Guarded by the noble maples
Under heaven's arch of blue
our glorious Alma Mater
With the hill in distant view.
Memories of the past will cheer us
As we oft repeat thy name
Our beloved Alma Mater
We will ever sing thy fame.
Let the echoes sweep the glen,
Each voice rise' higher in our lay
And ne'er from thee our Alma Mater
Let our minds be turned away.
In recognition of the real friends and true relationships
we have encountered during the two years at M. A. T. I.
we are proud to add this ARCADIAN to those that precede
To the armed forces of the United States found
throughout the United Nations we present THE ARCADIAN
in hopes that in some future time this class of 1945 will
further compensate those brave men and women who
are giving, that we might in the future benefit by the
experiences gained in our course of study.
As the mill wheel turns at Ye Old Mill, the ways of
life are increased and preserved in our practical experi-
ences at M. A. T. I.
For the past 18 years, Miss Mary E. Woodward has given her services
not only as a teacher here at M. A. T. I. but she has been a true friend and
companion to us all.
Her assistance, encouragement and guidance has been the inspiration that
we have so often needed.
In recognition of these qualities and your loyal friendship, we, the class of
'45, dedicate this volume of the ARCADIAN to you.

Decisions must be made daily. Winning the war has been the most
important factor affecting our individual and group decisions sinfces Pearl
Harbor. We must continue this until the war is won and peace has been
established in the world.
We will all have to take stock of our position in life when peace comes.
We must examine it in terms of our aims and desires and possibly make many
new decisions. We all hope to get the greatest satisfactions and happiness
out of life and at the same time contribute our share toward a peaceful world.

Our CBoys in Service
Shortly after the completion of our first year at M. A. T. I. these boys
donned the uniforms of Uncle Sam and now Art Reimer is in the Merchant
Marines and Al Miller is in the Navy. Al was the freshman class vice-
president for the class of '45.
ALVIN MILLER ARTHUR REIMER
To Prof. Kilby, the class of '45 wishes to
express sincere thanks and appreciation for
making our class a success through his excel-
lent council and guidance.
September 19. I943 began our education at the
Morrisville Institute. Our small class of twenty-four
became acquainted with the other student class mates,
instructors, and the campus during the first week
when we as new students were initiated by the
seniors who proved very helpful and friendly after
they had taken off the hard shell of initiation.
After the first week of the excitement of initiation
we settled down to the more serious things and
elected Phyllis Allen as president: Alvin Miller, as
vice-president: Mildred Griswold as secretary: and
Marian Neadle as treasurer. We also chose Prof.
Kilby to give us a hand as class advisor.
Because of the man power shortage the freshman
girls donned their overalls and helped harvest the
potatoes and beans.
Several parties were carried on by the student
body. The freshman as a class helped to make them
a success by cooperating. The senior girls entertained
us as freshmen at the customary tea and we in turn
entertained the present freshman girls.
In November the freshmen had a slight increase
in their class when eight new fellows came to take
the short course in agriculture. They were with us
until the first of April.
In Ianuary the freshmen had a sleigh ride and
afterwards danced and had refreshments in Madison
This year on September 19 we began our senior
year by getting together and talking over old times
and initiating the freshmen who proved to be swell
sports. Our first activity was a hay ride. Then
later the seniors had a Halloween Party and a Sadie
Hawkins Day Dance, both being held in Madison
As class ofiicers we elected Betty Larkin as presi-
dent, Iohn Bell as vice-president. Mildred Griswold
as secretary and Roberta Andrews as treasurer.
Prof. Kilby is still our class advisor.
Our class is carrying on the usual M. A. T. I. spirit
with a basketball team and cheer leaders.
Despite the fact that this is war and there is a
paper shortage, we elected Doris Fuller as editor-in-
chief of the school paper. This has seen many edi-
tions and it is hoped there will be many more.
As the annual gift to the school the senior class
is carrying the Arcadian with Ruth Williams as the
editor-in-chief and Mr. Vantine elected to take our
During the year we have met several service men
and women who previously attended our school and
we have seeked their acquaintance.
This senior class deserves much credit for re-
organizing the previous organizations which died out
within the last few years.

Utica, New York Eaton, New York Garrotsville. New York
It is a dull rainy afternoon, in the autum of 1950.
I sit before the open fire listening to the patter of
rain drops upon the roof, my mind wonders and
slips slowly into subconsciousness. Memories of
M. A. T. I. pass through my mind and suddenly the
class of 1945 passes before me.
The girl we remember as slow but sure turned
out to be very loyal to her alma mater. For the
last two years Roberta Andrews has been teaching
freshman foods at Morrisville.
Racing over hill and dale you will still see Iohn
Bell with his butterfly net. His hobby has turned
into a business.
Phil Allen. the girl who was sure she would marry
at 22 certainly surprised everyone. Two years have
passed and she still hasn't roped her man yet.
No one would ever guess what Edgar Campbell
is doing now so I will have to tell you. He is
known throughout the country as the fastest and
and best auctioneer of the day.
Kay Byme's life turned out similar to her plans.
She is now the proprietor of an exclusive restaurant
in Syracuse. Curt Fretz is the cordial greeter dur-
ing the dinner hour.
Shortly after our graduation Prof. Harter retired
from his dairy lab. duties. Dave Carter seems to
have taken over the business for him. Dave is
different from the Prof. however, for he is the only
one who knows where the key to the ice cream
Our former Gladys Clemons is doing Hne in hold-
ing down the job on Charlton Hill. She is doing
her best to keep up with the lones's.
Byron Grimm has done pretty good for himself
in the novelty pin business. lf it weren't for the
censorship we might tell you a few of the old ones.
The blue-eyed bomb shell bomber of the class.
Doris Fuller, has settled down and has become a
model wife and mother. Doris and hubby live near
the Colgate airport.
If you happen to walk down the street in Albany
and smell the familiar essence of cigar smoke you
can be sure you are passing the swankiest jewelry
store in the city. Leon Gruskln is the proprietor.
Iune Spohr has passed the one step she dreamed
of after her lirst practice period and is now the
manager of the Nelson House CoEee Shoppe.
In the Morrisville Leader you might read the ad
for "A Cigar holder free if you will make a date
with me." T. V. Taggart has Finally resorted to this
to get a girl.
Marion Twiss, former Sargent Twiss, is now teach'
ing in a well known high school. Her mixed class
is studying the proper way to neck.
Marcelia Woodrui is now the favorite bathing suit
model for I. R. Power. She is busy writing to every
one else's boy friend.
As you pass by the biggest farm in Brookfield,
look for Don Larkin the proud owner and manager.
After graduation from M. A. T. I., Mildred Gris-
wold steered her course to bacteriology. Her mind
often wonders to Sherburne.
For a little diversion. we lind George Grogan
pacing the platform. calling out, "Step right up ladies
and gentlemen, the show is about to begin."
Chuckie Huestis has her name in neon lights out
in Hollywood where she has taken over Martha
Bob Hunsicker is the proud owner of the Burden
Betty Larkin is the gracious hostess at the Stage
Curt Keyes, well known bach of Morrisville, pays
frequent visits at Helyar.
Mrs. L. Wilson is the manager at the C. C. S. and
is bringing up a crew.
Rod Iennys is the new man about town. The girls
can whistle all they want.
Tum on your radio any night to a Mass. station
at 8:45 on the coast to coast hook-up and you will
hear the strains of "When My Blue Moon Turns
To Gold Again." You will be assured that Ruth
Williams is on the air with her 15 minute musical
The blurred vision disappears. I wake with a
start and llnd that I have been dreaming, yet I can't
help wonder if any of these dreams are true.
We, the class of '45 of M. A. T. I., do make and declare this our last will and testament.
To Dr. Galbreath and members of the faculty, our sincere thanks for all they have done
To Prof. Lapp, we leave the broken windows in Brooks Hall, not that we broke them.
We, Byron Grimm and Edgar Campbell, leave a large rock to "Zeke" Stevens to throw
through some one else's window and hope he gets better pay for it.
I, Dave Carter, leave my ability not to become angry quick to "Rusty" Wakeman.
The boys leave lim Gilday the evening paper in hopes that he'll read it if he gets time
in the Navy.
The girls in Helyar Hall, do will, Delight Gale and Dorothy Schriver, a mail bag.
I, "Click" Clemons, will all my Morrisville Romeos but one to Frances Smith.
I, Kay Byrne, leave all my skirts and sweaters to "Lindy" Stafford so that she won't
have to borrow.
I, Marian Needle, will my nickname "Pins" to Garnet Perrigo in case her "Garters"
To Norman Lovelace we will the song "I'll Be Seeing You" in hopes that to whom ever
he sings it, he will finally choose his girl.
I, Rosey Andrews, leave Lillian Bartell my winning smile.
I, George Grogan, do leave my gift of gab to Bill Seibert.
I, Marian Twiss, leave my secrets to Donald Turner, while Iohn Bell leaves the book
on "First Lessons In Love."
I, Phyllis Allen, will all but one of my men to Lois Vredenburg and the song "When
I Grow Too Old To Dream."
I, Mildred Griswold, leave my feminity to Shirley Frasier.
I, Ruth Williams, leave Edna Fellows my big Ben Alarm to wear on a chain around her
neck so she can get in on time, and my copy of "When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold" to
Chuck Podkowka in hopes that he will have learned to play it when I return.
I, Marcy Woodruff, leave my slow and easy going manner to Dorothy Thomas, and
my figure to Eileen Walf.
I, Bob Hunsicker, do will "Red" Tourot my place at student gatherings about town.
I, Doris Fuller, leave my red curtains to Larry Wilson and my understanding of people
to "Bernie" Dunn.
I, Betty Larkin, leave my quiet way to "Quackie" in hopes that the seniors next year
I, Rod Ienny, leave my fighting spirit to M. A. T. I.
I, Curtis Keyes, leave my great height to "Danny" Parker so that he might reach the top.

Freshmen Class History
September 18, 1944 saw the arrival of 63
bewildered and eager freshmen at the
The Hrst week was a dread to many, but
the seniors were not too hard on us. We
spent a day or so wearing 'parts of our
pajamas and placecards around our necks all
week. Of course as the tradition goes, we
had to carve out a paddle, we didn't know
what for, but found out at the end of the
week. We had the final assignment of
sounding off in assembly. A good time was
had by all during the week.
We settled down to a routine of classes
and became acquainted with one another and
To lead our class we chose Prof. Hough-
ton, and the following officers who were:
President, Edward Teleky: Vice-President,
Rala Schaub: Secretary, Shirley DeVoe, and
Treasurer, Iohn McGlynn.
Our activities were limited because of the
present world crisis. We were able to have a
hot dog roast in November, however, that
ended up in Helyar Hall due to the weather

The work of this department has been adapted
to wartime conditions. The department has become
better known in central New York State and has
assumed its rightful plan in the Held of agriculture
as a result of its activities.
The regular two year course has been carried on
as usual with an increased enrollment of regular
students. Several veterans of this war are already
taking advantage of the G. I. Bill of Rights by
attending the Institute.
For the second year, short intensive courses for
farm boys have been presented during the winter
months. The courses were arranged to cover as much
practical and technical work in a short period of
time as possible.
In cooperation with the New York State Emer-
gency Food Commission several groups of New-
foundland men and one group of Victory Corps Farm
Cadets were given a short period of training as
preparation for farm laborers. On the same program
a large group of Brooklyn College students re-
turned for the second year to pick peas and beans.
In addition to regular work such as teaching, judg-
ing, coaching and speaking, faculty members are
giving agricultural instruction in four nearby high
schools. Instructors are also teaching science and
shop work for the local high school.
The activities listed are but few of the many
services performed by the department. Each faculty
member has been doing a real jobi and in so doing
has made a real contribution in the field of Agricul-

Mircraft Instrument GDepartment
Under the War Training Program in co-
operation with the Rome Air Service Com-
mand, the Aircraft Instrument Department
successfully trained 206 civilian instrument
technicians for the Air Forces. This pro-
gram terminated September 28, 1944, at
which time a regular two year course of
study was inaugurated.
Equipment and instruments in this de-
partment have now reached the Sl00,000
mark and more is being added steadily.
Along with laboratory practice in over-
hauling aircraft instruments, the students are
instructed in aerodynamics and flight theory.
An interesting feature of this department
is that the students repair and overhaul
"live" work that goes right back into aircraft
for actual service.
One of the departments noteworthy
achievements is the fact that it received the

On November Second, the Farm

opened Monday and Thursday
evenings for night classes. These
classes were started so that the

Some traveled a considerable dis-

this opportunity. The work was
conducted in cooperation with the
Federal Bureau of Education under

New equipment and tools were
added and a part time instructor was
hired to assist in the work. Three

The founding of the Veterans Association
took place on October 12, 1944. All vets
present decided upon the election of officers,
with Iohn Bell holding office for the first
semester as president. His ever efficient
secretary was chosen to be Iohn McGlynn.
The number to attend this meeting was
quite small, but by the end of the month
all the vets at M. A. T. I. were taking an
active interest in the new association. Like
"Topsy" it just grew as more and more vets
began to return to take up their education
which Uncle Sam interrupted.
With an eye for the future the vets de-
cided a constitution should be drawn up. It
is still undergoing changes, etc., as they be-
lieve in perfection rather than convention.
Prof. McPherson ta doughboy of 19181
was elected advisor, besides handling this
the Veterans Association has appointed him
M. A.T. I.'s Chief Administrator to solve,
handle or iron out all problems that involve

deeply grateful for his time, effort and will-
ingness so thoughtfully given.
To Dr. Galbreath, faculty and students,
we the former soldiers, sailors and marines
of Uncle Sam wish to extend our sincere
thanks to you who have made this jump
from military to civilian life that much
easier and quicker.
Irving S. Sears of Hamilton and C. Green
Brainard of Waterville have devoted many
hours of their valuable time to the affairs
of the Morrisville Technical Institute. They
have each served over thirty years as mem-
bers of the Board of Visitors of the Institute.
The passing of Mr. Sears and of Mr.
Brainard in 1944 has caused a great loss to
the school and to their respective communi-
ties. The Arcadian pays tribute to their
service and faithfulness.

NEWFOUNDLAND FARM TRAINING PROGRAM
MAY 17-IULY 1
Shortly after the 1944 commencement was over M.A.T.l. began the first of
its special enterprises, that of training seventy-three boys from Newfoundland.
The purpose of the training was to adjust these boys to the American ways
After training the boys were placed on farms in the following counties:
Chenango, Onondaga, Oswego, Herkimer, Madison and Oneida. This was by
arrangements between the United States government and that of Newfoundland.
VICTORY CROP TRAINING PROGRAM
The training of city high school boys was carried on at the same time.
Boys were trained in a short length of time for employment on farms where
help was definitely needed.
BROOKLYN COLLEGE PROFECT
IUNE - SEPTEMBER
In Iune approldimately two hundred students and faculty from Brooklyn
College took over M.A.T.I. dormitories and meals were served in the cafeteria.
During the day they picked peas and beans and attended classes at night. In
this way the students were able to carry on their regular college courses, and
at the same time harvest many thousands of bushels of vital food crops.
AIRCRAFT INSTRUMENT REPAIR
Co-operating with the Rome Air Depot through arrangements with the
U. S. Army, the Institute trained twenty-two students for work at the Depot.
In addition to this group five boys completed the Radio Repair course in
September. At that time it was changed over to civilians and lengthened to

The Hinman Standard Milker
This New Model Hinman Milker has during the past few
years been selected by the outstanding breeders of this country
as they milker best suited to milk their herds.
The reason is because Hinman uses only 10 inches of vacuum.
This is soothing to the cow and causes her to milk fast and dry
and it actually protects the cow's teats and udder because of
its gentle application.
Such well known herds as Eranlo Farms, Hopkins, Minn.,
Dunloggin Farms, Ellicott City, Md., Ravenglen Farms, Antioch,
Illinois, Lawbrook lersey Farm, Gresham, Ore., and hundreds
of other nationally known dairies are finding that the Hinman
Low-Vacuum Milker gives them results that they have not been
able to get with other types of milkers.
What the l-linman is doing for others it will do for you.
LET US SERVE YOU!
