords over the in-
coming freshman class.
Good luck to you as placement stu-
dents and as future Seniors of Stock-
bridge School of Agriculture.

LORIN E. BALL
On one afternoon in the winter of
1916, a bow-legged, red-headed freshman
led the attack of a State College fresh-
man hockey team to a win on the Col-
lege Pond, rushed in from the ice to
anchor a winning frosh relay team on
the board track, and that same night
sparked the freshm,an basketball team
to victory. That epochal day in Red
Ball's history typifies the hard working
chap. He has always been a veritable
three-in-one athletic minded individual.
One of the greatest baseball players
State College ever had. Red graduated
to become a member of the Depart-
ment of Physical Education. For
twenty years, Lorin Ball has served
the college, the community, and the
boys, whether they be town boys. State
men or the Stockbridge School.
After coaching freshman athletes at
Varsity baseball. Red finally was pro-
moted to Director of Stockbridge
School Athletics and in charge of the
School's Physical Education program.
His football and baseball teams have
been outstanding. Playing through dif-
ficult schedules year in and year out,
Stockbridge School elevens and quin-
tets have made enviable records up
and down the Connecticut Valley.
Red's teams are known throughout
New England as well coached, well
grounded in fundamentals, well condi-
tioned, and always made up of hard-
working, well-schooled, sportsmanlike
fellows. Yes, Red, is an excellent
This versatile teacher of athletics,
who by right should now be called
"Gray" Ball, has many interests. He
is an outstanding collegiate basketball
official. He has for years been Scout-
master of a local outstanding troop and
was awarded the Silver Beaver several
years ago for his splendid work in
Scouting. He has been an outstand-
ing boys' camp counselor for twenty
However, his main interest, has been
the men of Stockbridge. His greatest
contribution has been his loyalty and
friendship for the hundreds of Stock-
bridge students who have come under
his tutelage and guidance going on

Having the same type of season as in
1939, Stockbridge got off to a slow start,
losing the first three games to Vermont,
Monson and Gushing. They then broke
into the win column at the expense of
Kimball Union and took a close one
from Wentworth Institute. The next
week found them bowing to New York
Aggies, but they finished the season
with a bang by beating their traditional
October 12, 1940.
Stockbridge Vermont Academy 7
In the first game of the year, Stock-
bridge showed good offensive football
but no scoring punch. They threatened
the Vermont goal line four times in
the first half. The line also showed
fine defensive ability with Vermont in
Stockbridge territory only twice during
the whole game. It was on one of these
occasions that Vermont scored on a
pass interference penalty, taking the
ball on the five yard line with a first
down, they scored on the fourth try
and added the extra point, sewing up
the ball game.
October 18, 1940.
Stockbridge Monson Academy 13
The Aggies offensive couldn't get
rolling against Monson and two so-
called breaks resulted in a victory for
Monson. On the opening kickoff of
the second half a Monson half-back ran
ninety yards for one touchdown and a
last desperate pass by Captain Watts
was intercepted and converted into a
second touchdown late in the fourth
quarter. The fine line play of Jack
Downey was the highlight of the game
October 25, 1940.
Stockbridge 6 Gushing 7
In the Aggies first home game a strong
Gushing team eked out a win over the
rapidly improving Stockbridge team.
An early Stockbridge drive resulted in
a touchdown but Gushing was not to be
denied. The Gushing back ripped the
Stockbridge line apart in the last quar-
ter and scored a touchdown which to-
gether with the point after sent Stock-
bridge down. The fine kicking and
defense work of Gapt. "Nelly" Watts
kept the Stockbridge team out of more
trouble all during the game.
November 2, 1940.
Stockbridge 13 Kimball Union
Stockbridge finally came into its own
in the mud against a strong and un-
defeated Kimball Union team.
Opening up in the first period, Stock-
bridge on a series of line bucks scored
early with Caroto going over for the
touchdown. Again in the second per-
iod Stockbridge drove to another touch-
down with Watts carrying.
The Stockbridge line again played
fine ball, stopping Kimball Union's star
November 7, 1940.
Stockbridge 6 Wentworth Institute
The Stockbridge team again showed
a fine running game with Nicholson
and Watts doing most of the carrying
and threatening three times during the
first half but couldn't get the ball over.
Late in the fourth quarter, Capt. Watts
threw a forty-yard pass to Nicholson
who took it in the end zone for the
score. The running of Nicholson and
the all-around play of Ray Johnson
were the bright spots of the game.
November 15, 1940.
Stockbridge 6 New York Aggies 13
New York had one of the strongest
teams faced by the Aggies all year. The
New York boys scored first on a series
of line plays in the first quarter and led
7-0 at the half. In the third period a
Stockbridge drive sparked by Wattts
and Caroto gave Stockbridge a touch-
down but they didn't make the extra
point. In the fourth period New York
blocked a kick and increased their lead
November 22, 1940.
Stockbridge 7 Deerfield 6
November 22 was declared a holiday
and the student body journeyed to
Deerfield to see Stockbridge close its
From the opening kickoff it turned
out to be a thrilling game. The game
opened with Stockbridge kicking on
first or second down wih Stockbridge
gaining yardage on every kick. In the
second quarter Stockbridge started to
drive. Watts passing to Bak, Bemben
and Caroto for valuable yardage. The
drive ended with Watts going off tackle
from the five-yard line. Caroto added
the extra point on a plunge off of kick
formation. In the third period Deerfield
scored on a sustained drive but the try
for point was blocked.
Captain Watts turned in the out-
standing game of his Stockbridge
career. His kicking, passing, running,
and defensive play were the high spots
of the game. Tony Caroto's defensive
play also stood out.
A football banquet was held to finish
the football year. "Ray" Johnson acted
as toastmaster. Guests included Capt-
tain Eagan of Deerfield Academy foot-
ball team, coaches and many loyal sup-
porters of the tearn. The boys present-
ed Coach Ball with a travelling bag as
a token of appreciation for his fine as-
sociations during the season.

This year's track team competed in
three triangular meets, Although they
did not win any of them they gave a
good account of themselves each time.
The first meet was with Massachu-
setts State College Freshmen and
Williston Academy, Williston Academy
winning the meet. Our boys found
themselves on the tail end of a very
close contest. Captain Milton Fortune
and Edward Holland starred for Stock-
bridge, giving their opponents stifi'
opposition in various events.
The next meet was with Massachu-
setts State College Freshmen and a
strong Kimball Union team who won
the meet. Stockbridge also gave a
good account of themselves in this con-
test and again Fortune and Holland
scored enough points to give their op-
ponents plenty of trouble and compe-
tition. Lachut of the freshman class
also gave a good account of himself,
winning the pole vault and giving the
opponents competition in the distance
The last meet was with Massachu-
setts State College Freshmen and Wil-
braham Academy. Wilbraham won the
meet. Captain Fortune won both the
high and low hurdles and "Ed" Holland
won the shot put and high jump. The
rest of the team played well through-
out the meet and gave their oppon-
ents plenty of opposition. Walter
Koenig, varsity letterman from last
year, closely followed "Ed" Holland in
the shot put event. "Walt" contributed
much to the team's success throughout

son when the only veteran due to re-
turn, Captain Charles Chapin, did not
enroll. Leonard Vanderhoop was
elected to fill this position. The squad
of approximately twenty men, about
evenly divided between seniors and
freshmen did an excellent job, coming
through the season with a 509c win-

The initial game of the 1941 season
was played with Williston Academy on
January 8, on the home court. Aided
by high scorers Bemben and Kuzmiski
the Blue and White five went quickly
to the front and defeated their oppon-
ents 35 to 18. The prospects for an un-
defeated season were soon marred,
however, when they bowed to Nichols
Junior College on January 11, in a 33-
32 thriller that went into an overtime
period. Being consistent with a win,
then a defeat, they trounced Vermont
Academy on January 15, 57 to 24. It
soon became evident that the best pas-
sing, and shooting combination would
be found with Doleva at left forward,
Gizienski at right forward, Kuzmiski
at center, Caroto at right guard and
Bemben at left guard with Szafir shift-
ing between left and right guard.
On January 18 the quintet was de-
feated by Monson Academy 39-35 on
their court. In spite of Doleva's ten
points the Aggies failed to get the edge
before the final whistle blew^. Return-
ing to true form, the following week
they swamped Westfield Trade School
36 to 20, adding another feather to their
bonnet, with Kuzmiski leading the
Blue and White attack.
After the semester finals the hoop-
sters defeated the Amherst College
Freshmen 23-21. Although the Jeffmen

tutions they failed to sink the needed
baskets in the closing minutes to claim
The mid-season game was lost to the
powerful Cushing Academy team, 33
to 22, on February 15, on their court in
a contest which became heated at
times. Cushing gained by the half, a
lead which they never released, aided
by their star center. Coming back into
the foreground on February 12 the
hoopsters nosed the Pittsfield Boys'
Club out of the deciding game in a
two out of three unofficial game series.
At the opening whistle of the North
Adams Teachers College game, on Feb-
ruary 21, Kuzmiski and Bemben spear-
headed a fast attack and the Aggies
kept widening the margin until the end
of the game. The final score was Stock-

On February 22, Stockbridge defeat-
ed their traditional rivals, Deerfield
Academy, 20 to 17 on their court, in
a game that exemplifies the spirit of
sportmanship that exists between Deer-
field and Stockbridge. The Aggies
claimed the lead at the half, but it was
nip and tuck until the gun finished the
Despite Kuzmiski's 19 points Stock-
bridge bowed to the strong Bay Path
Institute five, 36 to 28. Trailing at the
half, the Aggies were gaining fast when
the gun finished the game.
Closing the season on the home court,
Stockbridge downed Cranwell Acad-
emy 45 to 20 in a contest which lost
much of its spirit of keen competition
after the first quarter. Coach Ball
used two full teams and again Kuzmis-
ki was high point man.

A well balanced fighting Stockbridge
Hockey team came through the 1941
season undefeated in scheduled games.
This record was marred, however, by
a 2-2 tie with Cranwell Preparatory
Academy and a post season defeat by
Ihe State College varsity, 4-2.
The team started slowly at Brattle-
boro, Vermont High School winning
2-0. Picking up speed, they took over
Kimball Union Academy, 6-3 and Ver-
mont Academy, 3-1. Hard luck hit
the team when they met a fighting
six from Cranwell Preparatory Acad-
emy ending in a 2-2 tie, but they came
back with high spirits and beat a good
Williston Academy team 8-4. This
ended the regular season as the game
with Nichols Junior College was called
off because of poor ice.
An attempt was made to have a two
out of three series with State for the
College championship. Two games
were played, Stockbridge winning the
first 4-1 and State the second 4-2. The
third was called off because of poor ice.
John Janusas did a fine job as coach.
His efforts in achieving a strong Stock-
bridge team were tireless. He was on
the ice every afternoon demonstrating
fine hockey which proved to produce
a constantly winning team.

Serving as that body which governs
the affairs of Stockbridge Student Life
on campus, the Student Council, com-
posed of members of both the senior
and freshman classes, had a very suc-
cessful year. The traditions of all fore-
going classes are upheld, and the
conduct of undergraduates is discussed
and dealt with accordingly.
Meetings were held every week in
the Memorial Building, and were under
the direction of Sam Sestito.

WEEKLY N EWS
The Stockbridge News Column, ap-
pearing weekly in the Massachusetts
Collegian, was conducted in 1940-41
under a system somewhat different
from that employed in past years. In
order that everyone might have equal
opportunity to participate in the work
of preparing copy for publication, each
member of the staff, in addition to as-
suming responsibility for reporting all
news pertaining to certain activities —
academic, departmental, social, athletic,
etc., — took his turn as editor of the
column. In this way everyone gained
experience, not only in reporting news
but in editing and revising copy for the
The names of those who deserve
credit for faithful reporting are listed
below, together with the standing as-
signments for which they were respon-
sible: Charlotte Abbey, '41, covering
Hotel Management and Tri Sig; Edith
Colgate, '42, Animal Husbandry; Fred
Emmert, '41, Dairy Manufactures,
Fruit, and K.K.; Ken Foltz, '42, Ath-

Special praise goes to "Topper" Top-
orowski, who covered not only his as-
signed departments but many special
features as well, and to "Ken" Foltz,
who turned in complete and accurate
reports on all athletic events through-
out the year.
The Stockbridge reporters wish to
take this opportunity to extend thanks
to those who have helped them make
this year's column one of the best in
recent years: to Editor Willam Dwyer
and the Collegian Board, for helpful
suggestions and generous cooperation;
to Dr. M. H. Goldberg, advisor to the
Collegian, for his help in bringing about
understanding and good feeling among
the State and Stockbridge workers;
and to Mr. C. N. DuBois, Advisor to the
Stockbridge News Staff, for assistance
in editing and planning the weekly
Tri Sig started an eventful year by
greeting the freshman girls on Regis-
tration Day. This was done with the
idea of establishing a custom to be car-
ried out by Seniors in the future and
to maintain a closer social relationship
among the girls of the Senior and
Some kind of an activity was plan-
ned once a month and regular meetings
were scheduled every other Monday
evening. This program started with a
supper hike to Mt. Warner early in the
fall and was followed by the annual
supper at Miss Hamlin's. Several other
informal gatherings were held. High-
lights of the year were the Vic party
held at the "Mem" Building on Febru-
ary 28th and the banquet at the Mt.
Pleasant Inn on March 23rd. Several
alumnae were present at the banquet.

year were many social and interfrater-
The highlight of the social events
came on March 1, when the members
sojourned at the Lord Jeff Inn for the
annual banquet and dance.
Several "Vic parties" and a "smoker"
were also held.
The members of Alpha Tau Gamma
are very grateful to "Pop" Barrett for
his evermore advice. The members
also extend best wishes to the class of

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY CLUB
With full cooperation from both
members and oflficers the Animal Hus-
bandry Club has enjoyed an outstand-
ing, successful year.
The club, through its many varied
activities, has molded together the feel-
ing of mutual good fellowship among
During the course of the academic
year, the officers have planned and
presented some very interesting pro-
grams pertaining to the many phases of
animal husbandry. With meetings twice
each month from December through
March, many topics have been dis-
cussed by men of prominence in New
At the first meeting in December,
Professor Archibald of the Extension
Department gave a talk on Grass
Our next speaker was Mr. Fred Cole,
fruit specialist of the Extension De-
partment. Mr. Cole led a very inter-
esting discussion on the "Land Use
Policy of Massachusetts".
The guest speaker at the second Jan-
uary meeting was Mr. Clifford Clev-
enger, manager of the Mount Hope
Farm, Williamstown, Massachusetts.
His topic was "Beef and Hog Produc-
tion in the North East".
On February 11, 1941, a round table
discussion on farm credit was carried
on by Mr. Larry Rhodes, Production
Credit Association of Northampton,
Mr. Charles Smith of Intermediate
Credit Bank, and Mr. A. R. Pichard of
the Federal Land Bank, Springfield,
At the first meeting in March, Pro-
fessor Tirrell, Head of the Department
of Agriculture, University of New
Hampshire, led a discussion on "Sheep
and Horses and Their Place in New
"Soil Fertility Related to Livestock
Production" was the topic of another
round table discussion held at the final
meeting. Professors Archbald, Fawcett,
Thayer, and Zak led the discussion.

This year as in the past few years,
the Horticulture Club was continued
by the students especially interested in
horticulture. It was not only attended
by majors of the hort class but also
by others who, in some cases, had no
connections what-so-ever with the
topics discussed. The meetings were
held every other week, and many
speakers from both on and off the
campus gave interesting talks.
Two meetings consisted of talks
about placement work, and at these
Professor Blundell also told where
some of the past graduates were and
what their work was. Mr. William
Doran of the Botany department gave a
talk on "Horticulture in General". At
one meeting Mr. Alex Gumming of the
Bristol Nurseries gave an illustrated
talk on Korean Chrysanthemums.
Those who were especially interested
in Forestry were able to hear Mr. Gor-
den Ainsworth who graduated from
State in '34 and spoke on "Practical
Conservation of Timber Resources in
Massachusetts". Vernon Jones, a
member of the class of '41 gave a well
illustrated talk on the Berkshire
Garden Center. Another very well
illustrated talk was given by Dr. Har-
lan Anglers of Ware who showed many
beautiful pictures taken in and around
Charleston, South Carolina.
Many ideas were expressed by the
Freshmen, and the club will continue
strong in the year to come.

Figuratively speaking the outing Club
may be classed among the liberal arts,
its scope is so wide. Each individual
trip brings forth its own special prob-
lem for someone to use his ingenuity
The purpose of the outing club is
to take one out where he can partici-
pate in such outdoor activities as cycl-
ing, canoeing, camping, hiking, skiing
One of the favorite spots for an
autumn hike was Pelham Sky Pastures,
a few miles east of the Campus, where
one could get a delightful glimpse of
Mother Nature's fall stock of rainbo^v
colors. We usually arrived in time to
eat our lunch as the sun was fading
into the west.
The first major trip of the college
year was sponsored by the Five College
Conference of the Connecticut Valley:
Amherst College, Massachusetts State
College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith
College and Springfield College. This
was a bike trip to Northfield, Novem-
ber 9 to 11. The party left Amherst,
Saturday morning, for Northfield, 26
miles to the north. Only one minor
mishap occurred, a punctured tire,
which took a dime's worth of tape to
repair. In Northfield we stopped over
at the American Youth Hostel. In the
evening for entertainment we had a
square dance with one of the party
calling the squares. Next morning we
set out for Warwick to conquer Mount
Grace, returning to Northfield via
Winchester, New Hampshire. Armis-
tice Day was the cue to pack and head
for home, non-stop, except for a pause
in Turner's Falls, where some of the
more daring members scaled the under
structure of the French King bridge.
A mark was left under the center of
the bridge, stating that it was climbed
November 11, 1940 by the Massachu-
setts State College Outing Club.
The longest trip on the calendar was
the Five College ski trip to Wilmington,
Vermont, January 29 to February 2.
"Alfie", the Club's station wagon, was
used for the first time. At Wilmington
we stayed in a log cabin which was
surrounded by a number of excellent
trails and slopes, requiring varied skill
on the hickories. Of all our trips this
one left us the most happy and never-
Membership in the Outing Club is
open to both State and Stockbridge
students. We hope that this organiza-
tion may, in the future, offer increas-
ing opportunity to both groups for
friendly cooperation and good fellow-
ship in pursuing their common inter-
ests in the great out-of-doors.

PAN DOC I OS SOCIETY
The Pandocios Society was organized
and first recognized by the Student
Council in the fall of 1939. The name
of the Society is derived from the
Greek word which means host or inn-
keeper and is appropriate for the mem-
bers of the Hotel Stewarding Course.
The purpose of the Society is to
become better acquainted with the
successful men in the hotel industry
and to win recognition for the course.
A minor purpose of the Society is to
get the students together once a month
for a general good time and discussion
of their work and problems.
The first meeting of the Pandocios
Society was held this year as usual in
the early part of the year at the Horti-
cultural Manufactures Building. The
purpose of this meeting was to wel-
come the new freshman class into the
brotherhood of the clan.
At the second meeting this year's
officers were elected and it was decided
to accept Mr. David Treadway's invita-
tion and hold future meetings at the
Lord Jeffery Inn here in Amherst. This
transfer has been an added pleasure
to the meetings.
To win recognition and promotion
for the course, students have regularly
contributed articles for the Hotel and
Restaurant News. These contributions
have been very successful for the
Boston Stewards Club has again voted
to grant two scholarships yearly to
deserving students. Another accom-
plishment of the Society has been the
exhibits in the Horticultural Show and
Recreational Conference, and it is
hoped they will continue to be success-
ful. The active part taken by the
Society in the annual Recreational
Conference has been outstanding.
Prominent men in the field have taken
surprising interest in the course and
now journey to the college for a day's
visit which has proved educational for
them as well as the students.
Under the able and congenial leader-
ship of Dr. Walter A. Maclinn, the
Society has proved very successful in
its purpose and we feel sure that it will
aways continue to be so, with such a
well liked and admired leader.

POULTRY SCIENCE CLUB
The Massachusetts State College
Poultry Science Club was formed with
the aim to promote a scientific approach
to the problems of Poultry Husbandry,
by the meeting of faculty and students
in a social background. The outstand-
ing speakers of the past year were:
Head of M. S. C. Poultry Dept.
Service man from
Wirthmore Grain Company.
MR. H. ROTZEL,
Executive Manager of the
New England Fresh Egg Institute.
Mr. Vondell has again assumed the
duties of club advisor and has worked
with the program committee to secure
an interesting group of speakers.
The club has run several social
activities under the direction of the
Social Committee, Miss Thompson and
The club closed a very successful
year with our "Third Annual Banquet"
held at Mount Pleasant Inn, February
18, 1941. Remarks were given by
several club members, former club
members and faculty members. Mr. E.
Parmenter of Franklin. Mass., the lead-
ing Rhode Island Red Breeder of the
World was the guest speaker.

The activities of the dramatic
group this year were somewhat diff-
erent from previous years, evening
performances of two three-act plays
being given instead of one-act plays in
The first play given was "Big Hearted
Herbert" by Sophie Kerr and Anna
Steese Richardson presented on Febru-
ary 20th. The scene of the play was
laid in the home of a successful manu-
facturer and the action centered around
the question of "who is boss — husband
or wife?" The matter was settled in
favor of the latter. Cast for the play
was as follows:
Herbert Kalness Eugene Putala
Elizabeth Kalness Charlotte Abbey
Robert _ Richard Hill
Junior Edmund T. Ho dgen
Alice Lina Dibble
Mrs. Lawrence Mary Brown
Mr. Lawrence Francis DeVos
Mrs. Goodrich M-^ian Rumgay
Mr. Goodrich John McGuane

On May 31st the Senior Play was
presented, it being "Through the
Night" by Florence Ryerson and Colhn
Clements. The action of this play took
place at the summer home of Dwight
Holbrook located somewhere on the
Atlantic coast. The cast was as follows:
Sayre Charlotte Abbey

For former 4-H Club members, and
for the students getting acquainted
with club work for the first time, the
College 4-H Club offers a well-rounded
program of social activities and service
club work for both two-year and four-
year students. The monthly meetings
include a speaker or discussion on some
subject of interest to the whole group;
a short social hour of games, singing
or dancing; and refreshments prepared
by co-ed members with the coopera-
tion and advice of as many members
of the Club as can crowd into the tiny
clubhouse kitchen. These meetings
teach the cooperation and leadership
that is needed in club work and in the
various occupations of life.
During the past year we have had
many interesting and educating speak-
ers. Doctor Fraker, a member of the
faculty, gave a vivid account of some
of his journeys. He told of how he
almost traded his head for a white
hen when he met some head hunters.
Another speaker was a Scotch refugee
minister, Mrs. Evans, who told of her
native country and its condition during
the present war. "The Experiences of
an Assistant County Club Agent" was
an account of Harold Storey's work
last summer in Middlesex County. His
advice on club leadership proved to be
very valuable to the club. Recently,
Harold has become an Associate Club
Agent in Hampshire County. Ida Davis,
M. S. C, 1940, is now an Associate Club
Agent in Essex County.
Call it a new extra-curriculum
activity, if you will; but regardless of
its label, the Recreational Leadership
group has proved to be of great service
to nearby communities and at the
Service Club Officers Conference held
here March 21-23. All those interested
in this leadership have attended special
meetings to learn how to lead games,
singing, and dancing. This group has
assisted the Easthampton and Sunder-
land Granges, the College Poultry Club
with their Christmas Party, the com-
bined Outing Club and 4-H Barn
Dance, the Hallowe'en Party, and at
various other social functions.

The social season of Stockbridge was
successfully ushered in by the Fresh-
men Reception Dance, which was held
at the Drill Hall on Saturday evening,
October 26. This is an annual affair
given to the freshmen by the seniors.
Over 200 seniors, freshmen, and their
guests enjoyed our first affair.
Music for the evening was furnished
by Johnny Newton and his Orchestra
from Athol. Dancing was enjoyed by
all from 8 until 11:30. A new and novel
idea was introduced by the announce-
ment of the football scores of the day
Chaperones for the reception were
President and Mrs. Hugh P. Baker,
Director Roland H. Verbeck, Professor
and Mrs. RolUn H. Barrett, and Mr,
and Mrs. Avery Barrett.
The members of the committee, those
responsible for the great success of the
dance, were Sam Nickerson, chairman;
Sam Sestito, and Craig Earl.
Another successful Stockbridge
affair, the annual Senior Reception,
was held Friday evening, March 21, in
the Drill Hall. This was a farewell
dance given to the Freshmen class who
left for placement training Friday,
The hall was gaily decorated with
streamers, masses of balloons, and a
farewell message "Good Luck" spelled
in blue at both ends of the hall. The
music was furnished by Norman
Temple and his Orchestra and enjoyed
by well over 100 couples from 8:00
Professor and Mrs. Rollin H. Barrett
and Mr. and Mrs. Donald E. Ross were
chaperones for the evening.
All arrangements were under the
direction of chairman Jack Manning
and his committee members, Jean Cos-
grove, Sally Gidley, James Carvelli,
Edward Craft, Leo Kunan and Richard
STUDENT COUNCIL DANCE
The Student Council Dance was held
February 7 in the Drill Hall and at-
tended by approximately 200 Stock-
bridge students and their guests. The
dance, an annual affair sponsored by
the Council, was declared the most
successful to be held in recent years,
despite a miniature cloudburst.
Chaperones for the evening were
Professor and Mrs. Rollin H. Barrett,
Mrs. Edna Powers, a guest of the
Barretts, and Director Roland H.
The hall was beautifully decorated
in the Valentine spirit, red and white,
and the music for the evening was
furnished by Norman Temple and his
Orchestra from Springfield from 8 until
n:30 P. M.
The success of the affair was due to
the efforts of Chairman Michael
Allessio and his committee members,
Paul Baldwin, William Hardy, Richard
Hill, Raymond Johnson and Richard
WINTER CARN I VAL
Old man weather took first place in
the opening of the sixth annual Winter
Carnival held here on the campus.
With deliberate actions, he sent rain
and warm weather to Blitzkrieg all
hopes of a winter-like winter carnival.
The fraternity members managed
however, to salvage enough snow to
erect their many-themed snow carv-
ings. Alpha Gamma Rho with its
splendid interpretation of the popular
song "High on a Windy Hill" took first
place. Both of the Stockbridge frater-
nities entered competition, A. T. G.
with its group of seals, and K. K. with
a patriotic scene of Uncle Sam.
Friday afternoon a happy crowd
watched Ace Thayer skate through
ankle-deep water to take the skating
honors of the day.
That evening the muted trumpet of
Johnny McGee and his orchestra led
the couples of State and Stockbridge on
to rhythmic dancing. The new method
of selecting the queen by an applause
meter was used, and Norma Handforth,
a State junior, was selected as Carnival
The lack of snow prevented the hold-
ing of skiing competition and skating
events scheduled for Saturday. This
did not dull the spirit of the enthusiasts
for they had much to do as an audience
for a swimming meet, and active parti-
cipants at a tea dance held that after-
noon at the Drill Hall.
At dusk the crowd again came forth,
first to witness the crowning of the
queen, and the awarding of prizes, by
President Hugh Potter Baker, then on
to the many "vie" parties held by the
fraternities. Midnight brought to a
close the sixth Winter Carnival of
Massachusetts State College.
On Friday afternoon, November Ist,
at 4 o'clock the doors of the Physical
Education Cage were opened to admit
the public to the 31st Annual Horticul-
tural Show at Massachusetts State
College. During the three days of the
show's existence over 15,595 specators
On entering the show, the visitor
first thrilled to the sight of an immense
formal Japanese Garden. This central
theme, occupying a space 50 by 90 feet,
was the largest of the student enter-
prises to be undertaken. The Stock-
bridge students in the Division of Hor-
ticulture under the supervision of the
faculty of that division were largely
responsible for the construction of this
garden. Five mountains with a wind-
ing sand lake in the foreground were
used to portray this scene. But with-
out all the gnarled and twisted trees
and the many queer looking stones
which were used, the landscaping
wouldn't have been Japanese. To us
the trees, bridges, and stones meant
nothing but in the Japanese religion
they all have a definite significance.
On either side of the cage, surround-
ing the main feature were tables dis-
playing flowers, both commercial and
student exhibits. Because of the
season, naturally showy Chrysanthe-
mums were predominant among these
displays; however, the many other
kinds of flowers exhibited were also
Students desiring to have an exhibit
of their own were given a chance to
do so in space allotted them around
the outsides of the cage. In keeping
with the theme of the show, Oriental
Gardens were also added to this 100
square foot class.
Students were also given a chance to
compete in classes arranging flowers
or fruits in their appropriate containers.
The wonderful cooperation seen in
the building of the show this year can
no doubt be attributed to the student
chairman, Merton Ouderkirk, who
formed several committees and then
placed all of the Stockbridge students
of Horticulture on the various com-
mittees, each then having a special

The fourth Little International Live-
stock Show at the Massachusetts State
College went over bigger and better
this year. A student show, it was or-
ganized and operated by the Animal
Husbandry Club with William Warren
of West Roxbury, Massachusetts as
manager, Phyllis Tower of Abington,
Massachusetts as assistant manager, and
Donald Mattison from Arlington, Ver-
mont as committeeman. Professor
L. V. Tirrell was faculty advisor. The
show has become so large that this year
it had to be extended to two days. On
the first day a judging contest was held
in which forty-three, two year and four
year students of agriculture partici-
pated. Their job was to place two
classes each of horses, hogs, beef cattle,
and sheep and give oral reasons on
each one. Ward McCarthy, a farm boy
from Tyringham, Massachusetts won
the contest with a score of 556 points
out of a possible 600. Allen Cowan
of Pittsfield, Massachusetts worked into
first place in beef cattle; Edward Hen-
derson of Melrose, Massachusetts took
top honors in swine; Raymond Johnson
of West Springfield, Massachusetts won
first on sheep; and the high place in
horses went to Mary Brown, South
The fitting and showing contest on
March 15 involved six rings of animals
and contestants. Thirty-five students
put in weeks of effort before the show
on seventy-five head of livestock and
turned in some keen competition on the
big day. Mr. Esterbrooks, a former
winner in the Pennsylvania State Live-
stock Show and now an active sheep
and cattle breeder was official judge
of sheep. Professors Garrigus and
Young of the University of Connecticut
judged beef cattle and horses. Swine
were judged by Professor Victor Rice
of Massachusetts State College. Awards
were as follows:
Ward McCarthy, Tyringham 1st
Charles Parker, Stoneham 2nd
Donald Mattison, Arlington, Vt 3rd
John Brotz, Chelmsford 1st

Richard Stockwell, Upton 1st
Michael Allessio, Pittsfield 2nd
Karl Kneeland, Amherst 3rd
Edward Henderson, Melrose 1st
Richard Stockwell, Upton 2nd
Michael Allessio, Pittsfield 3rd
For the Premier Showmanship com-
petition the high man in each class
exhibited in turn all four classes of
stock. A committee made up of the
judges of the separate classes put the
contestants through their paces and
gave the top award of the day, the
Ensminger Trophy donated by the
New England Homestead Magazine to
Richard Stockwell. Second place was
captured by Leonard Vanderhoop and
third by Edward Henderson.
Presentation of awards was made by
President Hugh P. Baker of Massachu-
setts State College.
DAIRY CATTLF FITTING
AND SHOWING CONTEST
The annual Fitting and Showing con-
test which is sponsored by the Animal
Husbandry Department was held in
the Grinnell Arena on Saturday, May
3, under the guidance of Prof. Richard
C. Foley. The judges were Professor
K. S. Morrow, of New Hampshire and
Mr. R. M. Cook of Greenfield, Mass.,
of the Sheldergren Farmis.
Of the 32 entries only 16 were left
after the judges classed the group on
their fitting skill of the animals. Then
the real competition started, with the
judges looking for the ten top showmen
in the ring. The animals were moved
around the arena with every man doing
his best to top the show. After the
judges had given all the entries due
consideration, the ten winners were
lined up in the center of the ring and
Professor Morrow gave his reasons for
his placings. The placings were an-
nounced by Prof. Foley, and the prizes
were awarded at a banquet held on
Agricultural Achievement Day, May 12.
The Prizes were as follows:
First Prize — a medal
Leonard F. Vanderhoop, S. S. A.

"Where are you going, Joe?" "Oh
Hi-ya Bill! Up to the 'Mem' Building
to register. Aren't you coming along?"
"Sure, wait for me, will you?" And so
still with the spirit of youth and college
life, and what's more with the desire
and privilege of being able to serve the
red, white and blue, these boys hast-
ened to the Memorial Hall where they
were able to participate in the first
peacetime draft this country has ever
The Selective Training and Serivce
Act of 1940 demanded that all young
men between the ages of 21 and 36 reg-
ister on October 16, for future military
training. Naturally this included
several of our Stockbridge students,
who in between their classes took time
to put their names along with those of
the other draftees.
The fact that students were register-
ing in Memorial Hall was a very signi-
ficant part of the program. This fine
building was built in 1921 and dedicated
as a memorial to the members of this
college who are the war dead resulting
from the battles of St. Mihiel, Aisne
Marne, and Argonne. As the young
men filed in to register, they were very
conscious of this significance.
Perhaps these words were running
through their minds; "We 'will keep
faith with you who lie asleep."

LEVI STOCKBRIDGE HAT
Locked up in the Treasure Room of
our school Hbrary is an old black silk
hat. It once belonged to Levi Stock-
bridge who wore it to the Legislature.
For years the hat has remained tucked
away in the old Hibbard house in North
Hadley. This was the farm that Levi
grew up on and managed for many
Last spring, Professor Barrett, other-
wise known as "Pop", and Professor
Charles Thayer, knowing of the exist-
ence of this hat, drove over to the Hib-
bard House and persuaded the folks
there to let us have the hat.
On class day last year, Steve Kosa-
kowski, president of the senior class,
presented this hat to Ernest Kemp,
then a freshman taking his placement
training on the college campus.
In future years on class day, this dis-
tinguished hat will continue to be
brought out and passed down from the
graduating class to the freshmen class
in memory of the founder of our school,
The Hat of Levi Stockbridge — the hat
he wore when he went down to Boston
to the Legislature — to the Great and
When this honored relic of the man
for whom our school is named is passed
on at Commencement by the graduating
class to the Seniors of the following
year, what does it represent, what man-
ner of man was he that wore it, and
what traditions are passed along with
the hat to each new Senior Class?
Self-educated, Levi Stockbridge
knew better than most men the value
of school and college training for those
who are to live with the land, and he
did much to lay the foundation for such
training now available for us. Keen in
his observations, of an inquiring mind,
he knew that true education never
comes to an end, but by observing and
testing, by reading and studying, con-
tinues all through life.
He knew the value in making a man
by a hard day's work well done, and
he knew that no man liveth to himself
alone. He realized the responsibilities
as well as the privileges of citizenship.
At the Lyceum and in town meeting
he learned how to think on his feet
and to speak to his neighbors, a useful
training for his later service to the state.
Tall, spare and bearded, with keen
compelling eye, he blended in his
speech the English of the King James
Bible with the forceful pungency of
Yankee diction, as he worked in the
Legislature for the establishment of
Massachusetts Agricultural College.
This silk tile hat, during his term in the
State Senate, was a fitting tribute to the
dignity of the Commonwealth; and as a
badge of public service, it was proudly

Bay State's loyal sons are we,
In her praise our songs shall be,
'Till we make the welkin ring,
With our chorus as we sing.
With the tribute that we bring,
Holyoke's hills prolong the strain
Echoing to that glad refrain,
And the gentle winds proclaim
Far and near thy peerless fame;
Praising e'er thy honored name

Faithful, sturdy sons and true,
To our grand old Alma Mater
Let our song resound anew.
Cheer, boys, cheer for old
Give our college three times three;
Sons forever of the Old Bay State,
Loyal sons, loyal sons are we.
