In appreciation of the gracious coopera- 
tion and sympathetic helpfulness of 







Secretaries of the Stockbridge School of 
Agriculture, we gratefully dedicate this 
Year Book. 






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 Editors.

Our i^iriDIlS^l' 



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.

With twinkling blue eyes and a contagious smile, this "Vermont

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.

Tweed suits and hand knit sweaters and socks are "Andy's" identi-

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.

A mighty man for his size! Regardless of John's physical strength 
he was probably one of the most considerate chaps on campus. We all

A live wire and a member of a certain wellknown trio in the Animal

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.

"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

vegetables is to be "Pete's" job in the future.

"Barney" was sincere, full of fun, and a good football player. His

The prize mathematician of the W. L. class, Ken was the lad who

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.

This boy from Melrose was a great pal to chum around with. Being 
one of the most active members of A. T. G., and one of the hardest

"Jack" is a local boy whose genuine Irish wit made him one of 
the vital assets in the class of '41. He was a familiar figure as he

"Ted" was known for his four diversified loves: good operas, using

Mischievous, jolly and always chewing gum are words which describe

A fast walk and slow talk were two of "Ted's" outstanding charac-

but he always enjoyed sports and any other type of good time that might 
be had. Good luck to a future Poultryman!

Environment, they say, makes the man. If this is true, one can 
account for "Bill's" sense of humor and witty replies. Although in 
public his general appearance was serious, his orivate life was sprinkled 
with personality. "Bill" will make a good poultry man, and we hope 
to hear more of him in the future.

There would have been quite a void in the class of '41 without "Gus". 
His ready wit and quick temper furnished many amusing moments. He

"Toddie's" identification might be called her "roomy", although kinky

as well. "Toddie's" motto was "support the Dairy industry", and so it

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 
Wildlife Management. 

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 
unemployed graduates. 

Throughout the years members of the 
Wildlife classes have been active in 
athletics and social gatherings about 
our campus. 

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. 

Kenneth E. Brown. 



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.

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 
twenty years.

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 
rival, Deerfield. 

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 
for Stockbridge. 

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 
back, Robinson. 

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 
to 13-6. 



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 
the season. 

Varsity letters were awarded to the 
following men: 
Milton Fortune '41 (Captain) 
Stanislaw Lachut '42 (Captain elect) 
Edward Holland '41 
Walter Koenig '41 


First row: Hibbard, Marsh, Tvelia, Paton, Vanderhoop, Fortune, C. Johnson, Hardy, Allen 
Second row: Coach Derby, Tonet, Merrill, Lachut, Sholtz, Ogonowski, McKenzie, 
Manager Meister 


Prospects for another winning Stock- 
bridge School cross country team were 
far from bright at the start of the sea- 
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- 
ning average. 

The following is a summary of the

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 
Frosh made a large number of substi- 
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- 
bridge 42, North Adams Teachers 
College 19. 

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.

Our ^(O^awa^an 


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.

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- 
letics; Phil Paton, '41, A. T. G.; Bill 

"Scoop" Peck, '41, School Social Events 
and Alumni Notes; Mac Roberts, '42, 
Wild Life Management; Eileen Terry, 
'42, Floriculture; Theodore T. Topor- 
owski, '41, Horticulture and Vegetable 
Gardening; and Robert Williams, '42, 
Poultry Husbandry. 

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 
Freshman classes. 

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.

The year of 1940-1941 proved a mem- 
orable one for the members of Alpha 
Tau Gamma. Filling this successful 
year were many social and interfrater- 
nity events. 

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 
1942 for an even greater year.

The year 1940-41 will in future years 
be held in fond memory by the mem- 
bers of Kappa Kappa. The delegation 
enjoyed a year of typical K. K. good 

The season started off with a smoker 
given for the benefit of the incoming 
freshmen. This was followed by a 
series of "Vic" parties. The annual 
formal dinner dance was held at the 
Lord Jeffrey Inn on March 15. This 
dance will be of the bright spots 
in the Amherst memories of all who 

This year has proven in the eyes of 
all members that cooperation can 
achieve great heights. 

The athletic program of the house 
was a great success as was proven by 
the inter-fraternity competition. 

It is our belief that the members of 
Kappa Kappa will enjoy the same suc- 
cess in the future that all of its asso- 
ciates have in the past. 

Special mention and credit should be 
given Professor Smart and Mr. How- 
ard Barnes, both of whom contributed 
greatly to the fraternity's success 
through their generous efforts.

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 
all members. 

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 
England agriculture. 

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 
England Agriculture." 

"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.

It is the aim of this club to have 
guest speakers from the actual dairy 
world who may enlighten the student 
on some of the foremost affairs in the 
dairy industry. 

The club has been most successful 
this year through the medium of speak- 
ers, who have covered much of the 
subject very thoroughly. 

A constitution was drawn up and 
also it was decided that the club should 
undertake some means by which money 
might be raised to send a student to 
the International Dairy Products judg- 
ing contest. 

Some of the prominent men of the 
dairy industry who were our guest 
speakers are: 

Mr. Lynn Glazian, Chandler Co., 
Rochester, New York; 

Mr. Angus M. Shipley, Graduate 
student, University of Conn.; 

Mr. Edward Meeker, Walter Baker 
Co., Dorchester, Mass.; 

Mr. Paul A. Smith, David I. Buttrick

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 
in solving. 

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 
and snowshoeing. 

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- 
to-be-forgotten memories. 

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.

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.

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. 

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 
Miss Marsh. 

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. 

This year's club leaders who worked 
in the interest of the Poultry Science 
Club were: 


President Howard Fassett, S.S.A., '41 

Vice-President Charles Styler, M.S.C., '41 

Secretary-Treasurer George Yale, M.S.C., '42 



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 

Andrew Goodrich Josp^h Kivlin 

Martha Ethel Todd 

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 

Kay Janice Cahill 

Greg Charles Johnson 

Mrs. Alicia Keefe Ethel Todd 

Dwight Holbrook Rufus Hilliard 

Calvin Driscoll Ralph Levine 

Smith Richard Hi 1 

Bunny Philip Paton 

Roberts Earl Nicholson 

Much of the success of a play de- 
pends upon those who have worked on 
properties and staging. This year that 
group includes: 

Earl Nicholson 
Janice Cahill 
Marian Rumgay 
Ruth Gushee 
Edith Colgate 
Ralph Levine 

Much credit

advisor and H. Leland Varley, who 
gave so much of his time and energy 
as director.

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 
between dances. 

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, 
March 28. 

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 
until 12:00. 

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 



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 



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 
enjoyed it. 

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 
Deerfield, Massachusetts. 

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 

Leonard Vanderhoop, Gay Head...2nd 
William Williams, Holliston 3rd 


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. 



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. 

Second Prize — a medal 

George Bragdon, M. S. C.

"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."

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, 
Levi Stockbridge. 

The Hat of Levi Stockbridge — the hat 
he wore when he went down to Boston 
to the Legislature — to the Great and 
General Court. 

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 

Loyal sons of old Massachusetts, 
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. 

— H. L. Knight, M.S.C., 



When twilight shadows deepen 
And the study hour draws nigh. 
When the shades of night are falling. 
And the evening breezes sigh, 
'Tis then we love to gather 
'Neath the pale moon's silvery spell, 
And lift up our hearts and voices 
In the song we love so well. 

Sons of Old Massachusetts! 
Devoted sons and true, 
Bay State, my Bay State, 
We'll give our best to you. 
Thee, our Alma Mater, 
We'll cherish for all time; 
Should old acquaintance be 'forgot 
Massachusetts — yours and mine. 

F. D. Griggs, M.S.C., '03 


When Stockbridge School goes march- 
ing down the field 

We know our team will never, never, 

Although the other teams have lots of 

When they meet Stockbridge School 
they'll know they're out of step. 

And as this game goes down in history 

It's just another Stock-bridge victory. 

So let the cheers ring out for Stock- 
bridge School, Stockbridge School 
Rah— Rah— Rah. 

Ray Johnson, Stockbridge, '41 


(Tune — Cornell Alma Mater) 

'Neath the Elms of dear old Amherst, 

Stands our College fair, 

Hail to thee our Alma Mater 

Stockbridge men go there. 

Working ever, falter never, 

Onward toward our goal. 

Give your best to good old Stockbridge, 

Body, heart, and soul. 

Words— Charles F. Mandell, S.S.A., '39 
Russell S. Shaw, S.S.A., '39
