The days that are gone are en- chanted. Nothing holds as impor- tant a place in the memories of a college man as those days when he was a student at his Alma Mater. It is hoped that this book will serve to recall to its possessors the years they spent at Massachusetts, the former classmates, the campus life, nd all that th at life meant to them. The ties that bind us to our col- lege should be everlasting. THE EDITORS. 3 ap €. orrep WHEN in 1919 ive learned that our former student at the Massachusetts Agricultural College, Dr. Ray E. Torrey, graduate of the class of 1912, was to return to his Alma Mater to assume the duties of instructor in Botany, leaving his position in Wesleyan University, much interest was felt by those who remembered the tall lanky student of former years, whose thorough scholarly work as an undergraduate had impressed itself upon all. We recalled a shy, modest and unassuming student of brilliant ability, and we were interested to see the development which maturer years of study and experience in life must have yielded a receptive mind, full of latent possibilities. The return of the native revealed the old modest and unassuming manner, but the man in- stead of the boy. of mental alertness, of strong convictions, the man who had found himself. Years of study at Harvard, of travel at home and abroad, of experience in the class-room had placed the unobtrusive student upon the higher plane of recognition of individual duty and responsibility, and had given the unassuming character the force and energy of self-assertiveness. Acquainted with his record as an undergraduate, knowing the favor his graduate work had re- ceived from the most eminent specialists, and the successful teaching career already launched forth upon, we augured only successful and fruitful years of labor in work resumed at M. A. C. The realization of optimistic forecasting: the recognition of the intrinsic value of steady adherence to the highest ideals of teaching, as the leader of the student to broader fields of intellectual attain- ment, of insight into life and its various individual problems; the giving unstintedly of self to awake and promote better scholastic attainments; the recognition of the spirit of ambition for the student; the desire to cooperate, to lead, to point the way to broader mental perception — all these dominant forces of the best in pedagogy we promised would be felt and appreciated. Our augury was good. In dedicating the present year-book to Doctor Torrey the students pay him their highest tribute. Ray E. Torrey was born December 15, 1887 at North Leverett. His early education was re- ceived at the schools of Leverett, Montague, and Deerfield. In 1907 he was graduated from the Montague High School under Principal A. C. Monahan, a graduate of M. A. C. It was at the Montague High School that an interest in Natural History began to develop, also here was fostered a talent for drawing which later proved to be an economic asset. Leaving the High School, Mr. Torrey entered the First National Bank at Greenfield, supposing he was through with formal edu- cation. But he soon realized the monotonous routine work was in no wise sufficient to engage a mind eager for knowledge. He read widely and wanted to know more. At Principal Monahan ' s instigation he was led to enter M. A. C. in the fall of 1908, believing at first that he had an inclination for floriculture which he had practiced as an amateur. Lnder the stimulating influence of a few men in Science here he became interested in Biology and Geology, and particularly in the philosophy of Evolution, which led logically to studies In philosophy. Not being hampered by formal instruction in the latter, he was able to extend his reading outside the beaten track and dipped rather extensively in Eastern philosophy. Entirely on his own resources he lived on the raw edge of nothing for four years-then, as at all other phases of his career, daunted by no physical difficulties or hindrances. In his senior year he was Laboratory Assistant in Bot- any; he also received the Hill ' s Prize for the best herbarium collection. Immediately answering a call to assume the position of Head of the Department of Botany in Grove City College, Grove City, Pa., he taught there Botany, Zoology and Geology until 1915. The summer of 1914 was spent in Germany, Italy and England; but the European tour was rudely interrupted by the war, and he was caught in the general American exodus. In the fall of 1915, Mr. Torrey entered Harvard for graduate work, majoring under Professor E. C. Jeffrey in Vascular Morphology. Here he assisted in instructing Harvard classes. His talent for drawing was splendidly utilized in the many illustrations which he made for Professor Jeffrey ' s " Anatomy of Woody Plants. " He also collaborated with Professor Jeffrey in several articles dealing with Evolutionary Morphology. Upon receiving the Thayer Fellowship in Botany in 1917, he spent nine months in the Western and Southern States searching for fossil lignitic woods. He visited practically every region where such woods occur. In a thesis embodying the results of these researches, he was able to add one new genus and sixteen new species to science. His thesis was accepted for the doctorate in 1918, and also for publication by the Boston Society of Natural History. In 1918 he took the position in Wesleyan University as substitute for the professor who was then overseas, to teach classes in Biology and Vertebrate Zoology, preparing R. O. T. C. men for army medical work. In 1919 came the call to M. A. C. Owing to the native modesty of Doctor Torrey and his keen dislike of personal aggrandize- ment, we have no wish to eulogize here in any way; but it would be unfair to himself and to the class who are dedicating this year-book to him if we refrained from a few words of fair estimation held by faculty colleagues and the student body: a slight appreciation of esteem in which Doctor Torrey is held by teacher and individual. It would be impossible to conceive of a teacher of experience at Harvard doing work at M. A. C. without holding at M. A. C. the same high ideals which have won recognition at Harvard. Doctor Torrey is above all the scholar — one of preeminent attainment and rare capacity — and to his work in the class-room he brings the highest ideals, placing before the student the worthy goal to- wards which to strive. But his work as instructor does not end here. Having set the goal and given proper incitement towards attaining the same, he lends his whole force towards assisting the stu- dent forward, utilizing every opportunity to encourage and advance. Believing the college is an educational institution rather than a tradeschool, he has for each student scholastic ambition; permeated with the dominant scientific dogma of the survival of the fittest, he believes the college man should reach superior mental attainment. Of the highest ideals in this respect, of unswerving persistency, of mental dauntlessness, he finds it difficult to tolerate the college man of mere voca- tional ambition. A contributor to science of a now established international recognition, M. A. C. may well be proud to rank Doctor Torrey as an alumnus and an instructor, and the coming years alone may tell how long she may hold this worthy son. The man — the individual: a nature rich in appreciation of those things beyond the narrower limit of personal interest; a scientist and thinker, endowed with a most human personality — interest in life in its varied forms — helpfulness — altruism at the expense of self — bubbling over with the keenest sense of humor amounting almost to an obsession — appreciation of and keen insight into the arts, especially music, to which he reacts to an extraordinary degree — a feeling for the vital element in everything worth while; these are but a few of the main characteristics of our colleague and instructor, whose work and attainment we respect, whose individuality we esteem and appreciate.

On his arrival in Amherst he found a few mi- croscopes, a skeleton, and no organized de- partment of Zoology. After 24 years he re- tired, as honorary director of the Graduate School organized and made successful by his initiative, leaving a department of entomology inferior to none in the country and having a fully equipped laboratory which since his death has been named Fernald Hall in his honor. The Carnegie Foundation, contrary to its policy of granting no pen- sions to professors of State institutions, made an exception in his case because of his exceptional merit as an individual and his great service rendered as a pioneer scientist. He was born March 16, 1838, on Mt. Desert Island, off the coast of Maine. All the education he could get before he was 16 years old was obtained by at- tending the country school two months in winter and six weeks in summer, meanwhile working on his father ' s farm. Ambitious to become a sea captain, he studied navigation and followed the sea, as a sailor before the mast, cook, steward, second mate, first mate and sailing master, so that at twenty-one he was fitted to command a vessel. His love of learning, however, proved stronger than his passion for the sea, and he entered the Maine Wesleyan Seminary and prepared for Bowdoin College. The civil war found him enlisted as a seaman in the navy. Promotion made him an ensign, and later he was detailed to serve in the coast survey near Savannah. During these months he never relinquished his determination to get an education and continued his studies while serving in the navy, so that in 1865, when discharged, he won from Bowdoin College the degree of A.M. His ability as a teacher was proved by his success as principal of the academy at Litchfield, Maine, and by his five years at the head of floulton Academy. Always learning, he studied with Louis Agassiz on Penikese Island and in the museums in Cambridge. Called to the chair of Natural History in the Maine State College at Orono, Maine, he served with distinction for fifteen years until President H. H. Goodell persuaded him to accept a professorship at M. A. C. As a teacher Professor Fernald was unsurpassed. His inspiring influence over his pupils enabled him in his class room and laboratory to quicken the mind of the dullest as well as the best students. He attracted their attention, aroused their curiosity, awakened desire, showed them how to get what was wanted, made them say " I must have it! " Master of himself and the perfect embodiment of patience, he imparted to his scholars the power of protracted interest and of continued thought which made them deHght in difficulties and persevere years, if need be, in order to comprehend the Hfe history of an insect and to discover the remedy for a destructive pest. His success as a teacher soon attracted pupils from Amherst College, from Harvard, from Cornell and other institutions, and from other countries, who begged that they might enter his classes. These continued applications made it necessary for him to offer courses to graduates that should enable them to ob- tain the degree of M.Sc. and Ph.D. This started the M. A. C. graduate school. His pupils went to South Africa and to other British possessions, to Alabama and other distant states, and always persisted in the way he marked out for them. Prof. Fernald possessed the unique qualities that made him successful in research work. His method involved exact and comprehensive observations, precise definitions, fixed terminology, classified arrangement and rational ex- planation. Having prepared his material for thought, he could hold it up clearly before his mind ' s eye and by his constructive imagination ponder over these objects of thought until he discerned their relation, discovered the conditions, the final cause and the efficient remedy. Then sooner or later the rays of truth burst forth, like the rays of a polariscope, splitting the darkness and reducing chaos to cosmos. The joy of such a revelation he could never forget, and when it burst forth out of his own mind into the minds of his attentive pupils ' , thej ' were transformed from commonplace boys into students and scientists energized by the passion for knowledge. Prof. Fernald ' s long experience as a Maine farmer, a sea-faring man, a teacher and a business man gave him a wonderful knowledge of human nature. He could lead not only a bunch of academy boys and girls, a lot of college stu- dents, a gang of sailors on deck or on shore, but he could also have his way with college presidents and members of the faculty, with farmers from the back districts and with governors, senators, legislators and congressmen, statesmen, or politicians. He seldom failed to get what he needed for the benefit of science. His hard common sense impressed men with the fact that he was no impractical theorist and that whatever he demanded he would surely get sooner or later. So they concluded that it was best to yield to his wishes at once. Charles H. Fernald was a leader of men. As teacher, scientist, original re- search worker, administrator, acting president of the college, constructor of in- stitutions which shall em- body and disseminate his ideas and influence, he has left his mark upon the Massa- chusetts Agricultural College, which will never be obliterated as long as the institution shall remain a training school for men and women, fitting them for the service of the Com- monwealth, the nation, and the world.

The students may have the best athletic teams in the country, they may surpass the students of all other institutions in- tellectually, they may excel in any particular college activity, yet all that matters not to the world outside. The only reason for the existence of any college is that it may produce men who will be of distinct use to their fellowmen. If the alumni are useful to other men to a marked degree, if they produce something of distinct value, the college performs its part in our scheme of life. If the alumni are not useful and productive, or if they are so only to a low degree, the college has no excuse for its existence. M. A. C. men in all corners of the globe, and in varied professions, are producing results of which we are justly proud. There are now living between 1500 and 2000 alumni of M. A. C. The class of 1871, the first class, has thirteen members living, mainly in business or retired. The class of 1891, twenty years later, has fourteen members living, of whom six are engaged in professions taught at M. A. C. The class of 1911 has thirty-six living members. Of these, twenty-two are engaged in professions taught at the college, and twenty of these twenty-two are in agricultural work itself, the other two being chemists. Of the class of 1916, thirty-nine are in agricultural work, and eleven others are teaching in high schools, probably agricultural subjects. Twenty- nine of the men of this class are in business, many of them presumably in business- es connected with agriculture. The percentage of men engaged in agricultural and allied professions is steadily increasing. Among the alumni are many whose work is well known throughout the coun- try. Space does not permit the detailed enumeration, but a few may well be mentioned. From the class of 1871 came W. H. Bowker, now deceased, who organized a large fertilizer company. The college auditorium bears his name. Dr. H. E. Stockbridge, editor of the " Southern Ruralist " was of the class of 1878, and Dr. J. L. Hills, director of the Vermont Agricultural Experiment Station, was of the class of 1881. In 1882 graduated Dr. W. E. Stone, late president of Purdue University. Dr. Stone recently lost his life while mountain climbing in Western Canada. Mr. Daniel Willard of the class of 1882 is president of the Baltimore Ohio R. R. Mr. Willard was forced to leave college before graduation because of eye trouble. The class of 1882 also contains Mr. Herbert Myrick, president of 35 the Orange Judd Publishing Co., and Professor Charles S. Plumb of Ohio State University. Dr. Joel E. Goldthwait of Boston, a noted surgeon in the recent war, is an ' 85 man. Coming down to a more recent date Dr. A. AV. Gilbert, our State Commissioner of x griculture, is of the class of 1904. Many others could easily be mentioned. M. A. C. men occupy many positions with the Federal Department of Agriculture, as directors of Experiment Stations, Extension Ser- vice men, professors in agricultural colleges, farmers, business men, physicians, etc. Our alumni maintain a keen interest in all college affairs, and are ever ready to assist Alma Mater in every possible way. The Memorial Building is the most recent and direct contribution of the alumni to the college. Former athletes are frequently seen on the field assisting the coaches. A central alumni secretary who is in charge of the college field work has an office on the campus. AVherever an M. A. C. man goes he carries with him memories of his college. Alumni clubs are scattered over the U. S. and in Hawaii, Porto Rico, and Cuba. All M. A. C. alumni clubs meet annually on World Aggie Night. It is sometimes thought that the M. A. C. student body is too small, and that the scholastic requirements are too strict. Such an idea is a misconception of the purpose of the college. We must produce superior men. It is far better for us and for the people whom we will serve in the future that we produce one superior man rather than ten mediocre men. We have given to the world many good men in the past; we must continue to do so in the future. Let it be known that an M. A. C. man is one who understands his work and does it well. We are proud of our alumni, and we who are students must continue in their paths, and make the name of " Massachusetts " a standard of excellence. 36 il. . C.

C. for the first time, the Freshman is completely be- wildered by the rapid succession of events which takes place the first week of his college career. He learns to fear the Soph, admire the Junior, and respect the Senior. This first week is a form of general initiation before he can become a member of that great fraternity known as the student body. In this week, his class becomes organized, officers are elected, and he is given certain rules to obey by the College Senate. His skull cap distinguishes him as a member of a class which will supply the " leaders " of the college in a few years. Thus, his actions are constantly criticized by the upperclassmen, and by his " guardians, " the Sophomores. He acquires a sophisticated veneer, and college life opens up to him in all its joys and beauties. He is " rushed " by the fraternities, and soon he becomes a pledged member of one of these organizations. He begins to feel that he has a home on the campus, of which he, as a member, is a part and parcel. Aggie really becomes his Alma Mater. If he is interested in the student activities, he is given plenty of chance to " make " the various publications, the musical clubs, etc. If he is athletically inclined, he may go out for his class basketball or hockey teams. When he comes back to the campus to start the last lap of his Freshman year, he doffs his distinctive headgear and blends in with the remainder of the student body. He is now eligible for Varsity sports. Most of the Senate rules no longer apply. He also experiences his first spring view of the campus and its environs. The week-end hikes create in him an increasing admiration for the surroundings of " Old Aggie, " so that it is with a feeling of regret that he leaves in June for twelve weeks the campus which he has learned to love and know so well. In the fall, he comes back to Ag gie a full-fledged Sophomore, with the airs of a lord, and the haughtiness of a duke. He seems to have forgotten his Fresh- man days, for he starts " bossing " the Freshmen unmercifully. After the first week of classes, however, he discovers that " Billy " is a harder taskmaster than his erstwhile " policemen. " The " Big Trio " cause him to burn " the midnight oil, " especially if he is out for Varsity football. The word " fun " vanishes almost entirely from his vocabulary, although he derives some enjoyment by sending the luckless Frosh hurtling through the air and down into the clean (. ' ' ) waters of the campus pond. In the winter term, the pond being solidified, he takes fiendish delight in treating a few of the yearlings to the far- famed Arena parties. He is glad, however, when the snow leaves the ground and the ice disappears from the surface of the pond, as it means that Physics, the bugbear of all Sophs, leaves the realm of required courses, and that the Freshmen may once more be made to leap a la Kellerman into the abysmal 41 depths of the pond. Soon the banquet scrap takes place; the fight goes to the strong and the race to the swift. Six weeks later the classes leave the campus with mutual respect and regard for each other. " An upperclassman at last! " It is with a feeling of pride that the erstwhile Sophomore says this to himself as he comes back to the campus at the end of his second summer vacation. He participates no longer in the contests of the opening week of college, but assumes the position of a spectator who is at once amused and bored by such childish exhibitions. Now that he has selected his major, his interest in his studies increases greatly. He becomes a sort of " big brother " to the newly-arrived Freshmen, and thus makes them feel more at home. He views the Freshman from a different angle from that of his Sophomore year, and instead of assuming the one-time bellicose attitude, he becomes a bit more critical, and is wont to judge the yearlings with a deeper insight into their char- acter. He soon begins to plan for the Junior Prom, and this affair is the climax of social activities of the year. At commencement he indulges in a last frolic before the summer. As a permanent memorial to his class he helps plant a tree on some part of the campus. Long before the summer vacation is over, the Senior looks forward to his last year of college, and determines that it shall be the biggest and best, and that this year shall make up for all that he has previously missed in college life. Then any time from two months to two weeks before the opening of College, he begins the raising of that uncertain crop on the upper lip, and when the day for the results of his moustache husbandry arrives, he blossoms forth onto the campus with an invisible fuzz or a heavy bush, as the case may be, on his upper lip. However, whether it be fuzz or bush, he becomes a victim of ridicule by Juniors, Sophomores, and even his own classmates. Still, the mere presence of any sem- blance of a moustache lends to the Senior his first feeling of dignity, which grows more and more upon him as the weeks go by. Soon the Freshmen begin to salute him, and this gives him an increased feeling of importance, even though many yearlings look at him doubtfully and pass without saluting. This custom becomes a bore very soon, however, as the Freshmen travel in small armies about the campus; and it is a great relief to his right arm, and no great loss to his dignity, when the season of saluting has passed. Thus, you see, our Senior is a very dignified fellow. Studies do not worry him, as three long years of grinding away at text-books have worn away the " bone. " Toward the end of the year, the Senior finds himself more and more anxious to get out into the world, but in spite of this, time flies fast, and before he knows it, he is surrounded by his family and his friends at his Commencement. The speeches are soon o ' er, the degrees conferred, and our Senior is no longer a Senior, but a " College Graduate.

Lewandowski Julius Kroeck, Jr. enior €la ftisitorp It is a time-honored custom, as a search through volumes of this sort indi- cates, to catalogue in this space the campus achievements of the class about to be graduated. Suffice it for us to point, with considerable pride at places, to the accomplishments of 1922, to be found in this and three preceding " Indices. " We hope-no, rather we believe-that we have carried on in this manner what old Aggie wishes her sons to carry on, leaving the castle of her past unharmed, and building, in a humble way, our little gable of loyalty and devotion. Four years ago we were wondering which college we should attend. Three factors came to bear on most of us; a lack of sufficient funds to endure the finan- cial strain imposed by the great universities of the East, a love of the outdoors, inborn in the New Englander who has wrested his livelihood from resisting ele- ments for many decades, and a desire to be somewhere where democracy, that evasive thing which all Americans call their own, was the ruling element. So we chose M. A. C. Here the dollar sign was not the seal of the college. Here was our " outdoors " at its best, right in the heart of one of the most interest- ing valleys of the whole world, enclosed in a frame of mountains whose beauties were ever-changing, ever more beautiful. Here, too, was a democracy, the repu- tation of which had spread far abroad. And after four years, we have every reason to rejoice that we have chosen so well. When first we came to " Old South College, " and left our names with the scowling but kindly Registrar, War still raged across the ocean. We were thrilled to hear the tales of Aggie men who were giving their lives to further a more uni- versal democracy, whose rudiments they had learned where we were now living. Lighted by that bloody glare in the East, we saw for the first time how high must be our ambitions if we wished to make ourselves worthy companions to our prede- cessors. Then War ceased, and Peace came. And we saw the Alumni of Aggie, the oldest only fifty years out of college, join hands and together raise a Memorial as 45 beautiful as that of any institution, to commemorate a sad, but noble and inspir- ing sacrifice. Each and all of us were now imbued with a feeling which had never gripped us before, a feeling that we, too, must never stain a ' scutcheon so glorious. By now we were no longer glad only to claim Aggie as our own, we were glad that Aggie had adopted us as her sons. It has been thus in everything. In her athletics, in her non-athletic activi- ties, in her scholastic requirements, curriculum and faculty, in all things, we have continually seen this small college hold up her head proudly and honorably before all men. Soon we are going away, away from the little graj ' chapel with its books and bell, away from Alumni Field and its battles, and away from the " certain valley " now so dear to our hearts. May we have learned our lesson well! May we remember that we are to be part of that foundation on which M. A. C. rests! May we vow that forever, " Her loyal sons we ' ll be!

Hardy f uniot Clagg J i torp ONE, two, three — we cannot say four — but sometimes we wish there were more years at Aggie. After two successful years we acquire the title, " Stately Juniors, " for our activities have not been designed to add to the glory of the class alone, but to our Alma Mater. Altho we are the smallest class in numbers, being able to muster only one hundred, we do not contribute the fewest athletes to varsity sports, nor do we accept a minority membership in the field of non-athletics. The class made its debut in dramatics with the entirely new original pro- duction of the freshman play, " Blood Tells, " in which for the first time in late years in Aggie history, co-eds appeared on the stage. The Roister Doisters took the cue, and the co-eds have added much to the success of every production since then. Several men were taken into the Glee Club their fresliman year, and the number of songsters has steadily increased until this year fifteen of the thirty-six members hail from the Junior class. As in non-athletics, even more so in athletics we as freshmen made an early start. With the exception of one contest, the yearling football team had a clean slate for the season. Basketball and baseball followed closely along the same line. It is significant that the class did not lose a single numeral contest to the sopho- mores. This in itself did much to weld the class together in a common spirit and plant the seeds of a broader college spirit. During the sophomore year interest shifted entirely to the varsity activities. In all branches of athletics and non-athletics the class held its own. In the contests with the freshmen we were not so fortunate as during our own freshman year. Such seems to be the fate of all sophomore classes. 57 In this our junior year we have not slackened. In the line-up against Tufts on the gridiron six of the team were from ' 23. The hockey and basketball squads show a good percentage of ' ' iS men in their ranks. The number of men who have fallen by the wayside because of scholastic standing has been re- markably low during our freshman and sophomore years. The class believes the old but nevertheless true saying that he gets most out of college life who puts most into it, yet it is not an altogether selfish motive that has prompted the class of 1923 to take such an active part in college affairs. It is the desire to " Boost Old Aggie, " and we truly feel that the sky is the limit, nothing less. It is the desire to be loyal sons of our beloved Alma Mater whom we hold most dear. 58 tKregcott Supper Sftcle " ABE " " While words of learned length and thundering xoynd Amazed the gazing rustics ranged round.

" Abe " is in his element when deliveiing his opinion to an attentive audience. He choses his words with much care and little haste, and the very gods on Olympus cease their armorous quarrels in order to hear young Stentor get the argument across.

" Alex " is said to have the most perfect form of any boy at Aggie. It matters not whether he is partici- pating in athletics or shining as a social light, he is always conspicuous for his perfect form. Many a fair one has been thrilled by watching him on the court, pivoted, ready to toss in a basket, or on the diamond with his arm drawn back ready to throw a man out at second. Be that as it is, Alex is always popular wherever he goes on account of his happy ways, his syncopated expressions, and his witticisms. i¥la£ion MliUiam£( Qtt " MASK " " Hot Dog " West Bridgewater, Mass.

This youth is sure to make a success of life, for he possesses that much-coveted faculty of winning his way to the heart of the fair one per se. Mase ' s supreme achievement thus far is the successful passing of Fresh- man English, even though h-o-r-s-e was never pro- nounced " hoss " and never will be. He is a hard worker for what he gets, be it in the classroom or in a fray. (Ask the five men it took to get him in the banquet scrap.) Co-education at Aggie and Mason are supple- mentary to each other, for no real party at the Abbey is complete without him. 59 ILutfjcr Pailep rrington ' ARRY ' ' ■ icorsl comes to tvorst, let it be roses.

Though slightly under normal stature, this auburn- haired lad from Florence is up to the mark and a little over in brains. His favorite hymn is " Napoleon, " " and one can hear him warbling, " And I take after ' Nap, ' melodiously and often. When not absorbing knowledge from our learned profs, " ' Arrie " manufactures news for the Collegian or swells the volume of sound frequently heard emanating from Glee Club headquarters.

It seems as though he had inherited a goodly portion of the Webster wis- dom, judging by the faculty he has for getting out of finals. He comes to us via Dean Academy, a place from which everyone normally enters Tufts, but for- tunately for us, however, he did not drop his bag at Medford, but hiked right on to Amherst. One thing we are sure of, wherever Bake goes he will sure have a host of friends. Marrcn ILeilit JSartlett " LES " " .s7(« ne ' er beware of mine own wit till I breali my shins against it.

Believing as we do that charity becometh a man bet- ter than good looks or a strong pipe, we pass over the infirmities and weaknesses of this cynical child-jester and will attempt to dig out the few gleaming points of excellence in his character, points that sparkle like diamonds in a bed of asphalt. .

This Mellen ' s Food baby came from Arlington to add to the list of athletes from that town; but as the co-eds had no organized games, Batie found no outlet for her abilities along this line. However, she has shown other abilities which range anywhere from acting to conduct- ing the class in " Phyzzie Ed. " Batie is always on the spot if anything is said about " bumming it " to a game. She is planning to hike to Boston some vacation and she will certainly get there. Baties future is rather doubtful. She may settle down on a farm, but we doubt it.

Howard has done little to earn his savage title, for he is not at all bloodthirsty, unless it be in a banquet scrap or on the football field. He boasts proudly of the ancient history of his home town and of the sur- rounding country. If you want to know how Miles Standish felt when John Alden put one over on him, Howard has all the inside " dope " on it, and on any other kindred matter.

What ' s the use of worrying — it never was worth while! This might well be the motto of R. B., tor the blues are apparently unknown to his young life. He does not believe in wasting time, even in the mere matter of studying, in which pastime he often indulges before final week. Bob has tried various means of exercise to reduce weight, always followed by a shortage of food at " Ye Famous Hashhouse. " But although he believes heartily in the value of his 10 o ' clock beauty sleep, when it comes to a midnight excursion around Prexy ' s Hill, Bob is right there, bag and baggage. 61 3nmt Ucn JScal •JIMMIF ' Abington Abington High School 1898; Entomolog,y; Class Football (1); Class Bas- ketball (1); Class Treasurer (1); Interclass Athletic- Council (1); Class President (2, S); Class Rifle Team (2): Class Vice-President (2); Varsity Football (2, 3); Varsity Basketball (2, 3); Interfraternity Conference (2, 3); Informal Committee (3); Senate (3); Kappa Sigma. Jimmie ' s quiet but forceful personality was first felt when Abington sent its S. A. T. C. quota to Aggie. Just glance at our " White Hope, " and you will agree with Prexy, that the " rural community is surely the seed bed of the nation. " Being more or less of an in- vestigator, he un.successfully attempted to prove spon- taneous combustion a fake, and was amply rewarded with a collection of scorched sleeping apparel. Jim sure likes to swim and " wrastle, " but most of his atten- tion is devoted to football and basketball. His stern eye at a Senate meeting points out the straight and narrow path to many an unruly frosh. HIamesi tanlep JBtnnttt " BENNIE " " Who art thou, so fast adrifty " South Meriden, Conn.

As a true " jazz hound, " this youth is of the advanced school. He is a regular second baseman on the Glee Club, where his batting average is of the highest. He is noted for mak- ing at least one hit after every concert. His winning ways and eagerness to be in the thick of things, whether it be a banquet scrap or a Soph-Senior Hop, have won him a host of friends both on and off the campus.

We would have thought Inza would have been more dignified than to bob her hair, " things being as they be. " She came up to Aggie to get a good general edu- cation and hoped to avoid the agricultural courses. However, she is now majoring in Floriculture and seems to like it. At times, she wishes she was going back to work in the Chem. lab., but the present Chem. building has destroyed most of her desires in that direction. Inza has appeared quite often on the . ggie stage. Over games, dances, and (?)

Altho running into a snag or two in Billj ' s Physics and Abe ' s Agronomy, Mel is still with us. A certain feminine magnet irresistably draws him back to Worcester each and every week-end.

Brewer hails from Upton, and bravely upholds the honor of his home town against numerous attacks. Although he claims it to be a thriving metropolis, it has been insinuated by some that the inhabitants come down to civilization in buckboards. Modern slang can not be in use there, for Brewer has only one exclama- tion, " Great Scott, " which serves his every need. In Upton he follows farming as an occupation, being owner, we are told, of fine Holstein cattle. We expect that in the future he will leave Upton for Kansas, and become a thriving stockman there.

Science teaches us that the piano is an exaggerated form of harp, but we must not conclude from this that " Brody " resembles a piano in anything except the ability to pro ide music. The denizens of North Col- lege are often kept awake till the wee sma ' hours by the eerie sounds produced by him and his companion in crime — Faneuf. We believe that McCormack heaved a sigh of relief when informed that our hero ' s vocation was to be agriculture instead of opera. He expects however, to conduct experiments in the effect of music upon the milk flow and will install a phonograph in each of his henhouses. jFrancig (Ebtoarb JSucblcj ' " BUCK " Xatick Natick High School 1900; Landscape Gardening; Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Manager Varsity Baseball (3); Land- scape Art Club ; Kappa Sigma.

His art as a " land-scraper " serves only to impregnate his popularity as a smooth-looking boy, and incidentally won him a place on the Hop Committee. After hiber- nating in our quiet town for one winter, Buck modestly developed managerial aspirations, and now sits on a commanding pinnacle as varsity baseball manager.

In spite of his illustrious namesake, this young man is not a gifted orator, as " Bull " Prince sadly convinced him. He has literary abilities, however, and has written several poems, but none of his works have escaped from North College. Tho a poet, Burke is a man to whom wine, women, and song do not appeal. Youthful frivolities call forth from him cynical com- ments, much as the idle gambols of youth amuse an aged father. Like all cynics, Burke is inclined to be distrustful of mankind, but to those who have won his confidence, he is a firm and fast friend. 64 aul Cofjcn " SOL " " Gang-ioay " Dorchester English High, Boston 1902; Chemistry; Collegian (2, 3); Varsity Football (3).

His wide acquaintanceship combined with his uncanny ability to store away facts and to keep them fresh, has brought him the distinction of being the " Class-Book-of-Sta- tistics.

As a boy he spent his summers on his father ' s farm in MarshBeld which includes a part of the Daniel Webster estate. Here " Dinny " was wont to play around the great statesman ' s gravestone, and it is said that the dry Yankee humor, for which the great statesman is famous, oozed from his bones and entered our hero. " Dinny " is quiet and self-effacing and only those who know him intimately have the opportunity of enjoying his witty comments.

We pause with pen in air before depicting the true characteristics of this classmate, for we know he ' ll not become peeved, whatever be said. An " An Hus " man, one would naturally presume Paul to be a Mexi- can athlete as well. Far from it. He exceeds the well known mouse in his ability to keep still.

It has always been our policy to do our best to ruin a man ' s character in so far as we are able; but as we pen these lines on the type-writer we are nearing the end of the book and the close of a perfect day. Therefore we feel charitably disposed. Let us pass over the harrow- ing details of Dicks past and consider on the fact that the boy is now striving nobly to redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow students. He has forsaken the women, at least temporarily, and given up that agrarian pursuit known as " raising cane.

In " Phil " we have the only representative in " 23 from that far-famed spot known as " the Cape. " How- ever. " Phil " is a true representative of " the Cape " in that he upholds all of its traditions even to the famous " berry. " When " Phil " finishes college, he hopes that his study of entomology will enable him to return to the cape and chase the bugs from the bogs. However, he does not confine himself to the limits of Amherst during all of his spare hours, for he is a favorite at Smith and Mount Holyoke, as his election as class master of the " terpsichorean art " signifies.

Early in the fall of ' 16 a quiet little lad from Win- chester entered Aggie among the pea-green ranks of 1920. This no-less personage was Reuel Eldredge, whom we now reverently acknowledge as our class parson. Finding college rather uninteresting, he retired to man- age the Tei. and Tel., but was later called back to the ranks of 1923, as religious adviser. " Stick " has ac- cepted his calling most faithfully, and his well-worn p:illi over the ri er has had a pronounced affect on the young T set.

Music comes as naturally to him as gum to a sten- ographer, and he is as much at home behind the bat as in the ancestral domicile at West Warren. Very early in life he awoke the echoes of the surrounding hills with the contrasting notes of two tin whistles blown at the same time. His ambition in life is to own a saxophone, altho we understand that his days are spent in the pursuit of the elusive atoms that find their place away in the dark nooks and crannies of the an- cient " chem lab.

He possesses considerable oratorical prowess, especially in an ability to render a remarkable imita- tion of our famous Colonel Walker. On the whole, however, he does not force himself much upon the pub- lic, except, perhaps, when he is disturbed while study- ing. He then ousts in rapid succession the intruders.

We predict a bright future in the business world for Skinny. He has shown considerable ability in several managerial positions; and the financial success of this Index is traceable directly to his managership, which he developed by trying to control a flivver. He has been known to take recreation at both Smith and Mt. Holyoke, and our informal funds have frequently been swelled by his support.

Roger was well named, as to the number of his friends. He is not always as serious as the accom- panying picture might indicate; once you hear that contagious chuckle you might as well make up your mind to laugh, too. He has a never-failing store of in- teresting anecdotes for every occasion, and " Did you ever hear this one? " is sure to be followed by a good story. We often wonder how such a man could be unsusceptible to the fair sex in Amherst and vicinity, but now we know that the answer may be found some- where back in the old home town.

Bob selected Aggie for his Alma Mater chiefly be- cause he had to pick cranberries by hand back at the Woburn homestead. He hopes to cross cranberries with sugar beets and harvest the sauce crop with a canning machine before many years pass by. However, cranberries make a sour subject, so Bob turns to sweet- ness for a counteracting influence. Sweet notes from both his clarinet and from his " one-and-only " serve to enlighten the existence of his comrades and himself. On occasion he trips the light fantastic at an informal. He has intentions of becoming a florist some day, but will have to quit giving away bouquets to make the business pay.

It is be- yond our imagination to picture " Bennie " in any great- er roughneck brawl than " Hide-and-go-seek " or " Who ' s got the button?

Bert has never bee n quite the same since he passed Billy ' s Physics — the surprise was too great! If you try to get the better of him in wit and humor, look out!

Farming is a great life, if you just want to exist, but Mary is more ambitious. She is trying to decide which will pay best on her land — poultry, pom., or general ag.

Between frequent visits to New .lersey, Clifton may be seen waiting for " Creeper. " As a result of his courses in Pomology, he is a good judge of " peaches, " which accounts for his three letters a day and a special delivery on Sunday, with an occasional package thrown in for good measure. In direct contrast to his tender tendencies. Cliff plays a mean position at half-back on the eleven, especially a fter the receipt of the much- looked-for epistle. Clifton is a retiring soul and craves seclusion. 69 " PHIL " " So young a bod) with so old a head. " Roxbury Salem High School 1901; Pomology; Glee Club (3); Index; Delta Phi Alpha. Phil ' s first choice was Harvard. Believing that only fools never change their minds, he bumped over a hun- dred miles of B. M. roadbed to reach M. A. C, and enrolled in 1923. He keeps fairly quiet on our campus, whether from desire to shield an unsavory past or merely because it is natural, we do not know.

A living example of the fact that fame does not al- ways introduce itself with a blare of trumpets. This scion of the apple orchards of Ipswich was as quiet a Frosh as ever attached himself to old Aggie, but when Hockey and Baseball seasons came, it quickly became evident that Doc had something to show the campus besides a friendly smile. Brought up in the town where most of our insect pests were introduced, and in an at- mosphere replete with drumlins and other strange geological formations. Doc had quite an environmental education in his youth, and bids fair to win high scho- lastic honors at Aggie. (©eorgc (grabesi " Wisdom in better than rubies.

From behind his tortoise shell glasses, George could assure timorous maiden ladies or hard- headed business magnates that the evergreens (White pines from Norway, Maine, 25c each) which he planted on their estates were rare specimens of Pinus strobus imported from Scandinavia, bargains at $98. each.

" Johnnie " hails from a little uncharted community in Connecticut called Glastonbury, which boasts of shaving soap and Hale peaches. We have a faint suspicion that the fact of the close proximity of Smith and Mt. Hol- yoke was the bait that landed " Johnnie " at Aggie. Whatever the inducement, we are glad that he is here. He has made a name for himself as a basketball artist, winning his letter as a sophomore. " Johnnie " has transferred some of his affections from Mt.

He has tried various activities on our campus, and literary leanings have conquered to the extent that he puts most of his endeavors into the Aggie Index.

Sublimely indiff ' erent to the ways of the world, and not caring a " continental " about the " great unwashed, " Fred wends his way unconcernedly through this vale of tears. He follows his own ideas in an absolutely orig- ■• inal manner, and his training stunt before the banquet ' scrap made him famous.

He generally rises too " late for breakfast and retires too late for honest men. When so inclined, he studies; otherwise, he gives the prof an extemporaneous " line, " fluency being one of his strong points.

He was ex- cused from the R. O. T. C. because, even though placed in the rear rank, the officers kept falling over his feet. He is a hard, conscientious worker, with the proverbial Yankee eye for the main chance. Aside from Amherst and Ipswich his main habitat is Framingham. " There ' s a reason.

The class of " 23 collected several co-eds from the town of Amherst and Rose was one of them. Rose soon became known among us for her ability in jazzing at the piano. She wanted to major in Home Economics, but as there is no such major, she has had to content herself with taking all the cooking and sewing courses she can and filling in with . ggie Ed. In a few years we may find Rose teaching the culinary science for the Home Economics Department.

Molly is happy when planning an all-night trip in a bumpity auto truck to a neighboring state college to see our team come off victorious.

He has a remarkable con- .slitution, for he survived a 500-mile trip to Burlington in Putnam ' s " Rolls Rough.

After this Physical calamity he changed his major and now hopes to become a gardener of the rare or Landscape variety, specializing in the extermination of the festive mosquito in his home city of New Haven.

One would think that a native of a place of such re- pute as " Macs " home state would cheer up and smile while basking in the rare and inspiring air of our valley. Not so. " Mac " sticks to his native Scotch pessimism, and just to run true to form, he remains perverse and obstinate to the last ditch. A friend of his owed " Mac " ten dollars, and meeting him one day held out a bill marked X with the words " Take this. " " Mac " is so dawg-gone used to refusing to do things that he told his friend to go chase himself. By the time the other side of " Mac ' s " Scotch nature had asserted itself, friend and cash were gone. AVe would do our friend an injustice if we did not mention his running ability.

This quiet, unobtrusive gentleman from the home of wooden nutmegs is so reclusive that we hesitate to malign him for fear of injuring a fairly good character, as characters go.

With the firm belief that the fresh cool breezes of our licautiful campus would make an athlete par excellence, Springfield sent one of its best to Aggie. Our home- city boy has more than upheld his reputation as an athlete, as pictures and write-ups in the dailies will amply testify. When Willie is not pulling down for- wards, shooting baskets, or running bases, he is busy with committees and yet, — as the saying goes: " he is a scholar as well as an athlete. " Willie has a rare, fine personality which has won for him not only class honors, but also the distinction of being a member of the Senate.

Her parents did not dare allow Fanny outside of the town, so she came to Aggie to grow older. We cannot see that she has changed much in this respect. Fanny lias made good on the Aggie stage ever since her fresh- man year. Sometime, perhaps, we will see her on the real stage.

A very businesslike and precise individual indeed! Kven to rushing into first class exactly 4J ' 2 minutes late alidut two mornings out of three. As a debater, he liMs ever upheld the class of ' 23 in this field, for he is a man free of speech and firm of convictions. Moreover, lie was born to be an actor, and each year sees him tak- ing a bigger share in the success of dramatics. Bob is still tolerated in the Glee Club, although he has written various poetical sketches about the " lowing of cattle, " etc. He likes to keep the profs guessing; a talent which he has found useful more than once. 78 Clina iWatfjcr Amherst Moss House High School, hitefield, England 1896; Chemistry; Delta Phi Gamma. When Edna first appeared in our midst, she was very dignified and sedate, but the rest of the co-eds were too much for her and she became quite expert in the art of " acting up. " She still remains a student, however, and she believes in taking maximum credits and then some. Edna says she is majoring in Chemistry, but as her time is about evenly divided between the Chem. lab. and the Botany lab., we may expect to find her in either line of work in the future. Although she says little, we will always find in Edna a sturdy supporter of Aggie. agccr JMofjamcbi " MO ' " shook the dust of home from my sandals and roamed afar.

" " Mo " proceeded at once to put the Indian sign on a staggering array of studies. His books know him better than most of his classmates. He has found time, however, to make a number of steadfast friends, to whom he has endeared himself by his sterling character, his never-failing optimism, and his cheering wit.

Aggie is indebted to Newton for sending Bob up here. He made good at football as soon as he arrived, making the Freshman Team, and then making his M in his sophomore year. In any kind of a fight Bob is in his element. In all the class scraps he has been one of our strong-arms. It is rumored that he liked especially the last banquet scrap (refreshments were served). Bob is a mainstay of the 1923 smoker committee and can use the old clay pipe in true " French " style.

He has a fearful habit of skidding down the gridiron on the tip of his nose, but woe be to the opponent who attempts to hinder him in his little pastime. Husky holds medals for bumming.

Nursing pet stock in floricultural lines and sore mus- cles of track athletes have kept " Dick " busy since his advent on the campus. He was once a good boy, but since leaving home how he has changed! Some de- signing female hypnotized him with her eloquent eyes one day when en route from home. Dick hit the to- boggan and has been rapidly sliding ever since. He cheerfully informs us he is taking in all the sights on the way down, so why stop?

" Harrp Cecil iBtorcrosisi " HARRY " " 4 closed mouth catches no flies. " Brimfield, Mass. Technical High, Springfield 1895; Agricultural Economics; Mandolin Club (2); Lambda Chi Alpha. Harry is not what you would call unduly loquacious, but while he lacks in chin music, he sure can talk it up on the violin. Probably not many damsels have wig- gled thru the latest steps in Bashful Harry ' s arms, but many a fair maid in someone else ' s arms, has laid her- self open to criticism, trying to follow the sweet strains of Harry ' s fiddle. But don ' t think, dear reader, that our hero spends all his time emulating the Pied Piper, and endeavoring to lead our Collegiate youth, with his ecstatic music, to the depths of Hades via the dance hall floor. He is sure death to Aggie Ec, and also swings a mean pen in all the various types of quizzes that the diabolical ingenuity of our profs can invent. 80 ©onalb (gilforb i otocrs Danvers, Mass. 1896; Landscape Gardening " DON " A very valiant trencher man.

Where else can you find such versatility? Don has one of these over- grown violins, brought to its present condition by a diet of monkey glands, which he handles with considerable dexterity. His cello (pronounced with the same h that is left out in ' banana " ) is a big factor in the " 2.3 orchestra. iiaUace €acl abbock ■EARL " " Yon heat your pate, and fancy wit will come.

Be pleased to meet, gentle reader, a representative of the " second city " of New England. But, all kidding aside, shouldn ' t we have the deepest respect for one brought up in the slums of Worcester, who will extricate his feet from the dirt and degradation of that mighty metropolis and come to Amherst to breathe God ' s green air, and to learn to be a pomologist. Earl has two allied avocations: playing the piano and pole-vaulting. He is said to be quite a fusser in his native haunts, but ap- parently can ' t see anything in the skirt line around here worth his attention.

It would be utterly futile to attempt to set forth in a mere paragraph all the charms, abilities and vast assort- ment of hair-raising experiences of Mr. Partington; and how useless, when Clyde is always ready to tell you the whole story himself, in a much more lurid and de- tailed manner than is herewithin either practicable or possible. " Part " spent two years at New Hampshire State College, and having exhausted the supply of listeners, spent a year as a Professional Hobo, with a box-car as his parlor and a straw-stack for a hatrack; and then came down to startle Aggie with tales of adventure. Notwithstanding his many faults, Clyde has a gentle heart and a strong arm. He expects to take up as a life work hunting truffles with a pet pig; the poor sucker of a hawg doing all the work, and Clyde pocketing the profits. 81 Cftarlesf jFrancig picatii " PICK " " For thy sake, tobacco, I Would do anything but die.

" Charlie ' s " mind is far above the petty cares of ordinary mortals, and his brow is as yet unwrinkled. When driven to desperation by impending finals he has been known to study far into the night, and up to date has had admirable success in avoiding the Dean ' s Board. It must not be supposed, however, that study- ing is his only dissipation, for he may often be seen of a Friday evening with all sails set for " Hamp, " where it is rumored that he is the idol of the season ' s debutantes. €rncfit tKaplor utnam " PUT " " Another flood oj words ' .

Two weeks after college opened in the fall of ' 19, our class was honored by the appearance of " William Jen- nings " Putman. As his name implies, he proved him- self somewhat of an orator. The members of " 24 shud- der, even now, when reminded of the speech given them by " Put " before the nightshirt parade. In spite of his physical disabilities he has done his share for the college by bossing the freshmen around the hocke,y rink. " Put " believes in " business before pleasure. " There- fore his stamp business must come before his studies. Even so he can make the " profs " think he is overloaded with information. " Put " is a man of strong character.

It is difficult to conceive how such a mature individual should be interested in growing pansies and singing in the Glee Club. Suffice it to say, he is one of our valued song-birds.

Science has made it a cinch to get rid of one ' s appendix, easier now than having a tooth pulled — but research has not yet gone far enough to discover a way of separating Charlie from his cigarette.

Sandy gets really loquacious only when something " riles " him, being normally quiescent. In the " chem lab " he juggles the alkalis and acids, decants the super- natant liquids, rants, roars and curses profanely. These are his excited moments. On the tennis court he fre- quently goes as far as " Oh, gee! " after netting three in a row. When it comes to written English, we doff our chapeaux in acknowledging a superior writer. l icfjmonb l olmcg Sargent " HUCK " " Fair weather cometh out of the North.

After serving abroad with the " heavies, " Huck ob- streperously entered Aggie with the good fold of 1923, and since then has been bombarding his way to fame on the gridiron. Last spring in attempting to rival the episodes of the great Bambino, Huck broke his leg and was unable to establish a new home-run record. He is a typical minister ' s son, and from habitual practice pumping the organ back at Buxton, he has developed a keen ear for music, and incidentally a position behind a French Horn in the Aggie Band. Huck has entered the fusser ' s league with advanced standing, and now calmly awaits the zero hour. jFreb ©rant carsi, Sr. " FREDDIE " " Books mu. t be studied, and a woman is but a walking petticoat. " Dalton Dalton High School 1901; Pomology; Mandolin Club (1, 2); Orchestra (3); Glee Club (3); Pomology Club; Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Phi Sigma Kappa. Believe us, life is a serious proposition. One should not deviate from the path for the sake of what is simply trivial, frivolous, or whimsical. If you don ' t believe us, ask Fred. This calloused individual is susceptible to neither vamps nor moonlight. His emotional center is a violin, and it is a pretty safe bet that nothing else ever tickled his chin. We might continue more along the same strain, but if he ever acquires that indescribable bit of absolute delight known as " my girl, " this stuff would give " Freddie " too good a reputation. 84 CfjarlejJ ertner tjarpe " Who has no will but bi her high permission.

Being old in experience, his words carry weight in argument. He can discourse profoundly on either the surpassing beauty of the neck of Venus de Milo or the variations in the price of sugar, his versatile brain passing quickly from one sweet thing to another. He has pushed a perambulator some few parasangs, and he claims that shock absorbers are more efficient than air cushions. We cannot as yet commit ourselves on this point. tEfjomag jFranciJf fjea " TOM " Holyoke Holyoke High School 1899: Chemistry; Catholic Club; Kappa Gamma Phi. This intellectual young man one would never suspect was brought up in the nearby city of Holyoke, unless one should happen to hear him pronounce the letter " H. " Then the fact would be proven without a doubt. The city holds certain attractions for Tommy other than the place of his birth, the Holyoke Street Railway being supported by his semi-weekly visits. He much prefers the Chem. Lab with its peculiar stench to any other part of the campus and intends to become an honest to goodness chemist.

" Irv " made his official debut on the Aggie stage as a singer in the 1923 Freshman Play, captivating the au- dience, and since then has developed his fascinating charms with forcible effect at every Glee Club Concert. Though residing at No. 96, his mail is delivered at the library, where " Widie " may be found deeply engrossed either in Aggie Ec. or in planning a design for his Phi Kappa Phi key. " Irv " likes the beautiful in more ways than one, for besides his artistic appreciation of the great outdoors, he has an as yet insatiable desire to study chickens, both at Stockbridge and at Smith. 85 Icfferp oole mitfj " JEFF " " Judge not according to the appearance. " West Roxbury, Mass. Boston English High School 1902; Pomology; Class Hockey ( ' 2) ; Class Treasurer (2); Interclass Athletic Board (2); Commons Club. An inborn aversion towards stiff collars and white shirts, and all the other frills of high society, probably accounts for Jeff ' s position as " high-muck-a-muck " of that gang famous throughout North College in Fresh- man days as the " Hobo Rest Society. " For this lordly position the modern Wop which he has picked up in his ditch-digging experience ser ed him in good stead. Jeff still maintains his influential sway over North College, for besides being able to hand out free informa- tion on any subject whatever, he has acted as banker and pawnbroker to many a busted comrade. However, he is, after all, but a common ordinary mortal — a good fellow and a pleasant companion. Cfjomas! Hatljrop noto " TOM " " Wilt thou keep the old way Which wicked men have trodden? " Greenfield, Mass. Greenfield High School 1900; Pomology; Assistant Manager Musical Clubs (3); Alpha Gamma Rho. Although Tom was not elected class roughhouser, we are sure the vote was close. And as for his boisterous manners, wow! However, he is known better to his classmates for his perseverance in finishing well what- ever he undertakes. As a loyal supporter of all college activities and a generous friend to all, Tom ' s rating is A No. 1. Of the various sister colleges in the vicinity, he favors Mrs. Smith ' s School, otherwise known as Smith College, with particular leanings towards winter sports there. As an experienced guide to the campus there, he is second to none. Cbtuin banner " EDDIE " " Care to ovr coffin adds a nail, no doubt. And every grin so merry draws one out.

Proof against any of the ordinary knocks of the cold, cruel world, Eddie ' s cheerful grin always prevails. He leads a carefree life, usually appearing about 11:30 P. M., with a casual query of, " What ' s the lesson for to- morrow? " He possesses a love for travel, which he ])r(ili:ibly acquired in his wanderings in quest of sub- scriptions for the " Pictorial Review, " He is never daunted for means of transportation, for if he cannot liire a ride, he does not hesitate to " bum " one.

Eddie got thru his Fresh- man year with his nose under water most of the time, but it was in Physics 25 that the flower of his youth wilted under the hot and withering blasts of Billy ' s irony. Sometimes down but never out, Tiz would have been a big man if so much of his legs hadn ' t been turned under to make his feet. This little cuteness is a popular guy over the Mountain, where the girls think he is too young to be dangerous. Eddie is taking up Pom; not because he wants to be an orchardist, but because he wants to graduate from dear old Aggie.

This species has not yet been properly classified as it is not seen often enough for scientific observation. Its chief habitat is North College, but it is often report- ed in the vicinity of Hallock Street, and also of the Methodist Church. Its range is limited, it seldom be- ing seen north of the Hash House. Said to summer in Cambridge, where it hibernated under the elms for seventeen years, and acquired an academic outlook up- on life that is seemingly contradicted by its activities at M. A. C, which are chiefly devoted to cattle. Des- pite this constant haunting of the barns it is not be- lieved to be of the same genus as the Cow Bird. 87 Carroll saibcn tKotone " Stately and tall he mores in the hall The chief of a thousand for grace.

Carrol resembles a lighthouse when the stage lights shimmer and glisten on those blonde locks during a musical club ' s concert. He strums a mandolin in a man- ner that inspires one ' s soul to the utmost jazz altitudes. A clever manipulator of the pen, the art work in this Index is evidence of his ability. Blessed with an artistic temperament, he gracefully cuts classes, fusses, and becomes profane. That he leaves no trail of muti- lated feminine hearts, sobbing breasts, and inundated eyes behind him is due to his diplomacy and good nature. iHlaUomb Cbtoarb ®umcj " ED " " How I hare hated instruction.

Dot believes in a change of atmosphere every few years. She started her career in Dorchester, but as she grew older (and wiser) she realized that she needed the breadth and freedom of country life. Consequently she stopped for a while in the little settlement of Nor- wottuck, which may be better known to some of us under the name of South Amherst. Although her home is now in Washington, D. C, Dot still stays with us at Aggie. We hope that the wanderlust will not come to her again until it strikes us all. She seems to think that the position of County Agent or Home Demonstrator will give her a varied and interesting life, so we may see her whizzing about in her flivver in a few years telling the boys and girls how to feed a pig or the mothers how to make a cake. Dot is always ready for a good time and adds to one with her man- dolin. 88 l tctiarti (gootitDin Henbell " DICK " " If you could sec his comely gait and pretty face ' s smites.

Dick puts a great deal of energy into non-athletics. The Glee and Mandolin Clubs, oratory, and debates all claim his efforts, and success has been his reward. Dick is a good student and should soon wear a Phi Kappa Phi key. We have heard that he used to be a confirmed member of the bachelor ' s club, but every year is lea p year with some young ladies. He is quite an artist at the piano, and he plays the organ so well that Mr. Watts has given him the privilege of attending every chapel in order to play a selection while the rest of us finish our breakfasts after a wild dash from the " hash house.

Newton is responsible for Whit, tho the town vigor- ously denies it. He has an uncanny ability for fooling our respected profs, and difficult courses hardly seem to rouse him from his lethargy. Ordinarily the epitome of laziness, once the boy grasps a hockey stick, he " snaps out of it " in a startling manner. Baseball has a similar effect, but we cannot say the same for " Aggie Ec.

' No matter, results count, and this tyro goes after results, believing that the end justifies the means. To catch " Whit " in action, watch him on a horse during cav- alry drill. Perhaps hanging on to the leather now and then, or ever and anon entwining his arms fondly around his stead ' s neck, he personifies action, frantic action. No argument is complete without his personal opinion, and he is very frank in expre ssing this opinion. Altho a busy man, " Whit " finds time to worship at that shrine " over the river.

The question is, did inherited instincts or de- sire for closer connections with Smith and Mount Holyoke induce " Dooley " to matriculate at Aggie. ' He manages his courses in good style, and fills the role of a cavalry officer in like manner. As captain of the pistol team he is perforating bull ' s-eyes with rapidity and precision. When the occasion has demanded, he has donned a football uniform and creditably upheld the class reputation. His muscular strength can easily be traced to the onions of his native hamlet. Conrab IL.

Taking the good advice of his father to " Go East, Young Man, " Connie started from far-off Minneapolis and now actually sees before him the dim outline of a college diploma. He early showed possibilities as a military rival of Colonel Walker, but " still yet, " foot- ball and Freshman English are a little more along his line. When it comes to pep, just look for Connie. There is one thing he can do, and that is cheer; there is one thing he cannot do, and that is sing.

We thought Woodys middle initial stood for speed until vc looked up the matter. If you want to see some real Hglitinfj ' lilood in action, watch Woody come down ovei the hurdles when the competition is keen. More than one hurdler has seen himself beaten in the last ten yards of the race. Woody is the most dependable man on the track squad and can be relied on in almost any event. However, his good work is not confined to athletics, for Phi Kappa Phi seems within his grasp. Rumor has it that he aspires to a happy family. Woody usually gets what he is after. 90 " GOLDIE " " Good cheer is the oil for one ' x gear. " Roxbury Salem High School 1899; Agricultural Economics; Delta Phi Alpha. ■ " Goldie " and " incorrigible optimist " have become synonymous terms in South College. This optimism is endowed with a wide range — it has a sweep from quiet serenity and cheerfulness at one extreme to bois- terous joviality at the other. Perhaps we can explain this phenomenon by saying that Goldie ' s optimism varies with the varying moods of his pipe, which has become almost a necessary part of his facial makeup. Aggie Ec. 78 has taken a strong hold on our optimistic youth, for he will not consider, countenance, or embrace any new proposition unless he is duly presented with " the facts and figures, " and " logic is logic. " His hair, by the way, is not the source of his nickname. Jobn M- Minn, Jr. " JACK " " Sleep my tittle one — Sleep my pretty one — Sleep.

Jack has the old comeback spirit and though original- ly of the class of ' 18 decided to return and cast his lot with ' 23. While a mustache is a privilege of a married man, yet one must obey senior customs, and with pre- vious experience. Jack knows already how to train it for next year. They say old timers are never the same, but to see him on the basketball floor playing on the class team, would dispel all such fallacies. Jack plans to announce his candidacy for the shot-put this spring because of the wicked muscle developed i n pushing about his wicker perambulator.

Mouradian Jfregftman €U J isitorp SEPTEMBER twenty-eighth, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hun- dred and twenty-one, the hitherto unknown class of nineteen twenty-five sprang into existence one hundred and sixty strong. Soon after this appearance heralded by splendid weather, hostilities arose between the unappreciative class of twenty-four and the class of twenty-five. Of these hostilities, in the first, the poster scrap, the freshmen (such a misplaced name, for never did a more docile set of students ever enter college) were victorious, since the sophomores lost all their posters. In individual work the younger class showed a marked superiority, winning the boxing and wrestling matches. Then, after the " Sophs " had weak- ened the forces of the " Freshies " by paddling, the nightshirt parade took place. After the difficulties the Freshmen had been through it was to be expected that the self-appointed lords and masters of the class of nineteen twenty-five suc- ceeded in securing sixty per cent of the nightshirts. Hardly had the freshmen recovered from this when they were challenged by the sophomores to a sixty- man rope-pull. This challenge was immediately accepted by the dauntless class of nineteen twenty-five. In spite of the frantic entreaties and gestures of their loyal friends the Juniors, the sixty freshmen were dragged through the invigorating water of the pond. In the Freshman-Sophomore football game, the freshmen were unfortunate. They lost two of their best men, enabling the sophomore team to come out ahead, although not by a very big score. Then, to make the despair of the freshman class complete, they lost the six-man rope- pull, but not without good hard pulling on the part of the sturdj ' team. Though the sophomores boast their laurels at present, other contests are yet to come. 107 Clasig of 1925 Adams, Kathleen P. Worcester North High School. Aldrich, George S. Dean Academy.

A. C. have for many years been regulated, for the most part, by the students themselves. Student government is very largely in the hands of four organizations, the Senate, the Women ' s Student Council, the Honor Council, and Adelphia. The Senate is the executive body for all four year students, the Women ' s Student Council makes special regulations for the women students, Adelphia is the Senior Honorary Society, and the Honor Council has charge of all matters pertaining to the Honor System of Examina- tions. The SENATE is composed of eleven members, seven of these being Seniors, and four. Juniors. These are elected by the Student body from lists of nominees made by their respective classes. Upon the Senate rests the responsibility for the upholding of college traditions and customs. It is the Senate which lays down the rules for the especial guidance of " the wayward frosh, " it is before this august and supreme body that the misguided culprit is brought for trial and is awarded a fitting punishment. In addition, members of the Senate act as referees in all Sophomore-Freshman contests. The origin of the Senate is lost in the dim and shadowy past. No record of its organization has been found. Apparently it passed thru no bottle-fed in- fancy nor timorous childhood; it was born a man-sized institution. Shortly after the dawn of recorded history, in 1899 to be precise, there appeared the first record of the Senate in a Student publication. In Aggie Life, for Oct. 4, 1899, in a column conducted by the " Idlers, " we find this terse statement regard- ing the Senate and its esteem: " this institution, will continue to be the ruling power, more to be feared than the secret Senate of Venice, more to be respected than the venerable Senate of the Roman people. The Idler extends caution to those who would tamper with the chained dog. " The first mention of the Senate in an Index is in that of the class of 190 ' 2. The Senate then consisted of eight members, the President being C. E. Gordon ' 01, none other than the present head of the Department of Geology and Zoology. 118 During the twenty or more years of its existence, the Senate has gained in prestige and power. It has maintained college ideals and customs and it has acted conservatively and wisely in student relations so that faculty action in such affairs is now a rare occurrence. Membership in the Senate is considered the highest honor that a student can attain at college. The WOMEN ' S STUDENT COUNCIL was estabhshed in 1919. Its pur- pose is " to control all appropriate matters pertaining to the conduct of women students. " It is composed of seven members, three seniors, three juniors, and one sophomore elected by all women students. The council has instituted rites and customs to be observed by the co-ed freshmen, it has made regulations for the conduct of all women students, and, most of all, it has served to bring the co-ed more into college life and activities. The HONOR COUNCIL. ' Tf I lose mine honor, I lose myself. " With this as its watchword, the Honor System was introduced at M. A. C. by the class of 1921 in its freshman year. The Honor System remained a class institu- tion for two years, after which it was adopted by all the four-year classes. The Honor Council consists of seven members, three seniors, two juniors, one sophomore, and one freshman, elected by their classmates. Their duties are to have general charge of all matters pertaining to the Honor System, to interpret the Constitution and to try, and convict or acquit, any case of alleged dishonor that may come to its attention. The preamble of the Constitution of the Honor System reads: " We, the students of Massachusetts Agricultural College, believe that the goal of education is character. The man of character deals fairly with himself and with others, and would rather suffer failure than stoop to fraud. The Honor System stands for this attitude in all relations of the students with the faculty. " Membership on the Honor Council is a certificate of character. ADELPHIA. There is a skeleton in the family closet and in the case of Adelphia, that skeleton is — horror of horrors! — 9NE! Theta Nu Epsilon, the arch enemy of justice and destroyer of character! An organization of fiends with no respect for student rules and less for those of the faculty! An organiza- tion outlawed, hunted and disgraced! Adelphia is a direct descendant of 9N E, a grandchild, in fact, and here is the story: For years, in the younger days of the college, there existed a subrosa chapter of the great 9NE, a national fraternity of doubtful character. The local or- ganization flourished, it initiated faculty members, and grew bolder until at length it threw off its cloak of secrecy, and its members admitted openly that they were members of the Eta Eta Chapter of Theta Nu Epsilon. To do justice to the departed, Theta Nu Epsilon at M. A. C. never exhibited any of the disagreeable characteristics which brought it into disfavor at other 119 institutions. The members of GNE were unquestionably the most popular men on the campus and the leaders in activities and its faculty members were the most respected, among them being Professors Hasbrouck, Sprague, Mac- kimmie and Hicks. The workings of the local chapter appeared to be perfectly honorable, and its ideal to help the college. Nationally, however, the fraternity acquired a far different reputation, and the local chapter could but suffer as a result. Faculty opposition, coupled with the refusal of other fraternities on the campus to permit its members to join, eventually forced the local chapter to disband. In the following year, 1913, two student honorary societies made their appearance — Karotid, among whose charter members was " Kid " Gore, and Thesides, which absorbed most of the former members of GNE. The existence of two honorary societies, each with similar ideals, working in competition with each other, led to the fusion of the two societies in the following year into the present honorary society, Adelphia. The members of Adelphia elect new members from the Junior Class near the end of the school year. Members of Adelphia are selected for all-round leader- ship and service in college, both in scholarship and activities. Adelphia conducts student forums, and seeks to encourage student activities, but has no legislative or executive powers. Membership in Adelphia is an honor surpassed only by membership in the Senate. These four organizations exercise all practical leadership of the student bodJ Adelphia helps to determine the sentiment of the classes towards college customs and to introduce new ideas, and altho it has no authority over the student bod s its influence is nevertheless a powerful one. The Honor Council has proved its worth in the few years of its existence. The Honor System is no longer on trial; it is a pronounced success and a credit to M. A. C. The increasing number of women students is making the Women ' s Student Council an organization of increasing importance. It works in a quiet but capable and effective way. The Senate is the leading student organization. Altho it is granted no authority by the faculty, the right of the Senate to rule is unquestioned by the students. Efficient and capable work for many years has rewarded the Senate with the full and unqualified support of every student. Aggie ' s present and future rests secure in the qualities of leadership and character shown in these four organ- izations. 120 belpljia Smith Collins Gowdy Vinten Lewandowski Jackson Membete in tfte Jfacultp George H.

COLLEGE fraternities are too closely related to the institutions with which they are associated to be considered without bringing into consideration the characteristics of those institutions. They cannot be treated apart from the college. In describing the fraternity situation at colleges the only practical method is to take the situation at each individual college. So, the conditions at M. A. C. do not necessarily apply to all other colleges, nor do the conditions at other colleges apply to M. A. C. That fraternities occupy an important place in our student life can be seen by the fact that in the 1920-1921 scholastic year eighty-six percent of the four-year student body were members of fraternal or- ganizations on the campus. Though much may be said about fraternities both pro and con, the majority of M. A. C. men are fraternity men. The first two fraternities to be formed at M. A. C. were the D. G. K. and the Q. T. v., both in 1869. The former became a chapter of Kappa Sigma in 1904. In 1873 Phi Sigma Kappa was organized. This is now a national fraternity with thirty chapters. In 1879 the College Shakesperian Club was formed as a non- secret organization which in 1913 became a chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi. In 1909 Kappa Gamma Phi was organized, and in the following year Beta Kappa Phi came into being, this becoming a chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho in 1917. In 1911 the Theta Chi fraternity established a chapter on the campus, followed in 1912 by the Sigma Phi Epsilon and Lambda Chi Alpha fraternities. The Delta Phi Alpha fraternity made its appearance in 1916. In 1913 a chapter of the Commons Club was organized. The sorority. Delta Phi Gamma, was founded on the campus in 1915. This became an honorary sorority February 13, 1922. These are the fraternities now existing at the college. In the past others have been formed, but their life has been short. The first Interfraternity Conference was organized in 1903. Faculty mem- bers were at first among the members of the conference, but at present students comprise the entire group, although faculty members are admitted to the meet- ings. Each chapter has two representatives in the conference, and all chapters have equal voting powers. The question of the effect of fraternities on the student naturally arises. There are at M. A. C. about four hundred and fifty men taking a regular course leading to a degree. These men are eligible for fraternity membership. They naturally get together in several groups, as any large number of men would do under similar circumstances. The fraternity furnishes opportunities for these groups to form under the best conditions. The college interests are sponsored above all else; college spirit is fostered; congenial companions with diverse in- terests are afforded, the athlete becomes acquainted with the so-called grind; men are urged to participate in college life and to do their best. It would be impossible for four hundred and fifty men to have unity without the several small 126 parts of the entire number all striving for that unity. The fraternities have the interests of the college at heart, and new members have that interest instilled into them. A certain pride is taken in the fraternity. The desire on each member ' s part to make good is manifest. It is often asserted that the fraternities are not dem- ocratic. Such is not the case. When a fraternity looks up a prospective mem- ber, the only things considered are his present personal characteristics. Nothing can be more democratic. The fraternities at M. A. C. are a very definite force making towards better men and a better college. It has been sometimes asserted that the fraternities lower the scholastic standing of the college by diverting attention from studies. Such is obviously a mistaken idea. No fraternity wishes to damage its reputation by losing men because they have failed in their studies. At present there is a scholarship cup awarded each year to the fraternity having the highest scholarship average. The average last year of all the fraternities was between 76% and 77%, a fairly good standing. It has also been asserted that fraternities divide the student body into fraternity men on one side and non-fraternity men on the other. The only answer is that nearly all the men, 86%, are fraternity men. A perhaps just criticism is made that the men who need the fraternity most are most likely to be rejected by the fraternities. In the instinctive realization that only the fittest survive, the least fit are sometimes left in the lurch, and the best men, theoretically at least, are picked. However, the tendency is more and more towards taking in such men as are most benefitted by the fraternity, and if a man is judged solely by his character, this ideal is realized. Moreover, there are always men who have no desire to join a fraternity, and there will ever be such men. The relations between fraternities at M. A. C. are of the best. The Inter- fraternity Conference adjusts all interfraternity matters. Scholarship and baseball cups and a relay plaque are awarded in interfraternity contests. Rush- ing rules, which are adhered to with the best of spirit, are made by the conference. Many bitter arguments are held as to the good and bad points of fraternities. Most of the evils thought to be connected with fraternal life are pure imagination and are due to the fact that every time a fraternity man cuts a caper, the act receives wide publicity. As a force making for the best in college life the frater- nities hold a significant place. 127 HiLYARD Beal Spring Friend Alexander Sullivan Folsom Gordon Hallett Borgeson Murray Moseley Waugh Gowdy Kroeck Wentsch 3nterfraternitp Conference 0ilittv Carlyle H.

J r CjVllHHL, IB Mi i eligioug %iit A COLLEGE education is deplorably small if it does not include the teaching of the heart along with the teaching of the mind. With this view of a real college education in mind, the importance of Aggie ' s religious institutions cannot be overestimated. They are powerful agents in our scheme of education. They broaden a man ' s vision; they provide opportuni- ties for self -development and a share in the development of others; they open up the treasures of serious friendship and world fellowship. The type of men graduated from Aggie bears testimony to the mighty work carried on by these institutions. The chapel services conducted in Bowker Auditorium play a big part in the religious development of the students. The speakers at these services are leaders in thought and service — men with important messages. The largest and most inclusive organization engaged in this vital religious work is the M. A. C. Christian Association. This body invites into its ranks all those who are in sympathy with its work. The annual program of the Association has on its list a large and widely diversified number of activities and offers splendid opportunities for valuable work. The activities are carried out both on and off the campus. Mission study classes, Bible study classes, and the general weekly meetings occupy the interest of the men on the campus. A series of " World Fellowship " classes, held weekly, aims to permeate the men with the spirit of world citizenship, and to acquaint them with the needs of other countries as well as with those of our own. The Association is ready to be of help to all students in countless ways, and is es- pecially anxious to aid Freshmen with their difficulties. The Y. W. C. A. binds the women of M. A. C. in closer fellowship and fills their religious needs. The Student Volunteer Band is composed of those students who have definitely decided to become foreign missionaries and are therefore desirovis of gaining a thorough preparation for their calling. M. A. C. is renowned in the Far East for the number and the quality of her men who have entered the mission field. The M. A. C. Catholic Club was founded in 1912. It has for its object the advancement of religion among the Catholic students. The principal feature of its meetings is an address by some prominent person of the Catholic faith. The Catholic Club does good work in caring for the religious needs of the Catholic students. In 191.5, a group of Jewish men established a Menorah Society at M. A. C. The object of this organization is to promote the study and advancement of Jewish culture and ideals. The Society provides lectures, discussions, and study circles on subjects of Jewish interest. Membership is open to men and women of all creeds and religions. The Menorah Society is doing remarkable work, especially for the Jewish students. The College authorities are in strong sympathy with all these activities and bend their efforts towards their success. They realize the value — yes, the necessity, of religion in a well-rounded education. 157 i joK {.m PROFESSIONAL Clubs at M. A. C. are referred to as major clubs. These clubs are composed, for the most part, of students majoring in a certain branch of agriculture but interested underclassmen and short course students are generally admitted. Some of the leading major clubs are the Agricultural Economics Club, the Animal Husbandry Club, Florists and Gardeners Club, Pomology Club. Landscape Gardeners Club and Poultry Club. The Agricultural Economics Club is the largest organization. It holds bi- weekly meetings, the program generally consisting of an address by a successful business man, followed by a forum and social hour. The Animal Husbandry Club holds bi-weekly meetings in the form of a series of lectures by the leading practical breeders, veterinarians, and dairymen. The Florists and Gardeners Club gives one or more annual Flower Shows each year, and in addition to its regular meetings, it frequently holds joint meetings with the Florists and Garden- ers Clubs of Holyoke, Northampton, Hadley and vicinity. The Pomology Club gives several fruit exhibits each year and its members have achieved remarkable success for several years in their judging contests with other colleges. The smokers of the Landscape Gardeners Club are justly famous, and while this organization does not devote such a large part of its time to the study of the Landscape Art, as some of the other major clubs spend upon their hobbies, it is decidedly a live and useful organization where there is work to be done for the college. The Poultry Show in November, which was in charge of the Poultry Club, excited the most favorable comment and placed the Poultry Club on the list of clubs which are a decided asset to the institution. All of these clubs are of very ancient and honorable origin. Eve is said to be the charter member of the Pomology Club and Adam was the first initiate. Statistics taken by the Agricultural Economics Club tend to prove that all of the subsequent ills of mankind are the result, either directly or indirectly, of member- ship in the Pomological fraternity. Rivalry between the Florists and Gardeners Club and the Animal Husbandry Club has been intense since the beginning of history when Cain, first president of the Gardeners Club bounced a rock from the cranium of his brother Abel, at that time presiding officer of the Animal Husbandry organization. Justice to the Landscape Gardeners Club makes it necessary to state that its members did not design the Chemistry building, nor should the Poultry Club be confused with the Women ' s Student Council. 158 9 2 Flli ' I N D E X ilajot Clutjg Animal Hu banbrp Cjub ©ffitcrsf Stanley L.

C. was born as soon as the College began to receive its first students in 1869. Rowing and shell racing were immediately introduced and received with en- thusiasm; and soon a crew was formed which could vie with the best in the country. Amherst College was the first victim to fall before the crew ' s prowess, in a race on the Connecticut River at Hatfield. It was on July 21, 1871, however, at Ingleside, that the Aggie crew covered itself with glory and left an achievement for future Aggie generations to remember and admire. In a three- cornered race, with Harvard, Brown, and Aggie as the participants, the M. A. C. crew showed its superiority by a decisive triumph, winning over Harvard by the tremendous margin of fourteen boatlengths, and leaving the dejected Brown Bear trailing far behind. From rowing the first classes turned their attention to baseball. The sport at that time was in its infancy and did not arouse much interest. With its gradual development, however, and its rise to the title of " the great national sport, " came similar progress at M. A. C. It was not long before a sound baseball organization was established and games arranged with many colleges. Nor was Aggie backward in adopting football, which, as time went on, became more fascinating and full of excitement, till it earned the title of " the king of college sports. " As the game took on more of a scientific aspect, and competition became keener, M. A. C. followed the example of other colleges and perfected a coaching system. Hockey was first played at Aggie in 1909. It met with instantaneous popularity and success, and now ranks high as a varsity sport. Basketball was made a part of Aggie athletics in 1902. Every year it has gained in popularity until its success as a varsity sport is assured. In 1887, a Lawn Tennis Association was formed. The sport enjoyed varsity rating and more than mediocre success till 1913, when the falling off of material due to the transfer of interest to more thrilling sports caused tennis to be dropped from varsity rank. Track has always claimed much interest, and draws a host of ambitious men each year . The team competes annually in the Eastern Intercollegiate and New England Intercollegiate meets as well as in dual meets with other colleges. When the colleges of the country began to realize more clearly the value of athletics, Aggie de- cided to embark upon an intensive program, and invited Professor Hicks to be the guiding helms- man in its new adventure. Results show that Professor Hicks piloted a wonderful course. He reshaped the Physical Education Department and put it on a sound, active basis. Physical train- ing was made compulsory for the members of the Freshman and Sophomore classes, credits being awarded in the courses towards the degree. The coaching system was reorganized on a faculty basis in 1918 and in Harold M. ( " Kid " ) Gore was vested control over varsity football, basketball, and baseball. Student interest and enthusiasm in athletics was brought to such a high pitch that the splendid new Alumni field was constructed solely by the students under the supervision of the director of athletics. The present Aggie athletic system is a busy, hardworking force, which merits one hundred per cent support. It may be pertinent now to bring to light some of the characteristics which have marked Aggie athletics from the very beginning: Aggie Athletics are clean. The motto has always been " Play the game and play it right. " The reputation of Aggie in this respect has travelled far. Aggie athletics are honest. The college has not deviated one whit from the strict enforcement of eligibility rules and intercollegiate regulations. Aggie athletics are of the never-say-die spirit. The teams have signally demonstrated time and again that no matter how utterly overwhelmed they may be, they can work themselves up to a fighting spirit that takes their opponents completely by surprise. This trait has become a by-word for Aggie teams. Aggie athletics are popular. Three hundred and forty-seven men out of a total enrollment of less than seven hundred engaged in voluntary athletics in the spring of 1920 — a remarkable achieve- ment and a record of which to be proud. Aggie athletics enlist the loyalty and the whole-hearted support of the entire ■•itiident body. The numbers that follow the teams by hook-or-crook methods to the most distant games are ample testimony to the spirit of the student body. Aggie backs its teams as well through an unsuccessful season as through a jubilantly victorious .season. ' The greatest tribute to Aggie athletics lies in the fact that they leave with the students not the remembrance of a jumble of victories and defeats, but the sacred realization of the things for which they stand and the spirit with which they are imbued.

An en- viable record for any team! A further glimpse at the score card shows that this team scored 114 runs as against the 55 of its opponents. Some of the strongest nines of the East were on this schedule, games which showed Aggie to be well worthy of the position she has now taken in intercollegiate athletics. Of the four defeats, two were shutouts from the crack Harvard and Tufts nines. One of the games went to Brown, by the score of 4-3, in a sensational 14- inning tilt. The other defeat was to Amherst, in another thrilling game, when the winning tally came across in the 13th, due to an unfortunate error in judgment. The many large scores run up by the team show what hard hitters made up that 1921 aggregation, while several of the games went to the ninth inning before Aggie could come across with the winning count with well-bunched hits. Two of the most notable victories were over our old rivals, Springfield and Amherst. On Memorial Day the team enjoyed a 9- run batfest at the expense of three Springfi eld pitchers, while Brighani was in true form. The Commencement game with Amherst on Alumni Field, 4-2, was a suc- cessful climax for the season. The team got to Zink, Amherst star pitcher, and aided by several errors put across 4 runs, a lead which could not be overcome. Collins, pitching for Aggie, had almost perfect support and kept the visitors well in hand. The team got nearly everything that looked safe, and in the ninth with the bases full and one Amherst man scored, the last two men went down in style. Good teamwork as well as individual playing stood out in the team ' s success. The pitching staff was upheld mainly by Brigham, Kroeck, and Collins, all of whom featured in big games and split even on the honors. Captain Newell played a steady game behind the bat the whole season, handling his job in an experienced manner. The veteran infield, consisting of Davi s, Lent, Mosely, and Kroeck, could not be beaten, and in their true form were an air-tight com- bination. The outfield was always sure of itself, and Ball, Collins, and Gordon made many sensational catches, robbing their opponents of almost sure hits. Gordon, replacing Sargent who was injured early in the season, proved himself to be one of the surest hitters in the line-up. Others who could be depended on to hit safely were Kroeck, Ball, and Moseley. 167 The schedule with scores: — M. A. C. Opps. Stevens 9 1 B. U. Brooklyn P. I. 2 1 Clark Wore. Tech. 4 2 Tufts R. I.

Among the large number of candidates who came out to work under Coach Law- rence Dickinson ' 10 were many of the old men, as well as a large number of new men, especially from the under classes. Altho many of these new men gave promise of good work in the future, the old men remained the mainstay of the team. One of the greatest misfortunes of the year was the losing of Sullivan ' 22, dash man, who pulled a tendon just before the first meet. Without him we were lacking in experienced short distance men. The first meet of the season was with Amherst at Pratt Field on April 30. The lack of good material coupled with the loss of Sullivan greatly handicapped us. The final score was 93-15 in the favor of Amherst. Capt. Slate ran well in this meet, winning the mile and coming in second in the half mile. The next week. May 7, we journeyed to Rhode Island and were again defeat- ed this time the score being 63-53. MacCready was injured in this meet and was unable to run during the rest of the season. Capt. Slate ran in his usual form, winning the half-mile, mile, and the two-mile. The Eastern Intercollegiate meet came May 14. It rained most of the day and made the track too wet for any fast times. The team made eight points in this meet, which is more than any team from Aggie ever made before in any inter- collegiate meet. Capt. Slate, as expected, placed in the mile, getting second, be- ing beaten out by Doherty of Tufts on the home stretch. West obtained a fourth in the two-mile. Acheson came in fourth in the quarter mile in a close finish, the first four men being bunched. The surprise of the day was a second place by Woodworth in the low hurdles. The New England Intercollegiate meet came May 20 and 21. Slate, West, and Acheson went to this meet but were unable to score any points. The triangular meet, held at home, was the last and best meet of the season. New Hampshire won, scoring heavily in the field events. Several of the college records were broken in this meet. Capt. Slate broke the record for the two mile run, doing it in 10 mins. 14 1-5 sees. Woodworth broke the record for the low hurdles, being timed at 27 sees.

This fall regular track work was installed instead of cross country. Many men showed up for practice, for there were many different events in which they could compete. Two interclass meets were held during the season. On Oct. 15th a novice meet was held for all men who had not won any points in intercollegiate competition. The class of 1923 won this meet, mainly because of the good show- ing of Kelly, who won three first places. On Nov. 5th a handicap meet was held, and again the class of IQ S won. The showing the men made in these two meets has proved that fall track is of assistance in lining up the material for the spring season.

There was an important change in this year ' s schedule, for a game with Amherst, on Pratt Field, was substituted for the annual contest which has been held for so many years with Springfield. Over forty players returned to college in the fall, ten days early, to start training for the football season, and the opening of college found our eleven s working out on Alumni Field. A somewhat new idea was inaugurated by the establishment of a second team composed of seniors who had no chance of making the varsity, but who came out simply to help out the first team, and also of under- graduates who were climbing the ladder. The graduating seniors, who had been out for the varsity for three years, and played on the second team, were awarded in accordance with a new ruling by the Athletic committee, the aMa and sweaters, as a reward for their faithful service. The Pond Memorial medal, the greatest football honor which Aggie can be- stow upon a player was awarded to John N. Lewandowski, of Easthampton, full- back of the 1921 team and one of the greatest football men Aggie ever developed. The first game of the season found a light eleven lined up on Alumni Field against the much heavier Connecticut Aggie team. A touchdown and two field goals resulted in a 13-0 victory for the Maroon and White. The following week the team journeyed to Lewiston, Maine, and battled Bates to a scoreless tie. A rainy day and a high wind made good playing im- possible, with both teams waiting for the break that never came. The third game of the season resulted in a rather easy win over AVorcester Tech. Aggie scored but one touchdown in the first half, but came back strong in the third period, scoring four more touchdowns before the end of the game. The next week saw the M. A. C. eleven on Pratt field for the first football game with Amherst in fourteen years. About 5,000 people saw the game, the cleanest and one of the most bitterly contested contests ever played between the two institutions. Aggie was forced to return with a 13-0 defeat, but the score is little evidence of the comparative strength of the teams and of the way Captain 173 i}t tKeam George A. Cotton, " 22 .

Two goals from placement in the second quarter and an intercepted forward in the final period accounted for the Amherst scores. Captain Cotton and Lewandowski played a wonderful game, the latter ' s abilty standing second to none other on the entire field. This was the last game for " Hub " Collins, captain-elect of hockey and baseball, for he was forced to give up football because of appendicitis. The breaks the following week again went to our opponents and the team was defeated 14-7 on Alumni Field by Vermont. Though defeated, everyone realized that Aggie had a powerful team which outplayed their opponents almost every minute of the game, and were barely beaten by a very much heavier eleven. A costly fumble by Aggie which was snatched up for a 95 yard run again spelled defeat when Rhode Island in the next game beat their Bay State rivals 7-2. The offensive work of Grayson and Lewandowski shone above all else, but to no avail. Things seemed to go from bad to worse, for the varsity received their fourth defeat of the season when they lost to New Hampshire State 56-7, at Durham. The Granite Staters were by far the stronger team, heavy and fast, and tearing almost at will up the soaked and slippery field. More than one hundred loyal supporters who had " bummed " their way to the game stood in a cold steady drizzle and cheered for the Aggie eleven which was running up against the best football team they had met all season. In the final game of the season the team came into its own and wound up the season by beating Tufts, Aggie ' s big rival by a 14-0 score. The victory brought a rosy tinge to a rather blue season, for the team had " come back " and redeemed itself in the last opportunity of the year. Every football team at Aggie receives at one time or another in the course of the season, a nickname, and the night before the Tufts game, Captain Cotton ' s eleven was christened the " White Rats, " a name which they well lived up to by defeating the Tufts Jumbo, the following day. John Lewandowski, winner of the Pond Memorial Medal, ended his football career in a blaze of triumph by making one touchdown, punting wonderfully and carrying the ball for a gain on every attempt. The largest football banquet ever held, terminated the season and the follow- ing men were awarded their letters: 1922 — Captain Cotton, Lewandowski, Freeman, Acheson, Clark, Field, Packer, Collins, Leland, Bent, and Manager Peck; 1923 — Captain-elect Grayson, Sargent, Beal, Marshman, Mohor, Alger, Mudgett, Tumey; 1924— Salmon. The 1922 team will be led by Captain Raymond Grayson of Milford, and has the opportunity of playing the best and most comprehensive schedule ever arranged for an Aggie eleven. The team will play the first intersectional football game in Aggie history when it engages Michigan Agricultural College at East Lansing, Michigan on November 25. The only other change on the schedule is to be the game with Stevens which is to be played in Hoboken, N.

Lansing, Mich. 14- - 17(i Ilocfeep Beginning the season with only two veterans from last year ' s fast team and with the hardest schedule ever arranged for an Aggie team before it, Aggie turned out what might be considered the best team that it has ever had. In all, eleven games were played, six of which were won and five were lost. The first game of the season resulted in a defeat by Dartmouth in a close and exciting game on our home rink. Then the team went on their first trip of the season in which they broke even, defeating Yale but losing to M. I. T. the follow- ing night, the team weakening in the last period, tired out after the hard game with Yale. After the game with Yale, one New Haven paper said, " Yale was out- skated and no Eli player approached the individual game put up by Collins and Lyons. " Next, Amherst and Bates were defeated on the home rink, and then the team journeyed to New York where it was defeated by Cornell and Hamilton. It was after this trip that Captain Collins relieved Coach Mansell as coach of the hockey team, and it was here that the real success and prowess of the team began to show itself. The team now made another trip to New York, in which they gave West Point their first defeat of the season. Then about one week later the team journeyed to Philadelphia where they took on the fast St. Nicholas and Quaker City Hockey Club teams, two of the best in the east. It was in these two games that the teams surprised the Philadelphians, for they could not imagine an Agricultural College turning out such a team as they saw defeat the St. Nicks 3-2, and then one night later hold the Quaker City team to an even score until within five minutes of the end of the game, when, tired out by the hard game of the night before, they could not make their skates respond to their will, and they lost 5-1. A few quotations taken from Philadelphia papers are as follows: — " Six young Massachusetts farmers defeated the St. Nicholas hockey team from New York City last night at the local Ice Palace, 3 goals to 2. It was a splendid team of players, this Massachusetts Agricultural College bunch. They played just about the best game seen here by any college this season. " " Incidentally, Kroeck, the Aggie ' s goalkeeper, displayed some stickwork, the like of which is seldom seen at the local Ice Palace, and it was the general opinion that he rates as a wonderful goalkeeper. " Also, " Their Captain, Collins, is one of the best defence players on the ice today. " The season was successfully closed when Amherst was defeated for the second time in a close and exciting game by a 1-0 score. From the standpoint of games won and lost it might appear that the team did not have a very successful season, but when it is considered that every one of the 177 Jlotfeep Herbert L. Collins, ' 22 .

Throughout the season Captain ColHns was the star of every game which the team played. In all the games he was ably assisted by Lyons and Gordon, for- wards, and Haskins, center. Lyons was, next to Captain Collins, the high scorer of the team. On the defence, Collins was assisted by Hodsdon at right defence and Kroeck at goal. Kroeck came out for the team for the first time this year and developed into one of the best goaltenders in the east. M 9 -- 1 r1 ' r 1 S ■ J ' l M 1 T ' If n m 1 179 tKftc Ccam Carlyle H.

When the season closed with a 31-22 victory over Bates, the team had won eleven out of fifteen games, while every team on the schedule with the ex- ception of Harvard, with whom there was no return game, fell before the Maroon and White. The season opened with an exceptionally strong squad reporting for practice. Captain Gowdy, Smith, Roser, Thompson, Marshman and Hale were all letter men, while Tumey, Beal, Grayson, Bike, Barrows, and Kane completed a very strong nucleus. The team that started the season by winning the first game against the strong M. I. T. team — 22 to 9 — was Smith, left forward, Tumey right forward, Marshman center, Capt. Gowdy left guard and Bike right guard. These five regulars all hail from the Connecticut Valley within 20 miles of the Drill Hall and were known as the All Valley Five. The next game was played with Trinity and the team gained a decisive vic- tory of 28-18. The next four games were away from home and each one resulted in a defeat. Connecticut Aggie, Tufts, Harvard and M. I. T. all managing to gain the large end of the score. The M. I. T. game, however, was the team ' s last defeat and it was won in the last few seconds of play by a basket from mid- court which gave Tech the game by two points. Nine victories followed: — Boston University, Middlebury, Tufts, Connecticut Aggie, Wesleyan, Williams, Clark and Bates all going down to defeat. Every game was fast, clean and hard-fought and the M. A. C. team was known everywhere as having wonderful pass work, a strong offence and an almost impenetrable defence. iVlthough we are losing by graduation Captain Gowdy and Smith, two almost invaluable men, besides Thompson and Roser, the two first string subs who got into almost every game, the prospects look good for next year. There will be three of the original this year ' s team to start with next year as a nucleus. The Freshman team also had a good record winning 8 out of their 10 games, and there should be some good material available from the class of 1925 next year. 181 i:{)e caston of 1922 M.

C. form a large part of the athletic curriculum of the college, for through these Freshman teams the coaches and student body are able to select, at least in their mind ' s eye, the men who will make the Varsity the following years. The fact that the Athletic Management is careful to arrange a schedule, and hire a coach for the Freshmen, is proof enough that such teams are an advantage. The Freshman rule, as at work in the majority of the large Eastern colleges, is a great thing in the development of the undergraduate. In the first place the Freshman has a chance to get settled in college life, as class athletics do not take as much time as Varsity. In the second place class teams form a foundation which can be built upon, the Freshman is given a chance to compete with men of his own rating, not with those of many more years experience. Again, the men coming from different schools have been trained by different methods; the Freshman team enables them to be drilled according to the Aggie system. Final- ly, it promotes class spirit, " pep, " and the essentials of a good college spirit. Freshmen teams, at least in the major sports, have a great advertising value. By going to near-by high schools, or by having the high school teams come to the college for games, the college is advertised. A team coming to a college, meeting a good, clean playing team, being well entertained, will go away with a favorable impression, and it will have a great influence upon the selection of an Alma Mater. Taking everything into consideration, a one-year rule would be a good thing in every college. Freshmen teams at Aggie with outside schedules comprise baseball, football, and basketball. 19 ' 24 ' s baseball team of the spring of 1921, coached by John J. Maginnis, captained by " Art " Nicoll, and managed by " Vic " Cahalane, was a credit to the class and college. Playing a hard schedule of games the team came through with victory in more than their share of the contests. In spite of the fact that the Varsity used numerous men off and on, the team was a success. In the Sophomore game at Commencement, however, superior pitching was too much for them, and they lost the game 4-2. The football team of 1925 started out this fall with a fine looking eleven. With a vast amount of material and coached by " Sonny " Mansell, ex-Aggie end, the team has been a credit to all concerned. Ending the schedule with the defeat of our old rival Williston Academy, the team entered the Sophomore con- test confident of a win. Poor defense, coupled with injuries to one of their best men, enabled the Sophomores to win 20-14. 1925 ' s basketball team started with such a vast quantity of good material that Coach Gore promised a banquet if the season was gone through without a defeat. In spite of losing several good men through ineligibility, the team bids fair to complete its contract. With high scorers in Sullivan and Samuels, the team is beating the best preparatory schools in the valley. 183 Jfregijman pas!eljall==l924 Jfregijman pas etiaU eam Clasig of 1924 Kane, Catcher F.

Smith. Smith ruminated his chewin ' calmly. General: " Well. ' ' " Smith: " Howdy. " General: " Don ' t you salute officers? " Smith, mistaking the general ' s gold hat cord for cavalry yellow: " See here. Buddy, I may be a recruit, but I don ' t salute no damn cavalryman! " We have the above mentioned cavalrymen minus the epithet. If you see a youth equipped with boots and spurs, remember that the spurs are not for the purpose of keeping his feet from sliding off the desk. Seriously, we believe in cavalry drill at M. A. C, and after going through the grind of infantry training, cavalry arouses enthusiasm. Military training started at M. A. C. with the founding of the college in 1867. Professor Goodell, later president of the college, was the first instructor. He taught cavalry tactics and drill. In 1870 the federal government detailed Capt. H. E. Alvord, U. S. A., to the position of " Professor of Military Science and Tactics " at the college. An artillery unit was maintain- ed, the equipment being two brass field pieces besides small arms, etc. At times the cannon would be used to fire salutes on the town common. Other command- ants came to the college, and the drill was changed to infantry. Among the men who have been in charge was Lieut. W. M. Wright, Snd U. S. Infantry. He was at the college from 1896 to 1898 and during the recent war was made a major general. During the World War an S. A. T. C. unit was maintained at the college. This was reorganized in January of 1919 when Col. Walker established a cavalry unit. Cavalry proved immediately popular, and several juniors and seniors elected 187 drill. The unit is now in charge of Major F. E. Shnyder, 13th Cavalry, with Major Herman Kobbe, 13th Cavalry, in charge of equitation. Capt. V. V. Shu- feld, 13th Cavalry, assists Maj. Kobbe. Dismounted ecjuitation is in charge of Capt. Thomas Brady, Jr., 10th cavalry. The enlisted personnel consists of twenty-one men. A large stable has been built to house the sixty horses, the maximum now allowed the college. Aside from the routine drill, several other attractive features are connected with the military. In the spring of 19 ' 21 the center of the High School Day pro- gram was the mounted demonstration. A polo team has been organized, the first one in the history of the college. This sport requires excellent horsemanship, coolness, good judgment, a keen eye, and skill with the mallet. Another feature, the pistol team, attracts considerable attention. During the last season the team out-shot the Harvard and Norwich marksmen, altho this was the first year of pistol shooting at the college. Military training develops men physically, morally, and mentally. It gives poise and self-control. Without question the cavalry drill is popular with the men. The beat of horses ' hoofs on the road, the clink of sabers, the dull creak of leather, the feel of the horse underneath, — all stir the blood and quicken the spirit as does nothing else. M. A. C. is fortunate in having a mounted organiza- tion such as is now on the campus. 188 r _ J IL d ■ Lmj U H H ! l P H M Hj b | Wmk r4l a . H ' !

Lmdskog, ' ' i3, Roister Doi.ticr.s 192 Monm } ttic at iH. . €, NON-ATHLETICS at this college now include six principal activities, namely- The Musical Organizations, consisting of Glee Club and Orchestra, the Roister Doisters, the college dramatic society; the Collegian, published weekly; the Squib, the college humorist, appearing six times a year; the Index, the year- book, published each year by the Junior class; and the Debating Society, re- cently revived since the war. There is no limit as to the number of activities in which a man may take part; however the tendency is to encourage more to try out for one or two things than for a few to be engaged in many. The stu- dent body is well represented this year, as shown by the total number engaged in the activities — 109, out of a total of 136 positions. These organizations, though managed separately, are all supported by a student tax, paid at time of registration. They. are under the control of a central non-athletics board, whose supervision, however, is mostly of a financial nature. This board is composed of the President of the College, member ex-ofEcio, two members of the faculty, Profs. Machraer and Gould, two representatives from the Associate Alumni — Worthley ' 18, and Mellen ' 21, a general manager ap- pointed by the President — Prof. F. P. Rand, and one representative of each of the activities represented, usually the manager. The organization of this committee took place in 1915, bringing, so to speak, order out of chaos. Harold C. Robbins, until recently professor of physics at the college and always interested in non-athletics here, was instrumental in bring- ing this about. Up to 1919 he served as faculty manager, while Prof. Machmer has served as chairman of the board since the beginning. Much credit is also due Prof. Lockwood and Prof. Gould, ' 13 and Lawrence Dickinson ' 10, for the way in which they have always encouraged non-athletics at the college. Recently a credit system was instituted here, by which gold and silver medals are awarded annually to the leaders in non-athletic activities. These medals, in the form of a very neat watch charm, correspond in a way to our athletic M ' s. The custom was started in order that the men might receive some recognition for faithful service, a need which the non-athletic board felt was quite urgent. At the same time they wished the men not to lose sight of the fact that the real benefit from any activity comes from taking part in it, not from the recompense which one receives afterwards. Non-athletics is a broad subject and has been touched upon but very lightly here. These activities have a distinct p lace in college life, for they furnish the avocational training necessary to a liberal education. It is to be hoped that they will be supported in the future by workers as interested and as faithful as those men who have brought them into high repute in the past. 193 -f. fii i 1 fte i ■ ■ ■. ' ■ ' ■■ ■ ' tiiiWiiiiM lilti- ' ibm AGGIE Musical Clubs have a reputation to uphold, built up by fifty years of creditable singing and loyalty to the college. Their work, although at first of a simple nature, has from the start been of the highest calibre. The suc- cess of the clubs has not always been what it might have been, however, due to several handicaps. Until recent years they have lacked a good experienced coach, and naturally enthusiasm was lacking, both in the clubs and in the whole student body. Then there has been the all-important financial question, which for a long time limited college activities along this, as along other, lines. The history of the musical clubs actually begins with the first class in college, that of 1871, and they have indeed passed through many interesting stages since then. Until recent years the College Choir, composed of from 6 to 12 men, was a regular college institution, for no matter what other singing the men did, the college fathers determined that they should not neglect Sunday Chapel. Another organization which has seemingly passed out of existence was that group of men known as the Clark Cadet Band. As early as 1890 this band made itself known, and from 25 to 35 was not an uncommon membership. Such was its reputation, in fact, that it was in demand not only for college functions, but also for many affairs in neighboring towns and cities. In 1906 comes the first semblance of any organization of the college music, when the M. A. C. Musical Association made its first appearance. Before this enthusiasm had been very lax, but with the production of the ' 06 minstrel show, the college was ready and eager for more musical activities. 194 The class of ' 13 was gifted with more than the average musical talent, and for four years in succession, under the leadership of Fred D. Griggs, they cap- tured first place in the interclass sing. To Griggs we also owe some of our better known college songs, as " Aggie Men Are Gathered, " and " Dear Old Massa- chusetts. " Through his influence musical activity took a new lease of life; and in the next year, 1913-14, it received another boom when Geo. Zabriskii 2nd ' 13, and some of the undergraduates, took it upon themselves to secure the services of Mr. John Bland, a New York choirmaster, who came from New York weekly to coach the clubs. The spring vacation of 1914 saw 24 men journeying to New York and New Jersey for their annual spring trip. Concerts were given at Rutherford and Suffern, N. J., three times in New York City, and twice in other places nearby. The clubs were royally received wherever they went, and the success which they achieved was due in large measure to the untiring efforts of Mr. Bland, in working with the clubs and giving them publicity. It was in the Christmas vacation of 1914 that the annual Christmas trip to Boston and vicinity was instituted. Again Mr. Bland turned out an A-1 club, which was received by large audiences at Waltham and Hingham, as well as at three performances at the Somerville Theater. " Ed " Towne ' 15, was leader of the clubs this year, and Frank Anderson, ' 16, the manager. The latter was the author and composer of two songs which were the hits of the trip, while Worthley, ' 18, then a Freshman, proved to be a valuable soloist. 195 The next incursion into the regions of New York and New Jersey took place in the spring of ' 15, and included concerts at such places as Rutherford and Paterson, N. J., Huntington, L. I., and New York City. The trip was pronounced " A Great Social Success, " but due to adverse weather conditions and counter- attractions by Billy Sunday, it left the clubs financially embarassed; in fact, so much so that a New York trip has not been made since then. The quartet that year, composed of Swan, Towne, Worthley, and Hildreth, proved to be one of the best which the college has produced. Besides adding much to the Glee Club program, these men gave a number of concerts during the year in this part of the country, and with their large variety of songs were prepared to meet any occasion. Mention should be made here of " Pluto ' s Daughter, " that first and famous Musical Comedy of Aggie ' s, which put the 1915 Commencement Show in a class by itself. This production, in the Academy of Music, Northampton, was most enthusiastically received, from the scenes in the under world to the very latest styles in ladies ' gowns. The play and lyrics were due to the clever pen of Sydney Masse, ' 15, while Hyde Smith, ' 15, and Anderson, ' 16, wrote some very catchy song hits. With Jimmie T. Nicholson, ' 16, and Kenneth B. Laird, ' 16, leaders of the Glee Club and Orchestra respectively, the clubs kept up their good work in the year 1915-16. The regular Boston trip was made, including six concerts in five days; and on this trip the first Boston Alumni concert was held at the Copley- Plaza Hotel. Frank Anderson was again manager of the Clubs this year, and, assisted by " Dave " Lipshires, ' 18, did much to give them the publicity which they attained. The following year Frank Edwards, ' 17, was elected leader of the Glee Club, but owing to injuries received in football was unable to fill the position, and Worthley was chosen to take his place. The Boston trip was even more than usually successful this year, as eight performances were given, and the clubs branched off to Falmouth and Providence, R. I. before returning home. Several other good trips had to be cancelled later in the season due to extreme war con- ditions. " Kid " Goff, ' 19, and " Eddie " Landis, ' 21, took charge of the Clubs very successfully last year. This season it was thought advisable to develop an or- chestra, without a mandolin club, and " Freddie " Waugh, ' 22, was elected to head this. " Freddie " and " Ray " Vinten, ' 22, Glee Club leader, have both taken an active interest in musical affairs while at the college, and have each written catchy songs which have been the hits of the trips so far this year. One of the most popular concerts with the men last year was the joint per- formance of the clubs with the Mt. Holyoke Clubs at South Hadley, at which each club sang the other ' s college song. Another good trip was the one to Hard- wick, Mass., last May. Although a small village, the men were entertained there with the best the people afforded. This has proven to be the case in- variably in the trips to the smaller towns throughout the state, where hospitality is the by-word. M. A. C. has been fortunate during the last ten years in having so many men who were musically talented, and who were willing to work to put Aggie on the map. They had the pep. They showed what Aggie musical clubs can do. The undergraduates shoidd be ready to keep up this reputation which they have made and to add to it. 196 Jilusiical Clutig December December December December December December January February February February George A.

The first dramatic organization at Aggie came into being in the spring of 1910 under the name of " The Massachusetts Agricultural College Dramatic Society, " and the following season a farcical comedy, The Private Secretary, was presented in Amherst, Montague and Ware. In 1912 the name of the society was changed to " The Roister Doisters, ' ' after one of the first English comedies, Ralph Roister Doister. Under the leader- ship of George Zabriskie, 2nd, ' 13, the club presented in this season What Happen- ed to Jones, giving eight performances and taking it on tour in New York and New Jersey. The following season The New Boy, a farce, was given. In 1913-14, the custom of giving two plays a season was inaugurated, the plays being Mr. Kelly from Kalamazoo and Shakespeare ' s Comedy of Errors. The greatest activity before the war was reached in 1914-15. It was this season that Pluto ' s Daughter, a musical comedy written largely by Frank Anderson ' 16 and S. M. Massie and Hyde Smith ' 15, and managed by Nicholson ' 16, was suc- cessfully presented in Northampton. Her Husband ' s Wife was also given this year. The following season two good plays. Under Cover and A Full House, were presented. At this time the club came under the supervision of the newly created Non-Athletic Activities Board. In 1916-17, soon after The Arrival of Kitty, WILT was declared. The club was re-established in 1919 and presented Officer 666 and Are You A Mason? In 1920, under the leadership of Charles Boardman ' 20, and Jonathan Smith ' 21, the club presented Nothing But the Truth, at Prom time. At com- mencement, Augustus Thomas ' well known play. The Witching Hour, was given. It was in this play that girls first appeared in the cast, the new step greatly in- creasing the possibilities of the organization. Last season was a very successful one from every standpoint, with Carl Bogholt, Don Davidson and manager George Edman, all of ' 21, leading the way. Sheridan ' s classical play. The School for Scandal, was presented at Junior Prom, and was commented on very favorably by discriminating critics. During the Semi-Centennial celebration at commencement John Epps, a historical play of early days at M. A. C, written by Frank Prentice Rand of the English depart- ment of the college, was presented. This play met with immediate success, and was repeated a few nights after the first performance. Much of the credit for this most successful season is due Professor Rand, who acted as adviser, coach, and playwright. The history of the Roister Doisters is one of steady progress. Each year plays of higher rating and greater difficulty than those of the preceding year have been presented, until at the present time the club advocates absolutely the best in drama, and measures its success by the nearness of its approach to the achieve- ment of that ideal. To sum up, the Roister Doisters is a popular activity with the students, is self-supporting, advertises the college, and, most important of all, is doing an invaluable cultural work for M. A. C. 199 9 INDEX 3 ois;ter Boisitersi (Officers FciciiUy Manager . F. P. R and Student Manager G. E. Lindskog. ' i 3 Aiini.stant Maiiager Allan L. Dresser, " 24 President F. V.

In the program of that memorable first commencement of 1871, mention is made of a declamation contest in which the members of the three lower classes took part. In 1873 the Farnsworth declamation contest was established. This was con- tinued for several years when it was replaced by the Burnham Declamation con- test, which was made possible through the generosity of Mr. T. O. H. P. Burn- ham of Boston, and has continued till the present time. The Flint Oratorical contest was established in 1881 by a gift of the late Charles S. Flint, a former trustee of the college. After his death the prizes were continued by a college appropriation for the purpose, and the contest has formed a part of the spring term activities since. During the spring of 1917, when the college, together with the nation, was mobilized, both the contests were discontinued. In 1918, the Burnham and Flint contests returned to a normal basis and the interest in them, which the war interrupted, is slowly returning. ©eijatins IN times past Aggie established a high standard of debating, and a place on the debating team was by no means easily attained, for large numbers of men competed for the position. The students have always recognized the value of being able to express their ideas in a convincing manner, regardless of their field of endeavor. During the war debating received a setback from which it recovered more slowly than most of the other campus activities. The light was kept burning during the dark periods by the annual Freshman-Sophomore debates. As freshmen the class of 1923 defeated the class of 1921, but the follow- ing year the class of 1923 defeated 1922. These two class debates formed the nucleus for the further growth of debating. The varsity team returned to the stage in 1921 when the M. A. C. team and the Springfield team tied in a dual debate on the following question: " Resolved, that the U. S. government should own and operate the railroads. " In 1922 a permanent triangular debating league including M. A. C, R. I. State, and Connecticut Agricultural College was organized. Debating has returned to M. A. C. and if the present is any guide to the future, the college will have some excellent teams. Much of the present success of debating is due to the efforts of Prof. Prince who maintains an unflagging in- terest in this activity. 1 9 2 INDEX Robert H. Beckwith Stanley L. Freeman Kenneth A.

Dur- ing this period of time there have been six different papers edited, five of which were published by the students themselves, and one of these five by the old D. G. K. society. In 1869 came the first written expression of " Aggie " student wit, under the name of " The Grand Menagerie of the Massachusetts Agricultural College, " but only a single volume ever appeared under this name. This same year THE INDEX also made its first appearance. THE REGISTER, edited by the college, appeared in 1871, and though not a student publication, it served as a calendar for the year, appearing regularly in June until 1878. The following year saw the publication of " The Cycle. " This booklet was presented to the public by the D. G. K. society, and though it was a fraternity publication, nevertheless it contained, principally, items which were of interest to the entire student body, and very little fraternity news was printed. " The Cycle " contained about twenty-four pages and was published at Commencement time for ten years. Finally, on October first, 1890, appeared the first real Aggie newspaper, edited by the student body. It was the " Aggie Life, " a three-column paper of eight pages, published bi-weekly, and about the same width as our present " Collegian, " but a few inches shorter. The subscription price was one dollar a year and the first edition was sent to all friends and alumni of the College as a sample. In " Aggie Life " there was a wider discussion of subjects pertaining to agriculture, especially in regard to the agricultural demonstrations conducted here at the College. Thirty years ago last June was the Commencement number which contained Commencement Day poems and addresses. A slight change in policy was apparently adopted in 1892, for a two-column, twelve page edition was substituted for the size of the previous year. For some reason, the term " Aggie " became obnoxious to the ear of the M. A. C. undergraduate and also to many of the alumni. Therefore, in 1901, the student body voted 11,5-4 to exclude the term " Aggie " from all their publica- tions, and on November 6, 1901, the paper was forced to change its name from " The Aggie Life " to " The College Signal. " The new form contained on the average about eighteen pages, with three columns to the page. In the first issue of 1909 a great advance came in the life of the paper, for it was changed to a weekly, of eight pages with four columns to the page. The present size of the COLLEGIAN was then adopted, as was also the general ar- rangement of the other material in the paper. The Massachusetts Collegian officially came into existence in 1914, and that name has probably come to stay through the future years. The policy of the paper is to serve both the alumni and the students to the fullest degree possible and keep uppermost in the minds of all, that watchword — Altogether for M. A.

" Squibby " has been approved by the student body as the official outlet for the college humor, and the publication is proving a distinct asset to the college. Several humorous publications have appeared on the campus at various times, but the first of any permanence was the predecessor of the " Squib, " a four page pamphlet called the " Friday War Cry, " first published on October 23, 1914. The aim of the " War Cry, " as its editors announced, briefly but pungently, in the first issue, was " to knock everyone in college at some time or other. " In the third issue appeared this terse statement under the caption ' Superfluous Explanation ' : " The editors admit a lack of literary training. " In the first issue the editors also ofl ' ered a free copy to anyone whose name appeared in any edition. This ofl ' er was accepted, according to the second edition, by all except George Washington and Tabby. The stafl of this venture was organized under " Sid " Masse, Editor-in-Chief. On May 7, 1915, a new board of editors was announced as a result of competition. The commencement number under this board was a more elaborate magazine of eighteen pages and, with this number, the " War Cry " became a monthly publication. With the first number of the following year, 1915-16, the magazine attained its present size and form, and the staff was reorganized. This issue was the " Name It " number, and the next issue appeared under the name of " The Aggie Squib. " Under this and the succeeding board of editors, the Squib attained a high standard in both its art and literary departments and the publication was in every way a credit to the college. The war, however, caused " Squibby " to suspend publication, for its editors were among the first to enlist. Only one edi- tion appeared in 1917, this by a new board of editors, and then " Squibby " did not appear for two years. In November, 1919, an entirely new board of editors, headed by " Jack " Crawford ' 20, restored " The Squib " to its place on the campus. Too much credit cannot be given this board for their initiative and pluck. The following year the board organized with M. F. Webster as Editor-in-Chief, and under his leader- ship " Squibby " became more prosperous. C. Raymond Vinten, Managing Editor of last year ' s " Squib " succeeded to the position of Editor-in-Chief for the year 1921-22, aided by a staff that is both capable and experienced. " Squibby ' s " humor has always been of the best and the cleanest. The personal " razz " of the early numbers of the " War Cry " was very soon abandoned, and while " Squibby " is unmistakably an " Aggie " product, the type of humor it contains is such that it can be enjoyed as much by the public at large as by " Aggie " men and women. 209 1 9 2 Tmmi N D E X PlOi £ ' ' ■ 1 M liM H| H Hfc JHk ' Ht J |h I hl - hs I M I Ik .i n K £ im n l Hl s Bii llsM I Mj ty i inbex poarb Roger B.

C, 3nbex THE college yearbook or Index, as it is called, of which this meagre book is an example, has been published every year by the Junior Class since the founding of the college. It usually misses the things it should contain, it often contains some things it should not; but its perpetrators have always striven to make it as representative, as accurate, and as wholesomely interesting for the student body and for outsiders in general as was in their power possible. Whether or not it is appreciated as it appears year by year, it stands as a permanent record of the activities and the personnel of the college from the very beginning. Just why the Index is gotten out by the Juniors each year is still a cause for speculation. Nevertheless, along towards the end of its second year in college, each class finds itself facing the problematical question. Of course, everybody else is too busy to bother about preparing a lot of pages to form a book. The Freshman is kept busy dodging his Sophomore spies, while the Sophs in turn assume an uncalled-for importance in dogging their younger brothers about. The Senior spends most of his time in getting engaged or in trying to run college affairs, and what is left for the Junior? Not much, except to be a Junior and put out the Index. And a perilous undertaking it is sometimes, too. So far not many casualties have resulted from its publication, but we make no prophecies for the future. The first class in college, that of ' 71, brought forth their Index in 1870. An insignificant-looking pamphlet of 28 pages, paper-bound, devoid of advertising matter, it contains the class histories, lists of the trustees, faculty, and students, then 114 in number, the membership of the various activities, and a list of the books and papers to be found in the old reading room, then a distinctly important feature of the college. The number of siders, moustaches, full beards, burnsides, and " dusenberries " also totalled 114, according to a conspicuous list entitled " Qui a des Cheveux. " Down through the ages from that first volume, the Aggie Index has found its wandering course. Soon there appeared larger, fancily-decorated booklets, and later the real cloth-bound books, as we now know them. There occurred occa- sionally in the older books one or two photographs of prominent faculty or stu- dents, and from this developed the custom of including individual pictures of the Juniors. This custom worked admirably until the book of 1910, when — lo and behold — there appeared baby pictures of the men besides the regular rogues ' - gallery specimens. Like all other of the college activities, the publication of the Index has not always been a path strewn with roses. Nevertheless its development is interest- ing, as one finds by digging into the yellowed pages of old volumes, which are full of little items of interest in the college life of yesteryears. Until the writing of a much-needed M. A. C. history is undertaken by some ambitious soul, these Indexes will be one of the most valuable sources of information of the college which we now have. 211 :i 1 1 ,i_ 1 gff ; J f f ' W ' " V B " ■■ii ' ' l ■ f ■■ ,Z. .J Pl 4 ' ' ISf SJ Jlolbetg of i9on= tf)lEtics; iHebalg illcbals; tnarbeb in 1921 Carl M.

Wendell, ' 23 ©ancesf LEST the reader think that this is a thesis for a Ph.D. from a girls ' seminary, let it be known that, when the occasion demands, our heroes of gridiron, court, rink, track and diamond can lay aside the attire of their more vigorous pastimes, clothe themselves in gorgeous raiment, and skillfully pilot soft, clinging, palpitating creations across the lubricated floor with that undulating movement that shows sangfroid, physique, perfect rhythm, and absolute mastery of the situation. Don ' t think that the athletes are the only ones that can effectually decorate the waxed plank. The rest of us are right there when it comes to a tight squeeze. Dances at this institute come under three classifications : (1) Informal: — That which costs but a few paltry shekels; occurs during the best part of the afternoon and the worst part of the evening; to which one may, with perfect propriety and an even chance of a successful outcome, take a girl one has never before seen or heard of but whose qualities are vouched for by a firm friend (never take a chance on the roommate of your friend ' s girl, she ' s the plumber of the two). (2) Junior Prom: — That which sets one back all one has plus all one can borrow, beg, or steal (total expense always exceeds total resources) ; endures seventy -two hours, no time out for eating and sleeping; begins with an all night dance and ends with a chapel service — which is going in the right direction; to which one takes either the girl one intends to tie up to for life or a girl who knows for sure that one is never going to seriously consider her; demands the type of uniform worn by a ward politician at a fireman ' s ball. (3) Sophomore-Senior Hop: — That which occurs at that season in the life of the average Senior when he is wondering whether dad is going to finance a trip through the mountains before he settles down to the grind of earning the price of a ham sandwich or he (Senior) must go out into the chilly blasts of a Labra- dorean world of rocks and icebergs which chills his boyish soul despite the fact that the temperature at midnight on Boston Common is permissive of sound slumber, when the " cops " are kind; costs a significant sum to the ordinary mortal, but let ' s not think of the base metal when all the world ' s gay; endures one night in fact but years in memory; necessitates that one consider long and thoughtfully before asking her to add to the pleasure of the occasion; demands white " pants " (in addition to the B. V. D. ' s), and don ' t get " em too thin; if successful, winds up the college career in the most satisfactory manner. Last but not least a few words should be written regarding the attitude of the faculty toward the pastimes of youth, dancing in particular. Doc X is quoted from a reliable source as having stated that, physiologically speaking, dancing consisted in " wrastlin " ' round with a bunch of sweaty women. " On the other hand. Doc Y, a " looper " at the art, went all the way from Cairo up to Constantinople to see the Whirling Dervishes perform. He says he knows they have perfect control physically because he himself saw every muscle in their bodies move. We have not been to Constantinople yet to verify this, but Doc is a man of unquestionable veracity. Altho these two scientists hold differing views, most of the faculty are tolerant if not actually enthusiastic. 214 19 2 3 ' ' INDEX Beal Spring Al-exander Sargent gowdy vinten thompson moseley Informal Committee 0Uitex6 Charles R.

A. C. ' s Semi-centennial is that it was as much a success as the Amherst Commencement game was, from Aggie ' s stand- point. We do not remember the error in the ninth inning which filled the bases; we can see only the players being carried off the field victorious. So neither do we keep in mind the fact that it rained on Monday, June 13, or that such and such a program was not carried out correctly. We look back on the whole and see it only as a glorious and fitting series of events, a veritable gem in Aggie ' s rich history. Our Semi-centennial was truly an Aggie undertaking, pushed by Aggie spirit and backed by Aggie loyalty. It fulfilled all hopes of those to whom it meant so much, and it was worthy of the work of the many faculty members, alumni and students whose co-operation made it what it was. This event had been looked forward to for a long time, and there was great disappointment that, on account of war conditions, the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the college was unable to be celebrated in 1917. However, it was resolved at that time to have, if possible, an even greater celebration to commemorate the graduation of Aggie ' s first class in 1871, and that resolution was carried out to the full. Coming as it did in a period of rebuilding, after the college had made such costly sacrifices in the world war, the event had a deep significance for Aggie men. With the thought of the great patriotic services which Aggie rendered in the war, what could be finer than to look back fifty years and trace its history and the steps by which it has developed from smallest beginnings? And then to look forward and plan for even finer deeds and higher ambitions. ' Then, too, there was the new Memorial Building, just completed, the dedica- tion of which fitted in so appropriately with the other exercises of the semi- centennial. " This sepulchre in our garden, " as it was termed by Dean Lewis in his dedication speech, stands as a permanent memorial to the fifty-one Aggie men who lost their lives in the war, and serves as a half-century milestone for the college on her road to successful achievement. It is now seeing good service as a center of student life on the campus. The building was at once opened to the public upon its completion, and pressed into service even before its dedication. It served as the headquarters for the alumni, different rooms being assigned to the various classes. The students immediately made use of the fine dance floor by holding the Sophomore- Senior Hop there on the last night of the celebration. Throughout the five days the building was thronged with admirers of its beauty and its serviceability. All those who were on the campus at Commencement last June helped in the successful carrying out of the Semi-centennial, in that theyadded to it their own spirit, a spirit which not one who attended could help but enter into. Esti- 221 mates place the total number of visitors at more than one thousand, with about forty percent of the total alumni of the college included in this figure. The whole affair was in the hands of a committee of some twenty men, faculty, students, and alumni, and the highest praise can be given to these for their untiring efforts. This was, for many alumni, their first return to the college since their grad- uation, and was by far the largest alumni reunion ever held here. Even the old campus seemed to catch the spirit and donned its best holiday attire to greet its sons, one and all. The spacious fields about the campus pond, the lawns and walks about the buildings, all were at their best. The trees seemed to cast down a benevolent shade as they smiled down upon their old friends, and with the stately Memorial Building in the center of it all, the picture was complete. The program of the semi-centennial covered only five days, June 10 to 15 inclusive, but into these five days was crowded a series of events carefully planned out and executed by the committee in charge, so that they took place smoothlj ' , precisely, and without a mistake. Each day had a definite place in the cele- bration, and its activities were planned accordingly. The first day launched the anniversary program auspiciously. Friday, June 10, was observed as Citizen ' s Day, and exercises were held which were of special benefit to outside visitors. Addresses were made by His Excellency the Governor Channing H. Cox, Dr. Arthur W. Gilbert, ' 04, State Commissioner of Agriculture, and the Honorable Henry C. Wallace, Federal Secretary of Agri- culture. These men spoke about the general field of agriculture, why it should be taught and practiced more in New England, and what M. A. C. has done for the agriculture of the country. Among the other events of the day was the Faculty-Senior baseball game, won by the Faculty 7-6. The Faculty realized that this was their last chance to take a whack at the Seniors, and they certainly did a good job. The Interclass Sing was won by the Seniors. This sing is held annually during Commencement Week on the steps of Stockbridge Hall, and this year brought out some good talent and original songs and gave our visitors a true display of undergraduate spirit. " John Epps, " the Commencement play, written by Prof. Frank Prentice Rand, and produced twice during the celebration by the Roister Doisters, was in complete harmony with the semi-centennial spirit. It depicted college life here during the early seventy ' s with the " Big Four, " Profs. Clark, Stockbridge, Goess- mann, and Goodell as leaders of the institution. The plot centered about a young man, entering the college as a Freshman, and the whole play brought in numerous interesting scenes of campus life. The play was well received by its audiences, and added much to the success of the semi-centennial. By Saturday, the number of alumni back had reached a total of 750. This day was primarily for the alumni, and they certainly made their presence known all over the campus.

The program was noticeably smooth and complete. The 4-1 baseball victory over Amherst in the afternoon filled the cup of joy to overflowing. It was a fine game, clean and hard fought, and the victory was well earned. The real program of the day concluded with a band concert in front of South College, after which the alumni went to their various houses for fraternity reuiiions. The Baccalaureate Sermon was delivered to the graduating class on Sunday, Dedication Day, and the subject was " Our College and the Common Weal. " The crowning event of the whole Semi-centennial was the dedication of the Mem- orial Building. The dedication address, delivered by Dean Lewis, inspired the throngs of people, seated or standing on the big lawn in front of the building. Dr. Joel E. Goldthwaite cited some of his experiences in the Great War and extolled the courage of the American soldier. Messages were read from General W. M. W right, who was unable to be present, and from Secretary of War John W. Weeks. The day ended quietly with class picnics and smokers, and informal groups in secluded spots on the campus. Anniversary and class day exercises occupied Monday, June 13, and the pro- gram was as scheduled, with the omission of cavalry drill. A notable event of the commencement was the formation of a Varsity Club by about fifty former athletes of the college, to support the athletic council and to hold together the athletic leadership that has graduated throughout the college ' s history. Senior Fence and Class Day exercises were held in front of South College, as is the regular custom, as was also the Junior Frolic, taking place later in the day. One of the most interesting of the meetings, at least for the alumni, was that held on Monday afternoon at which five M. A. C. men, three of them alumni, reviewed in detail aspects of Aggie college life during its fifty years of existence. The speakers were: — Professor F. A. Waugh, N. W. Gillette, ' " 21, W. A. Munson, ' 05, A. F. MacDougall, " 13, and President Butterfield. On Tuesday, regular Commencement exercises were held in the big tent, with the awarding of prizes and conferring of degrees. An interesting feature of the graduation was the presentation of a parchment to each member of the class of fifty years ago, these men having seats of honor on the platform. The parchments, which contained words of greeting and congratulation, were signed by C. A. Gleason, president of the Board of Trustees, and were sealed with the college seal. The class of ' 75 was decreed the winner of the ' 09 reunion cup, with eleven of their twelve living members back for the semi-centennial. The 50-year class, that of ' 71, had practically as good a record, with twelve of their thirteen living members present. No little interest was centered about this little group of old grads, who were honored throughout the celebration. This whole Semi-centennial is an event to be looked back on with pride by all 225 who had any part in it. It certainly must have a distinct place in the lives of all those who were present. Aggie has reached a halfway mark after fifty years of upward climbing from the smallest beginnings. But she is not stopping here. It is merely an incentive to push on further, to do even greater things, to climb ever upwards to develop in realms yet unexplored. Cla£ig Cfjaracterg ACCORDING to the Honor Council, " the goal of education is character. " This maxim being true, behold, on the following pages, some of 1923 ' s most educated men! Of course all ' 23 men have character, but these individuals alone have been honored by the distinction of election as " the class characters " by their revering (?) classmates. The competition was keen. On the night of the election, the first class smoker of the year, Adonis combed his hair nine times, our Athlete wore all three of his " M " sweaters, the Bolshevik refused to shave for a week, and the Business Man came in loaded — with a list of the class debts. The Fusser smiled at our Most Popular Coed, giving the Optimist reason to display his widest grin. The Grind stopped for a moment with his wheel-barrow loaded full of books from the Library, and looked with awe at the Idler who reclined against a post listening to a campaign speech by the Politician. The Rustic rolled in, chewing a straw and clad in his baggiest trousers and flannel shirt. When the Orator started a speech, the Pessimist gnashed his teeth, where- upon the Peppiest member leaped from his chair and called for a long yell for the Terpsichorean who was exhibiting a few fancy steps to the Unsophisticated. At this stage of the meeting, the AVit told a raw one which nearly broke up the election. When order had been restored by our loyal classmate Dean Burns, everyone voted for the man whom he thought was most unfit for the position, and those who had the paper voted twice. Meanwhile the smoke clouds raised by the Smoker had become so thick that the votes could not be counted, so cider and doughnuts were passed around, everyone filled his pipe, the Parson pro- nounced benediction and everyone helped each other home. The next day the sweeper found some ballots on the floor, counted them and announced the elec- tions. Look them over! Politi Clan 3cii er Bolshevik Rustic Terpaicnorean UJit ' 23 npHE Class of 1923 has fared as well as, if not better than, any present class 1 in class contests. The football game with 1922 was decisively won by Captain Grayson ' s team, by the score of 13-0. The next year, 1924 was beaten, our team winning by one touchdown. In the rope-pull we lost to ' 24, and won from ' 22. Both contests, however, were full of fireworks and replete with pep. In a close contest with the ' 22 quintet, the basketballers from ' 23 came out on the long end of the score, while the next winter found " 24 wresting the numeral game from us by a few points. Both contests showed the real spirit of the class, and almost the whole class attended the games. In the Freshman-Sophomore Relay Race, 1923 was successful both times, while in the Annual Hockey game with 1924, the latter nosed out our puck chasers by a single tally. In baseball, we again were victorious twice, the game with ' 24 being played during the Semi- centennial celebrations, and being witnessed by a great crowd of alumni besides members of 1923. Holley had all the 1924 hitters befuddled with his swift balls and tantahzing " drops, " while good work by Hilyard, Faneuf, and the others on the offensive gave our team the bigger score at the end of the ninth inning. In the banquet scrap we did not fare very well, as being new to the ways of man- euvering in combat on a large scale, the men of ' 23 were completely outclassed by ' 22, although the latter had to resort to the use of automobiles inside the zone and cart off those whom they had captured, so that the Senate forfeited the issue to the class of 1923, and we held our sumptuous banquet that evening in the Hotel Bridgeway at Springfield, Mass. The next spring, Fortune again 231 frowned upon us by causing the night of the banquet scrap to be cloudy, and at about three A. M. it was raining " pitchforks, " so that all our ingenious and cun- ning plans went for naught. We met the Freshmen the next morning in back of the Cold Storage plant, and there we made as good a stand against enormous odds as did any of the Hellenes who defended the pass of Thermopylae against the mighty hordes of Xerxes. Encouraged by the appearance of daylight, and by the small numbers of our valiant warriors, the Freshmen, outnumbering us about two to one, were easily victorious. In the only Freshman-Sophomore Debate participated in by our budding orators, 1922 was decisively defeated by Captain Sandow ' s team. In the other non-athletic activities on the Campus 1923 is well represented having some twelve men in the musical clubs and several men in the other activities. As soon as our men were eligible for Varsity sports, 1923 showed its mettle, Hilyard making a berth on the Baseball nine in his Freshman year, and the next fall Mohor, Grayson, Sargent, and Latour being awarded their " M " s ' , for being members of the Varsity Eleven. The next term, Marshman played Varsity Basketball, and Gordon Varsity Hockey, so that 1923, is very well represented in Aggie ' s athlete list, and has early demonstrated her worth as a true representative group at M.
