The Pasture 

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring; 
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away 
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may): 
I sha'n't be gone long — You come too. 

I'm going out to fetch the little calf 
That's standing by the mother. It's so young. 
It totters when she licks it with her tongue. 
I sha'n't be gone long — You come too. 

Robert Frost 


The following pages represent not merely 
two additional years in which we have accumu- 
lated knowledge, but they also try to capture the 
reality of a forward drive— striving to achieve new 
heights in both spiritual and mental maturity. 
Memories of college days at Stockbridge with 
their countless associations will remain alive for 
many years, and past diligence will be rewarded 
with future success. Learning should not stop 
even though we are no longer under the protec- 
tive presence of the college community. Chal- 
lenging situations lie ahead but as we advance 
may our prolific school experiences serve as rich 
reservoirs from which we may draw when in need 
of wisdom. 


More and more in the years 
ahead you will realize that 
your years in Stockbridge have 
contributed a unique and very 
influential chapter to your 
lives, wherever they may lead. 
This Shorthorn is a memorial 
record of those years — a record 
of your life on the campus and 
in particular of the friendships 
and associations formed here. 
Many of these contacts will 
continue, some will be broken, 
but this is the way it was in 
the Spring of 1951. 
Your training in agriculture will give you a flying start in your profession. Thirty 

classes of Stockbridge men and women have proved that. What you accomphsh with that 

start will depend in large part on the degree to which you keep learning. 

American agriculture is a vast and complicated industry, which is changing and 

developing and adjusting rapidly. There is a satisfactory place in it for you if you will 

only continue to grow in your ability to do things well. 

Your friends on the staff at the University are still interested in your progress. We 

hope you will keep in touch with us for there will still be times when we can help. You 

have our best wishes - always.

The Stockbridge class of 
1951 is graduating in a period 
of critical emergency for our 
nation just as we are faced 
with the gigantic task of de- 
veloping and expanding all 
phases of national military 
defense after they had been so 
suddenly and seriously de- 
pleted immediately following 
the conclusion of World War 
II. All the schools and colleges 
of this great country are con- 
fronted with the problem of 
increasing our military man- 
power for the Army, Navy, and Air Force, and the consequent drain on present student 
enrollments which will result. Certainly we know now that hundreds and thousands of the 
present undergraduates will find it necessary to join the armed forces within the next 
two years. 

Much as we regret the interruption of the educational programs of these thousands 
of young people, we feel sure the men of Stockbridge who have graduated in the past few 
years will face their new duties with courage and resolution as free men do. They fully 
understand that freedom is a privilege that must be constantly defended if we are to 
remain a free nation in a world of free nations. 

May the memories of your stay on this beautiful campus of the University of Massa- 
chusetts always serve to strengthen your ideals of highest citizenship and service to state 
and nation. The loyalty oath we have taken together at our Stockbridge convocations will 
be a constant challenge to your spirit and devotion. 

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic 
for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all."

3n iWemoriam 

Lois Rinehart 

We, the class of Stockbridge '51, wish to extend our sympathies to the 
family of Lois Rinehart. Lois completed courses at our school in 1948 and 
would have graduated from the University this year but for her unfortunate 
and untimely death. 

Lois showed a love for animals early and by her teens was well versed 
in most phases of animal lore. One could not have asked for a better friend 
than Lois. Her sympathy and understanding was felt and appreciated by 
all who knew her. She was a wonderful person. We sorely miss her on 
campus today, but her kindly spirit will live on in the people who knew 
her. Her wholesome ideals and vital enjoyment of Kfe was appreciated by 
all. We can only say that Lois was loved by all who knew her, and in our 
hearts her sterling quaUties will never pass away.

"Stet's" solid counsel has been eagerly sought by many of the more 
flamboyant membersof the Forestry group. His marital status has been 
heatedly debated on many occasions. What will it be dad?

"Long Bob" is a very reliable fellow and very conscientious with his 
studies. He certainly has a long stride very few can keep up with him. 
"Bob" "takes-off" for Worcester to see his little red head every Friday. 
Since "Bob" finished an Automotive Course with "Tiger" Tague, he 
has little trouble making the hills with his "blue turtle" Chrysler 
product. "Bob's" pastime is jockeying motorcycles and fixing his car. 
In the future "Bob" wants to be a farm manager or superintendent. 
We know you will make it.

"Easy" Ed never lets anything bother him. Ed is a little slow getting 
started in the morning, but once he gets up his momentum, he really 
accomplishes things. Besides aU the time he spends at his studies? --Ed 
works rounding up news articles for the school publications. Ed's tired 
old battered typewriter is visual evidence of the many hours he has 
spent banging out volume after volume of "Wastebasket" literature. 
Anyone who has been associated with him can readily become aware of 
his fine sense of humor and his philosophical way. We wish you the 
best in whatever you undertake.

Dick is quite an independent man but nevertheless he is always open 
for discussion at any time. In two years we have seen him put much 
time and energy into Floricultural work. Of course, you shouldn't think 
of Dick as just a student, for his social life has not been neglected. He 
loves square dancing and you will always see him at a Floriculture club 
meeting. As a hobby Dick likes to raise chickens. Dick will be remem- 
bered for the clean-cut and generous fellow that he is. A more loyal 
buddy would be hard to find; we are sure that his outstanding high 
character will bring him success in the future.

Dave is a serious minded, good-looking young man and a good 
thinker, especially when it comes to going home to see a queen named 
"Margie." In a few years we will see him rise with a profitable business. 
We will certainly miss "Dave" -the fellow with the sense of humor.

Chester Bak can be found regularly behind a cigar and an expensive 
one at that. When "Chet" first came to Stockbridge his main thought 
was to become successful. But as time went on he found out it was more 
fun to mix a little play with work. Seriously, he is an intelligent, ambi- 
tious, and quiet fellow that he was during his first year. He has finally 
climbed out of his shell and is now known as "the Campus bandit!" 
Girls flock around Chet because of his charming personality. He would 
make an ideal husband for any kind of a girl as he is an all-around fellow. 
So watch out girls you may be drawn into his web and then there is no 
escape. Good luck Chet as a Greenkeeper. We know you'll always 
make out.

A more sincere and warm hearted person would be hard to find. One

Barney has the most happy-go-lucky personality in the school. He 
can worry the less about anything than any student we know. Barney 
has the reputation of getting things done and has done good work in 
school. He plans to own purebred Holstein Cattle some day. Most of 
his leisure time is spent hunting and fishing. Prof. Foley seems to be 
the only person who can say more words in a given time than Barney. 
"Barney" is well liked by all his classmates and if you are in need he 
will always lend a helping hand. The best of luck to you "Barney."

Howie is one of our army veterans who has a good start in raising 
young stock. He is the proud father of two children. Howie is a con- 
scientious worker who usually gets what he goes after. After graduation 
he is going to get that farm of his own in Maine. We know he will make 
it and wish him the best of luck.

One outstanding way of stating "Rick's" ambition, is to mention 
the word party. There never was anything more important to him 
than having a good time. Ninety per cent of the parties at A.T.G. were 
attributed to him. Of course being treasurer of the fraternity had no 
bearing whatsoever on the matter. He claims to have no hobbies, but 
what "Rick" doesn't realize is that people are his hobby. His ability to 
mingle with strangers and make immediate friends is a gift few people 
have. "Rick's" future plans are uncertain but whatever they are, we'll 
never have to worry about him getting by.

Horticultural Show 1, 2; Olericulture Club 1, 2 

Bunny's professors and classmates learned to wait patiently for the 
8:01 Hatfield Express so that Bunny wouldn't miss any of the lecture. 
Sometimes the Express was a little late, but we excused that because 
we knew that he was trying hard. Bunny left after the third semester 
to serve his country. When he returns, he plans to graduate and then 
work with his Dad on the farm.

Webber left the cranbery bogs of Wareham to learn more about his 
business at Stockbridge. We're as sure Webber has acquired his knowl- 
edge as we are sure that he has given us a friend that we can count on 
at any time. 

Webber will feverishly argue with anyone who would dare compare 
Cape Cod with any other part of the country, or A.T.G. with the other 

We'll all remember Webber as an athlete, a friend, and a fellow w'no 
can't get along with or without women. Upon graduating from Stock- 
bridge, Webber plans to take a trip around the country and then to 
settle down in Cape Cod and raise cranberries, and strawberries. 



Placement: Mayo's Duck Farms, East Orleans, Mass. 

Poultry Club 1 

The class of '51 will always remember "Bob" as the good looking 
and good natured fellow with that bright beaming smile of his. "Bob" 
took his placement training at Mayo's Duck Farms in East Orleans, 
Mass. We are certain that "Bob" gained valuable experience which 
will be of great help to him when he starts in the poultry business after 
graduation. We wish you the best of luck, "Bob." 




Horticulture Show 2; Kappa Kappa 1 

Brownie's main interest outside of Stockbridge was going home every 
weekend. Seems that a Blue Notes Orchestra was the interest. Usually 
by the time Wednesday or Thursday rolled around, Brownie would be 
all caught up on his sleep and be ready for another weekend. A student 
as good natured as they come. Brownie found a firm place as a member 
of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. He enjoys the fundamentals 
for success ambition and initiative and the ability to think clearly. 



Placement: Kydds Dairy, Lowell, Mass. 

Intra-Basketball 2; Dairy Club 1, 2; Football 1; Alpha Tau Gamma 1, 2 
Richard, better known to us as "Dick" is a good natured fellow. He is 
active and well liked by everyone who knows him. His hobbies are 
basketball and pool. As a fraternity man, Dick was most popular and 
could always be counted on to take part in helping to make the social 
events go over in a big way. After graduation Dick plans to start his 
own ice cream and milk business. With his personality and his sports- 
manship we are sure he will be a success in his field of endeavor. 


Fine Turf

Fine Turf Club 1, President; Horticulture Show 2 

John Bulman alias "the lover" is well known among the women's 
social circles. However, he takes time off from his women to study and 
keep up his good marks. John is more mature than the rest of his fellow 
students, could be because he is older, but the main reason is that he 
has been around. His main ambition is to get rich quick, so he therefore 
chose greenkeeping as a career. Well, we all have our idiosyncrasies! 
John has already been employed as a greenkeeper so knows grass 
pretty well. We know he will be a success as a greenkeeper and fellows, 
remember "If you need him Dedham!"

Rupert hails from the little city of Chicopee — just down the road 
apiece. Although he now lives in Springfield, his heart is still in Chicopee. 
He hopes to have a retail growers establishment in Chicopee. Rupert is 
sort of a quiet fellow. Besides having a talent in art as can be seen in 
the yearbook, Rupert shows ability in piano playing. He manifested his 
talent for floral designing in class and also in the Horticulture show where 
he won 1st prize for a 10 x 10 exhibit. His friendly character has won 
him many friends here at school. We are sure he will make a great suc- 
cess in the Florist industry. Rupert, we wish you all the luck in the world.

Jerry is one of the most popular and well liked students of the school. 
He expresses strong deternination in anything he does. He abides by 
rules he sets up for himself and consequently nothing he starts is left 
undone. Anyone coming in contact with him in the future I am sure 
will recognize him by the familiar smile he possesses, and I am sure no 
one will ever forget "udder nonsense" a phrase often used when he voiced 
disapproval. Jerry is a married veteran. He plans to operate and own 
his own dairy farms someday.

Orlando, often called "Oily" for short, has the ambition and eagerness 
to work, which is hard to match. He is very studious during the week, 
but when the weekends roll around he heads home to West Newton. 
"Oily" spent his placement working with his dad and is going into 
business vidth his father after he graduates. Between his newly acquired 
technical knowledge and the experience behind him, he is bound to be 
a great success.

"Sid" plans to return home after graduation and work on his Dad's 
tobacco and beef farm. His eagerness to work and willingness to work 
with others makes us confident that he will succeed in this or any other 
project he undertakes. Sid was manager of the basketball team in his 
senior year and their su(!rcess reflects his good judgment and spirit of

One swell guy, one speed demon, one motorcycle and, of course, one 
ex-sailor. Mix them all together -the result — Don Carney! Girls, he 
is a very willing bachelor, and can he cook! During his Navy career he 
cooked for thousands of sailors, and is still cooking (with gas) for ten 
Stockbridge boys. He not only gives Duncan Hines competition, but, 
also Arthur Murray. His dancing is terriffic! He is graceful as well as 
smooth on a dance floor. Besides keeping all the women happy, he still 
manages to retain good marks in school, being one of the top in Fine 
Turf. His hair-do would make any woman turn green with envy. We 
all wish him the best of luck as a future superintendent of a golf course! 





Placement: Cavallaro Poultry Farm 

Intramural Basketball 1, 2; Poultry Club 1, 2 

One of our farmers from "way back." "Cav" was born and brought up 
on a poultry farm. He expects to return there after graduation if the 
Armed Forces allow him. Though seemingly quiet, he is always ready 
for an argument especially in class, and he still thinks Fords are the 
best cars. We feel confident that "Sibby" wiU give a good account of 
himself as he did at Stockbridge in whatever he may undertake. 




Placement: Skipton's Ice Cream, Springfield 

Dairy Club 1, 2; Alpha Tau Gamma 1, 2 

The things that will bring back memories of Frank are his sense of 
humor and his good sportsmanship. Frank was undoubtedly the greatest 
"target" for "ribbing" in the Dairy Class; yet we've still to see the boy 
lose his temper. Upon graduation Frank expects to work in his father's 
ice cream plant. Frank will undoubtedly be a great ice cream manu- 
facturer. Good luck, Frank.

An explanation of Byron's nickname is not necessary just sit down 
at the table vdth him. He is one of several who obtained a spouse while 
on placement. Byron's scholastic ability is unquestioned as he certainly

"Bob" was sure to be seen on the campus between Monday and 
Friday, but on weekends he takes off in his '41 Plymouth and heads for 
New Bedford and Nancy. "Bob," a product of New Bedford, is a happy- 
go-lucky fellow and is very well liked by all who know him. His favorite 
hobby as everyone knows is caring for his aquarium of tropical fish. 
"Bob" plans to stay away from all cities after graduation. His ambition 
is to own a poultry farm — specializing in broiler production. We all 
know he will make good and wish him lots of luck.

"Dick" attended the University of Mass. at Ft. Devens for one 
year and then came to Stockbridge to get the "know-how" on the 
poultry industry. His fine ability to study has certainly been put to 
use as he is one of our best students. Dick is also interested in sports 
and he participates in many of our intramural contests. Our hat's off 
to you, "Dick," and may you gain success.

"Buzzy" is one fellow who doesn't have to have everything rosey 
before he can be happy. He needs only to describe a rough class and the 
affair seems so ridiculous that everyone laughs. "Buzzy" doesn't believe 
in worrying about a course, but he does believe in doing the work and 
being happy while doing it. We all realize how much "Buzzy" has 
contributed to the class and we are all wishing him the very best. 



Placement: Eliot Creamery, Milton, Mass. 

Football 1, 2; Hockey 1, 2; Dairy Club 1, 2 

"Lukey" will always be remembered for his quick wit, and his hearty 
laugh. His ability as a hockey player was a great asset in producing the 
number of wins the hockey team had. When he teamed up with his 
brother "Buzzy" it was impossible to outdo them as practical jokers. 
We never saw the day that "Lukey" came to class with a grouch on. 
He plans to go into business with his father, of which there is no doubt 
that he will be a great success. To "Lukey" we would like to will a 
world full of laughter, and as long as he laughs, everyone around him 
will laugh.

Ken, the man with the sleek Pontiac, is Woburn's own Cummings, 
the Florist. He is a firm believer in practical application rather than 
theory in the florist business and has led much of the discussion on 
the pros and cons of this subject. Most of us will agree that he is a good 
student and a hard energetic worker. In two years he has not only 
found many new friends but has prepared himself thoroughly for his 
future work. We don't think he will have much trouble securing his 
goal for he has the ability to do it. So we wish you the best of luck, Ken.

many extra-curricular activities. She is always willing to give her friends 
a helping hand. You can't miss Eleanor in a crowd as her bright, fiery, 
red hair stands right out. With the knowledge gained here at Stock-

in the near future. The best of luck, Eleanor.

One of the more active members of our class and well liked by all

he attempted -scholastically or participating in extra-curricular activ-

"Russ" had the honor of being one of four members selected by the 
Future Farmers' of America to visit various farms in England, France,

Dick's ambition is to be a salesman for his father, selling dairy 
equipment. After spending two years with Dick, we have no doubt 
whatsoever that he'll make a good salesman. Dick was always the 
"instigator" when a political argument arose within the class. Even 
though he always started off seriously, he wound up making a joke out 
of the subject. They claim that a salesman needs a good line and a lot 
of luck - Dick has no worry with his sense of humor and sharpness of 
wit. Good luck.

Although a member in good standing of the Forestry Class at Stock-

Dramatics Course at Yale. A leader of the opposition group in every- 
thing. Jerry will never be forgotten by the Foresters. Jerry has gained 
quite a bit of recognition as the outstanding quarterback and passer

truly a rare quality among people today. Anyone who exercises this

Paul, better known by his classmates as the "Leak" will not be for- 
gotten by those who knew him. His classmates christened him the 
"Leak" because campus news was his specialty. He delighted in starting 
harmless rumors and then seeing how far they would travel. His second 
joy was a good argument and he could argue profusely on either side. 
Paul's future plans are a bit unsettled, but probably "Uncle Sam" will 
take care of that. Best of luck, Paul.

of those lucky fellows who is set for the future in taking over his father's 
business. He plans to raise a famUy of three children and we wish him 
all the luck.

"Chicken" may be small, but he makes up for it in the active interests 
he has in school and other activities. He is liked by all those who know 
him, with his quick sense of humor and wit. 

"Chicken" is very fond of playing poker and is considered an expert

Turf Course? Well, that's Donald Kelleher. After listening to him talk 
for five minutes, you can tell that he is Irish. He does, however, take a 
few minutes off from talking once in a while to study. Seriously, he is 
ambitious, studious, and intelligent, and has much to offer his fellow 
students. He is terrific in his English Course, not because his wife is a 
school teacher, but because he studies all hours of the night. We all 
know that he will become a success in his field of work, if he keeps 
plugging. If he keeps pulgging, we know that he will become a success 
as a future greenkeeper.

"Pic" is one fellow who doesn't have to have everything rosy before 
he can be happy. "Pic" needs only to describe a rough class, and the 
affair seems so ridiculous that we all laugh. "Pic" was first recognized 
by his Chewy convertible which sported Jersey plates and an ear- 
splitting dual exhaust which was heard all over campus. We all realize

Hosea is the class mystery. During the week is is helpful and friendly 
with everyone, but come weekend, he disappears and no one knows 
where. Could it be Smith? Fitchburg? Mount Holyoke? What about 
his outside life? What does he do with himself? Is he married? Your 
guess is as good as mine. We do know that he is quiet, very smart, a 
smooth dresser, and good looking. We know that he could make some 
girl very happy, but is he eligible? He can be seen in his sharp two-tone

friendly fellow, who, in the little time he was here, made a large number

Roy has many interests besides poultry two of which are swimming 
and photography. He commutes to school in his old Packard. In his 
spare time Roy would be with the gang in Draper Hall with a cup of 
coifee. When a joke is told, you can immediately single out Roy's 
distinct laugh. Many a time you could find Roy talking to Professor 
Vondell about photography. At the end of a school day Roy would 
head home to his wife. After graduation he will own and operate his 
own breeding farm. We wish you the best of luck, Roy.

Lorraine is a happy-go-lucky girl with a ready smile for everyone. 
Her studies always come first, but they never interfered with her outside 
interests, which have been many and varied. She has always shown 
more liking for the flower, much to the regret of the men. One of the 
ten by ten plots at the Horticulture Show was elevated by Lorraine's 
influence. Her ideas, energy, and talents, were given wholeheartedly 
in anything she chose to do. You have gained much here at Stockbridge 
besides an education, Lorraine. We feel sure of your future success and

left a good paying job As a foreman of a factory, which was making 
tools, in order to become a greenkeeper. They say it takes all kinds of

usually goes blank and you can hear him say daily, "I can't think. 
What's viTong with me?" Turners Falls must have some kind of an 
effect on him, but what? Nobody knows. He is a very willing bachelor

The Animal Husbandry Club is open to any student on campus interested in live- 
stock, but is made up for the most part of University and Stockbridge Animal Husbandry 
majors. The purpose of this club is threefold, and can be stated as follows: 1. It gives its 
members information in the field of animal husbandry that will complement their classroom 
work. 2. It gives them the opportunity to get together socially, and 3. It gives them the 
opportunity to become acquainted with some of the New England agricultural leaders. 

The success of the club was due, in part, to the capability of its officers: president. 
Rocky Bemis; vice-president, Richard Barnicle; secretary, Chuck Simmons; treasurer, 
Byron Clough; and advisor. Professor "Al" Cowan. 

The active interest and support of its members along with the variety of programs has, 
to a great extent, accounted for the size and success of the Animal Husbandry Club 
the largest club on campus. 

The Little International Livestock Show, sponsored by the Animal Husbandry Club, 
is one of the largest events of the year. This year, for the first time, the show was split up, 
with the main event, the fitting and showing contest being held Saturday, March 17, and 
the judging contest on the following Saturday. The reason for this was to give the students 
more time prior to the show in which to fit their animals. 

There were many worth-while prizes for the top men in fitting and showing, and 
judging each class of livestock and also prizes for the top men in overall showing and 
overall judging. This year's show was one of the best, with Grinnell Arena filled to over- 

We were fortunate this year in having some very good speakers for our bi-weekly 
Tuesday evening club meetings. George Davis, dairy farmer of Sterling, Mass., gave a 
talk on pen barns. Dr. Harris of the State Mastitis Laboratory talked on mastitis control. 
Frank Skogsberg, Berkshire County Agricultural Agent, told us about the experience of a 
county agent. Lester Sawyer talked about the operations at Hycrest Farm. 

The year's activities ended in the spring with a barbeque at one of the local parks. 




The eleventh annual Little International 
Livestock Show was again held at Grinnell 
Arena and as usual a lively interest was taken 
by all participants. Held each year in March 
under the sponsorship of the Animal Hus- 
bandry Club, this show is entirely student 
organized and run. All University and Stock- 
bridge students pursuing the livestock pro- 
duction courses are required to fit and show 
an animal of their choice. Modeled after the 
International Livestock Exposition at Chic- 
ago, this show was started in 1938 by Pro- 
fessor M. E. Ensminger, who is now head of 
the Animal Husbandry Department at Wash- 
ington State. 

Under the supervision and guidance of the 
faculty, herdsmen and farm superintendent, 
this show has grown to be one of the highest 
ranking shows of its kind in the nation. The 
first shows had relatively few contestants as 
compared to this year's competition among 
68 students. A lively interest was taken by 
all, and the competition was keen for the 
many prizes and trophies made available by 
livestock enthusiasts of the Northeast, to 
whom the students and school are deeply 

The program of events taking place in this 
year's show were: showing of swine, showing 
of sheep, a bull fight, showing of Herefords 
and Angus, sheep dog demonstration, buck- 
ing barrel contest, showing of Morgans and 
Percherons, parade of sires, co-ed milking 
contest, and the Premier Showmanship con- 

The bucking barrel proved to be the down- 
fall of many of the students, especially those 
who tried practice sessions a few days before 
the event. Those who jumped the gun were 
very apparent by their limping and their 
favoring of sore spots. 

The co-ed milking contest was a major 
task for girls trying to fill test tubes with 
milk. Girls with no previous milking expe- 
rience tried with limited success to squeeze, 
coax, or cajole milk from a cow into a test 
tube, and rush to the finish line. The winner 
of this event, Nancy Motte, received a silver 
cream pitcher donated by the Guernsey 
Cattle Club. 

The winners of the fitting and showing of 
swine were: first, Byron Clough; second, 
Gordon Trott; third, Floyd Ryder. The win- 
ners of the sheep contest were: first, Everett 
Ladd; second, Carroll Mikonis; third, Clifton 

The beef winners were: first, Gilbert Rob- 
ery; second, Albert Lariviere; third, Donald 
Gay. The winners in the horse fitting and 
showing were: first, Jean Sanborn; second, 
Charles Denton; third, Richard Barnicle. 

The eight highest were eligible to compete 
for Premier Showman, the main event of the 
day. The Premier Showman was Gilbert Rob- 
ery with Charles Denton the Reserve Premier 
Showman. The day was ended with a real 
old-fashioned square dance in the Cage.

The Dairy Club, composed of students from the two- and four-year courses, provides 
a social and educational pastime for its members. The club meets twice each month and at 
these meetings prominent men from the industry speak on subjects of interest to the 
members. Refreshments and a bull session bring the meetings to a close. 

Some of the fine speakers who addressed the club this year were: Mr. Judkins, for- 
merly head of the dairy department at the University and presently head of quality 
control at National Dairies; Mr. Hinkley, engineer at Cherry Burrell; Mr. Colvin of 
DeLaval; and Mr. Michaels, assistant director of pure foods and drugs. 

As the Shorthorn goes to press, the Dairy Club is busy making preparations for the 
Dairy Classic which will be held in May. A committee consisting of Frank Galvin, Pat 
Griffin, Bob Hamilton, and Bob Goldrick has been appointed and these men with the 
help of all club members plan to make this year's Classic the best of all times. They hope 
it will be outstanding and the goal of future Classics. 

It is difficult to say how much knowledge the students will carry with them as they 
leave the campus and go out into the world, but it is safe to say that they will carry with 
them the fond memories of the many enjoyable moments spent with their friends at the 
Dairy Club. 

A word of thanks to Doctor Hankinson who was always willing to lend a helping hand 
and made it possible for the club to hear many interesting speakers.

Club officers: President, Ralph Kinsler; Vice-President, David Ethier; Treasurer, 
Roger Pihl; Secretary, Betty Makela; Assistant Secretary, Eleanor Cutler; Sergeant-at-Arms, 
Paul Kivikoski. 

The Poultry Science Club serves to bring University and Stockbridge Poultry Majors 
together to share interests and ideas. This year, with the able guidance of Professor John 
H. Vondell, our faculty advisor and officers, Ralph Kinsler, Dave Ethier, Betty Kakela, 
Roger Pihl, Eleanor Cutler and Paul Kivikiski, we are proud to report a year of many 
and varied accomplishments. 

Our season commenced with a meeting on November 7, 1950, which was highlighted 
by movies on "Increasing Poultry Profits" and "Chicken of Tomorrow" by Professor 

Two weeks later, Mr. Eben Wood, a well-known "back fence" philosopher and writer, 
informed us of his views in the poultry world. 

On December 5, Mr. Edward Larabee of Peterboro, N. H., informed us of his latest 
breeding experiments with White Barred Rocks. 

At the January 9 meeting we were privileged to hear an informative talk on "Profitable 
Broiler Raising" by Raymond Ryder of Wilbraham. Mr. Ryder distributed tickets to the 
Boston Poultry Show which were greatly appreciated by the members of the club. 

On February 13 we were given some valuable tips on "how personality contributes to 
success" by Mr. P. L. Sanford of the Allied Mills, Springfield. 

At a later date, the members held a social get-together at the Gables where roller 
skating was enjoyed by all. 

One of the main features of our meetings was the appetizing refreshments served by 
our refreshment chairman, Lee Larson. 

We were justly proud of our basketball team which made a record of seven wins and 
one loss. 

The year was climaxed by the traditional banquet held this year at the Bloody Brook 
Inn in South Deerfield. Our guest speaker was Director Frederick J. Sievers. Our president 
welcomed the incoming officers and wished them an even more successful year when they 
return from Placement. Since the freshmen went on Placement the following day, it gave 
the seniors an opportunity to wish them luck at their summer placement. The banquet 
brought our social activities to an end with a memorable evening for all. 



During this year all of the phases of agriculture at the University of Massachusetts 
have been brought together as a School of Agriculture and Horticulture. In this new 
school all instruction, research, and extension workers are united into a team to serve 
students, farmers, homemakers, and others of the Commonwealth. 

The Stockbridge School of Agriculture is now a part of the unified program — in fact, 
it is one of the most important parts. The young men and women who are students in the 
Stockbridge School are receiving the latest in technical agricultural education and will 
some day be the leaders in the important agricultural industry in this state. What they 
have learned in these two short years will give them a good start. In the future we hope to 
keep them learning the new developments of research and of agricultural knowledge 
through our various conferences and short courses, our bulletins, and the Extension 
Service — both State and County. 

Agriculture can succeed and hold its place in the economy of our great country only 
if its member farmers and skilled technicians maintain the same level of efficiency as do 
the workers in the other segments of our economy. This can be done through research and 
education. We are here to serve you now and in the future by keeping you informed —we 
hope you will continue to look to us for new developments and new ideas.

The Forestry Club is composed of a group of Stockbridge and University students 
who are majoring in forestry, plus any other persons who are interested in forestry prob- 
lems and conditions throughout the country. 

Meetings are held bi-monthly with many outstanding foresters and men in related 
fields invited to speak. 

A spring outing is held by members of the club at which time contests in chopping, 
cross-cut sawing and log rolling take place. 

The intense interest shown by club members, with the able assistance of faculty 
advisers William MacConnall and Alton B. Cole combine to make the forestry club a 
great success.

The purposes of the Arboriculture Club are to promote better relationship between 
men in the various phases of the arboriculture field and the members of the club; to have 
speakers acquainted with the problems involved in their work and the latest improvements 
in technique and equipment; to keep in touch with the alumni as to their activities, and 
to receive from them suggestions as to possible improvements in the subjects covered in 
the course of instruction given at the University, and to promote social activities among 
the club members. 

Field trips were made in conjunction with the work of the classroom. These included 
a trip to Quabbin Reservoir, for the seniors, to observe forestry techniques and to collect 
samples of fungus diseases. There was also a trip to Springfield to observe methods em- 
ployed by that city's forestry department, and to end the year the seniors made a three- 
day trip to Stamford and Stratford, Connecticut, and to the New York Botanical Garden. 
A trip to the Lombard- Governor Corporation, at Framingham, was made by the freshman 
class to observe the manufacture and assembly of several models of the Lombard power 
saw. Both classes attended the Massachusetts Tree Wardens and Foresters Association 
meeting at Boston, in February, and the Dutch Elm Disease discussion panel at the 
Waltham Field Station. 

Speakers included Colonel Dodge of the Dodge Associates of Wenham and Mr. John 
Duffy of Hortney Tree Surgeons of Dedham. 

An annual contest was held in March between all members of the arboriculture class 
and members of private concerns and municipalities. The event included log-chopping, 
rope-climbing and throwing, two-man cross-cut saw teams, and shimmying. This contest 
was held to compare and maintain proficiency in each of these phases for both students 
and men in the field. 

The success enjoyed by the club was due to the able leadership of its officers, the 
enthusiasm of its members and the guidance of Mr. Gordon King, advisor.

The Horticulture Club consisted of members of Stockbridge students and other 
students who exhibited an interest in the large field of horticulture. 

Many interesting and enjoyable evenings were had by members and visitors in Wilder 
Hall. The hard and excellent work of Richard Gallant, the Club's program chairman, was 
brought to light by the guest speakers and programs he arranged. Prof. Lyle L. Blundell, 
professor of horticulture on campus, was guest speaker on two different evenings. Dr. 
Arthur B. Beaumont, soil conservationist at the University, lectured one evening on 
"Organic Gardening." Dr. Henry Rohrbach, from Andover, Massachusetts, gave an after- 
noon lecture on "The Care of Flowering Shrubs." In the evening, before a group of fifty, 
he continued in detail on the subject of pruning flowering shrubs. 

The Club had three honorary members from the Landscape Department on campus. 
They were Prof. Lyle L. Blundell, Paul N. Procopio, and Thomas S. Hamilton. The faculty 
adviser of the Club was Paul N. Procopio. 

A refreshment committee supplied a lunch and soft drinks after each meeting. Many 
times the guest speaker was cornered for an hour or two by students after each meeting. 
On other occasions, political and worldly discussions kept members and visitors after 
hours in old Room B.

The 38th Annual Horticulture Show opened its doors 
at 4 p.m. Friday afternoon, November 3, to allow a crowd 
of over 21,000 people to enter, despite the rainy weather 
which prevailed over the entire three days of the show. 

At 8 p.m., on the evening of the opening day, Miss 
Eunice Diamond was crowned "Flower Queen." She was 
attended by Miss Joan Hartley and Miss Judy Sanders. 

As always, the show took place in the spacious, glass- 
roofed cage of the Hick's Physical Education Building. 
Student workmen, the majority of whom were Stockbridge 
students, began work on Wednesday morning, November 1, 
at 8 a.m., and completed their job of construction by 4 p.m. 
on Friday afternoon. The only time taken off, except for 
sleeping, was for a short break on Thursday night when 
everyone willingly stopped work to choose "their" queen. 

When a spectator entered the cage from the west en- 
trance he immediately came upon the main feature, a 
typical New England backyard. In one corner was a raised 
terrace upon which set lawn furniture of the latest style. 
Along one edge of the level, spacious, green lawn was a wide 
flower bed made up of many hardy fall flowers. The garden 
was backed up by a neatly trimmed hemlock hedge. There 
was a large oak "growing" out of the center of the lawn. 
In the opposite corner from the terrace was a well-con- 
structed tool house, complete with tools. Adjacent to the 
tool house was the home vegetable garden, ready for har- 
vesting. A line of small fruit trees made this home food 
supply complete. Nearest to the main feature was the home 
picnic area, which was shaded with pine trees. 

The Forestry Department had a scene showing the cause, 
effect, and remedy of forest fires, which was backed up by 
a very colorful and skillfully painted mural of forested hills. 
The Floriculture Department built a retail florist's show win- 
dow, which had corsages on display for a U. of M. football 

The Arboriculture Department had a front yard with 
shade trees that were in the process of having various types 
of tree work done to them. Also on display were some exam- 
ples of insects and diseases that attack trees. The Pomology 
Department had two giant squares of red apples with S.S.A. 
and U. of M. spelled out in yellow apples. An outline map of 
the State of Massachusetts was made with cranberries. They 
also displayed many different varieties of apples and cran- 
berries grown in Massachusetts. 


The Landscape Architecture Department built a cross- 
section of a home, the grounds showing the materials of 
the sub-levels in the lawn, gradens, walks, terraces and pools. 
The Olericulture Department had a very realistic farmhouse 
and cornfield in miniature, with all the added touches in 
shrubbery and mason work which was finished off with an 
excellent rural background. 

Wildlife Conservation had an educational exhibit which 
told the story of damage done by the common gray squirrel 
to power lines, and which gave information about the deer 
and other forest animals. 

Smith College exhibited a beautiful Japanese garden 
with a waterfall of white fiower heads pouring down into 
the center of the garden. 

Members of the Holyoke and Northampton Florists' 
and Gardeners' Club had exhibits which consisted of hun- 
dreds of chrysanthemums, carnations, snapdragons, besides 
many potted plants. Butler and Ullman and Montgomery 
had striking displays of roses, which added much color to 
the show. 

Any student who wished, could construct an exhibit of 
his own design in an area 10' by 10'. These students' exhibits 
were placed in four classes and were in competition with 
each other. The judges for all exhibits were: Professor Kate 
Koch of Smith College, Professor Harold Perkins of the 
University of Connecticut, and E. O. Parsons, garden editor 
of the "Worcester Evening Gazette." 

Stockbridge students that were winners in the 10' by 10' 
exhibits were as follows: 

Class 1 . . . Architectural — First prize, "Home Freezer," 
Lorraine Selmer and Paul Rogers. 

Class 2 . . . Formal — Second prize, "Ecstacy," Rob.ert 
Wyman, Paul Metcalf and Leon Kakitis. 

Class 3 . . . Informal — First prize, "Time Out for Tele- 
vision," Carlton S. Mason, Donald McCoUister and Joseph 
McCrea. Second prize, "Sit Awhile," Arthur Phillips and 
Richard Morse. 

Class 4 . . . Naturalistic — First prize, "Marshland," 
Rupert F. Burzynski, Robert Eaton and Wilfred Hooper. 

The State Award for students' exhibits was given to a 
formal study called "Solitude" by Jack H. Sheehy and 
James K. Rumrill.

The Olericulture Club may be only in its infancy but the educational and recreational 
matter it offers to its members definitely is not of infantile aptitude. Each and every one 
of the tri-weekly meetings holds something of educational value and interest not only to 
olericulture majors but also to welcome guests majoring in other fields. The refreshments 
served are also attracting. 

Speakers present this year covered everything from commercial production and selling, 
by Mr. Potter of Springfield, to plant breeding by Doctor Pearson, research mastermind 
for Eastern States Farmers' Exchange, who highlighted his talk with slides taken in all 
important plant production centers of the United States. The club was privileged to have 
world traveler H. F. Clay, graduate of the University of Hawaii and now a graduate student 
at the University of Massachusetts, give an excellent illustrated talk on the floral wonders 
of Hawaii. Other speakers who were heard during the year were Lewis Norwood, Worcester 
county agent and Warren Porter, a Massachusetts commercial vegetable grower. 

Club membership is open to both Stockbridge and University students. All meetings 
are held on an informal basis allowing students and faculty to become better acquainted. 

This year's activities were climaxed by a banquet which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Under the leadership and watchful eyes of Professor Thayer and Winslow Johnson, 
the Floriculture Club has been able to hear and get a chance to talk with such prominent 
men as T. E. King, vice-president of Lord and Burnham Co., H. E. Clay, a brilliant 
graduate student, and Dr. Ames from the Waltham Field Station. Wide and varied fields 
were covered and the club has had a most successful year. The officers who so ably guided 
us were: Winslow Johnson, president; Wilfred Hooper, vice-president; Lorraine Selmer, 
secretary; and William Marley, treasurer.

The Pomology Club, composed of University and Stockbridge students majoring in 
Pomology, held monthly meetings for which they engaged speakers affiliated in some phase 
of the pomology field. 

In preparation for the Horticultural Show, the club held weekly meetings at which 
time adopted the plan for the exhibit and appointed committee chairmen to carry out the 
plan. The exhibit was called the "Table of Varieties." The focal point of this exhibit was 
a map of Massachusetts inlayed with cranberries. 

The club voted to participate in the Harvest Show, sponsored by the Massachusetts 
Society of Horticulture. A volunteer committee traveled to Boston to set up an exhibit 
which won first prize and $50. 

A majority of the club's members will graduate this year, and will carry memories 
of good times which they will never be privileged to relive.

October 3, 1949 was the big day. Yes, that was the day that we, as freshmen, entered 
Memorial Hall to register as members of this strange new school. We were slightly appre- 
hensive as to the future, but the greatest surprise was to be in the number of friends we 
were to make and the good times that were to come. 

After the first few days of bewilderment over schedules, finding the right rooms and 
standing in the book-store line, we became a part of the campus. 

Our first convocations supplied us with the information we would need to fulfill the 
traditions and rules of the School. At one of these meetings we elected our class officers. 
They were: President, Robert MacKenzie; Vice-President, Floyd Ryder; Treasurer, Dick 
Trenholm; and Secretary, Charles Lane. We also elected the student council members who 
were to represent us. They were: Robert MacKenzie, Russell Davenport, Edward Heath, 
Jerry Callahan, and Peter Mason. 

The Stockbridge football team was studded with men from the freshman class. Their 
record was not too impressive but much of this was due to the many injuries that plagued 
Steven Kosakowski's charges. 

I remember how many "oh's" and "ah's" were emitted by those of us who had never 
seen the cage transformed to the outdoor scene which it was at the time of the Horticultural 
Show. We were impressed also with the cordiality of the seniors on the night of the Fresh- 
man Reception dance. 

Soon we were to have mid-semester exams and then home for Thanksgiving for 
recuperation and indigestion. 

Our boys again turned out to support the school colors for Coach Kosakowski in 
hockey and in basketball and made a very fine showing. On February 25 the freshman 
class returned the dance given by the seniors and at the same time marveled at the snow 
sculptures across the campus erected for the Winter Carnival. On the third da5'^ of April 
we reported at our jobs for placement training. 

Back to school in October, but this time it was not a thing to be wondered at, but a 
chance to get back to campus to see our buddies and to swap stories of our placement 
experiences. Some of the faces we had hoped to see were missing because of the armed 
forces, marriage, or some other promising opportunities. 

We were kept quite active that fall with a busy schedule, following the football team 
and preparing for the freshman reception dance which was held in Memorial Hall on 
November 18. The Hort show, prepared by those in the School of Horticulture, was a 
great success. 

Time went fast and it seemed like no time at all before the Christmas recess had come 
and gone and we were again preparing for our final examinations. All this time the main 
topic of conversation was of the draft and the very serious Korean situation. Many of our 
friends and former classmates had left or had been called to do their bit. 

This year the lack of snow restricted the erection of any of the sculptures we had 
looked forward to. The return dance by the freshmen was presented on February 17 
shortly before they left us for their placement training. 

We were interested in the Little International Livestock Show held on March 17 
and the Dairy Classic on May 5. 

As usual, finals occurred in the midst of fine spring weather. On May 27, the big day 
for which we had all been looking forward to arrived: Commencement! and our journey 
through Stockbridge was ended. 


The Stockbridge seniors played host to the Stockbridge freshmen at a reception dance 
held in Memorial Hall November 18. 

Through the efforts of Bob MacKenzie and colleagues, Billy Vincent and his orchestra 
were engaged to furnish the music. The orchestra started playing a little after eight, while 
the student celebrities drifted in at a slow rate from eight to nine-thirty. 

The decoration committee, headed by Floyd Ryder, did a marvelous job at decking 
the hall in keeping with the building rules for decorating. Although streamers and balloons 
are nothing new to the decorating business, the colors and arrangement were unique and 

At ten p. m. intermission was called and the couples casually retreated downstairs to 
the refreshment table. Dick Trenholm, chairman of the refreshment committee need have 
no regrets about what the guests found when they arrived. From all appearances the dancers 
enjoyed the bountiful repast. 

The music resumed about ten-thirty and the dancing continued until midnight. The 
committees, totaling eight, produced a dance that will long be remembered by those who 
were fortunate enough to attend.

With the loss of Professor Mathieu, the Stockbridge Glee Club found itself without a 
director for this year. Rather than disband as a singing group, Phil Handy, the president- 
elect, sought to join the remnants of the Stockbridge Glee Club to the Men's Glee Club of 
the University. 

Under this plan, the Stockbridge fellows had the pleasure of participating in a Christ- 
mas Concert sponsored by the Men's and Women's Glee Clubs of the University. 

This concert was held in Bowker Auditorium, December 14. Tickets were sold and the 
proceeds were divided equally between the two glee clubs. 

At a later rehearsal of the Men's Glee Club, plans were made for a minstrel show 
which will be presented the latter part of May. 

The men of the Stockbridge Glee Club take this opportunity to thank the men of the 
Men's Glee Club of the University for the pleasure derived while working with them. 

Winter Carnival Week was held during the 
week of February 11 through the 17th. Old 
man Winter had the situation well in hand by 
depriving the campus and skiing grounds of 
snow for which the carnival weekend is noted. 
Such winter sports activities as skiing, tobog- 
ganing and snow sculpturing, which are the 
main attractions of the carnival weekend, 
were called off. Despite the lack of snow and 
outdoor winter sports, the rest of the activ- 
ities proceeded in fine fashion with the main 
attraction the Winter Carnival Ball, taking 
place on Friday evening, February 16. 


Interclass Plays 

A large audience in Bowker Auditorium 
cheered, moaned, and applauded as the an- 
nual interclass play competitions progressed 
on Monday evening, February 12. 

The freshman play, "Special Guest" placed 
first in the judges' opinion and actually re- 
quired acting of very exacting nature. 

The senior class play, "A Night in the 
Country" took second place. This depicted 
a city-bred family's uncomfortable night in 
the country. 

The unexpected difficulty incurred by ill- 
ness of the female lead in the junior class 
play, "Balcony Scene," did not prevent the 
cast from performing the play to perfection. 

The sophomore play, "Luncheon for Six," 
drew more laughs from the audience than any 
other play put on. Jim Stapleton of the senior 
class was chosen the best actor and Shirley 
Hastings of the freshman class was chosen 
the best actress. 

The judges were: Professor Arthur Williams 
of the English Department, Mrs. Lillian 
Ryan, house mother of Sigma Delta Tau, 
and Mr. Clement Schuler, director of the 
Amherst College band. 

M'inter Carnival Rail 

Approximately 1000 students saw Barbara 
Gates crowned Winter Carnival Queen at the 
annual ball held on Friday evening, February 
16, in the Physical Education Building Cage. 

Chosen for her photogenic qualities by 
three outstanding photographers, Paul Kraus 
of Springfield and George Woodruff of Bos- 
ton, both professionals, and John Vondell of 
Amherst, a widely-known amateur photog- 





rapher, Barbara was crowned with colorful 
flowers by President Van Meter of the 

Selection and crowning of the queen cli- 
maxed the evening for the 500 couples who 
attended. The throne, draped in red cotton 
material, was the center of interest in the 
professionally decorated hall. The colored 
stars overhead and the large, three dimen- 
sional snowman revolving to the right of the 
dance floor attracted much attention. Billy 
Butterfleld's orchestra provided dance music 
for the ball. 

Water Ballet By Naiads 

On Sunday, February 18, approximately 
400 people crowded around the campus pool 
at the Physical Education Building to see the 
water show presented by the Women's Water 
Ballet Association. The theme of the pro- 
gram, "Toyland at Midnight," consisted of 
five numbers complete with lights, props, 
costumes and music. The show opened with 
eight girls as toy soldiers in a march followed 
by the antics of a comedy trio doing the 
"Teddy Bear's Picnic." The next numbers 
were a Toyland foxtrot and the "Waltz of the 
Dolls." The hour long entertainment closed 
with a grand finale of 12 girls swimming to 
the "Evening Prayer" from Hansel and 

Flo-wer and Fashion Show 

An outstanding feature of Winter Carnival 
Week was the fourth annual Co-ed Fashion 
Show, on the evening of February 14, spon- 
ored by the Florticulture and Home Eco- 
nomics Clubs. A wide variety of men and 
women's clothing was featured, many of 
which were complemented by artistic floral 
designs. Eighteen models participated fea- 
turing various costumes for all occasions. 
Ably assisting were four men who presented 
the latest styles in men's apparel. All fashions 
were received by the large audience. Misses 
Barbara Knopka and Ann Morrill were 
chosen by the judges as contestants for Win- 
ter Carnival Queen. 

Sport Dance 

After the Springfield game on Saturday, February 10, a sport dance was held in the 
Drill Hall. The crowd filed into Drill Hall and danced to the music of "The Lord Jeff 
Jesters." The feature attraction of the dance was the choosing of a co-ed to be a candidate 
for Queen at the Winter Carnival Ball. 


Maroons Triumph Over Ncm' Redmen 

Springfield defeated the University of Mass. on Saturday, February 10, before a 
capacity crowd which witnessed practically a whole new starting quintet, the score being 
67 to 53. The Redmen may have lost the game but they showed plenty of drive and spirit 
which was evident in the 33-25 half-time lead they had over the opposition. Using the fast 
break and taking advantage of every scoring chance the Redmen were able to keep ahead 
of the opposition, but the second half was their downfall. The big guns for the winning 
team were Burke with 21 points and Alan Schutts who threw in 19 points. Even in the 
loss the crowd was pleased to see the good work of Bordeau, Morgan, and Barrett. None 
of the three had previously been in the starting lineup and all came through by scoring 
more points in the game than they had amassed during the whole season. Paul Bordeau, 
Morgan, and Gagnon each had 13 points. 

Stockbridge Beats Jayvees, 73-58 

On Tuesday afternoon Stockbridge basketball quintet defeated the University J. V. 
basketball team. The Stockbridge quintet coached by Steve Kosakowski was trailing at 
the half, but being a strong second half club, they managed to defeat the Jayvees by 15 
points. High scorer for Stockbridge was O'Neil who poured 24 points through the hoop, 
while Bob Alerson scored 19 points for the Jayvees. Of the 73 points scofed by the winners, 
only seven were foul shots. 

Redmen Defeated By Rhode Island, 75-58 

The Redmen suffered their fourth consecutive setback Tuesday night, February 11, 
at the hands of a high scoring Rhode Island qumtet. Once again it was the second half 
which caught up with the Redmen as they were unable to keep up with the fast pace that 
Rhode Island set. High scorer for the evening was Baird of Rhode Island with 18 points, 
and high for the Redmen was captain Ray Gagnon with 14 points, who sank eight of nine 
free throws. The win was Rhode Island's seventh of the year as against 11 setbacks, and 
fixed the Redmen's record at five and eight. 

Little Indians Finally Beaten 

The University of Massachusetts freshman basketball team won five straight games 
against strong opposition before bowing to the Holy Cross Frosh Saturday night, Feb- 
ruary 17, at the Cage, 74 to 58. Previously, the U. M. hoopsters downed a strong Rhode 
Island aggregation easily by a convincing 58-43 score. Although outscored by only one 
basket in the second half, it was the poor first half showing that spelled defeat for the 
University of Massachusetts frosh as they wilted under the relentless attack of Palazzi 
who scored 31 points, and Ronnie Perry, the highly touted former Somerville High star 
who set up mostly all of the Holy Cross plays. Ed Lally took scoring honors for the Little 
Indians with 16 points.

The Charles H. Hood Dairy Foundation Prize of $200 is awarded annually to three 
seniors who in the judgment of a special faculty committee have made an outstanding 
scholastic record in their Animal Husbandry course and who, because of their practical 
qualifications, personality and character, seem best qualified for success in this field. 

This year the First Prize was $100; the Second Prize $60; and the Third Prize $40. 

The First Award was presented at Stockbridge Convocation on Wednesday, March 21, 
by Professor Richard C. Foley of the Animal Husbandry Department to Richard Went- 
worth, S-51. Dick is a Hampshire County farm boy, being raised on a good Ayrshire and 
fruit farm in South Amherst. He spent a very profitable Placement Training period of 
six months at the famous Strathglass Farm Ayrshire Herd in Port Chester, New York 
under Gus BowUng, manager, and David Gibson, herdsman. His long-term goal is to own 
and operate a purebred Ayrshire herd and dairy farm. 

The Second Award went to John R. Smith, S-51, from Waltham, Massachusetts in 
Middlesex County. John is not farm bred but spent ten summers before a period of service 
in the Navy on a general farm growing livestock and potatoes. After serving in the Navy 
from 1940-46, John came to Stockbridge and his ambition is to become a dairy farm owner 
and to breed good Holstein cattle. He spent his six months Placement Training on the 
University of Massachusetts Farm under Professor M. L. Blaisdell. 

The Third Award went to a farm-bred boy from North Adams in Berkshire County, 
R. Alan Gleason. He returned to the home farm for his Placement Training, where the 
income from a small registered and grade Guernsey herd is supplemented by small poultry 
and market gardening enterprises. His plans after graduation are to return to the home 
farm to enlarge and improve the present herd so that eventually it will be a completely 
registered herd of Guernsey cattle.

Many thanks to the members of the Student Council for their unselfish gift of time 
and energy in performing the necessary tasks which fall to these each year. This year, 
as before, the Student Council has striven to accomplish that which is desired by the 
student body. Through their efforts and the cooperation of David Richardson and his 
very able staff of reporters news of Stockbridge interest was constantly being sought for 
and pfinted in the "Collegian." 

Following the very fine example of sportsmanship and diplomacy set for them by 
last year's class the Council members again volunteered to greet out of town teams as 
they arrived to play us and saw to it that they were neither without shower or locker 

Matters concerning convocations, freshman hazing, class rings, speakers and class 
news were constantly being discussed and acted upon to the best interests of the student 
body. Thanks again, Council, for a good job well done. 

Members: President, Jerry Callahan; Vice-President, Carlton Mason; Secretary, 
Russell M. Davenport. Senior members: Ex ofiicio officers; Robert MacKenzie, senior 
class president; Milton Sherman, president KK; Robert Wyman, President ATG; Gerald 
M. Desmond. Freshman members: Ex officio officers; Vincent Finelli, freshman class 
president; Gene S. Wiezbicki, Richard E. Abbott; Stanley P. Priest; Robley N. Evans.

Several Stockbridge seniors pursued reporting duties for the Collegian when they 
returned in the fall of 1950. Stockbridge was allotted a column in the Collegian for various 
items of news. Reports of club meetings, field trips, placement reports, awards and news 
of common interest were recorded weekly under the heading of "Stockbridge News." 
Reporters from the respective majors contributed items of interest in their fields. Publica- 
tions appeared every Thursday. However, during the week of March 26, 1951, the Collegian 
began a bi-weekly publication after half a century of weekly issues. 

Reporters for Stockbridge this year were: Editor David Richardson, Alton Neal, 
Frank Galvin, Henry Metezalar, Edward Ahern, Cornelius Tracy, Sidney Carl, and 
James Mackey. 

Members of the staff would like to encourage the returning seniors to contribute 
news of Stockbridge events to the Collegian next year, ever mindful of promoting the 
good name of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. The experience gained will lay the 
groundwork for those interested in writing in the future for agricultural publications.

4CCT0SAG" is one of the most distinguished achievements that a Stockbridge 
student may attain. It is a recognition given to those who strive, work and 
study to maintain a high level of scholarship during their two years of intensive 

To become a member of "Stosag" one must attain an average of 85 per cent and 
have no mark below 70 for the first three semesters. 

This society was established in 1935 to encourage high scholarship. Engraved 
certificates are awarded to members of the graduating class who have achieved this 
distinction. The name "Stosag" stands for "Stockbridge School of Agriculture", 
"Sto" from Stockbridge, "S" from School, and "Ag" from Agriculture. "Stosag" 
is not an abbreviation, but a distinguishing name selected for one purpose — the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture Honorary Society. 

To all of you who have been recognized by the society, we extend our sincere 
congratulations. May you always set such high standards in all your future under-

by Wolfgang Glaser 

Everybody who is in the 
fortunate situation to consider 
more than his own country, 
will find quite a difference in 
the economical, political struc- 
ture and the cultural back- 
ground. A student, however, 
will recognize first the remark- 
able difference in the school 

It is a known fact, that 
the Europeans, poor after their 

destructive wars and economic depressions have to fight harder for their existence, than 
the average American. Still the United States is the country with vast, when not unlimited 

This fact and another tradition with the tendency for discipline engendered a different 
kind of system. 

Student with the intention to attend a college usually go four years to grammar and 
nine years to high school. The average people have to jgo eight years to a grammar school. 

During high school the students receive a much mJSre intensive, and general education, 
than their equivalent in the United States. With four hours a day, six days a week, with 
only ten weeks' vacation, the student cannot follow the common American advice "Take 
it easy." For this nine years, the student has to take 13 compulsory subjects. He must 
pass satisfactorily each of the main courses in the curriculum and has to repeat all courses 
of each semester if he fails to pass successfully any one of the main courses. 

As a result, a pupil who may "have characteristic lack of ability in languages, cannot 
continue in mathematics or science, until he has made a passing grade in the required 
language course. 

Like everything, the school system has its bright and dark sides. In separating the 
students at the age of 10 or 12 years into high and grammar school pupils, you may create 
two classes of people. In this respect the American school has a great advantage, whether 
you take a college course or not, you are just like the majority, a "high school graduate" 
- -and do not feel superior or inferior, you feel just what you are, a good citizen with 
equal rights and freedom. 

Wolfgang Glaser 

Editor's Note: 

Wolfgang Glaser came to America from Stuttgart, Germany, to study at the University of 
Massachusetts under the sponsorship of the American Farm Bureau in the exchange student 
program. He is enrolled in the Economics course at the University. However, as he is interested 
in agriculture, he is enrolled in the Farm Management and Dairy Husbandry courses at Stock- 


While working at home on my placement, 
I received a visit from the State Supervisor 
of Agriculture. Much to my surprise he gave 
me the chance of a lifetime. I had been 
chosen by the Future Farmers of America, 
an organization of which I had been a mem- 
ber for seven years, to represent the North- 
eastern United States in an exchange with 
some young English farmers. 

On June 13, three other F.F.A. men and I 
left Idlewild Airport. Our travel carried us 
to Gander, Newfoundland; Shannon, Ire- 
land; and finally to London. 

While in England I was a guest of the 
"National Federation of Young Farmers' 
Clubs of Great Britain" which is much the 
same as our 4-H Club. During the summer I 
was stationed at thirteen different homes of 
Young Farmers. As nearly all these farms 
were different I had a chance to see nearly all 
types of farming including: dairy, sheep, 
beef, grain, fruit, vegetable, and general 
mixed farming. 

Much to my surprise I saw a great deal of 
modern machinery. As a contrast there is a 
great deal of hand labor. The reason being 
that there are so many people in that small 
island. Nearly every available inch of land is 
utilized for the growing of food or shelter. 

During my visits this summer I met some 
very interesting and friendly people. The 
English farmers are really very nice and are 
the perfect hosts. 

When our tour of the farms was over, we 
spent three weeks in London before flying 
on to Paris and Amsterdam. 

This really put the finishing touches on an 
interesting and educational trip.

is a dairy and grain farm.

In discussing the marketing 
of his apple crop, Mr. John 
Chandler, former Commis- 
sioner of Agriculture for Mass- 
achusetts, once said, "A good 
reputation may be quickly es- 
tablished; it is only necessary 
to give each buyer a little more 
than he expects to get; either 
in quantity, quality or service. " 

Whether you are farming 
for yourself or working for an 
individual or firm, the estab- 
lishment of a good reputation 
is one of the first essentials 
for success. It is the doing of just a little more than is expected of you that really counts. 

During the Civil War an engineer on a freight train hauling supplies to the Union 
Army, on one occasion found it impossible to get over a grade. Several times he backed his 
train up in order to get a fresh start hoping that the momentum gained would carry him 
over the top. The engine did not have enough power to do the job even though steam was 
kept up to the popping off point of the safety valve. What was to be done? Finally, the 
engineer filled a water pail with dirt and hung it on to the safety valve. An increase in 
power was the result and this was all that was necessary to accomplish what seemed to be 

After graduation, whatever your vocation, you will faqe at times many problems; 
more inflation, an uncertain economic situation, a possibility of World War III, high 
prices for farms, high prices for stock and equipment, government controls and many 
others. It is taken for granted that you hope to be successful in spite of the difiiculties 
encountered. At times, a few extra pounds of steam will be necessary to put you over the 
top, to accomplish what at first may seem impossible. Give the buyer or your employer 
"more than he expects to get; either in quantity, quality or service."

As in the past years, we seniors, returning from placement, full of enthusiasm, were 
eager to make this, our last year at Stockbridge, the very best. 

The year is fast drawing to a close and soon our college days will be but memories 
of the happy times we all enjoyed at Stockbridge. We will also remember the more diffi- 
cult situations with which we were faced, but this is part of our education and the men and 
women we develop into in the future, depends upon how we face these challenging and 
more difficult situations. 

This "Shorthorn" is your yearbook. Between its covers are the memories we shared 
together. Regard this "Shorthorn" as an old friend. Read its pages, ponder and reminisce 
and then be grateful of the opportunity you had to be a graduate of Stockbridge. 

This yearbook was not made without the tireless efforts of the "Shorthorn" Board. 
Little did we realize the work involved in preparing it. 

At this time, we of the "Shorthorn" Board would like to thank our faculty advisor, 
Professor Rollin "Pop" Barrett, in a humble and sincere manner for all the fine work he 
has done for us. "Pop" has been the faculty advisor for the "Shorthorn" for the past 22 
years. Believe us when we say he is to be congratulated for the years he has served the 
"Shorthorn." Thank you, "Pop." 

We sincerely hope that you who read this "Shorthorn" are well pleased with it because 
we have tried to make it the best yet. 

We also want to wish the class of 1952 our very best — good luck. 




I have already written what 
I thought was a good review of 
the Placement season of the 
class of 1951, but your assist- 
ant editor asked me to write 
more, something more personal 
about individuals. I told him 
the other was sufficient, that I 
had spent considerable time 
on it, and did not wish to do 
more. He is an individual who 
does not take "no" the first or 
second time one says it, so 
here I am again. Some of the 
episodes may seem humorous 
but there is a lesson to be 
gained from them. 

An Arboriculture major 
came to the office and bluntly stated he had been fired, so of course I went into the details 
with him. A foreman and crew were working on a large estate, the student was shown a 
large maple tree which was to be taken down and was told to "top it out," which he did, 
thinking he had done a good job. The boss showed up to see how things were going and 
blew his top when he saw the tree the student had worked on. It was a fine job but the 
wrong tree. There were twin maples that were close together and either the student did 
not listen to directions too carefully or the foreman was careless in giving them. 

I visited an ice cream plant near Boston and was quite surprised at the appearance 
of one of the students working there. He had a beautiful black eye that he could just about 
see out of, a spUt lip which made it difficult for him to talk, and a swollen ear. I wondered 
what kind of an accident he had been involved in, but was told he was a boxer and had 
taken on a man out of his class and got a fine licking. He got paid for it. Know your capa- 
bilities and your limitations. Another of your classmates is a professional boxer but he 
did not fight during the summer as he found he did not have time to train properly. 

I had a bit of an accident this summer nearly severing the end of my index finger in 
a jointer. I am taking up woodworking as a hobby and decided the tools are more dangerous 
than guns. I was in the doctor's office having my finger repaired when in walked a Horticul- 
ture major with his wife, both looking very upset. The student was hardly recognizable 
as all of his features were swollen, with big hives all over his face and body. He had been 
stung by a bee and is very allergic to bee stings. I diagnozed his trouble before he saw the 
doctor as my son has the same problem. An injection in the arm took care of his troubles 
in a short time. He should be prepared for such an emergency by carrying capsules with 
him at all times as he might not be able to get to a doctor quickly some time and it could 
be very serious.

Director of Placement Service 



"I just love my books," a 
Stockbridge girl was heard to 
say one evening at the close of 
a session of studying. A Uni- 
versity co-ed in the room at 
the time looked up in amaze- 
ment, sighed and said, "I wish 
I could say the same." The 
second girl was not unhappy. 
She was a good student. She 
liked campus life. She expected 
to finish college. She hoped to 
have an interesting job (at 
least for a while), but she 
didn't love her books. 

What made the difference? 
A Stockbridge girl carefully 
writes her name in each of her 

books. She writes marginal notes and underlines important statements. And at the con- 
clusion of a course she doesn't hope to sell her textbooks to an incoming student but regards 
each publication as an addition to her professional library. 

The books used by Stockbridge students are of immediate importance. Each student 
is either looking forward to placement training or to graduation and a job or "a place of 
her own." Between the covers of each book lies the answers (it is hoped) to the many 
problems which may confront the student when on the job. A Stockbridge student is 
always in touch with reality. Courses are of a practical nature and a girl knows what she 
wants to do at the conclusion of her training. She is a "doer" with a little of the dreamer 
too. She knows agriculture, as an occupation, provides a high degree of independence 
and self-sufliciency. She knows that any phase offers great variety in each day's work. 
She knows also that farming is a mode or way of life — her mode of life by choice. From 
her books and from experience she knows that this way of living and working with plants 
and animals will satisfy her creative urge as certainly as others may satisfy this universal 
urge through writing, music or art. 

Her books have also told her that in the colonial period 97 per cent of the nation's 
population was working in agriculture. Today it is less than 20 per cent and as farms are 
further mechanized with improved machinery the number of workers will continue to 
decline. The number of farms in the United States has stabilized in the last 30 years to 
something over six million. To man these farms about 200,000 men must enter into farming 
each year. The number of women who play a significant part as independent farmers is 
very small, but the part women play in the total picture of agriculture is great as it is 
great in any field of endeavor. It may not show up in the census figures, but the Stockbridge 
girl is certain there is a place for her. 

Carol Burr Gawthrop 
Placement Officer of Women 


In order to write something a little different this year, I thought it would be of interest 
to summarize the whole Placement Training program for the class of 1950. I hope you will 
bear with me in the use of charts and figures, but that is the simplest and most graphic 
way to present the material. 

The following chart shows the distribution by majors. 





Animal Husbandry 












Fine Turf 




















Vegetable Gardening 




Food Management 








TOTAL 231 34 197 

The 34 men who failed to return to school for the senior year are accounted for as 

1. Nine entered the Armed Forces. 

2. Three failed in class work. 

3. Seven decided they were following the wrong vocation. 

4. Four had family and financial difficulties. 

5. One man transferred to the University of Massachusetts. 

6. One man was failed in placement. 

7. Nothing is known about nine men who completed training but just did not show 
up for registration. I am confident that several of the last group did not return 
because of the draft, enlistment, or other calls to the Armed Forces. 

Number 3 once again demonstrates the value of required placement in aiding the 
student to decide definitely whether or not he is pursuing the proper vocation. 

Of the 231 students assigned to employment, four were women, two in floriculture 
and two in poultry, and all four returned for the second year. 

Students were employed in 124 cities and towns in Massachusetts numbering from 
one to eleven in one town or city. 31 men took placement out of state in 27 cities and towns 
largely in Connecticut, New Hampshire and Vermont. With the exception of a few men 
located at some distance from Massachusetts, each student was visited at least once by 
the Director during the summer months. 

Other happenings of note which I know about during the training period are a ton- 
silectomy, an appendectomy, a broken arm, an eye operation, treatment for bee sting 
allergy, and at least three of the group were married. 

Several students were not contacted personally on these visits due to the fact that they 
were working at some distance from the main office, or were unavailable for other reasons 
such as day off, sickness, etc., but the supervisor did interview the employers. 

Whereas the principal function of the training program is educational in nature, I 
realize that finances are also of importance to the students so I worked out a summary of 
earnings which follows. 

Stockbridao School Placement Training Students (men) — Summer of 1950 

Number of 

Averaj^e Per 






Animal Husbandry 



$ 927.07 












Fine Turf 










Food Management 

























Vegetable Gardening 





227 215 $ 898.77 $193,245.55 

There is a difference of 12 men between the number of students placed and the number 
used in this summary of earnings. This is due to the fact that 11 men dropped out early in 
the work period, one man worked for the experience alone, and does not cover the four 
women students. 

The income is low for Food Management and Forestry because these students are 
employed for approximately three and a half months only, whereas all others work for six 
months, with the exception of Poultry majors whose employment period extends over 
nearly seven months and therefore is higher than the others. 

These earnings are gross incomes and therefore does not indicate that the students 
had that amount of money at the beginning of the second year in October. Where board 
and room was furnished as part of the wages, a figure of $15.00 per week was used which 
is low. Many of you found that it cannot be bought for that figure. 

The money saved from these earnings by the students aided very materially in de- 
^.fraying the costs of the senior year. 

You are graduating at a most difficult time. None of us know just what is ahead but 
we must not get disheartened or discouraged. Keep your chin up, do whatever you have 
to do to the best of your ability and get into your chosen vocation as soon as possible. 

The facilities of the Placement Service are available to you at any time in the future 
and I will be most happy to hear from and to do everything possible to assist you in future 
employment problems. 

Best of luck, 

Emory E. Grayson 
Director of Placement Service

Wentworth Institute 

46 Leicester Junior College 

Coach Stephen Kosakowski greeted approximately 50 candidates for football the last 
week in September. Among the group was a strong supply of holdovers from last year's 
squad. These men, led by Captain Dick Trenholm of Arlington, formed a nucleus for what 
looked like a potentially strong team. After the first week of vigorous practice, limited 
practice sessions were held because of late classes, as in the past. However, Coach 
Kosakowski brought together a first team and drilled them for the opening contest. 
Monson 25 Stockbrldae (i 

The first game played at Monson Academy resulted in a 25 to 6 victory for Monson. 
Most of Monson's scores came on long end-a-round runs. Late in the third period Stock- 
bridge managed to push across a score on a line plunge by quarterback Bob Bishop. 
Vermont Academy 13 Stockbrldge 

The Aggie's second encounter was with Vermont Academy at Saxons River, Vermont. 
This game saw Stockbridge come out on the short end of a 13 to score. There was con- 
siderable improvement, however, and the costly fumbles were probably due to the fact 
that the team was now using the T-formation instead of the single-wing. Vermont scored 
both touchdowns early in the first quarter, and then the two teams settled down to a 
see-saw battle between the 20-yard stripes. 

The game was the opener on a new field which was dedicated in memory of E. K. Hall 
who is responsible for many of the safety rules in football today and who was chairman 
of the National Inter-Collegiate Rules Committee for many years. 

Wentworth Institute Stockbridae 

For the third game of the season the Aggies traveled to Boston to meet a strong 
Wentworth team. This tilt was the turning of the season and the Big Blue showed marked 
signs of improvement. The feature of this game was the savage line play of Paul Metcalf, 
Dick Trenholm, Floyd Ryder, Dave Packard, Bill Collins, Pete Mason, and the dazzling 
backfield play of Bob Bishop and freshman Fred Kelly.

The last game of an abbreviated season found the Aggies stacking up against Leicester 
Junior College at the home field. This game finally brought forth the results of Coach 
Kosakowski's splendid efforts to produce a wmning club. 

Stockbridge had complete control of the ball all afternoon and scored almost at will. 
It was strictly a team victory as numerous players took part in the individual scoring. 
Once again, the line play of Metcalf, Ryder, Packard, Trenholm, Collins, Woods, and 
Mason was superb. The dazzling play of backs Bishop, Wright, Kelly and Stewart left 
nothing to be desired. 

It was a fitting climax for the departing seniors led by Captain Dick Trenholm. It 
also produced an incentive for the freshmen to strive for next year. 

At a final meeting of the entire squad, tackle David Packard and fullback Fred 
Kelly were elected co-captains for next season. These two men were outstanding through- 
out the entire season.

The Stockbridge basketball team had four seniors returning from the '49-'50 season. 
These included: Captain "Jack" O'Neil, "Buzz" Buzzee, Floyd Ryder, and Phil Hall. 
Freshmen turning out for the squad were former Amherst players, "Tuck" Moran, Dick 
Moran, and Tom Eddy. Others used to complete the team were: Dave Freeman, "Howie" 
Clark, "Hunky" Saunders, "Howie" Dunnells, and next year's co-captains, Jack Marshall 
and Joe Hayden. 

When Stockbridge returned from Brattleboro, Vermont on the night of December 13, 
they had won their first game. They had defeated Marlboro 82 to 47. Two nights later in 
Worcester, Stockbridge patterned out another decision by defeating Leicester Junior 
College 43 to 35. 

Returning from the Christmas vacation the "Kosakowski men" kept the ball rolling 
by defeating Western Massachusetts School of Pharmacy 72 to 62 at the University of 
Massachusetts Cage. 

Marlboro College tasted defeat for a second time at the hands of the "Aggies" by 
dropping a 67 to 47 decision at the Cage on January 6. 

Vermont Academy was the "Aggies" next victim. When the final whistle blew Stock- 
bridge had won its fifth straight game. The final score was 76 for Stockbridge, and 59 for 

On January 13, exactly a month after the start of the season, Stockbridge invaded 
Williston Academy's gym. When the dust had settled and the last basket had been scored, 
Stockbridge had tasted defeat for the first time. The final score being 76 to 56. 

Hitting the road for their next game the club immediately registered another win by 
downing the Western Massachusetts School of Pharmacy by a score of 73 to 64. 

January 14 found the "Aggies" still on the road at Monson Academy. Monson, dis- 
playing some of the best offensive ball seen during the season, defeated the Stockbridge 
lads 66 to 57. 

The club traveled to Suffield, Connecticut, on Saturday, January 20, to play the 
New England Prep School Champs, Suffield Academy. The "Aggies" were completely 
under-manned and were soundly trounced 68 to 28. 

The "Aggies" returned home two nights later with the opposition being furnished by 
Westfield State Teachers' College. The boys made a fight of it until the final period when 
the "Profs" opened up to gain a 62 to 54 decision. 

On January 24, Holyoke Junior College visited the University of Massachusetts Cage 
and when the evening was over the Stockbridge Cagers had walked away with an easy 
67 to 34 verdict. 

Taking hardly enough time to get a breath after finals the "Aggies" journeyed to 
Westfield, Massachusetts to take on the State Teachers' College for the second time. The 
boys fell before the sterling offensive play of the teachers. The "Aggies" ended up on the 
wrong end of a 78 to 58 score. 

Three nights later the Stockbridge "hoopsters" provided the opposition for Holyoke 
Junior College. They hit the winning stride again in toppling the "Holyokers" 60 to 45. 

Monson Academy journeyed to the Cage to take on the Stockbridge boys. Monson 
walked off with a 79 to 64 decision. 

The last win of the season for the "Aggies" was over Leicester Junior College. The 
"Aggies" registered a 56 to 46 score for their last tally in the win column. Following this 
game Vermont Academy defeated us 66 to 63, Dean Academy 51 to 48, and Mount Her- 
mon 70 to 60. 

During the year two extra games were scheduled with the University J. Vs. Stock- 
bridge defeated them both times, the second game being a 73 to 38 win.

Back row, left to right: J. Flaherty, R. Oldfield, L. Coveney, J. Durfee, J. Ells. 

As usual the Stockbridge pucksters were hampered by the lack of ice. However, a 
handful of keen-minded skaters, led by Captain George Sullivan, awaited the opening 
tilt in hopes of proving they did not need practice. The squad was composed of seniors, 
Sullivan, Lewis Cummings, Charles Cummings, Francis Galvin, Robert Gregory, Frank 
Wright, James Hanson, James Ells. Freshmen, Manager Robert Oldfield, John Flaherty, 
Laurence Coveney, John Durfee and David Allen. 

Finally, a game was arranged with a good Wilhston Academy team. The Aggies 
brought home the bacon with a close 5-4 verdict. Wright, Hanson, Lew Cummings and 
Captain Sullivan were standouts for the Blue and White. 

Next in line were Mount Hermon Academy skaters who were supposed to be a stout 
test for the Aggies. However, when the sun had settled below the hills, the score read 
Stockbridge 7, Mount Hermon 1. Everybody took part in the scoring barrage with Cap- 
tain "Red" Sullivan performing the "hat trick." Goalie Bob Gregory excelled in the nets 
for the "Big Blue." 

Then came a slack period, sickness and warm weather caused several cancellations. 

However, finally another tilt was arranged with Williston. This time the Aggies made 
sure the verdict would be decisive. They peppered the Willison nets to the tune of 8 to 0. 
The whole team, which consisted of only eight men that day, stood out. The Aggies got 
their only rest by dropping back to defense. Goalies Bob Gregory and Dave Allen turned 
back in grand style all Williston attempts. 

It was an abbreviated season, but one that Stockbridge can sure be proud of.

The returning seniors showed great enthusiasm for the coming year only to be dis- 
illusioned by the new draft law. 

Despite the fact that the world situation had become more serious and was taking its 
toll of fraternity brothers, we began to redecorate the downstairs. 

On October the twenty-sixth, the annual freshman open house was held. Over one 
hundred students and brothers came to movies and refreshments. 

The first house dance was held December the second with everyone in the true Christ- 
mas spirit. 

This year, as in past years, the house was very fortunate in having a house mother 
and father. 

Although many of the winter carnival events had to be called off this year, the boys 
at Kappa Kappa made up for it with a party and a dance. The house was decorated in 
various shades of green for a Saint Patrick's dance on March the seventeenth. On February 
the twenty-eighth we held our annual house banquet at the Hatfield Club where fifty-two 
brothers enjoyed a good steak dinner. 

In March, a final send-off was given to the freshmen in the form of an informal house- 

This year has been a wonderful one and Kappa Kappa Fraternity would like to thank 
everyone who has given help in the year of "fifty-one."

As the senior members prepare to depart into the large vast world to seek the careers 
they desire, there will be many memories of Alpha Tau Gamma which will be carried with 
them always. During the beginning weeks of school the seniors cleaned, painted and 
decorated the house. We were fortunate to have a lot of new furniture this year and also 
a new heating system. Our recreation room has also been completely fixed up for use by 
our members. 

On November 6, the annual invitation of the freshman class was extended to our 
smoker which was a wonderful success. We obtained many pledges who are now members 
of our house. 

Our first dance of the year was called "The Mugwump Dance" held on November 17. 
It was nicely decorated with Halloween lanterns and colored streamers by our social 
chairman, Roger Pihl. The big question of the evening was, "What is a Mugwump?" 
Among other dances held throughout the year was one for the football team. Fun was 
had at all the dances held during the year. 

Our new members this year went through their initiation with flying colors and are 
now bona-fide members of ATG. Our banquet for the welcoming of the freshmen was 
held at Pansy Park, where Larry Hartnett did a wonderful job as toastmaster. 

Alpha Tau Gamma this year has joined the interfraternity council of the University. 
Our delegates were Bob Bishop and Jim Rumrill. Through the council, our house has 
participated in the basketball and bowling tournament with other members of the intra- 
fraternity council. We hope that the members of ATG will in the future keep our mem- 
bership in the council high with honor. 

On Saturday, March 17, the annual freshman farewell formal banquet and dance 
was held at the Roger Smith Hotel in Holyoke. Dr. and Mrs. Hankinson were our guests 
with our fraternity advisor Professor and Mrs. Barrett. Everyone enjoyed himself. The 
food was plentiful and bountiful. Dancing and singing climaxed the evening. Ken Mosher 
sure did a wonderful job as chairman of the dance. 

Among the stag parties, there was one for the freshmen on their departure for farm 
placement. All stag parties were enjoyed throughout the year with movies, talks and 
refreshments for all. 

As the seniors complete their stay at Stockbridge, busy studying and engrossed in 
sports, a banquet was very much in order before leaving ATG. 

The seniors will always cherish the brotherhood that has held us as we studied, worked 
and played as true brothers of ATG. We hope that the freshmen will have as good an 
understanding of honor, work and enjoyment as the senior brothers pass down into this 
large vast world of ours.

The 32nd Stockbridge class began in earnest on a beautiful Monday on the 2nd of 
October, 1950. On this day, we of the freshman class, coming from all corners of this state 
and several other locales, gathered for the first time and underwent the process of regis- 
tration in Memorial Hall. An indicated record size class was not quite realized, but the 
final registration of 239 was well above the average of recent years. 

It seemed to be no time at all before we were deeply engrossed in our studies and time 
to elect our class officers. Although we had hardly time to know each other, even in our 
respective majors, the task was undertaken and a slate of officers nominated and elected 
that have served faithfully and well. 

The football season was not exactly a "flop," but for the many freshmen on the team 
it was rather discouraging until that grand and glorious final game, the one with Leicester 
Junior College, when the "Aggies" romped over the opponents and threatened to lay all 
the Leicester players in a limp and prone state. 

Among the major policy changes we have witnessed in the University this year, 
perhaps the most significant and the one that does and will affect us most was the merger 
of all the agricultural and horticultural courses, including Stockbridge, the Extension 
Service, and the Experiment Station into one School of Agriculture at the University. 

Speaking of our Stockbridge as an integral part of the University, we freshmen are 
proud to have a place in the workings of that institution. We have witnessed earher this 
year a slight dissention among the upperclassmen over journalistic relations and an abortive 
attempt that was made to strike out independently, without experience and unaware of 
the difficulties involved. That matter has since been settled and once more harmony 
prevails. We realize that the very natiu-e and type of school we have here makes it in 
certain ways a separate unit, but we are, and are accepted as a part of the University, 
participating in social, economic, and all other phases of campus life. 

The two major social events of the year for us were the Freshman Reception Dance 
put on by the senior class and the return dance, put on by the freshmen for the seniors. 
Both of these dances were semi-formal and were very satisfactory to those attending. 

The second semester is fast whizzing along. Some of the majors have already departed 
for summer placement service and the remainder will soon follow. In the fall we will return 
to this campus as seniors with practical experience as well as theory under our belts. 
Uncle Sam wilUng, and other conditions being satisfactory, we sincerely hope most of us 
will be back to form our own group, SSA '52.

We of the Shorthorn Board want to take this opportunity to thank all those persons 
who have helped to make this yearbook possible. 

We owe our faculty advisor "Pop" Barrett a special word of thanks for the unselfish 
amount of time he has spent with us in the preparation of this yearbook. 

We wish to thank President Van Meter, Director Verbeck, and Dean Sieling for their 
timely and appropriate messages to us, the graduating class of 1951. 

We are grateful to Professor Robertson, who so skillfully and beautifully designed 
our title page. 

We wish to thank Placement Director Grayson and Women's Placement Officer, Carol 
Gawthrop for their fine articles concerning placement. 

We wish to thank John Snow for the time he has spent with us, after hours, in putting 
the yearbook together. He and "Pop" surely have almost unlimited patience. 

We wish to thank Miss Martin and Miss Heffernan for the time they spent in doing 
research work for the yearbook. 

We wish to thank Mr. Kinsman and Mr. Koldy of Kinsmans' Studio for the work 
they did preparing the senior pictiures as well as class and club pictures for the printer. 

Last but not least, we wish to thank all students who helped to make this yearbook
