DEDICATION 



Professor John Michael Zak was born and 
reared on a dairy and crops farm in the neigh- 
boring valley town of Sunderland, Massachu- 
setts. John learned first hand the routine of 
milking cows, weeding onions, topping tobacco 
and spraying potatoes. But John was interested 
in more than the practical side of agriculture. 

He enrolled at the Massachusetts State 
College and was graduated in 1936 with a 
major in economics. He continued as a graduate 
student in the Department of Agronomy and 
was awarded a Master of Science degree in 
June 1938. 

In September, 1938,Professor Zak became 
an instructor in the Department of Agronomy. 
With the exception of a short period from April, 
1 943 to September^ 945, when he was engaged 
in full time farming operations, John has been 
a member of the Agronomy Department teach- 
ing staff. 

Much of Professor Zak's success as a 
teacher of Agronomy can be attributed to his 
knowledge and understanding of both the art 
and science in agriculture. His students not 
only understand the fundamentals of agronomic 
science, but they also see their application to 
practical agriculture. 

In dedicating this volume of the Shorthorn 
to Professor John Zak, the class of 1 957 honors 
a successful teacher and a loyal friend, one who 
will continue to support a strong Stockbridge 
School of Agriculture.

Time has passed; 

And as each hour has gone before, 

So now the last bell draws near. 

Soon trembling hands will grasp 

The last remaining mooring; 

Our ship will sail upon a course 

Which we have daily charted. 

But now, as the triumphant moment nears. 

Our eyes must turn ahead; 

The road of life has narrowed to a path. 

Thick with strangling weeds , 

Let not your feet become entangled; 

Walk on, and then some day look back 

Upon that moment when the trembling hand 

Cast loose the mooring line. 






FOREWORD 




When we look back into the fading years, 
back through the previous editions of Shorthorn, 
we realize the dynamic growth since 1 91 8. The 
members of The Shorthorn Board sincerely 
hope that this edition will equal or surpass all 
that have gone before. Within the pages many 
memorable hours can be uncovered. In time 
these last golden hours will become treasures 
long to be cherished. 

As future years pass in review, we hope 
to see Stockbridge growing in stature, always 
remaining a symbol of progress.

Here's to the Uncommon Man! Progress 
is primarily, I believe, a function of people 
rather than recognition of the scientific, or 
materialistic, accomplishment at any moment 
of time. You Stockbridge graduates are set apart 
already from the general run of people in that 
you have had the courage and energy to go two 
years beyond high school in specialized training 
and study for your chosen vocation. Of such 
choices in life and its activities are those quali- 
ties that make for the most-needed member of 
the complex and involved society of today — 
the Uncommon Man. Here's to you, then, and 
to your progress toward new and uncommon 
goals! 

J. Paul Mather 
President 





The University of Massachusetts is proud 
of its Stockbridge School of Agriculture and of 
you, our special two-year students. You add a 
spicy ingredient to our campus life. I admire 
particularly your enthusiasm and your devotion 
to the school and university. I trust that you 
will carry this Stockbridge spirit on in your 
life's work and your alumni activities. This year 
has been an interesting and full year of pro- 
gress; you will long remember it. The detailed 
knowledge and techniques you have learned 
may fade in the years ahead. However, I hope 
that the patterns of searching for knowledge, of 
experimenting with new ways of doing things, 
and of learning to live in a complex society, 
such as this university campus, will always be 
a part of your life. 

Shannon McCune 

Provost 




The class of 1 957 has made a good record 
in Amherst and I feel certain that this good 
record will continue after graduation. Some of 
you will take still more formal education, but 
most of you will go to jobs for which you have 
been preparing. Education is never finished, 
and it is important to keep this in mind at all 
times. 

You should be proud of your school. The 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture continues to 
attract national attention — representing sound 
vocational education beyond high school. It is 
probable that more and more two year schools 
will be established in the next ten years — and 
some of these new schools will be patterned 
after Stockbridge. 

Manyof you will find it desirableto join the 
Stockbridge Alumni Association and thereby 
keep informed as to what is going on in Amherst 
as well as get news about your classmates. 

Good wishes to each one of you. 

Fred P. Jeffrey 
Director 



Technological progress is the key to 
modern agricultural production, processing, and 
marketing. Most of the significant advances in 
agriculture have occurred during the past one 
hundred years as a result of intensive research 
and effective educational programs. 

Agricultural progress has usually preceded 
industrial and commercial progress. There 
seems to be every reason to believe that agricul- 
ture will go forward in the nuclear age to even 
greater efficiency. 

Dale H. Sieling 
Dean 





TRIBUTE 




In paying tribute to this great man in the past, 
we look back and see the work he has done for 
the students of Stockbridge. In the present we 
find that he has retired from the teaching staff ; 
but he is still spending his time helping the 
students wherever his service is needed. To the 
Shorthorn he still has the one interest, to see a 
better book put out each year. The picture in 
the future, shows his continued service and 
loyalty to the school. Past, present, and future. 
Pop Barrett will remain in the hearts of many.

Few of us have ever stopped to realize 
that with every wheel their must be a rim, 
every plant must have it's roots; we must have 
our bread and water. It is true that every group 
has its staff. So it is with the short course office. 
They are keeping the wheel running, they are 
the roots of the trees. It is greatly appreciated 
the work that the office staff does in carrying 
out the work of the school.

With the opening of the Student Union, 
the Stockbridge Student Council changed its 
name to the "Student Senate." This change was 
inspiring to the Seniors, who with new-born 
desires, went on to maintain our theme of 
progress through the year. 

This year witnessed the commencement 
of the Stockbridge mixer. We, as senators, hope 
it will become an annual affair. This was put 
on through the cooperation of the senates' 
members. 

The Progress Banquet, Sno-Ball Dance, 
and Stockbridge Day were a few of the events 
put on through the successful efforts of the 
Student Senators. 

This year saw the appointing of a Student 
Senate faculty advisor; Mr. Norman Cournoyer 
will aid the senate in making decisions which 
will require advice of a well informed faculty 
member. 

We as parting elder Senators wish to pass 
on these traditions which were started this year 
and in the past years. As we leave the portals 
of the Stockbridge traditions and mannerisms, 
we hope the Student Senate will be evermore 
progressive in the future.

STOSAG 



Eighteenth annual election by Stockbridge 
faculty advisory committee to encourage and 
recognize high scholastic ability and sound 
practical training. The derivation of Stosag is 
obvious — "Sto" from Stockbridge, "s" from 
school, and "ag" from Agriculture. 

To qualify for election by the Stockbridge 
Advisory the student must have maintained 



an average grade of 3.4 points quality or better. 
This is determined by allowing 4 points for 
every A, 3 points for every B, and 2 points for 
a C. No grades of D or lower are considered. 

Stosag was established in 1935 at the 
suggestion of Professor Miner J. Markuson. 

Congratulations and best of luck to all 
those elected.

director. Bob Ames. Even with this handicap 
the spirit of the organization has not been 
dampened. Cooperation and the ambition of 
the group has brought joy to many audiences 
on and off campus. 

The members include: Art Leiand, first 
tenor; Ken Chase, second tenor; Jim Cronin, 
second tenor; Mike Connor, baritone; Richard 



Clapp, bass; Bob Ames, director and baritone. 

The Octet was invited to accompany the 
University Corale group again this year. During 
semester vacation the two groups conducted 
several concerts in various towns in the eastern 
part of the state. 

Seeing as all the present members of the 
Octet are seniors let us hope that the freshmen 
and seniors of next year join the worthy organi- 
zation.

KAPPA KAPPA 




74 



i 



Each year as time progresses there comes a 
time when you think the bottom has fallen out. 
Such was with Kappa Kappa when only a small 
percentage of seniors returned to their campus 
living quarters at 367 North Pleasant Street. 
Returning to the campus for the last year of an 
unforgettable life they, the seniors, carried back 
with them determination and spirit, to perform 
the duties of the fraternity as they should be. 
The greatest success came when the marvelous 
group of freshmen pledged the greatest frater- 
nity in Stockbridge. 

Social life, which is important in the exist- 
ence of fraternal life, was at its greatest this 
year. To start the ball revolving for the year 
we held our Annual Harvest Party, which has a 
lasting memory to all members. Let us not leave 
behind the sweater, the costume and the Hal- 
loween parties, for they too have some fond 
memories. This year we had a terrific Thanks- 
giving Dinner, prepared with the guidance of 
the Food Management majors in the house. The 
peak of the activities was the pledge formal and 
the annual banquet. A formal, a party, a get 
together, it did not matter; whenever they left 
K.K., they were waiting the invitation for the 
next party. Words can't be found to express 
their thoughts. 

Initiation proved of great value to the 
fraternity this year. Redecorating the house in 
the interior, consisted of the first step. A 
tremendous job was done by all who pledged. 

The molding of snow brought forth the 
theme "Symphony in the Snow" for the Winter 
Carnival. The portals of the past show that 
the present has been the greatest in the history 
of the house, the future has great opportunities. 
We as parting seniors extend the very best of 
luck for the returning freshmen and the future 
of the greatest fraternity, Kappa Kappa. 

Joseph Hayes, 
President

ALPHA TAU GAMMA 



m m cN 




Down the corridor of time, A.T.G. has 
been perpetuated as, "A home away from 
home." This legend has been adopted by the 
class of 1957. The fellows have shown their 
deep concern for A.T.G. by contributing in 
every possible way toward its future growth and 
development. 

Those of us who will graduate this year, 
will always look back, remembering those un- 
forgettable hours at this, "our campus home." 
Will the memories of the Bermuda party ever 
disappear or the Christmas party with its many 
hilarious gifts. Remember the Hobo party and 
the many minutes spent in culturing beards. 
Last, but not least, came the Freshmen initia- 
tions, ending with a formal pledge at the Hotel 
Northhampton. President Mather and Dean 
Jeffrey were the guest speakers. 

Most of the A.T.G. members contributed 
to the school by giving their best in the sports. 
We had several star football and basketball 
players. 

We at 375 North Pleasant Street will 
never forget these last days. We have worked 
as a team, pitching in together, with spirit of 
cooperation and tolerance of others. We have 
learned to live together in peace and quality, 
which in this troubled world, stands alone in 
importance. 

Craig B. Richardson 







Progress 
Banquet 







The spirit of the past has been cast upon 
the present to carry out the ambitions for the 
future of the school and for the individuals. 

In the past one sports award was given for 
football, but this year an award was given to 
a basketball player as well. 

In every team, every sport, there is always 
one player that stands higher than another. 
Many times it is difficult to see his face. With 
the cooperation and spirit of the team for their 
school, it is hard for the coach to see this players 
good standard. 

The first award for basketball was pre- 
sented to Dan Kelliher. The football award 
which has been a tradition was presented to 
Jon Holmes. All players of both teams were 
given certificates for their fine sportsmenship. 
They all deserved a vote of thanks for their part. 

Prior to the presentation of the awards 
everyone enjoyed a delicious meal in the Stu- 
dent Union. 

Dean Jeffrey named the list of honor stu- 
dents for Stosag. He also presented gifts to the 
cheerleaders for their job, well done. 





Senior 
Mixer 



As we stroll down the paths of Stockbridge 
to look into the future of each of the students, 
we see the betterment of Stockbridge at the 
University of Massachusetts, it has grown to 
be one of the great two year school of educa- 
tion. Through the years we find that every class 
has given ideas for the enjoyment of the stu- 
dents. 

The thought occurred: what happens 
when the freshmen come to campus, what is 
the best way for the group to get together to 
meet their classmates? The idea was conceived 
to have a get together between the in-coming 
freshmen and the men of the industries for 
tomorrow, and the Stockbridge Faculty. 

Another main idea of this mixer was to 
acquaint the new members with some of the 
functions of the school. It gave the fraternities 
a chance to talk for the future and progress of 
their house. 

We sincerely hope we, as seniors, have 
helped the freshmen in orientating themselves 
in our great school of the future. 







Horticulture 
Show 




82 




Mother Nature contributed greatly to the 
44th Annual Horticultural Show by sending a 
gift package of spring-like weather wrapped 
with balmy southerly breezes. Almost 25,000 
people were at hand to see our show with its 
appropriate theme of "Music in the Park". 
Mettawampie, the celebrated Indian, stood at 
the entrance surrounded by a breath-taking 
bed of colorful geraniums. At the far end of 
"the park" stood a Victorian bandstand. Peri- 
odical appearances of the Stockbridge Octet, 
in University Corale, Band and Glee Club added 
a rich seasoning of character and dimension. 

The student exhibits, for the most part, 
were carefully planned and painstakingly ex- 
ecuted. They ranged from the rustic strength 
of a colonial doorway to the picturesque beauty 
of a desert oasis. 

The tradition of choosing a leading Horti- 
culturist was carried on with Mr. Harlan P. 
Kelsey, of East Boxford, Mass., capturing a 
richly deserved award. 

Years may pile heavy upon our brow but 
those moments of fellowship and suspense can 
never be erased. We of the graduating class 
sincerely hope that this, our show, will 
continue to grow bringing joy and happiness to 
countless thousands and perhaps, in time, it 
will become a New England Tradition.

Little 
International 




84 





Our Little International is patterned after 
the great International Livestock Show held 
annually in Chicago with one major difference 
— the students not the animals are being 
judged. The contestants are students majoring 
in Animal Husbandry — - Stockbridge Seniors 
and four year Juniors. The animals exhibited 
all belong to the University. For several weeks 
prior to the show, the animals are trained to 
lead and stand properly, washed, brushed and 
fitted by the student so that he will be able to 
show his animal off in the best possible manner. 




The judges are prominent livestock men — 
either breeders or professional men from neigh- 
boring colleges. This show is sponsored by the 
Animal Husbandry Club and has been the main 
event on its calendar for the past 17 years. It 
serves several functions: it provides the stu- 
dents with a chance to learn, first-hand, how to 
fit and show a pig, sheep, beef calf or horse; it 
provides the instructor a chance to observe the 
students in a medium entirely different from 
the class room ; and it provides people interested 
in livestock a chance to see a top show. 

Stockbridge again did itself proud by hav- 
ing the top place showman in David Sheldon 
from Mill River. Kenneth Pillsbury, a four year 
student from Walpole, was reserve premier and 
James Larkin of Sheffield received Honorable 
Mention. 






Winter 
Carnival 







Blazing fireworks, the sound of the trump- 
ets, the sharp notes of the music, high-lighted 
the beginning of an exciting weekend of fun 
and frolic at the Winter Carnival for 1 957. 

The enjoyment of a night of great memo- 
ries was that of the great Jazz concert at the 
dining commons, featuring the Brunotes from 
Brown University. 




"Symphony in Snow" was this years carni- 
val official name didn't prove too Symphonic 
due to lack of adequate snow. 

The Winter Carnival Ball was held in the 
Student Union, where more than 2,000 people 
danced under the finest of music presented by 
Buddy Morrow and his orchestra. Buddy is 
acclaimed the greatest trombonist of the pres- 
ent day. The gay crowd witnessed the official 
crowning of the queen. Miss Ann Thompson, 
attended by a court consisting of the other four 
finalists. 

The Stockbridge Sno-Ball was a big suc- 
cess as it has been in the past. Dancing was to 
the music of Ray Victory in the Commonwealth 
Ballroom of the Student Union. 

A weekend that will be remembered by 
all even if there was the lack of snow to make 
the "Symphony in Snow" complete. 



86 




Snowball Dance 



Frolicsome, vivacious and lighted hearted- 
ness are about the best adjectives that could 
explain the couples who attended the third 
annual Sno-Ball Dance. This year, with the com- 
plement of the Student Union, the dance was 
held in the Commonwealth Ballroom and was a 
greater success than any other year. 

The couples danced vivaciously around the 
ballroom under the capable direction of Ray 
Victory and his orchestra. 

Dean Jeffrey and his guest all seemed to 
have been held spellbound by the enthusiasm 
that was present at this years successful Sno- 
Bail. 






87 




Food Seminar 



Many hours were spent, a lot of hard labor, 
giving of your talents, and corporation were all 
working as one unit to produce the best seminar 
put on by the students, on campus. 

Men and women of the Food Industry in 
the New England area were the guest of the 
Food Managements Majors'. 

The seminar, which lasted for three days 
of the semester vacation, is planned by the 
Students from beginning to end. Taking care of 
complete housing and feeding elaborate meals 
at the dining commons. 

Highlights of the seminar was a cocktail 
party at President Mathers home. Followed by 
a banquet at the commons. 

The purpose of the seminar is for the 
people of the industry to further their knowl- 
edge in the food field. This is done by visiting 
lectures from the top men of the industry.

Football 



As September approaches for the year of 
1 957, a dimness of what is for the future, came 
to Coach Kosal^owski, only four seniors re- 
turned for the football season. As always, when 
you think of the worse, the best will always turn 
up. A good group of freshmen showed for the 
first practice. With the freshmen and veteran 
seniors. Coach molded the team into a rough 
tough Aggie team that could give any team a 
rough time. 

No matter how hard the team was fight- 
ing you were never fighting hard enough for 
the team. It was always, "fight harder". Giving 
them the treatment when they would make an 
unforgettable mistake. The coach has seen 
where the team has learned by their mistakes, 
thus the team improves as the year progresses. 
The hard work of each player has made a great 
team. In every group their is always one out- 
standing player. This year Jon Holmes has 
walked away with the coveted trophy. 

Although much time and sweat was put 
forth by the team, the tri-captains, John Fiorini, 
Donald Coombs, John Holmes, Coach Kosak- 
owski, the Aggies only won two of their five 
games.

Although Coach Woronicz lost most of 
his team at graduation, he produced a great 
team around his two remaining players. The 
boys had a bad start but soon settled down and 
produced a winning team. The big problem was 
getting organized as a team. The Blue-Devels 
soon overcame this obstacle with the help and 
experience of a few veterans. 

The boys worked hard and are to be con- 
gratulated; no measure can be put to the 
enthusiasm and the amount of effort displayed 
by each and every member of the team. 



Credit should be given to Coach "Hank" 
Woronicz for his patience and determination; 
he had a tough goal to reach but did a great job 
molding the boys into a team to defend the 
Aggies of the floor. 

With the end of a good season, a great 
honor and a job well done was awarded to Dan 
Kelleher as the outstanding player award pre- 
sented to him. This was the first time in the 
history of the school this award has been pre- 
sented.
